Story, 1B Builders safeguard comingKeys contractors could be in for a welcome windfall in the next few months when state insurer of last resort Citizens Property Insurance Corp. is expected to reinstate builders risk insurance for prospective homebuilders. Citizens did away with it last May as part of Gov. Rick Scotts mandate for the company to depopulate as many as half its roughly 2.84 million policies. This goes to the [state] Office of Insurance Regulation and they have to approve any rule changes. Its going to take a couple months going through the normal process, Citizens spokesman Michael Peltier said. Builders risk insurance provides protection up to $1 million in coverage to owners during construction of their new homes, or renovations. When it was killed, Keys residents couldnt find reasonably priced substitutes. We found that there were markets, specifically in Monroe, where homeowners couldnt find an alternative, Peltier said.Peltier said Citizens worked through state Rep. Holly Rascheins office to get builders risk reinstated. She said in a prepared statement that I am extremely pleased that Citizens has taken prompt action to address the concerns I brought to their attention on behalf of my constituents. According to Derek Martin-Vegue, owner of Keys Insurance in Marathon, typical Citizens builders risk policies were roughly $5,000.We were getting quotes from private insurance companies and it was around $38,000 to $40,000. It was ridiculous, he said. There were very few, if any, builders risk policies anyone was able to write. Thats why there was pressure on Citizens to reinstate it. It was just absurd. [Citizens] never should have done that, he said.

Workshop tonight for bones, tarponAlready protected by strict catch rules, renowned sportfishing species tarpon and bonefish could get more safeguards under a new state proposal. This is a plan that basically would move bonefish and tarpon closer to an all catch-and-release fishery, said Amanda Nalley, spokeswoman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The state regulatory agency holds an open 6 p.m. workshop tonight at Key Colony Beach City Hall, off mile marker 53.5, to hear comments on the draft plan.Bonefish have been an all catch-and-release fish since 2011. Under a special exemption granted to some approved weight-fish tournaments, anglers and guides must bring a live bonefish back to the dock for official weighing.The bonefish must be transported in a water-filled live well, and be released after weighing at the dock. However, bonefish occasionally die en route or during handling. The proposed rule change would end that tournament exemption and require that all bonefish be released at the boat. Fish could be taken from the water for photographing and weighing on the boat but not transported.Im all for a no-killing rule but I dont want them to put us out of business, either, Islamorada flats guide Rusty Albury said Tuesday.If they wont let us bring in a fish for a weight tourna-Mandatory catch,release is consideredKEYS FISHINGBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org mph lands driver in jailAHomestead man learned Saturday night that topping 125 mph on U.S. 1 in the Keys while allegedly driving drunk with three kids in the car will get you jailed on $411,000 bond. Thats what police said Robert Rioseco, 46, did. Agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin said Deputy Edgar Pineiro was at mile marker 7 when Rioseco, driving a maroon Mitsubishi, sped by him at 87 mph in a 55 mph zone. Pineiro used his radar to monitor the cars speed as he called for deputies south of him to watch for it. As he did so, he saw the cars speed increase to 127 mph, Herrin said. Sgt. Geni Hernandez stopped Rioseco at mile marker 5.5 on Stock Island, and there were three children under 18 in the car. Hernandez also found that Rioseco was impaired, smelling of alcohol while acting extremely erratic. Rioseco was arrested and taken to jail. There, he loudly refused to participate in sobriety tests, Herrin said. Rioseco was charged with reckless driving, three counts of driving under the influence with someone under age 18 in the car, refusing to submit to a DUI test and three counts cruelty toward a child. The children were turned over to their mother.Cops:Rioseco was impaired behind wheelCRIME FRONTRoberts hanging up his collarBy all accounts, Donald Roberts, pastor at Martin Luther Chapel in Marathon and the Monroe County Sheriffs Office chaplain, would rather slip quietly into retirement next month than be honored for his many accomplishments. But thats not going to happen. The 67-year-old has spent 21 years, along with his right hand, wife Paula, at the helm of the Lutheran congregation. Hell don the clerical collar for the last time on June 30.The church about 70 members full-time, twice that in season is hosting a farewell gathering Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Martin Luther Chapel Fellowship Hall at 325 122nd St. bayside.I figured if I got in 25 years [as a pastor], it would be good. Im a couple past that and its just time to retire, Roberts said. It wasnt until age 40 that Roberts decided on religion as a career path, but hes spent a lifetime helping people in various capacities. Roberts was born in Louisville, Ky., but his parents were living in Key West at the time. His father was in the U.S. Navy stationed at the end of World War II in 1945 and 1946.

Joe Garcia, who represents the Keys, says taxes should be paid on privately owned military housing in Key West. In 2007, the U.S. Navy transferred ownership of 890 military family houses to United Kingdom-based Balfour Beatty Communities subsidiary Southeast Housing LLC. Last year then-Monroe County Property Appraiser Karl Borglum decided private ownership means the houses are subject to local taxation and filed an $11.5 million lien, including penalties and interest. Apair of bills is working through the state House and Senate that, if approved, would erase the lien and codify a tax exemption. The taxpayers of Monroe County deserve better, Garcia said Tuesday. Why can a foreign company hire Tallahassee lobbyists and get special treatment and pay no taxes? Thats wrong and that is why I am involved. Tuesday, Garcias office was drafting a letter making its case to U.S. Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus. I will make our case to the Navy, write the governor and the legislators, Garcia said. We need to shine a big, bright light on this. I will do my part to keep the pressure up and get them to pay their fair share. Last week, Keys state Rep. Holly Raschein presented an unsuccessful amendment to House Bill 531 that would limit the tax exemption to military houses occupied by active-duty or civilian defense workers, but apply taxes to units rented to non-military. The affected housing in Key West is on Peary Court, Trumbo Annex, Sigsbee Park, Truman Annex and the Branch Medical Clinic on South Roosevelt Boulevard. At a hearing Monday, an attorney for the Property Appraisers Office asked Circuit Court Judge David Audlin to enforce the $11.5 million tax lien. Property Appraiser Scott Russell said Audlin gave both sides 20 days to come back with detailed arguments, then 10 more days to issue counter-arguments. Were waiting, he said. We still feel like our case is very secure.Congressman: Firm must pay fair shareBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMILITARYPorter mum on replacementsKeys schools chief Mark Porter is playing the hiring of three top School District executives close to the vest but said he would make temporary hiring recommendations to the School Board at an April 9 meeting.Last month, Porter notified Finance Director Ken Gentile, Operations Director Michael Kinneer and Human Resources Director Cheryl Allen that their contracts would not be renewed.Kinneer is out on Friday, followed on April 18 by Gentile and Allen on June 30.Porter wants to hire temporary staff, for no more than four months as a stopgap, while conducting a formal solicitation and search for full-timers. Porter said Monday that he had engaged in informal conversations with prospective administrators but wouldnt offer names.Most of what Ive been doing is kind of what you would call networking, he said. There arent any position posting or anything like that. Ive got some offerings out that people are considering. Im not hiding anything.He said its premature to identify any candidates. In some cases, Im impressed with the qualifications of the individuals Ive been able to connect with and am confident I can make some strong recommendations to the board, Porter said. The School Board meets next on April 9 beginning at 3 p.m. at Marathon High School.Porter said temporary staff would likely be paid on a daily rate consistent with the previous salary levels.Gentile earns $126,000 per year, Kinneer $120,000 and Allen around $95,000.As soon as we have the interim people in place, Porter said, we will initiate a more traditional posting, screening, selecting process.School Board member John Dick said he expects Porter to cast a wide net. I expect to be advertising throughout Florida at least for the finance person, Dick said. I do believe at this point you really want to have somebody that has Florida finance and school district experience. We cant really go in and start teaching somebody else all about it.Dick said he isnt aware of who Porter had been meeting with for the temp jobs.Stuart Kessler, a member of the districts Audit and Finance Committee and unsuccessful candidate for Monroe County clerk, cast his lot in a meeting with Porter.Kessler couldnt be reached for comment Tuesday, as he was taking part in an all-day district session meant to evaluate change orders associated with the $39 million Horace OBryant Middle School reconstruction and expansion in Key West.3 to be hired, replace Gentile, Allen,KinneerBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSCops: Man slashes familyACalifornia man remained in jail on Tuesday in lieu of $25,000 bond, charged with stabbing three family members Saturday night on Plantation Key. Law enforcement said its unclear what led Jacob Knapper, 20, of Agoura Hills, Calif., to slash his family but apparently it grew out of words he spoke.Spokeswoman Becky Herrin said that when Deputy Joshua Brady arrived at the house on Galleon Road at 9:45 p.m., he found Knappers mother and aunt with wounds on their arms, and his uncle with a stab wound to the stomach. Blood was all over the floor of the living room, she said.After the uncle told Brady Knapper was in another room, Knapper ran out of that room, yelling for the deputy to shoot him, Herrin said. Instead, Brady grabbed him and held him until backup arrived. Knapper was then handcuffed. Herrin said Knappers aunt reported that Knapper called a friend of hers a nasty name in front of the friends children and that a confrontation ensued, with the uncle telling Knapper not to talk like that in front of children. Knapper reportedly told him he could talk any way he wanted, then grabbed a knife and stabbed the uncle and aunt. However, his mother said the uncle yelled at his daughter and Knapper told him to stop. She said the uncle told Knapper to leave and, while she and Knapper were packing, the uncle and aunt came into the room. The mother said Knapper felt threatened and grabbed the knife to protect her, and thats when he swung the knife multiple times. The uncle was treated at Mariners Hospital. Knapper was charged with three counts of aggravated battery and one of resisting arrest.Conflicting reports on what happenedCRIME FRONTBozarth murder trial delayedMore than a year after her arrest on a first-degree murder charge, Denise Bozarth remains in the Monroe County jail, now awaiting a July trial. Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia agreed at a Tuesday hearing at the Plantation Key Government Center to move Bozarths April 15 trial date back three months. Were up on a year now, Garcia told attorneys. Some depositions sought by Bozarths attorney, Jerome Gilhooley from the Monroe County Public Defenders Office, have not been taken. Were all working to complete discovery, State Attorney Catherine Vogel said. I know [the public defenders office] has been doing everything they can. Bozarth, 40, did not appear in court Tuesday.She is charged with the 2007 slaying of husband Edward Bozarth, 62, aboard the familys houseboat, the Screw U 2 docked at Gilberts Marina of Key Largo.Denise Bozarth moved off the houseboat and out of the county about a week before Edward Bozarths badly decomposed body, stuffed into a canvas sack and concealed in the engine compartment, was discovered. The medical examiner ruled he had been bludgeoned to death. Detectives with the Sheriffs Office always suspected Denise Bozarth but lacked enough evidence until a warrant was obtained in March 2012. Acquaintances told detectives that Denise had talked of killing her husband and reportedly tried to hire a former boyfriend to do it.She told friends she expected to receive $650,000 that her husband had inherited from his mother, according to Detective Jason Madnicks arrest affidavit.IN THE COURTS KNAPPER BOZARTHBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgMan shoots out womans car windowKey West police responded in full force to a New Town home on Sunday after an apparent domestic dispute escalated into a gunshot, then a brief standoff with suspect James Bogoeff. Bogoeff, 32, was arrested after his father, James Bogoeff Sr., entered the home and brought out his son despite police telling him to stay back. Boegoff Jr. is charged with misdemeanor firing a weapon in public and criminal mischief, both misdemeanors; and shooting a vehicle, resisting arrest and tampering with evidence, all felonies. Hes being held at the Monroe County Detention Center without bond. Boegoffs girlfriend, Jessica Stockton, called police from the Staples Street home around 4 a.m. She was in her 2010 Nissan leaving when the rear drivers side window shattered. Stockton told Officer Anna Dykes she thought [Bogoeff] had thrown a rock at her car, according to reports. Upon closer examination of the window casing, police found bullet shards, apparently from a .40-caliber Glock handgun. Not knowing what they were dealing with, police set up a perimeter around the house. Thats when Officer Robert Currul was approached by the older Boegoff. He recognized me from past contacts and asked if he could go into the house to retrieve his son, Currul wrote in a report. I told him he could not enter. He did not listen to those orders. Several minutes later James Sr. escorted James Jr. from inside of the house. Asearch of the home following the arrest revealed 10 guns including the Glock and an AK-47, along with various types of ammunition, holsters and other weapon accessories.Weapons cache later found inside houseCRIME FRONT BOGOEFFKeynoter Staff ROADSIDE CLEANUP Six members of U.S.Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 13-2 of Marathon cleaned three miles of U.S.1 in a recent effort to prevent trash from getting into the water.Ten large bags of trash were filled with assorted car and motorcycle parts,wire cable,clothing,light bulbs,plastic,Styrofoam and the like.Here,Bob Hires,Don Weston, John Mattern and Tom Wiebbecke show some of the trash.Tim OConnell and Dottie Mattern helped.
tion, but a Kentuckian by birth, he jokes. Robertsfather went to law school and worked for a financial organization that moved the family all over the South growing up. Hes spent time in Kentucky, Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia and, finally, Fort Myers, on Floridas southwest coast. Roberts attended the University of Florida, enlisted in the U.S. Army and eventually earned a masters degree in rehabilitation counseling. I ended up at Fort Sam Houston [in Texas] during the latter days of the Vietnam War, in the burn ward working with rehab patients, he said. I did group counseling with the burn patients and their families.Roberts later went into private practice as a family counselor before deciding at age 36 to attend the fouryear divinity program at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis. I finally decided the ministry was what I should be doing, he said.Roberts dove in head first after graduation, taking on an associate pastor position at the 1,000-member St. John Lutheran in Ocala. There was a grade school and high school on the roughly 30-acre church property.The senior pastor for 30 years left and I ended up being the senior pastor there for four years, he said. All the while, Roberts said he kept a close eye on positions opening up in the Keys. But you dont just apply for open spots in the Lutheran church you must be nominated and accept a call for service. You dont know youre on the list before they make the call, he said.As fate or Gods will would have it, Roberts received and accepted the call from Martin Luther Chapel in the summer of 1993. He was also on lists in Arizona and Hawaii, he said.We believe that Gods spirit directs people to the right person for the position, he said.Ahumble and quiet man, Roberts has made the most of his time here in the Keys. In the mid-1990s, Roberts accepted the position as Sheriffs Office chaplain. Hes held the unpaid job for more than 15 years.Roberts presides over some ceremonies, but his main work was to counsel deputies and jail inmates in need of spiritual guidance. He took a hands-on approach to the job, taking part in ridealongs and spending five years as a TraumaStar air ambulance flight medic. Sheriff Rick Ramsay has known Roberts for years and said hes always been solid and reliable. Hes done a lot in the jail programs to help reduce recidivism rates. Were happy for him to move on to another part of his life, but its a sad day for us, he said. Roberts helped start, and has remained involved with, Keys Area Interdenominational Resources in 1998. The Middle Keys nonprofit provides food and other assistance to residents in need. KAIR Director Marje Roberts no relation has worked with Roberts for years. She says the chapel contributes money and that Roberts encourages individuals to volunteer or donate funds, as well. Hes just a very kind and quiet man; hell be very missed by a lot of people in town.... He never brags or toots his own horn, Marje Roberts said. As for his main job guiding the Martin Luther congregation, Roberts said he relies heavily on Paula. Shes been a teacher and principal at the churchs now-closed school, as well as choir director, organist and pianist over 20 years. I told them [before I came] youre getting a team ministry. I got the degree, but a lot of the work was done by her, Roberts said. Without her, this ministry would not be what it is. Thats not to say Paula does it all on her own. Longtime church member David Mueller said Roberts is great pastor and a patient person. Mueller is the Lutheran pastor who founded the Martin Luther Chapel in 1964. He rejoined the church after retiring in 1999. The congregation really loves him and depends on him for the kind of spiritual care that he provides. Hes a real pastor to many people, Mueller said.Don and Paula are in the process of moving to a home they purchased in Leesburg, near Orlando. He said hell enjoy being close to his children and grandchildren, as well as making the occasional bass fishing trip to Minnesota.The Saturday reception will be held from 2 to 3 p.m., with dinner following from 3 to 5. Mayor Craig Cates said a plan to move the citys homeless shelter to a new location while expanding services to a 24-7 operation is progressing quickly behind the scenes. Cates has made homeless-related issues the centerpiece of his two elected terms in office beginning in October 2009. His next goal is to move the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter from county-owned property at the Monroe County Sheriffs Office on Stock Island down College Road to city-owned property, formerly the site of Easter Seals. At the same time, Cates wants to alter the mission of KOTS from a sunset-to-sunrise operation into a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week comprehensive service center providing food, counseling, limited medical help and other amenities. You might not be able to tell it, but were moving forward, Cates said Tuesday. He said before the shelter moves, the city would require itself to get a conditional-use permit for the public service zoning designation, assuring that residents would have multiple opportunities for public input.Anything like a homeless shelter would have to go through the conditional-use process and all the citizens could give their input, he said.Cates said city staff has issued a task order to St. Petersburg-based Hayes Cummings Architects to come up with a design, construction plan and price tag for the proposed center.Im still working with the county to help fund it, Cates said, explaining that although the countys homeless are concentrated in Key West, the problem is Keyswide.He was encouraged that in recent years, the number of homeless has dropped from a 2002 high of 2,151 in Monroe County to the 2011 figure of about 500, with some 246 in Key West, according to data compiled by the Southernmost Homeless Assistance League. Cates attributed the decrease to tougher ordinances that restrict camping in vehicles and public parks, drinking in public and panhandling.The good news is that the count is down thanks to our stricter ordinances. The next step is to give help to the ones that want it, he said.The Southernmost Homeless Assistance League manages KOTS for the city through an annual budget appropriation of about $450,000.Tuesday, the Key West City Commission was set to extend SHALs management lease, which expires Sept. 1, on a month-to-month basis. That vote took place after press time but was expected to pass.Commissioner Tony Yaniz said that providing services, while well intentioned, is treating the symptom. As a nation, weve got to talk about mental health.

Maybe we can find some sort of compromise. Marathon guide Diego Cordova said a ban on taking bonefish to a dock for tournaments wouldnt bother me a bit. I really dont see any reason to bring them in, Cordova said. Theres been a decline in the bonefish population since the [January 2010] cold. Now were actually starting to see more bonefish and its nice to have them around.Astudy by University of Miami researchers indicates that a living Florida Keys bonefish is worth about $3,500 annually to the sportfishing and tourism economy potentially $75,000 over the life of the fish.To harvest a tarpon, anglers must have a prepurchased $50 tarpon tag aboard the boat when the fish is taken. Current law allows a daily bag limit of two tarpon. Arule change would ban the harvest of tarpon unless the angler holds a tarpon tag and is in pursuit of an IGFArecord.The International Game Fish Association generally requires a fish to be weighed at an approved scale before it can be considered for world-record status. Few tarpon now are harvested in Keys waters, but a controversial tournament series in Boca Grande in Southwest Florida requires that tarpon be brought to scales for weighing and videotaping. All fish are released but many do not survive. The Save the Tarpon group was founded to campaign against the televised tournaments practices. Nalley said that during a Monday workshop in St. Petersburg, some anglers maintained that since tarpon numbers appear to be healthy, there is no reason to tighten regulations. Tarpon is one of those species that people on both sides feel passionate about, she said. FWC staff started working on rule changes for tarpon and bonefish after a plan to create special game fish and sport fish categories was dropped because of opposition. Board Chairman Kenneth Wright and other commissioners then directed staff to focus on tarpon and bonefish. The tarpon and bonefish rule changes are scheduled to reach the FWC board at its April 17 meeting in Tallahassee. An online webinar and call-in workshop will be held at 6 p.m. April 8.

The loss of more than $1 million in Older Americans Act funding in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties reduces the ability of lower-income older people to receive a nutritious meal each day. This means that 818 elders will lose meals at congregate meal sites such as the Little Havana Activities and Nutrition Centers, Miami-Dade and Monroe County-administered centers, Catholic Charities, Jewish Community Services and others. In addition, another 191 frail, homebound elders will lose Meals-on-Wheels, this year thereby increasing the risk that they will end up in a nursing home. This equals a total of 142,000 fewer meals in our community for more than 1,000 people in need. Funding for supportive services, such as transportation and homemaker and personal care, as well as care-giver support, will be reduced by another $200,000. The human impact of these reductions is being experienced throughout Florida and the United States. Elected officials must re-address the federal budget in more creative ways that do not harm older people who want to remain at home and the community. Max B. Rothman, president Alliance for Aging MiamiGastesi not blamelessAs a former law enforcement officer, it continues to amaze me that County Administrator Roman Gastesi has not been fired, indicted or arrested for his part in the iPad and iPhone theft scandal. He is at the very least guilty of receiving stolen property. I guess it must be extenuating circumstances, as the say, why the countys former Technical Services director might go to jail. Then the boss gets a slap on the wrist, a formal reprimand by the county commissioners. When are we going to get real with this whole situation?

Great teachers have a passion for reaching every one of their students, and Ive seen them try over and over again, sometimes using different teaching techniques to get through to struggling kids.For teachers, the fundamental goal is the education of every student regardless of the circumstances. At the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, we share a similar passion. We view any violation of environmental rules, and the environmental damage that can often occur as a result, failure. This is why we work diligently to prevent these violations from ever occurring in the first place. Make no mistake: When a failure has occurred, we believe that firm environmental action, including the assessment of financial penalties, may be needed to reduce the likelihood of a future violation. However, to measure the efforts of our staff only by the number and magnitude of the penalties collected as a result of these failures is frustrating to us.To continue to do so, year after year, without any apparent attempt to measure the results of our efforts shows a serious lack of understanding of our jobs and the fundamental goals of this agency.If you really want to know how good a job were doing, the first question to consider is our compliance rate. This would be like looking at the graduation rate or average standardized testing score of a school. Its how you tell an A school from a C school. This incredibly important question is constantly overlooked, and it certainly hasnt been reported to the public. In Florida, our long-term compliance rate has typically been between 85 and 90 percent. Thats the rate of inspections that revealed no violations, or only minor violations that caused no harm to the environment, such as a paperwork problem or a late monitoring report. Those numbers are above the national average, but as with a passionate educator, our incredible employees want to improve that rate.When DEPSecretary Herschel Vinyard and I came on board, increasing the compliance rate was an issue we explored right away. We learned that some of our regional offices were using a slightly different approach with regulated facilities and this approach was resulting in higher compliance rates.They were placing a greater emphasis on education and outreach, spending more time out in the community and participating in activities that went beyond conducting formal inspections. They sought out and cultivated positive relationships with regulated facilities, with the goal of achieving better compliance. Like teachers who stay after school to work with a child to improve their classroom performance, we had department staff going the extra mile to improve the environmental performance of regulated facilities. Since this approach was proven to enhance environmental compliance, we sought to expand it to the rest of the state in 2012. Last year, our education and outreach efforts reached tens of thousands of people and businesses through free training on our regulations and how to comply with them.For example, the South District has emphasized the implementation of the departments Small Business Assistance Program, and has enrolled more than 60 small and medium-sized businesses into the application process. This program encourages start-up environmental businesses to conduct their work with the state, and provides extra support and marketing for emerging local environmental stakeholders.The response was remarkable, and the results speak for themselves. Our significant compliance rate last year improved from 90 to 94 percent. Put another way, only 6 percent of facilities inspected revealed major violations of our regulations or were causing some kind of environmental harm, compared with 10 to 15 percent historically. Weve never before come close to that kind of performance.Now that you have a better understanding of what is really important at the department, you can understand why I am very proud of our regulatory staff. Please understand that there isnt one employee at the department who isnt striving to improve the environment.The thousands of committed employees at the department are using sound science and are being encouraged to continue innovating in order to achieve even higher compliance rates in the future. That is the standard by which we want to be judged. Jeff Littlejohn is deputy secretary of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.State says Keys are pitifully low; businesses have to become part of the solution, not stand backMonroe County is proud to announce a total recycling rate of 26 percent for calendar year 2011. That announcement, made Monday by the countys Public Works director, is not cause for celebration. Monroe County continues to lag behind the rest of the state when it comes to recycling. Alachua County, home to the University of Florida, manages a 50 percent recycling rate in the latest figures reported by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Collier County, which includes the city of Naples, scored 40 percent on the latest recycling report. Statewide, Florida expects to reach a recycling goal of 75 percent by 2020. That means Keys residences and businesses will have to triple current levels of recycling to make that goal. Kevin Wilson, Monroes Public Works director, properly points out that even though Monroe has made small gains, the real improvement needs to come from businesses. Only 23 percent of commercial businesses in the Keys participate in scheduled recycling collection programs, according to the DEP. In Broward County, by contrast, that figure stands at 100 percent.Here in the Keys, where the number of empty beer cans and glass bottles per capita ranks among the highest in Florida, Monroes recycling performance lags far behind.Aluminum cans, with a ready market and actual profits for recycling, are a good indicator of how well were doing. In the Keys, aluminum cans recycled went from 5 percent in 2007 to 8 percent in 2011, the latest statewide figures released by DEP. Thats pitiful. We did better on plastic bottles, with recycling rates climbing from 14 percent in 2007 to 39 percent in 2011. Thats good. Steel cans (lots of beer is still sold in that container, especially here in the Keys) went from 6 percent in 2007 to 9 percent in 2011. Again, pitiful. Glass, which should be a no-brainer for recycling, actually dropped from 10 percent recycled in 2007 to 3 percent in 2011. Unacceptable. Clearly, for Monroe County to improve on recycling, bars and restaurants that account for so much of the cans and bottles consumed here need to be engaged.Thats the same message from the state: Statewide, Florida has maintained a 30 percent recycling rate for a second consecutive years, according to Jorge Caspary, director of DEPs Division of Waste Management. However, Florida businesses must become more involved in recycling in order for us to achieve success.Theres the challenge, Keys businesses.

The City Council on March 26 approved the use of Sombrero Beach for the fifth annual daylong event, scheduled for May 11. It also allowed beer, wine and food vending for the event.Former event director Karen Bowers was denied Monroe County Tourist Development Council funding for the Marathon event, so she tried a move to Key West. She announced in February the event was cancelled due to the U.S. Navy closing Truman Harbor to non-federal and non-government boat traffic.Navy spokeswoman Trice Denny issued a response the same day stating the Navy never denied the event and that it was working with the city as recently as December to put it on. Denny said the only caveat was that event planners be aware that operational requirements in the harbor could take precedence over any special event like the races. For example, if a ship or diving unit had to come in on short notice.Apparently, Bowers never went to the Key West City Commission looking for support, and shes since left the Keys. High Five Dragon Boat LLC is taking over the races.High Five Marketing Director Christine Canevari said while the company is new, several employees have worked the Marathon event in the past. We dont want to see this go away and after a couple weeks of chatting, we decided to get it up and running, she said. Were taking a risk, but the dragon boat community really likes coming to Marathon. Canevari said this years event might be smaller than in years past due to the late move to Marathon, but that five local teams and eight to 10 teams outside the Keys are expected to race.

Details of the incident were sketchy Tuesday afternoon, but Principal David Murphy said the two deputies assigned to protect the high school, known as school resource officers, received word from a teacher that a male student may have brought a gun to school. Murphy said the teacher was likely told of the possibly armed student by classmates. The deputies removed the student from a classroom after getting the tip and searched his backpack and locker. No gun was found, said Deputy Becky Herrin, Sheriffs Office spokeswoman. The boy denied bringing a weapon to school, Herrin and Murphy said. The entire incident lasted less than five minutes, Herrin said, and the school was not put on lockdown. Before any other deputies could arrive, it was all over, Herrin said in an e-mail. SROs handled it all. But deputies were prepared for the worst and raced to the Plantation Key school. The false alarm comes a little more than a week after the Sheriffs Office conducted mock shooting exercises at schools countywide in hopes deputiestraining could help prevent tragedies like Decembers Newtown, Conn., school massacre. When it was phoned in and the police heard gun and school,the response by law enforcement was heavy and on edge, Murphy said. Its good to know they respond in that way. Herrin said three deputies arrived at the school almost immediately after they received the report at 11 a.m. More units were en route, Herrin said. Five other deputies arrived after the emergency call was cancelled at 11:05 a.m., she said. Murphy said the student at the center of the incident is not a troublemaker, nor have there been any reports that he was the target of bullying. We will be doing a follow up investigation into where the information came from, Herrin said.No weapon discovered at Coral ShoresBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comUPPER KEYS Only 23 percent of commercial businesses in the Keys participate in scheduled collection programs, according to the DEP.
Wednesday,April 3,2013 5A Keynoter KeysNet.com BusinessGroup to review cruise bill of rightsApush for a bill of rights for cruise ship passengers has caught the attention of the industrys main trade group.Sen. Charles Schumer (DN.Y.) has proposed that the industry voluntarily adopt a set of guarantees based on the airline passenger bill of rights, which has already gone into effect. He called for the action in response to a string of horrifying and dangerous incidents aboard international cruise ships, according to a statement, which also includes a copy of a letter Schumer wrote to the Cruise Lines International Association and the International Maritime Organization.Schumers statement invokes the February fire and loss of power aboard the Carnival Triumph as well as a similar incident aboard the Carnival Splendor in 2010. It also mentions mechanical or technical issues that struck the Carnival Dream Legend and Elation last month. Carnival is conducting a review of its fleet and has already announced planned upgrades to Triumph and another ship being overhauled, Carnival Sunshine .The proposal includes giving customers the right to disembark a docked ship if basic provisions cannot be provided; a full refund if a trip is abruptly canceled because of mechanical problems; onboard professional medical attention in case of a health emergency; current information about changes to travel plans because of a mechanical issue or emergency; a crew that is trained in emergency and evacuation procedures; and backup power in case a generator fails.In a response, the Cruise Lines International Association said the group looks forward to reviewing Schumers proposal.The safety and comfort of passengers are the cruise industrys top priorities and are fundamental to our business, CLIAsaid in a statement. While the industry must adhere to strict international and national regulations, wherever and whenever our ships operate, we also continuously strive through industry-initiated policies and ongoing reviews to improve upon our practices to help ensure the best vacation experience for all or our guests.Schumer is urging the industry to adopt the measures for now and calling an international investigation of oversight and enforcement in countries where cruise ships are flagged.Action comes after several Carnival woesBy HANNAH SAMPSONhsampson@MiamiHerald.comTOURISMThe Carnival Triumphhad a Feb.10 engine fire that left the ship stranded in the Gulf of Mexico with more than 4,000 passengers aboard for five days.

Inc. can continue using the Cohiba trademark on its cigars in the U.S. The ruling is the latest in the nearly 16-year-old legal battle with Cubas state-run cigar company over the signature Cuban cigar brand. The Richmond, Va.,based subsidiary of Swedish Match AB said Thursday that the U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board dismissed Cubatabacos petition asking it to cancel the companys trademark. The panel ruled that because courts have held Cubatabaco cant sell its cigars in the U.S, it has no standing to challenge the Cohiba trademark in the country. General Cigar says it has sold its Dominican Cohiba cigar in the U.S. since the early 1980s. It received its first registration of the Cohiba trademark in the U.S. in 1981.

Conchs sweep Flanagan HighKey West Highs softball team appeared to be on its way to an easy sweep of Saturdays morning-afternoon doubleheader at the Back Yard until Flanagan rallied for two runs in the fifth inning of the second game to cut the Conchslead to 4-3. But the home team had Brooke Wood, called up from the junior varsity, so there was nothing to worry about. Wood found herself at the plate in the sixth with runners at second and third. She cracked a line drive foul down the left-field line, then did it again, causing the Flanagan left fielder to complain about having to chase down the balls.Two more fouls followed, one pulled way left, one hit into the backstop. Then Wood, like a seasoned veteran, went to the opposite field, lining a single to right to score the two runs and make it 6-3.I was thinking that I had to hit the ball the best I can, Wood said, after the Conchs went on to a 7-5 victory.Assistant coach Bubba Osterhoudt, who coaches the JVteam, couldnt have been more pleased, saying of Wood, Shes turned her batting around 100 percent thats why I put her at the five spot as the designated hitter. Shes a dedicated young girl.As for playing on the varsity, Wood smiled and said, Its different, its a higher lever, but its fun. Key West won the second game behind the pitching of Jewls Castillo after winning the opener, 7-2, with Desirae Laguna allowing only two hits over the last four innings. The Conchs, down 2-0 in the opener, scored six runs in the fourth inning on three hits, the last of which was a two-run triple by Selyne Casas. Flanagan made two errors in the inning. In the second game, the Conchs scored three runs in the third to take a 4-0 lead. Two runs scored when Raquel Schoneck, bounced a hit to left field and toured the bases when the ball got loose in left field. Lauren Schoneck followed with a single and later came home on a double by Devin Osterhoudt. It was the third consecutive victory for the Conchs, who improved to 7-9. They will play Gulliver Prep at 4 today in Miami.Wood slams game winner for 6-3 winBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST SOFTBALL Sails starting to flourishIts no April fools joke: The sailfish have begun to arrive.Theres a reason the World Sailfish Championship takes place in Key West each April. This is the month the sails pour through the Florida Straits for their annual spawn.Youll find them offshore of the reef deeper than at any other time of the year. You may see a few strays as shallow as 20 to 30 feet, but the vast majority is traveling in the 120to 200-foot depths.Along their journey, they are eager to eat. Theyre typically not overly fussy as to which baits they will take, but their favorites are ballyhoo, pilchards, cigar minnows and goggle eyes. Further offshore, the dolphin are a bit more prevalent. Weve had reports of fish anywhere from 300 to 1,000 feet. This early in the dolphin season, you need to cover a lot of water to get into the fish, so running and gunning, rather than trolling, is the more productive strategy.Rigged ballyhoo are the staple, but live baits such as pinfish or pilchards will help to entice the more finicky eaters.There have also been reports of nice-size blackfin tuna fish in the 15to 20pound class taken at the humps. Most of the larger fish, again, are taken on live baits such as pilchards.On the reef, the yellowtail snapper bite remains steady, with an increase in larger size fish. Head to the 80to 90-foot depths to find the flags. Staying in 40 to 60 feet of water, you will add large mangroves to your yellowtail catches.The weeks bestCapt. Diego Cordova of Flat Out Sportfishing in Marathon reports more life on the flats with the warmer weather. He guided 18 yearold Jim Fullerton to a 130pound tarpon release after a 50-minute battle. Capt. Jeff Knapp of Beckoning Charters in Marathon has also had a consistent tarpon bite at the Seven Mile Bridge, with fish around the 80-pound mark. Blue Magic Charters out of Keys Fisheries in Marathon, with Capt. Larry Bell and mate Alex Bell, fished regulars Bob Weiner and Nick Allen from Latrobe, Pa., who caught a nice mess of yellowtails. Fishing on the charter boats out of Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway in Marathon, Capt. Howard Kelley has also been putting groups on the yellowtails.

If youre a baseball fan opening night was Sunday looking to add a new pastime to your vacation itinerary, consider setting a goal to visit all 30 of the sports Major League stadiums. I began my crusade about five years ago, joining a growing number of other zealots making the pilgrimage to baseballs cathedrals. It has become such a popular pursuit that you can buy baseball-stadium maps to document where you have been and plot where you still need to go. The one decorating my den shows Im halfway through my odyssey, with 14 more fields of dreams still to be seen. If you need more memorabilia, theres also a book called The Major League Baseball Ball Park PassPort that provides tips about each stadium, with slots to file ticket stubs and a place to validate each visit with a rubber stamp. But all you really need is a love of baseball and a passion for exploring new places to relish this journey. All the baseball teams are based in cities with engrossing things to do and savory places to eat when you arent attending a game. These attractions should help the cause of fans trying to recruit a spouse or other traveling teammates who may not appreciate the pleasures of the game. My tour already has introduced me to things that wouldnt have been on my radar if I hadnt booked a trip to see a stadium.When I went to St. Louis to visit Busch Stadium in 2010, I rented a car one day and made the two-hour drive to Samuel Clemenschildhood home in Hannibal, the Mississippi River village that inspired Mark Twains best-known books about the childhood adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.The Hannibal visit had a ripple effect when I went to Boston to see Fenway Park, prompting me to rent another car to drive to Hartford, Conn., to visit the custombuilt home where he spent the happiest and most productive years of his adult life. When I went to Baltimore to see a game at Camden Yards, I took a water taxi out to Fort McHenry in the Chesapeake Bay to tour the site where Francis Scott Key watched American troops in 1814 thwart an all-night fusillade by English ships. Many of the stadiums are landmarks in their own right. My favorite stops so far have been baseballs oldest stadiums, Fenway Park (opened in 1912), and Wrigley Field (originally known as Weeghman Park when it opened in 1914) in Chicago. Both are located in wonderful neighborhoods that turn into street festivals during the three or four hours leading up to the game. The stadiums of more recent vintage all have their merits, too, largely because so many were built to evoke a sense of nostalgia. This retro movement started in 1992 when Baltimores Camden Yards opened. When drawing up your travel plans, strive to arrange your stadium visits so they coincide with your favorite teams trips to the same destinations. My favorite stadium sojourns so far have included my favorite team, the Oakland Athletics. Those trips gave me a chance to wear my greenand-gold Athleticsgear in hostile territory, which has led to lively repartee with the fans of the local team. Try to get tickets behind your teams dugout on the road. When I finally cross the final big-stadium off my list in a few years, I am going to have to find a new quest. Well, I hear there are lots of quaint minor-league baseball stadiums located in rustic towns all across America....Scholarships are availableIf its April, it means its scholarship season in the Keys in which graduating high-school seniors can apply to various organizations for financial help with college.

With the housing recovery gaining steam, Americans have more incentives to paint up, touch up and otherwise redecorate their homes. But theres no need to spend willy-nilly. From finding treasures on eBay.com to taking advantage of new offerings at department stores and discounters, there are plenty of ways to make your home more stylish on the cheap.Theres no excuse for an undecorated home on any budget, said Candace Corlett, president of WSLStrategic Retail, a retail consultancy. Home has as much retail selection as fashion. And you can get a lot of buys.Wal-Mart, the worlds largest retailer, has expanded this year its assortment of window treatments like blinds, and is also bolstering offerings on rugs, decorative pillows, bathroom accessories and patio furniture. Under the discounters Better Homes & Gardens brand, decorative pillows range from $11.97 to $13.97. Meanwhile, Target, known for its cheap chic home designs, has launched a full line for the new store brand called Threshold, which offers a variety of goods from dinnerware sets to sheets and towels. And J.C Penney Co. is counting on a newly revamped home area that opens April 5 that houses new brands like Jonathan Adler, Sir Terence Conran, and Bodum. Michael Graves, who ended his 13-year partnership with Target last year and is known for his stylish tea kettles, is also joining Penney this spring. Here are six tips for decorating your home:Do your homework. First, create a budget and search around to get inspiration. To get ideas, attend open houses to see how other people are decorating their homes. You can also find how-to videos and decorating blogs on such sites as HSN, HomeGoods, Lowes and Home Depot. There are fewer home decor magazines than there used to be. But you can always flip through catalogs from stores such as Ballard Designs to get some tips. Also, experts encourage you to do broad searches on the Web. eBay just launched a new technology called Feed that allows you to personalize your searches based on your style, like mod 1960s.Its all about getting unexpected things, said Chris Benz, an American fashion designer who is collaborating with eBay on various fashion collections. He said he has furnished his apartment and office with eclectic eBay finds like vintage Italian turquoise pottery pieces.Pick and choose. Study your space and figure out what pieces of furniture youll be using more. So if you spend a lot of time in your living room, you may want to spend more on a sofa and an entertainment center that would house your flatscreen TVand books. Its like investing in good shoes or a handbag, said Pallavi Naidu, vice president of merchandising and product development at Atlantabased Ballard Designs. Spending more on items that get lots of use means they will last longer and give you more satisfaction.Improvise. You dont need the real thing. If you dont have money to spend on a granite backsplash for your kitchen, turn to peel-and-stick wall tiles. Not sure if you want to invest in a carpet? An area rug could cost less and accomplish the same thing.Repurpose pieces. Shop in flea markets and even your mothers attic to find pieces that could be reinvented as useful home decor items. And think beyond the original purpose: WSLs Corlett said that old sewing machines or leather-trimmed luggage can be used as tables.Check out financial deals.If youre strapped and need to stagger payments, instead of charging all at once on your credit card, check out financing deals from various retailers.Most furniture stores have some kind of interest-free financing deal going most of the time. Just remember to keep up with the monthly payments or else you will wind up paying heavy-duty interest and sometimes extra fees.When in doubt, paint.Often, just a fresh coat of paint will make all the difference in a room. Painting is one of the affordable ways to change the decor, Corlett said.

First, I resent the fact that if I want my meat browned and therefore flavorful I must sear it in another pan before adding it to the slow cooker. And yes, I know that a small number of (typically very expensive) slow cookers do have the ability to sear meat. But the reality is, most of us dont own those. To me, much of the convenience of a slow cooker is the ability to do everything in one pot. If I cant, its a lot less convenient. Second, I distrust how evenly they heat. While there are some dishes for which uneven heating and even a bit of overheating isnt a major deal (Im talking to you, chili), most meals arent that forgiving. I have rendered far too many recipes inedible by misjudging how intense (or not) my slow cooker would cook. I much prefer the precision of my stovetop, which I can tweak to perfection. Its for these reasons Ive recently become enamored with one of the original slow cookers the tagine. At heart, these conical cooking pots from Morocco are similar to a Dutch oven, at least in terms of how they are intended to be used. The base is shallow, similar to a saute pan. This is topped with a cone-shaped lid. The base is heated directly on the stove, giving the cook not only the ability to sear meat, but also to finely tune the temperature. Many tagines are ceramic, but some are cast iron. Once the ingredients are seared and liquid is added, the lid is placed on the base, the heat is adjusted to maintain a simmer and the cook can walk away. The shape of the lid is designed to allow steam to gather and condense at the top, then drip back down into the food. The result is near flawless slow cooking that results in moist, tender meats. I usually start by browning onions and garlic in oil, then adding meat and searing that. I dump in the rest of my ingredients, then pop on the lid, lower the heat and walk away for several hours. So to help usher in spring, I used my tagine to create this recipe for lamb with chick peas, tomatoes and rosemary. Hugely flavorful and tremendously easy. I keep it lean by trimming away as much fat from the lamb as possible. Dont have a tagine? Use a heavy duty Dutch oven. What youll need:Two tablespoons olive oil.One large yellow onion, diced.One head garlic, minced.Two pounds lamb leg or stew meat, trimmed of fat and cut into 1-inch pieces.Two tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary.15-ounce can chopped or diced tomatoes.15-ounce can chickpeas, drained.Three quarters of a cup chicken broth.Salt and ground black pepper.One lemon cut into wedges.Chopped fresh parsley, to garnish.Plain Greek yogurt, to serve. In the base of a tagine or large Dutch oven over medium-high, heat the oil. Add the onion and garlic, then saute until tender and lightly browned, about two to three minutes. Add the lamb and brown on all sides, about 15 minutes. Stir in the rosemary, tomatoes, chickpeas and broth, then bring to a simmer. Cover, reduce heat to maintain a bare simmer and let cook for two hours, or until the lamb is fork tender.Season with salt and pepper, then divide between serving plates, over rice if you so choose. Squeeze one or two lemon wedges over each serving, then top with parsley and a dollop of yogurt.Start to finish: Two and a half hours (15 minutes active).Servings: Eight.Nutrition information per serving: 300 calories; 110 calories from fat (37 percent of total calories); 12 g fat (4 g saturated; 0 g trans fats); 75 mg cholesterol; 21 g carbohydrate; 4 g fiber; 2 g sugar; 28 g protein; 510 mg sodium.Tagine pot can bring out lots of flavorBy J.M.HIRSCHAssociated PressTHE DINING TABLE Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESSRosemary lamb tagine with chickpeas and tomatoes takes little effort done the slow-cooking way.
