The council voted 4-1 to amend city code to include a "dog-friendly restaurants" section that mirrors a 2006 law approved by the state Legislature. Mayor Pete Worthington dissented. Planning Director George Garrett told the council city staff proposed the law because "a number of local restaurants have been cited for allowing dogs within their boundaries." According Department of Business and Professional Regulation spokeswoman Sandi Poreda, inspections are performed twice annually at every restaurant in Monroe County. She said nine were cited or warned for having animals dogs, chickens, pigeons, even fishbowl fish in unauthorized areas in the past six months. Marathon locales found with dogs in unauthorized places were Castaway Restaurant on 15th Street and Roco's Dockside Bar & Grill on Sombrero Boulevard. Dockside owner Tony Piscetello said he was fined $600 while Castaway apparently was given a warning. Mangrove Mama's on Sugarloaf Key received a warning for a having a dog in its dining area last month. And in March, the Galley Grill on Summerland Key was recommended for an "administrative complaint" for having four dogs in the dining area. "April 19 was the day she came and said we have 30 days from there" to fix things, Dockside's Piscetello said, referring to DBPR inspector Ana Olivero. "She came back and there was pretty much no issues. We thought everything was fine until a month and a half after we got a certified packet from the state and they hit us with a $600 fine." Poreda said in an e-mail to the Keynoter that "licensed establishments" with no permit for "doggy dining" could be fined $200 per violation. "The amounts could increase if the establishment continues to be non-compliant," she wrote. Piscetello is appealing his fine. Poreda declined to elaborate on specific questions about whether Olivero has been enforcing the law espe-With apparent crackdown, city passes law allowing them at eateries, barsMARATHONSee Dogs,2ABy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comFALL MEANS FOOTBALL Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWFall's arrival means the sports seasons open at Florida Keys high schools with a flurry of games this week.In a Thursday junior-varsity football game at Coral Shores High School,Hurricane runner Clay Miller (24) tries to elude a tackler from Benjamin School of West Palm Beach on a kick return.The visiting Bucs won,34-8.Utility worker electrocutedAKeys Energy Services worker was electrocuted Thursday night as he worked on the roof of a Big Pine Key home, says the Monroe County Sheriff's Office. Joshua Yarbrough, 28, of Stock Island died at Fishermen's Community Hospital in Marathon shortly after the 7:20 p.m. incident. Keys Energy spokesman Julio Barroso said Yarbrough was part of the duty crew on call, and he and colleague Michael Euliss responded to a "partial power call" on Lundy Lane on Big Pine Key. "Something went tragically wrong when Yarbrough was on the roof of the residence responding to [the] call and working on identifying/repairing the problem," Barroso said. When Euliss saw that Yarbrough was electrocuted, he had the Keys Energy Dispatch Center cut the feeder on Big Pine Key that fed that general area (some residents in BPK lost power momentarily as a result), and began performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation. "I've been told that Euliss did everything as trained and performed heroically," Barroso said. Sheriff's Office deputies had arrived and climbed to the top of the roof, and a bucket truck was used to bring Yarbrough down when rescue units arrived. They brought him to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The investigation continues. Yarbrough was hired June 6, 2005, as an apprentice lineman and was promoted four years later to the day to journeyman lineman. He is survived by his wife Megan.

"We're looking at trap losses of at least 25 percent and maybe 50 percent." The storm's winds from the south did not cause significant damage on shore in the Keys but Isaac left a field of "buoy bouquets" entanglements of trap buoys and lines in its wake in some areas.

Key West hosts St. Brendan on Sept. 7. WKYZ Florida KeysPirateRadioKeyWest.com 96.7 FM 101.7 FM Keys News on the half-hour Daily (M-F) News Director Don Riggs M or nings 7:30 8:30 9:30 A f t er no ons 4:30 5:30 Union, district agreeAfter an 18-month stalemate, the Monroe County School District and the United Teachers of Monroe agreed Thursday on a program to reduce extra-duty supplements paid to Keys teachers. Prior to Superintendent Mark Porter's Aug. 1 start, relations between UTM and the school administration headed by then-Superintendent Jesus Jara were strained at best. That resulted in laborrelated complaints that have reached up to the state's Public Employee Relations Commission, which decides labor disputes between governments and public-employee unions. But meeting all day Thursday in Key West, Porter and UTM President Holly Hummell-Gorman agreed to cut $400,000 from the $1.1 million supplement budget. The extra pay is extended to teachers who earn specific certifications, coach teams, sponsor clubs or undertake additional duties outside their regular teaching jobs. The cut includes a $103,000 savings by eliminating historically unfilled supplements; a $141,000 cut in sixthperiod supplement allocations to schools; a $90,000 reduction via across-the-board supplement cuts; a $36,000 savings realized by adjusting extra-duty pay for juniorvarsity head coaches; and $18,000 saved by getting rid of building-level planning teams. Discussion on Thursday centered largely on how to administer the across-the-board cuts while not detracting from student experiences. Both sides agreed to start by dividing the supplements into two categories: Those that directly affect students and those with an indirect effect. In the former group are coaches, band directors, club sponsors and the like; the indirect group includes things like peer teachers, new-teacher mentors, districtwide teacher leaders and other more internally focused functions. "We do value the work that takes place outside the classroom," Porter said. "There's a lot of good stuff happening here." Of the across-the-board cut concept, Porter said, "What we're trying to do is find a more uniform manner of how to address it rather than some of the other alternatives we thought would create much more inequity and disparity in the system." In a memorandum of understanding HummellGorman and Porter and signed, the direct supplement category will be cut by 5 percent, saving $18,226, while the indirect group will be cut by 13 percent, saving $69,907. For a department head, considered in the indirect group, a $1,380 annual supplement would drop to $1,201. "The rationale," Hummell-Gorman said, "is the adults can change their schedules; they can change the way they communicate and meet and get the work done. "The ones who are directly dealing with the students have the kids there waiting for them after school and they need to be there and be responsible for the lives and learning and everything else that's expected of them." The memorandum will be presented to the School Board for approval when it meets meet Tuesday beginning at 4:30 p.m. at Coral Shores High School in Tavernier.Supplements to be cutMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comDistrict, union: Now friends?Those who play close attention to the Monroe County School District are reading the successful Thursday negotiation between unionized Keys teachers and district officials as the start of a new, less-contentious relationship. The two sides agreed on a way to cut teacher supplements and pay what's left more equitably. Their joint proposal goes to the School Board Tuesday. Noticeably different at the all-day session in Key West was the makeup of the district's bargaining team. Mark Porter, hired on Aug. 1 to take over as superintendent from Jesus Jara, took the lead. Conspicuously absent was the district's no-nonsense labor attorney, Robert Norton. Norton has been a lightning rod for criticism from the United Teachers of Monroe's bargaining team mainly because of his aggressive, take-no-prisoners approach to labor relations. Porter said Norton, "will continue to handle the impasse/impact bargaining matters that remain pending at this time," referring to a Sept. 6 magistrate hearing in Tallahassee over other labor issues. In December 2010, the School Board approved a three-year teacher contract that considered across-theboard raises and the introduction of performance pay. The next year, under the watch of then-Superintendent Joseph Burke, the funding did not materialize so the board had to reverse on the raise and performance pay, and go so far as to implement seven mandatory unpaid furlough days for all employees to cut costs. UTM asserts that was in violation of their contract, whereas the district's position is that the contract doesn't have to be honored if it cannot be funded. The state Public Employee Relations Commission twice found in the district's favor, prompting UTM to appeal the decision to the First District Court of Appeal.Latest talks much smoother than in pastMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Murphy gets a pacemakerMonroe County Commissioner Sylvia Murphy says that despite an unexpected need for a heart pacemaker, "I expect to be back at work Tuesday." Murphy, 76, took an ambulance ride to a Miami-Dade hospital Thursday night that was more a precaution than a necessity. "Right now, my only problem is a massive headache because they won't let me have any food" before an operation to install the pacemaker, Murphy said Friday afternoon. "This has become a routine type of operation," she said. "I expect to be released" tonight. Murphy, a Republican, was unopposed in this year's re-election for her Upper Keys Seat 5 on the County Commission. She filled out a partial term before first winning election to a full four-year term in 2008. "They tell me that when I come back, I'll have twice as much energy," she said. "So watch out." Alongtime volunteer and supporter of the Tavernier Fire-Rescue Department, Murphy said she checked her blood pressure twice within days this week and recognized readings that could mean trouble. Her physician confirmed it and ordered her to the hospital. "I'd still feel on top of the world," Murphy said, "if they'd bring me some food."COUNTY COMMISSIONcially hard of late. Several business owners have made that claim, and it was mentioned during Tuesday's City Council meeting. With passage of Tuesday's law in Marathon, city bars and restaurants must comply with several new requirements for dogs to be allowed. Among them: Applying for and receiving a permit from the city Planning Department. Posting a diagram outlining the designated outdoor area where dogs are allowed, including the number and placement of tables and chairs. Employees are forbidden to "touch, pet or otherwise handle" a dog while serving food or carrying tableware. Dogs are required to be on a leash and under control at all times. They cannot be on tables or chairs. Employees must sanitize all tables and chairs with an approved product between seating of patrons. What remains up in the air is what exactly is considered an outdoor area where pets are allowed. Many Keys restaurants are open air, meaning they're underneath a tiki hut or not enclosed by four solid walls and a roof. "As long as it's outside, I don't know that we're going to be too bent out of shape about it. There may be some oddities about how the place is organized that would make the review of the area an issue," Garrett said. One such restaurant is Porky's Bayside BBQ in Old Town, where customers are known to bring dogs. It's partially enclosed by half-walls, but is completely open air. "As far as I'm concerned, it's totally outside. Somebody may disagree with me on that, but that's my take," Garrett said. Porky's co-owner Barbara Reeve Maddox said she's thrilled to have a law in place where restaurant owners won't have to worry about allowing dogs inside. She said Porky's has never been fined, but has been warned about dogs in the bar area in the past. "We're happy about it for sure. We're an open-air restaurant and it's part of the things that make the Keys unique, to bring your dog out to eat with you," Reeve Maddox said.There are limitsFrom Dogs,1A national attention as a voting-rights advocate by refusing to shorten the number of early voting days for the Nov. 6 election without a federal court order. As it stands, Sawyer is going for 12 days of early voting, eight hours each day. Scott wants eight days of early voting, 12 hours each day. That led Scott to issue a statement hinting he might be inclined to suspend Sawyer from office. Now, the governor is toning down his talk. "My view is the Legislature passed an election law bill. It's up to the federal court" whether it will stand, Scott said on a Wednesday visit to Key West to promote tourism in the wake of Tropical Storm Isaac. "I just want people to go out and vote." Last year, the Republican-controlled Legislature cut the number of early-voting days from 14 to a maximum of eight. Scott signed the bill. Sawyer, like Scott a Republican, maintains that more days rather than fewer days but more hours each day is crucial to getting out the vote especially for minorities. The shorter period became effective in 62 of Florida's 67 counties but not in five so-called "preclearance counties" that require federal approval for voting changes due to past discrimination. The preclearance counties besides Monroe are Hendry, Collier, Hardee and Hillsborough. The elections supervisors in those four counties have tentatively agreed to eight days of 12 hours of early voting.The Scott administration filed a brief in federal court last week asking the judges to approve the eight-day voting window. If they agree, Sawyer would have to go along. "It has been interesting to watch," Scott said during his Keys visit.Scott easesFrom Scott,1ABy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com GETTING IT STRAIGHT KEYSNET.COM Guardsman shot by a colleagueAnational guardsman accidentally shot a colleague Thursday night while examining a loaded revolver in a room at the La Quinta Hotel near the Republican National Convention in Tampa.

Tampa-based consultant Mitch Kessler, making a presentation to the Key West City Commission Wed-nesday, outlined the mechanics of why Key West, with a 7 percent residential recycling rate, is so far behind the statewide average of about 31 percent. The city, which creates around 43,900 tons of garbage annually, pays Waste Management $2.4 million annually for residential pickup and another $3 million per year for transfer and disposal. Commercial businesses working directly with Waste Management pay another $2.5 million each year. The city's collection agreement expires in 2014 and the transport and disposal contract in 2018; both can be terminated with 180 days notice. Kessler and project manager Robin Mitchell listed specific policy recommendations: Hire a full-time recycling program manager. Adopt tiered recycling goals of 25, 40 and then 70 percent. Establish a yard-waste collection and processing program. Get Waste Management to pay for recyclables. Practice what you preach and work with private partners. On yard waste, Kessler said, "That material doesn't need to be disposed of. It needs to be ground up or mulched or made into finished compost." He suggests what's called a "1-1-1" pick-up schedule, with one day each for garbage, yard waste and recycling. The city now has three weekly pickups, two for trash including yard waste, and one for recycling. He said a standard mix of curbside recyclables has a net market value of between $20 and $90 depending on transport and processing costs. "At some point," Kessler said, "you're going to go out for a collection [request for proposals]. If you're going to make changes to this program and go forward with some of these recommendations, you're fundamentally changing the contract with Waste Management." "I believe that their recommendations and their policy statement will get us on the right track to get us to the first tier of 25 percent," city Utilities Manager Jay Gewin said. "Once we get there we can look to the future. We need to walk before we run. We need to get these new policy objectives in place so we can move forward and get off that 7 percent figure." Greg Sullivan, Waste Management's Florida Keys director, said he read Kessler's report as Tropical Storm Isaac passed over the Keys last weekend and said "tomorrow wouldn't be soon enough" to implement the recommendations, which, he added, "will help the city, save the city money and make the city money." Kessler's study cost $379,000 and lasted nearly two years. It was unanimously adopted by commission vote with Commissioner Mark Rossi absent.It doesn't seem realistic anytime soonKEY WESTMore trees coming to U.S. 1The city of Marathon plans to explore the possibility of instituting a uniform building standard similar to other resort towns across the country. The idea is not new, as the U.S. 1 Corridor Task Force in August 2009 presented the City Council with a detailed presentation, chock full of recommendations. At the time, committee members Frank Greenman, Jason Koler, Mike Puto and John "Pops" Stiglitz told the council the city needs more Bahamian or Key West-style architecture, with tin roofs and lively pastel colors along Overseas Highway to entice travelers to stop in Marathon. They identified major issues with height, landscaping, parking, architecture and signage as problems the city must address over a period up to 30 years. But like others before it, not much ever became of the U.S. 1 Corridor Task Force report. Councilwoman Ginger Snead broached the topic during an update from Community Image Advisory Board member Peter Chapman Tuesday evening. He was updating the board on the next round of trees to be installed on the U.S. 1 median from 107th Street to Coco Plum Drive. Chapman told the Keynoter his committee plans to take another look at the 2009 report in the coming months. "We're going to see if there's a way, through incentives or something, that can have an influence on development when it comes back," he said. "We're going to look at the work those guys made and see if there's something the whole council could agree to. We're at least going to take a look at it." City Manager Roger Hernstadt said the topic comes up from time to time, but the council has been hesitant to put restrictions on property owners. "I understand the concept, but we have to be extremely smart about how we do that. People are still trying to recover from the financial [downturn] and we have to be careful putting burdens on people," he said. "Plenty of towns do and plenty don't. We have to analyze all the unintended consequences of doing something like that." Councilman Mike Cinque touched on the subject during Tuesday's meeting, saying he doesn't want to put "stringent design restrictions" on "momand-pop" businesses. "I don't want to make it so difficult on developers or small business owners," he said. Prior to Marathon's incorporation in 1999, a tin-roof, Bahamian/Key West-style theme was adhered to for a time, following the example of the Florida Keys Marathon Airport terminal, which opened in 1994. "We have been talking about this for as long as I can remember. It never took off or got real community support. The businesses like to be somewhat independent," Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay said. "That's what makes this town individual. To tell someone what they should do with their roofs, that's not something I would vote for." Meanwhile, city Public Works Manager Carlos Solis said "in a perfect world," the next round of trees could be planted in the U.S. 1 median by November. Plans call for 135 total trees, including Jamaican capers, pigeon plums and various palm species. The city would also install ground cover from Aviation Boulevard to Coco Plum. Some of those species would be perennial peanut, green island ficus, dwarf firebush and mimosa.Larger issue of aesthetics on the tableMARATHON Tricia has relocated toHair by Martha/Nails by IvisTricias Hours are Mon -8 am Noon Tues, Thurs & Fri8 5 Sat 8 am Noon305-395-2616 305-395-2616or or305-289-1631 305-289-1631 No Appointment NecessaryJust Walk On In! 8903 Ov 8903 Ov er er sea sea s Highw s Highw a a y y Southwind Plaza Southwind Plaza(a (a cross f cross f rom the Fir rom the Fir e Sta e Sta tion) tion) Stop inandSee Me!!

HAPPY LABOR DAY TO ALL. UM prof: Port valuableAU.S. Customs and Border Patrol office at Florida Keys Marathon Airport would cost $1.15 million to construct, according to new architectural estimates done by mbi-k2m Architecture Inc. County Senior Project Management Director Kevin Wilson said that includes literally every aspect of construction, down to desks and other furnishings at the proposed 4,500square-foot facility. "The Customs folks have told us that, If we're going to do a facility at any small airport, we're going to require the owner of the property provide everything.'That means building the space out to their specifications, providing all the furnishings, technology and work stations," he said. But if a study done by Manuel Santos, a well-respected professor and chairman of the University of Miami Department of Economics, is accurate, the benefits could be staggering to the Middle Keys. According to Santos'35page May 14 report, making the Marathon an official port of entry into the U.S. for international travelers would have a $38.7 million annual impact on the local economy. That includes $9.6 million in increased household earnings and the creation of 346.5 jobs. Santos says the industries to benefit from the financial windfall would be food service and drinking places (101 jobs), recreational activities (52), hotel services (51) and transportation (49). County Mayor David Rice has been working with Marathon Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay to see the project through. He plans to put an item for discussion and board approval to begin a request for proposals process on the Sept. 21 commission agenda. The $1.15 million price is significantly higher than originally anticipated, but Rice said the county wouldn't have to spend taxpayer dollars on the project. "Five-hundred thousand dollars to $600,000 could come from federal Depart-ment of Transportation grants [county Airports Director Peter Horton] could bring in. Then $150,000 to $200,000 from local businesses that feel this is an economic boost," Rice said. "The remainder, it appears, will come from facility fees earned" at Key West International Airport. Ramsay urged anyone interested to attend the Sept. 21 monthly commission meeting in Marathon. It's scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. at the Marathon Government Center."It's going to be a real future changer in my opinion," he said.Professor: $38.7M,347 jobs would resultMARATHON Member American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry,Florida Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry American Dental AssociationBig Pine Key 305-872-4272 keysdentist.comGeneral Dentistry done comfortably!

Responding to a recent advisory Parks and Recreation Committee vote to review the project, as well as recent media coverage, the council reiterated it has not OK'd a splash park, merely expressed interest. On July 23, the council give staff the authority to negotiate with Miami-based FHPTectonics Corp. to build the park but made no financial commitment. "We were very specific we did not approve a contract. There's no way we made a decision to move forward," Councilman Mike Cinque said. City Manager Roger Hernstadt concurred: "I wouldn't even call it a first date; I would just call it having lunch together." The splash park would be built on city-owned land adjacent to the city's Community Park in front of the Guidance Care Center. It was purchased for $400,000, with $200,000 coming from a Florida Recreational Assistance Development Grant. The Spottswood Cos. donated another $100,000 through its Faro Blanco resort project. The splash park ended up on the Aug. 21 Parks and Recreation Committee agenda, where the fivemember panel spoke strongly against the project. It also voted unanimously to ask the council to reexamine the decision to consider building a splash park. "At the last meeting, the issue was brought up if there's an ability to re-look at this and see if this is a direction the community wants to go in. Sometimes free money isn't free money; it'll end up costing us more than what free money really is," committee member Luis Gonzalez told the council Tuesday. Hernstadt said he'd produce a full report on the history of the grant and a proposed final design for the splash park. It will "basically be a chronology of the grant and how we came to be where we're at, so if they want to revisit it they can," he said. "If they elect to go forward with the park, here's the relevant facts, costs to staff, operate, whatever." In other business Tuesday: Public Works Manager Carlos Solis said longawaited steel replicas of Sombrero Light six miles off Marathon in the Atlantic could be ready by October. The City Council on Dec. 13 voted to use the replicas in place of boat-themed designs as welcome signs at each end of town. Lifetime Keys resident Larry Herlth is constructing the signs. Herlth said in December that each replica would weigh 400 to 500 pounds and be 4.5 feet wide at the base. The council approved a $41,160 contract with him on April 10. The council reiterated its policy of not responding to time-certain citizen comments at its regular meetings. The policy is in place so council members don't respond to requests or assertions without having the facts before them. At the Aug. 14 meeting, video maker Cliff Rydell requested permission during the 6:30 p.m. comment period to hold a video fest at the Marathon Com-munity Park. He also asked to sell alcohol and that fees associated with the event be waived. The council approved Rydell's Conch Records Music Video Fest for Sept. 8, starting at 11 a.m. It will reportedly feature 40 local musicians. Safe Animal Rescue of the Florida Keys will get the proceeds of alcohol sales. "We were all a little off guard that came up on citizen comments. We're just average Joes and girls up here and we made a mistake," Councilman Mike Cinque said. Residents can call council members to request they get time on the agenda. In that situation, council members can respond.Council hasn't officially said move forwardMARATHONAccused killers due in courtAccused killer Denise Bozarth might return to court Sept. 11 for a pretrial hearing on her first-degree murder charge. Bozarth, 39, has been jailed since March when she was arrested for bludgeoning her husband, Edward, to death in 2007 aboard the Key Largo boat they shared. After her arrest in the Panhandle's Walton County, Bozarth "gave a full confession, admitting to killing her husband," the Monroe County Sheriff's Office said. At a June 12 hearing before Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia, Bozarth filed a written plea of not guilty. She is being represented by the Monroe County Public Defender's Office. Witnesses told investigators that she often discussed ways to kill her husband of nine years. She expected to receive $650,000 that her husband had inherited from his mother, according to Detective Jason Madnick's arrest affidavit. However, that money was never released to her. Bonnie Colon, a former friend of Denise Bozarth, told detectives that Denise often spoke of various ways she might kill Edward, including "making the vessel explode while he was aboard." Another method that Denise Bozarth reportedly outlined to Colon was bludgeoning her husband while he slept, then "wrapping his body in plastic to hide the smell" after the body was hidden in the boat bilge. Madnick noted in arrest documents that is a nearmatch for the way Edward Bozarth died, and the way the body was left. When Edward's body was discovered aboard his boat at Gilbert's Marina in early July 2007, Bozarth had been dead about a week. The body, clad in a bathrobe he often wore to bed, was tied in a fetal position inside a sail bag. Bozarth's head, which was outside the bag, was wrapped in a towel. Air conditioners aboard the boat had been left on the coldest setting. Edward Bozarth was well-known at the marina, where residents said they saw him daily. No one saw him alive after the day Denise Bozarth packed her vehicle and moved to North Florida.Ferro caseIn another hearing scheduled Sept. 11 at the Plantation Key courthouse, Nicholas C. Ferro, 25, has a hearing scheduled in his second-degree murder case. Ferro is charged with stabbing Marquese Butler, 23, of Key West in a fatal brawl during the 2009 Fantasy Fest in Key West. Butler was a former student and athlete at Key West High School. Ferro contends he acted in self defense. In a March trial, a six-member jury failed to reach a unanimous verdict.Bozarth,Ferro have same date before GarciaUPPER KEYS Do you have a birdbath on your property?

The five-member commission unanimously a g reed with the county's Plannin g and Natural Resources Department that the proposed facility would not fit the current buildin g 's suburban/commercial zonin g The buildin g would have to serve the residents in the immediate area to fit the zonin g criteria, the commissioners and county staff said. Frank Greenman, a Marathon attorney for Hoover Property, the developer, and Tob Trickey, Hoover's chief financial officer, both ar g ued Friday that the buildin g would serve the Tavernier area by providin g "special protection." Greenman said he has not decided whether to appeal the Plannin g Commission's decision before a special ma g istrate appointed by the County Commission. The buildin g at mile marker 91.6, is the former home of the Florida Keys Electric Cooperative. The FKEC is now located across the street on the south side of U.S. 1. Hoover bou g ht the buildin g from the FKEC for $1.4 million in 2011. A g ents with two Homeland Security a g encies Immi g ration and Customs Enforcement, and Customs and Border Protection would work from the buildin g The a g encies now work out of a two-story buildin g in the Venetian Shores subdivision on Plantation Key. Greenman said ICE and CBP have out g rown that office, which immi g ration and border patrol a g ents have used since 1986 25 years before the creation of Homeland Security. Friday's meetin g at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center in Key Lar g o was packed with almost 100 residents who oppose the project. They were represented by Tavernier attorney Nicholas Mulick. Mulick ar g ued that for the facility to comply with the buildin g 's current zonin g the public would be allowed to enter freely. But Greenman had already said that the only people allowed inside would be federal a g ents and those under criminal investi gation. Even the interior floor plans for the proposed project are classified by the federal g overnment on a "need-toknow" basis, said Steven Williams, an attorney for the county. Of the more than a dozen residents who spoke out a g ainst the project at Friday's meetin g many objected to the secretive nature of the buildin g and the proposed 6-foottall, metal, "white picket fence" that would surround the front of the 10,000-squarefoot buildin g Despite a wall and fence, Greenman said the facility would not be considered "hi g h-security." Of the five sta g es of security for a federal buildin g Greenman said the buildin g would be a Cate g ory 2 one above a post office. He also reiterated what Hoover representatives have been sayin g since they first pitched the idea to the community last year the buildin g should not be considered a jail or holdin g facility. "There must be somethin g out there that would facilitate this in a more appropriate area," Plannin g Chairwoman Denise Werlin g said. "I just don't think it's the ri g ht fit."Panel concurs with previous county stanceTAVERNIERPeryam case in early sta g eThe dau g hter of Monroe County Sheriff Bob Peryam was released from jail without bond Tuesday after bein g char g ed with felony g rand theft. On Friday, her case had not been assi g ned to a jud g e and an arrai g nment date wasn't set. State Attorney Dennis Ward said Assistant State Attorney Carla Matinata will prosecute 26-year-old Allison Peryam. Peryam, a cashier at Home Depot on North Roosevelt Boulevard in Key West, is accused of stealin g from the store throu g h fraudulent returns. Police officer Michael Mal g rat's report says he was called to the store a little before noon by Loss Prevention Mana g er Gerardo Rodri g uez, who said he was investig atin g employee theft throu g h fraudulent returns and found that Peryam would print copies of customer receipts, then conduct a return transaction with the receipts and keep the money. The transactions happened from Au g 13 to Au g 15 and were for $48.36, $64.49 and $235.42. Asearch of Peryam's purse after her arrest resulted in the discovery of 18 syrin g es and two spoons. Mal g rat wrote that Peryam said "she took the items from a friend's house last ni g ht because they have a problem with dru g s and she had not disposed of the items yet."No arraignment yet scheduled in theft caseKeynoter StaffCRIME FRONTCity ag r ee s to help FIRM e s tabli s h ba s eThe Marathon City Council g ave tentative approval Tuesday to help Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe g ather specific construction information on Middle Keys buildin g s. FIRM Executive Director Annalise Mannix pitched the need for help in an effort to prove to Citizens Property Insurance Corp. that Keys homes are built sturdier than homes in the rest of the state and, therefore, Keys windstorm policy rates should be lowered Accordin g to Mannix, between 2003 and 2011, Citizens earned a g ross profit of $504 million from Keys policyholders. "It does indicate they don't have a lot of losses in Monroe County," she said. Mannix g ave a similar presentation to the one she did before the County Commission on Au g 15, outlinin g what a study of Keys construction entails. She requested support in the form of staff time; the study is expected to cost as much at $350,000. The council made a similar pled g e as the County Commission did, a g reein g to have city staff collect a sample of the necessary information to see how much time is involved. It will require data on thousands of individual properties. "That way, they could analyze what the cost would really be," Mannix said. "It is a si g nificant amount of staff time, but it's somethin g we need to move ahead with this pro g ram." Gov. Rick Scott has mandated that Citizens, the state's insurer of last resort and the primary insurer in the Keys, drop nearly half its 1.5 million policies statewide. "We a g ree that they need to do that to remain functional and pay out when the time comes," Mannix said. But she added that parts of that plan are havin g an immediate effect in Monroe, includin g : A$1 million cap on the value of a home for which Citizens would provide windstorm insurance. Awide-ran g in g reinspection pro g ram searchin g for safety deficiencies. Denyin g windstorm insurance to homes intended to be rented out for seven days or less. Elimina-tin g builder's risk insurance on new construction. City Mana g er Ro g er Hernstadt said he's confident staff can provide FIRM with whatever data it needs. "We can g enerate any report of any type to meet FIRM's needs to help them make this case on our behalf," he said.Staff time to be given for studyWINDSTORM INSURANCE 11050 Overseas Hwy., Marathon, FL33050 JOSH MOTHNER(305) 942-9519 12399 O/S Hwy, Slip 23 Marathon Open 7 Days AWeek I LISTED & SOLD THIS BOATSLIP AT THE BOATHOUSE MARINA in Marathon!

Call me to find out how. tend to place their oceanside traps in deeper water off the ed g e of the reef due to no-trappin g areas closer to shore, he said. It is ille g al to trap lobster inside Ever g lades National Park waters, which encompass most of Florida Bay. "We're still g ettin g assessments" from the Middle and Lower Keys, Kelly said. Some bayside trappers in the Marathon area reported only minimal dama g e. One fishermen checked a line of 200 traps and found only three had been moved "a few feet." The Fishermen's Association has contacted state and federal representatives to be g in seekin g a small-business disaster declaration so the fishermen can obtain lowcost loans to recover, Kelly said. "We are workin g very closely with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission so they know we may have to pull multiple traps at the same time, and so they can keep watch for trap robbers," Kelly said. The re g ular trap season has been open for less than a month.SnapperIn another commercial-fishin g issue, federal fishery mana g ers said Monday that fishin g for yellowtail snapper may be halted Sept. 11 because annual catch limits will have been reached. About 90 percent of Florida's commercial hook-and-line yellowtail catches come from the Keys, g eneratin g about $2 million annually, accordin g to the Fishermen's Association.

Jason R. Kroenin g 34, was arrested on a sin g le count of tryin g to obtain controlled substances throu g h fraud. Kroenin g reportedly visited several doctors for treatment of a kidney problem but lied to them in order to obtain prescriptions for oxycodone and other controlled narcotics. One pharmacist told Monroe County Sheriff's Office investi g ators that records show in a sevenweek period in April and May, Kroenin g apparently acquired a 141-day supply of dru g s by visitin g six different pharmacies. When Kroenin g visited the doctors, he didn't reveal he already had received painkiller prescriptions. On occasion, he requested new prescriptions by sayin g he did not pick up previous prescriptions. Aurolo g ist, who confirmed that Kroenin g does have kidney problems, alerted a pharmacy in May not to fill a newly issued prescription because the doctor learned of discrepancies in Kroenin g 's statements. That led to an investi g ation that found Kroenin g was seein g several doctors. "All the practitioners or doctors ...stated that they prescribed Jason Kroenin g with a controlled substance but would not have done so if they had known about other prescriptions ... from another physician," says an arrest affidavit.

Opinion & EditorialSaturday,September 1,2012 Florida Keys Keynoter 8A Photo courtesy FLORIDA STATE ARCHIVESThis is the Long Key post office in 1909.Long Key was a thriving fishing village back then a true fishing destination so the post office was a central part of life.Long Key still has a post office,but it's perhaps the least-use utilized one in the Keys because the Long Key area isn't nearly as populated as other areas of the Keys.CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALTime running out on budgetLETTERS TO THE EDITORGastesi should stayRe: The grand jury report on the theft of Monroe County-owned iPhones and iPads: The grand jury had it right when it said that anyone buying "i-stuff" at a cheap price for cash with no receipts or warranty information must or should know something is wrong. One of my sons, as a teenager, was severely admonished when he came home with new expensive speakers that he had literally bought from the back of an open truck for a minimal amount. He obviously bought them as stolen property, and in a Utopian society, if people were honest enough to not buy the hot items, there would be no theft or at least a lot less. Something about supply and demand... That being said, we must take a look at Roman Gastesi's record as county administrator. By most accounts, he has been the best in that position in recent memory and while actually reducing the budget in these difficult times, he has tried several new means to implement cost savings to the taxpayers. He has been a bright spot as the head of Monroe government while being accessible and transparent with the public. To my knowledge, he manages without ego, with fairness and an evenhanded what's-best-for-the-taxpayer common-sense logic. Granted, punitive action should taken by our commissioners, something on the order: Aletter in his file with the understanding that any other offense in the future will result in termination. Perhaps a monetary fine, if legal, paid to a local charity. Return of all items in question. We've all had our shortcomings at one time or another, but we try to keep them to a minimum. I trust this has been one of life's lessons for him and expect him to be better as a result. So with all of this in mind, I implore our county commissioners to try to invoke a Solomonish conclusion that is fair and beneficial to all concerned. Mr. Gastesi is still a valuable asset to Monroe County and its taxpayers. I hope he's allowed to continue. Bob Thomas Key LargoDon't cut band moneyI am writing as concerned band parent of a student that graduated from Coral Shores High School in 2010. It has been brought to my attention that the stipend for the band and color guard directors is under revision for possible elimination altogether. I fear that this would be a grave mistake. Although budget cuts weigh heavily on your minds, I feel that they should be levied at areas that will not affect a student's rounded education. The band activities, the camaraderie and the very excellent direction that have inspired and motivated all individuals involved (students, faculty, volunteers and parents) have had a long lasting effect on many students'lives. My wife and I are witnesses of the profound influence the band experience had on our daughter not only in Coral Shores but also currently, in her development and different stages of college life. Band director Robert Sax's dedication has had a great effect on the kids that have gone through the band program. In his own special ways, he has taught them the value of team work, the importance of striving to excel whilst respecting each other and being proud of who they are. He has been a true friend and guiding figure in their early development, qualities that together are not easily found in all teachers. His generous devotion of time and continuous search for resources to attain the success that the band has achieved is unparalleled. He has managed to connect with students, faculty and parents at all levels. Education is not only in the books and in the classrooms, but also in the preparation for what is to follow after graduating from Coral Shores. The life lessons acquired as a member of the marching band are invaluable experiences for dealing with life's challenges ahead. Are we not here to help educate and prepare our children? As parents and/or teachers, is it not our goal to give them the tools to deal with what they will encounter in the future? The marching band program does just that, so I can only ask the School Board to please reconsider and give it its full support by backing the stipends allocated to both its directors. Andy Watkins. Key Largo Editor's note: Thursday, School District officials and the United Teachers of Monroe came to agreement on re-evaluating how stipends are dis tributed.Parties need to get together to avoid racing off fiscal cliffLast week, just in time for the conventions of the nation's two major political parties, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office sent a message that significantly raises the stakes regarding the fiscal crisis looming at the end of the year. If Congress takes no action to stave off tax increases and automatic budget cuts scheduled to take effect on Jan. 1, the CBO declared, the economy could plunge into a recession. Reading between the lines, it's clear the CBO believes there's no "could" about it bet on a recession and all its accompanying miseries if Congress doesn't take action to stop the upcoming disaster. The customary summer report of the CBO predicted the jobless rate would remain above 8 percent for the rest of the year because it's too late to do anything about that, and that the federal budget deficit for the year that ends Sept. 30 would be $1.1 trillion. That's nothing to cheer about. But what's coming up at the end of the year the so-called fiscal cliff is even worse. Under law, if Congress and the president can't come up with a fix, unemployment would rise almost a full point from the current 8.3 percent to 9 percent. Total economic output would shrink at an alarming rate 2.9 percent in the first half of the year. The fiscal cliff is the result of the stop-gap budget deal Congress and President Obama reached last year in order to avoid another crisis and allow the government to pay its bills. It mandates serious belt-tightening in the form of government spending, including expenditures in defense and public services that would be felt right away by many Americans. At the same time, new tax increases would come into play as the Bush tax cuts expire. Predictably, the CBO's warning set off the usual round of finger-pointing and stale rhetoric. Republicans in Congress said the report points up the urgency of preventing all tax increases, including for those families earning more than $250,000 a year. Democrats said the report underscores the need for Congress to make a sensible budget deal that allows the middle class to keep existing tax rates, while those earning higher salaries would have to pay more. Lawmakers have to decide. They can allow current policy to go into effect, which means tax increases for everyone and spending cuts that would reverse the recovery. Or they can cancel the upcoming cuts and tax increases, which would increase the deficit. Neither makes sense. The only practical alternative is for the parties to sit down like adults and hammer out a pragmatic plan that spreads the pain evenly and offers future deficit reduction and economic growth. But there's not much time left to make a deal.

Rhyne was one of numerous property owners that sought to cash in on the "condotel" boom in the early in mid-2000s, getting approval for 22 units that would be twoand three-bedroom suites. The council on Tuesday agreed to amend his agreement to allow 20 additional rooms on the site, for a total of 42. Rhyne plans to construct oneand two-bedroom units along a 2.9-acre strip of his property along Dodge Lake. Like many other proposed developments during early 2000s, Rhyne was unable to move forward when the economy went south. "Here we are all ready to get started and a recession hits," he said. "To borrow money in 2006 and 2007 [was] easy. From late 2007 until now, just about impossible." Rhyne said the addition of 20 units would make the project viable to lenders. "At 42 units, you can operate a larger boutiquestyle hotel and marina that has a lot of efficacy. With the [rest of the] property on U.S. 1, I can use the overflow from one to benefit the other. At some point we'll develop that one also," he said, referring to a separate area of his resort. Rhyne is the third hotelier to request additional hotel rooms since the city of Marathon was awarded at least 100 new transient rental units by the state Cabinet in January. Pritam Singh's Tranquility Bay Resort property requested 16, while the Spottswood Cos. Faro Blanco Resort project requested 25. The city will not charge for the units, but has been clear that any development agreement amendment does not equal a vested right to any of them. Rhyne said he'll likely seek his share, but has other to transfer from his own hotel property. One Gulfstream Boulevard resident voiced concern Tuesday about the effect Rhyne's redevelopment could have on her two properties across the canal. She pointed out that Rhyne has people living full-time in cottages along the water and in RVs near the rear of the property. There are two RVs, one in which Rhyne houses a maintenance man in and another being stored by a friend. He said he plans to remove them, but only put the first trailer there to prevent locals from partying on the waterfront point at the rear of his property. Neighbors often complain about the loud music, bonfires and even fireworks being set off there, Rhyne said. "Over the past however many years I've gotten constant complaints of stuff going on down there at the point. I've tried to address it many times," he said. "I've had zero complaints there this summer since I've had somebody living down there fulltime." As for the seven cottages and 18 efficiency apartment at the rear of the property, Rhyne said they'd be gone as part of any new development. He said they're dated and require constant maintenance.Coconut Cay redevelopment back on trackMARATHON Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYThese cottages,along with 18 efficiencies at the Coconut Cay Resort & Marina,would be removed if owner Jim Rhyne moves forward with a planned 42-unit redevelopment at the Marathon property.By RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com
Do you work with someone who is passive-aggressive? It used to be called being two-faced or backstabbing agreeable to your face and something else entirely when you weren't around. How do you recognize that type of behavior and what can you do about it? Most passive-aggressive personalities appear to be charming, rarely demonstrate anger and are almost always agreeable. Unfortunately, there is a big disconnect between how they appear and how they behave. Apassive-aggressive person often blames others for his or her own shortcomings, takes credit for work someone else has performed and argues about seemingly unimportant matters. He or she hides annoyance, impatience or resentment behind a calm and happy facade. They might also be master procrastinators, and pretend to not see, hear, remember or understand requests. Apassive-aggressive person will often give you the silent treatment, becoming sulky and withdrawn. They love to gossip as a way to express their anger and hostility. Here's what to do if you have someone like this in your life: Learn to recognize the passive-aggressive behavior. Confront the behavior. Passive-aggressive people avoid directly expressing their feelings or acknowledging their anger. In a nonjudgmental way, tell him or her, "This conversation seems to be making you angry" or "I get the feeling you're upset by this request." Expect denial, and accept it. The other person will deny anger. Say, "All right. I just wanted to let you know how it appears to me." Don't argue, because you won't win. Be friendly but avoid getting too personal. Apassive-aggressive co-worker will talk about you behind your back. Take notes. If this is a work situation, write down all important information of the conversation. If anything goes wrong, a passiveaggressive co-worker will throw you under the bus. Be sure you have something in writing to support your position. Keep calm. Passiveaggressive co-workers can be incredibly frustrating. Getting under your skin gives them a sense of power. Don't lose your temper or respond to personal attacks because that's also a favored behavior. Keep your head in the face of passive-aggressive behavior, and you'll feel more in control of the situation and yourself. Demand honesty. If your co-worker is lying, call him or her on it in a calm, collected fashion. Don't get sidetracked into alleys that will turn into a verbal fistfight of he said/she said. This is where having notes comes in handy. Talk with your supervisor. Remember, passiveaggressive people love to pass the buck and will try to dump their errors in your lap. Let your supervisor know about your coworker's behavior and performance. But don't get emotional about it. One of the worst things you can do is tell your boss that your colleague is a lazy, shiftless, SOB even if he or she is. Instead, describe the actions and behaviors that lead you to that conclusion and let your boss come to his or her own conclusions. Say, "She missed five deadlines" or "He has asked me 10 times to explain this task." Be sure you have all these documented. Don't be afraid to defend others against a passive-aggressive co-worker's gossip or personal attacks. Tell him, "I don't listen to gossip" and walk away.

The Charlotte, N.C.,based bank, secondlargest in South and Central Florida, said this week it will no longer reanimate closed accounts that somehow through error or an oversight by customers, vendors or creditors continue to receive automated electronic transactions. Consumer advocates have criticized the practice, saying it often imposes expensive maintenance or overdraft fees on unaware former customers. The threat of such fees also deters some customers from changing banks, they said. Citing customer feedback, bank officials said the change in policy took effect this week after a review that began late last year. "As always, we remind customers to allow time for outstanding items to clear the account, and make changes to automatic payments and credits before closing the account," spokeswoman Betty Riess said. Consumers Union, the publisher of Consumer Reports, called it a "victory for consumers." "I think they saw the handwriting on the wall," said Susanne Martindale, a staff lawyer for Consumers Union. "I'm sure they've been doing a cost-benefit analysis of the time it takes for their representatives to defend this practice to upset consumers. And, finally, they figured out it just wasn't worth it." In a survey earlier this year, Consumers Union found that BofA and Chase Bank were the only large banks to have such a reanimation policy. The consumeradvocacy organization hopes Chase will follow BofA's lead in abandoning it, Martindale said. She noted that consumers still face obstacles that make switching banks a "time-consuming mess." Consumers Union has called on the new federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to adopt reforms that would eliminate such obstacles. Look closely at most checking-account agreements and you'll find provisions that require the customers to take certain actions whenever they close an account, said Rod Jones, an Orlando banking lawyer. Large banks just don't want to deal with the costs or "administrative headache of chasing down former customers" if there's an issue with an old account, Jones said. "For a smaller bank, that may not be as much of a challenge, since they usually have greater familiarity with their clientele and could more easily reach them to get to the bottom of the problem," Jones said. Bank of America is the second-largest bank in South Florida by deposits, after Wells Fargo. It had $24.5 billion in deposits, representing a 15.5 percent market share, as of June 30 last year, according to the latest data available for the area from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

More than 50 Key West High School swimmers and about 15 from Marathon High packed the deck and two small grandstands overflowed with spectators. The new season was about to begin. Red and white car-lotlike pennants stretched above the eight lanes of turquoise sun-dappled water. The teams stood together and sang the national anthem. Sno-Cones were sold. Bathing caps, with their rubbery smell, were snapped on the heads of the fresh-faced, ready-to-shine competitors. Shirtless up on the lifeguard stand was Judd Wise, the Conchs'assistant coach, ready to shout, "You gotta stroke! You gotta stroke!" The 24 events of this decidedly friendly meet began to unfold, each after a whistle blown by Conchs coach Lori Bosco. Just before the eighth, the boys 50-yard freestyle, the Conchs'T.J.

Three times, Miami Country Day held serve, sweeping the three-game match in Tavernier by the minimum six-point total, 28-26, 25-23, 25-23. "We took Country Day, a pretty solid team, into extra points in the first game and lost by six points total," Canes head coach Andy Thiery said. "We need to get better but it's not a bad start." The Canes ran out to a 6-2 lead in the opening game but missed serves and occasional coverage breakdowns on the floor proved costly. Setter Ellie Leopold delivered 10 serving points for the Canes in the opening game and closed with 23 assists in the match against Country Day (11). "I thought we passed well and moved the ball better than we did" in winning the All-Keys Preseason Tournament over Marathon High School and Key West High School, Thiery said. "There were some earlyseason mistakes but most of them were aggressive mistakes," he said. "I'll take that." On the front wall, veteran Laura Irwin delivered 11 kill shots. Amanda Ruano stepped up with six blocks and four kills. Coral Shores was scheduled to play Archbishop Carroll on Friday (results pending at press time). An Aug. 28 game against LaSalle was postponed because of Tropical Storm Isaac. Coral Shores travels to Archbishop Curley on Tuesday, then hosts district rival Gulliver Prep at 5:30 p.m. Friday.ICS tops Cane JVIsland Christian School's varsity volleyball club rallied to defeat the Coral Shores JVin Thursday's best-of-three match decided by a tiebreaker game, 11-25, 25-7, 16-14. "We had some first-game jitters," said ICS coach Sheryl Yost. "We are glad for a first win." The Lady Eagles played their first match after a preseason tournament fell victim to Isaac. After a shaky opening game, Skyler DeMoss served 11 straight ICS points in the second-game win. ICS co-captain Jesse Ledwith played well at the net and served effectively, Yost said. "Everyone got to play, from our veterans to newbies," Yost said. "They are a young team overall. I know they will improve as the season progresses and I hope they have fun along the way."

It was the Conchs'opening match of the season and their first under new coach John Moeller. "For the first time out, I liked what I saw," Moeller said. DeRoche tied for low individual score with Gulliver Prep's Ray Boone and Frederico Daunert. Gulliver won the match with a 148, followed by Ransom Everglades (161), Key West (166), Palmer Trinity (180) and Westminster Christian (181). The other Conch scorers were junior Elliot Azari (40), junior Scott Brown (43), junior Trevor Pike (47), senior Manuel Costello (48) and sophomore Chase Renner (48). The top four scores count for the team total. "The big surprise was our No. 5, Scott Brown," Moeller said. "Our three and four players have got to get better."

They are marketing consultant Nikki Dunn, John Emery of Lower Keys Medical Center, Maria Jones of the Florida Keys Electric Cooperative, John Spain of Keys Event Management and Ron Smith of Hawks Cay Resort. The United Way of the Florida Keys is a nonprofit that helps fund 18 other nonprofits Keyswide. Those 18 provide critical services such as food for the poor and childhood development. Money raised in the Keys stays in the Keys. In the coming months, board members will visit businesses and up and down the islands to give presentations about payroll deductions for the United Way and where those deductions go. Already, some 2,000 Keys workers donate to the United Way. "Employees who donate $5 per pay period make a huge difference because your gifts are matched by state, corporate and foundation grants, some 16:1," United Way President Margie Smith said. "Collectively across the Keys, this adds up to funding for 18 life-changing programs in our focus areas of access to nutritious food, and early childhood and youth development. Our board chose these two critical issues where we knew we could move the needle supporting strong, working families in the Keys."

"We had no idea 25 years ago when we started these tournaments just how many remarkable strides would be made increasing the life expectancy of young CF sufferers," said Gary Ellis, "especially now with the most promising ones through gene research." He and his wife Susan are preparing for the 23rd annual Robert James Sales S.L.A.M. Celebrity Tournament in Key West Sept. 7 to 9. It kicks off the annual Keys Redbone trilogy, which includes the 22nd Baybone in Key Largo Oct. 5 to 7 and the 25th annual Redbone Nov. 2 to 4 in Islamorada, which started the series and was the genesis of 26 other tournaments across America. S.L.A.M. (Southernmost Light Tackle Anglers Master) celebrities include baseball Hall of Famer Wade Boggs, NASAastronaut Bruce Melnick, former Denver Bronco Mark Cooper and former jai alai star Joey Cornblit. They, along with other celebs, guides and anglers, will pursue permit, bonefish and tarpon, a trio of elusive shallow-water game fish, earning points in fly, artificial and bait categories. The DoubleTree Grand Key Resort on South Roosevelt Boulevard in Key West is the host hotel with registration, a reception and live and silent auctions on Sept. 7. It's also the setting for the Sept. 9 awards banquet at 7 p.m. Preceding the S.L.A.M. is the Superfly, a one-day, one-fly competition for the same trio of fish. The Sept. 6 registration is set for 6 p.m. at the Hurricane Hole Restaurant & Marina, mile marker 4.5 oceanside. The Superfly is slated for Sept. 7, with an awards ceremony beginning at 5 p.m. The Hurricane Hole is also the site for the 3 to 5 p.m. dockside parties after the S.L.A.M. fishing on Sept. 8. Fishing is from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and on Sept. 9, it's from 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The S.L.A.M.'s entry fee is $3,500 for a two-angler team or $3,000 for an angler to fish with a celebrity. It includes two days of charter fees with a professional guide. The entry fee for the Superfly is $350 per angler that also fishes the S.L.A.M., or $500 per angler if not. The Redbone began in 1988 by the Ellises as a grassroots effort to help people like their daughter Nicole, who have CF. With help from baseball legend Ted Williams and his celebrity friends to attract anglers, $16,000 was raised that first year. The Redbone series has since raised more than $16 million for scientists and researchers at the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. "Medical scientists are making amazing advancements with gene research," Gary Ellis said. "Not only did it lead to isolating the CF gene, but it also paved the way for the discovery of the genes for sickle cell anemia, Huntington's disease and many others. New CF drug research has helped improve lung function and add a little more time for patients. It's remarkable how far they've come, but there's still no cure and our tournaments continue in full force to help them."

Will Wolfe won the 100 backstroke in 1:11 and Aaron Grube won the 500 free in 6:36. (The only other Dolphin boy, Colin Marrs, was third in the 50 free and fourth in the 100 free.) Grube, a sophomore who's been swimming for Marathon since he was in the seventh grade, looked like he had gotten a lot bigger since last year. "That's what they tell me," he said, before going over to greet his little band of supporters. Individual Key West winners were Story Magidson (200 free), Michelle Konik (200 individual medley and 100 breaststroke), Mikayla Schlegel-Boraas (100 butterfly), Jadene Olsen (500 free) and Jordan Henry (100 back). Other Conch boy winners were Kai Murphy (200 free), Chris Bujak (200 IM and 100 fly) and Marcus Grissom (100 breast) Marathon's Markie Sandusky, Abi Connell, Abby Grace and Woodbury combined to win the 200 and 400 free relays. Key West won the 200 medley relay with Alice Tallmadge, Konik, Henry and Osterhoudt. It was almost dusk when the meet ended with the Key West team of Bujak, Trevor Helms, Murphy and Allen winning the boys 400 free relay (against three other Conch teams) in 3:56.

"I was really hoping we had ... a fifth [player], but I'm kind of happy. They'll have to play well and stay focused; not let one bad shot affect the rest of the round." Pierce was the team's No. 1 player a year ago. He and McKeon will be the team's top two players. Freeman said they're capable of shooting in the "high 30s to low 40s" over nine holes. Rodriguez and Logan can score in the 40s, Freeman said. While not in the starting four, senior junior varsity player David Pillius could see playing time on the varsity team. The Dolphins were spending a good amount of time on the range before Tropical Storm Isaac drenched the Keys last weekend. Range time has been difficult to come by in recent years due to inclement weather. Marathon is scheduled to play six of its 11 matches at Sombrero, and four of five at the Biltmore Hotel course in Coral Gables. The Biltmore is typically the site of the District-1Atournament each year. "Besides Miami Country Day, they're all at Biltmore. They're used to that course and they know all about it. That'll help us out," Freeman said.

Saturday,September 1,2012 3B Keynoter KeysNet.com Be comfortable while being greenDearEarthTalk: Are there certain brands or retail stores where sustainable furniture options can be had? And what should I look for when shopping for greener furniture? W. Cary, Trenton, N.J. While we now opt often for greener cars, appliances, household cleaners and food to up the sustainability quotient of our lifestyles, the furniture we spend all day and night in close contact with is often far from eco-friendly. The vast majority of sofas, chairs, beds and other upholstered furniture we love to lounge on contain potentially carcinogenic formaldehyde and/or toxic flame retardants and stain resistors that have been linked to developmental and hormonal maladies. And much of the wood used in desks, chairs, tables and the like (as well as in the frames of upholstered furniture) comes from unsustainably harvested lumber, which contributes to the deforestation of tropical rainforests. But today, thanks to increased consumer awareness and demand, there are more green choices in furniture available than ever before. Agood place to start the search for that perfect couch or chair is the website of the Sustainable Furniture Council, a nonprofit formed in 2006 to help develop solid standards and certification processes within the home furnishings industry. The organization has become a leading information source and network of some 400 green furniture makers and related retailers, suppliers and designers as well as other nonprofits. Consumers looking for greener furniture can browse SFC's membership list, which features contact information and website links accordingly. Buyers beware: Just because a furniture maker is listed with SFC doesn't mean it eschews all chemicals or unsustainably harvested wood entirely, but only that it is making strides in that direction. Consumers should still be knowledgeable about which green features they are looking for and/or which kinds of materials to avoid. Of course, with something like furniture, you really need to see and feel it in order to decide whether it will work in your space. Eco-conscious consumers making the rounds at local furniture stores should keep a few key questions in mind for salespersons. Does the piece in question contain formaldehyde, flame retardants or stain resistant sprays? Is the fabric used certified under the Global Organic Textile Standard program, which mandates that at least 70 percent of fibers are derived from organic sources and do not contain chemical dyes or other additives? Is the wood used certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) as sustainably harvested? Does the piece contain any parts or pieces that come from bamboo or reclaimed wood or recycled metal or plastic? And is it easy to disassemble into reusable or recyclable parts if it needs to be replaced down the line? If the salesperson doesn't know the answers, chances are the piece does not pass environmental muster. Limiting your search to brick-and-mortar and Internet-based retailers that specialize in green products is one way to reduce the amount of research and selfeducation needed, especially because salespersons in such stores are usually up to speed on the latest and greatest in sustainable furnishings.

The clinic at mile marker 91.5 oceanside is the only nonprofit clinic in Monroe County that provides free health care to qualified homeless and uninsured low-income residents of the Upper Keys. The clinic relies solely on grants and donations from the public and private sectors. Between January and June, staff says, the clinic provided more than $208,000 in free prescriptions and well over $1 million in medical services. Clinic staff says they've recently seen a 49 percent increase in their patient qualification numbers, which equates to 50 to 60 new patients a quarter. As part of this years' campaign, the volunteer event committee will have a live and silent auction during the second annual Big Kahuna Beach Luau, to be held at the Islamorada Hampton Inn and Suites on Sept 29.

His wife Nancy is by his side.Is Mars rover Armstrong redux?Neil Armstrong inspired millions with his moonwalk. Can a feisty robotic rover exploring Mars do the same for another generation? With manned missions beyond the International Space Station on hold, the spotlight has turned on machines. While it did not rise to Armstrong's "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind," interest was so high in the rover Curiosity's "seven minutes of terror" approach to the red planet in early August that NASA's website crashed after receiving nearly 2 billion hits. The rover last week beamed home photographs of its first wheel tracks on the Martian soil since its daredevil landing "There's something exciting about reaching another place in the solar system. If you think about the kind of interest the landing of Curiosity had, you get a sense of that," said Smithsonian Institution space curator Roger Launius. It wasn't on the same level as Armstrong's feat, "but it was pretty darn exciting," he said. When Armstrong, then fellow astronaut Buzz Aldrin, stepped on the moon on July 20, 1969, an estimated 600 million people watched and listened. "Virtually the entire world took that memorable journey with us," Aldrin recalled after Armstrong's death last Saturday. Early in the Space Age, the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo astronauts were the public face of NASA's space endeavor while the unmanned lunar missions that paved the way were in the shadows. The public craved adventure and the manned missions delivered. Aiming for the moon was new and exciting not to mention dangerous and the U.S. was locked in a Cold War space race with the Soviets. Next, the space shuttle ferried a new crop of astronauts to low-Earth orbit, but after three decades of service, it became routine. And the Cold War thawed with the Russians and Americans cooperating on the Russian space station Mir and the International Space Station. With the space shuttle fleet retired, the space station is all that's left. Its crew of six for the most part quietly goes about doing its job about 250 miles above the Earth. President Obama nixed plans for returning astronauts to the moon in favor of landing on an asteroid and eventually Mars. These days, space exploration is carried out by robotic spacecraft commanded by human handlers on Earth. Advances in technology have allowed unmanned spacecraft to go farther and peer deeper, with craft circling Mercury, Saturn, asteroid Vesta and others headed for Jupiter and dwarf planet Pluto. The twin Voyager craft are still going strong at the fringes of the solar system 35 years after their launch in 1977.Robots leadAmerican University space policy analyst Howard McCurdy said today's generation of explorers was raised on technology and tends to get more jazzed about delivering a car-size rover to Mars. "Robotic exploration has taken more of a center stage," he said. "It gets more publicity now than the International Space Station." When the first Mars rover Sojourner landed in 1997, science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke rephrased Armstrong's famous line and said the event was "one small step for the rover." Three other rovers have followed including Curiosity, which landed Aug. 5 by executing an intricate routine that ended with it being lowered by cables to the surface. Curiosity's acrobatics proved so popular that its Twitter followers surged from 120,000 the eve of landing to more than a million (the tweets are being written by the public affairs office at the NASAJet Propulsion Laboratory, which manages the $2.5 billion mission.) Curiosity chief scientist John Grotzinger said Monday the wheel prints on Mars may turn out to be an iconic image just like those first boot prints on the lunar surface. "Instead of a human, it's a robot pretty much doing the same thing," he said. Henry Lambright, a professor of public policy and space scholar at Syracuse University, said while Curiosity is inspiring, the world still needs to send humans beyond lowEarth orbit.Can't inspire'"It can't inspire to the degree that Apollo did because a robot can't inspire the way a man can," Lambright said. On Monday, NASA played a recording from Administrator Charles Bolden that had been sent up to the rover on Mars and relayed back to Earth. In it, he thanked scientists and engineers for their achievement. David Lavery of NASA headquarters said the hope is that someone will be inspired by Bolden's message and become the first human to stand on Mars. "Like the great Neil Armstrong, they'll be able to speak aloud the first person at that point, of the next giant leap in human exploration," he said.Breakthrough not the same, some contendAssociated PressSPACE EXPLORATION LIVING BRIEFSCommotion by Ocean tonightWhat's called the Commotion by the Ocean kids'boxing competition takes place tonight at the Key West Police Athletic League gym at the Truman Waterfront at the end of Southard Street.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4B Saturday,September 1,2012 The Voice starcoming to Key WestVocal powerhouse, Beverly McClellan, who rose to fame as a finalist on NBCs The Voice, will headline the 13th Annual Pearls Cocktail Party and WomanKind Fundraiser with her unique brand of blues, rock and folk on Thursday, September 6 in Key West during Womenfest. This performance will be a bit of a homecoming for McClellan, who toured clubs and bars in South Florida for over 20 years and did shows at Pearls before catching Americas attention with her rousing rendition of Piece of My Heart during the first round of The Voice. Her solid stage presence and unique look a bald head and multiple tattoos created additional buzz and was fodder for much water cooler talk the next day. She also caught the attention of industry veteran, Christina Aguilera, who became her coach throughout the season. Pearls owner, Heather Carruthers, said that she was thrilled to see McClellan make it so far on The Voice but thought that she should have won. People loved her when she performed here before The Voice, and I always wondered why she didnt have a bigger career, Carruthers said. She is an incredible musician and a very talented instrumentalist with a fabulous voice. She also has that ability to genuinely deliver a song with truly honest performances. After the television show wrapped, McClellan went on to tour with B.B. King and is now on a hectic North American and European tour with guitar virtuoso, Steve Vai. She also collaborated with Vai on the traditional gospel and blues song, John the Revelator, which is on his 16th solo album, The Story of Light. Vais interpretation samples the 1930 recording by Blind Willie Johnson with McClellan providing the stirring vocals. In a phone interview from Asheville, NC where she was slated to play at the Orange Peel later that night, McClellan said that shes excited to come back to Key West both to perform and relax. I lived in Fort Lauderdale, so I would come down to Key West quite a bit, she said. Im really looking forward to relaxing with my friends. They are coming down from Ft. Lauderdale, and its going to be awesome. Im going to make sure to see the beautiful sunset. She also anticipated that many of her early fans, who she stays in touch with through Twitter andPlays Pearls in Sept.6 benefit concertBy Claudia MillerLAttitudes ContributorKEY WEST Beverly McClellan performs at Pearls Womankind FundraiserWonderful artistry defines this animated filmParaNorman, rated PG, 93 min., now playing nationwide This new animated comedy uses stop-motion and very effective 3D techniques to bring to life a tale of witches, zombies, ghosts and out-ofcontrol adults. ParaNorman may be a little too scary for the toddler set (I heard one child fearfully ask Is this real, Mommy?) but older kids and grown-ups should enjoy this charmingly strange film. Produced by the animation company Laika, which is owned by Nike co-founder Phil Knight, this is the companys second stop-motion animated 3D film; the first was the critically acclaimed but under-appreciated Coraline. In ParaNorman, the action takes place in the small town of Blithe Hollow, a run-down village whose only claim to fame is that a witch was hanged and buried somewhere near the town 300 years ago. Unknown to the townsfolk, the witch cursed the town and every year on the anniversary of her death, someone must follow a prescribed ritual to appease her until the next anniversary. But this year, circumstances prevent that ritual from taking place and the town is besieged by ghosts and zombies released by the curse. All hell is breaking loose and little Norman is the only one who can save Blithe Hollow. Norman is the weird kid who gets picked on and bullied, both at school and at home because he claims to be able to see and talk to the dead, including people, animals and even road kill. At home, his dead grandmother is a nearconstant presence in the house that only he can see and hear. Of course no one, including his family, believes him, except maybe his peculiar and secretive uncle, voiced by John Goodman. The uncle reluctantly passes the secret ritual on to his nephew and its up to Norman and his band of followers to save the town from the centuries-old curse. Co-directed by Chris Butler and Sam Fell, the film also had Travis Knight (son of Phil Knight) as lead animator. Chris Butler previously worked under Tim Burton on Corpse Bride and its easy to see Burtons influence on Butlers style. Fell was the director of The Tale of Despereaux and Flushed Away, so he has a history of wellcrafted, stop-motion and animated features. ParaNorman took two years to make and the craftsmanship is evident in every scene.

Ticket sales are limited to 250 people for the fundraiser at the historic Key West hotel, and McClellan said she liked the idea of playing at the more intimate venue. She enjoys inviting the crowd to come sit up on stage with her during performances. The stage will be in a pool setting outside, so its going to be really coolquaint, she said. I like having people sit near me on the stage when I perform. It feels more personal. I think people like being right next to the artist, singing and playing right near their faces. I feed off the energy of the crowd. At the concert, shell be performing many of the songs from her debut international release and fifth album, Fear Nothing, which features Etta Jamesband. She wrote ten of the songs on the album, while the final track is a cover of Blind Willie Johnsons Nobodys Fault but Mine, inspired by Nina Simones version. Ill also play my favorite covers, she said. I love me some Etta James. It can go anywhere from Journey to Johnny Cash. For those who dont know, theyre definitely not going to walk out of there without singing the blues. Those who do know will be sitting up on the front row. After her brief respite in Key West, McClellan will be back on tour with Vai, and at the end of October they will head overseas to venues like Finland, Estonia and Lithuania. Its crazy, she said. I could only dream of going on tour like this before The Voice, and now Im still continuing to go full force. Ive never left the United States, so this will definitely be an experience. Steve Vai is an amazing guitarist. Theres no one else that can play like him. Proceeds from the event at Pearls will benefit Womankind, a local nonprofit that was formed in 2001 to provide accessible and affordable womens primary, gynecologic and mental health care regardless of ethnicity or socioeconomic level. I believe that the work that Womankind does is importantwomens health is important, Carruthers said. Women tend to worry more about taking care of their loved ones than themselves. Women still make less money than men, even for the same work.

The event is all-welcome, and guests will receive free beer, wine, Pearls punch and hearty hors doeuvres. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased in advance at pearlskeywest.com.

The faces and bodies of the characters are wonderfully warped and weird, which only adds to the delightfully bizarre animation. And, unlike most animated films, this one develops slowly, giving the viewer time to appreciate the many one-liners and sight gags throughout the film. The movie has a worthy message about bullying, intolerance and the dangers of fear. The one flaw in the film is that the directors tend to get a little heavyhanded delivering that message. But the art is wonderful, the numerous references to horror movies and their clichs are clever and the characters are strangely beautiful. The result is a poignant, funny and touching film about finding your own way, the value of friendship and, above all, learning to forgive.

McAloon, on staff at the Studios, has won awards from Sculpture Key West, the Bob Crane Esplanade Award, Duke Rood Memorial Award and the Jim Racchi Earth and Sea Award. Her entry, Whitecaps, garnered the most votes during the summer gallery show, staged at The Studios, which included works in watercolor, photography, oils, acrylic, fresco, stone carving, collage, sculpture, mixed media, clay printing, weaving, porcelain, jewelry, quilting and more. Whitecaps is made of porcelain and stainless steel. Another well-known Key West artist, Lois Songer, won second place in the Summer Salon. Shes studied glass and metal smith classes from the Toledo Museum of Art and at The John C Campbell Folk School in North Carolina, where she studied with California beadmaker Joyce Rooks. Songer follows an age old technique called lampworking, (originally oil lamps were used to heat the glass), to produce hand-crafted glass beads by winding hot molten glass around thin stainless steel rods. More recently, shes expanded into mixed media work, including Explorer, which took the second place award. Artist H.B. Clark took third place honors for Geisha 2008, executed in glass. More than 80 original works encompassing two dozen different mediums and disciplines were presented in the 4th Annual Summer Salon.
