In the Keys, the FHP investigates plane crashes.Deputy Becky Herrin said passing boaters called in the report of the Cessna 172 about 1 p.m. Friday. She said one body was found about a mile and a half north of Key Haven in the Gulf of Mexico, which was the crash site. The second one was found about a mile and a half from Stock Island, indicating the plane could have crashed sometime ago.This was the fifth plane crash in the Keys since September but the first in which people died. In December, a sightseeing biplane crashed in waters off Marathon. It was an opencockpit, single-engine Waco YMF airplane piloted by Alvin Reinauer, 37, of Key Largo. He was not injured, nor were two passengers. In November, a twinengine Cessna Citation 550 carrying five people skidded off the runway at Key West International Airport and crashed in the runways crash zone. No one was hurt.Also in November, a Gulfstream 150 failed to brake upon landing at the airport and also crashed in the crash zone. That plane was carrying Rick Hendrick, owner of NASCARs Hendrick Motorsports, and his wife, Linda, along with a pilot and co-pilot. Rick Hendrick suffered four broken ribs and a broken shoulder.In September, the pilot of a small Rockwell Commander reported power failure on take-off from Key West and skidded into the crash zone.Bodies found Friday off Lower Keys, but crash may have happened earlierLOWER KEYS AND THEYRE OFFRacing pigs quick little guys and meandering fat guys make their way around the track at the Stuffed Pig restaurant in Marathon Friday.The restaurants National Pig Days take place today and Sunday starting at 10 a.m. and include lots of races both days,along with food and more.The weekend benefits the Grace Jones Day Care Center and Kreative Kids Academy.

We can dispute them in the future but we have to pay them up front, he said. AHCAadministers the state Medicaid program and bills the county for its portion of a patients costs. Monroe is responsible for county residents, but the state bills often contain questionable addresses. County Social Services Director Sheryl Graham is responsible for weeding out the faulty bills. She wouldnt be able to do so under the revised law. Graham said she calculated the $777,176 hit to the county by adding up the exact number of dollars the state billed the county versus what it declined to pay. I went through all the bills for a year and added up all the amounts that the state billed us and that was where we came up with that number, she said. The statewide costs to counties are enormous, according to a spreadsheet prepared by AHCA. Monroe could be on the hook for $2.79 million worth of denied claims in previous years. Statewide, that number is $271 million. The expected annual cost increase statewide if the bill passes is $70.3 million. Miami-Dade County is expected to see a $13.3 million per year increase, while Broward Countys increase would be nearly $7 million.Gastesi explained the bill (SB 1988) to the County Commission last Wednesday, giving the example of a patient who repeatedly listedLegislation would limit ability to challenge billsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMEDICAIDSee Medicaid,2AFive now running for Keys sheriffAdd another candidate to the 2012 race to replace the retiring Bob Peryam as Monroe County sheriff in January 2013. Wednesday, Upper Keys Deputy Mathew Koval, 52, of Tavernier filed to run as a Democrat. The agency veteran, hired in 1981 as a courthouse bailiff and deputized in 1987, joins a crowded field alongside:Fellow Democrat Tom Peteck of Little Torch Key, a 24-year veteran of the Sheriffs Office who works as a civil-affairs deputy. Republican Jake Brady, a 23-year agency veteran working as a sergeant in the Marathon office.Republican Edwin Bill Grove of Tavernier, an investigator with the Monroe County State Attorneys Office who worked for the Sheriffs Office from 2005 until 2010.Republican Rick Ramsay of Marathon, a Sheriffs Office colonel and the undersheriff the past eight years. Hes been with the agency since 1987.Many consider Ramsay the frontrunner, but Koval says this has nothing to do with trying to oust Ramsay. I think Im the more qualified person. Its time for new, fresh blood. Koval, married with children, says the agency does a good job but he cites a litany of areas where he sees a lot of room for improvement. He criticizes the speeding policy Ramsay implemented following the June 2010 fatal crash of Deputy Melissa Powers, who struck a truck in Key Largo while going in excess of 100 mph. She was the fifth deputy killed in a car crash on duty since 1989, and the third since 2007. Following her death, Ramsay imposed restrictions on when deputies can run with their lights and sirens on including requiring permission from a sergeantVeteran deputy latest to seek top cop seatBy LARRY KAHNlkahn@keynoter.comELECTION 2012State audit slams School DistrictMonroe County School Board Chairman John Dick is calling for heads to roll in light of a preliminary state audit of School District financials released on Friday. For the second year in a row, the Florida Auditor Generals Office found 15 problems with the districts financial reporting, including one material weakness, the most damning finding that can be contained in an audit. The audit covers the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2011. The previous fiscal year, there were 16 problems found in the districts annual financial report. The material weakness is for how the districts tax return was prepared. That includes not properly documenting payments into an investment fund, overstating general-fund receivables and payables by more than $5 million, and understating debt by more than $2 million. Other findings indicate less-than-stellar controls over construction management, food service, adult education fees and fuel use. The fuel-use problem basically amounts to employees improperly logging what they used and for what; in one case cited by auditors, the reported fuel consumption for one truck ranged from 59 mpg to 22 mpg. Under these conditions, the audit reads, the districtLots of problems are discovered 2nd straight yearMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSSee Audit,2ASee Sheriff,2ABy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKeynoter StaffLast-inning heartbreakThe Coral Shores High School baseball team gives up last-inning homers,falls to Gulliver.Story, 1BFirehouse on AngelaThe Key West City Commission gives the OK to design plans for a new Old Town firehouse.

The race for the job, which pays just over $150,000 annually, now includes three candidates: Catherine Vogel, a former chief assistant to Kohl, is running against Ward in the Democratic primary. All candidates for the post must file and qualify by April 20.Both the Democratic candidates worked for me when I was state attorney, Kohl said.The office then had a lot of very experienced individuals, Kohl said Friday. Dennis Ward replaced them with comparatively inexperienced people. Thats his prerogative but you end up with inexperienced people running the show. Kohl came to Monroe County in 1987 to work as an assistant state attorney. He moved from Key West to the Upper Keys in 1989. He left the office in 1995 before winning election in 2000. Kohl has been in private practice since 2008.Im happy to stand on my record and my offices record, said Ward, 60. The office functions effectively. Weve dealt with public corruption and misuse of public funds throughout Monroe County. Thats something [Kohl and Vogel] turned a blind eye to.Kohl said Wards office publicly announces investigations [into elected officials] when there is no evidence and there are no prosecutions. Its not our job to harass people.Ward said his office maintains a corps of experienced prosecutions with a strong record of convictions. The only major felony case weve lost is one I inherited from Kohl, he said. Since that early one, we have not lost one case involving crimes like murder, robbery and rape.Primary elections will take place Aug. 14, with the general election on Nov. 6.ELECTION 2012By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org doing so. That is a huge mistake, Koval said. I suggested there should be certain calls we can respond to. In some cases, you cant get approval. They dont encourage you to go to medical calls. We should be the first to arrive, we can save lives. He says crimes are not investigated by detectives in many cases. They only investigate solvable crimes. I think a detective should follow up every crime and investigate it. They dont do that now. Another problem we have is our dispatch center, Koval said. They make mistakes daily. They send us to incorrect addresses, dont always say if its an emergency.And, he said, the lack of dedicated marine and K-9 units in the countys unincorporated areas hinders officersabilities in the field. In Islamorada and Marathon, which contract with the Sheriffs Office for police service, thats not the case, said Koval, who was a K-9 deputy for 14 years (his dogs were Szultan and Prinz).One dog for a county this size, and the length of it, it doesnt work, he said.Ive been with the agency for over 30 years and I see areas that can be improved, Koval said. I feel I can improve the law enforcement in the Keys and get it updated. I feel were behind the times. He holds a bachelors degree in criminal justice from Florida International University and am very active with the Girl Scouts, a troop leader. I was a substitute teacher for a while, Im very community involved.He says having a sheriff whos married with kids would be better for the county than someone whos not married specifically pointing to Ramsay.Im settled, Koval said. The colonel, hes living a single mans life. My goal is to protect everyones family and everyones property. I know I can beat Ramsay, he said. I think Im more qualified than him. The primary election is Aug. 14. The general election is Nov. 6. Five in raceFrom Sheriff,1Ahas limited assurance of the reasonableness of fuel consumption and there is increased risk that unauthorized use of district fuel may occur without detection.You cant figure out how to log fuel use? Dick asked. Fire them.To me, Dick said, this is incredible. Its the most important document we do ... and its all a mess. Somebody needs to be fired on this stuff. There should be a couple of heads rolling on this thing.We are pleased with this decrease in findings, Superintendent Jesus Jara said, However, I am not satisfied with the overall report. We will take corrective measures to address the areas of weakness and continue to strive for constant improvement.Once the state reviews Jaras response to the audit findings, a final version will be released.Audits damningFrom Audit,1A Man charged with threatsAStock Island man was jailed Friday afternoon, accused of threatening a judge and deputy sheriffs family with gunfire.Michael Haggerty, 48, is charged with making threats against Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia and a Sheriffs Office deputy by posting on Facebook:Judge Luis Garcia has denied my rights to a fair hearing can u people believe the [expletive] the county n the Dowling family has made?? Time to go get my guns out of storage and even the score today people, it been fun see you in the next world!The Dowling family is that of Deputy Matt Dowling, whose wife works in county Code Enforcement. The threat against the judge is believed to be in regard to a temporary injunction petition filed against Haggerty; the threats against Deputy Dowlings family are believed to be related to a longstanding issue Haggerty has had with Deputy Dowlings wife, Deputy Becky Herrin said. Before making the threats during the week of Feb. 13, Haggerty reportedly called Garcias office and spoke with the judges assistant; he was belligerent, demanding to know what was happening with the case, Herrin said. The assistant informed him Garcia denied a motion he filed, and he began ranting on the phone, so the assistant hung up. Soon after that call, he posted the Facebook threats, Herrin said.The Sheriffs Office posted a protection detail for both Garcia and the Dowling family while detectives investigated.On Feb. 17, Detective Sgt. Bobby Randolph interviewed Haggerty and her reportedly told Randolph: Sooner or later you are going to violate my civil rights and I am going to own you people. He also said: There is only two ways that this will all end, violently or I win a federal lawsuit.CRIME FRONTWKYZ Florida KeysPirateRadioKeyWest.com 96.7 FM 101.7 FM Keys News on the half-hour Daily (M-F) M or nings 7:30 8:30 9:30 A f t er no ons 4:30 5:30 Subscriptions 743-5551 the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum at 907 Whitehead St. in Key West as their official address.Weve seen many bills that were wrong and weve questioned them and not paid them. The state is trying to capture as much of the cost as they can and I dont blame them, but this is a harsh way of doing it, he said.Graham provided the Keynoter with numerous examples of bills from prior to 2010. Specifics on the bills are limited due to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, but they clearly show address discrepancies. Among them: AHCAbilled the county $170.74 for a patient who listed a Miami address.AHCAbilled the county $8,964 for a Lower Keys Medical Center patient whose address resembles an incomplete longitude and latitude point.AHCAbilled the county on numerous occasions for patients who listed P.O. Box numbers as their addresses.AHCAon numerous occasions issued bills for homeless people claiming county residence but no street address. Graham says the problem extends to seasonal residents who mistakenly list their Monroe address on hospital forms, as well as tourists who list the address of the hotel theyre staying at.In addition, Graham says any future dispute over billing address inaccuracies would be with the state Department of Children and Families. Your dispute is not with AHCA. They say you can, but your dispute would be with the DCF to get the address changed. I dont think for a minute the state is going to refund you, she said. According to the Senate website, SB 1988 is waiting to be heard by the Budget Committee.Cost could be $800K annuallyFrom Medicaid,1A FLYNNPatrickThomasFlynn, January12,1946-Jan1,2012.

AnotherUpperKeys business broken intoAsecond business burglary in three days at mile marker 81 in Islamorada has Monroe County Sheriffs Office detectives thinking the two breakins might be related.The first one was at Tropical Optical, an eyeglass store owned by Islamorada Village Councilman Ken Philipson. Overnight Feb. 14, someone reportedly stole more than $30,000 worth of eyewear. Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said the thief removed the lock from the door and disabled the alarm system. Then overnight on Feb. 17, someone broke into Print Source of the Florida Keys, a printing shop, and took an office computer. The thief got in the same way he got into Tropical Optical, by forcing open the front door.Detective Yunier Galvez is lead investigator in both cases. Anyone with information about the break-ins should contact him at 8533211. Callers who want to remain anonymous can contact Crime Stoppers of the Florida Keys.

Commission OKs new firehouseWith unanimous approval of the Key West City Commission Wednesday night, final design, planning approval and then construction can begin on a new fire station for Old Town Key West.Authorization for the firehouse, built in 1960 and discussed for replacement since at least 1996, has been in limbo as commissioners decided whether to rebuild City Hall at 525 Angela St. on the same property as the fire station or rehabilitate Glynn Archer Elementary School on White Street in New Town for use as administrative space. City staff and officials from the Monroe County School District have said theyre close to finalizing a deal for Glynn Archer that would give the school to the city in exchange for space for district buses on city-owned Stock Island property.Jason Bogoeff, president of Key West Firefighters Local 1424, wrote in a letter to commissioners that a new fire station is being held hostage by the city hall debate.It has been a long time coming. Afire station located on Simonton Street is a suitable location to best serve our citizens in Old Town. Commissioner Billy Wardlow, a former city fire chief, has pushed for the new station at nearly every commission meeting since his election in 2009. I think its something we finally have to move forward with, he said. This has been going on since 1996. They werent even talking about city hall back then. Get some shovels in the ground. Several members of the public urged commissioners to table the decision until the Glynn Archer deal can be finalized in case plans were to change back to building a combined new city hall/firehouse on Angela. The standalone design commissioners selected, prepared by architect Michael Ingram, calls for the station to be centrally located on the more-than-one-acre lot fronting Simonton Street. In addition to the $2.8 million fire station, the parking will be reconfigured, and a police substation and public bathrooms will go in for a total price of $4.8 million.City Manager Jim Scholl assured residents concerned about opportunities for public input about the design that theyll get numerous chances as plans move through the citys Development Review Committee, Historical Architectural Review Commission, Planning Board and, finally, City Commission.Police station, public bathrooms are includedBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYFire Station No.4 in Old Town Key West is slated to receive a 2.8 million reconstruction; now a design by architect Michael Ingram has to go through extensive vetting and permitting before construction can begin.The new station will be at 525 Angela St.in the middle of the lot facing Simonton Street;the station is now is on the corner of the lot at the intersection with Angela Street.Work now, figure costs laterAclearly displeased Monroe County School Board on Wednesday agreed to spend an additional $400,000 on construction of Horace OBryant Middle School, while reiterating a vague allusion to future legal action intended to recoup the money.Coastal Construction, the main contractor on the $38.6 million Key West project, notified the School District on Valentines Day that unsuitable soils potentially capable of undermining planned foundations of two soon-to-be-built buildings need to be removed before work could continue. That notice prompted board members to direct district staff and hired construction consultants to work with Coastal to figure a way around the problem; three days of collaboration leading up to Wednesdays emergency board meeting yielded no solutions other than the initial pony-up of the money with an expected 30-day delay in construction. Ed Davidson, a candidate for the District 3 board seat held by Duncan Mathewson, said, Boy, this has turned into a dog that needs a lot of watching.The contractors simply gambled and lost badly and the School Board and the taxpayers of the Florida Keys should not have to pay their bad gambling debts, which were now being asked to do.In business, if you mess up ... you dont get paid for those kinds of mistakes, he said.John Dick, while acknowledging the need to authorize the expenditure so as to not delay the project, criticized hired construction consultant Bill Pippinne. Because nobody did their job and nobody was checking, now you want a wide open checkbook to say youll do whatever you want and well pay, he said.The majority, $36 million, of the construction is funded through a low-interest federal stimulus loan; if the school isnt finished by June 2013, the district could face initial penalties of around $2 million.Acontinuing theme in the conversation was the common knowledge that Keys construction projects are often plagued by soil problems; in fact, the HOB site, as most longtime Conchs will note, used to be swampland.Key West City Commissioner Billy Wardlow, in generally unrelated comments at a City Commission meeting following the board meeting, mentioned the HOB situation: If they went out to Horace OBryant ... and did not know that was a swamp in that area, theyre crazy. They couldve asked any local in this town.Weve already notified our attorneys, board member Andy Griffiths said. The goal? Whats possible in recapturing any of this? Were moving forward and accountability will be worked out.The bad soil, described as non-hazardous, organic muck, will likely be excavated and dried on site before being replaced with constructionappropriate compressible fill.Dick described the smell as like low tide. City Commissioner Teri Johnston, whose District 5 includes HOB, called for a joint city/district community meeting to explain the process to neighbors; the date for that session is pending.District likely to fight HOB $400,000 billBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS PALENCABINETS, INC.CALLFOR APPOINTMENT305-852-8577SHOWROOM: M.M. 87-1/2 PLANTATION KEYCC# SP-1897CONTINUING TO SERVE THE KEYS SINCE 1978Bring your room measurements or competitor's floor plan for a free quote and receive a free CORIAN cutting board (while they last) Special LOW pricing right now for in-stock Fairmont Designs Vanities!

FKEC TAVERNIER HEADQUARTERS, BOARD ROOMPublished: 02/25/12 The Keynoter, Marathon, FL 33050 Traffic fatalities foryearup to sixWednesdays double traffic fatality in the Lower Keys brought the 2012 number of such deaths in the Keys to six, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Dayton, Ohio, residents Willard Wright, no age available, and Anne Smith, 49, died after the 2007 Yamaha they were on was slammed from behind around 11:05 a.m. at mile marker 19, at the traffic light next to Sugarloaf School. Wright was operating the bike. The driver of the 2000 Dodge that struck them on southbound U.S. 1 is Elzo Peterson, 81, of Clarks Grove, Minn. Troopers say both were southbound and that Wright stopped when the traffic light turned red. Peterson, directly behind him, failed to stop, never even reducing [his] speed. The impact tossed Wright and Smith from the motorcycle, with both landing on the pavement. Following the crash, two people, including US1 Radio News director Bill Becker, who lives right next to the crash site, performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation on the victims, but it was too late. U.S. 1 was closed until 12:42 p.m., when both lanes opened. Further details are pending investigation by the FHP.Upper KeysAlso Wednesday, in the Upper Keys, a Saturn driven by Beverly Blass of Key Largo hit the back of a dump truck that was parked on the left-hand shoulder on U.S. 1, southbound at mile marker 92 in Tavernier. The accident happened at about 4 p.m. According to the FHP, Blass was driving south in the right lane and lost control of her car. She drove into the left lane and then into the shoulder, where the truck was parked. Blass Saturn struck the back of the dump truck and then spun counter-clockwise before coming to a stop in the left lane. Monroe County Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Deputy Becky Herrin said Blass was taken by air ambulance to a Miami hospital. The extent of Blass injuries werent available. The accident slowed traffic going south near Tavernier for several hours.Two killed on motorcycle on SugarloafON U.S.1Keynoter Staff Modeling for evacuation continues MondayThe state Department of Economic Opportunity hosts the second of three Keys hurricane evacuation workshops Monday in Key West.The workshops are being held to help vet the new state Department of Emergency Management hurricane evacuation model governing the Keys. It will affect land development here for years to come. As an Area of Critical State Concern, the state oversees development in the Keys. Its guided by, among other things, the ability to evacuate tourists and residents when a serious hurricane threatens the island chain.On tap for this meeting is a discussion of NAS Key West evacuation procedures by U.S. Navy representatives Steve McBride and William Knetge, as well as a discussion of questions submitted by Key West City Planner Donald Craig and Upper Keys resident John Hammerstrom, among others.Chief Assistant County Attorney Bob Shillinger will give a presentation on what he called takings-law 101.Questions have been raised about the possibility of the Keys reaching build-out because of the evacuation model, which could lead many property owners to sue, claiming a land taking. The rate of growth ordinance, or ROGO, governs land development in Monroe.Its to give them the legal background of the consequences that would occur if the ROGO spigot gets turned off, Shillinger said. DEO spokesman James Miller said expected changes to the new model, based on input from last months meeting, have been delayed. He said the U.S. Census Bureau altered boundary lines of the evacuation zones developed for the model.

It is a direct result of the Lower Keys marsh rabbit stakeholder meetings that were held a couple years ago in which all participants readily agreed on the need for educational material. Our Animal Family is educational material presented in a friendly, positive way. The two concepts, which go hand in hand, came from interacting with cat advocates, wildlife advocates, concerned citizens and National Key Deer Refuge personnel. They are Protect your Pets and Keep Wildlife Wild. These two ideas follow up on the idea of No Homeless Pets that came up during those meetings. The artwork reflects that the image is of happy pets inside and happy wild things outside. Our Animal Family is not the brainchild of the Key deer refuge, but rather concerned volunteers who put their own time and money into this project. Our Animal Family is not organized or financed by the refuge management. Our Animal Family volunteers have even searched out funding and grants and have come up with ideas to generate funds to take care of and relocate any feral cats that are caught on refuge land in order to help find them permanent homes. Our Animal Family is designed to get people to work together for a common goal better treatment of all animals. Our Animal Family is designed to educate people to take better care of their pets and not ever abandon them. Hopefully, in addition to reducing the number of homeless kitties, this will bring an awareness that flows into a better appreciation of wild animals and their needs. To find out more, go to www.ouranimalfmaly.org Nancy Chatelaine Our Animal Family Big Pine KeyNo to IslamoradaFlorida House Bill 471, Chapter 202-337 approved by the governor on May 22, 2002, legally established the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District and set specific boundaries for its operations. Here is a verbatim quote from the bill: The district is hereby created and incorporated as an independent special district, pursuant to Chapter 189, Florida Statutes, to be known as the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District (district), in Monroe County, which special district shall be a public body corporate and politic. (2) The district boundaries shall embrace and include the territory consisting of Key Largo, including all lands east of Tavernier Creek, including Tavernier, Key Largo, and Cross Key, with the exception of Ocean Reef, all in Monroe County, Florida. Do you see the community of Islamorada listed within these boundaries? That being said, where does the district board of commissioners get the legal authority to create a huge financial obligation outside the districts legal boundaries? The $180 millionplus that has already been spent to develop our sewage collection system, much of it paid for by district businesses and residents, must be used to service legal district boundary properties and not Islamorada, which has spent zero dollars toward this endeavor. Where is the legal opinion on this matter? The district has more than $100 million in outstanding loans and debts obligated to be repaid by the 13,659 equivalent dwelling units in the system, with about 11,841 actual physical connections. Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District customers should are not be legally obligated to subsidize Islamorada residents and businesses at our expense. This relationship should never happen. Gino Angella Key LargoAttorneys will battle it out over the $400K additional costAreworking of the smoking-gun query: What did you know and when did you know it? Thats likely to be among questions to be answered after the Monroe County School District was hit with a surprise $400,000 bill for soil mitigation at the Horace OBryant School construction site in Key West. Contractors dropped the bombshell at the Feb. 14 School Board meeting. In an emergency meeting Wednesday, the board reluctantly agreed to authorize additional money. But it wants to know who missed the boat and failed to identify this problem earlier. Only after knocking down the old HOB and testing the soil did contractors find decayed organic matter, making the site unsuitable to support the weight of a concrete slab on grade. Now an acre of soil up to four feet deep has to be removed and then replaced with suitable soil. That raises an immediate question: Didnt the contractors and engineers check the original construction drawings and site plans for the school? That would have shown pilings in place and it wouldnt have turned into a big and now costly surprise. If the contractors, engineers and architects didnt investigate the site in advance, whos to blame? There will be attorneys engaged in answering those questions for sure. But a few well-known facts shed light on the magnitude of this oops. Contractors who built HOB in the early 1960s knew the ground there was mucky because the area was always known to be swampy. Thats why they built the original building on pilings. Now, the contractor is telling the board that in addition to the mucky soil, it has to remove the old pilings. Go figure. Who can forget the flooding problems that used to plague the Key West police and fire station, which lies adjacent to HOB? Certainly not city officials, who wound up paying $1.5 million in mitigation after removing mangroves that grew alongside the Riviera Canal basin fronting the property. At the time (2007), the city citing flooding emergency removed mangroves without required state permits. City engineers said mangrove roots were blocking seven outfall pipes that drained excess water from streets in the area. Hint: Mangroves grow in wet, swampy areas. One last detail so rich in irony its hard not to beg for comment: Key West City Commissioner Teri Johnston still miffed over HOBs violations of city height limit now wants the School District to schedule a meeting with the schools neighbors to discuss the latest snafu. It seems the truckloads of mucky soil to be removed have to sit and dry out before haul off to the mainland for disposal. Imagine the smell coming from those trucks of muck and you can guess how well that meeting will go. Given the controversial history on the HOB project, who knows what other stinkers have yet to emerge before this project is finished?As a kid, I brought home every creature I could catch. I kidnapped lizards, frogs, ducklings and various types of turtles. I also named every Key deer that came into our yard. I remember Nicey, Big Guy, Jackie and Dude. One day while my mom was taking my brother and me to school, we saw a buck tangled in the soccer net at Watson Field. My mom called the National Key Deer Refuge and soon enough, a pickup truck full of big guys drove up. They all jumped out and tackled the deer and cut him out of that net. I was so impressed. Ever since that day, I knew that I wanted to help the Key deer, too. Every year, the National Key Deer Refuge responds to hundreds of Key deer emergencies, most of which are the result of human impacts. So what can we all do to help Key deer? Dont feed them. Its such a simple thing. By refraining from feeding deer, it helps keep them out of harms way. Feeding deer (intentionally or not, this includes handouts, unsecured garbage, even landscaping) attracts deer to human areas like roadsides and neighborhoods, exposing them to unnatural dangers such as cars, dogs and entanglement in fences. It also encourages them to congregate in unnaturally high densities, allowing more risk of spreading diseases like lumpy jaw and Johnes disease. Also, once they associate these human places with food, they teach their offspring the same bad behaviors. When deer start dumpster diving, they begin to ingest dangerous items like plastic bags, diapers and dental floss (all stuff weve pulled out of their stomachs). They also commonly step in garbage such as metal or plastic, which becomes wrapped around their ankles or embedded in their hoofs. Examples of items weve removed include plastic milk and soda bottle rings, PVC pipes, zip ties and a metal key ring. Weve also seen deer that became tangled in ropes, bungie cords, plastic bags, Christmas lights and fishing line, all from getting into peoples garbage. Some foods have been known to cause bloat and impaction of the intestines. For example, cracked corn (which is also found in many types of bird seed) can block digestion and cause the intestines to rupture, resulting in death. We can also assume that deer that regularly eat high-calorie foods (including human food and pet food) will prefer this unnatural junk food and avoid their natural, healthy food. This, obviously, can cause nutritional complications such as poor skin, coat and bone development, and even high cholesterol, which all leaves the animal in poor condition to fight off illnesses or parasites they may contract. Dependency on supplemental feeding has been observed in many animals, not just Key deer. When an individual or neighborhood regularly provides food/water to an animal, it can become dependent on that source and will not learn how to forage on its own. In the three years I have been employed at the National Key Deer Refuge, I have seen many deer in need of help. I still name many of them, too. Theres Fred, Dizzy, Nana, Bones, Michael, Limpy, Rosebud, Bucky and Popeye. Many deer have touched my heart like Limpy, a fawn who had a metal key ring embedded in her ankle. We were able to rehabilitate and release her. And Fred, whose story doesnt have a happy ending, but he taught me the importance of having the courage to make hard decisions. My love for the Key deer and all wildlife has certainly evolved since I was a kid. Ive come to realize that interacting with them ultimately had a negative impact on them and if I really cared for these animals, I had to let them be wild.I know people who feed the deer have good intentions, but feeding them more often than not does more harm than good. In addition, it is a violation of the Endangered Species Act, making it a federal offense. If you see a sick or injured Key deer, please call our 24hour emergency hotline at 304-9628.

Protect them by not feeding them FALCON MAGLUTALETTERS TO THE EDITORBid out ferry serviceRe: The bidding for the Pigeon Key ferry service from Knights Key. After participating in the ferry bidding fiasco years ago, I find no surprise in the fact that, although being partially funded by the state Department of Transportation and Monroe County, the new contract would not go out for requests for proposals. Our company as well as one other underbid Paradise Diving the first time around and we both had clean, reliable vessels that met the RFPcriteria with the 49-passenger minimum, clean operating toilets and radar. I formally request the service go back out to bid. Paradise has had it way too easy and has not reinvested in its equipment.

They had the patients RVtowed to their home to have the necessary repairs made and went to the pound to rescue the two cats.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 8A Saturday,February 25,2012 County, schools to try sharingMonroe County Administrator Roman Gastesis hopes to consolidate some government services Keyswide through a public service alliance has its first taker.Gastesi and schools Superintendent Jesus Jara met on Feb. 17 and agreed to what Gastesi calls a pilot program coordinating some fleet maintenance at the countys Upper Keys maintenance site. Staff was going to meet this week to see about possibilities of consolidating maintenance there, he said. Jara has got one mechanic there with very simple quarters.The countys Public Works facility is on U.S. 1 at mile marker 87. Public Works Director Dent Pierce said three full-time mechanics work there.The Monroe County School District has a fleet of 140 vehicles and budgeted $2.1 million this fiscal year for fleet management, but Jara said the arrangement with Monroe involves only school buses. The district owns between 60 and 70 of them, he said.Jara had told the Keynoter prior to Gastesis November summit to discuss public partnerships that he was interested in combining fleet management efforts. He said the district employs five mechanics, four of which work fulltime in Key West. The other works at a small facility near Plantation Key School.We had a good conversation looking at options, seeing what possibilities are to look at consolidating facilities and be more efficient. The facilities in the Upper Keys are limited. We dont have a garage, he said.Gastesis summit in November discussed the possibilities for public partnerships in fleet management, health insurance and purchasing. It was attended by at least 13 Keys governments, but few embraced the concept.Economies of scale have a history of failure in the Keys, but Gastesi has long been an advocate. He was clear the pilot program is a starting point and that the district mechanic will remain a School District employee. We have to start somewhere and see how it can happen, he said. We figured wed start smaller. Gastesi said the county and district are still holding planning sessions and that no start date for the share work has been set.Pilot program for fleets in early stagesBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTYNext city manager must live in cityAt the recommendation of an advisory search committee, the Key West City Commission next month will vote whether to spend $21,500 to hire a mainland headhunting firm to help find City Manager Jim Scholls replacement. Scholl, hired in 2007, isnt seeking an extension of his $180,000 annual contract, which expires July 1. Wednesday night, the commission made an adjustment to the committeeestablished manager job description before approving the document. Specifically, commissioners amended a provision in the description that allowed whoever is hired to live within 35 miles of the city to require residency in Key West proper. Scholl, who lives on Cudjoe Key, endorsed that decision. Theres only one road in and out of town and if something happens, he said, you need to be here and its blocked, its tough. Commissioner Mark Rossi championed the amendment: I would like to make sure that the new city manager designee live within the city limits of the city of Key West; that way he or she understands the needs of the residents ... the sounds of the ambulances, the crowds, the roosters. Search committee member Shirley Freeman said shed like to hire search firm Colin Baezinger and Associates out of Palm Beach. That firm has worked with Monroe County, Marathon and Islamorada in the past to help those governments find managers. Were doing this thing right, Freeman told the commission. Were going to do a super job of vetting the applicants and potential finalists and were going to bring to you, on time, a short list of very well qualified applicants for you to choose from. We want to do a very thorough vetting of the potential candidates. To do that, we need professional help, people that do this every day and know how to do it.Headhunting firm may help with search KEY WEST Lots of ideas for new hotel unitsCity of Marathon officials have lots of feedback to consider after a Thursday workshop aimed at figuring a way to dole out 100 new hotel units.At the City Council session at the firehouse at Florida Keys Marathon Airport, roughly 30 people fired off questions and concerns about the process for nearly two hours. The meeting was attended by local hotel owners, real-estate agents and officials from other Keys governments.In January, the state Cabinet, based on a state Department of Economic Opportunity recommendation, awarded the 100 units in recognition of Marathons nearly completed citywide sewer system. The city could also borrow forward another 100 units.We get them up front and in essence, for free. We have a one-time process to think about what we would want to do with these units. They could go to hotel establishments or an RVpark, Planning Director George Garrett told those attending. Were looking at gaining your ideas about how we can fairly distribute those.Concerns over whether the city will charge for the units, and whether theyll devalue existing property owners holdings, dominated the brainstorming session led by facilitator Jennifer Powell.Powell is a retiree who lives in the Middle Keys and works part-time at the Dolphin Research Center. She handed out index cards to those attending and had them write ideas and questions down for the city to consider. Among them:Realtor and Marathon Planning Commissioner Morgan Hill suggested projects should be shovel ready and if theyre not used in 12 months, they revert back to the city for reassignment.Grassy Key resident John Whalton and others suggested the units should be given to existing resorts, not developers who may not move forward to build something.DAsign Source co-owner Amadeo DAscanio and others suggested the city should set a maximum number of allocations per property. Others suggested establishing a pointsbased system to dole them out.Turtle Hospital owner Richie Moretti owns 18 transient units and raised concerns over whether the city could devalue existing transient units which can be sold on the open market if it doesnt charge for the 100 new ones.The city and Monroe County each have a moratorium in place on new hotel units. The only way to secure them now is to purchase them from private owners. Moretti said he values his at between $50,000 and $100,000 each. It wasnt the citys intention nor do I think we can to sell these units, Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay said. I believe we have to ... make these available to mom-andpop establishments. City Manager Roger Hernstadt wrapped up the meeting by saying the city intends to start work immediately on how to ration the units.The way we see that happening is to have another session like this at a special-call Planning Commission meeting. From that point, well begin to craft some recommendations that will go through the public hearing process and the city council, he said.Now city staff tries to come up with policyBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com MARATHON Come visit our online photo galleries and submit your own at www.KeysNet.com/Photos

Story, 3B Oscar time The annual Academy Awards are Sunday night, and Key West's Tropic Cinema has the perfect party planned.Story, 3B B Sports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Dolphins run down another winAnother game and another eight stolen bases for the Marathon High School baseball team. The Dolphins rode their revamped running game and a solid start from freshman pitcher Kyle Pierce to a 5-3 win over district rival Palmer Trinity School Thursday in Miami. The Dolphins improved to 4-0 and have stolen no less than seven bases in any of those games. Coach Luis Leal said its been a point of emphasis in practice. We spend a lot of time at the first practice each week just going over base running. We work on good solid leads, he said. Leal said it doesnt hurt to have speedsters like Ian Almodovar, Carlos OFarrill, Yoniel Esquirol and Sean Roussin throughout the lineup. Almodovar had four of the Dolphins eight steals against Palmer. Theyre just natural base runners and they have a green light unless I tell them not to go, he said. Pierce has been solid this year and earned the start against the Falcons, his first at the varsity level. He responded with a complete game, allowing eight hits with three strikeouts, one walk and one hit batter. Just one of Palmers three runs was earned.For a freshman to make his first start on the road and battle against a good team ... he gave up one run and Ill take that, Leal said.Almodovar walked to open the game and promptly stole second and third, scoring on an Esquirol single. Esquirol stole second and third but was stranded after backto-back strikeouts to end the inning. Almodovar singled to start the third inning, again stealing second and third base. He scored on an OFarrill single to make it 2-0. Marathon made it 5-0 in the fifth inning on a Drew Thornbrugh threerun home run to rightcenter field. OFarrill was hit by a pitch and Esquirol followed with a first-pitch ground-rule double. Thornbrugh took the very next pitch out of the park. An error and a passed ball led to two Palmer runs in the fifth inning, and the Falcons added another in the bottom of the seventh, but Marathon held on for the win. The Dolphins were scheduled to face Island Christian School Friday, but results werent available at press time. Marathon is slated to host Westminster Christian School today at 3 p.m. at the high school. Speedy team is now 4-0 on the yearBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON BASEBALLHurricanes lose late lead to RaidersTwo last-inning homers by Gulliver Prep spoiled the Hurricanes drive for an upset Wednesday in Islamorada. The Canes (2-3) carried a 5-4 lead into the top of the seventh but Gullivers potent Raiders slammed a three-run homer and a two-run shot to grab down a 10-5 win. Our kids played their hearts out, head coach Pat Meyers said. They didnt back down from a nationally ranked team. We just need to do a better job of closing it out. Catcher Brandon Joyce drove in the first Cane run with a deep sacrifice, and started a two-run rally in the fifth with a double.Centerfielder Tyler Hudson, who made a diving catch to short-circuit a Gulliver rally in the second, walked and stole home for Coral Shoresgo-ahead run in the fifth. Tyler had a great game with seven or eight putouts, Meyers said. David Bogue doubled and scored for the Canes in the clubs six-hit attack. Gulliver ended with 11 hits, including the two devastating home runs out of the Founders Park by Joe Dunand and Chris Chinea. Gullivers top four hitters have all committed to the University of Miami, Meyers said. Coral Shores starter Danny Wallangk scattered nine hits over his five innings. Cant say enough out the job Danny did, Meyers said. Coral Shores now stands at 0-3 in District 16-4A, a tough four-team league that includes two state contenders in Key West and Gulliver, plus a surging St. Brendan team. Our coaches are very pleased with the way weve played in district, Meyers said. We were in every game. One of these days, the ball will start falling our way. Coral Shores plays two South Florida Baseball Conference foes this week, Tuesday at Ransom Everglades and home against Archbishop Curley at 7 p.m. Friday. Results of Friday nights game at Miami Country Day were pending at press time.Last-minute homers doom Coral ShoresCORAL SHORES BASEBALL By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comKey Wests hoops loss: It took us by shockFor much of the 17th game, it seemed that the dream season would go on, maybe even as far as the bright lights of the Lakeland Center. But then, wrenchingly, the magic ran out. Just before 8:30 Tuesday night, amid the cheers of the home teams fans, it began to sink in. There would be no perfect season for Key West High. No home regional final game. No more games at all. The Conchs, who came into the game 16-0, let a big lead get away and lost to ImmaculataLa Salle, 56-51, in the 4Aregional semifinal game on La Salles court. Had they won, they would have played Pines Charter at home in the regional final and would have been a victory away from going to Lakeland for the Final Four. After the game, we all went to the back of the gym and were all pretty much in tears, said senior guard Ryan Wagner, who scored 14 points. It took us by shock that it was our first defeat and that we could have gone further. The 16-4Achampion Conchs dominated early against the Royal Lions, the 15-4Achamps who came in at 14-15. It was 14-4 after the first quarter, 25-12 at the half. And when Wagner made two baskets to begin the third quarter, it was 29-12. With three minutes left in the third, a basket by JeQuan Lopez made it 36-22. But then La Salle put on an all-court pass, and the Conchs began making turnovers. The Royal Lions closed the period with a 13-3 run and, after a 3-point shot by Nicholas Santana, they were down by only 3935. When they put the press on, it really messed us up, Wagner said. We rushed too much. The fourth quarter was a nightmare for Key West. Lopez was on the bench with four fouls. And La Salle was relentless on defense and under the offensive boards, getting second and third shots. With about three minutes left, Santana hit another long shot to put La Salle ahead, 47-46, their first lead since the opening basket. The Conchs tried to hang on. Lopez came back in. It was 48-48 with 1:43 left. But then Mateo Borja scored to put La Salle ahead, 50-48. After a miss by Anthony Rice, Kevin Portillo scored to make it 52-48 with 36 seconds left. Ignoring the Royal Lionsfans screams, Lopez grabbed a rebound and scored to cut the lead to 52-50. Then, with 21 seconds left, he stole the inbounds pass and got fouled as he attempted what would have been a tying shot. He made the first free throw but missed the second. All the Conchs could do was foul and La Salle closed the game with four free throws. Thursday afternoon, Wagner was philosophical about a season under new coach Anton Lopez that had been unlike any other in 10 years. I accept it for what it is, you cant undo the past, he said. We have nothing to hang our heads about. And with that, he turned his attention to trying to get a drivers license.Immaculata ends Conchsdream hoops seasonBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASKETBALLKeynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWCoral Shores second baseman Juan Casanova grabs a throw from catcher Brandon Joyce while shortstop Eric Enriquez moves to back up to make the tag on a Gulliver Prep runner trying to steal.Gulliver rallied in the last inning for a 10-5 win.
KeysNet.com Keynoter 2B Saturday,February 25,2012Conch Millershuts down the CanesDarren Miller pitched a two-hitter and the Key West High baseball team overcame four errors to defeat Coral Shores, 7-3, Tuesday night in a District 16-4Agame at Rex Weech Field. Miller had seven strikeouts and the sophomore impressed coach Miguel Menendez. He was outstanding, Menendez said, but I almost take it for granted because I expect that from him. He has gotten stronger from last year and that is the biggest difference. The Hurricanes led, 3-2, until the Conchs scored twice in the bottom of the fifth on a double by Miller, a single by Chris Garcia and an error. Key West, which improved to 3-1, added three in the sixth on a sacrifice fly by Michael Abreu and a two-run pinch single by Andrew Freeman. Miller. Garcia. Abreu. When they arent pitching, they are playing either shortstop or third base. We talk all the time about how your best athletes are usually the guys that play short or pitch, Menendez said. We have three guys who could play short and excel, and they all pitch well. I think the preparation they get at the little-league level and honing their skills over there is a big reason why. Coral Shores helped by errors and a two-run single by Jordan Izaguirre, took a 3-0 lead behind pitcher Juan Casanova. In the end, the difference was Millers pitching. They probably played better than us overall, Menendez said of the Hurricanes. They are a tough, scrappy team that can beat you if you dont play well. The Conchs will play host to St. Brendan at 7:30 tonight. Coral Shores is now 2-3 following a 10-5 loss to Gulliver Prep Wednesday in Islamorada.Pitcher tosses two-hitter in 7-3 victoryBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorPREP BASEBALLLady Dolphins finding theirgrooveThe Marathon High School softball team has found its groove at the plate over its past two games. After scoring just one run in its opening two games, the Dolphins have exploded for 37 over the past two contests, including Thursdays 22-5 win over Palmer Trinity School in Miami. Marathon defeated rival Coral Shores High School, 15-0, on Feb. 17. Coach Andrea Murphy said shes pleased with Thursdays win, but hopes a young and rebuilding Dolphins team plays closer games. The Dolphins werent sharp defensively against the Falcons.We made three or four errors in the first inning. Awin is a win, but you feel like in games like that, unless youre focused, youre not getting any better, she said. It doesnt really help us against good competition.Eighth-grader Jordan Roney started and pitched two innings for the Dolphins, striking out four batters and allowing no hits. Both runs against her were unearned.Abi Connell pitched the third inning, allowing four hits and three earned runs. She struck out a batter and walked none.Freshman Savannah Rodamer was just a home run short of the cycle at the plate. She led the Dolphins with four RBI and was 3-for4 with a single, double and triple.Taylor Konrath and Ashley Adamo each had a home run and two RBI, while Roney and Sacha Olivera were each 2-for-3 with two RBI.

Gianni Gonzalez and Jonathan Lindback each scored three Hurricane goals and delivered an assist. It was just great team play, head coach Barney Rich said after the Canes erased Palmettos early two-goal lead. It was everybody working hard, believing in the cause and sticking to it. Cody Momo Schlaudecker, a Cane veteran making his varsity debut in goal, received the game ball for grabbing 10 saves.Kodi Roberts and Ryan Vasquez controlled 80 percent of the games faceoffs. Spencer Calvert, Bryce Lankford, Cameron Lankford and Eddie Dunn each scored once, with Jimmy Rhyne logging an assist. Palmetto exposed some of our weaknesses and showed what we need to work on. There were too many unforced errors, Rich said. But our guys showed a lot of fortitude against a really good team. Were ready to move forward.Lady CanesThe Lady Hurricanes started the lacrosse season Tuesday with a 16-5 loss to state power Pine Crest, a game Cane coach Mark Hall described as a reality check. We intentionally scheduled a very tough game to start our season so we can figure out where we actually stand, Hall said. This game has given us coaches some very specific things for us to focus on. Coral Shores got three goals from standout junior Julia Lozano and two more from senior forward Jenn Doyle against Pine Crest, a state semifinalist in 2011. Second-year goalie Elizabeth Roa grabbed 19 saves on 35 Pine Crest shots, a 54-percent save rate that Hall termed a great night in goal. Both Coral Shoresvarsity lacrosse teams played their home openers Friday in a twin bill against Coral Reef High School (results pending at press time).

Put all those words together, add some overthe-top costumes, show tunes, and you have the Broadway musical comedy Once Upon AMattress. Comedienne Carol Burnett found the story so funny she actually produced it as a 2005 TVmovie with a cast that included Burnett as the evil Queen Aggravain, Tracey Ullman as Princess Winnifred and Tom Smothers as lecherous King Sextimus. Talk about a comic trio. Burnetts special fondness for the play was long standing, since she opened in Once Upon a Mattress off Broadway back in 1959; the musical later moved to a larger venue on Broadway and earned her a Tony award nomination. Her star turn back then was playing the woebegone Princess Winnifred a role she reprised in many guises during her long run as a TV comic with multiple faces and characters to portray. To see what all the fuss is about, check out the Marathon Community Theatres production of Once Upon AMattress, which opens Mar. 1. This is a big production with a big cast.

We grow about 1,000 species, but the database on species we have grown and tried is about 10,000, he said. Its not just information we have gleaned from books.

Ladies in waiting include Marianne Benvenuti; Valerie Taylor; Suzanne Terpos; Kristeen Teague; Christine Harrison; and Sarah Brignac. Marty Dillis and Ray Anderson play the Knights and Sherry Bailey and Jennifer Powell double as maids and wenches. Jackie ONeil directs this madcap musical with help from assistant director/choreographer Cheryl Wilcox and Eric Rolfe, music director. Claudia McEwen is the producer and Bill Ross is stage manager for this mattress mob. If the names of the characters arent enough to give away the plot, just remember the childhood fairy tale about the The Princess and the Pea. The story revolves around a make believe 15th century kingdom ruled by a domineering queen, who has decreed that no one may marry until her son, Prince Dauntless the Drab, finds a worthy princess. Avariety of tests administered with an obviously preordained outcome demonstrates to court and courtiers that one princess after another is unworthy. Everyone in the kingdom is suffering from the queens edict, but especially the lovely Lady Larken, the shows promoters explain. And Lady Larken (played by Zooey Deschanel in the 2005 TV movie) has very pressing reasons for wanting to marry her love, Sir Harry. (Oh, and this is just too good to pass up. In Burnetts casting for the 2005 movie, Matthew Morrison plays Sir Harry. Youll recognize that name, he now plays Will Schuester, the teacher song and dance man in Glee, one of Fox TVs runaway hits of 2009-10). Finally, Princess Winnifred arrives for the test, woebegone and hailing from a far-away swamp kingdom. Enter the mute but lusty King Sextimus, an imperious Wizard, a comically conniving Jester and a brave Minstrel and the laughs just keep coming. Once Upon a Mattress was written by Jay Thompson, Marshall Barer and Dean Fuller with music by Mary Rodgers and lyrics by Marshall Barer. An opening night party will follow the Mar. 1 show. Performances are scheduled at 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays beginning Mar. 1 and running through Mar. 31; matinee performance is set at 3 p.m. Sunday, Mar. 25. Tickets cost $24.

Penalver, a native of Cuba, came to the United States in 1961; graduated from the University of Miami Law School and is an avid historian and preservationist. The San Carlos Institute, founded in 1871, is considered the cradle of Cubas independence movement in the 19th Century. Jose Marti, Cubas legendary poet and patriot, spoke at the Institute in 1892. Architect Francisco Centurion designed the current building, which was completed in 1924. It houses the Cuban consulate and the San Carlos School. Penalver led a statewide effort to save the San Carlos from the wrecking ball in 1985, with help from Keys historian Irving Eyster, who at the time chaired the Historic Florida Keys Preservation Board. The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, call 305-393-0940.Cuban native delivers talk on island tiesISLAMORADASan Carlos built in 1924.

Saturday,February 25,2012 7B Keynoter KeysNet.com Brutal lives, brutal choices, brilliant acting infuse movieBullhead, rated R, 128 min., opens Feb. 24 at the Tropic Cinema Bullhead is the impressive first full-length feature written and directed by Michael R. Roskam and an Oscar nominee this year for Best Foreign Film. The story was partly inspired by the 1995 killing of a Belgian government veterinarian investigating the use of illegal growth hormones in cattle. Anchored by an intensely brilliant performance by Matthias Schoenaerts, the film is part crime drama, part thriller and part character study. Roskam slowly but surely creates such a mood of almost unbearable tension and pent-up rage that the viewer will be breathlessly awaiting the explosion that must surely come. Bullhead is a powerful and absorbing film about the Flemish black-market trade in illegal beef hormones (Who knew there was such a thing as the hormone mafia underworld). Jacky Vanmarsenille (Matthias Schoenaerts) comes from a family of cattle farmers whove been pumping their cows with growth hormones for many years. Much like his cattle, Jacky is forced to take hormones to artificially prop up his manhood and, consequently, his body bulks up as well. Jacky has become something of a loner, running the family cattle business and now getting involved with criminals, including one who dredges up a traumatic and lifechanging event from Jackys youth Early in the film, a gruesome flashback shows that traumatic event and a word of caution is in order: it is one of the most difficult scenes to watch (especially for male viewers) since Ellen Page wreaked havoc on Patrick Wilson in 2005s Hard Candy. One of the present-day hoodlums was involved in that long-ago incident. Meeting him again triggers Jacky to look for revenge on those who changed his life forever To better understand the film, it may help viewers to know that Belgium is a country with an identity crisis. The country has three official languages: Dutch, French and German. Some 60 percent of the population, called Flemings, live in the north and speak Dutch, while many of the remaining 40 percent, called Walloons, live mostly in the south and speak French. German is spoken by about one percent of the population. Each linguistic group disdains the other and the country operates on a sort of language segregation that impacts everything from public libraries to government, education, political parties, television, newspapers, even sports teams Cinematographer Nicolas Karakatsanis uses light and shadow to dazzling effect. And the darkly beautiful landscapes suggest a storm, both meteorologically and physically, is imminent. When the dark clouds do open up, the audience feels the cold biting wind and rain. Karakatsanisdark tones make the fields of Flanders lovely and menacing at the same time, so that one almost expects wolves with dripping fangs to suddenly appear in the mist. Two bumbling car mechanics provide a bit of comic relief, but even those mildly humorous scenes dont distract long enough to lighten the somber mood of the film.There are strong supporting performances from Jeroen Perceval as Diederik and Barbara Sarafian as a straightforward cop, but it is Schoenaerts who is the heart of the film. He put on almost 60 pounds for the role and, whether shadow boxing with invisible opponents, pounding on the walls, screaming out at his fate, or erupting in roid rage, his Jacky is a commanding on-screen presence. If one had to find fault with Bullhead, Raf Keunens score tends to soar and swell a bit too much. And, the large cast of characters can be difficult to follow, especially since the actors portraying young Jacky and Diederik dont look anything like their older selves. One last fault: the explosive climax the audience expects is somewhat subdued, especially given all the anticipation and buildup palpable throughout the movie. These small flaws aside, Bullhead is a powerful film debut that shows director Roskam has tremendous vision and a bright future. The same can be said for Matthias Schoenaerts, who makes us miss Jacky when hes not onscreen. If the viewer can get past that excruciating flashback, the reward is a film that will resonate for a long time and has a well-deserved chance at Oscar glory.Bullheadis impressive Oscar nominee FILMBullheadnominated for Oscar as Best Foreign Film.
