In the Florida Keys, the new rules have already made it impossible for builders to obtain risk insurance for new construction, according to Annalise Mannix, executive director of Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe.FIRM hopes to meet with the state Cabinet May 8 when it meets at Stanley Switlik Elementary School in Marathon. It marks the first time the states full Cabinet has held a meeting in the Keys.As of Tuesday, Citizens new get-tough rules removed any limits on rates for new policies, which experts say means policyholders new to Citizens could pay as much as 50 percent more than existing customers for similar coverage.This is outrageous, Mannix said. By new policies, they mean the person who wants to buy my house and then finds out they cant afford to because of the high cost of insurance. This just kills our economy. Citizens, which unveiled its aggressive depopulation plan this month in a revised budget proposal, says it is doing so to prevent statewide financial havoc in the wake of a major hurricane. Citizens has the ability to levy assessments [hurricane taxes] on almost all Florida policyholders in the event of a deficit after a storm, spokeswoman Christine Ashburn said. The longterm goal will continue to be returning policies to the private market, which is ultimately how we can reduce the reliance on assessments.Some homeowners have already been impacted by the first wave of Citizenscam-Insurer of last resort makes it tougher to obtain, retain coverageBy TOLUSE OLORUNNIPAMiami HeraldINSURANCE New day forKeys collegeWith contract negotiations ongoing, Jonathan Gueverra is prepping to leave the nations capital to lead Florida Keys Community College, where he was tapped Saturday to be the institutions sixth president.Gueverra, now chief executive officer of the University of the District of Columbia Community College, wowed the five-member college board of trustees during a 90minute interview at the colleges Stock Island campus.That was preceded on Friday by an hour-long townhall meeting in which he fielded questions from college staff and others.Gueverra, 53, is a native of Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean. He has masters and doctorate degrees from the University of MassachusettsBoston and undergraduate degrees from Providence (R.I.) College and Newbury College in Boston.He has been married for 30 years and has two grown daughters and a 13-year-old son.Gueverra beat out two other semifinalists, culled from an initial pool of 43 applicants: George Bishop, vice president for academic affairs and learning support at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City, and Allen Witt, president of the South Shore campus of Hillsborough Community College.At the D.C. college, Gueverra oversees around 6,000 students, more than half working through noncredit training programs. For the spring semester this year, FKCC has around 360 fulltime students. Much of his charge here will be expanding enrollment, and he sees doing that by attracting out-of-state and international students by leveraging unique assets like the dive and marine science programs. Gueverra said hes worked in the past with oncampus housing and will be able to apply that experience to FKCCs fledgling Lagoon Landing; the 100-bed dorm has been open since August and is running at less than 70 percent occupancy.

The Monroe County Sheriffs Office referred questions to the FBI, which declined comment. However, Sheriffs Office Col. Rick Ramsay said they were identified and interviewed in Miami, where they apparently live.Two men showed up at Marathon Middle/High School on April 24 saying they are teachers from Italy. They showed up at Horace OBryant Middle School in Key West the next day.Visitors show up on campuses, no one says whyBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comCRIME FRONTDrenching rain not stopping yetDont look for the rains that have soaked the Keys since the weekend to end today or Thursday. Apair of low-pressure systems are to blame for the significant rainfall, according to the National Weather Service in Key West. Normally in April and May, usually the Caribbean has high pressure and a lot of dry air. It tends to be for the most part dry and warmer, but this time we had some moisture and the weather systems were moving very slowly, Warning and Coordination Meteorologist Jon Rizzo said.

As a result, you very well will end up with more successful students.Current FKCC President Larry Tyree is retiring on or before July 1.The contract is still being negotiated, she said Tuesday. Gueverra may come a little bit earlier. Itll be on or before July 1.In 2009 he became the first-ever president and chief executive of the Community College of the District of Columbia, then in its first year of operation as an offshoot of the University of the District of Colombia, a four-year college. Gueverras salary at FKCC has not been finalized although it was advertised not to exceed $180,000. Tyree, before he voluntarily gave up half his salary in summer 2011 to help mitigate a budget shortfall, earned $216,000 including a housing allowance and vehicle and cell phone stipends.Enrollment a big priorityFrom President,1A over and over again. Were seeing more sunshine [Tuesday] but we still have numerous showers and itll take a couple days [to clear up]. The winds will settle down again, too, he said. Rizzo compiled threeday totals up and down the Keys through noon Tuesday and found the Middle and Upper Keys got the wettest. Heavy rainfall began Saturday afternoon in Key Largo.The biggest total was from Dolphin Cove and that was 8.92 inches from Saturday until noon Tuesday, Rizzo said of the mile marker 102 attraction.Aweather beacon just off the coast near mile marker 111 showed 8.46 inches of rainfall during the same period.Rizzo said the second heaviest rainfall was found in Marathon, with totals ranging from just more than 6 inches at Florida Keys Marathon Airport to almost 8 inches at Curry Hammock State Park.Rizzo said the Lower Keys were mostly spared, with Ramrod and Cudjoe keys gathering just 1.1 inches of rain from Saturday through Tuesday. Key West had just below 3 inches, he said. Showers remain likely today, with possible thunderstorms during the day. Winds will remain out of the east at 15 mph. Winds remain high Thursday, but the chance of rain drops to just 30 percent. Friday and Saturday are expected to be mostly sunny, with highs near 86 degrees and only 20 percent chance of rain.Dont put away rain gear yetFrom Weather,1A paign to drastically reduce its size and shore up its finances.Patricia Temple of Coral Gables is bracing for a $2,150 premium increase this year after Citizens sent an inspector to her home and decided her payments were too low. I have to do what I have to do because I [can] not be without insurance, said Temple, who is 79 and retired. But I dont understand how they can do this if the Legislature put in a 10 percent cap on rate increases.Stories like Temples are echoed by thousands of policyholders who say theyve seen costs suddenly spike despite never making a claim or experiencing hurricane damage.Under a sweeping reinspection program, Citizens has sent inspectors to 158,000 buildings the past two years. As inspectors check roofs and windows, more often than not, they find something that translates into higher premiums, with an average increase of nearly $900. Another 209,000 inspections are scheduled for this year. Citizensdepopulation push will soon go into overdrive, with several hardcharging coverage changes set to kick in over the next 18 months. Ideally, Citizens would like to shrink by 45 percent to 794,308 policies in the very near future. With private insurers still wary about the Florida market, its not clear where 678,000 current policyholders will go for coverage when contracts end with Citizens. Keynoter staff contributed to this report.Expect premium hikesFrom Citizens,1ASpecific changesCitizens Property Insurance Corp.s theory is that its artificially low rates discourage private insurers by making the market uncompetitive.Its banking on more private insurers picking up the slack as it depopulates. Here are a few of the changes that began Tuesday for Citizens policyholders:Homeowners who need to join Citizens will have to submit written proof that there is no private insurer able to provide affordable coverage for their homeCoverage for carports,screened enclosures and fences will end for renewal policies.The personal liability coverage limit will decline from $300,000 to $100,000.Uncapping rates for new policies,causing new policyholders to pay as much as 50 percent more than existing customers for similar coverage.Requiring new electrical and plumbing inspections for older homes. Miami Herald MARATHON Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYThe courthouse at mile marker 48.5 oceanside is encased in plastic while the asbestos is removed.Asbestos removal starts at courthouseA$165,000 project to remove mold and asbestos from the Marathon courthouse is nearing completion.Monroe County Project Management Director Jerry Barnett said the main courthouse building was taped off on April 10 and workers began removing asbestos-containing materials a week later.The county was in the midst of a roughly $900,000 project to replace a dated trailer and make numerous refurbishments to the courthouse when the mold and asbestos were found. Construction halted Dec. 27 and the county approved the asbestos removal in January.They should be wrapping the asbestos-containing material removal up this week ... and be able to get restarted with the renovation that was interrupted, Senior Project Management Director Kevin Wilson said.Trial Court Administrator Holly Elomina said the courthouse is running smoothly now that the county purchased a shed-like structure to house security checkpoint equipment.Where the magnetometer was located was in the asbestos area. We had to wait for the county to be able to find some shelter for it to be in, she said. Acting Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker is based in Marathon and has been operating solely out of the new trailer. Circuit Court Judge Tegan Slaton holds family court there, while Chief Circuit Court Judge David Audlin holds juvenile and drug court there.Elomina said the county continues to hold monthly traffic court, as well as some jury selection, in the commission chambers at the Marathon Government Center while the courthouse work is ongoing.County Commissioner George Neugent had suggested razing the courthouse and adjacent building housing a Monroe County Sheriffs Office substation and Tax Collectors Office after the asbestos was found, replacing them with one large complex.Elomina proposed a judicial complex to the commission in January, saying some 9,000 cases, including traffic citations, go through the Marathon courthouse each year and that the county pays $100,000 rent annually for the building. Wilson presented preliminary estimates ranging from $7.4 million to $23 million, depending on the size of such a project. But he told the commission the obvious conclusion is to complete the renovation. Thats because a temporary fix while a new courthouse is designed and built would cost $500,000 and last three to five years. Completing the ongoing repairs would cost between $435,000 and $450,000 and make the building usable for 10 years. Either option required removing mold and asbestos.Official says it may be done end of weekBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comStill no records from AT&TAMonroe County grand jury will wait longer than expected to begin its probe into the theft of countyowned iPads and iPhones. Assistant Monroe County State Attorney Mark Wilson says cell-phone giant AT&T has asked for more time to comply with records subpoenas. He had thought he would get the records by April 25. I dont know what the problem is there, but its not uncommon when records are subpoenaed to ask for more time. These companies get thousands of requests. Youve got law enforcement agencies across the country requesting records, he said.Former Technical Services Director Lisa Druckemiller allegedly stole iPhones and iPads she ordered for the county and resold them to friends and co-workers. Shes downplayed her role to the Keynoter and implied several other county employees are involved.That includes County Administrator Roman Gastesi, whos admitted paying cash for two iPads and two iPhones. Senior systems analyst Hank Kokenzie admitted paying cash for three iPads and two iPhones. At latest count, its believed 36 county iPhones and 12 iPads, conservatively valued at $15,000 combined, are unaccounted for. The State Attorneys Office subpoenaed the billing and technical information in an effort to track down whoever has those devices. Wilson said he wouldnt present evidence to the grand jury, empanelled last month, until those records are in hand. Its 21 members serve a six-month term. The whole point in presenting the matter to the grand jury is to let them have the final say and they cant do that unless they have all the facts that we obtain, he said. Druckemiller resigned Feb. 24. She was earning $75,489 per year.Thats holding up work of grand juryBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comIPAD/IPHONE INVESTIGATIONA weather beacon just off the coast near mile marker 111 showed 8.46 inches of rainfall.

Gracy also notified the other schools about what happened.Turns out, Glynn Archer Elementary in Key West, Key Largo School and the Treasure Village Montessori in Islamorada also were visited by several people with foreign accents, Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said. At Treasure Village, it was two women. It was the Sheriffs Office that called the FBI, and Superintendent Jesus Jara spoke with agents on Monday. We have pictures of them and turned those over to the FBI, he said.None of the reports indicated any threatening behavior by the people wanting the tours, Herrin said; the investigation was done just in case.Security on our school campuses is always of paramount importance to us, Jara said. When these incidents came to light, we promptly brought them to the attention of law enforcement and worked with them throughout their investigation. The conclusion that the visitors werent a threat was made in a meeting Tuesday with School District, Sheriffs Office and Key West Police Department personnel.Employees uncomfortableFrom Investigation,1ANOAAconference raises questionsLegal staff from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration went on a three-day conference in Philadelphia this week, but its unclear what the meetings purpose is, why the location was chosen and how much it cost taxpayers. The meeting has raised red flags within the agency, according to sources close to NOAAlaw enforcement, especially in the wake of the recent scandal plaguing the General Services Administration. That agency, which handles much of the federal governments procurement, came under intense fire after it was revealed that 300 of its employees went on an extravagant trip to Las Vegas, Nev., in 2010, costing taxpayers more than $820,000.The GSAs administrator, Martha Johnson, has resigned, and several top employees have been fired since the story made headlines and became the topic of congressional investigations last month.NOAAis the parent agency of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.Two sources familiar with the NOAAOffice of the General Counsel trip, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the meetings location may look suspicious, since there are no NOAAfacilities in Philadelphia other than weather stations. This means the cost of the trip hotel rooms, meals, travel would be paid for by the public.The conference was held at the Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown Hotel from Monday through today.Adam Issenberg, a section chief with the General Counsels Fisheries and Protective Resources Section, said Tuesday that the conference was taking place but that he is not in a position to speak to the press about the nature of the meeting. Issenberg referred questions to NOAAspokesman Scott Smullen, who did not return e-mails or a phone call by press time Tuesday. The Reporter/Keynoter also emailed three other NOAA spokespeople Monday and Tuesday with questions about the conference. Those e-mails were not returned by Tuesday afternoon. NOAA, which is part of the Commerce Department, is widely known, especially in South Florida, for its National Weather Service. But the agency also enforces federal fishing laws under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. Reported abuses in that role have drawn intense scrutiny over the past three years, especially from federal lawmakers in New England and the Mid-Atlantic.Spokeswomen for both Massachusetts senators, Democrat John Kerry and Republican Scott Brown, said their offices are looking into the Philadelphia conference. The former head of NOAAs law enforcement division, Dale Jones, resigned in 2010 after a Commerce Department Inspector Generals report detailed that NOAAagents harassed New England and Mid-Atlantic commercial fishermen with excessive fines and overzealous enforcement. Agents used a $7.5 million asset forfeiture fund fed by those fines to buy 200 cars, a luxury boat and foreign travel, according to the IG report. Jones, who shredded documents related to the investigation, remains on the NOAApayroll at another post.Few talking about meeting in PhiladelphiaBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comFEDERAL GOVERNMENTFishermen endorse small closure zonesAmeasure to ban lobster traps from a network of 60 small areas along the Florida Keys coral reef tract has earned a strong endorsement from a local commercial fishing organization.We are very much in agreement and support it wholeheartedly, said Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association executive director Bill Kelly.Aproposed amendment to the federal Spiny Lobster Management Plan in South Florida waters that would create the new zones has been opened to public comment, running through June 26.The new zones, which would allow diving and line fishing, seek to protect threatened elkhorn and staghorn corals from damage that could be caused by storm-tossed lobster traps. Staff from NOAA Fisheries Service and the [federal fishery management] councils worked with fishermen, scientists and managers to choose areas that would protect the most coral without overly restricting fishing, says a National Marine Fisheries Service summary.The combined area covered by the 60 areas covers a total of less than 6 square miles.We helped develop those sites so were very happy with the map as it exists, Kelly said Tuesday. Just about all the sites originally proposed were scrapped.Keys fishermen and conservationists said the original map covered too many sites devoid of hard coral, and overlooked other critical sites.Two of the new zones take in experimental coral-reef nurseries being tended by restoration experts. Kelly said fishermen, who generally avoid dropping traps near coral that could damage the gear, insisted on zones that would protect other corals expected to be classified as threatened in the near future. Ameasure sharply disputed by Keys fishermen a requirement that trap line be marked with color, to identify the fishery, by 2012 has been delayed until 2017 for revision. Kelly said the Keys fleet would have been required to replace 8,267 miles of trap rope at a cost to the industry of about $19 million, based on an average trap having a buoy rope 90 feet long. Aworking group will meet May 15 to consider alternatives to the first NOAAproposal.The Fisheries Service has given us wide latitude to consider new methods that would not create a financial burden to be labor intensive, Kelly said.Amap of the no trap zones, which range from North Key Largo to west of Key West, can be found at http://gulf council.org/resources/Spiny _Maps.php.

Our three [South Florida] congressmen have been badgered by the boat and bait people.South Florida representatives Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Mario Diaz-Balart testified against the National Park Services preferred alternative for the new Biscayne management plan, which includes a proposal to halt fishing to protect a marine ecosystem covering 10,522 acres, about six miles from North Key Largos Angelfish Creek.Closing off areas to those who pay for the management of these areas has to be the last thing to do, Diaz-Balart told the committee. If you have a small boat, you go to the places right next door. Thats who will be affected. U.S. Rep. David Rivera sat on the subcommittee. Kenneth Wright, vice chairman of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, told the FWC opposes the no-take zone and believes the state agency was ignored in Biscayne National Parks planning.The closure would unnecessarily prohibit fishing, both recreational and commercial ... on some of the most popular and productive fishing grounds in the park.Reduced nearshore fishing could affect a large number of Miami businesses, said Karl Crook of Crook and Crook Marine Supply. Stripping access and making closures is not the answer, Crook said. Curlett told the panel he sought a seat on the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council so he could oppose protected areas inside the sanctuary but has changed his view. I was dead set against them, he said. After eight years on the council representing recreational fishermen, Ive seen them work, both in the Dry Tortugas and at Carysfort Reef, right in front of my house.While Wright and other critics of Biscaynes preferred alternative said less stringent measures could be adopted, Curlett argued the national parks fish populations have been sorely depleted by the failure to respond to increasing harvest pressure.I heard testimony that there are other tools in the box, but where the heck are the tools? Curlett said in response to a question from Rivera. What tools have they used to bring it back? Biscayne National Park is a patient on life support, Curlett said. Giving it two aspirins and telling it to come back in the morning isnt going to work. Visitors come expecting to see an aquatic Yellowstone or Yosemite, he said. Thats what they deserve, but not what theyre getting. Curlett, a lifetime Republican, noted that South Floridas three GOPrepresentatives declined to accept his invitation to testify. Im a third-generation member of the party of Lincoln, and I had to get an invitation from a Democrat, he said. Most of the more than 18,000 written comments received support the closure, said Herbert Frost, associate director of the National Parks Service.16 square miles would be shut from harvestingBISCAYNE BAYWard: I broke election lawIncumbent Monroe County State Attorney Dennis Ward, seeking a second four-year term as the Florida Keystop prosecutor, admitted Monday that hes violated state election law.Ward said his campaign signs dont identify him as a Democrat; he said the fix is to either replace the signs or add the required word via stickers. The Florida Elections Commission, which investigates election complaints, doesnt comment on cases that are under review. However, Ward said he received notification of the violation and that Republican challenger Mark Kohl, a former Keys state attorney, filed the complaint. Theres no question about it that hes right, Ward said, adding that he didnt think it was a malicious move. Kohl declined to confirm he filed the complaint. Those are considered to be confidential, he said of elections complaints. I just dont believe its right to talk about it. The specific law Ward violated is Florida statute 106.143 regarding political advertisements. It says any political advertisement must include the name of the candidate, party affiliation and office sought. Ward said hes waiting for instructions from state officials on how to proceed. He doesnt know if he will have to a pay a fine. Running against Ward in the Aug. 14 primary is fellow Democrat Catherine Vogel, chief assistant when Kohl was state attorney before Ward. Ward, a former police officer, ran in 2008 on a platform of rooting out public corruption.Affiliation missing from campaign signsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comELECTION 2012Cates pushing Easter Seals site for KOTSMayor Craig Cates, continuing his bid to move the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter to city-owned property, has asked Key West staff to come with a relocation timeline, cost estimate and related data by June 5. Cates said a preliminary site survey indicates the shelter, which houses around 150 homeless men and women each night in tents at the Monroe County Sheriffs Office headquarters on Stock Island, would fit at the former Easter Seals building, 5220 College Road. It has to be somewhere, Cates said, and the community has to have a shelter.He cited the federal Pottinger vs. Miami lawsuit in 1998, the settlement of which meant police cant arrest homeless people sleeping, bathing, dressing and the like in public unless they were offered alternative shelter.This is the best place for it and well build a good facility thats permanent, Cates said of the Easter Seals building. KOTS, run by a consortium of nonprofit operators, is open from sun down to sun up. Cates envisions the new facility being open around the clock with a food-service component. St. Mary Star of the Sea Outreach Mission operates a soup kitchen on Flagler Avenue, which along with the restrictive KOTS hours, causes a sort of all-day migration from KOTS into Key West, then back. Im hoping we can bring the nonprofits in to help service the homeless there with guidance and things like that and feeding them there also, Cates said. People will stay there all day so theyre not coming and going and hanging out waiting for KOTS to open. Its going to be much better and this is the first step. Cates was set to pitch his plan to the Key West City Commission in a meeting Tuesday night. In October, the Southernmost Homeless Assistance League coordinated a transition of management at KOTS from the Florida Keys Outreach Coalition to a three-entity consortium comprising Samuels House, St. Mary Star of the Sea Outreach Mission and the Guidance/Care Center. KOTS, which costs the city about $400,000 per year to operate, was established in October 2004 after the city passed an ordinance banning camping in mangrove areas, leading to visible homeless encampments along South Roosevelt Boulevard.New location would include food serviceBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTMore parking stations going inIn a continuing effort to replace older single-head parking meters prone to mechanical failure, Key West city staff is set to install another round of 16 mid-block pay stations. The Key West City Commission was expected to approve on Tuesday night a $142,900 expenditure for the purchase and install of the newer meters, referred to as pay and display because once depositing money and printing a receipt, the motorist must place the ticket on his or her dashboard. City Parking Manager John Wilkins said there are 42 of the units already in place around the city and with the latest installation, there will be only 152 of the more familiar meters left on the streets. Wilkins said the conversion, started in 2009, is almost complete and has targeted high-volume parking areas. Now were down to a cleanup operation, he said. We will never be rid of every meter. Some blocks only have two or three ... so it just doesnt make sense. The new parking stations will go in on south Duval Street, United and Virginia streets just off Duval, Bahama Street between Eaton and Southard streets, on Whitehead Street between Eaton and Fleming streets, then on Green and Simonton streets near the Key West Bight.Single-head meters nearly thing of pastKEY WEST By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgKeynoter Staff

EDITORIALScott to get a Keys earfulLETTERS TO THE EDITORIncrease school taxesRe: Aproposed increase in school taxes:Yes, someone has to watch out for the kids. The Monroe County School Board elected not to approve a referendum for the August ballot allowing voters to determine whether to approve a property tax to help fund the School District.It projects a $6.2 million budget shortfall. The School Boards response to board member Ron Martins agenda item was to suggest that the district doesnt deserve the additional money because of past bad deeds. If the board does not feel it is capable of managing the district in a fiscally responsible manner, then those members should step down and allow those willing to hire accountable staff step in.Clearly the board has lost touch with reality and is acting in a self-centered fashion, considering themselves and their embarrassment rather than the well-being of the school children in our county.Not only are our youngest students less able to learn to read and write, but our juniors and seniors are missing necessary classes to enter four-year colleges and universities with the wellrounded education that many colleges seek in their incoming freshman.Our district laid off many teachers already and plans to cut 40 positions next year while limiting the number of substitute teachers and allowing classrooms with kids absent of instructors.One of the French teachers at Key West High School has been reassigned for a month to assist French/Creolespeaking students to take standardized tests while her Advanced Placement French class will have had no French teacher for a whole month prior to the APexam being given. It is bad enough that she has to teach two classes during the same period in two different rooms, but removing a teacher to be a translator is ludicrous when so many people in our community speak Creole and could be contracted to provide services.Surely, we can dig deeper to fund a tax to maintain a functional school system.Annalise Mannix Key WestHe made the right decision on sewer funds, now governor needs to address insurance fairnessWhen the Florida Cabinet comes to Marathon on May 8 for the first-ever Cabinet meeting held in the Keys, the stakes will be high. Having signed a state budget with $50 million approved for Keys sewers, Gov. Rick Scott can expect a hearty reception and public thanks. Given the long history of trying to get the state to pay on previous sewer funding promises, Scott deserves accolades for this breakthrough. We hope hes equally open-minded on the subject of windstorm insurance. Members of Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe want 15 minutes with the governor to talk insurance. They want the states top elected officials to hear about the crazy quilt system we labor under now with Citizens Property Insurance Corp. That state-backed, quasi-public company announced new rules on Tuesday that will make it far more expensive to buy windstorm coverage and shed as many as 678,000 policies statewide. Citizensgoal: Reduce the states exposure in the event of a catastrophic storm event. While that might sound like a fiscally reasoned approach, FIRM officials see it as prescribing the wrong medicine to fix whats wrong with Citizens. The reforms being instituted to reduce risk have unintended consequences that will damage our fragile, recovering economy, FIRM argues in a presentation its members hope to share with state officials during their Keys visit. Unlike most other areas in the state, Monroe County is pretty much at the mercy of Citizens as the insurer of last resort. When FIRM recently asked the state Office of Insurance Regulation to provide a list of private insurers that offer builders risk coverage in Monroe County, the agency drew a blank. Monroe property owners already pay among the highest rates for windstorm insurance of anyplace in Florida. To rub salt in that wound, Monroe claims rank near the bottom in reimbursements paid. From 2003 to 2011, covering two of the worst storm seasons in Florida history, Monroe County generated a gross profit (premiums less claims) for Citizens of $504 million, according to FIRM. Now, theyd like to see Citizens spend $350,000 on proper analysis to fix the badly flawed risk models the insurance companies (and Citizens) use now. After all, here in the Keys, the greatest damage comes from flood, not wind, and FIRM has the evidence to prove it: After Hurricane Wilma, [federal] flood insurance paid 14 times more in claims than wind insurance. FIRMs prescription: Fix the risk models and then private insurers will see the Keys as a good risk for private underwriting, especially given the history of posting the lowest loss to exposure ratio among coastal communities studied. That makes a strong business case for a governor, who prides himself on cost-benefit analysis. Lets hope hell listen and then act accordingly. The letter writer says residents would be willing to raise school taxes to maintain quality education. Board member insultingIn an article covering a recent Monroe County School Board meeting, your paper quoted School Board member Robin Smith-Martin as saying that anyone who doesnt support doubling property taxes for our schools is a greedy bastard. Well, he certainly has shamed me into wanting to open my pocketbook. I invite whoever is going to run against him to call me when hes up for re-election and well see if we cant dispel the idea that reasonable, responsible taxpayers who demand good stewardship of our money are indeed greedy, let alone bastards. I wonder if he has enough intelligence and book learning to be able to personalize my paraphrase of his quote: Stupid bastard. Glenn Gidseg MarathonFWC balances needsBalancing the needs and wants of our saltwater fishermen with resource protection that will last well into the future is a constant challenge for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. When population numbers for a species are low, we often have to make tough decisions, balancing the needs of the species with the needs of the fishermen. This may mean limiting harvest in an effort to rebuild that species for future anglers. But these difficult decisions can lead to great rewards and increased fishing opportunities, as we have recently seen. Thanks to years of successful management strategies, the commission was able to increase fishing opportunities for red drum and spotted sea trout in state waters. Nearly 2 million saltwater anglers live and visit Floridas 2,276 miles of coastline. These increases not only allow for better fishing opportunities, they also provide economic opportunities. Recreational saltwater fishing in Florida has an annual economic impact of $5.7 billion. Bait and tackle shops, charter fishermen, hotels and restaurants are just a few of the businesses that gain from the increased fishing opportunities as more anglers flock to the fishing capital of the world. The state has been managing red drum and spotted sea trout since the late 1980s through conservation measures such as bag and size limits, harvest seasons and gear limitations. The effectiveness of these tools is reflected in the populations of red drum and spotted sea trout. In the span of 20 years, red drum numbers have not only met our goals, but have been consistently exceeding them in the northeast and northwest areas of the state, where the bag limit was increased from one to two fish. Spotted sea trout numbers are also meeting our goals and are doing exceptionally well in the northeast region of the state, where the bag limit was increased from five to six fish. On Feb. 1, when the management changes for red drum and spotted sea trout went into effect, several other changes also took place, including the removal of all spotted sea trout recreational closed seasons and the expansion of commercial spotted sea trout open seasons. For some fishermen, the idea of increasing fishing opportunities has been a cause of concern. Many fishermen remember what it was like when these species were not doing well, and they do not want to return to those days. But to successfully manage a species means providing as many fishing opportunities as possible while maintaining sustainable fisheries. This is exactly what we are doing with red drum and spotted sea trout. Kathy Barco FWC chairwoman JacksonvilleCoverage is unfairI was very disappointed to see another Keynoter article about the proposed zip line for Crane Point Museum and Nature Center focusing on Crane Points side. Crane Point had one speaker at a recent Monroe County Commission meeting, John Henderson, the public face of the project since the outset. The opposition had two: Deb Curlee, a board member of Last Stand and a member of Crane Point, and Ron Miller, a member of Last Stand. Last Stand has raised the issue that the proposal violates Marathons landuse plan and it is time to stop giving Crane Point public money. Commissioners Murphy and Wigington understood that and decided that taxpayer dollars should not go to a project fraught with so many potential problems, including legal ones. The important issue that emerged in the meeting is that Commissioner George Neugent is a member of the board of Crane Point, according to Crane Points grant application to the Department of Economic Opportunity. In the presence of Crane Point board Chairman Lynn Mapes, he claimed not to be, or couldnt remember, or thought maybe hed been fired by Mapes. If Commissioner Neugent is a member of the board as claimed in the DEO application submitted in February, he should have abstained. If he is not a member of Crane Point, then Crane Point lied to the DEO about the configuration of its board. These are not small matters. Having a county commissioner on their board gives them stature, and indicating that the boards decision was unanimously in support of the zip line adds to the stature of their case. Commissioner Neugents lighthearted treatment of the matter was very offensive to those of us who have been working daily for nine months to expose the serious problems inherent in the zip-line project. Also, through his action, he did not live up to the standards expected of county employees who, when considering outside employment, for example, are guided by county policies to avoid situations that may reasonably be perceived by members of the public as a conflict of interest or otherwise discredits public service. As people in town are learning about the zip line, mostly via word of mouth because the press coverage has been so poor, we are hearing more and more complaints and indignation. If only the Keynoter had been reporting on this important local story on a regular basis, and giving both sides, more people would be raising ques tions. Beverly Welber MarathonHospital CFO resignsMichael Schimming resigned Friday as Fishermens Community Hospital chief financial officer, just six months after being hired.He felt like that he was going to be better suited doing a different assignment somewhere. We had a number of computer implementation issues and things and he felt like that was better handled on an ongoing basis by someone else, Chief Executive Office Hal Leftwich said. The Marathon medical center is nearly 10 months into a transition from for-profit lessee Health Management Associates to Quorum Health Resources. Schimming works for Quorum. The Fishermens nonprofit board owns the hospital and assumed financial responsibility for it on July 1. Thats when a 25-year lease with Naplesbased HMAexpired. Leftwich said there were no issues with how Schimming handled the hospitals finances. Ive talked to some folks at BB&Tthat might have had some issues, so they knew there wasnt any issue with the books or anything, he said. They made the initial loan to fund the transition. Most recently, Schimming was CFO for Allegiance Health Management in Shreveport, La., with more than 40 facilities including acute-care, long-term and critical-access hospitals like Fishermens, and in-patient and outpatient psychiatric units. He had also been CEO and CFO for a 118-bed hospital in Arkansas; CFO for a Baptist Health Care System hospital in Beaumont, Texas; and CFO for several HMAhospitals in Arkansas and Texas. Leftwich said he expects Schimming to be replaced within 10 days. He said the board is responsible for making that hire. Were continuing on with all the projects we had underway and trying to expand our medical staff to make sure the community has the care that it needs, Leftwich said.Bassett to TauntonKim Bassett, CEO of Fishermens Hospital for nearly five years, leaving when it transitioned from HMAto Quorum, has been named president of Morton Hospital in Taunton, Mass.In addition to her work at Fishermens, she served as a trustee on the Florida Keys Community College board, and had served as chief nursing officer at Lower Keys Medical Center after working at other hospitals in Florida, Missouri and Virginia. Morton is operated by Steward Health Care, headquartered in Boston.Schimming cites computer issues for departureBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON56 corals getting federal reviewCorals possibly threatened by warming oceans will be reviewed by federal officials over the next several months to determine if certain species should be ranked as threatened. Some of the most common corals along the Keys reef tract, including those known as boulder star and mountain star, will be included in the survey, required under a legal settlement with the Center for Biological Diversity, an environmental group. Some of the Keys corals are among 56 species ranked as likely to be extinct before 2100, says a status report issued April 13 by the National Marine Fisheries Service. Combined effects of rising temperature, increased incidence of disease and ocean acidification ... are likely to represent the greatest risks of extinction to all or most of the candidate coral species over the next century, a review summary says. The Center for Biological Diversity filed the lawsuit that resulted in protected-species status for elkhorn coral and staghorn coral, which currently are the only corals covered by the Endangered Species Act. Asettlement with federal agencies, the result of a 2009 lawsuit, mandates that the Marine Fisheries Service makes a determination by Dec. 1 which other coral species should be proposed for threatened status. Most of the 56 species are in the Pacific Ocean, but a handful of the Caribbean species including mountain star and boulder star are among those most likely to become extinct, according to an initial survey of ocean experts, the study says. These delicate corals need help, first with federal protections, then with dramatic reductions in carbon dioxide pollution, said Miyoko Sakashita, oceans director with the Center for Biological Diversity. The Center for Biological Diversity, based in Tucson, Ariz., this month teamed with the Turtle Island Restoration Network in filing a notice of intent to sue the federal government over loggerhead sea turtles, the most commonly seen Keys marine turtle. Florida beaches needed for loggerhead nesting should be designated as critical habitat for the protected turtles, the notice says.Result could be protection by the fedsENVIRONMENT By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org

Although some of the fees appeared before last years debit-card revolt, many more are making their debuts this year. There are nearly 50 different fees consumers can wind up paying, depending on the services they use and how they use them, according to some consumer advocateslatest estimates. Most of these fees are not the in-your-face charges, such as the debitcard fee that caused the big uproar, said Alex Matjanec, co-founder of www.MyBankTracker .co m, a consumer-finance information website. Many are flying under the radar. But they could have a big long-term effect on your money if you arent paying attention. Some banks have started charging for wire transfers, paper statements, prepaid cards, debit-card replacement and other services. Some even charge you now for closing an account or for making deposits using an iPhone. Dont be surprised if some banks eventually charge people just to apply for a loan, consumer advocates say. Banks are combining the new fees with increases in existing fees in an effort to make up for billions of dollars in revenue whose loss they blame on the federal financial-services overhaul, spiraling regulatory costs and huge legal liabilities such as the recent $25 billion foreclosure-fraud lawsuit settlement. For example, there has been a resurgence in overdraft and credit-card fees, both of which had dipped across the industry as a result of changes that took effect in 2009 and 2010. The banks have done a good job of convincing consumers that they just cant live without those [overdraft] services, said Gerri Detweiler, a Sarasota-based personalfinance expert for www.Credit.com an independent consumerfinance research service. Banks say they still provide customers multiple ways to avoid the vast majority of service fees, including the new ones. More than half of all U.S. bank customers pay no fees at all by maintaining minimum account balances, setting up direct deposits or signing up for other services linked to their accounts, according to a 2011 study by the American Bankers Association.Tipping pointStill, the fee issue has reached a tipping point for some consumers. Chris Erwin of Orlando said he closed his bank account at Wells Fargo & Co. last fall during the uproar over monthly fees for debit-card use. He also cited the Occupy Wall Street protest movement, which focused much of its energy on big banks. The Occupy movement kind of made me realize these big banks act more like investment banks, and you dont really know what they are using your money for, said Erwin, a 24-yearold home-security supervisor who has opened a member account at the Lake Mary-based CFE Federal Credit Union. It just seemed a much fairer thing to do, to go to a notfor-profit-type bank. According to a recent survey by Javelin Strategy and Research, more than 5.6 million consumers switched banks during the fourth quarter of 2011, including many who moved to credit unions or smaller community banks, both of which typically charge lower fees. The survey by the California-based financialconsulting company estimated that 610,000, or 11 percent of the total, did so as part of the grass-roots protest against big banks attempt to impose debitcard fees, while an additional 846,000, or 15 percent, changed because of objections to bank fees generally. Ahalf-dozen large banks either imposed or announced plans last year to impose $5 monthly fees on customers who used their debit cards to buy goods and services; ATM use was exempt from the fee. The banksactions stoked public anger still simmering from the federal governments 2008 bailout of major U.S. banks, and an online anti-fee petition drew more than 300,000 signatures. By early November, all of the banks had backed off their debitcard fees. Banks argue that surveys such as Javelins dont tell the whole story. Such studies neglect to report, for example, how many new accounts were opened at major financial institutions during the same time period.Banks defensiveIncreases in the number and size of consumer fees, they say, are the inevitable result of what they describe as government overregulation of their industry: Caps on fees charged to merchants, additional disclosure mandates and other financialservice changes have limited their revenue and boosted their costs.They defend higher costs, blame CongressMcClatchy-TribuneBANKING Bank of America quickly retreated on its plan to charge debit-card fees but now,financial institutions are looking all kinds of new fees even one to close your account.

Story, 3B B Sports & OutdoorsFishing CommunityLifestyleGeorges crowned champ in 400Clive Georges became the seventh Key West High track champion in an individual event when he won the 400-meter dash at Saturdays Class 2Astate meet at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville. Georges also medaled in the 100, the 220 and the triple jump, and fellow senior Lindsay Cowpland won a medal by finishing eighth in the girls discuss throw. An athlete had to finish in the top eight to receive a medal. Georges joins the previous Conch gold-medal winners Brittany Wagoner (2011, pole vault), Phillip Young (2009, 300 hurdles), Hunter Potalivo (2007, pole vault), Terrence Moore (2005, long jump), R.J. Anderson (2005, 400) and Hannah Richards (2003, pole vault). In the 400, he won in a personal-best 47.35 seconds, breaking Andersons record of 47.47 set in 2005. He edged American Heritages Teray Smith, whose time was 47.43. In the last 150 yards, he started pushing it, and I started pushing it, Georges said. His time was fifth-fastest in Florida this season Armon Hall, of Fort Lauderdales St. Thomas Aquinas, is first on the list, running the event in 46.41. Hes probably the best 400 and 200 sprinter Ive seen here, Key West coach David Perkins, whos been at the school 15 years, said of Georges. Georges also ran a personal-best 10.76 seconds to finish second to Orlando Jones Highs Levonte Whitfield (10.49) in the 100. He was fifth in the triple jump in a personal-best of 46 feet 9 1/2 inches. In his last event, he was fifth in 22.33 second (Whitfield won in 20.96). I had no energy left at all, he said. Headed to play football at the University of Arizona, Georges capped his Conch career by becoming the first Key West athlete to win four medals at a state meet. He also has a career seven state medals, a total matched only by Phillip Young. Ascholarship and a championship Im happy, said Georges, who wants to run track at Arizona as part of the 4x400 relay team. Cowpland went into Saturdays meet hoping to medal and break the school discus record. She did both, finishing eighth with a toss of 114 feet, 1 inch, bettering her personal best by almost two inches. Jacksonville BollesVictoria Reiman (131.7) was first. The old Conch mark had been held since 1996 by Anna Aschendorf. I got to meet her and we talked a lot on Facebook she gave me a few pointers, Cowpland said. Her goals fulfilled, she stood on the podium in front of her friends and coaches Rick Ridenour and Perkins. It was very nice, she said, adding, I hope to throw in college, though unsure where that will be.47.35 time tops all others at state meetBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorTRACK AND FIELD Pansky, McCoy medal at stateTwo Upper Keys runners scored Top 8 finishes at state-championship track meets last weekend. Yekaterina Katie Pansky, an Island Christian School junior, raced to a seventhplace finish in the 300meter hurdles at the state Class 1Ameet Friday at the University of North Florida. Panksy clocked a 47.56-second time in the final, where the top three finishers posted times under 46 seconds. Pansky earned a spot in the state final after a 47.04 race in the preliminary heat. Tavernier resident Joanna McCoy, attending Miamis Gulliver Prep for her senior season, ran an 11:42.3 for eighth place in the Class 2Astate final of the 3,200 meters, held Saturday at UNF. McCoy was the medalist in South Floridas Region 4-2Ain the distance event.Keynoter StaffEagles head to regionalAs runner-up in District 16-2A, Island Christian School travels to Westwood Christian for Thursdays opening round of the state baseball regional playoffs. The Eagles (7-8) fell to Colonial Christian in a 10-6 decision in the District 162Atitle game. Island Christian owned a 5-3 lead in the middle of the fourth inning. We had a few bad innings and let them catch up, said Eagle head coach Bruce Davis. We were in the game but it didnt go our way at the end. Kadian Carter, the only senior on the ICS squad, tripled and doubled for the Eagles. Left fielder Dylan Ayres drove in two Eagle runs with a single, and reached on a Colonial error. The regional playoff game at Westwood begins at 4 p.m. Thursday. The host Warriors, 15-2Achampions, carry an impressive 15-5 record. They beat us pretty bad last time we played and none of their seniors were there, Davis said. This time, theyll have the seniors. It should be interesting.

Pine Crest, a state semifinalist in 2011, topped the Lady Canes, 18-6. Our girls gave it everything they had and were incredibly supportive of the younger players who filled in, head coach Mark Hall said. But under the circumstances, six goals was about all we were going to get against them, Hall said. Julia Lozano, the Hurricanesleading scorer, put four shots into the Pine Crest net. Kaitlyn OLeary and Morgan Champagne each scored once. Several senior regulars missed the game because of a previously scheduled graduation-related event. Two seniors, top defender Cami Lopez and attacker Raisa Santiesteban, opted to play at Pine Crest. Cami forced four or five turnovers in yet another great game for her, Hall said. Coral Shores finishes the season with a 12-4 record, including an undefeated run through District 25 that ended with a district championship. It didnt end the way we wanted but that doesnt detract from whats been a stellar season, Hall said. These girls have a right to be proud. Lozano earned national attention by scoring 90 goals through 16 games 81 from the field and nine on free position (penalty) shots. She also delivered 22 of the clubs combined 44 assists, and her 105 ground balls led the team. It simply was an allAmerican-caliber performance by Julia, Hall said.

Youll find these gourmet delicacies anywhere from Hawk Channel out to the wrecks, rubble piles and artificial reefs. A favorite spot for many anglers is the reef edge. I typically aim to catch a limit of grouper while sitting on one of my yellowtail snapper spots. The grouper congregate in these areas as they, too, are looking to dine on the spawning yellowtail. The grouper aggregate bag limit is three per harvester per day in Monroe County in both Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico waters. No more than one fish can be a black or a gag, but all three can be reds. And there is a zero daily bag and possession limit for captain and crew on for-hire vessels. May also kicks the mutton snapper spawn into gear. This makes for some extraordinary catches from the reef out through the wrecks, with some of the largest muttons of the year showing up now. These fish are feeding aggressively, making them relatively easy to catch, so please exercise restraint and take no more than you can use. Permit are also holding on the artificial reefs and rock piles, but they must all be released unharmed for the next three months. On Aug. 31, 2011, the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission established a special permit zone in South Florida encompassing waters south of Cape Florida on the Atlantic coast and south of Cape Sable on the Gulf coast. They have imposed new regulations in Florida state and federal waters that include a closed season on permit in the zone during May, June and July. There are abundant quantities of tarpon at the bridges and in Key West Harbor. Live mullet, crabs and pinfish are all working well. If youre going to attempt to fish for tarpon on your own rather than with a knowledgeable charter professional, be aware of the code of etiquette. Come off your anchor and give space to a boat thats hooked up and chasing a fish. And if you see an anchor ball in a bridge span with no boat attached to it, that captain is off fighting a tarpon. Hell be back at some point, so dont anchor up in the same spot. These are just a couple of examples.The weeks bestTerry and Shane, from Spartanburg, S.C., hookedSeason opens after 4 months of a shut-downFISHING THE FLORIDA KEYSSee Canes,2BChris Johnson CaptainsColumn See Fishing,2B

The SeaSquared finished out April with tarpon and shark trips, and some mangrove snapper thrown in for dinner. We think we had a record number of Live Free or Die folks on the boat in one week, with three different groups hailing from New Hampshire. In addition, we hosted groups from Washington, Oregon, Georgia and Kentucky. Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moes Custom Charters in Key West, spent a little time offshore trolling ballyhoo and caught sailfish, dolphin, king mackerel and bonito. Inshore, the tarpon were around but shy about eating. Luckily, the big mangroves were plentiful and everyone had snapper dinners.

Cami is a consummate athlete, without question the best defender to have played lacrosse at Coral Shores, Hall said. To be able to take the ball away from an opponent, pick it up and go is a remarkable talent, he said. Nobodys been better at it here than Cami Lopez. Lopez had 37 forced turnovers as a junior, started on three district championship teams and was a multi-year team captain. She also played soccer and volleyball. Other lacrosse programs courted her, including Notre Dame College (where sister Vee plays) and Adelphi University. Lozano has verbally committed to Stetson for 2014.

Guys have been coming up and saying they cant wait for spring practice to start, second-year Hurricane head coach Ed Holly said Monday. We coaches are excited that Principal Dave Murphy asked us back. The players are excited to get back on the field, Holly said. Its a wonderful thing. The Canes have reason for optimism, with a host of veterans expected to return from last falls 5-5 campaign, the most successful football season at Coral Shores in several years. Theres been an unbelievable amount of interest in the program, Holly said. We could see at least 15 new faces out here. Coaches are allowed to conduct 17 field sessions during the spring season, leading up to a May 24 jamboree at the Canes home field with Marathon High School and Keys Gate Charter. Coral Shores also will stage a May 18 intrasquad scrimmage at George M. Barley Jr. Stadium. Spring is about stressing the fundamentals, getting better at blocking and tackling, Holly said. Coral Shores players will recognize the essentials of the Hurricane offensive and defensive systems, but will take another step. Its a program that carries over from one season to the next, Holly said. The terminology and formations will be exactly the same, so we hope to be able to carry over the lessons we learned last year. But its a system with a lot of flexibility, he said. As the team gels and creates its own dynamic, well adapt to the strengths of our personnel.New players mix with vets in TavernierCORAL SHORES FOOTBALLBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org Subscriptions 743-5551

Everyone Welcome, Bring a Friend! LivingJudy Blume explains the writing processIts been 40 years since Fudge, the irrepressible, trouble-prone toddler in Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, shook the world of childrens literature with his sticky hands. His creator, Judy Blume, is still going strong at 74 with her husband in Key West, working on a new book, a new film and her tap-dancing, all of which shes happy to discuss. Sounding more like an improv artist or jazz musician than a writer who likes to be in control, she invited questions from a reporter before a recent presentation in Dallas. I love questions; you always get something different! That may be because Blumes fans span generations from gradeschool readers to their parents and grandparents who grew up with her. Tales was one of her earlier works, followed by decades of best-sellers for children and adults. I didnt know what I was doing, she says cheerfully of Tales. I was so new at it. I couldnt even choose a title. I wanted to call it Peter, Fudge and Dribble,but I couldnt because there was a book called Peter Pottscoming out that year. Blume, a board member of the Key West Literary Seminar, bounces from her favorite television show (Mad Men) to biking (she loves it) to what shes reading she and her husband have never had a car trip go as fast as when we listened to The Hunger Gameson an audiobook. Her strength as a writer is having characters that talk to her, which has been going on since she was 9 years old, she says. I never question what I do or try to analyze it. I dont know how it works, but I have faith that it will keep working.First draftsAs clear and insistent as her characters are, its still usually hard for her to get the first draft of their story down. If someone had the power to grant me a wish, I would say that the first draft would magically appear based on whats in my head. The first draft is like getting the pieces of the puzzle in the box. The next draft is putting them together. And then you get to color them and build a frame and all those fun things. The one exception? Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, which just spilled out and it came out right the first time, she says. It didnt hurt that the youngest of her two children, Lawrence, was the inspiration for Fudge. Although she likes to point out: He wasnt really Larry; I just gave him some of Larrys endearing toddler traits. Perhaps Blumes most noted book is Are You There, God? Its Me, Margaret, about a young girl growing up in a mixed-religion marriage and learning about being a woman. Staying true to her characters has empowered Blume to write truthfully about them, delving into everything from racism to bullying to teen sex and divorce. It also has helped her avoid what she sees as the biggest pitfalls that can befall writers.Writing dangersThere are two dangers when youre writing. You cannot allow the censor to sit on your shoulder and you cannot allow the critic to sit on your shoulder. We can all write our own worst reviews. I can do it on anything Ive written. But you dont do that until your books are published. You just do whats right for the characters. Of course there are some things you cant make up. Like the fact that Fudge, er Larry, has grown up to become a respected film director who has adapted his moms books. Blume admits that she and her son clashed on their first effort, Sheila the Great, which she attributes to her own lack of experience with film. But the recently completed Tiger Eyes, the story of a teen struggling to come to terms with her fathers murder, has been inspiring, she says. By the time they finished with the screenplay and the shooting, she realized for the first time that when she wrote the book back in 1980, she was working through her grief over her fathers death of a heart attack when she was 21, just weeks before her first wedding. She has been happily married to her third husband, George Cooper, since 1987. She doesnt regret not having this epiphany earlier, even though seeing the movie has led her to cry my eyes out, she says. You have to learn along the way. I dont feel any older, I absolutely dont. I may stop when I look in the mirror and say, Who is that?But Im very happy so far the way things have gone.Key Wester also hits on Mad Men, Hunger GamesMcClatchy-Tribune BOOKS Judy Blume has made Key West her home for years.She continues a long tradition of noted writers getting inspiration in the Southernmost City.

Karen Weismantle, M.D., P.A. Jeff Wilderson, PA-C Try tropicalizing yoursirloinSteak when grilling, we usually just toss it on, throw some marinade on it and then pop it onto a plate when its done. But how about mixing it up a little, making it a bit tropical? Carne asada with confetti salsa will do the trick. The more time the sirloin tips bathe in this recipes punchy marinade of lime juice, Worcestershire sauce and garlic, the better. We call for marinating the meat for about two hours, but dont hesitate to toss them in as you head out to work in the morning. Youll be rewarded when you get home and crank up the grill.To save time, you could substitute a mango or other fruity jarred salsa for the one made as part of this recipe. But if you can spare the little time and effort needed to make it fresh, the results are well worth it. Our salsa is a chunky hodge-podge of bell pepper, tomatillos, avocado, mango, tomato and red onion, with a bit of heat from a chipotle chili in adobo sauce.For the meat: 2 pounds sirloin tips. 2 tablespoons lime juice. 1 teaspoon salt. tablespoons Worcestershire sauce. 2 tablespoons olive oil. 1 teaspoon ground black pepper. 2 cloves garlic, smashed. For the salsa: 1 yellow bell pepper, cored and diced. 3 tomatillos, diced. 1 avocado, pitted and diced 1 mango, pitted and diced. 1 large tomato, seeded and diced. 1/2 small red onion, diced. 1 chipotle in adobo sauce, minced. 1/2 to 1 tablespoon adobo sauce (depending on desired heat). 1 garlic clove, minced. 3 tablespoons lime juice. 1/4 cup chopped cilantro. Salt and ground black pepper. The cooking: In a large zip-close bag, combine the sirloin tips, lime juice, salt, Worcestershire sauce, olive oil, black pepper and garlic cloves. Shake to coat the meat. Refrigerate for two hours.Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine the bell pepper, tomatillos, avocado, mango, tomato, red onion, chipotle, adobo sauce, garlic, lime juice and cilantro. Stir well, then season with salt and black pepper. Refrigerate until 30 minutes before serving. Let warm to room temperature before serving.When ready to cook the steak, heat a grill to high. Drain the meat, discarding the marinade. Use paper towels to pat the meat dry. Sear on the grill, about four minutes per side for medium-rare. Serve with the confetti salsa.

MILITARY BRIEFS U .S. Marine Corps P vt. Eric Doerr, son of Michael Doerr of Key West and Christina De P riest of P roctorville, O hio, has completed 12 wee k s of basic training at Marine Corps R ecruit Depot, P arris Island, S.C. Doerr spent numerous hours in classroom and field assignments that included learning first aid, uniform regulations, combat water survival, mar k smanship, hand to hand combat and assorted weapons training. U .S. Navy L t. Mar k P G ander, son in law of Susan and Fred Cabanas of Key West, has been awarded the 2011 A viation B attle Efficiency A ward. H es attached to P atrol Squadron 10 in Jac k sonville. The award recogni z es a units training and opera tional achievements while including a balance that incentivi z es efficiency.Bring bu tter f lies into y o u rli f eFor a pro j ect that can get your family wor k ing and learning together and also help some beauti ful insects try a bac kyard butterfly garden. With j ust a little plan ning, you can create an attractive and welcoming habitat for butterflies through the warm weather months, says R ic k Mi k ula, author of The Family B utterfly B oo k (Storey P ublishing, 2000). The biggest problem facing butterflies is destruction of habitat, Mi k ula says. Even if your garden offers j ust a few butterfly friendly blooms in pots or containers, it can help the insectspopu lation and improve the loo k of your living space. A ny offering for but terflies in a garden, no matter how small, is li k e chic k en soup for a cold, he says. It cant hurt. The choice of nectar producing plants on which butterflies feed varies by region. B ut wherever you are, Mi k ula says, your options dont have to be fancy. Simple flowers such as varieties of Echinacea, daisies, asters and even some violets can serve as butterfly friendly snac king spots. Non invasive mil k weeds can be espe cially appeti z ing to migrating butterflies without ta k ing over your yard. Even one or two plants li k e that are going to be great because when the butterflies are moving, theres a place for them to stop, says Mi k ula. You can start your research with boo k s such as Mi k ulas, or by contact ing the Monroe County Cooperative Extension Service. O nline, try www.bug guide.net or www.butterfliesand moths.org recommends Nathan B roc k man, curator of the Christina R eiman B utterfly Wing of R eiman G ardens at Iowa State U niversity. There are some conces sions you may need to ma k e if you plan to entice butterflies into your yard, B roc k man says. O ne is understanding that caterpillars, the but terfliesoffspring, are going to eat host plants, including some herbs and vegetables you may have planned to serve at your own dinner table. P lant extra, and remember youll be rewarded for the sacrifice when caterpillars turn into fluttering butter flies. A lso, be prepared to give up the use of pesti cides on vegetable gar dens or lawns. Dont use any at all if you are truly gardening for butterflies, B roc k man says. Mi k ulas tip is to soa k tomato leaves overnight in water, then strain and spray the solution onto plants as an effective and organic pesticide that wont harm butterflies. B utterfly gardening can either be budget friendly or, Mi k ula says, it can be li k e buying a car and getting carried away with all the extras. Dont overloo k smaller, less costly nectar producing flowers that will entice tiny but attractive butterflies, he says. B roc k man suggests choosing plants native to their region. Theyre most beneficial to the environ ment and require less maintenance. Colleen Maiura, a spo k eswoman for L owes stores, says there are more ways to ma k e a garden hospitable to butterflies besides offering flowers. B utterflies li k e to bas k in the sun, so putting out flat roc k s near feeding spots can provide a perfect place for them to rest. While butterflies can get most of the moisture they need from feeding, many li k e to gather around puddles and wet places. You can offer a puddling station by sim ply creating a damp area of ground covered with sand. P lace stations where butterflies and you can easily see them, and where they are sheltered from the wind, Maiura advises. B eyond the sheer j oy you get when finding a butterfly in your garden, Mi k ula says, butterfly gar dening also can teach fam ilies about the life cycle of insects, and about caringfor plants and their envi ronment. The best part, he says, is that you will be doing the beautiful insects a world of good. Dont be disappointed, B roc k man cautions, if you dont draw a lot of butter flies right away. Keep at it, and try to get neighbors to grow a few plants that will encourage butterfly activity too.Your choices in plantings will attractAssociated PressTHE GARDEN The Utility Board of Key West recognizes the 13 student winners of Keys Energy Services' Energy Conservation Art Contest at its Wednesday meeting.The winning illustrations will be featured in the utility's 2012-2013 energy-conservation calendar. 9 Ct.Tanzanite W/Diamonds Peter Max Ladies 18K Pearlmaster, Diamonds Marc Chagall Large Diamonds Rolex Watches Itzak Tarkay H.C.
