Typically used for law enforcement, the district is floating the idea of using an unmanned autonomous vehicle a drone to help spot shallow-water pools where mosquitoes breed up and down the Keys. District Director Michael Doyle said hes invited several government agencies to a scheduled test flight for the UAVat its Marathon office on 107th Street at 10 a.m. Aug. 26. The 2.2-pound, roughly 2.5-foot-long device, which Doyle said resembles a hawk in flight, would use infrared cameras to spot the shallow pools and allow the district to more quickly treat those areas with larvicide. It costs roughly $80,000 including a comprehensive insurance policy. According to the Condor Aerial website, the batterypowered drones are capable of up to 90 minutes of flight at one time. They can operate in up to 40 mph winds, typically at altitudes from 10 to 150 feet. Its very much designed for law enforcement when you watch the video, but it has a short-wave infrared camera we may be able to use to detect shallow water. It may or may not; thats what we have to find out, he said. The idea for the unmanned drone came out of the districts staff-driven sustainability summit in March. The two-day summit was to give staff and invited members of the public a chance to brainstorm ways the district could operate smoother. Weve got about five or six different projects were doing to find out where water is quickly to save us time treating with the larvicide, Doyle said. Those include water sensors and cameras on offshore islands, many of which are fertile mosquito breeding grounds. If we can find the water,Test flights are scheduled late AugustBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROL Photo courtesy CONDOR AERIALThe Florida Keys Mosquito Control District is considering using unmanned autonomous vehicles,or drones,to spot shallow-water pools where mosquitoes breed up and down the Keys. See Drones,4A LeBaron finds out fate MondayConvicted killer Jonathan LeBaron finds out Monday if he gets the death penalty or is spared and receives a sentence of life in prison. LeBaron, 36, convicted on May 1 of first-degree murder in the Feb. 10, 2009, beating death of Richard Gardner on Stock Island, is scheduled for sentencing at 11:30 a.m. Monday before Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones at the Freeman Justice Center in Key West. Gardner, 57, was beaten to death aboard his boat Flo To Me at the Oceanside Marina. On May 10 this year, a jury voted 11-1 for the death penalty for LeBaron. That will weigh heavily on Jonesdecision. Prosecutors built their case around testimony from Kristen Whitmore, 44, who pleaded guilty to second-degree murder for her role in the slaying. Shes serving 18 years in prison. Shes being held in the Lowell Reception Center, a medium-security prison in Gainesville. Testimony, court documents and police reports indicate Gardner, a resident of Cape Coral, had allowed Whitmore to stay on his boat and that she led LeBaron to the vessel to lay in wait and rob Gardner. Instead, LeBaron beat and stabbed Gardner to death and stole his car. The couple was arrested in Midvale, Utah, 12 days after the killing following an anonymous tip to police. If hes sentenced to death, LeBaron would be the fifth person sent to Death Row for a crime committed in Monroe County (there are three there now). Overall, Floridas Death Row has 404 inmates. Since Florida reinstated the death penalty in 1976, there have been 78 executions. Just one of the condemned, Marion Francis, was convicted of a capital crime in Monroe County. Francis, then 46, was executed by electrocution on June 25, 1991. He was convicted in the June 17, 1975, murder of Titus Walters, a Key West drug informant. Francis reportedly shot him dead after injecting him with battery acid and Drano. When his body was found in a bathtub, Waltershands were bound and his mouth taped shut.Convicted killer could get death in Gardner slayingIN THE COURTS Keynoter Staff LeBARONNot-guilty plea in fire that burned manARaleigh, N.C., man accused of setting a truck on fire with a Homestead man inside it after a latenight argument at JJs Doghouse bar in Marathon last month pleaded not guilty to attempted seconddegree murder and arson on Thursday. Stuart Collins, 28, originally faced five charges, but was arraigned by acting Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker on three counts: Attempted second-degree murder, second-degree arson and criminal mischief. Dropped were felony counts of conspiring to commit criminal acts and arson causing great bodily harm or permanent damage. We pre-filed our notice and its set for trial in early October, defense attorney Hal Schuhmacher said. Schuhmacher said he met with Collins at the Stock Island jail after the arraignment; Collins did not appear in court. Hes being held on $1.05 million bond. According to the Sheriffs Office, a little after 3 a.m. July 12, Collins and Jose Gonzales, 52, argued inside the bar over a girl before Gonzales left to rest inside his Florida Paving and Trucking truck. It was parked just three feet from the bars side door on 107th Street. Surveillance video from outside the bar clearly shows Collins making several attempts to ignite the truck before walking away for a short time. He came back later and that time lit the truck on fire with a Bic lighter. Shortly thereafter, the truck explodes into a fireball with Gonzales inside, Detective Manny Cuervo wrote in his report. He got out of the truck and was on fire and had to be extinguished by fire rescue and deputies on scene. Collins was found later that morning hiding under a building. Gonzales sustained burns on 61 percent of his body. Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said he remains in critical but stable condition at Ryder Trauma Center in Miami, undergoing extensive treatment. Collins has a pretrial hearing set for 1:30 p.m. Sept. 30 at the Marathon courthouse. His trial is scheduled for Oct. 14.Some charges against Collins are dismissedBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comIN THE COURTS COLLINS

The permit would allow the Dan A. Hughes Petroleum Geological Co. of Texas to draw up to 60 million gallons of water a year from an aquifer for drilling that would occur near the Golden Gate community and the boundary of the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge. The News-Press reported that the company also needs a drilling permit from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, with the agency facing a Sept. 30 deadline for a decision. Opponents are trying to stop the drilling proposal and plan to march Aug. 31 to Gov. Rick Scotts Naples home, the newspaper reported. At the top of the residentsworry list is the fear of fracking, formally called hydraulic fracturing, which involves injecting a well with a cocktail of water, chemicals and sand at high pressure to fracture rock and access previously untapped reserves of oil and gas, the newspaper said. News Service of Florida Great white sightings increase Talk around the docks at some Islamorada marinas is going beyond the mahi, snapper and tuna bight offshore. Instead, captains are sharing stories of the great white sharks theyve spotted recently while taking their charters on the hunt for the usual variety of fish common to the Keys. Several of the large predators, which are more commonly found in colder waters off areas like northern California, New England, Australia and South Africa, were seen by Islamorada captains and mates last week. Capt. Brian Cone of the Contagious charter boat out of Robbies Marina on Lower Matecumbe Key said he saw a great white estimated to be 16 feet long and anywhere from 1,500 to 2,000 pounds. At one point, he swam even with the back of my boat, which is 11 feet wide, and he was longer than it is wide, said Cone, who helms a 33-foot World Cat center-console catamaran. Cone, 39, said he was fishing for amberjack about two miles outside the 409 Hump in about 800 feet of water when he saw the shark. Sharks are very common in waters off both sides of the Keys, but the usual species include bulls, lemons, tigers, nurse sharks, black tips, hammerheads and bonnetheads. Farther offshore, makos also regularly patrol the depths for prey. But great whites are not a species known to frequent the Keys. This year, however, there have been several sightings reported and photographed. Based on the several anecdotal reports recently, [theyre] apparently not so rare now, said Mahmood Shivji, director of the Guy Harvey Institute at Nova Southeastern University. But this appears to be a new occurrence because documented sightings of white sharks in the Keys, although they have been seen occasionally in the past, were very uncommon. In July, a charter boat crew spotted what they estimated to be a 10to 12foot great white about 6 miles off Key West while fishing for yellowtail snapper. Agroup of Coral Shores High School students in May got close enough to almost tag a 10-footer while on a University of Miami research expedition off Duck Key. Earlier that month, Fort Lauderdale photographer Guillame Bauch, 25, took an underwater photograph of a 10to 12-foot great white while snorkeling off Marathon. Amonth earlier, Reid Eisenhaure, 33, a diver from Massachusetts, shot a photo of the belly side of a great white while he was ascending from a dive on the wreck of the Eagle off Lower Matecumbe Key. Neil Hammerschlag, director of the University of Miamis R.J. Dunlap Marine Conservation Program, said based solely on anecdotal information, it is hard to determine if there is a higher frequency of shark visits in southeast Florida and Keys. He said seeing great whites in the summertime off the Keys is unusual, but not so much in the winter and spring, when the water is cooler. We hypothesize the sharks are occasionally passing through to feed on big fishes, like amberjacks, spawning on the reefs and wrecks, Hammerschlag said in an e-mail. Cone, who has been fishing off the Keys for 30 years, is not surprised by the increase in great white sightings. He thinks they were probably always around, but they usually stay in the deeper, cooler water. He says people are probably happening upon them when the sharks swim closer to the surface for food. More people are going to see them, said Cone. When you go 20 to 30 feet below the water, there is a significant difference in temperature. Its a lot cooler. Shivji said great whites are highly migratory, and there is absolutely no evidence the sharks seen off the Keys are engaged in any sort of reproductive behavior or here to stay. Also, the types of marinemammal prey mature great whites hunt are not found off the Keys. It is possible that the white sharks being seen are different individuals just passing through the Keys on their way somewhere else, Shivji said.

Rather than insist, as it has for years, that the Middle Keys airfields runway be moved 40 feet to the north, the Federal Aviation Administration is now willing to go along with Monroe Countys preferred do nothing approach. FAAAirports District Office Manager Bart Vernace confirmed that in an Aug. 6 letter to Monroe County Airports Director Peter Horton. The FAAmandated the airport study in 2003 to determine the impact of moving the runway 40 feet to the north in keeping with federal safety regulations implemented in 1991. The regulations concern the 240-foot distance required between the centerlines of the runway and parallel taxiway at an airport that size. The distance at Marathon is 200 feet, but theres been a longstanding waiver to continue operations. We got a call from the FAA. They said, We know where youre going with this; weve reviewed the draft [assessment],and they sent us a letter saying weve got some choices, Horton said. Those choices were to agree to move the runway, reject the FAAs preferred alternative to move it, propose an alternative not previously presented, or to take no action to address the purpose and need. In exchange for allowing the airport to remain as is, the FAAis requiring the county to submit to a modification of design standards controlling taxiway use during takeoffs and landings of airplanes with more than a 79-foot wingspan. Airport Manager Don DeGraw said an aircraft that size has landed once in his roughly two months on the job. Thats not going to be an onerous requirement at all, Horton added. The county, which owns the airport, completed the study last month and sent it to the FAAfor review. It was done by county consultant URS Corp., a California-based engineering and construction firm. Plans were also in the works for a public hearing in Marathon to gather input on the controversial potential move, estimated over the years to cost anywhere from $6 million to $22 million. That wont be necessary now. We will not require the county to circulate the [assessment] for public review or hold a public meeting. The [assessment] process would conclude with our concurrence with the countys choice of no action, Vernace wrote. Local officials have long argued moving the runway is unnecessary and that it would be difficult to obtain permits for it because it would require cutting out 20 percent of the rare hardwood hammock along Aviation Boulevard. That road runs parallel to the airport and the hammock serves as a noise buffer for a large residential area. Horton said the County Commission is slated to discuss Vernaces letter at its monthly meeting on Aug. 21. Im asking they accept the no-action alternative, he said. The Aug. 21 meeting is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. at the Murray E.

Parcels A& B Katherine St.Summerland Key Coa s tal-ba rr ie r fixc r iticizedAmove to scale back Monroe County development rules for lands designated under the federal Coastal Barrier Resources System doesnt go far enough for some No Name Key homeowners. At a July 31 meeting of the Monroe County Planning Commission, No Name residents Beth Ramsay Vickrey and Kathy Brown objected to a draft law that still discourages spending county or state money on areas in the federal Coastal Barrier Resources System, like No Name or parts of North Key Largo. Youre putting something on the books that creates the same legal situation we just got out of, Vickrey said in public comments. She called the revision unenforceable and ridiculous. County staff recommended a resolution supporting the rewritten amendment to the countys comprehensive land-use plan go forward as submitted. The Planning Commission agreed on a 40 vote with little discussion. Currently, county law prohibit[s] the extension of utilities to or through areas designated as units of the Coastal Barrier Resources System generally natural or minimally developed coastlines. Monroe County contested the recent extension of electric power lines to No Name Key but dropped the case when it became evident that court rulings were favoring the expansion. Running sewer pipes to some residential areas on North Key Largo also seemed to run afoul on the countys coastal-barrier prohibition. After hearing from staff and consultants that most undeveloped Monroe County land in coastal-barrier areas are classified as Tier 1, county commissioners this spring agreed to move toward softening the prohibition language in county rules. Tier 1 lands are natural areas where getting county building permits is very difficult.DEVELOPMENTPa n el a s ked to r e s ume cha r te r dolphi n s ale sCharterboat crews should be allowed to resume selling part of their dolphin catches, South Atlantic Fishery Management Council members heard at a Thursday hearing in Key Largo. For-hire crews are traditional suppliers of dolphin fish to local restaurants and wholesalers, said Bill Kelly, executive director of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association. For decades, many South Florida and Keys charterboat crews primarily mates earned extra money by selling dolphin caught under recreational bag limits and not kept by their boats customers. But in April 2012, the South Atlantic Council banned the practice as part of its new Annual Catch Limit rules. With no significant commercial dolphin fishery in the Keys, that deprives restaurants of the freshest fish available, Kelly said. The United States has the safest seafood in the world, Kelly said. Wed rather see properly licensed [charter crews] sell dolphin than increased imports or backdoor sales. Under the current law, some fishing tournaments can sell caught dolphin as part of their financial remuneration, Kelly said. To allow that while depriving other properly licensed [fishermen] is a travesty. Tom Tharp, a Key Largo recreational angler, said customers are essentially deprived of the freshest fish at Keys restaurants. They have to give [extra fish] away, throw em away or sell them under the table, he said. Were eating imported fish from other places. That financially harms both the crews and restaurants, he contended. That money means a lot to my crews, Miami charter captain Ray Rosher said at a separate fisheries meeting July 30 in Key Largo. Were allowed to kill the fish but we have to give them away. Thats discriminatory and not wise for our region. South Atlantic Council Chairman David Cupka acknowledged that sales of dolphin from charterboat trips had been a longstanding practice in this part of the world. Charter customers get excited while theyre catching their 10-fish limit of dolphin, Cupka said, but then they find it hard to take the fish back home. The other side of the argument is that you either allow recreational sales or you dont, Cupka said. When the rule was passed, advocates said the ban on charter sales was needed to distinguish between commercial and recreational harvests, which have differing regulations and limits. Unless theres a problem with the stock, Id like to see it go back to way it was, Tharp said. Charterboat sales of dolphin were not on the table Thursday, but it issue came up under a proposal to raise the annual catch limits of boat recreational and commercial dolphin.A ban went into effect in April 2012COMMERCIAL FISHINGBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org

Weve had three days with no sign of her, so she may have moved away, Lindsay Hord said with a touch of dubious optimism. Maybe she got the message. But as the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission biologist in charge of nuisance crocodiles and alligators, Hord knows he probably has not seen the last of Crocodolly. Crocodolly, an 8-year-old female, has roamed the bayside of north Plantation Key at least since 2010. She has been captured in the Indian Waterways subdivision three times and released deep into Florida Bay. Yet she always comes back, often to the same canalside residence. She was back again early this week. In June 2012, Crocodolly dug a nest in the area but apparently did not lay any eggs. July and August are when crocodile eggs typically hatch, Hord said, so she may have returned recently to seek her nonexistent offspring. Identified by the blue No. 5 tag on her tail, Crocodolly certainty has become habituated to people to some degree, Hord said. But she doesnt approach people. We havent seen anything to indicate that crocodile poses a danger. She moves away when we approach her. If Crocodolly keeps growing and coming ashore in yards, she may have to be moved to a wildlife facility. Once she gets to nine feet, thats pretty much her last strike, Hord said. He noted that many Tavernier residents who regularly see Crocodolly pass through their canal enjoy sharing the space with a highly protected species that nearly went extinct by the late 1970s. One resident posted a Facebook page for Crocodolly that now has more than 400 friends. There is a lot of acceptance from a lot of people in the Keys, Hord said. Its no big shock to them that theres a crocodile. Theyve been there forever. Unlike South American or African crocodiles, the reclusive American crocodile has never been implicated in an aggressive attack on a human. They can, however, snatch pets that roam too close. Usually when we see a spike in [crocodile] reports, its because something has been in the news, Hord said. People are more active around the water in the summer so theres an increase in sightings. He noted, Its usually perception more than anything else. Its nothing to do with how many crocodiles there are. Theyve always been here. Weekenders account for a large percentage of reports from the Keys, Hord said. Camping-lot owners at Outdoor Resorts of Long Key recently have spotted a crocodile in their canal systems. An Aug. 6 notice went out to owners to avoid discarding fish in the canal, and keep watch on pets and children near the water. The FWC continues to stress that South Florida residents should try to co-exist with native species including toothy reptiles. Theres no point getting worked up over a crocodile, Hord said. Be aware of it but keep it in perspective. Dont overreact.But the reptile likely hasnt left forever Photo by BOB CARETrapper Chad Hardwick gets ready to take Crocodolly out to Florida Bay during a previous relocation.The reptile always goes back to the Indian Waterways area.Cha r ge upg r aded to ma ns laughte rProsecutors have escalated the criminal charges against Charles Miller in the beating death of a homeless Stock Island man last month and are considering lodging a murder count. Miller, who is also a homeless Stock Island man who turns 43 on Aug. 17, allegedly beat up Jesus Rodriguez, 45, on July 7. On July 14, Rodriguez died from his injuries at Ryder Trauma Center in Miami. The Monroe County State Attorneys Office initially charged Miller with aggravated battery but on Monday upgraded that to felony manslaughter. Assistant State Attorney Val Winter said its at a homicide level now but depending on how the case proceeds, things may change. He and co-counsel Assistant State Attorney Carla Matinata filed the manslaughter charge based on a Miami-Dade County Medical Examiners Office autopsy report indicating Rodriguez died of injuries sustained in the fight. Were waiting on a more detailed report than what we have right now, Winter said, which could lead to a murder charge. Miller is being held at the Monroe County Detention Center in lieu of a $100,000 bond. He was arraigned Thursday at the Freeman Justice Center with Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones presiding. Following Millers arrest, Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said Miller told detectives he gave a woman he didnt know $10 to buy beer from the Tom Thumb convenience store on Maloney Avenue. She returned empty handed. Miller asked her for his money back. Instead, she ran over to Rodriguez, who was on a bike. Rodriguez then reportedly got off the bike and the two men started fighting. Witnesses said Miller knocked Rodriguez to the ground and kicked him in the face before fleeing.

We visited there last spring and he met and heard the story about Jax. Jax is a dolphin that was injured when attacked by a shark in the St. Johns River in Jacksonville in March 2007. His dorsal fin sustained a large bite when he was young and he was found stranded on the beach. The Dolphin Research Center nurtured him back to health and has made a home for him there. They spoke about the many volunteers and resources needed to keep him happy and healthy. Bradford was so taken by Jax that he has gotten many stuffed dolphins since then, and cut bite marks in their fins to make them more like Jax. He has been very worried about Jax since we returned home and wanted badly to do something to help him, even from so far away. Bradford, as a summer fundraising project, wanted to make and sell cookies in our town. He made the chocolate chip cookies on his own, with only moms help with the oven. He then set up a stand in town with lots of signage and got lots of traffic. He wanted to earn more, so he created and had a worm stand. He collected worms from the yard, put three each in baby food jars with dirt and sold them as pets at a stand in our neighborhood. He sold out in 30 minutes. I am sure it helped that friends and neighbors knew it was for an injured dolphin. He earned, all told, $25.56, all on his own, which he has sent into the Dolphin Research Center. He would like to earn more in order to earn a commemorative brick on their walkway of donors, so he will continue his efforts in the fall. I was so touched at his generosity and determination, as well as the dedication of the volunteers at the Dolphin Research Center, I thought it would be a great opportunity to highlight their wonderful work. Jayne Benton New Canaan, Conn.Legal status with caveatsOur government and our media say that we have about 11 million immigrants with no legal status, but nobody can prove these numbers. The best way to get the real statistic would be by allowing all immigrants without legal status to have a drivers license or ID card in all our 50 states. By doing that, our nation would gain safer streets and roads because we would have a huge number of people no longer driving without a drivers license and insurance. Also, would have a real record of who are the immigrants, how many they are, where they come from and where they live. The requirements for obtaining these documents would be:Presentation of a valid passport from home country.Proof of physical residence where the document issued will be sent.Proof of a clear record from courts.Proof of auto insurance or UNOC (use of non-owner cars).Proof of income tax.Validation of drivers license or ID card would be for one year and to be renewed would have mandatory presentation of all items listed above.Drivers license test will be in English only.Fees for drivers license and ID card would be 50 percent more of the charge to people with legal status, and the money difference would be donated to a U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement operations account. Jose Peixoto Key LargoDoyle puts trust in his employees, embraces ideas for effectivenessOftentimes when the management of an organization calls on its staff to get creative to make the organization more effective, the employee-driven ideas get collected, then are put on a shelf to gather dust. So its refreshing to see Michael Doyle, executive director of the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District, not only seek out ideas from those who work for him, but start to implement what makes sense. In March, Doyle called together more than 100 people over two days to gather in the districts Marathon airplane hangar. The goal: Hammer out ways to streamline district operations while working smarter and staying within budget. Those attending were mostly district employees, but there were others from throughout the Keys, ranging from the sheriff to the owner of a chocolate shop to a newspaper editor. The primary question: Where do you see Mosquito Control in five, 10 years? From there, the ideas flowed through everything from open discussions to small breakout groups performing skits for the entire gathering (yes, that was a little silly). Since then, Doyle has embraced many of the ideas, even though some of them seemed far-fetched for example, having employees use jet packs to spray larvicide and adulticide over hard-to-reach places. That hasnt been fully embraced (if its even feasible), but drones have. Doyle wants drones. We know that talk of unmanned aircraft flying through Keys skies will bring out the conspiracy theorists who believe government is spying on them, but this is a pretty good idea that would help keep the mosquito population to a minimum. The drones wouldnt be used to spray chemicals but for staff to spot standing water where mosquitoes breed in places they might not otherwise. Its very much designed for law enforcement when you watch the video, but it has a short-wave infrared camera we may be able to use to detect shallow water, Doyle said. It may or may not; thats what we have to find out. If it works, it means larvicide would be sprayed in those areas to keep mosquitoes from hatching. Thats far better than killing with adulticide mosquitoes that have already hatched. Condor Aerial, a North Carolina company that would supply the drones, plans a demonstration Aug. 26 in Marathon. The idea for the drones came out of that two-day work session in March, proving that Doyle is empowering his staff to take ownership of, and help direct, their agency. That makes for happier, and in turn better, employees. Other ideas that came from the March session were using paintball guns to deliver larvicide in some instances, rebranding the agency logo and make more use of social media. The forward thinking of Mosquito Control since Doyle came aboard in July 2011 is refreshing, as is his trust in his staff which some day might very well fight the bugs with the help of jet packs.

Spearheaded by Executive Vice President Virginia Panico, the chamber has been a consistent spending watchdog, urging the Mosquito Control Board to keep its tax rate low. That makes Bruce Holden, the chambers director of research the past 18 months, an interesting choice to replace longtime Comptroller William Southcott as Mosquito Controls new finance director. Southcott retired earlier this year. District Director Michael Doyle admitted the irony of the hire is not lost on him, but says Holden is qualified with knowledge of local budgets. He was one of 50 applicants for the position. Hes got a degree in economics and a [masters in business administration]. He understands budgets, especially in Monroe County. We looked at people from elsewhere, but it made sense to find someone who knows how the budgets work down here, he said. Holdens duties with the chamber have included analyzing local government budgets. He said thats how he got to know Doyle. I had that connection already. I worked with Michael and Bill Southcott to go through their budgets, so I had a working relationship with them, he said. According to Holdens resume, his economics degree is from the University of Virginia and the MBAis from James Madison University in Virginia. Holden, 50, worked for Amvest Corp. (1985-1990) and Westmoreland Coal Co. (1991-2007) in Virginia before coming to the chamber last year. He said he retired early from Westmoreland, aiming to move to the Keys, a favorite vacation spot of his, for several years. He did so in 2012. Panico pointed out that the chambers close eye on Mosquito Control finances is her initiative and said Holden would be a fine employee for the district. Bruce has been a wonderful employee and Im always proud when they advance and go on to their endeavors. Hes done very well with me and the chamber as far as Im concerned, she said. Holden is scheduled to start with the district on Sept. 9. In the meantime, Doyle and interim Finance Director Steven Weed continue to oversee the proposed fiscal year 2013-14 budget this summer. The district also contracted with Southcotts Black Dog Enterprises and Consulting LLC to provide part-time help with the process. The longtime comptroller retired at the end of June after 24 years with Mosquito Control. He formed Black Dog to use for business ventures after leaving the district. Holden will earn $79,000 per year, while Southcott was earning $115,960.He moves over from chamber in Key WestBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROL we can kill the mosquitoes. The real challenge is finding the water quickly enough, Doyle said. The drones are products of North Carolina-based Condor Aerial, which will have a representative on hand on Aug. 26 to operate the test flight. Doyle said the district would perform several test flights and know within a week if the UAVs could help with mosquito control. Condor Chief Executive Office Fred Culbertson said the drones have mainly been used for law enforcement searchand-rescue operations, but that more civilian uses are popping up. There are hundreds of these deployed across the globe, mainly for searchand-rescue operations, he said. Everybody has a different reason to use aerial technology, but it hasnt been affordable until drones came on the scene. Over the course of time, these are easier to deploy and you dont have all the costs that go along with a full-size aircraft.Civilian use risesFrom Drones,1A Subscriptions 743-5551

The company made the software available last week through Googles online Play store. It requires a $100-ayear subscription to Office and wont be sold separately.The new offering follows the release of an iPhone version in June and brings an Office app to phones running the most widely used operating system on new smart phones.Like the other mobile versions, the new Android software is designed for lightweight use. For example, you can use it to view and edit an attachment sent by email. But its not meant to create a complex spreadsheet from scratch. Microsoft Corp. is trying to make its Office 365 subscription more compelling, without removing an advantage that tablet computers running Microsofts Windows system have the ability to run popular Office programs such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint. The release of this app shows that were committed to keep providing additional value for Office 365 subscribers, the company wrote in a blog post. Office 365 subscribers will now be able to access, view, and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents with Windows Phone, iPhone and Android phones.Microsoft is pushing subscriptions as a way to get customers to keep paying for a product that was historically sold in a single purchase. The company touts such benefits as the ability to run the package on multiple computers and get updates for free on a regular basis. However, a subscription can be more expensive than buying the package outright for just one or two computers. Microsoft said it designed Office Mobile for Android phones specifically for the phones smaller screen, even though many people will prefer editing documents on a tablets larger screen. The company has a version for iPads and Android tablets, called Office Web Apps, but that runs on a Web browser and requires a constant online connection. The new Android software is an app that gets installed on the phone and can work offline. With a subscription, customers typically get to use Office on up to 10 devices. Five of them can be Windows or Mac computers or Windows tablets. The other five can be iPhones or Android phones. Windows phones come with Office installed and do not count toward the limit. In failing to make a version for the iPad, the top-selling tablet computer, Forrester Research analyst J.P. Gownder has estimated that Microsoft is potentially ceding $1.4 billion a year in revenue, based on 10 percent of the 140 million iPad owners paying for a $100 subscription. Gownder said failure to provide it on the iPad or Android tablets gives incentives for users to explore competing offerings such as QuickOffice from Google and iWork from Apple. Technically, iPad users can download the iPhone version, but it doesnt take advantage of the larger screen, so images and text are fuzzy when blown up. Android tablet owners wont be able to download it at all through the Play store.The new software requires Android 4.0 or later the Ice Cream Sandwich or Jelly Bean flavors of Googles operating system. At first, its available only in the U.S., though Microsoft plans to expand to 117 markets with versions in more than 30 languages.Microsoft did not announce any plans for BlackBerry phones.But Microsoft isnt putting it on tabletsBy ANICK JESDANUNAssociated PressTECHNOLOGY MARKETPLACE Recent Real Estate SalesSALES vs. LAST YEAR: 123 percentBased on information from the Florida Keys Board of REALTORS, Inc.

The Florida Department of Transportation is leadin g the $41.5 million, 820-day rebuild of the citys main traffic artery, which had been reconfi g ured as two lanes inbound since construction started in April 2012. Ananth Prasad, DOTsecretary, warned at a meetin g with business owners that the switch to two-way traffic with no turn lane will cause major delays up to 10 minutes if an inbound motorist is stuck behind another thats tryin g to turn left. By Labor Day [Sept. 2] we will open the entire stretch to two-way traffic, he said to applause. Well do our best. If someone is turnin g left, yield. The business owners attendin g g enerally a g reed the chan g e will help them but Mayor Crai g Cates reiterated Prasads caveat: It mi g ht not be what everybody hopes for. The option DOThad su g g ested before bowin g to the business owners would have returned two-way traffic, but with a turn lane, on the entire 2.9-mile stretch by March 15. We cant make it that lon g , Donna Nelson, owner of the Ima g ination Station toy store at 3302 N. Roosevelt, told Prasad. Ill be happy if I make it to December. Thats not fast enou g h. Its not g oin g to save my business. In response to concerns about motorists creatin g a traffic tan g le waitin g to turn, Nelson said, Were smart enou g h to let people make a turn. Dale Ranson, owner of Dominos Pizza on North Roosevelt, said his business is down about 30 percent. Arcadio Rodri g uez, owner of Banner Tire, said his sales are down $160,000. You have my word, Prasad told the crowd. This project will be done by July 31, 2014. State Rep. Holly Raschein (R-Key Lar g o) moderated the meetin g which was attended by the Key West City Commission. When complete, the 2.9mile stretch of North Roosevelt will include a new seawall bordered by a 20foot-wide landscaped promenade, four lanes of traffic each 11 feet wide, a 10-foot center turn lane and a sixfoot sidewalk on the business side of the road.

Come November, he could have a birds eye view should he win one of two open seats on the Marathon City Council. Senmartin, 43, qualified on Tuesday to run. The seats of Mayor Mike Cinque and Vice Mayor Richard Keatin g are openin g Cinque is bein g term-limited out after three two-year terms. Keatin g and former Mayor Pete Worthin g ton previously qualified to run. Senmartin, the owner of Cash Flow Jewelry and Pawn Shop, said with his 6and 9-year-old sons a bit older, and a more flexible schedule, now is an opportune time to seek office. Ive been wantin g to do it for years. Every time the election comes around, we talk about it, Senmartin said, referrin g to his wife. Senmartin made the decision and paid the $720 filin g fee. The deadline to submit 59 petitions to g et on the ballot and pay no fee was July 9. Senmartin said the fact that no one else has so far stepped up to challen g e Keatin g and Worthin g ton played a lar g e role in his decision. That was a bi g part of it, too. This is a democracy we live in and we need to have a choice. Shoo-ins it shouldnt happen that way, he said. Senmartin has lived in the Keys for 25 years, and operated a number of small businesses, includin g a record store, mobile car wash and mobile window tintin g operation. There are always thin g s comin g up that have to do with small business people and I dont think they have enou g h of a voice up there ri g ht now, he said. Senmartin said he would solidify his platform as the election draws nearer, notin g that the city runs well and he wants to do his part. I teach my kids to lead and not follow and to lead by example and thats what I want to do. I think the town would benefit from some of my business experience, he said. Senmartin said its not all bad bein g a fresh face when it comes to local politics. The businesses Ive had and have now, Ive made them all myself and Im not beholden to anybody for anythin g , he said. Candidate qualifyin g for council election ends at noon Tuesday. The election is on Nov. 5.Businessman says its time for new bloodBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON SENMARTIN Next for homeless center: The financin gWith data and recommendations from a consultant in hand, Key West City Mana g er Bob Vitas is poised to start layin g the g roundwork for an overhaul of how the homeless are dealt with in the city. As had lon g been talked about, Texas-based consultant Robert Marbut recommends the city establish a 24/7 service center that centralizes food service, housin g medical care, mental health and substance-abuse referrals under one roof. Thats in line with a twoyear effort driven by Mayor Crai g Cates to convert the old Easter Seals buildin g on Colle g e Road on Stock Island and surroundin g cityowned property into a shelter, replacin g the Keys Overni g ht Temporary Shelter, which is further down Colle g e Road on property owned by the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. After Marbut fielded a few questions from the City Commission Tuesday ni g ht, Vitas laid out the next steps. In terms of the next step, obviously we need to start a new dialo g ue with all the strate g ic stakeholders, he said, listin g amon g others, the Sheriffs Office, county Health Department, the Public Defenders Office and a variety of nonprofit and faith-based or g anizations. Next, We need to do some spatial plannin g We need to task order someone to fi g ure out precisely what we need. The property in question comprises the Easter Seals buildin g the Florida Keys Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals shelter and Florida Keys Mosquito Control District headquarters. Mosquito Controls lease with the city runs throu g h May 2014. There needs to be a project bud g et which has to be discussed, Vitas said. And as a part of that, the on g oin g fundin g sources. We know what the city is spendin g [$450,000 per year]. When you start to add this up, its a multimillion-dollar issue. Goin g forward, we need to have a g reements with local partners. Marbut is based in San Antonio, where he is chief executive of Haven for Hope, a lar g e-scale homeless services campus.He estimates Key Wests homeless population at 1,422 and said the majority of the people are chronic homeless, defined as either livin g on the streets for a year or more or havin g four or more shelter visits in a three-year period. More than any other place in America, you have more people come here to be homeless. Its a fun place to g o, he said. By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEYWESTPermit system to g et extendedThe Marathon City Council is expected to finalize an amendment on Tuesday extendin g the sunset date of a law aimed at g ivin g willin g property owners a better chance to build a house.The citys buildin g -permit allocation system helps mana g e limited development ri g hts in place due to the Keys bein g an Area of Critical State Concern. Twice each year, in January and July, the city doles out buildin g ri g hts from a list of ranked property owners. It can award as many as 12 residential permits and three affordable permits each time.Many landowners have been unable to move forward in recent years because of the poor economy, which led the council in 2009 to adopt the temporary procedure in place. In the past, the city was limited to g ivin g permits to the first 12 ranked applicants. If we g o down the list of the first 12 in the normal ordinance and any of them dont want to build, we cant g et past 12. In the past that hasnt mattered because it was intensively competitive.

Absolute heavenCombine two hot-weather refreshments, beer and ice cream, and you get a beer milkshake. Depending on your perspective, this beverage may sound either intriguing or alarming, but two restaurants in the Keys pull of the mash-up successfully.One is the M.E.A.T. Eatery and Taproom, mile marker 88, Islamorada (852-3833).Its hard to resist trying something that includes Nutella. Chef George Patti crafts many of the condiments and ingredients at M.E.A.T., from bacon and caraway-beer mustard to the Nutella ice cream he uses in some of his adult milkshakes.The chalkboard menu at M.E.A.T. often lists two shakes: Vanilla bean ice cream with Wells Banana Bread beer or Nutella ice cream with Guinness. However, you might just find your sweet spot by requesting Nutella with the English Banana Bread beer. It arrives in a frosty mug, topped with whipped cream. The chocolate in the Nutella dominates any hazelnut flavor and theres also a subtle banana bread tinge. Its all melded with the malty overlay of beer. After drinking this, you may want all of your milkshakes to be beer milkshakes. During the summer, Patti whips up a seasonal shake with mango-passion-fruit ice cream and Fox Barrel Pear Cider.The menu at M.E.A.T. includes traditional milkshakes, along with some remarkable burgers. M.E.A.T. Eatery is in a nondescript strip mall on the oceanside of U.S. 1. Dont be fooled by the plain appearance. The other is at 2 Cents, 416 Appelrouth Lane, Key West ((305) 414-8626).

Forty athletes attended an orientation meeting, with about three dozen donning shoulder pads for midweek drills. Ahandful still need to get a physical exam or resolve other off-the-field situations before joining the Hurricane squad. Weve got some holes to fill, Holly said, but if we can take about 30 to 35 guys into the season, well be fine. Im excited. With Island Christian School not expected to field a six-man football program this fall, the Hurricanes have added a sophomore lineman from ICS. Astandout running back for the Eagles in 2010 also may join the Coral Shores roster. Running back is one position where Hurricanes coaches feel comfortable. Senior Eddie Dunn, a threeyear Coral Shores letterman, leads the depth chart with junior speedsters George Jacobsen and Henry Jacobsen are expected to get plenty of carries. Sophomore Nick Frisone won the quarterback job for the spring season and now works with the Canesfirstteam offense through preseason. Seniors Jake Niedbalski and Benny Cosme return to the offensive line as starters from last years 6-4 season. That still leaves three spots to fill, Holly said. Paul Pauchey, a junior defensive back with two years experience as starter, and Dunn at linebacker anchor the defense. Darren Govan and David Williams, who joined the program in the spring, have been among the really nice surprises, the coach said. The 2013 Hurricanes make their formal debut in the Kickoff Classic exhibition game in Tavernier against Naples Community at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 23. An intra-squad scrimmage may be played Aug. 16 but plans remained tentative.CORAL SHORES FOOTBALLBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgConchs face tough scheduleBuoyed by his success last year as a first-time head football coach with an offensive plan that initially drew skepticism, Johnny Hughes puts on his fishing hat and heads out to the sun-baked mangrove-bordered Key West High field to prepare for the new season. Hughes, 44, who succeeded his uncle Jerry and put in the triple-option offense, guided the 2012 Conchs to a 6-4 record, although the team, like the seven before it, failed to make the state playoffs. I learned last season to stick with [the triple option] because its going to work, Hughes said this week as fall practice began. I was a little nervous about it last year some said it was a middleschool offense and some said it was too complicated. The offense was especially effective on the ground. In a loss to Miami Norland, one of the top defensive teams in the state, the Conchs amassed 397 yards, mostly by running. For the season, Key West averaged more than 400 yards in total offense. The running part of the offense will again feature the 5-foot-7, 170-pound Deonte Stemage, who, last season as a junior, broke away for 800 yards, an average of 10 yards per carry. He went to the University of Miami camp this summer and was clocked at 4.4 seconds in the 40, Hughes said. Andrew Freeman, a baseball pitcher who did not play football last season, is expected to be the new quarterback, succeeding the graduated Donald Roberts. Hughes said he believes Freeman can make the team a passing threat. In recent seasons, the Conchs had the disadvantage of being in a three-team district with Miami powers Norland and Jackson. Now, they are in a newly aligned District 16-3Awith Jackson and two other formidable teams, Cardinal Gibbons and American Heritage Plantation. Jackson will come to Key West and the Conchs will travel to Gibbons and Heritage. Add tough non-district opponents Belen Jesuit, Gulliver Prep and Westminster Christian, and you have, Hughes said, a pretty brutal schedule. Key West will open the regular season on Aug. 30 against Coral Springs Charter at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium.By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST FOOTBALL

Aradio ban on Bee Gees music. Critical bashing. Many of the jokes were ridiculous and unfair, like the ill-fated Disco Demolition Night a baseball promotion event at Comiskey Park in July 1979 in which a crate full of disco records, including Bee Gees albums, was detonated on the field.But David N. Meyers new biography of the group is among the worst affronts to the Brothers Gibb yet. Its a poorly written clip job, with paragraphs so laden with quotes from so many sources that your eyes ache. Its also full of errors. Songs are cited as tracks on the wrong albums, and there are several inexcusable misspellings of famous names (Barbara Streisand and Barry Gordy really?)The failure of Meyers book is particularly egregious because The Bee Gees: The Biography is touted as the first narrative biography of the group with two years of investigative research and because Meyers 2007 biography of late country-rock pioneer Gram Parsons, Twenty Thousand Roads: The Ballad of Gram Parsons and His Cosmic American Music, was meaty and insightful. Theres a compelling story to be told about this family act, which sold more than 250 million records, wrote countless multi-genre classics, helped put Miami on the pop music map and suffered the loss of three of the brothers: Solo artist Andy at age 30, Maurice at 53 and Robin, last year, at 62.This book, however, is a woeful missed opportunity that rehashes previously published accounts. It spends a chapter reviewing Barry Gibbs first solo concert in 2012 at Hollywoods Hard Rock Live yet fails to detail more significant topics such as the surviving brothersfalling-out after Maurice died in 2003 from a twisted intestine at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach. Meyer, obviously not a fan of the Bee Geesmusic no matter how much he protests otherwise, is entitled to criticize the trios music, even the Bee Geesmonumental contribution to the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack he portrays as glossy pablum [sic]. The Bee Geestracks, save one, have not aged well.... No late-period Bee Gees track offers a greater conundrum than Stayin Alive.Its a killer song, as modern today as the day it was recorded.... Acloser listen reveals the core problem. The vocal-only tracks from StayinAliveare hard, ugly and effortful. The harshness of the vocals is a hidden time bomb in the song, making it hard to listen all the way through. He reaches for inane proof to back his shaky viewpoints: Stayin Alivespent less time at No. 1 than any other No. 1 on the LP, he writes, perhaps unaware that length of time atop the Billboard chart is more likely a reflection of timing and competition from other songs out in the same tracking period. And, anyway, StayinAlive was dethroned by Andy Gibbs Love Is Thicker Than Water, a Barry Gibb composition. Even on the rare instances when Meyer likes a tune, he offers insipid reasoning. If Barry Gibb never wrote another number ... To Love Somebodyshould be enough to cement his reputation as one of pops most important songwriters, and perhaps the one with the most underappreciated range and breadth. Barry, along with brother Robin, co-wrote To Love Somebody for soul singer Otis Redding, who died before he could record it. Meyer writes that if the greatest songwriters of 1967 were locked in a room and told to write a song for Redding such greats as Bob Dylan, Smokey Robinson, Carole King, Paul Simon, Lennon and McCartney, HollandDozier-Holland, Barry [sic] Gordy none of them could have written a song as soulful, yearning, memorable and yet so attuned, for emotion and commerce, to Otisvoice, breathing, timing and performance style.... The proof that they couldnt is that they didnt. Isnt it conceivable that these legendary songwriters didnt want to write a song for Redding? Or just had other things to do? Meyers prose reaches a vulgar nadir when his observations curdle into outrageous, crass juvenilia.

Saturday,August 10,2013 3B Keynoter KeysNet.com Photo ANDY NEWMANThe Key West Lighthouse and Keeper's Quarters Museum mirrors turn-of-the-century life on the island, complete with historic furniture, artifacts and photographs of early Key West. Museum captures maritime historyEditors Note: Periodically, LAttitudes features a Keys attraction that doesnt get much attention but helps preserve the history and culture of the Florida Keys. In Key Wests long maritime history, one name that frequently gets overlooked is Barbara Mabrity. She became the second Key West Lighthouse (938 Whitehead St.) keeper in 1832 after the death of her husband Michael, who was appointed to the post in 1826, when John Quincy Adams was president and signed the appointment papers. Lt. (later Commodore) Matthew C. Perry had recommended construction of the beacon in 1825 to ward ships off shoals that surround the island. Barbara Mabrity went on to serve in the Keepers post for 38 years, 32 as the head keeper. To understand how difficult a job it was, consider that 15 whale-oil-fueled Argand lamps provided illumination atop the tower, amplified by 15inch reflective mirrors that could be adjusted to increase visibility. It was a primitive light and the lamp wicks neededEven Civil War couldnt douse Key West lightLAttitudes StaffKEY WEST Attractions offer discountsWhats called the Florida Keys and Key West Museum and Attractions Weekend, providing free or value-added admission passes to participating museums and attractions in the island chain, is set for Aug. 23 to 25.

Gunsis often too much Guns. Rated R. 109 minutes. Playing nationwide. Starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, Guns is another in a long line of action-comedy buddy-cop movies. And it follows the same generic plot line that throws together two characters who seem to have nothing in common but by the end of the film are best buddies. Less than a month ago, Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy gave us their version of the genre with the very funny The Heat. This time, Icelandic director Baltasar Kormakur, who directed Wahlberg in 2012s Contraband, adds one of Hollywoods most consistently bankable stars in Washington. Along for the ride is an excellent supporting cast that includes Bill Paxton, Paula Patton and Edward James Olmos. Guns opened to a box office of $27.1 million last weekend, but it was disappointing considering what was expected with the addition of Washington. Based on a series of graphic novels by Steven Grant, the movie proves these two stars can attract viewers 51 percent of the audience was female, unusual for a violent action film. But it remains to be seen whether the two leads are strong enough to overcome the confusing and less-than-convincing plot to make the film a mega-hit. ADrug Enforcement Administration agent and a naval intelligence officer find themselves running for their lives as several different groups try to kill them. The twist is that neither one knows that the other is an undercoveragent. Washington plays Bobby Trench, a.k.a. Bobby Beans, the DEA agent who has been undercover for three years trying to bust a Mexican drug lord named Papi Greco, played by Olmos (Blade Runner, The Green Hornet). Wahlberg is Stig, the undercover naval intelligence officer whos also trying to bust Greco as well as Trench, whom Stig believes is a dealer. In one of several ridiculous plot devices, Bobby and Stig somehow team up and rob a bank in an attempt to gain evidence against Greco. But the money they steal doesnt belong to Greco and the real owners will stop at nothing to get it back.Paxton plays Earl, a violent enforcer for the organization whose money was stolen. He has a particularly convincing way of getting people to tell him what he wants to know. He overplays his characterabitbuthasa way of somehow making Earl believable. Olmos is perfectly cast as the vindictive drug lord who proudly shows off his bowling bag, where the flies buzzing around the bag hint that it doesnt contain a bowling ball. Patton is Deb, who is possibly Bobbys former lover and/or co-worker and seems to be playing both sides. The supporting cast does a good job and the locales that shift back and forth from desert to Navy base to bank to diner are photographed well. The desert scenes are particularly effective and viewers may find themselves reaching for their drinks to wash down the dust. Its a fun film in which the pace doesnt drag and the characters are well drawn. On the negative side, the plot is somewhat bewildering (some viewers may never figure out Pattons character, Deb) and the violence liberally sprinkled throughout can be graphic. Viewers will have to really suspend their disbelief at some of the glaring Hollywood exaggerations; its amazing how quickly characters can recover from gunshot wounds and how one Zippo lighter can do so much damage. And how does a drug dealer leaving his girlfriends house not notice the throaty rumble of a suspicious black car idling 50 feet away?The saving grace of the film is the easy rapport between Washington and Walberg, whose work indicates they could actually be real-life best buddies.Films fun but much of it is unbelievableMOVIE REVIEW Denzel Washington (left) and Mark Wahlberg save the often-ridiculous Guns.

And because the lamps emitted so much soot, the Lanthorn glass had to be cleaned every four hours. Mabritys husband succumbed to yellow fever, which hit Key West in 1832, so William Adee Whitehead, the Collector of Customs, appointed the widow as temporary keeper. As Key West Art and Historical Society records duly note, Not only was she well qualified, Whitehead said, but also she needed the modest salary to support her six fatherless children. Life was good for Barbara Mabrity in Key West, but not idyllic. Further north, the Second Seminole War was in full swing, and on July 23, 1836, Indians sacked the Cape Florida Lighthouse. Key West was in near panic. The USS Constitution, the famous Old Ironsides, was brought into Key West Harbor for protection, and Whitehead Street was extended from the harbor to the lighthouse, giving the Mabrity family an escape route. She was still at her post during the Civil War, which brought special challenges to Key West, where sympathies were divided. Some families that hailed from the North supported the Union cause. Others sided with the South. The lighthouse was a potential pawn in the battle to close the port to Confederate ships attempting to run a Union blockade. Again, from the Historical Societys accounts: Even though Key West was a Union city, its residents were sympathetic to the Confederacy. Barbara Mabrity, too, had pro-South leanings but took her lighthouse duties seriously. She never failed to keep the light shining, though many of the lights further north along the southeastern seaboard were extinguished to thwart navigation of Union ships maintaining the blockade. In fact, the Key West Lighthouse was the only Florida light station not to fall to the Confederacy during the war. The lighthouse (which the U.S. Coast Guard decommissioned in 1969) has been restored by the Historical Society, which operates a museum there. The Lighthouse and Keepers Quarters underwent a three-year restoration in the 1980s as the military museum exhibitions were replaced with artifacts that tell the story of the keepers who kept the light burning. The clapboard bungalow that housed the keepers and their families was recreated to mirror the turn-of-thecentury lifestyle, complete with historic furniture, artifacts and photographs of the culture and history of early Key West. When you visit, remember Barbara Mabrity raised six children in that house and spent 38 years keeping the light going. Today, visitors can walk up the 88 steps to the top of the light as well as explore the belongings, photographs and words of the lighthouse keepers and their families who lived a now-obsolete yet never-forgotten way of life.

Teams are required to reuse, recycle and regenerate floatable items found around the house to construct their boats. Materials can include wood, PVC, jugs, buckets, pool noodles, plastic wrap, lawn furniture or cardboard. The resultant hulls are usually bound together with a roll of all-purpose duct tape or whatever substance is needed to hold all team members inside the craft. Offending items that can disqualify a vessel if used include motors, foam, floats, rafts or pool toys. Teams can use oars, paddles or even hoist old Tshirts as sails to propel their vessels. Each must navigate a half-mile buoyed course along Blackwater Sound from Key Largos Caribbean Club (mile marker 104.1) to Sundowners and back. Acaptains party is scheduled for 7 p.m. Aug. 16, at Senor Frijoles, mile marker 103.9 bayside. Check-in on race day the next day is 2 p.m. Races begin at 3 and are free to enter and watch.Waterfront bars and restaurants offer excellent viewing areas for observing the race and enjoying a Keys sunset, with live music and more fun to follow.Prizes are awarded to teams with the most creative vessel, best-costumed crew, fastest vessel, best hard-luck story and vessel containing the most participants that still floats. The minimum age to participate is 13.For more information about the Key Largo Merchants Association event,go to www.keylargoany thingthatfloatsrace.com.Anything goes, almost, during Aug. 17 raceKEYLARGO 91298 Overseas Hwy, Tavernierbbtheatres.com NOWALLDIGITAL!

The free program, open to the public, will be a PowerPoint slide show titled F.E.R.A./Red Cross Houses. Such houses were concrete built in the Upper Keys for families who owned property and lost their house in the 1935 Labor Day hurricane. There were 19 concrete Federal Emergency Relief houses built on Upper Matecumbe Key, seven on Plantation Key and two in Tavernier. Only two have been torn down. They ranged in sizes from one bedroom to five bedrooms. Historian Jerry Wilkinson will show stepby-step construction photos for the steel reinforced houses, built from 1936 to 1938 For more information, call 852-1620 or visit www.keyshistory.org.Tropical HeatKey West turns red hot Aug. 15 through 18 when the Key West Business Guild presents Tropical Heat, four days and nights of adult, all-male parties.
