Thats the reason Dukeshire, 62, shot and killed Mazur, 64, last July 29 she asked Mazur for a beer and he said no. Thats when she shot him five times outside his Conch Key home at 53 N. Conch Ave. It was a little after 7 p.m. Mazur later was pronounced dead at Fishermens Community Hospital.Dukeshire known by her friends and co-workers as the Seahag pleaded guilty to second-degree murder Thursday, accepting an agreement with the State Attorneys Office for a maximum 30 years in prison. Assistant Public Defender Patrick Stevens represented her.Agrand jury handed down a first-degree murder charge against Dukeshire in August. Assistant State Attorney Tanner Demmery said Mazurs brother was at Thursdays hearing before acting Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker. The brother of the victim, he elected to have the victim advocate read his prepared statement to the court. Ms. Dukeshire had no comment, he said. Demmery said Dukeshire submitted a statement to Becker indicating her remorse and that shed pay the rest of her life for losing composure in that moment. A17-year Keys resident, Dukeshire had no previous arrest history in Monroe County.

SEC details Ponzi chargesThe attorney for Dave Clark, a founder of Cay Clubs Resorts and Marinas and one of five Cay Clubs executives the feds say ran a $300 million Ponzi scheme victimizing 1,400 people, says his client didnt do it. We intend to vigorously defend these allegations in court, Boca Raton attorney Jeffrey Cox said.Wednesday, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filed a civil complaint in U.S. District Court in Miami alleging the Cay Clubs executives used the company created in 2004 and which collapsed in 2008 to swindle investors while enriching themselves to buy houses, planes, boats and more.Cay Clubs had its hands in numerous Keys properties, and the feds say its principles defrauded investors into believing they were funding the development of five-star destination resorts in Florida and Las Vegas when they were actually buying into a Ponzi scheme.Investors were promised immediate income from a guaranteed 15 percent return and a future income stream through a rental program that Cay Clubs managed. But instead of using investor funds to develop resort properties and units, the Cay Clubs executives used new investor deposits to pay leaseback returns to earlier investors and to lavish themselves with luxury living.Accused:Former Key Largo resident Clark, 54, Cay Clubs co-founder, president and chief executive officer who now lives in the Cayman Islands running a companyFive accused of fraudulent Keys dealsCAY CLUBSKeynoter Staff Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWA sign promoting the long-defunct Cristal Clear Charters dive shop still stands off U.S. 1 near Tavernier Creek,one of the few reminders of businesses closely tied to Cay Clubs in the Florida Keys.Cabanas honor sought at airfieldThe Key West City Commission on Tuesday will consider asking the Monroe County Commission to name part or all of Key West International Airport after Freddy Cabanas, a pilot who died Jan. 15 when the plane he was operating crashed near Cozumel, Mexico. Cabanas, who was 60, operated a biplane tour business at the airport since 1987 and was a fixture in Key West skies and at aerobatics shows nationwide. But theres a problem: If the Key West commission asks the Monroe County Commission to name the airport terminal for Cabanas, the county lawmakers would have to do something theyve been loathe to: Readdress the issue of the McCoy Terminal Complex.In 2005, thats what the county commissioners named the terminal to honor thenCounty Commissioner Sonny McCoy. But three years later, McCoy was found in federal court to have sexually harassed his aide in 2005 and 2006, and she was awarded $48,000.Overall, counting legal fees, the case cost the county $282,000, with most of that paid through insurance. Many in the Keys demanded the McCoy name be stripped from the terminal, and the County Commission kicked the issue to its Historic Preservation Commission. No action has been taken since, so it remains named after McCoy, although theres no plaque or sign there bearing his name. Key West Commissioner Billy Wardlow is the one asking his colleagues to make the Cabanas request to the County Commission.Wardlow:Name something for the late pilotBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTClerks plead for funds restorationChanges are needed in a statewide court-funding system that forced early closing hours and pay cuts in county clerksoffices statewide, clerks told Florida legislators preparing for their spring session.Right now its too early to tell what will happen in Tallahassee, said Amy Heavilin, newly sworn into office as Monroe Countys clerk of the courts.Everything is still in the proposal stage, Heavilin said.

AMonroe County nonprofit group is auctioning a piece of history from the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum in Key West. Listed on eBay is a wrought-iron gate from the Nobel laureates Old Town home on Whitehead Street. The museum has replaced it and gave the original to Helpline Inc. to sell as a fundraiser. As of early Friday, 50 bids had been received, with the highest being $6,100. The cutoff for bids is Feb. 8.After spending two seasons in Key West starting in 1928, Hemingway moved into the 907 Whitehead St. compound in 1931. He lived there until around 1940 and, between bar sessions at Sloppy Joes on Duval Street, wrote several books, including To Have and Have Not and The Snows of Kilimanjaro.The gate is believed to date to 1935, when the familiar wall was built around the property. Due to a federal courts order, in 2011, it was replaced with a barrier designed to better contain the famous polydactyl cats there are around 45 there now that roam the oneacre gardens and Spanish Colonial-style home. The gate was at the side entrance to Hemingways garden on Olivia Street. Helpline received the gate in 2011 from a former board member who owns a Stock Island fence company and had worked at the house.Helpline operates a 24-hour hotline that provides confidential crisis intervention, education, referral, substance abuse prevention, homeless outreach and elder reassurance.Design firm near for new city hallAfter years of wrangling, the Key West City Commission is poised to begin the process of designing a refit of Glynn Archer Elementary School for use as a new city hall.The next step comes Tuesday, when commissioners consider a staff ranking of the architectural firms vying to transform the White Street school more than 80 years old into a modern administrative complex.Eight firms responded to a request for qualifications floated in October. Acommittee comprising City Planner Don Craig, Chief Building Official John Woodson, Senior Project Manager Doug Bradshaw, engineer Jim Reynolds and Naval Air Station Key West architect William Knetge evaluated the responses using a 100-point scale.Criteria includes past work experience, specialized experience and technical competence, professional qualifications of the firms staff, ability to perform services expeditiously, and cost estimating for conversion of historical structures.The top three ranked respondents are:William P. Horn Architects of Key West with 89 points.Bender and Associates Architects of Key West with 87 points.Rodriguez and Quiroga of Coral Gables with 78 points.Commissioners will review the rankings, pick a firm, and then direct City Manager Bob Vitas to begin contract negotiations for architectural services.In October, commissioners opted to pursue a projected $21.78 million conversion of the property, which means essentially that a new building will be framed and constructed inside the existing historic outer shell.The price tag includes around $5 million for a new fire station at 525 Angela St., site of the former city hall, which has mold and structural problems. The projects have always been jointly discussed.The approximately 300 Glynn Archer students will start the 2013-14 school year in a new elementary school wing thats under construction at Horace OBryant Middle School on Leon Street.Committee chooses 3 finalistsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTlobster-trap work: Do you have a cold beer for me? He reportedly replied, I have absolutely nothing for you. Thats when Dukeshire shot Mazur twice in the lower right abdomen, twice in the back and once in the right wrist. Deputy Michael Claudys report says it seems apparent Mazur was attempting to flee from the gunfire but collapsed near a tiki bar in his back yard. Mazurs reported business partner, Casey Whippo, 30, witnessed the shooting and told police he struggled with Dukeshire for the gun. Sheriffs Office divers recovered the small-caliber weapon the next day in a canal behind the house.Cops say victim tried to get awayFrom Dukeshire,1ACuts to that portion of the budget, plus a shortfall in filing fees from foreclosures and other cases, caused a statewide pinch at courthouses.Last spring, then-Monroe Clerk Danny Kolhage halted court operations at 3 p.m. Fridays and instituted pay cuts. When legislators made an emergency allocation of $30 million distributed to the 67 counties, normal operations resumed in August. Im well aware of the fact that we had clerks who were bankrupt, literally, in their counties, State Sen. Charlie Dean (R-Inverness) said at the January hearing. Its ridiculous to have ... a constitutional officer in this position. And its our fault. Heavilin said the Monroe clerks office now has a staff of 97 serving the Lower, Middle and Upper Keys.Kolhage retired last year and won a seat on the Monroe County Commission, which funds about $2.7 million of the clerks budget. Heavilin said about five senior staff members retired or left the office with the change in administrations. Some of those positions have been filled by people who had years of service in the office, she said.

Villalobos gets the max in DUI deathsMarathon resident Pierson Villalobos was sentenced to 30 years in state prison Thursday for killing Deborah Mangrum and Christopher Jennings in a 2009 drunkdriving car crash. Acting Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker handed down the maximum 15-year sentence for each of two driving under the influencemanslaughter charges.Villalobos was also convicted on two counts of vehicular homicide, but the law does not allow for the sentences to be served back to back. That means Villalobos was facing a maximum of 30 years, not 60, in prison. Assistant State Attorney Tanner Demmery said the fathers of both victims attended Thursdays sentencing.Mr. Carroll [Mangrums father] flew down and he gave a statement on behalf of himself. He also read a statement her daughter wrote. Mr. Jennings provided a statement to the court and was really too upset to read his statement out loud, Demmery said.Demmery said Villalobos gave a statement in Spanish that was translated by a court interpreter.He was asking for a little over 20 years, which was the bottom of the score sheet. [Becker] elected to give him the max for each count, he said. Ascore sheet takes various factors into account in recommending sentence length.Asix-person jury convicted Villalobos on all four charges on Oct. 25. It took the jury just 51 minutes to convict after a two-day trial at the Marathon courthouse near mile marker 48.5 just a few blocks from where fatal crash happened. The jury rejected defense attorneys Tyrone and Rose Valentines claim that Villalobospassenger, Yendel Garcia, was driving when the crash occurred. The crash happened the evening of Nov. 28, 2009, near U.S. 1 and 23rd Street in Old Town Marathon. Sheriffs Office reports say Villalobos1999 Ford pickup was headed northbound on U.S. 1 and collided with a 2009 Toyota driven by Mercedes Diaz. It then struck a car driven by Deborah Mangrum. Mangrum died at the scene, while her passenger, Christopher Jennings, died a few days later at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami.

He was Cay Clubs chief financial officer who had signatory authority over Cay Clubsbank accounts from at least 2004 to 2007.Cristal Coleman, 39, Clarks wife who lives with him in the Caymans. From at least 2004 until 2008, she served as manager, managing member and the registered agent for many of the entities that comprised Cay Clubs.In 2008, Coleman was charged in Monroe County with felony scheme to defraud through her company Cristal Clear Rentals, which booked vacation rentals. The charges were dropped the following year after she paid back $104,000 to unit owners or vacationers she defrauded.Barry Graham, 57, of Marathon, who from at least 2005 to 2008 was Cay Clubssales director. In 1984, he pleaded no contest to federal charges of selling unregistered securities and was sentenced to five years in prison. Graham has never been registered with the commission in any capacity.Rick Stokes, 53, of Fort Myers, who from at least 2005 to 2008 was Cay Clubs director of investor relations and one of Cay Clubshighest-producing sales agents. Stokes has never been registered with the commission in any capacity.Civil penalties they face include paying back all the money they took from investors, with interest, and other financial penalties for violating federal securities laws. The penalties could be substantial, said Eric Bustillo, director of the SECs Miami region. The SEC complaint also seeks a sworn accounting of all proceeds received from the investors, Bustillo said. The SEC enforces only civil penalties, and Bustillo said he doesnt if any agency with criminal law enforcement powers is investigating Cay Clubs executives. The Key Largo-based Cay Clubs bought up dozens of properties in the Keys and many more statewide and nationwide during last decades real estate boom, promising to build lavish condominiums, hotels and restaurants. But the company went bust in 2008, and at the time it appeared it was a victim of the bursting bubble that sank most of the nations housing market. The feds say that wasnt the case.They paid themselves exorbitant salaries and commissions totaling more than $30 million, and investor funds also were misused to buy airplanes and boats. While still advertising itself as a profitable venture, Cay Clubs eventually abandoned its operations. Many investorsproperties went into foreclosure.Clark and Schwarz launched Cay Clubs in 2004 and operated it from Clarks home at the time in Key Largo, the agency said. The venture eventually entailed a web of more than 100 companies and 150 bank accounts. The scheme involved a network of hundreds of sales agents, marketing seminars and podcasts.

StormwaterAlso Tuesday, Key West commissioners are expected to approve a $214,630 settlement with Florida Keys Community College. It represents stormwater fees a judge ruled were incorrectly billed by the city.In 2002, the city established an ordinance that outlined stormwater fees but didnt start billing the college until 2005. The first bill included three years of accumulated charges of more than $65,000. Subsequent bills, $3,102 monthly, were paid upon receipt by the college. The court found the college has sovereign immunity as a state entity and that the city doesnt even have a stormwater collection system on the Stock Island campus.Key West stormwater fees are calculated based on the amount of non-permeable land that water will run off as opposed to soak into. For instance, a parking lot or building would be subject to stormwater fees but a park or green space would not.

The team efforts and flawless efficiency of individuals eliminated any opportunity for error.Their participation and commitment enables us to improve the ability to provide the best possible care and treatment to our dolphin Sarah. The efforts made will additionally contribute many educational opportunities to those studying and working with marine mammals. We are so grateful for their dedication and commitment to our organizations and the greater marine mammal community.Deena Hoagland, director Island Dolphin Care Key LargoDont be complacentPresident Obama sent the message that we the people are responsible for protecting and preserving the freedom and democracy that our predecessors wrote into our Constitution and now our generation has the responsibility to pass it on to the next generation. Each of us must participate in local, state and federal government by imploring our elected officials to do the peoples business and stop concentrating on getting re-elected. Our voice must be greater and more constant than the lobbyists who have taken control of our elected officialspriorities. I feel the sources of our political and environmental problems include ignorance, greed and complacency. In my opinion, the most serious is complacency. Until one gets involved in the solution to a problem, they should be satisfied with what they get. Morgan Levy DoralDo we allow people aboard planes without security checks? No. Then why oppose gun background checks?Even after the stunning tragedy in Newtown, Conn., its nearly impossible for Congress to hold a constructive conversation over gun control, thanks to efforts by diehard opponents led by the National Rifle Association and its supporters. Even a modest proposal like closing the gaping loophole on registration to limit the possibility that lethal firearms will fall into the wrong hands drew an intemperate display of contempt from Wayne LaPierre, chief executive of the NRA, as the Senate kicked off hearings on gun control. His opposition to a proposed requirement for background checks on all firearms buyers, including at gun shows, was as unpersuasive as it was ineloquent: Universal background checks, which sounds, whatever, ends up being a universal federal nightmare, he told members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. The proposal is a key component of gun control legislation because 40 percent of purchases are made at gun shows and other venues that exempt buyers from the sensible requirement for a criminal background check that other buyers undergo at stores. Back in the 1990s, Mr. LaPierre and the NRA were in favor of universal background checks but the NRAhas hardened its opposition to any change since. Thats even though 90 percent of the American public supports such checks. Allowing 40 percent of those acquiring guns to bypass checks is like allowing 40 percent of passengers to board a plane without going through security, Baltimore Police Chief James Johnson testified at the hearing. Would we do this? Of course we wouldnt, and we dont. So why should it be any different when it comes to firearms purchases? Why shouldnt we do everything possible to keep guns away from criminals, terrorists and the mentally ill? To support his position, LaPierre used misleading statistics, saying that out of more than 76,000 firearms purchases supposedly denied by the federal instant check system, only 62 were referred for prosecution. We need better enforcement, he argued, not new laws. But under questioning by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), it turned out that the number the NRAchief used, 62, was only for Chicago. The actual statistics, according to Whitehouse: In 2012 more than 11,700 defendants were charged with federal gun crimes. LaPierres testimony and his unjustifiable defense of a loophole in the law that has no merit exposed both the desperation of gun-control opponents and their unwillingness to engage in an honest and constructive discussion of an urgent issue on the national agenda. Miami Herald Sarah the Dolphin gets a CT scan at Mariners Hospital in Tavernier.Thank a teacherAs we enter February to watch the Super Bowl and celebrate Valentines Day, lets be sure to recognize teachers.As a professor of education for 39 years at the University of Miami, I always told the education majors that they were the creme de la creme. Recently Sports Illustrated featured two former UM football stars, Frank Gore and Ray Lewis, as projected superstars for the big game. Im proud of them, but Id like readers to acknowledge teachers as superstars, too.Teachers are on the front line 180 days a year, so we should show our appreciation with prayers, notes, praise and even gift cards this Valentines Day. Id love to see educators recognized as frequently as we honor athletes.Harry W. Forgan TavernierTry the ThaiAfew nights ago we went to the Thai restaurant, Takara, for dinner before going to the cinema. There were several pleasant surprises. The menu is extensive and enticing. The food is presented very nicely and is excellent. And the server was efficient and fun. Unfortunately, there were no other customers there while we dined. Granted, we left by 6:25 in order to go to the movie, but we were really surprised at the emptiness of the place, especially when the food was so good. I urge your readers to go there (around 37th street on Overseas Highway bayside) so that Marathon does not lose this unique dining establishment. Try it, youll like it. Penny Ludwin Key Colony BeachCops: Drugs led to theftACudjoe Key woman was arrested Wednesday and charged with 10 felonies for allegedly stealing goods from her boyfriend, then pawning the merchandise for drug money. Christina Whitaker, 23, was already in the Monroe County Detention Center on unrelated probation-violation charges when she was charged with alleged theft and fraud. The Sheriffs Office says that on Jan. 25, Whitakers boyfriend told Deputy Joe Cortner that when he returned home, someone had taken dive and fishing gear along with a hunting bow, Xbox games and some movies.Cortner said the boyfriend told him he suspected his girlfriend ... may have taken them because he said she has a drug problem and is not working.When Cortner later interviewed Whitaker, she admitted to taking all the items and pawning them at Joes Cash Flow in Marathon and Mollys Pawn and More on Big Pine Key.Whitaker is charged with five felony counts each of grand theft and giving false information to the pawnshop clerks. The probation-violation counts stem from a 2011 arrest for theft and criminal mischief.Woman faces 10 felonies, other countsCUDJOE KEYKeynoter Staff WHITAKER Raschein: $50M for sewers likelyState Rep. Holly Raschein says that Gov. Rick Scott leaving out a second $50 million state bond for Keys sewer construction in his proposed 2013-14 budget, released Thursday, is nothing to be concerned about.She said Scott Chief of Staff Adam Hollingsworth called her Wednesday to tell her the governor looks forward to signing a budget with the $50 million in it. Scotts overall proposed state budget is $74.2 billion. Hollingsworth wanted to give me a heads up that the funding was not going to be in there, she said. They are most interested in seeing the interlocal agreement that the county is working on, as am I.Raschein said she expects that agreement about how to split up the sewer money will be approved by local officials this month and that Ill have it in my hands before session. The two-month 2013 session begins March 5.Were shooting to try to get it on the February County Commission agenda, County Attorney Bob Shillinger said.Monroe County and the various sewer authorities up and down the Keys are working on the agreement, which would make official the disbursement of the $50 million.Officials have tentatively agreed that Marathon and the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District would each receive $20 million. The Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority would receive $5 million, Key West $4 million and Key Colony Beach $1 million.Of the first $50 million last year, Monroe County received $30 million and Islamorada received $20 million.The money is part of a four-year $200 million socalled Mayfield grant specifically for Keys sewer upgrades to improve water quality. Keys officials have pitched to Scott that all of the construction will create countless jobs.Marathon City Manager Roger Hernstadt said he expected, as most did, Scott to leave the $50 million out of his proposed budget which the Legislature can reject.My interpretation is that he wants it to go through the legislative process like it did last year. Since we were successful last year, well explore a similar technique to get it passed this year, Hernstadt said.The Marathon City Council has expressed a desire to lower residentsmonthly wastewater operations and maintenance charge. But how the money would be spent has yet to be determined.The money will afford the residents of Marathon a cost savings in one form or another, Hernstadt said. As to that form, thats the decision of the City Council once we have the money in hand. Theres a variety of things they could do to reduce the expense of the system.Key Large Wastewater spokesman Paul Christian said likewise. Our No. 1 priority is to lower rates. Were constantly [examining] what can we do to create a situation where we lower rates. In order to lower rates we have to reduce debt, he said.Moneys not in governors new budgetWASTEWATER UPGRADESBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comGov.Rick Scotts overall proposed state budget is $74.2 billion.

BusinessJob Corps cutting costsFor tens of thousands of atrisk American teens and young adults, the federal governments Job Corps program offers a second chance at gaining professional skills and furthering their education.But the U.S. Department of Labor, which oversees the program, is looking to bridge a $60 million gap in its $1.6 billion budget. Job Corps, at least temporarily, has fallen victim to the fiscal scalpel.The Labor Department announced late last month that effective Jan. 28, only applicants who are homeless, runaways or in foster care will be accepted into the system.The enrollment suspension is projected to end in June, but some lawmakers arent convinced. About 70 members of the House of Representatives sent a letter on Jan. 25 to Seth D. Harris, Labor Department acting secretary, complaining they cant get straight answers about his departments plans for the program. Young people looking to join Job Corps and their parents are also discouraged by the announcement. Jane, who asked The Reporter not to use her real name so her 19-year-old son would not be identified, is a believer in Job Corps after seeing the positive impact it had on her brothers life. He was a troubled teenager before enrolling in the program. He went on to have a successful Army and, later, civil-service career. It changed his life, Jane said. Janes son was looking forward to joining Job Corps based on his uncles experience and he doesnt know where he wants his career path to lead right now. Job Corps is aimed mainly at at-risk young people between ages 16 and 24, but it is also open to those who require additional education, vocational training, or intensive counseling and related assistance in order to participate successfully in regular school work or to secure and hold employment, according to the Job Corps website. About 65,000 people a year enroll in Job Corps.Janes son has a job paying minimum wage but he is not learning anything that will help him achieve potential career goals, his mother said. Jane said her son was also excited to join the Job Corps because he doesnt want to go into debt paying for college or a vocational school.The people this affects the most are the poor, she said.Leni Fortson, a Department of Labor spokeswoman, said the enrollment suspensions are being done as an ongoing effort to ensure the program is operating within current appropriate funding levels.Regardless, the Obama administration is planning more cuts to Job Corps.Labor Department funding for Job Corps has decreased by more than $25,000 in the past three years from a $1,570,932 operating budget in 2011 to $1,545,872 requested for 2013. And the agency stated in its fiscal year 2013 budget request that it plans to close a small number of Job Corps centers that are chronically low-performing, which will be identified using criteria the administration will publish in advance.Fortson said she was not aware if the Homestead facility at 12350 SW285th St. that serves the Keys is one of those targeted centers. The Department of Labor contracts with different companies to run its 125 Job Corps facilities nationwide. Louisville, Ky., company ResCare runs the Homestead center.Sharon Singletary, executive assistant for ResCare in Homestead, said she does not know what the Labor Departments plans are for the Homestead center. Job Corps centers employ about 16,000 people.House lawmakers said in their letter that the Labor Department has not released the anticipated cost savings the department hopes to achieve by suspending enrollment and closing centers.Effect on Keys center isnt knownBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comTHE WORKPLACEU.S.Rep.Ileana Ros-Lehtinen meets with participants in the Job Corps program in Homestead.
The Ocean Studies Charter School in Tavernier has received a $350,000 grant from the state Department of Education that will be used primarily to purchase classroom supplies and materials.The small charter, which bases its curriculum around an appreciation and study of the Florida Keysunique marine environment, will receive two installments of $175,000, one for the current school year, the other in the 2013-14 school year. The news came as a relief to the Monroe County School Board, which at a recent meeting in Key West reviewed the schools financial report. It indicated available funds of just $63. News of the grant seemed to allay those concerns. Its enough to cover the funding, and I accepted that as a good explanation, School Board member John Dick said. They gave a reasonable explanation of why it will be OK going forward.Former School Board member Steve Pribramsky, an accountant by trade, volunteers with Ocean Studies to help with the schools books.Principal Jennifer Flores lauded the grant, which she said would go along way at the small public charter. Its really an exciting thing for our school, she said. Its really helping us get the program that we envision up and running, and its just so nice to have that opportunity.The school has already bought 10 tandem kayaks for students to use. Kayaks were formerly rented from area vendors or temporarily provided by donors. The grant also paid for life jackets for each of the schools 72 students.Flores said she also plans to purchase digital projector microscopes, new textbooks and furniture, among other things.She said the new equipment will not only help them understand marine science but also engage in their day-today school work. We couldnt do all these lovely things without the help of this grant.Charter schools are public schools funded by the state, with the local school district acting as a funding conduit and keeping 5 percent of annual per student allocations. They differ from traditional public schools in that they are not bound by rigorous bureaucratic reporting, curriculum and student progression policies. Ocean Studies serves students from kindergarten to grade three. Flores said parents have responded so well to the curriculum approach that plans are in the works to expand to include grades four and five. In terms of students, the school plans to grow from 72 to 90 pupils in the next school year and, under the terms of its charter with the School Board, could take up to 116 students. Eventually well go to 116, Flores said, but were growing slowly. We dont want to grow too quickly. Our school is going really great and our parents are really happy. The grant comes from the Florida Public Charter Schools Grant Program, which accepts applications in the form of requests for proposals, then awards federal allocations to schools and districts that meet detailed planning and implementation strategies.Money comes just as funds were fallingBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com KeysNet.com Keynoter 6A Saturday,February 2,2013 THE TOP 9 REASONSNOT TO SETTLEFOR U-VERSEGet more of what you love with XFINITY.

We talked about the weather conditions, [that] wed have the wind at our back and we were going to be able to create some opportunities. We just had to keep at it and knock on that door. And if you keep knocking on it, someone is going to answer, coach Cindy Durkin said. Whether it was the steady southeast wind or some other factor, the Dolphins looked like a different team in the second half.

Dolphin guard Shemar Fantroy played a key role in the closing seconds, hitting two free throws to tie the game and picking off a Coral Shores pass to set up the winning bucket.

Thats the question facing the Key West High School softball team 10-15 in 2012 as it embarks on a new season. The Conchs will play preseason games today in Miami against Taravella High (of Coral Springs) and American (of Miami Lakes) before opening at home at 7 p.m. Feb. 7 against Marathon. Coming off outstanding junior seasons are second baseman Devin Osterhoudt, third baseman Lauren Schoneck and center fielder Raquel Schoneck, all of whom are adept with the glove and the bat.Osterhoudt was the most valuable player of last years team, hitting .423 with nine extra-base hits. Lauren Schoneck hit .338 and Raquel named the top defensive player batted .361.The nucleus of our hitting is back and our defense should be OK but the pitching is new, said Steve Wells, who begins his fifth season as coach with a 45-50 record.Rachel Quad, the ace of last seasons staff, graduated, as did her backup, Savannah Hawthorne.

Its a decent accomplishment for a program thats struggled to win games in recent years.We had a real good run this year, coach Leslie Lindsey said. Our goal as a team was to achieve 10 wins, and we did that [including a preseason win] and there were a couple games that were cancelled, Lindsey said, referring to preseason and regular season wins combined. It was a good learning experience for the girls. Theyre starting to see what winning is about and it helps to see how the girls are doing in soccer. Hopefully they can feed off of that, she said.

We played good defense but the referees gave them a lot of calls. In Miami, youre going to get that home cooking.The score was 24-24 at the half. Multy scored 11 points and Ryann Appleby had 10.Stansbury played her best game of the season, McDowell said. She played great defense and was not getting the calls when she went to the basket. was able to recover back and contain us in the first half. In the second half, we just started opening things up, Durkin said. Sophomore Savannah Rodamer, who scored two goals Tuesday, said playing another game was all the motivation the girls needed. We dont want to end our season here. We play our hearts out every game, and this team, were more of a family than we are even a team and none of us want to go home, not yet, she said. It was Rodamer who scored the equalizer with 15:30 remaining in the game, on a play set up after senior Taylor Konrath was fouled just outside the 18-yard box. Freshman Regan Durkin placed a free kick just over a wall of defenders to a waiting Rodamer for a header to tie it at 1-1. The stands erupted and the Dolphins appeared to feed off that energy.Their next goal came with 10:49 remaining, off a wouldbe crossing ball from Chandler Elliot that found its way over the HEATgoalies hands and into the back of the net.I saw the ball going through and I knew we had a shot to pull it off. I never thought it would have gone in because my idea was to cross it, the eighth-grader said.Rodamer scored off a Konrath through ball with 8:01 remaining that put the game out of reach. She juked the HEATgoalie and put the ball to make it 3-1. Me and Taylor have chemistry when we play up top and she just sent the ball and I knew where it was going so I went after it, Rodamer said. Konrath scored the Dolphinsfinal goal on a penalty kick after the HEAT goalie took out Rodamer inside the 18-yard box as they converged on a loose ball. The goal came with less than five minutes remaining. The HEATare the lone common opponent this season for Marathon and Evangelical Christian.

Coral Shores got 23 points from center Will Ismer, a 6-foot-10 senior. Alberto Anderson scored 19, but the rest of the Coral Shores roster combined for just a dozen points. Nobody wants to listen to instructions, said Coral Shores coach Bruce Teachey. People are doing their own thing rather than trying to win the game. The Hurricanes dropped to 6-10 with their sixth straight loss.After both clubs scored 15 points in the opening quarter, Marathon raced ahead with a 22-point second quarter for a 37-27 halftime lead.Coral Shoresdefense tightened in the third to hold the Dolphins to six points.

It all started with a 4 a.m. e-mail nearly a year ago: Do you think a baby bib could change the world? I do. Then Susie Taylor included a link to her website, www.bibbitec.com and off it went to Shark Tank, the popular ABC television show where entrepreneurs pitch their companies to investors on the show and by extension, 7 million viewers. Four months later, as the mompreneur was leaving her Biscayne Park home to pick up her kids from school, she got a call from the show asking her to pitch on the spot. Driving with her phone on her shoulder, she told the Bibbitec story. Shark Tank bit. After a few more back and forths, her segment was filmed last summer. Friday night, Taylor was scheduled to be on the show pitching Bibbitecs main product, The Ultimate Bib, a patented generously sized, stain-resistant and fast-drying childs bib made in the U.S.A. Hialeah, to be exact. Bibbitecs $30 bib can be a burp cloth, changing pad, breastfeeding shield, full body bib, place mat, art smock and more, Taylor says. On Fridays show, she and her husband, Stephen Taylor, got into the tank with Daymond John, Mark Cuban and the other celebrity sharks; Taylor was contractually sworn to secrecy but whatever the outcome, she believes it was worth it for the marketing pop.Taylor was inspired to create her bib after a long and very messy plane ride with her two young sons and started Bibbitec in 2008. She and her team her husband is CFO; her sister, Heather McCabe, handles sales and marketing; her uncle, Richard Page, is in charge of production; and her aunt, Marcia Kreitman, advises on design have expanded the line to include The Ultimate Smock for older children and the Ultimate Mini for babies. Coming soon: Asmock for adults.Susan and Heather spent their youths weekending and vacationing at their familys home on Lower Matecumbe Key, and they are the nieces of Islamorada residents Kreitman and Jon Hawver. Taylor already got a taste of what a national TVshow appearance can do for sales. In September, Bibbitecs sales jumped 40 percent after she was on a Made in America segment on ABC World News.Within 30 seconds, we started getting sales from all over the country and they didnt even mention our name on the air, Taylor says. She said that confirmed her belief that a Shark Tank appearance would be worth it.Plus, Taylor has been hooked on Shark Tank since the first time she watched it in 2008 as she was developing her product. Trained in theater, she admits she didnt know much about business and learned from the show. She would practice how she would answer the questions.Im all about empowering women who are sitting on the couch watching, because thats what I was four years ago, Taylor said. All I wanted to do was to be on Shark Tankbecause I believed if I got on Shark Tank,the world will see what I am trying to do and thats all I need. I know its a great product. Did that theater training come in handy Friday night? Check the Shark Tank website to find out.

Nelson Government and Cultural Center in Key Largo.The Key Players production has a large cast, including: Gary Ellis, Mary-Ann Gibus, Russ Holmes, Ben Jones, Ron McMahon, Kathy Miller, Kat Newman.Much of the storys heart revolves around Norman Thayer, a crusty old man with failing memory, heart troubles and an acerbic wit. His wife, Ethel, is the perfect foil who battles mightily to hold onto the good times as Norman seems to slip away.Its been described as a love story of Ethel and Norman with some wonderful one-liners from Norman. There are comic elements, but also it tugs at your heart as the audience watches Normans character unfold.Astep-grandson left with the aging couple by their divorced, middle-aged daughter, proves a spark that re-ignites Normans passion for life.The New Yorker, reviewing the play, wrote: What courage it must have taken for Mr. Thompson in the nineteenseventies to write a play with so much affection in it.The film version, released in 1981, featured Fonda in his last film role, for which he won the Academy Award. He co-starred with Katherine Hepburn, who played Ethel.

Now playing nationwide. This movie is one of those anomalies one finds on online review websites: the critics hated it but audiences (sort of) liked it. On Rotten Tomatoes, critics gave it an 18 percent while audiences gave it a 67 percent. MetaCritic gave the film a low score of 23 out of 100.But while critics were raking it over the coals, the film was raking it in at the box office. Hansel & Gretel was the top grossing film last weekend, with a $55 million world-wide take so far. That may prove you shouldnt always go by what the critics say, myself included. Just because a film is not a critical success doesnt mean that you should skip it. Thats true of this film as well.Hansel & Gretel is not meant to be a serious retelling of the 1812 Brothers Grimm fairy tale. So if viewers take the negative reviews to heart, the film wont be nearly as much fun.

A hint of rosemary LAttitudes review Feb. 1, 2002 Sunset DinnersNo w only $15.95per person7 nights a week(except holidays)Must be seated by 5:15 pm silly, gory, absurd parody of the recent crop of vampire/werewolf/magicianoriented films, they might actually enjoy it. The movie was directed by Norwegian filmmaker Tommy Wirkola, best known for his Nazi zombie spoof, Dead Snow. This is his first big-budget Hollywood film and stars Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker, The Avengers), Gemma Arterton (Pirate Radio, Clash of the Titans), Famke Janssen (Golden Eye, Taken) and Peter Stormare (Minority Report, The Last Stand). The story is that Hansel and Gretel have grown up and are professional bounty hunters, specializing in hunting and killing witches. They have been called by the mayor to the small village of Augsberg, where children have been disappearing. Villagers suspect that witches are the culprits. The siblings arrive in the hamlet just in time to save a suspected witch from being burned alive and are immediately beset by the local pigheaded sheriff and a host of nasty witches. As the brother and sister look for clues, the imminent blood moon points to something really bad on the horizon. The film definitely has a tongue-in-cheek attitude, with just enough wry humor to cause a chuckle every now and then. Headlines in the news articles and scrapbooks are fun and viewers may find themselves wishing those scraps of paper stayed onscreen long enough to be read completely. And be warned: the blood and gore is graphic and plentiful. Apparently, Director Wirkola felt that if the story slowed down, all he had to do was throw in another creatively gruesome way to dispatch a witch. Its great, grisly fun but parents will definitely not want their small children to see this one. The acting is appropriately over the top, the weapons and special effects are great and the extensive variety of evillooking witches is a testament to the skill of the makeup department, Twilight Creations, which also worked on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. So while Hansel & Gretel:Witch Hunters may not be the best movie of the year (several new films are a bigger waste of time), with my tongue planted firmly in my cheek, I would feel confident calling Hansel & Gretel the best fairy tale/witch-hunting movie of the year...so far.Warning: Graphic blood and goreFrom Film,4B Folk icon plays Key West Feb. 9Folk music icon Noel Paul Stookey the Paul of Peter, Paul and Mary fame plays Saturday, Feb. 9, at Key Wests historic Casa Antigua, 314 Simonton St. Music From the Heart An Intimate Evening with Noel Paul Stookey, the performance will blend concert and conversation. Last year, in an interview with The Keynoter Stookey talked about the 1960s protest culture and how much the political landscape has changed in America.I dont know if its because of my age, or the complexity of the times, he said, but the issues do seem to be more complex so the answers are not quite as simple as they were in the 1960s.He got his start as a standup comic and MC while working his way through the University of Michigan. He moved to New York where he worked in a chemical factory by day and continued to get MC gigs in Greenwich Village clubs.His big break came a music promoter put him, Peter Yarrow and Mary Travers together for a folk music trio that opened at The Bitter End in New York. The trio toured widely over the next decade and were active in protest movements over the war and the push for civil rights. Peter, Paul and Mary performed at rallies with Dr. Martin Luther King in Birmingham, Alabama and Washington D.C. The group broke up in 1970 and each pursued separate careers. Stookeys first solo album included the The Wedding Song, which became a classic widely played at weddings for decades afterwards. Royalties from Wedding Song benefit the Public Domain Foundation, where nearly $2 million has been put toward charitable causes. Then, in 1978, the trio came back together for a benefit performance organized by Yarrow. That Hollywood Bowl reunion concert was so well received, they revived the partnership and continued to tour, performing nearly 50 concerts a year until Travers death in 2009. Tickets for Stookeys Feb. 9 concert cost $45. Seating is limited. The ticket includes a post-performance reception where Stookey will meet and converse with attendees.The Casa Antigua has a history all its own, serving as Ernest Hemingways first residence in Key West.
