Village again looks to Key Largo for sewersLike a couple that cant make up its mind, the willthey-or-wont-they debate is back regarding a sewagetreatment agreement between Key Largo and Islamorada. Islamoradas five-member Village Council voted Thursday night to resume negotiations with the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District about using the taxing districts sewage plant at mile marker 100.5. For more than two years, the village has been considering whether to build its own treatment plant or pipe sewage to Key Largo. Village Council members voted Thursday that the latter is now the preferred option. The issue appeared dead after the village late last year chose international companies Veolia Water and AECOM to design, build, operate and manage its centralized wastewater system. Veolia, which was competing with Indiana-based Reynolds Inc. for the bid, said the project could be designed and built for about $98 million. But that plan involved building a treatment plant within the four-island municipality. Now, if negotiations between the Islamorada and Key Largo officials are successful, Veolia and AECCOM will have to build a system to pipe sewage north along U.S. 1 instead of to a local facility. Mark Blanchard, vice president of AECOM, said his company and Veolia already have such a plan, and that it is up to the village and Key Largo to agree on how much that system should cost. Well know more once the negotiators decide whatCouncil flip-flops and now says piping sewage north is preferredBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comCENTRAL SEWERSAcevedo more than $16,000 behind in paying fine, costsRandy Acevedo, the former superintendent of the Monroe County School District ousted from his post in 2009 by then-Gov. Charlie Crist and subsequently convicted of felony public corruption, apparently isnt complying with terms of his probation.Instead of giving him jail time, Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones sentenced Acevedo on Aug. 28, 2009, to three years of probation; to pay a fine of $15,000 plus court and investigative fees; and to perform eight hours of community service monthly while on probation.Acevedos probationary term is slated to end Sept. 16. According to Assistant Monroe County State Attorney Mark Wilson, Acevedo is more than $16,000 in arrears on his fine and court costs. Wilson said the matter came up this past week when Acevedos father asked about his possibly getting early release from probation; Wilson said he called a local representative of the state Department of Corrections and was told of the accruing payments. Reached by phone on Friday, Acevedo, who works in the electronics department at Sears in Key West, said call my lawyer, Orlandobased Robert Horst. Amessage left with Horsts office was not returned by press time. Wilson said that not being able to pay a fine isnt a violation of probation but, if the debt remains unpaid at the end of probation, corrections officials could seek an extension of the supervision, which would be subject to Jones approval.Ajury convicted Acevedo of covering up more thanProsecutor: Probation may be extendedBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comIN THE COURTSSee Acevedo,3ASee Village,2A ACEVEDOSawyers trial starts MondayFour days before her trial is scheduled to start at the Freeman Justice Center in Key West, Norma Jean Sawyers defense attorneys filed six motions in her felony fraud case.Sawyer, 60, is the former director of the Bahama Conch Community Land Trust. Shes charged with scheme to defraud for allegedly misappropriating money from the nonprofit housing agency. Her trial starts Monday before Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones.Thursday, attorneys Jason Smith and Jamie Garcia asked Jones to exclude some evidence, including testimony from witnesses giving opinion as to the guilt of Sawyer; a reference to the money in question as belonging to taxpayers; and evidence associated with Sawyers son, Adrian Poitier, and his involvement as an employee of the Land Trust.Sawyer allegedly stole more than $90,000 through the misuse of a grant administered by the Southernmost Homeless Assistance League and intended for construction of homeless housing on Julia Street inDefense team aims to quash some evidenceBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comIN THE COURTSDemocrats sue over new mapsDemocrats filed a lawsuit against a congressional redistricting map Thursday, immediately after that plan and a second one redrawing Florida House and Senate districts received final approval from the Republican-controlled state Legislature.The Senate sent the congressional map (HB 1174) to Gov. Rick Scott and the legislative plan (SJR 1176) to the Florida Supreme Court. Both passed in the House last week.Democrats contend the maps violate anti-gerrymandering standards in the two Fair Districts amendments to the Florida Constitution that voters approved in 2010. The suit was filed in state Circuit Court in Tallahassee.Florida Democratic Party officials said they would contest the legislative maps during the Supreme Court review.Three nonpartisan groups that supported the Fair Districts amendments also announced plans to sue once Scott signs the congressional plan.That new congressional plan required by state population increases that give Florida two more seats in the U.S. House moves Monroe County from the area served by U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (RMiami). Monroe now is included in District 26, which is dominated by western Miami-Dade County. U.S. Rep. David Rivera (RMiami) currently represents western Miami-Dade.

The relationship between Key Largo, which is almost finished with its centralized sewer system, and Islamorada, which has barely begun, became particularly strained last summer over the issue of how much Key Largo would charge Islamorada to treat its sewage.Key Largo wanted $11.5 million from Islamorada, but the Village Council wouldnt go above $3 million. This prompted the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District commissioners to cut off negotiations with Islamorada.What is still not clear is whether Islamoradas offer to restart negotiations will be reciprocated. Two of the five Key Largo commissioners Norm Higgins and Charles Brooks adamantly oppose a wastewater-sharing agreement with Islamorada. Wastewater Commissioner Susan Hammaker said at Thursdays Village Council meeting that she and her colleagues will discuss the matter at their meeting on Tuesday. The Village Council agreed to have Islamorada staff, with Councilman Ted Blackburn as an advisor, negotiate with its Key Largo counterparts for no more than 30 days. If no agreement is made by then, Veolia and AECOM will go back to the original plan of building a treatment plant within the village. Within the timeframe of the negotiations, the Village Council plans to hold weekly public meetings to discuss the progress of the talks.Village again courts districtFrom Village,1A Hope abounds forstate bond issueMonroe County Administrator Roman Gastesi often refers to a $50 million bond being approved for Keys sewer projects as a threelegged stool.One leg of that stool is firmly on the ground, as the state House on Thursday approved a $69.2 billion spending plan for 2012-13 that includes $4.8 million to finance the first year of the bond. Its part of a $200 million state authorization from 2009 thats yet to be allocated.The budget line item still has to be approved by the state Senate which has yet to produce a proposed budget and Gov. Rick Scott. Scott opposes the state borrowing money in the current economy. Gastesi and Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority Executive Director Kirk Zuelch met with Scotts staff in Tallahassee Tuesday. The county and Aqueduct Authority are partners in hundreds of millions of dollars worth of sewer projects in unincorporated Monroe.Its one of the three legs of the stool and were having discussions with the governors office so it doesnt get vetoed. They wanted to understand not only the financing, but what the benefits of wastewater [treatment] in the Keys are. Were putting together a little white paper for them, Gastesi said. Monroe County has yet to break ground on its largest project, the estimated $156 million Cudjoe Regional system covering from Cudjoe Key to Big Pine Key. The state mandates central sewers for the Keys be complete by December 2015. The same goes in Islamorada, which has yet to break ground on its own villagewide system. It had chosen Veolia Water and AECOM at the end of last year to design and build a system, and voted Thursday to reopen negotiations with the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District to run sewer lines to the districts treatment plant. Gastesi has said neither the county nor Islamorada where Gastesi lives can begin their projects without state or federal funding. What were telling everybody is this $50 million will jump-start those two projects. Well have enough money that itll be the catalyst, he said.The $200 million total was supposed to be doled out in four increments. Gastesi has lobbied for the county and Islamorada to get the majority of the first $50 million. Hes also talked with Marathon City Manager Roger Hernstadt about the money.For more on this story, go to www.KeysNet.com/News.House approves money in its proposed budgetBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comSEWER CONSTRUCTION COLLINSBettyJaneCollins, 87,of Ocala,FL,wenttobewithour LordonSat,Feb.4,2012.Betty wasborninMiami,FLandlived inIslamoradaformanyyears.

Anew go-slow boating zone at the Jewfish Creek Bridge, intended to protect marine mammals and docked boats, won preliminary state approval Wednesday.There are so many dolphins and manatees that swim in that area, Ann Blute, office manager at Gilberts Resort on Jewfish Creek in Key Largo, said Friday.The zone would be a very welcome thing here, Blute said. Weve been hoping and praying for it. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, meeting near Tallahassee, gave its endorsement to the slow-speed, minimum-wake area that would extend 300 feet north of the Jewfish Creek channel fenders and 800 feet south into Blackwater Sound. Boaters that now can legally speed through the channel at Jewfish Creek threaten the resident marine mammals and throw off wakes that slam docked boats into the dock, Blute said. It drives us crazy. FWC officers held a Dec. 13 comment session on the zone at a Key Largo hearing. Five speakers unanimously endorsed the restricted-speed zone, along with eight people who sent written comments in support. I have been there many times when boats docked at Gilberts have slammed the dock and even got caught under the dock due to passing boat wakes, Dorothy Parker wrote.

ANYWAYTYou Are My EverythingI LUVU S DLMStrongerCloserBetter than everSal Bahama Village in Key West.In November 2006, with the nonprofit Southernmost Homeless Assistance League acting as administrator, the Land Trust applied for a grant from the state Department of Children and Families to construct housing for the homeless at 307 Julia St. The state granted $712,375.Prosecutors say Sawyer then asked for and received $60,000 from the citys Tax Increment Fund to reimburse the Land Trust for expenses already funded by the grant.The criminal investigation was prompted by a financial audit ordered by the Key West City Commission conducted by contract auditor Chad Whetstone, who is acting as Assistant Monroe County State Attorney Mark Wilsons primary witness.Wilson said jury selection, which he expects would take less than a day, should start Monday, followed by a potential three-day trial.Wilson, during a Thursday morning interview, received the six defense motions one by one from an assistant. Its the Thursday before a Monday trial, he said, shaking his head, and then theres this last-minute flurry of activity. Of the defense move to try to exclude Whetstones opinion, Wilson said an accountant cant say something is fraud. Thats a jury question. He can say something is highly unusual. Sawyer was arrested on July 13, 2010, and is free on $20,000 bond. Wilson said theres no mandatory prison sentence, although a guilty verdict opens the door for a sentence ranging from probation to 30 years in prison.Trial to startFrom Sawyer,1A$400,000 in theft and fraud committed by his wife Monique when she served as an administrator at the School District. She used the money for everything from clothes to junk food.She pleaded guilty to eight charges, saying she was feeding an addiction to prescription painkillers. Shes serving an eight-year prison sentence, with a scheduled release date of April 5, 2018. In a separate restitution matter, Randy Acevedo is one month away from paying off $3,955 owed to the School District stemming from the theft. District staff confirmed Acevedo has been making monthly payments of $250 since late 2010. The money in question was spent during his 2008 re-election campaign and paid for with his wifes district-issued credit card.Payments behindFrom Acevedo,1A Land Trust close to dissolutionBob Kelly, acting executive director of whats left of the Bahama Conch Community Land Trust, said he expects to be finished selling off the housing groups former rental properties to the Key West Housing Authority by the end of February. As the groups of the properties have been transferred, Kelly has used the proceeds to pay down $1.25 million in debt accrued by the Land Trust under the watch of his predecessor, Norma Jean Sawyer. Sawyer is set to stand trial next week on a felony charge of scheme to defraud for allegedly misappropriating more than $90,000 in grant funding. Were driving for a final closing of all the remaining properties by the end of February, Kelly said. He said that once all the sales are complete, the Land Trust would still owe around $60,000 to various creditors and contractors. Once were done, we could put the Land Trust out of business, but I think the decision were probably going to reach is each of the four board members will simply resign. Someone could come in and pick it up but thered be no assets and no good reasons I can think of to keep it going. Housing Authority staff estimates it will cost around $1.54 million to rehabilitate the 24 transferred properties to standards applicable to public housing.Transfers to housing agency nearly completeKEY WESTstate and federal legal scrutiny. If approved, the new districts will be used in the 2012 state and federal elections. Republicans have undertaken the sort of incumbent protection and partisan gerrymandering that 63-percent of Florida voters overwhelmingly demanded must stop, said Florida Democratic Party Chairman Rod Smith. Now the courts have to step in to implement the will of the people a job the GOP in Tallahassee failed to accomplish. Republicans insist the maps conform to the amendments that prohibit the intentional drawing of districts to favor or disfavor incumbents or political parties. Senate Reapportionment Committee Chairman Don Gaetz (R-Niceville) argued that it doesnt matter if the maps favor the GOPor incumbents because if they do, that result was unintentional. Effect does not prove intent, Gaetz said. Other Fair Districts provisions say the right of racial and language minorities to elect candidates of their choice cannot be diminished and that districts should be compact and follow geographic and political boundaries whenever feasible. Leaders of the League of Women Voters of Florida, the National Council of La Raza and Common Cause Florida said their groups and four individual plaintiffs will sue in the same Tallahassee court if and when Scott, a Republican, signs the congressional bill into law.Adraft of their planned lawsuit says the map is filled with unconstitutional political gerrymanders intended to favor one political party and certain incumbents, while disfavoring the other political party and other incumbentsThe groups did an analysis that showed Republicans would be favored to win at least twice as many districts as Democrats, although voter registration in Florida is split almost evenly between the parties.The proposed lawsuit also alleges the plan suppresses the ability of minorities to participate in Floridas political process by unnecessarily confining their influence to select districts and purposefully keeping them out of others.GOPdefends the new mapsFrom Districts,1AGo-slow zone coming to Jewfish CreekKEY LARGOBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comKeynoter Staff

Event organizers are scrambling to make the lastminute change from the Marathon Community Park, the usual location, to the terminal at Florida Keys Marathon Airport. Pigeon Key Foundation President Jason Koler said the National Weather Service in Key West suggested moving the event indoors because of a 50 percent chance of rain during the weekend. So Tuesday night I called [Monroe County Mayor] David Rice and asked about moving the art show to the airport, he said. Koler said Rice and other officials County Administrator Roman Gastesi, Airport Director Peter Horton and Marathon Airport Manager Reggie Paros among them were on the scene, checking the viability of the site, within the hour. It was pretty awesome to see this all go down. The county was so accommodating; they bent over backwards to help us, Koler said.Festival organizer Kristin Artz of Pear Planning in Key West said she walked the airport and has reconfigured plans to accommodate the 100 or so food and art vendors.We had to change it quickly and were kind of excited about it, she said. Artz said every inch of the terminal would be utilized for vendors, as well as the area just outside the terminal, which will be tented off in case of rain. Artz said a stage would be set up outside the departure area, whose chairs will be removed, that will feature nine artists performing over the weekend. Headlining those acts will be Casey Weston, a finalist on the NBC singing competition television show The Voice. Shes scheduled from noon until 2 p.m. Sunday. The festival is scheduled for 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. today and Sunday. Tickets are $7 per person for adults, $3 for students and free for children under 12.

Two more homes on Grassy Key burgledGrassy Key residents worried about a rash of break-ins the past month can rest easy, according to the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. Tallahassee resident Robert Skinner, 40, was arrested on Jan. 11 and charged with four counts of burglary and theft, among other crimes, for allegedly breaking into four Grassy Key homes. Another two homes were burglarized on Jan. 24 including one in which a victim returned home and found the intruder outside the house holding a bag full of the residents belongings. Chad Scibilia, captain at the Sheriffs Offices Marathon substation, on Friday said police are close to making an arrest in those burglaries. He identified the suspect as a local juvenile who reportedly lives in the Grassy Key area. Weve got latent prints and were expecting an arrest in the near future, he said. Were waiting on physical evidence to come back. Skinner was arrested on Stock Island after being stopped while driving a stolen car. Police searched it and found property inside that came from the burglaries just hours before on Grassy Key. They also found pawn slips from Joes Cash Flow Pawn Shop in Marathon. The investigation revealed Skinner apparently burglarized four homes that morning, three on Morton Street and one on U.S. 1 at mile marker 58.6. He reportedly took electronic equipment, tools, fishing equipment and jewelry from the homes. Police were able to recover most of the stolen items and return them to the owners. Skinner remains at the Monroe County Detention Center on Stock Island, and has subsequently been charged with burglarizing a Lower Matecumbe Key house.Police say the suspect is Keys juvenileBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comCRIME FRONT SKINNER

After more than two years of back and forth, the Monroe County School Board agreed last month to give the school to the city in exchange for space to park buses on city-owned property next to Gerald Adams Elementary on Stock Island.Mayor Craig Cates, who has pushed for the White Street school since his election in 2009, said architect Bert Bender has already priced the project, calling benders figures a legitimate estimate on the cost of these repairs.Arehabilitation of Glynn Archer, as in retaining as much of the structure as possible while converting it into functional office space, would run $18,852,619. A total renovation, retaining the exterior but rebuilding inside, would cost $23,808,999. I feel we have a fair price, Cates stressed, calling Bender a nationally recognized restoration architect.Despite the reassurance, commissioners still expressed concern about unforeseen costs due to the buildings age more than 80 years and likely presence of asbestos and lead-based paint.We do have to question what these costs will be, Commissioner Clayton Lopez said. The Glynn Archer project moves forward at the expense of a long-gestating rebuild of the current city hall at 525 Angela St. Based on a cost-comparison prepared by Assistant City Manager Mark Finigan, the Angela rebuild, including a new fire station, would cost $22,591,836.Per the deal with the School Board, Glynn Archer wont be available until June 2013, after the 300 students there are moved to a new school on the Horace OBryant Middle School campus.Commissioner Teri Johnston differentiated between the selection of Glynn Archer as saving a historic building and as a cost savings compared to Angela Street. Said Johnston: But its not about cost savings. If the community of Key West is open and willing to spend the money ... I dont think theres anybody here that has an objection.Commissioners want specific cost estimatesBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTKeating pushes salary hikeMarathon City Councilman Mike Cinque says a proposed $15,000 pay raise for City Manager Roger Hernstadt is the dumbest thing the council could do since it took Boot Key Bridge.Councilman Rich Keating floated the idea at the Jan. 24 council meeting, Hernstadts two-year anniversary with the city. Hes halfway through a three-year deal agreed to in June 2010. Keating said hell suggest on Tuesday to raise Hernstadts pay from $130,000 per year to $145,000.Its no time to be giving out raises, especially to the leader. We made a three-year deal 18 months ago. This has nothing to do with Roger, but the council is making a bad decision, Cinque said. Cinque added that hes never received more phone calls or e-mails from residents about another issue. And none of them are in favor of giving him a raise, he said.It was clear at the Jan. 24 meeting that Keating, Mayor Pete Worthington and Councilwoman Ginger Snead support increasing Hernstadts pay. Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay and Cinque did not.Ramsay said Friday that hes shocked the council would consider giving Hernstadt a raise. He cites the June 22, 2010, council meeting at which the three-year deal was reached. Roger and the council agreed on a contract which had a raise from $110,000 to $130,000. Amotion was made that we promise no more raises until the end of that contract period and my position is a contract is a contract, he said. Keating said he feels Hernstadt does an excellent job and thats why he proposed the raise. He said the idea was unsolicited but that he was aware Hernstadt received other offers. Hes shown his professionalism and expertise at his job and we need him where he is going forward. I think itll at least get him up there with his peers, Keating said. Worthington said hes tired of the revolving city manager door and wants Hernstadt in place long term. Hes not getting a car allowance like every other manager in the county and hes also underpaid looking at every other manager in the county, he said. County Administrator Roman Gastesi was given a new four-year deal in January and a raise from $181,440 per year to $185,040. Outgoing Key West Manager Jim Scholl makes $180,000 per year but receives no benefits from the city. He also draws a full U.S. Navy pension. Islamorada Manager Ed Koconis had his year-to-year contract renewed in January and got a raise from $135,000 per year to $140,000.

As expected, five No Name Key homeowners on Feb. 4 filed a notice that theyll appeal Monroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlins Jan. 31 ruling that puts a final decision on No Name electricity in the Florida Public Service Commissions hands. The appeal will be in the Third District Court of Appeal. Audlins decision was the latest in a decades-long battle among 43 homeowners over electrification on the off-the-grid island, where homeowners use solar arrays and generators for power. Lower Keys utility Keys Energy Services planned to finalize a deal with the No Name Key Homeowners Association in March last year to run commercial lines to and through the island. Owners were set to foot the estimated $650,000 bill before Monroe County raised concerns over permitting issues. Audlin ruled in favor of No Name homeowner and commercial-electricity proponent Bob Reynolds, who contends the PSC, not Audlin, has jurisdiction over the matter. Thats based on a 1991 territorial agreement between the PSC and the Keystwo electric utilities, Keys Energy and the Florida Keys Electric Cooperative. Reynolds filed a motion to dismiss a Monroe County lawsuit against Keys Energy and No Names 43 homeowners that sought to clarify whether the county is obligated to issue permits to run lines over county-owned conservation land or for homeowners to connect to power poles. Pompano Beach attorney Robert Hartsell represents the five homeowners who are filing the appeal and said he feels Audlin gave the territorial agreement too much weight in his decision. He called the agreement a red herring in the case. The territorial agreement between Key Energy and [the co-op] was signed ... to establish the boundaries of service. Thats all the agreement does, Hartsell said.

We take the position that there should be no more catch-share programs until we evaluate the ones that already exist, said Bill Kelly, executive director of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association. See if they turn out to be a boon or a bust, Kelly said Thursday, summarizing his comments to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at the boards meeting this week near Tallahassee. Under catch shares, a maximum fish harvest limit would be determined, with a set percentage of shares allocated to individual fishermen. FWC board members had asked agency staff to give them an overview of catchshare programs and other limited-access privilege programs supported by some groups as effective ways of managing saltwater fisheries. The FWC staff presentation concluded, These types of programs can be a useful management tool, but added, These programs are not necessarily suited to all fisheries and should not be designed without industry request. After the presentation Wednesday, FWC commissioners heard about 15 members of the public speak on the issue, then discussed it among themselves. No action was taken, and the FWC board gave no instructions to staff on catch shares, said agency spokeswoman Amanda Nalley. This simply was a presentation to learn more about catch shares, Nalley said. Its something that is being brought up more and more, especially at the federal fishery management councils. Florida law has gear-limitation programs, like the cap on the number of lobster traps in the commercial fishery, but does not allocate individual fishing quotas that exist in the federal catchshare programs. We remain very concerned about catch shares because of two common elements that are seen worldwide fleet reduction and job loss, Kelly said. Acatch-share program for red snapper in federal Gulf of Mexico waters has already resulted in a 25 percent reduction in the [commercial] fleet, Kelly said. If we had that kind of reduction here, or even a smaller one, it would have a dramatic effect on every coastal community in the Keys.Some people who hold federal catch-share allocations in the Gulf supported the concept Wednesday. The commentary was both positive and negative, Nalley said.Conservation groups like the Environmental Defense Fund say catch shares have advantages over traditional fishing regulations like size limits and seasonal closures.The National Marine Fisheries Service has asked its regional fishery councils to consider catch shares but the agency does not require it.The South Atlantic Fishery Management Council has rejected catch shares for fisheries in lobster and snapper-grouper.In other action at the Wednesday FWC meeting, the board approved a rule to allow king-mackerel commercial boats from Collier County to carry their catch from Monroe County waters back to their home port when Collier-area waters are closed to mackerel fishing from April 1 to July 1. Previously the boats had to sell their catch, caught legally in open Monroe County waters off the mainland, in Key West or other Monroe County ports. That caused the fishermen to experience economic hardship with higher transportation costs.Board:More research needed on the issueFISHERIES ST AR TERS Beef CarpaccioThinly sliced Wagyu beef tenderloin,with shaved parmesan and white truffle oil.Tropical Salad Fresh buffalo mozzarella,over slices of heirloom tomato, drizzled with honey truffle vinaigrette.

CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALFinally,relief for homeownersLETTERS TO THE EDITOR$25 billion settlement with banks is also a message to rogue lendersThe nations five largest banks servicing home mortgages agreed this week to a landmark settlement that will eventually pay out $25 billion to homeowners caught up in the monumental foreclosure mess. Floridas share of that restitution pot is placed at $8.4 billion, which sounds like a lot, but wont cover all homeowners who find themselves underwater on their mortgage (where their homes value has fallen below what they owe to the bank). Some critics of the settlement reached by the banks with 49 state attorneys general say its not enough. Others say it will encourage borrowers to stop paying on their mortgages in order to qualify for a renegotiated loan. Based on figures released by the attorneys general, roughly 1 million homeowners could get relief with reductions in the amount they owe. Another 750,000 could get help refinancing at lower interest rates. In Florida, the relief adds up to $7.6 billion in loan modifications, both reducing the principal (whats owed) and other direct relief. Another $309 million will lower interest rates for borrowers who find themselves underwater. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi: This agreement holds banks accountable and puts in place new protections for homeowners in the form of strict mortgage servicing standards. That last piece may turn out to be the most far-reaching curative for what happened during the crazy run-up to the housing bubble:Each state had its own regulations and enforcement mechanisms and too many didnt enforce.Federal regulators were largely absent without leave during the housing bubbles heyday 2003-06.Underwriters like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac turned out to be playing footsie with bundlers of mortgage-backed securities to enrich their own fees and pad top executivesridiculous compensation packages. So where does all this leave us after its said and done? Well, $25 billion is not chump change, although it pales in comparison to the $246 billion exacted in the 1998 multi-state tobacco settlement (Florida was part of that Big Tobacco lawsuit). And it does blow the whistle on past practices, slaps a big fine on those who skirted the rules, and warns financial players who werent in court yet that they better start playing by the rules. To be enforced nationally. In the end, that may be the best curative medicine administered so far in this mortgage meltdown debacle. Only customers of the five lenders in the agreement are covered. If you are not contacted but your loan is serviced by one of the five banks, you can call to see if you qualify for the program: Ally/GMAC: (800) 766-4622.Bank of America: (877) 488-7814.Citi: (866) 272-4749.JPMorgan Chase: (866) 372-6901.Wells Fargo: (800) 288-3212.Plans for Pigeon KeyIf Pigeon Key has a bad ramp leading to the island and bad bridge, then I would suggest its time for inspection and repairs. If the bridge repair people, Pigeon Key and solar-array company work together, I believe the cost for repairing the ramp and bridge wouldnt be so much. Keeping cars, bicyclists and skaters off the bridge and ramp due to extra weight is understandable until repairs are finished. I believe a temporary walkway ramp could be built while the old one is torn down or repaired, thus the walkers who visit Pigeon Key could still walk around. If the bridge is too weak or broken up in certain areas, then close off those areas from walkers until the railing, bridge and all can be totally repaired. As each bridge section near the ramp is repaired, reopen it to the public. When the new ramp and bridge can be repaired and finished, then keep the temporary one for emergencies. Just because theres a bad ramp is no reason to close Pigeon Key forever. Steven McGarvey Columbus, Ohio Editors note:Monroe County plans to fix the ramp from the old Seven Mile Bridge to Pigeon Key. The state Department of Transportation has no plans to repair the old bridge, estimating the cost at $16 million.Condoms save livesTuesday is Valentines Day. Its a day of kissing, embracing, passions being kindled and affection reciprocated. Just dont let the wrong kind of love bug bite. Feb. 14 is also National Condom Day. As the flowers are delivered, as boxed candies fly out the chocolatier door and the red-and-pink greeting card rack goes empty, a lot of people dont want to be alone. Arandom hookup can quickly progress to sexual activity. But syphilis or gonorrhea dont represent much of an afterglow, genital herpes or warts tend to cool ardor very quickly and HIVis a game-changer that results in a losing hand. There are more than 15 million cases of sexually transmitted diseases diagnosed every year in the United States alone, chlamydia being the most common bacterial infection (about two-thirds are younger than 25). Forty-five million people are infected with the herpes virus and an additional 1 million contract the virus every year. Twenty million people are infected with human papillomavirus (HPV). More than 5 million new cases occur every year. It is estimated there are 1.2 million people living with HIVin the U.S. alone. National Condom Day was first observed more than a decade ago and since then, it has been used to inform people of all ages that unless all parties involved are 100 percent sure they are free of any type of infection, condoms are essential. Hence, the perfect date night should include protecting the sexual health of anyone in your bed, including yourself. Take responsibility for sexual health by always using condoms. Consistent HIV-testing is just as important, and its free and administered in only 20 minutes, without needles or a blood draw. For a complete listing of venues, dates and times, call 296-6196. Rodney Ross AIDS Help Key WestProfit off pythonsYour Feb. 1 article about the pythons in the Everglades wiping out the Everglades mammals was most interesting and very informative, but it does not offer any solution to the problem. I wonder, too, what the past training classes held by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission taught the public about eliminating these nasty reptiles. Perhaps, if I may suggest, we should invite the Texans who round up rattlesnakes for their annual rattlesnake barbecues and ask them to teach us how to catch the snakes and prepare savory barbecues and other dishes out of them. In Southeast Asia, people make belts and ladiesshoes out of python skins. If we do likewise, we would be able to solve this python problem both ways: Create new, delectable dishes and establish a novel cottage industry. As for people who snub their noses at consuming snake meat, how much difference is there compared to eating alligator tail, frog legs or, for that matter, lionfish, chicken or pigs feet?

Thereafter, I went on to run logistics for Outward Bound in the Everglades for four and a half years. I continuously drove vehicles and boats deep into the Everglades as far as the Gulf of Mexico. I have seen and can readily find hundreds of crocodiles, thousands of alligators and endless numbers of native venomous and nonvenomous snakes. But I have yet to find the 100,000 pythons that federal scientists claim inhabit the Everglades. I can claim four episodes: l Once I saw a python illegally dumped in the fields of the Frog Pond Agricultural Area and mercilessly murdered by farmers who chopped its head off just to watch its body writhe for the next 20 minutues. l I can also testify to another python dumped on the west side of U.S.1 on the 18-Mile Stretch to the Florida Keys and run over by a tractor. l I gave a six pack of beer to one of my instructors who successfully took a picture of a frozen dead python at the cutoff between Roberts River and the North River in the Everglades in the horrible cold winter of 2010. l I can testify with extreme prejudice that inmates at the Southern Glades Youth Camp claimed they used to see a python come by the fence to beg for food after I would leave work at the end of the day. After years and millions spent in the scientific studies that were recently publicized in the media, I can only say that the methodology they used and their results are highly questionable at best.It is incredible to claim such high numbers of decreases in raccoon, opossum and rabbit populations just from spending months and years driving by at night and counting the heads of animals whose eyes shone back at them when hit by a beam of a flashlight.Early in my tenure at Southern Glades, we had a huge overpopulation of raccoons and feral cats living off the dumpsters in the area jails. After three years, the overpopulation was solved when we became aware that panthers had moved down into the area from the northern Everglades.We also had become aware that the population of rabbits had declined due to an outbreak of distemper that decimated its population by the 18-Mile Stretch. These boom-and-bust cycles in the population of rabbits are extremely common throughout history.At the end of the day, pythons, like so many other exotic animals in Florida, die at a rate of 80 percent whenever we get horrible cold spells in our winters. Just ask the iguanas. To argue that pythons are going to move up the Florida peninsula and cross state borders is ridiculous. Many of our so-called native animals also die in huge numbers when our winters turn frigid. In 2010, I observed dozens upon dozens of frozen, dead, fully grown manatees in the rivers of the Everglades. I witnessed volunteers drive hundreds of turtles down to the Turtle Hospital in Marathon to save them from the same cold spell.If there are 100,000 pythons in the Everglades and fewer than 2,000 have been captured in the past decade, then these scientists are very poor hunters and trappers. If 90 percent of the pythons captured have been captured along State Road 9336, these must be the most urban pythons I have ever known.As long as pythons do not become the apex animal in the Everglades, they will just be another source of food for the alligators and crocodiles that have a very difficult time making it through cold winters with very little food compared to their distant cousins in the Mississippi River.If pythons become the apex animal, then what? Not much. Do we need to protect our children and pets from pythons? Yes, just like we need to protect them from other animals and humans.If we can have hunting season for the 1.7 million alligators in Florida, then we can also have hunting seasons for pythons. We can sell the meat, skin and body parts just as we do with alligators, and have roadside attractions and more. I am one of those who took a course two years ago with the FWC to be a first responder in the capturing and executing of pythons. I find it unethical and immoral to murder animals just because they dont belong here or just because we want to have a preemptive strike against any exotic species. The federal funding for all of these efforts is yet another source of federal waste. Frank Resillez of Key Largo has extensive experience working in the deep Everglades.GUEST COLUMNWe need a hunting season for Everglades pythonsBike paths wreckedJust a bit over a year ago, major work was done on the bike trail. Along Florida Keys Marathon Airport, the trail was widened and repaved. Markings were sprayed on the intersections to mark the bike and pedestrian way. The brick (although fake brick) areas were put on either side of intersections and yellow markings were sprayed, as well. Just months after the completion of the improvements, the state Department of Transportations contractors began repaving U.S. 1 through Marathon. So much shoddy restoration has been done to the bike path damaged by the DOTcontractor working on U.S. 1 in Marathon. These workers did not even sweep up gravel and their mess after completion. Dont they have brooms?Numerous cuts across the bike path were made. The bike path was used as the construction path for work on the street lights. Backhoe stabilizers punched holes in the paving and crushed the edges of the paving. Plenty of damage has been done but the most egregious is in the cuts across the bike path, where now the black repaired areas are as rough as a country road.The long black patch on the bike/pedestrian way on the Vaca Cut Bridge is among the longest and worst. This makes this bridge crossing dangerous in a very confined space. It needs to be fixed properly.Who will be responsible to see that these unacceptable black patches of rough bike path are repaired to the standard of smoothness of what was there before the cuts and damage were made? Are the citizens to accept such shoddy and substandard work? No. Restore the bike path to its former quality.Someone with authority needs to ride the length of Marathon and experience what every bike rider experiences every time he or she uses the bike path bumpy patches where it was once smooth.

About five years ago, my partner retired and we were fortunate enough to find a general manager who is doing a great job. From time to time, the GM and I have discussed possible ownership in the business. The problem is, I have a 23-year-old son who may become active in the business within the next two years. If this happens and other factors seem right, I would one day like to turn the business over to him. Ive discussed this situation with friends and my business advisors and have not been able to come up with a good answer to this dilemma. Do you have any suggestions? Answer: The first thing I would do is make sure your general manager is aware of this situation. Show him this column. Chances are, hes been aware of it for awhile so youre not going to surprise him. Acouple of options come to mind. One might be to transfer a minority interest in the business to the general manager with the understanding that, should your son one day decide to become an owner, your son would have the right to buy back the minority interest. The amount and conditions of the buy-back should be decided upon sooner than later, and the agreement should be documented. Use your attorney or a good corporate small-business lawyer recommended by your trusted advisor in crafting this arrangement, more commonly known as a buy/sell agreement. Another option that comes to mind would apply where you dont want to muddy up the water in the event your son becomes an eventual owner. This option would entail asking the key employee whether he or she wouldnt rather have more money than an ownership interest in your company. Depending upon age, risk tolerance and personal considerations, your general managers preference may run to an annual cash bonus instead of equity in the business. I would advise that the bonus be tied to sale, profitability or some other objectively quantifiable measure. Athird option might be viewed as a hybrid of the first two. Many of my past clients have installed key employee incentive programs that reward the employee based upon an increase in value of the business (which usually implies increased profitability). The attractiveness of this plan is that the employee is economically put in the same position he or she would be in as an owner of the company, but in fact the employee never becomes an owner. Although at first difficult to understand and explain to the employee, these kinds of plans are simple to document and implement. Usually, a letter from the owner to the employee is all that is required to explain the key elements of the plan:As of what date does the plan begin?From what value is the increase in value to be measured?How is the value of the company to be determined?What percentage of the increase in value does the key employee get?How will the increase in value be paid?What happens if the key employee leaves, and does it make a difference in terms of payout if the employee is terminated, retires or leaves voluntarily? In considering the above plan, the prudent owner, as with all ideas he or she may get from reading my columns, should discuss the above variables with professionals knowledgeable in their respective disciplines who also have a good working knowledge of the specific circumstances surrounding the owner and the business.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 10A Saturday,February 11,2012 NOBODY KNOWS MORE ABOUT WATER THAN VEOLIADid you know that approximately 4.8 billion people, roughly half the worlds projected population, could live in water stressed areas by mid-century if we continue to follow business as usual water management practices? In India and China alone, 1.4 billion people live in areas of high water stress. This issue is not limited to Asia. Many prosperous areas closer to home such as California and Arizona here in the U.S., are already facing issues of water stress. Water sustainability is emerging as a major global issue. So what does this have to do with the Florida Keys and Islamorada? The Village Council selected the Veolia Team to negotiate a contract for Islamoradas new wastewater system because the Veolia Team provides the best value for the Village. Every day, Veolia Water works on these water sustainability issues around the globe. Veolia Water is the world leader in water and wastewater services and technological solutions. Our mission is to preserve the water cycle through creative solutions that protect human health and ensure sustainable ecosystems. CONSIDER: wastewater services. with drinking water. The depth of wastewater and reuse water system design, build and operate expertise that the Veolia Team brings to Islamorada cannot be matched by anyone. This expertise translates into lower costs, higher reliability and environmental sustainability for the communities served by Veolia Water. Thats why the Village Council selected Veolia to negotiate a contract for the new wastewater system. You can be assured that the Veolia Team will get the project done right. We guarantee it.

Story, 3B B Sports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment TRY THE MARATRIHoops ends forMarathonFlorida Christian School ended both the boys and girls basketball seasons at Marathon High School the past week. The boys overcame a slow start to make a game of it Tuesday against the No. 1 seed Patriots, but fell 56-44 in the District 16-3Atournament opener. The girls lost Feb. 2 to the Patriots also a No. 1 seed in their tournament opener, 49-31. Boys coach Kevin Freeman said the Dolphins (4-15) were confident heading into the game, but came out flat against a Florida Christian zone defense. Marathon trailed 15-5 after the first quarter and 2613 at the half. The Dolphins were just 4-for-18 shooting (22 percent) from the field in the first two quarters. We just could not get anything to fall and we started trying to get it back with one shot, Freeman said. Marathon made a run during the third quarter after the Patriots came out in a man-to-man defense, cutting the deficit to 40-35 heading into the fourth. The Dolphins outscored the Patriots 22-14 in the third quarter. Nelson Rojas had 11 points in the quarter and Jesse Deluca had five. Seniors Trevelle Beckford and Dwayne Ellis each made three-pointers during the run. But the Dolphins were never able to get within closer than five points in the fourth quarter, and the Patriots pulled away late when Marathon was forced to foul to extend the game. We actually won the second half, but we dug ourselves too much of a whole and couldnt buy a basket. Our defense picked up in the third quarter and we played well but not well enough to win, Freeman said. Beckford finished with 15 points, two rebounds and two steals, while Ellis had nine points and seven rebounds in what was the final game as a Dolphin for both players. Ellis finished his career with 1,014 points, just the fifth Dolphin to do so. Rojas finished with 15 points and two rebounds to lead a cast of younger players who found themselves playing significant minutes this season. Freeman said he hopes the experience and their enthusiasm carry over to next season. Theyre already talking about taking a couple of weeks off and getting back in the gym, he said. The girls team finished the year 6-13 overall after the loss to Florida Christian. But the team is markedly improved over the past two seasons and returns the entire roster for another year in 2012-13. The girlsimprovement could be seen just by looking at their results against a strong Patriots team this season. The girls lost by 55 points (69-14) on Nov. 14, by 36 (48-12) on Dec. 9 and by just 18 last Thursday. Freshman JohnNisha Qualls led the Dolphins with 13 points, including 9-for-11 shooting from the free-throw line. Taja Hidalgo had nine points, Yailin Nieda four, Amanda Davis three and Jessica Forest two.Hoops fundraiserThe boys basketball team is scheduled to hold its annual alumni game fundraiser on March 28 at 6 p.m. at the high school.

Tipoff is at 7, and the game will be broadcast on WKWF-AM (1600). If the Conchs win, they will play their first home state playoff game in 10 years next Thursday night. If they lose, they will open the playoffs on the road. Top-seeded Key West advanced to the title game by defeating Coral Shores, 61-47, in the semifinals Wednesday night. The Conchs had expected that tonights opponent would be Gulliver Prep a team that took them into overtime in January but the Raiders were upset by St. Brendan, 61-47, in the other semifinal. I was a little surprised at that, but St. Brendan is a well-disciplined team, said Key West coach Anton Lopez. They had the confidence and the fans behind them, and thats what theyll have [tonight]. In the regular season, Key West defeated St. Brendan twice 61-46 in Miami and 71-65 at home. The Conchs will have a big size advantage, but the Sabresonly 6-footer, 6-2 Santi Becharra, scored 32 points at the Bobby Menendez Gym. In Wednesdays game with Coral Shores which was delayed an hour because the officials arrived late the Conchs fell behind, 5-0, but quickly recovered to lead, 20-9, after the first quarter. With his eye on the title game, Lopez rested his starters during the second and third quarters, and, for the most part, the reserves responded. The lead was 34-17 at the half and 51-32 after the third quarter, although the Hurricanes got to within 11 points, at 4130, late in the third period. Of the Conch starters, only center Anthony Rice was in double figures, with 10 points. Anthony Guieb scored seven, Thomas Butler had six. JeQuan Lopez added four and Ryan Wagner had three. Off the bench, Donjae Valdez scored 14 points, Michael Vereen scored seven, Keante Green had four and Gerald Hernandez, Elliott Valdez and Tony German each had two. Coral Shores, which finished the season 5-18 and lost three times to the Conchs by an average of 27 points, was led by Alberto Anderson, who had 18 points. Also in double figures were Terrell Taylor (14) and Will Ismer (10).14-0 squad travels to St.BrendanBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASKETBALLPhoto by MIKE ENGELThe Marathon Triathlon Club,better known as MaraTri,holds its fourth event at Sombrero Beach on Feb.18,a sprint triathlon half-mile swim,12-mile bike ride and 3-mile run and a mini sprint,half those distances.Here,Franco DAscanio explains the rules at a previous event.To get specifics about the Feb.18 event,call 731-5588 or visit the clubs website at www.maratri.com Hurricanes jump into their spring seasonsSpring sports at Coral Shores High get into full swing this week with baseball, softball, track and tennis all starting play.

How about neither. I have joined the ranks of people who go nowhere without their shopping bags. My collection includes grocery-store bags purchased at the checkout and more interesting ones gifted to me by friends and family. Even my husband, who wouldnt normally carry any bag, has his own manly versions purchased from a dive shop and home improvement store. Aside from the obvious benefits of a reusable bag theyre stronger and can carry much more than a plastic bag it is not a disposable, single-use item. The proliferation of plastic is more than just a litter problem, it is a huge threat to the marine environment and living in the Keys brings that so much closer to home. Plastic products have risen from 1.5 million tons in 1950 to 130 million tons in 2009 annually. As much as 90 percent of floating marine debris may be plastic. About 1,000 miles west of San Francisco, there is something known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a swirling mass of plastic debris twice the size of Texas. In ocean waters, Styrofoam breaks down into tiny polystyrene components, polluting the entire water column, not just the surface. So not only do marine animals swallow plastic bags that resemble jellyfish in mid-ocean or ingest small pieces of plastic they mistake as plankton, they also are threatened by toxic, plastic-derived chemicals. As researchers continue to examine plastics impact on our bodies and the oceans, theres no doubt that cutting down on the material will help the environment. Medical studies have cautioned against the chemical BPAand phthalates found in plastic products leaching into our foods. While plastic manufacturers have come up with products using recycled materials and less petroleum, the best way to reduce your plastic impact on the Earth is to simply use less. My husband and I have taken several steps to reduce the number of disposable plastic items we use. Its not easy but over time, it does get better. We have a growing collection of reusable bags. We very rarely buy bottled water but rather drink water from the fridge dispenser or fill our stainless-steel water bottles for trips out. All leftovers are stored in reusable containers. I use a reusable plate cover in the microwave when reheating leftovers. When entertaining, I use reusable cutlery, plates, dishes and glasses. When we cannot avoid the use of disposable plastic, we make sure we recycle. Monroe County accepts all types of plastic, Nos. 1 though 7. Visit www.mon roecounty-fl.gov for more information. Additionally, Colleen Murphy, the county recycling coordinator, accepts invitations to speak to community groups and at meetings and schools. You have probably heard the term carbon footprint or even water footprint. Now you can add to that plastic footprint. Its hard to live plasticfree but lowering your plastic footprint by practicing waste reduction and reusing as much as possible is environmentally sound, good for your health and contributes to the health of the fragile coral reef that surrounds us in the Keys. Shirley Gun is a member of the Keyswide nonprofit Green Living & Energy Education. She writes about green living and the four Rs reducing, reusing, recycling and rot (composting). She can be reached at email@example.comTheyre harmful to environment in all waysGREEN SOLUTIONS SHIRLEY GUN Know your plasticsWhy are most plastics marked with a number inside a recycling symbol? The simple answer is that each number represents the type of resin made to produce the plastic. Because each resin is different, these numbers affect how and where you can recycle plastics. You don't have to remember the name. Plastics are identified by Nos. 1 through 7. Look for them on the bottom or side of your plastic products.No. 1: Polyethylene terephthalate. Clear beverage bottles, oven-ready meal trays and water bottles.No. 2: High-density polyethylene. Colored or cloudy bottles and jugs, yogurt containers and other tubs, milk bottles, detergent bottles and grocery/trash/retail bags.No. 3: Polyvinyl chloride. Plastic food wrap, loose-leaf binders and plastic pipes.No. 4: Lowdensity polyethylene. Dry-cleaning bags, produce bags and squeezable bottles.No. 5: Polypropylene. Medicine bottles, aerosol caps, drinking straws and rigid food containers such as yogurt, ketchup bottles, sour cream, butter tubs.No. 6: Polystyrene.

As the years go by, the man and the city change but the chicken is always there. Finally, as the city deteriorates, we are left to wonder who will survive, the chicken or the man? Its an entertaining but bizarre tale. Wild Life 13 minutes At the turn of the century, a young Englishman moves to the Canadian wilderness to start a ranch but is definitely not up to the task. He sends glowing reports home, exaggerating his progress. But as winter closes in, the comparison of his fate to that of a comet is sadly apropos. Its a melancholy look at unfulfilled dreams.Short Films (Live Action)Pentecost 11 minutes When a young lad serves as an altar boy at an important mass, he cant resist the urge to bring his lifes passion into the service. The pregame pep talk the priest gives the boys before the big mass is hysterical and at the end of this amusing short the viewer will be saying No, no, dont......! Raju 24 minutes A German couple travel to India to adopt an orphan and complications arise. They are faced with a moral dilemma that is heart breaking and thought provoking at the same time. Good acting and sharp cinematography do an effective job of bringing the sights and sounds of crowded Kolkata to life. This intense feature forces the viewer to think of what he/she would do in the same situation. The Shore 31 minutes Directed by two-time Oscar nominee Terry George (In the Name of the Father, Hotel Rwanda), this film tells the story of an Irishman who, after 25 years away, returns to Belfast with his American daughter. His attempt at reconciling with the two people he thought he abandoned all those years ago doesnt go as planned and mistaken identities result in a hilarious chase through the tidelands. The Shore is a warm-hearted film with an ending that should leave a smile on the viewers face. Time Freak 11 minutes Stillman invents a time machine, but rather than use it to do good or change history, he cant get past yester-Short films cover range of subjectsFILM Craig Wanous KeysFilm Hidden gemsabound in Old Island toursAcentury-old Bahamian conch cottage, a citadel house with lush gardens and world-class art, even a 1907 fire station complete with stone arches will be on display at the Old Island Restoration Foundations Feb. 17-18 tours.

Once the humble abode of laborers and servants, this century-old Bahamian conch cottage has been completely transformed. This home offers an example of carefree Keysy living on a small but stylish scale. Owners enjoy a pool for relaxing under a leafy canopy. Arestoration of an adjacent cottage next door gives visitors a peek at metamorphosis a restoration-inprogress that will be open for a walk-through. 727 Washington Street Behind gates guarded by bronze lions lies a courtyard worthy of an eastern potentate. The name Las Casitas understates the artful arrangement of structures surrounding tiled pools and ponds designed by local firm, Bender & Associates. This home evokes both the Spanish influence on local culture as well as an opulent Florida style developed in recent decades, while fulfilling current-day lifestyle expectations and building code demands. This enclave has been the stage set for numerous fundraisers and parties. 1717 George Street Venture to an out-of theway residential street. Shielded from beach-bound traffic by an intimidating wall, an airy contemporary citadel houses an extensive art collection. Inside, a quiet pool and lush garden greets the visitor. Climb a stairway to airy treetop living. The Gallery on Greene owner, Nance Frank, possesses selected works from local artist she has represented, as well as historic scenes created by WPA artist. 228 Julia Street Through the portico, behind the garden wall, on the side of town not often seen by tourists lies a compound reminiscent of late 20th century Bohemian Key West. The century-old main house was moved here from another location after a 1970 fire cleared the lot. The guesthouse may also have been a transplant, although it seems to have grown onsite. Apatina of artistic sensibility has imbued the space courtesy of past residents and the current owner/journalist, Connie Gilbert. Fire Station #3 Located on the corner of Grinnell and Virginia Streets, this firehouse is nearing completion as a museum, replete with antique fire-fighting equipment, including the pole. Back in its day, a horsedrawn, steam-powered pump charged to the site of conflagrations from behind Romanesque arches made of cast stone. Firehouse caretakers will welcome a donation towards completing this historic restoration. Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden Present an OIRF ticket at the gate to this garden on College Road for free entry to GardenFest, Feb. 18-19, The plant and art fair takes place on the grounds of the historic site, which opened in 1936 as part of a WPA plan to revitalize Key Wests faltering economy through tourism.

The opportunities are lost on him but his friend Evan sees what the machine is doing to Stillman and finally has to interfere and reboothis friend. The acting and editing are excellent and this wellmade film is over far too quickly. Tuba Atlantic 25 minutes Oskar is an old man with an obsessive hatred of seagulls who finds out that he only has a few days to live. He wants to reach his estranged brother who lives across the ocean in America but the brothers phone has been disconnected and theres no way to contact him...or is there? Birds fall from the sky and windows are shattered but his brother does finally hear from him, in a most unusual way. This short is so well done that the subtitles are almost superfluous. My favorites are The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore and The Shore but all of the shorts are worth seeing. I think The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore will win the Oscar for animation because of the beautiful art and Raju will win for live-action because of the subject matter. To see if Im right, tune in Sunday night, February 26. Or better yet, join me at the Tropic Cinema and watch the telecast on the big screen. Hope to see you there.Oscar contendersFrom Nominees,5BChoir seeks members for Easter concerts The Lower Keys Orchestra and Cantata Choir are seeking both musicians and singers to perform in the group's annual Easter Cantata.
