Police said he pulled away from the traffic stop, drove through Old Town, then stopped his P.T. Cruiser on the sand at South Beach at the Atlantic end of Duval Street.

But sampling dishes made from the invasiveexotic fish was pure pleasure, he said.For years, people told me that lionfish was the best-eating fish they ever tasted, Zimmern said on the Port Largo Canal docks outside Sharkeys Pub.

Its superb.In the Keys to film an episode for the new Bizarre Foods America with Andrew Zimmern series, the noted chef, food writer and awardwinning television host joined the Winter LocalsOnly Lionfish Derby hosted by the Reef Environmental Education Foundation of Key Largo. Skies were mostly clear but strong winds made boating and diving for lionfish a challenge, organizers said. It was really rough, REEF General Manager Martha Klitzkie said. Were lucky we have so many people dedicated to the [lionfish eradication] cause. Zimmern did not dive but journeyed out with the winning Islamorada Dive Center crew that captured 84 of the 143 lionfish taken by the contests seven teams. Its just fantastic that the community puts on a great event like this, Zimmern said. Even in these conditions, people were thrilled to be out there, slammin the lionfish for this very important cause. Lionfish are a Pacific species, armored with an array of venomous spines that protect it from predators. The invasive species, fast breeding and voraciously hungry, has spread through the Caribbean and poses a threat to native fish populations.

But they didnt realize and the developer never divulged that Winn-Dixie is no longer interested in opening a store there. Instead, two other unnamed companies are negotiating deals with the developer.

Patrol ends search for pilotThe Civil Air Patrol has called off its portion of a search for a pilot whos been missing since taking off from Florida Keys Marathon Airport on Feb. 7. Andrei Postelnicu was at the helm of a single-engine Piper PA-28 Cherokee when it left the Middle Keys airfield headed to Vero Beach Municipal Airport. The last contact he had with anyone was with the air control towers in West Palm Beach and Stuart around 8 p.m. Feb. 7. Since then, small parts of the rented plane and some of Postelnicus personal items were found, but not the pilot, a financial researcher and writer for Moodys Investor Service. Christine Weiss, spokeswoman for the Martin County Sheriffs Office, said Tuesday we have located a total of three small pieces of an aircraft, one of which specifically ties it by model number to a Piper aircraft. Wednesday, the Civil Air Patrol said over the course of this five-day operation, 25 volunteer professionals of the Civil Air Patrol have contributed nearly 1,000 man-hours, utilized five aircraft for a total of seven air sorties and performed numerous ground searches of local beaches. Through radar analysis, flight data and other investigative methods, the crash location has been narrowed down to within a very small area. Further attempts to locate the exact site will be made by other agencies equipped with marine capabilities.

Golden, D.M.D.American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Florida Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, American Dental Association has drawn since approved. Theyre afraid of what theyre going to say, apparently, she said. Language used in invocations thus far has drawn the praise of some and the criticism of others beginning with Marathon Church of God Pastor Nick Vaughn using the word Jesus, as opposed to the more broad term God, on Jan. 14. On Jan. 28, Rev. Bruce Crabtree from Martin Luther Chapel gave a three-minuteplus prayer that some residents claimed was a sermon. It alluded to Creationism as the reason for the universe. But the prayer itself wasnt the issue on Tuesday; finding someone to deliver it was. Rev. Jeff Cox of the First Baptist Church on 62nd Street in Marathon agreed to give the invocation after being contacted by City Clerk Diane Clavier, who was given Coxs phone number by Snead. His invocation was short and didnt mention a deity but did mention heavenly father and in the name of your son I pray. Clavier received just two responses to 64 letters she sent to clergy Keyswide soliciting interest in giving the invocation. She sought council direction on whether to expand the search or do away with the policy.Snead opened the discussion by suggesting the council produce a standard invocation used at each council meeting. Thats not allowed, Senmartin pointed out prior to moving the resolution be rescinded. Senmartins motion died without a second.I think it says specifically in the resolution that were not to dictate what is said and that were only supposed to allow clergy, Senmartin said.City Attorney John Herin agreed and recommended against a standardized invocation. The courts have suggested very strongly that you need to tread carefully and not impose your version of what religion should be, Herin said. Herin also recommended scrapping invocations and revisiting them at a later meeting.The clerk has called me on a number of occasions and indicated she has reached out far and wide. Its at a dead end because we dont have the people, he said.The council took no formal action, but basically directed staff to leave the policy alone. If people come out, they come out. If they dont, we dont have an invocation beforehand. It was passed by this council and it should run its course, Vice Mayor Chris Bull said. Dick Ramsay, whos sided with Senmartin since his Dec. 11 vote to approve invocations, was absent Tuesday. He was in Tallahassee on city business and submitted a statement Clavier read into the record.Ramsay wrote that he feels the invocation policy is distracting from day-to-day city business and creating disharmony within our community.For now, prayers stay at meetingsFrom Prayer, 1A POSTELNICUKeynoter StaffThe courts have suggested very strongly that you need to tread carefully and not impose your version of what religion should be.

Patricia Silver, an Islamorada attorney representing developers 81001 Overseas Highway LLC and Win-Development LLC, said her clients have no obligation to say who the proposed tenant of the 22,237-squarefoot building is, as long as that company plans to build a grocery store. All I wanted was approval for what the law requires, Silver said Friday. When asked if the developers had any intention of telling the council the proposed supermarket is not Winn-Dixie, Silver said its not relevant. I didnt say it wasnt [a Winn Dixie] and I didnt say it was, Silver said. Win-Development and 81001 took over the project last summer after the previous developer, Net5 FDA, went into foreclosure. Since then, never did WinDevelopment, 81001, anyone on the village planning staff or the Village Council ever publicly state that any company other than WinnDixie would operate from the property.Owen Ewing of WinDevelopment would not name the companies in question. This was one of several reasons Mayor Ted Blackburn said he voted against granting the developer a major conditional-use permit to allow the zoning change.There is no opportunity for us to vet who will be coming in, he said. But Purdo and Blackburn were outnumbered by their three colleagues, who did not take issue with the developers not naming the proposed tenant.A grocery store is a grocery store is a grocery store, said Councilman Mike Forster.Nor did the council members take issue with the fact that the council communication that planning staff gave them, dated Feb. 13, the day of the meeting, is crystal clear that WinnDixie is the proposed tenant. Winn-Dixie is mentioned 56 times in the document.Cheryl Cioffari, Isla moradas director of planning, said Friday that the developers never told her or her staff that they were changing tenants. Cioffari said she does not know when the developers knew Winn-Dixie withdrew from the project.I dont know when they knew because they never told me, Cioffari said. Forster said that legally, the developer does not have to say who the tenant will be. He also said Publix, which received preliminary council approval in December to build a grocery store on Upper Matecumbe Key, is within its right to turn around and sell its property to another company wishing to build a supermarket. I wish the box could be unfolded and unwrapped and someone could pop out and say here I am, but I dont think thats going to happen, Forster said.Cioffari said her decisionmaking process is not influenced by who the proposed tenant is, but rather the merits of the rezoning application.

A focus on law enforcement for Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary waters dominates a daylong meeting of the sanctuarys advisory council Tuesday in Key West. Officers from several state and federal agencies that patrol or prosecute violations within the 2,900square-mile sanctuary will make presentations to the volunteer advisers in the open session. Council member Chris Bergh plans to seek a resolution from the group that asks the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Admin istration for more money and resources needed to enforce sanctuary regulations in order to protect critical marine habitat, including coral reef, hard bottom, seagrass meadows, mangrove communities, sand flats, and historical [or] cultural resources. It is one of the most important issues that we have to deal with here, said council member Ben Daughtry, a Marathon marine-life collector. Strained government budgets in recent years have decreased on-the-water patrols that protect no-harvest areas and enforce other sanctuary regulations. During recent sanctuary council meetings to discuss new protected areas or expansion of existing ones, critics argued that enforcement personnel at sea already are stretched too thin to safeguard existing no-take areas.One of the biggest complaints from users now is that [the sanctuary staff] cant take care of what that have now, so why change anything or add new areas for protection, Daughtry said.Council member Don DeMaria, a Lower Keys commercial diver, agreed, Basically, any time a new rule is implemented that cannot be properly enforced, we have just created a type of limited entry system for those that will cheat. The honest fisherman is excluded.The meeting begins at 9 a.m. Tuesday at the Double Tree Grand Key Resort, 3990 South Roosevelt Blvd. A panel discussion at 2:45 p.m. involves federal and other law enforcement and prosecutors.

Agreeing with concerns of agency staff and licensed marine-life collectors, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission unanimously approved a 200-animal daily boat limit of sea cucumbers beginning April 1. We definitely would be out of business if the Florida Sea Cucumber Corp. cannot purchase larger quantities from the few fish collectors who sell to the company, owner Eric Lee told the FWC board at its Tampa meeting. Florida sea cucumbers (Holothuria floridana) can be taken in commercial quantities only by the states licensed marine-life collectors, who mostly harvest live fish for sale in the aquarium industry. Jeff Turner, president of the Florida Marine Life Association that represents most of the 160 collectors, said the group strongly endorses the 200 daily boat limit for sea cucumbers. No new marine-life permits are being issued. The slow-growing and slow-moving [sea cucumbers] could be easily overfished in short order with a larger limit that attracts more sellers, Turner said. Dried and processed sea cucumbers are popular in Asia for nutritional and medicinal purposes. Since the animals are mostly water, it can take dozens to make a pound of sellable product, Lee said. Most of the harvests likely would occur in Florida Keys waters, FWC biologist Melissa Recks told the agency board. Other worldwide areas that commercially fish for sea cucumbers often experience a boom and bust cycle where pressure quickly depletes the species population. Since the invertebrates are important to the marine ecosystem and no one knows how many sea cucumbers live in Florida waters, she said, a precautionary approach is warranted while this fishery develops. If the daily limit were raised to 500 or 800 animals, Turner said, more licensed collectors may start selling sea cucumbers for food. I dont think we would have a sustainable fishery at that rate, he said.200 a day is in effect as of April 1OUR ENVIRONMENT This is a Florida sea cucumber. Theyre popular as food and for medicinal purposes in Asia.By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comCity is giving up $1.53 million grantThe city of Marathons longstanding vision to make Boot Key a first-class ecotourism destination is on hold for the foreseeable future.The City Council on Tuesday begrudgingly forfeited a $1.53 million grant awarded through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Program in 2011 to help finance the purchase of most of the island. The city would have had to match that $1.53 million.For years, the city has aimed to package Boot Key with local attractions like Crane Point Museum and Nature Center, the Dolphin Research Center, Pigeon Key and the Turtle Hospital to market the Middle Keys as an environmentally friendly vacation spot. While it pains me greatly, at this point, I dont think that its fair for us to hold that money up so someone else who has a willing buyer could use it. Id be willing to say were not getting anywhere, Councilwoman Ginger Snead said. New York native Barry Yampol owns 99 percent (more than 1,000 acres) of the 1,100-acre island just off Marathon in the citys Old Town area. Its mostly unbuildable wetlands, but Yampol does have several building rights.The bridge to the island was closed to auto and pedestrian traffic on Dec. 3, 2007, after the city declined to pay the estimated $10 million that was needed for crucial repairs.The city has long pursued purchasing the island from its three private owners, but Yampol has been unwilling. Keys Radio Group owner Joe Nascone and Marathon Wireless Communications Inc. own small portions.This was a grant we sought and were one of six [governments] in Florida that got it. We may never have an opportunity to apply for it again, city Planning Director George Garrett told the council.On April 9, 2012, Yampol sued the city claiming the city took his land by refusing to repair the bridge. It was the only land access to the island.He lost, with acting Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker ruling Yampols suit was filed four months too late.Becker made the same ruling in another takings case involving Nascone. He sued in time and settled with the city in September 2011 for $3 million. City Attorney John Herin said Yampol has appealed Beckers decision to the Third District Court of Appeal in Miami.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON

The apartments are in the Poinciana Housing complex on Duck Avenue.Everything were doing is a strategic decision by our board in order to guarantee the long-term sustainability of these programs and provide uninterrupted services to our clients, Heron-Peacock Executive Director Rick Casey said.Final approval to transfer the leases would be given by the Key West City Com mission. Casey said he expects it to be considered by that board some time in March.In the meantime, HeronPeacock will concentrate its efforts on the Heron, an assisted-living facility in the Coco Plum area of Marathon housing 16 full-time residents with chronic mental illnesses. Its been there 25 years.However, Casey said the nonprofit is also pursuing an arrangement for that facility to be taken over. He declined to discuss specifics because no deal has been finalized.Nonprofit organizations Keyswide have felt the pinch in recent years as annual funding sources and other available money has dried up. In Heron-Peacocks case, it necessitated major changes.The public funding we compete for has gone down 60 percent in the last four years, Casey said. Weve been unable to recover that from private individuals, foundations and fundraising. That loss was significant. Heron-Peacock employs two workers at the Peacock Apartments. Theyd stay on and work for the Outreach Coalition. The property serves 31 individuals and is typically always at capacity with mentally ill adults, Casey said.The age of clients ranges widely, from 24 to 60, and average stays is anywhere from six months to more than two years. Thats because one set of apartments is transitional while another is more permanent housing.We provide housing, medication supervision, medical and psychiatric appointments and referral to other social services throughout Key West, Casey said of the Peacock Apartments. The Heron in Marathon is an assisted-living facility and legally requires the nonprofit to provide more indepth care to those clients. Rev. Stephen Braddock, president and chief executive officer of the Outreach Coalition, said he expects a seamless transition at the Peacock. Ive been working closely to see there will be no disruption of housing or client services, he said. Not even the name would change, Braddock said. Im laser-focused on addressing the maintenance and repairs needed to ensure the longterm stability, he said. I believe this will just be enhancements and a renewed sense of stability.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comSOCIAL SERVICES120-foot tower revisitedAn independent thirdparty review could clear the way for a cell tower on the same vacant 64th Street lot that was denied by the Marathon City Council in December 2011.The citys advisory Planning Commission is slated to consider granting Keys Wi-Fi Inc. a conditional-use permit to construct a 120-foot tower on the property owned by Realtor Brian Schmitt.The Planning Commission hearing, set for Tuesday, comes after the city hired Marathonbased Solaria Design & Consulting Co. to evaluate the project. Planning Director George Garrett said the report was finalized this week and is favorable to Keys Wi-Fi.In their review of the project, there werent any technical deficiencies. There may be other technologies you could use, but theyre not appropriate for cost-benefit considerations, Garrett said.Keys Wi-Fi owner Rick Richter previously intended to construct a 150-foot tower on the roughly 10,000-squarefoot lot near U.S. 1. It was voted down, 3-2, with council members Ginger Snead, Rich Keating and Pete Worthington voting to deny.Richter sued the city in March 2012, and Circuit Court Judge David Audlin ruled in June the council was within its rights to not allow construction of the tower.The independent review by Solaria wasnt done in 2011, but could have been required by the city. Garrett said at the time that he actually didnt think we needed it.The councils denial came despite Garretts recommendation and a unanimous Planning Commission vote in favor of the tower. Snead, Keating and Worthington were concerned with placing it in a residential area. Its basically surrounded by commercial properties on three sides. The property behind it is commercially zoned and right now its got trees on it, Garrett said. Richter said in October that wireless giants Verizon and AT&T have expressed interest in renting space on the tower. There is a gap in coverage in the middle of Marathon, with no towers between Coco Plum Drive and 20th Street. If approved by the commission on Tuesday, the conditional use would require City Council approval at a later date. The planning panels meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the fire station at Florida Keys Marathon Airport.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON

Here, President William Howard Taft (with the mustache) visits Key West with friends in 1912.CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALWise ideas for Old Seven MileLETTERS TO THE EDITOR LETTERS TO THE EDITORReligions at nations coreI am an American citizen who believes that this country was founded on religion. The negative responses to Pastor Nick Vaughns invocation at a Marathon City Council meeting are totally pointless. He was asked to pray and he did just that. Each clergy person will pray the way he or she does every day, so get over it. They should not have to change the way they pray every day just to satisfy one councilman and the mayor. Some pray to the stars, some to Buddha, God, Jesus, Allah and many more in each belief. If the councilman is so opposed to prayer, let him remain seated as he has in the past and let the ones who want prayer over the council and its decisions to do what is best for our beautiful city do that. Pastor Nick just wants the council to make good choices for the place where he lives, along with the rest of us that live here. I am glad that prayer is finally in our council meetings. Where is the thank-you to Pastor Nick from the city? He has never turned the city away in helping with the Family Fun Day, Family Skate Night, feeding the homeless and many more things he has stepped up to the plate to help with. He has gotten the church to step up and do for the city in these events, as well. So where are the thank-yous that should be written about his help and support? Enough is enough in the newspaper and dragging him through the mud for doing what he was asked to do. Wake up, people, and stand up for the other side. I know I am. Chic Reichel MarathonReservations for homelessPeople have been replaced by machines. Millions are homeless. The national policy with respect to homeless people is passive euthanasia. If a woman is homeless, she has lost her right to her land. If a man is homeless, he has lost the right to his land. Being forced to live without shelter causes the natural consequence of unnatural death. The homeless are surviving somewhere on the land, anyway. It is the responsibility of society to recognize this basic fact of life. Five to eight acres of land is enough to resolve the issue of every homeless family in Key West. Homeless people would own the land in common, same as Indian reservations. This is a compromise between the taxpayers, the homeless people, downtown merchants and government. The American homeless land model is a plan at no cost to the taxpayers, no cost to the state and no cost to the downtown merchants. The city of Key West finds itself with abundant wealth and could easily afford to five to eight acres of land to the homeless. The homeless would be required to keep the peace at all times or forfeit the right to the land. Ultimately, the American homeless land model is an effort to establish one homeless land reservation in each county of the United States. In addition, any municipality can choose to create a homeless reservation adjacent to that municipality as civil defense for the people, located on the least-valuable land, ordinarily near the county or municipal dump. Kenneth Churchill Medford, N.Y. As an avid fisherman, the Miami International Boat Show, which opened Thursday and runs through Monday, is an annual pilgrimage. This year I will be tearing my daughter away from her PlayStation long enough to accompany me. Shes started to enjoy fishing with me and, once there, I think shell share my amazement at the size of the crowd of fellow anglers testing out the latest electronic gadgetry in pursuit of gaining ever-greater efficiency in catching more fish. The boat show, as enjoyable as it is, underscores the strength of two unprecedented pressures placed on our fisheries: Ever-growing coastal populations and new technologies that ease the search for fish. These are longstanding pressures. Weve all struggled with the consequences.So I am shocked that U.S. House Committee on Natural Resources Chairman Doc Hastings (R-Wash.) is proposing a draft bill he calls the Strengthening Fishing Communities and Increasing Flexibility in Fisheries Management Act. In one stroke, this bill would gut one of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Acts most successful conservation provisions annual catch limits. In many of my daughters favorite video games, she is awarded a set number of credits that she must manage to grow in her game world. Annual catch limits work much the same way for fish.The ocean has only so many newly spawned fish each year. Unlike my daughters game where she can simply start over, when annual catch limits are exceeded, our fisheries do not have a reset button, which means fishery populations face the real threat of depletion. This is proven science. There is no denying that annual catch limits have been painful for anglers, but there is also no denying that they are good laws that should not be gutted just as they are showing success. I witnessed the roller-coaster ride of a species in decline before managers agreed to set sustainable fishing levels for grouper, which resulted in shorter seasons or full closures until the population rebuilt. If managers had been proactive, setting science-based annual catch limits and the accountability measures to enforce them before the species was in full decline, we anglers would not have to wait as fishery managers fumbled for the reset button and forced us to wait for nature to run its course and the stocks to replenish. Anglers worth their salt understand were all stewards of the sea. And with stewardship comes responsibility. Our nation once took great pride in willingly enduring self-sacrifices now to protect the future of resources that belong to our children as much as ourselves. The ocean isnt a limitless resource. Yes, its resilient. But only with proper care and management. I am teaching my daughter to respect the rules resource managers set to ensure good fishing tomorrow, even if they sting today. Congress would teach her a very different lesson if it tampers with the Magnuson-Stevens Act as the House draft bill proposes. Our leaders in Congress, I would have to explain to her, misunderstand what must be done to ensure good fishing for the present and the future. When the Magnuson-Steven Act was last reauthorized in 2007, Congress took great strides to end overfishing. The maxim then was as true as it is today: Overusing public trust marine resources weakens fishing communities. Its toying with my daughters fishing future. And it violates responsible stewardship. This is simple stuff. A child can understand it. Congress once did, too, as the Magnuson-Stevens Act proves. Lets hope it hasnt forgotten. David Moss of Davie in Broward County represents recreational fishing interests on the South Atlantic Fishery Management Councils SnapperGrouper Advisory Panel.State, county, local governments step up to preserve piece of historyPreservation often involves recycling the purpose of a structure: Change its use but keep the original design or adaptive reuse, to get clinical about it. One of the most successful repurposing projects is New York Citys High Line Park, a greenway built on top of a mile of abandoned railroad tracks. Its a metro attraction year-round that turned a not-so-pretty stretch of elevated tracks into a lush, open place to walk, attend a concert or just chill. A similar plan for the old Seven Mile Bridge in Marathon is now in the works, and its a great idea. Originally built as part of Henry Flaglers Overseas Railway in the early 1900s, the bridge was considered a major engineering feat at the time. It was replaced with a new span in the early 1980s. But it never lost its appeal to locals and visitors alike. The remaining 2.2-mile span accessible to the public is a great place to take a stroll, exercise or watch a spectacular Keys sunset. But as it has deteriorated, the Florida Department of Transportation has been considering closing the 100-year-old span to public access for safety and budget reasons. No more. Thanks to officials from DOT, Monroe County and the city of Marathon working together throughout the fall, a plan is being hammered out to turn the bridge into a park. A little over $77 million has been designated by DOT, the county and the city for repairs and to cover 30 years of maintenance. DOT will foot $57 million of the bill over the next three decades and retain ownership of the bridge. Monroe County will contribute $14.2 million and Marathon $5.3 million. A preservation group called Friends of Old Seven plans a fundraising campaign for private donors to help pay for beautification on the bridge and nearby areas. One of those neighbors is Pigeon Key, an island where Flaglers railroad workers stayed and accessible by walking, biking or skating the old Seven Mile; or by boat. There are several typical Keys cottages on the tiny, picturesque island, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. Its a charming Keys historical attraction. Converting the bridge into a park will be a boost for the islands staunch supporters and fans. And Marathon hopes to gain from the linear, elevated park, as well. City boosters believe it will draw overnight visitors who, these days, just stop for gas or drive straight through to Bahia Honda State Park, Big Pine Key and Key West in the Lower Keys. A lot of credit should be doled out to the folks from DOT, Monroe County and Marathon. Early last fall it looked like the bridge would eventually be closed to the public as saltwater and other elements continued to eat at it and the price tag for repairs kept rising. But wiser thinking prevailed. Flagler would be pleased.

The report, prepared for the states Department of Economic Opportunity and paid for by the Motion Picture Association of America, projected a positive return on investment for the Floridas Film and Entertainment Industry Finan cial Incentive Program. Specifically, the study looked at how much tourism money the film industry could attract from 2011 through 2017. That ranged from about $1.6 billion to $5.9 billion, assuming either 5 percent or 19.5 percent of Florida visitors come here because of something they saw in a movie or TV show.With $296 million in state tax credits over that time, the industrys return on investment would range from 5.6 percent to 20.5 percent, meaning the productions would generate between $5.60 and $20.50 for every dollar theyre given in tax credits. The state enacted the incentive program in 2010 in hopes of bringing more film and other entertainment productions to Florida. Lobbying groups like Film Florida and state lawmakers like Rep. Manny Diaz, R-Hialeah, are pushing the Legislature to fund incentives through 2020.The program attracts a significant amount of entertainment projects, and in turn, Florida gains direct and indirect jobs, tax revenue and film-induced tourism dollars from the film and entertainment industry, Film Florida President Leah Sokolowsky said in a statement. If leveraged to its full potential, the incentive program has the ability to infuse even more capital into our states economy.The return on tax credits is around 20%By EVAN S.

A masterful one-hit pitching performance by Kyle Pierce shut down Coral Shores Highs lineup as Marathon High School posted a 5-0 victory Thursday in Islamorada. I was hitting my spots, the 6-foot-3 junior said. The pitches were where they need to be. The Dolphin righthander needed just 76 pitches to log the complete game, striking out nine Hurricanes. He faced 23 hitters and walked none in the South Florida Baseball Conference contest. Kyle did a great job mixing his fastball with off-speed pitches, Marathon coach Luis Leal said. Coral Shores sent its own ace to the mound. Junior Will Goodwin responded with a solid no-run, no-hit effort through three innings, striking out five Dolphins. Carlos OFarrill jumpstarted the Marathon offense with a fourth-inning single, the first hit off Goodwin. OFarrill, Marathons shortstop, then stole second and third as the Dolphins took advantage of two walks and a Cane fielding error to score the games first two runs.Marathons Robbie Garcia reached on a bunt to open the fifth and came around to score as the Dolphins used a walk and a single by Jesse DeLuca. With no outs, Coral Shores switched to freshman thrower Jose Lima, who got the Canes out of the jam.The Dolphins (1-1) pulled away in the top of the seventh, with OFarrill tagging a two-run single to score Garcia and DeLuca. It took a double play by Coral Shores shortstop Fernando Garcia to end the rally. Marathon ended the Canes seventh-inning hopes with a strikeout, pop fly and pickoff play. Dolphin catcher Kevin McKeon, previously the starting second baseman, really stepped up when Marathon needed to find a backstop, Leal said. He volunteered to move, and did a super job. Kevin called almost all the pitches. Hurricane catcher Kyle Gates lashed a triple in the third inning for Coral Shores lone hit.

Story, 3BBSports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Conchs run past HurricanesThey had never run track before, but on Thursday afternoon, the Jacobsen twins of Coral Shores High School ran like the wind in the season-opening meet at Key Wests Back Yard. George Jacobsen won the 100-meter dash in 11.56 seconds, edging the Conchs Jeffery Anilus, and Henry Jacobsen won the 200-meter dash in 23.74.Track kind of corresponds with football, George said. And we just wanted to help the team out.The juniors, who have husky, all-American looks, were stars on the Hurricane football team last fall. Their instant track success didnt surprise Coral Shores coach Mary Jo Fry, who also has them in her classroom. Theyre wonderful, she said.But despite the efforts of the twins, Coral Shores overall was no match for the Conchs. The Key West boys won, 97-22, and the Conch girls won, 93-34. Among the Key West winners was Francesca Garcia, the schools homecoming queen, who won the 100-meter high hurdles in 18.06. Hurdles are more entertaining than just running, she said. You have to keep your eye on the next hurdle, but still focus on the one youre running up to.Key West pole vaulter Erik Vinson known recently as the student inside the schools Conchy Conch mascot uniform tried unsuccessfully for a personal-best 13 feet 6 inches, but had to settle on a windy day for 13, which was good for first place.Other Conch boys who took first place included Anilus (long jump), Jack Gruba (discus and shot put), Jerry Burgess (mile run), Everett Wagner (two mile), Brock Guzman (800) and football quarterback Andrew Freeman (300 hurdles).Winning for the Conch girls were Caila DeAbreu (high jump), Marlecia Rice (discus and shot put), Breanna Johnson (100), Olivia Kennedy (300 hurdles) and Tristin Milliken (mile).For the Coral Shores girls, Chloe Stokes won the two-mile run and Kyla Herlth won the long jump (13 feet, 7 inches).

Marathon won, 5-0. See Baseball, 2B Photo by BERT BUDDEKey Wests Francesca Garcia heads for the finish line in her hurdles victory Thursday against Coral Shores. Dolphins, Conchs splitChris Bujak, noted more for his swimming, has emerged as the Key West High boys tennis teams No. 1 singles player after taking up the sport only two years ago.After looking good while warming up before the Conchs match with Marathon on Thursday afternoon, Bujak, a junior who practices more than anyone on the team, was realistic: All the No. 1s Ill be playing this season are really good. The No. 1 Marathon player with whom he was about to take the court, senior Vincenzo Massaro, certainly was really good and had a huge edge in experience. And so their match was about to begin on the nearest of Key Wests breezy forlornlooking courts before a small gathering of spectators.Good luck, Bujak, wearing one of the teams snazzy new red uniforms and wielding a Wilson racket, said to Massaro. You too, said Massaro, in white shorts and a blue T-shirt, and with a Babolat racket hes used for years.Taking advantage of several Bujak errors and double faults, Massaro, who displayed an accomplished serve and a blistering backhand, breezed to a 5-0 lead. Bujak, who was having trouble with his footing, won the next game on a service aceAfter overcoming some errors of his own, Massaro then closed out the match, 8 2. I hit my shots consistently to his backhand, he said afterward. And I keep low on my backhand, getting my shoulder into it for power.Bujak had retreated inside the adjacent gym, where he said, The wind was ridiculous, but I cant discredit him; he was a fantastic player and a good guy. Despite Bujaks loss, the Conch boys won, 5-2, to improve their record to 1-2. No. 2 Kyle Campbell defeated Jake Coldren, 8-3; No. 3 Simon Dayer defeated Jamine Guo; No. 4 Colin Hetzler won over River Fullhart, 9-7; and No. 5 Chun Poon defeated Michael Goheen, 8-1.

That gave the boys their first win as a team in quite some time, said coach Blake Fry. They all played very well. Fry said he expects the boys team, which has struggled in recent seasons, to improve as Morton solidifies at No. 1 singles, and Houser, newly arrived from basketball, gains experience with newcomers Kaufman and Miles Miller.The Lady Hurricane net squad (2-0) continued to roll, dispatching Pace in a 7-1 win.After No. 1 Erica Williams battled gamely in an 8-6 loss, the Canes swept the remaining seven matches and outscored the Lady Spartans in games, 56-4.

Junior Savannah Rodamer also had a big day, reaching base in all four plate appearances and launching a home run over the left field fence in the fourth inning. Coach Sean McDonald called the homer an impressive shot that struck the awning of the school building, which sits well past the fence. Rodamer, Amanda Bruland and Sydney Konrath all had two hits, while Roney and Rodamer each drove in two. Bruland and Konrath knocked in one run apiece. Roney was all but untouchable on the mound, striking out seven Cyclones and walking none over seven innings. Her first-pitch strike percentage was really high, which is something shes been working on. Thats been one of our goals for her, McDonald said, adding that the team settled down defensively behind Roney as the game wore on. The defense played solid; we limited our errors, which was nice. The last five innings I dont think we committed one error, he said. The Dolphins scored one run in both the second and third innings to build an early 2-0 lead, but a four-run rally in the fourth put the game out of reach at 6-0. Marathon (2-0) is scheduled to visit St. Brendan High School on Tuesday at 4 p.m. The Dolphins defeated the Sabres, 2-1, in their Feb. 7 season opener.Roney strikes out 7, Rodamer nails a homerBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON SOFTBALLKeynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYMarathons Savannah Rodamer rounds third base and heads home during a 6-0 home win over Carrollton School on Wednesday.

The bride, 27, is operations manager of Integrative Physical Medicine. The groom, 30, is scheduling manager at Dittmer Architectural Aluminum. The couple met while pursuing their MBAs at the University of Central Florida. LivingCupid goes right through S. FloridaIf Cupid were to have a home, it would be Miami International Airport. Before millions of Americans presented their loved ones with a bouquet of Valentines Day roses on Friday, most of the flowers were flown from Colombia and Ecuador to Miami, many in the bellies of passenger planes. There, cargo handlers and customs agents call them Cupids helpers ensure the deep red petals stay perfect until they reach their final destination. In the weeks leading up to Valentines Day, about 738 million flowers 85 percent of imported flowers come through the Miami airport. Los Angeles is a distant second, with 44 million. The roses, carnations, hydrangeas, sunflowers and other varieties are rushed by forklift from planes to chilled warehouses and then onto refrigerated trucks or other planes and eventually delivered to florists, gas stations and grocery stores across the country. The biggest problem this Valentines Day might have been the final few miles of the journey. A massive snowstorm that blanketed the east coast made some suburban roads difficult for local delivery drivers. For U.S. passenger airlines such as American, cargo is a small but increasingly important part of their business. New jets are built with more freight space and the airlines are adding new nonstop international routes popular with shippers. Most airline passengers focus on whats visible to them, like the amount of legroom and the space in the overhead bins. Few think about whats beneath the cabin floor.Theres fresh Alaskan salmon, this seasons latest luxury clothing from Milan and plenty of Peruvian asparagus heading to London. Then there are the more unusual items like human corneas, the occasional live cheetah or lion and large shipments of gold and diamonds.And there are the flowers. Valentines Day is a big day for flowers, topped only by Mothers Day, and cargo teams work extra hours ahead of both to ensure ontime deliveries.Hearts a-flutterTheres a spark in the air while loading these, says Andy Kirschner, director of cargo sales for Delta Air Lines. You know this is going to loved ones. Worldwide, airlines and air shippers carried about 52 million tons of freight representing $6 trillion worth of goods last year, according to the International Air Transport Association, the airlines trade group. That was up 1.4 percent from the prior year. The amount of air cargo is expected to climb 17 percent in the next five years. Shipping by air costs about 10 times more than by sea, says David G. Ross, a transportation analyst at Stifel. So, plane rides are reserved for trendy high-end fashion items, the hottest electronics or perishable foods and flowers. With flowers, as soon as theyre cut a clock starts ticking. And nobody wants to give wilted roses on Valentines Day. Heat is the enemy. When a plane touches down in Miami, the flowers are rushed to a nearby warehouse where a parade of forklifts carry them into giant coolers really rooms set at 35 degrees. Every time the giant cooler doors open up, fog rolls out as the frigid air hits the Florida humidity. Inside, big vacuums suck the hot air out of flower boxes and bring in the surrounding cold air. In one hour, the core temperature of flowers, vegetables or other perishables drops 46 degrees.Its like it cryogenically extends the life, says Nathaniel R. Miller, a supervisor with Perishable Handling Specialists, which operates Americans Miami coolers.Before the flowers can be sent to stores across the country, U.S. Customs and Border Protection must sign off. Agents check tax documentation, ensure that drugs arent being smuggled and inspect petals and stems for pests like moths, leaf-miner flies and spider mites, which can ruin crops in American fields. The bugs some as small as a period cant be detected by X-ray machines. So a team of agents travels from warehouse to warehouse, looking at a sample of flowers. Bouquets are turned upside down, hit on the side. Thump, thump, thump.Dirt, leaves and other debris fall onto tables covered in white paper. Magnifying loops are used to inspect the specks. Any bugs discovered are dropped into test tubes and sent off to a lab.The job has hazards: Roses come with plenty of thorns and some officers wear masks to protect against the pollen. Their uniforms include hats and gloves. Its like working in a meat locker, says Michael DiBlasi, a Customs and Border Protection agriculture specialist. We love our job. You have to, to work in a cooler.Most imported flowers come through MiamiBy SCOTT MAYEROWITZAssociated PressVALENTINES DAY Associated Press photos by J. PAT CARTERA group of U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials (top) check imported flowers at Miami International Airport.

Its hard to miss the ads t hat appear everywhere on television, in newspap ers and magazines, online and most of the Oscarn ominated films are easily seen in local theaters. But u ntil recently, it has been n early impossible to view t he short films that have b een nominated. Thankfully, the past couple of years, H ollywood has started m aking the eligible short films available for wide t heatrical release. The short-film categories animated, live-action and documentary are now p ackaged into three feat ure-length films and the r esult is that viewing the often-missed shorts is now almost as easy as seeing t he major films. The animated films are a mixed bag of ideas that r ange from amusing to surreal to confusing. They v ary in length from six to 30 minutes and while some are better than others, all sow that a good director doesnt necessarily need 90 minutes to tell a great story. Daniel Sousas Feral tells the story of a young boy raised in the wild who has trouble fitting into modern city life and soon reverts to his untamed ways. The animation is minimal, almost child-like, but effectively tells the tale with no dialogue. Disneys Get AHorse is a wonderful homage to the original Mickey Mouse cartoons that cleverly blends black and white and color animation in a fun way. From France comes Mr. Hublot, a stunning view of a mechanical world where nuts and bolts comprise almost everything, and adopting a stray pet can have unexpected consequences. Possessions is from Japan and is an artistic masterpiece of color and shape about a laborer caught in a storm who takes refuge in a seemingly abandoned temple. The most satisfying of the animated films is an adaptation of Julia Donaldsons best-selling classic childrens book Room On the Broom. It tells the story of a friendly witch who cant say no to anyone wanting to hitch a ride on her magic broom. The animation is delightfully whimsical and viewers wont be able to resist its charms. The live-action films are more emotional and moving but there are some very funny nominees, too. The most touching is Helium from Denmark. In it, a scared young boy is in hospice care and a janitor tries to ease his fear of dying by telling him about the land of Helium, a magical place that lies beyond this world. Rare will be the viewer with a dry eye after watching this one. Aquel No Era Yo (That Wasnt Me) comes from Spain and is a gutwrenching story of Spanish aid workers in Africa that is frighteningly real yet somehow hopeful. The Voorman Problem features English actors Martin Freeman (Sherlock, The Hobbit) and Tom Hollander (Hanna, Valkyrie) in a wickedly delicious tale of a problem prisoner who thinks hes God. Avant Que De Tout Perdre (Just Before Losing Everything) is a too-real story that drops viewers into the midst of a domestic-abuse case where a mother and two children are trying to escape the abusive husbands grasp. Pitk Mun Kaikki Hoitaa? (Do I Have to Take Care of Everything?) is from Finland and is the funniest by far of all the nominees. An alarm clock signals the start of a mad dash to get to the church on time for a wedding. But things arent what they seem and the result is a hilarious take on the difference between weddings and funerals. These shorts are imaginative, ingenious and inventive. Some will grab viewers better than others but they all deserve the recognition the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has given them.

Think younger.A new study finds that much of a childs weight fate is set by age 5, and that nearly half of kids who became obese by the eighth grade were already overweight when they started kindergarten. The prevalence of weight problems has long been known about a third of U.S. kids are overweight or obese. But surprisingly little is known about which kids will develop obesity, and at what age.Researchers think there may be a window of opportunity to prevent it, and we keep pushing our critical window earlier and earlier on, said Solveig Cunningham, a scientist at Emory University. A lot of the risk of obesity seems to be set, to some extent, really early in life. She led the new study, which has been published in the New England Journal of Medicine and paid for by the federal government.It tracked a nationwide sample of more than 7,700 children through grade school. When they started kindergarten, 12 percent were obese and 15 percent were overweight. By eighth grade, 21 percent were obese and 17 percent were overweight.Besides how common obesity was at various ages, researchers focused on the 6,807 children who were not obese when the study started, at kindergarten entry. Here are some things they found:Who became obese: Between ages 5 and 14, nearly 12 percent of children developed obesity 10 percent of girls and nearly 14 percent of boys. Nearly half of kids who started kindergarten overweight became obese teens. Overweight 5-year-olds were four times as likely as normal-weight children to become obese (32 percent versus 8 percent).Grade levels: Most of the shift occurred in the younger grades. During the kindergarten year, about 5 percent of kids who had not been obese at the start became that way by the end. The greatest increase in the prevalence of obesity was between first and third grades; it changed little from ages 11 to 14.Race:From kindergarten through eighth grade, the prevalence of obesity increased by 65 percent among whites, 50 percent among Hispanics, almost 120 percent among blacks and more than 40 percent among others Asians, Pacific Islanders and Native Americans and mixed-race children.By eighth grade, 17 percent of black children had become obese, compared to 14 percent of Hispanics and 10 percent of whites and children of other races.Income:Obesity was least common among children from the wealthiest families and most prevalent among kids in the next-to-lowest income category. The highest rate of children developing obesity during the study years was among middle-income families.Birth weight: At all ages, obesity was more common among children who weighed a lot at birth roughly 9 pounds or more. About 36 percent of kids who became obese during grade school had been large at birth.BY MARILYNN MARCHIONEAssociated PressTO YOUR HEALTH

KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 10B Saturday, February 15, 2014 Fishing the Florida Keys we can find beautiful blue waters with ferocious fighters such as dolphin, sailfish, marlin, kingfish, and wahoo, or anchor just off the reefs for bottom huggers such as grouper and snapper. Our fleet of deep sea fishing boats can accommodate groups of up to six people.Tarpon Creek Marina | MM 53.5 email@example.com 305.289.1332 Theres a certain protocol that my partner and son, Capt. Seth Hopp and I, exercise at the end of each fishing trip on our charter boat Premium Time out of the A&B Marina in Key West. One of us takes care of cleaning the boat and the other cleans the catch. Cleaning the boat is somewhat solitary and peaceful, allowing time to reflect. Cleaning fish, on the other hand, is like being on stage with an open microphone attached to everyone in the audience. The timing of the return dictates the amount of traffic on the dock, with happy hour being the most popular. As we back into the slip, we take a mental inventory of the people pressing against the chain that separates them from the access to our transom, knowing the questions will soon fly. We can generally tell which ones will be asked depending on the catch. Here are a few of the frequently asked questions:What kind of fish are those? This is in reference to the huge school of tarpon that swarm our transom in anticipation of the catch remnants that will most certainly be flung about the harbor. Pelicans, mangrove snappers, Goliath grouper, nurse sharks and the lone cubera snapper join in with the silver kings. As we work through the stack of fish displayed on the dock, we stop at times to hand-feed the fish. Thats when it happens. What kind of fish are those? is the first question posed. Those are tarpon. In an average evening, we might answer the same question 50 times. Very few witness the process more than a couple of times while in Key West except for those who fish multiple trips each year like the Outer Limits client Bruce Boise. Hes witnessed the verbal question-andanswer redundancies so many times that he took it upon himself to have T-shirts made with the question on the front side and the answer on the back. He said he thought he could help with the madness, but we explained we didnt mind. Bruce always tries to take care of us.Is it legal to keep grouper right now?The complexity of our regulations in the Florida Keys is due to our unique proximity to three different and separately governed fishery management agencies all with different rules (sometimes for the same species). When fishing our deeper ledges and wrecks, we commonly catch snowy grouper, one of the only legal groupers in all three fisheries allowed to be harvested in February. Not only does the strange appearance attract attention at the dock, but people that have some knowledge of Florida fish recognize the grouper characteristics.So the question is usually posed like this: Is it legal to keep grouper now? We answer with a thoroughly performed educational response that tends to be a great icebreaker. Answering Yes, you can and heres why.... breeds goodwill every time. People like their freedom, especially when it comes to grouper fishing and eating.You guys are the luckiest two on the planet. This is never a question for Seth and I. We agree that nothing is finer than the hustle and bustle of the Historic Seaport of Key West, specifically at the A&B Marina. We slide into the dock at the end of our trips and are met with awe from lovers of the salt. Sometimes they are five people deep and 20 people wide all interested in our adventures. We are the lucky ones, the ones that work on the water every day. Keep those questions coming. Capt. Marlin Scott owns FishMonster Charters in Key West.Catches at the dock bring lots of questions from onlookersMarlin Scott On TheWaterQuick Fact:Cleaning fish back at the dock is like being on stage with an open microphone attached to everyone in the audience.And the answer is...
