Hector Hernandez, 3 7 maintained his innocence, and said the girls, now 13 and 1 7 years old, made up the accusations at the prompting of their mother, whom Hernandez said was jealous because he was involved in a new relationship. Hernandez said the victims mother had threatened him numerous times in the past that he would pay somehow if he ever left her. "I didn't touch no kids. [ The mother ] know this," Hernandez told Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia. "She threatened me, she carried it out. She did it." Prosecutors say Hernandez molested the girls several times between January 2000 and May 2005. "What he did to these children was abhorrent," said Assistant State Attorney Terri Hunnewell, who prosecuted the case. "And he did it over and over again." Hernandez was arrested in August 2010 after the girls reported the sexual assaults to Monroe County Sheriff'sHernandez proclaims innocence but judge not swayed in abuse caseBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comKEY LARGOSee Hernandez,2A AMonroe County grand jury will be empanelled this week to investigate the theft of county-owned iPads and iPhones. However, its work will be delayed because telecommunications giant AT & Thasn't produced records that need to be presented to the panel, which can hand up criminal indictments and issue recommendations on the matters it probes. The State Attorney's Office has subpoenaed AT & Tfor billing and technical information in an effort to match specific iPads and iPhones with the people that have them. "We still don't have the material we need," State Attorney Dennis Ward said. "They've got until the 20th" to comply with the subpoena. Lisa Druckemiller, the county's former technical services administrator, stands accused of stealing the electronics at least four dozen total and then selling them, including to county employees. County Administrator Roman Gastesi has admitted paying Druckemiller cash for two iPads and two iPhones. Senior systems analyst Hank Kokenzie admitted paying cash for three iPads and two iPhones. Assistant State Attorney Mark Wilson, who handles public corruption cases, said the current 21-member grand jury's term, six months, expires Tuesday. "We've got a whole new group coming in on Tuesday," Ward said, "and we'll select them from that." Of the 21, 15 comprise a quarum, and only 12 votes are needed to issue an indictment. Druckemiller said she's unfairly the sole focus of the ongoing legal probe.Also in the mix is Deputy County Administrator Debbie Frederick. Druckemiller allegedly ran up $20,000 on Frederick's credit card without permission, although both maintain that's a personal matter and unrelated to the technology situation. The iPads and iPhones involved are conservatively valued around $15,000. Druckemiller, a 31-year county employee, resigned Feb. 24 ; she earned $ 7 5,489 annually.21 people to investigate county theftBy SEAN KINNEY skinney@keynoter.comIPHONE/IPAD INVESTIGATIONG ran d ju ry to b e seate d Candidate: Washington is broken'ALower Keys businessman has launched his campaign for the newly created congressional District 26, which takes in the Florida Keys and western MiamiDade County. Douglas Walker, 7 1, is the former owner of the Oceanside Marina (now King's Pointe Marina) in Key West and still holds an interest in manufacturing and realestate concerns. "This is a great country but we have some deep and serious problems," Walker said Thursday. "Politicians have become so polarized in different directions that no one is working on solutions," said Walker, a resident of the gated Shark Key community. "We have to come together to fix things." He filed papers with the state Division of Elections on April 5 to run as a Republican. The only other filed candidate for District 26 is Erik Borgstrom of Largo, also a Republican. Walker was moved to mount his first-ever campaign for office after researching issues on the nation's budget deficit and complex tax laws. That resulted in his eightpage proposal for federal term limits, a balanced budget, graduated flat income tax and campaign laws to keep corporations from making massive donations to candidates. "I'm a rookie at politics but not at managing a business and creating jobs," he said. "Washington is broken.

In a 14page ruling, Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones rejected claims presented by Overton's appellate lawyers at a January hearing as "absolutely baseless" and "devoid of merit." Overton, now 56, has been on Florida's death row since being convicted 13 years ago for the 1991 murders of Michael and Susan "Missy" MacIvor and their unborn child during a break-in at the family's Tavernier home. The "court finds that evidence establishing the defendant's guilt remains overwhelming," Jones wrote in his ruling. In the latest of multiple appeals from the horrific murder, Overton's lawyers argued at a Jan. 24 hearing: That Sandra Shaw, a former part-time employee of a private investigator, could provide testimony that her exboss had been watching theDeath sentence for homicides still standsIN THE COURTSSee Overton,2A OVERTON By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comFerro release?The attorney for Nicholas Ferro,whose murder trial resulted in a hung jury,is seeking a bond hearing.Story, 4ASpill responseKeys officials say if the oil drilling off Cuba results in a spill,they're more than ready.Story, 6ABy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com

Despite the feedback from groups largely made up of district personnel, Jara and board members don't have the appetite to raise taxes, which could be done only with the approval of voters via referendum. Aside from a lack of willingness, even if voters in the next countywide election in August approved an increased tax rate, it wouldn't take effect until the next year, meaning the $6.2 million in reductions now being considered would still go forward for fiscal year 2012-13, beginning on July 1. "We're going to discuss it at the board table," Jara said, "but I don't think raising taxes is the answer. I think the answer is the rightsizing of the district." Jara has increasingly used the words "right-sizing" the past few weeks, particularly when discussing the planned firing of 40 teachers to save nearly $3 million. School Board Vice Chairman Andy Griffiths agrees the district is "overstaffed," but said comments from the town-hall meetings aren't necessarily indicative of the total electorate. "You go to these meetings and everybody feeds off these comments and energy, but there's a lot of people that aren't in those meetings," he said. "Let's just hang in there. This year is going to be the worst." Board Chairman John Dick says "misinformation" came up in the meetings, particularly that school administrators have been immune to years of budget reductions. Rather, with the budget that takes effect on July 1, the past three district budgets have seen a combined $19 million in cuts. The current budget is $82.3 million. "With all these town-hall meetings, people come in saying all sorts of stuff far from the facts," Dick said, "trying to stir up trouble." Dick, drawing on information compiled by the state Department of Education, said that in the 2005-06 school year, there were 65 administrators and 617 teachers; now the corresponding figures are 40 and 602, he said. "People talk about how all of this has been done on the backs of teachers these are facts." As for raising taxes: "We're going to have to do what we've got to do. We'll already have accomplished the reduction" by the time a tax referendum could be approved and go into effect. Jara projects $78 million in revenue for the coming year compared to $83 million in estimated expenses. That $5 million shortfall could reach more than $7 million, Jara said, factoring in variables like charterschool enrollment and the percentage of reserves desired by the School Board. In addition to the teacher positions, cuts proposed include: $1,671,192 by curtailing health benefits to retired employees when they reach age 65. $1.2 million by continuing the mandatory furloughs for all staff. $600,000 by outsourcing the Transportation Department.Debate swirls on how to fix budget problemBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Applications roll in for schools chiefMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS A22-person committee charged with helping the Monroe County School Board choose the next School District superintendent met for the first time this week, and there already are 15 candidates who've applied. Mike Puto, a former Marathon city manager and county commissioner, was elected to chair the committee at a Wednesday meeting in Key West. Kathy Hoffman, executive director of the Big Pine Academy charter school, is the vice chairwoman. The deadline for applications is May 11, with an Aug. 1 start date. The committee is set to turn over a short list of about five candidates to the School Board by May 31. The first applicant was Superintendent Jesus Jara, appointed to head Keys public schools last year by Gov. Rick Scott. He succeeded former Superintendent Joseph Burke, himself an appointment by then-Gov. Charlie Crist in 2009. Burke left last summer to head Lee County schools in Southwest Florida. In the Keys, he had replaced Randy Acevedo when Acevedo was charged with felony official misconduct. Crist removed Acevedo, since convicted, from office. Acevedo was the Keys' last elected superintendent. In a 2010 referendum, voters decided to let the School Board hire the school system's top official. Jara earns $135,000 annually; the board is considering a three-year contract for whoever is selected to lead the schools. The other applicants are: Wayne Alexander, assistant principal of Grasso Technical High School in Groton, Conn. Ronald Bolandi, interim superintendent of Edison Township Public Schools in Edison, N.J., from July 2010 until February 2011. Benjamin Bragg, principal of Thomas Cairo Middle School in Charleston, S.C. Joanne Calabro, online professor of education at Argosy University in Pittsburg, Pa. Alexander Carter, principal of Telluride (Colo.) High School from 2007 to 2011. Francis DeStefano, a senior consultant at the private company Leadership Matters in New York City, N.Y., and former deputy chief academic officer of Baltimore (Md.) public schools. Arthur Garner Jr., head principal of Westwood Middle School in Grand Rapids, Mich. Luis Gonzalez, superintendent of the Central Dauphin School District in Harrisburg, Pa. Shannon Goodsell, superintendent of Tahlequah Public Schools in Tahlequah, Okla. Randall Henion, who runs executive coaching and consulting firm Henion & Associates in Lexington, N.C. Irma Miller, an educational consultant for Academic School Turnaround in Little Rock, Ark. Peter Taylor, assistant dean of academic affairs at the University of CaliforniaSan Francisco. Karla Van Winkle, principal of Washington Elementary in East Chicago, Ind. Jerri-Lynn Williams, from 2009-2011 a program specialist for Beecher Community Schools in Mount Morris, Mich. Wayne Blanton, executive director of the Florida School Boards Association, is helping facilitate the search. He's being paid $8,000 for his services and membership in the statewide organization costs $15,000 annually.

That a former Monroe County inmate had been improperly rewarded by investigators and homicide detectives for his "jailhouse informant" testimony against Overton. That same inmate, James Pesci, was branded as a liar by the Monroe County State Attorney's Office in a separate proceeding seven years after Overton's conviction. Jones dismissed allegations that law-enforcement officials had taken Pesci out drinking and arranged for him to have sex in return for his testimony as "completely fallacious." Pesci had claimed in an unrelated 2006 action involving a sexual-battery conviction that he received special treatment in exchange for his testimony against Overton. However, Pesci recanted that story at the January hearing. He testified "the testimony he provided at the Overton trial was truthful and that he was never provided sex, alcohol or drugs" to give it, Jones wrote. Without any evidence or supporting testimony for the alleged Pesci binge, Jones said the claim of improper rewards is "absolutely baseless." Shaw, the private investigator's employee, didn't contact Overton's defense lawyers until 2005, after she saw a television program on the MacIvor murders. Jones said there is no indication that law enforcement knew of her existence, so the state did not withhold evidence from the defense. In any event, the judge wrote, Shaw's belief that her former boss somehow may have been involved amounts to "sheer speculation" that would be inadmissible as uncorroborated hearsay in any trial. Overton, a service-station clerk who moonlighted as a burglar, was linked to the crimes after detectives obtained a DNAsample from his blood while he was in custody in November 1994 on a burglary conviction. Appeals he filed in 2005 and 2007 also were rejected. He's one of three people from Monroe County on Florida's Death Row. From Overton,1A

Geotis is throwing his hat in the ring for a seat on the Marathon City Council in November. The former deputy city manager and ports manager of four years told the Keynoter on Thursday he picked up his paperwork from the Monroe County Supervisor of Elections office in Marathon and intends to file within days. For months, Geotis has been considering a run for council but said he didn't want to rush the decision. He worked with the city from February 2005 through January 2009, when then-City Manager Clyde Burnett eliminated his job. "It's a very serious commitment and I wanted to make sure my wife was OK with it, and the folks asking me to come on board are OK with it. I'm looking forward to it and I think it's time, but I didn't want to make a half-hearted commitment," he said. Geotis joins Larry Shaffer, who ran in 2004 and 2010, as the only declared candidates for three open seats. Shaffer filed with the Elections Office in late January. Geotis said he wants to be involved in the policymaking aspect of city government, pointing to the city's concerns with how $50 million in state sewer grant funding will be divided. The council discussed the issue at Tuesday's regular meeting. "We needed to have the sewers go in, but we need to maintain that we're supposed to be getting money that's legislatively ours," he said. Geotis said he doesn't have a "huge agenda" but wants to be involved. "I'd like to see us spend a little more time on grassroots things like the city beautification. We always end up on U.S. 1 but I'd like to see us do more in the communities," he said. "I'd like to see us prioritize money and where we want it spent." Geotis headed Independence Cay, which is Middle Keys transitional housing and a soup kitchen, after leaving the city, but works now as a fishing columnist and grants writer for local nonprofit groups. He also published a book titled "Florida Keys Fish Stories." Geotis twice applied to be Marathon city manager. He lost out to Burnett in 2008 and current Manager Roger Hernstadt in 2010. There will be at least one change on the council this election cycle, as Mayor Pete Worthington is termlimited out after serving three consecutive two-year terms and incumbents Dick Ramsay and Ginger Snead are up for re-election, but each said they haven't decided whether to run. "I haven't made any decisions yet, but good luck to C.J. We still have a while to go, so we'll see," Snead said. "I've been encouraged by a large representation of the community to run and I promised everyone I'll make decision by the end of May," Ramsay said. The general election is Nov. 6. Council elections are at-large, meaning the top three vote getters will be elected.Grassroots' issues drive his campaignBy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON GEOTISOffice investigators. He has been in county jail ever since on $950,000 bond. At Friday's sentencing, Garcia said he was not swayed by Hernandez's insistence of innocence. Garcia told Hernandez that the girls'testimony during the March trial was credible, and that other evidence prosecutors presented including letters Hernandez purportedly wrote about the crimes proved his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. "Those letters you wrote were disgusting," Garcia told Hernandez. Garcia gave Hernandez a life sentence, to be served consecutively, for each of the six counts of sexual battery by familial or custodial authority. Garcia also sentenced him to 20 years in state prison for one count of lewd and lascivious molestation. Hernandez has six prior felony convictions grand theft of more than $20,000, grand theft, burglary of a dwelling, burglary of a structure, carrying a concealed firearm and dealing in stolen property. Hunnewell said she pushed for the maximum sentence in this case based in part on Hernandez's criminal history. Michael Strickland, Hernandez's public defender, said after the hearing that he will appeal the sentences. Hernandez's mother, mother-in-law and current wife spoke on his behalf at the sentencing, all saying he is innocent. No one from the victims'side spoke. Outside the courtroom, Heather Hernandez, Hector Hernandez's wife, repeated what her husband said about the girls making up the accusations. She said the mother falsely accused another man of molesting her other two daughters in 2008. "Little girls lie, too," Heather Hernandez said. From Hernandez,1A basic system. I know how to get people together so we can compromise and figure out how to get it done," he said. "Now they're just drawing lines in the sand. We need to reach across the aisle." Walker said he wants federal term limits of three two-year terms for representatives and two six-year terms for senators. "Then they go home and work like the founders did." He also advocates a five-year waiting period before former elected officials can sell their services as lobbyists. As for taxes, a stack of the current federal codes would stand nearly 7 feet high, he said. Astreamlined tax code "would be about 3 inches high," he said. His proposed graduated flat tax for both individuals and businesses: Up to $50,000 in income, 1 percent; $50,001 to $250,000, 5 percent; $250,001 to $1 million, 10 percent; $1 million to $5 million, 15 percent; and above that, 19 percent. Deductions for individuals and corporations would be sharply limited. "No more special exemptions for The New York Times no more for Exxon," he said. "Those are gone." Walker advocates separate and transparent funding for Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Walker bought the Oceanside Marina after sailing to Key West in 1992 and developed homes on the property. He still owns a foundry, Penn-Mar Castings, in Hanover, Pa. He served in the U.S. Air Force as a radar technician during the Cold War and Cuban Missile Crisis. Walked attended the University of Baltimore after his service. He's married to Linda and father of Grant Walker and Edith Harrison. Social issues should not be a major concern of government, he said. "Awoman's body is her own business. As long as two people love each other, what difference does it make," he said. "Government needs to stay out of the way." The Keys'current congressional representative, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Miami, will run for re-election in a new district that does not include Monroe County. The area of western Miami-Dade in the new District 26 is represented by a first-term Republican, David Rivera. Rivera has not filed for re-election but is expected to seek the District 26 seat, as is Gloria Romero Roses, a Democrat from Broward County.

Rick Scott signed on March 29. Monroe County Commissioner Heather Carruthers is the Keys representative on that board and took part in a statewide conference call with other members. She said the main legal argument would be that the bill which would cost counties millions of dollars violates state constitutional requirements for financial mandates. The law strips counties of the right to dispute Medicaid claims they were allowed to deny or dispute in years past. The state Agency for Health Care Administration administers the Medicaid program, which provides health care for low-income residents. It bills counties for their portion of a patient's costs. "For the state to essentially place a financial mandate on counties, they have to have a two-thirds majority in both houses and they had a two-thirds majority in neither," Carruthers said. An amended version of House Bill 5301 was approved by the House, 7336, and by the Senate, 23-17. Both votes took place on March 9, according to the state House website. The bill could cost local governments $325 million in backlogged denied claims from the past 10 fiscal years. Monroe's portion could be as high as $3.3 million, as well as an extra $800,000 per year moving forward. "From the outset, we've said that local taxpayers shouldn't be forced to pay for Tallahassee's accounting errors," said Chris Holley, executive director of the Florida Association of Counties. "And to ensure that they are not, we will be pursuing legal action." Who exactly the lawsuit would target still isn't known; association attorneys are investigating that. Carruthers said the decision to sue was unanimous among the board, which includes a commission member from all 67 counties. "It's too important an issue not only for immediate consequences, but for the precedent that it sets. No one pays a bill without checking to see the charges are legitimate," she said. Now it's up to her fellow County Commission members whether to join the FAC lawsuit. Pasco, Polk, Manatee and Leon counties have voted to join.County likely to join lawsuitIt would aim to reverse billing lawBy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMEDICAID KeysNet.com Keynoter 4A Saturday,April 14,2012 FWC photo by BOBBY DUBEThe main building at the old Estes Fish Camp now the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's Whale Harbor station at mile marker 83.4 comes down on March 28 with FWC Lt.Keith Barcomb making the ceremonial first strike.The building,believed to be around 80 years old,had deteriorated beyond repair before the FWC acquired the waterfront property about a decade ago,an agency spokesman said.The site provides dockage and access to Florida Bay and the Atlantic Ocean for FWC patrol boats.A permanent building is planned.TIME TO GO Ferro to seek release on bailAn attorney for Nicholas Ferro, who's charged with second-degree murder in the 2008 stabbing death of Key Wester Marquese Butler, anticipates a bond hearing for his client will be scheduled sometime next week. Ferro, 25, from Hollywood in Broward County, was tried on the charge in March but the jury couldn't reach a verdict. Monroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlin declared a mistrial on March 21, the third day of deliberations. Prosecutors say they'll seek a new trial although they haven't filed paperwork indicating that. Ed O'Donnell Jr., who along with his father Ed O'Donnell Sr. represents Ferro, said he believes Ferro will be released on bond considering the mistrial. "There's a better chance," he said Friday. "If there hasn't been a conviction after a jury trial, the obvious argument is [prosecutors] don't have evidence beyond a reasonable doubt." Ferro is accused of stabbing to death Butler, 23, on Oct. 31, 2009, during the annual Fantasy Fest. Evidence and testimony presented at trial indicated a street fight involving two groups of young men. Ferro claims self-defense. Miami-Dade County assistant state attorneys Breezye Telfair and Miesha Darrough are prosecuting because staff with the Monroe County State Attorney's Office has ties to the Butler family. In the aftermath of Audlin's declaration of a mistrial, Telfair raised allegations of jury tampering and said she would investigate. One juror was excused during the course of the two-week proceeding after she claimed to feel intimidated by a Butler family member who she said had done work at her home. Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office spokesman Ed Griffith, asked the disposition of Telfair's investigation into jury tampering, said, "We really do not discuss issues related to ongoing investigations."Second murder trial appears in the offingBy SEAN KINNEY skinney@keynoter.comIN THE COURTS FERROGriffiths gets two election opponentsDistrict 2 Monroe County School Board member Andy Griffiths, making a bid to win a sixth consecutive fouryear term, this week drew two challengers.

Administrator Roman Gastesi is scheduled to seek direction for what will be a fifth request for proposals to lease or purchase the Maloney Avenue property at Wednesday's County Commission meeting in Key West. "What's different this time around is we're going to allow presentations as part of the proposals. We can have a better understanding of what the folks proposing want to do and have some dialogue," he said. Presentations were previously not allowed but the Legislature made changes to public-records law and the Sunshine Law governing open government. "I hope that will help. The proposals have gotten better and the last time, we were close. Hopefully we'll be able to make a decision," Gastesi said. Often referred to as an albatross by the current County Commission, thenCommissioner Dixie Spehar led the effort to purchase and use the property as public waterfront in 2006. The deal was finalized in November 2006 for $3.13 million, but it's lain dormant since. According to the Monroe County Property Appraiser's Office, the Hickory House property was assessed at just $659,446 when the county bought it. The property is valued at $996,995 today. Wednesday's meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. at the Harvey Government Center.By RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comSTOCK ISLANDDOT: Show why stations can't changeThe Florida Department of Transportation says it needs more information before a decision can be made on the legality of 29 above-ground sewer pump stations on Grassy Key. DOTChief Engineer Thomas Byron requested the material in an April 5 letter to city Community Services Director Susie Thomas. The deadline for the city to provide it is April 20. On Feb. 14, Weiler Engineering Corp., the city's sewer construction partner, filed a second request with DOTfor an exemption to use DOT's right of way for the stations, installed as part of Marathon's sewer system. The first request was denied on Sept. 13. Jordan Salinger, a permits coordinator with DOTsubcontractor Transfield Services, said a decision would be made by May 15. Many residents are unhappy with what Salinger has said are, according to DOTguidelines, illegal pump stations. There are 29 along an approximately twomile stretch of U.S. 1 starting near mile marker 57. Byron said in his letter to Thomas that to process the second exemption request, "we need additional information from you describing why it is not practicable to do all of the following:" Lower the manhole covers to no more than 4 inches above the roadside grade. Remove the bollards (bright yellow posts protecting each pump station). Reduce each lift station's volume to less than 80 cubic feet. Utilize manhole covers that support a 16,000-pound single-axle load. Move the electric service connections and poles as close to the right of way line as practical. Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay questioned Weiler Project Manager Ed Castle about the situation during Tuesday's City Council meeting. "In our talks with DOT, they're concerned with the residents'concern for aesthetics and all issues out there. Our conversations with Tallahassee at this point are leaning toward some modifications and removal of the bollards, but that's the information we're gathering," Castle said. Castle also told the council those modifications could financially impact the city. "I would say it depends on the work being done, but potentially yes," he said.Initial look is that now, they're illegalBy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON

It reportedly was popular with members of the military and was reportedly a raucous place.CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALGet informed before votingLETTERS TO THE EDITORGuns make all of us saferI write in response to your April 7 story, "Keys 2nd in carry permits," a piece that uses awkward innuendo to connect the dots between the Trayvon Martin shooting, Florida's gun laws and factual error to imply wrongful behavior on the part of shooter, George Zimmerman. More specifically, Reporter Michael Peltier described Zimmerman as a convicted felon with a permit to carry a concealed weapon, a violation of both state and federal law that would have resulted in Zimmerman's immediate arrest. To his credit, Peltier quoted state Sen. Joe Negron (R-Stuart), who stated: "I don't think we should use the Trayvon Martin tragedy, and it is a tragedy, to make changes to either Stand Your Ground or Florida statutes as they relate to concealed weapons." Sen. Negron obviously understands that the benefits of Florida's concealed carry laws far outweigh the risks, and should not be compromised by a single incident. Florida Division of Licensing document "Concealed Weapon/Firearm Summary Report" supports this position. Specifically, from Oct. 1, 1987 to Jan. 21, 2011, Florida issued 1,944,284 concealed carry permits. The number revoked after licensure for the misuse of firearms was 168, a rate of .00009. While Americans routinely apply riskbenefit analysis to medical procedures, pharmaceuticals, investment decisions, etc., these sound principles are seldom applied to firearms. What, you may ask, are the benefits associated with firearms ownership and concealed carry? Kary Kleck, a criminologist at Florida State University, estimates that 2.5 million crimes a year, or 6,849 per day, are prevented by armed citizens in the U.S. Based on Florida's percentage of the population (6.1 percent), it is safe to assume that nearly 150,000 crimes are prevented by armed Florida residents annually. Additional statistics that support concealed carry appear in the Department of Justice's National Crime Victimization Survey 2004-008. These data indicate that an average of 3,025,320 Americans are violently victimized each year, 2,034,420 outside their homes and 990,900 in their homes or lodging. Furthermore, studies concerning police response to emergency 911 calls indicate homeowners cannot depend on the police to protect them from in-home attacks even when short response times are possible. With respect to victimizations occurring outside the home, unless the police witness an attack, they are helpless to prevent homicides, rapes or other felonious assaults. Access to a firearm, both inside and outside the home, is not only an individual's best option; it's often his or her only option. Ed Zindel Islamorada Editor's note: George Zimmerman has been charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.Life's not always fairI had concerns with my Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority meter being defective and resulting in substantial overcharges for water over a long period of time. The FKAAhad the meter checked after a complete audit of our home and no leaks or excessive use was found. The meter was determined to be defective. The testing company said the odometer was improperly installed and could result in errors. It also said the meter was destroyed during testing and is not able to be returned. Yeah, right it's a mechanical device and should be able to be reassembled. Now the evidence is gone. We were invited to three different meetings to discuss the amount of overcharges for the 16 years this meter overcharged us. We had 12 months of time to compare and were given a little over $1,000 in a credit after we used that much less for the period. When we asked about the other years of overcharges, they concluded they have extended all the rebate options available within their guidelines. It appears you can't fight a monopoly, after all. Remember, life is good in the Florida Keys expensive and not fair, but good.

Kerry Cosme Upper Keys YMCA Key LargoSo many races make it imperative to pay attention to candidates running for Keyswide officesFour Republicans have filed to run for the Monroe County clerk post being vacated by veteran Democrat Danny Kolhage. In the District 3 School Board race, five have thrown their hats into the ring for the nonpartisan seat. Democrats, Republicans, nonaffiliated all have lots at stake this year with a power-packed ballot that's likely to set a record for contested races in the Keys. Even the Supervisor of Elections Office is involved this year, with longtime incumbent Harry Sawyer Jr. deciding not to run for another four-year term. His longtime deputy, Democrat Joyce Griffin, is in the race. Her challenger is Republican Barry Gibson, who served one four-year term on the Key West City Commission. Two County Commission seats are up this election cycle. So far, District 2 Commissioner Heather Carruthers, a Democrat, has drawn no opposition. The District 1 seat is now held by Republican Kim Wigington, who is not running for re-election. The only candidate to file so far is Kolhage, the longestserving elected Democrat in Monroe's modern political era. One of the most crowded races this year will be the sheriff's contest, where incumbent Democrat Bob Peryam is leaving office and retiring after one fouryear term. That means an open seat and that has drawn a flood of contenders: Col. Rick Ramsay, a Republican, who faces two Republican challengers, Jake Brady, a deputy, and Edwin Grove III, a State Attorney's Office investigator. Two Democrats are also in the fray: Matthew Koval and Thomas Petek, both deputies. Primary battles will be fought in August. The winners go on to the November general election. The District 3 School Board seat is being vacated by two-term incumbent Duncan Mathewson. There are five candidates so far to replace him: Michael Cunningham, Ed Davidson, Lawrence Murray, Mark Peterson and John Welsh. There are also two Mosquito Control Board seats up this year, along with those of the state attorney, public defender and county clerk. Keys voters will also see contests for the state House seat being vacated by incumbent Democrat Ron Saunders, who is running for the state Senate. If all this seems overwhelming, it emphasizes the importance of keeping informed by reading newspaper coverage on the races and the issues, attending candidate forums held in your area, and tuning in for televised debates that will be hosted by various groups this summer and fall. You can start by attending Monday's Hometown PAC candidate meet-and-greet, which kicks off at the Salute Restaurant on Higgs Beach, Key West. Each candidate will be given a few minutes to address the issues and talk with voters, starting at 5:30 p.m. Photo from DAN GALLAGHER'S 'MARATHON:1906-1960' Photo courtesy MONROE COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARYSpill would pose small threatThe U.S. Coast Guard, along with several state, federal, county and wildlife agencies, drilled this week for what for many in the Keys consider a nightmare scenario the explosion of a deepwater oil-drilling rig between Key West and Cuba. The possible situation is not far fetched. Agiant semi-submersible, Chinese-built, Italian-owned oil rig called the Scarabeo 9 recently arrived in the Florida Straits between the Keys and Cuba. Spanish oil firm Repsol is the first of several international energy companies leasing the rig to explore for oil in about 6,000 feet of water. The good news, the agencies concluded after the Thursday tabletop exercise, is that even under intense weather conditions and high seas, oil from the damaged platform would take at least a week to reach the Middle Keys by way of the Gulf Stream. And by the time the oil got here, it would result in more of a cleanup nuisance than the type of ecological disaster seen on the shores of Louisiana in the aftermath of the DeepWater Horizon/BP oil spill two years ago this week. Jim Jeansonne, scientific support coordinator with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, said that when and if the oil did arrive, it would be in the form of "mostly tar balls and patties, as opposed to liquid oil." The oil would also lose much of its toxicity because crude weathers as it moves across the ocean's surface. No oil from the DeepWater Horizon spill was ever reported to reach the Keys, but Jeansonne said if it did, it would have constituted an "almost zero threat" to the reef and ecosystem. Jeansonne said the only way his team was able to get the fictional oil to come to the Middle Keys using computer models was to calculate sustained 34-knot winds for several days coming out of the southeast. He said it would be as if a tropical storm was off the Keys on the Atlantic side and did not move for days. "The probability is low, which is good," Jeansonne said. He said the team also calculated scenarios where oil reached Key West and the Lower Keys, but he called the chances of that ever happening from a disaster on the Scarabeo 9 "even more remote." Amore threatening incident to the Keys would be for an oil tanker to be damaged as it passes through the Straits, said U.S. Coast Guard Capt. Pat DeQuattro, commander of Coast Guard Sector Key West. DeQuattro called the Straits a "maritime superhighway." "There are a lot of shipwrecks across the Keys," he said. "History tells us this can happen."Agencies drilled this week to assess responseBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comOIL DRILLINGAlbertson's closing, two groceries hiringFor 11 years known as the only 24-hour grocery store in Key West, Albertson's this week cut back operations from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. in the run-up to an April 28 planned closure. Wednesday, a liquidation sale of the inventory started at the 1112 Key Plaza store, according to company spokeswoman Christine Wilcox. The lot was packed as shoppers loaded down carts with items marked from 5 percent to 30 percent off. The store's 120 employees have been offered the opportunity to transfer to another location or receive a severance package. The chain has around 200 stores. "We're doing our best to align our associates with opportunities," Wilcox said. Two opportunities: The Winn-Dixie just down the road at 2778 N. Roosevelt Blvd. has a job fair set for 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday. Job seekers should apply at www.winn-dixie.com/ careers prior to attending. Publix at 3316 at N. Roosevelt also has a job fair Tuesday and Wednesday, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Doubletree Grand Key Resort, 3990 S. Roosevelt Blvd. Publix is under contract to buy the Albertson's. Publix spokeswoman Maria Brous confirmed the pending sale but did not address speculation that a Publix Greenwise Market, specializing in organic products, is in the works. Wilcox said Albertson's pulling out of the Key West market is part of a larger planned closure involving 12 other stores in Florida. KEY WEST By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com

WE ARE THE CONCH REPUBLIC! 4TH ENTRY FORMS Question: Ours is a 15employee Keys business that, like a lot of us, has had its ups and downs. We made a little bit of money in 2011 for the first time in a couple of years, and the wife and I were planning a little vacation up to Captiva to get away for awhile and relax. Our tax guy took those plans away from us with a very unpleasant surprise this week. Instead of the $5,000 to $10,000 our bookkeeper said we would owe the IRS, it's turning out to be more like $25,000. Something about the accrual basis that we have to be on for tax purposes. Apparently, this means we have to pay tax even though we don't have the cash to do it. Our tax guy says it's too late to do anything about it this year. Is he right? What should we do to prevent surprises like this in the future? Answer: First, make sure you are using a competent tax professional. Even very small businesses in the Keys face complex tax issues from time to time and you want to make sure your professional is up to the challenge by virtue of his or her education, training and experience. An easy way to assure this is to make sure your tax preparer has the initials CPAafter his or her name. When I lived up north, I was in general practice and responsible for all of the services my clients would need. That included audit, accounting and tax services as well as business consulting. One of the basic reasons my CPAfirm up north was so successful was that my nine partners and I guaranteed clients and prospective clients they wouldn't get your kind of surprises. What this means from the standpoint of you, the business owner, is that your books need to be accurate and up to date. Right after Halloween, call your CPAand schedule an appointment to go over how your year-end financial statements might look. In advance of this meeting, e-mail him or her a copy of your financials and any changes in your income or deductions the CPAmay not know about. Armed with this knowledge, you and your CPA can forecast your tax liability and take whatever actions needed to reduce your tax bill to the lowest level possible. Because the CPAis involved in the planning process, he or she feels more accountable when it comes time to prepare your return. What this means is that most of the time, the taxes due or refund shown on the tax return agrees with what was projected at the end of the year. Does this approach cost more money than just dropping off your tax data a few weeks before the April 15 deadline (April 17 this year)? Of course it does. But my experience is that business owners who pay for good tax advice more than get their investment back in terms of not only tax savings but quality of life. After all, who likes the kind of surprises your preparer handed you this year? Need help systems for managing your business? Larry Kendzior, CPA/ABV, is a business consultant with more than 30 years of experience helping owners address these and other complex business issues.

The council clearly doesn't like being left out but collectively decided against throwing a potential wrench in Gov. Rick Scott approving the money as part of this year's $70 billion state spending plan. He has until April 21 to do so. "The problem is we proceeded with the thing that the state ... said we needed the most, which was a sewer system. We seem like we're getting penalized," Councilman Mike Cinque said. "We can support them getting the money in the first year, but we need to send a strong message to the county and the Legislature and the governor that in the second, third and fourth year, we'll get back the money that rightfully belongs to us." The $50 million bond is part of the so-called Mayfield grant, which the state authorized in 2009 at $200 million. None of that money has been allocated, but it called for $50 million increments over four years. The state House and Senate each agreed to include a $4.8 million line item in the 2012-13 budget funding the first year's debt for the $50 million bond. It would be paid off over 20 years. Many are optimistic Scott will approve the funding because of the recent announcement that the state Cabinet will hold its May 8 meeting at Stanley Switlik Elementary School in Marathon. Tuesday, city Finance Director Peter Rosasco outlined the county's proposal, which would award Marathon $15 million less $22 million versus $38 million over the life of the $200 million than what was approved in the Mayfield grant in 2009. The county would receive $73 million versus just $53 according to the original language. "Under this proposal, the county would get almost $73 million. Also, Key West would get $23 million, which frankly I don't understand. The authorizing legislation is strictly for wastewater and the way they put this together was for stormwater, which isn't even eligible," Rosasco said. The council also pointed out that it's been providing "shovel-ready" jobs for more than four years. The county pitched the bond on creating jobs a Scott priority. The council eventually directed City Manager Roger Hernstadt to meet with county and other officials to renegotiate future allotments. "We can look at the language and see what can be done moving forward," County Administrator Roman Gastesi said.Council seeks renegotiation in years aheadBy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONCity: We want our share of sewermoney Subscriptions 743-5551

Conchs, Canes head to regionalSenior Clive Georges was first in four events, Lindsay Cowpland won two, and three other Key West High athletes won one at Wednesday's sixteam District 16-2Atrack meet at Belen Jesuit in Miami. Thirteen Conch boys and 12 Conch girls advanced to next Wednesday's regional meet at the Ansin Sports Complex in Miramar. Coral Shores High School advanced six athletes (an individual had to place in the top four to go on). Georges won the 100meter dash (10.91 seconds), the 200-meter dash (23.18), the 400-meter dash (48.96) and the triple jump (46 feet, 2 inches, the second-best mark in school history). "He was head and shoulders over everyone at the track," said Key West assistant coach Terence White. Cowpland won the shot put (33-8) and the discus throw (108-4). Shelisa Page came close to winning twice. She was first in the 100 (13.02), edging Gulliver Prep's Melanie Muller (13.13), but she got nipped by Muller in the 200 by .24 seconds. Other Conch winners were Alexa Dawson in the high jump (4-8) and Jack Gruba in the discus (120-8). And the team of Quanzell Moore, Miguel Rivera Mendoza, Nick Delorenzo and Jecori Sala was first in the 4 x 100 relay in 45.65. The Key West boys were third in the 17-event meet with 109 points (Gulliver won with 157), and the Conch girls were third with 120 points (Ransom Everglades won with 238). The Coral Shores boys and girls were both fifth. Advancing to the regional for Coral Shores were district second-place finishers Iris Dunn in the 100 hurdles (16.56); Alberto Anderson in the high jump; and the boys 4 x 100 relay team of Hever Viguera, Tim Holt, Michael Boyce and Gabe Escalante. Will Ismer, third in the discus (116-10), also advances. Other Key West boys advancing were Brock Guzman, who was fourth in the mile run in 4:45, the second-fastest time in school history; Aeschton Tomita, third in the 3200 (11:20); Jecori Sala, second in the triple jump (44-3); and Meric Edge and Eric Vinson, who were second and third, respectively, in the pole vault with vaults of 11-6 and 10-0. Two other Conch boys relay teams advanced the 4 x 400 (Guzman, Delorenzo, Sala and Rivera Mendoza), which was third, and the 4 x 800 (Guzman, Everett Wagner, Matthew Diaz and Julian Ramirez), which was also third). Other Conch girls advancing were Morgan Nelson, whose time of 13:21 was fourth in the 3200, behind winner Joanna McCoy (11:36) of Gulliver Prep; Mecca Hurst, third in the high jump (4-6); Courtnie Coleman, third in the long jump (15-10); and Reiache Johnson, fourth in the long jump (15-9). Two Key West girls relay teams advanced the 4 x 100 (Page, Coleman, Hurst and Johnson), which was second, and the 4 x 800 (Liz Czerwinski, Tristin Milliken, Morgan Nelson and Marlee Gil), which was fourth.Overall, 31 Keys athletes are advancingBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorTRACK AND FIELDBattery charged up for tourneyKey West High softball pitcher Rachel Quad pulled up to practice Thursday afternoon in an F-150 truck with "Rachel Q" imprinted on the back windshield. Her catcher and fellow senior, Leci Archer, soon arrived in a Chevy Malibu. Quad has been pitching to Archer since they were in the eighth grade, and she'll be pitching to her again Tuesday and maybe on Wednesday in the District 16-4Atournament at Gulliver Prep in Miami. The second-seeded Conchs (9-13) will play third-seeded St. Brendan at 4 Tuesday afternoon in one semifinal game, with topseed Gulliver meeting fourth-seed Coral Shores in the second game. If the Conchs win on Tuesday, they will clinch a spot in the state playoffs and meet the Gulliver-Coral Shores winner on Wednesday for the district title. Quad, who has an outgoing personality, has been on top of her game the past several weeks and recently fired a no-hitter against Marathon. "I've been running and working out," she said. "And that's made me faster." "She picked up 5 miles an hour in that Marathon game," said coach Steve Wells, who had just driven up in a white Toyota Tundra. "I've been throwing her every game and she's competed against every big team we've played. She doesn't give up and she doesn't get tired and she keeps her composure well." Wells, though, wishes that Quad would work more on her fielding, which has been erratic and caused the coach to cringe when she throws a ball to first base. Quad, 17, and Archer, 18, trust each other on the field. "We have a close relationship, a good chemistry," Quad said. "She knows what pitch to call." "When we need a good pitch, she delivers it," Archer said. "She's really aggressive and very accurate." Wells said Archer has improved behind the plate this season. "She got tired of me yelling at her how to block the plate," he said. "And her arm has improved. She's more confident throwing" out runners. It's been a big senior year for both players. Archer was on the volleyball team, Quad was on the soccer team. Archer was in the homecoming court, Quad was the homecoming queen. "Winning softball games is more of a thrill," Quad said. "I never dreamed of being homecoming queen. It was an honor but I'd rather win games, not crowns."Lady Conchs play St.Brendan at GulliverBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST SOFTBALL Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYMarathon High School senior Dwayne Ellis and his mother Andra are all smiles as the former signs a letter of intent to play basketball next year at Northland Community and Technical College in Thief River Falls, Minn.This year,Ellis became just the fifth Dolphin to score 1,000 points in his prep career and averaged 22.5 points and 8.7 rebounds per game.HIGHER LEVEL Photo by BERT BUDDEKey West softball catcher Leci Archer (left) and pitcher Rachel Quad prep in the team's locker room before practice Thursday.Lady Canes eke out a victoryAlast-second goal by junior attacker Julia Lozano gave Coral Shores High School a 15-14 lacrosse victory in a Tuesday road game at St. Andrews. The Lady Canes improved to 9-3 overall with just one regular-season game, played Friday night at Cardinal Gibbons, remaining before this week's District 25 Tournament at Coral Shores. The Hurricanes, owners of the tournament top seed after compiling a perfect 6-0 record in district play, play a 5 p.m. Wednesday semifinal against Palmetto (1-6) at George M. Barley Jr. Stadium. The district championship will be settled in a 7 p.m. April 20 game in Tavernier. Coral Shores nearly squandered a late-game lead at St. Andrews (5-10), allowing the Lady Scots to erase a six-goal Cane lead in the final eight minutes. St. Andrews tied the contest at 14-14 with 20 seconds left, but Coral Shores won the face-off draw. Lozano raced downfield to score her eighth goal of the match, and the game-winner. "An unbelievable game," head coach Mark Hall said. "There literally was one second on the clock." In a bout where every goal was needed, Sarah Blackwell and Jenn Doyle each scored three times and Diana Harris netted a solo goal. The Lady Cane defense forced a "phenomenal" 15 turnovers, Hall said. Goalkeeper Elizabeth Roa made a dozen saves.Stetson-boundStetson University's Lady Hatters squad could soon have a Florida Keys flavor to it. Coral Shores senior defender Cami Lopez this week committed to play for Stetson, in DeLand, during the Hatters'first season in the Atlantic Sun Conference. Lady Cane senior Raisa Santiesteban also will enroll at Stetson in the fall and has been invited to join the lacrosse program as a walk-on. Lozano, whose 70 goals in a dozen games have put her in the national prep lacrosse spotlight, has given a verbal commitment to Stetson head coach Nicole Moore. Stetson played as a club program this year, and moves into league play for the spring 2013 season.Boys at districtCoral Shores'boys lacrosse Hurricanes open the District 30 against Coral Reef at 5 p.m. Tuesday in Miami-Dade County.

We packed enough food for five days and filled our below-deck water storage with 75 gallons to handle galley and bathing needs. Drinking water was stored in our coolers. Food was mainly eggs, rice, beans, fruit and vegetables, with meat for the first day and freshly caught fish when my husband went spear fishing. Living self-contained made me realize how easy it is to waste water. I washed dishes and brushed my teeth more efficiently, mastered the art of the Navy shower and appreciated the value of water. Another lesson learned was when my husband worked in Africa. He lived in a house with a 1,000-gallon storage tank that would be refilled on demand. This was a luxury most local people did not have in Kigali, Rwanda. They carried five-gallon jerry cans of water on their heads from a communal well to their homes. It was humbling to see their efforts to maintain their quality of life. Living in Florida also reminds me of the importance of conserving water. Every time Lake Okeechobee's water level drops dangerously low, it makes the local evening news, since it threatens the potable water supply to millions of South Florida residents. The South Florida Water Management District determines the need for stricter water usage and the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority uses its energy-intensive desalination plant to supplement the potable water for Keys residents. When the summer rains fall around the lake in Central Florida, we all breathe a sigh of relief. Locally and globally, the competition for fresh water is high. Agriculture, food production, growing cities and industries compete for a resource that is increasingly erratic and slowly diminishing. On average, each of us drinks up to one gallon of water every day. But it takes 500 to 1,500 gallons of water to produce one person's daily food, depending on what is eaten. For example, it takes 340 gallons to produce a pound of rice and 1,857 gallons for a pound of beef. Global water consumption is expected to increase by 40 percent over the next 20 years, driven by an increasing population and a growing demand for food and meat consumption. Roughly 30 percent of the food produced worldwide is lost or wasted every year. Poor storage and transportation facilities are partly to blame. In developed countries, food is wasted by consumers unaware of the resources needed to produce it. Diets with excessive food intake are also a source of waste and a cause of growing health costs. As we approach another hot South Florida summer, consider these super-saver water tips: Limit your food waste. Eat less red meat. Choose native plants my buttonwoods provide shade, are never watered and are adapted to the climate. Fix leaking toilets you could be wasting up to 200 gallons a day. Harvest the rain; install a rain barrel. My 55-gallon barrel fills up in 50 minutes of rain. Run fewer, fuller loads in the washing machine. Stop using plastic bottled water it takes three times the water to produce. Support your local Earth Day events this month.

Mariners'Wellness Center is offering a free sixweek weight management program for overweight or obese children. The program is designed to help children attain and maintain a healthy weight and body size and become more active and fit. "Although many children and adolescents who are overweight are not physically ill, being overweight puts them at risk for more serious long-term health issues, such as diabetes and heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and sleep apnea, as well as psychosocial difficulties such as peer teasing and depression," said James Cordell, Wellness Center manager. "We believe this program, which includes group exercises for children and nutritional consultation for children and parents, will help improve children's overall health." The free program begins April 23. Semi-weekly sessions will be held at Mariners, mile marker 91.

Learn more about how techniques and training have developed in this dangerous sport. FREE PUBLIC EVENT THE DARK REALMŽ CAVE DIVING Brew on Bay coming to Key Largo April 28 at RowellsNext weekend (April 28), beer lovers will have a wide choice of brew festivals ranging from the Royal Beer Festival in Tarleton, England, Beertopia in Hong Kong, China to Brew on the Bay in Key Largo. Save yourself the hassle of traveling overseas and check out the first-ever beer fest April 28 at Rowells Marina site, mile marker 104.5, bayside. Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Key Largo, this fun-raiser, fund-raiser hopes to emulate the success of the Key West Rotary Clubs Key West Brew Fest, which garnered several thousand happy guests last fall who quaffed more than 140 different beers. Laura Dreaver, who with her husband Ted owns the Key Largo Conch House, said craft brews are the hottest thing in the beverage field. The trend is to get away from the big beer distributors and go with small, micro-breweries. We see a big increase in sales for these craft beers,Ž she said. And judging from the number of beer festivals staged virtually every weekend somewhere in the United States, the movement is growing. The beer brewing tradition has even invaded Florida, which in the past may have been better known for distilled spirits, especially rum. But thats changing. Most Keys residents know that Jimmy Buffet is linked to Land Shark beer (which he carries in his Margaritaville restaurants) in a marketing deal with Anheuser-Busch InBev (which brews the lager in Jacksonville). But there are a halfdozen craft brewers with Florida roots who will be represented at Brew on the Bay. Dreaver, who is helping Rotary organize the event, said some with exotic names and artsy labels draw lots of attention. Swamp Ape, Native Lager and Orange Blossom Pilsner are justCraft beers take center stage at Rotary eventLAttitudes StaffKEY LARGO Brew fest fans enjoy tastings at Key Wests BrewFest,held Labor Day weekend.See Brew,6BThis Belgian film delivers emotional roller coasterThe Kid With ABike,Ž Rated PG-13, 87 min., opens April 13 at the Tropic Cinema; French, fully subtitled Nominated for the Palme dOr and winner of the Grand Prize of the Jury at Cannes last year, The Kid With ABikeŽ co-writers/directors Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne (the Dardenne brothers) have crafted a story that is heavy with the prospect of serious psychological damage to the characters, to the viewer, or maybe both. But it somehow also manages to be an upbeat film, showing the resilience of the human spirit in the face of crushing disappointment. Showing guilt, innocence, love, hate, cunning and the ease with which moral decisions can go either way, The Kid With ABikeŽ is an uneasy film that takes the viewer on an emotional roller coaster ride. Cyril is an elevenyear-old boy who has been dumped at a school/ orphanage by his father, who no longer wants the responsibility of raising a child alone. We never find out what happened to the mother. Justifiably confused and angry, Cyril goes on a desperate search for his father and lashes out at anyone who tries to stop him. The dad has changed his phone number, moved out of his apartment with no forwarding address and, maybe worst of all, has sold Cyrils beloved bicycle. We realize that his father does not want him, but Cyril stubbornly refuses to believe that he has been abandoned. His search leads him into unexpected territory, with equally unforeseen consequences and along the way Cyril makes both enemies and friends, some of whom figure prominently later in the film. The outcome of Cyrils quest is quietly devastating, but the Belgian directors treat it as just another moment in life. And that is the beauty of a Dardenne brothers film: the story on the screen is presented matterof-factly and momentous events are portrayed as they are in real life, with no dramatic music or cheering crowds they just happen. The brothers use movie effects sparingly to highlight their films, and it is up to the viewer to follow the narrative and decide what is important. Thomas Doret plays the lead with a brooding but optimistic approach and his character convincingly earns the apt nickname Pitbull.Ž Though he speaks sparingly throughout the film, Doret manages to convey the complex thoughts and emotions of an eleven-year-old boy with great effect. The one bright side in young Cyrils life is a woman whose life he literally crashes into.

We are never shown what her motivation might be for agreeing to care for this strange boy, who puts her through hell. And, yet she cares more for him than her boyfriend. It is one of the few weak points of the film. The cinematographer does a good job of following Cyril all over town on his recovered bicycle and the viewer may feel winded from all the pedaling. But the lighting is a little inconsistent, going from really dark to really bright without allowing time for our eyes to fully adjust. The subtitles were sometimes a little difficult to read due to the lighting issues. The pat ending is a bit disappointing because the boys quick transition from troublemaker to caring child seems contrived. I would almost bet that scenes detailing that evolution, for some reason, were left on the cutting room floor. Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne have explored working-class society in their previous works, including RosettaŽ (1999) and The ChildŽ (2005), and with each successive film, they show us their improving skills as artists and treat us to a sharper and clearer vision of life. They avoid over-romanticizing their characters and their movies, even when dealing with depressing themes and always leave the viewer with a glimmer of hope and optimism. The Kid with a BikeŽ follows the same successful pattern. I recommend this film from the Dardenne brothers and Im looking forward to their next one. Sharper, clearer vision of lifeFrom Kid,1BPedaling as an art form for April 19 WalkaboutArtists in the Morada Way Art District have a special theme planned for Aprils Third Thursday Walkabout, April 19.

That led to a European trip, a chance to have the Boston brewer batch his recipe for limited release, and a lifelong passion about beer.

Laura Dreaver, who w i th he r husban d Ted owns the Key Largo Conch House, said craft brews are the hotte st thing in the be verage field. "The trend is to get awayfro m t he big beer distributors and go wit h small, micro-b rew eries. We se e a big increase in sales for these craft beers," she sa i d. And judging from the numbe r of beer festivals staged v irtuall y every weekend some w here in the United States, the movement is growing. The be er bre wing traditio n has even invaded Florida, which in th e past may have been better known for dist illed spirit s, especially rum. But that's changing. Most Keys resident s know that Jimmy Buffet is linked to Land Shark beer (wh ich he carries in his Margarit av i lle restaurants) in a marketing deal with Anheuser-Busch InBev (which brews the l a ger in Jacksonville).

For more reader-submitted photos,go to www.KeysNet.com/photos.THE EYES HAVE IT AKey Largo man was sentenced Friday to six consecutive life sentences for repeatedly raping the two young daughters of his former live-in girlfriend over a five-year period. Hector Hernandez, 3 7 maintained his innocence, and said the girls, now 13 and 1 7 years old, made up the accusations at the prompting of their mother, whom Hernandez said was jealous because he was involved in a new relationship. Hernandez said the victims mother had threatened him numerous times in the past that he would pay somehow if he ever left her. "I didn't touch no kids. [ The mother ] know this," Hernandez told Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia. "She threatened me, she carried it out. She did it." Prosecutors say Hernandez molested the girls several times between January 2000 and May 2005. "What he did to these children was abhorrent," said Assistant State Attorney Terri Hunnewell, who prosecuted the case. "And he did it over and over again." Hernandez was arrested in August 2010 after the girls reported the sexual assaults to Monroe County Sheriff'sHernandez proclaims innocence but judge not swayed in abuse caseBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comKEY LARGOSee Hernandez,2A AMonroe County grand jury will be empanelled this week to investigate the theft of county-owned iPads and iPhones. However, its work will be delayed because telecommunications giant AT & Thasn't produced records that need to be presented to the panel, which can hand up criminal indictments and issue recommendations on the matters it probes. The State Attorney's Office has subpoenaed AT & Tfor billing and technical information in an effort to match specific iPads and iPhones with the people that have them. "We still don't have the material we need," State Attorney Dennis Ward said. "They've got until the 20th" to comply with the subpoena. Lisa Druckemiller, the county's former technical services administrator, stands accused of stealing the electronics at least four dozen total and then selling them, including to county employees. County Administrator Roman Gastesi has admitted paying Druckemiller cash for two iPads and two iPhones. Senior systems analyst Hank Kokenzie admitted paying cash for three iPads and two iPhones. Assistant State Attorney Mark Wilson, who handles public corruption cases, said the current 21-member grand jury's term, six months, expires Tuesday. "We've got a whole new group coming in on Tuesday," Ward said, "and we'll select them from that." Of the 21, 15 comprise a quarum, and only 12 votes are needed to issue an indictment. Druckemiller said she's unfairly the sole focus of the ongoing legal probe.Also in the mix is Deputy County Administrator Debbie Frederick. Druckemiller allegedly ran up $20,000 on Frederick's credit card without permission, although both maintain that's a personal matter and unrelated to the technology situation. The iPads and iPhones involved are conservatively valued around $15,000. Druckemiller, a 31-year county employee, resigned Feb. 24 ; she earned $ 7 5,489 annually.21 people to investigate county theftBy SEAN KINNEY skinney@keynoter.comIPHONE/IPAD INVESTIGATIONG ran d ju ry to b e seate d Candidate: Washington is broken'ALower Keys businessman has launched his campaign for the newly created congressional District 26, which takes in the Florida Keys and western MiamiDade County. Douglas Walker, 7 1, is the former owner of the Oceanside Marina (now King's Pointe Marina) in Key West and still holds an interest in manufacturing and realestate concerns. "This is a great country but we have some deep and serious problems," Walker said Thursday. "Politicians have become so polarized in different directions that no one is working on solutions," said Walker, a resident of the gated Shark Key community. "We have to come together to fix things." He filed papers with the state Division of Elections on April 5 to run as a Republican. The only other filed candidate for District 26 is Erik Borgstrom of Largo, also a Republican. Walker was moved to mount his first-ever campaign for office after researching issues on the nation's budget deficit and complex tax laws. That resulted in his eightpage proposal for federal term limits, a balanced budget, graduated flat income tax and campaign laws to keep corporations from making massive donations to candidates. "I'm a rookie at politics but not at managing a business and creating jobs," he said. "Washington is broken.

In a 14page ruling, Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones rejected claims presented by Overton's appellate lawyers at a January hearing as "absolutely baseless" and "devoid of merit." Overton, now 56, has been on Florida's death row since being convicted 13 years ago for the 1991 murders of Michael and Susan "Missy" MacIvor and their unborn child during a break-in at the family's Tavernier home. The "court finds that evidence establishing the defendant's guilt remains overwhelming," Jones wrote in his ruling. In the latest of multiple appeals from the horrific murder, Overton's lawyers argued at a Jan. 24 hearing: That Sandra Shaw, a former part-time employee of a private investigator, could provide testimony that her exboss had been watching theDeath sentence for homicides still standsIN THE COURTSSee Overton,2A OVERTON By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comFerro release?The attorney for Nicholas Ferro,whose murder trial resulted in a hung jury,is seeking a bond hearing.Story, 4ASpill responseKeys officials say if the oil drilling off Cuba results in a spill,they're more than ready.Story, 6ABy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com
