City,district narrow choicesTHE SEARCH FOR LEADERSHIPAnother finalist to be Key Wests next city manager has dropped out of the running, further winnowing options the City Commission has when it chooses a manager June 4.Ed Green, formerly manager of Garfield County, Colo., on Thursday withdrew from the Key West process after landing a job as village manager in North Palm Beach. That leaves four finalists.Green was among four out of an initial pool of eight finalists to withdraw. Two of them cited concerns about city commissioners lobbying for applicants who do not meet the minimum qualifications the commission previously adopted. Another one said he was merely testing his value at his current job.Commissioner Jimmy Weekley, who has served on the City Commission for more than two decades, is satisfied with the quality of the remaining candidates but says he is embarrassed for us. In all the years Ive been in city government ... I have never seen the commission interfere with a process like that.He criticized some of his4th Key West finalist takes another jobBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comThe search for the next Monroe County School District superintendent continued this week as an advisory committee to the School Board narrowed down the list of candidates to nine from an initial pool of 56.The next step is to settle on five semifinalists for recommendation to the School Board; that will happen when the superintendent search committee meets Wednesday beginning at 9 a.m. at Marathon Middle/ High School. Jesus Jara, the current superintendent appointed by Gov. Rick Scott, is in the group that will move on. Still, he is exploring other job opportunities including with his former employer, the Springfield (Mass.) Public Schools system. Based on evaluations and background checks conducted by the 22-person search panel, the other eight agreed-upon applicants are:Keith Bell Sr., chief academic officer of Columbus (Ohio) City Schools.Thomas Gay, a principal administrator for a BrowardAnd then there were nine for superintendentBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com PLAYER RESCUEKeynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWMarathon High School football player Noel Natta,a sophomore,is rushed to the TraumaStar rescue helicopter after it landed at the Coral Shores High School field Thursday night.Natta collided helmet to helmet with a teammate and was knocked out,and was flown to Ryder Trauma Center.He was released Friday morning suffering a concussion.

The others are Be The Change at $25,000 and the Domestic Abuse Shelter at $30,000.The Bahama Village Music Program and the Anchors Aweigh Club, a Key West 12step recovery program, are theBut nonprofits seeking a total of $2.12 millionBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comSOCIAL SERVICES U.S.Navy photo by BRANDON NORMANU.S.Navy Chief Petty Officer Nathan Kisamore replaces flags at the graves of veterans in the Key West Cemetery Friday in honor of Memorial Day.Its an effort of the Key West Chief Petty Officers Association.Memorial Day events, 2BHONORING THEIR SERVICE Boating safety in the spotlightWith light winds and partly sunny skies in the Memorial Day weekend forecast, Florida Keys marine law-enforcement officers have geared up for one of the years most hectic boating holidays. Gas prices are down so if the weather holds out, we expect a very busy time, said Officer Bobby Dube, spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission in Monroe County.Memorial Day, marking the start of the summer season, typically sees more boats on the water countywide than any other time, Dube said.Memorial Day weekend in the Keys a year ago, state officers issued 62 boating violations and 174 written warnings while checking 1,028 boats.Since there were only two boating accidents (neither with injuries) and five boating-under-the-influence arrests, it was considered relatively quiet. Our No. 1 priority will be watching for BUI operators, with zero tolerance, Dube said.Speeding through go-slow areas, careless operation and reckless acts also will be a focus. Aslow-speed area at the Jewfish Creek Bridge channel, new since last Memorial Day, now is in effect.Other congested areasThis weekend, be especially aware on waterMEMORIAL DAYConvicted dog beater sentenced WednesdayAKey Largo man convicted Wednesday of animal cruelty for an incident almost two years ago that left an 8-month-old dog severely injured and fighting for its life finds out his fate this coming Wednesday. Thats when Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia will sentence Noah Mitchell, 35. Mitchell faces up to a year in jail and four years of probation. Asix-person jury convicted Mitchell of savagely beating his Labrador retriever, Bubba, during a barbecue on Oct. 3, 2010, because the animal took a steak from the kitchen counter. At trial, prosecutor Terri Hunnewell said Mitchell dropped, kicked, punched and strangled the dog around 9:30 p.m. that night. Mitchell had just moved into his house on Pimlico Lane.Gary Pitterman, one of two men in the house with Mitchell, was the prosecutions only eyewitness. Mitchells defense attorney, Donald Barrett, said Pittermans testimony was unreliable because he admitted drinking heavily that night.But Hunnewell said the deputy who first interviewed Pitterman said the witness did not appear intoxicated. She told jurors that based on Bubbas injuries, there was no reason they should doubtMitchell faces year in jailBy DAVE GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comUPPER KEYSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgSee Mitchell,3ASee Boating,3ASee Nonprofits,3ASee Schools,2ASee Manager,2A MITCHELL
Vincent Weiner, who agreed to resign from his job as the top Keys agent with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement following a nocontest plea related to homestead-exemption fraud, is now a deputy with the Monroe County Sheriffs Office.Col. Rick Ramsay says Weiner approached Sheriff Bob Peryam about employment opportunities. He said Weiner, with more than 25 years of law enforcement experience, was a good choice. Hes been hired as a Lower Keys road patrol deputy based at the Cudjoe Key substation.Based on a resignation and settlement agreement, Weiner resigned from the FDLE on May 1 and agreed not to appeal. Friday, Ramsay and FDLE spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger were not sure if Weiner would stand before the FDLEs Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission, which could revoke his police certification, making him ineligible to serve in law enforcement. If hes called before the board and he did lose he certification, Ramsay says, he will not have a job with us. If they do call him, I dont think he would be decertified. He made a poor decision but he has done a lot of good things in this community. He took responsibility for his actions. Everyone deserves a second chance. Ramsay said a starting deputys salary is $40,660 per year.Weiner, 47, was charged last Aug. 17 with misdemeanor homestead-exemption fraud. Prosecutors say he bought a Big Pine Key house in 2005, then got assigned to Fort Myers in 2006. While living in Southwest Florida, he rented the Keys house while still claiming the exemption from 2007 to 2010. Homestead exemptions, which allow for a property-tax break, can be claimed only on your primary residence.In April, Weiner pleaded no contest to petty theft and paid a little more than $300 in court and prosecutorial fees; he had already paid $5,918 in back taxes, plus a 50 percent civil penalty and 15 percent in interest. Weiner served with the FDLE beginning in 1993; before that he was a Florida Highway Patrol trooper.

Commissioner Clayton Lopez has pushed to have her considered, and she even presented the City Clerks Office with a list of 169 resident signatures, apparently representing people requesting that I be granted an interview, according to her resume file.I think its very unprofessional, Weekley said. Lopez could not be reached by press time for comment.In a memo to the commission, Baezinger wrote: In my opinion, she does not meet the required minimum qualifications as defined in the job description that the commission approved. Even if she did, I felt at least 24 candidates (prior to some withdrawing) ranked higher.The remaining finalists:Thaddeus Cohen, assistant city manager and Community Redevelopment Agency director for Pensacola from 2008 to 2011 and secretary of the state Department of Community Affairs from 2004 to 2007.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. Shirley Freeman, chairwoman of the seven-member screening panel, said any of the finalists could be a good city manager. Now its up to the commission to pick the best one that best fits the city of Key West. On multiple occasions, City Attorney Shawn Smith urged commissioners to stick to the qualifications they set and, in a meeting of another committee on which he serves, said, Ive watched this process with the city and I think theyve made an absolute mess of it.Mayor Craig Cates, asked if he considered moving to scratch the process and start over, said that would enable a majority of commissioners to change potentially loosen the minimum qualifications.Hopeful submits petitionFrom Manager,1AFormerFDLE agent now a deputyWeiner resigned after no-contest petty-theft pleaBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comLAW ENFORCEMENTThe chairman of a Monroe County School District watchdog panel accused school system officials Tuesday of ignoring his committees recommendations to the detriment of the district. During Tuesdays School Board meeting in Marathon, Stuart Kessler delivered a scathing critique of district administration. He said if it heeded the Audit and Finance Committees previous advice, problems now coming to the forefront of board discussion could have been avoided. He gave several examples of what he feels is a pattern of the School District dismissing valuable committee advice.One is that in November 2010, the committee expressed serious concerns with a contractual arrangement between the district and ZumBrunnen Consulting for project management of the reconstruction of Horace OBryant Middle School in Key West.Tuesday, the board voted to cancel the contract with ZumBrunnen based on unsatisfactory performance but Kessler was critical the decision came almost two years after his committee voiced its original concerns.The only reason I mention it today, Kessler said, is its very important we continue to move toward a collaborative type of decision making.Also Tuesday, the board approved spending an additional $1 million on the somewhat mired HOB project, tacking that onto the original cost of $38.6 million.In another example of criticism from the committee making its way to the School Board table, this week saw official approval of a new job description for Ken Gentile, the districts former internal auditor. He is now the first-ever chief of staff, charged with overseeing the Finance Department and budget preparations. That role belonged to Chief Financial Officer Michael Kinneer, who, with the boards approval, is now chief operations officer. He is in charge of functions like human resources and transportation.Kessler, prior to the change in job titles, reiterated concerns articulated last week by the audit committee about the organizational risk created by a disjointed accountability system.At this point, youve got a contract with a chief financial officer thats actually acting as a chief operating officer. You have an internal auditor contracted thats operating now as a chief financial officer, Kessler said. All these things create organizational risk. Were supposed to report risk to [the board]. When you dont have clear lines of authority, its hard to hold people accountable.Friday, Mathewson appointed Dan Dombroski of Big Pine Key to the audit panel to replace Larry Murray, a former panel member. Dombroski is executive director of the Boys and Girls Club of the Lower Keys and Key West.

only two of the 29 nonprofits not to request funding in the current fiscal year.County Grants Administrator Lisa Tennyson said $140,000 received last fiscal year by the Guidance Care Center was returned to the grants pool now that the County Commission has made organizations funding a line item in the county budget. According to the county website, the board prioritizes funding for nonprofits that:Use grants to leverage outside funding.Do not duplicate existing services.Demonstrate need for services.Demonstrate sound financial management. Nonprofits are placed into one of three categories and weighted percentages are assigned as a guideline to funding. Medical services receive roughly 65 percent of funding, while core social services receive 30 percent and quality-of-life improvement 5 percent.The board is made up of Alexsandra Leto (District 1), David Paul Horan (District 2), Steven Torrence (District 3), RaiEtte Avael (District 4) and Bob Johnson (District 5).The Human Services Advisory Board meeting is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. Tuesday at the Marathon Government Center. Saturday,May 26,2012 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com Pittermans version of the incident. One veterinarian who observed Bubba at a MiamiDade County animal clinic testified on Tuesday that the dogs injuries were consistent with those that an animal that size would sustain after falling from a twoto threestory building, or after being hit by a car. Bubba had collapsed lungs, a damaged larynx and six fractured ribs. The injuries are consistent with what Gary Pitterman said he saw Noah Mitchell do to Bubba, Hunnewell told jurors during closing arguments. Mitchell insisted he hurt Bubba by accident.He testified that when he went into the kitchen, Bubba ran outside and to the back of the house because he knew he wasnt allowed to have the steak. The dog tried to hide in between a water heater and the washing machine.When Bubba would not come out, Mitchell said he reached behind the water heater and grabbed the dog by the collar. Bubba gave out a loud yelp, and Mitchell said he did not want to bother his neighbors on a Sunday night with a barking dog. Mitchell said he scooped the dog up with his right arm, cupped his left hand over Bubbas mouth and began to walk back into the house. Thats when Bubba wiggled his head from Mitchells hand and bit his owner on the index finger, leaving about a half-inch wound.At that point, Mitchell said, he accidentally dropped Bubba and fell himself, hitting his knee against the concrete patio. Mitchell said both he and Bubba were in a freefall. He told Hunnewell hes not sure if his knee ever hit Bubba.Mitchell maintained that he was never angry with Bubba for taking the steak off the counter and was just trying to get control of the young dog. I was ambiguous about the steak. It was my fault. I left it where he was able to get it, Mitchell said. After falling, Mitchell said he guided Bubba back into the house by the collar. He said Bubba was able to walk. Once inside, the dog briefly laid down by a coffee table, then went inside his kennel, Mitchell said.Mitchell said it wasnt until a little later that he realized Bubba was seriously injured. He gave Pitterman and Murphy a ride back to the main access road at mile marker 100 that Pitterman uses to go to his liveaboard boat.Pitterman called his friend, Karin Kass, and told her how badly injured Bubba was. Kass called the police. Adeputy took the dog to Dr. George Bailey of the Key Largo Animal Care Clinic. Bailey inflated Bubbas collapsed lungs but determined the animal needed more care than he could provide.Sheriffs Office Sgt. Thomas Kiffney took Bubba to a clinic in Miami-Dade, where the dog was put on a ventilator and oxygen for two days. Bubba is reportedly healthy and doing fine. It is not clear where he now lives.Year in jail possibleFrom Mitchell,1A 29 compete for fundsFrom Nonprofit,1A likely to see patrols include Whale Harbor, Tavernier Creek and the Adams Waterway Cut in the Upper Keys; Vaca Cut and Boot Key Harbor in Marathon; and Cow Key Channel and Key West Harbor in the Lower Keys.If youve got a personal watercraft, dont try to spray other PWCs, swimmers or boats, Dube cautioned. If you have a boat, dont let anybody ride on the bow.Inattentiveness of the operator often contributes to boating accidents, the agency cautions. Statistics show that more than 64 percent of the 66 boating-related deaths [statewide] confirmed last year were attributed to drowning.So far in 2012, Florida has seen 10 boating-related deaths, with the peak season just now arriving.The primary rules for safe boating in Florida waters, as listed by the FWC, are remaining alert at the helm, having everyone aboard wear a life jacket at all times, and designating a sober boat operator.Accidents can leave even a strong swimmer injured, unconscious and exhausted in the water, the U.S. Coast Guard advises. The U.S. Coast Guard urges all boaters to leave a float plan with a friend, family or marina staff. Thats a plan indicating where the boaters plan to head, how many are aboard and when they plan to return to the dock. It can significantly speed a rescue or search if needed.And dont forget a floatation device for aqua dogs, says the BoatUS Foundation. With the dog in the life jacket, first ensure that straps and buckles dont rub sensitive parts, the organization says. This is especially important when the life jacket will be worn dry, on deck. Acanine life jacket should fit properly and have foam flotation centered on the dogs body to make swimming easy.... Alifting strap or handle is a must. Particularly in a divefriendly area like the Keys, all boaters should know the regulations when it comes to divers, the FWC says.Diver-down flags displayed on vessels must be at least 20 by 24 inches. Astiffener is required, and the flag must be displayed above the vessels highest point so that the flags visibility is not obstructed in any direction. Flags on floats must be at least 12 by 12 inches.Divers must make reasonable efforts to stay within 300 feet of a diver-down flag on open waters, and within 100 feet of a flag within navigation channels.Boat operators must make a reasonable effort to maintain a distance of at least 300 feet from diver-down flags on open water and 100 feet from flags in channels. Boats closer than those distances must operate at idle speed.Heading out? Be safeFrom Boating,1A

Guerra hid in the fathers car so he could respond to anythin g that mi g ht take place. Fricke went to Publix to watch from a distance. The father, still on the phone with the caller, was told to wire money to a woman in Puerto Rico. Just before he conducted the transaction, however, the children were found safe. At that point, police told the father not to wire the money.The FBI has been notified.Anyone who receives a similar phone call should notify law enforcement immediately and not try to deal with it alone.Caller sought $1,500 in return for childrenMIDDLE KEYSKeynoter StaffNo bond for Rocklands BlancosAfather and son remain in the Monroe County Detention Center with no bond allowed followin g their arrests early Thursday after the discovery of more than 250 fi g htin g chickens on Rockland Key.

Fla. like whack-a-moleWifredo Ferrer, the U.S. attorney for the South Florida, on Wednesday told a gathering of Keys law enforcement officials that his office is committed to vigorously prosecuting environmental crimes.Ferrer, in Key West at the invitation of Monroe County State Attorney Dennis Ward, was speaking at a luncheon at Trumbo Point. He said the South Florida U.S. Attorneys Office, which takes in Monroe and eight other counties, has one of only two dedicated economic and environmental crime units among all U.S. attorney offices.Helmed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas WattsFitzgerald, that office has earned a fierce reputation among would-be violators in the Keys thanks to numerous stiff penalties handed down against convicted lobster-trap robbers and others violating federal fishery laws.Were blessed with our natural environment, Ferrer told the Keynoter. If its not a priority, criminals will destroy our environment out of greed.In April 2011, Rusty Anchor Seafood Inc., a Stock Island fish house represented by Ramon Rodriguez, was fined $500,000 after pleading guilty to illegally receiving, purchasing and transporting lobster, as well as finfish, for resale and distribution. The Rusty Anchor bought lobster and grouper from David Paul Horan Jr., who pleaded guilty to selling more than $30,000 in illegally harvested seafood; he was sentenced to two years of probation and 200 hours of community service. Back in 2009, in an investigation called Operation Freezer Burn, the feds took down David and Denise Dreifort of Cudjoe Key on lobster-poaching charges. He was sentenced to two and half years in prison and she to seven months. The couple also forfeited three vehicles and three boats.Also arrested in that operation were Lower Keys residents Robert Hammer, Sean Reyngoudt, Michael Delph and John Niles. Hammer got two months followed by home confinement, Reyngoudt got home confinement and Delph got 10 months in jail. Niles got probation for testifying against Delph.Ferrer is no stranger to the Keys; he recounted traveling to the Southernmost City with his grandparents, who came to South Florida from their native Cuba.This is one of the last places I was able to travel with my grandparents before they died. Its really a privilege and an honor ... because this community gave so much to me.Ferrer said the Southern District, some 250 prosecutors strong, is the third largest in the country and handles more trials than any other U.S. attorneys office. He called South Florida ground zero for Medicaid and mortgage fraud, identity theft and prescription drug abuse.In response, Ferrer said his office has had great success in prosecution by forming multiagency task forces, drawing from federal, state and local ranks, to target crime.Were at the forefront of the nation here, he said, likening the challenge to a game of whack-a-mole. Ferrer was nominated to his post by President Obama and confirmed by the Senate on April 22, 2010. Before that, he headed the Federal Litigation Section at the Miami-Dade County Attorneys Office.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comLAW ENFORCEMENT Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYWilfredo Ferro,U.S.attorney for the Southern District of Florida,speaks to Keys law enforcement Wednesday in Key West.

Orlando Sanford International has been under private management with TBI Airport Management Inc., an international company, since 1999. It handled 767,000 domestic passengers and 398,000 international passengers in 2010. Thats down from a peak of 1.8 million passengers in 2008.Rice said TBI has invested more than $70 million in Orlando Sanford International and holds a 30-year lease to manage it.Theyre just about to the point where theyll see it coming back in, he said.The fiscal year 2011-12 budget for the Marathon airport is $1.49 million. Revenue comes from contracts with fixed-base operators and carrental companies, and leases for airplane hangars, among other sources.Rice and Ramsay said while they learned a great deal in Sanford, neither expects TBI to respond to an upcoming county request for proposals to manage the Marathon airport.Theyre certainly interested in looking at the RFP. I didnt leave there with the impression theyre definitely going to respond to it, Rice said.Ramsay said he feels the Marathon airport is too small in comparison to Orlando Sanford International to attract reputable private management companies. Marathon has no commercial air service.Ill bet you if you get any respondents based on what we have in Marathon, itll only be one or two and they wont be real solid people. The airport is too small to interest anyone to get involved, he said.Ramsay said that regardless of whether a private firm or a Monroe employee manages the airport, the county must be willing to use airport funds which are separate from taxpayer dollars to make it viable. The thinking regarding the Marathon airport has to be outside the box from what weve done in the past. The county has to be willing to transfer funds back and forth to support things up here such as air shows, trying to get control of our fuel prices and on and on, he said.State Department of Transportation Programs Administrator Dionne Richardson recommended Orlando Sanford International as a model for private management in a March 28 e-mail to Horton. Richardson also 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 airport management.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON

EDITORIALAs always, be preparedSix-month hurricane season starts June 1, so now is time to ensure you have a planForecasts for this years hurricane season call for a moderate run of named storms in the Atlantic Basin. But few count on those long-range predictions except for actuarial numbers crunchers who work for property and casualty companies. For the rest of us, the old Boy Scout motto about being prepared is the better course to follow for the six-month hurricane season, which officially kicks off June 1. Inside todays Keynoter youll find a comprehensive guide with all the information youll need to prepare your home and property, and develop a family evacuation plan. There are even timely reminders about replacing batteries in portable radios and flashlights. Assume no power and maybe no water for days in the event of a bad one what would you do? In todays guide, youll find helpful advice on what to stock foodwise and what to avoid; how to stay plugged in at work and at home; and the latest in weather forecasting technology. If you want to learn more, you can attend a hurricane preparedness workshop Tuesday at the DoubleTree Grand Key Resort on South Roosevelt Boulevard in Key West. Bill Read, retiring as National Hurricane Center Director June 1, will be the featured speaker. Other speakers include Rebecca Jetton, with the Department of Economic Opportunity, who will address hurricane evacuation times. Arepresentative from Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe will discuss insurance ratings for the Keys. The workshop is presented by the Lodging Association of the Florida Keys and Key West in conjunction with the Tourist Development Council and Monroe County Emergency Management. It costs $10 to attend. This will be a critical year for hurricane preparedness work in the Keys, as the county, city officials and state agencies finalize a new hurricane evacuation model, which assumes an earlier start to evacuation and wrestles with how phased evacuations play out in the real world as opposed to tabletop exercises. If were lucky this year, the hard work of finalizing the new hurricane evacuation model can be completed as a tabletop exercise instead of a mad scramble should a Category 3 or higher storm threaten to come ashore.

Hats off and kudos to this years voluntary advisory board: Rick Roth, Nick Mulick, Peter Rosasco, David Paul Horan, Elmira Leto, Lynn Mapes and Bill Loewy for taking the time and effort to review all the applications and making the final allocation recommendations to the county commissioners. During the course of the past five years, the Forfeiture Fund has given $2,630,471 back to the community. The Good Health Clinic deeply appreciates receiving the $6,300 grant this year to help us in our mission and quest of providing free health care to homeless and low-income residents residing in the Upper Keys. On behalf of all the recipients, we would like to thank all of the men and women who put their lives on the line daily in order to serve and protect Monroe County residents and visitors alike. Without their dedication and commitment, the Shared Asset Forfeiture Fund would not exist. Thank you for helping us to save lives. The Good Health Clinic, a not-forprofit organization, is the only healthcare facility in Monroe County that provides free medical services to qualified uninsured low-income families residing in the Upper Keys.

Viral hepatitis is the leading cause of liver cancer and the most common reason for liver transplants. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, most of the estimated 4.4 million Americans living with chronic hepatitis dont even know they have it. On May 18, the CDC issued a statement recommending that baby boomers born between 1945 and 1965 get tested in light of the rise in the number of cases reported in that particular population group.

Shouldnt it be removed and returned to the Everglades, or do we have to wait until we see a scene from Jaws? Chomp, chomp, chomp! The state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission knows about it but will do nothing. We wouldnt want someones pet or small child to become a meal for this animal.

June November 2012This was the Keys just days after Hurricane Wilma in 2005.A slow 2012 season is forecast,but all it takes is one to cause devastation.Inside,youll find all you need to know to prepare. City switches law firmsThe Marathon City Council agreed on Tuesday to stick with City Attorney John Herin as he makes the jump to his new firm of GrayRobinson.Herin told the City Council his last day with Stearns, Weaver, Miller, Weissler, Alhadeff and Sitterson was Friday and that hed joined GrayRobinson on Monday.Herin then requested the council appoint he and GrayRobinson as its new city attorneys. GrayRobinson served as outside council in the land-takings lawsuit filed by Boot Key property owner Joe Nascone. I believe this is a good move for myself and the city. They have a statewide practice that practices in the area I specialize in, as opposed to a small group I was a head of at Stearns Weaver, Herin said of his governmental law background. GrayRobinson has more than 250 attorneys and 10 offices throughout Florida, including one in Key West. Attorney Ed Scales mans that office. The council approved Herins request with little conversation.City Manager Roger Hernstadt told the Keynoter its not atypical for smaller cities to make the jump to a new firm with their current attorney.For continuity and knowledge purposes, the council wants to continue with John Herin and theyre willing to transfer firms to keep him as city attorney, he said.The council approved a similar move in June 2004, when it followed Herin from the firm of Weiss, Serota, Helfman, Pastoriza and Guedes. Weiss Serota was originally hired in March 2000.In other business Tuesday:The council agreed to sell a police car back to the Monroe County Sheriffs Office for $1,200. The city contracts with the Sheriffs Office for police services and therefore vehicles become its property after theyre cycled out of use. Theyre maximizing the life of these vehicles, but by the time they come out of service, theyre pretty shot out, Hernstadt said.The council renewed a permit for the Incredible Fruit Stand benefiting the Educational Coalition of Monroe County for two years. The stand is set up on Saturdays in front of Crane Point Hammock.The city has twice issued six-month temporary permits after the popular weekend fruit stand operating on state Department of Transportation right of way was targeted for closure. Mainland residents Peter and Marie Pittman run it.But it keeps its attorneyBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON City sets $7.5 million priceThe Key West City Commission has decided that if its going to sell cityowned property to the Pier House resort, the price will be $7.5 million. That decree, issued earlier this month, serves as direction to staff to work on the deal. The hefty price tag buys the Front Street property occupied by the Pier Houses Caribbean spa, 22 hotel rooms, conference space and a rooftop deck. The Pier House has a longterm lease with the city for those spaces, initiated in 1965 and good until 2020. The resort pays just $3,600 a year for the prime downtown real estate. Assistant City Manager Mark Finigan framed the issue as whether the city could use the money now for infrastructure purposes, or wait until the lease expires and renegotiate a potentially more lucrative fee structure. Two appraisal firms contracted by the city measured the price if the land and property were to be sold unencumbered by a lease; the value if it went to the Pier House, allowing uninterrupted hotel operations; and the value as a startup, standalone hotel.The Appraisal Company of Key West says those figures are $6.3 million, $3.6 million and $3.2 million. Lighthouse Realty Services came back with $7 million, $4.7 million and $3.55 million.Based on figures maintained by the Monroe County Property Appraisers Office, the land is valued at $2.88 million and the building is worth $3.17 million, totaling $6.05 million. In 2010, voters approved a referendum allowing the city to explore the sale; that process resulted in 2011 with two interests returning bids on the property. They are the Key West Police and Firefighters Pension Board, at $2.1 million, and the Pier House Joint Venture, the hotels parent, at $6.3 million.Thats what it would take for Pier House siteBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST The hefty price tag buys the Front Street property occupied by the Pier Houses Caribbean spa, 22 hotel rooms, conference space and a rooftop deck.
Saturday,May 26,2012 7A Keynoter KeysNet.comStarting over can be difficult but can be necessaryQuestion: Several years back, I bought a business that looked too good to be true. Turns out, it was. Due to a lot of issues, I lost the business and am out a bundle of money. If that werent bad enough, now I cant find a job. Lots of times I never hear from the company, but when I do go on interviews and see the HR director is 30 years younger than me, I can just tell Im not going to get hired. They never come out and say, Youre too old, but thats what they mean. Im only 55 and I know some other women who are younger than I am (one is 45) who are in the same boat. Now what? Answer: Ironically, news reports are saying that many younger people cannot break into the job market these days because so many Baby Boomers are clinging to their positions. Every age has its challenges. The key is to make those challenges work in your favor. How do you do that? Start your own business based on your dream job. As terrifying as that may sound, could your situation get much worse? Looking at the dream job you didnt get, figure out what exactly made it perfect for you. If your top reason was that it made the best use of your experience, expertise and passion, youre on the right track. Be sure to list the qualitative aspects, too: It was in the right geographic area, it had the hours you wanted to work, the benefits were the best and so on. Put them in two columns, want and need, and rank the need items. Having a dream is just the beginning. The key is to go into a new business with as many facts as you can get. Is there a market for your business? (The fact that you applied for this specific job at another company tells you something.) How are other companies doing in this field? Are they growing or stagnating? Do you have local competitors? What are they offering? How could you improve on what theyre doing? Who are your potential customers? Where do they live (physically or in cyberspace)? Do they have the money to afford your product/service? These and the answers to other questions should form the basis of your business plan. Your business plan is what you take to banks or other lenders to get the money together to start your dream business. Go for it. What have you got to lose? If thats beyond your capabilities at the moment, consider some other alternatives: Depending on how desperate you are, take whatever job you can get. You may think thats going backward, especially at age 55, but you gotta do what you gotta do in order to keep body and soul together. Continue to narrow your focus in that particular field youve already identified, satisfying as many of your other requirements as you can. Apply only for those jobs. Give yourself a younger image. This can include everything from how you dress, speak and act to whats on your resume. Dont try to be something youre not, but theres nothing wrong with accentuating your best points.

Santaguida has worked at the Tavernier medical center for 10 years and heads the Oncology Services nursing team. Mariners officials say it was largely her commitment to opening the Oncology Services Department that led to her selection as nurse of the year. In addition to taking an intensive national oncology chemotherapy and biotherapy course, Santaguida was instrumental in designing the private treatment rooms in the Oncology Services suite. Prior to leading the Oncology Services nursing team, Santaguida was a house supervisor and worked in the Intensive Care Unit at Mariners.Official travel season underwayTravelers this Memorial Day and summer season are determined to take their trips but resolved to stick to a budget. Surveys show more people plan to travel this summer than last, despite higher average airfare prices and the threat earlier in the year of skyrocketing gas prices. Destinations and hotels are doing their part to sweeten the deal for out-of-towners and staycationers alike. In Fort Lauderdale, the Riverside Hotel on Las Olas is running a promotion that takes 10 percent off a one-night stay, 20 percent off two nights and 30 percent off three nights. The deal includes discounts at the salon, restaurant, pub and a local ice cream shop. Still, for many travelers like Erica Villanueva, frugal is the word. For her 30th birthday bash, which falls just after Memorial Day this year, Villanueva bypassed the pricy girls getaway to Vegas and New York City jaunt, and chose instead to drive from her home in Tallahassee to stay with family in Delray Beach. By saving hotel costs, she can indulge in spa treatments, shows and day trips around South Florida. She wont be alone. Throughout Florida, more than 1.8 million people are expected to travel 50 miles or more from home between Thursday and Monday, according to AAA. Nationwide, that number is 34.8 million, a slight increase over last year. Areport co-authored by MMGYGlobal and the U.S. Travel Association shows that 64 percent of U.S. adults or about 154 million people plan to take at least one leisure trip between now and October, an increase from 61 percent last year. Theres a very strong interest in travel, said David Huether, senior vice president of research at the U.S. Travel Association. There continue to be concerns with respect to affordability. However, concerns about affordability arent as paramount as they were a year ago. Airfare is up an average of 8 percent over last year, according to the travel planning site FareCompare.com. CEO Rick Seaney said lower fuel prices at the pump havent led and likely wont lead to lower airfare costs. Theres no doubt youre going to pay more, he said. While airfare is taking a bigger chunk of budgets, consumers are looking to cut elsewhere, said Anne Banas, executive editor of SmarterTravel.com. What you are seeing is people looking to save on other big-ticket portions of the trip, she said, like seeking out private sales for hotels or opting for vacation rentals.Destinations are within drive distanceBy HANNAH SIMPSONhsampson@MiamiHerald.com TOURISM SANTAGUIDA Business

The head injury to sophomore Noel Natta and the helicopter landing on the field caused an early end to the match-up between Marathons Dolphins and Coral Shores Hurricanes. Natta was held at the Ryder Trauma Center in Miami overnight, then released Friday morning. All tests came back negative, besides a concussion, Dolphin coach Lance Martin said. After an offensive fumble by the Dolphins, Natta and Joe Lamberson both 6-foot linemen weighing more than 200 pounds dived to recover the loose ball near midfield. They struck each other in a loud helmet-to-helmet collision. Lamberson, also dazed, lay on the ground for several minutes but was able to walk off the field. Natta was conscious and sat up, but trainers had him lie back down when he exhibited signs of a concussion. Marathon and Coral Shores were in a scoreless tie with 1:42 remaining in the first of two scheduled quarters when the jamboree was halted. The Dolphins ran seven offensive plays against the local rival Canes, hitting two long pass plays. Marathon junior quarterback Roberto Perez and wideout Carlos OFarrill connected on a completion of 32 yards. Earlier in the same drive, tight end Patrick Ryan snagged a tipped pass for a 12-yard gain on third-and-10. Marathon also fumbled three times, losing one recovered by Hurricane defensive end Terrill Taylor that ended the Dolphinslone sustained drive against Coral Shores. Coral Shores kept the ball on the ground against Marathon, opening with a 45-yard run by junior halfback Jimmy Rhyne. Eddie Dunn ran for gains of six and five yards, down to the Dolphin 10-yard line. Afive-yard sack by Dolphin defensive end Ian Nuzzo and a big fourth-down stop by tackle Raymond Crespo halted the Canes. Marathon linebacker John Keller and Natta combined to stop Cane power fullback Kodi Roberts on a fourth-and-1 on Coral Shoressecond drive. Marathon and Coral Shores both defeated Keys Gate Charter in a pair of two-quarter games to open the Jamboree.Fins 30,Keys Gate 0The Dolphins dominated Keys Gates Knights, scoring four touchdowns and a safety in 24 minutes of game time. Junior halfback Ian Almadovar gained 145 yards on seven carries, including a 67-yard run that set up a 1-yard score by Ciro Cammaratra. Almadovar also scored from 19 yards, and Cammaratra chased the Keys Gate quarterback out of the end zone for the safety. Dominic Cavett scored from 18 yards and closed with 45 yards on four tries. Ryan turned a pass from Perez into a 43-yard touchdown just before the end of the second quarter. We showed something that we havent been able to do the past couple seasons, that was to produce the long play, Martin said. We have a lot more speed, and a lot of different options of skill players. Our offensive line did an excellent job blocking for our skill kids to be able to generate those kind of plays, the coach said. Keys Gate had trouble with long snaps, which combined with a stout Marathon defense to keep the Knights off the board. Marathon kicker Riley Durkin hit all four extra points and banged several long kickoffs.Canes 13,Keys Gate 0Coral Shores drove the ball consistently in two quarters against Keys Gate but had to overcome three fumbles (two lost). We havent had trouble fumbling all spring, Cane coach Ed Holly said. Well fix it. Kodi Roberts barged for 79 yards on eight carries, including a tackle-breaking charge of 25 yards that set up a sevenyard touchdown run by Juan Casanova. Eddie Dunn ran for 30 yards on six carries against the Knights. Returning quarterback Addison Duma Kenny lofted a perfect pass to wideout Alberto Anderson to finish a 31-yard touchdown. The Cane defense posted the shutout with efforts by veterans including Will Ismer, Tom Johnson, George Jacobsen, Taylor and Dunn. Paul Pauchey broke up a fourth-down Keys Gate pass. We did some good things and made some mistakes, Holly said. But were where we want to be. The jamboree ends spring practice.

The Key West Navy League hosts a public ceremony from 9 to 10 a.m. Sunday at the USS Maine Memorial at the Key West Cemetery, 701 Passover Lane. Capt. Pat Lefere, commander of Naval Air Station Key West, will lead the proceedings. The Maine Memorial was dedicated on March 15, 1900. It commemorates the victims of the 1898 sinking of the battleship U.S.S. Maine in Havana Harbor. The sinking started the Spanish-American War. Also Sunday, the southernmost chapter of ABATE (American Bikers Aimed Toward Education) has a memorial ride starting at 9 a.m. at the Key West IHOP, 3416 N. Roosevelt Blvd. Riders travel to Southern Keys Cemetery on Big Coppitt Key. After a ceremony there, they head to Coconuts on Big Pine Key, then to Saltys and the 7 Mile Marina, mile marker 47 bayside, for an a.m. to noon ceremony. In Islamorada starting at 9 a.m. Monday at the Hurricane Monument, the Matecumbe Historical Trust will hold its annual Memorial Day service. The monument is at mile marker 81.5 and was dedicated in 1937 to honor the veterans and civilians killed in the Labor Day Hurricane of 1935. Irving Eyster, president of the Matecumbe Historical Trust, will give the introductory welcome. The ceremony will include an invocation by Pastor Tony Hammond of Island Community Church, presentation of colors by Boy Scout Troop 914, the national anthem, the laying of a memorial wreath and a benediction. Memorial Day, created in 1868, was originally called Decoration Day. Its designed to honor our military veterans.Memorial ride, ceremonies honor militaryKeynoter StaffMEMORIAL DAY Call goes out forCall to MenSince 1981, the Monroe County Domestic Abuse Shelter has provided comprehensive services for individuals and families experiencing domestic and sexual abuse. Now its reaching out to men to get involved in the mission. The mission is to reduce the incidence and minimize the impact of domestic and sexual abuse in Monroe County by directing victims to appropriate, effective programs and services and to stop such abuse before it happens. With facilities in Key Largo, Marathon and Key West, DAS is the only agency in the Keys to provide shelter, counseling, advocacy, case management, information and referral, professional training, community education and related services victims of domestic and sexual abuse. In the coming year it expects to provide: Service to at least 500 unduplicated victims of domestic and/or sexual violence. Emergency shelter for at least 200 women and children fleeing violence. Crisis counseling via its 24-hour hotline at least 1,000 times. While continuing to provide its core services, DAS is expanding its efforts to address the external factors that lead to domestic violence through prevention and education. AKey part of that is a 2.5-day training institute with the national organization ACall to Men. Its set for Sept. 30 through Oct. 2 at the DoubleTree Grand Key Resort in Key West. Its designed to enhance community engagement and leadership in preventing domestic violence and sexual assault. After going through the institute, participants share their new tools and resources with their families, places of employment, schools and faith communities. The goal is implementing a no-tolerance policy toward domestic violence and sexual assault. Part and parcel to ACall to Men is DAS Gentlemens Circle, launched last month with about a dozen men committed to the ACall to Men philosophy. The shelter hopes to continually expand the Gentlemens Circle so it reaches all the Keys groups, businesses, schools, government, everything.

HATS OFF TO ZONTA MANGROVE EDUCATIONTraveling with the pet? Plan aheadWith Memorial Day here, can the annual family vacation be far behind? That means many pet lovers will be faced with the dilemma of what do with their pets while they travel. A2009 Travel Industry Association survey indicated that 14 percent, or more than 29 million people, said they have taken a pet on a trip that was more than 50 miles away from home. Traveling animals included cats (15 percent), birds (2 percent) and either a ferret, rabbit or fish (3 percent). But 78 percent of the respondents listed the family dog as the most common traveling pet. The inconvenient change from normal routine doesnt matter much to a dog as long as it is not separated from its family. Dog owners feel the same way. Forty-three percent of pet owners said they feel guilty about leaving their dogs behind. Dogtrekker.com an online site that scopes out petfriendly places to stay while vacationing, recently released results from a 2011 analysis of American leisure travelers that indicates eight of 10 people who bring their dogs along when they travel find hotel policies and amenities important when selecting accommodations. What really stood out was not the numbers of those who travel with dogs, but the reasons why leisure travel dog owners do not travel with their dogs, said David Kendrick, who founded Dogtrekker with his wife, Roxanne. Over 40 percent said that finding dog-friendly accommodations was difficult; a third said that their dogs safety was a concern and over 30 percent said that finding things to do with [a] dog was difficult, Kendrick said.Huge messageThis survey sends a huge message to the lodging industry. The influence of this significant group of leisure travelers is rising and hoteliers should take note of their concern about expensive hotel pet fees and confusion over petfriendly policies, Kendrick said. Ahotel that promotes itself as pet friendly can really mean pet tolerant, and only just so. Many times the staff is really more interested in getting your business than welcoming your pet. No pets left unattended in the room is the norm, said Janet Fullwood, senior editor of DogTrekker. This is because a dog left in an unfamiliar environment can bark, whine, scratch, panic, tear up the furniture or otherwise cause a disturbance, damage property or terrify the housekeeping staff. Some propertiesexception is the dog is crated, she said. Planning for a trip that includes your pet is essential, Fullwood said. The first time my family traveled with our new dog, we patted ourselves on the back for finding a dog-friendly hotel and ended up eating in shifts at a Chinese restaurant across the street when we found out we couldnt leave him alone, even in a crate. Pet sitters are an option during dinner, Fullwood said, but their services can easily cost more than a meal itself. She said that many times, traveling with a pet requires compromise.Travel tipsFullwood provided these tips to help make your travel plans a vacation for every member of the family. Always speak with a live person before booking a hotel or vacation rental that claims to be dog-friendly. Many properties wont accept certain breeds, some have weight restrictions and some allow pets only in their most undesirable rooms. Pet fees can be per day or per stay, so be sure to clarify. Dont take off on a camping or hiking trip assuming that your dog can accompany you on trails. At many state and national parks, canines are restricted to campgrounds. Rules in national forests tend to be more relaxed. To minimize caninecaused distractions on the road, make sure your dog is safely secured in a crate or with a seat belt leash or harness. Familiar food, toys, bedding and other comforts from home will help the animal be more relaxed in new environments. Bring a gallon or so of water from home to minimize stomach upsets, and pack cleanup supplies and old towels for muddy feet. If you allow dogs on furniture at home, bring a sheet to cover beds and couches in hotel rooms. Make sure your dog is microchipped and has an ID tag that includes your cellphone number.

E n t e r t a i n m e n t E E v e r y N N i g h t 305-664-8400 MM 85.5 Oceanside At Snake Creek Bridge British comic Sacha Baron Cohen plays the role of a fictitious North African dictator who sets out to address the United Nations.The laughs arent coming in Sachas latest outingThe Dictator, Rated R, 83 min. Now playing nationwide. Starring Sacha Baron Cohen, Anna Faris, Ben Kingsley and directed by Larry Charles (who also directed Cohen in Borat and Brno), The Dictator tells the story of the ruthless leader of Wadiya, a fictional country in North Africa, who wants to develop nuclear weapons. Cohen plays Wadiyas dictator and supreme leader, Admiral General Haffaz Aladeen, who travels to New York City to address the United Nations. Anna Faris (Scary Movie 1, 2, 3 & 4) is Zoey, a hippie political activist with questionable grooming habits who runs an organic food store in New York. Ben Kingsley (Gan-dhi, Trans-siberian, Hugo) plays Aladeens uncle, the rightful heir to the throne in Wadiya, who plots to overthrow his nephew and sell out to the big oil companies. And scenestealing Jason Mantzoukas (Baby Mama, I Hate Valen-tines Day) is the nuclear scientist, Nadal, who is supposedly executed because the missiles arent pointyenough. Based on the previews and Cohens other films, I had high expectations for The Dictator. But about halfway into the film, I realized that something was terribly wrong. This was supposed to be a comedy, but there was no laughter in the theater. It was so eerily quiet that I looked around to be sure there were still other people in the seats. Yes, there were others but, like me, they were not laughing. Finally, almost an hour in, there were a few chuckles and, during the last 20 minutes, there was some real laughter. People snickered at some clever lines and giggled at a couple of very funny bits. In particular, (Kingsley) Aladeens speech at the signing of the new constitution is sharp and brilliantly skewers modern American politics. But most of the laughs were uneasy oh-my-god-Icant-believe-they-put-thatin-a-movietitters. Following the trend in film that aims for the coveted 18-30 year-old demographic, The Dictator is filled with male and female genitalia jokes and sight gags, including a baby delivery that goes beyond gross. Somehow, the sight of two people holding hands inside the womb of a pregnant woman in labor just doesnt seem all that hilarious. Cohen plays the dictator with his usual tongue-incheek irreverencem, but at times it appears that he like most of the audience is not really having a good time. Bug-eyed Anna Faris overacts to the point that her campy role in the Scary Movie films immediately comes to mind. And its hard to believe that this is the same Ben Kingsley who starred in the classic Gandhi. We can only hope that he got a nice fat paycheck. I will admit that I thought Borat was very funny and Cohens recent role in Hugo showed that he also has some talent as a straight actor. So it was a huge disappointment to watch his first fully-scripted film and see that talent wasted. Cohen won a screenwriting Oscar nomination for Borat and is a gifted comedian and writer. But if this is the best he and his writing team can offer, maybe he should go back to the adlib-and-ambush approach that made him famous. One last thing be sure to stay for the credits some of the outtakes are far funnier than the movie.Scripted film falls flat vs. Borat improv FILM WANOUS Florida history recognized at St. Marys BasilicaFor generations of Conchs, the Catholic Church on Truman Avenue has been known as St. Marys or St. Marys Star of the Sea. Starting May 31, the official name changes to The Basilica of St. Mary Star of the Sea. To mark the occasion, Bishop Thomas Wenski, who heads the Miami Archdiocese, will celebrate a solemn mass for the Conferral for the Insignia of the Basilica of St. Mary Star of the Sea. This comes after Februarys announcement in Rome that Pope Benedict XVI has designated Key Wests church as one of 72 minor basilicas in the United States. The basilica title is conveyed in recognition of churches with historical and spiritual importance. St. Marys Star of the Sea is the first parish (1851) in what is now the Archdiocese of Miami; its one of the oldest parishes established in Florida, and has Floridas first Catholic School (1868), which continues today. Its both a national and state designated historic site. Bishop Wenski, interviewed back in February, said in a certain sense, St. Mary Star of the Sea becomes the popes parish churchhere in the Archdiocese of Miami. That Archdiocese includes Monroe along with Miami-Dade and Broward counties. How St. Marys got the name Star of the Sea tells a bit about the history of Key West and its role in early trade routes aboard ships plying between the United States, Cuba and Louisiana.

Hurricane Monument hosts Memorial serviceWhen the barometric pressure began to drop on the eve of that Labor Day back in 1935, no one knew the hurricane that hit Lower Matecumbe Key would be one of the three strongest ever recorded in U.S. history. Astorm surge estimated at somewhere between 1820 feet swept over the island. More than 400 people died. And the ashes of 300 are interred in the Islamorada Hurricane Monument, mile marker 81.5. To commemorate all those lives lost, the Matecumbe Historical Trust will hold its annual Memorial Day Service at the monument, beginning at 9 a.m. Monday.

Sylvanius Hunineq: Since it first shed its light in Key West, Saint Marys Church has, like a star of the sea to the wandering mariner, been a star of hope and comfort in times of despair and sorrow, and a star of joy to those who have lived in its teachings. Now we know the origin of the name. But the churchs history in Key West dates back even further. The first mass recorded in the Southernmost City took place in 1846 by a priest visiting from Cuba. The May 31 mass begins at 7 p.m. Anyone interested in attending should arrive at least an hour earlier to secure a seat. Adessert reception follows mass, with trolley service provided for those who want to share some sweets at Key West Marriott Beachside Hotel, 3841 N. Roosevelt Blvd. For those into history, here are a few more dates of note, courtesy of St. Marys: 1566: Spanish Jesuits came to Florida; by 1567, a mission was reportedly established on Upper Matecumbe Key to minister to the indigenous people who were soon decimated by smallpox and measles. 1572: Jesuit authorities in Spain decided to abandon altogether Florida missions; the few remaining missionaries were recalled to Mexico. The Jesuits would not return again to Florida until 1743. 1743: Two Italian Jesuit priest explorers came from Havana and opened a mission chapel for the indigenous people in Key West. Unfortunately, the Spanish governor was unable to offer them any real protection and ordered them back to Cuba. 1844: Catholics in Key West numbered an estimated 15 families, numbering not more than 100 people (adults and children) judging from baptismal, marriage and funeral registers of that period. 1846: On October 10th, the first recorded Mass in Key West by a priest visiting from Havana. It took place on the second floor of city hall, a two story building, at the foot of Duval Street. The continuing buildup of federal military installations on the island steadily increased the number of Catholics. By 1847, the Archdiocese of Mobile (which included all of Alabama and Florida) sent a newlyordained Irish priest, Father J. A. Corcoran, to Key West. 1850: Under the direction of Pope Pius IX, the State of Florida, East of the Apalachicola River, was transferred from the Diocese of Mobile to the newly formed Diocese of Savannah, Georgia.First mass recorded in 1846From St.Marys,5B Our Lady of Lourdes grotto at St.Marys Star of the Sea is a popular site for the faithful whenever a hurricane threatens the island.A stone monument memorializes Sister Gabriels words from the 1922 dedication:As long as the grotto stands,Key West will never again experience the brunt of a hurricane. Matecumbe and Windley Key. Many of the workers were World War I Army vets, the so-called Bonus Army deployed by the Works Progress Administration. They were housed in make shift camps that did not survive the storm. An evacuation train sent from Homestead washed off the track in Upper Matecumbe Key, adding to the death toll. The Labor Day hurricane killed 408 people, most of them Islamorada residents and the Army contingent that failed to evacuate in time. This 1935 storm still ranks among the top three Category 5 storms to make landfall in the U.S. (the others were Hurricane Camille in 1969 and Hurricane Andrew in 1992). Afew Islamorada residents did manage to survive. Last year, the Historical Trust sponsored a public forum where five of those survivors came back together to share memories of that fateful day and its aftermath. The names are by now familiar to Upper Keys residents: Russell, Pinder, Parker, Pellicer. Barbara Edgar, trust spokeswoman, helped organize last years forum, noting at the time this is a rare opportunity to listen to Joe Pinder, Alma Pinder Dalton, Laurette Pinder Russell, Norman Parker and Charles Pellicer speak in person about the Keys during the early years. The wonderful experiences of island living and the disaster of the 1935 hurricane. Irving Eyster, President of the Matecumbe Historical Trust, will welcome folks to the Memorial Day service, which will include an invocation by the Rev. Tony Hammond of Island Community Church. Boy Scout Troop 914 will present colors. Eyster will give the history of the Hurricane Monument and dignitaries will lay a memorial wreath, sponsored by Centennial Bank, at the monument. The service is open to the public.
