VMS suit back to court


VMS/From 1

strong case," said Glen Brooks,
president of the Clearwater-
based Gulf Fishermen's
Association.
In its filing, the group
charged that the "great
expense" of the VMS require-
ment "will likely cause many
vessel owners to go out of busi-
ness."
The 20-page suit also con-
tends the rule violates fisher-
men's privacy by subjecting the
boats to constant location mon-
itoring, and was adopted with-
out considering economic ram-
ifications as required by law.
"The VMS rule does not
enhance enforcement within
[marine] closed areas as it pur-
ports to," according to the suit.
The Gulf of Mexico Fishery
Management Council decided
in 2005 to require a VMS for
the 1,070 boats that hold com-
mercial reef-fish permits within
its jurisdiction.
Primarily, the VMS is
intended to let federal law-
enforcement staff monitor the
location of commercial boats
so they can see when a boat
approaches an area closed to


fishing.
Many of the closed areas
intended to protect spawning
stocks lie far from shore, mak-
ing it difficult and costly for
government law-enforcement
boats to patrol regularly.
Fishermen dislike the VMS,
which they often compare to
ankle-monitoring devices
attached to criminal defendants
or probationers.
They also object to the pur-
chase cost of more than $3,000
for government-approved sys-
tems, coupled with installation
costs estimated at $650, or
required signal-carrier charges
of $40 to $55 a month.
A federal program offers
reimbursement for the purchase
cost of the electronics but not
for installation and monthly
charges.
Some Keys. fishermen
affected by the requirement
have installed a VMS, which
relays the boat location to a
satellite.
Others have not, said Scott
Zimmerman, executive director
of the Florida Keys
Commercial Fishermen's
Association.
"There is a lack of interest in
the Keys in how that program is


moving forward," Zimmerman
said. "As to whether they'll
comply by March 7, we'll have
to see."
An original deadline of Dec.
7 was extended to March 7
because fishermen said they
could not have the units pur-
chased and installed by
approved technicians by then.
"The representatives [of
VMS manufacturers] said there
were plenty of units available
and there would be no problem
getting one by March 7,"
Brooks said. "I know one [fish-
ing] company that ordered
about 18 of them on Jan. 18,
and they haven't got them yet."
If the lawsuit does not suc-
ceed, Brooks said, the VMS
requirement "will be the law.
Our people will comply with it,
whether they want to or not."
The federal South Atlantic
Fishery Management Council
rejected the proposed use of a
VMS for reef-fish commercial
boats in its jurisdiction. That
would have affected more Keys
fishermen than the Gulf rule.
However, fishermen say
they are concerned the govern-
ment eventually could call for
wider use of the devices.

School Board to
see results at
Tuesday's.meeting-
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

The majority of Monroe
County School District employ-
ees surveyed recently would
rather rent a three-bedroom
apartment than own a two-bed-
room house, if either option were
offered through the district.
The survey's results are
scheduled to be discussed at the
School Board's Tuesday special
meeting at Stanley Switlik
Elementary School in Marathon,
beginning at 10 a.m.
District-provided affordable
housing has been a much-talked
about issue of late, most recently
at the School Board's Feb. 13
meeting, where the board decided
the district's property at Trumbo
Point in Key West could be sold
only if it were to be converted
into affordable housing available
to district staff first.
This most recent survey was
given to the district's 1,300
employees, of which 617'
responded, Superintendent
Randy Acevedo said. Of those
respondents, 62 percent were
teachers, and the rest were either
administrators or school and dis-
trict support staff. The district
employs more than 600 teachers.
Fifty-seven percent of those
surveyed own their homes, 23
percent rent apartments and 19
percent rent houses. Most of the
renters surveyed said they pay
more than $1,600 per month,

including utilities, while 18 per-
cent said they pay less than
$1,000 a month. The rest pay
between $1,000 and $1,500 per
month, according to the survey.
Travel time to work is impor-
tant to district employees, the
survey revealed.
Of the 617 respondents, 56
percent live less than 5 miles
away from where they work. This
said, 44 percent of the respon-
dents said they would not be will-
ing to travel more than 20 miles
to get back and forth to work.
Twenty percent said they
would be willing to travel
between 40 and 60 miles, 17 per-
cent said they would travel
between 20 and 40 miles, while
another 17 percent said they
would be willing to travel only
less than 5 miles.
A noticeable 72 percent of
those who responded said the
availability of better transport,
such as ride sharing, would not
affect their decisions about work-
ing or staying in the Keys.
Comments anonymously
included in the survey results
released by the district include

However, the insurance rates are
going insane now. I received a

GPS

units

stolen

Cops are now


investigating 16
cases countywide
Seven more expensive GPS
units have been stolen from boats
in the Lower Keys the past week,
and Monroe County Sheriff's
Office detectives are now work-
ing countywide on a total of 16
of such cases.
Deputy Becky Herrin said
that between Tuesday and
Wednesday, employees of
Murray Marine on Stock Island
reported three global positioning
units stolen from boats at their
boatyard and four more were
reported stolen from the Garrison
Bight Marina.
At the time of these thefts,
detectives in the Upper Keys
were already investigating nine
GPS thefts in that area, with six
occurring at the Mangrove
Marina in Taverrier.
Total value of the stolen items
is approximately $50,000.
Now Sheriff's Office detec-
tives countywide and from the
Key West Police Department are
putting their heads together to
solve the crimes.
To stem further thefts, author-
ities say GPS owners should take
steps to secure the units. They
should also make sure they have
the serial numbers in case they
are stolen.
If the equipment can be
removed, then do so after you are
finished boating. If the GPS can-
not be easily removed and is a
built-in unit, try installing a lock
bar across the face or altering the
screws that hold the unit to make
them more difficult to remove.
Another tactic is to make sure
the GPS is not readily visible to
someone passing by the boat. If
your boat is docked behind your
house, install security lighting.
Boat alarms of various sorts are
also available.
Anyone with information
about the GPS thefts should call
the Sheriff's Office or Crime
Stoppers of the Florida Keys.
Callers to Crime Stoppers can
remain anonymous and are eligi-
ble for a $500 reward if their
information leads to an arrest.
The fioilihe is (800) 346-TIPS. '

Insurance implosion

just keeps going

Every once in awhile, professional journalists get to sit
back and see what the readers have to say.
For some, it can be a humbling experience, especially
when an alert reader will point out something missed by the
pros. Oftentimes, it can be illuminating, especially when
newspapers invite direct reader participation.
A case in point comes from reading letters to the editor
and reader blogs about Florida's insurance crisis.
How about this idea from a Pembroke Park reader on the
dilemma faced by trailer owners:
"We are floating the idea that because mobile homes are
under the jurisdiction of the Florida Department of Vehicles,
mobile homes should be able to get insurance coverage with
the same companies that insure other vehicles.".
Another suggested more drastic action: "Because of the
disappointing performance of the insurance industry, the
time has come to give some competition to the private sec-
tor, with the counties and cities creating a "'self insurance
program.'"
Now, that kind of risk gives most of us the chills, espe-
cially knowing that Florida property owners have already
taken on more risk with the latest changes to Citizens
Property Insurance Corp.
Legislative action taken in January essentially defers the
question of who picks up the tab in the event of a cata-
strophic hurricane event.
And the news this week that Allstate Floridian and other
insurance companies are fighting Florida's emergency order
freezing all policies in place until May 1 carries ominous
overtones.
Floridian, which had already started canceling 120,000
policies as they came up for renewal after November, had
announced another 106,000 nonrenewals in early January.
The emergency order could force them to carry those poli-
cies through this year's hurricane season. And that kind of
exposure has them nervous and ready to fight.
Add another bit of news on the windstorm insurance front
this week: State Farm announced it has stopped writing
homeowners insurance in Mississippi after legal battles
there over Hurricane Katrina claims.
On Friday, Mississippi's attorney general asked Gov.
Haley Barbour and the 'state insurance commissioner to
consider an emergency order requiring insurance compa-
nies to continue to do business until the state legislature can
act.
Sounds like a replay of the Florida experience.
And whether you listen to outraged readers or experienced
journalists covering this insurance meltdown, it's clear the
battle will heat up more in coming months.
At this point, we're praying for a repeat of last year's calm
hurricane season. And some calm heads to find solutions
that don't devolve into bully tactics by either side in this
very complex insurance morass.

Two-night minimum isn't
EDITOR:
A series of e-mails have gone out regarding
some Key Largo hoteliers' two-night minimum
for the weekend of the MS 150, a National
Multiple Sclerosis Society bike-riding fundraiser
set for April 21 and 22.
The Key Largo Chamber of Commerce under-
stands both sides of the issue.
Bike riders begin their trek to Key Largo from
Miami at 7 a.m. Saturday, April 21. To pay for a
room Friday night that they will not use makes peo-
ple angry. Plus, these riders have to come up.with
minimum donations.in order to qualify for the ride.
On the other hand, we also understand the
business concerns that drive hoteliers' decisions.
To sell a room for one night, in some cases, can
mean a loss of thousands of dollars in revenue
because booking that room for three or four
nights or longer is out of the question.
The Friday-night requirement is the only way
hoteliers can recoup a portion of that loss.
This not an issue of greedy hoteliers; it is a
case of trying to earn enough revenue during the
busiest time of the year to keep the business
going year-round. Business expenses, including


meant to gouge
taxes and insurance, continue to rise, and hun-
dreds of people rely on these hotels to support
themselves and their families.
The MS 150 has used Key Largo as its south-
ern terminus for more than 20 years, and we
appreciate the extra business that 2,000 riders,
volunteers, supporters and family members bring
to our island.
We also understand that the issue of single-
night stays for the MS 150 has been a sore point
for almost as long.
The chamber welcomes the opportunity to
work with hoteliers and event organizers to come
up with a solution to this ongoing problem.
Perhaps the time of year could be changed to fit
into our off-season, which would bring welcome
revenue to all segments of our community.
Another possibility is changing the event to two
days, and massaging the route to accommodate.
the hoteliers' two-night minimum requirement.
There are many possibilities; it's simply a
matter of working together for solutions that will
be agreeable to all.
Jackie Harder, president
Key Largo Chamber of Commerce


Fishing captain was a true mentor


EDITOR:
I lived in Islamorada for nearly 20 years. I
made a profession out of fishing at Bud 'n
Mary's starting in the early 1970s. Some might
call it the olden days, when one started in a pro-
fession and spent years proving one's self before
gaining the respect from his peers. That was the
case for me.
Bud 'n Mary's was home to the finest fisher-
men and guides. These people were the pioneers
in light-tackle sportfishing. At that time they
included Cecil Keith, Jimmie Albright, Bobby
Reineman, Hank Brown, Joe Stephens, George
Hommel, Jack Brothers and others (all of whom
did not fish exclusively out of Bud 'n Mary's,
but you get my point).
Although I primarily fished "outside" and
worked for Don Gurgiolo and Alex Adler (when
he first started in the business) along with proba-
bly every other charter boat of any worth in
Islamorada, I remember the apprenticeship I
underwent.
We were a part of something very special to
sportfishing. We were the second generation
directly behind those people who set the stage
for what is today. We toiled away learning our
profession. I was paid $25 a day in those days
(and happy to make it).
The late Cecil Keith was a great mentor to


PACE appreciates funds
EDITOR:
On behalf of the PACE Center for Girls and
the girls we serve, I want to take this opportunity
to thank the anonymous donors who designated
the PACE Center for Girls in Key West as the
recipient of the funds for the clothes to be resold
at Consigning Adults, an upscale resale shop on
Whitehead Street.
The generous donations contributed more
than $200 to our center, with all the funds going
directly to support our girls. Thank you.

me. It did not make a difference that I was not to
become a backcountry guide. We were all part of
a larger family.
I will never forget the time I was rigging dif-
ferent sorts of tackle for offshore fishing. I had
been in the business for a few years and Cecil
jumped on the Kalex and showed me three or
four different ways to tie a particular knot that I
needed to know depending upon the particular
task at hand. That was just his way.
In those days, these old-timers did not just
give out information. You needed to gain their
respect first, but once that was established, they
opened up. It was an eye opener.
Many years Later, Cecil invited me to his
home behind the Green Turtle Inn to watch and
get explicit instruction in his methods of tying
tarpon flies and tippets. To be so lucky to be a
part of this lineage was mind-blowing.
I have since moved on in my life to achieve in
different ways and in a different profession. I
have, however, taken the passion of what I
learned from Cecil Keith. He was a great man.

Roses and thorns for County Commission


EDITOR:
The overall performance of our
County Commission coupled with the
results of the Feb. 8 workshop meeting to
determine the fate of County
Administrator Tom Willi deserves a
round of thanks.
Thank you to commissioners George
Neugent and Sylvia Murphy for continu-
ing to represent the interests of Monroe
County taxpayers. We have placed our
trust in their capable hands and they have
not violated that trust. They have repre-
sented our interests wisely and with
vision, common sense, integrity and pro-
fessionalism.
Thank you Commissioner Dixie
Spehar for continuing to vote to raise our
taxes and providing the swing vote to
retain the incompetent Willi. Thank you
for voting on a 2007 budget that she obvi-
ously didn't know anything about. Thank
you for voting for a budget that had a
seven-figure structured, built-in deficit
and a tax increase while at the same time
squandering millions of taxpayer dollars
by getting Monroe County in the real
estate and ship-sinking businesses.
And if that wasn't enough waste,


thank you for approving spending hun-
dreds of thousands of the taxpayers' hard-
earned dollars to line the pockets of Tom
Willi's buddies in a boondoggle called
the Sterling Process. But the greatest
thanks go for her inspiration to the unin-
formed and dimwitted that they, too, can
have a political career.
Thanks to Commissioner Sonny
McCoy for being the male clone of Dixie
and voting in lock step with her. His
knowledge of Florida's Sunshine law
ranks right up there with Mayor Mario Di
Gennaro.
Last but not least, thanks go out to
Mayor Di Gennaro for enlightening the
public with respect to Florida's Sunshine
Law. His meteoritic rise from political
unknown to powerful county mayor is
unprecedented in the annals of Monroe
County history. However, his greatest
achievement goes far beyond education
and political savviness, for he has accom-
plished in a very short tenure what politi-
cal pundits considered utterly impossible:
Making us miss and long for ex-
Commissioner David Rice.

Super Bowl coaches are just super coaches


EDITOR:
Congratulations to Lovie Smith and
Tony Dungy on being the first African-
American coaches to reach the Super
Bowl with their respective teams.
The public has become even more
acutely aware of this since every mem-
ber of the media hammered it home hour
by hour, day by day ever since the play-
offs began. There's nothing like bringing
racial divisiveness to the forefront dur-
ing the football season over and over
again.
'Maybe it's just me, but I see Lovie
and Tony as two great football coaches,
two great human beings, who have
attained remarkable accomplishments,
irrespective of their color. They both
have my total respect and admiration,
and that of many other Americans I'm
sure.
I don't look at them as the first
African-Americans to bring a team to the
Super Bowl, much the same as I don't


look at whoever was the first German-
American, the first Italian-American, the
first Asian-American, the first Polish-
American, the first Spanish-American,
Irish-American, etc., to be the first to do
anything, whether it be discovering the
theory of relativity, a vaccine for polio,
becoming a United States senator, secre-
tary of state, or walking on the moon.
I look at them as fellow Americans
who have reached incredible heights
regardless of their heritage.
Instead of using this football season
as a reminder of racial divisiveness,
which unfortunately still exists, why
don't we just let great accomplishments
like these speak for themselves. They
will speak volumes, without any help at
all from the media.
Oh, by the way, I am the very first
Irish-German-American Indian-
American to write a letter like this.

Concerts enthralled students


EDITOR:
The Middle Keys Concert
Association recently sponsored three
outreach programs at our local schools
featuring guest pianist Frederick
Moyer.
The high-school music students'
program was rained out Feb. 12 a
weather lock-down. Students were to
be bused to San Pablo Catholic Church
so the pianist could play on the associ-
ation's acoustic piano.
Two programs were held the morn-
ing of Feb. 13 at Stanley Switlik
Elementary School for all the grades,
kindergarten to six. Everyone stu-
dents and teachers were very hpS-
pitable and appreciative.


I wish to thank Principal Barbara
Wright and music teacher Suzanne
Terpos for arranging the schedule.
Thanks to middle school/high school
band director Rob Raymond and
Assistant Principal Brett Unke for
their assistance that morning. Thanks
to Linda and Bob Byars of the Byars
Music store in Marathon for loaning
her digital piano.
Thanks also to the teachers who
escorted the students and the students
who responded so eagerly to Mr.
Moyer's commentary and music. A
wonderful learning and musical expe-
rience was enjoyed.

North's deep freeze


warms the Florida Keys


Welcome to President's Day
weekend.
No doubt, you've noticed a lot
more cars on our roads, a lot more
parking spots filled at Publix and
Winn-Dixie stores, and longer waits
for tables at popular breakfast spots
up and down the Keys.
This is the time of year when we
expect the snowbirds back in the
warm roost and more visitors from
the frigid north to head south.
Last month, that annual migration
was stalled due to warmer-than-
usual temperatures in some of the
traditional visitor mar-
kets. we count on, includ-
ing New England, New
York and the mid-
Atlantic region, includ-
ing Philadelphia and -
New Jersey.
Even though we sensed
this January was off a bit,
we now have scientific
proof of the theory that
weather drives Keys
tourism more than any
other single factor. Wayne N
The Associated Press
reported Friday that Keynoter
January was the "hottest
on record."
This wasn't just a statistical spike,
you understand; this was a verifi-
able, unprecedented rise in global
temperatures since valid record-
keeping began back in 1880.
The U.S. National Climatic Data
Center is in Asheville, N.C.
Weather scientists there told the
AP that January's warming broke
the old record and was the biggest
jump seen in 10 years. Siberia
recorded January temperatures that
averaged 9 degrees warmer than
normal, the AP reported. Canada, on
average, was warmer by 5 degrees.
For goodness sake, I read about
flowers trying to send out bulbs in
Washington, D.C., when plants
were fooled into thinking it was
springtime.
Mother Nature proved to be quite
a jokester this past week, however,
as frigid artic air and snow blanket-
ed much of the Midwest and
Northeast.
I'm sure you've read or seen
reports of the poor folks trapped in
their vehicles for eight, nine even 20
hours on snow-bound interstates in
Pennsylvania. Or you may have
heard Florida homeboy Joe
Scarborough talk about the exciting
nine-hour ordeal of sitting on a Jet
c ('S -,, ',


Blue plane in New York in the midst
of the snow storm.
Planes were actually freezing to
the tarmac.
The former Panhandle congress-
man opened his evening telecast on
MSNBC Thursday night from
Washington, D.C., and lamented he
still hadn't made it home to Florida
after two days of trying.
Let's hope there aren't a lot more
of those sob stories because this is
the peak time for sun-seekers to
head south.
There was some good news on
that front this week in
Marathon, where hun-
dreds of local boosters,
bigwigs and jist curious
people turned out to
greet the inaugural Delta
Airlines jet from Atlanta.
S One of the families
interviewed as it
S- 1 deplaned to applause, a
steel-drum band and
awaiting dignitaries
hailed from Kentucky.
larkham They were heading to
Publisher Islamorada to get in
some fishing.,
Now, if you scanned
the weather maps this past week,
you may have noticed that
Kentucky was spared most of the
blizzard-like conditions. So it's far
easier for travelers south of the bliz-
zard belt to head to warmer climes
this time of year.
Once the hoopla has died down, it
will be visitors like those who keep
the Keys' economic engine primed.
And getting that Atlanta direct con-
nection could prove to be an impor-
tant key to unlocking some of that
potential.
But it will take passengers not
local boosterism to turn that from
dream to reality.



To see how far we've come, I
highly recommend you read histori-
an Dan Gallagher's article in
today's Keynoter.
If you've always wondered about
how Marathon wound up with an
airstrip in the first place, read
Gallagher's fascinating look back at
the start of World War II and the role
Marathon played in pilot training.
And you'll be amazed when you
learn what the 280 acres of Key
Vaca land cost the state to acquire
way back'then. ' -

Airfield dates

to World War II


By DAN GALLAGHER
Keynoter Contributor

How much do you think you
know about the beginnings of
Florida Keys Marathon Airport?
At the beginning of World
War II, the U.S. military saw a
need for a practice landing strip
for pilots in .training. The Civil
Aeronautics Association, a gov-
ernment agency, determined a
parcel of land then owned by two
Key West men, Norberg
Thompson and Maitland Adams,
would be suitable.
It was a large area in an almost
uninhabited part of the Keys -
the middle of Key Vaca.
The parcel was 280 acres and
sold for $70 per acre a grand
total of $19,600.
The land was low and, accord-
ing to one description, mostly
mangroves. The Civil Aero-
nautics Association engaged
Edward Belcher Jr., owner of
Belcher Oil Co. in Miami, as
prime contractor. The contract
was for about $350,000 and
mostly involved mQving fill to
build up the airstrip to its present
height. That fill came from the
area now known as Dodge Lake.
The airstrip fill process was a
boon for Marathon residents, pro-
viding work at a time when the
fishing industry was at a relative
standstill because of the war.
Construction began in the fall
of 1942 and was completed in the
spring of 1943. Military pilots
from Key West and Homestead
used the airstrip extensively to
practice landings and takeoffs.
At that time, Key Vaca had
many visitors, but no tourists.
The pilots flew in, landed, turned
around and flew out again with-
out ever getting, out, of. their
planes. There were no fueling


stations at the airstrip or ameni-
ties of any kind.
For a time at the beginning of
the war the airstrip property was
partly owned by the Florida State
Road Department (later Public
Roads Administration). After the
war, Monroe County petitioned
the agency to turn it over to the
county for a public airport.
In 1958, this became a reality
- Monroe County was granted
title to the airport property.
National Air Lines leased the air-
port from the county for several
years.
Two Key Vaca entrepreneurs
also had their eye on the airstrip
after the war.
Calvin and Wesley Bartelt,
World War II bomber-pilot veter-
ans, loved to fly, fish and dive.
They bought the land where
Coconut Cay Resort now stands-
on U.S. 1 and built a motel on the
spot. It was named the Sea Land
Air Court.
Their grand plan was to have a
motel and rental boats for sports-
men pilots who would fly in to
the airstrip and step into a boat
and head out to fish. The proper-
ty was adjacent to the airport -
there was no Aviation Boulevard
at this time to separate the motel
from the airstrip. This road was
put in later and the Bartelt
brothers were not happy to see it.
As Phil Sadowski's develop-
ment grew at Key Colony Beach,
the center of activity of the air-
port moved to the east end of the
airstrip, close to the Key Motel
and Key Lounge (now under ren-
ovation and last known as the
Driftwood Lounge).
The Sea Land Air Court's
dream faded away.

Monroe County Mayor Mario Di Gennaro (with scissors) and other Keys representatives
officially open Florida Keys Marathon Airport back up to commercial air service with
Thursday's Delta flight.


First flight nearly flawless


AIRPORT / From 1

touched down and then taxied
through a ceremonial arc of
spraying fire hoses.
"They had to make an
announcement to everybody on
the plane that the fire hoses were
just for show," said state Rep,
Ron Saunders, one of the digni-
taries on board. "This was so
great, I think every time a plane
lands we're going to need to have
this big party."
New Delta flight attendant
Natalie Rouse found out she
would be on the flight only hours
before it left Atlanta, and she said
the hour-and-a-half trip was one
to remember.
"From the second I walked on,
the vibe was so cheerful and
exciting," said Rouse, who hand-
ed out her fair share of in-flight
cocktails. "It was a good, smooth
flight and everybody applauded
on the landing.".
The applause continued inside
the terminal, as steel-drum musi-
cian Sir Cedric Luces jammed
away while officials ate shrimp
cocktail and gave out congratula-
tory speeches and awards.
A smiling girl in a giant conch
shell suit also known as
Carolina Bustamante from Keys
marketing agency Stuart
Newman Associates greeted
the passengers as they picked up
their luggage on the carousel.


However, one bag was noticeably
absent.
"My luggage is missing, and
our guess is either it never left
Atlanta or it's stuck up inside the
plane where nobody knew where
to find it," said Debbie
Zimmerman, district chief of
staff for U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen.
"It was the very first-ever lost
baggage, so I was the training
case," added Zimmerman, who
said Delta was to notify her
Friday of the bag's whereabouts.
"I had to buy a new toothbrush.
That was the only problem."
Ros-Lehtinen led the federal
charge to lobby the Trans-
portation Security Administration
to reverse a decision last July to
deny security screeners for
Marathon a decision that halt-
ed Delta's planned startup for
nearly five months.
Monroe County Airports
Director Peter Horton later devel-
oped a solution for the TSA to
staff Marathon until the agency
can contract with a private
screening company for both
Marathon and Key West airports.
Delta will now serve
Marathon for one year with a rev-
enue guarantee from a $750,000
federal transportation grant
(applied for twice before, but
approved last year) and more
than $300,000 in community
donations.
Marathon Mayor .Chris Bull
f i I I q ; / , , .


summed up the accomplishment
in his address to the crowd
Thursday.
"Today, we celebrate persist-
ence," Bull said. "Today,
Marathon becomes a destina-
tion."
But according to ticket infor-
mation at www.delta.com,
Marathon is a destination costing
much more to fly into than Key
West or Miami international air-
ports.
A round-trip ticket from
March 31 to April 6 out of
Chicago's O'Hare International
Airport through Atlanta to
Marathon costs $1,168.
However, the same flight costs
$858 to Key West and $462 to
Miami.
With an additional layover in
Orlando, the Key West ticket
drops to $673.
Officials hope the conven-
ience for visitors, as well as
locals, will outweigh the extra
costs, and Horton reports flights
through February and March are
more than two-thirds booked.
As for the Grays, convenience
seemed to be the deciding factor.
"Flying into Marathon is won-
derful, very convenient," Sally
Gray said. "I think we saved so
much time instead of driving
from Miami."

London's widow testifies


Hendrick trial
wraps 2nd week,
continues Tuesday
By CAMMY CLARK
cclark@herald.com

The corruption trial of former
Monroe County Attorney Jim
Hendrick ended its second week
Friday with Elaine London testi-
fying that Hendrick helped her
husband and political consultant
Randy Hilliard concoct a legal
explanation for a $29,000 bribe
Hilliard paid to Jack London.
The 1997 bribe paid to Jack
London, then county mayor, was
for his influence in getting a
stalled development project
approved more than a year earli-
er.
Hendrick is accused of help-
ing cover up the bribe. He's
charged with obstructing justice,
conspiracy and two counts of wit-
ness tampering.
Jack London died in Nov-



3/1 with Central AC and Stainless
Steel Appliances starting at
$69,000. Save in wind insurance.
305.293.0675


ember. He had pleaded guilty to
filing a false tax return and faced
up to three years in federal
prison.
With his sudden death, the tes-
timony of his wife of 24 years
became even more important to
federal prosecutors in their case
against the former county attor-
ney.
Elaine London, in a soft-spo-
ken but firm voice, said she was
testifying voluntarily for the gov-
ernment and without immunity.
She told the 12-person jury
her late husband and Hendrick
had been best friends for years.
She testified that Hendrick per-
formed their wedding ceremony,
loaned her $15,000 when she
couldn't pay a tax bill and served
as the family attorney.
Elaine London testified that
her late husband trusted
Hendrick. But that changed
March 27, 2004, the day Jack
London was arrested at Key West
International Airport for failing to
pay taxes on the $29,000 and
lying to federal prosecutors. (The
five-year federal statute of limita-
tions on bribery had already
expired for the 1997 kickback
payment).
After London bonded out of
jail, he spoke to Hendrick. After
that conversation, Elaine London
testified: "Jack was very angry at
Jimmy. He said Jimmy had told


him to basically plead guilty.
That a couple of years at a coun-
try-club prison wouldn't be bad."
In her testimony, Elaine
London collaborated some of the
damning testimony against
Hendrick provided earlier in the
week by Hilliard, also a former
good friend of Hendrick.
Hilliard testified that the
$29,000 was London's share of
$82,500 he received from devel-
oper Marvin Rappaport to make
his "political problem" disappear
over the Hall's Resort redevelop-
ment.
Hilliard testified that
Hendrick, who was developer
Pritam Singh's lawyer, worked
out a "fire-sale" deal between
Singh and Hilliard.
That deal, according to
Hilliard, was that Singh would
pay him his commission on the
expected sale of the now
Roosevelt Annex in Key West
immediately. But in exchange for
the immediacy, Hilliard's
$200,000 cut would become only
$100,000 and Hilliard would
lose the option on his pink house
on the property.
Hilliard testified he needed the
money desperately at the time,
December 1997, because London
needed the money desperately to
pay the $29,000 lien on his sec-
ond home in Ireland.
The trial continues at 10 a.m.
Tuesday at the federal courthouse
in Key West.

The Monroe County School
Board on Tuesday committed to
use district land at Trumbo Point
in Key West to build affordable
housing with a vote of 3-2 with
Chairman Andy Griffiths and
board member Debra Walker dis-
senting..
The district issued a request
for proposals in January to see
what developers want to do with
the Trumbo site.
The Tuesday vote at the
board's meeting at Coral Shores
High School in Tavernier ruled
out the possibility of selling the
land for monetary compensation,
thereby guaranteeing the site will
be used for affordable housing,
board members said.
Walker, who disagreed with
her colleague's vote, said the
board should leave its options
open.
She said the district doesn't
need to retain ownership of the
property. She proposed selling
the property at Trumbo and using


the money to build affordable
housing throughout the Keys, not
just in Key West.
"I am adamantly opposed to
selling to a developer," board
member Duncan Mathewson
said. He said he'd rather offer the
land to teachers and other com-
munity employees. "We don't
need fancy condos," he said.
"We can't let Trumbo land
become anything other than
workforce housing," board mem-
ber John Dick said.
The board is expected to
receive the results of the request
for proposals in April.

Adams delayed
The board will also delay its
decision whether to close Gerald
Adams Elementary School in
Key West.
Board member Steven
Pribramsky asked the board to
vote on a resolution to close
Adams, though the resolution
would not have been a final deci-
sion to close Gerald Adams.

LDRs, zoning map approved


Coco Plum still
point of contention
for City Council
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
again took up the issue of sep-
arate zoning rules for the Coco
Plum neighborhood during
final discussions of the city's
proposed land development
regulations and zoning maps.
The board ultimately
approved the new land rules
(the LDRs on Tuesday and the
zoning map on Thursday) after
engaging in heavy debate with
several residents and landing in
several split votes.
Thursday's discussion cen-
tered around the desires of the
Coco Plum .Beach Property
Owners Association to have
new residential medium zoning
categories for canal-front lots
(RM1) and lots at the comers
of Coco Plum Drive and the
neighborhood's avenues
(RM2) that "preserves the sin-


gle-family detached character
of Coco Plum," according to
association President Lynda
Berrigan.
According to Planning
Director Fred Gross, the new
categories increase setback
spaces between homes and
strip the affordable-housing
density bonuses that would
allow up to 10 units of afford-
able housing per.acre.
The council agreed with the
majority of the rules, although
not with the RM1 zoning on
the large ocean-front properties
on the south side of Coco Plum
Drive that would allow four
units per acre and no zero lot
lines, meaning no attached
townhouses or duplexes.
"Staff recommends that they
be RM like the rest of the city,"
Gross said to open discussions.
"There's almost no practical
reason to have a special zoning
for those lots."
Councilwoman Marilyn
Tempest said she liked the RM
zoning and that the Coco Plum
association hadn't represented


the wishes of property owners
who "didn't anticipate the loss
of density ... and the loss of
zero setbacks that they got
when we broke up RM into dif-
ferent pieces."
Councilman Pete Worthington
agreed and argued for fairness.
"You know what it also does, it
keeps the exact same zoning cat-
egory as in my subdivision," he
said.
Mayor Chris Bull argued for
a RM2 zoning in order to keep
a zoning "specifically designed
for this community" and
adhere to past promises to the
association.
Pinkus also settled on RM2
and reminded the council these
zoning categories exist because
of an "agreement" struck by a
past council when the Coco
Plum association intervened
during adoption of the city's
comprehensive plan.
"It goes to the credibility of
not only that council, the ones
between them to this City
Council and all city councils in
the future," Pinkus said. "I
think it's imperative we keep
that agreement."


Vice Mayor Marjie Mearns
held the swing vote and first
voted down Pinkus' motion for
an RM2 zoning. However, she
later said she had problems
with the decreased side-yard
setbacks in RM and then voted
alongside Bull and Pinkus for
RM2.
During the back-and-forth
discussions, some Coco Plum
residents voiced opposition of
the setbacks proposed by the
association.
"I don't know where these
setbacks came from," resident
Steven Britske said. "I bought
a parcel of land and I had a
dream.... All of a sudden, if you
start changing my setbacks,
there goes everything I
designed to do four years ago."
Resident Rick Servais won-
dered why similar zoning did-
n't extend to similar Marathon
neighborhoods.
"What's fair for the city
should be fair for everyone,"
Servais said. "One area, we
care about workforce housing.
This other area, we don't want
them in our backyard."

The Marathon City Council
met on Tuesday, and Thursday
and took the following actions:
+ Approved a modified
development agreement for the
redevelopment of the Grassy
Key Marina.
The developed includes a
new restaurant, convenient
store with four new fuel pumps,
7,343 square feet of retail
space, a fast-food store, an
office and maintenance of an
existing 26-slip marina with
one marine fuel pump.
However, the council added
a condition that the city would
look into possible permitting
violations surrounding the on-
site tiki bar that was also pro-
posed for redevelopment.
Several neighboring resi-
dents spoke out against the bar
as being illegally built or
expanded sometime in the past,
and several council members
also recalled the bar being red-
tagged by inspectors, although
no city records were presented.
The development agreement
was approved contingent upon
staff's investigation into the

Heard from Councilman
Jeff Pinkus that it would cost
the city $150,000 per year to
maintain the Marathon
Government Center if the city
were to take over the building
from the county for use as a city

TraumaStar may get backup


Sheriff's Office
starts talks with
private firms
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Some private companies
want to take wing with Monroe
County's TraumaStar helicop-
ter ambulance.
"There are a number of [air
ambulance] providers out there
who do what we're doing;"
said Mike Rice, bureau chief of
administration for the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office. "We
have been approached by sev-
eral companies."
Rice said he agreed to meet
Friday with representatives of
a private air-ambulance com-
pany, the third firm to contact
the Sheriff's Office about
forming some type of partner-
ship.
"There really is not anything
solid," Rice said. "It doesn't
cost anything to talk. If we
found a proposal that makes
sense for taxpayers, we would
evaluate it."


Monroe County's new res-
cue helicopter a 1982
Sikorsky S76A with a package
of engine upgrades went
into service in late November
after the original TraumaStar
became too costly to operate.
The current aircraft was pur-
chased from a Pennsylvania
air-ambulance service for $3.7
million.
"We're up and operational,"
said Rice, who oversees the
Aviation Division of the
Sheriff's Office. "We're look-
ing at different ways to work
with the hospitals."
TraumaStar has made 18
transport flights since it
resumed service in mid-
November, flying from the
sheriff's hangar at Florida
Keys Marathon Airport.
"That's a low number based
on historical information from
our prior operations," Rice
said. "It's kind of surprising
since we're in the busy [winter]
season, but we're happy people
are staying healthy."
The Sheriff's -Office owns
and operates TraumaStar to
provide emergency air trans-


port, primarily from the Middle
and Lower Keys, to mainland
hospitals when local facilities
cannot provide specialized
care.
Pilots and mechanics are
employed by the Sheriff's
Office, while Monroe County
Fire-Rescue employs the med-
ical personnel needed on
flights. The county also han-
dles billing through the agency
that bills for ground-ambulance
services.
"Basically, the Sheriff's
Office is in charge of the front
of the bus, and fire-rescue is in
charge of the back of the bus,"
Rice said.
Any partnership with a pri-
vate firm likely would focus on
providing coverage if
TraumaStar was down for
maintenance, Rice said.
"Any partnership would be
structured so that we would
still be operational," Rice said.
"After all the work people have
put into this service, we do not
want to see it go away:"
The agency is concerned
that much of the Keys could be
left in the lurch for a rescue
helicopter if a private company
abruptly decided to pull out of


Monroe County. "The biggest
issue is ensuring a continuation
of service," he said. "We're
clear with [private firms] that
we have a program and we
intend to keep it."


Many rescue flights from
the Upper Keys are handled by
a mainland firm through
Mariners Hospital's associa-
tion with Baptist Health
Systems of South Florida.

'Scuttle' bill gets co-sponsors


Saunders says
'spread support'
around the state
By CHRISTINE BRADEN
cbraden@keynoter.com

A proposed/bill that would put
money toward scuttling ships for
artificial reefs in Florida has
potential, but only time will tell
whether it/ can actually pass
through the'state Legislature dur-
ing the 2007 session that begins
next month.
"It's really exciting and I'm
thrilled about it," bill sponsor
Rep. Doug Holder of Sarasota
told the Keynoter.
If approved, House Bill 759
would create a statewide match-
ing grant program to sink decom-
missioned naval ships as artificial
reefs in Florida waters.
The proposed program would
allocate a maximum of $12 mil-
lion annually toward creation of
the reefs.
Additionally, "each grant
awarded under the program shall
be limited to no more than $3


million and shall be matched by
non-state dollars," the proposed
bill says.
Holder said he believes the
program would provide increased
opportunities for tourism and
economic trade. He also sees the
program as a way to support U.S.
military by essentially recycling
ships that are no longer in use. He
also said he hopes the program
would improve the'environment
and lessen the impact of erosion
to state beaches.
The state spends a lot of
money in an effort to help the
environment and the pilot pro-
gram would aid the process "nat-
urally," Holder said.
"I love the fact that all three of
those ideas are covered," he said.
"When you get a project like this
that has so many benefits, you
can't help but take it on and hope
it works."
Within the bill, Holder uses a
Keys endeavor to sink the 520-
foot USS Hoyt Vandenberg ship
seven miles off Key West as the
proposed pilot project.
"It's kind of a natural pilot


program in that it seems that Key
West is an area a lot of people go
as a destination to dive because of
the warmer weather year round,"
he said. "The whole process
seemed to fall into place. It was
the right spot at the right time."
The $5.7 million Vandenberg
project would receive $2 million
under the proposed bill since it
already has non-state commit-
ments from local and federal
agencies.
The bill has six co-sponsors
and Rep. Ron Saunders, who rep-
resents the Keys, is working to
become the seventh, he said.
"It was better off for us to tag
onto the bill," Saunders said, say-
ing that major support from else-
where in the state could help the
bill in the long run.
"It's best to spread support
across district and party lines,"
Saunders said.
If passed, the program would
fund $2 million toward the
Vandenberg scuttling, and go to
the city of Key West as project
overseer. The city plans to use the
money if the bill passes as
replacement funding for its own
promised $1.3 million.

Writing's on the wall for graffiti


By CHRISTINE BRADEN
cbraden@keynoter.com


To the Key West Police
Department, graffiti is more than
just a little paint on some build-
ings. So the department is look-
ing to crack down on graffiti
offenders as a part of its effort to
reduce crime and clean up the
city.
The problem is not as wide-
spread as it could be, but there are
still several areas in Key West
that have become prone to graffi-
ti, according to department
Special Operations Detective
Wes Barlow.
To discourage more graffiti
within Key West, the department
last week began an islandwide
survey of property to investigate
damage and cultivate suspects.
One area they found that had
been specifically targeted is the
old Hawk missile complex at the
end of Government Road in Little
Hamaca Park.
"The area has an extensive
amount of graffiti," Barlow said,
noting the existence of old and
abandoned buildings that have
made the vicinity popular with


vandals.
Spray paint can be seen on the
walls, eaves and stairwells. The
graffiti often thought of as art
by its creators portrays images
of everything from symbols and
cartoon-ish pictures to actual
writing. One wall even hosts an
elaborate design around the word
"crack."
But because the main portion
of graffiti in Key West is located
where few people see it, some
might not believe it's a big prob-
lem. Not true, say police.
"It's considered criminal mis-
chief," Barlow said. "It's a
destruction of property and that's
obviously not allowed."
Even more importantly, often-
times graffiti is affiliated with
gang activity in an area and can
mean more sinister illegal activi-
ty, he said.
"An increase in graffiti can
indicate an increase in gang activ-
ity," he said. "Sometimes we are
able to tell by graffiti if conflicts
between gangs might escalate."
According to Barlow, who has
training in the meaning behind

Graffiti such as this could be a sign of gang activity, police say.
The local department has begun a campaign to get rid of the
illegal painting.


certain types of graffiti, gang
activity in Key West has. been
around for some time and that the
majority of gangs in Key West
are local. However, Barlow said
there is some affiliation with
major gangs such as the Bloods
and Crips.
Since the department first
began its campaign for informa-
tion on graffiti, it's received one
call about some graffiti behind
TIB Bank on Whitehead Street,
though follow-up found that the


image was most likely not gang
related.
"If you see any graffiti we'd
like to know about. it," Barlow
said, hoping the initiative will be
an effective example of commu-
nity policing. "Sometimes you
might not think anything of it but
it could mean something."
Call the Key West Police
Department's Criminal Invest-
igations Division at 809-1015 to
report graffiti.

travel marketing study

Passengers to be
surveyed at '': .'
Marathon airport : .
By STEVE SANOSKI A .
Keys Sunday reporter ',Q ., ,
ssanoski@keynoter.com ..


According to an air-service
potential report compiled by
Monroe County consultant The
Boyd Group, Key West
International Airport is operat-
ing way beyond full capacity.
The report calls the excess
demand for air service to the
Keys "enormous," estimating
the demand at five times what
Key West can currently handle.
So Thursday's resumption of
commercial air service to
Florida Keys Marathon Airport
with the arrival of a Delta
Connection flight from Atlanta
appears to bode well for the
future of air travel in the Keys.
At least that's what officials
hope.
Of the 3.1 million visitors to
the Keys annually, only 50 per-
cent come via air, including
those who fly into either Miami
or Fort Lauderdale. Only 10
percent of all visitors to the
Keys actually fly into Key
West.
That means 40 percent of all
visitors to the Keys nearly
1.25 million people each year
- are flying into Miami or Fort
Lauderdale to begin their vaca-
tion in the Keys.

widely used on smart phones
across the globe, will ship in
the second quarter on a host of
new devices, including one
intriguing design from a com-
puter-maker not known for
gadgets that double as phones.
While the Windows Mobile
6 upgrade is not likely to gener-
ate buzz like the iPhone coming
from Apple Computer Inc. in
June, could be far more signifi-
cant.
By the end of 2006, nearly
20 smart phones in the United
States shipped with Windows
Mobile, and that figure could
approach 30 by the end of
2007. Worldwide, more than
140 phones ship with Windows
Mobile, dwarfing the number
of devices that use the Palm OS
oi Research in Motion's
BlackBerry software.
RIM, of course, won't let
Microsoft steal too many of its
coveted business customers and
continues to introduce com-
pelling products. On Monday,
Cingular Wireless is expected
to announce that it will sell the
thinnest BlackBerry to date, the
8800, starting on Feb. 21.
Priced at $299, the 8800 will
include the trackball navigation
first used on the BlackBerry
Pearl, a built-in GPS that will
provide spoken driving direc-
tions and, in a first from RIM, a
push-to-talk feature.
Yet if Windows Mobile 6
delivers what Microsoft says, it
should encourage more people
- road warriors and multitask-
ing Moms alike to purchase
phones such as the Motorola Q,
Samsung BlackJack and T-
Mobile Dash. When Mobile 6
launches, expect a host of new
phones from Samsung,
Motorola, HTC, LG and others,
including the first U.S. smart
phone from Toshiba.
Cingular, for instance, sells
12 smart phones, six of them
with Windows Mobile. Each
major U.S. wireless carrier has
at least three models using the
Microsoft software.
These phones are selling
well for a simple reason: They
do a lot for a little in an attrac-
tive package. The BlackJack
sells for $199, while the
Motorola Q sells for $149 at
Verizon.
Hence, the market for put-
ting office tools in your hand,
or the tools used to manage
tasks such as getting the kids to
ballet class on time, continues
to grow.
As does innovation.
SOne device using Mobile 6


will come from Hewlett-
Packard Co., the iPaq 510
Voice Messenger. It won't look
like other smart phones, save
the Pearl, because it is a candy-
bar phone, not the square shape
of the BlackJack or Q.
The other key difference? It
won't have a Qwerty keypad
like most smart phones.
"It is a phone first," said
Niraj Gandhi, HP's product
marketing manager. "But it is
also a device used to stay on
top of what's going on in your
inbox."
Yet anyone who has typed
an e-mail or text message using
a standard phone pad can attest
that is not ideal. So what's a
road warrior to do if she needs
to reply to a message or send a
new one? Speak up.
The iPaq 510 has "voice
reply" for message dictation.
But the message isn't converted
to text; rather it's sent as a
WAV audio file. The recipient
simply clicks on the WAV
attachment to hear the message.
Another neat trick: The phone
reads e-mails and calendar
appointments aloud to users if
they're in a car.
The iPaq 510 will be avail-
able in April or May, Gandhi
said. A carrier agreement hasn't
been announced, but since the
phone is a GSM device, either
Cingular or T-Mobile, the dom-
inant GSM carriers in the
United States, will sell it. With
a carrier contract, the device
will likely be priced at $199,
Gandhi said.
Innovations from other car-
riers will be made shortly to
generate buzz for Mobile 6.
Scott Horn, Microsoft's gen-
eral manager of mobile and
embedded devices, said there
are many key factors in this
upgrade:
E-mail will be read as if it
were on a desktop and will
have more one-click options
such as send, delete or reply to
all.
Combined with the Vista
OS on a PC, Mobile 6 users can
easily swap pictures, music,
movies and contacts into a
smart phone and vice versa.
+ There are new security
features, external storage
devices, and a company's IT
department will be able to
remotely wipe clean informa-
tion stored on a smart phone if
a device is lost or stolen.
A calendar "ribbon" will
help overscheduled users
quickly glance at a daily or
weekly calendar to see if there
are openings for more appoint-
ments. ,

Office Depot


marks gains


4th-quarter
profit rises
27 percent
Associated Press


Office Depot Inc. said
Wednesday its fourth-quarter
earnings rose 27 percent as the
office supplies retailer cut operat-
ing costs and used promotions to
drive holiday sales.
Net income jumped to $135
million, or 48 cents per share,
from $106.3 million, or 34 cents
per share, a year ago. Earnings
adjusted to exclude certain items
were $151.7 million, or 54 cents
per share, versus $117.1 million,
or 38 cents per share, in the 2005
quarter.
Analysts, whose estimates
typically exclude items, were
looking for profit of 52 cents per


share, according to Thomson
Financial.
Sales rose 4 percent to $3.84
billion from $3.72 billion, but
were slightly below Wall Street's
estimate of $3.89 billion. Same-
store sales in North America rose
1. percent. Same-store sales, or
sales in stores open at least one
year, are a key measure of indus-
try performance.
The growth in sales and oper-
ating margin expansion was real-
ized despite a highly promotional
holiday retail environment and
reduced technology sales, the
company said in a statement.
For the year, profit nearly
doubled to $516 million, or $1.79
per share, on 5 percent higher
sales of $15 billion.
Office Depot operates one
store in the Keys, which is in
Marathon.

The upcoming Garden Walk in the Upper Keys features lush gardens and landscaping at six homes. Julle Mead (below) is one
of those showing off the fruits of her labor, including a species of orchid named after her.


Garden Walk coming to fruition


Six Keys homes
participating
in Feb. 23 event
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The idea of landscaping with
a butterfly garden intrigued Julie
Mead, but she hesitated.
"I didn't like caterpillars,"
she recalled.
That was before nature took
its own course. Tropical storms
a decade ago toppled trees that
shaded the Mead family proper-
ty near mile marker 105.
Direct sunlight scorched the
shade-friendly yard foliage,
forcing the gardener to start
over. Mead's thoughts turned to
butterflies.
"I read that full sun is good
for a butterfly garden," she
recounted. "Well, that we have."
Now, plants carefully select-
ed to provide food for caterpil-
lars and nectar for adult butter-
flies cover large areas of the
property., Different butte fly
species reqiiire different plant,


and Mead tries to make sure
they all get enough to eat.
. About a year after the plant-
ing, the butterflies arrived.
"Now we see butterflies every
single day," said Mead, casually
identifying several species visit-
ing on a day earlier this month.
She learned to love caterpil-
lars, and nurtures them through
the pupal stage.
Patrons taking the Great
Keys Garden Walk, hosted by
the Upper Keys Garden Club
from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 23,
can tour the expansive Mead
gardens, along with five other
notable sites.
"These are six gardens of rare
tropical beauty that shouldn't be
missed," said Carolyn Friedman,
an organizer with the Garden
Club.
At the Mead home, visitors
will tour a large orchid house,
which includes the prizewinning
Julie Mead Orchid named for
the gardener.
The property also has koi
ponds and a trail through the

opener


Key West wins
in extra innings
over Westwood
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

It was 11:21 Thursday
night when freshman Nolan
Thomas' sacrifice fly scored
courtesy runner Alfred
Rahming to give the Key West
High School baseball team a
5-4 eight-inning victory over
Westwood Christian at Rex
Weech Field Thursday night.
It was the regular-season
opener for the Conchs, who
split two preseason games last
weekend, and came in the first
round of the six-team Bash at
the Beach, which concludes
tonight.
Louie Pazo led off the
eighth with a single and
Rahming went in to run for
him. Rahming went to third
on a ball-four- wild pitch to
Artie Grizzle. Charlie Walker-
Yhap was then intentionally
walked, setting up Thomas as
the hero.
SOn a 3-2 pitch,. Thomas
flied to center field deep
enough to score Rahming with
the winning run.
As they did in preseason
games against Marathon and
Southridge, the Conchs again
came from behind.
.. See CQNCHS /36


His semifinal match in the 189-
pound class Friday night was com-
pleted too late to be included in
today's paper.
Major is hoping to better his
sixth-place finish in last year's
state meet.
In Thursday's first round, he
took down Chris Kavouklis of
Tampa Jesuit for a 5-1 decision.
His teammate, 215-pound sen-
ior Devin Genchi, was pinned
Friday by Barney Wainwright of
Suwanee, a state champion last
year when he weighed 152
pounds.


"He's built like a tree trunk,"
said Key West coach John
Moeller.
Wainwright improved his
record to 37-1 while 'Genchi
dropped to 30-5 and was sent into
the consolation bracket.
In Thursday's first round,
Genchi used his best weapon, a
-headlock move to pin 215-pound
opponent Taylor Rotunda of
Hernando late in the second peri-
od. It was a back-and-forth match
with both wrestlers spending time
on their backs.
Coral Shores' 130-pound sen-
ior James Mazur won in the first
round but lost Friday to Michael


Calafiore of New Port Richey.
On Thursday, Mazur, the son of
Coral Shores coach Andy Mazur,
won by decision over 28-12
Tigran Kesayan of Arnold High in

Coral Shores falls short


Comeback
attempt ends in
seventh for Canes
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A last-chance rally nearly
turned the game around, but
the Coral Shores Hurricanes
were stopped just short, 5-3, in-


Wednesday's baseball season
opener against LaSalle.
"We played a nice game,"
head coach Jeff Meyers said
after the Canes slashed a four-
run deficit to two runs in their
final at-bats.
"Our defense fielded well
for the most part, and we
pitched very well," Meyers
said.
Coral Shores outhit LaSalle,


10-4, as Hurricane sophomore
Ryan Biondoletti no-hit the
Lions through three innings of
Wednesday's opener.
But LaSalle combined its
only extra-base hit of the game
- a double by a leftfielder
named Alex Rodriguez with
a single, a walk and Cane
defensive mistakes to score
four runs in the top of the sixth
inning.

Lady Eagles open Tuesday


--ACS won't play
in a district for
the season
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Island Christian School's
Lady Eagles have more expe-
rience than last year, but not
yet enough to compete with
South Florida's best Class A
-softball _squads7-s-ays coach
Robert Lucas.
"We've got six starters


back, but we're still a very
young team," Lucas said.
"This will be a year of learn-
ing fundamental skills and
improving as we go along."
The Lady Eagles will not
compete in state softball dis-
trict play in 2007, since the
Miami area features some of
the strongest clubs in the
state.
"We have a way to go
before we get there," Lucas
said. "This year our schedule
is a mix of varsity teams that
we can compete with, and

junior-varsity teams."
The first of those arrives
for the Eagle opener at 4 p.m.
Tuesday, when the Key West
High School JV plays in
Islamorada.
"Our biggest concern is
consistency of pitching,"
Lucas said. "We'll have pitch-
ing by committee again this
year."
No one on the Eagle roster
can throw fast-pitch fireballs,
but youngsters like Kelley
McDonald, Yana Byaznova
and Kate Dupre can get it
over the plate.
"We're not looking for
strikeouts, but we don't want
to give up a ton of walks,"
Lucas said. "These girls can
find the strike zone so people
will have to hit the ball to beat
us."
Returning players include
Dominique Whitehead,
Jennifer Subic, Karllee
Kursteiner, Casey Willey,
Jessica Willey and Dupre.
Melanie Meroni and
Byaznova will work into the
lineup, Lucas said.
"Our infield defense
should be pretty good," he
said. "We need to work on
pitching, and being able to hit
fast pitching."
Whitehead, Dupre and
Subic likely will form the
heart of the batting order.


THE FUNDAMENTALS

OF HOME APPRAISAL
A home appraisal is an "opinion of value" conducted by a licensed professional to estimate the
worth of a property. Appraisals are usually ordered by the buyer's lending agency, but can also
be requested by a seller who wants to determine a reasonable asking price of a home.

An appraiser uses three common methods to determine the value of a home. The "Cost
Approach" to value adds the cost of improvements made on the home to the property value of
the land, minus any physical deterioration and functional or economic obsolescence. The -
"Comparison Approach" to value compares the subject property (the one being appraised) to the
other nearby properties of similar size and quality that have recently sold. The "Income
Approach" is used for income-producing properties (as opposed to residential properties), and
takes into account the yearly net income an investment property will produce.

Most appraisers of residential homes evaluate the condition and amenities of the property against
other home of comparable size in the neighborhood. If repairs are needed or code violations
exist, they subtract these from the value of the home. All factors are tallied and a final "opinion
of value" is given in the form of a certified appraisal.

Rough start to lacrosse season


Palmer Trinity
sweeps the
Canes at home
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Coral Shores' lacrosse teams
learned Thursday that nothing
will be easy this spring, as
Palmer Trinity swept the boys'
and girls' varsity squads.
Experience showed for the
visiting Falcons on the boys
side, as Palmer stunned the
Canes' largely rebuilt roster, 16-
1.
"It's hard to win when the
other team can pass and catch,
and we can't," Cane boys' coach
Erik Bryan assessed after the
home opener.
Midfielder Mike Gregory
broke away to score the
Hurricanes' lone goal.


D.J. Farr, the Coral Shores
MVP last year for his work in
goal, did his best with 14 saves
against Palmer.
The Hurricane girls (1-1) tied
their match against the Lady
Falcons .in the late going, but
Palmer tallied two late scores for
an 8-6 win.
Rachel Catanio had two goals
for the Lady Hurricanes. Darcie
Spaulding, Kelsey Garcia, Lexie
Glista and Vallarie Ostenson
each had one goal. Sarah Taylor
made three saves as goalie.
The Coral Shores girls' team
opened the season Wednesday
with a lopsided win, beating
Killian High School, 18-3.
Catanio, a veteran sopho-
more, scored six goals against
Killian. Spaulding and Ostensen
each scored four goals, and
Glista had two.
The Hurricane defense limit-
ed Killian to 10 shots, and


Taylor blocked seven.
The boys' team travels to
lacrosse power Gulliver Prep on
Wednesday, then hosts American
Heritage of Plantation at 1 p.m.
Feb..24.
Coral Shores' girls play at
Palmetto on Thursday, and are
home for a 3 p.m. Feb. 24 game
against Taravella of Coral
Springs.
Plantation Key School's
Panthers won their Thursday
contest against Palmer's middle-
school team, 8-2.
"We're doing outstanding this
year, like night and day from last
year," club team coach Jude
Lindback said.
Plantation Key's program has
enough players for two squads
this spring, one for experienced
players and another for first-
player play.
The "Blue Team" veterans
also have'wins over Palmetto
Middle School and the Boca
Jets.

Junior shootout
on the calendar
for this month
Youth prevailed over experi-
ence at the Feb. 10 and 11
Islamorada Open Tennis
Championships at the Founders
Park Tennis Center in
Islamorada.
In the women's division of
the USTA-sanctioned tourney,
16-year-old Keilly Ulery of
Wellington in Palm Beach
County, who's No. 55 in the 18-
and-under girls' national rank-
ings, dominated the field.
In the opening round, she dis-
missed Coral Shores' No. 1
player Sydney.Stoup 6-0, 6-0.
In the semi-finals, Ulery
faced Ocean Reef tennis pro
Melissa O'Keefe. Ulery, headed
for Vanderbilt University in the
fall, won 6-1, 6-1.
Then in the afternoon final,
Ulery didn't lose a game to 2006
champ Heather Hallett from
Atlanta and Islamorada.
In the men's side of the
championships, a final show-
down between top-seeded 18-
year-old Alejandro Pardo and
No. 2 seed local pro Kris
Fitzpatrick seemed inevitable.

After receiving a first-round

And in the semis, Pardo, from

The other side of the draw
saw Fitzpatrick dispensing
opponents with equal impres-
siveness.
After a first-round bye,
Fitzpatrick blanked Jerome
Smolver of Islamorada
6-0, 6-0, then defeated Richie
Lhommedieu of Setauket, N.Y.,
6-1, 6-0.
In the Sunday final, the pair

fine show before Pardo emerged
the 6-3, 7-5 victor.
"A nice tournament with

'Gabfest' ends


with Conch win


Boys and girls
squads defeat
the Dolphins
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


With their crisp top-spin
strokes defying the wind, the two
Gabbys battled on what, at Key
West High School, serves as cen-
ter court the one nearest the
gym. Students lined the border-
ing green chain-link fence shout-
ing encouragement while behind
them parents and fans watched
the back-and-forth in lawn
chairs.
It was Key West's Gabby
Scammacca against Marathon's
Gabby Brossard in the girls' No.
1 singles match Thursday after-
noon.
Scammacca served an ace at
40-30 to win the first game, but
when Brossard came back to tie
it at 1-1 when a Scammacca lob
sailed wide, it was apparent that
both players had a shot at victo-
ry.
That timeless tennis refrain
- "come on" that comes
after bad shots was heard from
both players, but there were
more good shots than bad ones.
Scammacca led 5-3, but she
double-faulted to allow Brossard
back in the match. It was 5-5
before Scammacca ran off three
consecutive games to win the set,
8-5.
The victory set the tone for a
successful afternoon for the
Conchs. Both the girls and boys
won by 7-0.
"It was exciting to be play-
ing," said Scammacca, a sopho-
more who took over the No. 1
spot. -from senior Hannah
Findlay, who is playing only
doubles because of a knee prob-
lem. "It was only the first period
this morning and I wanted to be
out here. I made more errors than
I usually do. I was a little nerv-


ous."
"I was hoping for the best,"
said Brossard, the Dolphins' sen-
ior captain. "Her serve is always
good and.she's a hard hitter."
Key West coach Paul Findlay
said Scammacca "bore down
when she had to and played the
important points right."
Marathon .coach Mark
Hooper said he was happy to see
such a well-played match so
early in the season. "It's what
high school tennis is all about ...
it's wonderful."
In the No. 1 boys' match, Key
West's Nick Lark defeated Alex
Donaldson, 8-4.
"It's getting close and closer
between us," Donaldson said.
"He broke my serve, I broke
back and got back in the match,
but it slowly slipped away."
Other Conch boy winners
were No. 2 Bryce McBratnie,
who defeated Kerry Wonderlin,
8-0; Andrew Wallace, who
defeated seventh-grader John
Danaher, 8-4; Nick Scammacca,
who defeated Sean Quinlin, 8-2;
and Justin Tomita, who won 8-3
over Weston Wiatt.
No. 2 Conch girl Sara
Fitzsimmons won, 8-6, over
Angela Farello, and Mary Jo
.Bruce defeated Annabelle
Walker, 8-1. Marathon brought
only three girls to the match.
In girls' No. 1 doubles,
Scammacca and Findlay defeat-
ed Brossard and Farello, 8-2. The
No. 1 boys' double team of Lark
and McBratnie defeated
Donaldson and Wonderlin, 8-3.
The boys' doubles team of
George Clark .and Avery
Axthelm also won.
The Conchs will play at 3
p.m. Tuesday against LaSalle at

And Key West
boating event
is in March

From the odd and unusual to
the new and necessary, parts
and equipment that make life
easier in, on or under water in
the Keys can be found at the
12th annual Gigantic Nautical
Flea Market.
The event is set for Feb. 24
and 25 at Founders Park, mile
marker 87 bayside on
Plantation Key.
The annual two-day open-air
market allows bargain hunters
to check out new and used boat
parts, electronics, marine prod-
ucts, scuba and snorkel gear,
dock equipment, nautical arts
and crafts, fishing gear and
clothing.
Poking through boxes of
loose parts, boaters who have
been everywhere and seen
everything ofteh turn up the
oddball or one-of-a-kind fitting
found nowhere else.
Fish chasers looking for
deeply discounted rods, reels,
line and lures come from miles
away to ogle the angling gear
on display.
Flea market hours are 8 a.m.
to.5 p.m. Feb. 24 and 9 a.m. to
3 p.m. Feb. 25. There is no
charge for admission.
All funds raised benefit the
Upper Keys Rotary Foundation
Scholarship fund, which helps
local students pay for college.

is free and there is plenty of
parking.
All proceeds go toward the
club's scholarship fund that dis-
tributed more than $40,000 last
year between Key West High
School scholarships and smaller
awards to local grade schools.
The show features a wide
selection of new boats from
many of the largest boat dealers
in the Florida Keys.
The large nautical market
offers boaters and fishing
enthusiasts everything from
new and used rods and reels, to
top-of-the-line Sperry boat
shoes, hard-to-find boat acces-
sories and nautical art.
Booths extend along the
wide cement pier at the Truman
Waterfront and visitors can
shop for everything from fish-
hooks to engine parts. Nautical
clothing, furniture, and difficult
to get boat tools can also be
found at the nautical market.
This year the Rotary Club is
adding a children's section to
the Boat Show. There will be a
bounce house, petting zoo, par-
ticipation from the Key West
fire and police departments and
many other features to entertain
the little ones.
Additionally, the state's Fish
Florida rods-and-reels program
is providing 800 free rods, reels
and tackle boxes. And youths
will have the opportunity to
participate in a four-part educa-
tional program: The
Responsible Angler, Bait and
Tackle, Knot Tying and
Equipment, and Casting. After
completing this short and fun
program, the kids will be given
rods, reels and a tackle box, and
be shown how to cast from the
pier.

Guthrie family's American roots


Scores turn out
for legacy tour
in Tavernier
By WALLY DOBELIS
L'Attitudes contributor


he legacy of Woody
Guthrie, author of the third
best-known American
anthem (unofficial, after "The
Star-Spangled Banner" and
"America the Beautiful," bump-.
ing shoulders with "God Bless
America") is carried forth by
members of his second family,
now in their fourth generation.
The Guthrie Family Legacy
Tour is playing on a national cir-
cuit, and we heard them in
Tavemier on a rainy night Feb.
12 in the 769-seat auditorium of
Coral Shores High School.
The above numbers, my con-
coction, are historically correct.
The anti-fascist and anti-racist
folk hero troubadour, born in
1912 as Woodrow Wilson
Guthrie in Okemah, Okla., son
of a broke cowboy/land specula-
tor/politician, was an early Okie
dust-bowl departee, moving in
1931 to California toting with
wife Mary Jennings and three
children.
By 1939 he was in New York,


hooking up with Pete Seeger and
the Almanac Singers (later the
Weavers), composing union and
social protest songs, and eventu-
ally writing a sometime column
for the Daily Worker. But protest -
and anti-fascism and anti-racism
were his objectives, not commu-
nism, and he was unscathed-by
the congressional committee
investigators.
Thus Woody, a giant natural
but musically untrained talent,
continued to write verse and add
such music as he deemed appro-
priate, and perform. Hundreds of
folksingers and millions of
-music lovers took his message to
their hearts, and Bob Dylan,
Joan Baez and Phil Ochs paid
tribute by copying his style.
Meanwhile, he built a new
family with dancer Marjorie
Mazie in 1946 with three chil-
dren: Arlo, Joady and Nora.
Arlo's children Abe, Cathy,
Annie and Sarah Lee and the lat-
ter's husband Johnny Irion, plus
all-around musician Gordon
Titcomb, comprise the basic trav-
eling tour, other members drop-
ping in and out. Nora actually
runs the Guthrie Foundation,
administering the 3,500 song
lyrics found after Woody's death
in 1967, with some of them used


in the successful 15-song
"Mermaid Avenue" record by
Billy Bragg and Wilco in 2000.
A second edition was released
soon after.
But I'm racing ahead, like an
Arlo Guthrie monologue. In the
late 1940s, Woody started ailing
of an unknown disease. He
sought relief in California, mar-
rying artist Anneke van Kirk, and
having another daughter, Lorinna
Lynn. But the disorder even-
tually identified as the rare
Huntington's disease, the physi-
cal and mental disease that insti-
tutionalized and killed his mother
- persisted, and he was institu-
tionalized off and on, starting in
1954, eventually passing away in
1967 at the Creedmor State
Hospital in Queens, N.Y.
Now to the performance. Arlo
is a wild-haired leader, who
makes up the program as he
moves along, singing songs
whose lyrics he can remember at
the moment, he claims. It starts
with a Woody review, adding
some Arlo numbers, all follow-
ing a guitar-heavy beat, inter-
rupted by Arlo's far-ranging
monologues that break everyone
up (he sometimes loses the point,
but recovers), until some lyric
Sarah Lee and Johnny Irian
numbers lighten the load.
It is a nostalgia trip, but not
overly, with light politics, a posi-
tive discourse on the individual's
impact on society (the unknown
man who told Joseph his
brethren went thataway was
responsible for him being sold to
the Egyptians, for Moses, Israel


and the world as we know it, and
such). An ancient wire recording
of Woody's rambling gave a
genetic clue ofArlo's predisposi-
tions.
Tributes to Steve Goodman's
"City of New Orleans" ("Good
Night America") and Cisco
Houston's "St. James Infirmary
Blues" eventually led up to the
piece de resistance, "Alice's
Restaurant," Arlo's 1968 debut
masterpiece, an 18-minute
monologue spoken over the short
tune of "You Can Get Anything
You Want at Alice's Restaurant,"
about an arrest for littering that
led to his draft deferment during
the Vietnam War and some glob-
al conclusions, that brought the
audience to its feet.
The concluding "This Land Is
Your Land," interrupted by remi-
niscences, almost anti-climactic,
nevertheless heightened the
experience.
The Guthrie Family Legacy
Tour playing in Tavemier con-
sisted of Arlo, daughter Sarah
Lee and son-in-law JR .mny Irion
(a 4-year-old granddaughter also
made a stage appearance), as
well as son Abe Guthrie, an
accomplished keyboard artist
and vocalist and leader of his
own Xavier band; and Gordon
Titcomb, a pedal-steel artist,
whose mandolin provides the
punctuation to a guitar and two-
keyboard (Arlo also plays one)
performance.

City of New Orleans train in

'The Exonerated' makes audiences think


Play represents
those 'betrayed
by the system'
Sunday and Monday
evenings at the Red Barn
Theatre is when the
troupe known for its song,
dance and comedy goes to the
dark side for a serious and
intense examination of Death
Row inmates found innocent
after years of imprisonment.
It's a disturbing look at
something we don't want to
even think about that some-
one like you or I could be false-
ly accused and never get the
issue straightened out properly.
True stories of six people -
three black, three white -
betrayed by the system and


slater freed
are told
directly
from court
docu- .
ments,
deposi-
;tions, testi-
monies or
letters.
Many
of the tales
-. involve
Judi Bradford chilling
abuses of
power from judges and lawyers
and outright bullying by small-
minded enforcement officers.
There is nothing fair about it.
"Imagine everything you did
between 1976 and 1992," says
a woman exonerated of a cop
killing. "Now remove all of it."
The script by Jessica Blank


and Eric Jensen arose from a
symposium on the death penal-
ty at Columbia University that
kindled a spark, leading to
more than 40 interviews with
exonerated death row inmates.
The anti-death penalty play
won two awards at the
Edinburgh Festival Fringe
2005, the Champion of Justice
Award 2005 from the National
Association of Criminal
Defense Lawyers and the
Amnesty International Freedom
of Expression Award 2005, and
other theater and drama awards.
It has been performed across
the country with cast members
like Richard Dreyfuss, Mia
Farrow and Lyle Lovett, and it
has been enacted for the United
Nations, Janet Reno, Supreme
Court Justice David Souter,
Sen. Patrick Leahy ard mem-


bers of the U.S. Justice
Department.
The show is directed by
Carole McCartee, never one to
shy away from a challenge and
the actors include Jerome
Covington, Larry Erskine,
Dan Dempsey, Stephen
Fletcher, Rebecca Gleason,
Andre Harper, Hip Hop artist
Mook "J", Cassandra
Womack and Red Barn regu-
lars Tom Murtha and Chris
Stone (who performed in Red
Barn's first production in
1981.)
McCartee said the play puts
things in perspective, causing
us to look more broadly at what
we worry about day to day.
The cruel fates of the six
powerless former inmates
leaves the audience to ponder
abstractions like "Justice" and


"Reality," and the concept of
"Innocent until proven guilty."
It also leaves us to wonder
where the hideous miscreants
who did commit the crimes are.
It should be required view-
ing for anyone in law enforce-
ment and the justice system.
Probably the members of those
professions who would actually
attend are not the abusive ones,
but their awareness might miti-
gate the effects of their lesser
colleagues.
The show opened last-.
Sunday and runs Sundays and
Monday through this month.

Both artists will feature new
original oil paintings and signed
limited edition prints at today's
show.
Tracy is an artist of many
styles; some say his paintings
are reminiscent of Van Gogh,
but that he also incorporates a
flash of Klimt. His commis-
sioned work of St. Patrick's
Cathedral poses the cathedral
among the clouds.
He now also works in wood,
creating Koi fish panels of 3D
luminescence, combining gold
foil with oils under resin. The
panels of the underwater world
are highly decorative and are
often made into various types of
tables, bar tops and other pieces
of furniture.
Tracy comes to Key West
every year to visit to visit A Boy
and His Dog gallery and paints
oils of famous (Fleming Street)
and not-so-famous (east side of
Key West) homesteads.

Artists Steve Tracy from

"Milo" Buck, now a resi-
dent of Key West, will have an
exhibition today at A Boy and
His Dog Fine Art, 826 Duval St.

SBoth artists are collected
internationally and throughout
the U.S. Tracy, now teaching in
Golden, Colo., worked and
showed his work in New York
City for several years, including
a one-man show at The Friars
Club and other venues.
Buck's works have been col-
lected by the House of Blues
Museum in New Orleans and by
numerous celebrities.

er-than-life images of Bob
Marley, Janis Joplin, Jimi
Hendrix, The Beatles, Tony
Bennett, Gerry Garcia, Marilyn
Monroe, Capt. Jack Sparrow,

been featured there since he
moved here from Santa Cruz,

"I


By CRICKET DESMARAIS
L'Attitudes contributor

SWen Mark Twain saw
the whirling dervishes
turning in Cairo," said
Coleman Barks, "he noticed that
some of them were turning
faster. So he timed them. Now,
that's a very American view."
Fortunately for our western
world, Barks a poet, preemi-
nant scholar and translator of the
whirling dervish and great mys-
tical poet of Persia who wrote
thousands upon thousands of
verses on love, longing and lone-
liness embraces a wholly dif-
ferent approach. Acting upon fel-
low poet Robert Bly's sugges-
tion, Barks has freed Rumi trans-
lations "from their scholarly
cages," helping the Persian poet
reach out to us across eight cen-
turies to remind us what poetry
is for.
All are welcome to experi-
ence the enlightening poetry of
Rumi and Barks at the Heritage
House, 410 Caroline St., Sunday
at 3 p.m. for the Robert Frost
Poetry Festival.
"Preserving the Arts:
Readings and Reflections" will
feature Barks reading Rumi
translations and his own work as
well as local poet Rosalind
Brackenbury. For more informa-
tion, call 296-3573.

The interview
L'Attitudes: How did you
come to poetry (or how did poet-
ry come to you)?
Barks: When I was about. 12
years old, I started keeping a lit-
tle notebook and in it I kept
words that I loved, like "azalea,"
or "halcyon," which is the bird
that spreads it wings and calms
the waters in mythology.
(Laughs). I think it's the name of


a drug now that calms you
down. "Jejune," meaning intel-
lectually empty. A totally useless
word.
L'Attitudes: How did you
find them?
Barks: Mostly it was the lis-
tening, the hearing, the taste of
language. Like little candies or
something. And I also put in that
little notebook images of things,
like a boy, stirring a spider web
with a stick. Images with no
meaning attached to them. I
remember one of the first
metaphors, it came from the phe-
nomenon that occurs at sunset,
when there's a little darkness,
and the tinge of dark that
comes... it was like the wake of
some dark feather that fell. A lit-
tle fancy for a 12-year-old, isn't
it? It was a collection of tools to
use to make a poem, words that
tasted good and images that held
my attention.
L'Attitudes: It's interesting
that that you came into it
through images and words,
being that that is what poetry is

made up of, and the fact that you
then became a translator of
Rumi's work.
Barks: The French say that
every translation is a trail. The
word is similar, a kind of a pun.
Of course that's true. You cannot
translate Shakespeare into
Chinese. You can't do it, its
absurd, but you have to try. It's
the same thing with the transla-
tion of 13th Century Persian into
English. But we have to try,
because the genius of other parts
of the world have to be metabo-
lized into other ways of seeing
into our lives.
That was important to the art
in Rumi's world view. His com-
passion and his humor have to
come over and help us be as
mature as he was, and as wild.
Translation is absolutely neces-
sary, and it's always a failure. A
poem is just what it is in its orig-
inal language. It's not a poem in
some translation thing. It has to
be brought out of some halfway
point of scholarly accuracy,
taken into a work of art. The
poets that I love and taught me
language help me do that. I
translate into free verse, not
rhymed. It's held together by
resonance and imagery and other
ways, but it's closer to conversa-

work is really very professional.
Every year, we get better. It's
quite impressive."
Two pots and dinner costs
$25, and beer and wine will be
served for donations. Musician
Rob Sweet will provide a "non-

evening. Pork and vegetarian
stir-fry over rice with an egg
roll, salads and teas will be
served, as well as Mud-Pi's
desserts, a final course returning
guests have come to look for-
ward to each year.
Dinner will finish with a
complementary champagne toast
as everyone joins Mayor Morgan
McPherson when he dedicates
Gogin's newest wall mural, "A
Splash of Key West Color." The
new mural washes across the
curved entryway wall of the the-
ater. Bold splashes of abstract
color will greet guests as the
mayor officially turns the year-
long work project over to FKCC
and Keys citizens.
"All in all, I think this will be
our best event to date," Gogin
said. "There has been so much
terrific ceramic energy that has
gone into the dinner and the wall
mural."
Tickets can be purchased at
the door or can be reserved by
calling Gogin's office at

these themes through the subjects in his paintings, young gay men. The gallery is open 10

Wyland Galleries

To Present

Dino Rosin

February 17-18

KEY WEST, Fla. Dino Rosin,
world-renowned for his superlative
sculptures in glass, is to debut his
latest marine and abstract works at
Wyland Galleries of Key West, 102
Duval St. Rosin will unveil his
artistry, including several pieces
exclusive to Wyland Galleries, from
2 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 17, and
noon to 6 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 18.
Rosin was born in Venice, Italy,
and his family subsequently moved
to the glassmaking island of Murano.
He honed his craft studying with
leading Italian artists in glass, later
collaborating with art legends
including Picasso and Chagall.


"Rosin is intensely, totally
involved in each piece he creates,"
said Wyland Galleries of Key West's
vice-president Jim Weir, who
recently visited the artist in Murano.
"It's remarkable to see the joy in his
expression as the glass takes shape."
Rosin is best known for his use of
the striated glass called calcedonia.
His sculptures are characterized by
rich cobalt blues, rose tones and
even reds as well as a rare.grace
of line and form. The exact flow of
lines and color of calcedonia cannot
be duplicated, making each of his
pieces unique.
Rosin's glassmaking process,
explains Weir, is much like a well-
choreographed ballet.
"The foundry is hot, with five
furnaces blasting heat into the room.
and four people move about with
molten glass on the ends of six-foot
steel rods or implements to shape the
glass," he says.
Among the pieces Rosin will
unveil at his Wyland Galleries show
are three dolphin images capturing
the marine mammals' liveliness and
fluid motion, and an anchor whose
beauty transcends its subject's
prosaic use.
Art lovers are invited to meet
Rosin, and discover his latest
masterworks, Feb. 17-18 only at
Wyland's 102 Duval St. gallery.

Heard around the harbor


Dockside: Same
music tradition,
some new specials
By DICK CONKLIN
L'Attitudes Contributor

Back in the day, a highlight
of our first weeklong
Keys vacation was the
Sunday night we decided to
bravely venture off the Overseas
Highway to see what lurked in
those mangroves along
Sombrero Boulevard.
That's when we discovered
Boot Key Harbor, a true Keys
treasure that is invisible from
busy U.S. 1. We also heard the
unmistakable sounds of live rock
and roll emanating from a little
bar on the marina, so we pulled
over and crashed what at first
seemed like a big private party,
where everyone knew each other
and a celebration was definitely
underway.
Our discovery, of course, was
the weekly Sunday Jam Session
at the Dockside Bar & Grill, a
tradition that has been taking
place since the first Spanish
explorers (or maybe pirates)
landed here, seeking cold
refreshments, a hot meal, and a
place to show off their best

restaurants traditions alive and well, including a 'boaters
welcome' greeting.


moves.
Over the years, Dockside
owners and staff have come and
gone, each making their mark on
this waterside watering hole.
There were Carolyn's Tacky
Tourist parties, Karen's
Sombrero Bridge race, Larry's
appearance as the New Year's
Baby on a Harley, and who can
forget Chef Rosgo's "Rosgo
Bismo," a pink concoction
designed to render first aid to
overeaters.
The pub's customers are as
varied as its traditions. As a
neighborhood hangout, it serves
locals and snowbirds from the
surrounding Sombrero and
Flamingo areas, many of whom
prefer to walk, and boaters of all
kinds, from cruisers aboard luxu-
ry yachts to year-round live-


aboard anchored out in the har-
bor.
As one long-time boater
explained, "This place is very
special to us. We live in cramped
quarters on our boat, so the
Dockside serves as our living
room."
In 2007, new management
has acquired the dock, and the
new regime wants to return
some long-time traditions, while
making the locally owned and
operated Dockside better than
ever. Lance Becker is the new
owner, assisted by partner Bill
Trefry. Bruce Becker (no relation
to his boss) is back as general
manager, Chef Lee has stayed
on, Roy McAdams is the dock-
master, and most of the staff has

YtJf a


Thompson: 'It's been a lovely cruise'


Buffett archivist
says she's enjoyed
the entire trip
indy Thompson had
never even heard of
Jimmy Buffett when a
failed relationship caused her to
change her latitude and her atti-
tude. That and dodging a wind
chill factor of 45 degrees below
zero some 30 years ago landed
the adventurer in Key West,
eventually linking her to the
son of a son of a sailor and
Gonzo Girl.
"I was 8 years old when I
read the book 'Dangerous
Island' and although I have
traveled quiet a bit, my dream
has-always been to live on a
tropical island," she said.
With that in mind, Cindy
took the money she had earned,
working as a waitress in a
Wisconsin airport restaurant
and said goodbye to her mom
and dad. Alone and with all her
worldly possessions stuffed into
a backpack and with her tent
and a lamp, she bought an old
bright-blue Volkswagen beetle
that needed a jump-start every
time the engine was turned off.
Keeping the faith that that hunk
of junk was her vehicle to para-
dise, Cindy out smarted it -
she kept it full of gas and
always running.
The road to paradise had
another pot hole that would
challenge Cindy's unbridled
spirit: Getting as far as Jekyll
Island on the Georgia coast, she
found what she thought to be a
safe hold and without another
soul in sight she pitched her
tent, even though there was a -
sign that clearly read "No
Camping!"
"I was really looking for-
.ward to having dinner on the
dune that evening. You know
what I mean Sammie there's
just something about salt air
that stimulates the old appetite.
So I made a quick trip to the
corer grocery store and when I
returned 30 minutes later you
could have knocked me over
with a feather because it was
gone! It was all gone! My tent,
my home on the road had been
stolen and there was no one in
sight."
"I'd be a liar if I said it did-
n't changed things but I wasn't
about to let someone's evil
ways ruin my day."
Taking a deep breath and
exhaling, Cindy had a pleasant
thought. She recalled her first


night in
the Florida
Keys..
"It was
February
1975 when

my sleep-
ing bag on
top of the
Bahia
Honda
Bridge, I
Sammie Mays crawled in
and stared
up at the moon. The sound of
palm fronds rustling in the wind
lulled me to sleep. That was as
close to heaven as I had ever
been."
The next morning, Cindy
pooled her money with some-
one she had met and took a sin-
gle engine plane ride. Excited
by what she saw, she bought
the local newspaper and turned
to the classified. On that day
she rented a Stock Island
houseboat and took a job wait-
ing tables at Pizza Hut.
For those of you who are
asking yourself who in the heck
is Cindy Thompson, take a look
inside the booklet of Jimmy
Buffett's new "Take The
Weather With You" CD and
you'll find Cindy's name in the
company of Savannah Jane


Buffett, Mark Knopfler and
Sunshine Smith in Jimmy's
"Special Thanks" section.
Cindy is Jimmy Buffett's trust-
ed archivist and let me tell you,
this woman knows all there is
to know about Jimmy Buffett.
Sometimes she even knows
what Buffett's gonna do before
Buffett knows what Buffett's
gonna do.
When I got with Cindy, she
was up to archiving the original
"Cheeseburger In Paradise"
lyrics, which were written on a
legal pad and miraculously had
no scratch outs.
"That's pretty amazing when
you can write a hit song on the
first draft," Cindy said.


Her office was a curio cabi-
net of Buffett memorabilia and
as you can imagine, it was
Buffett this and Buffett that.
Buffett for President stickers,
photos of Buffett in his flying
machines, Buffett in his flats
boat, Buffett in his sailboat, a
collage of colorful backstage
Buffett concert passes, even a
Buffett hand puppet, which we
both agreed was downright
scary.
But what tickled me the
most was not Frankie and Lola
standing there naked after their
second honeymoon in
Pensacola, but Buffett's report

math pretty much across the
board.
The lyrics from "12 Volt
Man" popped into my head, "I
never got a grip on penmanship
- could never make the small
Ls flow. Seldom found the trick
to arithmetic three plus two be
more."
Hey bubba! I can sympa-
thize.
Cindy laughed out loud
when she thought about the
time she and Sunshine flew to
Orlando with Buffett piloting
the plane. He had already been
given clearance to land; Sun
and Cindy had previously made
hotel and rental car arrange-
ments. Disney World was com-
ing into view when all of a sud-
den Jimmy diverts the plane to
New Orleans. Why? Because
he felt like it damn it, what
else!
"Sun and I hammered on
him about sticking to the plan
and that you just don't pop into
a city without making reserva-
tions. But what do you do with
someone as spontaneous as
Jimmy You just hang on for
the ride," she said. "You can
never be too prepared when
traveling with Jimmy Buffett.
I'm just glad he didn't decide to
fly to Antarctica that day."
In November 1985, Cindy
had just returned home after a


friend and business partner in
the Margaritaville store pulled
into the driveway. "Hey Cindy,
meet me at Margaritaville
tomorrow. I've got a job for
you," she said.
"I didn't need a job," Cindy
said. "What I needed was space
and time to get my sanity back
from being cooped up for so
long. I didn't have to give it too
much thought; the next morn-
ing it was hellooo
Margaritaville."
"It was the birthplace of all
Margaritaville stores and cafes
and it had just opened 11
months prior at Land's End
next door to a fish house.


nose and adding wheels to an
old wooden file cabinet that
belonged to Jimmy and when
that was completed I was exiled
to the mail order room. I really
didn't have a job description; it
was something different every-
day and I liked that. It wasn't
boring. And now it's 22 years
later and I have no regrets and
make no excuses for myself. At
the end of the day I take my
dog over to Fort Zachary Taylor
and have a ritualistic margarita.
It's been a lovely cruise!"

As to the unofficial anthems,
Woody Guthrie wrote "This
Land is Your Land" in 1940,
adapting the tune of a Baptist
hymn as a reaction to Irving
Berlin's "God Bless America,"
which he considered unrealistic.
The latter, written and stashed in


the composer's trunk while he
was a soldier at Camp Yaphank,
in 1918, was rescued by Kate
Smith 20 years later and, most
notably, sung by the members of
Congress on the United States
Capitol steps on Sept. 11, 2001.
"America the Beautiful" was
written by Wellesley English
professor Katharine Lee Bates in
1882 while on a trip, put to the
tune of the 1882 Baptist hymn
"Matema," composed by Samuel
A. Ward, and became popular
around 1910.

Barks talks about how words, images combine in poetry


BARKS / From 5

tion and colloquial speech than
the rhyming speech of his ver-
sion, which sometimes have up
to six rhyming patterns in his
language and would end up
sounding like limericks (translat-
ed exactly)... There once was a
girl from Nantucket...(laughs).
L'Attitudes: Can we antici-
pate any new work of your own
coming out soon? -
Barks: The University of
Georgia has asked to see a col-
lection of my poetry, a new and
selected. I'm going through a
book right now called "Tent
Making" and just seeing what I
want to offer.
L'Attitudes: How often do
you work?
Barks: I usually try to get a
couple hours a day working on
something that's taking form in
my mind and I don't much want
to talk about them. It goes into
the writing work. I always have
something like that going, some-
thing that inspires me. It gener-
ates energy and language. And
so I sort of live for that, those
ideas that may or may not work
out.
I remember the first big


image I wanted to explore. It
was the image of floating in a
river with your ears back under
water and your eyes out of
water, and for some reason that
image of listening to an under-
water world and watching an out
of water world, that was the way
it felt to be me, both in and out,
Maybe kind of a dream state and
an awake state where you can
hear further than you can see. So
I grew up right next to the
Tennessee River on a cliff in
Chattanooga. It was the first and
most beautiful thing I knew, and
still is, especially the curve of
the river as it went by.
My father was headmaster of
a boarding school, Baylor. I
grew up there and it gave me my
grandiosity. We had every meal
with 400 people, and when I had
a birthday, I would stand up on a
chair and everyone would sing
happy birthday to me. I had a
kingly sense of self. This is all
mine, I thought, so I couldn't be
discouraged. And I still have
that;
You have to be cocky to
become a writer. To just to put it
out there is sort of brave and
ridiculous. But I don't mind. It
seems appropriate. Someone's
got to do it grandiosity is


Spring Giddiness
Today, hke ever other daN, we wake up empty
and frightened. Don't open the door to the study
and begin reading. Take dox n a musical instrument.
Let the beauty we love be what we do.
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.
The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don't go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don't go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the tw o worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don't go back to sleep.
I would love to kiss you.
The price of kissing is your life.
Now my loving is running to\iard my life shouting,
What a bargain, let's buy it.
Daylight, full of small dancing particles
and the one great turning, our souls
are dancing with you. without feet, they dance.
Can you see them when I whisper in your ear?
All day and night, music,
a quiet, bright
reedsong. If it
fades, we fade.


--Rumi, translated by Coleman Barks


underrated. It's an important
virtue (laughs).
L'Attitudes: In your words,
what's the difference between a
poet and a writer?
Barks: If you're sitting on an
airplane and they ask you what
you do and you say. "I'm a
poet," then they try to change


I


wwwN\.kwnahs.orcr


seats. If you say you're a writer,
then they're more interested. The
writer is the more acceptable
thing to be in this culture. A poet
is just an embarrassing thing to
be. That profession went out
some time ago.
We've lost what poetry is for,
which is to make our lives more


vital, more alive. There's a life-
giving quality in poetry that
we've forgotten how to use... to
make us more alert, deeper in
our love....
I think that's part of what's
making Rumi so well read now...
a kind of truth that were being
reminded of, and a kind of joy

The Dockside's calendar of
events is going to require every-
one's close attention. Launching
the new era with a recent Grand
Reopening Weekend Bash,
Lance vows to continue his
pub's partying tradition with
more pig roasts, charity
fundraisers, holiday events, cos-
tume parties, dinghy races, and
full-moon celebrations, complete
with specialty drinks and chef's
specials that make you wonder
how a kitchen the size of a boat
galley can turn out food that
tastes so good.

FOR 2007

PUBLIC CENTER MARATHON


That includes pasta on
Tuesday, prime rib on
Wednesday and Saturdays, a
bucket o' clams on Thursdays,
and fish and chips on Fridays.
Lance Becker is planning to
revamp the dock, moving the
kitchen to the other end where
more space is available, and
relocating the stage and dance
floor back to where the kitchen
was. He also wants to expand
the dock and add a second story
deck for more seating and a
great view of harbor sunsets.
Regular entertainers like Joe
Mama, Rocketman and Dan
Sullivan are back, and Charlie
Miller's meet-and-greet Monday
night get-togethers will continue
as a form of covered-dish supper
for neighborhood landlubbers
and harbor boaters.
The new sign facing the har-
bor proclaims "Boaters
Welcome," and the dinghy dock
is back open for business. Bikers
are welcome on Thursday
nights, with entertainment pro-
vided by local bikemaster Joe
Mama. On Friday nights, rock
and rollers can groove to John
Bartus, "Crazy" Dave Howell
and Glenn Faast, featuring
favorites by Pink Floyd and oth-
ers. Saturday nights will spot-
light a variety of local musi-
cians, and the Sunday Jams will
continue as a Keys mega-tradi-
tion.

Nationally known
festival began
42 years ago

T he 42nd annual Old Island
Days Art Festival, Feb. 24
and 25, will be held on
Whitehead Street between
Greene and Caroline streets in
Key West.
One hundred exhibitors will
set up canopies and displays to
show off their artwork in two
dimensional and sculptural medi-
ums. Watercolors, oils, pastels,
acrylics and photos in styles
ranging from contemporary to
"tropical funk," will be displayed
in old town. Sculpture will
include a mix of pieces from
bronze to precious stone and
wood, and wall hangings from
natural materials and metal.
The festival has a long histo-
ry as part of Key West's art
scene. In the early 1960s the
members of the Key West Art -
Center had been selling pieces at
the flea.market that was held at
Higgs Beach. The members had
just taken on the project of
restoring the building at 301
Front St., current home to the
Key West Art Center, and need-
ed to do some major fundraising,
so they created the "Sidewalk
Show" and displayed their art-
work on the hurricane fence that
was then in front of the Customs
House.
This show continued for
some years, growing to take up
the entire square and into what is
now the Truman Annex. In
1975, the show went national
and artists from all over the
country juried to get into the


Key West Art Show. The show
has rated as one of the 200 top
shows in the country and is still
a favorite with artists and
tourists to view both national
and local art.
"Retired director Florence
Recher is chiefly responsible for
the current success of the show,"
said new director Lois Songer.
"Florence has been involved in
this show since the '60s when
she was a new member at the
Key West Art Center."
Songer and her co-director
Martha dePoo have assisted for
two years and this year took
over after Recher moved to
mainland Florida.
Next weekend's show runs
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.

OUTRAGEOUS MEMORIES: With a variety of local
musicians, including one carrying a multicolored tuba, a
New Orleans-style funeral parade was held for Key West
artist Captain Outrageous (above) Tuesday night along the
streets of Old Town. The parade included Outrageous'
wildly decorated car and a hearse. One of the tunes
played was an upbeat version of 'Down by the Riverside'
and the marchers and onlookers sang along, smiling while
tears welled in their eyes; The parade ended at the Emma
Street VFW where doves were released. Everyone agreed
another part of Key West was gone. -Dick Wagner
