How do you feel about a 5’9” bull shark chillin’ at the Bight?

“I don’t really like sharks when they are that close,” said high schooler Brooke Ftacek, “Some sharks can be really cool, but not bull sharks. I am going have to be super careful now in the water.”

“Well, it certainly is interesting. I have a lot of friends who dive and they need to be careful,” said Lisa Waters, of Pro Plant Design. “I hope she is far enough away now.” (The bull shark was trapped and moved to the North Channel.)

Did you know bull sharks, not great whites, were the inspiration for Peter Benchley’s “Jaws?” Did you know bull sharks are just as likely to attack humans as great whites and tiger sharks? And in case you missed it, did you know a 500-pound female bull shark was hangin’ out during happy hour at the Key West Bight right under your two-for-one mojitos?

WEEKLY INTERVIEW

KEY WEST WEEKLY / JANUARY 13, 2017

HAYS BLINCKMANN hays@keysweekly.com

A

rlo Haskell lives in a world built by words. Everywhere the written language surrounds him and he revels in it like an academic in a worn corduroy coat. At 39, Haskell is a writer and historian whose literary achievements are compiling fast and it’s hard not to take notice. From his own published books, “FoolProof” and “Joker,” to his literary blog, Littoral, the publisher at Sand Paper Press, and now entering his second year as the director of the Key West Literary Seminar, Haskell is cracking the spine on Key West’s next chapter of literary accomplishments. But none of this is new to Haskell; the world of books has always been his calling. His mother, Monica Haskell, was also director of the Key West Literary Seminar. “My first job was stuffing envelopes for the Seminar for a penny apiece,” said Haskell, who was born on Big Coppitt. Haskell attended Key West High and went on to Bard College to study poetry with Pulitzer Prize winner John Ashbery, who called his work “quietly gripping.” Haskell returned home and, after years of attending and volunteering at KWLS, was hired in 2008. Now as director, Haskell is bringing some of the most influential and noteworthy authors to Key West. That’s his day job. Haskell is working on two new and notable books: “The Jews Of Key West 1823-1969,” and publishing American poet Charles Olson’s notebooks from Key West. Haskell is certainly leading, in every regard, the next generation of writers to keep Key West on the literary map.

NATIVE POET & HISTORIAN 20 QUESTIONS WITH ARLO HASKELL 1. Full Name? Arlo Bliss Haskell. 2. Worst nickname? Red. 3. Name one famous person you would bring back to life; why? Wallace Stevens, just so I could ask him (when the singing ended) why the glassy lights of the fishing boats mastered the night and portioned out the sea. 4. If you could put one famous person in elected position in the Keys, who and why? I think we should never elect a famous person ever again. 5. What book or writer do you secretly love but are embarrassed to admit it? My pleasures are more nerdy than guilty. I can spend hours reading 19th century administrative reports, for example, and am much more likely to do that than pick up a mystery novel. 6. Name three words you would ban from the English language. We have the best words, and I just want poets to keep making more of them.

7. Which TV, movie or super hero character is your alter ego? All of the male “Bloodline” characters, at one time or another… 8. What is your nerdiest passion? I’m a self-taught coder, and I love running into and solving new problems in PHP or other if/then logical formulas or codes. I also love building databases. 9. If you could take three items on a deserted island, what? Why? Water, water, water (not a drop to drink). 10. If you were invisible, what would you do in Key West? I wouldn’t tell anyone. 11. What was your first thought this morning? “Maybe she’ll fall back asleep” (re: my daughter, crying in the pre-dawn light). 12. Favorite guilty pleasure? A Manhattan or two (or three?). 13. Kindle or real book? Real book. 14. If not a writer, then what dream job would you have? I’d rather just do the research, it’s more fun than writing. 15. You are sitting at a diner counter eating. Who would you want to walk in and sit next to you? I don’t talk to strangers. Finish these sentences. 16. My family would describe me as… funny, I hope? 17. My autobiography would be titled… “Life Without a Deadline: Dreams Do Come True.” 18. I am always searching for… good conch fritters. 19. The world needs more… intelligence and more readers. 20. When I go, I will go… late, probably.

PUSHING THE HOT BUTTONS

CONTROVERSIAL ISSUES REMAIN FOR CITY COMMISSION By Hays Blinckmann and Britt Myers

A

lthough the paint is barely dry in the new City Hall, city commissioners will continue to tackle controversial issues lingering from 2016. Among the hot-button items re-emerging in the new year, Commissioner Jimmy Weekley has seemingly been the author (and the headliner) of two of the most debated policy proposals. And while few question Weekley’s motives (he has long been an advocate for the quality of life in the same hometown his grandfather migrated to in 1910), his proposals have left some on the dais and the community scratching their heads on why exactly the commissioner is uncovering rocks that might be best left undisturbed. Yet the seasoned commissioner continues to advocate for what he calls “ideas that are who we are as a community.” Here is a brief look at two of Weekley’s city policy proposals to keep an eye on over the next several weeks, along with his points and counterpoints from fellow commissioners: (Note: Google is a recommended study tool to fully understand several of the items.)

1. Deeming Key West a “Sanctuary City.” Sanctuary cities date back to 1979 in the United States and there are more than 200 including Miami, Boston, Chicago, Washington D.C., New York and San Francisco. Sanctuary cities adopt the philosophy of leaving the pursuit and policing of illegal immigration to the federal government (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), not municipal employees. Commissioner Jimmy Weekley: “It’s a rough estimate, but perhaps 10 to 15 percent of our workforce is undocumented. But they pay taxes, raise their families here and are involved in the community and they aren’t a criminal element. Why should we do the work of the federal government/ICE and create bad relations between local law enforcement and the community?” Mayor Craig Cates: “It all sounds good that we are very welcoming and open, which we are, but the reality is it could increase our costs for affordable housing and affect our quality of life. In other cities it has been proven to attract illegal immigrants without the ability to track who they are and even whether they pay taxes. Also, it potentially complicates our ties with military — specifically the Navy. And any type of federal assistance could be affected. I just think we have enough issues right now dealing with affordable housing and our quality of life and this is too big a risk.”  

2. Formally criminalizing ‘conversion therapy.’ The act of trying to convert a homosexual to a heterosexual through spiritual or psychological counseling, known as conversion therapy, is subject to legal fines, but is not a jailable offense. While most would agree that conversion therapy has no place in the Southernmost City, some argue that Weekley’s proposal is superfluous. There are no prior cases to raise alarm and some feel the policy opens the city up to unwarranted legal scrutiny. Commissioner Jimmy Weekley: “This won’t cost the city anything but it could affect someone’s life, an adolescent life. And I would rather be proactive than reactive. The ordinance would be drafted similar to other cities’ such as Miami Beach. I have garnered a lot of silent support for these issues from the community and I would rather have them on the books than not. We promote a ‘live and let live’ idea in Key West, and I want to keep moving forward with that.” Commissioner Sam Kaufman: “I don’t think anyone supports conversion therapy. I certainly don’t. However, for us as a city, it just raises religious freedom, regulatory and potentially 1st Amendment issues that the state has prohibitions for local government to get involved in. I’m thinking like a lawyer, but it just seems like a tricky thing for us to do and it raises a lot of questions we need to address.”

S

itting on a hilltop watching a flag football game in 1978 started Diane Beruldsen’s love for the game. Beruldsen is the founder and president of International Women’s Flag Football Association and the 26th annual Kelly McGillis Classic football championship happening Jan. 23 through Jan. 30 in Key West. With 20 teams of women and girls from around the world, and 10 local teams, Beruldsen traveled to local schools to recruit interested fourth and fifth graders for the event. In 2001, there were 48 teams. “When I coach these girls, that’s when you see the magic happen,” she said. “I am particularly thankful to the local principals who let me come and make a presentation.” The event is named for and endorsed by Kelly McGillis, the actress and former Key West resident who starred in "Top Gun" and "Witness.” Endurance swimmer Diana Nyad, who became the first person to swim from Cuba to the Keys without a shark cage, will deliver the event's keynote address and serve as grand marshal of the parade on Thursday, Jan. 26 at 4:30 p.m. from La Te Da in Key West. Other speakers include historian Carol Wynne, a specialist on the heritage of indigenous women in the United States.

She’s a really good coach and really nice.” Games begin Friday, Jan. 27 at 9 a.m. at the Wicker Field Sports Complex on Kennedy Drive. Styles of play are 8 on 8 (semi-contact), 7 on 7 and 5 on 5 (non-contact). The playoffs will be held Sunday evening against the top U.S. team and top international team. “We are a women’s organization first,” said Beruldsen. “We don’t care about winning or losing, it’s all about the fun.” The tournament also features daily halftime games for players and spectators, an arm wrestling contest, a toilet paper relay, wheelbarrow and tandem bicycle races, nightly parties and Sunday awards events for girls' and women's teams.

Two shows in one T Murder mystery wrapped in a musical

ake one whodunit, two actors, 20 characters, a piano and what do you have? “Murder for Two,” a murder mystery that’s also a musical, starting a three-week run next week in Key West. The musical comedy created by actor/writers Joe Kinosian and Kellen Blair will appear at the Red Barn Theatre, 319 Duval St., Friday, Jan. 20 through Sunday, Feb. 12, six nights a week. All curtains are at 8 pm. “It’s a snazzy evening,” said J. Scott Lapp, the director of the show, “two great actors, twenty different characters, one piano, lots of great songs. It’s a treat to watch these guys navigate the show around the center stage piano and still make you ‘see’ the story.” The mystery is: Who killed novelist Arthur Whitney inside his spooky mansion on the night of his surprise birthday party? Was it Arthur’s bitter wife? The ballerina? The secret-spilling psychiatrist? The

student criminologist? The three tough tykes from a boys’ choir? Or one of the dozen or so other characters who show up? And will Detective Marcus ferret out the killer? Chicago native Joe Kinosian – who wrote the book and music with partner and lyricist Kellen Blair – plays all the suspects, while Noel Carey plays the beleaguered Detective Marcus. They both take spins at the piano – sometimes at the same time. “Murder For Two” has won awards from Drama Desk, Drama League, Outer Critics Circle, Lucille Lortel, and the Joseph Jefferson Award for Best New Musical. The New York Times called it “…an ingenious miniature musical in the form of a snazzy vaudevillian act.” Tickets are available at redbarntheatre.com/tickets or by calling the box office at 305-296-9911. There will be an Opening Night After-party following the Jan. 20 performance, and tickets holders for that night are invited. —Contributed

Meet Bixby, her human & Charlie Chicken MIKE SAYS HE ‘TRADED BARS FOR HANDLE BARS’ BEN HENNINGTON

E

BEN HARRINGTON/Contributed

ven with an empty purse one can have a pocket full of dreams. I recently had the pleasure of meeting Bixby, a rescue doggie from Austin, Texas, his human and Charlie Chicken. In 2009, Bixby was rescued by Mike Minnick and was a yard dog for a couple of years. However, one day Mike was feeling complacent and a friend offered him a ticket to Burning Man. This was the catalyst Mike realized he needed to revamp his life. He quit his job and initiated an unknown journey with his best friend Bixby. Mike, the chain-smoking bartender set out for something new. When his truck broke down and he was stranded in Terlingua, Texas was when he met many cross-country bicyclists. And that’s when Mike’s real journey began, crossing the country on a bicycle — himself, Bixby and a rubber chicken safety flag (aka Charlie Chicken). A chance meeting with a

reporter in Miami, who fell in love with Bixby, earned them a spot on prime-time television. But it also revealed their mission: to tell their story and use it as a tool to help animal shelters spread the word about the powerful and positive influences of rescue dogs. The dream began May 15, 2013. The adventure has taken them 19,000 miles all over the U.S. on a bike with Bixby’s bed mounted on the back. They’re still pedaling, making new friends everywhere and bringing attention to shelter animal adoption. The moral of the story is that Mike’s life used to be a chore, but now it’s an adventure he would have never believed five years ago. He is seeing the country on a bicycle and playing fetch with his best companion in the coolest of places. In Key West, they visited the Florida Keys SPCA, Key West Wildlife Center, Reef Relief, and Turtle Hospital, among others. Mike is living the impossible dream, getting along by selling “Hug Your Dog” T-shirts. And Mike is no longer smoking. Follow the adventure on WheresBixby.com.

“Chase your dreams and they get bigger; catch your stick, and throw it further down the road.” — Bixby, the rescued pound dog, with human Mike.

hetoric was the catchphrase last political season and many politicians relied on negative and insulting speech as a means to an end. There was a noticeable lack of manners among politicians, the media and the general public. It was a war of words where no one was left unscathed or unmocked. In order to heal the political wounds, women from around the nation are coming together post-Inauguration to reaffirm the American ideal of equal rights for

everyone regardless of race, color, gender, religion or sexual orientation. On Jan. 21, a national Women’s March will take place in Washington, D.C., as well as “sister” marches around the country, including in Key West. Five hundred to 1,000 locals are expected to walk down Duval Street starting at 2 p.m., conveying the message that women, as well as all Americans, are not just political fodder but maintain the same inalienable rights. “This is not an ‘anti’ (Donald) Trump rally or protest. This is 100 percent about acknowledging, in a peaceful way, women’s rights and human rights in general,” said organizer Jamie Mattingly. “While free speech is allowed, we would like to discourage negativity from hecklers or protest signs from anyone. Everyone is invited as long as they support, peacefully, human rights.” A committee of more than a dozen women who couldn’t travel to Washington gathered with Mattingly to help organize the local event. “I was a part of the take-a-stand baby boomer generation that fought hard for the legislation we have today,” said organizer Linda Cunningham, “And it is a joy to see the younger generation stepping forward to preserve and protect the laws that are fundamental to our democracy. They under-

stand legislation can be taken away.” For Cunningham, the march is about looking forward and being proactive and the desire to leave the political mudslinging behind. “The community is really coming together for this and we are so appreciative,” re-stated Mattingly. They credit Officer Steve Torrence for providing support from the city, While Wonderdog Productions donated 100 percent time and design for posters and T-shirts. The overall goal of the march is to show the new administration that social injustice will not be tolerated and that Americans are united. For more information about the march, go to www.wellinformedpublic. com or, on Facebook, Women’s March on Duval.

Pete Jarvis’ lessons in longevity SUSANNE EAST-BROOKE www.keysweekly.com

A

s a young boy in Lake George, New York, Pete Jarvis poked around on the keys of his grandma's old out-of-tune piano, but in spite of being able to put together notes to make up chords and learning Christmas songs by ear, after a few formal lessons, his first piano teacher told his mother that he had "no musical ability." Thankfully that didn't stop Pete from performing. He was around age 10 when he got his first acoustic guitar, a Kay guitar from Montgomery Ward, and then he mowed lawns all summer until he saved enough money to buy his first electric guitar, a Lafayette with a whammy bar and a National Auto

amp with reverb, all for $60. He and his friends started a band called The Gladiators, but they didn't have a vocalist so their set list was limited to "Walk Don't Run" and "Wipeout." At around age 15 he started singing and was heavily influenced by Bob Dylan and Buffalo Springfield. After playing bass in several different bands, including a band called Rockwood, an Alice Cooper cover band, Pete joined the Army and served at the Demilitarized Zone in Korea. While there he wrote a song called "The Ballad of the DMZ" and won a talent contest. After serving in the military Pete was married briefly, but he missed playing music full time. In 1989 he followed his best friend, Ray Jett, to Key West to help him open a jewelry store. Itching to play music, Pete walked into a restaurant at the time called the Portside, at the corner of Duval and Green, and got his first gig playing for tips four nights a week. He went on to play at La Concha, the old Rum Runners, and in 1992 landed at Sloppy Joe's, where he started an act called "Two Guys Having Fun." After the other guy in the act ran off with a bartender, Pete met bass player Wayne Hammond and thus began the legendary "Pete and Wayne" musical comedy act that has been entertaining locals and tourists alike for over 20 years. These days, Pete and Wayne can still be heard at Sloppy Joe's on Thursdays and Fridays from 5:30-9:30 p.m. Pete can also be seen around town in pick-up bands with Caffeine Carl, Raven Cooper, Michelle Dravis, Zack Seamiller, John LaMere, Terry Cassidy, Gary Hempsey, Paul Cotton and Jerry Jeff Walker when he's in town.

Bartender Rhiannon loves her job and the people at Mangrove Mama's. KRISTEN LIVENGOOD/ Keys Weekly

MANGROVE MAMA'S

A

little hideaway at MM 20, Mangrove Mama's back bar is the host to many adoring locals and even a couple of trop-rock songs. Bartender Rhiannon grew up in the Keys with her grandparents. Her grandma was a local preschool teacher and grandpa worked for a local paper. "I just got back from visiting them in Connecticut," she said, but is glad to be back home. The Mangrove Breeze is the most popular drink according to Rhiannon, and during happy hour is a steal for $4. Happy hour runs from 3 to 6 p.m. seven days a week. Made with four Cruzan rums and a specialty blend of fruit juice, Rhiannon says, people love them. Her co-worker Ben said the addition of an umbrella for the drinks, coming soon, will just add to the magic of the cocktail. "It's definitely an island drink," she said, adding to his sentiment. The best part of working at Mangrove Mama's is the big happy family atmosphere and the relaxed environment. Her favorite thing on the menu: the coconut shrimp. Mangrove Mama’s is located at MM 19, bayside.

Living aviation history WORLD WAR II AIRCRAFT COMING TO MARATHON

A

tour including rare World War II aircraft will soon land in Marathon. The Collings Foundation’s 110-city Wings of Freedom tour will bring a vintage Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, Consolidated B-24 Liberator, North American B-25 Mitchell and P-51 Mustang to the Florida Keys Marathon International Airport from Monday to Thursday, Jan. 30 - Feb. 2. The B-17 is one of only eight in flying condition in the United States. The B-24J Liberator is the sole remaining example of its type flying in the world. The B-25 is best known for being used in the daring Doolittle raid and the P-51 "Toulouse Nuts" fighter received the 2016 Oshkosh Grand Champion Award for restoration. The B-17, B-25 & B-24 were the backbone of the American effort during the war from 1942 to 1945 and were famous for their ability to sustain damage and still accomplish the mission. The P-51 Mustang was affectionately known as the bombers’ “Little Friend” – saving countless crews from attacking Axis fighters. After the war, many aircraft were scrapped for their raw aluminum. The tour is scheduled to arrive at noon on Monday, Jan. 30, departing after noon exercises on Thursday, Feb. 2.

Vintage airplanes are on a 110-city tour are: 30;

Hours of ground tours and display • Noon to 4:30 p.m. Monday, Jan.

• 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, Jan. 31 and Feb. 1; and • 9 a.m. to noon Thursday, Feb 2. Visitors may explore the aircraft at a price of $15 for adults and $5 for those under 12. Thirty-minute flights are available for $400 and up, depending on the aircraft; they are normally scheduled before and after the ground tour times. For reservations and information on flights, call 800-568-8924 or visit www.collingsfoundation.org.

PUT A GOOD BUZZ ON

JONATHAN EDWARDS AT THE KEY WEST THEATER

Jonathan Edwards. RANDY FINDLAY/Contributed

nce a Jonathan Edwards song is in your head, it’s truly hard to get it out. His 1971 self-titled debut album contained so many memorable hits such as “Sunshine,” “Shanty,” “Everybody Knows Her” and “Emma” that 45 years later, it’s still easy to remember the lyrics. His most popular hit was “Sunshine” (“Sunshine go away today, I don't feel much like dancing. Some man's come he's trying to run my life; don't know what he's asking”) which went to number 4 on the Billboard charts and become an anthem against the Vietnam War and Richard Nixon, and, Edwards noted, “It may still be relevant today.” For almost a half century, singer songwriter Jonathan Edwards has played his folksy/ bluesy country music with some of the greats of the industry such as Vince Gill, Alison Krauss, Shawn Colvin, Cheryl Wheeler, Emmylou Harris, and Don McLean. In the beginning, Edwards opened for such greats as The Allman Brothers and B.B. King. Now with five decades of singing and 16 albums under his belt, Edwards still loves touring and playing before an audience. “I have been coming to sing in Key West —Jonathan Edwards, singer. since the ‘60s and have known Jimmy Buffett for ages,” said Edwards, who appreciates the small-town similarities to his home in New England. This will be his first show at the Key West Theater and will consist of just piano player Tom Snow and Edwards on stage. “I always hit the high points with my audience, but I have been doing this for almost 50 years and now I try not to just stick to the usual repertoire,” said Edwards. “If I think of a good cover song on the car ride over, usually we just go ahead and do it.” Edwards loves the spontaneity of music, and created his most recent album, “Tomorrow’s Child,” in no more than two takes per song, recorded at Zac Brown’s Studio in Nashville and produced by acclaimed songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Darrell Scott. “It makes the album more real,” teased Edwards. Bob Dylan recently put songwriters back on the map by winning the Nobel Prize, proving no matter how old the craft or the artist, it’s still about the music.

“I feel like I am in the supernova of my career; people are really responding to my whole body of work.”

PARADE OF HEARTS WOUNDED WARRIOR RIDE

rom the Upper Keys to Key West, dozens took part in the Wounded Warrior project’s annual soldier ride last weekend. Starting Friday morning at the Key Largo VFW Post 10211, the ride had stops at Coral Shores High School, the Postcard Inn in Islamorada, Marathon Fire Station and the Seven Mile Bridge. On Saturday, 30 wounded soldiers in Key West rode from Boca Chica NAS down Duval and ended in Bayview Park, with cheering supporters all along the way. Commanding Officer Capt. Bobby Baker summed it up: “Key West joins you today to say thank you for our freedom.” In return, Adam Faine, spokesperson for the Warriors, said, “It’s the gratitude the riders feel from the community that brings them back to life.” —Weekly Staff report Photos by HAYS BLINCKMANN, GABRIEL SANCHEZ and SARA MATTHIS/ Keys Weekly

KEY WEST WEEKLY / JANUARY 13, 2017

KIM BASSETT

Q. What happens to your body when you take heroin? Immediate reactions include clouded mental functioning and slowed cardiac and respiratory functioning, which can lead to asphyxiation and/or heart attack. Long-term effects include soft tissue infections, liver or kidney disease, AIDS, hepatitis and other blood-borne illnesses, permanent damage to soft nasal tissue, chronic insomnia and sexual dysfunction.

www.keysweekly.com

Q. What is heroin? Heroin is processed from morphine, and can be smoked, snorted or injected into veins or muscles. The drug binds to and activates specific receptors in the brain causing you to become addicted to it both physically and psychologically. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, in 2011, 4.2 million Americans over the age of 12 had tried heroin at least one time, with 23 percent of those individuals becoming dependent on the substance as a result. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) just reported that there are more deaths from heroin than from gunfire. Q. Why is heroin so dangerous? Heroin is incredibly addictive, it’s cheap and relatively easy to obtain. Addicts come in all shapes and sizes and all walks of life, wealthy, poor, homeless, parents, children. Addiction knows no bounds. One of the most dangerous things is that no one really knows what is mixed in with the heroin they buy. Ingredients can vary wildly. Some batches are more “pure” than others. Some heroin even has strychnine, a toxic substance used as a pesticide, mixed in with it. In addition to the unknown ingredients, heroin is dangerous because it interferes with the area of the brain that controls auto-functioning, such as breathing and reaction time. When combined with other consciousnessaltering substances like alcohol, the effects can be deadly that much more quickly. Q. What draws people to use heroin? People use heroin for any number of reasons, sometimes pain relief, other times for the fun of the high. Often people begin their drug addiction through the use of prescription medications, after an accident, surgery or some disease. When their physician stops prescribing the medication or they cannot afford to buy the prescription medication, they turn to the much cheaper heroin as a substitute. Pain medications such as oxycontin or oxycodone have properties similar to heroin. Heroin is known to cause an initial rush of euphoria, making the user feel happy, even euphoric. As the drug leaves the system, this is replaced by anxiety, restlessness and even depression. Each time a person uses heroin, more of the drug must be used to achieve the same “high.”

WHAT, EXACTLY, DOES IT DO TO THE HUMAN BODY? COMMUNITY MEETING:

BY THE NUMBERS

The Monroe County Coalition, dedicated to drug awareness efforts, is having a meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 17 at 2 p.m. at the Department of Children and Families, 1111 12th St., Key West. Speakers will address marijuana legalization progress, presence of opiates in Monroe County and substance abuse trends.

16 - Heroin-related arrests made by Monroe County Sheriff’s Office in 2016.

Jim Hall will be presenting on the 2016 Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey. For the last 30 years, Hall has tracked patterns and trends of substance abuse in Florida as the state’s representative on the National Institute on Drug Abuse’s Community Epidemiology Work Group. Hall’s work focuses on converting research about emerging drug abuse problems into community-based solutions.

4 - Of the 32 deaths in Monroe County from January to June of 2016, four persons had the presence of heroin in their system plus other drugs such as cocaine and fentanyl. All of them were labeled accidental deaths. Data for the second half of 2016 is not available. 11 - Of the 32 deaths in Monroe County from January to June of 2016, eleven persons had the presence of other opiates in their system such as oxycodone, morphine, codeine and fentanyl. All but one were labeled accidental. 59 - The number of times Narcan was administered by Marathon EMS professionals during 2016. Narcan is given to patients who are overdosing. 43 - The number of times Narcan was administered by Monroe County EMS professionals during only five months of 2016. Data for the full year was not available. In comparison, only 41 doses were administered for the entire year of 2015, and 34 doses in 2014.  

Q. How does heroin affect the brain? Heroin addiction is one of the hardest addictions to beat. Relapse is common because the drug actually changes your brain. Once heroin enters the brain, it is converted back to morphine, a powerful drug used primarily to block pain. The morphine then binds to existing opioid receptors in the brain, which causes the feeling of pain relief and euphoria at 10 times the normal dopamine levels. By exposing your body to increased levels of dopamine, your body adjusts and builds a tolerance. The result is a lower pain threshold. Some studies have shown that these changes can occur after a single dose of heroin, resulting in the user “needing” more and more heroin just to feel “normal.” I once heard a physician/researcher explain that heroin works in the same area of the brain that controls breathing and heartbeats. He explained that heroin becomes as important as breathing. Once addicted, your body believes you must have heroin in order to live — just like breathing. This makes it incredibly difficult to stop using. Q. How is heroin addiction treated? To begin tackling heroin addiction, both the physical and psychological must be addressed. Thankfully, a wide range of behavioral modification methods exist to address primarily the psychological aspect of heroin addiction. These include traditional detox programs, counseling, and behavioral therapy, relapse prevention, coping and skills training, and support group participation. In conjunction with these programs, specific medications can be used to help wean the patient’s dependence. — Kim Bassett is a registered nurse and health care executive with more than 25 years experience.

op-ranked sailors from throughout the world will compete in Quantum Key West Race Week 2017, the 30th anniversary of one of the most prestigious sailing events on the international regatta circuit. The event, sponsored by international sailmaker Quantum Sails, is the largest in the U.S. for nonOlympic racers, although participants include Olympic aspirants and medalists. Nearly 600 sailors representing competitors from the America's Cup, Olympic Games, Volvo Ocean Race and other events will gather in Key West to enjoy competitive sailing in subtropical waters and stiff Atlantic Ocean breezes. Notable 2017 competitors include past America's Cup and Rolex Yachtsman of the Year winners. "Quantum Key West Race Week has a sterling reputation as a sailors' regatta, offering some of the most consistent racing conditions of any venue in the world," said John Fisher, regatta chairman. "We have the world's top sailors and the newest and best boats and equipment." More than 90 registered boats in nine classes, representing 11 nations, will sail on three racing circuits. With practice sessions on Sunday, Jan. 15, harbor starts are scheduled at 9:45 a.m. Monday through Friday, Jan. 16-20, with racing from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Ten races are scheduled per class, and courses are to be determined each

KNOT & SHOT CONTEST

Nightly at 8:15 p.m. from Monday, Jan.16 through Friday, Jan. 20, sailors and any interested challengers will race to tie a bowline and lasso a piling – with a couple of extra challenges. At Schooner Wharf Bar, entrants swallow a shot of rum from an ice luge. They then tie a bowline and use it to lasso a piling that is on wheels several feet away, pull the piling to themselves and drink the beer sitting on its base, turning the supposedly empty bottle upside down on their head. The 2016 champion Brian Plate of SUP Key West finished with a time of 7:52.

day based on wind direction. Competitors include Bill Hardesty of San Diego, California, winner of 12 world championships, sailing on the 23-foot-long J/70 Flojito y Cooperando; and New York City's Hannah Swett, a past Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year who is to skipper the J/70 Sparkle. The J/70 is the event's largest class with more than 35 entries. The regatta's top class is the TP 52, which kicks off its 52 Super Series in Key West with 11 boats representing Argentina, England, France, Germany, Russia and the U.S. Morning weather briefings, postrace seminars for sailors, festivities and nightly awards celebrations will be at Waterfront Brewery, 201 William St. Sailing fans can view the races on private vessels or book seats on spectator boats. Prime land-based viewing locations include Key West's beaches, restaurants and resorts.

Conch Republic Cup TEAMS RACE FROM KEYS TO CUBA

J

ust two days after the Quantum Key West Race Week regatta, sailing teams will race from the Florida Keys to two Cuban cities. Sailing teams racing monohulls and multihulls will compete during the 13-day Conch Republic Cup, set for Sunday, Jan. 22, through Friday, Feb. 3. Sailors will race from Key West to Cuba's Varadero and Havana, and back. Hosted by Key West Community Sailing Center and Cuba's Hemingway International Yacht Club, sailors will complete a triangle: a 100-mile contest from Key West to Varadero, a 90-mile race from Varadero to Havana, and a 90-mile leg from Havana to Key West. The race began in 1997 with a Key West race to Varadero, and expanded to include Havana in 1999. The Cup had a 13-year hiatus after U.S. authorities enforced a Cuban embargo in 2003. The race resumed earlier this year, following an easing of tensions between the U.S. and Cuba.

The event's Race Village and registration will open at Dante’s Key West at 10 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 22. Exhibition racing and vendor displays are scheduled Sunday and Monday, Jan. 23, daily from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The regatta formally begins Tuesday, Jan. 24, with a 5 p.m. start from Key West to Varadero. On Thursday, Jan. 26, sailors are scheduled to sail from Varadero along the Cuban coast to Havana. On Sunday, Jan. 29, a Havana Harbor buoy race at Morro Castle and a yacht parade along the Malecon are scheduled. Sailors race back to Key West on Thursday, Feb. 2, with an awards celebration scheduled Friday, Feb. 3, at Dante's. The 2016 Cup attracted 435 sailors on 54 racing boats representing 25 states and five countries. South Carolina skipper Eddie Evans, a 40-plus year veteran sailing his Beneteau Oceanis 381 yacht, Naut-On Call, won the 2016 Cup.
