KeysIslandProperties.com 305-296-1234 FDA takes up dengue bugsFlorida Keys Mosquito Control District Director Michael Doyle says an expert panel convenes next month in the nations capital to discuss the proposed release of genetically modified mosquitoes in Old Town Key West, which he said is encouraging for the proposal.Doyle said during the districts monthly meeting Wednesday that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration appointed him to the panel, which is scheduled to meet Feb. 19 in Washington, D.C.He didnt have the names of other members and what the specific charge of the panel is.But he did say they are taking definite steps to evaluate the potential benefits and risks of the technology, and using known experts from other agencies.ABritish company, Oxitec, breeds genetically modified Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, the dengue-fever carrier that caused a 2009 outbreak of the disease in Key West. The controversial trial would release altered mosquitoes into the wild that carry a gene preventing them from mating. If they do, their offspring would die before reaching adulthood, hopefully causing the wild breeding population to decrease dramatically.County health officials confirmed 93 cases of dengue in Old Town since 2009 but there have been none since. Dengue causes bone pain and related maladies, but isnt typically fatal.The district and Oxitec had long been seeking a federal agency to permit the trial, and found one last year in the FDA. What theyre being asked to approve is beyond the normal human health issues that theyre experts at. Theyre organizing a group of experts in other fields ... toDoyle: Agency convenes panel to look at genetically modified mosquitoesBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROLTwo suicides prompt review of protocolsMonroe County School District leaders are taking a comprehensive look at health and safety issues in Keys schools in the wake of two recent suicides locally and headline-grabbing school violence nationally. National discourse has focused lately on school safety in light of the December massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., where 20 children and six adults were killed before the gunman killed himself. The Keys school community also has been rocked with the Dec. 26 suicide of Adri Stewart, then-principal of the Key West Collegiate Academy on Stock Island, and the Jan. 13 death of 14year-old Key West High School student Matthew Gilleran, who died in a hospital after shooting himself in the head two days earlier. Superintendent Mark Porter told the School Board at a Tuesday meeting in Key West that he is reviewing campus security with law enforcement while simultaneously evaluating each schools method of dealing with bullying education and prevention. One of Porters short-term goals is to have full-time school resource officers Sheriffs Office deputies assigned to schools at all three public high schools and Horace OBryant Middle School in Key West.

They abandoned that animal, said Russ Rector, a former dolphin trainer who now campaigns against dolphin captivity. Nothing anyone did improved the outcome for that dolphin. Erin Fougeres, the National Marine Fisheries Services marine-mammal stranding supervisor for the Southeast U.S., said volunteer responders with the Marine Mammal Conservancy of Key Largo handled the situation correctly, given the circumstances. That is a large animal that is difficult to capture, Fougeres said Thursday. It was out of its [deepwater] habitat but it was swimming and diving strongly. The dolphin was reported Sept. 15, 2012. MMC volunteers who responded included Robert Stevens, a veterinarian and MMC president. We were giving it a couple days to see if it would move on, Fougeres said. It was being pretty evasive. [The MMC] boat couldnt get close. Canals at Ocean Reef can be more than 20 feet deep, Fougeres said, which complicates the capture of an uncooperative dolphin about 11 feet long. It wasnt like they could reach out and grab it, she said. It was being observed and assessed.

Stabbing suspect remains jailedAhomeless Key West man remained in the Monroe County jail Friday in lieu of $150,000 following his Wednesday arrest for allegedly stabbing another Key Wester in the neck.City police say Jerry Fratelli was in front of Shortys Market, 215 Duval St., around 10 p.m. when Reinel Luis Molina Chappe, 37, pulled out a sinister 6inch stainless-steel curved blade resembling a corkscrew and stabbed Fratelli. When questioned, Chappe said he did it because Fratelli was disrespecting him, according to a report prepared by Officer Anna Dykes. Her report says numerous witnesses saw the stabbing and that was also caught on film by security cameras outside Shortys, a deli and convenience store. The video, according to police reports, shows Fratelli dancing in the direction of Molina Chappe in what appeared to be an antagonizing manner. Dykes explained why Chappe is charged with attempted murder: The nature of the attack, the severity and location of the wound and the sinister appearance of the knife would lead a reasonable person to conclude that death would result. In March 2012, Chappe was arrested on an aggravated assault charge and found guilty.Cops:Chappe stabbed man in the neckKEY WEST CHAPPEKeynoter Staff KeysNet.com Keynoter 2A Saturday,January 26,2013 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDA Y HIGH L O W SAT.7767 SUN.7868 MON.7969 TUES.7969 Forecast: Expect partly cloudy skies with a silght chance of showers.

If you want me to step down as secretary-treasurer, Ill do that, he said. According to the police report, Lula Vorick stole approximately $8,180 from the Glunz Ocean Beach Club Resort. It details an Oct. 9 e-mail to resort ownership in which she admits her theft and implies her husband was involved. The e-mail is in reference to a September trip she took to North Carolina.I am so ashamed. I used the company debit card on my trip with [my son] this past summer. I have no excuses except that I wanted [him] to have a fun trip. I also had Jeff sign a check for advance pay and I asked him to use the same debit card for the rental car, Lula Vorick wrote.Jeff Vorick has said he has no work connection to the Glunz Ocean Beach Club Report and was not involved with his wifes work there. Later in the report, Lula Vorick recants what she reportedly wrote in the email. She alludes to health issues that led to her being admitted to the Guidance Care Center in Marathon.My recollection of events during the summer and after Oct. 8 is not clear. I saw the e-mail of Oct. 9 and do not recall writing it. My husband Jeff never signed any checks...Vorick steps down from positionFrom Vorick,1A capture it, it was gone. The body of the Rissos dolphin was found the next day, Sept. 18. Since Rissos dolphins seldom stray from very deep water, Rector said, finding one in a canal should have prompted a rescue. MMC Chairman Art Cooper said rescuers followed NMFS protocol and instructions from federal staff not to attempt a capture before Sept. 17. Legally, we are not supposed to handle a free-swimming animal unless we have direct authority, Cooper said. The animal was out of its habitat but it was swimming rapidly, with gusto.When volunteers tried to remove the remains from the canal, using a front-end loader on an Ocean Reef service truck, the body tumbled from a sling onto the ground.The dead body recovery was a circus at best, Victor Francini, a North Key Largo boat captain, said in a notarized statement. This incident seems to me to point to some serious training problems at MMC, Rector wrote in a complaint to NMFS.Francini said several observers at Ocean Reef were concerned that no efforts were made to capture the dolphin in the days before it died.Fougeres said the federal government largely relies on volunteers and donated equipment to handle strandings. MMC, the only Keys group authorized to handle dolphin and whale rescues, has experienced leaders and volunteers, she said. The MMCs permit to rehabilitate marine mammals at its Key Largo site was suspended during a process to bring the bayside property into compliance with county code. The property was recently inspected and the Fisheries Service could restore the rehabilitation permit after the review process is complete, Fougeres said.Official says protocol followedFrom Dolphin,1A not much of a stretch, as each high school is already patrolled, although the Key West High resource officer splits time at HOB, the only middle school in the county. Each deputy costs the district $50,279 per year. At elementary schools, Porter said he wants resource officers to exercise more of an informal visitation and presence. Porter stressed that recent action on the security front is part of an ongoing effort not necessarily prompted, but rather punctuated, by recent events. Whats happened in Connecticut has raised the level of awareness ... but we just want the board to know, and the public to know, that its an ongoing effort. Will those things step up? Absolutely, he said.He steered the tragedy of a staff member ... and that of a too-young student into a conversation about the greater issue of mental health, noting that budget tightening had the effect of doing away with many school counselor positions both nationally and in Monroe.Board member Ron Martin, former principal of Coral Shores High in Tavernier, said counselors were essential. I think every school in this district ... needs at least one fulltime counselor. Thats just a part of it. Porter acknowledged there is bullying in Keys schools, and he will evaluate which schools seem to be addressing the problem best. He also said the districts bullying policy hasnt been updated since 2009 and needs reviewing. Mark Firestone, whose partner Carol Kings son Cary Yoder alleged anti-gay bullying at Key West High in February 2012, told board members that bullying is a real problem that is being swept under the rug. He called for an independent investigation into whether bullying played a factor in Gillerans suicide. This was not an accidental shooting. Keys school officials care less about investigating the real problem and more about preserving their jobs, Firestone said. Teachers at Key West High School apparently like to turn a blind eye to this issue rather than report it to the appropriate authorities.Porter: Bullying is a realityFrom Schools,1A Mearnsmanslaughter case is droppedAmanslaughter charge against a Marathon man accused of helping cause the death of a teenager by letting her drive drunk has been dropped due to what prosecutors say is lack of evidence. Michael Mearns, 26, the son of former Marathon Mayor Randy Mearns and grandson of former Marathon Councilwoman Margie Mearns, had been charged with manslaughter by culpable negligence following a Feb. 25, 2011, crash in which 17-year-old Amber Kogelis of Lower Matecumbe Key died.You have to prove he knew she was drinking, State Attorney Catherine Vogel said Wednesday, a day after her office filed a nolle prosequi in Circuit Court. Its clear we do not have evidence of the impairment.Thats even though an autopsy revealed Kogelis had a blood alcohol content of .125. In Florida, .08 is considered legally drunk.It didnt rise to the level beyond a reasonable doubt, said Assistant State Attorney Paunece Ramage. She wasnt stumbling, she wasnt holding herself up in a video prosecutors reviewed that was taken at a Circle K store before the crash.State troopers said Kogelis was at the wheel of a 1998 Ford Explorer just after midnight and Mearns was her passenger. They were traveling on a curved portion of Aviation Boulevard at the west end of Florida Keys Marathon Airport when Kogelis struck a parked 2006 Ford pickup before running over shrubs and a curb, hitting a dock and landing in Dodge Lake.She died at the scene. Mearns was able to escape from the Explorer.Following the crash, Florida Highway Patrol Cpl. Pedro Reinoso, a traffic homicide investigator, said in a report that prior to the crash ... Mr. Mearns picked up Ms. Kogelis at her residence at approximately 6:30 p.m. Mr. Mearns never left Ms. Kogelisside, spending approximately 5.5 hours with her going to his residence [on Lime Lane], the Hurricane bar, the Circle K gas station and, ultimately, the crash scene, where she expired from saltwater drowning.He wrote that Mearns allowed Kogelis to drive from the Circle K to Aviation Boulevard so she could practice driving. She had a learners permit.Reinoso wrote that it is critical to note that Ms. Kogelis was under the supervision of Mr. Mearns as she was operating the Ford.... The cause of this crash and the subsequent death of Amber R. Kogelis come to bear on Michael Randall Mearns by acting with reckless indifference by allowing Amber R. Kogelis, a minor, to operate a motor vehicle while [she was] under the influence of alcohol, thereby causing her death.In order to convict, Vogel said, we have to show culpable negligence, which is higher than regular negligence. We dont have sufficient evidence ... In good conscience, we dont have a case we can prove.

AFort Myers-based home builder who does work in the Middle Keys faces accusations he defrauded the state workers compensation program out of $43,000. George Andrew, 48, hasnt been criminally charged yet but the state Department of Financial Services Division of Insurance Fraud has gotten a Lee County judge to issue a warrant alleging two counts of felony workerscompensation premium fraud. Andrew was picked up in the Keys and booked into the county jail on Dec. 5, then released. This week, the Florida Keys Contractors Association suspended Georges membership. He is officially suspended from the organization pending review by the board, President Chris Gratton said. Jim Dorl, Georges Marathon attorney, said: This matter arises out of an erroneous audit by Mr. Georges insurance company and is basically a dispute about the amount of insurance premium due. There was no fraud by Mr. George and this is a civil matter masquerading as a criminal case. George is not a Monroe County-registered contractor but a registered agent for Selvera Jeyatheva, meaning he can apply for and pull building permits. The state alleges that George, as president of Royal Crest Co. Inc., lowballed his companys payroll to regulators, thereby lowering his workerscompensation premiums. The Department of Financial Services says Georges company reported an estimated payroll of $12,000 on insurance applications in 2007. An audit of records from 2007 to 2010 revealed payroll in the amount of $346,905. By underreporting payroll information, George allegedly defrauded FirstComp Insurance and Florida Direct Insurance companies out of $43,000 in workerscompensation premiums. The state says it found the alleged impropriety when staff with the states Bureau of Compliance came across employees of Royal Crest on two separate occasions and detailed audits were done. The audits revealed a difference of final payroll in the amount of $346,905. This is a vast difference from the annual estimated $12,000 payroll, the Department of Financial Services said.County sued for $10 millionFour No Name Key residents filed a $10 million discrimination lawsuit against Monroe County Thursday in Circuit Court.Jim and Ruth Newton, along with Robert and Julianne Reynolds, allege the county has for years willfully denied the Lower Keys island commercial power without proper cause. Currently homes there are powered by solar and generators.The county has a long history of discrimination against that island and the residents and its very flagrant. And if its not discrimination, its ignorance, Reynolds said Friday. The crux of the plaintiffs argument is Chief Circuit Court Judge David Audlins ruling in 2011 that the state Public Service Commission has jurisdiction over the matter, not the county. That ruling came about from a county filing asking Audlin to decide whether county law allows commercial electricity on No Name. County officials say the law doesnt allow it and that it cant issue permits for it. The suit concentrates on Monroe County fighting the installation of 62 Keys Energy Services power poles last year, as well as a 2001 county ordinance creating a coastal barrier overlay district prohibiting commercial utilities in federal coastal barrier areas. Congress created the Coastal Barrier Resource System in 1982, and updated it in 1990, to protect undeveloped coastal barrier areas. The lawsuit also addresses the Newtonscontroversial application last year for an electrical building permit from the county. Originally granted, it was revoked when county officials realized their home is on No Name. In addition to the $10 million in damages which Reynolds called a low number the plaintiffs want Audlin to void the countys coastal barrier overlay district law and grant homeowners electrical permits. If you knew what this has done to the friendships and relationships there ... its pretty much the only thing they think about and talk about. I dont know what the value of my peace of mind is, but in my mind its pretty significant, Reynolds said.

He had his first appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Barry Seltzer Wednesday morning. Hes accused of accepting $4,000 for steering a $25,000 contract to a subcontractor. Prosecutors did not say who that subcontractor is or whether the subcontractor approached authorities or they approached the subcontractor. DOTalso wouldnt say who the subcontractor was. Prosecutors say Capobianco worked as an engineering and inspection consultant at Miamis Metric Engineering Inc. DOTcontracted with Metric to provide services including designing, inspecting and troubleshooting construction of roads, signs and traffic signals. DOTconsidered Capobianco an expert on signalization and lighting construction, including the use of video cameras for traffic signalization and control. Prosecutors say that around 2009, DOTbegan its work in Marathon to improve traffic flow. They say that around May 2009, an agent of the subcontractor offered to pay Capobianco $5,000 if the subcontractor could receive at least $25,000 to install video detection equipment. Capobianco reportedly agreed to the deal, enabling the subcontractor to make a significant profit. The subcontractors estimate was approved and subsequently paid by the state after the equipment was installed. Then around May 2009, Capobianco reportedly met with an agent of the subcontractor in Plantation in Broward County and was paid $4,000 in cash for his help getting the subcontractor the work.Hes accused of bribery in contract dealCRIME FRONTKeynoter StaffState alleges insurance fraudSuspects lawyer says theres no criminalityREGULATIONKeynoter StaffNO NAME KEY


Board delays health paymentsHealth insurance for Florida Keys Mosquito Control District employees will remain fully funded until at least fiscal year 2013-14. The board voted unanimously Wednesday to postpone Commissioner Phil Goodmans plan to have district employees contribute $25 monthly for their plans effective April 1. Commissioner Jill Cranney-Gage, as she did on a controversial board salary issue, swung the vote. She sided with commissioners Bill Shaw and Steve Smith, who didnt favor the charge.I work three jobs. I have insurance. Ive taken the hits like everyone else has, she said. I agree that the employees are taxpayers, too. When morale is low, thats not good for a company. I think maybe we should table this.Her comment was in response to district fiscal assistant Patty Mousseau, who said staff morale is low. Its very discouraging that it keeps being brought up. The morale around here is so low and its not getting any better. The more you take from us, the more we resent it, she said.James Zdan, district aircraft maintenance supervisor, suggested postponing voting on insurance until the next fiscal years budget workshops.This is covered until then and that would be a more appropriate time. This financial expenditure has been approved until October, he said.What Im looking at is sustainability long-term for what our insurance consists of, Goodman said. The last 10 years, insurance costs have gone up 160 percent. Based on cost increases, the same policy we had went up 18 percent, but we cut benefits and brought it down to 6 percent.According to District Comptroller William Southcott, the district is self-insured and budgeted the same $1.5 million for expected healthcare costs in fiscal year 201213 as the previous year. He said there was a 6.2 percent increase in cost, but fewer employees now than in 2011-12 allowed the cost to remain the same By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROLLongtime Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board Commissioner Bill Shaw was chosen by his fellow board members Wednesday to chair the panel for the next year.The board elects officers each year during its January meeting, and did so just after swearing-in new Commissioner Jill Cranney-Gage and incumbent commissioners Shaw and Steve Smith. Cranney-Gage and Smith won election in November.Shaw, who was elected without opposition to a fifth consecutive term, replaced Commissioner Jack Bridges in the largely ceremonial position.Bridges thanked the board for allowing him to serve before opening the floor for nominations. Commissioner Phil Goodman nominated Bridges to remain chairman but he declined.Bridges then nominated Shaw and Smith seconded. No other nominations were made and Shaw was unanimously appointed. Goodman and Cranney-Gage were then unanimously appointed to the vice chairman and secretary-treasurer positions, respectively.In other business Wednesday:The commission decided against paying floridakeys.com roughly $50 monthly to live-stream public meetings in favor of an inhouse system. Goodman has been pushing for broadcast meetings and the local website hosted a trial run during Wednesdays meeting. Cristy Obremski, an account manager for the website, spoke to the commission. Obremski told the Keynoter the base fee is $35 per month and an additional $3.50 per month for each gigabyte of bandwidth used during viewing. She estimated that combined, the bill would unlikely to go beyond $50 per month. The commission elected to have its own staff record meetings and upload them after the fact to the district website. The website hits for the meetings will be monitored for several months to determine interest before determining whether to pay to live-stream them.The commission unanimously approved Goodmans request to post the districts check-register transactions to the district website on a monthly basis.

Cranney-Gage declined to comment as her fellow commissioners held a lengthy debate over a 10 percent salary reduction they all thought they took before Cranney-Gage was on the board but never did. She was the obvious swing vote, eventually siding with commissioners Phil Goodman and Jack Bridges on a 10 percent pay cut effective Jan. 1. The vote was 3-2.Bridges originally floated the idea of scaling back salaries in response to a statewide taxing-district review ordered by Gov. Rick Scott.That review says the district, one of 18 mosquito control districts in Florida, is the only one to pay its commissioners more than $4,800 per year. They earned $21,438 annually as of Wednesday. Former Commissioner Joan Lord-Papy brought the issue to a head in December. She tried to rescind the pay cut at her final meeting, but it was discovered that it was never even approved during summer budget hearings.Lord-Papy then refused, along with Shaw and Commissioner Steve Smith, to consider Goodmans request to discuss a pay cut.Wednesday, Shaw and Smith argued that the $4,800 annual salary benchmark was set more than 50 years ago, and prevents quality candidates from stepping forward in other areas of the state. Shaw, whos been outspoken against a pay cut, read a lengthy list of cost savings he said hes secured for the district over the years. I dont think Im overpaid at all, and I take this time away from my business and family and the small check I earn here, I deserve every part of it, he said. Smith alluded to a separate item on the agenda, floated by Bridges, that would allow commissioners to adjust their own pay as long as it doesnt exceed other salaries. He said neither Bridges nor Goodman has put their money where their mouth is. It is such a tiny piece of the budget. There are much more important things people should be spending their time on, Smith said. Bridges responded by saying that hes watched YouTube clips of Hometown PAC political debates where Smith openly supported the salary cut he believed was approved. He was running for re-election at the time.Smith,Shaw vote against 10% reductionBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROLShaw takes reins at bug boardBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROL Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYMosquito Control Board commissioners Steve Smith and Jill Cranney-Gage are sworn in by Monroe County Judge Wayne Miller Wednesday.Cranney-Gage was elected to a four-year term in November to replace Joan Lord-Papy while Smith was re-elected to his fifth consecutive term.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will consider adopting these designations at its Feb. 13 meeting in Orlando. Its important to keep this proposal in perspective. These designations, while telling the angling world that Florida is a premier sport-fishing destination, will also ensure that recreational anglers can enjoy a traditional game fish for their table at home, and our commercial fishermen will continue to provide our world-famous Florida fish to tables around the world.Florida is the Fishing Capital of the World, and by creating these designations, we will highlight our reputation, drawing visitors from across the globe to our diverse array of fishing opportunities. It shows the world that recreational fishing in Florida is important to all of us.Recreational saltwater fishing in Florida already has a $5.7 billion economic impact and supports more than 54,000 jobs. Fishermen will travel the world for that one special catch, so doesnt it make sense to invite them to Florida? Adoption of these designations will allow the commission, in a separate process, to gather input from the public and our stakeholders to determine which species best fit in each category. Did you know that when it comes to fishing, Florida holds more world records than any other state or country? Just one more reason why we need to let the world know about Floridas premier saltwater fish. Where else can you find great year-round fishing and such a wide array of species diversity? Lets tell the rest of the world what Florida residents already know: Floridas saltwater fishing is the best there is and worth showing off. Kenneth Wright FWC Chairman TallahasseeWhere is the logic in giving 30-year lease to farm what should be restoration land?The Florida Cabinet kowtowed to Big Sugar Wednesday over strong objections from environmental watchdogs. By unanimous vote, the Cabinet Gov. Rick Scott, Attorney General Pam Bondi, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater agreed to extend leases for 30 years on 13,000 acres of state-owned land now used by Florida Crystals and A. Duda and Sons to grow sugar cane. This comes two years after the state agreed to buy up thousands of acres of heavily farmed sugar land in order to retire that source of phosphorus runoff now considered poisonous to a healthy Glades. Restoring the Everglades is considered critical to the health of Florida Bay, Keys fisheries and the underground aquifers near Florida City that are the chief source of Keys drinking water. Florida Crystals, along with U.S. Sugar, A. Duda and Sons and others, dominate Floridas sugar industry. The Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of Florida in Belle Glade, and Florida Crystals Corp. in West Palm Beach, jointly own American Sugar Refining. They market products under the Domino Foods name and recently signed a cooperative agreement with Chinese and Swiss companies to market a sugar-stevia sweetener to meet global demand for a low-calorie alternative. Sugar subsidies under a 2002 federal farm bill artificially prop up the price of sugar in the United States. Beet farmers also qualify, so its not just Florida cane growers benefiting from taxpayer largesse and price protection. Theres big money in those cane fields and it certainly showed in the Cabinet meeting, where representatives from Florida Audubon and the Florida Wildlife Federation questioned why the state would extend leases for 30 years at the same time the state and feds are investing hundreds of millions of dollars in Everglades restoration efforts. Eric Draper, Audubons executive director, told the Cabinet that as landlord, Florida should insist tenants maximize efforts to improve agricultural practices and significantly reduce adverse impact on the land. His pleas went unheeded. The South Florida Water Management District supported the 30-year lease extension. This comes after the district agreed in 2010 to pay U.S. Sugar $197 million for 26,800 acres needed as part of a much larger Everglades Restoration effort. The U.S. Sugar deal included an option to purchase another 72,500 acres with a seven-year lease that could be extended. Price tag to retire that agricultural land now used for sugar cane production: $197 million. So why the sweetheart leases on state land when taxpayers are already footing the bill to buy up land needed to restore South Floridas liquid heart, the Everglades?Miami Herald photo by SUE COCKINGThe Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will consider creating designations for game fish and sport fish when it meets next month.Among the fish that likely will be categorized are bonefish such as this. Tax dollars at workOn Jan. 21, a wonderful, rousing concert by the famous Dukes of Dixieland was thoroughly enjoyed by a few hundred people at the Marathon High School auditorium. The concert was presented by the Florida Keys Concert Association and sponsored by Keys Insurance, with the generous help of many people, most of whom are we, the taxpayers of Monroe County, who paid for the facility. It was wonderful to see such good results of our tax dollars. The Florida Keys Concert Association board is volunteer and unpaid. It has two goals: To bring great music to our area and to encourage our young people to enjoy that music. It worked. All of us who are young at heart had a fantastic time, and the Marathon High School band members were right there with us. After the performance, the band members were kind enough to greet and thank those attending. I was thrilled to see, for example, four lovely young ladies from the school band cluster around the clarinet player for picture-taking. They will remember, learn and maintain love for one of the many exciting arts. So when you pay your taxes, know that there are sometimes many good results: The facility itself. Principal Hammond Gracy and especially Mr. Joy Rayhill, who truly showed his love for his profession and for his students, worked over and above the normal call of duty. Arnie Steinmetz MarathonFortunate should payThe American people are entitled to fair wages, decent and affordable living accommodations, safe and efficient infrastructure and roads, healthful and adequate food, an inclusive educational system, excellent health care, generous vacation and personal time flexibility, a livable retirement income, and an outstanding system that will care for the medical needs of the elderly, infirm, children and the less fortunate. America should pay for this marvelous entitlement society with fair and graduated taxes with the most fortunate and accomplished Americans paying their fair share to benefit all of their fellow citizens. The luckiest and most accomplished Americans will still have the most, as they should, but no American will be very poor, homeless or without hope for a decent life. After all, this is the great United States of America. Edie and Ed Rudy Aventura Co-workers busted in theftsTwo workers accused of stealing from their employer, a Key Largo boating store, were arrested Tuesday on separate grand-theft charges. One man reportedly tried to sell $4,400 worth of stolen electronics online, according to a Monroe County Sheriffs Office report. The other is accused of faking 20 merchandise returns to pocket a total of $385. Although both Homestead residents worked at West Marine near mile marker 103.4, the cases uncovered by store managers did not appear to be linked. Ricky Bella, 22, reportedly took two high-end Garman GPS units and a marine stereo speaker out the back door around Jan. 16, managers told Deputy Dave Campbell. Amanager discovered the loss when checking inventory and turned the case over to corporate security. The loss-prevention manager found a Craigslist posting for the missing electronics with Bellas telephone number as a contact. Campbell said Bella admitted the theft, saying he needs money to restore his suspended drivers license. Bella was jailed under $15,000 bond and released. Stephen L. Santos, 21, confessed to making 20 fraudulent return payouts, all under $22 each, from Jan. 10 to Jan. 19, Deputy Christian Galls reported. Santos listed an item worth $20.41 as returned on 15 of the transactions. Santos was jailed under $5,000 bond and later released.But the cases not connected, officials sayKEY LARGOKeynoter Staff Open-air market gets the OKBeginning March 2 and 3, the East Quay Wall at the Truman Waterfront in Key Westwill host an open-air flea market every weekend until the end of April. The 16-day trial, approved by the Key West City Commission on Wednesday, could set the stage for a standing weekend event. Earlier in the month, commissioners had put off a vote granting a permit to Bazaar Productions Inc., asking City Manager Bob Vitas to further review the plan with the firms president, Candida Andriole. I found everything to be in order, Vitas said. Theres no food preparation on site at all. At the conclusion of the twomonth period, we want to sit down with the specialevent organizer and review the books ... to see whether or not it has been productive. If it is successful, then we need to revisit the entire subject and how were going to handle it, he said. It all depends on community desire and demand. The city will charge Andriole $250 each day the market is open. She, in turn, said she would charge vendors $100 daily per booth. Theres a condition in the agreement that 25 percent of the gross profit be donated to a Key West charitable organization. Commissioners generally lauded the concept as in step with long-gestating plans for the large, undeveloped and little-used parcel at the end of Southard Street. I think its a great idea, Commissioner Billy Wardlow said. Alot of people have been asking us to make progress down there. Im all for this, utilizing the Truman Waterfront and trying something new, Commissioner Teri Johnston said. Commissioner Jimmy Weekley was the lone vote of dissent. He expressed concern about the type of products that would be sold and whether local vendors would participate in sufficient numbers. The Truman Annex Master Property Association, which governs the gated neighborhood that abuts the Truman Waterfront, objected to the market as such a use, in effect, would be an extension of the retail corridor of the downtown district, according to a letter from group Operations Director Sterling Christian. Andrioles permit application describes market wares as including artisan foods, fresh produce, arts and crafts, antiques and jewelry. We wont let you down, she told the commission.Trial period at waterfront is 16 daysBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTTheres a condition in the agreement that 25 percent of the gross profit be donated to a Key West charitable organization.


The Christmas decorations are (mostly) stowed. Champagne bottles have been recycled. Its been nearly a month since you faced the new year with hope, optimism and maybe a few wellintentioned resolutions. And now you find yourself in a slump. Back in the grind. Wondering where your mojo went. Keep these four points in mind to help get you back in the groove.You are better than you think.Arent we all our own worst critics? Dont we have high expectations for ourselves and harshly judge ourselves as unworthy when we fail?There is no such thing as failure. Consider it, instead, a course correction. You make a left instead of a right. Have you failed? Do you grimly keep heading in that direction even when you know you need to turn around? Or stop dead in your tracks, saying, Its no use. Ill never get to that place? Of course not. You learn from what didnt work and keep moving.Make a list. Write down all your good qualities. You have a fabulous voice at least in the shower. You recycle. Youre kind to animals. You pick up stuff when it falls on the floor. You change your oil regularly. You rinse the dishes before you stick them in the dishwasher. Whatever. Write it down, review it, add to it.Begin. Even the smallest step forward is still a step forward. Trying to bite off too big a chunk is what chokes us. I kept putting off washing my windows and screens because Ive got 13 of them and they get bigger every time I look at them. The size of the completed task was just too daunting. Until one sunny, cool day, I told myself, Lets just do these front windows. Just these two. Piece of cake. You can do that. I did. Washing those two windows gave me a sense of accomplishment that encouraged me to continue. Just a few at a time. Make a list. Start with your big task. Break it down into the smallest pieces possible. Then begin. The only way out is through.Maybe your hardships are a bit bigger than gaining a pound instead of losing one. Maybe youre going through the loss of a loved one, a job, a home.Heres the good news: You will get through it. As grim and overwhelming as it seems now, nothing lasts forever.Make a list. What steps can you take to help you move through it? Who can help? Pick a sympathetic and objective person (your pastor, a coach, a therapist) who wants whats best for you, not for themselves. Watch out for people who have skin in your game. Hang in there.I can do this. Yes, you can do this. Whatever it is, you can do it. There is no problem so large it cant be solved. Make a list every night before you go to bed. What good things happened to you during the day? What did you accomplish? What positive things do you have in your life? Start your list can start with I woke up this morning. Take it from there. Its important to frame all your thinking positively. Instead of I didnt punch my boss today, say, I had pleasant conversations with my boss. Instead of I didnt yell at my kids, say, I treated my kids with a cool head.This reinforces whats right instead of focusing on whats not, and allows you to build on that. And by creating and reviewing your list before you go to bed, youll find it easier to go to sleep and wake up rested and knowing that yes, you can do this.Jackie Harder owns Key Dynamics Coaching and Consulting Inc. of Key Largo.

That doesnt mean theyre not brought out for a visit to the more-popular Sombrero Beach a situation that apparently isnt sitting well with some. The beach is crowded during tourist season, and Vice Mayor Richard Keating said hes received several complaints from people about dogs running free with no leash there. I just want to kind of remind everyone that we have a leash law on Sombrero Beach and that its important that we respect other people, he said. Councilwoman Ginger Snead added that not only should dogs be leashed, but you need to pick up after them.Code Compliance Administrator Stacy Charlton told the council she would patrol the beach more.Councilman Dick Ramsay made it fairly obvious he believes the issue isnt big. I assume we have signs that say you have to keep your dogs on a leash, and I assume the dogs cant read the signs, he said, drawing a laugh from the audience. In other business Tuesday:Monroe County Sheriff Rick Ramsay presented a $169,750 check to the council, a refund from the 201112 fiscal year. Since incorporating in 1999, the city has contracted each year with the Sheriffs Office for police service. The budgeted amount for 201112 was $1.43 million.The council adopted a policy by which broken candy canes plastic air intake tubes related to sewer system construction on private property could be repaired by the city. Property owners are responsible for candy cane repair by their own plumber or they can have the city make the repair, Utilities Manager Zully Hemeyer. Weve included the price of $150. After the repair is done, we do an inspection and make sure the vacuum pit is free of rocks. If there are emergencies, well be back out there doing repair. In wastewater-related emergencies, including broken candy canes, residents can call (305) 517-6764 or (305) 481-1683.Keating says some complain about SombreroBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON BULLETS

The District 15 champion Spartans defeated Westminster Christian in their Wednesday regional.I think were going strong and if we keep it going, we can make states, Dolphin goalie Sasha Olivera said.There was plenty to cheer about Wednesday, as standout senior Taylor Konrath scored all three Marathon goals and Olivera played the game of her young life in net.There were shots coming from everywhere. I had to make sure I kept calm and didnt freak out, Olivera said.Olivera made save after save against the Crusaders, including a crucial penalty kick to preserve a 2-1 second-half lead. We practice them, she said. I have a method to how they look at the goal. Offensively, Konrath capitalized all three times on a strategy the Dolphins planned ahead of time. It was based on game tape from a 42 loss to Dade Christian in mid-December.Konrath, who was injured early in that loss, said she remembered a play where a through ball went long and the Crusadersgoalie came far out of the net to play it.

See Dolphins,2B Conchs just edge DolphinsAs was proven again Thursday night, the intensity of a Key West-Marathon boys basketball game, no matter how tame and uneventful its early stages, should never be underestimated.The one-victory Dolphins fought back from a 14-point halftime deficit against Key Wests reserves in the third quarter, then gave the returning starters all they could handle in the fourth before the Conchs held on to a 5651 victory at the Bobby Menendez Gym. The intensity carried over into an unpleasant aftermath that saw Marathon coach Kevin Freeman and a referee who had not worked the game engage in a heated pushing match.Freemans displeasure with the officiating matched the vociferousness of Pine Crest coach David Beckerman, whose team lost to the Conchs on Monday. (Except I dont have a 6-9 guy, Freeman said.)Marathon had little height at all, but that didnt stop the Dolphins from living up to Freemans claim that they are the hardest-working group Ive ever had. Key West coach Anton Lopez played his second team the entire third quarter, and the reserves werent ready for prime time. They made three of 18 shots and committed eight turnovers as Marathon, spurred by Nelson Rojas and Cooper Chaplin, stormed back with an 18-4 run to trail by only 43-41 at the periods end.

Were working to get our confidence back in the final three games of the regular season, Cane head coach Bruce Teachey said. Thats our focus. Coral Shores (6-9) lost 52-40 Wednesday at Terra Environmental, one day after falling at Miami Country Day, 63-50. Country Day (15-5) was the latest in a talented group of playoff-bound clubs the Canes have encountered in recent weeks, along with Gulliver Prep and Westwood Christian.Will Ismer, the Canes6foot-10 center, scored 15 points at Country Day, and guard Chase Cabral added 11.Ismer put up 20 points, half the Coral Shores total, against Terra but the Wolves cut off the lanes to force the Canes to shoot from the outside.We werent able to convert, Teachey said. We also had a horrible 8-of-21 night at the line so that was a significant difference in the game. The Coral Shores and Marathon JVteams play at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Were a well-respected program, coach Chaz Jimenez said, adding that on top of that, people are amazed at how long we have to drive to wrestle. Today, the Conchs are wrapping up the two-day John Raich Memorial Tournament at Jupiter High. This season, they have wrestled twice in Naples, twice in Miami, once in Davie and once in Boca Raton. Last weekend, they finished second in the 27-team Titan Duals at Golden Gate High in Naples. In the championship match, Key West lost to Palmetto Ridge, 47-27, as the Bears avenged a loss to the Conchs in that tournament last season. The Conchs had defeated Estero, 41-27, in the semifinals. We should have won that match we had some forfeits but the kids will learn from it, Jimenez said. Angelo Guieb, at 106 pounds, and Roberto Val, at 220, both went 9-0 to lead the Conchs, who had an array of glittering records.Trey Brisley (120), Andrew Calderwood (145) and Chase Kelley (182) all went 8-1; Cody Pullen (138), John Piraino (152) and Uri Diaz (170) were 7-2, and Tyler Jones (132) and heavyweight Kenneth Sagan were 6-2.The Conchs, with a 19-5 record, had the most wins in dual meets in the programs history.

Free Est.305-834-1842 Living Dress up your look with vintage gemsI fell in love with vintage jewelry at a young age, playing dress-up with all of my grandmothers bold clip-on earrings and dazzling brooches. Lucky for me, vintage jewelry has never really gone out of style.Its timelessness and one-of-akind allure are admired by both avid collectors and fashionistas who covet the charm of these intricately designed pieces full of history, beauty and mystery reflective of a different time.Vintage costume jewelry can be an affordable way to make a statement and is the perfect accessory to add some old Hollywood glamour to your look. As were full bore into the season of fundraisers, galas and formal events, consider making your look more unique by adding vintage jewelry. Dont worry about the jewelry matching exactly; just stay within the same stone color. If you already own a pair of diamond studs, add a vintage clear-rhinestone brooch to your dress for a bit more glam. If your dress has a belt or some side ruching, consider adding a brooch to the waistline of your dress to emphasize your waist. You can also add a brooch to an updo with a bobby pin. In addition to brooches, you can find some really fabulous earring/necklace sets that will instantly transform your look into chic. Go big in only one place. Vintage costume jewelry is dazzling and beautiful and will easily draw attention. If youre wearing a statement necklace, go smaller in the earrings and practically bare on your arms. Use statement pieces to draw the eye to one area, not five. Wearing too many statement pieces tends to be overkill and will only distract, so use vintage costume jewelry sparingly. When buying vintage jewelry, make sure to examine it with care. Does it have any missing stones? Does the piece look like it was crafted well?Vintage jewelry is timeless so buy what you like and dont worry about the trends when it comes to investing in a piece you love.Vintage costume jewelry can range from $10 to $1,000. However, the pieces that are on the expensive side are typically those that are incredibly rare or were designed by a high-end fashion label. However, the majority of costume jewelry you can find for under $100. If you compare this price to something youd buy at a department store, the price is virtually equivalent so perhaps invest in a quality vintage piece you will keep for a lifetime and pass down to the next generation.Most jewelry we buy for special occasions tends to be pieces we will wear only once a year. However, consider how you might incorporate a vintage piece with other outfits in your wardrobe.Abrooch, for example, can really be worn with a variety of items. Wear it on the lapel of a jacket or try combining three brooches and wearing it as a statement on basic shift dress. You can also use a brooch to secure a scarf around your neck. Two boutiques that sell an amazing assortment of vintage costume jewelry:The Pink Junktique at 98275 Overseas Highway in Key Largo. Its open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.In One Era at 227 Petronia St. in Key West. Its open 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day except Mondays. In addition, if youre into online shopping try eBay or Etsy.com. Both have a great selection of vintage jewelry from a variety of sellers around the world. The more specific you are with your search, the better results youll have. I recommend searching using phrases such as vintage rhinestone brooch or vintage rhinestone necklace set.

After two three-point shots by Rojas and a basket by Arie Stewart, the visitors were suddenly ahead, 49-45, and chants of, Who are we? Marathon! blared out from a sea of blue-clad supporters behind the Dolphinsbench.But little went right for Marathon after that. Rice and Valdez scored to tie it at 49-49.Referee Glenn Hayes then hit Freeman with a technical foul with 3:54 left. Rice made one of the ensuing two free throws and the Conchs were ahead for good. In the next minute and a half, the Conchs attempted nine free throws and made three of them for a 53-49 lead. (In all, Key West attempted 21 free throws and Marathon tried six.) The Dolphins were still alive when Rojas scored on a floater in the lane to make it 53-51 with 1:21 on the clock. Scott then missed a dunk attempt just as he had four times in a recent game and Lopez immediately benched him.With a minute left and Marathon down, 54-51, the Dolphins made a turnover, one of 10 they committed in the quarter, and the Conchs went into a stall that consisted mostly of Valdez dribbling.Foul em! Foul em! screamed Freeman, but there were 17 second left when a foul was called. When we try to foul, you wont call it, the coach yelled at Hayes and the other official, Nick Trovato. Thompson who led all scorers with 20 points sank two free throws and, amid the roars of Conch fans, the game quickly ended. Rice followed Thompson with 16 points, Valdez scored seven, Luis Acosta had four, Fred Carter had three and Miguel Rivera, Andre Patterson and A.J. Cromwell each scored two. Eight players scored for the 1-14 Dolphins, led by Rojas, who had 19. Shemar Fantroy had seven, Chaplin and Dominic Cavitt each had six, Jesse Deluca had five, Stewart scored four and Richie Wells and Mike Allen each added two. Afterward, Freeman voiced his concerns about the officiating with Key West referee Glenwood Lopez, the Key West coachs father, who had watched the game from the stands. Suddenly, they began pushing each other, and Lopez then chased Freeman to the end of the court as onlookers rushed toward them.Freeman and Lopez quickly calmed down, had a conversation and parted amiably.We fought hard and had a chance to win, but I thought that was taken away from us, Freeman later said.The Conchs (8-8) will conclude the regular season at 7:30 tonight at home against Florida A&M High. Marathon travels to Coral Shores Tuesday for a 7:30 p.m. contest.Freeman upset with callsFrom Basketball,1Bwas to play shorter through balls, lure the goalie out of net and get behind the defense.Our forwards were faster than any of their defenders, Konrath said. The strategy worked to perfection at the 26:30 mark, as Marathon took a 1-0 lead on Konraths first goal.Dade tied the game up three minutes later, but Marathon answered just 45 seconds later (30:15) to take a 2-1 lead.Konrath completed the hat trick at the 62:30 mark, giving the Dolphins a 3-1 lead. But the game was far from over, as the Crusaders made it 3-2 by heading a ball in off a long throw-in.We were just about to relax and realized we didnt have it yet, coach Cindy Durkin said.Dade Christian continued to pressure the Dolphins and had several solid scoring chances in the games final minutes. Olivera and the Marathon defense did enough to hold on for the victory.Speedy forwards keyFrom Dolphins,1BFin boys done foryearThe Marathon High School boys soccer season came to a close Tuesday with a 4-0 opening-round District 16-1Atournament loss to Westminster Christian School.Coach Jim Murphy said the Warriors dominated possession early on, but Marathon trailed just 1-0 at the break. That goal came on a deflection off Dolphins senior Ariel Rodriguez inside the 18-yard box. We did have a few opportunities in the first half we missed on, Murphy said. They got stronger as the game went and were yet to get to that caliber to beat Westminster and Palmer Trinity School. Westminster added to its lead off a corner kick at the 2:00 mark of the second half. Murphy said a defensive lapse left a player open for a header to make it 2-0. The Dolphins missed an opportunity to close the gap after Ricky Ceja was fouled inside the 18-yard box and awarded a penalty kick. Ceja took the kick but it sailed wide right of the goal.Westminster added a third goal just before the second half-water break, and another later in the game as the Dolphins moved players to the front to help generate offense.The third and fourth, we were playing very offensive trying to get back into it. We knew it was all or nothing, so we played three defenders back and pushed everyone up, Murphy said. The Dolphins finished the season with a 7-9-4 mark.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON BOYS SOCCERPats ends CanesseasonCoral Shores High School bowed out of the boys soccer season Tuesday with a 2-0 loss to Florida Christian in the District 16-2ATournament quarterfinals. The Hurricanes got the shots on goal but not shots into the net, Coral Shores coach Jorge Bosque said. We played really well, Bosque said, but their goalie had one of the most amazing games Ive seen in the last 10 years. He was blocking shots from five feet out that would have been goals in a normal situation. He was all over the place. The Canes outshot the Florida Christian Patriots, 7-4, but two of theirs counted, said the coach. Coral Shores graduates veterans Nick Hortensi and Sean Anderson along with Jon Mitjans, Thomas Mirabella and Azizur Aziz off the squad the squad that finished a solid 10-6-1. We knew this was going to be a rebuilding year and these guys helped us get better, Bosque said. Coral Shores has a large group of varsity veterans eligible to return.CORAL SHORES BOYS SOCCERKeynoter Staff


In late 2010, a pair of gay foster dads in Key West heard of a proposed motion picture that sounded a lot like their own legal fight to adopt two sons. The film mirrors our case here in Florida, said Wayne LaRue Smith, who, with partner Dan Skahen in 2008, became the first gay men in Florida allowed to adopt. Smith and Skahen met with director Travis Fine and, along with Miami attorney Steven Kozlowski, co-produced the movie Any Day Now, which co-stars Broadway and TVactor Alan Cumming and which Friday nationally and in South Florida on the mainland. I want people to see it because it really moves people, said Kozlowski, who with Miami Beach attorney Elizabeth Schwartz helped represent Smith and Skahen in 1999 at the beginning of their Florida adoption fight.Set in 1979, Any Day Now is a fictional story of a Los Angeles drag queen named Rudy (played by Cumming) who takes in a youngster with Down syndrome after the boys mother goes to jail on drugs and prostitution charges. Rudy and his boyfriend Paul (Garret Dillahunt of TVs Raising Hope) face many legal hurdles as they attempt to adopt young Marco (Isaac Leyva).After being grilled in court about whether they would be good parents and role models asked questions like whether the boy ever saw them kiss Rudy and Paul lose their case.It would not be appropriate to have a happy ending, even though were conditioned to expect one, said Cumming, who co-stars as consultant Eli Gold on CBSThe Good Wife and won a Tony opposite Natasha Richardson for the 1998 Broadway revival of Cabaret.Cumming, a longtime LGBTactivist, said he took the part for union scale as a social responsibility.Its not like I have an onus on me to do something I dont want to. It has to be something important, said Cumming, whose latest cause is an anti-circumcision campaign called Intact America.Cumming filmed Any Day Now during a 2011 summer break from The Good Wife. The subject matter, the injustice, the horrible, horrible injustice is what I most responded to, Cumming said of the independent film, which cost under $2 million to produce. The thing I came away from was how awful this wonderful family was destroyed. Cumming is quick to remind that even though the film is set 34 years ago, its like a reality check. It happens. It still happens. It stands up on its own as a story in its time, Cumming said. We know that prejudice like that still exists in the world. Its not like it was 100 years ago. Its so upsetting that this thing happened and were part of a society that let this happen. The local producers agree.There are still places where these kinds of questions are raised, Kozlowski said. We live in a bubble here in South Florida, a more progressive reality than in other places in Florida. You look at Unfit,the Ward vs. Ward story. That was 1996, not that long ago. Unfit is a 2012 documentary about a Pensacola lesbian who lost custody of her pre-teen daughter to an ex-husband who had murdered his first wife.Kozlowski also helped represent Steven Lofton, a Florida gay man who in 1999 unsuccessfully tried to adopt his foster sons. How could no parents be better than gay parents? Thats when ideology trumps the reality, Kozlowski said.The battleFlorida banned gays from adopting just after Anita Bryant successfully campaigned to repeal MiamiDade Countys gay-rights law in 1977. For 33 years, the state was the only one in the nation that specifically banned gays from adopting. The law was overturned in 2010 when an appeals court upheld an adoption granted to Martin Gill of MiamiDade County. Smith and Skahen adopted their boys in 2008. The state chose not to contest a Monroe County judges ruling, making them the first openly gay adoptive parents in Florida. The message remains an important message, said Smith, a Key West attorney who works with other foster parents, gay and straight, who want to adopt. Occasionally, we get wind of some politician who wants to reinstate the ban against gay adoption. We have to be vigilant, Smith said. There are still significant voices in Tallahassee and around the state who are opposed to full equality for all families. Smith said their sons, Alex, 15, and Joseph, 16, attend Northeast boarding schools. Joseph is dyslexic and in a special school. Hes doing remarkably well. Hes going to a high school that boasts a 100 percent graduation rate, and 100 percent of their kids go on to a college or university. He wants to be a veterinarian and Im very confident he can do it. Smith said Alex is being educated elsewhere because we dont have a lot of confidence in the local high school. Both boys are thriving, Smith said. When you see them realizing their potential, its fulfilling, its humbling, he said. It fills me with the sense of awe about life in general.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4B Saturday,January 26,2013 Randy Roberts as Mother Superior. Kathleen Peace as Sister Acacius, wrestling coach. Mimi McDonald as an imposing Jewish atheist philanthropist. Add a convent backdrop and secrets from previous lives lived and you have the makings of The Divine Sister, a play described as gleefully demented and as a comic homage to nearly every Hollywood film involving nuns. It opened Tuesday and will play through Feb. 23 at the Red Barn Theatre, 319 Duval St., Key West.Written by Charles Busch, who starred in Die Mommie Die and is the author of the Broadway play, The Tale of the Allergists Wife, his latest work won rave reviews when it opened in New York.Heres what the New York Times reviewer wrote: Cue the Hallelujah chorus! Mr. Busch is in peak form ... his freshest, funniest work in years, perhaps decades. Director Larry Coen, who won a Norton Award for his direction of The Divine Sister in Boston, came to Key West for this production, which features sets by Rick Worth and Gary McDonald. This theatrical send up of nun stereotypes runs the gamut, according to The St. Louis Theatre Snob, who wrote: This peek behind cloister walls will provide you with plenty of rollicking over-the-topness, including send-ups of everything from Doubt and Agnes of God to The Sound of Music and The Da Vinci Code. Just about everyone in the show has a past, and the revelations that come out one by one thicken the plot with the most entertaining turn of events. I cant even tell you. You just have to see it for yourself. Female impersonator Roberts stars as Mother Superior, managing a swirling chaos of mystery, intrigue, holy miracles, surprising love interests, Russian dwarves and a sinister monk. McDonald plays the Jewish atheist and a 10year-old boy learning the mechanics of swinging a baseball bat at the convent school. Peace also plays the role of Lily, girl reporter. In addition to Roberts, McDonald and Peace, other cast members for the Key West production include: Joan ODowd, who plays a severe doctrinaire nun from the mother house in Berlin and also an old Scottish charwoman; Nicole Nurenberg, a fresh-faced postulant flirting with miracles with a surprise counterpart; and Brandon Beach, who covers the action as a handsome reporter and also plays an albino monk. All the actors play dual roles in this one. And they all have secrets. The unraveling of those secrets involves enough plot threads to weave a center-hall tapestry, wrote Ben Brantley in The New York Times.

Erin Stover, who interviewed for the artistic director job in November, moved to Key West just before Christmas from Lynchburg, Vir., where she served as the curator of exhibitions and programs for the Riverviews Artspace. Stovers hiring was preceded in September by the addition of Jed Dodds, who took over executive director duties from Jay Scott after three years. Dodds, formerly of The Creative Alliance in Baltimore, Md., has a bachelors degree from Yale University and a Master of Fine Arts degree in sculpture from the Art Institute of Chicago. He also took executive training at the Stanford School of Business. In an interview withNew artistic director touts vivid energyBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Florida stone crabs rated a seafood delicacy.Stone Crab Festival at Rowells MarinaEver wonder why Mother Nature gave Florida stone crabs such a strong claw? Diet. Stone crabs prey on oysters, other mollusks and crustaceans. That strong claw enables them to crack open shells of their prey. And those large claws make for some lip-smacking good eatinespecially when served up with dipping sauce, some hash browns and plenty of cold beer or even champagne.Key Largo presents stone crabs and more during the fourth annual Stone Crab and Seafood Festival Jan. 26-27. Rowells marina property at mile marker 104.5, bayside, hosts the event, which showcases culinary offerings from Upper Keys restaurants.Festival hours on Saturday, Jan. 26: 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. On Sunday, Jan. 27, its 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Heres a rundown on restaurants participating: Ballyhoos Seafood Grille, grilled oysters Key Largo Fisheries, raw bar peel and eat shrimp, stone crabs, and fish dip Key Largo hosts seafood fest on Jan.26-27 KEY LARGOSee Studios,5BSee Stone crab,6B


Saturday,January 26,2013 5B Keynoter KeysNet.com LAttitudes, Stover, who holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Vir., said during past visits to Key West she was struck by the local artistic community and looks forward to immersing herself.Stover said she has visited the Southernmost City four or five times before moving here, mainly to hang out on the beach or go diving.But of the robust art scene: I noticed it very vividly in terms of energy. Its obviously a wonderful community of artists. You can see it everywhere in town.I could sense that in my 24or 48-hour visits, but I was never here long enough to fully immerse myself. So thats what Im doing now. Stover said of her new role at The Studios of Key West: My main focus is going to be exhibitions. The first opened Jan. 17. Titled The Vandenberg Project-The Life Above Refined Below features painting by Austrian art photographer Andreas Franke that were secured to the hull of the artificial reef made when the USS Hoyt S. Vandenberg was scuttled off of Key West.Franke photographed the wreck and digitally added elements, creating images such as a young girl wielding a butterfly net to capture fish and a workman perched on a crossbeam to eat his lunch. The 4by 5-foot photographs then were sandwiched in plexiglass and displayed on the Vandenberg s Weather Deck beneath the oceans surface for almost five months. Barnacles, algae and other marine organisms grew on them and slight water leaks altered the images to create the work being exhibited on land. Im very excited thats going to be the first exhibition I come in on, Stover said. Theyre phenomenal pieces. I love that they have the impact of the ocean.Stovers preferred medium when I have the time to make art is drawing and painting. Since she is essentially the Studios arbiter of would-be exhibits, Stover said its a conscious effort to remove her own tastes from the selection process.Its impossible to totally take yourself out of that process and there are things that appeal to me, she said, adding that she was aware of the need to reflect beyond her own preferences. Stovers first few weeks in Key West have been spent biking around the island and stopping by galleries and studios to introduce herself. Im a wanderer, so Im exploring on bike and on foot. Being in the city, my work and personal life overlap. Im just out there trying to meet everybody. Its the kind of work I love doing.Awonderful community of artistsFrom Studios,4B Photographer Andreas Frankes photographs were mounted on the Vandenbergs weather deck and allowed toagefor months before surfacing for The Studiosexhibit,which runs through Feb.15.

The Richard Alfieri play, called thoughtful, razor sharp, charming by the H ollywood Reporter opens Jan. 31 for a two-week run at the Waterfront Playhouse.Its the story of a formidable widow living in a Florida condo who decides to hire a dance instructor to give her private lessons. Unfortunately, its hate at first sight. Through the language of dance, however, these two somewhat lost souls eventually move beyond their differences to find a meaningful friendship. The New York Post called the play Ajoy to watch!Joy Hawkins plays Lily, a retired schoolteacher who is attempting to move beyond the loss of her husband and reconnect with life. The artistic director of The Red Barn Theatre, Hawkins recently directed Oil City Symphony. And last season she played Violet in the Waterfronts August: Osage County. Also at the Waterfront, she has appeared to critical acclaim as Sister Aloysius in Doubt and Amanda in The Glass Menagerie.Denis Hyland plays Michael, a former Broadway chorus boy who has moved back to Florida for family reasons and is barely keeping his head above water. Hyland is well known as a brilliant dancer having performed with major ballet companies. At the Waterfront he has appeared as Nugget in Equus as well as the villainous Jack in Reefer Madness. Last season he performed with the Key West Contemporary Dance Company in their presentation of .Michael Boyer is responsible for the Florida condo setting; David Bird is handling lighting, with Carmen Rodriguez in charge of costumes and props. Luigi Ritarossi choreographed the ballroom dance routines. Annie Miners is stage manager for this production. For tickets, call 294-5015 or visit: WaterfrontPlay house.org for online ticketing. Guest director Meltzer is just coming off several critically-acclaimed hits from the South Florida theater scene, including I Am My Own Wife and the recent, All New People. Six Dance Lessons premiered at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles with the great actress and acting teacher Uta Hagen and Frasiers David Hyde Pierce. On Broadway, the two performers were Polly Bergen and Mark Hamill (from Star Wars fame.) Subsequent productions include runs in Berlin, Tel Aviv, Helsinki, Tokyo, Paris, Madrid, London, as well as all over the U.S. The Miami Herald called the show a huge crowd pleaser!Joy Hawkins, Denis Hyland are the starsTHEATERJoy Hawkins and Denis Hyland star in Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks,which opens Jan.31 at the Waterfront Playhouse.
