And the Long Key Bridge around mile marker 65 has been the scene of three crashes since March 1.Tuesday around 7:05 a.m., James Hightower, 67, of Islamorada was driving a 2004 Ford F-150 northbound on U.S. 1s inside lane and, for unknown reasons, according to the Florida Highway Patrol, drove off the road at mile marker 99 and struck a traffic sign and bushes before crashing into a former Kentucky Fried Chicken.Hightower was pronounced dead at Mariners Hospital and became the Keysseventh traffic fatality of the year. That came fewer than 12 hours after another crash around the same location that ultimately resulted in the closing of the Stretch and the arrest of Homestead resident Lenna Danker, 57, on five misdemeanor counts two drunk-driving related. According to state troopers, Danker was driving a 2012 Nissan Rogue SUV around 7 p.m. when she was involved in a hit-and-run at mile marker 99, apparently striking a 2013 Chrysler 300.Fifteen minutes later, troopers say, Danker had made her way to the Stretch and at mile marker 111 steered the vehicle right, colliding into the east concrete barrier wall. The car then overturned three times traveling in a northerly direction.Danker was taken to Mariners Hospital in Tavernier,Within 12 hours, Islamorada man dies in Key Largo, Stretch closedBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comDRIVING U.S.1 Services set forthe late Sen. BullardServices are planned for Friday and Saturday for Larcenia Bullard, a former state senator who represented the Florida Keys from 2002 to 2012.Bullard, 65, died Saturday. Details about her death were not immediately known, although she did suffer from a previous heart condition and was absent from her Tallahassee office for a portion of her last year in office.Asorority service will be held at 5 p.m. Friday followed by a litany service at 7, both at the Church of the Ascension on SW160th Street in Miami. Funeral services are set for Saturday at 11 a.m. at the South Dade Cultural Arts Center on SW211th Street in Miami. Bullards family asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Rachel and Edward Bullard Jr. Foundation.Bullard was a Democrat who was succeeded in office following last Novembers election by her son, Dwight, also a Democrat, so he now represents the Keys in the Legislatures upper house.She was known as a popular and gregarious figure in Tallahassee, although in the Keys, her reputation was for not paying attention to the island chain, especially when it came to pursuing money for sewer construction. Bullard served in the Florida House from 1992 to 2000 and in the Senate from 2002 to 2012, when she was term-limited out. Her husband, Ed, replaced her in the House and served from 2000 to 2008. Dwight Bullard then won the House seat, serving until 2012, when he ran for and was elected to the Senate in a match vs. former state Rep. Ron Saunders (D-Key West). Gov. Rick Scott issued a statement saying Larcenia Bullard represented the families of South Florida with passion and integrity. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those close to her and the rest of Florida as we honor a woman who put her constituents first.She represented the Florida Keys for a decadeNews Service of FloridaSTATE LEGISLATURE BULLARD City rethinking parking programWith tightly packed metered parking, centralized pay stations, public and private lots and resident-specific spaces, finding a spot in Old Town Key West is a constant challenge for residents and visitors alike.To that end, the Key West City Commission will hold a workshop tonight designed to discuss problems and potential solutions while soliciting public input. Its scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street.The meeting will be anchored by a presentation from city Parking Manager John Wilkins, who will present several options that, if approved, would dramatically change parking in the Southernmost City. The residential metered program lets residents purchase a one-year $106 permit that allows them to park in metered spaces on their block; about 50 people hold those permits. In materials prepared for the workshop, Wilkins suggests eliminating that program, which he estimates costs the city some $275,000 per year. Thats calculated based on a 30-cent daily fee associated with the $106 pass compared to the $2 hourly rate charged at meters. The rationale: One of the goals of metered parking is quick turnover of parkingBig changes likely coming for Old TownBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTBay likely to dominate session tonightEverglades National Park managers can expect to hear a lot today about a proposal to protect the shallows of Florida Bay.National Park Service staff opens its first Florida Keys comment session on recommended changes to its Everglades management plan at 5:30 today at Coral Shores High School in Tavernier.The preferred alternative plan says that extremely shallow areas covering about a third of Florida Bay would be managed as poleand-troll (non-combustion engine use) zones while still providing traditional access and use through the channels and deeper basins. Several Upper Keys fishing guides worry that could place popular areas off limits and close well-known channels through the flats. Were pretty much concerned with everything in there about Florida Bay, Key Largo Fishing Guides Association president Kerry Wingo said Tuesday.The Key Largo guides group was working with other fishing groups to prepare a statement for todays meeting.They want to keep everybody except kayakers and canoes out of Long Sound, Wingo said of the sheltered water off the west side of U.S. 1 near the Miami-Dade County line.Park Service in Keys for local commentEVERGLADES NATIONAL PARKBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgSee Crashes,2ASee Bullard,2BSee Parking,3ASee Everglades,2A
Post-Acevedo, Adult Ed reboundingFour years after Monique Acevedos six-figure theft from the Monroe County School Districts Adult Education Department, the program she ran has stabilized under a new director and could potentially expand.Acevedo, whose husband Randy was then the superintendent, was arrested in April 2009 and subsequently convicted of stealing $201,424 in student tuition payments from Adult Ed. She was sentenced to eight years in prison while Randy, whom then-Gov. Charlie Crist removed from office, was convicted of official misconduct and received probation.The program drifted under the two short-time superintendents that succeeded Acevedo and Adult Ed itself went through two changes in directors in less than three years. Since last summer, Melanie Stefanowicz has taken charge as adult and alternative education director and Superintendent Mark Porter said she is doing an outstanding job.As Porter gathers community input for a long-term strategic plan for the district, he has mentioned several times the need to expand career and technical education, which falls under the auspices Adult Ed.Career/technical education is a goal of the strategic plan, Porter said. I think we will see an increased emphasis on that. He said one challenge was aligning all three Keys public high schools on a seven-period schedule. Key West High School and Marathon High School have six-period day schedules, which Porter said is not opening up opportunity sufficiently enough.In response to a comment at a recent public meeting complaining that Monroe graduates arent properly trained in basic work skills like counting change, Porter said he wants the quality of our graduates to be reflected in the quality of the workforce.Stefanowicz said there are 270 students enrolled in adult education programs, including 27 co-enrolled high school students taking classes at one of six locations in the county.Offerings include General Education Development test prep; adult high school for students beyond high school age who prefer a traditional diploma to a GED; English as a Second Language classes; civics courses; and cosmetology classes including nail and facial specialties.For instance, aspiring nail technicians can take a semester-long class meeting three times a week for $722 tuition, plus the purchase of tools and a textbook.During a March 12 School Board discussion, board member Ed Davidson said its important give students options to learn marketable skills. Weve been telling students for generations you can be whatever you want to be, he said.

He was born to the late John and Mary (Crow) Main in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Nov. 24,1935. Mr. Main was the owner and operator of Mains Flower Garden, a family nursery business, in New Haven, Indiana for over 50 years. He enjoyed his winters in The Florida Keys with his family where he was a commercial fisherman for many years. Mr. Main loved traveling, camping, fishing, gardening, and most of all, his beautiful family. Mr. Main is survived by his wife of 47 years Germaine (Inman) Main of Marathon, Florida and seven children: Luetta Burlage of St. Joe, In; Mary Jo Chaffins of Auburn, In; Joseph Main Jr. of Ft. Wayne, In. Patrick Main of Ft. Wayne, In; Russell Main Sr. of New Haven, In; Jeffrey Main of Marathon, Florida; and Jaime Main of Hood River, Oregon. Mr. Main is also survived by 26 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren and by his sister Joan Finton of Roanoke, In. He is preceded in death by daughter Janice Koch; son Joseph Charles Main; three brothers John Main, James Main, and Richard Main; former wife Gloria Ann Boyles; and three grandchildren. Memorial service will be at San Pablos Church in Marathon, Sat., March 23rd, at 10am. where she refused to submit to a breath test. However, a blood draw shows she had a .23 blood alcohol level, nearly three times the .08 legal limit. And in her car, troopers say they found quarter-full bottle of Patron tequila and antidepressants.The Stretch remained closed for about two hours; traffic was diverted to Card Sound Road. Dankers charged with driving under influence, DUI-property damage, leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving and refusing a breath test. On March 12 around 10:15 a.m., a motorcyclist died after getting thrown from his bike on the Seven Mile Bridge after clipping a riding mates tire.Troopers say Colorado residents Chris Leaf and Jim Luckeroth were riding HarleyDavidsons north on the bridge and attempted to use the southbound lane to overtake traffic in front of them.Leaf, 45, reportedly followed Luckeroth, 56, into the passing lane, but Luckeroth slowed when he noticed a police car up ahead. He decided to slow down and pull behind the police vehicle, troopers said.Leaf apparently couldnt stop his 2011 Harley in time, striking the rear tire of Luckeroths 2008 bike. Leafs bike reportedly fell onto its side and he was thrown from it onto the road. Leaf, of Kersey, Colo., was taken to Fishermens Community Hospital in Marathon before being airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami, where he was later pronounced dead. Luckeroth, of Greeley, Colo., wasnt injured. As for the Long Key Bridge, its been a dangerous place to drive. Troopers said that around 8:20 p.m. Saturday, 22-yearold Jacksonville resident Rebecca Ucciardo was driving a 2000 Chrysler south in the northbound lane and nearly collided head-on with Tamarac, resident Horatio Smith, 62, who was driving a 1999 Toyota. The two ended up striking the bridges walls. Ucciardo and her passenger, Molly Batchelor, 22, were injured. Smith wasnt but his passenger, 52-year-old Clara Samuels, was. The bridge was also the site of a March 8 afternoon crash (details unavailable) and a five-car pileup on March 1 that closed the span for hours.Crashes aboundFrom Crashes,1A Theres a lot of deep water in there and thats an area where a lot of Key Largo guides go for half-day trips, Wingo said. Some of the larger poleand-troll zones limit feasible skiff access, he said. There are some channels they want to close that we think should be left open.Aprototype pole-or-troll area covering 9,400 acres in Snake Bight near Flamingo was designated in early 2011.Careful examination of damage and threats to natural and submerged wilderness features, and patterns of visitor use, pointed to the need for a new strategy, Park Superintendent Dan Kimball said in a statement. Wingo said, If they limit access to the pole-and-troll zones, that could concentrate boat traffic in other areas, causing congestion and possible more damage.Todays session and an April 10 event at Key Largos Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center will start with time for visitors to examine materials. An overview presentation will be made by park staff, followed by a comment session.Guides concernedFrom Everglades,1A Bullards Senate district represented a sprawling territory that started in the Keys and extended up into Hendry and Palm Beach counties. She easily won her House races and prevailed in tough Senate primaries in 2002 and 2004. In 2002, she beat four other Democrats, while in 2004 she held off Saunders in his first try at winning the Senate seat for a Keysbased representative.Bullard is fondly recalledFrom Bullard,1B$200K carcant fend off arrestCounterfeit drivers licenses have been plentiful in the Florida Keys during college Spring Break season this year. But not many are seized from the man behind the wheel of a high-powered Mercedes sports car reportedly valued at $200,000. Zhihao Yang, 20, a Chinese citizen living in Bloomington, Ind., was arrested March 13 on Boca Chica in the Lower Keys after Monroe County Sheriffs Office Deputy Greg Korzen stopped the Mercedes SLS AMG, which was speeding at up to 116 mph in a 55 mph zone. The Mercedes was clearly racing a lowered Honda Civic equipped for highspeed handling, the deputy said. He spotted the cars speeding south near mile marker 8 on U.S. 1 and pursued them to near marker 5. The Mercedes driver gave Korzen a fictitious drivers license ... manufactured by International Automobile Drivers Co., apparently purchased through an Internet site. The fictitious Indiana drivers license was in the name of Chaotic Huang, with a photo that appeared to be the driver. There was also a credit card with the same name. Yang was arrested for not having a valid license, road racing and presenting fake identification. The Mercedes reportedly was rented by another person for $1,000 per day. The Honda driver, Miguel A. Blanco, 21, of Cape Coral was ticketed for speeding and racing, and given a notice to appear in court.Driver busted when caught racing HondaLOWER KEYS YANGKeynoter Staff Rowells a board priorityAclosed Key Largo marina that now serves as a popular community events field could draw the interest of Monroe County commissioners.When the County Commission meets today at the Marathon Government Center, County Administrator Roman Gastesi will ask commissioners if they want to investigate the feasibility and cost of adding the former Rowells Marina to county holdings.Rowells Marina, on bayside property at mile marker 104.5, was purchased by condominium developers during the realestate bubble in the early 2000s but construction never started. The mostly vacant site still provides a scenic venue for a range of festivals, concerts and even a circus.In a meeting agenda summary, Gastesi said residents frequently ask him about quality-of-life projects throughout the Keys namely, Rowells Marina, the long-planned Higgs Beach expansion in Key West estimated to cost $6 million, and the expensive rehabilitation of the old Seven Mile Bridge, which is closed to auto traffic and fishing.As the county staff develops a long-term capital plan, a detailed knowledge of what is required by each of these projects is essential for proper evaluation, the report says. In other items reaching the board at its 9 a.m. session at the Marathon Government Center at mile marker 48.5:Commissioners will nominate six residents to serve on the local RESTORE Act advisory panel to consider Florida Keys projects that may be eligible for funding under a portion of the BP Deepwater Horizon settlements.County Mayor George Neugent selected Key West businessman Ed Swift and commercial-fishing representative Bill Kelly.Other nominees and their sponsors include Florida Keys Community College marine instructor Patrick Rice (Commissioner Danny Kolhage), Lower Keys banker Todd German (Heather Carruthers), retired Coral Shores High School marine-science teacher David Makepeace (David Rice), and retired Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary regional manager John Halas (Sylvia Murphy).Commissioners will consider a process to select five canals to serve as pilot projects for a canal-restoration project expected to eventually reach hundreds of Florida Keys canals. The pilot programs will test various types of water-quality improvements in different settings.An $86,000 project to restore about four acres of disturbed hardwood hammock in the Dagny Johnson Hammock State Park to serve as mitigation for habitat used in constructing the Key Largo wastewater treatment plant.Commission meets today in Middle KeysMONROE COUNTYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS
Painted bright orange and measuring 20 feet long, an unmanned military aircraft drifted about 800 miles through Florida waters before being recovered Sunday off Key Largo. Its like a big, remotecontrol airplane with a jet engine, said Steve Powers of Sea Tow-Key Largo, the salvor who recovered the target drone owned by the U.S. Air Force. Ive never seen one like it, Powers said Tuesday. Its a first for me. Boaters who alerted the U.S. Coast Guard about the possible hazard to navigation were warned to stay away from it. But boaters who avoided hitting the aircraft officially a BQM-167AAir Force Subscale Aerial Target were in no real danger. This target is used to be shot at. It doesnt do the shooting, said Lt. Col. Lance Wilkins, commander of the 82nd Aerial Targets Squadron at Tyndall Air Force Base near Panama City in the Panhandle. The Air Force sent a truck to Key Largo to recover the $570,000 flying drone so it can be refurbished to fly again. As soon as we heard, we had people on the way, Wilkins said. All of the Air Forces BQM-167s about 30 of them are based at Tyndall so the jet-powered drones can test and evaluate air-toair weapons, the effectiveness of counter-measures during sorties and the effectiveness of the weapons systems, an Air Force news story reported. The aircraft reach speeds of 600 knots at sea level, flying from 50 feet above ground level to 50,000 feet. Typically the target drones deploy a parachute and wind up in the designated Gulf of Mexico W151 Live-Fire Range, about 45 to 85 miles off the Panhandle, where the militarys teams recover them. Since 2007, we have launched BQM-167s over 600 times, Wilkins said. Only 16 targets have been lost, and nine of those have been found. The drone found bobbing in about 15 feet of water a mile off the Port Largo Canal went down in late January, and apparently was carried by Gulf currents to the Florida Straits. Built of carbon fiber and other composite material, the drones weigh relatively little when not carrying fuel. They can be equipped with target payloads that indicate electronically when they have been hit by attackers during drills. They also can fire chaff to confuse systems trying to target them. You would think that they would have awesome beacon tracking or at least GPS enabled on the thing, said Roger Grimes, who of the boaters who radioed the Coast Guard. Safety is paramount to everything we do here in the 82nd, Wilkins said. Its our intent to remove these from the water as quickly as possible in order to ensure the safety of the Gulf and its mariners. spaces to provide more customers to the business district. However, residents with this permit frequently do not move their vehicles for days because of the difficulty in finding a parking space in their block when they return. The other option Wilkins laid out considers raising the fee to $100 per month.Commissioner Jimmy Weekley, whose District 1 includes the bulk of the citys parking problems, focused on the impact of tourists and employees visiting Duval Street and the Key West Bight creating tie-ups on adjacent Frances, William, Margaret and Elizabeth streets.The residents are so impacted by the visitors and workers and people going out and doing the night life that dont want to park in lots, he said. Addressing the piece involving people commuting to Old Town for work, Wilkins suggests rethinking the citys employee assistance parking program, which allows for employees to park at any metered spots for $100 per month.The option up for discussion tonight would reduce the fee to $25 per month and limit parking to lots on Caroline Street at the bight and on Angela Street at City Hall.Also up for consideration is the residential parking program, which allows anyone with a Monroe County license plate to park in any non-metered space marked residential. Wilkins suggests limiting that access to residents of the historic district and setting a permit fee.Parking regulations up for an overhaulFrom Parking,1A Wednesday,March 20,2013 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com 9 Ct.Tanzanite W/Diamonds Peter Max Ladies 18K Pearlmaster, Diamonds Marc Chagall Large Diamonds Rolex Watches Itzak Tarkay H.C.

Thats for when a planned hearing over the estate of Joseph Ardolinos failure to connect to Marathons new central wastewater system has been rescheduled. It had been slated for March 13. Warner represents the estate, owner of the former Overseas Liquor & Lounge property near mile marker 49. He claims it has no money to connect because the city stopped it from reopening a bar and package store there. It was last open in 2008. Warner has said he plans on making a show of the hearing, but city officials say its a matter of course.City officials say any property owner in the city that doesnt hook up to the sewer system receives a letter from the citys Utilities Department giving them 365 days notice. The Overseas property was one of many to receive such a letter.City Manager Roger Hernstadt, said the Overseas365-day window expires on March 31. After that, the estate has 15 days to apply for a permit before being placed on the May 8 Code Board agenda. The permit is for a lateral connection to the sewer system, for which all city property owners are responsible. Then they have the life of the permit to do the connection, which is 365 days, Hernstadt said, adding the permit fee is $85. Warner has been claiming the city is making a deliberate effort to target the Overseas building. He made an extensive public records request on Feb. 14 asking for city communications regarding the Ardolino estate. City staff did not receive word of the request until Feb. 19, but Warner has said the unsafe-structure tagging of Overseas property manager Steven Debreckis trailer behind the main building on Feb. 14 was very strange. Warners request came days before the FBI requested numerous city documents, most of which were related to Planning Commissioner and Marathon Liquor & Deli owner Ralph Lucignano.

This may be an opportunity to offer viable alternatives to the risky and damaging zip-line proposal. I was extremely disappointed that Crane Points membership was excluded from the decision-making process that resulted in pursuing funding for the zip-line project starting in early 2011. I stopped leading nature walks in Crane Point and withdrew my membership support.Responding to Crane Points new openness, I had a cordial meeting recently with Director of Operations Loretta Geotis. I encourage other Crane Point supporters and members (current and former) to join me by writing to the Land Trust board at Loretta@cranepoint.net. Tell them you oppose the zip line and that you would welcome the opportunity to work with them in the future to uncover and implement ideas that are appropriate for the site and consistent with the Land Trusts mission.Crane Point Hammock is a natural jewel in the center of Marathon worth all of us working together to protect.

This could not have been made possible if it werent for the support of Daniel Samess, John Bartus, Rachel Glover, Jimmy Schmidt, Tom Coppedge, Bennett Orr, Cliff Rydell, Justin Burroughs and Mike Puto. The spirit of cooperation and generosity of our Marathon community is second to none. Janine Mothner, Suzy Curry and Charlotte Quinn MarathonLimit military gunsAs a long-time certified law enforcement officer in Florida and, before that, trained and certified in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve and U.S. Air Force in automatic weapons, I am opposed to civilians having easy access to military-type automatic or semiautomatic weapons.Ammunition clips of more than 10 rounds should be prohibited for civilian use. The military-type weapons and their clips of more than 10 rounds should only be available to law enforcement agencies or those with special needs.The Republican Party and some Democrats reveal their votes have been bought by the manufacturers of guns and clips and supported by the National Rifle Association for money reasons. They should be removed from office at the next election. Dont give me this 2nd Amendment argument nobody is trying to take away your right to own a civilian-type weapon. My first weapon, at about age 10, was a double-barrel BB gun to shoot at the squirrel nest, to make them run, so my father could then shoot the squirrels running away with his 12-gauge shotgun for our meal that day. I then slowly progressed to being trained and then owned hunting weapons under the strict guidance of my father until I later entered the law enforcement field. I always carried or had my weapon nearby. Did I ever use my weapon? Its not important. I now enjoy retirement in the Florida Keys and do not feel the need to carry a firearm. Robert Page IslamoradaFix insurance messI have been trying to build a modular home for many years. Finally being able to start, Citizens Property Insurance Corp. decided to cancel builders risk insurance. I received a quote the other day on a six-month policy for $13,600. Once the house is completed, the cost is around $1,000 year. I know what Gov. Rick Scott is trying to do but how can I or any other working person afford to build a house with such a burden? I am hoping Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe and the rest of our representatives are working to get this fixed, and fixed soon. Thad Lovell Marathon Great schools and great communities simply go together. One of the essential elements of a successful school district is a vibrant and ongoing relationship with the citizens we serve. It is our responsibility to not only provide an outstanding education for our students, but to remain closely connected to the communities we serve and the people who make up those communities. Community engagement and effective communication are an important aspect of any great school system, but even more so during the process of developing a strategic plan.Next month, the Monroe County School District will begin the process of developing our five-year strategic plan. This planning process will be referred to as Charting the Course: Excellence in the Monroe County Schools. This will be a very involved and intensive process and will include many people as both community members and employees.Let me briefly outline the overall stages of this process. During March I will conduct six to seven community engagement sessions throughout Monroe County. Each of these sessions will be hosted by a community member, held in an appropriate school or community facility, and will be about 90 minutes long. I will briefly outline some of the strengths and challenges of the Monroe County schools, but will spend the majority of the time listening to our community members on what they want to see in their Monroe County schools. Dates, times and locations can be found at www.keysschools.com Information and input collected from these community engagement sessions will be summarized and presented to the districts strategic planning team during our sessions in April.I am looking for 25 community members from across Monroe County to be part of this important team effort. This will be a selected group of individuals, 25 community members and 25 employees, to reflect the geographic and other rich diversity of the Monroe County schools. If you are interested in serving, you may complete an application online at www.keysschools.com/ plan or at any of the community engagement sessions.The strategic planning team will meet for a total of 12 hours during sessions on April 16 and 20. During this time, they will develop four to six large strategic objectives for Monroe County schools over the next five years. This work will then be passed along to action teams, those responsible for identifying the specific steps, actions, results and measurable outcomes to be established in the first 12 to 18 months of the strategic plan, all of which must be completed before the plan comes back before the School Board in June. Theres lots of work to be done. I need your help. Obviously, a plan by itself is of no real value. The value comes in the deployment and actions with expected outcomes that are implemented in accordance with the action plans and aligned with the strategic plan.The 2013-14 school year will be Year 1 of implementation of our strategic plan. It will be a year of transition as we seek to align our efforts and resources with the identified priorities of our strategic plan. While there are sure to be some new initiatives and refinement of ongoing efforts, there will also be the challenge of eliminating ineffective practices and efforts as well.In the second half of the 2013-14 school year we will have our first opportunity to truly use the strategic plan to formulate our budget and planning for the 2014-15 school year. Resourcing a strategic plan is a critical stage in the process. We will begin with the analysis and allocation of existing resources to align with the identified actions of the strategic plan, but it is also likely and foreseeable that we may need additional resources from our communities to support the efforts they have identified. While it is still too early to say for sure, I am quite confident that the Monroe County School District, with proper approval and authority of the School Board, may need to ask our communities to provide some additional resources to fully meet the priorities of our strategic plan. By the time this might happen, we would hope to have restored the trust and confidence of our communities so that we can once again proclaim that great schools and great communities simply go together. This is your call to action. Please join me in charting the course to excellence in Monroe County schools in whatever way you can. Mark Porter was hired last year as Monroe County School District superintendent.Some lawmakers in Legislature are stretching the bounds of what state government isThere is an interesting dichotomy at work among Republicans who populate the legislative halls in Tallahassee. The GOPphilosophy of less government often clashes with conservative thinking about the role of government in our everyday lives. Examples of this schizophrenia abound this session.Take House Bill 1163 as one example. Introduced by state Rep. Dennis Baxley (R-Ocala), the legislation would create a committee to advise people on how to stay married. Baxley said he was prompted to introduce this after realizing the state now does little to promote marriage.Yet, he noted, when couples apply for marriage licenses, the state gives them a marriage handbook prepared by The Florida Bar telling them how to get a divorce. We can do better. But should we? Is that really the states role in counseling people about marriage, or about divorce for that matter? Lawmakers gathered in Tallahassee also weighed in on red-light cameras last week (House Bill 1061). Basically, they dont like them and want to curb their use by cities and counties that deploy the devices at busy intersections, outright banning citations issued for improper turns on right where the only evidence comes from the cameras.Again, is that something we want the state to legislate? Or is traffic enforcement and use of red-light cameras best left to local governments, where voters can more easily be heard (and, in extreme cases, toss out council members or commissioners come election time)?The House Civil Justice Subcommittee on Monday approved House Bill 19, which gives grandparents a legal avenue to see grandchildren when visitation is denied. Again, the state wants to step into situations where the marriage has gone awry and spouses retaliate by denying visitation to one or the other set of grandparents.If youre confused about the less government mantra running smack into the face of more intrusion, join the long line of those who believe that Florida lawmakers introduce entirely too many bills, many of which have some special-interest backing, and with little regard for just common sense. Will Rogers, the Oklahoma-born humorist, famously said: This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer. Just take a look at whats happening in Tallahassee and you begin to wonder if Rogers had it right.Wayne Markham . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Publisher Larry Kahn . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Editor Richard Tamborrino . . .Advertising/New Bus.Dev.Dir.

Help chart Florida Keys schoolsfutureGUEST COLUMN PORTER Cuts cut into drug patrolsThe automatic federal spending cuts that have gone into effect because of Congressinability to agree on a budget could mean more illegal drugs from South America on U.S. streets. The U.S. Navy is pulling one of its frigates, the USS Thach from a multinational drug interdiction operation in the Caribbean known as Operation Martillo, and is canceling the deployment of another, the USS Rentz because federal agencies must collectively chop $85 billion from their budgets between now and Oct. 1.Amultinational joint military and federal law enforcement anti-drug smuggling operation lost a significant asset as a result of the automatic spending cuts that went into effect, said Lt. Cmdr. Corey Barker, spokesman for the Navys 4th Fleet.The Thach began patrolling with Operation Martillo, led by the U.S. militarys Southern Commands Joint Interagency Task Force South in Key West, in January. The Rentz had not yet begun its tour with the task force when the cuts, known as sequestration, kicked in.Operation Martillo has another frigate assigned to it, the USS Gary Some media organizations are reporting that it, too, has been pulled from the operation. Barker said he could not confirm the Gary s status. The absence of the frigates will place an added burden on the U.S. Coast Guard, whose commandant, Adm. Robert Papp, told the U.S. Naval Institute that the military is already stretched too thin in the Caribbean and eastern Pacific. He told USNI that special Coast Guard law enforcement teams launch their anti-smuggling operations from the frigates. Now they will have to rely on Coast Guard cutters, which are in short supply. We already dont have enough surface assets down there to interdict all of the drugs that are smuggled from South America into North America, Papp said. Operation Martillo includes members of all the U.S. military branches, as well as federal agencies like the Drug Enforcement Administration. Militaries from 14 Central American and European nations, as well as Canada, also participate in the program. Since the operation started in January 2012, task force members have seized more than 160 tons of cocaine, valued at around $4 billion, and 125 tons of marijuana, Barker said.Keys-based task force among affectedBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comMILITARYCAROLINE REBIRTH Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYConstruction has started at 951 Caroline St.in Key West on what will be a 13,500-squarefoot West Marine store,one of many pending major public and private developments on the major traffic and tourist corridor in Old Town.The city is planning a $670,000 enhancement that will include road and drainage improvements,new sidewalks and streetlights,the addition of several crosswalks,new trash and recycling containers, improved signs and landscaping.If youre confused about the less government mantra running smack into the face of more intrusion,join the long line of those who believe that Florida lawmakers introduce entirely too many bills.
Wednesday,March 20,2013 5A Keynoter KeysNet.com Business The complete Florida Keys news and information source.State jobless rate fallsFloridas jobless rate dipped slightly in January, but the tiny percentage-point decline marked a huge psychological milestone, state officials said Monday. In dropping from 7.9 percent in December to 7.8 percent in January, Floridas jobless rate went below the national rate, which was 7.9 percent in January, for the first time since January 2008. Gov. Rick Scott, who ran almost solely on a platform of lowering the states jobless rate, said its vindication that his lets get to work theme is succeeding. Everything we do is geared toward job creation. Today we have more proof that its working, Scott said in a prepared statement. Monroe County (the Florida Keys), which has a large government-sector workforce, continued to have the states lowest unemployment rate at 4.6 percent, followed by Walton, Alachua and Okaloosa counties, all at 6 percent or lower. Hendry County continued to struggle, with an 11.4 percent unemployment rate. Flagler, Putnam, Dixie and St. Lucie counties all had rates above 10 percent. In dropping to 7.8 percent, Floridas jobless rate is now at its lowest point since November 2008, near the beginning of the recession and down from more than 9 percent just a year ago. And rather than simply improving the rate by losing workers from the workforce as was the case with some earlier gains Floridas economy created jobs in January, the Department of Economic Opportunity said. There were 15,400 more jobs in January than in December, a 0.2 percent increase, putting total employment in the state at more than 7.4 million. Trade, transportation and utilities led the way in job growth among all sectors, DEO said. Atourism rebound is also starting to be evident. The hospitality industry continued to come back in January, with 3.5 percent growth in job creation, DEO said.By DAVID ROYSENews Service of FloridaTHE WORKFORCECruise ships change routesCruise-ship operator Carnival has changed two of its itineraries to skip scheduled port calls in Key West in favor of partnering with competitor Royal Caribbean by visiting that companys private island in the Bahamas. Key West spokeswoman Alyson Crean said the change, which took effect March 14, means the city will miss 27 scheduled stops for the calendar year and 18 scheduled visits for the fiscal year ending Sept. 31. The 18 stops represent a net loss of about $60,000 [in passenger disembarkation fees]. Since we didnt budget for the others, we dont consider them a loss of revenue.She continued: We were ahead of our [revenue] estimate for the year so the overall impact wont be that much.The Carnival ships Fascination and Ecstasy will visit Royal Caribbeans Coco Cay on their five-day trips. Fascination leaves from Jacksonville and Ecstasy departs from Port Canaveral.Carnival officials have said the change in port calls is meant to diversify routes to improve guest experience. Crean chalked it up to a want to save fuel, which is achieved by skipping the detour from the Bahamas down to the Southernmost City.Carnival changed the itineraries as a cost-cutting effort, Crean said Key West also routinely picks up unscheduled port calls from ships redirected during the six-month Atlantic/ Caribbean hurricane season.TOURISM The Fascinationis based out Jacksonville and one of two Carnival ships to pull out of Key West.
After seven years on the drawing board, the Key West City Commission appears poised to authorize the $8.5 million construction of a new transportation depot on Stock Island. The site for bus storage, washing, fueling, fleet maintenance and Transportation Department offices will go up following the demolition of the former solid-waste-toenergy plant, on 4.5 acres of city-owned property along College Road next to Gerald Adams Elementary School. The new building will replace the existing one at 627 Palm Ave., which City Engineer Birchard Ohlinger describes in a staff report as undersized and in poor condition. The commission was set to vote on issuing a contract for the demolition, design and construction to Ann Arbor, Mich.-based D.N. Higgins Inc. at a meeting after press time on Tuesday. The total price is $8,536,327, which reflects a recent reduction of $173,893 because project staff decided not to install an 8,000-gallon fuel tank on site, but rather move a 15,000-gallon tank from Palm Avenue. The new structure will use the existing structural envelope of the solidwaste-to-energy building, which measures 60 feet tall and around 25,000 square feet. The project is largely funded through grants, with more than $5 million coming from the federal government and nearly $3 million from the Florida Department of Transportation.Commissioner Jimmy Weekley said city staff checked with federal Department of Transportation contacts to ensure the imposition of $85 billion in budget cuts from the federal sequestration wont affect funding.We checked and everything is still ready to go, he said. D.N. Higgins is no stranger to construction in Key West. The firm milled and repaved Eaton Street in August 2011 and in 2008 built an $8 million solidwaste transfer station on Rockland Key. When the Rockland Key transfer station opened, many of the functions previously performed on Stock Island were moved, opening the site up for the transportation depot.

The Explorers arrive in Tavernier for a 7 p.m. Thursday game at Barley Stadium.Hurricane boys also on win sideFrom Canes,1B two in the seventh, helped by errors by Darren Miller and Presley, and a squeeze bunt that landed in front of charging relief pitcher Steven Wells. Later in the inning, Somerset had the bases loaded, but Wells struck out two batters in a row. Gus Gallo came on for Wells the star center fielder who pitched four effective innings in the 10th. With runners at second and third and one out, he forced a batter to foul out to Varela, the catcher who had let two drop earlier in the game. Gallo then threw a wild pitch but raced to the plate to take the throw from Varela and tag out the runner trying to score from third. Menendez had had a hunch about Presley, which is why he let him swing on the 3-0 pitch in the 10th: I know Brandon hits the ball hard in practice, so I thought he might be able to come through. It was the longest game for the Conchs, Menendez said, since they played 12 innings against Miami Southridge in 2007.Conchs hunch pays off bigFrom Conchs,1B multiple other non-keeper species. Capt.

Organizations throughout the state are participating in Viva Florida 500, a year-long celebration of the 500th anniversary of Spanish explorer Ponce de Leons arrival on Floridas East Coast.But not all of Floridas history is sunshine and warmth. There are dark sides, among them, slavery. The Mel Fisher Maritime Museum in Key West has planned ARemembrance of Slavery, a series of events presented in conjunction with the statewide 500th anniversary commemoration. Slavery spanned hundreds of years in Florida and included Native Americans as well as Africans.Because of the recovery of slaver shipwrecks, weve been able to gain a lot of insight into what life was like for those forced to endure the transatlantic slave trade, said Melissa Kendrick, the museums chief executive officer.Tonight, the museum closes its Movies at the Museum series with the History Channels Deep Sea Detectives program, Slave Ship Uncovered, a documentary on the recovery of the slave ship Henrietta Marie which sank in 1700 off Key West. The program begins at 7:30 p.m. in the museum courtyard, 200 Greene St., and is free to attend. Aquestion-andanswer session will follow.Then on Thursday, underwater photographer Don Kincaid joins museum archaeologist Corey Malcom to present a multi-media presentation of the current underwater and academic findings related to the slave ship Peter Mowell which sank in 1860 in the Bahamas. It starts at 7:30 p.m., also in the museum courtyard, and is free.On Sunday, the museum holds a remembrance of the men, women and children who were buried at Higgs Beach in what has become known as the African Cemetery. The remembrance coincides with the United NationsInternational Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade.The observance of the International Day connects us to similar ceremonies all over the world, said museum board member Dinizulu Gene Tinnie, president of the African American Caribbean Cultural Arts Commission and one of the guest speakers at the commemoration. The African cemetery remembrance will be held at 4 p.m. at the cemetery memorial on Higgs Beach.More details of these events can be found at www .melfishermuseum.orgor by calling 294-2633, Ext 22.The U.S. Navys renowned Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Squadron returns to the Lower Keys Saturday and Sunday for the Southernmost Air Spectacular presented by Naval Air Station Key West.The air show is scheduled to take place at NAS Key Wests Boca Chica Field, mile marker 8 on U.S. 1 just north of Key West. Gates are to open at 9 a.m. both days, with the show scheduled to begin at 10 a.m.Parking and admission are free (although reserved seats can be bought at nominal cost). Bring blankets or lawn chairs.However, fans of the acrobatic pilots can get an early glimpse on Thursday, when the Blue Angels and others participating in the show conduct familiarization training from noon until 5:30 p.m. so the pilots can familiarize themselves with visual references in preparation for their performances.The Blue Angels this is their third show in the Keys since 2004 are internationally recognized for their superb formation flying. The squadron, whose winter home was NAS Key West in the 1960s, is to perform maneuvers in F/A-18 Hornet fighter aircraft beginning at 2:30 p.m. each day of the show.Other planned show highlights include demonstrations by the Navy Strike Fighter Squadron VFA-106 Gladiators, Fighter Composite Squadron VFC-111 Sun Downers and Special Operations Command Parachute Demonstration Team. Also scheduled are civilian aerobatic exhibitions by Rob Holland, Jack Knutson, Gary Ward and Greg Shelton with wing-walker Ashley Battles. Manfred Radius is to demonstrate aerobatics in his sailplane, as is Chuck Aarons in his helicopter. In addition, event organizers are planning a tribute to the late Key West aerobatic pilot Fred Cabanas, veteran of countless air shows in the Keys and around the country. Static displays of military and vintage aircraft, a kids zone and concessions are to round out the attractions. Following are some basics you need to known:Can I bring a wagon to pull my kids in? Yes, they work well with children too big for strollers, but too young for all that walking. Be mindful that strollers, carriages and wagons cannot take up aisle space in the seating areas.No pets are allowed on the show grounds other than service animals.Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the flight line in the vicinity of aircraft, vendor tents or chalets. Smoking is permitted only in designated smoking areas.Coolers are not permitted. Camera and diaper bags are allowed but subject to search.No roller skates, skateboards, bikes or personal golf carts are permitted but scooters and electric wheelchairs for the disabled are.No outside food or beverages are allowed other than baby bottles (non-glass) and small snack items for infants. There will a variety of food and beverage vendors. Not all of the vendors take credit cards; an ATM will be available on the site.

Guides denounce pole,troll planEven professional flats guides can pole a boat only so far, dozens of guides and anglers told Everglades National Park staff at a Wednesday hearing in Tavernier. Aproposal to declare about a third of Florida Bay more than 131,000 shallow acres as pole-andtroll zones would effectively ban access to many popular fishing areas, said speakers at the first Keys hearing on the parks preferred alternative for its updated rules. Lots of these areas are where the fish are. I cant spend hours and hours to get into them, said Upper Keys guide Bill Wert. If the wind changes, now Ive got to pole my living brains out and Im 67. Although the session that attracted more than 130 people to the Coral Shores High School Performing Arts Center technically was for all the 614-page plan to update Everglades National Parks management plan for the first time in 34 years, virtually everyone wanted to focus on Florida Bay waters.Pole-and-troll zones would require boaters to use only push poles or electric trolling motors. While some areas are relatively small, a few are more than a mile wide.Rather than expansive no-motor areas, guides appealed for more idlespeed zones and use of traditional channels through large flats like Nine Mile Bank north of Islamorada.We know how to run these channels, guide Tim Klein said. We cant pole or troll; wed never get through. People use these channels.If we can idle out without leaving a mud spot, we should be able to idle out, Klein said. I challenge any of you to pole for a mile and a half into the wind, said Dianne Harbaugh, regional representative for the Coastal Conservation Association. That group does not find the preferred alternative an acceptable alternative, mostly due to access, she said.Anglers pointed to the need for more channels intoThose who work on Florida Bay say feds dont know consequencesEVERGLADES NATIONAL PARKKeynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWFlorida Bay fishing guides examine the latest proposals to limit motors in the bay.Everglades National Park staff met with near-unanimous opposition to the pole-and-troll plan as it now stands.Eight seek contracts for FIRM studyThe grassroots group Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe has eight companies that want to help the group with its risk modeling initiative aimed at lowering windstorm insurance rates for Keys properties.Thursday at the County Clerks Office in Key West, members of the organization unsealed the responses to a request for proposals to perform three specific studies as part of the overall initiative. Since its creation in 2006, FIRM has battled to lower Keys windstorm rates, arguing to the Office of Insurance Regulation and Citizens Property Insurance Corp. that windstorm damage from hurricanes is not a major threat here like it is in other parts of the state. The average Keys property owner pays $2,900 annually to Citizens for coverage. Citizens is footing the $485,000 bill for the modeling initiative. The specific study areas and the respondents:Risk engineering consulting, meant to identify characteristics that enable structures to withstand hurricane-force winds, and establishing a way to inspect for them: AIR Worldwide (Massachusetts branch), ARA-IntraRisk (North Carolina) and Willis Limited (England).Building survey, meant to verify that Keys buildings are built to stronger standards than elsewhere: Industry and Environment Engineering Consulting in Key Largo, Solaria Design & Consulting in Marathon and Perez Engineering & Development, Inc. of Key West.Natural catastrophe risk analysis, which includes calculating the Keysprobable maximum loss and evaluating alternatives for insuring Monroe wind risk: AIR Worldwide (California branch), Aon Corp. (Illinois) and ARA-IntraRisk and Willis Limited.FIRM President Heather Carruthers said the next step is there are five of us on the selection team and well get together on April 2 and select the vendors, adding Citizens has been notified of the RFQ respondents. She said following that, contract negotiations with the highest-ranked vendors would begin as soon as we pick them and have the final legal documents in place. The overall risk modeling initiative is meant to understand the full risk of damage attributable to wind from hurricanes in Monroe County with particular attention to the actual construction conventions and strength of buildings in the Keys, and to the distinction between damage caused by storm surge.Finalists likely to be chosen April 2By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comWINDSTORM INSURANCEDriver who killed toddler is chargedThe driver who struck and killed a 2-year-old boy with his car in Key Largo last week was charged Friday with a second-degree misdemeanor for not immediately reporting it.Specifically, Edward Krajewski, 63, is charged with not reporting an accident that caused property damage. The damage: Abroken headlight on the 2013 Hyundai Sonata Krajewski was driving southbound on U.S. 1 around midnight March 12, when he hit Austen Mark Alward at mile marker 99.AMonroe County Sheriffs Office deputy pulled Krajewski over at mile marker 26 at 1 a.m., about 15 minutes after Austens body was found lying in the median of the highway, after noticing the Hyundais frontend damage.State Attorney Catherine Vogel said Krajewski did stop some time in between hitting Austen and being pulled over. He told the deputy he thought he hit an animal.Theres no obligation to stop if you hit an animal, Vogel said Friday. Given the time of night and the unlikely event a small child would be in the middle of U.S. 1, there is no reason to believe he knew he hit a person.However, drivers who strike anything on the road that causes damage to their vehicle are obligated to report it, Vogel said. The statute for which Krajewski is charged is punishable up to 60 days in jail.Austen Alward was reported missing by his parents, Mark Alward and Christina Lucchesi, shortly after midnight. They thought he was sleeping and noticed he was gone after checking his room.Somehow, he managed to unlock the front door of the familys two-story Sunset Boulevard house, slip past the gate that surrounded the yard and cross U.S. 1.Krajewski faces misdemeanor in March 12 deathBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comLAW ENFORCEMENT Few answers in officers injuriesUnanswered questions abound after a state marine officer was thrown from his boat Thursday off Key Largo and ended up in the water, severely injured and clinging to his vessel until help arrived.Twenty-four-year Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Officer Wade Hefner was found hanging onto his 29-foot patrol boat in South Sound Creek. It happened around 12:10 p.m. Friday, Hefner remained at Ryder Trauma Center in Miami and was undergoing several tests at the hospital, FWC spokesman Bobby Dube said. The extent of Hefners injuries wasnt clear but Dube said he was told there was a lot of blood, and facial injuries. Because of his injuries, Dube said Hefner hasnt been able to communicate the circumstances surrounding the accident. But one thing is clear: Hefners FWC-mandated life jacket is the reason hell eventually be able to shed light on what went down.He would have drowned, Dube said.

Rascheins cat bill movesState Rep. Holly Raschein of Key Largo has stepped into the battle between people who care for feral cats and those who claim they are a deadly nuisance to wildlife. She says shes trying to strike a balance with House Bill 1121, which is aimed at lowering feral-cat populations statewide through spaying and neutering programs. It says local governments may enact ordinances necessary to establish a community cat program designed to curtail community cat population growth.The Republican from Key Largo on Wednesday unveiled HB 1121 at the House Agricultural and Natural Resources Subcommittee on which she sits. The panel approved it unanimously, sending it to other committees for consideration.Raschein said the Best Friends Animal Society approached her about sponsoring the bill. The Kanab, Utah, group describes itself as running the nations largest sanctuary for abused and abandoned animals. Raschein said she believes that down the line, fixed cats make less babies, though she understands where organizations like the National Audubon Society are coming from.Their belief is no feral cats. I love our wildlife, too, and I understand the threat feral cats pose. This just merely defines what a community catis and encourages trap, neuter and release, she said.The Keys are home to countless feral-cat communities, and numerous groups care for them, for example, Forgotten Felines in the Middle and Lower Keys.Ocean Reef, an exclusive four-square-mile community in North Key Largo, was once home to as many as 2,000 feral cats. David Ritz, president of the Ocean Reef Community Association, said that population has been reduced to roughly 300 through spaying and neutering.This is exactly what weve been saying for 20 years. People were concerned about the cat population in the parks, and the endangered animals have all sorts of threats. Cats are one of five to 10 things that cause danger, not the only one, Ritz said. Raschein, a self-proclaimed dog person, she said shes familiar with the issue locally. There is a lot of local support for the bill. I got a lot of e-mails from constituents supporting this, she said. The basis for the bill is its not mandatory. It gives local governments an option if they want to deal with feralcat colonies. In late January, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service introduced a plan for the second time to trap feral cats in Keys federal refuges because the cats are a threat to native species such as the Lower Keys marsh rabbit and Key Largo woodrat. The status of that program wasnt immediately available. Despite her intentions, Raschien says there is limited time left in the legislative session for her bill to pass. It still has three more committee steps and so the likelihood of it passing is not high, she said.She says aim is encouraging spay and neuterBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com KeysNet.com Keynoter 2A Saturday,March 23,2013 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDA Y HIGH L O W SAT.8475 SUN.8672 MON.7765 TUES.7361 Forecast: Expect partly cloudy skies with a chance of showers.

The 108-7 vote on House Bill 155 came a little more than a week after the states lieutenant governor resigned due to ties with an Internet cafe group at the center of a multi-state racketeering investigation. It is likely the first step in closing the businesses, which have been popping across the state with more frequency in recent years.

STATE LEGISLATURELeap of faith on canal cleanup?Apledge of $5 million to design and test Florida Keys canal restoration projects could lead to more outside money for a widespread program, Monroe County commissioners decided. Given our reliance on clean water, I think this is an investment we have to make, Commissioner Heather Carruthers said before the 3-2 approval during the boards Wednesday meeting in Marathon. Committing $5 million from the countys infrastructure sales tax may help secure about $30 million more from the states share of Restore Act funds, part of the BPDeepwater Horizon settlement, a narrow board majority contended.Commissioner Danny Kolhage, a former county clerk whos wary of spending infrastructure money without an overall budget, dug in against the canal project. Commissioner Sylvia Murphy and Kolhage both said they have large concerns about committing Monroe County residents and property owners to a massive canal restoration effort estimated to cost $300 million.How does Monroe County become responsible for canals dredged decades ago with approval from the state, Kolhage asked.I want to see canals taken care of but not on the taxpayersback, Murphy said.County Mayor George Neugent and Commissioner David Rice said with no action, serious water-quality problems created by poorly planned canals will wind up on the countys doorstep, anyway.Were dealing with state and federal laws, Neugent said. Because that water is in Monroe County, were going to have to deal with it.This reminds me of the early wastewater discussions 15 or 20 years ago, Rice said. Are we going to wait around until the feds kick the state in the butt, and the state kicks us in the butt? County program manager Rhonda Haag said the state Department of Environmental Protection gave local governments about 10 days notice to submit applications for Restore Act grants. That prompted Wednesdays request for seed money for the demonstration project, she said. Haag outlined plans for the county to undertake five prototype systems, from simple weed gates to block seaweed from floating into canals to bubblers or removal of organic material that has collected on canal bottoms. That material sucks oxygen from the water, killing marine life. The most expensive type of fix applies to canals originally dredged to depths of 50 feet or more to acquire fill material for development. Backfilling a single deep canal could cost nearly $5 million, she said. The Keys reportedly have about 500 canal systems that environmentally range from relatively benign to hazardously toxic. Tides carry degraded water from canals into nearshore waters, experts said. We know our canals are not in good health, said Gus Rios, DEPadministrator in the Middle Keys. The worst pollution we have is in the canals and thats exporting out into marine waters. Water quality is the highest priority, Neugent said. Water quality is the life blood of the Keys, thats what brings the tourists.County OKs $5M on hope of BP fundsCOUNTY COMMISSIONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com clear: Hefner was responding to an ordinary service call when thrown from his boat. South Sound Creek is near marker No. 13, a roughly 10-minute boat ride from John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park.Dube said a good Samaritan found Hefner clinging to the back of the vessel and called 911. The FWC responded with a crew from Key Largo Fire and EMS, and Hefner was brought ashore at Pennekamp, mile marker 102 oceanside. He was then flown to Ryder Trauma via Monroe Countys TraumaStar air ambulance. Hefners boat was not damaged and its unclear how long he was in the water. Dube said its also not known how fast Hefner was traveling, nor whether he lost control or something caused him to be thrown from the boat. Some people say the engines were running when we got there, some people say they werent, he said. There are a lot of unanswered questions, but obviously the boat didnt go too far that he was able to hang on to it. The good Samaritan was not identified. Dube said the man apparently left the scene as FWC officers and paramedics were busy taking Hefner out of the water.How it happened still not knownFrom FWC,1A Subscriptions 743-5551

I dont think you know what youre asking us to do, guide Ted Benbow said. If [fishing] is not happening, we have to get out of there.

Public comment on the plan will be open until May 12. AKey Largo comment hearing takes place April 10 at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center. Two additional sessions in Key West and Marathon will be added but have not yet been scheduled, parks staff said. The final plan will be adopted in 2014.Bay plan excoriatedFrom Plan,1ABoard to Gastesi: Move slowly fornowWhen looking at qualityof-life projects like restoring the old Seven Mile Bridge or acquiring Rowells Marina for public use, keep costs in mind, Monroe County commissioners cautioned their administrator Wednesday.Administrator Roman Gastesi will be allowed to talk with state officials and property owners to assess costs but not commit any infrastructure sales-tax money, commissioners decided at their Marathon meeting.Alarge contingent of Friends of Old Seven turned out to support the possibility of partnering with the Department of Transportation to split the cost of refurbishing the 2.2-mile stretch of the old Seven Mile to Pigeon Key. Due to structural problems, its been closed for years to fishing and autos.The cost for upgrades has been estimated at $18 million but that does not include potential problems with bridge supports below the waterline.That is an iconic structure recognized the world over, hotelier Pritam Singh said. I think this project is critical to our future as a tourist destination. As for Rowells in Key Largo, Jim Saunders said the Key Largo community supports extending the 1-cent sales tax so there could be some quality-of-life projects for residents. The former Rowells Marina provides access to Florida Bay and needed space for numerous festivals and civic events, he said.Gastesi wanted to know if commissioners have a problem with him investigating further to see if the popular projects are financially practical.Commissioner Danny Kolhage said that after paying loans on wastewater systems and other infrastructure projects, there may not be much money left from the tax.Where do we stand with current project costs, Kolhage asked. How are we going to fit this in?.... We have to get down to the reality of what we can afford. Commissioner David Rice said Gastesi should learn more about potential projects. Hes not spending a nickel, Rice said. Commissioner Heather Carruthers and Kolhage both referred to an unreleased state engineering report on the old Seven Mile Bridge that suggests costly problems beyond the upper decking, which has been the only publicly identified problem, but details were not disclosed. Carruthers described the findings as a little scary.In other items Wednesday: The board approved new members for the local advisory panel to review projects that could be funded under the Restore Act that allocates some money from the BP Deepwater Horizon settlements.Grudgingly approved $235,972 from property taxes toward a lobby expansion at the Freeman Justice Center in Key West. Design problems have significantly increased the cost of renovations at the courthouse. This is beyond frustrating. This thing goes on and on, county Mayor George Neugent said.Approved a tentative $1.7 million for the Human Services portion of the county budget that allocates funding to numerous local nonprofits. The amount could be hiked later if money is available, commissioners said.Old 7 Mile, Rowells in countys aimCOUNTY COMMISSIONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org Visit our online photo galleries and submit your own photos at www.KeysNet.com/Photos

For the longest time, I passed by a billboard advertising free health care and thought there must be a catch.Unfortunately, I fell on hard times and could no longer afford health insurance so I went to the Good Health Clinic across U.S. 1 from Mariners Hospital and I did qualify for the program.The quality of service and attention I received far surpassed any of the doctors I had been to previously. They got my cholesterol and high blood pressure under control and provided the moreexpensive medicines. The dermatologist treated me for existing skin cancer and pre-cancer, also finding discounted drugs for me. My left hip needed to be replaced so they found a surgeon to do the surgery pro bono, with a three-day stay in the hospital. With this, they offered to follow up with physical therapy and administered the follow-up drugs I needed with no charge to me. I will always be thankful to Dr. Sandy Yankow and his wonderful staff for greatly improving my life. So for good health, call 853-1788. Betty Chiavarini IslamoradaNo celebration hereGosh, it was Rick Scott Day last week in Islamorada and no one told me. I could have celebrated. I could have toasted Citizens Property Insurance Corp., relishing all the problems it caused me this year. Or I could have cheered the granting of 3,550 more development rights in the Keys, even further stressing our resources, including the water supply. Better yet, I could have dreamed about the solar rebates I couldnt get because the governor and Legislature didnt fund them. And I could have kissed the reef goodbye after the governor signed off on 30-year leases for the sugar growers in the Everglades. Oh, and just so much more we should be grateful for. Lets all raise a toast of green tea to Gov. Scott and the Islamorada Village Council for creating Rick Scott Day in the Keys.

The Florida Keys are under a state mandate to have the islands connected to central sewers for advanced wastewater treatment by December 2015, and we are close to reaching that goal. Yet look to our northern neighbors and see why were concerned. Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties continue to pipe wastewater (albeit treated) into the ocean, polluting nearshore waters while endangering marine life. Six sewer utilities in those three counties got a deadline extension to 2025 to clean up their act. Meanwhile, in the Keys, the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District has nearly finished its $150 million sewer system. Likewise, Marathon is nearly done with its $85 million system. Unincorporated Monroe County finally broke ground a few weeks ago on its Cudjoe Regional system, which will connect around 7,000 parcels from Big Pine Key to Cudjoe Key to treatment plants. Overall cost is contracted out at $137.4 million. And Islamorada the last holdout to concede that the state mandate needs to be met has finally begun construction on its system, which will ship its wastewater to Key Largos plant. Construction cost is estimated at $90 million. None of this has come without pain. Property owners feel it each month when their bills arrive, and wherever sewer construction is taking place, come traffic delays and frustration over torn-up roads and heaps of dirt and fill. While the Keys continue to push forward and do the right thing, those three mainland counties continue to pump wastewater into the Atlantic at what the Florida News Service reports is up to a staggering 300 million gallons daily. Meanwhile, the Florida Keys demonstrate good stewardship of our environment by no longer contesting the December 2015 mandate. It hasnt been easy getting here, but even the most die-hard opponents of sewers (which replaced cesspits) will tell you they can see real improvement in the nearshore waters where central sewers have been operating. Thats good for our marine life and good for our economy, which relies on clean water to attract tourists. Tallahassee has made no ironclad promise of authorizing that second $50 million, but the county and Marathon, which split the bulk of the money if it goes through, are confident its coming. We remain optimistic. But a commitment from the Legislature at this point not waiting until the state budget goes to Scott for his signature would send a strong message that doing whats right is rewarded (as opposed to more stalling, witness three neighboring counties to our north). No easy parking fixAt a Key West City Commission workshop Wednesday to try to tackle Old Towns parking problem, consensus was reached on at least one thing: The demand for space from residents, visitors and those who work in the business district far outweighs the supply. Commissioners agreed that whats needed is a longterm solution that could include building a large parking lot or garage outside of Old Town paired with a reliable and regular shuttle service to Old Town. But they also agreed doing such a thing would require major grant funding and take years to realize. Mayor Craig Cates identified the citys employee assistance parking permit program as low-hanging fruit that, if addressed now, could help at least relieve congestion. There are 163 permit holders who work in Old Town and pay $100 monthly to park in any metered space. Cates wants to reduce that fee to $25 per month while limiting parking to cityowned lots on Caroline Street near the Key West Bight and on Angela Street next to the former city hall.Parking Manager John Wilkins offered several suggestions based largely on meter revenue that is lost to programs such as the employee one.He said that program costs the city some $475,000 per year because people arent feeding the meter the going rate of $2 per hour. The city, for $100, is using this valuable on street parking, Wilkins said. Weve really restricted the number of people that can come into these areas and shop by having all this dedicated to employees. Aresidential metered parking program is extended to 48 permit holders who, for $106 per year, can park at any metered spot on their block, costing some $275,000 per year in meter revenue. Overall, parking fees earn the city more than $4.5 million annually. Commissioners came to few conclusions, other than to direct Wilkins to research the number of resident vehicles in Old Town and compare that to the number of available spots, somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,700 controlled by the city.Wilkins will also look into a program with guesthouses and bed and breakfasts in residential areas that would require or encourage guests to park their cars in city-owned lots rather than on the street.Commission: Inventory autos,spacesBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTResidents express concernsKey West city commissioners got an earful Wednesday when hearing from residents about the lack of parking and associated problems in Old Town. At a specially called workshop, city staff proposed and commissioners discussed potential changes to parking permit programs, including doing away with a residential metered program and making wholesale changes to the employee assistance parking permit program. Richard Hawkins, who has lived in Old Town since the 1970s and now lives in the 400 block of Simonton Street, said the citys appraisal of how much parking there is on any given day is calculated at 4 p.m. At 4 oclock in the morning, when every tourist car is parked by their hotel ... and every residents car is parked on the street by the residence, theres an unbelievable amount of parking available in this city, he said. Whats missing from the equation at 4 oclock in the morning that makes all the parking available? he asked. Its the employees. They absolutely suck up all the parking in this town and thats the problem that really needs to be addressed. Mayor Craig Cates is pushing for the employee assistance permit fee to go from $100 per month to $25 per month and restrict parking to cityowned lots on Caroline and Simonton streets rather than allowing parking at any metered spot. Paul Mitchell of Eaton Street is one of 48 people who pay $106 per year to park at metered spots on their block. City Parking Manager John Wilkins suggested either doing away with that program or raising the fee to $100 per month. When I talked to [Wilkins] today, that was his solution: Go find another place to park, Mitchell said. If those parking passes go away, Im going to have to go rent a parking spot someplace and walk two or three blocks to get to my house. I dont think thats fair to those of us who live downtown. Remember, therere a few of us that are here because we still live here. Please try and take that into account.Daily influx of employees among issuesBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST

By one accounting, the cost of the new terminal at Key West International Airport just got cut in half to the tune of $32 million. Making an early payoff of the 30-year bonds used to construct the $31.6 million terminal allowed Monroe County to save on 23 years of interest costs, Airports Director Peter Horton said at Wednesdays Monroe County Commission meeting. It was a combination of factors but where we got very lucky was when the economy caused interest rates in the bond market to drop through the floor, Horton said later. When the county took out a 30-year bond for $30,455,000 in July 2006, the interest rate was 5 percent annually. At that rate, repaying the principal and 30 years of interest would have created a total debt of more than $65 million. At that point, just the interest cost $3,000 per day, Horton said. When interest rates plummeted to around 1 percent, airport money was directed toward paying down the actual cost of the terminal. That allowed the bonds to be repaid in seven years. Virtually all money for the project came from passenger-ticket fees and federal airport-improvement grants. Horton said other calculations show savings from $11 million to $27 million, depending on varying interest rates over the full length of the bond. But we started out looking at $65 million over 30 years. We paid $33 million, he said. Do the math and that comes to $32 million saved. The 50,000-square-feet terminal opened in 2009 after more than two years of construction. We let some other programs slide so we could pay off the bonds, Horton said. Now we can start looking at other things.

Including expenditures that have been incurred since the project was initiated in 2006, the total price tag is $9,780,771. The site for bus storage, washing, fueling, fleet maintenance and Transportation Department offices will go up following the demolition of the former solid-waste-toenergy plant on 4.5 acres of city-owned property along College Road next to Gerald Adams Elementary School. The new building will replace an existing one at 627 Palm Ave.The contract for the demolition, design and construction goes to Ann Arbor, Mich.based D.N. Higgins Inc. The measure passed 5-1 with Commissioner Teri Johnston dissenting and Commissioner Mark Rossi absent.Johnston pointed out that the construction cost, funded through federal and state Department of Transportation grants, started out at $7.4 million. In other action Tuesday, the commission:Received from City Manager Bob Vitas an update on a push from the Community Services Department to clean up Little Hamaca Park off Government Road near Key West International Airport.It looked terrible, Vitas said. Were going to make every effort to try to restore that park as much as we can. Commissioner Tony Yaniz, who brought the parks condition to Vitas attention, said the difference is night and day following a recent cleanup. Its really a diamond in the rough but its a diamond none the less, Yaniz said. Little Hamaca is the former site of a Hawk missile battery setup in 1962 during the Cuban Missile Crisis.Commissioners unanimously gave their support to two measures working their way through the Florida Legislature. The commission, at Yanizs behest, passed a resolution endorsing Senate Bill 74, which, if passed, would prohibit the use of hand-held wireless communication devices while driving. It also passed a resolution supporting companions House Bill 957 and Senate Bill 722, which, if passed, would prohibit certain stores from providing disposable plastic bags. It would apply to large businesses but not small mom-and-pop operations. Commissioner Jimmy Weekley, who owns two Faustos Food Palace locations in Key West, replaced plastic with recyclable paper bags in his grocery stores four years ago. He said the switch has been accepted extremely well. One of the things that Ive noticed is that people keep reusing those paper bags. We thought it was the right thing to do for the community and we hoped others would follow.Johnston says no because of the costBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTCounty pays off airport bondsBig savings come from lower ratesKEY WEST INTERNATIONALBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comU.S.1 GETS A MAKEOVER Tropic Landscaping and Lawn Maintenance Inc. workers green up the U.S.1 median in Marathon Wednesday.The city agreed to a $162,734 contract in December to plant 140 trees and thousands of ground-cover plants in the median from Aviation Boulevard to Coco Plum Drive.

Like in the earlier game, this one was stopped after six innings because of the 10-run mercy rule.It was the second consecutive victory for the Conchs, who improved to 11-3 overall and 4-1 in District 16-4A. The Hurricanes fell to 7-6 and 0-5. The teams could meet a third time if the Conchs are the top seed in the district tournament, which will be played in Key West.Playing without slugger Darren Miller, out with illness, the Conchs didnt exactly slug their way to victory all 10 of their hits were singles, and they stole nine bases. Walks and hit batsmen also helped. Coral Shores took a 1-0 lead in the first inning against winning pitcher Brandon Presley, a sophomore lefty who had another strong performance.

New point-earning rules dictated that to earn the title of grand champion the winner needed a slam consisting of a redfish and bonefish combination. Fishing with Capt. Chuck Schaftstall, Parrish scored two slams for 500 points and took the champion title with 400 points earned in other categories. The winning duo also caught and released the three-day events largest bonefish at 26.7 inches. Runner-up grand champion honors went to veteran tournament angler Jim Bokor Jr., also of Buffalo, with Key Largos Capt. Jared Raskob at the helm. The team landed two slams and earned 375 points in other categories. Islamorada angler Rob Preihs and Capt. Brian Gwilliam took trophies for the largest redfish, a 28.3incher, and the most released redfish with 20. Afield of nine boats with anglers from as far away as Texas and Wisconsin released six bonefish and 93 redfish during the event.

Trying out a new trend can always be a bit daunting. Think about how you felt the first time you tried on a pair of skinny jeans after years of wearing wide-leg or boot-cut jeans. But this years spring trends are something to get excited about. Theyre bright and bold in an everything-goes kind of way and perfect for Florida Keys living. When trying to figure out how to work a trend into your wardrobe, its best to start small and make sure you will wear it into future seasons. Take a look at the list of trends below and then look for a few accessories and maybe one wardrobe staple such as a shirt, dress or slacks in a classic silhouette that fits you well, drawing on these new spring trends.Emerald: Each year Pantone declares a color of the year and this years color is the elegant and lush emerald green. Looking through spring look books, youll find slacks, skirts, blouses and dresses in this radiant hue. Paired with denim, you may run the risk of looking like you just left a St. Patricks Day soiree but an emerald dress paired with nude heels or metallics will look incredibly glamorous. Additionally, try pairing it with other lively colors such as cobalt blue or yellow, or wear it with a pattern such as black and white stripes or polka dots.Florals: This season, flowers are bright and playful and found in many head-totoe looks. If, like me, the idea of wearing florals reminds you of your grandmothers couch, try it in small doses such as a floral-patterned clutch or scarf. When going for a bolder look, balance a floral dress with classic accessories such as pearls or black heels.Bright colors: Neon is still in and brighter than ever. This season you will see neon in bright pinks, greens and oranges. Tone a bright piece down by pairing it with navy, denim or white and classic accessories. Focusing on accent pieces like a bright structured jacket will make any outfit more polished and on trend.Black and white: When thinking of spring, most think of pastels and bright happy hues, but this season designers put the emphasis on head-to-toe black-andwhite looks. Resist the urge to add in a bright accessory to a blackand-white look and instead wear a bright lip color with an all-black-and-white look. This spring trend is also wearable for both day and night and affordable for every budget.Islamorada Mercantile, mile marker 81.9, offers a great selection of on-trend and affordable clothing and accessories for men and women. I also love its selection of housewares and driftwood clocks made by the owner.Find easy-to-wear dresses and wardrobe staples in bright hues and patterns perfect for trying out this springs trends. Try a bright scarf for spring for just $26 or a graphic black-and-white print dress worn with headto-toe black and white. Leah Maki is a fashionobsessed style blogger.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4B Saturday,March 23,2013 For anyone wondering if a skateboard is allowed while viewing the Navys Blue Angels spectacular air show, the answer is No. Thats among the frequently-asked questions that arise around the event, which draws thousands to the field at Boca Chica Naval Air Station for two days of aerial acrobatics and more. In addition to the Navys famed precision flying team, the Blue Angels, civilian aircraft and pilots will also be performing aerial spectaculars at the Key West show, Saturday and Sunday. Among some notable air show stars appearing: Rob Holland, winner of the 2012 Art Scholl Award from the International Council of Air Shows to recognize the worlds most outstanding air show performers. Manfred Radius, who performs stunts in a sailplane in North America, Australia and Mexico. Jack Knutson teams up with Holland for a tandem show called Xtreme Firebirds, and Greg Sheltons wingwalker aerial display. Chuck Aaron, the only civilian pilot to ever be licensed to perform helicopter acrobatics in the U.S., will be coming to the Keys and playing showoff as well. Other military teams that will perform include a paracommando parachute crew from the Special Operations Command (SOCOM). And, visitors with field passes will also be able to see up close a V-22 Osprey, KC135 Stratotanker, TH-57 Sea Ranger, 60-C Lodestar, MH-53 Pave Cave and an F-18 Hornet. There is no admission or parking fee and patrons are welcome to bring their own chairs or blankets. Reserved seating is available and tickets are priced accordingly. Flightline Club and box seating will be available for purchase the day of the event. Be warned, however, no credit cards accepted; cash only. And there will be an ATM on the grounds. Gates at Boca Chica, mile marker 8, open both days at 9 a.m. and shows begin around 10 a.m. The Blue Angels are the last performers each day and they go up around 2:30 p.m. The show is usually over by 3:45 p.m. In addition to the air show itself, visitors can also see the collection of aircraft on display.Vendor booths, souvenir t-shirts, food booths and a kids fun-zone are also planned. No pets are allowed other than service animals(another one of those frequently-asked questions). And, when you think about it, having jets come screaming overhead is not likely to be popular with your pets, either. Parking is available on base, once you pass through the security gates. For questions about parking, contact the naval base security office at 293-2506.

Now playing nationwide. The intriguing trailers for The Incredible Burt Wonderstone promise a clever, quirky and funny film, featuring a cast that any Hollywood producer would envy. With established stars like Steve Carell, Jim Carrey, Steve Buscemi, Olivia Wilde, James Gandolfini and Alan Arkin, this antidote to recent darker films about magic like The Prestige and The Illusionist would seem to be a sure winner.The story is that Burt Wonderstone and Anton Marvelton, famous Las Vegas magicians who have ruled the strip for ten years, have seen their stars diminish as a new style of edgy and dangerous magic threatens to become the next big thing. Carell is Burt and Steve Buscemi is Anton, partners since childhood, whose friendship has faded along with their act. Jim Carrey is the sceneand gig-stealing Steve Gray, whose outrageous stunts have attracted a growing audience and who stands to oust Burt and Anton as the reigning kings of Vegas magic. Gandolfini is the casino owner who employs Burt and Anton, and Arkin is a burnt-out retired magician who many years ago inspired Carells character to take up magic. The film starts off well, showing the wonder and awe that magic can inspire in young and old alike. But, like a puff of smoke in Burt and Antons act, the magic starts to vanish quickly. Carells self-centered personality is amusing early in the film, but he takes the character way over the top and his egomaniacal blustering gets old fast. He does finally have an epiphany, but even the new and improved Burt isnt all that likeable. Also disappointing is the usually entertaining Steve Buscemi, who seems lost playing a normalcharacter, without his usual idiosyncrasies to bring Anton to life.And sadly, in a major Hollywood production centered on magic, its that magic that is truly disappointing. To the chagrin of magicians everywhere, much of the magicis not even real sleight-of-hand, but CGI special effects. Granted, there are a few scenes of well-done closeup prestidigitation, but sure-Arkin and Carrey carry the water in weak storyFILM Craig Wanous KeysFilm Steve Buscemi,Steve Carell,Jim Carrey and Olivia Wilde among the stars in The Incredible BurtWonderstone.See Film,5B Remembrance ceremony SundayARemembrance of Slavery, a series of events presented in conjunction with the statewide commemoration of Florida 500, concludes Sunday, March 24, at a special ceremony on Higgs Beach.The program is in keeping with the International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade.For Key West, the burial ground at Higgs Beach has become known as the African Cemetery and contains the remains of slave men, women and children who were brought ashore after the slave ship Henrietta Marie sank off Key West in 1700.The observance of the International Day connects us to similar ceremonies all over the world, according to Dinizulu Gene Tinnie, president of the African American Caribbean Cultural Arts Commission.Tinnie, who also serves on the board of the Mel Fisher Maritime Museum, will be one of the guest speakers at Sundays program.For more information, visit: www.melfisher museum.org or call 2942633, ext. 22.At Higgs Beach where slave burial site discoveredKEY WESTPhoto courtesy Mel Fisher MuseumMuseum conservator Monica Brook works to restore the bell from the 1699 slave ship Henrietta Marie,which sank off the coast of Key West in 1700.

Saturday,March 23,2013 5B Keynoter KeysNet.com ly the producers could have scripted some amazing magic tricks and illusions without resorting to computers. Can it really be called magic if a computer is doing the trick? The phony sleightof-hand is a real distraction and undermines the central theme of the movie. This is director Don Scardinos first feature film after working in television for many years and, unfortunately, his TVbackground shows. Much of the movie plays like a sitcom, leaving viewers half-expecting a laugh track to kick in. And many of the scenes really do need a laugh track theyre simply not funny. The restaurant reunion scene in particular comes to mind. Arkin, Gandolfini, Wilde and Carrey are the bright spots in Burt Wonderstone. Arkin brings a crusty sense of humor to his role as the cantankerous old magician with a twinkle in his eye. Wilde is glowing as the ambitious magicians assistant and Carrey, despite starting to lose his boyish goofiness, plays his Criss Angel-like character with concentrated zeal. Gandolfini hits all the right notes as the self-absorbed casino magnate who cant remember how old his young son is at the boys birthday party. But even these performances cant infuse the film with the magic promised. With a cast like this, making The Incredible Burt Wonderstone a fun experience for viewers should have been as easy as saying Abracadabra. There are a few chuckles sprinkled throughout the movie, but they are few and far between. And the cringeinducing stunts that Carrey performs as Gray should include a Do Not Attempt warning to discourage young imitators. (Anote to parents: take the PG-13 rating seriously.) The movie had a soft opening last weekend and once word gets out, the last disturbing trick of the film the disappearing audience may prove prophetic. And the only magic the actors can hope for from this film is that it will swiftly disappear from viewersminds. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is neither incredible nor wonderful and, after seeing it, viewers may feel they are the ones who were tricked.Half expect laugh track to kick inFrom Film,4BRegal Cinemas Searstown,Key West,294-0000 All shows that start before 4 p.m play only on weekends.

As reported in the Orilla Packet and Times, the look mixes Victorian corsets and hoop skirts with futuristic elements like goggles or cyborg appendages. McKee describes Steampunk as combining the industrial age, machineage art and art deco, with a little bit of Star Trek thrown in for good measure. At the Big Pine Gallery, McKee is showing off his decorated rocking chair, which uses some of the techniques hes developed for his other love: carving and decorating totem poles.His north country paintings have a big following north of the border and McKee teaches classes as well.When not living and working in Orilla, McKee likes to spend time in the Keys.For more information about his work, call the gallery at 872-1828.Its open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the WinnDixie Shopping Plaza off Key Deer Boulevard, Big Pine.Canadian artists work on display at Big Pine galleryART Bent wood,antlers,even fishing gear are formed into artist Jimi McKees vision of a rocking chair revisited.

Or is that only illusion and the artist is playing with our preconceived notions? To find out, youll have to see potter-turned-painter Adam Russells latest works at his gallery, 929a Truman Ave., Key West.The owner of Key West Pottery won one of The Studios of Key Wests Artist in Residence gigs back in 2009. He was concluding a portrait series entitled The Oneness Identify Project, while living and working in Key West part-time. Since then, he and his family permanently relocated to the Southernmost City, where hes spent the past three years working in clay and continuing to explore his muse through painting. Working exclusively in clay for the past few years has taught me how to listen, Russell said. To hear the vernacular of my surroundings, without trying to didactically relay some big idea. Returning to my painting easel with this more direct, open approach to making art has been a happily messy release. His latest body of paintings, dubbed Listen, range in media, size and subject. They, along with his sculpture pieces and other paintings will be on display at the gallery until April 20.
