Story, 1BKeynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYUP AND INWeak crab harvest perplexesAdismal stone-crab season that may prove a calamity for the Florida Keys commercial fishing fleet surprised even crab researchers. There are normal dips in the fishery, Ryan Gandy, a Ph.D crustacean researcher with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, said Friday.We had indications this might not be a stellar year, he said. It looked like nothing to be concerned about. Then once the fishing started, the [crab] population wasnt there.The harvest of stone-crab claws the season runs from Oct. 15 to May 15 ranks second only to lobster in financial importance to Monroe Countys commercial fishing industry.Typically, Monroe and Collier counties account for more than half the states harvest of crab claws, despite the fact that stone crabs can be found off much of Floridas coast. About a third of the states 1,200 licensed trap fishers are based in the Keys.Last season, the Keys produced nearly 1.1 million pounds of claws about 41 percent of the 2.67 million pounds caught statewide. This season has turned bleak, Keys Fisheries General Manager Gary Graves said Tuesday. The Marathon fish house been forced to lay off staff on its production side and raise dockside prices to keep fishing crews from pulling their traps out of the water early. Still, harvests of legal-size claws coming into the docks are a small fraction of what they should be, Graves said.Keys are a prime source for claws but this year, catch is way downCOMMERCIAL FISHINGBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com Cop suspended in gun theftAveteran Monroe County Sheriffs Office sergeant lost his spot on the agencys special-response unit after losing weapons and gear from his patrol car. Sgt. Ken Fricke will be suspended for seven working days (84 hours) without pay and be removed from the Special Weapons and Tactics roster, Chief Lou Caputo of the agencys Law Enforcement Bureau concluded in a Dec. 13 report. The September burglary was the second time in three years that weapons were stolen from Frickes patrol car while parked outside his Big Pine Key home.All the weapons taken in September a .40-caliber Glock handgun, a .45-caliber Glock and a Colt M4 with a scope soon were recovered after calls were received by the Crime Stoppers hotline. ABig Pine Key man and a 17-year-old were arrested on counts of grand theft and dealing in stolen property, which included a bullet-resistant vest, helmet and ammunition.Fricke, who joined the Sheriffs Office in 2005, declined to comment publicly on the disciplinary action, agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin said.After Frickes patrol car was burglarized in August 2009, the Sheriffs Office adopted a policy in 2010 that prohibits deputies from leaving guns or other equipment in their cars. Two handguns stolen from Frickes car in 2009 were never recovered. A missing shotgun later was found by a plumber working under a porch at the Eastwind Apartments in Marathon. No arrests were made in the 2009 theft. After the September burglary, Fricke told investigators that his 2007 Lincoln patrol car was securely locked. An investigator and locksmith said they found no indication the locks or doors were opened by force. Lt. Bruce Winegarden initially recommended a 14day suspension for Fricke, along with losing his SWAT post. Caputo trimmed the suspension time. After six months, Fricke will become eligible for the SWATteam again but must try out, Caputo wrote in his decision.LAW ENFORCEMENTBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org Photo by DANA CHILDThe Stanley Switlik Elementary School Student Council sponsored a canned food drive to benefit Keys Area Interdenominational Resources in Marathon,and this is the bounty.Seated are Katia Nikiforova,Mary Ryder, Vanessa Martinez and teacher-sponsor Deb Smith while other Student Council members stand in the back.FOOD DRIVE For FIRM study, devils in detailsNow that the governing board of Citizens Property Insurance Corp. has agreed to fund a $485,000 Florida Keys study of windstorm rates, the mechanics of getting that study done begin.The whole process should take about 10 months, said Monroe County Commissioner Heather Carruthers, a founding member of Fair Insurance Rates for Monroe, which will oversee the study. We hope to know by next November what our risk is.On Dec. 14, Citizensgoverning board agreed to pay for the study after years of FIRM lobbying for lower Keys windstorm rates.

of last resort than they request in claims from storm damage.Citizens holds around 25,000 windstorm policies in the Keys. The average policy holder pays around $3,000 annually, FIRM says. Firm says that each year, Monroe property owners pay more than $79 million in Citizens premiums, far more than they should considering the windstorm risk. Between 2003 and 2011, the group says, the Keys generated a gross profit premiums minus claims for Citizens of $504 million. FIRM hopes the study will not only get those premiums down but even result in the Keys being removed from Citizens altogether, likely by creating an independent Florida Keys insurance pool. The first step, Carruthers said, is creating requests for qualifications for risk companies to perform the study, which will entail inspecting homes and other buildings, and studying the Keyshistory of building codes. The RFQs will be for vulnerability analysis, the storm surge and then natural catastrophe, Carruthers said. We hope to have it done by the end of January, so [FIRM Executive Director] Annalese [Mannix] will do the heavy lifting here in terms of writing the RFQ. We will probably send it to some of the big risk [modeling] firms, Carruthers said. Were also going to see if we can publish it on Demandstar.com, a website used for government contract bidding. We expect well give people three to four weeks to respond, she said. Hopefully well be able to make a decision by March. We think once we select an initial vendor, we can get going in two weeks. In some cases, Carruthers said, well be able to identify the specific homes to be in the model. When we do the profile, well actually send engineers to the houses, with the homeownerspermission, to confirm everything that exists on paper conforms to reality. We need to determine what the profile needs to look at. For example, look at a certain number of homes from each decade to correspond to the changes in the building code. It will probably be a couple of hundred homes that will be physically inspected. Well also look at some of the institutional buildings [such as hospitals and schools] because they tend to be sturdier. It will be interesting, though, because even some of our old homes have been rebuilt to tougher building codes. Once the study is done, Carruthers said, Then we go back to Citizens and say, You guys were right [about Keys windstorm rates], which I doubt; or we say, You were wrong. At that point, Carruthers said, if the Citizens board decides the study shows that Keys property owners pay unfairly higher rates than property owners in the rest of the state, the board can decide to lower Monroe County rates or let the island chain leave the company altogether which goes along with Citizensgoal of depopulating its base, anyway. If that happens, FIRM would start work on either creating a Keys insurance pool or looking for private firms to take on Monroe properties. If it doesnt, the next step is unclear.Study to include inspectionsFrom Insurance,1A KeysNet.com Keynoter 2A Saturday,December 22,2012 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDA Y HIGH L O W SAT.6556 SUN.7265 MON.7668 TUES.7971 Forecast: Expect mostly sunny skies.

The twins are 2012 graduates of Coral Shores High School. Rob is currently stationed in Mayport, FL (Jacksonville) aboard the USCG Cutter Hammer. John is currently stationed in Ft. Myers Beach, FL. John LietaertRobert Lietaert Congratulations Rob And John As part of my transition, I want to be sure the backlog is handled and that we have an attorney that is dedicated to DUI prosecution, thats an expert in DUI litigation, she said.The mission of the coalition, comprising groups including the Guidance Care Center, Monroe County Health Department and local law enforcement, is to reduce substance abuse and consequences among Monroe County youth and adults. For the DUI and related efforts, it and the Guidance Care Center received a $191,000 grant administered by the South Florida Behavioral Health Network through the state Department of Children and Families. Mr. Trovato will work specifically on the backlog of 400 DUI cases and to move forward with new and enhanced DUI cases that focus on repeat offenses, property damage and higher breath alcohol, the coalition said in a prepared statement. Coalition Executive Director Frank Sauer, a retired Key West police officer, said the coalition and Guidance Care Center are each pitching in $25,000 over 10 months for Trovatos salary, while the State Attorneys Office is covering health benefits. This grant is renewable by year as long as we keep up with deliverables and renegotiate the grant. But thats going to have to wait until the next budget cycle, he said. He also said Trovatos hire is just one aspect of the total grant. The rest of the grant is going toward changing the cultural attitude of accepting underage drinking, Sauer said. In the 18 to 20 age group, its been increasing. There has also been funding for enhanced DUI patrols in Key West and by the Monroe County Sheriffs [Office], and compliance checks.Education is part of effortFrom DUIs,1A TROVATO Sheriff-elect names new No. 2Experience that Bill Cameron, Monroe Countys next undersheriff, brings to the job could not be matched locally, says Sheriff-elect Rick Ramsay. Cameron, 51, will step down as Charlotte County sheriff when his term expires in January to move to the Florida Keys. His qualifications and experience surpassed everybody else, said Ramsay, the current undersheriff. In all aspects of the job, Bill has been there and done it. Ramsay announced Camerons hiring as second in command of the Sheriffs Office on Wednesday. Ramsay takes office on Jan. 8, taking over from the retiring Bob Peryam.Cameron has served as Charlotte County sheriff twice first when named by then-Gov. Jeb Bush in 2003 to fill out the final year of a term. He stayed on as Charlotte County undersheriff, then won election in 2008.Cameron started a campaign for re-election in Charlotte County, near Fort Myers, this year but announced in April that he was withdrawing from the race because of a family members health problems. Cameron was out of his office at press time and could not be reached for comment. There were reasons Bill did not want to commit to another [four-year] term in Charlotte, Ramsay said. Also, the Camerons have property here and its been a dream for them to become part of the Keys community. Ramsay, a Marathon resident since childhood, counts several longtime friends among top commanders at the Sheriffs Office. We have great people inside our office and many of them could have done a wonderful job as undersheriff, Ramsay said. That makes this harder, but it wasnt about picking a friend. Its the right decision for the Sheriffs Office, he said. I hope people can see that.After graduating from Fort Myers High School and Edison College, Cameron worked for the Lee County Sheriffs Office for 17 years, rising to the rank of captain. He then moved to the Charlotte County agency to continue his 30-year career in law-enforcement.Cameron was sheriff in August 2004 when Hurricane Charley made landfall as a strong Category 4 storm in Charlotte County.He was sheriff before, during and after Charley, Ramsay said. Ive been through a lot of hurricanes here but nothing like Charley.As the leader of an agency with a $51 million budget to serve a county of 150,000 residents, Cameron has vast experience in budgeting and government relations, Ramsay said.This should work out well for the Camerons and for Monroe County, Ramsay said.

Poor harvests in the Keys which account for nearly half the state take of stonecrab claws are reflected along the Gulf of Mexico coast, Gandy said.Its not specific to the Keys, he said. Were seeing it throughout the fishery.The state Fish and Wildlife Research Institute keeps from 80 to 100 stone-crab traps, split among four trap lines, in Keys waters to regularly survey the population.Our traps are showing about the same thing the fishermen are seeing, Gandy said. It looked pretty good when the season started but then dropped. The number of juvenile stone crabs seems to be relatively constant, Gandy noted.We looked at whether this is an issue of the babies not coming in, he said. As far as we can see, recruitment is about where it should be. There are lot of questions about the health of the Gulf, Gandy said. If those were going to cause a problem, wed see it first in the babies that are most vulnerable. But were not seeing that.Causes for the population decline remain uncertain. The Gulf has seen two straight warm winters, which may slow crab movement. Toxic red-tide blooms have been seen off Southwest Florida. North of Sarasota, fishermen say theyre seeing a lot of octopus, which tend to cause problems for crabs in traps or out walking around, Gandy said. After a relatively healthy harvest in the Keys and South Florida last year, Gandy said researchers anticipated a slight decline this year. The dips themselves make sense, he said. Its the magnitude thats a concern. It will take some time to see if things change. Acold front moving into the state this weekend may help improve the catch, Gandy said.Other areas affected, tooFrom Crabs,1ATraumaStar blade strikes treeThe countys helicopter air ambulance was grounded for two days late last month after it struck a tree with its tail rotor blades while taking off from a helipad at Mariners Hospital in Tavernier.The 1981 Sikorsky S-76A chopper, known as TraumaStar, struck the tree on Nov. 28, said Kathleen Bergen, a spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration.TraumaStar is flown and maintained by the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, but its crew of paramedics and flight nurses are members of the county Fire-Rescue Department. Deputy Becky Herrin, a Sheriffs Office spokeswoman, said the agency is looking into the incident to determine if discipline of any sort is called for.The tree, which had grown too close to the landing pad, was removed to avoid such an incident happening in the future, Herrin said in an e-mail. Four people were aboard TraumaStar when the accident occurred, Bergen said. Herrin described the damage done to the aircraft as very minor and said it was discovered when TraumaStar returned to its hangar at Florida Keys Marathon Airport. She said the pilot did not know he hit anything. The pilot didnt even realize it at the time and completed the mission at hand, Herrin said. Sheila Koncsewski, Mariners spokeswoman, said the entire tree has been removed since the accident. The helicopters blades were removed to be inspected. Herrin said TraumaStar is using loaner/replacement blades in the meantime. According to a Dec. 10 memo written by Brooks Bateman, the Sheriffs Office aviation director, which was obtained by The Reporter, the accident resulted in changes in landing and take-off procedures from Mariners. From now on, members of the Fire Department must be on the ground at the hospital to direct arrivals and departures. Fire-Rescue crews will also have to inspect the helipad for any debris or obstacles before the chopper can land, the memo states.New protocol put in place for chopperBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comTAVERNIER The complete Florida Keys news and information source.

Outgoing Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board Commissioner Joan LordPapy didnt pull any punches as her 20-year tenure on the board came to a close at the boards Dec. 14 meeting. Lord-Papy, who will be succeeded by Jill CranneyGage on Jan. 23, lashed out at fellow Commissioner Phil Goodman over his motion to have district employees contribute $50 monthly toward health insurance. Theyre covered 100 percent by the district now. Lord-Papy said Goodman doesnt understand where the employees are coming from because he was appointed by Gov. Rick Scott in 2011 and never ran a campaign. He took office after then-Commissioner Dick Rudell died shortly after the 2010 election. Mr. Goodman has done nothing but cut, cut, cut since hes been put on the board. The employees see hes here to destroy everything weve established. Im sorry you take it that way, but thats the way I feel, Lord-Papy said. She went on to accuse Goodman of micromanaging Director Michael Doyle and other staff members, comments spurred by employee Patty Mousseaus claim of low morale among district employees. You spend more time in Mosquito Control offices than most commissioners have done in the past 20 years. Ive never done that. Were not there to control our director or run the everyday operation, Lord-Papy said. Goodman never responded directly, only insisting that the district should reflect the private sector when it comes to benefits. I think $50 is fair. No matter how we got here, our job is we represent the people of Monroe County. We want to be fair to the employees and there has to be a balance, he said. You want to see a morale problem, go to the private sector where theyre laying off 300 people. We have to be reflective of whats going on in the real economy. Goodmans original proposal was to charge current and retired employees, beginning Jan. 1, an additional $50 per month. They pay nothing and $50 per month, respectively. Saying he wanted to come away with something, Goodman amended the proposal to apply only to current employees. He also pushed the start date back to Feb. 1 at the request of Chairman Jack Bridges. Bridges seconded Goodmans motion, but the vote failed 3-2. Commissioner Steve Smith was adamantly opposed to having current employees pay but was amenable to having new hires pay. For the former, he pointed to a deductible that was doubled (from $250 to $500) this year to keep health-care costs down. I would like to look at this at our next budget cycle, he said. Smith also added to Lord-Papys comments. I thought long and hard about whether I wanted to run again on this board, partly because I felt a lot of what [Lord-Papy] just said. All of a sudden its become a board of sweep it away and cut, cut, cut without any regard to our staff, he said. Commissioner Bill Shaw said he would consider a $25 contribution from employees, but not adding onto retiree costs. I see both sides. We did approve a 3 percent merit raise for those that deserve it. But if we give them a raise and make them pay for part of their benefits, theyre not going to receive any raise, he said. Bridges questioned claims about low morale. This board took considerable political heat and funded the [Other PostEmployment Benefits fund], we voted for merit raises and just voted to give everyone an extra day off at Christmas because its the right thing to do. That doesnt mean we can always give the store away, he said. I dont see a lot of people quitting. I do not think that $50 per month is too much pay for someones insurance.No salary cut for bug boardThree of five Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board commissioners wanted no part of a discussion about a supposed 10 percent pay cut they took that in reality never happened. Meeting Dec. 14, four of the commissioners were unaware the cut that discussed during the summers budget hearings wasnt actually approved. Commissioner Bill Shaw said he knew that. Commissioner Joan Lord-Papy even proposed to rescind the non-existent salary reduction in the final meeting of her 20-year career on the board. Commissioners earn 21,438 per year, while the chairman and secretarytreasurer each earn $22,038. That doesnt include fully funded health benefits. Lord-Papy quickly pulled her moot agenda item and Commissioner Phil Goodman motioned to add a last-minute one instituting the pay cut retroactive to Oct. 1, the beginning of the 2012-13 fiscal year. But adding late agenda items requires a four-fifths vote of the board, and the motion received little support. Shaw, whos openly campaigned against salary cuts, refused to consider adding an item just because somebody didnt understand what happened. They werent included in the budget. I dont see any reason to put it on the agenda, he said of the pay cuts. Commissioner Steve Smith, who has not supported pay cuts, pointed out the $10,000 total reduction would be a minimal portion of the annual budget. Goodmans motion failed 3-2, with he and Chairman Jack Bridges voting for the cuts. In a Dec. 14 e-mail to the Keynoter, Bridges said staff advised him they could not reduce my pay without board action. Bridges attempted to retroactively lower his own salary by 10 percent, but the board refused to hear it. Bridges said he would put the retroactive pay cut for all commissioners on the Jan. 23 meeting agenda. I hope that with Commissioner-elect Jill Cranny-Gage replacing Joan Lord-Papy, we will be able to pass the cut weve previously told taxpayers we had already taken. I am flabbergasted that anyone liberal, conservative, friend or foe would object to a commissioners voluntarily reducing his own salary, he said.Issue likely to come back in JanuaryMOSQUITO CONTROL KeysNet.com Keynoter 4A Saturday,December 22,2012 Key Colony Inn will be open on Christmas Day from 1 8 pm!

Lyneda Vilme, 33, poured a can of gasoline all over her body, Deputy Becky Herrin said. Deputy John Gabay had already arrived at the scene and had taken a lighter away from her but she also had matches and used those to light herself. She sustained massive burns from head to toe, Herrin said, but due to medical privacy laws, her official condition wasnt available. Herrin said the womans 8-year-old daughter had called the Sheriffs Office to tell dispatchers her parents were fighting. When Gabay got to their trailer, he found Vilmes husband, Jean Brutus, 32, holding Vilmes hands as she sat in a chair outside.Upon seeing Gabay, Brutus let go of her hands and thats when Vilme, dressed only in underwear grabbed the red gas can and poured the fuel all over herself. The deputy grabbed the gas container and threw it into a corner of the yard, but before he could stop her, she grabbed a lighter, threatening to set herself on fire, Herrin said.She continued, Gabay managed to get the lighter away from her, but then she produced matches and, before he could stop her, lit herself on fire. Deputy Spencer Curry then arrived and he, Gabay and Brutus extinguished the flames. Even more bizarre, After being burned, Vilme continued to be combative with deputies and paramedics, yelling and fighting with them.They called for the TraumaStar medical helicopter to take her to the Ryder Trauma Center in Miami, but she was so combative and violent, she could not be transported by air, Herrin said. So she was taken to Lower Keys Medical Center instead.Massive burns from head to toeBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comSTOCK ISLANDBug board: No to staff paying insuranceIn swan song, Lord-Papy slams GoodmanBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROL
In the middle of Key West Harbor, theres a modern-day Gilligans Island just a short dinghy ride from the Schooner Wharf Bar. Its 21 acres of wild green space with a rusting barbecue grill and an empty beer keg swinging from a tree.And if you thought the fictional island on the 1960s TV show harbored a quirky assortment of characters, get a load of the ones whove figured in Wisteria Island history:There was Key West luxury developer Pritam Singh, who lived on the rent-free paradise as a hippie. There were the pot-smokers, partiers, poets and picnickers as well as artists, vagrants and nature-seekers who used it to get away from civilization for hours, days or even weeks at a time. Navy SEALs trained for secret missions on its terrain. Thieves used it, too, as a chop shop for stolen outboard motors. Over the past four decades, it seems like just about everyone has used the island except its acknowledged owners: The Bernsteins, a well-to-do family with New York roots who developed most of nearby Stock Island. We kind of ignored it, Roger Bernstein said. But in 2007, Bernstein and his brother, Jordan, decided it was time to turn their trophy property into a luxury resort. Those who loved the scruffy island created during a Navy channel-dredging project around the turn of the last century had other ideas. Among them were Naja and Arnaud Girard, who own a Key West marine assistance and boat salvage company. The couple have fond memories of their two children playing on the island with kids from other live-aboard families who grew up on boats anchored off its shore.Tripped upThe Girards started poking around Washington, D.C., archives and online databases, trying to find a way to keep at least some of the island undeveloped. They hit the jackpot: Documents that suggested the Bernsteins could not own the island because the Navy had not given up title to Wisteria formerly known as Christmas Tree Island until 1982. And when it did, it transferred it to the U.S. Department of the Interior, not the state of Florida. This came out of nowhere, said Barry Richard, an attorney with Greenberg Traurig, which represents the Bernsteins. I have to say it came out of a relatively low administrative level ... and may well be, at some point, reversed administratively. But it is not a risk we can take. As a result, Key Wests local drama has turned into a federal case: F.E.B. Corp. vs. the United States of America. The ownership controversy prompted the Monroe County property appraiser to slash the islands valuation to $17,900 (it once was $700,000), and it has brought to a halt the Bernsteinseffort to turn Wisteria into a resort that mirrors its twin spoil island, Sunset Key. The Bernstein brothers are shocked that the feds are disregarding the warranty deed their late father, Ben, obtained for $155,000 in 1967, the four decades worth of property taxes theyve paid and the Submerged Lands Act of 1953, which they believe confirms their ownership.This is a land grab by the federal government of epic proportions, Roger Bernstein said.But according to Naja Girard, the real land grab occurred in 1951, when the state auctioned off the island. She dug up documents that showed the Navy claimed ownership at the time and objected to the auction. The state went ahead, anyway.The winning bid was $2,769 by Paul Sawyer, acting as an agent for longtime state Rep. Bernie C. Papy Sr. He took over the warranty deed for $6,100 in early 1952.The honorable Papy knew everyone, Naja Girard said. And he knew the Navy was planning on putting a fuel depot with tanks on Wisteria Island. The Navy didnt end up needing Wisteria, but Papy still made a nice profit.Changing handsHe sold Wisteria in 1956 for $115,500 to Connecticut businessman Amaryk Aldo. Six years later, it changed hands again, purchased by a mystery group of six men known as Wisteria Island Inc. They, too, did nothing with the island, finally agreeing to sell it for $160,000 to Key West native David Wolkowsky and his partner, Clayton Partin.We had big, big plans, said Wolkowsky. They hired the New York firm that designed the Lincoln Center. It came up with a luxury complex that was eye-popping at the time: 60 homes, a yacht club and a three-hole golf course. Wolkowsky said he borrowed $20,000 from Ben Bernstein to complete the sale. But when he asked for an extension to repay the loan, Bernstein would not give it to him and instead took over the purchase agreement in 1967. I never knew there was any problem with the title, Wolkowsky said.Ben Bernstein had considered creating a houseboat row on the island, but he died in 1973. His widow, Miriam, took over the family enterprises with the help of her two sons.Rumor had it that old lady Bernstein didnt care if anybody was out there and didnt want the island developed, said Cliff Hartman, a palm-frond weaver who once lived on the island. She wanted it to be a sanctuary for hermit crabs and butterflies. Not so, said Roger Bernstein. Over the years, he said, the family entertained ideas for a campground and other projects, but none seemed right. Miriam Bernstein died in 2004, and three years later Roger Bernstein presented a development plan to Monroe County for 35 vacation homes, 35 rental cottages with 85 bedrooms, five workforce houses, a bar, restaurant, retail store and boat moorings.The lawsuitThe BernsteinsF.E.B. Corp. filed suit against the United States in August, arguing the federal government ceded ownership of the submerged bay bottom on which the island was later built when Florida was admitted to the union in 1845. Even the U.S. Navy thought the Bernsteins owned the island in 2005 and 2006, their lawyers say, when it entered into license agreements to use the property for Navy SEALtraining. But the Bureau of Land Management determined the Navy owned the land at the time of the first private sale, with documents that include a 1924 executive order in which President Coolidge reserved the island for naval purposes. The feds also cited a 1928 lease the Navy entered into with Lowe Fish Co. for a shark-skinning operation on the island. Last month, the U.S. Attorneys Office in Miami filed a motion to dismiss F.E.B. Corp.s lawsuit, arguing the statutory window for such a claim closed more than 50 years ago. The F.E.B. Corp. responded that the United States had never acquired title to the island. So if the federal government grabs it and no federal agency wants to use it, the island will go to public auction, Bernstein said. Somebody is going to buy it, and its not going to be me.... Its going to be somebody who wants to turn a quick buck and get out. Somebody who doesnt give a damn about Key West.

It might be a while before anyone traverses the treetops, but Crane Point Museum and Nature Center Director Loretta Geotis said the process to construct a zip-line course at the Marathon nonprofit is under way. Weve got a team together working on the permitting and it should be into the city before the end of the month and were just progressing forward with the paperwork, she said. Theres a lot of details.The permit to which Geotis refers is a conditional use, which is required of any new development in Marathon. She said Crane Point has also completed an environmental review that is part of the conditional-use process.In September, the City Council approved, by a 3-2 vote, a sub-grant agreement with the state Department of Economic Opportunity to secure a $735,000 Community Development Block Grant. Then-Mayor Pete Worthington and Vice Mayor Richard Keating dissented.I know when people arent hearing anything, they have a tendency to think theres nothing going on. Were adhering to the guidelines of the grant so theres no deviation anywhere, she said.City Manager Roger Hernstadt said the money is in place for the estimated $1.1 million project.The hard part of it is ahead of them. Now they have to actually do it, he said.Hernstadt added that there is not so much a timeline for the grant as an expectation of progress being made.We send out periodic progress report and theyll continue to work with you as long as they see progress, he said.Zip-lines are popular tourist attractions around the globe, but some Keys residents have opposed one at Crane Point. They claim it would negatively affect endangered white-crowned pigeon hammock and that job and revenue estimates required for the grant have been grossly overstated.

AKey West man has been released from jail on $5,000 bond following his Monday arrest for allegedly disposing of a dog by tossing it into the water while it was caged on Sept. 19. Darrell Eacholes, 28, is charged not with animal cruelty but unlawful disposal of a dead animal. The cream-colored dog with a purple collar was found submerged in the cage by a bridge off U.S. 1 on Boca Chica Road in the Lower Keys. Anecropsy was inconclusive in determining the cause of the dogs death, the Sheriffs Office said. However, Eacholeswife reportedly told Detective David Cruz that the dog, Bella, was sick and unresponsive, and they didnt have money to take it to a veterinarian. When assigned to the case, Cruz contacted the company that made the cage in which the dog was found and discovered four people in the Lower Keys who had bought one. After checking with all four, only one couldnt say where his cage was Eacholes, Deputy Becky Herrin said. Cruz then visited veterinarians in the Lower Keys, asking about the dog and Eacholes. At The Animal Hospital on Second Street on Stock Island, staff recognized the dog and confirmed Eacholes owned it, Herrin said. They said they treated the dog, a setter/American Eskimo mix, two days before it was found dead. Herrin said Eacholes wife told Cruz that Eacholes had taken Bella from their home but didnt tell her where he took it. Eacholes then confirmed hed thrown the dog into the water, Herrin said. She said that if you find you cannot care for your pet, you should contact the local animal shelter. Despite being under fire for financial problems on a Broward County sewer project, the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority on Wednesday gave a $35.7 million contract to Giannetti Contracting Corp. to help build the Cudjoe Regional sewer system in the Lower Keys. Giannetti got the contract to work in the systems Inner Island area. Aqueduct Authority staff also approved a $79.8 million contract to Layne Heavy Civil for the Outer Island system and $21.9 million to Wharton Smith for the Lower Keys treatment plant. The inner islands include Upper Sugarloaf Key, Cudjoe Key and Summerland Key. The system design is complete and will be constructed first. The outer islands consist of Lower Sugarloaf Key, Ramrod Key and up through Big Pine. That project is about 30 percent designed and would be on the 201314 tax roll. Overall, the Cudjoe Regional system will take in around 7,000 parcels from Cudjoe Key to Big Pine Key. In Broward while working on a $6.5 million Dania project, Giannetti, based in Sterling Heights, Mich., was found by the Broward County Inspector Generals Office to have taken part in what a June report describes as a scheme to evade mandates to use locally owned small businesses as subcontractors. The primary target of the Broward County Inspector General Offices 15-page report was a subcontractor trucking company that grew too large to qualify as a small business under Browards set-aside for small businesses, known as the County Business Enterprises program.Stanford and Sons Trucking attempted to get approved small businesses to act as a pass-through for more than $400,000 in work that Stanford performed on the project under primary contractor Giannetti.The report indicates that Giannetti issued checks to smaller trucking firms that actually did little or no work. Giannetti executives said they believed Stanford and Sons Trucking had contracted legally with the smaller firms.

The Columbine school shootings taught us the need for immediate action and having established procedures. It is also important we attend to the humanness of all those involved. I offer this from first-hand experience: During the Columbine shootings (April 20, 1999), I lived in Jefferson County, Colo., had worked with the school district and was serving as executive director of the Colorado Education Association. Two lessons learned: Attend closely to our first-engagement responders. As with all first-responders or caregivers be it fire and rescue workers in the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001, or Superstorm Sandy, or those attending to ailing loved ones those on the ground need tending. Frequent face-to-face gatherings helped keep our receptionists, secretaries and staff working with teachers and all school employees informed and literally in touch with each other. We need ongoing connecting and nurturing with all of our front-line first-engagers. Be aware of the ripple effect and the echo of those ripples. The images and impacts of violence have an unseeable impact on each of us. There is no way of knowing what will trigger these deep emotions. Having made our way through the immediate trauma of Columbine and beginning the healing at the schools across the county and state, I was stopped cold in my tracks when I walked into the local shopping mall six months later. The entire interior of the Lakewood Mall, including up the staircases and hanging displays, was covered with a display of the letters, artwork, banners and items of support that had been sent from around the world. It was both a reminder of the pain wed all experienced and the love and courage that dwells in all human hearts. As we enter this national dialogue on ending violence and building a more peaceable society, lets focus on this: How do we want to live together in our community, to end isolation and alienation, to truly be One Human Family? Marilyn Rogers IslamoradaMore school deputiesI was very disturbed to learn that the Monroe County Sheriffs Office assigns one deputy (school resource officer) to Marathon Middle School, Marathon High School and Stanley Switlik Elementary in Marathon. The other county schools each have a full-time, dedicated SRO. Dividing one deputy among the elementary, middle and high schools in Marathon might be cost efficient but strikes me as less safety-minded than having at least one officer per school. Since this policy is up for review by the Sheriffs Office, I hope that a change will be made in favor of more coverage for the Marathon schools. If not, the School Board should inquire as to why not. Our kids and teachers deserve better. Lee Rohe Summerland KeyBlame video gamesThe cultural decline and vacuum confronting our children has been filled with a plethora of entertainment whose technological emphasis is on violence. Internet games and videos have seductively taken the minds of these very young and impressionable kids to a place where some find joy, comfort and excitement when they are able to rapidly kill the individuals set before them on their video screens. Their skills are sharpened as they progress into the upward realms of each challenge. Upon maxing out their kill ratio, they promptly move on to their next murderous conquest. This scenario regularly plays itself out for countless hours a day. It has been going on for decades. Violent thoughts and emotional detachment have gained a stranglehold on many children. They competitively pursue these games into adulthood. At some point, it appears that these players may become mesmerized with the self-induced pleasure gotten from the ease and proficiency with which they increase their dominance over the fictitious people they kill. Amind-numbing desensitization toward their symbolic reality can take hold. Studies indicate these malleable brains become saturated with stimulating chemicals while engaged in these activities. It produces a state of arousal that is desirable and addictive. These impulses establish neuro pathways that can be hard wired into a childs brain. Evidence suggests that after a person becomes satiated with these theoretical killings, some need to pursue an actual event where a life is taken. Their normal bombardment of violent visual stimuli no longer satisfies them. This need to continue the pursuit of further stimulation, so that a pleasured state of mind may be achieved, is an unusually strong impulse. As families allow their children to be exposed to a steady stream of violence, United States law forbids the medical treatment of a baby who survived a botched late-term abortion. The collective consciousness of this country, as it is manifested in our leadership, has been reduced to a pathetic assembly of self-absorbed pretenders, unwilling to face the destructive consequences that their failed ideas, policies and ideologies are having upon the children in our society. Relief for the Sandy Hook survivors, along with our nation at large, will not come from any human power or authority. John Donnelly Key LargoFirings following public disclosure of troubles at the state insurance company might be tip of the icebergFar more oversight is needed at Citizens Property Insurance Corp., the state-backed property insurer, so Gov. Rick Scotts proposal to create an inspector general position for the company has merit. But it is premature. The governors own inspector general is investigating reports of misbehavior at the agency and has yet to file reports that reveal what exactly happened and what is needed to restore credibility. The operation is now very suspect. When internal auditors with CitizensOffice of Corporate Integrity detailed a series of troubling incidents, including improper relationships, favoritism and lavish spending and travel, they were fired. Citizens chief Barry Gilway blandly concedes the timing of the firings was dumb, but explains he was trying to make the operation more efficient, including hiring more forensic auditors. Perhaps, but from the outside, this looks to be a blatant attempt to silence whistleblowers. The review ordered by Scott should bring some clarity, but it is obvious reforms are needed. State Sen. Jack Latvala, who chairs the Senates Ethics and Elections Committee, is on target when he says safeguards are needed to prevent hijinks. He likes Scotts plan, as do we, but its best to wait until the investigation is complete before deciding on specific remedies. Dan Krassner, head of Integrity Florida, a nonpartisan, nonprofit government watchdog, puts it well: Just adding another seat on the bus may not solve all the problems. Scott and legislative leaders want Citizens to increase premiums to market rates to encourage private insurers to return to Florida and cut the risk to policyholders. The public, already resistant to higher rates, is certainly not going to accept hikes from an agency known for mismanagement and wild spending. An inspector general might be just whats needed at Citizens, but the investigations may show even more extensive repairs are needed. Tampa TribuneKeysDEPdistrict welcomes two countiesFlorida has always known that protection of its unique environment is imperative. In the 1960s, Florida had four agencies that divided the task of protecting our environment. In the years since, those agencies have streamlined and merged, and in the 1990s the Florida Department of Environmental Protection was created to oversee many different aspects of the environment. The regulatory programs, consisting of six district offices, include duties such as the siting of facilities; and permitting and compliance assistance for facilities that may affect air pollution, water pollution, use of wetlands and shorelines, waste facilities, power plants and natural gas lines. The department manages more than 10,000 acres of state lands, including our state parks, greenways and trails, and wildlife management areas; and is deeply involved with the restoration of Everglades National Park. The department also monitors the environmental health of the states water bodies and oversees the reclamation of mined lands, in addition to many other functions. Over the years it has been the goal of the department to become a more efficient tool to the residents of the state through streamlining efforts and statewide consistency in the implementation of rules and policies. In an ongoing effort to achieve the goal of serving the public more efficiently, the department has made some adjustments to the district boundaries. The South District office in Fort Myers is very pleased to welcome DeSoto and Sarasota counties into our district. Beginning Jan. 1, any pending permits, compliance assistance efforts or enforcement cases will remain within the district office where they began. After Jan. 1, all new cases will be handled by the South District office. The goal of the South District office is to make this transition as seamless and easy as possible. The department, along with its partners in the DeSoto County, will be hosting an open house meet-and-greet to introduce ourselves and answer questions. This open house will also feature a free state park pass for anyone who brings an item to recycle. The open house will take place on Jan. 8 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Turner Center Exhibit Hall, 2250 NE Roan St., Arcadia. The department is looking forward to hosting an open house for Sarasota County sometime early in 2013. The South District staff looks forward to learning the new areas and working with new people and will continue to provide high-level service to our new counties, as well as maintain the historically high level of service provided to the counties already served from that office. The South District supports industry in nine counties in South Florida, including the Florida Keys, by establishing and maintaining partnerships with regional businesses and business development organizations. The best of the coastal landscapes have been set aside for protection in 10 aquatic preserves, one of 28 national estuarine research reserves at Rookery Bay, and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. The district also enjoys a variety of scenic waterways, including the portions of the Myakka and Peace rivers, and the Great Calusa Blueway, and includes portions of Lake Okeechobee. The District is home to Fakahatchee Strand State Park, Big Cypress National Preserve and portions of Everglades National Park, as well as 25 state parks.

You are told the protocol is Ain order to get to C. By habit, you do B to get to C instead, and the boss doesnt approve. So you try like hell to learn to do it the boss way. Then, after getting reprimanded for every tiny way it is not exactly how the boss wants it for weeks, ultimately you decide you cant stand the job for all the micromanagement. Then you look around you and start to realize that everyone else is doing B, D, or E to get to C, but they are golden children who can do no wrong. You say to yourself, I feel like I must be going insane. I feel like I was set up for failure. No, youre not going insane. But yes, you were set up for failure. And if its any consolation, yes, other people have experienced the very same thing. I sincerely hope you gave notice before you were fired, because that is exactly where this scenario is going. Your boss apparently is a graduate, magna cum laude, of the Passive-Aggressive School of Management. The way these people deal with a problem employee at least in their eyes is to make their working life so miserable that theyll quit. Sometimes they just dont like you, or they want you to resign so you cant file for unemployment. But mostly, it is simply easier for them to harass you than to sit you down and talk to you, logically and unemotionally, about what youre doing wrong and set up an improvement plan for you. So what do you do if you find yourself in this situation? It depends on whether you want or need to stay with this company. Either way, start by updating your resume. This review of your accomplishments will give you an added psychological boost knowing that youre not the slacker/imbecile youve been made out to be. If you want to stay, understand that your situation will not get better unless you take the initiative and that means sitting down with the boss to discuss it. Write down what you want to say, pointing out what youve observed. Dont use any blaming language, or drag anyone else into your conversation. Say it out loud. Polish it. Ask someone to stand in as your boss. Tell him how you think the boss will react and then ask him to exaggerate it massively. This will prepare you to be ready for anything. You might want to try something like this: You have told me you are not happy with the way I accomplish the tasks that Im given. I have made these efforts [list them here] to follow the protocol you have established, but you still arent happy. What is it that you would like me to change or do differently? When youve practiced it to the point where you feel confident you can have this conversation without losing your cool, talk to your boss. Pick the right time when you and your boss are both calm, and theres no crisis looming. Give your speech and then listen to the response, from beginning to end. Dont be defensive and dont interrupt. Is it something you can live with? But my advice is this: Look for another job, not just because of the management issue, but because a company that is so rigid in its way of doing business will not survive for long.

Though airfare-style pricing is catching on in other industries, many theme parks typically have offered it only for special events. But the idea of boosting revenue with such dynamic pricing and other types of variable-ticket systems has been getting some attention. This month, for example, the topic drew scores of park operators to a panel discussion in Orlando during the annual meeting of the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions, the industrys largest trade group. Day-of-the-week pricing, where you price cheaper during the week and more expensive on the weekends, is extremely uncommon. I think theres a gold mine right there, said Martin Lewison, an assistant professor at Farmingdale State College in New York who studies attraction pricing. More parks are using seasonal pricing high season, low season, shoulderseasons pricing, Lewison said. Remember, this is an industry that used to be, Set it and forget it.The price was set for the season, and nobody thought about it again. While not all theme parks use variable-pricing systems for everyday admission, the approach does pop up in conjunction with certain special events and add-on services. Walt Disney World, for example, uses a sliding scale for tickets to Mickeys Very Merry Christmas Party, an after-hours event presented in the Magic Kingdom during the holiday season. An advance adult ticket for a Thursday might cost $58.95, while the same ticket for a Friday might sell for $64.95. This year, the price for such a ticket peaked at $67.95 for the final party on Dec. 21. The company uses a similar structure for Mickeys NotSo-Scary Halloween Party nights. Universal Orlando charges less on quieter evenings for admission to its annual Halloween Horror Nights. This year, Florida residents were able to buy single-night tickets for Sundays, Wednesdays or Thursdays for $41.99 each. But on Fridays the price was $51.99, and on Saturdays it rose again to $66.99. Universal also uses a dynamic system to price its Universal Express, a supplemental, go-to-the-front-ofthe-line pass good at many of its theme parksattractions. The price of each pass is tied to demand. Express passes cost as little as $19.99 each on some days but can jump to $25.99 or $49.99 on others. This year, for a few days right after Christmas, Universal is charging $69.99 a day for a pass good only in Universal Studios and $99.99 for a pass good in Islands of Adventure or $109.99 for a pass good in both. At SeaWorld Orlandos Discovery Cove, a boutique park that requires reservations, the admission price varies throughout the year, a dynamic model that allows our guests the ability to find and take advantage of lower prices during off-peak seasons, said Toni Caracciolo, the parks vice president of marketing. I think there was a lot of dialogue a couple years ago on whether consumers were willing to accept this, said Scott Sanders, a former Walt Disney Parks and Resorts vice president who is now president of Integrated Insight Inc., a Central Florida consulting company. The jury is out, but I believe theyre starting to lean to the fact that, yes, [consumers] will, Sanders told park operators at the IAAPAconvention this month. In general, consumers are willing to accept pricing as long as they perceive it to be fair. Sanders doesnt think attractions need to follow the lead of airlines, whose pricing systems are too complicated. He thinks Disney, his former employer, is doing a good job with its theme-park pricing, which is built around its Magic Your Way tickets. Though a one-day, two-day or three-day ticket costs the same throughout the year, the more days of admission you buy, the less you pay per day. Neither Universal Orlando nor Disney Parks and Resorts would discuss their pricing strategies. Theme-park consultant Dennis Speigel said he thinks the major parks are looking into airline-style pricing. The theme-park arena and world which Ive been in all my life is slow to grasp and pick up on things like this, he said. But its coming. Its going to happen.Day of week among reasons how costs setBy SARA K.CLARKEOrlando SentinelTOURISM This is one of two Dumbo the Flying Elephant rides at the Fantasyland expansion at Walt Disney World. IRS: 100M taxpayers face possible delaysUp to 100 million taxpayers about two-thirds of all filers wont be able to file their 2012 tax returns until late March if Congress doesnt adjust the alternative minimum tax by the end of the year, the Internal Revenue Service said Wednesday. Congress routinely adjusts the AMTto spare millions of middle-income taxpayers from steep tax increases. But the fix for 2012 is caught up in negotiations over the year-end fiscal cliff of automatic tax increases and spending cuts. If Congress doesnt fix the AMTretroactively to the beginning of 2012, the tax would hit an additional 28 million filers, increasing their taxes by an average of $3,700. Millions of others would face filing delays because the annual fix affects their tax credits. The last adjustment expired at the end of 2011, and the IRS assumed Congress would adjust the tax again when it set up its computer systems for the upcoming filing season, acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller said in a letter to Congress. It would take until late March at the earliest for the agency to re-work its computers, he said. This scenario would leave taxpayers a small window to meet the April 15 filing deadline. The IRS, however, would not comment on any proposal to extend the filing deadline. The AMTwas first enacted in 1969 to ensure that wealthy people cant use tax breaks to avoid paying any federal taxes. The tax, however, was never adjusted for inflation, so Congress routinely patches it to keep it from hitting middle-income families. In a November letter to lawmakers, Miller said 60 million filers could face filing delays, if the AMTis not addressed. On Wednesday, he said 80 million to 100 million filers could face delays. The number grew because of millions of taxpayers ultimately may not pay the AMT but will have to do calculations to make sure. That up to 100 million American households could be impacted according to the IRS demonstrates the urgency in which Congress and the White House must reach a reasonable, balanced solution to stopping the fiscal cliff, said Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, the top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee. The alternative minimum tax simply has to be permanently fixed. Hatch and other Republicans said the AMT issue provides a good reason to vote for House Speaker John Boehners plan to extend expiring tax cuts for everyone who makes less than $1 million.

Such activities may adversely affect the historic property, floodplain or wetland, or may result in continuing vulnerability to flood damage. Presidential Executive Orders 11988 and 11990 require that all federal actions in or affecting the floodplain or wetlands be reviewed for opportunities to be relocated, and evaluated for social, economic, historical, environmental, legal, and safety considerations. Where there is no opportunity to relocate, FEMA is required to undertake a detailed review to determine what measures may be taken to minimize future damages. The public is invited to participate in the process of identifying alternatives and analyzing their impacts. FEMA has determined that for certain types of facilities there are normally no alternatives to restoration in the floodplain or wetland. These are facilities that meet all of the following criteria: 1) FEMAs estimate of the cost of repairs is less than 50% of the cost to replace the entire facility and is less than $100,000; 2) the facility is not located in a floodway; 3) the facility has not sustained major structural damage in a previous Presidentially declared flooding disaster or emergency; and 4) the facility is not critical (e.g., the facility is not a hospital, generating plant, emergency operations center, or a facility that contains dangerous materials). FEMA intends to provide assistance for the restoration of these facilities to their pre -disaster condition, except where certain measures to mitigate the effect of future flooding or other hazards are included in the work. For example, a bridge or culvert restoration may include a larger waterway opening to decrease the risk of future washouts. For routine activities, this will be the only public notice provided. Other activities and those involving facilities that do not meet the four criteria listed above are required to undergo more detailed review, including the study of alternate locations. Subsequent public notices regarding such projects will be published, if necessary, as more specific information becomes available. In many cases, an applicant may have started facility restoration before federal involvement. Even if the facility must undergo detailed review and analysis of alternate locations, FEMA will fund eligible restoration at the original location if the facility is functionally dependent on its floodplain location (e.g., bridges and flood control facilities), or the project facilitates an open space use, or the facility is an integral part of a larger network that is impractical or uneconomical to relocate, such as a road. In such cases, FEMA must also examine the possible effects of not restoring the facility, minimizing floodplain or wetland impacts, and determining both that an overriding public need for the facility clearly outweighs the Executive Order requirements to avoid the floodplain or wetland and that the site is the only practicable alternative. State of Florida and local officials will confirm to FEMA that proposed actions comply with all applicable state and local floodplain management and wetland protection requirements. FEMA also intends to provide HMGP funding to the state of Florida to mitigate future disaster damages. These projects may include construction of new facilities, modification of existing, undamaged facilities, relocation of facilities out of floodplains, demolition of structures, or other types of projects to mitigate future disaster damages. In the course of developing project proposals, subsequent public notices will be published if necessary as more specific information becomes available. The National Historic Preservation Act requires federal agencies to take into account the effect of their undertakings on historic properties. Those actions or activities affecting buildings, structures, districts or objects 50 years or older or that affect archeological sites or undisturbed ground will require further review to determine if the property is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (Register). If the property is determined to be eligible for the Register and FEMAs undertaking will adversely affect it, FEMA will provide additional public notices. For historic properties not adversely affected by FEMAs undertaking, this will be the only public notice. As noted, this may be the only public notice regarding the above-described actions under the PA and HMGP programs. Interested persons may obtain information about these actions or a specific project by writing to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, 1940 N. Monroe Street, Suite 79, Tallahassee, Florida 32303. Comments should be sent in writing to the attention of the Environmental and Historic Preservation Manager at the above address within 15 days of the date of this notice.

Saturday,December 22,2012 3B Keynoter KeysNet.com Living Capt. Randy ToweSun Clothing Custom RodsIn stock!MM 83 Bayside Islamorada, FL 305-664-2786 Chefs encourage fresh Cuba diningRice, beans, pork and lots of it. Thats a typical restaurant meal in Cuba, widely regarded by travelers as a culinary wasteland where the variety and quality of raw ingredients leave much to be desired. But a delegation of chefs from Alice Waterscelebrated Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, Calif., was recently in Havana on a mission to encourage change in the Cuban diet by exposing islanders to healthier dishes with more fruits and vegetables, preferably grown organically and sustainably by local food cooperatives.Members of the so-called Planting Seeds delegation held give-and-take seminars in Havana with chefs and culinary students about slow food. They also put on two massive dinners, including a fivecourse, five-star meal at the privately run Le Chansonnier, which drew culinary, artistic and influential leaders like President Raul Castros daughter, Mariela.A100-person bash was held at a state-run restaurant for luminaries such as Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates, California state Sen. Loni Hancock and senior Cuban officials who are in position to affect agricultural policy.The California chefs toured organic farms and marveled at the fresh, pesticide-free produce, which they stuffed into car trunks as the base foodstuffs for the dinners. And by dreaming up new uses for workaday ingredients, they gave their Cuban counterparts a lot to think about.Luis Ramon Battle, for one, has seen plenty of guava during his long cooking career, but never thought to combine it with rabbit-liver pate atop a crispy wafer. After tasting the savorysweet appetizer at the Chansonnier dinner, hes considering adding it to the menu at his own privately run restaurant, which opened last year in Havana.The cracker is practically neutral. The pate gives you all the classic flavor of liver, high in acid. But at the end you sense the guava as a very subtle, very delicate touch, said Battle, who is head chef at Divino in Havana. I loved it.FlexibilityAt Chez Panisse, the chefs only decide at the last minute what to serve, based on whats available and fresh. Their advice to Cuban cooks who struggle with unreliable supply of even basics such as eggs and potatoes: Be flexible, and dont worry too much about maintaining a fixed menu. Walk around the farm. Get a feel for all the vegetables and start using your imagination about how you can make those vegetables taste like what they are, said Jerome Waag, head chef at Chez Panisse, crackling a chard-like leafy green with his fingers for emphasis. Thats what we do in California. Thats the way we like to cook. We keep things really simple. Cuba has a longstanding culture of organic farming by necessity. During the socalled Special Period of the 1990s, many private urban plots popped up in Havana amid austerity that followed the collapse of Cubas backer, the Soviet Union. Unlike in the United States, pesticide-free is largely the rule here rather than the exception, mostly due to a lack of supply. And a new generation of privately run restaurants known as paladars has breathed life into Cubas culinary scene. But there are obstacles to the Chez Panisse ethos of fresh-is-best. At the same farmersmarket that enamored the chefs on the outskirts of Havana, locals said wages have not kept up with a 20 percent rise in food prices last year. Two buyers said the quality was great but they can only afford to shop there once or twice a month. Prices that astonish an outsider $1 gets you a small bag of produce, enough for a couple of meals are steep for Cubans who earn about $20 a month on average. Even getting to a produce market can be tough because most Cubans dont own a car and public transportation is spotty. Supply is heavily dependent on the season.Limited optionsThe only option in the summer is to work with what little there is, like eggplant. There are no carrots, said Laura Fernandez Cordoba, a partner at Le Chansonnier. The options are very limited.Raul Castro has moved to expand private and cooperative agriculture, lease out fallow state land and facilitate direct sales to stateand private-run eateries. The government has also promoted green belts around major cities to help reduce the distance food must travel in a country where delays and inefficiency sometimes cause food to rot before it reaches consumers.Even so, meat is often frozen, thawed and refrozen while still in the supply chain. Other, cultural factors would seem to make the Chez Panisse model a tough sell.Restaurants here typically overcook vegetables until they are mushy, even for salads. Many Cubans who are able to cobble together hard currency opt for processed foods in supermarkets like canned vegetables, dried mashed potatoes or jarred spaghetti sauce. And a common household costcutting practice is to reuse cooking grease again and again, until each meal is infused with the same underlying taste and odor.We are trying to make the idea of nutrition a little more flexible, said Battle, the chef at Divino, so people understand it a little more.Suggestions are embraced on the islandBy PETER ORSIAssociated PressFOOD Associated Press photo by RAMON ESPINOSAU.S.chef Steve Sullivan holds plates of bread as fellow chef Charlie Hallowell (right) looks toward the dining room of the privately run restaurant Le Chansonnier in Havana,Cuba, on Dec.7.How to keep a lid on bartabsIts easy to work up a thirst on a cruise. Some guests quench that feeling with soda, fruit juice, a latte or tea. Others may order a glass of wine or a beer with lunch, a cocktail or two before dinner and share a bottle of wine with their companion during the evening meal. All this can add up to a substantial sum on your cruise tab. More cruise lines, however, are putting in place package plans for both soft and alcoholic drinks that provide convenience as well as shave gueststotal costs.Just this year, four cruise lines have started offering drinks packages or are testing them on a limited scale. Most of the plans include beer, certain wines and cocktails in the range of $40 to $50 per day.Carnival began testing an all-inclusive drinks program on certain ships in August. Norwegian is testing one on three of its ships. Royal Caribbean last year placed a drinks program on three of its ships that sail in Europe and this year is testing a similar program on its Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, which sail out of Fort Lauderdale. Why the rush this year to add drinks packages to the cruise menu? The cruise lines wouldnt do this if it werent profitable, said Colleen McDaniel of the CruiseCritic.com website. Theyre all falling in line. So far, passenger reaction to the new packages has been favorable.The packages have been very popular and well received, said Scott Steenrod, Celebritys vice president of food and beverage operations. Norwegians AnneMarie Matthews also said that that lines program has been well received and said Nor-wegian should decide soon whether to make it permanent.Of course, the value of such plans depends on how much the guest consumes. A package would not be economical for someone who has perhaps a single cocktail before dinner. In such cases, guests are better off paying for each drink as they go. As one passenger, Frederik Dolk of Ljusdal, Sweden, commented on a CruiseCritic.com message board: If a drink costs $8, I have to drink at least six drinks each day just to break even. On an average sea day I might have two or three. On a port day, even fewer. On top of that, my wife has to buy a package and she drinks even less than me. These packages are a no go for me. On the other hand, another Cruise Critic posting, from misha1, praised the packages. We tried the premium alcohol package on our last cruise for the first time. The convenience was great! Many times we were not charged the overage [over the package allowance]. Overall, we were very pleased.

Artists from Germany, the U.S. Virgin Islands and seven American states have taken over Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park, the Key West Garden Club at the West Martello Tower and Higgs Beach with 22 works created from a variety of natural materials, found and recycled objects. Truly interactive with their environment, many of the pieces change with the landscape, the time of day and the weather. Vera Vasek, executive director of Sculpture Key West, said the internationally acclaimed exhibition is a little different each year based on the proposals submitted, but the overall focus is on contemporary art. Were not looking for a particular theme, but youre dealing with contemporary issues, she said. There are so many varied artist backgrounds, and that is part of the beauty of the exhibition. It kind of evolves and has a life of its own. At the Civil War-era Fort Zachary Taylor, at the end of Southard Street beyond Truman Annex, viewers can walk along the path beside the shipping channel for an intimate look at works like Tebelio Diazs Flotilla. This collection of rafts was crafted from pieces of wood and tree branches with large plastic water bottles to represent floats. Inside the bottles rest folded paper boats made from copies of an old U.S. Coast Guard pamphlet warning against bringing illegal aliens into the United States. Diaz left Cuba for the United States at 14, and the immigrant experience has been a defining theme of his work. Flotillais specifically about the mass Cuban migration during the Mariel boatlift in the s, he said. Key West was an ideal spot for my project next to the Coast Guard station where the flyers I used for my paper boats originated. The view from on top of the fort makes it easier grasp the concepts of larger sculptures, like Bill Woods Dense Pack Park and Jiwan Noah Singhs Home. Wood first exhibited his piece in 1983 in his home state of Virginia as a response to the MX missile dense-pack controversy. Using 32 20-inch polished aluminum discs, he creates a highly concentrated field of light and reflection. Alocal artist, Singh built a representational geometric wood-stacked sculpture with an intricate spiral pattern. The title references the Truman Annex where he lived while his father developed the area in the late 1980s and early s.

Other artists featured at Fort Zachary include Thea Lanzisero, Ursula Clark, Bonnie Rychlak, Jim Racchi, William Bennett, Jacquelyn Sanchez, Christopher Newman, Jennifer Martin and Richard Brachman. The Key West Garden Club at the West Martello Tower (Atlantic Boulevard at White Street) is another Civil War-era structure, and the red brick casements prove an excellent backdrop for the installations like Carrie Daigles Echinozoa. The Pennsylvania artist created an organic flowing hybrid of plant and sea creatures suspended from the roof. Local artist John Martini chose the red brick perimeter of the inner courtyard for his large steel biomorphic sculpture, Birdhead. Other artists featured at the West Martello include Tyler Buckheim, Nellie Appleby, Creighton Michael and Susan Bailey. U.S. Virgin Islands artist William Thompson livens up the sand at Higgs Beach, which is near the West Martello Tower,with Coral Form Fish Study, a colorful two-piece wooden work. Its been wonderful to have Higgs Beach as a new venue, Vasek said. Thompson wanted his sculpture to be on the beach because it represents the thriving coral reef and fish. He wanted people to be able to see the work and then look out over the water. By Jan. 15, a large cast concrete abstract shell by German artist Gereon Krebber called Untitled (Analogue) will join Thompsons work on the beach. While the show is still fairly new, reviews from the public have been positive. Fred Strolle, who lives in Key West, said he enjoyed the proximity of the works to the water and the edginess of the themes. The show underscores the artistic and creative side of our community, he said. I like the fact they are designed to provoke you to think, or react or admire.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 6B Saturday,December 22,2012 Get yourself UncorkedWith Christmas and New Years fast approaching, it might be timely to send out an early RSVPfor an ambitious food and wine pairing being cooked up by restaurant owners in Key Largo and Islamorada. From Jan. 10 through 19, dozens of venues will participate in what will be an expanded version of the former Key Largo Food & Wine Festival, which was held in late July and early August. Its new name: Uncorked. Designed to fill in business during the so-called soft summer season, gourmet meals and wine tastings gave summer visitors a little something different to do. Well, Jan. 10 to 19 is prime time, and the organizers hope the culinary extravaganza will firmly put the Upper Keys on the food festival map.

Ben Affleck (right) stars in Argo,a dramatization of a 1980 CIA-Canadian operation to extract six Americans out of revolutionary Iran.On the Roadpaved over by good intentionOn the Road.Rated R. 123 minutes. Walter SallesOn the Road was made with noble intentions, finely crafted filmmaking and handsome casting but, alas, it does not burn, burn, burn. Salles, the Brazilian filmmaker of The Motorcycle Diaries and Central Station, would seem the perfect director to translate to the screen Jack Kerouacs poetry of the road. But this On the Road, the first ever bigscreen adaptation of the Beat classic, doesnt pulse with the electric, mad rush of Kerouacs feverish phenomenon. Salles approached the book with reverence and deep research, and perhaps thats the problem that its spirit got suffocated by respectfulness. But if anything has made On the Road so beloved, its not its artful composition, but its yearning: The urgent passion of its characters to break free of themselves and postwar America and feel the freedom of the road. Salles captures the backpacks slung over hitchhiker shoulders, the rushing scenery out the car window, the sound of a dirt road underfoot. But his film, from the screenplay by Motorcycle Diaries writer Jose Rivera, ultimately feels conventional: Too neatly packaged and too affectedly acted. As our Dean Moriarty, Kerouacs stand-in for Neal Cassady, Garrett Hedlund (Tron) gives his all in an ultimately failed attempt to find Moriartys wild magnetism within him. As the center of the book and the film the Gatsby to our narrator Sal Paradise (Sam Riley) hes crucial to On the Road working. But hes missing the mythical spark of Moriarty and the grit of someone who grew up on the streets of Denver, stealing cars. Its worth noting how impossible a task this is, to translate On the Road or make flesh Moriarty. Many have tried but its no coincidence that its taken this long for a film version. Certainly, we can lament that we dont instead have an On the Road with James Dean or Marlon Brando, both of whom once considered it. Viggo Mortensen, Steve Buscemi, Terrence Howard and Amy Adams make cameos, mostly suggesting the prestige of the project. In the end, On the Road remains paved over.Films decent but packaged too neatlyBy JAKE COYLEAssociated PressFILM REVIEWCompelling look at remarkable yearOn the afternoon of New Years Day in 1863, an exhausted President Lincoln sat down to sign the Emancipation Proclamation, freeing all slaves in the rebellious Southern states. He called it the central act of my administration and the great event of the 19th Century. That was not an exaggeration. But the president had a problem. After hours of shaking hands during an open house at the White House, his hand was cramped and trembling. My arm is stiff and numb, he told a few witnesses, and he worried that his signature would be seen as shaky. He carefully inscribed his name on the document that he said knocked the bottom out of slavery. How Lincoln got to that point, when he could make the demise of slavery a Union goal in the Civil War, is the subject of David Von Drehles latest book. Its a compelling, sharply written narrative of the events of 1862, when the odds were against the Union itself. This was the year that saw the Civil War explode from a few small battles to the first total war of the Industrial Age, with carnage that was unimaginable when Southern states seceded the year before. As the Unions military efforts faltered, many in the North soured on the war effort. Congress was divided on what to do. The Supreme Court opposed the president. England and France threatened to enter the war on the side of the South. Navigating the treacherous events of 1862 tested all of Lincolns political skills. Von Drehle, a former Miami Herald reporter who is now Time magazines editor at large, keeps the focus on the evanescent character of Lincoln as he settled on a political and military strategy, maintaining a fractious coalition at home while artfully keeping foreign powers at bay. Lincoln often said slavery was doomed, but he was a gradualist and pragmatist on how to end it. He could not rush into it or risk losing the border slave states of Maryland and Kentucky. His keen sense of timing and political maneuvering and the bloody battle of Antietam, which repulsed Confederate forces gave him the space and time to issue the Emancipation Proclamation. Amid the shelves of Civil War tomes, Rise to Greatness stands out as a brisk, compact history of Lincolns evolution as a leader Frank Davies is a writer in northern Virginia.

Holidays busiest in six yearsThis Christmas travel season could be the busiest in six years, with AAApredicting that 93.3 million Americans will hit the road. Thats 1.6 percent more than last year and just 400,000 people shy of the 2006 record.More cars will crowd the highways than ever before, largely because finding a seat on a plane at a desirable price has gotten more difficult. AAAsays a record 84.4 million people will drive at least 50 miles between Dec. 22 and Jan. 1. Thats 90.5 percent of holiday travelers, up from 89.3 percent six years ago.Put another way: One in four Americans will drive long distances for Christmas and New Years. So expect plenty of traffic jams, crowded highway rest stops and overflowing toll plazas. The price of gas could be close to the average of $3.23 a gallon that drivers paid last Christmas Day. The price has dropped about 50 cents since September. AAAestimates the average price will range between $3.20 and $3.40 a gallon by New Years Day, according to AAA. Thats pricey, but hardly a deterrent to holiday travel.The year-end holiday season remains the least volatile of all travel holidays as Americans will not let economic conditions or high gas prices dictate if they go home for the holidays or kick off the New Year with a vacation, say AAAChief Executive Officer Robert Darbelnet.
