According to sources following the Cuban governments offshore energy plans, the officials plan to exchange information on their respective governmentsdrilling regulations, discuss gaps between the countriespolicies, and talk about contingency plans to clean up potential oil spills that could impact the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean. The meeting is significant since it involves officials from both Cuba and the United States nations whose relationship remains strained by Cold War-era differences. The lasting monument to these conflicts is the 52-year-old trade embargo imposed by the U.S. against Cuba. The embargo would prohibit American companies skilled in oil cleanup from providing immediate aid if a disaster happens. Relaxing the policy is not expected to be discussed at the Curacao meeting, according to Lee Hunt, president of the International Association of Drilling Contractors. Special U.S. government licenses are available to American companies permitting them to do business with the rigs operators, but they come with limitations. For example, one company has a license to provide capping stacks to the rig, which are used to plug holes in the ocean floor to stop leaks. But the company, which Hunt would not name, is not allowed to provide needed auxiliary equipment.Another company has been licensed to provide emergency response planning but is prohibited from communicating with the Cuban government, Hunt said.Overall, five nations gather this weekend to talk spill contingenciesBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comOIL DRILLING Decision day forKeys voters is TuesdayRegistered voters throughout Monroe County have decisions to make on Tuesday, Election Day, even if theyre not voting in the GOPpresidential primary.The School District, Islamorada and Marathon all have referendum questions on the ballot. In fact, there are six different ballots Keyswide: Nonpartisan county, Republican county, nonpartisan Marathon, Republican Marathon, nonpartisan Islamorada and Republican Islamorada. The referendum all 50,951 registered voters can weigh in on asks whether the School District should be able to shift a half-mill (50 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value) tax to the operating budget from the capital outlay. The actual question is: The district intends to continue its reduced millage for capital projects and continue to make available the equivalent amount for operations. Shall the district continue to enact a yearly ad valorem tax of .5 mill for four years beginning July 1, 2012, for operating purposes?In 2008, 76 percent of voters OKd the same referendum.District officials say that if voters dont vote yes again, next fiscal year could see far more cuts in spending than has happened in years past cuts that kill everything from sports programs to music instruction.If it does pass, the first year would see a transfer of about $9.8 million. If not, the district budget could be looking at a deficit of at least $14 million for the fiscal year starting July 1. Thats because district officials already plan to reduce expenditures from $4 million to $6 million down from the current budget of $82.3 million.In Islamorada, voters will decide if candidates for Village Council can be elected by simply receiving the most votes. As is, candidates must win at least 50 percent of the vote to win a seat on the fivemember board. If no candidate passes the threshold, runoff elections must be held among the highest vote-getters.

Colleen OMalley, 56, is accused of giving Raymond Moffitan, 64, two patches of Fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opiate that is often used to relieve pain. They ended up killing him; a grand jury indicted OMalley last week. OMalley, from Lindenhurst, N.Y., was staying with Moffitan and his wife, Dana, 54, on Johnson Street. According to police reports, the three were watching television the night before Raymond Moffitan was found dead. OMalley admitted, the reports say, that she asked the Moffitans if they wanted to use Fentanyl patches even though they had no medical need for them. OMalley reportedly had a prescription for them due to pain from a car wreck. OMalley and Dana Moffitan told police they agreed to OMalleys offer of the patches and that OMalley put the patches near their shoulder blades.

In a Jan. 13 order, the Third District Court of Appeal in Miami upheld a pair of earlier Monroe County rulings questioning the validity of results from the Intoxilyzer 8000 breathtest machine. For all practical purposes, its shut down breath testing in the Keys for two years, and its our position it still is, Marathon defense attorney Hal Schuhmacher told the Keynoter. Hes tried the case along with Coconut Grove-based attorneys Richard Hersch and LaSonya Lacey. The case grew out of an appeal from Robert Yount, arrested for DUI on Roosevelt Boulevard in Key West in 2006. Schuhmacher was clear the DCAs order does not involve throwing out DUI [cases] at all. What it does is it now allows all county court DUI defendants to benefit from that order. They can use it to exclude the breath-test results from the trials of their case, he said. But Assistant State Attorney Paunece Ramage says breath-test results can still be introduced its just harder to do. Weve never been prohibited from introducing breath-results in DUI cases. Its obviously more work, she said, noting the county must have a Florida Department of Law Enforcement analyst testify to the devices accuracy. Ramage said the state can still argue a defendant blew over the legal limit. This is not a victory for the defense. Because of [Circuit Court Judge Peary] Fowlers ruling, we dont get a presumed impairedruling. We can still make the argument to the jury, she said. In 2009, Fowler ruled that results from the machine used by the Monroe County Sheriffs Office were open to question because the software, known as source code, was unavailable for examination by independent electrical and computer engineers. In addition, Fowler pointed to FDLE inspector Sandra Viega falsifying results for the Intoxilyzer 8000. She was fired in 2008 for reportedly telling Miami and Miami Beach police officers how this was done. Circuit Court Judge David Audlin reversed Fowlers software ruling in September 2010 the maker and state are still debating ownership but upheld her concerns with Viega. State prosecutors contended that most test results should be allowed under the substantial compliance rule rather than the strict compliance standard. Audlin rejected the states argument.Software isnt up for review by attorneysBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comIN THE COURTS This is the machine in question.Attorneys say despite the latest ruling, dont expect a ton of appeals of DUI convictions to be filed.Man kills self when cops close inKey West police closed off the 1200 block of Duval Street on Saturday during a dramatic armed standoff that ended with 23-year-old Robert Maconi taking his life.Initial reports came in just after 2 a.m. that Maconi was outside 1211 Duval St. shooting an unknown weapon multiple times and making [non]specific threats.Bystanders directed responding police down an alley and up a staircase, where they spotted Maconi, who identified himself, standing on a balcony.Officer Henry Arroyo reports that Maconi wouldnt stand still and put up his hands; Arroyo lost sight of Maconi then heard a gun shot and saw a flash of light....Sgt. Joseph Tripp also heard the shot and from beneath the porch saw blood dripping down, forming a puddle.When they entered the apartment, police encountered the resident, Peter Wagner. He told police that earlier in the night Maconi was drinking alcohol and seemed very depressed.... Maconi collected guns and would sometimes clean his guns at Wagners apartment.Police found Maconis body on the porch with a semi-automatic pistol in his hand, with another loaded pistol on a nearby table; there was also a pistol-grip AK47 assault rifle and a tactical shotgun.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST harm the victim, a police report says.Dana Moffitan told police she took her patch off around 4 or 5 a.m. because she couldnt sleep and it irritated her.

Saturday,January 28,2012 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com Response limitsBased on the assets deployed to staunch the DeepWater Horizon/British Petroleum spill in the Gulf of Mexico in the spring and summer of 2010, Hunt said just a fraction of the needed equipment is licensed to immediately respond to an accident from the rig because of U.S. Cuban policy. Based on the total amount of equipment, vessels and services required for [the DeepWater Horizon spill], a reasonable estimate is less than 5 percent of these resources have been licensed to respond in Cuban seas, Hunt said. The rig, called the Scarabeo 9, arrived in the Florida Straits last week after traveling for months from Asia. It is owned by the Italian company Eni S.p.A. and was built in China. Spanish energy company Repsol will be the first of several international companies to drill for oil on leases owned by Cuba.Repsol will drill about 70 miles from Key West, according to Jorge Pinon, visiting research fellow at the Cuban Research Institute at Florida International University. Drilling will be about 6,500 feet below the ocean surface. The DeepWater Horizon disaster happened at 5,500 feet down. The Cuban government estimates up to 20 billion barrels of oil are located in the drilling area. The U.S. Geological Survey puts the number at a much more cautious 5 billion barrels. Nevertheless, a significant find on Cubas side of the Florida Straits could make the Communist island nation a major energy player in the Western Hemisphere.Delayed reactionDaniel Whittle, Cuban program director with the Environmental Defense Fund, has been critical of the United States government for not reaching out more to the Cubans, even though news of the Scarabeo 9s impending arrival had been known for more than a year. He called the Curacao meeting a positive step in the right direction, but said the United States is now reacting to a situation that should not have come as a surprise. All of this should have been done before today. The rig is there now, he said in an interview this week. Whittle said the U.S. delegation at the Curacao meeting will be led by the State Department, and will also include representatives from the U.S. Coast Guard, Department of Interior, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and maybe the Environmental Protection Agency. The rigs arrival, as well as similar drilling plans by the Bahamas expected later this year, also prompted the U.S. House of Representativescommittee on Transportation and Infrastructure to schedule a hearing for this Monday in Sunny Isles Beach. Witnesses from the Coast Guard, NOAA, Interior and Florida International University are scheduled to speak at the hearing, which begins at 10 a.m. in the Atlantic Room of the DoubleTree Hotel, beginning at 10:30 a.m.EDF: Why did we wait?From Oil,1A that runoffs cost the village about $18,500. This year is the first that Village Council elections are held on the general election date of the first Tuesday of November. Council elections had been held in March. If Mondays referendum fails, runoff elections will be held on Dec. 4. Polling places for Tuesdays referendum are the Islamorada library at mile marker 81.8; the Plantation Key Courthouse at mile marker 88; and Immanuel Lutheran Church at 108 Ocean Drive at mile marker 90.2.In Marathon, voters will be asked two questions gauging residentssupport of commercial air service to Florida Keys Marathon Airport.The nonbinding measures ask voters whether the County Commission should actively pursue commercial airline service to the airport from a mainland airport, and whether theyd support a special taxing district to help pay for it. Councilman Pete Worthington has pushed for the referendum since June, saying residents need to send a message that commercial service is essential at the countyowned airfield. The Keys have failed to support commercial service in Marathon several times in recent years. Delta left after five months of flying to and from Atlanta in 2007, and Cape Air operated a Continental Connection to Fort Myers for one tourist season, in 2009. It didnt return after the county and city refused to provide a $160,000 subsidy. Marathon Finance Director Peter Rosasco said in October that roughly $172,000 could be raised annually if landowners were taxed at 10 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value. Thats based on the citys overall $1.832 billion assessed value in 2011 and equates to $30 for the owner of a $300,000 house. The city has five polling locations: American Legion at 4115 Overseas Highway; First Baptist Church at 200 62nd St. oceanside; Presbyterian Kirk of the Keys at 8877 Overseas Highway; Marathon Moose Lodge at 11601 1st Ave.; Marathon Moose Lodge at 11601 1st Ave. Gulf. For all Keys voters, polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. David Goodhue, Sean Kinney and Ryan McCarthy compiled this report.Voters finally get their sayFrom Election,1A Five years later, shooting case endsThe final charge against a man who shot an attacker in self-defense five years ago in Key Largo was dismissed Thursday. Jorge Correa, 44, walked away from the Plantation Key Courthouse a free man after Monroe County Circuit Judge Luis Garcia granted a direct acquittal. Were relieved that after five years, we finally have our lives back, said Dora Sanchez, Correas wife. Counts of attempted murder and discharging a firearm that were filed after the 2007 incident at the Key Largo Ocean Resort, a gated RVpark near mile marker 95, were dropped in April 2011 under Floridas so-called Stand Your Ground law that allows self-defense. Monroe County State Attorneys Office prosecutors and Garcia agreed at a subsequent August hearing that Correa must face the one remaining count of carrying a concealed weapon without a permit. Asix-member jury was seated Monday for the Thursday trial on that count. After the state made its case, defense attorneys William Matthewmen and Richard Hersch argued the prosecutions case lacked enough evidence to proceed. Judge Garcia agreed that the case was too weak to go to a jury, Matthewman said. We felt from the very beginning that Mr. Correa had every right to defend himself, Matthewman said. We believed he was not guilty but you never know whats going to happen, so were very pleased with the result. Correa, a Hialeah resident, told Monroe County Sheriffs Office investigators that in the 2007 incident, he was attacked and beaten by a fellow weekend resident who was nursing a grudge. Luis Figueroa was shot three times with a .32-caliber pistol but survived. Figueroa later admitted in court that he provoked the fight but said he was alone. Correa and witnesses said two other men also were involved. It was a difficult case because the alleged victim was shot three times, Matthewman said. After the most serious charges were dropped on self-defense grounds, Thursdays trial centered on whether Correa was carrying a gun that was unlawfully concealed. Since the handgun was tucked into Correas waistband, it was readily observable, Matthewman said. He was beaten and suffered significant injuries, Matthewman said. He clearly acted in selfdefense. This very dark cloud over Mr. Correa and his family has finally been lifted and he has been fully exonerated, Matthewman said. Correa, who described himself as a former security guard in his native Cuba, acknowledged he did not have a concealed-weapon permit in 2007. Still, he and his wife said they do not regret his decision to bring the pistol that night. Thank God he had that gun, Sanchez said.Correa walks away after final count droppedIN THE COURTSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org
KeysNet.com Keynoter 4A Saturday,January 28,2012 Public defender files foranotherrunMonroe Countys public defender says she loves her job too much too walk away.Rosemary Enright, who has headed the Public Defenders Office of the state 16th Judicial Circuit since 1996, filed papers Jan. 6 to run for her fifth four-year term.Its an honor to have this job and I feel very lucky to have it, the Democrat said Friday. Being a public defender is all Ive wanted to do since I finished law school.No one else has filed campaign papers with the Florida Division of Elections to seek the post, which pays a salary of $150,076 annually. Candidates have until April 20 to qualify. In 2008, Enright was returned to office when no one ran against her.She joined the Public Defenders Office in 1988 after finishing law school at the University of Miami. She started as a misdemeanor prosecutor in Marathon before being promoted to a felony prosecutor in Key West.After Public Defender Rand Winter did not seek reelection in 1996, Enright won her first term with 67 percent of the vote. The public defender now oversees a staff of 18 attorneys who represent people who cannot afford private attorneys in criminal matters.My goal has always been to represent our clients as best we can in a fiscally responsible manner, Enright said. I think weve done a good job.The agency has a budget of approximately $2.5 million after cuts by the Florida Legislature in recent years. Its been hard for all state agencies dealing with the budget cuts, Enright said.We have to take whatever cases we get, whatever the caseload, she said. That can be difficult since the budget is limited. But we have a great staff of attorneys who do an excellent job. Everybody here is dedicated to representing our clients. You have to be dedicated to do this job.ANew Jersey native who still roots for the New York Yankees, Enright moved to the Keys in 1980. Its a fun place to live, she said. Enright declined to give her age. Thats not something I talk about, she said.Meanwhile, Dennis ward, finishing his first term as Monroe County state attorney, filed re-election papers in September. He has drawn a challenger, Catherine Vogel, formerly a chief assistant prosecutor under former State Attorney Mark Kohl. Ward and Vogel are Democrats.Kohl, a Republican, is widely believed to be considering a run for his old job. Asked this week if he has made a decision, he replied, Not yet. He declined further comment.David Audlin Jr., an incumbent circuit-court judge, filed papers Jan. 7 as a candidate for re-election. No challengers have filed papers as of this week. County Judge Wayne Miller also has filed for reelection.Enright has been in office since 1996ELECTION 2012By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comSheriffs Office finance chief considers run for county clerkMonroe County Clerk of the Court employee Kevin Madok could have some competition this November in the race to replace one of the Keys longest-tenured and most respected government officials. Amy Heavilin, Finance Division director for the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, told the Keynoter shes considering a run at seven-term incumbent Clerk Danny Kolhages open seat. Im certainly exploring the option; no decision has been made. Im consulting with my family and friends, she said. Kolhage, a Democrat, has been clerk since 1983, when then-Gov. Bob Graham appointed him to replace Ralph White. He plans to retire when his term is up in January 2013, and this month filed to run this year for Kim Wigingtons District 1 County Commission seat. The Clerks Offices main duties are as the official keeper of county government records and overseeing government contracts. Kolhage was known for his tenacity in not approving questionable expenditures. Madok, a Republican, filed to run for clerk on Nov. 18, just days after Kolhage announced he wouldnt seek re-election to an eighth fouryear term. Madok, the assistant finance director, has been with the Clerks Office for seven years. He was a Layton City Council member from 2002 to 2006, but lives on Big Pine Key now. Hes a California native and worked for years there in the private sector before moving to the Keys. One thing that kept me here this long is the fact were able to have a role in safekeeping the publics assets, he said. Thats one philosophy I hold; its the publics money, not the countys money per say. Madok says about half the clerks budget is consumed by court-related functions, while the other half is finance and internal audit duties for the County Commission. From the publics perspective, theyre more interested in what the clerks function is in acting as a check and balance to the commission, he said. Thats why Madok said hes not done much in the way of campaigning since filing to run. He said the public will essentially decide whos the best qualified for the job. I think its getting to be time to get out there, said. Its clearly not a policymaking position. You have a platform as a county commissioner [candidate], where the clerk is rules based and statutes based.

Keating: Give manager Hernstadt a raiseMarathon City Councilman Richard Keating says City Manager Roger Hernstadt should be compensated more based on his value to the city. Tuesday, Keating floated the idea of giving Hernstadt a raise a year and a half through a three-year contract given him in June 2010. He was hired in January 2010 to replace former manager Clyde Burnett. With the new deal, the longtime Miami-Dade County and city of Miami employee received a pay increase from $110,000 to $130,000 per year. The salary was expected to remain flat, though raises can be proposed at council membersdiscretion. Keating lauded Hernstadt for creating a positive work environment and saving the city money on contracts. Id like the council to consider a motion to compensate Roger for his abilities and efforts on behalf of the city, he said. The council agreed to let Keating propose the raise at its Feb. 14 meeting. He told the Keynoter he hasnt decided how much of an increase to suggest. Ill look at a few things and come up with a number and put it in front of the council. We cant pay Roger what I feel hes worth to the city. I just want it to be kind of competitive; we want to keep him here, Keating said. Councilwoman Ginger Snead supports Keatings measure. I think Rogers done an amazing job dealing with us and the residents of Marathon, she said. Id be more than happy to have that discussion at the next meeting. Councilmen Mike Cinque and Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay said they wouldnt consider a raise. Our economic situation is such that we have to be careful how we spend your money. If this does move forward to a conversation about compensation, I would totally believe wed never do that unless we go through a formal review period, Ramsay said. Cinque said he wouldnt consider a raise at least until the city begins crafting the next fiscal years budget this summer. We have a lot of people working here that havent had raises in a number of years. I think its [Keatings] pleasure to put what he likes on the agenda, but this is the wrong time to do it, he said. Hernstadt said he appreciates Keatings compliments. It was nice to be recognized for the two years and hear a couple of them think theyre getting a value for their money, he said.No increase is called for in contractBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Saturday,January 28,2012 5A Keynoter KeysNet.com Tell those you LOVE just how you feel with our V V A L E N T I N E L O V E L I N E S To be published Saturday,Feb.11 Order deadline is Tuesday,Feb.7 Cost is $17.50 per square To reserve your space: Call us at 743-5551 Or email to lpr est on@k e ynot er .c om J.C.

Board to create strategic planIn discussion about a long-term strategic plan for the Monroe County School District, four of five School Board members identified keeping a 5 percent fund balance as a top priority. Superintendent Jesus Jara is working with the board, its District Advisory Council and various school advisory councils to develop a set of guiding goals. Included in that process was a query of board memberstop five priorities, which he presented at a Tuesday meeting in Key West. The state Department of Education recommends a 3 percent budget reserve as compared to overall revenues. When a district falls below that threshold, the superintendent has to notify the commissioner of education. Below 2 percent, theres the possibility the state could empanel an oversight committee. Last month, the School Board approved a $1.2 million budget amendment tied to what administrators described as unexpected enrollment increases at Keys charter schools. That amendment dropped the districts reserves below 3 percent, which forced Jara to notify the state. The current ratio of district revenue to reserves is 2.71 percent, or $2,025,285. Board member Duncan Mathewson said developing a strategic plan is something maybe we should have done a long time ago. Chairman John Dick has repeatedly said he wont vote for a 2012-13 budget that does not include the 5 percent reserve; discussing the matter earlier in the month, the districts advisory Audit and Finance Committee recommended shooting for 6 percent, which would be more than $4 million. In tandem with the strategic plan discussion, board members agreed the process should be completed by the time the district gears up a search for the next superintendent. Jaras term is up in January 2013, and his replacement (although Jara has expressed interest in the job) would be the first superintendent in Monroe County hired by the board. In 2010, voters decided to do away with an elected model. Board Vice Chairman Andy Griffiths said the timing is appropriate in case each candidate has a different vision for the district than the board does. We need to have this done and in a package before we start interviewing, Board member Robin Smith-Martin added. Jara distilled the input of the board into a list of seven goals:Effective internal/ external communications (not controlling the message) to increase collaborations with parents, community members, businesses, organizations and institutions.Maintain a 5 percent fund balance.Make Monroe County schools in the top 5 percent based on state achievement standards.Make Monroe County the top academically ranked district in the state; its now tied for 8th with Brevard County.Ensure employees are dedicated to the districts mission of constant improvement.Continue to pay teachers the highest average salary in the state; the local average is $56,000 compared to the state average of $45,000.Implement an administrative performance management system aligned to strategic priorities.The top goal is increasing budget reserveBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSTrumbo sale could be hinderedAlthough Monroe County School District officials say the title to the districts Trumbo Road property in Key West is free and clear, Audit and Finance Committee Chairman Stuart Kessler says theres still a question that could derail a possible sale.Selling the prime waterfront land about five acres with six buildings on it with a combined assessed value of $9.1 million isnt now in the works. But long-term district plans have been to sell Trumbo and move district headquarters elsewhere, possibly spread throughout the Keys, possibly to space at Glynn Archer Elementary on White Street, also in Key West.Based on a title research conducted by district attorneys and reviewed by Kessler, the U.S. Navy conveyed the Old Town property to the School District in 1977 based on the promise they would use it for educational purposes for 30 years, Kessler said. Fast-forward to 1995, when the district gave about half an acre of the parcel to the city of Key West; the next year, the city gave the property back. It reset the 30-year clock as it pertains to that small portion of the larger piece of land, Kessler said, adding that at this point the information is half baked, and its not even clear where on the site the half acre is.This could be really important or could be completely meaningless, he said.Kessler said if its a parking lot or road, it wouldnt hinder a sale, whereas if the half-acre is underneath one of the buildings, it could pose a challenge. None of that information was brought up at a Tuesday School Board meeting during which Superintendent Jesus Jara gave an update on the Trumbo property. The School Board does own the property and nobody has the rights to this property, Jara said. Board Chairman John Dick was aware of Kesslers questions but said hed rely on the advice of the districts legal advisors. I have to accept our attorneys telling us its clear, he said. I dont think theres anything there. Friday, Naval Air Station Key West spokeswoman Trice Denny was researching the matter with station Executive Director Ron Demes. The Trumbo discussion runs ancillary to a Tuesday board vote to give Glynn Archer to the city for use as a city hall; part of the deal is that space at the school be reserved for future district offices and that buses, now housed at Trumbo, be moved to city-owned property on Stock Island. Board member Ron Martin reiterated his support for moving the bulk of district administration to unused space at Marathon High School. Jara already works there at least two days a week and the bulky information technology department has recently moved to Horace OBryant Middle School.Navy conveyance: Land must be used for educationBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSThe boards prioritiesKeynoter StaffEach member of the Monroe County School Board has named his top five priorities for the School District.They are:John DickBecome the top academically rated district in the state.Have the highest paid teachers in the state.Maintain a 5 percent fund balance.Maintain open communications,with the media and public.Keep long range and intermediate plans ...fluid and flexible.Andy GriffithsMake Keys schools in the top 5 percent of state schools.All employees are highly effective,dedicated to continuous improvement and committed to achieving the vision.Strong and effective communications,partnerships and collaborations.The culture is healthy;the environment is beautiful, safe and nurturing.Students and staff are appreciated.The districts fiscal management is world class.Duncan Mathewson5 percent fund balance for 2012-13 budget year.Plan Bif a Tuesday referendum,poised to generate more than $9 million in operational revenues,does not pass.Keep raising the bar for learning expectations,particularly reading and writing in grades nine through 12.Raise average Scholastic Aptitude Test scores to the national average.Make students and teachers passionate about learning.Ron MartinMaintain 5 percent fund balance.Meet class-size mandates from the state.Superintendent search.Protect the academic integrity of the district.Keep highly qualified teachers in the district.Robin Smith-MartinMaintain a 5 percent fund balance.Administrative performance management system aligned to strategic priorities.Search for best-fit superintendent.Effective internal/external communications.Top 10 percent in Florida based on national core standards.
Mom who tried to sell baby gives up custodyBy agreeing that she had put her three children in danger when she tried to sell one of them to a Lower Keys resident, Kenia Quiala Bosque avoided a trial in a Miami dependency court on Jan. 20. The children will remain with their father, Osmani Pelegrin. Bosque, 30, still faces a felony charge of trying to arrange an illegal adoption when she tried to sell her youngest son to an acquaintance for $7,000 on Dec. 4.The investigation began when Bosque called an acquaintance in the Lower Keys, where she used to live. The man alerted the Monroe County Sheriffs Office that Bosque negotiated to sell her 8-month-old child for $7,000 [in] U.S. currency, according an arrest affidavit. Bosque reportedly set a time and place to take the money but did not show up at the Hialeah location. Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents and Monroe deputies then arrested Bosque at her Opa-Locka apartment.Friday, Judge Mari Sampedro-Iglesia accepted a plea deal worked out in the juvenile justice building hallways among attorneys for both parents and the Department of Children and Families. In it, Bosque agreed that under severe emotional distress [she] made an empty threat to exchange her child for a sum of money, that placed her children at imminent risk of harm. The judge ordered a psychological evaluation, individual therapy and parenting classes for Bosque. She will continue having supervised visitations. Bosque, Pelegrin and his girlfriend, who is helping care for the children, all agreed to undergo drug testing if asked, though neither side alleged any drug use. The parties will are due in Sampedro-Iglesias court again on Feb. 14 to work out a case plan.

Staff with the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council opens the three-hour session at 4 p.m. at the Hilton Key Largo Resort, mile marker 97, to take general comments on several pending issues.Among them is a proposal from a council advisory committee to severely restrict the use of powerheads a shotgun shell or bullet held by a spear to fish in federal South Atlantic waters. Another option would be to consider a special fishing-license endorsement for powerhead fishing or even an endorsement for spearfishing.The rationale is that release of undersized fish or protected species is not an option once speared, as it is with hook and line, says a staff report. So a diver needs to be sure of the target and know the rules size limits, closed seasons, etc. before any fish is speared.Powerhead fishers generally target large, slowgrowing fish, which may limit the speciesgrowth, committee members said.

The council directed staff to draft new regulations. Tuesday, the amended law passed on a 4-1 vote, with Councilwoman Ginger Snead dissenting. She reiterated her concerns from the first reading on Jan. 10 that mobile vending should not be allowed at all. Were trying to beautify Marathon, she said. Were spending [millions] of dollars on sewers and infrastructure to make this town one people want to come visit. She also voiced concern with the council adding a provision explicitly forbidding any mobile vending in Marathon other than food.But Planning Director George Garrett was clear that there is no provision in our code to provide for other types of mobile vending. Councilman Mike Cinque agreed, saying only food vending is allowed and the existing law had no restrictions on it.If this fails tonight, then food vending is allowed 24/7. It is allowed in our code today. Theres absolutely no restrictions on it. To do nothing I dont think is wise, he said.City Attorney John Herin said hes comfortable adding the food-only provision.The council heard complaints about the law from five residents, as well as Kevin Patterson, a Missouri preacher who owns a mobile food vending business with his wife. Hes considering a job with the Marathon Church of Christ on 26th Street.I certainly understand the downfalls of mobile vending units, but if this passes to the limitation of two hours, wed not be able to do business and wed not be able to move here, Patterson said.Stanley Switlik Elementary School teacher Steve Ferrise again addressed the council. He planed to park his mobile seafood vending cart in the lot at the former Paradise Water Ice stand on 107th Street.Four to six hours would be more reasonable. We need to let the consumers make the decision whether Im going to stay in business or not, he said. Attorney Frank Greenman spoke against the law, asking the council where the new language extends to mobile mechanics or car washers. Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay said its not the same thing. If I call someone and they come to my house with a truck or a van, theyre doing me a service, not vending, he said. This is an ordinance in the best interest of our business community overall.Strict time limits remain in the ordinanceBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONMarina and harbor rates going upIts getting a little more expensive to call the City of Marathon Marina home. Citing a need for additional revenue to offset rising operational costs at the marina and adjoining Boot Key Harbor mooring field, the City Council on Tuesday approved the first increases there since August 2009.The monthly mooring-ball rate increased from $275 to $300 with the new fee schedule, while monthly dinghy dockage for vessels at anchor increased from $135 to $225.Those rates include one weekly sewage pump-out, use of the marina facilities and parking for one vehicle. Mooring ball rates include dinghy dockage.City Manager Roger Hernstadt said the rates were changed to make anchored vessels pay 75 percent of what those on mooring balls pay.We had a little bit of inequity from people at anchor and using all of our facilities at the marina versus people on the mooring ball using all of our facilities, he said.Weekly mooring-ball rates increased from $105 to $110, and weekly dinghy dockage from $45 to $85. Daily mooring rates increased from $21 to $22, and daily dinghy rates from $13 to $22.The council also approved a 32-foot minimum for boats using hard docks at the marina, which provide electricity. The monthly rate for those spots remains $19.75 per square foot in season, but 50-amp power goes from $55 to $65 and 30amp from $35 to $45.In other business Tuesday:The council directed city staff to come back with replacement designs for the dilapidated sign at Jesse Hobbs Park at U.S. 1 and 41st Street.Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay represented the city at Martin Luther King Jr. Day festivities at the park and noticed the sign in disrepair. Its a rotten piece of plywood ready to fall down, he said. Lets get a sign that represents our city park and our dedication to our parks. Councilman Mike Cinque suggested the city consider building a permanent bathroom at the park. That will be addressed during budget season this summer.The council gave final approval to a version of a law proposed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency that Monroe County is battling to avoid implementing.The law puts the onus on local governments to determine whether some 50,000 parcels of land up and down the Keys contain threatenedor endangered-species habitat. Its part of a 2010 settlement of a 1990 lawsuit three environmental groups filed against FEMAand the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Photo courtesy FLORIDA STATE ARCHIVESThis is the Marine Hospital Service's quarantine station at Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas,70 miles southwest of Key West,in 1900.That was the final year the station was open after 12 years of operation.The fort is on Garden Key, part of the Tortugas' cluster of small islands.Construction on the massive masonry structure started in 1846 or 1847 to guard against invaders.Construction continued during the Civil War,for which the fort was used as a prison.The Army abandoned it in the 1870s or 1880s but it was still used for such things as the quarantine station,then briefly again by the military in the Spanish-American War.First set aside as Fort Jefferson National Monument in 1935,the monument was expanded and renamed Dry Tortugas National Park in 1992.It's accessible only by boat or seaplane.CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALGlynn Archer obvious choiceLETTERS TO THE EDITORYes to referendumScandal and deep recession rocked the Monroe County School District in recent years but teachers and support staff have kept our school system running during the worst of times. Now, were facing another blow thats equivalent to a loss of $9,000 per district employee unless we vote yes on the flexible-funding referendum on Monday (if you havent voted already). Voting yes will not change your taxes, but every four years we must ask voters to support a tax for operations while we continue to reduce the capital millage by the same amount. The vote is required per a state statute. Our millage will remain the same in total but flexible funding allows us to use capital money for operations. This year it is especially imperative. Most of our operating budget is based on property values, which have dropped 35 percent the last five years. Weve already cut one-third of the administration and reduced our instructional staff by 12 percent while managing to comply with the state Constitution for class size something other districts simply ignored. These instructional personnel were resource teachers, reading coaches, media specialists and counselors. Weve also already reduced support staff by 20 percent; this does not include the tough decision to outsource custodians. These were all painful decisions that have a negative impact on students. But we had no choice in order to balance the budget with revenue declining due to dropping property values. Still, this year we remain a state-rated A district for the sixth year in a row, as we are tied for eighth among all 67 counties for FCATscores. Our SAT(a national test for college entrance) scores are up in reading, math and writing over the same period. We did this despite our unique challenges with geography and poverty. Not many know that we have a very high number of students on free and reduced lunch. Our schools are no longer mostly middle class. Without passing the referendum, we will be forced to balance the budget by eliminating even more people or salaries, or both. Eighty percent of our budget is people, the other 20 percent stuff. Most of that stuff is fixed costs such a fuel, utilities and insurance. We can only cut so much toilet paper, folks. Our budget is down 15 percent the past five years and yet our student population remains constant. Without the flexible funding, we will have to cut another 10 percent. Its an understatement to say this would be a disaster for the students and employees who have kept this district marching toward success despite the odds. So our way of saying thanks to our students and all who work in the schools is to say yes to flexible funding. Andy Griffiths School Board, District 2 Key WestThanks for the memoriesI want to take this opportunity to publicly say thank to you all the patrons who have walked through the doors of the Marathon Community Theatre the past seven seasons while I served as executive director. I made literally hundreds of friends over the years and always enjoyed seeing everyones smiling faces while they socialized in the gallery and heard their laughter while they watched the shows. I had the most wonderful group of volunteers who so graciously gave of their time to help me make the evenings go smoothly and have some fun while working. I couldnt begin to name each one, but they know who they are and how much I appreciate them. So many members were so good to me, and I look forward to continuing our relationships. I cant thank enough for always being there to support me Ginny Krieg, the box office guru, and Paul Buckley, the master of all projects I needed help with. I love the little theater in the heart of the Florida Keys and will always treasure the memories I have there. I wish the best for the rest of the season and know there are some terrific shows coming up that you dont want to miss. Thanks for a wonderful, truly community experience. Loretta Geotis MarathonKey West City Commission should accept the school and preserve history at the same timeHeres some unsolicited advice for Key West: Dont look a gift horse in the mouth. Now that the Monroe County School Board has voted 5-0 to give the city Glynn Archer Elementary School for use as a city hall, commissioners get to weigh in yet again. It seems hard to believe, but the debate over city hall has smoldered for years, with previous commissions deadlocked on the question of Old Town vs. New Town. Mold and other problems doomed the current City Hall on Angela Street, and move or rebuild talks began as far back as 2005. In 2006, the idea of a joint citySchool District Trumbo Point project surfaced, then sank. When that trail went cold, talks about acquiring Glynn Archer on White Street surfaced. This was after the Harris School, declared surplus, was sold when the only offer came from a private developer. When Craig Cates ran his first campaign for Key West mayor, he argued for Glynn Archer as the right choice. Its a historic building, has plenty of space and is in a location that is better for more Key West residents than the hemmed-in Angela Street property. Concerns over the cost of acquiring Glynn Archer (at one time appraised for $8 million) stymied that movement, with a divided commission still debating the Old Town vs. New Town. Well, White Street happens to bridge the divide, so that argument no longer holds water. And now that the School Board has voted 5-0 to give Glynn Archer to the city, another cost argument falls by the wayside. Whats left for the advocates of building new on Angela Street? Well, they point out new construction techniques can make a new city hall much more energy efficient. They also argue a new building built right is more green than trying to retrofit something like Glynn Archer. That overlooks advances in green-building technology for retrofits. And that fails to recognize that a city hall serves many purposes, only one of which is to provide office space for the workers housed there. It also serves as a civic emblem of a citys past and what it sees as its future. What makes Key West a unique place to live (and visit) is not the new buildings we can envision, but the legacy of old and historic architecture that has survived the wrecking ball because devoted preservationists and neighborhood activists have fought to save our legacy. Todays City Commission owes it to generations past and future to keep up the good fight. Glynn Archer is worth saving. It will make a grand city hall with plenty of life left in those good old bones.LETTERS TO THE EDITORD.C.is run by cashHeres the message: Abolish the electoral college. Get rid of private/corporate/union bloc campaign donations over $50 and limit the amount the independently wealthy can spend on their campaigns in line with the others. Get rid of political action committees (all they are is taxfree pig swill for the person whose name is attached to it, anyway). Make all gifts illegal. Set up a public fund where everybody with the requisite numbers of signatures on their petition receives the same amount of public funding. Term limits for the Supreme Court, Congress and the Senate. Cap and publish the monthly White House travel and entertainment budget. Campaigns start two months before the election. No TV ad buys, just one commercial, three runs for each candidate. Too many good candidates drop out because they run out of money. Alternatively, make it mandatory to recuse yourself from votes relating to the interests of any person who has contributed more than $50 to your campaign or group of individuals that has contributed more than $5,000. The only way to clean up Washington is to get the money out of Washington. In every other civilized country, accepting campaign contributions or any other gifts from groups who you support with your vote in government is called a bribe.

I have been going there every year for 14 years, drawn to its magic, traveling more than 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean from England. For me, as for countless other people, this special place is a place of warmth, laughter, friendship and fun. I first discovered dolphins, the Dolphin Research Center, co-founder Mandy Rodriguez, the staff and the meaning of dedication to animals in care on my first trip to the Florida Keys. Along with discovering the dolphins and the joy they give everyone, I discovered the Keys in all their wondrous glory the wildlife, the landscape, the skies, the sunsets, the ocean and the interesting people who live there. The Keys are amazing lush, mysterious, unique and, for me, my spiritual home. Wherever I am, I yearn for them. During my pilgrimages to the Keys, I have watched the Dolphin Research Center grow and develop. I have seen dolphins born, much-loved dolphins pass away and dolphins rescued and rehabilitated, some from far away, taken in and care for, for the rest of their lives. I have witnessed wonderful times and poignant moments, as in the case of Louis, a young dolphin rescued from the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico now living at the Dolphin Research Center. I have been fascinated watching children with severe learning disabilities, seeing their faces light up with pleasure when they are close to a dolphin and how the dolphins, as if aware of the childrens needs, are extra gentle in their behavior without being directed by the trainers to be so. In 2007, a special young man, Shawn Rodriguez, died at age 26. He loved the dolphins his father nurtured and loved talking about them, enthusing and educating the guests, especially the children. In his memory, the Sprayground was created dolphin flukes, whale tails and animal faces with waterspouts switching on and off at random, making children scream in delight. And this January it was the Wounded Warrior Project Soldier Ride that visited. Injured soldiers are invited to swim with the dolphins, an amazing sight to see. These are magic moments. Grassy Key, the dolphins, the people, the ocean and the incomparable beauty and uniqueness of the Keys (this land of sky and water) all make for a magical place, a place I am truly and profoundly glad to have discovered. I intend to return whenever I can, always. Maggie Chidsey Yorkshire, EnglandZip lines ruin natureI read about the Crane Point Museum and Nature Center in Marathon with interest, as our small community in Chase, British Columbia, is facing a zipline development proposal, too. These attractions are popping up everywhere and are being sold to city councils and decision makers as ecoeverything and educational cant miss. These developments continue to encroach on green spaces at what I find is an alarming rate. Future generations may well hold a different view of how eco-friendly these zip-line attractions are. Certainly, the infrastructure sounds minimal but only when compared to some other more intense development. There are simply some places where no development should be permitted. Crane Point is a prime example. Instead of being stewards for the environment and protecting special natural areas that many treasure, some are being duped into constructing zip-line rides and attracting thrill seekers. After approvals and agreements are in place, and when the novelty of zip-lining wanes, there will be nothing to stop these entities from adding additional infrastructure to bolster their bottom lines, further eroding peaceful places that are enjoyed by so many.

Key Largo 451-4788 | Key West 294-4788 | Big Pine 872-4788102481 Overseas Hwy., Key Largo, FL 33037 BusinessSticking to resolutions isnt simpleFeb.1 arrives Wednesday. How are those resolutions for the new year workin g out? If youve already dumped one or more resolutions, dont feel alone. About 80 percent of those who make resolutions break them. If youre in that cate g ory, youve g ot a couple of choices. You can say to heck with it and g o back to the lifestyle you wanted to revamp just a month a g o. Or you can pull out that list a g ain, check it over and see whats g one awry. First, look to see if your resolutions are too numerous, broad, va g ue, unrealistic, or unachievable. Lets look at each cate g ory.Too numerous: I saw a list of resolutions recently that had 34 items on it, with a tar g et date six months away. Its g reat to have lots of g oals. But tryin g to make 34 si g nificant life chan g es in six months is simply insane. If your list has more than three major g oals, start slicin g and dicin g .Too broad: Look at the most common resolution on most peoples list lose wei g ht. Thats a g reat overarchin g g oal, an achievement that can be celebrated miles down the road. But expectin g to lose a si g nificant amount of wei g ht within the next block is like expectin g to wake up one mornin g in another persons body.Too va g ue: This takes too broad a step further. Lose wei g ht is doable, but its important to have specific numbers attached to it. Like X pounds per week. Goals need to be measurable and that g enerally means havin g a numerical g oal.Unrealistic: I will lose five pounds a week g ets closer to where you want to be, but is five pounds a week doable? Maybe under strict medical supervision, it could be done. But in typical cases, like tryin g to g et in shape for bathin g -suit season, people will either kill themselves tryin g or much more likely drop that resolution like it was somethin g nasty they picked up with their bare hands.Unachievable: I will lose one pound a week until I wei g h 90 pounds. Narrowly focused, has realistic and specific metrics. So far, so g ood. However, is 90 pounds an achievable g oal? Few normal adults could wei g h 90 pounds and maintain any quality of life. And bein g seriously underwei g ht would have as many dan g erous medical consequences as bein g morbidly obese. Most of us make annual resolutions because we want to make chan g es in our lives that ultimately will make us healthier and happier. Thats a g ood instinct and well worth pursuin g So dont toss that list of resolutions just yet. What major cate g ories do you see? Maybe there are a lot related to wei g ht, exercise, stress reduction, etc., that could be lumped under the cate g ory of health. Group as many of your resolutions as -you can into as few cate g ories as you can g et away with. Which is the very most important to you? Heres a hint: It will be the one that has the most resolutions in that cate g ory. When you find it, pat yourself on the back. Youve found your No. 1 priority. Now start plottin g your route to g ettin g there. Take small, measurable steps that show your pro g ress. Celebrate when you reach a milestone. And dont beat yourself up if you wander off the path now and a g ain. Its not the end of the world; you can always find your way back.

The Canes game-planned to focus on defense to blunt Gullivers quick offense, trying to win a low-scoring match rather than compete in a shootout. It worked for the first 20 minutes, as Gulliver repeatedly was turned away from the Cane net until just before the first water break.

For as low as $49.28 Call Laura at 743-5551 LivingGrowing chocolate in South Florida?For people who have chocolate cravings, heres a surprising source of satisfaction: The chocolate persimmon sweet and creamy with subtle notes of chocolate flavor. The smooth-textured chocolate persimmon (Diospyros dignya) originates in the dry forests of central Mexico. This is a different fruit than cacao, which is what chocolate comes from. Growing cacao in South Florida can be a challenge but a chocolate persimmon is an easy tree to grow in your back yard. The chocolate persimmon is also called black sapote due to the unusual black color of the flesh. The chocolate persimmon has a green skin and the shape resembles a tomato. People have the idea that fruit comes in bright colors, like red, orange, yellow and green, but persimmons can even be brown. Just remember that there are other colors and flavors in the flora kingdom. The chocolate persimmon can be a favorite fruit for kids because of its sweet flavor. The ripe fruit has a rich cocoa colored flesh with the creamy texture of chocolate pudding (without the fat). It is delicious when eaten as a dessert with cream and a touch of rum or vanilla. The fruit is a natural dessert by itself when eaten fresh, but it can also be used as a chocolate substitute in recipes and milkshakes, or simply mixed with yogurt and lemon juice for a refreshing treat. Another way to enjoy the chocolate persimmon is by cutting it in half and covering it with passion fruit. In Mexico, the pulp is mashed with orange juice or brandy and served with cream. It is also delicious mixed with wine, cinnamon and sugar.The historyThis legendary fruit has been cultivated since the days of the Mayans in Yucatan, Mexico, where it originated. It was introduced to South Florida in the early 1900s by the Bureau of Plant Industry of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Numerous seedlings have been grown in Miami-Dade County since then, and a few selections have been propagated and are available at some local nurseries. Because there are both male and female trees when grown from seed, it is preferable to use grafted trees, which can bear fruit within three years. Most of the chocolate persimmons in South Florida ripen from October through March, a time when we have few tropical fruits to enjoy. Chocolate persimmon is a handsome tree with shiny, dark green leaves useful as an ornamental specimen for your backyard. The tree grows well in a variety of soils as long as it is well drained. It is especially well adapted to the rocky soils of South Florida. Young trees can be injured by low temperatures below freezing (32 degrees). Mature chocolate persimmon trees do not need frequent watering. Mulching is a great practice, as it helps retain soil moisture, reduces weed problems and improves the soil. Mulch with a 2to 6inch layer of bark, wood chips or similar material and keep mulch 8 to 12 inches from the trunk.The fertilizerThe chocolate persimmon tree is not demanding in its fertilizer requirements. After planting, when new growth begins, apply a half to full handful of 8-3-9 or similar fruit-tree fertilizer mix. The fertilizer should be sprinkled lightly below the drip line of the canopy three times per year. Take care not to apply the fertilizer to the trunk. Chocolate persimmon is grown on a small commercial scale in Florida. Knowing when to pick the fruit can be tricky because of the green color of the skin that lightly changes when mature. The fruits are picked when full size but unripe (olive-green color), and allowed to ripen about 10 days The fruit is soft when fully ripe. The fruit can be used fresh or frozen, and ripe fruit will store for three or four days under refrigeration. For longer pulp storage (six months), seeds and skin should be removed and the pulp frozen. Chocolate persimmon fruit is rich in Vitamin Aand Vitamin C, and has a relatively high amount of potassium. This tropical fruit is a distinctive element of South Florida cuisine due to the mild fruit and its brilliant gel texture. It develops a caramel flavor when cooked, making it a great base and desirable filling for pies. If you have the room to plant a fruit tree that produces a delicious treat and adds to your South Florida back yard, chocolate persimmon is the perfect option.

Ensure your dog is OK with itWhether around the block or across the country, moving can cause stress for the entire family and the American Kennel Club wants to remind pet owners that dogs can feel it too. Dogs thrive with consistent routine especially when changes are going on around them, explains AKCs certified applied animal behaviorist, Mary Burch. Making it a priority to maintain your dogs schedule while making other preparations for the move will help ease his transition into your new home. The AKC offers tips on how to help Fido with the move to your new home. Among them: Keep a consistent routine. As hectic as it is preparing for a move and settling into a new home, make it a priority to keep your dogs routine as consistent as possible. Certain conflicts cant be avoided but adjustments can be made to keep your pooch content. Does a new longer commute impede your morning walk? Try getting up earlier for your stroll to keep consistency.Make socialization a priority. If your dog mostly stays at home, make it a point to take her on trips before the move. Whether it be the local dog park or on an errand where she will meet new people, socializing your dog in the time leading up to the move will make the experience more familiar and therefore less stressful for her.Take a visit to the vet. Prior to moving, visit your vet. Making sure your dog is healthy is always important, but it especially is during the stress of a move. In addition, your vet will be able to offer last-minute suggestions that apply specifically to your dog. During your visit, make sure that you are up to date on all vaccinations and have enough of your dogs medication to last while you settle into your new home.Make Fido feel special. Once you arrive at your new home, set up your dogs area right away. Aspecial spot for his bed, crate and food dish will make him more comfortable, especially with the extra commotion of unpacking going on around him.Miami HeraldOUR PETSPhoto courtesy MIAMI HERALDThis dog is on the move but certainly doesnt look upset about it.

*Saturday,January 28,2012 5B Keynoter KeysNet.com McKee Artists F und auction Saturday, Jan. 28The Keys arts commun ity circles the date each season for the Anne M cKee Artists Fund fine a rt auction. The red-letter day is h ere: Saturday, Jan. 28. A uction preview begins at 7 p.m. at the Fort East M artello Museum, 3501 S. R oosevelt Blvd., Key W est. New Hampshire auctioneer Charlie BaileyGates will begin the sale at 8 p.m. For more than a dozen years, the Anne McKee Artists Fund auction has been the place to be seen in what organizers dub one of the most popular, passionate and artsy parties of the year. The event got its start more than a dozen years ago when McKee decided it was time to expand the grants program she pioneered for artists in need of financial assistance W ork by 78 Keys artists at East MartelloBy LAttitudes Staff A RTThe debate over how much technology has taken over our lives gets an insightful and comic twist in Dead Mans Cell Phone, which opens Feb. 2 at The Waterfront Playhouse. Written by Sarah Ruhl, the play has proven to be a popular piece among regional and community theater groups and drew strong reviews when it opened in New York. Abeguiling comedy . with surprising twists and turns, wrote The New York Times Afresh and humorous look at the times we live in, added Variety. The story seems simple enough. In a quiet cafe, a cell phone rings. And rings. And rings. The stranger at the next table has had enough. When she confronts the man with the incessantly ringing phone, she discovers hes dead. Should she answer the phone? Should she not? Well, the play answers that and many other questions as the stranger finds herself plugged into a life not her own. Charles Isherwood, reviewing the play for the New York Times in March, 2008, wrote that: Ms. Ruhls work . blends the mundane and the metaphysical, the blunt and the obscure, the patently bizarre and the bizarrely moving. Characters in her plays, which include The Clean House and Eurydice, negotiate the no mans land between the everyday and the mystical, talking like goofs one minute and philosophers the next. She writes surrealist fantasies that happen to be populated by eccentrically real people, comedies in which the surface illogic of dreams is made meaningful made truthful by the deeper logic of human feeling. Her theme in Dead Mans Cell Phoneis the paradoxical ability of the title device (and the people who use it) both to unite and isolate. Sarah Jessica Parker played the lead role of Jean when it opened off Broadway. The Waterfront Playhouses production, directed by Stefanie Sertich, has Lela Elm in the lead role, along with: Brandon Beach playing Gordon/Dwight; Robin Deck playing Mrs. Gottlieb (the dead mans mother); Stephanie Yosen playing Hermia, and Shakti Assouline in the role of The Other Woman/Stranger. Michael Boyer did the set design; Carmen Rodriguez did costume design. Lighting Design is by David Bird and Trish Manley handled stage manager duties for this production. Preview performances are scheduled at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 31 and Wednesday, Feb. 2. Regular performances begin Thursday, Feb. 2 (opening night) and run through Feb. 18. An After Party following the opening will be held in the Sculpture Garden. Tickets range from $20 to $50 and can be purchased by calling the box office at 294-5015; or online, visit: http://waterfrontplay house.org.Waterfront play explores lifes dis-connectionsBy LAttitudes StaffTHEATER This caller ID proves quite surprising D esdemona Lets Go by Michael Palmer Ink and Acrylic on Canvas 14x14See McKee,7BMasquerade leaves much to be desiredAlbert Nobbs. Rated R, 1 13 min., opens nationwide J anuary 27. Starring Glenn Close, M ia Wasikowska, Janet M cTeer, Pauline Collins and B rendan Gleeson, Albert N obbs tells the story of an I rish woman who has been m asquerading as a man for t hree decades. Its adapted f rom a little-known short story by George Moore, f irst published in 1927. Close won an Obie A ward when she first played t he role off-Broadway in 1982 and tried for many y ears to bring it to the big screen. In what must have b een a labor of love, Close c o-wrote the screenplay, w rote the original song for t he film and produced the movie, which depicts the tremendous divide between rich and poor in late 19thcentury Ireland. Close (The Big Chill, FatalAttraction)stars as the title character, who is a butler at Morrisons Hotel in, an upscale place owned by Mrs. Baker, played by the wonderful Pauline Collins. Alberts dream is to open a tobacco shop with a wife by his side to help run the business. Inspired by another woman posing as a man (Janet McTeer as a towering Hubert Page), Albert thinks his plan is possible. I was a bit confused about Alberts plan and didnt get the impression that he/she is a lesbian, so the only apparent reason to take a wife would be to keep up the masquerade. But it stands to reason that if a woman can own and operate a hotel in 19th century Ireland, then a woman could own and operate a tobacco shop as well. The awkward scene where Albert and Hubert go to the beach especially led me to believe that Albert would love to be a woman again. So why couldnt Albert come out, so to speak, and operate the shop as a female and end her 30 year charade? To complete his plan, Albert focuses on one of the maids at the hotel, courting her in his own peculiar way. But the object of Nobbs affection, Helen, played by Mia Wasikowska (Defiance, The Kids Are Alright) is involved with an unscrupulous workman who wants to use the relationship between Albert and Helen to con enough money out of Mr. Nobbs to go to America. Other than the cross-dressing angle, that love triangle is what drives the film.

So its not surprising that Close has just received her sixth Oscar nomination for Best Actress. (McTeer is also a nominee for best Supporting Actress.) After being shut out on five nominations, Close is overdue for a win. But the constricting role didnt really allow her to flex her considerable acting chops. Her performance is so restrained that Albert almost disappears into the background and shows little expression throughout most of the film. This is a masquerade where the power of the actor truly disappears too bad. In addition, even though the makeup artists have been nominated for an Oscar, her appearance as a man is unattractive, unconvincing and distracting. While the nature of the part may have required Close to be stiff and wooden, Alberts timidity and emotional blankness never really establishes a connection with the viewer.Directed by Rodrigo Garcia (Nine Lives, Mother and Child), the film features a supporting cast that outshines Ms. Close at almost every turn. Brendan Gleeson plays the hotels resident doctor and Bronagh Gallagher is charming as Huberts supportive wife. The meticulous set design and intricately detailed costumes convincingly evoke that time in Ireland when unemployment was rampant and young men walked the streets desperately seeking work.But the ending is predictable and even the climactic scenes near the finish didnt have the powerful impact they could (and should) have had. Worst of all, I never truly believed the major premise of the film that for 30 years Albert could pass for a man in the real world. Tellingly, the film is not nominated for Best Picture. So if you want to see Glenn Close in her Oscarnominated role, go see Albert Nobbs. Just dont expect a wide-ranging and dynamic performance that you would normally anticipate from an Academy Award nominee. At the end of the film, my feelings about the movie resembled Alberts outward facade unfeeling, unmoved and uninspired. Oh, there could have been so much more.Stiff and woodenFrom Film,5B Competing chefs gathered last year on the eve of the Master Chefs Classic,which benefits the Monroe Association for ReMARCable Citizens (MARC).

Instead, each one receives 50 percent of the proceeds from the sale of his or her work, while the fund receives the remainder. The fund awards $1,000 grants to 10-20 artists each year, along with three honorariums named after the late Key West artist Jack Baron, the late Key West Mayor Richard Heyman (who cofounded the Gingerbread Square Gallery), and the late McKee Fund board member Miriam B. Good. In past years, grant recipients have included textile artist Lynne Vantriglia, who founded Monroe Countys Art Behind Bars program; photographer Kimberly Narenkivicius, creator and publisher of The Secret of Salt; pianist and composer Bill Lorraine; poet Danne Hughes; abstract painter and mixed-media artist Janet M. Mueller; writer Valerie Ridenour and performers Zoe HawkinsWells, Amber McDonald and Sonya Manning. When I started, I thought it would help people buy frames and materials, McKee said. I never dreamed it would help people do so many big things. Since 1994, the Anne McKee Artists Fund has awarded more than $140,000 to artists and writers in the Lower Keys.
