Today, that same boat which was renamed Island Time and will begin cruising the waters off Key Largo on New Years Eve is permitted to carry only 134 people. The 78-footer didnt shrink. Americans got bigger around the waistline. The U.S. Coast Guard feels the U.S. people have gotten fatter over time, said Capt. Ed Sparrow, owner of a Miami-based charter yacht called Holiday of Magic Its legal capacity has shrunk from 49 to 35 passengers. Since 1960, the Coast Guard has calculated vessels capacity using an assumed average weight per person of 160 pounds. That was seven years before McDonalds rolled out the Big Mac. On Dec. 1, an amended federal rule took effect that recalibrated the average weight of a passenger at 185, a 25-pound jump. Generally speaking, most cruise ships are not affected by the new rule because they are registered outside the United States. Your recreational boat also gets a pass. But for commercial vessels sailing under the U.S. flag, the new standard applies.Many folks big-bellied cruisers included think the new standard is long overdue. Oh, God, yeah. Im 251 with sandals, David Kushner of Chenango Bridge, N.Y., said as he boarded the Key Largo Princess glass-bottom boat for a sunset cruise with his wife of 43 years.The revamped weight standard applies to all passengers, regardless of gender, and was based on a 2004 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that found the average male, 20 to 75 years old, weighs in at 191 pounds, up from 166 pounds in 1960. For women, the tally went from 140 to 164.Rooted in tragedyThe call for change stemmed from two boating tragedies. In March 2004, a pontoon water taxi called Lady D overturned in Baltimore Harbor with 25 aboard. Five people died; four were severely injured. In October 2005, a boat called Ethan Allen sunk in 70 feet of water on Lake George in New York while carrying 49 passengers. Twenty elderly people died. In both cases, the vessels were carrying the proper number of passengers but an excess amount of weight. Those accidents shined a spotlight on the antiquated assumed weight, which was a puny 140 pounds for boats that cruised solely on protected waters such as rivers and lakes. I guess they thought you were skinnier if you sailed on the rivers than the oceans, said Jimmy Hendricks, owner of the Key LargoExpanding waistlines result in fewer passengers for some boatsBy CAMMY CLARKcclark@MiamiHerald.comON THE WATER SPREADING CHEER Leftwich is Fishermens new CEOThe transition at Fishermens Community Hospital is officially complete. Over the past year, the Middle Keys medical center cut ties with 25-year lessee Health Management Associates, hired a new management company in Tennesseebased Quorum Health Resources and gave the hospital a new name and logo. Now it has a new chief executive officer, Hal Leftwich, whos spent the past 15 years at Hancock Medical Center in Bay St. Louis, Miss. The announcement came Wednesday and hes slated to take over at Fishermens on Jan. 1. An Orlando native, Leftwich said hes happy to be back in his home state.There are times when its a good time to make a switch and move on to a new challenge, or else you need to commit to the place youre at for another five or six years, he said. I had been wanting to get back into Florida. Ive spent a lot of time [in the Keys] and always thought it would be a great place to live.Leftwich, 56, was one of 67 applicants for the top job and one of just seven to be interviewed in Marathon.The hospital is really trying to build itself up. I took a look at it and decided it was the kind of challenge Id enjoy, he said. Ive been at a couple hospitals in the Midwest with five or six patients per day and Ive been at 400-bed trauma centers. I really found I like the smaller hospitals better. As the administrator, you get involved in just about everything.Fishermens has 25 bedsExecutive starts top job on Jan.1By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comHEALTH CARE LEFTWICHGastesi contract extended until 2016The Monroe County Commission on Wednesday gave County Administrator Roman Gastesi a four-year contract extension with little discussion.Were looking forward to the next four years. The last three and a half years weve applied a tourniquet to financial hemorrhaging and were doing things to improve, Gastesi told the commission. The board agreed to his request for an increase in pay from $181,440 per year to $185,040. The increase is for Gastesis monthly car allowance, which is rolled into his salary for Florida Retirement System purposes. It goes from $650 to $950 per month.He uses his personal vehicle and averages 25,000 miles traveled each year on county business. At the 44 cents per mile reimbursement rate, that equals $11,000. He was receiving $7,800.Gastesi pulled the extension off last months agenda after his request to use a hybrid county car created concern about whether personal use of a county car would increase county insurance premiums. Gastesis spotty South Florida driving record between 1997 and 2009 was also made public, but commissioners were clear that wouldnt affect their decision to extend him. The new contract runs through May 11, 2016. The commission also took the following actions Wednesday at the Marathon Government Center:His colleagues werent keen on Commissioner George Neugents proposal to have voters decide if the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority board, now appointed by the governor, should be an elected body. Neugent floated the idea after, he said, he received numerous calls in the wake of the utilitys Nov. 22 meeting at which nine-year Executive Director Jim Reynolds abruptly resigned.At the same meeting, the board replaced Reynolds with utility attorney Kirk Zuelch, a previous Monroe County state attorney. The vote was 4-1 and neither action appeared on the agenda as action items in advance.Commissioner Heather Carruthers said her only concern is with most Aqueduct Authority board members being Lower Keys residents. I havent been getting any calls in support of this. Both elected and appointed board can be good or bad.Administrator gets increase to $185,040By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY GASTESISee County,4ASee CEO,2ASee Capacity,2A Nonprofit grantsIndependence Cay and 19 other nonprofits get a share of $90,000 from the Marathon City Council.

Jeremy Patrick Huth, 40, of Akron, Ohio, was recently spotlighted as the U.S. Marshal Services Ohio fugitive of the week. Key West Police Department spokeswoman Alyson Crean said the feds got a tip that he was headed to the Keys and probably Key West, which led them to a New Town address. From there, police tracked Huth to a Ford van in a parking lot on 3rd Street, Stock Island. Crean said Huth went peacefully. Huth was still in the Monroe County Detention Center on Friday awaiting an extradition hearing. According to Ohio-based news reports, the alleged rape took place in New Franklin, Ohio, in August.

The choice of Leftwich was surprisingly clear cut for both the board and the staff that participated in interviews with him. He successfully led several small hospitals through major challenges, was a hospital CEO or vice president at four Florida hospitals, and has the proven skills and leadership abilities to take Fishermens Community Hospital to the next level, said Fishermens board Chairman Michael Cunningham.Leftwich was vice president of Kissimmee Memorial Hospital from 1982 to 1984, vice president of Parrish Medical Center in Titusville from 1984 to 1991, and has been employed by Quorum since 1991. He previously worked as interim CEO for hospitals in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and North Carolina.The Fishermens board hired Quorum last year to help with the transition from HMA. Quorum executive Scott Landrum has been serving as interim CEO since July 1, taking over from former CEO Kim Bassett, who decided to stay with HMA.CEO starts Jan. 1From CEO,1AMurray considers runBig Pine Key resident Larry Murray, passed over Tuesday by Duncan Mathewson for reappointment to the Monroe County School Districts Audit and Finance Committee, said he is considering a run for Mathewsons School Board seat.Im seriously considering running for the School Board, he said Friday. He said hes weighing the time commitment and whether I can serve the people better on the inside or on the outside.Mathewson, a two-term incumbent, declined to reappoint Murray at a board meeting at Coral Shores High School. Instead he appointed Hazel Hartman, a Florida Keys charter-school administrator, to a two-year term on the advisory and oversight committee.Mathewson hasnt decided if hell seek a third four-year board term. Declared candidates for his District 3 seat are Michael Cunningham, director of the Florida Keys Area Health Education Center, and Mark Peterson, a retired attorney.Dan Dombroski, the longtime executive director of the Boys and Girls Club of Key West, said hes also considering a run. As of Friday, Peterson was the only candidate that had officially filed with the Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Office.As for the Audit and Finance Committee, the other four School Board members simply reappointed their initial selections to the panel, which monitors risk and finances for the School District. Returning to the committee are Stuart Kessler, Roger McVeigh, Bill Anderson and Melissa GradyMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS KEYSNET.COM Keynoter StaffPrincess. His vessel takes passengers to the edge of the Gulf Stream to see the reef. William Peters, a civilian in the Coast Guards office of design and engineering standards, said of the Baltimore Harbor: It highlighted that the average weight of people on that vessel far exceeded the assumed weight. The amended rule holds ocean-going vessels and those that sail on protected waters to the same standard.During the public comment stage of the proposed rule change, Peters said there were 108 comments. Most agreed with the 185-pound figure, although one boat operator said the nationality of the passengers should be taken into account.One of the comments said: Gee, I have Asians on my boat, Peters said. He had a U.S.-flag operation in the Far East, and he said Asians weigh less than you domestic Americans. He wanted to know why he should be constrained by how fat all the Americans got when he carried mostly Filipinos.Wider girthsOthers recommended that the average weight be set even higher, considering subsequent CDC reports have shown Americans packing on additional pounds.One person commented that we should just raise the number to 200 pounds and be done with it, Peters said. The regulatory analysis estimated that about 6,100 passenger vessels would be subject to the amended rule, although only about 1,000 to 1,300 would be forced to lower their capacity. Smaller boats actually are affected more than the bigger boats, Peters said.The Key Largo Princess capacity of 140 passengers is not changing, Hendricks said.The glass-bottom boat actually could carry more passengers under Coast Guard standards, he said. We all want to be safe, and I tend to worry about my insurance companies and passenger liability more than the Coast Guard.Wider waists change rulesFrom Capacity,1A

Jara seeks job securityFaced with a request from schools Superintendent Jesus Jara for a multi-year contract extension, the Monroe County School Board on Tuesday came back with the offer of one additional year. However, no firm commitment was given, although it appears the majority of the board is happy with Jaras performance and that he will get an extension.Jara made the request toward the end of Tuesdays board meeting at Coral Shores High School, emphasizing the need for administrative continuity as the School District works through massive reductions and corresponding downsizing.I think were going in the right direction, he told the board. The schools are headed in the right direction. Ill stack my name up against anybody that really knows this community.Board member Robin Smith-Martin was the first to respond: I think youve done a great job. Id be willing at this point to talk about a one-year extension to your contract. Smith-Martin said that Jara, since replacing former Superintendent Joseph Burke in August, had undergone trial by fire. Board member Duncan Mathewson said the district cant afford on-the-job training for anybody new coming in. I think what youve done, Mr. Superintendent, has shown us all how important good follow-up is and a good hands-on approach. He also said its time the district really got serious about formulating and implementing a long-term strategic plan. Burke was appointed by then-Gov. Charlie Crist in summer 2009 to replace Randy Acevedo, who had been indicted and was later convicted of official misconduct for covering up theft from the district by his wife. Acevedo had been elected to a four-year term in 2008 that ends on Jan. 13, 2012. Burke was meant to fulfill that term, but on July 1, he took a job as the Lee County School District superintendent. In August, Gov. Rick Scott appointed Jara, Burkes chief operating officer, to the top spot; he earns around $140,000 per year. School Board Chairman John Dick on Thursday said hes pleased with Jaras performance in making tough, and unpopular, decisions.Weve got real money problems and I dont see them going away in the next year, Dick said. Were not going to be offering top dollar.I dont want a retired guy coming down here or somebody building their resume like Burke. [Jara] wants the job.Superintendent: Multi-year deal deservedBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS KeysNet.com Keynoter 4A Saturday,December 17,2011 This Christmas Shop in town!

I also have not had overwhelming public input as to their input on this issue one way or the other, Mayor David Rice said. The commission will revisit the issue at a future meeting.Agreed to submit an application for a $300,000 grant to the Federal Highway Administration to study the pros and cons of a toll along U.S. 1 in the Keys. The county applied for the same grant last fiscal year but was denied.Commissioner Heather Carruthers has pushed for a toll in hopes that money generated could be used to fund state-mandated sewer and stormwater construction projects. The vote was 3-2 to pursue the grant, with commissioners Kim Wigington and Sylvia Murphy dissenting. But even Neugent and Rice made it clear they might not support a toll.Another push for toll studyFrom County,1A Spoto to get $35,000 payoffThey werent happy about it, but Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board commissioners agreed Friday to pay former Superintendent Michael Spoto $35,000 rather than have his wrongful-firing grievance heard by the Monroe County Career Service Council.Spoto was fired in November 2010, shortly after being charged with felony theft for misappropriating three district cell phones in 2007. He administered the districts taxpayer-funded cellphone program at the time and racked up $5,000 in bills using them for personal use.Spoto pleaded guilty in June charge and was sentenced to three months in jail, followed by two and a half years of probation. Spoto was earning $115,960 at the time of his firing and the board eliminated the superintendent position in January. Commissioners outside of Chairman Bill Shaw, who voted against the settlement were clear they acted in what they felt is the best interest of the taxpayers. The district will pay a maximum $5,000 deductible, and its insurance provider will cover the rest. Director Michael Doyle said that as part of the agreement, Spoto agreed to drop further attempts at back pay and reinstatement. Spoto was fired, on a 3-2 vote, because he violated a last-chance agreement by getting a speeding ticket in 2009 and ordered a boardapproved letter not to be sent to a contractor hired by the district.Commissioner Jack Bridges said he was concerned the Career Service Council might not agree with the reasoning.I have great trepidations about paying anybody who actually stole from this board.

Saturday,December 17,2011 5A Keynoter KeysNet.com Fantasy Fest queen arrestedSurrey Westrupp, the reigning queen of Key Wests Fantasy Fest, was arrested Thursday night and is being held without bond on three felony and 13 misdemeanor drug charges. AKey West police report says that after receiving complaints from neighbors about drug sales, police officers knocked on the door at 1021 Watson Lane, a house Westrupp, 31, shares with Charles Fritz. Fritz answered and officers immediately smelled marijuana and saw numerous items of paraphernalia, including a bong, grinder, pot residue and plastic bags, the report says.While police waited for a search warrant, Westrupp arrived on a scooter. The report says Fritz claimed possession of 56 grams of marijuana and some paraphernalia, while Westrupp was found to have numerous prescription narcotics, items with cocaine residue and a marijuana pipe.Westrupp became queen of Fantasy Fest in October after raising more money for AIDS Help than other queen candidates. Westrupp faces several counts due to drugsKEY WEST WESTRUPPRoot files forbug boardLongtime Key West resident Timothy Root filed Tuesday to oppose fourterm incumbent Steve Smith for the District 1 Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board seat in November. Root, 57, has never run for political office but has sat on the citys Historical Architectural Review Commission and is vice chairman of the citys advisory Planning Board.I looked at whats going on with the board and thought Id be able to help with fiscal problems, he said.Then-Director Ed Fussells $184,600 annual salary and what many critics said was a bloated budget were the big issues during the 2010 election cycle.Fussell retired in January after Upper Keys attorney Jack Bridges won the District 5 seat that had been long held by Fussells staunch supporter, Charles Langstaff. Langstaff pleaded guilty in June to homestead exemption fraud and faces $60,000 owed to Levy County and Monroe County for back taxes. New Director Michael Doyle has pledged to get the districts budget in order and replenish rapidly declining reserves over the next three years. Root, a general contractor, said it may be time for a change on the board, but insists hes not running against fellow Democrat Smith. The primary election is Aug. 14. Im running for my constituents. People got behind me and they thought I could do a good job, Root said. I hope I can serve the city and my district ... and keep our taxes under control but have a good program. Chairman Bill Shaw, a Republican, said hell seek a fifth four-year term in District 4, while Pat Bowman filed on Dec. 2 to run against five-term incumbent Joan Lord-Papy, a Democrat, in District 1.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 6A Saturday,December 17,2011 PalmistryNOW OPEN!Tarot Readings Personal Advisor Counseling Sessions Astrology & Compatibility Charts Available Specialty Gifts305.747.9520NEWAGEBOUTIQUESpiritualPsychic Glynn Archertransfer seems imminentThe Monroe County School Board on Tuesday supported Chairman John Dicks proposal to give Glynn Archer Elementary School to the city of Key West for use as a city hall in exchange for space to park buses in the Lower Keys. Since his election in October 2009, Mayor Craig Cates has pushed for placing city offices in the White Street school as opposed to rebuilding the administrative facility at its current location, 525 Angela St. That building is dilapidated and needs to be replaced. Presently City Hall is in rented space at Habana Plaza on Flagler Avenue. Although the city and School Board have attempted to make this deal in the past, the difference this time is that no cash would exchange hands. I dont believe any taxing entity exchanging cash from one to another is really beneficial to the taxpayers, Dick said at the session at Coral Shores High School in Tavernier. He continued on by addressing and dismissing general criticisms that giving a building owned by countywide taxpayers to a municipal government is a rip-off to taxpayers living outside Key West. I think we have a responsibility to all the communities we operate in. I would still do the same thing if it was in Key Largo. Id want to do the best thing for that community and I think the best thing for that community is that building be maintained and used. Glynn Archer houses about 300 students in kindergarten through grade six; that entire operation is slated to move to a new elementary wing thats under construction at Horace OBryant Middle School and set for completion by summer 2013. We know were going to be out of Glynn Archer once HOB is completed, Superintendent Jesus Jara said. The bottom line, as superintendent, is we dont want to end up with an empty building. We want to have something that has an equal value for the needs of the community. Another component of the deal is that the district would maintain some access to office space at Glynn Archer. That fits in with long-term district goals to sell off the administrative complex on Trumbo Road and decentralize the administration. Of the Trumbo property: Thats something we might be able to sell, Dick said. From where I look at it, I dont even know if we need much room in Glynn Archer. I see us reducing [district staff] further. I dont know how much we really need in space other than what we have available in all our schools. Large portions of Marathon High School remain vacant and in the past month, Jara has started working from there at least two days a week. Board member Robin Smith Martin asked Jara for an analysis of how much office space would be needed for the district at Glynn Archer and expressed a desire that the superintendent have an office in the front part of the 82-year-old school to foster public access. He also brought up the need for a long-term facilities plan. What is the most practical, efficient use of our facilities to serve our mission? Thats how Im going to make my decision. City Attorney Shawn Smith was on hand and stressed that time is of the essence because plans are under way to rebuild on Angela Street. The [Key West] City Commission has only allowed a small window. The city is moving forward with Angela Street ... so this window is rapidly closing. Sooner is better if this is going to come together. He requested the School Board take action at its Jan. 24, meeting, set to begin at 5 p.m. in Key West, which would be followed by City Commission discussion in February. The tentative scenario for bus parking calls for space to be allotted on cityowned property on Stock Island adjacent to Gerald Adams Elementary School.School Board endorses school to the cityBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Village chooses sewer firmThe Islamorada Village Council voted Thursday night to begin negotiations with Veolia Water North America to design, build, operate and finance its centralized sewer system. The five-member council voted 4-1 in favor of Veolia, the French international engineering firm, which was in competition with Indianabased Reynolds Inc. Veolia scored best of the two firms in both technical and economic evaluations rated by an appointed committee. Veolia said it could design and build the system for $98.7 million. Councilman David Purdo voted against choosing Veolia. He gave several reasons, including its plan to dig 90-foot shallow wells at the proposed treatment plant site, its choice of the old Key Lime property at mile marker 86.6, and because he favors a system that pipes wastewater to be treated at Key Largos existing treatment plant at mile marker 100.5. Veolias plan calls for a 975,000-gallon-per-day treatment facility. Aforce main would carry sewage flow from Lower Matecumbe Key, Upper Matecumbe Key, Windley Key and South Plantation Key to the 3-acre facility. The facility would have 90-foot shallow disposal wells and treatment tanks that would be located behind the plant. The plan also calls for the existing 335,000-gallon-per-day plant on North Plantation Key to be upgraded to be able to handle 460,000 gallons a day. The $98.7 million only includes how much it will cost to design and build the project. Operating and financing the system is projected to cost $224.2 million over 30 years, according to documents released by the evaluation committee. The commissioners made it clear that there is still time and room to make changes in Veolias plan. The vote, they said, was not meant as a green light to start building a system.Mayor Michael Reckwerdtsaid the option of treating Islamoradas sewage at the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District plant is not off the table. Councilman Don Achenberg said there is a draft contract with Key Largo, which he said Key Largo sewer officials so far have ignored. Im as disappointed as everyone else, but if they dont want us, its their plant, he said. The project is meant to comply with a state mandate that all of the Keys connect to a centralized advanced wastewater system by December 2015. Several Village Council members have said publicly that if they considered the estimated cost of the project too high, they would tell the state to either pay for it, or the village cant comply. Islamorada resident Stanley Margulies told commissioners the village should sue the state for the cost of the project because, he said, the centralized sewer system requirement is an illegal unfunded mandate. Several other residents at the meeting shared this opinion. But Veolia deal hardly finalizedBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keynoter.comISLAMORADAFeds levy grounding finesDamaging protected seagrass within the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary could cost seven boaters an average of about $6,300. People need to be aware there are consequences to running aground on seagrass as well as coral, sanctuary Superintendent Sean Morton said Friday. Federal notices-of-violation assessments recently were lodged against seven boaters in seagrass cases stemming from August 2010 to July 2011 for total proposed fines of $44,000, according to a federal lawenforcement report sent to the Sanctuary Advisory Council. That is only a fraction of the grounding cases reported to state and federal marine officials. Some involve ships or large boats, but smaller boats cause most groundings. An October report on conditions in the Keys marine sanctuary says more than 300 vessel groundings [of boats less than 50 long] are reported annually within the sanctuary.... Many grounding incidents that damage resources are not reported. Some relatively minor cases are settled with written warnings, and others by ticket-level fines. There are different levels of injury, Morton said. Prosecutors have to look at the scientific assessment of the damage and consider whether its an egregious violation. Sometimes we see the same people running aground. In a typical grounding case, a witness or salvage company reports that a boater has hit the sea bottom on coral or seagrass. An officer responds and alerts the sanctuary if a detailed damage assessment is required. Then cases are sent to the attorneys for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. There are always grounding cases in the pipeline, Morton said. Many vessel groundings are entirely preventable through experience, patience and planning, he said. That involves knowing local waters, carrying current NOAAcharts and using navigation equipment, he said. Often these fines dont come close to the actual cost of restoring the habitat, Morton said. And it can take from seven to 15 years for damaged seagrass to recover. Anybody who flies over the Keys can see prop scars in the seagrass, Morton said. Go out to reefs like White Banks Dry Rocks [off Key Largo] and see the blue bottom paint on the coral. Acoral restoration project off the Lower Keys from 2002 received national attention this month when scientists reported that transplanted corals have taken hold and thrived. The owner of the 36foot boat that damaged 376 square feet of coral paid a $56,617 fine.Boats damage Keys seagrass, is preventableON THE WATERBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org
The Marathon City Council on Tuesday narrowly voted down the construction of a 150-foot AT&Tcellphone tower on a vacant lot near U.S. 1 and 64th Street. Councilmen Mike Cinque and Dick Ramsay argued spotty service in the heart of Marathon presents a public safety issue, as many homes have no land line in the event of an emergency. But Mayor Pete Worthington and council members Rich Keating and Ginger Snead said the tower would be an eyesore. The request to build the tower was made by Keys WiFi Inc., on a lot owned by real estate broker Brian Schmitt. Its at 273 64th St, behind the MetroPCS store on U.S. 1. Keys Wi-Fi owner Rick Richter told the council he was approached by AT&Tto help fix a coverage gap in the middle of Marathon. The wireless giant has towers at Coco Plum Drive and on Grassy Key.Richter said the tower would comply with city landuse regulations and that a tower on a residential street would not reduce surrounding property values. He also assured the council the tower would pose no health risk and is designed to collapse, in the event of a hurricane, within the 10,000-square-foot lot.Planning Director George Garrett said the company agreed to build a concrete barrier and add landscaping to hide the tower from the street-level view. But those considerations were not enough for Worthington, Keating and Snead, who voiced concern about placing the tower in the back yard of city residents.Theres not a tower in this town that is attractive. They are a visual blight, Worthington said. I dont think theres not a need for a communications tower. What were deciding on tonight is, is this the right location? Its not the need; its the location.Schmitt told the council the project is necessary and even pointed out the number of 90-foot Florida Keys Electric Cooperative poles 145 between Vaca Cut and the Seven Mile Bridge. Were not talking about a couple of people here. Its hundreds and hundreds of households. This is not a convenience issue; its a health safety issue, Schmitt said, reiterating the lack of landline telephones. Cinque agreed and made the argument that Marathon is a land poor community. AT&Tdid their due diligence to place it with the best coverage. If we turn down this location, wed be hypocrites to put it anywhere else, he said.Ramsay noted that only one resident, who lives nearby and opposed to the project, showed up for the public hearing.The citys advisory Planning Commission voted 4-0 in favor of the cell tower at its Nov. 21 meeting.

E-TAILSSolution in the Dec.21 Keynoter Crossword solutionSolution to the Dec.14 puzzle.More bleak news on finance frontForced to dip into reserves to pay for an unexpected enrollment increase in Florida Keys charter schools, the Monroe County School Board on Tuesday received a bleak fiscal forecast for the 2012-13 budget year. Back in September, board members approved a spending plan of $80,052,314. Since then, additional expenses totaling more than $1.7 million were identified. They were somewhat offset by a $562,241 reduction adopted at the Tuesday session at Coral Shores High School and based largely on open transportation and maintenance positions that will go unfilled.As it stands, the ratio of the districts revenues to reserves will stand at 2.71 percent, or $2,025,285, when the fiscal year ends on June 30. When the number falls below 3 percent, Superintendent Jesus Jara has to notify the state Department of Education, and below 2 percent theres the possibility of state oversight.School Board Chairman John Dick pressed Chief Financial Officer Michael Kinneer to find a way to avoid falling below the 3 percent threshold, but Kinneer said hed done as much as he could.Id like to see us do whatever we can to avoid sending that letter, Dick said.I cant see, at this point, planning and continuing an operation to say were going to end the year at 2.71 percent. I think you need to plan an operation I dont care how you do it to be above 3 percent. I dont know how helpful I dont care how you do it is, Kinneer said. Then, Dick put all his cards on the table: Nobody will get a yes vote from me on the budget unless you have a 5 percent fund balance built into it next year. In the current budget cycle, Superintendent Jesus Jara and his team have cut more than $9 million in yearover-year expenditures, outsourcing custodial services, delaying performance pay for teachers and mandating seven unpaid furlough days for all teachers and staff. Of Dicks goal of a 5 percent reserve: Were going to have to really make some tough decisions as a district to be able to get to that level, Jara said. Its going to be painful, he continued. Were going to have to live with a lot less. Ive had experience in larger districts. Its a little different in Monroe. Its a little more personal. With that, he suggested hosting some sort of public forum to solicit input from residents and teachers. Dick was OK with the idea but said theres nothing new in terms of unidentified savings. The tough decisions have to come from the superintendent and his staff, he said, and the board has got to back them. Relative to the budget conversation is a Jan. 31 referendum that will ask voters to move a .5 tax levy, or 50 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value, from the capital fund to the general fund. If OKd, about $9.8 million would be transferred next budget year. Already faced with between $4 million and $6 million in cuts, a failed referendum would mean a budget shortfall of somewhere around $15 million, since the administration is counting on that transfer.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS

Disney day specialThe children and families of Grace Jones Daycare would like to thank the many people who made it possible for some of our children and parents to travel to Key West for a meet-andgreet with the Disney characters arranged by Randy Detrick and Patsy Senese. Every year, we are able to choose children who have not been to Disney but know the characters well. Special thanks to Anna Haskins from the Monroe County Transportation Department, who drove from Key West to pick up the children from our center and returned them back on her own time. Also, we want to thank John Tetti from Tropical Limousine for providing a limo and driver free of charge, complete with snacks and sodas for the ride to transport the rest of the children and parents. Special thanks to registered nurse Dianne Weitz at Fishermans Community Hospital for getting this all together to run so smoothly. The children were all smiles and are still talking about what a good time it was. The parents were excited, as well.

These reasons generally are more practical than political, and they take account of the many unique realities of Monroe County. Even before she officially became our congresswoman after the 2000 redistricting process, Rep. RosLehtinen eagerly undertook the process to familiarize herself on the issues affecting our county. Since that time, she has remained very aware of and involved with the needs of Keys residents and visitors.Whether it is obtaining funding for projects at Florida Keys Community College; working with the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association to advocate for sensible fishing regulations and bag limits that protect the environment and balance concerns of private and commercial fishermen; working with the various federal, state and local agencies ranging from the U.S. Coast Guard, Navy, Homeland Security and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Monroe County itself and our five municipalities trying to address the sewer funding situation; Rep. Ros-Lehtinen is precisely the kind of representative the Constitutional drafters intended.Her efforts and her voting record transcend party lines just as our voting demographics in Monroe County cut almost equally across party/non-party lines. She presents herself in word and deed as representing all her constituents with equal care and attention. For too long, previous representatives of the Keys ignored this part of their district, rarely had a district presence here, and may as well not have had this as part of their district based on their lack of awareness and interest in our concerns. That cannot be said of Rep. Ros-Lehtinen.As chairwoman of the very important House Foreign Affairs Committee, she could easily let herself get consumed with work in Washington, but she does not. She takes time to participate in local events. She also maintains a solid local presence through her chief of staff Debbie Zimmerman and her Keys representative Kim Sovia-Crandon.This is not to suggest that any of the other potential Congress members who might get the Keys under the new proposed maps would not represent us adequately, but why change what already is working so well? It only makes sense to continue to leave the Keys as part of Rep. Ros-Lehtinens district and to continue to give us the ongoing benefits of having her represent us in the U.S. House of Representatives. Carey Goodman Cudjoe KeyGastesi, commissioners question why Marathon getetting more permits, then get put on notice themselvesFor tis the sport to have the enginer Hoist with his owne petar. Shakespeare knew a thing or two about doubledealings, as witness this line from Hamlet. Apetar (later petard) was a cylinder-shaped bomb, filled with gunpowder, used to undermine castle gates or breech walls in medieval keeps. To be hoisted by ones own petard meant to fall victim to the very engine of war deployed against the enemy i.e., to be accidentally blown up. It must feel this way to the Monroe County administrator and the county commissioners who challenged the state Department of Economic Opportunitys decision to give Marathon 100 extra building permit allocations. DOE is now the parent agency of the former Department of Community Affairs. The state signaled it plans to approve Marathons request because of the citys progress on completing its sewer construction. Those 100 allocations equate to transient units set aside for future hotel development. But County Administrator Roman Gastesi, in a letter sent Nov. 18, questioned the states action, citing hurricane evacuation models not yet approved as the reason to hold off any bonus units to anyone in the Keys. Well, the state responded Dec. 5 and it looks like the county may have ignited its own petard. Doug Darling, DEOs executive director, said the state has determined that 100 transient units evacuated within the first 24 hours of a 48-hour phased evacuation stream dont pose any added risk. Furthermore, since the county brought it up, Darling wants to know when the county is going to show progress in meeting its own wastewater compliance deadline, especially the big Cudjoe Key regional system that will serve the Lower Keys. Hes given the county until Dec. 31 to submit a financial plan to the state detailing how the county will fully fund the Cudjoe Regional facility using local funds. Note that reference to local funds. Then Darling adds this kicker: State and federal funding could supplement the financial plan, if available. Thats a very big if, especially since all the sewer funds promised the past few years by the state and the feds have been empty promises. In hindsight, the county would have been better off not sticking its nose into Marathons wastewater progress report, lest it learn the hard way that lesson about being hoisted on its own petard. Among those heading to meet the Disney characters are (from left) Reina Garcia holding Victoria Gonzalez, Angel Garcia, Alejandro Gonzalez,Genecis Barreras,Johanna Garcia and Dianne Weitz.State demands sewerplanThe state Department of Economic Opportunity has ordered Monroe County to provide by Dec. 31 a plan for financing the $156 million Lower Keys sewer system. Thats essential if the county wants any chance of being awarded hotel-room permit allocations in the future, much like the 100 plus the ability to borrow forward another 100 the city of Marathon is slated to receive as a reward for its progress in building its sewer system. In a Nov. 10 letter to DOE, Monroe County questioned the states decision to award Marathon the units. County Administrator Roman Gastesi downplayed the states letter. I think its retaliation for asking, because why didnt they ask us [for a funding plan] until after we asked about Marathon, he asked. Theyve acknowledged that we need outside help and were going to remind them of that. In fact, Gastesi recommended to the County Commission Wednesday that Monroe send the state the plan we had all along. That plan is to fund the sewer system using system development fees, revenue from a 1-cent infrastructure sales tax in place through at least 2018, and state grants. But state and federal money has dried up and the county is under a state mandate to complete the project by December 2015. The so-called Cudjoe Regional sewer system would cover roughly 7,000 parcels from Cudjoe Key to Big Pine Key. They recognize the unfairness of putting it on the backs of Monroe County residents, Gastesi said. The countys objection to Marathons receiving the permit allocations revolves around an incomplete update to the states hurricane evacuation model developed by the Department of Emergency Management. The model shows the Keys could handle more transient units, but assumes every transient unit will be vacated 48 hours before a storm arrives. The County Commission said it felt the state should wait to award units until after its scheduled visit in July. Marathon, Islamorada and Monroe County officials have to appear before the state Cabinet each year to specify progress made on state-mandated work plans centered on installing central sewers, along with other environmental issues.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTYTaxis drive drug stingsUndercover detectives in Marathon literally took suspects for a ride in a fourmonth investigation revealed Friday.Posing a taxi drivers, Special Investigations deputies with the Monroe County Sheriffs Office collected information on people believed to be selling drugs or stolen items. The result: Five people have been arrested in the operation dubbed Taxi Cab Confessions after a popular cable-TVreality show.It was a variation on a drug sting, Deputy Becky Herrin said. Instead of walking the streets to solicit drug sales, they were giving people rides.With the cooperation of several cab companies in the Marathon area, detectives spent shifts mostly at night behind the wheel. Herrin declined to say how many officers were involved. During the course of the investigation, they purchased a number of illegal substances from people and purchased stolen property, as well, she said. Detectives made purchases of marijuana and cocaine, and also purchased six stolen GPS devices and two stolen radar detectors.The stolen goods were traced back to car burglaries ranging from Cudjoe Key to Marathon.At least one of the suspects volunteered a sample marijuana joint to an undercover officer, Herrin said. Officers ended the operation by arresting five people on Wednesday. Several more arrests are expected, Herrin said. Deputies served a warrant on a home at 167 23rd St. ocean in Marathon early Wednesday. Ablack bag containing 10 grams of cocaine and two crack cookies was seized. Aresident at the house sold officers cocaine on two previous occasions, Herrin said. Pshantell Scott, 38, was taken into custody at the scene on two warrants charging her with selling cocaine. Also charged in connection with cases from Taxi Cab Confessions:Letty Ann Laster, 46, of Marathon, charged with selling cocaine and marijuana.Gregory A. Davis, 45, of Marathon, charged with three counts of selling cocaine or marijuana.Aric Tanner Jinks, 18, of Marathon, two counts of selling marijuana.Yosvany Torna, 17, charged with three counts of dealing in stolen property and two counts of selling marijuana.

Call us today at 305-393-1843 BusinessBaptist Health tries to get employees healthierFor a decade, Baptist Health South Florida has been a leader in urging its 13,000 employees to lead healthier lifestyles offering such benefits as free 24/7 gyms at work and discounted low-fat meals in the cafeterias. When it came to choosing the carrot or the stick for promoting wellness and reducing skyrocketing health-care costs, Baptist has offered the carrot. Many major employers are making similar moves elsewhere in South Florida and around the country. But now Baptist and others say those efforts may not be enough because healthcare costs have continued to rise. That has prompted some companies across the country to reach for the stick for example, finding ways for employees with unhealthy habits to pay more for insurance. Baptist isnt among them. Instead, it has decided to offer even more carrots. Baptist Health manages Mariners Hospital in Tavernier, a 25-bed medical center. It has more than 100 staff physicians and 250 employees. Starting in about a year, Baptist will offer incentives to high-risk employees and relatives, says Corey Heller, the systems chief human resources officer. Details are still being worked out, but the basic concept is that those with chronic problems would be rewarded for trying to deal with them for example, reducing premiums for overweight workers who regularly exercise in a gym or meet certain weightloss goals. Many employers nationwide are thinking along the same lines, although its not clear which approach reward or punishment will prevail. Anational survey of 600 major companies by the Towers Watson consulting firm found that 33 percent were planning in 2012 or later to reward or penalize workers based on targets for such issues as weight and cholesterol levels. Another 18 percent plan in 2012 or later to take similar actions when it comes to those with chronic diseases. Thats double the percentage of major companies that were enforcing such measures in 2010. Facing a national obesity epidemic and soaring numbers of diabetics, many employers are worried about rising health-care costs. Though double-digit percentage increases are no longer happening, a recent survey of 100 Florida employers by the Mercer consulting group found that their total health-care costs increased 5.7 percent in 2011 two-thirds higher than the inflation rate of 3.5 percent.Rising costsHealth-care costs at Florida companies that offer insurance now average $9,093 per employee annually, the Mercer study found. Baptist, with all its wellness initiatives, saw employee health-cares costs rise 14.6 percent in 2010 and another 5.7 percent in 2011. Wellness is on many executivesminds. Twothirds of employers in the Towers Watson survey said they feel their main challenge to affordable healthcare is the poor health habits of their employees. The easiest move for many employers appears to be taking action to cut down on smoking. Baptist gives its nonsmokers a carrot, a $30 reduction in premium payments per biweekly pay period. Florida Power & Light offers a $5 biweekly reduction for nonsmokers. The University of Miami employs a stick a $50 monthly fee tacked onto premiums for smokers. All three employers rely on workers to volunteer honest answers and all provide free smoking cessation programs. Many surveys indicate that the real healthcare costs of a smoker are far higher. One study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that the average smoker costs an employer $1,600 in additional medical expenditures and $1,760 in lost productivity each year. Safeway, a national supermarket chain, has created some huge disparities in how much nonunion employees pay for health care. People who dont smoke and meet certain standards for weight, blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar can see their premiums reduced by $1,040 for the employee and an additional $1,040 a year for spouse/partner, according to spokesman Brian Dowling. Bruce Shanefield, a Miami benefits specialist with Aon Hewitt consulting services, says some large South Florida employers are looking carefully at the carrot-stick issues: There are a lot of questions around what organizations can do and cant do. For example, Shanefield says companies cant use the height and weight calculation called body mass index, or BMI, to penalize an employee because the employee might claim their weight is due to a thyroid problem or genetics, perhaps tied to racial-ethnic heritage, meaning federal discrimination laws may be invoked. Shanefield says it might be possible, however, for employers to require biometric surveys measuring BMI and blood pressure, then using a simple blood test for things like blood sugar and cholesterol levels. If those numbers showed significant problems, insurers could require that the employees take measures to correct the situation say, lose 20 pounds. Success could be rewarded with lower premiums. Failure could be penalized with higher ones. Privacy issuesFor employees who fear that this sounds too much like Big Brother, Shanefield says the issue could be kept confidential, with the insurer informing the boss only of a DM, or disease management issue. Most employers prefer the carrot because it doesnt alienate employees, Shanefield says, but we have seen that the stick is becoming more and more discussed, and its because some employers are getting frustrated that workers arent taking better of themselves. He says more bosses are asking why they should pay an employee to be healthy. Still, thats what many big companies are doing. FPLoffers incentives for employees to complete a biometric assessment. Starting next year, an FPL employee will receive $100 in a health savings account for reaching each of certain measures for blood pressure, cholesterol and body mass index, according to FPL spokeswoman Marie Bertot. The goal ... of the incentives is to encourage employees to take action to improve their own health and, in fact, many employees are already doing so, Bertot says. Over time, we hope they [the incentives] help keep health costs down and save money for the company, our employees and our customers. Ryder, a global company with headquarters in West Miami-Dade, is starting a new wellness initiative next year, teaming with UnitedHealthcare and the YMCAto offer diabetics and pre-diabetics counseling, nutrition advice, exercise and weight loss classes with rewards of up to $300 for participating in the program. Ryder feels its doing well enough with carrots, says Pamela Rothstein, the companys benefits director. At Gulliver Schools in Miami-Dade, an increasing number of employees are volunteering to take a health-risk questionnaire and undergo biometric screening. Each gets $75 for doing so. James Santoro, the schools senior director of human resources, says many employees get an eye-opening understanding about how their behavior could be endangering their health. Were getting more and more people excited, says Santoro. About 175 of the 460 employees have done risk assessment and several employees have lost more than 30 pounds after the assessments. Santoro says Gulliver is confident the program will lower healthcare costs, although he knows wellness programs often dont show overnight results. Steven Ullmann, a University of Miami health policy expert, says using negative reinforcement the stick carries some ethical implications. He points out that a timesqueezed single mother is unlikely to have time to attend gym classes to lower her premium. He calls the sticks definitely more invasive, definitely more paternalistic. But he notes: Unhealthy behavior is essentially a lose-lose situation for both employer and employee.Mariners among hospitals using new incentivesBy JOHN DORSCHNERjdorschner@MiamiHerald.comIN THE WORKPLACE Key PricePriceDays Listing Office, Selling office, AddressListedSoldlistedListing agentSelling agentKey Colony Beach 510 12th St.$335,000$335,0000American Caribbean R.E./Karen Raspe American Caribbean R.E./Karen Raspe 721 Ocean Dr.$255,000$235,00072American Caribbean R.E./Ginger HendersonShoreline Properties/ Jacklyn KelleyKey Largo 225 Gasparilla Dr.$237,500$225,00071Century 21 Schwartz Rlty. /Laura RobertsMoorings Realty, Inc./ Debra Mott 114 Gumbo Limbo Dr.$185,000$175,500247Barbara Eads Rlty./Barbara EadsShoreline Properties/Sue MooneyKey West 1800 Atlantic Blvd.$298,000$290,000203Coldwell Banker Sch.

Aheader goal off a corner kick midway in the second half tightened up the race for the unofficial Monroe County boys soccer crown Wednesday. Coral Shores High prevailed in a 1-0 defensive game against Key West High School, getting back at the Conchs, who won a 3-2 decision in November. We knew we were going to have a battle, Coral Shores head coach Jorge Bosque said. It was a good defensive game on both sides. We could have been better offensively but Key West held their ground. Areworked lineup paid dividends for the Canes on the matchs only goal. Jimmy Rhyne, a 6-foot-2 junior who recently moved up field into a forward spot, headed in the score off A.J. Patersons spot-on corner kick. The second-half water break gave the Canes a chance to organize the play. A.J. and I talked about where the ball needed to be, Rhyne said. A.J. did what he had to and I did what I had to. Bosque recently shifted steady veteran Tony Papp to sweeper to anchor the Cane defense and pushed Rhyne up field to take advantage of his speed.

Its all our kids have been talking about, coach Miguel Menendez said Friday. Theyre looking forward to playing on a bigleague field. The Conchs will play Archbishop McCarthy at 3:30 p.m. April 9, five days after the Marlins play the St. Louis Cardinals in their home opener at the new park, which sits where the Orange Bowl once did in Little Havana. Its a neat thing to be one of the first events at the new stadium, Menendez said. Six other prep teams will play in the stadium either that day or on April 10. The invitation is a testament, Menendez said, to the relationship the Conchs have had with the Marlins. The 2005 Key West state championship team was honored later that year at what was then known as Dolphins Stadium (now Sun Life Stadium), the Marlinsprevious home. The Miami Herald reported this week that a high school game between Belen Jesuit and Columbus on March 5 will be the first game at the new stadium, and that at least five other events, including Marlin exhibitions against the University of Miami, Florida International University and the New York Yankees, will be held before the April 4 opener. Although the stadium seats 37,000, it is likely that the capacity will be considerably less than that for the Conchsgame. We do have to sell tickets to a Marlins game as part of the deal, Menendez said. We have to sell 500 tickets at $25 each and that includes admission for a Marlins game and our game. By the time the game rolls around, the Conchs will be more than 20 games into the season.

The boys defeated the Panthers, 4-1, behind twogoal efforts from juniors Riley Durkin and Ricky Ceja, while Taylor Konrath netted four of her own en route to a mercy-rule 8-0 win for the girls. Girls coach Lynn Landry, filling in on the boys side for coach Jim Murphy, said the boys continued momentum from a quality effort against Westminster Christian School on Dec. 9. It was a very wellplayed game by the boys. We were shorthanded without Ramarlo [Robertson] and Ariel [Rodriguez]. Edwin Ibanez stepped into the sweeper position and Ciro Cammarata stepped in at forward and did a real nice job, he said.

It was the first road test for the Conchs, who improved to 4-0 overall and 2-0 in district. Four Key West starters were in double figures, led by JeQuan Lopez, who scored 17 points. Thomas Butler scored 16, Ryan Wagner 13 and Anthony Rice 10. The fifth starter, Tony Guieb, added five. The Conchs hadnt played in 12 days, but exhibited little rust. They got off to a 6-0 lead before the Sabres battled back for a 12-12 tie at the end of the period. Key West had a size advantage inside with Lopez, Butler and Rice, and used it to outscore the Sabres, 12-3, in the second quarter for a 24-15 halftime lead.

With strong easterly winds blowing over the oceanside field at George M. Barley Jr. Stadium, Coral Shores got a little more aggressive in the second half when the winds were to the Hurricanes backs, said the coach. We knew wed have more opportunities, Bosque said. On nights like this, any ball that goes into the air has a mind of its own. Nick Hortensi took over for injured Steven Chadwick and helped the Canes limit scoring chances by Key West (5-6-1), Bosque said. Cane goalie Alejandro Bolivar needed to make about five saves, Bosque said. Aphysical first half saw a Conch midfielder sidelined with a double yellow card for protesting a call, which led to the removal of a Conch assistant coach from the field. The Canes carried a 7-4 record into a scheduled Friday night game against Terra Institute (results pending at press time). Coral Shores plays host to Marathon High School at 5 p.m. Tuesday, following a 3 JVgame.Keys rivalry games upcomingFrom Soccer,1B minutes, he took balls down the left side and cut inside from left to right while several Dolphin players made runs to the goal. The defense shifted to those players, leaving Ceja open from 25 yards out. Durkin scored on a crossing ball early in the second half and put the game out of reach late by beating several Panther defenders in the box to make it 4-1. On the girls side, Konrath scored four of the Dolphinsfirst five goals and the game was called early into the second half. Sophomore Nicole Girard scored two goals, while Katie Landry and Julietta Pezzella each scored one. As of late, weve come out playing well and thats what I like to see, Landry said. The boys (6-4-1) and girls (11-4) were each scheduled to host Key West High School Friday but results werent available at press time.Dolphins soccer teams dominateFrom Dolphins,1B 17 of them for 85 percent. Lopez made all eight of his foul shots. At halftime we talked about getting the ball down low so we could get them in foul trouble, said coach Anton Lopez, who added that free-throw accuracy (We shoot 60 to 70 at practice) is a team priority. The third quarter belonged to the Conchs, who outscored St. Brendan, 22-15, for a 46-30 lead. The last points came on a 3-point shot by Lopez at the buzzer. If the Conchs believed the game was all but over, they were mistaken. The Sabres, who were down, 48-30, staged a frenzied fourth-quarter comeback. After Santiago Bachara made the last two of his 18 points with less than two minutes to play, the lead was down to 50-44. But Key West scored 11 of the next 13 points nine of them at the foul line to secure the victory. The Sabres fell to 7-4 and 1-1. For being off a week and a half, we did a wonderful job, Lopez said. The Conchs are scheduled to play Coral Shores at 7 Tuesday night and Marathon at 7 Wednesday night. Both games will be at the Bobby Menendez Gym.Dolphins, Canes visit the ConchsFrom Conchs,1B Hurricanes eke out hoops winAfter adding the seasons third win Tuesday, the Coral Shores High School Hurricanes head into Keys rivalry week with games against Key West High School and Marathon High. Coral Shores (3-6) battled to hold a lead against Barrington Academy, but late free throws by Alberto Anderson and others preserved the 78-76 victory. It shouldnt have been that close, head coach Jay Sanderson said, noting the Canes were up by a dozen points heading into the fourth quarter. We made some key turnovers, the basket started getting smaller for us, and we gave Barrington a chance, he said. But a 30-point game by 6-foot-8 junior center Will Ismer and 21 points from freshman Anderson kept the Canes in front at the buzzer.It came down to the final seconds and our guys were out there scrapping pretty hard, Sanderson said. We got into a situation where we had to finish, and I think we learned how to win a close game.Our guys got excited on the court, which was good to see, Sanderson said. We need to play with more emotion. Guard Alex Gomez had a 13-point game, and forward Terrell Taylor grabbed eight rebounds to go with eight points. Results from Fridays scheduled game against Palmer Trinity were pending at press time. Palmer topped the Canes in the early season but Sanderson expected an evenly matched contest in the Hurricane gym. The last time we played, the guys coming over from football had a total of two days practice, he said. Weve gotten better. The Hurricanes will need to be firing on all cylinders in Tuesdays District 16-4A game against the 4-0 Conchs. Game time at the Key West gym is 7 p.m., following a 5:30 JVstart.

The Dolphins (2-5) led the undersized Panthers 23-0 after one quarter and cruised to an easy 57-14 win. We took advantage of the size. It was a district game and a good one to get; we havent played well lately and getting a win boosted the teams spirit, coach Kevin Freeman said. Senior Dwayne Ellis scored 24 points and hauled in five rebounds in less than 15 minutes of action. Freeman pulled his starters after the first quarter and gave them limited playing time in the third quarter. He said the team worked on transition offense and that all 10 first-quarter baskets came off assists.That was key for us to start sharing the ball, he said.Damian Chavez had a career high 12 points, while senior guard Trevelle Beckford had seven points, six rebounds and five assists. Somerset cancelled a scheduled matchup Tuesday with the varsity girls basketball team. The Dolphins were scheduled to face Archbishop Curley Friday, but results were not available at press time.

Given the nature of the assistance, doo credit might be more accurate. It creates kind of a Jackson Pollock effect, mused Brooks, moving his guano-flecked animal sculptures from cages at the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center in Tavernier. The sculptures co-habitated with the centers resident population of disabled and rehabilitating seabirds for two months, giving the birds a chance to add their own special element to the art. Guano, Brooks correctly noted, is the actual term for excrement of fish-eating seabirds. By living with the birds, an explanatory sign advised curious bird-center visitors, the sculptures will accumulate the visible traces of life on their surface, from one bird at a time to one sculpture at a time. Life has touched the work and left its mark, said Brooks, 36, an amiable Indiana native now teaching and working in New York City. Brooks has visited the Keys regularly since his youth. He lived in the Lower Keys during summers between college terms learning how to navigate local waters by trial and error. The Keys are an amazing nexus point, Brooks said. As far as places where land meets water specifically, it doesnt get any better than the Keys. Being here in the Keys and at the bird center actually inspired this idea, Brooks said of his wildlife-withguano motif. The bird center has been an influence on me. Its a grassroots effort that can make a measurable change, he said. And now its generating a new art form. His latest work titled Still Life with Stampede and Guano debuted at the New Art Dealers Association Fair in Miami Beach, held while art patrons were visiting for the renowned Art Basel festival (the NADA show is not affiliated with Art Basel) in early December. Brooks used the same technique, with guano donated by Wild Bird Center residents, for an earlier 26-piece sculpture installation, The Wilderness with Stampede and Guano, displayed at the Miami Art Museum in March. It since has been moved overseas to go on display at the prestigious Saatchi Gallery in London. That one nearly killed me, Brooks said. It was all solid concrete and weighs a total 14,000 pounds. It took six guys and a forklift to move it. The newer installation includes much lighter fiberglass works, along with some concrete. And the guano. Once the bacteria breaks down, guano is a very stable, archival material, Brooks said. He adds several coats of specialty varnish just to make sure. He describes the finished collection as having a domestic exoticism; art at the edge of the outside environment. The sculptures look like something anyone could have in a yard or garden, he said, but bear evidence of having spent time with living wildlife. Pelicans are the workhorses of the painting, Brooks laughed. They give you the coverage. Cormorants and egrets give you the splash or spray. The others [birds] are too subtle. Alarge-scale Brooks work the 5,000-squarefoot Desert Rooftops has been installed as the first project at The Art Productions outdoor space off Times Square in New York. The shingled rooftops (no houses, just roofs) mimic the rolling lines of natural sand dunes, intending to show how manmade structures are displacing the essential desert landscape. It will remain until early February. That ones kind of gloomy and somber about what were doing to the environment, Brooks said. He patted a white-stained deer sculpture on its fiberglass head. This ones more playful.Theyre applied to sculptures, then varnishedTAVERNIERBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org David Brooks shows some of the pieces that were complemented by birds at the Wild Bird Center complemented with the birdsexcrement.Keynoter photos by KEVINWADLOW Home offices can be energy saversMillions of people in the U.S. work from home, and that saves energy and time by cutting out the commute. But it could also increase your home energy bills a lot unless you use energy-saving office equipment, says the U.S. Department of Energy.DOE says using home office equipment with the Energy Star label can save you as much as 90 percent in electricity on some products. Overall, Energy Starlabeled office products use about half the electricity of standard equipment, the agency says. Along with saving energy directly, such equipment can reduce air-conditioning loads, noise from fans and transformers, and electromagnetic field emissions from monitors. What is Energy Star? Its a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy in which various consumer products, from computers to washing machines, are measured for how efficient they are. The most efficient get the Energy Star label So, about that home office?Shop for Energy Starlabeled computers, copiers, fax machines, monitors, printers, scanners and multifunction devices (fax, scanner, copier). An Energy Star-labeled computer uses 70 percent less electricity than computers without the designation. If left inactive, Energy Starlabeled desktop computers enter a sleep mode and use 4 watts or less. Spending a large portion of time in lowpower mode not only saves energy, but helps equipment run cooler and last longer.To maximize savings with a laptop, put the AC adapter on a power strip that can be turned off or will turn off automatically; the transformer in the AC adapter draws power continuously, even when the laptop is not plugged into the adapter.Common misperceptions sometimes account for the failure to turn off equipment. Many people believe that equipment lasts longer if it is never turned off. This incorrect perception carries over from the days of older mainframe computers.Energy Star-labeled computers and monitors save energy only when the power management features are activated, so make sure power management is activated on your computer.There is a common misperception that screen savers reduce energy use by monitors; they do not. Automatic switching to sleep mode or manually turning monitors off is always the better energysaving strategy.Consider buying a laptop for your next computer upgrade; they use much less energy than desktop computers.Look for the Energy Star designationGREEN LIVING LIVING BRIEFSTwo free plant clinics are todayHaving trouble with a plant?

Saturday,December 17,2011 5B Keynoter KeysNet.com August: Osage County opens the winter theater season at The Waterfront Playhouse. Described by the New York Times as flat-out, no asterisks and without qualifications the most exciting new American play Broadway has seen in years, the play mines the emotional fields of families at the breaking point. Tracy Letts won the Pulitzer Price and Tony Award for his play, which is set in rural Oklahoma where three generations of an extended clan have gathered. The trigger for the coming home is the disappearance of the family patriarch. As the family ties that bind bring all back to the home place, its clear this is not a coming together. What ensues is one bitch of a family reunion that is hilarious, shocking and riveting, writes Danny Walters, artistic director for The Waterfront Playhouse. The play is also a chance to showcase a broad lineup of Key Wests talented actors. Weathers says it may very well be one of the finest ensembles ever gathered on a Key West stage. The cast of 13 includes John Wells (Beverly), Joy Hawkins (Violet), George diBraud (Barbara), Bob Bowersox (Bill), Jessica Miano Kruel (Jean), Chris Stone (Mattie Fae), Tom Murtha (Charlie), Kyle Caskey (Little Charles), George Murphy (Steve), Joe McMurray (Deon) and new to the Waterfront stage are Stephanie Yosen (Ivy), Nicole Nurenberg (Karen) and Shakti Assouline (Johnna). Michael Boyer created the rambling Oklahoma house; Carmen Rodriguez is the costume designer and David Bird created the lighting for August: Osage County. Trish Manley is the stage manager. Christine Dolen, writing for The Miami Herald says of the play: This magnificent play manages to be well-made and utterly contemporary. Not to mention hugely entertaining. Again, the Times review: In August: Osage Countycan be heard echoes of other classic dramas about the strangling grip of blood ties from Eugene ONeills Long Days Journey Into Nightto Sam Shepards Buried Child. But Mr. Letts infuses his dark drama with potent energies derived from two more populist forms of American entertainment. The play has the zip and zingy humor of classic television situation comedy and the absorbing narrative propulsion of a juicy soap opera, too. August: Osage County ran for more than two years on Broadway. Two preview performances are scheduled for Dec. 20-21 with reduced ticket prices of $25 per person. Opening night is Thursday, Dec. 22, and includes a catered postperformance reception, sponsored by Bunnie Smith, that will be held in the sculpture garden in front of the playhouse. Curtain time for all shows is 7:30 p.m. and the play runs through Jan. 14.

So goes a line from the 2008 documentary on the life and exile of Cuban musician Israel Kantor, who defected from Cuba and his famous band, Los Van Van, in 1984. The documentary, by Key West resident Juan OFarrill, will be shown at The Studios of Key West in January. The screenings are part of a larger project undertaken by Leonel Valle and OFarrill exploring the exile experience. Valle, a poet, came to the United States in 1960 on a regular commercial flight. Hes never returned to his homeland. OFarrill came to the United States in 1994 after crossing the Florida Straits in his own handmade raft. Interdicted by the U.S. Coast Guard, he was taken to the U.S. Naval Base at Guantanamo. After a year in custody, he was allowed to enter the United States. Each exile tells his own story and the larger stories of the Cuban diaspora in the exhibit, which will open at The Studios on Wednesday, Dec. 21. The exhibition consists of Valles poetry hung sideby-side with OFarrills paintings, each man telling his own story through a different artistic medium, according to the exhibition guide, each voice as unique as the experience itself. Kantors story underlines the life of exiles. The famous Cuban musician reached the U.S. through Mexico after defecting from Cuba where he was best-known for the Los Van Van band. Born Wilfredo Israel Sardinas in western Cuba, the singer changed his name in 1984 at the suggestion of Puerto Rican musician Johnny Pacheco. After several world tours with Los Van Van, Kantor decided not to return to Cuba. In 2002, Kantor joined the Miami-based Tropicana All Stars orchestra, a group nominated for two Latin Grammy awards and two Grammy awards for their albums, Recuerda a Benny More and Tradicion. Kantor lived and performed in Miami until dying of cancer in 2006. World of Dreams: Perspectives from Three Cuban Exiles, will be on exhibit at The Studios, 600 White St., from Dec. 21 to Jan. 15. Areception for Valle and OFarrill is scheduled from 6-9 p.m. Jan. 4. And screenings of the Kantor documentary will be held at 1 p.m. Jan. 14 and Jan. 15.
