School Board members, agreeing to raise the same amount on the capital side of the tax levy if the measure fails, have carried a message that paints passage as tax neutral. The outcome of this vote will, in no way, change anyones tax bill, board Chairman John Dick repeats at presentations hes given before civic clubs, chamber luncheons, Rotary club gatherings and party meetings held up and down the Keys. I would request that the voters give a yeson this. Our budget has already been reduced...and were looking at further reductions next year; and if we were to add on top of that the referendum, $9-plus million, I believe it would have a serious effect on our student outcomes.

Wigington says shes not runningOne longtime Keys politician could be switching offices this November, while another is calling it quits early in her public service career. Contacted by the Keynoter Friday, Monroe County Commissioner Kim Wigington says she wont seek reelection to the District 1 (Stock Island and Lower Keys) seat on the board, while 29-year Monroe County Clerk Danny Kolhage says he is interested in the job. I always thought when I ran that it would be a fouryear term. I never really thought that it would be something I would continue year after year after year. I came here as a lighthouse keeper and my lifestyle was very different, Wigington said.Wigington became interested in Keys politics after getting involved with Stock Island sewer issues. Shes known to be well versed on issues, particularly dealing with Naval Air Station Key West. I feel like the commission is on track now and the county is headed in the right direction. We have very serious issues were dealing with and a good commission. It makes me feel good, Wigington said. Ironically, it was Kolhage who strongly urged Wigington to reconsider the decision not to run. She says shes thrilled at the possibility of Kolhage taking her seat. Hes very valuable as far as resources and history and hes very knowledgeable, Wigington said. Kolhage told the Keynoter hed always planned to stay active in the community after leaving the Clerks office, but he wasnt expecting a run at commission. He said hes about 80 percent sure hell file for the seat. There were some other things I was looking at, but none of us had any idea Kim wouldnt run, he said.

The moveable $750 million drilling platform was just given a passing grade by inspectors with the U.S. Department of the Interiors Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, as well as members of the U.S. Coast Guard.U.S. inspectors toured the rig while it was in Trinidad and Tobago on invitation from Spanish oil company Repsol, which will be the first of several international drilling companies to explore for oil in Cubas part of the Florida Straits. The agencies released a statement on Monday that their personnel found the vessel to generally comply with existing international and U.S. standards by which Repsol has pledged to abide.The review is consistent with U.S. efforts to minimize the possibility of a major oil spill, which would hurt U.S. economic and environmental interests, the joint Coast Guard/DOI statement says.

The refugees were taken into custody by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The U.S. Coast Guard dispatched two special-purpose enforcement boats to the scene, and sent an aircraft over the area offshore of Big Pine Key. Aspeedboat reportedly left the area at high speed shortly after the 7:30 a.m. incident, witnesses told told authorities. Whether the suspect boat had been located was not known at press time. Customs and Border Protection staff could not be reached at press time. A spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said that agency was not involved.

Resignation on hold?Monday will be a day of reckoning for the Key West Collegiate School community when the board meets a 5 p.m. to discuss whether principal Ashley Roberts, the second school chief in the charters first semester of existence, will continue in her post. Roberts on Monday tendered her resignation, effective Jan. 20, in a letter to board members that cited a number of specific concerns about school operations, but boiled down to without the proper resources or support, [the job] is beyond the efforts of one person. After walking out of a Wednesday board meeting, Roberts met the next morning with board member Carrie Groomes-Davis and board attorney Wayne Larue Smith. Board Chairman Todd German said Roberts agreed to draft a list of ideas and distribute that to the board on Sunday. Shes thinking about staying, he said. Shes at least thinking about having a conversation with the board. Were discussing it.Roberts replaced thenPrincipal Debra Remsen in October after Remsen was ostensibly ousted for not having the proper education and certifications to do the job.Open quarreling among parents and board members marked Remsens exit. That turmoil is mirrored on the board, which has had constant turnover and at least three chairmen. And at the Wednesday meeting, school founder and first board chairman Elias Gerth made clear that the infighting was far from over and responsible for Roberts decision.I think what everybody is missing is the big picture, he said. This school has attempted to be run by amateurs. Leave [Roberts] alone. Let her do her job, and stop the petty, constant, manipulating, behind-the-scenes activity. Thats why I quit.To the assembled parents and board: Everybody here has done a lousy job running this school. When [Roberts] has a chance to run this school, then well judge her. She deserves to be supported. Its parentsactivities that are sabotaging this school.German said if Roberts doesnt agree to stay on, parent Jennifer Cleaver would temporarily step in as she did when Remsen left. In comments she made to German before the meeting, Roberts indicated that overzealous parental involvement was still an issue. Im not here to defend myself, she said, adding her frustration with being stood up in front of the firing squad every week. German was recruited by school parents to serve on the board based on his previous experience working on public boards, He said one item he expected to see on Robertslist was the addition of a volunteer gatekeeper, to handle school communications, particularly with parents, freeing Roberts up to focus on other administrative tasks. The school, with an initial budget of about $321,000, is a public charter that receives state funding through the Monroe County School District, but is not accountable to the district on things like student progression, curriculum and hiring. The district keeps 5 percent of the state allocation as an administrative fee. Key West Collegiate, located through a lease agreement at Florida Keys Community College, began the school year in August with 45 students in grades nine through 12; now that enrollment is down to 37.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com OUR SCHOOLS Watermoccasin strikes park rangerAstate park ranger working near Marathon suffered a bite from a venomous snake Thursday morning while clearing weeds. The Curry Hammock State Park ranger was struck around 10:20 a.m. Thursday while working in undeveloped marshy area off the Overseas Heritage Trail, on the gulfside north of Vaca Cut Bridge. After being bitten by the water moccasin (also known as a cottonmouth), the ranger was taken by Marathon Fire-Rescue ambulance to Fishermens Hospital for initial treatment, then flown by helicopter ambulance to the Kendall Regional Medical Center. The rangers name was not released by state Department of Environmental Protection, which includes the Florida Park Service. His condition at press time Friday was not available. The Venom Response Bureau of the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue department delivered anti-venom to the hospital for the rangers treatment. Lt. Lisa Wood of Venom Response said she had no information on the rangers condition. Reactions to a moccasin bite can range from mild to extremely severe, Wood said. Its potentially fatal but thats highly infrequent. While reports of venomous snakebites in the Florida Keys are rare, experts said rattlesnakes and moccasins are native to all of South Florida. Wood said she was told the ranger was clearing some weeds in a wetland area, an activity that accounts for a significant number of moccasin strikes. We might get four or five cottonmouth bites every few weeks in South Florida, Wood said. It really varies. We might get three in one day, then not have one for several weeks. Florida has more than 50 varieties of snakes but only six are venomous.MARATHONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com Subscriptions 743-5551 Public Meeti n g s Scheduled by a n d with the City of Ma r atho n fo r Ja n ua r y 2012City Cou n cil City Ma n age r Pete Wo r thi n gto n Mayo r Roge r He rns tadt Dick Ram s ay, Vice Mayo r City Atto rn ey s Richa r d Keati n g Cou n cilmembe r Stea rns Weave r Mille r Mike Ci n que, Cou n cilmembe r Wei ss le r Alhadeff Gi n ge r S n ead, Cou n cilmembe r & Sitte rs o n PA CITYOFMARATHONPublished Keynoter 1/14/12SUBJECT : DA TE: TIME: LOCA TION: City Hall Offices Closed01/16/12 Community Ima g e Advisory Board Meetin g 01/17/123:30pmMarathon Fire Station, 8900 Overseas Hwy.

He expects an exploratory well to be drilled within 60 to 70 days of the Scarabeo 9s arrival. The Scarabeo 9 will operate as close as 50 miles from Key West. The prospect of an oil drilling operation taking place that close to the United States has raised concerns from offshore drilling opponents and state and federal lawmakers. Some concern from the latter comes from those opposed to seeing the Communist Castro regime become a major energy player in this hemisphere. U.S. Rep. Ileana RosLehtinens district includes the Keys. Shes a fervent critic of the Castro government and issued a statement this week criticizing the Obama administration for allowing U.S. inspectors to conduct what she calls a routine safety certification of the rig.The issue at hand is a state sponsor of terrorism is poised to achieve a tremendous economic boon by entering the oil business and potentially endangering U.S. waters to boot. It is deeply disappointing that the Obama administration appears content to just watch that happen, she said.Environmentalists are concerned because of the depth of the project. The Scarabeo 9 will drill 6,000 feet underwater. The 2010 DeepWater Horizon/British Petroleum spill in the Gulf of Mexico, which took 85 days to staunch, happened at a depth of 5,500 feet. But Whittle said he believes Cuba is committed to preventing such a disastrous spill from occurring off its coast, and the recent positive U.S. inspection should serve to calm some worries. But he also criticized the United States government for adhering too strongly with its 50-year-old trade embargo against Cuba. This would largely prevent U.S. companies with expertise in oil cleanup from helping in the event of a disastrous spill in Cuban waters. From Story,1 Ferry service apparently stayingIts looking like a busy day for the Pigeon Key Foundation at Wednesdays Monroe County Commission meeting in Key West. The nonprofit group in charge of the landmark island off Marathon is seeking approval for various projects.First up is the final OK from the commission for a two-year, $87,500 annual commitment to fund the ferry from Knights Key to Pigeon Key.The state Department of Transportation has funded the ferry since December 2007 for $250,000 per year after state officials closed the 2.2-mile old Seven Mile Bridge to auto and tour-train traffic because of its dilapidated condition. The old bridge is the only non-water way to get the Pigeon Key. DOTsaid it would no longer fund the service after this year, but foundation President Jason Koler said hes secured verbal commitments from the county, DOT and city of Marathon to pay a portion of the costs. Monroe would be the first to make its contribution official. Koler says DOTwould foot half the bill, or $125,000 per year, while Monroe County, which owns Pigeon Key, would cover 35 percent, or $87,500 per year. The city and foundation would each pay 7.5 percent, or $18,750. Transportation officials have signaled theyre willing to underwrite the ferry for one more year. Secretary [Gus] Pego with the Florida Department of Transportation made a commitment to assist Monroe County and the City of Marathon to finance half of the annual requirement cost to a maximum of $125,000 to maintain the Pigeon Key Ferry service for another year, from July 2012 to June 2013, FDOT spokesman Brian Rick said. The county commission will also consider spending $105,000 in Tourist Development Council funds for a solar array on Pigeon Key. The total project is $209,652, with BB&Tbank financing half that. Koler said going green means the island could ditch two diesel generators its used for years and save roughly $50,000 per year on fuel. The savings would be used to pay off the BB&T loan, he said.Finally, the foundation is seeking approval from the commission to hold a skeetshooting event on the island. Foundation Executive Director Kelly McKinnon said hes aiming for a March date.McKinnon said the event would use biodegradable clay pigeons and non-lead birdshot, and that hes received verbal commitments from all agencies that need to sign off on the event. If the [commission] says its OK, Ill get permission from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, he said.The county resolution requires the event be cleared by the state Department of Environmental Protection, coordinated with the Sheriffs Office and release the county from potential liability. The commission meeting is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. at the Harvey Government Center on Truman Avenue.Foundation also wants TDC funds, skeet shootingBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comPIGEON KEYEnvironmentalists raise concernsTwo found dead off Key WestLower Keys detectives are investigating two separate water deaths off Key West Friday. One man died while scuba diving. The other man was found fully clothed, but without ID, floating about 500 yards off Higgs Beach.Monroe County Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Deputy Becky Herrin said the diver was from Ohio. He was diving off a commercial dive vessel late Friday morning with a group of people doing a test dive in about 30 feet of water.They were prepping for a later dive on the sunken U.S.S. Vandenberg artificial reef. His group said he surfaced and gave the OK sign, but when they saw him just minutes later, he was floating on the surface and not breathing.He was taken to the Lower Keys Medical Center on Stock Island, where he was pronounced dead. An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.As of Friday afternoon, Sheriffs Office Detective Manny Cuervo was trying to reach the mans family.

Early voting starts Monday and runs until Saturday, Jan. 28, followed by the actual primary on Jan. 31. In that timeframe, votes can be cast at the three Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Offices: 530 Whitehead St. in Key West; 490 63rd St. oceanside in Marathon; 102050 Overseas Hwy. in Key Largo; the Big Pine Key Library, 213 Key Deer Blvd.; and the Islamorada Branch Library, 81830 Overseas Hwy. Based on projections for the fiscal year beginning July 1, School District staff said schools already face a potential $5 million budget gap. If the referendum fails, that number could top $14 million. Voters originally approved the measure shifting tax revenue from construction to operating expenses in 2004 and again in 2008. According to data from the Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Office, there are 50,958 registered voters in the Florida Keys. Of those, Republicans maintain a healthy lead at 19,164, followed by 17,249 registered as Democrats and 14,545 listed as other. In 2008, more than two out of every three Keys voters who cast ballots in that years presidential preference primary voted to extend the half-mill shift. The tally was 76 percent voting yes compared to 24 percent who voted no.Budget gap could be $14 millionFrom Voting,1A Plannerpushes more coordinationCity Planner Don Craig envisions a more beautiful Key West, achieved through comprehensive urban design standards, and strong interdepartmental coordination.Craig broached the subject last month when addressing the citys Historical Architectural Review Commission regarding a Virginia Street sidewalk project that generated protests.This after the city installed five-foot wide sidewalks along Virginia Street that took out several large trees, numerous parking spaces and some private walls found to be on public right-of-way.In an interview with the Keynoter on Thursday, Craig said once the citys new urban forestry expert Paul Williams comes on board Jan. 23, he will begin forming a two-year program including HARC, the Tree Commission, Planning Board and City Commission.He said the goal is to continue to maintain a healthy tree canopy, provide additional landscaping where required, provide flexibility in the types of landscaping we have and integrate that with everything we do on street-signage, sidewalk improvements, benches all of the things that one must look at from an urban design standpoint.Craig said that along with establishing some broad goals and strategies based on public input, a program priority would be to identify particular target areas, perhaps entranceways to the city, historic neighborhoods or commercial corridors.He acknowledged a longplanned and finally progressing park development at the 33acre Truman Waterfront and a planned two-year, $40 million rebuild of North Roosevelt Boulevard as opportunities to incorporate the as-yet undeveloped design standards.It seemed natural to use that as a kick-off for doing a citywide beautification program, Craig said, stressing the need for a consistent and holistic approach.Another plus, the planner said, is that instead of requiring new funding sources to implement, his goal was to simply apply this integrated approach to existing, funded projects.I think this is something people, even in lean times, can get behind. To say the place in which we live is important; how it looks is important; and were going to do something about it. Key West deserves that.

His top four candidates for the vacant chief position with Marathon Fire Rescue pitched themselves Tuesday to the City Council, and all boasted impressive resumes and a desire to live in the Florida Keys.The candidates made brief presentations during the councils meeting and took limited questions from the council. Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay said the questioning was limited because council members met at length with the candidates prior to the meeting.Hernstadt has involved us in the process and that was nice on his part. Weve asked a lot of questions already, he said.The final decision on whom to hire lies with Hernstadt, but he wanted the council and public to hear from the applicants. They are: William Amador of Tequesta in Palm Beach County. Hes been a firefighter since 1992 and was with the Palm Beach Fire Rescue Department from May 1994 through January 2011.Gregory Hoggatt of Winter Garden. Hoggatt has held numerous positions within the Orlando Fire Department since 1995 and is now a deputy chief/paramedic.John Johnson of Lake Worth in Palm Beach County. Johnson has been a firefighter since 1981 and held numerous positions with the Boca Raton Fire Rescue Department since 1988. Hes been a deputy chief since 2005.Derryl ONeal of Minneola, just west of Orlando. ONeal has been in fire rescue since 1981, including stints as chief at three Florida departments (Charlotte County, Madeira Beach and Minneola). They all have the type of experience that would serve us well. Some of them have some unique credentials and Ill be studying them over the next couple of days, Hernstadt said. He said he hasnt set a date to make a decision.Hernstadt to choose from the final fourBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONCunningham makes it official hes runningMichael Cunningham, 43, of Ramrod Key on Thursday became the third person to officially become a candidate for the Monroe County School Board District 3 seat now held by Duncan Mathewson. Mathewson, a two-term incumbent, hasnt said whether hell seek another four-year term on the board. Cunningham is the executive director of the Marathon-based Florida Keys Area Health Education Center and also serves as president of the Fishermens Community Hospital board of directors. He said, with his filing, hed immediately get to work gathering petitions, fundraising and the most important part, getting out there and talking to residents of this community.Cunningham called budget and finance critical issues. But we need to be concerned with a lot more than that. You have to have long term planning. Youve got to look at what youre doing with your teachers and students and really focus on that. It seems as though we have been reactionary and there is no plan, really, for the short term, which would be within the school year, then the long term, looking at what your threeto five-year goals are. That needs to be done.Cunninghams two children attend Poinciana Elementary School in Key West. Others already filed for the District 3 seat: retired Big Pine Key attorney Mark Peterson, and Larry Murray, also of Big Pine. Murray was Mathewsons appointment to the districts advisory Audit and Finance Committee until December, when Mathewson declined to reappoint him. Dan Dombroski, the longtime executive director of the Boys and Girls Club of Key West, has said hes considering a run but has not yet filed. The board post pays about $29,000 per year.

For more information and a list of all library branches, visit: www.keys libraries.org FEMAOKs extensionLast-minute talks between Monroe County and the Federal Emergency Management Agency to stave off possible National Flood Insurance Program probation reached a compromise late Friday. Chief Assistant County Attorney Bob Shillinger declined to discuss specifics of the negotiations, but said the two sides were close to a deal. He was negotiating with FEMAs general counsel office in Washington, D.C. The two are at odds over FEMAmandating that the county be responsible for determining whether some 50,000 parcels of land contain threatenedor endangered-species habitat. The mandate is part of a December 2010 settlement between the federal government and environmental groups who sued FEMA and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 1990. The suit claimed that allowing flood insurance in threatened or endangeredspecies habitat violates the Endangered Species Act. Twice, Monroe County has been denied status to intervene in the suit and now argues the county shouldnt be responsible for the settlement deal worked out by the feds. While development is still possible on lots found to contain habitat, the county could be on the hook for an estimated $65 million in takings claims if property owners sue and claim the county denied use of their land through regulation. We were trying to get them [FEMA] to hold off on issuing the letter, Shillinger said. We couldnt overcome some fundamental issues and so theyre going to go ahead and issue the letter and well challenge it in court. Shillinger said FEMA was expected to send a probation notice letter either late Friday or Tuesday after the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. FEMAdid not respond to requests for comment by press time Friday. Probation from the lowcost federal program would affect roughly 18,000 flood insurance policy holders in unincorporated Monroe County, putting them on the hook for nearly $900,000 combined in penalties. The penalty comes in the form of a $50 surcharge on policies up for renewal. Shillinger told the Keynoter the county plans to move forward with plans to sue FEMAand Fish and Wildlife after notice of probation arrives. The suit would allege the settlement violates a number of federal laws including the Endangered Species Act and Administrative Procedures Act. Its going to get filed shortly after we get the letter, he said. On Wednesday, the County Commission is scheduled to discuss and give staff direction on adopting a law to implement FEMAs program. County staff prepared a draft they believe wouldnt expose the county to potential takings claims. The commission meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. at the Harvey Government Center in Key West. Reprieve means negotiations will continueBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTYBank of America closing Village branchBank of America is closing its Islamorada branch in March, company officials confirmed this week.The branch, at 8154 Old Highway, will shut its doors on March 30, said Christina Beyer Toth, Southeast media relations manager for Bank of America. Customersaccounts will be transferred without disruption in service to the Bank of America branch in Tavernier at mile marker 92, bayside, Toth said. The bank has seven branches in the Keys, and the Islamorada location appears to be the only one that is closing. But Toth said to expect more branches across the country to shutter.While we continue to expand and invest in our banking center network through more personalized services and expertise, we project that ultimately the number of banking centers we have nationwide will continue to decline, Toth said in an e-mail. She did not say how many employees work in the Islamorada branch or what will happen to them after the office closes. An employee who answered the phone at the office referred all questions to Toth. Toth said if there are layoffs, We provide a variety of assistance including helping employees find employment opportunities within the company.Toth said the decision to shut down the branch was based on consumer demand.Judy Hull, executive director of the Islamorada Chamber of Commerce, said that the bank notified her office that the Tavernier branch is its new contact. Toth said all customers who bank at the Islamorada location have been told of the consolidation. The nearest Upper Keys Bank of America branch beyond Tavernier is at mile marker 99.5 in Key Largo. The bank also has branches in Marathon, Big Pine Key and Key West. March 30 closing, service moving to TavernierBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comISLAMORADAProsecution builds cases against teenProsecutors are still developing a case against Ryan Tomita, 19, arrested and charged in April with 32 felony and six misdemeanor charges all related to a series of Lower Keys auto break-ins.Assistant Monroe County State Attorney Christine Poist said all the cases against Tomita, more than a dozen, are still pending and in the evidentiary discovery phase.Poist also said that, if he were to actually stand trial, she would have to try each case separately because they involved different victims and circumstances. Tomita, of Key Haven, was arrested on April 5, and continued accruing charges until April 26, as Monroe County Sheriffs Office detectives matched recovered stolen property with the people who had been victimized. And in the age of social media, the Sheriffs Office said Tomitas undoing was a March 17, FaceBook post: If you ask me Ima [sic] tell you crime pays. Asubsequent search warrant of his bedroom turned up stolen cameras, jewelry, GPS units, and items stolen from the vehicle of a federal immigration agent, including a badge, gun belt, handcuffs, expandable baton, pepper spray and bullet-proof vest.Poist said that Tomita, who eventually made a $63,000 bond, is on supervised release that includes a curfew, regularly checking-in with corrections officials and approval of his work schedule at his familys restaurant, Chicos Cantina on Stock Island.Alot of the people that were hit were snowbirds, Poist said, so to track down the victims and verify whose property was what took a long time to do. Former Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Richard Fowler, now in private practice, represents Tomita. Charges filed include burglary, grand theft, criminal mischief, marijuana cultivation and possession of drug equipment.

Ive been an active volunteer at the Marathon Skate Park since 2001. I am at the park two to four evenings per week as a volunteer in the Educational Coalition for Monroe County Snack Shack. The stand is not for profit; it is there with the intent to provide a service for participants and in support of the park. Since supervision was removed from the park, the atmosphere has drastically changed. The ECMC has played an active role in the park since 2001. When supervision was removed, ECMC was assured the city would monitor the park. Photos documenting incidents have been sent to city staff and council members for several months without response. Incidents are often witnessed at the park. Young children are unsupervised, often without helmets, and on more than one occasion have been stuck in the bottom of the bowl. Helmets are very rarely worn by park participants. Posted rules are not consistently enforced. Foul language, violence and disrespect have become regular occurrences. Atrash can at the park has already been tagged with graffiti; it is just a matter of time before the ramps are. There has been a large increase in the population of bicyclists using the park without supervision; it is not long before the small clashes in culture between them and the skateboarders will become far more dangerous. Promises have been made that supervision will be returned. The ECMC was asked to recommend a few strong candidates; three qualified ones were found. This position needs to have the right person in it and these people will not be able to hold off while the city decides if it will even fill the position. I am very familiar with skate culture and, if left unsupervised, this will only become worse. The ECMC has worked hard to partner with the city to return the park back to the safe, healthy environment it was for several years, with supervision where skaters of all levels felt safe to increase their skills and hang out while families were assured there was supervision. I urge the city to return supervision in the evenings immediately and consider the best interests of the youths and families in our community when addressing the needs of the park. It can remain open days but during the busy evening hours needs to be supervised. Christina Belotti MarathonMarina saves waterOn July 15, I sent an impassioned plea to do the right thing to the Marathon City Council with regard to the amazing amount of water that is collected on the city marina roof. I wrote that this water passes from a gutter into and through a series of PVC pipes until it exits through a 12inch opening onto the tarmac and into the harbor. It should be flowing into a cistern where it could be used for maintenance, landscaping, boat washing, etc. Amini-monsoon in October unleashed 13 inches of water in Marathon. In five days, about 125,000 gallons of water went to waste. The commissioners responded by saying it was a great idea but all they had to offer were budget-related for why it couldnt be done. Since then, I have read multiple articles about huge amounts of money for such projects as splash parks, zip lines and trees in the median. In late July, the city marina staff took the initiative to install water-saving faucets in the showers. Despite some shower usersefforts to rig the faucets to keep the water running, the actions of the marina staff made a huge difference. From August to December showed a decrease from the same time the previous year of 143,400 gallons of water. The drop in water use also affected the marinas sewer bill, saving the city even more money. I would like to commend marina director Richard Tanner and his staff for doing the right thing for all the right reasons and I would like to encourage the city government to do the same. Jeanne Ketcher MarathonIsland chain celebrates centennial of Flaglers Key West Extension Next Sunday, Key West will host a parade to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Henry Flaglers arrival by train to the Southernmost City. Its hard to underestimate the impact this visionary industrialist had on the Florida Keys. And, even though there may be some debate a century later, his bridging of deep ocean waters helped connect this chain of islands in ways that no one else has quite managed. Reading the history of the Florida East Coast (FEC) Railway and the pioneering feats of engineering accomplished, one is struck by the will and determination of this onetime grain merchant who became a major player in the fledgling Standard Oil. Ahoneymoon trip to St. Augustine in 1883 reshaped his life and ironically the Florida Keys (though that was to come two decades later). His first venture into railroads came as a result of that honeymoon visit. Flagler purchased a regional railroad (which later became the FEC) and built the 540-room Hotel Ponce de Leon in St. Augustine. As Flagler pushed south, he built a series of luxury hotels down Floridas east coast helping spark what would become Floridas biggest industry tourism. Then, in 1905, with the Panama Canal project in mind, Flagler decided to extend his rail lines south of Miami and go all the way to Key West, where he built docks for his shipping company and envisioned a major commercial port to rival others in the Caribbean. That construction project, which stretched over a seven-year period, has been properly called the Eighth Wonder of the World. For the first time, it connected Key West to the mainland in a way that opened the doors for commerce, giving birth to a more robust shipping industry, commercial fishing industry and later tourism. Seth Bramson, the FECs official historian and a Miami author, writes that the Keys were, with the completion of the railroad, a completely different world. How true. One hundred years later, Keys residents can celebrate that legacy at a host of events, starting with a picnic and tours today (Saturday) on Pigeon Key, a train exhibit Sunday at Crane Point Hammock in Marathon, a gala dinner-dance next Saturday (Jan. 21) at Flaglers historic Casa Marina Hotel (now a Waldorf Astoria resort) in Key West, and the big Key West parade next Sunday (Jan. 22). The parade kicks off at 1 p.m. at Higgs Beach and finishes at the Custom House, 281 Front St., with speeches and the opening of an expanded Speedway to Sunshine exhibit. If you want to be a part of history, this centennial observance is your perfect chance. Grateful for supportReynolds Water Islamorada wishes to thank all of our supporters of the comprehensive wastewater proposal that our team submitted recently to the village of Islamorada. The strong support was apparent throughout the process, and especially during the final selection workshop. We spent many years learning about the needs and challenges within the community that went well beyond just the wastewater program. With this experience, we developed the best value proposal, played by the rules and followed the requirements of the request for proposals. As many know, our proposal included complete wastewater service to all property owners within the village, full pavement overlay of roads that would have been disturbed by utility installation, GIS mapping, an environmentally safe 3,000-foot deep well and other important betterments for the community. We also proposed real solutions to maintaining beneficial reuse water for customers in the village. We appreciate the welcome our team received from the community and the many calls of support before and after the Village Council vote. From day one, we set out to protect the environment and provide for an economically sound utility system. Reynolds Water Islamorada also benefited from this experience and will take the lessons learned and apply this experience to benefit future clients. Although a council majority did not select us, Reynolds Water Islamorada and our strong American parent company Layne Christensen stand ready to implement our proposal if the village leadership has a change of heart. Wesley Self Reynolds Water Orleans, Ind. Our communitys children are our most valuable assets. They represent the future quality of life for the Florida Keys. Keeping the Keys family-friendly is hugely important to help maintain our sense of community. We have 8,405 students who go to school every day in 17 schools, of which six are public charter schools. The only sensible vote is to continue to support our schools, helping to attract new families and maintain property values. On the Jan. 31 ballot, there is a referendum to continue flexible school funding. We must vote yes to permit the continued transfer of money from capital accounts to the classroom, where the money is actually needed. This is not a tax increase. Its a reauthorization for another four years of what we have been doing since 2004. By voting yes, voters will allow a portion (.5 mill) of an existing capital property tax to be used for operations such as teachers, school nurses and classroom supplies. Failure to pass this measure means that existing taxes will be frozen in capital accounts and not be available to pay the daily costs of running our schools. Should voters thoughtlessly or unknowingly vote no, some $9.8 million in funding for teachers, student athletics, art and music programs, and school supplies will be lost. It must be stressed that all students and teachers will be negatively impacted perhaps with closed schools, longer bus routes and reduced course offerings. This would not be a wise outcome. There has been well-publicized turbulence and dubious spending in our School District in recent years. But that is the past. Voters should understand that cost reductions are the order of the day now. The operating budget has already been cut from $90 million last year to $80 million this year. The superintendent and the School Board have acknowledged that continued reform is in the cards for next year. While all of us would like instant action, right-sizing our district takes professional planning and some time to implement change. This is happening. Im pleased to see good collaborative work being done with both Superintendent Jesus Jara and the board focused on more cost reduction without impacting student achievement. Anegative vote on this referendum would be disruptive, to say the least. How are the schools? Heres the good news: Despite the turmoil and leadership changes in the recent past, student achievement has continued to rise. This is a tribute to the hard work of teachers and school leaders who didnt take their eye off the ball. As a member of the Florida Board of Education, I have a unique perspective on the state of our schools. They are improving. We are implementing a national common core standard curriculum to raise the bar in Florida. We aim to compete favorably with the rest of the country and internationally. Expectations for student achievement have been raised, as have expectations for our teachers and staff as we transition into statewide merit pay requirements. Reaching these heights with funding under pressure is not easy, but must be done. Monroes schools now rank eight out of 67 counties in Florida based on student achievement. By almost every measure, Monroe is pretty good and certainly getting better. Monroes students increasingly take Advanced Placement and other higher-level courses. With six public charter schools, the school choice options in our communities have never been greater, and 12 percent of Monroes kids have opted for a charter school. Monroe is still ranked as an A district in Florida, but with higher standards, it will be harder to keep that ranking. Both Monroe and the entire state are moving in the right direction, and making steady progress. Why is this referendum important? Education is the currency of the 21st Century. High-quality education for Monroes kids links them inextricably to high-paying jobs. We taxpayers know that a thriving economic future for Florida and our nation depends on our students being internationally competitive. This referendum is the vehicle to exert significant local control over the way our taxes are spent. Should it fail to pass, money will have to be spent on state-prescribed capital projects. I urge you to vote yes on this referendum. It wont change our taxes, but it will benefit our schools, our kids and the future of the Keys.Vote yes for continued flexible funding PADGETLETTERS TO THE EDITOR GUEST COLUMNJohn Padget lives in Key West and is a member of the Florida Board of Education.

How to choose your financial advisorsQuestion: Our family owns a fairly successful construction company and a couple of smaller related businesses. After following your columns for a few years, we began to wonder if we have the right people as financial advisors. How do we tell? If its time to go looking for a new advisor, how do you find the right one? Answer: Lets first talk about the term financial advisor. The investment community has adopted this term to describe people that used to be known as stockbrokers. The term has come to have this specific meaning among financial professionals, but the general populous is sometimes confused about this specific use of the term and the more generic meaning, which is anyone who renders financial advice. Except as otherwise noted, I will be using the term generically. Lets talk about who should be on your team. Any but the smallest Keys business should have several people on their advisory team with working knowledge of the following areas: General business law.Real estate law.Estate and gift taxes.Accounting.Income taxes.Business planning.Investments. I listed the essential elements of your team by area rather than by the type of professional (accountant, attorney, stockbroker, etc.) because in some cases, someone may have expertise in more than one area. For example, I know at least two attorneys in the Keys who are competent in both general business law and real estate law. And some accountants are competent in accounting, income taxes, estate and gift taxes, and business planning. You should probably address the most important team member first, and that would be your trusted business advisor. This should be the advisor whom you trust the most through experience over time. Many of us who have served in the role of trusted business advisor have client relationships that go back more than 20 years; some of my relationships go back only several months. The essential point, though, is trust. If you cant immediately point to someone like this among your advisors, finding that person should be your first priority. The trusted business advisor may be any one of your advisory team members. He or she can be an accountant, attorney, stockbroker or anyone else who has general business and financial knowledge and a fairly good idea of the particulars of your family and your business. Once the trusted business advisor is on board, he or she can be used to recommend other people as your financial advisors. In looking for these folks, some of my clients have asked for help in interpreting the various credentials that exist among financial people, including accountants. Avery helpful article along these lines appeared in the Wall Street Journal last week. Written by business reporter Karen Blumenthal, How to Build Your Financial Dream Team goes into detail about who should be on the team and what the various credentials and licenses out there really mean. The complete article is available free from the Journal website.Here are a few observations from my experiences in helping Florida Keys clients:Be aware that a license may not denote competence. For example, many licenses simply mean the person was knowledgeable about the laws required to sell you something at the time he or she passed a test (a Series 7 securities license, for example).More than a few industries make up professional designations that are easy to obtain by people with minimal education and experience. For example, according to the Kaplan University/Dearborn Financial Services website (www.dearborn.com), a wealth management specialist designation requires only that the advisor have a high school education or GED, take a self-study course and pass a certification exam.Some of my clients feel that the credentials that hold the most weight are issued by The Florida Bar (board certified in certain areas like real estate, estate and gift taxes, etc.), the U.S. and state accountancy bodies that issue and maintain compliance for the CPAand related designations, and the PFP(Personal Financial Planning) credential. All of these designations require college degrees or substantial college-level coursework, difficult written examinations and substantial experience in order to gain and maintain the designation. In addition, many of these designations require the holder to keep his or her knowledge current. CPAs, for example, are required to attend 80 hours of continuing professional education per year. That works out to a time commitment of one week per year in addition to significant costs to acquire and attend the training. Are credentials everything? Of course not. Any person being considered for a role on your team should be evaluated based upon experience, education, personality fit, technical competence as proven through a list of verifiable references, and recommendations from your trusted business Advisor, banker and other professionals. Now that you know all of this, how about getting out there and making some money? Larry Kendzior is a certified public accountant and business consultant with more than 30 years of experience helping owners address these and other complex business issues.

LARRY KENDZIOR Medical bills can be negotiatedThink back to the last time you saw your doctor and had to have some sort of procedure. Did you ask how much it would cost? Chances are, you didnt. When we visit a medical professional, not many of us consider ourselves consumers or buyers of health care, but thats exactly what we are. As such, you have the right to know the price of a procedure beforehand and whether you can afford it. And if the price seems too high, you have the right to question it. The last thing most patients want to do is haggle with their doctors, but a little bit of negotiating can go a long way, said Dr. John Santa, director of the Consumer Reports Health Ratings Center. Its also important to know that there are tremendous variations in health care costs. Knowing this can help a consumer get a hand up and politely insist on the fairest possible price. As medical costs rise, employers increasingly are requiring workers to shoulder more of the cost for health care. At the same time, unemployment has stripped millions of their health insurance. Americans are overwhelmed by health costs, and many people simply cant pay their bills, cant afford their medications, said Santa, an internist. If you have trouble paying your health care bill, dont be afraid to speak up. Consumers should not assume the price on their bill is set in stone, Santa said. Providers often discount rates substantially to insurers and others, so why shouldnt a consumer ask for the same rate reduction? C. Bruce Malone, president of the Texas Medical Association, agreed and said negotiating ones medical bill is done all the time. Malone said doctors are unlikely to negotiate down a health insurance payment because its simply very low anyway. But he said they may negotiate if youre paying the entire bill out of your own pocket. If youre uninsured and youre paying cash and you have a very high deductible, like with a health savings account, then a patient may well be able to negotiate because theyre facing a full retail charge, said Malone, an Austin orthopedic surgeon. Heres what you need to know to negotiate lower medical bills:The best time for you to discuss costs with your health-care providers is when youre healthy. While doctors have a professional obligation to take a patients financial resources into account, patients should raise the issue with their doctors to let them know that costs are important to them, Santa said. For a variety of reasons, doctors are likely to suggest the most expensive options first, he said. But you might be surprised by your doctors willingness to change course, for example, prescribing fewer expensive brand-name drugs or choosing watchful waiting over a costly diagnostic test, Santa said.If youre having elective surgery, you have more time to plan and research the best procedure, doctor, hospital, drug and other options. Use your time wisely to do the research, because variations in health care costs can be significant, and providers will gladly let you overpay for a service that you could get for less, Santa said. Dont be afraid to ask for the price of a procedure up front and get it in writing. Request an itemized list of all potential charges.Once youve been treated, closely examine each bill to identify errors, which are common.Doctors and hospitals want to get paid, so ask about a payment plan.Haggling can lower the costs of your treatmentMcClatchy-TribunePERSONAL FINANCE Business

Story, 3B Green living Changing your diet for the better is easier if you choose to go with organic food.Story, 3B B Sports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Conchs hold off Gulliver comebackRyan Wagner scored 32 points, JeQuan Lopez made a game-saving basket at the end of regulation, and the Key West High boys basketball team stayed undefeated with a 69-63 double-overtime victory over Gulliver Prep in a District 16-4A game Tuesday night in Miami. The victory gave the Conchs an 8-0 overall record (4-0 in district) going into their game Thursday night at Coral Shores. It was the first time this season that Key West trailed late in a game. And it was very late. Gulliver, which had been behind by 16 points, staged a frenzied fourth-quarter comeback fueled by a full-court press and the 3point shooting of Enrique LaFuente and took the lead at 49-47 when LaFuente made a three-point play with 25 seconds left in the period. But Lopez, a 6-foot-5 senior forward, made a shot with 7.9 seconds left to tie it at 49-49 and send the game into overtime. He looked at me, I looked at him ... and he drove to the basket, said coach Anton Lopez, JeQuans father. In the first overtime, Lopez scored all five of the Conchspoints and it was 54-54 entering the second OT. In that four-minute period, the Conchs outscored the Raiders, 15-7, with Wagner scoring five points, including two technical foul shots with 43 seconds left. Elliot Valdez added three crucial free throws. Wagners 32 points he made four 3-pointers were the most scored by a Conch since Keith Valdez scored 33 against Marathon on Dec. 16, 2009. He did a heck of a job, Anton Lopez said of Wagner, a 5-7 senior guard. When he made his first couple of shots, we told him to find open spots and keep shooting. The Conchs, who had defeated Gulliver, 70-55, earlier in the season, ran off 20 consecutive points in the first quarter to take a 22-6 lead. They led at the half, 24-11, and after the third quarter, 34-24. Lopez, who was scoreless in the first half, had 13 points, as did center Anthony Rice. Junior Guieb scored eight and Valdez scored three. Gulliver was led by LaFuente, who made four 3pointers and had 24 points. Stacy Thomas, who did not play the first time the teams met, had 20.Hoops team gets 69-63 win in overtimeBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASKETBALL Freshman squad still laying groundwork for next yearCoral Shoresgirls basketball Hurricanes are still looking for a win as the regular season winds down. The Lady Canes (0-7) fell to St. Brendan, 45-10, Tuesday in the final home game of the Coral Shores season. Coral Shores is scheduled to wrap up the regular season with road games at Key West on Jan. 20, and Marathon High School on Jan. 25. Results from a game earlier this week at Gulliver Prep were pending at press time. Since the Lady Canes start three freshmen with no seniors on the roster, this season always was going to be about laying groundwork, said coach Pat Meyers. We as a team understand that this is a rebuilding year, Meyers said. We are striving to get better for the next couple of years [by] teaching the girls fundamentals and learning how to play competitive high-school basketball. Guard Brooklyn Irwin and forward Jackie Boyle have been leading the Canes, along with developing players including Alexis Tarafa, Emma Muchesic and Kyia Herlth among others. Im really pleased how the girls are working toward getting better, and making the effort in practice as well as games, Meyers said. I couldnt ask for a better bunch of kids.Coach envisions rebuilding year for Lady CanesBy KEVIN WADLOWKeynoter ContributorCANES BASKETBALL Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWDonald Roberts (13) of Key West goes airborne in an attempt to get around the defense of Coral Shores forward Aldon Todd in the Conchs66-41 win Thursday in Tavernier.Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWCoral Shores guard Brooklyn Irwin (4),one of the young players on a rebuilding Hurricane squad,drives around a St.Brendan defender in Tuesdays loss. Cane guards post 30 in loss to ConchsThe undefeated Conchs of Key West High School came at Coral ShoresHurricanes in waves Thursday, pulling away to a 66-41 win in Tavernier. Two Hurricanes, guard Alberto Anderson and center Will Ismer, each scored 15 points, more than anyone on the Conch roster. But 13 of the 14 players on Key West coach Anton Lopezs squad scored as the Conchs rotated freely, sitting their starting unit for most of the second and fourth quarters. We wanted our starters to come strong and get a good lead so we could break our younger guys in, Lopez said as the Conchs improved to 9-0. We anticipated that we would have a good season but Im not sure that we thought wed be 9-0, Lopez said. We could have stumbled somewhere along the way, but Im very happy to be undefeated. These guys are working hard. Coral Shores (4-11) stayed competitive when the Conchs starters were out but were undone by a 19-4 third quarter against Key Wests first teamers. We played a very good game in the first half but its like we didnt come out of the locker room after halftime, Hurricane coach Jay Sanderson said.

From Conchs,1B Two Keys hi g h schools join new athletic conferenceMarathon and Coral Shores hi g h schools are amon g 14 South Florida football pro g rams droppin g out of the Florida Hi g h School Athletic Association to create an independent football conference. Dolphins coach Lance Martin said the idea for the newly formed Southeast Football Conference g rew lar g ely out of a lack of parity in the last round of FHSAA redistrictin g Marathon was bunched in with state powers University School and HollywoodChaminade Prep in District 16-3Athis year. The Dolphins were one of five teams to bail out of that district. Once we played out the season and saw how the competitive balance was out of whack in football with our district, we decided to look into the possibility of startin g this lea g ue, Martin said. Its the best thin g for all of us ri g ht now. Athletically, and our philosophy on how hi g h school athletics should be run, were all on the same pa g e. The response was overwhelmin g I would say there was between 20 and 25 [schools] that inquired what the lea g ue was all about, Martin said, addin g the conference is a one-year experiment to start with. The state redistricts after next football season, so well see if they can come up with a solution to the size differences in the schools, he said. For Coral Shores coach Ed Holly, the decision to join the conference was an easy one. It worked out very well for us because we were an independent and have an opportunity to play likeminded teams in the lea g ue, he said. Its also important for us to continue to be able to play Marathon. We were able to keep historical rivalries and the tradition that entails, and join a conference. The conference will be made up of two seven-team divisions. The South Division includes Marathon, Coral shores, Archbishop Curley, Miami Country Day, LaSalle Hi g h, Ransom Ever g lades and Florida Christian. The North Division stretches as far north as Fort Pierce and includes Pope John Paul II Hi g h, Westminster Academy, The Benjamin School, John Carroll Catholic, Pine Crest, Saint Andrews School and Coral Sprin g s Charter. Each team will have an open date in week one to schedule an openin g g ame. Weeks two throu g h ei g ht will be conference play, and weeks nine and 10 will be a built-in playoff system. Each team is g uaranteed two postseason contests. Marathon,Coral Shores dropping FHSAA affiliationBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comHIGH SCHOOL SPORTSGuieb scores 14 Durkin notches five g oals in 6-0 shutoutStaunch defense and a fiveg oal performance from junior Riley Durkin helped the Marathon Hi g h School boys soccer team to a 6-0 shutout win over District 16 rival Westminster Christian School Thursday. The convincin g win helped offset the stin g of a Tuesday loss to Florida Christian School Tuesday. Were pleased that on both sides of the ball we played a g ood g ame to g ether, and its always nice to do that a g ainst one of our fiercest district rivals, coach Chris Bull said of the Westminster g ame. Bull heaped praise on the back line of Edwin Ibanez, Connor Boyd, Ariel Rodri g uez and Marco Ceja, who helped secure the shutout. They were exceptional and nothin g g ot by them, he said. Durkin started the scorin g off just three minutes into the g ame, takin g a ball from Oscar Del g ado in the 18-yard box and chippin g it in before bein g knocked to the g round. Ricky Ceja was fouled just one minute later in the 18-yard box and Durkin converted the penalty kick to put the Dolphins up 2-0 early. The score was 2-0 at halftime, but Marathon wasted little time pourin g it on after the break. Kevin McKeon hit Anthony Garcia with a pass that he chipped over the g oalies head in the 45th minute. Durkin scored on nearly identical plays in the 47th and 48th minutes. Del g ado and Ciro Cammarata lifted balls over the defense that Durkin picked up and scored off of. Durkins final g oal came in the 66th minute. Boyd made a throw-in to Del g ado, who did a g ive-andg o with Durkin to put Marathon up 6-0. The Dolphins didnt fare as well Tuesday a g ainst the Patriots. They were a fast, physical team similar to Key West. They did not g ive us much space or time in the midfield. As soon as we started to take two or three touches on the ball they were comin g down on our players and runnin g throu gh us, Bull said. Marathon only dressed 13 players for the g ame and lost Marco Ceja and Durkin to injury. Ricky Ceja scored in the third minute off a crossin g ball into the 18-yard box, but Florida Christian rattled off four strai g ht g oals in the fifth, 18th, 27th and 33rd minutes to pull ahead.

Seniors Trevelle Beckford and Dwayne Ellis each scored 14 points and were the only Dolphins players to score points in the g ame. This is probably the best team we played all year. They have tall g uards that really affected our g uard play, coach Kevin Freeman said. Freeman said the team stru gg led to g et g oin g in its first g ame after a three-week holiday layoff. The Dolphins committed 20 turnovers, many leadin g to fast break points for Carroll on the other end. We had g reat practices but it just didnt carry over to the g ame, Freeman said. The Dolphins trailed 11-5 after one quarter, with Beckford scorin g all five points. The Carroll lead g rew to 13 points at the half, 29-16.

These issues include minor skin irritations, mild arthritis in hands, knees and feet, digestive and gastrointestinal problems, occasional sleeplessness and restless leg syndrome. Despite this, we consider ourselves relatively healthy but we are always open to ideas to keep healthy. Last year, we completed an elimination diet, eliminating foods that are known to cause allergies. Allergies are shown in many ways and its not always in the form of a skin rash or a stomach upset. After six weeks when our bodies have adjusted, we reintroduce one of the allergic foods every four days and monitor changes in our body. Any adverse reaction, for example, feeling bloated during those four days, is possibly related to that food weve just re-introduced. Lately, for health and environmental reasons, we have been eating more fruit and vegetables and incorporating hormone and antibiotic-free chicken, dairy, eggs and meat as much as possible. So how did this diet work? On Day 1, we had to eliminate dairy, eggs, the nightshade plants (tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, white potatoes), all wheat (flour) and gluten-containing products, sugar and anything processed. We could eat all the fresh fruit and vegetables we could handle, chicken and meat (hormone and antibiotic-free if possible), wildcaught fish, raw nuts, brown rice, lentils, beans, almond or rice milk and thankfully alcohol, though in moderation. We craved sugar so much in the first week. It got so bad that we borrowed an icecream maker and made almond milk ice cream with agave syrup (allowed) so we would have something sweet in the evenings. It did the trick. We missed bread and substituted with rice cakes. At meal times, we bulked up on roasted sweet potatoes, brown rice, beans and lots of vegetables. I really missed cows milk in my breakfast tea and coffee so I gave up breakfast tea and drank black coffee and green tea instead. My husband found huge improvements in his arthritis and for the first time in years was able to jog up to two miles without pain. Eliminating dairy also improved his GI issues. And eliminating refined wheat products and sugar reduced minor skin rashes that would flare up. We made it to four weeks, not six, but felt the benefits anyway. We lost weight, slept better and had more energy. We determined that sugar and wheat products were connected to my husbands arthritis. We now eat very little wheat and sugar. We continue to eat lots of fruit and vegetables. The Mediterranean style of eating follows very similar eating guidelines. Lots of fruit and vegetables, brown rice, whole grains and smaller portions of chicken and meat. This has many health benefits to humans and to the environment. The livestock business is a large stressor on Earths increasingly scarce water resources, contributing, among other things, to water pollution, excess nutrients in bodies of water stimulating excessive algae growth, oxygen depletion and subsequent death of other organisms such as fish, and the degradation of coral reefs. The major polluting agents are animal wastes, antibiotics and hormones, fertilizers and the pesticides used to spray feed crops. I continue to grow vegetables using natural fertilizers, and supplement with local store supplies and an organic buying club. The elimination diet was tough but taught us some lessons and served as a reminder that our food choices can improve our health and that of the environment.

Well, the comparison might hold water. According to a study by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, published in the journal Current Biology, when people talk to their dogs, the reaction of the pup is similar to that of a baby. Jozsef Topal from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, said increasing evidence shows that humans and dogs share social skills and that the cognitive function of dogs resembles babies ranging from 6 months to 2 years old. The researcher also said that dogs appear to react to eye contact as do babies. During the study, researchers presented dogs with video recordings of a person turning toward one of two identical plastic pots while an eye tracker captured information on the dogsreactions. In one instance, the person looked directly at the dog, addressing it in a highpitched voice, saying Hi dog! Next, someone, speaking low and avoiding eye contact, said, Hi dog. The upshot? Dogs were more inclined to follow the person and look at the pot when the person was more engaging. Our findings reveal that dogs are receptive to human communication in a manner that was previously attributed only to human infants, Topal said. This probably makes a lot of sense to anyone with a dog.When prompted, they react like childrenMcClatchy-TribuneOUR PETSPhoto courtesy MIAMI HERALDThis dog seems to be saying,You lookinat me?

The groupsCanadianborn founder is famous for many things, among which is popularizing the singing of Auld Lang Syne at New Yearscelebrations. Led by Al Pierson since 1989, the Lombardo Orchestra will perform two concerts in the Keys, both at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Jan.16, it plays at San Pablo Catholic Church, 550 122nd St., ocean. And on Tuesday, Jan. 17, itll be performing at the Island Community Church, mile marker 83.5 in Islamorada. The church, which started out as a movie theater in the 1950s, has stadium seating and an intimate sound because every seat is closer to the stage, notes Joyce Peekman, a member of the Upper Keys Concert Series group who has now joined the board of the Florida Keys Concert Association.

Ocean Sothebys International Realty is hosting the cocktail party as part of their sponsorship for the Art Expo. That launches two days of art and artists for an outdoor show that represents more than 60 artists hailing from 16 states. Expo hours run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 21, and Sunday, Jan. 22. The district is located on the old highway between mile markers 81 and 82 (roughly Kaiyos restaurant on the north end and the Green Turtle on the south end). Works in mixed media, ceramics, blown and fused glass, sculpture, woodworking, wearable art as well as paintings in various media will be on display and for sale. Dick Hagood, executive director of the Morada Way Arts and Cultural District, said organizers are hoping to put Islamorada on the map with this first expo and build on that in subsequent years. The juried show includes a wide variety of disciplines, including what organizers are calling performance art. Annie Hickmans Rainforest Creatures will be strolling the grounds, their colorful costumes and studied movements sure to delight kids and adults alike, according to Hagood. The Kona Kai Resort is sponsoring the Rainforest Creatures troupe. And Pastas Pantaleo Gallery is hosting New Orleans jazz performances during the two-day expo.

She labels her work Sleepy Little Dreams, evoking feelings and memories still lingering from childhood. Her mixed-media work will be on display Jan. 2122 at the very first Islamorada Fine Arts Expo, along with works from nearly 70 other artists drawn from all over the country.Dick Hagood, executive director of the Morada Way Arts and Cultural District, bustles with energy and enthusiasm as he describes the manic push to make this first-ever village art expo a success.Of course, the track record for the art districts hardy band of volunteers is pretty impressive.Starting early in 2011, the group of art gallery owners, restaurateurs and business owners began hosting a monthly art walk under the banner of Third Thursdays.It grew each month during the busy winter season and some feared things would stop when snowbirds headed north. But, instead, Third Thursdays continued to find new audiences and new ways to attract and keep folks coming back for more, Hagood said. And, then we had the Clyde Butcher exhibit and we must have attracted more than 1,500 people, adds Daniela Woody, director of events for the district. The Moorings donated space in a warehouse on Morada Way. Hagood, his son and other district volunteers quickly transformed the interior into a large gallery space, complete with track lighting, muted gray walls and black ceilings. Aharpist played in onecorner while hundreds of art patrons, friends and the curious came to see Butchers iconic black and white photos of the Everglades, Florida shorelines and rare and endangered plants.Pieces from that show are now on display at The Gallery at Ocean Sothebys International Realty, 81888 Overseas Hwy., which is hosting a grand opening of the Butcher exhibit from 4-7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 19. It illustrates the ripple effect the art district has had on neighboring businesses, Hagood says.His wifes Gallery Morada has tracked a 30 percent increase in business since the Third Thursday events began early last year. The Redbone Gallery, next door to the impromptu gallery space donated by The Moorings is thrilled. And I know the restaurant members have been very happy with the increase, Woody said, noting the Green Turtle added a Thursday Night Jam to coincide with the initial Third Thursday events. Now that jam session has become every Thursday night. Pasta Pantaleo Signature Gallery, Gallery Morada and The Redbone Gallery are among the initial group to help jump-start the district, which has now grown to include 13 businesses clustered along the Old Highway in Islamorada from mile marker 81 to 82. Participating members display the distinctive Morada Way Arts and Cultural District signs. And sponsor businesses have been signing up, Hagood said, because they see the value the district is bringing to Islamoradas business community. Businesses are in a survival mode, Hagood says. We need to help them and they help us. The veteran fishing guide, who donates his services as the districts executive director, talks about the lessons hes learned in the guide business.When I started, there were about 50 guides and everyone was protecting their turf. The theory was we all shared the same pie, so each [new guide coming] would get a smaller slice. But thats not what happened. Each guide built their own business and repeat customers. More people came to Islamorada to fish and nobodys business decreased.Sometimes the pieces put together make a bigger pie.Expo,galleries, restaurants all measure gainsBy WAYNE MARKHAMwmarkham@keynoter.comMORADA WAY TOTALNUDITY...

Saturday,January 14,2012 7B Keynoter KeysNet.com Pierres and the Morada Bay Caf. Because the Old Highway will be closed for the event, restaurants are planning to serve both outdoors and inside their establishments. As Hagood points out, this will be one of the few Keys art shows where patrons can dine in a restaurant in the middle of the show. Booths will be lined up along the Old Highway and on Morada Way, which will have a stage set up for live music and other performances. Admission to the show is $5 per adult; no charge for children 12 and under or seniors 65 and older, active military personnel and disable persons with wheelchairs. Theres also free admission for bicyclists, who will enjoy valet parking and free entry for the expo. This also marks the start of a major push to encourage bikes in the art district, Hagood said. Colorful bike racks have already started appearing outside galleries and some businesses in the district. And the district has joined forces with the Islamorada Foundation for Pedaling Art, a fundraiser that duplicates a similar program run last year by The Studios of Key West. Business sponsors pay for a bike thats then decorated by a Keys artist before being raffled off to raise funds for district programs. The first of these art-designed bikes will make their appearance at the Jan. 19 Third Thursday Walkabout, which will kickoff the Islamorada Fine Art Expo weekend. Patron tickets for the Jan. 20 cocktail party at Ocean Sothebys cost $50. To purchase, call 664-9100 or e-mail: moradawa email@example.com. On Saturday, Jan. 21, Islamorada historian Irving R.

Back then, several shotgun houses for local cigar factory workers stood in the vicinity before a fire in 1923 demolished most of them. The freshly completed renovation of this extraordinary Key West residence makes for open and airy luxury living on a small scale.506 & 504 Catherine St.Over the years, a shotgun house built here in the 1880s had been altered so many times; its only a guess what was there 100 years ago. Stucco walls and Cuban tile floors date from c. 1960. Its latest incarnation, as a charming pastel bungalow with a pool and separate guest quarters in prime in-town location, is the result of an extensive renovation and expansion completed last year.

WWW.KEYSNET.COM SATURDAY,JANUARY 14,2012 SECTION C Saturday, January 14, 2012 Bayview Park, Key WestOFFICIAL PROGRAMKeys fishermen testing new greentrap designsThe Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association hopes to have results soon from an extensive study that could introduce a new lobster trap design in Keys waters. Early tests show the traps could reduce weight and significantly reduce trap movement that threatens damage to sea bottoms during heavy storms. Bill Kelly, executive director of the organization, said five different designs were built and tested over two different trap lines. The one trap that seemed most effective, a wood plus wire combination, reduced weight by 20 percent and reduced movement by 80 percent, he said. Thats a substantial finding, especially when you think about 485,000 traps out there and the interconnected impact with coral and seagrass. The testing also gathered data on catchability, he said, which will be critical for commercial fishermen in deciding on any major change in trap design.We need to see how the numbers stack up compared to all-wood traps in the same area, he said. We had the traps pulled at the same time, same frequency intervals and the results of that study were being wrapped up last week, so we should have results sometime soon.The Florida Keys lobster fishery is the last commercial fishery in the U.S. stillPartnering on protection zones with SanctuaryBy WAYNE MARKHAMwmarkham@keynoter.com KELLY Commercial fishermen (above) harvesting a catch dockside.Stone crab claws (left) are a sustainable harvest seafood species.Vendors offer diverse mixIn addition to good eats,visitors will find lots of gift items for sale at the seventh annual Key West Seafood Festival in Bayview Park. Vendors cover the gamut,from jewelry to stainglass,marine supplies to wood crafts,candles and clothing. Craftsmen and artists are coming from several states to showcase their handiwork,according to organizers,along with Keys-based businesses. Feeding the brain will also be an option as several organizations and agencies staff information booths during the fest,which runs from 11 a.m.to 8 p.m.Saturday,Jan.14. Mote Marine Lab will have aquariums on display, giving fairgoers an up-close look at the underwater treasures just offshore. A lionfish may draw the most attention,given that speciesspectacular fin displays.But remember: These are an invasive species and festival goers will get plenty of warnings about avoiding those pretty, colorful fins that disguise poisonous spines used for defense. The National Marine Sanctuary will also have an exhibit along with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration,Reef Relief,the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Florida Keys Mosquito Control District. For a complete list of vendors and a map of where to find them at Bayview Park,see page 4C. See Lobster,2CRecycling on display at this seafood festivalThe seventh annual Florida Keys Seafood Festival hosted by the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association at Bayview Park in Key West is sure to be a crowd pleaser. The purpose of the festival is to celebrate and experience Florida Keys seafood through entertainment, education and good eats. Attendance exceeds 8,000, and its possibly the greenest festival in the Florida Keys. In 2009, festival organizers got serious about recycling. They partnered with Monroe County to conduct a waste audit that helped them characterize the events main waste items as plastic, food scraps, cardboard, aluminum and food-soiled paper. Then they went to work. Organizers, without much disruption, made the following changes:Started planning early so environmental considerations can be addressed.Minimized waste from the start by conducting event planning via e-mail instead of driving, avoiding unnecessary printing of agendas, contracts, etc.Educated and continue to educated present and future volunteers and Key West park staff about the importance of recycling, what materials will be recycled and proper recycling procedures.Encouraged vendors to purchase supplies, bags and other premiums made-fromrecycled materials.Enlisted a composting partner to help gather the food scraps for composting.Paired trash bins with clearly labeled recycling bins so the recycling becomes convenient for those attending.Identified reuse opportunities, such as donating leftover food to a homeless shelter or reusing material and supplies at future events. All of the oil used for fryers at this years event will be processed into diesel fuel by Marathon Bio Diesel, a sponsor of the festival.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 2C Saturday,January 14,2012using a wood trap design, Kelly said. In other parts of the country where lobster traps are used, the fisheries have moved to plastic-coated wire traps, he said. But those types have one disadvantage once lost at sea, they can survive for many years and cause damage to seagrass beds or even coral colonies. Wood traps, by contrast, deteriorate much faster. Finding ways to reduce adverse impact on the undersea environment is part and parcel of the trade groups mission, Kelly said. He notes the association has worked closely with the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, Nature Conservancy, the Coral Restoration Foundation and others to identify protected sites for preservation of elkhorn and staghorn coral. Both acropora species of coral are on the Endangered Species List. Both are suffering from climate change a warming of tropical and subtropical waters and acidification along with damage from tropical storms that move lobster trap lines into areas with coral bottoms. The new trap design could significantly reduce the potential damage from such storms, Kelly said. We do not place traps on corals by state law and federal law, he added, but fishermen agreed to the need for establishing borders that provide a greater degree of protection. While working with the sanctuary and other agencies, the proposed protected areas grew from 52 to 56 and now include coral nurseries near Alligator Light off Islamorada that were established by Coral Restoration Foundations Ken Nedimyer. Nedimyers program was recognized in 2009 by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which received more than 800 proposals for habitat restoration projects funded by federal stimulus dollars. Only 50 programs were funded, including $3.3 million awarded for coral restoration in the Keys and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The Nature Conservancy is administering the grant. James Bryne, the Conservancys marine-science program manager for Florida and the Caribbean, said to conduct restoration of coral on this scale is unprecedented. Nedimyer pioneered efforts to grow staghorn coral at his Atlantic Ocean site off the Upper Keys. His first successful transplant took place in 2003 when staghorn corals were moved from his site to the Wellwood grounding site near Molasses Reef off Key Largo. Kelly said as a result of the cooperative effort undertaken with support from the Commercial Fishermens Association, Nedimyers nurseries now have more than 15,000 coral colonies growing for future transplant restoration projects. We wanted to be proactive about it and offer protection in additional areas, Kelly said.Agreater degree of protectionFrom Lobster,1C plates and cups. Festival organizers have learned a great deal in the past three years. This year, the city of Key West and Monroe County have intensified their commitment and efforts to recycle and so have festival organizers, who are making every effort to surpass last years 1,850 pounds, which included mixed glass, cans, plastic and cardboard. The road to becoming a better recycler is paved with the small decisions made every day. Its about the choices we make when shopping, at a festival or spending time with friends and family. Monroe County Solid Waste/Recycling will have a public information booth at the festival to encourage recycling and provide information to people who want to learn more about recycling.For more information about recycling, call 2924432, or send an e-mail to Washingtonemail@example.com.Recycling goal expandsFrom Fest,1CPheromones latest lurein lionfish battleIn the ongoing war to combat the spread of invasive lionfish in Keys waters, commercial lobstermen are participating in research collection efforts. Ten fishermen are gathering data from lionfish they capture in lobster traps and sharing that information with www.reef.org .This distribution analysis of where lionfish are found and population densities can be helped by logging the lionfish in our traps, Bill Kelly said. Kelly, executive director of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association, said his members are also experimenting with various ways to trap lionfish.Wooden lobster trap designs dont lend themselves to effective capture of lionfish, he explained, since the fish are generally small enough to escape on their own. However, doing some tests with modified trap designs and using pheromones as bait or live lionfish to attract others is now underway. Lionfish are prolific breeders, Kelly said, with a female lionfish producing upwards of 20,000 eggs every five days during their spawning cycle. The commercial fishermen participating in the experiments are testing to see if a live male fish or live female fish attract the companion fish. The pheromones substitute for a live fish.Commercial fishermen are concerned about the proliferation of lionfish in Keys waters because research has shown the voracious eaters can devastate juvenile snapper and grouper stocks, as well as feeding on larval lobster.Were continuing to work with the Florida Wildlife Research Institute and www.reef.org to combat one of the most invasive species weve seen introduced in decades, Kelly said.He notes that rapid proliferation of lionfish in the Bahamas has already adversely impacted the commercial fishing industry there. The Key Largo-based Reef Environmental Education Center sponsors lionfish derbies throughout the Keys and has encouraged commercial and recreational fishermen to turn in lionfish at collection centers so more data can be gathered on range and dispersal of this invasive fish species. Following are collection centers:Key Largo: REEF headquarters, Silent World Dive Center, Quiescence, Sea Dwellers, Horizon Divers.Tavernier: Conch Republic Divers, Florida Keys Dive Center, Coral Shores High School.Marathon: Tildens Dive Center.Lower Keys: Looe Key Dive Center, Mote Marine Lab.Key West: Dive Key West, Eco-Discovery Center.

Scholarships spell difference for Florida Keys studentsJessica Sentz is starting her second semester at Florida Keys Community College. Without a scholarship awarded by the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association, Sentz says its unlikely shed be enrolled today. Just the books alone for my first semester cost $700, she said, adding that she works while going to classes at the FKCC Coral Shores campus, plus takes courses online.Sentz is among Keys graduates who won scholarships from the fishermens association last year. Her father, Jess, is a commercial fishermen following in the footsteps of his father, who also made his living from the sea.Shayna Halladays father Doc is the second generation in the family to make a living from the sea. Halladay remembers helping her father gauge lobster on his boat and even helping every August when traps first go into the water. This is the first August I wasnt there to help out, she said, adding that she now lives upstate and is planning to enroll in college classes starting in May. Justin Niles Martin, 18, has been working with his uncle and grandfather in commercial fishing since he was about age 5. I helped scrape traps and cleaned up around the place. Then, as I got older, helped put out traps and did trap pulling, Martin said. Now hes taking courses in sports management at Flagler College and dreams of someday working for either a pro team, the college ranks or ESPN. I love being out on the water, mostly with my dad, when I lived in the Keys, Martin said. Now that hes in school in Flagler County, the Keys native misses the easy access to the water and fishing. And hell miss the annual Key West Seafood Festival, where hes helped out at each one since the first one seven years ago. His father works for the Monroe County Sheriffs Office and Martin says his career path now will likely take him into sports management. Ascholarship from the fishermens association funded through events like the Key West Seafood Festival helped Martin pay for books and afford a laptop for classes. Working in the commercial fishing industry alongside his uncle and grandfather, he said, taught him a lifelong lesson: Work a little bit at a time scraping traps teaches you to keep pushing until finally its done.Festivals help raise funds for Keys scholarsKeynoter Staff SEAFOOD FESTIVAL Festival goers in 2011 enjoyed great weather and plenty of good food.Coral transplant work expandsThe Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association (FKCFA) is contributing expertise and money to the Coral Restoration Foundation (CRF), a 501 c (3) non-profit conservation organization dedicated to restoring coral reefs. CRF is the continuation of a successful staghorn coral nursery and transplantation program initiated by Ken Nedimyer in the Florida Keys. Its an outgrowth of the former Keys Marine Conservancy. The restoration foundations primary projects include:Development and enhancement of Elkhorn and Staghorn coral nurseries (Acropora palmata and A. cervicornis, both of which are federally listed as Threatened Species)Restoration of damaged reef areas by transplanting nursery reared coralsRestoration of degraded coral reef sites by transplantation of nursery reared coralsTransplantation of longspined sea-urchins (Diadema antillarum) to enhance coral health and success of coral transplantationEducation programs for students and the general public on coral health, nursery and transplantation issuesHands on opportunities for divers and students to engage in coral restoration activitiesSharing of knowledge and techniques with other agencies and organizations in efforts to successfully build partnership projectsIt its very important that FKCFAdecided to sign on as a supporter of CRFs work; it shows the public that the commercial fishing industry wants to be part of the solution, Nedimyer said. Jeff Cramer, a commercial stone crab and lobster fisherman said he has concerns about the wide variety of reef-users and their cumulative impact on reef ecosystems. All natural resources are impacted by a variety of different industries. The impact commercial fishing has on coral reef ecosystems is minimal in comparison to the effects of nutrient rich stormwater run-off and sewage outfalls. Everyone that interacts with the reef has to address their impact. Doug Gregory, a Sea Grant agent from the University of Florida: It is important for the commercial fishing industry to commit to finding sustainable solutions by addressing their share of impacts. Some of the problems facing coral reefs include:Warming seas and coral bleachingRapidly rising seasOcean acidificationMore powerful, more frequent stormsCoral diseasesWater pollutionCoastal developmentBoat groundingsAnchor damageDiver and swimmer impacts The commercial fishing industry in the Florida Keys is actively addressing its impact on coral reef ecosystems by addressing overfishing and gear impacts, Bill Kelly, executive director of the commercial fishing association, said. Some of the solutions include, promoting Best Fishing Practices, researching potential area closures to preserve habitats of particular concern and alternative gear types. The FKCFA/CRF partnership is an opportunity that will bring a greater awareness to the importance of essential fish habitat and the coral reef ecosystem, sponsors said.

We told fishermen that we would not force [catch shares] on them if they didnt want it, said Sebastian resident George Geiger, a Florida appointee to the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council. At a Feb. 3, 2011 federal workshop in Key Largo, dozens of fishermen spoke out against catch shares for grouper, snapper and lobster. On Mar. 12, the full South Atlantic Council unanimously accepted a recommendation from its SnapperGrouper Committee to terminate all work relating to development of catch shares in Amendment 21 to the agencys rules on snapper and grouper. Under a catch-share program, scientists would determine the number of fish that could be removed annually from a specific fishery while keeping it sustainable. Fishermen or firms that have a history of catches within the fishery then would be allocated a specified percentage of the annual harvest. Geiger, generally viewed as one of the most pro-conservation members of the South Atlantic Council, made the motion to scrap catch shares for snapper and grouper. The thing that hit home for me was the council went on record four years ago saying we would not force any type of catch-share program on the fishermen unless they wanted it, Geiger said. That mantra was reiterated at least three times over the following years. The Environmental Defense Fund strongly worked to pass catch shares. Its staff said a guaranteed catch quota would let fishermen better manage their businesses and reduce the derby race to catch fish before a fishery closes. Top officials of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have endorsed the catchshare concept but defer to federal fishery councils to establish regulations. Catch shares is a policy NOAAset forth to consider, Geiger said. There is no requirement for us to do it. This is an enormously important, precedent-setting decision, said Bill Kelly, executive director of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association. The council said catch shares do not work well in all geographic areas or in all fisheries. In Fridays vote, the South Atlantic Council agreed to proceed with developing catch shares for the wreckfish and golden crab fisheries both relatively small fisheries where commercial fishermen mostly support the concept. Golden crabs are caught in South Florida and the Keys, but wreckfish generally are found off North Carolina. We dont need to expand the golden crab fishery because it takes place around deepwater coral that we need to protect, Geiger said. Kelly said catch shares in New England and in the Gulf of Mexico have concentrated the ability to fish certain species in the hands of a few large corporations. It becomes a sharecropper approach, said Kelly. Fishermen have to lease the right to fish. The South Atlantic Councils decision on snapper and grouper does not necessarily extend to other fisheries within its jurisdiction that covers from the Keys to North Carolina. However, it may. To me, this is a decision that would be applicable to all the fisheries within our purview, Swatzel said. We heard from the snappergrouper fishermen, and weve heard from the king mackerel fishermen. Catch shares have been proposed for king mackerel, Geiger said, but I cant imagine the council opening that can of worms.South Atlantic Council votes against programBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgUnder a catch-share program, scientists would determine the number of fish that could be removed annually from a specific fishery while keeping it sustainable.
