The Marathon golf and tennis clubs 49 certificated members unanimously approved a plan on Aug. 22 to sell the property to a group headed by Marathon Finance Director Peter Rosasco and Keys developer Marvin Rappaport. Suffering from a severe decline in membership in recent years, the clubs board of directors flirted with a similar group headed up by Miami-based developer Roger Masters in 2010. Masters is now developing a planned Marriott hotel in Old Town Marathon; the same site Rosasco once planned for a Hampton Inn before selling the parcel along with other properties. Rosasco was adamant that plans are preliminary, but said the hope is to build a small boutique hotel of 60-65 rooms, along with 13 vacation club cottages. Thats it, and all of that is going to go exactly in the existing footprint of the clubhouse and behind the tennis courts, Rosasco said, referring to equipment storage space near the courts. Were also talking about improving the golf course itself. Right now our budget has up to $200,000 per hole, he added. Were going to have to spend some money to make that course what it should be. Plans call for a new clubhouse to be built where the current tennis courts and storage space is, while the hotel would be built where the current clubhouse is. That building would be torn down.

Speakers argued over turbidity and its effects of coral reefs, the economic consequences and even the value of cruise ship passengers to the Southernmost Citys tourism-dependent economy. The forum, sponsored by the Key West Chamber of Commerce, is part of an intense campaign leading up to an Oct. 1 city referendum on the question. Three Political Action Committees have formed to press the matter, including the Key West Committee for Responsible Tourism, the Greater Key West Chamber of Commerce PAC and the Key West Seaport Alliance. Jolly Benson represented the Committee for Responsible Tourism; Robin Lockwood spoke on behalf of the Chambers PAC, and John Dolan-Heitlinger represented the Seaport Alliance. Both Lockwood and Dolan-Heitlingers groups favor the proposed $3 million study, which would require approval by Congress and be undertaken by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Also in play is the FloridaEnough is enoughvs. its a windfallBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTNew life for landmark barBuffalo, N.Y., native Timothy OConnell talks about his long-term plans for the former Overseas Liquor & Lounge building in Marathon with an enthusiastic smile on his face. Hes going to need all the optimism he can muster to restore the dilapidated mile marker 49 landmark to its former glory. After years of legal wrangling, OConnell on Wednesday accomplished what seemed impossible just a few days ago finalizing the purchase of the building from the estate of Joseph Ardolino. Last week, several local attorneys representing both OConnell and the estate claimed the city of Marathon was deliberately interfering with them finalizing the sale of the property. But differences were worked out and the closing went through. OConnell offered the Keynoter a tour of the grounds on Thursday afternoon and had no qualms with a series of less than flattering photos. I think maybe people should see how bad it is and how were going to make it better,he said. Everybody I talk to is excited about this project. You mention this place and they say, Ive got such great memories of this place. OConnell said he envisions a family-friendly restaurant complete with gift shops, an ice cream stand, indoor and outdoor seating and even tree houses for kids to play in outside.

Divers who enter in the fourth annual Key Largo Lionfish Derby get the green light to use pole spears in Upper Keys waters where all spearfishing has been banned for decades. This is the first time that there has been an exception for spearing, so we anticipate a pretty good turnout, said Martha Klitzkie, general manager of the Reef Environmental Educational Foundation (REEF) that organizes the derby. Divers will be allowed to spear lionfish in most areas of John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, and in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary waters outside the protected Sanctuary Preservation Areas and Research-Only Zones. The SPAs and other no-take areas remain closed.The invasion of lionfish certainly is an issue here, so were adapting the rules for one day to get more lionfish out of the water, said Deputy Sanctuary Superintendent Mary Tagliareni.All the agencies involved with the Key Largo derby emphasize that spearing will be allowed for one day only, exclusively for lionfish, and limited to derby contestants who fly a special lionfish pennant from their boat. This definitely is not a free-for-all, Tagliareni said. They cant have any other fish on board.

Bushs flats guide and co-founder of Islamoradas World Wide Sportsman store, died Saturday. He was 88. With a relaxed demeanor not common to all flats guides, Hommell attracted a clientele that included luminaries like Paul Newman, Jack Nicklaus and Dan Rather in addition to baseball legend Ted Williams and President Bush. He was a founding member of the Islamorada Fishing Guides Association that promoted release fishing. Amilitary veteran of World War II and Korea, Hommell taught himself to fly fish the flats and then shared his techniques with others. He created the first bead-eye fly, named the Hommell Evil Eye.

City wi n s Boot Key taki n gscaseMarathon residents dodged a potentially large bullet last week when acting Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker sided with the city in a land takings case involving majority Boot Key island owner Barry Yampol. The New York resident owns 99 percent 1,017 of 1,100 acres of the island just offshore of Marathon. On April 9, 2012, he sued the city claiming it took his land by refusing to repair the Boot Key Bridge his only access. The City Council declined to bankroll repairs to the failing bridge after repair cost estimates hit $10 million. It was closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic on Dec. 3, 2007. According to Beckers ruling, an inverse condemnation action based on substantial diminution of access is subject to a four-year statute of limitations. That means Yampol waited roughly four months too long to file suit. The court finds that [Yampols] inverse condemnation claim based on a substantial diminution in access to their Boot Key properties accrued on Dec. 3, 2007, when the city closed the Boot Key Bridge, Becker wrote. City Attorney John Herin told the Keynoter Becker made the same ruling in another takings case involving Keys Radio Group owner Joe Nascone. He filed suit in time and eventually settled with the city in September 2011 for $3 million. The judge previously entered an order in the radio station case that the taking had accrued with cause of action on Dec. 3, 2007, he said. Thus the four-year statute of limit expired on Dec. 3, 2011. Nascone headquartered his business on a 9.57-acre commercial lot on Boot Key and also sued the city after it refused to repair the bridge. Yampol could appeal to the Third District Court of Appeal in Miami, but Herin indicated to the council that he (Yampol) would have an uphill battle to reverse Judge Beckers order. The city has eyed purchasing Boot Key from its three private owners for several years, with designs on converting it to an ecotourism destination. Marathon Wireless Inc. also owns a small lot. The city was awarded $1.53 million in 2011 through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Program. But the grant is on hold because it requires a 100 percent match from the city, which intended to pursue money from Florida Forever, a state land conservation program. Money for that program has dried up in recent years. On Aug. 27, the city made acquiring Boot Key one of five projects submitted in applications related to the federal Restore Act of 2012. The act would set aside 80 percent of pending civil penalties for Gulf states tied to the April 2010 BP/Deepwater Horizon oilrig explosion and resulting damages. City Manager Roger Hernstadt said hes not discussed purchasing the land with Yampol or his representatives. Wed love to open a dialogue with them and see if theyd be willing to sell it within the regulations we as a government have to deal with, he said. In all likelihood it would be [bought] using state or federal money, or both, and they have specific regulations that have to be adhered to. Islands largest property owner can still appealBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONFestival funding to get a do-over?Marathon City Councilman Dick Ramsay says Monroe County Tourist Development Council dollars earmarked for Middle Keys events should be used only for that purpose. Ramsay is sponsoring an item on Tuesdays council agenda to discuss the decision last month by the TDCs Middle Keys district advisory committee (DAC 3) to cut Original Marathon Seafood Festival funding 40 percent from the prior year, while tripling its allocation for Fantasy Fest in Key West. The DAC 3 voted to cut Seafood Fest funding from $50,000 last year to $30,000, while increasing its Fantasy Fest award from $10,000 to $30,000. It also committed $20,000 to the annual Key West Poker Run that makes one stop at the Island Fish Co. in Marathon. One of the things I hope to see come out of this is . to send a letter to the [Monroe] County Commission to consider returning the funds that are being diverted to Key West to Marathon where it belongs to support our community and our fishermen, Ramsay said. At issue is the amount of heads in beds the Seafood Fest generates for the city. The event draws 20,000-plus visitors to Marathon Community Park each March, but its held at the height of tourist season. The TDC is making a concerted effort this year to more stringently evaluate events, with an emphasis on room rentals generated. Director Harold Wheeler called it a stretch to say visitors wouldnt already be in Marathon during the Seafood Fest.Monroe County Mayor George Neugent said he doesnt necessarily agree with the TDCs thinking. Hes a former Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce president and board member and told the Keynoter out-of-district event funding was rare in the past. I cant follow that line of thinking, he said. How many room nights do Fantasy Fest and the Poker Run generate in Marathon? DAC recommendations are not finalized until the TDC board and Monroe County Commission each vote in September and October. But Neugent said he plans to ask fellow commissioners at their Sept. 18 meeting in Marathon to have the DAC revisit its vote.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONSchools spending called positive but cautiousThe Monroe County School Board on Tuesday approved a 2013-14 budget that Director of Finance Jim Drake described as positive but cautious. The board unanimously approved the balanced spending plan at the final of three required public readings in a 22 minute session at Marathon High School. Drake projects matching revenue and expenses at $84.5 million. The adopted 2012-13 budget has revenue of $80.1 million and $79.5 million in spending. The adopted tax rate is $3.68 per $1,000 of assessed property value. The current rate is $3.66 per $1,000. That means the owner of a $300,000 home paid $1,098 in school taxes this year. With increased property values, that same homeowner can expect to pay $1,158 next fiscal year. Drake also noted a $6 million unassigned fund balanced: Its money to help the district handle any inopportune items, he said. Superintendent Mark Porter said the fund balance came in slightly higher than we projected. We are confident and intend that our fund balance will demonstrate an increase over the next 12 months. Also included in the budget is a Legislature-mandated $1.4 million raise pool thats $1.3 million in local tax dollars and $100,000 from the state. How that money gets divided is subject to ongoing collective bargaining with the United Teachers of Monroe union.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comOUR SCHOOLS they find. Spearfishing gear inside the park and sanctuary will be restricted to the use of pole spears with paralyzer tips.The three-pronged paralyzer tip is largely a safety measure for divers. Lionfish are armored with 18 venomous spines that can inflict a highly painful sting. You dont want a lionfish sliding down the shaft toward you, Tagliareni said.In 2012, 40 divers in the Key Largo Lionfish derby removed 461 lionfish from Upper Keys waters in one day.Sanctuary and state park [managers] have been really proactive about wanting to stay on top of the lionfish problem, Klitzkie said. There has been talk that protected waters may be creating a safe harbor for lionfish, so this is a new and innovative way to collect this invasive species.Lionfish breed yeararound and eat anything that they can swallow. They have no known natural predators in the Atlantic Ocean.Invasive lionfish are voracious predators from the Indo-Pacific that threaten Floridas marine ecosystems by devouring more than 70 species of native fish and invertebrates, according to REEF.

Keys National Marine Sanctuary, which has no regulatory process that would allow the actual dredging work, slated to cost more than $30 million and displace some 150,000 cubic yards of protected seafloor.All three speakers agreed that cruise ships play an important part in Key Wests economy, but they varied on implications to the environment.Lockwood, commenting on water haziness created by ships, elicited puzzlement from the crowd at the Westin Resort and Marina when he said: Corals may well be dependent on turbidity like forests are dependent on forest fires.He also said that the bulk of the dredging cost, $20 million, would go to mitigation.Lockwood, an orthopedic surgeon, described that mitigation funding as a windfall. You could replant the reef, he said, and described next-generation cruise ships with onboard advanced wastewater treatment facilities as environmentally friendly. To say that theyre environmentally friendly Benson responded, You must have a very loose definition of environment. Turbidity is a problem. Dolan-Heitlinger said the study and dredging would have impacts forever, essentially. Thats why, he said, its important to make a decision based on good information. The feasibility study will give us that good information. Benson said referendum approval and a subsequent study could start a chain of events that would slip out of the citys control. This isnt about gathering information, Benson said. We need to say, You cant take our island from us anymore. Enough is enough.If you cant live off whats coming in [monetarily] right now then you, my friend, are greedy. The Chamber-sponsored event was moderated by Key West attorney Ed Scales. Statistics maintained by the chamber indicate 813,713 visitors arrived in Key West on cruise ships in 2012 and 456,367 up until July this year. recession made it past time for a change at the club. We wanted to be sure [the club] is an asset for the city. In the past we had 280 members and it was a very active place, he said. In addition to 49 certificated owners, Belcaster said the club has 26 club members and approximately 175 player card members that pay an annual fee for the card and a per round fee. But when it comes time to upgrade the club you cant look to those members, you have to look to the owners, he said. In addition to Rappaport, who owns the former Crystal Cove Resort in Marathon, Rosasco has added a number of experienced people to his team. That includes hotel partner Bill Meyer, whose company operates hotels in 10 states, and Carl Berry of Star Resort Group. His company would handle the vacation club cottages. Rosasco said New York City-based Newmark, Grubb, Knight and Frank would provide financing for the project. The group has just begun its 60-day due diligence period. Rosasco said the club would continue to operate just as they are through next years tourist season. May 1, 2014, wed like to start construction. What well try right away is to improve the golf course, relocate tennis courts and build the new club so by 2015 season the recreational amenities are in place while we build the hotel and cottages, Rosasco said. The hope is to see the hotel open by fall 2015 after a 12to 15-month build out.

The ceilings and walls inside the building would also get a complete overhaul. Eventually, our third and fourth and fifth level plans are to have [a back porch area] come out so [the entire inside] is level and do a big patio outside with a bar,he said. OConnell also told the Keynoter he plans to reopen the package liquor store adjacent to the bar. The property has made headlines in recent years as the estate and the city battled in court over whether the right to operate the package store expired after it closed in 2008. Were going to open the liquor store in the old [space]. To start, the footprint is going to be exactly the same as it was,he said. OConnell and wife, Kathy, have lived in the Keys fulltime for three years and have been visiting since 2000. They own Productive Transportation, a trucking and warehouse business in New York.The couple also owned a bar called McQs in the Niagara Falls area and were looking to get back into the business. OConnell said its too early in the process to estimate an opening date, but hes hired R. Hendrick as his general contractor. He wants to do everything by the book because we know were going to be watched, OConnell said. The Overseas was Marathons oldest bar when it closed in 2008, open since the 1950s. In recent years it was a favorite spot of Boot Key Harbor residents and offered free wifi so boaters could bring computers and have Internet access. Package liquor store to reopenFrom Overseas,1AImplications for the environmentFrom Dredge,1ARaces canceled at the 11th hourApowerboat world championship planned for Sept. 13-15 in Marathon that few people knew was even planned was cancelled Wednesday when the promoter and Middle Keys lobstermen couldnt agree on moving forward. Powerboat P1 USAs season finale for its Superstock series was to crown the title in an eight-race circuit. But the Organized Fishermen of Florida and the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association contended the two days of racing would disrupt four days worth of the eight-month commercial lobster season, which started Aug. 6.Powerboat P1 USA Managing Director Martin Sanborn wanted our fishermen to move our lobster traps one day to move them, two days of possible missing harvest, fourth day of putting them back, the time and expense, said Commercial Fishermens Executive Director Bill Kelly. And what if we get hit by a hurricane after this? Were the Keyssecond biggest industry next to tourism.The city of Marathon wanted Powerboat P1 and the fishermen to find a solution before the city issued a permit and U.S. Coast Guard Ensign Peter Bermont, based in Key West, said the Coast Guard wouldnt issue a permit unless that happened. It didnt. We never denied it, he said. We were waiting for an agreement between the city of Marathon and the sponsors. Sanborn said he assured the fishermen the traps buoys and lines an estimated 400 along the race course near the Sunset Grille and Raw Bar on the oceanside end of the Seven Mile Bridge wouldnt be run over if they werent moved. But Kelly said there would be spectator vessels, the potential for trap robbing, the [Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission] was concerned about that. If racers hit buoys then, are they molesting these buoys against the law? Marathon last had powerboat races in 2009, staged under the banner of Superboat International. Sanborn said he worked on previous Marathon races with their chief promoter, Lee Mills, who died in 2006. But those races were in May, not during lobster season. The reality is this really affects only one or two guys who have traps there, Sanborn said. Up until the meeting we had [Aug. 26 at the FWCs Marathon office so all involved could try to reach agreement], we had no idea there were traps there. On the decision to cancel, he said, The take was its a new old event. I think thats unfortunate.Asked why few even knew about the weekend of racing, Sanborn said, Honestly, this first-year event, I was deliberately working low because I know the politics of the things involved. I was paying for everything. The most important thing for us was to put on a race that would show Marathon in a good light when the races were broadcast on sports networks worldwide.Powerboat P1s Azam Rangoonwala said the dry pits would have been at the Knights Key Campground and the boats launched from the public ramp on the other end of town next to the Island Tiki restaurant.On Aug. 14, the Marathon District Advisory Committee to the Monroe County Tourist Development Council awarded Powerboat P1 $30,000 to advertise the event next year. With what happened this year, will the races be scheduled?Right now, if the fishermens position is conscious of consistency, then we wont have an event next year, Sanborn said. The $30,000 would then go back into the Middle Keys DAC pot.Promoter cites dispute with lobstermenBy LARRY KAHNlkahn@keynoter.comMARATHON Everybody I talked to is excited about this project.Mention this place and they say,Ive got such great memories of this place.

But that was a fraction of the real number. Twenty children died in that same period. All were known to DCF, some also were known to the community-based-care providers the agency has contracted to deliver services. The figure reveals one stark fact: DCF and its agencies lack any transparency, quality assurance, data and accountability. Furthermore, that their deaths were revealed only after a major news organization made a public records request is an abomination that smacks of a cover-up.How will DCF respond? DCF administrators have promised transformation, a process they believe will right their wayward ship. Advocates arent convinced. Neither are lawmakers.State Sen. Eleanor Sobel recently held a town-hall meeting to learn more. What attendees discovered is that these deaths are the tip of the iceberg of systemic problems stemming from a failed experiment. Privatization has resulted in too many providers in each community, with too little accountability and too many children falling through the cracks. These often are children whose parents lost their parental rights. Furthermore, DCF killed its oversight of the community-based-care agencies three years ago. So were left to rely on the aggressive investigative efforts of the news media. The abuse suffered by all of these children was known or had been reported to DCF. But only in death have their situations become clear to the public. This is wrong.Hopefully, Sobels town-hall meeting will further shed light on these practices and improve the care and safety of Floridas most vulnerable children.Howard Talenfeld, president Floridas Children First Fort LauderdaleSupport the bird centerI received donation information from the Marathon Wild Bird Center and tossed it. Then a day later, I was driving home and saw a laughing gull caught on a light pole. The bird was flapping his wing madly; what a sorry sight.I pulled off the road to call Kelly Grinter of the Marathon Wild Bird Center. Then I saw her coming around her truck on the other side of the road. She was already there getting the rescue started. My check to the center is already written and was sent. Kelly has been doing this important work for 15 years and has helped over 15,000 birds. Check out their great website and write that check today. Thank you. Michelle Rafferty Key Colony BeachSay no to career politiciansTerm limits are not about liking or supporting a particular candidate. They are about good governance.The founders of this nation never wanted a permanent political class. They wrote: Nothing is so essential to the preservation of our government as a periodic rotation; preventing the perpetuity of office in the same hands for life.Along with the veniality and imperfection of all elected officials, the corrosive nature of power often rationalizes their deluded and detached decisions. Their actions then cross the line, negatively impact the lives and wellbeing of the people they serve. With term limits in place, politicians are more responsible toward their constituents, as they will soon be constituents themselves. They will be required to live under the laws, policies and burdens they have created.They will have less time in office to concentrate on developing financially beneficial relationships with specialinterest groups determined to keep them in power. Candidates will more likely run for the purpose of serving the people, as they will leave office before corruption can dominate their decisions.The need for re-election will no longer be the driving force behind most of their decisions. An emphasis on action that will make a positive difference in the lives of the people they serve would have become a priority. Political arrangements and allegiances made for the acquisition and maintenance of power would cease to be a prime directive. Money and favors would no longer be the driving force for aspiring politicians. As incumbents become firmly entrenched with the governing elites, they often lose sight of the daily struggles faced by working and middle class families. The gap must be reduced between savvy career politicians and the ordinary candidates who are better able to understand the daily realities of the American people. Partisan ideologues would have the opportunity to set aside their indoctrinate beliefs and actually work with their colleagues to enhance the quality of their constituents lives, as the party bossesstake in political outcomes will have been diminished.Special interests oppose term limits because they do not want to lose their valuable investments in incumbent law and policy makers. Encouraging citizen legislators rather than career politicians is a rising priority for many Americans.As we are strangulated by the oppressive weight of the body politic, nothing is more important than to reverse the pernicious rise of a professional political class. John Donnelly Key LargoAbolish TDCs DAC 3In reference to Bruce Schmitts paid letter to the residents of Marathon concerning Tourist Development Council funding for the Original Marathon Seafood Festival, I totally agree with him.What concerns me is the TDCs District Advisory Committee 3 is appointed to what appears to be a lifetime term, with no accountability. We should abolish the DAC 3 board and have its duties taken over by the Marathon City Council. Ronald Randall MarathonMarathon tourism money shouldnt be raided to help fund already profitable Fantasy FestYou might have heard that a group called Powerboat P1 USAwas planning to stage its championship Superstock races the weekend of Sept. 14 in Marathon. Or not. Likely the latter, since they werent advertised and were cancelled Wednesday because the promoter who says hes helped promote Marathon powerboat races in the past bizarrely planned the competition during the eight-month commercial lobster season, crucial to the Keys economy. Powerboats built for racing, lobster buoys and lobster lines dont mix. You might have also heard that on Aug. 14, the Middle Keys District Advisory Committee (DAC 3) to the county Tourist Development Council, which promotes Keys tourism, voted to give Powerboat P1 USA$30,000 to promote its Marathon championship next September. And you might have heard that at the same meeting, the DAC 3 voted to cut the Original Marathon Seafood Festivals TDC advertising budget by 40 percent, from $50,000 this year to $30,000 in 2014. The DAC 3 then voted to increase Fantasy Fest funding from $10,000 to $30,000. The stated reason? The Seafood Festival is a profit maker, so why do the Middle Keys need that $20,000 advertising money from the TDC? Let the Seafood Festival spend its profit marketing itself, or so goes the argument. Man oh man, but that logic doesnt fly especially given the money-makers out there that could stand on their own without Marathons $20,000 DAC 3 gift. They would be Key Wests Fantasy Fest, Poker Run and motorcycle Poker Run all of which do fine with DAC 1s own advertising money. Now back to Powerboat P1s $30,000 allocation from DAC 3, even though the promoters were so inept at trying to put together their races this year so inept, in fact, they canceled the races at the 11th hour. DACs fund in two categories; destination event and turnkey event. Destination events can use the money for advertising only. Turnkey events get the money merely if they stage the event they said they would, no matter how successful. Marathons DAC 3 had $200,000 to split for 2014 events. Voting to change the Seafood Festivals category from destination to turnkey were Vicki Tashjian, George Shattuck, Ralph Lucignano, Wendy Hall and Bill Ehrhorn. That is where the festivals $20,000 cut came from. Opposing meaning voting to maintain Seafood Festival funding were Bernard Spinrad, Michael Horvat and Kelly McKinnon.Seafood Festival funding is on the agenda for Tuesdays Marathon City Council meeting, which begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center. This deserves a thorough vetting. And someone had better explain why Marathon event funding should help subsidize profitable events like Fantasy Fest while reducing funding to promote the citys largest community event held every year. Nyad thanks Key WestThe Key West City Commission on Wednesday recognized endurance athlete Diana Nyad for her Monday arrival at Smathers Beach after spending more than 50 hours swimming from Cuba to the Southernmost City. Aproud Nyad accepted a plaque and proclamation while thanking the city for quickly organizing a parade from Key West High School to Duval Street on Tuesday. My mother would be mortified to see that I met with the commission of Key West in shorts,Nyad, 64, joked. She had previously attempted to swim across the Florida Straits four times. What a lovely, beautiful, generous, helpful community this is. I couldnt have landed somewhere that made me feel more at home, that embraced me and my team. On her record-setting feat: Thats very exciting and were all very proud of doing something no one ever did and may never do again. But its bigger than that. What we did was sort of drill down to the essence of the human spirit. This time we came out with a victory so much with the help of the citizens of your fair city.Cab Cleanup FeeAlso on Wednesday commissioners passed into a law a new ordinance that mandates a $50 cleanup fee for patrons that vomit in or otherwise soil a local taxi. Before his affirmative vote, Commissioner Tony Yaniz questioned City Attorney Shawn Smith: If I spill a drink do I have to pay $50? It is fairly specific as to the type of mess were talking about, Smith said as ordinance sponsor Commissioner Jimmy Weekley spelled out, Were talking about bodily fluids. Anotice of the new fee is required to be posted in Key West cabs.Pay StationsThe commission also approved the purchase of 11 more parking pay and display stations for $97,900 added to 58 already in place.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTCouncil approves 4 percent taxThe Marathon City Council is one step closer to wrapping up its budget season after approving a 4 percent tax increase Thursday. City Manager Roger Hernstadt had no changes to the 2013-2014 budget approved by the council other than a small tweak to allow for the city to hire a second state lobbyist. The city hired Ronald L. Book P.A. one of the states most powerful firms and Ballard Partners Inc. in an effort to secure $20 million in state sewer funding during the 2014 state Legislative session. Each will be paid $60,000 per year for two years. The sewer funding would come from the $200 million Mayfield grant authorized in 2009 for Keys sewer projects. The first $50 million of that money was doled out in 2012, but Marathon received nothing. The council voted on a tax rate of $2.29 per $1,000 of assessed property value. That is more than 5 percent over the rate that would be needed to generate the same amount of tax revenue brought in this fiscal year $2.18. And its about 4 percent higher than the current $2.20 per $1,000 property tax rate. Under the approved rate, the owner of a $300,000 house in Marathon would pay $689.07 in city taxes. The same owner paid $659.67 this year. The citys gross taxable property value for next fiscal year is $1.79 billion and is expected to generate at 96 percent collection $3.94 million in tax revenue. The citys property values increased $24 million, or 1.36 percent, from the year before. Its the first time in several years that property values have not declined. The budgets $9.13 million in expenditures would be an increase of $230,604 from the current year. The primary increases are $81,714 more for police services, $62,273 for fire rescue, $55,645 for general services related to employee insurance costs, and a $41,639 increase in the council budget largely related to increased cost of the Key West bus service. Councilman Chris Bull reiterated his desire to change a 3 percent salary bonus included in the 2013-14 budget to an across the board raise. I feel strongly that 3 percent should be a raise. [Employees] havent had a raise in five years, he said. Mayor Mike Cinque recommended postponing a vote on Bulls proposal until Tuesdays final budget hearing because Vice Mayor Rich Keating was absent.Tuesdays final public hearing is scheduled during the regular council meeting at 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Photo courtesy of ALYSON CREANDiana Nyad accepts a proclamation from the Key West Commission.

The bars and Evolution Fresh bottled juices, which are already in about a third of the companys U.S. cafes, are also being sold at Whole Foods supermarkets. In Starbucks cafes, the Evolution fruit-and-nut bars will cost $1.95 and replace the Kind bars the chain currently sells for the same price. The Evolution freezedried fruit packs will cost $2.50 and replace the $2 Peeled fruit packs.Starbucks says its using a third-party supplier to make the snacks, which is likely cheaper than paying for other name brands like Kind or Peeled.In another move thats likely to help profit margins, Starbucks this summer hiked prices in the U.S. despite its falling costs for coffee beans. The introduction of the Evolution snacks reflects a push by Starbucks Corp. to move beyond coffee in recent years. The company has been snapping up brands that can help it expand in the packaged food category while also supplying its own cafes. That has been the case with Evolution Fresh bottled juices, which to date have replaced PepsiCos Naked Juices in about 4,500 of the more than 13,000 Starbucks cafes in the U.S. Another of the companys other recent acquisitions, a small Bay Area bakery chain called La Boulange, is being used to replace the baked goods Starbucks offers. And last month, the Seattle-based chain said it was teaming up with Danone to start making Greek yogurt cups that will be sold in its cafes before rolling out to supermarkets. For now, Starbucks still gets the vast majority of its revenue from its more than 19,000 cafes worldwide.

Under Florida High School Athletic Association rules, a winter league team cannot bear the name of a high school or a schools nickname and a high-school coach cannot coach in games.Jack Niles, a former player and coach at Florida State University, will coach the Key West Winter League team, a program founded by Bill Spottswood in 1992. It is composed mostly of Key West High players, but also includes two Marathon High players and some eighth-graders still in Little Conch Baseball. This is fall travel ball, Henriquez said. Championships are built during the off-season. The team is scheduled to play a doubleheader against club teams from Mater Academy and Ferguson High at 10:45 this morning at Ferguson. On Sept. 21, the team will play Southridge at Rex Weech Field.As for his new Conch staff, Henriquez who succeeded Miguel Menendez in July has brought back Randy Sterling, a former New York Mets pitcher, and Chris Valdez. Both were with Henriquez when the Conchs won their 11th state title in 2005.The only member of Menendezs staff retained is former Conch player Dexter Butler. Rounding out the staff are former players Danny DiFabio and Raiko Alfonso, who was the starting freshman shortstop on the 2005 team.There are also two volunteer coaches Al DiFabio, a Key West baseball fixture, and former University of Florida player Ryan Rose. Henriquez wants to upgrade the Conchs longtime home, and already has installed new batting cages. An outdoor weight-training area is planned, as is landscaping for the ballparks entrance. The parking lot will be re-paved and new banners will be erected. We want to bring back the old days, he said.Niles to coach traveling team in off season, hoping to upgradeKEY WEST BASEBALLBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter Contributor Conchs lose to Sacred Heart teamTheyre good, Key West High volleyball coach Kim Butler said of Carrollton of the Sacred Heart before Thursdays District 16-4Amatch at the Bobby Menendez Gym. Carrollton confirmed that assessment, easily turning back the Conchs, 25-15, 259, 25-10. Key West dropped to 0-3 overall and 0-2 in the district, and has yet to win a game, getting swept in all three matches. The Conchs, though, returned serve better than they had in the first two matches, and were aggressive on defense, often diving for balls and coming up with digs on hard Carrollton hits. Were very scrappy, assistant coach John Grutowski said after the match. We dig a lot of balls. Thats what keeps us in games. The Conchs were led by senior Ryann Appleby, who had 10 points but was far from pleased. We need to practice more and come together, she said. Key West led only once in the match 2-1 in the third game. Once again the Conchs were overmatched by a team that had an array of scoring weapons. Six players scored in the first game. The only highlights for the home team in the second game were a smash by Appleby that ricocheted off a back-line player and hit the gym wall and an impressive dig by Sarah Pike.In the third game, Appleby had three points, Cheyenne Peppers had a point and a diving dig, and Samantha Golden scored on a serve.That final game, though, featured Carrolltons Anna Martinez, who scored six of the last eight points, dominating with kills, tip shots and serves.The Conchs will play at Gulliver Prep at 5 p.m. Thursday before hosting a tournament Friday and Saturday.By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST VOLLEYBALLKey Wests Ryann Appleby goes up to put away a point during Thursdays match with Carrollton.

Fekete helped lead the girls to wins over both opponents, while the Dolphins boys pulled out what coach Sarah Maschal said was their first victory in recent memory over LaSalle. The girls easily handled LaSalle, 689-220, and Keys Gate, 662-393. The boys beat LaSalle, 289-118, while a much larger Keys Gate team beat the Dolphins 714-238. LaSalle is kind of even par with us because they dont have a pool and a small boys team so there was a lot of good races between the teams, she said, referring to Marathons lack of a home pool. The team practices each day at Sombrero Resort on Sombrero Boulevard and travels to every meet during the season. Fekete beat out teammate Mallorie Woodbury by just one-tenth of a second in the 100-yard freestyle race, finishing in 1:04.3. The pair took first and second overall in the race. Fekete also won the 100yard backstroke in 1:14, which was good enough to break Markie Sanduskys school record by 3 seconds. Sandusky graduated last year. On the boys side, Aaron Grube bested his personal best in the 200-yard freestyle, finishing in 2:07, 2:09. The Dolphins are set to travel today to the Gulliver Prep Relay Invitational meet in Miami on Saturday. It was open to any South Florida schools, Maschal said.

Game time is approximately 6:30 p.m. after a 5 p.m. JVgame. The Lady Hurricanes (42) are coming off a twogame split this week, having lost at home to district power Gulliver Prep on Tuesday before sweeping Archbishop Curley on the road Thursday. Cane Coach Andy Thiery said he expects Coral Shores to continue being the lockdown defensive team that surrendered only a handful of service points to Curley. Great teams are sideout teams, Thiery said. They attack aggressively on their own serve but do not give up multiple points on the other teams serves, he said. We executed that strategy extremely well. Coral Shores scored the first 10 points of the match on sophomore Melissa Helphreys serves and never looked back in a lopsided three-game sweep. It was a welcome change from Tuesday when Gulliver took advantage of Cane mishits and passing errors to win the opening game, 25-9. Coral Shores regrouped to stay competitive in the second, 23-25, and won the third, 25-23, before dropping the fourth, 11-25. Senior captain Ellie Leopold had nine kills and three blocks in the match, with Helphrey scoring 10 kills. Brooklyn Irwin added three kills, and Skylar DeMoss had two.CORAL SHORES VOLLEYBALLBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com

Saturday,September 7,2013 3B Keynoter KeysNet.com Keys artists featured at Deering EstateForget-Me-Not is the title for works by three Florida Keys artists now on exhibit at the Deering Estate at Cutler in Miami. Nellie Appleby, Deborah Goldman and Regina Jestrow are all alumni Artists in Residence at The Studios of Key West. All three were selected because of their connection to botanical themes explored in various media. And their works take center stage at the Deering Estates Richmond Cottage, a coral rock structure built between 1896-1900 and part of the Miami-Dade County park system. Known for its lush, landscaped grounds and collective of native plants, the estate is located off Old Cutler Road, close to the far better known Fairchild Tropical Garden, which is also off Old Cutler Road. Jestrow says her work is an exploration of patterns, which began when she was young and learned to do neddlework from her mother. After moving to Miami in 1999, Jestrow worked on quilts and sewing. The definition of quilt is to stitch, sew and design with ones own two hands, she says. My work tries to translate the movement of color and design, combining ideas from the traditional art of quilting and contemporary art into my own personal, geometric, organic, threedimensional work. Goldman, who got a masters degree in fine art from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan, won the South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship for Visual and Media Artists in 2011. And has frequently exhibited in shows like New Voices at the Key West Art and Historical Museum; Women At Work shows sponsored by Lucky Street Gallery, and Four by Four, an exhibit presented by The Studios of Key West. Goldman also serves as an artist liaison on The Studios board of trustees. And she, Jestrow and Appleby all met through their time as Artists inBotanicals theme links new exhibitARTLAttitudes Staff Sunset celebration a quirky Key West must-seeIn most locales, the nightly sunset happens without fanfare. In Key West, its the occasion for a waterfront Sunset Celebration featuring colorful street performers and an island-style outdoor market. Like the island citys unusual cemetery, remarkable butterfly conservatory and historic aquarium, the sunset gala showcases the unique attractions that draw tourists to the Southernmost City. To mark the nightly sunset, people gather at Mallory Square, the historic pier overlooking Key West Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico, to enjoy a carnivallike atmosphere. Sunset performers are as much a highlight as the setting sun. Visitors might encounter a fire-eater with seemingly asbestos insides or a tightrope walker balanced high above his audience, silhouetted against the fiery glow of the setting sun. The festive waters-edge market is as appealing as the performances. Sunset celebrants can hear a fortunetellers predictions, buy jewelry or crafts handmade by local artisans or sample some Pretty Good Popcorn and other treats. To enjoy the celebration to its fullest, its best to arrive at Mallory Square at least 30 minutes before the sun actually sets and stay until it slips below the horizon. All the entertainment on the pier is free to watch, although entertainers do pass the hat following their performances. And performers are required to compete for a license from the city to perform at Mallory Square. For more information, visit www.sunset celebration.org. Much like the sunset celebration, the Key West Cemetery celebrates the islands individuality. It fills nearly 20 prime acres in the heart of the islands historic district. Renowned and picturesque, it features both above-ground stone-encased caskets and more traditional below-ground graves. Epitaphs range from poignant expressions of loss to I Told You I Was Sick, one island residents humorous legacy. The gravestone of Edwina Lariz, who died in 1986, reads Devoted Fan of Singer Julio Iglesias. The grave marker of Thomas Romer, a Bahamian veteran of the War of 1812, reports that he was a good citizen for 65 of his 108 years. On a more serious note, the cemeterys memorials and monuments spotlight unforgettable moments in local and regional history. One memorial shelters the remains of U.S. sailors who died when the battleship Maine exploded and sank in Havana Harbor in 1898, touching off the SpanishAmerican War. Another plot is dedicated to those who died in the Ten YearsWar, fought from 1868 to 1878 in an unsuc-Some tourists miss unusual island sites Florida Keys News Service TOURISMPhoto by FLORIDA KEYS NEWS SERVICEMallory Square is home to the nightly sunset celebration, a signature tourist attraction in Key West.See Key West, 4B Worlds End doesnt end soon enough for usThe Worlds End, rated R, 109 minutes, playing nationwide. Starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, The Worlds End is the third in a trilogy of films about buddies who unwittingly discover creepy and disturbing events and end up fighting to save themselves and, ultimately, the world. The first of the three movies was 2004s hilarious Shaun of the Dead and the second was the not-quite-as-funny Hot Fuzz from 2007. Unfortunately, The Worlds End is the least amusing and entertaining of the trio. Directed by Edgar Wright and co-written by Wright and Pegg, the movie starts off slow, gathers some steam in the middle, but goes off the rails near the end and literally crashes and burns at the finale. The premise is intriguing: Schoolmates reunite 20-plus years later to attempt a famous pub crawl they failed to complete in their youth. Joining Pegg and Frost (Attack the Block, Pirate Radio) are schoolmates Oliver, played by Martin Freeman (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy), Paddy Considine (The Bourne Ultimatum, Hot Fuzz) as Steven and Peter, played by Eddie Marsan (Jack the Giant Slayer, Snow White and the Hunstman). Pegg plays Gary King, the former ringleader of the group and the only one still living in the past. The rest of the gang has grown up and have jobs, wives or girlfriends, and a child or two. Now 40, in and out of various forms of therapy, drug and alcohol rehab, with no job, wife or kids, King tells everyone that hes free to do what he wants. And for reasons that will be revealed, what he wants is to complete the epic pub crawl they started way back when. The drinking binge is called the Golden Mile and involves downing a pint in each of the towns 12 pubs, ending at one called The Worlds End. King cajoles and cons the other guys into going along with him and things start out well. Everyone is holding up and still functioning but by the time they reach the fifth pub, Kings trip to the mens room reveals that something in the town is very wrong. But he is determined to finish the crawl no matter what and, joined by love interest Sam, charmingly played by Rosamund Pike (Jack Reacher, Wrath of the Titans), the merry band of buddies make their way from pub to pub. Along the way they discover a bizarre conspiracy to take over the world and slowly come to realize that they may be mankinds only hope. Do they complete the Golden Mile? Can they save the world? Lets just say that The Worlds End doesnt end well for mankind, or viewers.Trilogy finale doesnt equal past 2 filmsFILM REVIEWThe gangs in for some surprises during the reunion pub walk.

Open since 1935, it was one of the United Statesfirst open-air aquariums. Among the residents are stingrays, sharks, sea turtles, barracuda, tropical fish, tarpon, parrotfish and grouper. The Atlantic Shores exhibit features a 50,000gallon tank displaying a cross-section of a near-shore mangrove habitat and houses tropical and game fish. The aquarium also has a touch tank for hands-on interaction between sea creatures and humans. During daily tours of the facility, visitors can observe feedings of resident sharks and turtles while guides explain their habits and habitats. Participants in the guided tours even get an opportunity to pet a live shark. The aquarium is associated with a wide variety of accredited agencies working to rehabilitate injured sea turtles, and the facility is home to several recovering turtles and some whose injuries prevent their release back into the wild. The Key West Aquarium is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Guided shark tours are offered at 11 a.m., 1p.m., 3 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. For more information, visit www.keywestaquarium .com or call (888)5445927.
