The two fatalities were the first for the Key West race week since 1995, when one racer died and three others were seriously injured. Morgan won two Key West world titles in his career, 1998 and 2001. Event organizer John Carbonell said Morgan had come out of retirement for one last go-around in the Southernmost City.He told me a few days ago that this was his last hurrah. He was a hell of a nice guy and is going to be missed.Carbonell acknowledged the inherent risks involved in powerboat racing: This is a very dangerous sport and the racers know that.

So says County Administrator Roman Gastesi, who says that in addition to wastewater projects, the millions of dollars generated could go to such things as restoring the old Seven Mile Bridge to keep it open to bicyclists, skaters and walkers, and perhaps someday get fishing allowed back on it; renovation of Higgs Beach in Key West; and the purchase and overhaul of the former Rowells Marina at mile marker 104 into a public events site. The tax, approved by voters in 1989 and extended in 2003, is set to sunset in 2018; since the first year of collection in 1990, its raised $344,354,734, the administrator said. Speaking Wednesday at an informal gathering of Keyswide government and utility leaders at the Gato Building in Key West, Gastesi said hed like to see the tax extended for between 15 years and 25 years. This is my initiative, he said, cautioning that the County Commission has yet to approve or event discuss an extension. If it does agree, Gastesi would like it on the Nov. 6, 2012, presidential ballot. Gastesi said the tax brings in around $25 million per year, of which the county keeps $13 million, Key West $6 million, Marathon $2 million, Islamorada $1.5 million, Key Colony Beach $200,000 and Layton $50,000.Wastewater is a big piece of this, Gastesi said, alluding to the $156 million needed to complete the unincorporated countys Lower Keys regional sewer project, but in conversation, we realized theres other quality-of-life projects out there we should tack on. Weve got kind of a wish list forming.That list includes funding the Higgs Beach redevelopment at $5 million; the plan calls for rerouting Atlantic Boulevard to enlarge the beach side of the park, rehabbing a playground, and a litany of other improvements.Gastesi didnt go into specifics on ideas for the former Rowells Marina, a large bayside parcel used for com-Rehabbing the old Seven Mile Bridge, renovating Higgs Beach possibilitiesBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY Missing womans body discoveredAbody thought to be that of missing Orlando woman Nicole Fields whose boyfriend was arrested in the Keys on Nov. 4 after crashing her car off Big Coppitt Key was found Thursday behind an Orlando-area home, according to the Osceola County Sheriffs Office.Steven Louis, 28, the suspect in the case, had been working with investigators and [Thursday] morning they brought him to the Poinciana area in hopes of locating Nicole, the Orlando Sentinel quoted Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Twis Lizasuain as saying.

But these mosquitoes, the kind that transmit dengue fever, would be genetically altered and released into the wild so that, after mating, their offspring would die before reaching adulthood, causing the wild breeding population to decrease dramatically. This approach works at a cellular level to stop larvae from developing to adults, is non-toxic and consequently it does not affect other insects or other species like fish and birds that might eatGoal:Eliminating dengue-carrying Old Town bugsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROLSee Tax,3ASee Missing,2ASee Mosquitoes,3ASee Race,2A Dolphins defeatedThe Lady Dolphins of Marathon High School have a tough go of it against Doral.

Murchie edges incumbent CromartiePolitical newcomer William Murchie ousted four-term incumbent John Cromartie from the Layton City Council Tuesday. Murchie, 62, a semiretired civil engineer, garnered 52 votes in the Seat 1 race to commercial fisherman Cromarties 49 in the small-town election. Of the 181 registered voters, 101, or 55.8 percent, cast ballots. Murchie was scheduled to be sworn in at Thursdays 7 p.m. council meeting. Im happy with it. I thought it would be close. I hope I can do some good for the city, he said. Im going to sit and observe. I have ideas on a few things but well let them go until I see how things work. Murchie said he eventually wants to explore installing speed bumps on South Layton Drive. Its a 15 mph zone and he says drivers routinely reach 40 mph or more. Weve had some people complain. It makes sense to put a structural solution, he said. Cromartie, 58, said he plans to contest three-term incumbent Mayor Norman Anderson in 2012. Anderson was elected mayor in 2006, in the citys last contested election. It was a close election, and I congratulate Mr. Murchie on his win. I will file the necessary papers to run for mayor, as soon as the qualifying period opens next year, he said. The qualifying period for next years election is from noon Aug. 6 until noon Aug. 17. Along with Anderson, Clark Snow (Seat 2) and Katie Scott (Seat 4) will be up for reelection in 2012. William Dilley (Seat 3) and Philip Porter (Seat 5) were elected unopposed this year.Ousted council member looks to 2012 raceBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMeeting at the Gato Building in Key West on Wednesday, representatives of more than a dozen Florida Keys governments and utilities agreed there are ways to save money by collaborating on some services.The cost of employees health insurance appears to be the first target where the group has agreement to proceed.Monroe County Administrator Roman Gastesi organized the meeting with the aim of eliminating duplication of services and finding economies of scale to save money. He dubbed the effort a public service alliance.Over the course of the two-hour discussion, entities that purchase insurance from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida formed a consensus to get back together with their respective policy consultants. The goal: discuss potential discounts through larger group purchases.Gastesi said that among insured employees of Monroe County, the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority and the School District, significant savings could be realized.If we can somehow over the next year or two kind of mesh it together, Gastesi said, youre talking 5,000 people. Its time to sit down and really negotiate or were going to take our business elsewhere. Thats the big picture. Health care is probably the easiest. The county alone has 2,200 people participating in the health insurance program; of those, 1,200 are employees, 340 are retirees and 600 are dependents.In June, the Monroe County Commission approved a three-year deal with Blue Cross and Blue Shield. The switch from Wells Fargo is expected to lower this years estimated county insurance costs from $18.1 million to $14.4 million a savings of $3.7 million; pharmacy benefits for county workers were also changed, netting further savings of $454,000.Marathon City Manager Roger Hernstadt said creating a broader insured pool might be appealing to the insurers, since they could access a larger market share by way of the intergovernmental cooperation.We may be able to use that as a little leverage, he said of group buying, but its also the ability to bring in the others that may not be with Blue Cross and Blue Shield. He suggested sitting down the insurance company consultants and pepper them with questions why it could or couldnt work and whats the downside. Schools Superintendent Jesus Jara said: If everyone is in the room, we can have a frank discussion.Hernstadt labeled the potential health-care initiative as probably one of the easier areas to approach on this sort of thing, but cautioned that in scenarios that would see one agency providing a service to another, such as fleet management, it gets a little more ticklish.Who was representedMonroe County Administrator Roman Gastesi on Wednesday convened the first meeting of his so-called public service alliance,the goal of which is realize taxpayer savings through intergovernmental cooperation.The group,which agreed to meet quarterly,comprised:Jesus Jara,Monroe County School District superintendent.Roger Hernstadt,Marathon city manager.Debbie Frederick,deputy county administrator.Tina Boan,county budget director.Danise Henriquez,county tax collector.Harry Sawyer,county supervisor of elections.Mike Rice,Sheriffs Office bureau chief of the administrative division.Lynn Tejeda,Keys Energy Services chief executive officer.Jim Reynolds,Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority executive director.Scott Newberry,Florida Keys Electric Cooperative chief executive officer.Ron Sutton,Key Colony Beach mayor and administrator.Ed Koconis,Islamorada village manager.Bob Shillinger,chief assistant Monroe County attorney.Karl Borglum,county property appraiser.Michael Doyle,Mosquito Control District director.Kim Gabel,Cooperative Extension Service horticulture agent.Craig Marsten,Key West Fire Department division chief.

Charles Hamilton, 56, was stopped in Chenoa, Ill., for a traffic offense at 7:31 a.m. Sunday by Illinois State Police on Interstate 55. Although the initial stop stemmed from an alleged drivers license offense, the trooper detected indications of potential criminal activity and used his police dog to search the pickup, state police District 6 Capt.

He loved boat racing and he loved going fast. He did what he loved; its just so unfortunate. Hell be sorely missed. Morgan worked the boat throttle while Tillman piloted the boat. Mike Kenagy, executive director of the Lake West Chamber of Commerce in Missouri, said its a sad day for the lake community, which he said Morgan helped turn into a premier racing destination, highlighted by a bustling summer tourist season. He was just a great allaround guy and were sure going to miss him, Kengay said. He was great community-wise and also as a professional racer. The Lake of the Ozarks Shootout, he said, would bring tens of thousands of spectators to the area. Bob and J.T. were an integral part of that allure and bringing out the fans. It was always a highlight of the Shootout when Bob would race. He loved getting out there and meeting the people, talking about racing.

Most items of interest to the Keys on the FWCs agenda take place on Wednesday. These include:Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary Superintendent Sean Morton updates the state agency on the sanctuarys ongoing review of its regulations. State waters are a large part of the marine sanctuary.Encouraging fish-population reports on species including spotted sea trout will be presented.Action to align grouper rules for Gulf of Mexico waters with federal rules will be considered.The Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association will make a presentation to FWC marine law enforcement.More shark protection among itemsON THE WATERBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com FWC looks at legalizing casitasCasitas manmade structures put on the sea floor to attract lobster may not be the environmental nightmare some feared, a new state study says. Lobster movement patterns do not appear to be affected by the presence of casitas, says a summary of the report, authored by John Hunt of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute.However, there are an awful lot of the illegally placed casitas in Lower Keys waters, the report notes, and they do significantly change early-season catches by commercial fishers.Hunt, a leading state lobster expert who heads the FWRIs Marathon office, will outline findings of the twoyear study to the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at the boards Wednesday meeting in Key Largo. At the urging of commercial lobster divers in late 2006, the FWC asked its research agency to see if casitas could become legal gear as part of the regular fishery. State scientists worked with members of the Ecologically Concerned Commercial Divers of the Lower Keys group to gather information for the new report.Taken from the Spanish for little house, casitas are used to attract and aggregate lobster so divers can harvest them quickly and easily.The major impact of casitas on the lobster fishery is they increase the rate of lobster removal during the first month of the fishing season and therefore shift landings from trappers to divers, the report authors found.Based on sample surveys, scientists estimate the study area 233 square miles in Gulf of Mexico waters north of the Lower Keys, generally 25 to 35 feet deep holds from 1,000 to 1,500 illegally placed casitas.Trap fishermen contend that large numbers of the artificial habitats might disrupt the lobstersnatural westward-moving migration through the Keys. For the study, scientists outfitted a group of lobsters with small underwater transmitters tracked by sub-sea listening stations. The initial results suggest lobster did not halt their movement to take up permanent residence at a casita. The study also concludes that casitas tend to remain relatively stationary, causing only minor changes to the hard bottom of the surrounding area. Small reef fish, primarily juvenile grunts, congregate around casitas in large numbers.FWC staff will ask its board members: Should staff begin a proposal for the use of casitas as a managed fishing gear in the commercial spiny lobster fishery? If the agency seeks to further investigate legalizing casitas, the process could take years, staff cautioned.Ahalf-dozen state and federal agencies, including the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, have some jurisdiction over the sea bottom around the Keys, the report notes. Issues that would be raised include how many casitas could be placed, how they would be built and who would be licensed to take lobster from them.Acopy of the FWRI presentation on lobster casitas is available at http://myfwc .com The FWC board begins meetings at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday and Thursday at the Key Largo Grande Resort, mile marker 97 bayside.Underwater structures nab lobsterCOMMERCIAL FISHINGBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgLAYTON KEYSNET.COM
the insects, says Derric Nimmo, the head of Public Health Research for Oxitec Ltd. in Abindon, England, which with Mosquito Control is partnering. Oxitec has already tried this in the Cayman Islands, Malaysia and Brazil, and the company says its been successful. In the Cayman Islands, we showed an 80 percent reduction in the mosquito population within about three months and we would expect a similar result in Key West, Nimmo said. This would be the first time genetically engineered mosquitoes would be released in the U.S. The effort would be focused in Old Town Key West, the flashpoint for dengue-carrying Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. Oxitec would grow the mosquito eggs in England and send them here, where Mosquito Control would breed the engineered bugs. Thats pending U.S. Department of Agriculture approval. There have been no reported cases of dengue fever in the Keys this year, but Monroe County health officials confirmed 93 cases since the disease was first reported in the summer of 2009. It causes bone pain and related maladies but isnt fatal. The Keys are well known for being progressive and trying new things. Ive arranged to try a small trial as soon as the regulatory approvals come in, Mosquito Control Director Michael Doyle said. Its a new technology for mosquitoes; its a very old technology [used] since the 1940s. In California, they release hundreds of millions of Mediterranean fruit flies a week. He said two 36-squareacre blocks of land are being targeted for a trial run early in 2012. Theyre near the Key West Cemetery but that the location and the size could change. For the trial, We will rear 5,000 to 10,000 mosquitoes [which would take about two weeks], release them in a small area, Doyle said. The idea is to outnumber wild males 10 to 1 because lab-born mosquitoes are not going to be as tough. That makes it more difficult for them to find females with which to mate. Were going to dust them with a fluorescent powder, release them and go out to trap them to see how far theyre flying. Also, itll tell us how many mosquitoes are out there on any given block, Doyle said. So how is success measured? The proof in the pudding is few adult male mosquitoes breeding in the wild, Doyle said. That would take about two months ... We wont know until early summer if the whole thing is successful. Some researchers have voiced concern that female mosquitoes, which are the only ones that bite, would be released, but Oxitec has developed a method to separate them at the pupa stage. The females are killed in the breeding lab and the males are in cages and emerge as adults. Males just fly around looking for females, Doyle said. Theyre like lots of very small employees. ANew York Times story about the effort in the Keys says numerous researchers say Oxitec is arousing concern about possible unintended effects on public health and the environment. Doyle said hes comfortable with the technology. Aedes aegypti is an invasive species ... it only lives around people, so its not a natural mosquito youd find out in the marshes. It doesnt have many natural enemies here. Their whole way to survive is to avoid other species, he said. Theres also a concern the mosquitoes could develop an immunity to the lethal gene. In ideal lab conditions, theres a possibility they survive to adulthood. Thats highly unlikely in the wild because theyre in competition with wild mosquitoes for food. Even if it did happen, their offspring would have the gene, Doyle said. Doyle said the district set aside $100,000 for the Oxitec trial. Thatll take us trough this year. Itll probably cost us $200,000 to $300,000 per year depending on how many mosquitoes we need to release, he said. But that could end up saving the district money over time because the district has spent $400,000 in the past year on Old Town helicopter treatments for dengue fever. That doesnt include the districts eight full-time dengue inspectors. Im thinking it would be a third of the cost if it works like the company thinks it will, Doyle said.Key West trial awaits Agriculture Department approvalFrom Mosquitoes,1A munity events like the Key Largo Food and Wine Festival and the Key Largo Stone Crab and Seafood Festival, but mentioned a developed public park or boat ramp. And the old Seven Mile Bridge, built as part of the Florida East Coast Railway some 100 years ago, has been closed to vehicular traffic since 2007 and fishing since 2008. The deteriorating condition of the bridge has spurred fears the span could be permanently closed as Florida Department of Transportation officials estimate repairs would cost anywhere from $16 million to $22 million, with no commitments in the offing. DOTis scheduled to give the bridge another inspection this month.Marathon City Manager Roger Hernstadt, keeping with previous comments, said the state should spend the money on the old span and and then turn the bridge over to the city in certifiable condition. From the day they do that, the collective wehave to start assembling $250,000 a year in perpetuity to keep that bridge going forward.Gastesi stressed to those assembled that in selling the tax extension, its important to overcome negative voter perceptions based on the countys failed purchase of the Hickory House property on Stock Island, financed with the infrastructure tax. That was a screw-up, Gastesi said of the 2006 purchase spearheaded by thenCommissioner Dixie Spehar. Weve got that Hickory House factor but hopefully we can overcome that by painting the full picture, meaning that the $3.13 million purchase (the property is valued at $996,995) represents less than 1 percent out of the total 1-cent expenditures and encumbrances.Hernstadt agreed: Weve got to take the Hickory House factor, put it in an envelope and never look at it again.County Supervisor of Elections Harry Sawyer acknowledged the voter makeup has changed since the tax was conceived in 1989, but said he thinks Keys residents would support the extension, particularly with the quality-of-life component.Youve got to find ways to get people to support it, he said. I dont think itll be a hard sell, but youve got to give them something to vote for. Gastesi estimated that if the tax were discontinued, someone earning $40,000 a year would save only $2 per week.

CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALGOP,pay heed to Florida seniorsGUEST COLUMNThe armistice that eventually ended hostilities in the Great War and the lives of 20 million people was signed by the allies and Germany on the 11th day of the 11th month in the 11th hour in Compiegne, France; it was 1918, and Armistice Day was born. The Versailles Treaty officially ending World War I wasnt signed until the summer of 1919. The war to end all wars embroiled most of Europe beginning in 1914, long before a reluctant President Wilson would ask Congress for a declaration of war in 1917 and a call to arms of a generation of young Americans. Sent to the Western Front in the spring of 1918, my grandfather, George Connelly, would attain the rank of sergeant in the U.S. Army Cavalry. A strapping blacksmith from New Haven, Conn., all of 22 years of age, George was called to duty and along with thousands of Yanks like him were welcomed by the allies with open arms as songs of Over There and Roll out the Barrel filled the air. America would make its presence known on the world stage and never look back. Less than 15 years after the armistice, Japan invaded Manchuria and committed atrocities known as the Rape of Manchuria. By 1937, the Empire of the Rising Sun invaded China; World War II had begun in Asia. Germany invaded Poland in 1939, beginning World War II in Europe. It would be a full two years before a Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor in late 1941 would see the U.S. entry into the war. The lessons of war would be forever lost on this next generation. Little did my grandfather suspect, upon returning home from France in 1918, that his childrens generation would witness all too soon the world warring again. My mother, Betty Connelly, married my father, Vince Pettorini, in February 1942, shortly before he joined the U.S. Coast Guard (then under the direction of the Navy) an assignment that saw him and his crew aboard the cutter Redbud patrolling the Florida coastline, including the Florida Keys. The Pettorini boys, my father and his five brothers six sons of Italian immigrants enlisted in the armed forces and served in every branch: Army, Giovanni; Air Force, Mario and Gino; Coast Guard, Vincenzo; Navy, Alberto; and Marine Corps, Levino. They served and fought in the Pacific to the Atlantic, on the ground, in the air and on the seas. Another first-generation American, Pasquale Gallucci, then future father of my future wife Paula, enlisted in Marine Corps at age 30, despite a draft deferral, a wife and two children. He was so old, his Marine Corps brothers at Paris Island called him Pop. He received the Purple Heart during the invasion of Okinawa. The world may never forget the millions and millions who perished in that war and in the Holocaust. It may be the reason the U.S. Congress has not officially declared war on any nation since. Korea a war by another name but called a police action saw my Uncle Gino (a career airman) continue the family tradition of citizen warrior. This one starts in 1950, just five years after the end of World War II. Some say its not yet over. Just as World War II was the direct outgrowth of World War I and its punishing Versailles Treaty, Korea closely followed World War II, while Vietnam had its origins in French Colonialism and the freedom from colonial rule granted to it by the occupying Japanese during World War II. Another undeclared war Vietnam saw my brother, John Pettorini, and cousin Michael Pettorini (son of Alberto) serve in country with the Army, and cousin Robert Pettorini (son of Gino) was aboard ship with the Navy another generation of duty-bound, reluctant warriors. Yet again, a generation commits to the call of service. My son, James, Marine Corps, celebrated his 30th birthday with thousands of his brothers in arms during the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 Operation Iraqi Freedom. Our World War I and World War II family members are all but gone the men and their wives, our aunts and uncles, and parents. They were a unique group of people who loved each other, their families, their country, and God. We may not see their like again. Without their example, I would not have a brother, cousins and son who did what they had to do when they had to do it, even when they didnt want to do it. Today, Veterans Day (Nov. 11) is the name of our national holiday that honors all American veterans of all wars. When I was a kid, it was still called Armistice Day. The tradition was to take two minutes of silence at 11 a.m. as a sign of respect for all members of the armed forces who were killed in war. I hope that each of you did this in memory of all those who made the ultimate sacrifice. God bless America.They say no to Medicare, Social Security cuts and hold clout in states presidential politicsAs several states jockey for position as the key to deciding the 2012 presidential election, its clear Florida can lay a claim as legitimate as Ohio, Pennsylvania or Michigan. Thats based on one fact: Floridas voting profile skews heavily toward the senior end of the age scale. And traditionally, thats been good for Republicans running in the Sunshine State. This time, however, theres a growing rift developing between what the GOPpresidential frontrunners are preaching about Social Security and Medicare and what those senior voters in Florida think is good for them. Anew poll commissioned by the AARP(formerly known as the American Association of Retired Persons) released this week shows that nearly 60 percent of the Republican primary voters in Florida are retired. Asked about proposed cuts to Social Security benefits, those responding were opposed by 68-28 percent, the AARPpollsters noted. Asked about reducing Medicare benefits to help reduce the deficit, the poll showed only 22 percent of likely Republican primary voters would endorse that idea. Nearly 70 percent said no way. Clearly, theres a disconnect in the GOPranks when it comes to these hot-button issues. Yes, its easy for the GOPcandidates and their handlers to say there go the Democrats, trotting out the olSocial Security and Medicare scare machine. Only, this wasnt the Democrats asking the questions. The AARPattempts to be nonpartisan, as much as it can. And clearly it sees seniors as their constituency, which also means a particular focus on retirement issues, especially anything that messes with Social Security or Medicare. The message these [Florida] voters are sending is clear: Do not cut the Social Security and Medicare benefits theyve earned, said Nancy LeaMond, AARPexecutive vice president. In a statement released on Thursday, she added: These findings demonstrate that strong majorities of supporters for every Republican presidential candidate oppose cuts to Social Security and Medicare benefits. And its not even a closely divided electorate on that score. Support of Medicare was even more pronounced, with voters opposing cuts to the federal health program by a 70-22 percent margin, the AARPsaid. Heres the real kicker: The popularity of both federal programs extends to GOPparty members who said they agree with the Tea Party and had attended Tea Party events. So one thing becomes clear: Florida is in play because it can swing presidential elections. And increasingly, it will be how seniors vote and how many that may determine who shapes those critical decisions about Social Security and Medicare beyond 2012.Veterans Day through the eyes of a military family Jim Pettorini and his wife of 45 years, Paula,have lived in Key Colony Beach since 2004, moving from Chicago after Jim retired as president and chief operating officer of insurance company CNA Long Term Care. This is a celebratory parade on Duval Street in Key West on Nov.11,1918 the day World War 1 hostilities ended with an armistice,or temporary truce.However, the war officially ended on June 28,1919,when the Treaty of Versailles was signed.The war was fought by Russia,France,Britain and the U.S.on one side and,on the other,Germany,along with Turkey and Hungary. Nov.11 is now,of course, Veterans Day.Photo courtesy MONROE COUNTY LIBRARYTow-cap limit likelyHaving finally gained the consent of industry operators the new law would affect, Key West Mayor Craig Cates plans to bring an ordinance before the City Commission next week that caps tows from private property at $100.As it stands, tows requested by property owners have no set price and for years, locals and tourists have complained of excessive and sometimes questionable fees that drive the price to the $300-plus range. Cates chalked that up to an industry regulated on the state level but not locally: They were all charging these rates. Theyd say, Well, this company is doing it, so Ill do it, too.Cates brought forward a similar measure last year that eventually failed after a protracted public comment period. The second try at the ordinance was postponed earlier this month at the behest of Commissioner Clayton Lopez, who wanted to meet with tow company representatives and hash out points of contention prior to Tuesdays commission meeting, set for 6 p.m. at Old City Hall on Greene Street.Lopezs meeting went down this past Tuesday; Cates, Lopez and commissioners Mark Rossi and Tony Yaniz attended. We worked out every issue and we left there with the price staying at $100, Cates said. Were just trying to bring the price down to where it should be. Also contained in the proposed ordinance is a set gate fee of $30 and language that sets the processing fee at $25 for someone claiming the towed auto.Other itemsAlso on Tuesdays commission agenda is an item that would extend city control of the state-owned submerged land that makes up the 188-slip Key West Bight.If approved, the city would give the state Department of Environmental Protection $50,592 as consideration for the 10-year lease term, valid until May 15, 2021. In other business, commissioners will consider applying an interim land-use designation of zoning in progress to the 23-acre, 157-unit Peary Court residential neighborhood while a contract company working for the U.S. Navy brokers the sale of the parcel to a private interest.The zoning-in-progress label serves as a placeholder, limiting more development on the property until the future-land-use element of the citys comprehensive plan and land development regulations can be changed. Peary Court is 23-acres with 157 residential units. It could fetch $30 million.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTCity rejects tow changesCity of Marathon residents and tourists should keep some extra cash on hand if they plan to take a chance and park in a private tow-away zone. The City Council on Tuesday unanimously voted down its own ordinance that would require tow companies in the city to accept travelers checks, credit cards and debit cards in addition to cash. Florida Keys Towing owner Bill Pruitt, along with Paradise Towing owner Kerry Struyf, were on hand to argue against accepting credit and debit cards. Their arguments were enough to sway the council, which discussed changes to the existing two law two weeks ago. Problems arose recently when Florida Keys Towing began removing trucks and boat trailers from the private property adjacent to the public boat ramp at the former Quay restaurant. Pruitt told the council the propertys owner, the estate of Gus Boulis, who was murdered in Fort Lauderdale in 2001, requested he monitor the property. Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay said he received several e-mails complaining about the towing, in particular Pruitts insistence to accept only cash. But Pruitt said customers often dispute towing charges to their credit-card companies.Most of the time on the credit card, you can kick it back. Well have to fight with people after the fact. If you make us accept credit cards, you need to make everyone accept credit cards, he said, referring to some restaurants and taxi companies that accept only cash.Pruitt was also clear that his company has more than enough signs nine, he said at the Quay property warning against parking there. In tow-away zones, state statute requires signs at each driveway or curb cut allowing vehicular access to the property. If there are none, the signs must be posted not less than one sign for each 25 feet of lot frontage. Struyf also pointed out state law regarding sign requirements and said the real issue is with accepting credit cards. I dont take credit cards. I have a drawer full of local checks bouncing on me, he said. When they walk into your yard, theyre not happy. Were the grim reaper, you know?Pruitt told the council its missing the big picture, which is a lack of public parking at the boat ramps. We need to fix the problem versus coming after us, he said.City Manager Roger Hernstadt said hes already been in touch with the Boulis estate about a parking arrangement with the city.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON

Big Pine KeyFL.Reg.Mover # IM26 US DOT # 966624FL BusinessYour business culture must be definedQuestion: How do you build a business that lasts? We have a family business that is more than 30 years old. Our anniversary celebration was just a few weeks ago. We are the second generation of family management and would like to ensure the business remains successful for our kids, grandchildren and beyond. My husband and I have attended several seminars and workshops that deal with the subject of succession planning. The last one we attended said that before you can build a business that lasts, you have to have a culture that can last. Despite sitting through three days of presentations, we are still unclear about what this means. Can you help? Answer: In the rock-em, sock-em day-to-day world of the average Florida Keys business, not a lot of thought or discussion is given to business culture. Yet for businesses that want to succeed beyond the founder, cultural issues are critical. First, lets talk about what a companys culture actually is. In the simplest terms, a business culture is its core values and guiding principles that are employed on a both a day-today and a long-term basis. Heres another question, designed especially for those readers who have followed this column for a while: Where does a companys culture come from? If your answer is the owners, congratulate yourself, youre right. Another question that sometimes follows: How can my company get a culture? And of course, the answer is your company already has a culture. The issue is how to define it. This issue is important, since its by defining the businessexisting culture that ownership can more fully communicate it to employees, customers, suppliers and others involved with the business. Why is this important? Because the more on board these people are with what your business is about, the easier it is to do a lot of things, like sustaining profitability. Like finding and retaining good employees. Like developing and retaining good customers. Like finding and retaining good outside advisors. Like developing family and other management team members that can carry the business into the next generation and beyond. The first thing I encourage my clients to do is define their culture in a way that will make it easy to communicate key aspects of it to employees, clients and others. The easiest way to do this is using war stories and icons. All owners have favorite stories about the business that come to mind. If you are an owner suffering from a temporary mental block, ask a few of your long-time employees about their favorite war stories related to the business. Look at the kinds of things these war stories illustrate, and search for common themes. Before long, you should have a pretty good idea of what your business culture is all about. Just as important, youll have captured some real-life stories that can be used to illustrate your culture to future employees, customers and others. Another easy way to define and communicate your culture at the same time is to develop icons. An example of this was effectively used by the accounting firm up north to which I sold my business. That firm, for more than 10 years, has made Fortune magazines list of the 100 best companies to work for in the United States. Its iconology goes something like this: We have good employees that do good work for good clients that pay good fees so that we can hire good employees that do.... Another example struck my eye as I was visiting one of my clients up north a few months ago. The client is a small specialty chemical manufacturing company. Many of its competitors are giant international companies. My client competes successfully because it views itself as more competent, professional and responsive to the customersneeds than their giant competitors. In other words, my client may be small in terms of sales dollars, facilities and number of employees, but is a giant in terms of capabilities and attitudes. The icon that caught my attention? One of its employees Photoshopped the company name and logo on a picture of the Trump Tower recently completed in downtown Chicago. Another one posted the picture on a bulletin board in the reception area. Everyone at the company thought it was funny, and all of us had a good laugh. But as we discussed this among ourselves, it became apparent that this picture would be on the bulletin board a long time. Apart from being funny, it was a true picture of exactly how the company views itself in its competitive environment. And thanks to one computerliterate employee, this view is up there for all the world to see. Now that you know all of this, how about getting out there and making some money?

As expected, Marathon City Councilman Pete Worthington was selected by his colleagues Tuesday to finish his third consecutive two-year term on the dais as mayor.Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay nominated Worthington for the year-long mayorship at the councils annual organizational meeting at the Marathon Government Center. This is his last term and he deserves the honor and Im proud to put up Councilman Worthington for mayor, Ramsay said.Worthington was mayor once before, from November 2007 to November 2008, when he previously served on the council. Outgoing Mayor Ginger Snead, who served two years, closed nominations after no other names were announced and quickly took nominations for vice mayor. Councilman Mike Cinque offered up Ramsay and no one else was nominated, so he got the vice mayorship. After his mayoral election, Worthington took his seat at the middle of the dais. Thank you very much for bestowing the honor of mayor on me. Hopefully Ill do a good job the next 12 months, he said. Councilman Richard Keating thanked Snead for her two years in the position. I know she has a full-time business and personal life. Oftentimes it doesnt leave time for anything else and shes taken the time to make sure the business of the city gets done, he said. The mayor holds no additional power on the council, but does run meetings and votes last on each action item. The mayor also signs city documents and attends events on behalf of the city.

As a result, the Conch boys team will go on to the state meet. Ateam had to finish in the top six to advance and the Conchs were fourth. They were led by Ryan Wagner, who bettered his personal-best time in the 5K (3.1 miles) by 11 seconds in finishing 15th in 17:28, a Key West record for a senior. If the team hadnt advanced, Wagner still would have because a runner had to be in the top 15. He ran the race of his life, said coach Terence White. With a mile to go, he was 18th. After Wagner, who was 1:01 behind race winner Bert Irigoyen of Ransom Everglades, the next six Conchs came in, White said, in the blink of an eye. They were Tony Guieb (18:34), Aeschton Tomita (18:35), Julian Ramirez (18:36), Everett Wagner (18:42), Brock Guzman (18:47) and Tyler Hancock (19:01). Hancock was the fastest seventh runner in school history, White said. The Conch girls teams season ended with an eighth-place finish, although the top two runners Tristin Milliken and Liz Czerwinski had personalbest times of 21:44 and 22:01, respectively. Milliken was 24th overall. Erin Czerwinski (23:40), Marlee Gil (24:10) and Morgan Nelson (24:33) also ran.

The victory evened the Hurricane record at 5-5, breaking a string of losing records for the Upper Keys program. All the players and coaches are very proud we were able to get back to .500, said Ed Holly, who capped his premiere season as head coach. Coral Shores has a very proud football tradition so this is a good step forward for our first year. Against a feisty but winless Sheridan Hills Christian squad, the Hurricanes came out fast: Senior Alex Gomez returned the opening kick 84 yards to set up his 8-yard scoring run on first down. Sheridans Sharks answered midway in the first, hitting a 39-yard touchdown pass after a series of inside runs. Coral Shores blocked the point-after kick to keep the lead at 7-6. From there it was a Hurricane night, despite a flurry of penalty flags that negated long gains, scoring plays and turnovers. With the Canesdefensive front Hever Viguera, Will Ismer, David Bogue and Terrill Taylor leading the charge against the run, the Sharks found some success through the air. But an interception by freshman Anthony Vera stopped one Sheridan Hills threat and put the Canes on their way. Team rusher leader Andrew Garcia ripped off 27 yards to start a 77-yard scoring drive, finished when Gomez bulled over from five yards out on the second play of the second quarter. Ano-gain stop by Cane linebacker Henry Rroshi and a pass breakup by Joey Vaughn then ended a Shark drive at midfield. After a penalty wiped out a 16-yard gain by fullback Kodi Roberts, Garcia sprinted around left end to outrun the Shark defenders on a 43-yard touchdown. Paul Paucheys kick made it 22-6 with 7:30 before halftime.First winning season in years for the teamCORAL SHORES 50,SHERIDAN HILLS 6By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWCoral Shores senior Alex Gomez (1) goes around end for a long gain in a 50-6 win over Sheridan Hills.Gomez scored twice in the Hurricanes season finale Thursday.See Hurricanes,2BDolphins close out tough football seasonAs soon as the final buzzer sounded on a 26-3 loss that ended the Marathon High School football season Thursday, the Dolphins started thinking about 2012. Our kids played hard to the end, Dolphin head coach Lane Martin said after the finale at Doral Academy (4-6). Marathon scored its last points of the 2-8 season on a 39-yard field goal by junior kicker Yoniel Esquirol. Ramarlo Robertson set up the scoring drive by intercepting a Firebird pass. Trevelle Beckford capped his Marathon football career with 12 carries for 88 yards. Dwayne Ellis, Tommy Dodamead and Joey Gonzalez join Robertson and Beckford in the Dolphinsgraduating senior class. Those guys have been great but were still a very young football team. Of 26 guys on the squad, 19 are freshmen or sophomores, Martin said. We start three freshmen on defense, which is the same number of senior defensive starters. The upside for 2012 is that it means eight defensive starters and seven offensive starters will be eligible to return as Dolphins. These kids will mature and get stronger in the weight room, the coach said. Despite being bumped up several classes to play in the rugged District 16-3A, the Dolphins kept slugging it out, Martin said. With the new district, we were kind of set up for trouble from the beginning, Martin said. Our guys went into a lot of games knowing they had to play perfectly and have a lot of good things happen for them to have any chance at winning.2012 squad to consist of veteran playersDORAL 26,MARATHON 3By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com Doral overpowers Lady DolphinsThe Marathon High School girls soccer team fell behind early Thursday and struggled to create offense in a home loss to Doral Charter Academy. The Firebirds scored in the third and 10th minutes to go up 2-0 and added a third during the first halfs last minute. They never looked back en route to an 8-0 victory. The Dolphins managed five shots on goal during the game, four of which came in the first half. Im frustrated for the girls, not at the girls. Were going to get there. We have to play the regular season and try to learn to prepare for the postseason. There are some positives from this game and there are some negatives, coach Lynn Landry said.The 1-2 squad hosts Somerset this TuesdayMARATHON SOCCER Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYMarathons Katie Landry (left) fights for the ball in the DolphinsThursday defeat to Doral.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comSee Girls soccer,2B

The two used to play soccer together at the old Kennedy Drive fields. Were excited, Eggers said as his team warmed up at the Back Yard to face visiting Marathon. And in two days, they would take on Coral Shores. With a cash-strapped program and a booster club plagued by dissension, Eggers was trying to ward off the distractions. When he discovered that some uniforms from last season were missing, he said he used $625 of his money to buy new ones so we wouldnt be embarrassed. The game began in 5 oclock sunshine, and only two minutes in, the Conchs Elec Fils-Aime scored for a 1-0 lead. Eggers and Dunne stood side by side on the sideline. Fantastic! Fantastic! Fantastic! Dunne yelled. Well played. Thats great football. It was still 1-0 early in the second half when Justin Hamilton swooped out of nowhere to make it 2-0. On the sideline, Eggers told a trio of players, Dont complain, say, Yes, coach. Clifford was one of the spectators. When Fila-Aime broke toward the goal, the former coach yelled, Youre in, Elec. Abit later, Marathon keeper Edwin Ibanez came out to stop John Remercy. The two collided before the Conch sophomore raced in for a tap-in goal. Senior Michael McLaughlin scored the final goal and the game ended, 40, beneath a full moon. It was a good start, we want to continue Jason Cliffords legacy, said Eggers. Absolutely fantastic, Dunne added. On Thursday afternoon, Eggers expected a tougher match against Coral Shores. At the 10-minute mark, Orion Jones (Hes a spark out there, Eggers said) stole the ball and beat Hurricane keeper Alejandro Bolivar for a 1-0 lead. A header by Kaemon Tomita made it 2-0, but Alec Huston answered with his left foot to cut the lead to 21 before halftime. Early in the second half, the visitorsA.J. Paterson got a penalty kick behind goalie Roderick Gil to tie the game at 2-2. Soon after that, the ConchsJustin Hamilton tried a PK that Bolivar got in front of. But the ball bounced away and Hamilton put in the rebound to make it 3-2. As time wound down, the Conchs went into a defensive mode. Get it out of there, Dunne yelled with 15 seconds left. And they did to preserve a 3-2 victory and a 2-0 start on the season. I feel better now than I did before the season, Hamilton said. I didnt have a lot of expectations. The last words went to Dunne: These guys never stopped. Im proud of them.Good start to yearFrom Soccer,1B Three minutes later, Bogue recovered a Sheridan Hills fumble at the Shark 3yard line at 3:56, setting up a Roberts score on a dive two plays later. With 1:45 left in the half, Viguera tipped a Sheridan pass at the line that was intercepted by freshman linebacker Eddie Dunn, who raced 44 yards for the final score of the opening half. As Coral Shores scored on a 37-yard drive in the third quarter a 23-yard Roberts run, set up by runs by Gomez and Garcia to make it 43-6, the game went into a running clock. AVaughn interception started the last Cane drive featuring a 25-yard Roberts run and 9-yard Garcia run before Dunn escaped for the 17-yard touchdown that made it 50-6. Our guys came in knowing what they had to do to be successful, Holly said. Were very happy with the way they finished up. Coral Shores graduates 11 seniors from the 5-5 squad.Strong finishFrom Hurricanes,1B The team is young and inexperienced for the most part, and many of the players havent played together before. Thursdays game was the first time all players were available to play. Last year [Doral] beat us, 3-2, and we beat them 2-1 the year before, so thats what I was expecting. I figured it would be a really hard-fought game and there was a little breakdown here and there, Landry said. Savannah Rodamer had the Dolphinsonly shot on goal in the second half, while Doral added goals in the third, sixth and 10th minutes to put the game out of reach at 6-0. The seventh and eighth goals came late in the second half. Marathon (1-2) was scheduled to host Pine Crest School Friday, but results were not available at press time. The girls are slated to host Somerset Academy Tuesday at 6 p.m. at the high school.Dolphins regroupFrom Girls soccer,1B Conchs wrap season with easy winLed by a trio of seniors NaQuan McNeill, Clive Georges and St. Pierre Anilus the Key West High football team closed its season Thursday night with a 34-8 victory over Champagnat Catholic in a homecoming game at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium. McNeill scored three touchdowns on runs of 5, 3 and 24 yards; Georges caught six passes for 95 yards and scored on a 38yard end-around; and Anilus, the star linebacker, scored on a 4-yard run on the only offensive carry of his career. The Conchs finished 5-4, with one victory coming by forfeit. Their losses to Miami powers Norland and Jackson kept them out of the state playoffs. Jerry Hughes ended the fourth year of his second stint as the Conchscoach. He is 22-15 since returning to his alma mater in 2008. It was an up-and-down season, he said. Except for a two-point conversion and a blocked field goal, we could have been 7-2. McNeill scored late in the first quarter after a 48-yard pass set up the touchdown from junior quarterback Donald Roberts to Georges. Roberts completed 12 of 22 passes for 186 yards. Touchdowns by Georges and McNeill in the second quarter gave the Conchs a 21-0 halftime lead. After Rachel Quad was crowned homecoming queen, Key West scored twice more in the third quarter, including the short TD run by an elated Anilus, who will now join the wrestling team. Champagnat avoided a shutout when it scored on a 21-yard pass with five minutes left in a fourth quarter that went by quickly because of a running clock. Junior running back Norman Lopez, who hopes to be McNeills successor next season, caught four passes for 65 yards and made a 21-yard run. After the game, the Conchs went back to the school, where the seniors turned in their jerseys and reflected on their careers. It was a bawling session, Hughes said. Its always emotions. This is all some of these kids have.Team finishes 5-4 on seasonKEY WEST 34,CHAMPAGNAT 8By DICK WAGNERKeynoter Contributor By BERT BUDDESt.Pierre Anilus wraps up Champagnat quarterback Constant Antoine as William Funnye (7) rushes in Thursday night.Lady Dolphins in rebuilding modeMarathon High School looks to replace four graduated seniors as girls basketball coach Leslie Lindsey continues rebuilding a program thats struggled in recent years. The girls are working hard, she said. We have a few players whore going to fill those roles nicely. The team (2-15 last year) is without a single senior for the season and all but four players are freshman or younger. We have a whole bunch of eighthand ninth-graders, Lindsey said. What we build on this year we can carry on to next year. Returning freshman Johnisha Qualls will play a much larger role this season, Lindsey said. She didnt see many minutes at the varsity level last year, but she worked hard in the off-season. Im looking for her to possibly fill the point guard role. Junior Jessica Forest returning returns as a wing guard. She and fellow junior Cassidy Van Voorst will be team captains. Freshman Taja Hidalgo is another returning starter on which the team will rely. She plays solid defense and is improving her offensive game. Were looking for her to come up big this season. Shes a strong defensive player that just hustles and gets after it, Lindsey said. The teams leading rebounder from a season ago is returning sophomore guard Brianna Williams. Rounding out the varsity roster are Katelyn Boyden, Gardine Raymond, Rosalia Parrado, Amanda Davis, Aurora Young, Yailin Nieda and Yoslyne Conde. The girls were scheduled to play in a preseason tournament at Westwood Christian School this weekend, with a game Friday against the Warriors and one today at 4 p.m. against Archimedean Academy.All players are junior or youngerMARATHON HOOPSBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com

FREE Parking Rod & Reel Rental Available Special Childrens Rates Cold Drinks Available Fish Cleaning Service Recycles Day is Tuesday;do your partMy husband grew up in Miami and was always on the water, whether diving, fishing or sailing. As a young man, he made frequent diving trips to the Keys and has vivid memories of the healthy reefs and abundant marine life. His life goal was to live in the Keys and nine years ago, that finally happened when we moved to the Lower Keys. Last month, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which comanages the Keys coral reef system known as the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, issued its Condition Report 2011. One of its conclusions is that the reef faces many pressures on its water quality. The pollutants and contaminants from inadequate sewage and wastewater treatment systems, along with rainfall runoff that carries fertilizers, pesticides, insecticides, chemicals, oil and other hazardous liquids into the ground water, are contributing factors. These and other reasons compromise the water quality and the health of the reef. Yes, my husband has seen dramatic changes in the reefs he has known since the early 1970s. He remembers seeing vast acreage of coral full of vibrant color and teeming with marine life, where there are now areas of barren rocks smothered with algae. But a passionate free-diver, he still finds beautiful areas where the fish are thriving and the reef is healthy, and it continues to amaze him. I am not a diver but am conscious of how contaminated water can affect the reef. So in our yard, I grow native plants that need no fertilizers or pesticides, use organic compost for the raised-bed vegetable garden, and drop off our hazardous waste at the waste transfer station in Cudjoe Key. Trash that makes its way into the ocean is a huge problem and degrades the water quality. Some of it is windblown, flushed via storm drains, accidentally dropped or abandoned, and some is deliberately tossed into the water. All of it makes up marine debris. It can kill marine animals and sea birds, damage coral reefs and contaminate our shorelines. As much as 90 percent of floating marine debris may be plastic. Plastic products have risen from 1.5 million tons in 1950 to 130 million tons in 2009 annually. One study found 35 percent of plankton-eating fish have ingested small fragments of plastic they mistake for food when feeding. As overwhelming as this problem may seem, marine debris is an issue we can all do something about. Dispose of your waste responsibly when eating out, visiting parks, beaches and on the water. Keep your household trash bin covered to stop items flying out on windy days or when the raccoons knock it over. Tuesday is America Recycles Day as declared by the National Recycling Coalition. Monroe County organizes several community cleanup days in recognition of the day one takes place today on Big Coppitt Key and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuarys Team OCEAN program welcomes volunteers to join its beach cleanups. In 2010, Team OCEAN staff and volunteers collected more than 10,000 pounds of marine debris. To learn more about Team OCEAN, visit www.floridakeys.noaa.gov. Reducing disposable, onetime-only plastic bottles, food containers and bags can also go a long way to reducing marine debris and, at the same time, conserves the oil and energy used to produce them. Recycling is good, reducing waste is better. Everyday actions like this can make a big difference and help protect the coral reef system, one of the Keys most loved natural resources.

Crossword solutionSolution to the November 9 puzzle. Wanted: Kids nature habitatsKids in the Keys and elsewhere in Florida can enter the Florida Wildlife Federations third annual Kids Wildlife Habitat Contest, open to youths ages 12 and under. Its easy: Just tell contest organizers how your nature habitat whether at home, school or somewhere else provides water, food, cover and a place for wildlife to raise its young. The habitat can be anything from a butterfly garden to bird nests. The winning habitat will be featured on the federations website and in its newsletter. The winner will also get an age-suitable gardening book and commemorative plaque. Entries must be received by March 31. The federation says theres great concern among health-care specialists, educators, environmentalists and parents about the shrinking amount of time children spend playing outdoors. Less time outdoors can mean increased obesity and less first-hand observation of basic scientific lessons to be learned from being outdoors. Trying to stem that is the reason for the contest to get kids to reconnect with nature and at the same time teach them something about identifying plants and animals in the natural world. If your child or students dont already have a habitat to nominate, go to www.fwfonline.org to see how to create one, and what past winners did. The winner will be announced on Earth Day in April.

And even Louis Rukeyser dont have a reason why. Econo-me, econo-you... Singer, songwriter, story teller Tom Chapins ode to economic woes first aired three years ago. On Friday, Nov. 18, Key West audiences will get a chance to hear Chapin at the Old Town New Folk concert hosted by the Studios of Key West. Chapin, a Grammy winning artist whos been performing for more than 30 years, is known for his melodic guitar work and intelligent, thoughtful song writing. Its come naturally to Tom, whose late brother Harry Chapin was a wellknown artist in his own right. Brother Steve is also a musician and their dad, the late Jim Chapin, was a famous jazz drummer and folk singer. The Nov. 18 concert will be a mix of Chapins music in what he calls his adult repertoire. His album Broadsides, written and performed with John Forster, has such songs as Econome-oh-my, Zombie Bank and The Chief Executive Chain Gang. If you see a message in those song titles, youd be right. Chapin comes from a long line of folk singers who care about peoples rights, their country, families and the bonds that link us to community. My musical heroes are people like Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie, he says, and that says a lot. Asked about the Occupy Wall Street movement happening now, Chapin says: Im thrilled about the energy and it being so inclusive. Its pretty obvious that corporatetocracy big money has made it hard for the average Joe to make a living. Another contemporary issue high on his radar: education.

Add a mix of Broadway show tunes, pop, even some disco. And partner voices and talents in duets. If that sounds like a prescription for a very fun evening of song and dance and acting chops, then youve got the idea behind the Waterfront Playhouses season-opening It Takes Two An Evening of Duets. Danny Weathers, playhouse artistic director, says the lineup of talent for this one promises to be an evening not to be missed. Many of the best-known performers from Key West musical theater are scheduled to appear: Eric Cole, Marc Crow, Robin Deck, Kim Gordon, Deb Hudson, Joy Hawkins, Denis Hyland, Maj Johnson, Fiona Malloy, J. B. McLendon, Joe McMurray, Gayla Morgan, Mike Mulligan, Ruben Navarro, Bobby Nesbitt, Randy Roberts, Carmen Rodriguez, Gordon Ross, Vicki Roush, Rich Simone, Randy Thompson, Sandy and Dean Walters, Danny Weathers and several surprises. Guest conductor Charles Lindberg from New York will accompany the singers, with Joe Dallas on bass and Skipper Kripitz on percussion. The concert will feature such songs as I Say ALittle Prayer For You, Its Almost Like Being In Love, Do You Want To Dance, as well as numbers from such Broadway hits as Hairspray, Spamalot, Into The Woods, AChorus Line, Fiddler On The Roof, and a finale that Weathers says is guaranteed to have everyone jumping out of their seats. The Friday, Nov. 18, concert includes an after-party sponsored by the Elwell family, with catering by Jennifer Cornell and Small Chef At Large. Tickets cost $72 (celebrating the Waterfronts 72 years). Saturday, Nov. 19., sans party afterwards, costs $50 per ticket.

That song, carried on National Public Radios Morning Edition, kicked off a series of musical essays that Chapin performed for the NPR audience. Chapin says he sees whats been happening as teachers are made the scapegoats in downsizing of local government workers. The richest of the rich are the problem, he said, not the people doing the hard work. Its so shortsighted. Im a big believer in educating the whole human in how to think and to do that you have to engage kids in school. Cutting sports, arts and drama and making learning all rote, thats not going to engage our kids. Tickets cost $25 in advance; $30 on the day of the show.

This is the 11th annual Survivors Concert. Richard Hatch, owner of Salutes and Blue Heaven, is in charge of food preparation. Food for the event is being donated by Salutes, Faustos, The Restaurant Store and Cisco. Local merchants and others have donated raffle prizes that range from theatre tickets to dance lessons and even water sport adventures. The Survivors band got its start in Key West with Quint Lange, Woody Allen, Din Allen, Marty Stonely and Dennis Elmo Hooten. The name of the band comes from surviving hurricane season in Key West back in the 1980s, which they describe as an adventure only the hardiest of souls undertook. Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. They can be purchased at Salute, Blue Heaven, Good Food Conspiracy on Big Pine Key and at WomanKind, which has moved into their new space at the corner of Truman Avenue and Eisenhower Drive.

Edgar is Clint Eastwoods biography of J. Edgar Hoover, the legendary long-time head of the FBI, and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Judi Dench, Naomi Watts and Armie Hammer. Using the narrative device of Hoover dictating his memoirs to a succession of FBI agents, who all just happen to be young and handsome men (women werent allowed into the FBI as agents until after Hoovers death), we watch the rise and slow decay of one of Americas most powerful men. The film shows us Hoovers start at the Bureau of Investigation in 1919, the start of the FBI in 1935, and continues through eight presidents and three wars, to 1972, when he died in office. We see him as an early crime fighter who spearheaded the use of forensic science and fingerprint identification, techniques that would change law enforcement all over the world. J. Edgar shows Hoovers battles with the 1930s Depression-era gangsters like John Dillinger and Machine Gun Kelly and goes into a lot of detail about his fight against communism, as well as the kidnapping and murder of the Lindbergh baby in 1932. The film also deals with Hoovers relations with his domineering mother (Dench), his loyal secretary Ms. Gandy (Watts) and his trusted second-in-command, companion and probable lover, Clyde Tolson (Hammer). There have been rumors about Hoovers sexuality for decades. He was never married and lived with his mother until well into his forties. And his close relationship with Tolson, both personally and professionally, raised questions that no one dared to ask while Hoover was still alive. The screenplay was written by Dustin Lance Black, the openly gay writer of the Sean Penn film Milk, so I was disappointed that the question of Hoovers sexuality wasnt more clearly defined in this film treatment. Flashing back and forth in time, we see Hoovers relationship with the Kennedys and his distrust of Martin Luther King and Richard Nixon. Throughout all this time-shifting, DiCaprio appears young, then old, then young again, then middle-aged, then old, etc. until ultimately, DiCaprios poorly done makeup becomes a distraction because his face is, well, so in our face. The credits show no less than 15 makeup artists, including DiCaprios personal artist. With that many involved; youd think they could have done a better job. Run time is a long two hours and 17 minutes and the film poses almost as many questions as it answers. What dirt did Hoover have on those eight presidents that kept him in power for nearly 50 years? Was he really gay or was that just a rumor started by the Russians? How did Hoover earn Ms. Gandys devotion for all those years? Was he wearing lingerie under those business suits? Unanswered questions aside, the acting is excellent and there is already Oscar talk about best picture, best actor and best director nominations. DiCaprios performance alone earns the film my recommendation. But I think J. Edgar faces a few problems at the box office. For older folks, the long running time and constant shifting in time and place may be a little off-putting. And much of the world, especially the sought after younger demographic, has probably never heard of J. Edgar Hoover and may not care enough to find out about him. It will be interesting to see if the star power of DiCaprio and Eastwood can overcome those obstacles.FILM REVIEWCraig Wanous KEYS FILM The complete Florida Keys news and information source.
