Council: Prayers no moreThe Marathon City Council on Tuesday voted to do away with a barely five-month-old policy allowing invocations prior to its public meetings.The policy was enacted on Dec. 11, but Mayor Dick Ramsay proposed doing away with it due to a lack of interest from clergy members in performing the premeeting prayers.The councils decision on the controversial issue came on the heels of a May 5 U.S. Supreme Court decision upholding prayer at government meetings. According to Reuters, the ruling is essentially that sectarian invocations do not automatically violate the U.S. Constitution. The Supreme Court case involved the town of Greece in upstate New York, which traditionally had Christian prayer prior to its council meetings. Public prayer is common in other governments including at Key West City Commission meetings but Reuters said the high court had never before expressly said sectarian prayers could be constitutional in some circumstances. Marathon Church of God Pastor Nick Vaughn pointed to the Supreme Court ruling and said public prayers before government meetings do not violate the First Amendment establish-Mayor contends few clergy have accepted inviteBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON KEY LARGOPhotos courtesy EMILIE STEWARTWildlife officials snare the crocodile that bit Tyson.Crocodile rocks dogA pit bulldog named Tyson escaped from an unusual crocodile attack in a Key Largo canal Tuesday.The American crocodile an aggressive juvenile male measuring about 5 feet, 6 inches was captured by state wildlife agents for relocation. Dog owner Emilie Stewart said wildlife agents told her: If it was a smaller dog or a bigger crocodile, Tyson would not have survived. As it turned out, the muscular 65-pound Tyson escaped with puncture bites on his left shoulder and ankle. He was treated by Dr. Martha Edwards at the Island Hammock Pet Hospital and released. The crocodile, weighing about 40 pounds, came up from beneath Tyson as the dog went for one of his regular midday swims in the Center Lane Canal, a waterway in the Stillwright Point subdivision off the mile marker 105.3 bayside. Tyson was bitten and pulled under, but turned to snap at the toothy reptile and broke free. As the dog swam back to a backyard boat ramp, the crocodile literally chased him, Stewart said. Stewart distracted the crocodile by snapping a towel at it while Tyson climbed out of the water. This crocodile did not act normally, Stewart said. It was a fairly little thing, but it was not afraid of humans. It was hissing at the FWC officers trying to catch it. Lindsey Hord, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission biologist in charge of dealing with South Floridas nuisance alligators and crocodiles, agreed. Usually crocodiles dont try to go after an animal bigger than they are, Hord said Wednesday. Although the circumstances are unusual, its a lesson that Florida has alligators and crocodiles. It can be dangerous for dogs near the water, but the vast majority of bites to pets are avoidable, he said. I dont let my dogs go near the water. Stewart said Tyson, age 9, has gone swimming in the backyard canal three or four days a week all his life. Ill never let him swim in there again, said the Key Largo resident since 1995. Ive gone swimming in there, too, but not again. While there are no confirmed attacks on humans by the normally docile American crocodile, Hord cautioned residents not to be ignorant of the possibilities.There are some big crocs around there, and there is a chance that one 9 feet or over could see a human as a prey item, he said.Key Largo has the highest density of American crocodiles outside ofTyson is OK after bite from bold aggressorBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org Tyson received small cuts from the aggressive crocodile.See Croc, 2AReport: Florida waters dangerousFlorida boaters bucked the national trend for water safety in 2013 and not in a good way. The number of accidents and deaths counted nationally by the U.S. Coast Guard for its 2013 Recreational Boating Statistics Report went down, but Floridas numbers moved higher. Florida waters saw 685 reported boating accidents in 2013, far and away the highest number in the United States, and an increase from the states 2012 total of 662 accidents.Florida boat-accident deaths also jumped by eight fatalities to 58 in 2013, again, highest in the country (but still the second lowest state total in the past five years).The Coast Guard report does not list the most dangerous U.S. waters by county, but the Florida Keys always top the hazard list among the 67 counties in Florida, perennially the dangerous state.In 2012, the last year for which official numbers are available, Monroe County saw 100 serious boat accidents with four deaths and 47 injuries.

Months of sewer and highway construction on U.S. 1 spawned more roadside clutter, which has taken its toll on the aesthetics of Key Largo, a community coalition says. This unsightly look, in some cases, is causing our residents to lose respect for this wonderful place, Frank Veltri, a member of the Elks Lodge in Tavernier, wrote in a May 12 letter to the Monroe County Commission. Illegal signs, trash and code violations are becoming more common.Groups including the Island of Key Largo Federation of Homeowner Associations, the Tavernier Community Association and the Elks Lodge will tell commissioners Wednesday that the time has come for a Clean Up Key Largo push.Bike lanes, highway improvements and other enhancements will be a waste of money unless the county and state begin to enforce their ordinances and regulations on sign clutter and right-of-way infringement, wrote Dottie Moses, president of the homeowners association. They say that in addition to increased action on code infractions, the county and state could do more to prevent driving or parking on newly resodded areas, and increase landscaping. The groups volunteered to take part in an advisory committee to government to make Key Largo a showcase in the Keys. The Clean Up Key Largo request is scheduled for about 11 a.m. Wednesday at the County Commissions regular meeting at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center at mile marker 102.5. Everglades National Park, Hord said. They seem to prefer bayside mangroves and creeks more than the open Atlantic Ocean waters, but they do roam. Nearly extinct a few decades ago, American crocodiles have rebounded to an estimated population of about 2,000 animals larger than hatchlings. They are a protected species, and FWC agents try not to remove a nuisance crocodile unless it measures 9 feet or longer. A 10-foot crocodile killed a Key Largo familys 65-pound dog near mile marker 103 in March 2012.Some Florida Keys residents would prefer to see all American crocodiles removed. Hord called that unrealistic.Thirty years ago, we didnt have very many crocs. Now we do, he said. We have to accept that reality, use common sense and make some lifestyle changes.Putnam: Pot wont become a cash cropThough Florida could be headed toward allowing marijuana for medical purposes, marijuana wont replace citrus or be seen growing in fields across the Sunshine State, state Agriculture and Consumer Services Com missioner Adam Putnam said Wednesday.There wont be fields of marijuana growing in Florida, Putnam said in a videotaped interview with the South Florida SunSentinel. It will be grown under roof, in controlled environments, inside, for obvious security reasons.State lawmakers have asked Gov. Rick Scott to approve a measure (SB 1030) that would help patients get access to a strain of marijuana that is high in cannabidiol (CBD) and low in euphoria-inducing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).Meanwhile, voters will be asked to approve a proposed constitutional amendment in November that would lead to broader legalization of medical marijuana. Putnam, who is opposed to the amendment, expects the proposal will garner the needed 60 percent for approval.Five nurseries statewide would get grow dealsNews Service of FloridaMEDICAL MARIJUANAA Key West business notorious for overcharging customers through their credit or debit cards is apparently at it again.James Clark Jr., 35, of Stafford, Va., reported to police on Tuesday that staff at the Adult Entertainment Club (formerly the Scrub Club) at Duval and United streets took $645 from his bank account when he authorized a woman there to swipe his debit card for only $20.Clark told police he had gone to the club when a staff member invited him in for a sex show. Once inside, he was told it would cost $150, and he paid in cash, he told police. Then a woman about 23 or 24 years old wearing a bikini invited him into a private room [and] asked him to get naked. She told Clark that a tip was expected and not covered by the $150 in cash, so he gave her his card and told her to swipe it for $20. She came back and said the clubs credit-card machine wasnt working and shed need to run it as a debit card. He gave the woman his personal identification number.She came back and, after 10 minutes, said the show was over, so he got dressed and left. He discovered the overcharges the next day. In April, a Virginia man told police the Adult Entertainment Club swiped his card for $33,000. The Keynoter reported in February 2013 that between Jan. 1, 2001, and Feb. 4, 2013, police had been called to the club 301 times. Most of the reports were for overcharges on customers cards.

In 2013, the Coast Guard counted 4,062 accidents [nationally] that involved 560 deaths, 2,620 injuries and approximately $39 million dollars of damage to property as a result of recreational boating accidents, says the federal report.Compared to 2012, the number of accidents decreased 10 percent, the number of deaths decreased 14 percent and the number of injuries decreased 12.7 percent.Floridas 685 accidents accounted for 16.8 percent of the countrys 4,062 serious on-the-water incidents.California was second with 426 accidents, and New York was third with 180. Only 11 states reported more than 100 serious boat accidents. The Coast Guard concluded that operator inattention, improper lookout, operator inexperience, excessive speed and machinery failure rank as the top five primary contributing factors in accidents.Alcohol was cited as the leading known contributing factor in fatal boating accidents, linked to 16 percent of the crashes where the cause could be determined. More than three-fourths of deaths were determined to be by drowning. Only about 12 percent of those people were wearing a life jacket. Most of the serious accidents were collisions between two boats. Sinking and capsizing also were leading causes, along with a boat hitting a fixed object. The most common types of vessels involved in reported accidents were open motorboats (46 percent), personal watercraft (18 percent) and cabin motorboats (17 percent), says the report. The number of 2013 registered recreational boats in the United States was listed as 11,993,067, nearly a 1 percent drop from 2012.Florida leads in boat crashesFrom Boating, 1ACroc population has reboundedFrom Croc, 1APuto gets extended until mid-JanuaryMike Puto will remain Marathons city manager until at least the second week of January. The City Council voted, 3-2, on Tuesday to eliminate the interim tag on Putos month-to-month contract and appoint him manager through the Jan. 13, 2015, council meeting. Puto was appointed when then-City Manager Roger Hernstadt resigned this past January and makes $10,000 monthly. Mayor Dick Ramsay proposed Putos contract amendment, citing letters of commendation from the community and support from staff. He said doing so would allow a new council (three seats are up in November) to decide whether to retain Puto or find another manager. The public as an overall is pretty happy with Mike. Our staff, and Ive talked to most of our staff, is very comfortable and working together as best they ever have, Ramsay said. Numerous residents spoke in favor of Puto at Tuesdays meeting, including Florida Keys Contractors Association President Chris Gratton, who praised Putos improve ments to the citys Building Department. Things have moved and progressed tremendously in the past couple of months. The building community is very happy with whats going on. Its running at a much higher level of efficiency, he said. Realtor Karen FarleyWilkinson was the lone voice of opposition to Puto. She said she considers Puto a friend but said hes illsuited to be city manager.Youre trying to put a square peg in a round hole. Mike had this job before. You cant keep doing the same things over and over again and expect a different result, Farley-Wilkinson said.Puto was city manager from 2005 to 2008, when he stepped down. Vice Mayor Chris Bull and Councilman Rich Keating sided with FarleyWilkinson and voted against hiring Puto on through mid-January. Bull went so far as to call the move disingenuous. Theres no termination date on his [current] contract. As long as were moving forward with trying to find a manager, he can go on forever with his current contract, Bull said. I want Mike as part of the city team for a long time, but I dont think we need to change his contract. Its fine the way it sits, he added. Following the vote to hire Puto through at least Jan. 13, Councilman John Bartus moved for the city to continue to do a search for manager candidates. That raised questions about the citys contracted Finance Department, Bishop Rosasco & Co., performing the search as scheduled. On April 22, Rosasco stepped down as the citys finance director, though his firm remains in control of city finances, amid concerns with his involvement in a hotel development project at Florida Keys Country Club. The council voted unanimously at the same April 22 meeting to explore the option of bringing its finance department in-house.As for the city manager, Councilman Mark Senmartin suggested that the roughly estimated $10,000 cost to perform a search seems like a waste because the citys Human Resources Department could do the work.The council unanimously agreed to Bartus suggestion that the search for new manager candidates begin on Sept. 1, giving a newly seated council in November a head start in the hiring process.Hell remain city manager, vote is splitBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Zieg files for City CouncilA member of the Marathon Planning Commission has filed to run for City Council in November, becoming the third filed candidate running for what will be three open seats.Dan Zieg, 61, a retired orthopedic surgeon whos lived in the Middle Keys since 1994, coming from Indiana, said hes concerned about housing for workingclass residents. He cited two new hotels with a combined 220 rooms likely to open this year in the city and another one going through the application process that could have either 80 or 109 rooms. Theres also an apartment complex planned that would have 106 units. The solution of busing people down from Homestead is a short-term fix, Zieg said. We have to retain not only the teachers and deputies, but what about construction people, the retail people, and who is going to do it but us? He added, How are we going to solve this problem? We cant convert all of the trailer parks into condos. Zieg was initially appointed to the Planning Commission by thenCouncilwoman Ginger Snead. In 2012, Dick Ramsay, now the mayor, reappointed him. Zieg is a former Monroe County Sheriffs Office reserve deputy and former board member of the Domestic Abuse Shelter. Ramsay and Councilman Rich Keating are termed-out in November after serving three two-year terms, and Councilman Chris Bulls seat is up for election. Voting is at large, meaning the top votegetters fill the open seats.

A new Monroe County government staff position could help Florida Keys property owners trim the $18 million in flood-insurance premiums they combined to pay in 2013. A recommendation to hire a floodplain administrator goes before the Monroe County Commission at its meeting May 21 at the Murray E. Nelson Govern ment and Cultural Center at mile marker 102.5. Monroe County is applying to the Federal Emergency Management Agency to join the agencys National Flood Insurance Programs community-rating system that could lower premiums if a locality acts to limit potential claims through mitigation and enforcement. That could reduce premiums significantly but the vulnerability of the Keys means a reduction of about 15 percent would be the highest likely in the near future, said county Growth Management Director Christine Hurley. But 15 percent of $18 million [about $3 million] would be a huge benefit to our citizens, Hurley said. Staff will ask commissioners to hire the floodplain administrator at an annual cost of $80,000 in salary and benefits to help prepare the rating application and conduct reviews needed to maintain or improve the rating. A consultant expected to cost $70,000 in a one-time expenditure would help prepare the program. Hurley said the position is not expected to act as a downstairs-enclosure inspector but will be required to assist and perform site visits to advise as to conditions of structure compliance. FEMA ended its spotcheck program for illegal enclosures last June, and the county has since done well on two subsequent audits, Hurley said.

Im afraid if we get rid of it, now it is infringing on my freedom of religion because youve already given me that power, he said. But Ramsay made clear his concern was lack of response to widespread invitations to the clergy more than three dozen were asked.Our city clerk and all of us have tried very hard for us to make this process work. It was more than a challenge. To date, we have had a total of four people sign up, he said.Ramsay said fair representation of the religious community is important. Any time you have a scenario youre setting up invocations, its important you try to make sure everybody has an opportunity to give an invocation, he said.The policy adopted on Dec. 11 does not spell out what specifically can be said during invocations some have been more religious than others but it does prohibit any person from performing an invocation more than three times per year.We would need at least 12 to 15 people signed up to do this, Ramsay said. I feel very strongly that everyone should follow their conscience and live a good life. I dont think we need this kind of controversy in our city. Councilmen Mark Senmartin and John Bartus voted with Ramsay to rescind the prayer resolution. From the start, Senmartin has been outspoken against prayers at meetings, choosing to stay seated during each one, while Bartus said his decision was more difficult. We certainly do need a lot more of the higher power, however you define it, in our lives, he said. But Bartus called the resolution governing invocations six pages of putting God in a little box and suggested that residents are more than welcome to have private moments of prayer during any meeting. I just believe that maybe this isnt the right time or place, he said. Councilman Rich Keating and Vice Mayor Chris Bull spoke out in favor of the prayer policy. I dont think weve given it our best effort, Keating said. Im not an especially religious person. When we set a limit [of how may times each clergy member could give the prayer], we doom this thing to failure from the get-go. We dont have the size community to realistically think we can have a different person at every meeting. Rev. Dustin Sedlak, pastor at Kirk of the Keys Presbyterian Church, said the invocation prior to Tuesdays council meeting and offered to do so in the future. Im willing to reschedule my calendar. I have a weekly Tuesday teaching I do and also date night. Im willing to renegotiate both of those, he said.Bartus: Not the right placeFrom Prayer 1A Saturday, May 17, 2014 3A Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com 4801 Overseas Highway Marathon, Florida 33050 305-289-2038LIMITED TIME May 22 to June 2, 201430%SAVE NOW Parents Who Host,Lose the Most:Dont be a party to teenage drinking is a registered trademark of Drug-Free Action Alliancewww.DrugFreeActionAlliance.orgDont be a party to teenage drinking.

Rick Scott banking much of his re-election campaign on jobs and the economy, Floridas unemployment rate ticked down slightly in April. The jobless rate was 6.2 percent last month, down from 6.3 percent in March. The rate has been relatively flat in recent months it also was 6.2 percent in February but it is significantly lower than the 7.6 percent rate in April 2013. Northwest Floridas Walton County had the lowest unemployment rate in April at 3.2 percent. It was followed by Monroe County (the Florida Keys, always among the lowest) at 3.3 percent, Okaloosa County at 4.1 percent, Alachua County at 4.3 percent and Sumter County at 4.4 percent.On the other end of the spectrum, Southwest Floridas Hendry County had the highest unemployment rate in April, at 8.4 percent. It was followed by Flagler County at 8.3 percent, Hamilton County at 8.2 percent.Scotts campaign focuses heavily on arguments that he has added jobs and improved the economy since taking office in January 2011. He also uses that message to attack Democratic front-runner Charlie Crist, a former governor who was in office as Florida struggled through the national economic recession.Scott issued a statement Friday touting the new numbers, which he said included creating more than 33,000 private-sector jobs. Aprils job creation number of more than 33,000 jobs is great news for Florida families, Scott said in the statement. With Floridas unemployment rate dropping to 6.2 percent, were succeeding in creating an opportunity economy. Despite Scotts focus on private-sector jobs, a detailed release from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity pointed to large concentrations of government workers as helping hold down jobless rates in some areas. With the military a large presence in the Keys, Monroe fits that mode. Many of the counties with the lowest unemployment rates were those with relatively high proportions of government employment, DEO said in the release.News Service of FloridaTHE WORKFORCE NURSES WEEK As part of the recent Nurses Week (May 6 to 12 as declared by the American Nurses Association), Mariners Hospital invited community members to shadow a nurse for a day.

I had a narrow escape from being rear-ended by the tailgater behind me when I stopped for pedestrians (he had to slow over into the left-turn lane to avoid hitting me). Meanwhile, the right lane of cars continued merrily on and the two women trying to cross were now stuck between lanes, which caused a beauty of a traffic snarl when the traffic signal turned green. So Im curious: Id like to hear any stories from locals who live and work here who have actually witnessed this thing working out. Anyone? Anyone? Guess its only a matter of time until we start building that monorail. Dana Rohrbach Key LargoWage theft a real threatBusinesses and workers have an explicit agreement: If an employee works a certain amount of hours for the company, he or she is guaranteed a certain salary. While workers are seriously disciplined and even fired for not performing as expected on the job, businesses in Florida are let off the hook when they fail to compensate their employees for their work. When businesses renege on their obligations to workers by failing to pay workers for overtime or pay their workers below their contract rate, that is called wage theft. Businesses are using low-wage employees work to garner profits and then turning around and stealing money from those same workers by refusing to pay them what theyve earned. Latinos disproportionately share the burden of wage theft. Regardless of legal status, Latinos are often threatened by their employers with calls to Immigration and Customs Enforcement when they ask to be paid for the work theyve completed. Businesses and contractors feel they can take advantage of immigrant fearmongering to scare low-wage workers into keeping silent about the companys illegal withholding of payments to its workers. Florida can do more to protect all workers, no matter their race or legal status, by strengthening protections for whistle blowers who alert authorities to a business illegal wage practices. Common-sense steps like these are easily implemented and would have a profound impact on the ability of workers to seek compensation for businesses failures to pay appropriate wages. Wage theft is a problem that crosses race, politics and religion, but it is of particular concern to women. Women make up the majority of tipped workers, who are a large portion of wage-theft victims, and almost a third of those are the sole parent supporting a child. When businesses fail to meet their payment obligations to their staff, they not only hurt individual workers, they steal food from the family table and school supplies from students backpacks. As women increasingly take on the role of breadwinner, they need to have the confidence they can count on their employers to follow through on their commitment to compensate workers according to contractual obligations and state law. State legislatures can do more than ensure better enforcement of current laws; they can be the catalyst for a solution to the wage-theft epidemic. Protecting workers from this type of action not only allows them to hold businesses accountable when they are cheated out of their wages, but prevent possible violations from occurring in the first place. Dwight Bullard State senator District 39 Miami, Florida Keys My first sight of stone crabs could have been when my mother and father took us to Joes Stone Crab in Miami Beach when I was very young. Im not even sure we went to Joes. But its likely. My parents loved the lifestyle of the island back in the 1950s, while they were still young and still in love. I remember some of the restaurants, but I was merely a boy. Im sure I was not likely to be digging into the claws of crabs as much as I might have sought French toast with a river of maple syrup. When I first came to Florida to live, I went clear down to Key West. I was 21. It was much more of a working fishing town than it is today. In the 1970s, the shrimp, lobster and stone crab boats still worked the harbor at Lands End Village. The first place I cooked in was a barbecue place, the Midget. We lived at a former saloon named the Red Doors. I met a guy with long blonde hair and fair skin known by the name of Yellow Bird. Many folks had nicknames in Key West then Monkey Tom, Buckets, Sideways. I met Yellow Bird behind the Half Shell Raw Bar. He had just gotten out of jail and was eager to get back his job stone crabbing. I was curious to know about life at sea, and Yellow Bird was a great guide. We drank from cold aluminum cans and enjoyed a smoke, too. He got a kick out of the fact that I was cooking. I couldnt understand why I was just a low-paid grunt laborer.I came to a barter relationship with Yellow Bird. My boss let me take home the ribs at the end of the night that hadnt sold and had sat on the grill too long to be of use. Yellow Bird was allowed to take home a few pounds of crab after each trip out. He had his fill of crabs and Id burned out on ribs. So we swapped.I asked him if he could bring me some greenies (crabs not yet cooked) sometime. The crabs were always fully cooked and iced on board the boats. I was curious to see what could be done if I made a flavored broth and steamed them in that. Though he seemed intrigued at the notion, I never did get my greenies. But I did get a lesson. He told me how the crabs reproduced. He said the male crab has to wait for the woman crab to molt (another way of saying lose her hard shell) before the male can make it with her. Its amazing to see that the male will stick around for hours, or even days, to protect her. He added, Too bad we dont see more of that up in our world. He also told me of the creatures that eat stone crabs: Stone crabs get eaten by more than humans, bro. Grouper and cobia love em. Its a trip to see a turtle snappin one in his jaws. I confessed that I didnt think I could handle being out in the dark water with no land in sight for nights on end like he could. He finished a fragrant smoke and slowly replied, I thought you were smart, Norm. The ocean is our mother. One afternoon I went to visit him on the boat. I had not realized he played the drums. His drums were the plastic buckets that were used to deliver the stone crabs to the restaurants in Key West. He played them with a fervor. He was covered head to toe in sweat, sitting shirtless out on the deck in the open sunlight. I went down to Key West the other day, just before Thursdays end of stone crab season. I ran into my old friend. He had gotten skin cancer from the life he lived. He was still going out on the water, but he had to protect himself with a hat and goggles. In fact, every inch of skin was covered. He carried on with his work. When I looked at him scuttling back and forth across the deck, all I could see of Yellow Bird were his eyes like a crab wreathed in its protective shell, evading lifes predators. Chef Norman Van Aken began his cooking career in Key West in the 1970s and once oversaw the kitchen at Tavern N Town at the Marriott Beachside. In 2012, he co-wrote My Key West Kitchen with his son Justin. He is considered the creator of whats called new-world cuisine. This is reprinted from the Miami Herald.Marathons growth in hotel rooms means lots more workers are needed, and that means housings an issueYouve all heard the tales of lottery winners who squander those massive payouts shortly after hitting the jackpot.In the mid-1980s, New Jersey native Evelyn Adams won the lottery not once, but twice, before she gambled it all away in Atlantic City. While she won a cool $5.4 million, today she lives in a trailer park. There are hundreds of similar examples of instant millionaires crumbling under the weight of riches. How could that happen? Its because that newfound wealth went to the winners heads, they threw caution to the wind when it came to spending and believed their magical ride would last forever. Not a shred of fiscal responsibility or planning. The city of Marathon may find itself in a similar rags-to-riches scenario that we hope doesnt resemble so many lottery winners ill-fated fortunes.By early 2015, Marathon will add upward of 225 hotel rooms, Prime Hospitality Groups development of a 95room Courtyard by Marriott and a 125-room Hyatt developed by the Spottswood Co. Both these projects are in full swing and each hotel will provide Marathon with much-needed rooms, as well as restaurants and retail space. Where all the employees that will be needed to staff these projects will live remains to be seen. But the prospect of these new rooms is a boon to the community.Couple that with the redevelopment of the former Key Colony Bay Motel, once a Ramada Inn, at mile marker 54, with somewhere between 80 and 109 units, and more than 300 new hotel rooms becomes likely within the next 12 to 18 months. Marathon has been short of hotel rooms for years, lacking a strong resort lure to prevent vacationers from either pulling up short in Islamorada or blowing past Marathon on the way to Key West. These development plans change the landscape dramatically and make it far easier for vacationers to find Marathon and contribute to the local economy. They will open the community to more funding in property taxes, allow more events to be staged in the Middle Keys, attract more Tourist Development Council support and lure more businesses.But the real test will be how Marathon city leaders contend with this newfound wealth. The temptation might be to sit back, watch it all unfold and have a group atta-boy.Or there could be serious discussions in advance supporting issues like affordable housing, essential to keeping these new properties functional. Alternatively, if affordable housing is not addressed, then the transportation issue has to be tackled. Because if these hotel employees cant afford to live here, we need to find a way to get them here. And the buses already bringing workers to the Keys from the mainland are full. These next few months will be crucial to whether Marathon positions itself to reap the full reward of this building boom or if well be in a perpetual back-peddle mode for years to come. This likely determines in large part whether these new rooms, in themselves, are enough to draw vacationers here. With wealth and opportunity comes responsibility. Lets hope Marathon doesnt overlook the ingredients to maximize this newfound wealth and opportunity.Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWThe new crosswalk around mile marker 100 comes up on drivers pretty quickly. There is no overhead warning light for it; such lights are on the side of the highway. GUEST COLUMNWorld-class chef finds Key Wester his inspiration VAN AKENLETTERS TO THE EDITORNo cheap housing hereJust a little FYI to developers and Marathon city officials: Since when does $10 an hour equal $2,000 monthly rent on new projects? This is the reason the working folks leave. This is surely not affordable housing. Please rethink what you are doing or all of our workforce will bus down from Homestead. Dave Harlow MarathonPriorities are skewedIt seems to me Rich Keating is the Marathon City Council member with the most common-sense approach to many things but especially regarding a new city hall. Building the facility higher with parking underneath makes better use of the property than filling in thousands of tons of dirt to bring it up to grade. Also, the meeting room seats only 150 and seems very shortsighted to me. Marathon is desperate for a place to hold events for at least 200 or more. The only option right now is Hawks Cay Resort Duck Key and they charge an arm and a leg. I would also like to address the city manager situation. I realize that Mayor Dick Ramsay prefers a local who knows the city culture, etc. But to my mind, that just opens the way for cronyism and favoritism. An outside expert can be more equitable since he or she would have no special friends who might ask for favors. I am beginning to believe the previous City Council was more open and logical than the current one, especially when it comes to priorities. Jan Burch Marathon
Google will stop looking for advertising ideas in the emails of students using a suite of the Internet companys free products tailored for schools.The changes announced Wednesday affect Googles Apps for Education service that has been offered to schools for the past seven years.Among other things, Google Inc. says it will no longer pore through Gmails sent through Apps for Education for clues about students interests. The scanning helps the Mountain View, Calif., company figure out what types of ads might appeal to the students.Although Google didnt show ads in Apps for Education unless school administrators choose to allow the commercial pitches, the company could still use the personal data collected in Gmail scanning to peddle products when students might be using other online services.More than 30 million students, teachers and administrators use the Apps for Education suite. Earning and keeping their trust drives our business forward, Bram Bout, Googles director of education, wrote in a blog post. We know that trust is earned through protecting their privacy and providing the best security measures. Googles habitual scanning of Gmail had become the focal point of a federal lawsuit alleging the practice violated users privacy. The case included claims by students at the University of Hawaii and the University of the Pacific in Stockton, Calif., that they were required to use Apps for Education as part of their enrollment in schools.U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh dealt the lawsuit a setback last month when she denied a request to certify it as a class action representing tens of millions of Gmail users.Googles scanning of Gmail in schools also had been facing questions about whether it violated the 40year-old Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, which is meant to protect student privacy.Bouts blog post didnt cite the legal issues facing Gmailscanning in his blog post outlining the revisions to Googles Apps for Education policies.Google executives are always pushing the limits and only back off when their hands are caught in the cookie jar, said John Simpson, privacy project director for Consumer Watchdog, a group that has railed against Googles datacollection practices for years.Google is also removing the option that allowed school administrators to show Gmail ads when students were using Apps for Education.

Its almost summer in the Keys, and for police that means time to be on the lookout for more thieves trying to steal boats and other marine equipment. There has been a string of boat thefts in the Upper Keys the past couple of weeks, and Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputies last Tuesday arrested one of two alleged crooks who were caught in the act trailing a stolen flats boat parked near Abels Marina at mile marker 84.3. Ricardo Jimenez, 48, of Cape Coral remains in the county jail on $70,000 bond and faces charges of grand theft, driving on a suspended license, fleeing police and obstruction of justice. His partner, whom police did not identify, got away. Sheriffs Office Maj. Lou Caputo credits catching Jimenez, as well as two other alleged boat thieves weeks earlier by Bud N Marys Marina, to an observant public. But he also said thefts would decrease significantly if more people locked away and secured their belongings.As you know, theres always someone out there looking for opportunities to steal boats, motors, rod and reels and anything not secured, Caputo said. First thing we need is for the public to do their part by locking up and securing property. The next thing we need is for the public to call whenever they see or hear something that is suspicious or out of place.Caputo said the Sheriffs Office was able to clear a number of other marine equipment theft cases as a result of the Bud N Marys arrest.Crime fighting is a partnership between the community and the police, and we need each other in order to make our community safe, Caputo said. The Sheriffs Office also scored a big bust in late April after arresting three MiamiDade County men Hector Torres, Alfredo Melian Casanova and Kristofer Lluis, all 18 who admitted to stealing fishing equipment up and down the Keys during over three months. Torres, from Kendall, has since been released from jail. But Lluis and Melian Casanova together face more than 60 felony theft counts and, as of Thursday, were still in county jail on $121,000 and $261,000 bond respectively. Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Deputy Becky Herrin said the men told detectives they sold the stolen fishing gear at the Homestead Flea Market.Uptick bodes badlyDespite these thefts and arrests, Detective Sgt. Mark Coleman said the county isnt necessarily experiencing a rise in these types of crimes. But in other parts of South Florida, there is an increase, he said. Other counties are seeing an uptick in these crimes, which means it is only a matter of time before thieves try to strike here in Monroe County, Coleman said.Coleman said thieves targeting businesses often come in during the day posing as customers to get a good look at the type of security the store has, and to case the place for merchandise. They come back later to steal, often cutting a hole in a chain link fence.Coleman recommends businesses install good perimeter lighting, cut back brush and trees surrounding their property and post operational security cameras around the lot. Dogs on the property also act as a deterrent to would-be thieves, Coleman said. Sheriff Rick Ramsay said deputies will inspect home and business security measures upon request.

Freeman, C.P.C.U.294-2542In Florida Call Toll-free 1 (800) 292-2542513 Southard Street, Key West FWS: Cats have no place in refugeThe superintendent of the Crocodile Lake National Wildlife refuge stressed to Upper Keys business leaders Wednesday the importance of controlling the areas feralcat population. Superintendent Jeremy Dixon told members of the Upper Keys Rotary Club at their meeting at the Key Largo Hilton that the increasing cat population spreads diseases such as rabies, hookworm and toxoplasmosis. The latter is of particular concern in the Keys because cat feces runs off into the water and marine mammals are susceptible to the toxoplasmosis parasite. But more importantly, the stray cats are wiping out native Keys species like the Key Largo woodrat, Dixon said, a species found only in the Crocodile Lake refuge. Responding to complaints from outdoor cat owners upset about a cat trapping program implanted last year, Dixon said the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has reached out to them and offered to help build outdoor enclosures, known as catios. Cat owner and dive-shop owner Spencer Slate, who lives across State Road 905 from the refuge, said his cats have been trapped in a wooded lot adjacent to his house, which is not in the refuge.Dixon maintains that the cats wandered across 905 and onto the refuge. He said the 6,700-acre protected area is the only place traps are placed. Slate and other outdoor cat owners and advocates also say they have never seen woodrats or feral cats on refuge land. Dixon said that is because both animals are nocturnalThats why people dont see either in the refuge during the day, he said. Dixon said the rats are being killed while they are building their intricate nests.Woodrats dwindlingFlorida International Uni versity researchers recently found seven woodrat starter nests in the 6,700-acre (650 in open water) refuge. In 1980, there were about six nests per acre. There is some question of where did they all go, Dixon said. Slate and others say the woodrats natural predators other than cats have more to do with the decreased populations. They point to a 2010 experiment in which 15 woodrats were released on Palo Alto Key, where no feral cats live. The radio-tagged rats were quickly killed by snakes, owls and other creatures that live on the island north of Key Largo. But Dixon said the results of the cat-trapping program are hard to argue with. Since last year, he said 36 cats were nabbed in the refuge. Thats pretty significant, he said.KEY LARGOCops: Expect a spike in crimeBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comCRIME FRONTGOTTA DANCE Marathon High School students, in a program called Health Opportunities through Physical Education (H.O.P.E.), gather following their May 8 performance in a Dancing Classrooms show.

Column, 2BBSports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Brossard named all-conferenceFormer Marathon High School tennis standout Marisa Brossard dominated the competition during her time in a Dolphins uniform. Now a junior at Division I St. Bonaventure University in upstate New York, the Keys native has continued to perform well against Atlantic 10 Conference foes. Brossard, who turns 21 on May 26, finished the 2014 season with a 15-5 singles record and was named last Monday to the womens tennis all-conference second team. The vote is done by the leagues head coaches. Brossard played in the No. 1 and No. 2 singles slot for the Bonnies this season, with their top win coming in Annapolis, Md., against a Naval Academy team that finished 21-8 this season. Brossard won (6-4, 6-1) in her No. 1 singles match against the Midshipmen. Brossard also notched the Bonnies lone singles win over a Duquesne University opponent in the first round of the A-10 championships. The team finished with a 613 record. According to the St. Bonaventure womens tennis website, Brossard at one point during the season won eight straight times in matches against Siena, Army, Slippery Rock, IUP, NJIT, Saint Josephs, Navy and Loyola.But the senior-to-be Brossard is performing well in the classroom as well on the tennis court at St. Bonaventure. Shes been named to the colleges Deans list in five of her six terms. She is majoring in journalism and mass communications and recently scored a prime internship in New York City at ABCs The View television talk show.Brossard is home in the Keys on break for now, but takes off for New York on May 28. The internship begins on May 29 and Brossard said shes subletting a room in an apartment on the Upper West side of Manhattan. I am going to be shadowing producers and helping editors put the show together, she said. Brossard noted that her experience on the tennis court helped her beat out more than 1,500 applicants for one of six internships with the show. During my interview they asked me [what set me apart] and I talked about how much I learned from tennis, she said. I can manage a lot of tasks and be an athlete and still get good grades. Its tough at times. Brossard said shes focusing on video production in her studies and hopes the internship leads to a fulltime job with ABC after graduation in 2015.Former Fin playing net for the BonniesBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comTENNISPhoto courtesy ST.

However, we locals understand that summer means even lighter-weight materials in sweat-proof fabrics that will keep us cool for the hot months ahead. Here are several wardrobe essentials for the sweltering season ahead.Bright clutchLet your accessories speak this summer with a brightly hued or patterned clutch. Add a clutch to a basic ensemble such as a black dress or shorts and T-shirt for a pop of color. Try switching up your normal go-to handbag by swapping it for a clutch. Its amazing what a cute clutch will do to make you feel more confident about what youre wearing.The Waters Edge Gift Cottage at 95175 Overseas Highway in Key Largo has a great assortment of summer clutches priced around $30.SunglassesIn the Florida Keys, sunglasses are a fashion accessory that gets worn daily. Its also an accessory that you can never have enough of. All that wear makes them easy to lose, scratch and break. So if you find a pair of sunglasses you love, buy more than one pair. I love buying sunglasses in multiple styles and colors to match to my outfit of the day. The Miss Monroe Boutique at 81868 Overseas Highway in Islamorada at the Village Square at the Trading Post shopping area has a great selection of sunglasses in a variety of shapes and colors and range from $18 to $24. At that price, you can afford to buy one of each.SandalsNew sandals are a summer must-have. I love updating my wardrobe with a fun new print, style or color. The D-Luxe Boutique carries a variety of styles in neon pink, white and black with gold accents and wedge sandals for dressier occasions. Summer is also a good time to review the sandals already in your closet. If theyre falling apart, it may be time to replace them. Try the D-Luxe Boutique at 80925 Overseas Highway in Islamorada. Sandals start at $18 and everything in the store is under $50.JewelryMost summer fashions tend to have simpler designs for easy wear in warmer weather. Shorts worn with tank tops and long solid-colored maxi dresses need a bold necklace to create interest your ensemble. If you dont already own a few, consider investing in one. If you wear a lot of blue, then try finding one in yellow or turquoise to add another color to your outfit. Terra Nova at 712 Duval St. in Key West carries of line of jewelry called Nature Bijoux made out of natural components such as coral, leather and zebu horn. This jewelry line is meant to start a conversation; when worn, everyone will be asking about your beautiful jewelry.Maxi dressMaxi dresses are the most comfortable summer staple. They arent too fitted so they will keep you cool and breezy light-weight fabrics are comfortable year round. Maxi dresses have the added benefit of looking effortless. Pair one with wedges and a clutch for a night out or wear it with sandals and a necklace for day. The Wild Lily Boutique located at 81933 Overseas Highway in Islamorada has an abundance of maxi dresses available in a variety of colors, prints and textures.Fashion showOn May 22, the Village Square at the Trading Post will host whats called the Sizzling Summer Fashion Show featuring summer fashions from Miss Monroe, Wild Lily and D-Luxe Boutique. The event will start at 6 p.m. with the actual fashion show starting at 8 and will include a complimentary champagne bar, mojito bar, cigar lounge and cigar roller, light hors dhoeuvres by Bad Boy Burrito and lots of giveaways.

Coming soon to a freezer aisle near you: Balsamic vinegar ice cream. Plus, hot sauce ice cream. And maybe even tomato. Youre seeing the same kinds of trends in ice cream that youre seeing in otherfoods, says Peggy Armstrong, spokeswoman for the International Dairy Foods Association. People are willing to experiment. Just a generation ago, Americans mostly bought their ice cream at the supermarket in recognizable flavors that occasionally sported chocolate chips or a swirl of some kind. Today, regular old ice cream has been joined by boutique items such as gelato, sorbet and water ice, as well as an army of flavors that seem more at home in an Italian restaurant opal basil lemon sorbet, anyone? than in your local freezer aisle. Americans ate nearly 1.6 billion gallons of ice cream and other frozen dairy desserts in 2012. But traditional ice creams share of that market has been shrinking, edged out by specialty items such as frozen yogurt and gelato. In 2012, production of regular ice cream hit its lowest point since 1996, the Dairy Foods Association says, hitting fewer than 900 million gallons. Boutique scoop shops and artisanal producers have flooded the landscape during the past five to 10 years, introducing audiences to a wider range of flavors and textures. Cumin and honey butterscotch, salty vanilla, and pumpernickel are typical of Jenis Splendid Ice Creams, an Ohio-based producer that has gone national. Uber-hip Coolhaus, which has parlayed ice cream trucks and storefronts into distribution in 2,000 supermarkets, offers Cuban cigar, spicy pineapple-cilantro and even fried chicken and waffle ice cream. The flavor we thought nobody would buy was balsamic fig mascarpone, and thats the one were out of, Coolhaus co-founder Natasha Case says about the companys recent experience at a trade show. All the buyers want that one. Two years ago, we were out of vanilla. That buyer at that show who does five to 300 grocery chains wants to know whats cool, whereas before they just wanted to know that you could do vanilla well. Vanilla remains supreme, Armstrong says, but the mass-market producers represented by her organization are branching out. At the associations annual ice cream technology conference in April, producers showcased flavors such as Mexican-spiced chocolate and hot sauce ice cream. Ice cream flavors such as caramel popcorn, coffeeand-doughnuts, cotton candy and peanut butter smores also are destined for supermarket shelves. Though we are in an intense period of flavor experimentation, the desire to go beyond chocolate, vanilla and strawberry dates to the post-World War II era, says Laura B. Weiss, author of Ice Cream: A Global History. Thats when Howard Johnson, known for his roadside restaurants, tried to convince Americans to indulge in his famous 28 flavors. Among them: Maple walnut, burgundy cherry and fruit salad. This was really pretty revolutionary, Weiss says. Going beyond chocolate, vanilla and strawberry really began with Howard Johnson. Even todays most exotic-sounding new flavors make sense on some level. Candied sweet potato, a flavor being explored by Parker Products in Fort Worth, Texas, has its roots in Southern sweet potato pie. Ice cream behemoth Haagen-Dazs recently launched tomato ice cream in Japan, as well as a carrotorange flavor. And why not, says Jeni Britton Bauer of Jenis Splendid Ice Creams.

KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 4B Saturday, May 17, 2014 REDLAND FRUIT & SPICE PARK24801 S.W. 187th Avenue, Homestead, Floridawww.redlandorchidfestival.orgPresented byREDLAND ORCHID FESTIVALS, INC. May 17th-19th 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Growing up: Is it growing old?Neighbors, rated R, 96 minutes, playing in Tavernier and Key West. Neighbors, directed by Nick Stoller Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek) and starring Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne and Dave Franco, at first glance is a typical frat-house comedy. Its filled with the staples of this genre: Sex, drugs, nudity, alcohol, sex toys and enough foul language to make a sailor blush. But this campus comedy has a twist that makes it just a little more mature than most of its predecessors. The film explores the age-old dilemma of trying to stay young while growing out of the wild and crazy antics of youth. Rogen (This Is The End, Guilt Trip) and Byrne (The Place Beyond the Pines, Bridesmaids) play new parents Mac and Kelly, who try to befriend the Delta Psi fraternity that has just moved in next door. Efron ( Again, High School Musical) and Franco (Warm Bodies, Jump Street) are the frat leaders, Teddy and Pete, best buddies who are heading down vastly different paths to the future. At first, the neighbors seem to get along as Mac and Kelly join the party and briefly relive their own college days. The neighboring households bond and make a pact to never involve the police. But a few days later, things turn sour when the noise next door keeps the baby awake and Mac and Kelly break their promise about calling the police. All-out war breaks out between them and the silly pranks played on each other get more outrageous and more dangerous. Something has to give will it be the fraternity or the new parents next door? Neighbors may give college-age viewers something to think about as it looks at how students must balance the party life and academics and how that balance may affect their future. Pete seems to be outgrowing the frat life and has a bright future as an architect. But Teddy slowly realizes that his own prospects are not quite so promising and maybe he should have hit the books a little more. Meanwhile, Mac and Kelly dont want to feel old but have outgrown the college scene and are determined to be responsible parents. And they cant help wondering if just the fact that they are parents automatically makes them old. This view of the challenges of responsibility and adulthood is what sets Neighbors apart from previous raunch-filled college movies. Unfortunately, its not enough. Viewers expecting a laugh-fest may be disappointed. There are laughs sprinkled throughout the film but much of the humor is based on shock value, is simply not funny or is downright uncomfortable. The sight gags have been done before and the Judd Apatow influence is apparent, with plenty of penis jokes, sex toys, condoms and naked bodies. The low point has to be the breastmilking scene between Mac and Kelly, which will have proponents of breastfeeding cringing in their seats. Neighbors is appropriately R-rated but thankfully the movie isnt as gross and obscene as others in this category. The much soughtafter demographic of 18to 34-year-olds will enjoy the film because theyve grown up with this type of pushthe-boundary film and are accustomed to the gross-out humor. But if you are uncomfortable with vulgar and explicit films like This Is The End and Knocked Up, then this might not be the movie for you. Its up to each viewer to decide if that makes them old or not.Neighbors hits, misses on the questionMOVIE REVIEW Zac Efron barbecues in Neighbors.
