Thirteen of the states 67 districts posted higher reading scores than Monroe schools. Monroe Countys tenthgraders scored higher than the state average, posting a 59 compared to 50 statewide. On a six-point grading curve, a 3 is equivalent to 50 out of 100 points possible; at a cutoff grade of 4, students would need to score at least 66.6 points out of 100 to make the minimum acceptable grade. Early this week, the state Board of Education lowered the passing grade on the FCATtests from 4 to a 3, saying the move was designed to hold harmless districts and students in the face of tougher tests than administered in the past. John Padget of Key West, who sits on the state Board of Education, said his vote to move the cutoff from 4 to 3 was for this year only.Earlier this year, Keys schools Superintendent Jesus Jara notified parents to expect lower test scores as the standards continued to increase. That was echoed Friday by state Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson, who said we are asking more from our students and teachers than weReading scores indicate Monroe students doing better in classroomMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSKeynoter Staff SPIEGEL GROVE:10 YEARS LATERCorals, sea fans everywhereThe hull of the Spiegel Grove once so white that it seemed incandescent in the depths, now glows with a different bounty of undersea hues. Adecade since May 17, 2002, when the 510-foot retired U.S. Navy ship mostly vanished from the surface, the ocean has claimed the Spiegel Grove as its own. A luxuriant coating of corals, both stony and soft, have fastened to the metal hull and bulkheads. Its best to take a flashlight with you, Key Largo dive videographer Frazier Nivens said after surfacing from a 10-year anniversary dive Wednesday. When you turn on the light, the whole thing just explodes with color, said Nivens, owner of Ocean Imaging. There are corals and sea fans everywhere you look. The gun mounts on the former dock landing ship, a signature location at the Spiegel Grove have nearly disappeared beneath layers of polychromatic growth. Marine denizens range from hulking barracuda and Goliath grouper to the tiny but fearless damselfish that nip at diversfingers to protect their nesting brood. Gray snapper form more than schools; they create living clouds. Volunteers and staff with the Reef Environmental Education Foundation have logged more than 200 species of fish that either live on the shipwreck or visit occasionally. Upper Keys dive shops and the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce, which sponsored the effort to acquire and sink the Spiegel Grove prefer to count dollars.Shipwreck reef is thriving with marine lifeBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgAnnette Robertson (above) on Wednesday uses a dive light to bring out the color of coral now encrusting gun mounts on the Spiegel Grove.Those same gun mounts (left) are easily recognizable in June 2002, a month after the ship was scuttled.Its been 10 years since the retired U.S.Navy ship was intentionally sunk.The 510-foot-long Spiegel Groveis the worlds third-largest vessel intentionally sunk to make an artificial reef behind the USS Oriskanyoff Pensacola and Gen.Hoyt S.Vandenbergoff Key West and is positioned about six miles into the Atlantic.Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOW See Grove,2ASee FCAT,3ADruckemiller might testifyLisa Druckemiller, a former Monroe County administrator accused of stealing county-owned electronics and then selling them, might testify before a grand jury that will soon start investigating the thefts.It is my understanding that they intend to take her before the grand jury, but I dont know when thats going to happen, said Robert Cintron, Druckemillers attorney. If they subpoena her to come before the grand jury, shell have to go. The question is whether shell answer any questions. We havent made a decision.I was going to make the offer. Its always my inclination to ask someone suspected of wrongdoing to give us their side of the story, Assistant State Attorney Mark Wilson said.Druckemiller has implicated several other county employees are involved in the missing electronics at least 36 county iPhones and 12 iPads conservatively valued at $15,000 combined. That includes County Administrator Roman Gastesi, who paid cash for two iPads and two iPhones, and senior systems analyst Hank Kokenzie, who paid cash for three iPads and two iPhones.Wilson has put off presenting evidence to the grand jury because AT&Thas been slow to fulfill a subpoena request for records because of technical problems. He said he heard from the company Wednesday. They told us theyre working on our request right now, he said. We should have the information in a week or 10 days hopefully.Meanwhile, the County Commission decided Wednesday to wait for the grand jury, convened by the StateGrand jury to get evidence in coming weeksBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comIPAD/IPHONE INVESTIGATIONJob applicant files hotline complaintAjob applicant to the Monroe County School District says a top schools administrator intentionally deleted an e-mail and stonewalled her application. The applicant: Donna Gentile, wife of district Chief of Staff Ken Gentile. She says the e-mail was deleted after she complained to the districts waste, fraud and abuse hotline about lack of progress on her application The accused: Human Resources Director Cheryl Allen. If the e-mail was intentionally deleted, it could constitute a third-degree felony charge of tampering with evidence, Monroe County State Attorney Dennis Ward said.Asked in an e-mail about the allegation Thursday, Allen had no comment, copying district attorney Therron Simmons on the exchange.Since Ken Gentile monitors the waste, fraud and abuse hotline, Stuart Kessler, chairman of the districts Audit and Finance Committee, will investigate Donna Gentiles allegation.Donna Gentile applied to be an assistant to Grants Manager Nancy Romain last month. Like all district job applications, it went through an online platform called Personnel Application Tracking System provided to the district by third-party vendor 451 Solutions of Sarasota.Gentile says her application included her employment history and references, but that after Allen received it, certain sections were marked as incomplete. One of the categories [Cheryl] had said was in draftGentile says HR chief Allen deleted e-mailBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSSee Gentile,2ASee iPads,2A

Surveys of boats dropping divers at the Spie g el Grove indicate the wreck lures tens of thousands of people each year.That adds up to about $25 million generated into the local economy in vacationers spending on boat trips, motel rooms and restaurants over the past 10 years, said Russ Yagel, chairman of the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce. Its a big attraction.The Spie g el Grove has paid for itself 20 times over, Spencer Slate of Capt. Slates Atlantis Dive Center said while hosting Wednesdays 10-year commemorative dive. Except for the buoys, weve never put another dollar into it, Slate said. You cant argue with me about the value of sinking ships. We have some groups that come down every few months just to dive this wreck, said Slate, who headed the project through several years of hurdles. We dive the Spie g el Grove three to five days a week, conditions permitting. And its surprising not to see at least one other boat out there.Ashipwreck-reef committee of the Key Largo chamber labored for eight years to raise the money and win government approval needed to move the Spie g el Grove from its mooring in the mothball fleet in Virginias James River to a spot beyond the Key Largo reef line, not far from Dixie Shoals.Debate raged a decade ago over whether the sinking was worth the $1.3 million cost. That number jumped to nearly $2 million when the scheduled May 2002 scuttling went awry in a major way.Water flooded the well deck in the final hours of pre-sinking preparation, forcing a crew of about 40 volunteers to abandon ship. The ship listed to starboard, then rolled over completely. The stern hit the bottom 130 feet down, but a pocket of air trapped in the bow kept the ship from sinking completely. The ship stayed that way for three weeks while a marine-salvage firm mapped out a plan to keep the Spie g el Grove from landing upside down on sea floor which would virtually destroy its value as a dive site. Critics mocked the Spie g el Grove as the ship that would not sink.On June 10, 2002, the effort by Resolve Marine of Fort Lauderdale put the ship on the bottom, starboard side down. Since the complex superstructure remained intact, it was hailed as a huge success.Then in July 2005, Hurricane Dennis tossed waters in the Florida Straits. The storm had little effect on the Keys but powerful currents pushed the Spie g el Grove upright making it a perfect dive. Its so flat, you could play polo on the top deck, Quiescence Dive Shop owner Rob Bleser, who coordinated the final stages of the project, said in 2005. Slate recalled the day when he heard the Spie g el Grove had rolled upright. There were tears in my eyes from the joy, he said. I knew it was going to be a safer dive, and that it wouldnt collapse on itself like ships on their side do, Slate said. The Spie g el Grove is going to be there forever.The remaining amount due on loans taken out to sink the Spie g el Grove has shriveled to about $17,000 due to the successful sale of $10 annual medallions sold at local dive operations offering shipwreck dives. Were still selling medallions, which is a big indicator of the projects success, Yagel said.Grovemakes for great diveFrom Grove,1A status was veterans status. I said I know for certain ... but to tell me that I didnt submit my veterans reference, and Im not even a veteran, that doesnt make any sense.At that point, Gentile, a Web application programmer, said she thought there was a glitch in the Web-based program, so she contacted Patrick Shea, executive vice president of 451 Solutions.If my application is in draft status, then your system is broken and we need to fix it, Gentile says she told Shea. I asked Cheryl to let me talk to the programmers at the Monroe County School District; she came back and said this is not a programming issue.And then, Nobody wanted to talk to me. Gentile said. At first, PATS was talking to me, but once they talked to Cheryl, they wouldnt talk to me anymore. They told me I need to talk to Cheryl.That prompted Gentiles complaint to the hotline; she says she also decided to initiate a formal public-records request for e-mails that might clarify what happened to her application. I went in to do a formal public records request and when I talked to Cheryl face to face, she said, You know Patrick [Shea from 451 Solutions] and I were working on a response to you, then you submitted the complaint. She said, I deleted the email, Gentile said. I think she deleted the e-mail because I had submitted the complaint. I was just shocked. You find out that I submit an investigation and you delete the e-mails? To this day, I have submitted a request for the deleted emails and havent heard back from anything.Donna claims that when she requested e-mails, she was told they were deleted, Kessler said. Thats all based on Donnas representation of the situation. Its not in any way accusing anybody of anything at this point well, Donna is accusing someone of doing something but its very important that the hiring process be fair, open and transparent. The whole situation is critical to the long-term success of the district.From my point of view, Ken Gentile said, I told Donna and Cheryl from the beginning that I cant get involved. If the end result is for her to get hired, I have a pure conflict of interest.Gentile still waits for informationFrom Gentile,1A A AHOUSERMarilynHouser ofKey ColonyBeach,passedawayon A pril9,2012,underthecareof HospiceofNaples,FL.She wasprecededindeathbyher lovinghusband,Jim.

Liveaboa r d s act s r e s ult i n fe n ceMore than 10 years of constantly drinking and defecating on private property, among other complaints, caused the Monroe County Commission on Wednesday to close off a Key Largo street to a nearby liveaboard boating community.The commission agreed to erect a 6-foot-high chainlink fence at the end of Bayview Drive around mile marker 100 bayside, preventing boaters from gaining access to the street. Theyve long docked dinghies there.Resident Brenda Altmeyer told the commission shes lived on the street since 1995 and the boaters have long been a problem.Theyre not the most pleasant people to live around. They are constantly drinking, she said. If they were quiet and kept things tidy, itd be one thing, but this has been a problem for a number of years. Altmeyer said numerous residents have complained about the liveaboards going to the bathroom in public. They were going in buckets and dumping it overboard in view of the neighbors. Theyre still residents of this county, but it makes it difficult. Altmeyer added that the boaters have become passive aggressive toward residents recently. The boaters are now saying things to the residents ... so were concerned and thought [the fence] might help us for a temporary period of time, she said. Sheriffs Office Chief Lou Caputo told the commission Altmeyer only touched the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the problem. He spoke about trash piles, defecating on private property and numerous derelict vessels. What has happened is as different facilities closed down in the Upper Keys, Caputo said, they have congregated in one area. We have done everything we can before coming to you to ask for help. Commissioner George Neugent said he dealt with similar concerns 20 years ago with Marathons Boot Key Harbor. The solution is simple managed mooring fields. We have a responsibility as a County Commission to provide the upland amenities to the boaters, he said.Fellow commissioners agreed and directed staff to look into solutions. The commission also took the following actions Wednesday:Had a discussion about the impact of Citizens Property Insurance Corps rising windstorm premiums and controversial depopulation plan aimed at eliminating 678,000 policies.Commissioner Heather Carruthers is a founding member of Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe, a grassroots Keys nonprofit that fights against higher windstorm rates. She said FIRM continues to make presentations up and down the Keys and will travel to Jacksonville on June 6 to speak before the Citizens board of governors. Citizens is the states insurer of last resort.FIRM and state Rep. Ron Saunders (D-Key West), are exploring the possibility of a Keys-only mutual windstorm insurance company that would be owned by its policyholders. Were not just whining; were providing solutions that would involve the private industry, Carruthers said.Approved a Nov. 6 general election referendum allowing voters to weigh in on whether the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority board of directors should be elected or remain appointed by the governor. Neugent floated the idea for the nonbinding referendum after receiving numerous calls in the wake of the utilitys Nov. 22 meeting. Executive Director Jim Reynolds abruptly resigned and was replaced moments later by the board with utility attorney Kirk Zuelch. Many felt the moves were pre-planned outside the sunshine. Neugent has said the referendum idea was in the works long before that meeting took place. Ultimately, the decision of elected vs. appointed lies with the state Legislature.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comKEY LARGOAttorneys Office, to release its report before taking any action on the government level.Its going to be quite farranging, beyond criminal indictment. It will take a look at Monroe County policies, as well, Mayor David Rice said. The discussions weve had is its not a good idea for us to run a parallel investigation. We will be getting a detailed grand jury report that will give us all the information we need to determine whats appropriate at that date.The commission also deferred implementing a stipend program aimed at doing away with purchasing iPads and iPhones for employees. Gastesi proposed allowing employees to purchase their own cell phones and paying them various levels of stipends each pay period. He said doing so would solve inventory problems and issues with personal use of county phones. The commission agreed to wait on the grand jury before instituting the program because it would be a year or two transition. They may have suggestions or ways for us to tweak this, Commissioner Kim Wigington said. The proposed stipends were:For voice service only, a stipend of $13.85 per pay period and bi-annual equipment stipend of $100.For access to texting and phone services, a stipend of $23.08 per pay period and bi-annual equipment stipend of $100.For employees that must have access to a smart phone, a stipend of $46.15 per pay period and bi-annual equipment stipend of $200.

The day before the Key West City Commission was set to make a politically charged decision on whether to require 30 percent of the units at Peary Court be set aside for affordable housing, state officials reversing themselves said affordability doesnt apply to the gated community. The issue was raised last year when the U.S. Navy, in conjunction with private partner Southeast Housing LLC, said they would sell the 157-unit, 24-acre neighborhood, long the home of military housing, to a private development group, White St Partners LLC.At the time, in a letter to city Planning Director Don Craig dated Nov. 14, Rebecca Jetton, administrator for the Florida Department of Economic Opportunitys Area of Critical State Concern Program, said the rule should apply.She wrote that city policy clearly articulates the intent to set aside 30 percent of new units as affordable housing. Since these units are newto the city and private sector, it is my opinion that the units are subject to the 30 percent affordable set-aside.Then, on the eve of what was poised to be a contentious vote, Jettons boss, J. Thomas Beck, the DEOs director of the Division of Community Development, changed positions, citing information brought to him by a Southeast Housing attorney. Beck wrote to Craig on Tuesday: The department has reconsidered its November 14, 2011, letter to you, and is of the opinion that the existing ... units at Peary Court are not subject to the 30 percent affordability set-aside... The main points of Southeast attorney Nancy Linnans argument, confirmed by Beck, against the 30 percent rule:Peary Court construction began in 1993, three years before city officials added the 30 percent rule to their comprehensive plan.The 30 percent rule requires an enabling land development regulation, which wasnt adopted until 1998.Although the sale price of Peary Court has not been made public, Linnan notes in her letter that application of the 30 percent rule would cost Southeast between $5 million and $8 million. White St Partners, based on representations to the city, plans to build 22 affordable units on the property.Mayor Craig Cates said Wednesday that despite the newest interpretation proffered by the state, he will pursue some sort of affordable housing requirement for Peary Court.Presented with a bevy of new information, commissioners on Tuesday voted to postpone pending items regarding Peary Court to a special meeting planned for May 29 beginning at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall.Monroe County School District Superintendent Jesus Jara is looking for job opportunities outside the Keys even while being in the running to remain superintendent.I am having informal conversations with superintendents about potential jobs, he said Thursday, the same day a board-appointed search committee, meeting at Marathon High School, whittled a list of 56 applicants down to 16. The 22-member search panel meets again at Marathon High at 9 a.m. Monday to further whittle the list to between five and eight semifinalists to recommend to the School Board for interviews.Despite Jara not meeting a minimum qualification of serving three years as a principal he has two years and 10 months experience he received more committee votes than the other candidates on Thursday. Committee member Steve Pribramsky, a former School Board member, said ignoring the qualifications could taint the process.Part of this role is reestablishing public trust in the school system, he said. If this digresses into what appears to be favoritism or this is rigged, it could ... hurt the School District. Other than Jara, the other candidates are:Dennis Albright, superintendent of Braxton County (W. Va.) Schools.Keith Bell Sr., chief academic officer of Columbus (Ohio) City Schools.Joanne Calabro, professor of education at Argosy University, Pittsburgh.Constance Clark-Snead, superintendent of the Westbury (N.Y.) Union Free School District.Thomas Gay, a principal administrator for a Broward County private school.Luis Gonzalez, superintendent of the Central Dauphin School District in Harrisburg, Pa.Shannon Goodsell, superintendent of Tahlequah (Okla.) Public Schools in Tahlequah.Geoffrey Gordon, superintendent of Port Washington (N.Y.) Public Schools.Harry La Cava, an education consultant and former superintendent of the Indian River County School District in Vero Beach.Frank Mellaci, superintendent of the Farmington (N.H.) School District.Mark Porter, superintendent of South Washington County (Minn.) Schools.Paul Sequeira, assistant superintendent of schools for the Waterbury (Conn.) Public Schools District.Edward Shine, superintendent of the Rye (N.Y.) City School District.Art Stellar, most recently the superintendent of Burke County (N.C.) Public Schools.Alexander Wayne, assistant principal of Grasso Technical High School in Groton, Conn.The advertised start date is Aug. 1, with a salary of between $125,000 and $150,000; Jara earns $135,000.This is the first time the Keys superintendent will be hired rather than elected; that model changed with the approval of a countywide referendum in 2010. Randy Acevedo was the last elected superintendent, voted into office for the second time in 2008. The following year, then-Gov. Charlie Crist removed him from office following his indictment on official-misconduct charges. He was convicted of the felonies and has since completed three years of probation. The next two superintendents, Jara and Joe Burke before him, were governor-appointed. Burke left last year to head Lee County schools in Southwest Florida.

The candidates to replace Scholl are:Thaddeus Cohen, assistant city manager and Community Redevelopment Agency director for Pensacola from 2008 to 11 and secretary of the state Department of Community Affairs from 2004 to 07.Ed Green, manager of Garfield County, Colo., since 1998.Gary La Venia, township manager of Maple Shade, N.J., since 2010.Craig Lonon, retired but with more than 30 years experience as a city manager in Harlingen, Cedar Park, Conroe, Corsicana, Levelland and DeSoto, all in Texas.Bob Vitas, former city manager of Lake Zurich, Ill., Lewiston, Maine, and Menasha, Wis. In the run-up to the committees meeting, its members asked the commission to decide whether to include in the process three candidates that at first blush did not meet the minimum qualification of serving for five years at the top level of local or county government. Key Wester Margaret Romero and Ken Davis of Islamorada were in that group and were not considered by the search committee; Cohen, also originally discounted based on the qualification, was added back after committee members deemed his experience heading the Florida Department of Community Affairs as qualifying. Meeting earlier this month, commissioners had a chance to formally decide whether to include those three candidates but Commissioner Mark Rossi, the deciding vote, refused to give his input. That prompted an e-mail from City Attorney Shawn Smith to commissioners and committee members giving his analysis.Unless the commission answers the qualifications question [which never happened], I believe the committee on first review determined that the candidates were not qualified. I do not believe they can be considered.He continued: From a very basic legal perspective, the city opens itself to potential liability for failing to follow its own rules.Overall, 80 people applied to be Key West city manager. The city spent $20,000 to hire mainland search firm Colin Baezinger & Associates to help with background checks and candidate screening.Scholl, who earns $180,000 annually, is leaving after five years; his contract expires July 1.Search panel narrows list to 5 hopefulsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Two charged in Sugarloaf boat theftAnautical lark ended in larceny counts for two visitors charged Wednesday with boat theft in the Lower Keys, according to the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. Perry K. Townsend, 25, of Temple, Texas, and Amanda Habhegger, 21, of St. Johns, Fla., were arrested after being found aboard a 21-foot boat taken from the Sugarloaf Marina. They also are charged with breaking into another boat at the marina. Both confessed, deputies reported. Habhegger told officers they were bored and wanted to do something reckless. Larry White told deputies he awoke aboard his houseboat moored off Sugarloaf Key around 7 a.m. to see his 1988 Pursuit recreational boat anchored about 75 yards away. White docks the Pursuit, valued at $24,000, at the marina, he said. When White approached the Pursuit, he said the two people aboard tried to navigate away but were stopped by shallow waters. They then followed the boat owners instructions to follow him into the marina.Habhegger told Deputy Todd Jones they went to the marina around 4 a.m., and took the boat so they could have a place to sleep, his report says.Townsend and Perry also are charged with breaking a window to enter a 1991 Parker cabin cruiser docked at the marina. Owner Joseph Moore said the boats lines were cast off and the engine was started, but a frozen shift cable apparently kept the boat from being stolen. So they went to another boat and took that one instead, an investigator quoted Habhegger as saying. Townsend and Habhegger are charged with burglary, criminal mischief and grand theft involving more than $20,000 of property. Suspect says they needed place to sleepLOWER KEYSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comAs expected, another lawsuitAdd another lawsuit to the battle over commercial electricity on Lower Keys island No Name Key.The Monroe County Commission, in a rushed vote just before 5 p.m., on Wednesday unanimously agreed to sue Keys Energy Services to get an injunction to stop the utility from installing power lines on the 1,000-acre island.At the commissions meeting in Key Largo, Chief Assistant County Attorney Bob Shillinger interrupted another agenda item at 4:55 p.m. and asked for the vote to ensure the suit could be filed prior to Monroe County Circuit Courts 5 p.m. closing time.Shillinger told the Keynoter the suit had to be approved by the board at a public meeting, and he wanted to schedule a closed session to discuss the lawsuit with the commission prior to its 10 a.m. Tuesday special meeting in Key West. That meeting is for a variety of public hearings not related to No Name Key; the closed session is set for 9:30 a.m.If were going to try and ask the court for an injunction of the power lines, you want to do that before the work starts. [Keys Energy] indicated it would happen before June, he said. I also wanted to be able to talk to the board in a closed session and I have to have a pending action.The Utility Board of Key West on May 9 approved a pair of contracts to construct the power lines to the island. But the county has concerns about running lines over conservation land and issuing permits to connect lines to poles on No Name. Both are prohibited under county code and the county filed a separate lawsuit over those issues in March 2011.Also Wednesday, the commission also approved invoking the Florida Governmental Conflict Resolution Act, essentially a mediation process with Keys Energy. Shillinger said its a separate process from the lawsuit.Homeowners on the 43home island off Big Pine Key have battled for years over commercial electricity. Homeowners now use solar panels and diesel generators to power their houses. Thirty-two of the 43 homes belong to No Name Key Property Owners Association members and have already paid $650,000 to Keys Energy to install the lines.County sues to halt pending line constructionBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comNO NAME KEY

We wanted to g ive that a little more oomph to g ive them a private ri g ht of action under the ordinance that allows for dama g es and an attorneys fees provision, Chief Assistant County Attorney Bob Shillin g er said.The commission approved the provision as part of a certificate of compliance prog ram law that takes the place of an onerous provision in the Federal Emer g ency Mana g ement A g encys controversial downstairs-enclosure inspection pro g ram.The other options were for property owners to g o throu g h a normal code process or to make avoidin g inspections a misdemeanor. Growth Mana g ement Director said the code provision was taken out because once a home is sold, theres nothin g to lien, and the commission was uncomfortable criminalizin g the offense.At least this is way the g overnment is reco g nizin g [the problem] and it g ives a little more evidence to g ive to the jud g e, Hurley said, referrin g to the dama g es and attorney fees provision of the law.Enclosure inspections are a local requirement of FEMAs pro g ram to find and remove enclosures below the floodplain or built ille g ally. Theyre key to the county remainin g in FEMAs National Flood Insurance Pro g ram, which insures almost all Keys properties.FEMAapproved the compliance pro g ram in November after a requirement that subjected property owners to enclosure inspections when applyin g for a buildin g permit in a separate area of their home was repealed in June in state House Bill 407. Former Lower Keys resident John November drafted the bill.All Keys homes insured by FEMAare subject to inspection.

But any property owner that seeks an increase in density or intensity could not be approved without military comment and proof via a noise study that they are not an incompatible use, Hurley said. The meetin g is scheduled for 10 a.m. Tuesday at the Harvey Government Center in Key West.

Moir said local contractor Geor g e Steinmetz is fillin g that role after Henderson left the Marathon nonprofit on April 27. He moved his family to Portland, Ore. Hes doin g it pro bono for us. Obviously, hes a well-known contractor in town and hes doin g it to help us out. Hes been involved with all of our meetin g s since the g etg o, so hes pretty familiar, Moir said. Steinmetz owns Coral Marine Construction. However, Moir said 3,000-plus miles wouldnt keep Henderson from remainin g involved with seein g the zip-line course throu g h. Hes still g oin g to be involved because he believes in it and hell do whatever he can. If we need to call on him, he said hed be willin g to stay involved, she said. Several residents and local environmental g roup Last Stand oppose the project, claimin g a zip-line would interfere with wildlife habitat. They also raise doubts about Crane Points projections that the attraction would create 21 jobs. Marathon resident Beverly Welber spoke at the May 8 City Council meetin g and voiced concern about the $735,000 Community Development Block Grant the city applied for on behalf of Crane Point. She said doin g so is now an even g reater risk with Henderson g one. Earlier, the council backed the project and a g reed to apply for the fundin g throu g h the state Department of Economic Opportunity to help build the $1.1 million course. Accordin g to the g rant requirements, the 21 jobs must be around for at least one year; the city would have to pay back $35,000 to the state for each one not created. Crane Point has said it would cover the cost of up to four jobs if necessary. The county Tourist Development Council and its Middle Keys district advisory committee unanimously approved an $85,000 TDC g rant supportin g the project.This,despite departure of operations chiefMARATHONBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com

Photo courtesy FLORIDA STATE ARCHIVESToday is Armed Forces Day.This is Key Wests U.S.Army baseball team on Feb.28,1918.The team,stationed at the Coast Defense Station,won the citys YMCA championship that year.Defense Secretary Louis Johnson announced the creation of Armed Forces Day in 1949 to replace separate Army,Navy and Air Force days that honored the military.The first one was May 20,1950.CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALFCAT needs big overhaulLETTERS TO THE EDITORNo Peary Court bailoutIn 2007 Balfour Beatty (then GMH Housing) promised the U.S. Navy it would take on a project that, in the end, would provide military families with several thousand units of new or upgraded housing to be financed for the most part by the private sector for 11 Navy installations in Florida, Georgia and Mississippi, including Naval Air Station Key West. The Navy gave Balfour Beatty title to the existing units and leased them the land for 50 years. Balfour Beatty put a mortgage on the housing stock, indebted itself to the tune of well over $500 million to finance the project and went about the business of spending that money by contracting with its own subsidiaries for construction and management services required for the project. The debt was to be paid back from the rental income. Well, a few years into the deal, Balfour Beatty/GMH decided it couldnt really provide all of the upgraded housing it said it could during the bidding process and the Navy agreed to renegotiate the deal. What happened was the project was downsized. The Navy would get fewer of those upgraded military housing units. Some of the debt the company had taken on was paid back early and it was decided that some of the financing, rather than coming from bond issuances in the private sector, would instead come from the sale of the public land and buildings at Peary Court in Key West. So the sale of Peary Court could be categorized as a bailout of Balfour Beatty. Now we have the city of Key West being asked to zone the property as it is being sold to the private sector. The zoning will have a direct impact on the amount of profit to be garnered from the sale. Lets call that the bailout funds. The more restrictions in zoning, the lower the sale price, the less bailout funds. I believe Balfour Beatty should be expected to lower its sale price so White St. Partners (or any other buyer) may continue to provide a minimum of 30 percent affordable housing to benefit this community rather than negatively impacting this community (and our local military families) by diminishing the number of affordable units available. This community is under no obligation to help bailout Balfour Beatty, which has been unable to fulfill its commitment to build military housing elsewhere in the Southeast. Naja Girard Key WestTougher standards are fine, but implementation of them is flawedWe warned back in February that Florida was pushing through FCATreforms at warp speed without time to train educators on the new requirements, and ignoring each students year-to-year improvement. The so-called proficiency F trigger the state will use to grade schools based on studentsscores on reading, math and other subjects will soon deliver the expected bad news. But on Tuesday, Florida got a preview of the crisis to come when the state Board of Education held an emergency meeting by phone to lower the bar on the writing portion of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test after plunging results essentially flunked 73 percent of fourth-graders on the exam. There were similar dismal results for high school students. This grading on a curve plays right into FCATcriticsnarrative that the tests arent worth the trouble and do nothing to improve learning. Truth is, the tests have been showing results as thousands more Florida students, including minorities, score ever higher on prestigious exams like the National Assessment of Educational Progress, and more black and Hispanic students head to college. No one can deny thats progress.The test isnt so much the problem. The problem is in its implementation and a push to move the bar ever higher without sufficient concern for, say, students learning English for the first time or those with learning disabilities.Florida will soon have end-of-course exams, which should be a better fit for accurately grading work in the classroom based on state standards. But in the meantime, the state needs to clean up the mess it has created. This latest FCATfiasco falls squarely on Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson. Superintendents warned him there should be more time to take in the new measurements, as Florida moves to the next level. At least he acted quickly to inject some sanity into the process on the writing exam, but why cause such a predictable panic in the first place? The writing test this year puts more focus on spelling, grammar and punctuation as it should. But students werent given more time to clean up their essays and the method of grading changed, from having one test grader to now having two graders weighing in on the same test. If these tests didnt carry such dire consequences for students third-graders must pass FCATreading to move to the next grade and high school students cant get a diploma without a passing FCATgrade there wouldnt have been such an outcry from parents and educators. Public schools, meanwhile, are graded by the state with money tied to their success or failure based on FCATscores. And now teacherssalaries also are being linked to their studentsscores. So the stakes keep getting higher. The FCATdemands accountability, and this time Floridians demanded accountability from the states flawed process. The Miami HeraldSomethings fishyCongratulations to attorneys Richard Warner and Frank Greenman on getting the denial of the reopening of the Overseas Liquor and Lounge overturned in Monroe County Circuit Court. I am not an attorney but I find Marathon City Attorney Joe Jimenezs remarks overly dramatic and misleading. Maybe the real problem is that Marathon has been getting poor legal advice all these years from Mr. Jimenezs law firm. If that turns out to be the case, then he may have reason for his drama. I will be very interested in following this matter through the legal system and back through the City Council. If it is determined the city is wrong in this matter, then the very first thing we must do is fire our current attorneys and find a new city attorney. Then maybe we should look into the relationship between Mayor Pete Worthington and Marathon Liquor and Deli owner and Planning Commissioner Ralph Lucignano so we can all understand why Marathon has only two liquor stores and one package store. In 2006, Publixs application for a new liquor store was disapproved and now the city is trying to stop the Overseas. The citys actions directly benefit Ralph Lucignano to the detriment of all the residents of and visitors to Marathon. Is this what we really want? Bruce Schmitt MarathonEMS on front linesWhen asked to describe a hero, many words come to mind: Adventurer, daredevil, conqueror, even an idol. However, when asked to describe an everyday hero, different words come to mind: Brave, selfless, caring, knowledgeable. Anyone who has ever had to dial 911 or be rushed to the emergency room with a life-threatening problem has firsthand knowledge of the skill and expertise our emergency medical services team provides. In honor of the selfless work our EMS professionals give to all of us in Monroe County, on behalf of Lower Keys Medical Center, we want to thank them for their service and dedication. There couldnt be a better time to celebrate these everyday heroes. I am in awe of these unique individuals who thrive in stressful situations, all while staying calm and performing life-saving procedures in the process. EMS professionals are used to being on call and working holidays all in the name of serving our community. They are true public servants, which is why they deserve special recognition. May 20 to 26 has been designated National EMS Week. The annual event is focused on bringing together local communities and medical personnel to publicize safety and honor the dedication of those who are truly on medicines front line. We cant thank our partners in EMS enough for their commitment and ask that you join Lower Keys Medical Center in celebrating and thanking our EMS team during this time. Nicki Will, CEO Lower Keys Medical CenterAnchoring law OKdWith no boaters on hand Wednesday to kick up a squall, Monroe County commissioners signed off on an ordinance to enact several new managed anchoring zones in Florida Keys waters. Crafting the law as part of a state pilot program has not been easy, said Mayor David Rice, but the proposed law has steadily improved as we all worked on it. Weve moved tortoisely slow, noted Commissioner George Neugent, who said the ordinance is critical to protecting seagrass beds and other marine habitats from anchor damage.Although the ordinance was significantly strengthened from a prior version, no liveaboard residents objected during the Key Largo meeting.Marine Resources Administrator Rich Jones said the county will add nearshore areas close to Naval Air Station Key West as no-anchoring zones, at the Navys request. Those areas include potential crash zones off the Navy bases runway, areas in a danger zone near explosives-storage areas, and Navy-owned bay bottom.The Monroe County ordinance which still must be approved by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission as part of a state pilot program on anchoring also lists several conditions known to precede a derelict vessel that could ban some boats deemed unseaworthy from the managed anchorages. One of the potential troubles is a boat listing.I havent seen a boat not listing one way or the other, Commissioner Kim Wigington said. Can we at least say listing to the point of endangerment? This is not about ticketing a boat listing 1 to 5 degrees, Jones said. Its about a boat that is listing way over and probably about to sink. Its about being reasonable and rational. The ordinance also requires mandatory septic pumpouts in the areas.Intended to expand local governments jurisdiction over nearshore anchoring outside existing mooring fields, the ordinance designates managed anchoring zones at Sunset Cove off Key Largo, in the Lower Keys at Boca Chica Basin, Cow Key Channel and Key West Harbor; and in Marathons Boot Key Harbor and Sisters Creek.Astate pilot program enacted by the 2009 Florida Legislature to reduce the number of derelict or neglected boats includes Monroe County as one of five Florida coastal areas allowed to draft new anchoring rules on a test basis. The program expires in 2014 unless extended by the Legislature.ON THE WATERKessler: District amateurishFrustrated with the state of affairs at the Monroe County School District, Stuart Kessler, chairman of the advisory Audit and Finance Committee, this week called the school systems management amateurish and dysfunctional. When the committee met Monday at Marathon High School, district Chief Financial Officer Michael Kinneer was not on hand as is customary, and committee secretary Sally Smith couldnt make it.Donna Gentile, who volunteers in the districts Finance Department, took the meeting minutes. Shes the wife of Ken Gentile, the districts newly named chief of staff after being internal auditor.We basically have no administrative support now, Kessler said. Were dealing with a dysfunctional organization, therefore the role of the Audit and Finance Committee is not what its going to be in a functional organization.To that point on Monday, committee member Roger McVeigh floated the idea of doing away with the watchdog panel, citing lack of support from district officials.It makes it even more imperative we do the job than not be here, Kessler countered. We have no financial information provided but theres still an important role in pressing for the information and letting the [School] Board know what is not being done.The district is in the process of cutting more than $6 million from the 2012-13 budget, which kicks in at the beginning of the fiscal year on July 1. With such pressing financial difficulties, Kessler said it would stand to reason the district would produce financial documents and allow committee members to offer their input. I hope some day well be able to do the normal job of an audit and finance committee to analyze financial information and make recommendations, Kessler said, adding, But of course the prerequisite of that is to receive the financial information and the prerequisite of that is to create the financial information.Were in the middle of this whole budget crisis and we havent received any kind of comprehensive budget document or any budget documents. All we have is a series of bullet points of projected cuts. Its certainly not reflective of a professionallevel organization. Its totally unacceptable.All we can continue to do is press for the administration and the board to do the right thing. We dont have any power other than to suggest.... The organization is not functioning. The School Board has the power to make something happen.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org

But love and a reluctance to take a hard look at our own financial habits, often keep us from seeing, much less confronting, potential financial troubles in a relationship. Failing to do so, however, can lead to serious post-wedding day troubles. Mature, responsible conversations about money are a sign of a marriage thats going to be healthy and wonderful and enduring, says Brooke Salvini, a certified financial planner based in San Louis Obispo, Calif. If you cant talk about money when you are dating, that is a red flag right there. To get the conversation rolling, here are seven steps experts recommend to steer clear of potential marital money troubles:Disclose finance records.Before corporations merge, they go through a period when both sides get a close look at each others financial records. Take the same approach before you get hitched.Swap statements for your bank accounts, credit cards, student loans, retirement accounts and so on. Also share credit reports and FICO scores.Not only can you start to put together a balance sheet of what the two of you own and what your debts are, you can start to discuss do we want to combine our checking account? says Salvini.Discuss financial goals Ahuge part of getting in sync with your spouse begins with discussing major life goals and the necessary financial commitments. Discuss short-term goals, such as paying off credit card debt, and then craft a budget that sets you clearly on a path toward your goals.Budget your spending.Failing to create and stick to a mutually agreed upon budget can lead to marital strife.It doesnt have to be complicated, though. Start off by listing monthly income. Be sure to add in interest earned on money-market accounts and dividends from any investments. Then add up expenses, everything from car payments, rent, to groceries, gym membership and utilities.If youre making more than you spend each month, you can begin planning how to set aside money for long-term financial goals. If not, time to consider ways to cut spending.Treat your money as our money. Many newlyweds continue to see the money they earn individually as their own, much like if they might merely be roommates. They keep separate bank accounts and pitch in, perhaps equally, or not, to paying bills.But that can lead to problems, especially if one spouse earns a lot more than the other, says Anthony Chambers, a clinical psychologist at the Family Institute at Northwestern University. If both spouses work, he suggests they arrange for their paychecks to be deposited directly into a joint account thats used to pay all shared expenses. If they feel they need to have some of their own play money in a separate account, thats fine. But Chambers says the funds should come from the joint account so both spouses know where the money is going.Keep credit cards separate. Its not necessary to make your spouse a joint accountholder on your credit cards, especially if he or she has a poor credit history, which can drag down your own credit rating. Instead, make your spouse an authorized user of your credit cards. This will avoid any potential impact to your credit rating. As a safeguard, authorized users are also able to check account balances and track spending on the card.Dont split costs 50-50. In marriage as in most other scenarios, money is power. Although splitting household costs down the middle may work early on in a relationship, it can breed resentment in a marriage when one spouse makes a lot more money than the other. It also can foster a sense that the person who pays more should have more say in financial matters.Very few things in marriage are exactly 50-50, says Chambers. And that can really start to bring up all of these other issues of fairness.Still, even if costs arent split down the middle, its important that each spouse hold equal say in making money decisions.Talk about spending.Even after youve reviewed all the financial paperwork, sometimes its even more important to find out how your spending habits match up.Often those habits are developed early and are entrenched. One person might have grown up in a family that counted every penny. Another might part far more easily with money because shopping became a hobby.Beyond how much someone likes to spend there are potential conflicts over what we see as a must-have.Even small differences can become wedge issues later on.The central task of marriage is the management of differences, says Chambers. So you want to be able to know early on what those differences are.Discuss it before you get marriedAssociated PressPERSONAL FINANCE Subscriptions 743-5551 Island Vision Careis now accepting NEW patients.We are a full service optometry practice that services all ages, from kids to seniors.Monday Friday 9AM to 5PM Saturday by appointment6400 Overseas Hwy.

KEY WEST SPORTS Nelson off to PrincetonThe high-school days are rapidly running out and so Morgan Nelson, bound in the fall for Princeton University, runs. You may have glimpsed this Key West High senior running in the late afternoon with her cross-country coach and training partner, Terence White, perhaps along Flagler Avenue or near the Southernmost Point, or at the Key West Bight, where they pound the harbor walk in view of early-dinner patrons.Nelson, who runs up to 35 miles a week, is the fastest girl cross-country runner in school history she ran the 3.1 miles (5K) in 20 minutes, 17 seconds as a sophomore. Also a track team mainstay, shes the second-fastest Conch in the two-mile run (12:39) and third-fastest in the mile (5:45).At the top of her class with a 4.7 weighted grade-point average, shes headed to the New Jersey Ivy League school (she was also accepted at Duke) with academic scholarships worth $40,000 a year.She visited the campus last month and fell in love with it. Its perfect, she said with a smile before a running session Thursday. Its the Disney World of academia.With an eye toward a future in marine biology, Nelson, 18, will focus at Princeton on the environmental sciences, but also hopes to make the cross-country team, donning an orange-and-black Tigers uniform and running the scenic campus course that includes a stretch through soybean fields.I talked to their coach and he told me the times [in the mile run] that are needed to make the team as a walkon, Nelson said, adding that she probably will have to lower her 5:45 to 5:20. That seems to be a big jump, but Im not that far off.Noting that Princeton women runners have 5K times ranging from 17 to 20 minutes, she is optimistic about her chances, which she believes will be helped because shes been a top runner on a team.Ayear ago in March, Nelsons running career appeared to be in jeopardy.She injured her knee in track she had been running too much. That held her back from all-out summer workouts. The knee still hurt last fall, but she still contributed as senior cross-country captain, though her times were in the 23or 24-minute range.Then in December, Key West orthopedic surgeon Robert Loeffler determined the injury was more serious than first thought. She had a torn meniscus. He operated. Arecovery plan was laid out rest at first, then strength exercises and riding a stationary bike, then quarter-mile runs, then half-mile runs.Morgan is very methodical, White said. Her rehabilitation was very impressive. She was extremely dedicated to it, and now shes running faster than shes ever had.It doesnt feel like I injured the knee at all, she said. Dr. Loeffler is amazing.Nelson, who has a distance runners lean frame, has a compassion that extends beyond races.Shes a special individual, said White, alluding to her volunteer work for Habitat for Humanity and Womankind. She also founded a Microfinance Matters club at Key West High that helps raise money so impoverished women can get loans. But it is running that sustains her.It makes me sane, and I have fun doing it, she said. When I run, I know that Ive done something worthwhile every day. It gives me a sense of accomplishment I really need in life.Conch runner hopes to make Ivys squadBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKey West Highs Morgan Nelson runs Thursday along Flagler Avenue.Photo by BERT BUDDE
KeysNet.com Keynoter 2B Saturday,May 19,2012 Living July 4 parade looks to pastAmerica: Yesterday, Today & Forever is the theme of this years Reporter Fourth of July Parade, which is also sponsored by the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce. This is the 37th year of the parade, and this summer organizers are renewing a tradition that fell by the wayside about five or six years ago. The past few years, after the floats finished their route from Anthonys Womens Apparel at mile marker 98 to the Waldorf Plaza at mile marker 100, the event ended with an awards ceremony. In years past, there would be a post-parade picnic at the Key Largo Community Park. While that tradition will not be exactly renewed, the chamber announced last week that an old-fashioned community picnic will happen from 5 to 8 p.m. on the grounds of the Murray E. Nelson Government & Cultural Center at mile marker 102, bayside. The Key Largo Chamber parade committee wanted to revive the oldfashioned picnic idea, which many of us remember from the good old days, said Dawn DeBrule, the chambers July 4 event coordinator. Were talking sack races, watermelon seed spitting contests, picnic fare and activities for the kids. We think the beach and park area at [the government center] is the perfect place to celebrate this red, white and blue holiday Keys style. The parade still starts at 10 a.m. like every other year. Registered floats gather starting at 9 at Anthonys parking lot. To register a float, call The Reporter at 852-3216 and ask for Craig, or log onto www.KeysNet.com and click on the 4th of July Parade link. Complete the entry form and then fax it to 852-0199 by June 15. Plaques will be awarded to winning floats in several categories, including separate categories for businesses and nonprofit groups. Picnic sponsorships are available. Call Gina Boilini at 587-1085 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. To see a complete list of sponsors or learn more about the event, go to the Key Largos Family 4th Parade & Picnic Facebook page, or call DeBrule at 394-7530.Old fashioned picnic set for Nelson CenterUPPER KEYS 43 percent of Americans obese by 2030?By 2030, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention predicted last week, 43 percent of Americans will be obese. More than one-tenth will be at least 100 pounds overweight. So are we going to order the cheese supreme and take this sitting down? Not if Armando Chavez has anything to say about it. Hes fitness director for Larry North Fitness in Dallass Preston Royal Village. Im passionate about this, Chavez says of his determination to get people fit. He sends health and fitness tips to thousands via his Twitter and Facebook accounts, plus offers some ideas to help America defy the CDC prediction: Lead by example. Todays kids will be the adults of 2030, so their moms and dads need to be eating healthily now. If you try to feed your kid healthy food and youre eating fast food, then you just set the worst example possible, Chavez says. If you set the correct example, your child wont crave such food. Think of healthy food as the norm. Avoid calling it bad food or good food. Its food, its fresh, its delicious, and its what will make you healthy. As a parent, dont tell your kids, This is bad,because theyll want to try it, he says. Skip diets that cut out categories of food. All those crazy Slim-Fast, Atkins, South Beach diets dont work, Chavez says. They dont work because they take out something your body needs. Low carb. High protein. No fat. Theyre good for the short-term but not the long-term. Remember that working out neednt take hours. Most people think you have to exercise for hours and hours to get fit, he says. You can work out 30 minutes, and that would be sufficient, depending on your goal. Be efficient in your routine. Instead of doing calf raises, which work only your calf muscles, or curls, which work only your biceps, aim for compound movements like a seated row, squats or lunges. Using more muscles requires more energy, and with that, you lose body fat faster, he says. Get the community involved. Fitness festivals are fine, but Chavez recommends more ongoing efforts. We have to find ways to develop retention on a more massive scale, he says. Start small; meet a friend regularly for a walk or workout. Emphasize the good taste of nutritious food more than that of processed food. Show Americans healthy food choices and how to prepare them, he writes. Show the benefits of how it will affect their own personal well-being. Get athletes behind a healthy-eating campaign. Let kids know that fresh and nutritious food is part of being a good athlete, he says. Kids will think its cool to eat certain healthy foods, Chavez says. That has never been done.Feds predict that statistic for populousMcClatchy-Tribune TO YOUR HEALTH LIVING BRIEFSAutocross planned for this SundayThe Ecurie Vitesse Sports Car Club of Key West holds an autocross Sunday at Florida Keys Community College on Stock Island, with registration starting at 9:45 a.m. An autocross is a onecar-at-a-time event in which drivers compete in various skills against the clock.

For those too young to have been behind the wheel of a cherry red Merc, well, then you have to experience the times they had back then. This 1950s musical review celebrates the close harmony guy groups that played to packed houses and forever dreamed of cutting a hit album. Some of the greatest hits of that period are reprised for this fun, upbeat show, including Three Coins in the Fountain, Catch a Falling Star, Heart and Soul and Rags to Riches. Marathon Community Theatre veteran Fred Hundhammer says hes wanted to bring the show to Marathon for years. Forever Plaidhas won acclaim from audiences of every kind of demographic. Kids, teens, young adults and their parents, grandparents and great-grandparents all come out smiling at this quirky, off-beat tribute to the love of music, entertainment and the power of following your dream, he said. The Plaids are played by MCTs own John Hunt, as Francis the tenor and asthmatic group leader; Jerry Nussenblatt as Sparky, the baritone and cut-up; Bryan Foster as Jinx, first tenor and the real nose-bleeder of the four. Rounding out the harmony is Paul Carmichael playing Smudge, the worrisome bass. The guys sing with harmony and choreography. Its a must see, adds Kathryn Rummery, musical director. The story, for those who havent heard it before, centers on a quartet of highschool chums who dream of recording their first album while driving to a big concert gig. Their cherry red Merc collides with a bus carrying Catholic school girls, who are traveling to see the Beatles American debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. The girls survive the crash just fine; not so the boys. The play begins with the wondrous and wondering Plaids returning fromRemember the s?

On top of break-the-rules theater conventions, Pierson and his troupe of performance artists, actors, dancers, musicians, mimes even stilt walkers -promise to add video projection, filmed interactive sequences, original music videos and a retrospective at the past 50 years of television. Could a Rod Serling moment and another dimension be far behind? Pierson, who operates an art gallery along with other endeavors, is the match maker responsible for melding burlesque with other artistic traditions. He and his crew have produced Backdoor Burlesque, The Red Rooster Revue, Cabaret Dujour, Holiday Ho Down, and others over the past five years. He says Finito presents the close out to a five-year run of original spoofs and rocking good entertainments at the Red Barn Theater. The diverse music ranges from Blondie to Bowie, INXS to Madonna, and The Talking Heads to Dub Step. All are represented in the show one patron dubbed, GLEE with strippers, Pierson said. Avirtual Frankie portrays the infamous Max Headroom, with nods to the unforgettable films Flashdance, Mission Impossible and Space Oddesy 2001. Flashbacks to TVof yesteryear get their due as well, including riffs on The Honeymooners, The 6 Million Dollar Man and Alice in Wonderland. Japanese Amime, tele novellas, and even Jerry Fallwell get their moment in the spotlight. What, about Rod Serling?
