Key Wester killed in Iraq


Mclnnis was
security officer
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Michael Mclnnis' entry into
this world was an auspicious one.
He was bor in a tiny village
in Indonesia, a seven hours' drive
from the nearest medical facility.


"After his birth, I carried him
outside when about 200 people
stood with lighted torches," his
father Jim McInnis remembered
Friday. "They formed a path, and
as I walked through, each of them
reached out to touch him."
McInnis was killed this week
in Iraq, serving as a security offi-
cer with a private contracting


firm.
The 32-year-old former U.S.
Navy SEAL lived with his family
in Key West before heading to
Iraq. According to his father, he
had survived other attacks of
enemy improvised explosive
devices; it was an IED, or impro-
vised explosive device, attack
that took his life.

According to the most recent
financial reports, Marathon City
Council candidate Don Vasil
leads the six candidates- with
$5,200 in campaign contributions
heading into the March 13 elec-
tion.
However, Vasil's total
includes a $2,500 personal loan.
Candidates can loan themselves
as much money as they want dur-
ing a campaign, while outside
contributions cannot exceed
$500.
One recent contribution to
Vasil was a $100 check from
Re/Max Key to the Keys Real
Estate in Marathon. Key to the
Keys also donated $100 to.candi-
dates Mike Cinque and John
Bartus.
Vasil also lists contributions
from Louisiana resident Herbert
Gautreaux, $200; and Marathon
residents Peter and Betsy Snow,
$350 each.
Vasil has spent $3,751 in
expenditures, which must bal-
ance out contributions by the end
of a campaign. Most of the
expenses are for advertising in
local newspapers, however, Vasil
paid back $1,700 worth of loans
by his wife, Virginia.
Bartus has also repaid funds in
the form of a $250 donation from
fellow candidate Jeff Pinkus, a
current councilman. However,
Bartus lists a $100 donation from


The Marathon City
Council candidates in their
own words, pages 8 and 9.


Cindy Durkin and her husband,
Mayor Chris Bull.
Marathon mortgage broker
Josh Mothner donated $250, and
Marathon residents Richard and
Thea Ramsay donated $200.
Islamorada resident Pam Martin
donated $30, and Arlene Keeney
of Ponce Inlet donated $50.
Bartus had previous donations
from Islamorada-based Sapodilla
Holdings, -$500; Sombrero
Marina and Dockside Lounge,
$500; Marathon resident Roy
McAdams, $100; and Marathon
resident Gerald Bessemer, $100.
Cinque has the second-highest
reported contributions with
$4,700, which includes $2,000 in
personal loans.
'Recent contributions include
$500 donations from Marathon
Realtor Bettye Chaplin and hus-
band James, Marathon landscap-
er Luis Gonzalez, Marathon Auto
and Air, and Keys Fisheries.
Cinque also received $300
from Inflatable Boats of the Keys
and $200 from Herbert
Gautreaux. Marathon resident
Tobe Creed gave $100.
Pinkus lists $3,150 in total
contributions, including $1,000
in personal loans and $50 in in-
kind printing services from him-


self and $100 in in-kind postage
from Pinkus Construction.
Pinkus received $500 from
Marathon residents Greg
Coldiron and Jackie Gonzalez.
Phillip Arena of Parkland in
Broward County gave $500 and
Living Easy Mobile Home Sales
of Homestead donated $500.
Candidate Joan "Bicycle
Joanie" Nelson did not report any
new contributions after a previ-
ously reported $25 personal loan.
Candidate Marjie Mearns,
current vice mayor, also did not
report any contributions after a
previously reported $1,000 per-
sonal loan.
This is the first Marathon City
Council election where candi-
dates don't run against each other
for specific district seats, but
rather all run for the same open
two seats. Terms are for two
years.
Cinque, Vasil, Mearns and
Nelson all said they partially or
wholly support the new at-large
election system, which voters
approved in referendum.
Pinkus and Bartus openly
opposed the new system due to
the possibility of a candidate
being elected without a majority
vote of 50 percent plus one vote.
Early voting runs from
Tuesday to March 9 at the
Monroe County Supervisor of
Elections Office on 63rd Street.
Voting hours are from 8:30 a.m.
to 4:30 p.m., and voting requires
a valid photo I.D.


Hendrick taken into custody


HENDRICK / From 1

most respected land-use lawyers
in Monroe County, stood stoical-
ly as the verdict was read.
He immediately was remand-
ed, with U.S. marshals making
him empty his pockets and
remove his tie before being
escorted out of the courtroom.
Highsmith ordered Hendrick to be
taken to a federal detention center
in Miami as soon as possible.
The case stems from a lengthy
FBI investigation that discovered
a $29,000 bribe paid in 1997 tc
then-Monroe County Mayor
John. L "Jack London" for his
influence in getting a stalled 79-
room hotel project called Hall's
Resort approved by the County
Commission.
Political consultant Randal
Hilliard, who paid the bribe aftei
collecting $82,500 in fees from
developer Marvin Rappaport, tes
tified with immunity tha
Hendrick and London orchestra
ed the bribery scheme.


Hilliard also testified that
Hendrick helped coordinate
untrue "legitimate business"
explanations for the payment
between himself and London.
Hendrick received no money
in the deal. Prosecutor Brenda
Morris argued in closing state-
ments that Hendrick's motive
was power and to protect his
major client, developer Pritamn
Singh, "who is his cash cow."
The government's key witness
was expected to be London, who
pleaded guilty to tax evasion for
not reporting the $29,000. He
also was charged with three
counts of lying to. federal prose-
cutors, but was given immunity
-for those charges in exchange for
Shis testimony against Hendrick
his former best friend for near-
ly three decades.
I But London died suddenly in
r November. That left Hilliard,
Swho went by the nickname "The
- Prince of Darkness," as a key
t witness.
S The defense, led by Miami-
Sbased. lawyer Ed Shohat, ham-


mered at the credibility of
Hilliard, who also had been a
good friend of Hendrick.
Hilliard recorded phone con-
servations and wore a wire to
record in-person conversations
with Hendrick at a Key West out-
door bar, Hendrick's home and
Singh's 50th birthday party in
Vermont.
In one of his most self-incrim-
inating statements, Hendrick told
Hilliard: "I'm sure no one would
counsel me to sit here and talk
with you because it would be
considered witness tampering."
Shohat portrayed Hendrick as
simply a good friend who was
trying to help his friends, who
both had also been clients.
"This is a real tragedy," said
Shirley Freeman, who was coun-
ty mayor in 1995 when Hendrick
was hired. "Jimmy is absolutely
brilliant and highly, highly
skilled. Unfortunately, though,
sometimes power does corrupt.
At least he won't be around for
awhile, pushing bad develop-
ment."

Dive-shop worker


gets probation


Ryan pleads out
in case stemming
from dive death
Keynoter Staff

A Key Largo dive-shop
employee was placed on proba-
tion for six months after reaching
a plea agreement with the
Monroe County State Attorney's
Office.
Michael Ryan, 53, originally
was charged with two misde-
meanor counts of obstructing a
law officer without violence and
one felony of tampering with evi-
dence.
The charges were filed Jan. 13
as Sheriff's Office deputies
investigated a dive accident that
eventually claimed the life of
Kendra Conrad Motter, 40, of
Canton, Ohio.
Deputies said Ryan ignored
orders to stop washing gear that
Motter had used, and appeared to
be tampering with a dive comput-


er.
Horizon Divers owner Dan
Dawson said later that Ryan was
recording information from the
computer for shop records, and
that the computer's readings
could not be altered or erased.
Prosecutors took no action to
pursue one count of obstruction,
effectively dropping that charge.
Ryan pleaded to the second
count of obstruction, for which
the six-month probation sentence
was imposed. If he completes the

MclNNIS / From I

"He was always in the thick of
it," Jim McInnis said Friday, just
a day after hearing the news his
son had been killed. "He always
did the hard runs. He volunteered
for the toughest jobs: Fallujah,
the airport road. He lived an
adventurous life. He was skydiv-
ing by the time he was 16."
McInnis and his father trav-
eled extensively for the first 13
years of his life. Though Jim
McInnis continued-to travel, he
says he settled his son down in
Washington, where the boy
attended high school. During his
years in the Pacific Northwest,
Michael McInnis became as a
colonel in the Civil Air Patrol and
served as a page in the state's
senate.
"He tried college," Jim
McInnis said, "but it wasn't for
him. He became a Navy Seal."
Michael McInnis lived in Key
West for a number of years
before going to work in the pri-
vate sector, telling his family the
city was the only place he'd want
to live, except, perhaps, Brazil.
"He spoke Portuguese,
Spanish, a number of languages,"
said his father, who works for the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
S"In' fact, he used to play in


Arabic."
The McInnis family, original-
ly hailing from Texas, has a long
history of serving its country.
"My great-granddad fought
against Geronimo in Texas," Jim
Mclnnis said. "Our family has a
long 'history of working for the
'country doing the jobs people
don't want to hear about."
Michael McInnis knew at an
early age that he wanted to con-
tinue the tradition, deciding that
he wanted to be a Navy Seal at an
age most kids are still dreaming
of becoming a fireman.
"No matter how- noble the
cause," his father said, "it's still
hard. Michael had a saying:
Death is not tragic if you die
doing what you love. He told me
to remember that."
Michael McInnis is survived
by a 9-year-old daughter. Her
grandmother refers -to her as "a
daddy-clone," Jim McInnis said.
"She even walks like him," he
said.
He is also survived by Jim's
wife Alma McInnis, two sisters
and a brother.
The family is planning a small
memorial service for family and
friends, though the date has not
been set.
Arrangements are being made
by Castillo and Thurston in Key
West.

MANAGER / From I

Word, reached Friday, said he
was surprised by the turn of
events, adding, "I took what was
said last night to heart and it will
be a factor in my decision mak-
ing."
What Word heard was
Reckwerdt's public pronounce-
ment that since Word submitted
his resignation in. January, the
city manager has "become a
stronger manager. I support you
staying. I think you're doing a
good job."
Word said he planned to meet
with individual., council mem-
bers on Friday and again next
week. Regardless of the deci-
sion, Word said he will be going
to Treasure Island on
Wednesday, since he made that
commitment before Thursday's
surprise developments.
Treasure Island city commis-
sioners could announce their
decision as early as Thursday.
Islamorada Mayor Chris
Sante has requested an emer-
gency meeting at 5:30 p.m.
Monday to discuss the situation.
Word resigned less than a
month ago after council critics
voiced their dissatisfaction with
the manager's management
style, calling it ineffectual. And
they criticized Word for contin-
ued problems plaguing
Plantation Key Colony's $20-
million-plus sewer system.
"There has been some dam-
age done and my perception was
at the time of my resignation
was that I had a lack of effec-
tiveness in dealing with the
council. I now need to get a feel
if it's been resolved," Word said
Friday.
Boerner said Word's per-
formancp has improved marked-
ly. "We've started to gel, We've
seen some changes. I'd like to
see you stay on awhile."
Both Boerer and Reckwerdt
said they wanted Word to with-
draw his resignation and be
reevaluated in April.
Word is one of four candi-
dates for the Treasure Island job.
Word, 56, has an annual
salary as Islamorada village
manager of $147,000 plus bene-
fits. The Treasure Island city
manager job is listed as "starting
at $98,000. Outgoing city man-
ager, Ralph Stone makes
$106,362, a $4,800 car
allowance, four weeks vacation
and has retirement and health
benefits, Jensen said.

Keys Opinion


Southernmost statues

getting a fair shake

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.
That seems to be the lesson taught by the Key West City
Commission on the subject of public sculpture and battling
over sidewalk space in high tourist traffic areas of town.
After being turned down twice, the donated statues by artist
Seward Johnson will get a 60-day trial at the Southernmost
Point.
Commissioner Dan Kolhage revived the donation offer after
it died in two earlier tries for commission approval.
The seven life-size statutes will occupy space near the buoy
that draws thousands of tourists each year.
At this week's commission meeting, Assistant City Manager
John Jones repeated his reservations about safety issues, given
the volume of traffic on Whitehead at South streets.
That was the same issue Commissioner Jose Menendez
raised in opposition.
One of the other opponents from previous meetings;
Commissioner Harry Bethel, wasn't at Wednesday's meeting
to cast his vote. Earlier, he said "it's not a question whether we
want it; it's a question of the location."
With Bethel and Commissioner Mark Rossi both absent,
Menendez was the lone "no" vote on this third time around and
it passed 4-1, but only for a 60-day trial period.
This will allow the city to assess impact on traffic. And who
knows, it may demonstrate that culture can compete with
happy hour as a major tourism draw.
Marathon election faces test

As Election Day looms in Marathon, voters have an unprece-
dented chance to send a signal.
This will be the first round since the city's founding with an
at-large election. Six candidates are running to fill two seats.
Three of the candidates are incumbents or recently left the
council. Three hope to win their first election after previous
tries for office.
At-large elections should focus the electorate on issues,
rather than personalities. There is less temptation to vote
"against" a candidate as can happen in a two-way, seat-specif-
ic contest.
And it empowers voters in ways that some previous seat-spe-
cific matchups blunted.
Because issues are so important, we invite voters to join in
two public forums where they can hear all six candidates speak
to what's important. The first of these comes Monday at the
Marathon Government Center when the Greater Marathon
Chamber hosts a question and answer session from 6 to 9 p.m.
The second opportunity will be Wednesday, also at the
Marathon Government Center, with a media panel and forum
hosted by the Keynoter. Live television coverage via Comcast
Cable Channel 76 airs from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
In addition, the Keynoter posed questions to all six and you'll
find their responses in today's Keynoter on pages 8 and 9.

Wilma canal cleanup hit contractor snag


EDITOR:
This is to clarify information provided by Mr.
John Larkin in a letter to the editor Feb. 14 con-
cerning canal cleanup efforts after Hurricane
Wilma.
As a result of a broad storm surge, significant
debris was swept into nearby canals and water
bodies as Wilma passed the Keys Oct. 24, 2005.
In a protracted but cooperative process,
Monroe County attempted to secure Federal.
Emergency Management Agency funding to
complete a comprehensive sweep of affected
canals. The county's desire was to clean all
affected canals from front to back and top to
bottom of any debris that would inhibit safe nav-
igation and that could further deteriorate water
quality.
Negotiations surrounded funding the costs of
finding debris vs. the costs of removing and dis-
posing of debris. Ultimately, and put very sim-
ply, we could not come to terms for a complete
clean-sweep approach. There was a significant
cost to our contractors in the effort of finding
debris that FEMA could not pay for. Frankly and
rightly, our contractors wanted payment for their
effort to find debris.
There was an initial effort to sweep canals of
debris as noted by Mr. Larkin in his letter, start-
ing in Key West's Riviera Canal system. The
effort was so with fraught arguments about how
payment would be calculated that as project
manager for the county, I stopped the effort to


reconsider our options.
We began to look for another approach to
getting the job done, which would be acceptable
to FEMA. In that effort, County Administrator
Tom Willi was instrumental in bringing the dis-
cussion to the next level, otherwise known as
going up the chain of command. Unfortunately
this didn't succeed, either. However, Tom's
effort was crucial and helpful to my efforts to
carry out the canal cleanup project.
Ultimately, our efforts succeeded in obtaining
a little less than $50,000 to complete debris
cleanup in approximately 210 specifically
defined locations. The effort to obtain these
funds was completed in November and
December 2006. Because of the far-reduced
project scope compared to the originally pro-
posed effort, we are bidding the project differ-
ently and expect to have the cleanup effort
underway by this March and April.
The public should also understand that
throughout this process, FEMA has been an ally
and extremely helpful. Without FEMA, the
county could not have accomplished an effort
(vessel and trap cleanup) that really has never
happened at the magnitude achieved here or
anywhere else in the state. We are grateful to
FEMA for all of its assistance, and County
Administrator Willi was an asset to the county
and the project in the effort.

Low-income disabled deserve utility discounts


EDITOR:
I have the following comments about pro-
posed changes to Keys Energy Services'
enabling legislation:
First, Section 13, Purchasing:
13.1 Construction Projects: The utility
seeks authority to enter into construction con-
tracts for labor only, materials only, and labor
and materials. The flexibility, which the utility
seeks in this regard, makes good business
sense. It might enable the utility to save
money.
I continue to disagree with the utility's
request to remove language in the act requiring
performance bonds. A possible exception
might be contracts for materials only. If the
materials are ordered well in advance of when
they will be needed, then this might work pro-
vided the public benefits from lower costs. If.
the utility is permitted to waive bonds, then
the board should be required to adopt a written
policy and procedure relating thereto.
The utility seeks authority to award con-
tracts to the best responsible bidder in addition
to awarding contracts to the lowest cost bidder.
I do not see the justification for this with
respect to construction contracts. I request that
the change not be made.
13.3 All Other Purchases: The utility
seeks authority to accept the best bid in addi-
tion to the lowest bid. Keys Energy Services'
Lynne Tejeda gave me an example of when a
best bid would be accepted instead of the low-
est cost bid. Based upon her example, I agree
that this authority should be granted. It makes
good business sense and the public could ben-
efit. However, I suggest the following be
required:
A compelling reason in order to accept a
best bid instead of a lowest cost bid. The rea-
son should be a part of the public record.


The difference between the best bid and
lowest cost bid should be no more than 10 per-
cent.
The Utility Board should be required to
adopt a written policy and procedure relating
thereto.
And Section 11: 11.5 Senior
Citizen/Disabled Veteran Discount:
I have not discussed this item with anyone
before now. As I am writing this, I took anoth-
er look and feel that there is an injustice.
I believe that low-income residential cus-
tomers receiving Social Security disability
benefits and Supplemental Security Income
should also be eligible for the discount. The
low-income disabled, are the less fortunate
among us. Electricity is a necessity and we
should help them out.

Maxie alive and well thanks to Fishermen's


EDITOR:
I recently had major surgery at
Fishermen's hospital. I have nothing
but praise for the way I was treated,
from check-in to follow-up. It was a
first-class experience with world-
class care.
But that is not why I am writing. I
want to take a moment to acknowl-
edge Fishermen's Hospital for some-
thing very special its staff did last
week.
I am a doctor, but unlike the doc-
tors at Fishermen's Hospital, my
patients aren't human they are
pets. Nonetheless, they are still fami-
ly members and when one falls ill,
the emotional anguish, stress and
reality of the event can be just as
traumatic as if the illness were to
occur in a child, wife, parent or sig-
nificant other.
Our veterinary hospital recently
had a patient with a serious, rare
blood disorder. After three blood
transfusions, Maxie was still in crisis.
Her red-blood-cell value was less
than 10 percent, with normal being
greater than 37 percent. All tradition-


al and advanced medications were
failing. In spite of all of our efforts,
Maxie was dying.
Maxie's only hope was an uncom-
mon drug called Human IgG not
only extremely difficult to find, but
also very expensive. In many cases, if
a human hospital has it, it won't sell
it, especially for an animal patient.
Out of desperation, we called
Fishermen's Hospital's pharmacy.
Within an hour, we had the IgG.
Within two hours, the medication was
coursing through Maxie's veins.
Within 12 hours, Maxie's blood value
had increased to 12 percent. Now,
approximately five days later, her
red-blood-cell value is over 26 per-
cent and she is home and acting like a
puppy again.
To everybody at Fishermen's
Hospital, thank you for all you do
here in the Keys. Most importantly,
thank you for helping the people, but
also the dolphins, the whales, the sea
turtles and, now, Maxie.

Help sought but not coming


EDITOR:
Tuesday afternoon, there were
cops at my house (owned by my
brother, Chris Hayes) knocking on
my door.
I answered the door and asked
what's going on. They told me I got
15 minutes to get my stuff out. I
asked why, and they said because it
was unsafe. I said, well, I'm not the
type to steal, but putting me out on
the street, what else am I supposed to
do? I'm a very homeless person right
now.


And I've been trying to get help. I
got people trying to help me, and it's
not working out right now as I
understand.
I always had a place to lay my
head for 20 years I lived in that
home. Now I'm in the street, at the
closing of this.
The people have no heart for peo-
ple, they just want to take the poor
people's land, steal it from us, how-
ever they can do it.

Company has good 'pedigree'


EDITOR:
I would like to thank all the
Florida Keys animal shelters for their
wonderful job of taking care of pets
who need homes.
As I am sure many other dog
lovers like myself have been touched
by the new Pedigree commercials, I
went to their Web site to see if they
really do help the local shelters out
like they say they do. I was so
impressed that I wanted to pass the


information on to others because if
you donate a bag of dog food
through their Web site, they will
match that donation with another
bag.

Stout's staff deserves smooches


EDITOR:
The Grace Jones Daycare would
like to thank Suzy Curry at Stout's
Restaurant for her extreme generosi-
ty in hosting a Valentine's Day
fundraiser for our center. Along with
all the festivities including a raffle,
smooch booths and beautiful roses,
Suzy donated her proceeds from
breakfast and lunch that day.
Altogether, we were very happy
recipients of almost $6,000.
The community participation was


wonderful as well as everyone who
helped put this event together such as
the Grace Jonesi oard, withmiany
others involved as well.
I would also like to thank the staff
at Stout's for working so hard and
serving such delicious meals that
were enjoyed by a lot of people that

Commission meetings

provide comedy

EDITOR:
I am appalled at the way in which
Monroe County conducts itself. Now that
I have been attending meetings and
watching for the outcomes of relevant sit-
uations, I have noticed this: The new
mayor treats the meetings like a comedy
review, but demands respect and the
County Administrator Tom Willi fiasco
turned into nothing.
I wonder still, what is the evacuation
time on the books in Tallahassee? I am
the owner of a beautiful motorhome in
Lucky's Landing, newly rebuilt after
Hurricane Wilma, and a member of a
very elite class called the workforce. I am
soon to leave because the Florida statutes
that once protected me have now been
manipulated to grease the palms of the
county and the developers.
In closing, allow me to say that I hope
the future brings good sights from the
bridges; methinks the tourists at some
point will see only condos. I fear there
will be no one to work here once the
Tourist Development Council gets them
all here, but I will be long gone and can
only say good riddance.

Mayoral apology needed
EDITOR:
Generalissimo Mario Di Gennaro
needs to learn that in a democracy,
respect is earned, not a birthright or con-
ferred by an election process fluke.
Monroe County has enough problems
without having to deal with the ego of a
petty dictator. All attendees of a County
Commission meeting should give a
thumbs down every time he opens his
mouth; a silent boo, if you will.
I call for his public apology and resig-
nation as a county commissioner.

Since becoming county mayor in
November, Mario Di Gennaro has
generated controversy over how the
public is treated.

Oversight required
EDITOR:
Do we need the attorney general or
state intervention to stop the abusive prac-
tices of the County Commission? It had a
taxpaying citizen removed for giving the
thumbs-down gesture but tacitly allowed
others, including one's family member, to
wear yellow shirts proclaiming their sup-
port for a workshop issue.
I hope some outside agency takes up
our cause because intimidation, threats of
arrest and expulsions are no way to run
our beloved Keys.
In retrospect, and I apologize for my
crudeness, but maybe the wrong finger
was gestured.

In the past. the council has been accused of favoring developers and their projects over residents and their concerns. Is this characterization accurate? If
not, why? If so, name three specific things you would do to change it.


"The council's top priority is serving our residents. We
must overhaul the permitting process to make it as user-
friendly as possible; ensure developers pay their fair
share of impact fees; and err on the side of residents'
interests when possible."


"Yes, to a degree.
"Increase impact fees for major developments."
"Shorten the timeframe for developers to complete
their promises."
"Implement and insist on a policy for a user-friend-
ly building and planning department geared toward the
residents of the city."


"If an owner chooses to redevelop a property and it is
done within all the regulations and restrictions, the coun-
cil has to allow the project to continue. The fact that
investors have come to town with large bank accounts is
not surprising. They are searching for investments to
make their money grow and they know that people want
to be in a warm climate and have the finances to do just
that."


The issue of where to site a city hall has been unresolved since the city Incorporated seven years ago. With each delay, costs go up. Name your top plan
for city hall, and why.


"My'top plan for city hall is the one that will cost the
least, both short- and-long-term. The council should try
and negotiate a price for our current building, and inves-
tigate the real costs of purchasing the county government
center."


"No new construction. Use existing facilities such as
the current location and/or county government center. We
need to consider all existing structures, and move for-
ward with a quick decision to avoid future cost increas-
es."


"If we are successful in securing the government cen-
ter from Monroe County at no charge, that would seem to
be the best option. However, the maintenance costs that
were provided are very high. We are looking into other
options and will choose the one that gives us the space we
need for the best price."


Where should the brunt of the cost for constructing sewers lie, equally shared by each property owner, or borne more by businesses? And why?


"Residents and businesses will pay according to actu-
al hookup costs and number of [equivalent dwelling
units] assessed. The state and federal governments, how-
ever, must remember their responsibility. I have more
lobbying experience in Tallahassee and Washington and
will use that to help keep local costs down."


"It must be shared equally. We cannot afford to lose
any more residents or businesses. The state must be
responsible for the majority of the costs for their sewer
mandate. State and federal grants and funding must be
obtained before we proceed."


"It is only fair to spread the cost of the sewers equally
among the consumers. I don't think a business should be
charged any more than a residence unless it is a large
business with a high water usage."


Affordable housing remains a priority, yet the City Council seems to have a split personality on this. On one side, the council supports projects like the one
planned for 104th Street. On the other, it strips density bonuses for some neighborhoods due to NIMBYism. Explain the consistency, or lack thereof.


"Our comprehensive plan requires that new develop-
ment must comply with the community character of the
surrounding neighborhood. The city must work diligent-
ly to find the most appropriate sites, and our residents
must realize that we're neighbors, all in this together."


"It is very consistent with the council's inability to
make a decision without bringing politics into it. Their
decisions relating to affordable housing have been politi-
cal posturing at its worst,"


"Density bonuses will only work in areas where the
land values are not high. Neighborhoods such as Coco
Plum, which has large lots that are bringing very high
prices, are not conducive to building homes which are
sold for moderate prices and deed-restricted to stay low."


Last year demonstrated a revolt by taxpayers upset over city spending and taxing. Name three areas where city spending can/should be reduced.


"Legal and consultant fees should be reduced how
that work on our LDRs is complete.
"Council should re-prioritize capital projects and-
get the biggest bang for the buck on city hall."
"Growing marina revenues will continue tr offset
other costs."


"Duplicate spending. Example: The city Building
Department employees are duplicating the work of paid
contracted services."
"Legal expenses. Example: The city should not be
paying legal fees to defend state and federal policies."
"Lack of clear direction by the City Council, caus-
ing repeat work and expense. Example: Six years to com-
plete the comprehensive plan and land development reg-
ulations, causing consulting and legal fees to skyrocket."


"The taxes on many properties which are homestead-
ed were lower in 2006 than they were in 2005. We can-
not control the county portion of our taxes and we are
always reviewing our city departments and making cuts
where we can."


Many say the city has done nothing for municipal beautification. Is this an issue and, If so. name three specific things you would do to tackle the "ugly" label.


"Work with [the Department of Transportation] on
beautification/xeriscaping of U.S. 1 corridor."
.* "Have Unsafe Structures Board condemn aban-
doned and derelict properties that have sat in ruins for
years."
"Encourage beautification of businesses through
adopted design standards and reduced permit fees."


"Landscape the U.S. 1 corridor (there are state
funds available that have not been utilized)."
"Clean the city rights of way and repair the city
roads."
"Implement a program to clean and remove trash
and garbage from the vacant lots and properties through-
out our town."


"As properties are developed, they must include high-
way beautification. Existing highway properties could be
given incentives but not at taxpayers' expense."

In the past, the council has been accused of favoring developers and their projects over residents and their concerns. Is this characterization accurate? If
not, why? If so, name three specific things you would do to change it.


"If the council had.served residents first rather than
rushing to favor developers, we Davids wouldn't be stuck
facing exodus. No development agreements or land-use
changes without impact fees. Institute a tax specific to
corporations that negatively impact affordable housing
with funds earmarked to saving existing affordable hous-
ing via appropriate sewage assistance."


"No. Council and staff have worked well with devel-
opers, local businesses and residents. I always listen dili-
gently to residents' concerns and help work out the best
solutions to issues. I encourage management to bring bor-
derline issues to council for interpretation."


"Council's desire to increase the tax base has given
developers a free reign of our lands at the expense of our
small businesses and residents...
"Access to City Hall must be equal to all (a real per-
son should answer each call).
"Small-business requests must have top priority to
self-determine their future success."
"Assist residents as expeditiously as possible (time
is money for everyone)."


The issue of where to site a city hall has been unresolved since the city incorporated seven-years ago. With each delay, costs go up. Name your top plan
for city hall, and why.


"Incorporators promised a small, friendly town hall,
not a Taj Mahal. Now that county departments are vacat-
ing their Marathon offices, taking over empty set-up
spaces at the county government complex seems the most
efficient, cost-effective, sensible choice. Negotiate a deal
that's cheaper than rent we're presently paying."


"I am spearheading the effort to acquire the Marathon
Government Center [from the county]. It will dramatical-
ly keep the cost down and should be ready for occupan-
cy in about a year. A new city hall would be three years
in the making."


"If the city can acquire the existing government center
from Monroe County for less than what we are spending
now, let's go for it. If not, plans for a new city hall should
be tabled until economic conditions warrant this huge
expenditure."


Where should the brunt of the cost for constructing sewers lie, equally shared by each property owner, or borne more by businesses? And why?


"Brunt of sewage costs to be borne by developers in
exchange for the privilege of impacting Marathon, and by
the state mandators and federal Big Brother. What if
Tallahassee puts a hold on building permits? We're
already overbuilt. Why should a crown jewel capitulate
to unfunded mandates?"


"Cost should be equally shared by all property own-
ers. Little Venice proved the best way to shut down a
viable business is to burden it with an unequal share.
Separating treatment plant and sewer line costs appears to
be most equitable."


"The brunt of the cost must lie in state and/or federal
funds. Our small businesses and residents simply cannot
afford it. Construction should only proceed as funds are
distributed from the agencies that mandated it."


Affordable housing remains a priority, yet the City Council seems to have a split personality on this. On one side, the council supports projects like the one
planned for 104th Street. On the other, it strips density bonuses for some neighborhoods due to NIMBYism. Explain the consistency, or lack thereof.


"Protect what's left of so-called affordable housing via
a special property appraisal and sewer breaks. Instead of
impacting existing neighborhoods with new NIMBY
density, require developers/corporations to have project-
ed workforce housing in place before they build one lux-
ury unit."


"The council has been consistent with affordable
housing and enforcing the policies of the comprehensive
plan. In areas where density was lowered, the properties
affected were waterfront. Waterfront properties are his-
torically not cost-effective for workforce housing."


"Council has never used its political will to facilitate
affordable housing in a timely manner. More important-
ly, where are the units promised by developers? Who is
to blame?"


Last year demonstrated a revolt by taxpayers upset over city spending and taxing. Name three areas where city spending can/should be reduced.


"Cut the bloomin' bureaucracy.
"Stop wasting money on studies by outsiders."
"Make smart deals with architects, contractors,
even Key Colony Beach re: fire protection that favor we
people, not corporations. Write contracts that don't trap
city government into overrides and change orders."


"Marathon has one of the lowest taxes due to the effi-
ciency of staff. Three ways to help reduce costs:
"Raise more revenue from non-resident user fees
where reasonable.
"Eliminate employee overtime.
"Employee hiring freeze."


+ "Reevaluate all city projects and proceed only with
those that are absolutely essential.
"Guarantee outside funding for the sewers.
"Work with our county officials to stop the over-
lapping of capital projects and services, so all county res-
idents and small businesses benefit.


Many say the city has done nothing for municipal beautification. Is this an issue and, if so, name three specific things you would do to tackle the "ugly" label.


"If a pop-and-mom business can afford to donate and
plant palm-tree lines fringing our airport and the Seven
Mile Bridge entrance, we can shame the developers to
chip in (not just a measly facade fronting their gated com-
pounds) and help beautify Marathon's Overseas Highway
corridor."


"This is an issue and it costs money to beautify.
Solutions:
"Create a committee to present ideas.
"Work with DOT to beautify U.S. 1.
"Require developers to plant and maintain right of
way adjacent to their properties."


"Enhancing the look of U.S. 1 will drastically improve
Marathon's economy.
"Work with the Department of Transportation to
beautify the U.S. 1 corridor."
"Require that all development agreements include a
landscape plan to accentuate the beauty of our city.
"Make sure that new or redeveloped structures
enhance the aesthetics of Overseas Highway."

Sandbar rules go to County


Party.spot
called an
'embarrassment'
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

The free-for-all party on the
Whale Harbor Channel Sand-
bar, which has recently gained
national attention, including on
television police reality shows,
may soon get toned down.
The five-member Isla-
morada Village Council unani-
mously approved an advisory
panel's recommendations that
will affect revelers on popular
party weekends at the sandbar.
The recommendations have the
support of the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office, the U.S. Coast
Guard and the state Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission, said Monroe
County Sheriff's Office Capt.


Joe Leiter, at a Feb. 22 Village
Council meeting.
On busy weekends, such as
the July 4 weekend, Memorial
Day and the Hospitality Expo
in May, the new rules would
ban boats longer than 26 feet
from anchoring on the sandbar
during peak times. Leiter said
boats this size tend to have
cabins that make it difficult to
see what's going on inside and
determining how many people
are onboard.
The panel-also recommend-
ed no more than three vessels
be allowed to raft together on
the sandbar. This will make it
easier for marine law enforce-
ment officers to maneuver
between vessels and control
situations without officers
leaving the safety of their ves-
sels, Leiter said.
The Near Shores Water
Citizens Support Committee


has been working on these rec-
ommendations for six years,
said member Bay Neal. The
kind of events on the sandbar
and the attention they receive.
lately have become somewhat
of an embarrassment to the
Upper Keys, Leiter said, and
have consumed too many law
enforcement resources.
Last year's Hospitality
Expo was the largest marine
law enforcement operation in
the Keys, Leiter said. "If you
had a cop on a boat, he was
probably in Whale Harbor
Channel," he said. This left
many other areas of the Keys
"unprotected and unpatrolled,"
said Leiter.
The sandbar is outside of
the Village of Islamorada's city
limits, so the recommendations
must be voted on by the
Monroe County Commission
before becoming law, Leiter
said.

More education,

er Thursday night to discuss th
e future of Florida's fish-
eries with officials from the Fl

vation Commission.
The FWC was there to gath-

rests.
While a few speakers touche
d on emotional topics such as t
he plight of working fisher-
men and the loss of marine and
wetlands habitat through gov-
ernmental corruption, FWC off
icials had favorable reactions t
o other issues such as compe-
tency tests for fishing licens-
es and an idea for marine "zon-
ing."
"There have been some area
s of consensus," said FWC Dir
ector of Marine Fisheries Mana
gement Mark Robson, who has
led five other similar meet-
ings across the state.
"One is, if you are going to
be a harvester or are going to u
se that fishery, you should have
to pay for that use."
Richard Grathwold of the M
marathon Guides Association sai
d rules that allow Florida resi-
dents to not need a fishing lice
nse to fish on the shoreline or o
ff piers should be addressed.
"We're losing a huge fund-
ing source," Grathwold said. "
And we've got people going th
ere fishing and they do not kno
w the rules. No regulations are
given to them."
Grathwold also said there ne
eds to be increases in prices for
lobster and snook endorse-
ments, as well as more. educa-
tion on the proper way to han-
dle and release fish such as sno
ok.


"People do feel that the min-
imum size limit [for fish] may
be counterproductive," Robson
said, "because of the high amo
unt of release mortality."
Chris Bergh, Florida Keys p
program director for The Nature
Conservancy, discussed prob-
lems caused by the overlap-
ping of different uses of the ma
rine resources, such as div-
ing, spearfishing, line fish-
ing and sightseeing tours.
Bergh said waters surround-
ing the Keys and even the rest
of Florida could be zoned for s
specific uses similar to how mu
nicipal governments create lan
d-use and zoning maps.
"All this boils down to is op
timization of the use of the wat
er," Bergh said.
Robson said he might include
e that idea in a new version of t
he visioning document.
"What you're talking about
has not been directly addressed
yet in this document," Robson
said. "That concept is some-
thing we haven't heard before.

Information from the meet-
ing and others around the state
will be included in a report this
spring to the full Conservation
Commission board.

No Flagler artifacts found


Historians say
debris on Stretch
old, not historic
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Material uncovered in the
reconstruction of U.S. 1 north
of Key Largo may be old, but
very little found appears to be
historic, said a local expert.
"I don't think anything found
so far comes from Flagler's rail-
road," said Bob Naumann.
"Some of this stuff may look
like it's from the railroad but
it's not."
As work crews dredge muck
and mangroves from along the
east side of the 18-Mile Stretch
between Florida City and Key
Largo, some timbers have been
recovered and stacked along the
roadway.
The timbers may resemble
wooden railroad ties that may
have been laid for the Florida
East Coast Railway line to Key
West that opened in 1913, but
they almost certainly come
from later projects, Naumann
said.
Most of them are probably
supports used for the highway
construction or the water
pipeline, he said.
The Overseas Highway was
built in the 1930s and '40s,
while the Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority water
pipeline was laid as a World
War II project to supply local
military bases.
Naumann, a longtime resi-
dent of the Upper Keys and
Homestead, is president of the
South Dade Marina, located
near the Monroe County line
along the Stretch.
He also serves on the board
of directors for the Pioneer
Home Museum Association in
Florida City.
"When it comes to Henry
Flagler's railroad, we rely on
Bob Naumann," said Jerry
Wilkinson, president and
founder of the Historical
Preservation Society of the
Upper Keys.
"The railroad is one of my
favorite subjects Naumann
said. "I've been here 30 years,
Sand when you're around some-
thing that interests you for that
long, you get to know it."
A station built to supply
water to the railroad workers -
and to many Keys residents at
the time was built near
where the South Dade Marina is
located.

Bob Naumann, a marina owner on the 18-Mile Stretch and
local historian, displays a shaped wooden piece he believes
comes from a pdddlewheel boat used in building the
Overseas Railway. The current U.S. construction project has not
revealed any new artifacts from the Flagler Railroad, he said.


The state Department of
Transportation is aware that
some historic artifacts may be
unearthed during the highway
widening, said project spokes-
woman Patti Jones.
"We're keeping on eye on it
as things come up," Jones said.
"We have a biologist and
experts who can check these
things out."
Naumann and a state official
recently checked a cache of old
bottles that was revealed by the
construction.
"They were old, but only one
of them may have been from the
railroad era," Naumann said.
Workers on the original
highway project did not have an
abundance of material, so they
likely re-used any railroad
material after the 1935 hurri-


cane ended the existence of the
Overseas Railroad, he said.
When the fill dirt placed by
Flagler's crews to bridge Lake
Surprise is removed, some rail-
road artifacts may be uncovered
there, Jones said.
But the fill removal is one of
the last projects to be undertak-
en as part o the highway recon-
struction.
One legitimate Overseas
Railroad artifact has been iden-
tified in the Upper Keys the
locking mechanism from the
original Jewfish Creek Bridge,
a swingspan.
"DOT has tried to give it
some of the historical associa-
tions but no one can take it,"
Naumann said. "It's huge. It
weighs several thousand
pounds."

BALANCED REPRESENTATION
City Council is responsible for planning and implementing a balance
in future development. This balance should provide a better quality of
life and offer new opportunities for all of Marathon's citizens.

SPENDING
City Council must control spending. Our budget continues to spiral
out of control and our city needs leaders who have proven themselves
through experience in the private sector. Irresponsible spending must end.

Mote headquarters in Sarasota.
After a necropsy was performed
Thursday, the specimen is being
preserved in an alcohol solu-
tion.
The find was interesting
enough to prompt a trip this
week by a cephalopod expert
with the Smithsonian
Institution. The expert, a spe-
cialist in Caribbean squids, is
expected to arrive in Sarasota
on Tuesday.
The Keys squid was
described as "gelatinous,"
which may indicate a deepwater
species. Most squid seen in the
South Atlantic or Gulf of
Mexico are not gelatinous.
"It's pretty cool to think this
possibly may be a new species,"
Slimak said. "It seems.at least to
be a very real possibility."


"It's fun to think that there
could be a new type of squid
hanging out down here, some-
thing no one has ever seen
before," Slimak said. "New
species are found in the ocean
all the time."
Few, however, are 13 feet
long. Very few squids anywhere
grow longer than two feet in
length.
Staff at Mote, a nonprofit
research facility, knows what a
giant squid looks like they
have one of the few specimens
known to exist, a giant squid
about 30 feet in length.
Squids have eight arms for
grasping prey and two tentacles.
Earlier this week, a fishing
boat working New Zealand
recovered a squid believed to be
the largest ever seen about 39
feet in length and weighing 990
pounds.


Contractor gets

second chance


A squid found off the Lower
Keys on Tuesday counts as "a
very large squid," but do not
call it a giant squid, say the,
Mote Marine Laboratory staff.
"A giant squid is a specific
species, and this is not a giant
squid," said lab spokeswoman
Nadine Slimak. "But is a very
large squid."
More significantly, the
cephalopod measuring about 13
feet in length could be previous-
ly unknown species of squid.
Debi Ingrao, a mollusk
expert for Mote who has seen
her share of squids, did not rec-
ognize it, Slimak said..
"We're looking at the litera-
ture, but our mollusk expert said
it's unlike any she has seen,"
Slimak said, "especially consid-
ering the area it came from."
Most squids seen near the
Florida Keys -are Caribbean reef
squids, measuring only a few
inches in length.
The 13-foot squid reportedly
was found floating south of Key
West by a charter boat captained
by Clint Moore. More specific
information was not immediate-
ly available.
David Vaughan,. director of
Mote's Tropical Research
Laboratory on Summerland

"I have the jurors understand
how important it is what they're
doing," Circuit Court Judge
Wayne Miller told the commis-
sion. "Then they sit in a jury box
where they can't see the wit-
ness.... A lot of times we're walk-
ing on wet carpets and tiles
because we're dealing with leaky
walls and backed-up sewers.
Every day they have to mop up
where the sewers back up."
Miller pleaded with commis-
sioners not to table the question
and instead consider resolving
the issues or opting for the sec-
ond-lowest bidder on the project.
"We're doing everything we
can to try and salvage this,"
Koppel said. "The last thing we
want to do is hold up construction
on this project."
Since its inception in the early
1990s, the cost of the future
courthouse and judges' chambers
has increased from an estimated
$4 million to at least $13 million.
Original architect Jose Gonzales
has been fired, and general con-
tracting company The Tower
Group has nearly been replaced.
According to Koppel, the
county may be able to purchase
the materials and just contract
Pavers and Stove to install it, thus
foregoing a need for posting the
bond.
Hutton said she worries the
company's inability to post the
bond could mean it is financially
unstable.

Freeman Center
performance bond
still not posted
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Com-
mission decided Wednesday to
.give a contractor another month
to post a performance bond on
the Freeman Justice Center in
Key West.
If the commission outright
cancels the contract with Pavers
and Stone Inc. for work on the
courthouse's facade, rebidding
the work could cost the county an
extra $1 million, County
Engineer Dave Koppel said.
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton told the commission, dur-
ing its regular meeting
Wednesday in Key Largo, that
Pavers and Stone has not secured
a required performance and pay-
ment bond six months after sign-
ing a contract with the county.
"This contract continues to be
a problem to my office," she said.
"The contract was awarded in
August, and in October we final-
ly tracked the contractor down
who had moved, and not told us,
to get him to sign the contract."
The much-stalled new court-
house in Key West may seemed
jinxed, especially for local judges
who have been begging the
County Commission for the past
decade to hurry it up.

Northstar wins first round


Resort plan
would include
affordable units
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Disapproval of an Upper
Keys zoning change got one
resident thrown out of this
week's Monroe County
Commission meeting in Key
Largo, but she wasn't alone.
A number of Upper Keys
residents, along with
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy,
opposed a change in zoning to
accommodate the proposed
Northstar Resort Enterprises
development at mile marker
99.
In a 4-1 vote with Murphy
opposing, the commission
approved a change from subur-
ban commercial to mixed use.
After the vote, Upper Keys
activist Kay Thacker gestured
a thumb's down at the commis-
sioners, prompting Mayor
Mario Di Gennaro to have her
removed from the meeting.
Thacker said she opposes
the change in zoning for a
number of reasons, including


the argument that a new resort
will require additional work-
force housing, something'
already in short supply.
Other Upper Keys residents
spoke against the change.
"This is another RV park,
mobile-home park lost to high-
end development," Fred
Nickerson said. "No net loss of
workforce housing is the coun-
ty's directive."
The zoning change is the
first step in a proposal by the
developer to build 20 afford-
able housing units "concurrent
with a hotel resort project."
The county would still have to
approve a major conditional
use for the project to move for-
ward.
"The only thing we won't
get is the expected affordable
workforce housing if this proj-
ect turns into something else,"
Commissioner George Neugent
said, adding, "I will walk up
and down U.S. Highway 1 with
a sign saying that we didn't get
what you guys are promising
here today" if the company
doesn't come through.
Attorney Joel Reed, repre-
senting Northstar, told the


Holt murder trial set


He's accused
in the killing
of MARC staffer
The murder trial of Johnny
Ray Holt is set to begin next
month, say prosecutors for
Monroe County State Attorney
Mark Kohl.
Holt is accused of murder-
ing 63-year-old Rodger
Keller, a botanist at the
Monroe Association of Re-
tarded Citizens' plant store, in
the victim's Key West home
March 20, 2006.
A grand jury indicted Holt,
25, on the first-degree murder
charge last April 18.
In addition to murder, Holt
is charged with robbery with a
firearm and burglary of a
dwelling with a firearm, both
first-degree felonies.
Jury selection is set to
begin on March 12. Acting
Circuit Court Judge Wayne
Miller will preside over the
trial, which is to take place in
Key West. Holt faces life in
prison if convicted of the mur-
der charge.
Holt allegedly drove to Key


iie West the day
of the murder
After burglar-
izing his girl-
S* friend's par-
ents' house
f in Danville,
S Ala., taking a
"4 'I shotgun, rifle
HOLT and handgun,
and stealing
a pickup truck from their
home.
Police allege Holt then
waited alone inside Keller's
4th Street for Keller to return
from work. Police say the two
lived together briefly 2004.
Authorities believe Holt
then shot and killed Keller,
stole his wallet including
identification and credit cards
- moved his car to the corner
of 5th and Patterson streets
and headed back up north,
where he was pulled over by
police in Georgia.
He was identified as the
murder suspect and extradited
to Monroe County, where he's
been in the county jail ever
since.


commission the site has 138
RV sites and 13 market-rate
building permits.
"In addition, 47 mobile
homes on Northstar were
transferred to the Florida Keys
RV Park," he said, adding that
they would be deemed afford-
able housing.
He said the zoning change
merely allows more flexibility
to create attached units rather
than the detached units stipu-
lated by the suburban commer-
cial zoning that exists on the
site.
Developers have been seek-
ing to transfer building rights
from one site to another more
frequently in recent years as
property values have soared.
Because county code requires
they build 30 percent of new
developments as affordable
housing, some builders are
buying RV and mobile-home
parks intending to build the
affordable units there and
transfer valuable market rate
permits to waterfront sites.


Romancing The Home

In a competitive housing market, how do you prepare your home to elecit an. "I LOVE it!"
response from buyers who are touring many properties?

The first step to an irresistible home involves the minimalist approach of "de-personalizing"
so that buyers can respond to the essentials features of the house without being distracted by
evidence of your ownership. Personal memorabilia such as family photographs, awards and
trophies, collectibles and pieces of much-loved but mismatched antique furniture should be
placed in storage.

Decorate your home for showing as if they buyers were esteemed guests. Place your best
tablecloth and a fresh floral centerpiece On your dining room table. Adorn the beds with
your most elegant linens and refresh bathrooms with lightly scented aromatherapy candles
and your plushest towels.
Collaborate with a real estate agent you trust to get your home ready for its date with the
new owner! Ask how you can make your best 'first' impression!

Specializing in Florida Keys real estate since 1984, Patti has lived, worked and played in the
Keys all her life. She has been named as Chairman of the 4th District Advisory Committee to
the Tourist Development Council, graduate and Board Member of Leadership Monroe
County, and a former member of the Village of Islamorada Land Acquisition Advisory
Committee.

FCAT still stirs passions


Next round for
reading, math
starts Tuesday
By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com

Most students, parents and
teachers in Florida have strong
opinions about the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test
- whether it's a good tool for
measuring success or merely an
exercise to obtain more school
funding.
The FCAT guides much of the
Monroe County School District's
curriculum and labels entire
schools as either passing or fail-
ing. Some state funding depends
on what grade the school
receives.
But increasingly, educators
and some parents ask: What does
this exam test? Is the test an
effective assessment of overall
school achievement? Should the
FCAT be used to determine fund-
ing bonuses for teachers?
The Reporter interviewed
local and state officials as well as
district parents and teachers to
find answers to those questions
and others that surround FCAT.
The FCAT is part of Florida's
plan to increase student achieve-
ment by implementing higher
standards, according to the

Florida Department of Education,
which maintains a Web site to
explain the FCAT.
The exam is made up of two
parts.
The first includes criterion-
referenced tests, which measure
student understanding of math,
science, reading and writing
according to specific state guide-
lines, or so-called Sunshine State
Standards. The second part
includes norm-related tests in
math and reading, which com-
pare Florida student scores
against national norms, according
to the DOE's Web site.
Tests are administered to stu-
dents in grades three through 10.
Every grade takes the reading and
math exam which includes
both criterion-referenced tests
and norm-related tests. But the
DOE notes that only grades five,
eight and 11 take the science
exam that is entirely a criterion-
referenced test.
From Feb. 6 to 9, students in
grades four, eight and 10 took the
new Writing Plus test, which is
criterion-based and now includes
multiple choice questions in addi-
tion to a writing prompt.
Starting Tuesday and going to
March 9, testing will be done in
grades three to 10 for reading and
math under Sunshine State
Standards and for norm-related
testing.
Bruce King, district adminis-
trator for accountability and
assessment, said FCATs are grad-
ed on a scale from 100 to 500.
Those scores translate into grade-
dependent achievement levels
numbered one through five.
Students in third grade must
reach achievement level two or
above, he said, to advance to
fourth grade. Students in grade 10
must receive a score of 300 or
better on the exam before they're
allowed to graduate, King-said.
While it's good for schools to
have a tool for measuring student
performance, the FCAT has taken
the focus away from teaching stu-
dents a broad, well-rounded cur-
riculum, said Tony Trzeciak, par-
ent of a senior at Coral Shores
High School.
"I have mixed emotions about
it. There might be too much
emphasis on the FCAT. It's taken
on a life of its own," Trzeciak
said.

FCAT 'dominating'
There are many other ways
that student success can be meas-
ured in the classroom, School
Board member Duncan
Mathewson said.
,.Wiie it's important to haye,


accountability, Mathewson said
he worries the FCAT has taken
school attention away from other
parts of the curriculum, like
music, art and physical educa-
tion. He said a standardized test
should not control the curriculum
that guides classroom instruction.
Opinions vary about how
much the test should dictate cur-
riculum.
"The test is dominating every-
thing that we're doing in the
classroom," said Marianne
Esposito, who has a long teach-
ing record as a third-grade substi-
tute at Sugarloaf Elementary
School.
John Pertner, principal of
Marathon High, said he's a sup-
porter of standardized testing,
adding that the curriculum should
take FCAT into consideration.
"Would you ever test a kid on
something they haven't been
taught?" he asked.
School Board member John
Dick disagreed, saying teachers
shouldn't change their teaching
schedules because of a test.
"If everyone taught a balanced
curriculum," Dick said, "the
FCAT would take care of itself."

School grading
Under the state's A Plus pro-
gram, schools are graded depend-
ing on their students' FCAT
scores and how much those
scores have improved over the
years. Schools that go up a grade
or maintain an A receive bonus
money from the state in addition
to their normal funding, which
depends on the number of stu-
dents at the school.
Monroe has eight A schools,
three B schools and one C school.
Annette Martinson, principal
of Key Largo School, said one
test shouldn't determine the grad-
ing of the school. The test cannot
create a complete picture of a
school, she said.
"We do a lot of great things for
children that are not put into the
equation for our grading," she
said.
District Superintendent Randy
Acevedo said he disagrees with
awarding schools additional
funding based on their grade.
"There's much more going on
in a school than just that test," he
said.
"To have a financial reward
based on how a student performs
on a particular day on a particular
test doesn't seem fair," Coral
Shores math teacher Dianne
Wischmeier said.
"We can'f as a system ignore
the FCAT, grades or money,"
Acevedo said, "We have to play
by these rules and we're going to
do the.best we can."

Keys reading scores fall over past 5 years


Assessment
can be seen
different ways
By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com

According to a comparative
report of FCAT scores from 2002
to 2006, Monroe County School
District students show improved
performance in all grades and in
all areas except reading.
In the past five years of FCAT
testing, reading scores declined
in eighth and 10th grade. The
2006 10th grade reading test


results showed that only 37 per-
cent of Monroe County students
scored at or above their reading
grade level.
It's hard to tell how fair or
comprehensive the test really is
for individual students, said
Marianne Esposito, long a third-
grade substitute at Sugarloaf
Elementary School.
She said some kids aren't
good test-takers, but display
understanding of the material
during class.
Coral Shores High School
math teacher Dianna Wischmeier
said the FCAT covers geometry


skills even though some 10th-
graders may not yet have taken
geometry in school. She said stu-
dents in that situation sometimes
end up retaking the test in subse-
quent years, but usually pass it
before graduation.
Anita Meinbach, lecturer at
the University of Miami's School
of Education, said the FCAT
does not give an accurate portrait
of the problems students have.
She said children who do poorly
on the test might have trouble
with the material or it might be
"a question of motivation."
The FCAT may not give
definitive answers about one stu-
dent or one year, School Board


Commission races could be crowded


member John Dick said, but it
shows areas where schools need
help in the long-term. It is useful,
he said, but it should only be one
of many tools that the district,
schools and teachers use to eval-
uate what's going on in the class-
room.
The FCAT only measures
basic knowledge of what kids


should know in grades three
through 10, School Board mem-
ber Duncan Mathewson said, and
does not measure what they
know in areas other than the core
subjects.
"It's the bare minimum," he
said, "We need to rise above the
FCAT standard."

Although the fall elections are
still seven months away, there's
no shortage of people interested
in possibly running for Key West
City Commission.
Both incumbents and others
are pondering whether to enter
the Oct. 2 election.
The seats up are held by
Mayor Morgan McPherson,
District 2 Commissioner Mark
Rossi, District 4 Commissioner
Jose Menendez and District 5
Commissioner Harry Bethel.
While candidates have until
Aug. 17 before candidate qualify-
ing ends, McPherson has already
stepped forward with his intent to
run again for mayor. His 2005
opponent for the seat is also con-
sidering another run.
"I don't see anything being
done to improve the quality of
life for citizens," said Jimmy
Weekley, a six-year mayor and
20-year commissioner before his
defeat.
In District 2, Rossi, who
couldn't be reached by press time
Friday, has not publicly declared
his candidacy, although he did.
attend a recent Hometown
Political Action Committee meet-
ing.
Hometown PAC Chairman
Todd German himself has indi-
cated he may consider a cam-
paign for the same seat. The
Hometown PAC has as among its
missions providing residents with
opportunities to become more
involved in local government.
Already the District 4 race is
gearing up to be crowded.
The 16-year veteran Bethel
has confirmed his decision to step
aside and not run again.
"I'm looking forward to tak-
ing some time and relaxing with


my family," he said.
However, there is no lack of
newcomers willing to take his
place.
Six candidates have acknowl-
edged interest in possibly enter-
ing the race: Paul Clayton, Lydia
Estenoz, Barry Gibson, Richard
Grusin, Richard Klitnick and
Elmira Leto.
Clayton, recently tapped to
serve as the city's affordable-
housing coordinator, said he is
thinking of running due to what
he sees as "infrastructure prob-
lems" in Key West.
Estenoz, a Florida Keys
Community College employee
who lost a race for the School
Board last year, said she would
want to make sure her candidacy
would be in the best interest of
the city and the college.
Gibson, former Monroe
County president of First Union
Bank and current owner of
Shades of Key West, said his love
of politics and the community has
him considering an entrance into
the political scene.
Grusin, chairman for the city's
SCommunity Housing Committee,
said his firsthand experience in
what he calls a slow-moving
political process has caused him
to consider whether he may be
more instrumental in implement-
ing ideas as a commissioner.
Klitnick, a lawyer and chair-
man of the Key West Planning
Board, also expressed his desire
to give back to the community.
Leto, executive director and
founder of the women and chil-
dren's shelter Samuel's House,
said she would like to see the city
get back to its basics by "restor-
ing, regrouping and rebuilding."
In District 5, Menendez has
not decided whether he, will


rerun, calling any speculation he
has already decided to step down
"untrue."
"I'm still in the process of
deciding," he said.
Also weighing the decision of
a possible run for that seat is
Peter Batty Jr., who has previous-
ly served on the Key West Tree
Commission and is an alternate
on the Historic Architectural
Review Commission.
"I am definitely considering
the options, but things look opti-
mistic," he said.

City hall again

OF THE FLORIDA KEYS


I MARATHO


on agenda

This time, it's
for building plans
at Events Field
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
will again take up discussion of
issues surrounding the future of a
new city hall when the board
meets at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the
Marathon Government Center.
The council is slated to hear
presentations from three architec-
tural and engineering firms vying
to work on a current proposal to
build a new city hall and county
library facility on the city Events
Field between 98th and 99th
streets.
The project is expected to cost
between $7 million and $10 mil-
lion.
According to Community
Services Director Susie Thomas,
eight firms attended a. pre-bid
meeting last month and three
submitted statements of qualifi-
cations, which were ranked by a
city selection committee.
The top-ranked firm is Fort
Lauderdale-based Cartaya and
Associates, which is the firm
working on the new city fire sta-
tion at Florida Keys Marathon
Airport.
Thomas said Cartaya has
worked well with fire-station
construction manager Biltmore
Construction, which was recently
chosen to lead the city
hall/library project.
"Our fire station team is just
an awesome team, just whacking
right through that fire station,"

wI0n Pigeon Key talks
are put on hold

The Monroe County Com-
mission agreed Wednesday to
delay discussion regarding possi-
ble changes to the county's lease
with the Pigeon Key Foundation
until the March 21 commission
meeting in Marathon.
The discussion had been put
on this week's agenda by County
Attorney Suzanne Hutton as a
oterl follow-up to a January letter she
sent to the foundation requesting
a number of documents required
Sby, the lease that were not in her
possession.
The foundation has been leas-


ing the small historic island jusl
off Marathon since 1993. In
December, the commission
began asking questions about the
lease after approving a request
for proposals for an interim ferry
service to the historic landmark.
The Florida Department of
Transportation committed to pay
up to $750,000 for ferry service
over the next three years while
the old Seven Mile Bridge is
rehabbed. The historic bridge is
literally falling apart, according
to DOT officials.
Officials of the Pigeon Key
Foundation are creating a busi-
ness plan they intend to present
to the County Commission at the
regular March meeting.


Thomas said. "Cartaya also a lo
of library and city hall experi
ence, more than the other tw4
firms."
The second-ranked firm
Delray Beach-based Currie
Sowaros and Aguila, is als
familiar in the Keys after having
done work for the county's Bi,
Coppitt and Key Largo fire sta
tions, Thomas said.
Thomas said the third firm
Hays/Cumming Architects out o
St. Petersburg, has done work a
Florida Keys Communit:
College and Key Wes
International Airport.
"All three companies are real
ly great," Thomas said. "We hav
a good, better and best, and it wil
be up the council again."
Just like with the approval o
the construction manager, th
council is expected to pick a to
architectural firm but direct staff
not to begin contract negotiation
until the council further explore'
an option to move city staff int
the Marathon Governmen
Center.
The county has been planning
to move its current offices out o
the government center and into -
new facility in the Lower Keys.
A resolution later in Tuesday'
agenda would request th
Monroe County Commission t
authorize County Administratoi
Tom Willi to negotiate the trans
fer of ownership of the building
with City Manager Mike Puto.
Although the county con
structed the building, the state
currently owns the land under the
government center and leases the
property to the county.

Tourists gather around the Southernmost Point buoy in Key West Thursday. The landmark will
soon be joined by seven Seward Johnson statues that are scheduled to be installed for a
60-day pilot period.


Buoy getting company soon


By CHRISTINE BRADEN
cbraden@keynoter.com

Seven life-size statues will
soon meet the many Key West
visitors who flock to the
Southernmost Point buoy.
Wednesday,. the Key West
City Commission approved a res-
olution to install the bronze stat-
ues, sculpted by famed artist
Seward Johnson, after turning
down the measure in its previous
forms twice before.
Commissioner Dan Kolhage
sponsored the latest agenda item
allowing the statues titled
"New Friends" to be placed
around the buoy for a trial period
of 60 days instead of a year as a
previous resolution had called
for.
"I'm delighted, of course,"
said Monica Haskell, president of
the Florida Keys Council of the
Arts.
Haskell from the Key West
Art in Public Places board after
the commission failed to approve
the statues installation in January.
"This is a great time to have a
trial period," she said. "There are
obviously a lot of visitors right
now and I'm sure they will love
the work [of Johnson] just like
they do all over the world."
Claudia Pennington, executive
director of the Key West Art &
Historical Society, encouraged
the commission to approve the
resolution. Pennington said that
as of Wednesday, 7,522 people
had paid to see the 35 Johnson
sculptures at the Key West
Custom House exhibit. There are
also eight Johnson sculptures on


the Custom House porch,
"Looking at that number,
which for us is a wonderful num-
ber, I'm sure there are double or
triple that many people outside
enjoying the sculptures without
paying the money to come in,"
she said.
While most of the statue dis-
cussion was positive, Bahama
Village resident Norma Jean
Sawyer-Atanda expressed con-
cern that the various ethnicities of
the statues- does not accurately
represent the city. Assistant City
Manager John Jones also offered


a word of caution.
"We have a very severe traffic
problem at the Southernmost
Point. We have a safety problem
and we need to monitor the num-
ber of people there," he said.
According to his representa-
tives, Johnson, a Key West home-
owner, created the life-like stat-
ues specifically for the
Southernmost Point.
The resolution passed 4-1,
with commissioners Mark Rossi
and Harry Bethel absent and Jose
Menendez voting against.
The statues, whose estimated
worth is $750,000, will most like-
ly be installed early March.

Official: Budget healthy


And the final
'Vandenberg'
paperwork OK'd
By CHRISTINE BRADEN
cbraden@keynoter.com

So far, officials with the Key
West Finance Department say
they are "cautiously optimistic"
about the 2006-07 budget.
Finance Department Director
Roger Wittenberg presented a
first-quarter report to the Key
West City Commission Wednes-
day and says the $38.4 general
fund is in good shape.
"When we calculate 25 per-
cent of the budget, the revenues
are never 25 percent of the budg-
et due to a number of factors," he
said, "the biggest factor being the
seasonal influence of tourism
volumes."
The city collected $17 million
in revenue the first quarter of this
fiscal year, he said. The number
includes $10 million in ad val-
orem taxes.
According to Wittenberg, the
first quarter traditionally shows a
low to moderate influx of tourism
dollars, which account for much
of the city's budgeted revenues.
The city expects the collected rev-
enue to show an increase after the
second quarter of this fiscal year.
"It's still too early to tell,"

'Vandenberg' final
Ten years and countless stacks
of paperwork later, the
Vandenberg artificial-reef project
on Wednesday was given its final
go-ahead by the City Com-
mission in the form of a contract
between the city and project
organizer Artificial Reefs of the
Keys.
It was the second time com-
missioners approved a measure
making the city the local overseer
of the USS Hoyt Vandenberg, a
decommissioned military ship
that is scheduled to be sunk seven
miles off Key West as an artificial
reef in spring 2008.
However, this time the com-
mission approved a revision that
says ARK does not need to obtain
a performance bond.


"The performance bond is not
required by the bank and they are
the biggest at-risk people in this
transaction," said Commissioner
Bill Verge, who has championed
the project for the city.
According to City Attorney
Shawn Smith, the bond would
have cost close to $7 million and,
provided additional assurances
the project would be completed
should something unforeseen
happen.
The city's approval was the
last in a series of approvals from
federal, state and local agencies
before the Vandenberg can be
scuttled.
The 520-foot ship is being
towed from the James River
Reserve Fleet site to Colonna's
Shipyard in Norfolk, Va., where it
will have hazardous materials
removed in preparation for scut-
tling.
Bills to help fund artificial-
reef projects had been introduced
in both the Florida House and
Senate as of Wednesday. The
Legislature goes into session in
March.


House bill would
enforce checks
for steroid use
Associated Press


The sponsor of a bill that
would authorize a random one-
year anabolic steroid testing pro-
gram for Florida high school ath-
letes is taking another shot at get-
ting the measure passed.
The proposal (HB 461) is
sponsored by Rep. Marcelo
Llorente, a Miami Republican
who has -twice successfully
pushed it through the House.
"We should really do some-
thing to ensure that these young
men and women know that there
are very dangerous health conse-
quences associated with steroids
use," Llorente said Wednesday.
The 29-year-old former col-
lege infielder believes the atten-
tion surrounding the investiga-
tions into steroid use in Major
League Baseball will benefit his
cause.
"It's certainly raised the
issue," Llorente said. "At the end
of the day, young kids look at
these professionals."
Under the proposal, the
; Florida High School Activities


Association the governing
body of interscholastic sports in
the state would oversee the
testing. All of the association's
member schools, public and pri-
vate, would be subject to the law.
The steroid tests would be
randomly given to 1 percent of
Florida high school athletes who
compete in football, baseball and
weightlifting, beginning in the
2007-08 school year.
Any athlete who refuses to
provide a urine sample would be
ineligible to remain on the team.
Those who test positive would be
suspended from the team, but
could be reinstated by passing a
follow-up test at a later date.
Llorente is trying to line up
someone in the Senate to help
.push the measure through that
body in the upcoming session
that begins March 6.
Llorente also said he believes
Gov. Charlie Crist, "a huge advo-
cate to protect children," he said,
would sign the measure. Crist's
office said Crist had yet to see the
bill.
The Florida High School
Activities Association in
Gainesville has not yet comment-
ed on the measure.

Lawmakers talk tax hikes


reys obituary


Lower property
taxes could be
on the horizon
Associated Press


Now that property insurance
rate relief is likely, lawmakers
have turned their attention to
another bane of homeowners -
rising property taxes.
House Republicans are
expected Wednesday to unveil
their plan for trying to give
Florida residents a break from
soaring local tax rates.
But local governments are
wary, concerned that anything
that cuts money coming in will
make it harder to pay for servic-
es residents expect, from fixing
potholes to putting police on the
beat.
While some in the
Legislature say local govern-
ments simply need to curb
spending, others know that's a
political difficulty, and that has
some thinking about how lost
incoming property tax money
might be replaced.
Among the possibilities get-
ting serious consideration is
replacing lost property tax dol-
lars with higher sales tax collec-
tions.
"It's a realistic solution,"
said Rep. Dave Murzin, R-
Pensacola, said of the idea that
the sales tax could be raised a
few pennies to try to ensure
local governments continue
providing services without big
cuts.


Critics say sales tax increas-
es would disproportionately
affect the poor, who tend to pay
much more in sales tax than in
property tax; wealthier people
are likely to pay more in prop-
erty tax.
"A salestax increase is going
to fall very heavily on low-
income people because low-
income people tend to spend all
of their income," said Iris J.
Lay, who studies state tax struc-
ture as deputy director of the
Center on Budget and Policy
Priorities. She spoke to law-
makers during a legislative
property tax summit Tuesday.
Murzin and other proponents
of the idea acknowledge it may
be unpopular with some resi-
dents, particularly people who
live paycheck to paycheck.
"People might get mad if the
cost of a six-pack of beer goes
up," said Murzin. "But every-
body's got to pay into the sys-
tem."
He argued that lower income
people use city services just as
much as wealthier ones, if not
more and they don't pay as
much for those services because
they pay less in property taxes.
Gov. Charlie Crist has been
vocal about the need to reduce
local property tax rates but, as
has been his style, he has
deferred to lawmakers on how it
should be done. On Tuesday, he
sidestepped questions about
whether property tax cuts
should be offset by higher sales
taxes.


Among the more radical pro-
posals some lawmakers have
floated is getting rid of the
state's property tax on
Floridians' primary residences
entirely.
That may be unrealistic,
because replacing the lost rev-
enue would require a sales tax
increase approaching 8 cents,
making the total tax 14 or 15
cents on the dollar, Dominic
Calabro, president of Florida
TaxWatch, told -lawmakers at
the summit.
Calabro also noted that a
hefty increase in sales tax
would boost prices for tourists,
which could hurt the state's
largest industry.
One thing local governments
are concerned about is a cap on
spending or incoming taxes.
More than half the cost of
running a city or county is typi-
cally for public safety main-
ly police and fire, said John
Thomas, legislative director for
the Florida League of Cities.
If lawmakers decide to limit
local tax collections, "it would
be disastrous for cities and the
ability to do the services,"
Thomas said. Also on the cut-
ting block would be the next
biggest expenditure for many
cities parks and recreation
programs.
That would likely anger
local residents, perhaps even
more than having fewer police
on the street.
Crist, however, has suggest-
ed that some cities simply are
spending too much.

Spa's big business in Keys


Spa with temple
setting features
clothing, treatments
By CLAUDIA MILLER
Keynoter Contributor

Nestled away in a quiet neigh-
borhood in Old Town Key West
lies a new store and spa that own-
ers Jasmine Sky and Donnagaye
hope will offer an oasis to women
for shopping and exploring their
inner beauty.
The Dreaming Goddess
Temple Boutique and Garden
Renewal Spa combines the tal-
ents of the two women who have
both been Keys residents for


more than 6 years.
Sky has built a word-of-mouth
reputation for being a fine
designer of silk fashions, which
she calls custom-silk artwear.
Donnagaye is known for her spir-
itual energy work, which she has
been practicing for more than 20
years.
The two women connected
when Donnagaye needed an out-
fit for her daughter's wedding.
Sky put together a long flowing
yellow dress with lime pants and
shawl.
"It was the most perfect outfit
for the mother of the bride,"
Donnagaye said. "The colors and
the flow of the fabric made me


feel so uplifted. You don't even
need to look in the mirror when
you wear these clothes because
you feel so good."
Then Sky sampled some of
Donnagaye's treatments, and
they developed a mutual appreci-
ation for one another.
"She just felt so connected
with the therapy," Donnagaye
said. "We saw that perfect harmo-
ny. We had the idea that we could
combine the tools that we have in
a temple-type atmosphere. It's
our belief system put into action."
As visitors enter the Dreaming
Goddess, they walk into a show-
room full of bright and colorful
hand-painted silks. Everything

HAWK'S CAY / From 25

Hawk's Cay Resort on Duck
Key features 177 guest rooms;
297 privately owned villas, the
majority of which participate in
a rental management program;
25,000 square feet of meeting
space; and 10,000 square feet of
office and retail space.
Amenities include five
restaurants, a resort bar, five
swimming pools, a 7,000 square
foot spa, a 52-slip full service
marina, tennis courts and a chil-
dren's program.
The joint venture to redevel-
op the resort includes plans to
undertake an extensive renova-
tion and re-branding strategy for
the resort. Northview will head
up the redevelopment efforts and


operate the property going for-
ward, the company stated in a
release this week.
Tom Cherniavsky, Hawk's
Cay Resort vice president and
general manager, told the
Keynoter in January that
Northview would manage the
property while overseeing more
than $25 million in planned and
budgeted renovations.
Hawk's Cay was built in
1959.
At that time, Charles Edgar,
who has been the agent for cur-
rent resort owners Hawk's Cay
investors for 25 years, declined
to talk about the sale price,
which was expected to go well
into the hundreds of millions.
"You may want to go ask Mr.
Trump that," Edgar laughed.

hanging in the boutique is a sam-
ple of one of the styles offered in
different fabrics, colors and art-
work. All of the garments are
custom-made to order with a
minimum of two weeks required
for the finished product.
"It's really a fun process," Sky
said. "It's something that's really
not done anymore. The art of
sewing has left our society here
in America, and most people
have never had something made
to order."
A designer her whole life, Sky
started Dreaming Goddess nearly
a decade ago from her home in
New York City when she realized
it was her dream to live in the
tropics. She started with hand-
painted silk sarongs and expand-
ed her collection to include
everything from beach wedding
dresses to pants and shorts.
"The designs are really based
in the ancient style of dressing,"
she said. "There's a lot of
yardage and drape in the cloth-
ing. There are so many ways you
can wear one single garment."
Sky has three different collec-
tions, each with differing price
ranges. Caribbean Dreams is her
least expensive line, and with it,
she allows customers to choose
from four prints. Her mid-range
line, Exclusive Dreams, offers
four different types of silks, nine
textile designs and all of the col-
ors of the rainbow. This line also
includes a private fitting and
color makeover by Sky.
At the highest end, Sky offers
Jasmine's Magic. This includes a
design session with Sky, where
starting from scratch, she drapes

With such a customized
approach, it's no surprise that
Sky has been popular with brides.
She can design outfits for the

Action!


With Oscars on Sunday, it's a
good time to look at Florida's
past and present Hollywood career
McClatchy Tribune


The 79th Academy Awards
air at 8 p.m. Sunday on ABC.
And- while no made-in-the-
Keys films are nominated,
Florida and the Keys have
set the backdrop for Hollywood
in the past. It's no wonder.
Florida, with its weird, wacky
ways and scenic vistas, is always
ready for its close-up.
In fact, so many movies bring
Florida to mind, we had to whip
up a list of favorites.
Granted, some of our picks
weren't even filmed here. And
scads of movies that were made
here didn't make our list.
"Porky's" immediately comes to
mind.
Our shout-out is to films that
evoke Florida. Movies that make
us feel the sun on our back, the
sand in our toes. Movies that
capture Florida's past or present
or even a Florida that never was.

Florida: Hollywood's favorite backlot


OSCARS / From 27

'Key Largo'
The stars: Humphrey Bogart,
Edward G. Robinson, Lauren
Bacall and Lionel Barrymore.
Made in 1948.
The story: A gangster and a
good guy square off in a Key Largo
hotel as a hurricane bears down.
That's Florida! One character
hears about the Keys' death toll,
courtesy of the 1935 hurricane and
delivers this classic line: "Nobody
would live here after a thing like
that!" Then, amid all the movie's
other drama, a hurricane barrels in
and the power goes off. If that
doesn't evoke Florida, what does?

'92 in the Shade'
The stars: Peter Fonda,
Warren Oates, Margot Kidder and


Burgess Meredith. Made in 1975.
+ The story: A young drifter
returns home to Key West and
tries to open a fishing charter
business. A feud with a rival fish-
ing captain follows.
That's Florida! The title gets
our sizzling summers just right.
But the story is straight from the
'70s how many drifters could
meander into glitzy Key West
today and afford to start any-
thing?

'Hoot'
The stars: Logan Lerman,
Luke Wilson, Cody Linley, Brie
Larson. Made in 2006.
The story: Teens battle to
protect a colony of Florida's bur-
rowing owls.
That's Florida! Fort
Lauderdale native and former
Islamorada resident Carl Hiaasen
wrote the book. Jimmy Buffet,
now living in Palm Beach, con-
tributed music. Wil Shriner, who
grew up in Fort Lauderdale,
directed and wrote the screenplay.
And look at the sensitive subject
the burrowing owls on Florida
Atlantic University's Boca cam-
pus probably gave it two talons
up.

'2 Fast 2 Furious'
The stars: Ludacris, Tyrese
Gibson, Paul Walker, Eva
Mendes. Made in 2002.
The story: A disgraced cop


The only other trustworthy source

besides the Keynoter that delivers what

you need to your front door.


Curtain goes up on the Keys

Here's a good sampling of movies made in whole or
part in the Keys:

"92 in the Shade" with Peter Fonda, Warren Oates and
Margot Kidder.
"The Pacifier" with Vin Diesel.
"2 Fast 2 Furious" with Paul Walker and Ludacris.
S"Red Dragon" with Anthony Hopkins, Harvey Keitel.
Edward Norton, Ralph Fiennes and Mary Louise Parker.
"License to Kill" with Timothy Dalton.
"The Breakers" with Gene Hackman.
"The Crew" with Burt Reynolds, Richard Dreyfuss and
Jennifer Tilly.
"True Lies" with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie
Lee Curtis.
"Up Close and Personal" with Robert Redford and
Michelle Pfeiffer.
"Speed 2" with Sandra Bullock.
"Drop Zone" with Wesley Snipes.
"Matinee" with John Goodman.
"Spanish Prisoner" with Steve Martin.
"Blood & Wine" with Jack Nicholson, Michael Caine
and Jennifer Lopez.
"PT 109" with Cliff Robertson,
"Criss-Cross" with Goldie Hawn and Keith Carradine.
Of course, Humphrey Bogart first made the Keys famous
in the movie "Key Largo," about a criminal holed up in an
Upper Keys motel.


infiltrates the Miami street racing
scene to redeem himself. Made in
2003.
That's Florida! The movie is
set in Miami, filmed partly in the
Middle and Lower Keys, but
that's no big deal. The real Florida
connection: Insane drivers.
Zooming cars. Speed-blurred
asphalt. It's just like driving to
work on the mainland.

'Sunshine State'
The stars: Angela Bassett,
Tom Wright, Edie Falco, Timothy
Hutton, Mary Steenburgen,
Miguel Ferrer. Made in 2002.
The story: Land-hungry
developers want to trade a beach-
front community's old-time
charm for slick developments that
they'll sell to monied northerners.
Sound familiar?
That's Florida! It wasn't just
Hollywood magic that so nicely
captured the essence of old
Florida with its mom-and-pop
hotels and a slightly shabby look.
The movie location was Amelia
Island, near Jacksonville.

'Ruby in Paradise'
The stars: Ashley Judd,
Todd Field and Bentley Mitchum.
Made in 1993.
The story: A young woman
comes to a Florida resort town to
make a fresh start. Hmmmm.
Does this sound familiar, too?
+ That's Florida! Forget the
story line. Each time Ashley
Judd's character is inside the sou-
venir shop where she works,


we're scanning the shelves for
treasured mementoes. Where are
the coconut patties, chocolate alli-
gators and Life's a Beach T-
shirts?

'Cocoon'
+ The stars: Don Ameche,
Wilford Brimley, Hume Cronyn,
Jessica Tandy. Made in 1985.
The story: Residents at a St..
Petersburg retirement community
find a Fountain of Youth in a pri-
vate swimming pool.
That's Florida! A perfect tri-
fecta: Old folks. Dreams of youth.
And a movie filmed mainly in
Florida. Ponce de Leon couldn't
have done it better.

'Body Heat'
The stars: William Hurt,
Kathleen Turner. Made in 1981.
The story: Murderous wife
tricks dim-bulb lawyer into killing
her husband. But it's the heat that
gets the starring role.
That's Florida! Filmed
largely in Lake Worth in Palm
Beach County, the movie also
gives Hollywood's historic band
shell a starring turn. But it was the
slick, sweating bodies that made
you feel like you just jogged 10
miles in August. In reality, some
filming happened during a teeth-
chattering South Florida cold
snap. In one scene, extras clad in
tropical wear ditched their coats
and sweaters before the cameras
rolled, repeating the strip for
another take and another and ...

on the islands
Key West and the Lower
Keys were featured on ABC's
"Good Morning America" week-
ly "Weekend Window" segment
last Sunday the second
"Window" piece on the island
chain in about five weeks.
"Good Morning America"
weekend anchor Bill Weir and a
crew recently traveled to the
Keys to produce the segment.
Weir interviewed 1999 "Papa"
Hemingway Look-Alike winner
Rick Kirvan at the Hemingway
House, released a sailfish with
Capt. Mike Weinhofer, snorkeled
at Looe Key Reef with Big Pine
Key's Strike Zone Charters and
enjoyed a Key West sunset with
veteran sunset performer Will
Soto.
In early January, another
"Weekend Window" opened on
Key Largo, examining the
region's natural attributes above
and below the water. Interviews
included Joe and Ronnie Harris,
owners of the Kona Kai Resort
and Gallery; underwater photog-
rapher Stephen Frink; and Pat
Wells, manager of John
Pennekamp Coral Reef State
Park.

Coral Shores hosts
defending district
champs Tuesday
Keynoter Staff

Coral Shores matched scores
with Archbishop Carroll in
every inning except one, but
that one cost the baseball
Hurricanes.
Carroll, a District 16-3A foe,
topped the Canes, 8-7, Tuesday
in Miami.
"It was a game we should
have won, but we made mis-
takes that cost us," coach Jeff
Meyers said. "You gotta catch
the ball. It was a real disap-
pointing loss."
The Hurricanes scored two
runs in the first, three runs in
the fourth and two runs in the
sixth virtually identical to the
Bulldogs' scoring. But Carroll
added a solo score in the fifth,
and that was the game.
Rafael Medina had a solo
home run for Coral Shores in
his 2-for-2 day.
Ray Ferro and Stephen
Fowler each had two hits in the
Canes' nine-hit offense. Fowler
also played well defensively in
the outfield, Meyers said.
Coral Shores plays a 1 p.m.
game today at Island
Christian School against
Spanish River High School of
Boca Raton. The game was
moved to the ICS campus
because the Rotary Nautical
Flea Market takes place at
Founders Park.
Chris Noble, a junior third

softball coach Jason Frank said.
At only 167 feet from home
plate to the fence, the ball hit by
Corsicana High School had no
problem arching over to give
the visiting team from Texas the
three runs it needed to beat
Marathon 5-3 in the Dolphins'
season-opener.
Marathon will play all its
home games at Switlik while


construction of a new high
school has forced administra-
tors to place dozens of portable
classrooms on the Dolphins
home field.
Still, Frank said the 2007
Dolphins looked strong in the
contest considering the unfortu-
nate short fence and the fact that
four varsity players, including
two key starters, were missing
due to violations of team .and
school rules.


"I think it was a good learn-
ing experience," Frank said.
"We got the first game out of
the way against a tough team,
and we knew we were in it the
entire time. I was proud of
them."
Pitcher Megan Gardner had a
solid complete game, giving up
six hits and one walk while
striking out five.

Redland Tuesday
Keynoter Staff

Coral Shores' tennis team
finally opened its season Friday,
two weeks later than planned.
"We ran into all kinds of
weather problems with those
fronts coming through," coach


Blake Fry said.
The Hurricanes had to
reschedule early-season matches
against Key West High School,
Marathon High School and
Westminster.
The boys and girls teams
played their first match Friday
against Doral Academe of
Miami (results not available at
press time).
"The kids are eager to play,


but Doral's got some good play-
ers," said Fry.
Coral Shores has two home
matches scheduled this week,
Thursday against LaSalle and
Friday against Key West.

Coral Shores loses a pair


Lady Canes seek
hits to break
early slump
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Coral Shores' softball Lady
Hurricanes spent a lot of prac-
tice time at the plate this week.
"We've got to get more hits,"
said Paul Grewe, co-coach with
Mike Young. "We're going to
be taking a lot more swings in
practice in the next few days."
The Lady Canes have
markedly improved their play
after winning only once last
season, but the progress so far
has only led to closer losses.
This week, the fast-pitch
squad dropped an 8-5 decision
to Class A power Princeton
Christian on Tuesday, and fell
to District 16-3A opponent
Archbishop Carroll, 5-1,
Wednesday.


The Canes (0-3) enjoy home-
field advantage for the next two
weeks with a string of four
straight games at Coral Shores,
beginning Tuesday against
Carrollton.
Maritime and Science
Technology Academy will visit
Friday.
Both games against
Princeton and Carroll were
winnable, Grewe said.
"We only had three hits
against Princeton but came back
to 7-5 after being down 7-0," he
said. "We had the bases loaded
in the second and third innings
but couldn't get the timely hit
we needed."
Coral Shores also saw its
veteran defense turn porous,
committing nine errors. "Our
defense should be pretty good
but it sabotaged us in this
game," Grewe said.
Senior Kelsie Baker tripled
for the Hurricanes, while
Stephanie Campos and Lauren


Sanchez singled.
Ciara Sanchez and Andrea
Cockerham picked up RBIs as
Coral Shores tried to rally with
one run in the fifth and four
runs in the sixth.
Coral Shores took a 1-0 lead
over Carroll with a third-inning
score, but squandered it by sur-
rendering four runs in the
fourth.
"Our defense played a much
better game at Carroll," Grewe
said, "except for the fourth
inning. We didn't make many
mistakes, but the ones we did
make hurt us."
The Hurricane outfield -
Baker, Cockerham and Chelsea
Russell "played an outstand-
ing defensive game," the coach
said.
Freshman pitcher Holly
Given drove in the Hurricanes'
one run and had a triple later in
the game.
Russell, Cockerham and
Lauren Sanchez accounted for
the team's other three hits.

Corsicana controls Dolphins


DOLPHINS / From 35

Gardner threw strikes the
entire game and allowed
Marathon's defense to control
the game in the field. The
Dolphins committed one error
on the day.
However, the Corsicana
pitcher single-handedly con-
trolled the Dolphins at the plate
with an impressive 15 strike-
outs and only three hits
allowed.
"She was one of the top five
pitchers we'll see all year,"
Frank said. "She had a lot of
different pitches, but we did
start to catch up with her speed
later on."
The Dolphins scored in the
first when Kelly Struyf nailed a
double, stole third and took
home on a passed ball. Eighth-
grader Struyf led Marathon hit-
ters, going 2-for-3.
Marathon took the 1-0 lead
into the third inning, when
Corsicana hit back-to-back sin-
gles and then the short homer to
go up 3-1.
Marathon allowed two more
runs in the fifth when a fly ball
dropped in front of an outfield-
er.
Gardner kept the Corsicana
hitters at bay the rest of the
game. In the bottom of the fifth,
the once dominant Corsicana
pitcher loaded the bases and

then walked in a run.
Struyf scored the final run on
a singly by Melanie Boyd.
Marathon put on runners in the
bottom of the seventh but
couldn't bring them in.
"Defensively we played


well, and we ran the bases well
when we got on," Frank said.
"It's just hitting, but I think that
is going to come around too."

16-2A opponent Westwood

O'Connor crushes


two homers


Junior slugger
leads Dolphin
in 1-4 win
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

It's safe to say Westwood
Christian had a little trouble with
Marathon High School baseball
slugger Sean O'Connor when the
two teams met in Miami on
Thursday.
On the third pitch of the game,
O'Connor set the tone for his day
with a solo home run hit about
330 feet over the right-field gap.
Westwood wisely walked
O'Connor at his next plate
appearance with the bases
loaded, allowing one run to score
rather than risk a grand slam.
At O'Connor's third appear-
ance, a different pitcher put him
behind in the count, 0-2. But
O'Connor seemed to like the
third pitch, which he deposited
nearly 400 feet away into a tree
behind center field. It was good
for two more runs.
In the fifth inning, O'Connor
merely singled for an RBI. But
bases were again loaded at
O'Connor's last plate appear-
ance, and the Westwood pitcher
again wisely threw balls.
However, the fourth pitch
seemed hittable to O'Connor as it
dove into the dirt before reaching
home plate. The ball shot through

start of the season against

Results from a Friday trip to
Palmer Trinity were not avail-
able at press time. Mike Rentz
was tapped as the starting
pitcher.
"If we keep hitting the way
we have been, we'll be fine,"
Meyers said. "We just need to
score more runs by taking bet-
ter advantage of the hits we
get."

the infield for a two more RBIs.
When the dust cleared,
O'Connor's 4-for-4, two homer
and six-RBI day led the Dolphins
(2-2) to a statement 11-4 win
over a non-district opponent.
Coach Luis Leal said it was
the best hitting performance he's
seen in his time at Marathon, and
all it took was a little adjustment.
"We picked up on something
small," Leal said. "He was turn-
ing with his hands too low, caus-
ing him to get under the ball. We

moved his hands higher, and he's
now staying on top of the ball
and really driving it hard."
O'Connor led the Dolphins in
every offensive category last
year and was an honorable men-
tion nominee for the Class 2A
all-state team, and Leal said he's
getting better with every game.
But the rest of the Dolphin
lineup was also swinging well on
Thursday, with nearly every
player getting at least one hit.
Defensively, Marathon played
a sound game with only three
errors on the day, although two
errors led directly to two
Westwood runs.
Sophomore pitcher Toby
Eigner continued his dominance
with a complete game, 96-pitch
performance. He allowed two
earned runs on four hits, one
walk and five strikeouts.
It's a good sign, Leal said,
after several pre-season and early
regular season losses filled with
errors and inconsistent pitching.
Marathon travels to play
District 16-2A opponent Palmer
Trinity at 4 p.m. Wednesday.
Leal said Eigner will again get
the start.. ., ,

The great peanut butter debate


Peter Pan recall
sparks unofficial
poll at 'Keynoter'
T his week's recall of Peter
Pan peanut butter with the
2111 serial number on the
lid prompted me to take a poll of
peanut butter aficionados, which
I consider myself to be one of,
whether creamy or crunchy is
better. In case you've been living
under a rock lately, some of the
2111 batch is contaminated with
salmonella, forcing the recall.
For me, carrots and peanut
butter is one of the four major
food groups, and my comrades
say one of these days my skin is
going to take on an orange hue
because of that. The brand?
Peter Pan extra crunchy. The jar
currently in my desk drawer is
emblazoned with the 2111 num-
bers on the lid and matches the
jar in my kitchen cabinet. I've
probably consumed gallons of
the stuff with no sickness to

speak of,
so I'm fin-
ishing the
jar. With
carrots.
Waste not,
want not.
So far,
creamy has
won the
poll hands
down,
nearly dou-
bling the
votes cast
by the


crunchies. But it comes down to
more than just a texture prefer-
ence, really. It becomes a
metaphor for how life is lived,
an indicator for personality type.
"If you're willing to try
something that's a little more
challenging to eat you can
swallow creamy peanut butter
without chewing or a little
different, than you're probably
willing to try something different
in everything else in life, too,"
said one creamy guy. "People
who eat crunchy peanut butter
are probably a little more adven-
turous."
This theory may be backed
up by the opinion of another
creamy voter who said, "When I
was a kid I liked crunchy, but
I've matured to appreciate
creamy."
I'm wondering if that means
since I like extra crunchy, I must
also be extra immature?
Then there are those who
took the poll that, if theformula
works, must like to walk the


line. They buy one jar of each.
Another creamy guy calls it
all nonsense.
"It's all about mouth feel," he
said. "Some people like their
homogenous substances with
suspended solids. Others do not."
(Typical response from a creamy
personality type, I'd say.)
Interestingly, while creamy
came out on top, crunchy took
second, and both came in third, a
forth category appeared near the
end neither. That person
claimed it was stale PB&J sand-
wiches wrapped in wax paper
while in elementary school that
ruined her.
The recalled Peter Pan in my
family's kitchen cabinet has been
replaced with a jar of, sigh,
crunchy Jif. And maybe "choosy
moms choose Jif," but "adven-
turous" and "immature" moms
choose Peter Pan extra crunchy.
Life just isn't the same.

Deep breaths
While eking a living out of
radio, print and television jour-
nalism for more than a decade,
I've reached out to the masses
with my words, something that


seems to come naturally.
When it comes to speaking to
a real live crowd though, I get
the shakes, a dry mouth and start
to sweat, which is why I'm both
honored and mortified that I'll
be Tuesday's guest of the
Friends of the Library books and
coffee series at Kirk of the Keys
Presbyterian Church in
Marathon, starting at 1 p.m.
Thankfully I'll be sharing the
podium with a writer with much
more grace than I, Rosalind
Brackenbury, an English novelist
and poet.
I'll be reading a few of my
better columns and will revive
some of my work from previous
jobs that are sure to provoke and
entertain.
Brackenbury will read from
her new novel "Windstorm and
Flood," treating the audience to
a world premier of the book.
Hopefully she's got plenty of
material to fill the program in
case I hyperventilate and pass
out at the start.

Natural elements
become art at
Harrison Gallery
Helen Harrison's
gallery at 825 White
St. spotlights the
height of the arts season with
her own work and that of
Deedra Ludwig and Perry
Arnold.
All three artists utilize nat-"
ural raw materials and trans-
form them into art. Kevin
Sloan, a creator of timeless
allegorical paintings, will also
be featured.
Ludwig, a widely collected
Washington state and New
Orleans artist, recently visit-
ed Florida as a residency
artist in the Florida
Everglades and before that
was a grant recipient resi-
dent artist at the Silka
Center.for Art and
Ecology in Oregon.
The artist is an
organic farmer also
and works with
non-traditional
materials over
photos for an
edgy organic
image. She
paints with
encaustic, dry
pigments,
plant materials,
ground stone,
graphite, gold,
copper leaf and soil.
For this show, she has incor-
porated pressed specimens of
Key West plant life.
Harrison's work quietly
transforms unnoticed woody
plant forms and other items
into elegant parlor pieces.

Premium rum:


Not the same old grog


Some made for
mixing, others
neat or on ice

t started as a black sludge, the
runoff by-product from refin-
ing sugar cane. Slaves on
17th century Caribbean planta-
tions found that molasses, the
polite term for the by-product,
fermented into alcohol.
Some time later, these alco-
holic by-products were distilled
to remove impurities. The result
was a higher concentration of
alcohol and the spirit we call
rum.
Rums started out heavy and
dark, a drink for impoverished
workers. In the mid-eighteen
hundreds Don Facundo Bicardi
Masso, a Spanish ex-patriot liv-
ing in Santiago de Cuba, experi-
mented with distillation tech-
niques, charcoal filtering, yeast
strains and aging in oak casks.
He produced a smooth, mellow,
light rum and in 1862 founded
Bicardiy Compafia in 1862.
Light rum became the pre-
dominant style until the 1980s,
when brand extension and seg-
ment marketing took over the
spirits business. Myers and
Mount Gay were early successes
in the higher priced dark rum
category.
Today, rum classification is
problematic because there is no
international set of standards
defining rum. Here are some
general guidelines:
Light rums, also called
"light," "silver" and "white"
rum, have little flavor of their
own and are generally used in
mixed drinks. Sometimes these
rums are filtered to remove color
produced by aging, assuming
they are aged at all. Light rums
are used in daiquiris, pifia

coladas,
rum punch,
rum and
Coke,
zombies
and about
a thousand
other con-
coctions in
which the
alcohol is
more
important
than the
actual fla-
vor of the


rum.
Gold rums, sometimes called
"amber" rum, are a bit more fla-
vorful. Their color comes from
aging in wood barrels often
the charred white oak barrels
that had been used to age bour-
bon whiskey.
Spiced rum Captain
Morgan's is the king here are
based on either light or gold
rum, the cheaper brands getting_
their color from adding caramel.
Spices are added to create a dis-
tinctive flavor.
Dark rums, also known as
"black" rum, are generally aged
longer than gold rums in heavily
charred barrels. Their color is
distinctively brownish. These
rums possess stronger flavors
and aromas. Dark rums are used
in mixed drinks to add flavor
and are the rums most often used
in cooking. Myers is one of the
world's most popular dark rums.
Flavored rums join the fla-
vored vodkas, gins and tequilas
on bar and store shelves. Infused
with coconut, mango, lime and
citrus flavorings, these rums are
typically used in tropical drinks
or drank straight, neat or on the
rocks.
Over-proof rum, usually 151
to 160 proof (75.5 percent to 80
percent alcohol by volume),

made the Bahama Mama, is the
preferred drink of college break-
ers throughout the eighties. I'm
told, though I have no direct
experience, that 151 rum has
contributed to the general lower-
ing of SAT scores in the U.S.
Dry rum is made from fer-
mented sugarcane juice, rather
than molasses. Called "seco" or
"ron seco," these Panamanian
inventions are stored in steel or
aluminum tanks rather than
wood.
Finally, to the subject at hand:
Premium rums. These boutique
brands are available in a variety
of styles but have one trait in-
common: They are carefully pro-
duced and long-aged rums, wor-
thy of sipping neat or with one
or two ice cubes. Using one of
these rums for mixing seems to
me an act of rum treason (unless
your trust fund had a very good
year).
To experience rum in all its
glory, try some of these:
At the top of my personal list
is Anniversario Reserva
Exclusiva, $28 to $35, from
Venezuela, the Pampero
Family's finest. Caramel-brown
in color, the Ron Afiejo is a
blend of rums that are aged in
oak barrels six to eight years.
Very smooth, faintly sweet and
spiced, with a touch of vanilla. I
get a slight sense of wood but
other tasters don't. This rum is to
be sipped and savored with
never more than an ice cube or
two.
When you can find it, a must-
try is Matusalem Gran Reserva
15-Year Old from the Dominican
Republic, $40 to $50. This full-
bodied dark rum blend originat-
ed in Cuba in 1872. There's
more spiciness than in the
Anniversario and a more pro-
nounced taste of oak. It's a com-
plex rum to be savored slowly.
Serious rum drinkers should
taste it without ice.
Appleton Estate produces a
number of rums, the best of
which is its 21-Year Old
Jamaican Rum, $89 to $100. The
rum is aged in barrels originally
used to produce Jack Daniels,
which gives the rum a slight hint
of bourbon. This is a richly fla-

'Miami Ink' coming to the Keys

By CLAUDIA MILLER
L'Attitudes contributor


Tattoo levers of the Keys -
listen up! You have the
chance to get a tattoo on
"Miami Ink," the TLC reality
show about the now-famous tat-
too shop on Miami's South
Beach. Now in its third season,
the artists from the "Miami Ink"
gang are planning a road trip to
the Keys.
"We wanted to do more
things out of the shop," said
George Gladstone, casting agent
for the show. "We want to
explore the world. There are
many art lovers out there who
want to get tattooed. Just
because they can't get to the
shop doesn't mean that they
shouldn't be able to get one."
At Miami Ink, the crew has
tattooed everyone from David
Arquette to David Lee Roth, and
the artists are now celebrities in
their own right. The shop is co-
owned by Ami James and Chris
Nufiez, and also features artists
Kat Von D, Chris Garver, Darren
Brass and Yoji Harada. The
show explores the personal lives
of each artist and their dynamic
interactions with one another. It
also illustrates the process that
they each go through to com-
plete a tattoo.
Many people get tattoos to
signify some pivotal moment or
event in their lives, and a good
deal of time in each episode is
spent on their motivations.
On one episode, a woman got
a tattoo of a winged penny in
remembrance of her father, who
believed in the value of saving
pennies. In another episode, a
customer asked for a Buddha
design to help cover up a scar
from scoliosis.
Those familiar with the show
will remember the last time the
artists headed out of South
Beach for an episode that aired
last January. James, Garver and
Nunez went to Oahu, Hawaii,
where they learned the art of tra-
ditional Polynesian tattooing.
Then they hit the beaches
with some professional surfers to
catch some waves. Producers of
the show plan on having the
artists explore the Keys while
they are down here the same
way they did in Hawaii.
What kind of client are they
hoping to find in the Keys?
Someone a compelling story, of
course, who wants a tattoo that
exemplifies the Keys lifestyle.
"We're looking for someone
who yells the Keys at us," said
Gladstone. "Anybody who lives


the Keys life to the fullest and
wants to show that through the
piece of art should contact us to
be considered."
So far, they don't know
which key will be their final des-
tination, since they are basing
the show around the person they
select. The artist will also be
decided later, but Gladstone said
that if there were enough inter-
esting clients, they might consid-


er expanding the show to include
more than one artist.
There's no free ride here -
you have to pay for your tattoo.
However, even celebrities often
have to wait for months to go
under the needle at the shop, so
this is a unique opportunity from
someone in the Keys.
Those interested can contact
Gladstone via e-mail at
georgemiamink@yahoo.com. In

Miami Ink and star
of the show with-
the same name,

who are looking to
get some new ink

story behind it all.


the e-mail, describe what kind of
tattoo you want, as well as why
it is important to you. Also,
attach a photo of yourself as well
as a rough idea of what you want
the tattoo to look like.
"The main criteria are good
art and a good story," explained
'Gladstone. "Everything gets
built around that. Without those
two elements, we can't build a
good episode."

its 25th annual Judged
Exhibition in the Main Gallery
and Producers Room of the
Marathon Community Theatre
during the production of "Gigi."
"This will be the 10th year
the exhibit has been held at the
MCT and it's a wonderful work-
ing arrangement with the the-
ater" said Ann Lynch, society
president. "The theater has beau-
tiful watercolors to decorate their
wall and the artists have a per-

viewers viewed the exhibit and
the society expects even more
this year. It will be open to the
public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The society anticipates close
to 80 original watercolors by
some 40 artists to be displayed

Key West. The paintings are for
sale with 20 percent of the sales
going to the theater as a gesture
of "Artists Helping the Arts," a
motto adopted by various
Middle Keys artist groups.

This year's Pigeon Key Art

ing with the relocation to
Marathon's Community Park.
Visitors and artists said they
were pleased with the altera-
tive venue, which, despite lack-
ing Pigeon Key's historic build-
ings and island environment,
offered lots of space, easy park-
ing, virtually no wait for
entrance and exit, and the same
quality arts and entertainment
the festival has gained a reputa-
tion for. A new addition to the
fest line-up, a kids' corer with
face painting and hands-on fish
printing activities, was a big hit
with the numerous families
there.

Antiques show at Martello


Dealers from all
over bring items,
appraiser on site
By FRAN MARCHBANK
L'Attitudes contributor

What better place than a
Civil War setting to
appreciate beautiful
antiques of many kinds?
This weekend, people will
have the opportunity to do just
that when more than 30 antique
dealers from around the country
present their collections at the
third annual Key West Antiques
Show.
The show takes place at the
East Martello fort, overlooking
the Atlantic Ocean near the air-
port at 301 South Roosevelt
Blvd. Since itis the only
antiques show south of Miami,
this event represents a special
opportunity for Keys residents.
The antique dealers who will
participate in this show come
from as far away as North
Dakota and Ontario. More than
a dozen are located in Florida.
Others come from
Massachusetts, Ohio, Michigan,
Connecticut, Pennsylvania and
Delaware. Each will have an
item in the silent auction.
The items on display will be
quite varied, so visitors will be
sure to find something that
appeals to them and their pock-
etbooks from exquisite
antiques to fascinating col-
lectibles.


Photo by MICHAEL HASKINS
This collection of clocks and barometers was a hit at last year's
show. These items were brought to the show by John Forster
from Barometer Fair in Sarasota.


People wandering through
the venerable, brick-covered
walkways of the old fort will be
able to enjoy the rich patina of
old furniture, lovely old paint-
ings and prints, unusual pottery
and delicately embroidered
linens. There will also be nauti-
cal items, wicker and bamboo
furniture, as well as other beau-
tifully maintained and restored
items from times gone by.
Cement statuary, planters and
urns, and other outdoor items
on display would fit nicely in a
tropical garden in the Keys.
Here visitors to the show
will also be able to find the per-

Try sophisticated rums


FIVE O'CLOCK / From 4

Also worth a try are
Appleton's V/X, aged up to 10
years, and Extra, aged to about
12 years.
Bacardi Ron 8 Afios
Reserve Superior, about $25,
from Puerto Rico. Softer and
more delicate than the above-
mentioned rums, Bacardi's
Ron 8 was once reserved for
the Bacardi family's private
enjoyment..It's a blend made
from Don Facundo's original
recipe and aging process. The
rums are charcoal-filtered and
aged a minimum of eight years
prior to blending. Another rum
to be tried neat.
Cruzan Single Barrel Rum,
from St. Croix, about $30.
Considered a "big" rum with


lots of punch, the Cruzan is a
creamier style with a long-last-
ing finish.
Mount Gay Extra Old, from
Barbados, about $35, starts out
sweet and finishes dry. Made
in a rich, slightly "earthy"
style, the Mount Gay can be
enjoyed neat or on the rocks.
Premium rums are chang-
ing rum's reputation, which for
years had been linked to
pirates and other scoundrels.
Today, there's no reason to
miss out on such a fine bever-
age. To paraphrase H.L.
Mencken, "No married man is
genuinely happy if he has to
drink worse rum [whiskey]
than he used to drink when he
was single."

The little lady with the
showcase of irresistible
desserts is Leigh Ann Card,
owner of Leigh Ann's Coffee
Shop in Marathon.
Celebrating its first 10 years
in business, her funky little
restaurant is a showcase of
delicious ethnic foods, gourmet
coffees (56 kinds, but who's
counting?), fine wines and
cheeses, and fresh-baked pas-
tries, bread and desserts.
The home cooking pairs
well with the old country par-
lor setting and shelves full of
antiques and gifts, like
European cappuccino
machines and specialty coffee
mugs.
Card is a local girl from an
Old Italian family that pre-
served generations of time-
honored recipes. Card puts
them to use by offering home-
made pastas, salads and
desserts.
Keys businesses rely on
Leigh Ann's for catered par-
ties, lunch boxes, cookie trays


and custom picnic baskets,
locals make it their place for
special events and anniver-
saries, and visitors return each
year to refresh old memories
there.
But wait, there's more to
come. Card is cooking up a
special project that will trans-
form her eclectic little place
into a coffee house of the past,
featuring live music and poetry


readings on selected evenings.
Stay tuned for more.
Leigh Ann's Coffee House
is at 7537 Overseas Highway,
next to the TLC Nursery
(across the street from the
south end of the Marathon air-
port.)
and is open Monday
through Saturday.

Conductor would


have liked his last ride


Past guest of
chamber orchestra
dies in Alaska
By MIKE DUNHAM
Anchorage Daily News

T he body of Gordon Wright
was found by friends on
the night of Feb. 14 on the
front porch of his cabin in
Rainbow Valley near Indian
south of Anchorage. The long-
time conductor of the Fairbanks
Symphony Orchestra appeared
to have died'from natural causes,
state troopers said. He was 72.
Wright lived alone in a one-
room cabin off the power grid
that was inaccessible by road.
Friends, including this writer,
brought the body out to the com-
munity parking area by sled, a
quirky and utterly Alaska exit for
a quirky Alaska character, a
musician and a wit who, friends
say, would surely have smiled at
the antics and affection that
accompanied his grand finale.
He was supposed to meet
composer John Luther Adams of
Fairbanks at Stevens
International Airport on
Wednesday afternoon. Adams
said he became concerned when
he did not find Wright waiting
for him. He called Wright's
friends in Rainbow, who went to
the cabin and found the body
about 9:45 p.m.
Wright was near his front
door, under a birch tree that
grows through his deck, which
overlooks Turnagain Arm. He
was dressed for the outdoors
with good boots, gloves and a
warm coat. Inside, his laptop
indicated he had sent his last e-
mails on Sunday morning.
SWith assistance from an
Alaska state trooper, Adams and
other friends and neighbors
placed the body in a pine casket


that Wright used as a bench.
Years ago, he had ordered it built
to fit his lanky 6-foot-6 frame,
and he was once carried on stage
in it for a Halloween concert.
But he apparently did not antici-
pate ending his life in such an
Alaska fashion, in the middle of
the forest, wearing thick-soled
snow boots, not dress shoes.
After concerted efforts, his
friends managed to fit him in as
he had planned and, setting the
box with its owner on a small
plastic sled, they alternately car-
ried and slid it about one-quarter
mile in the dark over a narrow,
snowy footpath to the parking
area.
Moving by flashlight under
the cold, starry sky, the party had
to reload the coffin several times
after the sled tilted on the twist-
ing trail, losing its cargo. It final-
ly got away from them at the
end, gliding 10 feet or so onto
the relatively flat-road as the
pallbearers helplessly slid down
with it, clinging to the coffin
handles and ropes. Adams called
it "Gordon's last sled ride."
In the parking area, the body
was loaded onto a pickup, then
taken down a steep, icy switch-
back to the Seward Highway
where personnel from Kehl's
Mortuary received it early
Thursday.
Wright was born on Dec. 31,
1934, in Brooklyn, N.Y. He
came to Fairbanks in 1969,
taught at UAF and conducted the
Failbanks Symphony Orchestra
until 1989. Mr. Wright, in recent
years, was an integral part of the
Key West Chamber Orchestra.
From Barrow, deep inside the
Arctic Circle, to Key West, he
once said he might have been the
only person to lead performanc-
es in both the northernmost and
southernmost locales in the
country.


In his later years he retired to
his property in Rainbow, situated
between two peaks of the
Chugach Mountains several hun-
dred feet above Turnagain Arm,
looking across the water.toward
the Kenai Peninsula.
He occasionally worked as a
guest conductor outside Alaska
and sometimes led the
Anchorage Civic Orchestra,
most recently in April 2005. His
last public appearance at a con-
cert came by accidenton Feb. 2
when the page-turner could not
get to a chamber music perform-
ance led by Wright's old friend,
violinist Paul Rosenthal. Wright,
who was in the audience, took
on the task of flipping the pages
for the pianist.
Wright's survivors include his
former wife, Inga-Lisa, two
sons, a daughter and a brother,
all living outside Alaska.
Services are pending.

'Nobody's Perfect'
opens in Upper Keys

The Community Theatre in
the Upper Keys presents
"Nobody's Perfect" tonight,
written by Simon Williams, pro-
duced by Patrice Messina and
Nancy Wells, directed by Tom
Butler.
The play stars Brad Shank,
Geri Luer, Casey Dressier,
Chris Ypsilanti and a cameo
appearance by a surprise guest
as the infamous "Willie
Briggs."
Leonard, the main character,
has submitted several novels to
a publisher of women's litera-
ture, but they have all been
rejected because he is a man.
Undaunted, he sends his next
work under a women's nom de
plume and it is accepted. Things
go hilariously awry when the
publisher requests an interview
with the author and Leonard has
to do some quick thinking.
Admission is $12.50 at the
door and early arrival is recom-


mended; seating is limited.
Curtain is at 8 p.m. tonight,
March 2 and 3 at The Lions
Club, mile marker 99.6 in Key
Largo (behind TIB Bank).

Gullick, Haden
win fellowship

Local artists Leo Gullick and
Richard Haden have been
selected as the 2007 winners of
the South Florida Cultural
Consortium Fellowship for
Visual and Media Artists, secur-
ing a prize of $7,500 each along
with 12 other South Florida
artists.
Haden creates trompe l'oeil
sculptures out of wood, elevat-
ing the usually prosaic model,
such as a battered bleach bottle,
to the status of an art object.
Gullick photographs details,
drenched in color, of objects
such as boats and rusting
machinery to create painterly,
graphic abstractions.
Both artists are represented
by the Lucky Street Gallery in


Key West. Haden is also repre-
sented by New York's Allan
Stone Gallery.
Gullick and Haden will par-
ticipate in a show, along with
the other fellowship winners, at
the Bass Museum of Art on
Miami Beach from July 20 to
Sept. 9.
The South Florida Cultural
Consortium is an alliance of the
arts councils of Palm Beach,
Broward, Miami-Dade, Monroe
and Martin counties.
