The overall take was more than $40 million.Among the doctors charged: Joseph Castronuovo, 72, who lives in a $622,000 condo at 18 Fishermens Cove in Ocean Reef. It borders a canal and sits by the communitys airplane runway, which itself is adjacent to a golf course.Castronuovo, whom records say practices internal and nuclear medicine but isnt affiliated with any hospital, is charged with wire fraud and mail fraud. He faces up to 10 years in prison.The accusations:On the wire fraud: Castronuovo, along with others, did knowingly and willfully ... devise and intend to devise a scheme and artifice to defraud and to obtain property by means of false and fraudulent pretenses ... by means of wire communication in interstate and federal commerce....On the mail fraud: He and others used the U.S. Postal Service to further the enterprise.State Department of Health records show Castronuovos medical license expires on Jan. 13, 2013. The records list his qualifications as dispensing practitioner.His doctorate is from Georgetown University, and his training following medical school was at New York hospitals. Hes listed as an assistant professor at the New York University School of Medicine. The indictment says Castronuovo contracted with Executive Pain, a West Palm Beach clinic, from December 2009 through February 2010.

Fords Police Interceptor version of the Crown Victoria massive, sturdy and fast went off the market when the last of the 2011 model line was sold. Still, the Monroe County Sheriffs Office bought about 30 Crown Vics this year but added six Dodge Charger police cars muscle cars to the annual vehicle buy. We bought six Chargers to try them out, Undersheriff Col. Rick Ramsay said. We have started looking for our new full-time car thats best for our mission. The Sheriffs Office doesnt make the change willingly, as evidenced by its above-average purchase of Crown Victorias. The Crown Vic has been used forever. Its been good for us, Ramsay said. Its a full-size car with a lot of room inside and a big trunk. Getting a new shipment of the Fords allows the agency to transfer existing equipment lightbars, computer mounts and cage reinforcement (to protect the interior from aggravated prisoners) from retiring cars to the new. But the beginning of the end for the venerable Crown Vic has commenced. Although we are now in the delivery process of new Dodge Chargers, you will still see the Ford Crown Victoria used for years to come, said Sgt. Thomas Pikul, spokesman for the Florida Highway Patrol, which has used the Ford as its longtime workhorse. We still have many lowmileage Crown Victorias in our fleet, as well as new 2011s that are being outfitted for use, Pikul said. Youll see a combination of Dodge Chargers as well as Ford Crown Victorias used by the Florida Highway Patrol for the foreseeable future. Ramsay said the Sheriffs Office isnt yet fully sold on the Charger but prefers it to the Chevrolet Caprice police model used by municipal police in Key West and Key Colony Beach.

By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com 2011-12 budget nearly completeWith only one more public hearing scheduled before adoption of a 2011-12 spending plan, members of the Monroe County School Board on Tuesday approved an amended $80.05 million budget.Expenses for the fiscal year that began on July 1, projected at $80,052,314, are down from $82.23 million just two weeks ago, and $9.3 million from last year. Michael Kinneer, the School Districts chief financial officer explained the new reductions: The work thats been done on the budget since the last time I was here was to incorporate the changes were talking about the furlough days, the 1.5 percent and the outsourcing.Hes referring to more than $1 million in savings realized earlier this month when the board agreed to privatize about 70 custodial positions, as well as $2.2 million by ordering seven unpaid employee furlough days and the elimination of planned 1.5 percent wage increases.The budget as proposed would help the district avoid state financial oversight by keeping the general fund reserve balance at 4.29 of revenues higher than the number that triggers oversight; Kinneer tallied the reserves at $3,213,157.Superintendent Jesus Jara, calling the budget very tight, said that because hes technically filling out an elected term of office, its not pos-Union issues still rattling spending planBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSStudy: Human waste is killing the coralAmicroorganism from human waste causes a disease that is killing Caribbean elkhorn coral found off the Keys, according to a new study. The findings from the joint study by Rollins College and the University of Georgia come as certain areas of the Keys, particularly Islamorada, have yet to start construction of treatment systems to comply with a state mandate for centralized, advanced sewage treatment by December 2015. The state Department of Community Affairs imposed the sewage treatment requirement to stop sewage from faulty septic systems and cesspits from leaking into waters surrounding the Florida Keys. More than 90 percent of elkhorn coral has disappeared throughout the Keys in the past 15 years, the researchers said. It was listed for protection under the U.S. Endangered Species Act in 2006, as was staghorn coral. Rollins biology professor Kathryn P. Sutherland, Erin K. Kipp, an associate professor of environmental health at Rollins, and UGAecology professor James W. Porter said they had known since 2002 that the bacterium Serratia marcescens caused the white pox disease thatSpecifically, its responsible for white poxBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.ocmENVIRONMENTSee Schools,2ASee Pills,3ASee Coral,2ASee Chargers,3ALayton goes to the pollsThe city of Layton population around 175 gears up for a rare contested election.Story, 2A
Caroline Street getting a new lookKey West residents have an opportunity on Tuesday to weigh in on a beautification and infrastructure project designed to give Caroline Street a significant facelift.The public meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street.The specific area to be addressed begins near the citys Ferry Terminal on Trumbo Road, then turns onto Caroline Street, running down to the intersection with Elizabeth Street. Back in February, the Key West City Commission set aside $325,000 to upgrade the road, sidewalks, stormwater drainage, lighting, signs and landscaping. The money comes from a Tax Increment Fund associated with the Caroline Street sub-area under the auspices of the local Community Redevelopment Agency. Beginning in 1996, city staff created the CRA(the commission sitting under a different name) to oversee areas considered blighted: The Key West Bight, Caroline Street Corridor, Trumbo Road and parts of Bahama Village. Once the area was officially designated as blighted, 1996 became a baseline. Any property value and tax revenue generated based on the increase in property values above that baseline is collected, then annually reinvested in the area. Over the next three years, the city has tapped $1 million to execute the socalled Key West Bight Common Area Enhancement Plan. Thats based on a scheme designed by architect Michael Ingram that has the area retain its seafaring heritage while creating focal points to attract visitors by way of four plazas at the termini of Greene, William, Margaret and Grinnell streets, all of which end along the Gulfside bight.Public input to be taken Tuesday nightBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comwas killing much of the elkhorn coral found off the Keys and other places in the Caribbean. And they have known since then that the bacterium found on dying coral is the same species found in humans. But they didnt know if the bacterium killing the coral could have also come from other sources, like sea birds and Key deer, which also carry the pathogen in their waste. The researchers, however, recently conducted genetic analyses that showed that only the strain from human sewage matched the strain found in white pox diseased coral on the reef. Sutherland, Lipp and Porter inoculated fragments of coral with the strain found in both humans and animals living in the Keys. The coral samples were kept in closed seawater tanks to eliminate any risk of infection to wild reef populations.White pox disease appeared within five days of being exposed to the human strain of Serratia marcescens, according to the researchers. It causes white blotches and kills the overlying coral tissue, revealing the corals white limestone skeleton underneath.These bacteria do not come from the ocean, they come from us, Porter said in a statement.Porter added that once the entire Keys are connected to centralized sewers, human-caused white pox would likely cease to be a concern for Keys reefs. The problem is, in some places in Monroe County, advanced wastewater appears to be some ways off.Last year, Islamorada repealed a property assessment that would have raised funds to begin construction of a sewage treatment system. Anew assessment was approved this summer, but it is expected to raise only $20 million, while a sewage system for the entire incorporated village could end up costing more than $130 million. At this pace, many doubt the village will meet the 2015 deadline.The Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District and the city of Marathon are in the final stages of completing wastewater systems. Key West has had sewers for decades and replaced most of its laterals pipes, from the road to houses, in 2001. Key Colony Beach had a sewage treatment system before the state mandate.This problem is not like hurricanes, which we cant control, Porter said. We can do something about this one.The Serratia marcescens research is part of a larger five-year study the scientists are working on, investigating the ecology of white pox disease in the Keys. It is funded by a $2.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation.The bacterium is also very dangerous to humans and typically causes diseases most often associated with hospital-acquired infections in newborn infants and adults with compromised immune systems. These illnesses include respiratory problems, wound and urinary tract infections, meningitis and pneumonia.The Rollins and UGA scientists are also looking into what impact climate change may be having on the severity and prevalence of the disease on Keys coral.We are concerned that disease incidence or severity may increase with rising temperatures, reinforcing the importance of protecting nearshore water quality in a changing climate, Lipp wrote.The bacteria come from usFrom Coral,1A KeysNet.com Keynoter 2A Saturday,August 27,2011 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDA Y HIGH L O W SAT.9283 SUN.9283 MON.9283 TUES.9283 Forecast: Expect partly cloudy skies with a chance of thunderstorms.

Instead, hes taking an equivalent 3 percent pay cut.Im proposing to the board, Jara said, that you take a 3 percent reduction, as well. Jaras $140,524 salary will be reduced by $4,215. Board members, with Duncan Mathewson absent, agreed to reduce their $29,000 annual salaries, as well, totaling about $870 for each board member. As for the furlough days, administrators, principals and teachers will take seven, while school-related personnel like bus drivers and food service workers are set to take six. Although the board and administration have incorporated those reductions into the budget, whats absent is sign-off from the membership of the United Teachers of Monroe. Further, the reductions are not contained in a threeyear contract the two sides ratified in December. The labor/management standoff came to a head April 18, when a UTM bargaining team walked out of a negotiating session after being stymied in its efforts to get a financial analysis of the furlough days and reductions that impact the bargaining units. Instead, all they got was a budget handed to them by Bob Norton, a labor attorney representing the district, who said the information was in there. Kim Lowell, a UTM vice president and thirdgrade teacher at Key Largo School, told board members this week during a meeting at Coral Shores High School that the unilateral changes are disrespectful to teachers. We are a county that historically has had a very cooperative and collaborative relationship between the district administration and its employees. However, at this time, its sad to say that this relationship has seemed to change drastically. Youve chosen to spend lots of money that I thought we dont have in order to pay a labor attorney an hourly fee to unilaterally impose changes that are not being collectively bargained, she said. This is not only disrespectful to the employees that work in good faith for you. To that end, HummellGorman this week filed an amended unfair-labor-practices complaint over the furlough days with the Public Employees Relations Commission in Tallahassee; earlier in the month, the general counsel for that group dismissed a similar complaint. The final public budget hearing is set for Sept. 6 at 6 p.m. at Marathon High School.Union complaints still an issueFrom Schools,1A Schools unveil fraud hotlineThe Monroe County School District has unveiled a new Weband phonebased hotline that allows anonymous tipsters to report alleged waste, fraud and financial abuse impacting the schools. Oregon-based vendor EthicsPoint manages the system, which costs about $5,000 a year to operate. District Chief Internal Auditor Gentile said that once a caller phones in or engages in online dialogue with a service representative, he or she will be asked to detail the allegation, then be provided with a user ID and password if follow-up questioning is necessary.Theyre acting as a conduit of information flow, Gentile said of EthicsPoint. Very often when an anonymous tip or referral is made, theres not enough information to verify the facts. With the hotline, youre able to post questions when did this happen, which school, whats the date information thats important to establish some finding of fact.The service is available by visiting www.monroe .ethicspoint.com or by calling (866) 842-2093.Gentile has divided report subjects into three broad categories: Human resources, risk and safety, and other, with numerous subdivisions including discrimination, harassment, time abuse, data privacy, inappropriate use of technology and misuse of assets or services.The most egregious example of waste, fraud and abuse in the School District is the case of former administrator Monique Acevedo, whos serving an eight-year prison sentence for stealing more than $400,000 from the schools under the watch of her husband Randy, then the superintendent; thenGov. Charlie Crist removed him from office in the summer of 2009, and hes on three years of probation after being convicted of covering up Moniques theft.Asked how to gauge the effectiveness of a reporting system, Gentile said the clearest metric would be dollar savings. If there was waste and abuse, corrective action is taken, then those savings would be quantified.Asecond would be the culture change as employees, parents and the public feel more empowered to take ownership of their schools. The Monique Acevedo example may not have happened if the employees that were aware of it had a means of communicating it without a fear of reprisal.Gentile said the trend in introducing these sorts of programs is for a higher report volume at the onset, tapering off after awhile. He acknowledged a bit of acrimony surrounding the School boards and administrations relationship with teachers and taxpayers, both of whom are reeling from an annual budget that reflects more than $9 million in reduced expenditures. The hotline could be misread, he said. Its not a gotcha and its not some sort of a secret society. Its really a tool to help reestablish public trust.Anonymitys a key component of the programBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSCromartie draw a challengerUnlike its much larger neighbor to the west, the city of Layton will have a contested election this November.William Murchie is challenging four-term incumbent John Cromartie for seat 1 on the five-member City Council. The city has only around 175 residents or about 35 residents per council member. According to the Monroe County Supervisor of Elections office, it will be the first contested election in Layton since 2006, when Mayor Norman Anderson ran successfully against T. Scott Shamlin. The last council election was in 2005. Mayor is an elected position separate from the council. Murchie, 62, has been living full-time in the Keys for more than three years. The semi-retired civil engineer was in Sarasota for 26 years before that. He is married with three children. I just thought Id get more involved. Ive been going to the meetings for years and years and thought it would be interesting, he said. I have a little more time now. It seemed right to at least throw my hat in and give people a choice. Murchie said doesnt have many election issues outside of wanting to see better speeding enforcement on the citys canals. He says boaters often ignore the 5 mph no-wake zone. Cromartie did not return calls for comment by press time Friday. William Dilley (seat 3) and Philip Porter (seat 5) were elected unopposed this year. Anderson, Clark Snow (seat 2) and Katie Scott (seat 4) will be up for re-election in 2012.Contested race is a rarity in small cityBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comLAYTON KEY WEST KEYSNET.COM Subscriptions 743-5551
Scientists have made a promising advance for controlling dengue fever, a tropical disease spread by mosquito bites that arrived in Key West in 2009: Theyve rapidly replaced mosquitoes in the wild with skeeters that dont spread the dengue virus. That could be the solution for Key Wests dengue problem, said Florida Keys Mosquito Control District Executive Director Michael Doyle.More than 50 million people a year get the dengue virus from being bitten by infected mosquitoes in tropical and subtropical areas. It can cause debilitating high fever, severe headaches, and pain in the muscles and joints, and lead to a potentially fatal complication. Theres no vaccine or specific treatment.In Old Town Key West, dengue fever was confirmed in 27 people in 2009 the first time in nearly half a century the disease was found in Florida. There were 66 confirmed cases in 2010 but so far this year, there have been none, in large part due to efforts by the Monroe County Health Department and Florida Keys Mosquito Control District to educate residents about not leaving standing water breeding grounds around their homes, and more intense spraying.Some scientists have been trying to fight dengue by limiting mosquito populations. That was the goal in releasing genetically modified mosquitoes last year at sites in Malaysia and the Cayman Islands.Australian scientists took a different tack, they report in Thursdays issue of the journal Nature.First, they showed that Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, the chief carriers of the dengue virus, resist spreading that virus if they are infected with a particular kind of bacteria. Then they tested whether these resistant mosquitoes could displace their ordinary cousins in the wild, thus reducing the number of dengue-spreading mosquitoes.The resistant mosquitoes have an advantage in reproduction. Resistant females can mate with either resistant or ordinary mosquitoes, and all their offspring will be resistant. But when ordinary females mate with a resistant male, none of the offspring survive.For the experiment, scientists released more than 140,000 resistant mosquitoes over 10 weeks in each of two isolated communities near Cairns in northeastern Australia, starting last January. By mid-April, monitoring found that resistant mosquitoes made up 90 percent to 100 percent of the wild population. Doyle said hed like to try the experiment in Key West, but cant do anything until he gets federal permission. The result in Australia is a groundbreaking first step, Jason Rasgon of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore wrote in a commentary accompanying the paper. Rasgon, who did not participate in the study, said the next hurdle is to test the idea in areas where dengue is spread constantly, rather than sporadically as in Australia. Researchers will also have to show it works against varied strains of the dengue virus, he said. Keynoter staff supplemented this report. ATavernier man was doing the wrong kind of gardening on Gardenia Avenue, the Monroe County Sheriffs Office says. Atip led authorities on Wednesday to the Gardenia house in Tavernier where, detectives say, they found a marijuana growing operation, along with marijuana, guns and ammo. Arrested was Jonathan Esslinger, 25, charged with production of marijuana and possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. He was booked into the Monroe County Detention Center and has been released pending a court date.The Sheriffs Office says its Special Investigations Division received information that Esslinger was running a grow house. Just before 7 a.m. Wednesday, they went to his home, knocked and Esslinger answered.Detectives confronted him with the information and he reportedly admitted to growing marijuana and to a house search. The cops say they found a grow room with special lighting and other equipment for growing marijuana; 17 marijuana plants; 10.4 ounces of pot; and a rifle, shotgun and handgun, with ammunition for each gun. sell large quantities of controlled substances to American Pain Clinic [in Fort Lauderdale] and Executive Pain Clinic through the use of false and fraudulent pretenses....The two main defendants, brothers Christopher and Jeffrey George, who ran the clinics, hired complicit doctors [including Castronuovo] who agreed from as early as their job interviews to prescribe oxycodone and other controlled substances to patients without regard to medical necessity, with only a cursory physical examination of the patient and in violation of numerous federal and state laws and [Drug Enforcement Administration regulations regarding the storage and distribution of controlled substances, says the U.S. Attorneys Office in Miami.The U.S. Attorneys Office says addicts and traffickers would travel to the clinics from as far as Tennessee, Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia and elsewhere to obtain prescriptions at the defendantsclinics. The doctors typically prescribed a cocktail of controlled substances, including large quantities of oxycodone (30 mg and 15 mg), Xanax (2 mg) and/or Soma, with no individualized treatment plans or showing of medical need. In return, the complicit doctors were paid on a per capita basis depending on the number of patients they examined each day. The doctors were paid an average of $35,000 weekly, prosecutors say.The Miami Herald reports that West Palm Beach attorney Michelle Renee Suskauer is representing Castronuovo and that she said he has been fully cooperative with the federal government in this investigation.Overall, the indictment alleges racketeering conspiracy (18 defendants), money laundering conspiracy (19) possession with intent to distribute controlled substances (19), maintaining druginvolved premises (nine), and wire and mail fraud conspiracy (16, including Castronuovo).

Theres less room to hold a prisoner, and its tight in the Ford as it is. Theyre lower and not as easy to get into and out of.Deputy Paul Bean, who drives one of the Chargers as part of the Traffic Enforcement Unit, is sold on the new muscle car its quick takeoff, handling, smoothness and, yes, speed. But he concedes its a pretty tight fit in the drivers seat.Ford dominated the national police market for nearly two decades with its Crown Victoria (the consumer version was dropped in 2008). Ford has been working on a new police car possibly a Taurus for 2012. We have yet to see one, Ramsay said. They sent us some pictures but we dont have one we can sit in and drive. Standardizing the fleet as much as possible simplifies maintenance, repairs and training, he noted. The first batch of Chargers each costing about $23,000, around $1,000 more than the Crown Victorias has been assigned to the Traffic Enforcement unit. Its mostly the traffic guys who are in the cars all day, the undersheriff said. The agency received three Chargers as unmarked enforcement cars last year as part of a state program, but those came with a Hemi V-8 engine capable of really high speeds. All the guys want us to get the Hemi but were definitely going with the V-6, Ramsay said. We dont need to do a lot of highspeed pursuits. We want our guys to slow down.Best days gone for Crown VicsFrom Chargers,1A Breakthrough in dengue avoidance?Carrier bugs replaced with other skeetersAssociated PressPUBLIC HEALTHCops smoke out pot grow house25-year-old charged with cultivationTAVERNIER Photo courtesy SHERIFFS OFFICEThis is a product of the grow house,the Sheriffs Office says.Doctorspay: $35,000 weekly

While cruising on our trawler from Key Largo to Key West, we anchored for the night off Craig Key, under the Channel 5 Bridge, just east of the Fiesta Key campground. We were the only boat in the anchorage. We did some fishing from our dingy, and then tied it securely behind the trawler, using two tag lines. We cleaned our catch and ate on deck. Around 9 p.m., we checked the dinghy and we went inside to watch a movie. At 11 p.m., our 12-foot dinghy with 40 a horsepower motor was gone. It had been just a dozen feet from where we sitting inside, watching the film, and thieves managed to get it without attracting our attention. We reported it to the U.S. Coast Guard and Sheriffs Office. Adeputy came out and took a full report. We surmised that someone swam out, untied the dinghy and drifted off to meet a partner on a nearby motorboat. The boat was found two days later in the mangroves off Fiesta Key. All the lines were cut and the motor was gone. We found out that stealing engines has become a business in the Keys, so fellow cruisers, take precautions. Anchor around other boats so there are many eyes to watch out. Lock up your boat. Bring your dinghy aboard (we meant to that night but it got late, etc).This could have turned into a much worse situation if the thieves had come aboard or we had caught them in the act.Evelyn McGlone Key LargoDont cut pilotspayAs a long-time resident of the Keys and a commercial pilot, I would like to comment on the proposed cuts to the pilotssalaries for the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District. To make arbitrary cuts in the salaries of the pilots who are flying over my house at 100 feet, dodging wires and risking their lives so that we dont have the nuisance of mosquito bites, seems unfair. To me, these aviators deserve more, not less, money to risk their lives on a daily basis.To the bug board, I say this: Look elsewhere for cuts. I appreciate the experience and professionalism these pilots show and their risk should be rewarded. By cutting salaries, all you are going to do is perhaps force pilots to take their skills and expertise elsewhere.Walt Gastaldi IslamoradaFlaw storm plansWith Hurricane Irene meandering up the East Coast, thankfully having spared the Keys, brings to light the head-in-the sand approach of Monroe Countys emergency management plans for us. They seem to operate under the rules and regulations propagated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which really would not relate to the real live conditions in the Keys if a hurricane strikes. Some of their programs are of value, but with little follow-through are almost valueless.As an example, several years ago I attended a program called CERT (Community Emergency Response Teams) that taught citizens to evaluate damages within their own neighborhoods, which they know best. They even issued a backpack equipped with supplies to do this. However, since that time, they have never offered an update to that training program, nor to my knowledge offered it to newer residents. I also undertook training as a shelter manager. The one time I was called upon, they closed the shelter at noon on the day of the storm. If a storm followed a path similar to Irene but took a path up U.S. 1 from Key West to Florida City, their systems would be useless. Instead of plans being based on mandatory evacuation, they should be based on in-place support. As an example, several years ago one of my neighbors left on an evacuation order and spent nine hours on the road, going as far north as Stuart before turning back because their were no motel vacancies available and the Florida International University shelter was full. Mandatory evacuation is easy to apply to tourists because the county just orders all hotels and motels closed. However, historically, few residents actually leave.Abetter plan would be to install seagoing containers that are used on ships and sold really cheap once they have served their usable commercial life but are still watertight. Place them in neighborhoods and equip them with essentials such as water, blankets and first aid equipment. This way, residents could walk to them if roads are impassible.Another ridiculous action is closing all the hospitals, which should at least have emergency medical people on duty.Do I have all the answers? Definitely not. However, what I do know is that the system is broken and should be fixed. Howard Gelbman Key LargoA job well doneMost often, we are quick to criticize but slow to congratulate for a job well done. One job that deserves top accolades is the recent repaving of Eaton Street in Key West. Whoever was responsible for the planning and execution of the Eaton Street project deserves five gold stars. It was obvious that the contractors knew exactly what they were doing and had the work staff to do it right and quickly. The work began on Monday morning and finished by noon on Friday unbelievable. My very best and sincerest congratulations to the city and county staff and all who were involved. It makes us proud to live in Key West. Harvey W. Server Key WestNo crime equals no immediate deportation, but larger issue begs more comprehensive approachIn a welcome sign that President Obama is finally willing to use his authority to repair the nations broken immigration system, U.S. officials are suspending deportation proceedings against undocumented immigrants who have no criminal record and pose no threat to national security or public safety. Such a step is long overdue. Since he came into office more than 30 months ago, Obama has been strong on enforcement of immigration laws in an apparent effort to win legislative partners who will support comprehensive reform. But anti-immigration forces on Capitol Hill, where reform remains stalled, have been unyielding. Their solution: Deport them all, as if their dream of rounding up 10 million-plus human beings and shipping them out of the country in boxcars were anything other than a xenophobic fantasy. Sadly, theres virtually no hope that the stalemate will end before the end of Obamas first term. The presidents only recourse was to use his executive powers to amend immigration policy in an effort to rid the deportation/detention system of distractions that clog the courts and jails. This is a bow to common sense, designed to make the nations 59 immigration courts more effective by expediting review of some 300,000 immigrant cases in the system. In a way, this new policy has a lot in common with those consent decrees in tort litigation in which the defendant adamantly refuses to acknowledge any wrongdoing yet simultaneously promises never to do it again. In this instance, the agencies involved in deportation have consistently denied that various enforcement programs constitute an immigration dragnet that scoops us big fish and minnows alike. But in practice, if not by design, the policy has removed law-abiding parents forced to leave their U.S. citizen children behind; college-bound students with good academic records; care-givers who must abandon the elderly; and many others who work hard, pay their taxes, and obey the law. The larger issue is that the new policy is just a temporary measure that fails to deal with the underlying problem. Its a tourniquet on a bleeding limb. Until Congress approves comprehensive reform, Americas immigration problem will continue to fester. Miami HeraldCity bills become an issueTony Yaniz, a candidate for the Key West City Commission, reacted this week to reports that he owes more than $3,000 in sewer and trash bills by saying everyone makes mistakes. However, his situation isnt unique: In total, residents owe more than $600,000 in sewer and trash bills to the city. Take Barry Barroso, whos running for the Group 1 seat on the Utility Board of Key West, which oversees Keys Energy Services. Until recently, he owed about $8,200 in back fees for trash and sewer service.Barroso had several delinquent accounts in his name, many attached to some of the 21 rental units he maintains around town. Friday, however, he provided ample documentation showing that he caught up on the accounts. City spokeswoman Alyson Crean confirmed they are now current.Barroso expressed frustration that rather than discontinue sewer and trash service and turn delinquent accounts over to a collections agency, the city forces him and others into that role.Theres no enforcement, he said. At the end of the day, it falls on me. Its not my utility. Theyre asking the landowner to do collections for the city. Its unfair.Barroso is challenging incumbent Ty Symroski, who doesnt have a sewer or trash account in his name, for a four-year term.Back to Yaniz: His delinquent bill, associated with a Flagler Avenue home, dates to 2008, Crean said, and totaled $3,428.50; she said he paid $1,800 toward his balance on Thursday and indicated the rest would be paid quickly.Yaniz couldnt be reached for comment but he has taken to social media website FaceBook multiple times this week to address the situation.I was floored, he posted to his status update Wednesday afternoon. If a bill is owed, well pay it. Hopefully thru [sic] a payment plan. Like most of you, were trying to deal with these hard economic times. From 10:39 a.m. Thursday: I too am human and if I have made any mistakes in my 61 years in this life, it is part of who I am. Yaniz is the director of sales and marketing at the Coconut Beach Resort; hes running against former City Manager Julio Avael in District 4. Incumbent Commissioner Barry Gibson, whos running to be Monroe County Supervisor of Elections, is vacating that four-year seat. Based on data provided by Crean, the two candidates for Utility Board Group 5, Charles Bradford and Tony Estenoz, are current on their accounts, as are Avael and incumbent Mayor Craig Cates. Mayoral contenders Margaret Romero and Carie Noda, like Symroski, do not have sewer or trash accounts in their names.Larger issue: Whos job is it for collection?By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST ELECTION Redistricting gets initial OKThe Monroe County Commission has OKd county staffs plans to resize local election districts this fall. The county is required to redistrict commission seats every 10 years, after each U.S. census, and must even the population number in all five districts. School Board and Mosquito Control Board districts coincide with County Commission districts, so how the lines are drawn affects three elected bodies.Growth Management Director Christine Hurley told the County Commission on Aug. 17 that each district would have roughly 14,618 residents based on Monroes 2010 population count of 73,090.The redrawn maps show that District 2 (half of Marathon and part of the Lower Keys) and District 1 (Stock Island and part of the Lower Keys) will change the most. And, according to Hurley, District 3 (Key West) is overpopulated by 800 residents. We knew we had to begin by taking it from [District] 3 and moving it to [District 1].... We ended up shifting population up the county, she said.As a result, the new maps show Boca Chica, Big Coppitt, Geiger, Shark and Rockland keys are proposed to become part of District 2. In addition, a portion of District 2, from Knights Key to 30th Street on the oceanside in Marathon, will become part of District 4.Commissioner Kim Wigington said she prefers not to lose Big Coppitt Key if possible. We do have to pass this by the Department of Justice [due to historic voting-rights violations] and if you do anything that looks strange to them, its going to hold everything up, County Attorney Suzanne Hutton said.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY

Par Pharmaceuticals Inc. and Par Pharmaceuticals Companies Inc. of Spring Valley, N.Y., were accused of inflating prices for medications that were billed to Medicaid. Ven-A-Care of the Florida Keys will get $9 million for its whistleblowing efforts, and its attorneys will get $5 million. The rest of the settlement will be split among the federal government and four states. Floridas share is $9.5 million. The federal share is $90.95 million. Texas is due $24.4 million plus $5 million for legal expenses. Kentucky will get $4.5 million, Alaska $900,000 and South Carolina $3.15 million. Alaw firm that represented Kentucky will be paid $1.6 million. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondis office announced the settlement with the companies on Thursday. Bondis office says VenA-Care filed a complaint on the behalf of Florida alleging violations of the states False Claims Act, which allows private citizens or companies to file lawsuits to provide the government information about wrongdoing. If the government is successful in resolving or litigating the claims, the whistleblower that initiated the action can receive between 15 percent and 25 percent of the amount recovered. The attorney generals office investigated the claims and intervened in the lawsuits. Thursdays settlement announcement was just the latest in a long string of fraud cases brought to federal and state attention by the Key West-based company. Ven-A-Care is one of the most successful Medicare and Medicaid whistleblowers in the country. The company has recovered billions of taxpayer dollars and collected millions from settlements for its efforts. Ven-A-Care opened in 1987 on Duck Avenue to provide home infusion therapy to HIV-positive patients and elderly residents with kidney failure. The company soon noticed that Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements were often several times the actual price of drugs, prompting them to probe further. When Ven-A-Care spurned a generous buyout offer from National Medical Care, National Medical launched a campaign to force Ven-A-Care out of business. In fighting back, Ven-ACare discovered National Medical was paying kickbacks to doctors who prescribed medicines and services that werent needed, then billing Medicare and Medicaid sums far in excess of what the medicines and services cost. The Justice Department eventually got a $486 million settlement from National Medical, and Ven-A-Care received $40 million as its reward under the False Claims Act.Company gets $9 million share of settlementStaff and wire reportMEDICAID FRAUDKey West whistleblower wins another fraud caseIN BRIEFSeaplane flights to Bimini launchedKey West-based charter airline Tropic Ocean Airways has launched seaplane flights between South Florida and Bimini in the Bahamas.

At the Marathon City Council meeting Tuesday, Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay once again questioned just what the problem is with the state Department of Transportations reconstruction project.The new walkway was supposed to be done back in April. Then DOTsaid it would be July. Its now late August, and Ramsay has complained several times about the exposed rebar and electrical lines keeping anyone from using the walkway.Its still not finished and theres cones all over the place, he said. The major delay was supposedly issues with approving aluminum railing to be installed on the walkway. Once that was settled, work on the bridge was slated to begin July 25. Public Works Director Carlos Solis told the council he met with DOTofficials earlier Tuesday. Were looking at the end of next week to get that walkway open, he said. The bridge and its light poles are part of a $5.57 million federally funded DOTproject that includes repaving U.S. 1 from mile marker 49.1 to 54.6. Also Tuesday:Ramsay said palm fronds from trees planted recently in the U.S. 1 median along Florida Keys Marathon Airport are falling into the highway. Solis told the council that the city is responsible for maintaining the trees, while DOTremains responsible for the grass in the medians. He said city Public Works crews will be on the lookout for palm fronds.City Manager Roger Hernstadt said he would meet with Grassy Key residents over their concerns about brightly colored yellow posts guarding sewer pipes there. Well set a time to go out there and be available to answer any questions, he said.Latest guess: Itll open by end of weekBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Planning board: No to OverseasMarathon residents met over drinks at the Overseas Liquor & Lounge for nearly 60 years up until the landmark bars closing in February 2008. The citys oldest package store and watering hole may never reopen for that purpose again due to a 2007 law banning liquor sales at businesses within 1,500 feet of a school, church or another establishment selling liquor. However, the Overseas was grandfathered in because it already existed, but lost the right to reopen as a bar when it ceased to operate as such for more than 18 months. City law considers the use abandoned at that point. Marathon resident John Foster is under contract to purchase the Overseas building so he can reopen a bar, but was told by city Planning Director George Garrett that liquor sales there are now non-conforming. That led attorney Frank Greenman, who represents property owner Joseph Ardolinos estate, to appeal Garretts interpretation to the citys advisory Planning Commission Monday. Ultimately, Foster lost the planning board voted 4-1, with Eugene Kyle the only dissenter, to uphold Garretts decision. Greenman argued that representatives for the estate have never stopped trying to sell the site and have made numerous repairs and improvements since 2008. Were gong to concede ... for over 18 months the Overseas package store was not operating. But does discontinuance equal abandonment? he said. Marathon probate attorney Richard Warner also represents the Ardolino estate and testified before the commission that its the most difficult case hes ever dealt with. He said the estate has been making every effort to sell it the property. We would have it back on the tax roll with someone in the position to improve it and upgrade it. This property has historical value to the city, he said. Greenmans other main point is that the city did not properly notify the Ardolino estate that its ability to sell liquor was going to expire. Its a similar argument to the one made by attorneys for Atlanta-based businessman Jack Galardi, who owns the former Mermaid Club stripbar property at 15th Street and U.S. 1 and has been trying to reopen it. They argued Galardi wasnt notified when adult entertainment was banned outside of industrial zoning; the Mermaid, which closed around 2004, was not in an industrial area. Assistant City Attorney Joe Jimenez said the city is not obligated to notify property owners of non-conforming uses.As a matter of law in Florida, the land development regulations and any ordinance in the code is deemed properly noticed to everyone, he said. We have a very simple 18-month provision. If you cant make it happen then, the city has to go on enforcing its policy because ... where does it end?But that doesnt close the door on the Overseas property. Marathon unlike many other cities, according to Jimenez has a variance process property owners can pursue. So its not an absolute prohibition; were not taking anything. If you find your buyer, you can walk into this body and apply for a variance, he said. All but one of the five planning commissioners agreed with Jimenez. Kyle, the dissenter, said he has concerns with the lack of notice to the Ardolino estate. Im not seeing an overt act justifying a finding of abandonment. In fact, Im seeing just the opposite. We are talking about land rights here, he said. Commissioner Morgan Hill said she was involved with writing the citys landuse laws and that great care was taken to include the variance provision. We went one step further to put the tools in place to allow somebody to come back in and gave them the tools to do it. I dont think modifying this is the way to go. They need to go back before us and the City Council, she said.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONLobster season looks strong early onEarly harvests of lobster encouraged Florida Keys commercial fishermen, and Hurricane Irenes trek to the north made them thankful. Were all very happy that the storms seem to be veering to the north, said Bruce Irwin, a longtime Marathon commercial fisherman. Catches have been real good in some places and fair in others, Irwin said. There seem to plenty of big [lobster] out there.The main thing is [Hurricane Irene] missed us, Key Largo fishermen Ernie Piton agreed. Its been going great in the first part of the season, but that storm would have ruined everybodys year.In the active hurricane season of 2005, storms destroyed about half the lobster and stone-crab traps fished in Keys waters, according to studies. Dockside prices at this years start generally have been running from $6 to $7 per pound for whole lobster. Alegal-sized lobster typically weighs about 1 pound. Thats not as good as we thought we might get, Irwin said, but were hoping it gets better. In recent years, strong demand from China and other Far East countries sparked a rebound in the price of lobster. So fishermen are watching the Asian holiday calendar, said Kill Kelly, executive director of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association. Alot of the Asian holidays occur in October and November, Kelly said. That should not only drive the sale prices up, but increase the demand for live lobster. Alot of our guys have been gearing up to handle live lobster. Prices paid by buyers for the Asian live-lobster market may double the price for frozen tails.Monroe County last season produced about 5.1 million pounds of commercially caught spiny lobster in Florida. That accounts for approximately 90 percent of the statewide 5.66 million-pound catch, according to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reports.Overall, the state lobster catch was worth an estimated $35 million. The first three months of the regular season August through October generated 3.56 million pounds statewide, or 63 percent of the catch for the entire eightmonth season. Catches were a little sporadic in the opening days this year as guys worked to get their traps baited up, Kelly said. Weve seen it get progressively better, but its still not as robust as wed like it in the Key West area. Kelly said it is common for lobster season to start stronger in the Upper and Middle Keys, then pick up in the Lower Keys a few weeks after the early harvests. The catch seems to work its way south and west as the season goes by, he said.The dark side of the season open has been an increase in reports of thefts from lobster traps, Kelly said.The industry generally suffers a loss of 8 to 10 percent to thieves but its running about 20 percent now, Kelly said. Its a very serious problem. That could mean a seasonlong loss of 1 million pounds, or $7 million in revenue, he said. Thats money thats being taken straight from the pockets of the men and women who fish for a living, Kelly said. Were declaring war on the people who steal and molest our traps. FWC marine officers met with fishermen this week to discuss the ongoing thefts. Theyre working with us to bring thefts to a screaming halt, Kelly said. Marine officers pledged to bring in undercover investigators and the latest in electronic surveillance equipment, Kelly said. In the 2010-11 season, Monroe County had 650 licensed commercial trappers, and another 125 commercial lobster divers. In all, an estimated 1,200 people in the Keys derive their livelihoods primarily from the lobster season.COMMERCIAL FISHINGBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgFinal whale off to SeaWorldThe last pilot whale remaining in the Florida Keys since a mass stranding nearly four months ago will be transferred to SeaWorld of Orlando to continue its rehabilitation. SeaWorld received federal approval today to provide a permanent, caring home for the remaining rescued pilot whale that has been deemed nonreleasable, SeaWorld spokeswoman Becca Bides said Friday. The 12-foot, 1,800-pound whale has been under care at the Marine Mammal Conservancy in Key Largo since a few days after the May 5 stranding. Apilot whale calf, originally identified as whale 301, that was also at the MMC was driven in a special truck to SeaWorlds new strandedanimal facility in late July, and continues to recover. That 900-pound calf has been renamed Fredi.The pod of 23 pilot whales stranded May 5 off Cudjoe Key. Most died at the scene, but two males were released after being deemed healthy enough to survive. The two females, Fredi and 300, are the only other survivors.The calf cannot be released into the wild because it apparently lost its mother in the stranding, and has not learned survival skills. The adult female suffers from curvature of the spine and lung problems.The [adult] whale is showing signs of improvement but is unlikely to completely recover, said Erin Fougeres, a Fisheries Service marinemammal administrator.SeaWorld is the only marine-mammal facility in North America with pilot whales in its collection. The Orlando park has a new facility to treat stranded animals, and a veterinary facility. Transportation for 300 is being arranged. No move date has been determined.CUDJOE KEY WHALE STRANDINGKeynoter Staff

He especially praised his younger players. Juniors Ellie Leopold, Laura Irwin, and Julia Lozano ... served and played well throughout, he said. Key West coach Jessy Hulme said she was pleased with her teams effort. The senior-laden squad which has big playoff hopes this year has made great strides since last season, she said. This year is the first time our team is seasoned and they have a lot of varsity playing time experience. Its a different team feeling than any previous years, she said. Hulme said the Conchs put a lot of plays together as a team Thursday. They beat Marathon, 25-17 and 25-12, in the tournaments third match. I was impressed they played smart and made good decisions, like knowing where the hole is on the other side and putting the ball there, she said. Dolphins coach Teresa Konrath has said this season will be a rebuilding one. But she was pleased to see the girls play close against their moreexperienced county rivals. Theres definitely a rebuilding sense going on and theyre in a new offense and defense, Konrath said. But I saw them pick up balls I thought they wouldnt. I saw some good play.

DeMaria, a senior, is ready to lead the Conchs girls swim team into the new season, which begins at 5 p.m. Wednesday against Marathon at the Florida Keys Community Colleges aquatics center. Ive been around the water all my life, she said the other day. My dads an avid fisherman and my moms a marine biologist. I love the ocean and what it holds. In the pool, she excels in the 100-yard breaststroke, an event she has won at the county championships (against Coral Shores and Marathon) three consecutive years. Her best time of 1 minute, 18 seconds is five seconds off the school record held by Liza Davila, a record she hopes to break. Ive changed my stroke a little, and Im constantly watching swimming videos, she said. Out of the water, she excels in almost everything. Possessing a 4.47 gradepoint average, she is a vice president in the National Honor Society, editor of the school newspaper, and flutesection leader and historian of the band. She also has more than 400 hours of community service, and has been a Girl Scout for 13 years. Shes a leader, said Key West coach Lori Bosco. She leads by example. Im not outwardly competitive, DeMaria said, but inside I push myself. She is co-captain of the girls swim team with Hanna Valek, whos also a senior breaststroker coming off a strong junior season. Other returners include junior Lauren SchlegalBoraas (butterfly and distance freestyle), junior Alice Tallmadge (freestyle), junior Michelle Konik (breast and fly), junior Devin Osterhoudt (free), junior Alice Palay (free), senior Shannon Brown (free) and sophomore Madison Nasser (fly). The boys team will be led by senior co-captain A.J. Hally, who won most of his 200-yard freestyle races last season, and is also efficient in the butterfly. Hes more focused and has been working on his kicks and turns, said Bosco. Other boys to watch include co-captain Zane Osborn, a sprinter who will be a force on relay teams, and distance specialist Vincent Wassylenko, who won the 500 free by 14 seconds at last seasons county meet. He also swims the backstroke. Bosco, the high schools longest-tenured coach, is in her 15th season. In all that time, her enthusiasm and her tan have never faded.Conch swimmers open season on WednesdayKEY WEST SWIMMING By DICK WAGNERKeynoter Contributor Photo by BERT BUDDEKey West senior swimmer Dora DeMaria shows the wakeboard she bought in the eighth grade with money she received for her essay on immigration that won first place in the Harry S.Truman Symposium writing contest.

Thats because many of its board members and tutors are graduates themselves of Literacys Basic Read and English as a Second Language programs. Maria Triana and Viktor Slavov are prime examples. Triana, from Colombia, became the groups Middle Keys coordinator following graduation, and still tutors 4.5 hours a week. When I came to this country 10 years ago, I was a very lonely person, she said. I had no friends, no job, all because I couldnt speak English. Then her husband saw an ad for free Literacy classes and they enrolled. Soon, I started speaking a little English and was able to find a job, Triana said. I worked in housekeeping [at a hotel] for three years while I continued studying. Later, I worked at the front desk for seven more years at the same place. I continued studying and improving English with my teacher. She later went to work at Marathon High School, and now has her own cleaning business, working with two vacation rental companies, cleaning 20 houses weekly and employing three full-time workers and seven parttimers. Slavov, a chef at Tavern n Town at the Marriott Key West Beachside Hotel, is from the Czech Republic. I was an LVAstudent 12 years ago, says Slavov, a Literacy board member the past two years. I started out working as a dishwasher. It was the best I could do, knowing little English. After I learned more English, I worked my way up to prep cook and years later I became a chef. I found that when you learn better English, you get better jobs. Doors of opportunity open because of the language. Literacy there are more than 100 active tutors countywide has two programs: Basic Read for native-born Monroe County adults who need help improving their basic reading and writing; and English for Speakers of Other Languages, which targets foreign-born adults.

Some spent the summer in countries such as Ecuador and Turkey to live and learn a different culture while others spent part of their summer serving in Third World or developing countries such as Honduras and Guatemala. Leah Sutter and Melanie Meroni, recent high school graduates from the Upper Keys, along with Rachel Timmerman, spent 10 days in Honduras traveling with Torch Missions. The group built six houses and worked in a special-needs orphanage, food distribution centers and a womens education center. In Guatemala, Upper Keys students Almaneri Correa, Devante Mills, Xotchil Musser and Vivian Sardar, along with Xochi Musser and Michele Zofchek, worked for a nonprofit that serves Mayan children and youth. Mayan Hope offers or coordinates housing, education, medical and other vital services to impoverished and neglected children. The youths taught in a school for special-needs students and worked in gardens while using their language skills. Correa was inspired to travel to Guatemala after she met Nobel laureate Rigoberta Menchu Tum at a PeaceJam Conference. Correa says of her trip, I have always appreciated what I have, but after spending time with these kids, my eyes and heart were opened. I have so much and I want to spend my life helping others and bringing change wherever I go. Cassidy Burgos and Marina Kay Wiatt, both from the Middle Keys, traveled to Turkey and Ecuador respectively this summer through the Experiment in International Living, where service was part of their itinerary (several other Keys students traveled to other nations this past summer through the Experiment in International Living). Burgos was influenced by another Nobel laureate, Shrin Ebadi, whom he met during the PeaceJam Conference. Ebadi advised him to travel to a country different from his own to broaden his perspective about the world. Wiatt, meanwhile, spent five weeks in Ecuador with a local family so she could experience the culture first hand. She volunteered at an orphanage. Be the Change of the Florida Keys is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to create opportunities so every child in Monroe County can feel safe, loved and celebrated. For more information, call Michele Sutter at 852-1664.Some build homes,others help elsewhereOUR YOUTH Xochi Musser,Xotchil Musser,Devante Mills,Vivian Sardar, Michele Zofchek and Almaneri Correa stand outside the Mayan Hope complex in Guatemala,where they spent 10 days working.

This years edition takes place Sept. 24 (kickoff party on the 23rd), with the course covering the Upper Keys, mostly Islamorada. Heres how it works: Floating rings are set up in the water off various venues, such as Holiday Isle Resort, with players traveling by boat to each hole. There are a maximum of 40 teams. Each team has four players, plus a designated boat driver. Each team is given a flag to display on their boat identifying them as players. Each player gets two shots (with the option to buy mulligans) at a floating target positioned at varying distances from the land-based tee. The golf balls are biodegradable and become fish food after 96 hours. The nonprofit Conch Life Scramble Inc. organizes the event, which is a fundraiser for nonprofits. In the past, recipients have included the Matecumbe Historical Trust and Voices for Florida Keys Children, which supports youths in the court systems guardian ad litem program.

Sound like fun? Well, surprisingly, it actually is. The two Brits are Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, both of whom starred in director Michael Winterbottoms 2005s Tristram Shandy: ACock and Bull Story. Coogan is probably most recognizable in the U.S. from his role as Octavius in the two Night At The Museum films. The Trip reunites the trio in a very funny movie about, well, basically about nothing. While the movie only lightly touches on the purpose of the trip, the director wisely concentrates on the repartee between the two main characters. The end result is an enjoyable film. The Trip started as a TVseries in the UK and Winterbottom has woven some of those episodes into a 107-minute film. The premise is that Coogan is hired by a London newspaper to write about fine restaurants in a rural area of England. He doesnt want to make the trip alone but cant find anyone to tag along with him. After his girlfriend and several others turn him down, he works his way to the bottom of T his British import is wit writ largeFILM REVIEWCraig Wanous KEYS FILM Film poster from British film The Trip.See Film,7B Beer masters compete for bragging rightsPicture 12 dozen different beers on tap or chilled in bottles waiting to quench your thirst. Such a diverse assortment of suds can only be found at Key Wests BrewFest, starting Thursday, Sept. 1. The lineup includes 27 tents with 140 beers to choose from, along with beer experts on hand to answer questions. Megan Coccitto, sales manager at Southernmost Hotel Collection, said the BrewFest vendors include three distributors, two importers and three home brewers. Flavors range from deep, dark and stout to light and citrus notes, depending on the brewer and the style of fermented grain being served. Beerfests may not be for so-called wine snobs, but there are a lot of crossover drinkers who appreciate both, according to industry watchers. And we can thank the Romans for this, since it was the Roman conquest of Europe that introduced wine to beer-brewing Celtic tribes, especially in Germany. The American Association of Wine Economists published a scholarly paper in April this year in which researchers cite global patterns of trade as influencing tastes for alcoholic beverages. In fact, economic conditions drive consumption patterns more than any other thing, noting that per capita consumption has decreased in traditional beer drinking nations while it increased strongly in emerging economies. Recently, China has overtaken the U.S. as the largest beer economy, concluded economists Liesbeth Colen and Johan Swinnen o f the University of Leuven, writing in the American trade industrys magazine. Lest we allow China to usurp our longstanding beer traditions, find out for yourself what your taste buds have been missing at the Key West BeerFest Sept. 15.

The film then follows the two as they travel the back roads of England to review different restaurants in the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. With no screenwriters credited, The Trip is more documentary than movie and seems almost entirely ad-libbed. If thats truly the case, its a witty exercise in improvisation, sly humor and spot-on impressions of famous people, including Michael Caine, Sean Connery, Woody Allen, Liam Neeson and others. Both men are gifted mimics and get into friendly but semi-serious competitions to see who can do the best impression. The well-chosen tag line for the movie is Eat, drink and try not to kill each other, a good indication of where the relationship is headed. Their battling Michael Caine imitations are hilarious and while Coogan wants to believe that his is the better of the two, you can tell that he is not quite sure. Director Winterbottom manages to insert a tone of melancholy and some reflections on mid-life anxiety that give a nice balance to the comedic tone of the film. He also offers a look at the competitiveness of male friendships that will ring true to the men in the theater. I do recommend the movie but with a couple of cautions. While the actors are funny, watching two mimics do impressions for almost two hours might be a bit of a stretch. I can see where it would work as a 30-minute TVseries but it might seem too repetitive for some. And the subplot about Coogan trying to decide whether or not to take a starring role in an American TVseries is distracting and doesnt really add to the film. But if you enjoyed Seinfeld, the TVshow about nothing, then The Trip, a film about nothing, may be just your cup of tea. One last caveat: make your dinner reservations before seeing the movie. Most of the food featured in The Trip looks delicious and you may leave the theater desperately seeking the nearest restaurant.Seinfeldfans should enjoyFrom Film,6B LOBSTER BAKE On The BeachEvery Wednesday starting at 7pmMorada Bay Beach Caf MM 81.6 Breakfast 7-11am with Island Style Benedicts Including Fresh Lobster & Crab Bloody Mary's and Mimosas!

The earliest indications of beer production in Europe are from around 3000 BC. Liesbeth Colen and Johan Swinnen From Beer Drinking Nations The Determinants of Global Beer ConsumptionA few fun facts on the history of beer:Provisions on Noahs ark included beer. Babylonians produced 20 varieties of beer and paid some workers with beer,not coins.Chinese brewers used wheat to make samshu.Roman legions introduced beer to middle Europe in 55 BC.Monasteries in Europe kept the recipes and beer traditions alive from 500 to 1000 AD.The first beer in the New World came from Sir Walter Raleighs Virginia colony in 1587.Americas first commercial brewery opened in 1612 in New Amsterdam (New York).Harvard College had its own brewhouse in 1674.Munich established the very first Oktoberfest in 1810. Pilsen,a town in Bohemia,created the first known golden lager (previous brews were all heavier ales). Adolphus Bush pioneered the double-walled rail car and a series of ice houses in the 1870s,allowing beer to be shipped refrigerated over long distances establishing the first national beer brand (Budweiser).Louis Pasteur discovered the secrets of yeast in the fermentation process,developing pasteurization to stabilize beers.This was done 22 years before pasteurization was applied to milk.And that probably says more about our fascination with beer than anything else. LATTITUDES BRIEFSOctoberFest set for Moose lodgeThe Marathon Women of the Moose Chapter 1027 host an OctoberFest starting at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at the Moose Lodge on First Avenue. There will be music, a menu of German food and lots of beer specials, as well as a costume contest. Cost is $7 per person, with proceeds going to Women of the Moose charities.Green Parrot hosts Buffalo Strange on stageBuffalo Strange, fresh off a tour in Thailand, will bring their eclectic sound mix to Key West Aug. 2627. They play at 10 p.m. both nights at The Green Parrot, 601 Whitehead St. The Tampa-based group has played at many festivals, including the Harvest Fest, Magnolia Fest, Uphonia, Down on the Farm 3 and Chipola Music Fest. Their musical style mixes rock, reggae, jazz with folk even funk. One reviewer wrote of their performance: Once you have been to a Buffalo Strange show, you will never be the same.Doo-wop comingThe Green Parrot plays host to the oldies but goodies crowd Sunday, Aug. 28 starting at 5:30 p.m. Joey Dale and The Gigolos will be singing the doo-wop hits, including songs recorded by the Deprees, The Skyliners, The Coasters and others that climbed the charts big time in the 1950s. Doo Wop legend Jimmy Gallagher, lead singer of The Passions, will join Dale on stage for some special songs. The Passions was a well-known doo wop group in the heyday s and s. As a bit of music trivia, when Gallaghers demo of Just to Be with You was first delivered to Audicon Records, Gallagher was backed by a duo of studio singers called The Cousins. The Cousins were Paul Simon and Carol King. Green Parrot promoters encourage doo wop fans to wear their favorite bouffant, duck tail, bowling shirt, leather jacket or poodle skirt and head to 601 Whitehead St. Sunday evening.

Now in its 22nd season, the Keys Chorale was introduced into Florida Keys Community Colleges curriculum in January 1990, and now numbers 70 to 100 singers in full season. Its makeup represents multifaceted talents, backgrounds and interests. In addition to being Monroe Countys only major choral ensemble, the Keys Chorale has been a training ground for young musicians, said the groups artistic director, Dean Walters.

The only requirement to join, Walters said: Be able to sing on pitch and to be able to sing a separate part in four-part harmony. The chorales annual holiday concert on Dec. 9 will feature Gloria by Vivaldi, along with holiday favorites. The spring concert next April is titled Five Centuries of Music from the s. Rehearsals begin at 7 p.m. Tuesday. For more information, call Walters at 745-1409.
