City Attorney Jon Herin sought the Ethics Commissions opinion the previous month, writing that the vote is on an appeal of a property owner regarding the abandonment of a nonconforming liquor store and tavern use.Herin wrote to the commission that Hill, a Realtor, reportedly represented parties offering to purchase the property and has participated in negotiations for the purchase of the property. The Joseph Ardolino estate owns it.Herin wrote that Lucignano, whose liquor store and deli is about a mile up the road from the Overseas, could benefit financially from the appellant not being permitted to reopen its package liquor store.The Ethics Commission ruled neither Hill nor Lucignano had a voting conflict. Lucignano did not return calls for comment Friday but it appears the FBI is continuing to follow up on claims made by murder-for-hire target Bruce Schmitt.Dennis Zecca, part-owner of the Marathon Marina and Boatyard and a former U.S. Coast Guard Station Islamorada commander, has been jailed since Dec. 21 for what federal authorities say was an unsuccessful attempt to pay $20,000 or a kilo of cocaine for Schmitts murder.The FBI interviewed Marathon Mayor Mike Cinque on Jan. 23, and reportedly interviewed or attempted to interview other council members and city staff.

Thats the date a third state Department of Environmental Protection wastewater permit extension expires.She simply cant afford to upgrade.Thats not only bad news for Farmer but for everyone who patronizes her business: Its the only Laundromat between mile markers 29 and 82, meaning lots more travel and time for laundry especially if you dont have a car.I guess Ill have to take [my clothes] down to the [water] and beat them on the rocks, winter Conch Key resident Lois Kelley said. I dont know just what well do. It seems like theyre always so busy here. She was so good with everybody, too.Cam Lyne moved to Marathon this past summer. I come in all the time and I dont know what Im going to do if she closes down, she said. Grassy Key resident Marcia Craft has been living full-time in Marathon for two years. She attends Florida Keys Community College and said shell be forced to take her laundry with her and do it on Big Pine during her commute. Like every Marathon business and homeowner, Farmer is required to connect to the citywide central sewer system. But to do so means spending around $40,000 to abandon her septic tank and install a wastewater lift station. Ive had three extensions and I asked for this last one to March 31 because I was hoping the seasonal influx would help me come up with the construction money. It hasnt been a very good season, so Im not seeing that I have what I need, Farmer said. She says she was promised donated labor that would help reduce the cost, but even then, she cant cover the bill. We were still looking at about $20,000 with donations, but I dont have that, either. I told the DEPthat I would see what the season brought and if I didnt have it by the 31st, Im not going to have it, she said.

State: 13 stole pieces of historyAFlorida Keys man is among 13 people charged statewide Wednesday with stealing historic archaeological artifacts from throughout the state.Harlan M. Trammell, 49, of Big Pine Key is charged with one federal count each of violating historical resources and dealing in stolen property. Both are felonies.Specifics of Trammells alleged crimes were not immediately available from the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission that spearheaded the undercover probe, called Operation Timucua after an early Native American tribe. Our investigators are still working on leads for possible additional suspects, so we really cant release the specific sites or details about which artifacts were seized from each suspect, FWC spokeswoman Katie Purcell said.Most of the artifacts displayed at a Wednesday press conference were ancient tribal tools, pots and some fossils reportedly taken from state-owned lands and river bottoms, mostly in North Florida.The two-year investigation started after people alerted the state about artifacts being sold at trade shows and online. The FWC, working with the Florida Department of State, says the investigation resulted in more than 400 felonies against the 13 defendants, who live from the Keys to the Panhandle. Jacky Fuller, 54, of Georgia faces 216 counts.Trammell was released from the Monroe County jail after posting a $1,000 bond. He is only defendant who lives south of Sarasota County.Archaeological treasures lead to big bustCRIME FRONT These are some of the artifacts the FWC says were seized. Some were selling for as much as $100,000,authorities say.Keynoter StaffRaschein brings agenda to TallyMoney for sewer construction and windstorminsurance relief rank as top priorities for the Florida Keysfirst-term state representative as she heads into her first legislative session.Weve got to get the rest of the wastewater money, thats No. 1, said Holly Raschein (R-District 120). That seems to be all I talk about.The state Legislature opens its 2013 session Tuesday in Tallahassee and meets through May 3. Raschein knows the legislative process well through several years as an aide to former representatives Ken Sorensen and Ron Saunders, but this session gives her the ability to vote. Im excited, she said. Im really looking forward to it.Monroe County has been promised $200 million in state Everglades restoration bonds grants, essentially toward wastewater projects that protect Florida Bay and Atlantic Ocean water quality.The Legislature released the first $50 million in 2012, with a second $50 million scheduled this year.

2009, she faced a $149,000 sewer bill based on 31.7 equivalent dwelling units, which cost $4,730 each based on expected daily water use.The bill could have been $260,000 if amortized over 20 years, but the City Council passed a 2009 law allowing property owners to lease sewer credits. That meant Farmer wouldnt be on the hook for the full amount.Then Farmers EDU count was reduced to 19.11 in August last year, but even that was not tenable. Farmer hoped the council would do as the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District did: Amend its law to read that Laundromats be charged for one equivalent dwelling unit regardless of water use and pay standard use fees on top of that.Not wanting to be tied into a single EDU charge for any Laundromat, the council agreed to discount Farmers 19.11 EDU charge by 75 percent. It hasnt been enough.My customer base is down. Alot of people are having issues with my prices already. People traveling think its unreasonable. Alot of locals, it just forced them to not be able to come here, Farmer said. She charges $4.50 per washing-machine load. And the she still owes $70,000 on the machines that replaced the ones destroyed in the fire. Where do you make that final decision of how far can I go with this? Ive been working seven days a week with no employees to see if I can come up with the extra money, but how long can I work seven days a week? Its a real tough decision, Farmer said. The City of Marathon Marina has a laundry facility, but its keycard-protected and open only to marina customers.Decisions real toughFrom Laundry,1ABoard blasts finance staffThe School District received its fourth consecutive state audit last week that shows, among other serious bookkeeping flaws, finance staff did not report the district was in default for almost a year on a $36 million construction bond. The Monroe County School Board Tuesday put Superintendent Mark Porter on notice that things have to change, even calling out two top financial administrators by name. Board member Ed Davidson railed about the finding that the School District in December 2011 failed to pay its annual debt of $2.1 million for the $36 million bond to rebuild Horace OBryant Middle School in Key West. That payment was made 267 days late, on Aug. 24, 2012. Why the hell didnt anybody tell the School Board? Davidson asked. Who thought they had the authority to conceal a default on a $36 million bond issue? Thats just utterly unconscionable. Davidson told Porter, I would like to know, Mr. Superintendent, who knew that, when they knew, who made the decision? This is the kind of chicanery that has gone on long before you got here.This time last year when board members found themselves in a very similar situation, then-Chairman John Dick called for heads to roll.No heads rolled, he acknowledged during the meeting at Coral Shoes High School in Tavernier. I think the fact that no heads rolled, thats why were here again. Heads should roll.He told Porter, Im directing that you clean this up. To me, it needs to be done. Its not a matter of shuffling things around. The same people are producing the same stuff over the years. You cant shuffle the deck; you need to clean the house.Davidson said lack of accountability is a culturally endemic problem in the School District. This kind of slipshod performance on the public payroll has been acceptable, and virtually nobody has ever been held accountable, Davidson said. Youre not really in charge, Mr. Superintendent, until you fire somebody for cause. Or dont renew them. The Florida Auditor Generals Office in Tallahassee blasted the districts bookkeeping practices in its latest report. Other issues in the audit include:District procedures did not always ensure that minutes for meetings were appropriately maintained and timely approved, contrary to Sunshine Law, which governs governmental transparency and public records.Payroll processing procedures could be enhanced to ensure that employee work time is appropriately documented and approved, accurately recorded and not in conflict with other employment.Vehicle logs were not always complete, accurate, and reviewed and approved of record by supervisory personnel.Controls over the review and approval of construction contract change orders could be improved.Ken Gentile, the districts director of finance and performance, said 18 findings are unacceptable and that the buck should stop with him. But he said some issues in the audit have been resolved. Porter said he would bring a detailed analysis of the audit findings to the board at its March 12 meeting.State report contains 18 poor findingsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS KeysNet.com Keynoter 2A Saturday,March 2,2013 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDA Y HIGH L O W SAT.6855 SUN.6754 MON.6759 TUES.7563 Forecast: Expect rainy conditions throughout the weekend.

Florida Forever program that purchases sensitive conservation lands also are on Rascheins agenda. Both of these are big issues for the Florida Keys, she said. As a member of House Transportation and Highway Safety Committee, Raschein said she wants to ensure adequate money to maintain the roads and 42 bridges that link the Keys. Were also working on the old Seven Mile Bridge, Raschein said. The state Department of Transportation is ready to hand it over to the locals. Its a matter of crunching numbers and finding the funds. The bridge has been closed to autos and fishing for several years because its in disrepair. DOTsays it would help finance repairs if it no longer has to own it and the liability that goes with it. Raschein said she plans to work against any big rate increases for the state-backed Citizens Property Insurance Corp. that writes most windstorm policies in the Keys. Nobody is writing builders-risk policies, so Ive been talking to Citizens President Barry Gilway about that, Raschein said. Builders-risk policies provide contractor insurance coverage of homes and buildings under construction. In this economy, not having those policies is hurtful, Raschein said. Other items on her legislative agenda:Raschein co-sponsored HB 653 with Rep. Joe Saunders (D-Orlando) that would prohibit employment discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Given the culture of the Keys and One Human Family [campaign], I think its important for us and all Florida, she said.Afinal draft of a bill that would restore elections for Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority board members was being prepared Friday; the fivemember board is now governor-appointed. Raschein said the bill will be introduced by Tuesdays noon deadline for filing.Raschein signed onto HB 531 that would extend tax-emempt status for military-related homes as long as the homes are occupied by military families. Peary Court, a former U.S. Navy housing subdivision in Key West, is being converted to private ownership. As soon as a home sells to a non-military family, it goes on the [property tax] rolls, she said.Rascheins HB 1121 would allow animal-care groups to release a community cat that has been neutered and is under its care without penalty. Veterinarians who treat a community cat would not be held liable for its care.Bridges on listFrom Legislature,1A interview was mostly related to Zecca, but included other things that Bruce had said to them. Schmitt has been outspoken in criticizing the citys efforts to deny a package store at the former Overseas. The city cited a 2007 law banning liquor sales at businesses within 1,500 feet of a school, church or other establishment selling liquor. Schmitts family owns the local Coldwell Banker realty franchise and numerous properties, including the Publix shopping center and Walgreens at mile marker 50. The law affected both of those businesses, as well as the Overseas. Schmitt makes no secret he believes Lucignano played a significant role in the 2007 laws passage. However, in an April 24 ruling, Monroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlin reversed the 1,500foot rule. The city appealed, and Audlin reaffirmed his ruling. Following is a summary of the city records requested by the FBI:Planning Commission meeting minutes for March, April, May, July, August and October 2012.An April 26, 2012, letter from city Utilities Manager Zully Hemeyer to Lucignano about his wastewater assessment at his Plaza Grill restaurant, which adjoins his liquor store and deli.The Nov. 7, 2011, informal opinion from the Commission on Ethics regarding Lucignano and Hill.The Oct. 27, 2011, letter from Herin to Commission on Ethics Executive Director Virlindia Doss requesting the informal opinion.An Aug. 3, 2011, letter from attorney John Parente, co-personal representative for the Ardolino estate, requesting Lucignano and Hill not vote on Overseas issues.Lucignanos June 11, 2008, welcome letter and Dec. 15, 2008, resignation letter from the citys advisory Code Compliance Board. An Oct. 19, 2005, letter from the city to the state Department of Environmental Protection about the installation of riprap and a retaining wall at Lucignanos house in Marathon.Alist of Planning Commission members and their contact information.Records soughtFrom FBI,1A The undercover operation shut down a group of individuals who destroyed state lands to illegally uncover and sell historic Florida artifacts, the FWC said in a statement. The suspects were part of a criminal conspiracy, said Maj. Curtis Brown, head of the FWCs Investi-gations section. Their crimes pose serious environmental, economic and cultural consequences. Florida law establishes that historic properties, including artifacts, are an important legacy to be valued and conserved for present and future generations. When people take them and sell them illegally, they are stealing from the citizens of Florida. This is not the situation of a family out hiking and finding an arrowhead or other artifact that they want to take home, Brown said. We did not target the casual collector. These subjects intentionally destroyed lands and rivers for their own personal gain. Some even made their entire living on these illegal sales. Asking prices for some of the looted pieces were as much as $100,000, Brown said.The FWC said the methods used by the defendants were extremely damaging to the environment. They were operating on state lands, illegally dredging rivers and digging massive holes in pristine wooded areas.Some of the sites they looted have been completely decimated and will never be able to be studied by professional archaeologists in the future, said Rob Bendus, historic preservation officer and director of the state Division of Historical Resources.Historians are still trying to piece together the history of Native Americans in Florida, Bendus said. These sites hold immeasurable amounts of information that would be extremely valuable to historians and archaeologists working to learn more about Floridas earliest human inhabitants. Seized records and computers could lead to additional arrests, authorities said.Land damagedFrom Artifacts,1A Cases pending, deputies still patrollingTwo Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputies charged in what state troopers describe as a Feb. 19 road-rage incident on the 18Mile Stretch remain on roadpatrol duty in the Upper Keys pending investigation and court action.Deputies Darnell Durham, 36, and Kyle Page, 43, are charged with reckless driving by Florida Highway Patrol troopers. Durham is also charged with vandalism for allegedly kicking a trucks door, and giving false information to officers. All the counts are misdemeanors. Page and Durham were given notices to appear in Miami-Dade County court.Until the cases are resolved, the deputies will work their regular patrol jobs in uniform and carrying their guns when on duty and under the supervision of a sergeant, Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said.When off duty, Durham and Page are indefinitely banned from carrying guns or law-enforcement identification. Both were off-duty Feb. 19 riding their Suzuki sport motorcycles south toward Key Largo around 6 p.m. Witnesses told troopers that Durham and Page raced down the paved shoulder of U.S. 1 at speeds estimated at 70 to 80 mph.Durham, admittedly disturbed after he felt the driver of a white pickup truck cut him off, is accused of kicking the trucks passenger door when the driver failed to stop.The truck driver and his passenger said they did not stop because the motorcyclists were wearing civilian clothes and appeared angry.The incident reportedly covered most of the 18Mile Stretch, from just south of Florida City to mile marker 107.Numerous calls from drivers were made to the Sheriffs Office dispatch center to report the motorcyclists. When troopers and other deputies stopped Durham and Page, several other drivers stopped to complain about their erratic driving.Several times, the motorcyclists sped past the truck only to stop, pull in behind them and pass them again, witnesses said. The truck occupants said they believe Durham pulled out a handgun during the pursuit but he denied it. No weapon was found. Investigating troopers cited Durham for saying he never kicked the truck, when a dent and footprint were found on the door. He also reportedly offered differing versions of whether his motorcycle and the truck ever made contact. Durham joined the Sheriffs Office in August 2005.

More changes for HOBThe Monroe County School Board on Tuesday decided to scale back plans and associated costs of a soccer field and parking lot at Horace OBryant Middle School in Key West. When the $38 million HOB reconstruction began in 2010, the soccer field was displaced to accommodate the construction. Plans called for the field to be replaced but with added bells and whistles like elaborate lighting and drainage. Now that the project is months away from a planned June 1 completion, the board has to move quickly to build a parking lot next to the soccer field in order to issue a certificate of occupancy before classes start in August. The parking lot and soccer field are considered jointly since their proximity requires a cohesive drainage plan. The most recent cost estimate was $700,000 but Superintendent Mark Porter scaled that back to around $400,000.I believe we owe the community the same lighted recreational field we had before, Porter said. As for the parking lot, We are building what is essentially the bare minimum for the number of employees that will be working in the building.Atimeline presented to the School Board says the lot and field could be done by Oct. 1, months after the building is done. Porter said the certificate of occupancy hinges on a parking plan or a lot constructed, meaning a firm plan in place by June 1 can forego the immediate presence of the actual lot.Hotline deadThe School Board voted 4-1, with John Dick dissenting, to do away with the districts waste, fraud and abuse hotline run by Oregon-based vendor EthicsPoint for $5,000 annually. Aseries of public-records request made by schools critic Larry Murray revealed that the anonymous tip portal is at best ineffectively monitored and at worst potentially sabotaged. District administrator Ken Gentile rolled out the hotline in 2011 with the understanding that complaints naming him would be directed to the superintendent. Murrays records requests revealed that instead, complaints naming Gentile went to a short-time former intern who quit working for the district prior to the hotline going live. Gentile has said hes investigating how that happened, as has Porter, although theres no word on any findings.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Saturday,March 2,2013 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com Offer ends 3/31/13.

Aside from a new City Hall which could accommodate sit-down dinners for up to 200 guests on the two acres across the highway from Florida Keys Marathon Airport, the city has major upgrades in the works for the remaining eight acres. Purchased for $1.4 million in 2003, part of which was funded by a Florida Communities Trust recreation grant, the city is required to spend $400,000 on passive recreation projects in order to not have to return the money.Already complete is a $58,000 project to install kayak docks, parking and boardwalk areas, and picnic pavilions on an oceanside canal.Tuesday, the council authorized staff to pursue grants for Community Services Director Debbie Londons idea for a recreational trail with up to 20 fitness stations. It would be about 10 feet wide and total .52 miles over 27,000-plus square feet.The city will apply for up to $200,000 in state Department of Environmental Protection Recreational Trails Program grant funding. There is a 60-40 match, meaning the citys portion would be $80,000 if the full amount were awarded.In addition, the city is pursuing a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration grant to install a boardwalk and tiki huts along the water at the back of the property. London said the city is awaiting permits from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Some other potential projects back there are a fishing pier, commercial fishing monument and restrooms, London said. The fishing pier and monument would also be along the water, while the restrooms would be closer to the front of the property, she said.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONPanel tackling HOB messWith the $36 million reconstruction of Horace OBryant Middle School in Key West bogged down in Monroe County School Board criticism of contract change orders and cost hikes, Chairman Andy Griffiths on Tuesday called for an all-day fact-finding session.Griffiths said the closeddoor session would include board member Ed Davidson, Audit and Finance Committee member Stuart Kessler, Superintendent Mark Porter, Director of Operations Michael Kinneer, HOB Principal Mike Henriquez, contract construction manager Bill Sprague and representatives from general contractor Coastal Construction.The board is in the process of retroactively approving change orders that were authorized without their OK. That violates board policy that requires amendments costing more than $25,000 be considered at a public meeting.Also under scrutiny is a 60 percent-40 percent contractual arrangement between the district and Coastal respectively, splitting savings on project costs.Davidson has questioned whether the more than $600,000 in the contract deemed savings represents a decrease in costs for material and labor, or simply omissions.The exact reason to have such a committee is do this kind of detail work and then report back to the School Board on the findings, Griffiths said. Hes shooting to have the committee meet sometime between the March 12 and April 9 board meetings. He defended his decision to have the meeting out of the public eye: I have to consider all the alternatives to do the publics work, Griffiths said. My opinion ... is that sometimes you have to let people let their hair down and let the fur fly. That sausage-making is ugly. I dont think theres anything sinister going on.Davidson said his likely process is interviewing people involved in the change order mis-processing, then analysis and follow-up interviews, then reporting out findings with documentation when the investigation is complete.He said that would avoid half-baked results that might impugn someones integrity in the press.... It is quite likely that there will still be plenty of documented and substantiated impugning in due course, and with due process.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSSTUCK Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWInstallation of an underground transmission pipe by Reynolds Water Islamorada,the sewer contractor for the village,led this week to miles-long traffic backups in the mile marker 95 area with motorists needing more than an hour to travel just a few miles.

EDITORIALPublic patience is wearing thinLETTERS TO THE EDITORAll groups lobbyI read, as I always do, your editorial. Your latest, With NRAjuice, gun law stands, reminds me of something you may have overlooked, the Legislative process.Those who pen the proposed bills are not legislators but organizations interested in certain concerns: The Sierra Club on environmental issues; the Service Employees International Union, labor concerns; and the National Education Association; the American Federation of Teachers, teacher advocate organizations; and police, public and private employee groups and many more.These groups and many more petition, lobby and write their pet bills in the Legislature. Maybe next time a topic such as this is addressed, the scope could include the reality of how the bills are written and lobbied onto the floor for a vote and the governors signature. The NRAis low-hanging fruit, an easy target. Perhaps thats why the word juice was used. Robert Burrichter Oakdale, Minn. Summerland KeyFamily fun for allThe Marathon Parks and Recreation Department wants to extend a huge thanks to all of the many volunteers and organizations that participated in the recent fifth annual Family Fun Fest at the Community Park on Jan. 26. Due to the incredible support, the festival had more than 1,000 participants. Thanks to all groups and individuals that participated. We could not have this without this enormous support from the community. Ali Adams MarathonThanks for fundraiserThe Kreative Kids Christian Academy would like to say thank you to Karen Dennis, Mike Cinque and the Stuffed Pig Restaurant for hosting the National Pig Days fundraiser. We would also like to thank all the sponsors and all the people who volunteered. Thanks to the entire Marathon community for coming out and supporting our kids. Karen MacCrory Director Kreative Kids Christian Academy Marathon Like most Americans, Im watching the ongoing national fiscal debates in Washington with great interest and a good deal of trepidation. Its my job to ensure that we man, train and equip a naval aviation force that is ready to fly, fight and win whenever and wherever our forward military commanders around the world need that capability. Its also my role to put in place the policies that will ensure that naval aviation endures as a vital and relevant part of our Navy and the broader national security framework. Working with other leaders in the community, we developed a vision for naval aviation that will help us ensure a whole, capable and affordable force. That vision, though still important, is in jeopardy due to the across-the-board nature of looming budget cuts resulting from the potential of a full-year continuing resolution and sequestration. The chief of naval operations has given us directions to act now in the face of these pending cuts. As we make choices of where and how to cut in the limited way were able in this circumstance, its important to note that all of our processes are interconnected.Once we begin pulling levers to move the big machine, there will be impacts across the entirety of naval aviation. Some of these impacts may not be immediately apparent today, but they will impact our future in the near and far term, and may not be easily reversed.I understand that in almost any conceivable circumstance, there will be fewer resources available. This reality has informed our vision and is driving how naval aviation must organize, man, train and equip as a whole to successfully perform its missions today and in the future.Achieving combat effectiveness which is what we are fundamentally all about requires the judicious management of manpower, supplies and training dollars to safely and effectively operate Navy and Marine Corps aircraft to be ready for whatever the nation asks of us, whenever we are asked. Naval aviation has embraced affordability, which I see as generally driven by two elements: The acquisition cost to develop and buy our platforms, and the operating and sustainment costs to bring the full throw weight of our aviation force to bear over their entire service life.We are completing our strike-fighter transition into the FA-18E/F Super Hornet. We are well into transition with our electronic attack community out of the older EA-6B Prowler and into the extraordinarily capable EA-18G Growler. We are also well into our rotary wing transition into the lethal multi-mission MH-60R and MH-60S Knighthawks, programs that, by the way, saved taxpayers (you and me) billions of dollars through multi-year procurement strategies.Our legacy P-3C Orion squadrons have begun transition into the remarkable P-8APoseidon, an aircraft based on the concept of leveraging a reliable, already-proven low cost platform that carries an array of sensors, networks and weapons designed to operate in an open architecture warfighting environment.Another way in which were trying to make our Navys aviation force more affordable for the future is by reducing the number of types, models and series of aircraft within the carrier strike group.For example, in 2005, a carrier strike group may have deployed with as many as 10 different models of aircraft which, collectively, required eight different engine types, each with its own maintenance and supply support requirements.In our new vision, a carrier strike group in 2025 would deploy with as few as five different models of aircraft with five engine types, significantly reducing our life-cycle costs to own and operate those Navy aircraft.Theres more to affordability than simply designing and buying better aircraft, though. The cost to operate our present and future platforms combined with advanced capabilities that are rapidly exceeding the capabilities of our current training ranges demands that within naval aviation, we become much more innovative in combining live, virtual and constructive training.Flight time in the cockpit or crew station will always matter for our naval aviators, but our potential adversariescapabilities are evolving to the point where much of our most realistic training in the future may be done in a high-fidelity simulator, linked with an array of other simulators in a hi-tech, hi-threat environment that cant be replicated anywhere else. And flight hours are likely to become more scarce under budget cuts.Although we place affordability at the heart of everything we do, we will never lose sight of our true mission: Providing combat-ready aviation forces forward where, and when, they are needed most today, tomorrow and in the future. That mission may be harder to achieve moving forward but we will do everything we can to achieve it. Vice Adm. David Buss is commander of the Naval Air Forces.Financial problems continue at the School District yet no one seems accountableFor four years in a row, the Monroe County School District has been tagged by state auditors for lax bookkeeping, improper financial reporting and poor payroll processing, among other deficiencies. The big one this year: Failing to report a $2.1 million bond default for almost a year on the $36 million borrowed to build the Horace OBryant Middle School. Why the hell didnt anybody tell the School Board? School Board member Ed Davidson asked this week. Good question. Heres an even better one: Why has no one lost their job over the past four years with critical audits year after year? One year ago, in March 2012, board Chairman Andy Griffiths said board members expected to get monthly reports on steps to correct critical 2011 audit findings. What happened? Well, the boards chief internal auditor (Ken Gentile at the time) moved into a chief administrative office post with then-Schools Superintendent Jesus Jara. This, one month after board member John Dick called for heads to roll after yet another poor scorecard from the state noting the problem areas cited were repeats from 2010. He leveled a similar blast in February 2010 about the 2009 audit results: Weve had bad audits now a couple [years] in a row. To me, people should be let go. I think it sits with the whole executive team in the district administration. Thats the year auditors flagged $500,000 in improper spending on computer hardware and salaries for computer techs, and found nearly $8 million in district funds invested with no evidence that the actual securities, trust-receipts, third-party safekeeping receipts or anything else of record was obtained. The latest instance of financial mismanagement under scrutiny involves multiple change orders at HOB. In a move thats already brought yet more criticism, Griffiths has called a closed-door meeting with the superintendent, district Director of Operations Michael Kinneer, HOB Principal Mike Henriquez, contract construction manager Bill Sprague and representatives from general contractor Coastal Construction. Board member Ed Davidson will represent the board at the meeting and promises to bring back findings to the full board at a public meeting. After years of critical audits, a history of mismanagement of public funds and failing to report a $2.1 million bond default for nearly a year, the public has lost confidence in the districts ability to manage public money. For years, some board members have called for heads to roll. What will happen this time after yet another fact-finding session, especially one being conducted outside the sunshine? The publics patience is wearing very thin. This latest closed-door meeting is surely the wrong cure for what ails this district.GUEST COLUMNDespite cuts, naval aviation will remain strong BUSS CELEBRATING OUR PAST The two-month session of the Florida Legislature opens on Tuesday with Rep.Holly Raschein,Republican from Key Largo,representing the Keys. This is state Rep.Ralph Cunningham Jr.in his official legislative portrait from 1959. The Democrat apparently is the only person from Marathon to represent the Keys in the Legislature,which was established as the uni-cameral Legislative Council in 1824.It evolved into the bi-cameral Legislature we know today in 1845,when Florida was admitted to the union.Photo courtesy FLORIDA STATE ARCHIVES City signs off on sewermoneyKeys governments are optimistic and preparing to receive a second $50 million in wastewater grants through the state Legislature.Following the Monroe County Commission last week, the Marathon City Council on Tuesday approved the wording of an interlocal agreement between various Keys governments about how to distribute the money if its approved.The deal confirms that Marathon, which received nothing from last years initial allocation, would receive $20 million. The Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District would also receive $20 million, while the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority would receive $5 million, Key West $4 million and Key Colony Beach $1 million.Gov. Rick Scott didnt include the grant in his proposed $74.2 billion fiscal year 2013-14 spending plan. But his chief of staff, Adam Hollingsworth, has told state Rep. Holly Raschein that Scott looks forward to signing a budget with the $50 million in it. City Manager Roger Hernstadt said the local governments endured a series of meetings and rewrites, but crafted a document that shows we know whats best for our community to complete all projects involved. The so-called $200 million Mayfield grant was authorized in 2009 and was supposed to be allocated at $50 million for four consecutive years. But the first of the money came last year after Scott and the state Cabinet approved it in January 2012 at a meeting at Stanley Switlik Elementary School in Marathon.That $50 million was split between Monroe County and Islamorada.I know how hard it was to put this together. I know what Marathon did [last year] by stepping aside for the good of the county. The governor has been clear that this money be used for everyones good, Mayor Mike Cinque said. In other business Tuesday, the council:Finalized language amending city code for special-event permit fees. The $85 charge used to be for events where more than 250 people would attend in an entire day. The council unanimously adopted City Manager Roger Hernstadts suggestion to change the language to read or more at one time.Finalized a homestead tax amendment to the state Constitution approved by voters in November. It applies only to residents at least age 65 with an annual income less than $27,590 and an assessed property value less than $250,000. The owner must also be a 25-year resident of that property. Qualified applicants under those terms would be exempt from paying municipal property taxes if his or her city passes such a law. The same thing for unincorporated Monroe County if the County Commission passes such a law. Agencies such as the School District, Florida Keys Mosquito Control District and South Florida Water Management District are not included. All Florida properties qualify for an initial homestead exemption of up to $50,000 provided the property is the primary residence. It expects state funding to flow southBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Finally, closure to city pig lawAny more changes to Marathons law regulating swine are likely to happen when pigs fly. Last-minute citizen concerns were not enough to sway the City Council from finalizing the law on Tuesday that allows residents to keep pigs as domestic pets. Originally approved on Dec. 11, the council agreed to tweak it when Councilman Dick Ramsay said hed received numerous complaints about it. On Feb. 12, the council agreed on four amendments, including a prohibition on breeding pigs in city limits, and requiring male pigs to be neutered by four weeks of age and female pigs spayed within four months. My concern is that this ordinance, if enacted, may allow any pig in any residential district in the city of Marathon, Coco Plum resident Linda Berrigan said.Mayor Mike Cinque championed the law in an attempt to allow a pair of residents to keep their pigs after complaints were made to the city.Fellow board members agreed to Councilman Dick Ramsays suggestion that city staff report periodically on the status of the law. I would like to see built into this a quarterly report, assuming it passes, to this council as to whether this ordinance has caused any problems and whether it needs to be brought back up again, he said. Additional amendments include requiring pet pigs to be on a leash or otherwise restrained when outside the owners home, and that enclosures meet minimum setback requirements.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON

One of the things that just tickles me is showing young girls how to shake hands. I solemnly tell them that its important for a woman to have a strong handshake so they will be taken seriously and treated with respect. And based on my experience at a recent networking gathering, I may need to branch out to show the secrets of the handshake to adult women, too. We were getting along famously, until we shook hands.She took my hand in hers and promptly gave it a couple of shoulder-wrenching pumps, like she was trying to get the last drink of water out of a dying well.No doubt youve also experienced the Pump Handle as well as the YouOld-Cuss Arm Waggle, the Dead Fish Shake, the IWork-Out Crusher Grip, the Long-Time-No-See Shake and Back Thump, the ImReally-Sincere Double-Hand Shake and many more.Some of these are perfectly fine, depending on the circumstances. But there are some that should never be used.Like the Dead Fish: For some reason, many men (and even some women) think that women are delicate flowers or high-earning concert pianists who can use their fingers only while shaking hands. Their fingers touch yours in a gingerly fashion that makes it seem they are reluctant to touch you because you might give them cooties. Note: If a woman offers you a limp hand, go with it. She probably has greatgrandchildren or is member of some royal family. Never force a Standard Handshake on anyone.The true under no circumstances is the Crusher Grip. I have never had a woman do this to me, but some men like to use this knuckle-grinding grip as a way to show that they have way more testosterone than you do.Next up is the Arm Waggle. This starts out as a normal handshake, and then turns into a swinging hammock between your two bodies, moving the arm vigorously side to side from the shoulder. Woe betide you if youve got rotator cuff issues.The Double-Hand Shake is politiciansfavorite, although people in other professions use it, too. It starts as the Standard Handshake, then they place their other hand over yours for extra impact. And you just know, by the earnest look in their eyes, that if they had a third hand, it also would come into play because they really, really care. Avariant on this is the Upper Arm Rest. First comes the Standard Handshake, then the other hand migrates to your upper arm, which is variously squeezed, patted or lightly punched, depending on the circumstances. The Shake and Thump is mostly a guy thing, particularly between men who have deep affection for each other but dont want onlookers to think they have an intimate relationship. I have employed it myself, usually when Im going in for hug and hes got his hand stuck out, so we strike something of a compromise: I shake his hand, and stretch my awkwardly suspended hugging arm around his back for a couple of quick, gruff thumps. It all works out. Jackie Harder owns Key Dynamics Coaching and Consulting Inc. of Key Largo.

Judges back online travel industryRejecting arguments that Florida counties have been shortchanged, a state appeals court Thursday sided with the online travel industry in a major legal battle about payment of hotel bed taxes. The 1st District Court of Appeal, in a 2-1 ruling, said companies such as Expedia and Orbitz cannot be forced to pay local tourist-development taxes on part of the money they collect from customers. The majority found that the disputed amounts relate to reservation charges not to the actual amounts paid to rent hotel rooms and described the companies as conduits. In this role, the companies collect the monies owed for the room, including taxes and fees, and pass on to the hotels the money for the room rental and the taxes on the price of the room,said the opinion, written by Judge Brad Thomas and joined by Judge Marguerite Davis. The consideration the companies ultimately keep is not for the rental or lease, but for their service in facilitating the reservation.But Judge Philip Padovano dissented, writing that the taxes should be based on the overall amount that customers pay. He wrote that he did not think state law was ambiguous on the issue, a rationale that a Leon County circuit judge cited last year in ruling in favor of the online-travel companies.It is not confusing or unclear, Padovano wrote. It imposes a tax on the funds paid by a tourist to rent a room in a hotel. The matter is no more complicated than that. The lawsuit and others like it in Florida and across the country focuses on a major part of the way online-travel companies do business. They serve as sorts of middlemen between travelers and hotels, charging customers for room rentals and fees related to providing the service.If online-travel companies were forced to pay touristdevelopment taxes on the full amounts they collect from customers, not just on the amounts that go for room rentals, it would cost the industry millions of dollars a year.Thursdays ruling upheld a decision last April by Leon County Circuit Judge James Shelfer in a case that was filed in 2009 and has involved 17 counties. State lawmakers in recent years also have grappled with the tax issue but have not agreed on a bill that could help resolve the disputes about the taxes.During oral arguments earlier this month, Thomas alluded to the Legislature considering bills about the issue, an issue he also mentioned in the 13-page majority opinion. As the trial court [Shelfer] here correctly determined, it is for the Legislature, and not the judiciary, to decide whether to apply the tax to the full amount ....Fights over the bed taxesBy JIM SAUNDERSNews Service of FloridaFriends recall the late WalkerPlans are in the works, but not yet complete, for a Key West service for Robert Walker, a former Keys schools superintendent and former chief of AIDS HELP who died Tuesday at age 68.Walker died of prostate cancer. He is survived by wife Celia, seven daughters and 10 grandchildren.Walkers long career in the Florida Keys includes stints as a teacher and guidance counselor at Horace OBryant Middle School, and as principal of what was then called Glynn Archer Junior High School.He was elected to a fouryear term as superintendent from 1992 to 1996. In 2001, Walker came out of retirement and started a 12-year run as executive director of the nonprofit AIDS Help, which provides services to people living with AIDS and HIV.Monroe County School Board member Andy Griffiths recalls his time working with Walker as both a board member/superintendent and principal/student when a young Griffiths attended Glynn Archer while Walker was principal. Griffiths recalled waiting in Tampa for a flight back to Key West with Walker following a schools function. Robert was so passionate about public education, he said. Wed talk on the macro level and we talked right through our flight announcement. We went to the counter and fortunately got on the next one. Then Robert just picked right back up where he left off. Griffiths recalled that in 1983, Walker was in charge of HOB when it was nationally recognized for achievement, prompting a meet-andgreet with then-President Reagan at the White House.When Walker, a native of Mississippi, retired from AIDS Help last year, Mayor Craig Cates proclaimed July 18 Robert G. Walker Day in honor of his years of charitable work.After learning of Walkers death, Cates said, We lost a very special man. He has made this community a better place and made a different in many lives. He will always be remembered for his integrity, family values and the way he was always giving back.Walker was a member, past officer and past president of the Key West Rotary Club, and served on the boards of the Key West Art and Historical Society, Florida Keys Area Health Education Center and the South Florida Health Foundation.KEY WEST By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com WALKER KeysNet.com Keynoter 6A Saturday,March 2,2013 9 Ct.Tanzanite W/Diamonds Peter Max Ladies 18K Pearlmaster, Diamonds Marc Chagall Large Diamonds Rolex Watches Itzak Tarkay H.C.

The countys law was mostly related to the Lower KeysNo Name Key, a 1,000-acre island whose homeowners have been battling for decades over bringing commercial power there. Residents use solar panels and generators now.But there are coastal barrier areas up and down the Keys including in North Key Largo and the water underneath the Tavernier Creek Bridge causing problems the county never considered.County staff confirmed in November that it would not issue sewer-hookup permits to 32 homes along County Road 905 in North Key Largo because that area is included in the CBRS. The Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District learned of the issue just days before construction began to install a force main along the road. Amuch larger problem arose last week when the village of Islamoradas wastewater pipeline to Key Largo was called into question. An underwater portion beneath the Tavernier Creek Bridge is part of the CBRS.The County Commission was set to discuss the North Key Largo and Islamorada problems Tuesday, but postponed the talk until the next regular commission meeting in Key Largo on May 15. That will give Keith and Schnars time to begin its study.Also Tuesday, the commission had a lengthy discussion about the perceived inconsistency of CBRS language in the countys comprehensive plan and land development regulations. The comp plan discourages utilities in CBRS areas, while the overlay district prohibits utilities.The commission voted to let the Keith and Schnars study decide whether matching that language is necessary. It will depend on whether the study indicates CBRS language further protects the environment or does not offer the environment any additional protection.The commission approved 30 of 51 proposed tasks for Keith and Schnars. Three were proposed by staff, while Keys environmental group Last Stand, the Solar Community of No Name Key, No Name resident Beth Ramsay-Vickrey and Big Pine Key resident Joyce Newman, among others, requested 48.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comCOASTAL BARRIER RESOURCES ACT15TH STREET CLEANUP Off-duty Monroe County Sheriffs Office volunteers,along with a crew of jail trustees, load trash and yard debris on a new Isuzu dump truck Friday on 15th Street in Marathon.Sheriff Rick Ramsay has made cleaning up problem areas up and down the Keys a priority since being elected in November.Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHY Come visit our online photo galleries and submit your own photos at www.KeysNet.com/PhotosIN THE COURTS

The fans half the city of Marathon seemed to be there overflowed Key West Highs Back Yard park. It was time, on this Wednesday night, for the Conchs and Dolphins to play softball. It all began beautifully for the visitors. The Dolphins scored three-first inning runs, two on a double by Sacha Olivera. The damage would have been worse had not pitcher Desirae Laguna struck out Taylor Konrath and Ashlyn Katz. With Jordan Roney, a hard-throwing freshman in her third season as the teams ace on the mound, the Dolphins seemed to anticipate a successful evening. It would soon turn, though, into a disaster. Roney J-Ro, the fans called her was wild. Three walks helped the Conchs come back with five runs in their half of the first. Marathon misplays didnt help either, but came as no surprise to coach Andrea Murphy, who later said, If there was an error to be made, we made it. Roney hit the leadoff batter in the fourth and Key West went on to score four more runs, the last two on a double by Devin Osterhoudt. More unnecessary adversity confronted Roney when the first baseman dropped another throw and the shortstop and left fielder let a short pop fly fall safely. While Roney had more varsity experience, a more elaborate windup and a faster fastball, Laguna was the better pitcher for this night.

The leadoff batter hitter walked and the next batter hit a high fly ball to left field that was lost in the lights. One run scored and the batter reached third base on the play. He scored on a base hit by the next batter to make it a 6-0 game. Meanwhile, the Dolphins struggled offensively and at one point struck out on six consecutive at-bats from the first to third innings.

Road delay slows Dolphin nettersCount the Marathon High School tennis team among the unlucky motorists heading north through a monstrous Key Largo traffic jam Thursday. The Dolphins were delayed arriving for a match against Palmer Trinity School, and coach Chris Bull said it showed on the court. The boys lost, 2-5, while the girls lost, 1-5-1, with the No. 2 doubles match called because of darkness. The four hours in the vans showed, as players spent the first few games getting their legs under them, he said. Arevamped Falcons squad didnt help Marathons chances. The Palmer boys team was already strong, while the girls side added three United States Tennis Association tournament players in the off-season.Last years No. 1 is now No. 3 and they are now solid from top to bottom, Bull said.The Dolphin boys (3-3) lost all five singles matches. In doubles, Vincenzo Massaro and Riley Durkin won the No. 1 match, 8-5, while Jake Coldren and Emilio Alvear won the No. 2 match, 8-1. The girls team (2-4) had a similar performance, losing all five singles matches but performing well in doubles.No. 1 Jackie Clairmont and Savannah Schuhmacher won, 8-4, while Regan Durkin and Daniela Santistevan did not finish their No. 2 match.The girls had some winnable matches slip away but again showed their strength in doubles, Bull said.The Dolphins are scheduled to host Coral Shores High School Tuesday at 3 p.m. Tuesday at the Marathon Community Park.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com KeysNet.com Keynoter 2B Saturday,March 2,2013 Public Meetings Scheduled by and with the City of Marathon forMarch 2013Please note that more than one Marathon City Council/Board/Committee membermay participate in the meetings listed.City Council City Manager Mike Cinque, MayorRogerHernstadt Richard Keating, Vice MayorCity Attorneys Dick Ramsay, CouncilmemberGray-Robinson Chris Bull, Councilmember GingerSnead, Councilmember CITYOFMARATHONSUBJECT : DA TE: TIME: LOCA TION: Nearshore Waters Committee03/07/136:00pmMarathon Fire Station, 8900 Overseas Hwy.

There was a questionable play at first base in the inning that sent Dolphins fans already miffed by ballsand-strikes calls into an uproar. Assistant coach Bob Roney (Jordans father) wasnt happy, either, and when he flung his cap he was ejected.In the bottom of the fifth, Raquel Schoneck walked, stole second and raced home on a hit by her sister Lauren. She dove around Katz, the ex-Conch catcher who had survived an earlier collision, then came back and touched the plate before getting up and jumping into the arms of coach Steve Wells as Conch fans roared with delight. Osterhoudt then drove a Roney pitch off the top of the left-field fence to score Lauren Schoneck. That abruptly, the Conchslongdelayed first home game of the season ended, 13-3, called because of the 10-run mercy rule. Marathon fans milled around afterward, still angry with the umpiring. One berated Key West Principal Amber Bosco, who had walked away after trying to sympathize with him. Wells was elated with his teams hitting.My girls always get up for Jordan, he said. Osterhoudt, aglow and ankle deep in the orange infield muck, talked about the rivalry between the teams. Theres no animosity, she said. Off the field, were all good friends.The long night was over. The teams filed out, the Conchs savoring a 4-1 record, the Dolphins contemplating a 4-4 mark. It began to rain. From Softball,1Bthis week against St. Brendan and Archbishop Curley (results pending at press time).TennisThe Lady Canes tennis lineup swept Key West High School, 7-0, in a Thursday match to remain unbeaten in team play at 6-0. Erica Williams scored an 8-0 decision at No. 1 to set the tone. We had a solid effort across the board, Cane coach Blake Fry said. Key West is much improved and played us tough at No. 3 and No. 5 but we kept the pressure on. Maria Lozada at No. 5 was down 2-5 but rallied to tie and win a pro-set 7-2 tiebreaker. Shes a fighter, Fry said. Other Lady Cane winners were unbeaten No. 2 Ellie Leopold, 8-3; No. 3 Juliana Penne, 8-4; No. 4 Rachael Walters, 8-1; No. 1 doubles Williams-Penne, 8-1; and No. 2 doubles LeopoldWalters, 8-2. Key West boyswon, 6-1. No. 2 Sam Nelson scored the lone Cane win. Coral Shores travels to Marathon on Tuesday. From Coral Shores,1BConchs still perfect at 6-0When Key West High junior Darren Miller came to the plate with the bases loaded and the Conchs trailing, 3-0, in the fourth inning Tuesday at Dade Christian in Miami, coach Miguel Menendez had a good feeling. And why not? In the previous game last Saturday against Royal Palm Beach, Miller had come through with a triple and sacrifice fly with the bases full. So why not a grand slam this time? I knew how hot he had been, so I expected him to come through in that spot and to hit it out, Menendez said. Miller drove a Nick Haber pitch over the centerfield fence, a homer that was all the undefeated Conchs needed in a 6-3 victory over the Crusaders that extended their record to 6-0. Entering the game with a .600 on-base percentage, Miller also doubled and stole two bases. His slam came after Greg Veliz and Steven Wells had drawn walks, and Andrew Freeman had been hit by a pitch. The Conchs had fallen behind, 3-0, in the first, when Connor Morris hit a three-run homer off sophomore lefthander Brandon Presley. The home run was one of only three hits allowed by Presley, who settled down to retire 15 of the next 17 batters. He gave way to Chris Garcia, who retired the side in order in the seventh. He showed a lot of character, Menendez said of Presley. It would have been easy to be down after the start he had, but instead he pitched as well as he could after that. Key West, which had only five hits, added two runs in the fifth on an RBI single by Chris Varela and an error. Wells singled in the sixth to extend his regular-season hitting streak to six games. The comeback did not surprise Menendez, who said, Our kids have shown an ability to keep fighting and to battle every pitch. That is the one quality I admire about this group. The things that we preach as a coaching staff are the things that they excel at.

Acommunity outreach project is coming to fruition this month as 315 canvases forming a patchwork quilt are to travel throughout the Keys in a celebration called Connections Project: A Mosaic of the Keys. Its a project of the Florida Keys Council of the Arts with partners Art Reach, Artists in Schools, the Key West Writers Guild Award and the Tropic Cinema. The six-inch-by-six-inchinch canvases are to be hung together in a 24-foot mural that will travel from Key Largo to Key West over five weeks, starting Wednesday at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center lobby, mile marker 102.5 bayside. It ends April 5, at the Gato Building, 1100 Simonton St., Key West. Each of six different displays open with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. with hors doeuvres, wine and beer. The Key Largo reception is sponsored by the Friends of the Key Largo Cultural Center, who invite art lovers to stay for the 8 p.m. opening-night performance of Song Man, Dance Man. The individual squares reflect the Keys, say organizers. Photography, fabric, collage and paints were possible decorations. Workshops staffed by volunteers were held throughout the Keys in February to encourage the widest possible participation.In the Upper Keys, many members of the Art Guild of the Purple Isles painted a mosaic, as did County Commissioner Sylvia Murphy of Key Largo.I agreed to participate because its something Ive never done, said Murphy. Ocean Reef Art League members joined in, making the connections project a true representation of all of the Keys. Modeled after a Door County, Wis., mosaic project, $30 reserves one of the artworks, which is awarded through a blind buy system. That is, the patrons will not know which mosaic theyll receive. Arandomly selected number system assigns the buyer an original artwork, which will be delivered by mail in April. Canvases may be purchased at each reception or through the Council of the Arts (295-4369). Additional Mosaic locations are March 11 to 15 at Royal Furniture in Marathon; March 16 to 21 at the Islamorada Morada Way Arts District and Walkabout; March 22 to 25 at Artists in Paradise on Big Pine Key; and March 26 to 30 at Royal Furniture in Key West. Receptions at the above locations are March 13 in Marathon, March 21 in Islamorada, March 23 on Big Pine and March 28 in Key West.

Steamed clams deliver bigHow about some Asian steamed clams or mussels with broccoli rabe? Id love to claim that this wonderful recipe required hours of arduous research and testing (not to mention the expert application of all of my hard-won culinary skills) before I was able to settle on the exact proportions of its ideal ingredients. But Id be lying. In truth, I had almost nothing to do with it. The clams did it. Certain ingredients make meals delicious with very little effort on your part. Really, youd have to be an idiot to screw them up. Clams and mussels are especially generous, delivering a one-two punch of taste thrills: The succulent bivalves themselves and the deeply flavorful juices that stream out of them when theyre cooked. My favorite way to mess with clams is to steam them, as in this recipe. You toss all the ingredients into a pot, pile on the clams, put on the lid, crank up the heat, and presto! Ten minutes later the dish is done. The only problem is that the clam liquor at the bottom of the pot is so tasty that Im forced to sop it up with slice after slice of bread.Thats why I decided to bulk up this dish with broccoli rabe, a healthy and savory vegetable that absorbs some of the clam liquor as it cooks (though the clam liquor that remains still cries out for at least a slice or two of toasted country-style bread).As a way of blunting the vegetables slightly bitter edge, your first step with broccoli rabe is to blanch it. Cut off the tough ends of the stems, then boil it all in a large pot of salted water for two minutes. Next, drain it and transfer it to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking and set the color. Finally, chop it crosswise into pieces about half-inch thick. The garlic, chili sauce, ginger and sesame oil in the broth are complements strong enough to stand up to the robustness of the broccoli rabe.After insisting above that theres no way to screw up cooking with clams, Ive got to emphasize one crucial step, a step to ensure that the little guys turn out tender: You need to remove each clam from the pot as it opens up.The first ones will be good to go after four or five minutes. The last clam might stay clammed up until five or six minutes later, by which time the first clams if youd left them in would be horribly tough.Thats it. Quick, easy, nutritious, delicious and satisfying. Try it and see if you dont end up happier than a clam.What youll need:Two tablespoons vegetable oil.One tablespoon grated or finely chopped fresh ginger.Half a cup finely chopped scallions (white and green parts).Three large cloves garlic, minced.One teaspoon Chinese chili sauce (or your favorite hot sauce).Half a cup dry white wine.Half a cup low-sodium chicken broth.Three dozen littleneck clams or two pounds of mussels, scrubbed well.Half a teaspoon sesame oil.Three cups blanched and coarsely chopped broccoli rabe.Eight thick slices country-style bread, toasted.In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium high. Add the ginger, scallions and garlic and saute for one minute. Add the chili sauce, white wine, chicken broth and clams. Cover tightly and cook until the clams start to open.As they open, transfer the clams to a bowl. It will take seven to 10 minutes for all the clams to open. Discard any clams that do not open. Keep the saucepan over medium heat. Return the clams and any liquid in the bowl to the pan. Add the broccoli rabe, then cook just until heated through. Add the sesame oil and stir well.Divide the clams and broccoli rabe, along with the cooking liquid, between four shallow soup bowls. Serve each bowl with a few slices of toasted bread and a soup spoon.Start to finish: 30 minutes. Servings: Four.

Although the park was established to protect wildlife, park managers issued the U.S. Army a permit to build the base within the park. In 1966, ABattery moved to the permanent missile site, HM69, inside the park. Official military use was terminated in 1979. It is now listed on the U.S. Department of the Interiors National Register of Historic Places. Volunteers are invited to join park staff to help preserve and restore for future generations the site, which holds an important place in U.S. history. Volunteers will remove brush and weeds from the fence line, launch sites and berms surrounding the missile barns. There will also be a chance for some volunteers to clean the old equipment that is on display inside the barn and sweep inside. Volunteers will also will get a tour of the Nike Missile Site (if numbers allow). Its a good project for anyone seeking to earn community-service learning hours. Anyone under age 18 must get approval from a parent or legal guardian. Volunteers will meet at 9 a.m. in the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center parking lot. After leaving there, they will follow park staff in a caravan of personal vehicles through the entrance station to the Nike Missile Site. The normal entry fee will be waived for volunteers accompanied by park staff. Park staff will wait about 15 minutes for anybody who shows up a little late, but anybody later will miss out due to the lack of staff to make multiple trips. So volunteers are urged to be punctual Be prepared for hot and humid weather. Participants are required to wear longsleeved shirts, sneakers and long pants to protect against exposure to sun, biting insects, poisonwood and ivy. Also, bring lunch, a refillable water bottle, hat and sunglasses. Be equipped for rain. There is no set end time; however most work projects last from three to five hours. There is no bathroom on the Nike Missile Site; the closest facilities will require volunteers to drive to them. Volunteers will receive a free entry pass, allowing you to visit Everglades National Park for free again. The Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center is at 40001 State Road 9336, Homestead. Coming north from the Keys, make a left at the Palm Avenue traffic light in Florida City and follow the signs to the park.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 6B Saturday,March 2,2013 Lets start at the very beginningAvery good place to startWhen you read, you begin with Child (Gretyl): ABCJulie Andrews made famous the role of Maria from The Sound of Music.And anyone whos seen the 1965 film wont soon forget the childrensvoices singing the Do-Re-Mi song, which begins with the excerpt above. The Marathon Community Theatre, in an ambitious undertaking, brings the much-loved story to the stage for a month-long run starting March 7. Rehearsals for adult and youth players have been under way for months. And the attention will focus on the young actors who portray the von Trapp children: Zachary Perry as Friedrich the eldest son, Jessica Dake as Louisa, Bethany Roberts as the precocious Brigitta and Lucy Segard as Marta. Jacob Wilinski plays the youngest von Trapp son, Kurt, and Juliet Espinal is the youngest daughter, Gretl. The oldest von Trapp child, Liesl, is played by MCTactress Kara Pascucci, who also helped produce the Summer Stage pilot program last year where many of the young actors performed in The Marathon Cheese Police. The Sound of Music features community theater vet Gail Burnett as the highspirited Maria, Jerry Nussenblatt as Captain von Trapp, Marilyn Tempest as the Mother Abbess, Heidi Ferrel as Elsa Schraeder and Xavier McKnight as Rolf the telegram delivery boy. The ensemble cast includes Timmy Brown and Danielle Wilinski as the Duet from Herwegen; Karen Diehl as Fraulein Schweiger; Drew Dzkewicz as Herr Zeller; Mimzie Wilinski as Frau Schmidt; John Pabon as Franz the Butler; Natalie Ehrig as a new Postulant and Frau Zeller; Tricia Brown as Sister Anna and Baroness Elberfeld; Sara Engle as Sister Sophia; and Mary Ann Wimmer as Sister Berthe and a party guest. The Sound of Music was the final collaboration by Rogers and Hammerstein. The story takes place in Austria at the start of World War II. One of the most popular film musicals of all time, it starred Julie Andrews as a novitiate who becomes governess to a large family in 1930s Austria and charms both her charges and their father (Christopher Plummer). The film won five Oscars Best Picture, Best Director, Best Sound, Best Score and Best Editing. Best-known songs from the musical include Do Re Mi, My Favorite Things, and the title song The Sound of Music. It is the story of Maria, too high-spirited for the religious life, dispatched to serve as governess for seven children of a widowed The Sound of Music coming to MarathonAmbitious musical takes the stage March 7 to April 6Cast of The Sound of Musicincludes Gail Burnett playing Maria,along with the von Trapp kids.LAttitudes Staff Elsa,Max and the Captain during dress rehearsal for The Sound of Music, which runs March 7 to April 6 at Marathon Community Theatre.See Sound,8BBig cast brings energy to this s-era musicalThe Drowsy Chaperone, a modern-day spin on musicals of old, opens March 7 at The Waterfront Playhouse. Gorgeous 1920s-style costumes, designed by Kurt Alger, have been rented from the Maine State Music Theater for this major production, which is a musical within a comedy. On Broadway, The Drowsy Chaperone won a Tony Award. The New York Observer described it as smashing, witty and brilliant. I loved every mad minute of it. Chaperone features more than 250 costumes, an ornate set and a big cast of 18 that includes some of Key Wests best-known musical theater talent. The story begins with a reclusive musical theater fan, who chases the blues away by playing the album of his favorite musical, the 1928 hit The Drowsy Chaperone. When he drops the needle on the record, the show literally bursts to life in his drab apartment, morphing into a lavish Broadway musical. This fictional musical of The Drowsy Chaperone tells the tale of a Broadway starlet who must decide between her stage career and her true love. Mix-ups, mayhem and a gay wedding (in the old-fashioned sense of the word) accelerate the action on stage. The show also features a roster of hilarious 1920s musical character-types: the starlets debonair groom, a Latin lover, a ditzy chorine, a Broadway impresario, gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a befuddled dowager, her English butler and a chaperone who isnt so much drowsy as she is tipsy.

Jon Peterson has a string of credits on Broadway and the London stage. He performed the emcee role in the Broadway revival of Cabaret, as well as grabbing a Drama Desk nomination for his role OffBroadway in George M. Cohan Tonight! Peterson brings his song and dance chops to the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center for a limited engagement March 6-9. Tickets cost $20 at the door.

He got his start as a child actor, performing as the Artful Dodger in David Leans 1948 film, Oliver Twist.

Mel Fisher curators say the Harry PottersWorld exhibit includes artifacts from shipwrecks recovered by Fisher and his crews off the coast of Key West.Artifacts include Renaissance swords, surgical tools, cooking pots, and a solid gold poison cup all of which were found from the Atocha shipwreck site. The cup once held a bezoar stone, which ancients believed could neutralize poison. The word bezoar comes from Persian and means antidote. In the Potter series, bezoar stones are used by the magical community for a similar reason. The Harry Potters World exhibit also features an authentic mariners astrolabe, a device used for thousands of years by astronomers and sailors. The astrolabe most likely inspired Rowlings fictional Time-Turner used in the Harry Potter series. In conjunction with the exhibit, the museum is offering a special Muggle Studies education series to explore the science and lore of wind, stars, and sea turtles. These classes are appropriate for a range of ages and are offered separately throughout the spring or as part of the museums Spring Break childrens classes, March 25-28. I will also be going into the classrooms to offer these special classes, said Shannon Burgess, the museums education coordinator. Its a great way to introduce students to science and history by using a story that they already love. The Mel Fisher Maritime Museum, located at 200 Greene St., is open daily. Locals can ask for a half-price discount with a valid Monroe County ID. Harry Potters World and the museums Renaissance programming are expected to continue through August On display throughout the museum are rare and authentic Renaissance artifacts recovered from the Spanish galleons Nuestra Senora de Atocha and Santa Margarita which sank off the coast of Key West in 1622. The museum is also reviving Museum Movie Night, on Wednesday nights throughout March. These are free movies shown in the museums courtyard that range from fun classics to specials that feature the shipwrecks that the Mel Fisher Museum is most known for, adds Melissa Kendrick, the museums CEO.
