On Jan. 24, the Monroe County School Board could approve a no-cost transfer of Glynn Archer Elementary School to the city of Key West for use as a new administrative building.Based on a memorandum of understanding, in exchange for the building, the Monroe County School District would receive space to park buses on city-owned property adjacent to Gerald Adams Elementary School on Stock Island.Since winning his first term in office in 2009, Mayor Craig Cates has pushed for a rehabilitation of Glynn Archer as opposed to building a new city hall at its current location, 525 Angela St.When the Key West City Commission met this week, architect Michael Ingram presented multiple construction schemes for the Angela Street site, ranging from putting a standalone fire station there in anticipation of the Glynn Archer deal, to a brand new city hall, parking deck and fire station.

Officials representing Islamorada and Monroe County pleaded for more money to complete wastewater projects imposed on the Keys as an Area of Critical State Concern. Islamorada officials said the states mandate to construct a central sewer system creates an unfair financial burden on village residents absent significant state and federal assistance. The five-member Village Council tapped Mayor Michael Reckwerdt and Vice Mayor Ken Philipson to go to Tallahassee for the annual briefing before the Cabinet. Their colleagues on the council instructed them during a meeting last Thursday not to threaten to sue the state over the sewer requirement. Several local and county officials consider it an illegal and unfunded mandate that many residents simply cant afford.Countys concernCounty Commissioner George Neugent also spoke to the Cabinet and said the county has done what it can paying for wastewater projects in unincorporated Monroe.A$1.3 billion project is an impossibility with that burden placed on 73,000 residents, Neugent said.Building centralized sewer systems is a part of the Keys responsibility since the islands are designated an Area of Critical State Concern. The state agency that determines Critical State Concern compliance is the Department of Economic Opportunity. Also at the Cabinet meeting, the city of Marathon was allotted 100 hotel-room permits in recognition of substantial progress with its central sewer and stormwater projects. The state decides how many new-building permits can be issued in Monroe.DEO Director Doug Darling said Marathon completed 94 percent of its 2011 work plan, as well as additional tasks ahead of time.Most notably, they have reported to DEO that all connections will be completed by March of this year, he said.Mayor Pete Worthington told Gov. Rick Scott and the rest of the Cabinet that the reward of hotel permits is an opportunity to revitalize the citys economy by converting old mom-and-pop motels into larger resorts.This will bring new job opportunities to the city of Marathon. The city hasnt wavered in meeting our obligations one bit. Every opportunity weve had, weve moved forward, Worthington said.Monroe County has called the permit allocation premature, and county Mayor David Rice again raised concerns Wednesday. The county has said the decision on the permits was made prior to Keys input on a new Department of Environmental Protection hurricane evacuation model.The guiding principles have been to methodically issue 250 units for growth per year. Twelve years ago to maximize the residential portion, we imposed a hotel unit moratorium, Rice said.

Budget miss examinedAreview of district budgeting practices by the Audit and Finance Committee points to errors in charter school enrollment projections that amounted to a $1.2 million temporary budget shortfall.Details emerged following a committee meeting on Monday where member Roger McVeigh pressed for conservative financial planning.When youre budgeting in a situation like this, he said, youve got to budget the cost side at the worst case scenario. Budget estimates are always going to be off. Theres always going to be negative surprises. Youve got to be prepared if youre going to provide quality education to the students.Last month, the school board approved a $1.2 million budget amendment tied to what administrators described as unexpected enrollment increases at Keys charter schools. That amendment dropped the districts reserves below a 3 percent threshold, which forced the superintendent to notify the Department of Education. If reserves drop below two percent, state oversight could result. Committee chair Stuart Kessler said the enrollment projections given by the charter school principals to the district turned out to be amazingly accurate. He said an examination of why the budget was so far off for charter schools . the short answer is (the administration) apparently elected to use last years enrollment instead. Chief Financial Officer Michael Kinneer told committee members that he used the actual enrollment numbers from the previous year, plus another 80 students for the two new charter schools Key West Collegiate School and Ocean Studies Charter School in Tavernier.He did not address whether those calculations included additional grade levels at Big Pine Academy or the Montessori Elementary School of Key West.We were finding that a lot of charter schools would give numbers that were overly optimistic in terms of projected enrollment, Kinneer said. That became the basis for the budget number.Acount of charter school enrollment conducted and published in August by the Keynoter indicated 983 students.When the annual budget was approved in September, the charters received collective funding of $6,272,031.63 based on a projected enrollment of 755 students.In November, a head count showed actual enrollment was above 1,000 students, which Kessler noted was very close to projections provided by the charter principals over the summer. The $1.2 million in additional charter expenditures will eventually be recouped from the state.Focusing in on the ratio of revenue to reserves, committee members agreed they would recommend a School Board policy to hold 6 percent as reserves. Based on the current budget, that would be more than $4 million.School Board Chairman John Dick has said he wont approve a budget this year (for 2012-2013) that doesnt include at least a 5 percent fund balance. Already faced with millions in cuts, committee members admitted its going to be difficult for the district to find additional reductions to fund that 6 percent reserve balance. Its going to be an extremely difficult goal to reach in the current austere environment, Kessler said.Audit committee finds charter estimates offBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comOUR SCHOOLSGlynn ArchertransferloomsNo-cost deal hinges on Tuesday voteBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Keynoter photo by SEANKINNEYSee Glynn Archer,3ASee Cabinet,3AOne Year RespiteCommission approves one-year extension on ferry subsidy for Pigeon Key.Story 4A .Happy AnniversaryKey West turns out Sunday,Jan.22,for 100th anniversary of Henry Flaglers arrival.

Florida lawmakers narrowed their options for state redistricting plans this week but the Florida Keyscongressional seat remains far from settled. Under a draft congressional map approved Tuesday by the Florida Senate, Monroe County would remain in the district now represented by U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.However, a Florida House of Representatives map inching toward final form would move the Keys to a new District 28, an area now represented by first-term U.S. Rep. David Rivera.Both houses of the Florida Legislature are controlled by Republicans, a party shared by Rivera and Ros-Lehtinen. I know nothing about David Rivera and I dont think too many people down here do, said Monroe County Commissioner Sylvia Murphy, herself a Republican. As important as this seat is, we dont want to open a surprise package, Murphy said. Murphy has contacted Florida legislative leaders to voice support for keeping Ros-Lehtinen as Monroe Countys congressional representative. I very definitely would like Ileana to continue to represent us, Murphy said. She is willing to weigh in on issues of importance to our community, and she does know where Tavernier is.We dont know Mr. Riveras track record, the commissioner said. In the past, we have had representatives who totally ignored us, except at election time. The issue of Monroe Countys congressional district in the once-a-decade redistricting process is the biggest question for Keys residents. Florida gains two U.S. House of Representative seats because of population growth. Ros-Lehtinen has said she hopes to continue representing Monroe County since the Keys share many concerns with Miami-Dade coastal areas in her district. Riveras district is based in Kendall and western Miami-Dade, and includes Immokalee and areas east of Naples. Redistricting also will adjust district boundary lines for state representative and state senator, but those changes are not expected to significantly affect Monroe County, said State Rep. Ron Saunders (D-Key West). The Florida Senate passed its proposed maps on a 34-6 vote Tuesday. State Sen. Larcenia Bullard (DMiami), who represents the Keys, voted in favor of the maps. Several other Senate Democrats did not. The Florida House has not yet finalized its three redistricting maps for congressional seats, state house and state senate. Meetings and a possible vote on those maps are expected to continue next week in Tallahassee.Since the maps forwarded by the House and Senate likely will have differences, a conference committee from the two bodies will work on maps for the full Florida Legislature to consider.Starting next Tuesday, Jan. 24, Leon Street from Catherine Street to Flagler Avenue will become oneway with a lane for traffic and another for bicycles. Motorists essentially will no longer be able to turn onto Leon from Flagler. The traffic switch is done in tandem with a $235,000 sidewalk project, which is funded through a federal stimulus grant. At the onset, the oneway designation will be noticed to drivers via a lighted signboard to be put up by the Key West Police Department. The citys Senior Projects Manager Doug Bradshaw said the sidewalk construction is substantially complete, with signage, striping and minor asphalt patching left to be done. In addition to improving traffic flow, city officials have designed the sidewalks to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, similar to an ongoing project on Virginia Street that drew the ire of many neighborhood residents. The Key West City Commission agreed Tuesday that each commissioner would appoint one person to a seven-member committee to consider candidates for the city manager position. Jim Scholl, the current city manager and former commanding officer of Naval Air Station Key West, announced last month, that after five years, he would not seek to extend his contract past the July 1 end date. Mayor Craig Cates was absent from the meeting; commissioners were somewhat split over whether to conduct a nationwide search, or focus on applicants from within the Keys or the state. Commissioner Teri Johnston called the job the most important position in the city. I do not believe the search should be confined to the State of Florida. I think that we need to start going out to resort areas, coastal resort areas, areas that have communities and traits that the city of Key West desires. Commissioner Jimmy Weekley agreed with that position, adding that hed like to see a minimum of five years experience in municipal government and at least a masters degree in public administration. On the other side of the search scope fence, Commissioner Tony Yaniz said, If we can find someone closer to home, Id give that person the nod, everything else being equal or almost equal. I have a knot in my stomach about bringing some guy from Montana down here, Yaniz said, wholl be here for six months, tell me its too expensive, I dont like the heat, this that or the other. Commissioner Billy Wardlow said he also preferred a local candidate familiar with the area and added hed like to see Scholls $180,000 annual salary come down. Commissioner Mark Rossi, serving as mayor in Catess absence, suggested at least a month overlap between managers so Scholl could familiarize his replacement with city financials going into the summer budgeting cycle.

Donations,inlieuofflowers, maybemadetoKhatibBridge Club,500SEPalmBeach Road,Stuart,Florida34996 Replacement courthouse idea shelvedAsprawling new jointuse complex involving various government agencies in Marathon will have to wait a few years. So said the Monroe County Commission Thursday, when it voted to move forward with a $165,000 project to remove mold and asbestos from the already under construction Marathon courthouse near mile marker 48.5. The county was in the midst of a roughly $900,000 project to replace a dated trailer and make numerous refurbishments to the main courthouse when the mold and asbestos were found. Construction was halted on Dec. 27. The discovery led Commissioner George Neugent to suggest razing the courthouse and adjacent building housing a Monroe County Sheriffs Office substation and Tax Collectors Office. The result would be a collaborative effort with the city of Marathon housing the Sheriff and Tax Collector, as well as a courthouse, library and city hall. According to a memo prepared by county Senior Project Management Director Kevin Wilson, a temporary fix while a new courthouse is designed and built would cost $500,000 and last three to five years.Completing the ongoing project would cost between $435,000 and $450,000 and make the building usable for 10 years. The memo says either option requires removing mold and asbestos. The obvious conclusion is to move forward with the renovation, Wilson told the commission. Trial Court Administrator Holly Elomina told the commission 9,000 cases-including traffic citations-go through the Marathon courthouse each year and that the county pays $100,000 rent per year. She proposed a new judicial complex. We are proposing some kind of long-term solution. We owe it to [the citizens of Marathon] to give them a dignified place to do their court business, she said. Acting Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker is based in Marathon and has been operating solely out of the new trailer. Circuit Court Judge Tegan Slaton also holds family court there, while Chief Circuit Court Judge David Audlin holds juvenile and drug court there.Wilson presented three potential scenarios for redevelopment to the commission with estimated cost and square footage requirements. They are: One government center with all Marathon based services for $23 million. This building would be 67,536 square feet and include a Marathon city hall, library, Sheriffs Office station, Tax Collectors office, Monroe County Clerk office, Public Defender and State Attorneys office. It would also include all functions county functions at the nearby Marathon Government Center and Marathon Government Center Annex on 63rd Street. That includes county Fire & Rescue, Supervisor of Elections, Veterans Affairs, Growth Management and Property Appraiser offices. A28,866-square-foot building housing the courthouse, County Clerk, Sheriff, Tax Collector and Marathon city hall. Its estimated to cost $9.8 million.

Areas that could be managed under a pilot boatanchoring program now include the oceanside of Cow Key Channel near Key West.Monroe County Commissioners added the Atlantic waters south of the channel, between Stock Island and Key West, to its proposed list of managed anchoring zones at the boards Thursday meeting. Cow Key Channel is not a good anchorage, County Commissioner Kim Wigington said. Its not a place we want to see people moving.Residents and county officials expressed concern that boaters unwilling to conform to regulations in other managed areas near Key West would drop anchor off Cow Key Channel.All the calls and emails Ive received [about the anchoring program] concern Cow Key Channel, Commissioner Sylvia Murphy said. There is a danger of people moving into it because theyre moving from other areas, Murphy said. Thats borrowing a whole lot of trouble.We have to include Cow Key Channel, Commissioner Heather Carruthers said. It doesnt make any sense if we dont.Commissioners gave county Marine Resources Administrator Rich Jones instructions to proceed with planning managed anchoring areas at Key West Harbor, Cow Key Channel and Boca Chica Basin in the Lower Keys, and Sunset Cove off Key Largos bayside shore. The countys Marine and Port Advisory Committee in late 2011 recommended against including Key West Harbor in the program. As planned, all boats staying in the managed anchoring areas for more than a few days the exact time remains to be specified would be required to show proof of having a septic pumpout, and get a free U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary safety inspection.The county is developing a plan to provide pumpouts to boaters at a nominal cost. Under a state pilot program approved in 2009, Monroe County is one of five Florida coastal areas allowed to draft new anchoring rules on a test basis to cover stationary vessels outside existing mooring zones. As proposed, rules for the test zones would be approved by the FWCs state board for adoption later this year. The zones would expire in 2014 unless extended by the Florida Legislature. The program intends to reduce the number of poorly maintained or abandoned boats that sink and turn into navigational or environmental hazards. Cost of removing sunken derelict boats far exceeds the available funding to remove a significant number of them. Jones will return to the county commission with a draft ordinance for the local anchoring zones. The final rules must be approved by the FWC. Johnston, a consistent critic of the Glynn Archer option, said a School Board vote would set the stage for a final commission decision. We will have something at the Feb. 7 meeting, she said. We will have some pretty clear cut direction so we can make some definitive decisions.Johnston, in discussion with Ingram, noted that inflation was very real and would have a significant impact on whatever project was selected.Ingrams bid for the standalone fire station totals $4.81 million. If Im reading this correctly, Johnston said, illustrating her point, the standalone fire station, fully loaded, compared to the cost of the original estimate, has increased $2.7 million. Various architects contracted by the city have produced cost estimates for a Glynn Archer rehabilitation. Although those numbers are now more than a year old, the estimates start at nearly $20 million. Thats comparable to Ingrams low estimate for a total Angela Street rebuild, with a price tag of $20,975,000; that contemplates simultaneous construction of all elements; phased construction (the fire station then city hall) would drive up costs, he said. Cates was in Washington D.C. on Wednesday for the U.S. Conference of Mayors and unable to attend the City Commission session. On his behalf, City Manager Jim Scholl expressed the mayors support for a standalone fire station on Angela Street and reiterated the need to wait on the School Board. If the commission ends up approving that deal with the School Board, Cates wrote in a letter, it will have a major effect on the Angela Street location. School Board Chairman John Dick worked with Cates to get the measure before the school board, which meets Tuesday, beginning at 5 p.m. at the district offices on Trumbo Road.Per the memorandum of understanding, Glynn Archer would be available to the city between January and June 2013. The 300 students housed there now are awaiting completion of a new elementary wing at the Horace OBryant Middle School campus.Also included in proposal is the stipulation that school district staff will retain access to two of the buildings on the Glynn Archer campus for potential future use.The auditorium would be converted, at the citys expense, into a meeting chamber available for use by the commission and by the School Board for public meetings, per the agreement.Asignificant impactFrom Glynn Archer,1A Saturday,January 21,2012 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com Tell those you LOVE just how you feel with our V A L E N T I N E L O V E L I N E S To be published Saturday,Feb.11 Order deadline is Tuesday,Feb.7 Cost is $17.50 per square To reserve your space: Call us at 743-5551 Or email to lpr est on@k e ynot er .c om J.C.

Meanwhile, Rice addressed DEOs request for a funding plan for the estimated $156 million Cudjoe Regional sewer system by Feb. 29. The countys largest project would take in about 7,000 parcels from Big Pine Key to Cudjoe Key.We can and will raise $50 million by assessing our homeowners. We can raise the second [$50 million] presuming our infrastructure sales tax passes a referendum in November, Rice said, which leaves us just a little bit short. We are requesting the final one third be allocated by the state of Florida, as promised four years ago with the Stan Mayfield grant.At a Jan. 12 Village Council meeting, Reckwerdt said he and Philipson would not provoke the state by threatening legal action, although they would tell the Cabinet that we do not have enough money to do this. Veolia, the company the village tapped to design and build its wastewater system if Islamorada decides to comply with the mandate said it could be done for $98.7 million. But operating it and financing it for 30 years would cost about $224 million, according to documents the company filed with the village. The state [promised] $200 million in the bonds. As of today, none of those have been issued, Philipson said. The $200 million is actually part of the socalled Mayfield grant. It was designated funding for Keys sewer projects, spread out at no more than $50 million per year until the full amount is realized. The Cabinet had almost no questions or comments after Keys officials spoke and unanimously approved DEOs recommendations.Sales tax on November ballotFrom Cabinet,1A Cow Key anchorage comingMONROEBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comThe body of a local homeless man was found Friday afternoon in a wooded area adjacent to a 62nd Street apartment compound in Marathon. Monroe County Sheriffs Office Marathon substation Chief Chad Scibilia told the Keynoter at the scene he is a middle-aged white male well known by local police. He declined to identify the man prior to notifying next of kin. Scibilia said another homeless man that had set up camp in the wooded area found the deceased mans body. Police had the area blocked off with crime scene tape. Along, unpaved driveway off of U.S. 1 leads to the apartment complex. Alarge white cement wall along the highway has the address painted on it. Scibilia said there were no obvious indicators of how the man died. Police had yet to touch the body, he said.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4A Saturday,January 21,2012 Christopher D. Golden, D.M.D.Member American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry,Florida Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry,American Dental AssociationBig Pine Key, FL 305-872-4272 www.keysdentist.comDental problems?Gum Disease to Tooth DecayWe have Solutions County gives one-yearpledgeThe Monroe County Commission agreed Thursday to pay $87,500 to extend ferry service to Pigeon Key through June 2013. It did so despite concerns raised by Commissioner George Neugent about the expenditure becoming an annual expense rather than a one-time outlay. I see no end in sight for this. This is fixing to become a line item. We need to base our decisions with eyes wide open that this could be a forever funding fee. Wed be remiss in not discussing this particular issue, he said. The state Department of Transportation has fully funded the $250,000 per year ferry service since December 2007, when they closed the 2.2-mile Old Seven Mile Bridge to auto and tour-train traffic, citing safety concerns. Ayear later the iconic span, which leads to the historic Pigeon Key offshore, was closed to fishing and is in danger of being closed even to pedestrian traffic. Its a de facto park and important tourist attraction for Marathon and the Middle Keys. The latest DOTestimate to refurbish the bridge, built as part of the Florida East Coast Railway some 100 years ago, is $16 million. Its the only non-water access to Pigeon Key. The DOTinitially said it would stop funding the ferry in 2012, but spokesman Brian Rick says Secretary Gus Pego has committed to fund half-or $125,000-the cost for another year. The countys portion covers 35 percent, while the city of Marathon and Pigeon Key Foundation are each expected to pay $18,750, or 7.5 percent. Commissioner Kim Wigington also questioned the expenditure, making the comparison that government subsidies dont pay for ferry service to Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas. Were providing money for something somebody could make a very good living at, she said. Commissioner Sylvia Murphy called the comparison apples and oranges, saying Pigeon Key is used more for educational purposes and doesnt generate the ridership necessary for privatization. Mayor David Rice said without the ferry the nonprofit Pigeon Key Foundation that operates the county-owned island would fold its tent. Rice was on the foundation board in the late 80s when it took over the island. I can tell you we spent $3 million restoring the buildings on the island, without any cost to the county. Our liability should it fold its tent, for maintenance, will far exceed $87,500, he said. Meanwhile, the commission also approved a pair of other items relating to Pigeon Key: A$105,000 Tourist Development Council grant for a solar array on the island. The total project is $209,652, with BB&Tbank financing half that amount. The foundation will be able to ditch two diesel generators and save roughly $50,000 in fuel each year.

Top lawmaker wants more classes onlineNo classrooms, no dorms, no football stadium, no parking lots. Could an online-only university work in Florida? Rep. Will Weatherford, the Floridas House speaker-designate, thinks so. Thursday, he asked state university system leaders to look into the possibility. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the fastest-growing part of our education system, Weatherford, RWesley Chapel, told the Florida Board of Governors at a meeting in Tallahassee. He pointed to a growing number of students who take online classes as evidence that the prospect already has support. Fifty percent of the states 300,000-plus students took a course online last year, Weatherford said. And that was just the most recent count he could find. Certainly, he said, those numbers have gone up. They want this flexibility, he said. I think theres a way for the state of Florida to give this to them. Weatherford stressed that his idea was a suggestion, and that he did not intend to take any immediate action on it. But he thought it could be a viable option for the states 13th university. Florida now has 11 public institutions, and the Board of Governors has committed to making the University of South Florida Polytechnic its 12th. I would like to just plant that seed, Weatherford said. It seems to have taken root. Board of Governors chairman Dean Colson committed to responding to Weatherfords request. It echoes the boards recent efforts to increase the university systems distance-learning offerings. And State University System Chancellor Frank Brogan said the idea would work beautifully with the boards plans to consolidate universitieslibrary and Web services. Board member Ann Duncan, who chairs the boards Academic and Student Affairs committee, asked Weatherford whether he had an existing model in mind. Not really, he said. Maybe something like the all-online Western Governors University, which began in Utah, but bigger and broader, Weatherford said. Perhaps the University of Florida could head it up. Maybe it would be up to the private sector, or maybe a publicprivate partnership, he said. I almost feel like its limitless, he said. I dont necessarily want to define it. Weatherford reminded the board of the popular Florida Virtual online program for K-12 students. It is the largest state-funded program of its kind in the nation, but its results are tough to track, a recent Tampa Bay Times report found.

Saturday,January 21,2012 5A Keynoter KeysNet.com Proudly Supports the Upper Keys Rotary State audit delayed until maybe MarchIslamorada residents wanting to see the results of a state audit into the villages finances will have to wait until almost spring, according to the a state official involved in the probe. Marilyn Rosetti, an audit manager with the Florida Auditor Generals Office said that at best, the report will be complete by March. Initial estimates were that it would be completed last fall. In October, Rosetti said it would be done by late December or early January. The audit launched early last summer after a successful petition drive pushed by residents Sue and Jay Miller. They collected 1,021 signatures to initiate it. The House-Senate Joint Legislative Auditing Committee authorizes the state to conduct investigations into municipalities finances if it receives a petition signed by 20 percent of that city or towns registered voters. Village officials have said repeatedly that they dont expect the audit to reveal wrongdoing or any significant findings. Islamoradas mayor, Michael Reckwerdt, was even more explicit during last falls budget negotiations, going so far as to say he feels the audit is a waste of time and money. Rosetti said the delay is not because of any complications it has encountered with the village, nor is it because of any findings that warrant more review. The delay is on our end. This is the busiest time of the year in our division as the district school board and college/university audits are going through the review process. They have a required deadline, Rosetti said in an e-mail. Under state law, the village is responsible for paying for the audit when it is done. The Village Council voted to set aside $100,000 for this fiscal year dedicated to the audit. Including Islamorada, there have been nine petition-driven audits in Florida since 1988. Previous audits have cost municipalities as much as $80,000. Whatever the reason for the delay, Islamorada officials are disappointed and want the report released as soon as possible. It continues to hang in the air, and we need to know if there are things that need to be resolved, Councilman Don Achenberg said. Councilman Ted Blackburn, who was among the petitions signatories, shared his colleagues disappointment. We were expecting it literally any day now, he said. We were looking forward to seeing what the results were, and if [the auditors] had any recommendations and, if they did, following through with them. That was kind of the point of the whole thing, Blackburn said. The audit represents the often-hostile relationship that exists between the village government and some of its outspoken constituents. The Millers and several other vocal residents said when they initiated the audit that they simply dont trust where their tax money is going. Of particular concern to the petition signers was money being spent on consultants and attorneys, and how the village was paying for meeting the states centralized wastewater system mandate.Financial investigators: Delay is oursBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreport.comISLAMORADA Airport oversight on agendaThe Marathon City Council is scheduled to meet in regular session Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center. Agenda items include: Adiscussion regarding the possibility of private management at the Florida Keys Marathon Airport. Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay put the item on the agenda and said he wants to reiterate the city of Marathons interest at the Monroe County-owned airport. No matter whos running the airport, I still feel we need to set up a committee with representatives from the Middle Keys and county and make the airport a more viable economic thing for the community, he said. County Mayor David Rice has floated private management as a way to get more efficient operation and a bit more aggressive management at the airport. He said the county would consider its options when Airports Director Reggie Paros retires in June. Asecond reading for an amended law limiting mobile vending operators on private property to two hours at a time and on city rights of way to no longer than 10 minutes. The law gained momentum after City Manager Roger Hernstadt spotted a hot dog stand at the former Seven Mile Motors car dealership at U.S. 1 and 11th Street in July. He was concerned with a lack of regulation and said the city could be inundated with mobile vendors. The law passed, 4-1, on Jan. 10 with Councilwoman Ginger Snead the lone dissenter. She said no mobile vendors should be allowed in the city. Stanley Switlik Elementary School teacher Steve Ferrise and Marathon High School teacher Richard Mangel spoke against the law. Ferrise was going to park his mobile seafood vending cart in the lot at Mangels Paradise Water Ice stand on 107th Street. But the city license never came through and Mangel said he was forced to close the stand after the city delayed Ferrises application. Daffy Dougs Discount Dollar owner Doug Austin argued against the law, saying he rented parking spaces from an adjacent business on U.S. 1 in Old Town to prevent Ferrise from placing his mobile unit there. Austin said hes invested seven figures in his building and established a deli business, and that its unfair to allow someone to park next door and take business away from him. Austin said he employs 17 people and runs his business in a building on the city tax roll.Asecond reading of a unanimously approved version of a law proposed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency that Monroe County is battling to avoid implementing. The law puts the onus on local governments to determine whether some 50,000 parcels of land up and down the Keys contain threatenedor endangered-species habitat. Its part of a 2010 settlement of a 1990 lawsuit three environmental groups filed against FEMAand the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. City officials said theyre comfortable with the settlement agreement and the proposed law because its more densely populated than unincorporated Monroe and has fewer parcels to inspect for potential habitat. FEMArecently extended a Jan. 12 deadline for Monroe County to comply with the settlement to June 30. FEMAhas threatened probation from the low-cost National Flood Insurance Program, which thousands of Keys mortgage holders rely on. Probation would trigger a $50 fee for all policies as they renew, which would cost the roughly 18,000 flood insurance policy holders in unincorporated Monroe County nearly $900,000 in penalties.Aresolution giving final approval to a conditional use for a high-end, eight-unit RV park to the owners of Marathon Marina and Lazy Days South restaurant on 11th Street. Owners demolished six trailers on the .92-acre lot adjacent to the restaurant. City records say the owners have repaired the seawall, installed fencing, built a 6,247-square-foot pool and deck area, and a 1,050-square-foot bathroom facility. Dennis Zecca and his partners also purchased the Flamingo Inn on Grassy Key and transferred eight of its 12 transient building rights to the 11th Street site. The city has a moratorium in place on new hotel room allocations, but was awarded 100 units by the state Department of Economic Opportunity Wednesday because of progress made on citywide sewer and stormwater systems. County and city floating private managementBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONJara doesnt make superintendent finalist listWhen the Palm Beach County School Board on Wednesday selected four potential superintendent candidates, Jesus Jara, the chief of schools in the Florida Keys, was not on the list. Jara was among more than two-dozen initial applicants for the job, which includes a $225,000 annual paycheck and a three-year contract. Before he announced his mainland candidacy, Jara asked board members for a multi-year contract. The response was a possible one-year deal, beginning in January 2013. Last year, Gov. Rick Scott appointed Jara to replace Joseph Burke, himself appointed by then-Gov. Charlie Crist in 2009 (Burke left last summer to head Lee County Schools in Southwest Florida). Burke replaced the ousted Randy Acevedo when Acevedo was charged with felony misconduct and was removed from office. Jara earns $135,000 a year in the Keys. His wife and three children live in Miami; he commutes weekly to a rental home in Key West. The Monroe County School Board in February will begin exploring options for how to conduct a superintendent search of their own. Since Acevedo was last elected in 2008, county voters have changed from electing a superintendent to empowering the school board to hire the districts top administrator.Had applied for Palm Beachs top postOUR SCHOOLSKeynoter Staff


KeysNet.com Keynoter 6A Saturday,January 21,2012 TowBoatUS owner gets lifesaving awardKevin Freestone is just one of more than 600 TowBoatUS operators in the country, but now hes among the elite in that group. Tuesday at TwoBoatUS annual conference in Tampa, the operator of the Big Pine Key TowBoatUS affiliate received the companys Woody Pollack Lifesaving Award. Just four other TowBoatUS operators were similarly honored, one each from Homosassa and Tarpon Springs, and two from Clear Lake, Texas. TowBoatUS says that last July, Freestone responded to a mayday call from a 22-foot boat with six people aboard; the boat was sinking. After communications with the stricken boat fell ominously silent, Freestone searched for and found the swamped vessel. The six passengers were standing in the semi-submersed boat, precariously trying to balance to keep from overturning. Freestone took all aboard and safely returned them to shore and salvaged the vessel. This isnt the first time Freestone has come to the rescue. Back on Oct. 17, 2010, Freestone rescued Karri Larson of Cudjoe Key after a barracuda jumped out of the water and over her kayak, striking her. She suffered a punctured lung but U.S. Coast Guard rescuers couldnt get to her because the water where she was kayaking is so shallow. Freestone heard the radio distress calls and made it into the area to get Larson out. He pulled her onto his boat and transferred her to the Dolphin Marina on Little Torch Key, from where she was flown to Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami. For that, he received the Coast Guards Public Safety Commendation Award.Keynoter StaffLOWER KEYSKevin Freestone (left) receives his award from Capt.David McBride,the U.S.Coast Guards chief of search and rescue, during the TowBoatUS conference.

The railroads end came in 1935 due to financial problems as well as the Labor Day hurricane that year.CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALWhats in a name,indeed?LETTERS TO THE EDITORShare financial painI am a certified public accountant and a practical Republican. But we dont need a CPAto tell us that Americas expenditures cannot continue to exceed revenues. We have done some good work cutting expenditures and that should continue, but we need to raise revenue, too. Britain has used a ratio of three parts of cost cutting to one part of new revenue. That seems about right to me. We look at our paycheck stubs and income tax returns and imagine how we could live if we didnt have to pay taxes. That wont happen; the benefits of living in America arent free. The goal, then, is to share the pain and to keep the pain to a minimum. The first step is letting the Bush-era tax cuts expire. Those cuts are generally referred to as a rich mans tax cuts. The reality is that the Bush-era tax cuts included an across-the-board tax cut of about 3 percent. If we must share the pain, lets have an across-the-board tax increase by letting those tax cuts expire. The Bush-era cuts also included a favorable tax rate for dividends and capital gains. I believe these rates are useful as an incentive, but maybe the rates should be less favorable. Heres a more radical idea: We could raise revenue and also accomplish some of our other goals. We need to minimize our dependence on foreign oil and to protect the air for our grandchildren. Asmall carbon tax, which increases automatically each month, would be a game-changer. Some have pointed out how this tax would overly burden the working poor. An annual payroll-tax credit, for the average carbon tax due from work-related driving, would minimize this problem. Im thinking of a carbon tax rate, which would result in a 1-cent-per-gallon of gasoline increase, each month for 10 years. It hurts me to talk about raising income tax rates. My entire career has been based on legally minimizing my clients income tax bill. But America cannot continue on the current path. We must balance the budget over the business cycle. Americas greatness depends on it. Dennis Martin MarathonZip-line facts hiddenRemember the proposal to construct a zip-line attraction at the Crane Point Museum and Nature Center? If you go to Marathon City Council meetings or watch them on TV, you would be totally unaware of whats happened with that project, which our city has chosen to underwrite by applying for a Community Development Block Grant. You wouldnt know that on Nov. 28 via certified letter, then-mayor Ginger Snead was informed by the Department of Economic Opportunity, the state agency evaluating the citys application for $735,000 to pay for the construction of the proposed attraction, that the application was being returned and needed significant revisions because it didnt fulfill state requirements. You wouldnt know the application failed to include perceived risks and problems. It failed to adequately identify and outline the possible historic challenges presented by the Adderley House restoration. The maps were incomplete on several counts, including a failure to outline the precise locations of all proposed improvements. There were many inconsistencies in the financial figures. The list goes on. Dont feel bad. Youre not alone. As late as Jan. 4, current Mayor Pete Worthington and Marathon Planning Director George Garrett did not know about the letter. The presence of so many deficiencies makes me question the ability of Crane Point to manage a $735,000 grant. Thats a lot of money. And taxpayers would be on the hook if Crane Point fails to deliver on certain commitments. Keep Crane Point Natural, a group opposed to the zip line for financial and other reasons, has published the document on its website, www.keepcranepointnatural.com. Visitors to the site can also view the Crane Hammock Archeological and Historical Resource Management Plan, filed with the state in 2003. In addition, Marathons new floodplain ordinance, passed by the City Council on Jan. 10, is posted. There are many questions about the appropriateness of building a zip-line attraction in Crane Point. The fact that the contents of the states letter were not made known to taxpayers also raises disturbing questions about the transparency of our local government and its future intentions. Beverly Welber MarathonLegislative priorities send the wrong message on jobs,public health, environmental issuesThe state House Economic Affairs committee in Tallahassee met this week. You would think it would take up substantive topics like the economy, job creation, fast-tracking road construction, bridge repairs and other infrastructure needs that trigger employment gains. Nope. Instead it took up a bill that would rebrand the state unemployment office were not making this up from the Unemployment Compensation Program to the Reemployment Assistance Program. There, Floridas unemployment problem solved. We just give it a new name. In that vein, the same committee also took up House Bill 999 this week. That would essentially remove the state from septic-system inspections, passing the buck to counties and municipalities to inspect and/or regulate. Agroup of Panhandle lawmakers are pushing this, arguing that state inspections are too costly. You might wonder at the cost to public health and threats of polluting nearby groundwater, but thats not how the legislative process works. As proof, we offer this bill summary on HB 999 compiled by the Florida News Service: The septic-tank inspection program has been unpopular with a number of rural lawmakers who say the costs are too high. Tea Party groups have also objected, saying the twice-a-decade requirement (for state inspection) would be intrusive. Twice-a-decade intrusive? Well, then, it ought to be intrusive to ensure public health. Faulty septic systems, leaky tanks and played-out drain fields can release coliform bacteria and other pollutants into ground water, causing health risks for more than those who happen to live on the property. Here in the Keys, arguments over septic tanks, nutrient leaks and inspections were decided long ago. Dye packs flushed down toilets in Key Largo subdivisions stained water in nearby canals only hours after the test. Keys property owners are spending hundreds of millions of dollars to install sewage treatment systems to replace drain fields and cesspits (which are even worse polluters of ground water, which leaches right into nearshore waters, imperiling public health, fish habitat and the reefs). Fortunately, this latest push by Panhandle lawmakers to gut the states health laws on septic-tank inspections wont impact the Keys. Acheck with Bob Eadie, administrator of the Monroe County Health Department, confirms the Keysstatus as an Area of Critical State Concern trumps the wrong-headed legislation now being debated in the state capitol. Still, we marvel at those flushing sounds emanating from Tallahassee and wonder what rebranding strategy those North Florida lawmakers will dream up for this stinker.LETTERS TO THE EDITORSigns are welcomeThis is an overdue, big public thank you to Monroe County Public Works, Florida Keys National Wildlife Refuges Manager Anne Morkill and the Deer Protection Alliance officers Alicia Putney and Jerry Dykuisen for finally making our deer-awareness signs a reality along Blimp Road through our Cudjoe Key bayside natural areas. For a couple of years we have requested signs on Cudjoe regarding the presence of our deer. After one large buck was found dead near the shoulder of Blimp Road a little over a year ago, and then when deer signs appeared on Crane Boulevard on Sugarloaf Key, we stepped up our effort. Still no signs. Someone had dropped that ball. I am happy to say that ball was picked up again and around Thanksgiving, our signs came to be at last. Four leaping deer signs call attention to our deer, which do cross Blimp Road regularly. Hopefully some of the reckless and/or speeding drivers will lower their speed to the posted 30 mph or below and watch for deer to avoid them. Another plus is the recent appearance of the share the road sign, important considering the heavy use of Blimp Road for passive recreation (walking and walking our dogs, running, bicycling, etc.). For those who continue to ignore the speed limit, putting our deer, our children and all of us in jeopardy (not the least of the problem being the racing, mostly occurring in the evenings), we ask the Sheriffs Office deputies to deal with them accordingly. Thanks again to all parties involved. Our animals and all us people appreciate what should be increased safety from irresponsible drivers. Tina Henize Cudjoe KeyVote to end gridlockIn Jim Pettorinis letter of Jan. 11, Vote GOPthis time around, he asks if youre afraid. Yes, I am afraid of the groundless, unsubstantiated propaganda that promotes fear and disregards historical fact. He falsely condemns progressives for a variety of sins and ills. Anyone interested in the truth needs only to access facts recorded in the unbiased historical data of the Congressional Budget Office, Census Bureau, Treasury Department and other government sources. His charge that progressives devalue free enterprise is subjective, his opinion. Others may believe that the GOPs promotion of policies that favor big business and the very rich those who can afford to buy the most votes stifles free-enterprise opportunity for the majority of Americans that consists of smallbusiness owners and consumers. Objective data and real historical facts contradict Mr. Pettorinis allegations against progressives (he clearly refers to Democrats). His contention that Republicans have the discipline to commit to a budget fails any truth test since the national debt nearly doubled during the George W. Bush administration. Taxes and trade deficits have decreased during Obamas term. Most of the growing and unsustainable debt resulted from Bushs tax cuts, unfunded Medicare Part D and two unfunded wars. Likewise, the financial crisis, real estate collapse and necessary bank bailout occurred during the last Republican administration. I urge readers to seek objective facts in their quest to make their bestconsidered choices in the upcoming election. Just because something is said or printed does not make it true. Do not forget the condition of our country in November 2008 or why Obama, hope and change and many Democrats were chosen then. To condemn these choices because the damage done during the prior eight years of Republican rule could not be reversed in the first three years of Obamas presidency is unreasonable. Remember, too, that all of his efforts to cure what ails us have been obstructed by Republicans whose stated primary objective is to make Obama a one-term president. Working to solve our countrys problems would have been a much better goal. I have faith well-informed voters will re-elect Obama by voting a straight Democratic ticket to end congressional gridlock and restore progress.

Every day I use Royal Poinciana, the main road in Plantation Key Colony, on my bike or while walking. I am so tired of having to move off the road every time two cars pass each other next to me. Typically, I end up stepping on dog poop. The road is narrow enough for the cars without having to share it with bikes, people walking and kids on skateboards. It is time to get a paved sidewalk down the main street of the subdivision. I sent a letter to the Islamorada Village Council in February 2009 about this problem. At that time, there were 55 kids walking, riding their bikes or being driven by a parent to and from school. I can check with the principles again, but Im sure the number hasnt changed much since. So imagine how many are out there again in the afternoon sharing the road with cars, trucks and school buses. I challenge anyone who disagrees with adding a sidewalk to drive down Royal Poinciana from 2:45 to 3:15 p.m. and observe the chaos that takes place on a daily basis. This is especially disturbing considering the number of young children involved. This past Christmas during the schoolsvacation time, I patrolled Royal Poinciana for one hour. There were nine people walking, three skateboarders, two scooters and 10 on bikes. That was in just one hour when school was not in session. Granted, they were not all children, but the road is well used by all. Somehow the village managed to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a kayak ramp. How many people actually use that? I dont like to assume, but I have to assume that there are more children living in the colony than there are kayak owners who actually use the village-funded ramp. Doesnt it make sense to keep in mind the safety of our citizens, young and old? Im not sure what to do next. Do I need to get everyones signatures on a petition to make this happen? It shouldnt be hard, as almost everyone in Plantation Key Colony would love to see this project happen. Judy Justice Islamorada

Story,3B. B Sports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Dolphins send Westminster team packingThe Marathon High School girls soccer team is making up for lost time this year against perennial District 16-2Apower Westminster Christian School. On Wednesday, the Dolphins (13-9) defeated the Warriors for the third time this season, 5-1, ending Westminsters season in the opening round district tournament. The Dolphinsfirst win came Dec. 14 and was believed to be the Marathon teams first ever win against Westminster. The second came last Thursday, as junior Taylor Konrath scored all five goals in a 5-1 win. It didnt appear the third win would be quite so easy early in Wednesdays district semifinal. The teams played scoreless soccer for over 26 minutes until junior Katie Landry took over the game. Landry quick-kicked a free kick from around 40 yards out with 15:49 remaining after Brandi Spalten was fouled. The ball was perfectly placed over the goalies outstretched arms for a 1-0 lead. As soon as Katie scored the goal it was a momentum shift for the game. After that we settled down and played a lot better. Acouple times during the game [there was] a nice sequence of passes and moving the ball around, coach Lynn Landry said. Just over three minutes later, Landry scored again on almost the exact same shot. This time it was Konrath who was fouled, and Landry sent another free kick over the goalies head for a 2-0 lead. Landry finished off a hat trick in the first half at the 5:38 mark, scoring after a long run down the left sideline into the 18yard box. She beat the goalie in the box, beat another defender and scored to give the Dolphins a 3-0 lead. Coach Landry credited Konrath, who missed on at least two point blank scoring opportunities in the first half, with the goal. Taylor made a run and took two defenders out of the play. Other than that they would have stepped over on Katie. Taylor did a good job making quality runs, he said. The Dolphins led 3-0 at the half, but it was Westminster who came out firing in the second half. The Warriors picked up the pace of play and took advantage of a reconfigured Marathon lineup. At halftime we lost [sweeper Gaby Ceja] to an injury, so we shifted back into a more defensive posture, coach Landry said. That meant Landry dropped back from the midfield to Cejas spot and Konrath was the lone forward on the field. Westminster scored after a scrum in the box with 18:32 remaining to make it 3-1, but Konrath would finish the Warriors off late in the game. Konrath scored with 6:35 remaining, evading defenders and putting the ball on her left foot in the 18-yard box to make it 41. She then won a ball around 30 yards out and beat the goalie on a breakaway to make it 5-1 in the final minute of the game. Marathon was scheduled to host No.1 seed Palmer Trinity School in the district final Friday, but results were not available at press time.

And so it has. The longtime South Florida rivals take the field at 11 a.m. today at host Carrollton School in Miamis Coconut Grove for the right to claim the 16-2A trophy and a home game in the regional playoffs. Weve got a another shot at Gulliver, Coral Shores head coach Arthur Paterson said. Thats all we can ask for. No. 2 seed Coral Shores (15-3) earned its title-game berth Thursday with a decisive 9-1 victory over Terra Instiute, a solid club with the third seed. Striker Jasmine Paterson scored five goals before the contest was halting by the mercy rule early in the second half. Junior forward Iris Dunn scored three goals, and Ellie Leopold scored one. Top seed Gulliver, defending district champion of many yearsstanding, advances after stopping Ransom Everglades, 3-0. As district finalists, both Coral Shores and Gulliver will compete in the state Region 42Aplayoffs beginning Tuesday. Coral Shores has reached the girls soccer district finals repeatedly in recent years, only to be stymied by Gulliver. In their one regular-season meeting Dec. 1, Gulliver topped Coral Shores in a 7-1 game in Miami. In the Lady canesopening round game Tuesday against host Carrollton, Jasmine Paterson scored four goals in about 10 minutes of early action. Most of the starting lineup was lifted well before halftime, the coach said. Mallory Wiecjorek and Danielle Ruiz each scored two goals against Carrollton. Amber Hanson and Ellie Leopold each nailed a solo goal. Paterson said he is encouraged by his teams late-season play that now includes lopsided tournament wins over Terra and Carrollton. Whats good now is that were getting contributions from all over the field, Paterson said.

Other first-round games are at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Winners advance to the semifinal round on Wednesday at Coral Shores. Missed free throws bring loss vs. GulliverCANES BASKETBALLAlate charge by Coral Shores fell short Tuesday, largely undone by missed free throws. The boys basketball Canes outscored visiting Gulliver Prep in the fourth quarter but ended with a 6056 loss. Its a sign of progress. They beat us by 22 points last time [Dec. 8] so this a vast improvement, Hurricane head coach Jay Sanderson said. But were not nearly where we need to be. Coral Shores (4-18) closed to within 58-56 with seven seconds left when leading scorer Alberto Anderson (18 points) nailed two three throws. With the Canes forced to foul, Gulliver (8-8) hit three free throws in the final seconds to finish it. The Canes had their own chances from the line in the fourth, but went 9-of-18 in the 16-point quarter. We were not prepared to shoot free throws and thats my fault, Sanderson said of the 14-for-32 night from the line. Shrugging off a rash of turnovers in the first two quarters, Coral Shores grabbed a 28-27 halftime lead. The Canes went up again, 36-35, when forward Aldon Todd (9 points) scored on a putback at 2:55 in the third. Gulliver answered with a 13-4 burst to hold a 48-40 edge going into the final quarter. Cane reserve guard Darren Govan nailed two jumpers half the teams field goals in the fourth to spark the late rally. Center Will Ismer (15 points) hit a bucket and two free throws in the last quarter. It was the second straight loss where the Hurricanes battled to a close finish against a club that batted them around in the early season. Ascheduled home game Friday against against Archbishop Carroll was cancelled because due to a problem booking officials. Coral Shores will play at Carroll in the regular-season finale on Feb. 3.

Ellis scored 17 of those points in the fourth quarter alone, but the game was already out of reach. Marathon lost 72-52. Coach Kevin Freeman said the Dolphins struggled shooting the ball and committed costly first-half turnovers that helped Westminster build an early lead. We were just out of sync. The effort was there; we just couldnt execute anything, he said. The Dolphins trailed 3219 at -halftime, but a 25-10 outburst in the third quarter put the Warriors up to stay. Freeman said he thought the team would play better against a team it lost to by two points in overtime in the regular season opener. I thought this could be a game wed come in and win, he said. We were confident, but...I havent seen them play like this all year. Ellis had six rebounds to go with his 33 points, and senior Trevelle Beckford had nine points, three rebounds and two steals. Marathon (2-11) was scheduled to host Palmer Trinity School Friday, but results were not available at press time. Lady Dolphins loseThe girls team also dropped a Tuesday contest with Westminster Christian, 51-24. Gardine Raymond led the team with eight points, Jessica Forest had seven, Johnisha Qualls three, and Taja Hidalgo, Yailin Nieda and Cassidy Van Voorst all had two. Marathon (4-11) was also scheduled to face Palmer Trinity Friday. Results were not available.Marathon senior posts 33 points in 72-52 lossBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comDOLPHINS BASKETBALLDefense held Florida Christian in 1-1 tieDespite a thin bench and some banged up starters, the Marathon High School boys soccer team earned a 1-1 tie Thursday against Florida Christian School in its final regular season game. The team went into the game missing defensive stalwart Marco Ceja and goalie Raymond Crespo, and had just two substitutes to choose from. Still, coach Chris Bull said the team made a much better showing than its 5-2 loss to the Patriots on Jan. 10. It was a definite improvement because we lost to that team two weeks ago. I was pleased with the defense and how they played, he said.The Dolphins took an early lead on a Kevin McKeon goal. Anthony Garcia passed a ball across the middle from the left side, and Bull said McKeon took one touch and shot a beautiful shot that curled in the far post for the goal. The Patriots tied the game at 1-1 off a quick throw-in in the 38th minute. Bull said the Dolphins didnt have time to reset on defense and Florida Christian took advantage. The throw-in was deflected near the goal and headed up and over goalie Ramarlo Robertsons hands from the 5-yard line. Bull said the defense tightened up in the second half and Marathon came away with the tie. Our goal was to not let them score [in the second half] and we accomplished that. We had some opportunities up top but didnt convert, he said. The Dolphins (7-9-2) are hosting this years District 16-2Atournament and open play Monday at 4 p.m. against Westminster Christian School. Top seed Palmer Trinity School will play Archimedean Academy at 6 p.m. Bull said the Dolphinsentering the tournament as the No. 3 seed-should be rested for Mondays game. We should go in there relatively healthy with as many players as we can. Theyre confident and in a good place mentally, he said. By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comDOLPHINS SOCCERConch soccer team loses to state champsThe season ended Wednesday for the Key West High School girls soccer team when the Conchs lost to American Heritage, 7-0, in a District 16-3Atournament semifinal game on Heritages field in Plantation. The loss meant that Key West will not advance to the state playoffs for the first time in the 13 years it has been coached by Scott Paul. But the Conchs, who defeated Pompano Beach, 3-1, in a first-round game Tuesday, finished 11-10-1 to prevent their first losing season under Paul. Paul called Heritage the defending state champion which improved to 24-1-1 and is ranked sixth in the country by MaxPreps a semi-pro team.The Conchs, who lost to Heritage, 3-0, earlier in the season using an all-defensive alignment, came out this time with a three-forward setup and put pressure on the Patriots in the first 15 minutes. Kendall Galvan had a one-on-one opportunity from 20 yards but missed the shot, and a perfect throw-in from Lauren Schoneck bounced around for 10 seconds in the middle of the box before the keeper came up with the ball. Heritage led, 4-0, at the half. Against a loaded team like that you have to play your best defense and hustle as hard as you can, and we didnt get that effort out of everybody, Paul said. The goals in the victory over Pompano Beach were scored by Devin Mitchell, Caila DeAbreu and Robyn DeRoche. The Conchs, who for years played in a district where they routinely won games by large margins, struggled against the powers in their new district Heritage, Archbishop McCarthy and Pembroke Pines Charter. The level of competition we took on was fantastic, Paul said. It was great for our freshmen and sophomores, who got a lot of time. It should pay off big next year.Girls end season with 11-10-1 recordKEY WEST Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWCoral Shores guard Darren Govan (2) goes up for a one-handed jumper in a fourthquarter bid to upset visiting Gulliver Prep at home Tuesday.Gulliver held on for the 6056 win.

LivingShark Expo returns for 2nd yearAcelebration of marine science, art and education, Shark Expo promotes shark conservation while raising money for scholarships and support initiatives for Florida Keys Community Colleges marine science program. The second annual expo takes place Jan. 28. Headlining this years event is Fabien Cousteau, renowned marine activist, star of PBSOcean Adventures and grandson of the legendary Calypso captain Jacques Cousteau. Whether you love or fear sharks, its important to respect them and understand the critical role they play in our delicate marine ecosystem, which is so vital to our community, said Dean of Marine Science and Technology Patrick Rice. Shark Expo provides the unique opportunity to have a lot of fun while learning about how to live harmoniously with sharks. The main event, from 6 to 10 p.m. in the Tennessee Williams Theatre on the colleges Stock Island campus, will provide the public with the opportunity to explore the world of sharks. They will get to view live sharkrepellent demonstrations by Rice with a few of the colleges bonnet head sharks. There will also be live and silent auctions. Three feature presentations by marine scientists and shark conservationists will be delivered throughout the evening. The nonprofit organization Shark Savers will premiere its 11-minute documentary Now, More than Ever, Sharks Count, providing a historical perspective of sharkspopulation decline through underwater photography. Shark Defense, a sharkrepellent research and development company, will present the latest shark-repellent technology. Cousteau will close the evening with the keynote presentation, The Great Ocean Adventure. New this year is a morning two-tank scuba dive with Cousteau for up to 20 people at the USS Vandenberg wreck.

Simple steps to save gas, reduce pollutionIf you dont want to save money you spend on your car and dont want to diminish the pollution your car expends then dont bother continue reading. But if you do, weve got some basic facts and helpful hints to lower your costs while being more green. First: Nearly 30 percent of the energy used in Florida is consumed by our 13 million personal automobiles that use about 7.5 billion gallons of gasoline every year. No surprise, since Florida has more registered cars per capita than any other state, with nearly one car for each person. Second: The average Florida automobile is driven more than 10,000 miles a year, burning about 550 gallons of gasoline and costing its owner about $1,200 in fuel (not to mention payments, insurance, service, repairs, tires, tags, license, etc.). Based on a comprehensive analysis, total automobile operating costs for the typical car owner average more than $800 per month. Third: Beyond that, the more gasoline we use, the more pollution we create. For instance, the average car that travels 10,000 miles produces 650 pounds of carbon monoxide, 105 pounds of hydrocarbons, 50 pounds of nitrogen oxides and 12 pounds of particulates. Besides saving on fuel costs and reducing pollutants, lowering automobile fuel consumption will also reduce our states dependence on unreliable foreign oil supplies. So what can you do to save money on your driving costs? Consider the following:Park your car. Walking, riding your bicycle or using available mass transit saves energy, especially on short trips.Increase ridership. Carpooling always saves dollars and makes sense.Combine several errands and auto trips into one longer trip. Share errands with other household drivers.Use the phone to avoid wasted trips.Consider a bus or train for a long-distance vacation. Relax and let someone else do the driving.When contemplating a move, carefully consider how the location will affect your commuting distance to work, school and other weekly errands.Choose efficiencyFor most Floridians and people in many other parts of the country especially where reliable mass transit isnt readily available a car is essential. Consequently, the most important decision you can make is to choose a fuel-efficient automobile. Check out the guide at www.fueleconomy.gov to select the most efficient cars produced over the past 10 years. New cars are not always more efficient than used ones. The guide gives the Environmental Protection Agencys rated mileage, both for city and highway driving. You might consider a hybrid electric-gasoline automobile like the Toyota Prius or Ford Escape Hybrid. Not only do these vehicles get substantially better gas mileage, but they also do extremely well with fuel economy in aroundtown driving. Avoid fuel-thirsty options. These include large SUVs, heavier automobiles, larger engines/higher horsepower and four-wheel drive. Follow these suggestions for improving fuel efficiency:Do not use cruise control for driving in hilly regions, but instead use cruise control for improved fuel efficiency for highway driving. Drive your more efficient car. In households with two or more automobiles, choose the more efficient model for longer trips and more extensive driving.Be aware of fraud. Avoid advertised devices claiming miraculous improvements to fuel economy.MaintenanceAcar in top-running condition will achieve up to 20 percent better gas mileage than one that has not been maintained. Periodic maintenance will improve fuel efficiency and performance.Make sure that your tires are properly inflated. This is one of the most powerful and dependable means of improving fuel economy. Tires should be inflated to the tire manufacturers maximum recommended pressure or the maximum recommended inflation pressure dictated for a specific car model.Keep your car tuned. A well-tuned engine can improve mileage by 3 to 9 percent. Dirty spark plugs, air filters, pollution control valves and motor oil can cut your gas mileage.Reduce wind resistance. Promptly remove luggage or boat racks that will reduce fuel economy. Closed windows at freeway speeds will improve mileage by about 3 percent.Dont store unneeded things in your trunk. Golf clubs, bowling balls and other heavy items belong in the garage, not in your vehicle. Alighter car gets slightly better mileage. For every 100 pounds of extra weight in your car, your mileage will drop by about 2 to 3 percent. Choose energy-conserving oils. The oil you use in your car should have a label that says energy conserving. Such oils reduce engine friction and increase fuel efficiency by 2 to 3 percent over a single-grade oil.Dont use fuel with an octane rating greater than your car requires.

Now, the devices have generated their own disability: Text Neck. The term was coined by a Broward County chiropractor who defines the condition as an overuse syndrome involving the head, neck and shoulders, usually resulting from excessive strain on the spine from looking in a forward and downward position at any hand-held mobile device, i.e., mobile phone, video game unit, computer, mp3 player, e-reader. This can cause headaches, neck pain, shoulder and arm pain, breathing compromise, and much more. People at risk? Those who twist themselves into unnatural contortions in order to use hand-held devices often two at a time. Dr. Dean Fishman came up with the term after noticing among his patients a fast increase in repetitive stress injuries that he traced to hand-held devices. Thats when he created the Text Neck Institute and registered the Text Neck term. His website ( http://plantationflchiropractor.com ) guides people to his practice, but the attention has outgrown his waiting room. Today he offers training for health providers, education, a mobile phone app, online instruction and other amenities. In addition, media around the Web is touting his means of relief and exercises for the disorder.Broward doc coins phrase for problemMcClatchy-TribuneTO YOUR HEALTH


KeysNet.com Keynoter 6B Saturday,January 21,2012 Southernmost City celebrates food and wineMatching world-class wines with talented local chefs, the Third Annual Key West Food & Wine Festival, from Thursday, Jan. 26 through Sunday, Jan. 29, draws devoted attendees from around the U.S. and the world. Richard Tallmadge, festival co-founder, noted that even though the event is only in its third year, foodies have taken notice, and they expect record attendance this year. Weve built a great foundation, and the momentum increases every year, he said. Weve already sold more VIP packages than ever before, and many of the events are going to sell out. You can tell by the buzz and feedback online that its become a highly anticipated event. The festival starts off in true Keys style on Jan. 26 with the Kick off Your Flip Flops Barefoot Beach Party at South Beach, which features island cuisine, wine and music in the light of flickering tiki torches on the sand. The Wine around the Neighborhood Strolls follow, where participants hop on the Old Town Trolley to their choice of the Bight, Petronia Street or Mallory Square areas where select restaurants present samples of their best dishes paired with wine. The strolls are a great way to try new restaurants, Tallmadge said. Its basically a progressive dinner in a select part of town, and all of these little restaurants are just steps from each other. On Thursday, the grand tasting, Turtles and Sharks and Mermaids, OH MY, will be hosted at the historic Key West Aquarium with entertainment by the Fancy Pants troupe. Hors doeuvres will created by four local chefs: Paul Menta, chef and cookbook author; Michael Schultz, executive chef of Fin; Kevin Montoya, executive chef of Tavern N Town; Richard Tallmadge, owner of Coles Peace Bakery and Mark Certonio, proprietor of lush bar. Last year, this smaller event was a favorite of wine aficionados, as vintners and wine representatives brought the best of their collections, and many were on hand to chat with the guests. Sean Sullberg, of Michael Sullberg Wines, was in attendance last year, and said he is looking forward to returning. The people were all very interested in my work at the vineyard, and you couldnt ask for a better location than Key West. In addition to the vintners hosted by the participating wine distributors, Mark Certonio, event director and president, said that he personally reached out to the wineries and invited them to attend. Its always a pleasure to work directly with the people who produce the product, and you want to showcase them, he said. Its important for the public to understand how the wine goes from the farm to the table. Chuck Easley, the winemaker from T-Vine Cellars and Jim Summers, the owner of Summers Winery will both be on hand, as well as managers from Oregon Cubanisimo Vineyards and Clif Family Winery. Certonio added that he was most excited about securing Michel Proux as a guest, who will be presenting the U.S. debut of Orange Colombo, a French aperitif, at Saturdays signature event, Duval Uncorked. Proux has been a revolutionary force in the wine and spirits industry since the 80s when he launched the infamous Absolut vodka ad campaign, which featured paintings of Absolut bottles by wellknown artists, starting with Andy Warhol. Duval Uncorked, the festivals largest event, is a mile-long food and wine tasting down Duval Street with over 44 stops through restaurants, boutiques, galleries and inns. Certonio said that they anticipate a sell-out crowd of 750 people. On Sunday afternoon, the Restaurant Store on Eaton Street hosts a wine market and the Seafood Shakedown competition.

Cooking tents will feature demonstrations on making (and eating) favorite Keys dishes such as conch egg rolls, crab cakes, lobster and conch seviche, grilled oysters and coconut mahi-mahi. Also scheduled are shrimp eating and Key lime pieeating contests. Seafood booths will be serving up stone crab claws, homemade fish dip, conch fritters, chowders, fish tacos and more.

Mil Cretins (A Thousand Fools), his latest work, screens in the Tropics Carper Theater at 6 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 22. A Champagne reception with Pons begins at 5:30 p.m. The movie follows the whimsical and sometimes outrageous reveries of a middle-aged screenwriter visiting his parents in an old-age home. Vignettes, some modern-day and some staged as in a silent film, take the son far away from his parents dreary lives. The Spanish filmmaker first won notice at the Cannes Film Festival in 1978 when his first film, Ocana, An Intermittent Portrait, was shown. Pons was 21 years old at the time. Since that auspicious debut, Pons has made more than 20 films and accumulated scores of awards and prizes. Ocana will be shown at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 22, at the Tropic Cinema. The biographic documentary about transvestite actor Jose Perez Ocana was considered shocking in post-Franco Spain.

Islamorada hosts first Fine Art Expo Jan. 21-22Islamoradas first Fine Art Expo kicks off Saturday, Jan. 21 with more than 60 artists represented along the shadelined streets of the Old Highway. Expo hours run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 21, and Sunday, Jan. 22. The district is located on the old highway between mile markers 81 and 82 (roughly Kaiyos restaurant on the north end and the Green Turtle on the south end). Words in mixed media, ceramics, blown and fused glass, sculpture, woodworking, wearable art as well as paintings in various media will be on display and for sale. Artists are coming from 16 states for this event. Dick Hagood, executive director of the Morada Way Arts and Cultural District, said organizers are hoping to put Islamorada on the map with this first expo and build on that in subsequent years. The juried show includes a wide variety of disciplines, including what organizers are calling performance art. Annie Hickmans Rainforest Creatures will be strolling the grounds, their colorful costumes and studied movements sure to delight kids and adults alike, according to Hagood. The Kona Kai Resort is sponsoring the Rainforest Creatures troupe. And Pastas Pantaleo Gallery is hosting New Orleans jazz performances during the two-day expo. The food available for art show goers will come from the art districts member restaurants: MAs Fish Camp, Kaiyo Grill, Green Turtle Inn, Chef Michaels, Pierres and the Morada Bay Caf. Because the Old Highway will be closed for the event, restaurants are planning to serve both outdoors and inside their establishments. As Hagood points out, this will be one of the few Keys art shows where patrons can dine in a restaurant in the middle of the show. Booths will be lined up along the Old Highway and on Morada Way, which will have a stage set up for live music and other performances. Admission to the show is $5 per adult; no charge for children 12 and under or seniors 65 and older, active military personnel and disable persons with wheelchairs. Theres also free admission for bicyclists, who will enjoy valet parking and free entry for the expo. This also marks the start of a major push to encourage bikes in the art district, Hagood said. Colorful bike racks have already started appearing outside galleries and some businesses in the district. And the district has joined forces with the Islamorada Foundation for Pedaling Art, a fundraiser that duplicates a similar program run last year by The Studios of Key West. Business sponsors pay for a bike thats then decorated by a Keys artist before being raffled off to raise funds for district programs. On Saturday, Jan. 21, Islamorada historian Irving R. Eyster will give a presentation on the Henry Flagler 100th anniversary. Morada Way Arts & Cultural District was formed in 2010 as a community-wide initiative to continue year-round quality cultural programming in Islamorada and the Florida Keys.

Marionettes perched on wooden horses; tiny porcelain birds, flying angels with wings of silk and velvet. The imagery has been described as haunting and emotionally resonant. Visitors will get a chance to judge for themselves Sunday, Jan. 22, at the Lucky Street Gallery, which showcases the work of New Orleans artist Cathy Rose. Rose won first place in mixed media at the Coconut Grove Arts Festival and has work shown at big art festivals in Winter Park, Kansas City, New Orleans and the Sausalito Art Festival. This years Lucky Street Gallery show again features porcelain women and other creatures joined with found objects gleaned from junk shops in New Orleans, flea markets in Paris, and yard sales in Houston. Lucky Street will host a reception for Rose from 14 p.m. Sunday at the gallery, 540 Greene St., Key West. Gallery owner Sandra McMannis said afternoon openings provide a fresh way to see art in the daytime, as well as a welcome break from the rigid weeknight schedule for openings especially during the many competing events during season. In addition to Lucky Street Gallery, Roses work is carried at Bennett Galleries, Knoxville, Tenn., and The Works Gallery, Philadelphia, Pa. Colorado artist Ashley Benton will also be in the spotlight at Lucky Street Gallery through the end of January. Benton describes her painting as less than reality but more than a dream, trying to find the meeting place where dreams overlap with reality. Her mixed media work uses pencil, watercolor, acrylic, paper, and collage elements overlaid with resin, which gives greater depth. She is represented by galleries in Colorado and appeared at the New York City show of contemporary art in 2011. Michel Delgado introduced Benton to Lucky Street Gallery.
