WWW.KEYSNET.COM WEDNESDAY,MAY 16,2012 VOLUME 59,NO.39 25 CENTS Board of Education reversesFaced with plummeting scores on the latest, most rigorous state-mandated standardized writing test, the state Board of Education on Tuesday lowered the passing score in an effort to hold harmless districts and students. Last year the state board, which includes Key West resident John Padget, approved a more difficult Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test in writing and changed the proficiency grade from a three out of six to a four. Students in grades four, eight and 10 took the new test this spring and early statewide averages released Monday indicate fourth graders earning a 4 or higher went from 81 percent in 2011 to a staggering 27 percent this year. Older students didnt fare much better, with 52 percent of eighth graders earning a 4 this year, compared to 82 percent in 2011; 10th graders plummeted from 80 percent earning a 4 or higher last year to 38 percent this year. Padget, during an emergency conference call meeting of the board, said he would support a move which will essentially hold the schools and districts harmless this year in regards to writing. He addressed how the lowered cut score might be perceived: Optically, a change from a 4 to a 3 looks like were lowering standards. I for one am against that and Im only voting for this as kind of a hold harmless for this year only. On Tuesday, the Department of Education only released statewide average scores on the FCATwriting test; district-level results are still pending. Jesus Jara, superintendent of the Monroe County School District, earlier this year notified parents to expect lower test scores as test standards continued to increase. This week Jara said he was hopeful, the Florida Keys bucked the statewide trend, but didnt have district results yet to analyze. In 2011, the Board of Education moved to increase expectations regarding the correct use of standard English conventions and the quality of details provided as support, according to back-up materials distributed for Tuesdays emer-Rolls back scoring on state-mandated writing testsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comOUR SCHOOLS ISLAMORADAKeynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWBill Clemons honors his late brother,Clarence The Big ManClemons,by joining Jack Snipes (left) and the Family Fun Band at a Saturday celebration event of the Redbone Celebrity Fishing Series.Story, 6A FIRM eyes Keys-only insuranceCitizens Property Insurance Corp. President Tom Grady says he fully supports Monroe County putting its money where its mouth is when it comes to windstorm coverage. The watchdog nonprofit Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe, along with state Rep. Ron Saunders (D-Key West), are exploring the possibility of a Keys-only mutual windstorm insurance company. That means starting a company that is essentially owned by its policyholders. The [actuarial] models these companies are using are wrong. They dont take into account our building code and also the unique geography of the county. The likelihood of a storm affecting the whole Keys is slim, Saunders said. Saunders said he and FIRM officials pitched the idea to Grady and other state insurance officials at a May 8 meeting at Stanley Switlik Elementary School. The state contingent was in town for a Cabinet meeting with Gov. Rick Scott at the Marathon school. We said, You want to get rid of policies; it would help if we start this new company and well be happy to take the policies off your hands, Saunders said. These folks have clearly researched everything.

Skilled divers from several organizations then looped small plastic wire ties around the coral and the nail, securing the branches.The goal, explained Mote Marine Lab coral-science manager Erich Bartels, is not to repopulate the reef through outplantings of corals carefully tended at an offshore underwater nursery. We cant restore the reef that way, Bartels said. It would take tens of thousands of plantings. Our goal is to give the coral an extra push to help them get started, he said, so the branching coral can succeed during its once-a-year spawning.The staghorn corals, a threatened species, were carefully selected to ensure genetic diversity and arranged at the planting site so they would be in close proximity during the spawning.Mondays expedition led by The Nature Conservancy and Mote installed 50 new staghorn corals, raising to 300 installed at two Lower Keys sites, in about 25 to 30 feet of water. Newly transplanted corals dont do well in warmScientists worry federal funding wont be renewedENVIRONMENTBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comeBay offer: Ride em cowboyBack in March, a Cheeto shaped like a seahorse sold on eBay for $100, with the money going to Reef Relief in Key West. Now you have a chance to buy a chicken nugget shaped like a cowboy boot to benefit Keys Kops for Kids, a program of the Monroe County Sheriffs Office.Sgt. Dennis Coleman bought the nugget Sunday at the Dions Quikmart at 63rd Street and U.S. 1 in Marathon. He says I was about to start eating when I noticed one of the nuggets resembled a cowboy boot. So his first thought was preserving the nugget and putting it on eBay. Minimum bid is $5.Dont let this once-in-alifetime opportunity pass you by, Coleman says. Just go to eBay and type in cowboy boot nugget in the search box. The seahorse Cheeto was sold by Virginia resident Richard Schmidt to Pirate Radio of Key West. In one of the most famous of these eBay auctions, a woman sold her 10-year-old grilled cheese sandwich for $28,000 on eBay to a casino operator, who planned to display the oddity.The seller claimed the burn marks on the bread reproduced the image of the Virgin Mary.Then, in 2009, a South Carolina woman claimed an image of Jesus appeared on her grilled cheese sandwich. She told the Spartanburg Herald she had no intention of selling the sandwich, or of eating it either, calling it a daily reminder of my Christian faith.Chicken nugget shaped like boot brings in bidsBy LARRY KAHNlkahn@keynoter.comMARATHON This crispy critter being sold on eBay to benefit Keys Kops for Kids.See FCAT,2ASee Insurance,2ASee Coral,2A CONTRACT TALKSUnited Teachers of Monroe wants salary schedule to project pay cuts instead of losing more teachers.

In the run-up to a Thursday meeting of Monroe County School Districts superintendent search committee, opinions are split regarding Superintendent Jesus Jara and minimum qualifications to be considered. At the School Board level, where the qualifications were approved, Chairman John Dick and Vice Chairman Andy Griffiths both said Jara should be considered, despite not having served a full three years as a principal a job qualification approved by the board. At the committee level, member Steve Pribramsky, who served one four-year term on the School Board, told the Keynoter its crystal clear to him that Jara shouldnt be in the running.He wont make my shortlist, Primbrasky said of Jara. How can we do anything else? I read, with a minimum of three years as principal,as if you dont have three years, youre out.Jara, who was appointed to the Florida Keys post last year by Gov. Rick Scott, served as a principal for two years and 10 months at a Massachusetts high school. Griffiths, like Dick, said Jaras time as superintendent should outweigh the other deficiency and expressed concern with how the committee will handle the subject without any clear direction from the board. I think the biggest gorilla in the room that Im worried about is the committee having to wrestle with that qualification without clear direction from the board, Griffiths said, and dismissing the current superintendent. Dick said he didnt feel the need to provide the committee with direction and suggested that dismissing Jara based on his experience as a principal would be a big mistake. If the committee did that, he said, I think it would show the committee is seriously flawed. The search committee meets at 9 a.m. on Thursday at Marathon High School; Pribramsky said the goal would be to separate the 56 applicants into two groups-qualified and not qualified then continue to identify semifinalists for board consideration. This is the first time in the Keys the superintendent has been hired by the school board; a 2010 referendum changed that post to an appointed position from an elected superintendent model. Randy Acevedo was the last elected superintendent, elected in 2008. The following year, then-Gov. Charlie Crist removed Acevedo from office following his indictment on three official-misconduct charges. Acevedo was convicted of the felonies and remains on probation. Crist then appointed Jaras predecessor Joe Burke, who left last year to head Lee County schools in Southwest Florida. Earlier this year, Jara submitted his name for the Palm Beach County superintendent post, but didnt make the final cut of candidates for that position, which pays $225,000 per year. Jara currently earns $135,000 per year. Traffic in parts of Old Town Key West will be affected between 8 p.m. and midnight Wednesday as producers film a commercial for the Ford Motor Company.City spokeswoman Alyson Crean said staff of Recommended Media would stage and film a virtual race between two Ford Focus GTs running from the Southernmost Point to Mallory Square. This is part of an upcoming promotion dubbed Ford Coast to Coast. Although the cars wont be moving that quickly, the final product, through the manipulation of shutter speed, will create the illusion of a high-speed race.Crean said traffic will be closed for four hours on most of Whitehead Street, Caroline Street between Whitehead and Duval Street, the entire lower end of Duval and parts of Front Street.Police will be out in force to accommodate the filming, which is slated to involve two helicopters, and facilitate cross street traffic and pedestrian crossing between takes; barricades will also be in place along the route.

Ken Nediymer took part. His Coral Restoration Foundation in Tavernier pioneered the establishment of underwater nurseries to grow staghorn coral for replanting. Coral in the nurseries is carefully tended with regular visits by staff to keep the delicate organisms free of algae and safe from predation. Some of the nursery corals have grown naturally, but many others were rescued after breaking free from Keys reefs. Thats our big success, Bartels said. Were using coral of opportunityrather than letting them go to waste. The Keys corals nurseries, along with others in the Caribbean, proved restoration can be done, which is incredibly important, said Rob Brumbaugh, The Nature Conservancys director of Global Marine Restoration. It teaches us things about the coral reef that we didnt know before, Brumbaugh said. In the past three years, coral restoration efforts in South Florida, the Keys and U.S. Virgin Islands have been funded largely through a $3-million stimulus grant via the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration as part the America Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009. That grant shared by Mote Marine Laboratory, Nova Southeastern University, University of Miamis Rosenstiel School, the Coral Restoration Foundation and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission expires later this year. Future funding is being discussed but nothing is confirmed. Programs funded solely through non-profit donations possibly could continue in a limited fashion, organization officials said, but likely would face extensive downsizing. Were not just restoring habitat for natures sake, but for peoples sake, Brumbaugh said. Were making fish. That creates jobs for people who catch fish, and jobs for people who take divers to see fish.$3 million grant expires this yearFrom Story,1gency meeting. Board Vice Chairman Roberto Martinez, acknowledging the increased demands of the FCAT, said a change in the proficiency score was not a step backward. The rubric hasnt changed but the interpretation puts more emphasis on support and conventions. Although the digit has changed from 4 to 3, were obviously not retreating. It maintains equivalency with last year. Were just using a much more rigorous application of the scoring rubric. Christina McPherson, the director of assessment for Keys schools, said FCATwriting scores below the cut level, unlike some other sections of he test, do not trigger mandatory remediation. She said teachers, will utilize the writing scores to drive student instruction. Teachers will be able to identify skill deficits and provide strategies to improve writing skills. Keeps scoring used last yearFrom FCAT,1Ahave so much confidence in your building code and dealing with storms that the model used doesnt reflect the risks, Grady said of the meeting. But the catch is whether Citizens will agree to fund a feasibility study for the company, which Saunders estimates would cost $200,000. We have to work to find the money to get that done, Grady said. If it works in Monroe it might work in other parts of the state. Im very eager to pursue that.Founding FIRM member and Monroe County Commissioner Heather Carruthers said a mutual insurance company is just one of several ideas being pursued. We are also looking at shopping the business to other private insurers, she said. We are looking at the Keys-only entity or working within Citizens. According to FIRM, Citizens held 25,807 windstorm policies on 27,951 Keys buildings at the end of April. From January 2003 through March 2011, Keys residents paid $598.7 million in premiums versus $94.4 million in paid claims. Citizens, the state-backed insurer of last resort, has begun an aggressive depopulation campaign aimed at eliminating as many as 678,000 policies. Anumber of provisions from that plan are already affecting the Keys, including: Putting a $1 million cap on the value of a home Citizens would provide windstorm insurance to. Awide-ranging reinspection program by which Citizens sends inspectors to homes in search of safety deficiencies, leading to higher premiums. Denying windstorm insurance to homes intended to be rented out for seven days or less. The Keys are filled with vacation rental homes. New rules making it impossible for builders to obtain windstorm risk insurance for new construction. For years, FIRM has been fighting increasing windstorm rates proposed by Citizens.FIRM members are slated to attend a Citizens board meeting June 8 in Jacksonville.Private route may be optionFrom Insurance,1A Search committee faces split overqualificationsQuestions raised over experience as principalBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comOUR SCHOOLSCar commercial will impact driversFilm crew gets 4-hour window to stage raceBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST


In the wake of a letter writing campaign meant to preserve The Studios of Key West at its current home at the Key West Armory, there hasnt been any progress toward a compromise between the nonprofit and their landlord. The Historic Florida Keys Foundation leases the Armory to The Studios, which says it can no longer afford the annual rent of $143,204. Foundation board Chair Melissa Kendrick told the Keynoter nothing had changed regarding the lease terms but that the two sides were still communicating. There is no change at this point, Kendrick said Tuesday. But were still talking so thats a good thing. Staff at The Studios did not return calls or email for comment; board Chair Rosi Ware declined comment when reached on vacation in Europe. The armory building, at 600 White St., is owned by the state of Florida and managed by the Historic Florida Keys Foundation, which was established in 1972 and manages the armory, Old City Hall on Greene Street, the Harry S. Truman Little White House and the Oldest House on Duval Street. Although under a 10-year lease valid until 2018, officials on The Studios governing board have said they may have to move operation elsewhere by July 1, if they cant negotiate a reduction on annual rent at the Armory. Studios officials have told the Foundation they can only afford $116,244 per year. The $143,204 rental rate asked by the Foundation is based on $20.30 per squarefoot the rate being charged the Key West Chamber of Commerce, which occupies the first floor of Old City Hall on Greene Street. The Studios of Key West was founded in 2008 and moved into the Armory, then lost their major funding source, the Rodel Foundation. The arts/cultural organization provides studio space for artists; hosts concerts, lectures and a variety of workshops; and offers a number of residencies for visiting artists.

KEY WEST Armory building at 600 White St.is owned by the state of Florida.Alleged dog abuser goes on trial TuesdayThe trial of a Key Largo man accused of severely beating his dog two years ago is expected to get underway Tuesday. Noah Mitchell, 35, allegedly savaged the then8-month-old Labrador retriever puppy during a barbeque at his Pimlico Lane residence on Oct. 3, 2010. Witnesses at the gathering called a friend saying the dog, Bubba, was in very bad shape lying in his cage. That friend called Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputies. When police arrived, they found the dog barely alive. Sheriffs Office Sgt. Thomas Kiffney took Bubba to an emergency pet clinic in Miami-Dade County. The dog reportedly suffered fractured ribs, a damaged larynx and a collapsed lung. He was put on a ventilator machine for several days and given pain medication. The arrest report at the time stated Mitchell performed a knee drop wrestling move on his pet. Mitchell was charged with a third-degree felony animal cruelty charge. He pleaded not guilty, and said he injured an out-of-control Bubba while trying to subdue him. Witnesses, however, told police Mitchell got angry after Bubba took a steak from a plate. Mitchell and his attorney, Key West lawyer Donald Barrett, could not be reached for comment by press time Tuesday afternoon. Mitchell is scheduled to stand trial on Tuesday, May 22, at the Plantation Key courthouse, according to Terri Hunnewell, prosecutor with the Monroe County State Attorneys Office. The trial is expected to continue Wednesday, and a half-day Thursday has been set aside if needed, Hunnewell said. If convicted, Mitchell could serve up to five years in prison. People in the pet-friendly Keys paid close attention to Bubbas story when it was first reported in the fall of 2010. Kiffney started an account at First State Bank of the Florida Keys to pay for Bubbas medical expenses, and several other residents began fundraising efforts for the dog. Mitchells original attorney, public defender Jerome Gilhooley, was so concerned about the attention the case was getting that he worried his client could not receive a fair trial in the Upper Keys. Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia, at a hearing in late October 2010, warned all involved parties at the time to be careful how they talked about the case to the press. I am going to admonish everyone to not make extrajudicial comments in the media about this case. In a small community, you have a small jury pool and its important that when this case goes to trial, were able to pick a fair and impartial jury, Garcia told Sheriffs Office deputies, prosecutors and defense attorneys.

Manuel Castillo, Sr., Executive Director Bridge jumper dies after rescueALake Worth man apparently distraught about his personal life died Thursday after leaping from the top of the Channel Five Bridge.Stephen Gius, 50, left a note behind in the white sport-utility vehicle he abandoned at the crest of the bridge, south of Islamorada. On one side, it said, I lost my wife, my business and my dog.On the other side it said, Sorry Mother, related Deputy Becky Herrin, information officer for the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. Gius initially survived the 65-foot drop to the water but battled marine Deputy Michael Cofield when the officer reached the scene aboard his patrol boat.Deputy Cofield pulled beside Gius and started to pull him into the patrol boat. Suddenly Gius started to fight with him, Herrin said. He broke away from the deputy and began to dive under the surface of the water.Assisted by two women on a nearby fishing boat, Cofield was able to grab Gius by the belt and pull him aboard.An ambulance met the boat and took Gius to Fishermens Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The incident started at 11:15 a.m. when motorists reported that a white SUVwith a hose leading from the tailpipe to the vehicle cab was driving south near mile marker 70. The SUVthen sped north onto the bridge, until it stopped at the top.ISLAMORADATeachers union wants pay detailsLeaders of the United Teachers of Monroe union said they are fine-tuning a budget proposal intended as an alternative to cutting more teacher positions. To that end, UTM President Holly HummellGorman said Tuesday she had initiated a public records request with the district asking for detailed salary schedule information. She said those figures would be used to index pay cuts across the board, an idea the union floated earlier this month during a bargaining session held at Coral Shores High School.Hummell-Gorman said the goal was to make the proposed $6.2 million in cuts proposed by superintendent Jesus Jara proportionate for everybody.The first step, she said, is to isolate specific dollar figure cuts. Leon Fowler, UTMs former president and current business agent, didnt have those exact figures, but said he was working out a detailed proposal to bring to school administrators.Fowler said the root of the problem was years of deficit spending: Theyve got to quit spending money like theres no tomorrow. I just dont understand why we cant get there?Monroe Countys school system is projected to take in $74.3 million in revenues for the 2012-13 budget year, which begins July 1, but total expenses are expected to be about $83.5 million. In describing the index system, Fowler gave an explanation pegged to starting salary of $40,000 a year; using that as baseline, all employees would take a pay cut based on dividing their current pay by $40,000. An administrator earning $80,000, for example, would see annual pay reduced by $2,000. Abus driver making $20,000, by contrast, would lose around $500 a year, Fowler said. The next bargaining session between union and administration is set for May 21, beginning at 10:30 a.m. in room 6209 of Marathon Middle/High School. OUR SCHOOLS By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com Hospitality Expo relatively quiet affairWith the exception of a large ice machine crashing down a flight of stairs at the Postcard Inn at Holiday Isle, this weeks two-day Hospitality Expo proved to be relatively tranquil. It was pretty quiet last year so we didnt get excited about this year, said Deputy Becky Herrin, information officer for the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. Hundreds of workers from restaurants, bars and other venues from South Floridas hospitality industry turned out for the official event Monday and Tuesday. Vehicles lined the Old Highway on Windley Key, but the sometimes raucous anchoring spot at The Sandbar attracted only a few dozen boats. Marine law-enforcement units from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Sheriffs Office were on hand, just in case. You never know what to expect so we had to be ready, said FWC Officer Bobby Dube. But there were no fights or serious medical emergencies unlike other years. The host Holiday Isle and several other nearby bars contracted with off-duty officers for extra security, which probably helped keep things calm, Herrin said. Around 10:15 p.m. Monday, an ice machine at a Holiday Isle motel building was shoved down a flight of stairs, leaving the $4,000 machine in pieces, noted a deputy. Franklin O. Burgos, 28, of Fort Lauderdale was charged with felony criminal mischief. Marine Deputy Nelson Sanchez arrested a 26-yearold Miami man for possession of cocaine Monday, after finding a small bag of the drug during a boat safety check. FWC officers reported one arrest for boating under the influence, and a man taken into custody on an outstanding warrant.Few arrests compared to prior yearsISLAMORADATitle agent faces 90 years in jailAn owner of a mortgage title company with offices in Homestead and Key Largo is facing up to 90 years in prison for allegedly stealing money from one of her clients escrow accounts. State Division of Insurance Fraud detectives say Marie L. Girard, 52, owner of Girard Title Company, used more than $580,400 from a Minnesota clients mortgage escrow account for her own personal use. The couple, Paul and Peggy Bruci, did not discover what was going on until they received a notice of foreclosure on their home they refinanced through Girard on Buttonwood Circle in Key Largo. Detective John Swope wants to know if there are any more victims out there. If you suspect you were victimized by Girard or any other title agent, call (954)-3212995. Girard could not be reached for comment. According to Girards arrest warrant, Girard was the closing agent for the refinancing on the Brucis home in May 2008. The couple was obtaining a loan from Bank United FSB for the house. Girard was acting as an agent for First American Title Insurance Company. That company was responsible for paying the Brucis first mortgage under the refinancing agreement, according to the arrest warrant submitted by Swope. On May 28, 2008, Girard allegedly filled out forms stating the Brucis $508,000 mortgage was paid off. But Swope said Girard instead converted the entire $584,000 from the Bank United loan to herself. According to the warrant, Girard changed the Brucis mailing address for the borrowers monthly mortgage payment information to her Key Largo office at 230 Homestead Avenue. Swope said she then used the Bank United money to pay mortgage payments on that Key Largo office. In February 2009, Girard met with an attorney for First American Title and admitted misappropriating the escrow funds. She worked out an agreement with the company to repay $112,726 up front and to take out mortgages on her two offices to repay the remaining $389,422 balance for the Brucis mortgage before it was refinanced. Since that money was never actually paid to the original lender, First Magnus Mortgage, First American was on the hook for the funds.Girard allegedly promised to pay First American the balance by Feb. 12, 2009, but instead allowed the mortgages on both her offices to default. She is facing one grand theft charge, one charge of misappropriating funds of more than $100,000 and one charge of misappropriating escrow funds. Each charge carries with it up to 30 years in prison. At press time Tuesday, Girard was being held on $175,000 bond.State charges she diverted escrow fundsBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com KEY LARGO Keynoter Staff

EDITORIALSigns improve outlook for Keys real estateLETTERS TO THE EDITOR GUEST COLUMNCanals much cleanerIf I hadnt seen it with my own eyes I wouldnt have believed it. Its only been a couple of months since the sewers were hooked up and septic tanks closed on Stirrup Key. The homeowners association also installed some aerators to improve the water quality. Well, word got out to our marine life and for several days we have had dolphins swimming up and down the canal. They were followed by several huge manatees and on a recent night, tarpon were feeding on schools of bait fish. We can now see the bottom of the canal, as the clarity has improved immeasurably. Like I said, I wouldnt have believed the change possible. Granted, we have full-moon high tides but no one can remember when dolphins were last seen coming in from the Gulf of Mexico and playing or feeding in the canal. That view alone is worth the price of the sewers. We may soon be able to swim again without worry of nasty fecal bugs. I can only guess what was leaching out into the canal prior to the sewers. Agreat positive step for our environment. Thanks for letting my grandkids see dolphins in their back yard. Bob Guerin MarathonGentlemen,stand upOn April 19, the Monroe County Domestic Abuse Shelter launched the Les Faust and Randy Hendrick Gentlemens Circle in support of violence-prevention efforts in Monroe County. On behalf of our board of directors, our staff, our volunteers and especially on behalf of the many women, children and men in desperate need of our shelter, emergency services and case management. I cannot thank this community enough for their support. The Gentlemens Circle is a donor society made up of those who believe that people should be respected and never ever assaulted, and who support that conviction with a financial investment to the Domestic Abuse Shelter. The Gentlemens Circle provides funding for programs that educate and model healthy attitudes, beliefs and actions that respect women, men and children. What does this contribution mean to the Domestic Abuse Shelter? It means that one day, the fear and the threat of domestic violence will not exist for those we serve or those the Domestic Abuse Shelter would be called to serve. We are grateful for the community support for this initiative. The first Gentlemens Circle reception, at the home of Bernadette Restivo, made a strong statement to the growing support of violence-prevention efforts. This event could not have happened without the generous contributions of the Tasters Grille, Chef Michaels, Gallery 84 (the incredible talent of Wood Campbell and Liz Queenie), Holly Hight and Shell World. This Gentlemens Circle could not have launched without the significant financial contributions of more than 20 donors to date. We wish every person living with violence could see a positive ending with a positive solution. Today, thats not the case. We invite our community to join us in these efforts where fear and despair are replaced by assurance, hope and possibility. Thanks again to those who are willing to stand up for those who cant yet stand up for themselves. Venita Garvin Valdez, CEO Monroe County Domestic Abuse ShelterIncreased mortgage volume, historically low rates signal a cautious recoverySo, is the worst over when it comes to the real estate crash that hit the Florida Keys? Depends on who you ask. The tax roll scheduled for release in July may actually show property values relatively flat from the previous year. But, at least its not showing signs of further erosion, which has been the cold reality hereabouts for the past three to four years. There are other positive signs emerging. In Saturdays Keynoter we published the real estate sold list for the week ending May 5, and that showed sales volume 38 percent ahead of last year for the same one-week snapshot. This reflects several factors all working at once:interest rates are at historic lows, making it easier for borrowers to qualifybanks have begun moving off their books those properties hanging in limbo, including shortsales and foreclosuressellers have become more realistic on prices. When that happens, buyers are enticed back into the market, figuring they dont want to miss that hypothetical bottomAs rental rates increase, the formula for determining if its better to rent or buy begins to signal owning as a better financial choice, especially if the buyer is not planning to move anytime soon The Zillow Home Value Index, which tracks real estate price movement in virtually every community across the country, reported home prices on the upswing in South Florida. Both Miami and Phoenix were singled out for year-over gains. Stan Humphries, chief economist for Zillow, said: Were seeing home value appreciation rates which are quite frankly surprising at this stage of the recovery. Miami home prices rose 1.1 percent year-overyear by the end of March, according to the latest figures available. Here in the Keys, that year-overyear gain was half that at .5 percent. But, still it was a gain. As you might imagine, the improvement in home values varies by area. Based on the Zillow Index, Key West topped with 11.4 percent increase, which led all other areas. Big Pine edged out Big Coppitt 3.9 percent versus 3.8 percent in the same year-over comparison. Areas with negative home values on Zillows March Index: Key Colony Beach (-7 percent); Tavernier (-6.2 percent); Key Largo (-3.9 percent); Marathon (-down 2.0 percent). What does all this mean? Well, it looks like another year of keeping our belts tight before we see any significant improvement overall in the real estate market. Amighty slim .5 percent increase wont bring shouts of joy. But, given heavy losses experienced the past three years, well take that and be glad.CEO Venita Garvin Valdez thanks Les Faust for helping launch the Gentlemans Circle. The rugose spiraling whitefly is starting to return, creating a sticky situation in Key West, some Lower Keys islands, Marathon, Islamorada and now in Key Largo. We will have a free workshop on how to control the whitefly on May 18 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Marathon Government Center. Dr. Catharine Mannions a whitefly expert who will be able to provide you with the latest information about whitefly control for landscapers, pest-control operators and homeowners. So how did this insect get here? I speculate the whiteflies may have come in on landscape materials imported into the U.S. In the spring of 2009, the Miami office of the U.S. Department of Agriculture first noticed the whitefly in Miami-Dade County. These particular whiteflies are not known to kill the plants, but if you have a plant die with whitefly present, you need to determine if it was the whitefly or the pesticide treatments used to combat the pest that killed the plant. There is no doubt that this insect is certainly a sticky nuisance and causing stress to plants. This stress will be worse if these plants are not watered, fertilized or pruned properly. The whitefly population on a tree grows to a point that the leaves turn white. The adult and immature whiteflies feed by sticking their mouth part into the leaf surface and sucking out the plant juices. Its fecal material is honeydew. The honeydew drips on everything below the trees cars, pool decks, sidewalks, other plants, etc. Then a fungus called sooty black mold feeds on the honeydew.The best long-term control for the rugose spiraling whitefly is beneficial insects. Where the whitefly has been present for a year (Key West, Marathon and parts of Islamorada), the beneficial insects are being found in larger numbers. University of Florida entomologists have identified two beneficial insects:Aparasitoid wasp, encarsia guadalupae (the size of a gnat). The female wasp lays an egg in a live immature whitefly. The egg hatches and stays in the protection of the whitefly, killing it and cutting a pinprick hole in the dead whitefly, emerging as an adult wasp.The predatory beetle, nepasphis oculata (size of a grain of sand). This walks along the leaf surface feeding on whitefly eggs. Both beneficials are best seen with a magnifying glass since they are nearly invisible to the naked eye. These insects are found naturally in South Florida but are not available for purchase commercially. For all stages of the whitefly infestation, it is possible to manage it with a strong stream of water or power washer. This will dislodge eggs and mangle adults. But you must first check that the water force is not too strong to shred leaves. Test on a small portion of the plant before applying throughout the entire plant. The University of Florida recommends:Scout for beneficial insects. If they are present, then try to limit your control methods to strong streams of water, insecticidal soaps or horticultural oils.Dont bring whitefly-infested plants or trees home from the nursery. Choose trees and shrubs that are not prone to the insect.Properly prune infected branches. No hat-racking and no removal of palm fronds above an imaginary clock position of 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Then doublebag the waste and take it to the curb on days that regular household trash is collected, not on yard waste days.If you choose to use chemicals, use the least-toxic products first (horticultural oils and insecticidal soaps) and then the contact foliar sprays or systemics. Follow all label directions. It is recommended that homeowners start with the least-toxic option first, such as an insecticidal soap or horticultural oil, like neem oil or Organocide. Or try a homemade solution of 1 gallon of water, 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil and 2 tablespoons of baby shampoo. As summer temperatures get over 80 degrees, this can burn the plants leaves (turn the leaves brown). So try it on a small portion of the plant and wait three days; if the leaves are still green, proceed with caution. Either can be applied to the leaves with a spray bottle or pump-up sprayer. When using a foliar or systemic chemical product, keep in mind the cost of using it. This would be in terms of money out of your pocket, natural enemy and honeybee mortality, the damage to the plant to which you are applying it to and the environment into which you are putting it.Homeowners should be cautious when treating whiteflies by taking notes and documenting what is being done because it is so easy to forget dates.Visit the Monroe County Cooperative Extension Service website at http://monroe.ifas.ufl.edu to get the latest fact sheet on this pest or call me at 292-4501 to discuss your situation. Kim Gabel is the horticulture agent for the Monroe County Cooperative Extension Service.Whiteflies are back, but proceed with caution GABEL Sweet music serenades sweet causeSince it might not be a Redbone Celebrity Series celebration without a Clemons on hand, brother Bill stepped in Saturday at the Lorelei in Islamorada. My brother loved the Keys, and the Keys loved him, Bill Clemons said of the late Clarence Clemons a musical giant in both performance and stature. Clarence Clemons, a parttime Marathon resident and ardent supporter of the Redbone series to benefit the fight against cystic fibrosis, died in June 2011 following complications from a stroke. He was 69. He just wanted to share the love, said Bill. Clarence had friends all over the world, and Ive never heard anybody say a bad word about him. Bill Clemons, 66, brought his saxophone to join Big Richard and the Family Fun Band on the Lorelei docks Saturday as part of the Redbones Fruits of our Labor celebration. Nearby hung a large photo poster featuring some of Clarences Redbone moments. The Saturday dinner included the ceremonial presentation of more than $1 million to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for a years worth of Redbone events. When we donated $15,000 the first year, 24 years ago, we thought we were doing great, said series founder Gary Ellis. Now weve topped $1 million for seven years. While Clarence Clemons earned fame as a 40-year member of Bruce Springsteens E Street Band, brother Bill, 66, took his musical talents to the U.S. Marine Corps. We all have a purpose and oursis music, said Bill. Even when Clarence was playing football in college, he was playing in a jazz band at night. Their one sister was a singer. Clarence kept telling me that he was going to hit it big, Bill laughed. Then in 1971, he met this guy named Bruce. That relationship lasted 40 years. Once Bill received his draft notice, he opted to join the Marine Corps, which led to duty in Vietnam. There were some close calls, he said. We had multiple duties but every Marine is an infantryman, Bill said. We went to where the attack was. I carried my M-14 [rifle] and my flute. Inspired by the Marine Corps band, he stayed in the service to become the Marine Corpsfirst black band director, performing for five presidents. I went in as a private and came out after 20 short years as a captain, he smiled. Holder of several degrees, Bill Clemons later went on to teach music at Old Dominion University in the Clemons native Virginia, and at Arizona Christian University. He established a successful music program for homeschooled students, elementary through high school. Bill lives in Arizona with his wife of 41 years, Patricia. They are proud of all five of their children, but one has been in the news of late. Jacob Jake Clemons, a saxophonist, has joined the 2012 tour of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.ISLAMORADABy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comRedbone series tops $1 million for cystic research NEWS BRIEFSSeven Keys cops complete Unity TourSeven police officers from the Keys completed the Unity Tour held in Washington D.C. to honor law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. Acandlelight vigil and ceremonial reading of names of the deceased completed the tour Sunday evening outside the National Police Memorial in downtown D.C. Capt. Penny Phelps of the Monroe County Sheriffs office reports the streets were lined were people along the route, which stretches from RFK Stadium to the memorial site. Groups of school children and adults cheered as the motorcycle units passed by, Phelps said. It was an experience that made every ache, pain and uphill struggle during the ride worth it, she added. Each rider participating rides in honor of a fallen officer, wearing a special bracelet which is then presented to the family of the fallen officer at rides end. Members of the Monroe County contingent escorted survivors to a special candlelight vigil held Sunday night. The Keys officers were part of the Unity Tour Chapter VIII, representing the southern states, which sent 180 riders to D.C. That chapter raised $200,000 for the Unity Tour cause.

The lack of g overnment re g ulation allows errors that wron g ly deny thousands of people the chance to buy homes or cars, take out a colle g e loan, receive medical care or even open a checkin g account, the Columbus Dispatch wrote. The report is the first of four parts lookin g at the three lar g est national credit-reportin g a g encies and the lack of federal re g ulation over the reportin g system.The newspapers yearlon g investi g ation collected and analyzed nearly 30,000 consumer complaints filed with the Federal Trade Commission over 30 months be g innin g in 2009 and with attorneys g eneral in 24 states in 2009 and 2010. The newspaper said it requested complaints from all 50 attorneys g eneral, but some states dont make the records public, some did not cooperate and others char g ed fees that were too hi g h.The complaints alle g in g violations of the Fair Credit Reportin g Act by Equifax, Experian and TransUnion document how consumers across the country have failed to g et even obvious mistakes such as wron g birthdates and names corrected.More than 5 percent of complaints to the FTC and more than 40 percent of those to attorneys g eneral say reports had wron g personal information. An Ohio man born in 1968 complained that his report identified him as havin g been a police officer since 1923. Nearly 200 people complained to the FTC that their credit reports listed them as dead, preventin g them from accessin g credit. Almost a fourth of the complaints to the FTC and more than half of those to attorneys g eneral involved mistakes in consumersfinancial accounts for credit cards, mort g a g es or car loans. Car loans that had been paid off were reported as repossessions, and credit cards that had been paid off showed up as delinquent. The newspaper also reported that more than 5 percent complained to the FTC about accounts wron g ly listed as belon g in g to them, and more than half of all who filed complaints with the FTC said they could not persuade the credit-reportin g a g encies to fix problems. Paul Pierce, 51, of Daytona Beach said he be g an receivin g phone calls in 2007 from an a g ency tryin g to collect more than $2,000 in cellphone debt belon g in g to Paul Louis of New York. Pierce kept receivin g payment demands and three years later found that the debt on his credit report. He said Experian kept tellin g him it was his debt. The debt wasnt removed from his report until he complained to the Florida attorney g eneral. Estimates of those experiencin g errors ran g e from less than 1 percent from an industry-funded study to 25 percent by consumer advocates, the newspaper reported The Washin g ton-based Consumer Data Industry Association speaks for the three credit-reportin g a g encies. Stuart Pratt, the trade g roups president and chief executive officer, questioned the validity of conclusions derived from self-reported complaints that he says the FTC makes clear are unverified. He also said the creditreportin g a g encies estimate that at least a fifth of complaints are from people tryin g to have ne g ative but accurate information removed. Pratt also told the newspaper that credit-card compa-nies and other creditors who send account updates to the a g encies share the blame for any inaccurate information. The Fair Credit Reportin g Act enacted in 1971 provides little help to consumers. It does not require error-free credit reports, and creditreportin g a g encies do not face penalties for reportin g inaccurate information. The law does require credit-reportin g a g encies to investi g ate consumer-reported errors, but does not say how the investi g ation will be handled. Filin g a lawsuit is about the only option consumers have to fi g ht a system in which they are presumed to be at fault, accordin g to the newspaper. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, a Republican, who said the newspapers findin g s were stunnin g and infuriatin g , has asked attorneys g eneral in other states to join a multi-state investi g ation into the creditreportin g system.Basic info like birthdates,names often incorrectMcClatchy-TribuneCONSUMERS KEYS AGENTS GO TO RETREAT Barbara Kruszelnicki,Joy Martin,Carolyn Ambler,Susan Recarey and Stephanie Clark attend the 10th annual Luxury Real Estate Spring Retreat in New Orleans April 24 to 26.Kruszelnicki,Martin,Recarey and Clark are with Marr Properties while Ambler is with American Caribbean Real Estate.

AMassachusetts senator and frequent critic of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is calling for leadership change at that agency and a review of its travel policies based, in part, on an exclusive Reporter/Keynoter report last week about a questionable Philadelphia conference.NOAAs the parent agency of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.Republican Sen. Scott Brown wrote a letter Thursday to John Bryson, secretary of the U.S. Department of Commerce, NOAAs parent agency, saying his office still has not been told the reason for the location of the April 30 through May 3 conference, attended by 135 members of NOAAs Office of General Counsel. NOAAhas no offices except for weather stations in Philadelphia, and sources familiar with the conference said all hotels, travel and meals were paid for with taxpayer money. NOAAhas not responded to repeated questions about the cost of the conference or the official agenda. Brown said his staff has also been unsuccessful in finding out any specifics about the meeting. Given that NOAA General Counsel is based primarily in Washington, D.C., and Silver Spring, Md., I asked for the agencys rationale for holding the conference in Philadelphia, Brown wrote. As of today, I still have not received any explanation for the location of the conference. Yet again, NOAAs actions fall far short of the transparency that all federal agencies owe to the American taxpayer.NOAArepresentatives did not return phone calls and emails for the May 4 story on the conference. But Thursday, spokesman Scott Smullen sent an e-mail response seven days after first being contacted by The Reporter stating that Philadelphia was chosen based on total cost, available date, location and accessibility.Smullen said General Counsel attorneys work in offices in 13 sections in eight geographically dispersed areas throughout the country. Smullen did not say how much the conference cost or offer more specifics about the meeting. Magician wantedBrowns letter was also in reaction to a story published in Government Executive magazine last week reporting that the agency placed an advertisement on the Federal Business Opportunities website seeking to hire a magician at between $3,000 and $5,000 to perform at a conference in June. The agency pulled the wanted ad after Government Executive published the story. The website is run by the federal governments procurement agency, the General Services Administration. That agency came under heavy fire and its administrator resigned after published reports surfaced last month that more than 300 GSA employees went on a lavish trip to Las Vegas in 2010. The trip cost taxpayers more than $800,000. Despite the outrage at GSAs recent action, NOAA headquarters staff recently posted a public procurement request on a GSAwebsite to obtain a magician for an upcoming conference, Brown wrote. NOAAlater removed the advertisement from the GSA website when the press started asking questions. NOAAtruly does need to find the Magic of Change. And that changeshould start with the replacement of NOAAs leadership.Brown is among several lawmakers, mostly from New England, who want NOAAs administrator, Jane Lubchenco, to resign for her handling of a scandal involving the agencys former head of law enforcement, Dale Jones.ACommerce Department Inspector Generals 2010 investigation found NOAAs National Marine Fisheries Service agents under Jones supervision repeatedly harassed New England and MidAtlantic fishermen and built a multimillion-dollar asset forfeiture fund. According to the IGs report, Jones and other highranking federal fisheries agents used money in the fund to buy cars, a luxury yacht and foreign travel.

Asher AU4358 Chesterfield Auctions AB3175 Senator: Probe NOAAspendingReason for conference still mysteryBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comNOAA BROWN Air service scout team to visit SanfordMonroe County officials will pay a visit to Orlando Sanford International Airport May 23 to discuss the pros and cons of privately managed airports. Mayor David Rice and County Administrator Roman Gastesi have floated the idea of private management at Florida Keys Marathon Airport once longtime Manager Reggie Paros retires next month. Awhile back we got a letter from [the state Department of Transportation]. They said if youre looking to privatize theyve (Sanford) done it right. We thought it would be a smart idea to go up and see whats working so well, Rice said. Rice was referring to a March 28 e-mail from DOT Programs Administrator Dionne Richardson to county Airports Director Peter Horton. Richardson noted several conditions for private management: No fixed-base operator is allowed to manage the county-owned airfield. The county must maintain full control of the airport. Private management can run day-to-day operations, but oversight lies with Monroe. Adecision to privatize must be coordinated with the Federal Aviation Administration. The state DOTs Aviation Office must be notified of any changes in management at the airport.Rice, Gastesi, county Airports Director Peter Horton and Assistant County Attorney Pedro Mercado are scheduled to make the trip.We just expect that itll be a good opportunity to learn. Then well decide whether were even going to go that route, Rice said.

Dolphin season 2012 is shaping up to be a good one. There are plenty of large, 20to 30-pound fish. And, there have been multiple reports of fish in the 40pound class as well as oodles of schoolies to keep everyone happy. Most of the dolphin are being found on weed lines and floating debris, which have been plentiful these last couple of weeks. There are also good numbers of wahoo and tripletail under the floaters, which can be targeted after youve caught all the dolphin. While youre offshore, hit the humps for blackfin tuna. Most are in the fiveto tenpound range, with the occasional fish approaching 20 pounds. The mutton snapper bite is really heating up on the wrecks, with lots of 10to 15-pound fish and more than a few going every bit of 20 pounds. On the same wrecks, there are amberjack and jack crevalle to pull on and a smattering of kingfish for the smoker. The snapper and grouper bite is excellent on the reef. Lots of flag yellowtail as well as multitudes of 14to 18-inch fish are going into the fish boxes. All depths, from as shallow as 20 feet down to 100 feet, are holding the snapper. The majority of the keeper size grouper are coming off the deeper edge of the reef from 80 to 100 feet, and some are being taken on the artificial reefs and rubble piles in 100 to 150 feet. These same artificial reefs are also home to permit in the 15to 25-pound class. These make for superb catch-andrelease sport fishing while grouper hunting. The tarpon run remains strong at the bridges and in Key West Harbor with fish responding to live mullet, pinfish, crabs or shrimp trash. Around the Bay banks, there are still plenty of mangrove and sea trout to put together a nice dinner catch.Weeks best catchesIn the backcountry channels off Islamorada, Capt. Chuck Brodzki put brothers, Rick and Jeff Greenwald, from Boca Raton and Orlando, on an awesome tarpon bite during the super moon tides. Using pass crabs on 20-lb spin tackle, the duo caught and released five tarpon ranging from 55 to 80 pounds. Capt. Dallas Tisdale guided Fonz, the cook from the Seven Mile Grill in Marathon, to two red grouper in about an hour of fishing. The boats at Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway in Marathon are busy.. Capt. Zach Willis guided John Phillips, Kenny Williams and Robbie Lowery to plenty of yellowtail, a nice AJ and a fat grouper to top it off. During a week of fishing on a Pips rental boat, frequent visitors, Fred and Florence Luginsland, from Glendale NY, landed a trophy sailfish. It was just the two of them onboard, and Florence has permitted us to mention shes 65 years old. Way to go! The SeaSquared fished just about every venue for various species this past week: tarpon at Bahia Honda, mangrove snapper and sea trout in the Bay, snapper and grouper on the reef and dolphin and wahoo offshore. Capt. Kevin Wilson, of Knee Deep Charters in Geiger Key, had multiple successful trips to the reef last week. Limits of yellowtail snapper and lots of good size black grouper were caught by Tom Higgins of Key West, and his brother-in-law, Alex Rende, George and Mike Santana and Franco Gonzales, from Miami, as well as Cathy and Kevin Stahl, from Port Charlotte. Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moes Custom Charters in Key West, spent a lot of time in Key West Harbor where his anglers had a ball catching and releasing tarpon ranging from 35 to 135 pounds. His anglers were also busy with a mix of snapper, grouper, mackerel and sharks in the Northwest Channel as well as Goliath grouper and big mangrove snapper in the Gulf. Casting ContestCapt. Spiders Casting for Charity takes place Thursday at Saltys Waterfront Grill, located at the 7 Mile Marina, mile marker 47.5 bayside in Marathon.

In keeping with the dates established for federal waters (more than 9 miles from shore), the harvest will be open for 40 days, from June 1 through July 10. Commissioners, meeting last week in Crystal River, voted to keep the 40-day season regardless of whether the feds decide to shorten the season in federal waters.Harvest of red snapper remains closed in state and federal Atlantic waters. In other action, commissioners decided to open the harvest of round-scale spearfish a somewhat rare species often mistaken for white marlin. Keeping spearfish caught in state waters has been illegal since 1999, but the commission decided to include it in the one-billfish daily bag limit. Spearfish must measure a minimum of 66 inches from the lower jaw to the fork of the tail. Gov. Rick Scott signed a bill into law last month that clarifies the responsibilities of divers and dive-charter operators to obtain licenses to spear fish or catch lobster. House Bill 7025 allows dive operators to purchase a vessel license that covers customers on board their boats so customers dont have to buy individual saltwater fishing licenses or lobster endorsements. However, if a charter operator does not have a vessel license for taking fish and lobster, then individual scuba divers will have to buy their own licenses.

Call Laura at 743-5551 Living B-52 Strickland riffs on musicThe B-52s have been around for an incredible 35 years, which equates to at least 200 years in terms of band lifetimes. Over the past three and a half decades, theyve weathered the rise and fall of punk, disco, hair-metal, grunge, indie, outie, electronic, wooden and scores of others styles and trends, occupying their own kitschy little corner of the galaxy. The size of their corner has ebbed and flowed over the years. After their late 1970s breakthrough with Rock Lobster and Planet Claire, the B52s hit a fallow stretch in the mid-s that bottomed out with guitarist Ricky Wilsons death from AIDS in 1985. The group disappeared after that. Improbably, however, the surviving quartet of Keith Strickland, Kate Pierson, Cindy Wilson and Fred Schneider regrouped for a triumphant return with 1989s Cosmic Thing, their biggest album ever. Love Shack and Roam topped the charts worldwide, carrying the B-52s into the 1990s and beyond in style. Nowadays, theyre still one of the most endearing, reliably fun live acts on the road. We talked by phone with guitarist Strickland from his home in Key West. Question: After nearly three dozen years at this, do you ever wonder what else you might have done if not for playing in the B-52s? Answer: Its hard to imagine doing anything else. Maybe something in the visual arts painting, photography, film. But music was the medium I felt most comfortable in. Im from Athens, Ga., but I never went to [the University of Georgia], although I did go to the library a lot. I was a townie and playing music before finishing high school.Its all I wanted to do, so thats what set me on this path. Still, the B-52s were not necessarily the band I imagined myself being a part of. It was something that just happened.Q: Are there songs from the old days that you get tired of playing live? A: I only get tired of songs I feel arent working live. Weve written some that worked in the studio but are really hard to pull off live. So well give those a try several tries, in fact before giving up. You know, this one just isnt working, so lets drop it.Now there about six songs we absolutely must put in, because the audience just gets so into them. Those I dont get tired of because theyre good songs, and theyve taken on a life of their own. Playing them live is like getting on a ride. Youre in this moment and the audience is as much a part of it as we are. So its a collective thing that happens.Q: Its kind of surprising the B-52s are still around in 2012, given how close you came to breaking up after Ricky Wilson died.A: We just couldnt imagine continuing without him. Cindy [Wilson] lost her brother and they were very close, so she was just devastated. We all were. Acouple of years went by. Id moved from New York to Woodstock and I was alone in the mountains, so I started writing more music because its what I do.Kate and Cindy heard some of it and really liked it, so the four of us talked about trying to do something, see how it goes. About a year later, we had written Cosmic Thing.Q: Did you have any idea how big that album was going to be? A: It was a big surprise to us. At the time we were writing, we werent thinking about hit records or even records at all, really. It was mostly just for ourselves. We found a lot of comfort in each others company and valued our friendships even more after losing Ricky. That gave us a strong sense of impermanence and how quickly things can change. Those songs came from that place, and all those feelings are in that record.I still enjoy listening to that one because I can hear how heartfelt it was. I would say its our most heartfelt album, in fact. We had grown up a lot, and losing someone can really put a light on whats important in your life.Q: When the group reformed, you switched from drums to guitar and had to learn how to play in Wilsons very unusual style. Was that difficult? A: It wasnt really too hard. Even though I play his parts, I do play a little differently than Ricky. I have a different touch with the way I approach the songs, so I had to make them my own while trying to stay as true to the original parts as possible.Ricky and I wrote music together and sometimes Id play guitar, or hed play bass. So I always felt I understood intuitively what he was doing. Having said that, taking the role of guitarist in the band wasnt easy. It took me quite a while to get comfortable as a live guitarist.Ricky did have an amazing style. When we first met in high school, he had all these songs hed written and recorded on a little tape recorder. They were quite amazing; very folky, almost Donovanesque, very original.Most people think of Ricky as a guitarist, but he was also a great songwriter with quite an interesting approach to phrasing. The melody he wrote for Girlsis a good example. Listen to that and its structured quite unconventionally, but it really works. Thats distinctly Ricky. He was so original in everything he did. Q: Do you ever miss playing drums? A: Not so much. I play guitar so rhythmically, it feels the same. The place I came from as a drummer, I come from the same place as a guitarist. More detail and finesse is involved with guitar. After 25 years, I still feel like Im trying to get there although I do enjoy it a lot more now. Im more fluid, can improvise a bit. I used to have to just stick very rigidly to the parts and not do anything else. But now I can play around with it a bit, dance around and have more fun. Q: Youre pushing 60. How long do you think youll keep doing this? The Rolling Stones are still going at this late date. A: Well, I will say that I wont be doing what the Stones are, still touring into their 70s. Im just not that ambitious, to be honest, and there are other things I enjoy doing. So Im not quite sure how long well continue. But I guess you can never say never.Key Wester talks touring, band mates 1985 deathMcClatchy-TribuneMUSIC B-52s guitarist Keith Strickland (second from right) lives in Key West.The band still tours,always playing its most popular songs.Carpooling isnt for everybodyStretched by soaring gas prices and still feeling the sting of recent toll hikes, many commuters are taking a second look at carpooling, an idea that became popular during the 1970s energy crisis and still can provide perks today chief among them gas and toll savings.But before loading up your minivan with co-workers, you may want to consider the tradeoffs that keep some drivers from making the switch.If youre fanatical about controlling the radio and dialing in the perfect temperature, or cant help back-seat driving, carpooling could offer some challenges. Plus, you lose the luxury of coming and going as you please. Then theres the issue of personal comfort. Can you ride to work, day after day, with people you may not know very well? Devajyoti Deka, a researcher at the Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University, said while rising gas prices often prompt people to take public transportation, few are willing to make the sacrifices necessary to join a carpool. Chief among them, for Deka, is the loss of personal space. If you are carpooling, there has to be a bit of closeness.... Its not easy to find a match that you would enjoy the 30to 45-mile ride with, Deka said.Transportation consultant Ben Barkow, author of the Transportation Research Board report The Psychology of Carpooling, said carpooling is only for the mature people who are willing to negotiate and compromise for the greater good saving money.But he acknowledges there is a cultural fear. The resistance to trying carpooling resides principally in the reserve people feel to encountering and negotiating with strangers, said Barkow. People also resist because theyre afraid of getting stranded at work in an emergency for instance, needing to run home for a sick child, he said.

Doug Dicken, a 2000 graduate of Marathon High School, has been awarded a Bronze Star With Valor for helping rescue fellow service members in Afghanistan. The Air Force says that on June 9, 2010, he was near Sangin when an American helicopter went down. With complete disregard for his safety, Sgt. Dicken immediately requested his pararescue team be inserted near the unsecured crash site to start treating survivors as realtime intelligence indicated insurgents were moving to attack his aircraft, the award citation says. Dicken quickly established security around the burning aircraft and while searching for survivors, he located three, all with lifethreatening injuries and one trapped in his seat. Dicken worked to extract the crash victims as ammunition and flares on board the helicopter ignited. Some aboard the helicopter died but the citation says the quick thinking and courageous leadership of Sgt. Dicken ensured all survivors of the crash were successfully evacuated.U.S. Army Pvt. Nick Bertiaux has graduated from basic training at Fort Benning, Columbus, Ga. Bertiaux is the son of Rose Bertiaux of Marathon. He is a 2009 graduate of Key West High School.

The most obvious of our senses constantly bring to light lifes beauty and depth to its sounds. At their keenest, good sight and sharp hearing are taken for granted. Yet genes, environment, accidents and age can dull our vision, cloud our hearing. But there are ways to help these senses stay as keen and strong as, and for as long as, possible. Theyre nothing magical; much involves the common-sense trio of eating well, exercising, not smoking. Following such tips from experts can help keep hearing and vision as strong as the rest of the body. Anything good for your heart theoretically is good for your eyes, says YuGuang He, associate professor of ophthalmology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Those disease processes are very similar, cardiac disease and ocular disease. Thats why we say your eye is the window of your heart. Says Carol Cokely, clinical associate professor at the University of Texas Dallas Callier Center for Communication Disorders: First and foremost, you need to protect your hearing, because once that goes, its not coming back.Protect hearingSo, in brief, yes, eat salmon and avoid loud noises. Those are merely the first steps. Precaution and simply paying attention go a long way.We cant fight genetics or accidents or viruses, but we can prevent our exposure to noise we choose to do to ourselves, says Cokely, who earned her doctorate in audiology.Adds Kris Chesky, director for the Texas Center for Music & Medicine at the University of North Texas: Sound is energy, and energy damages the ear. Their professions put them at risk for hearing loss, but musicians also have a distinct advantage over nonmusicians. ANorthwestern University study found that musicians were 40 percent better than nonmusicians at making out and repeating various sentences in noisy environments.Think of people playing in a symphony orchestra, says Sam Holland, director of the division of music at Southern Methodist Universitys Meadows School of the Arts. You have 100 other people playing different things. You have something incredibly specific and precise to create and fit into the overall whole. You have to have incredibly selective and precise focus on what it is youre doing. Focusing, often more than volume, is key, Cokely says.Just because you can hear doesnt mean its clear. Clear speech is not loud speech. Therefore, she says, Were not honing our hearing; were honing our listening. Install a sound-level meter phone app. Normal conversation occurs at around 55 to 65 decibels, Cokely says. If youre measuring the sound coming out of your iPod and its over 80, thats loud.Keep earplugs handy. Say you go to a rock concert and your ears are ringing like mad, Cokely says. In a day or two theyre normal. But with repeated insults [to the ear], youre not forgiven. It adds up, and wont return to normal. Rest your ears. Ears need a chance to recoup, Chesky says. There is literally swelling that goes on in the cochlea after exposure to loud noise. Its like running a marathon; you need to rest your muscles afterward.Play musicTake up an instrument. Being a music maker in any way, shape or form, even as a solo pianist, you have to focus aurally on something very complex in your environment, Holland says. That ability extends past music situations, which he says hes found out in his own life. Keep cognitive skills sharp. Communication isnt just hearing; theres a cognitive component, Cokely says. So anything you can work on to sharpen your abilities would certainly circumvent some difficulties. Even doing the crossword puzzle its not auditory, but it couldnt hurt. Check your medications. Some may be damaging to your hearing, Cokely says, including large doses of aspirin and certain intravenous antibiotics.Eat carrotsIf you grew up hearing that carrots were good for your eyes, thats true. But only recently has it been proven scientifically. An ongoing Age-Related Eye Disease (ARED) study has shown that a pill containing antioxidants beta carotene, zinc, vitamin C and vitamin E slows down certain types of macular degeneration.But, says Eileen Birch, senior research scientist at the Retina Foundation of the Southwest, Its not like if you dont have it, the pills will keep you from getting it.He of the University of Texas-Southwestern says the way we use our eyes generates a lot of oxidation, problems that are bad for any tissue. By this theory, antioxidants will be good for the eye.Thus, he eats fish, usually wild salmon, three times a week. His diet also includes nuts and fruit, especially dark-colored varieties such as blueberries and cranberries.Birch also recommends dark leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, broccoli and greens, which have been shown to guard against diabetes. Theres not a whole lot you can do other than a healthy lifestyle to prevent eye disease. Part of that is exercise, which helps keep weight down and thus minimizes the risk of diabetes. Weight is going to put you at high risk for diabetes and that puts you at risk for abnormalities in the blood vessels in the retina, she says. If youre overweight, you want to go in for regular eye exams. Sometimes diabetes is picked up by changes in your eyes.Quit smokingSmoking, too, is related to cataract risk and macular degeneration, she says.Maintain a healthy lifestyle. Focus on dark, colorful fruits and vegetables and fish such as tuna or salmon. Exercise. Dont smoke.Change your focus periodically. Look up from your computer monitor and change the distance of what youre focusing on, Birch says. You dont always want to be focused on one distance with your eyes unblinking. You blink to lubricate your eyes and change focus. Practice eye yoga. Though he may be joking on the name, he says its important to keep your eyes more relaxed and avoid headaches, dizziness and maybe nausea. Afew times a day, Look up as far as you can, then slowly rotate your eyes. Look to your right, as far as possible. Look down as low as possible, slowly circulating. Do it as peripherally as you can see. At the same time, think of a very quiet area. It wont help your vision, but it will help you feel better.

Really? Take a look at this text message you sent them.Cant find a job? Then why do you spend all day noodling websites that have nothing to do with work?In Omaha on business? So how did your iPhone check in on Facebook at this fancy restaurant in Boston? And whos with you in that picture?In a recent survey of more than 800 divorce lawyers by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, 92 percent said theyve seen more cases during the last three years using evidence taken from iPhones, Droids and other smart phones.Earlier surveys showed similar increases in family law cases that included social media and email evidence, said Ken Altshuler, president of the academy.The survey found that text messages are the most common form of evidence taken from the phones, followed by e-mails, phone numbers, call histories and GPS and Internet search results.But ferreting out the details of an illicit relationship isnt really the purpose of collecting electronic evidence, lawyers said. Rather, its all about the custody of two things that often are at the heart of family disputes: children and money.Anita Rodarte, a lawyer with a matrimonial practice in Kansas City, Mo., once represented a man who was fighting a demand from his ex-wife for additional maintenance payments. Her Facebook postings, however, revealed that she had been spending lavishly on a maintenance issue of her own: cosmetic surgery.What about a spouse who is seeking support because they cant find a job, and you look at the cellphone bill and theyre spending all day long chatting on the phone? Rodarte asked.Finding assetsAltshuler, who practices family law in Maine, said electronic evidence is particularly good at giving clues whether one party in a divorce case is selling assets or trying to hide assets. He once found a cryptic text message Im sending you $1,000. You know what to do with it. leading to evidence that his clients former spouse was hiding assets.Lawyers said that on custody issues, judges are particularly sensitive to what parents say about each other to their children. Texts often illuminate that subject. Who is going to foster a good relationship? asked Rodarte. Is that going to be the parent who is making the disparaging remarks? And credibility always is a key for judges. One of Altshulers clients found a photo on her husbands cell phone of him drying a load of marijuana. She forwarded it to her own phone while he was in another room.When the husband denied having issues with drugs, the court was treated to 30 seconds of stunned silence as he looked at the picture, Altshuler said.All you need is for the judge to like your client and dislike the other person, Altshuler said. The rest is easy.But sometimes electronic evidence makes resolving a custody or paternity issue almost too easy. Kansas City lawyer Hugh ODonnell once uncovered a YouTube video that a man, who was claiming paternity of a child, had posted a couple of years before.During an appearance on a television reality show, the man had adamantly claimed the child wasnt his. That video, and not the mans testimony, decided the issue, ODonnell said. Lawyers know that if this [kind of evidence]) gets in front of the judge there will be repercussions for the client, ODonnell said.Parties in a lawsuit generally are entitled to electronic evidence, and laying hands on it has become fairly routine, lawyers said. Estranged spouses generally can count on text messages theyve sent to each other to emerge if theyre material to the case.Other sourcesChildren and spouses friends also are steady sources of electronic communications. And information from shared computers and telephone accounts also are fair game, lawyers said. Lawyers can request that people not destroy electronic evidence before the lawyers look at it. The impulsive nature of electronic communications often visceral and sharp can make it powerful evidence in a divorce case already infused with raw emotions, lawyers said. In the light of calm reflection, even an idle threat looks far worse on a page with an evidence sticker attached. Its there, its in print and its hard to run away from, Rodarte said.Criminal lawyers see the worst people acting their best, Altshuler said. Divorce lawyers see the best people acting their worst. Even the most sane people act crazy under extreme emotional pressure.Messages can often be damningMcClatchy-TribuneTECHNOLOGY Smart phones a treasure trove fordivorce lawyers Sharpen your senses to keep eyesight and hearing strongBest advice: Just maintain healthy waysMcClatchy-TribuneTO YOUR HEALTH MOTHERS DAY Students at Plantation Key School celebrated Mothers Day with,among other things, cakes from Publix and a tea party.
