The FBI has spoken with two City Council members, requested an interview with another and, according to several sources close to the situation, interviewed or attempted to interview numerous city staffers.Contacted Friday, City Attorney John Herin refused to comment on whether he sat in on FBI interviews with City Manager Roger Hernstadt and Planning Director George Garrett, or advised them not to sit for interviews.Hernstadt did not return three phone messages Thursday and Friday, while Garrett did not return several calls to his office and cell phone. Mayor Mike Cinque told the Keynoter the FBI interviewed him on Jan. 23, and that his personal attorney and Herin were there. Herin wanted to be there and he said it was a good idea for me to take my attorney along. The worst thing you can do is not take your attorneys advice, he said. Cinque declined to discuss specifics of the meeting, outside of the fact that it was mostly regarding murder-forhire suspect Dennis Zecca. Zecca, a part-owner of the Marathon Marina and Boatyard and a former U.S. Coast Guard Station Islamorada commander, was arrested Dec. 21 for what federal authorities say was an unsuccessful attempt to pay $20,000 or a kilo of cocaine for the murder of Marathon Realtor Bruce Schmitt. Cinque did confirm that what he discussed with the FBI were things that Bruce had said to them. Ill be honest: Everything they asked me was pretty much a matter of public record. There really wasnt much there, so I think they were just following up on people making a lot ofCouncil members confirm agents came calling; city attorney put out warningsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON AT PENN STATION,DREAMS OF THE KEYS Finally, some cohesiveness to fish rules?Rules for fishing Florida Keys waters baffle anglers and commercial crews like few other areas on Earth. In the Keys, regulations made by two separate federal agencies and a state commission collide at vague junctures out on the blue horizon.There are so many different jurisdictions at the state and federal levels, said Bill Kelly, executive director of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association. Throw in state parks, national parks, the [Florida Keys National Marine] sanctuary, special fishing zones.... Its reached a level of absurdity.Federal fishery managers take a stab at the quandary when the Joint Committee on South Florida Management Issues, a panel of fishery experts, holds its first meeting on the Internet.This is a situation thats been years in the making, said Bob Mahood, executive director of the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council. In the Keys, its like it can be legal to catch the fish on one side of U.S. 1 but illegal if you cross the road.The effort to resolve conflicting rules, bag limits and seasons (mostly on reef fish species like yellowtail snapper, mutton snapper and grouper) doesnt promise a new Keys-specific region with its own rules something long desired by local fishers.If they did that, it would be great, Islamorada charter captain Bruce Anderson saidPanel tackling confusing Keys regulationsFISHINGBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comSnowbird faces prison stretchADuck Key snowbird is facing a potential 1,000-year prison sentence following his conviction on 50 counts of federal mail fraud stemming from a scheme to rip off people through small-claims courts.Bernard Seidling, 61, who splits his time between the Middle Keys and Eau Claire, Wis., was convicted Dec. 26 in U.S. District Court in Madison, Wis. Sentencing is set for March 21 before Judge Barbara Crabb in Madison.The U.S. Attorneys Office for western Wisconsin explained Seidlings scheme, which ran from 2003 to 2009, thusly:Seidling filed suits in Wisconsin small-claims courts against individuals and corporations in which he lied about their addresses and attempts to serve them. He submitted false documents to convince the smallclaims courts that he had process servers attempt to serve the defendants when, in fact, those attempts either had not been made or, as Seidling knew, would be unsuccessful because he knew the defendants did not live at the addresses he had provided.In each of these lawsuits, Seidling usually claimed the maximum allowed of $5,000.... He hid filings of the lawsuits from the victims of his schemeSeidling guilty of 50 counts of mail fraudDUCK KEYKeynoter Staff SEIDLINGSee Fraud,2ASee Fishing,2ARealtor urged state to probe Cay ClubsIn the wake of the Securities and Exchange Commissions civil fraud charges filed against five Cay Clubs executives last week, one real estate agent near Clearwater says she pleaded with several state agencies backed with volumes of documentation for more than five years to investigate the development company to no avail. The agent shared documents she obtained that reveal the complex ways Cay Clubs founder Dave Clark and his colleagues, whom SEC investigators say ran a $300 million Ponzi scheme, set up more than 100 companies that lured more than 1,000 investors during the real estate boom in the earlyto mid-2000s.Clark, who ran Cay Clubs from Key Largo and now lives in the Cayman Islands, could not be reached for comment. His lawyer, Jeffrey Cox, did not return an e-mail with questions about Cay ClubsClearwater operations.The Realtor represented clients trying to sell units at the Clearwater Cay Club condominiums in the aftermath of Cay Clubsreal estate empire crumbling in 2008. The properties were cheaply renovated, the agent said, to resemble high-end Las Vegas resorts. Some investors paid more than $1 million for units that the Realtor said were worth about $550,000 during the height of the real estate boom. Other people paid about $800,000 for homes worth much less, even back then. In the end, most of the units went into foreclosure, she said. The Clearwater Cay Club consisted of 12 apartment buildings bought by Sunvest Resort Communities, out of Hallandale Beach, in August 2004. The buildings were called the Grand Venezia at Baywatch.Condo lawThe documents, the agent says, show how Cay Clubs companies may have violated state condominium laws by selling much of the landHer evidence apparently was pushed asideBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comIN THE COURTSSee Cay Clubs,2ASee FBI,3A

on which the condos were built to third parties for about $28 million. That land, under state law, belongs to the condominium unit owners, the agent said.All the condominiums at the Grand Venezia at Baywatch and other Cay Club communities were sold without the conveyance of land and improvement/amenities in direct conflict and violation of the residential condominium conversion application submitted and approved by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, the agent said.But Sandi Poreda, a spokeswoman with DBPR, the agency that approved the condo conversion, said it does not appear from any of the documents filed with her agency that any member of the condominium association owned any of the common areas except for the individual unitswater heater. She said if the declaration of condominium does not list what the common elements of the property are, the unit owners do not necessarily own them.In February 2010, these documents, some of which were found sitting in boxes next to Cay ClubsClearwater office dumpsters, were sent to several agencies, including the Florida Attorney Generals Office, the DPBR and the Florida Department of Financial Services. It is not clear if any of the agencies investigated.The documents also suggest Sunvest Resort Communities was always the owner of the Clearwater Cay Club from the time Sunvest bought the 24-acre property in August 2004 to at least 2006.Deception?Some investors were under the impression a company Clark set up called DC703 was the owner. DC703 actually leased the land from Sunvest, according to the documents reviewed by The Reporter But DC703 was listed as owner of the property in applications to the state for residential condominium conversion. In an Oct. 8, 2004, letter written by one of Clarks attorneys to the city of Clearwater, the attorney says DC703 intended to create a residential condominium in the city. And in an Oct. 27, 2004, affidavit signed by Dave Schwarz, Cay Clubs then-chief financial officer, Schwarz said the document was submitted to prove to the state that DC703 owned the land that was to be developed.E-mails sent to the Realtor in September 2009 by Rudolph Prinz, then-chief of DBPRs Bureau of Standards and Registration, defended DBPRs decision to approve the conversion. Poreda, the DBPR spokeswoman, said ownership would not change our acceptance of the filing, since DC703 had an interest to purchase the land the condominium was developed on.Sunvest was the financial backer of the more than 2,000 units and 900 boat slips Cay Clubs owned in the Keys, which were never renovated as promised to investors.Clark and Schwarz launched Cay Clubs in 2004 and operated it from Clarks then home in Key Largo, the agency said. The venture eventually encompassed a web of more than 100 companies and 150 bank accounts. Schwarz is also named in last months SEC complaint as one of the five executives investigators allege to have swindled investors while enriching themselves.One of the most appealing parts of the sales pitch was the so-called leaseback provision, where investors would buy condo units and Cay Clubs would rent them back for an approximate two-year period. This, according to the sales pitch, would allow investors to cover their mortgage for the initial two-year period while the units were renovated to be sold at a high rate of return.But according to the SECs complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Miami, 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.

Right now, we basically have no representation.The federal South Atlantic Council covers ocean waters from Key West to North Carolinas Virginia border. The Gulf of Mexico Council oversees from Key West to Texas.You cant ask people in North Carolina about fishing the Keys, Islamorada charter captain Steve Leopold said. Its subtropical here, which is totally different, even from Miami. The agenda item for the Feb. 25 session includes discussion on Establishing a special management unit that allows for consistent state/federal fishery regulations across the South Florida area. Another topic is Allocation of fisheries landings in Monroe County. The South Florida committee lists five members each from the Gulf Council and South Atlantic Council. It includes Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission managers Jessica McCawley and Martha Bademan, along with south Miami-Dade businessman John Sanchez, a former Keys commercial fishing representative. Mahood said rather than working to make a Keys-specific region, the group will focus on particular fisheries with an eye on creating management plans acceptable to both councils and the state. Its worked for mackerel and spiny lobster, Mahood said. Its about trying to make life easier for fishermen and managers. Leopold said a regional council could take action on species like blackfin tuna, now unregulated. There are no bag limits or size limits on blackfin tuna and catches are way down, he said. They need to regulate that fish today. But since they dont catch blackfin north of Florida, its no big deal to them. Anderson said current closed winter seasons on grouper species help MidAtlantic states in their summer seasons, but harm Keys boats at a time when anglers and fish are here. Kelly said years of advocating for a Florida-specific management council went nowhere. At this point, it aint going to happen, he said. Theres not enough money.

Once he obtained these fraudulent default judgments, he filed them in the county where the victims actually lived or owned property and also used them to attempt to file wage garnishments against the victims and the victims property.The U.S. Attorneys Office says they were tipped to the scheme from one of the victims who couldnt understand why his salary was being garnished. That led to the larger investigation. Seidling filed for bankruptcy in U.S. District Court in Miami on April 18, 2011, and listed his address as 132 N. Indies Drive, Duck Key. That property, which is owned by a Wisconsin partnership, is assessed at $449,218. Another Duck Key property just down the road at 152 N. Indies lists Christine Seidling Bernards current or former wife as the owner. Its assessed at $1.03 million and has a homestead exemption tied to it, according to the Monroe County Property Appraisers Office. Prosecutors say Bernard Seidling acknowledged he deceived small-claims courts, clerks of court and process servers, but he maintained he did not deceive the actual victims of his scheme to defraud and therefore could not be found guilty. However, Crabb disagreed and convicted him in a non-jury trial. Each conviction is punishable by up to 20 years in prison.Victim tipped the fedsFrom Fraud,1ATowernamed forCabanas?KEY WESTThe Key West City Commission on Tuesday amended a request to the Monroe County Commission asking that the Key West International Airport control tower be named after deceased local aviator Freddy Cabanas. At first, commissioners considered asking the County Commission, which overseas the airport, to name part of or the entire airfield after Cabanas, who died Jan. 15 in a biplane crash near Cozumel, Mexico.Meeting Tuesday, city commissioners heard from Mimi Grantham, the daughter of Sonny and Merili McCoy, the namesakes of the airports McCoy Terminal Complex.Something should be named after Freddy, Grantham said, but I would not like to see a name removed. Merili was a city commissioner while Sonny was a Key West mayor and, later a county commissioner. Commissioner Billy Wardlow, who sponsored the name request, said, There was no intention of ever changing the name. There was no disrespect. That led to an amendment singling out the tower for possible naming. Commissioner Teri Johnston was the lone vote of dissent. Cabanas, 60, operated a biplane tour business from Key West International since 1987. The County Commission meets Feb. 20 at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center in Key Largo. A meeting agenda isnt out yet so its not known if the Cabanas question will be addressed at that meeting.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com

The majority of the Monroe County Commission appears ready to wash its hands of the decades-long battle over electrifying No Name Key. Mayor George Neugent, along with commissioners David Rice and Danny Kolhage, told the Keynoter they wont support appealing to the state Supreme Court Wednesdays Third District Court of Appeal opinion over No Name power. The court ruled the state Public Service Commission not local courts has jurisdiction over allowing commercial electricity on the 1,000-acre island. Currently, the 43 homeowners are powered by solar and generators. The opinion came about from a complaint No Name resident Bob Reynolds filed with the PSC. He contended that agency has jurisdiction while the county claimed Circuit Court Judge Audlin had the jurisdiction because the county had sought a declaratory judgment ruling in Circuit Court to stop the commercial electrification.In a Jan. 31, 2011, ruling, Audlin agreed with Reynolds. No Name resident Alicia Putney, the most vocal antielectricity No Name resident, appealed to the Third DCA.She lost Wednesday and that could be the final nail in the coffin for those who dont want commercial power on No Name. The statutory authority granted to the PSC would be eviscerated if initially subject to local governmental regulation and Circuit Court injunctions of the kind sought by Monroe County in the case at hand, the court wrote. The opinion also says Keys Energy Services, the Lower Keys power company that has already installed poles and activated them, is subject to the PSCs statutory power over all electrical utilities and any territorial disputes over service areas. County Attorney Bob Shillinger said county staff would discuss options with the commission during its Feb. 20 meeting in Key Largo. Any appeal would be heard before the Florida Supreme Court. Neugent said hes been involved with the issue since his first year on the commission in 1998. He originally supported leaving the island as is, but said dynamics have changed there over the years. He said that at one point, he demanded a notarized affidavit supporting electricity from the 32 of 43 No Name homeowners who said they want to be connected to the grid.He said the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service then told him that electrical lines would have no negative impact to the habitat or the deer.Game over?Its pretty clear to me this will not go to the Supreme Court on my vote. How can we take the position that were going to fight this in court? Neugent said. Rice said he is not surprised at all by the Third DCAs decision, and that it appears clear how the PSC will rule on the matter.We really have no idea when theyre going to hear it, although I will be shocked if the PSC does not come down on the side of utilities, he said.Rice added that the county is splitting hairs out there with some of the positions were taking in regards to a separate lawsuit the county filed accusing Keys Energy Services of trespassing on county aerial easements. Weve gone virtually to the point of the absurd, he said. Were worried about a power line, three feet of which goes across our property ... in the air.Andy Tobin, an attorney for the No Name Key Property Owners Association, said he agrees with Rice and that its time for the county to move on.If the county now has clarity, where they were unsure, then the case will be resolved and everyone can march down to the Building Department to hook up to the poles that have been sitting there since July. It doesnt make sense for this battle to continue, he said. Kolhage said the commission still has to discuss the case with county legal staff but that he is not in favor of appealing this decision.Commissioner Heather Carruthers told the Keynoter she has long-range concerns over the PSCs ability to allow utilities in a Coastal Barrier Resource System area or Area of Critical State Concern.Congress enacted the Coastal Barrier Resources Act in 1982 to protect coastal habitats, and part of No Name not the entire island is included. The entire Keys are an Area of Critical State Concern because of their sensitive environment, meaning virtually all development decisions are made by state officials in Tallahassee.Commissioner Sylvia Murphy is the lone board member to be outspoken against commercial electricity on No Name Key. Shes long held that position and told the Keynoter the people doing this to No Name Key are very wrong. I see no reason for anyone to purchase something on No Name Key with the expectation of having lights and water unless they expected to buy cheap and sell at a much higher price. I kind of resent that attitude, but it will be what it will be, she said.Issues pendingAssistant County Attorney Derek Howard pointed out that the Third DCAopinion is far from a final decision on the matter of electrifying No Name.The Third DCAdidnt actually make any decision on the merits of the countys position that utilities on No Name Key are prohibited, he said. What they said is that this is an issue that should go before the PSC. This notion that theres been a decision, that the county is prohibited from maintaining its no electrification of No Name Key policy, is a misunderstanding.Cynthia Muir, director of consumer assistance and outreach for the PSC, told the Keynoter it would most likely be about two weeks before any dates are set to consider the No Name issue. crazy accusations. They feel because of circumstances, they had to check up on it, Cinque said.Councilman Dick Ramsay told the Keynoter he was interviewed by the feds roughly a month ago, shortly after Zeccas arrest. He said he had no attorney present, and declined to elaborate on the conversation because its part of an ongoing investigation. Councilwoman Ginger Snead said the FBI requested an interview shortly after Zeccas arrest, but that her call back to the agency was never returned. They called me again and I had my attorney call ... and apparently he dealt with it because I never heard from them again, she said. Councilmen Chris Bull and Rich Keating told the Keynoter theyve not been contacted for interviews. But Bull confirmed Herin made calls advising officials of the FBIs investigation. I got a call from John Herin letting people know that they apparently were calling everybody and gave us legal advice, so I just ... played the waiting game and no one called, Bull said.Alikely line of inquiry given Schmitt being the impetus is the former Overseas Liquor & Lounge near mile marker 49 bayside. The estate of Joseph Ardolino owns it.Schmitt, a Realtor whose family owns numerous properties and the local Coldwell Banker franchise, has been outspoken in criticizing the citys efforts to deny a package store there based on a 2007 law that bans liquor sales at businesses within 1,500 feet of a school, church or other establishment selling liquor.In an April 24 order, Monroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlin reversed a City Council decision denying the estate the right to sell liquor there. The city almost immediately filed a motion for rehearing and/or clarification of Audlins order. The issue is pending.Schmitt believes Marathon Liquor & Deli owner Ralph Lucignano, who sits on the citys advisory Planning Commission, played a significant role in the 2007 laws passage.The Schmitt family owns the property on which Publix and the Walgreens at mile marker 50 were built. Both businesses were denied the ability to sell liquor because of the 1,500-foot rule. Lucignano did not return a call for comment.Richard Warner, attorney for the Ardolino estate, told the Keynoter hes in the process of filing suit on that whole subject matter, in the big picture.The estate has been injured by what we consider to be improper procedures by the city. The court will determine what will happen, he said. Warner did say that he feels the city is not kidding the people of Marathon with its handling of the Overseas building.The city went unusually to the position of trying to stop us. I think everyone on the street knows why, but we have to wait until the evidence comes in, he said, declining to elaborate further.Zecca faces federal charges of murder for hire, conspiracy to possess and attempt to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, and transfer of a firearm to a convicted felon. The cocaine counts stem from a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration investigation out of which the alleged plot to kill Schmitt was hatched. Federal authorities say Schmitt was not involved in the drug case. Zecca pleaded not guilty on Jan. 14 and is being held without bond at the Monroe County Detention Center on Stock Island.

The Key West City Commission is considering getting rid of one of the last vestiges of the days when cell phones didnt exist: Pay phones.At the commissioners meeting Tuesday, City Manager Bob Vitas, who had been asked to look into the issue by Commissioner Jimmy Weekley, said a contract with First American Telecommunications to operate 22 pay phones scattered around city streets had expired.Will we continue to keep these phones? he asked. Were going to take a close look at their use. If theres a place theyre being heavily used, they would probably remain, but if there are places theyre not being used, its just another obstruction in the right of way we might consider removing. First American has held the pay-phone contract, worth around $6,000 per year, since 2003, when Bell South pulled out of the market. At the time, there were around 100 pay phones on city streets. Now the majority of the phones are on Duval Street and its cross streets, and on North and South Roosevelt boulevards. The issue was last broached in 2008 when commissioners were similarly poised to get rid of the phones. But First American made the case that in the event of a natural disaster like a hurricane, cell phones will often fail, making pay phones the only line of communication available. There was a period of time when the call revenue for the company had a spike: Hurricane Wilma in 2005.

Were aware that the retirement system needs to be tweaked, County Administrator Roman Gastesi said Thursday. Were monitoring the [Florida Legislature] bills closely to see how they would affect Monroe Countys system. AFlorida House subcommittee on Thursday passed a bill that would place all new state workers and likely those in Monroe County enrolled in the Florida Retirement System into a 401(a) defined-contribution plan, which is similar to 401(k) plans. The bill still needs to pass both houses of the Legislature, which does not convene for its two-month session until March 5.Supporters of the proposal say it will stabilize future retirement costs at a time that the current pension plan is relatively sound and can support current employees and retirees, the News Service of Florida reported. But opponents argued that the proposal could destabilize the pension plan by removing the flow of funding that would come from new members.The Florida Retirement System is considered to be financially sound, raising questions from opponents about why the change from a defined-benefit system is needed. This is a just cost-shift, said state Rep. Irv Slosberg (D-Boca Raton). Find someone elses pocket to pick. Leave our workers alone.Legislative leaders in the Republican-controlled Legislature reiterated that its time for the state to shore up its own retirement system by shifting from a traditional pension plan to one more comparable to those in the private sector, the News Service reported.Even some Republican supporters of the committee bill say they want more information on the effect of the changes before a final decision.There are many things in the works, Gastesi said. New workers could be required to go into the 401(a) plan. Current workers could be offered some type of hybrid system.Information on the number of Monroe County workers enrolled in the Florida Retirement System was not available at press time. But Gastesi said payments from Monroe County to the state system are set at a level intended to keep the system solvent.Local plansAnother bill introduced for the upcoming Legislature tells local governments that the state will not provide a bail-out to local governments that dont adequately fund their own retirement plans. The bill, SB 534, also would mandate that local governments with their own pension plans provide easily understood information to workers and taxpayers on the financial health of their retirement systems. One study indicates that more than half of Floridas local government pension plans are funded below the level needed to sustain the system in future years.Municipalities like Key West and Marathon have their own individually designed systems. Those may be further split into separate plans for general employees, and those for workers, like police and firefighters, covered by union contracts.Marathons 30 general employees have a definedcontribution plan into which the employees pay, City Manager Roger Hernstadt said. Thats a pay-as-you-go system so its never going to be underfunded, he said. The 25 Marathon firefighters are covered by a contract calling for a definedbenefit plan. That calls for specified payments so it is not underfunded, he said.Lawmakers are tweaking the proposalSTATE LEGISLATURECity may be ready to hang upContract for pay phones has expiredBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYIn an age when cell phones have become ubiquitous,pay phones like this one at Duval and Front streets in Key West see minimal use.The City Commission is considering getting rid of pay phones.By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com CALLCLASSIFIEDS743-5551

Property insurance rates across the state could shoot up much faster beginning next year under a massive new proposal being drafted in the Florida Legislature. The proposal, released in draft form Wednesday, shows that lawmakersattempts to reform Citizens Property Insurance Corp. could have costly repercussions for millions of property owners. Weve all seen that artificially suppressing rates is a recipe for disaster, said Senate Banking and Insurance Committee Chair David Simmons (RAltamonte Springs). When you cause a private company to not be able to make a profit, what do they do? They do what we have seen. They have a flight from the state of Florida. Simmons disputed the claim that the proposal would lead to higher rates and said there would likely be several amendments to address any concerns.The proposal would give insurance companies more latitude to raise premiums faster and weaken their top competition Citizens by forcing it to charge higher prices.One measure in the 34page bill is particularly telling: It changes a legal mandate that insurance in Florida be affordable, adding new language requiring premium prices to reflect the risks covered. It also mandates that Citizens charge prices that are higher than whats available in the private market. Because the proposal could have a multibilliondollar pocketbook impact on millions of homeowners in coming years, it is likely to face opposition from lawmakers in South Florida and the Tampa Bay area, where insurance costs are highest. Any rate increases engendered by the bill would likely hit homeowners in 2014, right as campaigns for primary and general elections in the Legislature heat up. Throughout his governorship, Gov. Rick Scott has steered clear of making specific proposals for property insurance reform, while simultaneously pushing Citizensboard to aggressively shrink the company. The boards actions have led to hundreds of millions of dollars in price hikes and coverage reductions. Scott has expressed concern that Citizens is undercutting the private market with its rates and could leave taxpayers liable to assessments after a once-in-a-lifetime storm.The new proposal seeks to address that concern, along with several others. It includes the following provisions:Citizens must charge rates that are higher than average rates in the private market.Insurance companies may use an insurance inflation factor to raise premiums faster than currently allowed by law.Insurance companies, including Citizens, may charge homeowners additional fees to help cover the cost of backup insurance.Insurance companies can charge rates that are higher than what regulators traditionally allow if homeowners agree to the higher charges.It would also become more difficult to join Citizens under the new provision. Homes valued above $300,000, and properties that are not owner-occupied such as the voluminous vacation rentals in the Keys would no longer be eligible for state-run insurance. Homeowners, who currently can stay in Citizens indefinitely once they qualify, would have to re-qualify on an annual basis under the bill. If a private insurer offered coverage rates within 15 percent of Citizensprices, the homeowner would be kicked out of Citizens. Citizens has 1.3 million policyholders, making up about 23 percent of the market in Florida.

Thats what the Key West City Commission decided Tuesday, selecting Bert Benders firm over two others vying for the anticipated two-year, $20 million-plus historic rebuild. Bender was selected over William P. Horn Architects, also of Key West, and Rodriguez and Quiroga of Coral Gables. Bender stressed his experience with similar projects designed to preserve historic structural elements while integrating modern technology and layout, specifically pointing to the conversion of the Gato Cigar Factory into Monroe County governments headquarters and a 10-year rehab of the Custom House that houses the Key West Art and Historical Society, which he called the crown jewel of Key West. Bender is working on the project with Miami-based architecture firm MCHarry Associates. Were a strong local team, he told commissioners. Weve established a reputation for doing exactly this type of project. Bender was chosen in a 52 vote with commissioners Billy Wardlow and Tony Yaniz opting for Horn.He has a passion to restore that building, Mayor Craig Cates said of Bender. Even without getting any pay for it, he has been there supporting this. You cant buy that; you cant pay for that. Thats something thats coming from within him.Commissioner Mark Rossi stressed to city staff he doesnt want to see any change orders which cost money on the project, and wants the city to hire an independent construction manager to monitor progress.Thats a prerequisite here for me, Rossi said. Cost overruns are not going to be something here that this dais is going to tolerate. Dont be coming to us with change orders. Im going to put you on the spot right now. I cant promise you there wont be a change order, City Manager Bob Vitas responded. They need to be minimal. You dont want cost overruns. There might be change orders but as a routine, its not going to happen.

Peter, Maggie Wassylenko Key WestSecretary of state comes around on early voting even as senator wants to hamstring supervisorsFloridas black eye from November voting snafus hasnt altogether disappeared. And if some state lawmakers have their way, expect another shiner this year. On the heels of restricting early voting which contributed to hours-long delays in some jurisdictions lawmakers are talking about pressuring county elections officials to toe the party (i.e. GOP) line. State Sen. Miguel Diaz de la Portilla (R-Miami) told a Senate committee hearing this week that county election supervisors should follow directives issued by the secretary of state. Failing to do so, he said, should result in removal by the governor. This strikes pretty close to home in the Keys, where then-Monroe County Elections Supervisor Harry Sawyer won national attention for his principled stand against state directives to reduce early voting days. Monroe County is one of five Florida counties where any change to election law including the reduced voting window triggers a U.S. Department of Justice review because of past discrimination against minority voters. Because the Justice Department had not precleared Floridas shortened window, Sawyer vowed to keep a 14-day window open for Keys voters rather than the states preferred eight-day window. Election supervisors in the other four pre-clearance counties went along with Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner. Sawyers stand brought a public rebuke from Gov. Rick Scott, who said he would take all necessary and appropriate action to ensure that the laws are faithfully executed.... I honestly do take that as a threat, Sawyer said last August. Theyre threatening to remove me. This affects the integrity of the elections coming up, it affects our staff and it affects my family. As it turned out, Sawyer, who retired following the election, was proven right on Election Day when long lines and other problems gave Florida yet another black eye, affirming our reputation for botching highturnout presidential elections. In a touch of irony, Detzner told a House Ethics panel this week that a return to 14 days for early voting is the right thing to do. In a 12-page report, he recommended the Legislature look at extending the number of early voting days and expanding the number of early voting sites. The bottom line is: Voter confidence must be restored, Detzner said. If his recommendations survive the legislative committee process, perhaps Florida has a chance to avoid yet another black eye like the one de la Portilla wants to deliver from the far right. In the 2012 election, 4.7 million Floridians voted early or absentee thats 56 percent of the 8.4 million votes cast. Along with Detzners recommendations, that should persuade even the most truculent lawmakers to listen to the people, not to partisan ideologues like de la Portilla.I started interning for Troma Entertainment in May 2012. Troma Entertainment is one of the longestrunning independent film studios, bringing films like The Toxic Avenger, Redneck Zombies and Rabid Grannies to the masses for almost 40 years. My first few weeks consisted of doing Beta cam tape inventory, taking out trash and cleaning toilets. Then it was announced that a remake/sequel to the Troma classic Class of Nuke Em High was going to go into production, Return to Nuke Em High. Almost immediately, the office was swept up into pre-production. Most of the gained experience in pre-production came with casting. Our casting director, Chelsea Holland, kept us very much involved. Around mid-July, it was announced we would be shooting in the Niagara Falls/Buffalo area of New York. Without further delay, I took a Greyhound bus with another intern to the production office. This is where the story switches from a great interning experience to the greatest adventure of my life. I went into this production expecting to clean toilets, take out trash, get coffee and mop up fake blood. Within a couple weeks, I was brought into the office of the producer, Justin Martell, and asked to head the art department.The art department crew, consisting of Pat Klouman, Dan Levay and T.J Smith, (the three hardest-working people I know) and I, decorated the sets and built and collected all the props. We also did anything else we were thrown at while somehow still being responsible for mopping up the fake blood and slime. We worked countless hours through sleepless nights for this film.We slept on the floor, ate almost exclusively from 7-Eleven, shared successes and hardships, got cheered and yelled at and we would all do it again for the sake of independent film. I cant begin to describe what I learned from working on this movie, about filmmaking and about life in general.Return to Nuke Em High is set to be released in the spring. And Troma Entertainment wants to premier it at the Cannes Film Festival in France. Not only that, but Troma wants to make a documentary about how to market and distribute independent movies in a world thats run by big corporations. I want to reach out to my hometown community to help in our fundraiser for this project.If there is any place in the world that knows what it feels like to be edged out by the big guy, its Islamorada. This documentary is about showing that anyone can make a movie if he or she puts his or her mind to it. Its about showing that anyone can do anything if he or she puts his or her mind to it. Thats something I learned from growing up in the Keys.Thats something I learned from my community Craig Johnson in Odyssey of the Mind, Mrs. Brown at Plantation Key School, Mr. Ellsworth at Coral Shores, the Brewers, the Riehls, my family, your family, Dave Feder, everyone in the Regs, from watching thousands of movies at Tavernier Towne, the Vaughns and the Vaughans, the Richards, everybody on Pippin Drive, and everybody who has ever seen the Coral Shores Hurricanes win a football game. At the end of the day, the message is about following your dreams. So can you help us? Ive never been to France before; I hear its nice in May.

Big Brotherin classroom?The Monroe County School Districts tech department has the ability to watch and listen to classroom teachers through computer software, and School Board member John Dick wants to know why. Citing Orwellian overtones, Dick plans to raise the issue at a School Board workshop set for Tuesday beginning at 3 p.m. at Marathon High School. Dick said he started looking into the matter when he received complaints from teachers and that district officials initially denied having the monitoring capabilities, then reversed. The district said to me they could not remotely monitor, Dick said. Personnel told me they thought people were monitoring them and were nervous. I was told that was impossible. But it turns out the district spends around $7,000 per year on the SchoolVue software, and has for more than a decade. The program has two parts, client and tutor. The idea, which Dick said was completely proper, is to give teachers the client application so they can monitor students who have the tutor application and keep up with their studentscomputer-based course work. But aside from limited instances at Key Largo School, Dick said some 250 teachers have the tutor program they can be watched whereas the client monitoring software is accessible by eight technicians working in the Information Technology department. They can listen in without anybody knowing, Dick said. Why would that be? They never told people and to me thats an intrusion. Michael Kinneer, the districts director of operations and planning, said the remote access is sometimes used to fix classroom computers. Some techs find it useful for connecting for support services, Kinneer said, adding that the system allows access to more than one computer at a time. Still, Dick said if the system has no classroom utility, why does the district keep paying? It costs money so if theyre not using it, lets get rid of it. He also said teachers with whom he has spoken complain that the elaborate software slows down other computer functions and eats up time that could otherwise be spent on instruction.There are problems with this and the district is not doing the right thing, he said, adding he wants specific answers next Tuesday, including how and why only some teachers have the software.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Slowly, FEMAlist is dwindlingWorking through a federal and local bureaucratic tangle, Florida Keys homeowners are slowly being removed from a list of properties barred from receiving federally subsidized flood insurance.A2010 settlement of a lawsuit alleging that allowing flood insurance on endangered-species habitat violates the Endangered Species Act essentially placed some 55,000 countywide properties on a list prohibiting Federal Emergency Management Agency insurance.To be removed, homeowners go through a process that associates one of nine endangered species with specific types of habitat grasslands, hammocks, mangrove, for instance and document that their property is free of the protected critters.The animals that sparked the 1990 lawsuit are the eastern Indigo snake, Key deer, Key Largo cotton mouse, Key Largo woodrat, Key tree cactus, Lower Keys marsh rabbit, Schaus swallowtail butterfly, silver rice rate and Stock Island tree snail.Wednesday, the Key West Planning Department began sending notices to around 1,700 Key West property owners saying their homes, businesses and lots were erroneously placed on the list. In the Middle Keys, Marathon has around 2,000 parcels on the list, although Planning Director George Garrett said that number is a little misleading. The three species of concern in Marathon are the snake, cactus and snail, but Garrett said its well documented that those arent present in the city. We really thought it less a problem, he said What it gets down to is as long as people do what is required within the confines of the settlement agreement, theyre going to be able to build on their property and get flood insurance. That amounts to a habitat assessment that Garrett noted has been required by Monroe County law since 1986, predating both the 1990 lawsuit and 1999 incorporation of Marathon. In June, Monroe County government set up a permit referral process for the unincorporated area, expected to cost $200,000 per year, that follows a similar process as Marathons, just on a larger scale.The original lawsuit was brought by the National Wildlife Federation, Florida Wildlife Federation and Defenders of Wildlife against FEMAand the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in an attempt to compel FEMAto consult with Fish and Wildlife over issuing flood insurance on land that endangered species might occupy.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comDEVELOPMENT

Collectors Corner owner Stan Haines is handing over the reins after more than 18 years at the helm of the Marathon business. Key Colony residents Jason Long and Ann Nash took over as owners on Jan. 31, but Nash has been learning the ropes since the beginning of December. Collectors Corner makes trophies and puts company and event logos on shirts, hats, banners and the like. It also sells memorabilia. Jason and Ann showed an interest in the business and I think theyre the perfect people to take it to the next level. I couldnt be happier for two nice young people to take what Ive done and make it better, Haines said. Nash helps Long run his charter fishing business and has other bookkeeping-type positions, but said the couple jumped at the opportunity to go into business for themselves.I was looking for something to do for myself and I thought it would a fun thing, she said. Ive always done bookkeeping but I wanted something I could own. It came about and we said OK.Nash has been busy making trophies, as well as learning engraving, embroidery and all the other aspects of the business. Im loving it ... and we have fabulous employees that I get to inherit, she said, referring to graphic designer Ryan Schraffenberger and embroiderer Therese Grocki. While fishing keeps Long busy most of the time, Nash says hell be easy to find on windy days. If hes not fishing, hell be building trophies. Thats my plans for him, she said.Collectors Corner has steadily evolved since opening on Aug. 1, 1994. Haines originally got into the business selling baseball cards in New Jersey. Hed taken on memorabilia and trophy-making by the time Collectors Corner relocated to the Keys.The next step was promotional products, because it involved putting peoples name on things. In 2007, we started embroidery and silk-screening T-shirts, Haines said.Schraffenberger came on board in 2009 and brought the business more up to date, establishing Collectors Corners website,www.Put YourNameOnAnything .com.Hainesaffinity for local politics is also well known; he provides products for numerous candidates each election cycle and even gets involved running campaigns. It became a little bit of a political hub, he said. Haines says hes staying on at Collectors Corner through at least the end of April and that he has no plans after that. I have no remorse at all, he said. Im unbelievable grateful for all the people in the Keys that were my customers over the years. Nothing is better than making a living doing what you love, and I loved every minute of it.

Conchs end CanesseasonJunior guard Daniel Thompson scored a seasonhigh 32 points and the Key West High School basketball team survived the latest suspension of its top inside player to defeat Coral Shores, 6153, in a District 16-4Atournament semifinal game Wednesday night at Gulliver Prep in Miami. The victory the Conchsfifth in a row secured a spot in the state playoffs for the second consecutive season under coach Anton Lopez. Key West must defeat Gulliver in the title game tonight to get a home regional game Tuesday night. If Key West loses, it will open the regional playoffs on the road.Coral Shoresseason ended with a 7-12 record. The Conchs used a fullcourt press and hit big shots to overtake the Hurricanes, who held the lead into the fourth quarter. Elliott Valdez hits two crucial three-point shots late in the game and Daniel Thompson was phenomenal, Lopez said. I give Key West a great deal of credit for their effort, Coral Shores coach Bruce Teachey said. I felt we had control of the game going into the fourth quarter up 10 points. However, Key West pressured us with a full court [press] that we could not overcome, he said. I used all my timeouts in a period of four minutes to stop the momentum but we couldnt turn it around. Key West went into the game having won its last four games since the reinstatement of the 6-foot-5 Anthony Rice, who missed most of the regular season after being arrested in September in the theft of electronics from school band members. Disciplinary out two weeks, athletic director Neda Preston said Thursday of the latest suspension. Sources said Rice had not complied with court-ordered conditions of his probation. My whole season has been like that, said Lopez, whose son, JeQuan, has not played at all after being involved in the same theft. Its a big blow, he said of losing Rice. I told theKey West moving on in districtBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorPREP BASKETBALL MARATHON SOCCERLandry off to StetsonMarathon High Schools Katie Landry has experienced some major ups and downs in her six years as a standout Dolphins soccer player.The outgoing senior hopes it goes much smoother this fall when she sets foot on the campus at Division I Stetson University in DeLand, near Daytona Beach. Landry inked her national letter of intent this week to play soccer for the Atlantic Sun Conference program. She did so in true Keys fashion, mailing a coconut with the word Stetson written on it, along with yes and no boxes and a checked yes. She sent the letter for good measure, too. Landry will begin her college career under a new regime, as Julie Orlowski resigned unexpectedly on Jan. 31 after 12 seasons at the helm of the Hatters. Last week on Friday, my club coach called my dad and told him what happened. He told me and I was more in shock than anything. I talked to some of the players and some didnt agree with what she was doing anyway ... so theyre handling it really well, Landry said. Landry was part of a talented crop of young players around 2007 that helped turn the Marathon girls program into a quality one. She was a seventh-grader at the time. The Dolphins have done well over the years, but never got over the hump to win a District 16-1Atitle over stiff Miami-area competition like Palmer Trinity and Westminster Christian schools. That was until this season, when the girls captured the schools first-ever district title and went on a tear in the state playoffs that grabbed the city of Marathons collective attention.That made this season bittersweet for Landry, who suffered a torn right anterior cruciate ligament this summer and was forced her to sit out her final season as a Dolphin. She watched from the sideline as her longtime teammates made their dream run to the state Class-1AFinal Four. It was like a doubleedged sword because I was so happy for them, but it stunk I couldnt play, she said.But unlike her club play,Soccer stars been slowed by injuriesBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comKeynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYKatie Landry signs a letter of intent Thursday to play soccer at Division I Stetson University in DeLand,near Daytona Beach.Her father Lynn,mother Freida and brother Seth,a Marathon High freshman,join her. ISLAND CHRISTIAN HOOPSCalusa grounds the EaglesIsland Christian Schools Eagles endured a season-ending lesson Tuesday in what it takes to compete in South Floridas basketball playoffs.The Eagles were decisively stopped by Calusa Prep, 71-34, in the District 16-2Asemifinal played at the ICS Family Life Center.Were not where we need to be, ICS coach Marcus Martin said. We missed a lot of layups and didnt box out. It wasnt a sharp week in practice and it showed.Calusas Colts (13-13) used a height advantage and sharp outside shooting to roll to a 39-14 lead at halftime, and held the Eagles to single-digit scoring in three of the four quarters. Even when ICS guard Shaka Smith drilled two 3pointers to lead the Eagles to a 15-point surge in the third, the Colts tossed answered with 23 points. Dylan Kling added nine points for ICS, and Jeremy Dorn scored five. Chris OBerry scored his four points in the third-quarter run. Dylan Ayres, who closed his Eagle hoop career, and guard Bernye Estevez each had a bucket.

The Dolphins fell behind 18-3 after one quarter and failed to close the gap despite playing better the remainder of the game. We played OK the last three quarters, but that first quarter did us in. We dont give up, but when you dont make shots its hard to get back in the game, coach Kevin Freeman. Freeman said the Dolphins, whove dealt with a significant size disadvantage against almost every opponent this season, struggled to box out against the Patriots. Marathon (2-18) also struggled from the freethrow line.The Dolphins played Florida Christian even in the second quarter, 16-16, thanks in large part to the play of guard Shemar Fantroy.Shemar played excellent defense that quarter. He had two steals in the second that led to lay-ups and scored seven points in the quarter, Freeman said. Reserve guard Damian Chavez played well in the second half, scoring all of his 12 points after the break. But the deficit grew to 45-25 after the third quarter. Chavez led the Dolphins with 12 points, while Fantroy has four rebounds and three steals along with his seven points. Cooper Chaplin had six points and three rebounds. Freeman said despite the disappointing win-loss totals, hes never had a harder-working group. Our two wins we got were good wins for us, but it was a tough year, he said. We played some really tough teams. With the group of kids I had, from top to bottom, they were the hardest working team I ever had. No problems whatsoever.

Off-season rust and missing two of its top three singles players added up to a Marathon High School boys tennis loss in Tuesdays season opener against International Studies Charter School in Miami. No. 5 singles player Brody Harmon notched the Dolphinsonly singles win, 8-3, while the No. 1 doubles team of Riley Durkin and Jake Coldren won their match, 8-6. Brody Harmon had a successful varsity debut at the No. 5 position with the teams only singles win. Riley and Jake were reunited from two years ago and finished strong to win their doubles match. I saw a couple of good things, and we now have a list of what we need to work on in practice, coach Chris Bull said. Overall, the Dolphins lost the match 2-5. Lack of match experience in the off-season was apparent. We will definitely be playing our way into the season, Bull said. Missing Tuesday were last seasons No. 1 singles player, Vincenzo Massaro, and No. 3 player Emilio Alvear, who both suffered preseason injuries. Bull said they will be back next week. Durkin lost the No. 1 singles match, 3-8, to Internationals Renato Smith. Coldren, Jamine Guo and Cory Benton fell in the Nos. 2-4 singles matches. Guo and Benton dropped the No. 2 doubles match, 4-8. Tuesdays match was boys only, as International does not field a girls tennis team. Thats a good thing for the Dolphins, since Bull and assistant Cindy Durkin were busy coaching the Marathon girls soccer team to a state Class-1AFinal Four playoff appearance. high school soccer was more for fun and to keep me active, Landry said. Thats not hubris talking; its common knowledge high school players gain infinitely more exposure through club play. Landry got started with club play as a middle-schooler, where she made a name for herself as a goalie. She then moved to defense, and eventually the center-midfielder position she played for the Dolphins.Club soccer led Landry to attend a national soccer camp and a girls soccer showcase before her junior year that put her on college coachesradar. She eventually visited schools in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama and Louisiana before deciding to stay closer to home.Junior year we took a huge trip and when it was all said and done, I wanted to stay in Florida. It came down to Troy [University in Alabama] and Stetson, but I clicked with Orlowski better as a coach, Landry said.Along the way, Landry endured a left ACLtear as a freshman that caused her to miss significant playing time. Shes still recovering from the right ACLtear, even participating in a pilot back to sports program at Miami Childrens Hospital for players whove suffered that injury.Landry said she plans to be ready to go when the Hatterspreseason program ramps up on Aug. 5, and that a new coaching staff could be a blessing in disguise. I know once Im healthy and 100 percent, I have a good shot at playing my freshman year. Im really excited theres a new coach because everyones going to be trying their hardest for a starting position, she said.Stetson finished the 201213 season with a 3-13-1 record. Orlowski was 126-15323 at Stetson, including an appearance in the 2006 conference championship game.Club play dominatedFrom Landry,1B KeysNet.com Keynoter 2B Saturday,February 9,2013 LD2713 Member FDIC Equal Housing Lender KeysBank.com 305-289-4393 Your Hometown Banking Team.

Calusa is scheduled to play Colonial Christian, 58-49 winner over Redland Christian in the other semifinal Tuesday. Game time is scheduled for 7 p.m. today at ICS. For Island Christian (85), the good news is that except for the graduating Ayres, the entire Eagle roster is eligible to return for the next several years. Its been a good season. We learned a lot, Martin said. Ive seen real progress so we have to keep working to get better and excel.For 8-5 Eagles, real progressFrom Eagles,1B team we can move on without him. Rices place in the middle of the Conchs 2-3 zone was taken by Luis Acosta and, at times, by the muscular Valdez. At 5-9, Acosta stands a foot shorter than Hurricane center Will Ismer at 6-10.Senior Tony German was a big factor for the Conchs with his rebounding, and he made a reverse lay-up late in the game.Coral Shores, which split two regular-season games with the Conchs, was led by Terrell Taylor, who scored 22 points, and Ismer, who had 19. Demond Scott scored six and Chase Cabral had four. Hurricane ball-handlers were not ready when Key West effectively applied its press, Teachey said. When that happens, with their speed, youre looking at the backs of their jerseys. I was proud of our guys, said Teachey. Alberto Anderson, one of the Canes top scorers, missed the game with a knee injury. The Conchs take a 10-8 record into tonights game against Gulliver, a team theyve lost to twice this season.Staff writer Kevin Wadlow contributed to this report.Rice suspended againFrom Basketball,1B LaSalle takes down ConchsThe Key West High School boys and girls tennis teams got a taste of the big time Tuesday in Key Biscayne when they opened the season against LaSalle on the purple courts of the glittering Tennis Center at Crandon Park. Everything was so bright, said senior Griffin Saunders, who is No. 2 singles on the boys team. Definitely the nicest courts Ive ever played on.Although they played on outlying courts, the Conchs got to go up high in the 13,000-seat stadium site of the annual Sony Ericcson Open finals where they looked down upon a girl, who appeared to be about 5 years old, taking private lessons.She was probably better than half our team, Saunders said before the next days practice, back on the Conchs modest set of courts. Not that Key West was half bad Tuesday against a private school known for its tennis prowess. The Conchs won their share of games, although only Liz Czerwinski, the No. 4, won a match (8-5). Add in an exhibition doubles match, freshmen Laura Hall and Sophie Arazi won their doubles match, 8-3.No. 1 singles Olivia Delaune, a banjo-, classical piano-playing senior, lost, 8-4; No. 2 Fernanda Caceras, a junior, lost, 8-2; freshman Savannah Robinson at No. 3 lost 8-3; and freshman Hannah Brown, at No. 5, lost, 8-4.It was wonderful to see what real talent is, said girls coach Bill Butler. Their kids play year-round and even go to tournaments during the season. But were making slow steady progress. Also on the roster are junior Ali Knowles, junior Jase Schilleci, freshmen Jesse Cheung, Tatum Flowers, Olivia Maliki and Haley Bogiel, and sophomore Haley Rodmon.For the boys team, coached by John Moeller, senior Sonny Knowles, lost at No. 1 8-2; Saunders went down, 8-0; senior Colin Hetzler lost, 8-6; Chris Bujak lost 8-3; and Chun Poon fell, 8-5.We made a lot of mistakes that cost us many points, Moeller said. Four freshmen Kevin Cheng, Andrew Flores, Danylo Khodosevych and Jason Beede round out the boys roster.The Conchs will play St. Brendan on Monday at Tropical Park in Miami. The first home match will be at 2 p.m. Friday against Marathon.Fins visit Key West next FridayBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST TENNISConchs fall in the preseasonHeld to four hits, the Key West High baseball team lost its preseason opener to Miami Brito, 7-2, Tuesday afternoon at the La Ley Sports Complex in Homestead.Playing on a Major League field built in the early 1990s as a spring-training home for the Cleveland Indians who never came the Conchs rallied from a 4-0 deficit with two runs in the fifth inning, but Brito scored three in the sixth to settle the outcome. Steven Wells had two of the Conchshits; starting pitcher Darren Miller had a double off the top of the leftfield wall, and freshman shortstop Greg Veliz added a single in his varsity debut. Miller allowed a run in the first, a run in the second and two in the third. He gave up seven hits in four innings and struck out four. Britos Richie Sotolongo held the Conchs scoreless on two hits for the first four innings, Veliz led off the fifth with a single and eventually scored on a wild pitch. Miller drove in the second run on a sacrifice fly to the left fielder, who made a diving catch.Key West had the potential tying run on base after Chris Varela and Andrew Freeman drew walks from reliever Angel Cortez in the sixth, but Veliz hit sharply into a wellexecuted double play.In the bottom of the sixth, Brito scored three runs by stringing together three hits off Veliz, who had replaced Miller on the mound in the fifth.

One of the best things about living in the Florida Keys is the amazing amount of art and culture. So many artists have chosen to make the Keys their home and that means that we have access to some beautiful local artwork for our home and wardrobe.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4B Saturday,February 9,2013 No beans, no tomatoes, no onions. Most recipe instructions dont begin with lots of donts, but the Food Networks recipe for slowcooker Texas Chili does exactly that. Any review of famous chili recipes quickly concludes that beans are a big bone of contention. Texas-style chili is really meat and chiles. Seasonings vary by region, custom, family history, taste and how long the cook claims to have had the recipe in the family. But, no beans. Emeril Lagasse, a prettyfamous New Orleans chef, offers his own take on the hot and spicy Texas staple from across the river. He starts out with rendered bacon grease, oh my. Lagasse does believe in tomatoes, however, and on that point there seem to be less disputations, unless youre talking about verde, green chili, which has no tomatoes.All this and more will be discussed and tasted at the fourth annual Islamorada Chili Cook-Off, Feb. 16-17 at the Islamorada Moose Lodge, mile marker 81.Contestants from seven states plus Canada have signed up to compete for bragging rights. And a group of professional judges will be deciding whose secret recipe merits the highest honors. Members of the public can partake as well, with 10-12 entries from local chefs available for sampling on Saturday and 20-plus professional chefs serving up chili on Saturday and Sunday after official judging closes each day. Chris Everhart, a Key Largo cook whos won multiple chili cookoffs and is a member of the International Chili Society (ICS), says he remembers when the Keys early chili cookoffs were held a decade ago at Rowells Marina. Growing up in Latin America and then Colorado, Everhart said he came to appreciate the subtleties of different recipes. And, he has qualified for the national championships five years running.This is the fourth year for the Islamorada Moose Lodge Chili Cook Off, said Nancy Saxe, a lodge member and one of the organizers.Admission is free. To sample chili entries, a $5 ticket allows seven samples, she explained. And the ticket stub becomes a vote to select audience favorites in a Peoples Choice competition. Trophies will be awarded in both professional and amateur competitions. There are three categories for the professional chefs competing: traditional red chili, verde (with green chiles) and salsa. There are no beans allowed under ICS rules, Everhart notes, although some home style recipes not part of the official competition may be found during the two-day event. Whats a good chili cookout without music and dancing? Well, on that front the Moose Lodge has stirred up musical talent for both days. Among the groups participating: Barstool Sailor Micah, Scott Youngberg, Moss & the Blues Pirates, Devonshire Rockband, Grateful Ted Hyde and Viviane Ricard, The Toll Takes and more. The Country Line dancing Chili Chicks, from Palm Beach County, will perform (and offer dancing lessons as well). And there will be food and beverages available for sale from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Proceeds benefit the Coral Shores High School Athletic program, The Good Health Clinic and Islamorada Boy Scouts. For more information, call 305-664-8120.

ISLAMORADA Heady mix of blues coming to the BaysideGrowing up in Perth, Australia, blues musician Harper heard the haunting sounds of the didgeridoo.Add the wailing harmonica sounds of Chicago blues legends, and a stint in Canada for another layer of acoustic tempering, and you have what Rambles Magazine calls a master Chicago-style harmonica player.Harper brings his harmonica, the didgeridoo and his band, the Midwest Kind, to Key Largos Bayside Grille Feb. 13-14.Hes part of a six-week blues marathon served up for bar and restaurant patrons with performers coming from the U.S. and Canada.The JWJones Band,p touted as Canadas top touring blues act, opened the series Feb. 6-7. This is their second appearance at the Bayside and the response to that taste of contemporary blues is what started it all, said Robert DiGiorgio, owner of Caf Largo, Bayside Grille and Bayside Sunset Bar. Australian-born Harper, who has performed on FOX, brings his Midwest Kind band to Key Largo for shows Feb. 13-14. Hes backed by his Michiganbased group, featuring Matt Besey on guitar, Chris Wiley Smith on bass guitar/Djembe and Scott Key on drums. On adding the native didgeridoo to his music, Harper says: It is a sound I grew up with, so it seemed natural to add it to my songwriting particularly when the lyrics related to the plight of the Aborigines in Australia.Key Largo hosts six blues bands in Feb.,MarchMUSIC Photo by DAN HILLTodd Wolfe was lead guitarist for Cheryl Crow before starting his own band.LAttitudes StaffWittydescribes Ephrons workLove, Loss and What I Wore, by Nora and Delia Ephron, scored the secondlongest off-Broadway run streak in New Yorks Westside Theatre history. Now its coming to Key West, playing on Sundays and Mondays through Feb. 18 at the Red Barn Theatre, and then returning for a second Sunday-Monday run Mar. 17-Apr. 8.The New York Times review described the play as a scrapbook of stories about unfortunate prom dresses, the traumatic lighting in fitting rooms, high heels, short skirts and the existential state of having nothing to wear.For those familiar with Nora Ephrons work, the word witty is an apt metaphor for the writing here, done with her daughter Delia, herself an accomplished author and playwright. The play is based on a book by Ilene Beckerman.Nora says this show is like The Vagina Monologues, without the vaginas.The play won the 2010 Broadway.com Audience Award for favorite new OffBroadway play. And Variety described the story as catnip. The cast includes Chris Stone, a Red Barn Theatre founding member, as Gingy; Rebecca Gleason as Gingys Mother, as Nancys Mother, Rosie Lynne, Mary, Nora, Doctor; Melody Moore as Nancy, Stephanie, Liz, Annie, Eves Shrink, Woman, Amanda; Stephanie Sander as Alexs Mother, Holly, Merrill, Older Sister, Dora, Eve, Lisa; and Stephanie Yosen as Alex, Nancy, younger sister, Pam, Marys Mother, Geralyn and Heather.Love,Loss and What I Worehas two KW runsTHEATERLAttitudes StaffSee Blues,6BSee Theater,6B Come visit our online photo galleries and submit your own at www.KeysNet.com/Photos

Saturday,February 9,2013 5B Keynoter KeysNet.com The Old Island Restoration Foundations February House Tour is set for 10 a.m. 4 p.m. Feb. 15-16.Examples of island architecture run the gamut from the Gilded Age to the computer age, including a cigarmakers cottage that has grown over five generations in the same family. Tickets cost $30 and are available online at: www.oirf.org or by calling 305-294-9501. Tickets are also available: Capital Bank, (Old Town & North Roosevelt Branches in Key West; mile marker 30.4 on Big Pine Key; 2348 Overseas Hwy., Marathon); Audio Video in Paradise, 1124 Key Plaza, Key West; and Royal Furniture, 3326 N. Roosevelt Blvd., Key West. Checks or cash only. Tickets will also be sold at the featured houses during tour hours. Heres the lineup of houses for February tours:1108 Southard StreetThe shine was still on the Gilded Age when this quintessential Key West Eyebrow house arose at the edge of town. Several renovations and additions kept this house suited to contemporary life. The hands of two local architects, 20 years apart, shaped this residence.717 White StreetNot everything in the Historic District is meant to be saved. Marked for demolition, this post-WWII concrete rambler has a temporary lease on life as the studio/residence of a local artist. An example of what good design can do for short-term housing, an approach useful for renters or those not quite ready to do a full renovation of their own property.912 Packer StreetFive generations of the same family have owned this house since their ancestor arrived from Cuba. Over the years, the cigar makers home grew with Victorian bays and turrets. Inherited by a general contractor, it has been lovingly rebuilt with clever touches throughout and sheltered in a palm garden. Be sure to enjoy the rooftop deck.816 Johnson Lane*Adjacent shotgun houses were stitched together by an owner/architect to create one living/studio space. Transcending and embracing the homes humble origins, a notable artist now paints surrounded by rustic sophistication and a secret garden. *This house closes at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 16.1517 Washington StreetSome may not want to admit it, but 1960 was more than a half century ago and houses from the s are now historic. This typical mid-century modern Midtown home, which merited a Ceramic Star in 2012, has been transformed by its owner/ designer, who has adapted many Old Town houses to meet the demands of modern life. This stop includes a visit to his inhome studio. In addition, the Oldest House, 322 Duval St., will be open for tours to show off recent interior repainting and additions to the collections. Asuccess on the highest level from first to last ... something to write home about. BOSTON GLOBE Pianist Frederick Moyer has played concert halls in 41 countries, including such distinguished venues as the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, the Sydney Opera House, even Windsor Castle. On Saturday, Feb. 9, he plays at Island Christian Church, mile marker 83.25 in Islamorada; on Sunday, Feb. 10, he performs at St. Pauls Church in Key West, and on Monday, Feb. 11, he comes to Marathon. This is Moyers fourth appearance in the Keys as part of the Florida Keys Concert Associations series, which celebrates its 43rd season this year. Moyer, who has been performing for more than 30 years, is also a member of the Jazz Arts Trio, where he specializes in note-for-note transcriptions of such jazz pianists as Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans and Erroll Garner, bringing this great American music onto classical music stages. Moyer started JRI Recordings in 1992, a label which has since produced CDs by numerous worldclass musicians. His many recordings on this and other labels comprise works by more than 30 composers and reflect an affinity for a wide variety of styles. During his Keys concerts, Moyer will play the rarely heard Warsaw Concerto, which was written by British composer Richard Addinsell for the 1941 film, Dangerous Moonlight. The filmmakers were looking for a composition in the style of Sergei Rachmaninoffs Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini or the Second and Third Piano Concertos. Moyer has recorded Mussorgsky/Mendelssohn along with David Otts Second Piano Concerto with the London Symphony, which was written for Moyer. The programming committee of the concert association notes that Moyer is known for bringing his artistry, enthusiasm and recorded orchestra. His adventurous programming and a delightful commentary make him a favorite of audiences.Saturdays concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 at the door.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 6B Saturday,February 9,2013 When I added the didgeridoo to the more traditional blues instruments, it worked. The deep woody qualities and its haunting drone seemed to enhance the emotional quality of my stories.Biscuit Miller and The Mix bring their Chicagostyle blues sound to Key Largo for a Feb. 20 performance. Biscuit is known for his fun and funky style of bass playing and his great rapport with fans. Todd Wolfe, whos worked as a lead guitarist for Cheryl Crow and Carla Olson, brings his own band to the Bayside on Saturday, Feb. 23. As a writer, Wolfes songs have been covered by Faith Hill, Stevie Nicks, Deborah Coleman and others. Since departing Sheryl Crows band, Wolfe has been gaining popularity as a solo artist and guitarist in North America and Europe. There are three more blues groups scheduled at the Bayside in March. That includes the Braille Blues Daddy Bryan Lee and The Blues Power Band, who perform Mar. 9. Lee started out playing for Midwest crowds at the early age of 15. In the late 1950s, he opened for Bill Haley & The Comets with his band The Glaciers, and performed cover music of Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry and Little Richard. By the early 1960s and throughout the 1970s, Lees musical interest turned to the sound of Chicago Blues, where he was heavily influenced by Chicago bluesmen Muddy Waters, HowlinWolf, Hubert Sumlin and Freddie King. Joel DaSilva and the Midnight Howl perform Mar. 2. Their resume includes performances with heavy hitters like B.B. King, A.C.Reed, The Fabulous Thunderbirds and Reverend Horton Heat.
