And while Florida enjoys the distinction of being the most legally armed state in the country, Monroe County residents nearly top the state in numbers of per-capita concealed-weapons permits. Comparing data provided by the Florida Department of Agriculture, which oversees the licenses, with the latest U.S. Census reveals that 7.6 percent of Florida Keys residents are allowed to legally carry a concealed weapon. That breaks down to 5,641 licenses for 73,873 people. We're second statewide only to Dixie County in the Gainesville area, which boasts a 9.5 percent per-capita rate of concealed licenses to residents. On Wednesday two days before Friday's massacre at a Connecticut school in which 27 people were killed by a gunman Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam said that since 1987, his department had issued 997,066 licenses, and at the current application and processing speed, anticipated sending out No. 1 million "early next week." The statewide average is just more than 5 percent of more than 19 million Floridians. The permit fee is $75. Putnam generally described four out of five license holders as men and one in three between ages 51 and 65. Phillip Condella, owner of the Big Coppitt Gun Club on Palmetto Drive in the Lower Keys, said he sees all types of people come through his door. "You've got all age groups," he said. "It's a wide variety." He said that around one in 10 of his customers are women and that he sees a lot of men in their 20s and 30s. The club has 350 members and is open daily from noon to 7 p.m. In contrast to Florida, Tuesday, the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago ordered Illinois lawmakers to create a legislative mechanism to allow concealed-weapons permitting to abide by the Second Amendment. Illinois is the only state that doesn't allow people to legally carry concealed weapons; the court gave state officials 180 days to draft new laws. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel called the decision "wrongheaded" and running "counter to common sense."Milestone to be reached next week, Keys are second among all coun tiesGUN OWNERSHIPBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comSee Guns,2A Citizens to pay for risk studyFlorida Keys property owners got an early Christmas present Friday when the governing board of Citizens Property Insurance Corp. agreed to fund a $485,000 study on the windstorm risks for Monroe County. Once completed, this could set the stage for possible rate reductions or even moving Keys windstorm insurance policies to another entity. "Citizens stands to drop $11 billion in exposure if an alternative is found for Monroe County," Monroe County Commissioner Heather Carruthers told the Citizens board, which met in Tallahassee. She described the study as a win-win for the beleaguered state insurer of last resort, noting the study will either validate the current higher rates applied to the Keys or establish a lower risk premium that could allow the Keys to leave Citizens altogether. "If this independent [study] suggests a lower probable maximum loss and indicated rate, then we have the opportunity to find alternatives, whether through private insurers, some form of self-insurance or other innovative structures within our county," she added. In August, Fair Insurance Rates for Monroe, known as FIRM (Carruthers is a cofounder) began a series of presentations to municipal officials throughout the Keys in hopes of garnering support to help fund the study independently. Friday's action by the Citizens board appears to fund projected costs for the study, which Carruthers said will include independent analysisBoard approves expenditure for the KeysWINDSTORM INSURANCESAILFISH SKIES Photo by CORINNE HOGANThe photographer captured this what appears to a sailfish moving through the clouds on Nov.30 from Founders Park in Islamorada.The cloud structure is appropriate since the sailfish have been biting decently offshore. Coaches: On the road againIt's 2 in the morning, and the yellow bus, with its precious cargo of sleeping highschool athletes, lurches along the narrow, bridge-laden highway, headed to the Southernmost City after a game completed hours earlier. The driver could be Judd Wise, or Robert James, or John Moeller all personable middle-aged coaches at Key West High. One of them likely will be behind the wheel when any of the school's 14 sports teams boards a bus for a trip to Miami or well beyond. And because there is no extra money to pay them, they do it only for the athletes. "It's about dedication," Moeller said. "All we ask for is a Tshirt and a meal," Wise said, adding that he'll suggest restaurants to coaches or advise that eating pizza on the bus will save time getting home. The enormity of their task doesn't sit lightly on the drivers'shoulders. "I'm responsible for every life on that bus," Wise said. "You're driving at 1 in the morning on a Saturday night on U.S. 1 when the bars are letting out," James said. Wise, 54 and the assistant swimming coach, and James, 56 and an assistant football coach, have been driving teams to games since both were head coaches at KWHS in the midto late 1980s. They were told, "You want to coach, you drive the bus," because it would have been cost-prohibitive (as it would be today) to use regular drivers.

Bull said he has "major concerns" with the law because he feels it fails to adequately address outdoor pigpens and the possibility of pigs having babies. He talked about how pigs can have between eight to 12 piglets twice per year. "There's nothing in there about penning them and what conditions they need to live in and I just don't think that's appropriate," he said. "The other major thing is we don't even talk about piglets in this. It is livestock and I don't know the intent of this ordinance." Bull's comments likely caught fellow council members off guard, since the amendment to the city's existing domestic-pet law passed unanimously on Nov. 27. Tuesday's hearing was for a second and final reading.

Mimi Young City ClerkPublished Keynoter 12/15/12 Thursday, January 3, 2013Thursday, February 7, 2013Thursday, March 7, 2013Thursday, April 4, 2013Thursday, May 2, 2013Thursday, June 6, 2013Thursday, July 11, 2013Thursday, August 1, 2013Thursday, September 5, 2013Thursday, October 3, 2013Thursday, November 7, 2013Thursday, December 5, 2013 Boa r d r eject s offe r i n N o N ame law s uitTwo mostly wild areas of the Florida Keys, separated by more than 80 miles, share similar utility conundrums. People live in both but federal coastal-protection rules and Monroe County land-use policies serve to limit new access to utilities specifically, sewers on North Key Largo and powerline electricity on No Name Key. The federal Coastal Barrier Resources Act, which limits utilities that could encourage development in sensitive areas, affects both North Key Largo and No Name Key. After lengthy discussions on both sites during Wednesday's Monroe County Commission meeting in Marathon, board members concluded without voting that it is not time to start issuing permits allowing hookups on either island. No Name homeowners Robert and Julianne Reynolds, and James and Ruth Newton, have sued to get the permits. But the commission took no vote on a settlement offer from them basically, to drop the case essentially rejecting their attempt to get power from Keys Energy Services, County Attorney Bob Shillinger told the board. "It's pretty clear that a majority of the commission wants to end this," Commission Mayor George Neugent said of the No Name Key lawsuit. "It's how it ends," Commissioner Heather Carruthers said of lingering differences. "We could make any decision and we'll see further litigation," Commissioner David Rice said. More than 20 residents and lawyers spoke to commissioners about No Name Key's situation Wednesday, both pleading for power and seeking to keep the status quo. Commissioners earlier met with Shillinger in private to review the settlement offer from plaintiffs'attorney Barton Smith. In the open meeting, Shillinger said he could not recommend accepting the offer. "This offer was beyond ludicrous," Commissioner Sylvia Murphy said. In June, Lower Keys power utility Keys Energy Services installed 62 poles and transmission wires on No Name Key at the urging and financing of many of the island's residents. But homeowners need permits from Monroe County to plug in. Current county land-development rules enforced by the state prevent issuing those permits on the sparsely settled island, which has long made do with solar panels and generators. A smaller group of No Name Key residents want to protect that unique status. Commissioner Danny Kolhage, who joined the commission last month, said he would have voted to the keep the island off the electric grid but the poles and powerlines, coupled with a lessrestrictive opinion from federal wildlife managers, "changed everything." "I don't see destroying that [$750,000] investment," Kolhage said. "There are poles and powerlines running in front of people's homes that they can't hook up to." "Change can and does happen.... We're acknowledging the fact that power is there," Rice said. "What appears to be a majority of the community, and I believe this to be the case, is requesting power. At this point I see that as a reasonable request." The No Name Key issue now likely will proceed to a scheduled January court hearing on the lawsuit. Commissioners told staff to start working on a process to consider changing land-use rules to allow some utilities at existing homes while protecting undeveloped areas. That could take a year or more. The Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District faces a similar Coastal Barrier Resources situation in its push to lay sewers to 32 developed properties on North Key Largo.

Candice Lee, 37, allegedly shot her former lover, Shakir Muilam, 45, with a .22-caliber rifle after the two argued over her relationship with a new boyfriend, said Deputy Becky Herrin, spokeswoman with the Monroe County Sheriff's Office. Lee and her husband, whom the Sheriff's Office did not identify, are in an open relationship, which allows them to have other sexual partners, Herrin said. Lee and Muilam were in a relationship but broke up recently. However, she and her husband allowed Muilam to live with them when he was diagnosed with cancer. While living with her husband and Muilam, Lee began a new relationship with yet another man. Muilam found Lee and her boyfriend talking outside of their home at 217 St. Croix Place and became angry, according to police. Lee reportedly told Muilam that if he didn't approve of her new relationship, he could move out. Sometime during the argument, Lee reportedly fell and hit her head. She went inside the house and came back outside with the rifle and pointed it at Muilam. Lee told investigators that as she and Muilam argued, he reached behind himself and she shot him in the thigh. Lee said she ran to her next-door neighbor's home to call the police. She then ran back to her home and applied pressure to Muilam's wound. When deputies arrived, Lee pointed to where the gun was leaning up against a bookshelf. Deputies booked Lee into jail, where she is being held on no bond facing a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.Argument was over new boyfriendKEY LARGO LEEReporter Staff By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comHis city has seen more than 400 shooting deaths this year.

Daniel Dennis Condon, 21, of Flagler Avenue faces 76 felony counts of dealing in stolen property, plus two each of burglary and grand theft. Despite all the charges, police on Friday didn't have details on where specifically the break-ins took place or from when to when, though reports indicate the spree occurred over the past three weeks or so. Police said Condon came to their attention when he got in touch with one of the victims and told him he had his cell phone and wallet, and arranged a meeting at a Flagler Avenue convenience store. Police spokeswoman Alyson Crean said it's not clear if Condon wanted to give the items back or sell them back. "This arrest leaves a lot of questions," she said. "An officer followed the victim to the meeting," she said, "and witnessed the exchange. When the officer asked the man ... where he got the wallet, [Condon] said it was among a number of items that he purchased from another man." Crean said detectives are trying to determine if that's what happened or if Condon is responsible for the vehicle burglaries himself. "The fact is," Crean said, "they picked him up on the spot because he was dealing in stolen goods and he knew they were stolen. But whether he stole them or not, that's still pending." Following his arrest, police searched Condon's apartment and found multiple cell phones and miscellaneous electronic cables, 14 credit cards, five knives and a ballistics vest. When arrested, Condon was carrying an expandable baton. The vest and baton were reported stolen on Dec. 10. Scott Reyna told police they were taken from his vehicle when it was parked overnight, possibly unlocked, at Bay Street and Roosevelt Drive. Crean, noting a seasonal influx of tourists and a recent increase in vehicle break-ins, reminded residents to ensure their vehicle is locked to avoid becoming the victim of a crime of opportunity.Details still unclear on Condon caseCRIME FRONT CONDONTree costs more than budgetedThe Marathon City Council isn't letting a higherthan-expected bid stand in the way of planting a second round of native trees in the medians along U.S. 1. Tuesday, the council unanimously approved a $162,734 contract with Tropic Landscaping and Lawn Maintenance Inc. that was $42,700 more than the $120,000 budgeted. Public Works Manager Carlos Solis told the council he made his best estimate when it came to the 2012-13 budget line item because it had to be included and the bid process was yet to begin. City Manager Roger Hernstadt said he believes the difference would likely be made up from other capital infrastructure projects. "We have almost $3.7 million in the capital infrastructure fund and I have to believe some of the other projects on that list will come in under budget or be eliminated," he said. The city spent $36,000 on the original round of trees, planted in April and May 2011 from Aviation Boulevard to 107th Street. According to city documents, Tropic will plant 140 more palm trees and thousands of ground-cover plants. The trees would be planted from 107th Street to Coco Plum Drive, while the ground cover would be planted from Aviation Boulevard through Coco Plum Drive. Plans call for 50 Jamaican capers, 29 pigeon plums, two silver Bismarck palms, 42 sabal palms and 17 sunshine palms. The ground cover will consist of 9,132 perennial peanuts, 5,163 trinette arboricola, 5,038 green island ficus, 907 dwarf fire brush and 503 yellow necklaepod plants. In other business Tuesday: City Utilities Manager Zully Hemeyer said that more than $500,000 of a $750,000 state Community Development Block Grant is still available to help lowincome families finance lateral connections to the city sewer system. Rental properties are eligible for assistance if the tenants qualify and the value of the house is not part of the eligibility requirements. According to Hemeyer, requirements are equal to 80 percent or less of what's considered low income by the state. For a four-person family, income must be less than $69,350 per year. The council finalized the 18 recipients of a combined $90,000 in nonprofit grants distributed by the city each year. The total 2012-13 requests were $173,688. Keys Area Interdenominational Resources is the top recipient at $17,060, while Independence Cay received $16,100. Both provide food and/or shelter to Middle Keys residents in need. For a second and final time, the council approved a development agreement for the Bonefish Bay Motel. It allows for an increase from 20 to 25 transient units.Hernstadt: Difference can be made upMARATHON driving teams when he was at Mary Immaculate School in 1983, doesn't recall much about the training he got, other than, "Remember to take wide turns." "We had a little program on operating buses, but that was mostly for regular drivers," said James, who had gotten a chauffeur's license years earlier so he could drive a truck for a storage firm. He added that in the late 1990s, he had to take a test on air brakes. When the teams arrive home on weeknights, the drivers get only a few hours of sleep before having to get up and get to their classrooms. "We never miss," said Moeller. "We're always at school the next morning. We're really idiots." Moeller, 62, who coaches golf and boys tennis and who used to be the head wrestling coach, has been driving for four years. "Because of cutbacks in transportation, the only way to make my [wrestling] budget was if I started driving a bus," he said. (He took a free course from a "bus trainer.") This fall, Moeller took his golf team to the Biltmore Hotel in Miami on a regular basis. "Three hundred and 20 miles round-trip," he said without hesitation. The drivers do not tolerate bad behavior during their trips, and there's little because of the respect the young passengers have for them they see them every day in the classrooms. "When we win, there's always a little rowdiness," James said, "but it doesn't affect how you drive. Driving does not really tire me out. It allows me to collect my thoughts." Wise never hesitates to yell at players who get out of hand. "I tell them, I'm under enough stress chill and relax,'" he said. Save for perhaps a scrape in a parking lot, the drivers have never had an accident or a traffic citation. But there have been breakdowns. "One time the battery went dead and I had to find a jump," Moeller said. "It cost $75 to jump a bus, and that came out of my own pocket." James said his bus once blew a gasket in St. Lucie County. "I had an emergency number and got a bus from that school district," he said. "And I was taking the band to Melbourne once and we stalled. But we got another bus and went on. There's good cooperation between the districts." Other coaches at the high school shudder to think what would happen without the driving trio. "There would be canceled trips and we would have to raise a lot more money to get kids to games," said girls soccer coach Scott Paul. "A trip to Fort Lauderdale would cost $1,000 with a regular driver. We'd also be forced to use vans, which means multiple drivers and which multiplies the chances of accidents." Wise recently drove Paul's team on a two-day trip to Naples and Fort Myers. "He's someone to bounce ideas off of," Paul said. "He's a calming effect, and you're getting a second coach." Not along ago, Wise and James tried to figure how many miles they had amassed between them.

"We have a keen interest in making sure the freshwater-saltwater interface does not move much further to the east," FKAAEngineering Director Tom Walker said Friday. Most of the fresh water pumped to the Florida Keys is taken from the Biscayne Aquifer at the FKAAwell field in Florida City, about six miles from Florida Power and Light's Turkey Point plant. The FPLproposal says most of the water used to cool two new reactors about 90,000 gallons daily would come from MiamiDade's treated wastewater. But as a backup source for cooling water, FPLwants to sink a 40-foot well beneath the bottom of Biscayne Bay. "There are times when that [wastewater] may not be available to them," Walker said. The "radial well" would be a large shaft with a network of horizontal wells extending beneath the bay bottom. "Like spokes on a wheel," Walker said. "The real issue for us is whether this could affect saltwater intrusion into the Biscayne Aquifer rather than causing a drawdown of the aquifer itself," said FKAA Executive Director Kirk Zuelch. Modifications to a MiamiDade permit needed to move forward on the Turkey Point expansion were scheduled to be heard Thursday in Miami, but the Miami-Dade County Commission could not assemble enough members to conduct the session. The issue likely will be moved to a Jan. 10 hearing. FPLalso seeks to increase the number of days it would be allowed to draw from the radial well, said Dawn Shirreffs, Everglades restoration specialist for the National Parks Conservation Association. "They asking for the permit to allow them to use the radial well up to 50 percent of the time," Shirreffs said. "That's a significant increase and the possible ramifications are completely unknown." "We are concerned the draw could have salinity impacts on the Biscayne Aquifer and Biscayne National Park," she said. The power utility seeks to build a wastewater treatment plant that would require about 40 acres of coastal wetland to be destroyed, she noted. The Turkey Point nuclear plant lies within eyesight from the top of the Card Sound Bridge. The new reactors, if they receive approval, would not become active for another decade at the earliest. Estimated costs of the project range from $13 billion to $20 billion.Power giant needs to cool new reactorsENERGY initially said he would be open to Bull's changes in order to pass the law. But fellow council members said they feel the law clearly does not encourage or allow the breeding of pigs in the city, and a motion was made to approve the law. Planning Director George Garrett told the council there is law in place limiting residents to no more than four domestic animals per home. "I would like to settle this tonight and never have to deal with this again. There are several other municipalities in the state dealing with this very issue; it's not only us," Vice Mayor Richard Keating said. Cinque called for a vote on the law, which passed 41, without allowing Bull to suggest the amendments about which he spoke. During council comments at the close of the meeting, Bull said he was "taken aback" by the process. Cinque whose Stuffed Pig Restaurant hosts annual pig races told Bull he didn't mean to call the vote so quickly. The need for an amendment arose when a recent complaint was made to the city's Code Compliance Department about a resident keeping a pair of potbellied pigs for pets. Code Director Stacy Charlton investigated and found several South Florida governments changing laws regarding pigs as domestic animals. She said she advised the City Council to consider one for Marathon. That led Garrett to draft the amendment to the existing law allowing up to two pigs per household in the city. The ordinance provides for annual licensure of domestic pigs ($55 annually). Their vaccinations must be verified every year. The law also requires pig owners to maintain certain maintenance standards and establishes minimum setbacks for outdoor pigpens.Bull can't sway pig voteFrom Pigs,1A By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org

What will come, he said, is an actual vision, though he's given no specifics. Porter has made developing such a plan a priority since he was hired in August. After much buildup to the School Board, he presented the half-page document during a workshop at Marathon High School. He stressed the need for multiple "community engagement sessions" held not only at schools but also at "non-traditional locations" like churches. "Too often in schools, we have the tendency to take the attitude of you come to us," Porter said. "We tend to hold them in locations that are advantageous to us," thereby excluding "some elements of our community that aren't quite as comfortable." A40-member "strategic planning team" will take on the brunt of the work. Support will come from smaller "action planning teams." Of the strategic planning team, "It does need to be a selected group, not simply a volunteer aspect, to ensure we're getting representation from a wide variety." In the constantly changing statewide educational landscape, with shifting legislative and gubernatorial agendas, Porter noted that a five-year implementation and measurement phase is needed. "Clearly everything is not going to be accomplished in the first year." Board members Robin Smith-Martin and Ed Davidson lauded Porter's efforts. "Remember," Davidson said, "We can't afford to just end up preaching to our own choir. Eighty percent of the folks that pay these bills ... don't have kids in the classroom. We need to make sure they're included. That's how we get the community buyin we're going to need." Per Porter's timeline, six community engagement sessions will be held between January and March, concurrently with solicitation and selection of the strategic and action planning teams. In April, the working groups will develop plans and goals for the first 12 months to 18 months of the five-year period. By June, the board is slated to review and approve the plan. Under Porter's predecessor Jesus Jara, board members, with the exception of newly elected Davidson, came up with a list of five top long-term priorities. Those were: Maintain a 5 percent fund balance. Make Monroe County schools in the top 5 percent statewide based on achievement standards. Make Keysthe top academically rated district in the state; it's now tied for eight with Brevard County. Ensure employees are dedicated to the district's mission of "constant improvement." Continue to pay teachers the highest average salary in the state; the local average is $56,000 compared to the state average of $45,000. Implement an "administrative performance management system aligned to strategic priorities."Porter hasn't offered any specificsMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS 12-14 lb.

FIRM has argued that windstorm insurance rates in Monroe County are too high based on actual damages paid compared to premiums collected. The group notes that most claims in the Keys come from storm surge and flooding, which are not part of windstorm policies but come under the National Flood Insurance Program. "Between 2003 and 2011 through two of the worst storm seasons in history Monroe County generated a gross profit [premiums less claims] for Citizens of $504 million," FIRM officials said in May. On Friday, Carruthers told the Citizens board its investment in the study is good public policy and cheap by any measure: "Monroe County residents pay over $79 million a year in Citizens premiums. This proposal equals less than 1 percent of that premium." She said the average policy holder pays $3,000 every year to Citizens, while the study would cost the equivalent of $20 per policy. Citizens insures 25,000 windstorm policies in the Keys. It wasn't clear Friday when the study will begin or how long it will take to crunch the data and bring back findings to Citizens for further action. But Citizens President Barry Gilway told his board that the study "should be under the direction of FIRM, managed by FIRM ... and [that] the results are really 100 percent owned by FIRM."Citizens financing studyFrom Insurance,1ABoard to revamp traffic calculationsDriving through the Florida Keys is slowing down but not enough to trigger a countywide building freeze, says a consultant to Monroe County. "All things being equal, it could take another 20 years" for traffic on U.S. 1 to drop below the level of service that would force a moratorium, Rajendran Shanmugam of URS Corp. said during a Wednesday presentation to the County Commission. Arecent study did show overall speed on U.S. 1 "has gone down slightly" about one-tenth of 1 mph to an average of 47 mph this year, Shanmugam said. "It's not that something failed this year," he said. "It's been happening for a long time.... Don't get all wound up about these numbers." To prevent triggering a localized building halt in certain areas where traffic speed has dropped notably, county Planning Director Christine Hurley urged the county to amend the land-use plan's section on road speeds. She proposed dropping the current focus on speeds in 24 road "segments" to an overall speed average on the drive between Key West and the Miami-Dade County line. Speeds are recorded during a study period from late February through March. "Any hotelier will tell you that's when they are 100 percent full," Commis-sioner Heather Carruthers said. "I don't want people to think their quality of life is deteriorating and we're all going to be stuck in traffic. That is not the case." County planners also were directed to work with the state Department of Transportation to find other ways to prevent slowdowns. Those could include technology to reduce wait times at stoplights, limits on new signals, and adding turn lanes. Developers could be asked to make road improvements beyond paying traffic-impact fees. Adding more lanes, the usual method of improving traffic flow, is exceedingly difficult through the narrow Keys, commissioners noted. In other items at the Wednesday meeting: The Pigeon Key Foundation was allowed to drop its replacement insurance on the county-owned island's eight historic buildings, saving the nonprofit group about $20,000 a year. Commissioners said if the Flagler-era buildings are destroyed, it would be impossible to replace their historic value. Commissioners ap-proved a $120,000 annual contract with Tallahassee consultants to lobby on behalf of Monroe County and local municipalities on BPDeep-water Horizon settlements, and for state sewer funding. At the urging of Commissioner Danny Kolhage, the county's share will be limited to $25,000 annually with the balance to come from cities. Technology Director Robert Ward reported on a new system to order and track county-owned smartphones and computer tablets. The new system was created in the wake of a scandal in which former department head Lisa Druckemiller bought iPhones and iPads from the county budget, then improperly sold them. Charges of theft and scheme to defraud remain pending against her.Goal:Try to maintain speed levelsCOUNTY COMMISSIONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com

An event that impacted me was the 2010 memorial service for homeless people who had died in the Upper Keys. As each person's name was called and a candle lit to recognize their life, I realized this might be the only memorial service this person would have. Alight was ignited in my heart that day. Prior to attending the service, I was somewhat fearful of homeless people. I always looked the other way when I saw them in the Islamorada library, outside Winn-Dixie or walking down the highway. Their humanness was invisible to me. Thanks to this service, I had a change of heart an opening of my heart that allowed me to feel compassion and loving kindness for the homeless. Dec. is National Homeless Persons Memorial Day as declared by the National Coalition for the Homeless, National Consumer Advisory Board, and the National Health Care for the Homeless Council, and special services will be held across the country. The Upper Keys memorial service will be held from noon until 1 p.m. at Settlers Park, mile marker 91.8 oceanside, next door to the Sunshine Market. Settlers Park is one of several community peace parks jointly sponsored by Keys to Peace and the Student Peace Alliance of Coral Shores High School. This year's service will especially honor veterans who died in our midst while homeless. Plans also call for a flute concert and the ringing of a peace bell to honor each person's life. The public is invited to attend and bring canned food for the local food pantries. Denise Downing IslamoradaNo fake wedding flowersWeddings on Sombrero Beach in Marathon, especially at sunset, are lovely. The detritus left behind? Less so. Some of the fake flowers are still strewn about the beach. I happened to have walked past the wedding this summer. For a while, I thought maybe the flowers were of biodegradable materials but months later, they're still visible and dangerous to sea turtles, birds, etc. And unsightly for beachgoers. The city should either allow only real flowers or enforce post-wedding cleanups. Loretta Alkalay MarathonParade's a traditionI wish to thank everyone who participated in the Key Colony Beach Boat Parade on Dec. 9. It has been my pleasure to chair this parade for the last 17 or so years. In 1994, I was asked to take on the task of running the parade. I never knew it would almost become a lifetime job. Those who have participated over the years have become like a big family. Every year we welcome new people who discover the fun and joy of entertaining those who line up by the hundreds on the causeway to watch and cheer. The night of the parade is the perfect kickoff for the holiday season and the city responds with parties and gatherings in many places along the canals. All in all it is and has been for the last, as best as I can discover, 35 years a night to remember. I also wish to thank the Key Colony Beach Community Association, which, for all the years I have been involved, sponsors and pays for the advertising and the awards party. It is just one of the ways the group supports the city. They also run the annual Key Colony Beach Day and various other affairs. They are always there supporting the city and contributing to those things that make living here in the Keys a pleasure. Thanks to the sponsors who contribute the Trophies given every year (Exit Realty, Key Colony Beach Realty and Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real Estate). Last but not least, the Key Colony Inn whose owner and staff go above and beyond to make the awards party such a great time. I can't forget George "Chick" Lees, my old friend and co-chair whose help and attention to detail always gets the names of the boats and their captains. Without him, I would have no clue who belonged where and why. Hope to see you all next year. Tucker De Graw Key Colony BeachIn a sound defeat for quiet, Supreme Court knocks down law regulating autos'music volumeStopped at a red light, the amplified sound emanating from the car next to you actually seems to rock the vehicle. For some motorists, that intrusive noise rises to the level of a public nuisance. But Florida's Supreme Court ruled this week that motorists can play their car stereos as loud as they want. They struck down parts of a state statute that barred drivers from blasting car radios at a volume "plainly audible" to someone 25 feet away. Acourt majority called that overreach and struck down parts of the law, saying it "infringed on the freedom of expression." ATampa lawyer who got a $73 ticket for violating the noise law brought the case. He was listening to Justin Timberlake on his way to work one morning when stopped and given the citation. He took the case to court, challenging the law's constitutionality, and it wound up going from circuit court to the 2nd District Court of Appeal, which also found the law overly broad. Wednesday's decision upholds the 2nd District opinion, although the Supreme Court justices didn't cite the constitutionality argument. Instead, they focused on First Amendment rights that guarantee free speech. Justice Jorge Labarga, writing for the majority, said he was skeptical of the state's argument that striking down the law would put in peril an exemption for businesses and political speech. That's a reference to the sound trucks deployed during political campaigns and often at sales events where loud music and screaming deejays are part of "protected" free speech, as well. He wrote that the state's argument "fails to explain how a commercial or political vehicle amplifying commercial or political messages audible a mile away is less dangerous or more tolerable than a noncommercial vehicle amplifying a religious message audible just over 25 feet away from the vehicle." So our advice: If you find loud music annoying, you might ask Santa for the cash needed to get your car A/C fixed. That way, you can travel with windows closed and shutting out most of the ambient noise that surrounds you. Either that, or you can try playing classical music real loud on your own car stereo and scare away teenage drivers in droves. Don't laugh that technique has been successfully used by shopping malls on the mainland to discourage large gatherings of teens late at night. Might we recommend anything by Beethoven, Wagner and Tchaikovsky's classic "1812 Overture" (you know, the one with the cannons for percussive emphasis). Faux flowers remain on the beach long after a wedding took place there. www.keysnet.com Bondi tightens synthetic-drug rulesFlorida's attorney general made it harder this week for manufacturers of synthetic drugs to legally sell them in the state. The products are legally marketed, yet more dangerous, police say, than the types of illicit drugs they are meant to mimic. Nightmarish consequences reported about people using the drugs include psychotic episodes, hallucinations, seizures, paranoia and tremors. Attorney General Pam Bondi said Tuesday she's issued an emergency order banning 22 substances found in the products, which are sold in tobacco shops, convenience stores and online. It is up to the Legislature this coming session, which starts in March, to make the substances permanently illegal. Synthetic drugs, particularly a stimulant commonly known as bath salts, gained national attention last spring following the so-called Miami cannibal, who attacked a homeless man in downtown Miami, biting off most of his victim's face before being shot to death by a police officer. Investigators originally suspected the attacker, Rudy Eugene, was high on bath salts, but toxicology reports confirmed only marijuana in his system. Nevertheless, police and medical professionals are becoming increasingly alarmed by the products, whose manufacturers always seem to be one step ahead of the law by manipulating ingredients to keep them legal. "By changing the molecular structure of the active ingredient in marijuana and amphetamines, criminals synthesize drugs that are more dangerous, yet technically not illegal, and thus these criminals evade the law, arrest and prosecution," said John Armstrong, Florida's surgeon general. In 2010, 11 percent of Florida high-schoolers reported using synthetic marijuana, "making it the second most common illicit drug used in high school," Armstrong said. Gerald Bailey, commissioner of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, said there are generally three types of synthetic drugs sold legally in Florida synthetic pot, known as spice; synthetic cocaine or amphetamines, called bath salts; and plant food. All are hallucinogens "slightly manipulated by rogue chemists to get around state law." Other than being more dangerous to smoke or ingest than most illegal drugs, Bailey said there is another key difference: "These are readily available on the open market." Bondi and the state Legislature had already banned 98 substances used as synthetic drug ingredients since 2011. But the products continue to show up on store shelves, she said, and young people are their largest consumer group. "The sad thing is our children are buying it," Bondi said. According to a December report by the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, 75 percent of the more than 4,000 people taken to emergency rooms because of synthetic marijuana in 2010 were between the ages of 12 and 29. "Alarmingly, many were from the ages of 12 and 17," Bondi said. And with brand names like Scooby Snax and Cotton Candy, Bondi says children and young adults are the manufacturers'obvious marketing target. "You think this is directed at an adult," Bondi said, holding up a package of Cotton Candy. "This is directed at a young child." Law enforcement and medical professionals in the Keys say the drugs have made there way here, but not nearly to the degree seen in other parts of the state. Sheila Konczewski, a spokeswoman for Mariners Hospital, said "a few" people have recently been taken to the hospital's emergency room because of synthetic drugs, but no one so far for bath salts. Monroe County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Deputy Becky Herrin said deputies have come across synthetic drugs in the Keys, "but I wouldn't call it a big issue." "Most convenience stores are pretty good at complying with the law once they are informed of their responsibilities," Herrin said. The drugs'reputed health menace is evidenced, Armstrong said, by the number of calls being made to poison control centers around the state. Since 2010, the number of reported calls received by poison centers because of bad reactions to bath salts increased 20 times to more than 6,000. "It's hard to imagine hard drugs to be more dangerous, yet that is what so-called synthetic drugs are even more dangerous drugs," Armstrong said.

"The Postal Service expects to deliver 17.9 billion cards, letters and packages between Thanksgiving holiday and New Year's Eve and process 658 million mail pieces," the agency said in a prepared statement. By the numbers: 658 million: The number of pieces of mail processed on Dec. 17. 528 million: The average number of pieces of mail processed daily. 560 million: The number of pieces of mail processed daily during the holidays. 29.5 million: In pounds, the amount of mail the Postal Service will process for overseas military installations. 170,000: The number of vehicles used to transport holiday mail. 2.5 billion: The number of holiday stamps the Postal Service has available this year. 242 million: Number of customers who visit a post office during the holidays. 34 percent: Percentage increase of air cargo delivered by the Postal Service during the holidays. The Postal Service sent out the following reminders: Print addresses clearly and in all caps, and be sure to include all address elements apartment numbers, suite numbers, directional information for streets. For example: 123 S. Main St. or 12456 Elm St. N. Include both "to" and "from" information on packages and only on one side. Mark packages "fragile" in large print on the outside of the box when shipping breakable materials. Never guess a ZIP code. Visit the Postal Service online to find all ZIPcodes. Select a box that is strong enough to protect the contents. Leave space for cushioning inside. Do not reuse mailing boxes; they weaken in the shipping process. Cushion contents with shredded or rolled newspaper, bubble wrap or foam peanuts. Pack contents tightly to avoid shifting during transit. Always use tape that is designed for shipping, such as pressure-sensitive tape, nylon-reinforced craft paper tape or glass-reinforced pressure-sensitive tape. Do not use wrapping paper, string, masking tape or cellophane tape. Place an extra label or notice with the delivery and return address inside the package. This ensures the safe return of an item that could not be delivered should the outside label become damaged or fall off. Remove batteries from toys. Wrap and place them next to the toys in the mailing box. Customers should include the new batteries in the manufacturer's packaging. Stuff glass and fragile, hollow items, like vases, with newspaper or packing material to avoid damage. When mailing framed photographs, take the glass out of the frame and wrap it separately.Gifts, letters, cards make for more volumePOSTAL SERVICEDENTISTS CONVENE Dentist Mike Scherer (right),a former associate of Dr.Charles Troxel (left) of Big Pine Key and a recent graduate of the advanced degree program in prosthodontics at Ohio State University,returned to the Keys last weekend to give a seminar to more than 20 Keys dentists at Hawks Cay Resort.It was put on by the countywide Dental Study Club, administered by periodontist Paul Berger (center) of Key Largo.

The world's most popular online mapping system returned late Wednesday with the release of the Google Maps iPhone app. The release comes nearly three months after Apple Inc. replaced Google Maps as the device's built-in navigation system and inserted its own map software into the latest version of its mobile operating system. Apple's maps application proved to be far inferior to Google's, turning what was supposed to be a setback for Google into a vindication. The product's shoddiness prompted Apple CEO Tim Cook to issue a rare public apology and recommend that iPhone owners consider using Google maps through a mobile Web browser or seek other alternatives until his company could fix the problems. Cook also replaced Scott Forstall, the executive in charge of Apple's mobile operating system, after the company's maps app became the subject of widespread ridicule. Among other things, Apple's maps misplaced landmarks, overlooked towns and sometimes got people horribly lost. In one example brought to light this week, Australian police derided Apple's maps as "life-threatening" because the system steered people looking for the city of Mildura into a sweltering, remote desert 44 miles from their desired destination. Google Inc., in contrast, is hailing its new iPhone app as a major improvement from the one evicted by Apple. "We started from scratch," said Daniel Graf, mobile director of Google Maps. Google engineers started working on the new app before Apple's Sept. 19 ouster, Graf said, though he declined to be more specific. The additional tools in the free iPhone app include turn-by-turn directions. Google's previous refusal to include that popular feature on the iPhone app while making it available for smart phones running on its own Android software is believed to be one of the reasons Apple decided to develop its own technology. The increasing friction between Google and Apple as they jostle for leadership in the smart phone market also played a role in the mapping switch. Google's new iPhone mapping app also offers street-level photography of local neighborhoods for the first time on Apple's mobile operating system, as well as three-dimensional views, public transit directions and listings for more than 80 million businesses around the world. The app still lacks some of the mapping features available on Android-powered phones, such as directions inside malls and other buildings. There still isn't a Google mapping app for Apple's top-selling tablet computer, the iPad, but the company plans to make one eventually. Google, which is based in Mountain View, Calif., declined to say when it hopes to release an iPad mapping app. For now, iPad owners can use the maps in an iPhone mode. That won't be the best experience, but it still may be better than Apple's offering on the iPad.First edition of the app was flawedMICHAEL LIEDTKEAssociated PressTECHNOLOGY Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESSThe new Google Maps application is demonstrated in New York on Thursday.

One of the state's premier saltwater-fishing species, snook cannot be taken anywhere in Florida waters during a closed season that runs from Dec. 14 to Feb. 1. However, catch-and-release fishing is allowed during the winter closure. State surveys indicate that almost all anglers who catch a snook release it alive throughout the year, although one legal-size fish can be kept in open season by fishers who have a saltwater fishing license with a snook permit. However, snook will remain off limits to harvest in the Florida Keys and Gulf of Mexico until September 2013 at the earliest, under emergency orders imposed after a January 2010 cold snap that killed untold numbers of snook. Ahard-fighting fish that can weigh more than 30 pounds, snook are highly sensitive to weather extremes. They become sluggish in cold water, which renders them more vulnerable to other predator fish and humans. "Astrong, fast-moving cold front may claim many [snook] lives due to a rapid drop in water temperature, says a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission report. Aseparate summer closure protects the snook population during breeding season. After the January 2010 cold, state fishery managers closed all snook harvest until the summer 2011 season. Then, the Atlantic waters north of the Monroe County line were opened for snook harvest while the Keys and Gulf remained closed. "If we have a bad winter this year, we will benefit from this caution," FWC board member Kenneth Wright said during the extension vote in June. "If we don't have a bad winter, we will let all these breeding fish come through the slot," Wright said. "We'll really have done something good and we'll have protected some of these fish." Snook were the first saltwater fish ever regulated by Florida law.Statewide closure goes until Feb.1RECREATIONAL FISHINGCitizens shelves loan programCitizens Property Insurance Corp. will shelve a controversial $350 million loan program while it gathers data and looks at more options to reduce its number of policies. Citizens Chief Financial Officer Sharon Binnun told a Citizens'panel Thursday that recent success in other policy depopulation efforts and uncertainty over the longterm success of those efforts make it wise to take a longer look at the proposal to provide low-interest loans to companies willing to take riskier policies off the company's books. Ahandful of companies have already agreed to take out nearly 300,000 less risky policies from the state-backed insurer without the financial incentives. Company officials say, however, that the surplus loan program should be revisited next summer, rather than scrapped entirely. "It would be prudent for us as an organization to ... come next summer take all the things we learned and see where we stand," Binnun said. Earlier this year, officials drew criticism after they proposed an effort to use $350 million in surplus funds to provide 20-year loans to companies that would take Citizens policies and keep them for at least 10 years. Incoming House Speaker Will Weatherford was among a group of lawmakers that urged caution and further review. Contrary to initial estimates, Citizens President Barry Gilway said Thursday the loan program as now structured is unlikely to entice many private carriers to take advantage of the loans. Outside investment advisors are reviewing the loan program and are expected to make recommendations early next year. Gilway, who took over in June and presented the loan program shortly after his arrival, said discussions with potential companies indicate that changes need to be made. "I seriously doubt even if the surplus note program would proceed that we would have any real takers that meet the financial requirements that we believe would be necessary," Gilway said. Sean Shaw, a former Florida insurance consumer advocate who now works with a Tampa law firm that represents policyholders in lawsuits, applauded the decision, saying the proposal had not been fully vetted by the Legislature. "The surplus lines program seems to be off the table, and that's great news," Shaw said in a statement. The full Citizens Board of Governors was expected to vote on the proposal Friday.Firms were to get deal for policiesBy MICHAEL PELTIERNews Service of FloridaINSURANCEBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org

Canes'comeback falls a bit shortSuddenly, startlingly, Coral Shores High took the lead but just as suddenly, Key West got it back and, with its guards slashing repeatedly for layups or foul-shot opportunities, finally pulled away for a 7056 victory in a boys District 16-4Abasketball game Thursday night at the Bobby Menendez Gym. The Conchs seemed to have the game in hand after a three-point shot by Donald Roberts put them up, 33-23, to begin the third quarter. That's when Terrell Taylor and Alberto Anderson took over for the Hurricanes.Driving to the basket or pounding the offensive boards, they ignited a 16-8 run that cut the lead to 41-39.Will Ismer whose bright yellow shoes stood out almost as much as his 6foot-8 height then scored inside to tie it at 41-41. Another drive by Anderson gave the Hurricanes a 43-42 lead at the end of period. It was their first lead since the game's outset. Coral Shores was ahead, 47-45, early in the fourth when the Conchs'Lanrea Scott missed two foul shots. But the second miss was rebounded by Louis Acosta, who scored to tie the game, 47-47. After that, the Hurricanes Ismer fouled out with five minutes to go never led again. The Conchs, with their harassing defense and with Scott and Daniel Thompson displaying an unstoppable quickness, closed the game with a 23-9 surge as the Hurricanes added to a turnover total that would reach 37."We penetrate and we play defense," said Thompson, who led all scorers with 25 points. Except for Roberts' three-pointer, every Key West basket was made inside.The game marked the return to Key West of Coral Shores coach Bruce Teachey, who helped coach the Conchs two seasons ago. "Their team speed started to pay off," he said. "I'm happy the way we [came back], but we've got to finish games." "I wasn't surprised they came back they're a good team," said Key West coach Anton Lopez. "I was surprised we came out flat in the second half." Scott scored 16 points for the Conchs. Elliott Valdez who put on moves not normally associated with a player built more for football had 12 points and Acosta added 10. Anderson (16), Terrell (14) and Ismer (10) led the Hurricanes, who fell to 3-4 overall and 1-1 in district. They will play at Marathon at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. The Conchs (3-1, 2-0) will play host to St. Brendan at 7:30 tonight.Key West beats rival Coral ShoresBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorPREP BOYS BASKETBALLPhoto by BERT BUDDEKey West's Lanrea Scott and Coral Shores'Terrell Taylor battle for a rebound during the Conchs'70-56 victory Thursday night.

The win moved the resurgent Lady Canes who have dominated Key West the past several years to the winning side of the record at 5-4, after an earlier victory over St. Brendan. "We don't give out game balls but if we did, this one would go to our defense," Coral Shores coach Arthur Paterson said. "They all played really well."

Key West is a rivalry so its always a tough game, Dunn said. And its always good to win. That 1-0 score stood until the final minutes, when Conch coach Scott Paul pushed his defense to the front in a bid to get a score that would force overtime.At that point, the difference between losing 1-0 and 2-0 doesnt matter, Paul said. Coral Shores got a breakaway against the empty Conch backfield. Key West freshman goalie Gabby Pozzi blocked one Cane kick, but Coral Shores sophomore Rachel Walters fielded the rebound and nailed a kick into the right corner of the net.Thats Rachels first varsity goal, Paterson said, and was a good one. Paul praised his Conch squad for holding their own with only 10 players on the field for most of the contest after a seldom-seen bluecard penalty was called on Key West. The violation for a defensive hand penalty in the box forces the player to sit out for the remainder of the game with no substitution allowed. I was really proud of the way we played against a great Coral Shores team, Paul said. One of our goals was to shut down Iris Dunn, and we did a pretty good job of that despite playing with 10 for about 70 minutes. Pozzi, making her first varsity start in the Key West net, delivered several big saves including blocks on two point-blank shots in the second half. Key West dipped to 7-7 with the loss.On Wednesday, Dunn scored four goals as the Canes knocked off St. Brendan, 6-3. Heather Doyle scored twice. Coral Shores finishes its December schedule in a 6 p.m. Tuesday home game against Marathon High School.This was a rough week for the lady basketball Dolphins of Marathon High School. Thursday night at Westwood Christian, Marathon fell 49-39 after leading in the fourth quarter, 29-28. But Westwood outscored Marathon in the fourth, 21-10, to get the victory. Johnnisha Qualls led Marathon with 11 points, Gardine Raymond had 10 and Amanda Davis nine (all three-pointers).Wednesday at home against rival Key West, Conch point guard Tanisha McNulty scored 27 points to help lead her squad to a 42-33 victory.She played really well for us and Im really proud of her. She wasnt even going to start because she was sick, but she said, Coach let me start and Ill be alright.I let her start and this is the best game that shes had, coach Tony McDowell said. McNulty had seven points in the first quarter, including a three-pointer, to help the Conchs to a 12-1 first quarter lead. But Marathon closed the gap to 14-7 heading into the second. Point guard Qualls and post player Yailin Nieda each scored six points to close the Key West lead to 22-19 at halftime. In the third quarter, McNulty scored all 10 Key West points outpaced the Dolphins by six on her own. Key West led 32-23 heading into the fourth. McNulty added another five points in the final quarter, as Key West held onto its nine-point lead. The Dolphins missed a chance to close the gap with nearly 5:00 remaining to 3733, but Qualls missed a breakaway lay-up and two free throws after a Key West technical foul. Before long the lead was 12 points and Marathon was unable to close the gap. Qualls led the Dolphins with 13 points, Raymond had 10 and Nieda had eight. Jamica Mack had nine points and Ryann Appleby five for Key West. The Conchs (2-3) were scheduled to play Gulliver Prep at 6 p.m. Friday, but results were not available at press time.

Marathon ended with 14 shots on goal to Dade Christians two. We could just not find the back of the net, coach Jim Murphy said. We possessed the ball for around 80 percent or more of the game. Other than a mental mistake three minutes into the game, we played a great. We are creating some great opportunities and will soon be capitalizing on our efforts. Against Keys Gate Wednesday, Murphy said he tailored a game plan for the Knights and managed to contain their speedy front line for most of the night en route to the tie. In this game, I think we definitely played more defensive, but we also went to the ball and didnt make as many mental mistakes, he said. In the previous game they also had a penalty kick and scored on a free kick and two corner kicks. All four of those could have maybe been prevented. With the game scoreless, Marathon had a free kick just inside the Keys Gate half of the field, and Ricky Ceja put a ball right on the foot of Esquirol. Esquirol beat one defender and scored to put the Dolphins up 1-0 in the 37th minute. Crespo, who had been having a great game, then made a bad decision going for a ball inside the 18-yard box that led to a Keys Gate penalty kick goal to tie the game. Raymond went for the ball and instead of the ball, got the player and fouled him, Murphy said. The Dolphins took the lead back at the 60:00 mark off a throw-in by Riley Durkin. He put the ball right on a wide open Anthony Garcia, who headed the ball into the net.Keys Gate tied the game in the last 10 minutes when standout junior Yerandy Suarez beat a few Marathon defenders in the box and beat Crespo to the far left post.Marathon is scheduled to host Westwood Christian on Monday at 3 p.m.Despite shots, goals are fewFrom Marathon,1B field were used to playing on, she said. Senior Taylor Konrath scored four goals on the same night she learned of her acceptance to Duke University. It was Taylors night, Durkin joked. Actually, it was the teams night. They were ready for a little redemption because [the loss to Ransom] left a little bitter taste in our mouth. Regan Durkin opened the scoring at the 5:26 mark on a well-placed free kick, and Konrath scored the next three to give herself a hat trick before halftime. Jasmine De La Cruz scored her first goal of the season in her third game back from a knee injury this season. It was the first time we saw the Jasmine, coming off the injury, that we all know and love, coach Durkin said.Konrath scored her fourth goal early in the second half, and Savannah Schuhmacher and Gaby Ceja added the final two goals.On Tuesday, a pair of mishaps by goalie Samantha Bonilla led to Ransoms two goals in a 2-1 win. She bobbled one ball that ended up in the net and fouled a player leading to a penalty kick goal in the 37th minute. Thats soccer; you can do everything right and still lose a game pretty easily, coach Durkin said. Marathons goal came when Brandi Spalten scored off a pass from Konrath. The team was juiced and we just werent able to get that second goal to tie it up, the coach said.

The loss snapped a threegame win streak for the Conchs, who fell to 4-5-1 overall and 2-3 in district. Our freshmen played great and had a high work rate, but the physical level was just different, Eggers said. They had 15 seniors, and our upper classmen mentally werent there. The Conchs missed two tap-ins in the first 10 minutes, then allowed two goals while trying to clear the ball from in front of the net. We scored them, Eggers said.

Let us help you! We gift wrap! Holiday time is sparkly timeWhat to wear for the holidays? Sequins, sparkle and everything shiny go hand in hand with the holiday season. Not only will you find them wrapped around your Christmas tree but it's also the perfect opportunity to add it to your wardrobe. In the Florida Keys, we don't have a lot of opportunities to get decked out since Keys casual, in most cases, really is the most dressed up we get. But the holidays are a perfect excuse to dress up a bit more. And there are plenty of opportunities to wear all that sparkles parties, family celebrations and more. The easiest way to incorporate a little glam into your holiday outfits is through accessories. I can't get enough of vintage bags found at the Pink Junktique at 98275 Overseas Highway in Key Largo. Starting at just $35, they are a very affordable option for getting into the holiday spirit. Look for sequins, metallic shades and beaded bags, as these will easily glam up your outfit without a lot of effort. For a holiday party, I'd pair a glitzy bag with a basic black dress and heels for a wow look. Too dressy for your festivities? Try wearing a glitzy bag dressed down with jeans, black heels and a black fitted tee. This will still help you achieve a glam look without being overdressed although I would argue that it is always better to be overdressed then underdressed. For a really fun look, try a sequin dress from Wild Lily at 81933 Overseas Highway in Islamorada. Pair this with a basic black heel and black opaque tights for an easy, glamorous look perfect at a New Year's Eve party. Black is always dressier, so if you'd prefer a dresseddown version of this, try pairing it with a fun color like bright pink. Wrap a bright pink scarf around your neck and pair it with a similar hued shoe and you're set. This look has a lot going on, so pair down your bag and accessories by staying in the same color tones and go for simple elegant pieces like a basic gold bracelet and earrings. Statement necklaces and flirty dresses are another easy holiday party staple. I love shopping at DeJaVu, 608 Duval St. in Key West, for affordable, girly frocks and lots of statement necklaces. Wear bright-hued necklaces or layer multiple necklaces in bright shades, various metals or pearls to dress up your holiday look. DeJaVu has a huge selection of fun costume jewelry and apparel, many of which are designed by store owner Stephanie Carter under the label Judith March. Starting at just $20, the Judith March label is both adorable and affordable. Happy dressing this holiday season and remember, the more bling, the better.

The pinnings represent the completion of nursing school and the beginning of a new career. Originating with nursing pioneer Florence Nightingale during the Crimean War, the presentation of the pin and the lighting of the nurses'lamp symbolically initiates new nurses to the profession. Graduate Benjamin Manning was recognized for excellence in clinical practice. Kimberly La Valle received the leadership award and Joyia Montanez received honors for high academic achievement. Said college President Jonathan Gueverra: "This program is a partnership with many dedicated sponsors, particularly our local hospitals, clinics and doctors'offices that facilitate clinical training, as well as our valued donors who provide critically needed scholarships and other supplemental support." The 22-month nursing program leads to an associate's degree. Upon completion, graduates are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN state exam to become registered nurses. Additionally, many of the graduates will immediately enter the workforce staffing hospitals, doctors' offices and clinics throughout the Keys and elsewhere.

Somethin g chocolate. Somethin g that will impress. Somethin g that really screams celebration. But you don't want to spend hours makin g it. The answer? Aflourless chocolate cake. It's like a baked truffle simple, yet sensational enou g h to impress your g uests. All you have to do is dress it up with whipped cream and fresh berries. Be sure to cut small slices from this; it really is amazin g ly rich. What you need: 1.5 cups (three sticks) unsalted butter. Twelve ounces bittersweet chocolate bits. Three-quarters of a cup stron g brewed coffee. Six e gg s. Three-quarters of a cup packed brown su g ar. Half a cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted. Apinch of salt. Two tablespoons brandy or rum. Whipped cream, to serve. Fresh berries or shaved chocolate, to serve. Heat the oven to 350. Coat an ei g ht-inch cake pan with cookin g spray. Line the bottom of the pan with a piece of parchment paper cut to fit. Set the cake pan in a lar g er bakin g dish, such as a 9-by-13-inch bakin g pan. In a medium saucepan over medium-hi g h heat, melt the butter. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the chocolate bits until completely melted and smooth. Stir in the coffee. In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to beat to g ether the e gg s, brown su g ar, cocoa powder, salt and brandy for two to three minutes, or until sli g htly thickened. Beat in the chocolate-butter mixture. The batter should resemble a thick puddin g Pour the batter into the cake pan, ji gg lin g the pan to settle the batter so that it's level. Place the lar g er pan with the cake pan in it into the oven. Pour hot water into the lar g er pan, bein g careful not to get any water on the cake batter. Add enou g h water to brin g it halfway up the sides of the cake pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the cake is sli g htly puffed and set in the middle. Carefully remove the pan from the oven; be careful not to splash the hot water. Remove the cake pan from the water bath and allow the cake to cool fully in the pan. Place a servin g plate over the cake pan and invert so that the pan is on top of the servin g plate. Gently lift the cake pan off, then peel away the parchment paper.

Wanted: AmateurastronomersAstronomers are looking for thousands of volunteers to scan computerized images of a neighboring galaxy in a survey that could help explain how stars are continually being formed across the universe. The survey is exploring the Milky Way's nearest big neighbor, the Andromeda galaxy, about 2.5 million light years away. Anyone can participate at www.andromedapro ject.org The interactive website offers about 12,000 images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, and organizers want each image to be viewed as many as 20 times. Astronomers say it would take them too long to spotlight the star clusters on their own, and that pattern-recognition software isn't good at picking out star clusters. They're turning to Internet "crowdsourcing" to speed things up. "We thought this would be a good opportunity to engage the public, and it's been very exciting," said Anil Seth, assistant University of Utah professor of physics and astronomy. "We've had more than 7,000 participants from around the world looking at 150,000 images already." Participants are asked to look for star clusters, which can be dated by professionals based on the light intensity of the largest and therefore youngest stars inside a cluster. Experts say massive stars are like rock stars: They live fast and die young. The online project will continue until summer, when a final set of Hubble photographs will bring the total number of Andromeda images to about 15,000, which will cover just a third of the spiral galaxy. The Andromeda Project includes other scientists at the University of Washington, Adler Planetarium in Chicago, Oxford University, University of Minnesota, University of Alabama and the European Space Agency. "You don't need to know anything about astronomy to participate, and it's actually pretty fun, like playing an online game," said Cliff Johnson, a University of Washington graduate student working on the project. Seth said finding star clusters is easy but time-consuming. He estimates half the available images contain no star clusters at all. It took eight scientists working more than a month to identify just 600 star clusters. That's less than a quarter of the 2,500 clusters they believe will be shown by the full set of Hubble images of Andromeda, out of some 100 million stars in all, most isolated as single specks in the images. "Many people say, I don't know what star clusters are going to look like,'" Seth said. "But once you get started, you start seeing a pattern of clusters among individual stars." Participants will also see distant galaxies in the background, notable for their spiral shapes and dimmer light. Stars can appear blue, white or reddish. Seth said that clusters with a lot of blue stars are younger in age, while white or reddish stars are older. The clusters are thought to form from dense clouds of gas that collapse inward owing to the force of gravity before breaking up into distinct stars. "The details of how that happens is not well understood," Seth said. It wasn't until the 1920s that astronomer Edwin Hubble confirmed other galaxies exist beyond the Milky Way, each with billions of stars. Hubble observed Andromeda. It isn't the closest galaxy, but Andromeda is the Milky Way's closest spiral-shaped neighbor. Andromeda wraps hundreds of billions of stars in a diameter spanning 160,000 light years across that's 940 million-billion miles, astronomers say. The star clusters in Andromeda are typically about 20 light years across, or 118 trillion miles.Experts turn to crowdsourcing for researchBy PAUL FOYAssociated PressASTRONOMYVOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR Gloria McMillan (right) shows off the pineapple pin she received after being named the Mariners Hospital Auxiliary volunteer of the year.Presenting it are George Geisler (left),auxiliary president,and Rick Freeburg, Mariners chief executive officer.McMillan has volunteered 1,450 hours since she joined the auxiliary in 2005A DAY IN THE LIFE Keys students recently took part in the Day in the Life of a Nurse program at Mariners Hospital in Tavernier.

But for every connection, there often is a disconnect. Its the nature of the creative process and one reason why art sleuths are forever looking for old masters works hidden under some latter-day artists work. Starting Dec. 20, art lovers and just the curious will get a chance to explore the theme of connection and disconnect at The Studios of Key West. The show is, aptly, titled Connect/Disconnect. An opening reception is set for 6 to 9 p.m. Dec. 20 at the Studios, 600 White St., to introduce the works and the artists. This is the third annual Studios members show, sometimes called the Winter Show, and will feature an eclectic mix of media and motifs and techniques. Jed Dodds, executive director of the Studios, says the theme arose from a realization that Key West is a place where people come to check out a little bit. You know, an island onto itself. Yet while theyre here, they live an incredibly engaged lifestyle and are connected to the world around them. The collection will be on display in the Studiosmain hall through Jan. 11. Dodds talks about a frission that underlies the artistic impulse. Its a central conundrum in Key West. Artists disconnect and when working look for connections with the world outside.

The winner of Tony, Drama Desk and Olivier Awards, The 39 Steps is part juicy spy novel, part Monty Python and all theatrical dazzle. A New York Times review of the play called it absurdly enjoyable. This gleefully theatrical riff on Hitchcocks film is fast and furious. Hitchcocks 1935 film was adapted from John Buchans 1915 novel The 39 Steps. Its the story of Richard Hannay, a man bored with his life and anxious for adventure. When a beautiful and mysterious woman winds up murdered in his flat, he suddenly becomes a man on the run, trying to clear his name. More importantly, he desperately tries to prevent top-secret information fromThe 39 Steps opens Dec. 20 for 3-week runTHEATER This is the cast of The 39 Steps,which opens Dec.20 (previews are the two nights previous).Film Fest plans for 2013The 2012 Key West Film Festival is now history. Running from Nov. 29 through Dec. 2, the festival featured more than 30 films on topics as diverse as the Holocaust, gay adoption, cheating lovers and the campaign to save Polaroid instant film, to name a few. The films starred some A-list actors and more than a few unknown but hopeful actors. Organizers say they are pleased with the response to the inaugural festival and plans are already under way for next years event, scheduled for Dec. 5 to 8, 2013. The festivals primary driving forces were Brooke Christian, founder and chairman; Stephen Ananicz, vice chairman; and Ethan Crooks, secretary. With plenty of assistance from locals, the festival boasted an amazing array of talent that included Avery Pearson, Andrew Shortell, Danny Leonard, Lauren Lou Booker, Chris Moryl, Nadene Grossman-Orr, Michael Tuckman, Bill and Amy Lay, Kevin Brown, George Fernandez and many others. The Monroe County Tourist Development Council and Rita Troxel from the Florida Keys & Key West Film Commission also helped get the festival off the ground. Christian said the idea came about a year and a half ago when he realized he had been visiting Key West for 20 years but the city did not have a film festival.

Why not Key West? After numerous conversations, he said, a plan slowly grew into reality. The three men brought different strengths to the venture. Christian would be the financier, Ananicz would handle programming and Crooks would act as legal advisor. Unlike other film festivals, they did not bring in outside consultants to help vet the films; it was done in-house, Christian said. But they did line up several film distributors who were in Key West to check out the films. Asked if the festival would be a nonprofit or forprofit venture, Christian laughed: At this point, it looks like its going to be a nonprofit event but were hoping that it will at least carry some expenses. He added that festival organizers and filmmakers were not paid to show films or to have their films shown. Aconcert with musician Mat Kearney was part of the original planning, Christian said, adding that they wanted to incorporate music into the festival and plan to do it again next year. Yes, for sure. We have a five-, 10-year plan for the Key West Film Festival and, hopefully, it will get bigger and better every year. Grossman-Orr, whom Christian singled out as invaluable in promoting the festival, said attendance and sales met their expectations. She also said that Key West has such a welcoming and open atmosphere that when you add in the human factor, the city was a terrific host. Grossman-Orr said quite a few attending were from the mainland. While some films drew bigger crowds than others, all of the movies were wellreceived. Any Day Now, Quartetand The Sapphireswere the big crowd pleasers, with soldout showings, she said. Another big hit was Tiger Eyes, co-written by Key West resident Judy Blume from an adaptation of her book. Several awards were handed out during the festival. Actor Alan Cummings, appearing on the CBS hit drama The Good Wife, won the Golden Key Award for his role in Any Day Now, which won the Narrative Feature Film award. Other winners included Struck by Lightning for LGBT Feature Film; Gender Block 66 for Documentary Feature Film; Journey to Planet X for Florida Feature Film; and The Sapphires for Foreign Feature Film. Organizers said the mission of the Key West Film Festival was to showcase films that exhibit excellence in storytelling and capture the essence of what Key West is all about: Creativity, diversity, sustainability, and beauty. Some lessons learned for next year include implementing a better ticketing system, recruiting more volunteers and lining up more sponsors to help fund the event. But organizers and filmmakers all agree that the inaugural event was a hit, and everyone is looking forward to next year, Christian said.For next year, better ticketingFrom Wanous,6B The Stone Soup Gallery,802 White St.,Key West,presents visual artist Joe Jackson in his first one-man show, opening with an evening reception Dec.20 and continuing through Jan.7.Jackson will show 15 oil paintings from his series titled Time and Tide:Finding Life at Waters Edge.This is Untitled,which will be part of the show.ONE-MAN SHOWfalling into enemy hands, which could bring down the British Empire. The play doesnt mock the movie, but rather takes the film dialogue as a jumping-off place for comic mayhem, said Danny Weathers, artistic director at the Waterfront Shameless stereotypes, over-the-top accents and physical gags help spoof the Hitchcock style and genre, all played with a speed that will leave audiences breathless. The stage version calls for the Hitchcock film to be performed in its entirety, but with the amazing feat of using only four actors to portray a cast of 100s in under two hours, including intermission, Weathers said. As part of the fun adapting an iconic Hitchcock film, the play deploys allusions, winks and puns on titles of other Hitchcock works, including Rear Window, Psycho, Strangers on a Train, and North by Northwest. Those attending can enjoy the mind game of seeing how many of those you can catch in this rapidfire production. Weathers said The 39 Steps is arguably the most challenging show weve done in my nine years with the Waterfront, and that covers a lot of territory. However, Im thrilled that we have an incredible group of actors, designers and technicians that are committed to wowing our audiences with this wonderful piece of theater. Brandon Beach will play the hero, Richard Hannay. Erin McKenna plays three women with whom Hannay has romantic entanglements. David Black and J.B. McLendon play the two clowns who portray more than 100 characters (vaudevillians, salesmen, villains, women, etc.). Michael Boyer created the constantly evolving set and set pieces that move with lightning speed. Kim Hanson is doing the light design. Costumes are by Leigh Hooten. And Weathers, along with Dan Simpson, will create the film-like sound design. Trish Manley, as stage manager, will orchestrate the 100s of technical cues that drive the actors, scenery, sound and lighting effects. Tickets range from $20 to $50, with the low-priced seats on preview nights Dec. 18 and 19. Openingnight tickets include a catered post-performance party. The production run ends Jan. 12.
