Keys injunction finally liftedMonroe County has been "bombarded" with calls from property owners now that a seven-year stay on National Flood Insurance Policy protection for thousands of Keys parcels has been lifted, Monroe County Growth Management Director Christine Hurley says. On Sept. 13, U.S. District Court Judge K. Michael Moore removed the 2005 injunction that froze some 55,000 parcels in development limbo. The injunction was part of a much older lawsuit filed in 1990 by three environmental groups against the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The suit claimed that allowing flood insurance in endangered-species habitat violates the Endangered Species Act. The environmental groups won and FEMA, as part of a 2010 settlement, saddled the county with the burden of habitat inspection. "We would ask the customers to be patient. It's just as new to us as it is to everyone else," Hurley said. "For another month or two until we get this into the normal process it's really frustrating for people. Even though it's really good what happened, people in the process view it as another level of review they have to go through." What happened was that the county on June 2 approved a law creating a "permit referral process" that essentially means the county reviews proposed new development occurring in "species focus areas" or "species buffer areas." She said there are roughly 35,000 of those parcels in the Keys. Those "review" areas are habitat where one of nine federally-protected species could live: the eastern Indigo snake, Key deer, Key Largo cotton mouse, Key Largo woodrat, Key tree cactus, Lower Keys marsh rabbit, Schaus swallowtail butterfly, silver rice rat and Stock Island tree snail. Chief Assistant County Attorney Bob Shillinger told the Keynoter that Monroe's court action against FEMAand Fish and Wildlife was officially dropped on Thursday. He called the permit referral process a much more "palatable" one for the county.

Heavilin, 46, is currently finance director for the Monroe County Sheriff's Office. She's being challenged by Key West Democrat Joe Allen in her quest to replace outgoing County Clerk Danny Kolhage. Allen has done virtually no campaigning and did not respond to repeated phone calls or emails seeking comment on his candidacy. As Kolhage leaves office after nearly three decades, there are a number of statemandated deadlines looming for a switch to a largely paperless court filing system. This is being rolled out across Florida in 2013. Heavilin says her first priority will be to determine the current status of local adoption of the state Supreme Court-mandated switch to electronic filing and email service of court documents. "The Clerk has a great team of employees and together we will prioritize the remaining mandates and continuously work hard to ensure that the other portions of e-filing are met on time and in the most costeffective way," she said. In other counties that have made more progress toward a paperless system, the trend has been a decrease in number of county clerk employees in other counties.

"Think about how many restaurants down here serve conch fritters or conch chowder," said Rick Hill from Key Largo Fisheries. "Except for Burger King and McDonald's, just about every one of them." Through Oct. 26, the National Marine Fisheries Services is collecting comments on its August decision that queen conch merits a status review as an endangered or threatened species. WildEarth Guardians, an environmental group, petitioned the Fisheries Service in March to consider queen conch (strombus gigas) as a protected species. "Information in the petition was substantial enough, based on harvest rates and biological characteristics of queen conch, to move forward," said Calusa Horn, a biologist in NMFS'Office of Protected Resources. Any declaration of endangered-species status would be at least a year away, following a 12-month status review initiated by the August determination. "It could take a few years before a decision is made to move foward from there," Horn said. "And it could be that nothing happens." Harvest of queen conch has been banned in Florida state waters and adjacent federal waters for years.

On July 17, the couple was in an inflatable dinghy traversing Key West Harbor when they were thrown overboard. Wendy Everson was unconscious when a U.S. Coast Guard Sector Key West crew pulled her body from the water.

On Friday, Anthony Ostrander, 26, was charged with dealing in stolen property as detectives continue their investigation into the gun thefts, first reported Tuesday morning. And the Monroe County Sheriff's Office is conducting an internal investigation into how the break-in happened with Sgt. Ken Fricke's cruiser parked outside his Big Pine residence. On Wednesday, deputies arrested 17-year-old Big Pine Key teen, Kalvin Cowger, in connection with the theft. The M4 carbine assault rifle, tactical gear and ammunition for the rifle were recovered. Still missing, however, is Fricke's personal .45 caliber Glock hand gun. On Friday, detectives recovered the department-issued .40 caliber Glock from a Keys man who called police and identified Ostrander and Cowger as the pair who showed him two hand guns. The buyer told police he paid $300 for the gun. The weapons were stolen some time between last Sunday and Tuesday morning. Fricke told detectives he heard his dogs bark between 2 and 2:45 a.m. Tuesday morning, but he did not get out of bed to investigate. He said he last saw his handgun Sunday evening. Fricke is a member of the agency's Special Weapons and Tactics Team. The M4 rifle recovered Wednesday is a carbine version of the M16 assault rifle. The U.S. Army is switching to the shorter M4 as its standard issue combat rifle. Crime scene investigators said they can't determine how access was gained to the vehicle. Police canvassed the neighborhood to see if anyone saw or heard anything. When reached for comment on whether he left his patrol car unlocked, Fricke told The Reporter he cannot comment because the matter is still an active investigation. Deputy Becky Herrin, an agency spokeswoman, said she could not comment on what she called an "internal investigation." According to the Sheriffs Office's general orders, off-duty deputies cannot store firearms in their department-issued vehicles "unless the firearm is secured with a locking device/container mounted to the inside of the vehicle." Also, the general orders state off-duty deputies "shall not store issued laptop computers, ballistic vests and any clothing with police identifiers in their issued vehicles." Police arrest second suspect after theft CRIMEDAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.com Congressional race heating up in KeysDemocratic congressional candidate Joe Garcia launched his first television campaign commercial late last week, and it was aimed at Keys voters. The ad was followed by a visit to Monroe County on Tuesday to meet with Keys officials and business people. The trip concluded with a visit with the county's Democratic leadership in Key West. Garcia, 48, said he chose the Keys to kick off his television campaign ads because "this is an area that knows me a little less." The Keys will be included in the U.S. congressional District 26 after the November election as a result of a redistricting plan approved by the Legislature earlier this year. Monroe County is currently in District 18, represented by Republican Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. Under the redistricting plan, District 26 will run from Kendall to Key West. The television ad features Marathon Mayor Pete Worthington walking around a fishing marina talking about the need to protect the Keys'"way of life." "The Keys are unique, and we want to protect our way of life here," Worthington says in the ad. "But a lot of folks in Washington don't get that." Garcia said he plans to help Keys constituents by lowering Citizens Property Insurance Corp.'s windstorm insurance rates, pushing for the Keys to be included in a national catastrophic fund to pay for storm damage and opposing offshore oil drilling. One of his stops this week was a visit with County Commissioner Hea-ther Carruthers, a founding member of the influential grassroots group Fair Insurance Rates for Monroe, or FIRM. "The investment the Florida Keys made to its construction (standards) makes it less vulnerable to wind damage caused by a hurricane," Garcia said. He released a second ad this week showing him walking around Florida City and other parts of south Miami-Dade County. Most of that spot focused on his plans to grow jobs. Garcia is facing Republican challenger Rep. David Rivera. Rivera, 47, defeated Garcia in 2010 for the District 25 seat by almost 10 points. But Garcia's chances of beating Rivera in the November rematch have improved because District 26 is almost evenly split between Democrats and Repub-licans, and because of Rivera's mounting legal issues. Rivera's campaign has been plagued recently by accusations that he may have violated federal election laws by secretly funding the campaign of one of Garcia's primary opponents, Justin Lamar Sternad. Sternad, a hotel clerk, spent thousands of dollars on campaign mailers, including some sent to the Keys, blasting Garcia. The FBI is investigating whether Rivera and Republican political consultant Ana Sol Alliegro paid the tens of thousands of dollars to pay for the mailers. Alliegro has been missing for two weeks. Her family says she is in hiding. The Miami Herald reported earlier this week that Sternad's campaign did not initially report any of the work or money for the campaign literature. This is a violation of federal election law. Rivera's office did not respond to an e-mail asking about his campaign plans for the Keys. The e-mail also asked about his involvement with Sternad. Rivera's attorney told the Herald this week that he would not comment while the sources remained anonymous. "We will respond when these so-called sources'are willing to go on the record," said attorney Michael R. Band, who represents Rivera. "We are not going to respond to unfounded rumors and innuendo. My client is in the middle of an election and it's unfair for us to be shadow-boxing with unnamed sources." Garcia did not comment on the Sternad and Rivera connection. "Salaciousness sells, but it doesn't elect," the Miami Democrat said. Garcia airs TV spot with Marathon mayorELECTION 2012DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.com John F.

Key Largo Fisheries, which supplies many Keys and South Florida restaurants, imports from the Bahamas, Nicaragua and a conch farm in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The Bahamas alone shipped nearly 300 tons of conch meat, worth an estimated $3.3 million, to the United States last year, according to the Bahamas Tribune. "Conch is good for you," said Joe Deconda of The Cracked Conch Cafe in Marathon. "It's a pure white meat that's high in protein and low in fat." "About 75 percent" of menu items at The Cracked Conch contain the mollusk meat, Deconda said. "We've specialized in conch for 32 years." "The tourists like it and conch has developed quite a following among our local customers," he said. But Deconda remembers when sea-turtle meat was a mainstay of Middle Keys restaurants like Handley's and The Bird Cage. "If they eventually tell me I can't serve conch, there's really no choice," he said. Laura Dreaver of The Key Largo Conch House said environmental concerns are a priority for her family-owned restaurant. "We would never serve a protected species," she said. "If it came down to it, we'd change our name first." Bob Jones, executive director of the commercial Southeastern Fisheries Association, said a ban on importing conch "would have a big impact on our member dealers who serve the local restaurants." An endangered-species declaration could lead to new rules to protect the conchs'habitat on the ocean floor, Jones said. "They always go to extremes," Jones said. "Are they going to ban anchoring and putting traps on the bottom?" Anumber of conch studies cited by the WildEarth Guardians petitions took place in Florida Keys waters. "Queen conch have already been so heavily exploited in many areas that a viable fishery no longer exists, yet the population continues to be steadily depleted," the group said in a statement. The Florida Fish and Wildife Research Institute will submit comments on the federal review but will not release a draft version. Growing conchs through aquaculture can be succesful in a limited program, but probably not at a commercial-food level, said Bob Glazer, a noted FWRI conch researcher. It takes about 10 adult conchs to produce a pound of meat, he said. "In the wild, one conch occupies about 10 square meters," Glazer said. "It's a huge, huge area."Tourists like tasty molluskFrom Conchs,1A OCTOBER Tax TalkFact sTag TalkFROMTHE TAX COLLECTOR We are preparin g the 2012 Tax Roll.

Proponents argued Tuesday that the estimated $1.1 million course would revitalize the financially crippled nonprofit, while opponents said it's not an appropriate use for a rare hardwood hammock and interferes with migratory habits of the White-crowned pigeon. The City Council weighed the pros and cons and approved by a 3-2 vote a "sub-grant agreement" with the state Department of Economic Opportunity to secure a Community Development Block Grant in the amount of $735,000. Mayor Pete Worthington and Councilman Richard Keating dissented. A"participating party agreement" with the Florida Keys Land and Sea Trust, which owns Crane Point, makes the nonprofit the recipient of that money. It'll be used toward the construction of the course. The Crane Point item drew 14 speakers Tuesday, evenly distributed among supporters and detractors. None was more critical of the project than Crane Hammock subdivision resident Michael Welber. Welber, who has been openly critical of the project in past appearances, on Tuesday escalated that, accusing the Council of a "fixed vote" and also threatened a lawsuit. "I'm not naive, it's a foregone conclusion you're going to pass it. The Realtors want it and the [Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce] wants it and what they want they get," Welber said. He went on to state that the city's Citizen Advisory Task Force, a layperson board that advises the council on the state CDBG, was illegally constituted when it gave approval to the Crane Point project. "The original task force you convened was not legally convened. The members were not very low or lowincome," Welber said. "You have to go back and form a new committee; table the approval and hold new, legal hearings; otherwise, you're going to find yourselves and the city in court." Welber argued that at least three of the five members did not meet income standards to be on the board. But the 2008 resolution establishing membership criteria reads that three of the five must be "very low or low-income and/or minorities." City Attorney John Herin, citing state law, said a woman is considered a minority. Four of the five committee members were women. However, on Tuesday, the city did update the 2008 resolution to remove reference to income and minority restrictions. City Manager Roger Hernstadt told the Keynoter that was to clean up "out-of-date language." Deb Curlee, another staunch opponent to the zip line, also threatened a lawsuit. She said she's been denied multiple requests to view a copy of the nonprofit's bylaws. "I will file a petition in the circuit court in Key West. You have to wonder why this request (to see bylaws) is being denied," she said. Crane Point board Chairman Lynn Mapes, who also spoke Tuesday, told the Keynoter Curlee is welcome to view the bylaws. "She can look at the bylaws any time she wants to," he said. Mapes mentioned during his comments that Executive Director Audrey Moir was no longer with Crane Point. He told the Keynoter she recently resigned. "Jeff Smith is the treasurer and he's really running an awful lot of it. Loretta Geotis is running the day-by-day, as director of operations," he said. Among zip line advocates, Chamber Chief Executive Officer Daniel Samess said the zip-line would bring jobs and sales tax revenue. It's "an attraction that the [county Tourist Development Council and its Middle Keys district advisory committee] are ready to market," he said. During council discussion, Keating and Worthington said they were "keeping the door open" for the grant, but don't feel it's the best project for Crane Point. Keating said he agreed with opponents of the zipline that argued it doesn't comply with city code suggesting that recreational use in conservation zoned areas should be "passive." "The zip-line goes against the basic tenets to preserve the natural hammock and the natural area. Any way you look at it, a zip-line is not a passive use," he said. Keating also said he was concerned with "using taxpayer dollars to underwrite this private business." Crane Point says a zipline would create 21 full-time jobs. The city would have to pay back the DEO $35,000 for each one not created, though the nonprofit has pledged to cover the first four with a line of credit if needed. "I don't see exposing the taxpayers to the tune of $595,000," Worthington said, referring to the difference between $735,000 and $140,000 for four jobs. "I know there's other opportunities to keep that land in conservation; 21 jobs is a lot of jobs." Councilman Mike Cinque called the grant "a sideshow" and said it's not the real issue at hand. "If they had the $750,000 in the bank, you'd still be against it," he said to opponents Tuesday. "I am going to support this because I think it's a way to preserve it with not so much harm done."Opponents threaten lawsuitsMARATHON Apply Today:Call 305-293-6000 Go to KeysFCU.org Visit one of our convenient branchesin Key West at Key Plaza or Southard St. and in Marathon Shores.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4A Saturday,September 29,2012 www.keysnet.com Some relief promised with repaved detourCity of Key West construction crews around noon on Thursday finished a repaving project off Northside Drive they hope will relieve bypass congestion on North Roosevelt Boulevard. The repaving was expected to be finished over the weekend, but heavy rains delayed the work until Thursday. At 8 a.m. on Monday, North Roosevelt switched to just two lanes inbound between the Triangle and Eisenhower Drive. The $41.5 million North Roosevelt project, which started in April, is slated for completion by June 2014. The primary contractor for the Florida Department of Transportation is the Miamibased De Moya Group Inc. The state is paying $31.8 million of the $41.5 million project's cost. The city of Key West is putting in $4.3 million for a new sewer main and the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority is adding $5.4 million for a new water line. The work includes the entire stretch of the North Roosevelt seawall, slated to be bordered by a 20-footwide landscaped promenade; four lanes of traffic each 11 feet wide; a 10-foot center turn lane; and a six-foot sidewalk on the business side of the road running from North Roosevelt and U.S. 1 to the intersection of North Roosevelt and Eisenhower. For the duration of the construction, DOTis maintaining a website, www.fdot monroe.com/keywest that allows motorists to register for e-mail updates about changes in work hours, traffic patterns and other alerts.City crews done on delayed Northside workKEY WESTBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com$23,213 settlement OK'dThe Monroe County School Board on Tuesday approved a settlement agreement worth $23,213 with a teacher accused and later cleared of hitting a fiveyear-old autistic student. Janet Faber agreed to the settlement and the School board approved the measure this week 4-0 with board member Duncan Mathewson absent. Faber, a five-year teacher working with special-needs students at Glynn Archer Elementary School in Key West, was suspended without pay on Feb. 28 following allegations brought by coworker Charity King, a Glynn Archer kindergarten teacher, on Dec. 16. Board member John Dick was the only one who spoke up about the item during the Key West meeting, calling the situation "troubling." "We basically had one person saying they saw something and another person saying they didn't do it and no corroboration. I don't understand how we went forward with this?" King alleges she saw Faber spank and "handle the student roughly." However, in her testimony, King could not recall specifics about the incident like the approximate time, the student's reaction or her position relative to Faber. When Principal Harry Russell interviewed the other students in the class, "none of these students reported witnessing anything inappropriate," according to Florida Department of Administrative Hearings Judge Claude Arrington's final order, dated July 25. He concluded: King's "vague, uncorroborated testimony is insufficient to support a finding of guilt." Faber most recently earned $49,791 per year, according to the district's Human Resources Department. That means the back pay, based on equal payments made over 52 weeks, would come out to around $26,800. Also on Tuesday, Stuart Kessler, chairman of the district's Audit and Finance Committee, commented on the work being done by the committee's newest member Dan Dombrowski, appointed over the summer by Mathewson to replace Larry Murray. Dombrowski, who lives on Big Pine Key, said he's waiting for new Superintendent Mark Porter to give the committee a definitive charge. "I think it's still kind of looking, especially with the new superintendent, for a focus and direction," Dombrowski said of the committee. "Does he want to use it as a tool to assist the district or is it another committee that's going to languish out there?" Kessler said of Dombrowski: "He's getting his feet wet. This is very complex stuff and he is working very hard."OUR SCHOOLS VOTE VOGELFOR STATE ATTORNEYPROFESSIONAL...NOT POLITICALPolitical advertisement paid for and approved by Catherine Vogel, Democrat for State Attorney, Monroe County Member American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry,Florida Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry American Dental AssociationBig Pine Key € 305-872-4272 € keysdentist.comGeneral Dentistry done comfortably!

MM 50.5 (next to Herbies)743-2020 School boa r d ca n didate s debate futu r eThe District 2 race for Monroe County School Board pits incumbent Andy Griffith's two decades of experience a g ainst political newcomer Yvette MiraTalbott, who has criticized her opponent as overstayin g his usefulness. That point came into sharp focus durin g a Monday ni g ht political forum hosted at Key West International Airport by the Hometown Political Action Committee. Moderator Ed Scales, a local attorney and Florida Keys Community Colle g e trustee, asked the two candidates to pose questions to one another. Up first, Mira-Talbott bluntly asked Griffiths: "What's g oin g to be different over the next four years? I'm not exactly sure what you're g oin g to offer." Griffiths responded not with a specific list of actionable plans, but rather said Superintendent Mark Porter the first appointed, not elected schools chief would usher in a new era of accountability. We're g oin g from crisis mana g ement to plannin g ," Griffiths said. "I think we need stability for a chan g e." Griffiths, durin g his opportunity to question Mira-Talbott, lobbed a softball askin g what she intended to do durin g the first month on the job. Mira-Talbott, who owns a property appraisal business with her husband, said she'd g et brou g ht up to speed with Porter then focus in on the School District's financial affairs, particularly g ettin g rid of si g nificant audit findin g s from the state's annual audit review. Another question from Scales challen g ed the candidates to g ive a g rade, on a scale of one to 100, evaluatin g the recent superintendent search process that resulted in Porter bein g hired Au g 1; the performance of district principals; and the performance of the board in the postRandy Acevedo era. Acevedo, the last elected superintendent, was convicted in 2008 of felony official misconduct for coverin g up more than $400,000 in theft from the district by his wife Monique, a former administrator; she's servin g an ei g ht-year sentence in state prison.Griffiths pointed out that he spearheaded the otherwise sta g nant search process by pushin g for establishment of a 22-person search committee and by brin g in g in a consultant who was later fired from the job. Griffiths, the retired owner of a charter fishin g business, g ave the search a score of 98; the principals "doin g a g reat job under very, very difficult circumstances" earned a 90. On Acevedo: "Oh my g osh, are you still talkin g about that? That's g oin g on four years now." He g ave the board overall a score of 80 and said he scored himself individually hi g her. Mira-Tallbot said there were too many people on the search committee and not enou g h board presence, earnin g a B. She said she is "continually impressed" by principals, g ivin g them an A. Of the board: "I'm g oin g to have to say a failin g g rade. Since [Acevedo's] departure, we have still seen ourselves on the front pa g e of the newspaper." Mira-Talbott durin g her campai g n has stressed that the board needs a female perspective and she expounded on that under questionin g "Men tend to think very black and white. We (women) tend to think with compassion. I'll always put children in the front of my mind." Panelist Naja Girard asked the two, "Is it all about money?" "It's about priorities," Griffiths said. "There will never be enou g h money." Mira-Talbott called parents "the only resource that's left untapped," and pointed to her small business experience. "I have to work effectively and efficiently. We have to be ale to service our schools and our children." The nonpartisan School Board race is on Nov. 6; the four-year job pays around $29,000 per year plus benefits.Hometown PAC forum airs differencesELECTION 2012School-based mana g ement philosophy divides candidates for District 3 seatTwo political newcomers, both with deep roots in the Monroe County School District, are vyin g to replace the increasin g ly absentee District 3 School Board representative Duncan Ma-thewson. With a primary field five stron g lon g time schools watchdo g Ed Davidson and former Key West Hi g h School principal John Welsh made it throu g h the Au g ust election. Davidson, an unwaverin g presence at board meetin g s and other school functions, has tied all aspects of his campai g n on a return to schools-based mana g ement, the prevalent philosophy under lon g time Florida Keys Superintendent Boo-kie Henriquez. But Davidson acknowled g ed that empowerin g individual schools to mana g e business now handled by the district's central office wouldn't happen overni g ht. "It has to be a carefully sequenced process," he said. "It's g oin g to require some retrainin g for the present administrators. Some are more capable than others. "The point of real community-anchored schools-based mana g ement is not to just break the system into 13 banana republics; it's to ensure that the decentralized system will be run by a representative cross section of the community character." Welsh, with more than three decades workin g in the district, said it's not that simple as g ivin g more people access to money creates or g anizational risk. "It's a g ood philosophy on paper. I worked under schoolbased mana g ement under three superintendents. Each one had a different concept in their minds. "I think the basic philosophy of school-based mana g ement is g ood," Welsh said, "but it takes someone who is not afraid to relinquish some of their power. The basic tenet is those most affected by the decision have major input. I'd like to say it always worked that way, but that would not be true." Davidson described the idea of schools-based mana g ement as simply eachschool payin g their own utility bills, for instance, as "a very shallow concept of what we're talkin g about. "It doesn't matter so much who pays the electric bill. t matters who decides the policies that are g oin g to g overn the school. It's appropriate for the Florida Keys because of our g eo g raphy. The system is now run for adults and it needs to be run for children." Welsh has hit hard on the need to re g ain public trust as step one in stabilizin g the district, which in the past four years has seen a public scandal that brou g ht low a previous superintendent and his wife, also a former administrator who was convicted of felonies for stealin g more than $400,000 in public money. Shrinkin g property taxes and cuts in state fundin g also tri gg ered precipitous bud g et cuts toppin g $13 million in just the past two years. One step the former principal offered would be for the board and administration to rethink their relationship with the various district advisory boards."Historically, a lot of what I'd call advisory boards, in my opinion, they were token. The relationship was adversarial. I'd like to chan g e that." Welsh also su gg ested a robust pro g ram for academic reco g nition and a re g ular schedule of town hall meetin g s for the various school communities. Welsh has a bachelor's de g ree in education from the Colle g e of New Jersey and a master's in school administration and supervision from Nova Southeastern University. Davidson, owner of a Marathon dive shop, holds a bachelor's de g ree in science and completed g rad work at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y.

She will shortly be heading to Germany and a two-year term as the new director of the International Tracing Service, whose mission was to help survivors of the holocaust and their relatives trace the fate of family members. Administered by the International Red Cross since 1955, ITS is now run by an international commission comprised of the United States, Israel and nine European countries. Starting in 2013, Dr. Boehling will replace the Red Cross as ITS administrator. In 2006, when it opened its archives to the public, ITS offered researchers a new trove of over 50 million documents. The next year, its board decided to expand its mission, adding historical research and education to its tracing services, which nearly 70 years after World War II still number over 1,000 per month. She will address her appointment, ITS's work and her future plans for the ITS, which include expansion and integration of ITS's work into the worldwide network of Holocaust information, a network that includes the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. and Yad Vashem, the Israeli Holocaust memorial and research center in Jerusalem. Dr. Boehling is currently full professor of history and director of Dresher Center for Humanities at the University of Maryland. She will be on sabbatical during her tenure at ITS, a position she was offered unanimously by ITS's international commission over dozens of other scholars from around the world. She will be the first American to head ITS, and the first woman. The Keys Jewish Community Center is located at mile marker 102 in Key Largo. To attend, please call 852-5235 or e-mail: president@keysjewishcenter.com.

The award was received on Tuesday night, Sept. 25. Ali Adams, Recreation Specialist MarathonAmendment 4 aims at expandingexemptions and curbing assessmentsThe siren song of tax relief is playing out on the November ballot in Florida, where lawmakers and interested parties have no less than three Constitutional amendments tied to tax exemptions facing voters. The centerpiece, known as Amendment 4, is getting lots of cash and political lobbying from the real estate and development industries in the Sunshine State. It's labeled with a catchall, sounds good, motherhood and apple pie title: Property tax limitation; property value decline, reduction for non-homestead assessment increases, delay of scheduled repeal.Whew. That's a whole lot to chew on. Chew on this: If this Amendment 4 passes with a 60 percent "yes" vote, local governments throughout the state stand to lose up to $1 billion in property tax revenues. Florida TaxWatch loves the idea. "Reducing the uncertainly of potentially large property tax increases will increase investment in both nonhomesteaded residential and commercial property in Florida," said Jerry Parrish, chief economist for the TaxWatch lobby group. Florida Realtors have raised more than $2 million for their political action committee, dubbed "Taxpayers First," and has spent buckets of money on mailers and other advertising to support Amendment 4. On the other side, opponents lined up against this property tax amendment include the Florida League of Cities, Florida Association of Counties, Florida Sheriff's Association, the League of Women Voters and others who question the timing of this push. Ironically, with Florida property values having declined since 2005, giving away bigger exemptions for homesteaded properties and cutting in half the assessment caps on investor-owned properties strikes many as the wrong time and wrong-headed. The Legislature's own Office of Economic and Demographic Research estimates the hit to city, county and special taxing districts at $1.7 billion over the next four years. This comes on top of belt-tightening already imposed by state actions that shift the burden of paying for government services from the state's sales tax revenue stream to local governments, which rely heavily on property taxes to pay for things like schools, law enforcement, fire services, jails, even water and sewers. The League of Women Voters of Florida, in opposing Amendment 4, adds that it would "give out-of-state residents the benefit of (Florida's) homestead tax exemption." Now, that's good for the real estate industry, which likes to promote investor purchases of Florida residential and commercial property. But, ask your local city councilman, or school board member, or fire district commissioner what they think about this. The Florida Association of Counties is more blunt: Amendment 4 "offers little relief for Florida's full-time homeowners, but promises special tax breaks for out-ofstate investors, real estate flippers and second homeowners."

Billboard is offensiveRegarding the billboard advertisement on Adams Cut, mile marker 103, basically it's a almost naked pictorial of a person who's store's name is Don Bailey Flooring, which has locations in Dade and Broward counties, not Monroe. I've had to look at a caped phantom for the last several years, for Phantom Fireworks, which is right up the road on the bay side of U.S. 1. Now this sign depicting an almost naked elderly man staring down on my home and grandchildren is a little beyond the common sense of Monroe County zoning department. Letting this type of advertising be the last thing folks have an image of the Florida Keys as they leave northbound for the stretch is probably not in the good taste the Tourist Development Council is spending all that money for television spots up north. Lastly, this billboard is right in the middle of a residential neighborhood. And, I for one as a member of the Anglers Park Home Owners Association, think maybe it should go not be reinforced, as it has been recently with new poles. Tom Mesler Key Largo Photo by Mike MakowskiContest pits incumbent vs. political newcomerTravis Yednak, candidate for District 2 on the Islamorada Village Council, says one of his strongest qualifications is the fact that he is new to local politics. "Running for office from a position of civic duty allows me to arrive at the job with no insurmountable prejudices regarding current issues," Yednak said. But his opponent, Councilman David Purdo, says the village is in a critical state of transition and needs experienced leaders who "understand why and how we got to where we are and also understand what we're doing on these issues." Purdo, 71, a retired Detroit, Mich. police officer and boat captain who moved to the Keys in 1977, is competing for a second two-year term on the Village Council. His challenger, 31-year-old Yednak, is managing editor of The Real Estate Book, as well as partial owner of the home listing publication. Yednak moved to the Keys in 2004 after graduating from Marshall University in West Virginia. Purdo says his proudest achievements during his first term are completing a deal with Indiana-based Reynolds Inc. to build Islamorada's centralized wastewater system, sponsoring an ordinance mandating the hiring of local contractors on government projects, not raising property taxes in two years and "placing Islamorada in the best financial position it has ever been in with a fund balance of over $3 million." The $91-million contract with Reynolds, approved in August, is almost $4 million less than the contract approved and then broken earlier this summer with international firms AECOM and Veolia Water North America. Village officials called off the deal after discovering that AECOM/Veolia changed significant language in the document after it was signed by then-Mayor Michael Reck-werdt. Purdo was the only one on the five-member council to vote against the AECOM /Veolia contract in early July. Saying he never fully trusted the companies, Purdo now says fellow board members and village staff should have heeded his warnings. "If perhaps both staff and council had listened a little more closely to my arguments from the beginning, things just might have turned out differently," he said. "Remember, I was against Veolia/AECOM from the beginning, and I provided hours and hours of research to the committee, staff, and members of council, which in some cases was all but ignored." Yednak said it is too late to assign blame for the situation with AECOM and Veolia. "Obviously, there were misunderstandings and confused communications between client and vendor," Yednak said. "At this point, it's a matter of informed hindsight, and we should retain the lessons learned to move forward." Yednak added that he is satisfied with the way things worked out with Reynolds, but the village needs to stay vigilant. "A$90-plus million dollar public project in our village is a big deal," he said. "There must be constant oversight. Will change orders crop up? How can the inconvenience of this project for our citizens and businesses be addressed? How will our streets, driveways and landscaping be repaired after trenching. This is just the beginning and there is much important work and oversight to be done." Purdo is more optimistic, calling the Reynolds contract a "win/win situation for the village and all the businesses and residents." "We save the village a lot of money, we have a closed contract and we will be using local contractors for this sewer project," he said. When asked about where Purdo could have done a better job as a council member, Yednak had nothing negative to say about his opponent. "While it is easy for anyone to second-guess a councilman's job performance from the sidelines, I've quickly learned that it is nearly impossible to judge their decisions without all the facts," he said. Critiquing his own performance, Purdo said he should have pushed for more competitive bidding for major village projects. "I think I could have done a better job handling this issue," he said.

Saturday,September 29,2012 7A Keynoter KeysNet.com BusinessThe numbers behind jobs pictureGov. Rick Scott got in a spat with a reporter this week over some employment statistics. With Scott touting job growth, a Bloomberg reporter noted how state economists have calculated Florida's 8.8 unemployment rate would be 9.8 percent if not for the shrinking size of the state's population that actually participates in the labor force. Known as the "participation rate," the statistic measures the portion of the population that's in the labor force that is, either working or looking for work. In July the participation rate stood at 60 percent in Florida, a 26-year-low and down from a recent high of 64.3 percent in 2007. The 40 percent not "participating" in the workforce or roughly six million of the state's 15.4 million residents include retirees, students, and those who don't hold a job and have stopped looking. That third category gets the most attention, since a rise in so-called "discouraged workers" can artificially lower the unemployment rate even if hiring is shrinking. That's because the unemployment rate is calculated by dividing the number of people without jobs by the number of people in the labor force. If people leave the labor force faster than the unemployed get hired, the unemployment rate will go down. What's easy to overlook in the Scott flap is the fact that Florida's labor force has actually been growing almost non-stop for the last three years before going up and down in 2012. It's been back on the rise for most of this summer. Employment, as measured by federal surveys, also has been on the rise for the same stretch except for a drop in July. That helped push Florida's unemployment rate from 8.6 percent in June to 8.8 percent in July. In July, Florida's labor force shrunk by about 29,000 people after growing in May and June. The number driving down the participation rate is the fact that Florida's population growth has been outpacing the growth of its labor force. So the state isn't creating enough jobs to keep up with new residents and, presumably, new workers. It can be hard to keep all of these numbers straight, and the participation rate rarely gets reported when the media dissects monthly hiring data. The chart graphs unemployment, which is calculated by subtracting employment from labor force. This will get extra attention when Florida releases its August employment report. Even if the unemployment rate declines, expect extra scrutiny on the movement of the labor force.Job gains not keeping pace with populationBy DOUGLAS HANKSdhanks@MiamiHerald.comFLORIDA ECONOMY 5101 Overseas Hwy.

Federal regulators said Monday that Discover callcenter workers enrolled customers in the programs without their consent, misled them about the benefits and left customers thinking the products were free. Discover will pay a $14 million fine and refund $200 million directly to more than 3.5 million customers. The action was taken by the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Discover said this summer that it expected an enforcement action about add-on products. The consumer agency was created under the 2010 financial overhaul law to protect consumers from excessive or hidden fees and other financial threats.Oyster fishery nears collapseOfficials say an oyster collapse in the Gulf of Mexico along Florida's Big Bend and Panhandle will just have to run its course. Shellfish aquaculture expert Leslie Sturmer says too much salt in the water and high temperatures have stressed the oysters. They've also been fighting a parasite. The oysters have been dying from Cedar Key west to Apalachicola. Sturmer says clams farmed in the same areas are not affected. Restaurants in north Florida tell The Gainesville Sun (http://bit.ly/RHE1GO ) that the shortage is forcing them to sell smaller oysters at higher prices. Mark Berrigan of Florida's Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services says the die-off might be worst in Cedar Key. State data shows that the Levy County island community produced 131,821 pounds of oysters last year. Contrast that with the stone crab harvest in the Florida Keys, where about 900 fishermen account for nearly 65 percent of Florida's annual average of 3.2 million pounds. Just one claw is harvested f rom each crab, then the crab is thrown back so it can regenerate the claw, which takes about a year, making stone crab a sustainable fishery.

Church volunteers, supplemented by community volunteers, also staff an evening dinner on Thursdays from 5-7 p.m. The number of families and the number of children who are helped by this and other food pantries in the Keys continues to grow, said the Rev. Kerry Foote, pastor of Burton Memorial. "We're seeing 50 to 60 families a week. The vast majority are people who have jobs, they pay rent or have a house, but these are the working poor. They make too much money to get on substantial government assistance, but not enough money to make ends meet. And after paying the bills, what suffers is food to feed their family," Foote said. There are more smiles these days when folks see a bright green truck arrive at the church food bank, bearing fresh produce and meat donated by Publix and WinnDixie supermarket managers, who participate in the South Florida Food Consortium. Until recently, there were no fresh food deliveries to Burton Memorial or other food pantries operating in the Upper Keys. That is until the United Way of the Florida Keys convened a meeting of Keys food pantries and Paco Valez, who heads Feeding South Florida. "This past year, we focused on bringing stakeholders together to tackle basic needs for food in our community," said Candy Fincke, newly-elected chair of the United Way's Keys governing board. "Our President, Margie Smith, worked with Feeding South Florida to convene a Keys summit (held in April). As an outgrowth of that work, food pantries in the Upper Keys now are getting access to fresh produce and even meat donated by WinnDixie and Publix, and the Middle Keys will have access to these at Publix starting in October." The bright green truck handling deliveries in the Upper Keys is funded by a grant from the Ocean Reef Community Foundation, Smith said, "which is helping with food recovery efforts in the Upper Keys." Bob Thomas, co-owner of Key Largo Chocolates, is providing the refrigerated truck and a driver to assist in the program. Restaurants can participate in food recovery efforts thanks to a change in state law that took effect last year. Rather than throw away good food, restaurant managers and grocery stores can now donate surplus to food pantries for distribution. "United Way and Margie Smith were the catalyst to get this going," the Rev. Foote said. Publix, W/D now sharing fresh foods as a resultSOCIAL SERVICESEducation advocates are watchful, waryIt will take more than a listening tour to convince education advocates across Florida that Gov. Rick Scott is on their side. They are wary and skeptical of the man they have seen mostly as an adversary for the past two years. Now, they wait to see what kind of policies Scott will propose for the 2013 legislative session and budget and whether his decisions will reflect their advice. "We were actually thrilled when finally he realized that we are the right persons to go to when you're asking about parents," said Eileen Segal, president of the Florida PTA, who met with the governor a couple of weeks ago. "We're hoping that this is only the first of many conversations." Segal said she is willing to trust Scott, but is waiting to see what he does. "We're watching," she said. "That's all I can say we're watching." Scott's first-year budget cut education funding by $1.1 billion. He waited eight months to visit a traditional public school while class was in session. He traveled to a Jacksonvillearea charter school to sign his first bill into law eliminating tenure for new K-12 teachers and tying their pay increases to students'performance. And this is a governor who has said he hopes to increase the number of charter schools and has advocated for more vouchers to allow students to use public funds to attend private schools all while funding for traditional public schools has declined. "I'm an elementary teacher, so I try never to close the door on anybody," said Florida Education Association President Andy Ford. "Some day you're going to see the light, and it's going to click, and I think that may have happened for the governor." Scott's office did not respond to repeated requests to discuss his education policies past, present or future. The governor already has made some decisions, such as announcing that he will not support reductions in education spending in 2013. He also created a committee of seven county schools superintendents that will come up with recommendations to reduce regu-Gov.Scott held listening tours across FloridaBy TIA MITCHELLHerald/Times Tallahassee BureauOUR SCHOOLS See Food,3BSee Teachers,3B SCOTT Bob Thomas of Key Largo Chocolates and Erin O'Hara of Publix work on food recovery program for Upper Keys food pantries. Lady Canes sweep Key West in 3-gamesAfter a long dry spell, Coral Shores'volleyball Lady Hurricanes had reason to smile Wednesday. The Lady Canes (5-6) assembled one of their best performances of the season to defeat local and District 16-4Arival Key West in a straight-game match, 25-17, 25-18, 25-17. "This is one we had to have to get us going," said Cane head coach Andy Thiery after his squad ended a five-match losing skid. "They just put it all together, from back-row passing to defensive shifts," Thiery said. "They battled through, played consistent and finished off games."Key West (3-4) recently scored big upsets for district leader Gulliver Prep and longtime nemesis Monsignor Pace, but came out "flat" against Coral Shores, said Conch head coach Jessy Archer."They're still not used to winning yet," Archer said. "It's a phase, and they're coming around. It's midseason and we have time left to get it right." Hurricane middle hitter Mallory Wiecjorek had a "career game" with seven kill shots, said her coach.

Rainy weather of late has kept the team off the practice range at Sombrero Country Club since then. "Friday and Tuesday it rained so we couldn't get out there. We just didn't play that well," he said. Kyle Pierce led the Dolphins with a nine-hole score of 45. Kevin McKeon shot a 45, Jake Logan shot 49 and Ariel Rodriguez 54.

Minus top players, Conchs lose bigHole after hole, the season plods on for the Key West High golf team. Sometime it has its top players, sometimes it doesnt. On Thursday afternoon, against Gulliver Prep at the Biltmore Hotel course in Miami, the Conchs were decidedly shorthanded. We were missing Nos. 1,2,3 and 4 for different reasons, said coach John Moeller, referring to Evan DeRoche, Elliot Arazi, Scott Brown and Trevor Pike Gulliver won the ninehole match, 148-208. They are looking tough, Moeller said of the Raiders, who defeated Key West for the fourth time this season. Four Raiders broke 40, led by Ray Boone, who led with a one-over 36.The Conchs were led by Manuel Castillo (Hes just taking up the sport, Moeller said) and Chase Renner, both of whom shot 47. They are competing for the No. 5 spot in the district meet in October.Thomas Frickie came in at 52 and Danny Morin shot a 65. Frickies brother, Timmy, also played. This is all just practice till the districts, Moeller said.By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST GOLF KeysNet.com Keynoter 2B Saturday,September 29,2012 kills from outside, while Amando Ruano made three blocks with three scoring shots for the Hurricanes. Senior Iris Dunn has been carrying us at the net with double-figure kills in the last few matches, Thiery said. It was nice to see production from other places. Setter Ellie Leopold turned in another sterling effort, Thiery said. Jessica Wright handled the passing for the Conchs, setting up tall hitters Ryann Appleby and Shelbi Swanson at the net. This is good competition that will help get us ready for the District Tournament on Oct. 23, Archer said. I think its going to be anybodys game this year.

I thought, Oh, my gosh, how is it that big of a difference?In the end, Gulliver won, 25-14, 25-10, 25-18, to avenge a loss to the Conchs two weeks earlier in Key West. They came out on a mission, Archer said of the Raiders. They pushed and didnt let up. They really wanted it.It was the fourth consecutive loss for the Conchs, who dropped to 3-6 overall and 1-3 in District 16-4A, which is led by Gulliver with a 4-1 record.Offensively, we did not have as many attacks as usual, Archer said. Most of our points were placement points that found holes in the court. Junior Ryann Appleby led Key West with six kills and 15-of-16 hitting. Her kills werent as strong as were used to seeing, Archer said.

The Dolphins lost in straight sets to the Falcons in Miami Wednesday before winning a straight-set home match over Keys Gate on Thursday. Freshman Jordan Roney set the tone Thursday with a run of nine straight service points, at least five of them aces or not returned. That put the Dolphins up 10-0, they never looked back en route to a 25-11, 25-20 and 25-14 victory. Wednesdays match against the high-powered District 16-2Arival Falcons was a different story. Marathon hung in during the first set, but lost the match 16-25, 11-25 and 12-25. On Thursday, the Dolphinsstarters played only the first set and coach Teresa Konrath was able to get younger varsity and junior varsity players time on the court. Konrath singled out Regan Durkin and Amanda Bruland as playing well. Ive seen [Durkin] come up with some good hits, she said. Bruland has leadership skills that help a lot. With the junior varsity kids, she leads them through. Gardine Raymond also played well for the Dolphins, winning 13 service points and notching four kills. On Wednesday, Konrath said the team played well defensively but couldnt match the Falconsheight and power at the net. We played the first game with a lot of intensity. Everyone on the floor was moving toward the ball recovering little dinks in the middle of the court and in the corners, Konrath said. Durkin, Taylor Konrath and Amanda Davis played solid back row defense, along with Sydney Konrath and Savannah Rodamer picking up hard hit ball as well. I am very proud of the fact that I see the kids making gains in both offense and defense. As a team they are playing better every game, coach Konrath said. Roney led the team with 24 assists, while Taylor Konrath had nine hits and five kills. JohnNisha Qualls had f hits and three kills, and Savannah Rodamer had six hits and three kills.

We got 750 pounds of fresh food over the first two weeks the program was up and running.In addition to helping Keys food banks, the United Way of the Florida Keys has increased funding for a backpack food program initiated by Grace Jones Daycare Center in Marathon.Were now providing breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack for about 150 preschool-age children to have over the weekend, said Iris Coe, executive director at Grace Jones. The nutritious food, packed for the kids to carry home, helps meet the nutrition needs of youngsters whose parents often work multiple jobs, frequently on weekends, and may not be able to supervise their kids dietary choices. Healthy foods selected are ones the children can open and serve on their own, Coe said, adding that teachers have seen a marked improvement in student behavior and performance when they return to class on Mondays, because they-re not hungry from having little enough to eat when not in school. Fincke, vice president of professional services at Mariners Hospital, said the Grace Jones backpack nutrition model has now expanded to three other daycare centers. And Coe said the Grace Jones board has been asked to help jump-start a similar program in the Upper Keys. United Way donors contribute largely through payroll deductions and volunteer through campaigns held where they work. Last year, Publix and its employees in the Keys raised nearly $73,000 for United Way of the Florida Keys, through payroll deductions and corporate match, and they are on track to exceed that this year. They are the largest United Way donors in the Keys.Other large employee campaigns donate significantly to United Way, including Mariners Hospital, Monroe County Schools, Hawks Cay Resort, AT&T, Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority, Florida Keys Electric Cooperative, Iberia Bank, Bank of America and others.Starting now, volunteers from United Way of the Florida Keys and from the 18 agencies we help fund, are calling on Keys residents through an expanded workplace campaign, Fincke said. And, remember, donor dollars raised here in the Keys stay in the Keys. United Way will be presenting at the Islamorada Chamber of Commerce luncheon, Oct. 24, at the Islamorada Fishing Club, and at the Marathon Rotary luncheon, Oct. 31. Anyone who would like to arrange for a United Way presentation where they work, Fincke said, or to donate directly, can contact United Way President Margie Smith at 735-1929. The United Way of the Florida Keys is an independent, local 501(c)(3) organization that has been supporting the Keys community for more than 30 years.

He is listening, he has said, and the legislative session does not begin until March. Linda Kobert, co-founder of parent advocacy organization Fund Education Now, said Scott should make a bold move early on to demonstrate that he is listening and acting in good faith. She wants him to come out against the parent trigger bill. The legislation, supported by Republicans and charter school advocates, died in the Senate in 2012 on a tie vote. It would have allowed parents to turn low-performing public schools into charter schools, and its supporters have promised to bring it up again next year. Scott supported the bill, calling it logical. But a coalition of parent organizations, including the Florida PTA, opposed it. If the governor were to come out forcefully and publicly in support of the parentsposition on that particular piece of legislation, it would go a long way for parents trusting that he has their best interest in mind, Kobert said. But state Sen. Nancy Detert, R-Venice, doesnt think its time yet for Scott to take sides on hot-button issues. Detert, a former Sarasota County School Board member, opposed the parent trigger bill. She said she thinks Scott should focus more broadly, coming up with a comprehensive education policy that defines his administration. She noted that former Gov. Jeb Bush and his foundation still have a prominent voice. Gov. Scott needs to put his own personal stamp on what kind of system that he wants, Detert said. Most of the ideas have been coming from a previous governor, so what we need is the current governor to let us know what his thoughts are. By virtue of his highly publicized education listening tour, Scott has heightened the stakes for his education agenda. If he appears to acquiesce to unions and advocacy organizations too much, he could lose favor with the tea party activists who embraced him as an outsider. On the other hand, if the education community doesnt see its thoughts incorporated into his plan, the recent goodwill could erode.For example, Scott has said he would like to tie school funding increases to student achievement. Depending on the specifics, unions and school districts might balk at the idea that schools with more-affluent student bodies could get more money by virtue of higher test scores.Scott also must overcome criticism that he is not serious about education policy, and he must deflect accusations that he is using teachers and schools as the first wave of his 2014 reelection campaign. Already, the Republican Party of Florida has aired two television ads touting Scotts commitment to public education. And during Scotts listening tour, a Tallahassee parent was invited back to meet one-on-one with the governor next week.Were watching.

Now playing nationwide. Sliding into theaters this past weekend, Trouble with the CurveŽ is a baseball movie starring Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake and John Goodman. Its one of the few films in recent years in which Eastwood has starred, but does not direct. The director is Robert Lorenz, who has paid his dues in Hollywood, working his way from second-second assistant director, to second assistant director, to first assistant director, to assistant director and, finally, on this film, to his first job as director. Along the way, he worked with Eastwood on numerous projects including The Bridges of Madison CountyŽ and Million Dollar Baby.Ž The film was produced by The Malpaso Company, which is owned by Eastwood and his partner, none other than Trouble with the CurveŽ director, Robert Lorenz. And Eastwood and Lorenz made the movie a real family affair appearing in the film is Eastwoods son, Scott, playing Billy Clark, who needs his Mom to get out of his slump. Lorenz also put his wife and two children in the film in the diner scene. The story: Eastwoods character, Gus, is an aging baseball scout whose eyesight is failing, which will soon put him out of work. His boss Pete, played by Goodman, asks Gus daughter, Mickey, to tag along with Gus on a road trip to help out. Mickey, played by Adams, has felt abandoned by Gus her whole life, even though he took her along as a kid long enough that she grew up to be a baseball expert moonlighting as a lawyer. Timberlake is a young scout working for a different ball club, who may or may not hook up with Mickey. For viewers, the film may not be a home run, but it would have to be considered at least a solid double. Trouble with the CurveŽ has a nice, slow, easy pace, much like the tempo of an actual baseball game. And when Adams, Timberlake and Goodman are on screen, the movie livens up like a line drive deep to center. Timberlake gets all the good lines, something he manages to do in most of his films. Ms. Adams, always bright and vivacious, is easy on the eyes and excellent as Mickey.

But if theres a strike-out in the film, it has to be Eastwoods performance. He gives Gus such a crusty and ornery persona that its very hard to like him or care about what happens to him. And since one of the main plot points is that we are supposed to care whether he and Mickey will ever reconcile, its a major flaw in the film. Heres another problem: Eastwood plays Gus so much like every character hes ever played (only older and crabbier) that I half expected him to snarl Go ahead, make my oatmeal!Ž Even though Trouble with the CurveŽ is as predictable as a hanging curve ball, the story does leave the audience with the feeling that baseball, like the movies, is timeless and somehow, even if you dont follow sports, that constancy is comforting. For that reason and for the performances of Adams and Timberlake, the film is worth seeing. But dont see it because of Clint Eastwood after seeing him foul out in this role, any manager worth his salt might just have to send him down to the minors.
