Shayne Ijames attended Key Largo School from second grade until June 2011. At that point, he moved to live with his father Michael Ijames in Port St. Lucie and enrolled in sixth grade at Southport Middle School. Leitch says her son, "a laid back surfer-type," succumbed to the institutionalized emphasis on test-taking and bullying from eighth-graders who called him gay because of his long blond hair. Ijames hanged himself. "One of them," Leitch says of her son's tormentors, "the very next morning after he died, texted him happy funeral'on his cell phone." "People need to know what's going on with their children. I never thought in a million years people would bully him. And the FCATs are killing our kids. You can ace school, be an honor-roll student, but if you're not a good test taker or need more time to take the test, you don't get to go to the next grade." An online "memories" page attached to Ijames'obituary gives a hint of what he went through. On May 12, Jorge Rameriz wrote: "Dear Shayne, I can't fight back tears while writing this but I wish I was there to stop you and defend you and stand up to those bullies who caused you death." Leitch says her son's former classmates see "just an empty seat and they don't understand what happened. But if it can happen to my child, a carefree, laid-back, wonderful kid, it can happen to anybody." In the 2005 edition of the Journal of Adolescent Health, doctors Matthew Aalsma and Marla Eisenberg conclude, "Up to three-quarters of young adolescents experience some type of bullying ... and up to one-third report more extreme experiences." "The psychological consequences of bullying are also significant: Victims of bullying have reported increased rates of depression, suicidal ideation and loneliness.... Bullying among peers, although common, is not acceptable social behavior among youth." Leitch says administrators at her son's school haven't addressed the issue and "just brushed it under the rug. They're acting like it never even happened." But Mike Lannon, superintendent of the St. Lucie County School District and a former Keys schools superintendent, said Shayne's father, the custodial parent, "has issued no concerns."

Several dive-gear manufacturers now market pole spears, catch bags and other implements specifically designed to hasten the demise of the invasive reef fish that bristles with more than a dozen venomous spines. The Reef Environmental Education Foundation, a citizen-scientist organization headquartered in Key Largo, normally encourages its members to count not kill saltwater fish. But when it comes to the Pacific-native lionfish, REEF offers a package deal on puncture-proof gloves and catch bags to get the voracious and fast-breeding species out of South Atlantic waters. With no known natural predators in the Atlantic and a perpetual breeding cycle, lionfish numbers have escalated rapidly. The species can withstand a wide range of temperatures, eats anything that it can fit in its mouth and may live up to 15 years a recipe for disaster at the reef and all of its denizens. Staff from Quiescence Diving "brought in a 14-inch lionfish from The Elbow [reef] this morning," REEF General Manager Martha Klitzkle said Thursday, hefting the carcass from the center's lionfish-storage freezer. "You may not see as many lionfish out there because divers have been doing a pretty good job," Klitzkle said, "but they definitely are still out there." As the height of the summer dive season nears, lionfish-specific hunting gear has been a hot item at the Divers Direct store in Key Largo, said staffer Ron Spodnik, a divemaster. "People are sick and tired of seeing lionfish in our water," Spodnik said. "If we don't do anything to strip them off the reef, all you're going to see is lionfish." Atypical lionfish pole spear, such as those made by A Plus Marine Supply, have a shorter length of less than a yard, which makes it easier toSpecial gear is developed to snag themON THE WATERPAPAL PRESTIGE See Bully,2ACharterschool forMarathon?Middle Keys parents have the opportunity next week to learn how to set up a public charter school and get questions answered by an industry representative. Christian Cascone, southern U.S. director of real estate development for Imagine Schools, will be on hand June 6 at Kirk of the Keys Presbyterian Church, 8811 Overseas Highway (across U.S. 1 from Florida Keys Marathon Airport) beginning at 6 p.m. Imagine Schools is an Arlington, Va.,-based charter school management company operating campuses in 13 states, including Florida, and the District of Columbia. Rob Sasse, Imagine's South Florida vice president, says Cascone will gauge parent interest and report back. Melissa Hager, who homeschools two of her children, says area parents have expressed interest and the meeting is meant to test the waters. "Right now there's nothing in the works," she says. "It's purely just to talk about what level of interest there is in Marathon. Charter schools, spurred on by a cooperative Legislature and groundswell of parental support, draw funding from the state, passed through by the local school district for a 5 percent administrative fee. Charters are different from traditional public schools in that teachers are allowed to implement a variety of instructional and progression methods, and not bound by sometimes-restrictive teaching and reporting policies. There are six charters in the Keys, serving students from prekindergarten through high school: The Big Pine Academy, Key West Montessori, Key West Collegiate School, Sigsbee Charter in Key West, Ocean Studies in Tavernier and Treasure Village Montessori in Islamorada.SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWSeveral makers of dive shirts have added no-lionfish designs to raise awareness of the problem.Dave Horstein of Dive Dawg Apparel shows one example on display at a scuba trade show.See Lionfish,3A By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org

WKYZ Florida KeysPirateRadioKeyWest.com 96.7 FM 101.7 FM Keys News on the half-hour Daily (M-F) News Director Don Riggs M or nings 7:30 8:30 9:30 A f t er no ons 4:30 5:30 One and done forRepsol rigSpain's Repsol oil company said Tuesday it is "almost certain" to withdraw from exploration in Cuba after spending an estimated $150 million on a dry well and seeing far more profitable prospects in other countries such as Brazil and Angola. The drilling site was just 70 miles off Key West, prompting concerns in the Keys of a potential environmental disaster should the well leak like the DeepWater Horizon rig in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. The Repsol announcement was a blow to Cuba's hopes to strike it rich quickly, jump-start its stagnant economy and trim its dependence on Venezuelan subsidies, although another foreign company Malaysia's stateowned Petronas is drilling a separate test well and others have options to follow. "We won't do another well" in Cuba, Repsol Chairman Antonio Brufau said in presenting the company's 2012-16 business strategy at a news conference in Madrid on Tuesday. "The well we drilled turned out dry and it's almost certain that we won't do any more activity there." Petronas is drilling in a partnership with GazpromNeft of Russia in waters about 110 miles west of the Repsol lease. That well is expected to take four to five months and if it hits oil, it could quickly brighten Cuba's oil future. If not, further exploration in Cuban waters could suffer some significant delays, industry watchers say. Repsol spent about $150 million since 2000 exploring off Cuba's northern coast near Havana, with one well in 2004 that did not find oil "in commercial quantities" and the one this year that was dry, said Jorge Pinon, a longtime Cuba oil analyst with the University of Texas. Its combine with Statoil of Norway and ONGC of India also has an option to drill a third well later this year but clearly felt its money would be better spent in other countries with more profitable opportunities, Pinon said. "If you had $100 in your pocket, and I offer you Cuba, Brazil or Angola, which one would you take?" he said. "There are many other places around the world much more attractive to exploration." Pinon said the two bad wells are not realistic indications of whether Cuba in fact has crude deposits off its northern coast. The U.S. Geological Service has estimated the area has 5 billion barrels of crude, while Cuban officials have put the figure at 20 billion barrels. Lee Hunt, president of the International Association of Drilling Contractors, said that in the exploratory drilling industry, it is not unusual for four out of five wells to turn up dry. He likened the trade to gambling. But Repsol's withdrawal raised the critical question of how offshore exploration in Cuba can continue when only one platform in the world, Scarabeo-9, can operate there. The platform was built in Asia with less than 10 percent of U.S. equipment to sidestep Washington's embargo on the communist government.

Archbishop of Miami Thomas Wenski and Father John Baker of St. Mary presided over events that attracted more than 1,200 people to the church on Truman Avenue in Key West. Florida now has five minor basilicas and the U.S. 73. "Basilica" is a title bestowed on a church of historic and spiritual importance. As well as other attributes, St. Mary, built in 1846, is renowned for the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes, erected in 1922 and said to protect Key West from serious hurricane impacts. "In naming a church a basilica, it is kind of making it like the Pope's church, so that if the Pope ever showed up in Key West, he could feel at home here at St. Mary Star of the Sea," Wenski said. The new basilica's coat of arms includes a conch shell, a symbol of the Florida Keys. The process of becoming a basilica involved responding to 120 questions in Latin and demonstrating the church's historical significance, architectural uniqueness and spiritual characteristics.Archbishop presides over ceremoniesRELIGIONsaid hadn't heard of Leitch, but she says she's tried repeatedly and unsuccessfully to reach district officials. Janice Karst, the district's spokeswoman, says "there is no documentation of any complaints at the school" and no law enforcement investigation. She says Leitch's allegations run "completely contrary to all indications from the school as well as the custodial parent, who has been in contact with the school principal since this tragedy, and according to the principal, told her he was happy with the school and found no fault with them." She added, "Acrisis intervention team went to the school on the day this tragedy came to light, as is protocol and no students, staff or any other adults came forward indicating there was any undue pressure on this child. He was described as a very pleasant young man who was well liked and had many friends." Michael Ijames, Shayne's father, took to FaceBook to express his feelings: "I am a wave emotion that flows from angry to sad to the normal me and then we start all over. His smile lifted my heart, his voice gave me hope and his life gave me pride. The very beat of my heart is gone and I know now how to replace it." Bullying is the topic of extensive national discourse, particularly with the recent release of the documentary "Bully." It depicts real-life bullying and its effects on young people, even profiling two students who took their own lives as a result. John Padget, a Key West resident and member of the state Board of Education, paid to have the film screened at the Tropic Cinema in Key West. Monroe County State Attorney Dennis Ward has worked with Keys schools to initiate an education system that helps identify bullying. And at Key West High School, freshman Morgan Denhart is working to start an anti-bullying club. Leitch says she's working to start a foundation, One Love named after Shayne's favorite Bob Marley song that would place "bullying ambassadors" in schools to provide a sort of peer mediation process. She has also set up a fund in her son's name at Capital Bank; donations will be used to purchase a headstone. On Sunday, Leitch is hosting a celebration of life at the Caribbean Club, mile marker 104 bayside in Key Largo, beginning at 4 p.m. and including a fish fry, live music and face-painting.District: We have no reportsFrom Bully,1A Manager likely to be chosen TuesdayDespite some lastminute wrangling, the Key West City Commission on Tuesday agreed to a list of four finalists to replace City Manager Jim Scholl and in the coming days will publicly vet those candidates before making a selection on Tuesday. When the commission met this week, Commissioner Clayton Lopez wanted to add Phyllis Tynes-Saunders to the short list for consideration. She directs the MiamiDade County Department of Human Services. Lopez wanted her added despite advice from City Attorney Shawn Smith not to include candidates who don't meet the minimum advertised qualifications; a screening by consultant Colin Baezinger that spelled out why TynesSaunders shouldn't be included; and a contrary decision by a commissionappointed screening committee. Through an e-mail and petition drive, Lopez's District 6 constituents pushed to get TynesSaunders in the mix. "I'm actually just asking for consideration of Ms. Tynes-Saunders," he said, "because of the fact she, in my opinion, actually her qualifications meet the requirements that the commission set down." The job description calls for five years of experience at the top level of a local government. Baezinger judged Tynes-Saunders' two-plus decades with Miami-Dade as incomparable. Tynes-Saunders'mother even addressed commissioners, asking for support for her daughter. The final 4-3 vote came down with Lopez and commissioners Tony Yaniz and Billy Wardlow on the losing side. Commissioner Teri Johnston said the whole discussion was "diluting the process. We have [four] highly, highly qualified candidates in front of us. These people not only met but exceeded the criteria in every single category." The finalists are: Thaddeus Cohen, assistant city manager andCommunity 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. Apublic meet-and-greet with the four finalists was scheduled for Friday night at the DoubleTree Grand Key Resort. Today, the commission will conduct public interviews in a workshop beginning at 2 p.m. in Old City Hall on Green Street. Tuesday in a special meeting starting at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall, commissioners are scheduled to make a final decision. There was an initial pool of 80 vying to replace Scholl, whose $180,000 annual contract expires on July 1; he decided to not seek renewal after five years in the job.Today,public can sit in the interviewsSEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Diver dies off Keys An Illinois diver who disappeared on a Thursday trip from Tavernier was found dead 26 hours later. The body of Raymond Lent, 62, of Oswego was recovered around 12:30 p.m. Friday, miles from the dive site at Davis Ledge where he was last seen. Lent was traveling to the Upper Keys with a group that booked a morning trip from the Florida Keys Dive Center. Lent's dive buddy told Monroe County Sheriff's Office deputies that the two submerged at Davis Ledge, about five miles off northern Plantation Key. When Lent had trouble submerging, his buddy suggested that Lent return to the dive boat Little Dipper. The buddy kept an eye on Lent and saw him "swim toward the boat on the surface." The buddy then descended to join the group. When the group later surfaced, the buddy discovered Lent was not aboard. The boat crew made a quick search and sent out a mayday call. Boats and aircraft from the Sheriff's Office, U.S. Coast Guard, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the Key Largo Volunteer Fire-Rescue Department's dive team joined the search but found no sign of Lent. When Lent's body was found mid-day Friday, it was 15 miles out to sea and 10 miles north of Davis Ledge. ACoast Guard boat brought the body to shore. An autopsy will be performed by the Monroe County Medical Examiner's Office.Illinois man disappears off Davis LedgeUPPER KEYSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com

Athree-prong "shocker" metal tip tends to immobilize the lionfish and prevents the prickly fish from sliding down the shaft toward the diver. Ideal lionfish gloves are puncture-resistant, made to hospital standards that guard against needle punctures. The gloves may cost up to $50 a pair but lionfish spines can penetrate lesser gloves, REEF notes. Likewise, catch bags designed to hold lionfish have easy access and solid sides to guard against protruding spines. "Mesh bags are not a good idea for lionfish," Klitzkle said. For topside wear, diveapparel firms now create Tshirts intended to raise awareness of the lionfish menace. "We're fighting an uphill battle against lionfish but it needs to be done," said Jeff Charnogorsky of Dive Dawg Apparel. Amy Slate's Amoray Dive Resort in Key Largo kicks off the summer's lionfish-derby season Monday with a special hunting trip. REEF Projects Director Lad Akins will conduct a training session.

Go to www.reef.org or call 8520030. Divers Direct has signed on as a major sponsor of additional 2012 lionfish derbies coordinated by REEF in Fort Lauderdale, Abaco and Palm Beach. The firm also holds workshops for divers "who want pointers on how to catch lionfish and what to do with them once they're caught," Divers Direct executive Kathy Smith said. "All divers and people who enjoy watersports should be concerned about what lionfish are going to our environment," Smith said. "We want to do our part to manage the problem." In 2011, REEF derbies in the Keys, South Florida and the Bahamas harvested 3,542 lionfish. Currently, no 2012 derbies have been announced for the Middle or Lower Keys. Lionfish have been spreading throughout the Caribbean for more than a decade after some were released or escaped into the Atlantic Ocean. Lionfish were not seen in Keys waters until January 2009. "Lionfish are not the only nonnative species sighted in the Atlantic but it is the only one that has taken hold and reproduced to the point where it's created a viable population," said Alecia Adamson, a former REEF operations director. The only positive note in the lionfish campaign: Their meat is very tasty and is gaining acceptance among diners. There is no size or bag limit on harvesting lionfish, but a saltwater fishing license is required.An industry is bornFrom Lionfish,1A Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWRon Spodnik of Divers Direct in Key Largo dons punctureproof gloves to show a short-shaft pole spear designed specifically for lionfish hunters.

Andre Durrive, 25, was charged with possessing cocaine with intent to distribute as a result of the 6:30 a.m. raid involving Monroe County Sheriff's Office deputies and U.S. Border Patrol agents, says a Sheriff's Office report. "Asearch of the residence turned up 12.9 grams of cocaine prepackaged for sale and 5.1 grams of marijuana, also prepackaged," agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin said. Scales, $812 in cash, plastic bags and items commonly used to dilute cocaine were seized. Durrive also was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Liza Lopez, 36, who lives with Durrive in the house off mile marker 101.5, was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and paraphernalia. It was the second Upper Keys arrest on drug-distribution charges this week.

That agency is recommended to received $300,000, $27,600 less than it received this year. The County Commission gets the final say but usually goes with the board's advice. Twenty-nine agencies applied for money. The only other ones to get triple-digit funding were Wesley House Family Services ($160,000), Florida Keys Children's Shelter ($159,000), Monroe Association of ReMARCable Citizens ($155,000) and Hospice of the Florida Keys/Visiting Nurse Association ($141,000). Two agencies received no money: The Southernmost Homeless Assistance League and the Bahama Village Music Program, which was one of two agencies applying for the first time. The other was the Anchors Aweigh Club, a Key West 12-step recovery program; it received $2,200. Agencies receiving funding provide a gamut of services, from the Grace Jones Day Care Center in Marathon ($40,000) to the Good Health Clinic Tavernier ($63,000) to the Literacy Volunteers of America ($10,000). The Human Services Advisory Board prioritized funding for groups that: Use grants to leverage outside funding. Do not duplicate existing services. Demonstrate need for services. Demonstrate sound financial management The nonprofits are placed into one of three categories and weighted percentages are assigned as a guideline to funding. Medical services receive roughly 65 percent, while core social services receive 30 percent and qualityof-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).County board recommends annual moneyKeynoter StaffSOCIAL SERVICES L.A.Times crossword puzzle LETTER OF INTRODUCTIONSolution in the classifieds ACROSS 1Tip off5Symbols of thinness10Name of four Holy Roman emperors14Cost for classified info19Rod on a rig 20Tennyson work 21Club for a chip 22Back biter? 23Lets leave __ that 24Olive Oyls creator 25Penitent period 26Univ.VIPs 27Packrats moving need? 29Scan on a bulb? 31How Hawaiian shirts are worn 32Wears a long face 33Cartoon dog34Multi-vol.references35Bungles 36Like Handels music 40Big,in Variety43Stretched to the max44Holiday landing site45Writer Santha Rama __46Strippers scrapbook item? 51Gullible sort 52Annapolis inst. 54It might consist of sandbags 55Cry of exasperation 56Not neg. 57Uncompromising words59Jackies predecessor61Spicy cuisine 64Self-titled 1990s band album 65Topnotch Carnival vessel? 69Choreographer de Mille 72Plays (with) 74Handrail post 75On the up-and-up 77Consumer protection org. 79Tavern turmoil 81Half a 50s comedy couple 83__ bene 84Per 86Spot for digital greeting displays?90Weather report staple91Like many rewards93Mysterious character94Acts as a shill for,say96Sheer 97All done 99Darths daughter 101Poetic preposition 102They may need breaking in 103Scholars pursuit, briefly 106Moisture-resistant pullover? 110Touchscreen device with a strap?112Nocturnal disturbance113Bop on the bean114Rivera of Broadways West Side Story115Hamlet,for one 116Go easy? 117Court cover-up 118Comfy-cozy 119City north of Pittsburgh 120Works on a muffler121Legal postponement122Impressionists 123Mail-routing abbr.

Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia granted Noah Mitchell, 35, a bond of $10,000 Wednesday morning so he can stay out of custody until the appeal is decided. The appeal process typically takes anywhere from a year to a year and a half, said Assistant State Attorney Terri Hunnewell, prosecutor in the case. Ajury convicted Mitchell of felony animal cruelty on May 23 after six hours of deliberation. Animal cruelty is a third-degree felony. Garcia sentenced Mitchell to nine months. Mitchell also cannot own pets, and must undergo a psychiatric evaluation and perform eight hours of community service a month for five years. He also cannot consume alcohol for five years. Garcia also ordered Mitchell to pay $820 in court costs. Mitchell's attorney, Donald Barrett, said much of the appeal is based on two objections in Hunnewell's case. Barrett said that during closing arguments to jurors, Hunnewell misstated the burden of proof and definition of reasonable doubt. Barrett objected but Garcia allowed Hunnewell to continue. Also, Barrett said one of the veterinarians who testified about the extent of the dog's injuries was discussing "matters outside of her expertise." The testimony was critical to the case because the veterinarian said the dog's injuries were too serious to have been caused accidentally. Mitchell was convicted of beating his then 8-moth-old Labrador retriever during a barbecue on Oct. 3, 2010, that was attended by at least two other people. Police and prosecutors say Mitchell was angry with Bubba for grabbing a steak from the kitchen counter of his Pimlico Lane home. Hunnewell said Mitchell dropped, kicked and punched Bubba. Mitchell never denied injuring the dog but insists it wasn't intentional. Bubba had collapsed lungs, a damaged larynx and six fractured ribs. One veterinarian said the dog's injuries were consistent with being dropped from a two-story building or being hit by a car. Bubba is now living with someone else.But Mitchell remains free on appealBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comIN THE COURTSWanted: Red-snapper information for researchA40-day recreational season for red snapper in Gulf of Mexico waters opened Friday, and state biologists want anglers to tell them about their catches. "By filling out a survey card or making a phone call, anglers can provide Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission biologists valuable information about red snapper and other reef fish," agency spokeswoman Amanda Nalley said. Of particular interest will be red snapper found with red or orange tags near the fish's dorsal fin. "FWC biologists have been tagging and releasing reef fish such as snapper and grouper in the Gulf of Mexico since 2009 to evaluate fish survival after recreational anglers catch and release these species," Nalley said. "With every report of a tagged fish, researchers gain a better understanding of the rate of survival after these fish are released." Surveyors will visit several Gulf coast marinas and docks during the 40-day season for Gulf red snapper that runs through July 10. The season covers state and federal waters north of the Keys, and state waters in the Atlantic. Federal waters on the Atlantic side are closed. In Monroe County, U.S. 1 generally divides the stock of Atlantic and Gulf red snapper. "As long as they head out into the gulf side, they should be fine," Nalley said. Anyone who catches a red snapper can request a postage-paid survey card in the mail by e-mailing their name and address to FishStats@MyFWC.com. Desired information includes "where a red snapper is caught and released, type of fishing equipment used, the size of the fish and its condition." Gulf red-snapper stocks are considered to be improving but managers still want to see more breeding-age red snapper in the fishery before they declare it to be sustainable. "Red snapper are estimated to live more than 50 years but the current stock consists primarily of fish that are only a few years old," according to the FWC. "Older fish are the key to rebuilding the population, because older female red snapper produce more eggs than younger females." In other fishery news, the statewide season on Atlantic snook and Gulf of Mexico amberjack closed Friday. Harvesting snook has been prohibited in the Keys since a January 2010 cold snap killed untold numbers of the state's prized game fish. The FWC will discuss the current status of snook at its board meeting June 27 and 28 meeting in West Palm Beach.FWC asking anglers for catch reportsKEYS FISHINGJara in running for two jobsAs the Monroe County School Board closes in on selecting the next schools chief, Superintendent Jesus Jara, in the running to keep his job, is also keeping his options open. Jara, formerly a principal in the Springfield (Mass.) Public Schools system, is one of two finalists for the top job in that district. Jara is also on a list of five finalists being considered for the Florida Keys job. Whittled from an initial pool of 56 applicants, a 22-person superintendent search committee, meeting in Marathon on Wednesday, selected its top five and passed those recommendations to the School Board. They are: Thomas Gay, a principal administrator for a Broward County private school. Shannon Goodsell, superintendent of Tahlequah (Okla.) Public Schools in Tahlequah. Jara, appointed by Gov. Rick Scott. Mark Porter, superintendent of South Washington County (Minn.) Schools. Edward Shine, superintendent of the Rye (N.Y.) City School District. Azell Cavaan, chief communications officer for Springfield Public Schools, says as part of that district's process, three members of the School Committee will travel to Key West to evaluate Jara on June 8. She says that will be followed by an interview in Massachusetts on June 18, with a committee selection coming by June 30. "They haven't discussed a start date." In the Keys, 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 by the board rather than elected; voters made the change in a countywide referendum in 2010. Jara has said he applied for the Springfield job because he is working here without a contract and would like job security; he has a wife and three children who never moved to the Keys from Miami-Dade County. The School Board will make its final decision June 28 at a meeting beginning at 5 p.m. at Coral Shores High School in Tavernier. That session will be preceded by three days of meet-and-greets with the applicants and their spouses, the times and locations of which are being worked out.Superintendent slots in Keys, MassachusettsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com

EDITORIALThe feds get it right on votingFlorida has been going in the wrong direction when it comes to regulation reform'On two fronts, federal officials on Thursday told Florida its efforts at voting "reforms" are flawed and in fact disenfranchise voters rather than bring more voters into the process. In one, U.S. District Court Judge Robert Hinkle issued an injunction barring the state from requiring groups that conduct voter registration drives to submit the voters'applications to elections officials within 48 hours of filling them out. Under previous law, independent groups had 10 days to submit the applications, and Hinkle effectively said the previous window opens the door for more voters to get involved. He was scathing in his rebuke of the 48-hour rule, which the Legislature passed last year: "If the goal is to discourage voter-registration drives and thus also to make it harder for new voters to register, the 48-hour deadline may succeed," Hinkle wrote. "But if the goal is to further the state's legitimate interests without unduly burdening the rights of voters and voter registration organizations, 48 hours is a bad choice." We couldn't have said it better. In fact, we continue scratching our collective heads at the concept that allowing less time to submit voter registrations and shortening the number of days for early voting also new from the Legislature last year somehow increases voter participation. The judge got it right. The state might appeal but if it does, we hope a higher court finds the same way Hinkle did that voter suppression isn't legal. On the second front, the Justice Department's lead civil-rights lawyer, T. Christian Herren Jr., wrote a two-page letter to the state Thursday telling it to quit purging the voting rolls of noncitizens. The Miami Herald wrote: "So far, Florida has flagged 2,700 potential noncitizen voters and sent the list to county elections supervisors, who have found the data and methodology to be flawed and problematic. The list of potential noncitizen voters many of whom have turned out to be lawful citizens and voters disproportionately hits minorities, especially Hispanics." Under the Voting Rights Act of 1965, Florida voting law can't be changed without federal approval because five counties including Monroe discriminated against minority voters in the past. Any change even for local elections must get federal approval. Herren said that hasn't happened. Florida's been on the cutting edge when it comes to voting but on the wrong side. Rather than open the process, it's incrementally gutting it. It's too bad we need the feds to police our voting rights. But it's necessary, as Thursday's actions show. Recognize this? It's the largest resort in the Florida Keys but back then,in 1970,it was the 100-room Indies Inn.Now it's Hawks Cay Resort on Duck Key, featuring rooms,suites and villas,along with a dolphin attraction,huge marina and much more.Developer Bryan Kirk opened the Indies Inn in January 1960. A month later,it got its own post office,housed in a 5-foot-by-5-foot converted tiled bathroom in the hotel's executive office area.The resort's post office closed that September after Hurricane Donna struck.Photo courtesy FLORIDA STATE ARCHIVESCELEBRATING OUR PAST LETTERS TO THE EDITORRetain band stipendsI am the proud parent of current and former Coral Shores High School marching, concert and jazz band students. I have been involved with the band boosters for many years, having recently served two years as Upper Keys Hurricane Band Booster president, a job now held by Wayne Carter. There are eight band parents on the booster board and we endeavor all year to support the extremely underfunded band and color guard so they can remain intact and successful. Having worked closely with both Robert Sax and Deborah Miller, our band and color guard directors, I have intimate knowledge of the tremendous amount of time, dedication, energy and money the marching band program at Coral Shores requires of them, all outside of school. The marching band does not practice during school. Neither does the color guard. I am ceaselessly amazed at their ability to perform this feat year after year for very little reward. Obviously, they do it for the love of their calling, their profession and the love of the kids. But they do have a legitimate need to be compensated and their stipend barely covers the expenses placed upon them to travel to and from school for rehearsals, not to mention their time. I think Wayne Carter broke it down that Robert Sax barely makes $5 per hour for the time he puts in. This is under minimum wage. He is a professional and has taken, along with Ms. Miller, the band program, and the marching band in particular, to a new award-winning level that was never achieved before. Mr. Sax and Ms. Miller act as mentor, aunt, uncle and parent figure when the kids need them on a daily basis. During marching season, June to November, this group of kids bonds and learns leadership, teamwork and other life skills like they never would. Please do not deny the after-school stipends at Coral Shores for Mr. Robert Sax or Ms. Deborah Miller and sacrifice such a worthwhile program for so many. Joan Teach IslamoradaConch football:ProblemsIt was a travesty to see the spring football game between our Key West High School Conchs and South Dade. After coaching in the high school ranks for the past 30 years, I was able to get some film from area coaches and view the play that took place. What I viewed was a Conch team running a very complex offense that even members of the U.S. Naval Academy team have problems running until their senior year. In my 30 years of coaching, from the Pop Warner ranks to the professional ranks, the K.I.S.S concept (keep it simple, stupid) is always a good method to use when you introduce a new style of offense or defense. However, with the new head coach, a very complicated system was installed, one in which I am sure the more experienced and more qualified applicants who put in for the position would not have done. But due to friendships in the administration, this is what the athletes at Key West High will have to endure through the whole 2012-13 season. I have also never heard or seen in my 30 years of coaching an initial camp with 74 athletes that dwindled down to 34. Shouldn't red flags be waving that there is a problem? In any case, my stomach aches, as do those among other Key Westers in seeing what the 2012-13 season will bring against even more competitive teams the Conchs will play against. The only ones who suffer are the athletes, and it is all because of friendship. It is just so sad to see this in Key West, where sports were held in such high regards and our football teams were always producing quality athletes and great wins for the town. Ken Pickens Lake MaryTurtles get a boostI would like to thank Cabana Breezes, Chris, April and the staff for hosting the World Turtle Day celebration.

Scott sat with the deer to keep her from going into the road until she could be helped by the FWC. Della and Scott would like everyone to slow down.

White St. Partners LLC is under contract to buy the 157unit, 23-acre Old Town parcel from Southeast Housing LLC, the U.S. Navy's private housing partner. David Paul Horan, a Key West attorney representing Southeast, says applying an affordable set-aside 30 percent is the number considered in the city's comprehensive plan and discussed by commissioners would diminish the value of the property some $5 million or $8 million, prompting him to consider litigation. No one's revealed a purchase price, but some estimates have Peary Court going for $25 million to $30 million. Last month, Thomas Beck, director of the state Department of Economic Opportunity's Division of Community Development, said Peary Court is not subject to the 30 percent set-aside. But in November, another DEO staffer, Rebecca Jetton, said the 30 percent rule does apply. City Attorney Shawn Smith and City Planner Don Craig say the latest DEO interpretation could be challenged. As is common in discourse involving military affairs, Horan wasted no time in playing the patriotism card. "Our service personnel should have homes of the same quality as comparable homes of non-military housing," he says. "The sale of Peary Court will ensure that our service members will continue to receive new and improved housing." Blocking the sale "would take $5 to $8 million away from housing for naval personnel and their families. I'm asking you to thank our naval personnel for their service to our country." Of the threat of litigation: "You have a fine city attorney that you should speak with privately and discuss the city's chances of enforcing affordability and defending a takings case under the Bert Harris Act; the cost could be great and the chances of prevailing slim." The Bert Harris Act, passed in 1995, allows a cause of action if property owners can demonstrate government action "inordinately burdens" their property, for instance, a substantial diminution of value. The state Division of Corporations indicates White St. Partners comprises Miami real estate moguls Paulo Melo and Nelson Stabile, and Everett Atwell, the former CEO of the Cortex Cos. White St. representative Ralf Brookes, an attorney from Cape Coral who used to live in Key West, says his client understands the importance of affordable housing at Peary Court but does not want to be bound by a specific number or percentage. "I've never had conditions on a negotiation. It's very difficult if you put parameters on your framework for negotiating out front. It's saying I'm not going to the room unless you do these things." With that, White St. withdrew its request for a development agreement.Southeast withdraws initial planBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTMate caught with undersize dolphinAn Islamorada charterboat mate who tossed undersized dolphin off a resort dock Wednesday was arrested by a state fishery officer. Donald A. Ross, 24, was charged with interfering with a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officer. Officer Jason Rafter said in his report that while looking at the charter dock at the Postcard Inn Beach Resort and Marina at Holiday Isle, he saw what appeared to be undersized dolphin on a rack. As Rafter approached the charter boat Phoebe the officer said Ross "started grabbing undersized dolphin off the spikes and dropping them in the water." Ross, who listed a North Carolina address, reportedly threw at least one fish into the water after Rafter shouted at him to stop. Rafter seized two remaining dolphin, well below the species'20-inch fork-length size limit, as evidence. Lobster chargesStock Island resident Yoao Noa Vega, 41, was arrested on four misdemeanors, including interfering with an FWC officer, after a Memorial Day incident in Safety Harbor. Noa Vega, seen snorkeling with a speargun Monday, reportedly denied having any fish when questioned by FWC Lt. Roy Payne. Payne borrowed Noa Vega's mask and fins, then searched the bottom. Payne came up with two speared lobster. Noa Vega was cited for possessing two speared and undersized lobster in a closed season.Keynoter StaffCRIME FRONT
As economic prognosticators get more anxious, Floridians feel more optimistic. Consumer confidence improved across the state this month, the University of Florida reported Tuesday, even as a national survey showed spreading gloom. The difference may lie in how the questions are asked, but also highlight the new sense of iffy-ness surrounding the current recovery. "The sky isn't falling. It's a recovery running into some headwinds," said Sean Snaith, an economist at the University of Central Florida. The UF survey came out the same day that the New York-based Conference Board reported a sharp drop in its national survey of consumer confidence. Part of the difference may come from the surveys themselves. UF pollsters ask questions focused on personal finance and economic conditions, while the Conference Board asks about job prospects and business conditions. Apreliminary sampling by UF this month put the confidence index at 77, three points higher than in April and nine points higher than a year ago. Both represent significant increases, and put the index just under the postrecession high of 78 reached in April 2010. The three-point gain in UF's confidence index comes after three months of declines. It also coincides with a growing economic crisis in Europe that analysts warn could reverse the rebound under way in the United States. Investors are becoming more anxious, leading to some ugly days on Wall Street in recent weeks. The Dow Jones stock index see-sawed its way to a 125-point gain Tuesday, even as fears of a banking meltdown in Spain sent cut into the day's bullishness. Washington also is causing anxiety as economists warn of another recession if mandated spending cuts take effect next year as part of a debt-reduction plan. The cuts only take effect if Congress and the White House can't work out another solution. Chris McCarty, head of polling for UF, noted the European and Washington issues probably aren't yet showing up in the UF survey, but could cause another reversal in confidence if the global news doesn't improve in the coming weeks and months. Statewide, the numbers look encouraging. Florida's unemployment rate is down from 9.4 percent to 8.7 percent in the past six months, and most counties are also seeing employers adding jobs. The Federal Reserve released its state-by-state index of leading economic indicators, and the report showed Florida's economy was likely to grow by more than 1 percent through October. The UF questions are the same used by the University of Michigan's index of national consumer confidence. Unlike its counterpart at the Conference Board, the Michigan survey showed confidence at a five-year high in May. Spending questions can make the UF survey and Michigan surveys more sensitive to gas prices, which have been falling in recent months. "I understand why people are feeling better off," survey director Chris McCarty said. "Gas plays into it a lot." Regular gasoline costs about 3.47 cents a gallon in Florida, 33 cents less than it did a month ago, according to AAA.

Two Canes sign on for collegeTwo Coral Shores High School athletes capped their senior year by signing to play football for Ave Maria University.Andrew Garcia and David Bogue signed formal letters of intent during the spring jamboree on May 24 at George M. Barley Jr. Stadium.Garcia was a four-year player for the Hurricanes and the team's leading rusher in 2011. Aspeedster, Garcia scored 11 touchdowns while gaining 1,512 yards on 104 carries. He also had 282 kickoff return yards and 92 more on punt returns. "Andrew has a work ethic that will make him a great success at the next level," Coral Shores head coach Ed Holly said. "Any time a player of Andrew's character and caliber is in your program, you are blessed."Bogue won a starting job at defensive end in his lone season playing football. The 6-foot-4, 200-pounder played in all 10 Hurricane games with 64 tackles, including eight sacks. He was credited with 21 quarterback pressures to go with his eight fumble recoveries."David's best football is ahead of him," Holly said. "Ave Maria University got a steal when they signed David Bogue.... David is a great player, but he is a better person."Ave Maria, a private Catholic school near Naples, went 0-9 in the Gyrenes'first season in 2011. Ave Maria plays in the NAIA.

He hit .283, scored 19 runs, drove in 19 and stole 19 bases. He also had three doubles a triple and a home run. Speed was his biggest asset."It changed a lot of games for us and allowed us to be very aggressive with him on base," said coach Miguel Menendez. Abreu, who played with a fiery, oft-confrontational style as a junior, developed into a controlled leader as a senior. "I thought I became more mature," he said. Playing last summer with the Florida Pokers travel team played a big part in that maturity."I think he learned a lot last summer and he was really focused this year on his goal of playing in college," Menendez said. "I think those things helped him focus on understanding he had to be the steady influence on our team."Asked if there would be baseball beyond college for him, Abreu said, "I'll work hard and I guess we'll find out. There's a good possibility I could play in the minor leagues." Menendez agreed: "I think he can be a great college player with a chance in a few years to play professional baseball."Among Key West players of the past who played at Hillsborough are Devin Butler, Christian Twyman, Billy Wardlow and Patrick Freeman.Abreu is the first member of this year's team to sign with a college. "We are working on the other seniors," Menendez said. "We have some schools showing interest in some of the other guys, but nothing firm yet."Baseball star hopes to play professionallyBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST SPORTSBaseball all-stars suiting upLITTLE LEAGUEHendrick gets 200th victoryRick Hendrick never saw his first victory as a car owner in NASCAR. Instead of going to Martinsville, Va., to see his new team with driver Geoff Bodine, he and wife Linda went to church.In 1984 there were no cell phones, so it wasn't until after the Hendricks got home and heard from his mother Mary Hendrick that Bodine drove the No. 5 All-Star Racing Chevrolet to Victory Lane earlier in the day.They celebrated by toiletpapering Bodine's yard."Driving in that driveway and seeing the decorations was a lot of fun," Bodine said. "We had a big laugh about that, and I think it was more of an impact than if we had been able to call them on the cell phone and tell them we won."Although he was late arriving, Hendrick was around for victory No. 200 on May 13 at the Darlington (N.C.) Raceway when Jimmie Johnson won the Southern 500. In between those milestone wins were 10 championships, a lot of thrills and unthinkable pain. "When something like this happens, it reminds me of when I won the first championship," Hendrick said. "I never thought I would win one." Over the past 29 years, 15 different drivers have contributed to the organization's 200 wins. Jeff Gordon (85 wins) and Jimmie Johnson (56) did the bulk of the work, but everyone involved, past and present, felt personally connected to the wins count. "Rick is that guy that doesn't like to finish second, and he'll do whatever takes to be No. 1, and that never stops," Gordon said. "He is always driving that passion to everyone around him that let's keep it going.'" Hendrick built his financial empire with more than 100 car dealerships around the country, but racing is his passion. He operates four teams with marquee drivers Gordon, Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kasey Kahne. There have been no shortcuts. He surrounds himself with quality people and he gives them the freedom to do their job. Gordon won Hendrick his first championship in 1995. Terry Labonte followed with a title in 1996, then Gordon came back to win in 1997, 1998 and 2001. Johnson had a run of five consecutive championships starting in 2006. There was heartache, too. AHendrick-owned airplane crashed flying to Martinsville in 2004, killing the car owner's son Ricky, brother John, two nieces and six others. Hendrick himself survived a plane crash last year in Key West, where he has a house on Sunset Key.Team owner has a home on Sunset KeyMcClatchy-TribuneNASCARThe Upper Keys Athletic Association's Little League begins postseason play with three in-house all-star games Monday and Tuesday.All three games, featuring top age-group players not tapped for district tournament rosters, begin at 6 p.m. at the Key Largo Community Park.Weather permitting, the Rookie League stars (age 7-8) play Monday.

Can you explain? Mildred Eastover, Bath, Maine Rachel Carson's seminal 1962 book, "Silent Spring," told the real-life story of how bird populations across the country were suffering as a result of the widespread application of the synthetic pesticide DDT (dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane), which was being used widely to control mosquitoes and others insects. Carson reported that birds ingesting DDTtended to lay thin-shelled eggs, which would in turn break prematurely in the nest, resulting in marked population declines. The problem drove bald eagles, our national symbol, not to mention peregrine falcons and other bird populations, to the brink of extinction, with populations plummeting more than 80 percent. Luckily for the birds, "Silent Spring" caused a stir, and many credit it with launching the modern environmental movement. Indeed, one of the world's leading environmental nonprofits, the Environmental Defense Fund, formed in 1967 in reaction to the DDTproblem. The group's first order of business included filing lawsuits in New York, Michigan, Wisconsin and Washington, D.C., to force a ban on DDT. EDF enlisted the help of dozens of scient--ific experts ornithologists, ecologists, toxicologists, carcinogenesis experts, and insect control specialists to testify at multimonth hearings to prove its point in regard to the dangers of DDT. In 1972, environmentalists'prayers were answered and their hard work vindicated with the federal government finally banning DDT. But with lots of the pesticide already dispersed through ecosystems far and wide, not to mention myriad other threats to bird habitats and the environment in general, no one could be sure whether populations of eagles, falcons and other predatory and fisheating birds would come back from the brink. While the federal Endangered Species Act went a long way to protect these atrisk species and some of their habitat, nonprofits also played a key role in helping specific species recover. To wit, the Peregrine Fund was founded in 1970 by a leading Cornell ornithologist to help nurse peregrine falcon populations hit hard by DDTback to their once abundant numbers. Researchers with the group pioneered methods of breeding peregrines in captivity and releasing them into the wild; such techniques have since been adopted widely by biologists trying to bring other wildlife species back from the brink of extinction. Thanks to a combination of factors and the hard work of bird lovers and scientists, peregrine falcons are once again common across the U.S., graduating off the national endangered species list as of 1999. The bald eagle's recovery is perhaps the best-known example of how our environmental laws worked to restore not just a resource but our very national symbol. In the mid-1960s, fewer than 500 nesting pairs of bald eagles existed in the continental U.S.; today, thanks to the DDTban and other conservation efforts, some 10,000 pairs of bald eagles inhabit the Lower 48 that's a 20-fold population increase in just four decades. In 2007 the federal government removed the bald eagle from the Endangered Species List. Without the 1972 ban on DDTand ensuing protections, the bald eagle, let alone dozens of other bird species, would likely be gone now in the continental U.S. EarthTalk is written and edited by Roddy Scheer and Doug Moss and is a registered trademark of E-The Environmental Magazine.

If it smells foul enough, a dog will do one of two things: Eat it or roll in it. And if they eat something toxic, the medical bill can be a killer on your wallet. According to the American Pet Products Association, Americans spent $13.4 billion on veterinary care for their pets in 2011. Pet supplies and overthe-counter medications accounted for an additional $11.77 billion. Providers of pet insurance have grown tenfold the past decade, but only about 1 percent of Americans purchase it for pet emergencies, said Dr. Jules Benson of Philadelphia, vice president of Petplan Pet Insurance. "In the United Kingdom, 28 percent of pet owners insure their pets," he said. The APPAestimates the average pet owner spent $650 on vet bills in 2011. But it takes only one major illness or accident to spend double or triple that amount to keep an animal healthy. Benson suggests pet owners who are considering insuring their pets compare plans. Average pet insurance premiums run about $400 a year. You can expect premiums to be higher for animals that traditionally are more prone to some diseases. While many companies won't insure diseases that are common in some breeds, it should still be available if the animal has not been diagnosed with certain ailments such as cancer in retrievers, hip dysplasia in large breeds or disc problems in dachshunds.

The Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center will screen the film at 7 p.m. Friday, June 8. Its free and open to the public. The Ocean Frontiers documentary includes interviews with Florida Keys commercial and recreational anglers, and highlights how marine conservation issues are being addressed through partnerships with fishing communities across the country. Florida Keys EcoDiscovery Center is located at 33 East Quay Road, on the Truman Waterfront in Key West. For more information, call the movie line at 305-809-4755. On July 19th 2010, President Obama established this countrys first National Ocean Policy, which promised to protect, maintain and restore ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes natural resources for present and future generations. The National Ocean Policy was formed through a year-long process that included stakeholders from commercial and recreational fishing, shipping and ports, energy developers, conservationists, scientists, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Homeland Security and other ocean users with diverse interests. The stories in Ocean Frontiers help audiences understand key principles of ecosystem-based management and coastal and marine spatial planning, according to the producers Karen and Ralf Meyer. These complex concepts come to life and are easy to grasp through the stories and people featured in Ocean Frontiers. The producers note a wide range of interests are represented in the documentary, including industrial shippers, whale biologists, pig farmers and wetland ecologists. They interviewed sport and commercial fishermen, reef snorkelers and many more stakeholders all embarking on a new course of cooperation, in defense of the seas that sustain us. Ocean Frontiers shows unlikely allies coming together and crafting solutions for the good of ecosystems and industry, the Meyers said, while not sugarcoating the conflicts or the sometimes-difficult road to the end result. The film shows the groups as true partners in the process.

Starting Wednesday, June 6, Tropic will screen films on three consecutive nights that had limited or no theatrical exposure in South Florida. The Cockettes,directed by David Weissman, captured the gender-bending hippie theatrical troupe that performed midnight drag musicals at San Franciscos Palace Theatre in the late 1960s and early 70s. Productions like Pearls Over Shanghai were known for their operetta-like staging and flamboyant narratives. Derrick Traylor, director of education for AIDS Help, said it was difficult for Weissman to locate survivors. Many were lost to drugs, many more to AIDS. Even an early collaborator died during pre-production. The 2002 movie celebrates idealism and counterculture, yet also shows the toll the rebelliousness took. On Thursday, June 7, the Tropic screens We Were Here, a new documentary also by Weissman that focuses on five individuals, all of whom lived in San Francisco preAIDS. Blending archival footage with new interviews, the retrospective illuminates the unimaginable emotional toll, the political complexities of a sexuallytransmitted plague and the role of women notably lesbians of caring for a community being ravaged by AIDS, AIDS Help promoters note. That night, the audience can remain after the screening for a SKYPE question and answer videoconference with Weissman. San Francisco also plays a role in the final screening on Friday, June 8, the 2010 documentary The Adonis Factor. This Christopher Hines documentary, which first drew acclaim at a San Francisco LGBTfilm festival, both champions and casts a critical eye upon LGBTliberation.

The parade features walking groups, a 100-foot rainbow flag, lavishly decorated floats and other units.
