Representatives of the United Teachers of Monroe, the union representing teachers and school-related personnel, initially filed the complaint last month with the Florida Public Employees Relations Commission.It alleges that mandatory unpaid sixand seven-day furlough days for the current school year werent collectively bargained with district officials, who unilaterally decided on the furloughs. The furloughs arent in the contract the union and district ratified in December.The news that a hearing on the complaint will occur comes as the School Board is poised to finalize a dramatically reduced annual spending plan Tuesday after a contentious summer marked by a mandate for the unpaid days off and the privatization of more than 70 custodial jobs.PERC General Counsel Stephen Meck on Friday informed UTM President Holly Hummell-Gorman that the commission will entertain the unions complaint (he dismissed the earlier version of it, saying it lacked specificity).Negotiators for the School District have 20 days to respond; also triggered by the Friday notice is a 30-day period in which an evidentiary hearing is scheduled before a regional PERC counsel.In addition to the complaint on the state level, Hummell-Gorman said UTM has filed three grievancesUnion, administration rancor remains as board preps to approve budgetBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Habitat family foreclosed onAMarathon family in danger of losing its 64th Street home says the Marathon chapter of international nonprofit Habitat for Humanity isnt living up to its name. Adam and Melissa Andersons story is one that thousands of homeowners across the country have to tell: Economic times are tough and they fell behind on mortgage payments. In their case, the cause was staggering medical bills. Now, theyre being foreclosed on by Habitat which is in the business of creating homeownership. Habitat for Humanity of the Middle Keys holds the bank note on the house and the ground lease. The Andersons werent new to income-based housing when they got their Habitat house about a year and a half ago: They managed what are now Middle Keys Community Land Trust-owned apartments on 91st Street for five years when they moved to the Keys in 1999.Lawyer:Action not in spirit of homebuilderBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYAdam and Melissa Anderson and their children Adam,15, Alyssa,5,and Ashley,13,face the possibility of being forced from their home.See Habitat,2ASee Schools,2APolice officer Tases himselfAdog named Buddy stands accused of biting a Key West police officer and apparently being responsible for that officer accidentally firing his Taser into his own leg during an Aug. 24 incident on South Street.I drew my department issued X26 Taser as the dog jumped up and bit into my right forearm, causing the Taser to deploy into my left leg, Officer Curtiss Richardson wrote in his report.It was a significant bite, police spokeswoman Alyson Crean said. Richardson was treated at Lower Keys Medical Center. Buddy, a 5-year-old mutt with some pit-bull characteristics, was expected to be released from the Stock Island animal shelter today after a 10-day mandatory quarantine. Buddys owner, Aaron P. Strickland, 28, was arrested on two felony counts of battery on a police officer and obstructing an officer. They ripped me out of my house, Strickland said Thursday. Im dumbfounded. I didnt do anything. Richard Wunsch, Stricklands attorney, called the entire incident kind of weird. Key West officers were called to a report of a possible domestic disturbance at the South Street home. Once there, Richardson said he heard a female screaming inside the residence. The dog had bitten Jennifer Dent, Stricklands girlfriend, during what Strickland described as playful wrestling around. Richardson wrote that he saw through a window that Dent was bleeding heavily. The officer said he feared Dent was a victim of domestic violence and wanted to talk to her. Strickland refused to open a sliding-glass door, Richardson said. We werent going to go outside, Strickland said. There were two cops standing in my yard pointing Tasers at us. He added: That scared me. Ive been Tased before. Richardson says in the report that Strickland pushed me with his hands into my chest, back away from the door. Aroommate opened a door to an inside room, and Buddy rushed toward the outside door.

Police spokeswoman Alyson Crean said the death of the resident is a homicide. Details were few but police said they received a call about 2 p.m. reporting a possible dead body in one of the apartments. Responding officers discovered the dead man, whose body showed signs of trauma. He also was apparently robbed. They are talking to a person of interest, Crean said late Friday. Hes not considered a suspect at this point in time. Apparently theyve got somebody over there they think might be the person, said Assistant Monroe County State Attorney Mark Wilson, who planned to be at the questioning to superintend whats going on. The 199-unit Senior Citizen Plaza, 1400 Kennedy Drive, is managed by the Key West Housing Authority. Its next door to the DePoo Psychiatric Hospital and across the street from Poinciana Elementary School. Fridays homicide was the second one in Monroe County this year. In May, an elderly Little Torch Key man killed his wife, then took his own life. In 2010, Monroe saw five homicides. Of those, four resulted in arrests, one of which resulted in a guilty plea to manslaughter and 10year prison sentence. Still unsolved is the death of Henry Allwardt, 70, who was shot repeatedly in the bedroom of his apartment on Upper Matecumbe Key in September 2010. Detectives have said they believe the killer was known to Allwardt, who worked as security guard.Police say he was bound with tape; person questionedKEY WESTHomeless disputeThe head of the group that runs the Stock Island homeless shelter says the Key West mayors plan is flawed.Story, 2A Keynoter Staff


Braddock: City wrongNo longer constrained by ongoing litigation, the head of the Florida Keys Outreach Coalition on Friday talked frankly about the disintegrating relationship with Key West officials that prompted his group to back out of managing a homeless shelter.Stephen Braddock is chief operating officer of FKOC, which for seven years has managed the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter at the Sheriffs Office headquarters on Stock Island. He said that despite multiple requests, the city has done nothing to address constant overcrowding and a steadily deteriorating shower trailer at the facility.Meanwhile, city officials are faced with an Oct. 1 management transition for the 120-bed shelter. Theyve turned over the responsibilities of picking an interim operator to the Southernmost Homeless Assistance League, a social-service umbrella organization.Thats happened as staff in City Manager Jim Scholls office is crafting a request for proposals for some group to operate the shelter. Braddock and FKOC Chairman Sam Kaufman criticized initiatives being pushed by Mayor Craig Cates under the auspices of his Homelessness Committee. They include a mobile outreach unit, homeless day center and ordinances designed to further restrict camping in public and panhandling. At this point, Braddock said, to be sure, we have no interest in serving on the mayors so-called committee. We dont agree philosophically with some of the ideas that are being floated. Of the showers, Braddock said: This situation is just unacceptable. Its a safety and health hazard and its demoralizing. As far as overcrowding, Braddock said the facility is above capacity. When winter comes to the North, more homeless come to the Keys, so they expect the situation to exacerbate. We need the city to tell us, When you hit 150, lock the gates and turn people away.We need the city to tell us how to deal with people that have been there for years. We dont set policy for the KOTS. Braddock said the primary goal of FKOC is placing clients in transitional housing to provide stability while they get back on their feet and/or address any mental-health, substance-abuse or similar problems. Thats by way of 122 transitional beds spread between several facilities in Key West; on Friday, 76 of the beds were filled. Braddock acknowledged that KOTS could provide an opportunity to place candidates into other FKOC transitional housing programs, but that it just doesnt happen that way. Weve got a very entrenched population there now, he said of KOTS. We dont see a lot of people transitioning out of the KOTS and coming in to FKOC programs. If you come into FKOCs transitional programs, you have to be program ready. It is not a flop house. KOTS has six full-time and four part-time staffers; total annual costs for 201011 were $354,317; KOTS actually refunded more than $18,000 of what the city allocated. The spending total includes a $50,000 management fee.City spokeswoman Alyson Crean said the Guidance Care Center of the Florida Keys, Catholic Charities and Samuels House have approached the city about taking over KOTS.Braddock wondered aloud if whoever replaces FKOC will become party to a lawsuit filed last month against the city, Monroe County (which owns the land KOTS occupies) and, until Friday, FKOC, which worked out an exit agreement.The Sunset Marina Condominium Association claims the shelter was built in violation of local landuse, zoning and density laws, as well as state and federal environmental permitting regulations.FKOC chief says mayors plan flawedBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comBut malignant melanoma forced Adam, a former ironworker and auto mechanic in Miami, out of work in 2003. Melissa left work to care for him and eventually got a job in 2004 at InSight Health Corp., an MRI unit subcontracted by Fishermens Hospital and Lower Keys Medical Center.The couple and their three children were awarded one of six Habitat for Humanity of the Middle Keys homes on 64th Street in 2008. It cost roughly $175,000 with a no-interest loan to be repaid back to Habitat in monthly $735 installments. Not long after the family settled into the home around February 2010 Melissa was diagnosed with cervical cancer and had a total hysterectomy. Meanwhile, Adam required another surgery. Adam can no longer work because of hearing loss and exposed bone on his left ear, while Melissa was laid off from InSight. They said medical bills of more than $10,000 piled up after insurance had run out, and the family began falling behind on its bills. It got bad enough that in December, Habitat for Humanity of the Middle Keys sued, seeking foreclosure on their home. A letter from Habitat to the Andersons says they owed $5,693 as of September. Its unclear what the total amount owed now is because attorneys for both sides cannot discuss anything that occurred in a June court-ordered mediation session. Habitat attorney Richard Malafy told the Keynoter only that the nonprofit made numerous attempts to work with the Andersons. We did offer, prior to mediation, eight different payment plans to help them get back on track, and none of them were complied with, he said. The Andersons refute that. They gave two and that was it, and they were nonfeasible. And they would not negotiate anymore, Melissa said. She couldnt elaborate because of mediation confidentiality restrictions. Malafy said Habitat doesnt like taking the foreclosure road. Court action is Habitats last resort, he said in a prepared statement. It is important to remember that as a nonprofit entity with limited resources, the failure of one person to make the payments on a home affects Habitats ability to assist other deserving families, as Habitat uses the payments to help fund the construction of additional homes for other qualifying families, he said. Alejandro Uriarte, an attorney for Miami-based Legal Services of the Florida Keys, represents the Andersons. He said hes been surprised at Habitats actions because even private lenders will normally consider a forbearance and roll the past due payments back into the loan. The attitude of the [Habitat] representatives throughout this whole process has certainly not been in the spirit of Habitat for Humanity. No, they arent required to modify the loan, but given the type of loan this is and the purpose of [Habitat], you would think they would exercise more discretion by considering all the relevant circumstances, he said. AFriday hearing before acting Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker to consider a motion for dismissal by Uriarte was postponed until Sept. 15. Melissa Anderson said she doesnt know where the family will go if its evicted.

The proposed amendment (SJR 190), which would have to be approved by voters if it passes by three-fifths in each legislative chamber, was filed Thursday by Sen. Mike Bennett, R-Bradenton. An identical proposal (HJR 21) was filed in the House in June by Rep. Rick Kriseman, D-St. Petersburg. In addition to expanding the length of lawmakers terms, the proposed amendment would increase term limits to 12 years instead of the current eight. News Service of Florida with Superintendent Jesus Jara that require an answer from the administration prior to scheduling arbitration.The last bargaining session between the two sides ended in a UTM walkout. Hummell-Gorman said she has requested further discussion on Sept. 13 and 14, but that district negotiators arent available those days and have yet to offer alternates.Meanwhile, the final of three public budget hearings is set for Tuesday, with a workshop beginning at 3 p.m. and the budget hearing at 6 at Marathon High School. Following the hearing, the board will vote on final approval of the 201112 budget.The budget for fiscal year 2011-12, which began on July 1, contemplates projected expenditures of $80,052,314, down $9,306,846 from the spending plan of the previous year.Perhaps the most controversial cut, more than $1 million in savings, was realized when the board agreed to turn over custodial duties to GCAServices, an Ohio firm; that shifted 74 jobs out of the district and to a private company.The biggest reduction came when Jara, with the support of board members, mandated the seven unpaid furlough days for teachers and six days for school-related personnel like food service workers and bus drivers.That yields savings of about $1.4 million. Also done away with was a planned 1.5 percent raise for all employees, saving $600,000. The budget, prepared by Chief Financial Officer Michael Kinneer, avoids what could have been state financial oversight by keeping general fund reserves above 3 percent of the general fund total. The reserve comes out at 4.29 percent, or $3,213,157. The 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. The tax rate for 2010-11 was $3.8235 per $1,000. That same homeowner last year paid around $1,147 in schools taxes.Hearing TuesdayFrom Schools,1ABills pile upFrom Habitat,1ACouncil to decide whetherbargets OKDisagreement over Marathon Planning Director George Garretts interpretation of the word abandoned is headed for the City Council. Garrett says the former Overseas Liquor & Lounge at 3568 Overseas Highway falls under a 2007 city law banning liquor sales at businesses within 1,500 feet of a school, church or other establishment selling liquor. The advisory Planning Commission agreed at an Aug. 22 meeting. Marathon resident John Foster is under contract to purchase the Overseas building so he can reopen a bar, but Garrett ruled and the planning board agrees that liquor sales are now a nonconforming use for the property because its days as a bar are long gone. So now, if the Planning Commission passes a resolution on Sept. 19 upholding its decision, Foster and his lawyers will ask the council to overrule the decision. Thats different than asking for a variance. The reason why were not applying for a variance is our opinion is there was never abandonment at law or in fact, said attorney Richard Warner, one of the representatives of the estate of Joseph Ardolino, which owns the property. Bottom line is ... the city of Marathon has talented and good people and sometimes they disagree on facts in law. But the estate of Ardolino has gone out of its way to overcome huge impediments to bring that back onto the tax base. Roy and Beverly Dickens last operated the Overseas Lounge and its accompanying package store in February 2008. It shut down after the estate requested an immediate balloon payment of $143,000 on a personal loan Ardolino gave the couple for the liquor license.

Anglers can catch more sea trout but need to kill fewer sharks, state fishery managers will recommend at this weeks Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission meeting in Naples. The state regulatory board also begins reviewing a budget for the next fiscal year that proposes to institute a 10 percent cut ordered by the Florida Legislature. Possible cuts include the possible elimination of 130 agency law-enforcement officers statewide to save about $7 million, and cutting the lobster and crab trapretrieval program by $128,400. Overall, FWC administrators outlined $18.1 million in potential cuts to the agency that manages, regulates and enforces rules for fishing and hunting. Areview of the FWC budget indicates there is very little left in the agency which is not mission-critical, says a staff report to the commission board. It is our sincere hope that little of [possible cuts] listed here need actually be eliminated. In fishery matters of interest to the Florida Keys, the FWC board on Thursday will hear staff proposals on protecting sharks. Tiger sharks and three species of hammerhead sharks (great, smooth and scalloped) all should be added to Floridas no-take list, which now includes 22 shark species, says the recommended action. Tiger shark research in the Florida Keys indicates there may have been a significant decline in their numbers there, where they were once considered abundant, an agency report notes. National studies suggest tiger shark populations have dropped significantly, by up to 97 percent in some locations. The Asian appetite for shark-fin soup has led to increased mortality on big sharks, which are slow to reach sexual maturity and do not breed in large numbers. As a result, shark populations can take decades to recover once they become depleted, scientists reported. Aseries of seven statewide workshops on sharks, including one in Key West, found widespread support for adding the four shark species to the protected list, staff said. Two other shark proposals to require use of circle hooks in shark fishing, and to ban chumming from shore did not get endorsed by FWC staff. Despite some concerns raised by the public about chumming near areas where people may swim, FWC staff said shark attacks remain rare. There is no evidence that shore chumming increases the chances of an attack, a report says. Public comments on requiring circle hooks in shark fishing were mixed, agency staff said. Since circle hooks already are becoming more widely used, the FWC should consider educational efforts to advocate for circle hooks without making them mandatory, agency staff recommends. After FWC commissioners review the shark plan this week, final action is scheduled for the agencys November meeting in Key Largo.Sea troutEncouraging reports on the spotted sea trout fishery could lead to a year-around recreational season on the Gulf of Mexico food fish. Currently, sea trout fishing in South Florida closes in November and December. A2010 stock assessment for spotted sea trout shows spotted sea trout populations are exceeding the FWCs management goal in all regions of Florida, except for the northwest region, a report says. The agency also will recommend extending the season for the small commercial fishery on sea trout. The FWC meets from Wednesday through Friday at the Naples Grande resort.

I told Strickland to secure his dog [but] Strickland made no attempt to secure the dog. Thats when Buddy bit him, resulting in the wound and the accidental Taser fire, Richardson wrote. The dog ran out, Strickland said. I didnt see the dog bite him. Officer Ashlie DeanQuiros said she came around the house and saw Strickland screaming, You tried to Taser my dog! Other city police officers responded to the incident, which they described as a barricaded individual. Strickland, who works as a personal-watercraft tour guide, said he saw a full SWATteam in full riot gear ... saying I had to go downtown to answer questions. He said the police raided the whole house, looking for drugs. There was nothing to find. Were all working people. Strickland stayed inside and called Wunsch for advice. The attorney asked Strickland to give the phone to a police supervisor. I was telling the officer to let me get down there and help figure this thing out, Wunsch said. The officer assured me that no one was being arrested; they just wanted to talk [to Strickland] downtown about the dog bite.

Arraignment has not taken place.Dog owner: OverreactionFrom Tased,1AGarcia arraignment setAMarathon woman accused of trying to kill her 2-month-old girl Aug. 18 is scheduled for arraignment this month on charges of attempted second-degree murder and carrying a concealed weapon. The two charges stem from separate incidents the same day at the Trailerama mobile-home park at 1571 Overseas Highway. According to the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, 19year-old Elizabeth Garcia, arrested Aug. 26, attempted to hit her infant daughter in the head with a piece of concrete stone during an argument with several onlookers. Later that same day, Garcia attempted to recover the baby from a trailer at the same location and was stopped by police. She attempted to remove a large knife from her waistband during a struggle with deputies. Assistant State Attorney Paunece Ramage said Garcia would be arraigned separately in Marathon on each charge. The misdemeanor concealed-weapon charge is scheduled to be heard at 9 a.m. on Sept. 6 before acting Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker. The felony attempted-murder arraignment is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 22, also in front of Becker. The Sheriffs Office was alerted to the alleged crime by the state Department of Children and Families, which received a tip on its child-abuse hotline. Garcias family members reportedly were videotaping her because she was acting irrationally. In the alleged attempted murder, Garcia reportedly said Im going to kill her in reference to her infant daughter. Acell-phone video just over a minute long shows witnesses Orlando and Alexis Mendoza approach Garcia in an attempt to gain custody of the child civilly after Garcia was arguing with others about the baby. But Garcia immediately took the concrete stone and brought her left hand down forcefully in the direction of the childs face, according to the report. It says the Mendozas credited with saving the babys life restrained Garcia and pried the baby from her arms. The report says it wasnt until later that day, around 6:20 p.m., that deputies reported to the same location after Garcia attempted to take the baby from an unknown trailer. She apparently told a deputy to get out of my way and rushed toward the trailer. The report says the deputy restrained Garcia but that she attempted to pull a large knife from her waistband. The deputy struck her left hand, causing her to drop the knife, and took her into custody. Authorities learned of the attempted murder from DCF later that day. Garcia remains in jail at the Stock Island Detention Center on $200,000 bond.Cops:Woman tried to kill infant girlBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONMore shark protection is likelyTigers,some hammers set for no-takeRECREATIONAL FISHINGBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com

Unfortunately, many believe that it is simply the official end of summer, a long weekend that affords one more trip to the beach, a day by the pool or an opportunity to take advantage of the numerous sales and promotions at the shopping mall. It is critical, especially now with so much pain and suffering being experienced by families everywhere, to remind everyone the true meaning of Labor Day because it is here, in this remembrance, that people can find hope for the future. Labor Day was established to celebrate the achievements of organized labor and the role that working people, standing and working together, have had on solving the challenges inherent in building one of the greatest societies in history. Many forget that so many of the things that make our nation great did not happen easily; they are the culmination of years of struggle with women, men and even children placing their lives on the line. Children in school instead of on the factory floor, basic health and safety standards in the workplace, the 40-hour work week and weekends, the hope of retirement with dignity, higher education for more than just the wealthy, home ownership and all of the other features that too many of us take for granted were won through struggle, not simply given. It was working people banding together and demanding these basic rights that built the middle class, the real economic engine that drove our nation to greatness. The harsh realities of the current economy and the seeming inability of our political institutions to address the growing crises have driven millions to despair. It is my hope that through the acknowledgement of Labor Days true meaning and significance, we can find hope for the future. Just as our successes of the past were not easily won, neither will our success of the future. Now more than ever, we need a government that will stand up for working families. Are you ready to join us in fighting for these causes? Are you ready to fight for Florida? Mike Williams Tallahassee Editors note: The letter writer is president of the Florida AFL-CIO.Monroe County Mayor Heather Carruthers and School Board member Robin Smith-Martin are taking part in the inaugural Good Government Initiative, founded by former MiamiDade County Commissioner Katy Sorenson. Based at the University of Miami, the nonpartisan 60-hour program is for elected officials in Monroe, MiamiDade, Broward and Palm Beach counties to learn the nuts and bolts of government in South Florida how to operate within regulations, how to avoid the mistakes of others, ethical and otherwise. It will also include community forums. The 18 inaugural participants started meeting last week, and the Keynoter asked Carruthers what she hopes to get out of it. Following is her response. The Good Government Initiative is like Leadership Monroe County or the Key West Ambassadors program in the way it educates participants about certain issues or areas of South Florida with which we may not be familiar. For instance, I learned a lot about the Miami Haitian community and Haitian history that I just wasnt familiar with. But its different in more ways than similar. It provides a space where elected officials can freely discuss issues in a way we cant with our colleagues (due to Sunshine laws) or without offending some other party or politician. It allows a very free and open sharing of opinions with peers. It allows us to learn techniques to better address challenges. While we might have different subjects, a lot of the challenges are the same (dealing effectively with staff, communicating with constituents, prioritizing goals, etc.). We exchange information about contacts or methods that we can use directly and immediately. For example, I had a long discussion with another commissioner about how to partner with companies that can provide us with energy-efficient LED lighting without having to come up with a significant up-front capital investment. While I had been familiar with this approach, this conversation confirmed for me that the potential savings can be immense. It also allows us to develop problemsolving approaches to common issues without having to consider the particular baggage, politics, personalities and predispositions that may exist in our local communities. For instance, we toured Miamis Overtown, a community redevelopment area that remains blighted and untransformed. We can freely discuss how to move forward in that community without concern that we will be misquoted, without the pressure from (for instance) certain developers who might have a personal interest there. Through that open discussion, we can develop strategies for overcoming the barriers that have prevented such an area from flourishing. Then we can apply those strategies in our own communities. One other thing that people dont always realize: Being in politics can take a personal toll, and there are not a lot of people with whom one can speak about this. The public tends not to be very sympathetic. Aspace like the Good Government Initiative can help us better manage the stress of public office, which will make us better public servants. There are lots of things Id like to bring back to Monroe County from this. I already made some suggestions regarding the presentation of the budget, so there are concrete ideas like that. I hope to learn how to better communicate with constituents, to build consensus when possible, and to be more effective with other government entities particularly the Tallahassee Legislature. I also hope to create stronger alliances with other leaders in South Florida because we all share the same greater economy and environment. Finally, I think this Good Government Initiative will be very important personally, as it helps me coalesce my own beliefs about government and about my role in it, helps me better articulate the things I stand for so that voters will better know who I am. Im really invigorated by this first weekend and look forward to the rest of the session.But a top state senator seems to be playing one with a proposal for more delays down the roadPolitical hubris has a way of growing thicker. As proof, consider the idea offered up by Florida Sen. Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, for a constitutional amendment that would delay election redistricting after each decennial census. Once every 10 years, the Legislature has to redo district boundaries to reflect population changes as determined by the U.S. Census Bureau. Some districts lose population and others gain. Gaetz, who heads the state Senates reapportionment committee, has been hearing a steady drumbeat of complaints about the congressional and legislative redistricting process at public hearings held around the state. Two weeks ago his committee met in Key West and heard gripes about legislative foot-dragging repeated yet again. Maps showing where district boundaries will shift as a result of population changes since the 2000 census were not made available during this summers series of public hearings, so those attending the hearings including the one in Key West really had nothing to comment about when it comes to specifics of new boundaries. The main concern here is that the Keys would be split among two or more districts on either the legislative or congressional level. No one wants that because were already just a small part of larger districts. Could you imagine if we were split into pieces? We would have no political voice. Where the lines are drawn for state House and Senate districts, as well as for congressional districts, becomes a high-stakes political grudge match, especially when the political party in power nudges lines to benefit incumbents. Democrats and Republicans will deny that happens. But few believe those protestations of fairness in how district lines are redrawn. At the current pace, the Legislatures redistricting process and judicial review could mean final maps wont be ready until next June, just days ahead of the June 12-18 qualifying period for candidates seeking state or federal office in 2012. Gaetzs proposed solution to the complaints about foot dragging? He floated the idea of the constitutional amendment that would give the Legislature an extra year to complete the reapportionment process. That wouldnt help speed up the current process but it would if approved by voters give lawmakers an extra year to dawdle the next time. Adding another year of limbo for voters and candidates a decade from now strikes us as a cure worse than the disease of political hubris already inflicted on Florida voters.Politics school is all about solving problems CARRUTHERS Village, Key Largo sewerboard close to dealIslamorada officials decided Wednesday to offer to pay Key Largos sewer district $11.5 million if the village ends up connecting to Key Largos sewer system.Meeting in special session, the five-member Islamorada Village Council agreed to the original terms Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District officials asked for more than a year ago.Adeal depends on the Key Largo sewer board accepting the villages offer, and the village deciding its best option for dealing with wastewater is connecting to Key Largos treatment plant at mile marker 100.5 rather than building its own treatment facilities on the four islands in the incorporated village.The Key Largo commissioners are scheduled to discuss the matter at a Tuesday meeting. Key Largo commissioners voted earlier in the summer to stop discussing a possible agreement with Islamorada, after councilmen made a counteroffer that was millions of dollars less than Key Largos district said it needed to treat Islamoradas sewage. Ayear ago, Key Largo wastewater district officials said it would charge Islamorada $11.5 million over 10 years to connect to Key Largos system, which is nearly completed. In June, the Islamorada councilmen offered to pay $3 million. Key Largo commissioners Charles Brooks, Susan Hammaker and Norm Higgins called the counteroffer insulting, and talks on an agreement ended. But most of the Islamorada councilmen wanted to keep Key Largo as an option for meeting the states mandate that all the Florida Keys have centralized wastewater treatment. Once they heard the reaction, Islamoradas councilmen quickly indicated that their counteroffer was a mistake. On Wednesday, the councilmen decided to meet the $11.5 million original price, with the option of pulling out of the deal in a year if the engineering firm they choose to build Islamoradas wastewater infrastructure says that local sewage treatment would be better and cheaper. Five firms are bidding on the village wastewater construction contract. The council is expected to choose the winner this fall. Although three of the five Key Largo commissioners voted to end talks, the latest offer has a good chance of being approved. Hammaker has favored an agreement with the village, and commissioners Andy Tobin and Robert Majeska firmly support it. Brooks and Higgins have opposed a deal with Islamorada. The offer Islamorada approved on Wednesday would give Key Largo a $1.5 million down payment within 90 days of the village deciding to go forward with the agreement. The remaining $10 million would be paid over 10 years. Though the village built a wastewater treatment plant and sewers for Plantation Key Colony, a north Plantation Key subdivision, Islamorada otherwise has not begun building a centralized wastewater system. The states deadline to sewer the Keys to meet advanced wastewater treatment standards is December 2015. It had been July 2010 but the Florida Cabinet extended it. Key Largo is in the final stages of connecting all homes and businesses outside of Ocean Reef at the north tip of the island to its sewer mains, which use a low-pressure vacuum to carry wastewater to the treatment plant. Key Largos entire project cost around $150 million. A system for Islamorada could come in around the same price, and village officials have only recently begun raising money to pay for it. The Village Council unanimously passed a $20 million property assessment in late July to pay for the preliminary aspects of the project. For that assessment, owners of most single-family homes and condominiums will be billed $3,196. People who want to pay all at once must do so by Sept. 30. Those opting to pay the assessment in yearly installments will have $256 tacked onto their property tax bills this fall. With interest, these homeowners will pay about $6,400 over 25 years. The new assessment excludes residents in North Plantation Key, which has had its centralized sewer system since 2005.$11.5 million over 10 years, $1.5M up frontBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comUPPER KEYSFive firms are bidding on the village wastewater construction contract.The council is expected to choose the winner this fall.

The report, released Tuesday, was ahead of Fridays release of new national data that showed no net increase in jobs in August and a static 9.1 percent U.S. unemployment rate. Consumer confidence among Floridians fell to 62 on the UF index in August, a confidence level only three points higher than the recordlow 59 set in June 2008, according to data compiled monthly by the schools Bureau of Economic and Business Research. Although none of the index components were at record lows, the combined decrease in confidence across all five components is remarkable, Chris McCarty, bureau director, said in a statement. If past history of this index is any indication, we are in, or at least very near, a recession. We are not likely to know for certain until after the fourth quarter. The monthly survey posted downticks among all five of the surveys indices, with respondents feeling less confident about the national economy and their own personal finances over the near term and beyond. Respondents older than 60 years old were most dramatically more gloomy, as their overall confidence rating dropped nine points from July to 57 in August. Their faith in the U.S. economy over the next five years fell by 16 points. Economists said the recent debt ceiling and deficit debates, swings in the stock market and questions over longer-term issues like health care, pensions and the slow pace of recovery may have spooked older respondents. This is no doubt influenced by debt reduction talks, which now routinely include modifications to Medicare and Social Security as part of the solution, McCarty said. But caution was not limited to older people. The survey found younger respondents also more pessimistic about the countrys long-term economic health and more likely in August to hold off on major purchases. While men generally maintained their confidence, womens faith in the national recovery fell precipitously both over the next year and the next five years. The loss of confidence came despite a relatively static picture across the state. Floridas unemployment rate remained unchanged from a revised July figure of 10.7 percent. Housing sales remained steady while the number of foreclosures has tailed off. Housing prices remain low, as do interest rates. The August drop was not totally unexpected. Economists have said Floridas rebound would not be seamless and the road to recovery filled with potholes. Older, younger folks worried about the futureBy MICHAEL PELTIERThe News Service ofFloridaFLORIDAS ECONOMY


The developer of a proposed $10 million assistedand independent-living facility on the Truman Waterfront in Key West this week got a first look at a sub-lease agreement with the city of Key West that, if approved by the City Commission, would move the project forward. The project has been contemplated for around seven years, pushed by members of the nonprofit Florida Keys Assisted Care Coalition. The latest incarnation contemplates Phase 1 construction of a 60-unit assisted-care facility. That would be followed by Phase 2 construction of an independentliving facility. Former plans pitched by the coalition, in partnership with Tennessee-based Family Pride Corp., saw both phases going up simultaneously; thats no longer the case.The total parcel, 4.71 acres, comprises 4.14 acres assigned by the city to the coalition through a voter referendum and subsequent lease, and another .57 acres containing an abandoned diesel generating plant owned by Keys Energy Services.The entire property is adjacent to the larger 33-acre Truman Waterfront, the site of a planned future park. That in mind, the Keys Energy side and the city side of the coalition parcel are essentially bisected into north and south sides by a future extension of Angela Street leading to the Truman Waterfront. Rick Dover, general manager of Family Pride, explained that its easier to obtain financing on a parcel owned by one entity rather than straddling two independently owned pieces of land. Thats why Phase 1 is planned just for the city property and Phase 2 is for the old generator plant. Weve made a decision out of an abundance of caution, and in light of the current finance market and general economy, to make the south side of Angela Phase 2, Dover said. Itd be easier to finance with just one underlying landowner. He said that would be subject to a future agreement to be worked out with Keys Energy. Another change contained in the lease sent to Dover this week by Assistant City Manager Mark Finigan is a further subdivision of the citys acreage, to parcel off .96 acres of the total 4.14 acres to retain as green space. This is not a negotiated position, Finigan said. Weve come to the position that this parcel ... will be restricted to green space that the city will have control over, but it remains in the operation of Family Pride. Thats to make the assisted-living facility compatible to the surrounding park. Phase 1 would consist of a mixture of market-rate, moderateand low-income units rented monthly and inclusive of medical care, utilities and other services. This, in my view, Dover said, is a public/private partnership in the truest sense and its going to provide a service in the community thats desperately needed to all income levels.He said Family Pride, headquartered in Knoxville, would like to bring a sub-lease agreement before the City Commission in the next month.As for Phase 2, the independent units, Dover said that depending on what the community ends up telling us what they want, were going to wait on the second building until we can have some community meetings, operate the first building for a while and see what people prefer.

Its the last hurrah of summer, said Key West Chamber of Commerce executive Virginia Panico. How much business the long weekend generates in the Keys likely will depend on the weather, Panico said. The kids are back in school so people dont plan like they do for other holidays, she said. We still have some rooms open in Key West. But there usually is a lot of walk-in, lastminute business. Labor Day 2010 was a welcome holiday, since it drew large crowds after a summer dampened by the threat of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Last year was a very good Labor Day, Panico said. This year will be more affected by whether the stormy weather lingers. Its a three-day holiday and any three-day holiday in Key West is busier than usual, said Key West spokeswoman Alyson Crean. Officer Bobby Dube of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said marine officers will be on the water as weather permits. Labor Day is right up there in terms of busy times, Dube said. Its one of the big ones, along with Memorial Day, July 4 and lobster mini-season. The state FWC issued a special warning to boaters to remain safe and don life jackets. Unfortunately, around the state, there have been several boating fatalities in the past few weeks, said FWC Capt. Tom Shipp from the agencys Boating and Waterways Section. We are asking boaters to put extra focus on safety to prevent these tragedies. In Islamorada, the annual Labor Day service to remember the hundreds of people who died in the 1935 hurricane begins at 9 a.m. Monday at the Hurricane Monument, mile marker 81.5. Schools and most public offices close for Labor Day. Its important to show our workers that we value their efforts, Panico said. Down here, a lot of our people will be working so others can enjoy the holiday.But weather could dampen the numbersLABOR DAYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comLease near for assisted-living facilityCommissioners could give OK in next monthBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYThe brick building is an old diesel generating plant owned by Keys Energy Services, although developer Family Pride has designs to one day turn it into an independent living facility.To the left of the building is the site of the planned 60-bed assisted-living facility.Lawmakerspush on for drilling banATampa Democrat has filed a state Senate version of a proposed constitutional amendment to ban oil drilling within about 10 miles of Floridas coastline.The proposed amendment (SJR 90), filed Tuesday by Sen. Arthenia Joyner, matches a House version (HJR 23) filed earlier this year by Rep. Rick Kriseman, D-St. Petersburg. It would ask voters to put into the state Constitution a ban on exploration, drilling, extraction or production of oil in Florida waters.There are people still suffering from the big [BP] spill, Joyner said. Do you want to expose Florida to the possibility of another spill but closer to our shore? I just cant believe people want to bring it that close after seeing what happens when its farther out.To open up our shoreline to the possibility of oil is ludicrous, Joyner said. The move, which would need three-fifths approval of both chambers to get the proposal before voters, comes as backers of drilling have again begun raising the prospect of new exploration for both oil and gas to combat high energy prices and reduce American dependence on foreign sources of energy.Just over a year after the BP Deepwater Horizon spill the largest oil spill in the history of the United States Joyner said the push for drilling is regaining strength. She pointed to a suggestion this week by Republican presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann to consider drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico and possibly, in the Everglades. When Bachmann brought it up at a South Florida campaign stop, she was greeted by calls of drill baby, drill.It seems like we need it now more than ever, Joyner said of a constitutional ban. Senate President Mike Haridopolos has said he has no intention, for now, of pushing for new drilling in Florida waters.Haridopolos, R-Merritt Island, was a backer of a bill in 2010 that would have removed a moratorium on drilling in Florida waters, but changed his stance after the BPoil spill.Since then, Haridopolos has said there is a need for new drilling in American waters, but has given assurances that Florida waters, which extend about 10 miles in the Gulf and closer in the Atlantic, would remain off the agenda in the coming year.The moratorium on drilling in Florida waters remains, but nothing would prevent lawmakers from lifting it, which is the impetus for the proposed constitutional ban. Then-Gov. Charlie Crist proposed such a ban in the wake of the spill, but the House refused to take it up. Crist is now, along with former Democratic gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink, a backer of another push to get the idea before voters, a citizen initiative being pushed by a group called Save Our Seas, Beaches and Shores. That Tallahassee-based group is collecting signatures to try to get the issue on the ballot. Its leader, Manley Fuller, conceded Wednesday that it doesnt look like the grassroots group, which relies heavily on volunteers, will be able to hit its mark in time for the 2012 ballot.By DAVID ROYSENews Service of FloridaOIL DRILLING NEWS BRIEFSStanding water remains a problemTwo inspectors with the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District this week found almost 50 percent of homes they visited in New Town and Mid Town Key West not only have standing water outside, but water with the Aedes aegypti larvae, district biologist Coleen Fitzsimmons said.Thats bad because the Aedes aegypti mosquito has the potential to spread dengue fever. It can cause, among other things, debilitating high fever, severe headaches, and pain in the muscles and joints.In 2009, 27 cases were confirmed in Old Town. Last year, there were 66. There have been none this year.Fitzsimmons said that in New Town, 45 houses were inspected and 22 had standing water on the property. In Mid Town, which is the area around the Palm Avenue Bridge, 26 of 61 properties had standing water.Mosquito Control sprays larvicide every other week and Friday was the first time it sprayed the entire island of Key West, not just Old Town, with a larvicide specific to the Aedes aegypti mosquito.If people dump standing water around their homes instead of letting it sit, it can greatly reduce the chances of the mosquito breeding and, hence, spreading dengue.

Parents and fans filled the tiny grandstands in front of fences that bore advertising banners. Red-and-white pennants hung over the bluegreen water. The Conchs (with their individual nicknames grease-painted on their backs) and Dolphins lined the deck at the shallow end to exhort their teammates, who churned determinedly through the various lanes. Key West both its boys and girls teams would prevail, but both sides produced scrapbook-worthy memories. There was Dolphins senior Kyra Simcic-Swanton touching the wall in first place in the 200-yard freestyle race, then smiling beneath her Nautica cap as she looked up at her coach, Sarah Maschal, who was giving her the thumbs-up sign. It was real exciting, Simcic-Swanton said later. It was first time Ive ever done the 200. There was the Conchs Derrick Allen, a sophomore who won the 50 freestyle in 25.9 seconds, edging teammate Zane Osborn by less than a second and no one was happier for him than senior captain A.J. Hally, a sprinter of some renown. Im in shock, Hally said. He was incredible, so quick. Not exactly, Allen said, when asked if he had expected to win his first race as a Conch. I really wasnt aware [of the swim team] last year. It was my first year in high school and I wasnt into sports. But some friends said I should come out for the team. Hally had a typically big day he won the 100 free (53.92) and the 200 free (2:03), and was on the winning 200 medley relay and 200 free relay teams.But Marathon wins its share at FKCC poolPREP SWIMMINGBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter Contributor Photo by BERT BUDDEMarathons Markie Sandusky does the butterfly en route to winning the 200-yard individual medley Wednesday at the college pool.See Swimming,2B TOUGH START TO THE SEASONA front line of (front to back) Taylor Konrath,Jordan Roney and Cassidy Van Voorst prepares to play a ball during Marathon High Schools volleyball match Thursday against Florida Christian School.

Now if only the Canes knew when the season is going to open. Weather cancelled the clubs Aug. 31 opening meet at Gulliver Prep, and the schedule for the next three weeks remains tenuous. Were talking to teams and trying to finalize something for this week, probably Wednesday, said Olsen, coaching the Canes with Mhyria Miller, Coral Shoresbest swimmer in program history. We need to get in the water and race, said Olsen, owner of four Olympic gold medals. Asquad of 30 boys and girls have been training in Upper Keys pools in preparation for the swimming season. Although we graduated a lot of seniors, weve got a lot of returners back, Olsen said. And our freshmen class probably is the strongest weve ever had. The Lady Hurricane side expects to step up with a group of four-year veterans including Taelor Cuppett, Sarah Blackwell and Katie Fry. And freshman Kelsea Volland is expected to use her youthmeet experience to compete in the girls medley and backstroke races. Coral Shoresboys finished 15th at the 2010 Class AFlorida championship meet, the highest place of any public school at the meet. A.J. Hamer, a state qualifier last winter, heads the capable boys team. Evan Zekthi, a dominant youth swimmer, joins the roster to seek a varsity spot in freestyle and butterfly events as a freshman. Weve got some swimmers who can do some big things, Olsen said.

The Lady Eagles rang up a 25-16, 25-15, 25-4 decision on the road at Horeb. All the girls played, said head coach Sheryl Yost. They started a bit nervous, but then settled down. Lauren Montagne assembled a string of 12 straight serving points in the opening game, which she finished with two more serves. In between, Mandy Ledwith served seven points. Trinity Pratts nine straight serving points and Abbey Lindholms six decided the second game. There are 14 girls on varsity this year so Im excited about that, Yost said. We have a good core of returning players, the JV kids from last year moving up to varsity, plus a few new kids. Court veterans Kaylyn Wyatt and Caitlin Reckwerdt do most of the setting while younger players gain experience on the floor, the coach said. I think well have a good season and the girls seem to be enjoying it, Yost said. The Lady Eagles (1-0) make their home debut in Islamorada at 4 p.m. Thursday against the Calusa Prep Colts.First home contest set for ThursdayKeynoter StaffISLAND CHRISTIAN VOLLEYBALLSee Coral Shores,2B Dolphin runners short on competitionAn almost completely new team will take to the course this month for what at the moment appears will be a very brief 2011 cross-country season for Marathon High School. Coach Mike Lettau said only a handful of the 14 runners on this years boys and girls squads are returning from the 2010 group. Everyone else is sort of learning. Were teaching the kids a lot of technique and how to breathe. Its a rebuilding year, he said. The biggest blow to the program will be losing standout runner Naomi Valerdi, whos apparently academically ineligible to compete in 2011. She helped lead the Dolphins last year to their third team appearance in four years at the state Class-1A championship meet in Dade City. Other runners are taking college preparatory classes or playing other sports, Lettau said. The boys team will be headed by seniors Joey Gonzalez and Marco Ceja, as well as juniors Riley Durkin and Ricky Ceja. Sophomore Tommy Peteck, freshman Spencer Peteck and seventhgrader Paul Caldwell round out the squad. The girls team features four seniors: Marina Kay Wiatt, Julietta Pezzella, Yana Byazrova and Savannah Phythian. Eighth-grader Gabby Ceja and seventhgrader Takara McKnight are the other two runners. Our kids are really positive; its a fun group, which is always good. With a young team if we keep them for a few years theyll be running good. Theres a lot of potential, Lettau said. Lettau recently traveled to Miami for a district scheduling meeting, but said budget cuts are making it difficult for mainland teams to travel to the Keys. The team will host just one home meet at Sombrero Country Club this season. We go three weeks in October without a meet, Lettau said. Were going to try to pick one up in Key West. The team is scheduled to run just six meets this season, starting with a Sept. 13 visit to Coral Shores High School. That meet is scheduled for 4 p.m.Budget cuts cutting short teamstravelMARATHON CROSS COUNTRYBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comS.L.A.M. brings out the celebritiesMajor League Baseball Hall of Famer Wade Boggs and former Denver Broncos football player Mark Cooper are expected to return to the Keys for some serious angling during the Robert James Sales S.L.A.M.

There was Conch senior Vincent Wassylenko winning the 500 free in 6:29 19 seconds faster than Marathons Aaron Grube, who is in his third year on the team but only a freshman. It takes a lot of practice, Wassylenko said. Coach Lori [Bosco] has helped me a lot with my stroke. Most swimmers dont like the 500, but I like the way my muscles feel when Im done. I like to feel the pain. Alittle later, Wassylenko shrugged off the pain to win the 100 backstroke in 1:14. He was also on the winning 200 medley relay and 400 free relay teams. Other individual Key West winners were Key Wests Dora DeMaria (first in the 500 free, first in the 100 breaststroke; sophomore Madison Nasser (first in the 100 butterfly); junior Alice Tallmadge (first in the 200 back); freshman Chris Bujak (first in the boys 200 IM, first in the 100 fly); and sophomore Henry Fairbank (first in the 100 breast).

Here are a few recent arrivals:Unlikely Friendships by Jennifer S. Holland (Workman Publishing). The bond between animals that shouldnt bond a leopard and a cow, an iguana and some cats, a pit bull, Siamese cat and some chicks is explored by Holland, a senior writer for National Geographic. These 47 stories detail how some of the animal kingdoms oddest couples have adopted or befriended one another. Throw in some amazing photos, and you have a 210-page treasure for animal lovers.Rubys Tale: ATrue Rags to Riches Story by Patrick Bettendorf (Beavers Pond Press). The journey of Ruby, a brindle pit bull mix who was found emaciated and abandoned as a pup, is worthy of Hollywood. Its a story of rebirth and love that we can all learn from. The dog no one wanted was rescued in 2003 by Bettendorf, an actor, radio personality and screenwriter, and his wife, Lynn, both longtime dog people and shelter volunteers in St. Paul, Minn. Ruby has turned out to be nothing short of spectacular loving, intelligent, personable and devoted. She is also a dog with a mission. She became a therapy dog and later a service dog. Her cause has taken her all over the country. Hers has been an amazing story of redemption and survival (in addition to her dismal start in life, there was also a 2009 bout with cancer from which she has recovered).Perfect Puppy in 7 Days: How To Start Your Puppy Off Right by Sophia Yin (CattleDog Publishing). Yin, a veterinarian and experienced trainer, gives puppy owners everything they need to train their new family member. Much of what is here is not revolutionary, but Yin does a great job covering different aspects of training. She is helped greatly by 400 photos. Can you have a perfect puppy in a week? Yins book will make you want to try.The Secret Life of Your Cat: Unlock the Mysteries of Your Pets Behavior by Vicky Halls (Firefly Books). Maybe this is the book every Im not a cat person person needs to read. Halls, a cat behaviorist and an author of several books on cat behavior, looks at the makeup of felines, their physical attributes (five toes on the front feet, four on the rear paws) and explains how to make life with the domestic cat more fulfilling, more fun. She packs an incredible amount of useful information into 208 pages. Even noncat people will be entertained and educated.Complete Cat Care by Bruce Fogle (Mitchell Beazley). Veterinarian Fogle gives cat owners a thorough and informative book. He starts with a history of the domestic cat, then explains the various breeds. Once the reader has the background info, Fogle discusses the ins and outs of cat ownership, answering health and behavioral questions, and devoting more than 40 pages to training cats. Whether youre considering getting a cat or are an old hand at having one around the house, Complete Cat Care is a worthwhile addition to any pet library.Instructional and sappy all at same timeMiami HeraldTHE BOOK SHELF

To help attract tourism during this off season, a group of business owners and friends organized the Key West Business Guild in 1978. Their mission: grow the gay and lesbian tourism market in the Southernmost City. To judge how far their idea has grown, just witness Womenfest, a weeklong series of programs and happenings that kickoff Tuesday, Sept. 6 and run through Sunday, Sept. 11. Womenfests opening party launches the whole affair 5:30-8:30 p.m. Sept. 6 at the Southernmost Hotels new Pineapple Bar & Pool, 1319 Duval St. Co-sponsored by Centennial Bank and Barefoot Wines, this event is a benefit for Business Guild programs and outreach. Since the initial effort began 33 years ago, the Guild has grown from a handful of members to 350 enterprises. And what started out as a way to attract some shoulder season business has become a year-round marketing effort that last year helped attract an estimated 210,000 LGBTtravelers to Key West. Rebecca Tomlinson, Guild Executive Director: Its incredible how important this (gay and lesbian) market is to Key West year round. The numbers continue to grow and it means millions of dollars brought into Key West each year. The Florida Keys Tourism Development Council (TDC) incorporates a gay-marketing specialist on staff and has won awards for its gay-oriented ad campaigns. In addition to Womenfest, the Guild sponsors Pridefest Key West, Tropical Heat, and the Headdress Ball.

Zukerman tours with well-known musicians including Catie Curtis, Janis Ian, Willy Porter and Susan Werner. Gonzalez, who grew up in Miami, now lives in Los Angeles and has shared the stage with Bonnie Raitt and Jackson Browne. The pair met four years ago at a music festival and have collaborated on shows and even some recordings since. Zukerman describes her music as soulful folk, adult pop, rootsy blues and ballads. An exhibit of their artwork will be part of the show at The Studios, 600 White St., Key West. Were both painters and musicians, and we use a lot of the same sensibilities in both, Gonzalez said. We wanted to do something that would combine these expressions of art into one tour. When the duo decided to illustrate their songs through painting, Art is Song was born. They start with a lyric or an image from one of their songs. Once the image is discussed, either Zukerman or Gonzalez starts the piece. At some point, they switch and the other finishes the painting. The visual representation of songs are captured on canvas, wood and paper. Natalias voice could send an orchid into bloom while her guitar playing can open a beer bottle with its teeth, according to a reviewer for The New Yorker. Doors open at 7 p.m. Sept. 7 to view the exhibition; the concert begins at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $20 in advance, $25 the day of the show and are available at the Armory, 600 White St. or online at keystix.com For more information, call 296-0458.Dynamic duo present art with musicMUSIC Natalia Zukerman Adrianne GonzalezSee Womenfest,9B

An exhibit marking the feat, Flaglers Speedway to Sunshine, remains on display at the Key West Museum of Art & History at the Custom House, 281 Front St. The exhibit also spotlights the 100th anniversary of the inaugural trains Key West arrival on Jan. 22, 2012. Conceived by Standard Oil millionaire Henry Flagler, the rail line was begun in 1905 and was officially called the Florida East Coast Railways Key West Extension. The $430 million line became known as the Overseas Railway because its track stretched more than 100 miles out into open water. Its bridges and viaducts connecting the Keys were regarded as an engineering marvel. The Custom House exhibit features a re-created Florida East Coast Railway railcar, a replica of a section of the Seven Mile Bridge, vintage footage of the journey from the Middle Keys to Key West and a film recounting Flaglers story and the arrival of the first train. Artifacts include a railroad workers tool chest, conductors uniform and other rare items from the collection of Seth Bramson, Americas foremost collector of Florida East Coast Railway memorabilia. Quotes from railroad workers, Key West townspeople and Flagler himself help bring alive the railroads fascinating story.Trains arrival nearly 100 years ago is celebratedKEY WESTPhoto courtesy FLORIDA STATE ARCHIVESThe railroad travels one of the bridges that made up the Key West Extension. Veterans get video medical assistanceJon Yeitrakis used to drive almost an hour each way to see his psychiatrist at the Veterans Affairs hospital in Orlando. Now, the Kissimmee resident and former Marine medic drives eight minutes to a local Veterans Administration clinic. The doctor is still in Orlando. Yeitrakis is still in Kissimmee. But now Yeitrakis attends his 50minute tele-psychiatry appointments over a twoway video system. Although the technology has been around for decades, only within the past few years has it been available to patients such as Yeitrakis. And the VA plans to expand those telemedicine services during the next year. The advantage of telemedicine is that it allows the veteran, or civilian for that matter, to access care in their location, said Nick Ross, assistant director of outpatient clinics and planning at the VAof North Florida and South Georgia. In some respects, telemedicine represents the death of distance. Patients with chronic diseases such as diabetes can now use a device to send medical data to the doctors office from their homes. Then doctors can provide targeted advice over the telephone when necessary. No more drives to the doctors office or long waits in the waiting room. What were seeing is just the beginning of a huge use of technology that is going to have a significant impact, said Ken Peach, executive director of the Health Council of East Central Florida. But telemedicine is not a cure-all. Many of these technologies require a basic Internet connection and often a high-speed, broadband Internet connection. And doctors still have to spend the same amount of time with a patient on a video screen as they would during a face-to-face visit. Patients in underserved, rural communities can save time, but telemedicine doesnt directly address the underlying shortage of doctors in some medical specialties and in primary care. I still only have limited hours to work, said Dr. Kenneth Goldberg, chief of staff at the Orlando VA. If there just arent enough doctors in Florida, that doesnt solve the doctor-hours problem. Avoiding unnecessary visits could alleviate shortages of physicians in some specialties. That shortage is what caused Yeitrakis to try telemedicine in the first place. I thought, well, Ill try anything so I can sleep at night, he said. The 64-year-old veteran said being in a different room than the doctor has helped him speak candidly about disturbing memories. I used to have to patch the guys up when they got shot and get them in the helicopter immediately, and it was a lot of things you want to forget, he said. This new videoconferencing, its a way to release ... its a person, but you dont have to worry about being in the same room with them. Its a lot easier to say what you want to say.VA expanding the program over next yearMcClatchy-TribuneTO YOUR HEALTH
