Stories and photos, 1B and 2B Group:Require land acquisitionFlorida's conservation buys of sensitive lands, which have nearly ground to a halt, must resume, says a statewide coalition of environmental groups. Atroubled economy and the current political thrust of the Florida Legislature have forced large cutbacks in the amount of money dedicated to protecting the state's remaining wild lands, backers of the Florida Water and Land Legacy Campaign said Tuesday. "It is more important than ever to have an active land-acquisition program," said Charles Lee of Florida Audubon, one of the groups joining the Legacy effort. South Florida and the Everglades, where urban areas abut unique wild environments, is a case in point, he said. "In that kind of interface, the bottom line is that land not purchased for management eventually will be paved over," Lee said. "If the state doesn't buy it, it's going to be a Walmart parking lot." The Florida Water and Land Legacy Campaign is collecting signatures for an amendment to the state Constitution that would dedicate about $10 billion over the next 20 years to land preservation. The amendment would require that a third of all document tax revenue be earmarked for Everglades restoration, the Florida Forever program and other environmental projects for the next 20 years. If approved in a planned 2014 statewide referendum, the proposal would go into effect July 1, 2015. The Florida Keys have been a primary focus of Florida Forever and other state conservation purchases for more than 20 years.

MM 50.5 (next to Herbies)743-2020 Two elected with no opponentsAll five seats on the Islamorada Village Council are up for election in November, but two of the races have already been decided because of lack of competition. Deb Gillis, a former councilwoman who owns three hotels in the village, was the only candidate to qualify for Seat 1 by deadline Tuesday. Seat 1 is now represented by Councilman Don Achenberg, who decided not to seek another term. Gillis served on the council for only eight months. She was appointed to replace Cathi Hill in summer 2009 when Hill, then the mayor, resigned months before her term was up. But Gillis lost a close election in March 2010 to Bob Johnson. (Village elections have since been changed to November) Another former council member Mike Forster, owner of Mangrove Mike's Cafe, also is the winner by default for Seat 5, currently held by Mayor Michael Reckwerdt. Forster, 52, who is also part owner of the Rain Barrel Sculpture Gallery, served on the council from 2002 to 2006. Reckwerdt was term-limited out. Council members cannot serve more than four two-year terms consecutively. Incumbents Ted Blackburn, Ken Philipson and David Purdo have one competitor each for their respective Seats 4, 3 and 2. Purdo, 70, is vying for a second term against newcomer Travis Yednak. The 31-year-old is part owner of The Real Estate Book of the Florida Keys and Key West, a magazine that advertises real estate listings in the county. Yednak said this week that he doesn't have any particular problems with the way the village is being represented, but said he was encouraged to run by friends and his sense of "civic duty." "I'm smart, objective and a good listener," Yednak said. "I was encouraged by a lot of friends and decided to just go for it." Philipson, 73, is being challenged by hotelier and airline pilot Paul Bates, who has run several unsuccessful campaigns for Village Council. Bates, 52, owns the Coconut Cove Resort and Marina. His platform consists principally of hiring inside legal counsel and severing ties with Miami law firm Weiss, Serota, Helfman, Pastoriza, Cole and Boniske. Blackburn, 64, faces Todd Chandler. Blackburn is running for his first full term as a councilman. He was appointed by his fellow councilmen in December 2010 after Bob Johnson stepped down for health reasons. Chandler, general manager of the Harbor Lights Motel in Islamorada, did not return a phone call for this report.Forster,Gillis will take seats after electionISLAMORADAWoman in fatality jailedATavernier woman whom state troopers say ran over and killed a man on Monday was jailed Tuesday on a felony charge of driving with a suspended license while causing a death. Debor-ah Wilson, 54, who lists her occupation as a laborer, is being held in the Monroe County Detention Center in lieu of $150,000 bond. The Florida Highway Patrol says that about 12:30 p.m. Monday, she ran over George Hanses, 85 and also from Tavernier, in the Tavernier Towne shopping center at mile marker 91 as he crossed a walkway. She was driving a 2003 Ford. Han-ses, the 16th traffic fatality south of Florida City in 2012, was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami, where he was later pronounced dead. County jail records show Wilson was arrested on July 4, 2005, for drunk driving and driving with a suspended license, and convicted that November.

Snead told the Keynoter she signed a lease Friday for a U.S. 1 location and does plan to expand her business, with a partner, to Big Pine. But she called Cunningham's accusation "a blatant lie." "What information would I have used that I didn't have as a physical therapist in this town?" she asked. "I've done absolutely nothing on that board except help the hospital run efficiently. I did everything and more to help the hospital." Fishermen's has a busy physical therapy operation of its own on Big Pine Key, but Snead told the board it's not meeting the community's need. She said there is an "18-patient waiting list" and pointed out that she helped find and design the hospital's Big Pine location, opened around a year ago. "If they can't serve the needs, someone has to do it. Because it's me, its a conflict of interest," she said. "All being on that board did was make me wait." Cunningham also said Snead was privy to information that Fishermen's would not renew contracts with cardiologist Dr. Luis Augsten and primary care physician Dr. Emma Stoll. "I was told they'd be working at least out of her office in Marathon. We're supposed to put the community first and I find it problematic she's taken privileged information to devise a business plan to compete with the hospital," Cunningham said. Snead refuted that, saying it's not been decided whether either doctor would lease space from her, nor what location. "There's absolutely no relationship with them coming to me other than that we're friends and we have been long before I was on the board," she said. Board member Jeff Coldren, a roofer, said he's OK with Snead stepping down and with her business plans. "She's in the [physical therapy] business and the board was aware of the business she was in. I don't have a problem with the way she did it. In an ideal arrangement, we wouldn't have members that might compete with us, but that's how it's been," he said. Attorney and board member David Kirwan said he's sorry to "see [Snead] leave this way. "I'm not angry with her; I'm disappointed in the way this has all played out," he said. "She has access to all the hospital financials as a board member. Now she's going to be competing against the hospital." Financial advisor and board member Peter Chapman was out of town for Tuesday's meeting but agreed with Kirwan. "I was upset to learn that information from the board meetings could potentially be used against the hospital," he said. Board member Daniel Samess, the Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce executive director, declined to comment. Board member Richard Malafy, an attorney, didn't attend the meeting where Snead resigned. "All I can say is Ginger is a friend of mine and I wish her the best in her new venture," he said. Cunningham said the board is close to naming Snead's replacement. He said he wanted written approval from each of the members before the person is announced. "We want someone who can represent the community. I want to make sure this person has no conflicts of interest or any agendas," Cunningham said.Board members contend Snead now in competitionFrom Hospital,1A KEYSNET.COM

Golden D.M.D. Bar: Immigrant eligibleThe Florida Board of Bar Examiners has found no "good moral character and fitness issues" that would disqualify an undocumented immigrant from being admitted to practice law in Florida, but awaits an opinion from the Florida Supreme Court before making a decision. In a filing Tuesday, the Board of Bar Examiners notified the Supreme Court that it determined last month that there are no such character issues that would automatically disqualify Jose Godinez-Samperio from practicing law, though it cautioned that it's possible, though unlikely, something could still come to light. Godinez-Samperio, 25, graduated from the Florida State University College of Law. But the board also notified lawyers representing Godinez-Samperio that a final decision will wait until the state Supreme Court weighs in. The letter was made public when it was sent Tuesday to the Supreme Court to be added to the record in the case. Initially, the Bar had denied Godinez-Samperio's application to the bar, even though he graduated from a Florida law school and passed the bar exam. In another filing Tuesday, the Board of Bar Examiners also acknowledged that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's recently announced change in policy regarding children brought to the country illegally likely has some bearing on the issue. The Obama Admin-istration announced in June that immigrants under 30 who arrived in the country as children, who otherwise have no criminal history and who have served in the military or graduated from high school, would be allowed to remain in the country and work. That would appear to apply to Godinez-Samperio, who was brought to the U.S. from Mexico on a visitors' visa when he was 9. His parents overstayed their visas and the family never returned.But statusas undocumented is in the wayNews Service of FloridaTHE LAWFoursaved in oceanHigh winds coupled with crowded August seas required three on-the-water rescues by Florida Keys state marine officers this week. None of the potentially dangerous incidents resulted in death or serious injury, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. On Wednesday in the Lower Keys, a 16-foot boat with two men aboard capsized near American Shoal. The sun was going down when Officer Jimmy Johnson received word of a 911 call made by cell phone. He reached the scene around 7:30 p.m. to find Jacksonville residents Jeremy Doan and Edward O'Keefe, both 39, sitting atop the overturned hull of their Baycraft boat. As the two tried to end their fishing trip, the boat's anchor line got caught in the propeller, turning the boat's stern into the rough seas. "Waves [came] over the transom and flooded the boat, causing it to capsize," the FWC reported. The boaters told Johnson that "it took only about 30 seconds to capsize." They were able to retrieve a dry box with a cell phone to call for help. Johnson took the men to the Venture Out Campground on Cudjoe Key. Asalvor recovered the boat. In a 10 a.m. Monday incident near Marathon, a diver disappeared in bad weather near East Washerwoman Shoal. "Weather conditions were heavy rain, 3to 5-foot swells and winds gusting to 15 knots," FWC officers Ryan Smith and Domingo Montalvo described. AU.S. Coast Guard boat was dispatched from its Marathon base, and a U.S. Navy helicopter flying overhead joined the search. Within minutes, the helicopter crew spotted what appeared to be the diver on the surface, not far from the FWC boat. The unharmed diver, identified only as Bruce Tusitin, was recovered and returned his boat. While on patrol Sunday in the Dry Tortugas, the FWC offshore patrol boat Peter Gladding was called to help search for a diver, Cory Rogers, 22, who had missing for more than an hour. The FWC crew calculated the likely current pattern and found Rogers about an hour later. Rogers was in the water for nearly three hours, and drifted about five miles from his boat. He gave up one of his speared fish to "the sharks that were nearby," he told the crew.Three occur the past weekON THE WATERPrescribed burn scrappedWinds too strong with rains too light forced officials to cancel Thursday's planned foliage burn on Big Pine Key. "The forecast said it would be windy Tuesday and Wednesday but it was supposed to die down Thursday," said Dana Cohen, fire-management specialist for the National Key Deer Refuge. "It became obvious that combined with less moisture than expected, we would not be able to meet" required conditions, she said. Factoring into the decision to postpone is a concern about whether firefighting resources would be available, owing to a busy fire season in western states. "The fire activity is ahead of normal out west," Cohen said. "More than likely, it will continue to increase." The prescribed burn on a 10-acre tract off the east side of Key Deer Boulevard was expected to be the only planned fire this summer. It could happen yet "but the chances are decreasing," Cohen said. The refuge would have to receive word of favorable conditions and the availability of firefighting units at least two days in advance so Big Pine Key residents could be alerted. "Prescribed fire is the burning of vegetation based on a prescription that takes into consideration fuel brush type, fuel moisture, relative humidity, air temperature, wind speed, wind direction and other atmospheric conditions," says a U.S Fish and Wildlife Statement. Aplanned fire on 20 acres of Key deer refuge land in September 2011 grew out of control and burned about 100 acres in what became known as the Blue Hole Fire. New protocols were adopted in the wake of that blaze, which forced a precautionary evacuation of the Pine Heights subdivision. The Blue Hole Fire was confined to refuge land and did not damage private property. An earlier Keynoter story incorrectly said the Blue Hole Fire was planned for a 10-acre site; it actually was planned for 20 acres.The weather, firefighters are reasons BIG PINE KEY the first week. It may take 10 or 12 days to start catching lobster. Then we could catch them every day, seven days a week." Keys Fisheries logged a modest 112 pounds of lobster on Monday, "just enough for our local restaurants," Graves said Friday. "People think there ought to be a million pounds of lobster on opening day but it doesn't work that way," Graves said. "It has not been a great start, for sure," said Marathon fisherman Bruce Irwin. Lower Keys fishermen Jason Yarbrough agreed, "We had a full moon and superclear water, which is not a recipe for success." "Once the waters dirty up, the lobsters shed and start to get hungry," Yarbrough said, "hopefully it will start to pick up." In the 2011-12 season, Florida's commercial fleet collected about 5.5 million pounds of lobster statewide, with an average dockside price of $6.61 per pound. In recent seasons, higher prices driven by demand from Asia for lobster particularly live lobster have bolstered the industry. Wholesale prices this season are starting about $1 per pound under below last year, according to scattered reports. In Maine, a banner summer harvest of soft-shell lobster caused wholesale prices to be slashed by half, to about $2 per pound. Faced with the lowest price seen in decades and supplies piling up, many boats have stopped fishing, according to Maine news reports. The situation caused an international incident when Canadian lobster fishers blocked U.S. trucks trying to deliver their catch to Canadian lobster-processing plants in New Brunswick. Live Maine lobsters seen in selection tanks are hard shells, taken in the fall. What the Maine price decline will mean to the Florida market cannot yet be determined, Graves said. "It's a worldwide market so it definitely will have an effect," he said. "But we have a long way to go before we figure out what it will be." Spiny lobster is the most important seafood catch for the Keys commercial fleet.Too early to tellFrom Lobster,1ABy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com

City delays Peary Court decisionAn advertising error delayed Key West City Commission approval of a change in residential density allowances for the Peary Court neighborhood in Old Town. Development firm White Street Partners is in the process of buying the 24acre, 157-unit military housing neighborhood from the U.S. Navy's housing partner firm, Southeast Housing LLC. To meet a city requirement that 30 percent of the units be affordable, White Street Partners needs to construct 48 new units. That's a density of nine units per acre, as opposed to the eight as publicly advertised. That led the commission Tuesday night to withdrew the issue for consideration so it can be taken up again after correct advertisements are circulated. White Street Partners planner Donna Bosold pointed out in making her client's case that the surrounding neighborhoods support density of up to 16 units per acre, nearly half of what's required in Peary Court. Naja Girard, who lives nearby in the Palm Avenue neighborhood, asked commissioners not to include that comparison in their decision-making. "I would urge you not to look at the density, 16 units per acre, of the neighboring areas that were built up long ago when we didn't have traffic issues like we do today or hurricane safety issues like we do today." "Please don't increase density in Key West. I don't think we need to be doing that at all anymore." Development in the Keys, a state-designated Area of Critical State Concern, is guided by hurricane evacuation clearance time. Building permits, originating with the state Department of Economic Opportunity, are granted only when vehicles associated with the housing are weighed against getting everyone out of the Keys in 24 hours. Don Craig, the city's planning director, said DEO staff would give the city 48 affordable units to accommodate the development at Peary Court. Potentially complicating the sale of the property is a lien placed against all 890 privately owned military housing units in Key West, including Peary Court, by the Monroe County Property Appraiser's Office. Property Appraiser Karl Borglum has reversed a 2007 tax exemption given the properties when Southeast Housing took ownership of the houses, but not property, from the Navy. Now, faced with an $11.4 million bill for four years of back taxes, penalties and interest, Southeast is contesting the liens through a lawsuit in Monroe County Circuit Court. Before the sale to White Street Partners can be finalized, the lien would have to be worked out via court order, payment or discounting the sale price, rumored in the $30 million range.Incorrect unit density advertisedKEY WESTBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com GET RESULTSWith KeynoterClassifieds 743-5551

Singh gets hotel approvalAfter much discussion about where employees would park in alreadycrowded Old Town, the Key West City Commission on Tuesday approved a development plan for a 96-room hotel on Caroline Street. Developer Pritam Singh, who built out Truman Annex and the Parrot Key Hotel and Resort among other Florida Keys properties, wants to transform the former Jabour's Trailer Court into a densely landscaped Harborside Hotel. Singh acquired the property after a bank foreclosed on the failed Watermark condominium project. The development plan calls for off-site parking for hotel guests in a nearby city-owned lot. Singh says he will plan for and secure employee parking, but at this point hasn't analyzed his needs or found space. Guest parking in the city lot will cost Singh $104,000 per year. The employee parking issue was enough to lose Commissioner Jimmy Weekley's vote. Commissioner Mark Rossi threatened to follow suit but voted in favor. "Where are the employees parking?" Rossi asked Singh. "You told us you were going to do employee parking. Where are they parking? Off site in the neighborhoods?" "I don't have a space for them at this particular point," Singh responded. "I have to solve the parking off-site problem. We have to make arrangements." Several people who live in the neighborhood objected to the size of the planned hotel. Richard Curry, who has lived at Caroline and Elizabeth streets for more than six decades, asked, "When is enough enough?" "Traffic is out of control," Curry said. "All of a sudden when employees that live in Stock Island and everywhere else pile in there and take up the spaces so a lot of local parking is gone. The project is too large for the area. Would you like 96 units across from your house? I don't think so."Street artistsAlso Tuesday, commissioners postponed adoption of two proposed ordinances meant to regulate street artists and performers working on Duval Street. One law would prohibit artists from selling their wares within 75 feet of a store that sells similar items. The other new law would prohibit artists and performers from working on Duval from the intersection of South Street to the South Street Pier. Mayor Craig Cates and Commissioner Clayton Lopez, the respective sponsors, say they will meet with those affected and try to find a less restrictive compromise. Comm-issioner Billy Wardlow was absent.Employee parking an issueKEY WEST26 named in reportFormer Monroe County Technical Services Director Lisa Druckemiller says she's being judged prematurely for her alleged theft and reselling of 52 county-owned Apple iPads and iPhones to co-workers and others. Druckemiller, 51, entered a written plea of not guilty on Wednesday, not appearing in Monroe County Circuit Court. She's accused of two felony counts of dealing in stolen property and a scheme to defraud between $20,000 and $50,000. Referring to herself, Druckemiller told the Keynoter Friday that a 31year county employee wouldn't be compromised "in one day." She's long intimated that several co-workers were involved in the scheme. "I encourage you to wait for the report," she said, referring to a grand jury report finalized Monday. Assistant State Attorney Mark Wilson told the Keynoter that 26 "potentially censurable" individuals named in the report are entitled to a 15-day review period before it's made public. The report was finalized Aug. 3 and the final person named in it received it Aug. 7. There is a "statutory 15day limit to file a motion to either repress or expunge portions they believe are improper or unlawful. It doesn't get filed with the [Monroe County Clerk's Office] until that 15-day window comes and goes," he said. "If you're named and there's even an inference that your conduct was censurable, you get a copy." That almost certainly includes County Administrator Roman Gastesi, who's insinuated he testified before the grand jury that investigated the theft. Gastesi has admitted to paying Druckemiller cash for an iPad and two iPhones, while senior systems analyst Hank Kokenzie paid cash for three iPads and two iPhones. Wilson said it would take only one of the 26 noticed people to file a motion for the report's release to be delayed. He said such motions are "not typical, but it does happen." "The problem is that, unfortunately for people who get named, the grounds for repressing aren't, I feel I'm being unfairly criticized.'The only grounds you can raise is that the criticism falls outside the grand jury's inquiry," he said. Meanwhile, Wilson said he's discussed a potential plea with Druckemiller attorneys Ron Strauss and Robert Cintron. Cintron declined to comment on the talks. "I met with [them] on Aug. 2 and we talked for about an hour and we'll talk some more. I think we're reasonably close," Wilson said, noting time spent in jail or prison is the main sticking point. "I'm sure it won't come as any surprise they're trying to minimize the amount of time she serves. They, of course, would prefer jail. Our position is it merits prison time and so here we are," he said. Cintron did not return a Friday call for comment. Jail time is anything under one year to be served at the Monroe County Detention Center on Stock Island. Prison terms are served at larger state institutions. Druckemiller came under investigation in March when a county Fire Rescue administrative assistant noticed an $800 iPad charge on the department's monthly AT&T bill. Fire Chief Jim Callahan says it was for an iPad assigned to Capt. Steve Zavalney who never received the device. Druckemiller is tentatively scheduled to stand trial before Circuit Court Judge Wayne Miller at 8:30 a.m. Oct. 15 at the Freeman Justice Center in Key West. "We expect it to be resolved long before that," Wilson said.Druckemiller: Don't yet pass judgmentIPAD/IPHONE INVESTIGATIONCounty: Navy EIS flawedMonroe County will ask the U.S. Navy to toss out its draft environmental impact statement for increased operations at Naval Air Station Key West and start over. When it meets Wednesday at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center in Key Largo, the commission is expected to OK a 12-page letter to be sent to Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southeast in Jacksonville that outlines 41 specific concerns. They're mostly related to increased aircraft noise. The voluminous draft EIS details existing conditions at the Lower Keys military base and considers three alternatives that would increase flight training and, subsequently, how the associated jet noise would impact area residents and the environment. "Monroe County cannot support any of the action alternatives at this time. Therefore, we respectfully request that the Navy withdraw" the draft EIS, the letter says. Commissioner Kim Wigington calls the letter "protective" and explained that by asking for a withdrawal, the county is asking the Navy to start over on the draftstage EIS, including a reevaluation of current conditions. Of the four options three alternatives and taking no action the most extreme would increase flight operations from the current 47,500 to a maximum of 57,000, in addition to swapping the F-18 Super Hornet for the newer, and in some instances louder, F-35 Lightning II. Part of the county objection to the action alternatives is the assessment of ongoing operations at NAS Key West. "We are concerned that the baseline condition ... does not accurately reflect current conditions. Without an accurate baseline condition, the analysis of the proposed alternative is flawed." Monroe County already has an ordinance that defines the area impacted by Navy jet noise and how the military and county can collaborate on zoning and development issues. That area, running from Stock Island west along the Keys to Bay Point, encompasses some 2,532 developed properties, according to county Growth Management staff. NAS Key West spokeswoman Trice Denny says public comments are incorporated into the EIS, answered by subject-area experts, reviewed by federal decision-makers and included in the final document.Commission will request a do-overMILITARYCouncil to codify hotel-room lawAnew law allowing the city of Marathon to hand out up to 200 hotel-room allocations is up for second hearing Tuesday before the City Council. The council gave initial approval at its July 24 meeting, with minor changes to the advisory Planning Commission's version of the law. It adopts changes to the city's land development regulations lifting a longstanding moratorium on new transient rental units. The city was awarded 100 new units by the state Cabinet in January, as well as the right to borrow forward another 100. The council overrode Planning Commissioner Morgan Hill's suggestion to have the law include RVs in the allocation of the units. Planning Director George Garrett said the state is clear it prefers hotel units to RVs. RVs would be ineligible for the first 100 units, but the council agreed to consider RVunits if the city borrows forward from its own pool in the future. The law would finalize numerous other criteria to apply for the units. They include a maximum allocation to any property of 25 units, or 25 percent of the total number of existing units; one active application per individual, entity or corporation; a $5,000 application fee; and demonstration of financial capability to complete the project. Tuesday's meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center. Other agenda items include: Adiscussion led by Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay regarding the Maytag Clean Laundry and its sewer-related expenses with the city. The city passed a law in 2009 allowing owner Donna Farmer to lease sewer credits and avoid paying around $260,000 over 20 years for 31.7 equivalent dwelling units. EDUs relate to the amount of water flow at a property. According to city records, the laundry's annual sewer credit assessment is $14,472. "If you add up how much she makes and how much she pays on flows ... she's losing money staying open," Ramsay said. He said he'll suggest amending the ordinance to read that Laundromats be charged for one EDU ($5,730 in the city of Marathon) regardless of water use and pay standard usage fees on top of that.

Saturday,August 11,2012 7A Keynoter KeysNet.com what the priorities are." While acknowledging many areas that needed attention, "We have to get the budget complete. That's probably the most critical piece right now." Vitas inherited the budget for fiscal year 2012-13 from predecessor Jim Scholl, who retired after five years. Vitas, 55, described Scholl's administration as "organizing and housekeeping." "That's not going to stop with me." The Chicago-area native singled out areas where action has been "stalled" such as development at the Truman Waterfront and an overall need to catch up on "deferred maintenance" and modernize public infrastructure. "The longer we wait, the more expensive it becomes. Delays cost taxpayers money." Describing his management style, Vitas likened himself to a "rubber band." "From a management philosophy, I need to work with the mayor and the commissioners on a regular basis. On the opposite extreme, you have the administration. We have the right people in the right place. There's enough direction get to things done. I kind of sit in the middle." Vitas, married with three children in their 20s, has worked in municipal government, both as an administrator and in a consulting capacity, since 1980. He says his favorite band, particularly from his middle and high school years, is Chicago; he attended high school with one of the musicians from the band and attended many of their concerts. Friday, Vitas also recounted recently attending a Carole King and James Taylor show and reminisced that King looked now "just like she did, in that peasant shirt," as she did when he attended one of the songstresses concerts decades ago. Vitas earns $180,000 per year and agreed in June to a three-year contract. He has a bachelor's degree in public law and international relations from Northern Illinois University and a master's in public affairs from the same university. Most recently, he was village manager of Lake Zurich, Ill. He also is a former manager of Lewiston, Maine, and Menasha, Wis. He has worked as a project consultant in Serbia, the Republic of Zambia and in Bosnia-Herzegovina. He beat out an initial pool of 79 applicants for the city manager.

The divers, in Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary waters, witnessed male pillar coral colonies release sperm, followed a few minutes later by female colonies releasing eggs. It marked the first officially documented occurrence of such behavior in Florida. Previously, it had been unclear whether a female pillar coral population existed in the state, as no one had documented the release of pillar coral eggs. Researchers were on hand to try to observe the activity during the twoto five-day period after the August full moon, a time when corals are known to spawn. "We are excited to confirm the presence of male and female pillar coral colonies in Florida," said Kate Lunz, an FWC research scientist who participated in the dive. "This indicates a population with the potential to reproduce." Unlike many other stony coral species, which produce both sperm and eggs, pillar coral form separate male and female colonies for reproduction. The colonies are made up of multiple pillars, or columns, clustered together and rising from the ocean floor. Pillar coral is a state-listed threatened species and is rare in the Florida reef tract. Its range in the state is believed to stretch from Palm Beach County to the Dry Tortugas. It was a popular target of the curio trade before its collection was banned. The coral continues to face threats from disease, sedimentation and other factors.Researchers document spawningENVIRONMENT Mosquitoes take 5 days to grow from egg to adult.

These Florida International University students worked very hard on their ideas. Some of them were fantastic. They were not supposed to worry about money, just great ideas. But all that was written in the Keynoter were negative quotes from the county commissioners and staff. Hopefully, we can draw on some of these designs and incorporate them into a plan for the old Seven Mile Bridge that we can all be proud of. This is a great piece of our history and needs to be preserved. I am sure everyone long ago thought Henry Flagler was unrealistic, but if not for him, we might all not even be here. I would bet if you gave any one of these designs to Disneyland, they could build it. So why can't we? I would like to thank all of the students who worked on this project. Karen Dennis MarathonTake fire adviceThe National Key Deer Refuge plans to burn a 10-acre strip along Key Deer Boulevard. This parcel was just burned three years ago in 2009. There is no ecological reason for this burn to take place. In November 2011, refuge manager Anne Morkill said the refuge's fire management plan calls for a burn cycle of eight to 12 years. This was after the refuge's out-of-control prescribed burn on Sept. 15, 2011, and new burn guidelines were adopted. This parcel is part of a Pleistocene ridge that runs along Key Deer Boulevard from just south of the Blue Hole and into the Eden Pines subdivision. It is a unique geological feature and the longest and highest ridge in the Lower Keys. It contains a unique sinkhole community found nowhere else. When the bike path was constructed here, I was able to convince Monroe County Public Works to curve it around the sinkholes instead of degrading them. They contain a large percentage of the only remaining swamp bay trees, persea borbonea, left in the Keys. These rare trees along with other species are the remnants of a flora from when the sea level was much lower than present. They survived the 2009 burn scorched and top burned. In late September 2011, we were promised a public panel discussion regarding prescribed burning in the Keys to take place in January 2012. The management of the refuge has avoided this commitment. Although we met with their burn boss in 2009 and offered suggestions, no similar opportunities have taken place since. The Keys have lost half of their pine rocklands in the past 30 years. It is not right to experiment anymore onwhat we have left. Prescribed burns should be conducted only under the most stringent conditions. We urge the managers of the National Key Deer Refuge to adopt the burn parameters of the Pine Rocklands Citizens Task Force and respect the safety of our residents and protect the remaining habitats and wildlife within the refuge. Robert Ehrig Big Pine KeyEfforts to purge voter rolls, restrict registration off base; state should act to avoid trialIn golf, a mulligan is a do-over a chance to forget a bad hit off the tee and get a second chance. It might be that Florida should try for a mulligan in its battle with the federal government over the state's voter-roll purge. Despite a slew of lawsuits filed in state and federal courts, Florida is hanging tough and says its efforts to disqualify thousands of registered voters are designed to ferret out fraud. The federal government sued in June, arguing that Florida was violating federal election laws in how the purge was conducted and by ordering the purge too close to an election. Here in the Florida Keys, our own Republican supervisor of elections, Harry Sawyer, joined other local elections officials Democrats and Republicans and basically said "enough." The state purge list included names of non-citizens who had Florida driver licenses a list Sawyer described as "old and not accurate." Florida countersued the federal government, demanding access to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's immigration database to crosscheck with state voter rolls, looking to track down non-citizens. The feds gave Florida access to the immigration database July 13. In the meantime, U.S. District Court Judge Robert Hinkle issued an order that struck down parts of Florida's 2011 election law "reforms." He said the state can't require voter registration groups to submit signed forms within 48 hours of them being signed or face fines, a restriction widely seen as discouraging the type of voter registration drives that took place in the lead-up to the 2008 presidential election. Hinkle said voter-registration activity is protected speech under the First Amendment. Florida is racking up big legal expenses continuing to fight challenges to its restrictive voting laws as well as the flawed motor-voter purge launched earlier this year. Instead of continuing to bull blindly down that path, it's time for Gov. Rick Scott and state election officials to take a mulligan. Hinkle signed an order on Wednesday that signals a trial date may be set in January. It's already too late to impact the November presidential race that's water over the dam. But it's not too late to repair Florida's damaged reputation for fair and impartial elections.Don't forget to vote TuesdayFollowing is a recap of our editorial endorsements for Tuesday's primary election: For Democrats, state Senate District 39: Ron Saunders.

The lot stands out in the Cross Key Waterways subdivision, a waterfront community behind the Pink Plaza shopping center on the bayside of U.S. 1 around mile marker 103.5. Most of the neighboring houses and mobile homes are well maintained, but the 4,000-square-foot canal-front lot owned by Jean Pierre Francois Sandal looks like a junkyard. At least two broken-down, older-model cars, several boats, bicycles, PVC pipes, fishing gear and other items litter the lot. The canal behind it has at least two abandoned vessels. Inside the mobile homes, the conditions are just as bad, or worse, according to Monroe County documents. An agenda summary for the County Commission, states "mobile home in state of deterioration; mobile home floors sagging and shed walls leaning; and unsafe electric, plumbing and floors." The County Commission is scheduled to discuss the lot at its Aug. 15 meeting at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center in Key Largo. The five-member board is expected to approve initial litigation against Sandal, "including but not limited to foreclosing the code compliance liens on his properties." Sandal could not be reached for comment. He was not at his Calder Road lot, and a phone call made to a number found for him after an Internet search went unanswered. The phone number was connected to a boat repair business Sandal apparently ran out of his property, called Final Touch Yacht Refinishing. The business is listed in several online directories, but does not appear to have ever been registered with the state. Sandal apparently hasn't responded to county officials' numerous attempts to reach him since 2009, either. "The owner has not attended any of the Code Compliance hearings nor made any effort to clean up either property," county legal staff wrote in a memo to the County Commission. The Monroe County Code Compliance Department received its first complaint from neighbors about Sandal's property in March 2009. A special magistrate deemed the property uninhabitable later that year and imposed a fine of $150 per day that commenced running on Nov. 26, 2009. The magistrate hiked up the fines to $400 a day effective July 13, 2011. By the time of next week's County Commission meeting, the liens will have accrued to $686,888, according to county records. The county property appraiser has also revoked the homestead exemption Sandal claimed on one of the trailers when it was discovered he lives in Miami-Dade County. Florida's homestead exemption reduces the amount of a home's taxable assessed value by $50,000 if the home is the owner's primary residence. This means the owner of a $350,000 home pays property taxes on $300,000. Homestead fraud is a first-degree misdemeanor. Wes Brown, from Morehead City, N.C., was staying in a vacation rental home with his family across the street from Sandal's property earlier this week. The well-kept, two-story concrete home right on the bay could not be more of a contrast to the derelict mess just feet away an observation not lost on Brown. "It's great to come to the Keys and rent a house," Brown said. "This place is really nice, but it's a shame you look across the street and have to see that."Commission considers its optionsKEY LARGODAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.com Photo by DAVID GOODHUEThis shows some of the trash on the property.

Call Laura today!743-5551 Daffy Doug's is no moreDaffy Doug's Discount Dollar owner Doug Austin says he'd "rather be poor and happy than rich and miserable." That's the outlook he says he took when his popular dollar store around mile marker 48.5 of U.S. 1 in Marathon closed for good Sunday. The store was open for just under three years. Austin said his landlord moved to evict him when he fell 60 days behind on the $11,000 monthly rent. He estimates 5,000 shoppers crowded the store on its final weekend, waiting upward of an hour to check out items 50 percent off. By closing Sunday, Austin said the store was giving away perishables like milk and cheese. Austin said he believes the impact on lower-income residents that frequented his store will be "enormous." He says residents turned to Daffy Doug's for discount prices on home essentials like paper towels and toilet paper. "We heard it every day from the poorer people," he said, referring to their appreciation of lower prices. Austin said a combination of factors led to the closing, most notably those same lower-income consumers hunkering down in a down economy. He said customers are buying "necessities," as opposed to "trinkets and fun things" with a much higher markup. "We were always busy," he said, "but we have to do $3 million [in business per year] to break even. We only have 18 parking spaces," he said. Parking was a huge issue, Austin said. He went as far as to rent six spots from the adjacent business Sea Air Land Technologies for $1,000 monthly. But it was never enough, just like expanding the business to include a deli and baitand-tackle shop wasn't enough to keep the store open. Austin says he was forced to try to create more profit. "I never wanted to expand at all," he said, noting Daffy Doug's "has never been in the black." Austin says he's lost everything trying to sustain the store, including savings and numerous properties such as his house near Sombrero Beach. His Big Pine Key dollar store shut down around a year ago. Austin estimates he's invested $1 million into the Marathon location. Austin, 51, says he's run various businesses over the past 30-plus years, including a charter fishing company and two restaurants. He had a business renting out parasails and personal watercraft in the 1970s. But whatever it was, he says he had always been successful. Daffy Doug's was going to be his last business before retirement either way, but Austin said he never expected it to end this way. "I lost not only big, I lost huge," he said. Out-of-town movers have spent the past week packing what's left of the store up into boxes. Austin had two rooms in the back jam packed full of pallets wrapped in plastic. The plan is to have them picked up in semi-trailer trucks and stored in a North Florida building Austin owns. He said he hopes to auction the whole lot off to someone. The building is owned by R.D.J. Corp. in Jacksonville. It's broken up into two parcels valued at $1.16 million, according to the Monroe County Property Appraiser's Office.Citing losses, owner shutters dollar storeMARATHON Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYThe inside of Daffy Doug's is now just a shell since the shelves were taken down and most of the remaining inventory removed.Cruise industry hurtingSix months after the Costa Concordia struck a giant rock and capsized, the cruise industry is treading water, faced with depressed fares in key markets, continuing negative headlines and would-be cruisers still spooked by the deadly disaster. Relatives of the 32 people who died in the wreck gathered Friday on the island of Giglio to remember their lost loved ones. The 952-foot ship remains on its side in the water off the coast of Italy, awaiting the cranes that will pull it upright. If all goes according to plan, the Concordia will be towed away by the end of January more than a year after the wreck. As work to remove the wreck moves to a new phase, cruise operators many based in South Florida are still looking for a financial recovery. By the end of this year, they hope, their businesses will be on a straighter course. In the meantime, lawsuits related to the Jan. 13 catastrophe are piling up. The captain blamed for the accident still being investigated but no longer on house arrest is making new headlines in television interviews. And the larger question of safety on cruise ships is earning greater scrutiny as longtime critics gain a wider audience. "My gut is that we won't see the new normal until we get past the year's anniversary," said Carolyn Spencer Brown, editor-in-chief of the website CruiseCritic.com.Fallout from capsizing still a roadblockTOURISM By RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com BusinessBy HANNAH SAMPSONhsampson@MiamiHerald.com

Keys LifeFlorida Keys Keynoter WWW.KEYSNET.COM SATURDAY,AUGUST 11,2012 CLASSIFIEDS INSIDE 6B In L'Attitudes The Works Progress Administration brought lots of jobs -and art -to the Keys.Story, 4B In love with chips Americans love their potato chips,but not every chip is created equal.Story, 3B B Sports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & EntertainmentStrategy's key at consignment storesFlorida is home to some of the best consignment stores in the country. Not only are they great for selling your gently used items, they're also great for finding unique vintage and brand-name items for a fraction of the cost. Think of them as a hand-selected version of a thrift store or garage sale without all the junk. Only the best of the best gets sold at consignment boutiques. That said, people often say that shopping at consignment stores can be intimidating. They don't like digging and they're overwhelmed before they even get started. Well, here are some recommendations to help. Start your visit by asking the owner or sales associate if they have anything new in. This usually will prompt them to show you a few of their favorite things around the store, which usually translates to be a really great find. Next, start shopping in the jewelry or accessories area, as they're typically displayed in an easy-tobrowse way that will let you look without all the digging. Look for great bangles and long pendants to pair with dresses and sandals for a beachy chic look. Also look for vintage clutches for evenings out and unique sunglasses. After all, a Florida Keys girl can never have too many sunglasses. Dresses are another easy area to browse because they're usually hung by size and style and can be easily sifted through without much work. Fashion repeats itself, so many of the styles that would be considered vintage are back in again. Always try it on many vintage pieces aren't marked or accurately sized. At the very least, your dressing-room experience could turn into a fun flashback to a 1980s prom. Look for designer names since consignment stores usually carry a great selection of high-end labels most of us would never normally be able to afford. Make sure to always double check your items before you buy, as many may be vintage and you want to be sure you're OK with its condition. Nothing is worse than getting home only to realize it's missing a button and you don't have time to make repairs. That said, most consignment stores will only accept items in the best condition. Here are a few amazing pieces found the at MS.cellaneous consignment boutique in Islamorada, just to give you some ideas. Vintage gold-mesh necklace with large medallion ($30). Pair this necklace with a long maxi dress and gold bangles and earrings. Chain body jewelry ($60). This piece would look amazing over a black dress. Black vintage 80s dress size 8 ($20). The style is so in again. Wear it with cute heels to a more formal function since it's long, hitting just beneath the knees. Consider cutting out the shoulder pads, although leaving them in could be kind of fabulous, as well. Escada knit suit ($46). Vintage suits look great when separated for a more modern look. Worn more like a sweater, this knit jacket would be a preppy addition to a chic structured shift dress for cooler evenings. Pastel green vintage handbag and matching gloves ($28).

"Two minutes to go!" second-year head coach Ed Holly shouted following his carefully timed practice schedule during a passing drill at Thursday's first session of full-pad contact.Monday's opening session drew 35 players for the Hurricane workout, with several veterans expected to join as they return from family trips. Ranks could swell as more first-year freshmen turn out when school begins Aug. 20."We're just excited to get started," Holly said.Asummer weightlifting and conditioning program headed by trainer and assistant coach Adam Bort regularly attracted about "a great turnout" of 18 to 20 players, Holly said.The Hurricanes stage the fall Green and Gold Game, an intrasquad scrimmage at 7 p.m. Friday at Coral Shores. That sets the stage for a preseason Kickoff Classic game at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 24, played in Tavernier against visiting Keys Gate Charter. The regular season opens at home Aug. 31 against Solid Rock Christian School. Coral Shores then plunges into its first South Florida Football Conference schedule with seven games against league foes before conference playoffs in late October. The Hurricanes and rival Marathon High School both compete in the conference's South Division, along with Miami-Dade schools Archbishop Curley, Florida Christian, LaSalle, Miami Country Day and Ransom Everglades. The 14-team conference came together when a coalition of South Florida school athletic officials agreed to step out of state district play to arrange schedules matching programs of similar size and ability.More expected once school year beginsCORAL SHORES FOOTBALLBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWCoral Shores receiver Jim Rhyne (2) tries to elude two Hurricane teammates in a Thursday passing drill during preseason practice.The Canes stage an intrasquad next Friday.Conchs hit the field"Now it's time to have a little fun," Johnny Hughes, Key West High's new football coach, said at 4 Thursday afternoon, just before the team's first practice in full armor. (The previous three days had seen the players work out in shorts.)Hughes was in his office, a room where the air-conditioning was on the blink. On a board was a diagramed play called "600 flood comeback (wildcat)," part of the Conchs' new flexbone (triple-option) offense that will be displayed during a preseason game against Cardinal Gibbons at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 23 (a Thursday) at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium. "We've been working all summer," Hughes said, alluding to long hours of weightlifting and conditioning drills that involved heavy tires and massive shrimp ropes.There was also a three-day camp in July that was part of something called the Flexbone Association, a national group of coaches (from Navy, Georgia Tech and smaller schools) devoted to the tripleoption. "We share information about the offense and how to do what against certain defenses," Hughes said.The camp was conducted by a high-school coach from Wisconsin who had ridden the flexbone to 10 state titles. "He said, When you do it right, it's a tough offense to stop you just have to know where to go,'" Hughes said.The visiting coach had high praise, Hughes said, for quarterback Donald Roberts and the speedy running back Deonte Stemage.The Conchs were introduced to the flexbone in May, but it failed to produce a point in a spring-game loss. Hughes believes that his players can master it, especially if playaction and sprint-out passes are occasionally mixed in."Our first-team guys can be very competitive," he said. "But we need to acquire quality depth." An hour later, the alreadysweaty Conchs, in white uniforms and shiny red helmets, were out on the field running sprints. "You're gonna represent this whole damn island," assistant coach J.P. Garcia shouted. "Let's go, baby. Conch pride. Give it up." The players'shoulder pads clicked as they ran. Drills were next and the sounds got louder as the Conchs punished blocking dummies and then one another. Two weeks didn't seem far away.Preseason will start with GibbonsBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST FOOTBALL Photo by BERT BUDDEKey West High's Anthony Henriquez plows into a blocking dummy held by assistant coach J.P.Garcia during the Conchs'practice Thursday.Preston is new Conch ADFor years, Neda Preston has been the woman in the red Conchs shirt selling tickets for Key West High School sports events at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium and the Bobby Menendez Gym.The school's business manager no longer, Preston is the new athletic director, succeeding Ralph Henriquez, who was not retained after two years at the position. She is the fourth AD since 2005 the other two were Peter Fraga and Judd Wise.Thirtyfour and with and an easy smile, Preston talked about her new job she will oversee 15 teams in her office Wednesday morning."I talked to the swim team," she said.

Mornings she will teach algebra, afternoons she will devote to her AD duties and evenings she will be at events. "It will be a lot of hard work but it will be fun," she said. "I'm single and don't have any kids." Conch girls soccer coach Scott Paul who depends on an athletic director to make sure "the buses are taken care of and games are double-confirmed" as well as opening the stadium gates and concessions stands said he's pleased with Preston's appointment.

And that's just the start of it. Though thin and flat may be the national standard and bestselling variety of this ubiquitous snack, regional and sometimes hyper-local preferences for different calibers of crunch, thickness, seasonings and endless other elements have created a surprisingly diverse culinary patchwork of chip styles around the country. That's right the chips you nosh in the Northeast could be wildly different than those savored in the South. Midwesterners, for example, prefer a thicker, more substantial chip. Big, hearty chips also sell well in New England and the Rockies, though in the latter area those progressive mountain folk want theirs with artisanal seasonings. Southerners love barbecue flavor, chip industry executives say, but it needs to be sprinkled on thin, meltin-your-mouth chips. Southwestern states predictably go for bold and spicy. Local flavors such as New Orleans Cajun and Mid-Atlantic crab seasoning find their way onto chips in those places. And people all across the country, it seems, love a curly, shattering kettle chip. "People like the potato chip they grew up with," says Jim McCarthy, chief executive officer at the Rosslyn, Va.-based Snack Food Association, a trade group that represents the many denizens of convenience store shelves. "There's a very strong brand recognition and brand loyalty to the chip you grew up with." Potato chips are America's No. 1 snack, according to the group's 2012 state-of-the-industry report, and we spent $9 billion on them in 2010, 50 percent more than what we spent on the No. 2 snack, tortilla chips. More than half of those sales go to Plano, Texasbased Frito-Lay North America, whose original thin, crispy chip is the topseller. But hometown styles still claim their territory. In the Pacific Northwest, Seattle's thick-cut Tim's Cascade Style offers big bite and bigger flavors, such as jalapeno made from real peppers and a salt and vinegar chip that "makes you pucker" says Dave West, sales director for the company. Over in the Rockies, kettle-cooked Boulder Canyon chips pair their crunchy bite with artisanal seasonings such as red wine vinegar, spinach and artichoke, and balsamic and rosemary. Down the map in the Southwest, Arizona-based Poore Brothers offers two varieties of kettle-cooked chips with mouth-numbing heat from jalapenos and habaneros. "People in this region really tend to like this pepper, these stronger, spicier flavors," says Steven Sklar, senior vice president of marketing at Phoenix, Ariz.based Inventure Foods Inc., which owns the Boulder Canyon and Poore Brothers brands. "You've got a hard bite with a strong flavor. The combination makes a big difference." While Southerners like spice, industry executives say, the region's traditional chip is thin and flaky. "The southern consumer prefers a lighter, thinner potato chip," says Julie McLaughlin, director of marketing at Birmingham, Ala.-based Golden Flake Snack Foods, which makes Golden Flake Thin & Crispy Potato Chips. The company sells across 10 states in the Southeast, McLaughlin says, and its best-selling chip is Sweet Heat Barbecue, one of five barbecue varieties it makes. Golden Flake also offers a thick-cut, wavy chip, McLaughlin says, "for the transplants." Advances in potato chip making technology and distribution have flattened what may once have been a much wider variety of regional chip preferences, some analysts and executives say. Potato chip making began in the mid-19th Century with mom-and-pop operations in practically any small town with access to potatoes, oil and a kettle to fry them in. Today, the industry uses "chipping potatoes" grown specifically for the purpose, and has developed technology to produce a more uniform chip. Advances in packaging and the emergence of big box chains mean chips now can travel much farther, spreading once local tastes throughout the country. "Through the mass marketers, through Costco and BJs, Walmart, a lot of product that was regional has now become national," says the Snack Food Association's McCarthy. "You can find Utz potato chips in California and before you couldn't."Geography can dictate the flavorsBy MICHELE KAYALAssociated PressSNACKING Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESS

Brought to you by the Monroe County Tourist Development Council WPAArtists captured a time and place now lostThe Key West Art & Historical Society presents Celebrating the Colors of Key West, the art of Jack Baron, and Coping with Depression the WPA Artists in Key West. The exhibit opens Thursday, Aug. 16, from 5:30-7 p.m. and is free to the public. Barons needlepoint tapestries have been on exhibit only once before in his 20year career capturing the people and things he saw around him in Key West. Subjects include conch house architecture, freerange roosters, cats and faces of friends and people he met. Organizers say that Barons work was donated to the Custom House after his death in 2005. His quintessential Key West style makes his art appealing to both tourists and locals. The WPAArtist exhibit is drawn from the Custom House art collection. It represents work done by artists who came to the Keys in the 1930s during the Great Depression. After the 1925 hurricane wiped out the Overseas Railroad, Key West became the poorest city in the nation. As part of the federalCustom House, Art Center open Aug.16LAttitudes StaffKEY WESTStrong women roles,stories imbue The Dixie Swim ClubNorth Carolinas Outer Banks are the setting for the Marathon Community Theatres The Dixie Swim Club, which returns Aug. 23-25 for a second engagement after a successful run in January. The play explores the lives and friendships of five Southern women, all members of a college swim team who meet every August to recharge. And with the Summer Olympics in London, what better time to reprise this topical story and its characters, who tred across a watery landscape of memories and misunderstandings spanning more than three decades? Asynopsis of the story, written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten, sets the stage: As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee. The challenges are many and include men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging. Think of it as the wheel of life remembered (and sometimes forgotten) with stories that intertwine and unravel. Wooten was a writer/producer for many seasons with The Golden Girls. So expect some of the same funny banter found in that award-winning television comedy. The story showcases strong roles for strong women: Sheree, the spunky team captain, desperately tries to maintain her organized and perfect life, and continues to be the groups leader. Dinah, the wisecracking overachiever, is a career dynamo. But her victories in the courtroom are in stark contrast to the frustrations of her personal life. Lexie, pampered and outspoken, is determined to hold on to her looks and youth as long as possible. She enjoys being married over and over and over again. The self-deprecating and acerbic Vernadette, acutely aware of the dark cloud that hovers over her life, has decided to just give in and embrace the chaos. And sweet, eager-toplease Jeri Neal experiences a late entry into motherhood that takes them all by surprise. When fate throws a wrench into one of their lives in the second act, the authors note, these friends proving the enduring power of teamwork rally round their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction. This special return engagement Aug. 23-25 will be a reading of the play, which takes place in the theater gallery. The audience is welcome to sit comfortably in their seats, niggling on tasty treats and sipping beer, wine or soft drinks during the show, said Bonnie Greenberg, general manager. For this production, the gallery will be set up caf style, she added, and there will be a small platform stage along the wall. The cast from the fullscale January production returns for this summer revival, Greenberg said. The Marathon cast for Dixie Swim Club is Christine Harrison (Bernadette, the hard-luck school teacher with a problematic home life); Trish Hentze (Lexie, a youthobsessed man-magnet); Jennifer Powell (Sheree, hyper-organized health nut); Jenn Mixon-EickMarathon cast reprise run Aug.23-25LAttitudes StaffTHEATER Contributed PhotoOn stage during Januarys successful run of The Dixie Swim Clubare cast members Jennifer Mixon-Eick,Laura Hutt,Jennifer Powell,Trish Hintze and Christine Harrison.See MCT,5B Key West artist Jack Barons needlepoint tapestries have been exhibited only once before.

This section of the report will briefly address each for the year July 1st 2011 through June 30, 2012. 1.The Comprehensive Plan objectives and policies have been followed and the city has granted NO land use amendments that would increase the land use density and intensity that would have further burdened the countywide hurricane evacuation plan. 2.There were NO City expenditures for infrastructure in the V-zone that would encourage increased private development. 3.The City of Key Colony Beach Disaster Preparedness Committee, composed of residents and City representatives, coordinates with the County on emergency management activities such as planning, response, recovery, and mitigation. It provides its own public information program, disaster command center, and emergency supplies. We had a countywide hurricane drill in June, and monthly Hurricane Preparedness Meetings. 4.Post-disaster redevelopment is addressed in the Coastal Mana g ement Element g of the Comprehensive Plan, recognizing that redevelopment may require greater building setbacks and elevations, and installation of dunes rather than seawalls. There was no post-disaster redevelopment. 5.The Building Code requires buildings to be designed to withstand the forces of 180 mph winds (assumed in any direction and without regard to the effects of shielding of other structures). In addition all new construction, additions and alterations require: a. double hurricane straps over top member of each roof truss end b. new 3/4"CDX Plywood roof sheathing minimum c. 75% of all exterior walls must be reinforced concrete and reinforced masonry This year these rules and others were enforced and verified on 343 building permits including 2 new dwelling units. 6.Post disaster assessments are required by the Building Department to determine whether demolition versus repairs are appropriate given the level of damage; buildings damaged more than 50% must be rebuilt to current codes. There were no disasters. 7.The Land Development Code requires that all existing mangroves be maintained to state requirements; use of seawalls is restricted; new oceanfront development shall include dune planting plans. Mangroves have been trimmed, no new seawalls have been installed and new dunes and plantings have been installed along an oceanfront property. A ll objectives have been improved upon and further mitigation will be accomplished when funding is available for our small city. Grants are constantly sought. Recent Projects 1.The City has constructed a new reinforced concrete causeway bridge to improve its ability to withstand storm surge. 2.The City has its own sewage collection and treatment system, which is operated by the Wastewater Treatment Plant Operator. The sewage treatment plant is subject to storm surge flooding but has been recently retrofitted and operating at 2012 requirements. A generating system has been added for emergency operation and 30% of our effluent is converted to irrigation through our reverse osmosis and storage system. With the remainder deposited in deep injection wells. All lift stations and lines are continually being retrofitted and monitored for infiltration. 3.The entire City Hall/Post Office complex has been retrofitted and flood proofed to current requirements. 4.Several properties were purchased by the City and converted to open space. 5.The Citys master storm water control project includes swales, retention ponds, and deep injection wells which were designed, installed and monitored by the South Florida Water Management District, FL Department of Environmental Protection, and the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency. A s of this date, the citywide project is approximately 70% complete. The City just completed phase VI on Sadowski Causeway through 11th Street. 6.The entire 3/4 mile of our main entry road, Sadowski Causeway, had all of its utilities transferred from overhead to under ground and has been resurfaced. Future projects include the 100% completion of our stormwater project, wastewater improvements, addition reverse osmosis irrigation, building mitigation and the purchase of additional open space when available. Please see attached documents showing City Commission Report Approval, copy of newspaper legal notice, copy of posting and affirmation by myself, the Building Official, that I personally sat with the LMS Group since its inception and personally prepared this document as required. Please do not hesitate to contact this office if any questions should arise. Sincerely, Edward A.
