I would have liked to celebrate and enjoy the athletic accomplishment, but I dont think I have the right to, knowing all those people were injured and killed, Coley said Wednesday. I just need to be happy my daughter wasnt hurt and were home safe. Ill just have to reflect on that. After completing the marathon in 3 hours and 11 minutes, Coley initially felt like celebrating. He came in 4,014th out of the 27,000 runners. But after the carnage caused by the bombs that exploded about 50 minutes after he crossed the finish line Monday, Coley, 46, said he finds it hard to focus on his feat.His daughter is 21-yearold Amy, who went to Boston to cheer on her dad. She joined him in finishing the race when he passed the Lenox Hotel, which is just half a block away on Boylston Street from the finish line.While Coley said he plans to go back and run the marathon again next year, hes not sure Amy will join him. I dont know, she was pretty unnerved. She followed me to the finish line, which is right where the bomb went off 50 minutes later, he said. The Coleys were back in their hotel room about two blocks away when the blasts went off. They decided to stay put. By the time they realized what had happened, police had closed off the area. There was one other Key West runner in the marathon, Sarah Williams. The Coleys tried to call her, but cell phone reception was pretty much dead immediately after the attack. They finally texted her and she told them she was safe and unharmed. Williams is originally from the Boston area and her local friends picked her up and drove her to safety,Coley completes the Boston Marathon 50 minutes before the deadly blastsBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodue@keysreporter.comBOSTON MARATHON BOMBING Dredge plan dead with board voteAcontroversial proposal to dredge a boating channel through a Florida Keys seagrass flat sank like a stone Thursday.This is plowing up the ocean bottom. Theres no nicer way to put it, Monroe County Commissioner Sylvia Murphy said in rejecting a plan forwarded for a 700-foot channel into private Walkers Island near Duck Key.County commissioners unanimously agreed that a redredging plan laboriously crafted over several years by Little Conch Key Development Corp. does not mesh with current environmental protections and awareness.Opponents of the dredging contend approval would have set a precedent to allow dredging anywhere in the Keys.Conservation, preservation and restoration has been the goal for decades, Commissioner Danny Kolhage said. Approval of this sends a message that were reversing what weve been doing for the last 30 years.Developer Thomas Cirrito and land-use consultant Sandra Walters said mitigation measures and new protections would safeguard the surrounding 26-acre flat, while allowing owners of eight oceanfront units access to bring larger boats to the dock.The channel has silted in over the decades, creatingWith seagrass, channel now is a meadowCOUNTY COMMISSIONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com LeBaron jury nearly seatedAt least 176 potential jurors were interviewed in Key West this week as attorneys work to move forward in the first-degree murder trial of Jonathon Leo LeBaron, accused of beating to death 57-year-old Richard Gardner in 2009.Chief Assistant State Attorney Manny Madruga said Friday that attorneys from both sides were still conducting individual interviews with prospective jurors because its a death-penalty case.Were still going through the individual jury inquiries about various topics, and that will leave us with a panel that well engage in general questioning on Monday. The anticipation is well have a jury by Monday afternoon, he said.Madruga, prosecuting with co-counsel Val Winter, said its a combination of the length of the trial, deathpenalty issues and media exposure. Its very difficult for people who are selfemployed to be able to serve for three weeks. Madruga said he expects to 50 potential jurors would be involved in the open-court general questioning Monday. Astart time for the hearing was not announced by press time. LeBaron, 36, is accused of killing Gardner, from Cape Coral, aboard Gardners boat at a Stock Island marina on Feb. 10, 2009. The chief witness against LeBaron is his then-girlfriend, Kristen Whitmore. Whitmore pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and is serving 18 years in prison. Gardner had allowed her to stay on his boat, and she led LeBaron to the vessel intending to rob Gardner.Instead, LeBaron allegedly beat Gardner to death, then stole his car. He and Whitmore were arrested in Midvale, Utah, 12 days after the killing based on an anonymous tip to police.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comIN THE COURTSCourthouse ready to reopenMarathon courthouse employees are moving boxes into their new digs now that a nearly two-year remodel is complete. We have completed the job and instructed the court personnel that they can move back into the courthouse. This all happened within the last five days, Monroe County Project Management Director Jerry Barnett said. Barnett said the total cost of construction came to $1.3 million, with another $80,862 going to Key Westbased architecture firm mbik2m for design. The project began on Aug. 1, 2011, but two major change orders significantly delayed its completion. The first was to replace old air conditioning units. In the beginning, we were going to keep some of the ... units, but from design to construction, we had some of those fail so we replaced them, Barnett said. Construction was then halted on Dec. 27, 2012, when mold and asbestos were found in the building. The County Commission approved a $165,000 contract in January to remove it. Barnett said significant changes were made to the courthouse, including rearranging the jury room and visiting judgeschambers. Public bathrooms were remodeled and another compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act was constructed. The security entrance remains in the same place but was enlarged and upgraded, Barnett said.2-year remodel of the building hit some snagsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYThis is the revamped courtroom at the Marathon courthouse near mile marker 48.5.An 18-month,$1.3 million remodel of the building was completed within the past week.See Runner,2ASee Dredge,3ASee Courthouse,2A

Williams could not be reached for comment.Also running the marathon from the Keys was Miroslava Bedo, 61, from Tavernier, who finished in 4:04:34.Friday, a massive manhunt dragged out for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19. He had eluded authorities in Boston the day after he and his brother, Tamerlan, got into the shootout with law enforcement. That was Thursday night, hours after the FBI released their photos, saying they were the prime bombing suspects. The pair were found after they robbed a 7-Eleven, carjacked a man and killed an MITsecurity officer, Coley said the most impressive collective trait among the people of Boston is their warmth and generosity. Being raised in Alabama, he thought the south held the monopoly on hospitality. He was pleasantly surprised. He said the horrors of the bombing dont detract from his newfound fondness for the people of Massachusetts. The people of Hopkinton [where the race began] treated us as though we were family, and that was before the bombing, Coley said. Afterwards, everyone was doing everything to make us feel accommodated and welcome. They were as courteous and kind as anyone from anywhere else Ive ever been and I certainly will go back.Coley relievedFrom Runner,1A Everybody is starting to move back in now. Judge [Ruth] Becker and her assistant are in there now and were having the first day of court in there on April 25, Court Administrator Holly Elomina said.In addition to the main building, a trailer was installed that has been serving as the main courtroom during construction. It will continue to be used by visiting judges, magistrates and for traffic court, Elomina said.The monthly traffic court, as well as jury selection, was being held in commission chambers at the Marathon Government Center during the remodel. Both will now move back to the main courthouse, Elomina said. The courthouse was furnished using the Court Facilities Fund, which collects a $25 fee for every traffic ticket issued in the county. Elomina said the total cost was $157,100.Courts readyFrom Courthouse,1A Charges likely in fatal bridge crashCriminal charges are likely in a Wednesday Seven Mile Bridge crash that killed a Michigan man, the Florida Highway Patrol says.Troopers said Floyd Devos, 79, was driving a 1999 Chevrolet with 76year-old Nancy Devos in the passenger seat. The car was headed southbound at mile marker 46 at 8:50 p.m. At the same time, a 2013 Nissan driven by Xavier Ycaza, 23, of Golden Beach in Miami-Dade County was heading northbound.Ycaza, whom troopers say had been drinking, drove into the southbound lane without slowing and struck the Chevy head-on. The Nissan caught fire. Marathon Fire Rescue and Monroe County Fire Rescue responded to the crash.Floyd Devos died before he could be taken by air ambulance to the Ryder Trauma Center in MiamiDade County, said FHPLt. Kathleen McKinney. Nancy Devos and Ycaza were airlifted to Ryder. Nancy Devos is listed in critical condition, according to the FHP. Ycaza was in stable condition before medics loaded him onto the helicopter, McKinney said. The bridge was used as a landing zone for both the countys TraumaStar helicopter and a LifeNet chopper. The bridge reopened around 1 a.m. Thursday. The fatality was the ninth traffic death of the year in Monroe County.Michigan man is Keys9th 2013 fatalityMARATHONKeynoter StaffDevelopers of a proposed immense shopping center on Rockland Key dont want to provide affordable housing but Monroe County commissioners insist they do.The project at mile marker 9 got a major concession from commissioners Wednesday when the board declared it exempt from Monroe Countys nonresidential rate-of-growth ordinance, known as NROGO, for commercial property.The county also approved the Rockland Key Commercial Retail Center Overlay District, a special area intended to facilitate permitting. However, commissioners said when writing a development agreement, the next step in the process, they likely will include some provision for workforce housing. When center developer David Garfunkel and consultant Owen Trepanier balked at a pledge to build or provide some affordable housing, Mayor George Neugent erupted.Shame on you, Neugent said. Youre going to build a meeting room but you dont build the affordable housing for workers that youre going to need to be working in that facility. Shame on you.Garfunkel, a Savannah, Ga., businessman, suggested most of the estimated 600 employees eventually hired to staff stores and restaurants are already here.That could include an untapped group from the ranks of Florida Keys retirees who might be looking forward for the opportunity to go back to work, he said. Commissioner Heather Carruthers, who runs a Key West resort, cautioned that the Keysextraordinarily low unemployment rate means finding reliable and competent staff can be a challenge, given the cost of living.Garfunkel said after lowering the amount of space available for commercial lease and providing enhancements like a community meeting room, the return on investment could not cover worker housing. Commissioners and the developers did compromise on the final of amount of building space at 335,000 square feet under roof at the complex. Developers originally sought 500,000 square feet, which would have been more than double the size of Trade Winds Plaza in Key Largo. No anchor tenant has been confirmed but discussions frequently referenced space needs of stores like Wal-Mart or Target. In a related issue, commissioners concluded that specific circumstances of the 33-acre Rockland Key site can exempt it from NROGO requirements. Those include the large amount of square footage eligible under the current Industrial zoning, and the scarified nature of the island. Mangroves and wetlands would still be protected. Commissioners could not settle on a way to use the countys 10-year bank of unused NROGO square footage allocations to allow the proposed Rockland Key center without hindering other commercial projects in unincorporated Monroe.Former County Attorney Jim Hendrick, currently barred from practicing law, told the commission that the NROGO system he helped devise should be scrapped.It was a temporary expedient at best, Hendrick said, comparing the current version to a 1954 Chevy on the streets of Havana ... being kept alive with baling wire and duct tape. It simply doesnt work any more. Commissioner Danny Kolhage said NROGO may be imperfect but no other system is readily available to take its place. We have what we have now, he said.Developer protests the potential costROCKLAND KEYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comRaschein gets key appointmentFreshman state Rep. Holly Raschein (R-Key Largo) could have a direct say on whether Keys governments get another $50 million in sewer construction funding to divvy up this year. Raschein legislative assistant Erin Muir said Raschein was appointed Thursday to the House Appropriations Conference Committee on Agricultural and Natural Resources. Speaker Will Weatherford (R-Wesley Chapel) made the appointment. Muir said Raschein specifically requested a spot on the conference committee.Raschein was a member of the Agriculture and Natural Resources Appropriations Subcommittee, one of five committees and subcommittees to which she was appointed in November.But lots of power lies in conference committees, where the House and Senate try to reconcile their respective budgets.The wastewater money is going to come through in conference and so its huge that she was appointed to this committee, Muir said. Last year, the first $50 million of a promised $200 million over four years made its way from Tallahassee to Keys sewer work. The state has mandated central sewage treatment for all of the Keys by December 2015.Monroe County ($30 million) and Islamorada ($20 million) split that first $50 million to jump-start their respective wastewater projects.Local government officials have agreed that if awarded the second $50 million this year, Marathon and the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District would each receive $20 million. The Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority would receive $5 million, Key West $4 million and Key Colony Beach $1 million.Muir said Raschein the conference committee was set to meet Friday afternoon. She said there are eight members from the House and six members from the Senate, as well as at-large members from the House and Senate that serve on multiple conference committees. Meanwhile, it appears a pair of Raschein-sponsored bills, dealing with how the Aqueduct Authority board is chosen and lowering feral-cat populations statewide, wont be enacted.Raschein filed HB 1121, which would do away with gubernatorial appointments in favor of elected Aqueduct Authority board members, after Keys voters overwhelmingly approved a November referendum to do so. The bill was approved by unanimously by both the State Affairs and Local and Federal Affairs committees, but its companion in the Senate (SB 1774) has not been heard at all. State Sen. Dwight Bullard, whose district includes Monroe County, sponsored the Senate side.Its made a lot of traction in the House but the Senate has yet to take it up at all, Bullard spokesman Sean Nixon said.Shes on panel where $50M may be given OKBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comSTATE LEGISLATURE Subscriptions 743-5551 abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJ LINEBAUGHLinebaugh, Johnnie E. 09/04/1920 04/11/2013 Johnnie E.

spots less than a foot deep. Seagrass has taken root. The applicants contend the project would be redredging, not new dredging.Channel marking and signage leading to existing docks is hugely effective, Walters said. This is better public policy than the status quo.Marine contractors John Coffin and Rudy Krause supported the project, saying that restoring the channel would cause minimal damage to the marine ecosystem and prevent new groundings on the flat.But environmental and Upper Keys homeowners groups weighed in against the concept of allowing dredging of channels created a half-century ago.The proposal to create a special comprehensive landuse amendment would allow deeper-draft boats than [the channel] ever accommodated, said Nova Southeastern University law professor Richard Grosso, who brought a contingent of legal interns to speak at the hearing at the Marathon Government Center.Dredging in the Keys during the 1950s seemed to make sense then but its viewed as barbaric now, said Grosso, who used to be a county planner and helped write Monroes land-use plan.Fishing-guides associations submitted letters against destroying habitat needed for sportfish species.Fishing is our most important asset. People dont come here to play golf, environmental activist Charlie Causey said. Absolutely every chance we get to protect seagrass and water quality, we should do it.They bought the property knowing the seagrass flat is there and knowing the channel is not there, said Dottie Moses of Key Largo. Now they want to bring in their 34-foot boats. Commissioners agreed. If you have a channel and allow it to reach the point this has reached, you dont have a channel any more, David Rice said. You have a seagrass meadow.Heather Carruthers suggested the property owners buy flats skiffs or kayaks. You still have access, she said. Just a different kind of access.Murphy suggested they keep their larger boats at marinas.

He said the search came up empty. Georgina Hosek almost stepped on the croc on April 6 as she attempted to launch her kayak from a small ramp on the canal. Her house is adjacent to the vacant lot, which has a large amount of mulch, a boat and other items stored on it. I didnt find any eggs. It doesnt mean they werent there but sometimes the nest site is difficult to find, Hord said. I found out where she was definitely scratching and piling up some mulch under the boat, but didnt find any eggs in the most likely areas, and I didnt see her, either. Hord said hes been in contact with the property owners, who indicated they are quite happy with [the crocodiles] presence.But Hord also said some other residents of Tingler werent as comfortable with the crocodiles presence, but noted more and more would likely turn up as the animals population increases.Their population has rebounded from 200 to 300 animals 30 years ago to around 2,000 now statewide. American crocodiles generally arent aggressive like alligators. Shes not a very large crocodile and its possible shes not reproductively active yet, Hord said. Its possible shes just feeling the urges and going through the motions. Its not impossible there will be a nest there or its one of the spots she was just trying out.The only realistic way to deal with it is adapt and accept the fact were going to have crocodiles around. Our job is to get people to accept the reality of what the future will be, and we have to learn to accommodate these things and do things to minimize any dangers they pose, he said.The FWC generally prefers to leave crocodiles alone but will attempt to remove them upon request. However, they have a habit of returning to their favorite spots.An 8-foot female croc dubbed Crocodolly has made headlines for returning to a bayside neighborhood on Plantation Key three times in two years. She had been captured and taken to a remote area in Florida Bay, then continually returned. She even has her own Facebook page.But female could nest in futureBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYThis is where authorities believed a 6to 7-foot American crocodile could have been nesting,in the mulch under the boat.Lindsey Hord,a state crocodile response coordinator, investigated the lot Wednesday and found no evidence of croc eggs.Valhalla getting fishing-related resortBass Pro Shops founder and owner John Morris has reportedly bought all but one residential parcel on Marathons Valhalla Island in hopes of building a resort or kids fishing camp of some kind.I know hes planning a really cool, very detailed, authentic fishing kind of resort, Mike Dunham, Morrisproperty manager, told the Keynoter I think the final style design is in process, but I do know the accommodations would be very nice and it would have a lot of activities and amenities besides the fishing opportunities.Dunham said Morris has owned the majority of the land on Valhalla for 25 years and acquired the Valhalla Point Resort and Valhalla Beach Hotel & Resort at the end of last year. Both properties are now closed. Were assessing the most viable options for the property. [Morris has] considered a fishing retreat, a resort for fisherman, or a camp for kids and outdoor education. His real goal is to connect people to fishing and nature, Dunham said. Were doing some work to clean up the property and will probably be developing a final plan in the near future. City Planning Director George Garrett said hes met with Morris and Upper Keys attorney Nick Mulick, who represents Morris, about preliminary plans for a resort. Mulick said Morrisplans for now are to clean up the recently acquired hotel properties and that any resort design is not imminent. The entire U.S. 1 frontage at mile marker 56.5 just recently was covered with new mulch. Were trying to make sure the property is something that everyone would prefer it to look like, he said. Theres no site or conceptual plan. Theres just tossing ideas around of the best way to use the site. Mulick points out that the existing motel properties on the island were mom-andpop establishments and that Morris would likely plan something larger in scale. If the Bass Pro Shops brand including the World Wide Sportsman in Islamorada is any indication, that could be the case. The fishing, hunting, camping and outdoor goods giant is well known for its spacious retail locations.Bass Pro Shops founder Morris plans upgradesBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMIDDLE KEYS

For a decade, infrastructure sales tax revenue had been used for higher priority projects. With the tax extension running until 2033, money would finally be available to maintain county roads and bridges. Most of those I talk with believe quality of life is very important to both residents and visitors alike. Longrange planning for quality-of-life projects, and scheduling these investments as money becomes available, is good management. Each of the municipalities within Monroe County receives its share of infrastructure sales tax revenue. Once they have fully funded wastewater, they will use that revenue as they see fit.I heard what I thought was a promise that once wastewater was fully funded, unincorporated Monroe Countys share of these revenues would be used catch up the long-neglected maintenance of county roads and bridges. After funding the backlog, these revenues would establish sufficient funding going forward to assure bridge structures remain safe and the road surface and drainage are addressed. Just as I heard wastewater first, I heard roads and bridges are next.With a not-so-distant memory of previous quality-of-life funding decisions, I ask each commissioner to assure that the extended infrastructure sales tax revenue stream is not diverted from roads and bridges until the above promise is fulfilled. Bill Hunter Sugarloaf KeyCorrect misperceptionRe: The editorial of April 12, Fire commissionersbrinkmanship could mean trouble for the district. Your editorial was misleading to your readers. There will be no loss of fire services even if the Key Largo Fire-Rescue Department Inc. does not agree to changes in its contract with the Key Largo Fire-Rescue and Emergency Medical Services District. The firemen who want stay with the department will have that opportunity. Those who choose to not stay will be replaced by others from this community and from Miami-Dade County. Another erroneous point is the district has no direct control over the department it only has the authority to dispense funds to the department. At two different meetings, I have read, verbatim, from the 2007 audit/evaluation, which states unequivocally that this is a misconception that needs to be corrected. It states the district should exhibit greater control over the department as intended by the state Legislature when it was created.Contrary to your assertion, we did give specific reasons to terminate, although the legal terminology is for no cause.Again, you are incorrect when indicating that the district wants to appoint the department board. But in a period of transition, the new chief should be able to appoint an interim board and that seven-member board should have two at-large members. That board, made up of volunteers only, should be elected by eligible firefighters who are verified residents of Monroe County. We want accountability, checks and balances.You have a point about this issue relating to power. This department is a virtual fiefdom, run without restraint, oversight, transparency or checks and balances. It is the districts responsibility to correct glaring inequities. It is our contention that money will be saved, with no slush fund, fewer chiefs vehicles and other items. Why didnt you refer to the $8,700 the district refused to fund at the last meeting that was requested for travel for four unnamed firemen to a convention?One we expected to go was someone whose name was stitched on two department shirts. He had not been to a volunteer event in more than a year here. And he happens to be Chief Sergio Garcias brother-in-law. Something like this happens every month. Someone needs to be thinking of the taxpayers.With no reduction in combat fire protection, we also dont expect insurance premiums to rise. Ultimately, it is about protecting the community and the taxpayers The idea that we are jumping the gun is ludicrous. This has been going on for years, and if this is allowed to continue until the end of the contract, we will have lost any impetus for positive change. The behind-the-scene issues will only get worse if allowed to continue unchecked. Bob Thomas, commissioner Key Largo When is the Monroe County School Board going to do the right thing for our students? I attend many of the meetings and listen to School Board members pontificate about how their vote will be construed. My vote will be viewed as being political. I am tired of all of the mendacity going on in the political arena while my kidseducation opportunities suffer more and more with every year that passes. Vote for what you know is the right thing to do. That is what you were elected to do. In many, if not all, of the recent community engagement sessions Superintendent Mark Porter held throughout the Florida Keys, the School Board members were rated a failing grade, while the teachers and other school-related employees all received very high marks both by the communitiesstandards and the states.As a matter of fact, the School District employees have earned an Arating every year since the 2005-06 school year. But the Monroe County School Board members have completely failed their employees when they voted to impose seven furlough days on all employees for the second year in a row.The United Teachers of Monroe invite you to come support your Monroe County School District employees in a public meeting on Monday in the Marathon High School Media Center beginning at 5:30 p.m. This is the final step in the impasse process for the United Teachers of Monroe.The legislative hearing is not a negotiation session. Its more like a court session. After UTM and the School Boards attorney present their positions, the School Board, acting as a legislative body, is empowered to take such actions as it deems to be in the public interest, including the interest of the employees involved. On behalf of the teachers and other school-related personnel, UTM is rejecting the seven furlough days the School Board insists are needed to balance its budget.Remember when the sky was falling and the School District was in danger of falling below the required 3 percent fund balance? Oddly enough, the annual financial report that all school districts must file with the state shows that the School District ended that school year with a 7.12 percent fund balance. Thats a far cry from the state requirement. In addition, the county schools budget for 2012-13 projects more revenue for the 2012-13 school year, so we ask, Really? Seven more furlough days?With all of the recent sequester stories, many of you already know that a furlough day is supposed to reduce the number of days that employees work because an employer has the need to reduce its pay. The Monroe County School Board didnt even have the decency to give the employees seven days off. Instead, they reduced our pay without reducing our work year. Thats not a furlough, thats a pay cut. Seven days working for free represents a 3.6 percent pay cut for Monroe school employees.There are nine school districts in Florida that have a fund balance percentage that is lower than that of the Monroe County School District. None of those nine school districts furloughed their employees let alone furloughed their employees for seven days for two years in a row. I take that back. Broward County is one of the nine whose fund balance is a smaller percentage than that of Monroes. In Broward, the School Board agreed with its employees that they could take two furlough days or they could engage in professional development to earn those two days of pay. And that agreement was for the 2011-2012 school year. No furlough days for Broward this school year. The Monroe County School Board is completely failing its employees. Its made promises it hasnt kept and made claims of UTM demanding raises that simply are not true. Its time the School Board treats its employees with the dignity and respect we deserve. Enough is enough. Please join us Monday evening at the Marathon High School Media Center beginning at 5:30 p.m. Editors note: School Board member Andy Griffiths received a copy of this column (not from the Keynoter) before it went to print. He says: The union president is correct in that the districts total fund balance exceeded 7 percent. However, the districts unassigned fund balance was 5.22 percent. The difference between the two are non-spendable items such as inventories and prepaid items, open purchase orders and contracts, and remaining balances from categorical programs that are required to be set aside. The board does have a policy to maintain a 5 percent. Holly Hummell-Gorman has been a teacher in the Monroe County School District since 1996. She taught Spanish and English for Speakers of Other Languages at the elementary level. Currently she serves as president of the United Teachers of Monroe.GUEST COLUMNSchool Board disrespects teachers HUMMELL-GORMAN LETTERS TO THE EDITORBuild trail at what cost?Coming home from Key West last Saturday, I was astounded to see the carnage left along U.S. 1 from the construction of the Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail. Boardwalks tearing through mangroves. On the east end of Sugarloaf Key, a mountain of mulch composed of huge gumbo limbos, some 14 inches across, as well as blolly, stopper and poisonwood reduced to chips. These important native hardwood trees produce fruit for migratory birds, especially the white-crowned pigeon.The sad evidence of native stumps seeping their last uptake along the roadside, laying way for the new Heritage Trail, seems a lofty price to pay for a so called greenway project.Paula Cannon Big Pine KeyDeveloper of planned Rockland center already given break with permits, doesnt need any more concessionsWatching lawyers edit Monroe County code on the fly in Wednesdays County Commission meeting was a real nail biter. The public hearing was called to amend regulations in the countys nonresidential rate-of-growth ordinance, known as NROGO, and carve out a new overlay district that eases development of a large-scale commercial shopping center on Rockland Key. As county Growth Management Director Christine Hurley explained various options and offered her staffs recommendations, the process was fraught with confusion and grandstanding from the applicants who seek to create big-box retail where scarified industrial property sits largely idle today. There was surprisingly little organized opposition to the proposed development. But questions raised by the scale of the project, and some last-minute reluctance to sign on to an affordable housing commitment, quickly brought a testy mood to the Harvey Government Center. At one point, Mayor George Neugent almost lost his cool, arguing with the prospective developer and his consultant over the need for an estimated 50 units of affordable housing.Shame on you, Neugent said. Youre going to build a meeting room but you dont build the affordable housing for workers that youre going to need to be working in that facility. Shame on you.The developer, David Garfunkel of Savannah, Ga., spoke volumes when he opened his remarks by saying his mouth frequently gets him in trouble. I totally, totally disagree with you on public housing, he opened. I dont know where someone thinks money in a shopping center comes from. Saying he already lost desired square footage and other concessions in negotiations, Garfunkel asked, Then if I come in and build public housing, where is the money coming from? He followed that with the dubious assertion that much of the centers estimated 600-employee workforce might consist of retirees who may already be here and looking forward for the opportunity to go back to work. Why that image of Wal-Mart greeters didnt draw guffaws from the dais is only because county commissioners were trying to be polite. Commissioner Heather Carruthers, who runs a Key West business, did point out the difficulty Keys employers face in keeping competent staff, given the high cost of island living particularly housing. It smacks of arrogance for an out-of-town developer who first proposed building 500,000 square feet of commercial space at Key Wests doorstep, then argued that affordable housing wont be impacted. In the end, commissioners accepted some amended language drafted by the developerslawyers. Citing Rockland Keys unique situation, they also agreed to exempt the massive complex from needing buildingpermit square-footage allocations a huge break for the developer. But commissioners also made it clear that any development agreement for the project will contain a requirement for some type of affordable housing linked directly to building rights. Thats not been done before under NROGO. The commission also reduced the scope of the project to 335,000 square feet, down from the original request. Now at least the developer and the builder get to share in some nail biting that lies ahead as this project proceeds further through the approval process.Youre going to build a meeting room but you dont build the affordable housing for workers that youre going to need to be working in that facility. Shame on you. Mayor George Neugent .......

Donna Farmer fully expected to close her Maytag Clean Laundry the only Laundromat between mile markers 29 and 82 in Marathon on March 31. That was the day her state Department of Environmental Protection wastewater permit extension expired. But on March 29 Good Friday she got a surprise offer from a potential buyer.That, she said, led DEPto extend her permit another month, until April 30, so she and the prospective buyer, from New England but with a home in Marathon, could see if a deal could be worked out. She said the prospective buyer became interested when told the house hes renting doesnt have a washer or dryer and that the Laundromat would need to be used.If no deal can be swung, Farmer said, the Laundromat will definitely close April 30. That would be a blow to residents and visitors who have no other access to washers and dryers, since they would have to drive to Islamorada or Big Pine Key to do their laundry, or invest in a washing machine and possibly a dryer.The issue comes down to sewer bills. Like everyone else in Marathon, Farmer must connect to the citywide central sewer system. But doing that means spending around $40,000 to abandon her septic tank and install a wastewater lift station. Additionally, the city is charging her for 19.11 equivalent dwelling units based on the amount of wastewater generated. EDUs cost $4,730 each based on expected daily water use. Additionally, a June 2009 fire at the Maytag cost her $100,000 in new equipment. On that, she said she still owes $70,000. The City of Marathon Marina has a laundry facility, but its keycard-protected and open only to marina customers.

Cates kicks off re-election bidSix months ahead of the next citywide election, Key West political candidates have already started preparations for the general election scheduled for Oct. 1. Mayor Craig Cates will run for his third consecutive term marked by a Tuesday campaign kick-off party that was scheduled at the Square One restaurant in Old Town.Unlike his first two terms, which were for two years, this time around Cates is running for a one-year term as the city conforms its election cycle with that of Monroe County, Florida and the federal government. Cates has made addressing issues related to the citys declining homeless population the centerpiece of his tenure in office and is championing relocation of the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter on Stock Island, along with an expanded offering of 24/7 services, rather than just sundown to sunup.Last year voters passed an amendment to the citys charter moving elections from odd-numbered to evennumbered years. During the transition, elected terms for mayor and commissioner will be shortened. For instance, if Cates is elected to a third term this year, hell serve one year term. After that, in 2014, the mayoral term goes back to two years. Its the same for the district commissioners who serve four-year terms. Whoever is elected as a commissioner will serve until 2016, followed by a return to the four-year term.District 1 Commissioner Jimmy Weekley, District 3 Commissioner Billy Wardlow and District 6 Commissioner Clayton Lopez are up for reelection this year.None of the incumbents have picked up candidacy documents from the City Clerks Office but all have indicated theyll seek another term. Civic watchdog and former Weekley challenger Tom Milone is reprising his candidacy. When the two politicos met in 2009, Weekley, who had previously served more than 20 years as commissioner and mayor, beat Milone 631 votes to 295 votes.In the run-up to that election, Milone, a retired New York court clerk, was the victim of a brutal mugging that left him with numerous injuries, including a wired jaw.The three commission seats not up this year are set for a 2015 contest, meaning all of the terms will be normalized by 2018. The Oct. 1 general election is followed by a Nov. 5 runoff if needed.Mayor seeks shortened third termBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comAU.S. diplomat and former American ambassador to the United Nations sees the change in leadership in Venezuela as a positive trend for that country, one that is inevitable to carry over into Cuba.John Bolton served as under secretary of state for President George W. Bush before serving as ambassador to the U.N. He had been viewed as one of the most outspoken, unrelenting and flamboyant members of Bushs cabinet. Bolton also worked under the Bush and Reagan administrations within the State and Justice departments, as well as the Agency for International Development. During a recent trip to St. Louis for a speaking engagement, he took time to discuss foreign policy. I think Hugo Chavez death is unquestionably a good thing for the United States, its a good thing for the people of Venezuela, its a good thing for the western hemisphere, he said. And I think the election that was just concluded on Sunday shows that the Chavezmo is not likely to survive. Without Chavez, [Nicolas] Maduros victory was less than 2 percentage points. Thats undoubtedly within the margin of votes that he stole. He believes the turnover of power there will ultimately affect Cuba as well as Cuban-Americans. Although Maduro was sworn in Friday, Bolton said fundamentally, the Chavez legacy cannot stand much longer, and that bodes well for Cuba.That is a very good sign for the people of Venezuela who might be afraid of that authoritarian regime, but also the democratic government elsewhere in the western hemisphere will not be threatened by the combination of the Chavez and Castro regime trying to export their particular brand of authoritarianism, Bolton said. It may be a while in coming, but I think its also a good sign for Cuba that once Fidel passes from the scene that that regime will collapse, as well.Bolton added that Castros family will try to carry on his political legacy; he does not think it will succeed.I think Fidel is such an iconic figure that when he goes, the forces within Cuban society that want to overturn the regime will come out in the streets the Ladies in White, for example, the people inside Cuba who are trying to express themselves, and then obviously you have the CubanAmerican community that will not miss that opportunity.Bolton also discussed North Korea, China and Iran, and holds the same hard-line stance he did while serving Republican leadership: That negotiations are futile. He also accuses the Obama Administration of being soft on foreign relations, and says that approach could lead to America being taken by surprise. Bolton has been called a neo-conservative, but rejects that term. Im not a neo-conservative, he said. I dont have any adjectives before the word conservative.I was for Goldwater when I was 15, OK? Neo-conservatives were once defined at the beginning of the Reagan Administration that said a neo-conservative is a liberal who has been mugged by reality, and Ive never been a liberal.He has worked in the past with another staunchly conservative Republican, U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who represented the Keys for 10 years before being redistricted based on the 2010 census.Jessica Machetta is managing editor of Missourinet News, a Missouri news network for radio stations.

Down by five runs against Redland Christian Academy in the District 16 semifinal, ICS junior Amanda Ihrig slammed a three-run homer that spurred the comeback. Ihrig also was the winning pitcher, throwing an eight-hitter with six strikeouts. She allowed just two earned runs. The win put ICS (6-10) into the district final Friday against Colonial Christian. Results were pending at press time. Were definitely the underdog but our district is pretty even, coach Kaitlynn Loy said. Id rather be the underdog than the team expected to win. As long as our girls play hard, Ill be happy.The pressure of a district tournament got to our girls at first but our pitching and defense kept us in the game until our hitting came along, Loy said of the semifinal. It was a total team win. Hope VanMunster, a junior, and Oriana Mendez, a middle-schooler, both went 2-for-3. Jasmine Theodosiou tripled while Gina Betancourt and Jazmin Riverea each delivered key hits.As a district finalist, the Eagles earn a spot in the regional.

Times and sites will be settled by outcomes of other districts.Boys head coach Barney Rich calculated that playing some of the states best squads in the regular season would pay off in the postseason. It worked; Coral Shores stands at 6-7 overall but went 5-0 against district foes. The Canes dispatched Palmer Trinity in an 18-3 semifinal Tuesday to reach the District 30 final against Palmetto. Scoring highlights were not available at press time. The Lady Canes (9-2) dispatched their two tournament opponents by a combined 3312, and extending their winning streak to six straight.

Kaitlyn OLeary continued her late-season spree with six goals and an assist.

Palmer again does in DolphinsFor the second straight year, the Marathon High School baseball team settled for second place in the South Florida Baseball Conference after falling short Tuesday in a championship game matchup with Palmer Trinity School in Miami, 9-3. The six-team conference is made up of similarly sized schools that play each other twice during the course of the season. Its outside of normal District 16 play for the Dolphins. Senior starter Todd Picariello struggled early, allowing seven earned runs through just 1.2 innings. Coach Luis Leal said Picariello couldnt locate his fastball or throw curveballs for strikes. He just didnt have it that day, Leal said. He was off the plate or down the middle and he hit a guy, too. Before we knew it, the game was out of hand. Richie Wells and Jason Cadwell pitched well in relief, allowing one run each over the games final 5.1 innings. Wells threw 1.2 innings, while Cadwell came on in the fourth and finished the game. Marathon held the lead for a brief time after scoring once in the top of the first. Senior Ian Almodovar walked and, in typical fashion for him, stole second and third.Kyle Pierce walked with one out and attempted to steal second base. He was thrown out but Almodovar scored from third to make it 1-0.The lead didnt last, though, as Palmer honed in on Picariello from the start. The Falcons put up three runs in the first inning and four more in the second to take a 7-1 lead. Palmer added a run in each of the third and fourth innings, while Marathon scored once in the fourth and sixth. The Dolphins were unable to get much going offensively to close the gap. Senior Kevin McKeon had a hit and an RBI, while Pierce and Carlos OFarrill each had a hit. Marathon was well represented on the all-conference teams announced before the championship game. Pierce and OFarrill were named to the first team; Almodovar, McKeon and Raymond Crespo made second team; Jesse DeLuca and Sean Roussin made third team; and Roussin was named to the all-academic conference team. Marathon (11-12) earned a No. 3 seed in the District 16-3Atournament scheduled to begin Tuesday.

Seven of the Patriots eight runs were unearned. The game ended up 8-2, but it should have been 2-1 us. We had another brutal defensive game, coach Bob Roney said.The Dolphins finished a respectable 18-9, but many of their losses came when subpar fielding led to unearned runs for their opponents. Tuesday was one of those games. We played that game like it was our second game of the year. We had no sense of urgency at all. You have to come to play at districts, Roney said. Were not a state title team, but I thought in the state tournament we could have won a few games.Standout pitcher Jordan Roney pitched a complete game, striking out eight Patriots and allowing five hits and one walk. The freshman finished the season with 18 wins, a 1.4 earned run average and roughly 150 strikeouts.But defensive miscues hurt the Dolphins right from the start, as the first two Florida Christian batters reached on errors in the bottom of the first inning. The Patriots scored four unearned runs by the end of the inning to take a 4-0 lead.The Dolphinslone runs came in the fourth inning, when Savannah Rodamer singled and senior Taylor Konrath launched a two-run home run in her final game as a Dolphin to cut the lead to 4-2.Florida Christian added two more runs in the bottom of the fourth to make it 6-2, and another two in the fifth to put the game out of reach. Rodamer led the Dolphins at the plate, finishing 3-for-3 with three singles. Konrath, Roney, Sacha Olivera and Ashlyn Katz each had a base hit. Konrath will be the only Dolphins player lost to graduation next season.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON SOFTBALLConchs finally winIt had been 28 days since the Key West High baseball team won a game, but the Conchs broke their eightgame losing streak Wednesday night with a 12-0 victory over Keys Gate Charter in Homestead. The last game of the regular season was stopped after five innings because of the 10-run mercy rule. Of course everyone is excited, said coach Miguel Menendez. Nice to get back on the right track and have some positive momentum heading into the district tournament. The Conchs (12-11) will play Gulliver prep in the District 16-4Atournament at 8 p.m. this coming Wednesday at Rex Weech Field, needing a victory to get into the state playoffs.Against Keys Gate Charter, Key West broke to a 4-0 lead in the first inning and was ahead, 10-0, after three.Andrew Freeman pitched the first three innings, Chris Garcia worked the fourth and Hunter Sellers worked the fifth. I was extremely happy with the pitching, Menendez said. They all threw very well and Freeman and Garcia flashed some very good stuff, which is encouraging.Garcia, who began the season as the teams ace, had pitched only eight innings prior to Wednesdays game because of arm issues. Darren Miller led the Conchs at the plate with a single, double and triple. Garcia, hitting in his 14th consecutive game, had a single and double.By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASEBALL

Cudjoe Key LivingTip of hat to fascinatorsSince the Middle Ages, hats have held a variety of purposes in culture. They have been worn for religious reasons, protection against the elements, safety, as fashion accessories and to denote social status.In Florida, the majority of hats we see are used for sun protection. They range from baseball hats and visors to dramatically large beach hats made for lounging poolside.Fishing hats, which include those dreadfully efficient flaps that can connect to cover your neck, ears and face, are also popular in the Keys. These fishing hats are like the fanny pack useful but not a fashion statement youd want to make in public once off your boat. The hats made by Key West artist Judi Bradford are in a class all their own. These one-of-a-kind creations range from $50 to $185 and are reminiscent of the fascinator-styles more popular in the United Kingdom and famously worn for the royal wedding a few years ago. In fashion, hats can inspire an entire outfit, influencing the color scheme worn and the way you wear your hair.These beautiful pieces created by Bradford are referred to as fascinators due to their charming size and intricate use of rich textiles, curious buttons, distinctive ribbons and luxurious feathers.The feathers she uses are predominantly from Key West roosters. They are gathered locally, gently washed, air dried, trimmed and curled. She sells her hats at parties, trunk-show events and sometimes right off the top of her head when shes out and about. You can view her creations on her website, www .judibradford.com or at her studio at the Studios of Key West, 600 White St. This summer, she will travel to New York for the prestigious and competitive American Craft Festival at Lincoln Center and to England to study with three British milliners: Bailey Tomlin, Judy Bentinck and Bobbi Heath. Their couture hats have been featured in Vogue magazine and are worn to the Europes most famous horse races. In the fall, Bradford says, shell create a new series of hats from all she learns while abroad. If youre looking for an opportunity to wear a beautiful hat like Bradfords, get your friends together for a viewing party of the Kentucky Derby on May 4.Enjoy the best two minutes in sports while wearing fabulous hats and sipping the infamous mint julep. For those in the Upper Keys, Ill host a Kentucky Derby party at the Green Turtle Inn in Islamorada starting at 4 p.m. Its open to the public and will include a discounted themed menu, specialty drinks and prizes for the best dressed and most fabulous hat.For more information, send me an e-mail, leah@ leahsfabulousfinds.com.

More of her fashion advice can be found on her blog, Leahs FabulousFinds.com.CONCH STYLEPhoto by SHEELMAN PHOTOGRAPHYKey West artist Judi Bradford shows her fascinators.Leah Maki ConchStyle Some meat cut s r e n amedWhats in a name? Plenty when it comes to pork chops, and its all about to change. On labels, different cuts of pork chops are named from bone-in to boneless loin chops, to center cut to thick and thin to loin and rib chops. Confusing, isnt it? The National Pork Board and the National Cattlemens Beef Association recently announced new names for more than 350 cuts of beef and pork.The move, which follows a collaborative two-year study on the issue, aims to reduce consumer confusion with labels that easily identify the cut of meat and what part of the animal it comes from.Take pork butt for example. The cut, which is actually from the shoulder, will be renamed Boston roast. Consumers will start seeing the changes on store shelves in the next couple of months. The new names will help change the way consumers and retailers talk about pork, National Pork Board President Conley Nelson says at www.pork.com But more important, the simpler names will help clear up confusion that consumers currently experience at the meat case, helping to move more pork in the long-term. The names are said to be more universal and easier for consumers to choose. And the pork industry is renaming many pork cuts with beefy names.Apork loin chop will now be labeled as pork porterhouse chop and pork rib chop center will become pork ribeye chop. Out is the top loin chop and in a New York chop.In the beef case, consumers will see flat iron steak a fabricated cut from the shoulder instead of top blade steak. And coulette replaces top sirloin beef, but ground beef will still be ground beef.The two industries are updating, along with the seal of approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the 40 year-old Uniform Retail Meat Identification Standards, which most retailers use.The goal is less confusion for consumersBy SUSAN SELASKYDetroit Free PressTHE DINNER TABLE

Saturday,April 20,2013 3B Keynoter KeysNet.com Heres looking at you, Key Largo. On Thursday, May 2 cinephiles from around the world will flock to the Upper Keys for the inaugural Humphrey Bogart Film Festival. Hosted by Stephen Humphrey Bogart, the son of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, the fourday festival will feature a cocktail party, 38 film screenings, workshops, a memorabilia exhibit, rides on the original African Queen and a formal ball. Film critic, Leonard Maltin, will appear as a special guest.The festival opens on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. with a cocktail reception and an outdoor screening of Key Largo at the bayfront Murray Nelson Cultural Center. Bogart and Maltin will be on hand for the opening remarks. Maltin said that he became involved with the festival because Bogart is his alltime favorite actor. In addition to putting Key Largo on the map as a tourist destination, the 1948 movie is the fourth and final film that Bogie and Bacall made together, showcasing their legendary onand offscreen chemistry. Key Largo has a strong storyline and a great cast, working under the direction of John Huston, said Maltin. It deals with such timeless subjects as power, ambition, and integrity. The festival theme is film noir, a genre in which Bogart excelled during Hollywoods classic noir period of the 40s and 50s. Screenings will include 10 Bogart films and 10 other iconic films within the genre. Additional venues include Tavernier Cinema 5, Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, Key Largo Bay KEY LARGO Humphrey Bogart in The African Queen,his only Oscar-winning role as steamboat captain Charlie Allnutt.His co-star was Katherine Hepburn.Curtain rises on Bogart Film FestivalOpening May 2 with Stephen BogartBy CLAUDIA MILLERLAttitudes Correspondent The lead role in The Maltese Falconwas originally offered to George Raft, who turned it down.

For more information, call 394-3736.Conch Republic Days celebrate the history of the Conch Republics founding, a protest movement which grew out of a 1982 incident when the U.S. Border Patrol set up roadblocks in Florida City. The feds stopped all vehicles exiting the Keys, triggering traffic tie-ups, hard feelings and outrage from Keys tourism boosters. Dennis Wardlow, then Key Wests mayor, led a contingent of civic and business leaders to the steps of the federal courthouse in downtown Miami. The Keys delegation symbolically seceded from the U.S., declared war, then sued for war reparations and passport recognition. All in jest, of course. And every year since then, the Keys has found an excuse to celebrate Conch independence, despite the fact that war reparations never came.Organizers also stage ceremonies to install a Conch Republic Cabinet, witness the signing of secession papers, and even the demolition of a mock bridge. The latter was dreamed up by Howard Kolbenheyer, owner of Snappers Restaurant, who began an annual symbolic Jewfish Bridge demolition in 1991.

Their album, Somewhere in Time,brims with love songs, some heart wrenching, others perky.

We have a great slate of movies, said Bogart. My father worked for Warner Brothers for a long time, so theyve given us access to a lot of films. On Friday night, fans can choose between two outdoor double features. Event coordinator Suzanne Holmquist said that the Bogart Family Estate pushed for the outdoor screenings in order to highlight the tropical beauty that makes Key Largo a unique destination. At 8:15 p.m. The Maltese Falcon, Bogarts original hardboiled detective Sam Spade, and Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Bogart as a downon-his luck prospector in Mexico, will be shown at Founders Park. Maltin will introduce the films. At 9:00 p.m. The African Queen, Bogarts only Oscar-winning role as steamboat captain Charlie Allnutt, and Casablanca, the actors first real romantic lead as Rick Blaine, will screen at the Murray Nelson Center. Bogart will provide the introduction. Sue Woltanski of Tavernier said that she plans on making the screenings a family affair. Im hoping to introduce my kids to these classic films, she said. Living in the Keys, I feel they should see African Queenand Key Largo.Black-andwhite films are so much better on the big screen. I dont think watching the videos at home will have quite the same impact.Saturday, May 4 is packed with special events in addition to movie screenings and two more outdoor double features. At 10 a.m. inside the Murray Nelson Center, critically-acclaimed documentary film director, Billy Corben, will discuss his cult classics like Cocaine Cowboys, as well his features for ESPN, The U and Broke.Billy Corben is a dynamic character, and hell share behind the scenes information and clips that havent been seen yet from his projects, Holmquist said. At 12:30 p.m. at the Holiday Inn, Bogart and Maltin will discuss Bogies life and career. They will also share the stories behind memorabilia items on exhibit such as letters, signed contracts, movie posters and awards. At the Holiday Inn docks, people will be able to book trips on the recently restored African Queen, the boat featured in the namesake movie. Stephen Bogart recently took his first voyage.It was fun to sit in the same spot as my father and Katharine Hepburn, he said. Its something that everyone can do that was really part of cinema history.At 6 p.m. the Casablanca-themed Bogart Ball at the Hilton Key Largo Resort will include a red carpet cocktail reception in a casino setting, a Moroccan-themed dinner and dancing. Maltin will give a presentation on the actors trademark personathe cynic with a noble side. Bogart played antiheroes so well-and that kind of character never goes out of style, Maltin said. In his best roles he projected a kind of honesty thats very appealing. The festival was made possible by a joint effort between the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce and the Bogart Family Estate, and according to Craig Cope, chamber president, they have already sold tickets in 27 different states and 6 foreign countries. Georgia Lagounaris from Australia has been a passionate Bogie fan for over 42 years, and she decided to make the long journey to Key Largo when she saw the festival details on Facebook. I knew this would be like a dream come true, she said. To be with other die-hard Bogart fans and Stephen Bogart was too good an opportunity to miss, and I understand that the Florida Keys are incredibly beautiful. Im looking forward to the Bogart Ball the most, but whenever I think about just being there at any of the events, my excitement level goes straight through the roof.Visit bogartfilmfestival .com for more information and to buy tickets.Bogart ball is May 4From Bogart,3B Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall on the set for the iconic film-noir Key Largo. for tickets to sample the food and wine.

Tradition calls for the clay being hand shaped rather than thrown and quick firing with a plunge into water, which makes the process very dicey and hard to control.But, out of that comes the chance color and glaze and other elements that make raku pottery works of art. Art lovers will have the chance to experience serendipity at Florida Keys Community Colleges Mud Pi Student Club event on Saturday, April 27. From 4-7 p.m. student artists will be serving up an Asian-inspired meal in handfired ceramic ware (plates and bowls) not all of them raku that are included in the price of dinner: $25 in advance or $30 at the door. The inspiration for this dinner-in-a-bowl fundraiser comes from FKCC instructor Jay Gogin, who heads the colleges ceramics department and is the advisor for the schools ceramics club, Mud Pi. And Gogin studied with Soldner at Scripps College in Claremont, Ca., which hosts the annual Scripps Ceramics Invitational exhibition each year. Soldner, who started out studying medicine before he found his true muse with the potters wheel and kiln designs, says this about Asian-inspired raku:In the spirit of raku, there is the necessity to embrace the element of surprise. There can be no fear of losing what was once planned and there must be an urge to grow along with the discovery of the unknown. . learn to accept another solution and, finally, prefer to gamble on your own intuition. Raku offers us deep understanding of those qualities in pottery which are of a more spiritual nature, of pots by men willing to create objects that have meaning as well as function. To see how form follows function, go to Fountain Square Plaza at FKCCs Stock Island Campus on April 27 and enjoy food served up in a ceramic piece you get to keep for the price of a meal.Tickets are available at www.keystix.comMud Pi ceramics event held at FKCC April 27 ART18th century raku bowl from Kyoto in the Freer Gallery of Art collection.Young musicians take the stageThe Murray Nelson Government and Cultural Center in Key Largo will host the Florida Keys Concert Bands final concert of the season starting at 4 p.m. Saturday, April 27.
