Were continuing what they started this year but were not going forward next year.The initiative, which if successful would have made Monroe the first comprehensive so-called IB district in the state, was proposed by then-Superintendent Joseph Burke before he left in July to lead Lee Countys schools. The rigorous course work emphasizes a foreign-language component, public service, critical thinking and interdisciplinary study. The worldwide curriculum standard, administered and overseen by the IB organization in Geneva, Switzerland, is divided into three units: The Primary Years Programme for students kindergarten through fifth grade; the Middle Years Programs for students sixth through 10th grade; and the Diploma Programme for upper classmen. Theres also 150 hours of public service and a 4,000word research essay, and all IB Diploma Programme students have to take a class called Theory of Knowledge, a discussionbased class that explores the underlying concepts and interconnectedness of various academic topics.

The person hired for the job comes from a fourth-generation Key West family and happens to be the sister of a recently appointed FKAAboard member. The fact that Christie L. Martin, who will make $49,816 annually, is related to board member Brian Barroso was never a consideration, FKAAexecutives said this week.She simply was best, said FKAAInternal Compliance Auditor Timothy Esquinaldo, who tapped Martin as his new executive assistant.On Aug. 11, Gov. Rick Scott appointed Barroso, a bank manager, to the board. Martin previously worked for the FKAAfrom 1998 to 2005, as an assistant in the Human Resources office and in the water utilitys executive office. She left the FKAAin 2005 to work for the Monroe County School District, where she assisted the chief financial officer and construction managers.Christies resume speaks for itself. She was by far the most qualified, Esquinaldo said. Im very familiar with her work and what she can do.We need a self-starter and she shot out of the cannon on that, Esquinaldo said. She can take initiatives and run with them.

Hes charged with three counts of fraud, two counts of forgery, grand theft and possession of stolen property. According to city police, the checks were cashed around Dec. 1, 2010, at the Real Deal Pawn Shop on North Roosevelt Boulevard. The checks, one each for $5,000 and $1,800, were issued to Ernesto Macias by the Gulf Coast Claims Facility, set up to process claims of financial damage related to the April 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Police reports say Perez helped Macias file his claims, the basis for which isnt spelled out in the reports.This past April, Macias became concerned because his tax forms reflected the income, which he never received. So he called First State Bank, where he banks, and found out the checks were cashed. When Macias told bank officials heCops:$6,8000 worth of them bogusly cashedBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comCRIME FRONT PEREZMillions nearly lost for no paperworkFor two years, the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District didnt file paperwork guaranteeing that money deposited in outside bank accounts was insured. One of the three banks the district used for deposits almost went under and is now under new ownership. The districts chief financial officer now says that taxpayers could have lost as much as $12 million if bank failed. Martin Waits was the districts chief financial officer during the two years the district didnt file the Public Depositor Annual Report, 2009 and 2010. Those reports go to Floridas chief financial officer. Sal Zappulla, the districts current CFO, filed the report this year. He said the districts money is now insured but added his concern that public funds were not guaranteed during those two years when banks were failing at high rates nationwide. If any of these banks failed, and the [Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.] did not find another bank to bail them out, the district would have been out of luck, Zappulla said. I can understand how Marty would have missed it, but what else is not right? Ive not been here even a year yet and Im uncovering things. Under state law, banks that hold public entities money are considered public depositors and must keep $1 in reserves for every taxpayer dollar deposited.

Jack Carlson, 37, faces charges of reckless driving, fleeing and eluding police, hit and run, and filing a false police report. Deputy Becky Herrin says Carlson, who runs Two Conchs Charters and is part owner of Big Time Bait and Tackle, pulled out of the Dions Quik Mart at U.S. 1 and 62nd Street about 4 a.m. and headed north behind Deputy Nicholas Abroe. Abroe pulled off the road but then got back on after Carlson reportedly started speeding after no longer being behind Abroe. Abroe tried pulling Carlson over but Carlson sped up, reaching speeds of at least 100 mph, Herrin said. He ran a red light turning at 107th Street, sideswiping a parked gray Chevrolet Trailblazer. Abroe lost him but later, the damaged Corvette was found behind Big Time Bait and Tackle, near Vaca Cut. Several hours later, Herrin, said, Carlson showed up at the Marathon substation and wanted to report his car stolen. Detectives didnt buy his story, and he was arrested.

Alittle while ago we had a superintendent telling us were going to be an IB district, Dick said Now we have another superintendent [Jesus Jara] who realizes we dont have the money, so were holding it back. It would take more than $100,000 per year to maintain just the Diploma Programme, which requires study in language, second language, experimental sciences, arts, math and computer science, and individuals and societies. Last fall, teachers began receiving training in the IB program, funded by state and federal grants, culminating in the June notification that all three public Keys high schools could start billing themselves as official IB candidate schools. In the past, Dick criticized Burke for launching unrealistic and unsustainable programs, referring to them as resume builders. Similar to the planned IB rollout, Burke touted a three-year deal with the United Teachers of Monroe that switched from tenure-based pay to performance pay, making Monroe only the second district in the state to adopt that model. Now, Jara has had to push back for at least a year the transition to performance pay due to budget restrictions. Effort droppedFrom Schools,1Ahadnt cashed them, the bank froze Real Deals account. Thats when Real Deal staff called police.From a report prepared by Detective Janeth Calvert: Macias stated that if the FedEx envelope came to his residence, Perez might have taken the envelope without his permission because he knows Perez tracks the documents on the computer.With the checks in hand, Perez admitted to police, He became desperate because he [needed] the money, so he went to Miami and got a fictitious identification card, with his picture and Maciass personal information on it, from someone in Hialeah, then went to Real Deal to cash the checks. Perez told police that Macias had agreed to pay him $4,000 for his help filing the claims. Perez stated that after he cashed the checks, he gave the money to Macias and that Macias did not give him any money. Macias stated he had no knowledge of the checks or money.Perez turned himself in after police obtained an arrest warrant signed by county Judge Wayne Miller.Since the BPdisaster, which poured around 200 million gallons of oil into the gulf, Monroe County residents have filed more than 9,000 claims, yielding more than $140 million in payments.Fraud chargedFrom Scam,1A money are in fact public depositors. Not filing the paperwork technically means failed banks arent accountable to reimburse an entitys money, Zappulla said. If the bank had failed, the district would have no recourse. The wastewater districts deposits during the time annual reports were not filed were held at First State Bank, Community Bank and TIB Bank. The latter was in danger of going out of business before it was bought earlier this year by a holding company and renamed Capital Bank. Thomas Dillon, the sewer districts attorney, said if TIB wasnt absorbed, its failure could have meant millions of dollars in taxpayer money was lost forever. TIB did fail, Dillon said. We didnt lose any deposits, but there was a possibility that one or more of our deposits were at risk. Waits said hes not sure if he filed the reports or not: To be honest, its been a year, and I dont know if I did or didnt. I cant remember. He said its possible the banks themselves filed the reports to the state CFO. Something says that this was a service the banks provided for the district? Waits wrote in an e-mail to Dillon. But Don Stanford, a financial specialist with the Division of Treasury, said in an e-mail to Zappulla that the wastewater district has not filed a Public Depositor Annual report to the chief financial officer for the years 2009, 2010 or 2011. Zappulla said he knew before receiving the email that he had to file the report, and he submitted it before deadline, which was Wednesday.Deposits at riskFrom Sewer,1A this week from FKAA attorney to executive director, said Martin was his first assistant when he joined the utilitys legal office in 2003. I never got any calls from any of our board members on this, Esquinaldo said. I know rumors happen but this process has been 100 percent transparent. Esquinaldo said his office had been seeking an assistant for the last six or seven years and the position was added to the budget this year. Five of the 175 applicants were interviewed for the position, and three of the finalists had previous employment with the utility, Esquinaldo said.In an unrelated personnel matter, the FKAAboard on Tuesday voted to pay $45,000 in a settlement with a former employee. FKAA board member David Ritz said the board had to hold our noses and go forward with the deal to avoid an expensive legal battle.Irma Boveda, a customer-service manager from 2006 to last June, appealed her dismissal on grounds that she did not receive two required annual reviews.Zuelch said paying the settlement would be preferable to contesting Bovedas appeal to the county Career Service Council. If a decision by the council went against the FKAA, Zuelch told board members, the utility could be liable for back pay and attorneys fees, and may have to put Boveda back on staff.Rumors happenFrom FKAA,1A Internal riff growsE-mails obtained this week show an increasingly hostile relationship between the general manager of the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District and its chief financial officer. Communications between Margaret Blank, head of the district, and Sal Zappulla, the CFO, reveal Blanks frustration with Zappulla over his continued complaints about his predecessor. In a Nov. 18 e-mail, Zappulla said he inherited a mess from former CFO Martin Waits when taking over for him almost a year ago. Zappulla was referring in large part to the states recent notification that the sewer district hadnt filed necessary reports since 2008 that guarantee its money deposited in outside bank accounts is insured should those institutions fail. Waits would have been the one who should have filed that paperwork. This is a serious issue. The state has documented in writing the report was not filed for two years, Zappulla wrote. Blank defended Waits, citing his continued work with the district, including his recent efforts helping to secure a $10 million lowinterest State Revolving Fund loan to pay back a higher-interest bridge loan. She accuses Zappulla of blaming Waits for your own lack of progress. As I told you before, schedule your work. Make a plan. Work the plan. Learn your job. Stop complaining. Quit the drama, Blank wrote in a Nov. 18 email to Zappulla. Zappulla wrote back that if the two were ever going to work together in harmony, you are going to have to put yourself in my shoes and realize just how difficult it is to have this job with no prior tribal knowledge available to me. To this, Blank responded, I have put myself in your shoes. In fact, Ive carried quite a bit of your load ... Im moving forward and youre stuck in the past. I dont want to be in your shoes anymore. If I stay in your shoes, Ill still be complaining five years from now without having accomplished anything. That just isnt acceptable to me. Zappulla was formerly budget director for Monroe County. Then-County Administrator Tom Willi fired him in October 2007. Zappulla appealed, then received a $147,700 settlement from the county in April 2008.By DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comKEY LARGO SEWER BOARDE-mails show no harmony with Zappulla,Blank

Boat thief jailed againAformer Key Largo boat captain who avoided prison on charges from a foiled boatsale scam was arrested again on four warrants this week.Benjamin W. Garrison, 32, of Orlando was booked into the Monroe County Detention Center on Monday and remained there on Friday, no bond allowed on two probation-violation charges. Bonds on two counts of failure to appear in court total $100,000.In September 2010, Garrison pleaded guilty in Monroe County Circuit Court to third-degree grand theft after he sold a $92,000 boat that didnt belong to him.According to court records, in June 2010, Garrison borrowed the 33foot HydraSports boat from an acquaintance, then agreed to sell the boat to a buyer. The actual owner knew nothing of the deal.Garrison accepted a $2,500 deposit but the buyer became suspicious and alerted the Sheriffs Office. When Garrison later met the buyer at a Key Largo restaurant to complete the sale, he was arrested.Garrison confessed and reached a plea agreement that placed him on two years of probation with mandatory substance-abuse testing. The boat was never lost and money that was exchanged for a down payment was returned, said Assistant State Attorney Colleen Dunne, who prosecuted the case. Garrison was arrested three times for drunk driving from 2004 to 2008.Theres no bond for Garrison on 4 warrantsUPPER KEYSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org GARRISONNEWS BRIEFSBenefits requirementspark federal suitAdvocates for the unemployed and a Miami job placement center filed a federal administrative complaint earlier this week alleging Floridas unemployment compensation program is inaccessible to people with special needs.The Miami Workers Center filed the complaint, asking the U.S. Department of Labor to investigate the program.

News Service of Florida Despite protest, sidewalk comingMuch to the chagrin of many residents, Key West city staff will move forward with putting in a sidewalk on Virginia Street that will effectively eliminate parking spaces deemed non-compliant with city code. The 5-foot-wide sidewalk, planned to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, will run on the north side of Virginia between Windsor Lane and Varela Street, with the exception of the 800 block, where it will be on the south side.Based on a presentation from city Senior Project Manager Doug Bradshaw, there are 51 parking spots 21 of which are legal; after the $1.87 million construction, funded by a federal grant, there will be 40 legal spaces. Amajor problem on the street, Bradshaw said, is encroachment on public property for private use; in some instances, public spots have signs that label them private and threaten violators with having their vehicle towed. Thats city property, Bradshaw said. That should be public parking but obviously people arent going to park there with the threat of towing. Basically, thats utilizing public land for private use.He said spots within 30 feet of intersections would be removed and sidewalks could be routed around existing trees.Commissioner Teri Johnston, whose district contains part of the affected neighborhood, passionately supported the need to make not just Virginia Street, but the whole city, ADA-complaint and safe for pedestrians and bicyclists, citing a city core value of residential safety.We do have to change the mindset of people. Ive listened to every single presentation here [Tuesday] evening and it does gear around parking. Are we really that type of society that were going to force people out into an active lane of traffic to walk this community so we save an illegal parking spot? Are we really there? Alifelong Virginia Street resident, Ashish Soni called the notion of gaining parking spaces smoke and mirrors. Youre gaining 40 legal spaces but youre losing other spaces. If you look around all of Key West, if we did legal parking spaces everywhere, wed lose half the parking. I am really vehemently opposed to this project and I really dont think its going to help the neighborhood at all. Commissioners didnt reach a consensus at the specially called meeting where the discussion took place.The construction had already been approved but Commissioner Clayton Lopez wanted to undo that, halting all expenditures. He proposed a delay of the project, which failed with a 3-3 vote. Commissioner Mark Rossi was absent and commissioners Billy Wardlow and Tony Yaniz sided with Lopez; Johnston, Mayor Craig Cates and Commissioner Jimmy Weekley voted to move forward with construction.Next Johnston proposed OKing the project yet again, yielding the same vote. Then Lopez returned to his original suggestion, stopping all work, and was met with the same 3-3 tally. City Manager Jim Scholl interpreted it like this: Since the motions failed I mean, the project is previously approved we havent said the project is terminated so, in my opinion ... we go forward with the project.Construction will remove illegal parkingBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYCity staff is moving forward with constructing a sidewalk on Virginia Street between Windsor Lane and Varela Street.There are 30 illegal parking spots on the street,many of which cause vehicles to obstruct the drive lanes of the two-way residential street.Lobbyists lined up in gambling fightThe only winners so far in the effort to allow luxury resort casinos in South Florida which has widespread implications for every form of gambling in the state are lobbyists.Gambling groups from across the nation have spent millions on outside lobbyists since July in preparation for a legislative session that will be dominated by the debate over destination resort casinos and their impact on everything from Internet cafes, pari-mutuel race tracks, video gaming vendors and the Seminole Tribes casinos.New Rochelle, N.Y., resident John Van Lindt holds the only pari-mutual gambling permit in the Florida Keys and has express interest in opening up an off-track betting operation in Key West. And the owners of Jasper, Fla., Hamilton Jai Alai have considered opening a fronton in the Keys.Gambling businesses and anti-gambling groups have spent up to $2.6 million on lobbyists in the third quarter of this year, according to recently released lobbying financial disclosure forms. There are very few lobbying firms in Tallahassee that do not have a client with skin in the game.The big spenders this quarter were casino developers like Genting Americas, which spent up to $430,000 on lobbyists in the quarter ending Sept. 30 in preparation for a fight to get legislative approval to build a large resort casino in Miami that it is calling Resorts World Miami.Following is total spending for gambling lobbying in the third quarter:Destination resort casino operators: Between $506,005 and $715,979Internet cafes: Between $80,000 and $99,998Horse and dog breeders and associations, kennel clubs, jai alai players: Between $100,012 and $319,979Pari-mutuel race tracks: Between $330,008 and $599,973Game and software vendors: Between $550,003 and $689,988Seminole Tribe and tribe associations: Between $110,001 and $179,993Anti-casino groups: Between $10,003 and $49,996 Whether any of this spending translates into results remains to be seen. After up to $4.6 million was spent on gambling lobbying in the first six months of the year, an attempt to pass a destination resorts bill fell apart.

( N o p u r c h a s e n e c e s s a r y ) Feds taking overformerco-op buildingTwo federal Department of Homeland Security agencies are moving into the former Florida Keys Electric Cooperative building in Tavernier. The 8,300-square-foot building at mile marker 91.6 oceanside will house agents with Homeland Securitys Investigative Division and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Marine Unit, said Special Agent Leo Morales, head of Homeland Securitys South Florida investigative office. Theyre now housed in an Islamorada office. Tob Trickey, chief financial officer with Hoover Properties in Tampa, which owns the building, said it will be significantly renovated, but mostly from the inside. Additions to the outside will include heavy landscaping and a 6-foot wrought-iron security fence around the parking lot, which has around 30 spaces. He said the outside of the building will get a facelift to what he calls a Keys look. This will not be an institutional-looking building Trickey said, adding that he hopes the building is ready for move-in by June 1. Hoover Properties specializes in buying buildings and renting them to federal agencies, Trickey said. The company bought the building in May for $1.45 million, according to Monroe County Property Appraiser Office records. The electric co-op moved out of the building and into its new facility on the bayside of U.S. 1 in 2009. Morales said the building will be used mainly as an administrative facility for the two agencies. Suspects and illegal aliens will be processed in the building and there will be holding cells, but Morales said it is not an overnight holding facility. All who are processed there will be immediately moved to other sites, he said. Trickey also stressed that the building is not a jail. Nobody will be staying there overnight. The current entrance on U.S. 1 will be closed and there will be an entrance on Sunrise Drive and an exit on North Sunrise Drive, Trickey said. The project is likely to meet with some opposition from local residents. Jerry Wilkinson, president of the Historical Preservation Society of the Upper Keys, said turning the building into a federal law enforcement facility is out of character for the historic district of Tavernier. The issue is the topic of a Dec. 5 meeting of the Monroe County Historic Preservation Commission at 2 p.m. at the Tavernier firehouse, 151 Marine Ave., off mile marker 92 oceanside. The five-member board determines if a buildings architecture and landscaping meet certain criteria to fit in with specific Keys historical districts. Customs and Border Protection also maintains an office and inmate holding area in Marathon and one in Key West. The Dec. 5 meeting is open to the public.

Lower millage if tax vote fails?Much has been made of the financial damage the Monroe County School District would incur if a Jan. 31 referendum allowing the transfer of $9.8 million from capital to operating accounts doesnt pass. However, if the measure does fail, Keys property ownerstax bills could decrease slightly while district finances would have to be slashed for the second straight year. Superintendent Jesus Jara has said hes already planning for at least a $4 million budget deficit for the fiscal year that starts July 1 and that includes counting on the $9.8 million transfer to operating expenses. The current budget is $80 million down about $9 million from last year. The account transfer would be valid for four years. The money is raised through a .5 mill levy, which is 50 cents per $1,000 of assessed taxable property value. If voters dont approve the move, the School Board would have the option of killing the capital tax or raising it as high as 1.5 mills. Board member Robin Smith-Martin broached the subject at a Tuesday board organizational meeting, and clarified his point on Friday.If the referendum doesnt pass, theres the possibility of a decrease in millage levied as a result, he said, adding the caveat that a failed referendum would only harm students in the classroom.Board Chairman John Dick said if the referendum fails, there would be a need to raise capital money to pay for infrastructure related to the consolidation of schools, and to purchase equipment that could replace personnel. Smith-Martin said thats true, but the expenses probably would not correspond to the money raised through a maxed-out capital millage. Itd definitely need to be scrutinized to develop a potential millage because the uses of the capital money are limited. Theres not a need to maximize the capital millage but we may need to adjust it to compensate. Dick said introducing into the dialogue the notion of lower taxes through a failed referendum does not serve the districts goal of obtaining voter support for the capital transfer.That is being irresponsible, he said, and I think thats an attempt to sabotage the half mill. We could change the capital millage down to nothing but no board member came forward and said that.But it wouldnt do anything for classroom cutsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS SMITH-MARTIN Court may rule on school standardsAsharply divided appellate court has rejected a request from state officials to block a lawsuit alleging public school funding and policies fail to meet quality requirements set by the Florida Constitution. The 1st District Court of appeal, in a rare ruling by all 15 judges, also asked the Florida Supreme Court on Nov. 16 to decide if the Constitution provides sufficient standards for a court to decide those issues and provide relief. The majority certified that question as a matter of great public importance. The 8-7 ruling came in a lawsuit by four parents or guardians and two students from Duval and Pasco counties as well as two advocacy groups: Citizens for Strong Schools and Fund Education Now. Former House Speaker Jon Mills, one of the plaintiffslawyers, was pleased although it was a close call. As I think some football coaches say, its still a win. It needs to get to the Supreme Court and thats good. Mills was optimistic the justices will take the case.ADepartment of Education spokeswoman said the agency doesnt comment on pending litigation. Spokeswomen for Attorney General Pam Bondi, Senate President Mike Haridopolos and House Speaker Dean Cannon said their offices were reviewing the decision. The lawsuit claims the state hasnt lived up to a constitutional requirement for a uniform, efficient, safe, secure and high quality system of free public schools.Besides funding cuts in recent years, the suit cites underpaid and under-qualified teachers, elimination of funding for a seventh period and summer school, violence on school grounds, low graduation rates and testing requirements that allegedly have reduced quality.Appeals judges kick lawsuit to TallahasseeAssociated PressEDUCATION
Many fear the large predators but a healthy shark population helps keep the marine world balancedThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission should take a bow for living up to the conservation in its name. Its decision in Key Largo on Nov. 23 to add four shark species to the list of sharks under protection in state waters should be instructive for other states and national and international regulators. Sharks may not be the kind of fuzzy-wuzzy animals that nearly beg for shelter in the publics arms. Large predators with their potential menace to humans long have posed a thrilling challenge for hunters and fishermen. Sepia photos of early tourist-anglers show just how long Floridas economy has benefited from the impact of its bountiful large-species marine life. But eliminate the large predators, and smaller ones survive in larger numbers to wreak havoc on their prey. Consider the scalloped hammerhead shark, one of the four that will be protected beginning in January. Despite 1992 restrictions on the number any boat can land, its population has decreased by 80 percent in recent years, down to less than half of what federal authorities consider a sustainable level.Meanwhile, the rays and other creatures that the scalloped hammerhead eats have been free to gorge on bivalves that people treasure such as bay scallops, oysters and clams. The balance of nature admits to no free lunch.Others on the new list are smooth and great hammerheads and tiger sharks, joining 23 other species. Although some anglers do eat shark despite some difficulties in preparing it and a 2000 federal law banning fishing only for shark fins, the shark fishery also includes a ban on anglers seeking large sharks as trophy kills. So these restrictions do not take food from the mouths of babes. Because Florida functions as a boudoir for breeding sharks and nursery, the FWCs action should have a sizeable impact on the speciesrecovery, which could take 10 years or more. Just as important is the commissions decision to educate anglers on how to release any shark caught without killing or damaging it. If the commission follows through with that education program and with strong enforcement, it will set a standard for other fisheries regulators and ensure the survival of these species and the species that depend on the chain of predators for their own survival. With 2,276 miles of tidal shoreline, Florida has a vested interest in sharks and all things marine.

Despite claims being made, SB 818/HB 597 does not force the transfer of unwanted strays to nonprofit animal rescue organizations. The Florida Animal Rescue Act simply would require that shelters maintain a registry of animal rescue groups that are willing to accept animals that would otherwise be killed; would provide eligibility criteria for rescue groups desiring to be on the registry; would provide criteria under which an animal control agency or animal shelter may reject an applicant for the registry or remove a participant from the registry; and would provide reporting requirements.Nowhere in the bill does it state that rescue groups must take animals from a shelter, nor does it state that shelters must give animals to any particular rescue group. It simply mandates collaboration.Instead of supporting commonsense legislation that will save lives, save taxpayer money and mandate private-public partnerships, some opponents are misrepresenting the bills contents and purpose. Here is why: Astatewide survey of rescue groups across Florida found that 63 percent of nonprofit rescue organizations have had at least one Florida state shelter refuse to work collaboratively with them and then turn around and kill the very animals they were willing to save. The most common reason given was shelters either not having a policy of working with rescue groups or being openly hostile to doing so. In addition, 45 percent of survey respondents said they are afraid to complain about inhumane conditions or practices at Florida shelters because if they did complain, they would not be allowed to rescue animals. And 81 percent of rescue groups that have tried to work with more than one shelter said that different shelters have different rescue access policies; this creates inefficiency and limits the number of animals that can and should be saved. It makes no sense for taxpayers to spend money to kill animals when rescue groups are willing and able to save them at private expense. If passed, this legislation would set statewide standards for rescue group access and make it illegal for a shelter to kill an animal when a qualified nonprofit rescue organization is willing to save that animal. State Sen. Michael Bennett and Rep. Joseph Abruzzo should be congratulated and supported for introducing this important lifesaving legislation based on best practices from around the country.Bill LeFeuvre No Kill Nation Inc. Deerfield BeachMixed emotions for veteranAs a former naval aviator and veterans-rights advocate, I want to share some mixed feelings I had during our Key Largo Veterans Day ceremony. All the usual suspects were in attendance. Dexter Lehtinen, a wounded and decorated Vietnam combat veteran, gave an emotional description of some wartime experiences. His faltering words gave evidence to the longterm toll war takes on our warriors.My companion at the event was a middle-aged, physically disabled U.S. Army veteran. He received disfiguring injuries in 1988 in Kuwait from an early improvised explosive device while guarding the oil pipelines. The Army soldiers worked with much higher-paid civilian contract workers. He received no Purple Heart for his severe injuries and harbors few animosities.Id like to remind us all of a couple of George Orwell quotes: Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in ones mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them. War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength. War against a foreign country only happens when the moneyed classes think they are going to profit from it. During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.During the moment of silence, I was thinking about the high price our veterans are paying for the conspiracy of silence from our corporate media, academia, churches, government and other institutions regarding issues such as Sept. 11, 2001 truth. The high price of silence we pay as co-conspirators trying to protect our various institutions from scrutiny is manifesting in the Penn State child-abuse scandal. It is but a metaphor for what may lie in store for many other revered institutions.The truth about 9/11 will continue to be disclosed and the implications debated. Understanding that the Saudi/Muslim terrorists may have been set up as the scapegoats will, I believe, be the political game changer. It will allow our collective consciousness to shift beyond the partisan, faith-based politics that have so divided our nation and the planet.Oh, I almost forgot. Say plunketyplunk 110 times representing the speed of the World Trade Center floors falling on each other in succession, i.e., the pancake collapse as the official story. If you can do this in 10n seconds (the time it took for the towers to collapse), your perspective prevails. Otherwise, the official story just doesnt add up. Its that simple.

David Rehor Key WestKey West girl puts face on premature-birth problemSixteen years ago, Megan McDonald and Jim Vernon of Key West were frightened new parents. Their daughter arrived way too early, at 28 weeks, and way too small, at 3 pounds, 5 ounces. McDonald, now 56, still shakes when she talks about the three long and scary months that tiny Anna spent at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Jackson Memorial Hospital, fighting for her life inside an incubator.She had a blood transfusion. Her hair was shaved in spots. Her body, less than half the size of an average newborn, endured 21 IVs and was hooked to monitors that constantly beeped. We called it the frog pond, Vernon said. Annas medical problems werent over when she came home. She and her parents have dealt with food allergies, brittle-bone disease and scoliosis that required wearing a back brace. But now, she is a thriving high school sophomore, with a room that doubles as a shrine to pop star Justin Bieber. For the past two years, Anna has made annual pilgrimages to the special place that saved her life. She brings bins full of preemie clothes and blankets that she passionately collects from thrift stores and buys with proceeds from her homemade greeting cards. Anna would like to become a neonatologist. Unfortunately for the welfare of newborns, the need for that profession is greater now than when she was a preemie. The first World Prematurity Day was held Nov. 17. The March of Dimes joined organizations in Europe, Africa and Australia to raise awareness and call on governments to do more about this growing problem. Worldwide, about 13 million babies are born prematurely each year. One million of them die, while the surviving 12 million preemies take their toll on families, medical systems and economies.There actually is more prematurity now than there used to be, said Dr. Shahnaz Duara, a University of Miami professor of pediatrics and medical director at the Level 4 Project New Born Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Holtz Childrens Hospital in Miami. While modern medicine has substantially increased the survival rates of preemies over the past two decades, the percentage of births that result in premature labor also has increased during that time. In Florida, the latest data put the rate at 13.5 percent.That rate led to the March of Dimes giving Florida a D in its 2011 Premature Birth Report Card. About 32,900 babies born each year in Florida, or 1 in 8 births, are premature (born at less than 37 weeks of gestation). Without enough time in the womb, the lungs, the babies are born with lungs, brains and organs that are not fully developed. For those who survive the birth, there can be a lifetime of medical problems, which include cerebral palsy, lung issues, learning disabilities and vision and hearing loss.Duara has been a neonatologist for 30 years. She cited several reasons for todays high prematurity rates, including the trend of women having children later in life and the growing success of in vitro fertilization, which often leads to multiple births. At one time there were two sets of quintuplets in the unit.Another big reason for prematurity is the rising cost of healthcare, which leaves many women without proper prenatal care. Floridas report card showed the highest risk was for uninsured women, at a whopping 28.5 percent. Thats even higher than for women who smoke, at 17.3 percent. Prenatal care is vital, Duara said. Once your baby is here, you cant go back and say I wish I hadnt smoked. I wish I had watched my blood pressure. I wish I had lost those 10 pounds before I got pregnant. Some premature births are easily preventable, caused by elected early induction of labor or c-sections. Some doctors think if a woman gets to 37 weeks thats good enough, Duara said. But even the best ultrasounds can be off by a week of two. And when research came out that said c-sections can protect against birth asphyxiation, it took the lid off everything. While babies born just a couple weeks early probably are not at risk of dying, they do end up in intensive care units and cost everybody something, Duara said. Jacksons neonatal intensive care unit, which was ranked the top center in Florida this year by U.S. News & World Report, has 40 high-tech incubators nicknamed the Beamers, because at $35,000 apiece, they cost about the same as a BMW. Premature babies usually have to stay in the hospital about as long as they would have been in the womb full term. So if a baby is born eight weeks premature, the hospital stay would be about eight weeks.Now healthy, she gives back to hospitalBy CAMMY CLARKcclark@MiamiHerald.com HEALTH CARE Tiger sharks are among the newly protected species.

Business Question: I know I need to start advertising more to bring in business, but with all the choices out there especially all this Internet stuff how I do know whats going to work for me? I dont have money to burn. Answer: I could tell you a foolproof way to guarantee that every dollar you spend is going to bring in business, but then Id be lying. Marketing is about trial and error. You are going to spend money on advertising that doesnt bring anyone in the door. You have to look at it the way Thomas Edison did when he failed 200 times to create the perfect incandescent light bulb: Each error helps you get closer to success while knowing what doesnt work. That said, you dont have to make 200 attempts to get the winning combination of advertising if you have a clear view of what youre trying to accomplish and a plan to get there. Answer yourself the following key questions:What is the mission of my business? If the first thing that comes to mind is making money, youve got a problem. Your business has to be about your customers and what you can do to help them.Your mission may be to provide products and services that will help your customers save money or use their time more wisely or give them a sense of enjoyment or accomplishment or entertain them or any number of other benefits. Whatever. But its got to be about them.What sets my product or service apart from the competition? Thats called a unique selling proposition. Figure out what it is. If you cant find one, create it.Who are my present and potential customers? How old are they? Are they mostly men or women? How much money do they make? Are they single or married?Where are my current and future customers? Are they local or international or somewhere in between? Where do they hang out? Are they on the Internet eight hours a day playing multiplayer games or are they down at the Moose Lodge tossing back brews and singing karaoke?Who are my top five competitors and how well are they doing? If they are suffering just like you are, maybe you need to find a new industry. On the other hand, if theyre doing really well, shop them. See what theyre doing differently and figure out how you can get a piece of that action.What is my marketing plan? Doing business without a marketing plan is like making a major road trip without a map or GPS. You may eventually end up where you want to be, but youll burn up a lot of gas and daylight getting there.What is my marketing budget? Some businesses set aside 10 percent of their revenues for marketing. Others budget way less or way more. It depends on the type of business you have and if youre new in the market. Either way, you need to have a budget. Where am I advertising now? How is it working for you? And how do you know? Youve got to track the effectiveness of what youre spending in order to stop doing what doesnt work to focus on what does.This is where you start. The next step is finding the right advertising vehicles to get you where you want to go.Jackie Harder owns Key Dynamics, a coaching, training and consulting company in Key Largo.Marketing must tie in to business planCOACHING JACKIE HARDER OFFICER INSTALLATIONRealtor P.Morgan Hill installs the Marathon and Lower Keys Association of Realtors201112 officers during the groups annual banquet Nov.12 at the Marathon Yacht Club.They are President Ava Bianchino,President-elect Dave Lunsford,Vice President Laura Hutt, Treasurer Lea Ruesch,Secretary Ron Widmaier and directors Stacie Kidwell,Deborah Van Stry,Jo Ann Cook,Kelly Willey,Sandy Tuttle,Donna Pezzi,Lynn Lucas and Gidget Jackson.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 8A Saturday,November 26,2011 State: Allow anchoring forlongerperiodsIn reviewing the first slate of rules submitted for a pilot anchoring zone, state officials told St. Augustine to triple the length of time boaters would be allowed to stay. At a Nov. 17 meeting in Key Largo, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said boaters in St. Augustines zone should be allowed to anchor for 30 consecutive days in any 45day period. St. Augustine officials originally proposed to limit anchoring in the test zone to 10 consecutive days in a 30day period. Monroe County, coordinating with the cities of Marathon and Key West, is among five statewide locations authorized by the Florida Legislature to create temporary anchoring and mooring zones outside of existing mooring fields to determine how such zones should be managed. Rich Jones, who runs the countys Marine Resources office, said before the Nov. 17 meeting that the FWC verdicts on the St. Augustine proposal will help guide development of the Keys program. Three areas of Keys waters Key West Harbor and Boca Chica Channel in the Lower Keys, and Key Largos Sunset Harbor are among areas considered for the local mooring program.Amain goal of the state program is to give the pilotprogram areas authority to oversee unsound boats that appear in danger of sinking and becoming derelict vessels.Owners often abandon broken-down boats, which become pollution problems or create hazards to navigation. Government programs to remove them lack sufficient money to address the problem. Many liveaboard boaters fear the pilot program provides a way for local governments to force them to abandon traditional anchorages. In September, Monroe County commissioners cautioned the countys Marine Resources administrator not to draft new heavy-handed rules for liveaboard or cruising boaters. The rules approved by St. Augustine include a stipulation that would ban boats that cannot get underway on their own from the test area. St. Augustine also proposes to ban anchoring on a shellfish bed and in channels of the San Sebastian River. If the St. Augustine City Commission agrees with the FWCs change, it would enact its regulations by the end of the year, according to the St. Augustine Record. Rules being considered for the Monroe County zones include requiring proof of septic-system pumpouts, and a measure to identify boats most at risk of sinking at anchor. The County Commission has yet to approve rules for the local program, which then must be submitted to the FWC for review. All five pilot anchoring programs statewide will expire in July 2014 unless the Legislature acts to extend them.St.Augustine already looks at test rulesON THE WATERBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org

The Dolphins with only two seniors, and with seven players seeing only three practices before the game took Westminster Christian to the brink, only to fall in overtime, 77-71, on their home court.Weve learned a lot from this game and I think that will help us out, coach Kevin Freeman said. Going into district, Florida Christian probably has the best team. Westminster is a good second. So to play this well against Westminster and be so close in the first game even the kids in the locker room, they were pumped up.The contest didnt start well for Marathon, which was down 20-10 at the end of the first quarter. But Dwayne Ellis, a senior along with Trevelle Beckford, stepped it up and scored 12 points in the second. Freshman Nelson Rojas added eight including two treys to help close the gap to 34-32 at the half. Marathon finally got the lead, 48-45, at the end of the third quarter thanks to seven points from Rojas and four from Beckford. Come the fourth quarter, it was nail-biting time, Freeman said: It was back and forth; no team had a lead larger than four. Late in the quarter, the Dolphins held a 62-61 lead, then the Warriors answered with a bucket to take over, 63-62. Then we answered and it put us up 64-63, Freeman said. But then we took a shot and we didnt need to take a shot. They came down and scored and were up by one, 65-64. Westminster hit another and it was 67-64 with just 16 seconds left.Thats when Beckford found an opening and knocked it down [with a threepointer] and tied the ballgame to send us to overtime.Marathon ran out of steam in OT, though, quickly falling four points behind and never recovering. We had to start fouling them, Freeman said. They went seven of eight in OTfrom the foul line to seal the victory. When all was said and done, Rojas finished with 20 points and two boards; Beckford with 21, eight rebounds and four assists; and Ellis with 22 points and six rebounds. He was 12 of 14 from the free-throw line. In my eight years of varsity coaching, I think this is the first time Ive had three players score 20 points, Freeman said. So we found our scorers. Were really relying on Trevelle and Dwayne. Hes a good post player. The more he gets in, the more confident hell get. The loss followed two preseason defeats, 89-44 to Ransom Everglades and 5328 to St. Brendan. Next is a Tuesday trip to Center of Life Academy in Miami for a 6 p.m. contest.Girls fallMarathons Lady Dolphins (0-4) are still looking for their first victory following a 48-25 loss to Westminster Tuesday.The heart is incredible. The girls never give up, coach Leslie Lindsey said. Even though were not as skilled, they drive for every loose ball.Marathon held it close, trailing 18-11 at the half, but ran into Westminster powerhouse Caitlin Charlton, who finished with 28 points. We couldnt shut her down, Lindsey said. She can shoot threes, she could drive to the hoop. For the Dolphins, freshman Johnisha Qualls led the scoring with eight points and also had three rebounds and three steals. Taja Hidalgo added six points and three steals, Gardine Raymond six points and four boards, Jessica Forest two points, Rosalia Parrado two points and Yailin Nieda one point.Were still playing eighthgraders, were still a young team, Lindsey said. We did a good job of controlling the ball [but] we need to learn how to defend the three-point shot.Marathon travels to Dade Christian on Tuesday for a 5 p.m. game, then heads to Palmer on Dec. 3.Hoops team falls in OT to WestminsterBy LARRY KAHNlkahn@keynoter.comMARATHON BASKETBALLHeritage shuts out Lady CanesAmerican Heritages powerhouse girls soccer team came to Coral Shores High in Tavernier with an undefeated record Wednesday and left the same way. Heritage-Plantations Lady Patriots (10-0-1), perennially a factor in the state championship chase, dispatched a shorthanded Lady Hurricane team, 8-0. Sometimes its a good thing to get whooped, said Cane head coach Arthur Paterson, who had to miss the game. It reminds everybody that even though weve won a couple games early in the season, we always have to play a disciplined game. Coral Shores was missing five starters to family travel during the weeklong Thanksgiving break against one of the most formidable teams the Lady Canes will see this season. It showed. Hurricane striker Jasmine Paterson played but a lack of offensive support left her alone going against a solid Patriot defense. The game featured Paterson playing against former Upper Keys youthleague teammate Haleigh Stremanos, leading scorer for the Patriots. Although the game nearly was postponed or scored as a scrimmage because of holiday conflicts, it wound up being played as a regular-season game. The Lady Canes visit Heritage in January. Coral Shores (2-1) tries to regain its form with a Monday trip to district rival Archbishop Carroll. The Lady Canes then travel to defending district champion Gulliver Prep on Thursday. In other Upper Keys prep soccer this week:Coral Shoresboys (23) lost a 4-1 decision Monday to Ransom Everglades. Nick Hortensi scored the lone Hurricane goal.

Sammie Egan scored twice in the comeback, including the late gamewinner, after the Eagles were down 2-0 at halftime. Alexandra Montagne scored the other goal. Jazmine Rivera and Abbey Lindholm made assists. The Eagles went into Thanksgiving at 2-2 after shutout losses to Palmer Trinity and Westminster Christian earlier this month.

Hallandale no test for Lady ConchsIt was no surprise to coach Scott Paul that his Key West High girls soccer team claimed an 8-0 mercy-rule road victory Tuesday over Hallandale.I assumed it would be that kind of game because the majority of their players are not nearly as experienced as ours and the quality of our play has improved, Paul said.The victory improved the Conchsrecord to 3-2 in 163Aand 5-3 overall. Key West scored seven goals in the first 12 minutes, starting with a penalty kick by Kendall Galvan. Lauren Schoneck made it 2-0, scoring on a cross from Caila DeAbreu. Schoneck than assisted on a Libby Isherwood goal, and then Isherwood popped in another goal to make it 4-0. Three more goals followed in rapid fashion the first by Devin Mitchell on a one-on-one opportunity, the second by Schoneck, and the third by Schonecks sister, Raquel, on a through-ball by Robyn DeRoche.Paul then inserted his reserves, who, for the rest of the first half, put on an unimpressive display of soccer. Theyre not ready for prime time as a group, he said.With some of the regulars back in to begin the second half, Galvan scored her second goal of the game in the first minute and the Conchs soon boarded the bus for home.The Conchs will face a stiff test at 6 p.m. Friday against district opponent Archbishop McCarthy in Fort Lauderdale.The Key West JVteam recently traveled to Coral Shores and defeated the Hurricanes, 6-1. Olivia Kennedy scored three goals for the Conchs.By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST SOCCERConchs up record to 3-3Despite injuries to key players, the Key West High School boys soccer team, under new coach Rob Eggers, is holding its own in the young season.The Conchs got their first District 16-3 victory 3-0 over Dillard High Monday in Fort Lauderdale, but lost Tuesday at Hallandale, 5-2.In the Dillard game, Justin Hamilton, Orion Jones and Aiden Mannix-Lachner scored for the Conchs. We played really well together, Eggers said. Our forwards tracked back to the ball and worked well with the midfielders.The Conchs, who took 24 players on the trip, then stayed overnight in a hotel courtesy of the teams booster club, which had not turned money over to the program at the beginning of the season. The hotel tab was $455, and the club also paid for meals and gave each player $20 in spending money.Tuesday, the team ran into fast, well-coached Hallandale, another district opponent. Trying to come back from a 2-0 halftime deficit, the Conchs got a goal from Kaemon Tomita a minute into the second half. After Hallandale scored to make it 3-1, Hamilton put in penalty kick to again cut the lead to a goal, but the Chargers eventually put the game away.The Conchs (3-3 overall, 1-3 in district) will play Port Charlotte at noon today at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium.By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST SOCCER

While licking is a natural behavior in a puppys litter, it sometimes continues into adulthood as a greeting, show of affection or a means of communication.If your dog is a compulsive kisser, the American Kennel Clubs Canine Good Citizen Director and animal behaviorist Mary Burch offers the following tips on how to help stop this behavior:Dont reinforce licking. Until you solve the problem, dont happily fuss over the dog as it gives kisses to greet you. In many cases, the licking problem began with the dog giving you kisses.Teach a new skill.Train your dog to do a new command that does not involve licking but does involve getting affection and attention from you. You can teach your dog to get your brush and then spend time brushing your dog when she completes the command. Brushing is also a great way for you to bond with your dog.Try redirecting the behavior. If your dog is a serious licker, try directing the behavior somewhere else, like going outside, throwing the ball around, or practicing some obedience skills. Its important to remember timing. You dont want to start a fun game with your dog while shes in the middle of licking that will simply reinforce the behavior you dont want.Take a time out. In serious cases, consider giving your dog a brief, twominute time out. If she licks you and wont stop, say no lick and take her to the other side of the room. Put her in a down-stay and do not give her attention for the two minutes having contact with you will reinforce the licking. After the time out, release your dog. If she starts to lick you again, repeat the process. Make sure that you still do plenty of positive activities and provide play and exercise with her.Compulsive behavior can be changedMiami HeraldOUR PETSTry directing the behavior somewhere else,like going outside,throwing the ball around,or practicing some obedience skills.

The 2012 season is to include six presentations, each representing different genres and cultures. The kickoff performance is scheduled for Jan. 16 as the Guy Lombardo Royal Canadians, led by Al Pierson, continue the tradition of one of the most listened to, talked about and imitated bands of all time. Todays orchestra includes in its program an occasional Lombardo-style arrangement of contemporary classic pop tunes. In addition, a musical tribute is planned as part of the January 2012 centennial anniversary of the completion of the Keyshistoric railroad. Additional performances include a piano, violin and cello concert Jan. 23 with Trio Solisti and a piano performance by Marina Lomazov set for Feb. 13. For a foot-stomping, hand-clapping good time, the Foothills Brass quintet is scheduled to perform Feb. 20. A17-year-old prodigy, Conrad Tao, brings his superstar talent to the stage March 5 with a repertoire of Mozart and more. The associations season finale is scheduled March 19, with the String Orchestra of New York City performing cherished classics and New World music.

I know that sounds strange so let me explain. The Women on the 6th Floor tells the story of an astute businessman, JeanLouis Joubert, played by the wonderful French actor Fabrice Luchini, who realizes that the comfortable routine that has been his life as long as he can remember has not really been much of a life after all. Sandrine Kiberlain plays his wife, Suzanne, a country girl who married into wealth and now spends her days doing nothing consequential.Jean-Louis lives in the same building that his parents and grandparents did, does the same job and uses the same offices that his father and grandfather did. Their two arrogant children are off attending boarding school, just as he did. He doesnt realize it, but he is trapped in a life of tradition. Like a horse wearing blinders, he has never looked outside his narrow field of vision and has no idea that there is any other way to live.But that all changes when he and his wife must replace the familys French maid of 30 years. After a one-day trial where, with a little help from her friends, she seems to be a cleaning whiz, the Jouberts hire Maria, just recently arrived from Spain.

Saturday,November 26,2011 7B Keynoter KeysNet.com Artist Lois Giffen has a roundabout way of seeing things and being seen, with exhibits of her work as far flung as Benghazi, Libya to Kota Kinabalu, East Malaysia.On Friday, Dec. 2, this world-traveler and her welded steel sculptures will be recognized at a reception from 6-9 p.m. hosted by Frangipani Gallery, 1102A Duval St., Key West. As part of the First Friday Art Stroll on Upper Duval, the gallery has assembled several of Giffens pieces for a special show that runs through Dec. 14.Her work has been featured at The Studios of Key West and in a two-person show with Martin Groffman at the Florida Keys Community College. She has shown her work in numerous group shows, and at Sculpture Key West.Geffen says she is happiest working in welded steel, which allows her to fuse love of color with three-dimensional form. She describes the goal as reaching balance, serenity, playfulness and joy.Giffen says she started painting at age 12 doing portraits of ancestors for family and friends. As a student artist, her first blue ribbon was awarded for a portrait of her grandfather, painted when she was 15 years old and still in high school. She went on to study art at the University of Chicago, graduating in 1951, and did three more years of graduate work with an emphasis on studying techniques of the old masters.After nearly 30 years living and working overseas, Giffen moved to the Florida Keys in 1988, where metal sculpture has become her passion.Her four decades as a plein air painter infuse her work with color, which Giffen says springs from the creative child within us. The whole purpose of artistic mastery is to allow that child to play.In addition to local exhibits and her new gallery show at Frangipani Gallery, the Marathon artists work has been collected worldwide. Shes had solo exhibitions in Benghazi and Tripoli, Libya; Sale, Australia; Kota Kinabalu, East Malaysia; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; and London, England. Earlier in her career as an artist, Giffen studied sculpture at Amersham College of Art in England. She does all her welding at Florida Keys Community College.She serves on the Advisory Board of the Florida Keys Council of the Arts and is a member of Artists in Paradise Gallery on Big Pine Key, and of the Lower Keys Artists Network.even demonstrate the hula.Last years gala featured Hollywood producer Jon Landau, whose credits include Avatar, the highest-grossing movie of all time, as well as Titanic. Landau now lives in Islamorada. Other memorable speakers at the Habitat gala have included former NFLplayers Mark Cooper of the Denver Broncos and Gary Dunn of the Pittsburgh Steelers (Dunn is also the owner of the Ocean View Lounge in Islamorada) and John Havlicek, National Basketball Association Hall of Famer. Since it began, the Habitat for Humanity gala has raised more than $1 million in cash and other donations, according to Amedeo DAscanio. Working with Habitat for Humanity has allowed us to give back in a significant way to the community that has given us so much, he adds. The mission of Habitat for Humanity is to build decent, affordable homes for those who lack adequate shelter.The owners get nointerest loans in return for giving back to Habitat through volunteer work. Amedeo, along with his brothers Tony and Franco, run the family enterprise, which got its start in 1960 when their parents began the business, which has expanded to include construction services, architecture, interior design and landscaping. This year, rather than motivational speeches, the organizers opted for more of a party atmosphere with live entertainment. Tickets cost $95, which is donated to Habitat for Humanity of the Middle Keys. The Winter gala is the largest single fund-raiser that Habitat holds in the Middle Keys.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 8B Saturday,November 26,2011 ings other Spanish maids on the sixth floor of the building (hence the movies title). In contrast to the luxury apartments they clean, the maids sleep in tiny cubicles with no hot water and a stopped-up communal toilet. One thing leads to another and Jean-Louis becomes the hero of the 6th floor. As he meets the other housekeepers, he discovers that the 6th floor has more life than the other five floors combined. The maids, despite their lot in life, are mostly happy women who stand together through thick and thin and aspire to better things. The Spanish ladies play guitar, sing and dance, cook mouth-watering dishes and live a gregarious life invisible to the rich apartment dwellers below. As we would expect, Jean-Louis falls in love. But not just with one of the women he loves them all. And when circumstances arise where he ends ups living on the 6th floor alongside the maids, he tells his horrified sons, Ive never been happier. This is the first time Ive had a room of my own. Where his life goes from there, and who ends up with who, Ill leave for the viewer to discover. The Women on the 6th Floor is a lovely movie that works because Luchini makes a sympathetic childlike hero, Kiberlain is good as a lost and confused wife and Natalia Verbeke, as Maria, is simply luminous. Pedro Almodovar regulars Carmen Maura, as Conception, and Lola Dueas, as the revolutionary Carmen, give excellent supporting performances and the cinematography, set design and costumes definitely made me feel like I was in 1960s Paris. There were a couple of things that bothered me a bit. The film is often condescending the maids welcome the bosspresence on their floor with only a perfunctory question and they accept his charity as if it were manna from heaven. And when Jean-Louis misinterprets a hired cooks unwanted advances towards a maid, his jealous reaction ultimately draws an apology from the maid, instead of the other way around. So I felt an undertone throughout the film that, no matter how generous and caring he is, Jean-Louis is and always will be a boss.But these minor elements dont spoil the movie. Its still a feel-good film that uses the fish-out-of-water theme to show that the price of love may be high, but its worth every penny. The writerdirector, Philippe Le Guay, grew up with a Spanish maid and his father was also a financial adviser. The maids are all played by Spanish actresses, some of whom didnt speak any French, and Luchini spoke no Spanish when filming began.This all helps to give the film a good sense of authenticity and makes the movie a charming experience and I highly recommend The Women on the 6th Floor.The camaraderie, zest for life and charm of the women on the 6th floor was so warm and inviting that I was ready to rush home and look up real estate in Spain.

The 7th Annual, this one features a 20-ton snow mountain, a pet parade, the Best Baked Goodie contest, and of course the Little Miss Sugar Plum Fairy contest. As if you didnt know already, this holiday spectacular is held at Founders Park, mile marker 87 bayside, where tropical breezes and palm trees give way at least for a little while to some North Pole magic. Organizers at the Islamorada Chamber of Commerce promise snowflakes for this years fest.A35-foot tall holiday tree comes with snow blowing from its branches. Atree lighting ceremony begins at 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2. And there will be the sound of carolers ringing through the air.Parents should make a list and remember to bring mittens and gloves for their kids. Thats because the Islamorada festival includes a man-made snow mountain and plenty of chances to learn what snow is all about (be careful of snowball fights).The outdoor amphitheater stage will be buzzing with live music and dance performances. The youngsters can compete in costume for the Little Miss Sugar Plum Fairy contest and the Mr. Gingerbread Man contest. Style points are awarded on originality and personality. Activities include the Santa Paws Pet Parade, which is open to any and all pets. Judging will be based on best-dressed party animal or those who perform the best tricks. And theres the Best Baked Goodie contest with Christmas cookies high on everyones wish list.Aholiday-themed bazaar will offer holiday shopping options from baked goods and gourmet baskets to gift items.Hand-painted ornaments donated by area artists will be on display for a silent auction. And this year there will be other kinds of artistry on display, including a Vino Village, where festivalgoers can sample gourmet foods and wines.What would a holiday festival be without a parade? Of course theres a parade, which gets underway at 7 p.m.This years theme, The Little Train That Could, is a tribute to Henry Flaglers railroad, which observes its 100th anniversary in January, 2012. Islamorada historian Irving Eyster will be the parades grand marshal. And the final float, bringing up the rear, will have a surprise guest (psst we hear it may be olSaint Nick himself).Admission to the festival is free, but visitors are asked to donate $5 for parking to help defray the cost of producing the 20-ton snow mountain.For more information, call the Islamorada Chamber 664-4503.Tree lighting, parade, carolers n more Dec. 2LAttitudes StaffISLAMORADALast years snow mountain brought lots of snow fallsas kids enjoyed the slippery slopes in Founders Park.
