Story, 1B In LAttitudesPhotographer Mark Hedden explores the culture that surrounds two-wheeled pedal pushers in Velo City,now open at The Studios of Key West.Story, 4B Land values rise slightlyThe overall value of taxable property in Monroe County for 2013 looks to be $19.08 billion, up 1.9 percent, or $360 million, from the previous year. Thats a far cry from the height of the housing boom that saw home values explode. When the final tax rolls were certified in June 2006, the overall value of taxable Keys property was $26.65 billion. Theyre always one year behind when things are getting better, and one year behind when things are getting worse, Realtor Brian Schmitt, broker at Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real Estate, said of the county Property Appraisers Office. That office, on May 25, ran the latest valuation numbers, used by agencies with the ability to tax and fund their operations. But the valuations are based on sales that closed in calendar year 2012, so do not reflect the current real estate market. In fact, in the first quarter of 2013, all signs generally point to a continued housing recovery in the Keys. Schmitt said that for the first three months of the year, total sales were $244 million compared to $195 million for the same period in 2012. Countywide for homes in the Multiple Listing Service, there were 597 home sales, up 15 percent from 2012s first quarter. Percentage wise, the Middle Keys-Marathon area led the way with a 27 percent increase over 2012 with 135 sales, followed by Key West to Shark Key, which recorded a 23 percent increase to 185 sales. Bay Point to Big Pine Key (13 percent increase, 97 sales) and Lower Matecumbe to Key Largo (3 percent increase, 180 sales).

She notified me, Toms, 54, said. Coast Guard spokesman Petty Officer John Paul Rios confirmed a body and the boat were found in Cuba, but referred all other questions surrounding his death to the U.S. Department of State.AState Department spokesman said that on May 27, the U.S. Interests Section in Havana was notified that Cuban authorities had recovered a U.S.-registered watercraft that had been reported missing on May 14. We can confirm that one set of human remains were found with the vessel; pending formal identification of the remains, we have no further comment.Rydberg, 40, was reported missing while he was en route to Key West. Lesseig told the Monroe County Sheriffs Office that her brother moved to Florida from Alaska to be closer to his 11-year-old son, who lives in Southwest Florida. Rydberg lived on his boat in the Garrison Bight Marina in Key West. Earlier this month, he sailed to Fort Myers. He called his sister on the morning of May 13 to tell her he was returning to Key West.

Graduate numbers declineDeclining graduation rates in the Monroe County School District the past two years are in line with a decline in the number of graduates and the result of demographic shifts, district staff says. Numbers maintained by the state Department of Education peg the 2010-11 countywide high-school graduation rate at 66.4 percent and the 2011-12 rate at 68.6 percent. That equates to 547 graduates in 2012, down 33 from the previous year. The 2013 graduation rate hasnt been calculated yet but Coral Shores, Marathon and Key West high schools plan to hand out even fewer diplomas, 487, next week. Graduation rates in Monroe are slightly below the statewide averages. The reduction in the number of seniors districtwide is an actual result of a smaller senior student cohort at two schools in our district ... Key West High School and Marathon High School, said the districts director of assessment and accountability, Christina McPherson The number of seniors at Coral Shores High School is consistent with the previous year. School Board member John Dick said a declining graduation rate isnt an immediate effect but representative of declining populations, particularly in Key West and Marathon, that happened several years ago. Youre just now seeing that reflected in the graduation numbers, he said.

The taxing district that oversees the budgets of Key Largos fire and ambulance services severed its contract with Key Largo Volunteer Fire-Rescue Inc. on March 25 due to disagreements with the long-serving Chief Sergio Garcia. The Ambulance Corps took over leadership of the department and started a new nonprofit corporation called the Key Largo Volunteer Fire Department.But Key Largo residents began receiving the letters this week soliciting donations for the Key Largo Volunteer Fire-Rescue Department. The group still exists and is working to regain the contract with the taxing district next year. But until then, the Key Largo Volunteer Fire Department is providing fire protection to the area.Jack Bridges, the Ambulance Corpsattorney, calls the letter misleading. They own the name Key Largo Volunteer Fire-Rescue Inc.,so theres nothing anyone can do about them using it, Bridges said. Combined with the name, however, other things in the letter could mislead the public into believing that this company is providing public fire service in Key Largo. Nevertheless, the envelope containing the letter states: It is your donation that supports our volunteer Fire Department. Your contribution pays for the items that help save lives and property! Garcia, who led the original department for 15 years, said he didnt read the letter and the language was drafted before his department lost the contract in March. He said he did not know how the letter was mailed. The department paid Sykesville, Md., company Omni Computer Services $1,800 to send the letters, according to a Fire-Rescue Department source. It is not clear when the money was paid, who authorized it or when Omni was given the order to mail the letters. Russell Yagel, the FireRescue Departments lawyer, said he has no idea how the letter went out. He said Frank Conklin, the president of the corporation, said he also did not know how the letter was mailed. According to Yagel, Conklin said donors who sent money will have their donations either returned or will be asked if they want the money to go to the new department. Conklin could not be reached for comment. We dont want to mislead anyone, Yagel said.By DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comKEY LARGOSchool Board hands over ArcherThe Monroe County School District and city of Key West jointly recognized major milestones for both at a Thursday ceremony at Glynn Archer Elementary School on White Street. For the schools community, the occasion marked the 90th anniversary of the institution, which has served Key West since 1923, first as a high school, then a junior high and finally an elementary, which will close its doors next week. On the city side, members of the City Commission lauded four years of planning and deal-making that resulted in the School District on Thursday formally turning over the keys to the building, which will undergo a major renovation to serve as the next city hall.Mayor Craig Catespush to rehab the 80-year-old school resulted in shelving a nearly 10-year plan to rebuild city hall at 525 Angela St. in the heart of Old Town. That building is falling apart and moldy, and city staff has been working out of rented office space.In his comments Thursday, Cates recalled that when the school opened in 1923, It represents Key Wests success, its pride and its future.Although the last students and teachers are leaving the building and the schools long-storied history comes to an end, it will not be forgotten. Ninety years later, we are here again proud of our successes ... and looking to our future. In February the commission voted 5-2 to hire architectural firm Bender and Associates to design and manage the projected $20 million-plus historic rebuild. Architect Bert Bender has ample experience with restoring historic buildings, including the conversion of the Gato Cigar Factor into Monroe County governments headquarters and a decade-long renovation of the Custom House museum. Bender is still working on his design scheme for Glynn Archer and other preconstruction elements. Theres no timeline for construction. The 300 students in kindergarten through fifth grade that call Glynn Archer home will go to school next year at the new Horace OBryant Middle School campus in the aptly named Glynn Archer building.Glynn Archer was built over the summer of 1923 and opened as Monroe County High School. In 1927 it became Key West High School and then became Memorial Junior High School when Key West High moved to Flagler Avenue in 1956.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYIn a ceremony to mark both the 90th anniversary of Glynn Archer Elementary School and transition of the buildings ownership from the Monroe County School District to the city of Key West,School Board Chairman Andy Griffiths (left) hands off a ceremonial building key to Mayor Craig Cates.MONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS CLASSIFIED ADS 743-5551
up 28 percent from Bay Point to Big Pine ($345,000) and 21 percent ($508,000) from Key West to Shark Key. The Middle and Upper Keys were down 7 percent and 3 percent respectively ($354,000 and $381,000). As of March 31, there were 827 pending home sales countywide, an increase of 26 percent. That coincides with a shrinking inventory of homes for sale in all areas of the Keys, with 2,981 on the market at the end of the first quarter. During the first quarter, the average listing price increased 8 percent in the Middle Keys and 5 percent in the Upper Keys. It dropped from Key West to Shark Key (down 3 percent) and Bay Point to Big Pine (down 6 percent) compared to list prices one year earlier. What all this means for taxing agencies is more potential money available through property taxes everywhere but in Layton, which had the Keysonly decrease in the value of its taxable property, down 5.05 percent to $45,777,114. While the overall value of taxable property for Monroe County government is $19.08 billion, its $20.36 billion for the School District. Thats because a 10 percent cap on an increase in annual property assessments doesnt apply to school districts, according to the Property Appraisers Office. The 2013 tax roll will be certified July 1, after people have a chance to challenge assessments before the Value Adjustment Board.Values increase slightlyFrom Value,1A Saturday,June 1,2013 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com Island Breeze Realty is pleased that Laura Hutt has joined our team.

To Brad, its all about the air conditioning, while Beth said shell appreciate not having to worry about generators, batteries and all that goes along with maintaining off-the-grid solar systems.Once they realized precious cold air was being wasted, the Vickreys marched around the house shutting doors and windows that hadnt moved very often the past seven years or so. Until Wednesday, the couple used only a small air conditioner in their bedroom, so they could sleep comfortably.The air [conditioning] is nice, but it is so quiet. We usually run one window unit at night and theyre noisy and we have to run a generator to run the window unit, so now its quiet. The noise level has gone from headache to nothing, Ramsay-Vickrey said.She said she realized how consuming off-the-grid life is Thursday morning, when by habit she glanced at a gauge in their kitchen indicating how much charge remained in their generator batteries outside. It showed no charge, which caused a moment of panic.I said, Oh, wait, I have electricity.It was so weird. You spend so much time just checking everything and you cant do too many things at the same time, she said.The batteries will soon be gone and recycled, while the generator and the wall unit are headed for storage.Meanwhile, No Name residents continue to pull permits to connect the grid.

The EPIRB was found 33 miles north of Key West but they found no signs of Rydberg or his vessel.The Coast Guard suspended its search for Rydberg after four days, Rios said. At the time the beacon went off, the wind was blowing 20 knots and there were 3-foot seas. There were no reported storms in the area, according to the Coast Guard.Lesseig told deputies Rydberg had manual labor jobs but she is not sure for whom he worked. One of his Key West neighbors, Tony Webb, said Rydberg taught Sunday school but was not sure for which church. It was not clear at press time whether the Cuban government returned Rydbergs body back to his family.Mystery: How he hit CubaFrom Sailor,1A With powerin, sewers next?Longtime No Name Key resident Alicia Putney was spot on when she predicted that bringing commercial electricity to the island is not the end of battles.Fewer than 24 hours after the first house was connected to the Keys Energy Services grid Wednesday afternoon, No Name residents Beth RamsayVickrey and Kathy Brown paid a visit to Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority Executive Director Kirk Zuelch. The Aqueduct Authority is Monroe Countys partner in building the Cudjoe Regional wastewater system, the boundaries of which No Name Key falls in. It was once listed as a hot spot to receive sewers but has since been removed from the countys plan.It was just a very pleasant conversation. Of course, they have to revisit putting No Name Key in the central sewer plan. Now that we provided the power, they have the ability to provide central sewers, Ramsay-Vickrey, whose house was the one connected Wednesday, said. Kansas-based engineering firm Layne Heavy Civil was awarded the Cudjoe Regional design-build contract, and Zuelch said theyd been exploring the possibility of on-site cluster systems powered by solar on No Name until now. I said, With the power going out there, our engineers would look at that with the county.Sewers will just be a matter of what design will work out there, he said.Zuelch said the design for the Big Pine Key area is still a work in progress. Layne is set to begin construction in the Lower Sugarloaf Key area, but he doesnt anticipate work on Big Pine to begin until late 2014 or 2015.County Wastewater Director Kevin Wilson said the first step, if the 43 No Name homeowners were to pursue sewers, would be the Aqueduct Authority determining the cost. The county is responsible for issuing permits to connect to sewers and the island is now considered a cold spot. Ive never looked at it because it was never an issue with power not available. Well have that [conversation] in the near future about whether the presence of power changes the situation and whether it was economical, Wilson said.For No Name resident Bob Reynolds, bringing sewers to the 1,000-acre island has always been a higher priority than the much-more publicized commercial electricity spat. Roadblocks to electricity No Name homes got power from solar and generators were all but eliminated when he successfully appealed to the state Public Service Commission last month.For eight years Ive pursued a central connection for the island. In those eight years, No Name Key has been in and out of the sewer plan like a beach volleyball, Reynolds said.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comNO NAME KEY40 years for attack on 3-year-old girlAKey West man convicted of attempted murder of a 3-year-old girl in a 2008 attack on Thursday was sentenced to 40 years in prison. Christopher Farrell, who turned 50 in the Monroe County Detention Center on Stock Island May 22, was arrested Oct. 1, 2010, on charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault and aggravated battery.He attacked Sonia Romero and her then 3-year-old daughter with a 10.5inch tree saw near William and Southard streets.Old Town resident David Lybrand was passing by, saw the attack and fought Farrell off. Police quickly arrested Farrell and Lybrand went on to receive the Key West Police Departments Good Samaritan Award.Asix-person jury on Thursday spent less than half an hour deliberating before finding Farrell guilty of all charges. County Judge Wayne Miller subsequently handed down a total sentence of 40 years, 30 for the attempted murder and 10 for the other two felonies. Assistant State Attorney Colleen Dunne prosecuted while Farrell opted to represent himself. Lybrand testified during the two-day trial. According to police, Farrell attacked the mother and daughter who was wearing her St. Mary Star of the Sea Catholic School uniform at the time without warning or provocation. He grabbed the child and pushed her to the ground, then held the tree saw to her face and threatened to cut her head off. She sustained cuts on her cheek, neck and ear from the teeth of the blade, according to reports.Records maintained by the Monroe County Sheriffs Office indicate Farrell was arrested previously in 2001, 2002, 2004 and 2005 on a variety of charges, including aggravated stalking, probation violation, making false calls to 911 and resisting arrest.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comCRIME FRONT FARRELLGladdingcrew lands suspectsAmonth-long mission to protect the mutton-snapper fishery found violations that resulted in 15 misdemeanor conservation charges, says a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission report released this week. Operation For Future Generations dispatched FWC officers on the longrange patrol boat Peter Gladding as far as the Dry Tortugas, and other FWC vessels to known spawning grounds including Rileys Hump in the Lower Keys. Patrols from April 27 through May 27 did successfully increase FWC enforcement efforts focusing on mutton snappers during their most vulnerable times, says an agency account. It was accomplished through rough weather with long hours, days away from families, and mostly through the officersdedication.About a dozen officers were involved.

EDITORIALInsurance lobby keeps on winningLETTERS TO THE EDITOROpen channel for safetyFor many years I have traveled through the Wheel Ditch just bayside of Robbies Marina on the north end of Upper Matecumbe Key. I realized each time going thru that it would be only a matter of time before someone was killed there.The Wheel Ditch is a shallow, narrow creek through the mangroves bayside of Robbies Marina. The entrances to it are extremely shallow and require boats to be on plane or to slow down and trim up the motor in order to get into or out of the creek. In the center of the creek, there is a blind bend. I always sounded my horn to alert oncoming boats. Many times, a boat larger than 22 feet (which had no business being in there) forced me to move all the way over to the right, clipping branches when doing so. Perhaps swerving to avoid a collision is what caused Brent Johnson to lose his life there.The creek is a lovely but dangerous place for kayaking. If boats on plane slowed down for kayakers, they would be unable to get up onto plane again without stirring up bottom sediments and possibly hitting a submerged log. They would have to continue painfully slow the rest of the way. The recent death of Brent Johnson, a backcountry guide, demonstrates the danger. But there is a possible solution that would prevent future accidents. Many years ago, there was a very shallow channel to the bayside of the wheel ditch that had nothing but flats on either side of it. Visibility was unobstructed on all sides. This cut was used by shallow-draft backcountry boats. In the late 1990s, this cut was filled in by park rangers who erected bird stakes. This action forced all boats to either travel miles to the Intracoastal Waterway or to use the Wheel Ditch. Most boaters chose using the Wheel Ditch to avoid consuming fuel and time by the lengthy detour. Lets look into reopening the former natural channel bayside of the Wheel Ditch. This would greatly reduce use of the Wheel Ditch and exposure of boaters to accidents. Anne Baxter IslamoradaDespite accountability gains, consumers continue to pay the price of arroganceToday marks the official start of the six-month hurricane season. How appropriate that some of the biggest winds emanate from Tallahassee.Just this week, Gov. Rick Scott signed into law legislation that appoints an inspector general to oversee Citizens Property Insurance Corp. Unlike previous tissuethin efforts at watchdogs, this inspector will report directly to the Florida Cabinet, not to Citizensmanagement.Consumers remember last years outcry when internal auditors at the state-backed insurer were fired after blowing the whistle on excessive travel expenses, lavish spending, alleged misappropriation of funds, lucrative severance packages and other inappropriate behavior by a handful of supervisors between 2004 and 2010. This legislation will bring much needed reforms to better protect the taxpayers who support Citizens Property Insurance, Scott said. Also this week, the state handed down a $1.26 million fine against Universal Property and Casualty Insurance Co., a Fort Lauderdale firm that is Floridas second-largest property insurer (after Citizens). The fine came after a two-year investigation into repeated violations in claims handling, rate filings, irregularities in financial transactions and underwriting. For a company that holds $765 million in annual premium business in Florida, the fine is a token slap on the wrist. Thats the problem with the way Florida treats the insurance industry. Enforcement is weak and at virtually every turn, industry lobbyists are able to stall, stymie or even write legislation that favors the industry at the expense of consumers. Agood example came during this years legislative session when the Florida Senate tried, unsuccessfully, to push through a $12-per-vehicle break on Floridas annual vehicle registration fees. To pay for it, the Senate wanted to end a decades-old tax credit that gives insurance companies a 15 percent break on payroll taxes for non-licensed workers they employ in Florida. The industry objected strongly and claimed that eliminating the credit would increase payroll costs and that expense would then be passed on to consumers in higher rates. Even though the Senate voted 39-0 to give the break to auto owners at the expense of the insurance industry, the House refused to consider the measure and it died. That $12-per-car reduction may not sound like much, but consider this: That represented a 55 percent cut in higher vehicle registration fees that went into effect in 2009, and next year could have saved Florida motorists an estimated $224 million.Instead, the insurance industry gets to keep the $224 million thank you very much, Florida House members. Senate President Don Gaetz on Thursday said he hopes to resurrect the issue next year. Our forecast: The insurance industry will whip up its wind machine again and Florida consumers get to further subsidize their profits whether its hurricane season or not. Leferes a true leaderAmid the morass of media negativity, an invigorating current ran through the recent Military Affairs Committee meeting at the Fly Navy building on Trumbo Point in Key West.Agathering of accomplished individuals convened to recognize a cadre of military professionals for their distinguished service. It was a potent antidote to the chronic cynicism and disingenuous rhetoric proliferating the airways.Within this room of polished, proficient and savvy professionals lies the answer to many problems that we face as a nation and society. Those assembled arent theoreticians. Theyre not shielded from the consequences of their behavior by committee talk, board discussions or nepotism. Administrative failure and miscalculations are not tolerated, as individuals will die behind their errors. The esprit de corps resonating within the room was palpable, as the commanders of their respective units acknowledged the authentic and exemplary performance of a select group of men and women. As this meeting drew to a close, Sheriff Rick Ramsays longstanding diligence and determination to make certain that our wounded warriors have a safe and successful bicycle ride was recognized by Naval Air Station Key West Cmdr. Patrick Lefere. The energy and enthusiasm that Sheriff Ramsay and his deputies have generated to ensure that these riders are exposed to the full medical and psychological benefits that this event is designed to deliver is legend. The brilliant operation developed and managed by the Sheriffs Office has guided hundreds of severely injured men and women on their rides from Key Largo to Key West. Capt. Leferes team incorporated and organized all of the details necessary to make this award presentation a reality. His love of country and community is reflected in the pivotal responsibilities that our nation has placed upon his shoulders. Its reassuring to know that the United States of America has determined that our survival as a nation and our fate as a people rests in the hands of a gifted leader the caliber of Capt. Patrick Lefere. John Donnelly Key LargoOceans for everyoneRe: the letter to the editor about the Marathon sandbar being violated by the Sea King party boat: I didnt realize the letter writer owned the ocean. We are keeping intoxicated boaters (mostly local) off the water. We are the cab. We have local cab companies waiting at the dock for our guests. Everyone benefits. We have a very large holding tank for gray and black water. Does the letter writer? Im not entitled to free trade? Sorry the letter writer is so miserable. Life is to be enjoyed. Its short. Think about it. Would the letter writer like a free pass? Bill Hauck Marathon Crane Point protection?Marathon City Councilman Dick Ramsay wants the city to hedge its $727,000 bet on Crane Point Museum & Nature Center. After agreeing to apply for a state Community Development Block Grant on behalf of the nonprofit, the council on May 14 approved Crane Points application for a passive-recreation conditional-use permit to build a 2,900-foot zip-line course. The application was up for a second reading typically a formality on Tuesday, but Ramsay pulled it from the consent agenda to suggest adding a caveat to the grant language.Should it become necessary or desirable on the part of the board of the Florida Keys Land and Sea Trust to liquidate any or all of the Crane Point property, the city of Marathon [would be] granted first right of refusal to purchase so that well always have the ability to make sure this property is forever going to be dedicated to environmental purposes, he said.Ramsay said he believes Crane Point is important to the citys goal to be an ecotourism destination. The council approved Ramsays motion to add the language, 4-1, with Councilman Rich Keating dissenting. Crane Point board President Jeff Smith and board member Norval Smith did not return calls for comment by press time Friday.Financial viability is one of many concerns that opponents of the zip line have raised since Crane Point announced its intention to build the course. Those against it contend the city is putting itself at risk by securing state money for the project.The state loan is based on the zip line creating 21 jobs for at least one year. The city would be obligated to pay back $35,000 for each job not created, though Crane Point has pledged to cover the first four if necessary. Smith has said that in its first year, the zip line could generate $1 million for Crane Point but hasnt said how that number was arrived at, for example, the expected number of visitors and the expected entrance fee. The proposed zip line would start at the museum building close to U.S. 1 and end at the Crane house on Florida Bay. It would have nine towers, five groundlevel landing spots and two sky bridges, mostly over water. All but two or three of the towers would be 37 feet high, the rest 46.25 feet.If zip line fails,city gets buy opportunityBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONFinal taxi law OKdThe city of Marathon is officially keeping an eye on the taxi industry. Regulations initially approved on May 14 were unanimously approved at second reading on Tuesday before the Marathon City Council. The council agreed to reduce a proposed $500 initial registration to $300 and a $250 annual renewal fee to $100 twice a year. The council had also agreed to reduce a $50 fee per vehicle and driver, after the first driver, to $5 after Haws told the council how much drivers and vehicles are constantly changing. But the council left the $50 fee in place Tuesday after Councilwoman Ginger Snead pointed out it would cost the city up to $50 to process each new driver and vehicle. By the time we give them a card and do their background and all the things were doing, it costs about $50, Snead said. We just wanted it to be able to pay for itself; we need to leave everything pretty much as it is. Were at a bare bones of cost right now.City Manager Roger Hernstadt added that the city would be a certificate holder on the cab companies insurance policies, as requested by Mayor Mike Cinque.The insurance companies are bound by law, then, to notify us within 30 days of a lapse in insurance or change in insurance, Cinque said.Cab companies have a history of coming and going in Marathon. There are at least five now operating in the city: Island Taxi, On Time Taxi, Bob Gnarley, Keyhopper and Taxi in the Tropics.In other business Tuesday: l The council approved a request by St. Columba Episcopal Church to sell beer and wine, and allow a demonstration of border collies herding sheep, as part of a planned Florida Keys Celtic Festival Jan. 10 and 11. It would feature live musical acts and traditional Celtic festival games. l The council briefly discussed plans to install a fence in city-owned right away along 15th Street. Sheriff Rick Ramsay said in February that hed like it there to separate a portion of the Marathon mobile-home park Trailerama from the road. It would not block access to the park. Were going to meet with the sheriff and see if we can figure out a way to collaborate on a fence on 15th Street with the appropriate feel for the community, Hernstadt said.$50 driver and auto fee still in placeBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON

Regardless of how you felt about your prom, most of us took part in this ritual.Whether you went with a group, a date or didnt go at all, prom is a milestone we each experienced in some way, shape or form. Although dances and prom-like events have been going on for centuries, it wasnt until the economic boom of the 1950s that the prom-dress industry exploded. This was when girls started planning special shopping trips with their mothers and friends in search of the dress an experience that still takes place today. The shopping, primping and planning is as important as the actual event and is part of this defining moment in students high-school years. Prom is a moment most of us can recall. Do you remember what you wore? What about with whom you went? When you think back on proms through the decades, you likely think of the attire. Each generation has developed its own dress code.In the 1950s, Grace Kellys black and white floorlength gown from Rear Window had a huge influence on dress styles. Dresses in that era had a fitted bodice with gathered voluminous full-circle tulle skirts.The 1960s had Jackie Kennedy, who made ladylike chic look effortless. The pillbox hat and simple shift dresses were popular in pastel colors with small bows as accents. The 1970s had Farrah Fawcet, who created the first celebrity hairstyle with her famous feathered hair.John Travolta also had a role. The s were greatly influenced by disco music and known for bell-bottomed pants, ruffled tuxedo shirts and crazy tuxedo colors such as the orange and baby blue ones worn in Dumb and Dumber. Many of the dresses from that time had empire waists with tighter-fitting tops and looser bottoms. Gold lame, velvet and lace were also a big trend in formal wear for women.The 1980s prom style had big sleeves, oversized shoulder pads, big hair and lots of ruffles oh, the tragedy that was fashion in the 1980s. Madonna was the style icon of the time, making fingerless gloves a popular prom accessory.Princess Diana was the style icon of the 1990s.

When Korean War veteran Gabe Spataro was relearning how to scuba dive, he told his instructors a riveting tale about his wheeler-dealer role in an effort half a century ago to bring the nowfamous Christ of the Abyss underwater statue to the United States from Italy.Spataro, 80 and legally blind from macular degeneration, described his wine-tasting trip to Europe, his fathers connection with an Italian steamship line, his coordination of the Underwater Society of Americas third national convention and his dilemma: How to get the 1,100-pound bronze statue of Jesus up one floor to the grand ballroom of the Palmer House in Chicago without paying the house union to do the work.It was a wacky story, said Jim Elliott, president and founder of the Chicago-based nonprofit group Diveheart, which teaches children, adults and veterans with disabilities how to dive.So wacky, Elliott said, that he didnt believe it until Spataro produced 1962 photographs of himself as a young man standing next to the Christ statue. In some, he was dressed in a trench coat while the statue was in a crate on Chicagos Navy pier. In others, he was sporting aSpataro dives the underwater Key Largo spotBy CAMMY CLARKcclark@MiamiHerald.comKEY LARGO Photo courtesy FLORIDA STATE ARCHIVESA diver gets up close and personal with the Christ of the Abyss statue off Key Largo.See Christ,6BSee Style,2BDurkin,Konrath lead awardsSeniors Taylor Konrath and Riley Durkin were named the 2013 student-athletes of the year Wednesday at Marathon High Schools spring sports awards banquet.The Florida State-bound Durkin starred for the Dolphinsfootball, soccer and tennis teams, while Konrath was a standout volleyball, soccer and softball player.The trophy case at the Konrath house must be nearing capacity, as Wednesdays award was just the latest of a string of accolades shes garnered this year.

Mimi and Bud Floback bought a second home next to their house in the Upper Keys partly for guests, but also to help display art theyve collected from around the world.Enter either house and its like stepping into a contemporary art museum. Original works by 80 artists are professionally mounted on the walls, hang from the high ceilings and cascade from the top story to the ground floor. In the yard, even items that look like tents are major pieces.During a recent tour, resident art critic Max, an African grey parrot, blurted his opinion of David Batchelors series of colorful moving dollies: Its a pretty picture sculpture. Yes, its a pretty picture sculpture, Mimi Floback responded.While the parrot has destroyed most of the baseboards, a couple of chairs and part of the staircase of their main house, Max never touches the art, Floback said.Thats a good thing, because over the past 15 years, the Flobacks have donated about 20 major works to the Miami Art Museum to become part of its permanent collection. This month, the Flobacks gifted 10 more major works most to be delivered in time for the December grand opening of the renamed Perez Art Museum Miami in its new digs on Biscayne Bay.Retired executive Bud Floback, an avid sportsman who used to fly his own planes, said he has become accustomed to watching the art come and go. Bud always says, What are we giving away now? Mimi said. This time, the works that will disappear from their walls and living space include Josephine Mecksepers commercial display Thank a Vet (2008), Elliott Hundleys collage Monument (2004), Susan Rothenbergs painting Dominos-Hot (20012002), a Rineke Dijkstra photograph from a 1994 series of Portuguese bullfighters, Sarah MorrisLe Meridien [Rio] (2012) and a 1990 sculpture using fluorescent lights by Dan Flavin.It all ends up in the same place in Miami, Bud said.Wish listFor the past few years, Mimi has focused much of her art purchases on meeting the wish list of the museum she has supported since 1997, not long after it changed its name from the Center for the Fine Arts and became a collecting institution. Mimi has been fighting for Miami to have a firstclass institution, said Tobias Ostrander, chief curator for the museum. She understands it is important to have a strong collection as part of a new museum. On that wish list was Mecksepers Thank a Vet, described by a Miami Art Museum press release as a striking, politically charged work that includes found, mass-produced objects that reference the body situated atop of a rectangular mirrored base taken from commercial displays.The piece incorporates a walker, mannequin legs, socks, a toilet mat, steel wool, a box of underwear, toilet brush, mannequin chest, motor oil container and a T-shirt that says: If you love your freedom, Thank a Vet.It was something we needed and wanted for the opening exhibition, KeysNet.com Keynoter 2B Saturday,June 1,2013 Crossword solutionSolution to the May 29 puzzle.

Many of the prom trends from that time included offthe-shoulder dress styles, black was the reigning color and choker-style necklaces were popular. If you went to prom in the early s, theres a chance your date may have even sported a mullet.Todays prom resembles something off the red carpet. The girls don gowns in styles ranging from formfitting to A-line, all in vibrant hues such as blue, turquoise and coral. Many of the dresses have cutouts along the sides and back and many more have jewel accents, making it almost unnecessary to wear much, if any, jewelry. Although traditional mens formal wear is black and white, the modern trend is for the guys to wear matching tuxedo accessories to match their dates dress, which is what many men are wearing to prom this year. Under black suits or tuxes, men are wearing complementing shirts and vests in blue, turquoise and coral. When you look at prom style today versus earlier eras, there are a few things that have stayed the same. Corsages its still customary for men to buy their dates a corsage that matches her dress. Jewelry costume jewelry is still the staple for prom, so save what you wore, as you can probably have your daughter wear it to her prom and it would still fit right in style. Shopping trips the prom dresses worn today spare no expense and are done with their mothers and friends in tow. Just like prom dresses and tuxes, fashion has a universal appeal while remaining unique to each individual. Leah Maki is a fashionobsessed style blogger.

Ostrander said. It fits in with some other things, like a piece by Marcel Duchamp, an important early modernist, who talks about ready made and commodity culture the things we buy and exhibit as art work.Ostrander asked Floback to look at the Meckseper piece in December while it was being shown during Art Basel Miami Beach. Quirky or contemporary art often requires a lot of thought, Floback said. Sometimes you go home and think about it, and I did. She concluded Thank a Vet was conveying the same message her father, who worked as an engineer in the defense industry, tried to instill in her 50 years ago: Believe in the free distribution of information, and dont believe everything the government says. Floback bought the piece at a significant discount with the contingency it would be gifted to the new museum.But for now, the large work of art, about the size of a pool table, is at her main house. It arrived two weeks ago. The Flobacks will have about five months to enjoy it before the work is delivered to the museum.Never ask costFloback would not say how much she paid for the work. Maxs laughing: The silly girl asked the price. We dont do that within the art world and certainly not for a newspaper story.? But she did reveal how much she paid for her first piece of art: $120. It was a wonderful lithograph of a still life scene of flowers in a vase painted by the great French artist Henri Matisse.It was about 1969, and she was working for a design company in Boca Raton. A dealer in Paris had brought that lithograph and several edition pieces for the company to place in homes of the wealthy.I was so poor; I had a rattan thing I got from the Salvation Army, said Floback, who grew up in Maryland in a family with five kids who all wore handme-downs. The lithograph was $120, but it might as well have been $120,000. I asked my bosses: If we dont use it this season, can I buy it on layaway?? The bosses said yes. Floback, who graduated from the now-defunct International Design School in Washington, honed her art knowledge while working for a Coral Gables-based design company that dealt with commercial properties. In 1975, Jon Ashton, who would become her second husband, introduced her to the business of plant rentals. She started a Plant Systems franchise in Miami, offering art rental as well. It took off like a rocket, she said.At the same time, she began purchasing works in her price range from dealers and at auctions for her own collection. She said she did her homework, evidenced by the stacks of art books in her home, and kept to her budget.Mimi is a real expert on getting deals on amazing expensive artists, Ostrander said. Floback has worked with art dealers in Miami, New York, London and Austria. For years, she was trying to get a Flavin sculpture, on the museums wish list as a cornerstone piece. The work of the late American artist was out of her price range until last fall. At a London auction, she acquired a 6-foot high Flavin piece with yellow, green, blue and red fluorescent lights, which Max loves when it is brightly lit.

Hes also a well-known photographer, who makes his home in Key West. His eye for the rare and exotic has translated into a photographic study of a different type of fauna, namely Key West bikers. No, not the Harleytypes. Were talking the two-wheeled, pedal-power bicyclists who navigate the streets of the Southernmost City. Heddens work, titled Velo-City, is now on exhibit at The Studios of Key West, 600 White St., Key West. Curators of the show describe his work as an appreciation of the various and manifold ways the bicycle is ingrained in our small town culture. Heres Heddens take: The bike is a poor mans chariot and a rich mans escape, arguably the best machine mankind has even invented. I know people who never pay more than $35 for a bike, and people who have laid out over $5,000 for a frame alone. Hedden adds that one estimate puts the number of Key West bike riders at 5,000. And, he noted, most houses in town have a bike or three locked to a porch or a gate. Businesses in the historic district, to be successful, cater to bike-riding clients, he adds. Some of the more prominent biking icons in Key West have been captured as part of Heddens Velo-City exhibit. The show, which opened at The Studios May 16, will be on exhibit in Space 2 through June 14.

Howard Livingston plays the Waterfront June 10Its a long way from the mountains of eastern Kentucky to the soft sands of Key West beaches. But for Howard Livingston, the distance is not important its the music that makes him happy. He brings his Mile Marker 24 band to the Waterfront Playhouse June 10 for a performance thats sponsored by the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservancy. Tickets cost $50 and include a catered cast party after the show.Livingston, who plays acoustic guitar, sings, writes music, and delivers lots of concerts to raise money for charities, will be headlining the Waterfront concert, which gets underway at 8 p.m.The Waterfront is located at 312 Wall St., Key West. The catered party after the show will take place in the Key West Sculpture Garden right outside the entrance of The Waterfront Playhouse. The Keys music man picked up his first guitar at age 5, but didnt really take music seriously until later after a business career that involved lots of travel. Among those trips, were treks to the Florida Keys, where Livingston says he developed a severe case of Keys fever. Frequent visits became more focused on music and lifestyle, and he moved to the Keys permanently where hes now a fixture on the music scene. For more information about the June 10 concert, or to purchase tickets, call the Waterfront box office at 294-5015.Concert tickets include catered party afterwardsMUSIC Photographer brings Wings of ParadiseWildlife photographer Paul Carmichael will be the featured artist at Frangipani Gallery, 1102A Duval St., starting June 7.

tuxedo and Hawaiian lei while the statue was displayed in the grand ballroom as the conventions guest of honor.Oh my God, this guy is for real, Elliott said after seeing the pictures.Spataro, who began diving in 1956 during the sports pioneering days, also told Elliott another surprising tidbit: He had never made the trip to John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park to see the statue in its permanent home.That changed two weeks ago, when two diving buddies working with Diveheart helped Spataro make the 25-foot descent to meet Christ again.Spataro couldnt see the statue while looking straight at it because of his eye disease, whose onset was about three years ago. But he could see it through the side of his mask with his peripheral vision.Christ of the Abyss was in the familiar pose hands raised and head looking up at heaven, offering a blessing of peace. But almost five decades of marine growth had changed the statues onceshiny bronze appearance.It looked a little messed up, Spataro said. I brushed his hair.... We were buddies.Divers are told not to touch the statue because it is now covered with fire coral, which can cause stinging and burning pain. But Spataro said he wore gloves to touch it again.Early goingSpataros passion for diving began a year after he returned from Chuncheon, Korea, where he served as an Army supply sergeant in a helicopter battalion. He was working at the family pizzeria when two customers told him about their plans to go scuba diving. He decided to try it the next day. He was given fins, a weight belt, a mask and snorkel and an air tank to wear on his back. The one instruction: Dont stop breathing, Spataro recalled. Despite having to surface quickly because no one told him he needed to turn on the valve to the air tank, he fell in love with swimming with the fish and other marine life of Lake Geneva. Soon, a new group called the Illinois Console of Skin and SCUBADivers was meeting at the pizzeria. In 1960, their president, Carl Hauber, also was slated to become president of the Underwater Society of America. Spataro says Hauber named him to head the societys 1962 convention because I was in the restaurant business and knew how to throw parties. Thats when the wacky story began. Hauber mentioned to Spataro that Italian dive equipment manufacturer Egidio Cressi was having another replica statue made from the mold of Italian sculptor Guido Gallettis Il Cristo degli Abissi. Hauber thought it would be a great draw for the convention. The first replica made headlines when it was submerged in 1954 in San Fruttuoso Bay, Italy, near where Dario Gonzatti, the first Italian to use scuba gear, died seven years earlier. The second replica was placed under water in 1961 near St. Georges Harbor in Grenada. It was a gift of the Navy of Genoa to the locals who helped rescue the crew of an Italian vessel that was destroyed by a fire in that harbor. While the third replica was being constructed in 1961, Spataro traveled to several countries in Europe to taste wine. He ended up in Genoa to meet with Cressi. By this time, Cressi had decided to donate a third statue to the Underwater Society of America. I asked him, How are you getting it to Chicago? Spataro said. He said: Thats your problem. Im just giving it to you.Jesus travelsThe convention budget had no money for that, so Spataro got creative. His father knew someone who worked at a steamship line, and he was able to wangle free passage for Jesus from Genoa to Navy Pier in Chicago.Another friend had a trucking company, and Jesus got another free ride from the pier to the Palmer House. But when the union would agree only to halve its usual charge to $900 to take the statue up one story to the grand ballroom, Spataro said he enlisted another friend, a union baggage handler for TWA. Aminister who had escaped killings in Africa and was a friend of his cousins wrote the litany that was read at the conventions dedication of the statue on Aug. 18, 1962. I wish I could find it, Spataro said. It said this statue was for the ones who lived and worked and played and died at sea. He really did a nice job.After the convention, the statue was trucked to the TWA hangar at OHare airport, awaiting transport 1,500 miles away to John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park.At this point, according to a 1987 article published in several diving newsletters by Eva Mills Dunlap, the first 6,000 miles of the statues journey from Genoa to Chicago had cost only $25 for insurance while it was displayed at the Palmer House.With no money to ship it to Florida, the statue sat at the airport. Within a month or so, it was moved to the Illinois National Guard hangar because one of Spataros pizza customers was a captain in the guard and was willing to take the statue in a transport plane if a plane were to be needed to fly to Florida during the Cuban Missile Crisis. But the missile crisis was averted. Finally, Spataro said, he got a call on a snowy December night while working a banquet that a Navy Reserve plane could take the statue but was leaving imminently. Atuxedo-clad Spataro called the National Guard captain and friends to meet him at the hangar.Using a forklift, the group got the statue to the Navy Reserve plane. The cargo opening was about 10 feet off the ground and at an angle. Because the statue was much heavier at its base, Spataro and the captain climbed onto the crate near the head to balance the weight.For more on this story, go to www.KeysNet.com .Spataro left with billFrom Christ,1B KeysNet.com Keynoter 6B Saturday,June 1,2013 Who is your American Hero?Write a short essay telling us who your Keys hero is.
