The work on North Roosevelt Boulevard is expected to take no more than 880 days. Officials say major changes to the traffic patterns in Key West will be phased in gradually. The Florida Department of Transportation is the lead agency for the $41.5 million project, shelling out $31.8 million. The city of Key West is putting in $4.3 million for a new sewer force main and the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority is adding $5.4 million for a new water line. The construction contract was awarded to Miami-based De Moya Group Inc. last July and envisions a total rebuild of the North Roosevelt seawall bordered by a 20foot-wide landscaped promenade; four lanes of traffic each 11 feet wide; a 10-foot center turn lane; and a six-foot sidewalk on the business side of the road running from North Roosevelt and U.S. 1 to the intersection of North Roosevelt and Eisenhower Drive. Project spokesman Dean Walters said that on April 16, construction crews would start a week of milling and repaving of South Roosevelt Boulevard and then begin work on the North Roosevelt section. The next construction phase will run from Eisenhower to First Street, beginning on the waterside, changing the traffic pattern to one lane in each direction. "Then they'll be phasing into the next area, which is from First to Kennedy Drive," Walters said. "When that begins, it's going to be two lanes inbound from Kennedy through First." The overriding plan is to accommodate inbound traffic on North Roosevelt Boulevard and reroute outbound traffic to FlaglerReconstruction of Roosevelt means three years of road headachesBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTSee Roosevelt,3APop'still going strong at age 103George "Pop" Rockett was right where you'd expect to find him on a typical Thursday afternoon in the Keys, resting comfortably aboard a golf cart just off to the side of the seventh green at Sombrero Country Club. That's where he holds court every Tuesday and Thursday, hosting golf tournaments for "Pop's Group" at the Marathon club. "I've been doing it here for 30 years now. I enjoy it," he said. "When you get my age, you have to keep off your tookus and keep busy. But I'm just thankful for my mind and health that I can do it." But this past Thursday was no ordinary day and no ordinary golf tournament. Some 70 friends turned out for not only the golf but also to a celebration of the beloved Rockett's 103rd birthday. Rockett's fellow St. Peter Catholic Church parishioners on Big Pine Key held a birthday celebration for him this past Sunday while his neighbors planned another party for him Friday. "He made a sermon about my life and all. I felt very humble," Rockett said of Father Tony Mullane at St. Peter. "I just want to bring love and happiness to everyone. You can only have friends by being a friend." Rockett first visited the Keys when his late son, George Jr., had him down in 1973 and urged him to buy land on Big Pine Key. Pop did just that in 1974 on Long Beach Drive, building a house and becoming a fulltime resident by 1983. Since then, he says, he's lived a simple life. Golf, church and family are the most important things in his life. He has six grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. "I believe in the church and that's been a big part of my life. I depend on the lord for all his blessings. I'm so grateful I can give him thanks," Rockett said.

Since the City Council approved the rates in January, harbor residents have attended several council meetings to complain about the rates. That's resulted in city staff taking a second look at the fees, but no changes have since been made. An increase in the daily dinghy rate from $13 to $22, as well as establishing a 32foot minimum for boats on the hard dock, have drawn the most ire. "I feel like people here year-round [who] work here deserve some kind of break, some kind of year-round fee," harbor resident Mary Belden said. Jim Delane, another harbor resident, said he's a parttime resident but is upset about the rate changes. "I'm one of these people passing through.

This is the second time since 2010 the group has done so.This go-around, three South Florida critters are highlighted: The Florida panther (motto: "Don't go bare, panthers are rare)," leatherback turtle ("In the sack? Save the leatherback") and the dwarf seahorse ("Safe intercourse saves the dwarf seahorse"). The other three are the amphibian hellbender, western snowy plover and polar bears."The more people we crowd onto our planet, the fewer resources there are for already endangered species like panthers, sea turtles and snowy plovers," said Amy Harwood, who runs the center's human population campaign. "If we're going to deal with why plants and animals are going extinct at a staggering rate, we have to make human overpopulation part of the conversation." She added, "These condoms are a great way to get people talking and thinking about how overpopulation's hurting plants and wildlife that people care about." In 2010, the first set of six condoms comprised polar bears, rock frogs, snail darters, jaguars, burying beetles and burrowing owls. The Center for Biological Diversity expects to get thousands of volunteers to distribute the new condoms in all 50 states as part of Earth Day. In the past, the condoms have been given away at community events, libraries, college dorms, protests and bars.Keynoter StaffENVIRONMENT Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYGeorge Pop'Rockett hosts a golf tournament at Sombrero Country Club Thursday,a day after his 103rd birthday.Club members tossed him a party afterward with two birthday cakes and a table full of gifts.

The Key West Chamber of Commerce has emerged as one of the most vocal opponents of the current plans for the so-called bicycle railing; chamber Executive Vice President Virginia Panico reiterated her concerns to city commissioners on March 20. "It's not going to be something you're going to be able to see over unless you're in a high vehicle," Panico said. "As you're going by, you're not going to get to see the views." Panico, playing out a scenario in which the Florida Department of Transportation moves forward with the existing design, asked for permission to draw on the city's lobbyists in Tallahassee to facilitate a meeting with DOT Secretary Ananth Prasad "and try to see what we can do about this railing." City Manager Jim Scholl said city engineers are working with the state on alternative designs that meet safety "specifications and requirements. Should the city want to have them consider no railing at all, they would perhaps be able to consider that if the city would relieve them of liability should there be any accidents." Commissioners couldn't recall any instances in which a car, bicycle or pedestrian fell off the wall. City spokeswoman Alyson Crean said anecdotal conversations with longtime police, fire and city personnel yielded vague recollections of "three or four" incidents involving vehicles in the past 40-plus years. Before the city analyzes the indemnity issue, Scholl said "we need to find out if there's an alternative design that would be less of a block to vision and if that would be acceptable." Commissioners were unanimous in their opposition to the planned railing; Commissioner Tony Yaniz even used the opportunity to crack on Commissioner Billy Wardlow's height. "I'd rather see it with just a little low wall like it has always been," Yaniz said. "If Commissioner Wardlow were to go to that rail, he wouldn't be able to see over it. Hey, a little levity here, folks." "I'm used to it," Wardlow, a former fire chief, said. "I really don't think we need a rail out there. I think it's fine like it is." Commissioner Jimmy Weekley said visitors to an island expect to see water: "We're not Palm Beach. We're an island surrounded by water. People driving down here want to be able to enjoy that view coming into our city." If that means assuming liability from the state, "That's something we ought to consider, I think," Weekley said. City Attorney Shawn Smith said it's premature to start considering the liability issue and if the time comes, the deal would be articulated in "some type" of a memorandum of understanding.Commissioners: Roosevelt wall would kill viewBy SEANKINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTSaunders leaving the state HouseThe shape of the campaign to represent Monroe County in the Florida House changed Friday when three-term District 120 incumbent Ron Saunders formally withdrew from the race. The Democrat Saunders said he plans to seek the open Florida Senate 39 seat and will file papers with the state Division of Elections possibly as soon as Monday. "We have not had a [state] senator from the Keys for more than 40 years and it's time to change that," Saunders said Thursday. "I think I have a good chance of winning." Holly Merrill Raschein, a 10-year legislative assistant in District 120, first with Republican Ken Sorensen and now with Saunders, said Thursday she soon will leave her staff post to run for the House seat as Republican. She'll likely file this coming week. "I've already dedicated my life to public service. Running for office is the next natural step," said Raschein, 31, of Key Largo. "After spending more than 10 years learning the players and politics of the state legislative system, I feel compelled to run." The only other declared candidate for the post at press time Friday is former Key West Mayor Morgan McPherson, a Republican who lost to Saunders in 2010. Saunders has been considering a Senate run for some time, and committed to it after seeing the results of the Senate redistricting process. The Florida Legislature approved the second version of new Senate districts this past week after the Florida Supreme Court rejected the first one. Saunders said the state's southernmost Senate district which includes all of Monroe County, much of western Miami-Dade County and parts of Hendry and Collier counties "changed very little" in the rewriting of the initial plan. The district number did change, from 40 in the first reapportionment plan, then back to District 39, the current number. District 39 incumbent Sen. Larcenia Bullard (D-Miami) is stepping down after serving the eight-year term limit. "It's a pretty large Senate district so I need to get rolling on the campaign," Saunders said. "And some people were waiting for me to make a decision [between a House or Senate run] and it wasn't fair to make them wait much longer," he said. Saunders, leader of the Democratic minority in the state House for the past two legislative sessions, would have been seeking a fourth consecutive term in the House, his final under term limits.Two other candidates, both Miami-Dade Democrats and veterans of the Florida House, have declared for the District 39 Senate race. "The way then district is drawn, it would be very difficult for a Republican to win," Saunders said. "The race essentially could be decided in the August primary."He's going for Senate,Raschein goes for HousePOLITICS SAUNDERS RASCHEINBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com By the numbersFollowing are key figures associated with the massive rebuild of North Roosevelt Boulevard, scheduled to begin April 16 in Key West: Construction will take a maximum of 880 days. The total cost is $45.1 million. Installation of a business-side sidewalk is the result of acquiring rights of way across 26 parcels at a cost of $457,000. Adjacent to the seawall,plans call for a 20-footwide landscaped promenade. The rebuilt road will have four 11-foot-wide lanes and a 10-foot center turn lane. do have a bearing on whether I'll be back and the people that I know," he said. Six-year harbor resident Lee Stevens warned that rate increases are tough on the workforce community in the harbor. "Your increase has chased a lot of them out; you may chase me out," he said. Monthly mooring-ball rates increased from $275 to $300, while monthly dinghy dockage for vessels at anchor increased from $135 to $225. Those rates include one weekly sewage pumpout, use of the marina facilities and parking for one vehicle. Mooring-ball rates include dinghy dockage. Weekly mooring-ball rates increased from $105 to $110, and weekly dinghy dockage from $45 to $85. Daily mooring rates increased from $21 to $22. The monthly rate for hard-dock spots remains $19.75 per foot in season, but 50-amp power goes from $55 to $65 and 30-amp from $35 to $45. Mayor Pete Worthington, Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay and City Manager Roger Hernstadt attended the meeting on behalf of the city. Monroe County Marine Resources Administrator Rich Jones was there, as well.Hernstadt noted the rates hadn't increased at the marina for three years prior. He said it costs $950,000 per year to operate and maintain.He told the group he took three main issues away from the meeting and said he would look into each: The daily dinghy rate increasing from $13 to $22 per day. The minimum 32-foot requirement for boats on the hard dock. Whether the city could establish a discounted rate for permanent harbor residents. There are now only daily, weekly and monthly rates.City reconsiders some increasesFrom Marina,1APresidential search narrowingBy the end of business Wednesday, the board of trustees for Florida Keys Community College will have a list of three to five candidates vying to replace President Larry Tyree. Friday, the college's 11person presidential search committee interviewed nine semifinalists from an initial applicant pool of 43. Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. at the Stock Island campus board room, the committee will short-list its finalists to present to the board. Led by trustee Antoinette Martin, questions posed to the nine focused on work experience in higher education, what attracted them to FKCC and what their vision for the small college might be. Based on brief discussions between interviews, committee members indicated preferences for George Bishop and Allen Witt.Bishop, vice president for academic affairs and learning support at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City, said he was impressed by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools finding no faults during its 10-year re-accreditation of the college last year."For you all to do that is wonderful," Bishop said via a Web-based conference system. "Aplace that can do that ... confirmed in essence what Dr. Tyree said to me: You've got some terrific people working at the college that are dedicated to the success of the institution." Witt, president of Hillsborough Community College's SouthShore Campus in Ruskin, south of Tampa, identified a collegelevel hospitality program as a way to grow enrollment and provide a direct benefit to the Keys workforce, something the college attempted without success in 2008. "It occurred to me that after we look at marine things, the biggest industry in your service area is undoubtedly hospitality," he said. "I wonder if that's not a way we might look at growing enrollment." Three interviewees, Jonathan Guevara, Barbara Burrows and Krewasky Salter, mentioned growing FKCC's marine biology and technology programs into a four-year degree program to boost enrollment and complement the new 100-bed Lagoon Landing dormitory, which has occupancy of around 70 percent and is expected to chalk up a $48,000 operating loss this semester. "Florida is one of the states leading the nation in allowing selected baccalaureate programs at community colleges and FKCC is poised to do that," said Guevara, chief executive of the Community College of the District of Columbia in Washington D.C. Burrows, a former administrator and current associate professor of mathematics at the College of Central Florida in Ocala, hit some similar notes and added that her relationship with Tyree attracted her interest in the job. "You hired my No. 1 role model as an administrator. To me, that means you really respected his core values and leadership style. I share that with him." Salter, former chairman and professor of the military science and leadership department at Howard University in Washington D.C., said his organizational style, a product of military service, would help achieve the goal of adding a fouryear degree. "I'm very confident I can lead that program to successful fruition," Salter said. John Chapin, vice president of workforce development at Tallahassee Community College, identified distance learning as a method of growing enrollment not only in Key West. "I think the college has to figure out a way to be a Florida Keys community college and not be perceived as being focused more on one part of the Keys than another. Martin called Bill Kibler, vice president for student affairs at Mississippi State University in Starkville, Miss., "wooden and stiff." He discussed adding a research component to the college based on the unique environmental setting in order to "kind of put us on the map around the country. There is no other college that has the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean right there in its backyard." Richard Federinko, a three-time past community college president now retired, said his experience in marketing and with oncampus housing would be a benefit. "I feel I really know residence halls and I know what it takes me to make it safe, secure ... and a positive contributor to your everyday campus life." Jon Marshall, vice president for academic affairs at Allen County Community College in Iola, Kan., said as a community college graduate, he knows the challenges faced by students. "Like so many of our students, I know what it is to be able to work through those challenges of work, family and education and move toward doing something more. That's the crux of my work and that has influenced my administrative work as I have gone forward." The college is advertising the presidential position with a salary not to exceed $180,000 annually, including housing, auto and cellphone stipends. Before he voluntarily gave up half his salary in the summer of 2011 to help mitigate a budget shortfall, Tyree, who retires in June, earned $216,000 including the perks.Wednesday: Short list of finalistsBy SEANKINNEYskinney@keynoter.comFLORIDA KEYS COMMUNITY COLLEGE Keys leisure activities like fishing and diving. George Jr. was a fisherman and opened the first Lower Keys dive shop north of Key West in 1969. "Every day for a year my son said, We're going fishing.'And you name it, I caught it. At the end I said, That's it.'I've been golfing since I was 10 years old. It's a wonderful sport," he said. Rockett grew up in Philadelphia, where he worked as a typesetter and eventually opened his own business, Graphic Arts Composition, with two partners in 1953. He said the company set type for advertising agencies and other firms. "That was my trade. In 1976 I retired from it, but I was the third largest in Philadelphia at one time," he said. Pop says he plans to continue to host the golf tournament and be involved with his church. Longevity runs in the family genes, he says, so there's plenty of time left. "My mother lived to be 104.

Once that's complete, Walters said construction would move over to the business side of the road and follow the same phased progression. "They're doing all the waterside work first," Walters said. "When all that is done, they'll go back down to the Eisenhower area and everything will shift over to the other two lanes and they'll start on the business side." Included in the project is the addition of five crosswalks with flashing yellow lights and safety medians for pedestrians. Those will be positioned between 1st Avenue and Fourth Street, near 7th Street, between Overseas Market and Kennedy Avenue, near 17th Street and close to the intersection with U.S. 1. "This is going to be a long project and a challenge," Walters said, "but it's going to be wonderful when it's completed." He said contractor would be "attempting to bring everything in under 700 days." For the duration of the construction, the Department of Transportation is maintaining a website, www.fdotmonroe.com/keywest that allows users to register for e-mail updates about changes in work hours, traffic patterns and the like.

Key Largo 451-4788 | Key West 294-4788 | Big Pine 872-4788102481 Overseas Hwy., Key Largo, FL 33037 WWW.TMIGFLA.COM Citizens drops builderinsuranceFlorida's state-run insurer stopped covering property owners building new homes and businesses earlier this year a move that some say could slow or even halt new home and business construction in the Keys. Citizens Property Insurance Corp. announced in February that it's discontinuing issuing builders'risk coverage, but many Keys officials are just hearing about the decision now. It's expected to reduce Citizens'estimated exposure in the state by about $460 million, Citizens spokeswoman Candace Bunker said. But officials in the Keys said it could further slow growth here at a time when municipalities and the county are looking to attract new businesses to boost the struggling economy. The policies insure property and building owners against damages that happen during construction. County Commissioner Heather Carruthers, a founding member of the grassroots group Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe, said banks will not issue construction loans to property owners without builders'risk coverage. She blasted Citizens, saying the move is another step in the insurer of last resort's effort to reduce coverage in the state. "People working at Citizens have been told if they don't find ways to depopulate [reduce coverage], they'll lose their jobs," Carruthers said this week. "It's a hatchet approach." Islamorada officials heard about the decision from Councilman Ken Philipson at the March 22 Village Council meeting. Village attorney Nina Boniske called it "a major issue," especially as the Islamorada Chamber of Commerce plans to build a new visitors center at Founders Park this summear, and two major grocery chains are considering adding locations on Lower and Upper Matecumbe keys. Because the Keys are considered a high-risk area for insurers to do business, Citizens is the only option for most home and business owners needing to buy property insurance. Sam Miller, executive vice president of the Florida Insurance Council trade group, said builders in Florida have other options companies in the so-called surplus line industry but policies sold by those firms can be much more expensive. Philipson and Carruthers said those policies are likely out of the price range of many Keys property owners. "Construction costs are already higher down here," Philipson said. He added that major chain businesses like CVS, Walgreens and WinnDixie are going to be less inclined to come to the Keys if they have to pay more for builders'risk insurance. "When you build a commercial business, you want return on your investment. With chains, it's about location, location, location. They're not going to come here when you add excess charges," Philipson said. Miller said the move was necessary for Citizens to prepare in case it needs to pay billions of dollars in claims in the aftermath of a major hurricane. If a storm is bad enough, Citizens could raise rates for policy holders by more than 40 percent and assess residents using other companies up to 16 percent more than their current premium, Miller said. "All this is about reducing that" amount, Miller said. Nevertheless, he supports the move. "It's got to pay for its own way 100 percent," he said. Lynne McChristian, Florida representative for the Insurance Information Institute, also said Citizens was right to discontinue builders'risk coverage because the taxpayer-funded company "should not be in the business of under-priced insurance." "There is a market for that. People may not want to pay the difference in premiums, but it's the right thing to do," she said. "Riskbased prices are higher in most vulnerable areas. Citizens does not have to be in the business of insuring buildings in these high-risk areas. It leaves the taxpayers on the hook for losses."Move may mean less construction in Florida KeysBy DAVE GOODHUEkeysreporter.comINSURANCECity goes another round on hotel unitsThe Marathon Planning Commission meets Tuesday for a second round of feedback on how 100 new hotel units awarded by the state should be doled out. City Planning Director George Garrett said the format would be much like a Feb. 23 workshop at which some 30 local hotel owners, real-estate agents and other residents offered suggestions and concerns with the process. "It'll be very similar, but obviously the Planning Commission will be in the middle of it as well. It'll give them an opportunity to hear from some of the people we heard from already. The Planning Commission can weigh in a little bit on their own and offer some thoughts," he said. In January, the state Cabinet, based on a state Department of Economic Opportunity recommendation, awarded the 100 units in recognition of Marathon's nearly completed citywide sewer system. The city could also borrow forward another 100 units. Garrett said the Planning Commission, an advisory board to the City Council on land use, would consider amendments and changes to the comprehensive plan and land development regulations at its April 16 meeting that would allow the city to allocate transient, or hotel, units. The city and Monroe County each have a moratorium in place on new hotel units. The only way to secure existing unit rights is to purchase them from private owners. Garrett said the comp plan and LDR changes are "pretty basic" and that what must be worked out is how the units will be doled out and to whom. "We'll outline some ideas and I don't think they'll be hugely different than what we discussed in the past some indication you're ready to bring building plans, some demonstration of financial capability and an indication that you can get it done quickly," he said. What hasn't been discussed and would likely come up at Tuesday's meeting is whether to establish a limit on how many units one project could receive. Similar concerns, as well as whether the city would charge for the 100 units, were raised in February. Spottswood Cos. Vice President Bill Spottswood spoke at the March 13 council meeting and said the longawaited Faro Blanco Resort and Yacht Club is on hold until the city doles out the units. Spottswood said construction is ready to begin but that he wants 25 of the 100 units to add to the planned 100room Hyatt hotel at Faro Blanco. Spottswood said Hyatt's template is for 125 rooms and that it gave his company an exception to go under that amount. Tuesday's meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the fire station at Florida Keys Marathon Airport.

The package was addressed to an elderly woman who lives on Morton Street on Grassy Key, Johnson's postal route. However, she never intended to deliver it to the woman, whose address apparently was used as a ruse. Instead, according to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, "she admitted that she was going to hold the package for [a man] that she knows as Puppy." Tuesday, Postal Service inspectors in Miami received information about the suspicious package from their counterparts in Tucson, Ariz. That was relayed to the Keys Sheriff's Office, which had detectives follow Johnson on her route. At the end of her route, she put the package of pot in her car trunk, then was arrested by the detectives who had been watching her.

Saturday,March 31,2012 5A Keynoter KeysNet.com Lobster season closes, bounty looks goodAlobster season that rewarded commercial fishermen with high prices and bountiful catches closes today."We've had good catches, good prices and no storms so it's been an awesome year," Conch Key trap fisherman Jeff Cramer said Friday. "Last year may have been my best in terms of prices and catch," said Cramer, in the business for more than three decades. "This year should beat it." Reports from throughout Monroe County which annually produces about 90 percent of Florida's statewide harvest of spiny lobster are similar, said Bill Kelly, executive director of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermen's Association. "It's been a robust season for spiny lobster and stone crabs," Kelly said. "Prices have held up well, mostly fueled by demand from China and Taiwan."Final trip reports to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will be arriving over the next several weeks but all indications are that it will end as a successful season, said Fish and Wildlife Research Institute biologist Tom Matthews."The last two lobster fishing seasons have had the highest landings and nearly the highest price in the last decade," Matthews said Friday. The eight-month regular season in 2010-11 produced about 5.9 million pounds of spiny lobster statewide; Monroe County alone accounted for 5.1 million pounds.The current season had logged 5.5 million pounds statewide with the final three months typically slow times yet to report. Regular lobster season opened last Aug. 6. Atypical legal-size lobster weighs about 1 pound. "It's safe to say it will wind up being very similar to last year in terms of landings," Matthews said. Kelly said most lobster and crab boats have virtually stopped fishing in the waning months of both seasons. "Better than 75 percent of the traps from both fisheries are back on shore," he said. Prices also have remained strong. The most recent prices for dockside wholesale prices paid to fishermen were $6.66 per pound, a penny above last season's final price. In the grim 2009-10 season, prices slumped to an average of just $3.41 per pound as the economy sagged and stocks of frozen lobster accumulated. Now, the market for exported live lobster occasionally can net fishermen more than $10 per pound. Matthews noted, "While in was a good season for landings compared to the last decades, it would have been considered a bad year in the mid-1990s." Several lobster seasons in the 1990s generated landings of around 7 million pounds annually. After bleak harvests and low prices earlier this decade, the last two years have provided relief to the industry, Kelly said. Wholesale income from the two crustacean fisheries generates about $100 million directly into the Monroe County economy, he said. "That turns over about three times for everything from boat repairs and gear to home improvements so it has a big effect locally," he said. Monroe County has around 650 licensed trap fishermen and 125 licensed commercial divers. About 950 stone-crab permits are issued to Keys residents.It would be second straight year of successFISHERIESConvicted killerappealsAconvicted Marathon killer is back in the Keys, trying to get a new trial for what he claims was ineffective counsel. Larry Leatherwood, 46, was convicted in October 2003 of shooting chef Mark Evans to death on Halloween in 2000 at the Eastwind Apartments on Sombrero Beach Road. Acting Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker sentenced him to life on his first-degree murder conviction, plus 40 years for being a convicted felon with a weapon. He's serving his sentence at Tomoka Correctional Institute in Daytona Beach. This past week, he was flown to Key West for a hearing on his claim that his defense was flawed. It was unclear Friday if he maintains it was his defense at trial or in any of the appeals he's filed, and in front of which judge he'll appear. Prosecutor Tanner Demmery was out of town Friday and couldn't be reached. Leatherwood shot Evans three times with a .44 caliber handgun as Evans was leaving a party at the apartment complex. At the time, authorities said Leatherwood was courting Evans'ex-wife and the two men had been involved in an altercation six months before the shooting. Leatherwood and Evans exchanged words at the party early in the evening and Leatherwood left, returning with the weapon. As Evans was headed out the door, Leatherwood shot him in the femur, abdomen and head, authorities said. Leatherwood was on the lam for eight months following the shooting, eventually arrested in Bibb County, Ga., near Macon, when police there responded to a domestic dispute between him and a girlfriend.

Saddlebunch Keys resident Rush Maltz, 36, former owner of Odyssea Sport Fishing, was sentenced Tuesday to 18 months in federal prison for illegally diving on underwater casitas, or artificial habitat, to harvest lobster and falsifying records to conceal the activity. U.S. District Judge Jose E. Martinez ordered Maltz to surrender $62,000 from the sale of his boats, both used in the illegal lobstering, and his company. Co-defendant Titus A. Werner, 36, of Little Torch Key was sentenced to one year plus a day. Both will be placed on supervised release after their prison terms. Maltz and Werner pleaded guilty in Key West federal court in January. "At their own expense and under [federal] supervision, defendants Maltz and Werner are removing over 200 casitas that they had illegally placed in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary," according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney's Office. Casitas are habitats placed on the ocean floor to attract and concentrate spiny lobster for easy harvesting by divers. According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, Maltz and Werner worked with Scott Greager, owner of Holiday Seafood Key West, from May 2007 through March 2009 in a scheme to collect and conceal the lobster harvests, which require licenses and catch limits. Greager was sentenced previously. Overall, prosecutors say, the conspiracy involved more than $263,000 in illegally harvested and sold lobster.Pair of boats and business are forfeitedKeynoter StaffIN THE COURTSAfter bleak harvests and low prices earlier this decade,the last two years have provided relief to the industry. Boat leads to felony littering countAformer Marathon resident has been charged with felony littering for failing to remove a houseboat that sank while being towed off the Lower Keys last summer.Ryan A. Checkley, 33, was booked Wednesday at the Marathon jail on a warrant obtained by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers in February. Checkley was released the same day after posting $17,500 bond. The case stems from the Aug. 30, 2011, sinking of a 50-foot houseboat that Checkley had been hired to tow south to Key West. The houseboat sank about a half-mile off Sugarloaf Key, near Sammy's Creek. According to the arrest warrant, FWC officers contacted the vessel owner and Checkley. Since Checkley was in custody of the boat, he was legally required to ensure the boat was removed from state waters.The agency remained in contact with Checkley and extended the time period for removal, according to FWC Officer Steve Dion's report. When contacted in December, Checkley had moved to Sebring but pledged to remove the houseboat in the near future.When no action had been taken by late January, the agency obtained a warrant charging Checkley with felony disposal of debris for commercial gain, and a misdemeanor count of abandoning a derelict boat in state water. The status of the sunken vessel was not available at press time.CRIME FRONTKeynoter Staff

I am a lieutenant junior grade cadet at Key West High School and to have this program shut down due to lack of participation would be a detriment to the students and community of Key West. Many of the students and parents outside of the JROTC program believe the program is merely a recruiting tool used by the different services for military accession. In actuality, it is a program that teaches students how to become better citizens, promotes community service, provides an alternative to gangs and provides incentive to live a healthier lifestyle away from drugs and other vices. The NJROTC program motivates students to graduate from high school by providing instruction and rewarding opportunities that benefit the student, the community and our nation. It prepares high school students for leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities and privileges as American citizens. The study of ethics, citizenship, communications, leadership, life skills and other subjects are designed to prepare young men and woman to take their place in adult society. The JROTC program promotes higher education with the addition of college fund programs, loan repayment programs and more. It is an additional means for scholarships for students that would like to continue their education after high school. There also seems to be a misperception that only certain students are allowed or encouraged to participate in such JROTC programs, which isn't true by any means. I am also a student athlete and have lettered in football, basketball and track. I am a proud to say that I have been serving as a member of the Navy/Army JROTC program for the past three years and I have enjoyed every moment of it. Students and parents that participate in the Navy JROTC program are just as important as any other program, sports team or club within our high school. Please don't allow this program to disappear from our school due to lack of participation. Encourage your young adults that attend Key West High School to participate in the NJROTC program. The benefits of the program will be evident in their higher self worth and attitude, improved grades and pride in both their school and community. Miguel Rivera Key WestSadly, latest plans from Washington and Tallahassee look for others' to pay increasingly rising costsThe vast expansion of Medicaid in the 2010 health-care reform law put Washington on a collision course with cash-strapped state governments, which have been scrambling to reduce the cost of the joint federal-state insurance program for the poor and disabled. That conflict reached the Supreme Court on Wednesday, when lawyers for 24 states sought to bar Congress from adding millions of Americans to the program's rolls. The lead plaintiff in the case is the state of Florida. Meanwhile, the House is considering a Republican budget proposal that would cap Medicaid spending and hand over control to the states. Neither approach, however, would solve the program's budget problems, which mirror those faced by the entire healthcare system. To help reduce the number of uninsured Americans, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act expanded Medicaid to include legal residents with incomes up to 33 percent above the federal poverty line. Although Washington will pick up at least 90 percent of the cost of the new enrollees, the expansion will still cost states tens of millions of dollars annually. The states'lawsuit contends they are being coerced to do something that Congress doesn't have the power to order them to do. Yet the law didn't create any new hurdles to states dropping out of the program and providing for the poor and disabled on their own. The fact that they don't want to is testament to how good a deal Medicaid remains for states, even with expanded eligibility. In Florida, the Legislature managed to pass the buck on Medicaid cost overruns by shifting those expenses back to counties on questionable and disputed Medicaid bills. Last year, those disputed bills saved Monroe County taxpayers an estimated $800,000. Gov. Rick Scott signed the bill into law on Thursday, though he pledged to have the Agency for Health Care Administration work with counties to improve the accuracy of bills. The House GOP's latest budget proposal offers an alternate approach, namely, giving states Medicaid dollars as block grants with much more freedom to set their own rules. Ultimately, the challenges are the same as in the rest of the health-care system: Asmall percentage of the beneficiaries rack up most of the bills. That means states must continue to search for ways to deliver care more efficiently and to save money through higher-quality, better-coordinated care. Those are the goals of the Affordable Care Act, which is part of the solution, not the problem. Los Angeles Times, with Keynoter contributionsState needs to wake up againRe: The 10-foot crocodile that took a 65-pound dog from its owner's property in Key Largo on March 22: The magnitude of the absurdity that Florida would use its citizens tax dollars on the reintroduction of a nearly extinct apex predator into a habitat that results in direct threats to citizens in that habitat is unbelievable. It seems the state is disinclined to acknowledge this. It seems the state is disinclined to acknowledge this in its position to unwillingly levy blame on a crocodile in the incident last year in Key Largo in which a couple in its kayak was overturned by a large animal, resulting in puncture wounds and scratches to the individuals, nor in its reluctance to eliminate the crocodile in the March 22 attack and killing of a family pet. Chris Holt Tavernier Editor's note: The state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has maintained that it isn't positive a crocodile caused the kayak incident.Spider comes through againOn behalf of the Monroe County Domestic Abuse Shelter, I'd like to thank Capt. Spider Branch for once again letting us be the beneficiary of one of his weekly Casting for Charity contests at the 7 Mile Marina in Marathon.

Spider and the participating anglers who continually support the shelter and the essential services we provide. Venita Garvin Valdez, CEO Monroe County Domestic Abuse ShelterDon't judge so quicklyReading the almost universal condemnation of George Zimmerman in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, I can't help but recall Richard Jewell, the poor rent-a-cop who was tarred and feathered in the Olympic Games bombing in Atlanta. Before the investigation was even completed, the FBI had this sad sack (who was actually a stealth hero) made into the most despised man in America. He was eventually completely exonerated. There seems to be the same rush to judgment on the Martin shooting. Why did the police back off on an arrest? They knew the firestorm that was coming. They thought or had reason to believe that events came down different than told by the media and race-baiting firebrands. It would have been an easy way out to perp-walk Zimmerman for all the torch and pitchforkbearing, mob-seeking vigilante justice after the "monster." Perhaps, just perhaps, there may be facts, witnesses and liedetector tests that cast doubt on what most think must have taken place. The Black Panthers offering a $10,000 reward, dead or alive, is way over the top. Can you imagine the media if the colors were reversed? Let's seek calm, take a deep breath and get this right before irreparable damage occurs. We have gotten the ATeam (FBI, Justice Department, governor's office) on the case. Tone down the rhetoric so we can learn the facts. Aterrible tragedy has occurred. Let's not compound it. Bob Guerin MarathonEnjoy the state parksMy calendar has informed me of the official beginning of the refreshing spring season, although I've felt it outside for a few weeks now. As a Floridian, I know spring will be short but it will also be time to break out of your everyday routine, release some stress, get out of the office and experience nature in Florida's parks. Take the time this season to experience nature with five of your senses -seeing Florida's vistas, smelling newly bloomed flowers, feeling the sand between your toes, hearing the sounds of children playing and tasting the treats in your picnic basket in a state park. Spring is an optimum season to engross yourself in the natural and cultural resources of Florida's state parks. There are so many opportunities for new experiences and special places to continue your old family traditions. Sometimes it is a hike in the forest, a walk on the beach, building sand castles with your kids, watching a sunrise or sunset, grilling lunch under a big oak tree, looking for a bird species to add to your life list or paddling your canoe on a long stretch of river. It's about immersion, surrounding yourself with nature and coming away with a renewed appreciation for Florida's splendor. Sometimes you need a slow, relaxing experience and sometimes you might prefer a fast, exhilarating experience. I encourage you to spend time in Florida's award-winning state parks this season. Savor the atmosphere of spring and enjoy the Sunshine State in the real Florida. Donald Forgione, director Florida Park Service TallahasseeHealth law should standIf the insurance mandate is struck down, then I hope all of it is struck down. Let the seniors in the doughnut hole pay more money. Let seniors do without diagnostic tests that could catch cancer early. Let the people with pre-existing conditions go without insurance. Let the young people 18 to 28 take their chances with no insurance. Let children with child chronic health problems do without health care. Let people resort to bankruptcy when they can't pay their health-care bills. Let thousands of people die each year for want of timely health care. If they could not take the time to tell their legislators that they wanted the Affordable Care Act, then they can live or not with the consequences.

But come first light, the rooster does his job and gets the hens up and lets you know it's feeding time. If all we had to worry about was chicken poop, that would be great. What about iguanas and their large poop and people who walk their dogs and do no clean up after them? Every time you eat eggs, thank a chicken.

Flanked by leaders of Florida's top economic trade groups and agencies, Gov. Rick Scott on Wednesday signed several business tax cuts he said will accelerate economic development in the state."The passage of my jobs package is a great example of all of us working together to make Florida the best state to live and do business," he said.The economic development package includes more than $1 billion in tax cuts for businesses during the next three years. It features broad cuts in the unemployment tax and the corporate-income tax, and targeted reductions for manufacturers, privateplane repairers, and fruit and meat packers. Scott said it's difficult to say definitively how certain targeted tax cuts will lead to job creation but noted that the package helps make Florida a more competitive state for business expansion. "If we want employers to hire more people, we've got to think like they do," said Scott, a former CEO. "We've got to keep their costs as low as they can. We've got to make sure that we're more competitive than any jurisdiction in the world." Said House Speaker Dean Cannon: "There's not a single bill that we can pass or any group of bills that will drive unemployment to zero and get our economy fully recovered. But we can create an environment that sends a signal of stability and predictability to job creators."The public signing is the latest in a public-relations push by Scott to shape the discussion about the job he has done as governor. With gubernatorial elections still two years away, the Republican Party has been running television ads touting Scott's probusiness record.Between oral arguments in the Supreme Court healthcare case and Trayvon Martin's death, Scott has seen a heavy dose of media attention in recent days. After speaking about Martin on CNN and MSNBC last weekend, Scott pivoted to touting Florida as a great place to do business before a national audience. The state has added about 77,100 jobs since Scott took office in 2011, but 36,000 jobs were lost in January and several problems persist. Florida continues to lead the nation in stalled foreclosures, and unemployment is persistently high, at 9.6 percent. Scott's economic-development package also includes bills that help the governor reduce regulations and fire ineffective members of regional workforce boards.

Cash-strapped Americans are paying off their car loans before they pay credit card bills and make mortgage payments, a study finds. It used to be that Americans would pay their home loans first, then their credit card and car loans. After all, homes have been the most valuable possession for most people for decades, and nobody wanted to jeopardize that.But TransUnion, a credit information company, studied the payment patterns of 4 million Americans with at least one car loan, one credit card and a mortgage and found a clear priority for staying current on the car loan.Among Americans who were late on payments last year, 39 percent were delinquent on the mortgage while current on the car loan and credit cards, and 17 percent were late on credit cards while current on the other two.Only 10 percent were late on the car loan while current on the other two. "Today, most people need a car to get to a job or to look for a job, and that has made cars a priority," says Ezra Becker, the company's vice president of research and consulting.When TransUnion first did the study in 2006, staying current on the mortgage was the priority: Only 3.6 percent of Americans were late on the mortgage and current on other payments. More people 5 percent were late only on credit cards.It hasn't helped that home prices keep falling while the mortgage remains by far the biggest payment for most people. The latest Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller home price index found that prices in big cities had fallen to 2002 levels, down 34 percent from the peak. There is also more leeway on the mortgage. Foreclosure can take two to three years. Cars can be repossessed 90 days after people stop paying.Mortgages and credit cards no longer topsAssociated PressPERSONAL FINANCEWomen becoming the richer sexNow in her 40s, Janna Ronert looks years younger than her age and takes home a paycheck that's just as attractive. With a background in sales, Ronert has built a clinical skin-care business in West Palm Beach that employs 150 people and rings up sales of more than $30 million. It is one of the largest women-led businesses in Florida.Ronert is now part of what is being called The Richer Sex.As women have become better educated, more entrepreneurial and more experienced, their earning power has risen.Today, nearly four in 10 working wives earn more than their husbands, an increase of more than 50 percent from 20 years ago, according to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistic figures. If present trends continue, the next generation of families will be supported by more women than men. As female economic clout grows, "it's interesting to see how it plays out," says Liza Mundy, author of "The Richer Sex," a new book that documents this new economic order and the adjustments that will have to be made. Mundy says already the country has seen a change in the way men and women work, play, raise families and choose spouses.Undoubtedly, the wage gaps still persists: Women working full time earn a median wage that is 81 percent of what men make. But what has changed is that women who have more college and advanced degrees are landing better jobs or making their own opportunities. The seismic shift in these paychecks comes as womenowned businesses are quickly blossoming. Nationally, the number of women-owned businesses has increased by 54 percent since 1997. As of 2012, it is estimated that there are more than 8.3 million women-owned businesses in the United States, generating nearly $1.3 trillion in revenue, according to a new report by American Express OPEN.In Florida, the Commonwealth Institute's 2012 report shows at least a third of women-led companies have experienced growth, and most leaders predict even more in the next year as they expand their existing markets, products and services. "We're now at a stage where women operating their own businesses are not unusual," says Julie Weeks, American Express OPEN research advisor. "It's causing a magnetic effect." Clearly, Ronert's entrepreneurial venture has been her path to high earnings. "There's no way if I stayed in corporate America, my salary and earnings could have reached this level." Women like Ronert are discovering that economic power comes with more responsibility.Miami HeraldPERSONAL FINANCE

The Marathon High School running game that's baseball, not football was on full display during a 10-3 win over District 16 opponent Somerset Academy Tuesday. Coach Luis Leal has emphasized putting pressure on the defense by using speedy runners to steal bases all season, with unprecedented success. The Dolphins (12-7) stole nine bases against the Panthers. "Base running has paid off this year for us. That's been the one thing that's been consistent. As long as we get on base, we make something happen," Leal said. Ian Almodovar stole two and increased his total to 29 in 20 games played. Leal said that's easily a school record and the Dolphins have at least nine games remaining.Almodovar was 1-for-2 at the plate with a walk and three runs scored.Carlos O'Farrill was 3-for3 with a walk, RBI, two stolen bases and two runs scored, while Yoniel Esquirol was 1for-4 with two RBI, two stolen bases and a run scored.Drew Thornbrugh and Sean Roussin each had RBI singles and Roussin stole two bases. Thornbrugh started and pitched five innings, giving up five hits, walking two batters and striking out three.

Kenny Spaulding led angler Fred Beshara, 67, to the impressive catch. The semi-retired contractor/developer fromYoungstown, Ohio, caught the fish on 80-pound test tackle with a Daiwa Dendoh MP3000 electric power-assist reel. Crewmembers on the boat were Conan Yates, William Bassett and Spaulding's 12year-old son, K.C.The big fish bit on a squid in about 1,850 feet of water, said Spaulding, who skippers a 44-foot Carolinadesigned sportfisherman. "We were drifting along for about 15, 20 minutes and all of the sudden there was a little nibble and then an explosion," Spaulding said. "We backed down [the boat] to try to stay on top of him." Spaulding, who has been an Islamorada captain since 1997, said it required about two hours to get the fish close to the boat and, toward the end of the fight, it leaped completely out of the water. Incredibly, when they got the fish next to the boat, another swordfish suddenly appeared."That fish was glowing and lit up like a Christmas tree," he said of the second broadbill. "I've never seen anything like that in my life."Two veteran Keys captains, daytime swordfishing pioneer Richard Stanczyk and Jim Sharpe, acknowledged the big catch. "We've seen fish in the 400to 475-pound range, but I've never heard of a 500-pound or heavier fish caught in the Keys during daytime hours," Sharpe said. Stanczyk said a 612.75pound broadbill was caught off Key Largo at night. That fish, reeled in May 7, 1978, by Stephen Stanford, is still a state record, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.It's unusual for such catch during daytime Fins burning up the base pathsThe 12-7 team steals nine over SomersetBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON BASEBALLKeynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYMarathon High School junior Sean Roussin slides in safely at second base during a 10-3 baseball win over Somerset Academy Tuesday.Roussin had two of the Dolphins' nine stolen bases.See Dolphins,2BLady Canes stage late comebackAflurry of late goals saved the Coral Shores High lacrosse Lady Hurricanes in Tuesday's rusty return from Spring Break.

"We really to work for it against a much-improved Killian club."Cane attacker Julia Lozano logged another highscoring effort with seven goals and two assists. That gives her 44 goals and 11 assists through nine games, both squad highs. Senior forward Jenn Doyle scored four goals at Killian and kept the Cougar defensive pressure from focusing on Lozano. Senior defender Cami Lopez forced six turnovers and scored a goal on a return run. Kaitlyn O'Leary scored a solo goal for Coral Shores. Goalie Elizabeth Roa netted nine saves, each critical in the tight contest. Coral Shores owned an 87 halftime lead but Killian "chipped away at us," Hall said.

It was their fifth loss in a row, their 11th in 12 games. They have won once in 37 days. They need to win their remaining eight regular-season contests including one against powerhouse Archbishop McCarthy on April 9 at Marlins Stadium to avoid a rare losing season.They also lost a chance to compete for first place in District 16-4A, dropping to 2-3 while St. Brendan (15-4, 4-1) clinched the regular-season district title. The Conchs will be the third seed in the district tournament in late April at Coral Shores, and will have to defeat Gulliver Prep (against whom they have split two games) in the tourney's first round to reach the state playoffs. "It's my fault. I've got to do a better job," seventh-year coach Miguel Menendez told WKWF 1600-AM after Thursday's game. "We didn't make enough plays."

The Dolphins scored the game's first eight runs, starting with two in the bottom of the first inning. Almodovar was hit by a pitch, stole second and scored on a Carlos O'Farrill single. O'Farrill took second on the throw home, stole third and scored on a base hit by Esquirol. Marathon added another two runs in the bottom of the third inning. Almodovar started things off again with a single and a stolen base. He scored when the Panthers'pitcher threw a ball into centerfield trying to pick him off while O'Farrill was at bat. O'Farrill eventually walked, stole second and reached third on an Esquirol grounder. He scored on a wild pitch to make it 4-0. The Dolphins added four more runs in the fourth inning to put the game out of reach. P.J. Palmer singled, and reached third after an errant throw on Kevin McKeon's sacrifice bunt attempt. Palmer scored on a Roussin bunt single. McKeon later scored on a wild pitch, and Roussin scored on an O'Farrill single after stealing second and third bases. Thornbrugh drove home Esquirol to make it 8-0. Somerset put three runs up in the top half of the fifth, but Marathon answered with two more in the bottom half and Pierce shut the door on the mound to close out the win.Marathon was scheduled to host Palmer Trinity School Friday, but results were not available at press time.

The Conchs, who led 10 after a second-inning RBI single by Chris Varela, had a chance to extend the lead in the third after a double by Chris Garcia sent Tommy Ruffennach, who had singled, to third with one out. But then Matt Chelekis flied to short center and Hugo Valdez bounced back to the pitcher. In the bottom of the third inning, St. Brendan tied the game at 1-1, then went ahead when an infield hit by Jerry Downs scored Jose Carrera, who had been on third base because of a throwing error by freshman catcher Zack Hughes. In the top of the fourth, freshman Andrew Freeman was thrown out trying to reach third after Varela had singled him to second. In the top of the fifth, with runners at first and second and one out, Hugo Valdez hit relief pitcher Andres Ruiz's first pitch into a double play. Yet with the score still 21, it appeared to be anyone's game. But then St. Brendan struck for four runs in the last of the fifth against Garcia, one scoring on a throwing error and one on a squeeze bunt before Eric Alvarez unloaded a two-RBI double. St. Brendan staged a two-out rally in the sixth to make it 8-1, with one run scoring on a wild pitch and another on a single by Clive Edwards. The Conchs, who lost to the Sabres, 9-5, earlier in the season, played without Darren Miller, perhaps their most valuable player, who had been suspended for two games for running into a catcher during the team's recent trip to Tampa. Miller will return tonight when the Conchs play Sunrise Christian at 7:30 at Rex Weech Field.Conchs drop 11 of their past 12From Conchs,1Bto several powerhouse programs such as American Heritage and Westminster Christian School.

No. 5 Fernanda Caceres won the No. 5 singles match for the Conchs over Kelsey Melton. No. 3 Savannah Schuhmacher (8-4) and No. 4 Regan Durkin (8-5) earned the Dolphins'only singles victories. "That was our last match of the [regular] season and we were hoping to use it as a stepping stone for districts. That's a very young team. Coach [Chris] Bull has some talent coming back," Key West girls coach Bill Butler said of the Marathon girls. Bull praised Durkin and Schuhmacher for rebounding from sub-par performances against Key West earlier this season.They "were both mad about their performance in Key West and were focused in their victories" Thursday, he said. "Regan is tending to a wrist injury and probably should have sat out, but she wanted to play expressly to prove she could beat Key West. Her desire showed in a solid victory in singles and a good showing in [No. 1] doubles."On the boys side, the Conchs'Justin Poon edged Vincenzo Massaro, 8-6, in a tight No. 1 singles match. The No. 3 and No. 4 matches also went to Key West, as Griffin Saunders (86) defeated Emilio Alvear and Jason Correa won in a tiebreak over Jake Coldren, 9-8 (5-7).Jamine Guo came back from a 1-5 deficit to earn the No. 2 singles victory for Marathon over Kyle Campbell, 8-6. No. 5 Stevie Nelson defeated Roderick Gill, 8-4, in the No. 5 singles match.Key West wrapped the match up with a 9-8 (7-4) victory for Poon and Saunders in No. 1 doubles. "What a strange night. Some kids stepped up and some had some opportunities lost. The boys had an opportunity to win the matchup by the time singles was done, but just couldn't finish a couple of matches," Bull said.

Saturday,March 31,2012 3B Keynoter KeysNet.com Hunger Gamesslowly grabs viewersrapt attentionThe Hunger Games, Rated PG-13, 142 min., now playing nationwide With the Harry Potter films finished and the Twilightseries down to one more film, The Hunger Games trilogy is next in line to take over the teen and tween crowd and their coveted movie dollars. Based on the first of Suzanne Collinss three popular young adult novels, The Hunger Games has taken the box office by storm its opening weekend gross was the third highest in Hollywood history, eclipsing Spider-Man, Pirates of the Caribbean and Twilight movies. The film was co-written by Collins and directed by Gary Ross, whose previous directorial efforts include Pleasantville and Seabiscuit. This first release (the sequel Catching Fire is already filming) takes place in a vastly different former United States, now known as Panem, which is divided into 12 districts. The people of the districts are dirt poor and all the resources they produce go to provide an extravagant lifestyle for the wellto-do in the Capitol, in stark contrast to the barely surviving general population. In a cinematic version of the 1 percent keeping the 99 percent under iron-fisted control, every year each district must send two young people, called tributes, to the Hunger Games. There, they must fight to the death until only one contestant is left. The tributes are chosen by lottery and the sole survivor is rewarded with riches beyond their wildest dreams. Jennifer Lawrence, who gave an Oscar-nominated performance in 2010s Winters Bone, plays Katniss Everdeen, a young woman from the twelfth district, who volunteers to replace her younger sister whos chosen in the lottery. An expert with bow and arrow, Katniss has grown up hunting and foraging to feed the family and would seem to have a better chance of survival in the games. It does take a while to warm up to Law-rences heroine Katniss, but by the time she bonds and teams up with one of the younger female tributes, the audience is rooting for her all the way. Josh Hutcherson plays the male tribute from the twelfth district who seems to side with Katniss, but has secrets of his own. Young Australian actor Liam Hemsworth portrays Katnisslove interest back home, a relationship we are led to assume will be explored in future films. An unrecognizable Elizabeth Banks plays an odd district twelve escort and Lenny Kravitz is likable as the character Cinna, Katnissmakeup and wardrobe assistant.

Woody Harrelson is perfectly cast as the alcoholic game survivor Haymitch Abernathy, a mentor to Katniss and Hutchersons character, Peeta Mellark. But the scene stealer in the film has to be Stanley Tucci as Caesar Flickman, the gamestelevision host. His dazzling blue hair and gleaming white teeth add to his campy over-the-top performance. This film literally lights up every time Tucci appears on screen. As you would expect in a kill-or-be-killed story, the movie is violent. But the directors use of quick flashes of spattering blood and slashing weapons, interspersed with shots of the dead, shows the brutality of the games without being too graphic. Its a well done technique and Ross employs it effectively. The costumes and set designs are terrific the fabulous furniture and interior sets are somehow futuristic and retro at the same time so dont be surprised if they are recognized at Oscar time next year. The special effects team does a good job of making the unreal look real. The lavish Capitol is believable and the vicious computergenerated animals are lifelike enough to scare smaller children in the audience. Ross overdoes the handheld shaky-cam technique a little and the computergenerated threats thrown at the contestants are definitely the stuff of true science fiction (real killer beasts created out of thin air?). But they do add an extra element of danger, as if 23 other teenagers trying to kill you isnt dangerous enough0. And speaking of killer kids, the astute viewer may wonder, if these games have been going on for 70-plus years, why isnt every child in the twelve districts trained in the deadly arts from the day they become toddlers? Maybe well find out in the sequel. Aside from these few imperfections, even those who have never heard of the books should enjoy The Hunger Games. Those who know the books will probably complain that the movie isnt equal to the novel (dont most bookto-movie adaptations fall a little short?). But the movie does grab and hold the viewers attention, despite the fact that the actual games dont begin until halfway into the 142-minute run time. The Hunger Games is an exciting film and, to paraphrase a line from the film, the odds are ever in your favorthat you will leave the theater hungering for the next installment.Tucci steals every scene as hyperkinetic TVhostFrom Games,3B 91298 Overseas Hwy, Tavernierbbtheatres.com NOWALLDIGITAL!Fri. 3/30 Tues. 4/3 Wrath of the Titans (PG13) 3D 1:55;4:35;7:15; 9:50 2D 4:35 Mirror Mirror (PG13) 1:40; 4:15; 7:05; 9:35* The Hunger Games (PG13) 12:45; 1:30; 3:50; 4:45; 6:55; 8:00; 10:00* 21 Jump Street (R) 2:00; 4:30; 7:20; 9:50* TITANIC 3D OPENS 4/4 Sorry, no passes.

Thats because of the widespread use of gingerbread details on gable ends, vergeboards, balcony rails and other wood trim used on Key Wests wood-frame houses. Key West artist Susann DAntonio has made a study of these architectural gems, which will be showcased at a new Frangipani Gallery exhibit of her work starting Friday, April 6. The Gallery, 1102ADuval St., hosts a reception for DAntonio from 6-9 p.m. The show runs through April 18. DAntonio, perhaps best known for her Fantasy Fest costumes and floats as well as painted and decorated gourds and palm sheaves, has added a Gingerbread series. Using photos to capture details of these carpenter designs, scrolls, grills, cornice pieces and more, she has created encaustic paintings (done with wax). The focus of the photos is the gingerbred itself and the foliage surrounding it, according to organizers of the show. The photos, which are printed on canvas, inspired the encaustic painting. They are semi-abstracted interpretations highlighting the gingerbread detail. DAntonios latest project was funded, in part, by a grant from the Anne McKee Artists Fund of the Florida Keys.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 6B Saturday,March 31,2012 LivingBook celebrates best of the best chefsLong after James Beard helped trigger a cult of cooking in the United States, the foundation named for him continues to recognize the nation's top chefs in the field. Now, the 25th anniversary of the foundation will be celebrated with a new book "The James Beard Foundation's Best of the Best" complete with stories on and recipes from 21 chefs who have won the group's Outstanding Chef honor. "I took my appetite on an adventure," said Kit Wohl, the author, who spent two years traveling the country to talk with those renowned chefs and get an insider's peak at their kitchens and philosophies. "It was wonderful to see how American cuisine has evolved over the last 25 years." The evolution of the food craze, and the transformation of chefs into new rock stars, was certainly sparked by the group in this book. The James Beard awards honor those who follow in the footsteps of Beard, considered the dean of American cooking when he died in 1985. When Wolfgang Puck opened Spago in 1982, Wohl writes, the Beverly Hills restaurant that achieved such fame was "never intended to be a particularly fancy or glamorous place." But Orson Wells, a man who once said gluttony is not a secret vice, started dining there and word of his love of the restaurant quickly spread. What kept the crowds coming back was the food. Puck the first Beard Foundation honoree and the only person to win the award twice also instituted many of the practices now considered routine in restaurants, Wohl said, including an open kitchen, focusing on fresh, local produce, and emphasizing a new casually elegant style of dining. Along the way, chefs not only learned from each other, Wohl said, they continued to innovate, introducing new styles of cooking and new forms of presentation. "Each chef brought something unusual, different into play," Wohl said. "If you start with Puck and moved on to recent years, you can see how styles in cooking and presentation have changed." And though she dealt with a group of super stars of the food world, used to ruling their kitchens and restaurants completely, Wohl said they were surprisingly free of the massive egos one might expect. "I think they worked so hard to get where they are they can relax now," Wohl said. "They've proven their point." Wohl said Thomas Keller of the French Laundry and the 1997 winner of the award was more typical of the attitude she found in her time with the chefs. After visiting the restaurant's garden, Wohl said they returned to the test kitchen beside it and Keller kicked off his clogs, "turned on Sting and then was on his hands and knees wiping up footprints from the garden." She also had bread balls flung at her by Michel Richard as he drew at his kitchen table in Citronelle in Washington, D.C., and found Judy Rogers of Zuni Caf in San Francisco had pencils holding her top knot of hair in place so she could always have one handy for her constant note taking. And she was told by Tom Colicchio, of Craft in New York, that he was not a celebrity chef. "Brad Pitt isn't called a celebrity actor," he points out. "I'm not a celebrity. I'm a chef," Wohl said.21 profiled with some of their recipesAssociated PressTHE DINNER TABLEKeys shark expert profiledSet your DVR to catch Florida Keys Community College's dean of marine science and technology, Patrick Rice, on the premiere of "NOVA: Hunting the Elements" at 9 p.m. Wednesday. The two-hour special, hosted by The New York Times technology correspondent David Pogue, explores nature's building blocks and the periodic table. In addition to leading the college's marine-oriented programs, Rice researches and develops shark repellent technologies with the company Shark Defense Technologies LLC. In his segment, he explains how he and his scientist partners at Shark Defense discovered that certain rare metals called lanthanides have shark-repelling properties. Filmed at the Aqua Ranch at mile marker 69, Rice shares the spotlight with a nine-foot lemon shark named Stormy. Rice presents Stormy with two tuna steaks one beside a lanthanide metal and one beside a lead weight of similar size and shape used as a control. The simple experiment clearly shows the shark's aversion to the metal even in the presence of one of the famous predator's favorite meals. "Our best hypothesis for the phenomena is that the lanthanide metals form a positive charge when submerged in sea water. Sharks have a slightly negative charge," Rice said. "So when the shark swims close to the metal, it completes an electrical circuit, giving it a little shock generated by about 1.5 volts." "NOVA" is the highestrated science series on television and the most watched documentary series on public television.Rice appears on NOVA'on WednesdayTELEVISION Patrick Rice's segment was filmed at the Aqua Ranch at mile marker 69.

Saturday,March 31,2012 9B Keynoter KeysNet.com Why are 70 million Americans having trouble getting a good night's sleep? Let us count the ways: We are over-caffeinated (coffee, soft drinks, energy drinks, snacks) and overmedicated (prescription and over-the-counter drugs, including alcohol), wreaking havoc with slumber patterns. We are over-wired (video games, Web browsing, social media, texting) and overstressed (money, work, relationships, overloaded schedules), making us too restless to doze off when we should. We are overworked (longer hours, night shifts incompatible with our biological clocks) and overweight (perhaps a chickenor-egg deal, as different studies have found that one leads to the other). And then there's societal pressure, what nationally recognized sleep expert Dr. Mark Mahowald calls "the pervasive, erroneous attitude that sleep is not a biological imperative, that it is negotiable. We have raised sleep deprivation to a badge of honor." The effects might outnumber the causes, and are hardly as benign as many of us might think. "Any degree of sleep deprivation will impair performance: behind the wheel, in the classroom or workplace," Mahowald said. He added that the Bhopal, Challenger, Exxon Valdez and Three Mile Island disasters "all are officially attributed to problems from sleep deprivation. But the biggest risk of sleep deprivation is car crashes, period." No wonder the number of accredited sleep centers has risen nationwide by 630 percent in just 15 years. And while sleep study results have been all over the map and sometimes contradictory, experts such as local doctors Mahowald and Michael Schmitz know a lot more than researchers did even a decade ago. The lowdown:Insomnia victims have trouble falling or staying asleep in a setting with adequate conditions for sleep; this becomes chronic insomnia if it lasts more than three weeks. Sleep deprivation is caused by behavioral or situational factors that curtail or mitigate the ability to get enough sleep time.Most adults need seven to nine hours of sleep a night. The amount a person needs is genetically determined, Mahowald said. "Some people might need four hours on the short end, up to 10 on the high end. We have absolutely no control over this."Anyone who uses an alarm clock "is by definition sleep-deprived," Mahowald said, "because if the brain had received the amount of sleep it wanted, you would have woken up before the alarm went off."Melatonin is a hormone, secreted daily by the brain's pineal gland, that helps maintain the body's sleeping cycle. Anonprescription synthetic melatonin pill is sold in the United States and is widely used. The FDAdoes not test or regulate melatonin because it doesn't consider it a drug.Larks and owls: "Some people are early to bed, early to rise; others late to bed, late to rise. We have very little control over that," Mahowald said. "So you see a lot of problems when an owl marries a lark and each one thinks the other is being stubborn." Effects:With sleep deprivation, some glucose metabolism problems might predispose one to diabetes. And if so, a consequence could be heart disease and stroke.With insomnia, there is no evidence of long-term physical problems or links to other diseases. But insomnia results in poorer quality of life and work absences and can lead to depression.There is some evidence that severe sleep apnea can lead to hypertension, heart problems and a higher risk of strokes. Solutions:Improving sleep hygiene avoiding late eating and drinking, keeping the room cool and dark, winding down before bedtime can improve or resolve transient or acute insomnia but probably not chronic insomnia.For chronic insomnia, cognitive behavioral therapy is equally as or more effective than medications. Medication often is useful for acute insomnia.Naps can help except when they don't. "We discourage napping when anyone has problems falling or staying asleep at night, which might be an untreated sleep disorder," said behavioral sleep specialist Schmitz. "We encourage power naps, 30 minutes or less, when folks can't stay awake or will have late-night events."See your doctor if: You have had difficulty falling and staying asleep for more than a week. Or if you snore, have frequent awakenings and are reporting sleepiness during the day. Anyone with apnea symptoms should seek treatment.The reasons are countless, say researchersMcClatchy-TribuneTO YOUR HEALTH By the numbersOne third of Americans suffer from insomnia at some point in their lives.Fourteen to 15 hours of sleep a night is recommended by the Mayo Clinic for infants,12 to 14 hours for toddlers and 10 to 11 for school-age children.Eighty-four classifications of sleep disorders have been found.The American Academy of Sleep Medicine has accredited 2,365 U.S.sleep centers.In 1997,there were 374;in 2006,there were 1,000.Two million U.S.children suffer from sleep disorders.Eighteen million Americans probably suffer from sleep apnea,with more than half of them undiagnosed.$15.9 billion is added to national health care costs by sleep problems,according to the National Commission on Sleep Disorders.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 10B Saturday,March 31,2012 Yourdog too much to handle?It's one thing to work with little Spanky in the yard and through the judicious use of treats teach him to sit up or roll over. But bigger challenges digging, aggression, mindless barking and the like require more than a MilkBone. Sometimes you need a professional. First, though, talk to a veterinarian to be sure there are no physical issues causing the behavior. The next step is hiring a trainer or behaviorist. "Take into account the problem you're having or what you want," says Kristen Collins, director of anti-cruelty behavior services with the ASPCA's Anti-Cruelty Behavior Team. "Say you have an untrained dog or a dog that's rowdy when it greets people ... [if you want] to treat behaviors, a trainer is your best bet. But [for] fear, anxiety or aggression, your best bet is to go with certified behaviorists." There are four main categories of pet professionals:Trainers (or pet psychologist, pet therapist or some variation).Certified professional dog trainers.Applied animal behaviorists (certified and associate certified).Veterinary behaviorists (vets who go beyond vet school training and are certified by the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists). Certification is a big deal, Collins says, and should be from an unbiased group. There are three certification councils you can consult.For trainers, the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers ( www.ccpdt.org ).For applied behaviorists, the Animal Behavior Society ( www.certified animalbehaviorist.com ).For a board-certified veterinary behaviorist, the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists ( www.dacvb.org ). "Find someone in your area," Collins says, "then go to your vet and ask if they have any experience working with them." Also consider education, experience, recommendations and references. Collins recommends at least two or three thorough interviews over the phone. "Ask about specific experience solving problems like yours, their general education," she says. "See if the trainer will give you information on former clients so you can talk to them. And, she adds, seek "trainers who emphasize reward-based training (and) positive reinforcement. Make sure they use humane training equipment. Ask specifically about the methods the trainer will use to make sure you're OK with them." If you're considering a group class, ask to watch one. If a trainer says no, look elsewhere. They should welcome you to sit in, she says. Cost: Eight-week sessions can cost anywhere from $60 to $200. In-home lessons cost more because you'll get personal attention. Group classes are almost always less expensive. And even the classes at large national pet stores have benefits. "If you need to save some money and don't have any serious behavior problems, there's nothing wrong with enrolling in one of those classes," Collins says. "[You] learn some successful behaviors, and you'll get really good experience." The ASPCAoffers an excellent and free pet behavior database at www.aspcabehavior.org Behaviorist just might be the way to goMcClatchy-TribuneOUR PETSHey, kids, let's put on a showYour kids are out of school for Spring Break. How about putting on a show? Carol Bouzoukis, a child drama specialist with 25 years of experience, has developed a way to take children's natural affinity for play acting and use it to further their all-around development.When children use their imagination, they can work through many things, says Bouzoukis, author of "Encouraging Your Child's Imagination: AGuide and Stories for Play Acting" (Rowman & Littlefield). "It can be therapeutic, they can work out scenarios. They act that through and find resolution, even if only in play."That can help them later. On the bus maybe there's a bully, and if they just did a play where they're running from the wolf and it resolves itself happily, the bully might not seem so bad. Children can gain a mastery of their world through their play."Bouzoukis says that how children play has changed dramatically over the years. Now it's often with a screen (television, computers, Xboxes) methods of entertainment that lack human interaction. Play, or play acting, can fill that void."Imagination, Einstein said, is more important than intelligence because when you imagine you can think outside the box," she says. "You can invent and create things that weren't there." In her book, she explains her Story Drama Method and shows parents, as well as teachers or caregivers, how to polish their skills so they can lead the children. The book also includes nine stories that can be acted out, and guidelines for each."They don't need scripts or props," she says. "If you don't use (a script), they can make it more personal, they can come up with their own words."The method, she says, "works very well because when children engage in play, that's how they communicate, how they come to understand their world. Dramatic play is just an advanced form of play."Here are some highlights of the Story Drama Method from "Encouraging Your Child's Imagination: AGuide and Stories for Play Acting:"The basics: Achild or children, the ability to tell a story, and a private place to rehearse. Classic stories work well because kids are familiar with them. Narrator: An adult, or even an older sibling, can take this role. Duties involve reading the story for the kids, acting it out, then helping them choose the part they want to play. During the performance, the narrator keeps things moving by covering entrances and exits ("Then the elephant came in") and directing the group. Bouzoukis's book offers narrator tips. "I start many stories with all the children asleep. Children love to pretend to be asleep, and it helps with crowd control."Roles: Kids can take on any role. If someone wants to be a cat but there isn't one in the story, the narrator can add a cat. "Let them be what they want to be. Bend the casting," she says. "Alittle boy might want to be the mom. We've had that. They giggle. We stop the class from giggling and tell them that anybody can be a mom, and we take it from there. Kids like to explore other roles when they're young. It's healthy for them to try to walk in other people's shoes, so to speak."Costumes: Full outfits aren't necessary and can get in the way. "The children can use more of their imagination if they have just a hat," Bouzoukis says.Public performances: A child will benefit whether the play is acted out casually or as a performance for others. Bouzoukis says kids seem to get more out of a full performance: the curtain call, parents and siblings in attendance, video cameras running, etc. But if it's a full performance, keep the crowd small for younger childrenNew book shows benefits of play acting for kidsMcClatchy-TribuneFAMILY LIFE LIVING BRIEFSSave-A-Turtle needs surveyorsTurtle nesting season begins April 15 in the Florida Keys, and Save-A-Turtle is looking for volunteer nesting surveyors for numerous beaches.
