Rice is a co-author of the study published in the April edition of the Journal of Fish Biology. Media outlets reporting the two-headed shark include NBC News, Fox News, National Geographic and Time. This is certainly one of those interesting and rarely detected phenomena, said the studys lead author Michael Wagner, assistant professor of fisheries and wildlife at Michigan State University. Its good that we have this documented as part of the worlds natural history, Wagner said, but wed certainly have to find many more before we could draw any conclusions about what caused this.

Druckemiller, 51, pleaded guilty on March 6 to grand theft and dealing in stolen property. She could face 15 years on each count but the State Attorneys Office is recommending a two-year sentence. Druckemiller admitted stealing 52 county-owned Apple electronic devices that cost taxpayers $23,311 and selling them for $4,778 to friends and other employees, including County Administrator Roman Gastesi. Defense attorney Robert Cintron said hes waiting for a subpoena to come back from cell-service provider AT&Tin hopes of establishing that Gastesi activated the first device.

Jackson, who teaches second grade at Poinciana Elementary School, chose to receive her winnings in a one-time payment of $11,718,436.93, according to a statement released by the Lotto communications staff. Jackson, an educator for the past 38 years, will retire from teaching at the end of the current school year, lottery officials said. She plans to use her winnings to further her philanthropic endeavors. The Publix at 3316 N. Roosevelt Blvd., where Jackson purchased the ticket, received a $70,000 bonus as the point of sale of the winning ticket. The next Lotto drawing is set for tonight at 11:15 p.m. with a $16 million jackpot. In Florida, someone who wins more than $250,000 is required to appear in Tallahassee to claim his or her prize in person.

However, Councilwoman Ginger Snead says its time the city regulates the growing taxi business. You dont know how much I would love that, Wogan said. I think there should be strong regulation. If theres anything I could do, Im on board. The Middle Keys have least three other taxi companies: On Time Taxi, Bob Gnarley and Key Hopper. Wogan says she knows of illegal taxis that offer $3 fares undercutting everyone else and operate without even a sign or business name on their cars. There are people that dont have a company and they just ride around, she said. Whats to stop me from taking the signs off my cars and giving up my commercial insurance? At Tuesdays councilSnead says proliferation demands itBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONReports: Keys healthy but overdo itDespite our tendency to smoke and drink too much, Florida Keys residents generally enjoy a healthy lifestyle. Living in the top-ranked physical environment in the state helps. The Keys have unpolluted air, uncontaminated water, sunshine and plenty of access to healthy activities.On the downside is Monroe Countys high rates of cigarette smoking and heavy drinking, enabled by remarkably easy access to those legal but unhealthy vices.Those general conclusions are shared by two assessments: The first Monroe County Community Health Almanac, newly published by the Monroe County Health Department; and A Healthier Nation, County by County, a national report compiled by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.Its interesting to step back get a perspective on how we compare to the rest of the state, said Christopher Tittel, spokesman for the county Health Department.Asurvey of Monroe County residents showed 25 percent of the sample admitted to excessive drinking, defined as binge drinking (four to five alcoholic drinks in a single setting at least once in a 30-day period) or heavy drinking (one or two drinks nearly every day). The Florida average for excessive drinking is 16 percent of the population.Alcohol can influence our health in so many ways, Tittel said. And there are a lot of places to get booze here.The effects of drinking, in addition to damage to body organs, can include traffic accidents, brawls, falls and risky sexual behavior, Tittel noted. State records show Monroe County has 660 active alcohol licenses, the county Health Almanac says. None of three Florida counties with similar populations (Columbia, Nassau and Putnam) has more than 209 liquor licenses.

meeting, Snead floated the idea of regulating cabs, saying shes seen a proliferation of cab companies picking up patients from her physical therapy office.I counted no less than four companies pull in and pull out. Alot of my patients are elderly or I have teenagers that take the taxis. We have no regulation as to whether theyre insured, she said.Snead and fellow council members were clear that they dont intend to over-regulate the business, but want some type of city oversight. That could include a city license fee.I dont want some big law thats going to take us six years to get through, just some simple things where they have to come through our City Hall and we know whos operating a taxi, Snead said. Mayor Mike Cinque pointed out that it should be up to the state Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and law enforcement to regulate whether cabs drivers have licenses. Cab companies, like any business, register for occupational licenses through the Monroe County Tax Collectors Office, according to city Planning Director George Garrett. City Manager Roger Hernstadt said that doesnt mean theres any requirements for how they operate. No matter how many rules and regulations we put out there, people are going to break them, Cinque said. If we can come up with some simple registration, I dont think its a bad idea. Maybe that way they have a city sticker saying theyre licensed. The council agreed to discuss the issue at a future meeting. Hernstadt said staff is in the beginning phases of researching the topic. The part I took away was less is more, so well try to figure out whats just enough to have some degree of control without limiting it in any shape or form, he said.

Long age 95, of Islamorada, the Florida Keys, and Stuart, FL passed away at home in Stuart in the early morning hours of Saturday,. March 23, 2013. Ray was born at home on October 31, 1917 in Farmville, VA to Raymond Victor Long and Harriett Crute Paulett. Ray grew up in Richmond, VA and graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in 1934. He entered Virginia Military Institute in 1934 and graduated in the Class of 1938-B with a degree in Civil Engineering. He joined the U. S. Army after graduating from VMI, serving from 1940-1946 as a Major in the Army Engineer Corps working on buildings in California, New Mexico, Washington D.C. and Maryland. After his military service, he entered private business as CEO of Ivy Construction Company in Charlottesville, Va. He then started his own company, Long Construction Company. He moved to the Florida Keys in the early 1970s and helped develop Buttonwood Bay Condominium, Coral Harbour Club Condominium and Ocean Harbour Condominium. Ray had two passions: First, was his love of music and he had a beautiful baritone voice. He was a longtime member of The Church of Our Savior in Charlottesville, VA where he was a choir member. He loved singing with his sister Paulett and his daughter, Lucy. Second, he loved boating and fishing. He loved being on the water operating his own boat, Tilley Hat strapped tight, trolling in the Gulfstream. He was an accomplished Big Game angler and fished competitively in many tournaments in the Bahamas and Costa Rica. Ray is survived by his cherished wife, Sally, and her family: Julie (Lou) Lentine, Fred Miles, and "Lady Jane" Miles. He will be especially missed by his step-grandson, Nicholas L. Lentine, who enjoyed ten wonderful years with Pop Pop watching movies and building Legos together, sleepovers, and sloppy joes for supper. Ray and Sally were privileged to boat and fish together, travel both domestically and internationally, and enjoyed halcyon years of visiting churches for services, music, opera, and theater. Ray was predeceased by his first wife, Betty Call Long, and is survived by their three children; Carter Long Hannah (George) of Waynesboro, VA., Raymond Douglas Long (Linda) of Lovingston, VA. and Lucy Long Ivey (Kean) of Afton, VA; seven grandchildren, Mark Hannah (Amy) of Danvers, MA; Raymond Daniel Hannah (Katie) of Vienna, VA., Putnam Ivey and Kean Ivey of Afton, VA, Christin Long Healey (Adam) of Charlottesville, VA and Shannon and Rae Paulett Long of Charlottesvile, VA; three great grandchildren, Ryan and Kailyn Hannah and Lucas Hannah. Ray is also survived by his sister Paulett L. Taggart ("Baby Sister) of Bedford, MA and his sisterin-law, Lucy Call Dabney of Richmond, VA; nine nieces and nephews. Ray, always the true Southern gentleman, will be remembered by all as a man of integrity who always looked to do "what is right. Strong in mind and body, Ray was the picture of self-discipline. He loved his family and extended family and his many friends. This fine and decent man will forever be missed. It was Rays wish to have his remains disbursed at sea in The Florida Keys. This will be accomplished on Thursday. March 28, 2013. A remembrance of Rays life will be held at The First United Methodist Church of Stuart at a later date. For information please call: 772-283-4393.

Franny had been a resident of Jackson County for the last three years. She spent most of her life living first in Michigan, then in Illinois and Wisconsin, but of all the states and places she lived, Florida was her favorite. Fanny put herself through beauty school in Aurora, IL. She raised her five children while working from her home beauty shop. After her children were grown, she felt a new career in real estate would be perfect for her. She passed the licensing exam the first time around. Many homes in the Fort Myers, Fla, area were listed and sold by Franny. She loved to fish, play golf and go on cruises. Ever the sports fan, she loved cheering for the Chicago Cubs and Bears. Fanny loved to cook and taught her three daughters the art. She enjoyed her sweets and had a fondness for chocolate chip cookies and turtle candies, but her greatest fondness was exchanging hand-written letters and photos with her children and grandchildren. Born Oct. 14, 1933, at Grand Rapids. Mich., she was a daughter of Conrad Peter and Alma Lucille (Swanson) Becker, both of whom preceded her in death. In 1949 at Grandville, Mich., she married Donald Dale Kuipers. Survivors include her children, Gail D. (Bob) Speer, Karen J. (Lee) Backey, Kathryn A. (John) Rummery-Schafer, Wade M. (Kim) Kuipers, and Dale N. Kuipers; 13 grand children; a brother, D. Wendell Becker and a sister, Doris V. Schweikl. She was preceded in death by her husbands: Dennis Piron and Thomas Reimer; twin brothers, Dick and Robert Becker and her twin brother Frank Merlin Becker. A family celebration of Frannys life will be held later in April 2013 in the Florida Keys. Her final resting place will be in the warm ocean waters of the Florida coast, which had been a place of solace and relaxation throughout Frannys life. Memorials may be given to the Alzheimers Association. All local arrangements have been entrusted to the staff of Tri-County Crematory, Seymour, owned and operated by Voss and Sons Funeral Service.

One alarming factor, said Tittel: Suicide was the fifthleading cause of premature death in the Keys, with 24 people (16 people under age 65) taking their lives in 2011. That raises a lot of questions, Tittel said. Now that we have the hard evidence, hopefully we can get together for research, partnerships and outreach campaigns. Cancer, heart disease, combined natural causes and unintentional injury were the top four causes of premature death in the Keys and statewide, generally. On the positive side, Keys people are thinner than the Florida average. Only 17 percent are considered obese, compared with the state average of 27 percent. That could be because Monroe County has a lower percentage of fast-food restaurants and better access to physical recreation. Theres much more to public health than nurses giving flu shots and inspectors ensuring our water is safe to drink, Health Department Director Bob Eadie says in the almanac foreword. Suicide rate is highFrom Health,1A charge of running the entire county, who also has the ability to hire and fire, starts the process and he doesnt get indicted and he doesnt lose his pension and he doesnt get fired, I think it bears mightily on the punishment an underling should suffer, he said. Its been an unfortunate situation for many people and the investigators report and grand jurys report decided to indict her and not indict anyone else, said Gastesi, who received a formal reprimand from the County Commission.Cintron said Druckemillers lost pension amounts to a $1 million fine already imposed against his client.On Friday there wasnt a new date set for sentencing before Chief Monroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlin.Sentencing delayedFrom Druckemiller,1AAudit shows some financial problemsFlorida Keys Community College has four deficiencies, all related to bookkeeping, identified by the Florida Auditor Generals Office in a report released March 22. The annual financial audit covering the fiscal year that ended June 30 offers four findings that, taken as a whole, amount to one significant deficiency. The audit for the previous year had no findings of any sort. The findings for this past year:The college needed to improve its controls to ensure that financial statement transactions are properly reported.The college paid the operating costs of one of its direct-support organizations without specific legal authority.The college used [state] Public Education Capital Outlay funds for purposes not specifically authorized by law, resulting in $800,000 of questioned costs.The colleges current funds-unrestricted fund balance had declined to a level that may leave the college with no resources available for emergencies and unforeseen situations. The findings are intertwined. Auditors concluded the college used restricted money (the first finding) to pay expenses incurred by the Campus Foundation directsupport organization (finding No. 2), which runs the colleges 100-bed dorm. To cover the $789,000 in college money sent to the Campus Foundation, the college inappropriately used PECO funds (finding No. 3) to balance out the cost. On the fourth finding, If the college is unable to collect amounts owed to it by the Campus Foundation, is unable to reduce or eliminate the auxiliary funds deficit fund balance, and continues to use college resources to finance the Campus Foundations operations, the college may not have resources available for emergencies and unforeseen situations. In his March 21 response, FKCC President Jonathan Gueverra acknowledged the audit findings but noted that the colleges unrestricted fund balance, around $712,000, is in line with state requirements. On the college money used to cover dorm expenses, Gueverra said, The college acted in good faith, for the benefit of the students, and in the best interest of maintaining both its enrollment and its responsibility to its students.

New airport managerno strangerNew Yorker Donald DeGraw says hes found his dream job after more than 20 years in the aviation management field. The aeronautical services manager at John F. Kennedy International Airport was announced Wednesday as Monroe Countys assistant director of airports and manager of Florida Keys Marathon Airport. Hes the potential successor to longtime airports Director Peter Horton, whos set to retire in January 2015. DeGraw was on the job for just a year at JFK, but said he and his wife had long hoped to move to the Keys.Previous positions hes held include management jobs at the airport in Burlington, Vt., Rutland/ Southern Vermont Regional Airport, Floyd Bennett Memorial Airport in upstate New York and Yellowstone Airport in Montana.We already had our sights set on the Florida Keys for years, but there was no real turnover here. When this came up, we jumped on it, he said. Ive been doing this 20 years now and my plan is to finish out my career in the Keys and retire there.DeGraw received his degree in aeronautical studies/management from EmbryRiddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach in 1990. He said hes familiar with the Keys, having flown to and vacationed here many times over the years.Once youre down there, you dont want to go home, he said. DeGraw will go from overseeing a staff of 50 at one of the worlds busiest airports to spending the majority of his time at Florida Keys Marathon Airport, a general aviation airfield.Small but busy, DeGraw said of the Middle Keys airfield. I know Peter has done well running it and I want to learn all I can from him.DeGraw beat out dozens of applicants and a short list of four finalists that included outgoing Naval Air Station Key West Commander Patrick Lefere, whos retiring in the summer; United Way of the Florida Keys President Margaret Smith; and DeLand Municipal Airport Manager Nickolis Landgraff. Although all of our finalists were extremely well qualified and any one of the four could have performed the duties in an exceptional manner, we are fortunate to have Don DeGraw joining the Monroe County airports team, Horton said in a prepared statement. DeGraw is expected to begin work on June 3 and will earn $95,000 per year. He said hes been kicking ideas around and is already well aware of the milliondollar question in Marathon: Can the city support commercial air service? Theres three components to quality air service: Reliability, good connections and a good ticket price, he said. If we can find a carrier that provides those components, we could find an airline to serve the community.DeGraw coming to Keys from JFK airportBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONTwo saved in high seasAleisurely paddleboard ride could have ended in disaster Tuesday afternoon for 10-year-old Nico Martinez and his family if not for the efforts of Marathon resident John Strama. According to his aunt, Gabriela Nyhus, Martinez, from Miami, was riding the board close to shore near a house the group is staying at on Lower Matecumbe. But the wind picked up quickly and the swept the boy far from shore. So much so that Nyhus and sister-in-law Renee Wolf set off in a two-person kayak to retrieve him. I was screaming for him to come back and we were so far out chasing him, Nyhus said. When I jumped in to try to get to him, the wind picked up and he was too far out and my sister-in-law couldnt get to me. I was trying to swim back and screaming for my nephew, but then I lost them.Sean Daida, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Key West, said winds in that area had laid down earlier in the afternoon Tuesday. They picked up around 4 p.m. to 26 mph, with gusts up to 31 mph. The forecast called for 2to 4foot seas and larger swells.Nyhus estimates she was floating in those cold and rough conditions for roughly an hour before Strama happened upon her. I swore I was going to die. I tried to swim but it was too rough, she said.Strama, who runs a boatrental firm, was in the area retrieving a damaged rental boat and came upon Nyhus by chance off mile marker 75 oceanside. He said she was floating alone with a life jacket and a paddle from the kayak.I called 911 and told them I found her. She started screaming about her 10-yearold [nephew]. I told them, Hey theres a little kid out here on a paddleboard, too, Strama said. Strama said he remained on the phone with police, informing them what the boy was wearing. He read the wind and wave patterns and headed in the direction he thought the boy would have been taken. We were waiting on the Coast Guard to come and I started looking at the wind and waves and kept going that way. About two miles away from where [Nyhus] was, I found the kid. He was just laying on a paddleboard, crying, and I grabbed him, Strama said. Strama said Martinez had drifted all the way out to near Alligator Light off Islamorada, which is about five miles offshore. Theres was like 6-foot waves out there, Strama said.

The dead shark fetus was sent to Michigan State, where experts used magnetic resonance imaging to confirm that it essentially was an animal with a single tail and two heads, rather than conjoined twins (two animals that share a body organ). Dicephalia occurs when an embryo splitting into twins ceases the separation process. Shark species like blue sharks and tope sharks have been found with two heads, but the Keys specimen is the first-ever bull shark, according to the study. Even had it been born alive, the bull shark almost certainly would not have survived long, Wagner said. Animals with such deformities have trouble catching food, and are easy prey for other predators. Youll see many more cases of two-headed lizards and snakes, Wagner said. Thats because those organisms are often bred in captivity and the breeders are more likely to observe the anomalies. Although the shark was found in the Gulf of Mexico after the BPDeepwater Horizon oil spill, Wagner cautioned that pollution cannot be confirmed as a cause of the deformity. I could see how some people may want to jump to conclusions, he said. Making that leap is unwarranted. We simply have no evidence to support that cause or any other.Pollution not considered causeFrom Shark,1A Parking going up at Key West bightThe Key West City Commission on Tuesday is expected to raise the parking rate at the Key West Bight lot from $2 per hour, the onstreet rate, to $2.50 per hour. The move comes after a six-month trial balloon with the lower rate, designed to potentially increase turnover and therefore increase revenue, ended up costing around $55,000 in losses. At a meeting March 13, the Key West Bight Management District Board recommended the switch to the higher rate.Parking has been a hot topic in Key West as of late, with the commission on March 20 hosting a workshop that contemplated, among other things, a major overhaul of the various parking permit programs regulating spots in the crowded historic district. All city-owned lots in Old Town cost $2.50 an hour with the exception of the Mallory Square lot, which costs $4 hourly. The commission meets on Tuesday beginning at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street.Outer Mole PierAlso up for approval Tuesday is a $2,056,140 contract with Ann Arbor, Mich.-based D.N. Higgins Inc. for installation of a fuelpump and other improvements to the U.S. Navyowned Outer Mole Pier.The city uses the pier as a cruise-ship berth and in lieu of rent payments has a deal with the Navy that provides for improvements and maintenance money.The current Outer Mole lease, signed in 2007, expires in June.

State Rep. Holly Rascheins proposed amendment to a bill that would exempt privately owned military housing from property taxes was voted down Thursday in a House committee meeting. In 2007, the U.S. Navy transferred ownership of military housing around the country 890 units in Key West to the private Southeast Housing LLC, a part of British conglomerate Balfour Beatty Communities. Last year, then-Monroe County Property Appraiser Karl Borglum, realizing the federal government no longer owned the houses, filed an $11.5 million lien seeking back taxes, penalties and interest, which is being challenged by Southeast.Concurrently, Rep. Jimmy Patronis (R-Panama City) is sponsoring House Bill 531, which would remove the liens and lock down continuing tax exemptions. Theres a Senate companion, SB 354, passed without discussion to second reading on Wednesday.Thursday, Raschein, based on the outcry from Monroe County residents and public officials who say the lien needs to be paid, offered an amendment that would limit the exemption to houses actually occupied by activeduty military or civilians working for the military.She presented that to the House Economic Affairs Committee and was met with a chilly vote, 16-1 against, followed by Patronisunamended bill being OKd 16-1 with only Raschein dissenting.Raschein told her colleagues the amendment was meant to clarify what has become an extremely contentious issue in my district by not extending the exemption to units rented out to people without any military affiliation.While I wholeheartedly support providing our local service members with quality housing, its impossible to ignore the impact general rental has had on my community.Patronis called the property tax exemption an unintended consequence of military housing privatization, done essentially to leverage private investment into better public facilities. He acknowledged that a privately owned house, despite sitting on federally owned property, is technically a taxable asset. But that blows up the whole business model that was established, he said. What this bill technically does is ... explains that that asset/property relationship is not taxable.To Raschein, he said, I appreciate your efforts and what youre doing to represent the folks in your district. Sometimes we need to be the lone fighter and I appreciate you being willing to stand up. KeysNet.com Keynoter 4A Saturday,March 30,2013 THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

The high and low were 64 and 57 respectively, beating the records for that date set in 1969, 65 and 58. Then on Thursday, the record low of 60 on March 28, 1978, was beat with a low temperature of 58. Key West National Weather Service forecaster Sean Daida called them good long-running records.

Proposed by Councilwoman Ginger Snead in January 2010, the city doled out five income-restricted $10,000 loans to two couples and three individuals. The program was approved after plans to attach deed restrictions on properties were removed. The loans are distributed through the citys Affordable Housing Program fund. Twenty-two applications were submitted for up to 10 loans, but only five of the 16 qualified applicants followed through and purchased properties. That means the city has leftover money $78,000 according to city documents to reopen the program. The fund includes remaining money from the initial $100,000 set-aside, fees paid to transfer building rights in the city and a small amount of interest. Snead brought up the idea of using the remaining money at Tuesdays council meeting. I was wondering how much had not been used. If its been a good program, we could open it back up again, she said.The [five recipients] that did end up with their assistance are all still in the homes, so I think its been very good, Planning Director George Garrett saidThere were income guidelines attached to the first round of loans. For example, theyre available to a family of four that earns up to $90,000 annually, and a single person earning up to $68,000. In addition, the loan is forgiven if recipients live in their homes for 30 years. If they sell before that time, they repay the city the $10,000. Its unclear if any changes to the process would be made, but the council authorized staff to use up to $50,000 of the remaining $78,000 for the loans. Recipients in 2010 were Yasiel Rodriguez, Sarah Hamilton, J. Shane Brown, Marie Jean and Katrina Simmons.City reopens financial help programBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONShelter chief leaving the KeysThe head of the Florida Keys Childrens Shelter is leaving after 18 years, saying she and her husband are moving to Oklahoma in September to care for her husbands aged parents. Tom and I will probably relocate to Oklahoma, shelter Chief Executive Officer Kathy Tuell said. His parents are 96. Its like a fulltime job. Taking care of Toms parents, that will be a full-time job.Tom Tuell, who grew up in Oklahoma, has been editor of the Key West Citizen for more than a decade. He previously was editor of the Keynoter .The Tuells are also raising a granddaughter who turns 7 next week. Its not like Im leaving for another job, Kathy Tuell said, adding that a succession plan is in place and the choice of whoever will lead the nonprofit shelter is in the shelter boards hands. The agency served more than 500 children the past year and more than 22,500 children since 1989, Kathy Tuell said. Programs include the 19bed Jelsema Emergency Shelter for youths 11 to 17, seven-bed Poinciana Emergency Shelter for children birth to 10, the sevenbed Poinciana Residential Group home for youths 11 to 17, community-based counseling and the Project Lighthouse Street Outreach Program for homeless and runaway youths.Kathy Tuell has served on numerous boards at the local, state and national level, including the 16th Circuit Juvenile Justice Board, Monroe County Community Alliance, Guidance Care Center and Monroe County Continuum of Care, Florida Network of Youth and Family Services, and the Special Populations Subcommittee of the Florida Task Force on Human Trafficking.When we think of Kathy Tuell, we think of big ideas, said Stacy Gromatsky, president and CEO of the Florida Network of Youth and Family Services. We are grateful for her years of service to the children and families of Monroe County, but also as a former chairperson and board member of the Florida Network of Youth and Family Services.

What exactly happened to Mark Polaschek, 49, remains unclear. Presumably an autopsy is being performed.The Guard says Polaschek, a Davenport financial advisor, went out sailing on the 26foot boat Mrs. Big from the Manatee Bay Resort at mile marker 112 oceanside. His wife stayed behind because, she told Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputies, she didnt believe his boating skills were up to snuff.After he didnt return at sunset, his wife reported his absence to Coast Guard Sector Key West. Multiple Coast Guard aircraft and boats were launched to search for the boat in partnership with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Monroe County Sheriffs Office and National Park Service. Later, a crew aboard a Coast Guard Air Station Miami helicopter located Polascheks vessel adrift in mangroves. Arescue swimmer aboard the helicopter was hoisted down to the boat and found the vessel abandoned with only a few personal items onboard.Polaschek came to Key Largo on vacation with his wife and 6-year-old son. in body was found in the northwest corner Blackwater Sound.While I wholeheartedlysupport providingour local service memberswith quality housing, its impossible to ignore the impact general rental has had on my community. State Rep.Holly Raschein
Saturday,March 30,2013 5AThe state Senate Appropriations Committee unanimously approved a bill Thursday that would lower motor vehicle fees in exchange for repealing an insurance tax credit, turning aside protests from the insurance industry that the measure would hurt a thriving business.Under the legislation (SB 7132), the bill would reduce the annual cost to register a motor vehicle by $12. In return, insurance companies would lose a premium tax credit of up to 15 percent of the salaries they pay to Florida-based employees. Doing away with the tax credit will raise about $220 million, according to the committees estimates, which will cover most of the projected $225 million cost of rolling back the fees. The bill sparked an unusual dynamic in the committee, with industry groups questioning a proposal from the Republican-led Senate and one GOPsenator asking the committee to go slowly while others seemed eager to plow ahead.Lobbyists for insurers told the committee they had no problem with trying to reduce the fees Florida motorists pay to register their automobiles as long as the money to pay for the reduction came from somewhere else. The industry says 44,000 jobs were created by companies that get the tax credit even as the economy struggled through the recession.This credit, which was created to attract insurance jobs in the state, has worked and is working, said Brewster Bevis with Associated Industries of Florida. But committee members were skeptical, with Republicans in particular pushing for the industry to name a company or companies that located jobs in Florida because of the credit or would leave if the credit were repealed. They also said the success of the industry might suggest the tax break isnt needed anymore. At what point has an incentive done what we intended it to do and we as a Legislature say, That was it? asked Sen. Andy Gardiner (R-Orlando). Others were more cautious, including Sen. Garrett Richter (R-Naples). I do think we need to tread very carefully because if ... any industry has had a tax exemption that goes away, thats a tax increase, he said.

On April 10, Gentile will participate in a Florida Department of Administrative Hearings proceeding in which an administrative law judge will consider whether to reverse a one-week, unpaid suspension Porter imposed in December.Porter handed down the punishment because the finance chief identified himself as a Florida certified public accountant when he was hired in 2009 despite not holding the certification. Gentile holds an active New York CPA license but has never held the certification in Florida.The state Department of Business and Professional Regulation investigated a complaint last year and ordered Gentile to stop using the title.

EDITORIALMilitaryhousing gets a tax passLETTERS TO THE EDITORRaschein amendment would have mandated property taxes for non-military rental homesOn Monday, Monroe County Chief Circuit Judge David Audlin will hold a hearing in his Key West courtroom on the issue of privatized military housing being exempt from local property taxes. The case has ramifications far beyond Key West, where the battle has been joined by the Monroe County Property Appraisers Office seeking to enforce $11.5 million in tax liens against the U.S. Navys private housing management company. Both the Florida House and Senate are moving legislation through committees that would undercut the Monroe County case, which is seen as setting precedent that could impact similar publicprivate base housing deals across the state. An analysis by staff of the House Finance and Tax Subcommittee says Florida bases with military housing managed by private, for-profit companies include naval air stations Key West, Pensacola, Jacksonville and Mayport; Patrick, MacDill and Tyndall air force bases; and Naval Support Activity Panama City. Florida statutes currently recognize that federal property is exempt from ad valorem taxation. But the statute is silent on the leaseholds that now are at issue in the Monroe County case. In 2007, the Navy transferred ownership of 890 Key West housing units to Southeast Housing LLC, a division of British conglomerate Balfour Beatty Communities. So long as the military housing was occupied by active-duty military, the issue of property tax exemption never arose. However, as Balfour Beatty began to renovate and rent out those former military units to nonmilitary tenants, that triggered a review by thenMonroe County Property Appraiser Karl Borglum. In the case before Audlin, the Property Appraisers Office argues that Southeast Housing LLC is not an exempt entity. The use of the property, leasing of the housing to active military and non-active military and civilian tenants is not a recognized exempt use. House Bill 531 and its Senate companion SB 354 would erase the tax lien filed in Monroe and extend the exemption to all other areas of the state. Wednesday, state Rep. Holly Raschein (R-Key Largo) introduced an amendment to the House bill so that only units leased to non-military would be subject to local property taxes. Unfortunately, that common-sense compromise went down in flames Thursday as the House Economic Affairs Committee voted 16-1 to reject her amendment. As it stands now, it appears House and Senate leadership are bound and determined that Florida taxpayers will subsidize these for-profit management companies in perpetuity, along with the nonmilitary tenants who occupy units formerly reserved strictly for military purposes. It makes no sense, but hey, thats Florida Legislature at work.U.S. must be like a beacon in the seaFrom the very start of its existence, America has symbolized a nation that strives toward equality and justice. The United States was built up around the nation that, as humans, we have certain unalienable rights that should always be respected, certain freedoms that cannot be taken away from us. It was these principles that so many citizens fought to protect. As American citizens today, we still need to assume responsibility for the safety of this nation, but now we need to take a lead in not only Americas future but the world as a whole. For the most part, our founding fathers aimed to create a nation in which an individuals personal freedom would not compromise anothers. The Constitution was made to grant freedoms that would benefit the greater good of society. Today, much like long ago, we are given the very same freedoms so long as these rights fall within the boundaries of being safe, not just to protect ourselves but others, but also indirectly promoting the safety of the whole nation. The level of freedom we enjoy has not been altered much, but what has been changed is the amount of responsibility bestowed on this country in serving as a role model for the whole world. Since the birth of America, a good citizen had been marked by his or her loyalty and allegiance to the country and his or her actions of doing what was the right thing for this country, which they call home. Historically, being patriotic went hand in hand with ones responsibility to this country. Fulfilling this duty granted them the honor of representing a good citizen. The same concept still holds true today; however, now the inherited responsibilities we as citizens are expected to uphold has shifted to a wider sphere: It is no longer enough to just do good for this country; we must now take into account how our actions affect the world internationally. Being a good citizen requires one not only help his or her own community locally but also to expand out and consider the ramifications society will be embraced by. It is now the responsibility for good citizens to reach out and make sure the world benefits, as well, because America has become so influential that our actions, which might seem beneficial at the local level, should also strive to improve our country with regard to the grander scheme of things. Although America is still a fairly new country, we as United States citizens should take great pride in the rise to the top that our country has experienced. With this prestige comes the responsibility to act as a beacon of light in the dark sea of the future. We must make it our duty to act as the role models of other countries because of this guiding light we possess. We have the freedom to change the world, so we should also grab the reins and steer our communities, our nation and our entire world in the right direction. It is no longer just a freedom or privilege to be influential. It is now a duty and responsibility to lead worldwide and act for the good of all mankind.

Herd also won the organizations essay contest for her writing on the topic: Our American Heritage and Our Responsibility for Preserving It. This is her essay.GUEST COLUMN HERDKeys man sacrificedAbsolute power corrupts absolutely. Astute intellectuals throughout the ages have admonished us with this fact. Thomas Paine writes: The duty of a patriot is to protect his country from its government. As a child of the 1950s, I took seriously the overreaching power of our government. What was termed a lack of patriotism became the rallying cry that ended the war in Vietnam, as we forged ahead with the civil rights movement. We wanted to advance the cause of freedom by not bowing to authority, but by questioning it. Transparency determines the motives and legitimacy of the ruling elites. We want their actions clearly delineated, assessing their integrity and effectiveness. Individuals like John Donnelly of Key Largo have sacrificed their blood and treasure to uphold the principles that are the cornerstone of our society. As a decorated United States Marine whose combat experience took him to the brink of death, hes transitioned his focus upon those domestic politicians and policies that threaten our survival. What he learned during his global combat is extremely relevant today in our battle against jihadism. Any regime is capable of incinerating its own citizens. Recent revolutions in Libya, Egypt, Tunisia and Mali, along with the murdering of 80,000 defenseless civilians in Syria, tell us that people who blindly follow their governments are destined to be exterminated. The ghetto of armed Jewish resistance in Warsaw, Poland; although it did not stop the Nazis, it diverted and delayed their global jihad, allowing more time for the allies to defeat the tyranny of fascism during World War II. My knowledge of John Donnelly confirms his vast experience in standing up for the powerless against the all-powerful state. In my mind this will be his lasting legacy. Although he wasnt in the United States when our generation stood up to authority at home, he has always fought the powers that be so that no one, be it peasant or president, is above being held accountable for their actions. This plan of human existence shall have no demigods. Weve been blessed with Mr. Donnelly. Harold Schulman Key LargoGamble elsewhereApparently Internet cafes arent what I always thought them to be. I now find that they are actually places where mostly the elderly go and gamble. Oh my, thats alarming. These things are tearing apart the moral fiber of our communities. If you feel the need to gamble, then why not go to a casino and keep these little places out of neighborhoods. Im glad that the Legislature is cracking down on these cafes. I hope the next time I hear of an Internet cafe, its actually a place where I can grab a panini and surf the Internet.

Edith Zewadski-Bricker Monroe County Social Services CELEBRATING OUR PASTOn Sept.11,1962,the Monroe County Commission passed a resolution urging the thenFlorida Road Department and any other interested agencies to take immediate action to four-lane U.S.1 from Florida City to Key West....Of course, that didnt happen,but some areas were widened,such as in Key Largo in the 1970s and Marathon in the late 1980s.Its unclear when and where this photo was taken,but it appears to be tied to the effort to four-lane Marathon,which went back to the 1970s.Photo from KEYNOTER ARCHIVESJudges uphold prayersAfederal appeals court Tuesday upheld the constitutionality of prayers before meetings of the Lakeland City Commission, rejecting atheistsarguments that the practice promotes Christianity.Lakeland is one of numerous local governments across the state that opens meetings with prayers, often led by clergy. Atheists of Florida Inc. filed a lawsuit in 2010 challenging Lakeland, but a three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sided with the city.The court said Lakeland has acted legally after putting in place a 2010 policy that included a process for selecting speakers from a wide range of congregations. That policy also, for example, said invocations would not be listed as part of the public business of meetings and that employees, commission members and members of the public would not be required to participate.The selection procedures of the invocational speakers invited to deliver an invocation at [the] Lakeland City Commissions meetings pursuant to policies and practices ... do not support the AOFs contention that Lakeland attempted to exploit the prayer opportunity to proselytize or advance or disparage any one faith or belief,the court ruled. Nor do these policies and practices have the effect of affiliating the Lakeland City Commission with any discrete one faith or belief. Also, the judges declared moot arguments about Christian prayers before the 2010 policy. Atheists of Florida argued that the citys actions violated the state and federal constitutions, including what is known as the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution. In a brief filed last year, it tracked prayers given at commission meetings since 2002. Prior to the filing of this lawsuit, all but one of the city of Lakelands prayers included explicitly Christian references, the May 2012 brief said. Since the filing of this lawsuit, that proportion has only changed modestly. The sectarian references have been exclusively, or almost exclusively, Christian. In a response filed in June 2012, the city disputed that, historically, only Christian clergy had given invocations. It also argued there was no evidence that the city had usurped the prayer opportunity to proselytize or to advance or disparage any religion or sect.By JIM SAUNDERSNews Service of FloridaIN THE COURTS COMMUNITY CLEANUP Monroe County Sheriffs Office Sgt.Dennis Coleman coordinated a recent community cleanup of a wooded area between the American Legion and the Home Depot in Marathon.It was in cooperation with the American Legion and many people turned out to help out,including residents and members of the Legion,Florida Keys Mosquito Control District and Marathon Fire Rescue.
Of all the five-star hotels, restaurants and spas that made the Forbes Travel Guides list for 2013, none are in the Keys. Are you surprised? Owners of local properties shouldnt feel too bad. Miami won big this year but did so only after a 15-year absence from the top ranks. So what makes a five-star anything? A close study of reviewer comments shows that it comes down to customer service. Yes, its important to have a great location, beautiful view, wonderful ambiance, fantastic food and drinks and amenities, but the tipping point for all these properties was how well customers were treated. About the Mandarin Oriental, Miami, reviewers said, Prepare to be pampered ... from the complimentary treats the pool staff will shower you with (including chilled watermelon or Evian spritz) to the chocolates left at turndown by the housekeeping staff. In the accommodations category, reviewers said this about the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo.: Of the Broadmoors 1,800-person staff, two bits of trivia say it all: Newcomers must log in 175 hours of training, and well over 100 employees belong to the Pioneer Club, meaning theyve been on the job at least 25 years. One five-star restaurant offers women guests a pashmina if they find themselves chilled. Another offers reading glasses to those who are having trouble seeing the menu. When was the last time you received service anywhere approaching this level in the Keys or, to be fair, anywhere else? Customer service these days is as important in person as it is on the Internet. How many minutes have you been on hold with a customer service representative, only to be cut off? How many buttons have you punched to get the right language, the right department, the right person if youre lucky? How long did it take to actually talk to a live person? How many times have you been told, Im not authorized to do that? How many times have you heard, Thank you for calling ABC Co. Your call is important to us. Please remain on the line. The next customer service representative will be with you shortly. Your estimated wait time is ... 20 minutes. Or You are currently the 17th caller. Part of the problem with bad customer service is that too many businesses focus on the wrong end of the continuum more on money than the customer. They cut back on hours or employees or other areas in order to economize when they dont realize that people are willing to pay extra to get exactly what they want. And what people want in addition to great products is great service. If you provide quality service, the money will follow. Look at your own spending patterns. What companies do you do business with all the time? Why? Are your decisions strictly price-driven or are there other factors involved? Where does excellent customer service fit in that decisionmaking process? Businesses cannot afford to compete strictly on price because there will always be some company that is cheaper. They ignore customer service at their peril, especially in light of all the consumer review websites for virtually every service and product imaginable. As the Forbes list indicates, not every business can achieve five-star service. But every business can try. Jackie Harder owns Key Dynamics Coaching and Consulting Inc. of Key Largo.

Rules Meeting at 7 p.m. 6 Customer service trumps allMost consumers will pay more for pamperingCOACHS CORNERJackie Harder CoachsCorner Fitness studio expandsAlmost one year to the day that Andrea Segovia opened up her Islamorada Fitness studio on Plantation Key, she is taking on a major expansion. Islamorada Fitness, mile marker 85.9 in the Venetian Plaza, is taking over the storefront next door and adding treadmills, spinning bikes, elliptical machines, bench presses, free weights and a squat rack. The expanded gym is scheduled to open April 1. Segovia, 28, opened Islamorada Fitness last April after realizing her personal training business was growing too large to simply keep meeting clients in their homes. She needed her own space. The original studio offers a diverse array of workouts from yoga and free weights to boot camp training and spinning classes. Segovia does personal and group training. Islamorada Fitness also has other personal trainers, as well as dance class and Zumba instructors. Call Segovia at (305) 432-6900 for membership prices. For Segovia, she just doesnt want clients to come in for a workout and forget about it when they go home. She also offers them plans including exercises and diets they can do on their own when not at the gym. Whatever you say you want to do, I want you to do it, Segovia said. I want them to have results. Thats my goal for everyone who walks in the store. Judging from testimonials clients have sent her, results are what she gets. One client, who did not want to be named, started going to Islamorada Fitness after his doctor told him injuries hed received would physically impair him for the rest of his life. He did not accept that answer. After only three months of training, I was able to participate in a paddleboard crossing from Key Largo to Flamingo, which is roughly 33 miles, HM said. I would have never imagined six months after my surgery I could do such a thing. I am in better shape than I have been in for a long time. I attribute my progress to the help I received from Islamorada Fitness. Another client, Tiffany, wanted to get into shape and lose weight for her wedding. Andrea has not only helped me reach my goal very quickly, but she has been my motivation and a joy to train with, Tiffany said. Not only is Islamorada Fitness the only gym in the village, it is now the only waterfront gym in the Keys, says Segovia. The gym, directly north of the Snake Creek Bridge, is right on a canal, and Segovia plans to make space on the dock behind the business for clients to relax after or in between workouts. She is also going to bring her kayaks to the gym so her clients can warm up with some paddling before working out. Segovia has built a strong following since opening last year. She says this has to do with the effectiveness of the workouts she provides, and because of word-of-mouth endorsements from clients like Ellen Bloom of Tavernier. Bloom says Segovias training not only helped her kick her pack-a-day smoking habit, it also helped her begin to treat herself better an essential to getting into shape, Segovia says.

The Lady Canes try to keep their team record spotless after finishing the regular season at 11-0, following a 6-1 decision over St. Brendan on March 20. The girls go into districts with a good shot at a run for the title or a secondplace finish, said head coach Blake Fry. The top two teams at the district advance to the regional tournament. Erica Williams, a sophomore playing the tough No. 1 spot, moved to 5-6 with an 8-2 win over a Lady Sabre player who beat her earlier. Junior Ellie Leopold at No. 2 heads into the postseason with a 9-1 slate. The Cane girls in the third through fifth singles spots freshman Juliana Pena and sophomores Rachel Walters and Maria Lozada did not lose a regular-season singles match this spring. Pena and Walters both won, 8-0, at St. Brendan. This has been a storybook season. We lost three seniors who anchored our first regional qualifying team, Fry said, but we reloaded with stronger, younger players. Coral Shoresboys finished the regular season at 210, topping a shorthanded St. Brendan squad. Ian Wilson took the No. 1 match, 8-2; and Sam Nelson cruised, 8-0. Cole Houser and Chris Slosar combined to win No. 1 doubles, 8-0. The boys team has made strides throughout the season, said the coach. The Canes are very capable of making a run deep into the district tournament, Fry said. They are a great bunch of guys and a solid group of tennis players. AMarch 19 match at Key West High School was rained out, and Gulliver Prep cancelled a March 21 match to play an out-of-state tournament.

Pierce took the no-no into the bottom of the sixth inning, finishing with a one-hit complete game in a 2-1 win over Class-7ACelebration High School. He walked four and struck out five. The Dolphins finished the trip 1-2, losing 13-3 to St. Cloud High last Saturday morning and 70 to Harmony High on Tuesday. AMonday game was cancelled due to rain. Senior Todd Picariello started against St. Cloud. He struggled with control and exited the game after giving up seven firstinning runs. The Dolphins scored two runs in the second inning and one in the fourth, but were never able to climb back into the contest. Carlos OFarrill finished 2-for-3 at the plate with two doubles, while Frankie Gonzalez was 2for-3 and Pierce was 1for-3 with a double and an RBI. Against Celebration, the Dolphins scored their two runs in the top of the first inning. Ian Almodovar walked, reached second on an infield grounder by OFarrill and scored on a Pierce single to make it 1-0. Robbie Garcia pinch-ran for Pierce and scored from first on a two-out Jesse DeLuca double. Celebration scored in the fourth to make it 2-1 and had the bases loaded with no outs in the bottom of the sixth inning. The first out came on a force out at home off an infield ground ball, and DeLuca preserved the lead by snagging a fly ball in right and throwing the runner attempting to tag up out at home for the game-saving double play. On Tuesday, the Dolphins played a strong Harmony team to a scoreless tie heading into the fourth inning. But Harmony scored one in that frame and broke out for five runs in the fifth inning, while Marathon was unable to get the bats going. The Dolphins (10-8) are scheduled to host Keys rival Coral Shores High School on Tuesday at 6 p.m.Hurler Pierce nearly attains a no-hitterBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.cmMARATHON BASEBALL Conchs lackluster on road tripPoor pitching and a lack of big hits accounted for the Key West High School baseball teams four defeats on its Spring Break trip this week to the Orlando area. The trip concluded Thursday with a 10-9 loss to Tampa Berkeley Prep in the Central Florida Spring Break Slam at Wekiva High in Apopka. We fell apart; we didnt make them earn it, said coach Miguel Menendez. For the third time in the tourney, the Conchs had a 3-0 lead, and for the fourth time they failed to get an extra-base hit. In their last five games, they have had only singles. Key West fell to 11-7 and was outscored in the tourney, 38-17. We left a lot of opportunities out there, Menendez said on the radio after the Conchs left 11 on base Thursday. We didnt come through with the big hits. Once again the game began promisingly. In the second inning, aided by three walks, a hit batter and an error, the Conchs took a 3-0 lead. Chris Varela drove in one of the runs with a sacrifice fly, and Andy Perez, who had four hits, drove in the third. Wildness, which plagued Key West pitchers in all of the games, helped Berkeley come back with four runs in the top of the third, mainly because Conch starter Jay Feathers walked four. An RBI ground-out by Hugo Valdes tied the game in the bottom of the third at 4-4, but Berkeley scored twice in the fifth. After pinch-hitter Nicholas Kavouklis doubled to make it 5-4, Menendez lifted Feather in favor of center fielder Steven Wells. Wells retired the first batter he faced, but pinch-hitter Anthony Pellegrino doubled on a 32 count to score Kavouklis. The Buccaneers added a run in the sixth to make it 7-4, but the Conchs battled back again in their half of the inning. After Darren Miller drove in a run with a single, two more scored when first baseman Jack Brittain threw wildly to the plate after a sacrifice bunt by Chris Garcia. With the score 7-7, Wells returned to the mound in the top of the seventh. With the bases loaded, he hit a batter to force in a run, then a walk forced in another. Varela then relieved Wells, inheriting a 2-0 count before walking in another run that gave the Buccaneers a 10-7 lead. Still, the Conchs werent done. They cut the lead to 10-9 in the last of the seventh on a two-run single by Garcia, but with runners at first and second and two out, Valdes grounded out to end the game. Key West was coming off a 3-0 loss Wednesday to Dr. Phillips of Orlando in a game in which freshman Hunter Sellers pitched six and a third innings of relief, allowing only one run. Remarkably, considering the tourney trend, he didnt issue a walk. The Conchs managed three hits, two with one out in the seventh but Valdes hit into a game-ending double play. Key West will return to Rex Weech Field for games at 8 Friday night against Dade Christian and at 7:30 Saturday against St. Brendan, a contest that will determine the top seed in the District 4-Atournament.Baseball team drops 5 games in OrlandoBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASEBALL

The Dolphins went 3-0 on the Spring Break trip, including a pair of impressive wins over Class 7ASt. Cloud and Gateway high schools. Marathon shut out St. Cloud, 8-0, last Saturday and earned mercy-rule victories over Orlando Christian Prep on Monday, 16-1, and Gateway on Tuesday, 17-5. Coach Bob Roney said he was particularly impressed with Saturdays win over a strong St. Cloud team. Other than beating Florida Christian [for the first time this year] it was the most proud of them Ive been in three years of coaching, he said. Jordan [Roney] threw awesome and gave them nothing to hit. Everything they did hit was pop-ups or easy grounders. We made every play and didnt have one error. Jordan Roney finished with four strikeouts in a complete-game effort, walking just two and allowing four hits. Roney and Amanda Bruland each had three hits for the Dolphins, while Savannah Rodamer had two hits and Taylor Konrath had a bases-clearing triple. Konraths triple came in the top of the second inning to make it 3-0, scoring Brandi Spalten, Roney and Rodamer. The Dolphins added two more in the third inning, including a Roney two-run single, and another two in the fourth to make it 8-0. On Monday, Roney pitched the first two innings and struck out five of six batters against an overmatched Orlando Christian. Eighthgrader Hannah Child pitched the final three innings, striking out four, walking three and allowing two hits. The Dolphins scored seven runs in the second inning, three in the third, and six more in the fifth to earn the easy five-inning win. Kelsey Heller, Spalten and Roney all had three RBI, while Rodamer had three hits and a RBI. Sydney Konrath, Heller and Spalten each had two hits. On Tuesday, the Dolphins scored seven runs in the first two innings despite cold and windy conditions. Roney pitched three innings, striking out six batters, walking none and allowing just one hit. Child threw the final two, striking out one, walking three and allowing four hits. The Dolphins led 8-2 after three innings, but blew the game open with an eight-run fourth inning to make it 16-2. Gateway scored twice in the bottom of the fifth, but it wasnt enough to avoid the mercy-rule loss. Bruland was 3-for-4 with three singles and one RBI, while Sacha Olivera had two singles and four RBI. Sydney Konrath had two hits, while Spalten and Heller each had RBI singles.

By the time Facebook dominated social media, parents had joined the party, too. But the online scene has changed dramatically, as it turns out and these days even if youre friends with your own kids on Facebook, it doesnt mean you know what theyre doing. Thousands of software programs now offer cool new ways to chat and swap pictures. The most popular apps turn a hum-drum snapshot into artistic photography or broadcast your location to friends in case they want to meet you. Kids who use them dont need a credit card or even a cell phone, just an Internet connection and device such as an iPod Touch or Kindle Fire. Parents who want to keep up with the curve should stop thinking in terms of imposing time limits or banning social media services, which are stopgap measures. Experts say its time to talk frankly to kids about privacy controls and remind them again how nothing in cyberspace every really goes away, even when software companies promise it does. What sex education used to be, its now the technology talkwe have to have with our kids, said Rebecca Levey, a mother of 10-year-old twin daughters who runs a tween video review site and blogs about technology and educations issues. More than three-fourths of teenagers have a cell phone and use online social networking sites such as Facebook, according to the Pew Research Centers Internet and American Life Project. But Facebook for teens has become a bit like a school-sanctioned prom a rite of passage with plenty of adult chaperones while newer apps such as Snapchat and Kik Messenger are the much cooler after-party. Even Facebook acknowledged in a recent regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission that it was losing younger users: We believe that some of our users, particularly our younger users, are aware of and actively engaging with other products and services similar to, or as a substitute for, Facebook, the company warned investors in February. Educators say they have seen kids using their mobile devices to circulate videos of school drug searches to students sending nude images to girlfriends or boyfriends. Most parents, they say, have no idea. Astay-at-home mom of eight kids in Burke, Va., Eileen Patterson said she used to consider herself fairly tech savvy and frequently spends time on Facebook. But she was shocked to learn her kids could message their friends with just an iPod Touch mp3 player. She counts nine wireless devices in her home and has taken to shutting off her homes Wi-Fi after 9 p.m., but she describes her attempt to keep tabs on her kids online activity a war Im slowly losing every day. I find myself throwing up my hands every now and again, Patterson said. Then Ill see something on TVor read an article in the paper about some horrible thing that happened to some poor child and their family, and then I try to be more vigilant. Among the most popular mobile apps among kids is Instagram, free software that can digitally enhance photos and post them to your account online. Kids on Instagram whose parents closely monitor their text messages, Facebook posts or e-mails can also chat with their friends using the service. Their photos can also be shared on other social media sites such as Facebook, which bought Instagram last year.More appsThen theres Snapchat, among the top 10 free iPhone apps available. Snapchat lets a user send a text, photo or video that purportedly self-destructs within 10 seconds of being opened or warns a user if the recipient takes steps to quickly capture it for posterity before it disappears. Kik Messenger also allows unlimited texting for free and effectively offers anonymity to users. As with anything online, each of these services comes with caveats. Snapchat acknowledges on its website that messages arent guaranteed to disappear: Anyone receiving a text or photo can within 10 seconds capture a screenshot, taking a photo of their devices screen, and save that image. Video also can be downloaded, although Snapchat says it alerts senders when material is saved. Instagram is considered tame as long as kids adjust their privacy settings to limit who can see their photos and dont post nudity.Parents have a tough time keeping upBy ANNE FLAHERTYAssociated PressTECHNOLOGY NOTICE OFMEETING FOR THE MONROE COUNTYPARKS AND RECREATION ADVISORYBOARDAPARKS AND RECREATION ADVISORYBOARD meeting has been scheduled for Monday, April 15, 2013, 6:00 PM, at the Murray Nelson Government Center, MM102, Key Largo, Monroe County, Florida.

Brew on the Bay, a craft beer festival, opens its second year with the addition of a homebrew taste test, a flotilla of craft beers for patrons to sample, and even a Sunday brunch aboard a paddlewheel riverboat. The main attraction will be 1-5 p.m. Saturday, April 6, at Rowells Marina grounds, mile marker 104.5, bayside, when more than 80 craft beers will be the featured attraction. Florida Swamp Ale will be back, along with craft beer labels that run the gamut from Sea Dog Bluepaw to Monk In The Trunk Organic Amber Ale. Breweries represented at Brew on the Bay range from giants like Samuel Adams to small Florida outposts, including Tequesta Brewing Co. in Jupiter, Fl. and Cigar City Brewing from Tampa. A$35 general admission ticket is being sold online now; at the gate April 6, general admission tickets will cost $45. Ticket holders can enjoy unlimited samples of the various beers. And there will be specialty food vendors as well. Ever careful about public safety, the Key Largo Rotary Club has created a Designated Driver special admission ticket (cost $15) which gives those folks unlimited soft drinks, water and a big thankyou from the motoring public for keeping the heavy samplers off the roads. Live music, specialty foods and craft vendors add to the festivities for Saturdays main attraction. For early adopters of the craft beer movement, Rotary is offering a homebrew competition on Thursday, April 4, at Docs Diner, mile marker 97.7, bayside.

Thats one hour before the festival opens for everyone else with general admission tickets. On Sunday, April 7, sponsors have organized a civilized way to decompress from all that beer sampling. The Hangover Brunch will be held aboard the 78-foot Island Time, a paddlewheel riverboat that leaves the dock at mile marker 104, bayside, at 11 a.m. Tickets cost $30 for the cruise with food and beer pairings served during the 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. brunch cruise.

From April 5-13, he brings his Garland persona to Key Wests Waterfront Playhouse in Typhoon Judy. The story and characterization were created by Peterson and Darrin Hagen, with musical arrangments by Jim Rice. From the program notes: As Typhoon Viola swirls around Hong Kong, Judy Garland lies comatose in a hospital from a suicide attempt. In a hallucination, Typhoon Judy enters a desolate rehearsal hall with a lone piano player and begins to tell tales of her life with comedy, anecdotes and of course, song. For the last dozen years, Peterson has been performing his show Eyecons, a tribute to the Great Ladies of 20th Century show business, in the Crystal Room at Key Wests La Te Da. In 2008, he appeared in The Waterfront Playhouse production of BitchSlap! as Bette Davis. In 2003, he was part of a tribute to Jerry Herman for the Palm Springs Museum in the role of Zsa Zsa from the musical La Cage Aux Folles, co-starring with Peter Marshall. Peterson also appeared in the film, Rat Race, directed by Jerry Zucker and distributed by Paramount. Christopher did a stint as Lucille Ball in the film, playing alongside Cuba Gooding Jr. Earlier in his career, performing in Canada, Peterson won the Dora Award for Best Male Performance in Director Derek Goldbys production Poor Superman, which opened at The Manitoba Theatre Centre and then ran 20 weeks at Canadian Stage in Toronto. Broadway World, reviewing Petersons Typhoon Judy performance, writes: Mr. Peterson is a consummate actor and artist who amazes his audiences by channeling Judy Garland. Ticket prices for Typhoon Judy range from $20 to $50. Opening night tickets include a catered post-performance cast party in the Key West Sculpture Garden adjacent to the theater. The opening night party, April 5, is sponsored by Jeff Johnson and Hy Conrad.Peterson helped create character in the spotlightLAttitudes StaffTHEATER Poster for Typhoon Judy,which opens April 5 at The Waterfront Playhouse. PETERSON The Romans are credited with bringing beer-making techniques to northern Europe when they invaded in 55 B.C. Legions had outposts and extended Roman rule in parts of what are todays Germany, Belgium and northern France. The French, of course, took to wine making (also a Roman import) more so than beer. Climate and soils keep that divide pretty much in place centuries later colder, wetter conditions favor grains used in beer making, while warmer, drier weather support grape vineyards and winemaking. Geography helped, according to the Economist magazine, which profiled Belgiums role on the global stage of beer making. Abeer belt stretches across northern Europe, where it is too chilly to grow grapes that can be turned into half-decent wine. But the climate and the land are excellent for growing barley and hops, the basic ingredients of beer. Belgium likes to claim first dibs on beer-making recipes and brewing expertise, beginning in monasteries and then evolving with hand-craft brews found in small towns and on farms throughout the country. Becks Brewery was founded in 1553 and is still brewing today now owned by In-Bev. To this day, Belgium still boasts more breweries 1,131 than any other country in the world and earns a greater share of its export wealth from beer than any other nation. Perhaps the best-known of the Belgian brewers is Artois, which became In-Bev and in 2008 took over AnheiserBusch, becoming the worlds largest beer maker. They control a global portfolio of well-known brands like Budweiser, Michelob, Stella Artois, Becks, Bass, Brahma, Labatt and others.

The concert, organized by The Long Walk Home, Keys to Peace and others, hopes to raise money for a veterans outreach effort called Gyms Free. Beatlemaniax perform the classic hits from the Beatles touring era 1962-1966. In keeping with that time and style of music, all the band members wear 60s-era clothes and even use instruments like those favored by the Beatles. Even their bassist is a lefthanded player, just like Paul McCartney, the bands publicist notes. Jack Maravell, the lefthanded bassist, plays the violin-shaped, left-handed Hofner bass that is synonymous with Pauls image. Other members of the band include: Marc Sternberg, who plays the Rickenbacker 325 electric guitar and the Gibson J-160 acoustic-electric guitar, plugged of course through a Vox amplifier; Orlin Stoyanov, lead guitarist and vocalist, plays sixand 12string guitars, and channels George Harrison; Louie Diana, drums, percussion and vocals, plays Ludwigs Downbeat in Black Oyster Pearl drums, just as Ringo did and is featured singing Ringos I Wanna Be Your Man. Some of the Beatles faves on the song list include: Love Me Do, Please, Please Me, Twist and Shout, I Want to Hold Your Hand, Eight Days a Week, Cant Buy Me Love, Nowhere Man, Yesterday and more. Tickets cost $20 in advance; $25 at the door. The 6-9 p.m. concert will be held in the auditorium at Coral Shores High, mile marker 89.9, oceanside.

Birds of the Evergladesopens in AprilArtist Photographer Mary Keithan will be the featured artist in the Ernest F. Coe Visitors Center Gallery during the month of April, The exhibition comes from her time spent in the Everglades last year under a program called Artist-inResidency-in-theEverglades. Keithans interest in photography began in 1968 during a family trip to Europe when her father gave her a camera that she still has today. She received a fine arts degree from Juniata College in Huntingdon, PA., then completed a masters degree at Pennsylvania State University. In 2004, the Michiganbased photographer took a month long trip to photograph the Everglades. Fascinated by the biological wealth of this subtropical wilderness, Keithan has returned to the Everglades on an annual photographic expedition. Ameet-and-greet reception for the artist will be held 1-3 p.m. Sunday, April 7. Admission is free. The Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center is located at 40001 State Road 9336, approximately 10 miles southwest of Florida City.
