It was the site of one of several statewide celebrations hosted by Equality Florida to mark Judge Luis Garcias decision. Monroe County Circuit Judge Luis Garcia overturned Floridas 2008 constitutional gay-marriage ban on Thursday and ordered that two Key West bartenders be allowed to wed.But Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi has already filed an appeal with the Third District Court of Appeal, meaning no licenses will be issued, despite Garcias ruling, until a decision is heard in the appeal process. Bondi said in a statement: With many similar cases pending throughout the entire country, finality on this constitutional issue must come from the U.S. Supreme Court.Aaron Huntsman and William Lee Jones, who met at a gay pride celebration and have been a couple for 11 years, sued Monroe County Clerk Amy Heavilin in April when they were denied a marriage license. Their case mirrors a similar suit in Miami-Dade County, in which six same-sex couples and LGBT advocacy group Equality Florida Institute sued County Clerk Harvey Ruvin for the right to marry.Heavilin hasnt defended the lawsuit but Bondi did. In the Monroe case, Garcia gave a Tuesday start date for issuing licenses so Heavilin has time to get her office ready for what could be many same-sex couples seeking marriage licenses. But thats now on hold because of Bondis appeal. Still, as for Garcias decision, I cant believe it finally happened, Jones said. Love is love. It doesnt matter if its a guy and woman or two women or two men. Love is love. As we have seen time and time again over the last few months, when marriage equality bans are challenged in the courts, love wins, said Democratic Party of Florida Chairwoman Allison Tant. This is a tremendous victory for LGBT Floridians in Monroe County, and we look forward to soon celebrating full marriage equality across the state. On the other side are people like John Stembeger, president and general counsel of the conservative Florida Family Policy Council in Orlando.This is a very sad day for Floridians. This is an entirely illegitimate process. The judge had no legal authority in this decision, he said.The gay-marriage battle is being waged across the nation. A federal judge last week ruled Kentuckys same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional. According to the group Freedom toKey West couple sued for right to get marriedBy STEVE ROTHAUSMiami HeraldSAME-SEX MARRIAGENo rush for marketingKeys businesses arent quite ready to start marketing the islands as a destination for same-sex marriages, but they are closely watching for the results of a lawsuit filed by two Key West bartenders denied a marriage license in April.Thursday, Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia ruled that Aaron Huntsman and William Lee Jones, who had sued County Clerk Amy Heavilin after her office denied them the license, have the right to get married under the U.S. Constitution despite Floridas ban on same-sex marriage.Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi immediately filed an appeal to the Third District Court of Appeal. Guy Ross, executive director of the Key West Business Guild, says finality in the case is a marathon, not a sprint. I dont think anyone is rushing around here right now ordering babys breath at Keys florists, Ross said. This has got to go through the appellate process my guess is that were looking at at least a year. But hes glad Monroe County is leading the states conversation when it comes to same-sex marriage. Weve anticipated that marriage equality will happen in Florida and that Key West would lead the way, Ross said. Several guesthouses in Key West have said they dont have marketing strategies in place yet but will continue to welcome all of their guests with open arms, no matter the purpose of their visit.A Key West photographer, though, wasted no time revamping his website to welcome same-sex couples wanting a destination wedding even though theyre still banned. His next stop is to the various guesthouses to drop off flyers offering his services.Daniel Kolbe, owner of Southernmost PhotographyLike everyone, businesses await appealBy JESSICA MACHETTAKeynoter ContributorSAME-SEX MARRIAGESee Weddings, 3AAttorney facing more legal actionA former attorney for Cay Clubs Resorts and Marinas has been sued by a Fort Myers lawyer who accuses him of civil fraud for seizing control of her firm. Charles P.T. Phoenix, based in Sanibel, received immunity from criminal prosecution in Cay Clubs matters in exchange for a March statement on the failed resort developers business practices. A federal judge has described Cay Clubs as a classic Ponzi scheme where monies from later investors in Cay Clubs were used to pay earlier investors. The losses amounted to $300 million, authorities said, and there were some 1,400 victims. As Cay Clubs collapsed in 2007 and 2008, hundreds of its Keys employees lost their jobs.In the March statement to prosecutors with the U.S. Attorneys Office in Miami, Phoenix said he advised Cay Clubs President Dave Clark and other company executives that the companys sales pitch could violate federal laws on the sale of securities.Phoenix said that Cay Clubs ignored the advice but he did not withdraw as attorney because he enjoyed his generous remuneration and other benefits from his job.That job paid $50,000 per month during certain periods between 2005 and 2007 when he served as gen-Phoenix formerly was lawyer for failed companyCAY CLUBS COLLAPSE PHOENIX KEY WESTConch Republic mourns AndersonThe Conch Republic is one of those things that make the Florida Keys unique. Were quirky and fun, and the Conch Republic the Florida Keys alter-ego is rooted in this chain of islands history of thumbing its nose at the mainland and its policies, which are decidedly uptight by Key West standards.This week, the Keys lost the man who has been waging the war all in good fun for more than 30 years. Peter Anderson, 67, died Wednesday from lung cancer. Dennis Wardlow is a former mayor of Key West and among the people who began the revolution.He and Bobby Green and some of these, they went to a foreign country and used a Conch Republic passport; they got out of the country, Wardlow laughed. Bobby Green had a little trouble getting back in, but that was Peter. He just loved what he did, and it was always, If I did something wrong, it was easier to ask forgiveness than permission. And I guess thats what Peter did when he traveledBig celebration is being planned for early AugustBy JESSICA MACHETTAKeynoter ContributorIn 2006, a group of Cuban refugees landed on a Seven Mile Bridge piling. Invoking the wet-foot, dry-foot policy, the U.S. Key Guard sent them back to the island nation because the feds said the bridge isnt U.S. land. Anderson then boated out to the piling and claimed it as part of the Conch Republic since the U.S. wouldnt claim it.See Anderson, 2ASee Marriage, 2ASee Phoenix, 2A By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com

On July 8, four boats were reported burglarized overnight at the Driftwood Marina on Coco Plum Drive. Between Thursday night and Friday morning, six more boats were burglarized at the Duck Key Marina. Detective Sgt. Tom Walker from the Monroe County Sheriffs Office says the owners of such businesses need to make sure they have working surveillance equipment and good lighting to help guard against such crimes, and to help police identify suspects if crimes do occur. He said thieves can come by water as well as land. He recommends boat owners remove expensive electronics from their boats if at all possible. Over the next week or so, I will be sending detectives to marinas in the Middle Keys to help owners with security surveys of their businesses. We will make suggestions as to how they can make their property safer. It will then be up to them to implement those security suggestions, Walker said. Thefts of boating gear in the Keys generally come in waves, and often involve mainland suspects.

And I think that stands out more than anything for me, because that took some tenacity.Wardlow said Anderson always kept him apprised of such shenanigans when he traveled.My name was on it! Im the prime minister this is my country, he said. I was like, Peter! Youre going to get me deported. Thats what you gotta love about Peter. Peter always did things his own way. Its like the song by Frank Sinatra, My Way, but he always did it with a sense of humor.The secession from the union happened 32 years ago, and Anderson joined as the secretary general seven years later. Wardlow credits Anderson for keeping the faux nation alive this many years later.It was another Keys character from a bygone era, Capt. Tony Tarracino, then the real mayor of Key West, who proclaimed Anderson the Conch Republics secretary general.Anderson was diagnosed with cancer last October and celebrated his 25th year with the Conch Republic during this years annual Conch Republic Independence Celebration.Despite being weak from illness, Anderson celebrated with enthusiasm and blew his trademark conch-shell horn to the delight of the crowds lining Duval. He always loved the Independence Celebration parade.His former wife, Kate Miano, said she spoke with Anderson shortly before his death. We talked about having a parade for him while he was in bed last week, Miano said. We wanted to pinpoint him on a lot of things, and he said, Oh, yeah, I want a parade. He didnt get that parade but in early August, an islandwide celebration of his life, still being planned, is expected. Miano said Anderson wanted his epitaph to read he had fun. Anderson was behind some of the bizarre ideas that have become mainstays in Keys culture, such as annual drag races in Key West, where drag queens race down Duval Street to raise charity donations. And that speaks to the man behind the humor, the humanitarian. He was instrumental in setting up Habitat for Humanity of the Lower Keys and Key West, and founded the Conch Republic Childrens Fund for Wesley House Family Services. He helped bring 22 tons of medical and food supplies to refugees from the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, and served as president of Reef Relief the past five years. He was reelected to the position on the eve of his death. Her leaves behind a daughter, Mikaela. A memorial fund has been set up at First State Bank of the Florida Keys to help pay for a celebration, memorial and medical expenses. Checks should be made to Mikaela Anderson Benefit Account for Peter Anderson.Keys lose a characterFrom Anderson, 1A eral counsel and senior vice president.In the statement, Phoenix acknowledged he failed to notify lenders that many Cay Clubs sales included unallowable leaseback payments to buyers and club membership fees as part of the mortgage in the buyers purchase.Phoenix is listed as a member in good standing of The Florida Bar.I am not aware of any complaints made by any [Cay Clubs] victim about Mr. Phoenix, Brian Tannebaum, an attorney representing Phoenix, said Friday.People who are outside the legal profession often do not understand how lawyers can do certain things, but those things often fall under attorney-client privilege, Tannebaum said. Its not always simple in determining a lawyers role and what he is required to do. Jack Bridges, an Upper Keys attorney and former chairman of a disciplinary committee for The Florida Bars 16th Circuit (Monroe County), said he cannot comment on a specific case. However, cases involving knowledge of or participation in ongoing fraud could lead to ethical rulings that may result in disbarment, Bridges said. In the case filed in Lee County in November 2013, attorney Brenda Garretson said she entered into an agreement with Phoenix allowing him to assume management of her Rhodes Tucker and Garretson law firm on Marco Island. Phoenix reportedly pledged to provide Garretsons health insurance and provide a share of the firms fees from her cases. Garretson said Phoenix failed to pay rent on the office, never paid her, and hijacked electronic and physical files. When she complained, Garretson said Phoenix insulted her and sent e-mails claiming that God spoke through him, according to the suit.Suit alleges fraudFrom Phoenix, 1A Marry, LGBT advocates have won 23 times in federal, state and appellate courts since June 2013, when the U.S. Supreme Court threw out a key portion of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act. Last year, U.S. Supreme Court justices determined the federal government must recognize same-sex marriages, but did not address whether state marriage bans are legal.Advocates keep winningFrom Marriage, 1A Eimers case goes to grand juryA Monroe County grand jury will be presented information Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in its quest to determine if a crime occurred or Key West Police Department policies were violated in the death of a Michigan man following a traffic stop. Charles Eimers, 61, of Birch Run, Mich., died at Lower Keys Medical Center Dec. 4. He was admitted there after he was taken into custody during a traffic stop on Thanksgiving at South Beach, on the Atlantic end of Duval Street. Police contend they had to take him down after he had initially fled, but a witness video appears to show that Eimers surrendered at the beach. The grand jury could decide to hand up criminal indictments and make recommendations on changes needed in Police Department policy. Prosecutors Mark Wilson and Val Winter will give the grand jury the results of a Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation into Eimers death. Eimers family sued the city and 12 police officers in U.S. District Court in April, claiming wrongful death. In the lawsuit, the family says it is grossly apparent that the defendants asphyxiated Charles Eimers by forcing his face into the sand, causing him to inhale sand. Then-Medical Examiner E. Hunt Scheuerman did an autopsy on Eimers on Dec. 12. Hes called Eimers death the result of a preexisting heart problem.Panel to decide if city police were at faultKEY WESTKeynoter Staff
The western North Carolina trail where a Key Largo man was killed earlier this month after riding into a metal cable while riding his all-terrain vehicle had been used by ATV riders for at least 14 years without incident.And although local authorities quickly concluded the trail is on private property, no one not even police seems to know who owns the land. Key Largo business owner Shane Hamilton died July 4, a day after striking the cable, which was strung low across a narrow path in the Swain County woods where Hamilton was renting a cabin with his family. The Swain County Sheriffs Office refuses to investigate the incident, and Detective C.P. Posey concluded in her July 8 report that no criminal action has occurred a determination made despite saying she did not know who owns the property where Hamilton died, and therefore never asking that person if he or she placed the cable across the path and, if so, why. Sheriff Curtis Cochran has not returned numerous phone calls and e-mails requesting comment for this story. His deputy chief, Jason Gardner, hung up the phone after less than a minute of being questioned by a reporter about the incident last week. Jim Clayton, the Bryson City man who rented the cabin to the Hamiltons, told Swain County deputies that as early as January, he walked the same trail on which Shane Hamilton rode his Yamaha ATV and never saw a cable. Were talking a lot of people use that trail, and Id never seen it, Clayton told The Reporter/Keynoter this week. Ive ridden horses back there, and a lot of people go hiking on the trail. Hamilton was 45. His 10year-old son was riding on the back of the ATV but was not injured. He ran back to the cabin to get help. Clayton said the cabin is in short walking distance from where the cable was placed, so Hamilton was just minutes into his ride when he crashed that Friday afternoon. Posey said in her report that she does not know who owns the property despite concluding that its private property based on reviewing Swain County tax maps. Posey asked Clayton if there was any agreement with the person who owns the property for ATV use. Mr. Clayton stated that there was not a written or verbal agreement in place but that folks had been using the trail for approximately 14 years, Posey wrote. The Hamiltons wanted the Swain County Sheriffs Office to investigate the possibility that the cable had been placed across the road to intentionally harm people riding the trail, Posey said in her report. Clayton said the manner in which the cable was splayed was a danger to anyone using the trail, not just ATV riders. A hiker could have tripped over it and hit his head on a rock, Clayton said. To me, this is not what a prudent person would do to keep someone off his property. For the price of that cable, they could have bought a 3by-5 piece of plywood that says, Look, no more. But Posey on July 5 told the Hamiltons that I could not determine that any criminal action had taken place and that the family would have to contact an attorney if they wished to pursue civil actions against the property owners.The North Carolina Depart ment of Health and Human Services has not released an autopsy report stating the cause of Hamiltons death.As expected, the Marathon City Council on Thursday adopted a preliminary fiscal year 2014-15 property tax rate 5.43 percent higher than in the current year.The 2.3297 rate, or $2.3297 per $1,000 of assessed property value, would raise $4.16 million in tax revenue, a $220,136 increase from the current years $3.94 million. The vote was 4-0, with Vice Mayor Chris Bull absent. The increased rate would be used to cover staff raises, an increase in health insurance costs, a citywide beautification effort and other projects. City employees have not had raises in five years. We have added beautification funds and raises for personnel who have not had raises for years, said Mayor Dick Ramsay. But Ramsay was clear he wants to address possible cuts in other areas as the budget process continues.What I would like to see is [city] staff accumulate a list of items that are absolutely necessary to the city, he said.Fire and EMS service would take up the biggest portion of the general fund at $3,171,505, a $462,132 increase from this years budget. Other areas of the general fund that would see a significant bump during the next budget cycle includes the Planning Department at $420,836 (a $178,006 increase) and Public Works at $370,009 (a $122,535 increase). Total expenditures for 2014-15 are expected to be $10,107,439, a $981,029 increase from the current budget. Finance Director Jennifer Johnson told the council total revenue would be $9.26 million, meaning the city would face a nearly $850,000 revenue shortfall.Budget planners said the city has a three-month reserve ($3.18 million) built up in cases of emergency, a threemonth decrease from budgets of yesteryears. City council members expressed interest in building the reserve back up to at least six months, especially since the city is in a high-risk weather area. Its not a question of if its going to happen but when it happens, Council man John Bartus said of a potential hurricane in the future. I dont want to be the council that drops the ball when that happens.The council will review special revenue and enterprise fund budgets, which are not funded by tax payer dollars, at Tuesdays council meeting. That meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center.Cops never questioned landowner Saturday, July 19, 2014 3A Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com CLARA MAYETTE, GRI REALTORCell: (305) 395-2095 Office: (305) 289-0621 email@example.com www.keysproperties.comKey Colony Beach Realty, Inc. 220 Sadowski Causeway, P.O.

From the actual ceremony to the guests, you wouldnt know the difference.Kolbe, married with children, believes the forward momentum for equality has been overdue. Love is love. Why should peoples stupidity stop it? They should have a right to be miserable like the rest of us married people.The Monroe County Tourist Development Council is monitoring the situation very closely, according to Director Harold Wheeler.But we dont know how long the appeal process will take, Wheeler said. Its a bit premature to create a same-sex marriage marketing plan until there is a final outcome. With that said, the TDC maintains a robust LGBT marketing initiative that has been in place for many years involving advertising, public relations and sales disciplines. TDC is also able to respond quickly to changing situations and circumstances, so creating such a plan at the appropriate time can be easily accomplished in an expeditious manner. Same-sex couples can get legally married in several states now, but that wasnt the case until fairly recently, as states keep losing their federal lawsuits defending bans.

Its very hard to find places to rent in Monroe County, said Commissioner George Neugent.Neugent said the county should revamp its Affordable Housing Advisory Committee, which meets just once annually. Appointment of new members may be needed, he added.Other commissioners agreed but emphasized that efforts should focus on working people. We dont need affordable housing; we need workforce housing, Commissioner David Rice said. Building subsidized housing that isnt rented by a person in our workforce really doesnt help us much. Online posts by Keys workers fill social-media websites, Commissioner Heather Carruthers said. Workers want to stay but cant find an affordable place to live. Its not going to get any better. Affordable housing was a dominant issue in the Keys during the building boom a decade ago. Efforts faded when the real-estate crash stopped property conversion and slowed rent increases. Now, hundreds of new resort rooms will open in the coming months and there is renewed interest in high-end development. County staff was directed to review the housing committees role and goals, and suggest changes.Also Wednesday, commissioners upheld two recently approved contracts that were contested. A motion to reopen contract proposals for Monroe County misdemeanor-probation services failed on a tie vote. Professional Probation Services will take over the court-affiliated operation from Court Options, which missed a deadline to apply for a new contract. Wednesday was the last legislative day the commission had to revisit the issue, County Attorney Bob Shillinger said. Citing inconsistencies in the contract process, Rice and Neugent voted to reopen bidding. The decision process was sloppy and messy, Neugent said.Carruthers and Mayor Sylvia Murphy dismissed any irregularities as minor, a description made by Shillinger. There was no fatal flaw on our side, Carruthers said. Court Options did not know when their contract was up.Meanwhile, Pedro Falcon Contractors of Big Pine Key kept its $1.09 million contract for a new U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility in Marathon.

Photo courtesy MONROE COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARYThis is 1 Duval St. in Key West in 1973, far from what it looks like now. It was basically a residential area. Now the 142-room Pier House Resort which sold for $90 million in May 2013 occupies the site, part of the heart of Old Town.CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALCourt reels in poor decisionLETTERS TO THE EDITORBeach is neglectedIve lived in the Marathon area for the past eight years. In that time, Ive seen our city and county agencies and governments do many things in attempts to improve the aesthetic beauty of our area. However, as a resident of the Coco Plum Beach neighborhood, I feel it necessary to speak out about the neglect of our once-pristine sandy beach. Once a destination for locals and tourists, it is now unsightly, overgrown and visited by few. When I arrived at my home on Coco Plum in 2006 I was amazed at what a gorgeous stretch of secluded beach there was right out my back door. Families would gather to enjoy the lush sand and seclusion. Locals made it a favorite spot to spend weekends and holidays, or just to walk the dog.A couple of years ago, in a re-beautification effort, the city added truck loads, literally hundreds of tons of sand, to the beach. They spread the new sand from the wetlands down to the tide line for the length of our public recreation area (over a quarter mile). Sand dunes were built at the public entrance, and sea oats were planted to fortify them.The bathrooms and parking areas were also updated and improved. Needless to say, we were very excited. We already had a nice place, but this effort made it even nicer. More people than ever were spending time here and enjoying our little secret.Its been a couple of years since these improvements were made, and many officials have come and gone. Im not sure who dropped the ball, and I dont care. What I do know is that our beach has gone to hell. What was once a place to escape and enjoy has become an overgrown seaweed pile, an eyesore.From the tree line of the wetlands to just feet from the tide line grow vines, thick weeds and now even trees. Now it is reduced to a minimal walking path, very little usable beach and piles of decaying seaweed. It is sad.As a manager and representative of the Royal Plum Club condominiums, I felt it incumbent upon me to write this letter and hopefully help to right this oversight or neglect. On our website, we advertise our property as having a sandy beach, and we show aerial photos of the expansive beauty that was once Coco Plum Beach. Its been a drawing point to entice renters to visit our property. Its to the point now that I feel less than truthful, since the beach is nothing like the pictures, and far from sandy.Please understand that this has no bearing or conflict with turtle nests or turtle nesting. This kind of growth doesnt happen overnight. Kevin Carte MarathonDirectors an inspirationI am writing this letter to show my sincere gratitude for Marsha Garrettson, the director of the Upper Keys Animal Shelter. She has dedicated her life to the animals in our community.I have no idea what she is paid but I am certain that she is not doing this job for the money. She is rewarded in other ways. I am sure that her job can be heartbreaking, as well. I have known her for years. She is a selfless, kind, fair and generous woman. She goes above and beyond the call of duty, working all kinds of hours. The ones that she has made her life mission to help and save cannot use words to thank her. To me, she is an inspiration. She makes me want to be a better person. I know many people who feel the same way. What an asset to our community. Jane Rich Moore Key LargoClear the viewsI live in Marathon. I would like to thank who ever finally decided to get rid of the big cactus and other streetand sidewalk-blocking shrubs from the entry of my street. So many times I have had to pull so far out just to see traffic and bicyclists coming that I have nearly had incidents with bicyclists. I so appreciate being able to see clearly now. More areas need to be cleared so there are no accidents due to views being blocked. Again, a big thank you to those involved. Martha Leasure MarathonBus stop should remainThe Sombrero Beach Road bus stop in Marathon should not be removed. This spot is safer than U.S. 1. As far as the homeless or drunk people loitering in it, the Monroe County Sheriffs Office needs to enforce the rules. The bus stop is for transit customers. Why punish all for what a few do at the bus stop?Its wrong to make people stand, especially special-needs residents and senior citizens, at the main bus stop when they could sit and wait for the bus. The City Council needs to reconsider and leave the shelter and benches at the Sombrero Beach Road bus stop.Diane Scott MarathonLeon County judge had ruled gill-net ban an absurdity, appeals court overturns herAn appeals court showed reassuring regard for the rule of law and Floridas natural resources in overturning a Panhandle judges loopy ruling against the states net ban. Last fall, Leon County Circuit Court Judge Jackie Fulford put in jeopardy the voter-approved law banning the use of gill nets in state waters (a law that drew great opposition in the Keys, where commercial fishing is key to the economy). Though the ban had consistently been upheld in the courts, Fulford labeled it a legal absurdity and said the rules the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission developed to enact the amendment created an absolute mess. This was nonsense. Fulford is the one who made a mess of things. The First District Court of Appeal in Tallahassee last week found that Fulford ignored legal precedent in her ruling. The appeals court already had restored the net ban while her ruling was under appeal, something she had refused to do. Some background: In 1994, 72 percent of Florida voters endorsed a constitutional amendment calling for the gill-net ban. Recreational fishing groups resorted to an amendment campaign after influential commercial fishing interests continually blocked efforts to adopt meaningful safeguards for our fisheries. The ban has proved remarkably effective. The numbers of sportfish such as snook, redfish and trout increased dramatically. Mullet, various types of bait fish and other species whose numbers had dwindled also enjoyed tremendous population increases. The commercial fishing industry has repeatedly challenged the law, but judges consistently upheld it. But Fulford sided with the commercial industrys claim that the 2-inch mesh size required by the state rules kills a significant number of juvenile fish, which could harm fish populations. The more thoughtful and studious First District Court of Appeal noted the rule challenge had been addressed in a 2007 case, where the judge found the FWC had presented expert testimony that the mullet population remains healthy and has actually increased since the implementation of the two-inch net mesh limitation. This testimony ... is sufficient to establish a rational basis for (the commissions) adoption of the challenged rules as a means of furthering the goal of protecting marine resources. Fulfords ruling ignored judicial precedent and biological evidence, and deserved to be jettisoned. The appeals court decision may not be the end of the litigation. The netters will likely plan other attacks. But after 20 years, its time the commercial fishing industry accepted the will of the people and the law. Tampa Tribune This is the current condition of the beach seaweed and not sand.County paying Gottwald $45KA lengthy lawsuit between Monroe County and a past animal-services provider for the Middle Keys has come to a close but the county isnt dropping its legal battle with a Key West accountant.Wednesday, the County Commission unanimously agreed with some members reluctant to do so to pay Linda Gottwald, former director of Stand Up For Animals, $45,000.Assistant County Attorney Christine Limbert-Barrows told commissioners its a business decision and not an admission of guilt or liability. County Attorney Bob Shillinger views the settlement as a smart move.The cost of going to trial would have exceeded the amount we would have been able to recover, given the circumstances, Shillinger said. A 2010 audit conducted by the county after Gottwald asked for more money to operate alleged she used taxpayer money to buy a sports utility vehicle for herself, in addition to paying for personal entertainment and utility bills. Gottwald was also accused of using Monroe Countys money on a planned animal shelter in Traverse City, Mich. Gottwald has denied wrongdoing. She said she did what the county paid her to do under her contract run the Marathon Animal Shelter and be responsible for animal control from around mile marker 17 up to Lower Matecumbe Key. Gottwald separated Stand Up from the county in August 2010. The same month, then-Monroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlin froze two of her bank accounts, per county request. A legal war broke out when Gottwald appealed Audlins decision and won after the Third District Court of Appeal in Miami ruled the money to be freed up. The county then sued Gottwald, which was followed by a separate motion filed by Gottwald for $69,000 in attorneys fees and costs incurred during her fight against the injunction that froze her bank accounts. Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys replaced Gottwalds group, also under county contract.Monroe County Com missioner Heather Carruthers, like the other commissioners meeting Wednesday, be moaned paying Gottwald this time around but feels the settlement was in the countys best interests.It was a losing battle and Im very sorry how it turned out. I still believe the county did the right thing by pursuing this, Carruthers said. It was a difficult decision but in the long run, it would have cost additional taxpayer money. At the very least, it will help us strengthen our contracts moving forward.The board also voted to have Paul Mills, a Key West based CPA whom the county hired to audit Gottwalds books, repay $8,000. Carruthers said Mills did a less than stellar performance on audits. Limbert-Barrows told commissioners Mills reneged on a previous agreement to pay the county $8,000.Mills is surprised Monroe County is attempting to collect $8,000 from him and told the Keynoter he has no intention of paying. Mills said while he regularly conducted audits on behalf of Stand Up, he did not audit the organization in 2010, the same year the county audited the animal-services provider.

This is no way to treat our tourists, County Mayor Sylvia Murphy said. Commissioner Heather Carruthers cited personal experience in backing the push for stricter rules on towing cars or trucks from private property.Having been the victim of predatory towing, Carruthers said, I am very much in favor of us doing something to eliminate the consternation, headaches, financial problem and the damage to our reputation that it causes.Commissioner David Rice added, Without elaboration, ditto. With direction from three commissioners at the Key West meeting, staff attorneys will prepare draft regulations for review at an upcoming commission meeting. An Islamorada towing ordinance enacted in May likely will serve as a template. Using an existing Upper Keys law simplifies enforcement, Murphy and Carruthers said. Were having quite a problem on Key Largo, Murphy said. Islamorada took care of their [problem]. We should see if can do something similar. Some towing companies authorized to tow from private property are catching people on vacation, when theyre diving or fishing, Murphy said.

Leanne Brown didnt set out to write a buzz-worthy cookbook for people who want fine-dining taste on a food stamp budget. Because Good and Cheap, a beautifully photographed e-book packed with low-cost, fuss-free recipes, actually began simply as a masters thesis for the 29-year-old New York University food studies program graduate. But after Brown posted it online as a PDF it got attention on Reddit, the social networking and news website, then turned into a surprise hit, spawning a Kickstarter fundraising campaign to cover the cost of printing hardcover copies for the people who need them most.Her approach to the cookbook using the same kind of high-quality photography and innovative flavor combinations that go into cookbooks aimed at people with $6,000 ranges in their kitchens is part of a new breed of campaigns to help people eat well on a tight budget. The goal is simple make it attractive to cook from scratch, almost always the best and cheapest way to eat well without spending a lot.Recipes in Good and Cheap are healthy and enticing. Think vibrant vegetable jambalaya and a fun section called simply Things on Toast. Brown wrote the book partly because she wanted a thesis that could have a life outside academia. She also wanted to research whether she could eat the kind of food she likes to cook on a food-stamp budget (around $4.43 a day).If you can cook theres so much you can do with limited ingredients, says Brown. If you dont know how to cook, youll feel pretty trapped.Following the success of the PDF version of the book, Brown launched a Kickstarter campaign to pay for a print run with the goal of raising enough money to donate hard copies through organizations serving the low-income community. The campaign started with a goal of $10,000 and ended with more than $144,000.Other programs aiming to help low-income families eat better by cooking more have taken similar approaches, hoping a gourmet touch can help sell the idea of saving money by getting in the kitchen.Its not about us lecturing people. We need to get people cooking, says Greg Silverman, a restaurateur, chef and director of national partnerships for the Share Our Strength No Kid Hungry Campaign.For example, the National WIC Association, the education arm of the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children, produces a popular calendar each year that includes smart food shopping, preparation, cooking and other nutrition tips, as well as easyto-make, low-cost recipes utilizing WIC foods all professionally photographed.

The facility will be located at approximate latitude 24o 40' 38"N, longitude 81o 30' 31" W at 780 Blimp Road, Cudjoe Key, Florida 33042, in Monroe County. The Department has assigned permit file number FLA671932-003-DW1P to the proposed project. The intent to issue, application file, and draft permit are available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Department's South District Office, 2295 Victoria Ave., Suite 364, Fort Myers, Florida 33901, at phone number (239) 344-5600. The Department will issue the permit as drafted unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, within fourteen days of receipt of notice. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below. A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request an extension of the time for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel before the end of the time period for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, also allows that any person who has asked the Department in writing for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or request for an extension of time within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is based must contain the following information, as indicated in Rule 28-106.201, Florida Administrative Code: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or identification number, if known; (b) The name, address, any e-mail address, any facsimile number, and telephone number of the petitioner, if the petitioner is not represented by an attorney or a qualified representative; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner's representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner's substantial interests will be affected by the determination; (c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the Department's decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the Department's proposed action; (f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the Department's proposed action, including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the Department to take with respect to the Department's proposed action. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Department's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation under Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, is not available for this proceedingPublished Keynoter 7-19-14 Dont make the same mistake this guy made...

Review, 4BBSports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Tech goodies to bring alongYour swimsuit and your sunscreen are in the luggage, and your boarding passes are all printed out. But did you remember your gadgets and chargers? Did you download enough entertainment? Do you know where youre going?In my travels, Ive come across a number of products and services worth bringing along:Keep them chargedDuh. Youll need not only the charging cord, but also the unit for plugging into the wall outlet. Bring a power strip, too, if youre sharing a room. Otherwise, youll be fighting for the few outlets that arent hidden behind furniture or dangerously near a sink. If youre going abroad, bring adapters and make sure your chargers will work with the voltage there. Also consider ways to keep your gadgets charged during the day. If youre driving, bring a USB charger that plugs into your cars cigarette lighter. There are also portable chargers you can plug gadgets into. Some phone cases also serve as spare batteries. One product that stands out is Mophies Space Pack for the iPhone 5 and 5s. It not only doubles battery life, but also gives you additional storage for photos and videos. A 16-gigabyte version retails for $150, while a 32-gigabyte one costs $180. A 64-gigabyte version starts selling next week for $250.With it, I get about two full days of general phone use. Its clunky to use, though.You need Mophies free Space app to copy photos and other content to the Space Packs storage. You then delete those files from the iPhone. Its like having an external hard drive and having to manage what goes into it. Once I move photos to the pack, Im not able to view them through the phones Photos and iPhoto apps. Because of these constraints, and the fact that the case is bulky and heavy, Im better off with a regular, unpowered case when Im near chargers. The Space Pack is good for trips and other times I know Id be draining the battery or filling up the phones storage faster than usual.Keep organizedIve been a loyal user of TripIt since I reviewed it in 2007.

Theyd like to see labels on the front of packages and a clearer statement of which ingredients are good and which should be avoided.The U.S. Foodand Drug Administration is working on a label overhaul and has proposed two different versions.Writing separately in the New England Journal of Medicine on Wednesday, former FDA Commissioner David Kessler and former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention official William H. Dietz say the FDA doesnt go far enough. Dietz, the CDCs former director of the Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity, is now with George Washington University.Five ways these experts, and others, say nutrition facts labels could be improved:Indicate overall nutritional value. The FDA proposed a nutrition facts overhaul in February that made a lot of improvements sought by the public health community. There was more emphasis on calories, revised serving sizes closer to what Americans really eat and a new line for added sugars. But Kessler says there is nothing in the new framework that actively encourages consumers to purchase food rich in the fruits, vegetables and whole grains that are rightfully considered real food. Both Kessler and Dietz say the panels emphasis on specific nutrients gives food companies the ability to make claims on the fronts of their packages that can mislead consumers. For example, sugary or fattyfoods can entice customers by adding fiber and promoting that.

NEW LOCATION Does it float? Enter this raceTrashy items like PVC pipe, buckets, pool noodles, plastic wrap, lawn furniture or cardboard can be bound together as hulls during Key Largos Anything That Floats regatta set for Aug. 16.On the third Saturday of August each year, organizers of the wacky race task resourceful crews of two, four or more people to reuse, recycle and regenerate floatable items found around the house to construct their boats.Boat builders need to bind together their vessels with all-purpose duct tape, plastic wrap or other sticky substances long enough to hold team members inside during the half-mile dash through a buoyed course set in Blackwater Sound from Key Largos Caribbean Club to Sundowners and back. Teams can employ oars, paddles or even hoist old Tshirts as sails to propel their vessel. However, entries can be disqualified for incorporating offenders including motors, foam, floats, rafts or pool toys. A captains party is scheduled for 7 p.m. Aug. 15 at Seor Frijoles, mile marker 103.9 bayside. Aug. 16 is race day, with team check-in beginning at 2 p.m. at Senor Frijoles. Race events begin at 3 p.m., and boats depart from the waterfront dock at the adjacent Sundowners Restaurant. The offbeat challenge is free to enter and to watch. Prizes are awarded in categories such as best-costumed crew, most creative vessel, fastest vessel, best hard-luck story and vessel containing the most participants that still floats. Participants must be 13 or older.Key Largos waterfront locations offer excellent viewing areas where spectators can cheer on team favorites and enjoy sunset with post-race live music and more fun.For more event information, go to www.keylargo anythingthatfloats race.com.Make your own vessel out of various trashKEY LARGOTHAT TIME OF YEAR The father and son team of Gary and Raymond, from Tallahassee, flank Gold Reserve charter boat mate Mike, a.k.a.

He also caught the tournaments largest single permit, measuring 32 inches, on the third day of the fly-only challenge. Greg Vincent of Grand Bahama Island, Bahamas, caught and released two permit, including a 25.5-inch fish, and was named first runner-up with 300 points. Vincent, who took top honors in the 2013 tournament, fished with Capt. Justin Rea of Sugarloaf Key. Ivar Bolander of Santa Rosa, Calif., followed Vincent in the standings. He caught and released a permit measuring 27 inches and earned 150 points while fishing with Capt. Steve Friedman of Islamorada. New York City angler Nick Worswick took top honors for bonefish releases. Guided by Capt. Mike Bartlett of Key West, he released six bonefish. Organizers also recognized Kat Vallilee of Key West, the first woman to fish the tournament. Guided by Capt. Drew Delashmit of Cudjoe Key, Vallilee caught her first-ever permit on fly during the events final fishing day.Anglers on 15 boats released a total of 15 permit in the tournament named for the internationally acclaimed Brown, who died in 2003.

What do those mean? Are these numbers high or low, good or bad, what do you do with it?Make ingredient lists clearer.Shoppers may turn over a package of food and look for sugar on its ingredient list. What that consumer may not know is that sugar could be listed as maltose, dextrose, sucrose, corn syrup, brown rice syrup, maple syrup, highfructose corn syrup, honey or a variety of fruit juice concentrates, among other ways.Tiny type, complex names, and confusing formats make many ingredient lists almost impossible to read or understand, Kessler says. He added, If we instead defined all forms of sugar as a single ingredient, sugar might emerge near the top of many products lists.Create a daily value for sugar. Though public health specialists have overwhelmingly praised the FDAs proposed addition of an added sugars line that would distinguish from naturally occurring sugars, Kessler says the agency needs to include a line suggesting how much sugar people should eat daily. The FDA has said they didnt include a line because there is no accepted recommendation for how much sugar should be consumed on a daily basis.Put labels on the front, too. The FDA said in 2009 that it was developing proposed nutritional standards that would have to be met before manufacturers place claims on the fronts of packages. That effort has since stalled as the industry has said it is working on its own standards, a move that has frustrated public health advocates. Kessler proposes front-ofpackage labels that would list the top three ingredients, the calorie count and the number of additional ingredients in bold type. FDA spokeswoman Theresa Eisenman says the agency is still working on a front-of-pack label, but is monitoring what industry is doing.Give the labels some context. At a recent public meeting, several experts told the FDA they would endorse a version of the nutrition facts label that would sort nutrients by get enough and avoid too much. The FDA offered that version as a second option in Februarys proposal. Dr. Frank Hu of the Harvard School of Public Health said sorting nutrients that way is easier for people to understand than reading the column that lists the percent of the daily recommended value of a nutrient. Pepin Tuma of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics agreed, saying nobody wants to do math. The food industry protested. Telling shoppers what they should get enough of and what they should avoid goes beyond just the facts, said Donna Garren of the American Frozen Food Institute.Experts say sugar info is lackingFrom Food, 1B
Cops, prosecutors tossing a partyNothing says summer like a community party. The Key West Police Department Police Athletic League is teaming up with the Monroe County State Attorneys Office and many community partners to throw a summer bash on July 26 at Bayview Park from noon until 2 p.m. The park is at Truman Avenue and Jose Marti Drive. The free party will feature games, goodies, bounce houses, a basketball tournament and more. There will also be an opportunity to ID your children, and refreshments will be served. TripIt proved helpful this spring when I went with two friends to Yosemite National Park in California. I forwarded everyones flight confirmations to keep track of who was arriving when. I added details on hikes we were planning and the dress code for a fancy dinner. I then shared a link with everyone. TripIt also kept track of buses, subways and ferries I needed in Chicago, Denver and San Francisco. The basic service is free. I havent found a need to pay $49 a year for TripIt Pro, which offers information on alternate seats or flights and ways to track frequent flier programs. TripIt Pro also offers alerts when gates and departure times change, but I get those free anyway as TripIt tries to show the benefits of upgrading.

These gadgets transmit whatevers playing on your digital music player over an open frequency on the FM dial. I bought Griffins iTrip from a Best Buy in Minnesota in 2009 for about $50. It has become essential for all my road trips. I simply plug the iTrip cord into my iPods headphone jack. I then tune the car radio to an open FM frequency that iTrip finds for me. Podcasts, audiobooks and regular music come over the car speakers.There are separate models for Apple devices depending on the type of charging port it has. For other devices, use the iTrip Auto Universal Plus, which uses the standard headphone jack. If youre getting Space Pack, youll want this universal version, too, as the case covers up the iPhones regular port. This model also has a USB port to charge gadgets while driving.

Judd Apatows film rightfully ushered in a new era in comedy, but it has also inspired a now-sizable cottage industry of thin movies (The Hangover, The Five-Year Engagement, Bad Teacher, Horrible Bosses, The Other Woman) with concepts boasting good titles but shallow stories. Of these, only one (The Five-Year Engagement) had Apatows imprimatur. He and his cohorts have mostly moved on to telling stories about various seminal chapters of life child birth (Knocked Up), high-school graduation (Superbad), young parenthood (Neighbors), 30s singledom (Bridesmaids), middle age (This Is 40) and many of these make up some of the best comedies of the last decade. Sex Tape, however, belongs to the former group and it marks a low point despite coming from several Apatow acolytes. Its directed by Jake Kasdan, a consulting producer on Freaks and Geeks who went on to direct Bad Teacher. Sex Tape reteams that films lead duo, Jason Segel (a near-constant in Apatows world) and Cameron Diaz, the alwaysgame, wide-smiling muse for whats now been several generations of comedy. A screwball that takes its genre literally, Sex Tape is about a West L.A. married couple, Annie (Diaz) and Jay (Segel), trying to reawaken their love life after years of marriage and two kids. Following failed attempts with doubleknotted roller skates and new venues like the kitchen floor (I can see my to-do list, says Annie), they settle on making a porn for themselves that tours through the positions of The Joy of Sex. In the first of many outlandish plot twists, Jay hands out his old iPads like party favors at a get-together of friends and family. Hours afterward, an anonymous text makes him realize that each iPad has their video stored on it due to a syncing app he favors. The technological premise has already been debunked, but thats a minor issue for the movie. While this set-up could have gone somewhere interesting (shouldnt the video go viral?), the screenplay by Segel, his writer partners Nicholas Stoller (the director of the far superior and somewhat similarly themed Neighbors) and Kate Angelo bizarrely settles for a suburban nighttime odyssey wherein Jay and Annie try to take back the iPads. This includes a stop at their friends house, a similar couple played by Ellie Kemper and Rob Corddry; a visit to Annies prospective new boss, a family website CEO who wants to buy her blog (Rob Lowe); and a Los Angeles pornography warehouse (with a memorable uncredited cameo by Jack Black). In short, its a PG plot for an X-rated story. The movie is so desperate for laughs that it resorts to gags like a chasing dog that can open doors and Lowes family guru doing cocaine lines with Slayer pounding. Segels gratuitous fullfrontal nudity in Forgetting Sarah Marshall was far funnier and more surprising than anything in Sex Tape. He has slimmed down notably, seemingly going for a more grown-up (and, alas, less funny) screen presence. To its credit, theres a lightness to the film and the performers are uniformly likable. When Kemper and Corddry appear (their couple yearns to see the video as their own turn-on), you wish the movie would stick with them and their nervous energy. Sex Tape tries to somehow bridge the gap between the traditional romantic comedy and todays porn-addled digital world. Its a valiant effort, and there is something though only very little of Cary Grants scampering in Bringing Up Baby to Segels mishaps around the CEOs mansion. But Sex Tape doesnt sync.But the laughs are far and few in this failureBy JAKE COYLEAP Film WriterMOVIE REVIEWSex Tape, rated PG, 95 minutes, playing in Key West and Tavernier.Photo courtesy SONY PICTURESCameron Diaz and Jason Segel in a scene from Sex Tape.

The facility will be located at approximate latitude 24 degrees 40 38"N, longitude 81 degres 30 31" W at 780 Blimp Road, Cudjoe Key, Florida 33042, in Monroe County The Department has assigned permit file number FLA671932-003-DW1P to the proposed project. The intent to issue, application file, and draft permit are available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Departments South District Office, 2295 Victoria Ave., Suite 364, Fort Myers, Florida 33901, at phone number (239) 344-5600. The Department will issue the permit as drafted unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, within fourteen days of receipt of notice. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below. A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Departments proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request an extension of the time for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel before the end of the time period for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, also allows that any person who has asked the Department in writing for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or request for an extension of time within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that persons right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida A dministrative Code. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Departments action is based must contain the following information, as indicated in Rule 28-106.201, Florida A dministrative Code: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agencys file or identification number, if known; (b) The name, address, any e-mail address, any facsimile number, and telephone number of the p etitioner, if the p petitioner is not represented by an attorney or a qualified representative; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioners representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioners substantial interests will be affected by the determination; (c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the Departments decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the Departments proposed action; (f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the Depatrments proposed action, including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the Department to take with respect to the Departments proposed action. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Departments final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.

BOAT SALES AND MARINA BOAT SALES AND MARINACaribee CaribeeVisit us: Mile Marker 81.5 Bayside Islamorada, FL 33036 | 305.664.3431www.caribeeboats.com He comes every year and is the namesake of his grandfather, a Russian-born farmer that was said to be one of the toughest men there ever was. The small town of Milliken, Colo., is just north of Denver and where the legend of Jake Hergenreder originates. No one could outwork Grandpa Jake, and if you crossed him he wouldnt back down, ever. Grandson Jake Barker lives up to that reputation every day at the young age of 15. Although the tasks are different, the determination is the same. Jakes two younger sisters are both disabled by a genetic disorder that requires constant care from him and his parents. Jake, just as his grandfather did, works hard and never backs down from whatever the girls need from him. The yearly birthday trip to the Florida Keys is something his parents have arranged to help him find a bit of relief from the responsibilities he faces. This year, he wanted to go shark fishing. Capt. Seth Hopp told his cousin Jake Barker to take a seat on the boat and hold on. He then throttled the backcountry skiff up to a comfortable 20 mph through the Key West Harbor mooring field. The pastel colors reflected off the water and onto the hulls of the moored sailboats and combined with the powderpuff clouds dotting the western horizon. It was surreal. Jake just stared ahead, not saying a word, just taking it all in. The plan was to wind back through Calda Channel and then head east. The first part of the shark experience would be to catch fresh shark bait. As the skiff settled to a slow drift, Seth handed Jake a rod with a jig and directed him to start working the channel edges with a series of jerks while reeling, then repeat the process until a bait was hooked. It wasnt long before a jack crevalle crashed the lure and became shark bait No. 1. A few casts later and a yellow jack made the same mistake. With the switching tide, timing couldnt have been better, and it was time to set up for the sharks. The process was perfectly executed by Seth, and before long Jake was hooked up to a full-sized nurse shark that primed his biceps for what would come next. After the nurse shark was released, a more powerful and faster lemon shark forced young Jake to break a sweat as the sun sat high and the lemon shark ran long. Nothing was in his mind other than landing the shark. He was in his element, taking relief from worry and responsibility, living in the moment. The first lemon shark was leadered and then another much-larger lemon shark was lost after a lengthy battle. Then there was the 10-foot hammerhead shark that wouldnt eat. Those are the ones that will ensure that Jake is back next year. Its always the one that got away or the big fish sighting that get the most play in the stories that are sure to be told after the week is over. Jake has stories to tell for sure. Capt.

RedGhost targets reds and bonefishDesigned for anglers between ages 9 and 25, the RedGhost Stalk backcountry fishing tournament is set for July 27 and 28. RedGhost anglers compete for earned points for landing redfish and the elusive ghost-like bonefish during the competition, which is focused largely on fun and conservation. Proceeds benefit the Islamorada Fishing and Conservation Trust, which is devoted to protecting Keys marine resources and promoting recreational fishing through youth tournaments. Anglers can enter either the junior division for ages 9-16 or the young adult division for ages 17-25. The all-release tournament kicks off with a mandatory rules meeting at 5 p.m. July 27 at the Islamorada Fishing Club, mile marker 82 bayside in Islamorada. Fishing is slated for July 28 with lines in at 6:30 a.m. and lines out at 3 p.m. A tournament banquet and awards presentation follows at 6 p.m. at the Islamorada Fishing Club. The tournament is limited to 40 anglers typically one angler per boat, although up to two are permitted. Professional guides are not required. Entry fee is $125 per angler and includes a tournament shirt, ditty bag and social ticket. Additional social tickets for non-anglers are $35 each.

Teammates Randy Hamilton of Montgomery, Ala., and Brett Corley of Key Largo weighed in three dolphin totaling 95.7 pounds for the win. Their catches included the tournaments largest fish, a 40.2-pounder. Capt. Scott Stoky of Key Largo was at the helm. Although two fish can be weighed per day, the three biggest fish secure the win in this uniquely formatted two-day boat tournament. Placing second with a combined weight of 81.6 pounds for a $2,250 prize was team Hey Papa. The team consisted of Capt. Justin Matson, Zach Bennett and Fred Matson, all of Tavernier, along with Chris Eckert of Islamorada and Tommy King of Key Largo.
