WWW.KEYSNET.COM SATURDAY,APRIL 27,2013 VOLUME 60,NO.34 25 CENTS Eye of the stormMonroe County will now pay hurricane shelter workers because not enough people are volunteering.Story, 3A Canes finishedThe baseball Hurricanes of Coral Shores High end their season at the hands of St.Brendan.Story, 1B Rate increase bypasses KeysAfter twice delaying a vote, the state Senate on Thursday approved a controversial bill that could mean significant Citizens Property Insurance Corp. premium hikes on new policies statewide.The good news for Keys residents is the bill passed 24-15, with a carve-out amendment brokered by state Rep. Holly Raschein (R-Key Largo) intact. That means avoiding windstorm insurance rate hikes of up to 137 percent in Monroe. The amendment language states that the exception is for counties where [Citizens] provides more than 75 percent of the personal lines residential policies providing wind coverage. As written, that applies only to Monroe County and not to any of Floridas 66 other counties.The average windstorm premium in the Keys is $2,900. Had the rate hike included Monroe County, that same average policy could cost a new customer $6,873.In addition to the premium relief, an amendment was added to the bill that exempts the Keys from a cap on insuring homes above a certain value. That amendment drops Citizenscoverage limits in phases to as low as $300,000 statewide, but a $1 million limit will remain in place in Monroe.Effective January 1, 2014, a personal lines residential structure that has a dwelling replacement cost of $1 million or more, or a single condominium unit that has a combined dwelling and contents replacement cost of $1 million or more, is not eligible for coverage by the corporation.The bill also says that homes insured by Citizens as of Dec. 31, 2013, may continue to be covered by the corporation until the end of the policy term.Lastly, language was added from Rascheins House Bill 819, which would add an additional member to the Florida Commission on Hurricane Loss Projection Methodology.The bill says the member would be a licensed professional structural engineer who is a full-time faculty member in the state university system and who hasBut new Citizens Property policies elsewhere in Florida will see hikesBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comSTATE LEGISLATURE THROW TO THIRDKeynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWIsland Christian School infielder Kirsten Tangen (left) stretches for a throw to third base in an attempt to catch a Westwood Christian runner in Thursdays state Region 4-2A playoff game.The Eagles,champions of District 16-2A, ended their season in a 17-3 loss.Story, 1B Legislators have left us high and dryOptimism that state legislators would OK a second straight $50 million state bond this year supporting Keys sewer construction was apparently all for naught.State Rep. Holly Raschein (R-Key Largo) broke the news Tuesday morning to a sizable Keys contingent that the state budget or 2013-14 will not include bonding or new debt. The group was in Tallahassee for the annual Florida Keys Day lobbying day.The state is above its 7 percent debt capacity. The 2013 budget does not include any debt or bonding at all. [Raschein] was limited in that respect, said Kate DeFoor, Racheins executive secretary. DeFoor said Gov. Rick Scott made the decision, in conjunction with House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz, not to issue bonds. She said they cited information from the 2012 Debt Affordability Report issued by the state Division of Bond Finance.No bonding means no second installment of the $200 million Mayfield grant authorized in 2009 to support Keys sewer projects to improve water quality. The first allocation was finalized in January 2012.That $50 million was split between Monroe County and Islamorada. Its the city of Marathon and Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District losing out on $20 million apiece this time around.According to an agreement worked out by local governments, the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority would have received $5 million, Key West $4 million and Key Colony Beach $1 million from this years allocation.Wastewater Treatment District Vice Chairman Andrew Tobin, an Upper Keys attorney, said the stateExpected $50M for sewers not in budgetBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comCENTRAL SEWERSWALL GETS A MAKEOVERKeynoter photo by LARRY KAHNMembers of the Monroe County Sheriffs Office,the Fraternal Order of Police and others repaint the wall separating U.S.1 from Home Depot in Marathon Thursday morning.Its part of Sheriff Rick Ramsays effort to clean up areas where theres a need.Home Depot provided the supplies. Shelter remains quarantinedThe canine population at the Marathon animal shelter is on the road to recovery after an outbreak of kennel cough forced a threeto six-week quarantine of the shelter.The same cant be said for former Director Katie Bentley, who said she remains at a loss for reasons why the board of Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys, which runs the shelter under a country contract, forced her to resign April 12. She said kennel cough is common at animal shelters.There wont be one shelter you contact that says, No, weve never had kennel cough.Its a very common thing, Bentley said.Founding board member and Marathon resident Cora Baggs is overseeing day-today operations at the shelter until a new director is chosen.Were still under quarantine, she said. Veterinarian Mike Dunn was here [Thursday] night and everyone is looking really good. There are some that didnt get it in the beginning and it kind of runs its course.Dunn and Geraldine Diethelm, chief of staff at the Marathon Veterinary Hospital, are ex-officio SHARK board members. Neither could be reached for comment. Baggs said there would be another four weeks of quarantine before we reopen, but that the shelter is still accepting cats and other animals that dont catch kennel cough.

LeBaron, 36, faces a possible death sentence if convicted.The video was shot by Monroe County Sheriffs Office Sgt. Ralph Williams, who at the time was working as a crime-scene technician. He spent the better part of Wednesday afternoons court session on the witness stand. The video is graphic and shows Gardners badly beaten face and his body lying underneath a table in the kitchen and dining area of the boat cabin. The photos illustrate extensive blood splatter throughout the cabin.Jurors first watched the video and then Chief Assistant State Attorney Manny Madruga had Williams come down from the stand and describe the scene in the photographs he took.Williams was later asked to open a series of sealed evidence bags containing items he catalogued from the crime scene. Among them were a tank top allegedly worn by LeBarons then-girlfriend Kristin Whitmore, the bloody shorts Gardner was wearing, at least one of his teeth that was knocked out during the attack, zip ties and a large, bloody flashlight.Police say Gardner had allowed Whitmore, 44, to stay on his boat and that she led LeBaron to the vessel intending to rob Gardner. Instead, LeBaron allegedly beat Gardner to death and stole his car. The couple was arrested in Midvale, Utah, 12 days after the killing based on an anonymous tip to police.Whitmore pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and is serving 18 years in prison in return for her testimony against LeBaron.

School Board member Ed Davidson said a temporary internal auditor may be able to get the Monroe County School District back hundreds of thousands of dollars from the construction costs paid to build Key Wests Horace OBryant Middle School.At the boards meeting Tuesday, Davidson recommended hiring former attorney and state-certified financial auditor Stuart Kessler for 18 months to investigate financial irregularities in change orders made during the building of the $38 million HOB, as well as unresolved findings by the state Auditor Generals Office that go back to the administration of disgraced former superintendent Randy Acevedo. Davidson said at the meeting at Coral Shores High School that the money the district would pay Kessler would pale in comparison to the amount the system could receive back from the companies involved in building the school.You have to spend some money to recover a great deal more, Davidson said.While fellow board members John Dick, Robin Smith-Martin and Ron Martin agreed there may be a need to hire an internal auditor, they said Superintendent Mark Porter should be the one to choose the person. But Davidson argued Kessler uncovered many financial problems while serving on the districts Audit and Finance Committee.The district recently declined to renew the contract of Finance Director Ken Gentile, who was chief internal auditor before Porter did away with that position.Operators of a Pompano Beach firm charged with buying and selling blackmarket sharks and angelfish from the Florida Keys pleaded guilty in a pretrial deal.Walter R. Bloecker, 59, and Lila M. Bloecker, 57, each pleaded guilty to a single count of conspiracy in a federal court hearing April 19.Counts of buying and selling 10 nurse-shark pups without a federal permit and taking seven oversized angelfish were dropped. U.S. District Court Judge James Lawrence King sentenced both to a years probation, including 90 days of home detention. They were fined $100. Acriminal case against the BloeckersBroward County business, Aquatic Trading Co., remains active, court records indicate. The Bloeckers were arrested in February after investigation by federal fisheries officers. The sharks and angelfish were illegally harvested by divers in the Florida Keys, says the original indictment.Aquatic Trading reportedly paid the collector who hasnt been named $1,085 for the 17 fish that were sold to a Michigan buyer for $3,700, says the indictment signed by Assistant U.S. State Attorney Thomas Watts-Fitzgerald. The sales reportedly occurred between June and early October 2012.In a separate criminal case charging the illegal harvest of live fish from the Keys for aquarium display, federal defendants Ammon Covino, Christopher Conk and the Idaho Aquarium are scheduled for a Sept. 23 trial in Key West. They are charged with conspiring with an unnamed collector to purchase four protected eagle rays and two lemon sharks for their private nonprofit aquarium.

He worked in the Keys at the time. White said he was given the name and slip number for Gardners boat and that when he stepped aboard to investigate, he noticed a smell coming from the cabin. He said he borrowed bolt cutters from a neighboring boat to cut open a combination lock on the cabin door. White said he entered the cabin and saw Gardner, who appeared deceased.I was rushed with a foul odor and a bunch of flies, he said. White said he immediately called local police.LeBarons three-person from the Regional Office of Conflict Counsel out of Miami did not cross-examine him.The final witness Wednesday was Key West resident Diane Castillo, a customer service representative for Porter Allen Co., an insurance company. She was questioned about a journal she purchased in 2007 and eventually tossed down a garbage chute at her apartment.It appears that either Whitmore or LeBaron somehow retrieved the journal, changed the dates inside and made several notes of their own. Prosecutor Val Winter went through each page with Castillo, asking her to identify her handwriting.Winter did not directly address how the journal ties into the crime, but noted several entries not written by Castillo that appear related. One was to buy zip ties, and another about posting an ad on craigslist, where Whitmore testified she met Gardner.Castillo had a simple response when asked what she now does with journals when finished with them: I shred them.Murder scene was bloodyFrom Trial,1A is putting that agency in a bad position. Weve got $85 million in debt that we incurred in good faith, in reliance of the state of Florida continuing to fund the district, which has no taxing authority and no sales tax revenue. They just sort of left us high and dry without fulfilling their promise. Its pretty disappointing, he said. Marathon City Manager Roger Hernstadt said the city expected to receive state funding when it moved forward with more than $100 million worth of wastewater and stormwater improvement projects. I wasnt here at the time, but in 2008 the city went to a Cabinet meeting and said, Were about to start and if we do will the money be there?They were assured at that meeting of the Mayfield money, so the city proceeded on good faith, he said. Hernstadt added that local governments still could receive money for sewers this year via the states general fund budget, but nowhere near the Mayfield money. Theyre looking at what they can do in terms of what cash they have on hand. Its going through the process and could be anywhere from nothing to $5 million, he said. Tobin is less optimistic. I heard it but I havent seen a check. I guess I should be glad that theyre at least thinking about us, but theyve really put us in a precarious position, he said.DeFoor said the budget is expected to be up on Tuesday in order to have the 72-hour window before they vote on it. That would mean a Friday vote, which is the last scheduled day of session.Officials say promise brokenFrom Sewers,1A TomWilliREALTOR305-395-9869tom@mykeysdreamhome.com 29967 Overseas Hwy.

The current Death Row inmates:Lloyd Allen, 62, sentenced to death on March 3, 1993. Allen was convicted in the Nov. 13, 1991, murder of Dortha Cribbs, who was found in her Summerland Key home with her throat slashed. Police say the motive was theft missing were her 1988 Ford Taurus, a $5,000 ring and $4,200 in cash. Allen was caught in California.

Overton was convicted in the Aug. 22, 1991, murders of Michael and Missy MacIvor of Tavernier and their unborn child. Overton, a service-station clerk who moonlighted as a burglar, was linked to the crimes after detectives obtained a DNAsample from his blood while he was in custody in November 1994 on a burglary count. He had long been considered the primary suspect in the killings.Michael Tanzi, 36, sentenced to death on April 11, 2003. Tanzi, a drifter from Massachusetts, was convicted of killing Miami Herald ad supervisor Janet Acosta on April 25, 2000. In his confession, Tanzi said he forced Acosta into her van during her lunch break outside the Herald building, drove her to the Keys and used her ATM card to withdraw money. He then strangled her and dumped her body on Blimp Road on Cudjoe Key. Tanzi, who was caught in Key West two days later, had also been accused of sexually assaulting Acosta but would not admit to that. Overall, there are 405 Florida Death Row inmates.

Efforts to reverse the boards earlier decision brought a large turnout of teachers to a special held at Marathon High School.The furlough days issued by this district have been a point of contention since the very beginning, said Holly Hummell-Gorman, president of the United Teachers of Monroe. She challenged the districts claims of financial urgency and said an honest accounting was never presented to us.She also pointed to Manatee County, which she said has the lowest fund balance of any school district in Florida, and noted the school board there made do with only two unpaid furlough days.What we are rejecting tonight is the notion that the MCSD needed seven furlough days in order to balance their budget for 201213 school year, HummellGorman said. Teacher Debbie Masters addressed the board, noting that seven furlough days have cost her $2,300 in lost wages each of the past two years, and that didnt include a 3 percent contribution that teachers now pay toward their health benefits. The trend is eroding salaries at a time when the cost of living is not going down. Superintendent Mark Porter, citing a special magistrates report, recommended the board keep the furlough days intact for the 2012-13 school year, which ends June 30. Board member Rob Smith-Martin made the motion to approve that recommendation, seconded by colleague John Dick.Board member Ed Davidson told the crowd of nearly 100 packed into the Marathon media center furlough days are a pay cut and should have been called that.But he pointed to the recently released critical state audit of district finances, including a $3 million shortfall to fully fund the districts health care and workers compensation funds. If we take those monies, we have less than $1 million left and those are figures cited by the state audit.Mondays hearing was the last step in an appeal process that began when the union filed a complaint with the state Public Employee Relations Commission, which decides labor disputes between governments and public-employee unions.Ahearing officer appointed by the state sided with the School District, as did the commission. UTM appealed to the First District Court of Appeal, where it also lost.The last step was Mondays hearing before the School Board, which could have reversed its earlier actions imposing the unpaid furlough days. We were told this was done out of financial urgency. However, to date, our district has never filed anything with the state declaring this financial urgency other than the district ... projecting they would fall below the required 3 percent [fund balance].

Key Largo Volunteer Fire-Rescue Department board members voted on last-ditch concessions Tuesday night aimed at saving the nonprofit company that has served the Upper Keys for the past 50 years. The move comes a day after the Key Largo FireRescue and Emergency Medical Services District board voted 3-2 to transfer leadership of the Fire-Rescue Department to the Key Largo Ambulance Corps essentially disbanding the fire department effective May 27. The vote was made the same day that mediation between the commissioners and the Fire-Rescue Department stalled due to impasse. The three commissioners voting for the leadership transition Marilyn Beyer, George Mirabella and Bob Thomas did so because they are fed up with Chief Sergio Garcia. Led most vocally by Thomas, they repeatedly complained for months that Garcia runs his department through intimidation and retribution and that he ignored recommendations made in two independent audits going back to 2009. Garcia was out of the country on a consultant trip to Mexico this week and could not be reached for comment.The departments sevenmember board agreed Tuesday to the following concessions:The board, not the rank and file members, should pick the chief.The fire-EMS district commission, which controls the departments budget, should be able to veto the decision by a super majority 4-1 vote.The fire departments board should include two non-firefighter members picked by the commission.The department board should work with the commission to establish a grievance board for disgruntled firefighters. The boards president, Frank Conklin, was expected to show the concessions to commission Chairwoman Jennifer Miller on Thursday, after The Reporter s deadline. Aspecial meeting could be called by early next week for commissioners to discuss the list. Thomas called the concessions a move in the right direction when contacted Wednesday. On the one hand, its too little, too late, Thomas said. On the other hand, I dont want to slam the door.But he also worried that Garcia would be the chief the board ends up nominating. And since Miller and Commissioner Tony Allen strongly disagree with their colleaguesdecision to cancel the Fire-Rescue Departments contract, the other three commissioners would not likely be able to veto the boards choice should it be Garcia.Mirabella was more blunt. He said the only acceptable solution is to get rid of Garcia and eventually replace him with a chief who is answerable to the commissioners.Its the same stuff theyve rehashed over and over, he said after the meeting. Theres a simple solution and theyre fighting it so hard.Tuesdays meeting was presided over by the firefightersattorneys, Russell Yagel and Andy Tobin. Yagel was hired to represent the FireRescue Department in mediations with the districts commissioners. Tobin has been the departments pro bono attorney for several years.While the Fire-Rescue Departments legal bills are paid out of its own money, Key Largo taxpayers are paying for all the extra legal work going into the canceling of the contract. An itemized bill obtained by The Reporter shows Vernis and Bowling, the law firm representing the fire/EMS district, charged more than $7,000 since February on just this one issue.This is already costing taxpayers a lot of money, they just dont know it yet. They havent seen the legal bills, Yagel said.Yagel usually charges $395 an hour for his legal services but has not yet billed the departments board for his time since signing on as counsel in February, according to Linda Newman, the departments station manager.Yagel told the men at the meeting that they had several options, including suing the district for breach of contract. But he warned that litigation is a costly and lengthy process that wouldnt likely end in the contract being restored no matter who won. The fruit of victory tastes like ashes in your mouth, he said. At the end of the day, its not good for anybody. The Fire-Rescue Department owns the land on which one of its fire stations sits, and Yagel said he doesnt think the district can make the department leave without paying for the property.

Its an important job, county Fire Chief Jim Callahan said Thursday. We cant wait until the last minute and then have people not show up. Volunteers may move away, get busy or might not feel like coming, Emergency Management Director Irene Toner said. We need to have staff thats 100 percent reliable. Earlier this week, Monroe County staff members received invitations to apply for posts as managers who administer four local shelters open during Category 1 or Category 2 hurricane threats. If there is not enough interest by Wednesday, applications will be accepted from the public. Managers will receive at least $24 an hour for a 12hour shift; county staff could receive more through overtime pay rates. County workers considered essential in storm threats deputies and firefighters, for example are not eligible to run a shelter. Last year, Emergency Management officials had to send essential workers who should have been doing other jobs to run shelters when not enough volunteers could be found, Callahan said. Volunteers are great but when they want to leave, they leave, County Mayor George Neugent said. The American Red Cross will not send its workers into the Keys when a hurricane evacuation has been declared, said Sam Tidwell, chief executive of the Red Cross chapter covering Miami and the Keys. If the Red Cross goes into a hurricane-evacuation area like the Keys, that sends the wrong message that its safe to be here, Tidwell said. But if you need an evacuation order and shelters, its not safe. The Red Cross will respond immediately poststorm if needed, he said. In hurricane threats below Category 3, Monroe County opens shelters at Key West High School on Flagler Avenue; Sugarloaf School at mile marker 19; Stanley Switlik Elementary at mile marker 48 in Marathon; and Coral Shores High School at marker 90 in Tavernier. During last years alert for Hurricane Isaac, about 300 people went to Keys shelters, mostly in Key West. Managers, two per shift, register people coming in, assign sleeping areas, ensure families are grouped together, and declare lights out at 10 p.m., Toner said. Its nothing particularly difficult, Toner said. About four to five hours of training are required.Shelters are intended to provide space for local residents who live in situations considered unsafe even in minimal hurricanes, like in mobile homes or aboard boats.If an approaching hurricane reaches Category 3, a mandatory evacuation to the mainland will be ordered, and no shelters will open. However, mandatory doesnt mean officials will come knocking on your door telling you to leave.County to pay since volunteer roster thinnedHURRICANE SEASONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comKeys ADs fight rules changesAmajor change in statewide rules on highschool athletics making its way through the Florida Legislature could leave Florida Keys teams on the sidelines forever, say local coaches and athletic directors.When it comes to athletes eligibility, were talking chaos total chaos, said Marathon High School Athletic Director Teresa Konrath, who coaches two Dolphin teams.The Florida Legislature should be banned from making any law on education, said Tony Hammon, superintendent and coach at Island Christian School in Islamorada. They never make it better, only worse.The Florida House already has passed a bill, HB 1279, that would loosen rules on student-athletes who transfer, and effectively gut many regulations adopted by the Florida High School Athletics Association, which now oversees most prep sports.Acompanion Florida Senate Bill, SB 1164, passed through a major committee Wednesday and seems on track for adoption. Supporters say the proposed law would curtail excesses of the FHSAAand not hamper student athletes who have good cause to change schools. Those are not issues that merit abandoning the FHSAA, said local coaches. Under the Senate bill, the century-old FHSAAwould be dissolved by 2017. Obviously there would be an inherent bias for private schools, Coral Shores High School Athletic Director Rich Russell said.I think all Monroe County public schools would be negatively impacted in that the majority of our athletic contests are against private schools, Russell said. Those private schools would have an even greater opportunity than they do now to recruit and give scholarships to scholarship top athletes.Eligibility standards would be decided by each county school board or private-school administrators, Konrath said. That could lead to frequent transfers by athletes, creating free agency at its highest level.... Astudent having issues with coaches and programs can move at will.Basically our kids would get the bad end of the stick, she said. Well never have a chance to be competitive. Rural communities like us will never have a run at a state title. Supporters are trying to say this allows homeschooled or virtual-school students to play sports but that already happens, Konrath said. Ive got those kids on my teams now.Konrath traveled with her daughter Taylor, a nationally recognized student-athlete, to Tallahassee this week to lobby against the change. The bills supporters seem to have the upper hand, she said.The only way to prevent the change appears to be a veto by Gov. Rick Scott, Konrath said.Bills would loosen rules for athletesPREP SPORTSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comFirefighters offer concessions1 commissioner says its too little,too lateKEY LARGOBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.com

It has proven to be a failure.Not too long ago, residents who had voted to incorporate themselves into a city were literally begging their elected officials to have their newly formed city governments dissolved. These unfortunate citizens found out that their newly elected politicians were dishonest and unresponsive to the people, as they threw taxpayer money around, giving themselves and their friends enormous salaries, for doing virtually nothing.These newly elected politicians were found to be incompetent, filled with many dictatorial points of view they wanted to impose upon their former neighbors. It was and still is a nightmare for many of these people. One of these new city governments is referred to as the village of idiots. Jessie Davis Key LargoInvest in childrenWhen families have the community support they need to provide nurturing experiences for children, those children invariably become productive adults and absolutely capable of contributing to a thriving economy. We know that from our own Publix experience with thousands of associates, and we know it in so many other ways. Clearly, those children in families lacking support are at much greater risk for child abuse and neglect, educational challenges and all sorts of other poor outcomes. When we invest in communities to create environments where all children can thrive, everyone benefits. At Publix we offer many programs to support families for example, the Publix Baby Club, Reading Pals and investments in priorities established by community-based United Way leaders. As we see it, family-friendly policies and access to quality early child development are not only good for families, but also good for business. April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and as a long-term sponsor of Childrens Week, Publix is pleased to participate in the Pinwheels for Prevention launch event at the Florida governors mansion, hosted by First Lady Ann Scott.We take our responsibility seriously to inform the community and our policymakers of the issues facing our children and families and provide proven solutions to address those crucial concerns.I encourage Florida leaders to support increased funding for programs like Healthy Families Florida, an evidencebased, voluntary home visiting program proven to prevent child abuse and neglect in 98 percent of the high-risk families served. That investment pays dividends for todays children and our communities, state and country for generations to come.We all share the responsibility to give children healthy and nurturing experiences to help them achieve their fullest potential. The time to do that is now.

The forced resignation of Director Katie Bentley was made by a board that I would guess has few members who have participated in the actual operation of the shelter.On multiple occasions, I have taken my grandchildren to the shelter (one of their favorite activities because of the positive experience). Katie (and all the volunteers) has always made them feel welcome and happy for them to provide attention and affection to the animals. The operation has always appeared to be operating at a professional level and constantly being cleaned by volunteers (none of whom are board members). I dropped in at all times and never observed a problem at the facility.Board members who talk the talk and provide financial support are valuable assets, but just as important to such an organization are board members who get dirty by walking the walk with the animals. If they think they can do a better job, then do so. Unless there are other extenuating circumstances, undisclosed, it would appear Katie was forced out prematurely. She deserves better and should get it. Mary Guerin MarathonReverse shelter decisionI am still in shock since learning that the board of directors of Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys demanded the resignation of the shelter director, Katie Bentley. This apparently was decided after two relatively new employees reported that Katie was mistreating the animals. How the board would make such a decision is beyond me. Anyone who knows Katie or has had dealings with the shelter would know that such allegations are unfounded. I know Katie well and worked shortly at the shelter, and have been impressed by the love and compassion she shows toward the animals. She knows each and every animal by name, the circumstances by which they were brought to the shelter, and their temperament. She spends the time with frightened, abused dogs until she can encourage them to trust her, and in turn other humans, so that she can find them loving homes.I sincerely hope this matter can be rectified and Katie will be put back in charge before the animals pay the price.Ellen Hill MarathonReplace shelter boardI want to put in my strong support for Katie Bentley, a diligent, committed, hard-working, animal-loving, competent animal shelter director. For many, many years, Ive volunteered in various animal shelters, including at Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys, and directors dont come any more compassionate and committed than Katie. Unfortunately, parvo is something that does appear in shelters from time to time, but Ive yet to learn of any shelter board dismissing its director for that. Putting blame on Katie is inappropriate and absurd. This whole matter needs to be examined legally and professionally and the board needs to be replaced.The biggest losers are the animals in the Marathon animal shelter, as finding another director with the qualities and skills of Katie will never happen. The animals will continue to suffer greatly without Katies wise, tender and loving care.Jan Kase Big Pine KeyBring back BentleyI have been a resident of the Marathon area for six years. During this time, I have been a volunteer for the Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys (the Marathon animal shelter) for approximately two years. I also had a short employment with the shelter in the slow season. I had the opportunity to work with former Director Katie Bentley during this time. She is a great person to work for and with, as she really cares for the animals. I feel that Katie made the shelter a good safe place for the animals and that they are truly in good hands, as she not only administered whatever they need medically but also offered love and attention to each and every one of them continuously. She offered so much to the animals and the shelter that I have thought many times in my mind how hard she worked and how much she has devoted to the animals and also the animals in the community that are not in the shelter or are lost or hurt.I recently fostered a dog named Cotton. Cotton was brought to many adoption events and then brought to my home for two months as a foster. Cotton is an 8-year-old dog and some may call him hard to place due to his age. Even though I was willing to help out with him, Katie continually worked to get a good home for him, and she did.Cotton was also heartworm positive and Katie had him treated at the vets office for three weeks. Then he was released to my care for fostering and Katie made sure that I had everything I needed to care for him. I write this because I believe in the job that Katie did and what she stands for. I was disappointed to hear that there was an issue due to the care the animals were receiving from Katie. I dont believe it for a minute. To the board: Please dont make the mistake of replacing her with someone else, as you never know what this great safe place the animals reside at may turn into. Bonnie Clydesdale MarathonWith Keys economy improving, battle lines are forming over the 2013-14 schools budgetThe media center at Marathon High School was packed Monday evening as members of the United Teachers of Monroe met with the School Board for one last appeal to reverse unpaid furlough days.Starting two years ago, the board adopted spending plans that included seven days of scheduled work with no pay. Its called furlough, which may be a misnomer.I dont think the public understands, said Coral Shores High chemistry teacher Alesha Rehmann. Teachers are working those seven days; its not a day off. We are working just as many days as ever, and getting paid for seven days less. At Mondays hearing, UTM President Holly Hummell-Gorman asked the board to give back two of those seven furlough days this year, since the district now reports its fund balance well above the 5 percent threshold set as the goal two years ago.Mondays 5-0 vote to keep the seven unpaid days brought boos and catcalls as scores of teachers filed out of the school media center. Before heading home, however, some teachers stuck around and talked about what they heard during the meeting, and what they didnt hear.There was no discussion about the budget for the 2013-14 school year. And teachers said they no longer trust board members who last year vowed to eliminate furloughs as a way to balance the budget.Why the skepticism? Well, teachers learned the district calendar for 2013-14 has already been set and furlough days are already in the calendar, according to one veteran teacher, who added I dont take great comfort in that.Board Vice Chairman Ron Martin was not taking great comfort in anything about Mondays hearing, which came after the teachers union lost three appeals with magistrates and the state Public Employee Relations Commission, which decides labor disputes between governments and public-employee unions.With the board chairman out of town, among the five board members, Martin has been the most consistent in pushing to eliminate unpaid furlough days, starting as far back as June 2012 before this years schools budget was finalized.The union argued Monday, as it has before, that the districts economic crisis of three and four years ago is over, thus furlough days should disappear. With state economists confirming Floridas economic recovery and with real estate values once again rising, the revenue picture has markedly improved. And the Legislature appears ready to increase funding per pupil for kindergarten through grade 12 for 2013-14 the first time in four years. Teachers who attended Mondays hearing now wonder when the School Board gets this message: Crying financial crisis no longer washes. Stanley Switlik Elementary School teacher Mary Sibley, first to address the board Monday, was also one of the last to speak out after the vote ended. Remember November, she shouted, loud enough for the departing board members to hear, as a cheer went up from teachers filling the back of the room. With the budget cycle about to begin for 2013-14, this wont be the last time the board hears about furlough days. U.S.Coast Guard members from Station Marathon and Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 13-02 in Marathon volunteer to clean up the animal shelter on April 18.The shelters board told the director to resign or be fired;she resigned.LETTERS TO THE EDITORShelter was spotlessIt is simply astonishing, the outcome of the Marathon animal shelters previous executive director, Katie Bentley, whom the shelter board forced to resign. The accusations brought forth are an outrage. As a former employee I can speak on the cleanliness and care the shelter received under Miss Bentleys care. Each and every individual animal at Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys received superb and timely care and the action by Miss Bentley were carried out with nothing less than pure love. The very first things that were required in the day-to-day operations were to administer medications and clean the place from top to bottom. I myself carried out these duties diligently under the supervision of Miss Bentley.The kennels for the dogs were sanitized daily; the outside yards were also sanitized on a regular basis. Indoor cat areas were cleaned thoroughly, from blankets to litter pans to food and water. Nothing ever went without being changed out daily.Under the direction of Miss Bentley, I cut the wire on the outside cat highway so it could be cleaned properly after a part-time volunteer fully enclosed it. That just goes to show her ability to pay attention to detail. This highway is about 9 feet overhead.The only thing Miss Bentley starved the animals of was hatred, not kibble. The animals were fed accordingly, from age and size. We need everyone to open their eyes on this one and realize that Katie Bentley was clearly not the problem. She was an excellent addition. She was the only one capable of drawing blood, doing testing and euthanasia when necessary. So why would the board remove such a well-rounded and diverse asset from its facility? Adam M.

Key Largo 451-4788 | Key West 294-4788 | Big Pine 872-4788102481 Overseas Hwy., Key Largo, FL 33037 WWW.TMIGFLA.COM BusinessKnow your etiquette for teleconferencesIn our increasingly connected world, meetings are more likely to take place over the phone. And while it may be cheaper and more convenient to hold telephone conferences, there are even greater challenges in how to run and to participate in those types of meetings. Some things remain the same the need for an agenda sent out in advance, clearly stated objectives, specific start and end times, meeting recap and assignments (if appropriate). But because there may be many more people on the call than could fit comfortably in a meeting space, and because the meeting leader cant see participants, its also easier to have a conference call spin out of control. Here are some tips to help keep that from happening, and keep everyone engaged. Call in early. If your teleconference includes a Web presentation, you will not only have to dial into the call itself, but also input a bunch of numbers to gain access to the webinar. There is nothing worse than making an error and having to start all over again. Its aggravating and will make you anxious.Disable call waiting. Most phone systems allow you to send your incoming call directly to voice mail if you hit *70. If you forget to do so and answer the incoming call, you could disable the bridgeline connection for everyone on the call.Introduce yourself as soon as there is space to do so when the call is live. Say hello and give your name.If youre late, be silent until you come up to speed. If your arrival on the call isnt acknowledged by the meeting leader, wait until there is a break in the flow, then introduce yourself. And dont forget to apologize for being late, although a long and drawn-out explanation is not necessary. Dont ask for a recap of everything thats gone on ahead of your arrival. Thats just rude. Catch up later on your own time.Mute your phone if you are in a noisy area. While most webinar providers allow moderators to mute all participants, you may be on a call that allows for (or encourages) your comments.If so, remember that background noises ringing phones, loudspeaker announcements, barking dogs, screaming kids, TVprograms, etc. are always louder on conference calls. Most phones have a mute button; use it until you want to speak. If yours doesnt have a mute function, press *6 to mute and *6 to unmute.No speaker phones. These are annoying enough when there are just two people on a call, but when you have a dozen or more, its distracting and disruptive.Always ask for permission to speak.If the point of the meeting is to give and get feedback, instead of just presenting information and you want to say something, start by identifying yourself to the moderator. Say something like, John, this is Mary. Wait to be acknowledged, and then speak.Always go through the moderator. Maybe someone has just said something youd like to address. Use the same process as above.Dont comment directly to the previous speaker; let the moderator be the traffic cop. You can say something like, John, this is Mary. Could I get some clarification around that last point? This is especially important if there are more than a handful of people on the call. And always remember, you can do your part to keep the meeting on track.Jackie Harder owns Key Dynamics Coaching and Consulting Inc. of Key Largo.

we tell them to bring a change of clothes if they have an animal at home, she said.Baggs added that running the shelter has been a team effort since Bentleys resignation. All the board members have been hands on to work every area that needs dealing with. Weve got Dr. Dunn and Dr. Jerry over almost every day, she said. Bentley said thats in stark contrast to her time running the shelter. She said it was her that filed paperwork to form a nonprofit and secure permitting and insurance required by Monroe County, which owns the shelter. For them now to step up, its another thing that is disheartening to me, Bentley said. We were always shortstaffed and we did the best we could ... but to see now their participation and work theyre putting in, its kind of upsetting to me. Bentley is adamant that a bad impression left by some volunteers and a former employee not kennel cough led to her resignation (if she didnt resign, she would have been fired). She said board President Sheila Cook called her about a month ago to discuss changes Cook wanted made.The first was to stop accepting dogs on death row from another shelter, which Bentley said she did on two occasions from Miami rescue group Dogs On The Move. The second was a board desire for a positive image of the shelter.Bentley said its difficult to always be positive, especially when dealing with animal calls involving violence against animals. If someone is beating their dog and youre on that call, you have to be stern with them, she said. Just 10 months ago, Bentley said she heard positive feedback when [the board] gave me a substantial raise. One vet from [Keys Animal Hospital and Marathon Veterinary Hospital] was coming in to do walk-throughs with the animals and there were no concerns or comments on the health of the animals or the cleanliness, she said. Bentley has received lots of public support in the wake of her resignation. Many have called for her to be rehired, and one person has created a plea to do so on Internet petition site www.Change.org Friday, it had 116 signatures.But Bentley said shes had no contact with board members since April 12. Cook was unavailable for comment Thursday and Friday.Ive tried and I cant get any responses. Last week I had high hopes theyd reconsider [her job], but obviously thats not going to happen, she said. Bentley said she has no immediate plans to leave the Keys and hopes to work in the animal rescue field in the future. SHARK board member Mary Stella is handling the search for a new director.Were still finalizing a [job] description, she said. Im still researching some national sites, as well as local.Stella said preference would not be given to local applicants should there be any. The most important thing is their experience with animals. In our consideration, we havent had a preference if theyre local or from out of the area, she said. Monroe County Administrator Roman Gastesi said the county has no qualms with its board changing management. We have not heard any complaints as far as the operation of the shelter. They have a board and we believe in the board and their mission and theres no indication they wont continue to do the great job they do, he said. SHARK runs the Marathon animal shelter and is responsible for animal control from mile marker 16 to mile marker 70 under a $232,556 annual contract that runs until June 30, 2015.

With the game tied 3-3, Raquel Schoneck led off the top of the seventh inning with a triple and scored when her twin, Lauren, hit a sacrifice fly. Doral the District 154Achampion tried to rally in its half of the inning, but Key West pitcher Desirae Laguna struck out the final batter with the tying run on third base. Laguna went all the way for the Conchs, allowing four hits and striking out four. She came back from a rocky first inning when she was called for numerous illegal pitches as Doral tied the game at 2-2.The Schonecks each had two hits, as did Brooke Wood. Senior Devin Osterhoudt, who is batting .414, continued her streak of having not struck out this season.The Conchs will move on to the regional finals for the first time under coach Steve Wells, who is in his fifth and last season. The 2005 team, coached by Gloria James, was the last to reach the elite eight in the state tourney. Key Wests reward is another game with Gulliver Prep on Tuesday night in Miami. The Conchs have lost three times to the Raiders this season, most recently in the District 16-4Atournament title game.Next up is Gulliver Prep for regional championshipBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST SOFTBALL Lady Eagles go out with smilesThe sunset of their district championship was in sight but the softball Lady Eagles of Island Christian School never stopped smiling. As Westwood Christian steadily built an insurmountable lead in Thursdays home Region 4-2Aplayoff game, the Eagles broke a team huddle by a shout of Fun!Rather than sobbing when the game ended in a 17-3 loss, the team left the Founders Park field applauding the parents, teachers and schoolmates who came to lend support. We had great season, head coach Kaitlynn Loy told her squad, possibly the youngest varsity softball district winner in Florida. This team did more than anyone thought it could. The Lady Eagles (7-11) got their biggest hit of the game in the first inning. Junior infielder Jasmine Theodosiou tagged a triple that scored leadoff Kirsten Tangen, who reached when hit by a pitch. But by the time ICS went to the plate in the bottom of the second, the Lady Warriors had a home run, a double and a 9-1 lead. Betsy Estevez, who stole second after a walk, came around to score for ICS on a two-base error in the second. Gina Betancourt scored in the third after stealing two bases. Both are middleschoolers. Junior pitcher Amanda Ihrig played well defensively on the mound but Westwoods capable hitters put the ball in play. Island Christian could not afford its half-dozen fielding errors.Virtually the entire Eagle lineup, which improved steadily through the season, is eligible to return next spring.As for baseball, Island Christians boys team (6-13) ended its season in a 4-2 loss Tuesday to Redland Christian Academy at the District 16-2ATournament in Homestead.

St. Brendan scored eight runs in the first inning and went on to a 13-1 victory over the Hurricanes in a District 16-4Atournament semifinal game Wednesday afternoon before a handful of fans at Rex Weech Field in Key West. The state 10-run mercy rule ended the game after Coral Shores batted in the top of the fifth inning. The Hurricanes the tournaments fourth seed behind St. Brendan, Key West and Gulliver Prep finished the season at 11-14. St. Brendans Sabres had seven hits and seven stolen bases in the first off sophomore starter Will Goodwin.

And as he watched, as the victory shouts from Gulliver players jarringly echoed, his thoughts flowed ... that [lone senior] Chris Garcia didnt deserve this ... that we werent going to give [retiring] assistant coach Al Difabo a district title to go out on ... and that there would be no more practice.The game had been a shock to Menendez and a large crowd of red-clad fans at an electrified Rex Weech Field.Atwo-run triple by Steven Wells in the bottom of the fourth had given Key West a 4-0 lead and the Conchs seemed on the verge of qualifying for the state playoffs. I thought that was going to be the dagger that put them away, Menendez said. But in the top of the fifth, with pitcher Darren Miller working on a one-hit shutout, everything unraveled.It was 4-1 after a walk and two singles. Then it was 4-2 after Garcia, at shortstop, made a throwing error. In their dugout, the Raiders were frenetic, They smelled the blood in the water and didnt let up, Menendez said.After Miller walked the next batter to load the bases, Menendez replaced him with Garcia. His first pitch was to Joseph Dunand, who hit a high-bouncing double down the left-field line. Two runs scored and it was 4-4. Awild pitch let in the go-ahead run and the innings sixth run came in on a ground-out as a ballpark went silent.When you play a team likeGulliver comes back for victoryBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASEBALLDolphins finish 11-13The Marathon High School baseball season came to a close Tuesday with an opening-round District 16-3Atournament loss to Westminster Christian School, 7-2, in Miami. The Dolphins entered the tournament as the No. 3 seed, while the perennial power Warriors were the No. 2 seed. The Dolphins finished the season with an 11-13 record.On Thursday, Westminster lost a tight matchup to No. 1 seed Florida Christian School, 2-1. It was the Patriots second consecutive tournament title.The Warriors and Patriots are difficult opponents in a loaded baseball district, but the Dolphins had a successful 2013 South Florida Baseball Conference season, which is separate from the district. For the second straight year, the teams only two as a member, Marathon reached the six-team conferences title game. They fell 9-3 to Palmer Trinity School, which is another of the teams District 16 rivals. The conference is made up of similarly sized schools that play each other twice during the course of the season. Its outside of normal district play for the Dolphins.No. 1 starter Kyle Pierce and sophomore standout Carlos OFarrill were named to the all-conference first team, while Ian Almodovar, Kevin McKeon and Raymond Crespo made second team. Jesse DeLuca and Sean Roussin made third team, and Roussin was named to the allacademic conference team.The Dolphins are set to graduate four seniors: Roussin, Almodovar, starting pitcher Todd Picariello and Jason Cadwell.Patriots win District 16-3A tournamentBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON BASEBALLSee Conchs,2B

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4B Saturday,April 27,2013 Get ready Key West, Countrys cominto town. The annual pilgrimage of Nashvilles finest songwriters to the Southernmost City begins on Wednesday, May 1 for the 2013 SmokinTuna 18th Annual Key West Songwriters Festival presented by BMI. The largest of its kind in the world, the festival draws more than 100 top songwriters and up to 10,000 audience members each year. Five days and nights will be filled with more than 40 free shows, staged at an array of the islands most popular watering holes, resorts and hot spots where the artists will share the stories behind their wellknown songs.Sara Haze, whose song Moonshine was recently featured on the Safe Haven soundtrack, was a newbie at the festival last year and said that theres a buzz about the event in the Music City. I feel like all of Nashville takes off that week to go to Key West, she said. Everyone is rocking flip flops and drinking pia coladas at 2 p.m. Its definitely a more casual atmosphere, and its a great bonding experience for the songwriters. Were always sitting in rooms and writing with each other, but here were out on a beach or snorkeling.The festival had a modest debut in 1995, but when Broadcast Music Inc. (BMI) stepped in as a partner and sponsor the following year, the event began to blossom.BMI helped bring a lot more writers down every year, said Charlie Bauer, who is the festival founder and director as well as the managing partner of SmokinTuna Saloon. They have been instrumental in making the event grow.He added that in addition to the artists, more industry people are attending the festival.The past few years its become almost like a South by Southwest. Key industry people are coming down record labels and publishers.The festival gained even more notoriety in 2003 when producer Greg Travis featured the weekend on his television show Country Music Across America, which aired on Great American Country (GAC). Theyve filmed at the festival each year, and in 2009, Storme Warren, the host of GACs Headline Country, took over coverage of the event.Some of the performers have been coming to Key West over 16 years in a row and have developed their own fan base at the festival. The fan base builds every year because they get to know these writers on a more intimate level, Bauer said.

Now playing nationwide. Lets start with the title its confusing and ambiguous and most viewers will wonder what it means. Does it have something to do with the auto repair shop in the woods? Is it about the two tense, disturbing scenes that take place among the pine trees? No, the title comes from a rough translation of the native-American word Schenectady, which is the city in New York where the film takes place. Now that weve cleared that up, we can talk about the film itself. The Place Beyond the Pines is a tense, somber exercise in keeping an audience on edge. Director and co-writer Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine) uses brooding music and claustrophobic camera work to slowly and relentlessly build the tension almost to the breaking point. Viewers will spend most of the 140-minute film worrying about who is going to live and whos going to die. Its one of those movies whereDirector knows how to keep the audience on edgeRyan Gosling gives an electric performance that oozes quiet malevolence.THEATER Photo by LARRY BENVENUT I Rita Irwin plays the role of Ethel and Cheri Edwards the role of her daughter,Charlotte,in Moon Over Buffalo, which opens May 2 at Marathon Community Theatre.Moon Over Buffalo coming to MarathonMoon Over Buffalo, by prolific playwright Ken Ludwig, opens May 2 at Marathon Community Theatre. Often described as a madcap comedy, the story is set in Buffalo, N.Y., 1953, with a down-on-its heels repertory company of actors. Ludwig, winner of the Edgar Award and nominated three times for Tony Awards, creates a story of mistaken identities, misunderstandings and humorous set pieces. Rumor sweeping the company has world famous director Frank Capra coming to see the troupe perform, perforce to earn starring roles in a Capra remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. The Marathon Theatres cast includes stage veterans along with some ingnues which almost parallels Ludwigs story in Moon Over Buffalo.This madcap comedy (is) a must see for theatre lovers, acting wannabes, or anyone in need of a big belly laugh, said Bonnie Greenberg, MCTs general manager.MCTs John Schaefer plays leading man George Hay, a waning actor suspected of having an affair withMadcap comedy called loads of funto seeLAttitudes StaffCraig Wanous KeysFilm See Film,5BSee Theater,5B

Vanessa made her debut with Marathons troupe earlier this season in the comic hit Women Wearing the Same Dress. Other alums from that play now performing in Moon include Cheri Edwards (as Georges wife Charlotte, who considers leaving him for their long time attorney), and, James Chaplin as Charlottes lawyer/lover, Richard. Sarah Brignac plays the Hays daughter, Rosalind, who quit show business because it is too crazy like living in an asylum. Shes come to Buffalo to introduce her parents to her new fianc, Howard, a ditzy TVweatherman played by MCTs Devin Clarke. Complicating the chaos on stage is Marty Dillis as Paul, Rosalinds former fianc. Hes the company manager, and, still has the hots for her. Rounding out the cast is veteran actress Rita Irwin as Charlottes mother, Ethel, a bit hard of hearing but who handles the acting companys costumes. The cast is hitting comic heights with this hilarious show, Greenberg said. Its full of slapstick and loads of fun for everyone on stage and in the audience.When the Boston Herald reviewed Moon Over Buffalo, this is what the critic had to say: Somewhere up above, George S. Kaufman, Abe Burrows, Moss Hart and all those clever fellows who wrote the comedies of yesteryear are rolling with laughter, echoing the audience last night at Moon Over Buffalo. The play is nothing less than a love letter to live theater.Moon Over Buffalo, directed by Michael Edwards, is produced by Tom ONeil. Dale Coburn III is assistant director. The show is produced with permission by Samuel French, Inc. and supported in part by The Monroe County Tourist Development Council.Performances are scheduled May 2, 3, 4, 10, 12, 16, 17 and 18 all shows at 8 p.m., with a 3 p.m. matinee performance set for Sunday, May 12. A locals discount is offered for the show on Friday, May 3. The MCTGallery exhibit, open prior to curtain call, features works by Islamorada artist Tim Borski. Tickets cost $18. For tickets, call 743-0994. For more information, visit www.marathon theater.org .the audience has a feeling right from the start that something awful is going to happen. Then they spend the rest of the movie dreading the moment when it does. The story follows two men, both fathers of infant boys, as they deal with new fatherhood and all the emotions that go with that responsibility. Luke Glanton, played by Ryan Gosling, is a hot-headed motorcycle daredevil who turns to a life of crime in an attempt to care for the yearold son he only recently discovered hed fathered. The childs mother, Romina, portrayed with melancholy by Eva Mendes, lives with another man who has stepped in to take Lukes place as the father.Bradley Cooper is Avery Cross, a young cop with a law degree, whose father wants him to follow in his footsteps and become a lawyer. Avery has a son the same age as Lukes and a wife who would also like him to quit the police force. On the force for six months, he loves being a cop and still has the idealism of a rookie.After struggling to save any money at a regular job, Luke partners with a shady auto-shop owner to earn some quick cash by robbing banks. Avery happens to be in the right place at the right time after one of Lukes robberies and the paths of the two men collide. That collision drives the plot and has far-reaching effects on both men, and on everyone around them, for years to come.Gosling is outstanding as Luke. He gives his character a calm demeanor but with a palpable sense of rage just beneath the placid exterior. Luke conceals any emotion he might be feeling and viewers may find it hard to empathize with him, especially after that rage erupts. With a face and body blanketed with tattoos and an ever-present cigarette dangling from his lips, Gosling gives an electric performance that oozes quiet malevolence. Even when hes holding his young son, anger and violence never seem too far from the surface.Cooper is also terrific as Avery, the hero-cop who has trouble dealing with the emotions of that fateful day. As the film progresses, so does Averys career and he is soon campaigning to be the states attorney general. But that violent confrontation affected him deeply and he carries a photo of Luke and his infant son in his wallet for years afterward. The supporting cast gives excellent performances, with Ray Liotta and Ben Mendelson as standouts. Liotta is superb as a creepy, menacing rogue cop, a role he seems to have invented. And Mendelson is perfect as the auto-shop owner who takes Luke in and at first seems like a good guy. Newcomers Dane DeHaan and Emory Cohen play the two grownup sons of Luke and Avery, Jason and AJ respectively, and both portray the teenagers with just the right amount of bravado and uncertainty.The Place Beyond the Pines is edgy and nervewracking. Its not a film for those who like an easy-going story with likeable characters and a Hollywood ending. But, like that strenuous session at the gym, when the workout is over, youll definitely be pumped up and wide awake.

Time magazineWhen Ira Levin wrote Deathtrap in 1978, he could hardly have predicted its success on Broadway, followed by a 1982 Sidney Lumet film with Michael Caine and Christopher Reeve.And, thats not counting the scores of regional theater companies that have given Deathtrap life long beyond its record run on the Great White Way. The Waterfront Theatre stages its version of this clever comedy thriller starting with preview performances April 30 and May 1.Cue magazine, reviewing the original play, wrote: Two-thirds a thriller and one-third a devilishly clever comedy. Suspend your disbelief and be delighted. Scream a little. Its good for you.Deathtrap is the premiere event for the Waterfronts Key West Mystery Fest, which opens May 2 with a gala afterparty. The play runs through May 18.The story follows Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, struggling to overcome a dry spell. Astring of failures and a shortage of funds have not helped matters. Then, a possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from a seminar student a thriller which Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway hit. With his wife Myras help, Sidney devises a plan to offer collaboration to the student, an idea which the younger man quickly accepts. Throw in an eccentric psychic and stuffy Brahmin lawyer, and the pace begins to move quickly with an abundance of shocking surprises, thrills and laughter.Heres director Bob Bowersox: Deathtrapis probably the finest example of the two-act thriller youll ever see. It has more twists, turns, and sudden shocks than any play I know, and I guarantee you wont see them coming. That, and the fact thats its the perfect blend of suspense, thrills, and humor, make this play a terrific evening of theater. Deathtrap stars David Black as Sidney and Mark Watson as Clifford, the young playwright. Mary Falconer plays Myra, Sidneys wife, Chris Stone plays Helga Ten Dorp, the Dutch psychic, and Geno Drum plays the stuffy lawyer Porter Milgrim. Michael Boyer has created the Connecticut house where all the action takes place; lighting by David Bird.For tickets, call the box office at 294-5015 or visit: www.WaterfrontPlay house.org .THEATER Chris Stone plays Helga Ten Dorp,the Dutch psychic,in the Waterfront Playhouse production of Deathtrap.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 6B Saturday,April 27,2013 enjoys attending the festival for the diversity of music, as well as the interaction with the songwriters.We get to experience music in a small intimate setting that we usually can only get at a big concert venue, and its different from the island style music down here, she said. We also enjoy meeting the musicians. This year, critically acclaimed young blues journeyman Gary Clark, Jr., who recently appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and the Late Show with David Letterman, will headline the festivals official kick-off party. It will be on Wednesday, May 1, at 6 p.m. on the Sunset Pier at the Ocean Key Resort. Weve got a little something different this year with Gary Clark Jr. said Bauer. Hes a major blues artist right now. Hes been touring with Eric Clapton, and were so excited to have him. Afree street concert at 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 4, will fill the 200 block of Duval Street with the sounds of the six-man country-rock band Bush Hawg, singer/songwriter Joanna Smith and X-Factor winner Tate Stevens. The rest of the weekend is jam packed with concerts by performers like the original Blues Brother, Steve Cropper, whos known for such classics as (SittinOn) The Dock of the Bay and Knock on Wood. Grammy nominee, James Slater, who wrote In My Daughters Eyes recorded by Martina McBride, will be on hand to sing Key Wests official song, Key West Address and more.Also expect country hitwriters Jeffrey Steele, Paul Overstreet, Bob DiPiero, Lori McKenna, Bobby Pinson, Keith Stegall, Liz Rose, Paul Jenkins, Doug Johnson and Even Stevens, as well as revered Texas singer/songwriter Robert EarlKeen.The power-trio, The World Famous Headliners, made up of chart topping writers and musicians PatMcLaughlin, Shawn Camp and Al Anderson and top-flight guitarist and songwriter Guthrie Trapp are some additional highlights.Known for the 90s hit I Love the Way You Love Me, songwriter Chuck Cannon has attended the festival since the early days. He cautioned that while many of the artists are known for country music, the festival transcends genres.We have to be really careful when we talk about genres, he said. The vast majority of songwriters will tell you they just write songs. When you put it to synthesizers and extremely processed lead guitars, thats going to make that song a pop song. But you wrap twin fiddles and steel guitar around it, and its going to be a country song. Haze, who is currently working on a new record with Gammy Award-winning producer, Paul Worley, said that the festival is an opportunity for audiences to hear new songs that havent been released yet. We can test out new material and see what connects with the audience, she said. We can navigate certain songs for our record and maybe take certain songs off. The festival is also a really good way for people to get to know songwriters before the rest of the world does.Proceeds from the Key West Songwriters Festival will benefit SHARE Military Initiative at Shepherd Center.For more information, visit www.keywestsong writersfestival.com .Regal Cinemas Searstown,Key West,294-0000 All shows that start before 4 p.m play only on weekends.

He knew his fishing buddies who had joined him on the trip were watching with envy as he had the big fish hooked up. They would never let him forget this moment despite the final outcome. Landing the brute was way better than losing it among the boys tough crowd for sure.Every time he would take a crank on the reel, the moment of glory moved ever so closer to being his, and both he and the fish wanted to win. Once past the first 10 feet, the next obstacles would be either a pulled hook or a large predator on the hunt for calories.As my mate barked out the soothing words Ive got color!, I noticed my client finally take a breath. The red tone in his face turned to a more human color and the gritted teeth relaxed, allowing a normal deep breath just as the black grouper was led into the oversized landing net. This is the moment our client will remember forever. This is why grouper fishing in shallow water is so exciting.In the state waters of the Florida Keys and in South Atlantic federal waters, shallow-water grouper season is set to open May 1, allowing the harvest of many species of grouper. The four-month closure is a relatively new wrinkle in the already-confusing regulation spectrum and is responsible for the grouper madness about to overcome these islands.With most of our grouper fishing in the Florida Keys happening in relatively shallow depths (100 feet or less), catch and release is very successful even without the use of a last-resort venting tool. The most common groupers you will encounter on the Atlantic side of the Florida Keys are red, black, gag and scamp.On our charter boats, we employ a few different tactics weve found to be successful time and time again. The most common for the largest of the groupers is to have what we call Rodney the Rod Holder take care of hooking the grouper and fighting the fish until one of the clients is able to grab the rod out of the rod holder. The fish basically hooks itself. Grouper eat smaller live fish every day and they arent real picky. Eat first and ask questions later seems to be their style. While catching yellowtail snapper, save a few that are just over legal (12 inches to the pinched tail) in your live well. You will know when the big grouper show up usually by the upgrade from a yellowtail on your lighter outfit to an unstoppable fish that finds the bottom in short order. We stack the odds in our favor with a 50WInternational outfit rigged with a threeway swivel weighted by as much as a 4 pounds of lead and an 8-foot, 100-pound test leader finished with the biggest circle hook you can find. Use a live and legal-size yellowtail snapper as bait.Drop the bait to the bottom and crank back up six times or so to avoid snags. Go big or go home, right? Be sure your rod holder can take the pressure and your boat can deal with the heavy list that will surely happen sooner rather than later. Some of the fish can be large. The rod bent over means fish on. Simple.Hand-to-hand combat with grouper can be accomplished with a 20-pound class outfit rigged with a Carolina rig, Knocker rig or free lining, which is much more sporting for sure.Live speedos, goggle eyes, pinfish, grunts and pilchards all work great as live baits but dont discount the scavenging nature of grouper. Many times while spearfishing, I have been amazed at the large grouper that show up on the scene after a shot has hit the target or sometimes the sharks get to the speared fish before I can. The pieces that are left will be vacuumed up quickly by the grouper.Use large and fresh pieces of cut bonita, mackerel or blue runners. The grouper are used to working the bottom under a frenzy; its one way that they feed. More are hooked with this operation and ultimately some are lost. Sometimes you just have to enjoy the ride.Trolling large plugs over the reef is a blast for our anglers. We troll the Rap X in a few different colors, but the closer to a yellowtail snapper pattern you can get, the better they work. We put two plugs at staggered distances and troll as fast as the plugs will allow. If the cartography on the GPS says less than 15 feet, we avoid that area and tend to troll the outer edges, mainly staying with our historical patterns from previous trips. Most big grouper find the largest part of the structure to occupy. Normally the outside of the patch holds the hardest and sharpest edge, which is what they like. When you hook the grouper, keep moving toward deeper water even if it is taking drag. Weve had to actually back down on fish to work it out of the reef. Dont be surprised if you hook up yellowjacks, mutton snapper, oversized yellowtail snapper and barracuda, too. The twirling grouper on top signifies you have won the battle and can slow the troll. Exciting? Yes. Sporting? Not so much.These are just a few of the ways to play with grouper in the Florida Keys. I often let the largest grouper go just out of respect and tend to eat only the barely legal fish. They are a quality experience on the table as long as they havent been frozen first. Fresh is always best.Grouper season in the Florida Keys is a great reason to get out on the water. Capt.
