Story, 3A Initial schools budget:$83.4MAfirst look at the Monroe County School Districts proposed 2013-14 budget, presented to the School Board at a Tuesday workshop, indicates year-over-year increases in both revenue and expenses. Included is $1.4 million set aside for teacher raises resulting from a statewide $480 million earmark proposed by Gov. Rick Scott and approved by the state Legislature.Finance Director Jim Drake said the district expects to take in $84.3 million and spend $83.4 million compared to the adopted 2012-13 budget, with revenue of $80.1 million and $79.5 million in spending. Drake said his calculations are predicated on an estimated enrollment of 6,990 students in traditional public schools and another 1,131 attending charter public schools. The per-student spending amounts to $9,529. Built into the budget and approved by the board is a mandatory and controversial seven-day unpaid employee furlough program instituted in 2010 by thenSuperintendent Joseph Burke that saves the district $1.2 million, or $171,428 for each furlough day.The preliminary budget presented Tuesday indicates a positive balance of $839,244 or, when considered relative to the furlough program, the equivalent of just fewer than five furlough days.Superintendent Mark Porter, in recent negotiations with the United Teachers of Monroe bargaining team, said continued furloughs depend on the fiscal outlook. The proposed budget will go to public hearings July 30, Aug. 27 and Sept. 3.

Joe Garcia wants to start a national discussion about the issue of exempting privately owned military housing in Key West and elsewhere from local property taxes.Friday afternoon, Garcia, a Miami Democrat who represents the Keys, said an amendment he proposed for the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013, which passed the House Thursday in a 315108 vote, would highlight the issue by requiring a detailed tracking report from around the country.His Key West field director, Jennifer George-Nichol, said the amendment requires the secretary of defense to detail any project across the country in which the owner of that project has outstand-Congressman gets amendment added to defense billBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMILITARYWoman who fled family gets a yearAmother who disappeared from her central Pennsylvania home in 2002 and was later declared legally dead before resurfacing in the Florida Keys on April 26 has been sent to jail on a probation violation.The Pensacola News Journal reports that Brenda Heist, whos known in the Santa Rosa County court system as Kelsie Smith, was sentenced Tuesday to a year in jail.She pleaded no contest to failing to check in with authorities in the Tampa area after leaving the Pensacola area following her April release from jail.

For an airport the size of Marathons, FAAre g ulations require 240 feet between the centerlines of the runways and parallel taxiway. The distance at Marathon is 200 feet. There are three possible outcomes, accordin g to Horton:The FAAcould insist upon movin g the runway 40 feet to the north, which would mean cuttin g out 20 percent of the rare hardwood hammock alon g Aviation Boulevard.That road runs parallel to the airport and the hammock serves as a noise buffer for a lar g e residential area.The airport could decrease the 50-foot-wide taxiway adjacent to the runway to 35 feet and move the centerline 40 feet toward U.S. 1. That alternative would mean the loss of some han g ars and commercial ramp space, but would be far less costly and could be done in phases to keep the runway open.The airport could be allowed to take a no action alternative, meanin g it would continue to operate as is. Horton has advocated for no action in the past, but said hes reservin g jud g ment now.I am not makin g that recommendation at this time. I dont want to prejud g e it. I want the environmental assessment to come out and hear the public comments and comments from the city of Marathon and what the [Monroe County Commission] has to say, he said.We have not heard from them what the consequences would be if the noaction alternative were to be selected, Horton said. Local officials will not advocate movin g the runway. Not only is it the most expensive option, but securin g permits to remove 1,012 trees from the hammock would be difficult to obtain and the project would shut down the airport for six to nine months.That would affect 111 people, includin g four county employees, that work at the airport or have a han g ar there, accordin g to Horton.We looked at whats the g ross of the businesses and what would be the impact if it was shut down for six to nine months, he said.County has three optionsFrom Airport,1A Ho r to n : Comme r cial flight s a r e n t likelyMonroe County Airports Director Peter Horton has lon g been skeptical about the viability of commercial air service in the Middle Keys.On Tuesday, he told the Marathon City Council he feels the idea is off the table now that construction of a U.S. Customs and Border Protection office in the county-run Florida Keys Marathon Airport is imminent.Its not impossible, but not likely for the near future at least. Customs is g oin g in a space normally occupied with the airlines. It would require a much lar g er capital investment to duplicate the space after theyre taken over by Customs, he said.The county submitted percent complete plans for the $1.1 Customs office to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on May 31. Construction is tentatively scheduled to be g in Nov. 8 and be complete by July 11, 2014.Several commercial air carriers have tried and failed to serve Marathon over the years.Delta bailed after just five months flyin g to and from Atlanta in 2007, while Cape Airs nine-passen g er operation to Fort Myers failed after one year when it was turned down for a $165,000 local g overnment subsidy. That was lar g ely due to the Marathon City Council refusin g by a 3-2 vote, to pay $17,000 of that subsidy. The Monroe County Commission was prepared to commit $40,000. Other airlines that have come and g one over the years include American Ea g le, US Airways and Gulfstream (now Silver Airways). Horton has always maintained the county has never stopped attemptin g to solicit airlines for Marathon. But Delta left even with a $500,000 revenue g uarantee on the table because it was losin g money on the service. Air service is not out of the question, he said. But the decision was made for Customs, and of the two, its the more doable project. Marathon City Councilman Dick Ramsay said he a g rees with Horton re g ardin g viability, but disa g rees about space precludin g a lar g er carrier from comin g to the Middle Keys. We still have the other side of the terminal where the car rental [operators] are, Ramsay said, referrin g to Avis, Bud g et and Enterprise counters on the west side of the terminal. Still, Ramsay said the fact it could support commercial service doesnt mean it will anytime soon.With Customs moving in,space becomes issueBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONspendin g in that period.When Scott rolled out his education bud g et, totalin g more than $20 billion for fundin g kinder g arten throu g h g rade 12, included was a proposed $2,500 across-theboard pay raise for teachers.Followin g several rounds of debate in the state House and Senate, the ultimate deal included the $480 million needed to pay for the raises but extended the pool from just teachers to include administrators and other staff such as g uidance counselors. Lower-level employees are not included.State lawmakers also tied the raises to a va g ue mechanism that has lon g do gg ed districts tryin g to develop how to measure teacher performance.School Board Chairman Andy Griffiths said the raise is misleadin g He said it was sold to the public as bein g funded at the state level but in the case of Monroe and other so-called land rich counties, it is paid for primarily by local taxpayers. In Monroe County the local required property tax for education fundin g is 90 percent. For the pay raise, that means 90 percent of the $1.4 million comes from within the Keys while the remainder, around $100,000, comes from Tallahassee. I initially thou g ht it was a g ift, Griffiths said. State officials simply raised our local tax liability. Its a statemandated tax increase to pay for teacher raises.He also pointed out that school-related personnel werent included in the proposal: It doesnt leave any money for the poor people drivin g the buses, moppin g the floor and servin g lunches.Drake said the district would collaborate with their bar g ainin g units to launch a performance mechanism that will determine how the $1.4 million is divided.Griffiths: Raise misleadingFrom Schools,1A in g local tax obli g ation. In Key West, Balfour Beatty is the perfect example. Garcias action follows Wednesdays veto by Gov. Rick Scott of a state bill that would have made privately owned military housin g in Florida exempt from local taxes except for units not actually occupied by military members. That means the issue will play out in a November trial pittin g Balfour Beatty and its parent, Southeast Housin g LLC, a g ainst Monroe County Property Appraiser Scott Russell. In 2007, the U.S. Navy transferred 895 houses desi g nated for the military in Key West to the privately held Southeast. The transfer came with the tax exemption.In 2011, then-Property Appraiser Karl Bor g lum reversed the exemption and filed an $11.5 million lien seekin g back taxes, penalties and interest for the military housin g spread across Si g sbee Park, Trumbo Annex, Truman Annex, Peary Court and the Branch Medical Clinic on South Roosevelt Boulevard.Southeast Housin g sued. Garcia sides with Russell. On the state side, the notoriously anti-tax Scott wrote in his veto letter that a floor amendment may have had the unintended consequence of imposin g property taxes on portions of housin g developments on federal military installations that are currently fully exempt from such taxation. That apparently refers to the civilian units.State Rep. Holly Raschein (R-Key Lar g o), who championed the law, said on US1 Radio Thursday mornin g that its his job to bolster military installations and send a messa g e to D.C. that we are willin g to support our military families. We want to keep our bases in Florida and Im sure thats part of the g overnors reasonin g .Russells Sarasota-based attorney, John Dent, said of the veto letter: Who knows whats on the mind of the g overnor, callin g the veto messa g e perplexin g . It may be that Balfour Beatty and Southeast people wanted to kill it, he speculated. They may be hopin g that either throu g h the liti g ation and throu g h continued lobbyin g ... theyd make a further attempt to g et rid of their liability, the tax liens.

AKey Largo woman was charged with aggravated assault Wednesday after she pulled a handgun on one of her roommates after he hid her vodka, police say. When Sgt. Jason Madnick and Deputy Sydney Whitehouse from the Monroe County Sheriffs Office arrived at the home on Second Terrace at 6:15 p.m., they found the victim outside the house. The suspect, Kari Dangler, 51 was walking inside. The victim told Madnick that Dangler pointed the Colt Python at him when he wouldnt give up the liquor. Asked about that by Madnick, Dangler said she had the gun, owned by a third roommate, merely to clean it. Madnick found a spent bullet casing in the gun. Dangler reportedly told Madnick she fired off a shot the week before near the homes pool because a frogs noises were annoying her. Sheriffs Office records show a shots-fired call in that area on June 4 at 10 p.m., agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin said. It wasnt clear if Dangler ever got her vodka. Last August, a woman known as the Sea Hag shot a man to death on Conch Key because he wouldnt give her a Busch Light beer. Carolyn Dukeshire, 63, has since pleaded guilty to seconddegree murder and been sentenced to 30 years in state prison. on probation for using someone elses drivers license during a traffic stop. Heist, 54, left behind a husband and two children when she disappeared from her home outside Lititz, Pa., on Feb. 8, 2002. When she approached a deputy at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center in Key Largo on April 26, she said she was tired and didnt want to be missing anymore, agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin said. When she disappeared, she was going through on amicable divorce. They have two children. According to Heists account to police, her dash for freedom began with a trip to a park in Lilitz. During the divorce, she had a difficult time looking for new housing for herself and her two kids. She ended up sitting in the park, weeping in despair. Three strangers reached out and offered to let her hitchhike with them to South Florida. So she did, leaving behind two piles of sorted laundry, dishes in the sink, pork chops thawing in the refrigerator, two distraught kids and a husband who would come under suspicion for her disappearance.Heist said after a month of hitching rides, she ended up in Key West. She lived for the first two years on the streets, spending at least some nights at the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter next to the jail on Stock Island.She would spend several more years living in a camper with a boyfriend, then moved on to Hollywood in 2008 to 2009 and in 2010 to the Pensacola area until she fled abruptly after the theft of the drivers license was discovered. She ended up in Pinellas County, where she was stopped in Dunedin on Jan. 28 for driving a car with an expired tag. She originally gave her name as Carol Ann Dochow, who is a drug and alcohol abuse counselor in Monroe County. Dochow was contacted by Pinellas County police and told them that a Kelsie Smith had once worked for her. Heist also had identification under the name Kelsie Smith. It got so confusing and unverifiable that the officer arrested her under the name Jane Doe, with an alias of Kelsie Smith, on misdemeanor charges of possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and providing false ID. Heists real identity remained a mystery. She was jailed in Pinellas, and later transferred in mid-February to the Santa Rosa County Jail for the more serious felony charge of using a stolen drivers license. Once she was released, a church gave her a bus ticket. It took her to Tarpon Springs and then she apparently drove a car at least part way to Key Largo.

I dont think [it was] 15 minutes from the time I placed the call til we were on the police boat, she said.Blackburn said Griffith did well to lift Elkins, whos paralyzed from the chest down, onto his boat. He knew exactly what to do to get a paraplegic off that boat and got him off without any real problems. He was real quick to respond, Blackburn said. Griffith, a Florida state trooper of 24 years before joining the Key Colony force, said he ran the group into the Key Colony Beach Marina, where an ambulance met them. He said they were worked up after the incident but other than that, they were in pretty good shape.Blackburn said she and Elkins are back in Starr, S.C., but spend a good deal of time in the Keys.

DANGLERAdvocate: No ba r bed wi r eState officials say barbedwire fencing along the 18Mile Stretch connecting Key Largo to Florida City is essential to protect wildlife, but one of South Floridas most prominent animal advocates bristles at the idea. My common sense is telling me that barbed wire is too little, too late by the time the animal gets on the fence, said Ron Magill, communications director for Zoo Miami. Once the animal hits the barbed wire, hes just going to grab and pull and itll cut him more. The fencing was put up after the state Department of Transportations $330 million rebuild of the Stretch, which was completed in October 2011, and is designed to ward off endangered American crocodiles, alligators and Florida panthers. The Stretch also has 16 culverts below the road that allow animals to pass below.Through spokesman Brian Rick, DOTsays the fencing provided ... is 10 feet high with a 1-inch barbed wire outrigger. This fencing is designed to discourage panthers from attempting to jump the fence, as panthers have the capability of leaping 10 to 15 feet. This fencing design was implemented in conjunction with the Florida panther crossings on the I-75/Alligator Alley corridor...The agency went on to say that the fencing associated with the American crocodile box culverts is 6 feet high and contains no barbed wire outrigger. This fencing design was requested by state and federal crocodile and wildlife experts, since it is known that large reptiles such as alligators are capable of climbing short chain-link fences.That, as crazy as it sounds, is true, Magill said. Ive seen crocodiles climb 6-foot fences. Ive seen it with my own two eyes. As for the barbed wire along other sections of the Stretch, Magill doesnt get it. When [animals] climb a fence, the barbed wire is not going to stop them, he said. Theyll go over, anyway. So the barbed wire thing is pretty strange to me. He said animal preserves in Africa uses electrically charged fences to protect the wildlife. You just run a single wire along the top. They dont use barbed wire in game reserves specifically because it doesnt necessarily deter animals, Magill said. DOTsays a Florida panther was struck by an auto and killed on Card Sound Road in 2006 and another struck and killed on the southbound lane of the Stretch the following year. No mortality of Florida panthers has occurred on U.S. 1 since construction of the wildlife crossing and fencing system was completed as part of the U.S. 1 south project in 2011, DOTsaid.Meanwhile, barbed-wire fencing was recently erected on the old bridge at Pine Channel in the Lower Keys in anticipation of that span being rehabbed. The reason: Keep people off it, even though barbed wired hasnt been used in other old-bridge improvement projects throughout the Keys.But DOT says its there to protect animalsBy LARRY KAHNlkahn@keynoter.com1 8 -MILE STRETCH Cops: Gun pulled when vodka hiddenSuspect says she was just cleaning itKEY LARGO Photo by DAVID GOODHUEThe state Department of Transportation says the 18-Mile Stretch barbed wire (above) is needed to protect wildlife,but Zoo Miamis communications director says otherwise.

Once in the truck, [a second] male in the rear seat put a burlap ba g over [the victims] head. From there, the teen told police the trio robbed him of an iPod, camera, can opener, pen knife and $5 before he was kicked out of the truck at Hi gg s Beach and told to throw the burlap ba g into the ocean, which he said he did. Accordin g to the report, the robbers are a thin man in his early 20s who was wearin g a plastic mask, a muscular man in his mid-30s who also wore a mask, and medium-built man in his 40s wearin g latex g loves and a ski mask. Delvale said in his report that there are no witnesses or other evidence. The boys mother, contacted the next day, could not provide a cell number or any other form of identification for [the victim] or herself, and, told me the best way to contact her was by email.He tells cops he was dumped at Higgs BeachBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comCRIME FRONTTarpon, bones g et more protectionThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, at its Wednesday meetin g in Lakeland, approved a proposal to make tarpon and bonefish catchand-release-only fisheries. The proposal was adopted in reco g nition of the economic and fishin g value of bonefish and tarpon, which the FWC says g reatly exceed their value as food fish. The followin g chan g es will g o into effect Sept. 1 in state and federal waters off Florida:All harvest of tarpon will be eliminated, with the exception of the harvest or possession of a sin g le tarpon when in pursuit of an International Game Fish Association record and in conjunction with a tarpon ta g .Tarpon ta g s will be limited to one per person per year except for charterboat captains).Transport or shipment of tarpon becomes limited to one fish per person.One fish per vessel limit is created for tarpon.Gear used for tarpon will be limited to hook-andline only.People will be allowed to temporarily possess a tarpon for photo g raphy, measurement of len g th and g irth and scientific samplin g with the stipulation that tarpon more than 40 inches must remain in the water.Tarpon re g ulations will extend into federal waters.The bonefish tournament exemption permit is eliminated. This exemption allows tournament an g lers with the proper permit to temporarily possess bonefish for transport to a tournament scale.The commission also approved modifyin g the tarpon ta g pro g ram by eliminatin g current reportin g requirements and shiftin g the start and end date for when the tarpon ta g is valid from July throu g h June to a calendar year, January throu g h December.These rules will be chan g ed in FWC code and will g o into effect Sept. 1.Tournament rules change for bonefishFLORIDA KEYS FISHINGRosasco re-ups for two yearsMarathon Finance Director Peter Rosasco on Tuesday likely wasnt stressin g a City Council discussion about his contract for another year.Rosasco, who attends just about every council meetin g was at a conference in Orlando as City Mana g er Ro g er Hernstadt told the council that both the finance and information technolo g y contracts are set to expire on Sept. 30.He didnt miss much, as the council, with little discussion, renewed its contract with Bishop Rosasco and Co. for two years instead of one. It did the same with ITprovider EssentialNet Solutions.The council a g reed Rosasco has done an excellent job over the years, and approved a motion by Councilwoman Gin g er Snead to approve the two-year deal.If theyre considerin g the option of two years with the same price, we should jump on it, Snead said. Accordin g to city documents, Rosascos fiscal year 2012-13 contract was for $362,736 with a city option to renew for one year. EssentialNet Solutionscontract was for $40,440 with the same option. Rosasco told the Keynoter Thursday that hes pleased with the extension and is fine with stayin g put on price for two years because thin g s are still ti g ht with the economy. I really enjoy doin g what I do for the city and its been a pleasure and I feel like my staff and I have done a g ood job for the city, he said. EssentialNet provides three days of on-site ITsupport, plus remote services and telephone support 24 hours a day, monitorin g the citys network and respondin g to issues as they arise. Hernstadt told the council that he approached both Rosasco and Essentialnet about the possibility of a twoyear extension, and that both were receptive. Ne g otiatin g a deal hasnt always been so easy for Rosasco. The city put out a request for qualifications in 2010 for financial services, but Bishop Rosasco and Co. was the lone respondent of more than 25 firms to express interest. In 2007, then-Councilman Don Vasil recommended a feasibility study to see if finance functions should be done in-house. It never went anywhere. Rosasco has been the citys finance director since 2003, and served as interim mana g er from October 2009 throu g h January 2010, before Hernstadt was hired. EssentialNet Solutions has been the citys IT provider since 2001.EssentialNet also given 2 more yearsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONCity: Sta g nant pools a g rowin g problemIts no surprise people dont appreciate the si g ht of unattended swimmin g pools in their nei g hborsbackyards.Until Tuesday, complaints to the city of Marathon fell on deaf ears because its Code Compliance Department had no way of addressin g the issue.When we receive code complaints, we have no mechanism to act. Its mostly swimmin g pools, and sta g nant water in pools, Code Director Stacy Charlton told the City Council on Tuesday. Its usually a foreclosed issue. Any way we can address it, Im for. The council unanimously approved a law amendin g its code to allow city staff to enter a property that doesnt address a sta g nant water violation within 10 days to fix the problem. In part, its to keep mosquitoes from breedin g .Well just pay a pool person to g o in there and treat it or empty it, or whatever we need to do to make it safe, City Mana g er Ro g er Hernstadt told the Keynoter .Accordin g to the law, a violator has 10 days from receipt of the citation to file an appeal with the city; that would stave off city officials g oin g on the property until the appeal is ruled on. The city will provide an invoice for the cost to address the sta g nant pool or fountain within 30 days of doin g so. Councilman Dick Ramsay raised some concerns that the law isnt specific enou g h about conditions that would allow city staff on private property.If were lookin g at aesthetics, I still think we need some kind of criteria, he said. Councilwoman Gin g er Snead said its the citys duty to help maintain standards in this community, and Mayor Mike Cinque added that half-empty pools could be dan g erous for children or animals.

Five failures.Australian Chloe McCardel became the latest endurance athlete undone by the warm waters and fierce jellyfish of the Florida Straits, abandoning Wednesday night her attempt to become the first person to swim across nonstop without a shark cage.Her team said she stopped due to a severe debilitating jellyfish sting as she stroked through the dark waters. The 28-year-old from Melbourne lasted just 11 hours after swimming off from Havana. Her team said she was taken by one of her support vessels to Key West, where she was resting at a hotel early Thursday. It was the fifth failure involving three women who have tried to make the marathon swim the past three summers. Jellyfish stings and strong currents have been the main impediments.Diana Nyad, an endurance athlete who has failed three times trying to make the same crossing and says shed like to take another shot this summer, tweeted her commiseration.Bob Olin, skipper of the primary support boat the Sunluver said McCardel was stung several times. She got nailed all over her body back, legs and arms. Nailed multiple times, all at the same time, he told the Associated Press by satellite phone late Wednesday. He said the team tried to treat her wounds while she remained in the water, but had to take her on a boat because she was in excruciating pain.McCardel calls off crossing Cuba to KeysBy PAUL HAVENAssociated PressHUMAN ENDURANCEDeveloper pulls ecolodgeplansAn ambitious ecolodge project proposed for Islamorada has been shot down in the beginning stages of an anticipated long regulatory approval process. The villages panel that recommends or discourages development projects voted unanimously Monday not to advise the five-member Village Council to pass text amendments to Islamoradas comprehensive plan and land development regulations that would have paved the way for the venture. The five Local Planning Agency members were unfazed by a presentation made by Randall Gentry, a representative with EDSA, the Fort Lauderdale architectural firm hired to design the upscale 40to 70-unit hotel on the Old Highway around mile marker 83. Gentry described the 8-plus acre oceanfront site as an environmentally sensitive wooded lot that has been neglected for up to 90 years. Much of the native habitat is gone and overgrown with invasive plant species.The EDSAplan is to restore the hardwood hammock and wetlands, replant native species and build the hotel units in clusters throughout the property. The property also contains mangroves and a sandy beach. The restored hardwood hammock would immerse the guests into a natural surrounding that would make it difficult to notice traffic on U.S. 1.Well come in and fix it, and when were done it will look like it did before the  hurricane, Gentry said in an interview.Village planning staff agrees with the green concept of the plan but recommend EDSAbuild the project on a different, less wooded plot. But Gentry said that would defeat the purpose of the ecotourism theme of the project. He said the type of tourist that wants to go to an ecolodge would balk at the idea of staying at would amount to a manufactured attraction.You have to start out with a property that needs improvement, Gentry told the LPAmembers. But after the presentation, none were on board. Vice Chairwoman Amy Knowles said she feared greenlighting the project set a precedent and bit by bit we would lose our big pieces of undeveloped land. LPAmember Jim Mooney said he worried about the traffic the hotel would generate. The plan calls for up to 70 parking spaces. Its not clear where EDSAgoes from here. Gentry said in an e-mail that his firm is reviewing the available next steps.If the LPAapproved the project, it likely would have passed the Village Council. Mayor Ken Philipson and Vice Mayor Ted Blackburn said they supported the ecolodge.The land on which the hotel would be built is owned by Coral Springs investment firm Bonefish Holdings LLC. The property shot up in value the past year from $139,000 to almost $300,000, according to the Monroe County Property Appraisers Office.EDSAhas designed and built ecolodges across the globe in countries such as China, Kenya and Brazil but the Islamorada project would be the first in the United States.It would also bring both construction and hospitality industry jobs. Gentry said the hotel would employ from 15 to 30 people. The property would contain employee housing.He acknowledged the project would be expensive to build and when finished, staying there would not be cheap anywhere from $500 to $1,500 a night.For more on this story, go to www.KeysNet.com.By DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comISLAMORADA

I was amazed to see that my house and a neighbors were the only two houses that displayed an American flag. The Montessori school, Glynn Archer Elementary School, Congregation Bnai Zion, the telephone building and Centennial Bank had no flags on display.Come on, people of Key West, show your true colors. Be proud of our veterans and America. After all, this is still the greatest country in the world. Jules Cohen Key WestObama-appointed panel explores how to improve the process, holds first hearing in MiamiThe Presidential Commission on Election Administration will hold a public hearing June 28 in Miami to hear testimony from local, county and state election officials.Given Floridas checkered history at messing up big, national elections, it seems only appropriate the 10member commission has decided to hold its first meeting outside Washington at ground zero. It was Miami-Dade County where long lines forced some voters to wait up to five hours to cast ballots in the November presidential election. Part of the blame for that lies directly at the feet of the Miami-Dade Elections Department, which happens to be the only one in Florida with a hired supervisor not answerable to the voters.But the Florida Legislature shares the blame after passing restrictive rules in 2011 that reduced early voting days, stymied voter registration drives and turned away voters who had recently moved from their original precinct.The Commission of Election Administration has two co-chairmen, Robert F. Bauer, who served as President Obamas White House counsel from 2009 until 2011, and Ben Ginsberg, national counsel to the Bush-Cheney presidential campaigns in 2000 and 2004.Waiting in line and facing other unnecessary obstacles to voting is not a Republican or Democratic issue, Ginsberg said. This effort is aimed at assisting state and local election officials in their ongoing work to improve the voter experience under existing election laws.Some of the things the commission hopes to explore include the number, location and management of polling places. That became a huge hurdle in Miami-Dade, where a post-election review found county budget cuts limited the number of polling places and the department head admitted she had trouble recruiting poll workers. Recruitment and training of poll workers are among the topics the commission plans to investigate and hopefully that will be addressed at the Miami hearing, which begins at 9 a.m. at the federal courthouse, 300 NE 1st Ave., Miami.Technology is another area of concern, since the type of voting machines and how votes are counted and archived varies so widely by state, and even by jurisdiction.Here in the Keys, were lucky to have elections supervisors whove taken their mission seriously and introduced improved systems early in their tenure. Former Elections Supervisor Harry Sawyer introduced scan-machine technology more than 20 years ago at a time when other jurisdictions were still using old mechanical machines or, even worse, punch-card systems (remember the infamous hanging chads from Palm Beach County?). And now, with election veteran Joyce Griffin replacing Sawyer as supervisor, shes looking at the next generation of voting machines, which use touch-screen technology and even allow for write-in votes.In many ways, Florida is a poster child for elections gone awry. Hopefully, the Presidential Commission on Election Administration will hear what weve learned from our past mistakes, and take that learning to other states.For more information, visit www.supportthe voter.gov. GUEST COLUMNHospital pricing must be simpler, equitableRecently, the federal governments Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services released what U.S. hospitals charge for 100 of the most common inpatient procedures. The release of this data caused an uproar in the media because of the vast disparity in hospital charges for pills, procedures and operations.Baptist Health fully supports the move toward improving transparency in the health-care system and educating consumers about how to make the best choices for themselves and their families.The health-care payment system in the United States is incredibly complex, and the information published by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is not meaningful or easily understandable. Hospital charges do not dictate the amounts paid by Medicare or Medicaid and are often unrelated to amounts paid by commercial health insurers. Hospital charges vary because they reflect differences in patientsconditions, the hospitals mission, the patient population served and other factors. Ahospitals charge is similar to the price shown on windows of automobiles for sale. Rarely does anyone pay it. But many media reports about the data release contained the misleading concept that hospital charges equated to the prices paid for services. This is simply not accurate. The hospital charge or chargemaster is a concept similar to the list price used in many other industries. The Medicare laws require hospitals to maintain a chargemaster showing the list price of all chargeable items. The chargemaster at Baptist Health includes 65,000 items, whereas the hospital down the street may have only 20,000 items. This lack of standardization makes it nearly impossible to meaningfully compare the chargemaster from hospital to hospital. Lets continue with the automobile analogy: Consumers want to know the total cost of the vehicle, not the price list of its 3,000 parts. Medicare and Medicaid pay rates that have nothing to do with the chargemaster. The government unilaterally establishes the rates it pays each hospital. Commercial insurers negotiate their rates based on complex formulas and proprietary payment methodologies. While the release of the data did shine light on a broken hospital industry pricing system, it did not provide the public with sufficient information to make informed decisions. Patients usually want to know: What will it mean to my wallet? Payment rates for identical medical procedures are different among the nations 13,000 commercial insurers. Health insurers pay hospitals using a variety of methodologies, including per diems (an amount per day, depending on the type of care received), case rates (based on discharge diagnosis or procedure), carve-out pricing for implants or high-cost drugs, and other methods. Clearly, these contractual rates do not lend themselves to meaningful comparisons or give consumers the total cost of a hospital stay. We think the hospital pricing system must be replaced with a simpler, more equitable system, and were trying to set the example. Indeed, Baptist Health is one of the leading health-care systems in the nation providing meaningful information to prospective patients and payers. In 2001, Baptist Health started a Central Pricing Office that has been recognized as a national best practice. With a telephone call or online submission, patients can obtain the out-ofpocket estimate specific to their scheduled service, their insurer and their benefit structure. (It is now standard protocol to communicate these estimates to all patients for scheduled services.) The office also provides discounted prices to patients without insurance at average PPO prices. Low-income or indigent patients who meet Baptist Healths charity care guidelines receive their care for free or at a deep discount. At Baptist Health, we believe value is determined by quality and price. We are an established national leader in clinical best practices, patient safety, outcomes and patient satisfaction information the U.S. health-care system has made publicly available. We encourage consumers to consider these important factors when deciding where to go for health care. Rest assured, Baptist Health will continue to seek ways to make this information more transparent, accessible and understandable to consumers. Brian E. Keeley is president and chief executive officer of Baptist Health South Florida, which operates Mariners Hospital in Tavernier. KEELEYSchool handoff to be extendedDespite a May 30 public ceremony in which the Monroe County School District handed over the keys to Glynn Archer Elementary School to the city of Key West for use as a city hall, the two entities want to extend the June 28 official transfer date. City Attorney Shawn Smith will present that to the Key West City Commission when it meets on Tuesday beginning at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street.The conveyance agreement dictating the June 28 date was agreed to in April 2012. In a memo to city commissioners, Smith wrote that the School District continues to remove items. The city desires to have as much of the contents of the school removed as possible.He continues, While the parties could close the transaction as scheduled, the city would continue to let them remove articles but would expose itself to potential liability. The most prudent action ... is to extend. The planned renovation is projected to cost more than $20 million. In exchange for the White Street school, the district receives a sweetheart lease for city-owned space next to Gerald Adams Elementary on College Road to use for bus parking.Beach renourishAlso Tuesday, the commission will discuss spending $1,029,891 to renourish Rest and Smathers beaches on the Atlantic using more than 32 million pounds of sand. Of three bidders, Dickerson Florida Inc., based in Fort Pierce, submitted the low amount, beating out local company Charley Toppino & Sons Inc. and DN Higgins out of Naples. In 2011, the city replenished sand along 2,000 feet of Smathers Beach and plans to finish the remaining easternmost 1,000-foot stretch using 6,033 tons of sand, according to an executive summary prepared by Project Manager Janet Muccino. Rest Beach hasnt been renourished since 1996 and requires an estimated 10,350 tons of sand.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST OH,THE IRONY Photo by MARC ANDERSONOne wants you to give blood,the other tries to stop bugs from sucking your blood.This was a blood drive Tuesday at the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District office on 107th Street in Marathon.The nonprofit OneBlood blood bank was created last year when the Community Blood Centers of South Florida,Floridas Blood Centers and Florida Blood Services merged.

The worlds most famous purveyor of burgers and French fries has decided to offer a solution at its Marathon and Tavernier locations.On May 24 in Tavernier and June 1 in Marathon, owner-operator Cindy Lopez decided to make both McDonalds 24-hour operations. The Key West McDonalds on North Roosevelt Boulevard went 24 hours some time ago.The lobbies are open 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. like usual, but the drive-through is open all night.We felt that there was late-night sales opportunity in the area, so we decided to open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, Lopez said. According to Lopez, the restaurants are on full menu overnight, meaning they will serve items seen on the lunch and dinner menus. Breakfast typically begins at 5 a.m. and ends at 10:30 a.m.The Marathon McDonalds is at 5585 Overseas Highway next to the Winn-Dixie while the Tavernier restaurant is at 91400 Overseas Highway in the Tavernier Towne Center.McDonalds now open all night at Keys localesBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comRESTAURANTS BusinessThe HeraldmovesWith the snip of scissors, the Miami Herald Media Co.s new Doral headquarters west of downtown Miami officially opened Wednesday morning, capping a two-year transition from its longtime home on Biscayne Bay. The ribbon-cutting ceremony drew executives from Herald parent the McClatchy Co. and business leaders from South Florida, who gathered in a tent with many of the Miami Herald Media Co.s employees.The Keynoter and Reporter are sister newspapers of the Herald .The move comes at a time when traditional news organizations across the globe, including the Herald, have been struggling to develop new business models that meet shifting needs of both audience and advertisers. As digital channels have gained importance, consumers have come to expect minute-tominute news, delivered online and through mobile devices.We live in a world that has changing media preferences, said David Landsberg, president and publisher of the Miami Herald Media Co. These new preferences make for a very good business, as we port our content into the various channels that our readership desires.Through all newspaper and digital platforms, the Miami Herald Media Co. reaches 1.5 million readers weekly, capturing 52 percent of the core adult market from South Broward through Monroe County, according to Scarborough Research. The Herald also prints and delivers other publications for clients including the Wall Street Journal the New York Post and El Pais .The new, two-story, 160,000-square-foot headquarters, home to both the Miami Herald and el Nuevo Herald is designed with multimedia walls and an open continuous news desk designed for an evolving industry.

Laura! Experience Integrity Results Capture your aisle styleJune is second only to August as the most popular month for weddings. With all the different types of weddings, it can be hard to know what to wear. For most weddings, the invitation will indicate the type of attire the couple wants their guests to don by listing the dress code. If this is not listed, then your next guess as to the dress code is to look at where and what time of day the wedding will be held. If its an outdoor wedding, beach formal would be appropriate. An evening wedding indicates a more formal affair and should be attended with semi-formal to formal attire unless otherwise noted. Weddings are a celebratory event and that means what you wear should reflect that. I prefer to always err on the side of more formal, as its better to be overdressed than under. That said, you never want to upstage the bride. This means no attentiongetting styles, showing too much leg or too much decolletage, no loud colors and absolutely no white. Also, stay away from black dresses for early morning or afternoon outdoor weddings. If you do wear a black dress, make sure it doesnt look like youre attending a funeral. Pair it with a colorful heel and bag and bold jewelry. Weddings in the Keys tend to be beach weddings. This means your clothing will need to be sweat-resistant. Choose darker-colored, breathable fabrics made from natural fibers such as 100 percent cotton or linen. Also, choose shoes that are good for the beach. Try dressy sandals or a wedge heel and stay away from flipflops, as theyre noisy and too casual. For men, loafers or leather sandals are appropriate unless a dress code of semi-formal or formal has been noted. Following are recommendations of what to wear by dress code:Black tie, formal or white tie. This is the most formal of all wedding-dress codes and is typically used for nuptials beginning after 6 p.m.For men, black tie means dark-colored suits or tuxes with white shirts, a tie or bow tie and black dress shoes. White tie means men should wear a black evening tailcoat with a white bow tie and white collared shirt.For women, I suggest wearing a floor-length evening gown or knee-length cocktail dress in satin or silk, with perhaps some embellishments such as beading or sequins. Pair it with dramatic jewelry, heels and an updo for a sophisticated look. If youre not used to wearing heels, buy a pair with a small kitten heel and a pointy toe. This will elongate your legs and give the allusion that youre wearing heels.Semi-formal or dressy casual. This dress code is a step down from the more-formal dress codes but its better to err on the side of formality.For women, wear a nice cocktail dress or a fabulous skirt and blouse paired with heels. Wear lighter colors for a daytime wedding and darker colors for evening weddings.For men, this dress code still means a suit and tie or slacks and sport jacket but allows more room for adding color. Wear a gray suit with a colored shirt, a patterned tie and dress shoes.Beach formal. Beach formal means to dress as though youre going to a nice restaurant on a summer day. This dress code is also meant to let you know the nuptials will take place on the beach and therefore you will need to dress for the elements (sand, sun and water). Men should wear a summer suit, linen pants or khakis, and sandals or loafers. Acollared shirt is best but ties are not required. For women, a formal summer dress or long maxi dress with flats or wedges should be worn; hair and make-up can be kept more every-day. With outdoor weddings, the weather can fluctuate so bring a pashmina, wrap, jacket or sweater to stay warm on a windy day.Casual or informal chic translates into business casual, so no jeans and T-shirts. For women, this means a nice sun dress or blouse and skirt. You can wear more color to a casual wedding but stick with sandals. For casual weddings, men can wear nice shorts, leather sandals and a colored shirt such as a polo, linen dress or silk dress.Wedding dosDress up.

It was actually gorgeous. There was a little thunder in the morning but when we went out, it was blue as could be. Almost every kid caught some fish, so it was a great time, said Key Colony Police Chief Kris DiGiovanni, who helps organize the event.There were 31 kids this year, ages 6 to 14, aboard the Marathon Lady party boat. They left the dock at 8 a.m. and returned at 3 p.m., fishing along the reef about three miles off Key Colony Beach.The Marathon Lady provided 20 free fishing spots and the derby covered the rest. Afterward, the kids had an awards luncheon hosted by the Key Colony Inn.The big winners were Christopher May in the age 68 division, Michael Vanhuessin in the age 9-11 division and Frank Longo in the age 12-14 division. All the participants received T-shirts and door prizes at the lunch.Following May in the age 6-8 division was Billy Martin in second and Tatyana Hribar in third. Adrian Perdomo took second place in the age 9-11 group, while third place went to Reef Holdinga.

Does it occur to you that Fathers Day, which comes Sunday, gets short shrift compared to Mothers Day?Surveys say 83 percent of U.S. adults celebrate mom, but only 76 percent do it up for dad. We spend $140 on mama but just $106 on papa, scolds the National Federation of Retailers.If this fills you with unbearable guilt, if you agonize over the age-old question, What do men really want?, you might find relief in the tired-but-true axiom: The way to a mans heart is through his stomach. If you love your daddy, shoo him away from the backyard grill, plop him in an Adirondack chair and cook him a meal. Tell him he can watch, but cant offer any unneeded male advice. Here are some things he might like:Surprise him with your cutting-edge drinks hipness and hand him a bottle of Angry Orchard Elderflower Hard Cider crisp and dry, with vivid floral, almost lavender-like aromas and flavors, for about $9 a six-pack.Grill him a monster, well-marbled rib-eye steak and serve a 2009 Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile, redolent with cassis and mocha flavors and big, ripe tannins for $125.Or just char $5 worth of supermarket hamburger and serve it with a 2011 Casillero del Diablo Malbec, also from Chile, with flavors of black cherries and milk chocolate, for $12.Google beer can chicken by Miami barbecue author Steven Raichlen. Place an open can of beer on the grill and sit a whole chicken down on it vertically, using the beer can and the chickens two drumsticks to form a supporting triangle. The beer steams the chicken to perfection. With it, serve Samuel Adamsnew Little White Rye beer, light and crisp, with unexpected fennel flavors, at about $15 per 12-pack.Keep things simple by making him my short-cut short ribs.Simmer a pound or so of short ribs for an hour in red wine and broth, slather them with your favorite bottled barbecue sauce and char them on the grill. Serve with the 2010 Clos LaChance Zinfandel, North Coast, hearty and rich and spicy, with red raspberry flavors, for $15.Simmer a dozen bratwursts (find jalapeno brats if you can) in beer and onions for 10 minutes, then put some mean-looking grill marks on them and serve them on buns with Dijon mustard and sauerkraut. Boil down the leftover beer and onions and serve it on the side. Serve with Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, with its lemon-scented hops and nice dry finish, at about $9 per six-pack.Show your exotic side and serve him grilled baby octopus (no kidding; many supermarkets carry them for $3 or $4 a pound in the fish section).Marinate in olive oil, lemon, garlic and lime, skewer and char briefly on both sides. Serve the 2011 Francis Coppola Diamond Collection Sauvignon Blanc, California, with tart flavors of white grapefruit and grass, at $16.For dessert, stay at your deckside cooking post and stay exotic, peel and slice a whole pineapple into half-inch slices and grill until heated through and lightly charred.Serve hot, topped with expensive vanilla bean ice cream and serve with an exotic Thai drink called Siam Dew. Mix a jigger of smooth and potent Phraya Deep Matured Gold Rum from Thailand (about $39), which has tropical flavors from coconut to pineapple, plain yogurt, sugar and cumin and shake over ice.

Just go to www.elcmdm.org .All kids who are age 4 by Sept. 1 and Florida residents can register for the free program. Overall in the two counties, about 23,000 families participate, the Early Learning Coalition says.It used to be that parents would have to make appointments at one of three Keys sites, meaning having to be away from work. Now, parents and care-givers no longer have to wait in line or take time off to enroll their children.Registration can take place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The process is as simple as creating a user name and password on the Early Learning Coalitions website; entering the childs information; electronically submitting proof of Florida residency and the childs birth certificate; and printing out the certificate of eligibility. The parent or care-giver can then enroll the child in the child-care facility of his or her choice. The VPK online system is just one more tool that we are using to make sure that all 4-year-olds participate in the VPK program, said Evelio Torres, president and chief executive officer of the Early Learning Coalition.The coalition is one of 31 such coalitions in the state and serves more than 50,000 children from birth to age 5. Programs consist of voluntary prekindergarten, school readiness, child-care resource and referral services and assessment, among other things.Since its founding in 2000, it has served more than 300,000 children in Monroe and Miami-Dade.

We know you had this marked on your calendar: Today is World Juggling Day and the Ripleys Key West Odditorium is celebrating and wants you to join in the fun.Ripleys is partnering with the International Jugglers Association to celebrate the ancient art by showcasing local jugglers starting at 1 p.m. at Ripleys, 108 Duval St.All jugglers, regardless of skill level, are invited to participate. Just bring your balls, clubs, rings or whatever you juggle and join in. Its also an opportunity for people to try juggling for the first time. Jugglers recruited by the International Jugglers Association will be on hand to help those who have always wanted to juggle but never had the chance.Amateur jugglers can compete for a $100 prize, free entry to the museum and two VIPpasses for a future visit the person who can juggle the longest wins. The contest starts at 2 p.m. Theres no need to pre-register.Cant juggle? How about working a hula hoop? From 1 to 3 p.m., anyone who can hula hoop for one minute gets a free ticket to the museum.Mexican cuisine has been popular for a long time, but my recent travels have persuaded me that fish tacos are big now in a way they never were before.Naturally, perhaps, they are easiest to find in regions with a strong Hispanic influence particularly Florida, California and Texas but Ive also been bumping into them in Chicago and New York. Soon enough, they should be just about as ubiquitous as falafel. Its a happy thing.They already can be found on numerous Florida Keys restaurant menus. Folks in Mexicos coastal cities, where fresh fish and tacos are both plentiful, have been enjoying fish tacos since before the arrival of the first Europeans. But if any one individual can take credit for the north-of-the-border spread of this culinary delight, it is Ralph Rubio. On spring break from his studies at San Diego State University in 1973, Rubio flipped for the fish tacos in San Felipe, a port town on the Baja California peninsula. Ten years later, back in San Diego, he opened Rubios Baja Grill, which specialized in fish tacos. Today, there are hundreds of Rubios locations. Traditional fish tacos consist of battered fish topped with shredded cabbage, a drizzle of citrus mayo, all wrapped in a corn tortilla. But theres plenty of room for variation. These days the fish might be grilled rather than battered and fried. Sometimes its served on flour tortillas, sometimes on corn tortillas. Its almost always topped with some kind of creamy sauce, as well as with shredded cabbage and/or avocado. My version is light on calories but heavy on flavor. The fish is lightly floured and sauteed rather than deepfried. The citrus mayonnaise sauce went bye-bye in favor of a puree of avocado and buttermilk. The avocado contains healthy fat, and the buttermilk is as lean as skim milk, but much tastier. Topping it off is shredded cabbage, carrots and radishes tossed with vinegar, salt and a pinch of sugar.Fans of chilies will love the sliced jalapeno garnish. I think the cilantro is key, too, but if you were born with the anticilantro gene (a real thing!), you can swap in basil instead.Finally, those of you who worry that corn tortillas are high in calories can relax; two 6-inch corn tortillas, softened up and toasted without oil in a dry skillet, weigh in at just 80 calories.Anote about the fish: I used tilapia because it is sustainable, affordable and widely available all year. But substitute any fish you like. Just keep in mind that a thinner fish will take less time to cook.What you need:One large Hass avocado, peeled, pitted and cut into eighths.Athird of a cup buttermilk.Two cloves garlic, minced, divided.Zest and juice of one lime.Kosher salt and ground black pepper, to taste.Three cups shredded Napa cabbage.Acup and a half coarsely grated carrot.One cup coarsely grated radishes.Quarter cup white wine or cider vinegar.Quarter teaspoon sugar, or to taste.Hot sauce, to taste.One pound fish fillets cut into eight equal pieces.Whole-wheat flour, for coating the fish.Three tablespoons vegetable oil.Eight 6-inch corn tortillas.Sliced fresh jalapeno peppers, to serve.Chopped fresh cilantro, to serve. Heat your oven to 200 degrees. In a food processor, combine the avocado, buttermilk, one clove of garlic, lime juice and salt and pepper. Puree until smooth, then set aside.In a medium bowl, combine the cabbage, remaining garlic, carrot, radishes, vinegar, sugar, lime zest and hot sauce. Season with salt and pepper and toss well. Set aside.Heat a heavy skillet (such as cast-iron or stainless steel, but not nonstick) over medium heat. One at a time, place the tortillas in the skillet and toast for about 30 seconds per side. As the tortillas are toasted, stack them on a sheet of foil. Wrap the foil around the tortillas, then place them in the over to keep warm. Alternatively, the tortillas can be held with tongs and toasted directly over a gas burner for a few seconds per side. In a pie plate or other wide, shallow bowl, combine about one cup of flour with one tablespoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper. One at a time, dredge each piece of fish through the flour until coated evenly. Shake off any excess. In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high, heat about one tablespoon of the oil over medium-high. Add half of the fish to the pan and cook, turning once, until golden and cooked through, about three minutes a side. Transfer to an oven-safe plate and set in the oven to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining oil and fish. To serve, top each tortilla with a bit of the avocado puree, then a piece of fish. Drain the cabbage mixture, then mound some of that over each portion. Serve with jalapeno slices and cilantro on the side. Start to finish: 40 minutes. Servings: Four.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4B Saturday,June 15,2013 Military history surrounds Key West in the form of four classic redbrick forts. Nearly 150 years ago they loomed above the horizon to protect the United Statesstrategic southernmost shore. Today, open as historic sites, gardens or museums, they offer visitors a fascinating glimpse of the islands past. Fort Zachary Taylor, on the islands west side; East Martello Tower and West Martello Tower, on the south shore, and Fort Jefferson, which is located 68 miles west of Key West in the Dry Tortugas National Park make up this unique mix of historic brick-walled forts.Fort Jefferson is believed to be the largest masonry structure in the Western Hemisphere. Fort Taylor, named for the countrys 12th president, was built between 1845 and 1866. Controlled by the Union during the Civil War, the fort was the home base for a successful blockade of Confederate ships that some historians say shortened the conflict by a full year. The fort also was used during the SpanishAmerican War, World War I and World War II. Once referred to as Fort Forgotten, the structure was rediscovered and excavated thanks to a grass-roots restoration effort led by Key West resident Howard England. The centerpiece of a 56-acre state park, today the fort is a National Historic Landmark believed to hold the largest collection of Civil War cannons in the nation. It also is the site of the popular Civil War Heritage Days event, held in February. Highlights include re-enactments of historic military maneuvers, the annual Haunting of Fort Taylor at Halloween, a yearly gathering of pirate re-enactors and an annual Sculpture Key West outdoor exhibition of large-scale sculptures. The acreage surrounding the fort includes a shaded picnic area and a 1,000foot beach on the Atlantic Ocean that features excellent offshore snorkeling and sunset views. In addition, guided tours of the fort are offered daily.

The design of the towers is reminiscent of the castle-like and nearly impregnable coastal Martello watchtowers in Italy. Each had a low outer wall encircling a waterless moat and tall tower.Standing only a few miles apart, the forts that were never completed today are a vital part of Key West life. East Martello Tower, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is one of the best-preserved Civil War-era batteries in the United States. It houses Fort East Martello Museum and Gardens, operated by the Key West Art and Historical Society. The museum features regional historic exhibits and archives, photographic displays of old Key West, military memorabilia and folk art collections. Hundreds of local artifacts, including a supposedly haunted doll named Robert, are exhibited in 13 vaulted rooms with brick arches. Visitors can climb the 47step winding staircase to the top of the Citadel, the forts central tower, for a sweeping view of the island and surrounding ocean. For information, call 305-296-3913 or visit www.kwahs.com/martello.htm West Martello Tower, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has been the home of the Key West Garden Club and Joe Allen Garden Center for more than 50 years. While many of the forts brick arches have been restored, much of the structure remains a picturesque ruin overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.The grounds at West Martello contain a beautiful garden planted and maintained by the garden club, featuring rare palm trees, orchids, bromeliads, native and indigenous plants. The garden club presents periodic plant shows that draw large crowds. The gardens are open seven days a week with no admission charge. For information, call 305-294-3210 or visit www.keywestgardenclub.com .Fort Jefferson, called the Gibraltar of the Gulf, stands on Garden Key among a cluster of seven minuscule coral and sand islands called the Dry Tortugas. The forts pristine surroundings in the Gulf of Mexico are home to rare migratory birds and a wealth of marine life. Fort Jeffersons construction began in 1846 after American leaders realized that fortifying the Tortugas was an essential step in controlling navigation in the Gulf of Mexico. Construction on the gigantic fort, whose walls are 8 feet thick and 50 feet high, continued for 30 years, but was never completed. During the Civil War, Fort Jefferson served as a Union military prison for captured deserters and housed four men convicted of complicity in Abraham Lincolns assassination including Dr. Samuel Mudd, the Maryland physician who set the broken leg of assassin John Wilkes Booth. By the 1880s, the Army had abandoned Fort Jefferson and in 1908 the area became a wildlife refuge. Proclaimed Fort Jefferson National Monument in 1935, it was designated Dry Tortugas National Park in 1992 to protect its natural and historic wonders. Today, visitors can journey to Fort Jefferson by seaplane, ferry or private vessel. Most take the complimentary guided tour of the fort, where they can step inside Dr. Mudds cell and feel the prison chill, peer through the massive structures gun casements and observe the vista of sea, sky and sandy islands from the open third level.

Search on for1st Web pageFor the European physicists who created the World Wide Web, preserving its history is as elusive as unlocking the mysteries of how the universe began.The scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, known by its French acronym CERN, are searching for the first Web page. It was at CERN that Tim Berners-Lee invented the Web in 1990 as an unsanctioned project, using a NeXTcomputer that Apple co-founder Steve Jobs designed in the late 1980s during his 12-year exile from the company.Dan Noyes oversees CERNs website and has taken on the project to uncover the worlds first Web page. He says that no matter how much data they sort through, researchers may never make a clear-cut discovery of the original web page because of the nature of how data is shared. The concept of the earliest Web page is kind of strange, Noyes said. Its not like a book. Abook exists through time. Data gets overwritten and looped around. To some extent, it is futile.In April, CERN restored a 1992 copy of the first-ever website that Berners-Lee created to arrange CERN-related information. It was the earliest copy CERN could find at the time, and Noyes promised then to keep looking.After National Public Radio did a story on the search, a professor at the University of North CarolinaChapel Hill came forward with a 1991 version.Paul Jones met BernersLee during the British scientists visit to the U.S. for a conference in 1991, just a year after Berners-Lee invented the Web. Jones said Berners-Lee shared the page with the professor, who has transferred it from server to server through the years. Aversion remains on the Internet today at an archive Jones runs.The page Jones received from Berners-Lee is locked in JonesNeXTcomputer, behind a password that has long been forgotten. Forensic computer specialists are trying to extract the information to check time stamps and preserve the original coding used to generate the page. The Web page preserved by Jones is both familiar and quaint. There are no flashy graphics or video clips. Instead, it is a page of text on a white background with 19 hyperlinks. Some of the links, such as ones leading to information about CERN, have been updated and still work. On the other hand, a link to the phone numbers for CERN staffers is dead.Noyes said hell keep searching for earlier versions of the page. Noyes said his project still has to sort through plenty of old disks and other data submitted following NPRs story. He suspects there will be a couple of pages to pop up that were created months before the version Jones has.The Internet itself dates back to 1969, when computer scientists gathered in a lab at the University of California, Los Angeles to exchange data between two bulky computers. In the early days, the Internet had e-mail, message boards known as Usenet and online communities such as The WELL.1991 version might be the earliest oneBy JEFFREY COLLINSAssociated PressTECHNOLOGY 11050 Overseas Hwy., Marathon, FL33050 Rick Se r vai sREALTOR(305) 731-5010www.realestatemarathonfl.com firstname.lastname@example.orgOpen 7 Days AWeekOPENHOUSESaturday,June 15th Noon to 3 PM 18 Ibis Lane Marathon Come visit our online photo galleries and submit your own at www.KeysNet.com/Photos
