Also going into the dust pile: The days of dialing seven-digit telephone numbers within Monroe County. A countdown to issuing 786 area codes for new phone numbers in the Keys started ticking Thursday when the Florida Public Service Commission approved an extension of the 786 code from Miami-Dade County into Monroe. Theres just not enough numbers. Things down there are getting in bad shape, said Dick Durbin, a PSC spokesman. Mandatory 10-digit dialing (area code plus regular phone number) becomes mandatory, even for neighborhood calls within the Keys, on April 18, 2015. Next June, new telephone numbers beginning with the 786 area code will start being issued to Keys homes and businesses seeking new telephone lines. Were all used to 305 and reluctant to see a change like this, said Ryan Elwell, manager of Royal Furniture and the Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerces chairman-elect. But unfortunately, it was going to happen at some point, said Elwell, a Keys native who has always been a 305. Ill always be a 305 inside, he said. All telephone lines now having a 305 area code will keep them. But if next year you get a second phone line at the same building, it will be a 786. The 305 area code has become slang for South Florida, and inspired singer Pitbulls 2004 song Anthem that declares till I die! An additional area code is needed because of the Keys growing population and the increased use of multiple phones, especially wireless, PSC Chairman Art10-digit dialing is coming here in June 2015TECHNOLOGYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgDOT taking out parkingThe Florida Department of Transportation is engaged in a full-on campaign to take back right of way from businesses along U.S. 1. The problem is, many of the establishments were under the impression for decades that the land in question was theirs. Its frightening. I think its a shakedown of Keys businesses, land and business owner Tanya Cleary said. They knew we had no choice but to use this right of way. We have for decades used it for parking.The issue came to a head Wednesday when FDOT bulldozers ripped up the front parking lot of Harriettes Restaurant at mile marker 95.7. FDOT gave Harriettes owner Harriette Mattson a courtesy notification one day earlier informing her that a wrecking crew was on its way.Mattson has known the spaces were FDOTs since she bought the restaurant in 1982, but for the past three decades the state didnt seem to mind. That changed in February 2012 when FDOT blocked off the spaces with plastic, flexible delineators. That outraged many members of the community, as well as several of Mattsons fellow business owners. Within months, the barriers were down and customers were again parking in the spaces.Mattson said Wednesday that she has been paying FDOT $129 a month for the past six months to use the spaces, and shes offered to buy the tiny area from the state.They sent the last check back, she said. The spaces are on FDOT right of way and theyre taking it. FDOT plans to build a median bordered by a 6-inch curb where the front parking lot was located. Maria A. Llanes, the FDOT right of way manager who sent Mattson the July 8 e-mail, said Mattson did not comply with part of the lease agreement stating it was her responsibility to put landscaping where FDOT is nowHarriettes is the first victim of agency bulldozersBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comUPPER KEYSKeynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWA wrecking crew destroys the front parking lot of Harriettes Restaurant in Key Largo Wednesday.Cops wont probe Keys mans deathAn Upper Keys man died July 4 in North Carolina the day after riding an all-terrain vehicle into a metal cable that someone slung across a path between two trees. But the Swain County (N.C.) Sheriffs Office said it is not investigating despite the possibly of malicious circumstances surrounding the mans death. Authorities told Shane Hamiltons family and friends that the wire was meant to be some sort of delineator of private property and that Hamilton was knowingly or unknowingly trespassing when he drove his ATV through the path.But in photos given to The Reporter the cable appears to be an almost-concealed booby trap, hung over the path about a foot off the ground. Covering just the few feet of width between the two trees, it looks nothing like a makeshift fence or marker roping off property boundaries.There are no no trespassing signs or any indicators people on the land would face a physical boundary.Swain County Sheriff Curtis Cochran did not return e-mails and phone calls for this report. Chief Deputy Jason Gardner would not comment beyond saying there will be no investigation and that the case is closed.Mark Page, Hamiltons friend and business partner, traveled to Swain County to drive Hamiltons wife Karrissa and his two children back home to Key Largo. He said the local authorities did not seem interested in finding out why the cable was placed across the path. The cops I talked to were not very helpful at all, said Page, owner of Page Excavating.

The council wasted little time approving a project that was recommended by Planning Director George Garrett and unanimously approved on June 16 by the citys advisory Planning Commission. According to the site plan, nine of the 14 singlefamily homes would be built along the Atlantic Ocean on the 5.08-acre property. The remaining six would form a semi-circle to allow for a central community area. The convenience store, dockage, fuel pumps and boat ramp would be adjacent (to the east) to the homes. Mayor Dick Ramsay said hes thrilled to see the project move forward. Im thrilled that both entities were able to join forces and were looking forward to seeing 14 nice homes on property, he said.

The new base rate would be $60,000 per year, while Mayor Dick Ramsay said he was on pace to collect $166,000 in the current fiscal year.However, please be advised that if additional services are approved and requested, this amount could change, Rosasco wrote. Rosasco told the Keynoter the reason for separate contracts is because of major fluctuations in the workload to manage $130 million worth of loans, grants and contracts related to the citys largely completed sewer and stormwater projects. The contract reductions are the result of a meeting Rosasco had last week with Puto and Ramsay, which came about due to comments made by Vice Mayor Chris Bull and Councilman John Bartus at the July 8 council meeting. Bull and Bartus indicated theyd spoken with Rosasco prior to that meeting and that he was willing to reduce his rate. For more on this story, go to www.KeysInfoNet.com.

Page fielded questions on their behalf this week.As of press time, it was not clear who owns the property where Hamilton met his death. Hamilton, 45, was driving the ATV on a wooded trail near the cabin he and his family rented in the western North Carolina county. His 10-yearold son, Shane Jr., was riding on the back of the ATV.According to Page, the wire caught the ATVs front tires just minutes into the trip. As the fast-moving vehicle kept moving forward, the wire made its way over the handlebars and struck Hamilton below the ribcage. His son flew over Hamiltons shoulders and missed the wire. He was not hurt. The photos given to The Reporter show pieces of the ATV hanging from the wire.Swain County Emergency Medical Services Coordinator David Breedlove said an ambulance was sent to the scene around 5:30 p.m. July 3. A helicopter ambulance flew Hamilton to Mission Health Hospital in Asheville, N.C. It is about 15 to 20 minutes away by helicopter and its the closest trauma center to Swain County, Breedlove said.Hamilton died in the hospital July 4. Mission Health spokeswoman Jerri Jameson said she could not comment on the extent of Hamiltons injuries. The Reporter requested an autopsy report from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services on Wednesday. The report had not been received by Thursday afternoon. Assistant Swain County District Attorney Jim Moore said the DAs office typically does not conduct separate investigations from the Sheriffs Office. Were not able to bring charges ourselves, Moore said. Our investigators supplement what law enforcement has done first. Despite his statement, that doesnt appear to be the case. For example, Monroe County State Attorney Catherine Vogel has asked a Keys grand jury to look into the death of Michigan resident Charles Eimers, who died late last year after being taken into Key West police custody on a traffic charge. Cops wont investigateFrom Hamilton, 1A placing the median. They never followed through, Llanes said.Nancy Yankow, Mattsons attorney, called FDOTs actions disgusting.You can bet this is going to result in legal fireworks and extraordinarily negative publicity, Yankow said. Cleary owns two lots on the bay side of mile marker 99.2, land thats home to three separate businesses. FDOT sent her a letter about a year ago saying some of her property is encroaching on state right of way. A building constructed decades ago sits on some of the right of way in question. What are they going to do, Cleary asked. Are they really going to bulldoze our building? Llanes said she is not familiar with Clearys property, and that the case is being managed by a different FDOT official. Llanes said she could also not answer the question of why FDOT is reclaiming rights of way after years of inaction. Some property owners who spoke to The Reporter said they built their buildings decades ago, submitted their plans to the county, were approved and were never told any part of their property belonged to FDOT.Llanes said it is the property owners responsibility, not the county, to verify no part of their land is right of way.Regardless of whos responsible, FDOTs latest action against Mattsons business is not sitting well with many in the Keys, who are already frustrated with an agency they say has no regard for the Monroe County public.I am totally disheartened with our government from Washington down to our state and local county, said John Fernandez of Islamorada. Why not work with Harriette to help her keep her business going after being there for so many years?Monroe County Mayor Sylvia Murphy said she doesnt see what can be done to stop FDOT.Its unfortunate, but I dont know what anybody can do about it. It happens to be [FDOT] property, and they have the legal right to use their property, Murphy said. State Rep. Holly Raschein said she is meeting with FDOT District 6 Adminis trator Gus Pego later this month to discuss the issue.There has to be some balance, and we have to figure out a way how were going to help these businesses, Raschein said.Staff writer Kevin Wadlow contributed to this report.DOT gives no reasonFrom FDOT, 1APapers do well in contestThe Keynoter and The Reporter fared well Friday when the Florida Press Association announced the winners of its Better Weekly Newspaper clips contest for calendar year 2013.

Overall, there were 1,700 entries judged by members of the press associations from New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia.Trade group gives them 10 awardsMEDIAKeynoter StaffJudge: Clarks a flight riskFormer Cay Clubs Resorts and Marina executives Dave Clark and Cristal Coleman Clark, both held in federal custody as a serious risk of flight, were expected to enter pleas during their formal arraignment on felony charges Friday in Key West.Details of the arraignment before U.S. District Court Judge Lurana Snow were pending at press time.In a July 2 decision, Snow ordered Fred Davis Clark Jr., 56, and Cristal R. Clark, 40, to be jailed until their trial on counts of mail and wire fraud, and obstruction of justice.The court specifically finds that there are no conditions ... which reasonably will assure the defendants appearance as required, Snow wrote in separate orders for each. Charges in the case stem from the Clarks management of CMZ Group Ltd., a Cayman Islands firm that operates a string of Caribbean pawn shops. They are charged with using two Key Largo bank accounts, opened during the Cay Clubs era, to illegally siphon off money from CMZ revenues.The Clarks do not face any direct counts linked to Cay Clubs (he was president, his wife Cristal was a managing member and affiliate agent), which the feds have called a $300 million Ponzi scheme that ripped off 1,400 people. Its collapse in 2008 left hundreds of Florida Keys workers without jobs. A civil fraud case lodged by the Securities and Exchange Commission over the resort developers failure was dismissed in June because prosecutors failed to act before a deadline in the statute of limitations. However, Snow cited the Clarks links to Cay Clubs in her order for pretrial detention. Government evidence establishes that monies obtained from later investors in Cay Clubs were used to pay earlier investors in a classic Ponzi scheme which eventually caused the collapse of Cay Clubs, the judge wrote. The Clarks passports have been revoked, and their $2.2 million deposited in a Honduran bank account ... has been frozen, the detention order says. Other information in the detention order: When the SEC filed its 2011 fraud case over Cay Clubs, the Clarks lived in Grand Cayman. Witnesses told investigators that Dave Clark, in fear of an asset seizure, moved his family overnight from the Cayman Islands to Roatan.Learning that arrest warrants were issued as part of the November 2013 indictment in the CMZ case, the Clarks failed to appear for appointments to normalize their status in Honduras.Dave Clark was arrested June 17 as he tried to enter Panama. When Honduran officers went to take Cristal Clark into custody, Cristal locked herself inside her home in Roatan but eventually agreed to go with Honduran authorities.Passports gone, $2.2 million account frozenCAY CLUBS COLLAPSEBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org C.

Residents will keep their existing number, especially important to businesses and their customers.Florida Keys residents have battled successfully for more than a decade to preserve local sevendigit dialing. The state planned to expand the 786 area code, now used along with 305 in Miami-Dade County, into the Keys by 2001. Residents complained, and the PSC paid attention. In 2005, the PSC agreed to delay the Keys areacode expansion for as long as possible, but expected it to change by 2009.They thought it was going to run out years ago, Durbin said. A lot of [mobile phone companies] got big blocks of telephone numbers to assign but many of them went out of business. Thats one reason weve been able to hold off for so long.Now the cache of 305 numbers about 7.92 million of them is expected to run dry by the spring of 2015, according to the North American Number ing Plan Administration, the agency that oversees such things.On the upside, notes the PSC, the letters for 786 spell out: SUN.10-digit dialing coming in 2015 Four finalists for Keys judgeA Keys committee of attorneys has recommended to Gov. Rick Scott four applicants to replace David Audlin on the Monroe County Circuit Court bench. Wednesday, Bob Shillinger sent Scott the names of county Judge Wayne Miller and assistant state attorneys Manny Madruga and Mark Wilson to be considered to replace David Audlin, who resigned May 9 two years into second six-year term. Audlin cited invasion of privacy into his private life as the reason. Shillinger chairs the 10member Keys Judicial Nominating Commission, charged by state law with recommending applicants when there are vacancies on the bench. From a list of 12 applicants, Shillinger, on behalf of the commission, had sent Scott the commissions three finalists. Scott immediately sent the list back, asking for three more names. After four hours of deliberations Friday, the commission added just one, Key West attorney Tim Koenig. Now Scott has 60 days to appoint Audlins successor. His choices (unless he asks for more names again):Koenig, 54, of Key West, managing partner of the Keonig, Highsmith and Van Loon law firm. Koenig graduated from Florida State Universitys law school.Madruga, 48, of Key West, chief assistant Monroe County state attorney. Madruga earned his law degree from the University of Miamis law school. Hes been with the State Attorneys Office since 1990.Miller, 61, of Key West, a Monroe County Court judge since 1989. He was an assistant Keys state attorney from 1981 until his initial election.Wilson, 46, of Key West, an assistant Monroe state attorney. Wilson, single, is a U.S. Army veteran and former state trooper in Wyoming .IN THE COURTSKeynoter StaffLawyer popped for snorting cokeSome legal advice, especially for attorneys: Dont possibly flush your career down the toilet by being found by a cop snorting cocaine in a conveniencestore bathroom. That, says the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, happened around 10 p.m. Tuesday at the Circle K store on Big Coppitt Key. The alleged snorter, Miami lawyer Kenneth Kukec, faces several felony charges. Kukec has since been released on bond. The Sheriffs Office says sergeants Evan Calhoun and Linda Mixon were inside the Circle K when Calhoun decided he need to use the bathroom. When he opened the door, he saw a man sitting backward on the toilet snorting something off the back of the toilet. Calhoun turned around, walked out of the bathroom and told Mixon there was a guy snorting drugs off the tank of the toilet. Calhoun and Mixon waited for Kukec, 61, to come out and, when he did, handcuffed him, telling him this was a drug investigation. Calhoun shined a flashlight up Kukecs nose and could see the white in color powdery substance in the nostrils walls and hairs of the nose, according to the arrest report. Calhoun then checked Kukecs pockets and found in them an open pocket knife and a small plastic bag containing cocaine. A later swab of the bathroom toilet turned up cocaine, the report says. Calhoun also found in the back of Kukecs shorts a zippered pouch containing 10 syringes, more cocaine, a pill crusher and three bottles of various types of pills that later were determined not to be prescribed to Kukec.Then the cops checked Kukecs rental car, which was parked at the gas pumps, and found in a briefcase inside it four bottles containing more pills, also not in Kukecs name.The pills, 39 in total, turned out to be Oxycodone, morphine and hydromorphine. The cocaine, less than a gram, has a street value of around $50, Calhoun wrote. Kukec was charged with possession of cocaine, four counts possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, four counts possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting arrest. He was taken to jail. Florida Bar records show Kukec was admitted to practice law in Florida in 1986 and hasnt had any disciplinary actions against him the past 10 years.

Of those, 23 lobster apparently had been speared (illegal) and 25 were below the legal size limit. Gomez Lastra was arrested in October 2011 on a felony count of molesting a crawfish trap. After years of discovery and postponements, that case was scheduled to start trial Monday before Acting Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker.Gomez Lastra has been ticketed three times previously in 2014, twice for not having a proper boat registration and once, on July 4, for not staying within 100 feet of a dive flag.On Thursday near Sawyer Key, FWC Officer Dodd Bulger reported seeing a snorkeler later identified as Gomez Lastra toss several lobster tails into an 18-foot open fisherman boat operated by Ruiz Lorenzo. As several officers approached the boat, Gomez Lastra pulled three bags out of the boat and dropped them underneath the boat, officers wrote. Lt. Roy Payne used snorkel gear to recover three bags holding wrung tails and a pole spear. Both men were charged with possessing speared, separated and undersized lobster taken out of season. A count of interfering with wildlife officers also was lodged. The boat and gear was seized for possible forfeiture. Both men were held without bond in the Monroe County jail at press time Friday.One suspect has charge back in 2011CRIME FRONT Photo courtesy FWCThis is the illegal haul marine officers found in the Lower Keys.

Tarpon Harbour, as it will be known, would consist of 53 twoand three-bedroom duplexes. Of the 106 units, 44 would be market-rate and 62 would be for incomebased workforce housing. The council was unwilling in late May to grant Eastwinds request for 19 market-rate units, but did agree to part with 43 affordable-housing permits from its pool of 80-plus.On Tuesday, the council met Eastwind in the middle and agreed to borrow forward nine market-rate permit allocations, provided the developer secures 10 on the open market. Thats in addition to 25 rights it obtained in purchasing the 12.86-acre parcel.The building allocations would come via the citys Building Permit Allocation System, whereby it can dole out as many as 12 marketrate and three affordable units twice per year.Tarpon Harbour would be allowed to use all nine market-rate permits immediately, but the city would award them by setting aside one unit in each of the next nine months.In addition, the council approved strict provisions written by Planning Director George Garrett for borrowing forward units. He suggested projects be more than 50 percent affordable units, that those units be deed-restricted in perpetuity, no vacation rentals are allowed and leases of at least 181 days are required for each unit.33rd StreetIn other council business Tuesday, Garrett revealed the results of a land survey conducted on 33rd Street in Marathon to determine which government entity owns property on that block. The city has long expressed interest in either tearing down or refurbishing the Marathon Jaycees building on 33rd into a community center of some kind. The County Commission in June 2013 didnt support conveying its adjacent AARP building to the city, which offered to let the county continue its senior services in perpetuity, free of charge, in the proposed new building. According to the survey, the county and city property lines meet in the middle of the AARP building. Thus, realignment of these properties will be necessary at some point in the future, Garrett wrote in his staff report. In addition, Garrett noted the city would pursue U.S. 1 improvements in the area given Monroe Countys plan to construct a new library at U.S. 1 and 35th Street.They include creating a four-way intersection at U.S. 1 and 33rd Street to include better access for Fishermens Community Hospital; establishing a center lane from the entrance to the Marathon Community Park to 33rd Street; and creating a westbound left-turn lane at the park entrance.Tarpon Harbour will need more for apartmentsMARATHONBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comFrom Area code, 1A

Photo courtesy FLORIDA STATE ARCHIVESThis is the Florida Keys Marathon Airport (then called simply Marathon Airport) terminal in 1980, when the Middle Keys airfield had commercial air service. It was so robust that in 1994, Monroe County, which owns the airport, dedicated a new (the current) terminal that cost around $7 million. Since then, several airlines Delta, American, Gulfstream among them have come and gone, and to this day there are no commercial flights there. This building now houses FedEx.CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALOnce again, DOT plays heavy handLETTERS TO THE EDITORU.S. 1s a nightmareIf you have spent any time on the stretch of U.S.1 from Marathon through Key Largo, this will make sense to you. Not so much if you are the state Department of Trans portation, Monroe County Sheriffs Office, a city planner, a road construction company or anybody that pulls a check and does less than enough to manage the operations of our only highway. If you want to see nice functioning roads, take a drive through Naples. They got it right, and then some. During a recent 2.5-hour crawl home, I had plenty of time to see how bad U.S. 1 looks and operates and where the many problems are. There were no accidents. Seems everybody has figured out that the Old Highway in Islamorada saves them time, so down the road they stop U.S. 1 traffic, cutting back in. The left arm is cutting the right arm off literally. I just saved you a million-dollar traffic study. This helps too: Finish the construction work you start and hire more than five guys to get it done in a timely manner. Have police block off the Old Highway intersections to keep traffic on the highway and not in neighborhoods. Lock the Snake Creek drawbridge. I dont care about your tall sailboat that stops 100 cars for your recreation. Kick the campers off the side of the roads. Go to a beach like the rest of the world. I can keep going, but this is very basic common sense that is not applied to any degree. The Sunday after the Fourth of July should be seen as a practice run for an evacuation lots of people leaving at once. I saw a disaster and have no confidence there is any chance of an orderly evacuation because multiple agencies have failed you all. It was pure anarchy on the road and there was zero preparation or action by the people that get paid to keep U.S. 1 operating as it should. If I was a visitor stuck in that nightmare, I would be reconsidering coming back to the Keys to spend my next vacation. Think about it. There goes our income. Maybe Id go to Naples, where you can get from point A to Point B in a safe and timely manner. If it isnt easy getting around, then we all should be asking these agencies why. Until then, enjoy your extended stay in the two-lane war zone and fend for yourself. Make a game out of counting Bobs Barricades or how many people cut in front of you because you arent going anywhere. Kevin Johnsen Key LargoBooze ban uselessA recent article concerning a proposed open-container ban in Marathon struck me as being a little naive on the part of the council member who proposed it. The sheriff has a valid point when he says that the costs of educating his deputies and subsequent costs of enforcement and incarceration would make it prohibitive. The Key West Police Department is zealous in its enforcement of the same type of law and, in looking at the arrest records, it is easy to make the sheriffs point for him. In enforcing the municipal ordinance violations, the same names keep being arrested, day after day, week after week, and their addresses are, invariably, streets of Key West, so the efficacy of the law is questionable at the very best. In truth of fact, the threat is not much of a threat at all. Consider this as an example: The threat of three hots and a cot with bathing facilities and airconditioned luxury during the dog days of August doesnt seem like much of an imposition to me. When weighed against the costs of arrest, transportation, prosecution, room and board and all the attendant processing fees against the perceived gain to the community, one questions the qualifications of the proposing council member to be a community leader. Ed Sjolin Hemingway, S.C.Pool is a health hazardI was standing in the community pool in Bahama Village in Key West the other day, taking a break from laps, when I overheard a man reclining in a chaise poolside tell someone: Its so nice to come here in the morning to wash off the scum and then head over to the beach. A week earlier, I had noticed a different man sitting in the pool, shorts half down, long gray beard dangling in the water, picking at his feet. Recently, everyone was ordered out of the pool because someone had defecated in the shallow end. I was unable to do laps for the next couple of days while attendants shocked the pool with chlorine to kill germs.Every time I walk through the mens changing area to get to the pool, I inevitably see dirty socks, old soap bars, clumps of hair, soaked tissues, empty bottles and other remnants of guys who apparently have no understanding of or respect for the fact that this is a public changing area. Clearly, they consider this their own personal bathroom.As a longtime resident of Key West, I appreciate the fact that my tax dollars are invested in a beautiful lap pool that I can use at no extra cost. This is the only lap pool to which I have access. It grosses me out, though, when I see these violations of hygiene occur over and over again, with no one apparently doing anything about it. A friend recently approached one of the lifeguards, asking the lifeguard what he would do if someone standing on the edge of the pool suddenly pulled down his shorts and started peeing into the water. The lifeguard responded: Close the pool.Ive debated whether to return to the pool. Several friends have already sworn off the pool while others talk about their concerns about the whole situation. One friend even asked me if he needs a permit to stage a demonstration over this. Im not alone, thats for sure. Simply put: No one should be put in the position of having to think twice about taking advantage of any public service that he or she has paid for with tax dollars, especially if the health and safety of the general public are cause for hesitation and concern. It should be a no-brainer that something must be done.Id like my confidence and the confidence of others restored on this matter.Chris Tittel Key WestFor no reason whatsoever, agency takes away parking crucial to Key Largo eateryIn this era of increasing distrust of government, the Florida Department of Transportation has gone out of its way in the Keys lately to impose its will with little regard to the people for which the agency serves. Trying to re-enact a miniature version of the crushing of the Prague Spring, DOT Right of Way Administrator Maria A. Llanes this week sent bulldozers to destroy the parking lot of Harriettes Restaurant one of the Upper Keys most successful and beloved establishments. The seven parking spaces at the restaurant at mile marker 95.7 bayside technically belong to the state, but for more than 30 years, DOT did nothing to take them back. For the past six months, Harriette Mattson, Harriettes owner, has been paying DOT rent for the property. And she attempted several times to buy the few feet from the state. But DOT didnt want to sell. Why does DOT all of a sudden need this tiny piece of land? Were not sure. Llanes never got back to us. Until she does, we can deduce blatant hubris. The only warning Mattson received was an emailed courtesy notification from Llanes Tuesday saying the bulldozers were on their way. Florida Keys residents are among the most tolerant people youll meet. But when it comes to DOTs heavy-handedness and lack of explanation for many of its actions, there is near-unanimous belief that DOT barely tolerates dissent. The raid on Harriettes comes just months after DOT installed a crosswalk in Key Largo that few seem to want or feel is needed, including Monroe County Sheriff Rick Ramsay, who rightly fears its location at mile marker 100 will cause injury and even death. DOTs reaction to Ramsays concerns? Lets wait and see. How comforting. You might remember back in 2006, when the agency sprung on the Keys with no notice that it was installing along U.S. 1 49 poles with cameras atop to keep track of traffic. Initial work had actually started two years earlier, but DOT never said a thing until folks here noticed they were going up. The argument here was such traffic monitoring is not needed we have one main road and there are no alternate routes except for through Islamorada, which has the Old Highway for a bit. So the cameras and related electronic messaging signs hung over U.S. 1 really serve no purpose except to cause more visual pollution. Those messaging signs never say crash ahead or some such thing. They say buckle up and give other useless public service announcements. As of this writing, DOT is in the process of blocking Mattsons restaurant with a 6-inch-high median that will significantly shrink the amount of space available for cars trying to enter her restaurant. The unwanted hunk of landscape will also make it tough for delivery trucks to get to the eatery. Theres no telling how many more businesses on U.S. 1 contain state right of way. So expect the FDOT juggernaut to arrive soon at an establishment near you. Counrty club approvedThe Marathon City Council on Tuesday unanimously OKd the redevelopment of Florida Keys Country Club, a project fronted by accountant Peter Rosasco.The council granted Rosascos team a conditionaluse permit and development agreement that includes plans for an overhaul of the golf course on Sombrero Boulevard, a 76-unit hotel, 15 three-bedroom cottages, a 170seat restaurant, new tennis courts, a swimming pool and a new clubhouse and pro shop.According to the development teams presentation, the construction would take place in three phases. The first would be to construct the cottages, eight on-site employee housing units and a new entrance to the club, among other things.Phases two and three would include the course overhaul by Kip Schulties, a professional in designing and executing golf course renovations and reconstructions, as well as the hotel, swimming pool and restaurant.The country club has suffered in recent years from declining membership. Presi dent Bob Belcaster said the project would be much needed.The redevelopment is, for me, as president of the club, bittersweet. A lot of people liked it the way it was. The problem is it was unsustainable, he said. We welcome it. We think its very important for Marathon. John Wolfe, a local attorney representing Rosascos team, said the club members first priority was to keep a golf course on the property.The core element of any improvement had to be improving the course, he said. Theyve chosen a group that is committed to these ideals.Rosasco emphasized to the council that the hotel portion of the project is not meant to overwhelm the recreational capacity. Were going to open it up to the public and have it available to the kids at the high school. We want the community to be able to use this as much as, or more than, the guests, he said. According to redevelopment plans, 57 of the 76 units would be one bedroom, while another 19 would be two-bedroom suites. There would be 14,093 square feet set aside for the clubhouse and pro shop, a gym, a cafe, a meeting room, a golf simulator room and other amenities. Based on the citys rules for interpreting transient rental units, the 91-room hotel will require 117 transient rental permits. Those would be purchased on the open market and transferred to the property, Rosasco said.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONDocking big concern for ferryConcerns about dock space and security are standing in the way of an overnight ferry service from Marco Island to Key West, but members of the Key West Bight Management District Board think those issues can be ironed out. At Wednesdays board meeting, a Southwest Florida-based business proposed bringing Key West Great Escape, a 177-foot boutique cruise ship with 40 cabins, accommodating up to 80 people, to Key West twice weekly. Each stop would last two nights. Apparently, the Key West Express (daily service to Fort Myers Beach or Marco Island) and the Yankee Freedom (daily service to Fort Jefferson) are already hot-slipping at the city Ferry Terminal at the end of Caroline and Grinnell streets, meaning there is very little time between one ship leaving port and another pulling in to dock. Another concern was security, said board member Harry Bowman. Those people going out and partying in Key West and coming back to the boat at 2 oclock in the morning, theres a security problem there.City ports Director Doug Bradshaw will look at possible solutions to those problems in the coming weeks, Bowman said, and Bowman believes dock space can be found.It may not be directly into the ferry terminal, it might be over at the city dock, who knows, he said, but I think they can work it out and give them a spot. Bowman supports the idea, and believes 80 passengers staying in Key West four nights a week would be an economic benefit to the community. He points out that unlike large cruise ships, these passengers would not be provided meals on board and would spend the meal money on the island. Another concern is whether the passengers on an overnight ferry would pay a bed tax (4 percent per night per hotel room). The Lodging Association of the Florida Keys and Key West wants to make sure visitor taxes are assessed fairly.Lodging Association President Jodi Weinhofer says lots of questions remain, and she doesnt think the board got very far Wednesday. She has asked for more information from the Monroe County Tourist Development Council about who exactly is subject to bed taxes.What theyre talking about, its two nights, twice a week an additional 40 overnight rooms in Key West, she said.

The Miami-based cruise line announced Monday that the megaship Allure of the Seas can now be examined at the Street View level on Google Maps. The cruise company said it is the first in the industry to use Google Maps Business View on a ship.More than 20,000 images shot over eight days in May make it possible for potential vacationers to see areas including the Royal Prom enade, Central Park, Board walk, AquaTheater, Entertain ment Place, restaurants and some staterooms on the 5,400-passenger vessel.Allure of the Seas, which launched in late 2010, is the only ship in Royal Caribbeans fleet to be included in Google Maps. The Street View is available by searching for Allure of the Seas in maps.google.com Miami HeraldCruise line expands non-smoking areasThe worlds largest cruise line said Tuesday that it will no longer let guests smoke on cabin balconies. A spokesman for Carnival Cruise Lines said the new rule, which goes into effect on Oct. 9 across the fleet, is in response to the preferences of a majority of our guests. The cruise line is based in Doral. Smoking inside rooms is already banned, but guests will still be allowed to smoke in designated areas on open decks, in night clubs and in certain parts of casinos and casino bars. Those who break the rule will have to pay a $250 fee.

Call me today!BUSINESS BRIEFS KERRICK BusinessCitizens sheds more policiesThe president of Citizens Property Insurance Corp., which holds most the property insurance policies in the Keys, is confident the private markets can absorb about 300,000 policies now held by the state-backed carrier. However, unlike the mad dash over the past two years to remove nearly 500,000 policies from Citizens, undertaken to lessen the potential financial exposure to the state, future efforts should be more gradual, involving about 100,000 policies a year. Citizens Chief Executive Officer Barry Gilway envisions Citizens number of policies dropping from the 928,546 currently listed to about 850,000 later this year. Citizens is the state-run insure of last resort for people who cant get policies elsewhere. Eventually, the number will fall to around 650,000 policies before the end of 2017, he said. We think about 650,000, 625,000, is about as low as youre ever going to get, Gilway said after addressing the Economic Club of Florida on Thursday at the Florida State University Alumni Center.The current overall number of policies is down from 1.26 million on May 31, 2013. A year earlier, the state-backed insurer topped 1.43 million policies. Still, to approach 600,000, Gilway said the grossly inadequate rates now in place for coastal accounts must be brought closer to the rates that would offered by private insurers. Also, the inclusion of renewal polices in the electronic clearinghouse offering qualified insurers a chance to pick up the least risky residential policies must take hold. The clearinghouse, started in January for new policies, is currently set to expand in November to include policies up for renewal.Through the clearinghouse, when coverage by a private firm is found within 15 percent of Citizens premium for a new single-family policy, the policy goes to the private carrier. Even with the introduction of the clearinghouse, which has allowed private vendors to collect nearly 3,300 new residential policies, Citizens continues to average 16,000 new policies each month, of which about 500 are coastal accounts. The overall monthly average is down from 26,000 a year earlier.

Recipe, 2BBSports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Go ahead, break the rulesIn todays ever-changing world of fashion, its important not to take any fashion rules too seriously. Each year, designers emerge with new collections that challenge what weve been told we should and shouldnt do. So instead of following those old adages, challenge yourself to break a few fashion rules this year and evolve your own personal style. As designer Alexander McQueen put it, Its a new era in fashion there are no rules.Light and whiteHigh-end fashion labels have been breaking this rule for years and in a tropical climate, its imperative you embrace the white-in-winter trend. With such bright surroundings, we can wear bright apparel all year long. So this year, keep your white jeans and shoes in your closet well after Labor Day for a fresh look in the cooler months in the Florida Keys. This rule also goes for pastels; there is no reason to reserve light pinks, blues and yellows for spring and summer only.Keep the sneaksBrightly colored fashion sneakers are being paired with dressier pieces for a modern twist on a daytime look. Look for fashion sneakers that arent meant for running or intense training but still offer support such as Keds or Toms. Playful prints such as polka dots or stripes add an element of surprise and offer a comfortable alternative to flip-flops for a chic yet comfortable look. More blingCoco Chanel once said that before leaving the house, you should remove one accessory. And yet, the infamous fashion icon Iris Apfel has done the opposite. Iris is known for piling on her jewelry and has become a fashion muse in her 90s for her eccentric and identifiable style. So next time youre getting all dolled up, try piling on the bling.Go ahead, mixContrasting patterns can look fabulous together. Try pairing florals and stripes or polka dots and plaid. The trick is to keep the base color the same for a pulledtogether look. In addition, dont shy away from bright colors paired together like red and pink. A red skirt paired with a pastel pink top can look very modern and eye-catching.Time: Who cares?Bold lipstick and clutches were once reserved for evening only. Lipstick colors such as orange, pink, red and plum can act as an accessory and look great for day. If you wear a bold lip for day, keep your makeup minimal for a polished look. Clutches are also a great way to liven up your daytime look. Swap out your go-to bag for a clutch to change a normal day look into something much more fashionable. At the end of the day, wear what makes you feel good. If you feel good, youllWho says you have to stay in the lines?CONCH STYLE DKs Style Hut has an array of clutches and other accessories.

Divers and snorkelers often turn a hobby of fishwatching into organized fish-counting dives individually or through a dive club to join local dive shops for fish ID excursions. Resource managers and policy makers use the data to help assess reefs condition and their ability to sustain fish and other marine life. More than 181,000 surveys have already been submitted for research, according to the Reef Environmental Education Foundation in Key Largo. REEF has planned a free introductory fish ID class for July 23 at the organizations headquarters at mile marker 98.3 in Key Largo. Its an opportunity for divers to learn fish identification skills, get more information on REEF programs and prepare to do an actual survey dive. To participate, call 852-0030 or go to www.reef.org. A Great American Fish County morning dive is planned for July 26 with Ocean Divers, 522 Carib bean Drive in Key Largo. Fish identification and marine survey materials will be provided to use, and REEF marine conservation interns will help with fish ID during the two-tank dive. To join the event, call (800) 451-1113. Fish-survey participants receive a discount. Divers are encouraged to conduct fish count surveys year-round, since collected reef fish data is aggregated with counts from around the world and has been used by local and national agencies to develop management plans for coral reef resources in the islands of the Florida Keys, Caribbean, Hawaii and North Pacific.

It was one of those culinary epiphanies: I realized you rarely get great barbecued ribs from a restaurant. They have to come from backyards. My rib-awakening came during the worlds largest barbecue contest, Memphis in May. All it took was that first bite of a grill-smoked rib for me to recognize the real deal. There is nothing like homemade ribs. And here is the dirty little secret: They dont take nearly as long as the competition guys would like you to think they do. And they are much simpler to prepare than legend has it. The most popular ribs to cook are back ribs, but spareribs and St. Louis-style ribs are gaining traction. Back ribs are cut from high up on the rib near the spine. Back ribs are meaty, leaner than spareribs and very flavorful. This is the area of the pig from which the tenderloin is cut. Back ribs usually are sold in either full slabs (13 ribs) or half slabs (seven ribs), and are the most expensive cut of rib. When they come from a pig that was less than a year old, they are referred to as baby back ribs. True baby backs generally weigh one to 1.5 pounds each. Spareribs are cut from the belly or side of the pig. Spareribs are longer and fatter than back ribs. While they have less meat, many parts of the country prefer them and the St. Louis-style cut is gaining in popularity. The St. Louis cut is a sparerib trimmed to remove the flap of meat on the underside of the breast bone and squared off to more easily fit on the grill. Once you decide which type of rib to buy, there are a few things to remember when purchasing your meat. First, make sure each slab weighs at least two pounds and that the ribs have a nice layer of meat covering the bone. Slabs of ribs that are factory-cut often have bone shine, or areas of the rack where the blade hit the bone and cut off all the meat. Second, buy the best quality, freshest product available. This is especially true with meat. Look at the expiration date on the label and give your purchases the old-fashioned smell test. If it smells off or a little funny, then it is probably old. The next decision that you have to make is whether to remove the silver skin. Along the back (non-meaty) side of a slab of ribs there is a smooth covering or membrane that holds the ribs together. It is often referred to as the silver skin. Some people recommend removing it, but it is purely optional. Finally, make sure the meat has receded from the ends of the bones and that you can bend the rack without breaking it in pieces. Following are Memphisstyle baby backs. First, what you need:Six pounds baby back ribs.Three cups barbecue woodchips, soaked in water for one hour.Two lemons, halved.Quarter cup barbecue rub (see recipe above).16-ounce bottle barbecue sauce. Prepare a grill for medium-low (about 325 degrees) indirect cooking. In a charcoal grill, this means banking the hot coals to one side of the grill and cooking the ribs on the cooler side. In a gas grill, this means heating the grill with all burners on, but turning off the burners on one side just before putting the food on that side. Remove silver skin from the backs of the ribs, if desired. Place the soaked wood chips directly on the hot charcoals, or in smoking box if using a gas grill (place the box in the grill according to manufacturer directions). Cover the grill. Rub the cut lemons all over the fronts and backs of the ribs, squeezing to release as much juice as possible. Set aside for five minutes, then sprinkle the ribs liberally with the barbecue rub. Let sit for 15 minutes. Place the ribs, bone side down, in the center of the cooking grate over the cooler side of the grill. Cover the grill and cook 1.5 to two hours, or until the meat is tender and has pulled back from the ends of the bones. Do not open the grill cover for at least the first 30 minutes. After that, if the ribs start to burn at the edges, stack them on top of one another in the very center of the grill and lower your heat slightly. Twenty minutes before serving, un-stack the ribs if necessary, then brush with barbecue sauce. Remove the ribs from the grill and let rest 10 minutes before cutting into individual or twoto three-rib portions. If desired, additional barbecue sauce can be warmed and served alongside the ribs.

Depending on how its made, it could contain as much alcohol as two glasses of wine. The National Institutes of Health is trying to spread the word: Take a look at its online alcohol calculator to see how much youre really drinking with those summer cocktails. A standard drink is the amount of alcohol in a 12ounce beer, 5 ounces of wine or 1.5 ounces of distilled spirits. Its a useful way to track alcohol consumption. But the multiple ingredients of mixed drinks make for a harder count. Most people dont realize how much alcohol is actually in a drink, said Dr. George Koob, director of the NIHs National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. Obviously it depends on the bartender and whos mixing the drinks. Recipes matter: The calculators pia colada example, for instance, assumes it contains 3 ounces of rum. Plan on using 2 ounces instead? The calculator adjusts to show its like 1.3 standard drinks. What about a margarita? The calculator concludes its the equivalent of 1.7 standard drinks if made with 1.5 ounces of tequila, an ounce of orange liqueur and half an ounce of lime juice. A mojito? 1.3 standard drinks. A martini, extra dry? 1.4 standard drinks. Other favorites? Type them in at http://rethinking drinking.niaaa.nih.gov/ ToolsResources/Cocktail Calculator.asp. Beyond beverage choice, Koob, who specializes in the neurobiology of alcohol, has some tips:Summer heatHeat increases thirst but alcohol is a diuretic, Koob notes. So in addition to the usual advice to pace yourself no more than one standard drink an hour Koob says to stay hydrated by alternating some water or club soda with the alcohol.GenderWomens bodies react differently to alcohol, and not just because they tend to weigh less than men. They dont metabolize alcohol as quickly, and their bodies contain less water. On average, it takes one less drink for a woman to become intoxicated than a man of the same weight, Koob said. The NIAAAs definition of low-risk drinking for women is no more than seven drinks a week and no more than three drinks on any single day, while for men the limit is no more than 14 drinks a week and no more than four on any single day. The just-passed July 4 holiday weekend historically is dangerous on the highways: 38 percent of fatalities involved alcohol-impaired driving in 2011, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. But alcohol also doesnt mix with boating, swimming and diving, Koob warns. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, alcohol use is involved in up to 70 percent of adult and adolescent deaths associated with water recreation.Holding your ownWhat determines why one drink is plenty for one person while another routinely downs two or three? Genes play a big role. So do environmental factors, such as getting used to drinking a certain amount. That tolerance is a balancing act, Koob says. He cites research showing the person who can drink others under the table is at higher risk for alcohol problems later in life than is someone more sensitive to its effects. Alcohol-use disorders affect an estimated 17 million Americans. There are two medications that can help, targeting different steps in the addiction cycle, Koob said. More medications that work in different ways are needed, but changing lifestyle, cognitive therapy and support groups all play a role, he said. Medications are never going to cure the disease, Koob said. What they will do is help you on the way.

When she was told he had cancer, she knew to blame her heavy smoking, an addiction she couldnt kick until after her pet died.Secondhand smoke can cause lung and nasal cancer in dogs, malignant lymphoma in cats and allergy and respiratory problems in both animals, according to studies done at Tufts Universitys School of Veterinary Medicine in Massachusetts, Colorado State University and other schools. The number of pets that die each year from tobacco exposure isnt available, but vets know from lab tests and office visits that inhaling smoke causes allergic reactions, inflammation and nasal and pulmonary cancers in pets, said Dr. Kerri Marshall, the chief veterinary officer for Trupanion pet insurance.Despite Worthingtons certainty about the cause of her dogs death, more research needs to be done before veterinarians can definitively say whether a dogs cancer was caused by secondhand smoke or something else, said Dr. Liz Rozanski, whose research at Tufts College focuses on respiratory function in small animals.Worthington, 52, of Brooklyn, N.Y., said she was a teenager when she started smoking and she had always smoked around Tigger, who was 8 when he died in 2004. A year later, Worthington, her mom and sister all quit in honor of the bichon frise. Then, in 2007, Worthingtons mom died while suffering from cancer. Cigarettes took my mother, she said. And they took my dog. Pets arent mentioned in this years surgeon generals report, but in 2006, it said secondhand smoke puts animals at risk. The Legacy Foundation, the nations largest nonprofit public health charity, encouraged smokers to quit for the sake of their pets, and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animal surged making homes with pets smoke-free. Its even more important to safeguard cats, which are more susceptible to tobacco smoke than dogs.Lymphoma is one of the leading causes of feline death. The Tufts research showed that repeated exposure to smoke doubled a cats chances of getting the cancer and living with a smoker for more than five years increased the risk fourfold. It can also cause a fatal mouth cancer.Tobacco companies acknowledge the risks of smoking in people but havent taken the same stance with dogs and cats. Philip Morris USA says on its website that it believes cigarettes cause diseases and aggravates others in nonsmokers and that the problems warrant warnings. But we havent taken a stand on the potential impact on pets, said David Sylvia, a spokesman for Altria Group Inc., the parent company of Philip Morris. Symptoms of cancer in animals include coughing, trouble eating or breathing, drooling and weight loss.Associated PressOUR PETS LIVING BRIEFSAuxiliary wants old life jacketsIf you have life jackets your children or grandchildren have outgrown and are willing to donate them, the Big Pine Key U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary will inspect them for serviceable use and then give them out free to children who may not have one.You can find auxiliary members at their trailer at Venture Out on Cudjoe Key on July 26 from 3 to 5 p.m. and July 27 at the Big Pine Fishing Lodge from 4 to 6 p.m. Then on July 29, theyll be at Bahia Honda State Park from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. To find out more, call 744-3774.
