Language in the amendment says the state Department of Health shall register and regulate centers that produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes. The moratorium allows city staff to come up with proposed zoning regulations for medical marijuana treatment centers and retail outlets, according to Key West Planning Director Donald Craig.Its important because we dont know what the final state regulations will be and how they will affect individual communities, Craig said.Some marijuana advocacy groups, such as the Washington, D.C.,-based Marijuana Policy Project, applaud the citys early efforts.I think thats very beneficial for the residents of Key West, Deputy Director of State Policies Robert Capecchi said. Its wise to start thinking about regulating them. At the meeting, there was some concern over regulating the distance of medical marijuana treatment centers to 1,000 feet from schools and churches. However, Craig was quick to point out that the approved moratorium is not final. He has already had two or three people inquire about a business tax license for medical marijuana sales. It does not cement in place any regulation whatsoever of medical marijuana outlets, he said. We want to better understand the law if its passed and what its effects are going to be andItll create new zoning category if voters approve medical marijuanaKEY WESTBy ANTHONY CAVEacave@keynoter.comHOMECOMING IN MARATHON Marathon High Schools homecoming parade on Thursday drew crowds all along U.S. 1 to watch it and collect the candy the students were tossing from their floats. The parade was held up shortly after it started because the truck pulling the seniors float broke down. But once it got going again, things went smoothly. Along with the floats, several classic cars joined the parade.Keynoter photos by WILLIAM AXFORDCouncil: Regulate gun rangesThe Marathon City Council is looking to deter backyard gun ranges within city limits with a sport shooting and training range ordinance, which had its first reading at Tuesdays City Council meeting. Mayor Dick Ramsay initiated it, citing a gun range installed earlier this year in Big Pine Key resident Doug Varrieurs yard. The gentleman starting a gun range started me thinking how we can improve the system and basically encourage people to not shoot in their backyard, Ramsay said. This [ordinance] is authorizing the possibility of a gun range. Anyone who is interested in opening a gun range will have to be reviewed by our standards. Varrieur made national headlines with his shooting, even being featured on Comedy Centrals Colbert Report. The open-air range borders a heavily trafficked canal and several other single-family houses, which caught the attention of law enforcement and government officials countywide.State law says local governments cannot regulate most shooting on privately owned land. Doing so could cause elected officials to be fined and removed from office.Varrieur plans to move his outdoor range inside when he returns to the Keys from North Carolina in December, having made his point highlighting what he calls the states lax gun laws. Varrieur supports an enclosed range within city limits in addition to openair ranges. One of the things Ive been working on all year long is educating people on how to safely do what Im doing, Varrieur said. All the law says is that you cant fire in a reckless and negligent manner. But theres no definition of the two words in the law. Monroe County Sheriff Rick Ramsay believes shooting outdoors near neighbors is classified as reckless and negligent.

The tax, in place since 1996, passed with almost 72 percent of the vote the last time it was put up to referendum in 2004. Its scheduled to expire in December 2015. Superintendent Mark Porter said the renewal is a no-brainer. What were asking [for] is simply continuous, Porter said. Despite having a total 1.5 percent county sales tax the highest in South Florida after the base 6 percent state sales tax tourists rather than the residents pay a significant portion of Monroe Countys sales tax.According to 2007-08 National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data co-sponsored by the countys Tourist Development Council, tourists shell out about 55 percent of all sales tax in the county.Some specifics about what the tax money would be used for, like technology advancements, are undefined. But Porter said about two-thirds of the estimated $157.3 million the district would receive from the sales tax in the next decade will go toward new construction at Plantation Key School, Gerald Adams Elementary in Key West and Stanley Switlik Elementary in Marathon.Despite construction, Porter does not expect anyIt would go toward school repairs, securityBy ANTHONY CAVEacave@keynoter.comELECTION 2014: SCHOOLS TAXHit, run driver finally faces trialAlready sentenced to 15 years in federal custody, a Big Coppitt Key man now faces local prosecution for a deadly hit-and-run crash in May 2013. Joseph B. Symington, 33, is accused of driving a pickup truck that struck and killed Niemand Vonhasberg, 50, who was walking along U.S. 1 near mile marker 5.5. A status hearing on the local charges, filed in August 2013, will be held Monday in Monroe County Circuit Court. Prosecution was delayed because Symington was being held in federal custody to answer charges of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm stemming from a November 2012 arrest in Hialeah.In that case, Hialeah detectives working an autotheft investigation found a loaded .38caliber revolver in Symingtons jacket pocket when the officers questioned suspects spotted in a parked car. Charges under a federal armed career criminal law were filed in June 2013. Last October, Symington pleaded guilty on the weapons charge.Defense attorneys argued against having Symington classified as a violent career criminal, which carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years. Some of Symingtons previous convictions did not rise to the level of violent offenses, they contended. U.S. District Judge William Zloch ruled against the defense and imposed the 15 years on Jan. 22.

school closings. We will do these reconstructions with minimal disruptions, he said.The remaining funds will be used to remodel nine schools across the district, including Key West High School and Sugarloaf School, as well as for security improvements such as cameras and motion detectors.Larry Murray, an outspoken district watchdog and former Audit and Finance Committee member, does not believe the district has done enough to be transparent about where the half-cent sales tax money will go. Its wholly lacking in the level of specificity Id like to see, Murray said. Ahead of the November referendum, Porter said that the citizen-run Support Keys Schools II Political Action Committee has started up again.Support Keys Schools II PAC President and former Monroe County School Board member Steve Pribramsky said he cant imagine why someone would say no to the referendum.Elsewhere, the Upper Keys Business and Professional Womens Club sent out an e-mail this week asking for a yes vote on the half-cent tax referendum. Monroe County School Board member Andy Griffiths, who has been on the board since 1992, also supports the referendum and equates the half-cent sales tax to buying a luxury item, like beer. Whether its a resident or tourist, spending $1,200 a year in beer would result in an additional $6 because of the half-cent tax. Its preferable to export your tax, Griffiths said. The items that tourists purchase, all that is taxable.

GARCIABridges and Helms down to the wireThe last remaining vacancy on the Circuit Court bench in Monroe County will be filled Nov. 4 by one of two attorneys who both pledge to streamline court operations.Bonnie J. Helms, 49, and Jack Bridges, 46, seek the six-year term as one of four Circuit Court judges in the states 16th Judicial Circuit. It has been a tumultuous year at the Circuit Court level in Monroe County, with one judge stepping down before his term expires and another taking extended medical leave.Tegan Slaton, elected in 2008, was removed from the bench in August after apparent medical problems affected his ability to oversee cases.Slaton quietly sought reelection in the nonpartisan August primary but was outpolled by Helms (46.3 percent of the vote) and Bridges (30.8 percent).Judge David Audlin resigned in May, two years into his second term, saying his personal life had received invasive attention because of role as a jurist. Gov. Rick Scott appointed Key West attorney Tim Koenig to fill out Audlins term.Incumbent Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones was reelected in August, and Judge Luis Garcia was automatically re-elected with no opposition.Circuit Court judges generally handle felony criminal cases and major civil suits. They earn $146,000 annually.Judicial candidates are limited to what they can say while campaigning. The Florida Bar notes, Judicial candidates are prohibited by law from making predictions and promises about issues that could arise once they are on the bench because their job is to make impartial decisions that relate to the law on the cases before them. Both Bridges and Helms have advocated expansion of counseling and mediation programs to reduce strain on the court system.

On other issues the Affordable Care Act, education policy, balancing the federal budget and keeping federal flood insurance affordable in South Florida they differ markedly.Curbelo said a Garciabacked flood-insurance bill designed to stall rate hikes does not solve serious problems faced by Florida ratepayers. Garcia said opposition of what he calls Curbelos tea-party friends made it difficult to pass a bill at all.Both have faced sharp attacks from their opponents camps. Garcias former chief of staff was sentenced to a 90day jail term for a plot to submit dubious absentee ballots; Garcia denied knowledge of the effort and condemned it. Curbelo has taken criticism for refusing to release the identities of clients of the lobbying firm that pays him, saying the company belongs to his wife. District 26 covers from Key West to the Kendall area, with population estimates from 750,000 to more than 800,000. Congressional representatives are paid $174,000 annually and serve two-year terms. The District 26 race has been a focus of the national Democratic and Republican parties, and the Keys are considered by many to be the area that could swing the election, explaining why Curbelo and Garcia are spending so much time and resources in the Keys.Congressman tries to hold off challengerELECTION 2014: CONGRESSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJ Please come and join the farewell celebration for Donny and Kathy Melau, Margie Birdsell and some of their various pooches.

Some areas are really close to other properties. Do you want your animals and kids outside when the neighbor shoots rounds off in their backyard? Like his father the mayor, Sheriff Ramsay believes an enclosed gun range within city limits would deter people from shooting outside. Camaraderie, safety and education are some of the reasons why the Ramsays believe the ordinance would deter people from following in Varrieurs footsteps.Opening an indoor shooting range is costly and involves a wide range of oversight. Philip Condella, owner of the 2,500-squarefoot Big Coppitt Gun Club shooting range, said a properly enclosed range costs at least $600,000 to build and requires $2 million in liability insurance. Ranges must properly dispose of lead, copper and other metals from discharged projectiles.Recycling air, soundproofing walls and the location are other considerations that have to be accounted for with ranges, Condella said.Its a safe sport as long as youre educated, said Condella, who allows pistols and rifles to be fired at his range. I dont see anything wrong with gun ranges provided that theyre in a commercial area and not residential. Outside of the building, the shooting sounds like someone hitting a concrete wall with a hammer.

told the judge. It is what it is.Federal public defenders filed a July motion seeking to have the sentence reduced. No court action has occurred since. Symington has been arrested numerous times in Monroe County. He served three years in state prison, from November 2006 to September 2009, on convictions of fleeing a law enforcement officer with no regard for safety, driving with a suspended or revoked license, and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.From 2001 to 2006, he was arrested in Monroe County 13 times. Counts include driving under the influence, DUI causing property damage, leaving the scene of an accident, and driving with a suspended license.Subsequent charges include several violations of probation, possession with intent to sell cocaine, marijuana possession, smuggling contraband into jail, aggravated battery and being a habitual offender for repeatedly being caught driving with a revoked license. Assistant State Attorney Christine Poist, who is prosecuting charges from Vonhasbergs death in May 2013, arranged to have Symington returned for trial. Symington is accused of being at the wheel of a 1996 GMC Sonoma pickup truck that struck Vonhasberg from behind as the homeless man walked along the northbound shoulder of U.S. 1. Vonhasberg apparently had been living in the Keys for at least four years.Symington is accused of driving across the median and fleeing south. Investigators later received a tip that led to the pickup truck.A bond of $500,000 was imposed for the hit-and-run charges but Symington apparently cannot be released while serving the federal sentence.Scholl up for renewal TuesdayThe Key West City Commission will consider a two-year extension for interim City Manager Jim Scholl when the board meets Tuesday.Scholl, who had served as city manager from 2007 through 2012, was hired on a one-year interim basis, replacing then-City Manager Bob Vitas, this past July. Vitas and the city parted ways when it became clear he and City Attorney Shawn Smith dont like each other and couldnt get along. Scholls current contract pays him $180,000 annually. If approved, Scholl would remain city manager and keep the same yearly salary until July 2016, Smith said. Approving Scholls contract would nullify a sevenperson search committee for a new city manager. Each city commissioner and Mayor Craig Cates appointed a member to the committee in August. City Commissioner Billy Wardlow said Scholl would be a stabilizing force. It depends how the vote goes, he said. If he collects the four votes, then he will be in. I would give him the opportunity to go for another two years. Also on the agenda for the commission, which meets at 6 p.m. at Old City Hall on Greene Street:The City Commission will vote on a resolution that would add one-day bus passes throughout the Lower Keys and Key West. Under the resolution, a Key West one-day pass would cost $4, a Lower Keys Shuttle (it runs between Key West and Marathon) one-day pass would cost $8 and a Superpass, for use on both the Lower Keys Shuttle and within Key West, would be $12. However, the one-day passes would not qualify for reduced fares, which include student and military discounts.Ahead of the November ballot, the City Commission will look to approve a resolution supporting Amend ment 1, which would shift a third of taxes on real estate transactions over the next 20 years toward land conservation and protecting the states water sources.If approved, manager would get two yearsBy ANTHONY CAVEacave@keynoter.comKEY WESTthen well come up with the proposed regulations. The Miami-based Florida Medical Marijuana Treat ment Center Institute hosts one-day seminars on the money-making end of medical marijuana.

Meisel Holdings Chief Executive Officer Marc Meisel, who was at the meeting, said the nightly cost would be in the $500-plus range. Rockville, Md., based Meisel Holdings bought the Spindrift last month, along with the 17-room Southwinds Motel at 1321 Simonton St. and 15-room Ocean Breeze Inn at 625 South St.The Planning Board approved a major redevelopment plan for a new restaurant at 921 Truman Ave., on the former site of the Kyushu Japanese Restaurant, which was destroyed in a January 2011 fire.

Depending on where you live within the city, the current limits are from 25 feet high up to 40 feet.Perhaps more importantly, it would also translate into significant flood insurance savings for those who decide to elevate their properties. The higher a home is above FEMAs base flood elevation, the minimum flood level that determines flood insurance rates, the lower the flood insurance rate. Most of Key West is under varying flood zones, which relates to a propertys proximity to the coastline.A home built three feet below BFE costs about $6,700 annually in flood insurance. But a home elevated to meet BFE would drop that rate to about $1,300 a year, according to city background information. Under the referendum, any property could go a maximum of four feet above BFE, which would equate to an annual flood insurance rate of less than $450.However, any elevation above BFE in the citys Historic District would require formal Historic Architectural Review Commission approval.I think it creates opportunities for people to take proactive steps to minimize their risk from flooding, The Nature Conservancys South Florida conservation director Chris Bergh said. That risk is likely to go up as a result of sea level rise. Grassroots group Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe, or FIRM, also supports the referendum. However, Monroe County commissioner and FIRM co-founder Heather Carruthers said people need to understand that it would not be mandatory and it wouldnt happen overnight. Scott Fraser, the citys FEMA coordinator, knows a thing or two about that. He has been working on the referendum since 2008. He even collaborated with FIRM and Key West environmental group Last Stand on the referendums language.Fraser reiterated that the biggest bang for your buck is getting to BFE, but he also wants residents to account for FEMAs new flood zone maps coming in around 2018.I would urge anybody that came in here today to go one foot extra over what theyre anticipating, Fraser said.The new maps are expected to increase by one foot across most flood zones.The goal is a reduction in premiumsBy ANTHONY CAVEacave@keynoter.comELECTION 2014: KEY WEST RENTING?BUYING?

A resolution calling for a deepwater injection well, estimated to cost around $7 million, was dropped from the Monroe County Commissions agenda Friday in expectation of a settlement. A citizens group called Dig Deep Cudjoe in July filed a formal petition opposing renewal of state environmental permits for shallowwater injection wells at the countys main Lower Keys wastewater treatment plant, still under construction on Cudjoe Key. Shallow-water injection wells might not protect nearshore waters from damaging effects of the wastewater, Dig Deep members said. Shallow-water injection wells are drilled down to around 120 feet. Deep wells are at least 2,000 feet deep. The deeper well would have added around $7 million to the construction cost. We have to do everything we can to protect our unique coral reef resources, which are a big part of our economy, group attorney Ralf Brookes said. County Commissioner Danny Kolhage placed an agenda item on the commissions Friday meeting in Key West seeking support for the more expensive deepwater well as an environmental safeguard. Kolhage on Friday pulled the well issue from the agenda, saying a settlement could be near. The Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority oversees construction of the Cudjoe Regional Wastewater System, to serve 9,000 Lower Keys homes and businesses, for the county. FKAA Executive Director Kirk Zuelch said Friday that discussions with Dig Deep Cudjoe members earlier this week helped resolve some disputes. We talked about our shared concerns for protection of the environment, Zuelch said. We all want to make sure the plant and discharge from the plant does not have any negative impact on surface water or underground. Zuelch said a combination of scientific review of the project and continued monitoring of conditions may lead to a settlement pact this week.Philosophically were in agreement on many of the requirements, Zuelch said. Its a matter of wordsmithing and making sure we have [action] triggers in place.The Cudjoe Regional System, one of the final major elements of Monroe Countys mandatory wastewater-treatment plan, will cost an estimated $162 million to $170 million. The Marathon City Council on Tuesday voted to abandon one city-owned road and part of another. Theyre at 2980 Dolphin Drive and Ocean Drive on Crawl Key. The Dolphin Drive abandonment was requested by Thomas Hirchak, who argued the city owns a portion of his driveway. The Crawl Key abandonment was requested by John Morris, found and owner of Bass Pro Shops. Morris abandonment includes waterfront access. He will pay the city $200,000, which Mayor Dick Ramsay said will be used for future wateraccess projects. Abandonments are only here and there and theyre scrutinized very carefully, he said. The first criteria is if the abandonment is in the best interest of the neighbors and the city. Ramsay said the Crawl Key road benefited no one. John Wolfe, the attorney representing Hirchak, said the requested portion of the abandonment on Dolphin Drive is less than 1,500 square feet and is part of Hirchaks driveway. He said Hirchak believed that portion of the road was his when he bought his property. No one knew it was city property until the last survey was done on the last sale, Wolfe said. The key thing is the road does not end on the water. It stops before the water. The values of both properties are expected to increase when the city officially deeds them over. The underground sewer lines have to be maintained by the owners and utility easements are required. The city requires utility easements in every abandonment, Wolfe said. The properties will be assessed and on the tax role by Jan. 1. KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 4A Saturday, October 18, 2014 Theft leads to chop shopA Key Largo man upset about his stolen truck did a bit of online detective work and helped uncover an illegal chop shop 150 miles away. The unidentified man contacted the Monroe County Sheriffs Office detectives the agency didnt say when to tell them he spotted a custom-built fuel tank offered for sale on the craigslist website. The tank had been installed in the bed of the Key Largo mans truck, which was stolen overnight Oct. 5. A friend of the owner called the listed number and learned the fuel tank could be seen at a business between Clewiston and LaBelle in Hendry County, not far from Lake Okeechobee. Sheriffs Office detectives Francisco Gaete and Ian Barnett, investigating the truck theft, contacted their counterparts in Hendry County. Investigators from Hendry County went to the location Tuesday and contacted two men who allowed them onto the property, the Sheriffs Office said in a prepared statement.

According to an October 2011 lawsuit filed against Sherwin-Williams and now defunct Coral Colors Inc., Coral Colors was hired to paint Key Largo School and Marathon High School in 2007. The two paint contracts totaled more than $700,000. A year later, SherwinWilliams issued a five-year limited warranty on the paint. But when the School Board inquired about the warranty after finding signs of defect, Sherwin-Williams did not honor the warranty. The School Board will get the $50,000 in a lump sum payment from SherwinWilliams, according to the settlement. SherwinWilliams declined to comment on the lawsuit, according to company spokesman Mike Conway.

From her unwavering defense of Floridas ban on gay marriage to her outspoken opposition to the Affordable Health Care Act, Attorney General Pam Bondi is known for setting off critics.Throw in last years postponement of an execution so she could host a fundraiser, and an election upset of Bondi seemed possible to some.But no incumbent Florida attorney general has lost reelection in 50 years, and it looks like Bondi will continue the streak. She has raised $5.2 million so far, seven times more than George Sheldon, her Democratic opponent in the Nov. 4 election. Libertarian nominee Bill Wohlsifer has raised even less. Not by chance have Bondis first two TV ads focused strictly on her efforts to combat illicit drugs and human trafficking. With 18 years of experience as a state prosecutor, Bondi is most comfortable when talking about law enforcement. I can only focus on doing whats right, said Bondi, 48. In my mind, that starts with protecting our state against drug dealers, against people raping our kids, against human trafficking, all of those issues. In state politics, only the governor has more power than the attorney general. Its a position with a $128,000 salary that oversees the largest law firm in the state, 475 attorneys and more than 700 investigators and other staffers who can prosecute everything from consumer fraud, white-collar crimes, public corruption and more.I dont think a lot of people understand what effect the attorney general has on their lives, said Christopher McCarty, director of the UF Survey Research Center and director of the University of Floridas Bureau of Economic and Business Research.The sheer scope of the office leaves much room for interpretation in defining what exactly the attorney general does. When Democrat Bob Butterworth served as attorney general from 1986 to 2002, he made prosecuting corporate fraud one of his top priorities. Bondi makes law and order her top priority. If she sees street crime in black and white, she views corporate misconduct in shades of gray. To compete in a TV state like Florida, Sheldon needs more money to combat Bondis messages. Sheldon says he will wait until closer to the election. But with less than three weeks to go, time is running out. When people see him and interact with him, they like him, said David Colburn, director of the Bob Graham Center for Public Service. But I dont think hes getting big crowds, which is a big limitation. Sheldon, 67, a former deputy attorney general who ran and lost the Democratic primary for attorney general in 2002, charges that Bondi protects the interests of corporate America at the expense of the middle class.He campaigned for weeks repeating that Bondi hadnt intervened in any electric utility case. Earlier this month, for the first time, Bondi did, urging Duke Energy to refund customers $54 million for the costs of a nuclear plant that was never built.Construction of a new city hall is expected to start by the end of the year after the Marathon City Council on Tuesday unanimously voted to approve a $4.29 million bid from Big Pine Key-based Pedro Falcon Contractors.Plans call for a 150-seat, 3,456-square-foot meeting hall, about 9,700 square feet of office space and a 1,700 square-foot lobby at 9805 Overseas Highway, where trailers currently house city offices.Falcon beat out five other bidders, coming in with the second-lowest cost. MVP Contractors of Pompano Beach was the least expensive bid at $4.28 million and West Construction of Lake Worth was the most expensive at $5.24 million. City staff is reviewing bids for a construction project manager who will work as a liaison between Falcon and the city. City Manager Mike Puto said the project manager might be one person or a company.LawsuitThe city has been served with a lawsuit from attorneys Richard Warner and John Parente, who represent the estate of Overseas Liquor and Lounge founder Joseph Ardolino. A Freedom of Infor mation Act request is filed within the lawsuit, which says the city has allegedly secreted evidence as requested by the estate and possibly destroyed other requested documents. The attorneys had previously filed a lawsuit against Stuffed Pig Restaurant owner Mike Cinque and Marathon Liquor and Deli owner Ralph Lucignano. That suit claims Cinque and Lucignano conspired to prevent the Overseas from selling liquor with the creation of an ordinance preventing package stores from selling liquor if theyre 1,500 feet from each other or a school.HousingThe citys workforce housing committee had its first meeting Oct. 10 at the Marathon firehouse. Plan ning Director George Garrett said a report on how to tackle the lack of affordable housing in Marathon should be presented to the council by December. A Key Largo dog owners training and quick thinking saved his furry friends life earlier this month and raised awareness of a danger lurking out there for other South Florida pets. Andrew Burtschin, 29, had just returned home from boating around 8:45 p.m. Oct. 1. Before docking at his mile marker 106 home, he pulled up to his neighbors yard to chat. He looked to his yard and noticed his dogs Shadow and Skunk chewing on something but he continued his conversation with his neighbor. Shadow then went to the edge of the dock to sit down, where she stayed for about five minutes, breathing heavy all the while. While still talking to his neighbor, Burtschin saw Shadows body go into contortions and she fell into the canal. Burtschin drove his boat to his dock to get Shadow out of the canal. He estimates Shadow was floating face-down in the water for about two minutes. Once Burtschin pulled Shadow out of the water, he thought she was dead. But he did not want to give up. Burtschin is trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and figured what works on people should work on other mammals. He began chest compressions and what he now jokingly calls mouth to snout resuscitation. It worked. Shadow began spitting up a lot of foam and her legs stiffened, but she was breathing again.Burtschin called Dr. Geoff Bailey, who owns the Animal Care Clinic at mile marker 100.6. Bailey met Burtschin at the clinic and administered a steroid to Shadow, which seemed to get the animal out of her shock.The culprit of Shadows health crisis was a bufo toad, a nonnative animal that secretes a toxin out of its parotoid glands in the back of its head that can be deadly to animals that try to eat the amphibian. It turns out Shadow and Skunk found a bufo and tore it apart. Skunk was fine, and Burtschin said the dog continues to kill bufos. Bailey said dog and cat owners should be on the lookout for bufo toads. If your dog is salivating a lot more than usual, there is a chance he or she ate a bufo. Bailey said that if you suspect your dog consumed one, rinse its mouth out thoroughly with hose water. Just flush, flush, flush to get all those toxins out, Bailey said. Burtschin has another dog, Rowdy, a 175-pound Rottweiler, who wont go near bufo toads. But Shadows experience didnt seem to make too much of an impact on her. Shes gotten into several of them since then, Burtschin said. She hasnt learned her lesson.

The 65-gallon bins on wheels replace 18-gallon bins and are part of the ongoing state effort to get more Florida residents to recycle. Marathon Garbage owner Greg Konrath said residents who want to continue using the smaller bins back can call his company at 743-5165 and put in a request. Workers will swap the bigger bin out for smaller ones during their next run. Konrath doesnt anticipate many people doing that. This should increase the amount of recycling in the county, Konrath said. Some people who didnt recycle before said the new bins are great. The larger bins are for recycling plastic bottles numbered one through seven, aluminum cans, foil, and green, brown and clear glass bottles and jars. Juice and soup cartons that are emptied and rinsed can be also recycled. Paperboard boxes, office paper, newspaper, magazines, catalogs, phone books, paperback books, junk mail and cereal boxes are also acceptable. Nonrecyclable items include paper plates, plastic bags, aerosol cans, window glass, toys, tires, hoses, dishes, Styrofoam and ceramics. As part of the contract agreement, Marathon Garbage had to buy the new bins. Konrath said they cost about $50 each and about $28,000 total, which amounts to 560 new bins. The state government aims to have a 75 percent recycle rate in every county by 2020. Monroe County has a 55 percent recycling, rate according to Rosa Washington, a county solidwaste administrator. Washington said increasing the recycling rate in Monroe County will likely be more difficult than other parts of the state due to the Keys unique landscape. The tourist situation we have here is something a lot of places dont have of they do; its in more concentrated areas, Washington said. Lower Keys residents, served by Waste Management, also have the new bigger bins.Small bins are replaced by larger onesBy WILLIAM AXFORDwaxford@keynoter.comMARATHON Keynoter photo by LARRY KAHNThese are two of the new 65-gallon recycling bins.

Wilma in October 2005, which flooded the entire Keys, was obviously the worst. But no matter when it happens, the hurt from a hurricane is strong, as seen here in Key West following the 1919 hurricane strike.CELEBRATING OUR PAST ELECTION 2014: MARATHONOur choices: Kelly, Zieg, BullELECTION 2014: COUNTY COMMISSIONMonroe County voters choose one county commissioner in this years election (David Rice, in District 4, was automatically re-elected to a fouryear term when no one filed to run against him). George Neugent, a Republican from Marathon, is looking for a fifth term in District 2, which runs from Boca Chica Key to the north side of U.S. 1 from the Seven Mile Bridge to 63rd Court in Marathon. Hoping to unseat him is Eleanor McAdams, a Democrat who lives on Little Torch Key who is making her first foray into politics. Neugent says his experience and political relationships hes established in Tallahassee, Washington, D.C., and Atlanta, where federal agencies regional offices are based, are invaluable. He says they are especially important since the Keys especially the unincorporated Lower Keys are still dealing with sewer construction and the associated costs. And Keyswide, these islands are ground zero for what most people concede is sea-level rise since our highest elevation is just 18 feet above sea level (Windley Key). McAdams, a customer-service representative for an insurance firm, says her experience dealing with residents face to face in her businesses gives her the outlook of what regular folks are dealing with. She also is quick to remind voters, correctly, that 16 years ago, Neugent had never held elected office and had a learning curve on county issues, like she admits she would have should she be elected. McAdams agrees with Neugent the Keys face a threat of sea-level rise, citing her observations of the water where she lives. She says increasingly, it is encroaching on the street and recommends building small walls to contain it. We believe shes passionate about the issue, but containing sea water with walls is unrealistic. Neugent sees the larger picture and generally agrees with Commissioner Heather Carruthers view that Monroe County needs to address it by raising the roads as they come due for major repairs, among other things. That would be funded by the capital-fund sales tax. McAdams, who lives in an area undergoing a $160 million-plus sewer construction, says the use of grinder pumps in that sewer system is too much. Grinder pumps are electrically powered pumps on each individual property that send sewage to a central system. Theyre for properties where traditional gravity systems, connected to the overall system, arent feasible. Neugent says system designers are the experts and, to the chagrin of many Lower Keys property owners, has taken the stance that designers have reformulated their plans enough to include fewer grinder pumps and more changes cost more money. Neugent is a top official in the states efforts to get BP oil-spill settlement money sent to the Keys and, despite McAdams working for an insurance company, has a better handle on trying to get the state and federal governments to rein in property insurance costs here. We applaud McAdams for making this a race, but we endorse Neugent in the Nov. 4 election for District 2 county commissioner.Voters in Marathon will replace at least two City Council members when the polls open Nov. 4. But they arent voting for just two council persons. Three seats are up in the nonpartisan at-large election, with the three candidates who receive the most votes of the five winning out. Mayor Dick Ramsay is term-limited out and Councilman John Bartus, serving an interim role since Ginger Snead resigned in February, isnt running. Incumbent Councilman Chris Bull is running for another two-year term. Also in the mix are former Mayor Mike Cinque, coowner of a restaurant; Realtor Trish Hintze; electrical contractor Bill Kelly; and retired doctor Dan Zieg. Besides Bull and Cinque, the ones with experience making governmental decisions are Kelly, a member of the Code Compliance Board; and Zieg, whos on the Planning Commission. All agree the No. 1 problem facing Marathon is affordable housing for workers, especially with two new hotels, which need staff, opening in the coming months; and the redevelopment or expansion of others in the works. How to solve that problem is something no one has a handle on. Cinque says the housing issue is a larger one: Paying workers more and instituting a local livingwage law. But with Monroe County traditionally having among the lowest unemployment rates of all 67 Florida counties, theres little incentive for business owners to pay more unless theyre willing to do so to maintain quality staff. Hintze, whose income relies on home sales, focuses on making home ownership easier to obtain rather than looking at renters, who are the most affected by lack of affordable housing. Bull contends the city had opportunities in the past to buy housing when the market crashed and use it for affordable housing under income guidelines. Whether that would be the city acting as a housing authority or partnering with private developers isnt clear. Zieg and Kelly say part of the problem, especially when the federal government cracked down on illegal downstairs enclosures, is that lots of houses are used as vacation rentals, taking them off the market for Middle Keys residents. Both want more enforcement of the rental laws to weed out bad property managers. Zieg walks the walk in housing. Last week, in a Planning Commission meeting where redevelopment of the former Longhorn Lodge was up for approval, hes the one who asked what affordable housing will be put on the property as part of the redevelopment. The board kicked the approval to the City Council, which asked the same question but was basically told none. Kellys daily life includes pulling permits for electrical work. He says that while doing so has been much easier since former City Manager Roger Hernstadt resigned in January to take a job in Marco Island, it can be even more streamlined. The other candidates agree that City Hall can be more user-friendly. They also say they favor controlled development or redevelopment, though none could define what that really is. And, Zieg, Bull and Kelly emphasize they believe some people who want something from the city get favorable treatment from their government friends rather than all residents having a level playing field. Marathon is now 15 years in as a city and reaching maturity. The time is now for leadership that can take this city from beyond just being an angry child of Monroe County government, which was the case for incorporation. We believe Kelly, an everyman who isnt beholden to anyone, is perfect for the job. Zieg would add a fresh voice and a considerable broad business perspective hes also redeveloped a golf course to a council that would benefit from that. And Bull has the experience to help lead them. For the Marathon City Council, we endorse Bill Kelly, Dan Zieg and Chris Bull.

Neugent deserves another termELECTION 2014: MOSQUITO CONTROLThe Florida Keys Mosquito Control Boards mission is simple: Kill bugs while trying to prevent them from hatching. While many people dont believe this five-member board should be an elected body but rather could be rolled into Monroe County Public Works, it is indeed an elected panel, and voters Keyswide choose two commissioners this fall. Running in District 2 are incumbent Republican Phil Goodman, Independent Upper Sugarloaf Key resident Linda Schuh and Democrat Roger Cousineau. Gov. Rick Scott appointed Goodman, from Cudjoe Key, in 2011 to replace Dick Rudell, who died shortly after his re-election in 2010. Schuh is a schooner captain who has worked in variety of jobs. Cousineau lives on Little Torch Key and is a real estate agent, among other things. Goodman, a former chemical-firm executive, brings a business background to the board and has been among the commissioners who reined in district expenses the past three-plus years. Despite denying it, he is also a political animal; his wife Debby chairs the Monroe County Republican Party and he has hosted Scott at a meet-and-greet at his house. Goodman favors more use of technology to lower expenses even at the expense of the possible loss of district jobs. His opponents say his knowledge of chemicals in the textile industry dont translate to the chemicals used to kill mosquitoes. Cousineau says technology should be embraced slowly and that spending is too low to get the job done. He is fiercely protective of district jobs, saying technology such as drones to find standing pools of water where mosquitoes breed shouldnt replace even one job. Schuhs main issue is the use of chemicals at all, saying theyre a danger to residents, butterflies and critters overall. While she acknowledges the need for chemicals, be it larvicide to kill hatchlings or adulticide for spraying, she says mosquito control can be far more effective if property owners simply took care of their land by being aware of standing water and emptying it when seen. Running for the District 5 seat being vacated by judicial candidate Jack Bridges are veterinarian Geoff Bailey, a Democrat, and Republican certified public accountant Tom McDonald. McDonald served on the board for one four-year term, from 1994 to 1998. McDonald said its crucial for the board to have someone with a finance background on the board, and says he helped create a reserve fund when on the board when reserves were virtually nil. He also, unlike his opponent, isnt fond of the idea of televising board meetings (Mosquito Control is the only countywide board not to televise its meetings), saying it would lead to grandstanding for the camera. He favors the use of drones and says Mosquito Control should focus on innovation, less taxation. Bailey says cutting the budget merely to cut is foolish, and that whatever it costs to kill mosquitoes should be spent, as long as its reasonable. He favors employing genetically modified mosquitoes to reduce the number of dengue-carrying mosquitoes in Old Town Key West (that area had outbreaks of dengue in 2008 and 2009). Bailey, like Goodman, has a background in chemicals due to his medical training, treating pets for ticks, fleas and the like. He favors the use of drones to weed out mosquito breeding grounds We believe Goodman, using his business sense, has done a good job during his tenure on the board, helping to unify what used to be a broken board separated by politics. He looks at the bottom line when it comes to spending but also understands that killing bugs does not come cheaply (and in the scheme of things, Mosquito Controls tax rate is minimal). We believe McDonald would do a good job if returned to the board but his main focus is keeping the budget in check and not so much looking at new technologies. And with Commissioner Jill Cranney-Gage, assistant finance director at the Sheriffs Office and former senior accountant for the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority, the board already has a finance expert. For the District 2 Mosquito Control Board seat, we endorse Phil Goodman. In District 5, we endorse Geoff Bailey.For bug board: Bailey and GoodmanMarathon is now 15 years in as a city and reaching maturity.

My mother was born in London, so I have that English flavor. Thats the whole thing about Nowhere were not from anywhere specific. Were just a little bit of everything.He says the food will reflect that. On the menu is a Cuban Reuben, a sandwich of Cuban pulled pork, Swiss cheese, and sauerkraut with Thousand Island dressing on rye bread. The Sloppy Jose will have picadillo, a Cuban dish consisting of ground beef, peppers, onions and tomatoes, on a slider role with a piece of sweet plantain. The Around the World Chicken Sandwich is teriyaki chicken, Danish ham and Swiss cheese on a roll.Chicken wings are also planned and Rodriguez and his uncle David are looking for other dishes to fuse together.Im trying to start a place where the locals can find the food they want, David said. There needs to be a place where locals can go and have a reasonably priced steak.The bar will have live entertainment and art will adorn the walls. Rodriguez plans to do some of the artwork himself and feature works from other artists Keyswide. Paintings, sculptures and other works will be for sale.Family will be a big focus for Nowhere, with Rodriguezs dad serving as head chef. His wife, stepsister, brother-in-law and uncle will also be part of the staff.They say familys hard but we wanted to live in the same town instead of seeing each other on special holidays, said Rodriguez, who grew up in Miami. Then dishes will feature the flavors weve come up with.Alcohol will be served. Like the menu, the beer and liquor list is still being finalized.Were not going to be fine dinning but were not going to be a dive, either, David said. Were going to be somewhere in the middle. People always told me I was going to go nowhere; now Im here.Itll feature blended food, menu developingBy WILLIAM AXFORDwaxford@keynoter.comMARTHON New eatery goes NowhereKeynoter photo by WILLIAM AXFORDRichard Rodriguez and Megan Philbrick are putting a slight twist on classic dishes when the Nowhere Bar & Grill opens for the season.

The scores in a match that lasted two grueling hours were 25-13, 22-25, 22-25, 25-23, 15-12.With Sarah Pike scoring six points, the Conchs won the first game easily, elating mascot Conchy Conch, who amused players from both teams and even got in the Key West huddle during a time-out.But Calusa, which had a liberal dose of eightand ninth-graders, battled back in game two, urged on by their fans, who outnumbered Key West rooters. The Calusa baseball players sat in the top row of the bleachers and set up a commotion of footstomping that rattled the gym.They came down on their own, said Calusa principal Tim Fowler, who had driven the team down from Miamiin a bus. I told them, You support us and well support you. After the Colts got their 25th point in the second game on a spike by Rosa Mateo, they went out and won the third game. Trailing 22-20, they shocked the Conchs with five consecutive points, the last two on service aces by diminutive Victoria Alexander, Fowlers stepdaughter.Game four was a backand-forth struggle that featured long rallies that had Calusas animated first-year coach, Yesinia Tosado, a former University of Puerto Rico basketball player, twisting and turning on every point. It was 22-22 with Calusa three points from winning the game and the match. Pike served an ace, but then she made a serve error and it was 23-23. A net violation gave the Conchs a 24-23 lead and then Samantha Golden hit a shot that won the game and set up a fifth to 15. By this time, Conchy Conch was gone.After Calusa opened the deciding game with four consecutive points, Key West coach Kim Butler called time.The Colts suddenly became error-prone but still maintained an 8-4 lead untilVball team comes back to beat CalusaBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST VOLLEYBALL Dolphins sweep the HurricanesThe Lady Fins got revenge on the volleyball team of Coral Shores High Thursday, sweeping the match in a hard-fought contest at Marathon High School Thursday.Despite the sweep, the Fins started each game battling fiveand six-point deficits.

Fishing school approachesFemale anglers should mark their calendars for Nov. 14 through 16 for the Florida Keys Ladies, Lets Go Fishing! girls getaway in Islamorada. The weekend university teaches students to become anglers or polish existing skills. Over the past two decades, more than 8,000 women seeking knowledge about sportfishing and responsible angling have earned confidence on the water as they applied learned fishing skills in offshore, bottom, inshore and fly fishing. Those attending learn techniques from some of the globes most prominent fishing captains who are based in the Florida Keys. The seminar kicks off Nov. 14 with a meet-andgreet networking social from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Taverniers Elks Lodge at mile marker 92 bayside. Nov. 15s activities begin at 8:30 a.m. with classroom presentations by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser vation Commission on fishing basics, conservation, release techniques and more. After lunch, hands-on activities include knot tying, bait rigging, spin and net casting, boat and trailer handling, stand-up fish fighting techniques, gaffing and removing hooks. Women also learn to fillet their catch. That Sunday morning, participants can opt for an inshore or offshore fishing adventure out of the Whale Harbor Marina, mile marker 83.5. Anglers can fish from a party (drift) boat, offshore sportfishing vessel or inshore flats boat, or choose a guided kayak fishing trip. The fee, $135 per person, includes a classroom book and instruction, use of equipment, welcome reception, lunch, goody bags, party and more. Fishing also can be arranged on bonus days Friday and Monday for an additional fee. For event information, go to www.ladiesletsgo fishing.com or call Betty Bauman at (954) 475-9068.Its goal is teaching women the ins and outsISLAMORADAWere still talking about it, it was definitely an incredible match. It was a total team effort from the starters to the bench.Neither team backed down in each game, diving at every corner of the court and attacking the ball ferociously.Coral Shores top hitter, Melissa Helphrey, savaged the ball relentlessly into Marathon territory, keeping back hitters Jackie Clairmont, Chavely Aldama and Baelee Pettry in constant motion. But Marathons tenacious defense and Johnisha Qualls domination on the front line leveled it out.Coral Shores beat us in the preseason game and beat us three games to one earlier this season, Freeman said. Theres a rivalry between all the Keys teams. We all like to beat each other, its no secret.Dolphin Jordan Roney scored nine aces and had 15 assists and five kills. Qualls had five kills and three blocks. Sydney Valdes had six kills and eight assists. Fans of both teams packed the gym, filling it with cheers and friendly jabs. The student section was alive with feet pounding and chants of Lets go, Marathon! while Canes fans did some screaming of their own. Marathon students flooded the court when the Fins secured their last winning point. The Fins ended the regular season 16-4 and will travel to the mainland Tuesday to play Westminster Christian in the District tournament at 5:30 p.m. Outside of Coral Shores, Westminster and defending state champion Palmer Trinity have been the toughest opponents for the Fins this season. For Freeman, the Fins 3-2 loss to Archimedean on Sept. 25 was the most regrettable loss of the season. The one loss Im upset about was against Archimedean, but it made our girls stronger, Freeman said, noting that his team became more focused during practices. It made our girls stronger. It helped out more than anything else.Roney, Qualls, Valdes lead teamFrom Volleyball, 1B KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 2B Saturday, October 18, 2014 Public Meetings Scheduled by and with the City of Marathon for October 2014Please note that more than one Marathon City Council/Board/Committee member may participate in the meetings listed.City Council Acting City Manager Dick Ramsay, Mayor Mike Puto Chris Bull, Vice Mayor City Attorneys John Bartus, Councilmember Gray-Robinson Richard Keating, Councilmember Mark Senmartin, Councilmember CITY OF MARATHONSUBJECT: DATE: TIME: LOCATION: CIAB Meeting 10/20/144:00pmMarathon Fire Station, 8900 Overseas Hwy.

A gourd weighing 2,058 pounds took first prize and set a new tournament record Monday at an annual pumpkin-weighing contest in Northern California. John Hawkley, 56, won this years Safeway World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-off in Half Moon Bay, south of San Francisco. Hawkley squashed his competition, beating the runner-up by more than 300 pounds, Tim Beeman, a spokesman for the weigh-off said. His pumpkin set a new U.S. record for biggest pumpkin, organizers said. Hawkley, a production manager for a local newspaper, credited his success at least in part to warm weather. He ended up with a total of six pumpkins on a 4,500square-foot patch of land in his front yard in Californias Napa Valley, which is famous for its wine grapes. One of the other pumpkins also weighed more than 2,000 pounds. My wife said this is as much pumpkin patch area as Im going to get, he said. Hawkley said he will use the more-than $13,000 in prize money to make repairs on his home, which was damaged during a strong earthquake in the Napa area in August. All 30 pumpkins weighed at this years tournament were from California, according to Beeman. The contest normally gets growers from Oregon and Washington as well. Last years winner was also from the Napa Valley and came in at 1,985 pounds.

While perusing the aisle of costumes, she says, The only two choices for women: Witch and sexy kitten.If youre female and have ever looked for a costume in stores or online, Im sure you can relate. Most female costumes look like something more appropriate for the bedroom than a party where others, including children, may see you. This year, instead of being witch-like or a sex kitten, opt for something a little more creative and unique.Fantasy FestThe 2014 Fantasy Fest in Key West is themed Animeted Dreams & Adventures, inspired by traditional Japanese anime and virtually all forms of creative animation. Those attending the various events through Oct. 24 will portray characters from classic anime, comic books and animated blockbuster hits.Anime is known for exaggerated features such as big eyes and oddly colored hair, and typical characters usually have some sort of supernatural power. This provides the perfect opportunity for you to make up your own superhero.If it were me, Id go as The Fashionator. Id wear long fake eyelashes and have a magic wand that matched my red lips. My superpower would enable me to walk up to anyone looking less than fabulous and provide them with perhaps Italian leather shoes instead of socks with sandals or Crocs. I loathe those.Get inspiredPinterest is a great site for finding inspiration and DIY advice for your Halloween costume. Most pictures provide tutorials and videos on how to make the costume of your choice. A few of my favorites:The Jellyfish. Wear all white and use a clear umbrella as a prop by taping white streamers down the sides and glow sticks under the umbrella. So cute, easy and with very little investment.The loofah. You can resemble your favorite shower mate by buying 30 yards of tulle that you can cut and pin to a pair of shorts and shirt. Go for a bright color like fuchsia or purple and make sure to buy a small rope as the loofah handle.Leopard. Animal print is in right now so you might as well take advantage of it and be a leopard for Halloween. Make use of every piece of leopard print you own and buy a pair of ears. You can draw on whiskers and a black little nose with eyeliner; at least its more creative than sexy kitty.Shop LocalOur local shops have lots of great items that you can use for creating your Halloween costume.

Apple unveils new productsApple unveiled a thinner iPad Thursday with a faster processor and a better camera as it tries to drive excitement for tablets amid slowing demand. The company also released an update to its Mac operating system and introduced a high-resolution iMac model that might appeal to heavy watchers of television over the Internet.The new iPad Air 2, at a quarter of an inch thin, adds many of the features previously available on iPhones. That includes the ability to take burst shots and slowmotion video, and unlock the device with a fingerprint ID sensor instead of a pass code. Meanwhile, Apple made its new Mac operating system, Yosemite, available as a free download starting Thursday. The new 27-inch iMac, which Apple is dubbing the Retina 5K model, went on sale Thursday, as well.The company also said Apple Pay, its new system for using iPhones to make credit and debit card payments at retail stores, will launch on Monday. Much of the emphasis at Thursdays product-launch event centered on how Apples devices work well together because the company makes both its hardware and software. Theyre designed to be incredible products individually but theyre also designed to work together seamlessly, CEO Tim Cook said. This is our vision of personal technology, and we are just getting started. Its been a year since Apple came out with a lighter, thinner full-size model called the iPad Air. Apple refreshed that with a device that is skinnier by 18 percent at 6.1 millimeters. The rear camera is boosted to 8 megapixels, matching whats found in iPhones. Previous iPads had a 5 megapixel camera. The iPad Air 2 will start at $499. Apple also updated its iPad Mini device, with a starting price of $399. The new devices will begin shipping next week. Thursdays event came as sales of Apples iPads have dropped. Through the first half of this year, Apple had shipped 29.6 million iPads, a 13 percent drop from the same time last year. Apple plans to issue results for the latest quarter on Monday. Apple has been facing competition from cheaper tablets running Googles Android operating system.

Saturday, October 18, 2014 5B Keynoter KeysInfoNet.comAt the movies, it seems that everyones entitled to an origin story, even Dracula so here we are with Dracula Untold, which takes us back to the 15th Century to remind us that being a vampire is no easy gig. Long before Bram Stoker had eyes to twinkle, were told, Vlad the Impaler (Luke Evans, nicely coifed) was making a deal with a truly nasty demon (Charles Dance, made up to look like Voldemorts less well-preserved cousin) to give him the strength to crush his enemies. The good news: Consider them crushed. The bad news: Well, lets just say that impressively throbbing vein on Vlads lovely wife Mirena (Sarah Gadon) the vein that gets its very own dramatically lit close-up, and probably its own agent -is looking awfully tasty. Dracula Untold, directed by Gary Shore (in an unimpressive feature debut), isnt really a horror film; its more of an action movie with a little bloodsucking thrown in on the side. Unfortunately, it falls into that far-too-large category of studio offerings that arent good enough to be noteworthy or terrible enough to be truly entertaining. Its CGI effects mostly murky blue mountains, blurry thousands of troops and Vlad occasionally being transformed into a flock of bats -look fairly low-rent; its cast is handsome but uninspired. Only Dance, swishing around his characters creepily long tongue and hissing threats like, Ill rip you open from your belly to your brain and feed you your intestines, seems to be having any fun. The swords zing; the movie doesnt.
