Asecond semi-finalist vying to be the next Key West city manager has dropped out of contention in as many weeks. Phillip Smith-Hanes, administrative officer for Humboldt County, Calif., notified the citys search consultant, Colin Baezinger, in an April 21, e-mail. After our conversation on Tuesday, conversations with other managers, additional research into the community, and review of the background materials, I have decided not to pursue the opportunity in Key West at this time. I am withdrawing from the process....Last week, Andrew Mair, administrator of Mercer County, N.J., pulled out, citing members of the Key West City Commission circumventing the search process by adding four candidates to a short list of eight identified by a sevenperson search committee.Meanwhile, John DAgostino, another candidate picked by the committee, is under fire in Abington, Mass., where he is town manager, because applying for the Key West job apparently violates his contract, according to published reports.An Abington-area newspaper reported DAgostinos comments on his three-year contract: I signed it so Im going to have to live it through. How unfair is that, for three years I cant test my value or worth? DAgostino apparently wanted to gauge his marketability rather than actually take the Key West job if selected, saying he had no plans to travel to the Keys. Reached by the Keynoter DAgostino called the Key West job his dream position but said, At this time, I have too many personal hurdles to cross, making a move impossible. City Manager Jim Scholl, who earns $180,000 annually, is leaving after five years; his contract expires July 1.

Alengthy process to review regulations with an eye on possible changes ramps up this week for the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and Keys national wildlife refuges. This is the start, sanctuary Superintendent Sean Morton said Friday. Weve heard about a lot of different issues over the years. This is the time to address them. The marine sanctuary has released dates for its initial hearings in June, but Morton noted, People can comment right now if they want. In a related series of meetings, four environmental groups jointly hold open meetings this week to promote public input on marine and backcountry island rules, according to The Nature Conservancy. This weeks sessions provide history and background of the current rules for the sanctuary and refuges, and will focus on the process to gather ideas about what is working, whats not, what needs tweaking and what entirely new ideas people have for management and regulations. Lower Keys areas to be reviewed are the Key WestTheyre starting the process to revamp regulationsENVIRONMENTBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgDaniels files for City CouncilLongtime Marathon resident Bill Daniels filed Wednesday to run for the Marathon City Council. The former Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board member, elected in 1988 and 1994 in different districts, said the time is right to try his hand at city politics. Ive lived here all my life and plan on living here for the rest of my life. Overall, the council and the employees have done a great job but theres always room for more improvement, said Daniels, 49. Daniels, a married father of three young children, said his financial background and community involvement would serve him well on the council. Hes been involved with numerous governmental committees and civic organizations over the years. In 1985, Daniels started with Marathon Bank, which was later eaten up by Bank of America, and later worked for Marine Bank of the Florida Keys, now part of Centennial Bank, until 2003. He owned a contracting business until November 2010, when he joined Capital Bank as a vice president and commercial lending officer. Daniels said the economic recession will eventually turnBanker:Growth in city needs to be managedBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON DANIELSSee Daniels,5A Bees invade Key Largo mans yardThe bees vanished as suddenly as they appeared in a Key Largo waterfront yard Monday. Its a mystery, homeowner Travis Wilkerson said. Ive never seen anything like that. Wilkerson, who takes pride in the renowned collection of palm trees he nurtures in his bayside yard on Blackwater Sound, was startled to discover a swarming mass of bees in bulbous form beneath the frond of a sand palm. There must have been 10,000 bees in what he described as a really big hive about 7 feet off the ground. Concerned they might be potentially aggressive Africanized bees, Wilkerson kept his distance and sought advice from neighbors. He then ran some errands and, when he returned a few hours later, the bees had disappeared. There was no sign of a hive. Its like someone came into the yard and took them away, Wilkerson said. I thought maybe somebody called a beekeeper. I checked all around and they werent anywhere, he said. Big Pine Key professional beekeeper David Lewis, owner of Florida Keys Honey and Bees, said the incident sounds like a large swarm of honeybees in the process of absconding, or relocating. There probably was no hive to find, he said.When a hive is successful and grows really large, it can split and divide like a cell, Lewis said. Honeybees have a very advanced social hierarchy....

Trustees of Florida Keys Community College plan to enter into negotiations with the institutions next president this weekend. The three finalists to replace retiring President Larry Tyree pitched themselves and answered general questions at a series of townhall meetings Friday on the Stock Island camps. Trustees were to interview all three in two-hour sessions today. Agroup of about 50 people, largely college faculty and staff, gathered at the Tennessee Williams Theatre on Friday to listen as the three prospective presidents answered identical questions from Faculty Council President Dawn Ellis, who then opened up the floor for questions. Although the candidates hesitated to offer specific plans for FKCC, uniformly citing the need to understand the community better, trustees agreed in a short session Friday to get down to the nitty-gritty during todays sessions. The three finalists are:George Bishop, vice president for academic affairs and learning support at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City.Jonathon Gueverra, chief executive of the Community College of the District of Columbia in Washington D.C.Allen Witt, president of Hillsborough Community Colleges SouthShore Campus in Ruskin, south of Tampa.Bishop, discussing his leadership philosophy, commented on the centrality of connecting people. The notion that the style can be pinned down and understood and named ... thats not true. Its a question of working with people thats the business were in. We forget sometimes that what education is about, particularly higher education, is putting people in touch with people. That is the essence and core of what we do.All three candidates agreed that FKCC could leverage its unique location and course offerings, particularly in the marine sciences area, to grow enrollment.We have a lot of opportunities, Gueverra said, so we have to find ways to serve who we have locally and do that really, really well. But theres absolutely nothing wrong with going outside of that to help bring in folks to support the enterprise that we have.Witt discussed his experiences growing on-campus dorm occupancy, a problem FKCC faces with its 100-bed Lagoon Landing facility. All of those things that draw millions of tourists here every year will draw students here, he said. Once you start the ball rolling, it will sputter a bit for a couple of years but once the reputation gets out there, this could easily become a major attraction.

Search committee member Todd German, in a Tuesday e-mail to board members, expressed concern.To have this happen midstream during the application process seems unfair at best. If the requirements are to be changed, how do we address these potential applicants who have considered the position and decided not to apply because they thought they did not meet the minimum eligibility requirements?It wasnt an accident, German told the K e yno te r Dick shrugged off the suggestion that the change was trying to get somebody in the job. I dont believe theres anything sneaky going on, he said. The board agreed to whats in that brochure. Im going to attempt to put a stop to it. Friday, there were 34 applicants vying for the job including current superintendent Jesus Jara, who was appointed to head Keys public schools last year by Gov. Rick Scott. Jara succeeded Joseph Burke, himself appointed by then-Gov. Charlie Crist in 2009. Burke left last summer to head Lee County schools. He replaced Randy Acevedo when Acevedo was charged with felony official misconduct in 2009.Burke left last summer to head Lee County schools in Southwest Florida.

They move like an army, each bee carrying its own resources, Lewis said. Sometimes theyll move six miles in a day, other times theyll move 20 feet. Advance scouts typically have found a new location for the hive before they move, he said.Swarming generally takes place later in the spring but a warm and dry winter with early-blooming flowers seems to have hastened the process, said Lewis, a 30-year Keys resident.Lewis recommended that residents who discover a hive on their property contact a professional to remove it rather than spray it themselves or calling a fumigator.

Council lowers some marina ratesLiveaboard Boot Key Harbor residents spoke and the city of Marathon listened Tuesday as best it could.The City Council approved three changes to rates and fees that came out of a public meeting city staff and council members held at the City of Marathon Marina on March 29. That session was called after the council raised rates in January.City Manager Roger Hernstadt told the council: They appreciated that you took the time to come out and asked me to do what I could to address as many of these [concerns] as possible. We came up with three ways to mitigate some of the fees. Those are: Establishing a dinghydockage coupon booklet for transient customers. The daily rate decreases from $22 daily to $18, provided boaters purchase five nonrefundable coupons for $90. They must be used within 30 days. Eliminating the 32-foot minimum footage for docked vessels in the canal adjacent to the marina.Establishing a discount of $15 off the summer season for year-round customers.But Hernstadt told the council he was clear with harbor residents that the city cant make further reductions and still run a first-class marina.Back in January, the council raised the daily dinghydockage rate from $13 to $22, and put in the 32-foot minimum on the hard dock.Tuesday, harbor resident Richard Bolton told the council that Boot Key residents, while still unhappy with the daily dinghy rate, are largely content with the reductions.The harbor community is appreciative the council worked with us on this issue, he said. Hernstadt told the council that we should be able to get by for two to three years.

Affordable housing isnt an issue now, but it will be again. If the market improves, the redevelopment of the mom-and-pop [hotels] is going to happen and that has to be managed properly, Daniels said. Daniels is the fourth candidate to file for three open seats on the dais. He joins two-term incumbent Ginger Snead, former city employee C.J. Geotis and two-time council candidate Larry Shaffer. Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay has said hes undecided about seeking a third term, while Mayor Pete Worthington has served three straight terms and is term-limited out. Voting is at large, meaning the top three voter-getters are elected. The general election is Nov. 6.

Ive got the time to do it and the business expertise to get things done, Rosenthal, 71, said Friday. He is running for the District 120 seat as a Democrat. With District 120 incumbent Ron Saunders opting to run for the state Senate in District 39, the race to fill the vacant House seat has drawn Rosenthal, fellow Democrat Ian Whitney, and Republicans Holly Merrill Raschein and Morgan McPherson. During his 46 years in the Keys, Rosenthal has owned and operated the Green Turtle Inn and Cannery, the Marker 88 restaurant and the Whale Harbor Restaurant and Marina. Since selling his business interests in recent years, he has stayed busy as a professional magician and volunteer historian. Im concerned about issues on the macro level and micro level, Rosenthal said. When the state slashes the education budget and then finds out it made a big mistake, thats not the right approach, he said. Rosenthal said his Keys issues include a priority focus on water-quality problems and maintaining affordable property insurance rates. Its time for a commonsense revolution, Rosenthal said. If you go too far to the left or right, you cannot move forward. You have to find a way to compromise and do business.Rosenthal ran for state representative in 1986. In the Democratic primary, he won the Upper Keys precincts but finished behind Ron Saunders and Wilhelmina Harvey in the countywide vote. In a notable 1982 race for Monroe County Commission, he lost by one vote to Republican Alison Fahrer.Rosenthal was elected president of the Islamorada Chamber of Commerce for 10 consecutive years.ELECTION 2012 ROSENTHALBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgNational Wildlife Refuge and Great White Heron National Wildlife Refuge.

There was heavy black smoke billowing from the island.Marathon Fire Chief John Johnson said its unclear how the fire started since access to Boot Key is limited.We dont know a whole lot. It was obviously a trash fire with some old construction material, he said. By the time we got out there, it was mostly extinguished or out. The shack referred to in the report likely belonged to what Johnson said is a sizable homeless population on the island. He said they were pitching in with the effort to contain the fire. There were people assisting with buckets and everything to help put out the fire. They were trying to do whatever they could to stop it, he said.MARATHON Big divide on board overtax hikeFrustration over an austere Monroe County School District budget, particularly the toll on employees who might be out of a job, boiled over Tuesday night during a contentious School Board meeting in Key West.It happened during a discussion initiated by Upper Keys board member Ron Martin exploring the feasibility of an Aug. 14 countywide referendum asking voters to raise the schools property tax.The current budget is $82.3 million; for the 2012-13 fiscal year, Superintendent Jesus Jara projects $78 million in revenue and $83 million in expenses.The tax rate is 3.8235 per $1,000 of assessed property value, meaning a $1,147 schools tax bill for the owner of a $300,000 home. To raise the rate higher, board members must peg a specific desired taxing level, then get approval from voters to levy the tax for two or four years.Referring to Jaras proposed $6.9 million in cuts, including termination of 40 teachers, Martin, a former Coral Shores High School principal, argued passionately in favor of asking voters to open their wallets, citing the effect on employee morale and operations at the school level.His position runs counter to Jaras talking point that the cuts constitute a right-sizing of the district. This thing about right sizing, Martin said, its not really what it sounds like it is. Every principal I go to, theyre wringing their hands trying to figure out how theyre going to make the school run next year.Hell, if wed have rightsized the checkbook years ago, we wouldnt be in this problem. Were talking about people again, were talking about programs and were talking about schools and children.Jara defended cutting the 40 positions, saying they arent meant to increase the low district reserve funds. The reductions in the classroom are ... really getting into the right-sizing of the district in the schools. Its not to meet a 5 percent fund balance. Im not seeing it where were cutting programs out of our schools.Board member Robin Smith-Martin made clear he doesnt support a tax referendum, but not because he doesnt think taxes shouldnt be raised but because he lacks confidence in the districts ability to manage money.I think school taxes should be doubled, he said. Anybody who thinks their school taxes are too high is a greedy bastard. People do want to support our schools but voters do not have confidence in our management ability. Andy Griffiths, the senior board member whos in his fifth four-year term an up for re-election, handicapped the chances of a referendum passing as -50 and said: We should keep our options open.I think were taking a very dangerous step because I think well lose this vote very strongly, board Chairman John Dick said. He referenced a Jan. 31 referendum voters approved that allows the district to transfer around $9 million from the capital fund to the operations fund the next four years. For more on this story, go to www.KeysNet.com .Martin pushes for referendum in AugustMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSIf tax OKd, does union get money?Among myriad issues raised when the Monroe County School Board discussed a possible tax-hike referendum on Tuesday was the possible effect on a labor dispute with unionized teachers in the Florida Keys. Board Chairman John Dick cautioned his colleagues about unforeseen consequences on the off chance a referendum, if scheduled, passes. The United Teachers of Monroe, not satisfied by two rulings from the Florida Public Employees Relations Commission in favor of the School District, has appealed the decisions to the First District Court of Appeal in Tallahassee. PERC upheld the districts position that it didnt violate a three-year employment contract by putting aside planned teacher raises and instead instituting mandatory unpaid seven-day furloughs in response to a $9 million budget shortfall in the 201011 budget cycle. The districts position is that not fulfilling the contract terms due to budget constraints is legitimate and considered in the contract. UTM argues the agreement was bargained in good faith, then breached. Dick laid out the problem if the district later this year comes into a multimilliondollar tax windfall: The teachers union has gone to PERC twice and lost. Theyre in appeals court right now. Why did they lose? Because the contract said, there was a provision in it, if you didnt have the funds ... that they have to renegotiate. You go out and you get this referendum. On the off chance you can pass it, you now have money coming into your pocket. So the answer then is, Oh, weve got the money.We could lose [the civil case] at that point. Does this affect the contract? Vice Chairman Andy Griffiths asked. Thats huge. Board member Ron Martin said if a referendum were put on the ballot and passed, Maybe we could think about honoring [the contract] again. Citing the legal opinions to date, Superintendent Jesus Jara countered, We are honoring the contract. Were technically honoring the contract, board member Robin Smith-Martin inserted, but dishonoring the teachers.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSKeynoter StaffNEWS BRIEFSUS1 Radio wins regional awardBig Pine Keyss WWUS 104.1-FM, better known as US1 Radio, has won an award for breaking news coverage among small markets in this years Radio Television Digital News Associations Edward R.

Tow companies must pay feeThe Marathon City Council approved a $100 registration fee Tuesday it hopes will curb issues with towing from private property. Council members have said they continue to receive complaints about the issue, in particular at the former Quay restaurant property at mile marker 54. Florida Keys Towing owner Bill Pruitt received permission to remove cars from the private lot, adjacent to a popular city-owned boat ramp. But some have complained about the tows. The $100 registration fee doesnt hold a lot of teeth. It would basically allow the city to remove a companys right to tow from private property if its abusing the privilege, but theres nothing in the ordinance, to be approved at a second public hearing before being enacted, that threatens to revoke a companys business license if its found to practice predatory towing. Councilwoman Ginger Snead said she heard of an incident in which a Florida Keys Towing truck attempted to tow a car while it was running and the owner was inside having lunch. Pruitt denied that and said his company is doing nothing illegal. We backed up and asked the lady to leave [the Quay property] and she gave him a [problem] and he went away and didnt try to tow her. We are not bad people, he said. She doesnt need to be eating lunch on private property where she shouldnt be anyway. It was said in the very beginning that if youre doing it right, this wont affect much. In that case, do it right, Snead said. Pruitt also alluded to the citys plan to contact the property owner, the estate of Gus Boulis, about renting the lot for parking. Boulis was murdered in Fort Lauderdale in 2001. You said youre looking into renting it and they said they never heard from you, he said. He also said Fort Lauderdale-based property manager Flagler Real Estate authorized him to tow from the lot. I do not solicit. They said they were tired of picking up garbage over there and were worried about liability. They were begging us to do it, Pruitt said. I called [estate attorney Nick Mulick] and told him who we got permission from. They got together and said you can continue towing there. In November, the council backed off approving a law that would require tow companies to accept travelers checks, credit cards and debit cards, in addition to cash, after two operators argued against the measure.It arises from tows at private lotBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Saturday,April 28,2012 7A Keynoter KeysNet.com SAVE 40% 60% OFF EVERYTHING!

According to the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, the Marathon High School student told school resource officer Sgt. Glenn Test about the alleged abuse in March. Test called the Major Crimes Unit, which sent investigators to interview the girl, age 15. She reportedly said Torna had been sexually molesting her since she was age 9 and that it happened hundreds of times.

Heres what prosecutors allege: Weiner bought a Big Pine Key house in 2005, then got assigned to Fort Myers in 2006. While living in Southwest Florida, Weiner rented his Keys house while still claiming the homestead exemption from 2007-10.Florida homeowners are allowed one homestead exemption, which allows for a property-tax break on their permanent residence. It can be claimed only when the owner lives in the house. Weiner has been with the FDLE since 1993; before that he was a Florida Highway Patrol trooper.Weiners career of 20 years is now historyIN THE COURTSKeynoter Staff POSTHUMOUS HONOR Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYRita Irwin,the wife of Marathon author and historian Dan Gallagher,who died April 20,accepts a pair of awards on his behalf at Tuesdays Marathon City Council meeting.

NEWS BRIEFSKey Westers win Academic ChallengeThe Key West High School Academic Challenge team, after five years of making it to the finalist round, won top honors at a statewide tournament last weekend in Orlando.The Commissioners Academic Challenge, hosted by the state Department of Education since 1986, divides all Florida school districts into three tiers based on enrollment, then challenges students to answer questions about language, arts, math, science, social studies, fine arts and technology.None of this would have been possible without the incredible outpouring of support from this generous community, coach Kerri McLean said. What a better way to say thank you than winning the state championships for those who supported and believed in our students. The team had to hit the streets fundraising to pay travel and entrance costs.The team members, each of whom received $500 college scholarships, are Dylan Higbie, Gwen Pearson, Justin Poon, Jason Correa, Kelly Rosch and Sherman Kaplitz.Jara sticks by plan for ACE, Keys CenterFaced with passionate criticism and poignant testimonials, Keys schools Superintendent Jesus Jara resolved to keep boys and girls separate in an alternative education program thats being drastically altered to help fill a budget gap. Going into a Thursday town-hall meeting at Key West High School, Jara had planned to combine the allgirls Keys Center Academy with the mostly male Academic Connections for Excellence under one roof at the May Sands School, both in terms of facilities and staffing, to save $700,000. Combined they cost $1.15 million to operate this year. Claudia Valladares, a senior at the Keys Center who lives independently, said without the school she would never have transitioned from her native Honduras into an American education system. Its a waste of money to put this group of girls that are trying their best to succeed ... with a group of boys that have insults for the teachers. This is not a school for me; its a family. What you want to do, its a big mistake. Afairly substantial number of kids are [at ACE] because theyre criminals, Edward Pitts, a family therapist and Keys Center volunteer, told Jara. What we have here is an extremely successful program being merged with a horrible one, Pitts said, comparing ACE, in its second year of operation, as a loony bin.The parent of a Keys Center graduate fought back tears describing his daughters battle with an eating disorder from age 13 on, along with problems like self-mutilation, depression and suicidal tendencies. If it wasnt for Keys Center Academy, I dont know what wouldve happened to her, he said. School Board member Robin Smith-Martin listened carefully and advocated for keeping the two sets of students separate, comparing the two programs to Mars and Venus. Im glad we were able to stop this train wreck from being put into motion and take a time out. ACE is already located at May Sands on United Street in Key West, while the Keys Center operates out of leased space at Florida Keys Community College on Stock Island. Jeff Arnott, adult and alternative education director for the Monroe County School District, made several suggestions for the combined program, including school uniforms, a revamped schedule and transitioning older students into adult education programs. He said the focus would be on eighth-, ninthand 10th-graders who are falling behind. The idea is to get them on track immediately and not try to catch them up at the end. Students are referred to ACE and the Keys Center for a number of reasons, including being chronically truant or disruptive; transitioning back to school from substance abuse, mental health, or court-ordered facilities; trouble transitioning from middle to high school; or in lieu of expulsion. Teen pregnancy prevention is also a major focus at Keys Center.Despite pleas, programs will be combinedBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS The breakdownMonroe County School District leaders are looking to save around $700,000 by combining the all-girls Keys Center Academy with the mostly male Academic Connections for Excellence alternative school. Superintendent Jesus Jara has argued that the district cant support paying more than $1 million to serve around 50 students.Here are some vital statistics regarding the two schools:The Keys Center has 21 students while ACE has 36, including five girls.For the 2011-12 school year,its estimated to cost $1,145,486 to educate those 57 students.Jara pegged the per-student cost at around $14,000.For the budget year starting July 1,Jara thinks he can reduce $700,000 from the alternative education budget by combining staff and resources for the two facilities.

Audlin judicial assistant Kathy Rupp confirmed the recusal, vaguely based on a potential or possible bias, prejudice, or sympathy, according to a one-page order of recusal dated April 24, signed by Audlin and filed with the court. He offered no specific explanation for his decision other than to write its based upon consideration of certain matters arising during trial of this case. Rupp said the case has been turned over to Plantation Key-based Judge Luis Garcia. Anative of Hollywood in Broward County, Ferro, 25, is accused of stabbing to death Marquese Butler, 23, on Oct. 31, 2009, during the annual Fantasy Fest. Ferros two-week trial in March ended in a mistrial after the six-person jury couldnt reach a verdict after nearly three days of deliberations. Prosecutors, who plan to retry the case, reported the verdict was 5-1 in favor of finding Ferro guilty of second-degree murder. 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 Attorneys Office has ties to the Butler family. This month, Ferros attorney, Ed ODonnell, requested a bond hearing, a date for which hasnt been set.

Facing that mandate with little to no promise of federal or state funding, the Marathon City Council had a tremendous task to undertake the design, construction and operations, and finance the payments for the citywide wastewater project. As early as July 2007, the city began holding well-advertised public hearings on initial designed construction costs as well as the recurring operating and maintenance costs. No less than a dozen public hearings were held on these issues. To lessen the financial burden on property owners of $4,681 per equivalent dwelling unit, $11 of the capital recovery was added into the monthly operations and maintenance billing for repayment of the infrastructure loans, distributing the costs as equitably as possible among the property owners. In addition, $24 per month covers common plant operation costs. When the city recently learned the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority water discounts were being extended to wastewater, it created a potential $170,000 annual shortfall in our utility budget. This discount was not contemplated or calculated in our many public rate workshops held on these issues. FKAApolicies on water charges and discounts remain the same, but the FKAAs extension of its discount is not related to wastewater and not part of the city of Marathons finance plan. The repayment of loans and keeping repayment costs as low as possible is a delicate balance. To continue a subsidy to any select group, the city would have to spread the cost of subsidizing that group of people to all citizens of Marathon. Every individual property owner would have to pay an additional $20 annually (commercial properties would incur multiples of $20) in order to make or replenish the $170,000. While the city is not seeking to recover these past underpayments, we cannot extend the discount for the foreseeable future. The City Council revisits the utility budget annually and eventually, perhaps after all the construction debt is paid off, alternate arrangements can be considered. Pete Worthington Marathon mayorProblems in the private sector mean state lawmakers must find road to more accountabilityWill the for-profit world do a good job caring for our kids? No one asks that question out loud, but you have to begin to wonder. This week, Gov. Rick Scott elected to punt, rejecting compromise legislation that tightened regulations and funding formulas for early-childhood education. Lawmakers, lobbyists, regulators and pre-kindergarten care providers were divided over fixes needed to Floridas School Readiness Program. Driving the debate in Tallahassee earlier this year was a critical 2011 report from the Florida Auditor Generals Office, which cited a figure of $40 million in possibly fraudulent payments to private providers. Lawmakers weighed in with legislation that would have imposed more state control but, critics say, watered down standards for school readiness providers. Until recently, Florida earned widespread kudos for the extent of taxpayer subsidies helping fund earlylearning initiatives. Astudy by the Rutgers Institute, released this month, found that Florida leads the U.S. in access to early learning with 76 percent of fouryear-olds enrolled in a state-run pre-kindergarten program. And the National Institute for Early Education Research, based in New Jersey, says Florida ranks first in the nation for providing 4-year-olds with access to voluntary prekindergarten, but now has slipped to last among 39 states when it comes to adequate funding per pupil. Floridas spending was just $2,422 per child for the 2010-11 school year much less than the national average of $4,141, reports the Florida News Services Margie Menzel. Critics of Floridas approach, which is a mix of programs provided by public and private providers, fault the quality of care providers and lament what they label the warehousing of children. The most disadvantaged children are locked into low-quality programs, according to Steven Barnett, director of the National Institute for Early Education Research at Rutgers. Its just a waste of money. You wont see any results. With that kind of assessment, is it any wonder that Florida lawmakers keep reducing funds for earlylearning initiatives, relying more and more on private charter schools and other private-sector solutions? Unfortunately, that repeats the cycle where families who can afford better care (or education) for their children will get it. Those who cant? Well, lets just say this headlong rush to privatize has consequences society has not yet fully experienced (or measured) in terms of long-term impact. The governors decision to veto the school readiness legislation is a good thing. It means early-learning advocates have more time to work with lawmakers to improve programs and accountability measures.

The question is where do we want to go and how do we get there. The district needs a plan. We cannot ask property owners to invest more in our education system without presenting a plan for how the additional money would be allocated. Business as usual is a non-starter. We expect measurable returns from our public investments, with outcomes that clearly benefit our students and local communities regardless of state and federal mandates. The path to restoring public confidence begins with addressing the districts enduring weaknesses: Financial assurance and management accountability. Despite how well we do in the classroom thank you, teachers the districts unforeseen financial liabilities seem endless. From class-size requirements and legal bills to contract snafus and Marathon money pits, it would seem the district is hell-bent on insolvency. Thank God we havent had a hurricane during these recent trials and tribulations. The district must move beyond firefighting and reactive decision making, put its finances on solid footing, and bring local communities into the allocation process school-based management. We need to take control of our financial future and solidify our current position. Without financial stability, we are unable to plan for the future and pull the district out of the ditch. At bare minimum, we should establish a 5 percent fund balance to protect the district from unforeseen liabilities and as a reserve for when not if we have our next hurricane. In addition, the superintendent must provide the public with a minimum three-year operating pro forma a projection of future funding and expenses based on reasonable assumptions. This vital information would allow local communities to deliberate in advance and take active roles in the school planning, programming and allocation process. Given the School Districts financial crisis, there are no sacred cows. Shared sacrifice will affect every program. But in the future, program prioritization should be made at the community and school level. Achieving this community-based model requires a fundamental rethinking of the districts organizational structure, shifting from a centralized planning approach to individual community/school-based management in which each school operates as its own entrepreneurial enterprise supported by the local community, with the tools and flexibility to compete with charter schools on a level playing field. Before we can shift these enormous responsibilities to our individual schools, we must re-align job descriptions to support the new management structure, and we must have absolute determination to hire exceptional talent to lead our schools and departments. As we transition from the current period of financial crisis to a sustainable operating environment, all non-teaching positions and compensation should be reviewed for reciprocating value and relevance to supporting district goals. All non-teaching positions should be on six-month contracts with biannual reviews. At the beginning of each contract period, goals and expectations will be reviewed for each employee. If employees exceed expectations, creating added value for the district, they should receive a bonus yes, we need to establish bonus pools for each school and department. If an employee fails to meet expectations, a corrective plan must be submitted and achieved within six months. If an employee fails to achieve his or her corrective plan, its time to give someone else a shot at the job. No more special treatment, special contracts. Everyone should have the same health insurance package. No more insiders and outsiders. We must level the playing field, hold each other accountable and work together as a community to put the School District back on the road to achieving our vision: Aworldclass district graduating responsible, well-informed global citizens who are college and/or career ready. Money alone will not pull the district out of the ditch. Its going to take wholesale realignment and a plan of action. Robin-Smith Martin was elected to the Monroe County School Board in District 1 in 2010.GUEST COLUMN SMITH-MARTINStudios is a blessingThe life of an artist is generally a solitary endeavor but there are moments of social sunshine. Grants and awards are high among them and my experience at the Studios of Key West was one of my greatest. The three weeks I spent there as an artist in residence was one of my most productive and it has led to an equally fruitful relationship the Key West Literary Seminar. Arts organizations as successful as the Studios are rare and it is would be a terrible loss to the Key West community if it were lost. Key West is about as different from New York City, where I grew up, and Helsinki, Finland, where I now live, as I could imagine, but I feel the island is the host to some of my best art buddies. My annual trip there is now one of my years most important cornerstone, better than Christmas. Please do whatever you can to keep the Studios of Key West a flourishing element of Key West. Its contribution to the island and the people who visit it is immeasurable. The Studios is one of the reasons Key West is so unique and beautiful.

To our Kahunas Julie Johnson and Josie Koler and to all of those who donated to our Kahunas ID your strengths to get yourself aheadAre you looking for a new or better job, or even considering starting your own business? Heres an exercise that can help focus your search. Sit down at your computer if youre the old-fashioned type, with pen and paper and make a list of everything youve done the past 20 years. Yeah. Big job. But dont turn the page just yet. Go ahead: Write down everything youve done in the past 20 years. If you dont have 20 years of working experience behind you, college and even high school is fair game. Youll probably start out all serious and list major job accomplishments, and thats great. Thats part of what youre trying to identify. But dont forget the fun stuff, too. Have you traveled overseas? Volunteered at the library? Mentored a highschool student? Taken a CPR course? Served on a nonprofit board of directors? If youve done some really dumb things liking hiking in the desert without enough drinking water, or running out of gas in the middle of the 18-Mile Stretch at 3 in the morning put that down, too. Capture it all. Let your mind go wherever it likes. If youre like most of us, youll start off strong with a fairly welldefined list of what youve done. It may even sound a lot like a resume thats OK and youll naturally begin to create major headers with subcategories below them. Some of these new skills can be grouped under the major headers youve already established, using them to flesh out the biggies with more detail. You may also be pleasantly surprised to learn, looking at the list as a whole, that you have a bunch of skills and talents you never realized you had. There are two bonus points with that youll get a little ego boost and at the same time identify quantifiable accomplishments (remember, this is about what youve done, not what you think or what you know) that can help you get to where you want to be. Go ahead and luxuriate in that feeling for a while. Its a good place from which to launch your next step: Narrowing down your now-voluminous list to just three. Sounds appalling, but at this point, it should be relatively easy. Maybe youve discovered that youve got tons of experience helping people solve problems. Or that marketing is where your expertise lies. Or your communication skills written and verbal are off the charts. You may even learn that all three of your top knowledge-based skill groups are interrelated to some degree. Taking these three seemingly disparate examples, you may decide that your ideal job or new business is helping people create and implement marketing plans using your communication skills. Ta-da! You have your skills committed in black and white. You know the kind of work youre good at and have a demonstrable list of accomplishments to back it up. Check the job market, or start a business plan along those lines, and get moving. But please dont sit on your duff, waiting for the perfect job to be offered to you.

Not so much.Review, 3B Songwriters festival Key West fills up with country-music songwriters and performers this coming week.Story, 3B B Sports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Sabres end CanesseasonCoral Shores High Schools lineup got the hits but struggled to score in a 52 season-ending loss to St. Brendan in the District 164Abaseball semifinals Tuesday. Our guys never gave up, said Canes coach Joe Joyce. They battled and fully believed they could win it until the last out of the last inning. The Hurricanes finish the spring campaign with a 1411-1 record. Seven of the losses came within the powerhouse district, which includes former state champs Key West High and Gulliver Prep, along with district leader St. Brendan. St. Brendans Sabres (186) used a pair of RBI doubles in the bottom of the sixth inning to score three runs that broke open a closely contested game at Founders Park in Islamorada. Coral Shores answered with a solo run in the top of the seventh. Juan Casanova cracked a one-out double to the centerfield fence and came home on Erick Enriquezs RBI double. The rally ended there on a pair of ground outs. Hard-throwing senior Brandon Joyce went the distance on the mound for the Canes, limiting the Sabres to eight hits and four walks. But the Sabres took advantage of their opportunities. In previous games against St. Brendan, we didnt hit well, Joe Joyce said. This time we managed to outhit them, but their hits were more timely. They got some legitimate hits late in the game with guys in scoring position. Coral Shores slapped 10 hits, including right fielder Jordan Izaguirres 3-for-3 game.

This was a great season, Loy said after District 16-2A champion Eagles lost a 12-9 decision to Westwood Christian at Founders Park in Islamorada. The Eagle lineup in the state playoffs did not include any seniors, Loy noted. This was a really young team that gained a lot of ground this spring, Loy said. Everybody is super excited about the next few years. The Lady Eagles got a two-run double from second baseman Jasmine Theodosiou in the first inning Tuesday, then capitalized on a series of Westwood Christian walks. We were able to draw a lot of walks and had some good hits, Loy said. Everybody thought we could pull it out in the bottom of the seventh inning but it didnt work out. The Eagles (8-10 but unbeaten in district) got a complete game from sophomore pitcher Amanda Ihrig. We rode Amandas arm all season, Loy said. Shes a workhorse who never complains. The Lady Eaglesdistrict championship apparently is the first softball crown since the state switched to fastpitch. Besides Ihrig, other Eagles eligible to return include catcher Ileana Garcia, shortstop Kaylyn Wyatt and first baseman Amanda Scott.ISLAND CHRISTIAN SOFTBALLConchsseason one to forgetThe Key West High baseball team saved its best for last but it still wasnt enough, and now the team and coach Miguel Menendez are left to contemplate the programs first losing season in 41 years. Hardly resembling the team that bumbled its way through most of the regular season, the Conchs were outstanding in the field and got a sterling pitching performance in Tuesdays 1-0, eight-inning loss to Gulliver Prep in a District 16-4Asemifinal game at Founders Park in Islamorada. The defeat ended the season short of the state playoffs, and the team came home with a 9-14 record. The only other losing seasons were in 1968 and 1971, according to former athletic director Judd Wise. That wont sit well with many fans, who like to boast of 11 state championships (none since 2005) and Menendez knows it. I agree it is totally unacceptable. Menendez, who is 108-82 in seven seasons, said Wednesday. People have to understand that as upset and disappointed as [the fans] are, it doesnt compare to my disappointment. I have to do a better job. I will also say, he went on, that my coaching staff and I worked our tails off all year and at the end of the year you could see the difference with this team. [Tuesdays] game was a good example of that. This program is in good hands and is on the cusp of being very special soon. Against Gulliver, the Conchs were almost flawless on defense there was right fielder Matt Chelekis making a diving catch. There was catcher Darren Miller throwing out two runners trying to steal. There was pitcher Chris Garcia picking a runner off first base. Garcia, a junior righthander throwing the game of his career, allowed five hits and struck out 11. But his counterpart, ace lefthander Ivan Peleaz, was a shade better. Peleaz hurled a four-hit shutout, allowing five hits and striking out 13. In 12 innings against the Conchs this season (the teams split two regular-season games), he had 19 strikeouts. Of Garcia, Menendez said, It was one of the best performances I have seen as a player and as a coach for this program. Of Peleaz, he said, He was tough all the time, but when guys got on base he took it to another level. The Conchs twice had runners in scoring position. In the fourth, Miller singled and stole second base, but then Garcia, Hugo Valdez and Tommy Ruffennach struck out. In the sixth, Michael Abreu led off with a double but Miller and GarciaDiamond squad finishes 9-14By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASEBALL By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWConch pitcher Chris Garcia struck out 11 and allowed only five hits,but even that wasnt enough for Key West to advance in the postseason.See Conchs,2B Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWIsland Christian outfielder Kirstin Tangen goes into a slide at home to score on a wild pitch in Tuesdays Region 4-2A playoff game in Islamorada.The Eagles ended their season in a 12-9 decision to Westwood Christian.

AmazingSolution in the May 2 Keynotertwice and scored once. Josh Sands added a single. The Canes stranded five runners in the final three innings, and saw a potential rally erased by a St. Brendan double play, the only one of the game. St. Brendan broke on top with two runs in the third, coming off two walks and two hits. The odd stanza also included a run scored on a balk, and pop fly that Coral Shores coaches contended should have been called as an infield-fly out. Carter opened the Cane fourth with a single, advanced on a Sands grounder and scored when Izaguirre singled. Enriquez at shortstop had solid game for the Canes and the Coral Shores outfield ran down several tough shots. David Bogue worked well behind the plate. Defensively, we were right in it and the pitching was pretty good, Joyce said. Overall, the coaches were happy with the performance against a good team. Both Florida Keys teams in the district tournament were eliminated in Tuesdays semifinal round. Key West High School battled Gulliver Prep through a scoreless game before falling in the first extra inning, 1-0.Canes end 14-11-1From Canes,1B struck out, and Valdez grounded out. Asked if he had considered having Miller bunt Abreu to third, Menendez said, Yes, I did, but I felt Miller had already hit two balls really hard and was on him real good, so I let him swing. I went with my gut and it might have cost us the game. Gulliver, a 17-6 team rife with Division 1 signees, finally broke through in the bottom of the eighth. After a double by Adrian Marin and an intentional walk, the Raiders had runners at first and second with two outs. Miller then let a pitch get away for a passed ball, allowing the runners to advance. Eric Neitzel then hit Garcias 2-2 pitch to left for a single that won the game. Not sure why it took so long, but the team that showed up Tuesday was the team I expected all year, Menendez said. There are no excuses for this program to only win nine games in a season.No excusesFrom Conchs,1B Dolphins finish season at 15-12Not even a four-hit, sixstrikeout gem from Marathon High School starter Yoniel Esquirol was enough to outdo Florida Christian School lefty John Molkentin Tuesday. The Patriots senior, headed to the University of Miami in the fall, no-hit the Dolphins en route to a 3-0 opening round District 16-2Awin, ending Marathons season. Marathon coach Luis Leal said Esquirol was dominant in his own right, keeping hitters off balance over six innings. He walked just one batter. He did great the whole game. He threw hard and his slider was really nasty, Leal said. But the other kid was the real deal. Florida Christian scored in the first inning when their leadoff hitter reached on a single, stole second base and was knocked in on a double. The score remained 1-0 until the fifth inning, when a Patriot hitter singled to right field and reached second on an error. He was sacrificed over to third and scored on a base hit to make it 2-0. Esquirol allowed a solo home run in the bottom of the sixth that made it 3-0, but the Dolphins werent able to get started offensively against Molkentin. Marathon finished the season with a 15-12 record and reached the April 17 championship game of the South Florida Baseball Conference. It was their inaugural conference season. The conference is made up of six similarly sized South Florida high schools, including Keys rival Coral Shores. The Dolphins defeated the regular season champion Hurricanes in the semifinals before losing to Miami Country Day. Leal fielded a young team against stiff District 16 competition like the Patriots and Westminster Christian. Marathon graduates just three seniors in Joey Gonzalez, Drew Thornbrugh and P.J. Palmer. Leal said the Dolphins obtained most every goal it set for the season. We wanted at least 15 wins; got to the conference finals; we upset Coral Shores, which was huge, he said. We started off hot and did a lot of things we didnt know we could. Wed like to go to the state playoffs but considering teams in our district were happy with the year.The Patriots toss a no-no at MarathonBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON BASEBALLLast standing: Georges, CowplandThe spring sports season at Key West High School is down to two athletes seniors Clive Georges and Lindsay Cowpland and there they were Thursday afternoon, behind the school ready for practice. The pair will compete in todays Class 2Astate track meet at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville Georges in the triple jump and the 100-, 200and 400meter dashes, Cowpland in the discus and shot put. They are good friends. She loves me, Georges said, his smile above a patch of chin hair as dazzling as his ear studs. Asked if he expects to win some gold medals, he said, Im hoping to in the 200 and 400. At the April 18 regional meet, he was second in the 200 in a school-record 21.48 seconds, and third in the 400. He also won the 100 and triple jump at that event. AKey West native whose parents were born in Haiti, Georges was 8 years old when he discovered a love for running. I would race my god-sister house to house on Fourth Street, he said. It took a while, but I got her. Georges, who is 6-foot-1, almost as tall as Cowpland, also starred in football and basketball during his Conch career, and has a scholarship to play football at the University of Arizona. Cowpland played varsity basketball and was a middle blocker on the volleyball team. Shes got me in volleyball and Ive got her in basketball in track, were even, he said, and the affable Cowpland didnt argue. While Georges will aim for first-place finishes today he is seeded second in the 100, third in the 200 and 400, and seventh in the triple jump Cowplands goal is to finish in the top eight and get a medal. Im hoping for 114 [feet] in the discus, she said. Cowpland will be seeded 12th in the discus and 15th in the shot put. I think she can get a medal and also break the school record (113-9) in the discus, said coach Rick Ridenour. Cowpland threw her personal best (112-4) to finish third at the recent regionals. She was throwing 116 in practice this week winners in the event usually surpass 120 feet. In the shot put, her record is 35-5, but the top girls throw beyond 40 feet. Assistant coach Dave Perkins said Georges who was on medal-winning relay teams at the state meet as a freshman, sophomore and junior can win any of the three running events. Hes right there with the best times and hes raced most of these kids already, he said. The key for Georges, Perkins said, is to be confident and relaxed. Runners tense up at the state meet and their times are not as fast as they were at regionals, he said.Conch pair eyeing medals at state meetBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST TRACKLady Conchs fall in the regionalThe Key West High School softball team went to extra innings in an attempt to go further in the state playoffs, but its bid was denied by host Ransom Everglades, which edged the Conchs, 3-2, in Tuesday nights 4Aregional quarterfinal game in Miami. Ransom, the District 154Achampion, scored a run in the bottom of the ninth to end the Conchsseason. Key West, which was second in 16-4A, finished 10-15. The Conchs appeared close to victory when they took a 2-1 lead in the sixth. Raquel Schoneck tripled in her sister Lauren, who had singled, and then scored herself on a single by Devin Osterhoudt. The bases were loaded later in the inning, but two strikeouts prevented a bigger rally. Ransom, which had scored its first run in the first on a throwing error, used two singles and a hit batter to tie the game in its sixth against Rachel Quad, who closed her pitching career with a typical gritty performance she went the route, striking out four, walking none and allowing 10 hits. After both teams went down in order in the seventh, Key West had a chance in the eighth but stranded Kendall Galvan, who had stolen third after doubling with two out. Quad then set down Ransom in order in the bottom of the eighth. The game eventually came down to a play at home plate. Ransom put together three hits in the last of the ninth, the last of which came with two outs and scored the winning run. Afterward, coach Steve Wells, who is 45-50 in four seasons the team has lost four consecutive times in the first round of the playoffs looked to the future. Were definitely getting better, he said. It was a good building year for the program.Team finishes with 10-15 mark on the seasonBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST SOFTBALLEagles make it to regionalAdistrict semifinal win Tuesday puts Island Christian Schools Eagles in the opening round of the state Region 4-2Abaseball tournament this week. On Friday, the Eagles (77) headed for the District 162Atitle game at Colonial Christian to face the host Patriots. Results were pending at press time. Winner of District 16-2A gets to host a Thursday regional game; the loser travels to face the District 15 winner. Were excited to have the chance to play in the regional, ICS head coach Bruce Davis said before leaving Friday. Eagle coaches planned for Kadian Carter to make his first pitching start of the season against Colonial. Carter threw regularly in relief during the regular season but coaches wanted to limit his pitch count to protect his shoulder. Matt Cavanagh also is available to pitch in the title game. The Eagles split two games with Colonial in the regular season. Island Christian advanced after beating Redland Christian Academy, 7-2, in the 16-2Asemifinal Tuesday. Dylan Ayres, an ICS veteran but a new addition to the pitching rotation this spring, threw a four-hitter to stop Redland.

Filled with plot holes and too many Hollywood cliches to count, most critics trashed the movie, giving it a 21 percent (out of 100) rating on Rotten Tomatoes. But more importantly to studio executives, the viewer rating on Rotten Tomatoes is a respectable 77 percent and the film opened with the second highest gross of the week. So someone out there likes the movie.... and its more than likely not the men. The film is about a young Marine named Logan Thibault, played by heart-throb Zac Efron, who has survived three tours in Iraq, protected, he believes, by the photo of a young woman that he found and carried with him. When he finally gets back to the U.S., he moves in with his sister in Colorado, whose family struggles to deal with his Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. He eventually decides to find the woman in the picture and thank her for saving him and his sanity. Logan has no idea who she is or where she lives, but after an internet search (based on a partial view of a lighthouse in the photo), he quickly finds the town where she lives. (Isnt the Internet amazing?) The woman who saved him lives in a small town in coastal Louisiana. He just has to meet her, but somehow planes, trains, and automobiles are not his preferred method of travel. So he decides the best option is to walk. To Louisiana. From Colorado. With his dog. Weve all seen movies like this and pretty much know whats coming. We know that the heroine will be a plucky single mom with a cute kid (Jerry Maguire), there will be conflict with the locals (Rambo) and therell be a wise old person to offer sage advice at the appropriate times (AWalk in the Clouds). Oh, and the hero will unwisely keep a secret that may destroy any chance for happiness the two lead characters might have (Random Hearts). Will that happen? Will the young lovers be forever torn apart by the horrible secret?

Those lyrics from What Hurts the Most, written by singer-songwriter Jeffrey Steele, may seem a fitting way to introduce this years Key West Songwriters Festival. Only, were hoping the rains stay away (especially the frog stranglers experienced this past weekend) for what is shaping up to be a huge song fest stretching over five days May 2-6. More than 100 singers and songwriters are expected to attend what will be the 17th year for this festival, which was the brainchild of Charlie Bauer, who founded the festival with Nashville songwriter and musician Drew Reid. In addition to Steele, festival goers will hear from the likes of Rascal Flatts, the country band that snagged a coveted Grammy award nomination this year for Bless the Broken Road. That came in the allgenre song of the year nominations, a tough competition, especially for musicians with country roots. Tim McGraw, who wrote the hit The Cowboy in Me, is also on the Key West Songwriters invite list, along with Dallas Davidson, 2012 Academy of Country Music Songwriter of the Year winner; Matraca Berg, cowriter of Kenny Chesneys chart-topping duet You and Tequila; rockabilly legend Billy Burnette, a former Fleetwood Mac band member; Jeff Hanna, founding member of the iconic Nitty Gritty Dirt Band; Bob DiPiero, whose hits include McGraws Southern Voice; Luke Laird, cowriter of So Small and Last Name for Carrie Underwood; and Chuck Cannon, who co-wrote How Do You Like Me Now? with Toby Keith.17th yearNow celebrating its 17th year, the Key West Songwriters Festival bills itself as the largest festival of its kind in the world. And, with the backing of BMI, the gathering of musicians and music lovers has become a favorite among locals and visitors alike. With free concerts and more than 30 shows on tap, its easy to see why Bauers love of music has morphed into such a successful event. Bauer, event director, credits Reid with the initial idea. After Drew brought the concept to me, BMI, ASCAPand SESAC began bringing the writers down, Bauer said in a LAttitudes interview. And every year the event has grown.More than 100 artists and 30 shows on tapLAttitudes StaffMUSIC benefitting MARC,Inc.Michelle SnyderThanks to all who helped make the Spring Fling successful,especially:The tireless efforts of MARC Staff and Volunteers,Paul and MagdaCoconut Cove Resort and Marina,Ken and CarolThe Sunshine Band,The Vihlen Family, Vic's Auto Tech,Community BankTavernier,Bass Pro Outdoor World,The Islander Resort,Dolphin Reasearch Center,Carmen Sotolongo-Kelley,Diana McGuirk Hille,The Sunrise Market,The Trading Post,City Hall Cafe,Hog Heaven, Lorelei,Tower of PizzaIslamorada, Boardwalk Pizza,Chilli Willie's,Chef Michael's,Smuggler's Cove,Publix, Winn Dixie,and CSHS Culinary Program.

Other anticipated festival highlights include group shows Thursday and Friday nights at the San Carlos Institute, 516 Duval St., and at Tropic Cinema, 416 Eaton St. For more information, visit www.keywestsong writersfestival.com.Many performances are freeFrom Showcase,3B Country singing star Tim McGraw. The screenplay was adapted by Will Fetters and directed by Scott Hicks, who previously brought us Shine and Snow Falling on Cedars. Exquisitely photographed by Alar Kivil, the sun-dappled scenes make the imaginary town of Hamden, La., look like a place where we would all like to live. The many bridges are beautifully filmed as well and its obvious that one bridge in particular will somehow figure prominently later in the film. Little-known Taylor Schilling, in only her third major film, plays Beth, the romantic interest to Efrons ridiculously handsome Logan, while Gwyneth Paltrows mom, veteran actress Blythe Danner, plays Nana, the advice-dispensing grandmother. Both Schilling and Danner do an adequate job in their roles, but the most interesting character in the film has to be the nasty ex-husband and local deputy sheriff, played by Jay R. Ferguson. Even though the part is hackneyed and predictable, Ferguson exudes menace and the movie gets noticeably more interesting when he appears. On the other hand, Efron seems to have attended the Keanu Reeves school of acting hes pretty to look at but his character appears to be carved out of a block of wood. His stunning blue eyes and his teen idol looks are his only redeeming factors. But to the films target audience, when a hot young actor looks that good, any dramatic skills are just an added bonus. The voice-over at the beginning and end are unnecessary and the viewer may find it hard to believe that any man, especially one so young, could be accomplished in as many skills as Logan. The ending depends on an expected but totally unbelievable deus ex machina that even the idyllic final scene cant make up for. But, hey, it leads to the finale that most of the audience came to see and which led to that 77 percent viewer rating. So men, heres my advice: If she asks you to go, grin and bear it and go see The Lucky One with her. Surely you can stand an hour and forty-one minutes of chick flick? The film is not terrible and there are some steamy but tasteful love scenes. And who knows? If you indulge her and sit through the whole movie, when you get home, the films title may even apply to you.Cinematography exquisite, plot notFrom Lucky,3B 91298 Overseas Hwy, Tavernierbbtheatres.com NOWALLDIGITAL!

Part of the Upper Duval Art Stroll, the gallery will showcase Jekels work, which gravitates to images shes captured since coming to the Keys as a diving enthusiast as well as artist. Born in California, she and her husband raised a family in San Luis Obispo. After her sons were grown, Jekel says she and her husband decided to go adventuring and wound up in the Keys. Her love of nature and the sea is apparent in her work that includes the flora and fauna of the Keys, said Fran Decker, who is organizing the show and reception. Jekel said she was first shown the Tiffany copper-foil method by her mom, who is also an artist and continues to work at the age of 82. And adds that the copper foil method is stronger and allows for more detail than traditional lead stain glass techniques.

These days he and his band perform all over the country, traveling to as many as 120 road shows over the course of the past year. Starting Monday, April 30, he and his group can be found on stage at Key Wests Hogs Breath Saloon, holding down the early evening gig from 5:30-9:30 p.m. nightly through May 6. Parrish is part of the Trop-Rock genre. He formed a band known as The Ocean Waves in 2000. By 2007, they released an original CD, Lets Go Fishin. The Hogs Breath will also play host to singersongwriter Mick McAdam, who will bring along Eric Holt and play as a duo April 30-May 6. Parrish will be at the Hogs Breath Saloon, 400 Front St., April 30 May 6, from 5:30 9:30 p.m. Anative Floridian, Parrish has been singing and playing for twenty-seven years and performing actively along the east coast since 1990. After forming The Ocean Waves Band in 2000, his goal was to entertain the Parrot Heads and audiences throughout the region with an island style tropical flavor. Parrishs music has grown quite large in popularity over the years, especially with the release of Lets Go Fishin, and continue to headline festivals, from Myrtle Beach to Miami. The Trop-Rock genre has grown rapidly in recent years, which in part explains why he performed 120 shows last year, and this year will top out around 150. The band is made up of a group of incredibly talented musicians that have earned a significant and loyal following in the northeast Florida area. Singer-songwriter Mike McAdam is no stranger to the Hogs Breath stage or his following of local fans that help fill the club when hes playing, and this time around he will be bringing his pal Eric Holt to town and the duo will be performing as the Holt-McAdam Band, April 30 May 6, playing the mid-shift gig, 5:30 9:30 pm. McAdam is one of Nashvilles in-demand session guitarists and toured in the s with Radney Foster. At Silvertone Recording, owned by McAdam and Jack Irwin, he has worked with Jeff Black, Jack Ingram, Sawyer Brown, Flaco Jimenez and others on indie album projects. McAdam continues to produce and play guitar for numerous artists, including Radney Foster. McAdams self-produced solo effort, A Million Miles, was completed at Silvertone. The album contains eleven songs, ten of them originals, with vocal performances that may surprise those who have only heard McAdams guitar work in the past. The songs are insightful and the production is stellar.

His namesake fishing tournament raises money for graduating seniors at Coral Shore High School. Shallow-water blackouts are all too common, especially when combined with vigorous exertion in the water and some mistakes in prepping for free dives.Terry Mass and David Sipperly of BlueWater Freedivers have written a book on the subject. These are excerpts from their work: Every year we lose too many divers to shallow-water blackouts. Almost everyone I interviewed for this book has a story to tell about this frightening but all too common occurrence. Shallow-water blackout (SWB) is the sudden loss of consciousness caused by oxygen st arvation. Unconsciousness strikes most commonly within 15 feet (five meters) of the surface, where expanding, oxygen-hungry lungs literal ly suck oxygen from the diver's blood.The blackout occurs quickly, insidiously and without warning. Mercifully, the victims of this condition die witho ut any idea of their impending death. Beginning breath-hold divers, because of their lack of adaptation, are not generally subject to this condition. It is th e intermediate diver who is most at risk. He is in an accelerated phase of training, and his physical and mental adaptations allow him to dive deeper and longer with eac h new diving day sometimes too deep or too long. Advanced divers are not immune. Shallow-water blackout was a hot research topic for diving physicians in the 1960s when they worked out the basic physiology described above. They also studied the case histories of SWB victims, identifying several factors that can contribute to th is condition. These include hyperventilation, exercise, a competitive personality, a focused mind-set and youth.The use of hyperventilation in preparation for freediving is controversial. No one disagrees that prolonged hyperventilation, after minutes of vigorous breathing accompanied by dizziness and tingling in the arms and legs, is dangerous. Some diving physicians believe that any hyperventilation is deadly because of the variation in effects among individuals and on one person, from one time to another. O ther physicians, studying professional freedivers such as the Ama divers of Japan, found that they routinely hyperventilated mildly and took a deep breath before descendin g. Their hyperventilation is very mild; they limit it by pursed lip breathing before a dive.Probably the best approach can be found in the U.S. Navy Diving Manual (Vol ume 1, Air Diving), which states, Hyperventilation with air before a skindive is almost standard procedure and is reasonably safe if it is not carried too far. H yperventilation with air should not be continued beyond three to four breaths, and the diver should start to surface as soon as he notices a definite urge to resume brea thingSUMMARYHere are ways to avoid shallow-water blackout: Do not hyperventilate to excess, no more than three or four breaths. Recognize that any strenuous exercise will limit your bottom time drastically; when you exercise, head for the surface much sooner than usual. Recognize a dangerous situation when your mind starts to focus on a goal, and drop your weight belt. Treat your weight belt as a disposable item; if in doubt, drop it. Bring a spare weight belt to decrease your hesitancy to dr op it. Avoid endurance dives. If you must make a long or deep dive, make sure you have a buddy standing by on the surface. Adjust your weight belt so that you will float at 15 feet. Consider a swimming pool a dangerous place to practice endurance breath-holding, always have an observer standing by to assist. Learn the basics of CPR and think about adapting them to your diving arena, whether diving from shore, board or boat.
