Rated PG, 94 minutes, playing nationwide. The fourth installment in the Ice Age series is from Blue Sky studios, the same company that produced the three previous Ice Age films, as well as last years Rio. Its not the best of the series, nor is it the worst. The first movie in the sequence, Ice Age from 2002, was terrific, with an inspired script, clever sight gags and stunning visuals. The second film, Meltdown from 2006, was not quite up to par, but brought some romance to the script, fewer sight gags and the same beautiful graphics. Then came 2009s Dawn of the Dinosaurs, the weakest film in the franchise, whose only two saving graces were the one-eyed, knife-wielding weasel named Buck and, once again, the wonderful animation. This fourth installment has a weak plot, very few clever adult-targeted oneliners and not enough sight gags. But to make up for that, the CGI is beautiful the art and animation in Ice Age 4 is absolutely breathtaking. The water and waves are especially lifelike and some of the ocean scenes could be footage taken from a National Geographic documentary. The basic plot of Ice Age 4 is that Scrat, in his never-ending quest for nuts, has accidentally triggered the breakup of earths giant landmass, separating friends and family. All this leads to dangerous high seas adventures with pirates and finally (spoiler alert!), a joyous family reunion. For some reason, the pirate theme seems a little out of place, but there are some funny lines and sight gags to go along with the weak plotline. And pirates do serve to add another element of danger to an otherwiseBut story is strictly for little kidsFILM WANOUSSee Festival,5BSee Wanous,5B Flat salariesDuring contract hearing, the Monroe County Commission rejects raises for firefighters.Story, 7A Election in the stretch runVoting in the Aug. 14 primary elections starts in just a week and a half, meaning the candidates for political office in Monroe County are in the stretch run of trying to convince voters to cast ballots for them. And that means voters need to find out all they can about the would-be elected officials and whether they believe they're the right fit for office. In today's Keynoter you'll find profiles of the candidates for the Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board in District 1, the Monroe County School Board in District 3 and the clerk of the courts. In the next two editions, you can find out all about the candidates for Mosquito Control Board District 2, School Board District 2, state attorney, sheriff, state Senate District 39 and state House District 120. Early voting starts on July 30 and runs every day except Sundays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.until Aug.11 at the Big Pine Key and Islamorada libraries, and the Supervisor of Elections offices in Key Largo, Marathon and Key West. No matter your political party, all registered voters can vote in the School Board races since they're nonpartisan. Already, more than 700 people have voted via absentee ballot (9,203 voters requested them; they must be returned by 7 p.m. Aug. 14). If you've requested one and haven't gotten it, call the county elections office. Monroe County has 48,615 registered voters. Of those, 18,448 are Republicans, 16,499 are Democrats and the rest are either members of other parties or nonaffiliated.Early voting starts on July 30, thousands of absentee ballots outKeynoter StaffELECTION 2012 ONE IN,ONE OUT Photo by DAVID GOODHUE (top),KEVIN WADLOW (bottom)Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation researcher John Cassady (top) holds a baby manatee two to three weeks old that was found last week in the basin behind the Murray E.Nelson Government and Cultural Center in Key Largo.The calf was likely separated from its mother and was taken to the Miami Seaquarium,where it will probably spend the next three to four years growing up before being released back into the wild.Meanwhile (above),rescuers prepare to return Jasmine,a 900-pound manatee,to Florida Bay Tuesday near the same Tavernier spot where she was rescued March 16.The young female,recovered from serious propeller injuries while being treated at the Seaquarium.Keys lead the state in boating accidentsMonroe County again held the dubious position atop the state's roll of most dangerous counties for boating, with 93 significant accidents on the water in 2011. That represents a 20 percent surge over the 77 "reportable" boat accidents locally in 2010, according to an annual report by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Boating accidents jumped in 2011 both statewide and in the Keys even as the number of registered boats dropped. The Keys saw six boating deaths and 66 injuries in 2011. Monroe County's fatality toll includes three powerboat racers killed in two crashes during a Key West race in November. Two fishermen were killed in August when a flats boat crashed into a utility pole at the Card Sound Bridge. Overall, Florida marine officers statewide logged 742 reportable accidents and 67 deaths. Miami-Dade County was second on the most-accidents list with 75 maritime mishaps that caused a total $16 million in damages. Keys crashes and sinkings caused $1.2 million in total damages. To be considered "reportable," nautical accidents counted in the reportIslands saw six deaths in year 2011ON THE WATERSuperintendent incentives split some board membersThe Monroe County School Board on Monday is expected to decide whether to extend generous incentive pay to incoming Superintendent Mark Porter and, if so, what measures will trigger the performance pay. Porter, the former superintendent of South Washington County (Minn.) Public Schools, was selected in June to replace Jesus Jara, who starts Aug. 1 as deputy superintendent of Orange County Public Schools in Central Florida. Under the draft contract, Porter would earn a base salary of $145,000 annually plus benefits, a $625 monthly auto allowance and $1,000 each year "the superintendent will have available to expend for civic and community activities." On performance pay, the contract says an annual board review will rate Porter as highly effective, effective, needs improvement or ineffective. If judged highly effective, Porter would receive a 12.5 percent bonus; it would be 6.25 percent if rated effective. The corresponding cash values are $18,125 and $9,063. Board Chairman John Dick says he sees it as a problem if the board incentivizes Porter while still litigating a two-yearold contract with the United Teachers of Monroe that in part hinges on the board reversing performance pay for teachers. "To me," Dick says, "we can't pay anybody a bonus if we don't pay the teachers a bonus. That's in their contract. If you don't have the money for the teachers, you can't pay anybody."Porter would get thousands for performanceMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSAirport frustration escalatesWhat was intended as a discussion about private management of Florida Keys Marathon Airport Wednesday turned into a frank debate about the future and viability of commercial air service at the airfield. The general consensus: The airport doesn't have enough community support to attract an airline, especially due to Marathon's unwillingness to subsidize service. "If there was a market right now to stand alone, there would be air service in Marathon. There is not right now. It could be developed, but it's going to be expensive to do so," Airports Director Peter Horton said.

Heavilin leads clerk fundraisingThe five candidates vying to be the next Monroe County clerk of the court have raised or self-funded a combined $55,952 and spent $40,672 for the reporting period ending on July 31. The partisan Aug. 14 primary puts four Republicans against one another; the winner, if one gets more than 50 percent of the vote, or top two vote getters will face Democrat Joe Allen in the Nov. 6 general election. Amy Heavilin, the Sheriff's Office director of finance, has a commanding lead, raising $23,382 and spending $14,395 and garnering another $3,480 in in-kind contributions from more than 50 Florida Keys residents and business. Second is Kevin Madok, the clerk's assistant finance director. He's taken in $16,638 and spent $12,663 with $1,558 of in-kind contributions. Donors include Florida Keys Community College board members Anne O'Bannon and Bobby Stoky plus more than $7,000 of Madok's own money. Matt Gardi, information technology director for the State Attorney's Office and a former state House candidate, has raised $8,497, including more than $1,500 of his own money, and spent $6,548. Allen, the lone Democrat and a retired teacher, has self-funded all of his campaign, raising $6,610 and spending $6,349.

Dennis Ward, finishing a four-year term as the incumbent, holds an edge over challenger Catherine Vogel, a former chief assistant prosecutor in the office. Ward reported $60,300 in monetary donations as of the most recent financial filings posted July 13 by the Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Office. Ward also has reported receiving $3,250 in in-kind services since he started fund-raising in October. Vogel has collected $39,854 in monetary donations since July 2011, including a $5,000 personal loan to the campaign. She also has received $4,366 in in-kind services. Vogel raised nearly $22,000 in cash in January through March, and $9,000 in the most recent months. She also reported $3,170 of in-kind services in the most recent filing. So far, Vogel reported spending $33,254 on the party challenge. Ward received $25,325 in the most recent filing period after receiving $17,345 from January to April. He has reported spending $47,119 on the campaign. The winner between Vogel and Ward will face former State Attorney Mark Kohl, a Republican, on Nov. 6. Kohl so far has reported a total of $1,300 in campaign donations. An Ocean Reef political group donated $500 of that.Incumbent faces Vogel in primaryELECTION 2012years. Delta bailed out of Marathon-Atlanta service after just five months in 2007. Cape Air flew a ninepassenger Continental Connection to Fort Myers in 2009, then pulled out. The Massachusetts-based airline received a $250,000 subsidy from the county in 2009, but was turned down for $165,000 the following year. As Horton pointed out, that was largely due to the Marathon City Council refusing, by a 3-2 vote, to pay $17,000 of that subsidy. The County Commission was prepared to commit $40,000. The discussion began after Mayor David Rice requested to pull from the agenda approval for a request for proposals for a private management firm for the airport. Longtime Manager Reggie Paros retired in June and the county has floated the idea of outsourcing the service. Rice said he was unhappy with the document because it includes requirements for $100 million worth of liability insurance and restrictions on potential revenue sources. "Anybody stupid enough to respond to this we definitely wouldn't want to hire as it's set up now," he said. "I don't believe anyone will respond to it in its current form." The commission was set to move on, but Commissioner Kim Wigington questioned comments made about the airport by Marathon Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay during the July 10 Marathon City Council meeting. The council was responding to the county's inquiry about whether the city intended to respond to the RFPto manage the airport. "Some of it was entertaining about how we didn't know Marathon existed. I didn't understand it," Wigington said. The commission did laud the airport as a self-sustaining general aviation airport. Horton said it averages $756,000 per year in revenue. "There were $721,000 in costs in 2011. You have about $35,000 in profit; it's a breakeven situation, but it doesn't cost us anything to run the airport," he said. Only Commissioner George Neugent defended the possibility of commercial service in Marathon, saying the county, which owns the airport, hasn't done well to attract carriers. He asked Horton what's happened since American Eagle, the last carrier to stick around any length of time, pulled out in 2000. Horton said American Eagle was averaging 40,000 passengers per year and paying for a separate crew in Marathon. "That airline left to consolidate the operation and make more money by carrying the passengers in Key West," he said. Horton was adamant the county has done all it could over the years to bring commercial service to the Middle Keys, but not even revenue guarantees have sustained it. Delta left $500,000 on the table when it left. "All I hear is, I want, I want, I want.'You have to support the service or it's not going to work," Wigington said. Rice had his own answers for why commercial service doesn't work in Marathon. Chief among them was the size of the plane airlines fly. "It's viable if there's a 19passenger plane. The problem is almost none of the companies fly those planes. They've all gone to 40-passenger jets," he said. Horton said he's had preliminary talks with Fort Lauderdale-based Silver Airways, a regional carrier launched in 2011. It flies 19passenger Beechcraft 1900D and 34-passenger Saab 340B planes in Florida, the Bahamas, Montana and several northeast U.S. states.Rice: Issue is planesFrom Airport,1ABy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com

Golden D.M.D. COSMETICANDRESTORATIVEDENTISTRYOFTHEKEYS Focus is on budget in bug-board raceFor the first time in 20 years, someone other than Democrat Joan Lord-Papy will be elected to the District 1 seat on the Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board. The five-term incumbent declined to seek re-election and three candidates filed to take her place. Two of them, Republicans Jill CranneyGage and Maggie Gutierrez, face off in the Aug. 14 primary. As in 2010, the Mosquito Control budget is a main campaign issue. Many have criticized the district for having a bloated budget in the past, and in recent years rapidly eating into cash reserves. The proposed budget for 2012-13 is $13.7 million with $4 million in reserves (of that, around $1.55 million would go to operating expenses). "Mosquito Control should keep moving forward with technology and continue on the three-year plan to eliminate deficit spending without raising taxes," said Gutierrez, a lawyer. She added that many voters have said their "main issue is killing mosquitoes in a costefficient manner." "We need to continue to shift to new, safe, cost-efficient technologies such as larvicide and away from the traditional adulticide/pesticide treatments," she said. Cranney-Gage says her experience with the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority, where she is senior accountant, would be important to the board. "I have a strong financial background and am very knowledgeable with the budget process, and believe I would make a valuable asset," she said. Both Gutierrez and Cranney-Gage are first-time political candidates and said they've been traveling to numerous events and forums up and down the Keys. "The campaign has been a life-changing experience. I always knew the Keys were a special place but now I have an even greater appreciation for Monroe County," Gutierrez said. "I have been able to reach out to different areas in the community and really see what our residents and taxpayers want to see improved and changed," Cranney-Gage said. The Republican primary winner will take on Green Party candidate Oliver Kofoid in the Nov. 6 general election. Mosquito Control terms are four years.Cranney-Gage and Gutierrez in GOP primaryMOSQUITO CONTROL DISTRICT 1By RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com UTM President Holly Hummell-Gorman said "performance pay is the trend. So performance pay should be expected for all." She added, "The School Board's track record for delivering what they promise is suspect. Teachers should get their performance pay before another promise is made." Board member Robin Smith-Martin led the contract negotiation with Porter and will present the draft when the board meets on Monday beginning at 10 a.m. in the Key West administrative offices on Trumbo Road. Smith-Martin says he thinks the dollar figures are sound and, when put side by side with rolling out performance pay for teachers, the associated costs are "so vast" they don't compare. "If he is able to basically create added value for the district that's well in excess of these bonus amounts, that should be welcomed. It's going to be the board's responsibilities to sit down and identify what are our priorities, attach some metrics to those and a timeline and give the new superintendent some marching orders." As potential ways of measuring Porter's performance, Smith-Martin suggests measures like setting a goal for the district in state student performance rankings Monroe is now eighth out of 67 statewide or sticking to less than half a percent of deviation from projected annual expenses. "The way I look at it is comparing marginal costs to marginal benefits. If it costs us an extra $9,000 to achieve our goals, many of which haven't even been organized and put together under the last two superintendents ... if this gentlemen is able to organize those goals and then hit those goals, how much is that worth?" "If we're able to be in the top three or five districts in the state, is that worth $9,000? Absolutely."Smith-Martin says value worth payoutFrom Contract,1AJill Cranney-Gage Party:Republican.Age:30.Occupation:Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority senior accountant,Lower Florida Keys Hospital District administrator.Family:Married,three children.Education:Master's in business administration from Kaplan University.Residence:Key Haven,in Keys 23 years.

Wide open race forboard seatWith two-term incumbent Duncan Mathewson stepping aside, the chance at taking over his District 3 Monroe County School Board seat has drawn six candidates, none of whom have held an elected office in the Florida Keys. Over a series of interviews and public debates, the candidates for the four-year term have centered on re-ordering the School District's financial house, along with restoring teacher morale and public confidence, as the major tasks facing the board. Five of the six are on the Aug. 14 primary ballot, and voting is open to all registered voters since School Board elections are nonpartisan. Candidate Michael Cunningham, whose two children attend Poinciana Elementary School in Key West, articulated a number of concerns with the School District. "The biggest issue for the district is the fact that we have problems in multiple areas that are all of equal importance and priority. They range from the need of a financial management system, financial planning and budgeting, improvement of our educational system ... teacher and staff morale, lack of vision and leadership as well as re-establishing trust in the board." He says step one is "to start with financial, operational and strategic planning so that we can address each area of concern with concrete systemic changes." Marathon resident Ed Davidson, a longtime schools watcher who says he's attended more than 200 board and Audit and Finance Committee meetings, sees a return to school-based management as his goal if elected. He also, as have all the candidates, says often-contentious negotiations with the United Teachers of Monroe union need to stop. "My first reform priority as a new board member," Davidson says, "will be to help the new superintendent make peace with our many dedicated teachers, and get back to collaborative and cooperative bargaining in these challenging times." Larry Murray, whom Mathewson last year declined to reappointed to the Audit and Finance Committee after much infighting between Murray and then-Chief Internal Auditor Ken Gentile, has a six-point financial plan he would present if elected. It includes moving district offices to Marathon and an overhaul of the non-academic salary structure. "The heart of my plan is twofold: Zero-based budgeting accompanied by a one-, threeand five-year planning program. Combined the two things would provide the basis for intelligent financial decision-making. I believe there are few other people who know more than I about district finances." Mark Peterson says the current board "doesn't understand business" and that his background as a municipal lawyer would serve him well in guiding the district out of the "budget crisis." "Our schools cannot afford to lose 40 teachers'positions, and this is not the time to be cutting so that we can build up the reserve account. Had this board exercised sound judgment in the first place, the reserve account balance would not now be so low." He says he'd fire hired labor attorney Robert Norton and "have the board negotiate directly with the teachers union," and would stop the "giveaway" of Glynn Archer Elementary School to the city of Key West, sell it, use the proceeds to buy housing and cars, "and offer this property for use by teachers who agree to take a salary cut equal to the fair market value [for] the free use of this property." John Welsh, with 35 years working for the schools system, including as principal of Key West High School, says community outreach is key to restoring public confidence integrity in the School District. "I believe that the district needs to make a conscious effort to improve the district communication and openness. This can be accomplished with a promise to listen to all stakeholders. The district must collaborate and compromise in the decision making process. Restoring integrity will not happen by accident, it has to be planned and the plan has to be carried out." Perennial candidate Sloan Bashinsky's name won't be on the Aug.14 ballot even though he's a write-in candidate. His name also won't appear on the Nov. 6 ballot; a line allowing voters to write in his name will. If one person wins more than 50 percent of the vote on Aug. 14, he will face Bashinsky in November. If no one wins more than 50 percent, the top two vote getters will move on to Nov. 6, along with Bashinsky.

Other counties with high accident numbers were Palm Beach (58), Broward (41), Lee (41), Pinellas (36) and Collier (34). Hillsborough reported 20 significant boating accidents but a state-high seven deaths. Broward matched Monroe County's six boating deaths. Falling overboard was the most common fatal boating accident. Drowning was ruled as the cause of death in twothirds of the fatalities. Of the 67 deaths, 62 were men. Florida boaters statewide endured fewer reportable crashes in 2010 with 668, but there were 79 deaths that year. Florida's boat registrations continued to decline from more than 1 million in 2005 to 2008 to 922,491 in 2011. "Up to 1 million nonregistered boats actively use Florida's waters," says the FWC accident report, "and this segment of the boating population appears to still be growing." Boats not requiring registration are those less than 16 feet and not powered by engines. Other facts from the 2011 Florida boating-accident report: Of the 742 accidents involving 1,018 vessels, boats hit other boats or stationary objects in 313 cases. Careless operation was the most common accident trigger, cited in 156 incidents. Next were mechanical failure, operator inattention, operator inexperience, bad weather and speeding.Keys again tops in boat crashesFrom Boating,1A

If one candidate gets more than 50 percent of the vote, he or she will face Democrat Joe Allen in the Nov. 6 general election; if no one gets more than 50 percent, the top two vote getters will face Allen, who has unsuccessfully run for several local and state seats. Kolhage has endorsed candidate Kevin Madok, his assistant finance director. Madok has emphasized his ability to guide a smooth transition and implement statemandated electronic filing processes, a goal that has received much attention from all the candidates. "The high priority is a smooth transition from one clerk to the next," Madok says. "The patient isn't ill so we don't have to go in for major surgery, but it's not a static operation, either." He acknowledged the need to modernize filing, and added, "One of my primary goals concurrent with that process is also to see that the public's experience with the clerk's office ... is as userfriendly as possible. Technology is a tool to that end but technology will not create that end." Matt Gardi, a former candidate for the state House, says he will draw on his strong tech background to make needed changes while pushing for heightened transparency and financial accountability. "Maintaining records and financial accountability are the twofold greatest area of responsibility of the clerk's office," he said. "The public needs easy access to these records, and all financial aspects of the county need to be transparent to the public." "I have been in technology and have a proven track record of implementing technology to create improvements, save money, and provide better service to staff and the public," Gardi said. "Also, as a columnist [for a Key West weekly newspaper and his blog], I have been a fiscal watchdog and critic of government, and can bring that independent perspective to the role of clerk." Retired attorney Stuart Kessler says he will strive for independent oversight if elected, as he has done in his tenure as chairman of the Monroe County School District's Audit and Finance Committee. "It is the critical position for government oversight," Kessler says of the job. "It allows me to continue my lifelong fight for good government." Stressing the need for independence, Kessler points out that his three opponents all work in different county departments "that the clerk has to oversee and audit. As you know, auditing your past work is a conflict." That point has also been made by Gardi in recent weeks, particularly as it relates to Madok and Amy Heavilin. Madok says he has "no intentions" of responding to Gardi. Heavilin, director of the Monroe County Sheriff's Office Finance Division, says "accountability is of utmost importance" to the next clerk and, if elected, the office "will continue moving forward with the expectation of integrity, honesty and transparency." Heavilin says she would undertake the technology upgrades, evaluate operations to look for more efficiency and reach out to students for a potentially credit-earning intern program. "I'd like to make the operations better, faster and more cost effective," she said. "I am a visionary with an openmind and ability to see the big picture to effect those changes while still pledging that any new policies and procedures are only instituted in a manner that will positively impact the citizens of the County." The four-year job pays $105,828 annually. Kolhage has been the county clerk since 1983, when then-Gov. Bob Graham appointed him to replace Ralph White, who resigned. At the time, Kolhage was the assistant clerk. He has been re-elected to four-year terms since then, but is retiring from that post and was elected without opposition to the County Commission in District 1. He is sworn in Nov. 13, meaning he'll likely have to step down early because his clerk term doesn't end until January.4 Republicans square off in Aug.14 primaryCLERK OF COURTSBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMatt GardiParty:Republican.Age:47.Occupation:Information systems director for the Monroe County State Attorney's Office.Family:Married.Education:Graduate of Champlain College in Burlington,Vt.Residence:Sugarloaf Key,lived in the Keys since 2003.Reason for running:"As the technology director of the State Attorney's Office,I have been working at the largest customer of the clerk's office and can clearly see some of the greatest areas for improvement.Most have to do with leveraging technology,but transparency and service to the public are essential,as well."

TIF funding cycle starts anewPublic and private groups have until Sept. 28 to apply for some $850,000 in Key West property tax revenue that is set aside annually for capital projects in the Bahama Village neighborhood of Old Town. The money is generated through what's called a tax increment fund; in 1996 a large chunk of Bahama Village and non-contiguously the Caroline Street Corridor were established as community redevelopment areas. Any growth in property tax revenue above the 1996 level is diverted into the TIF. Assistant City Manager Mark Finigan says this year, the TIF estimate for the Bahama Village redevelopment area is around $850,000; that's up from $579,000 that was available for allocation last year. Applications are available on the city's website at www.keywestcity.com under the Planning Department page or at City Hall in Habana Plaza on Flagler Avenue. Planner Nicole Malo, available at 809-3778, can answer questions about the process. This is the fourth year of a public TIF funding process; projects previously funded include renovations to the Bethel AME Zion Church, the Masonic Lodge and Cornish Memorial AME Zion Church.

The commission voted a g ainst raises over the life of a proposed three-year deal with the union, and even voted to revoke an existin g 7 percent pay increase g iven to three employees permanently assi g ned to TraumaStar, the county-owned air ambulance helicopter. The votes were part of a hearin g before the commission to discuss five clauses of 269 total union attorney Mark Floyd and Assistant County Attorney Cynthia Hall could not resolve. Aspecial ma g istrate helped reduce the number from 16 to five, but state statutes require a hearin g before the commission if one or both parties don't a g ree on any rulin g Hall said the union's last collective bar g ainin g a g reement ended Sept. 30, 2011, the last day of the previous fiscal year. The union will now hold a ratification vote. If it fails, Hall said the a g reement includin g the commissioners' rulin g s becomes a contract coverin g the current fiscal year only that ends Sept. 30. "It is the county's stron g desire to reach a lon g -term collective bar g ainin g a g reement with its membership as quickly as possible so we can g et back to doin g the business of Monroe Count Fire Rescue. In addition, I think the views of the commissioners [Wednesday] were crystal clear and both sides should take that into consideration," Hall said. The county recommended no pay raises while the union ar g ued for "step increases" in year two and three of the deal. They would have amounted to $680,000 and around 80 percent of the membership would have been eli g ible. Hall said the county has an 11-step pay increase model in place but each step must be approved durin g contract ne g otiations. Rou g hly 20 percent of employees have already reached their limit. "Our position would stillbe that in order to equalize [pay increases] firefi g hters have received in the past, it would be fair not to g ive any increases durin g the threeyear a g reement," she told the commission. The other main issue was the 7 percent hi g her salary paid to three fli g ht medics permanently assi g ned to TraumaStar at Florida Keys Marathon Airport. Hall recommended keepin g that system in place, while the union wanted the other six "fli g ht-qualified firefi g hters" in the county to receive that 7 percent while assi g ned to TraumaStar. All receive an additional 5 percent increase for holdin g the certification. But the commission questioned why any employees would receive the extra 7 percent, especially since the helicopter makes infrequent fli g hts and is sometimes out of service for prolon g ed periods. Commissioner Heather Carruthers'motion to do away with the 7 percent rule was approve, 4-1, with Mayor David Rice dissentin g Rice said he wanted the 7 percent to remain for permanently assi g ned medics. The commission voted unanimously on other clauses: An annual leave clause dealin g with forms submitted when Fire Rescue employees put in for vacation time. The union wanted to use a particular "standard operatin g procedure" form all the time, but Hall said they chan g e often and the county wanted flexibility. A"union pool hours" clause, which Hall said are "hours a g reed on that the union leadership can use for such thin g s as collective barg ainin g sessions, attendin g union conferences or meetin g with their attorney." "In the past Monroe County has contributed 100 percent of the union pool hours. The county has footed the bill for an avera g e of 320 hours per year," Hall said.The commission approved a clause whereby the county will donate 120 hours per year and the union will ask its members each to donate three hours of vacation time.Contract now to union for ratificationMONROE COUNTYBy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comFirefi g hters face firin gThree mid-level officers with Monroe County Fire Rescue assi g ned to Key West International Airport face possible termination after an inspection earlier this summer showed one of the trucks was not filled with foam used to put out airplane fires. But the department's union president says the move is another example of selective discipline bein g meted out by the fire chief, James Callahan, and his battalion chiefs. Union President John Hambur g er, a former lieutenant in the department who was fired for what Callahan called insubordination last December, said the three captains should be disciplined, not fired, for lettin g the foam truck run dry. He said far worse violations have occurred with no consequences for certain members of the department. "Should there be some type of disciplinary action taken? Yes," Hambur g er said. "Have there been other safety violations that put people's lives at risk but were overlooked? Yes." Hambur g er also questions why Dale Beaver, the battalion chief in char g e of fire-rescue operations at the airport, does not appear to be facin g any discipline even thou g h the truck was not filled under his watch. "He's there 40 hours a week, from 8 to 5 Monday throu g h Friday," Hambur g er said. "At some point, he should be takin g some type of heat. This should g o all the way up to the one who is fully in char g e." The three captains, Eric Sellers, Omar Fernandez and Richard Coletta, went before what is known as a predetermination hearin g on Monday. The results of that hearin g are demotion, suspension, wa g es lost or termination. But g iven the department's record of firin g firefi g hters in the past two to three years, Hambur g er said he's not optimistic the three men will keep their jobs. Hambur g er estimates six firefi g hters, includin g himself, unfairly lost their jobs followin g predetermination hearin g s since Callahan took over the department in 2009. "I don't remember anyone bein g fired before two to three years a g o," said Hambur g er, 30, who was with the department for six years. Callahan acknowled ged that three captains were put before a predetermination hearin g but would not comment further.

CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALEvergladeswork equals jobsLETTERS TO THE EDITORRest area neededRecently I had the pleasure (not) of witnessing an individual relieving himself on the side of the road. This is at the horseshoe-shaped rest area at mile marker 55.5 on Grassy Key. I have nicknamed this Potty Park. This is not the only time I have seen this. It happens daily with visitors coming to the Keys. There is also a state-designated trail that goes back into the wooded mangrove area. It has become a relief station for many a traveler. If Marathon wants to tout itself as being clean and beautiful, then it needs to get a grip on this area. It needs to provide a couple of port-a-potties, recycled picnic tables and trash barrels. These could be maintained by our county jail inmates or state inmates. This would be a great project for a community service organization. One could "adopt" the wayside area and brighten it up a bit with community donations of plant cuttings and flowers. I can't see it costing much since the grassy areas are already maintained by inmates. At mile marker 81, across from the Outback Steakhouse, there are big shady trees, picnic tables, and barrels at a wayside park area. It is really a great place to stop and rest before traveling another 50 miles to Key West. If we want to encourage visitors to come down to the Keys, then the city of Marathon needs to provide a comfortable rest area. Besides, isn't it illegal to dump in the Florida Keys?

Let me join Ed Swift in commemorating Margo Golan. If it wasn't for people like Margo and others like her, Key West would have remained that unique city it was instead of the cesspool it is today. Basil Gianniotes Long KeyRaces are best everThe fourth annual dragon boat races in Marathon this May were successful in many ways. This year saw more competitors from more places and attracted a record crowd of spectators. Heron-Peacock Supported Living, a local nonprofit providing housing and supportive services to mentally ill adults in Marathon and Key West, has successfully partnered with organizers to help raise funds for our organization since the event's inception. This year's event helped raise more than $9,000 to help support our mission. We would like to thank event organizers Karen Bowers and Mandy Bowers, team captains Tony Napoli and Katy Kennedy, and supporters Hurricane Bar & Grill, Kmart and Signs by Rene. We appreciate the pledges and donations received. In particular, we would like to recognize the Caldwell Banker Schmidt Charitable Foundation, Melissa Grady of Centennial Bank, Reece & White Land Surveying and Dave Condra for their generous support. It was a wonderful day of fun and excitement for all who participated. Richard Casey Executive director Heron-Peacock Supported LivingVillage is a failureThe village of Islamorada was created on Jan. 1, 1998. I knew there would be a lot of mistakes in creating this new government from scratch by a bunch of well-meaning people. I vowed to not to pay attention for one year as they stumbled through the process. I am sad to report that it has been 14 years of constant repetition of one mistake after another. Almost every contract comes in never on schedule and always over budget, often resulting in lawsuits. We have had a pretty good turnover of elected officials who all made beautiful political promises. Only a few would I rate barely fair and most were terrible ill prepared and overwhelmed by the brainwashing of a professional bureaucratic staff (especially the law firm Weiss, Serota). They're intent on growing bigger and more expensive. Only one elected official would I rate good (no hidden agenda), and as she got upset with village government she resigned. It has been a dismal failure and a giant waste of taxpayer money but a windfall for a few businessmen to enable them to enlarge their business operation without any interference of local government.

The total budget would be $375.1 million and aims to raise $77.2 million in property taxes, down $927,714 from the current year's $78.1 million. The rest would come from fees, grants and the like. The county collected $82.2 million in 2010-11 and $85.3 million in 2009-10. "It's a happy budget," Gastesi told the County Commission. "It's below rollback again, the fourth consecutive year we've reduced property taxes." The preliminary proposed tax rate is 4.1402, or .1 percent below the rollback rate of 4.1443. Rollback is the tax rate necessary to generate the same tax dollars as the current year. The 4.1402 rate means homeowners would pay $4.1402 per $1,000 of assessed property value. For the owner of a $300,000 house that equals $1,242. But the proposed rate is an aggregate and would not apply to all county residents; some live in areas with special taxing districts. Gastesi had previously warned that some $5 million worth of "unfunded mandates" could make the budget tricky to deal with this year. But he told the commission it comfortably absorbs "Medicaid billing charges, changes to the [Florida Retirement System], requirements for [Americans with Disabilities Act] compliance and [U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Federal Emergency Management Agency] litigation and response expenses." The county is involved with a Florida Association of Counties lawsuit against the state Agency for Health Care Administration over backlogged disputed bills. The county administers the plan and is reimbursed by the state. In addition, a lawsuit is pending as to whether counties would have to pay back 3 percent employee contributions made to their retirement fund over the past two years. Gov. Rick Scott approved that measure. The Fish and Wildlife and FEMAlitigation has to do with a settlement the two agencies reached on a lawsuit involving endangeredspecies habitat. The county was saddled with the costly burden of distinguishing whether thousands of parcels contain such habitat and is exposed to land takings lawsuits. Gastesi pointed out the budget is funded using $5.8 million in cash reserves. He said it leaves the county with five months, or $20 million, of operating capital. Total reserves would drop from $36.5 million to $30.7 million. "We don't like to do that, but frankly, we have so much surplus budget balance we feel comfortable doing it," he said. "It still maintains five months operating reserve and the $10 million hurricane reserve."

Commissioners, drawing heavily on the advice of their staff attorney and planner, gave the OK to developer Pritam Singh to build a 96-room hotel think Truman Annex and the Parrot Key Hotel and Resort at the vacant former site of Jabour's Trailer Court; and approved a concept from Chris Schultz, part owner of The Porch beer and wine bar and 2-Cents restaurant, to open a microbrewery, bar and restaurant in the former Waterfront Market. Each item drew only one voice of opposition by way of one resident objecting to the density of the proposed hotel site, and another to the plan to have live music performed on the rooftop of the so-called Waterfront Brewery. Singh acquired the Jabour's property after a bank foreclosed on the failed Watermark condominium project. Tentative plans call for a heavily landscaped lot with a twostory hotel called Harborside.

Florida News Service Alineup of official meetings for Florida's governor this week provides some insight into priorities of our state government when it comes to the economy and jobs. On Wednesday, Gov. Rick Scott spent part of his day in the Orlando area helping cut the ribbon on a new convenience store called WaWa, part of a midAtlantic chain that sells gas and to-go food. He also stopped by an Orlando startup that outsources risk management services for the mortgage industry and chatted up the central Florida chambers of commerce. On the same day, U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar toured the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge by airboat and met with stakeholders on federal-state efforts to restore and preserve the Everglades. The Obama administration recently announced an $880 million agreement with Florida to boost Everglades restoration work. From where we sit, that will have far greater longterm impact on Florida's economic future. Think tourism, protecting vital water resources (which affects future growth and development) and helping preserve our commercial and recreational fishing and diving industries. Opening a new convenience store in Central Florida or outsourcing more mortgage business what is the impact on Florida jobs? Not much. Which brings up the larger issue where has Scott been on environmental protection and the Everglades? He's missed three other opportunities to appear with the Interior secretary, the vice president and the president on their Florida visits to promote Everglades restoration. If Scott were thinking long range, he'd recognize the environment is critical to this state's economic future. But, to date, we don't think the governor gets it. Does anyone really believe job creation comes from opening another outsourced mortgage processing company? And do tourists really want (or need) another convenience store chain coming to Florida? This week, the governor chose to invest his time sending the wrong economic message.

Centennial moving in IslamoradaCentennial Bank is doubling the size of its Islamorada branch with the acquisition of the former Bank of America building at mile marker 81.5 oceanside. Customers were notified of the impending move via letter earlier in July. This week, Centennial President Teresa Condas said the move has been long awaited to keep up with bank growth in the Upper Keys. "We've been hoping for some time to find the right building. We bought [the former Bank of America] building in late June and it will undergo some minor renovations before we open at the beginning of October," she said. Centennial will bring its drive-through ATM machines to the new location from its existing branch at 82787 Overseas Highway, which will close. "We will continue to have the only drive-thru ATM in Islamorada," Condas added. Centennial Bank was formerly Marine Bank, which got its start in Marathon. Marine merged with Home BancShares, an Arkansasbased bank holding company, in 2005. All of Home BancShares banks changed their name to Centennial Bank in 2008. Condas was formerly a consultant to Marine Bank, hired in 2000, and served in various management posts before being named president in April 2009. "When we look at market share, we're No. 2 in Islamorada," Condas said. "But we know there's a lot of potential in the Upper Keys. We've been looking to expand but in our current facilities, it's been difficult to expand." She said the larger footprint in the new location at 81541 Overseas Highway would allow Centennial to have a lender on site. Vicki Walker will head the Islamorada branch. The old branch will close on Oct. 6 at noon. Oct. 8 is Columbus Day and the Islamorada branch will be closed that day, but then open for business Oct. 9. Other Centennial Bank branches in the Keys will be open for business on Columbus Day, Condas said.It purchases former Bank of AmericaKeynoter StaffBANKING BusinessCentennial Bank's new Islamorada office will open on Oct.9.Space workers struggle yearafterlast shuttleAyear after NASAended the three-decade U.S. space shuttle program, thousands of formerly well-paid engineers and other workers around the Kennedy Space Center are still struggling to find jobs to replace the careers that flourished when shuttles blasted off from the Florida Space Coast. Some have headed to South Carolina to build airplanes in that state's growing industry, and others have moved as far as Afghanistan to work as government contractors. Some found lowerpaying jobs beneath their technical skills that allowed them to stay. Many are still looking for work and cutting back on things like driving and utilities to save money. "Nobody wants to hire the old guy," said Terry White, a 62-year-old former project manager who worked 33 years for the shuttle program until he was laid off after Atlantis landed last July 21. "There just isn't a lot of work around here. Or if so, the wages are really small." White earned more than $100,000 a year at the end of his career at the space center. The prospects of finding a job that pay anywhere near that along the Space Coast are slim. "I could take an $11-anhour job that is 40 miles away," he said "But with gas prices and all that, it's not really worthwhile." More than 7,400 people, who once had labored on one of history's most complicated engineering achievements, lost their jobs when the shuttle program ended last July. While other shuttle workers in Houston, New Orleans and Huntsville, Ala., lost jobs, those areas had bigger economies to absorb the workers. In less economically diverse Brevard County, the mainly contractor positions cut by NASAaccounted for just under 5 percent of the county's private-sector jobs. The Kennedy Space Center's current workforce of 8,500 workers is the smallest in more in than 35 years. In the middle of the last decade, the space center employed around 15,000 workers.Black hole'James Peek, a 48-year-old quality inspector for the shuttles, has applied for 50 positions with no success since he was laid off in October 2010. He has taken odd jobs glazing windows for a luxury hotel in Orlando and working as a security guard. He has no health insurance and incurred a $13,000 bill when he was hospitalized for three days last May. "With most companies, it's like your application goes into a black hole," Peek said. "We're struggling to stay afloat." Jobless space workers have signed up for Brevard Workforce's job placement and training services. Slightly more than half of the 5,700 workers the agency has been able to track have found jobs, but more than a quarter of those positions were outside Florida. Those jobs have been in the fields of engineering, mechanics and security. Brevard County's unemployment rate spiked in the months that the shuttle program wound down, going from 10.6 percent in April 2011 to 11.7 percent in August 2011. It has since declined to 9 percent, a result of a smaller workforce as many former shuttle workers either moved away or retired earlier than planned. Brevard County has added 2,700 jobs since the beginning of the year, but many are in the southern part of the 72-milelong county where information technology giant Harris Corp. and airplane-maker Embraer are located. Jobless space workers in the northern part of the county jokingly refer to those high-tech workers as "their rich cousins." Some local employers are finding that the former space workers'salary demands are sometimes too high. "Stop sending former Space Center employees," one employer wrote to Brevard Workforce, the local job agency, in a comment included in its monthly committee report. "They have an unrealistic salary expectation." Taxpayer money allocated for job training programs for displaced space shuttle workers also is dwindling a year after the program ended. Adding to the difficulties of finding a new job is the age of many of the former shuttle workers. Many spent their entire careers working on the space shuttles and are now in their 50s and 60s. In between sending out resumes and meeting at networking events, many of the space workers are volunteering at Kennedy Space Center, giving tours to dignitaries and providing oral histories to tourists who stop by the Vehicle Assembly Building. Even though many of the older space workers like White had years to plan for the end of the shuttle program, they stuck around, hoping to prepare the orbiters for displays in museums in Florida, Los Angeles and Washington after the program ended. They expected younger shuttle workers to move over to the successor Constellation program whose goal was to send astronauts to the moon and then Mars. But the cancellation of the Constellation program in 2010 increased the competition for those few jobs left prepping the shuttles.Hopes dashedSome shuttle workers, such as Kevin Harrington, had been holding out hope that the program announced after Constellation's demise a heavy-lift rocket system that would launch astronauts in an Orion space capsule would offer immediate widespread job opportunities. But the plans announced last year won't have unmanned test launches of the Space Launch System for another five years, and the first manned mission won't be for about another decade. Private-sector companies, such as Paypal founder Elon Musk's Space X, are starting unmanned launches from Kennedy Space Center, but their need for workers doesn't come close to what was required for the shuttle program. "We expected a little more action from our government, at least in figuring out what direction we're going to go in," said Harrington, 55, who worked on the shuttles'thermal protection system earning about $80,000 a year. "Ultimately, that would inform which direction we would go in. Alot of us thought, since we have such deep roots in the community, we could wait it out. It was hopeful at first. Now it isn't so hopeful. Things aren't moving fast." Many of the former space workers find camaraderie and job tips each Friday at the weekly breakfast of the Spacecoast Technical Network, a group created by former Kennedy Space Center workers.EMPLOYMENT MARKETPLACE RECENT REAL ESTATE SALESSALES vs. LAST YEAR: 104 percent Based on information from the Florida Keys Board of REALTORS, Inc.

Gaspeny lands 200th swordIt certainly was not a large swordfish that mate Hunter Barron dragged over the transom of the Catch 22 late July 11 off Islamorada.But its weight of about 70 pounds was not the priority to those involved in the landing.What counted was the incredible milestone achieved for a 63-year-old Florida Keys light-tackle guide and his close friends who worked together to pioneer fishing for swordfish, or broadbill as they also are known, in broad daylight.Vic Gaspeny reeled in his 200th swordfish. This is believed to be the most ever caught by a single angler on a sportfishing rod and manual reel. Although he did not realize it back then, Gaspeny's obsession with swordfish began June 22, 1978, when he caught his first swordfish off Islamorada at night. He caught a second later that year off Maryland, and then none for 23 years."Industrial fishing off the Straits of Florida during that time really depleted swordfish resources," Gaspeny said. "But they (the U.S. government) banned longlining for swordfish off the east coast of Florida just after the millennium."The fishery was coming back," he said.So in late 2001, Gaspeny started fishing at night again. But this time he began fishing with his good friend Richard Stanczyk, owner of Bud N' Mary's Fishing Marina in Islamorada. On Dec. 17, 2001, Gaspeny reeled in two of five swordfish caught on the Catch 22 that evening."That was when we realized that swordfish were swarming off the Keys and we really became obsessed with them," said Gaspeny, who has led shallow-water anglers to bonefish and tarpon off the island chain since 1975.Gaspeny, Richard Stanczyk, Stanczyk's brother Scott, who captains the Catch 22 and Richard's son Nick continued night fishing for swordfish off the Keys.After reading a magazine story about a doctor who had caught swordfish during daylight hours off Venezuela, Gaspeny persuaded the Stanczyks to try for a daytime broadbill off the Keys on Dec. 21, 2003. The small 60-pound fish they caught would revolutionize the way saltwater anglers pursue the highly prized game fish. The entourage spent time and money to pioneer new techniques. They tested baits ranging from squid to pelagic fish belly strips, pioneered break-away sinker apparatus to get baits to the bottom of the ocean in depths up to 2,000 feet and became experts at the game. In June 2006 Gaspeny realized that daytime swordfishing was so productive that he completely gave up fishing at night. By then, Gaspeny had caught 37 at night and three during daylight hours, an achievement worthy of any personal record book, especially when compared to many noted anglers.According to the International Game Fish Association, William Boschen caught the first-ever swordfish on rod and reel in 1913 off Catalina Island, Calif.In 1973, author George Reiger, wrote in his "Profiles in Saltwater Angling" that adventure novelist Zane Grey had landed 24 fish in a 10-year period aboard his 52-foot cruiser Gladiator. Grey helped found the Long Key Fishing Club. When inducted into the IGFAHall of Fame in 2002, California angler Roy "Ted" Naftzger had caught 49 swordfish since he began fishing for them in 1963, according to the IGFAwebsite. At the time, that was believed to be the most ever caught by a single angler. Naftzger died in 2007. "Swordfish are powerful, have marlin-like speed and tuna-like stamina," Gaspeny said. "They are a world-class game fish." On Nov. 11, 2007, Gaspeny, who maintains a meticulous fishing databank, caught his 100th fish, a 251pounder. "I never really had [quantity] goals, I just love catching them," Gaspeny said. "But when we got close to 100, that became a goal."But it's really not about the numbers," he said. "It's about the excitement of fishing for and pulling on them and the joy of doing it with people who share the passion."On July 16, 2009, Gaspeny caught his largest swordfish ever. A410pounder that fought well into the night. The 150th swordfish came 37 days later. On Nov. 17, 2010, Gaspeny caught six of seven swordfish caught on the Bn'M skippered by Nick Stanczyk, that day.The 199th fish came on Christmas Eve 2011 and then a lull, because both the Catch 22, skippered by Scott Stanczyk, and the Bn'M with Nick Stanczyk at the helm, simply were not available.The reason: Ahigh demand by customers who came to the Florida Keys from as far away as Australia to fish for swordfish. "There really was no pressure," Gaspeny said. "If I went to my grave with 199, it would have been fine." But now Gaspeny has a new goal. He wants to catch at least five more while fishing with the Stanczyks. "I want to be able to say that Richard has helped to lead one angler to more than 200 swordfish," Gaspeny said. "He, Scott and Nick really deserve the credit. "They've done 90 percent of the work," he said. "I just turn the handle."The mark comes while aboard the Catch 22'ISLAMORADA Keys LifeFlorida Keys Keynoter WWW.KEYSNET.COM SATURDAY,JULY 21,2012 CLASSIFIEDS INSIDE 6B The classic Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches have been around forever.Here's some advice for remaking that classic.Recipe, 2B Splendid splinter A postal stamp honoring baseball great Ted Williams a great Keys fisherman is one of four issued for diamond heroes.Story, 2B B Sports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Vic Gaspeny shows his 200th swordfish,hanging next to a nice catch of dolphin.Team looks for national hoops titleBefore starting their freshman year in high school, a group of Upper Keys athletes takes some classes on the basketball court. Ten players have stepped up their summer practices, from three sessions a week to four, in a quest of a national championship at a Virginia tournament next weekend. The Keys Sharks squad joins a 64-team bracket at the AAU East Coast Grade 8 National Championship Tournament, being played July 28 through Aug. 1 in Hampton, Va. "This is a big deal, a team from down here in Key Largo getting a bid to a national tournament," Keys Sharks head coach Tom Meiron said.On the Sharks roster: Richard Jacobson, Dylan Kling, Shaka Smith, Gage Gibson, Chris O'Berry, Cameron Rowland, JoJo Matulin, Bernie Estevez, Ariel Chavez and James Whipple. The Keys team plays Amateur Athletic Union games under the auspices of the Florida Keys Youth Sports Foundation. It apparently is the only youth AAU basketball team in the county. The island club qualified for the field in the AAU Division III's age group (1315) by winning games at the Southeast Super Regional tournament last month. Division III generally draws squads from suburban or rural areas with lower populations than cities. Teams at the Virginia event will play three games each to set the final-four championship round."Right now, the parents understand more than the kids how much of an honor this is," said Merion, a local youth coach recruited to lead the local AAU program in May.Merion played four years of college and junior college basketball, capping his career as top rebounder for Monmouth (Ill.) College's 1984-85 squad (18-7, conference champions)."We hope to go up there and do really well," Meiron said. "The main thing is to have an experience that builds character and confidence."BASKETBALL By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com Nobregas wins the Del BrownTony Nobregas of Islamorada caught and released two permit on fly, measuring a total of 44.5 inches, to win the 2012 Del Brown Permit Tournament that ended July 18 off Key West.The annual tournament honors the late angling legend Brown, who caught and released more than 500 permit on fly prior to his death in 2003.Nobregas garnered grandchampion honors while fishing with Capt.

They were to be dedicated Friday at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y.The DiMaggio stamp, by the way, won the race on pre-ordered stamp purchases. Williams (1918-2002) of the Boston Red Sox served during World War II and the Korean War. The last Major League player to bat over .400 for a single season, in 1941, Williams won six American League batting titles and four home run titles. Despite breaks in his career, Williams hit .344 over 19 years, including 521 home runs. DiMaggio (19141999) was admired for his skill and grace as a fielder and base runner. The Yankee Clipper is best known for his incredible 56-game hitting streak in 1941. DiMaggio who founded a children's hospital in Hollywood in Broward County led the New York Yankees to 10 pennants and nine World Series titles. Doby (1923-2003) was the first AfricanAmerican to play in the American League, joining the Cleveland Indians shortly after Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in the National League with the Dodgers. The seven-time All-Star excelled as a hitter and center fielder and set an American League outfielder record for 164 consecutive errorless games. Stargell (1940-2001) powered the 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates to a World Series title. Hitting 475 home runs during his career, the seven-time National League All-Star is famous for smashing baseballs out of stadiums.They include Williams, Keys flats fishermanCOLLECTIBLES Rethink the classic PB&JMost kids and many adults who want to remember being kids love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Problem is, this lunch-box staple is high in fat and sugar. So it's time for a remake of that beloved sandwich.The first fix is the bread. Skip the fluffy white bread and go straight to a multigrain or whole wheat. If texture is an issue, you can always opt for one of the soft varieties of whole wheat. Just be sure to read the packages, because so-called wheat bread often is made with mostly white flour. Opt for one that specifically says "100 percent whole wheat."The second fix is the jelly. Even the healthiest varieties are jammed with sugar. So we started with a base of all-fruit spread, but add a healthy dose of real fresh berries. This gives the sandwich just the right touch of sweetness and a big boost of fresh flavor.The final trouble spot is the peanut butter. Opting for a natural, unsweetened peanut butter gets you on the right track (most other peanut butters are filled with unnecessary sweeteners and added oils). But even regular peanut butter is loaded with fat. So you want to use it sparingly. But that doesn't taste nearly as good as really loading it on. The solution? Mix together peanut butter and cooked instant oatmeal. Crazy? Maybe a little. But oatmeal has a nutty, pasty quality to it already. Mixed with peanut butter, it makes a delicious sandwich filling. One tablespoon instant oatmeal. Three tablespoons nonfat milk. Pinch of salt. One tablespoon natural unsalted peanut butter. Quarter cup chopped fresh berries. Two teaspoons all-fruit spread. Two slices multigrain or whole-wheat bread. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the oatmeal, milk and salt. Microwave on high for one minute, or until boiling. Allow to cool for five minutes, then stir in the peanut butter. In another small bowl, stir together the berries and fruit spread. Spread the peanut butteroat mixture on one slice of bread and the fruit mixture over it. Top with the second slice of bread. Start to finish: 15 minutes.

Replacin g worn-out windows can perk up the appearance of a home, all while makin g rooms more comfortable and easin g coolin g and heatin g costs, says Kevin Morrow, senior pro g ram mana g er for Buildin g Green with the National Association of Home Builders in Washin g ton, D.C. "Homeowners should inspect their windows at least once a year. If you're feelin g a draft by a window in the wintertime, the cool air inside your home in the summertime is escapin g throu g h the same openin g ," he says. "Windows, by their very nature, have a lower insulation value, but havin g low-emissive windows can help miti g ate the loss of heatin g and air-conditionin g ." Morrow says caulkin g openin g s around the frame can be a quick, inexpensive fix to leaky windows, but that isn't always enou g h when the sill resembles a sieve. Three years a g o, Morrow replaced the windows in his 100-year-old Washin g ton townhouse with ener g yefficient ones. He immediately noticed a reduction in drafts and ambient noise from the street. "Today, there are minimum ener g y-efficiency standards for replacement windows, and the technolo g y to manufacture a better window continues to improve from even 20 years a g o," he says. "Aqualified professional can pop out an existin g window, and replace it with an entirely new unit, usually within a day." There are many options for homeowners who want to open new windows to suit their lifestyles. Before buyin g replacement windows, homeowners should know their pane priorities, based on the climate zone and a home's site orientation. Two of the most important factors to consider when purchasin g replacement windows are the U-factor which measures the rate of heat loss and the solar heat g ain coefficient which measures howeffectively the window blocks heat comin g from the sun. The lower the desi g nated number on these two ratin g s, the better the insulation value of the window. The U.S. Department of Ener g y steps consumers throu g h determinin g the best window options at its website: http://efficientwindows.or g /ener g ystar.cfm. The type of g lass, ran g in g from triple to impact-resistant panes, varies and affects a home's ener g y efficiency. Morrow says there are also many choices in window frames, which are most commonly made from wood, aluminum, fiber g lass or vinyl. While each material has benefits and drawbacks, the most popular new windows in the United States are vinyl, with a projected 33.1 million units to ship in 2012, accordin g to market studies conducted by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association and the Window and Door Manufacturers Association. Morrow says a friendly price point and low maintenance help contribute to vinyl windows'popularity. When replacin g windows, homeowners should also think outside the window box, says Marty Davis, marketin g mana g er for Simonton Windows, a leadin g vinyl window manufacturer based in Columbus, Ohio. Replacin g windows isn't just about ener g y savin g s," Davis says. "It can also open up many desi g n possibilities." Instead of replacin g many small windows on a wall, a homeowner may choose to open up views to the outside and create a sin g le lar g e bank of windows. Homeowners should prequalify window replacement contractors, usin g the followin g g uidelines: Check a contractor's permanent place of business, telephone number, tax identification number and business license. Look for a company with a proven track record that offers client references and a list of completed projects. Insist on a detailed, written proposal and examine it for a complete description of the work, includin g approximate startin g and completion dates and payment procedures. Check to see if the contractor is a member of any re g ional or national industry associations. Keep a healthy skepti-cism about the lowest bid. Price should be only one factor for selectin g a window replacement contractor. Professional-ism, experience and quality workmanship should also wei g h into your decision.But ensure contractor is qualifiedMiami HeraldENERGY CONSERVATION

Rated PG, 94 minutes, playing nationwide. The fourth installment in the Ice Age series is from Blue Sky studios, the same company that produced the three previous Ice Age films, as well as last years Rio. Its not the best of the series, nor is it the worst. The first movie in the sequence, Ice Age from 2002, was terrific, with an inspired script, clever sight gags and stunning visuals. The second film, Meltdown from 2006, was not quite up to par, but brought some romance to the script, fewer sight gags and the same beautiful graphics. Then came 2009s Dawn of the Dinosaurs, the weakest film in the franchise, whose only two saving graces were the one-eyed, knife-wielding weasel named Buck and, once again, the wonderful animation. This fourth installment has a weak plot, very few clever adult-targeted oneliners and not enough sight gags. But to make up for that, the CGI is beautiful the art and animation in Ice Age 4 is absolutely breathtaking. The water and waves are especially lifelike and some of the ocean scenes could be footage taken from a National Geographic documentary. The basic plot of Ice Age 4 is that Scrat, in his never-ending quest for nuts, has accidentally triggered the breakup of earths giant landmass, separating friends and family. All this leads to dangerous high seas adventures with pirates and finally (spoiler alert!), a joyous family reunion. For some reason, the pirate theme seems a little out of place, but there are some funny lines and sight gags to go along with the weak plotline. And pirates do serve to add another element of danger to an otherwiseBut story is strictly for little kidsFILM WANOUSSee Festival,5BSee Wanous,5B

Jed Dodds spent 13 years with The Creative Alliance in Baltimore, Md. The first full-time staff member of the Baltimore arts group, Dodds helped oversee the organizations growth from a budget of under $100,000 to more than $1.4 million. We believe that this experience will help Jed lead TSKWto the next level in this next crucially important stage of its life, said Rosi Ware, TSKW Board Chair. She said The Studios received 75 applications for the executive director post, with candidates from the U.S. as well as from England and Italy. Baltimores Creative Alliance has a staff of 14 and moved into a newlydeveloped arts center located in a former historic theater, Ware said. She added that the Alliance is recognized for presenting a staggering and diverse array of programs exhibits, performances, screenings, education and residency program. Dodds has a bachelors degree from Yale University and a Master of Fine Arts degree in sculpture from the Art Institute of Chicago. He also took executive training at the Stanford School of Business. His wife, Molly, is a parade and puppetry artist and professor at the Maryland Institute College of Art. They have an eight-year-old daughter, Sadie, who will be starting school in Key West when the new terms begins in August.

Johnson, who hails from Valdosta, Ga., has been playing country and rockabilly venues for nearly 30 years. Hes also a songwriter and his For Old Times Sake, recorded by Jerry Nalor hit the Billboard Top 100 back in 1986. While attending Belmont University in Nashville, Johnson got to share recording studios with the likes of Conrad Twitty and Charlie Daniels. At the SmokinTuna, the singer-songwriter will be on stage from 10 p.m. until closing and may even be joined by Key Wests Cliff Clifton for some sets.MUSIC JOHNSON DODDS not-so-dangerous story line. Also tucked into the story is an obvious life lesson for kids about choosing friends wisely and knowing who your real friends are. Ahost of new characters are introduced, with the pirate leader, Captain Gutt (voiced by the diminutive Peter Dinklage from Game of Thrones) a stand out among the crowd. Jennifer Lopez voices Shira, a possible love interest for Diego, the saber-toothed tiger, voiced by Denis Leary. Ray Romano, Queen Latifah and John Leguizamo return as voices of the main characters. Most animated films leave the viewer guessing about the voices by only listing the actorsnames in the ending credits. At the end of Ice Age 4, almost like a reward, the studio actually shows who voiced most of the characters in the film. Alegion of Hollywood stars, some big, some not so big, lend their voices to a wide assortment of characters and many may not be recognizable, even after seeing their faces. But putting names and faces with the voices is a great idea that I personally would like to see picked up by other animation studios. The most fun in all the Ice Age films, this one included, are the escapades of Scrat, the ever-frustrated, nut-chasing squirrel. In fact, Scrats misadventures and the short Simpsons film before this main feature are unfortunately better than the movie itself. This third sequel to the original Ice Age is aimed squarely at the kids and there are no one-liners or topical references for adults in the crowd unfortunately. So while the parents may enjoy some of the humorous sight gags, Ice Age 4 is strictly targeted to the kids. And thats not necessarily a bad thing judging by the laughs and giggles of youngsters in the theater. There are worse ways to spend a summer afternoon.Legion of Hollywood stars lend their voicesFrom Wanous,4B At Beautiful Rainbow Bend Resort Mile Marker 58,Grassy Key Reservations 289-1554 Credit Cards Accepted The only thing we overlook is the ocean.Open 7 days a week Dinner 4:30 10pm Breakfast 7:30 10am Formal yet warm setting...
