All indications are that it has been another successful summer, Daniel Samess, chief executive of the Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce, said Tuesday. Weve seen another uptick in our [hotel room] occupancy rate, and in the average daily rate, he said. Bed-tax collections are up. Travelers to Key West have had to deal with recently completed work on North Roosevelt Boulevard, one of the islands main routes to Duval Street and Old Town. The work took more than two years and cost $41.5 million and lots of traffic headaches. About 615 rooms combined at four Key West hotels were closed for renovations at the time of the road construction. They were expected to reopen in July but are behind schedule. Even on top of all that, it was still pretty busy, said Key West Chamber of Commerce Vice President Virginia Panico.

Those who dont accept the challenge to get doused are asked to donate to the ALS Association.CHALLENGE ACCEPTED See Tourism, 2AForster automatically re-electedThe Islamorada Village Council race received twolast minute contenders just as the qualifying period ended at noon Tuesday. Joseph Buddy Pinder is running against incumbent Deb Gillis for Seat 1. Former Councilman Jim Mooney is challenging Ken Philipson for Seat 3. Mooney and Pinder could not be reached for comment by press time. In Seat 2, Councilman David Purdo is facing challenger Dennis Ward, a former Monroe County state attorney. Councilman Mike Forster, who represents Seat 5, is the only incumbent not facing a challenger, meaning hes automatically re-elected to a two-year term. The race for Seat 4, occupied by Mayor Ted Blackburn, is the most crowded, and it got more so late last week. Contenders are hotelier Paul Bates, who qualified late Tuesday morning; land and business owner, and former three-time Islamorada Mayor Chris Sante; retired marina owner and also a former Mayor Bob Johnson; and Janet Wood, a real estate agent and volunteer with the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary. All the candidates in that race said they are vying for Seat 4 because there is no incumbent. Blackburn is not seeking re-election. Johnson initially went after Purdos seat, but changed his mind in July. He said he switched because it made little sense to him to run against an incumbent. Johnson, a former marina owner, first served on the council from 2002 to 2006. He ran and won again in 2010, but resigned months later because he was experiencing chest pains. Wood, 58, was raised in Islamorada, and grew up in a house at mile marker 82 behind where the Ace Hardware Store now stands. She is a member of the Florida Keys Board of Realtors, the Upper Keys Rotary Club and the Islamorada Chamber of Commerce, and she served as a luminaire chairwoman for the 2013 Relay for Life race benefiting the American Cancer Society. Bates, who ran unsuccessfully for Village Council four times, is a longtime critic of the village government and has three ongoing lawsuits against Islamorada. All of the litigation revolves around his Coconut Cove Resort. Sante, 59, served on the council from 2002 to 2008. His colleagues on the dais named him mayor emeritus shortly after he decided not to run for re-election because he was vying for the elected county property appraisers job, which he did not get.

Even as she hit her 90s, she remained spry and sharp. Mrs. Gradick, 96, died Saturday, leaving behind a community for which she served in many capacities. She is an icon for this school, said Marathon High School Athletic Director Teresa Konrath, whose indoor sports teams play in the Katherine Gradick Gymnasium.Former head of Marathon High dies at age 96MARATHONStill no agreementDifferences over new proposals for regulations in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary surfaced early at Tuesdays Sanctuary Advisory Council meeting. Members of the volunteer panel argued over whether a report from its Ecosystem Protection Working Group went far enough in protecting resources. Clinton Barras, a Lower Keys tourism representative, said he was rather disappointed that a detailed proposal on revised marine zoning along the reef tract did not include more no-take zones.

No one was injured. Monroe County Fire Rescue responded to the airport around 11:20 a.m. The plane is a twinengine Beechcraft with two people in it who were headed to Belize with missionary supplies, said Capt. Timmy Leonard. They were near Cuba waters, Leonard said. The guys on board were frightened. They were unsure whether that motor would get them to Key West. Their names and hometowns werent available.Illegal lobsters land man in jailA Miami Gardens man was charged Monday with several resource violations after he was found with illegal lobster near South Pine Channel in the Lower Keys. Florida Fish and wildlife Conservation Commission Officer Adam Garrison and Investigator Jeremy Munkelt were on water patrol when they saw one person diving along the rocks with a pole spear and one person under the bridge. Agency spokesman Bobby Dube said the marine officers approached the man in the water, who said he was spearfishing. Garrison then talked to the man under the bridge and asked about any fish or lobster he had. He denied having any, Dube said. But Garrison reportedly saw a towel hidden in the rocks along the waters edge and, under it, was a bag of lobster, Dube said. There were 23 of them 21 of which were undersized and five that were speared (spearing lobster is illegal). Carlos Magraner, a 25year-old delivery man, was charged with having 21 undersized lobster, five speared lobster, 23 lobster over the bag limit and not having a lobster measuring device. slowed a little this week but were gearing up for a fabulous Labor Day weekend. Labor Day is Sept. 1. Key West Inter national Airport counted 24,859 arriving passengers in June, even with Southwest Airlines pul ling out of Key West by June 7. For the first six months of 2014, Key Wests 221,734 air arrivals are 6 percent ahead of the same sixmonth period in 2013. Cruise-ship arrivals 43,872 passengers in June alone are putting passengers on our streets, Panico said. The ferry service to Key West from Fort Myers Beach brought 5,300 people in June, a 20 percent increase from the June 2013. Weve been advertising more for families and families often drive in, Panico said. Our events like Hemingway Days always bring people in. She added, Its been a quiet tropical-storm season, and the weathers been unseasonably cold up north. That could mean a good fall. Samess said summer seasons have improved steadily since the economy started its recovery four years ago. Its been pretty consistent. When theres an improving economy, that increases consumer confidence, he said. People feel more comfortable about saying, lets take weeklong or weekend trip to the Keys. The states Visit Florida office, the publicprivate company that promotes Florida tourism, said Tuesday that an estimated 24 million people came to Florida in the April-through-June period, up 3 percent from 2013. About 3.8 million visitors from overseas and Canada came to the state in the second quarter, a record high. Statewide tourist-development taxes were up 10 percent, and room rates improved 7 percent over 2013. Figures for July and August were pending at press time.Numbers strongFrom Tourism, 1APair: Lawsuit frivolousMARATHONTwo former Marathon officials being sued for allegedly conspiring to devalue a former bar and package store say theres nothing to a lawsuit filed against them and the city Thursday asking for damages. The suit filed by the estate of Joseph Ardolino, former owner of the Overseas Liquor & Lounge across U.S. 1 from the Marathon Community Park, names former Mayor Mike Cinque, whos running for City Council this year, and former Planning Commissioner Ralph Lucignano, owner of Marathon Liquors. Attorneys Richard Warner and John Parente, representing Ardolinos estate, allege Cinque trespassed onto the Overseas property when he had sewer lines installed in December 2005 for his restaurant, the Stuffed Pig. The lawyers claim Lucignano was involved in writing an ordinance prohibiting package stores from operating within 1,500 feet of each or schools, effectively not allowing the Overseas to reopen. However, the Overseas does holds a valid liquor license, city Planning Director George Garrett said. Ardolino owned the Overseas and died in 2005. The business closed in 2008. Tim OConnell bought it in 2013 for $475,000 and is in the middle of renovating it. Cinque calls the lawsuit frivolous and political in nature. This lawsuit is full of blatant lies. Its a personal attack on me, Cinque said. He said the property where he installed the sewer lines was owned by the city in 2005 and 2006, not by the estate. The lawsuit claims the estate did own part of the property Cinque dug up and that under Florida law, an easement agreement from the state was required. Warner said Cinque never got an easement. The city should be behind the estate in improving the property, Warner said. Instead its just the opposite. The citys hope is to try and hurt the estate. The suit also claims the citys law regulating liquor sales the so-called 1,500-foot rule was designed to hurt the Overseas. The filing claims the Overseas is the only package store in Marathon within 1,500 feet of a school (Stanley Switlik Elementary School). Warner believes the ordinance was written specifically to deny the Overseas a liquor license while protecting Lucignanos liquor business from competition. Lucignano said the ordinance, passed in 2006, was written to protect smaller liquor-selling package stores from being dominated by bigger stores like Publix and Walgreens. Both sought package-store permits. The stores are at mile marker 50, between the Brass Monkey Lounge (also a package store) and Lucignanos liquor store. In April 2012, Monroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlin reversed a City Council decision denying the estate the right to sell liquor. The decision was reversed because the city did not properly notify the estate of the 1,500-foot prohibition by mail. Marathon Planning Director George Garrett said the then-council did not deny the estate a license. Its a twist on nonconforming uses, Garrett said of the denial to sell liquor. Garrett did not elaborate due to the lawsuit. Warner said I tried to corner the liquor market at the west end of town, Lucignano said. Its a complete fabrication and slanderous. Cinque made an offer to buy the Overseas for $600,000 in the fall of 2007. The estate turned down the offer, listing the Overseas at $1 million. The whole thing doesnt make any sense. Its all fabricated, theres no truth to it, Lucignano said.Cinque calls it political, waste of timeBy WILLIAM AXFORD waxford@keynoter.comThe impact she had on the school will last for a very, very long time. She will be greatly missed. Mrs. Gradick was a career educator, starting as a physical education teacher in 1953 at what was then Sue M. Moore School (now the Middle Keys operations center for the state Department of Transportation). Thats the year she and her husband Jack, whom she married in 1949, moved to Marathon. She served as principal of Marathon High from 1966 to 1986. She was the first woman principal in Monroe County, as well as one of the first women principals in the state of Florida, said Marathon City Manager Mike Puto, a longtime friend and her care-giver in her final years. Being in the administration, that was usually a mans world. She broke that barrier here. Mrs. Gradick was born in Philadelphia on Jan. 30, 1918. She graduated from Temple University in Philadelphia in 1950. She tried out for the 1948 Olympics in London in track and field, and gymnastics. However, she blew out a knee during a trial run and couldnt compete. But athletics remained a large part of her life, as she competed in senior sports competitions well into her 80s. At 2003s U.S.A. Track and Field National Master Indoor Championships in Boston, she won gold and silver medals and set a record for her age group (85-89) in the shot put, heaving it 14 feet, 11.75 inches. She also set a record (18 feet, 1 inch) in the 12pound weight toss, but quickly lost it. The gal that beat me is my 87year-old friend that I room with, she said then. Mrs. Gradick competed the next year, too, but got injured in the hammerthrow competition, breaking a femur. Still, her toss got her second place. Kay was a constant source of energy, said John Dick of Marathon, a member of the Monroe County School Board. She demanded and got things for Marathon. Because of her tenacity, Marathon and Key West [high schools] were equal. Mrs. Gradick was involved in the Marathon Rotary Club, a leader of the Marathon Alumni Athletic Association and a past member of Marathons Parks and Recreation Committee. Her husband died in 1981. They had no children. A private service will be held in Marathon. A public celebration of life is planned for the near future. Puto said photos, writing and other tributes to Mrs. Gradick can be sent to him at putom@ci.marathon.fl.us and may be incorporated into the ceremony. She always told me, Have the courage to stand up and speak, but also have the courage to sit down and listen, Puto said. I will never forget that. Her legacy will live on.Source of energyFrom Gradick, 1A abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJ K MORTIMER, LindaPassed awayatage64onAugust 1,2014bornAugust8,1949 ShewasbattlingCervical Cancer.

Council members who served on the Ecosystem Panel, which held more than 20 meetings throughout the Keys, disputed that description.Nothing was done nonchalantly. Talk to people who were there, diving representative Joe Weatherby said. I like preservation, Im here for tourism and I think [preservation] is good for business. But I heard from people who felt very differently. Citing the highly contentious nature of some testimony at workinggroup sessions, charterfishing representative Rob Harris said, You may not believe it went far enough but it went as far as the working group thought it should go. Working group [members] worked their butts off and it shows, tourism representative Andy Newman said. I think they made a tremendous amount of progress in terms of protection. Dave Vaughn of Mote Marine Laboratory said the sanctuary has not gone far enough to respond to an environmental survey that shows a failing grade in a number of areas. The Sanctuary Advisory Council met Tuesday in Key Largo to review the working groups 73-page report, and make its own recommendations to the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.Discussion and council votes on specific details of the report continued at press time Tuesday. A majority of the Ecosystem Protection Working Group recommended boundary or rule changes at 11 existing sanctuary protected zones, and creation of seven new areas. New areas proposed were Turtle Rocks and Basin Hill Shoals in the Upper Keys, Turtle Shoals in the Middle Keys, Wonderland and two areas at West Washerwoman in the Lower Keys, and Western Dry Rocks in the Marquesas. Recommendations from the full Advisory Council will be considered as state and federal officials consider new management alternatives and write a draft environmentalimpact statement, expected to be released for comment in mid-2015. Any changes eventually approved may not be enacted until late 2016 or early 2017. In early discussion Tuesday, council members acknowledged that changes to the Keys sanctuary management plan, largely unchanged since 1997, should be made more frequently. On such a contentious issue, you can only go so far, said Jerry Lorenz, an Audubon of Florida scientist. You have to make incremental steps and we dont seem to do that. Members also raised concern about possible damage from so many boats out there in the twoday lobster mini-season at the end of each July. Capt. David Dipre of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said without mini-season, more commercial lobster traps would be robbed early in the eight-month season, which starts Aug. 6. Its important to keep the criminal violations down and the commercial guys from being robbed, he said.Plans not finalFrom Sanctuary, 1A GRADICK CGC #A57773 Impact Doors & Windows keys infonet.com O M Bbtn bf DnrbnFLORIDA KEYS ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE ASSOCIATION, INC.MONDAY, AUGUST 25, 2014 t 1:00 P.M.FKEC TAVERNIER HEADQUARTERS, BOARD ROOM Published: // The Keynoter, Marathon, FL 33050

Kessler said he was diagnosed with leukemia around 2003 and was not physically able to adequately represent his clients, which led some of his clients to file complaints against him with the Pennsylvania Bar Ass ociation. Rather than fight the complaints, Kessler resigned in 2004, according to recently received documents. Kessler said his illness marked the first time in his career that he was the subject of any kind of formal grievance. He has been in remission for more than five years, but recent questions and accusations about the end of his legal career in Pennsylvania mostly from anonymous sources have forced Kessler to address his health history. I tried to put it out of my mind, Kessler said this week. I was fighting for my life at the time, and I made a decision to devote all my energy to getting better and my practice suffered. Kessler is running for the School Boards District 1 seat against Key West attorney Bobby Highsmith and Key West caterer Warren Leamard. The nonpartisan primary election is Aug. 26. If none of the candidates receive 50 percent of the vote plus one vote, the top two go to a Nov. 4 runoff. The volume of accusations of legal malpractice against Kessler has increased the past few days as the primary approaches. Several anonymous phone calls and e-mails have been recently received by this newspaper claiming unspecified complaints against Kessler resulted in the Pennsylvania Bar starting a disciplinary investigation against him. This is only partially true, according to documentation obtained by The Reporter/Keynoter. Six of Kesslers clients did file complaints against him because he did not represent the clients with adequate communication, action and did not return client files and disburse settlement proceeds as required by the Rules of Professional Conduct. Kessler, 58, said this week that the leukemia and subsequent treatment made it difficult, if not impossible, to properly serve his clients. Part of the toll the disease inflicted upon Kessler was robbing him of his sight for almost a year. It cut off the blood supply to my eyes, he said. I couldnt do anything. While in remission, Kessler moved to Key West in 2004. Rather than challenge the complaints, Kessler chose not to practice law in Pennsylvania again. He said all of his clients have since received their files and money. A 2006 letter written by Paul J. Killion, chief disciplinary counsel for the Penn sylvania Supreme Court, corroborates Kesslers stat ements to this newspaper that it was severe illness, not unethical behavior, that ended Kesslers 23-year legal career. I have reviewed the correspondence from our office to you regarding the nature of the allegations against you which led to your decision to sign a Resignation Statement and can confirm that the allegations did not involve criminal or immoral behavior, Killion wrote in the Oct. 20, 2006, letter. For his campaign, Highsmith has raised almost $30,000. Kesslers campaign has raised close to $18,000. Both candidates have far outraised Leamard, whose war chest is just above $5,000. Kessler has donated more than $4,000 to his campaign, compared to the $800 Highsmith gave to his own election effort.Supreme Court letter backs up candidates claimELECTION 2014CAMPUS CLEANUPStorage lot gets approvalThe Marathon Planning Commission on Monday approved a permit for Christians Landscaping Service for a supply yard at 41st Street and U.S. 1, adjacent to Jesse Hobbs Park. Owner Christian Mercado told the advisory board that gravel, dump trucks and other heavy equipment will be stored at the lot, which was recently raised with fill and had a small wall built around it. We do a lot of landscaping and need to have material here, Mercado said. I keep all my equipment here. Mercado had wanted the yard to be open from 8 a.m. to sunset. The board, meeting at the firehouse at Florida Keys Marathon Airport, decided to allow him to be open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. The issue doesnt need City Council approval. Mercado is required to plant 14 canopy trees, seven understory trees and 55 shrubs to serve as a 343foot buffer. Also Monday, the commission approved a noisecontrol plan for Discount Rock and Sand at its Aviation Boulevard transfer station and recycle site. It requires owner Eddie Lopez to build a barn-like structure inside of which work will be done. Twentyfoot trees will be planted around the barn. Earlier this year, residents of Stirrup Key, near the transfer site, fought its opening, citing noise and dirt coming from it. After several hearings, they lost their battle.Landscaping firm must plant foliageMARATHONStaff with the Monroe County Sheriffs Office and jail inmates spruce up the campus of Stanley Switlik Elementary School in Marathon on Aug. 10.

I have major concerns about how many life-threatening and deadline accidents are occurring in the middle but DOT seems to be more interested in parking. This workshop was much different from any I have ever attended. Usually a panel is seated at long tables and the public speaks and there is a good give and take of ideas. Not here. Here, each specific DOT person stood behind a table and you were directed to a particular person to voice your particular concern. You didnt get to hear what other peoples concerns were, you didnt get to comment or exchange or build on other peoples ideas and you didnt get any answers. As a matter of fact, I didnt see any DOT personnel writing anything down. I was told by a gentleman that this was a workshop, not a meeting. What? By the actions of the Friday workshop, I have been left with the impression that DOT believes government knows best, says it listened to what we had to say, we couldnt possibly have a workable solution better than theirs and its their 100-foot right of way and will do whatever they want even if there is a better idea. I am requesting the City Council to call a public meeting/workshop with DOT so the citizens of Marathon can ask pertinent questions, discuss ideas and solutions, and not have DOT nonsolution plans slammed down our throats. Karen Farley-Wilkinson MarathonThink of the animalsMonroe County Commissioner George Neugent states that a pressure sewage system, with grinder pumps, is the optimum sewage collection system for Big Pine Key. He says grinder pumps require less excavation and have a smaller footprint. While these may or may not be immediate benefits of a pressure sewage system, we need to consider the impact of alternative systems, long-term environmental issues and the unintended consequences of this political decision. Key deer thrive on Big Pine Key because there are two separate freshwater lenses that hold an estimated 20 million to 30 million gallons. The very existence of the Key deer, Lower Keys marsh rabbits, rice rats and now two species of endangered butterfly depend on the availability and quality of the water. These two lenses provide a freshwater source to the Blue Hole and small ponds that support the deer and plants needed for this a unique ecological system. According to studies, most of which were conducted in the 1980-1990 period, it takes about 2.5 years for water on the surface to make its way through the lens to the nearby waters. There are no recent studies on the size, movement or impact of a sewage system of any kind on the freshwater lens on Big Pine Key. A pressure system, with almost 1,200 grinder pumps and plastic pits, 30 lift stations and two booster stations, requires many miles of plastic pipe, thousands of thermal pipe welds, thousands of shut-off and check valves and dozens of concrete pits, all buried anywhere from 2 to 12 feet deep. Grinder pits hold only about one day of sewage during power outages, after which sewage either flows into your home or yard if you continue to flush. There is a 100 percent probability that there will be leaks: Thermal weld or valve failures, excavation or drilling through the pipe, or simply cracking of the plastic pipe or concrete pits over time. When that happens, the leaks, which are almost impossible to detect in a pressure system, will contaminate the freshwater lens, eventually creating a poisoned source of water for the fragile ecological system that will take years to dissipate. Simply meeting the minimum design requirements of state law is not adequate for this sensitive environment. The residents of the Keys and all of Florida need answers. When this system leaks, is there any way to find the leaks? How long will it be before the plastic piping begins to deteriorate? How do you keep 1,200 grinder pumps working when there is a power outage? What do the scientists say about the impact of sewage in the freshwater lens? Why is a system that costs more over the long term even being considered? Walter Drabinski Cudjoe KeyMaintain marriage ruleJudges in Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties have ruled that the Florida constitutional amendment passed in 2008 defending traditional marriage is unconstitutional. These exercises of raw judicial activism have been stayed pending appeal. Yet in light of these rulings, selfappointed progressive elites including the presumptive Democratic candidate for Florida governor are telling the majority of Florida citizens, along with millions of Americans who still support marriage as it has been understood for millennia, as a union of one man and one woman, to get with the program. Those who characterize themselves as proponents of tolerance will not tolerate their fellow citizens who oppose both the erosion of democratic self-government by aggressively activist judges legislating from the bench, and the further erosion of their freedoms of conscience and religion.Those who promote same-sex marriage in effect wish to consolidate the hollow victories of the sexual revolution. To promote what they deem marriage equality, the understanding of marriage as a conjugal union of a male and a female, in a permanent and exclusive commitment, conducive to welcoming and raising the children born from such a union, must be deconstructed and redefined. In much the same way that abortion and safe sex are promoted to protect one from the inevitable consequences of sexual activity, seen now as merely a recreational activity without any moral significance, the advocacy of same-sex marriage renders the idea of all marriages meaningless. Indeed, the argument that allowing same-sex partners to marry is about marriage equality is fallacious: Enacting same-sex marriage does not expand the institution of marriage to a once-excluded class. Rather, it reduces marriage to being just about the emotional gratification of two and why just two? persons. Such a redefinition defies the true nature of marriage as a comprehensive twoin-one-flesh union capable of uniting children with their mothers and fathers. Common sense increasingly uncommon today understands traditional marriage between one man and one woman as a natural fact rooted in procreation and sexual difference.Marriage equality today is the poster child of those who hold for a radical autonomy that believes that anyone can essentially create his or her reality by ones individual will without reference to the truth of things. An individual who would believe that he could, by the force of his will, defy gravity is setting himself up for a disastrous fall. To impose same-sex marriage would open up a Pandoras box of unintended consequences that bode ill for the advancement of the common good and human flourishing in all of society.Thomas G. Wenski, archbishopArchdiocese of MiamiThere are few people a community can embrace like family. Kay Gradick was one of those people. Mrs. Gradick, who died Saturday at age 96, touched innumerable lives throughout a decadeslong career in education, first as a physical education teacher and then as a 20-year principal of Marathon High School. The school gym, where the volleyball and basketball teams play, has long been named for her. Her first love was athletics, and she never slowed down even as she aged. She nearly made the U.S. Olympic team for the 1948 Olympics in London, and then later she became wildly successful in senior athletic competitions, always either winning medals or finishing near the top in trackand-field events. Throughout, she remained a strong booster of Marathon High athletics, serving as a board member of the Marathon Alumni Athletic Association. She also was a Rotarian and helped out individuals and at events too many to mention. Katherine Kay Gradick was a true role model for youths and adults alike. Many are called role models, but she was the real deal. A private celebration of her life takes place this week, and a citywide celebration is being planned by one of her closest friends and her care-giver, City Manager Mike Puto. No doubt, all of the city, and many from outside it, will be there. When we get the details, well pass them along.

The Aug. 14 event at mile marker 92 marked a new chapter for the organization, and honored Scholz as she stepped down from her fouryear tenure leading the center. Board President John Stuart praised Scholz as another angel whose perseverance and flat-out stubbornness ensured the survival of the center founded by the late Laura Quinn. News stories were often about how the center was at risk of closing its doors, Stuart said. Now the stories are about us fulfilling our mission to support the wild birds of the Florida Keys. Scholz was credited with spearheading the acquisition of the new bird hospital, upgrading its facilities at a nearby four-acre sanctuary, and improving the organizations financial stability. The new rehabilitation facility was purchased in part with a $265,000 grant from the Monroe County Tourist Development Council. Monroe County Mayor Sylvia Murphy helped Scholz cut the ribbon for the center that features an operating room and educational center. Weve turned the corner, Scholz said in thanking supporters and an awesome staff.TAVERNIERWoman charged in theftA Miami Gardens woman was charged Friday with taking part in an Aug. 12 robbery at an Islamorada jewelry store. Laritza M. Jimenez Vasquez, 19, was taken into custody on a felony count of robbery in the theft of a $13,000 Rolex watch from Blue Marlin Jewelry. Monroe County Sheriffs Office Detective Yunier Galvez concluded that Jimenez Vasquez made several false statements in her changing accounts of the crime. Ronald H. Cordero, 22, of Hialeah was arrested Aug. 12 after deputies stopped a car that sped away from the store at mile marker 82. The watch was recovered from inside the car. Jimenez Vasquez and two other passengers were released after giving statements. Cordero remains jailed under an $80,000 bond, accused of grabbing the mens watch from the hand of a female store clerk who was showing it to Jimenez Vasquez. Jimenez Vasquez reportedly first told deputies their car did not stop at the store on a return trip from Key West. After further questioning, she admitted going inside the store with Cordero but said she was looking around and was surprised when Cordero grabbed the watch. Cordero threw the watch from a car window, she told deputies. The store clerk said it was a talkative Jimenez Vasquez who asked to see the pricey watch as a potential gift. The clerk told Galvez that she suspected Jimenez was distracting her so [Cordero] could steal the watch. The detective said the watch was recovered from a seat pocket of the car, which was directly in front of where Jimenez was sitting, making it impossible for her not to know the watch was there. Jimenez Vasquez was released Saturday after posting $25,000 bond.Cops: Suspect lied under questioningCRIME FRONTKeynoter Staff JIMENEZ By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comKeynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWFlorida Keys Wild Bird Center staff (from left) Iverson Ricardo, Amanda Margraves, Kayla Gainer and Joan Scholz show new signage for avian emergencies at the groups new rehabilitation center in Tavernier.

Stop, breatheRecently, I read a wonderful escapist book, full of action and adventure set in the Montana wilderness. The main character taught at-risk kids how to survive in the wilds, which gave them not just skills but the self-confidence to pursue what they had previously thought was unattainable. He tells his young charges that they can moan and groan about fatigue and blisters and bugs, but before they quit, they need to STOP: Sit. Think. Observe. Plan. The cool thing is, this works with life and its challenges, too. Maybe traffic has come to a dead standstill on your morning commute. Or your computer refuses to cough up that big presentation youve been working on. Or a loved one has just announced its time to end the relationship. Stop before you give up. Sit. Chill out for a bit. Separate yourself from whatever it is. Focus on your breath for a minute (or two or five). Inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth. Feel how your chest moves as you breathe. Notice that your heart rate starts to diminish. When you calm down a bit, move on to the next step. Think. OK, youre in a bad spot. Now what? The first thing you ask yourself is this, Is there anything I can do about it? Can I change it or, even better, make it work to my advantage? Observe. What is going on around you? What do you see (or hear or even smell) that can help you in your situation? Dont assume everything in your environment is hostile. Lets go back to that traffic situation. Vehicles are moving in the opposite direction, so whatevers going on is on your side of the road. You hear multiple sirens and smell smoke, so you know that some kind of emergency is taking place and you could be stuck for a while. Your presentation: What isnt working? Is it the computer itself? Is it operator error? Can you see the file and just not get it to open? Your dead (or dying) relationship: Whats the body language? What is your partner saying, not just in words but in the tone of voice as well? Has everything been packed up and moved out? Plan. Youve sat, thought and observed. Now its time to plan. Whats your next step? Youre sitting there on the road: Is there another route you could take? If not, can you rearrange the appointments youve got set up and probably will miss? Since youre not under way, can you make phone calls, check your emails, respond to texts? How about listen to audio books or music, or set up your schedule for the week? Getting your presentation out of the computer may be as simple as tightening loose connections, rebooting or unplugging the computer from the wall, or searching by date for that misnamed file. The great long-term lesson here, learned the hard way, is to back up your files. When all else fails, call tech support. Can your relationship be salvaged with better communication? Do you need to go to couples counseling? Do you need to alter your behavior in some fashion and, perhaps most importantly, do you want to? Youve got a plan, but its worthless without implementation. Take the alternate route. Call your favorite computer geek. Set up a counseling session (or move on). Ultimately, you may quit, but you will have done so knowing youve done everything you could to succeed. Be a survivor. Dont let a situation force you to quit before youve had a chance to STOP.Jackie Harder, president of Key Dynamics Coaching and Consulting, specializes in helping women in business succeed in life and in the workplace.

The art of traveling comes down to precise and organized packing. Here are some tips on mastering jetsetting while not forgetting style in the rush to catch a plane.Pack in advanceA key component to packing is to do so in advance. I recommend starting the packing process one week prior to your trip. This will give you time to make sure your items are clean before you leave. There is nothing worse than packing the night before an early-morning flight only to realizeThese tips will make traveling a bit easierCONCH STYLELeah Maki ConchStyleSee Style, 2B NEW LOCATION First look at Conchs is FridayThe Key West High School football team, relying on strength, speed and confidence, will play La Salle in a preseason game Friday night. Kickoff is set for 6:30 at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium on Kennedy Drive. The Conchs have a roster of 53 players, including 12 freshmen, giving them more depth than in recent seasons when many players had to line up on offense and defense. Many of the freshmen are ready to contribute right now, said coach Johnny Hughes. But it will be the veterans who will show the way, and there are many of them. Senior quarterback Andrew Freeman will lead an offense that has three breakaway runners Mehki Sargent, Dorian Cannon and Jeffery Anilus. Senior linebacker Anthony Henriquez, a three-year starter, will anchor the defense. Hes our inspirational leader, Hughes said. Henriquezs instincts and intelligence he has a 4.3 grade-point average enable him, said Hughes, to diagnose a play in an instant. One of the most impressive players during August practices has been defensive lineman Terrence Smith, a 6-foot-2, 230-pound junior transfer from Mississippi. Hes explosive off the edge and tough to block, Hughes said. After a 1-9 season in 2013 that included lopsided losses to powerhouse teams, Key West decided to leave the Florida High School Athletic Association in football and join the new independent Gold Coast Conference, which has some good but not elite teams. After the regular season, the new league will have a playoff series in November involving its top four teams. The Conchs believe they have a good chance of being in postseason competition for the first time in 10 years. Were excited for a lot of reasons, Hughes said. Theres competition at every position. And were stronger and faster than we were last season. The Conchs will open the regular season at 7 p.m. Aug. 29 against visiting Keys Gate. All home games this season will begin at 7, a half-hour earlier than in the past.La Salle visits for preseason grid contestBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST FOOTBALL Photo by BERT BUDDEKey West Highs Anthony Henriquez (right) blocks a teammate as the Conchs go through a kickoff-return drill at practice.Try inshore for snapper, yellowtailThe kids have gone back to school and a hush has come over the islands. While there certainly are still tourists in town, theres a distinct reduction of pressure on our fisheries, which is great news for anyone fishing this week. With daily temps hovering around 90, heres the strategy I suggest to get the most out of your time on the water: Start your day on the Atlantic side. The reef and wrecks continue to offer the most consistent fishing right now. Set out in the morning while both you and the fish still have some get up and go. The most productive depths are 35 to 50 feet, where you will find an abundance of large mangrove snapper, with decent numbers of yellowtails mixed in. Both of these great-tasting snappers are taking small live baits, such as pinfish or ballyhoo, or even chunks of ballyhoo, fished in your chum slick or deep on a jighead. The wrecks and rough bottom areas in 120 to 250 feet are still producing decent mutton snapper action along with good numbers of amberjack and jack crevalle. The offshore bite for dolphin is sporadic. Youll see one captain come in with some schoolies and, possibly, a slammer, while his dock neighbor has nothing. The tuna bite is a bit more reliable, but dont expect anything sizeable. When youve had it with the heat and the fishing slows down, take a hydration break on land and then head back out to Florida Bay to do some lobstering. The lobster are on the move right now, and theres good hunting for them in six to 10 feet of water. Again, with reduced recreational competition, you have a good chance of getting your limit. But, remember, the bag limit in Monroe County is six lobsters per person per day. And be sure to measure accurately and in the water.The weeks bestCapt. Ariel Medero, of Big Game Sportfishing at the Hammocks in Marathon, reports the dolphin fishing has been on and off, whereas deep-dropping for tilefish is active along with tuna at the humps. Inshore, the reef is on fire with big mangroves and the wrecks with jacks and a few muttons. In the bay, mangroves are biting if you can find areas devoid of lobster divers. Both of the SeaSquared boats spent the week on the reef, and our customers were rewarded with limit catches of big mangroves, with yellowtails and muttons mixed in. On his outing with the Atchison family from Colorado, Capt. Wayne Burri happened upon a 35-pound African pompano, which was the highlight of their vacation for 12-year-old twins Chris and Sam. Mate Jason and I also took quite a few groups snorkeling for lobsters. And the Romanowski family took advantage of our Scales and Tails Charter with a half day on the reef followed by a half day of lobstering. They got their limit of snappers along with 14 lobsters to take back home to Tampa. Capt.

MM 50.5 (next to Herbies)743-2020 your favorite dress is at the cleaners.Make a listStart by making a list by the number of days youll be traveling. Youll likely want a different outfit for each day and night of your trip. If traveling for fun, youll need casual outfits with comfortable shoes for day while sightseeing and dressier outfits at night for dinners and entertainment. While writing down each outfit on your list, its important to try everything on. This will make you think about the type of undergarments and accessories that need to be packed in addition to making sure that the garment doesnt need any fixings. Also, check the weather; its no fun to arrive at your destination only to realize that its much colder than you realized and you didnt bring a jacket.What to wearWear comfortable clothing on the flight. You never know when youll be delayed or miss a flight and end up spending extra hours in the airport. However, this does not mean you should wear sweat pants. Instead, opt for layers such as a maxi skirt with tank and sweater. I also recommend a scarf (to keep warm in cold airports and airplanes), minimal jewelry (more to take off when you go through security) and comfortable shoes (youll be doing a lot of walking). I once made the mistake of wearing a dress with a lot of embellishments on it while traveling. As I went through security, the scanner lit up like a Christmas tree and I had to be patted down and searched in the back. This was an uncomfortable situation that could have been easily avoided by simply wearing the right clothing. Also, no one looks good after a long flight wearing a full face of makeup. Instead, slip on a stylish pair of sunglasses and a little lipstick and youll look fabulous. They also can help hide tired, blood-shot eyes after a red-eye flight.How to packRoll it, dont fold it. Rolling clothing will create fewer wrinkles and more space for other items. In addition, stuff workout clothing and socks into shoes to help them keep their shape while saving space. As youre laying items into your luggage, place a dryer sheet between clothing. This will make everything smell fresh when you unpack. Also, never check anything valuable. Your carry-on luggage should include your jewelry, cosmetics, swimsuit, one casual and one formal outfit, and anything that you couldnt live without. In addition, your carry-on luggage should include socks (flights are cold), lip balm, antibacterial wipes, tissues, Advil, toothbrush/toothpaste and a tide pen (for erasing spills and dirt from clothing when traveling).All leakable products should be packed in resealable plastic bags to minimize spillage on clothing and other items in your suitcase. Clearly mark your bag using a bright tag or a ribbon. Black luggage all looks the same at baggage claim.More is not betterJust because you own it doesnt mean you should pack it. As a rule of thumb, if you cannot carry your own luggage, then youve packed too much. Its not your significant others job to be the bag man and you should not need to see a chiropractor or masseuse after traveling. Pack clothing and accessories that you will wear more than once. A dress can be worn at night with heels and then worn again later in the trip with sandals for a more casual day look. On my last trip, my husband commented on the number of shoes I pulled out of my luggage, asking whether I really needed seven pairs of heels for a 10-day trip. I explained that I did because they each matched a different handbag that went with a specific outfit. Alright, point taken, perhaps packing seven pairs of shoes with matching handbags was a bit much but I would rather have fewer outfits and more accessories. A simple black dress can look like a completely different outfit when accessorized with different shoes, jewelry, scarves or a jacket. Also, keep in mind that hotels offer dry cleaning and laundry service for a relatively inexpensive fee. When considering that most airlines charge between $25 and $50 for a checked bag, using the hotels laundry service isnt a bad option. Hotels also have laundry machines you can use for nominal cost. On your next trip, use a few of these tips to help you stay stylish while traveling. And if you forget something, its the perfect opportunity to do a little shopping. Bon voyage!

As part of its new field-trip curriculum, plans are to use the Cracker House, on one of the trails, as an education center for new childrens activities. The Cracker House will also serve as a retreat for people walking the trails who want to take a rest or stay dry during surprise rainstorms. The Cracker House is a replica of the style of homes built by Floridas early pioneers with the idea that the family would live close to nature out of necessity. The house is constructed with a wide shade porch to protect from sun and rain and, at that time in history, also provided additional sleeping space. Story times and other activities will be conducted at the Cracker House. Crane Point wants to add rocking chairs, adult and child-size, to the porch to enhance the feeling of going back in time. Call 743-3900 to make a donation. A donor name plaque will be added to the chair.

Good Luck!! Study: Dogs may have jealous streakWhen Shetland sheepdog Maggie comes home from the groomer, her owners praise and pet her shiny coat, much to the chagrin of pit bull Stormy, who will headbutt her until their family cuts out the compliments. Stormys jealous, said owner Amy Putnam, who lives 45 miles east of Los Angeles. You know how youre supposed to treat your kids the same? Well, that goes for dogs, too. They get along great and go with the flow until one thinks she is being slighted. After hearing stories like Putnams, a psychology professor decided to study for the first time whether the human emotion of jealousy really happens in dogs. The nine-month study published in July in the science journal PLOS ONE hints that it could be possible, but other experts arent so sure behavior like Stormys can be called jealousy. While I will not say that dogs do not experience jealousy, this article does not prove that they actually do, said Dr. Bonnie Beaver, executive director of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists and a professor at Texas A&M Universitys College of Veterinary Medicine. Beaver also insists dogs lack shame. Despite what people think, the guilty look head cowered, ears back, eyes droopy is a reaction to people throwing tantrums over chewed-up shoes and accidents on the carpet, she said. But Christine Harris, a professor of psychology at the University of California, San Diego, says her dog study supports the theory that theres a more basic form of jealousy. She and a former student worked with 36 dogs, videotaping owners ignoring their pets while petting and talking sweetly to stuffed, animated dogs or jack-o-lantern pails. A pair of independent workers watched the videos for behavior like aggression or attention-seeking. When people interacted with the stuffed animals, their dogs pushed or touched them 78 percent of the time; tried to get between the owner and toy 30 percent of the time; and snapped at the fake dog 25 percent of the time, Harris said. There was much less of that behavior when it came to the toy pails. Forty-two percent of the dogs tried to push or touch them; 15 percent tried to get between them; and 1 percent snapped. Harris believes the dogs saw the stuffed animals as rivals. When they see a loved one show affection toward another what appears to be a real being, they engage in real behaviors to try and draw the affection back to them, Harris said. Thats what you see in humans, too. Beaver said the study opens up thoughts about what an animal might be experiencing. But shes concerned about calling it jealousy. A dog might be more interested because another social being is interacting with the owner, Beaver said. Harris said she is not claiming a dogs internal experience mirrors that of humans, because its impossible to know. Some say thats not jealous behavior, that dogs dont have emotions like this, she said. Others have said I am being too cautious, and if they have emotions like us, they will have behavior like us. Whether dogs get jealous or not, theres certainly much competition for affection in the Putnam house with the arrival of a grandson. Stormy the pit bull wants to be the only dog-sitter for the 6week-old boy. If Maggie gives him any attention, Stormy gets mad and ushers her out, Amy Putnam said, adding she didnt previously think about how the dogs got along. But when you talk about it like this, you realize there is a whole lot of jealously going on, she said.But professor says the results not definitiveBy SUE MANNINGAssociated PressOUR PETS Real Estate Middle & Lower KeysLindsay Rabito-Leonard Phone: 305-481-4571 lndzylass@yahoo.com IF YOU WANT IT ALL,THEN YOU WANT THIS HOME!
