Rick Scott, the Monroe County School District could see an additional $1.5 million in funding next year. Superintendent Jesus Jara told the Keynoter that the budget, which still has to be analyzed, tweaked and adopted by the state Legislature, would amount to around $110 in additional state funding for each Florida Keys student; the states current funding level is $6,230 per student. And while Jara lauded Scotts commitment to funding k-12 education, he said the planned $1 billion boost statewide still doesnt balance previous cuts, including $1.35 billion cut in the 20112012 fiscal year, which ends Sept. 30, 2012. Its replacing what has been cut the last three to four years, he said, but its still not getting us to the level we were a few years ago.Scotts plan earmarks $190 million of the total $1 billion to accommodate an estimated influx of 30,000 new public school students; $220 million helps compensate for a projected 3 percent decline in statewide property values.The average per-student allocation under Scotts plan will be $6,372 (an increase of $142) and total funding for Florida k-12 education is approximately $9.5 billion.The encouraging piece, Jara said, is that the governor is prioritizing education and I applaud him for his efforts. This is his top priority.Jara, along with all the other superintendents across the state, participated in a conference call with Scott this week.His message was that he will veto a budget, he will not sign a law, that does not support education, Jara said. In a prepared statement, Scott reiterated that position: Let me be clear about this education budget. I will not sign any budget into law that doesnt contain more state dollars for education than we have this year. I am absolutely committed to acting on what I have heard and prioritizing education funding in this budget.Governor releases preliminary state budget restoring some funding By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comOUR SCHOOLS PRICELESSPhoto by Tomoko RobertsFamous for its sunsets,Key West attracts plenty of shutterbugs vying for bragging rights on deepest colors and most interesting silhouettes.Tomoko Roberts earned plenty of bragging rights with this show of sails in the sunset taken off Key West.Note the cloud layer on the horizon,which adds to the painterly quality of this photograph.For more Keys photos,visit:www.KeysNet.com and click on Photos. Pigeon Key ramp closedThe historic Old Seven Mile Bridge has survived the latest state Department of Transportation inspection, but the aging wooden ramp connecting it to Pigeon Key hasnt. Monroe County announced Friday that the 73-year-old ramp is temporarily closed to all pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular traffic. The 2.2-mile bridge and landmark island are located off the west end of Marathon. Staff has been directed to get a proposal to do an engineering study as a first step to developing a repair design, county engineer Judy Clarke said. Clarke said a DOTconsultant performed the inspection of the county-owned ramp. The state agency manages the inspection of county bridges, she said. Were going to continue operating as normal, but without the ramp it makes it harder to continue our mission to provide environmental education and research on the island, Pigeon Key Foundation President Jason Koler said. Koler said while DOTfunded ferryboats are still operating out of Knights Key, the ramp being closed puts a burden on staff that used it and the bridge to reach mainland Marathon. It also prevents visitors from walking or biking to Pigeon Key. Thats whats going to affect the community most, Koler said. Meanwhile, DOT spokesman Brian Rick told the Keynoter that a state inspection of the Old Seven Mile Bridge was completed Nov. 5. We have not received the official inspection report yet but, based on preliminary feedbacks from the consultant, there are no major changes from previous inspections. We will continue to monitor the bridge condition to ensure the safety of the public, he said. The state has already closed the bridge to auto traffic and fishing, and closing it to pedestrians, skaters and bicyclists is a real possibility. Both Monroe County and the city of Marathon have endorsed nonprofit group Friends of Old Seven Inc., asAccess now limited to boat transitMARATHONSaunders sends strong signalState Rep. Ron Saunders, the House Democratic leader from Key West, says he will pursue the open District 39 state Senate seat if proposed redistricting maps are approved. If Im going to do it Im going to do it now, he told the Keynoter If it stays the way it looks Ill give it a strong consideration. We have the opportunity for the first time since the s to have someone from Keys in the House and Senate.The state Legislature is in the process of redrawing House and Senate boundaries, which it does every 10 years after each U.S. Census. District 39 includes Monroe County and parts of Broward, Collier, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties. Saunders said the proposed Senate maps remove areas of Palm Beach County and replace it with areas of Homestead in Miami-Dade County. He said it remains a minority access seat with a large African-American and Hispanic population, but one he feels he could win. State Sen. Larcenia Bullard cannot seek reelection because of term limits, but her son, state Rep. Dwight Bullard, declared on Nov. 30 that hell run for his mothers seat. Saunders already declared to seek reelection for a fourth consecutive term to the House. He said proposed map changes would have little affect on his District 120. Saunders said the five proposed maps released Tuesday by the House remove the Kendall area from District 120 and replace it with Homestead.

The time listed in Wednesdays Keynoter was incorrect.GETTING IT STRAIGHTCONTACT US NEWS BRIEFSStock Island arrest ThursdayJose Fernandez was the name the burglary suspect first gave police when he was arrested Thursday on Stock Island. But, law enforcement later found out hes used multiple alias and the suspect they arrested sits in jail and has been identified as Daniel Rodriguez, 30, of Stock Island. Thursday afternoon, Sheriffs Deputy Kim Trullender responded to reports a man had burglarized a car and was fleeing on foot down Suncrest Avenue. When the deputy arrived, the owner of a vehicle repair business was detaining a man he said he caught in the act of burglarizing a Lincoln Aviator parked at the business. The suspect, later identified as Rodriguez, could give no explanation as to why hed been inside the vehicle that did not belong to him. Police reported finding a large amount of change in his pocket. He was arrested for vehicle burglary as well as giving a false name to a law enforcement officer. Once at the jail, police discovered five outstanding warrants for writing bad checks. Hes been charged on those warrants and booked into jail. Montessori school poised to grow?Having earned the designation of a high performing charter school, Treasure Village Montessori in Islamorada now has even more autonomy from the Monroe County School District. That label was given to the school by the Florida Consortium of Public Schools based on receiving an Agrade from the state Department of Education for the past four consecutive years. With the high performing designation, Treasure Village can now submit quarterly rather than monthly financial reports; increase student enrollment once per school year by up to 15 percent; add grade levels; and have their charter contract automatically renewed for 15 years. Our faculty and students-as well as dedicated TVM parents and supporters-have worked hard to achieve this status, Principal Kelly Astin said. Charter schools are tuition-free public schools that are not bound by the rigorous testing and curriculum standards imposed on traditional public schools; charters receive state funding that is channeled through the applicable school district, which keeps 5 percent as an administrative fee. Now, with the high performing designation, Treasure Village can keep more of that state funding as the districts administrative fee drops to 2 percent. Treasure Village now serves 200 students from kindergarten through 8th grade. There are six charter schools in the Florida Keys, with nearly 1,000 students. Collectively, they received $6,272,031 in district funding. As for expansion, Vice Principal Kelly Mangel said that the school is physically at capacity. We pretty much have maxed out our building at this time, she said, adding that there were no immediate plans to expand the facility or add new grade levels. Superintendent Jesus Jara acknowledged that it meant a small financial blow to the district, but lauded Treasure Villages accomplishment. Its a good thing for the district and its a good thing for Treasure Village, he said. Jara also pointed out that as charter enrollment in the Keys continues to grow, theres a need to better promote traditional schools to parents. Weve got to do a better job marketing the success we have, he said. Treasure Village was chartered in 1998 and started out with 60 k-3 students; located at mile marker 86.7, the school is housed in the former Art McKees Museum of Sunken Treasure.High performing status brings more state fundsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comOUR SCHOOLS Redistricting: Keys could lose IleanaProposed redistricting maps revealed by the Florida House this week could find Monroe County with a new member of Congress as its Washington D.C. representative.Under several redistricting plans unveiled Tuesday in Tallahassee, the Keys could be shifted into a new Congressional District 26, covering western MiamiDade County and the Keys. If approved by the full Florida Legislature this winter, that plan could prevent local residents from voting for U.S. Rep. Ileana RosLehtinen, who has represented the Keys since 2002. Another congressional redistricting plan issued by the Florida Senate keeps the Keys in District 18, represented by Ros-Lehtinen.I sincerely hope that I will be able to keep Monroe County in the new Congressional District that is being formulated in Tallahassee, Ros Lehtinen said in a Friday email to The Keynoter It has been a true honor to represent the citizens of the Keys during these difficult economic times, she continued. The Congressional lines are drawn by state legislators, so I have little say over the process.Federal law requires state legislators to redraw congressional districts every 10 years, based on the latest U.S. Census.Most of the House plans align the Keys with a portion of Miami-Dade now represented by U.S. Rep. David Rivera, a first-term congressman. As far as all these maps, the Florida Legislature is still asking for public input, said Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Harry Sawyer Jr. It will be a while before this thing is settled.State Rep. Ron Saunders agreed, All weve seen are the first maps, not the last maps. The good thing is that there now are maps so we can start making adjustments.Florida House District 120, represented by Saunders, likely will not change notably. The Keys Florida Senate seat could see notable boundary changes. Saunders said regardless of how the Keys congressional district changes, theres still about a 90-percent chance that its going to be won by a Republican. If thats the case, personally I would just as soon it be Ileana, he said. Its important to have somebody who cares about the Keys.Ros-Lehtinens current Florida Congressional District 18 essentially runs from the Little Havana area down the east coast, including the Keys.REDISTRICTINGBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com

The occasion will be celebrated with a party in his honor.www.reganinsuranceinc.com Regan Insurance AgencyThree Decades Despite continuing objections from area residents, city crews removed two large trees on Virginia Street in advance of construction that will see sidewalks installed along city right-of-way.The Key West City Commission this week approved a related project, extending the residential parking program to the affected Old Town neighborhood. The $165,000 federallyfunded project, set for a Jan. 31 completion date, removes 30 illegal parking spots that encroach on the drive lanes of the two-way street, bringing 40 spaces compliant with city code; and installs five-footwide sidewalks in line with mandates of the Americans with Disabilities Act.The new sidewalks are planned for the north side of Virginia between Windsor Lane and Varela Street, except in the 800 block, where the sidewalk will be on the south side. The residential parking permit program will cover the 800 to 1500 blocks of Virginia as well as the 1000 and 1100 blocks of Margaret, Packer, Grinnell and Watson streets. Folks with Monroe County license plates who obtain a $6.25 decal from city staff can park in any spaces labeled residential.Parking Manager John Wilkins said at the Tuesday commission meeting that a lot of the parking stress was related to two restaurants in the area that are popular with tourists.Well do the best we can, he said. The effort here is to make sure that people are not inconvenienced by non-residents parking in their neighborhood.Watson Street resident Cindy Gay told commissioners she didnt necessarily mind the sidewalks, but didnt care for how the project was vetted in the neighborhood.Im not opposed to the sidewalks, I just think were not addressing this in the proper manner and its not coming through correctly for the residents. Gary Ek, another neighbor, objected to the removal of a Royal Poinciana tree and a large mahogany tree, which was begun Wednesday by Community Services Department crews, and the demolition of a number of private fences that encroach on the citys property. We were never really against the project, we were against losing the property and the trees.Commissioner Billy Wardlow, who ultimately voted against the residential parking program extension, wanted staff to put a stop to the project in an attempt to mitigate residentsobjections. Commissioner Mark Rossi and Tony Yaniz were absent.Sidewalks proceed despite objectionsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Saturday,December 10,2011 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com Increased state funding is always a positive, but does little to curb the bleak fiscal outlook for public education in Monroe County.District staff is looking to cut $5 million from the coming budget cycle, which follows on the heels of more than $9 million in cuts implemented this year. And, officials worry about a scenario that would trigger more than $14 million in cuts if voters do not approve a referendum Jan. 31 that continues a shift of capital dollars to operating accounts.The district levies 50cents per $1,000 of assessed property value for that halfcent tax, which generates roughly $9.8 million for the general fund. Scotts total state spending plan presented on Wednesday stands at $66.4 billion, a 4.6 decrease from the budget thats in place now.Big savings identified by the governor come in reducing Medicaid payments to Floridas hospitals and cuts in state employment ranks.More cuts at $5 millionFrom Budget,1Athe lead organization in raising funds to save the bridge. Rick told the Keynoter that a $16 million estimate to refurbish the bridge, built as part of the Florida East Coast Railway some 100 years ago, is still accurate. He said DOT understands the importance of the bridge, but its main priority is to maintain bridges that are part of the U.S. 1 corridor. Given the importance of the Old Seven Mile Bridge as a recreational facility, we continue to look for both the city and the county to become funding partners so that rehabilitation plans can be finalized and construction implementation programmed, he said.Going greenThe Middle Keys advisory committee to the Monroe County Tourist Development Council on Nov. 30 approved $105,000 in funding for Pigeon Key to install a solar array and battery bank system to supply power to the island. The solar array means the island could ditch the two diesel generators its used for years and save roughly $50,000 per year on fuel, Koler said. The total project is $209,652, with BB&Tbank financing half that total cost. We spend $50,000 a year in diesel, labor and miscellaneous things associated with the generators. Thats a huge amount of money we spend every year. Were just going to shift that money into paying that loan off, he said.

Monday Friday 10 6pm Saturday 10 4pm Fishermens CEO search nearsWhile names are being held close to the vest, it appears the Fishermens Community Hospital board of directors is close to choosing a new top administrator. Scott Landrum, chief transition officer at Quorum Health Resources, has been filling the role since the hospital changed hands on July 1. The Tennessee-based firm is overseeing day-to-day operations, while the nonprofit board assumes financial responsibility for the hospital. QHR replaced Naplesbased Health Management Associates, which leased the Middle Keys medical center since 1986. AFishermens press release says the board and key staff members interviewed the top three candidates out of 67 applicants this week. We identified three candidates that meet our needs and possess the requisite skills and experience to lead the new Fishermens Community Hospital, board Chairman Michael Cunningham said in the release. All the finalists had impressive resumes. The interviews allow us to determine which one is the best fit for the hospital and the community as well. Fishermens hired Michael Schimming as its chief financial officer in October. He was previously CFO for Allegiance Health Management in Shreveport, La. Both Schimming and Lynn Mauck, chief operations and nursing officer, were rumored to have interviewed for the CEO job. But the release said candidatesnames are being withheld because of requests for confidentiality. The board said it considered numerous criteria for filling the hospitals top job, including: a masters degree in a related field, several years experience as an executive at a hospital or medical center and successful experience in hospital management. The board expects to make its selection before the New Year when Landrum is expected to return to Quorum Health Resources.Board interviews three finalists of 67 applicantsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON 5175 Overseas Hwy.

Two suspects were shot after a Chevrolet Avalanche sport-utility sped away from from officers in the Redland area around 4:30 p.m.The Avalanche raced down U.S. 1 to Florida City, where it crashed and overturned near the intersection of U.S. 1 and Card Sound Road.Gristoval Aviles, 31, died of gunshot wounds apparently fired by police. Ricardo Aviles, 30 who was the suspect named in the federal arrest affidavit was wounded and taken into custody. Another suspect Miguel A. Aquino, 29 was arrested later after officers found illegal weapons, silencers and a suspected grenade launcher in his home. U.S. 1 was closed from approximately 8 p.m. until 3 a.m. in both directions, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.Northbound traffic on Card Sound Road was closed for a period, but apparently reopened sometime after 9 p.m. Information on how long Card Sound was closed was not consistent in early reports. And a final report was not available by press time.Investigation of the crash scene in Florida City created a massive traffic tie-up, the Miami Herald reported.The Chevrolet Avalanche carrying Ricardo Aviles and Gristoval Aviles reportedly rammed a police car during an attempted traffic stop near the Aquino home, near SW228th Street and 157th Avenue.Officers recovered an AK47 rifle from the crashed SUV, which a confidential informant had agreed to buy from Ricardo Aviles. Ricardo Aviles was a convicted felon who served time on a larceny charge, and was out on bond from a September arrest for being a felon found in possession of a handgun. Aquino had been arrested on a drug charge in 1998.With reports from the Miami HeraldKeys cut off from mainland for 5 hoursCRIMECouncil to divvy up grants TuesdayArea nonprofit organizations arent shying away from the city of Marathons stricter new grant application process. Atotal of 20 organizations have requested a combined $184,982 in funding, more than double the $90,000 to be doled out. The City Council is slated to announce the awards at Tuesdays regular meeting. In September, the council approved across-the-board changes to the process by which it gives away a slim portion of its annual budget. It wants more detail on where money is spent and doesnt want any used for administrative costs. Local soup kitchen and shelter Independence Cay ($18,200), food bank Keys Area Interdenominational Resources ($16,600) and Grace Jones Day Care Center ($11,000) were the largest recipients last year. Theyre asking $25,000, $22,000 and $20,000 respectively in 2011-12. The next highest requests from Habitat for Humanity of the Middle Keys ($15,000), Rural Health Network ($12,000), Domestic Abuse Shelter ($12,000), Marathon Recreation Center ($12,000), Kreative Kids Christian Academy ($10,000) and Educational Coalition for Monroe County ($10,000). Literacy Volunteers, Marathon Band Boosters, Marathon Wild Bird Center, Pigeon Key Foundation, Salvation Army, Zonta Club, Be the Change of the Florida Keys, Clean Up The Keys, Crane Point Hammock, Guidance/Care Center and Heron-Peacock Assisted Living are the other groups requesting funding. When awarded, the grants will be paid in 50 percent increments in January and June. Among other changes to the application process, nonprofits must: Provide a report documenting previous use of Marathons grant money, if previously funded.Use city funds for direct services only.Provide a copy of the organizations budget.Clarify whether the grant will be used for services already provided by another local organization.List the number of people served by the organization and in what geographical areas, as well as a list of efforts to solicit volunteers and fundraising.List the number of fulltime employees, volunteers and total staff. New rules for non-profits that applyBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONRepay FEMA$6.4 million now or later?At the request of Mayor Craig Cates, the Key West City Commission has voted to delay a planned revenue bond issue that would borrow $6.4 million against future revenues of the citys sewer utility to repay a Federal Emergency Management Agency grant.The feds originally gave the city the money in 1999 to repairs damage to the New Town sewer and storm water systems incurred during Hurricane Irene, which dumped heavy rain and caused extensive flooding.However, in 2003, the grant application was audited and the money was de-obligated, triggering repayment. During the audit, FEMAstaff determined that damage to the sewers predated Irene.Despite two lengthy appeals and the input of U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the cash is due.Instead of the bond issue, Cates wants to pay the total directly from the utilitys $7 million reserve fund; with the delay, city staff is projecting how that move would affect planned capital projects.Also this week, commissioners unanimously approved, with Commissioner Mark Rossi and Tony Yaniz absent, a new law sponsored by Cates that sets a $100 cap on towing fees levied by operators.The cap applies to private tow companies that remove cars from privately owned lots in the Southernmost City.Cates originally pitched the idea last year, but the idea never gained traction. This time around he secured support from all the tow companies.Contained in the new law is language setting so-called gate fees at $30 and processing fees at $25. The change in policy was the result of numerous complaints the city got about predatory towing from numerous tourists and locals who had to pay in excess of $300 to get back their vehicles. Now that tow fee will be set at $100.Commissioners approved: bus rides in Key West and the Lower Keys will be free Dec. 21-24. Parking in the downtown business district, including at metered spaces, will be free Dec. 21-25.Commission eyes tapping reserves vs.new borrowingBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTProtecting the Gulf is criticalFormer First Lady Laura Bush, speaking Wednesday at a scientific summit in Texas, lauded the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary as critical protector of Gulf of Mexico marine resources. Whether you live in Key West, Mobile, Biloxi, New Orleans, Galveston, Corpus Christi or somewhere in between, every community along the Gulf depends on a healthy and sustainable ecosystem for their future existence and prosperity, said Bush, a Texas native. The three-day summit, hosted by Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, drew a diversity of public and private actors working on conservation and recovery in the Gulf, according to program information. The Deepwater Horizon spill in 2010 brought new urgency to the annual Gulf of Mexico Summit, organizers said. Bushs keynote speech at the closing event focused on protecting the Gulf of Mexico as a critical economic and environmental resource. From our experience with national marine monuments in the Pacific and with marine sanctuaries and national wildlife refuges and parks, we know that conservation and economic development are not mutually exclusive, Bush said. From the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary in the deep waters off Texas to the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and the Florida Everglades National Park, marine sanctuaries and parks attract visitors and give Gulf residents a great sense of pride in where they live. Instead of impeding commercial activity, they demonstrate that economic growth can occur in ways that dont compromise our most important and treasured ecological areas, she said. The former First Lady supported the concept of a a national marine monument or sanctuary along what some call the Islands of the Stream,a string of underwater mountains run along the outer Gulf shelf. Anumber of them rise to peaks near the surface of the water, creating a series of coral reef communities which track closely with the flow of the Gulf Stream, she said. The Flower Garden Banks sanctuary was created to protect one of these Gulf areas, but others need additional protection, Bush said. These Islands of the Streamring the Gulf, creating what I like to envision as a coral necklace. From the Flower Gardens, the underwater mountain chain runs east to the Florida Keys Sanctuary and up along the southeast coast of the United States, she said. These areas represent just a fraction of 1 percent of the continental shelf in the Gulf. Former President George W. Bush and his wife will join family members spending most of January along the Florida gulf coast, Laura Bush said.Former First Lady cites Keys as model MARINE SANCTUARY Keynoter Staff Keynoter Staff

I asked what was my consumption to see if there would be a cost savings over time. I was amazed to hear my wife and I use 20,000+ gallons of water a month. There is no way we can use that amount of water so I asked for an inspection the FKAAfound no leaks of any kind. After much pleading, a new meter was installed in May of 2010. My April use was 23,000 (gallons) and May dropped to 2,400 gallons. Bad Meter. I asked to have the old meter checked and, after several months, the test was made. The results showed the odometer was improperly installed. They also said the meter was destroyed during testing and could not be returned, however they would replace the meter to FKAAat no cost as warrantee. Wow this meter was installed in 1996 some warrantee. We then were told the FKAAwould credit me the difference in use and after one year we had credits of over $1,000, due to over charges from the faulty meter. I asked about the 14 years of overcharge and where is the credit or refund? The FKAAhas chosen to ignore my emails, phone calls, visits etc. In one meeting, they were going to send this to a superior for consideration. That has not happened. I encourage any FKAAuser to demand a complete audit, including changing the meter if your consumption is excessive as our was. The FKAAgave me a printout for the entire length of time and it shows this excessive use has been there for all these years. We assumed water was expensive and never challenged the bills we received. We just over paid for 15 years and they have kept the money. Jack Burley MarathonUsing smartphoneswhile driving not smart at all its dangerousCan you safely talk on a cellphone or for that matter, check your email or scroll through Google Maps while driving? Well, of course you can. But those other folks with their hands off the wheel and their eyes off the road are a public menace. Unfortunately, that sums up the attitude of many American motorists, who widely acknowledge using their phones while behind the wheel, but insist theyre safe drivers. Meanwhile, the number of people worried about the other guy is soaring. When the state Office of Traffic Safety asked California drivers to name the biggest safety problem on the road, nearly 40 percent listed drivers who use cellphones. Thats a big jump from last year, when the top worry was aggressive drivers and speeders, and only 18.3 percent were concerned about cellphones. So what changed? Probably the explosion of smartphones, which arent so much phones as portable computers and which, like a computer, require both eyes and often both hands, meaning that, in our view, drivers should never operate them. But they do. More than one in four Americans who download applications to their smartphones admit to using those apps while driving, according to a survey by Nationwide Mutual Insurance. And the number of people with smartphones is growing fast. U.S. sales of smartphones are expected to hit 95 million in 2011, and 43 percent of mobile phone owners have smartphones; soon it will be a majority. Motorists have good reason to worry about this. Studies show that people talking on their cellphones are four times more likely to be in an accident than other drivers, and their level of impairment is comparable to people with a blood alcohol level of 0.08 percent, the legal limit. And that research was done back when cellphones were used only for making calls. Now that theyre used for posting on Facebook or playing Angry Birds, we suspect the dangers are much greater. Lawmakers havent caught up. Thirty states ban cellphone use by novice drivers, but none do so for all drivers. California has a law that tries to limit the problem but aims at the wrong target. Here, its forbidden to text while driving or to hold a cellphone to ones ear, but drivers over 18 can still talk using a hands-free device; moreover, its still technically legal to use a smartphone app while behind the wheel. This is both outdated and ineffective. There is no evidence that using hands-free devices reduces cellphone-related accidents, which happen because drivers are distracted by their conversations, not because theyre using one hand to hold a phone. Atotal cellphone ban would avoid the problem of legislating for yesterdays technology, and reduce the number of accidents. Meanwhile, if you value your life and the lives of others, dont dial and drive. Los Angeles TimesDistrict cant plead ignoranceThe Key Largo Wastewater Taxing District is writing the rules based on the exception. The exceptional exception. Of interest would be how many properties (lots) have had the tax certificates sold, and how many owners now face having those properties taken by the certificate holder without ever knowing theyve lost their land? This problems is a bigger Pandoras Box than first appears, and the county is poised to suffer the legal and financial consequences. I personally questioned the districts policy of billing these lots for service over a year ago, after they billed me for a single lot I own, which is zoned Suburban Residential and, therefore, is un-buildable due to zoning. I was told that the district had no way of knowing which lots were buildable, and which owners might show up later wanting a meter. District policy states that service provided or connected at a later date would cost the owner significantly more. Their logic is that you need to pay now, so you dont have to pay more later. To put that in perspective, there are over 1,000 lots which will never be built upon for every one that may eventually obtain a permit. In Bay Haven alone there are about 180 vacant lots, and only one group of nine which could ever obtain a permit. Pretty fuzzy logic. I was brushed off and told to come fill out the forms if I wanted to change the status, and other owners could do the same. Its not up to us to determine which lots to bill. Background: I surmise that most every lot in question is zoned either SR or NA. In a SR subdivision, for instance, it would take a total of 9 contiguous lots in order to build one home. In Native Area, youd need 18. And youd have to wait in line in Tier1 for five years for administrative relief, and then, most likely, be denied a permit. And the county would choose to purchase the lot at market value. There are also lots zoned otherwise within tier 1, 2, and 3a, but technically, those can be built upon. Technically. At the very least, the lots zoned SR and NAshould be exempt from this taxation. And it would be a very simple process for the Sewer District to use county zoning maps to simplify the process. I believe the truth behind the policy is that there is significant revenue which has been generated from unknowing property owners, and the ignorance is to the Districts advantage. Either that, or theyre just lazy. George F. Wilson Key LargoThank you Turtle HospitalAs a local business owner, I would like to congratulate The Turtle Hospital and its director, Richie Moretti, for another great Turtle Hospital Workshop. Every year, the Turtle Hospital holds a workshop that brings in professionals in the field for an educational weekend in the beginning of December. This provides a needed boost to local businesses during a historically slow time of the year. Thank you for sponsoring an event to bring professionals to Marathon and giving us a weekend to look forward to. The Turtle Hospital is an asset to the City of Marathon we should all support and be proud of. Chad Bruhn Blue Waters Resort Motel MarathonDiscord grows at sewerdistrict headquartersAbombshell email released Tuesday night brought the Key Largo wastewater treatment districts board meeting to an abrupt halt. Instead of discussing contract renewal for the districts chief financial officer Sal Zappulla, the board found itself debating e-mails that raised questions about senior management. ANov. 20 email, written by district board chairman Robbie Majeska, asked Zappullas predecessor for information that could be used to terminate Zappulla. Only, that email never made it to Martin Waits, who resigned the CFO post last year. Instead, it apparently landed in Zappullas in-box. Zappulla was not at the meeting. His contract renewal was tabled because it is unclear if he still works for the wastewater district. Commissioner Andrew Tobin said at the meeting that he received an email from Zappulla last week stating he resigned. Zappulla could not be reached for comment. Dale Morgado, a Miami labor attorney hired by the wastewater district at the meeting, said he will send a letter to Zappulla asking if his email to Tobin was meant as a formal resignation. If this is not the case, please let us know, Morgado said the letter will ask. In the email, Majeska asked Waits: If you can think of specific problems that I can use during Sals semi evaluation at the next meeting, please forward them to me confidentially, Majeska wrote. You have to be pretty discrete, because a couple of commissioners that will shut you down. Majeska wrote that the information was needed because he did not have confidence that his colleagues on the board would vote not to renew Zappullas contract without such information. Marty; I believe that Sal is a fast ticking time bomb that needs to go. As the chairman that votes last, we need another commissioner besides Susy [Susan Hammaker] to sign on to this agenda, Majeska wrote. Andy [Andrew Tobin] is too concerned at keeping the CFO and manager [district General Manager Margaret Blank] separate, Charlie [Charles Brooks] goes to dinner with Sal, and Norm [Norman Higgins] is going to vote against anything that I or Margaret suggest. Higgins read the email at the end of the Tuesday night meeting and called for Majeska to resign. Majeska said at the meeting that he doesnt regret sending the letter. I stand by it, he told his colleagues on the dais. Waits, who said he wanted to stay out of the matter, said in an interview that he never received the email. He said that Majeska must have typed in his name instead of typing out his personal email address, and the message went to an inbox designated for work-related messages meant for Waits sent by people who didnt realize he resigned. Majeskas email is the latest salvo to go public in a war of words that shows intense internal turmoil within the utility. Previous emails leaked to The Reporter between Blank, the general manager, and Zappulla revealed Blanks frustration with Zappulla over his complaining about financial decisions made when Waits was CFO. Zappulla was particularly concerned that the district did not file necessary reports in 2008 and 2009 that would guarantee the utilitys money deposited in outside bank accounts was insured in the event of a bank failure. The district had money in the former TIB Bank at the time, an institution that got into trouble during the housing market bust and was bought by a holding company this year and renamed Capital Bank. Zappulla said in an earlier interview that the district could have lost millions in deposited dollars if TIB failed during those two years because the Public Depositor Annual Reports were not filed with the state Chief Financial Officer. In the emails, Blank told Zappulla to stop blaming Waits for your own lack of progress. Zappulla, who did not leak the email exchange to The Reporter is no stranger to controversy. He was formerly budget director for Monroe County. After being fired in October 2007 by former county manager Tom Willi, he appealed his termination and later received a $147,000 settlement from the county in April 2008 before the matter went to a hearing.Emails document disputes among senior managersBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comKEY LARGO

(alternatively, from the Florida Keys MLS, Inc.) for the pe riod for the period Nov. 27 Dec. 3, 2011. BusinessTimeline critical for business successionQ: How do I find a successorformy business? I own a very profitable company here in the Keys. With all of the money I make, youd think it would be easy to find and train a bright young man (or woman) who could one day buy me out and take over the business. Ive tried this twice so far, with two miserable failures. Do you have any clients who have done this successfully? Whats the secret? A: Im going to give you the bad news first. If youre like the typical American business owner, youre always looking for the one main thing, the bottom line, the silver bullet that prove to be the solution youre looking for.The bad news is, the answer to your question is NOTone main thing. Its many things, all of which need to be pointed in the right direction in order for your succession plan to be successful. In speaking with you about specifics of your situation, I learned that you are looking for both management and ownership succession.Probably the main thing you need to have is time and a realistic attitude. The things were going to talk about in the rest of this column have so many moving parts and so many nuances, theres no way anyone is going to get it right the first time. Most succession plans need a 5to 10-year timeframe to allow for the business owner to make mistakes, recognize the mistakes, correct the mistake, learn from the mistake, and then do it the right way the next time. The biggest mistake owners make is thinking that a successful succession depends mainly on finding the right person. This is incorrect. Although the right person is important, a successful succession of management and ownership depends upon culture, infrastructure, and the right person. We dealt with culture in last months column. Infrastructure applied to a business means the proper combination of management, planning and systems that allows the company to not only do its business but also to implement needed changes in its processes, management and systems. You can go to one of my websites, www.conundrumonline.com, to read more about this and to order a book that illustrates key infrastructure features for different types of Keys businesses. Hopefully, after doing this, youll have a good idea for how to approach the unique variables in your business that will dictate a successful succession plan.Now to the final element, the right person. There are a number of different ways to find the right person; many of my past columns have dealt with this topic. For now, Ill leave you with a couple of observations and an idea that Im trying right now in helping one of my clients with their succession plan. In this particular case, we have determined that the right person needs to have highly developed leadership skills, a can do attitude, and a high degree of intelligence. The client feels that, given a time horizon of two or three years, the right person can be taught everything that they would need to know about the technical aspects of the business. The client and I both feel that, if we get the right person to run the business, the company will continue to generate the high profits it has made in the past and, given past profitability, certain changes in the companys infrastructure, and the right successor, financing the buyout of the current owner will not be a problem. We are currently searching for the right successor among recently separated or to be separated members of the United States military. We have learned that there are several initiatives, websites and organizations dedicated to finding jobs for our military personnel now that the wars are winding down. Since this clients key success factors depend upon the leadership skills and attitude of the key person, we felt that the right former military person would be a good fit for the job. Again, the right person is NOTthe silver bullet but only one of several elements that youll need to make your plan work. Hopefully, by doing the rest of the homework discussed in this column, youll get your succession plan on the right track. Need help developing or executing your succession plan?

Community opposes Homeland Security buildingThe proposed conversion of the old Florida Keys Electric Cooperative Building in Tavernier into a U.S. Homeland Security building is on hold for now. The Monroe County Historic Preservation Commission unanimously voted Monday to delay deciding whether the project meets the architectural standards of the Tavernier Historical District until the county gets more details from the federal government about exactly what it plans to build. Commissioner Bert Bender said his board will take up the issue again once county planning staff determines whether the proposed project meets the buildings current approved use, which is to house offices. If not, commissioners with the Planning Commission and the County Commission would need to approve a conditional use agreement. More than 80 people packed into a small room inside the Tavernier fire station to voice opposition to the project during the fivemember commissions meeting Monday afternoon. Two commissioners were absent. The plan calls for the 8,300 square foot building at mile marker 91.6, oceanside, to be converted to a federal office building that will house agents with the Department of Homeland Securitys Investigative division and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Marine Unit. Government officials and representatives of the buildings owner, Tampa-based Hoover Properties, insist the building will not be a prisoner holding facility. But most of the people who spoke at Mondays meeting and most of the letters read into the record by commissioners cited the possibility of the building being used as a jail as the chief reason why they opposed the project. The building would have holding cells and processing offices, but no prisoner would be kept overnight at the facility, Special Agent Leo Morales, the head of Homeland Securitys South Florida investigative office, said in a previous interview. But Tavernier resident Richard Agler said he feared the one or two original holding cells may multiply over time, and go unnoticed after attention over the building wanes. Mission creep is easy to visualize, Agler said, referencing a term meant to describe a mission that expands well past its original stated intent. Residents spoke out against the proposed 6-foot high wrought iron fence that would surround the 30-plus space parking lot. Another sore spot: plans calling to close the buildings entrance on U.S. 1. In exchange, there would be an entrance on Sunrise Drive and an exit on North Sunrise Drive. Residents were also angry that no representative from the federal government or Hoover Properties attended the meeting. Hoover Properties instead sent its contracted civil engineer Carlos Solis to explain the project and field questions. Solis said building plans have not been submitted to the county because Hoover wanted to get the go-ahead from the historic commission first. The original intention of Mondays meeting was for the Historic Preservation Commission to decide whether the proposed buildings architecture fit within the historic district. But Nick Mulick, a Tavernier attorney representing about 100 residents against the project, said the commissioners were also within their purview to approve or reject the project on the basis of whether the building itself belonged in the district. Mulick said some of the proposed buildings designs make clear that the function of the facility is to secure whats going to be inside, including prisoners. Without this configuration, this project will not function, Mulick said. The building is designed to secure people who dont want to be there. Therefore, Mulick said the commission should decide that the building does not belong in Tavernier. If a [prisoner holding facility] is not planned, Mulick asked the three commissioners present at the meeting, then why isnt someone here from the company saying this is not planned, County weighs if approved use in districtBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comTAVERNIERCouncil approves workforce housingThe five-member Islamorada Village Council cautiously approved a lease for a 36-unit workforce housing project on Upper Matecumbe Key. Councilman voted 3-2 to grant Wisconsin-based developer Gorman & Co. a 99year lease for the duplex project on the former WetNet property on the Old Highway. Mayor Michael Reckwerdt and Councilman Don Achenberg voted against the lease, saying they supported the project, but are concerned it leaves the village prone to lawsuits from wealthy neighbors of the 4acre future rental property. Gorman needed approval at last Thursdays Village Council meeting to meet a deadline to submit an application for about $9 million in federal Low Income Housing Tax Credits, which are approved by the Florida Housing Finance Corporation. Reckwerdt and Achenberg expressed concerns that developer Michael Swerdlow and other former litigants in a 2006 lawsuit against the village over the same property and affordable housing will sue again. The village settled with the plaintiffs in 2009, and part of the settlement is the site plan Gorman plans to use to build its project. Village attorney Lillian Arango said that Gorman will pay the village a down payment of $200,000 up front, plus $300,000 over 15 years. Gorman will also put $150,000 in a separate legal account that would be used to pay for legal defense if the company and the village are sued. Achenberg said the money isnt nearly enough. My fear is that after the $150,000 is used up, we begin to use taxpayer money, he said. Reckwerdt agreed, saying he didnt want to be put in the position of defending Gorman from a wellfinanced lawsuit. Nina Boniske, another attorney for the village, said much of the concern about paying to defend against lawsuits is unnecessary since Gorman would also need to pay for its own counsel. The village would not be sued alone, she said, while maintaining she was not advocating a position on the matter. Gorman is also building a workforce housing project in Tavernier, which is almost complete. The 36-unit, $8.1 million Blue Water Carpet Cottages complex is located at U.S. 1 and Burton Drive. Lawsuit threat from neighbors remains concernBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.com ISLAMORADA NEWS BRIEFSTraffic alert for Upper KeysSome Upper Keys drivers should expect delays Saturday as intersections temporarily close along U.S. 1 to accommodate more than 500 police motorcycles that will make their way through the area.Its a fundraiser to benefit children of South Florida law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.At approximately 11 a.m., riders honoring the Police Officer Assistance Trust begin at the Miami-Dade Police Departments Fred Taylor Headquarters Building in west Miami-Dade.They expect to cross the Monroe-Miami-Dade County line on U.S.1 within an hour afterward.

The Coral Shores High School boys soccer team imitated the popular Denver Broncos quarterbacks touchdown celebration on each of its five goals Wednesday, taking a knee and putting a closed fist to their foreheads. The Hurricanes struggled to get going early, but scored four second-half goals en route to a shutout win over Key rival Marathon High School. It was a little rough in the beginning, but it always is when we play Marathon. They always bring a good team, Coral Shores coach Jorge Bosque said. The Dolphins controlled the pace of play in the games opening minutes, but it was the Canes who had a pair of quality scoring chances. They finally capitalized around 20 minutes in when Alec Houston scored off a Jack Hatfield corner kick to make it 1-0. Coral Shores had several more chances after that, but Dolphins goalie Raymond Crespo made several nice stops to keep them in the game. That included a save on a breakaway chance for Paul Pauchey. Raymond played great even though it was a 5-0 game, Marathon coach Lynn Landry said. Hes filling in for head coach Jim Murphy this week. Landry noted the difference in the second half was Coral Shores winning corner kicks and scoring off headers in the second half.Canes best Dolphins in rivals gameBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comSOCCERKeynoter Photo by RYAN McCARTHYCanesIan Thomson (No.12) battles with Marathons Ricky Ceja for control of the ball.Coral Shores went on to win 5-0 in Wednesdays matchup.See Canes,2B Hurricanes host wrestling tourney todayCoral Shores wrestlers roll out the mats today (Dec. 10) for what could be the teams complete home season. The Canes host the District Duals Tournament, expected to bring six of the seven squads in District 16Ato Tavernier. Key West High School will miss the Upper Keys tournament due to a previously scheduled match. Competition in the daylong event at Coral Shores begins at 10:30 a.m. Saturday. Hurricane coaches are working to add a second home meet some time in January, but details of that event have not been confirmed. Coral Shores opened the mat season last weekend at a Key West tournament, with Cane veterans J.D. Mulkeen at 160 and Sterling HillRidgeway at 189 each posting a 4-1 record. Theyre all getting what Im coaching a lot easier and quicker, said Tom Milkovich, an Ohio wrestling legend beginning his second season as Hurricane head coach. Each kid we got back seems to be wrestling better, Milkovich said. You can really see it when were drilling in practice. Senior captain Rich Garcia, moving up from 130 pounds to 145 pounds, has gotten bigger and stronger, said Mark Terrill, serving as assistant coach with former Coral Shores wrestler Joe Biondoletti. Mulkeen, a junior, has really turned it up, Terrill said. Hes a long and lanky guy whose ability has caught up with his body. The Canes expect to fill 12 of the 14 weight classes today, including veterans like junior Henry Rroshi at 140 and sophomore Daniel Whisted at 103. So far, everybody seems to be enjoying it, Milkovich said. By the end of the season, theyre going to be a lot better. Then theyll really have a lot of fun.

The Lady Canes were 4-2 headed into Fridays home game against Archbishop Carroll (results pending at press time). Girls are stepping up, coach Arthur Paterson said after the Carrollton win. This team is starting to take on the identity I want them to have playing tough, hard and smart, he said. Carrollton was the first team the Canes faced since a 7-1 loss at Gulliver Prep (12-0) on Dec. 1. Forward Iris Dunn scored the Carrollton matchs first two goals. Striker Jasmine Paterson then drilled four scores into the Cyclone net. Mallory Wiecjorek scored the final goal on a free kick and played a standout game on the defensive end, Arthur Paterson said. We need a vocal leader on the defensive end. Mallory seems to be taking that role, Paterson said. She works well with our other steady defenders like Cami Lopez and Kelly Cassidy. Paterson also praised performances by defender Noelle Perry and midfielders Jessica Butler and Rachel Hansen. The Canes postponed a Thursday match at Coral Reef High School because of school-related commitments and injuries. The game could be rescheduled as soon as this week, since the Canes do not have another game on the calendar until a home match Dec. 16.

I consider myself an adventurous eater. I like to try different foods, but what a challenge when I signed up for the Redlands Organics CSAvegetable share last winter. CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture) share harvest from local farms. In this case, Redlands Organics has a group of farms and businesses in the Redlands area in South Miami-Dade County. The food is locally grown, mostly organic, and seasonal. You get what can be grown at this time of year; nothing shipped in from outside.I grow some of our own produce in my small raised bed. The idea of having freshly-grown local produce to supplement the vegetables from our garden seemed perfect.What a surprise when I picked up my first CSAbox in Big Pine Key and excitedly opened it. The first thing I saw was a huge daikon radish. What? And dandelion greens, yukina savoy, oh brother. Thankfully I saw a few things I recognized like green beans, lettuce and cherry tomatoes. Enclosed was a newsletter with photos describing the contents and a couple of suggested recipes. Still, I had to research recipes for the daikon radish, while the other things I figured could be stir-fried or boiled like collard greens. I made a delicious daikon radish and chicken Koreanstyle dish. The next shipments surprise was callalo, roselle, Asian eggplant as well as a selection of more familiar items like lettuce, avocados, yucca, scallions. Again, more internetbrowsing for recipes for the exotics and then another couple of hours cooking them. Thank goodness shipment day is Sunday when I had time. My husband, a very easy-going guy, was my guinea pig. However he drew the line at the very green callalo soup I served him. And so it went on for 20 weeks. Every Sunday morning I picked up my box, researched recipes for the unfamiliar items and cooked them up immediately. Gradually I became less intimidated with the different vegetables and even appreciated kale. Who knew kale chips could be so good.I decided not to sign up again for 2011-2012 as I wanted to concentrate on my own vegetable garden and supplement as needed with store-bought items. I am currently nurturing bush beans, collard greens, bell peppers and broccoli. It is only now, when I am still waiting for my garden to produce, that I am missing my CSAsurprises.Acouple of years ago my husband and I started eating more vegetables and fruit and less meat. Research has shown that incorporating more veggies and fruit into your diet can help reduce risk of heart disease, lower BMI, lower blood pressure, provide better blood sugar control and reduce cholesterol.Not only is your health improved, but the environment benefits as well. Recently the United States Geological Survey reported that 40 percent of fresh water used in the U.S. went to irrigate feed crops for livestock. Only 13 percent was used for domestic purposes, including showers, flushing toilets, washing cars and watering lawns. Record droughts in Texas and Mexico have had drastic effects on the livestock industry. Eating more veggies and less meat is not only a hearthealthy choice, but goes a long way toward conserving freshwater, an important, indemand and unpredictable natural resource.

The lighted boat parades launch this weekend with Avatar producer Jon Landau serving as grand marshal for the Key Largo extravaganza.Key West Harbor will host the largest flotilla of vessels in the 21st year for the Schooner Wharf Annual Lighted Boat Parade.And holiday revelers who line the wharf will also get to enjoy the Gerald Adams Elementary School Steel Your Heart Band. They kick off the festivities at 6 p.m. followed by holiday melodies delivered by the Doerfels, a family of singers that crosses three generations and perform frequently in the Keys as well as on tour. At 8 p.m., the boats begin their slow sashay past the judgesreviewing stand at the Schooner Wharf, led as always by the Coast Guard lead vessel. The scene is repeated up and down the Keys as lighted boat parades launch from Key Largo to Key West. The floating spectacle of lights afloat begins at 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10. Also this year, the Schooner Wharf is providing space for the Boys and Girls Club of Key West to sell holiday ornaments and other gift items. That begins in the afternoon. Schooner Wharf Bar will be offering eggnog, hot apple jack drinks, a piping hot ham dinner and live entertainment all day Saturday, Dec. 10. Decorated vessels compete for bragging rights along with more than $20,500 in prizes. Afree raffle will be held with a value topping $4,000. Because this is Key West, the holiday decorations range from giant conch shells to dancing gingerbread men (and women), lots of rotund Santas, reindeer pulling sailing ships instead of sleighs, and lights that blink in time to music. One year Santa climbed the mast and won applause from the crowd. Another year, a tiny kayak cruised past the reviewing stand with a display of holiday lights blazing and a car battery providing the juice.Past winners have included dolphins jumping in and out of the water, as well as manatees, pelicans, sea horses, and other island creatures.

It is a slow and tedious yet beautiful film that will probably leave viewers in one of three camps; those who love the dramatic visual effects, those who love art and know the story of the painting at the films center, and those who say What the &%#$ was that? Co-written and directed by Lech Majewski, the centerpiece of the film is Pieter Bruegels 1564 masterpiece The Procession to Calvary (sometimes called The Way to Calvary), a large, complex painting that reportedly contains more than 500 individual figures and puts Christs crucifixion in Bruegels contemporary 16th century Flanders. The film borrows its title from the critically acclaimed analysis of Bruegels painting by art critic Michael Francis Gibson, who co-wrote the screenplay. Using a combination of blue screen, location filming from central Europe and New Zealand and CGI, director Majewski gives the film an almost 3D effect, putting us right inside the painting. The marvelous opening shot of the movie shows us the villagers as if they were models preparing to be painted, costumed and arranged by Bruegel him-Majewskis film escorts viewers inside masterpieceCraig Wanous KEYS FILM See Film,6BGingerbread house partyIf visions of sugarplums dance in your head, then you might want to bring the kids to the gingerbread house party being held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17, at The Oldest House.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 6B Saturday,December 10,2011 self. The final shot of the film zooms out and shows us the real painting hanging in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. In between, the imagined real life of the villagers blends with the figures in the painting until it becomes hard to distinguish between the two. Several themes (I cant call them storylines) run through the film and things happen that have no explanation, almost like live-action snapshots of moments in time that we see but dont understand. The red-coated Spanish are the heavies who ride in, do horrible things, and then ride off. Bruegels wife and children go about their daily lives, oblivious to the cruelty around them. Agiant windmill towers over the landscape, the meaning of which the artist explains to his patron. Ayoung couple buys some bread for a picnic that is fatally interrupted. Musicians scamper around the village for no apparent reason. Another couple takes their treasured calf out for a stroll, pulling it along in a cart. Only three of the actors have any real dialog. Rutger Hauer plays artist Pieter Bruegel, working on his masterpiece and explaining it to his patron, played by Michael York. Charlotte Rampling plays the model for Mary, the mother of Jesus, whose sad, frowning face never changes. There is almost no other dialog, other than some background chatter in Flemish and Spanish, which is not subtitled. The acting by Hauer, York and Rampling is adequate but not particularly noteworthy. But the costumes are absolutely amazing and dont be surprised if the name Dorota Roqueplo, the costume designer, comes up at Oscar time. Watching this movie takes patience and a different mindset than most of todays films. There is action and violence, but we observe it as outsiders and dont get drawn in. There is comedy, but its the humor of real life, not the slapstick or sit-com variety. There is romance and nudity, but its brief and not explicit. All the elements to make a good film are present. But I cant really call The Mill & the Cross a good film. Its more like sitting in a gallery absorbing every detail of a famous masterpiece for an hour-and-ahalf. Some people enjoy that, some dont. So do I recommend The Mill & the Cross? Yes and no. For those who dont enjoy art galleries and museums, you may be in the third camp mentioned above and might come out of the theater wishing you could get those 95 minutes back. But for those in the first two camps, I definitely recommend the film. It is a compelling and fascinating theater experience that must be seen on the big screen. (Do not wait for the DVD!) The Mill & the Cross is a visually stunning work of art, on film, that takes you inside another stunning work of art, on canvas, and rewards you for your patience.Regal Cinemas Searstown,Key West,294-0000 All shows that start before 4 p.m play only on weekends.

Jones, whose work includes commissioned paintings displayed in the Florida State Capital Building, Walt Disney World Corporation, Marriott Corporation, Omni Corporation, and numerous museums will talk about Rembrandt Paints Talking Colors. Much of his work embraces nature and painting outdoors. Pablo SansegundoCastaneda says of Jones: Tom Jones is a painter who possesses such power that by dipping his brushes in colored water only he gives us the feeling of being before nature itself. Master of his craft, he obtains extremely difficult effects such as moving our soul at the sight of a beam of sunlight piercing through the foliage of the forest. That is magic; That is a great painter. His work has been featured in many books and on magazine covers. The Watercolor Society meeting will be held at the Veranda Room at Seawatch, mile marker 53 bayside, Marathon. The meeting is open to the public.
