Assistant State Attorney Mark Wilson on Friday said his office is awaiting a list of every International Mobile Equipment Identity, or IMEI, number from devices purchased by the county from AT&Tin the past two years.Were going to go out and lay hands on every single one of them, Wilson told the Keynoter We hope to get started on the physical inventory by the middle of next week.The county kept an inventory of the phones, iPads and other devices, but Wilson said Druckemiller was responsible for compiling it.We need to determine how many were purchased and how many can we physically put our hands on. Then we try to find out where are these phones or iPads, he said.Druckemiller, a 31-year county employee, resigned Feb. 27 after the allegations came to light.Investigators immediately discovered five iPads as stolen, including one purchased with cash by County Administrator Roman Gastesi. He says he turned the iPad, along with two iPhones, into investigators.Gastesi has said he believed he was utilizing a county contract, never thinking it was inappropriate. Absolutely not, he said Friday.

If seasonal cruisers cant anchor in Boot Key Harbor, they wont come back.Marathon has signed up to participate with Monroe County and Key West in the pilot project, City Manager Roger Hernstadt said Friday, but specific rules remain unwritten and months from being considered.I realize some people in the harbor are nervous about what might happen, Hernstadt said. But we dont want to put the cart in front of the horse. There are a lot of things that have to happen first and were about third in line. The county is driving the bus.During the winter season, the population of large sailboats and motor cruisers in the historic Marathon anchorage swells to several hundred, in the citys field of 226 rented mooring balls and in nearby anchoring areas.

On Friday, the Florida Supreme Court approved new state House districts but tossed out proposed new state Senate legislative maps, forcing lawmakers to start over in a special session later this month.That means candidates still cannot know for certain if the redrawn districts could change their plans to run for seats in the Florida Legislature.Monroe Countys state Rep. Ron Saunders, Democrat from Key West, has filed papers with the state Division of Elections to run again for his District 120 seat, but said earlier this week that he was leaning toward a run for the Florida Senates District 40 seat.With the Legislature in its final day of the regular session Friday, Saunders said the ruling makes him lean even more toward a run for the Senate instead of the House. Candidates have until June 8 to finalize their election plans by qualifying for the ballot. If SaundersSpecial session must be called for redistrictingPOLITICSPresidential search is down to nineFlorida Keys Community Colleges presidential search committee on Friday identified nine semi-finalists to replace President Larry Tyree, whose contract expires on June 30.The 11-member panel, meeting on the colleges Stock Island campus, whittled down a list of 19 candidates to the nine semi-finalists. There was an initial pool of 43 applicants when the March 1 deadline to apply hit. The goal is to bring a list of five possible presidents to the colleges Board of Trustees for interviews in April. The top nine were identified largely through numerical scores awarded by committee members.The college is advertising the position with a salary not to exceed $180,000 annually, including housing, auto and cell-phone stipends. Before he voluntarily gave up half his salary in the summer of 2011 to help mitigate a budget shortfall, Tyree earned $216,000 including the perks.He came on board Nov. 16, 2009, after thenPresident Jill LandesbergBoyle, who was widely criticized by staff for her abrasive management style, resigned in the face of firing. In March 2010, Tyree agreed to a contract extension good through this June.The nine semi-finalists are:George Bishop, vice president for academic affairs and learning support at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City.Barbara Ann Burrows, a former administrator and current associate professor of mathematics at the College of Central Florida in Ocala.John Chapin, vice president of workforce development at Tallahassee Community College in Leon County.Richard Federinko, former president of Middle Georgia College in Cochran, Ga., and until December 2010 senior vice chancellor for student services and administration at Troy University in Troy, Ala.Jonathan Gueverra, chief executive officer of the Community College of the District of Columbia in Washington D.C.43 had applied, 5 finalists to be interviewedBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comFLORIDA KEYS COMMUNITY COLLEGE Photo by GARY PURSEYThis cormorant,whose image was captured in the Everglades,looks like many of us will on Sunday,when our body clocks are a little off due to the beginning of Daylight Saving Time,which begins at 2 a.m.Sunday.For many more reader photos,go to www.KeysNet.com/photos.THE EYE HAS IT See FKCC,2ASee iPad,3ASee Maps,3ASee Anchor,3AVendors set up their tent Friday at the Marathon Community Park for the 36th annual Original Marathon Seafood Festival, taking place today and Sunday at the park, mile marker 49 oceanside.Hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.today and 11 a.m.to 5 p.m.Sunday.

So much so that after the Utility Board of Key West voted unanimously to run commercial power to the off-the-grid island, the two sides mostly older folks nearly came to blows inside the Finnigans Wake bar after the boards meeting. Cooler heads quickly prevailed, but its clear the decades-long battle over whether to electrify the island of 43 homes hasnt lost any momentum. At the meeting, there were at least two dozen speakers, plus many others. Utility Board Chairman Lou Hernandez cleared several spectators because the rooms 50-occupant capacity was exceeded. The board voted to go forward with the $650,000 line extension agreement with the No Name Keys Property Owners Association despite lingering Monroe County concerns about issuing aerial easements over conservation land and permits to connect to the poles. Both are prohibited according to county code. Board member Charles Bradford was the most outspoken in favor of approving the contract, which was on the verge of being finalized last March before the county intervened. I believe the board needs to distill all the emotional rhetoric and get down to what we do, and thats provide energy, he said. We ought to take the only appropriate action and approve this agreement. Its desired by over 70 percent of the homeowners. Currently, No Name homes are powered by solar or generators. Board member Mona Clark made the initial motion to approve the line extension. Its 2012 and I understand, Ive read all the emails and letters. I think back to the [speaker] that said they bought  years ago and things do change. Ive lived in Key West all my life and Id like to go back, but things change, she said. Pro-commercial speakers took the podium first, many saying theyve tried for up to 40 years to bring electricity to No Name Key. I need you to do the morally and legally correct thing. No Name Key residents have been requesting electricity for 43 years. Were human beings living without this service, No Name Key resident Brad Vickrey said. Most of these people dont live on No Name Key, he continued, pointing at solar advocates wearing lime-green T-shirts. They take for granted the electric service they have at their home. Commercial opponents spoke next, including Sheila Mullins who even accused Vickrey of kicking her chair when she attempted to sit down in front of him. Uninhabited islands all over the Keys could request power if you do this. All the islands in question about whether theyre habitable, you would start a landslide of people fighting for power where its not supposed to be, she said. No Name Key Property Owners Association President Kathy Brown told the Keynoter her group some 32 of the 43 homeowners on the island is not concerned that county concerns would hold the project up. The county is not an issue, so theres no need to wait for them, she said. Keys Energy is authorized to deliver utilities for anyone who wants it. [It] has the authority to bring power to all people who ask for it. Attorney Bart Smith represents Bob Reynolds, a No Name Key property owner who petitioned the state Public Service Commission to take jurisdiction over whether Keys Energy is obligated to provide electricity to No Name. He told the Utility Board Wednesday that petition would likely be dropped. The process should be simplified because the board has voted to approve the agreement. It can simply turn into a declaratory statement as to your ability to issue power, he said.Utility Board OKs commercial power to islandBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comNO NAME KEY Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYNo Name Key residents and solar advocates from up and down the Keys pack the Keys Energy Services boardroom in Key West Wednesday.The Utility Board of Key West voted unanimously to run commercial power to the off-the-grid island.

Florida Keys OceanFestival Florida Keys Ocean Festival declares for Senate District 40, that could draw several challengers seeking to take the suddenly vacated House District 120 seat. If Saunders stays in the House race for what would be his final two-year term, challengers may be less likely to run against an oftelected incumbent. Only former Key West mayor Morgan McPherson, a Republican, has filed campaign papers to run against Saunders in District 120. In an extraordinarily thorough 234-page opinion, the Supreme Court voted 70 to validate the new House maps but rejected the Senate maps 5-2. The court defined the terms of the new anti-gerrymandering directive of voters and called out the Senate for being the worst violator, ruling eight districts as invalid. We conclude that the challengers have demonstrated that the Senate plan, but not the House plan, violates the constitutional requirements, the court wrote for the majority in an opinion written by Justice Barbara Pariente. Amendments to the Florida Constitution approved by voters in 2010 establish three landmark standards that legislators must follow when they do the once-a-decade redistricting process. They prohibit lawmakers from intentionally protecting incumbents and political parties; require them to preserve minority voting rights; and order them to draw compact districts where possible. Miami Herald reporter Mary Ellen Klas and Keynoter reporter Kevin Wadlow compiled this report.Maps tossedFrom Maps,1A He said he considers his purchases a lesson learned. I had a lack of judgment there and it cost me a lot of embarrassment, he said. The investigation began after Monroe County Fire Rescue administrative assistant Claudia Wilkerson noticed a charge for more than $800 for an iPad on the departments monthly AT&T bill. Fire Chief Jim Callahan said it was charged to Capt. Steve Zavalney who never received the device. Monroe County Clerk Danny Kolhage is expected to conduct an audit of the Technical Services Department when the criminal investigation concludes.All inventory to be checkedFrom iPad,1A push for a no-anchoring buffer zone near the mooring field and designated anchorage to keep untended boats from breaking free and drifting into the mooring field. That could create a math problem of too many boats for the available space, he said. Hypothetically, that could mean the cruising community has to anchor outside the harbor. That would make it unsafe. Boot Key Harbor is one of the top three cruising destinations in the Caribbean, Manninen said. Its been a great place for the last 80 years for boaters who spend a lot of money in Marathon. Under the pilot anchoring program approved by the Florida Legislature in 2009, five waterfront communities were allowed to extend rules for popular anchoring areas previously outside their jurisdiction. Monroe County, in conjunction with Marathon and Key West, are included. All final rules must be approved by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, and will expire in July 2014 unless extended by the Legislature.Monroe County Marine Resources Director Rich Jones has been spearheading the program and is expected to present draft rules to the Monroe County Commission in June.Marathon will wait until the county settles on its umbrella ordinance to get specific about Boot Key Harbor, Hernstadt said. When that will happen, I cant fathom a guess, he said.The city of Marathon will determine what happens in Boot Key Harbor, Hernstadt said. But what if the state rejects the county ordinance? In February, the Marathon City Council approved a resolution to participate in the countys anchoring program in order to better manage anchored vessels outside of the [city] marinas mooring field and anchorage area in Boot Key Harbor.Manninen said if Marathon names all of Boot Key Harbor as a managed anchorage, the system could work. But putting large areas off limits as a buffer zone would create a worrisome cap on the allowable number of boats.Were still vetting the pros and cons of this piece of legislation, Hernstadt said. There will be meetings of the [Marathon] Near Shore Waters Committee and public hearings before the council.Boaters also can speak to the council under publiccomment sessions at regular meetings, he said. Areas of Keys waters being considered for the local mooring program include Key West Harbor, Cow Key Channel and Boca Chica Channel in the Lower Keys, and Key Largos Sunset Harbor.Amain goal of the state program is to give the pilotprogram areas authority to oversee unsound boats that appear in danger of sinking and becoming derelict vessels.Some fear being pushed outFrom Anchor,1ALosing bidderthreatens to sueThe Indiana-based engineering company that lost out on a bid to design and build Islamoradas sewer system indicated this week that it may sue the village. Amy Rubin, an attorney with the West Palm Beach law firm Fox Rothschild, which represents Reynolds Water Islamorada, sent a March 5 letter to Greg Tindle, Islamoradas wastewater program manager, stating that the selection of Veolia Water North America was improper and that the village should re-evaluate its position before any contract is entered into with Veolia. Rubin did not return an email asking her to specify if the letter is a lawsuit threat. But Nina Boniske, Islamoradas attorney, said at Thursdays Village Council meeting that if a bidding company does not agree with the ranking or awarding of a contract, its only legal option is to go to court, since the village does not have a formal protest procedure. Islamoradas evaluation committee in December scored Veolias plan to treat the villages wastewater within the four-island municipality higher than Reynoldsplan. Veolia, a multi-national company based out of France, said it could design and build the system for $98.7 million. Reynoldsprice tag was $99.6 million. The Village Council voted 5-0 Thursday to begin formal negotiations with Veolia to build the system. But the village now wants to pipe its sewage to Key Largos already-completed treatment plant at mile marker 100.5 instead of building local treatment facilities. That means the cost to design and build the system may be higher, with some estimates coming in around $103 million. Mayor Michael Reckwerdt told village staff members Thursday to work fast to reach a deal with Veolia and the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District, because the state Legislature set aside $20 million this session for Islamorada wastewater projects but only if an agreement is in place by September. Rubin said in her letter that Reynolds was improperly scored based on criteria provided by the village for its request-for-proposals process. My clients strenuously object to the evaluation because it believes both its technical and price proposal ratings were not properly considered, Rubin wrote. Rubin stopped short of saying Reynolds will sue the village, but clearly left open that possibility at the end of her letter. Hopefully this can be resolved without the need to resort to any further action, she wrote. The five councilmen did not comment much on Rubins letter, but Councilman Don Achenberg said he was surprised that Reynolds is threatening potential legal action. He recalled when Wesley Self, Reynoldsteam leader in Islamorada, stood before the council following the December decision to go with Veolia, and thanked the council for the opportunity to compete for the job. And this is what they do? Achenberg said.Sewer firm says evaluation was improperBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comISLAMORADA

(305) 743-5551Retirement ruling could be costlyNo one is sounding the alarm yet, but a Thursday decision by a Leon County judge that government employeescontributions to the Florida Retirement System are unconstitutional could cost the cash-strapped Monroe County School District $1.5 million and Monroe County government $600,000. Those are the amounts saved in fiscal year 2010-11 when Gov. Rick Scott signed into law the mandatory 3 percent contributions from some 560,000 public employees in the retirement system, from teachers to jail guards. Previously, they paid no money into their retirements. The change saved the state $1 billion and local governments an estimated $600 million.The Florida Education Association and several public unions sued, saying that changing employee contracts without collective bargaining violates the state Constitution. Leon Circuit Court Judge Jackie Fulford agreed and ordered the money paid back with interest.Wednesday, the state Board of Administration Scott, Attorney General Pam Bondi and CEO Jeff Atwater filed an appeal. The $1.5 million saved due to the 3 percent employee contributions helped close a more than $8 million budget shortfall at the School District. School Board Chairman John Dick says theres simply no money to cover the cost of repaying it. If we had to make up that money, where is it going to come from? he asked. We dont have it. He said if the ruling stands and the repayment burden falls on local governments, it would amount to firings, salary cuts and other austerity measures. Its not a win for anybody, Dick said. I dont see anything happening anytime soon, but if it does happen, itll just hurt us. Monroe County employees received what amounted to 5 percent raises this fiscal year, but with the caveat that 3 percent went toward making employees whole after the retirement contributions took effect in July. We dont know if the state is going to ask the county to pay into the fund, or a catch-up provision moving forward to fill the piggy bank back up. I think we would be diligent and put some money aside on the occasion wed need to pay the state back, County Administrator Roman Gastesi said. Gastesi said if Fulfords reversal holds, the county could reexamine the raises come budget season. It was a net 2 percent raise, but in that case it would be 5 percent and well evaluate that during the budget cycle and see how the [County Commission] wants to handle it, he said.School District would need $1.5M, county $600,000By SEAN KINNEY andRYAN McCARTHYskinney@keynoter.comIN THE COURTSFe rr o ale r ted cop s to s tabbi n gPolice officers testifying this week in the murder trial of Nicholas Ferro, 25, described a chaotic street scene leading up to and following the Oct. 31, 2009, stabbing death of Key Wester Marquese Butler in the aftermath of the annual Fantasy Fest parade. Monroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlin empanelled a six-person jury with two alternates Tuesday, followed Wednesday morning by opening arguments and witness examination throughout the week.Ferro, from Hollywood in Broward County, is charged with second-degree murder; he has been held without bond at the Monroe County Detention Center since his arrest.The defense is essentially that Ferro and his friends were waiting for a cab when Jorge Averoff fell victim to a group beating, prompting Ferros involvement and the stabbing.Key West Police Lt. David Smith, a 20-year veteran who was working at Duval and Caroline streets when the stabbing happened around 4 a.m., said he was alerted to what turned out to be Butlers stabbing by Ferro himself.As he was walking down Caroline toward Simonton Street, Smith testified Ferro told him: Theres a big fight. You need to look into it. He appeared fairly calm. From there, Smith said, something didnt seem quite right, so he asked Ferro, who stated he wasnt involved, to accompany him back to the scene.Smith said because of the large crowd and street noise, he had the volume on his police radio turned up full blast when radiotraffic about a stabbing started.As soon as that came over the radio, Smith said, Ferro blurted out some expletive and started running toward Duval Street. My fear was we wouldve lost him in the crowd.Apolice Taser eventually stopped Ferro, and while police were attending to him, Ferro friends Averoff and Rolando Reyes approached.Genetic material recovered from the handle of the blade that killed Butler, 23 at the time, matches Ferros DNA, while blood on the blade belongs to Butler, according to Florida Department of Law Enforcement analysis.Reyes and Averoff told police they saw Ferro put a knife in his pocket earlier in the evening at their Days Inn hotel room, police say. Smith testified that Reyes didnt stop talking as Ferro was being detained, repeatedly saying, They jumped us. It got to the point that he was pleading that they were somehow victims of something, Smith said Butler, a standout athlete at Key West High School, had ties to several employees of the Monroe County State Attorneys Office, so Breezye Telfair and Miesha Darrough, both assistant state attorneys in Miami-Dade County, are handling the prosecution at the assignment of then-Gov. Charlie Crist. Ferro is represented by the Miami-based father/son team of Ed ODonnell Sr. and Ed ODonnell Jr. The trial resumes Monday at the Freeman Justice Center in Key West.Hes on trial for murder in Butler deathBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comIN THE COURTS BUTLER FERRO County likely on hook for Medicaid errorsIts looking more and more like Monroe County taxpayers will be on the hook for an extra $800,000 per year in questionable Medicaid bills. Final votes in the state House and Senate were expected late Friday, but if approved, House Bill 5301 would take away the countys ability to dispute questionable Medicaid bills from the state Agency for Health Care Administration. Florida Association of Counties Communications Director Cragin Mosteller told the Keynoter Friday that the provision affecting Monroe remained in place after a Thursday budget conference committee between House and Senate members. Mosteller said the bill is on a required 24-hour cooling-off period before what was agreed upon can be voted on. That means a vote was delayed until at least 5:16 p.m. Friday, she said. The Agency for Health Care Administration administers the state Medicaid program and bills counties for their portion of a patients costs. Monroe is responsible for its own residents, but the bills often contain questionable addresses. County Social Services Director Sheryl Graham calculated the $800,000 estimate by adding up the exact number of dollars the state billed the county last year versus what it declined to pay. The implications statewide are enormous. An AHCAspreadsheet showed Monroe could be on the hook for $2.79 million worth of denied claims from 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 could see a $13.3 million per year increase, while Broward Countys increase could be almost $7 million. Monroe County provided numerous examples of questionable bills it denied in previous years, including one from a patient who repeatedly listed his home address as the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum at 907 Whitehead St. in Key West. Another bill showed a Miami address, while several others had no street address at all.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comSTATE LEGISLATURE

Thatll cost $400,000 to essentially excavate the building footprints, removing compressible muck that will have to dry on site, potentially creating a smell issue, before being trucked off and replaced with buildable material.To make up for lost time, the contractors have requested the city allow construction to run an additional hour on weekdays and an additional two hours on Saturday. That would mean construction would run from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays.In February, City Com-missioner Teri Johnston asked Superintendent Jesus Jara to host a neighborhood meeting to explain to residents the muck situation and the possibility of extended work hours. That meeting hadnt been put on the calendar Friday but with the provisional approval of the city, is expected soon.Id like to make approval of the time extension effective one day after they hold the meeting and allow that group of residents to ask questions to the construction team and district administration, Johnston told her fellow commissioners Tuesday. I dont want to delay them, but I do want the neighborhood to know whats going on.Also Tuesday, the commission extended for two years a contract, agreed to on April 1, 2011, for state lobbying services provided by law firm Gray Robinson.

I think [fishing] is a lot better. Im very happy.Snake Bight, a 9,400-acre area east of the parks mainland Flamingo Visitor Center, became a pole-or-troll zone in January 2011 as a test area to see if limited motor access could protect shallow flats in Florida Bay. Bird life in there greater than its ever been. Fishing has definitely improved, guide Dave Denkert said. We need this type of area. I think its one of the best things to happen in years. What surprised me is how the zone has improved so rapidly, said Everglades National Park Ranger Dave Fowler, who has patrolled Florida Bay waters for more than two decades. People are seeing it, Fowler said. Some amazing things are happening and it wasnt that way just a year and three months ago. In the zone, boaters can use combustion engines to travel on plane in Tin Can Channel and Snake Bight Channel, and move at slow speed through Jimmies Lake. Elsewhere, boats must travel by electric trolling motors or flats push poles to reduce prop-scarring on the shallow flats and sea grasses.More than 40 people turned out for the workshop to update the boating community on the zone, and take comments on possible changes.Acordial atmosphere prevailed at the session at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center, but several speakers urged park Superintendent Dan Kimball and staff to consider more boating channels or seasonal rule changes as water depth varies. Guides said the hours now required to reach the center of Snake Bight has caused boaters and fishermen to seek out other areas, like Garfield Bight, that once drew few visitors. Anything past a mile of poling means its really noaccess, said flats guide Benny Blanco. If boats head elsewhere, bottom damage could spread, guide Brian Gwilliams said.You can see hot spots [of propeller scars] forming at Porpoise Point and Garfield Bight, Gwilliams said, recommending a small navigation channel into Snake Bight.It might be better to tear up something small, he said. Its the difference between 150 prop scars and one thats 10 feet wide. There are runoffs where you should be able to idle in, veteran guide Billy Wert said. Some of those wheel ditches have been used for 50 years.Cant you put in some access without making it so everyone knows about it? wondered guide Kerry Wingo.Professional guides and expert boaters know how to navigate through shallow and tricky passages, park staff acknowledged. Youd do it right, Fowler said, but its the other 10 people we have to worry about. Peter Frezza of the Audubon Societys Tavernier Science Center said a small island inside Snake Bight unexpectedly has become a critical rookery for roseate spoonbills, a water bird. Roseates never nested there before but that island could be saving the spoonbill population in Florida Bay, Frezza said. Park staff noted that while there are many reports of increased fish and bird life within Snake Bight, they cannot positively credit the nomotor rules. Other ecological factors could be involved. Just as there may be collateral damage [from closed areas], there may be collateral positive benefits, Kimball said. Kimball said park staff would consider suggestions on specific areas that may be suitable for idle-speed use, and join guides out on the water to see and learn. Were going in the right direction, Kimball said. The question is how we can make it better. Opinions voiced on expanded use of pole-andtroll zones were split. Id like to see more poleand-troll zones in Florida Bay, Kipp said. It benefits anglers and guides. Blanco disagreed, I dont want to see blanket closures everywhere because its working at Snake Bight. Research is the area is expected to continue for at least two more years.Also noted:More bird life with poll and trollEVERGLADES NATIONAL PARKBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com Snake Bight,a 9,400-acre area east of the parks mainland Flamingo Visitor Center,became a pole-or-troll zone in January 2011 as a test area to see if limited motor access could protect shallow flats in Florida Bay.

Key West High School teacher Josh Clearmans 12th-grade physics class more closely resembles the laboratory of a Bill Nye-type experimental scientist with a penchant for environmentalism and sustainability than a traditional talk-and-chalk lecture space. Acolorful mural of Dr. SuessLorax character (who speaks for the trees) distinguishes the classroom, which is in the back of the campus inside an old maintenance garage with large bay doors. Behind those doors, instead of working problems involving two trains bound to intersect, unusually engaged students are busy studying data from a working wind turbine that powers the classroom; fixing an old Mercedes Benz sedan that has been converted to run off biodiesel fuel, which is processed on site by students in equipment they built; and outfitting the schools fleet of golf carts with solar panels.The latest experiment Clearman has pitched his students is whats called aquaponics: Acombination of aquaculture, or fish cultivation, and hydroponics, which is growing plants in water.The result is a small, nondescript greenhouse structure, rigged to channel water dripping from air conditioning units into a cistern, then into a fish tank containing tilapia, promising to eventually yield treats like organic mosaic beans, sugar snap peas, tomatoes and Swiss chard.The fish swim and make waste in the captured water, which is pumped up through a series of gutters to water plants potted in an organic grow-medium. The plants absorb the waste and convert it to nutrients while oxygenating the water, which passes back into the fish tank. All the water is in an endless cycle, senior Katie DAmato said of the system, which cost around $1,500 to build. As the plants grow, the fish grow with them, student Tesia Theriault said. In theory, you could sustain hundreds of plants off just one tank of fish.Theriault, one of the chief fish people, as the students refer to the aquaponics work group, wants to pursue the principles she learned in Clearmans class at the college-level. She hopes to attend the State University of New Yorks College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse, N.Y., and continue her work in sustainability and off-the-grid living.Aside from being a great option for small-scale or limited-space gardening and a source of sustainable organic produce, this is the sort of stuff youll see on long-distance space ships where traditional agriculture simply isnt an option, students said. Right now, the seven tilapias are feeding 50 plants, which have to be raised naturally, devoid of any sort of chemicals. The minute you put in an herbicide or a pesticide, senior Otto Irwin said, the fish will die. It has to be natural. Clearman said the aquaponics project was made possible in part through a donation from environmental advocacy group Last Stand. Saturday,March 10,2012 7A Keynoter KeysNet.com COUPON SALE!

However, that event has become a nightmare to those traveling on U.S. 1. On both Saturday and Sunday, traffic was at a full stop both north and south for miles. Stuck were cars, buses with people trying to get to work, motor homes, cars towing boats, people trying to get to the airports (late for their flights), even motorcycles stopped dead. This total disregard for the public wanting and needing to use U.S. 1 needs to be addressed. Better planning would definitely help. Some suggestions:Prevent the Sheriffs Office deputies from stopping traffic for every small group that wants to cross to the park after parking their cars on the oceanside. Have the officers form larger groups for crossing before stopping traffic.Route through traffic onto the oceanside Old Highway. Close U.S. 1 in front of the event area and allow it to be utilized for parking. This would prevent pedestrians from having to cross U.S. 1 and keep traffic moving on the side street.Fabricate a temporary crossover walkway to bridge U.S. 1. Have the event organizers construct a portable wooden bridge that could be brought to the site during this and other large events. This would eliminate most traffic holdups. I am sure there may be other and possibly better solutions but the event organizers really need to get their act together to prevent this traffic nightmare from reoccurring next year. Don Way Big Pine KeyZip lines a bad ideaI am writing on behalf of the board of directors and membership of Last Stand asking that the Marathon City Council not pursue a community development block grant to install a zip line at the Crane Point Museum and Nature Center. We appreciate the economic crisis that has impacted Marathon over the past few years and acknowledge the councils efforts to stimulate a recovery for the benefit of Marathon residents. However, the proposed zip line conflicts with both the citys comprehensive plan and the original purpose of Crane Point. Although zip lines are trendy and popular in some locations, this attraction is totally at odds with Crane Points mission to preserve the tropical hardwood hammock and provide passive recreation at this unique site. Last Stand continues to believe the economic assumptions built into the application are unrealistic and will not generate sufficient attendance or revenue to justify the purpose of the block grant, which is to create 21 sustainable jobs. That would leave both the city of Marathon and the Florida Keys Land & Sea Trust, which runs Crane Point, exposed to liability for not meeting the terms of the grant. Installation of the zip line would also expose both Crane Point and the city to lawsuits from anyone injured while attempting to use the zip line. We appreciate the communitys efforts to help Crane Point find the financial support necessary to insure its survival. However we urge the council to encourage alternative avenues to support Crane Point that are in accordance with both its mission and the citys comprehensive plan. Mark E. Songer President, Last Stand Key WestThanks,touristsAs a local whose livelihood depends largely upon tourism, I thank the tourists for coming down to visit.

Fred Schubach Jr. MarathonIt points out what everyones known: Islamoradas delays on sewer decision will cost taxpayers Conspiracy theories are a dime a dozen in Islamorada. However, it turns out the price tag is much higher when citizenry demands a state audit. As reported in Wednesdays Keynoter preliminary results from a long-awaited state audit of village books conducted by the Florida Auditor Generals Office turned up no smoking guns. Rumors about inflated purchasing contracts, unaccounted for money and negative fund balances were hot and heavy last year. Village critics are vigorous, loud and know how to work the media with well-orchestrated e-mail and letter-writing campaigns. Asuccessful petition drive to demand a state audit, mounted by Islamorada residents Jay and Sue Miller, gathered the necessary signatures from 20 percent of the villages registered voters back in 2011. They wound up with 1,021 signatures, which was five more than needed by state law to get an audit considered. The Joint Legislative Auditing Committee in Tallahassee then authorized the states auditor general to conduct the investigation. Auditors camped out in the village from early June to late July last year. With the cost of the state audit unknown, the Village Council on a 4-3 vote in September set aside up to $100,000 in this years budget to pay for the audit (state rules require local governments to pay for audits done by the auditor general). There have been only eight such citizen-petition audits conducted by the state since 1988. The last two cost Cedar Grove residents in Bay County about $78,000 and the city of Mexico Beach (also in Bay County) about $80,000. Heres the best part, the one major finding in Islamorada the state auditors did report: Village dillydallying over progress with sewer construction cost Islamorada more than $10 million in federal grants that would have helped reduce system expenses for village property owners. Village councils have vacillated over paying the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District to process village sewage instead of building multiple new plants in the chain of islands. This foot dragging, the audit report notes, means the village will have to either obtain other grant funding, borrow additional funds, increase the amount of wastewater assessments on village property, or some combination of those options. Duh! We could have told village policy makers that for free and have been doing so in editorials dating back to 2004. It doesnt take a genius to figure this out: Pay now or pay later. And given whats happened to sewer construction costs of late, it looks like chronic indecision will cost Islamorada taxpayers even more money.Careful with geneticsThe mission of the Florida Keys Mosquito Control district is to protect the health and safety of the citizens, visitors and tourists in Monroe County. When a failure of this mission occurs, it affects our local health and economy. For the Mosquito Control Board, hitting a home run with genetically engineered mosquitoes [that cant breed] is suspect. The board wants to move ahead on this plan with too many questions to be answered. We have to thank the new director and staff for questioning this rush to judgment by the board. To move forward, the confusion over whether a federal or state permit is needed has to be answered. The trial use of Oxitec mosquitoes abroad should come under peer review on the results. And the cost to the district has to come from somewhere. Dont get me wrong Im very excited about this new technology for mosquito control. With any new technology, it should not be rushed, but tested for results and effects. The use of sound scientific practices needs to be vetted on this method. As citizens, we are the front line of mosquito control in Monroe County. We must do our part to control freshwater sources for mosquito habitat after rainstorms. This means putting away and/or dumping collectors of standing water on our property, reporting neglected or abandoned Jacuzzis or swimming pools to Mosquito Control, and picking up rain-collecting trash on our public rights of way. Finally, we must invest in stormwater drainage systems to clear standing rainwater. If we decide to move forward of Oxitec on this type of mosquito control, we are counting on the skills and professionalism of the Mosquito Control staff. They need to work through the propaganda and company sales pitches to prove this control works for the health and safety of us all. Oliver Kofoid Key West Editors note:Representatives of Oxitec, the British biotechnology company that raises the genetically altered mosquitoes, will attend a 5:30 p.m. March 15 meeting at the Harvey Government Center at Truman Avenue and White Street in Key West hosted by Mosquito Control to explain the proposal.Band hits right noteCongratulations to the Coral Shores High School Concert Band. It received Superior ratings across the board in all categories from all judges at the Florida Bandmasters Association competitions on March 2 and has been invited to compete in the FBAstate competition. This year, the Concert Band and Marching Band both received Superiors in every category in the FBAcompetitions for concert band and earlier this school year for marching band. This is a major accomplishment for both the concert band and marching band to place at the absolute highest level possible in the adjudicated competitions by the FBA. This is a testament to the excellence and dedication of all the band students, band officers, drum major Emily Christian and band Director Robert Sax. They all rock and deserve our respect and admiration. Please take the time to say congratulations when you see them. We would not have the wonderful and successful band program we have today without the support of our generous community sponsors. Thanks to all our community band supporters, volunteers and band parents. Wayne Carter President, Upper Keys Hurricane Band Boosters The Coral Shores High band has had a successful year at Florida Bandmaster Association competitions.Shriners grateful for supportOn behalf of the Marathon Shrine Club, we would like to thank the citizens and visitors of the Middle Keys for their continuing support of our charity drive held Feb. 18. We are the guys you saw out on U.S. 1 with the funny red hats asking for donations from passers-by at the stoplight at the corner of Walgreens and Office Depot. Every penny we collected goes to the support of Shriners hospitals and especially the Transportation Fund at Mahi Temple in Miami, and is used exclusively to transport Keys and South Florida children to the Shrine Hospital in Tampa or to one of the other Shriners hospitals scattered around the country. At these hospitals, children are given completely free state-of-the-art orthopedic care and burn treatment, and the Transportation Fund ensures that underprivileged children are able to get to the hospitals for this care and follow-up treatment without any cost to them. Our local support, through generous donations, helps us continue to make sure that this perfect charity continues to serve our children today and in the coming years. Aspecial thanks to all that helped raise $8,400 that day. If you know any child under age 18 you think could benefit from orthopedic, spinal cord or burn treatment, call a Shriner at (800) 237-5055 and get the ball rolling.

For the past several months, my husband and I are sure the statements are wron g They keep showin g we are makin g a nice profit, yet we never seem to have enou g h cash to pay off all the bills. We even have to stru gg le to make payroll. Can our books be ri g ht? Does this make sense to you? Or do we need to g et a recommendation for a new bookkeeper? A ns we r : Without spendin g a lot of time to look over your books, I cant tell if they are correct or not. But what I will address is a very common misperception amon g business owners: If Im makin g a profit, I should have a lot of cash. To illustrate how wron g this can be, let me relate a story about a cash-flow projection I was workin g on last week. In this case, the lucky and hard-workin g business owner is mana g in g to increase his sales from $12 million last year to $30 million this year. Assumin g a g ross profit mar g in of 34 percent and other operatin g expenses of $6 million for the year, how much cash will this owner have in the bank at the end of the year? If your answer is $6.2 million, then youve fallen into the trap that many business owners fall into. In your case, you multiplied the $30 million of sales by 34 percent, and then subtracted the $6 million to arrive at $6.2 million. What your answer fails to take into account, however, is the businessworkin g capital requirement. Whats workin g capital? For most businesses, its the accounts receivable and inventory that your earnin g s are tied up in before the earnin g s turn into cash. In the case of my client, it turns out the increases in these items will eat up all but about $1 million of cash from the increased earnin g s. Think about it. The business more than doubles to $30 million a year, and all the owner ends up with is $1 million of cash. Of course, this forecast holds true only for the first year while business is rampin g up to the new level of sales. After Year 1, assumin g sales hold at the $30 million level, cash flow should be about equal to profits. Althou g h my client is an extreme case, this scenario is fairly typical for companies comin g out of prolon g ed recessions like the kind weve just seen. The key to sound financial mana g ement is to mana g e not only revenues and expenses, but also the differences between income and cash flow: Accounts receivable and inventory. You may want to find a g ood CPA who can be helpful in su g g estin g ways to do this and to keep track of where your cash flow is on a daily or weekly basis. Many of my clients have found that a weekly cashflow tracker is an invaluable business aid. The be g innin g of this type of tool is a listin g of accounts receivable that you expect will collect next week. From this, subtract bills that need to be paid plus re g ular weekly expenses (like payroll). The result is the discretionary cash that should be available for the week or, if the number is ne g ative, the amount of money youll have to put in from outside the business.

NEWS BRIEFSEmergency landing for plane on StretchAsmall airplane made an emergency landing south of Florida City Friday morning off the 18-Mile Stretch connecting Key Largo to the mainland. Initial reports said the plane came down in shallow water near mile marker 119 on U.S.1, and that the two or three people aboard werent unhurt. The plane is reported to be a Cirrus SR22 singleengine plane, registered to a Weston address. MiamiDade Fire Rescue was sent to the scene. Initial reports had the plane going down off Layton, but Monroe County Sheriffs Office spokeswoman said the pilot called the Miami International Airport tower to clarify his position, and that he believed he was somewhere off Homestead. Herrin said the crew of the Sheriffs Office TraumaStar air ambulance saw the plane off the Stretch as TraumaStar returned from a medical transport to the mainland, and touched down to check on the planes passengers. She said they said they were OK, and TraumaStar lifted off, returning to the Keys.

It's best not to ignore things you might think are minor.Story, 3B Green living It's all about location when deciding where to plant your vegetable garden.Story ,3B B Sports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Another pitching jewel for FinsStarter Drew Thornbrugh threw a complete game and the offense pitched in 14 hits and eight stolen bases as the Marathon High School baseball team defeated District 16 rival Somerset Academy Wednesday, 8-2. Thornbrugh tossed seven innings and allowed only five hits, three walks and two runs while striking out three batters. The last hit he gave up was to the leadoff batter in the third inning. They hit some balls that found the right spot to fall in and he settled down and mixed his pitches well and kept them off balance, coach Luis Leal said. Every starter had at least one hit against the Panthers, led by Carlos OFarrills four-hit effort. He had two triples, two RBI, two runs scored and two stolen bases. Yoniel Esquirol was 2for-5 with a triple, two RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base, while Thornbrugh was 2-for-4 with a RBI, run scored and stolen base. Sean Roussin was 2-for-3 with a stolen base and one RBI. The win put the Dolphins at 2-2 in district play (7-3 overall) and all but assured them of a No. 3 seed in next months district tournament. The thing thats important is we only play each team in the district once this year. So that was a big win, the coach said. The Dolphins wasted no time jumping out to an early lead, scoring two runs in the top of the first inning. OFarrill and Esquirol hit back-to-back triples and Thornbrugh singled Esquirol home to make it 2-0. Somerset answered back with runs in the bottom of the first and second innings and the game was tied 2-2 after four innings. Marathon added two runs in the fifth inning to take the lead for good. Ian Almodovar singled and stole second and third bases. OFarrill tripled him home and scored on a base hit by Esquirol to make it 4-2. The Dolphins added four more insurance runs in the sixth and seventh innings to put the game out of reach. The Dolphins were scheduled to host Coral Shores High School Friday, but results were not available at press time. The team is slated to host Ransom Everglades School today at 4 p.m. at the high school.Offense also comes through in 8-2 victoryBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON BASEBALLLady Canes on cruise controlCoral Shores High Schools girls lacrosse team allowed only seven goals over two matches this week, extending the Lady Canes wins streak to five. Scoring came in waves as the Lady Canes (5-1) topped Palmetto, 18-5, Thursday and Coral Reef, 19-2, Tuesday. After Coral Shores moved out to an 11-3 halftime lead over Palmetto in the home match, head coach Mark Hall emptied his bench in the second half. Junior forward Julia Lozano scored five goals, with two assists, against Palmetto. Lozano leads the Canes in scoring with 31 goals this spring. Senior forward Jenn Doyle drilled four goals Thursday, raising her season total to 16. The Cane defense, led by goalie Elizabeth Roa, was stellar, Hall said. We held Palmetto to only five goals with Elizabeth having 14 saves. Cami Lopez, the Cane field defensive leader with nine forced turnovers for the year, charged downfield to score three times in the Palmetto game. Emily Albury and Raisa Santiesteban each scored twice and Katharine Hamer and Kaitlyn OLeary each scored once. In the win over Coral Reef, Dianna Harris, Sarah Blackwell and Lozano each scored three goals. Albury, Santiesteban and Doyle each scored twice. Cheyenne Harris, Annisa Santos and Heather Doyle got in the scoring column with one goal. Coleen Welsh, a key defender with a team-high six interceptions, could be lost for the season after suffering a broken ankle against Coral Reef.

Gulliver beat the Conchs, 10-0, on Feb. 29 in Miami. The latest loss came Wednesday afternoon when Mater Academy defeated the Conchs, 9-8, in nine innings in Homestead. The defeat, which dropped the team to 37, was especially disheartening because the Conchs scored seven runs in the third inning to take a 7-2 lead. We were disappointed; we felt like we let one get away, said coach Miguel Menendez. We stressed that we played with great effort, but to win against quality teams we cant make the mistakes we are continuing to make. The Conchs, who knocked Mater out of the playoffs last season, scored those seven runs on only three hits and were aided by the wildness of Lions starter Andrew Cabezas, who, in the inning, hit two batters and walked two. Mater, which improved to 9-1, came back in the third inning with five runs against Darren Miller, the last four on a grand slam by J.C. Escarra. After the second-inning uprising, the Conchs were limited to a run and three hits the next seven innings. The run came in the sixth on a wild pitch by reliever Josh Mendez and tied the game at 8-8. Mater won the game in the bottom of the ninth on a one-out RBI single by Daniel Reyes against reliever Michael Abreu, who took over for Miller (10 hitsMater stops Key West in extra framesBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASEBALLCanes, Key West split in tennisAfitful March wind swirled above the faded Key West High tennis courts Wednesday afternoon, but the games between the Conchs and Coral Shores went on with outcomes that were expected.

Key West did not help itself in the field. First baseman Hugo Valdez and catcher Zack Hughes each made two errors, and Freeman (who played third) made one. In the first inning, Valdez dropped an infield fly, then made a wild throw, allowing two runners (including the batter) to score. Key performers for the Conchs were Abreu, who was on base four times and had four stolen bases, and Chris Garcia, who had a two-run double. Of Abreu, Menendez said, That is the kind of ability he has. He can be that disruptive. We need him to get on base more because not many guys can throw him out, and he can really jump-start our offense. Too often, though, once the offense is jump-started, the Conchs tend to fail in the clutch. We didnt get the big hit late in the game, Menendez said. And we left too many men on base.Errors costlyFrom Baseball,1B volley that was set up by a hard forehand to the baseline.

His hamstring was bothering him so he sat out the rest of the events, assistant coach David Perkins said of Georges, who signed recently to play football at the University of Arizona. The Conchs took a lot of athletes who normally dont get a chance to compete, said coach Rick Ridenour, who added that results were not a concern. Key West left before the five-team meet was completed but the Conchs later learned they finished second with 79 points, behind winner Belen, which had 208.

Better a modest home in a good location than a grander house in a bad location. I find myself uttering those words as I look at my vegetable garden. Last October, I moved my raised bed garden from a sheltered sunny spot to a more open spot thinking it would do better. There was more space so the new bed could be bigger. My husband and I diligently shoveled multiple wheelbarrow loads of dirt and compost out of the old bed. Then we dismantled the 75 bricks that formed the bed and one-by-one carried them to the new location and repositioned them with extra bricks into 3 levels to form the new bed. Since I didnt want the iguanas to attack my young seedlings, my husband built a fourfoot chicken-wire fence around the bed, supported by aluminum poles hammered into the hard rocky, ground. The fence has two door openings to give me access to the plants. This was a grandlooking raised bed garden. I added more homemade compost and organic soil to last years dirt, fixed a trellis for my bush beans and in November was ready to plant my seedlings. The bush bean seedlings were home-raised, the bell peppers, collards and broccoli were store-bought. I perform deep-root watering once a week and the rest of the time I water with a hand-held hose. So was it a good move? Not so much. The bell peppers are producing, but not like last year. The bush beans have been a big disappointment. The collards and the broccoli look like they have been frozen in time and havent increased in size in weeks. This is so different from two years ago in the previous location. The old location received four to five hours of afternoon sun. The new location is less shaded and receives morning and full afternoon sun. I also discovered during the cold, windy spells we had in January and earlier in March the new location bore the full brunt of north and west winds, which battered the plants. And because of the proximity of a brackish lake, there was a slight salty spray over the plants. Despite my best efforts and following all the suggestions I make to others, I admit it was a big mistake. At the end of this growing season, I shall beg my husband to help me move the garden back to its smaller but more productive location. The Keysvegetablegrowing season ends once the heat of the summer kicks in, which will be around May. In the meantime, I will coax some life into the broccoli, but its not looking hopeful. I see the peppers are still producing, so will help them as much I can. I supplement with produce from an organic buying club, a health food store on Big Pine Key that stocks a small but varied selection of organic produce from the Redlands area and, supermarket purchases.

Now, at the very least, its a stress headache. We asked the experts to tell us five signs that your body is telling you something. And why you should do something about it. (Namely, call your doctor.)Headache. If youre saying the words worst headache of my life, said Camelia Davtyan, clinical professor of medicine at UCLA, its time to make a call. It may be caused by an aneurysm that can burst and lead to sudden death. Or it could be bleeding on the brain, encephalitis, meningitis or some other viral or bacterial infection within the spinal fluid, said Joshua Miller, medical director at the Cleveland Clinics Strongsville Family Health Center. The headaches that worry us are ones that start suddenly, like a thunderclap, Miller said. Especially if its accompanied by a stiff neck, nausea, fever, bright lights bothering your eyes.Chest pain. Some chest pain is obvious and obviously alarming. Asqueezing pressure, elephant-sitting-on-yourchest feeling, Miller saod. You may have nausea and shortness of breath and feel your heart fluttering. But some symptoms are less noticeable. Miller said to be mindful of how your body recovers from activities youre used to performing. If you climb a flight of stairs every day and you usually feel fine, and then one day you get to the top and feel short of breath, panting, a little pressure in your chest, you shouldnt ignore that, he said.Abdominal pain. It may be attributed to digestion problems and ignored, Davtyan said, But it may be caused by appendicitis or kidney stone, which can get worse quickly if not treated. Pay particular attention to pain thats accompanied by a fever or vomiting. If theres a fever or so much pain that youre unable to eat or drink, youve got potential gall bladder diseases, appendicitis, something infectious going on, said Miller.Back pain. Who among us doesnt have a sore back, right? Sit up and take notice, however, if yours is accompanied by tingling and numbness in your feet and toes. Tingling and numbness dont happen with a simple back strain, Davtyan said. It may be a disk herniation that can progress if not treated. Back pain is probably the most common symptom we see, Miller said. As with anything, worsening of the symptoms and pain thats escalating are what you want to watch for. There could be underlying issues such as cancer, but most often its not going to be. It could be one of the disks between vertebrae has become infected. It could be a compression fracture in the back. You want to pay attention to the patients age, whether theres a family history of osteoporosis, whether theres been trauma to the back within the past few weeks.Unexpected weight loss. Few of us are going to complain if our clothes start fitting a little looser, particularly in a nation with a 26 percent obesity rate. But unintentional weight loss, Miller said, is very concerning. Its a time to get a really good history of whats been going on, review your symptoms from head to toe and get some blood work done, he said. Gastrointestinal symptoms can signal malabsorption issues such as celiac disease, where your bodys not absorbing nutrients properly. It can also signal depression or, often in the case of elderly patients, early signs of dementia. They may think they had a sandwich for lunch but, in fact, they forgot to eat. It can be one of the first signs.Dont ignore whats different about your bodyMcClatchy-TribuneTO YOUR HEALTH Nancy Arrowsmith,Toni Appell and Deborah Joseph model hats,getting ready for the San Pablo Catholic Church fashion show,set for noon Sunday at the church on 122nd Street oceanside in Marathon.Cost is $15, which includes lunch.FASHIONABLE SHOW SUNDAY
KeysNet.com Keynoter 4B Saturday,March 10,2012 Two roads diverged in a wood, and I I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. Robert Frost, Mountain Interval For those of a poetic nature, and even for those who arent, the less-traveled path presents some interesting architecture for this months Old Island home tour. One home started out next to factories at the edge of town (c.1900), another built on one lot later moved to another to make way for a school, and a shotgun cottage brings a century of good bones to be admired. The Old Island Restoration Foundations last tour of the season takes place Friday, March 16 and Saturday, March 17. Homes and their gardens are open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. And, since these are self-guided tours, houses may be viewed in any order and spread over the two days. Wandering more than a few blocks from lower Duval is the only way to truly appreciate the extent of Key West history and architecture, tour organizers said. The five houses selected for the fourth and final Old Island Restoration Foundation House Tour of the 2011-12 season form a route off that beaten path. Heres the lineup:513 William StreetAsurprising number of houses in Key West are not where they were first erected. This c. 1880 eyebrow conch was moved to this William Street lot around 1910, clearing a parcel for constructing the Harris School. Recently, the house was just the starting point for a complete renovation and expansion. The finished work extends to a second historic structure down Pinder Lane now the guest wing with a sinuous pool between. Tour organizers describe the home as an artful mix of European and American antiques (that) pays homage to the homes history, while whimsical colors update the mood. The overall effect is that of a comfortable tropical home.1315 Eliza StreetArow of vernacular cottages lined this street c.1900, housing cigar rollers and others who worked in factories at the edge of town.

The long-time winter resident, who also teaches at The Studios of Key West, is showing new works from his frequent painting trips to Europe, Mexico and Cuba. This show includes landscapes of Vinales Valley in western Cuba, along with works hes done in Nantucket and in France. Welch talks about his Key West work and the quality of light here, noting there is a special atmosphere and light in Key West as in Nantucket. Light is bouncing off the water around the islands and back to the land. Light and color are my passion and I find places like Southern France and Italy, Normandy, Mexico in the mountains to be truly beautiful. Welch, a member of the National Watercolor Society, the Artists Association of Nantucket and the CopleySociety of Boston, has spent the last decade following a nineteenth century painters path, concentrating in Normandy, northern Italy, Provence and Portugal.

Agreat room perfect for entertaining makes good use of the connecting wing and opens to a lap-worthy pool, graced by a Zen-like water feature.1617 White StreetWhat lies behind that spiked fence in Casa Marina? Just what you would imagine: an understated, luxurious house. But this late 20th Century estate, redesigned by Tom Pope, is all about outdoor entertaining. The setting is a sublimely astounding garden, designed by Raymond Jungles. The grand vista must be experienced to be appreciated especially the waterfall, a piece of Chinese alpine scenery transported to Florida. As Mark Twain may have said about the Biltmore grounds, Its what God would have done if he had money.319 Amelia StreetThis tiny shotgun cottage has stood for more than 100 years, sheltering many a fisherman. Freshly rebuilt, its now doubled in size. Tour organizers describe this as still compact, but a totally up-to-date two bedroom-two bath residence. The owners, they note, are especially proud of the green and spacesaving features added during the renovation. Adip pool and pebbled water wall accent the end of a narrow, deep lot.309 Julia StreetThe neighborhood called Bahama Village has been part of Key West since its earliest days. Generations of cigar makers, watermen, servants and laborers inhabited basic wooden cottages. Sometime in the mid-20th Century, a concrete block vernacular rambler replaced some older, wooden dwellings. Arecent renovation transformed the 309 Julia St. interior to a cheerful enclosure for the current owners artifacts from a life lived around the world.

Legendary photographer Clyde Butcher returns to KeysMost art patrons recognize Clyde Butchers work the crisp, black and white photography, the startling attention to natures detail, and vast canvases painted with silver on light-sensitive photographic paper. On Thursday, March 15, art lovers will get a chance to see his work and meet Butcher, who will be the featured artist at this months Art Walkabout in the Morada Way Art District. This is Butchers second visit to the Islamorada art district, which has grown over the past year, hosting monthly Third Thursday Walkabouts as well as Islamoradas first Fine Arts Expo in January. Using custom-made cameras, Butcher is best known for his legendary work in the heart of the Everglades, where he maintains a studio surrounded by the wilderness he has so lovingly captured on film. Hes known for wading through swamps, crossing rivers, bays and wetlands to set up his bulky equipment for what can be a single photo, capturing just the right light and timed to the seasons and time of day. He shoots in large format similar to the cameras that recorded the early images of the west. And hes been compared as the East Coast heir to the Ansel Adams photographic history. Some of his photos are up to five feet by nine feet in size. The epic scale of his work lets the viewer experience these untouched areas in a way which is almost like being there, said Daniela Woody, Morada Way Arts & Cultural Districts director of events. Butchers works will be exhibited at the Morada Way Warehouse Studio, located in the heart of the art district, mile marker 81.5, oceanside, Islamorada. The legendary landscape photographer will talk about his life and his work during the reception, which is scheduled 6-9 p.m. Proceeds from the sale of his artwork and books sold during District events, benefit the Art District programs, Woody said. In addition to Butchers work, all the galleries and restaurants in the Morada Way Art District will be open for Third Thursday, with musicians providing entertainment during the evening.
