When Butler went to check on her son, she and Poitier found him in the canal not responsive.Paramedics who arrived picked up the life-saving efforts but were unsuccessful. The case has been turned over to detectives from the Sheriffs Office Major Crimes Unit for further investigation. An autopsy is planned. Poitier is the son of Norma Jean Sawyer, former executive director of the Key Westbased Bahama Conch Community Land Trust. Shes serving a two-year term in state prison for stealing grant money channeled to the housing nonprofit she ran.In January 2011, a 3-yearold Marathon boy died after drowning in a pool at his parentshome in a neighborhood behind Florida Keys Marathon Airport. Asurvey of various health and safety organizations yielded ample information on pool safety for children but no specific guidelines for child safety when it comes to waterfront homes. Florida Department of Health research indicates that statewide, drowning is the No. 1 one cause of death for children ages 1 through 4.

ART IN THE PARK Commercial grouper being cutAll commercial harvest of shallow-water groupers from federal South Atlantic waters ends Saturday and stays closed for more than six months. The closure announced by the National Marine Fisheries Service has been triggered by estimates that the commercial 352,940pound annual catch limit for gag grouper, considered an overfished species, has been reached. To protect gag grouper from being harvested accidentally, all commercial fishing for all shallow-water species in waters covered by the federal South Atlantic Fishery Management Council must end at 12:01 a.m. Saturday and will be closed throughout the remainder of 2012. Recreational fishing for grouper in federal waters will not close until Jan. 1, when a regular four-month closure for commercial and recreational grouper fishing starts. Commercial harvest of shallow-water grouper will not reopen until May 1, 2013, the National Marine Fisheries Service says. The closure covers red grouper and black grouper, two species prized by Florida Keys fishermen. Last year, Monroe County commercial harvesters returned to dock with 51,346 pounds of black grouper and 46,169 pounds of red grouper, according to preliminary findings from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Also covered by the commercial grouper closure in federal waters, from North Carolina to Key West, are scamp, red hind, rock hind, yellowmouth grouper, yellowfin grouper, graysby, and coney. At its December meeting, the South Atlantic council will consider a move to allow fishing for the shallow-water grouper species even when the gag grouper limit is reached. Tom Hill of Key Largo Fisheries told the Miami Herald that the fish house may have to lay off employees who process grouper.

Druckemiller, 51, abruptly retired from her job as the countys technical services director in February after allegations surfaced she was stealing and reselling iPhones and iPads purchased with taxpayer dollars. Since then, she has been charged with felony grand theft and scheme to defraud, and been subject to a grand jury investigation that concluded she received $4,778 for 52 pieces of electronic equipment that cost the county $23,311.Monday, Druckemiller, accompanied by her son Brandon, who was arrested earlier in the month on unrelated theft charges, appeared at the Freeman Justice Center in Key West for a status conference before Chief Circuit Court Judge David Audlin.Among those who purchased items from Druckemiller are five county employees who are being required to attend administrative hearings this month with attorney David Kirwan, a former Keys judge, presiding as hearing officer.Lawyers want othersfate to play roleBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comIPAD/IPHONE SCANDALBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com DRUCKEMILLERCounty takes up horse businessThe Florida Keys may be home to sea horses, but not many actual horses.But there are some, and the Monroe County Commission may set out new rules today to define where horses can live in the unincorporated county.We do get occasional calls from people asking where they can legally keep a horse, said Christine Hurley, Monroe County Director of Growth Management. The problem is that weve never had any regulation to say where you can have a horse.In Monroe County, horses technically fall under the definition of livestock, which county land-use rules say can be allowed only on land with appropriate zoning.However, no such zones have been established in the land-development code, says a background report to the County Commission for its meeting today in Key West.Previously, requests to keep a horse were allowed or rejected by the countys individual planning directors based on their own interpretation of Monroe County codes.Hurley said county staff county gets maybe three calls a year from people want to know about keeping a horse. Those call usually come from the Lower Keys.

use panel this summer and approved Aug. 29 by the Planning Commission. The proposed law reaching the County Commission today requires that residential properties eligible to keep one or two horses must be at least a half acre in size, with the horse owners living in a legal home on the site. Horses would have to kept in a fenced area with the fence no closer than 50 feet from the nearest neighboring residence. Horses living in residential areas would be for personal use only. Under no circumstance shall the property be used for commercial purposes such as a stable or riding facility.Animal issues seem to be a recurring theme through the boards 16-page agenda for todays 9 a.m. session at the Harvey Government Center on Truman Avenue in Key West, with items including:Commissioner George Neugent wanting to discuss a $150 fee and $1 million in liability insurance for restaurants seeking to allow dogs at outdoor eating areas. The city of Marathon passed a similar law in September. Arecent state crackdown led the City Council to amend the citys code to make it legal. It created a dog-friendly restaurants section mirroring a 2006 law approved by the state Legislature. There are now several requirements for dogs to be allowed in Marathon restaurants and bars, including applying for a permit, posting a diagram of the area where dogs are allowed, keeping dogs on leashes and employees away from them while handling food, and sanitizing all tables and chairs between seatings.

Akey component is the water watcher tag that designates the adult charged with supervision via a lanyard worn around the neck. The idea is to officially designate a supervising adult as many times adults assume that someone else is watching the kids and in fact no one is watching. Information on the water watcher program, including tags, is available through the Monroe County Health Department. Call Injury Prevention Coordinator Chris Tittel at 809-5653.Water safety should ruleFrom Child,1ARobert Cintron, Lisa Druckemillers attorney, told Audlin he wants to allow that disciplinary process to play out and be a basis with the Monroe County State Attorneys Office over a plea deal.We want to know what that sanction will be, he said. We believe the outcome of that bears on Ms. Druckemiller. Ron Strauss, Cintrons co-counsel, said plea talks with Assistant State Attorney Mark Wilson had been pretty fruitful about what sanctions should be imposed but we havent reached a complete agreement. Its widely believed Wilson is seeking two years in prison for Druckemiller, who has indicated she would plead guilty. The former 31year county staffer could lose her state retirement. Given notices to appear for the administrative hearings were Deputy County Administrator Debbie Frederick, Finance Director Tina Boan, county Systems Analyst Hank Kokenzie, sewer-project administrator Elizabeth Wood, and Lacy Caraballo of the Guardian Ad Litem program. County Administrator Roman Gastesi paid Druckemiller $899 for three iPhones and one iPad worth $2,325; he received a formal letter of reprimand from the County Commission. Since commissioners decided Gastesi was ineligible to handle employee discipline in the matter in which he was involved, the administrator agreed to pay the cost of contracting with Kirwan ($250 hourly) and former county Sheriff Rick Roth ($50 hourly) to handle the investigation and hearings. Druckemillers next court date is Nov. 26Plea might await othersFrom Druckemiller,1A Joe Allen, Democratic candidate for Monroe County clerk of the court, has largely been an absentee challenger to Republican Amy Heavilin, considered likely to get elected Nov. 6 to a four-year term. But Allen made a rare public appearance at a Monday night candidate forum in Key West.Allen, a retired teacher, closed off the August primary with his last-minute entry against Heavilin and three other GOPcandidates. Since then, he has done virtually no campaigning and not responded to media inquiries. Monday at the Hometown PAC event at Key West International Airport, Allen demonstrated a tenuous grasp of the largely recordkeeping clerk role, suggesting he could somehow make legal proceedings more fair for parties involved in litigation but stopping short of offering specifics.Allen said he has repeatedly reached out to Clerk Danny Kolhage, who after three decades as clerk will be seated in November as the county commissioner in District 1. The Democrat ran with no opposition. Allen said he sought to serve as some sort of intern. [Kolhage] has never responded to give me the inside dope.Heavilin, director of the Monroe County Sheriffs Office Finance Division, discussed the need for the clerks office to comply with a state mandate coming in 2013 related to electronic filing of court documents in civil and criminal cases.If elected, she said one of her first priorities would be to really evaluate where we are and where we need to be.Allen said he would begin the conversion to efiling as soon as possible. Whatever is in my power to get done early, Ill do.Another line of questioning highlighted the clerks auditing function, particularly in light of the countys iPhone/iPad scandal that saw a former department head allegedly steal and resell, in some cases to other county employees, electronics purchased with taxpayer money.In 2010, Kolhage conducted an audit of telecommunications policy and recommended, among other things, much stricter controls over the assignment and tracking of phones.I think the clerk did their job the way theyre supposed to in that case, Heavilin said, adding she would bring accounting techniques from her finance job that could help identify and mitigate similar problems.Changes need to be made to watch out for this in the future, Allen said.

Abusted auto-tag light Friday evening led to a handful of drug charges for a pair of Miami and Key West residents after police discovered 142 grams of marijuana and six oxycodone pills in their car, authorities say. Key West resident Brandi Harley, 26, was charged with felony marijuana possession and intent to sell, as well as misdemeanor drug paraphernalia possession. Miami resident Sierra Williams, 26, was charged with felony controlled substance possession without a prescription. According to the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, police pulled a beige fourdoor Nissan driven by Williams over on 33rd Street in Marathon around 9 p.m. Friday. Officers smelled marijuana coming from the car and requested to search the suspects and vehicle, agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin said. The agency says officers found under the drivers seat a bag containing hundreds of very small, purple in color, Ziploc type bags used to package marijuana. Amore thorough search turned up a bag protruding from the side paneling near the floorboard. It contained 95 individual plastic bags of marijuana, Herrin said.Harley reportedly told police the marijuana belonged to her, but once given her Miranda rights, refused to give the same statement.Williams, meanwhile, had a prescription bottle not belonging to her that contained oxycodone pills.Overall, the marijuana weighed just over 142 grams, or five ounces. Harley and Williams were booked into jail; a third passenger in the car was released.proper science to make good decisions, Hill said. We need a good stock assessment and were not getting it. The closure does not affect state waters or federal Gulf of Mexico waters. Commercial fishermen with regular federal snapper-grouper permits can fish for grouper under recreational bag limits but cannot legally sell their catch.

D Grouper fishery shutsdownFrom Grouper,1ABPfish testing program enters final phaseThe U.S. Department of Agriculture will ask lawmakers to approve the use of the final $1.5 million from BPto continue a seafood testing program through October next year. The 2010 agreement which expires in October 2013 provided a total of $10 million for the program to test seafood for ill effects from the 2010 BPoil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Just over $3.3 million has been spent, and another $5.1 million is budgeted for the current year. State agencies had until Monday to submit proposed budgets for the coming year, and the agriculture agency included the spending authority for the final installment of the BPmoney in its proposal. In particular, the agencys testing program checks seafood for hydrocarbons, dispersants and heavy metals, and anticipates taking 80 samples of shellfish and finfish per month. Failure to adequately fund this work will result in decreased consumer confidence in purchasing and eating Florida gulf seafood, lack of scientific evidence that can be shared with the public and other entities to confirm that Florida gulf seafood is safe to consume, and potentially place the consumer at risk for the consumption of Florida gulf seafood that has not been consistently tested, the agency said.$10 million was budgeted since 2010News Service of FloridaOUR FISHERIES Cops find pot, oxy during traffic stopCar pulled over for busted lightMIDDLE KEYS Photo courtesy SHERIFFS OFFICEThese individually wrapped bags of marijuana and hundredsof empty plastic bags were found during the Friday night traffic stop in Marathon.Keynoter StaffState agencies had until Monday to submit proposed budgets for the coming year,and the agriculture agency included the spending authority for the final installment of the BP money in its proposal.

The first step is a federal feasibility study slated to cost $3 million. Actual dredging, which appears to be against federal law establishing the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, is projected to cost more than $30 million. Tonights session begins at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street. Following the presentations, the commission will vote whether to request the feasibility study from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Included in the wording is a specific directive: Authorizing city staff to pursue funding from public and private sources for the feasibility study; providing that the feasibility study shall be at no cost to the city of Key West.The Key West Chamber of Commerce has been a staunch supporter of the dredging, pointing to $80.7 million in revenue generated from more than 800,000 cruisers who stopped through Key West in 2011-12.Environmental advocacy group Last Stand says dredging to widen the channel would create myriad ecological concerns. Also in the mix is the Key West Seaport Alliance headed by John DolanHeitlinger, which paints access through the supports pursuing a feasibility study.Session focuses on wide channelKEY WESTKeynoter Staff Trumbo sale still on the tableKeeping with his three predecessors, Superintendent Mark Porter agrees that the Monroe County School District should sell the main administrative complex on Trumbo Point in Key West.The initial concept in 2007 involved then-Superintendent Randy Acevedo working with then-Key West Mayor Morgan McPherson on a plan to convert the 5.5 waterfront adjacent acres into an affordable housing community. The housing component never materialized, but Acevedos successors, Joseph Burke, followed by Jesus Jara and now Porter, agree the property should be sold and the districts administrative staff decentralized or otherwise geographically dispersed.Porter said he would like to pursue a sale of the property while recognizing any real property transaction in the Florida Keys and in particular Key West is anything but routine.I do believe this is an effort that needs to be undertaken soon, even before finalization of our strategic plan, as it is obvious to me that we have sufficient space and resources elsewhere to meet the districts needs at this time.Porter has pledged to deliver to the School Board a multi-faceted strategic plan by the end of the school year. The acreage has six buildings on it with a combined assessed value of $9.1, million according to the Monroe County Property Appraisers Office. With administrative ranks down to around only 40 staffers, previous plans have called to move the central office to Marathon High School, or split up functions between space in Key West, Marathon and Sugarloaf School. One space option for the district is at Glynn Archer Elementary School. Last week, the Key West City Commission voted unanimously to execute a contract with the School District to take control of the building to be restored as a new city hall. Part of the transfer arrangement allows office space in the city portion plus a shared meeting chamber, while the district also retains ownership of two buildings on the Glynn Archer parcel. Also in exchange for Glynn Archer, the city is giving the district about one acre of land on Stock Island next to Gerald Adams Elementary to use for bus parking, something thats done at Trumbo right now.Porter described the deal in an e-mail: It was simply acknowledged and understood that the School District would in all likelihood seek a more appropriate long-term use of Trumbo Point, which would then result in the need for additional bus storage space.Small staff at headquarters is big reasonBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSEco-crime money going to bay healthMoney from environmental-violation fines will help Everglades National Park map sea life on the bottom of Florida Bay in coming months.Its important to get this baseline assessment done to determine the success of Everglades and Florida Bay restoration efforts, Don Finefrock, executive director of the South Florida National Parks Trust, said Tuesday. The project to create an updated baseline assessment of benthic habitat in Florida Bay is intended to reveal what kind of effects and benefits were seeing, and where, as efforts progress to deliver more fresh water to the park and ultimately to the bay, Finefrock said. Knowing the current condition of seagrass beds and sponge populations will pinpoint which of these areas are doing well and which need more focus, he said.South Florida National Parks Trust board Chairman Neal McAliley released the organizations awards of $230,000 in total grants for 10 major projects in Biscayne National Park, Dry Tortugas National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve and Everglades National Park (which covers most of Florida Bay).Much of the money comes from a portion of fines or settlements assessed for federal environmental crimes and violations. The Trust pledged $35,000 to the bay assessment, about half the total estimated cost intended to serve as a matching grant to pry loose some additional funding, Finefrock said. Most of the bay research work will be done by National Park Service staff, with the possibility to adding seasonal workers to verify analysis made using existing aerial photographs. The only other $35,000 grant is for installing floating markers to reduce boat groundings at the shallow Featherbed Banks in Biscayne National Park.Other funded projects affecting Florida Bay include:$25,000 to hire a seasonal park-enforcement officer to patrol the bay during the busy winter months.$20,000 to promote safe boating and resource protection on Florida Bay by expanding the Eco-Mariner education program.$15,000 to fund a community ranger at Everglades National Park who visits classrooms, attends events and presents programs about South Floridas national parks and regional wildlife. Earlier this year, the Trust awarded Dry Tortugas National Park a $15,000 grant to monitor, manage and remove exotic and invasive lionfish from the park waters.The Trust was created a decade ago to allocate a portion of $8 million in fines paid by Carnival Cruise Lines for polluting nearshore waters. The Trusts last remaining money from the Carnival settlement, about $30,000, will be spent this year.Parks Trust targeting habitatsENVIRONMENTBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org
Mid-Keys Sand and Rock owners Glenn and Barbara Hewlett were feeling much better Monday than they were in July about their request to use a vacant 120th Street lot in Marathon to run their business. Neighborhood complaints and Planning Commission concerns led the couple at the time to pull a conditional-use request to use the 17,500-square-foot lot, zoned mixed-use commercial, as a retail supply yard and for outdoor storage of pea rock and sand. The Hewletts brought back essentially the same request (only minor language changes were made) Monday and received a unanimous 3-0 vote in favor of the project. Planning commissioners Marien Aran Spinrad and Ralph Lucignano were absent. The Hewletts allayed concerns about the amount of heavy equipment deliveries per day by agreeing to a maximum of three, and also agreed to a restriction on business hours from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. They also agreed to heavily landscape the area so that its blocked from view of the residential neighbors on 120th Street and from U.S. 1. Should you choose to recommend this to the City Council, I would recommend the buffer be enhanced over what city code requires ... both in terms of stature and in number of trees, Planning Director George Garrett said. Mid-Keys Sand and Rock does business over the phone now, with Glenn Hewlett trucking in supplies from the mainland when needed. They were looking to expand and accommodate customers requiring smaller amounts of material for local jobs. The Hewletts have owned the business since 2006. Glenn Hewlett told the commission the business would store, at most, a backhoe, small bulldozer, dump truck, equipment trailer and dump trailer on the property. By no means are we trying to upset anyone in the neighborhood, Hewlett attorney Rich Malafy said. Were not trying to deteriorate anyones property values. I would propose they would increase. The property now is dilapidated. Were going to clean it up, put landscape buffers in and make it look nicer. Attorney Jack Bridges, representing property owners on the opposite side of U.S. 1 from the 120th Street lot, as well as a homeowner in the actual subdivision, spoke against the project. We cant control the future of this property. Once its been approved, the door is open, Bridges said. Moreover, we do have a noise problem. Its always something we have to listen to when people crank up dump trucks and bobcats. But the commission ultimately sided with the Hewletts, even denying Bridgesrequest to restrict hours to 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. The Hewletts are attempting to buy the lot from owners Jim and Pat Aultman. For years, the Aultmans owned a construction company in Marathon, and in a July 12 letter to the city said the property has been used for outdoor storage for 37 years without complaint. It was used as outdoor storage during the construction of the duplexes, houses and commercial building that we built and has always been outdoor storage, Jim Aultman wrote, referring to the homes in the 120th Street subdivision. The conditional use will now be heard before the City Council at a future meeting. The date has yet to be determined.Final decision is going to City CouncilBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com Wednesday,October 17,2012 5A Keynoter KeysNet.com For more information go to www.keylargopiratesfest.com or call Sue Finney at 305-394-3736 $5 Captain Specials at participating locations.Pirate Parade & Bash Pirate Shows & Invasion Underwater Treasure Hunt Thieves Market Pirates Poker Run Pirate-themed Brunches AAARRRGGGHHH!!

EDITORIALVote Heavilin for court clerkEDITORIAL:ELECTION 2012Florida voters will find a flurry of state constitutional amendments on the November ballot. The Republican-controlled Legislature put many of them there. All of them are bad policy and should be resoundingly rejected by voters. Heres the rundown, just so you know the true score on these ballot busters:Amendment 1: Health Care Services.This would empower Florida to opt out of federal health-care reform. Since the U.S. Supreme Court has already weighed in on this, consider these sour grapes from Republican lawmakers who lost on appeal before the highest court in the land. Vote no.Amendment 2: Veterans Disabled Due to Combat Injury; Homestead Property Tax Discount. This would expand the homestead exemption to disabled vets who were not Florida residents when they entered military service. Reads like a good cause, but using constitutional amendments is the wrong way to affect tax policy on something like homestead exemptions. Vote no.Amendment 3: State Government Revenue Limitation. This would replace existing revenue limits based on Florida personal income growth with a new state revenue limitation tied to inflation and population changes.This same law passed in Colorado in 1992 and adversely impacted that states ability to fund essential public services. Bad law, bad precedent. Vote no.Amendment 4: Property Tax Limitation; Property Value Decline; Reduction for Non-Homestead Assessment Increases; Delay of Scheduled Repeal. This would reduce assessment limits from 10 percent to 5 percent; prohibit increases in assessed value of homesteaded property and certain nonhomesteaded property when market values decrease; give first-time homesteaders an additional exemption equal to 50 percent of the median just value of the property (this exemption then diminishes to zero over five years); and extend homestead benefits to out-ofstate residents. If passed, this would cost local governments $1 billion in lost revenue over the first three years. Real estate and development interests are heavily promoting it. And its bad policy to set in stone with a constitutional amendment. Vote no.Amendment 5: State Courts.This tampers with the separation of powers in a very bad way, adding Senate confirmation over appointment of Florida Supreme Court justices (now appointed by the governor). It would also authorize repeal of court rule by a simple majority vote of the Legislature (now a two-thirds majority vote is required). It would also give the Florida House power to review all files of the Judicial Qualifications Commission, which nominates judges.This is retribution by the GOP-controlled Legislature because the states highest court has rejected language on some constitutional amendments drafted by lawmakers in the past, and exercised the courtsindependence, which frustrates some ideologues who put party first. Vote no.Amendment 6: Prohibition on Public Funding of Abortions; Construction of Abortion Rights.The religious right pushes this agenda through constitutional amendments and draft legislation across numerous states. Florida voters should reject out of hand this effort to impose a religious dictate on public institutions. Vote no.Amendment 8: Religious Freedom.This would repeal a 126-year-old provision in the Florida Constitution that prohibits taxpayer funding of religious institutions and is another push by religious zealots to impose their belief system on the public. Vote no.Amendment 9: Homestead Property Tax Exemption for Surviving Spouse of Military Veteran or First Responder.Reads like a good cause, but using constitutional amendments is the wrong way to affect tax policy on something like homestead exemptions. Vote no.Amendment 10: Tangible Personal Property Tax Exemption. This would raise from $25,000 to $50,000 the tangible personal property exemption for businesses. Local governments already have the authority to grant such incentives if they choose. Using a constitutional amendment to tinker with tax policy is the wrong way to go. Vote no.Amendment 11: Additional Homestead Exemption for LowIncome Seniors Who Maintain LongTerm Residency on Property; Equal to Assessed Value. This would exempt from property tax low-income seniors who have lived in their home for at least 25 years. Reads like a good cause, but using constitutional amendments is the wrong way to affect tax policy on homestead exemptions. Vote no.Amendment 12: Appointment of Student Body President to Board of Governors of the State University System. Creates a council of student body presidents and empowers the chair to sit on the 17-member Board of Governors, which governs the state university system. The president of the Florida Student Association is already a member of the board.This is redundant and should not further muck up the constitution. Vote no.Sheriffs Office experience clearly shows shes more fit for job than her opponentAmy Heavilin, 46, is the chief financial officer for the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, a certified public accountant and the chief internal auditor for the 600member department. She is the most qualified to be our next Monroe clerk of courts based on her experience and temperament. Her challenger, retired teacher Trinidad Joe Allen, is barely a candidate. Hes done virtually nothing to campaign other than put his name on the ballot and close the Republican primary held in August. Heavilin has been endorsed by the current sheriff and former Sheriff Rick Roth. Shes drawn support across a broad spectrum of voting blocs, including the conservative Republicans in Ocean Reef in North Key Largo as well as from Democrats and independents in Key West. During campaign appearances, Heavilin has talked about the need to convert the clerks office to more efficient electronic processing, which is critical given a state deadline of October 2013 to have all 67 counties on electronic filing for both civil and criminal proceedings. Heavilin has already done a major conversion of this type as CFO with the Sheriffs Office, transforming from old, paper-driven records to electronic documents and files that reduced waste in the department. And since the Sheriffs Office is the largest department in county government, that says a lot about her experience and fitness for the new job. At the Sheriffs Office, she also introduced systems that track line-item spending for multiple departments. That discipline will serve the County Commission well and, who knows, may prevent any future iPad scandals by flagging questionable spending earlier than ever before. She brings fresh perspective to the clerks post, including the idea of partnering with Florida Keys Community College so students can intern at the clerks office while obtaining credit toward graduation. We endorse Amy Heavilin for clerk of the court.Cuban government loosens exit visa ruleThe Cuban government said Tuesday that it will no longer require islanders to apply for an exit visa, eliminating a much-loathed bureaucratic procedure that has been a major impediment for many seeking to travel overseas for more than a half-century.Anotice published in Communist Party newspaper Granma said the change takes effect Jan. 14, and beginning on that date islanders will only have to show their passport and a visa from the country they are traveling to.It is the most significant advance this year in President Raul Castros five-year plan of reform that has already seen the legalization of home and car sales and a big increase in the number of Cubans owning private businesses. As part of the work under way to update the current migratory policy and adjust it to the conditions of the present and the foreseeable future, the Cuban government, in exercise of its sovereignty, has decided to eliminate the procedure of the exit visa for travel to the exterior, read the notice. Migration is a highly politicized issue in Cuba and beyond its borders. Under the wet-foot, dryfoot policy, the United States allows nearly all Cubans who reach its territory to remain. Granma published an accompanying editorial blaming the travel restrictions on U.S. attempts to topple the islands government, plant spies and recruit its best-educated citizens. It is because of this that any analysis of Cubas problematic migration inevitably passes through the policy of hostility that the U.S. government has developed against the country for more than 50 years, the editorial said. It assured Cubans that the government recognizes their right to travel abroad and said the new measure is part of an irreversible process of normalization of relations between emigrants and their homeland.On the streets of Havana, the news was met with a mixture of delight and astonishment, after all the previous times over the years when officials spoke of their desire to lift the exit visa, but talk failed to turn into concrete change.No! Wow, how great! said Mercedes Delgado, a 73year-old retiree when told of the news that was announced overnight. Citizensrights are being restored.Look, I ask myself how far are we going to go with these changes. They have me a little confused because now all that was done during 50 years, it turns out were changing it, said Maria Romero, a cleaning worker who was headed to her job Tuesday morning. Everything they told us then, it wasnt true. I tell you, I dont understand anything.Cubans now will also not have to present the longrequired letter of invitation from a foreign institution or person in the country they plan to visit. The measure also extends to 24 months the amount of time Cubans can remain abroad, and they can request an extension when that runs out. Currently, Cubans lose residency and other rights including social security and free health care and education after 11 months. Still, the notice said Cuba plans to put limits on travel within unspecified sectors. Doctors, scientists, members of the military and others considered valuable parts of society currently face restrictions on travel to combat brain drain. The update to the migratory policy takes into account the right of the revolutionary state to defend itself from the interventionist and subversive plans of the U.S. government and its allies, the note said. Therefore, measures will remain to preserve the human capital created by the revolution in the face of the theft of talent applied by the powerful. Cuba has on some occasions denied exit visas to government when they sought to travel abroad, and dissident blogger Yoani Sanchez said she has been turned down 20 times the past five years. I have the suitcase ready to travel.... Lets see if I get a flight for Jan. 14, 2013, to try out the new law. But she expressed concern that officials might now control travel merely by denying passports. Granmas editorial said the measure will help address the needs of the Cuban diaspora. More than 1 million people of Cuban origin live in the United States, and thousands more are in Europe. Associated Press writer Anne-Marie Garcia contributed to this report.OK to leave not required as of Jan.14By ANDREA RODRIGUEZ and PETER ORSIAssociated PressIMMIGRATIONOur take on proposed constitutional amendments LETTERS TO THE EDITORGreat pirates partySave-A-Turtle and the Marathon Wild Bird Center would like to thank Cabana Breezes for the best Conchtoberfest Pirates Party ever. Each nonprofit made more than $1,000. Thank you to all that attended and we cant wait for next year. Cabana Breezes is a fine restaurant with the best staff ever. Rick Sall, president Save-A-Turtle MarathonSay no to amendmentsEach of the 11 proposed amendments to Floridas Constitution was placed on the ballot by lawmakers, not citizens, and jeopardizes some of our core principles the balance of power, right to privacy and separation of church and state. Amendment 5 (state courts) seeks to undermine the intent of our nonpartisan judicial nominating system, tipping the balance of power in favor of political branches by giving them greater influence in the selection of judges appointed to Floridas Supreme Court. Amendment 6 (prohibition on public funding of abortions) means the right to privacy is not applicable to abortion-related issues by the Florida Constitution. Amendment 8 (so-called religious freedom) would allow taxpayer funding of religious institutions. It would allow public money to be used for religious indoctrination. It would allow expansion of voucher funds to be directed to religious schools at the expense of our public schools. While there are strong arguments against each amendment, I want to also address the economic impact of amendments 2, 3, 4, 9, 10 and 11, which in diverse ways address tax limits, exemptions and loopholes. If adopted, these amendments would force massive cuts to state services, worsen our declining infrastructure, and harm our quality of life. As for Amendment 3 (new state revenue cap), in Colorado the only state where similar legislation has been passed (more than 30 states have rejected proposals like this) the states ability to fund essential public services like education, transportation and health care suffered drastically so Colorado voters decided to suspend the policy in 2005. Why should Florida follow a failed example? Then look at Amendment 4 (commercial/first-time homebuyers, tax exemptions). It would lead to $1 billion in cuts to local government services in the first three years alone a loss that Floridas citizens cant afford because it would lead to higher and higher taxes to support the services we now have. Our Florida Constitution is a document intended to be almost impossible to change and kept sacred for the purpose of defining the structure of our government. Amendments, once passed, are extremely difficult to change or modify. If you do support any one of these ideas, have your state representative introduce them as a statute as they should be. I encourage fellow taxpayers to take a good, long look at these confusing, complex, misleading, democracythreatening choices and then vote no across the board. Phyllis Mitchell IslamoradaGet a compassI would like to respond to an article in a recent edition of the Keynoter about the possible annexation of Key Haven and south Stock Island by the city of Key West. If you would stand on the sidewalk out on U.S. 1 and look toward Florida Keys Community College and the Sheriffs Office, and then look at a compass, you would find out that you are looking at north Stock Island and not south Stock Island. This is a common mistake made by most people who are new to the Keys. I usually correct them by saying that they dont call Key West Key South for a reason. John Buschman Edgewater, Fla. Cubans now will also not have to present the long-required letter of invitation from a foreign institution or person in the country they plan to visit.

If so, they may be feeling less satisfied with their personal lives. More than one-third of U.S. adults surveyed by Harris Interactive on behalf of management consultancy Working Simply say that constantly checking their email during their personal time prevents them from fully engaging with people or activities. Very few people are eager to be connected to the office when they are off the clock, the results show. When asked if they were excited to remain in contact with their work during their personal time, just 7 percent strongly agreed with that statement, while 43 percent strongly disagreed.Goal: Make it easier for small firmsAssociated PressSMALL BUSINESSRewards to employees ramping upIn pushing for healthier employees, Florida Power & Lights parent company is charging well ahead of the pack, offering up to $1,640 a year to some employees for good behavior while punishing others by threatening to take away up to $30 out of each biweekly paycheck. As South Florida employers prepare to stage open enrollments for 2013 health insurance, the offering of carrots for healthy actions keeps ramping up, but Next Era Energy, owner of Florida Power & Light, is leading the way among the regions large employers with threatening with a stick, as well. Some companies are making only minor tweaks, but at least one large employer is struggling to deal with skyrocketing catastrophic claims. Meanwhile, some experts say the truly major changes are a year away, in 2014 a time when many employees might find themselves in a virtual shopping mall, choosing health insurance with company-provided credits. As always, costs keep rising. The Aon Hewitt consulting company projects healthcare costs for large employers in South Florida will increase 6.4 percent in 2013, to $9,788. Workers should expect a 9 percent increase spending about $5,000 out of their own pockets for their share of premiums, deductibles and co-pays. Another consulting company, Mercer, reports that most of its large-company clients are passing only minor cost increases to their employees. Its been a great year for employees, said Matthew Snook of Mercers Tampa office. Most Mercer clients are making very, very calm rates of increase to employees, generally 3 percent to 5 percent. Employers are being kind of gentle. Thats whats happening at the University of Miami. Spokeswoman Margot Winick reported: Our health plan costs have risen slightly but the percentage is still far below national and local trend rates. For 2013, most faculty and staff will see a monthly increase of $1 to $5 in their premium costs, but no changes in deductibles or co-pays. Bigger changes and potential awards are ahead for workers at Next Era Energy and its subsidiaries. For the past six years, Next Era has been ramping up awards for employees who fill out health assessments on the web, said Melissa Miller, Next Eras benefits director. These self-estimates can trigger automatic responses, suggesting programs available for certain risk factors, such as overweight diabetics. That might be followed up by a call from a professional recommending lifestyle changes. We have 12 dedicated nurses and coaches to help them improve their health, Miller said. While completing the assessments has previously been rewarded with bonuses, FPLthis fall sent a letter to union employees stating that, starting Jan. 1, $15 per employee or $30 per couple will be deducted from biweekly paychecks if less than 80 percent of union workers and covered spouses dont fill out the assessment.BenchmarksOther incentives are available at Next Era. Nonunion employees and covered spouses who undergo a simple physical exam can get $100 each for meeting benchmarks for blood pressure, cholesterol and weight. That adds up to a potential $600 a year that can be placed in a health reimbursement account, to pay for deductibles and other healthcare needs, Miller said. The use of weight is particularly interesting. Health-care experts have long known that obese employees cost companies more, but many consultants have warned against penalizing fat employees because workers could claim their weight is due to a medical condition, such as a thyroid problem, or genetics, opening the possibility of a discrimination lawsuit. Next Eras solution is to use weight as a reward, not a punishment. Were not trying for ideals in the benchmark, says Miller, the benefits director.

Very astute students walk through the doors of your college with a check list, said Mallekzadeh, dean of Kansas State Universitys College of Business Administration. They are asking: Do you have an entrepreneurial center, and an international business center, a financial trading center, a place to start a new business? And by the way, do you have an espresso machine? And the answers need to be yes if you want to stay competitive. Lots of universities are saying yes right now, erecting big new buildings for their business schools, facilities filled with 21st-century technology to support the latest teaching methods. The University of Kansas last week announced plans for a $60 million building for its School of Business, double the size of the current facility. The University of Missouri-Kansas City already has its new b-school building in the works. K-State expects to put up a $50 million building in the near future. Call it a business school building arms race thats how Robert Mittelstaedt, the dean of Arizona State Universitys Top 25 business school, puts it. His schools new building, scheduled to open next year, is not just to attract more students, but to make room for all the stuff weve now got crammed into a five-pound bag, he said. Alist compiled by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business shows that more than 100 business schools across the country have either completed a new building this year, renovated or expanded an old one, or are raising money for a new one. Among other regional entries: new buildings for Washington University in St. Louis, to open in 2013, Oklahoma State University (2015) and the University of Nebraska (2016). My personal survey of the landscape shows that there is an increased emphasis on building new business schools tied to an increased interest in naming opportunities from alumni, said Douglas Viehland, executive director of the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs. When UMKCs new 65,000-square-foot, fourstory building opens next fall, it will include a business startup brainstorming area and innovation lab. Its being built with a $32 million gift UMKC received from Henry W. Bloch in 2011. KUs push for a new building started Thursday with a $20 million gift from the Capitol Federal Savings Foundation. The building will allow KU to adopt new methods of teaching business, dean Neeli Bendapudi said. The professor at the head of a lecture hall or classroom is the way of the past. Students now work in teams, creating their own businesses and taking them from the classroom to the market. They work on mock international trading floors and in simulated business environments. K-State will soon launch a campus-wide fundraising campaign that will include money for a new business college building on its Manhattan campus. The existing building is more than 100 years old and not big enough for the schools 2,600 business students, Mallekzadeh said. The result: 60 percent of business classes are held elsewhere on campus.Most soughtNationally, more students pursue bachelor degrees in business than in any other area of study, said Viehland, whose accreditation council represents 1,100 twoand four-year campuses, public and private. And according to the Business School Journal, the country saw a sharp rise in the volume of business masters degrees granted, from fewer than 5,000 in 1960 to more than 100,000 in 2000. Viehland said that pattern of growth has continued over the last decade, albeit slowing some through the recession. But he said it is picking up steam as the economy improves. With the growth has come increased competition for students hence the drive to build more innovative business school facilities. That has been the history and that is the projection for the future, Viehland said. You can say that colleges are bullish on business education. Theyre bullish back East, where the University at Albany, the State University of New York, is eagerly waiting the completion next fall of a $64 million business school building. The architectural firm that designed the new building has in the last decade designed 18 bschool buildings across the country.Schools build business nodes to get studentsMARA ROSE WILLIAMSKansas City StarTHE WORKPLACE WALTERSON
The state Board of Education put a price tag on the states share of a transition to digital learning materials for public school students across Florida $441 million while signaling that it also supports school districts having more freedom to select their textbooks.The digital learning figure is part of the state Department of Educations $15.2 billion budget request to the Legislature, which would mark a 4.4 percent increase in the departments spending plan above the current fiscal year. The board approved the request Tuesday.Lawmakers are expected to potentially have a $71.3 million surplus to work with for the budget year that begins July 1, but even some budget-writers are cautious of that figure. Lawmakers have helped drive the state toward more reliance on digital learning materials, passing a bill two years ago requiring schools to adopt digital-only textbooks by the 2015-16 school year and spend at least half their textbook budget on electronic materials.The budget proposal from the department focuses more on the nuts-and-bolts approach to making that happen: Setting up schools with the capability to make iPads and Kindles useful and making sure that students actually have the devices.The plan would devote almost $239 million to equipping schools with wireless Internet capabilities, something that 1,616 schools in Florida almost half the total lack. It would take another $151 million to make sure that every school in the state has access to quality broadband Internet access; 263 schools in Florida have no broadband access at all. The final $51.7 million would be spent to defray some of the costs of increasing the number of computing devices that students could use such as iPads, though the department would not require districts to use a certain brand or device. The proposal accounts for leasing each of the devices for three years at $170 a year. Thats a great price, said David Stokes, chief information officer for the State Department of Florida. Well, how are we going to do that? Its going to be extremely challenging. Stokes said he believed the state could get the deal by working with vendors. At the same time, board members are preparing to challenge the textbook adoption process.Districts have to use the state list created by the process for some, but not all, of their textbook purchases. But several board members voiced support for getting rid of textbook adoption, freeing districts to use whatever materials they want for the classroom.Roberto Martinez, vice chairman of the board, said the move would allow school districts more flexibility to reach goals set by the state. If they want to use textbooks, let them use textbooks, he said. If they want to use primary-source material, fine. Digital, fine. Whatever it is. But I think were at that stage where we can give them that kind of freedom to accomplish the outcomes that we want.Atextbook flexibility bill included in the departments priorities would begin to move the state away from the process. Instead, officials envision a system where the department will offer to vet materials for districts that might not have the resources to review the materials on their own. Okaloosa County Superintendent Alexis Tibbetts, president of the Florida Association of District School Superintendents, enthusiastically supported the change.Thats going to be the answer to prayer, she said. But board members and supporters of the move warned that any effort to get rid of the policy will likely face a fierce fight in the Legislature by publishers. Indeed, Jay Diskey, executive director of the school division of the Association of American Publishers, said the state should preserve textbook adoption. The process in Florida has been a way for Florida to ensure that its school standards appear in the curriculum, Diskey said. He also noted that Florida is one of nearly 40 states preparing to move toward a more standardized curriculum.Many schools still lacking wireless WebBy BRANDON LARRABEENews Service of Florida KeysNet.com Keynoter 8A Wednesday,October 17,2012 THE TOP 9 REASONSNOT TO SETTLEFOR U-VERSEGet more of what you love with XFINITY.

Story, 3B B Sports & OutdoorsFishing CommunityLifestyle Canes hope to rebound against FinsAdd the celebrations and trappings of Coral Shores High Schools homecoming to the annual island rivalry game against Marathon High School, being played Friday in Tavernier. Any time we play Marathon, forget about season records and conference playoffs, Hurricane head coach Ed Holly said Monday.This ones all about local bragging rights, said Holly, preparing for his second Keys clash with the Dolphins. These guys play against each other in two or three sports, and have for most of their lives. Everybody knows everybody.The Hurricanes have the better record and home-field advantage, but also the distractions of a weeks worth of homecoming-related activities.This should be a fun week for our players but theyve got to stay focused, Holly said. We know Marathon is going to be wellcoached and show up ready to play. Kickoff at George M. Barley Jr. Stadium is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Friday. Coral Shores stands at 4-3 overall and 3-2 in the Southeastern Conferences South Division; Marathon is 1-6 overall and 0-5 in the conference. The Canes suffered their first shutout in an 18-0 loss to Southeastern-South leader LaSalle Jesuit (5-2 overall, 50 conference) last Friday in Coconut Grove. ACane win would have created a three-way tie for the division lead but now it looks like Coral Shores will take the Souths third-place seed in conference playoffs starting Oct. 25. LaSalle did a very good job defending what we do offensively, Holly said. The score is misleading because it was not a lopsided game at all. It was pretty evenly matched. The host Royal Lions scored on a well-executed opening drive but did not score again on offense in the first half.Coral Shoreshalted a Lionsfourth-and-goal from the Hurricane 2-yard line, but allowed a safety on the following possession. Halftime saw LaSalle holding a 9-0 lead.Cane defenders shut down a third-quarter LaSalle threat only to see the Royals hit a 48-yard field goal, a remarkable range for a prep kicker. LaSalle did not score its second touchdown until the closing minutes of the game.Holly said Cane defensiveHomecoming game Friday night in TavernierLASALLE 18,CORAL SHORES 0By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com CURLEY 37,MARATHON 0Mistakes doom DolphinsTurnovers, miscues and a seemingly endless stream of flags turned what should have been a close game into a 37-0 home loss for the Marathon High School football team Friday. Until a 92-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter, the Dolphins and Archbishop Curley High were separated by just 15 yards of total offense 318 and 333, respectively. It was our best offensive output by far. Our offensive line blocked the best they have all year, coach Lance Martin. The Dolphins even won the time-of-possession battle, running 58 offensive plays. But Curley took better care of the football, turning it over just one time to Marathons five. When you put the ball on the ground seven times and lose four, and drop five passes and not score four times inside the 15-yard line, its frustrating, coach Lance Martin said. Marathon has struggled offensively all season in what have largely been solid defensive efforts. But that wasnt the case Friday; the Dolphins had plenty of running room. Dominic Cavitt rushed 16 times for 92 yards, while Ian Almodovar had 10 carries for 75 yards. Quarterback Roberto Perez was 8-for-18 passing for 102 yards and one interception. Down 7-0, Marathons ensuing drive was a microcosm of its entire evening.

Roberts hurt, will sit outThe Key West High School football team lost quarterback Donald Roberts to a head injury in the first quarter, and then went on to lose to American High, 2114, Friday night at Ted Hendricks Field in Miami.Roberts, a senior and one of the teams top running threats, suffered a helmet-to-helmet blow with the score tied, 7-7, and was replaced by sophomore Juwan Brown, who played the rest of the game.Trainer Richard Fuentes examined Roberts on the sideline, administering concussion tests. He was asked what month it was, and he said December, coach Johnny Hughes said. On Monday, it was determined that Roberts had sustained a mild concussion. He will not play in the Conchs game Friday night against Hialeah Miami Lakes at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium. No contact for seven days, Hughes said. After trailing American at the half, 13-7, the Conchs who dropped to 4-3 came back with an 81-yard drive on their first possession of the third quarter.The drive was highlighted by a 53-yard run by Dorian Cannon to the American 3yard line. On the next play, Elliott Valdez ran for a touchdown. Ricardo Gomezs extrapoint kick made it 14-13.That lead stood until midway through the fourth quarter. With the Patriots driving, Anthony Henriquez recovered a fumble on the Key West 19. Two runs by Deonte Stemage (who had scored the first TD) got the Conchs to their own 32 and then disaster unfolded. Brown got sacked for a 10-yard loss. Apenalty then put the Conchs in a fourthand-29 hole on their own 13. Gomez went back to punt, but the ball was snapped over his head and out of the end zone for a safety that gave American a 15-14 lead with seven minutes left. We were clawing to hang on, and that deflated us, Hughes said.

The meet was held at Larry and Penny Thompson Park in Miami.The teams there were amazing, but our guys were not intimidated, said Key West coach Terence White, referring to cross-country powers such as Belen Jesuit, Columbus and Miami Sunset. We beat a lot of teams we couldnt race with before.Guzman, a junior, finished 36th in a personal-best 17 minutes, 45 seconds in the 5K (3.1 miles).

Junior Julian Ramirez was next in 18:25, followed by freshmen Connor Cheney (personal-best 18:38) and junior Tyler Hancock (personal-best 18:39). Brock and Everett ran as strong as expected, but Connor and Tyler made a big move, White said.

Wed move the ball well but then get hit with a big penalty or make a mistake, Holly said. It was a strange Friday. Coral Shores was tagged for a season-high 13 penalties, 11 of which cost the Canes 10 yards or more. This is a team that takes pride in playing hard within the rules so its hard to understand how that happens, Holly said. But when youre facing the conference leader on the road in a big game, youve got to find a way to overcome penalties and the other things. It was a learning experience that should help get us ready to play Marathon, Holly said. I expect this week to be a fun and dynamic game in a game that has a lot of tradition. The Coral Shores homecoming game will be the last confirmed regular-season game in Tavernier. There will be at least two more conference postseason games for all the leagues clubs, with sites and pairings still to be determined.If Coral Shores finishes third in the South as expected, the Canes likely would travel to pay the North Divisions second-ranked team in the Oct. 25 opening round.At 6:30 p.m. today, Hurricane players help coach Coral Shoresgirls powderpuff teams in a series of intramural flag-football games.Canes likely to finish 3rdFrom Hurricanes,1B Conchs dominate GolemanWinning 22 of 24 events, the Key West High swim team easily defeated Barbara Goleman Saturday at the Florida Keys Community College pool.

Divers are to strap on dive knives and descend 30 feet beneath the surface to transform their fleshy gourds into jolly jack-olanterns. Finned and gilled reef fish typically come in close to observe the knifewielding action. Past pumpkin entries have featured traditional triangle eyes with toothless grins, shark-mouthed sneers and an underwater orangeskinned octopus, among others. Buddy teams can join the fun at Amy Slates Amoray Dive Resort, mile marker 104.5, to compete during the 8:30 a.m. dive. Teams must attempt to create pumpkins worthy of praise and prizes from the experienced judges, who double as the crew -of the Amoray Diver dive boat. Contestants submerge with only their creative imaginations and dive knives as their carving tools. The top three pumpkin sculptors are to receive prizes, including a dive trip for two. Entry fee is $85 per certified diver for the two-tank two-location dive including tanks, weights and snorkel equipment. Divers are encouraged to sign up for the contest early since space is limited.

You are, after all, having a party to have a good time, right? Thats why we assembled these easy Halloween party dishes. Not only are they simple to assemble, they also require little planning and help keep the mood light and festive. We started off with the dip. Its nice if not everything on Halloween revolves around sugar. Equally at home with a platter of vegetables or chips and pretzels, this avocado and cream cheese-based dip will appeal to kids and adults. Plus, Halloween is one of the few times of the year where food doesnt need to look pretty. For something bready, we went with frozen puff pastry formed into bones. Puff pastry is a cinch to work with. Youll find it in the grocers freezer section. Each package contains two sheets. Simply thaw according to package directions, then unfold, slice, season and bake. And feel free to play around with the spices we suggest, swapping in Italian seasoning, chili powder or even curry powder for the Old Bay seasoning. For a sweet touch, we went with pots of dirt. Or rather, peanut butter and hot fudge blended with a few other tasty ingredients to resemble dirt.Creamy swamp dip Three ripe avocados, peeled and pitted. Eight ounces cream cheese, room temperature. Two tablespoons balsamic vinegar. Quarter cup chopped black olives. Half cup chopped Peppadew peppers. Quarter cup chopped marinated mushrooms. Salt and ground black pepper. In a food processor, combine the avocados, cream cheese and balsamic vinegar. Process until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl, then mix in the olives, Pappadews and marinated mushrooms. Season with salt and black pepper. If not serving immediately, cover with plastic wrap, pressing it onto the surface of the dip. Start to finish: Ten minutes. Servings: Sixteen.

One tablespoon Old Bay seasoning. 17.3-ounce package frozen puff pastry, thawed. Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or spritz lightly with cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine the Parmesan with the Old Bay seasoning. On a lightly floured surface, unfold 1 sheet of the puff pastry. Very lightly moisten the surface of the pastry with water. Sprinkle half the Parmesan mixture over it. Using a pizza wheel or a sharp knife, cut the dough into half-inch strips. One at a time, grab each strip by its ends and twist once or twice to create a spiral. Arrange the strips on the prepared baking sheet, leaving about half an inch between them. Repeat the process with the second sheet of pastry and remaining Parmesan mixture. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
