Sheriffs Office Col. Rick Ramsay, the No. 2 at the agency, says hes going to file paperwork Monday with the Supervisor of Elections Office to run. He joins State Attorneys Office investigator Edwin Bill Grove III, who had already filed initial paperwork months ago. Both are Republicans. The primary is next Aug. 14. The general election is Nov. 6, 2012. Peryam, elected in 2008 to succeed Rick Roth, says one four-year term as sheriff is enough to cap a 35-year law-enforcement career, most of which has been spent in the Keys. Now hes making plans to enjoy his HarleyDavidson and family more when he steps down in January 2013. Im still going to be young and enjoy it, he said. I certainly want to take a nice long trip on my Harley. My wife and I love to go camping, so were going to go camping. And my mother is turning 94 next year. I need to spend some time with her [in Michigan], maybe spend summers there. He said hes endorsing Ramsay to succeed him. The Sheriffs Office has a budget of about $43 million and 565 employees, so whoever takes over has a huge job. Both Ramsay and Grove say theyre up to it. I started in road patrol in 1987 in Marathon, worked as a jail captain, commander, SWAT, dive, Ramsay said. With me, you know what youre getting. Two sheriffs had the confidence in me to be their No. 2. He already has an agenda: Get all Sheriffs Office staffers more involved in their communities, more crime prevention, and increase the agencys reliance on green technology.I want to enhance community partnerships, RamsaySheriff declines to seek another term, two already crafting their messagesBy LARRY KAHNlkahn@keynoter.comLAW ENFORCEMENTCandidates starting to fileTwo judges among those in the runningBy LARRY KAHNlkahn@keynoter.comELECTION 2012 Jara shifts work time to MarathonWith an eye to perhaps moving more administrators from Key West to Marathon High School, in the coming weeks Superintendent Jesus Jara will begin spending two days a week working out of the Middle Keys. In Marathon, only about half the space at the middle/high school on Sombrero Beach Road is used, with the third floor largely empty. Earlier in the year when the Monroe County School District was making drastic budget cuts, some floated the idea of vacating the administrative complex on Trumbo Point in Key West, selling the waterfront-adjacent property and relocating central staff to unused space in Marathon 50 miles away.I know there has been a lot of talk in the community about moving the central office to Marathon, Jara said Friday. Weve got to take small steps and see how it works.The first of those small steps is Jara and administra-More senior administrators could followBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSRelief coming for tow charges?Key West Mayor Craig Cates plans to try yet again to pass into law an ordinance capping the price of non-consensual tows from private property in the city at $100. The measure was postponed from Tuesdays City Commission meeting at the behest of Commissioner Clayton Lopez, who plans to meet next week with representatives from the tow companies that operate in the Southernmost City. Non-consensual towing in Key West takes place either at the order of police or other city staff, and the company is selected from a rotation list; or at the order of private property owners. City-ordered tows cost $135 at a minimum, while theres no set cap on what can be charged for private tows. Because of that, many people have complained of bills in the hundreds of dollars including costs such as permile fees, processing feesCompanies sign off on cap of $100By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTFeds mum on Reckwerdt investigationFederal officials remained mum on Friday following a Thursday raid on Islamorada Mayor Michael Reckwerdts sprawling waterfront marina business search warrants in hand in an apparent probe into the mayors finances.Internal Revenue Service Special Agent Ellie Michaud, a spokeswoman with the IRSCID, would only say that the IRS Criminal Investigation Division is here on official business and that the agency is taking the lead in the investigation. Another agent on the scene said they were executing an IRS search warrant.Independent sources indicate the IRS is investigating Reckwerdt for not filing tax returns for the past five years or so for Robbies Marina at mile marker 77.5 bayside on Lower Matecumbe Key.Agents haul off crates of finance recordsROBBIES MARINA RAIDKeynoter Staff Photo by DAVID GOODHUEFederal agents seize records Thursday at Robbies Marina, owned by Islamorada Mayor Michael Reckwerdt.See Reckwerdt,2ASee Towing,2ASee Schools,3ASee Candidates,2ASee Sheriff,2A
Police in Key West have identified several people of interest related to the Oct. 28 homicide of Jonathan Alvarado, 32, but are still reaching out to the public for information that could help solve the grisly slaying.Alvarados body was found underneath a truck at 1019 Grinnell St.; although the Monroe County Medical Examiners Office hasnt finalized a report, he appears to have died from head trauma inflicted by a large rock found at the scene, police said.Thursday, police spokeswoman Alyson Crean said in a prepared statement that anyone who was in the area of Wing Masters or Dons Place [Oct. 28] between the hours of 3:30 and 5 a.m. should contact authorities. Crean explained what a person of interest is: It means that there are people that are not just giving background information, but that have the possibility of perhaps being involved in the situation. One of the things behind this is to make sure we have talked to everybody. [Detectives] want to make sure theyve completely covered everything. Alvarado is originally from Venezuela and worked as a server at La Trattoria Beachside. Anyone with information about his death should call Sgt. Pablo Rodriguez at 809-1017 or Crime Stoppers of the Florida Keys at (800) 346TIPS. This is the second homicide in Key West this year and the third in the Keys. On Sept. 2, Carl Eric Johanson, 66, was found in his apartment at the Henry Haskins Senior Citizen Plaza on Kennedy Drive, bound with his throat slashed. Tod Geofrey Helfrich, 46, is the prime suspect although he has not been charged with murder. Helfrich is being held at the Monroe County Detention Center on charges of probation violation and grand theft related to him being caught in Orlando with Johansons car, cell phone and credit card. Further charges are awaiting the completion of forensic analysis by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The other incident, a murder-suicide, took place in May on Little Torch Key. Detectives concluded that Glen Tucker, 80, killed his wheelchair-bound wife Joan, 77, before turning a gun on himself. and other add-ons. Since Tuesdays postponement, Cates has received a letter supporting his proposal signed by representatives of five towing companies; noticeably absent is support from Arnolds Towing, the largest tow company in town, operating since 1978.They purposefully never even asked me, owner Doris Arnold told the Keynoter Ive decided I can play their game, so now Im for it, too. I think what theyve done is wrong but Ill deal with it.I dont know how much credence I give to that letter, Lopez said Friday, because I know theres a lot of infighting with the tow companies themselves.Arnold concurred, and said with her support came the expectation that all the tow companies would comply with a changed ordinance and be held accountable for violations.I will support it, she said, as long as Mayor Cates takes it upon himself to make sure everyone follows the rules. Im not going anywhere. Whatever they come up with, Ill deal with it.Still, she said, Ive done everything I can. We put up highly visible signs [on private lots] all over town, and we didnt have to; our minimum is in line with the city and countys price, and it doesnt have to be. Cates will bring the ordinance back on Nov. 16, at a City Commission meeting set to begin at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street. Lopez said hes going into his meeting with the tow companies with an open mind and as neutral as I can possibly be. Hopefully well get it passed next time, Cates said. I dont see any reason not to approve it when the majority of the towing companies want it passed, plus the majority of the citizens want to see this passed. Everyone except Arnolds is on board. They have the most lots to patrol, so they have the most to lose.Friday, Christine Rodriguez from Alexs Auto Wrecking sent Cates an email asking for a permit for a peaceful demonstration from 9 to 11 tonight in front of the Whitehead Street post office, the site of some of the most egregious tow complaints.This rally is planned by the towing companies that are in support of the proposed non-consent towing ordinance.., she wrote. We wish to show our absolute and undeniable disgust for predatory towing and our future plans for strong regulation and harmonious activities within our industry for and between the consumer, tourists and our companies.

The Fairbanks (Alaska) Daily News-Miner reports Vik Livingston of Seattle had been charged with felony assault in Fairbanks. Charges were reduced to misdemeanor counts as part of the agreement. The plea deal was announced Monday. In June 2010, Livingston was taking part in the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge from Key West to Homer, Alaska. She fell asleep 50 miles south of Fairbanks on the Parks Highway and struck the bicyclists on the highway shoulder. Prosecutors say the Alaska Department of Corrections will decide whether Livingston will be jailed or monitored electronically in Seattle. The Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge planned to register 1,000 Harley-Davidson riders who would travel through a series of checkpoints to reach Homer. In reality, about 700 participated. The winner was to get $500,000 in Alaskan gold.

Most of our crimes are crimes of opportunity.Grove says the Sheriffs Office is a strong agency but that it needs changes at the top, not only at sheriff. I think Bob did a good job as sheriff. Hes a super guy, a real nice guy, Grove said. But I think its been run by the same people for the last 12 to 16 years and there needs to be a shakeup at the top. I think the line deputies who serve day to day are doing a great job, but the administration is a protect yourselfsystem. The administrations of Bob and Rick were the same. He also wants to work on retention. The county is paying these deputies to train them and get them up to speed, then we lose them to other counties.

He said were administratively fat ... with less officers on the road.Campaign startsFrom Sheriff,1Apowerful House Foreign Affairs Committee.Ros Lehtinen, a Republican who lives in Miami but represents the Keys as part of District 18, has been in Congress since 1990. Peixoto, no party affiliation, says thats too long for anyone to serve. Also filing in this race is Miami Republican Marcus Rivchin Jr.Previously, State Attorney Dennis Ward had filed to seek a second four-year term, and has a challenger in former Assistant State Attorney Catherine Vogel, who was the top assistant under Wards predecessor, Mark Kohl. Both Ward and Vogel are Democrats.Also, Deputy Elections Supervisor Joyce Griffin looks to replace her boss, Harry Sawyer, whos retiring after serving since 1988. Challenging the Democrat for the four-year seat is Republic Barry Gibson, owner of a sunglass store who just completed a four-year term on the Key West City Commission. And state Rep. Ron Saunders, a Democrat, filed for another two-year term. He first served House District 120 from 1986 to 1994, then returned in 2006 and has been re-elected each two years since. This would be his last term due to term limits.Races under wayFrom Candidates,1AOn hand with IRS agents on portions of the ropedoff property were agents with the FBI and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. They carted off several crates that apparently held financial records.The ATF apparently was on hand because Reckwerdt is known to have a collection of guns. Reckwerdt declined comment, referring questions to his attorney Jay Hershoff, who didnt return a call for comment. Around a dozen federal agents had descended on Robbies, which has a restaurant, boat rentals, snorkel trips and more. Its also the states boat launch for access to Indian Key State Park.Reckwerdt was elected to the Islamorada Village Council in 2004 and re-elected in 2006, 2008 and 2010. He couldnt be reached for comment.Records seizedFrom Reckwerdt,1A RECKWERDTAll on board? Rare election forsmall cityThe city of Layton has its first contested election since 2006 on Tuesday. William Murchie is challenging four-term incumbent John Cromartie for Seat 1 on the five-member City Council.This isnt exactly a bigcity election; Layton has only around 175 residents or about 35 residents per council member. Murchie joked the only campaigning hes done is at the local post office or when he sees neighbors out walking their dog.Everybody pretty much knows everybody here. Its like a small subdivision more than a city, he said. Thats the nice thing about small towns. 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. I think itll probably be a fairly close election and Ive been here full-time for three or four years. Itll be interesting to see, he said. Cromartie, 58, is a commercial fisherman whos been a Layton resident since 1987. Hes run unopposed for the council four times starting in 2003. Council members serve two years. I represent the majority of the people of Layton, who have never been to a council meeting and will never go to one, he said. The people who know me and know what Im about know that I will be there to protect their personal property rights, and their rights to the pursuit of happiness.William Dilley (Seat 3) and Philip Porter (Seat 5) were elected unopposed this year. Mayor Norman Anderson, Clark Snow (Seat 2) and Katie Scott (Seat 4) will be up for reelection in 2012.According to City Clerk Mimi Young, the 2006 election cost Layton $4,700 to run through Monroe County Supervisor of Elections office. She said its unclear what this years election will cost. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at City Hall.Cromartie has challenger in MurchieBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comLAYTONWorthington in line for mayorIt appears that Marathon City Councilman Pete Worthingtons final year on the dais will be spent with gavel in hand. Tuesday, the council is set to choose who will hold the ceremonial mayorship for the next calendar year, and Worthington appears to be the choice among his colleagues. Hes finishing a three-term run, which means he has to sit out at least one year before running for the council again. I think [Mayor Ginger Snead has] done a good job the last couple years, but Id accept it. Ive been on the council eight years [he had previously served two years and then sat out before running again] and been mayor one year. I guess well see how it goes down, Worthington said. Snead did not return a call for comment. Whomever ends up being selected, it appears it wont be Snead, whos held the position the past two years. Other council members said they feel the title should be passed along each year.Its time to pass it on. Any more than [two straight years] and its time to go to an elected mayor. Its an honorary position and everyone should have a shot, Councilman Mike Cinque said.I think Pete has probably got the support to be mayor this year. Hes going on eight years in there, so if he has the votes, Ill support him and let him go out as the mayor, he said. Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay shared Cinques sentiment about passing the gavel each year.I am certainly looking at who I think can best fill the position of mayor, which is important inasmuch as its ceremonial. I think personally, its a position that should rotate between the council. It shouldnt be sought after as anything other than an honor and a means of rewarding the council people whove been elected, he said.Councilman Richard Keating said he hasnt decided anything other than that hes not interested in the titleI dont know realistically that I have the time for it. Its honorary but it does consume a lot more time from an organizational standpoint. I just dont have that desire, said Keating, a commercial fisherman.The council is scheduled to meet at 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center.Organizational meeting set Tuesday nightBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONCops look for help in homicideNo arrests in slaying of AlvaradoBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Subscriptions 743-5551
Despite support from City Manager Jim Scholl, the Key West Chamber of Commerce and the cruise-ship industry, the City Commission on Tuesday put the kibosh on plans to fund a study to look at the feasibility of widening the citys shipping channel to allow for larger cruise ships. The 6-1 vote, spurred on by seemingly one-sided public opinion against the widening, was ostensibly against a nonbinding referendum proposed by Scholl to gauge resident support of the dredging. Commissioner Mark Rossi was the lone vote in favor. I think for now its over and done with, Mayor Craig Cates told the Keynoter Hopefully they got the message. Scholl, Cates said, can bring his recommendations but when the commission doesnt want it and the public doesnt want it, its over.As far as Im concerned, Commissioner Jimmy Weekley said, we voted to deny. It seems to me if I was in [the supporters] shoes, Id say it was a pretty strong view that the majority of the commission doesnt want the study.The study is projected to cost $5.5 million, half of which would come from the federal government. The city would be charged with financing the other half, be it through city money or private commitments.Weekley addressed the chance that Scholl, who couldnt be reached for comment, would rally private support and financial commitments to fund the citys half: He cant come back with any commitments that arent going to damage the environment. Thats my biggest concern, not financing.The operating plan was to extend Cut B of the channel from 300 feet to 450 feet; that would cost an estimated $36 million. The actual dredging would be in violation of legislation that established the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Scholl also drew criticism from the dais about the wording of the referendum, which focused on facilitating safe navigation. It would have been on the Jan. 31 presidential primary ballot. I want to make something perfectly clear, Commissioner Tony Yaniz said. I will vote no on widening the channel period forever. If its that important, put it to a referendum. But a referendum has to have a level playing field. He called the wording vague and ambiguous at best. That is not a level playing field. One that is done during a primary ... is not a level playing field. Commissioner Teri Johnston said that moving forward with a study, even if it wasnt a commitment to actually dredge, conveyed the wrong message. We have talked about this and talked about this and talked about this. There is a long-term cost. You would only do a study if you intend to dredge. With that, she made the motion to deny, seconded by Weekley.

Big Pine KeyFL.Reg.Mover # IM26 US DOT # 966624FL State awarding room quotaThe city of Marathon is likely getting a reward for moving aggressively in constructing its sewer system. Marathons $122 million sewer, stormwater and road repaving project is scheduled for completion in March, and city officials could go before the state Cabinet in December to give their required annual update on progress. However, even if that meeting doesnt happen, the Department of Economic Opportunity recommends Marathon be awarded at least 100 transient unit allocations, or permit allocations for hotel rooms.Its for the citys unprecedented progress in constructing central sewers, department Executive Director Doug Darling wrote in an Oct. 31 letter to Gov. Rick Scott and the rest of the Cabinet.In addition to those 100 allocations, another 100 could be realized from borrowing forward from the citys future allocations, the letter says. City Manager Roger Hernstadt said the allocations are a precious resource that would allow the city an opportunity to spark the local economy by building new hotels or redeveloping existing ones. While its somewhat of an extraordinary action by the state, it recognizes all the hard work that all of the prior city councils and prior staff have done to move Marathon forward, he said. One such project that could benefit from the 100 allocation is the recently closed Crystal Bay Resort. Owner Marvin Rappaport closed the 26-unit property on the bayside of U.S. 1 near mile marker 50 in September hopes of turning it into a 100room Marriot Residence Inn.Another is a potential Hampton Inn in Old Town on bayside property owned by Roger Masters. The city had previously issued a development agreement to former property owner Peter Rosasco, the citys finance director.Masters said its for 80 rooms, a restaurant, retail space and marina. He owns just 46 of the necessary 80 transient allocations to build the project. We are planning to move forward with [the hotel] and thats an area we need to resolve to move forward. We expect to work with the city however we can, Masters said.City Planning Director George Garrett said the city, like the county, has a moratorium in place on building transient units. There are several developments pending in Marathon, and all would have to use existing permitted units.Hernstadt said the city would worry about doling out the new allocations after the state officially awards them.If were successful in getting new transient units, then we begin the second phase, which is to put in place policies under which they can be allocated. The second phase would happen after we get through the entire process with the state, he said. Hurricane evacuation models are a major factor in the states oversight of Keys development. But the award of transient unit allocations to Marathon apparently will have little impact on the states models.County Growth Management Director Christine Hurley wrote in an e-mail to several county officials that the state models dont consider transient units because those are the first to be evacuated. Hernstadt agreed.Rewards for sewer work are much in demandBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONChannel widening looks dead in waterNo referendum and no study, commission saysBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Key West city staff coordinates about 350 cruise-ship visits each year,amounting to around 800,000 passenger disembarkations into Old Town.The trend in the Caribbean market is toward larger ships,many of which that are now in service or planned cannot navigate into Key West. tive assistant Sandy Shaw spending Wednesdays and Thursdays at a third-floor office thats now being outfitted with phone lines.

Presented Tuesday with a tentative plan for how to ease congestion on Key West streets, the City Commission is now awaiting a final report from a firm contracted to study traffic flow before making any changes. In the next two weeks, representatives of Fort Lauderdale-based Calvin, Giordano and Associates will present commissioners with their final findings, including specific recommendations on how cars, buses, tour trains and trolleys, delivery vehicles, mopeds, bicycles and pedestrians can better share the road. Calvin, Giordanos Jeff Maxwell told commissioners that minor changes to traffic signal timing and the addition of video detectors would significantly improve flow.Everybody understands Key West streets are congested, he said, and thats really no surprise to find that out as part of this traffic study. What was surprising was how effectively we could alleviate that congestion, and how cost effectively we think we could alleviate that congestion.With those simple changes, we were able to realize dramatic improvements all across the board, all across the city. Those kind of changes are relatively inexpensive.He didnt give an estimated cost but Mayor Craig Cates said with delivery of the final report, city staff would set to work analyzing the findings and costing out potential fixes. As soon as that gets in, Cates said, well try to get the expense of what it would cost and bring it before the commission to see if we want to move forward. It seems like a no-brainer so well probably go forward. Commissioner Jimmy Weekley, whose District I comprises the majority of Old Town, echoed that: Why spend the money on doing something if youre not going to at least move forward with some of the recommendations? In June, commissioners approved spending $250,000 to conduct the study and solicited competitive bids, resulting in the selection of Calvin, Giordano.Maxwell said the study focused on 15 primary corridors and 25 intersections. Data collected includes travel time runs, 24-hour counts, speed counts, turning movement counts, pedestrian characteristics, parking inventories, parking violations and characteristics, roadway characteristics, sound levels, cruise ship data and future land growth projections.He also presented priorities as gleaned from surveys of Key West residents. For the most part, Maxwell said, the residents felt very strongly about providing improved pedestrian and bicycle facilities; providing an accommodating atmosphere for tourism; they preferred new off-street parking rather than on-street parking; and they preferred to limit the number of cruise ship disembarkations. Maxwell identified failing corridors on Eaton Street, Palm and Truman avenues, North Roosevelt Boulevard and First, Bertha, Whitehead and Duval streets. He pegged failing intersections at North Roosevelt and U.S. 1, Palm Avenue and North Roosevelt, and the intersection of Truman Avenue with Simonton, Duval and Whitehead streets, and at Southard and Whitehead streets. You can see some dramatic improvements in average speed and travel time by adjusting signal timing and coordination.

The vessel had docked behind the Fishbusterz fish house for a couple of days. Crew members told Detective Manny Cuervo that Windhaus went to the Hogfish for dinner, then stayed to play pool and have a few drinks. The captain told Cuervo he went to check on Windhaus at 9:30 p.m. and encouraged him to return to the boat. He didnt. At 8 a.m., a crew member went on deck, looked into the water and saw Windhaus floating face up, dead, between the steel-hulled boat and concrete dock. Cuervo said it appears he may have fallen while attempting to climb aboard the vessel. An autopsy is planned. KEYSNET.COM
The Federal Emergency Management Agency has given tentative approval to Monroe Countys plan to amend the long-derided downstairs-enclosure inspection program. In an Oct. 14 letter to county Growth Management Director Christine Hurley, FEMAMitigation Division Director Brad Loar said the agency would support the countys certificate of compliance program. It would replace the current program that subjects property owners to enclosure inspections when applying for a building permit in a separate area of their home. Those types of inspections were eliminated when Gov. Rick Scott signed House Bill 407, which bans them, into law in June. Former Lower Keys resident John November drafted the bill, which takes effect this coming June 1. Enclosure inspections are a local requirement of FEMAs program to find and remove enclosures below the floodplain or built illegally. Theyre key to the county remaining in FEMAs National Flood Insurance Program, which insures almost all Keys properties. According to the county, 2,619 of 5,686 properties in the inspection program, all with National Flood Insurance Program insurance, have been inspected. Based on what was discovered, they were either found to be in compliance with code or forced to come into compliance. Still, that leaves 3,067 properties to go.Under the new compliance program, property owners can request an inspection, even if theyve already had one in the past.If youre good to go, youll have a certificate and have [a record] in your chain of title. When you go to sell your house, theyll now know ... you can have what you have, Hurley said. Even though there is no requirement to request an inspection, she said county staff began working with FEMAon the new program once HB 407 was approved. County officials say the county must now amend its code to allow for the new certificate-of-compliance provision. The County Commission is expected to discuss the change at its Nov. 16 meeting at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center in Key Largo. After two crash landings the past week at Key West International Airport, Monroe County Airports Director Peter Horton said the most pressing issue now at the airfield is repairing the safety overrun credited with sparing the aircraft occupants from serious injury. The $2.5 million, 600-foot runway extension was funded by the Federal Aviation Administration as part of a larger $7.5 million safety upgrade. The overrun is essentially a sloped gravel surface, comprising 2,200 composite blocks, called Engineered Materials Arresting Systems, designed to slow down planes on impact. When you look at the people that were involved in the three incidents, Horton said, I think its pretty safe to say they escaped serious injury or worse because of the FAAs funding. In addition to the two crash landings the past week, on Sept. 16, the pilot of a small Rockwell Commander reported power failure on take-off and skidded into the composite blocks. Now Horton is working to have the safety overrun repaired, replacing the damaged blocks. Itll be very expensive, he said, but the cost can be recouped through aircraft and pilot insurance, or through a $30,000 annual insurance policy held by the county specifically for the overrun. Ateam from manufacturer ESCO will travel to Key West Monday to assess the damage, Horton said. Just after noon Thursday, a twin-engine Cessna Citation 550 carrying five people skidded off the runway on mangled landing gear after the brakes failed, according to statements made by the pilot and co-pilot to investigators with the FAA and National Transportation Safety Board. That incident involved a private flight originating from Fort Lauderdale piloted by Jose Batista and co-piloted by Frederico Machado, both of South Florida. Passengers were Paula Carriero of Fort Lauderdale, and Fred Davis and William Daughenbaugh, both from New Jersey. Staff from the two federal organizations were already on the ground in Key West looking into a similar event on Monday when another private plane, a Gulfstream 150, failed to brake upon landing at 7:45 p.m.That crash landing involved a jet carrying Rick Hendrick, owner of NASCARs Hendrick Motorsports, and his wife, Linda, along with a pilot and co-pilot.The group was treated and released from Lower Keys Medical Center on Stock Island. According to a Nov. 2, ESPN report, Rick Hendrick suffered four broken ribs and a broken shoulder and was readmitted to a hospital in Charlotte, N.C. The Gulfstream is registered to NASCAR five-time champion Jimmie Johnson, who drives for Hendrick Motorsports.

On this day, our community (along with more than 1 million Americans and more than 7,500 communities nationwide) celebrated and recognized the importance of after-school programs that keep kids safe, inspire them to learn and help working families. The rain stopped; the weather was great and the turnout of children and their parents was fantastic. We would particularly like to thank the following for making this event special: Centennial Bank for the wonderful hotdogs and hamburgers, the Key West Fire Department, Florida Keys Mosquito Control District, Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority, Lori Neil of Girl Scout Troop 315 and the Early Learning Coalition of MiamiDade/Monroe. Also, Ryan Schmitt for his balloon animals and Kat Maguire for her face painting. We would also like to thank Mayor Craig Cates and his wife Cheryl Cates, Key West City Commissioner Tony Yaniz and State Attorney Dennis Ward for attending the event. Aspecial thank you to the dedicated staff of the Boys and Girls Club and Wesley House Family Services for organizing and hosting this wonderful event.

Linda Mixon and Sally Crawford, Kim Romano, Centennial Bank, Patty Ivey and everyone involved that had a hand in ensuring that teen women were able to participate in the conference. I would say that the various topics discussed throughout the day proved informative, educational and valuable in positioning our teen women to make informed choices about the elements for a healthy relationship free of violence, support for each other as young women and being very mindful that your behaviors and actions today may impact unfavorably on your tomorrow. Thanks to everyone for their investment in our teen women. The Domestic Abuse Shelter is truly grateful for the collective efforts of all involved. Venita Garvin Valdez, CEO Domestic Abuse ShelterOn the village,FWCWe received our tax bill for Islamorada. I would like to give the Village Council a round of applause. Even in this very bad economy, the village has been able to keep our taxes low and not diminish our quality of life. Onto the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission: It does a fantastic job patrolling our waters, with minimal resources, unfortunately. My only point of contention is that they never respond to the marine Channel 16. I am aware that you can call and now Tweet any issues. That being said, if they are on patrol, the boats should monitor Channel 16. Many times boaters have called and I have never heard them respond, even when I see them on the reef. That being said, I want to reiterate that the FWC does a great job in the Keys.

Also, we would like to thank Key Colony Beach Mayor Ron Sutton and his City Commission for allowing us to use a portion of City Hall to hold our Wilma the Witch fundraiser on Oct. 24. With great success, we were able to raise almost $1,500 at this event.

Iris Coe MarathonHis heart might be in right place, but state senators proposed bill for animal shelters misses the markOne good way to start an argument is to bring up the topic of unwanted pets and what to do about the problem. Spaying or neutering helps reduce the number of unwanted animals. But every year shelters are forced to euthanize thousands of animals that arent adopted. Even no-kill shelters find the costs of care and feeding a constant strain on donors and volunteers. By one estimate, Floridas taxpayer-subsidized animal shelters spend upwards of $30 million a year euthanizing unwanted pets. That raises the hackles of animal lovers and even the hardened skinflint who argues against using tax dollars to support animal shelters. Well, state Sen. Mike Bennett (R-Bradenton) must have a lot of pet lovers in his district because he introduced legislation this week that would prevent killing animals in any shelter receiving taxpayer dollars. Instead, his bill (SB 818) would mandate transfer of unwanted strays to nonprofit no-kill animal rescue organizations. This, he argues, would not only prevent the killing of animals, but would save taxpayer dollars by transferring the cost of keeping the animals to the nonprofit sector. Were not sure how he calculates unintended consequences, but were pretty sure his idea passes the buck. And we doubt it will trigger ringing endorsements from animal-rescue volunteers already hardpressed to meet their expenses of care and feeding for abandoned animals. There are three shelter operations in the Keys. Collectively, theyre getting just more than $1 million a year in county funding support. All three need private donations to supplement their programs. All offer adoption programs, spay and neuter programs, and raise money to help cover costs not covered by county subsidies. Its hard to see how Bennetts proposed legislation solves anything by trying to pass along the funding problem to good-hearted donors who happen to be pet lovers. Afar better idea was floated this week by Rep. Scott Randolph (D-Orlando), who has prefiled a bill that would increase spending on low-cost spay and neuter programs around the state. The only way to really curb the proliferation of unwanted animals is to make sure strays are not adding to the problem. Randolphs bill would direct fines from violations of animal control ordinances to expand spay and neuter programs already in place. Getting violators to help fund low-cost spay and neuter programs strikes us as a better and certainly more humane way to tackle this vexing problem. In the meantime, if you can adopt an abandoned cat or dog, or if you can donate to one of the three nonprofit shelters here in the Keys, youll be glad you did:Upper Keys: www.myvetonline.com.Middle and lower Keys: www.safeharborrescue.com.Key West: www.fkspca.org.

ClearChannel slashes jobs in MonroeRadio in the Keys just got a lot less local.Clear Channel Communications, which owns five radio stations in the county, let go of four of its on-air personalities this week and will fill their time slots with programming from other markets.Clear Channel stations broadcast from two locations in the Keys, Key West and Tavernier. The company, the largest radio station operator in the country, employs about 25 people in Monroe County. The layoffs are part of an overall strategy Clear Channel announced recently for its regional markets, like the Keys. The new direction will be to air a mix of local programming and programming broadcast locally, but piped in from other areas of the country, said Sherri Sanchez, Clear Channel regional marketing manager for the Keys, Sarasota, Punta Gorda and Melbourne. Sanchez would not say who got the ax this week, but a source familiar with the company said D.J. Dave Levy, K.C. Stuart, Rudy and Bill Bravo were let go this week. Levy, 43, confirmed he was among those laid off from WFKX 103.1-FM and said he was caught off guard. I didnt see it coming. They slashed jobs all over the country, and my name and number were up, he said. Levy had worked for Clear Channel for about 15 years. He most recently worked the mid-day shift from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Although there are more than 20 radio stations broadcasting in the Keys, Clear Channels five stations have the largest reach. The Hobee in the Afternoon show, which broadcasts Keyswide from Key West weekdays from 2 to 7 p.m., will be one of the few remaining local programs left. The show airs on WFKZ 103.1-FM in the Upper Keys and WAIL99.5FM in the Lower Keys. The Paul & Young Ron Show, a longtime South Florida morning program that began airing in the Keys in 2009, will also continue to be broadcast on 103.1 and 99.5. Stuart, who also confirmed he was laid off Tuesday, started working the morning shift 22 years ago at 103.1. Clear Channel bought its Keys stations in the late 1990s. Stuart, who moved from 103.1 to 96.9 in 2009 after Paul & Young Ron expanded to the Keys, and to WCTH Thunder Country 100.3 this year after 96.9 was sold, said he wasnt surprised Clear Channel decided to get rid of its local talent. Like a lot of big companies, Clear Channel has a lot of debt that needs to be retired, but the wrong people end up taking it on the chin. Its unfortunate, Stuart said. Clear Channel, based in San Antonia, Texas, is trying to work off about $20 billion in debt. The company has about 850 stations nationwide and 12,000 employees. The company would not say how many local workers would be affected by the layoffs, but Sanchez took exception to characterizing the companys move as getting rid of local programming. I think were getting caught up in the semantics of local programming, said Sanchez, equating the move to local television stations that broadcast mainly national and syndicated programs. She maintains Clear Channel stations will continue to seek local advertisers. Local advertising is our meat and potatoes. Eighty percent of our business is always local, Sanchez said. Sanchez described the layoffs as a reduction in forces to change out some people with others who we feel would do a better job to put the best product on air for our listeners. As technology has progressed, there have been efficiencies. If you want to stay in business, you use these efficiencies, Sanchez said. We werent able to do this 15 years ago. Levy said he is the victim of the economy, not because his show wasnt popular among listeners. This wasnt about performance, he said. Levys not sure what hell do next, but he hopes to be able to stay in the Keys. Obviously. Im going to land somewhere, he said. It would be great if it could be here.Local voices on Keys stations being replacedBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comMEDIAI didnt see it coming.They slashed jobs all over the country,and my name and number were up.Dave Levy,D.J.

(alternatively, from the Florida Keys MLS, Inc.) for the pe riod for the period Oct. 23-29, 2011. 3rd-quarter home sales up 17%Any lingering doubts about the health of the Keys real estate market were removed by third-quarter sales figures just released. The total number of properties sold Keyswide increased 17 percent compared to the same quarter last year. More importantly, the Keysmarket recorded 1,621 sales in the first nine months this year the best year-todate showing since 2006. Acombination of lower prices and attractive mortgage rates are cited as factors, along with signs the Keys market bottomed out sometime last year and is now on the way to recovery. There is clear recognition on the part of buyers that weve passed the bottom and that prices are not going down anymore, said Brian Schmitt, broker at Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real Estate. His words are echoed by Joy Martin of Marr Properties in Key Largo, where third-quarter sales in the Upper Keys jumped 32 percent above levels posted one year ago. Were feeling pretty good about the upcoming season, Martin said. She pointed to historic low interest rates as one factor. And she noted more primary buyers active this year than in recent years, when investment buyers and second-home buyers dominated. Prices in the Upper Keys have also shown moderation in the mix of homes being sold. For the third quarter, the Upper Keysaverage home sold for $413,000, 3 percent better than the same period in 2010. By comparison, homes sold in the Middle Keys, including Marathon, were 17 percent lower than last year. Foreclosures, short sales and what are referred to as distressed sales influence prices, brokers note. Last year, distressed sales represented nearly 23 percent of all sales closed in the third quarter. This year, that ratio has dropped to 7 percent, Schmitt said. The numbers give a measure of how far weve come. Dominique Barrera, incoming president of the Key West Board of Realtors, said the summer months proved busy compared to previous years. We have 23 agents, and everyone reports a brisk summer with a lot of showings, a lot of cash buyers, and we dont usually see that [level] in the summer, Barrera said. Martin said lenders are also revamping their loan programs, even offering incentives to do short sales. Thats a welcome change, she added, when it took so long before for offers to be accepted and buyers to qualify. Now, its much faster and its a win-win for all when that happens. Barrera, with Preferred Properties in Key West, said some of the recent short sales shes seen have been at prices near or at market. We dont see prices going down anymore, she added. Looking ahead to the fourth quarter, most real estate analysts are forecasting strong numbers even though October through December is traditionally the slowest time of the year for home sales. Analyzing data from all three realty boards in the Keys, Coldwell Banker Schmitt tracks pending sales activity by market zone. In the Upper Keys, pending sales hit 569 in the third quarter. Thats 39 percent better than last year. In the Lower Keys, there are 366 pending sales up 26 percent. The Middle Keys have 302 sales pending, which is 19 percent better than last year. And Key West, with 527 pending sales, still dominates the home-sale market, even though its numbers are up by only 10 percent compared to third quarter last year. Schmitt said if you add up the total number of pending sales in the Keys 1,764 thats greater than the total number of homes sold during the first nine months this year. Thats really good news, he said, since pendings should show up as solds in the next quarter. The yearend numbers for Marathon and Lower Keys will be better simply because of those pending sales.Local agents think prices passed bottomKEYS REAL ESTATEKeynoter StaffState leads in non-current mortgagesFlorida had the nations highest rate of non-current mortgage loans in September, according to a report released Tuesday by Jacksonville-based mortgage data firm Lender Processing Services. Nearly 23 percent of mortgages in the state are past due, almost double the national rate of 12.3 percent. In Florida, 14.2 percent of loans are stuck in foreclosure, nearlydouble the rate of the next highest state and triple the national rate. Additionally, another 8.7 percent of Florida mortgages are delinquent on payments. The rate of new problem loans those that were current six months ago but are now seriously delinquent is 2.4 percent in Florida, compared to 1.6 percent nationwide.

Theres not much enthusiasm in being fourth best. But when it comes to the nations worst drivers, maybe its better not to finish first. Florida drivers were ranked fourth worst in the nation, according to a report issued Friday by Car InsuranceComparison.com, a Seattle-based online clearinghouse for car insurance rates and information. The rankings take into account the number of drunk driving arrests, traffic fatalities, and citations issued for failure to obey signals. Louisiana owns the dubious distinction of No. 1 in the nation for bad drivers its motorists having chalked up 49 fatalities per million miles driven. While the Bayou State ranked 41st of the 50 states surveyed in tickets issued and drunk driving arrests, it appears that fatalities carried the most weight in the studys scoring method. The report crunched numbers in five key metrics from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, the National Motorists Association, and Governors Highway Safety Administration: fatalities per million miles driven, number of moving violation tickets issued, drunken driving citations and convictions, number of tickets issued for failure to obey traffic signals, and ranking on careless driving.Taking all five factors into account, Florida scored 183 points, which tied with Texas for third. Still, Car InsuranceComparison.com ranks Florida drivers fourth worst. Company representatives were not immediately available for comment.One noticeable trend in Car InsuranceComparison.coms study: The further south one drives, the worse it gets. The Northeast appeared to have the safest drivers, according to the study, with Rhode Island motorists deemed the safest in the nation, followed by Connecticut and Massachusetts.Meanwhile, the Sunshine State did finish tops (or worst) in a couple of areas: Florida drivers received the most traffic citations of any state, and were nearly the worst in terms of careless drivers (49 of 50).To see the full report, go to CarInsuranceComparison .com .New study takes in fatalities, other factorsON THE ROAD NEWS BRIEFSHabitat seeks partner familyHabitat for Humanity of Key West and the Lower Florida Keys is looking for a new partner family for a home on Big Pine Key.

Rebounding from a season-opening 2-1 defeat the day before at Wellington, the Conchs won, 6-3, led by Devin Mitchell, who scored three goals. Much of the first half was played in the Marathon end, but Dolphin goalkeeper Sammie Bonilla stymied the Conchs with her saves and aggressive style. With superior speed, though, the Conchs eventually put her at a disadvantage. Fifteen minutes into the half, Mitchell, a willowy sophomore, scored on a two-onone break. Moments later, she scored again after faking Bonilla, who was right in front of her. Mitchell then made it 30 as she scored again against a leaping Bonilla. The Dolphins, meanwhile, couldnt get a shot on goal until Taylor Konrath launched a long one over keeper Angela Martin that seemed certain to go in the net. But the ball thudded against the crossbar. Freshman forward Olivia Kennedy and senior midfielder Robyn DeRoche then added goals to give the Conchs a 5-0 halftime lead. Marathon, to the delight of a scattering of visiting fans who sat in lawn chairs, awakened in the second half as Key West coach Scott Paul used his inexperienced players and rested his regulars, who conducted a gabfest on the bench and occasionally pleaded to go back in.

Boats are to race on a 6.5-mile course, featuring both rough and calm water conditions, during the season-ending event acclaimed as the Indianapolis 500 of the offshore powerboat racing circuit. The challenging course is a primary reason for the island citys reputation as one of the worlds premier racing venues. The course layout provides spectators unmatched close-up views of the highspeed action. According to race organizer John Carbonell, boats will be within 50 yards of race fans at the Truman Waterfront grandstand area as they roar into the outer harbor. The Key West World Championship is to kick off with a parade of race boats down Duval Street beginning at 4 p.m. Sunday. Races are scheduled for Wednesday and Nov. 11 and 13. Three races are scheduled per day, each featuring boats from multiple classes.

Coach Sheryl Yost said her comeback kids fell behind big several times, but always found a way to get back in the game. We had some focus problems and a little lack of communication cost us. But the kids had a great season, so Im proud of them, she said. Yost praised the packed house at Island Christian for cheering the Eagles on Wednesday. The crowd was awesome; the gym was packed. Thats the most people Ive seen for a volleyball match. It helps a lot, she said. Yost said co-captain Lauren Montagne was the games most consistent server. She won eight service points in two different sets. Kaylyn Wyatt won 11 straight service points, including the game winner, in the second set.

DeRoche might have challenged Perez had it not been for an off round Tuesday he triple-bogied a par 3 on what Twyman called a windy, long and extremely hard course. He got a little discouraged and the putts werent going in for him but thats golf, Twyman said. DeRoche played in the state tourney for the second consecutive year. Last season, he finished 20th.

They forced a fifth set against top seed Gulliver Prep, but fell short of a title. The Canes defeated St. Brendan in three sets to reach the district final, 2519, 25-21 and 25-21.Raiders too muchFrom Volleyball,1BConchs, Canes qualify for regionalIts on to the regionals for the Key West High School boys and girls cross-country teams and also the Coral Shores High boys team. The Conch boys, with the fourth-fastest average team time (18 minutes, 30 seconds) in school history, finished second out of seven teams at Wednesday afternoons District 15-2Ameet at Tropical Park in Miami. Both the Conch girls and the Coral Shores boys finished fourth. To qualify for next Thursdays 4 p.m. regional meet at Mills Pond Park in Fort Lauderdale, a team had to finish in the top four. Senior Ryan Wagner, who has led the Conch boys in every race this season, finished sixth in the 5K with a personal-best time of 17:39. He trailed five Ransom Everglades runners, including winner Bert Irigoyen, whose time was 17:12. Ransom won the meet with an average time of 17:15. Ransom is a great program and we knew we couldnt run with them, said Key West coach Terence White. We were expecting to finish third behind them and Gulliver, so to get second was a huge accomplishment. Behind Wagner were Aeschton Tomita, who was 10th in a season-best 18:31, followed by Tony Guieb (12th, 18:36), Julian Ramirez (13th in 18:42), Brock Guzman (16th, 19:00), Everett Wagner (17th, 19:03) and Tyler Hancock (19th, 19:22). The latter five all had personal-best times. Sophomore Tristin Milliken was the first Conch girl to finish, using a burst in the last mile to run the 3.1mile course in a personalbest 21:55 for 12th place. She was 17th at the twomile mark, White said. She knew she had to be in the top 13 to qualify as an individual if the team was lower than fourth. Milliken was followed by Liz Czerwinski (18th, 22:33), Marlee Gill (25th, 23:09), Erin Czerwinski (27th, 23:42) and Morgan Nelson (28th, 23:48). The Key West girls had an average time of 23:02, seventh-best in school history. Carrollton won with an average time of 20:37. Steven Chadwick led the Coral Shores boys with an 18th-place finish in 19:08. Strong performances were also turned in by Pablo Gonzalez (20:33). Landon Brooks (20:46), John Perrotti (20:50), Timothy Holt (21:22), Mathew Holt (24:07) and John Mulkeen (24:52). The Hurricane girls finished sixth with an average time of 26:58. They were led by Shanice Mills-Taylor, whose time of 22:59 was good for 24th place. Next were Anouk Bellion (25:04), Aimee Erickson (28:26), Monica Comacho (29:00) and Kyia Herlth (29:27). Had the team still had Joanna McCoy, it might have qualified for the regional meet. McCoy, now at Gulliver Prep, won the race in 19:01.The next stop in postseason is LauderdalePREP CROSS COUNTRYBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter Contributor Key Largo Bridge run is next weekendTime is running out to register for the third annual Key Largo Bridge Run, a spectacular out-and-back Nov. 12 foot race offering panoramic views of the Upper Keys and the eastern edges of the Florida Everglades.

Published Keynoter November 5, 2011 Dolphin boys to field young rosterThe Marathon High School boys soccer team will be young this season, a change of pace from juniorand senior-laden squads in recent years. The team opens regularseason play Tuesday with a trip to county rival Key West High School at 5 p.m. Coach Jim Murphy said the Dolphinsroster still missing several players with football season ongoing features just one senior, three juniors and two sophomores. We have a young team, but well still be returning six starters, which is good. Alot of my seventh-, eighthand ninth-graders have played together for years in [the American Youth Soccer Organization]. Its a big help because I can tell they know how to work with everyone, he said. Murphy said the Dolphins (3-12-1 last season) will rely on returning players Ricky Ceja, Marco Ceja, Riley Durkin and Ariel Rodriguez to anchor the team. He said all will play as either defenders or midfielders. Theyre giving us upperclassmen leadership and theyll be the guys were depending on, Murphy said. Marathon didnt play any preseason games this year, so Murphy said the team will approach the game against Key West as if its a preseason contest. The Dolphins will be missing players to football for at least another week. After that, we have three district games in a row, so were using it as a way to prepare, he said. The Dolphinsdistrict was realigned this season. Palmer Trinity and Westminster Christian schools remain, but Westwood Christian School, Archimedean Academy and Somerset Academy of Homestead are new. Marathon will host this years district tournament, for which only the top four teams will qualify. It brings more importance to the district games.

I hear there has been a lot of backlash against compact fluorescents because they contain mercury. -Peter Roscoe, Hershey, Pa. Just a decade ago, incandescent bulbs were just about the only game in town, despite their inefficient use of electricity to generate light and their primitive technology that had not changed since being invented some 125 years ago. But now that is all changing fast, with phase-outs of incandescents going on in Australia, Brazil, Venezuela, Switzerland and the European Union, with Argentina, Russia, Canada and the U.S. following suit shortly. The U.S. passed legislation in 2007 to increase the efficiency of light bulbs sold in the U.S. by 25 percent or more by 2014, and then by as much as 60 percent more by 2020. For decades, those concerned with energy savings have been touting the benefits of compact fluorescent lamps, or CFLs, over incandescents. CFLs use only onefifth of the electricity of incandescents to generate the same amount of light, and they can last six to 10 times longer. But CFLscooler color and inability to be dimmed have made them less desirable. Another hindrance to the widespread adoption of CFLs has been their higher cost (though most consumers would save plenty in energy costs over the life of a bulb). Also, CFLs contain mercury, a dangerous neurotoxin that is released when the bulbs break. And once CFLs do burn out they must be disposed of properly to avoid releasing mercury into the environment. Given the issues with CFLs, LEDs (short for lightemitting diodes) are beginning to come on strong. These highly efficient bulbs dont generate heat like incandescents (which helps keep air conditioning costs down) and can last five times longer than CFLs and 40 times longer than incandescents. Tiny LED bulbs have been around for years in specialized applications (such as stadium scoreboards), but lighting engineers got the idea to cluster them and use reflective casings to harness and concentrate their light for residential use. In recognition of the LEDs potential, the U.S. Department of Energy set up a special solid-state (LED) lighting R&D program to hasten the advance of the technology. In comparing the total cost to run three different types of 60-watt equivalent bulbs for 50,000 hours (factoring in the cost of the both bulbs and electricity), the EarthEasy website found that LEDs would cost $95.95, CFLs $159.75 and incandescents $652.50. The 42 incandescent bulbs tested used up to 3,000 kilowatt hours of electricity compared to 700 and 300 for CFLs and LEDs respectively. However, despite the savings, most consumers are loath to spend $35 and up for an LED bulb (even though it will save more than $500 in the long run) when a traditional incandescent bulb right next to it on the shelf costs $1. There are other newer technologies in the works. Seattle-based Vu1 now sells highly efficient bulbs based on its Electron Stimulated Luminescence, or ESL, technology, whereby accelerated electrons stimulate a phosphor coating on the inside of the bulb, making the surface glow. One of Vu1s 65-watt equivalent bulbs retails for under $20 and uses a similar amount of energy as an equivalent CFL. And incandescents arent out of the efficient lighting race altogether just yet. Top bulb makers recently released new versions that use as much as a third less electricity to operate (complying with 2012s new federal standards) and are promising newer models still that will run on even less energy.

Familiar songs from such hits as Showboat, Camelot, Annie and Sound of Music to more contemporary tunes from Phantom of the Opera, Sweeny Todd, Les Miserables and A Chorus Line. Michael Zofchak directs the cast of 50 student singers, drawn from fifth through twelfth grade classes in the Upper Keys. The Kids Theater is a part of the Educational Coalition for Monroe County. Zofchak, a Plantation Key middle school teacher, has performed in numerous plays and has directed student performances including The Stories of Scheherazade, Give My Regards to Broadway, Annie Jr., Beauty and the Beast and last years performance of Les Miserables. The upcoming Years of Broadway show will be performed Nov. 11-13. The Friday andKidsTheatre delivers big song tributeLATTITUDES STAFFTHEATERSee Broadway,7B A play with a purpose unfolds in MarathonMarathon Community Theatre (MCT) will open its 2011-2012 season with a Christmas-themed production, Sleeping Indoors, written by Jim Holt. The Savannah playwright, known for resurrecting the City Lights Theatre Co. in that Georgia coastal city, balances tragicomic story telling. Holts play is set at Christmastime and includes the well-meaning along with the misbegotten. Paul and Nora are a welloff literary couple. Nora who habitually adopts homeless cats, has invited a homeless man named Dwain to dinner. Her husband is not pleased and the tensions grow more intense when Noras flaky sister, Nicole, described as mancrazed, enters the story. Dwain was found under a highway overpass giving his last sip of milk to a starving kitten. He does not drink or take drugs. But he is strange nonetheless, and Paul and Nora decide its their mission to find out just what Dwain is all about. Homelessness plays a role in this play, along with care for stray cats and, should one say, stray people who appear to have lost their way? But have they? Have we? Youll find out when you see Sleeping Indoors, which Marathon Community Theatre describes as done in the tradition of Charles Dickens Christmas. It showcases the gulf between haves and have-nots with humor and insight, and allows us a glimpse of the true meaning of Christmas. Marilyn Tempest directs this production, which stars Michael Wagner, Marianne Benvenuti, Noelle Belden and Kevin Eick. In Savannah, when Holt staged his play for the first time, he invited the theater audience to consider the larger world around them. In the programs, he included information about Savannah area homeless outreach programs and agencies. If moved by the play, the thinking goes, perhaps theatergoers can be moved to care about shelter and services for those less well-off, especially at holiday time? The Marathon Community Theatres production has integrated its own community outreach effort. During the run, information will be available in the theatre lobby for Forgotten Felines, KAIR and Independence Cay. And, the theatres board has decided to make a donation on behalf of the show to each of the Marathon organizations. This is a unique opportunity in the true spirit of Christmas to pay it forward to our friends and neighbors in need, Tempest said. Tickets cost $18 and can be ordered by phone at 743-0994. An Opening Night Party will be held following the Thursday, Nov. 10, show. During the party, Marathon Mayor Ginger Snead, a sponsor of the play, will present donations to the three organizations. Performances are scheduled for Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays beginning Nov. 10 through Dec. 3. No performance on Thanksgiving evening, but there will be a 3 p.m. matinee Sunday, Nov. 27. All evening performances begin promptly at 8 p.m. The Marathon Community Theatre is located at 5101 Overseas Hwy. Box office hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily and Saturdays on show dates.

Others recognize his voice in the bass section of Key Wests United Methodist Church or performances with Key West Pops and the Island Opera Theater. But, for art lovers, Nov. 4-16 will give patrons a chance to recognize Carmichaels wildlife photography at the Frangipani Gallery. An exhibit of his work opens Friday, Nov. 4 and continues through the month. Aformer Army officer with duty in Vietnam, Carmichael later went into financial planning before retiring to Key West where his childhood love of photography brought him to capture the flora and fauna of the Keys, the Everglades and other parts of South Florida. Carmichael says he first discovered photography with his father in Atlanta, Ga., where he took pictures and learned to develop film. During his Army career, which included stints in Vietnam, Carmichael took cameras with him and brought back images of Vietnamese village life and children. Areception for Carmichael will be held 69 p.m. Nov. 4 at Frangipani Gallery, 1102A Duval St. For more information, call 296-0440 or visit: www.frangipani gallery.comCarmichaels work leads exhibit at Frangipani GalleryART Blue Heron at Sunset by wildlife photographer Paul Carmichael Tall tales on the menuThe idea of gathering crime novelists in one place with some wine and good cigars may seem a natural, especially for Key West where the genre has spawned so many imitators. Readers will get the chance to mingle with four novelists on Wednesday, Nov. 9, at the Cork & Stogie, 1218 Duval St, Key West. The authors on tap for this evening of tall tales, tall glasses and some one-upsmanship: Jonathan Woods, author of Bad Juju & Other Tales of Mayhem and Madness; Michael Haskins, author of ChasinThe Wind and Free Range Institution; Mike Dennis, author of Setup on Front Street and The Take, and Jessica Argyle, author of Arrest Me (Before I Write Again). The authors will sign copies of their books. The event begins at 7:30 p.m. For more information, call Dave Bevens at 305517-6419.Crime writers night at Cork & Stogie Nov.9BOOKS Key West author Michael Haskins at the Hemingway Days Literary Event.
