MONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS


Griffiths backtracks


on panel's

School Board
to revisit them
this Tuesday
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Still grappling with how to
undo an apparent violation of
the Sunshine Law that occurred
during discussions with repre-
sentatives of the Keys teachers
union, Monroe County School
District administrators on
Wednesday cancelled a
planned bargaining session.
And related, a week after

training, School Board Vice
Chairman Andy Griffiths has
reconsidered, publicly apolo-
gizing to the volunteer com-
mittee members.
"We went after the wrong
messenger," Griffiths told the
Keynoter. "I apologize for
that."
The issue revolves around
board Chairman John Dick
facilitating a meeting between
Internal Auditor Ken Gentile;
Stuart Kessler, chairman of
the Audit and Finance
Committee; and State
Attorney Dennis Ward and

A statewide series of 26
public meetings on
Florida's political redistrict-
ing process that opened
Monday winds its way
toward an Aug. 18 session
in the Florida Keys.
How much the hearings
- or the redistricting
process itself - will affect
Monroe County remains an
open question.
"The biggest issue for us
here in Monroe County is
what part of Miami-Dade
County gets attached to us,"
said state Rep. Ron
Saunders (D-Key West),
who represents Florida
House District 120.


Democrats: GOP is stalling
on the maps for minimal input


As a one of five Florida
counties covered by a
Section 5 order under the
Civil Rights Act that relates
to discrimination, Monroe
County almost certainly
cannot be split into a sepa-
rate House district,
Saunders said. "Then there
would definitely be a legal
challenge," he said.
Florida's population
grew to nearly 19 million
people over the last decade,
so each Florida House dis-
tricts will generally add
about 20,000 people to
around 156,000 per district.
Monroe County's current
population - one of only


two counties in Florida to
lose residents since 2000 -
would account for only
about half that total.
"I think we'll still have a
majority" in District 120,
Saunders said, "but it won't
be as much of a majority."
Two Florida constitu-
tional amendments
approved by more than 60
percent of state voters in
November aim to eliminate
the instances of districts
being gerrymandered, or
drawn to favor a particular
party.
The Florida House has
formally joined a federal
lawsuit challenging


Amendment 6, saying it
would strip the Legislature
of its constitutional duty to
set districts.
"I think it's a fringe argu-
ment," said Dan Gelber, a
Democratic former state
legislator now working as
an attorney for the Fair
Districts Now organization.
"It's basically saying an
amendment passed by the
citizens can't tell the
Legislature what to do."
Gelber said the lawsuit
and the three-month series
of public meetings may be
an attempt to delay redis-
tricting so the final maps
cannot be examined by the
public in a "thoughtful"
process before the districts

CRIME FRONT


LaTorre transferred to prison


Former Keys
official starts
his sentence
Keynoter Staff

Louis LaTorre, once
Monroe County's director of
social services and now a
convicted felon, was moved
Wednesday from the county
jail on Stock Island to the


state prison
system.
LaTorre,
convicted
on April 29,
2008, of
driving
under the
influence-
serious
bodily injury, is doing 3.5
years. A jury concluded he
caused an April 15, 2006,
head-on crash in which


Nadezda "Nadia" Bowman
was seriously injured. She
remains wheelchair-bound
and continues suffering the
effects of brain damage,
including memory loss, that
left her in a coma for weeks
after the collision.
By appealing his convic-
tion, LaTorre had avoided
prison since Circuit Court
Judge Luis Garcia sentenced
him in June 2008. But this
past June 14, Garcia ordered


LaTorre to start his sentence,
saying his appeals can con-
tinue while he's behind bars.
He's now at the South
Florida Reception Center in
Doral, where prison officials
will evaluate him to deter-
mine where he should serve
his time. When booked, he
appeared to have a look of
disbelief on his face.
In the 2006 crash,

NEWS BRIEFS

Dengue researchers
come to Key West

The Monroe County
Health Department is work-
ing with researchers who
hope to survey more than 600
Key West residents on their
knowledge of dengue fever, a
mosquito-bore disease, and
the Keys Action to Break the
Cycle of Dengue project.
The researchers, from the
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention, Case

they're taking to fight mos-
quitoes, such as eliminating
standing water in and around
properties where mosquitoes
like to breed.

MOSQUITO CONTROL BOARD


Lord-Papy to admit guilt


She'll be fined

for violating

Sunshine Law

By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Florida Keys Mosquito
Control Board Commissioner
Joan Lord-Papy will likely
now think twice about whom
she e-mails in the future.
Assistant State Attorney
Mark Wilson told the
Keynoter the longtime com-
missioner is expected to
plead guilty Monday to a
non-criminal violation of
Florida's Sunshine Law
overseeing open government
and be fined $250 and pay
another $270 in court costs.
The case is scheduled for 9
a.m. in County Judge Wayne
Miller's court at the Freeman
Justice Center in Key West.
The charge stems from an
April 26 e-mail that interim
district Director Andrea Leal
sent commissioners about


dates to interview director
candidates (Michael Doyle
from Colorado ultimately
was hired and will start work
next month).
Commissioner Jack
Bridges replied to Leal -
copying all commissioners
- and said he preferred a
May date. He also told fellow
board members to "not reply
to this e-mail" to avoid
Sunshine Law complications.
Lord-Papy responded,
anyway, accusing Bridges
of having an ulterior motive
for wanting to conduct the
interviews when she would
be out of the country on
extended vacation.
I also want to be on the
record as opposing this cav-
alier and shoddy approach
to hiring an individual for
such an important post,"
she wrote.
Wilson said Lord-Papy
and her attorney, David
Paul Horan, visited with
him on June 14 after her
return to the states.
Horan "said that he had


seen the e-mail and agreed it
constituted a Sunshine Law
violation. They weren't dis-
puting that, but they wanted
to know how it could be
resolved," he said.
Sunshine Law violations
fall into two categories: A
non-criminal infraction or a
second-degree misdemeanor
for "knowingly" violating the
law. Wilson said that term's
broad definition makes the
law hard to interpret.
"The only way that
makes any sense is to look at
the purpose of the statute,
which is to prevent back-
room deals being struck," he
said. "She just fired off this
e-mail to [Bridges] because
she was upset with him.
This wasn't any effort to
strike a deal with [Bridges];
she was just giving him a
piece of her mind."
Wilson added that while
Bridges' original reply was
"inadvisable for obvious rea-
sons," it was not a Sunshine
Law violation in itself.


MOSQUITO CONTROL DISTRICT


Budget to remain flat


With property

values down,
it means cuts

By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Florida Keys
Mosquito Control District
rolled out a tentative budget
Monday that would raise the
same amount of tax dollars
as the current fiscal year.
But the $9 million haul
has fallen well short of
expenditures in recent years,
meaning the district is rapidly
eating away at valuable
reserves. District Comptroller
William Southcott has said
it's "unsustainable."
According to Southcott,
the district raised $9.7 mil-
lion in taxes and had $8.1
million in cash reserves at
the end of fiscal year 2008-
09. It raised $9.2 million and
had $7.25 million in reserves
at the end of fiscal year
2009-10, and will have


raised $9 million with an
estimated $5.5 million in
reserves at the end of the cur-
rent fiscal year, on Sept. 30.
That means the district
has used up roughly $2.6
million in reserves over two
years to cover expenses.
The board apparently
intends to make drastic
expenditure reductions as
budget season rolls on,
since it directed Southcott
to construct a budget main-
taining the same .4596 tax
rate. At that rate, the owner
of a $300,000 home paid
$137.88 for mosquito con-
trol this fiscal year.
"As a result of the direc-
tion of the board, we will
prepare items for possible
reduction to keep it at the
current [tax] rate. We are
currently working on that.
With the property apprais-
er's estimations, it would
cost us about $500,000" in
revenue, Southcott said.
Southcott said district
staff will discuss "areas that
can be tlninid'i at an


upcoming supervisors
meeting.
The tentative total budg-
et is $15.21 million, with $9
million coming from taxes
and $5.5 million in
reserves. Grants, rentals,
interest earnings, among
other things, makes up the
balance.
On the expense side,
personal services and per-
sonal service benefits are
the district's most costly
items. Preliminary figures
show the district doling out
$4.93 million in salaries to
roughly 90 employees and
$2.67 million in benefits.
The next most-costly
item is chemicals, solvents
and additives. That is listed
at $1.58 million.
Among other expendi-
tures: $916,510 for repairs
and maintenance, $807,130
for operating expenses,
$566,000 for insurance,
$445,000 for gasoline,
$158,000 for office supplies
and materials and $149,450
for capital outlay.

Prison starts


From LaTorre,1A

LaTorre was driving south in
the northbound lane of U.S.
1 at mile marker 8 at 2:45
a.m. His pickup struck
Bowman's northbound sport
utility vehicle head-on, caus-
ing it to roll over. Florida
Highway Patrol Cpl. Gary
Dunick testified at trial that
he feared Bowman was dead
when he reached the scene.


Two separate tests
showed LaTorre's blood
alcohol level to be .101 and
.102. Driving with blood-
alcohol levels of .08 or high-
er is illegal in Florida.
Cocaine also was found in
his system. LaTorre's appeal
argued the blood tests were
not accurate.
LaTorre left the county's
employ shortly after his
arrest.


Bids accepted


From Pier House, 1A

returned $7 million, $4.7
million and $3.55 million.
Based on figures main-
tained by the Monroe
County Property Appraiser's
Office, the land is valued at
$2.88 million and the build-
ing is worth $3.17 million,
totaling $6.05 million.
Assistant City Manager
Mark Finigan said commis-
sioners can accept the best
bid or "reject all bids
because they don't feel like
any of them are of financial
benefit to the city. They
could speculate that growth
in the market could be 3 per-
cent per year or something
and we'll make more money
by waiting."
Finigan also noted that
the Pier House, when work-
ing with the appraisal firms,


did not provide figures relat-
ed to the long-term occupan-
cy of the rooms in the build-
ing or the level of use for the
spa and conference space.
"They wouldn't share
with the city all of their
information," Finigan said,
adding that there is surely an
IIIII IIII. value" to the resort
owners.
"If they were to replicate
those amenities that are in
that building, they couldn't
do it because they don't have
any additional footprint. And
if they did, it would be at the
expense of the other units.
It's of greater value to them
than it is to anybody."
In the 2010 referendum to
allow consideration of the
sale, the vote was 55.97 per-
cent (1,602) in favor and
44.03 percent (1,260)
against.


No maps yet


From Redistricting, 1A

are locked in for the next
decade.
"It's a charade," Gelber
said. "They are staging
these incessant hearings
without anybody seeing a
map. I believe they are try-
ing to wait another eight or
nine months before they
show the public the maps."
Legislators attending the
public meetings "have been
told not to talk about the
maps," Saunders said. "That
has created some controver-
sy."
Leadership in the state
House and Senate, both con-
trolled by Republicans, said
they want the public to have
its say on redistricting
before making any deci-
sions.
S\\ i.i they are doing is
trying to prevent legislators
from betraying their intent,"
Gelber said. "It's almost like
an attorney not allowing a
defendant so he won't say
something pretty bad."
"We're watching the
process," Saunders said, but
noted that Monroe County
probably will not be affect-
ed as much as some other
areas by redistricting.


"In Miami, moving a dis-
trict a couple streets can turn
it from a predominantly
black district into a Hispanic
district," he said.
"Monroe is pretty much a
diverse, 50-50 county"
between Democrats and
Republicans, he said.
"There are no real pockets
of voters to split up, so
nobody wants us."
Redistricting of Florida
Senate District 40 - now
expected to take in 470,000
people - could be changed.
The district represented by
Larcenia Bullard of Miami
takes in parts of five coun-
ties, including Monroe.
A separate federal law-
suit filed in February against
Gov. Rick Scott on behalf of
five Monroe County resi-
dents has been dismissed.
That lawsuit contended
the newly elected governor
was attempting to slow the
redistricting process by not

WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT


LOWER KEYS


Operations shrinking


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com
In the face of looming
budget cuts at the South
Florida Water Management
District, the agency's Florida
Keys Service Center locks its
doors for good Thursday.
Tom Genovese, the dis-
trict's Keys representative
since 2008, confirmed the
closing of office at mile
marker 102 in Key Largo. "I
will be leaving the Water
Management District but
remaining in the Keys,"
Genovese said.
He referred other ques-
tions about the office closing
to officials at the district's
West Palm Beach headquar-
ters.
District media relations
staff, attending a drought-
awareness event on the
shores of Lake Okeechobee,
could not be reached by press
time Friday.
Genovese attended
Monroe County and munici-


pal meetings this week to
outline the agency's 2012
update of the Lower East
Coast Water Supply Plan.
"The Florida Keys
Service Center facilitates
partnerships with local gov-
ernments and community
groups, provides direct and
responsive access to South
Florida Water Management
District functions and creates
a better understanding of
local water resource issues,"
says a district description of
the soon-to-close Key Largo
office.
Some water-permitting
issues were handled by the
local office.
A law passed by the
Florida Legislature this year
mandates reductions in prop-
erty taxes paid to support the
four of the state's five water
management districts.
In the 16 counties com-
prising the South Florida
Water Management District
- from Orlando to Key West
along Atlantic Coast - prop-
erty owners will see a 30 per-


cent reduction.
In Monroe County, a
property with a taxable
assessed value of $200,000
paid about $50 to the South
Florida Water Management
District this year. That will be
pared to about $35 by the
mandated reduction.
The South Florida Water
Management District has a
$1.1 billion budget and a cur-
rent staff of about 1,900.
With about $130 million
to be pared by the new tax-
rate reductions, district staff
is still working on a new
budget to be presented to the
agency's governing board in
July. Staff layoffs and buy-
outs are expected.
The district is charged
with maintaining water sup-
plies to Florida residents in
its area, and flood-control
operations. It also is the
state's lead agency in
Everglades restoration
efforts, teaming with the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers.
Officials of conservation
groups including the


Everglades Foundation and
Audubon of Florida have
expressed concern that budg-
et reductions could hamper
Everglades projects and
water-conservation efforts.
A June 16 memo to the
state water management dis-
tricts from a Department of
Environmental Protection
official advised district budg-
et writers to consider salary
reductions and cutting unnec-
essary programs.
"Over the years, salaries
and benefit structures at
many of the districts have
become significantly out of
line with the rest of our
state's employees," wrote
DEP Special Counsel Jon
Steverson. "Many of the dis-
tricts have also become top-
heavy in their organization
structures."
Steverson urged districts
to "eliminate non-core activi-
ties" that may include educa-
tional outreach programs that
"tend to be duplicative with
local government and utility
efforts."


A 56-year-old woman from
Pompano Beach in Broward
County died Thursday morn-
ing after the 2011 Toyota she
was driving south on U.S. 1
crashed with a dump truck
also heading south.
State troopers withheld
the woman's name pending
notification of next of kin.
But they say the woman
was traveling south about
11:30 a.m. at mile marker 99 in
the outside lane of U.S. 1, and
the truck, a 1992 Kenwood
driven by Silvio Benavides,
50, of Key Largo was also
southbound but in the inside
lane. It was around 11:35 a.m.
The Toyota driver tried to
turn left from the outside lane
with the truck approaching
on the inside. As a result, the
truck struck the left front of
the Toyota, which ended up
on the southbound shoulder.
It was the eighth traffic
fatality of the year south of
Florida City.

Another Silver Alert


found in th

Driver's fifth
located here
the past year
Keynoter Staff

Yet again, a disoriented
elderly motorist from the
mainland has been found in
the Florida Keys following
a statewide Silver Alert.
The alert, which flashed
on traffic messaging boards
throughout Florida, was
issued when William Truax,
77, of Edgewater was
reported missing.
Tuesday at 5:30 p.m., the
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office received a report
about a reckless driver in a
2009 silver Mercury Milan.
Deputy Lisette Zuelch
pulled the driver over at
mile marker 12 and behind
the wheel was Truax - 400
miles from his home, which
is near Daytona Beach.
When Zuelch and Sgt.
Ronnie Roberts spoke with
him, "he was disoriented
and agitated, unaware of his
location and he told them he
was on the way to a doctor's
appointment near his
home," agency spokes-
woman Becky Herrin said.
His family was notified
so they could come down
and pick him up.

Lionfish taking

a greater hold

Invasive species, with no predators,
now found as north as Loxahatchee

Did you hear about the latest reach of the invasive
lionfish?
Researchers at Florida International University this
week confirmed the Pacific Ocean exotic has now
invaded the Loxahatchee River in Martin County.
The poisonous-spined tropical fish was found three
miles inland where fresh and saltwater mix - far
removed from the hard-bottom sand and coral ledges
these invasive fish prefer in Keys waters.
Sadly, this offers up further evidence of lionfish pro-
liferating and raises new alarms about efforts to control
the burgeoning population.
With no indigenous predator, lionfish have multi-
plied at an alarming rate. Their initial introduction in
South Florida is believed to have come from six fish
accidentally released when Hurricane Andrew dam-
aged a beachside aquarium near Biscayne Bay.
Their colorful banding and airy, feather-looking
spines (warning, those spines are poisonous) have
made this imported exotic a popular saltwater aquarium
star.
Scientists are now convinced that hobbyists releas-
ing lionfish into the wild have greatly expanded the ini-
tial breeding stock in our waters, even though that is
illegal. And the fish are spreading northward up the
Atlantic coast.
Researchers at the University of Florida calculate
that lionfish populations have increased tenfold from
2004 to 2008 in parts of the Atlantic and Caribbean.
Some have been recently reported as far north as Cape
Hatteras, N.C.
Ominously, these same researchers "now estimate
[that] lionfish are as abundant as some native grouper
species."
Why all the concern? Because these invaders gob-
ble up smaller reef species including key stocks of baby
grouper, cardinal fish, parrotfish, even juvenile lobster.
And unlike native reef species, these interlopers pro-
duce eggs year-round, rather than seasonally, which
means rapid proliferation of new invasive and hungry
lionfish that can overwhelm natives.
One study cited by the University of Florida report-
ed that within a short period after lionfish colonized a
new coastal area, survival of native reef fishes declined
by nearly 80 percent.
That has ominous consequences for Keys fisheries
along with inland fish stocks along the entire Atlantic
coast, especially after the confirmed discovery deep up-
river in the Loxahatchee.
Here in the Keys, divers and fishermen have struck
back, hosting lionfish derbies and cookouts. But the
proliferation of this aggressive invader continues.
Vigilance helps. Divers are encouraged to report
lionfish sightings by visiting www.reef.org/lionfish.
Fishermen who catch lionfish are encouraged to report
their catch to NOAA at (252) 728-8714 or sending an
e-mail to reportlionfish@noaa.gov.
And if you exercise care in handling and cleaning
lionfish, they are excellent tasting, mild and the perfect
size for fish sandwiches. Bon appetite. There are plen-
ty more - unfortunately - where those came from.

Clemons: Always there
Re: The death of part-time
Marathon resident Clarence Clemons,
sax player for Bruce Springsteen and
the E Street Band:
I'm proud we were the catalyst
inviting him well over a decade ago to
fish in the Redbone's Key West SLAM
tournament and the long-lasting rela-
tionships developed with the Redbone
celebrity family of events throughout
the Keys and across the nation since
then.
When we picked him up at the
arrival section of Key West
International Airport, he was just set-
tling his 6-foot, 5-inch, 250-pound
frame on a bench, with his suitcase at
his sandaled feet, his saxophone case
under one arm, lighting up a huge cigar.
And when he saw us, that instant
magnificent smile further lit up an
already beautiful Key West day and his
wonderful hug added warmth.
He loved the Keys. He told me later
that invitation to the Redbone events
gave him a chance to get to know the
Keys community better, and boy, did
the Big Man ever jump in with support
throughout the islands in a big way.
He became an instant and much-
loved member of the Redbone family,
taking an active interest in helping out
where and any way he could using his
celebrity in the Redbone's fight for cys-
tic fibrosis research - now at $15 mil-
lion raised over 23 years. He was
always there when Gary, Susan or
Nicole Ellis would ask him to attend at
a fundraiser; most times, he'd step up

and volunteer well before they asked.
He provided unbelievable entertain-
ment, jamming at Redbone events with
Big Richard and his Family Fun Band
at the Lorelei or with Capt. Jimmy
Lozar and the Marlin Too Review.
He stepped up and gave many sold-
out concerts with his own Palm Beach
band, the Temple of Soul, at the
Redbone's Keys tournaments. At the
drop of a hat, he'd travel to a number of
the other Redbone celebrity fishing
events in such places as New York City,
Montauk and Cleveland - and every-
where the anglers and other partici-
pants loved him.
What a performer, what a fisherman
and what a totally nice human being.
When his brother Bill moved here to


Phoenix, Clarence introduced our two
families. Bill is probably a more
accomplished musician than Clarence
if you can believe it, and like Clarence
is a great friend.
He loved the Keys, as you can tell
by that wonderful smile. Fishing in the
Keys was an instant gateway to his
deep temple of soul.
Three things I'll always remember
with Clarence: That truly magnificent
smile, his enveloping hugs and that
beautiful wailing saxophone. Thank
you, Clarence, for all you gave us with
your love. We will truly miss the Big
Man.

Heavily promoted


festival fizzles


It doesn't even
draw 200 people
to marina site
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

Late last week, word of a
giant three-day music festi-
val that was expected to
draw thousands of out-of-
town young revelers to the
former Rowell's Marina
property created buzz, con-
fusion and a little anger
throughout Key Largo.
Promoters had been plan-
ning last N cckciI s Summer
Splash for at least six
months, but few in the Keys
seemed to know about it.
Turns out, few from the
mainland did, too.
The Summer Splash tech-
no music festival had about


70 of the top deejays in the
business come to the Keys to
perform on two stages erect-
ed in the lot of the Key
Largo marina. The event had
coverage by MTV and the
Spanish-language cable tele-
vision network Univision.
The only thing it was miss-
ing was the large crowds.
Promoters had said they
expected anywhere from
1,000 to 3,000 people to
show up for the concert and
satellite parties at two Key
Largo hotels. Partiers were
supposed to be bused in
from all over South Florida
and Southwest Florida -
from West Palm Beach to
Naples.
But the number of people
who actually showed up was
closer to 150, one of the pro-
moters, Joe Zaragoza, said.
Tickets for the festival
were available online for


$75 per day. Packages that
included a hotel room for
four people for two nights
were offered for $180 and
$350.
Although it was heavily
promoted on a Miami radio
station and in the parking lot
of the Miami Heat basket-
ball games, the promoters
did no advertising in the
Keys and did not inform
local media organizations
about the event.
Zaragoza said in hind-
sight, that may have been a
mistake. But he said he and
his colleagues were not try-
ing to hide the fact that the
concert was coming.
Jackie Harder, president
of the Key Largo Chamber
of Commerce, said she
found out about the Summer
Splash only four days before
it was set to kick off. She
said some of her members

were concerned the event
could degenerate into a wild,
drunken party similar to
Urban Beach Week on South
Beach.
Some wondered if those
concerns had anything to do
with the lack of local adver-
tising and publicity.
Zaragoza denies that, and
said the type of music
played at the concert appeals
to an entirely different
crowd than music heard dur-


ing Urban Beach Week.
"I know the community
felt left out, and we didn't
want that to happen. Urban
Beach Week has nothing to
do with this," Zaragoza said.
Festival ads showed pho-
tos of crowds in pools, on
sandy beaches and other
locations that don't look like
the Key Largo site, which is
more of a vacant field with a
small marina basin on
Blackwater Sound.


In the end, the musicians
showed up but played to tiny
crowds.
The event cost the pro-
moters close to $250,000 to
put on, Zaragoza said. They
had to pay the musicians, the
vendors and the bus compa-
nies, but they also had to pay
the county for a public
assembly permit, as well as
pay for police and fire pro-
tection.

ELECTION 2011


Some toast

new booze law


Sunday morning
sales on way to
being reality
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Key West officials are
one step closer to allowing
sales of alcohol on Sunday
mornings.
Tuesday in a 4-0 vote,
the City Commission
passed the first reading of
an ordinance that removes
the prohibition on alcohol
sales until noon on Sundays.
If finalized, the new provi-
sion would allow such sales
seven days a week between
7 a.m. and 4 a.m.
That means residents and
visitors can order a bloody
Mary, mimosa or ice cold
beer with their Sunday
breakfast.
Mayor Craig Cates spon-
sored the law; Commissioner
C('l.,)i Lopez was absent
from the meeting and com-
missioners Jimmy Weekley
and Mark Rossi excused
themselves from the vote,
citing conflicts of interest.
For Weekley, that's
because his two Fausto's
Food Palace locations sells
beer and wine, and Rossi
because he owns the large
Duval Street bar complex
Rick's/Durty Harry's.
Commissioner Billy
Wardlow moved for
approval; that was seconded
by Commissioner Barry
Gibson, and Commissioner
Teri Johnston joined in
the vote.


Alyson Crean, spokes-
woman for the Key West
Police Department, said law
enforcement doesn't antici-
pate enforcement issues
stemming from a change in
the law.
The Police Department
"does not expect any kind of
negative impact from the
change in the law. As things
are, people can buy liquor six
days a week during those
hours now, and they can go
to Stock Island on Sunday."
Virginia Panico, executive
vice president of the Key
West ( Ii.,iiilc! of Commerce,
agreed that there would be a
minimal impact, aside from
added convenience.
Panico added that since
city residents now won't have
to drive to unincorporated
Stock Island if they want
alcohol Sunday mornings, it
will "keep the revenue here in
the city of Key West and sup-
port our businesses."
Donna Edwards, brand
manager for iconic Sloppy
Joe's, is waiting on the sec-
ond approval before making
any decisions about opening
earlier on Sundays.
I1c'..lInc it's not solidi-
fied yet and still needs to go
through the process, we're
going to wait and see and
then we'll make a decision."
Before it goes into effect,
the change to Sunday alco-
hol sales has to be approved
in a second public hearing,
likely at the next City
Commission meeting, set
for July 5 beginning at 6
p.m. in Old City Hall on
Greene Street.

Cinque, Keating run again


No one else
has announced
in Marathon
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon City Council
members Mike Cinque and
Richard Keating say they're
running for re-election in
November.
The two told the Keynoter
they plan to gather the neces-
sary 60 petitions to get on the
ballot and submit them to the
Monroe County Supervisor
of Elections Office before the
July 5 deadline.
Theirs are the only council
seats up this year, and no one
else has publicly stated inten-
tions to run. Terms are for


two years, and election is at
large. That means if anyone
else jumps in the race, the top
two vote-getters are elected.
Candidate qualifying runs
from noon on Aug. 2 until
noon Aug. 9. A $720 filing fee
is required without petitions.
Cinque, 56, will seek his
third consecutive term.
That's the maximum allowed
before sitting out at least one
election cycle. He said it may
be his last should he win.
"I got started with this in
1996 and been there since Day
1. I was actually 41 [years old]
when we started the effort to
incorporate. I'm proud of the
city," Cinque said.
Cinque said he's seeking
another term to see the city's
central sewer system through
and hopefully acquire Boot
Key and turn it into an eco-


park. He said he'd also like to
continue working on beauti-
fying the city, particularly the
U.S. 1 corridor.
"I think things are running
fairly smooth," he said. "The
council has done a good job
over the years and I'd like to
see that continue."
Keating, 52, is completing
his first term. He called his
first foray into politics an
0ij ll,..nll ll "
"It's humbling and I've
learned a lot and have a lot
more to learn. I hope I can
continue," he said.
Keating said he spent the
majority of his term learning
on the job and admittedly
brought few ideas forward.
"People will go to council
members who've been there
a while and it takes a while to
learn how things work.


Bringing things forward
without thinking it out can be
worse for what you're trying
to accomplish," he said.
Keating said he's now com-
fortable on the dais and looks
forward to the city completing
its sewers and a new fire sta-
tion being built on Grassy Key.
He'd also like to take measures
to help businesses in the strug-
gling economy.
"Give incentives for busi-
nesses to spend some money
improving their business or
spend capital for beautifica-
tion. We have a lot of unde-
veloped properties in town,"
Keating said.
Cinque led all candidates
with 862 votes in 2009, while
Keating came in at 788. They
were followed by Don Vasil,
John Bartus, "Bicycle" Joannie
Nelson and Kevin Kenney.


DEEPWATER HORIZON SPILL


Report: We got lucky with current


If spilled
happened today,
we'd have oil
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

If the Deepwater Horizon
oil spill had occurred this
year instead of last, an
oceanographer reported this
week, oil probably would be
in Florida Keys waters now.
"If the oil was spilling right
now, the Loop Current would
be doing just what experts
feared last year - polluting a
long stretch of Florida and the
East Coast," University of
South Florida oceanographer
Robert Weisberg said in an
opinion column for the St.
Petersburg Times.
The BP Deepwater Horizon
spill spewed nearly 5 million
barrels of oil - more than 200
million gallons - into the


northern Gulf of Mexico after
the oil rig exploded, burned
and sank on April 20, 2010.
Eleven men on it died.
Oil flowed from the sea
floor about a mile down for
nearly three months until the
spill was capped July 15.
Oceanographers and the
National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
forecast during the spill that
the Loop Current in the Gulf of
Mexico likely would bring the
oil to the Keys' sensitive man-
grove and coral-reef ecosys-
tems and possible head up the
Atlantic coast beyond Miami.
But an expected current
change contained the spill to
the northern gulf.
"Instead, an eddy broke off
from the Loop Current, break-
ing the connection with the
Florida Keys and keeping the
spill contained to the northern
gulf," Weisberg wrote. "In
short, much of Florida got
lucky. But this luck wouldn't
have held out this year."


The Loop Current moves
and fluctuates as it moves
water from the southern
hemisphere through the Gulf
of Mexico and back to the
Florida Straits.
"A Loop Current eddy
recently formed and broke off
in an almost identical manner
as occurred last year, but
instead of remaining separat-
ed, the eddy rapidly recon-
nected with the parent Loop
Current," Weisberg said. "So
we may speculate that had the
Deepwater Horizon blowout
occurred this year, there
would now be oil flowing
through the Florida Straits
and up the East Coast."
Oil from a spill in the
Deepwater Horizon area
could have reached the
Florida Straits and the Keys
in about a week's time.
The extent of lasting dam-
age from the spill to the Gulf
of Mexico ecosystem
remains unknown, said Larry
Kinney, a Gulf expert at


Texas A&M University.
"There remains significant
debate in the scientific com-
munity, not only about the
ecological effects of the spill
but even about the fate of the
oil, iiI! he said in a recent
report. "Some investigations
indicate that it is mostly gone
and others indicate a lot of oil
remains in the environment."
Kinney said there is a
good chance that food-fish
species may rebound this
summer, but long-term
impacts could take years to
reveal themselves.
This week, the Gulf Coast
Claims Facility reported that
payments to individuals and
businesses harmed economi-
cally by the Deepwater
Horizon spill now exceed
$4.5 billion nationally.
Payments on 8,547 claims
from Monroe County hit
$126,110,321 on Thursday,
the center reported. The num-
ber of unresolved claims was
not available.


City Council
to evaluate
city manager
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City
Council meets in regular ses-
sion Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at
the Marathon Government
Center. Agenda items include:
* An annual performance
evaluation for City Manager
Roger Hemstadt.
The longtime Miami-
Dade County and city of
Miami employee received
glowing reviews and a three-
year deal from the council
after a six-month review last
June. He was hired Jan. 26,
2010, to take over for former
Manager Clyde Burnett.
"It was a process they put


in place for themselves,"
Hemstadt said of the review.
Council members will
each fill out a form grading
Hemstadt on 12 different cri-
teria, including, initiative,
productivity, quality, effort
and dependability.
Hemstadt received a raise
from $110,000 per year to
$130,000 annually at last
year's evaluation. The coun-
cil said then he would receive
no pay increases over the life
of the rest of the deal.
* A council discussion on
the wording of a referendum
on commercial air service
backed by Councilman Pete
Worthington.
He's been pushing for the
nonbinding vote during either
November's council election
or the January presidential
primary, saying residents can
send a message to Monroe
County that the Middle Keys


need commercial service. The
county owns Florida Keys
Marathon Airport.
Worthington said he'd
like to see "simple wording"
on the referendum. Some
council members said it
wouldn't ask specific enough
questions, such as whether
residents would help subsi-
dize commercial air service.
According to city docu-
ments, the proposed wording
is: "Should the Monroe County
Commission actively pursue
commercial airline service at a
minimum of two inbound and
two outbound flights daily
between Marathon and either
Miami or Fort Lauderdale or
,!1. .1I,, !i..ii. j. ! Florida . ii " I I ' '
Marathon has failed to
support commercial service

Cuba: Seas to


Mermaid finally takes the splash rise dramatically


Miami Shores
woman's dream
is fulfilled

By MICHAEL WELBER
Keynoter contributor

It was one of those per-
fect late June days in the
Keys.
Deep blue skies and
downy clouds were reflected
in the emerald water.
Swarms of yellowtail snap-
per and sergeant majors
swam just below the surface
near Sombrero Reef off
Marathon. They were fol-
lowed by a fleet of snorkel-
ers roaming the surface,
spouting geysers of water.
The morning's heat was
softened by a slight breeze
from the east.
And then, suddenly, an
iridescent green tail broke
the surface, a tail much larg-
er than any fish. What was
it? A mirage?
It was a mermaid - no
mirage - a beautiful young
woman covered from waist
to toes with a large, green
shimmering tail and small
shells on top. What a lovely
sight on a beautiful day.
It turns out that the mer-
maid is Miami Shores resi-
dent Nancy Koelbel.
It had been her dream to
swim as a mermaid in the
warm waters of the Florida


Keys. Towards that end, she
located veteran Marathon
underwater photographer
Larry Benvenuti, who was
only too happy to shoot pho-
tos of her highly anticipated
swim. They exchanged e-
mails for more than a year
before they could work out a
mutually suitable time.
As luck would have it,
the day Koelbel, who turns
31 on July 10, arrived turned
out to be ideal.
Koelbel has had a dream
of being a mermaid since
she was 7 and saw Disney's
"The Little Mermaid" ani-
mated feature film. She car-
ried that dream with her for
years, eventually audition-
ing at Weeki Wachee
Springs State Park in Spring
Hill, which calls itself the
"home of the world famous
mermaids."
She never joined their
team - but she does don her
mermaid gear for parties -
so Koelbel had to forge her
own success. She works at a
dance school during the
week but had never forgot-
ten that dream.
Until the trip to the Keys,
Koelbel had never worn her
mermaid costume in saltwa-
ter. It presented a special
challenge because she was
more buoyant than in fresh
water. She has trained her-
self to stay under for more
than a minute and a half but
couldn't manage that time in

Nancy Koelbel fulfills her dream of swimming as a mermaid
in the clear blue waters of the Florida Keys.


the briny Florida Straits.
Nevertheless, the trip was
a triumph for both her and
Benvenuti. Afterward, sun-
ning on the aft platform of
Deep Blue Dive's Tortuga,


Koelbel glowed from the
experience.
"It's a dream come true,"
she said. "I never thought
we'd pull it off but we did."


GOODBYE, CHARLEY


A crowd of about 100
gathers at Anne's Beach in
Islamorada on June 18 to
celebrate the release of
Charley II,a loggerhead
sea turtle that spent four
months under rehabilitation
at TheTurtle Hospital in
Marathon. Charley II was
found floating, due to an
infection, off Windley Key on
Feb. 17. Next up for release,
date to be determined, is
Kruck,a green sea turtle
rescued by Boy Scouts from
Sea Base on a snorkeling trip.
Kruck has partial rear-flipper
paralysis from being hit by a
boat, but is a survivor and
will be released where he
was found, at Hens and
Chickens Reef off Islamorada.


Island nation
says protecting
vegetation key

Associated Press

Cuban scientists calcu-
late that median sea levels
around the Caribbean nation
- just 90 miles from the
Keys - will rise more than
30 inches by the end of the
century due to global cli-
mate change.
Models predict the sea
will rise 10.6 inches 2050
and 33.5 inches by 2100,
Abel Centella, scientific
director of the country's
Meteorological Institute,
was quoted by Communist
Party daily newspaper
Granma as saying.
There were no details of
what preparations the island is
undertaking, but Granma said
scientists are closely monitor-

scientist Marcelino Hemandez
warned of the need to protect




The Coast Guard
awards cruise line

Michael Ronan, Royal
Caribbean Cruise Lines
vice president of marine
operations, received the
U.S. Coast Guard's Public
Service Commendation
Tuesday for his role in res-
cuing Cuba refugees at
sea.
Coast Guard Sector
Key West Cmdr. Pat
DeQuattro commended the
captain of the Navigator of
the Seas, Patrik Dahlgren,
for .I.Iini in a true
humanitarian intervention
without regard to delay of
service to his passengers
or the possibility of dam-
age to his vessel."
The Navigator of the
Seas was transiting from
Cozumel, Mexico, to Port
Everglades in Fort
Lauderdale on May 1
when it encountered the
nine Cuban migrants on a
partially inflated raft
northwest of Havana.
Realizing the raft was tak-

gate the effects of sea
encroachment.
"Right now it is urgent to
preserve mangroves, coral
reefs, sea grass and sand
beaches," Hernandez was
quoted as saying. I..Ii of
these ecosystems is a natu-
ral barrier to defend the
coasts from the impact of
climate change. If they dete-
riorate, the consequences
will be worse."
In the Keys, Monroe
County Mayor Heather
Carruthers is looking to
enact a toll on the 18-Mile
Stretch to raise money for,
among other things, raising
roads due to the threat of
sea-level rise.
International scientific
studies have projected sea
levels will rise between 30
and 75 inches by the end of
the century, fed by melting
glaciers and ice caps.
The rises will not be uni-

rents, winds and other fac-
tors.



and his crew launched a
small boat and the crew
was able to safely remove
the migrants from the raft
and transfer them to the
cruise ship.
They provided comfort
and initial medical atten-
tion while waiting for a
Coast Guard cutter to
arrive.

Women's study
group forming

A 12-week women's
study program in the Upper
Keys, called "Boundaries,"
starts on July 17.
The group will meet in
the community room at the
Sea Gull condominium
complex in Tavernier and
focus on the following: Can
I set limits and still be a
loving person? How do I
answer someone who
wants my time, love, ener-
gy or money? Why do I feel
guilty when I consider set-
ting boundaries?

THE DINNER TABLE


Hot-stove league gets whole new meaning FAU expert speaks
of plants Tuesday


Baseball stars
share favorite

cooking recipes

By CLARK SPENCER
cspencer@MiamiHerald.com

Julie Loria already knew
Florida Marlins shortstop
Hanley Ramirez was some-
thing special on a baseball
diamond. She is the wife of
team owner Jeffrey Loria,
after all, and has marveled at
Ramirez's impressive array
of talents - a blend of speed
and power that few in the
national pastime can rival
(although he's has having a
tough season this year).
But it was when Ramirez
showed what he could do in
a kitchen that Loria was truly
awed. He cooked up a batch
of tostones, made from his
mother's recipe, and showed
her he is as skilled working a
paring knife as he is swing-
ing a bat (notwithstanding
this season's slow start).
"He cooked them himself
and they were just really
delicious," Loria said. "He
said he's made them all his
life."
In her new cookbook,
"Diamond Dishes: From the
Kitchens of Baseball's
Biggest Stars" (Lyons,
$24.95), Loria reveals the
culinary side of Ramirez,
Marlins pitching ace Josh
Johnson and 18 other Major
League all-stars - a who's
who collection of modern-
day greats that includes
Albert Pujols, Derek Jeter
and Alex Rodriguez.
The book offers not only
the players' family recipes
and favorite dishes, but also
a heavy mixture of anec-
dotes and behind-the-scenes
photographs of the athletes
in their homes and kitchens.
"These guys, they're such
gifted athletes," Loria said.
"To find out they're more
than just gifted athletes, I
think that is what's most sur-
prising."
The book shows that,
when it comes to cuisine,
baseball goes far beyond the


Plenty of baseball stars know how to cook. 'Diamond
Dishes'offers up some of their favorites.


conventional ballpark fare of
hot dogs and hamburgers,
pl,'.IIII popcorn and
Cracker Jack."
And it shows that, like
anyone else, baseball players
have individual tastes that
run the gamut, from the
Navajo tacos that Johnson
enjoyed growing up to the
Ukrainian vegetable soup
that is savored by Tampa
Bay Rays third baseman
Evan Longoria.
Loria said she combined
two loves - food and base-
ball - when she came up with
the idea for the book a few
years ago. Growing up in
Massachusetts, she was a fan
of the Boston Red Sox and
has fond memories of her
father taking her to games at
Fenway Park.
"Food was a part of my
life, as well," she said. "As I
got older, I cooked more and
more and thought it would
be a great idea to combine
my two passions. I always
wanted to write a book. I
thought the timing was right
and nobody had done it
before."
What surprised Loria was
that she had no problem con-


vincing ballplayers to open
up about food and cooking.
"They're so used to talk-
ing about baseball and
they're comfortable talking
about it," she said. "But
when I said, 'Let's talk about
food,' their whole demeanor
changed. Their whole body
language changed. It was
like a breath of fresh air. I
saw a different side of
them."
The players invited her
into their homes, showed her
their kitchens, and went to
work cooking up their
favorite dishes. With most
big-league games starting
around 7 p.m., Loria con-
ducted most of her photo
shoots and interviews late in
the morning, giving the play-
ers enough time to cook and
still get to the ballpark in
time.
Mets pitcher Johan
Santana regaled her with his
handling of kitchen knives.
"All of a sudden, he starts
peeling root vegetables,
which are not easy to peel,
with the utmost skill," Loria
said. "Johan Santana just had
absolutely amazing culinary
knife skills in the kitchen,


peeling plantains and
yucas."
Longoria wowed her with
his genuine interest in cook-
ing.
"One of the first quotes
out of his mouth was 'I love
cooking. I love entertaining,'
" Loria said. "He showed me
how he made his mom's
stuffed cabbage."
Red Sox second baseman
Dustin Pedroia and Mets
third baseman David Wright
shared their daily eating
habits and superstitions.
Pedroia makes breakfast
every morning - slow
scrambled eggs are his spe-
cialty - while Wright eats
the same thing every day
when he's going hot at the
plate - home plate, that is.
"They all have routines,"
Loria said. "David Wright
eats in the team clubhouse
before he goes out on the
field. He'll eat chicken, or
even a peanut butter and
jelly sandwich. If he has an
amazing game that day, he'll
eat the same thing the next
day."
The Marlins' Johnson
always has a huge plate of
spaghetti the night before he
pitches. "Whenever my
wife's busy, I can do the
whole meal," said Johnson,
who has missed much of the
2011 season because of
injury.
He said his favorite meal
are the Navajo tacos he had
growing up. "My grandma
always made them," he said.
"Didn't happen a lot, but
we'd probably get them a
couple or three times a year."
That family recipe -
deep-fried bread rounds
topped with a mixture of
ground beef and corn - is
included in the book.
"A lot of it is comfort
food," Loria said. "And
there's something for every-
body. There's Southern cui-
sine in there, and the Latin
dishes are just delicious.
"There are similarities
between food and baseball.
They both translate across
cultures and generations, and
that's what's shown in the
book."

Miss Firecracker
pageant approaches

The 2011 Miss
Firecracker Pageant takes
the stage on July 1 in the
Garden Bar of the Bourbon
St. Pub, 724 Duval St., Key
West.
Produced by Terry
Paulson, the event is pure
camp but its intent is seri-
ous.
In July 1987, the Miss
South Carolina Pageant
was about to happen at a
posh local club. A compet-
ing club created the Miss
Firecracker Pageant, where
hairy chests were paired
with high heels. Charlie
Powell, now deceased,
moved the competition,
with some fine-tuning, to
Key West in 1994 to bene-
fit nonprofit organizations.
AIDS Help is the main
recipient.
The Garden Bar will
begin selling standing-
room tickets for the 2011
Miss Firecracker Pageant
at 7 p.m. (the pageant itself
begins at 8). General
admission is $20. Reserved
table seating ($100 for four
seats) is still available by
calling Paulson at AIDS
Help, 293-3666.
Those interested in par-
ticipating in the pageant
can also contact Paulson;
there is no application fee.

Red Hat Society

The Precious
Princesses of Paradise
chapter of the Red Hat
Society meets for lunch at

on June 29 at 12:30 p.m.
To find out more about

Jazz series brings big

voice to Cultural Center


Kevin Mahogany

headlines

July 2 program

L'Attitudes Staff

For those old enough
to remember big voiced
jazz singers like Johnny
Hartman and Big Joe
Turner, the Key Largo
Summer Jazz Concerts
series offers up Kansas
City jazz vocalist Kevin
Mahogany.
Mahogany's baritone
voice has been described
by Newsweek magazine
as "the standout jazz
vocalist of his genera-
tion."
He plays at 7 p.m.
Saturday, July 2, at the
Murray E. Nelson
Government and Cultural
Center.
Joining him on stage:
Doug Bickel, piano; Gary
Thomas, acoustic bass,
and Richard Hargett,
drums.
Mahogany's appear-
ance is the second in a
summer jazz series being
hosted by the Friends of
the Key Largo Cultural
Center, a group of
activists who pushed the
county to better utilize
the auditorium facility.
In March, the county
commission approved a
pilot program that
reduced fees for use of

the cultural center, which
had been a sticking point
for arts groups trying to
book the facility.
"The county has bent
over backwards to help,"
Kay Thacker, a founder
of the Friends group,
said.
To prove the county
venue can draw public
support, the Friends
group has booked a series
of jazz musicians and
singers for six concerts
this summer. "Jazz is
very popular and it's new
to the Keys," Thacker
said. "And the hotels and
motels in Key Largo area
are very pleased. It gives
residents and visitors
something to do besides
fishing, diving and snor-
keling."

'Cars 2': Will Pixar's



golden touch continue?


Spy spoofery
wins plaudits
in 'Variety'

Cars 2
Opens Friday, June 24
Rated G, 112 min.
The animated sequel to
2006's "Cars" opens this
weekend in 2D and 3D (I
prefer 2D). Starring the
voice talents of Owen
Wilson, Larry the Cable
Guy, John Turturro, Emily
Mortimer and Michael
Caine, Cars 2 takes
Lighting McQueen around
the world as he races in the
first World Grand Prix.
The movie has little to do
with the original and could
actually be called Mater:
The Spy Who Towed Me
because much of the story
revolves around the lovable
country-boy tow truck,
voiced again by Larry the
Cable Guy.
Mater is mistaken for a
spy and, in a series of mis-
adventures, crosses paths
with 007-style secret agent
Finn McMissile (Michael
Caine) and his winsome
associate Holly Shiftwell
(Emily Mortimer).
But almost as interesting
as the movie is the story of
Pixar itself. Driven by cre-
ative computer scientists and
brilliant artists and anima-
tors, most people probably
recognize the name of one of
Pixar's founders, Steve Jobs,
of Apple Computers.
But the names of the oth-


Craig Wanous


ers are
probably
unknown
to many.
Dr. Ed
Catmull
and Dr.
Alvy
Ray
Smith
brought
the pio-
neering
science


of com-
puter animation to the com-
pany and creative genius
John Lasseter was the artis-
tic addition to the original
team. In a perfect blend of
art and science, Pixar's
founders believe art chal-
lenges the technology and
technology inspires the art.
The company began in
1979 as the Graphics Group,
a division of LucasFilm,
George Lucas' film studio,
where Catmull, Smith and
their team created computer
software that allowed tradi-
tional cartoon cel animators
to use computer animation
with very little training. But
Lucas didn't have the
patience to wait for the tech-
nology to work in film and
began looking for a buyer.
In 1986, Apple's Steve
Jobs stepped in and paid $10
million to buy the division.
A newly independent com-
pany, named Pixar, was
headed by Catmull as
President, with Smith as
Executive Vice-President
and Director. Jobs served as
Chairman and Chief


Disney's latest family film summer movie 'Cars 2' opens
June 24.


Executive Officer.
Originally the company
sold computer hardware and
software to businesses, gov-
ernment agencies and the
medical community. One of
its clients was Disney
Studios. But the products
never sold very well and in
an effort to increase income,
Pixar employee John
Lasseter and the animation
department began making
computer-animated commer-
cials for other companies,
including Tropicana,
Listerine, and LifeSavers.
In 1991, Pixar made a
deal with Disney to produce
three computer-animated
feature films. But the com-
pany was still losing money
and Jobs - like Lucas - con-
sidered selling. He decided
to give Pixar another chance
after Disney agreed to dis-
tribute its first full-length
film, Toy Story, for the 1995
holiday season.
That movie grossed more


than $350 million worldwide
and helped Pixar raise more
than $150 million through a
public stock offering.
But although the partner-
ship was profitable for both
companies, Pixar com-
plained that the arrangement
with Disney wasn't equi-
table. Profits and production
costs were split 50-50, but
Disney owned all story and
sequel rights and also col-
lected a distribution fee. The
lack of story and sequel
rights led to a contentious
relationship that was only
resolved after Disney CEO
Michael Eisner was replaced
by Robert Iger.
After the leadership
change, the partnership
smoothed roiled waters and
Disney agreed to buy Pixar in
2006 for approximately $7.4
billion in stock. Steve Jobs,
the majority shareholder of
Pixar, became Disney's
largest individual shareholder

Visitors to the Santa

could hardly have predicted
the two Russian musicians
playing on the Third Street

headlining The Red Elvises.
The Venice Beach-based
rockabilly band, founded by

multiple albums, appear on
Fox and FX Television, and
grow to a six-piece ensem-

Dubbed Siberian surf
rockers, The Red Elvises
will play multiple gigs in the
Keys June 27-28 in
Marathon and June 29-30 in
Key West.
The Minneapolis Tribune
describes their pounding mix
as "a Molotov cocktail of...
rockabilly, surf, Tex-Mex,
klezmer, swing, Slavic
melodies, film scores, TV
theme songs, Middle Eastern
licks and gypsy scales."

Mahogany has record-
ed three solo albums for
Enja Records and Warner
Brothers. In 2002, he
released "Pride and Joy,"
a tribute to the Motown
era, on Telarc Records.
He has started his own
label, "MAHOGANY
JAZZ" with his partner
Rick Cioffi, and has two
projects scheduled for
release: "Kevin
Mahogany -Big Band"
and "To: Johnny
Hartman," a tribute to
the incredible vocalist of
the 1940-70's.
Hartman, who record-
ed with legendary jazz
saxophonist John
Coltrane, briefly worked
with Dizzy Gillespie's
group and was known
for his big bass vocals.
Big Joe Turner, also
from Kansas City, was
an American blues
'ln, llci" dubbed the
"Boss of Blues." Perhaps
he's best known for his
1954 recording of
"Shake, Rattle and Roll"
and the 1956 hit,
"Corrine, Corrina."
The Los Angeles
Times wrote: "Mahogany
is one of the first truly
gifted male vocalists to
emerge in years."

'Another winner?'


From Film,4B


and a member of Disney's
board of directors.
As part of the deal, John
Lasseter became Chief
Creative Officer of both
Pixar and the Walt Disney
Animation Studios, as well
as the principal creative
adviser at Walt Disney
Imagineering, which designs
and builds the company's
theme parks.
Years before, while in
school, Lasseter had worked
at Disneyland and later as
an artist for Disney
Animation Studios, where
he was fired five minutes
after a showing of his first
computer generated short
film, The Brave Little
Toaster. The reason given
was that unless the comput-
er could create movies faster
or cheaper, the studio didn't
need it. So, for Lasseter, the
Pixar/Disney partnership,
the merging of computers
and animation, brought him
full circle with his old
employer.
Catmull kept his position
as president of Pixar and
also become president of
Walt Disney Animation
Studios. Dr. Alvy Ray Smith
quit Pixar in 1991 after a
heated argument with Jobs
and, despite being a co-
founder of Pixar, his part in
company history has been
largely overlooked. There's
not a single mention of
Smith on the Pixar website.
For a further look at
Pixar, check out the docu-
mentary "The Pixar Story,"
available for sale or rent
from various film outlets or


web streaming.
Beginning with "Toy
Story," Pixar has produced
an unprecedented string of
box office hits: "A Bug's
Life," "Toy Story 2,"
M klIl\cl , Inc.," I iiilluig
Nemo," "The Incredibles,"
"Cars," R l.I.Ii, iile "
"WALL-E," "Up" and "Toy
Story 3."
The studio has earned 26
Academy Awards, seven
Golden Globes, and three
Grammys, among many
other awards and acknowl-
edgments. Its films have
grossed more than $6.3 bil-
lion worldwide. And "Cars
2," Pixar's first sequel since
"Toy Story 2," looks to be
another hit.
Variety calls it "the rare
sequel that improves on its
predecessor, this lightning-
paced caper-comedy shifts
the franchise into high gear
with international intrigue,
spy-movie spoofery and
more automotive puns than
you can shake a stickshift
at." And The tI1:
Reporter calls the film
"another Pixar N IIlKe'
where "the visual, verbal
and musical jokes practical-
ly exceed the speed limit."
So based on early
reviews and the proven
track record of the Pixar
team, I recommend "Cars
2," for the young and the
young at heart. But don't be
late to the theater: there's an
added bonus before the
main feature. And don't
leave early: Pixar usually
shows hilarious outtakes and
other bits during the end
credits. "Cars 2" should be
no exception.

Trust hosts medicinal

plant lecture June 27


Michele Williams, direc-
tor for the Southeastern
Region of Florida Public
Archaeology Network, will
be the guest speaker
Monday, June 27, at Island
Community Church.
She will discuss the histo-
ry of native American

the Matecumbe Historical
Trust lecture series.
For the past 20 years,
Williams has participated in
excavations throughout the
southeastern United States,


specializing in the use of
plants by prehistoric native
Americas.
Medicinal plants have a
long history of use and are
still the most commonly
used medicine in the world
today, sponsors said.
Her talk begins at 6:30
p.m. and is free and open to
the public.
Island Community
Church is at mile marker 83.
