LEAVE TAKINGVeteran Conch Coach Jerry Hughes resigned his football post Friday after 42 years in the coaching field.See story, 1BMAKING HISTORYMatecumbe Historical Trust has announced hiring Eyster museums first executive director. See story, 4A iPad investigation broadensAn Apple iPad purchased by Monroe County Administrator Roman Gastesi is one of at least five that former Technical Services Administrator Lisa Druckemiller allegedly stole and sold to coworkers or family members. The 31-year county employee resigned Monday after allegations came to light and both the County Attorneys Office and State Attorneys Office are investigating the incident. Gastesi has been in Tallahassee this week for the annual Florida Keys Days event, but is expected to turn over the iPad. Shillinger said we think it is one of the five unaccounted for. We recovered at least one that her family had. The family member did give it back, he said. Gastesi told the Keynoter he was shocked to learn Druckemiller may have been selling stolen goods. Im still amazed by the situation. I hope the investigation shows its not what some people think it is at this point. I guess I have to say it doesnt look good, he said. Gastesi paid Druckemiller cash for the iPad and told the Keynoter he also purchased four iPhones at different times as well. We dont have an official employee discount program like other governments do. I know both places I worked before did that. You can buy it for the same amount of money that the contract calls for, he said. Basically that was what our mindset was. Were utilizing a county contract, never thinking it was inappropriate. It all started when parttime Monroe County Fire Rescue administrative assistant Claudia Wilkerson noticed a charge for over $800 for an iPad on the departments monthly AT&Tbill. Fire Chief Jim Callahan told the Keynoter it was charged to Capt. Steve Zavalney, who never received the device. She verified the department didnt have one and alerted [Deputy County Administrator Debbie Frederick], who started an investigation. We came up with five iPads that were questionable. We went back and looked at the last three or four months and thats where we found these five, Chief Assistant County Attorney Bob Shillinger said. Assistant State Attorney Mark Wilson told the Keynoter his office would be conducting an investigation over the next week to two weeks. He said ITDepartment employees were being interviewed Friday.

Not only did the state Senate agree to include a $4.8 million line item financing the first year of a $50 million bond for Keys sewer projects in its budget Wednesday, but Gov. Rick Scott spoke favorably on the measure to a large contingent of Keys officials in Tallahassee. The state House approved a proposed $69.2 billion budget that included the $4.8 million on Feb. 9. The Senates initial $70.8 billion spending plan did not include the Keys line item.Scott is well known to be against the state taking on additional debt in a down economy, but he told officials in town for the annual Florida Keys Days event that hed consider making an exception. Scott even cracked a joke about sewers when he first took the podium to address the crowd. I guess the first thing Im supposed to talk about is wastewater treatment, he said, to cheering and applause from the group. It sounds like its going to make it through the House and Senate. As soon as the budget is finished well sit down and go through it. You guys have mandates...and if people are going to give you mandates youd like them to pay for the mandates. Ive tried to not constantly increase state debt...but I know theres projects that we need to do, Scott said. The $50 million bond is part of the so-called Mayfield grant, which the state authorized in 2009 at $200 million.Governor gives Assurances to Keys officialsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comWASTEWATER Schools Superintendent Jesus Jara congratulates Glynn Archer teacher Hilli Roberts after she was named Monroe County Teacher of the Year.The native Conch has been a district employee for 20 years.To read more,see Story, 2A .TOP TEACHER Board gives auditor expanded roleAs top administrators in the Monroe County School District react to a critical state audit, a lot is seen riding on how quickly problems are identified and corrected.In a Friday interview, Chief Financial Officer Michael Kinneer said he hesitated to offer up any defense or an excuse, but added that in the two years hes been CFO, his staff of two accountants has turned over twice. Therere issues in (the audit) that involve the finance department that need to be corrected and were working on those, he said. Meanwhile, Ken Gentile, the Monroe County School Districts internal auditor, said that his expanded role in correcting problems would not overshadow his work with the advisory Audit and Finance Committee.Based on direction given Tuesday by the School Board, Gentile will now work with Superintendent Jesus Jara to develop corrective actions aimed at fixing problems identified by the Florida Auditor Generals Office. I think, in the short term, the boards direction is to help correct problems, Gentile said, not just identify problems, a role hes previously held as internal auditor, answerable to the board.Earlier this week, board Chairman John Dick called for heads to roll because of the poor preliminary audit which basically cites the same problems state auditors found last year. That critical audit covered the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2010. Were paying top dollar, were getting terrible service and it has been going on for years and years and years, Dick said at Tuesday nights School Board meeting held in Marathon High School. Something has to be done, he continued. Somebody can say heads dont need to roll. I think rooms need to roll. I think departments need to roll. The problem is nobody knows what theyre doing, so they cant fix it. Jara said he will give the board regular updates on corrective actions related to the audit. I know weve got problems, Jara said. We have to fix them. If we need to make some decision and some staffing changes, we have some time to do that. On Feb. 24, state auditors issued a preliminary annual audit of district operations for the fiscal year that ended last June 30. They reported one material weakness the most damning finding an audit can contain and 14 other problems, including improper financial reporting, gasoline use, collections of foodservice payments and payroll processing. The material weakness, an improper annual financial report, is something the district farms out, this year paying an outside consultant $14,500 to prepare the statement. Asked about Gentiles expanded role in dealing with district finances, Kinneer said: Ive got plenty of work to do so we can all work together. He also defended himself from some of the criticism leveled during Tuesdays board meeting.Focus shifts to correcting internal problemsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comOUR SCHOOLSSee Audit,5ASee Sewers,3A

The animal also had turmors on his eyes and along the neck and flippers. Turtle Hospital staffers Jim Weidman and Marie Simpson said the tumors are caused by a virus, called Fibropapillomatosis, which affect half the turtles treated at the Marathon hospital. They reported it took six surgeries to remove all of the tumors, and then an additional year of care at the hospital to monitor for regrowth tumors that might form.

Her name is now forwarded to the state Department of Education, along with the names of the winners from the other 66 school districts in the state; in the spring, the Florida teacher of the year will be announced. Roberts, 37 and a native Conch, has been a district employee for 20 years, since she was a senior at Key West High School. She began her career as a paraprofessional, worked to earn her teaching certification at the University of Central Florida and Barry University, then started in the classroom. She says her attraction to teaching began in 11th grade, when she was helping a fellow student with an Algebra problem. I love teaching, she says. There was a girl in high school I was helping. The way I explained it really made her understand and it made me feel really good. Roberts also serves as a mentor to new teachers; helped the district develop a math curriculum and pacing guide; and developed a district-wide writing rubric for elementary students. She also pitched in at the state level, working with officials to develop and review math items on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. Superintendent Jesus Jara praised Roberts, saying she stands out as one of our best. Her classroom is full of energy and love for her children. I am very proud of her outstanding dedication and commitment to excellence. Roberts was tapped for the honor after being nominated by her colleagues and writing a composition on her teaching philosophy, culminating in a review and selection by a panel of teachers and administrators throughout the Keys.OUR SCHOOLSDistrict eyes teacher negotiationsThe Monroe County School District administration plans to move forward on negotiations with unionized teachers over performance evaluations.No dates have yet been set, but Schools Superintendent Jesus Jara said the latest favorable ruling in a union-filed grievance case sets the stage.The Public Employees Relations Commission (PERC) ruled that mandatory furlough days and other cuts imposed in Monroe County did not violate the contract, signed by the union and the school board in 2010. After that three-year contract was signed, district officials wound up cutting nearly $8 million in the 2010-11 budget cycle, canceling planned raises and mandating seven unpaid furlough days for teachers and other staff. The United Teachers of Monroe union filed a series of grievances with the superintendent and with PERC last August, citing unfair labor practices resulting from the cuts. The union argued that mandatory furlough days and other cuts violated terms of the contract. In the latest ruling, the Commission sided with the district. Jara said the decision demonstrates the district never violated the contract. Union President Holly Hummell-Gorman, in a letter sent to her union members, said: To say that this is disappointing would be an enormous understatement. Hummell-Gorman said the union will now turn its attention to how teacher performance evaluations will be integrated into the three-year contract agreement. And those talks, she added, will come in a public bargaining session, a date for which has yet to be announced.Administrators responsible for conducting teacher observations and evaluations are being trained in a method devised by national consultant Charlotte Danielson. That work focuses on four teaching domains: planning and preparation; classroom environment; instruction; and professional responsibilities.We wouldnt reopen the entire contract, HummellGorman said, just the areas that pertain to evaluation and also what sort of solutions we can collectively agree to with regard to the financial picture for 2012-13.Based on current budget projections, the districts finances for the coming fiscal year, beginning July 1, is not that different from the budgetcutting climate that brought this years cuts and the UTM grievance filings. Jara has pegged the districts upcoming budget shortfall as $5 million at least.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comOUR SCHOOLSFerry service gets fundsFerry service to historic Pigeon Key will be around until at least the summer of 2013. With commitments already in place from Monroe County and the state Department of Transportation, the Marathon City Council on Tuesday pledged to support the $250,000 per year service as well. The DOTplanned to stop funding the ferry after June 2012, but Secretary Gus Pego pledged halfor $125,000 the cost for another year. The countys portion covers 35 percent ($87,500), while the city of Marathon will pay 7.5 percent, or $18,750. Pigeon Key Foundation President Jason Koler told the council the nonprofit group responsible for the island would cover the remaining 7.5 percent. City Manager Roger Hernstadt said the city would pay $5,000 from the current fiscal years budget and that the remainder would be budgeted for 2012-13. The DOThas fully funded the ferry service since December 2007, when it closed the 2.2-mile Old Seven Mile Bridge to auto and tour-train traffic, citing safety concerns.The iconic span leading to the Pigeon Key was closed to fishing a year after and could be closed to pedestrian traffic in the future. Its a de facto park and heavily trafficked tourist attraction for Marathon.The latest DOTestimate to refurbish the bridge, built as part of the Florida East Coast Railway some 100 years ago, is $16 million. Its the only non-water access to Pigeon Key.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONKeynoter Staff

The original grant called for $50 million to be doled out in increments over four years. Rep. Ron Saunders, the House Democratic minority leader from Key West, said he was appointed to a budget conference committee between the House and Senate and lobbied for the sewer funding there. Its looking good, but its never over until its over, Saunders said. Saunders said if approved, the sewer funding would likely be doled out by the state Department of Environmental Protection. Keys wastewater authorities would then have to agree on a way to share the money. Early indications are that Monroe County and the village of Islamorada would get the bulk of it. The county has yet to begin work on its estimated $156 million Cudjoe Regional system, while Islamorada hasnt broken ground on its own estimated $110 million project. County Administrator Roman Gastesi told the Keynoter that starting those projects would create 1,100 jobs and $250 million-plus worth of construction projects. Job creation is a major Scott initiative. Saunders-and many othersare urging stakeholders to worry about divvying up the $50 million after its approved. We want to try to come back for more; we got a commitment for $200 million. Lets not argue on the size of the slice until we have the pie baked, Saunders said.

House Bill 1403 would ease the ability of a student to begin playing sports soon after changing schools, and curtail the authority of the Florida High School Athletic Association, currently the states governing body.Bill opponents say that will increase the recruiting of athletes on a high-school level.Advocates, including House sponsor Kelli Stargel of Lakeland, have said the FHSAAhas been heavyhanded and arbitrary in enforcement of its regulations and too hard on players. HB 1403 passed the House, 78-34, largely on a party vote. State Rep. Ron Saunders (D-Key West) voted against it, along with most House Democrats.Russell, a career educator and coach at Coral Shores, said, Ive talked to about 100 people about this bill and everybody has been very much against it. So its unfathomable to me how its gained this much momentum.Acompanion bill in the Florida Senate, SB 1704, has received committee approval but has not come to a full Senate vote. The Legislature is scheduled to adjourn March 9.Both bills will eliminate an existing rule that FHSAA members cannot play Florida schools that are not members of the organization.That would benefit members of the Sunshine Independent Athletic Association, a start-up organization that includes several schools that have been penalized by the FHSAAfor recruiting violations or using ineligible players.The Senate bill originally would have required all private schools to join the SIAA but that provision has been dropped.We still are not in favor of this bill at all, said Jim Roper, principal and acting athletic director at Island Christian School in Islamorada.We dont need or want to be playing teams that have a history of unscrupulous activity, Roper said. Island Christian teams have been dealing with this stuff for our entire existence, he said. Some teams have come in and beat the crud out of us, then been asked to leave [the FHSAA] because they had 21-year-old football players. Other schools assembled powerhouse teams by importing elite baseball and basketball players from overseas, he said. We do things legitimately, the way it ought to be done, Roper said. Schools should abide by the rules, not go out and start their own association. Whose agenda is this? Russell said Friday. If it benefits a bunch of schools that have a difficult time staying in compliance with the rules, that seems to me to be a big red flag, not a reason to move forward. In a conference call Monday, FHSAAExecutive Director Roger Dearing said the bills have the potential to plunge our system into chaos...It benefits those with a predisposition to cheat. The vast majority of the FHSAAs 690 member schools think this is a bad idea that could produce bedlam in interscholastic sports. Amateur Athletic Union President Louis Stout, a former Kentucky prep athletic commissioner, called it appalling that state legislators would try to weaken the FHSAAfor spurious reasons. Im shocked by what Ive heard, said Stout, based at the AAU national headquartered near Orlando. I do not understand how any legislative organization would even try to listen to something like this.PREP SPORTSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com

Ajury Wednesday convicted Hector Hernandez, 37, on one count of lewd and lascivious molestation and six counts of sexual battery by familial or custodial authority. Each count carries with it a potential life sentence without parole, according to State Attorney Dennis Wards office. Hernandez pleaded not guilty, and his attorney, assistant public defender Michael Strickland, said he will file an appeal. Hernandez is scheduled to be sentenced on April 13 at 1:30 p.m. at the Plantation Key Courthouse. Prosecutors say between January 2000 and May 2005, Hernandez molested the girls, who are now 13 and 17 years old making them babies when the alleged abuse started. The case was prosecuted by Assistant State Attorney Terri Hunnewell. Hernandez was arrested in August 2010 after the girls reported the sexual assaults to Monroe County Sheriffs Office investigators. He has been in county jail ever since on $950,000 bond. Hernandez was previously convicted in connection with another high-profile felony case in the Upper Keys the burglary spree that led to the eight-year prison sentence of Sammy Santamaria. In that case, several homes and businesses were burglarized, and at least one house was burned. Hernandez was found guilty on two burglary counts in 2008, according to court records. Santamaria is scheduled to be released from prison in 2015. Hernandez found guilty in child molestation caseCRIME HERNANDEZ Hooper wins case against school districtOn Friday it was clear that Mark Hooper, a former Monroe County School District administrator implicated in the 2009 financial scandal, would be returning to work after a two-year hiatus, but in what capacity remains to be seen. Last week Hooper won a civil contract indebtedness lawsuit against the district when Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones ruled that Hoopers public service contract with the district was violated. This took place when former Schools Superintendent Joseph Burke chose not to renew Hoopers contract in May 2010, citing budget concerns. The lawsuit rested on the claim that the only way to remove a teacher working under a three-year contract is to let the entire deal lapse, or to fire them with cause, neither of which happened in Hoopers case. Jones made a ruling from the bench last week; now schools officials are waiting for a written order that spells out terms of Hoopers regained employment. It all depends on the final order, Superintendent Jesus Jara told the Keynoter on Friday. Im still waiting on the final order, but right now, as far as I know, if he comes back itll be as a teacher. In September 2009, Hooper was demoted from his administrative post as director of career education, and reassigned as a guidance counselor at Marathon High School. Hoopers name came up repeatedly during a district probe into credit card fraud and theft by former Adult Education head Monique Acevedo, whose husband Randy was then schools superintendent. Investigators never implicated Hooper in illegal activity, but he was criticized in a report by a forensic accounting firm hired by the School Board, which said Hooper bought expensive equipment without approval and failed to turn in timely finance records, on average about 300 days too late. Randy Acevedo is serving three years probation, plus fines and community service, while his wife is two years into an eightyear state prison sentence. AKey West jury found Randy guilty of attempting to cover up more than $400,000 in theft from the district committed by his wife, who said she was stealing to feed an addiction to opiate painkillers. Hooper was hired originally in 1998 and earned about $55,000 per year when his contract wasnt renewed.Administrators await ruling on reinstatementBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comOUR SCHOOLSEyster museum gets first executiveThe Matecumbe Historical Trust announced the appointment of Debra A. Illes as Executive Director of the Irving R. Eyster Historical Museum of the Florida Keys. Anative of Cleveland, Ohio, Illes moved to Islamorada in 2008. I am excited to help bring this world class museum and cultural center to our Keys community, she said. The Museum is the culmination of local historian Irving R. Eysters dream of a history museum to preserve the history of the Florida Keys and a place that could enrich the lives of Florida Keys residents. Eyster says the museums exhibits will cover hundreds of years of Keys history, from the earliest Indians to the 20th century hurricanes that forever changed life in the Florida Keys. And it wont be limited to information about the Upper Keys, according to Eysters daughter, Barbara Edgar; instead, it will span Ocean Reef to Key West Much of the collection is founded on Eysters lifetime endeavors, research and cataloging of Keys artifacts. The 7,500 square foot Museum is currently under construction at the Islander Resort, mile marker 81, oceanside, in Islamorada. The Museum is slated for a summer opening.

He said initially the investigation would go back through two years worth of records. If theres reason to go back further, we will, he said. Are we talking about a half dozen laptops and a few cell phones or much more? We need to figure out what the IT dept purchased, and where did this equipment end up?Rumors almost immediately began to swirl around Monroe County commissioners, who are issued either a laptop or iPad on which to conduct county business.Druckemiller in November 2010 purchased an iPad for Mayor David Rice, but used Rices credit card to do so. He was billed directly by Apple. Commissioner Heather Carruthers received an iPad as well, but cut a check for the full price so it could be used for personal business as well.I have access to any emails on it so I didnt want the taxpayers to pay for it, she said. Im obviously disappointed...it casts a shadow on everybody else in the county.Commissioner George Neugent is also the recipient of an iPad for county business. He never purchased anything from Druckemiller. I know this isnt good and were going to get to the bottom of it. Im only one of five, but this is going to be placed on our table to deal with when all the facts are available and Im not going to be happy about it, he said.Casts a shadow on everybodyFrom iPad,1AHow long was it supposed to take to get to zero [audit findings] in this organization? he asked, noting that his two staff accountants have twice been replaced. It takes a tremendous amount of time to bring people up to speed to do this.If we want to argue, I will, because I think that its horrendous that people think this is all the Finance Departments problem. Its a district problem, Kinneer said.Im not trying to deflect blame but there are audit findings in here that dont relate at all to the finance department. To place it all with the finance department seems a little misguided.Its a district problemFrom Audit,1A Beach vendordebatedThe Marathon City Council agreed Tuesday to quit kicking the can down the road when it comes to renting umbrellas and other gear at Sombrero and Coco Plum beaches. For nearly a year, local real estate agent Josh Mothner has been pitching the idea for a beach-rental business for businessman Asad Kahn, and the council agreed to put the issue to a vote at some point.In an e-mail gauging support for a commercial operation at Sombrero Beach, Mothner said Kahn would look to rent umbrellas, beach chairs, floaties and other beach gear. He said Kahn offered to lease space at both beaches for $18,000 per year.Councilwoman Ginger Snead said while shes not concerned with vending at the citys beaches, she would expect the city to have a proper vetting process. She urged the council to stop delaying the matter and take a vote.If were going to put it on the agenda, we need to put it on and make a decision. Josh has wasted a lot of time if were just going to deny this, Snead said. In lobbying the council, Mothner pointed out that he worked with city staff to put forth a draft plan that addressed compensation and what type of gear could be rented at the beaches.Mothner pointed out that the citys advisory Parks and Recreation Committee unanimously recommended allowing beach vending, and he provided 25 e-mails all but one in support from a straw poll he took the day before.In addition, Mothner said hes received approval from the estate of Stanley Switlik, who donated the land for the beach when it was still in unincorporated Monroe County.Weve approached the Switlik family and estate and they were supportive as long as it didnt involve food. Were talking about basically beach gear, he said. Local attorney Richard Warner represents the Switlik family. He confirmed the Switlik family supported Mothners pitch. Theyre for these amenities being done, but to keep it pristine the way it is now. We dont want to see shacks there or big signs. That is absolutely forbidden in the Switliksmind, he said.Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay and Councilman Mike Cinque clearly supported the vending, while Mayor Pete Worthington and Councilman Rich Keating did not.Worthington noted the beach is already heavily used and that he doesnt see the need for vending beach gear. Were not Holiday Isle; were not selling $10 rumrunners. Its a local town park and I just wonder how far we need to push it, he said. Until I hear an outcry from the community ... Im not really in support of it. Cinque countered by saying that rentals would be more a convenience than anything else. They wouldnt lure additional visitors to the beach, he said.I think this is going to basically be a convenience. Its not a Ferris wheel or a bounce house down there where its an attraction, he said.The council set no date Tuesday, but instructed staff to publicly advertise the item for a future meeting and bring back a draft agreement.But nothings approved yet for SombreroBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONMan charged in homeless killingThe 45-year-old homeless Marathon man charged with killing another local homeless man on Jan. 19 pleaded not guilty to manslaughter last Tuesday. Fred Berndt was charged early last month with causing the death of 41-year-old Kenneth Anderson after the two fought near the Dions Quik Mart between 62nd and 63rd streets in Marathon. He was already in jail on a grandtheft charge when served with the manslaughter warrant. Andersons body was found on Jan. 20, across U.S. 1 in a wooded area near 62nd Street.Berndt reportedly admitted to hitting Anderson with his elbow, knocking him to the ground. He said Anderson got up and began staggering toward the wooded area across U.S. 1. Berndt said he walked with Anderson and helped him find a place to lie down.Autopsy results show Anderson died of blunt trauma to the head. Berndts Monroe County arrest record goes back to at least June 2001. At various times, hes been charged with grand theft, petty theft, burglary, corrupting moral decency, violating a domestic-violence restraining order, battery, larceny, fraud and parole violation.Berndt was jailed on other chargesBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON BERNDT

Solar, wind and ocean tides/currents fit in that clean category and deserve more of our attention. Right here in the Florida Keys, we have a wonderful living laboratory for solar power the successful solar community on No Name Key, just a bridge away from Big Pine. The islands solar lifestyle reflects the independent spirit of America. No Name Key has always been off the grid. So it is particularly disappointing to me that some backwardthinking property owners on the island are petitioning Keys Energy Services to extend electric poles and lines (power based on dirty fossil fuels) to No Name Key. I believe Keys Energy should be learning lessons about sustainability from the local folks living successfully with solar energy. Keys Energy should be looking forward, directing its efforts to expanding clean energy resources on No Name Key and beyond. Joyce Newman Big Pine KeySelective enforcementThe Florida Department of Transportation should reconsider its actions toward Harriettes Restaurant. By blocking the front parking spaces, DOTis creating a dangerous situation. Cars are unable to see the restaurant until they are right on top of it. People are parking in the median and walking across southbound traffic. There is going to be a horrible accident. There are many businesses throughout the Keys that use the state and county rights of way for parking. Why pick on one business and turn a blind eye to other businesses with the same problem? The parking at the Mandalay tiki bar is 100 percent on county property. This newly reopened restaurant was given permission to park on public land. Why cant DOT allow Harriettes to continue to use the disputed land? Harriettes is an important Key Largo stop for both locals and tourists. It would be very sad to see it have to close. Susan Irwin Key LargoClear-cutting trees, polluting rivers, poisoning water aquifers cant be the GOPplan, can it?You know times are getting desperate when the Lorax becomes a political punching bag in the GOP primary race. Former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum invoked the Disney-films strong environmental message in campaign speeches delivered in Colorado and Michigan. He dismissed climate change as a hoax and urged opening all federal lands and waters to oil and gas drilling, including the Artic National Wildlife Refuge. How about offshore oil platforms lining the Florida coast? Or, reopening drilling leases in the Florida Everglades? In case you havent noticed, the campaign for president on the GOPledger includes quite a bit of antigreen rhetoric, even finding fault with childrens book author Theodor Geisel, who you and generations of kids would better know as Dr. Seuss. Back in 1971, when Dr. Seuss wrote The Lorax, the story about a furry creature warning about the dangers of clear-cutting timberlands fit the times. Budding environmental activists were chaining themselves to old growth trees in the Pacific Northwest; the Clean Water Act passed (amended in 1972); air pollution grabbed front-page headlines, and in 1969 the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland caught on fire. In The Lorax, Dr. Seuss writes: Way back in the days when the grass was still green, and the pond was still wet and the clouds were still clean.. . His warnings about mans abuse of Mother Nature resonated. Flash forward 40-plus years, and Santorum excoriates the Endangered Species Act for stifling timbering in his home state of Pennsylvania, adding: We were put on this Earth as creatures of God to have dominion over the Earth, to use it wisely and steward it wisely, but for our benefit, not for the Earths benefit. He joins with other Republican candidates in beating the drum for more oil drilling, citing rising gas prices as proof that President Obamas energy policies have been a failure. Only, there are some uncomfortable facts for Santorum and others to ignore at their peril:At the end of last year, the United States exported more oil-based products (gasoline, diesel and heating oil) than it imported. The first time thats happened since 1949.Last year, the U.S. produced 10.4 million barrels of oil a day. Thats more than Saudi Arabia (last year).More domestic oil wells are producing now than at any time in the past dozen years.And rapid expansion in drilling for natural gas wells in the Midwest, parts of the Northeast and out west have changed the economics of the fuels industry. Maybe its time to bring back the Lorax for a remedial lesson for all those so foolish they ignore history and seem determined to irrationally repeat the excesses of past ecological disasters.

Sharon Hamilton MarathonRed Mass celebration has ancient rootsThe Red Mass celebrated Friday at St. Mary Star of the Sea continues a long tradition in the Catholic Church dating back to the year 1245. The first recorded Red Mass was celebrated in the Cathedral of Paris, bringing together the legal community and church officials for a day of dedication and celebration.Around 1310, during the reign of Edward II, the tradition began in England. It was attended at the opening of each term of Court by all members of the bench and bar. In the United States, the first Red Mass was held in 1877 at Saints Peter and Paul Church in Detroit, Mich.In New York City, Red Mass was first held in 1928 at the Church of St. Andrew, near the courthouses of Foley Square, celebrated by Cardinal Patrick Joseph Hayes.In Canada, the first Red Mass was held in Toronto in 1924 under the sponsorship of the Guild of Our Lady of Good Counsel. Archbishop Thomas Wenski, head of the Archdiocese of Miami, celebrated the Red Mass at St. Marys, which was recently designated by Pope Benedict XVI as one of 72 minor basilicas in the United States. That makes St. Marys the popes parish church in the Archdiocese of Miami, Wenski said. And official dedication ceremony for St. Marys will take place May 31.Paris held first observance in year 1245KEY WEST Keys divertapped as CNN HeroWhen the CNN story aired Friday morning, it became official: Florida Keys coral-restoration pioneer Ken Nedimyer is a CNN Hero. I had to pinch myself when it came on, Tavernier resident Nedimyer said hours later. Its amazing and awesome but I dont feel like anything special, he said. Im just trying to help the cause. Its good if it draws attention to the Keys and to the problems facing the coral reef. Nedimyer, 56, was tapped as one of 25 to 30 CNN Heroes recognized nationally throughout a year, carefully selected from about 10,000 nominations received from 100 countries, according to the network. At years end, 10 finalists selected by CNN viewers receive a $50,000 grant for their cause. Nedimyer a Keys diver since 1969 and a 34-year resident created the Coral Restoration Foundation to support his successful efforts at growing staghorn coral in underwater nurseries and replanting the corals at damaged reef sites. CRFs one-acre coral nursery in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary off Key Largo is possibly the worlds largest, Nedimyer said, with nearly 23,000 clippings that range from the length of a knuckle up to 15 inches. Coral clippings are eventually transplanted to nearby reefs to grow and become independent structures serving as habitat for a variety of marine life. The foundations nursery is 10 times larger than the others in existence, sanctuary regional director Billy Causey told CNN. Nedimyer was nominated for the CNN honor by diver Gary Yoss of Wellington, who saw the groups rescue efforts on Molasses Reef. Staff from the network began talking with Nedimyer six weeks ago for a story but were tightlipped about researching a potential CNN Hero. This is a story about hope, Nedimyer said. Its a solution that works and isnt going to cost billions of dollars. Its volunteer work the average diver can do.

The housing crisis is far from over, said Thomas, who prepared his analysis using data from the Florida Division of Financial Institutions. We are the ground zero of the housing crisis, and many people still have issues with loan modifications, foreclosures and working with banks.In all, customers lodged 1,231 complaints with the state against Florida financial institutions in 2011, down 11 percent from 2010, as the economic climate improved, the study showed.Yet in Broward, MiamiDade, Palm Beach and Monroe counties, the number of complaints rose from 149 in 2010 to 180 in 2011. Miami-Dade had the lions share, at 110 in 2011, followed by Broward, at 40 and Palm Beach at 30. Monroe had none in 2011, down from two in 2010.Not surprisingly, large banks were the targets of the greatest number of complaints: Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase and Wells Fargo, respectively. We focus every day on putting our customers at the center of everything we do, said Wells Fargo Florida spokeswoman Christina Kolbjornsen Smotryski. An index that takes into consideration the banksrelative deposit market share shows that among the top complaint receivers, the highest relative shares of complaints went to Space Coast Credit Union, followed by JPMorgan Chase, Citibank, Bank of America and BB&TBank. Among large banks, SunTrust had the lowest relative complaint index in 2011, the study showed. Overall, the largest number of complaints in 2011 concerned account balance disclosures, at 28 percent of the total. Mortgage complaints came in second, at 23 percent, compared to 30 percent of all complaints in 2010.

Assistant State Attorney Tanner Demmery told the Keynoter he objected-for a second time-to continuances requested by Miami-based defense attorney Tyrone Valentine. The latest came at a Monday docket sounding for the case. Valentine is Villalobos third attorney; the first two were Monroe County public defenders. Demmery said the hold up is that Valentine is expected to hire an accident re-constructionist. He said he doesnt want to jeopardize any verdict by pushing acting Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker to not allow him to do that. I expressed my objection and pushed the judge to put it down for a two-week status, he said. Well go back in, in under two weeks and hell let us know who the expert is and whether hes retaining them. Ill want to be able to cross-examine them.Villalobos has been scheduled numerous times to stand trial for two counts each of DUI-manslaughter and vehicular homicide, and three counts of DUI-personal injury and property damage with a prior conviction stemming from the Nov. 28, 2009, crash that killed 42-year-old Deborah Mangrum and 34year-old Christopher Jennings.The Monroe County Clerk website lists a March 12 trial date, but that wont happen. Around 9:30 p.m. that night, authorities say Villalobos1999 Ford was headed northbound and collided with a 2009 Toyota driven by Marathon resident Mercedes Diaz, 57. It happened on U.S. 1 at 23rd Street.Troopers say Villalobos car collided with the left side of Diazs car and continued forward, smashing into Mangrums car. Mangrum, a mother of four, died at the scene. Jennings died a few days later at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami. In 2006, Villalobos was convicted of drunk driving after being arrested for having a blood alcohol content of more than .20 percent. In Florida, .08 is considered legally drunk.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONElderly man passes out at wheel TuesdayAn elderly Michigan man passed out behind the wheel of his SUVand drove the vehicle into the mangroves near Annes Beach on Lower Matecumbe Key Tuesday afternoon. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Ralph Rogers Jr., 76, of Honor, Mich. said he felt light-headed before blacking out while driving south along U.S. 1 at around 4:20 p.m. His wife Gladys Rogers, 80, and two other people were passengers in the vehicle. The FHPpress release states that Rogerswhite Chevrolet Tahoe drifted off the road and onto the bike path, hitting the guardrail fence, before coming to a stop in the mangrove trees. Ralph Rogers was flown by air ambulance to Kendall Regional Hospital in MiamiDade County, and the three passengers were taken to Mariners Hospital in Tavernier. Rescue workers closed the road for about an hour to evacuate the injured, according to the FHP.

But this was no ordinary Friday. Afew hours earlier, he resigned as the Conchs football coach. Its time, its best to leave a year too early than leave a year too late, said Hughes, who is stepping down after four seasons and a 22-15 record. The Conchs were 5-4 last fall. Asked if school politics was a factor in his decision, he said, I want to make this as positive as I can. After 42 years of coaching, I want to see what life is like on the other side. Ive got to see if I can live without coaching. He said he will stay on as a drivers-education teacher. This is a big loss to the school and community, athletic director Ralph Henriquez said Friday morning. Jerry is a career coach who has tremendous respect among his colleagues. Hes a disciplinarian and thats hard to find today. He works seven days a week. In an e-mail, principal Amber Bosco wrote, Coach Hughes has helped many players get into college and the pros, and has had a stellar career. We will advertise for a new coach following our normal hiring protocol, with no predetermined coach in mind. A1968 graduate of Key West High, Hughes played football for the Conchs, and was an assistant coach for the team in the early s. A former Miami Herald coach of the year, he went on to coach in Dade County and returned again to his alma mater in 1997 and led the Conchs (who had future NFL-er Ran Carthon) to the state playoffs in and He then coached for five years at Hialeah-Miami Lakes. My goal was to get Key West back in the state playoffs, he said, although, playing in a district with Miami powerhouses, that didnt happen. Later Friday, Hughes, who would have begun spring practice without assistants Paul Volero and James Weyland, who left the program, let the memories wash over him the players he coached in Dade who went on to bigger things, like Steve Everett, who played at Michigan and was the number-one pick of the Cleveland Browns. He thought proudly about two players who became Secret Service agents. And most of all, he thought about his wife Mary Lou. His bleached-out blue eyes seemed to brighten. My greatest assistant, he said.Led team to state playoffs in 1997-98By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST COACH HUGHES Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWIsland Christian's Jade Basilius (8) dodges Marathon High School JV second baseman Baelle Pettry while stealing a base.Marathon shortstop Amanda Ban (left) backs up the throw.The Lady Eagle varsity topped the Dolphins JV, 14-4,Thursday in Islamorada.ICS (2-5) plays a tournament today,and is home at Founders Park against Redland Christian at 3:30 p.m.Tuesday.Conchs serve notice on Marathon, match, setEarly in his Tuesday afternoon No. 1 singles match, Key West High senior Justin Poon, on his way to falling behind, 5-0, to Marathons Vincenzo Massaro, hit a ball (a yellow Wilson U.S. Open) high over the side fence of the Conchssunny courts. What am I doing? Poon said to no one in particular. Paul Findlay, former Conch coach and local tennis pro, was standing on the spectator side of the fence. Hit the ball in the court its real simple, he said. When its windy, shorten your stroke. Poon began playing better, mixing lobs with hard forehand winners, and soon he was down by only 6-5. Nice, Poon, encouraged teammate Jason Correa. There you go, thats beautiful, just like that. But Massaro, a calm sophomore wielding a Babolat racket, could not be overcome. Helped by a flurry of Poon errors, he went on to win, 8-5. I was playing inconsistent, so I went back to the basics and came out with a victory, Massaro said as teammates congratulated him. Added his coach, Chris Bull: He kept plugging away and got the momentum back in his favor. Over on the gym steps, Poon sat quietly in an area cluttered with textbooks, purses, rackets, sports drinks and pineapple chunks. I have no clue, he said. I should have beaten him. Poons hitting partner in practice, Bridget Behmke, came over to join him after defeating Marina Kay Wiatt, 8-3, in No. 1 singles. It was her first victory of the season. Amonologue ensued: It was pretty messy but its a win nevertheless. I didnt play to my ability. It was the first home match and I just tried to focus on the court, not everyone around me. I hope Im getting better. Its hard to beat anyone.The resultsThe Key West boys and girls each won, 4-3.

Tournament anglers competed to catch the most inches of snook and redfish on fly. Rules mandated that only two catches of each species over the two days of fishing could be counted toward an anglers total inches. Maroney earned the title of grand champion fishing with veteran Capt. Mike Hutchinson of Homestead. He also caught and released the tournaments largest redfish, measuring 29.75 inches. Maroneys second redfish was 28.4 inches and his snook were 29.6 and 30.25 inches. Steve Stanley of St. Petersburg was named runner-up angler for scoring 100.75 inches of fish. He fished with Capt. Steve Thomas of Tavernier. Islamoradas Rick Moeller secured the largest snook at 30.4 inches while fishing with Capt. Mark Gilman, also of Islamorada. Twenty-one anglers caught 15 snook and 44 redfish during the tournaments two fishing days.Backcountry fly fishing contest endsFISHING Raiders pitching shuts down ConchsAclose game suddenly got out of hand, leaving the Key West High School baseball team to contemplate a three-game losing streak and a severe batting slump. The Conchs, with only two hits, lost to Gulliver Prep, 10-0, Wednesday afternoon in a District 164Agame in Miami. It was their first road game of the season, and they fell to 3-4 overall and 1-2 in the district. For four and a half innings, the game was a duel between Key West pitcher Darren Miller and Gullivers Gabriel Quevedo. But in the bottom of the fifth, the Raiders with a lineup that had several Division 1-bound players scored seven runs to extend a 1-0 lead to 8-0. The last four came on a grand slam by Joe Dunand. That home run ended the day for Miller, who walked three in the inning. In the sixth, the Raiders Chris Chinea, who has signed with Louisiana State, hit a two-run homer off Reny Garcia, a blow that ended the game due to the states 10-run mercy rule. Steven Wellssingle in the second was the Conchs only hit against Quevedo, who pitched five innings. Tommy Ruffennach had the other hit, a single in the sixth. Ricky Eusebio had two doubles and a triple for the Raiders (6-1, 2-0). With the defeat, the Conchsteam batting average dropped beneath .240, although thats not coach Miguel Menendezs major concern. We look at onbase percentage a lot more than the batting average, he said. What concerns me is that we are striking out a lot more than we are walking. Is the batting slump an aberration? I have seen us swing the bat better, so yes I think it is, Menendez said.

Marathon Community Park is ground zero for this annual munch-a-thon, which features local delicacies like Florida lobster, succulent stone crab claws, plump pink shrimp and smoked fish prepared according to a secret recipe. Keys chefs also serve conch in chowders, salad and fritters as well as fresh oysters, clams and fried local fish. The two-day event at mile marker 49 oceanside is sponsored by the local chapter of the Organized Fishermen of Florida and the Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce. The festival, which started as a small gathering in a local bank parking lot during the slow season, has grown to become one of the largest events held in the Keys. Last year, the two-festival tallied more than 24,000 in attendance, according to Chamber CEO Daniel Samess. And, he expects even more this year. Volunteers dedicate hundreds of hours to make it all happen, and that doesnt count the 100-plus who don chefs caps, bandannas and handy towels to staff the cookers and food prep tents. Realtor Stacie Kidwell, a chamber director and volunteer wrangler, said the community spirit on display makes all the hard work worthwhile. Its fantastic, Kidwell told the Keynoter last year. Alot of snowbirds volunteer and some plan their vacations around the festival just to do that. I have a lady who comes down every year from West Palm just for her shift in the T-shirt booth.

Saturday,March 3,2012 5B Keynoter KeysNet.com Studios celebrates 5th birthday with Mar. 3 open houseThe Studios of Key West is inviting the whole island to celebrate their fifth birthday on Saturday, Mar. 3 from 4-7 p.m. at the TSKW campus, 600 White St. Aplein air painting competition will kick off the day, with artists coming early to register between 910 a.m. Those artists will fan out across the island to paint on canvas or paper, returning with their entries at 2 p.m. All the artwork will be displayed and all must be made available for sale. D.J. Shawna will provide music during the birthday bash, which will feature a garden art show, face painting, birthday cake and punch. And, members of The Studios staff and board will be boasting about the completion of the Ashe Street Residency Cottages, which are located directly behind The Armory. This adds to facilities at Mango Tree House, providing living quarters and studio space to accommodate 40 artists from around the world, who will spend one month at residencies in the TSKWprogram. Jay Scott, executive director of The Studios, said the successful 2011 capital campaign fueled the cottage renovations. One of the things were most excited about this year are the great strides weve made in our artist residency program, Scott said. So we encourage folks to come down and meet our current artists in residence, tour our newly renovated residency cottages, and check out our expanded sculpture garden and nature center. The idea behind our residency program is simple: we want to give the gift of Key West to artists, while giving the gift of artists to Key West. We believe that by planting the seeds for a creative exchange between artists and our community, we will positively impact the culture of the island for many years to come. The celebration swings into full gear from 6-6:30 p.m. with the cutting of the birthday cake, plein air painting competition awards, and a Fabulous Art Raffle drawing. As part of the celebration, Scott said, were offering a chance to win one of six gorgeous works of art created by some of the islands most sought after artists. Raffle tickets are being sold for the chance to win a five-foot steel sculpture by John Martini Historic Armory; artist Andy Thurbers gorgeously rendered watercolor, and Debra YatesVenice Series #1, a mixed media work on canvas. In addition, Scott said, three artists have created new, hand-painted bicycles for the raffle including Rick Worth, Pam Hobbs, Sherry Sweet T. Raffle tickets cost $10; 3 for $20, and are available at the Armory. The drawing will be held at 6 p.m. at the Birthday Bash. Winners need not be present to win.

This breezy, fun musical was nominated for eight Tony Awards after its debut on Broadway. The New York Times reviewer described it this way: Spelling Bee is in essence a Chorus Line with pimples. For anyone whos watched the Scripps National Spelling Bee, the tensions on stage and in the audience are palpable. Rachel Sheinkin took those elements and wrote the original story as a book, which was late converted into a play. The music and lyrics are by composer and lyricist William Finn, who may be better known for his work on Little Miss Sunshine, March of the Falsettos, and The Sisters Rosenswieg among others. The Waterfront Playhouse production of th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is directed by Danny Weathers. Michael Fauss handles the musical direction, with choreography by Penny Leto.Weathers describes this musical as jubilant with a story about a group of quirky prepubescent overachievers who are pitted against each other in the spelling challenge of a lifetime.And the adults who are supposed to be the calming and mature influences on these kids, prove themselves just as angst-ridden as their young charges. Go see the play and learn why the word capybara has special meaning and what happens to Chip when he stumbles over the word tittup (definition: to move in a lively, capering manner, to prance). The Waterfront Playhouse cast: Gayla Morgan as Rona, Joe McMurray as Vice Principal Panch, Marc Crow as Chip, Kristen Michelle as Logainne, Justin Ahearn as Leaf, Eric Cole as William, Rebecca Green as Marcy, Jessica Miano Kruel as Olive and Kennedy Pugh as Mitch. Ultimately, Weathers adds, the nerdy and the wordy learn that winning isnt everything and that losing doesnt necessarily make you a loser. Infectious songs and a laugh-out-loud script. Previews are scheduled Mar. 6-7, with Mar. 8 opening (which includes an after-party in the Scumpture Garden sponsored by Tom and Cathy Cawley). Regular performances run Mar. 9 through Apr. 7. The Waterfront Playhouse is located at 310 Wall St., Key West. All shows start at 8 p.m. Ticket prices range from $25 to $55 and are available online.

Scott, who won Song of The Year from the Americana Music Association in 2007, lives in Nashville, Tenn. His latest album, Long Ride Home,marks his seventh studio album, released in January. Scott says he was baptized into country music at an early age.

DearEarthTalk: I read that car makers had agreed to up fuel economy standards to an average of about 55 mpg by 2025, and that specifics were due to be hammered out by the end of 2011. Did this happen and where do things stand now? Scott Ellis, Norwalk, Calif. After years of wrangling on the issue, auto companies, regulators and policymakers have finally come to terms on increased Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards for vehicles plying American roads. According to the plan as formulated by the Obama administration, automakers will double the average unadjusted fuel-economy rating of their car and light truck fleets to 54.5 mpg by 2025 from todays standard of 27 mpg. Automakers that dont meet the standards will be penalized $5.50 per 0.1 miles per gallon they fall below, multiplied by their total production for the U.S. market. Congress is likely to sign the new rules, which will start taking effect for the 2017 model year, into law this summer. According to the White House, the higher standards will likely lead to price increases of some $2,000 per vehicle to cover the costs of more expensive technology, but drivers should save an average of $6,600 in gas over the life of a vehicle. Environmental advocacy groups allied as the Go60mpg Coalition report that the new rules will create almost half a million new jobs while cutting domestic oil consumption by 1.5 million barrels or more a day by 2030. The standards are going to lead to large investments and a rebirth of the U.S. auto industry [as] global leaders in innovation, says Roland Hwang, director of the transportation program at the Natural Resources Defense Council, one of the six environmental groups (along with Environment America, the National Wildlife Federation, the Safe Climate Campaign, the Sierra Club and the Union of Concerned Scientists) behind Go60mpg. Hwang figures the new rules will generate $300 billion in extra revenue to the U.S. auto industry, not to mention lining consumers pocketbooks with an estimated $200 billion in fuel savings. This is a big deal [and] something that will keep the U.S. auto industry on the forefront of manufacturing innovation. In addition to the new CAFE standards for cars and light trucks, the White House is calling for a 20 percent cut in greenhouse gas emissions from large trucks and buses by 2018. The fuel economy bump inherent in these new truck rules will translate to some $73,000 in fuel savings for truckers over the lifetime of a new 18-wheeler and some 530 million barrels of oil saved for all large trucks and buses made between 2014 and 2018. Critics point out that no one can be sure how much new technology will add to the cost of vehicles, let alone how fluctuations in gas prices, consumer tastes and the overall economy could impact what types of cars people want to drive. While the new rules represent a gamble in regard to these variables, enough Americans see the benefits of more fuel-efficient vehicles outweighing the tradeoffs. Of course, environmentally conscious consumers can already buy more fuelefficient vehicles Priuses, Volts and Leafs are already all over American roads. And if Congress goes along with its intent to pass the new rules, greener cars will be standard and the U.S will be on the forefront of automotive innovation once again.EarthTalk is written and edited by Roddy Scheer and Doug Moss and is a registered trademark of E-The Environmental Magazine.
