Story, 1B Fuzzy math?How did a $350,000 parking lot at a rebuilt school suddenly jump in cost to $700,000? Story, 6A Fake IDs lead to griftersAcouple who managed a popular Key Largo resort allegedly scammed their way into their jobs using fake IDs and are out-of-state fugitives who once almost got away with conning the state of North Carolina by claiming to be multimillion-dollar gem investors. Police on Wednesday arrested Tamara Asada, 40, and Robert Pearl, 39 managers of Gilberts Resort under the Jewfish Creek Bridge in Key Largo since last summer on felony charges of possessing counterfeit Florida drivers licenses. According to Monroe County Sheriffs Office arrest reports, Asada and Pearl gave Gilberts owners, Karina and Reinhard Schaupp, bogus IDs when they applied for their jobs.The Schaupps called police earlier this week after suspecting Asada and Pearl were stealing from the business. Reinhard Schaupp told deputies he didnt want them to investigate the alleged theft, but did want police to see photocopies of the IDs Asada and Pearl provided when they applied to Gilberts. The Schaupps declined to comment on the case.Asada and Pearl, who may be married, were using the names Tamara and Robert Trotter, but no records were found matching those names when Detective Francisco Gaete searched several databases. Gaete then obtained arrest warrants for the couple. After Gaete arrested Asada and Pearl and took them to county jail on Plantation Key, they both told him their real names and dates of birth. Detectives found out the couple had several arrests in California and North Carolina. And the Orange County, Calif., District Attorneys Office issued an arrest warrant for the pair in January 2010 for felony fraud, second-degree burglary and grand theft, accordingCouple had tried to swindle North Carolina, reports sayBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comKEY LARGO ASADA PEARL CRASH LANDINGThis 36-foot boat with three 300 horsepower engines on the back crashed into a Key Largo mangrove island when the operator set his GPS incorrectly,state officials say.Hes OK but the environmental damage could be considerable.Story, 2A Fishermen charged with 1,300 countsTwo commercial fishermen were charged with a total of more than 1,300 conservation violations Tuesday after being found inside a no-take zone in the Dry Tortugas, marine law-enforcement officers report.Both men were cited for harvesting 664 yellowtail snapper one misdemeanor count for each fish seized from the commercial boat Candelaria according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.Boat owner Evelio Lazar Egusquiza Fornes, 49, of Miami and mate Jorge Nesto Gellart, 49, also were charged with fishing inside the Tortugas Ecological Reserve, a no-fishing zone enacted under the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, and other violations.The two occupants were actively harvesting yellowtail snapper by hook and line, and were very surprised to see us, FWC Lt. Josh Peters wrote in a report. Signals from the boats vessel monitoring system, a radio beacon required aboard commercial boats in some federal waters, showed the boat was stopped inside the no-take area, Peters reported. Officers patrolling the Dry Tortugas responded and located the Candelaria in the northern reserve. Achum bag, lines and baited hooks were in the water, Peters said. An inspection of the vessels catch revealed some of the yellowtail were still alive and fighting for life. The Tortugas reserves were established to protect the areas marine ecosystem from effects of harvesting marine life, including fish. Commercial boats can navigate through the zones but cannot stop if they have fish aboard. The 781 pounds of confiscated yellowtail was sold for $2,558, which will be held in escrow until the case is decided.Theyre found angling in protected zoneCRIME FRONT By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comKeynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYIndigenous Park in Key West,home of well-used bocce ball courts,is in line to get a major facelift,with the first step spending $173,000 on design work going to the Key West City Commission for approval on Tuesday.Story, 6ABOCCE,ANYONE? EGUSQUIZAFWC tables fish protectionsState fishery rulemakers have thrown a plan to create rules for whats a game fish and whats a sport fish back into the water. The proposal before the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission survived a first hearing in December but it was tabled with the prospect of a revival unlikely Wednesday at the FWCs Orlando meeting.They began changing things and making exceptions, said Tom McLaughlin, a Boca Grande charter fishing captain who supported the concept.It was a little rushed and got a little confusing.... Then it started to cave in on itself, said McLaughlin, a former Tavernier resident. After more than two hours of testimony and discussion, FWC board members directed agency staff to look into creating some type of parameters specifically for bonefish and tarpon, said FWC spokeswoman Amanda Nalley. Concerns that other species, such as sea trout or permit, could wind up as designated sport fish or game fish apparently doomed the plan. This was entirely about permit, McLaughlin said. Basically, the only opposition came from divers who spearfish out of the Tampa area. They organized and got about 20 to 25 divers to show up in Orlando.Targeted were permit,tarpon and bonefishFISHINGBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgWaterfront plan appears all but deadThe U.S. Navys sudden decision to halt all non-federal boat traffic in Key West Harbor as of Feb. 25 all but ends plans for a privately run marina and all that would generate economically at the Truman Waterfront. Naval Air Station Key West Commanding Officer Capt. Pat Lefere told Mayor Craig Cates about the closure in a Feb. 7 letter, writing that the Navy has a concern that non-federal activities within the harbor may restrict or prohibit naval surface vessel maneuvering and dive training. I would imagine given what the Navy said, the marina is probably gone, Commissioner Jimmy Weekley said Friday and that would send a ripple into the citys grand plans for the entire waterfront. NAS has previously aired its concerns with the development plan there in light of our operations, the designated restricted area and the lease of the bay bottom, NAS spokeswoman Trice Denny said. The marina was envisioned more than five years ago to be run privately through a city-leasehold and provide a revenue stream supporting the upkeep forNavy decision likely to kill marina projectBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTSee Crime,2ASee FWC,2ASee Harbor,3A
to California court records. At press time, they were both in the Key West jail. According to the Sheriffs Office, California authorities are not seeking to extradite them. Monroe County detectives still dont know how Asada and Pearl obtained their fake licenses, spokeswoman Deputy Becky Herrin said. Asada and Pearl also got in trouble in Franklin County, N.C., when they tried to convince the states Department of Commerce and several other counties economic development offices that they represented a Botswana gem manufacturing company looking to open a facility in the state. For a three-week period in the beginning of 2009, they almost got away with the scheme by promising the project would create up to 1,500 jobs to the state. The Pearl Project sales pitch was so convincing, according to the Franklin Times newspaper, that seven counties wanted the facility. Franklin County offered Pearls bogus company incentives like investment tax credits, cash grants up to $3 million and fishing trips. County and state officials began to get suspicious that they were being had after Pearls perks requests were getting evermore exorbitant, the Franklin Times reported in several articles. Pearl was confronted at the RaleighDurham Airport by state and county officials, who soon found out he was wanted by police in California on a 2008 warrant. But despite the alleged grift, no criminal charges were filed against the couple because, besides man hours, the scam was detected before any serious money was lost, according to the paper. But the couple was arrested a few months later on felony credit card and identity theft charges. The charges were eventually reduced and they both served 40 days in county jail, according to Franklin County Court Clerk records. It is not clear if they were extradited to California for that states warrant.Shady past follows coupleFrom Crime,1A KeysNet.com Keynoter 2A Saturday,February 16,2013 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDA Y HIGH L O W SAT.7654 SUN.6256 MON.7263 TUES.7764 Forecast: Expect a slight chance of showers and breezy conditions over the weekend.

Graveside services will be held at the Southern Keys Memorial Cemetery on Big Coppitt Key (mm 10) at 11am, Tues Feb 19 MORROW Paula Clark Morrow died of heart failure at the age of 100 on February 10, 2013, at her home in Key Largo. A trail blazer, devoted to womens rights, Paula was the second woman to enroll at the University of Florida, Gainesville, in 1930. After receiving a bachelors degree with a major in journalism, she served as a reporter for the Miami Daily News from 1936 through 1941. Thereafter she worked for the Salt Lake City Tribune and the Associated Press. She began work at the Miami Herald as a reporter having a desk next to Henry Reno, and was later promoted to the Heralds Sunday editor. As the first woman admitted to the National Association of Sunday Newspaper Editors, she went on to serve as President of that organization. Paula had a strong work ethic. Employed for the last twenty years of her career as Public Relations Director of the Hartford Courant, with Herculean promotional outreach efforts she doubled the Courants circulation. She also served on the Board of Education and Democratic Town Committee in her home town, Harwinton, Connecticut. Moving to Key Largo in 1976, Paula worked as a "stringer" reporter covering the Upper Keys for the Miami Herald. She was active in the Friends of the Key Largo Library and the Bureau of Professional Women for whom she published a newsletter. A true bibliophile, she volunteered at the Key Largo Librarys gift shop for many years. She was also a member of the Purple Isle art guild. Paula is perhaps best known in Key Largo as the founder in March of 2000 of the Senior Group, sponsored by the Friends of the Key Largo Library. For the past thirteen years, she served as the Senior Groups publicist while also helping her co-chair, Kathy Gong, recruit speakers for the Senior Groups Monday morning speakers program. Paula is survived by two children -a son, William Clark and a daughter, Betty Clark, who resides in Key Largo. She also leaves her beloved daughter-in-law, Sandra Andre, and two cherished grandsons, William Clark and Brian Clark, three great-grand daughters, two nieces and two nephews. She maintained close relations with her family. A celebration of Paulas life will take place at the Key Largo Civic Club Sunday, March 3, 2013 at 11 A.M. The rule reaching the FWC would have created a recognized sport-fish designation applied to species so economically valuable to the recreational economy that only catch-and-release fishing would be allowed. Bonefish and tarpon were considered the most likely candidates for the designation. Permit, the third of the Big Three of flats fishing, was a possibility, although FWC staff noted that permit are harvested as food fish in some Florida waters. Species designated as game fish would be protected from commercial harvest, with a small bag limit for recreational anglers. Snook and sea trout were among expected candidates for game-fish status. The plan shot down Wednesday did not list species to be designated. That review was intended to be made on a species-byspecies basis after the framework was established. About two dozen people commented on the gamefish and sport-fish proposal in Orlando, with slightly more than half opposing it, according to observers. We stand united in opposition of any fishery closures for reasons other than that species being threatened, diver Rob Murphy wrote on a popular spearfishing website. The sportfish/gamefish designations are ill-conceived, ambiguous in detail and criteria, and just plain discriminatory. The Bonefish and Tarpon Trust, based in Key Largo, and Boca Grandes Save the Tarpon group led by McLaughlin supported it, along with others. FWC staff noted that in an online poll, those supporting the game-fish and sport-fish plan outnumbered opponents by more than two to one. McLaughlin said the FWC dulled the plan by making language changes and exceptions. Focusing efforts on saving tarpon and bonefish may be a better scenario to increase protection now, he said. All seven [FWC] commissioners mentioned tarpon and bonefish as being uncontroversial.Plan ill-conceived, ambiguousFrom FWC,1ABoat flies i n to ma n g r ove isla n dState environment officials are assessing the damage caused in a nighttime Monday crash in which a Coconut Grove man accidentally drove his boat into a mangrove island traveling 250 feet into trees before landing. Daniel McBride, 39, was operating his 36-foot Concept vessel powered by three 300-horsepower engines around when he missed South Sound Creek in John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park waters, crossed Airport Flat and went up on the island. Knocked unconscious, McBride awoke when his dog, the only other occupant aboard the boat, started licking McBrides head wounds, he told Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Officer Mike McKay. McBride stayed aboard the boat until morning, when he called SeaTow of Key Largo for help. He declined medical attention, saying cuts to the back of his head and forehead had stopped bleeding, the FWC reported. He told McKay that after fishing until late Monday, he headed toward South Sound Creek, a large channel inside John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. Around 10 p.m., he missed the channel and ran into mangroves several hundred yards to the west. Propelled by the three large outboards, the boat traveled about 80 yards through the dense growth, the FWC reported. Asalvage plan to remove the boat sought to minimize additional to the protected mangroves. Astate biologist with the Department of Environmental Protection will submit a report on resource damage.Alcohol is not suspected as a factor, said Officer Bobby Dube, an FWC spokesman. Rather, McBride had his GPS setting too wide for the area, and had the incorrect background lighting selected.Environmental damage now being assessedKEY LARGOKeynoter StaffFinally, closure on the pig lawJust in time for National Pig Day, which arrives March 1, the Marathon City Council has again clarified its law regulating domesticated swine.Meeting Tuesday, the council voted on eight amendments approving four to a law that was enacted just two months ago.Originally approved on Dec. 11, Councilman Dick Ramsay asked the council on Jan. 8 to reconsider the law based on numerous complaints he received. Council members had until Tuesdays meeting to provide suggested amendments. The primary ones approved are those prohibiting the breeding of pigs in city limits, and requiring male pigs to be neutered by four weeks of age and female pigs spayed within four months. The council also adopted amendments requiring pet pigs to be on a leash or otherwise restrained when outside the owners home, and that enclosures meet minimum setback requirements provided in the citys land-development regulations.Shot down were amendments restricting ownership specifically to miniature Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs, restricting weight to a maximum of 200 pounds, and requiring owners to clean enclosures at least once a week and pick up after the pig in public. Mayor Mike Cinque whose Stuffed Pig Restaurant celebrates National Pig Day next weekend called the amendments dealing with cleaning up after the animals overreaching. I would hope they do this with their cats or dogs or any other animal that wanders on their property, Cinque said. Cinque, who sponsored the original version of the law, was noticeably perturbed by the proceedings. This was a simple ordinance I sponsored to allow people to keep pigs as pets, he said. Existing provisions call for annual licensure of domestic pigs ($55 annually) and verified vaccinations each year.

APompano Beach contractor for the state Department of Transportation pleaded guilty Wednesday to a federal bribery charge involving the installation of traffic control equipment in Marathon four years ago. Ron Capobianco Jr., 40, could receive up to 10 years in prison when hes sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge U.S. Magistrate Barry Seltzer on May 7.In pleading guilty, Capobianco admitted accepting a $4,000 bribe to steer a $25,000 contract to a subcontractor.The U.S. Attorneys Office says Capobianco operated Elite Signal and Lighting Inspections Inc. and that DOThired him because of his experience in traffic control. In 2009, the subcontractor, based in Plantation in Broward County, told Capobianco would he would pay him $5,000 if he got a deal worth at least $25,000 to install video detection equipment during the Middle Keys work. Capobianco said yes, the subcontractor got the work and DOTpaid the subcontractor which authorities didnt name following completion of the job. In May 2009, the subcontractor gave Capobianco $4,000 not the agreedupon amount of $5,000. Half the $4,000 went into Elite Signal and Lighting Inspectionsaccount and Capobianco spent the rest, authorities said. The Marathon project included the construction of roads and the installation of signs and traffic signals. The U.S. Attorneys Office charged Capobianco on Jan. 23. the rest of the public portion of the park. The public notice of the closure was sudden even though Cates says the Navy has been hinting around at the harbor closure for a while. Its not unexpected. If thats the case, why it was never publicly brought up before remains a mystery. But back on Oct. 12, the Navy sent the city a letter spelling out significant challenges to the marina development. They include:The Navy has a submerged lands lease with the state for the harbor that prohibits assigning a sub-lease.The whole harbor is a restricted area and non-federal traffic is limited.Aprivate marina and associated traffic would interfere with surface and dive operations.That same month, the City Commission approved an overall waterfront design that includes the marina, a waterfront promenade along the Inner Mole Pier, an interactive water feature, amphitheater, community center, and trails for bikes and pedestrians.Marina operations would help finance operations at the rest of the waterfront. But if the harbor is closed to nonfederal boat traffic, it appears the chances for a marina at the waterfront are slim to none.The Navy uses the harbor to dock visiting war ships, as well as foreign naval vessels deployed in the Caribbean. It also coordinates with other military and law enforcement agencies to conduct dive training, often using the retired U.S. Coast Guard cutter Ingham now a museum ship, as a staging area. Most immediately, the harbor closure affects the operations of amphibious sightseeing tours that launch from the harbor. They are Historic Tours of Americas Southernmost Duck Tours and City View Trolley Tours. If they want to continue, theyll have to find another place to launch.Navy says no more useFrom Harbor,1A Saturday,February 16,2013 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com 8103 Gulf of Mexico Blvd.Seawatch, Marathon Amy PutoREALTOR Cell 305-766-1745 Toll Free 800-366-5181 ext. 6525 amyputo@ g mail.comwww.MarathonFloridaKeys RealEstate.comLookin g to BUYOR SELLyour property?

The head of the Monroe County School District is continuing his effort to bring a unified anti-bullying policy to Florida Keys schools.At a Tuesday School Board workshop at Marathon/Middle High, Superintendent Mark Porter said hes evaluating various programs already in place, looking for best practices.Referring to several incidents at the Middle Keys school a week and a half ago, Porter said the presence of social media brings in some significant challenges. On Feb. 7, the Sheriffs Office discovered a social media application called Whisper, which allows anonymous users to post words, photos and the like to be shared with a specific user group, in this case students at Marathon Middle/High. In one battery report, two girls pushed each other after one thought the others boyfriend posted negative photos and text about her on Whisper, Deputy Becky Herrin said. In a second incident, she said, one boy went after another because of a posting on Whisper, although the encounter was stopped by teachers before it turned physical. School resource officer Sgt. Glenn Test also looked into a disorderly-conduct complaint and a cyberstalking complaint, both related to Whisper. None of the incidents led to arrest, Herrin said.Parents should be aware of this particular application and whether their child is using it, Sheriff Rick Ramsay said, stressing the need for parents to monitor their childrens social media use.Porter told the School Board that an anti-bullying program, in about half of the schools in the Keys, is called Speak Up, Be Safe. Former Monroe County State Attorney Dennis Ward brought that into the school system through a sponsorship by the Jacksonville-based Monique Burr Foundation. Aspecific component of the program encourages children to pick a person, whether a relative or school mentor, with whom they feel comfortable, then having that person meet with a Burrtrained guidance counselor on how to address concerns the child may have. Speak Up, Be Safe is in all of the Keys elementary schools. The addition of the middle and high schools is in the works. The grant-driven Burr Foundation, founded in 1997, focuses on child-abuse prevention. Speak Up, Be Safe stresses five safety rules: Its my body; ask an adult if I am safe; I have choices; tell someone; [and] its never my fault.

The developer, Net5FDA, had until Feb. 6 to keep its commercial allocation of 15,561 feet the Village Council approved last summer, but the firm let the deadline expire, said Village Manager Ed Koconis.The conditional-use permit is still valid for the oceanside mile marker 81 property, but Jacksonville-based Net5FDAwill need to reapply and compete for the roughly 22,000 square feet of commercial space the village is allowed to allocate this year.Net5FDApaid about $2.5 million for the property in December 2010.The village normally can approve only 6,692 square feet a year, but it expanded allowable commercial allocations by 16,000 square feet last April from square footage it had voluntarily given up in previous years. About 7,000 square feet was allocated to the Islander Resort to build a $4.5 million conference center last summer.The only other project so far competing for the allocation is a 6,727-square-foot storage facility on Plantation Key that the Village Council was expected to approve at its regular meeting Thursday. Senior Planner Cheryl Cioffari said her staff does not expect any other projects to compete for the allocations by the end of the next fiscal quarter, which ends April 30.

Bull had floated the idea for a wide-ranging summit next month to meet with the boards to discuss how they operate and see if theyre effective, but meeting Tuesday, the rest of the council said no. In effect, they said theyre fine with how each board operates. Not only are they volunteers but theyre very dedicated to the city. I think the existing structure is fine and we should leave it alone, Councilman Dick Ramsay said. I would move that we abandon this conversation and try to get to as many of these meetings as possible. I think that would help their morale. In fact, it appears the only board with any issues is the Parks and Recreation Committee. Bull said its supposed to meet monthly, and had five meetings in the last year.

Last year, the agency, which governs professional licenses and certifications, received a complaint that Gentile was using the title certified public accountant despite not holding that license in Florida.Gentile does have an active New York CPAlicense.We never had a hearing, Gentiles attorney, Robert Cintron, said of the DBPR case. They reviewed what we sent them and the statute and advised us that they were dismissing the case, there would be no discipline and the matter was closed. Separate of the DBPR investigation, Superintendent Mark Porter suspended Gentile without pay for one week in December based on the CPAissue. Hes challenging the suspension, which cost him about $2,300 in salary, through the Florida Department of Administrative Hearings.Avideo hearing is set for March 9, connecting Cintron and Gentile from the Marathon Government Center with DOAH in Tallahassee.Cintron said the two matters are separate but share a common theme. Im not going to go so far to say the decision of DBPR governs what DOAH does. Gentile started with the district in April 2010 under a three-year contract good for about $122,000 per year. At first, he was chief internal auditor and a direct employee of the School Board. Next, then-Superintendent Jesus Jara made Gentile chief of staff and an employee of the administration. Porter has since made Gentile the finance director. Gentile has about eight weeks left on his contract. By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS
Sewer permits on line WednesdaySewer lines can be extended into a North Key Largo area listed under the Coastal Barrier Resources Act, a sewer-district attorney has advised the Monroe County Commission.When the commission meets Wednesday in Key Largo, the board will consider whether county permits for sewer-line connections can be issued to property owners in the area off County Road 905.Commissioners were concerned that the Coastal Barrier Resources Act generally forbids use of federal money on projects that could encourage development in listed areas, like North Key Largo. The Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District has received federal funding.But district lawyer Ray Giglio said in a Jan. 17 response to county staff that an entity such as the [wastewater district] is not prohibited from doing non-federally funded construction in [protected] areas just because it has previously received federal funding.... The plain language of the [act] suggests that it prohibits the federal government and only the federal government from making expenditures in Coastal Barrier Resources areas, he wrote.While the wastewater district can use rights of way to install main lines, county commissioners were concerned about local comprehensive land-use laws that both discourage and prohibit extension of utilities, including wastewater through Coastal Barrier areas.Thirty-two North Key Largo homes are affected. The sewer district learned just days before construction was set to begin in November that a force main set to be constructed along 905 would run through the federally protected coastal barrier area, and halted work.Discussion of the sewer issue tentatively is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center at mile marker 102. The daylong meeting begins at 9 a.m. Fishing moneyAlso Wednesday, Mayor George Neugent will seek approval of $25,000 to back a study into the Economic Impact of the Florida Keys Recreational Flats Fishery.The locally based Bonefish and Tarpon Trust is forwarding the project, which it estimates will cost $110,000.Im convinced it will be shockingly revealing as to [the fisherys] importance to Monroe Countys economy, Neugent wrote in support.District says theyre OK to be issuedCOUNTY COMMISSIONSewer-lateral money availableThe city of Marathon has scheduled daylong workshops Feb. 21 and 28 to help qualified applicants apply for available sewer-lateral grant funding.City Utilities Manager Zully Hemeyer said the meetings will be held from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day at the Marathon City Hall conference room. Its on U.S. 1 between 98th and 99th streets.Key West-based Meridian Community Services Group has been helping the city distribute what was originally a $750,000 state Community Development Block Grant. Its aimed at helping lowincome families finance lateral connections to the city sewer system. Hemeyer said there have been 208 applications thus far for the grant funding and that $568,286 remains available. She said 25 lateral connections have been completed using grants while 25 more are under construction and 65 ready to bid.The cost of running laterals from private property largely depends on how long they have to be to get to the city pipes.According to Hemeyer, financial help is available for families that earn 80 percent or less of whats considered low income by the state. For a fourperson family, income must be less than $69,350 per year.Theyre going to have people here to help anyone that has an application or would like to fill one out, Hemeyer said. Hemeyer said Meridian would work with residents to help determine first whether theyre eligible for a grant. If so, they must fill out a threepage application that includes a copy of the previous years tax return. The city is trying to beat the drum to let people know there is money left for sewer connections, Hemeyer said. Marathons state-mandated sewer system is almost fully constructed. The only place work is still being done is the Key RVmobile-home park near mile marker 50. According to Hemeyer, a little more than 1,800 properties have not connected out of 5,812. As of the end of January, the properties that were connected were 3,969, she said.City hosts 2 meetings for applicationsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com Saturday,February 16,2013 5A Keynoter KeysNet.com Public Meetings Scheduled by and with the City of Marathon forFebruary 2013Please note that more than one Marathon City Council/Board/Committee membermay participate in the meetings listed.City Council City Manager Mike Cinque, MayorRogerHernstadt Richard Keating, Vice MayorCity Attorneys Dick Ramsay, CouncilmemberGray-Robinson Chris Bull, Councilmember GingerSnead, Councilmember CITYOFMARATHONSUBJECT : DA TE: TIME: LOCA TION: City Hall Closed (PresidentsDay)02/18/13 Parks & Recreation Committee Meeting02/20/136:00pmMarathon Fire Station, 8900 Overseas Highway Sewer Connection Grant Application02/21/1310am-4pmMarathon City Hall, 9805 Overseas Highway Assistance City Council Special Call Meeting02/21/135:30pmMarathon Fire Station, 8900 Overseas Highway (Discussion of City Hall Project) City Council Executive Session02/26/134:30 pmMarathon Government Center, 2798 Overseas Highway Case 2012-CA-9-M GlobeTec vs. City of Marathon City Council Meeting02/26/135:30pmMarathon Government Center, 2798 Overseas Highway Sewer Connection Grant Application02/28/1310am-4pmMarathon City Hall, 9805 Overseas Highway AssistanceTo view the full City of Marathon calendarplease visit ourwebsite: www.ci.marathon.fl.usPursuant to Section 286.0105, Florida Statutes, if a person decides to appeal any decision made by the City Council with respec t to any matter considered at any meeting or workshop noted herein, he or she will need a record of the proceedings and for such purposes he or she may need to ensure that a verbatim record of the proceedings is made; which record includes the testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is to be based.

Published Keynoter 2-16-13 Library-city hall on the tableThe city of Marathon should know by Wednesday whether to include space for a county-run library in its plans for a new City Hall.The city and Monroe County have been in contact over that possibility since Jan. 17, when the City Council green-lighted building a new city hall to replace the trailers now housing city offices. County Administrator Roman Gastesi said a citycounty collaboration would be discussed during Wednesdays County Commission meeting in Key Largo, likely during Engineering Division Director Kevin Wilsons staff report.We had an internal meeting and theres been some emails back and forth with [Marathon City Manager Roger Hernstadt] and Kevin Wilson, Gastesi said. We need to make sure the [County] Commission is OK with it and Im not sure. We will get that head nod or not next week: Do you want to shoot it down or spend some staff time on it. Whatever decision the commission makes would be roughly 24 hours in advance of the citys scheduled Thursday special meeting to discuss the new city hall. Several years ago, the city and county looked at building a combined city halllibrary on city owned-property on 104th Street, but that fell through. If the idea progresses this time, it would be where the city offices now are, at U.S. 1 and 98th Street.The current Marathon library is cramped and officials have long sought an upgrade.The City Council clearly prioritized City Hall as the project to work on as a priority, Hernstadt said. Were ready and willing to do that once the council makes the decision with respect to the amenities to be included. Meanwhile, the city has issued a request for proposals for professional architectural services for a new city hall. It says the building is expected to be approximately 10,000 square feet.Hernstadt said the city is not concerned with issuing the RFPbefore finalizing any plans with the county and discussing amenities on Thursday.The proposal is usually about the expertise of the firm, Hernstadt said. We said [10,000 square feet] was a nice round number to let them know its not going to be a seven-story building]. He said the building, if it includes a library, would be two to three stories.Wednesdays County commission meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. at the Murray E.

Park improvements in early phaseThe Key West City Commission on Tuesday will consider spending $173,690 on design, construction documents and permitting for a major facelift of Indigenous Park on White Street. The project has been subject to several delays, notable following heavy flooding in the 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons, and pending a development plan for the adjacent Higgs Beach property owned by Monroe County. Indigenous Park includes the Wild Bird Rescue Center, storage for the citys Urban Forestry Department, a major pump station, bocce ball courts, and parking for access to Rest Beach and the White Street Pier. City Planner Don Craig, in an executive summary to City Manager Bob Vitas, said the design, construction documents and permitting would take about 240 days from start to finish. Construction could begin in early 2014.The city has on retainer Fort Lauderdale-based design firm EDSAInc., which would do the work pending commission approval.The city for many years has struggled with the most appropriate long-term use of the park and today it serves a variety of uses, Craig saidHe added that the county Higgs Beach Master Plan indicate[s] to staff the opportunity to initiate the longdelayed design for Indigenous Park and its environs.Last year, the County Commission approved a long-term redevelopment plan for Higgs Beach that considers rerouting Atlantic Boulevard, which bisects the parcel, to allow for a larger beachside parcel. Already funded is a new beach playground, completed last year at a price of $223,600. Funding to move the road is scheduled to become available from the state Department of Transportation in 2015.And theres a $28,250 grant from the Toyota/National Audubon Grant Program to install a cistern and saltwater well at the Wild Bird Rescue Center.That operation uses 800 gallons of potable water per day filling recovery pools for injured shorebirds. The city wants to cut back on the propertys water consumption to make the program more sustainable.Douglass centerAlso up for discussion and approval Tuesday is a $187,783 expenditure to hire Hayes/Cumming Architects to conduct a full condition assessment of the dilapidated Olivia Street gym and meeting space.Its the first step toward a planned $1.5 million rebuild of the Frederick Douglass Community Center.

Pa r ki n g lot n ow $700KJust like that, the cost of a parking lot at the reconstructed Horace OBryant Middle School in Key West has doubled to $700,000.That bomb was dropped at a Tuesday meeting of the Monroe County School Districts advisory Audit and Finance committee, then again later that day at a School Board meeting at Marathon Middle/High School.Last month, construction officials discovered that a handicapped-accessible parking lot for the school will cost $350,000 a cost not expected. And now its twice that because the contractor, Coastal Construction, says it cant complete the building construction and the parking lot simultaneously, so another contractor will have to come on board for the parking lot to meet a federal deadline to finish the school. Superintendent Mark Porter said hes trying to determine how to finance it. Our No. 1 priority with HOB right now clearly is to get it ready for students at the start of the school year in August. Board member Ed Davidson noted theres a $134,000 line item in the contract with Coastal Construction to rebuild the schools soccer field. He said the parking lot will displace the planned field, so he says redirect that money for the lot. Those two things will be linked in the recommendation, Porter said. Were going to need to find a lot of resources to do that, Davidson said. Were going to look like a bunch of jackasses if we cant put kids in that school by early August. Original plans for the parking were changed when an elementary school wing to replace Glynn Archer Elementary School was added to the design but never incorporated into the construction plan for the $38.6 million job. With a June 1 deadline for completion date coming up, the issue has been the focus of recent board discussion, particularly why its just now being brought up. Now all of a sudden, its coming out like its unknown and the price has more than doubled, board member John Dick said. In reference to the districts numerous project monitors, including a contracted construction manager: Thats all those eyes that were watching out for us. Nobody is watching out. Davidson agreed, These are people weve been paying handsomely who did not do their jobs in the public interest. The June 1 deadline is a function of the financing, provided at a low interest rate as part of the federal American Reinvestment and Recovery Act. If the district misses the date, penalties could start around $2 million.2nd contractor being brought in for workBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYHorace OBryant Middle Schools reconstruction has been beset with a variety of problems.The latest is a handicapped-accessible parking lot.

The Sweetheart Ball was enjoyed by a full house of partyinfused guests on Feb. 9 at the Marathon Yacht Club. Afew months ago, Dianne Weitz (hospital public relations) was reviewing an old scrapbook belonging to the hospital auxiliary and came across a handmade beautiful invitation to this event, and many pictures and articles. At that moment, Diane made it her mission to bring this event back to life. Bringing together hospital staff, members of the auxiliary, the hospital foundation and generous community support, her mission was accomplished. And what fun it was. With dance music by the band Reach keeping the dance floor jumping; excellent dining, spirits and service by the Marathon Yacht Club; many donations from the community for the auction; flowers and decorations; and the efforts of the hospital and auxiliary volunteers, it was a Sweetheart Ball dressed to the nines and full of life. Thank you to Diane. The point of this is that Fishermens Community Hospital is back to where the founders meant it to be, serving as a community hospital. Hence the name. You are the community. You own this hospital. It is here because all of you care for our many visitors and guests when the need arises. The hospitals success and excellence are dependent on your support.The board of the hospital, the leadership, the medical staff and support staff are of this community. They are your neighbors, friends and relatives, as are the volunteers in the auxiliary. You, the owner, need to praise your hospital for all that it does right, and offer positive, constructive and helpful comments to the board and management. It is the mission of every member of the staff that everyone is served well and that they meet and highest standards possible. They need your support to do that.The foundation is new and there is a substantial learning curve. With the support of this community, we are well on our way. Of all the many ways to give, please keep in mind that a handshake, a thank-you and a hug to your community hospital staff and the volunteers living next to you are of amazing value and appreciated. Marv Schindler Fishermens Community Hospital Foundation MarathonIn the Southernmost City, just a handful will stay as reminders of the pastWhen was the last time you used a pay phone? Do you even remember what they look like? Both questions pop into mind as the city of Key West decides the fate of the few remaining pay phones in the Southernmost City. When BellSouth pulled the plug back in 2003, a company called First American Telecommunications signed a contract with the city to operate some 100 pay phones on city streets. That meant getting permission to occupy choice real estate on sidewalks, where the city already parcels out permits for such things as bicycle racks, newspaper racks, even bus stop shelters (which have mini-billboard advertising signs). When City Manager Bob Vitas reported back to the City Commission about the now-expired pay-phone contract, he recommended keeping only a few locations that generate the most volume of calls. Not surprisingly, of the 100 locations originally permitted, only 22 remain and those are mostly sited along Duval Street and its cross streets, and a few left on North and South Roosevelt boulevards. Well, road construction has pretty much taken out the North Roosevelt locations. And any left on South Roosevelt are few and far between. Given the proliferation of cell phones, its hard to remember when pay phones were once considered an essential lifeline, especially in urban areas with lots of foot traffic. Today, they may serve as a backup when cell service is disrupted like during hurricanes. Indeed, thats the argument First American made in pitching the original 2003 contract, citing the hard-wired phone stations as there in case of natural disaster. Alot has changed in the intervening years, including the number of cell towers and repeaters that make cell service far more reliable than it was before. And during Hurricane Georges in September 1998, it was the cell phone links that provided the only communication with the outside world when AT&Ts phone lines were downed, cutting off major parts of the Keys. Perhaps, in the not too distant future, pay phones will disappear from the sidewalks of Key West. Will they be missed? Not any more than we miss those coin-operated parking meters, which frequently broke down and required a mad scramble for quarters. As much as locals curse the new pay stations, at least they work. And no more scavenger hunts in the console or side pockets of your car looking for loose change.Fish fry sizzledThe Key Largo School fifth-grade Safety Patrol would like to thank all of the businesses and people for generously donating to our annual fish fry that was held Feb. 1. It was a huge success and we are well on our way to paying for our Washington, D.C., trip in May. This event was an approved Monroe County School District fundraiser. Debbie Williams Event chairwoman Key LargoAbolish death penaltyAreview of capital punishment in Florida, as recommended by The Florida Bar, is all well and good, but we know right now that the best approach to the death penalty is to abolish it. No system of justice can avoid mistakes as Floridas 24 capital exonerations show. Speeding up appeals, as recommended by state Rep. Matt Gaetz, would only exacerbate this. Decades of studies have shown that the death penalty is more costly and not a greater deterrent to murder than Floridas only other possible sentence for first-degree murder life in prison without parole. It has also been shown to carry the taint of racial bias. Every decent person feels the tragedy of murder. But instead of the government having the life-or-death power over Floridians, let it spend our tax dollars in ways that will actually reduce homicide, and protect human rights. Steven Wetstein Amnesty International Miami Members of Key Largo Schools fifth-grade Safety Patrol thank Winn-Dixie store director Danny Natelli for the stores help staging the fish fry.Perhaps,in the not too distant future,pay phones will disappear from the sidewalks of Key West.Will they be missed? Computerpolicy soughtThe Monroe County School District plans to come up with some way to get approval from teachers or issue some kind of disclaimer before their classroom computers can be remotely accessed through cameras and microphones. What exactly that is isnt clear or on the immediate horizon.School Board members took up the discussion Tuesday, questioning the efficacy of the system and expressing concern over the Big Brother-esque potential. The issue came up when some teachers approached board member John Dick, asking why ITstaff has remote access to their computers.ITinitially said the department doesnt have such access but then reversed and admitted it does. Superintendent Mark Porter said he has no evidence that anyone actually spied on teachers through the computers but Dick and board member Ed Davidson arent convinced. Having this whole thing there really does bother me, Dick said. There are three components to the SchoolVue software: Tech, tutor and client.Tech is for ITstaff to remotely fix or maintain computers; tutor is for teachers to listen and watch students doing computer-based assignments; and client allows your computer to be monitored.Dick pointed out that the client, not tutor, software is on around 250 teacher computers, essentially removing the functionality from the system and confusing the vendor, with whom he discussed the matter. The question became, Why did we put 250 of the client models on teachers? And the company said, Why would anybody do that?That, to them, was very strange. Davidson pointed to the 2007-08 district finance scandal and the lack of trust that resulted in the then-superintendent and his wife, another high-level administrator, with felony convictions for respectively covering up and stealing more than $400,000 in schools money.Expressing frustration with the discussion, board member Robin Smith-Martin said that even without the software package in question, there are other ways to tap into someone elses computer.This is all speculation but this is whats going to be on the front page of the newspaper ... because you guys are making this stuff up in your own brains, SmithMartin told his colleagues.

Approved statewide by voters in the 2012 election, the amendment would apply only to residents at least age 65 with an annual income less than $27,590 and an assessed property value less than $250,000. The owner must also be a 25-year resident of that property. Aresident of any Keys city who qualifies under those terms would be exempt from paying municipal property taxes if his or her city passes such a law. The same thing for unincorporated Monroe County if the County Commission passes such a law.Its specific to municipalities and counties, meaning the homeowner would still pay taxes for agencies such as the School District, Florida Keys Mosquito Control District and South Florida Water Management District. The exemption would be applied toward the assessed valuation of the taxing authority, whether it be county or city, that adopts the ordinance, said Lynn Garcia, Real Estate Department supervisor at the county Property Appraisers Office.You have to yearly apply for it because not only is the value is going to be different, but the income is going to have to be looked at, Garcia said. The Marathon City Council took the first step Tuesday, giving staff the goahead to draft an ordinance that would need approval at two public hearings before enactment. According to preliminary Property Appraisers Office figures from Jan. 15, the amendment could have a $16.45 million impact Keyswide, including $2.5 million in Marathon. That was a quick study, but it appears researching further those numbers will be a lot less, Garcia said. Marathon Finance Director Peter Rosasco told the council on Tuesday that an overall $2.5 million citywide decline in property value would equal $5,500 in lost city tax revenue due to the tax break.Theres some concern if the Legislature keeps doing this it could have an impact on local government budgets, but this was approved and will have a diminutive effect on the citys budget, he said.Upon final approval, the amendment would trump existing homestead exemptions.Citys first in the Keys to want itBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON
Want to know how much a hip replacement will cost? Many hospitals wont be able to tell you, at least not right away if at all. And if you shop around and find centers that can quote a price, the amounts could vary astronomically, a study found. Routine hip replacement surgery on a healthy patient without insurance may cost as little as $11,000 or up to nearly $126,000. Thats what researchers found after calling hospitals in every state, 122 in all, asking what a healthy 62-yearold woman would have to pay to get an artificial hip. Hospitals were told the made-up patient was the callers grandmother, had no insurance but could afford to pay out of pocket thats why knowing the cost information ahead of time was so important. About 15 percent of hospitals did not provide any price estimate, even after a researcher called back as many as five times. The researchers were able to obtain a complete price estimate including physician fees from close to half the hospitals. But in most cases, that took contacting the hospital and doctor separately. Our calls to hospitals were often greeted by uncertainty and confusion, the researchers wrote. We were frequently transferred between departments, asked to leave messages that were rarely returned, and told that prices could not be estimated without an office visit. Many hospitals are just completely unprepared for cost questions, said Jaime Rosenthal, a Washington University student who coauthored the report. Most hospitals arent intentionally hiding costs, theyre just not used to patients asking. Thats particularly true for patients with health insurance who dont bother to ask because they know insurance will cover it, said co-author Dr. Peter Cram, a researcher at the University of Iowas medical school. But he said thats likely to change as employers increasingly force workers to share more health care costs by paying higher co-payments and deductibles, making patients more motivated to ask about costs. The study was published online Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine. A California study published last year about surgery to remove an appendix found similar cost disparities. Commenting on the study, American Hospital Association spokeswoman Marie Watteau said hospitals have a uniform set of charges. Sharing meaningful information, however, is challenging because hospital care is unique and based on each individual patients needs. She said states and local hospital associations are the best source for pricing data, and that many states already require or encourage hospitals to report pricing information and make that data available to the public. U.S. insurance companies typically negotiate to pay less than the billing price. Insured patientshealth plans determine what they pay, while uninsured patients may end up paying the full amount. The study authors noted that Medicare and other large insurers frequently pay between $10,000 and $25,000 for hip replacement surgery. Sean Toohey, a grains broker at the Chicago Board of Trade, had hip replacement surgery last summer at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, Ill. An old sports injury had worn out his left hip, causing horrendous pain on the job, where hes on his feet all day filling orders. Toohey, 54, said his health insurance covered most of the costs, and it didnt occur to him to ask about price beforehand. He was back at work two weeks later and is pain free. Thats what matters most to him. I never really looked or paid attention to the cost, he said. He paid about $7,900, but wasnt sure what the total bill amounted to. The average charge for hip replacement surgery at Loyola is about $42,000, before the negotiated insurance rates. The most expensive items on a typical hip replacement bill include about $11,000 for the hip implant, said Richard Kudia, Loyolas vice president of patient financial services Kudia said some patients do ask in advance about costs of surgery and other medical procedures, and those questions require a little bit of research to come up with an average estimate. Costs vary from center to center because there is no standard pricing among hospitals across the country. Each hospital develops its own pricing depending on its market, he said. An editorial accompanying the hip replacement study said there is no justification for the huge cost variation the researchers found. Afew online sites provide price comparisons for common medical procedures, but the editorial said that kind of information is of almost no value without information on hospital quality. Aproposed federal measure that would have required states to force hospitals to make their charges public failed to advance in Congress last year but could be revived this year, the editorial says. It is time we stopped forcing people to buy health care services blindfolded, the editorial said.

Julian Marx scored 20, Khambrel Roach scored 18 and Trey Mourning, the 6-foot-9 son of Alonzo Mourning, scored six and had five blocked shots.For the Conchs, senior Elliott Valdez ended his career with 24 points. Junior Daniel Thompson, the teams top scorer this season, had 13, while Luis Acosta added seven, Tony German had three and Miguel Rivera scored two.Elliott had a great game, said coach Anton Lopez. He shot well from the outside and was very aggressive. The Conchs were down, 40-27, at the half, but Ransom soon turned the game into a rout. We played hard, but we made mistakes in the third quarter, Lopez said. The third quarter was a problem for us all season.

Its good to have some success and be 1-0, Conch head coach Miguel Menendez said. We need to get better defensively but our effort was good. These guys want to get better. Key West junior Darren Miller was about the only pitcher ready to go for the Conchs but he responded with a two-hitter against the Hurricane lineup through the six-inning game at Founders Park in Islamorada. Darren was throwing strikes and got the job done, Menendez said. The Conchs belted three hits in the first inning, which, combined with three Coral Shores errors, to give Key West a quick 6-0 lead. Key West held a 7-1 lead into the sixth inning when the Conchs assembled a second six-run rally to finish the game. We got down early and had play catch-up, said Cane head coach Pat Meyers.

But coach Luis Leal said the Dolphins made seven errors that led to most of Ransoms runs. The Raiders scored two unearned runs in the third inning and four more in the sixth after two Dolphin errors. Marathon also struggled offensively, with just two infield singles heading into the last inning. Cooper Chaplin (1-for-1) singled home the teams lone run in the bottom of the seventh.

And with the return of Valdez and the addition of Thompson and another newcomer, guard LanreScott, hopes were high last summer.But everything changed in September when Rice and JeQuan Lopez were charged with stealing electronics from school band members. Both sat out with suspensions until schools superintendent Mark Porter reinstated them in January. The 6-foot-5 Rice, a junior, immediately led the Conchs to four consecutive victories before he was suspended again for violating court stipulations.Lopez, a senior who was arrested in a domestic altercation shortly after his reinstatement, never played again.The Conchs were even more short-handed in the postseason when Scott, who had high-scoring games, was not available.

Miller reached base in all four at-bats and scored twice. Coral Shores coaches rotated six pitchers on the mound. Carter had the strongest outing. Kalen was throwing hard, and Cody Richards did a good job defensively at second, Meyers said. Coral Shores opened the season with freshmen Dalton Falcucci and Kyle Gates flanking Carter in the outfield. The infield comprised sophomores Daryl Chou at third, Ian Thomson at shortstop and Richards at second. Junior Sal Barrios manned first.Coral Shoresoffense was limited. Mitjans doubled in the first and senior designated hitter Graham Miller singled in the second inning to advance Thomson, who came around to score the years first run after reaching on an error.Both sides committed about five fielding errors.

This year, the ample parking and other amenities at the airport (like bathrooms) convinced festival organizers to keep that venue for the 19th annual art extravaganza. Until vehicular access was shut down for Pigeon Key, this annual winter season show was held on the tiny island that connects Marathon with the Old Seven Mile Bridge. Both share the communitys early history as a railroad boomtown. Pigeon Key housed Henry Flaglers Overseas Railway construction workers along with barges that were anchored off the island and contained cement and other construction materials. Several buildings from that era have been restored and are open for tours. Access these days is by ferry only so the art show has moved, first to the Community Park, and now to the Florida Keys Marathon Airport.This years art fest, Feb. 23-24, will include artists from around the country, featuring works in glass, sculpture, photography, painting, jewelry and other media.Artists will demonstrate their skills during the show, which gives patrons a glimpse of techniques the artists use to make their original creations.

Saturday,February 16,2013 5B Keynoter KeysNet.com Oscar Nominated Short F ilms of 2013. Run Times: L ive-Action 115 min.; A nimated 88 min., and D ocumentary 206 min. N ow playing at the Tropic Cinema, Key West. Its only in the last few years that the Oscar Nominated Short Films have been widely released to theaters nationwide. Thats especially good news for viewers this year. The 2013 nominees are excellent; touching, inventive, thought-provoking and humorous are just a few adjectives that describe these delightful shorts. The (mostly) independent films are divided into three categories: live-action, animated and documentary. In the live-action category, two of the strongest are Death of AShadow and Henry. The former features a dead World War I soldier, who is given a second chance at life by capturing the shadows of men at their moments of death. Filled with fascinating and mysterious machinery, this surreal film shows that the indomitable human spirit may even be capable of overcoming death itself. Henry gives viewers a poignant look at the insidious way Alzheimers can erode a lifetime of memories, leaving only an empty shell where a person used to be. The devastating consequence on family members is shown to great effect.The youthful energy and vitality of young boys is featured in two other live-action nominees. Buzkashi Boys takes viewers to Afghanistan and shows that, no matter what country or circumstance they happen to live in, boys will be boys. And, when reality rears its ugly head, childhood dreams may or may not come true. Asad, filmed at a Kenyan refugee camp with a Somali refugee cast, depicts the poverty and despair of the third world through the eyes of a young Somali boy. Life forces him to grow up fast and he must choose between two paths, one honorable but hazardous, the other more profitable but even more dangerous.Curfew is a perceptive look at the profound effect people can have on each other. Aphone call for help brings a suicidal New Yorker back from the brink of death and gives his life new purpose. The film features a gifted young actress named Fatima Ptacek, who appears to have a bright future in Hollywood.The five documentary shorts touch on poverty, homelessness, cancer and heart disease, but arent as depressing as that sounds. Inocente tells the story of a 15-year-old artist who is an illegal immigrant living in San Diego. Or rather, she tells her own story, right into the camera. Mondays in Racine is a heart-wrenching but also heart-warming story of two sisters who own a hair salon and offer free services to women fighting breast cancer. Open Heart is another touching tale of dedicated surgeons who perform life-saving surgeries on eight sick Rwandan children. Redemption, filmed in New York, shows the strength and character of people living on the fringe on society. These hardy people make no excuses and arent filled with self-pity as they scratch out a living collecting bottles and cans from the city streets. And Kings Point shows that having money and a comfortable lifestyle still may not be enough to make a happy life. Seniors who moved to a retirement resort in the 1970s find that Florida is not all sunshine and happy endings. Its a melancholy film that may have some viewers rethinking their retirement plans.The animated shorts are a smorgasbord of black-andwhite, stop-motion and traditional color animation. Head Over Heels is a clever stop-motion look at a long-married couple who have become so detached from each other that they literally occupy different spaces in the same house. In Paperman, a young office worker tries to catch the attention of a woman by tossing paper airplanes out of his high-rise office building. The artwork is eyecatching in this cute boymeets-girl tale.Adam and Dog tells a story of the first meeting between man and dog in the Garden of Eden. The animation is gorgeous and even after they bundle up to leave the lush Garden of Eden, mans best friend tags right along. The Longest Daycare features Maggie Simpson (yes, that Maggie Simpson) trying to save a butterfly from a mean kid at her day care center. Its not the best of the nominees but Maggie does save the day with some inspired thinking. Fresh Guacamole is a terrific animated short that slices, dices and morphs various everyday objects into completely different forms. Its easy to miss some of the inventive transformations, so viewers should pay close attention.Most of this years Oscar Nominated Shorts are well made and genuinely entertaining. In fact, many of these short films are a much better investment of the viewers time than some of the twohour, star-studded bombs of the past few months. If you havent seen these shorts, theres still time to catch them before the Academy Awards on February 24. I highly recommend the films in all three categories and the Tropic Cinema deserves a round of applause for bringing them to the Keys.accompany the singers with a mix from opera as well as fan favorites from the Neapolitan songbook, a specialty of Castillo.

The Key West Art & Historical Society this month is unveiling the largest-ever exhibition of one of the islands most beloved native artists, Mario Sanchez. Grits and Grunts celebrates the life of the folk artist as well as the everyday life that inspired his depictions of the city. An opening reception for the show, which will run until early September, is set for 5:30 to 7 p.m. Feb. 22 at the Custom House, 281 Front St.In the mid-1930s, Sanchez, who was born in 1908 and died in 2005, began to carve and paint the colorful fish found in Keys waters. He did this entirely from memory and with impeccable accuracy.Eventually, at the encouragement of his mother-inlaw, these early carvings evolved to Key West neighborhood landscapes filled with local characters, streets and buildings. Hed begin by sketching on brown grocery bags. The finished image was traced on a pine panel and then carved away with chisels and razorblades until the bas relief was ready to paint. In addition to oil paint, he added texture with sand or kitty litter to bring the scene to life. Grits and Grunts will feature an array of the paperbag drawings and early carvings most of which have never been exhibited. Some of the bags contain quick sketches while others are finely detailed compositions. The reception is free for Art & Historical Society members. The general public is welcome for $5.Meanwhile, if youre heading to New York City, the South Street Seaport Museum is displaying 35 pieces of Sanchezs work in a show called AFishermans Dream: Folk Art by Mario Sanchez.The Key West Art & Historical Society is co-presenting the exhibition along with the American Folk Art Museum.

Pop quiz: Do you know how much water you use? While I can report that my husband recently replaced our faulty toilet with a very efficient 1.28 gallons-perflush model, I have to wait for another months water bill to see how it has improved our water-use numbers. Judging from the very short tank-fill cycle, I can tell its a vast improvement from our last model. But really, my question was not about efficient showers, toilets and washing machines. Just about everything manufactured or processed uses water in some part of its production. So how much water do we really use? After my husband and I cut back on our meat consumption for health reasons, I happened to see an article that compared the water footprint (the amount of water used in its production cycle) of common food items and was stunned to read how water-intensive the meat and dairy industries are. Water is used to produce the food crops, livestock drink large quantities of water and the processing of livestock and dairy products uses water. An example: It takes 621 gallons of water to produce a beef hamburger and 42 to produce a veggie burger. We cut back on meat and dairy for health reasons but our decision has, by chance, reduced our water footprint.My curiosity led me to look at other comparisons just to see how my choices fared.I am a tea drinker and given a choice between a good cup of PG Tips tea with milk versus a cup of coffee, tea wins. In reading about the water footprint, I found that it takes 30 gallons of water to produce one cup of coffee but only nine to produce a cup of tea. So I found other benefits to my cup of tea. We made a decision to cut back on plastic disposables whenever possible when we do boat picnics or have outdoor get-togethers with friends, so I use regular plates, cups and silverware. They perform better than plastic ones but I do understand they require washing afterward, so I always wondered if there really was any gain to be made. I did some research and found that it takes 24 gallons of water to produce one pound of plastic. In addition, nearly 10 percent of U.S. oil consumption about 2 million barrels a day is used to make plastic.Oil is a non-renewable resource. So on balance, even though the reusable items will need water and energy to wash, at least we get to use them again and we are not adding more items to our trash. Admittedly I will use paper plates on occasion and when Im out I will succumb to buying the odd bottle of water, but I try to make it the exception rather than the rule.Theres always a choice to be made between cost, convenience and sustainability. Living in the Keys, where our water is pumped in from the Biscayne Aquifer, our trash and recyclables are trucked up to Broward County and we are surrounded by the beauty and the delicate ecosystem of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, our choices tend to lean toward sustainability.Shirley Gun is a member of the Keyswide nonprofit Green Living & Energy Education.
