Southernmost sets recordAMaryland-based company this week announced a record purchase of the 260room Southernmost Hotel Collection on the Atlanticend of Duval Street. The previous record was set in 2006 when West Palm Beach-based Ceebraid Signal purchased the Holiday Isle Resort in Islamorada for $98.25 million. With 143 rooms, that price equaled $687,062 per room. In may the Pier House Resort and Spa in Key West sold for $90 million, or $633,802 per room in the 140-room property. At $184.5 million, that sets a new record for Keys hotel properties at the equivalent of $709,615 per room. The previous record price was set in May when the Pier House Resort and Spa sold for $90 million, or $633,802 per room in the 140-room property. The Southernmosts new owner is Bethesda, Md.based LaSalle Hotel Properties, a publicly traded company with holdings totaling more than 11,000 rooms in nine states and Washington D.C. Coldwell Banker Realtor Brian Schmitt called the sale price pretty stunningand said the hospitality real estate market is really heating up. My sense of it is that of [the pricing] is being driven by virtue of the barriers to entry into this market. You cant go out and buy a piece of dirt and build a hotel because you need the entitlements. The other part, Schmitt added, is the performance of this market overall compared to all the markets in the country. I think that has driven up the pricing and were realizing that in some of these sales.

An attorney for the statebacked insurer of last resort has notified Keys officials that state law prevents release of policyholder details. This despite the fact that Citizensboard approved spending $485,000 to fund the study of windstorm risk and insurance rates in the Keys. Heather Carruthers, president of the non-profit Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe, said she feels a little like Citizens could be hedging when it comes to releasing the information. Im not sure what their end game is; if they really do want to depopulate they should let us go about it the right way, she said. The cynic in me says were a cash cow for them and they dont want to let us go, but Im going to give them a benefit of the doubt. With roughly 26,000 poli-WINDSTORM INSURANCEVillage gets surprise on wastewatercosts Aproposed change order could add millions more to Islamoradas $91 million wastewater construction project, and it could take almost a year longer to complete, according to a document obtained by The Reporter. The Aug. 26 change order term sheetwas written by Reynolds Water Islamorada, the company chosen to build the pipeline system to Key Largo. Preliminary estimate for the actual vacuum collection construction work . is $6,500,000,which includes low pressure credits. Representatives with Wade Trim, the company hired to oversee the design and build phase of the project, did not return messages asking to explain the change order. Reynolds referred all questions about the change order to the village. Greg Tindle, Islamoradas wastewater program manager, said in an e-mail that Reynolds handed out the term sheet during a meeting with village staff to discuss the feasibility, cost and time associated with implementing different technologies to provide cost effective gravity connection to property owners. The suggestion to explore vacuum systems rather than low-pressure systems, as was originally proposed, was made by Wade Trim. It was not apparent Thursday when that suggestion was made. The village has paid the Michigan-based firm more than $4 million since 2009. Tindle said Wade Trim is evaluating options and has not yet made a recommendation. Mayor Ken Philipson said Thursday he did not know about the proposed changes or the costs and time delays associated with them until he was asked by a reporter. I didnt know anything about it, Philipson said. This is the first Ive heard of it. The Village Council has called a meeting at the community center inFounders park onWednesday, starting at 4.pm., to discuss possible design modifications and to explore options for resident wastewater connections to the system. Tom Brzezinski, Wade Trims chief business development officer, did not return a phone call seeking comment on the change order. In addition, the Reynolds communique states that the company would charge the village an additional $220,000 to review the feasibility of installing vacuum collection systems on the island. The document also states that the vacuum systems would likely require an additional 270 days to be added to the contract deadline of Dec. 1 2015 (utility work) and May 29, 2016 (paving) including related overhead costs for the time extension. Further, the Reynolds document states that work cannot begin until all property acquisition, permitting and rezoning, has been completed by the Village for any required parcels or easements related to the work, including all vacuum sites, etc. If the property acquisition causes the project to be delayed past Oct. 1, Reynolds says it will have to charge the village an additional overhead relief of $15,000 per day. The document also weighs in on the delays in starting the Venetian Shores subdivision project. Reynolds said earlier this summer that it would not start digging up the roads in the neighborhood until the resolution of an ongoing lawsuit over whether the streets there are public or private. But if the lawsuit is not settled by Oct. 1, Reynolds will charge the village $15,000 a day. $6.5 million in proposed changesBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comISLAMORADA By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comSee Insurance,4ABy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comSee Deal,3A

Sheriffs deputies will patrol county wide, with special attention in the upper Keys for incoming travelers, and on Monday for those leaving the Keys. Throughout the weekend, Sheriff Rick Ramsay said, they will be patrolling the entire stretch of the island chain in an effort to keep everyone safe as they enjoy the weekend. Marine deputies will be on the water patrolling well. Remember, Ramsay said, it is just as important to have a designated boat driver if consuming alcohol on the water as it is to have a designated driver for your automobile. Be patient as you navigate heavy traffic on the highway. Dont pass in no passing zones and dont follow too closely behind the car in front of you.

Marilyns true home was Marathon, FL where she moved in 1966 to raise eight children as a single mother. The greatest triumph of her 85 years was setting the model as a responsible loving parent with the required sense of humor. Marilyn worked 15 years at many restaurants in Marathon including The Quay and IHOP. She retired from the Florida Highway Patrol after 10 years as a drivers license examiner. Marilyn is survived by sons Ken, Gary (Sherry), Scott (Jodi), William (Jodie) and daughters Nancy Goins (Greg) and Sheri Koontz (Mark McMasters). She was heartbroken when son, David and daughter Kristen Durkee predeceased her. Marilyn was proud and supportive of her 12 grandsons and 5 grand daughters. She always enjoyed stories and pictures of her great grandchildren, Aiden and Delaney Wilson. Marilyns children extend their appreciation to her long time friends on 110th St. Ocean, especially Rose Diezel and Barbara and Sam Demming. A celebration of Marilyns life will be held in Marathon at a later date.

In the 1950s he joined the Navy, was stationed in Puerto Rico and served as an electrician. Mr. Johnson relocated to Southern California, raised his two sons, worked as a medical equipment specialist and owned an ice cream parlor.

His Key Colony and Casa Clara friends hosted a life celebration gathering which he was able to attend. School board approves hike in property taxThe Monroe County School Board on Tuesday approved an increase in property taxes to support $1.4 million for teacher raises mandated by the Florida Legislature in the second of three required public hearings. The total raise pool for Keys teachers includes about $100,000 from the state and the remaining $1.3 million comes from local coffers. Monroe and a handful of other property rich counties in Florida have to locally raise 90 percent of school taxes. Finance Director James Drake, whose contract was approved on a 4-1 vote Tuesday, projects matching revenue and expenses at $84.5 million. This years adopted budget for the 201213 fiscal year had revenue projected at $80.1 million and $79.5 million in spending. The proposed tax rate, which can be lowered but not raised ahead of final approval on Sept. 3, is $3.68 per $1,000 of assessed property value. The current rate is $3.66 per $1,000. That means the owner of a $300,000 home paid $1,098 in schooltaxes this year. With an increase in the tax rate, that same homeowner can expect to pay $1,158 in school taxes next fiscal year. The district has an unassigned fund balance of $5.6 million, or about 7 percent of general-fund revenues. How the raises are allocated to teachers, guidance counselors, school related personnel and other district employees is the subject of ongoing collective bargaining talks between Superintendent Mark Porter and the United Teachers of Monroe union. The next public bargaining session is set for Sept. 4, running from 2-6 p.m., at Marathon High School. Although the budget already took effect July 1, the final hearing is set for Sept. 3 at Marathon High School, beginning at 6 p.m.$1.3 million for mandated teacher raisesOUR SCHOOLSBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com Adderly house photo by LARRY BENVENUTIPat and Ron Townley returned to Marathon to celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary at their former residence.They were surprised to learn the Adderley House,where they stayed,is now on the National Register of Historic Places.

HISTORIC Governor appoints Koenig to FKCC boardOn Thursday, Florida Gov. Rick Scott appointed Key West attorney Tim Koenig to the Florida Keys Community College Board of Trustees replacing board Chairman Antoinette Martin. Scott also reappointed Marathon media consultant Anne OBannon to a second four-year term on the community colleges governing body. Koenig has served as a magistrate for the 16th Judicial Circuit since 2009; he has a bachelors and law degree from Florida State University with the term ending May 31, 2017. Both appointments are subject to confirmation by the Florida Senate. Scotts last round of FKCC Board appointments came in April 2012 with reappointment of Key West attorney Edwin Scales III; Brian C. Schmitt, a Marathonbased Realtor, and Robert Stoky, an Upper Keys businessman and restaurant owner. The Board of Trustees next meet Sept. 23 on the Stock Island campus. FKCC started the fall semester two weeks ago with full-time equivalent students numbering 329.3, which is more than 6 percent enrollment decrease compared to the same period last year. The college did report, however, their Lagoon Landing dormitory has 98 out of 100 beds filled. The college operates centers in Marathon and Tavernier and has an approximately $10 million annual budget.Joins OBannon on five-member governing bodyCOMMUNITY COLLEGEKeynoter Staff CLASSIFIED ADS 743-5551 Drone test a successFlorida Keys Mosquito Control District Director Michael Doyle says an unmanned drone test flown on Monday for the media performed well in a second set of test flights Tuesday. North Carolina-based Condor Aerial brought the unmanned autonomous vehicle to the Keys as the district explores whether the drones infrared cameras can spot shallow pools of water for treatment to control salt marsh mosquitoes. Tuesdays four-flight session collected data on the drones effectiveness. It went well, Doyle said. We got to test the infrared and you could definitely tell where water was and wasnt and see it in places you normally cant with the naked eye or regular video. We were impressed with the technical abilities of it. Doyle said staff had to take the advice of the pilots because they look at infrared all the time, but that the difference between shallow and deep water was clear. They were really excited to see things that we couldnt see yet, so theres definitely a skill to it, he said. The colder the water the more black it is [on the screen]. Asmall deep pool would be a black dot, where a shallow pool would be gray. Mondays test flight drew several media outlets, including a Miami TVstation and German film crew. Doyle referred to the time leading up to the demo as a minor media frenzy. Doyle told the Keynoter numerous other companies have reached out to the district about infrared technology. Weve gotten contacted by a bunch of other companies, he said. Were keeping money in the budget for it, but we wont purchase anything until Oct. 1 when the next fiscal year begins, he said. Doyle said one drawback to the drone was that it lacked a bottom-facing camera that would make it easier for the district to map findings on computers.

Once known as for the number assigned during initial rescue efforts, the adult female was renamed Hundy during her time at the marine park. She was an amazing animal, said Mike Boos, SeaWorld Orlandos vice president of zoological operations. All of us feel privileged to have had the opportunity to care for her. The SeaWorld team is feeling a loss right now. Ayounger pilot whale, Fredi, from the same mass stranding of 23 animals off Cudjoe Key is in good heath at SeaWorld. Fredi was classified as unreleaseable since she was too young to have learned oceanic survival skills before stranding. Both the whales were moved to the Marine Mammal Conservancys rehabilitation site in Key Largo shortly after the stranding. They remained there until September 2011, when SeaWorld Orlando was designated by federal wildlife officials as their permanent home. We really appreciate the work so many people put into the rescue and care of these two whales, SeaWorlds Nick Gollattscheck said of the Keys efforts. Volunteers spent hours and hours caring for them. We know theyll feel this loss, too. Hundy was about 12 feet in length and weighed more than 1,000 pounds during the rescue effort. In an online statement at the Marine Mammal Conservancy website, a group spokesman said, Unfortunately, we know that loss is often part of the rehabilitation process. Most animals that strand usually have a myriad of health issues and 300 was no exception. However, she was a fighter and continuously proved her ability to persevere. Rehabilitation is always an uphill battle but this loss doesnt mean we have lost the war, the MMC said. was an ambassador for her species and she left an indelible impression on each volunteer, visitor, and scientist that interacted with her. Hopefully, we are each able to use this knowledge to empower us in conserving future generations of marine mammals. Hundy never fully recovered from the stranding. She received daily treatment and therapy at SeaWorld for a variety of health issues that were likely associated with her stranding, most notably severe scoliosis, a curvature of her spine. In late 2011, she was fitted with a custom brace in a bid to straighten her curved spine and help her swim. Hundy had a special spirit, Boos said. She surprised us many times during her long rehabilitation...Through it all, she maintained a bright and enthusiastic attitude. The exact cause of Hundys death will not be known until test results from a necropsy are analyzed. Hundys death was sudden, considering her improvement over the last several weeks, a SeaWorld report says. She had demonstrated remarkable progress in her mobility, activity level and response to physical therapy sessions over the past few months. She had been doing very well and only showed signs of acute illness for two days before Mondays death. Hundy had a special spirit, Boos said. Most of the 23 pilot whales that stranded in the Lower Keys died on the scene. Two healthy males were taken back to sea after being fitted with tracking devices. They were swimming together off Cuba when batteries on the tracking devices ran out. Five whales were taken to the MMC but three did not live long. Hundys survival was uncertain, but eventually was deemed healthy enough to join Fredi at SeaWorld Orlandos new rehabilitation center, which is not open to the public. Three pilot whales from a 2012 stranding also are in care at SeaWorld Orlando with Fredi.SeaWorlds says goodbye to at marine parkOUR OCEANS Photo from SeaWorld OrlandoBrant Gabriel of SeaWorld Orlandos animal-rescue team helps Hundy acclimate to her surroundings shortly after arriving at SeaWorld Orlando in September 2011.The pilot whale,rescued during a mass stranding off Cudjoe Key, died this week.By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comKevin Woodland, dead at 58Kevin Woodland, one of the city of Marathons longest-tenured and most community-oriented residents, died Monday at the age of 58. Woodland and twin brother, Robin, have for years owned Property Doctors landscaping business, but he was much better known for having a hand in various city activities. Woodland was heavily involved in youth activities and was a founding member of the Marathon Youth Club. He was also instrumental in the Marathon Alumni Athletic Club, raising money for Marathon High School. Probably the kids were the most important to him, Woodlands sister, Sue Macon, said. Macon said Woodland went to Kay Gradick, then principal at Marathon High, to ask if the school could start a junior varsity football program. She told him, If you want to raise the funds go right ahead,and he did. He had to get a license to drive a bus because he drove the kids to the game, she said. Woodland threw his hat in the political arena in 2000 when he made his first run for Marathon City Council. He also ran in 2006 and 2008. Woodland served one term on the citys advisory Land Acquisition Board from 2005 to 2007, and on the advisory Code Compliance Board from 2006 to 2008. As a private resident, he often campaigned in recent years to have a community pool and running track built in Marathon. Woodlands family moved to the Keys in 1969 and he graduated from Marathon High in 1973. He started a business called Marathon Window Cleaning at just 17 years of age and it grew into Property Doctors and Twin Cities Landscape Corp. Macon said Woodland was diagnosed with cancer around a month ago. He was given a short time to live and spent the last month at home with family. I look at it like you can live with knowing something longer and have to deal with it or find out late and not. Not knowing is sometimes better because you can keep living life the way you were, she said. MARATHONSecurity tightened at school districtWith a change put in place this week, visitors can no longer simply stroll into the Monroe County School Districts headquarters and visit with Superintendent Mark Porter and other district administrators. Instead, visitors to the districts Trumbo Point headquarters must check in with a gatekeeper and then be escorted to their destination, appointments preferred. Porter, in an email to the Keynoter, said security at the A.J. Henriquez administration building has been somewhat if not egregiously lax. We are a public entity, Porter continued, and will continue to maintain [an] open door policy, but with appropriate procedures and safeguards for students and employees. In support of the change, Porter said, We are attempting to incorporate a single point of access into all of our school buildings and have made modifications as to facilities and procedures at many locations. He hadnt responded by press time Friday to follow-up questions asking for details on those other operational changes. Larry Murray, a former appointed member of the districts Audit and Finance Committee and unsuccessful School Board District 3 candidate, noticed the new measures during a Monday visit to Trumbo Point. So much for casual and informal, Murray said, interpreting the move as circling the wagons. He questioned the single point of access concept, given the open-campus design of most Florida Keys public schools. Porter pointed out the small alternative school Academic Connections for Excellence, formerly housed in the May Sands School on United Street, is now operating out of the district administrative building. For these reasons, Porter said, we have modified procedures regarding access throughout the building and now ask that all visitors check in at the front desk where they can be greeted and escorted by those they are coming to meet with.Porter cites new rules for public accessOUR SCHOOLS By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com

Freeman, C.P.C.U.294-2542In Florida Call Toll-free 1 (800) 292-2542513 Southard Street, Key West Remedys Institute Of Healthcare Sciences HEATHCARE EDUCATIONIN THE KEYS Financing Available for Fall Classes Call 305-395-5282 or 850-371-4704 cies in the Keys, Citizens is the largest insurer for coastal windstorm coverage in Monroe County. Last year, Gov. Rick Scott mandated that Citizens Insurance begin to depopulate, reducing its portfolio of 1.3 million policies statewide by at least half. Michael Peltier, spokesman for Citizens Insurance, said on Wednesday the count currently stands at 1.22 million policies.The study, being paid for by Citizens, will look at risk engineering, survey Keys buildings, and conduct a catastrophe risk analysis using history and damage claims information. Peltier said the agency is hamstrung by state law, which prohibits releasing proprietary information. We have pledged our support for their study and will help them all we can, but we are not going to break the law, he said Wednesday. In a July 24 letter to FIRM board member Annalise Mannix, Citizens attorney Thom White did outline another state law allowing policy information to be released to authorized insurers considering underwriting risks currently insured by Citizens. Please review these statutory provisions and consider whether either of these exceptions could be used to obtain the requested data to perform the study, White wrote. We are not representing that all of the information you have requested will be available under the specific exceptions. Carruthers, a member of the Monroe County Commission, addressed the study at the boards Aug. 21 monthly meeting in Key Largo. She said FIRM is exploring various avenues to try to obtain Citizens records. On my agenda this week is to work with the county and our attorney to see if they can release the information to the county, Carruthers said. What we need to know is who are your policyholders and what are their premiums and what does Citizens think their home looks like? What kind of mitigation credits are they giving them? she added. Meanwhile, FIRM is in the final stages of negotiating contracts with its top choices to conduct the threepronged study. South Carolina-based Applied Research Associates Inc. was the topranked firm to conduct risk engineering, while Marathon-based Solaria Design & Consulting would perform on-the-ground inspections of Keys homes to verify the prevalence of wind-mitigating features in our building. Aon Benfield, a subsidiary of global risk management firm Aon PLC, was chosen to conduct the natural catastrophe risk analysis. What were working out right now among the vendors is whos responsible for what. How much data do we need to collect, and how many on-site inspections do we have to do and how detailed because that impacts the cost? We have a set amount of dollars we have to give out, Carruthers said. Citizens has approved several takeoutarrangements aimed at transferring policies to private companies following Scotts mandate last year, though Carruthers said that effort has had very little effect on the Keys. Who owns data?From Insurance,1ACFO hi r i n g fi n alizedJames Drake is the Monroe County School Districts new finance director following a 4-1 vote Tuesday by the School Board meeting at Coral Shores High School in Tavernier. As promised, board member Ed Davidson criticized Superintendent Mark Porters selection and hiring process. Drake came to Monroe County in April to replace the ousted former Finance Director Ken Gentile. Drakes new contract, valid until June 30 next year, is worth $91,004; his four-and-a-half month interim deal was worth $47,040. Davidson said Porters selection process conducted largely this month caused the School District to miss out on a number of potential applicants who took other education jobs that began in June and July ahead of the August start of the school year. This is not a thorough search, Davidson said. I dont think this was a valid search at all. I find that problematic. He called it a scam and a charade,and recommended a 90-day emergency extension for Drake in tandem with a legitimatesolicitation and search process. Most people already had other jobs, Davidson said. Like all other personnel decisions, we waited until the last minute. This is a pattern and the problem is with Porter and his hiring practices. Without going into detail, Porter responded, We did go through with a thorough process in this regard. I believe it was a proper process, a well-conducted process. As Davidson continued his criticisms, board Chairman Andy Griffiths cut him off, albeit temporarily. I just counted four votes, Griffiths told Davidson. Youre basically beating up someone who is going to be our future team member. Thats not appropriate. Youre making a big mistake, Davidson said. If he fails, board member John Dick said, its a reflection on Mr. Porter. Thats the leverage we do have. I personally think [Davidson] was right about this process. Drake formerly served as assistant superintendent of business services for the Manatee county School District and, before that, for 22 years with the Florida Auditor Generals Office specializing in school district audits. In his interim capacity, Drake has prepared the districts 2013-14 budget plan among other things. When his initial contract went to the School Board in April, the item passed on a 3-2 vote with Davidson and Griffiths dissenting. At that April meeting, the board raised concerns about Drakes Manatee County work record, where his departure was marked by reports of a surprise $3.4 million budget shortfall. Based on records provided by Human Resources Director Ramon Dawkins, Drake beat out three other candidates.Superintendent again defends search processOUR SCHOOLS CRIME BRIEFS48 vehicles Stopped; 12 were searchedLaw Enforcement agencies participating in a highway interdiction operation on Stock Island this week made arrests on drug-related charges. The joint operation involved units with the Monroe County Sheriffs office, Florida Highway Patrols K-9 team and investigators with Homeland Security. On Wednesday, officers conducted 48 traffic stops, which resulted in 19 traffic citations and 12 warnings. Adozen vehicles were searched using a police K-9 team. Yasbany Noa Parrado, 33, of Marathon, was charged with trafficking in cocaine after 30 grams of the illegal substance were found hidden on his body. Joshua D. Levitt, 31, of Fort Lauderdale, was issued a notice to appear in court for possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Amado Cabrera, 28, of Key West, was issued a notice to appear in court for possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana. Christopher A. Montelius, 31, of Boynton Beach, was issued a notice to appear in court for possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com

I cannot speak for the others on DAC III, but I have been consistently vocal as to this amount for anyone as being excessive. In looking at the 5-3 vote, it would have taken 2 of those votes for the change to Turnkey designation to be eligible for $50,000 not guaranteeing that or $40,000. The Chamber could have ended up with nothing. I for one, as expected by the Chamber, still would not have changed my vote. When our Chamber shows a net profit of $193,000 and when asked, the only justification in changing from a Destination to Turnkey under the new guidelines was we want the money. It seems strange the Chamber would have such a profit and still feel they need $50,000 again. After this meeting, I was told they did not show administrative cost nor monies that went to Organized Fishermen of the Florida Keys. That again solidifies my vote. The Chamber gives bad information on their application? Where is their accountability?Originally, the Seafood Festival was the beginning week of Fantasy Fest, when tourism dollars are much needed. The OFF dropped the festival for whatever reason. It was brought back to life several years later in March based on that being the highest bank deposit times. Of course it is. The tourists are here already.On the money leaving Marathon and being handed to Key West. It is documented that Marathon is again gaining in room nights during Fantasy Fest. This year Fantasy Fest included more Marathon targeted advertising, including full page ads. Value is being received for Marathon, not just handing over money. What the Chamber should do is utilize this and tack on to that event like the Seafood Festival originally did. Build those heads in beds. Hint: Conchtober fest October Conchtober restaurants like you do and community park event to get people to stop and stay. I am asking OFF and the Chamber for their accountability. I have given you my explanation for my actions. I have proudly served on DAC III for over 12 years and hope to continue. While we may not agree on this issue, I am proud of my overall support for this district and feel my colleagues diligently do what they feel is best for our area as well. My hats off to Wendy, George, Sheldon, Bernard, Bill, Ralph, Kelly, Matt for your service and making your own decisions on all events and capital improvement applications that come before us. Vicki LTashjian Vice Chairman, DAC III MarathonWorkplace bullying starts earlyDo you remember the last time you were bullied? Have you ever wondered what happens to bullies in the school yard? Well, they grow up to be bullies in the workplace. Children in the school system have teachers, school administrators, resource officers, and parents to protect them. Adults in the workplace rely on supervisors, managers, administrators and others in leadership positions to protect them. What happens when the system breaks down? What happens when the supervisor is the bully? What happens when an employer fosters violent behavior by turning a blind eye to violence in the work place?Most employers have strict policies that prohibit violence in the workplace. These policies are designed to protect victims and employees who report violent behavior. What if employees, who rely on these policies for their safety, suddenly find that politics and personal gain could take away their right to a safe and professional working environment?Violence in the workplace should never be tolerated under any circumstance. Bullies should be suspended immediately pending an investigation by the employer. Otherwise, all employees are exposed to continuing harassment and intimidation. Avictim of bullying should never be forced to use vacation or sick leave to protect himself or herself. Employers have a responsibility to fire bullies and protect their employees against violence in the work place. The choice is theirs. Please know that bosses need the support of their employees to end the violent behavior before it happens again. Employees should come forward to share their own negative experiences in order to help employers maintain a safe working environment. Everyone can help prevent violence in the workplace. Dont wait for someone else to take care of the problem. Next time, it could be you or your loved ones. Shane Smith Big Pine KeyBe proud of our schoolsBy almost every measure, from national rankings to our economic climate, Floridas teachers and parents have many reasons to be proud. But we also know that success is never final. As a teacher and principal in Marion County, deputy superintendent in St. Johns County and now as commissioner of education for Florida, Im proud to serve at a time when momentum and passion are on our side as we continue making Florida the best place in the nation to learn, to work and to live. There is much that we can brag about in Florida. In the past two years, Gov. Rick Scott has proposed more than a $2 billion increase in funding for kindergarten through 12th grade that lawmakers approved, including $480 million for teacher pay raises. National rankings show Florida is moving in the right direction. High school graduation rates continue to increase at the fastest rate in the nation, with Florida leading the nation in the rate of Hispanic graduates. Four of the nations top 10 public high schools are in Florida, according to Newsweek. And the National Council on Teacher Quality rated Florida No. 1 in the nation in the area of teacher quality. These ratings are wonderful testaments to the work of teachers, parents, administrators and principals. But the best results are shown in the number of Floridians who are prepared to succeed in college, in careers and in life. While there are many factors involved in making Florida the best place to work and to live, the opportunity to learn is among the most critical items that families and employers consider when choosing Florida for their home or business. Even with our successes, we must always face challenges openly and quickly. While Floridas competitive standing has improved dramatically, we must keep the pace in developing world-class opportunities for students.With the implementation of new, more rigorous state standards in 201415, we will increase flexibility for schools and teachers while empowering students to think with the creativity and critical thinking they need to thrive.And as we consider the best paths ahead, it is my promise that every decision we make in Tallahassee will be focused on helping each child from Pensacola to Key West have the same opportunity to succeed. Pam Stewart Education commissioner TallahasseeVoters can sign petitions to get constitutional amendment on 2014 ballotFifty years ago, Florida launched an unprecedented land acquisition program that earned the state acclaim for the wise investment in conservation and recreation. The public, the Legislature and both Republican and Democratic governors enthusiastically supported the series of programs that brought almost three million acres into state control. But under Gov. Rick Scott and the GOP-controlled Legislature, Tallahassee eviscerated the states welldesigned growth management laws and gutted the funding for Florida Forever and regional water management districts, both with land acquisition programs that conserve acreage worthy of preservation. From 1990 until recently, the highly esteemed Florida Forever and its predecessor program thrived on an annual infusion of $300 million, collected primarily from documentary stamp taxes paid on all real estate transactions. This year, though, Florida Forever received a paltry $20 million in general revenue. To boost that meager amount, the state authorized the sale of $50 million in so-called surplus land. The 5,300 acres targeted statewide for disposal include 19.4 acres at Lake Manatee State Park and 13.1 acres at Terra Ceia Preserve State Park, the latter in several parcels at the southern approach to the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. Floridas Department of Environmental Protection is currently evaluating the land sales and plans to host public meetings in the fall to gather comments. Cities and counties would have priority over developers on land purchases, but why saddle local taxpayers with the expense when the state should preserve what it already owns? Voters will have to wrestle control of land acquisition and conservation away from politicians to put Florida back on the road to preserving land that will safeguard water, wildlife and vegetation. Acoalition of thousands of volunteers and 300 conservation and civic organizations from across the state united to place the Florida Water and Land Conservation Amendment on the November 2014 ballot. The Florida Supreme Court is reviewing the ballot language and is expected to rule in mid-September. Then this grassroots movement must deliver 683,149 verified voter signatures on petitions before the statutory deadline of Feb. 1, 2014, though organizers have set a more ambitious goal of Nov. 30. To date, 150,000 signatures have been collected. Floridians have proven to be good stewards of the environment, passing a constitutional amendment in 1998 with 72 percent of the vote surpassing the current benchmark of 60 percent approval. That amendment boosted the states ability to sell bonds for the purchase of environmentally sensitive lands and created high hurdles for the disposal of those lands, with the intention that conservation lands remain in state hands. Once a national leader in land conservation, Florida lost its way. Clean water and thriving ecosystems are vital to the states quality of life and economic prosperity. Voters can leave a similar legacy statewide by signing petitions and approving the Florida Water and Land Conservation Amendment. For more, visit the campaign website floridawaterlandlegacy.org. Bradenton Herald Adopt a rabbitAnyone who is considering buying a sweet, soft, adorable rabbit, please, please do your homework. Rabbits are wonderful pets and can give any home a quiet loving animal. They can be house trained and if treated with respect and kindness will give you hours of loving back. Please go to the House Rabbit Society on the web and read about what is needed to give them a good life. Or, contact your local shelter. If you check with a veterinarian, make sure they have knowledge and experience of rabbits. Rabbits can really be a lot of fun if given the right care and attention. After doing some research, please call your local SPCA instead of buying one at the store. Currently, they have five rabbits at the Key West shelter and three in foster homes all waiting to be adopted. Most likely they were bought at a pet store and then their owners got tired of taking care of them and took them to the shelter. It is my dream that someday soon rabbits are not sold in pet stores as a commodity. They deserve better. Many rabbit rescues operate at full capacity and often cannot take additional rabbits. Rabbits are the third most commonly surrendered animals in shelters, but one of the most challenging to place. Choosing a rabbit as your next pet is just as important as choosing a cat or a dog. Please do it wisely. If you cannot adopt a rabbit, please consider donating romaine lettuce and carrots to your local shelter. For those that can adopt, enjoy your wonderful pet.

Marketing is absolutely essential for business growth, and paid advertising is the only sure-fire way of getting out the message you want to get out, when you want it to get out. But if you are truly destitute and all your friends and family head for the hills when they see you coming, I have some good news. There are ways to market your business without shelling out any cash. The bad news is that you will have to pay anyway by investing your time.So if your business is absolutely flat, and you are just waiting for the phone to ring or someone to walk in, use that time to focus on one of more of these free marketing ideas. People do business with people they know, so get out and mingle. Join the chamber of commerce, a networking group, an industry association, a fraternal organization anything. Then get out there and work the crowds. But dont be pushy. Talk to people. Listen to them. Ask open-ended questions, like, Whats the most challenging part of your business? Be sure to get their business cards (and give yours, too); then follow up after the initial contact.Volunteer. Teach kids how to read, swing a hammer for Habitat for Humanity, pick up trash alongside the road with Adopt-a-Highway groups. If your volunteer work just happens to be in your field, all the better. Give speeches. See if you can be a speaker at a schools Career Day. Check with community groups to see if they need a speaker. Again, the point isnt to make a sale, but to build your visibility (and credibility).Make sure you can be found on the web. Do a Google search and see where your business can be found. You want to be on the first page of search results; much beyond the third and forget about it. Go to www.getlisted.org Put in your business name and zip code and see which search engines would help you improve the visibility of your business. All basic business directory listings are free, but they take time to complete and get approved.Check out websites or newsletters published in related fields. What sites might be interested in publishing a news you can use article from you? For instance: You install air conditioners. Is there a healthy living website that might accept an article from you on the pros and cons of the latest technological advances in boosting indoor air quality? Ask for a link to your website or, have them publish your contact information.Get a website, if you dont already have one. This is basic business infrastructure. This is where anyone, from anyplace in the world, at any time, can learn about your business. Your website can be simple, but it must be current. And yes, you can build one yourself.Get on social media. This may well be the most expensive free marketing you can do, because it takes time to create four to six posts a day and to engage those who come to your page. LinkedIn is a must for business people.Connect with you own customers. If you dont already do it, start collecting your customersfull names, where they live, their phone numbers or email addresses. Add as much detail as you can so you can have personalized communication with them. Reward your customers. They are your best and least expensive source of business. Offer special deals or discounts for referrals, or just because you appreciate their business. Ask for testimonials. If someone raves about your product or service, ask if you can use that as a testimonial. Get permission to use their full name, if nothing else; a pat on the back from a real person will always carry more weight than some anonymous person who could be a shill.Give something away. How about a free e-book or white paper on a topic within your expertise? Consider a trial offer, product demonstration, consultation, seminar or workshop. If you are giving a discount, be sure its meaningful, 15 percent or more. Work your prospects. Take your brochure and business card (or create a flyer) and visit likely customers. Spread the word. Post your/flyers/brochures/business cards around town in prominent places, including point of purchase, if possible. Supermarkets generally have bulletin boards that are open to anyone. Hold contests. Local media may be willing to run your contest notice for free as long as there is no fee involved. Your chances of free publicity will increase if you are doing it to benefit a local charity. Be sure to retain all the contact information you get from people who participate.Be someone people want to do business with. Under-promise and overdeliver. Do what you say youre going to do, when you say youll do it. Be clean and neat and make sure all your employees are, too. Greet people with a smile, even on the phone. Look them in the eye. Respond promptly. Finally:Be patient. Dont expect any marketing effort free or paid to produce amazing results overnight. Its about building awareness in your prospect pool, providing good value and being consistent.Curious about coaching?

Floridians feel better about their personal finances and have a positive long-term outlook for the national economy, according to the report, released this week by the Survey Research Center in the Bureau of Economic and Business Research. However, study authors note that optimism is dampened by growing concerns about short-term spending conditions.UF Center Director Chris McCarty said the outlook could be further tested if the Federal Reserve stops buying billions of dollars of mortgage securities every month to keep interest rates low and to stimulate economic growth.And, if Congress has another contentious debate about whether to raise the debt ceiling, that would also be viewed as a negative, he said. Both of these events will likely lead to pessimism among consumers as they weigh the effects, such as a lower stock market and discussions about who is going to shoulder budget cuts. For August, Florida scored a 77 under the centers index scoring system, the same as in July. The index is based on grades from five areas that range from personal finances to national economic expectations. The scale runs from a low of 2 to a high of 150, benchmarked with 100 being the level of consumer confidence in 1966.Florida News ServiceECONOMY BUSINESS BRIEFSJones joins Chamber boardFirst State Bank of the Florida KeysBig Pine Assistant Branch Manager Linda Jones has joined the Board of Directors for the Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce.

B Sports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Canes finesseshots carry the matchPower hitting, mainly by senior Ellie Leopold,had carried the Coral Shores High School volleyball team through most of the match, but in the end it was sophomore Melissa Helphreys finesse shots that finally turned back Key West for good Thursday evening at the Bobby Menendez Gym.Helphreys three consecutive tip winners from the left side broke a 22-22 tie in the third game to give the Hurricanes a 2522 victory and a threegame sweep in the District 16-4Aopener. Coral Shores had won the first two games by 25-15 scores. Shes a player, Coral Shores coach Andy Thiery said of Helphrey. Shes a very explosive hitter and shes a smart hitter. Helphrey was all smiles afterward. Yes, she said emphatically, when asked if she liked to be in charge when a game is on the line. Key West senior Ryann Appleby became a force late in the third game. After putting down a hard point at the net, she reeled off five service points to bring he Conchs from a 19-15 deficit to a 22-19 lead. But after a Conch error, two points by Skylar De Moss got the Hurricanes even at 22-22 and set the stage for Helphrey. Of Helphreys befuddling taps, Key West coach Kim Butler said, Were trying to learn how to read hitters and pick up the ball. With more than 200 fans on hand the bleachers were pulled down on both sides for volleyball for the first time in memory the match began with high energy. The Conchs came out in new black shorts. In the first game, Leopold, dominated with her hitting (she had 11 kills for the match). Brooklyn Irwins left-handed serving was also a factor for the Hurricanes, who never trailed. In the second game, Coral Shores ran off the first 10 points, the tenth on a kill by Helphrey. Helped by service errors, the Conchs tried to fight back, but Appleby and Cheyenne Peppers (two points) were the only scoring threats. The third game was tied, 15-15, before the Hurricanes score four points in a row, two on shots by Leopold and two on serves by Nykki Thompson. The match marked the return of Butler, who had coached the Conchs in the late s. In a red shirt and jeans shorts, she was a calm presence on the bench. Afterward, she calmly said, We have a lot of work to do.Coral Shores sweeps Conchs in 3-game matchBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorVOLLEYBALL Photo by BERT BUDDECoral ShoresMelissa Helphrey goes up for a shot against Key West during Thursdays match.At right is Brooklyn Irwin.Big hits win the day for Coral ShoresAflurry of big hits eventually won out, but the Marathon High School volleyball team did well Wednesday to make a competitive match out of its regular season opener against a solid Archbishop McLaughlin High School squad. The Dolphins lost in straight sets, 25-22, 25-12 and 25-23, but held leads late in the first and third sets. We have a really young team. In the grand scheme I think theyre playing terrific, coach Carol Miller said. Hurricanes junior Alyssa Mathis, whos committed to play at Division I San Diego State University after high school, was off early in the match. She mishit a number of kill attempts early before starting to find the mark. She was really cold the whole first game but we knew she would wake up and start hitting some balls in. I was jazzed to see the girls block a few of her shots; they were really happy with the way they played, Miller said. The Dolphins played well early in the first set, jumping out to a 15-9 lead and forcing the Canes to call a timeout. The Canes eventually tied the match at 17-17 and scored the final three points with the match tied at 22-22 on a Mathis kill and two misplayed serves by the Dolphins. The second set was close early, but three straight Mathis kills and an ace gave them a comfortable 16-10 lead. They pulled away and won easily. The third set was much like the first, as the Dolphins built an early lead before the Canes came back to tie it up. It was back and forth the restDolphins travel Tuesday to Miami for next matchVOLLEYBALLConchs break school recordUnaware that before the day was over he would be a part of Key West High relay-team swimming history, Isaiah Green said he was a bit nervous about making his Conch debut in the 200yard freestyle early in Wednesdays season-opening meet with Marathon. Nobody knows who you are right now, teammate Marcus Brisson said to Green, a highly touted junior transfer from Georgia. I know who he is, said teammate Derrick Allen, who turned to Green and added, We believe in you. Green dove into the turquoise water of the Florida Keys Community College pool and took off. He won the race in 2 minutes 4 seconds five seconds ahead of Marathons Aaron Grube. Waiting in the deep end for two other competitors to finish, Green relaxed his arm on the lane marker. Above a wide smile, his goggles were pushed up on his gray cap. He basked in the moment but his brightest moment in the sun was still to come. Four events later, Allen, in lane four, blazed toward a personal-best time in the 50 free. He won by almost two seconds over Brisson. The scoreboards red bulbs formed 22.7, which meant that Allen now trailed Luke Knight by only half a second on the Conchsalltime list. Im very proud, it feels really cool, Allen said. He looked over at a camera-toting woman on the deck: Hi, Mom. (It would be much later before Allen learned that his time was actually 22.92. A scoreboard bulb had malfunctioned, said Key West coach Lori Bosco. Still, the time was better than the 22.96 he recorded last year.) The 18th event was the boys 200-yard free relay, and Allen, Green and Brisson along with Chris Bujak formed one of the Key West teams.

Bonefish, tarpon become catch-andrelease only Sept. 1Starting Sunday, tarpon and bonefish will be protected by catch-andrelease-only rules that were passed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission earlier this year. The new rules apply in both state and federal waters: All harvest of tarpon will be eliminated, with the exception of the harvest or possession of a single tarpon when in pursuit of an International Game Fish Association record and in conjunction with a tarpon tag. Tarpon tags 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 hookand-line only. People will be allowed to temporarily possess a tarpon for photography, measurement of length and girth and scientific sampling, with the stipulation that tarpon more than 40 inches must remain in the water. Tarpon regulations will extend into federal waters. The bonefish tournament exemption permit is eliminated. This exemption allows tournament anglers with the proper permit to temporarily possess bonefish for transport to a tournament scale. The commission also approved modifying the tarpon tag program by eliminating current reporting requirements and shifting the start and end date for when the tarpon tag is valid from July through June to a calendar year, January through December. These rules go into effect Sept. 1. New rules take effect on Sunday FISHINGof the way and Marathon was on serve with the set tied at 23-23. Another Mathis kill made it 24-23 and senior Aileen Hnatiuk the teams other big hitter, sealed the win with a hard hit spike. Jordan Roney and Sydney Konrath led the Dolphins with four kills each, while Roney and John Nisha Qualls each had three blocks. Sophomore Katie Popejoy wore the Libero jersey as the teams defensive specialist and played well on the back line, Miller said.

The meet, which had begun with both teams singing the national anthem, was dominated by Key West, which had far more swimmers. The Conch boys won, 117-34, and the girls won, 117-49. Marathons star of the day was Malorie Woodbury, who won the 50 free (27.35) and the 100 free (1:03).

But with a smaller squad in a rebuilding year, the Canes struggled to assemble team points. Coral Shores put nine boys and 11 girls in the pool. The meet drew boys and girls teams from a strong Doral Academy program, a boys team from Belen Jesuit, and a girls team from Lady of Lourdes. Scored as a series of dual meets, the Canes were swept. The Lady Canes won six of 11 girls events against Lourdes, but lost the team competition since Lourdes fielded more swimmers to score points from lower finishes. Miles Miller, a Cane sophomore, scored 239 points to win the boys 1meter diving against Doral and Belen, but he was the only diver at the meet Wednesday. Kelsea Volland won the overall girls 100-yard butterfly with a time of 1:04.1, and was second (2:16) overall in the 200 individual medley. Lady Cane relay teams took second in two overall standings, the 200-medley (Tori Volland, Kelsea Volland, Kat Hamer, Makayla Cuppett, 2:02.5), and the 200-freestyle (T. Volland, Hamer, Molly Hunter, K. Volland, 1:51.6). Zekthi swam a 55.29second time in the boys 100 butterfly, good for second overall and a win over Doral. He also scored an overall second in the 200IM (2:01.5), good for a win against Belen.

The Lady Canes took the second and fourth games in the best-of-five contest before LaSalle rolled to a 15-6 decision in the tiebreaker. It was the only game decided by more than five points. Scores of the opening four games were 23-25, 25-23, 20-25 and 25-22. The Canes fell behind early in both of the first two games, but came back to tie the first late and rallied to win the second with a seven-point run after being down 23-19. It was as if collectively the girls decided they were not go quietly, stared defeat in the face and decided it was time to fight for each point, head coach Andy Thiery said. It takes so much clutch play and all-out determination to sustain a run in a match like this. Sophomore Melissa Helphrey served seven straight points, including three aces, to open the second game. Senior Ellie Leopold delivered 16 kill shots while Helphrey nailed 10. Other Lady Canes scoring points on kills were Skylar DeMoss (5), Amberlyn Casas (3) and Brooklyn Irwin (2).

You may not find too many restaurant chefs plopping their poultry on cans of PBR, but all those tailgaters and beachside grillers are on to something. There are solid scientific reasons that chicken really does roast better in a more upright, lifelike pose than when it is flat on its soggy back. And by adding a couple of extra prep steps to the technique and taking care with the temperature, you can get the best of both worlds: succulent, juicy meat and crispy, golden brown skin. On top of all that, you get to drink the beer! The chicken doesnt actually need it. Beer-can chicken recipes are everywhere on the Internet, but most of them dont address the two biggest challenges of roasting poultry. The first is to avoid overcooking the meat. Nothing is more disappointing at a Labor Day cookout than to bite into a beautifullooking chicken breast only to end up with a mouthful of woody fiber that seems to suck the saliva right out of your glands. The solution to this first challenge is simple: take your time, measure the temperature correctly and frequently, and choose the right target for the core temperature (as measured at the deepest, densest part of the thigh). When you cook the bird slowly, the heat has more time to kill any nasty bacteria living in the food, so you dont have to cook the heck the out of the thing. The federal government recommends bringing the meat to 165 F for at least 15 seconds. But guidelines issued by the USDAs Food Safety and Inspection Service show that 35 minutes at 140 F achieves the same degree of pasteurization, even in the fattiest chicken. The recipe below calls for several hours in the oven and a core temperature of 145 F to 150 F, which will meet those guidelines as long as you slow-cook the bird at a low temperature. But be sure you use a reliable, oven-safe thermometer and place it properly as directed in the recipe. The tip shouldnt be touching or near any bone. The second challenge that most beer-can chicken recipes fail to overcome is crisping the skin. Here, liquid is the enemy, and adding additional liquid in the form of a can full of beer is the wrong approach. So empty the can first the specifics of that will be left as an exercise for the readerand use the empty can merely as a way to prop up the bird and to block airflow in its interior so that the meat doesnt dry out. Also, give the skin some breathing room by running your (carefully washed) fingers underneath it before roasting. As the subdermal fat melts away, it will trickle downward; a few wellplaced punctures provide exits without compromising the balloon-like ability of the skin to puff outward under steam pressure. Held apart from the juicy meat, the loose skin will dry as it browns, especially during a final short blast of high heat in a hot oven. Done right, each slice of tender meat will be capped with a strip of wonderfully flavored skin, which will be at its crispiest when it emerges from the oven. So have your table ready, and dont be slow with the carving knife. But do take a moment to remove the can before you tuck in.Beer Can ChickenStart to finish: 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours (30 minutes active) Servings: 41 medium roaster chicken12-ounce can of cold beer (any variety you like to drink)Set an oven rack at the lowest position in the oven. Remove the upper racks. Heat to 175 F, or as low as your oven will allow if its controls do not go this low. Wash your hands well with soap. Remove the neck and bag of giblets, if included, from inside the chicken. Slide your fingertips underneath the skin at the neck opening and gently work the skin away from the meat. Use care to avoid tearing the skin as you pull it loose from the body; continue as far as you can reach on both the front and the back. Turn the chicken over, and repeat from the cavity opening at the base of the bird, making sure to loosen the skin on the drumsticks so that it is attached only at the wings and the ends of the legs.Use a knife to pierce the skin at the foot end of each leg and at the tail end of the front and back. These small incisions will allow the cooking juices to drain away so that they dont soak into the skin.Pour the contents of the beer can into a glass, and enjoy it at your leisure. Push the empty can into the tail end of the bird far enough that the chicken can stand upright as it rests on the can. If the neck was included with the chicken, use it like a stopper to close up the opening at the top of the bird. Otherwise you can use a bulldog clip to pinch the skin closed so that steam inflates the loose skin like a balloon and holds it away from the damp meat as the chicken roasts. Set a baking sheet in the oven. Insert the probe of an oven-safe thermometer into the deepest part of the chickens thigh. Stand the chicken upright (on the can) on the baking sheet and roast until the core temperature reaches 145 F if you want the white meat to be juicy and tender; for more succulent dark meat, continue roasting to a core temperature of 150 F. A medium-size roaster will need 3 to 4 hours.After the first 30 minutes of roasting, check the effective baking temperature by inserting a digital thermometer through the skin to a depth of 3/8 inch. The temperature there should be within 5 F of the target core temperature (either 145 F or 150 F). If it is too high, open the oven door for several minutes; if too cool, increase the oven setting slightly. Repeat this check of the near-surface temperature every half hour or so.When the core temperature hits the target, take the chicken out and let it rest, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, increase the oven temperature to its hottest baking setting. Dont use the broiler, but do select a convection baking mode if your oven has one. Return the bird to the hot oven, turn on the light, and watch it carefully as it browns. The goal is crisp, golden brown skin. The skin will start to brown quickly, and browning will accelerate once it starts. So keep your eye on it. Once the chicken is browned, remove the can, carve the bird, and serve immediately, while the skin is still crispy. EDITORS NOTE: W.

Slow-roasting key to juicy chickenScience proves beer-can bird roasts betterBy W.WAYT GIBBSAssociated PressFOOD Living Jewi s h holiday s e r vice s begi n o n Sept. 4The Keys Jewish Community Center, mile marker 93 in Tavernier has announced its program celebrating the Jewish High Holidays Rosh Hashanah through Yom Kippur begins Wednesday evening. Normally a lay-led, nondenominational congregation, the Center will once again feature Cantor Mark Halpern. And services will be led for the first time by Rabbi Richard Agler, DD, recently retired from Congregation Bnai Israel in Boca Raton. Agler, now a Keys resident, is known for his teaching style. The Jewish holidays come early this year, based on the Jewish calendar which follows a lunar cycle, unlike the solar calendar created by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582. Easter is also determined, in part, by the lunar calendar, which explains why it moves on the Gregorian calendar now widely used in the western world. Rosh Hashanah, Head of the Year services, begin at 8 p.m. Wednesday. Day One services for Rosh Hashanah follow the next morning at 9:30 a.m. Thursday. Kol Nidre, the evening service prior to Yom Kippur, will be at 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13. Fasting begins that evening. The full days Yom Kippur service will follow on Sept. 14, beginning at 9:30 a.m. Services conclude that day at sundown, when the fast ends. For more details of the High Holiday schedule, visit: www.keysjewishcenter .com and click on coming events.

My, how this event has grown over the years. The idea of hosting an open-invite for gay and lesbian travelers grew out of the Key West Business Guild, formed in 1978. Back in that era, Key West was still a sleepy little town in the dog days of August and September, interrupted only by a tourism blip on Labor Day weekend. To grow tourism business for those off-peak months, the Guild promoted Womenfest, along with three other signature events that came later: Pridefest Key West, Tropical Heat and the Headdress Ball. Among the headliners at this yearsWomenFest: Suzanne Westenhoefer, the first openly lesbian comedian to appear on Comedy Central, A&E, HBO and Late Night with David Letterman. She plays the San Carlos Sept. 7. Ahost of bands will be performing at various venues throughout the WomenFest schedule. Heres a partial list of activities.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 8B Saturday,August 31,2013 Drifting over the deep wreck with three knots of current basically made it unfishable. By the time the baits hit the sand, the wreck was long gone from the bottom machine and any attempt at a longer drift was met with an empty screen and quiet rods. The original plan would have to be altered. This was Parker Smiths birthday fishing trip booked by long time client and friend Kevin Smith. When Kevin called he explained that his brother Parker hadnt fished much, but his bucket list included a day of fishing on the South Atlantic Ocean offshore of Key West along with his traveling companion and partner Jody. The wrecks werent going to make the day, so back towards the reef became the new plan. Along the way, a color change appeared. There can be multiple water color changes at times from the beach to the blue water of the Florida Keys. These are caused by tidal flow from the Gulf of Mexico to the South Atlantic Ocean and vice versa. On these edges there can be an accumulation of floating debris, including bay grass, Sargasso weed and man-made debris that are compressed against opposing currents. These edges are places where baitfish hide and where predators find the necessary food sources for their survival.As we approached the change, a large gathering of frigate birds low to the water caught my attention along with two big Os. Captain Beau Woods, on his lower keys charter boat the Double OO had his clients in full casting mode along the change targeting the Sargasso weed that had pushed in to 200 feet of water just off the Maryland Hump. The water was boiling with activity. He was yelling over to us that jack crevalles were busting the hard tails (blue runners) on the weeds. My mate, Captain Seth, knew exactly what to do and had the jigs flying before Captain Beau finished the story. Along with the jack crevalles, there were yellow jacks, bonito and cero mackerels with an occasional blackfin tuna all crashing the small live baits trying desperately to avoid the aggressive predators from below and the frigate birds from above. This was exactly what Kevin had hoped for on his brothers birthday trip, a mad dog feed with lots of visual and physical action. The rods stayed bent for the rest of the day anywhere the Sargasso line was found. Paydirt.Fishing weed lines close to and over the reef can be very productive. Some pointers: 1. Bird activity is the first clue: Afrigate bird close to the water or descending with haste tells you the first part of the story. Fish are eating from below and causing baitfish to scurry. Frigate birds dont waste a lot of energy so when they react, they mean business. 2. Baitfish flying out of the water on the weed line: You may see a flash or the entire baitfish doing everything possible to avoid the jaws below. The action of the baitfish may also be followed by the tail exhaust of the predator. If this doesnt get you amped, then opera might be more your cup of tea. At this point you should start shaking. 3. Match the HatchTake notice of the baitfish that are under assault. Do what you can to match the hatch in lure size and color. Captain Seth made it easy for us by cast netting the hard tails so we were one hundred percent correct. Kevin Smith whipped the fly rod to add to the challenge.4. Drop deep.Not everything gets consumed at the surface. Many times we have found blackfin tuna feeding on the scraps below or if in shallow enough water snapper and grouper will be waiting for the protein rain to fall. This is carnage at its best with no prisoners taken. The movie Finding Nemo is clearly defined as a cartoon after witnessing the true nature of nature during a feeding frenzy.5. Boiling waterWhile in attack mode, all schooling fish become very aggressive and competitive. The water is churned into a froth by the reckless abandon of consumption. Highly suggested: Aggressively approach the eating fish and cast into the middle of the madness. The fish could care less about you and your boat. Work the lure quickly or if using live bait leave the bail open, only closing it after a five count of freely pealing line.
