That was made possible with Tuesdays vote to outsource custodial services, resulting in the elimination of 74 district jobs. Board members Andy Griffiths and Duncan Mathewson voted against the outsourcing. Robin Smith Martin, Ron Martin and Chairman John Dick, who broke the 2-2 tie, voted in favor. But Dick said that despite the need to pass the measure, he doesnt think the one-year deal with Cleveland, Ohio,based GCAServices will end well. Its not going to be good, Dick said, and I expect it to end poorly. But we need to have a budget thats balanced.The five-member board has approved a tentative budget of $82.23 million for the fiscal year that started July 1 and, until recently, had been figuring out a way to plug a $2.7 million shortfall.But with the projected $1.5 million savings from the custodial outsourcing, as well as $2.2 million coming by mandating seven unpaid employee furlough days and the elimination of planned 1.5 percent wage increases and five support-staff jobs, Dick said the budget is coming in balanced. Weve got it at this point, he said, adding, I will not knowingly put us in a position where were going to have oversight from a state-level committee. Hes referring to a policyBut outstanding issues with union still could hinder district financesBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Murphy lacks colleagues super-majority supportIts never a good thing when proposed laws conjure memories of the Monroe County Commissions infamous Gang of Three. But a proposed requirement that only super-majority votes four of five commissioners could change the countys land-use plan does just that for several current board members.The so-called Gang of Three, since voted out of office and replaced by current commissioners, was perceived by many as a pro-development voting bloc. It comprised Sonny McCoy, Dixie Spehar and Mario Di Gennaro.With a weakened state Department of Community Affairs providing oversight of Keys development, county Growth Management staff recommends changing landplan decisions to a supermajority from the current simple majority. Commissioner Sylvia Murphy had proposed it. It doesnt look like she has the votes to get it passed.Mayor Heather Carruthers and Commissioner George Neugent said theyre concerned the proposed law would empower the minority on the commission. And Commissioner David Rice said it makes no sense because it would take only three commissioners to repeal it.I think there will be some well-intentioned people who are in favor of it. Some of them are friends of mine Id like to agree with. Its not real possible to do that if you understand the system and what were trying to protect ourselves against, he said. Rice gave the example of a notorious Gang of Three directive: Spehars insistence the county purchase the Hickory House bar and restaurant on Stock Island in 2005 for $3.14 million. It was supposed to be used as public waterfront, but has lain dormant for six years. Murphy and Neugent voted against the purchase.She wants change in how land plan could be alteredBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY GOVERNMENTSee Commission,2ASee Schools,2A Major rewrite on the horizonDivers in the Upper Keys have been working to make the reef at Snapper Ledge a protected marine area for years.Fishing guides and residents in Marathon worry about degradation of nearshore shallows and fishing spots along the oceanside Marathon Bight, running from Sombrero Beach to Vaca Cut.On Tuesday, advisors to the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary take a first step toward updating the zoning plan within the 2,700 square miles of water in the Keys sanctuary.This kind of thing was contentious 20 years ago, sanctuary Advisory Council chairman Bruce Popham said Friday. It could turn contentious again, but I dont think so. Attitudes have changed.In the 9 a.m. open meeting at the Marathon Garden Club, the council will initiate a process to review potential changes to the sanctuary zoning plan.This is just the first step, Popham said. It literally could take two or three years.The string of 19 Sanctuary Preservation Areas the SPAs marked by yellow border buoys along the main Keys reef tract have remained essentially unchanged since they went into effect in 1997.

But thats what Jennifer Knopp, 39, did Thursday night, says the Monroe County Sheriffs Office.Agency officials say Knopp called Deputy Christian Galls on his SWATissued cell phone while he was working at the Marathon substation at 9:15 p.m. She had his phone number from a previous case hed worked involving her, although his arrest report doesnt go into details.The report says Knopp told Galls she had the stuff he was looking for, meaning crippie, a slang term known as a potent form of marijuana. She asked how much he wanted, and he said a quarter-ounce. Galls told her hed call her back, then told narcotics detectives about the phone call.

Marathon Community Theatre, about a mile from the Sheriffs Office. Galls headed to the theater along with Deputy Paul Bean and, when they parked and walked up to her 1999 Chrysler Concord, she drove away over two plastic parking rails. Galls and Bean ran back to their cars and pulled Knopp over a short time later. In her car was Christopher Flingos, 42. He refused to be searched and was released right there. Meanwhile, Knopp reportedly told Galls she had pot in her purse and, sure enough, the report says, the deputies found 24.5 grams of it inside. When Galls asked her why she would offer to sell pot to a cop, she reportedly said she hoped he would help her get away from Flingos. She said she didnt know what else to say, the report says. To confirm she made the earlier call, Galls dialed her phone number and an iPhone in her purse rang. The cops name and number showed on the screen. Knopp was charged with possessing marijuana.

Rick Scott on Thursday appointed Brian Barroso and Melva Wagner to the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority, which sets policy for potable water Keyswide and oversees construction of sewers in the unincorporated area except for Key Largo.Barroso, 38, of Key West is an assistant vice president at First State Bank of the Florida Keys. He succeeds Elena Herrera-George. Wagner, 52, of Key West owns Sellstate Island Properties. She succeeds Rose Dell.Both their terms run until Dec. 30, 2014.12 auto burglaries reported on CudjoeTwelve autos on Cudjoe Key were broken into overnight Tuesday into Wednesday, the Monroe County Sheriffs Office says. Five were burglarized on Sailfish Lane, three on Cutlass Lane and one each on 5th Avenue West, 6th Avenue West, Wahoo Lane and Anne Bonny Lane. Most of the vehicles were unlocked, although in two cases, windows were smashed. Valuables left on the seats were taken a purse, two laptop computers, GPS units, sunglasses, cash, credit cards, checkbooks, iPods, stereo speakers and a second laptop computer. that requires the state commissioner of education to be notified if the districts fund balance becomes less than 2 percent of projected fund revenue; at that point, Commissioner Gerard Robinson would have 14 days to review the districts financials and potentially appoint an emergency financial oversight board. Superintendent Jesus Jara said the new round of cuts will be incorporated into the districts budget by finance staffers. He maintains the district can impose the cuts, which arent included in a contract with the United Teachers of Monroe, without any signoff from union members. Union President Holly Hommell-Gorman disagrees and said she will file a grievance related to the outsourcing of custodial employees, which she contends was done in violation of their contract.Were not done yet, she said. Theres a provision in the contract for how they are supposed to outsource. They didnt follow that so were going to file a grievance. Were going to continue to fight on their behalf.She said shes planning to file a grievance with Jara. Once that happens, Jara has 10 days to schedule a meeting so union officials can make their case. Then Jara has 10 more days to provide UTM with a written response.If UTM doesnt accept the superintendents disposition, Hommell-Gorman said, we file with the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service for an arbitrator to be assigned.Once that person makes a determination, both parties have to abide by it, she said.Last week, an attorney for the Florida Public Employees Relations Commission dismissed an unfair-labor claim lodged by UTM related to the planned furlough days. Hommell-Gorman said that complaint would be amended and refilled by the end of this month.The $82.23 million budget is supported by a proposed property tax rate of $3.56 per $1,000 of assessed property value, meaning the owner of a $300,000 house would see a schools tax bill of $1,070.Balance struck?From Schools,1A Rice said Spehar, McCoy and Di Gennaro wouldnt have been ashamed to reverse a fourfifths requirement to get that purchase approved. What this is going to do is give people a false sense of security and theyll lose sight of the most important issue, which is who they put in office, he said. Murphy disagrees. They werent ashamed to do a lot of things, and they all got thrown out, she said of the Gang of Three. Do you want to be the one sitting up there making the motion to rescind that? I think they would think twice and theyd have to get two other people who also didnt care about their political future. Commissioner Kim Wigington said the commission should take changes to the countys land-use plan seriously.Our [comprehensive plan] is the communitys product of many, many hours of input and public hearings. Since we cant reasonably put changes to the plan on a referendum, I think it is reasonable to require a supermajority vote of the County Commission for such changes. It safeguards changing the rules for special interest. It gives peace of mind, she wrote in an e-mail.For much more on this story, go to www.Keys Net.com .Passage unlikelyFrom Commission,1APot deal goes badFrom Marijuana,1Aon for a long period of time.More than 3,000 people have signed an online petition to protect Snapper Ledge, described as home to some of the most dense and diverse marine life populations in the area. Divers regularly report the presence of large schools of grunts, snappers and many other species of fish, including parrotfish, rays, lobsters and more.Off Marathon, flats guides had been leading a push to create new no-wake zones near good fishing spots, or enact no-motor zones to reduce prop-scarring.Although there were numerous protests about marine protected zones when the sanctuary was being enacted and implemented, most of the response in recent years has been that more no-take areas are needed, Popham said.The constant feedback hasnt been that were going too far, but that were not doing enough on enforcement or protecting resources, he said. Sanctuary staffing changes and financial pressures have limited efforts to add or change protected areas, he said.Despite reduced budgets and tough times, the sanctuary council wants to start making progress toward change, Popham said.Were asking how we can better manage the sanctuary for our residents and the 3.5 million people who visit the Keys every year to see and enjoy our waters, he said. Tuesday, sanctuary Superintendent Sean Morton and staffer Steve Thur will present a summary document of current sanctuary regulations and zones, along with recommendations advanced by sanctuary advisors in 2008. Later, council members will be asked if they want to discuss any specific changes as part of an ongoing comprehensive review of regulations and zones. Any changes eventually recommended would require approval at the state and federal levels. Its going to take some time. Its a very big and complex job, Popham said. But this is our first bite at the apple. The Keys sanctuary Web site recently updated is at http://floridakeys .noaa.gov.Rewrite plannedFrom Sanctuary,1A Outsourcing process begins forcustodial jobsAlthough it passed with a 3-2 vote of the Monroe County School Board, even those who voted for it arent happy with their Tuesday decision to privatize the school systems custodial service. The board OKd a oneyear, $2.1 million contract with GCAServices of Ohio to clean all of the Keys public schools; it costs the School District around $3.6 million to do the same work.Per the contract, which is for one year with two oneyear renewable options, 74 custodians now employed have the opportunity to apply for 70 GCAjobs if they pass a background check. Whats really changing is how the laborers are managed.First of all, Chairman John Dick said, the board is put in a position where we have no choice. I find it offensive that were in this position. The people that caused this problem are getting away scot-free.In response, board member Andy Griffiths put some responsibility on the board itself, which he pointed out had approved raises for custodians over the years, growing the salary commitment to an unsustainable level.Board member Duncan Mathewson chimed in that the board voted against having a custodial supervisor position added; Dick countered by pointing out that each school has a lead custodian to provide on-site management.Theres a lot of people making a lot of money that arent doing their job, Dick said If you want to blame it on the one guy that lost his job last week, thats fine, but this has been going on for years. Dick was referring to Fred Sims, the former executive director of facilities and maintenance, whose job was eliminated effective at the beginning of the month. We need to get rid of the administration thats responsible for it, Dick said of the inflated and ineffective inhouse custodial department. Board member Robin Smith-Martin wanted to know who was responsible, rather than nebulously refer to administrators out there.Silent during this exchange was Jeff Barrow, assistant director of facilities and maintenance for the Lower Keys; hes the person who has been in charge of the custodial staff the past 15 years and headed the districts selection of a private company.If youre going to start outsourcing the lower end, Dick said, I want to see us outsourcing some of the administration. If youre going to do one thing to one, you need to save money across the board. Youre not going to pick on the-low salary people to save money.With GCA, the average hourly pay for a custodian is $10.18, compared with the districts average hourly wage of $16.63. All told, GCAwill spend $1.315 million on salaries compared to the districts $2.375 million. GCApoint man Bernie Decker said his company would go to the schools to meet with janitors and hand out employment applications and background-check paperwork in the run-up to taking over the service in about a month. Either party can terminate the contract for any reason with 30 days notice. There are other termination provisions, as well.District casts off over 70 custodiansBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYUnited Teachers of Monroe union President Holly Hommell-Gorman and Business Agent Leon Fowler,standing on either side of the fire extinguisher,field questions from confused custodians in the aftermath of Tuesdays vote to outsource 74 jobs custodial jobs.Ocean Reef wants port of entryAdd the tony North Key Largo community of Ocean Reef to Keys locales looking to become official federal ports of entry for international travelers. David Ritz, president of the Ocean Reef Club homeowners association, told the Keynoter Monday the affluent community is seeking the designation just like Marathon and Key West.Monroe County and Marathon officials, representing Florida Key Marathon Airport, and Oceans Reef officials representing their airfield, met with a U.S. Customs and Border Protection contingent on Aug. 2 to discuss opening an office at each airstrip.Ritz said Ocean Reef has more than 5,000 residents in the wintertime and that many travel back and forth to Canada and various Caribbean islands using the airports 4,400-foot runway. Numerous private planes are housed there. The first question is, Are we allowed to do it and able to do it, and are the users of the airport willing to spend the money to do it? Were gathering all the information. The airport users I talked to are very enthusiastic, Ritz said.Marathons plan was set back in May when Customs rejected using its own building at mile marker 49 to headquarter the service. But the federal agency is open to using space at the airport terminal to clear both planes and boats.Were going to have our folks talking to their architect, who will work with us to get a preliminary design on the work that would have to be done to meet their security needs for the terminal, said County Commissioner David Rice, who lives in Marathon. The important thing we need to look at is cost and we cant do that without a preliminary plan for what were looking at.Marathon Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay said Customs officials are clear the Middle Keys would be a userbased Customs operation. Normal ports of entry are government funded, he said, which you get by having enough people clearing to meet their criteria.If you dont hit those criteria, there are other ways and that is a user-based Customs facility. Thats supported by the local community, in this case the city, county, business community and everyone. Thats what were looking for, Ramsay said.As far as cost, Rice said a preliminary figure of $250,000 is being used to estimate terminal renovation and startup costs.

AFlorida law passed this spring affects statewide voting rules, and includes provisions that would reduce the number of early-voting days, and impose stricter rules for voter-registration drives and change-of-address limits on voting days.The rules have taken effect in 62 counties, according to the Florida Department of State, but Monroe County is among five Florida counties subject to additional federal review because of historic civil-rights voting violations.Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Harry Sawyer has already advised the U.S. Department of Justice that the laws changes are unneeded in the Florida Keys, and questions its purpose.Early voting is a hit throughout Florida. The voters like it and Monroe County does very well with it, Sawyer said Friday. We have known for a long time that the [Florida] Legislature does not like early voting. They have their own reasons for that.Rather than await a Department of Justice review for the most controversial provisions of House Bill 1355 in the five affected counties, the Florida Department of State has asked for a decision from a federal district court.State Rep. Perry Thurston (D-Broward) charged this week that the law moving to the district-court venue is a a maneuver to suppress the vote in our [minority] community ... a back-door effort to thwart the U.S. Department of Justice from enforcing the Voting Rights Act.The law proposes to cut the number of early-voting days from 14 to eight, but extend voting hours during the eight remaining days.I told the Department of Justice that a lot of people will be hurt by shutting down that first week of early voting, Sawyer said. People rely on that week because of jobs, transportation issues and other things. It would have a dramatic effect on turnout.Early voting and absentee ballots account for about 20 percent of Monroe Countys voter turnout in elections, Sawyer said. Changes that tighten rules on voter-registration drives and address changes by voters on Election Day would not provide any benefit to Monroe County, he said. We have never had problems with our local political parties or committees conducting registration drives, Sawyer said. It might be an issue somewhere in the state, but certainly not locally. The district court has not yet determined when it will review the Florida voting law revisions. Adecision on the remaining four provisions is expected to be made in time for the presidential preference primary next year, said a statement from Secretary of State Kurt Browning.Toppino pleads not guiltyAn attorney for Paul Toppino on Thursday entered a plea of not guilty on behalf of his client, who faces up to life in prison if convicted of burglary with assault while carrying a firearm. Toppino, 67, is part of a prominent Key West family that owns Charley Toppino and Sons contractors. The charge, filed by Assistant State Attorney Mark Wilson on Wednesday afternoon, carries a 10-year mandatory minimum prison sentence if Toppino is convicted. New Jersey-based attorney Jerome Ballarotto represents Toppino. Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones set a follow-up court date of Oct. 3. Key West police reports say that on July 19 Toppino, along with Michael Dennis, 66, and Graciela Lozano, 47, went to an apartment at 1719 Thompson St., which Lozano manages, to evict tenant Angel Roman. Wilson said the property had gone into foreclosure, was publicly auctioned and purchased by a bank. He said Roman was aware of that and refused to pay rent to or be evicted by Lozano. Toppino had in his pocket a .38-caliber Ruger handgun with six bullets, one in the chamber, and a back-up magazine in his pocket; Dennis wielded a baseball bat. When Roman answered the door, the group rushed and starting beating him. Lozano is charged with burglary with assault; Dennis is charged with burglary with assault while armed with a dangerous weapon. Theyd already pleaded not guilty.Contractor is accused in mans beatingBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com Saturday,August 13,2011 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com Big Pine Key, FL 305-872-4272 www.keysdentist.comChristopher D.

City getting new kayak launch behind City HallKeys Kayak owner Bob Rankin says plans for a kayak park at the City Hall events field between 98th and 99th streets are a blessing to his Marathon business.Often I have someone who wants to try a kayak and Im about a two-minute ride [from the site.] Its great to see a kayak-friendly town like were having right now, he said. For the expense, to give a luxury like that to tourists and locals, Im excited.The Marathon City Council on Tuesday awarded a $58,000 contract to Coffin Marine Services Inc. to construct kayak docks, a parking area and a boardwalk area and picnic pavilions on the oceanside canal at the 10acre city-owned lot. Rankin bought his business in November and has been kayaking the Middle Keys for 25 years. He said the City Hall site is not as expansive as Sombrero Beach or Coco Plum Beach, but that it provides plenty of scenery and an opportunity to paddleboard on a deep canal. Were all buzzing about it, he said. Big Pine Kayak Adventures owner Bill Keogh, author of Florida Keys Paddling Guide: From Key Largo To Key West, said Sombrero is the best launch site in Marathon, but praised plans for another access point. Any kayak access point is a good one, he said. If you live in that neighborhood and want to put in on the water and not drive to Sombrero Beach, itd be a good spot. The only no vote for the kayak park came from Councilman Mike Cinque, who raised concerns over the fixed-dollar amount request for proposals issued by the city in June. It was for $40,000, but the projects cost increased to $58,000.Like were doing with the [Grassy Key] fire station, we get renderings and make sure permits are in place and then we ask for bids, he said. Community Services Director Susie Thomas said each of the three respondents to the bid was given a $40,000 budget. She said a $20,000 Monroe County Tourist Development Council grant and $18,000 in impact fees would offset the cost.I didnt feel this was a big enough project to spend money on design. I felt we could get more bang for the buck, she said.Its not just a kayak park were building. The way we set it up with the gazebos all around the point is a beautiful concept. I would really like to do the work, Coffin Marine owner John Coffin said.The permitting process is expected to start within 60 days. How long until the actual facilities are ready for the public isnt known.Itll include some gazebos, a boardwalkBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON This canal behind City Hall is where the kayak launch is planned.The plans show where the parking area,launch,picnic pavilions and boardwalk will be. Zip-line funds help get OKThe Marathon City Council gave a cautious goahead Tuesday to help finance a planned zip-line course at Crane Point Hammock & Nature Center but fell short of actually voting to do it.The nonprofit Crane Point has asked the city to secure $750,000 in Community Development Block Grant funding through the state Department of Community Affairs to build the $1.1 million course. Several council members voiced concern about the city being on the hook to repay the grant if Crane Points projections for revenue and jobs created in the first year are wrong. The state awards $35,000 for each job created that lasts at least a year. Zip lines are basically cables strung from platform to platform. Riders attached to them move to each platform through a pulley system. Courses are popular in the Caribbean, Hawaii and other tourist destinations around the globe. Crane Point Operations Manager John Henderson has said the zip-line course would require the equivalent of 23 full-time workers the first year. That includes 14 guides and other staff. The project now moves to the next step in the public hearing process, which is a meeting of the citys Citizens Advisory Task Force board. The members are Linda Berrigan, John Bartus, Karen Dennis, Sharon Bauer and Donna Lookadoo. Theyre the ones who, if you had a case where you had multiple people applying [for the federal grant], would make a recommendation to the council, City Manager Roger Hernstadt said. That task force meeting date has not been scheduled. Councilman Pete Worthington agreed to move the project forward, but called Hendersons projections optimistic. Im having a hard time with why the city is guaranteeing this. Maybe we can have this committee come to us and explain some of these things, he said. Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay agreed: Im not going to vote [for the grant] unless Im convinced the city and the public are protected. Crane Point plans to pitch in $260,000 of its own money for startup costs,. and the Monroe County Tourist Development Council has pledged $85,000. Henderson says the course would consist of six zip lines starting at the Cracker House and incorporating the historic Adderley and Crane houses. It would soar over butterfly meadows, mangroves and the Gulf of Mexico at various points. No lines would be fixed to trees, and platforms would include educational information about plant and animal species on the 64-acre property. Henderson told the council the hope is for the course to be operational sometime during the first quarter of 2012.

This vote is scheduled for the County Commissions Wednesday meeting at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center in Key Largo at 3 p.m. As a developer with an extensive background and familiarity with local land-use regulation, I know it is essential to exercise restraint on land-use amendments. I am familiar with the Monroe Country comprehensive plan. It is an excellent document that protects our environment and quality of life while providing for reasonable growth. As an Area of Critical State Concern, in the past we have been protected and guided by the Florida Department of Community Affairs from ill-advised changes in the landuse plan. However, now DCA, under the new state leadership, has changed its guiding principles and we will have to totally rely on our county commissioners. Yes, the majority should rule. However, it did cause us serious problems when we had our infamous Gang of Three on the commission. Over the years, we have had many good amendments to the land-use plan that have passed 5-0. With a supermajority vote required, a new prodevelopment Gang of Three could be restrained. Harvey W. Server Key WestProtect the land planI think that many people know that the state Department of Community Affairs, which oversees most development in Monroe County, has been gutted by the current administration in Tallahassee. This means that Monroe County must rely more than ever on the wisdom of our local politicians. Concern over these changes to DCA has led a great number of citizens toward the idea of a four-fifths vote of the County Commission land-use plan changes rather than a simple majority. I think this is a good proposal. Requiring four affirmative votes to change our comprehensive plan would make it less likely that a change thats not supported by the citizens will succeed. Agood example of how this would benefit the community is an episode a few years ago when three previous commissioners decided to amend the comprehensive plan to allow building above 35 feet in Monroe County. This proposal was immensely unpopular. Even with a fully functioning DCA, it was necessary for the citizens to hire an attorney to head these three commissioners off at the pass. I hope the citizens will realize that super-majority requirements are well established in the Florida Constitution and its statutes and also in the U.S. Constitution as a means of protecting certain principles from being tampered with on a regular basis. We can no longer rely on the Department of Community Affairs to protect us from those whose agendas are clearly not in the public interest. Please help us preserve the good work that has already gone into our comprehensive plan. Ron Miller Key LargoSupport the zip lineBy now you have undoubtedly heard the exciting news of the planned Eco-Adventure Canopy Tour (zip line) to be constructed in non-fragile areas of Crane Point. We recently made a powerful presentation to the Marathon City Council. Through its unanimous vote, the council moved the Eco-Adventure Canopy Tour to the next step public hearings in August and September involving the use of federal job creation funds for the project. Monroe County has never been a big recipient of our tax dollars sent to Washington, so finally, this would be a big reversal of that reality. With your support, the Eco-Adventure Canopy Tour can receive up to $750,000 in critically needed construction dollars from Washington. To receive this federal award, Crane Point must create a minimum number of permanent jobs. We are proud to say we are projecting 22 new jobs in the first year and nearly 30 in year two. Using the most conservative projections, we expect about 16,500 visitors in year one and 23,500 in year two. Finally, critically needed receipts from the operation of the Eco-Adventure Canopy Tour would provide Crane Point a solid, sustainable revenue stream that would allow for expansion of our educational programs, museum enhancements and costs related to maintaining and preserving Crane Point. We need your help. The Web site www.cranepoint.net/zipline.html will take you to a page on Crane Points site where you can automatically send a message of support to each of our City Council members. Please enter your name and date and click submit. The timeline is short. Audrey Moir Executive director Crane Point MarathonRelay teams uniteThe Relay for Life teams in the Middle Keys finished their last car wash this past weekend. All 30 teams had a representative attend at least one car wash. Teams from Key Colony Beach and Big Pine Key joined our challenge. These Relay teams didnt have to partake in the endeavor since its not part of the Relay commitment; they worked because we asked them to. I am proud of each team and each team member. I am very proud to be a part of such a major organization (the American Cancer Society) saving lives through research and services. The community stepped up to the plate and allowed us to scrub their autos, trucks and buses (many werent even dirty) for the Marathon Community Parks sod. Thanks to Iberia Bank and Kevin Roberts; all money raised went straight to the city. Thank you to the Marathon community for its support, thanks to the teams for their support and thank you to the city for allowing us to use the parks for our Relay needs. We are grateful and respectful of the gift they have given us.Charlotte Quinn Keys board president American Cancer Society MarathonEmergency order to protect rare butterflies concedes that habitat is under stressNothing is more priceless and more worthy of preservation than the rich array of animal life with which our country has been blessed. President Richard M. NixonWhen he signed the Endangered Species Act of 1973, President Nixon moved the federal government into a whole new arena of conservation. Instead of just focusing on wildlife management practices, the law added preservation of habitat as part of a federal mandate. Some environmentalists refer to this landmark legislation as the Magna Carta of the environmental movement. That law was invoked this week under an emergency order in an attempt to save the Miami blue butterfly from extinction; that order, from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, was published Wednesday in the Federal Register. It protects the Miami blue for 240 days while the agency assesses a permanent listing on the Endangered Species List. Once wide-ranging along Floridas southeastern coast and the Florida Keys, this nickel-sized butterfly was reduced to two known colonies, one near the old Bahia Honda bridge in the Florida Keys and the other found in the Marquesas. Dennis Olle, a Miami attorney and member of the North American Butterfly Association governing board, said his group has been seeking protection for the Miami blue since 1999. This weeks emergency rule comes late in the game, Olle told the Keynoter Its taken 11 years and the collapse of one of only two known colonies in the wild. The collapse he refers to is the disappearance of the threatened Miami blue colony that had been holding on at Bahia Honda. Among the reasons for the Miami blues troubles: Loss of habitat. Some might argue, why such a fuss over one little butterfly? (Three other butterfly species the cassius blue, ceraunus blue and nickerbean blue also will receive legal protection from harm because they so closely resemble the Miami blue.) But that comes from the same mindset that countenanced the wholesale slaughter of passenger pigeons, the American bison, whales and countless other species with the argument that commercial benefits outweigh concerns about preservation of unique animals and plants. We proffer a different argument. Think of endangered species as mankinds early sentinels. As we alter the environment and habit around us, those species most vulnerable are the first to face collapse. If we dont recognize those warning signs, we may pay a far larger price down the road all because we didnt listen to what Mother Nature was trying to tell us. Massive efforts to drain wetlands, for example, delivered lots of land for wholesale development over the past 100 years. But its also brought pollution, water shortages, drought and flood cycles and the loss of rare plants and animals. Since the Endangered Species Act took effect in 1973, what started out with 74 endangered species listed now has approximately 1,970. Thats a lot of warning bells. Are we listening? Colonies of both elkhorn coral and staghorn coral were added to the Endangered Species List in 2006. Can we save these precious undersea forests? Sometimes its too late. The Caribbean monk seal, listed as endangered in 1967, is now extinct. It was the only seal known to be native to the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. Bones from the now extinct seal can be seen at Crane Point Hammock Museum in Marathon. Extinction appeared to be the fate for the Miami blue after Hurricane Andrew swept through in 1992, destroying what little habitat remained in coastal areas of Miami-Dade and the Upper Keys. Then, in 1999, an amateur biologist found a colony of Miami blues surviving on state park land near the old Bahia Honda bridge. The second colony in the Marquesas was confirmed in 2006. Today, only the Marquesas colony survives. Lets hope were not too late.Back in 2008,the so-called Gang of Three county commissioners voted to change a development plan that would have allowed a 300-room hotel in the area of Stock Island known as Safe Harbor,shown here.The vote came just minutes after the developers attorney submitted last-minute changes to the plan to expand the project.Ultimately,the Department of Community Affairs nixed it because it didnt comply with the countys land-use plan. This is what is proposed for Crane Point: A zip line.Theyre basically cables strung from platform to platform.Riders are hooked up to them and move to each platform through a pulley system.
Keys Energy Services is bringing back its popular rebate program for the purchase of energy-efficient appliances. The utility, which provides power to 29,000 customers from Key West to the Seven Mile Bridge, has $80,000 available for rebates starting on Monday. Customers are eligible for rebates of varying amounts on the purchase of 14 energy-efficient appliances or improvements. Customers get the rebate in the form of a credit on a future bill, said Keys Energy spokesman Julio Barroso. All but one of the rebates are for residential customers. To see what kind of energy-efficiency standard each appliance must meet, check out the program materials on the utilitys website, keys energy.com Barroso suggests reviewing the specifications before you shop and taking the form with you to the store. Make sure whatever you buy meets the criteria, Barroso said. The 3-year-old rebate program normally starts at the beginning of the fiscal year, Oct. 1, but Keys Energy is starting earlier to take advantage of the Clean Energy grant it received. Under the terms of the $770,000 grant, which will also fund other energy-efficient projects at Keys Energy, the money has to be spent by April 2012. Customers whove received a rebate on a certain item in the past can apply again if theyve since moved to a new place. For details on how the rebate program works and to download an application, visit keysenergy.com starting Monday.

Its been delayed numerous times, most notably for failed negotiations between the city of Marathon and the county for a joint Middle Keys station.County staff recommends the commission accept the fourth-lowest bid of eight received. Thats from Big Pine Key-based Pedro Falcon Electrical Contractors Inc. for $1.75 million.The two lowest bidders made non-conforming proposals, while third-lowest D.L. Porter Constructors Inc. denied involvement in previous litigation with the county even though the county sued the company over work it did at the Gato Building in Key West.County Engineering and Project Management Department Director Kevin Wilson said plans for the Conch Key station are permitted and provide minor renovations to the existing building.There will be a new wing with three vehicle bays and storage area (1,678 square feet) on the ground floor and a second-floor living area (1,746 square feet). It will have a kitchen area and six dorm rooms. The current dorm area will be converted to a station office and multipurpose/exercise room. The renovations and new construction will include additional parking and landscaping as required by current codes and address ADA access issues, Wilson said.The Stock Island fire station is slated to be built on four lots located just off the west end of MacDonald Avenue between 2nd and 3rd streets.

Delaware television station WBOC reported Friday that Jared Adkins, 39, has been released from Baptist Hospital in Miami. No further medical information was available. The father and son were beginning a 9 a.m. drift dive one mile north of Conch Reef when the accident happened, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Two divers standing on the stern dive platform jumped into the water while the vessel was in reverse gear, an FWC accident investigator said in an initial incident report released Wednesday. The divers were struck by the vessel propellers, sustaining severe life-threatening injuries. Drift diving is scuba diving while being carried by the ocean current. During drift dives, a dive boat typically drops divers at one location, follows them and picks them up when they resurface. AU.S. Coast Guard report identified the dive boat as the Big Dipper from the Florida Keys Dive Center on Plantation Key. Aman who answered the dive operations phone Tuesday afternoon declined comment. Most Florida Keys dive boats secure to a mooring buoy or drop an anchor, then shut down the boat engines before allowing divers to enter the water. Before a drift dive, divers may stand at the boat stern to await a command from the boat crew to enter the water when the captain has put the engines in neutral. No information on why the Adkins entered the water prematurely has been released. The incident remains under investigation by the FWC and the U.S. Coast Guard.Reporter staffUPPER KEYSKeys whale calf at SeaWorld now has a nameApilot whale calf that stranded in the Lower Keys in May has been moved out of the critical-care unit at SeaWorld of Orlando. No longer known as No. 301, the 6-foot-long, 900pound juvenile has been renamed: Fredi. Shes in good health, SeaWorld Vice President Fred Jacobs said Friday. She was in quarantine in our new beached-animal rehab pool, but she is now in the veterinary hospital area.SeaWorlds head veterinarian, Chris Dold, said in a July 29 video report that Fredi has made slow and steady progress. Her appetite has very good this whole time, and her activity level has increased on an almost daily basis.On July 23, the pilot whale was the first marine mammal taken into care at SeaWorlds newly completed facility for stranded animals. It was built to care for stranded wild animals while protecting resident marine mammals from disease threats.After her move to the veterinary area, Fredi will be introduced to bottlenose dolphins who can serve as social companions, Dold said.If her condition continues to improve, Fredi will be transported to SeaWorld of San Diego, which has three resident pilot whales. Hopefully that will happen within several months, Dold said.Pilot whale No. 300, an adult with serious medical problems, remains at the Marine Mammal Conservancy facility in Key Largo, where volunteers keep watch and try to exercise her.The two were part of a pod of 23 pilot whales that stranded May 5 off Cudjoe Key. Most died at the scene, but two males were released into the Atlantic Ocean after being deemed healthy enough to survive. Fredi and 300 are the only other survivors.Meanwhile, the MMC still faces code-compliance issues with Monroe County over unpermitted construction and electrical problems. County records indicate that MMC officials were notified this week to appear at a Sept. 29 hearing.On July 18, MMC president Robert Lingenfelser was cited by a building inspector for aiding and abetting [an] unlicensed contractor, a civil infraction that carries a $500 penalty. Arequest for comment has gone unanswered.CUDJOE KEY WHALE STRANDINGSRedevelopment plan no longer needed?Monroe County legal staff and planners say the county can stay out of bickering among shareholders of a Key Largo RVpark, while approval for its redevelopment could be revoked this coming week.Christine Hurley, director of the countys Growth Management department, has recommended to county commissioners that they terminate the development agreement approved in August 2006 with Key Largo Ocean Resort because several key provisions have not been met.Debate has gone on for years over how the 285-unit park, which has been demolished, will be rebuilt. If it is rebuilt, it will be one of the largest redevelopment projects in the Keys.The County Commission is scheduled to vote on the issue Wednesday at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center in Key Largo.Bob Shillinger, chief assistant county attorney, said rebuilding on the 22-acre oceanfront property at mile marker 94.8 could begin almost immediately based on a site plan that was part of the development agreement. The county Planning Commission approved that in 2006.But that plan was submitted by a board of directors that was recalled in 2009, and infighting among the cooperatives almost 300 shareholders has delayed significant progress. KLOR submitted a new site plan after the new board took control in 2010, but the board had attorney Kent Robbins of Miami Beach withdraw the plan this summer. It had not yet been approved by the Planning Commission.Robbins said both the designer of the new site plan, Orestes Lopez-Recio, who is also a KLOR board member, and the designer of the approved site plan, Eduardo Calil, overlooked a possible land issue. Some of the sites waterfront and ocean bottom might have been deeded to the state in the 1960s, he said.Robbins wrote an Aug. 2 letter to county Mayor Heather Carruthers asking to extend the development agreement two years, and allow three more years for KLOR to apply for necessary building permits. He said the extra time is needed to resolve potential title issues with the waterfront and ocean bottom.But Shillinger and Hurley said that issue and how to redevelop KLOR are now internal matters that dont require input from the county.Were trying our best not to wade into that dispute, Shillinger said. Shillinger said the original intent of the development agreement was to bring KLOR into compliance in phases, because the county thought residents would be living in the RVpark as homes were removed and rebuilt. But because so-called life-safety issues were not being resolved, Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia told residents to vacate the park.Park directors then had the entire park razed. That, said Shillinger, is when the county could have washed its hands of the matter. The safety issues are gone, and the reason for doing things in phases was because of safety. Its now incumbent on them to resolve any internal issues, Shillinger said.He said even though Robbins withdrew the revised site plan, the board could soon begin to redevelop the property with modular homes based on Calils plan. Hurley said the board would still need to apply to the county for building permits. The new site plan makes common areas out of the parks original waterfront lots. That has prompted threats of legal action by owners whose homes were on the waterfront, including Calil, whose plan kept the homes on the waterfront sites.By DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comKEY LARGOBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com LESS OF AN EYESOREThe estate that owns the old Hanley property on the bayside of Old Town Marathon has followed through on a promise to spruce up the eyesore at the request of the City Council.

Story, 3B Diversity welcome here Two gay-themed festivals,Tropical Heat and Womenfest,are about to take over Key West.Stories, 10B B Sports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Conchs going nohuddle this yearAs the first week of fall football practice ends at Key West High School, only about 35 red-helmeted players are going through drills, a number that doesnt surprise nor dampen the enthusiasm of coach Jerry Hughes. Hed like to have more players, but hes been around the school long enough to not expect that. Im very satisfied with the 35 we have, he said Thursday afternoon. Theyre working hard as hell. He thought back to his time as a Conch player in the early 1960s and said, We only had 28 or 29 but we had some great teams. Key West High doesnt turn out the caliber of football player it once did, and Hughes, a thoughtful realist in his mid-60s, believes he knows why. I hate to say it, he said, but too many kids here would rather be involved in Duval Street than with the football team. From 1960 to 1990, we had 37 players go on to Division I universities. From 1990 to 2000, there were three. And since 2000? I havent been here the whole time but I think theres been only one, Hughes said, referring to Laurence Poppy Marius, who won a scholarship to Georgia Tech in 2005 but lasted only one year there. Hughes said this years Conchs have two players with Division 1 potential receiver Clive Georges and running back NaQuan McNeill. They will be big parts of a new no-huddle offense, which new assistant James Whalen, a tight end for the Dallas Cowboys (2000-03), has installed. Whalen, who played in the no-huddle as a University of Kentucky star, swears by the system. I caught 90 balls as a senior, he said. To achieve the conditioning the no-huddle requires, the Conchs are running an intense two-minute, non-stop drill up and down the field at the end of each practice. Instead of the defense dictating what we do, we will dictate to the defense what we want to do, Whalen said. Id love to run 60, 70, 80 plays a game. Practice will culminate with a preseason game on Aug. 26 against Pompano Beach at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium.Former Cowboy is taking lead on the offenseKEY WEST FOOTBALL By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorPhoto by BERT BUDDEFormer Dallas Cowboy James Whalen,a new Conch assistant coach,leaps during a field-goal drill Thursday to get across to his offensive linemen that they must block high to prevent defenders who jump to block kicks.Players aware of heat riskUnder the still-hot-at-5 oclock August sun at Key West High School, crunching hits sent bodies flying during a four-on-four goalline drill Thursday that was observed closely by not only the Conch football coaches, but by trainer Richard Fuentes, who was well aware of the perils of practicing in the heat. In light of recent deaths of high-school football players who had been stricken during practice sessions including a 17year-old from Miramar the Key West football staff has been diligent in trying to prevent the unthinkable from happening. It would be over for me as a coach if we would lose a kid because of a heart attack or dehydration, said head coach Jerry Hughes. It would be hard to live with that the rest of my life. And so Hughes has turned to the 30-year-old Fuentes, who recently conducted a seminar for the players. I told them about the symptoms of heat exhaustion and stroke, and told them that they need to stay hydrated, Fuentes said before Thursday afternoons practice. They drink water before, during and after practice. They drink Gatorade that Ive added salt to so they can better retain water.

New guys are coming out every day, said Holly, embarking on his first season as head Hurricane coach. Were growing and getting stronger. About 10 incoming freshmen count in that group, with more prospective varsity players expected to sign up as vacations end and the Aug. 22 school opening nears. Were very happy with where we are right now, Holly said. The guys are working hard. Coral Shores plays its intra-squad Green and Gold Game on Aug. 19, then suits up for the Kickoff Classic preseason game, at home Aug. 26 against Ransom Everglades. The Hurricanes, 2-8 last year, play outside state districts this fall, and have dropped Key West High School from the schedule. The 10-game regular season begins Sept. 2 at Marathon High School.

Coach Lance Martin said that means many of his 24 players will work on both offense and defense for the upcoming season. That includes a core group of linemen in juniors Patrick Ryan and Connor Boyd, as well as sophomores Jonathan Rios, Noel Notta and Chris Paleaz. The best thing about that group is well have them back for two or three more years, so theyll develop, Martin said. Thursday was the first day teams were allowed to practice with pads on, but Martin said hes holding off until next week. The team is preparing to host Miamiarea Center of Life Academy in an Aug. 26 preseason contest. I dont see the need for it right away. I want to teach them a few more things before we put the pads on. The kids retained a lot from the spring, so weve picked up where we left off and I was pleased with that, Martin said. Trevelle Beckford and Tommy Dodamead are battling it out for the starting quarterback job, but Martin said the Dolphins, 3-8 last year, would likely use a platoon system under center. Well play them both, but we really have to get the ball in Trevelles hands asSome players will see time on both sidesMARATHON FOOTBALLBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comSee Marathon,2BSee Upper Keys,2B

Jeffries honed his running skills in Fife, Wash., when he lived there last school year, but will attend Marathon Middle and High School this year. I am very proud of Keygan. The best part ... is that he enjoys running and I hope that he will be able to compete with the cross-country team at [Marathon] while also playing football, his mother Leslie Lindsey said. Lindsey is a teacher at Marathon Middle School and coach of the girls varsity basketball team at Marathon High. Jeffriesdad, Chuck Lindsey, is officer in charge at U.S. Coast Guard Station Marathon.

March of the land crabs beginsWhen the summer grows hot and wet, when the moon glows big and bright, they come out. From coastal lairs dank and dark, they emerge in an eight-legged scuttle toward the sea, waving claws as big as their bodies. On still nights in neighborhoods close to beaches or Biscayne Bay, you might even hear the eerie skitter of hard shells scrambling across driveways, roads and patios. Clickety-clickety, clickety-clickety. Its a sound sometimes punctuated by a sickening crunch-splat when ancient creature encounters modern car. Around every full moon over the next several months, the elusive land crab comes out of hiding on a march toward shorelines across South Florida, including the Keys. The seasonal spawning ritual isnt nearly as massive as it was decades ago, when natives like Jeff Shimonski vividly recall stretches of Old Cutler Road in South Miami-Dade County covered in a stinking slick of crushed carcasses. Carnage and flat tires, said Shimonski, long-time director of horticulture at Parrot Jungle Island. But even with fewer of the distinctive blue-shelled crabs around, the migration remains a curiosity particularly when they come eyestalk-to-eye with suburbanites. March of the penguins, this aint. Nothing about the land crab qualifies as cute, beginning with its dietary habits. Theyre the natural scavengers in this ecosystem, said Shimonski, standing at the soggy border of the Montgomery Botanical Center in Coral Gables, where stands of white mangroves are pocked with burrows filled with pale blue crabs. There were hundreds, packed together as close as stepping stones and some just as large maybe a foot across from pincer to pincer. On a few, the outsized fighting claw would qualify as a jumbo at Joes Stone Crabs. Though primarily vegetarians, Shimonski said, theyll eat almost anything even their own. The rainy summer months light the first spark for the crustaceans, with full moons and rising groundwater levels pushing them from burrows. Spawning often peaks in October and November but Frank Mazzotti, a University of Florida wildlife ecology professor, said there is variability in the timing and size of migrations year to year. When the marches occur, both males and females head toward shallow waters, but as Mazzotti put it, there is no fun involved in the reproductive process. Females, carting eggs tucked under their shells, and males hit the water simultaneously to release their separate contributions. Resulting larvae will move with currents and tides, spending a month at sea before juvenile crabs the small fraction that survive come back ashore. Crabs have plummeted to near extinction in the Bahamas and some Caribbean nations, said Mazzotti, where they are regularly hunted for food. In Florida, the populations are thought to be in decline but crabs still range widely across South Florida and up both coasts toward Central Florida. Thanks to canals, some find habitat well inland though most likely live within a few miles of the coast. Still, theyre considered scarce enough that the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission forbids harvest during spawning season, from July 1 to Oct. 31, and sets a daily bag limit of 20 per person when harvesting is allowed. Mazzotti pronounced the claw meat delicious but cautioned they are an acquired taste. Most people who eat them keep them in pens and feed them corn meal or something similar before consuming them. They arent particularly kind to landscaping, and many residents consider them nuisances and their burrows a backyard hazard. Despite that wicked looking claw, used for defense and feeding, the crabs pose little risk to people who leave them alone. Theyre not predators and they flee from threats. But that pincer is capable of inflicting a serious pinch if a crab is cornered as many a howling dog would attest.Spawn season brings them out of burrowsBy CURTIS MORGANcmorgan@MiamiHerald.comENVIRONMENT School Starts August 22nd!

Then she met a man named Buck Brannaman and decided to make a movie. With no film training or background, she founded her own production company, just so she could tell Bucks story and share his unique approach to horses and people. Brannaman was the model and inspiration for the 1998 Robert Redford film The Horse Whisperer. Nicholas Evans, the author of the novel on which that movie was based: Others have claimed to be the inspiration for Tom Booker in The Horse Whisperer. The one who truly inspired me was Buck Brannaman. His skill, understanding and his gentle, loving heart have parted the clouds for countless troubled creatures. Buck is the Zen master of the horse world. Meehls documentary shows Bucks journey from an abusive childhood, through his foster family experience and on to a highly successful career. Refusing to continue the cycle of violence of his youth, he overcame those early psychic scars and became a tranquil and inspiring horse trainer. The movie follows him from clinic to clinic around the country and showcases his amazing connection with horses. His calm, gentle way with the animals is also reflected in his dealings with people. As Buck says Alot of times, rather than helping people with horse problems, Im helping horses with people problems. And the sense of calm and peace that Brannaman has achieved in his personal and professional life permeates the film. In a recent interview he said, Thats what was really key about this documentary. It shows that were all after the same thing, some sense of peace. Were all trying to figure out how to get through this thing and make our lives as good as we can and maybe make it better for someone else as well. Buck has gotten great reviews and critics are saying that the directors inexperience actually helps the movie because she doesnt impart the typical formula and sentiment so common in Hollywood feel-good films. In January, the documentary was voted the winner of the Audience Award for Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival. And theres even Oscar buzz a pretty good start for a first-time moviemaker. If this wonderful debut is any indication, Meehl should be able to add another winning career to her already impressive resume. And if Bucks principles of respect and trust could be applied to other areas of life, the world just might be a kinder, gentler place. Now thats something I think we could all vote for.Sundance prize winner opens at The TropicFILM Buck Brannamans calm nature captured in documentary film.Craig Wanous KEYS FILM Tasty tails take center stageStart working up your appetite now.

The art stroll and street entertainment begins at sunset and runs for three hours as galleries, shops and restaurants stay open late to welcome locals and visitors. Participating galleries include: Gallery Morada, Pasta Pantaleo Signature Gallery, The Matecumbe Studio, Bluewater Potters, Redbone Gallery. Restaurants in the district offer specials, including The Green Turtle, Kaiyo and Mas Fish Camp. The Turtle, mile marker 81.2, hosts live music from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. with Dave Feder and guest artists mixing for a lively jam session. The Morada Way Arts and Cultural District spans seven blocks, oceanside, centered on both sides of mile marker 81.5 and running from the Green Turtle on the southern end to Kaiyo restaurant on the north end where Morada Way crosses Irving Eyster Road. These Walkabouts began in January and by April attendance had more than doubled. The artists, gallery owners and business people who put together the idea are keen on the ripple effects the street scene with music, entertainment and late gallery hours have made. Alot of locals work the same hours that the galleries and artists do, artist Pasta Pantaleo told LAttitudes last month. So this provides them the opportunity to come out and see the galleries, explore and have fun. Laurie Wickham, whose Gallery Morada represents more than 200 artists and craftspeople, said the Walkabouts enable artists to connect with potential clients, some of whom turn out to be neighbors. This (Third Thursday Walkabouts) enables them to reach more people and make their own community aware of the talent that is here, she said.

Add some well-used naval stores (i.e. rope and such), stir in a little imagination and some potential for loud hecklers on shore and youve got the perfect recipe for Key Largos Anything That Floats Race, Aug. 19-20. Sponsored by the Key Largo Merchants Association, this madcap race on the water is a recyclers dream. Eager entrants are encouraged to scour their yards and docks and friends tool sheds for such things as old bikes, used outdoor furniture, usedup swim noodles, even plastic wrap to augment those empty milk jugs. If it floats, you have a chance. Rules prohibit motors, inflatable rafts, foam or pool toys those give contestants an unfair advantage over the truly handicapped race entrants. And, to state the obvious, race organizers note canoes, kayaks, skiffs or other commercially designed craft will not qualify. The decision of the judges is final. The vessels must be powered by human energy. Your vessel must not be commercial designed or built to travel on water. Racing begins at 3 p.m. both days, but those entering vessels are asked to be at Sundowners no later than 2 p.m. Contestants will navigate a course from the Caribbean Club to Sundowners and back. At sunset, musical entertainment kicks off followed by a fireworks show over Blackwater Sound at 9:30 p.m. Boaters need to meet minimum safety equipment that means wear a Coast Guard approved life jacket and there will be checks at the dock before launching. Since this is a timed race, only one contestant at a time will be trying to beat the clock around the buoymarked course in Blackwater Sound. Any crewmember must be at least 13 years old and all must sign a liability waiver. Participants under 18 must have a signed waiver from their parents or legal guardian. And boat captains are responsible for proper salvage and disposal of all vessels after the race. No vessels are allowed to remain after the race finishes. Prizes will be awarded for Fastest two-person team, four-person team, or unlimited team; also best decorated boat under 18 feet, best decorated boat over 18 feet, best looking crew (in costumes), and the best hard luck story. Everyone that enters and competes is a winner, according to sponsors. The Key Largo Merchants Association is a non-profit organization established in 1989 to host community events. The first year, they sponsored the Key Largo Holiday Boat Parade. Since then, theyve expanded their events calendar with things like the Key Largo Seafood and Stone Crab Festival held in January, the Key Largo Original Music Festival held in May, and the Anything That Floats Race held in August.

Rodgers, a songwriter, vocalist and guitarist performed with The Codewalkers, known for their mix of jazz, rock n roll, blues, bluegrass and funk. Hes also played with guitarist Jimmy Herring (Phil Lesh, The Dead) and Hubert Sumlin (HowlinWolf). Other guests include the Allman BrothersDerek Trucks and Warren Haynes; Phishs Mike Gordon, Susan Tedeschi; jazz pianist Art Lande; Joe Craven (Psychograss/David Grisman Quintet), and violin master Vassar Clements.LagerheadsVirginia-based Mitch Lind and the Lagerheads bring a bluegrass/country blues sound to the Green Parrot at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 14. Then the Parrot hosts ukulele musicians on Monday, Aug. 15. The 9 p.m. performance will feature Tim McAlpine and Jay Gewin, along with Rodgers (yes, he plays the ukulele along with guitar). In terms of improving ones mood and general outlook, I consider the ukulele to be the big gun, Louden Wainright III said. As a professor of Jazz Studies, Rodgers was one of the youngest professors to teach at the Berklee College of Music. Following the same format as the well-attended, high-spirited June and July shindigs, the meeting will begin with a Workshop at 8 p.m. for those just starting out on the ukelele. Basic instruction and chord and song sheets will be provided. At 9 p.m., featured performers take the stage, followed by an open mic and a play-along. It is obvious from the last two months turnout that there is a serious Key West ukulele scene simmering just below the surface, John Vagnoni, Green Parrot manager, said. We also see this as a unique way for Key Westers to meet people and make music at the same time. The Green Parrot is located at the corner of Whitehead and Southard streets.
