rees should be named “Person of the Year” here in Key West. No other subject has actually gained more press, discussion, government resources, except “Irma” in 2017-18. We talk about trees a lot: saving, cutting and now picking an official Key West tree and whoa, did that cause some debate last week. Should the official Key West Tree be a royal poinciana? Who knew an argument could arise? But it did, and the poor poinciana was definitely thrown some shade (hehehe) over a sapodilla or Spanish lime. So we asked locals …

Should there be so much debate over picking an official city tree? “It’s my job to say what the people want; if they want a royal poinciana and vote for it, then that’s a democracy, and I support that,” said Urban Forestry Manager Karen DeMaria. “As long as the public is aware.”

“I like that people are so passionate about the subject,” said Megan Miller. “But please, use your head.”

“Probably not, but this is Key West and everyone debates everything around here,” said Ken Floyd.

“No. It’s absolutely ridiculous,” said Celeste Castle. “There are far more important things in life.”

“There should be debate because the citizens of Key West should preserve the things that are native to Key West. The royal poinciana represents our spring,” said Andrea Elkins.

NUMBER OF THE WEEK Since Hurricane Irma, 59 surveys by Texas A&M University estimate the Key deer population at about 573 individuals (confidence interval 441-743 deer) on Big Pine and No Name Keys, and more surveys are scheduled in May. After the screwworm infestation was contained in March of 2017, the herd was about 870 individuals.

SEVEN-FIGURE SYSTEM Commission stalls on potential Cudjoe communication tower KATIE ATKINS

katie@keysweekly.com

communications conundrum in the Florida Keys postHurricane Irma has spurred local municipalities to beef up technology in preparation for future disasters. Monroe County commissioners talked at length Wednesday about a potential radio tower for Cudjoe Key about eight or nine times as high as Keys lighthouses, and briefly mentioned one for Marathon over 100 feet tall, but questioned their necessity or whether the towers could solve the severe communication problems experienced after the storm.

Anyone in the Florida Keys with a cellphone south of Islamorada in the week post-Irma knows it was basically useless for four to five days until service was restored. The struggle went far beyond that, however, as there was little to no communication among emergency first responders, police and government officials without meeting in person. “Towers are good things to have,” Mark Pallans, chief operating officer of Pallans Associates Communication Consultants, told the commission. “Homeowners don’t think they are, but you need them for communications no matter what kind of communications they are,” he said.

Pallans is the communications consultant to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. The Cudjoe Key tower, which would potentially go on Blimp Road, could support emergency communication, but would not necessarily benefit the Florida Keys for day-to-day use, Pallans told commissioners. “The tower in itself would be the platform to support cellphone, television and the sheriff’s radio system … as an additional backup solution,” Pallans said, adding the microwave system it would operate on is pricey — seven figures pricey. Typically, private companies install the towers and then lease the antennae or dish space to other companies. The commission agreed to wait until its July 18 meeting before making any decisions about the Cudjoe Key tower. The potential Marathon tower was not discussed. According to county Director of Information Technology Alan MacEachern, most communication services in the Florida Keys are provided via cable in one form or another. These are routed either by pole or underground, and any service provided by these methods is subject to flooding and wind damage, as evidenced post-Irma. In the meantime, the county’s decades-old phone system is being upgraded, he said, and a microwave broadband system is being placed on top of the Marathon Government Center by local Internet provider Broadwave. “This is a huge step forward for us because it gives us another layer of redundancy. I’m pretty interested to see how it works,” he said.

WEEKLY INTERVIEW

KEY WEST WEEKLY / MAY 17, 2018

NEW WEATHERMAN Chip Kasper takes over as chief meteorologist

I

IN CHARGE

n his nearly 20 years of being a forecaster, Chip Kasper has seen more than his fair share of wild storms – 27 to be exact – including the big ones like hurricanes Wilma and Irma. For the last decade, he’s served as the marine program meteorologist for the Florida Keys National Weather Service in Key West, an absolutely vital role in a community where so many rely on accurate weather preparedness. All of this and more qualified Kasper to be named the new meteorologist in charge, announced May 14. He’s taking over for Matt Moreland, who served from April 2015 to September 2017 before being promoted to meteorologist in charge of the National Weather Service Office in San Diego, Calif. Kasper earned a meteorology degree from Florida State University, and has worked in National Weather Service offices serving the Tampa Bay area and state of Alabama. Last week, he accepted, on behalf of the entire Florida Keys National Weather Service team, the 2018 Florida Governor’s Hurricane Conference “Public/ Private Achievement Award.” This award is presented to an individual or small or large organization from the not-for-profit or private sector that has made a substantial contribution to hurricane preparedness, response, recovery, mitigation or research in the state of Florida. He first visited the Florida Keys in the early 1990s, and said he “was drawn like a magnet to its maritime culture and lifestyle.” When the opportunity to live and work here presented itself in the late 1990s, “I jumped on it,” he said. “I very much enjoyed working with and learning from the diverse Florida Keys marine community. I still do.” It’s that and working closely with the U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Navy and helping them protect Americans on the sea. “These are special endeavors, ones that I can get behind because our mission in the National Weather Service is to provide weather, water and climate information that supports decisions that protect life and property,” he said.

Full Name? Kennard “Chip” Kasper. Do you have a life credo or motto? Actions speak louder than words. Worst joke or saying about the weather? I don’t mind the jokes. We are all subject to the forces of Mother Nature, and each person has a right to comment, joke, complain, etc. What’s your favorite “weather” movie? “Twister.” It actually has a great soundtrack. Check it out. What’s on your bucket list? A visit to the Hawaiian islands. What is your idea of perfect happiness? Any family gathering involving water, sun and mirth. What is it that you most dislike? Hubris.

Which is your favorite way to give back to the community? Volunteering during fundraising events at my kids’ school. I also am current president of the Port of Key West Propeller Club, a nonprofit maritime industry association. What is the trait you most deplore in yourself? When I am concentrating, it looks like I am frowning. (I’m really smiling inside!). Question you get most often about the weather? “What’s this hurricane season look like?” If invisible in Key West, what would you do? I would find the very best spots to view local shows and music acts. On what occasion do you lie? Honesty is always the best policy. Favorite guilty pleasure? Large café con leche — two sugars. What job would you secretly love to have? A ship captain. Most important thing you tell your kids? I love you. Lunch with one famous person, whom would you choose? Harry Boyer. He was chief of the Weather Bureau in Key West for over three decades during the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. Finish these sentences.. My friends and family would describe me as … Competent, honest, and responsible. My autobiography would be titled … “Losing Latitude; Gaining Wisdom.” I can never refuse … a call for help. When I go, I will go … when my time has come.

HURRICANE WORKSHOP SET FOR MAY 24 T

he new director of the National Hurricane Center is set to kick off an annual hurricane preparedness workshop for the Florida Keys tourism industry Thursday, May 24 at 1 p.m. at the Tennessee Williams Theatre in Key West. Ken Graham was selected as the new hurricane center chief in March and arrived at the South Florida-based center after previous director Rick Knabb left the position last spring. Graham assumed the role of the nation’s hurricane warning chief after serving as meteorologist in charge at the National Weather Service’s New Orleans/Baton Rouge office. During his presentation, Graham is to focus on new forecast tools the NHC is bringing online in 2018, as well as other aspects of the center’s efforts to monitor and issue watches and warnings when a tropical cyclone threatens a region. Other scheduled presenters include Kennard “Chip” Kasper, newly appointed meteorologist in charge for the

National Weather Service office in Key West; Marty Senterfitt, Monroe County Emergency Management director; and Andy Newman, media relations director for the Monroe County Tourist Development Council. The final session is a panel discussion titled “Lessons Learned from (Hurricane) Irma” with participants including Senterfitt; County Administrator Roman Gastesi; County Sheriff Rick Ramsay; Marathon City Manager Chuck Lindsey; Key West City Manager Jim Scholl; Deputy Commander Lexia Littlejohn of U.S. Coast Guard Sector Key West; and Jon Rizzo, the warning coordinator for the Key West National Weather Service Office. “We’re confident many of the challenges residents and businesses faced after Hurricane Irma, such as re-entry, debris removal and housing, will be discussed and new solutions presented,” said Jodi Weinhofer, president of the Lodging Association of the Florida Keys and Key West, which is organizing the workshop in partnership with the Monroe County Tourist Development Council. “There will always be the chance that the Keys can be impacted by a tropical storm or hurricane, and being prepared is the solution for resilience and recovery.” Cost to attend the conference is $10 per person and reservations can be made by calling the Lodging Association at 305-296-4959. Although the workshop is geared to the tourism industry, representatives of any business may attend. — Contributed

ON A ‘MISSION’ Styx weathers changes, keeps playing

W

ith a new album – number 16 – due out in a matter of weeks, Styx will perform in Key West on Thursday, May 17. The album, “The Mission,” is envisioned as a chronicle of the first manned mission to Mars in the year 2033. Songs include “Gone Gone Gone,” “Radio Silence,” “Locomotive” and “Red Storm,” among others. The band spent almost two years off and on working on the music. Reflecting on the album, James “JY” Young – who shares lead vocal duties with Lawrence Gowan and Tommy Shaw – said, “Tommy likes to say, ‘From a tiny acorn a giant oak doth grow.’ … It shows how we work as a team. The skill level of the band has allowed us to go do things we just couldn’t have otherwise in the past.”

James “JY” Young: Lead vocals, guitars Tommy Shaw: Lead vocals, guitars Chuck Panozzo: Bass, vocals Todd Sucherman: Drums, percussion Lawrence Gowan: Lead vocals, keyboards
 Ricky Phillips: Bass, guitar, vocals

“Working on ‘The Mission’ was so fun and so easy,” said Jim Scott, who mixed the album at his Plyrz Studio in Nashville. “It was a very pure and simple mostly analog recording, and I mixed it the same way — no samples, and no shenanigans. Each time I listened back to it, I found each song could have other meanings and images separate from the overall space saga.” Founded in Chicago in 1972, Styx was the first band in rock history to have four consecutive certified multimillion-selling albums: 1977’s “The Grand Illusion,” 1978’s “Pieces of Eight,” 1979’s “Cornerstone” and 1981’s “Paradise Theatre.” The band has weathered changes both internal and external in its decades of existence. In 1984, after the successes of the late ’70s and early ’80s, members went their own ways for a time. After reuniting, Young and Shaw wanted to keep the band’s momentum intact, and they began to discuss how to do just that. But to move ahead, they had to part ways with founding member Dennis DeYoung — the man behind some of the band’s most indelible hits, including “Lady,” “The Grand Illusion,” and “Come Sail Away” — because, the band says, the collective chemistry had changed. “Dennis led the charge to the top of the charts,” said Young. “He’s an incredible singer, a motivated writer who wrote some great lyrics, and one very strong keyboard player. He just didn’t want to be part of a

democracy. We truly wish him well. We did some incredible work together, but there’s no basis for us to work together again.” The band has played more than 100 shows a year every year since 1999. On stage, the band is devoted to artistry. “We learned the art of theater from David Bowie,” said bassist Chuck Panozzo. “We opened for him on his first American tour at Performance Hall in Kansas City (on Oct. 15, 1972). When he entered the stage, it was such a mindblowing experience.” “We just want to keep on doing this,” said Shaw. “We want to let life take its course and let this music continue to be the soundtrack to it. It’s like a photo album where you keep adding some new photos of what’s in your house. You know, you’re adding some new furniture, and you’re also building onto the structure of the house, and you’re building the family. And this band’s photo album will continue to evolve as long as we live and play this music.” — Contributed

RAISING THE BAR

KEY WEST GUIDE WINS NATIONAL AWARD

Will Benson is the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation’s Volunteer of the Year. WILL BENSON/Contributed

By Katie Atkins and Hays Blinckmann

T

he fact that there’s so much more to being a fishing guide than owning a boat and having a captain’s license was the driving force behind a new local program – for which a Keys man is about to win a national award. Knowledge of resources, techniques and more are the elements Key West guide Will Benson hopes to teach through the new Blue Star Fishing Guide Program. The voluntary training and compliance program seeks to increase fishing guides’ knowledge and, ultimately, that of their clients, to conserve the unique marine ecosystem of the Keys. Benson was chairman of the working group which created Blue Star through the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, and has been named the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation’s Volunteer of the Year. “It’s a huge honor. It’s something that I’m very grateful and thankful for, but I owe a lot of thanks to other members of the sanctuary advisory council who have done a lot of work to make that council one of the best in the country,” Benson said. “My winning this is more or less a reflection of the professionalism everyone on the council brings to their seat.” The aim of the program is to raise the bar for the profession, Benson said. “Essentially, it’s an additional certification that recognizes the bestof-the-best fishing guides,” he said, and it has the potential to be a nationwide standard. Of Benson’s award, Sarah Fangman, superintendent of the FKNMS, said, “It’s especially incredible given the caliber of volunteers from around the nation.” FKNMS named Benson its Volunteer of the Year before he was chosen for the national award.

“He saw how the Blue Star program could be translated to fishing guides and worked tirelessly from the beginning to get the framework up and running with the sanctuary,” Fangman said. “We’re just the first to thank Benson.” She said through Blue Star, anglers will be able to find and hire fishing guides who “know the regulations and understand that they are in place to sustain the fisheries for the next generation.” The Blue Star Fishing Guide program provides online training for captains and crew members, covering general education about the national marine sanctuary, its diverse habitats and fisheries. Qualifying guides receive branded materials to market their business as a sanctuary partner, plus educational materials to share with clients and customers on their vessel. Fangman and Benson will travel to Washington, D.C., to accept the award in early June at the Ocean Awards Gala. For more information about the Blue Star Fishing Guide Program or to get involved, visit floridakeys.noaa.gov/ onthewater/bluestar.html. Benson also produces documentaries to spread awareness about the Florida Keys environment and conservation, which can be seen on his website, worldangling.com.

Salvation Army opens Big Pine Key recovery center

GUIDANCE/ CARE CENTER The Guidance/Care Center provides behavioral health services to adults, children and families. Following Hurricane Irma, staff members provided crisis counseling at the Disaster Recovery Centers for 12-hour shifts, 7 days a week, reaching more than 1,200 people. Loretta Geotis with Jim and Becky Smith of Salvation Army. The Smiths have been with Salvation Army for 40 years of disaster recovery. KRISTEN LIVENGOOD/Keys Weekly

“D

isasters happen overnight; rebuilding happens over months and years,” said Maj. Joe Smith, recovery coordinator for Salvation Army. Salvation Army will be opening its long-term recovery center on May 21 to help direct people toward rebuilding their lives. “We are going to help try and fill the funding and resource gap the best we can.”

“We might be able to help where another agency can’t,” said Geotis. “And, if we can’t, we can send them to someone who can.”

Smith and his wife Becky were sent to Big Pine Key from the Tampa headquarters to open the center with the help of local Loretta Geotis. From funding received from Salvation Army’s donors, this is one of the first long-term recovery efforts launched in the history of the nonprofit organization. “We have always been response-based to supply immediate basic needs for people and families,” said Smith. “We are fortunate to be in a position to help others now with relief funding and rebuilding materials.”

Thirty families have already been vetted through Monroe County’s Long Term Recovery Group and have been referred to the agency. As part of the Coordinated Assistance Network database, Salvation Army is verifying the need through the database. “This is an awesome project that we can help others with,” said Geotis, citing monetary help for things ranging from child care to rent and mortgage payments. “There isn’t much limitation to what we can do.” The office, located at 30300 Overseas Hwy. on Big Pine Key, is home to shared office space for social workers, available for various agencies working for the same greater good of helping Keys residents in the post-Irma world, and a warehouse for goods (like toothpaste…) that have been donated to the community. Appointments for help can be made by calling 813892-1710. Eight months after the hurricane, the organization also plans to offer guidance for those suffering from depression and has signed a lease to be in the community through December 2019 for the long-term recovery efforts. The Salvation Army Thrift Shop is open on Big Pine Key in its original location at 30944 Overseas Highway from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

KEY WEST HISTORY

hen State Road 4A, more commonly known as the Overseas Highway, opened to public use on January 25, 1928, it became possible to climb into a car in Miami and drive all the way to Key West — more or less. The road was incomplete. To make the entire trip to Key West, it was necessary to include a ride aboard an automobile ferry. The ferry system bridged the 41-mile gap in the highway between Lower Matecumbe and No Name keys. At No Name Key, vehicles would disembark and complete the drive to Key West. To do the job, three automobile ferries had been

purchased from Gibb’s Shipyard in Jacksonville for a total cost of $850,000. Each was capable of transporting up to 20 cars at a time. The ferry departed Lower Matecumbe daily at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. The trip took about four hours, provided the weather and tides cooperated. Vehicles less than 14 feet long were charged $3.50, while those longer than 16 feet cost $6.50. Ticket prices included the driver, but passengers were assessed an additional fee of $1 each. The ferry pictured here is the “Key West.” Brad Bertelli is curator of the Keys History & Discovery Center. Photo: Jerry Wilkinson Collection

TWO SIDES TO 1,300-UNIT COIN County stalls on whether to accept units

KATIE ATKINS

katie@keysweekly.com

There’s potentially a boatload of affordable housing units coming from the state to Monroe County, discussed at a meeting of the Board of County Commissioners May 10 and again at the May 16 meeting in Key West. But not everyone is on board, and it was said several times that the devil’s in the details, which have yet to be released. No official stance was taken by commissioners. Assistant County Administrator Christine Hurley traveled to Tallahassee on May 15 to meet with Department of Economic Opportunity staff about 1,300 new building permits for workforce housing throughout the Florida Keys. County Attorney Bob Shillinger told commissioners Hurley was unable to make the May 16 meeting but spoke on her behalf. “It’s up to us if we want to participate and what parameters would be placed on the units. They look forward to working with us to understand how we can fine-tune it to our specific needs,” he said. “It sounds to me like none of our questions were answered,” said Commissioner Heather Carruthers. The commissioners went back and forth for more than an hour about whether to accept the units, with the tone being mostly geared toward all the reasons the county should not accept them. Those in favor of the units cite them as a possible solution to the Keyswide dire housing situation. Those who oppose the move say it will be impossible to evacuate so many residents in a reasonable time should another hurricane head for the Keys.

The need for timely evacuation of residents from Monroe County is part of the reason development is restricted in the first place. “The real issue is quality of life and how many people can this fragile chain of islands hold?” said Carruthers. “We all know if we build on every lot in this county, I doubt there is a person in this room who would want to live here. We are facing some rather large issues,” said county Mayor David Rice at last week’s meeting. “Is this helping after the hurricane or setting a precedent for providing an unlimited number of permits by the state instead of coming up with their share of this huge cost we will have as a result of the ROGO?” He was talking about what will happen when there is no more development allowed in the Keys after 2023, and who will pick up the tab for potential “taking” lawsuits as a result of the state-mandated ROGO, the rate of growth ordinance. “Bob, have you and Christine been lying to us about this liability we’re facing in 2023?” asked Commissioner George Neugent. “No,” Schillinger said. “I think if you go back and look at all the tapes you’ll find plenty of instances when I tell you not every person who has a vacant parcel will have a valid takings claim. We may have to defend suits and believe we’ll be victorious in many of them.” Carruthers asked whether the county has to accept the 1,300 units. “They’ve asked us to express the position,” Schillinger said. “If there is any way we can take these we should take them,” Neugent said. The commission agreed last week it will be a long time, possibly years, before the 1,300 units are available to municipalities, seeing as how each will have to amend its comprehensive plan to allow for them.

The county has 555 unallocated affordable housing units and 1,000 market-rate units it can distribute. The various municipalities such as Village of Islamorada and City of Marathon also have some, but not as many. It’s a challenge to know exactly how many affordable units are needed — developers request the building rights but some are returned to the county if the deal falls through. DEO also will submit its 2017 Florida Keys Area of Critical Concern Annual Report to the Cabinet at its June 13 meeting. “We can stand in support, stand in opposition or stand silent and let the municipalities take their own course,” Shillinger said.

This is one of four structural insulated panel homes (SIPs) going up on Big Pine Key by the Florida Keys Community Land Trust as part of the solution to the affordable housing shortage. CONTRIBUTED

KEY WEST WEEKLY / MAY 17, 2018 LETTER TO THE EDITOR

ART FOR THE PARK

Park improvements costing less than expected

C

ommenting as a private citizen and not as a member of the Truman Waterfront Advisory Board, I would like to take this opportunity to correct a misconception about one of my concepts of an overall sea theme for art at the Truman Waterfront Park. I have proposed having three bronze sculptures, one of which would be King Neptune, the King of the Sea, but somehow or another, King Neptune was changed by others to become King Triton. I have no idea where that thought came from except Triton was King Neptune’s son in mythology that goes back some 2,500 years. That might sound humorous on the surface, but there is a big difference here, as statues of King Neptune are serious in nature and have been placed in some of the greatest cities in the world for decades ... maybe centuries. Two other sculptures to complement King Neptune are included in my concept: one, a mermaid placed near the edge of the park’s playground, with another mermaid holding a conch shell (for some Key West heritage) on the amphitheater grounds. But don’t worry, folks, this is only my concept for “Art in the Park” and there will be plenty of time in the upcoming months for any and all viable suggestions from artists and the general public. I’m putting myself out there and setting the bar high, so let’s see what you have in mind. This sculpture theme was chosen in part because it is neutral and does not make any kind of possible controversial social statement, but instead will simply stretch the imagination, uplift the spirit, inspire and be fun. I believe that part of our goal should be to reach for the

spectacular and not just settle for the mediocre, and we can accomplish that by bringing to our park world-class, museum-quality works of art in the form of sculptures that can stand up to any city’s art in the world. The other part of the goal is to make a potential donor or donors aware that there is a golden opportunity waiting for them to have their memory live on in Key West for a lifetime of recognition and personal satisfaction with a generous gift of one or more of these beautiful, interesting and classy sculptures to our already great park. To be informative and further clear the air of another misconception that might be traveling around the city, the price tag for the park was at one time expected to be in the neighborhood of $58 million. That might be true, but since the dormant Truman Waterfront Advisory Board was put back into service two and a half years ago, that number is now down to $23 million. All City of Key West staff, including the city manager, engineering, planning, and everyone else who worked on this project are to be greatly commended for their very hard work. At this time and to my knowledge, the last scheduled work is the downsized redesign of “Building 1287” (formerly known as the PAL building), and this will come in at around $4 million in 2019. This “park support building” project will also include an adjacent playing field; a storage area for park maintenance equipment, etc.; public restrooms; concession stand; office space for Key West Police Mounted Patrol and volunteers (which also might be thought of as a type of sub-station, we’ll see); and horse stables and corrals beginning at the rear of the building. Whether or not to replace Building 103 in two to three years with a convention center type of building remains to be seen. An added benefit of bringing the total cost down from $58 million to $27 million is probably somewhere between 40,000 to 50,000 square feet of additional green space. Ben Valopian, Key West

We should probably each have a Red Sox ball from Yankee Stadium sitting on our desks. CONTRIBUTED

Licensed & Insured SP#3136

L

ast Wednesday, I randomly ended up in New York City with a Red Sox baseball from Yankee Stadium. While attending a conference in KRISTEN Rhode Island and LIVENGOOD sipping on an 8 a.m. workshop Bloody is a Marathon Mary (we are from High School and USF grad, mom of the Keys, after all), two beautiful little a group text came girls, and wife to through: “Wanna go some cute guy to the Yankee/Red she met in a bar. Sox game tonight?” She enjoys being “I’m in.” I mean, a social busy bee, it would mean a red wine, running (very, very slowly), three-hour drive and spearfishing. … but Red Sox in Yankee Stadium ... sold. “I’ll do the navigating.” I looked forward to eating a stadium hot dog, drinking a cold Bud Light, and popping some Cracker Jacks, while singing “America the Beautiful” in whatever seats were probably available last minute. Well, it wasn’t nosebleed seats as Claude Gardner, Jon Crane and I explored our “Legends Suite” amenities; no, it included concierge service with the works. Lobster, steak, stone crab(!), sushi, all the Cracker Jacks I could ever imagine, and hot dogs. I spent an exorbitant amount of time trying to figure out the source for their tiny, illegal-sized stone crab claws. Um, apparently snow crab have claws, too, and they don’t have size limits.

With seats located just behind the entrance to the Sox dugout, our game plan was simple: “Kristen, if a ball comes our way, we will catch it,” said Crane, checking to make sure there were no children around. “Then, we will hand it to you.” Opportunity one: Coach Tommy sees our frantically waving Sox baseball caps and makes eye contact with us in the “I’m-going-to-throw-you-this-ball” kinda way. In slow motion the ball comes right for me and in a movieesque moment I assume I will catch the ball in my hat. WORST IDEA EVER. It bounces out, and the dude sitting next to us, a Yankee fan trying to impress his “clients,” catches it on the rebound and refuses to make eye contact with me. Opportunity two: foul ball right next to us. Crane can’t get there quick enough but may or may not have had his fingers on the gem. Opportunity three: the Keys way, smile and ask. It can’t hurt. I walk up to the dugout, “Hey, Coach!!! Give me one more chance, I won’t blow it this time.” He walks into the dugout shaking his head and I start to turn in disappointment, then notice Coach Tommy mouthing, “Don’t screw this up.” I clasp my hands around the ball like my life depended on it. Crane’s hands clasp around mine making sure I really don’t actually screw it up, and everyone around us cheers. It is the most amazing moment. By the drive home, my navigation skills were questionable, but we saw beaver road kill and a herd of gigantic northern deer. It doesn’t get much better than that.

‘RUN, HIDE, FIGHT’ (PART 1 OF 2) SARA MATTHIS

K

ey Largo School Principal Laura Lietaert said every year she brings the new teachers together to go over the “intruder” drill before they meet with the kids. “It’s difficult. There are tears,” Lietaert said, explaining the new teachers are often sickened by the idea of someone deliberately hurting children. “I tell them they can do what they have to do, for as long as they have to. Then we dry our tears and go out to talk to the children.” Lietaert’s observations illustrate the difficulty of discussing school security as it regards an active shooter situation. It’s an emotional subject for everybody — administrators, teachers, law enforcement, parents and kids. Bringing everyone together for a cohesive plan to respond to the danger, while taking into account everyone’s responsibility and understanding of the situation, is a monumental undertaking. The impetus is the school shooting that claimed 17 lives at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida and the resulting legislation of the same name that covers everything from school resource officers to mental health to gun purchase laws. Most of it is taking place behind closed doors, for reasons of security. “If we announce what we are doing, there’s not a lot of safety and security in that,” said school board member Mindy Conn. “Some of our measures will be obvious and other things we are currently doing you may not notice if you are walking around school.” School and law enforcement officials are, however, open to discussing broad objectives that must be accomplished over the summer.

School district begins comprehensive review of safety

Step one is to conduct detailed investigations of every district school before the end of the school year, and then charter schools. In the Keys, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office will take the lead. Patty Thompson is the director of school safety at MCSO. It’s a new position, established in the last few months. Thompson is a former FBI agent and then security consultant with experience in exactly this field. She recently completed the security assessment at Florida Keys Community College. Sugarloaf School was the first to undergo an examination in April. “The public tends to think that the process just involves getting a cap gun and firing off a couple rounds. That’s the last step in a lengthy process,” Thompson said. It starts, she said, with interviewing everyone from the leadership team to the students. Then law enforcement develops measurable training. “The next step is tabletop exercises, where we work through it notionally, and it ends with a full-field training exercise,” she said. Thompson will make her recommendations, but the final decisions about what to implement — such as an active shooter drill that calls for students to participate — will be up to the school district. The school district and sheriff’s office won’t be working alone. Thompson said she plans to include the Key West Police Department, Florida Highway Patrol, FBI, Department of Juvenile Justice, State Attorney’s Office, Emergency Management and even Fish and Wildlife Commission officers. “Everyone is chipping in. Agencies have different agendas, but if there’s one thing we can all agree on, it is this,” she said. According to the district, the assessments are nothing new. However, they have been expanded in the wake of the Parkland shooting in February.

Thompson and Pat Lefere, the school district’s executive director of operations and planning, said the training for students and administrators will follow the “run, hide, fight” protocol. “The response tactics in active shooter situations continue to evolve and there’s not one answer. Lockdown is not always the answer. ‘Run, hide, fight’ gives three options,” Thompson said. “We can teach the criteria to make the best choice in each circumstance.” Lefere said about half of district students received the training this year. He said district leaders are engaging school officials and having interactive discussions; they are doing the tabletop exercises. “But what the staff and teachers take away from the discussion is different for every particular location,” he said. “It’s all scenario dependent.” In the 2017-18 school year, Key Largo School conducted an intruder drill that included a movement exercise for the students. (That school has been practicing intruder drills for eight years.) At Marathon High School, the freshman watched a video and discussed it afterward. The district is developing tiered training. “The high school plan is a lot different from the kindergarten plan,” said Lefere. Next week: Pick up a copy of the Keys Weekly to read about school security upgrades and other details.

T

he Monroe County Education Foundation will recognize the accomplishments and celebrate the graduation of its 58 Take Stock in Children senior scholars on Saturday, May 19, at 11:30 a.m. in the Marathon High School Auditorium. With a collective weighted grade point average of 3.69 and one third of the class eligible for Florida Bright Futures, these Take Stock in Children scholars are poised to begin their college journey. Having received more than 130 college acceptances, two-thirds of the TSIC Class of 2018 will attend a Florida university. The remaining students will enter college, with one enlisting in the Coast Guard. This year the Monroe County Education Foundation will welcome fourtime Paralympian and six-time World Champion Josh George as the keynote speaker. Josh’s life changed significantly when he was 4 years old after falling from a 12-story window. During his adolescence, Josh explored adapted athletics, participating in multiple sports. He discovered wheelchair racing was his calling. Today, in addition to competing around the world, Josh motivates others to maximize their potential and to keep moving fast. “We’re looking forward to celebrating the accomplishments of

these dedicated and hard-working Take Stock in Children scholars,” said Monroe County School Superintendent Mark Porter. Although the mission of Take Stock in Children is to provide students with the financial resources to attend college, the Monroe County Education Foundation board continues to focus on providing students with the tools and skills necessary to complete a degree, diploma, or certificate. Program Coordinator Chuck Licis highlighted the importance of Take Stock’s college and career readiness efforts. “This year’s class is ready to take the next step, to pursue their college goals and career dreams!” The Monroe County Education Foundation, established in 1996, is a Florida not-for-profit organization dedicated to enhancing and improving the educational experiences of students within Monroe County. In addition to the MCEF flagship program, Take Stock in Children, the foundation provides leadership development opportunities and international travel experiences for qualified Monroe County students. More than 650 students from Monroe County have received scholarships since the program was founded. More information is at www.monroecountyedfound.org. —Contributed

Make responsible boating decisions a daily habit, and think about taking an upcoming boater safety course with one of the Florida Keys’ five U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary units.

DO

DON’T

1. Have enough life jackets (that fit properly and are easy to access) on board for everyone.

1. Don’t overindulge in alcohol — this is a huge factor in injuries and deaths.

2. Let someone know when you’ll return and give an idea about where you’re going.

2. Don’t assume (it makes an ass out of u and me) the weather, depth, crew knowledge and skill level, what other boaters know or where they are headed.

3. Know the area you will be in — have GPS, charts, compass — and know what channel markers are.

4. Don’t touch coral, conch shells or dangerous wildlife.

5. Make sure you have the proper anchors and rope for the depth and bottom.

5. Don’t go anywhere near propellers — they’re sharp.

7. Use dive flags — up on the highest part of the vessel when in the water/down when underway. 8. Make sure proper safety equipment is aboard, including a first-aid kit. 9. Have water, food, and clothing — a hat, polarized glasses, water shoes, sun protection, dry bags for cellphones and a ditch bag with immediate needs ready. 10. Do make sure everyone aboard knows where all emergency equipment is and how to use it.

6. Don’t run out of fuel: general rule is 1/3 out, 1/3 to cruise around and 1/3 to get home. 7. Don’t be without proper gear and safety equipment. 8. Don’t wear jewelry — some fish think sparkly things are food. 9. Don’t abdicate your responsibility to your passengers, your vessel, other vessels.

What class has best prepared you for life after high school? DE Sociology and AP Biology, which has just as much to do with the teachers as the class. Mr. Kramer and Mrs. Hornbeck have inspired me. What advice would you give to underclassmen? Never be scared to try something new. Don’t let anything stop you from going after what you want. What is your favorite social medium and whom do you follow? I’m not big on social media, but I do like Snapchat. I follow my friends and family.

What do you want to be remembered for at Key West High School? For being a hardworking dedicated student who also knows how to have fun and relax. What three things do you want to accomplish before your 10-year high school reunion? I want to get my master’s degree, visit Australia and go on a shark cage dive, and hopefully be a little closer to figuring out who I am and what I want to do with my life. Do you think you will make the Keys your permanent home? Why or why not? I have no idea, I’d love to come back to the Keys, but I have never lived anywhere else so I’d like to keep my options open and hope that I land somewhere as amazing as Key West. Finish this sentence: Living in the Keys has taught me … to appreciate my life and the beautiful little island I grew up on, as well as, hopefully, how to become a pretty cool successful adult.

SENIOR

Who has been your biggest inspiration at Key West High School and why? I have a friends group, known as the “smart kids,” who constantly inspire and impress me.

KALLI MCLILLI

What organizations and activities are you involved with at Key West High School and why are they important to you? I’m involved with band, lacrosse, choir, MHS, Beta, Zonta, and Mu Alpha Theta. Lacrosse has made me fall in love with a sport I knew nothing about four years ago and band has kept me close to my best friends. The clubs taught me responsibility and how to give back to our community.


COOL STUFF

KEY WEST WEEKLY / MAY 17, 2018

Mainstreaming

A look at what they're doing on the mainland

OH, OH, IT’S MAGIC THERMAL IMMERSION CIRCULATOR

starting $100 For simplicity’s sake, we are going to call this a magic wand. You fill a pot with water, put the food in a bag or a glass jar, and set the magic wand to the desired temperature. That’s. It. Then you walk away and your phone lets you know when it’s done. Apparently this doesn’t even involve the use of a STOVE. Huh. There are several different brands on the market including Wancle and Sous Vide and re-usable silicon bags are also for sale.

We are pleased to be the leading environmental services provider for Monroe County. We have rolloff dumpsters and portable toilets to assist with rebuilding and repair for those affected by the storm.

Great jobs with great pay do exist in the Keys. ROCKETBOOK WAVE SMART NOTEBOOK

INSTAPOT

$100 Apparently, if you don’t have one of these things, you are a loser. Plus, you’re still using your avocado and brown corduroy-toned slow cooker from the ’70s. ‘Cause this kitchen appliance is a seven-in-one multifunctional cooker. It pressure cooks, it slow cooks, it makes rice, and you can even make YOGURT in it. Plus, you can program this sucker 24 hours in advance. Available on amazon.com.

$27 This 80-page notebook looks like a regular spiral thing you’d tote to high school, but it actually contains magic. You can ERASE this notebook by putting it in the microwave and use it again. Want those notes back? Stick it in the freezer and the words will magically reappear. Also, you can upload your notes to email or Google Docs or Dropbox as an editable PDF (we think with the use of a smartphone app). Con: it requires the use of a certain type of pen or marker — Pilot FriXion (they cost about $8 to $13 a set). Pro: your kids will love it too to send “secret” messages to one another. Available on amazon.com

We are growing and looking for talented people to join our team. Email your resume to britt@keysweekly.com.

MILAGRO MEANS ‘MIRACLE’ New Big Pine Key restaurant getting rave reviews

KRISTEN LIVENGOOD kristen@keysweekly.com

ilagro, a new restaurant that opened after the dust of Hurricane Irma settled, is getting rave reviews on social media from locals who have tried the Spanish-inspired menu. New regulars at the Big Pine Key restaurant, Lisa and Kevin, said they tread lightly when something new opens in the area. “We have come in several times now, and we haven’t wavered from the burrito and Carnivale with added mushrooms,” said Kevin. While eating the coffee crème brulee dessert, they said they’ll be more adventurous when they return. The most popular item: the grilled octopus appetizer served over an applewood bacon polenta. Owner and chef Kevin Montoya said the octopus became a theme when they were decorating the space. “My mom is a

3 finicky eater and she even loved it,” he said. Montoya and his wife Maggie are no strangers to good service, coming from a Casa Marina and Beachside Marriott background. The two are passionate about bringing something good to the community. “We are doing this from our heart,” said Maggie. “We want everyone who comes in here to feel special and leave with a good impression.” The name Milagro means “miracle,” and that’s what it took to get the restaurant opened after the hurricane. “We had to start completely from scratch,” she said. “We knew this would be the name because we knew if we pulled it off it would be nothing short of a miracle.” Milagro is located at 31044 Overseas Hwy.

4 KRISTEN LIVENGOOD/Keys Weekly 1. The grilled octopus has been the most ordered item on the menu. 2. Milagro owners Maggie and Kevin Montoya live in the Lower Keys and have two sons who are 9 and 12 years old. Their dinner menu is eclectic with a Spanish-feel. 3. The tortilla soup, made with all natural chicken in a chili lime broth with crisp corn tortillas, and the flatbread pizza, with a French gruyere cheese and caramelized onions and shiitake mushrooms, are both favorites. 4. Bartender Renee Scarpelli serves a cucumber chili margarita; the restaurant offers a full bar.
