"I'm a professional and I'm a

May has been Health

March 2, 2004. Her resignation
is effective March 15.
May said she had been think-

she's perceived as a lack of

"Because of lack of funding,
we were forced to downsize,

By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

If you think all on-the-water
law enforcement is checking
sewage storage and issuing tick-
ets, think again. Sometimes it's
downright heroic.
Officer Steve Dion of the
Florida Fish ahd Wildlife
Conservation Commission is
among 99 nominees nationwide


to be named a First Responder
All-Star by the TV show
"America's Most Wanted."
Dion was nominated by Sean
Besson, whose life Dion saved.
Dion responded to a two-
boat crash off Stock Island in
2004. One of the vessels was
knocked up into the mangroves,
where Dion found it suspended
some 15 feet above the water.
"Officer Dion climbed up to
the vessel and found one man

But sampling shows
low counts for
Big Pine, south
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The presence of red-tide
algae south of Key West -
including concentrations con-
sidered high was confirmed
this week.
No fish kills or other prob-
lems have been linked to the
outbreak, but that could
change, according to the_
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Research Institute.
"Right now, Monroe
County is the [South Florida]
area most affected by red
tide," said Wendy Quigley, a
spokeswoman for the state
agency based in St. Petersburg.
Routine water-sample tests
taken Wednesday showed high
levels of the red-tide organism
from waters six miles south-
east of Key West.
That means more than 1
million cells of the red-tide
algae, karenia brevis, were
found in a liter of water.
"At that level, [human]
potential respiratory effects


and fish kills are possible,"
Quigley said. "Water may
become discolored."
The agency has received
reports of ocean-bottom organ-
isms having died near Key
West in recent days, but those
reports have not been con-
firmed or positively linked to
red tide, she said.
A water sample taken
Wednesday four miles south-
west of Key West showed a
medium concentration of red
tide algae (between 100,000
and 1 million cells per liter).
That could pose respiratory
problems for some people,
according to state information.
The extent of the red-tide
bloom was uncertain. :
Other samples taken this
week from Big Pine Key south
show the red tide algae to be
present in "very low" concen-
trations, or not present at all.
A Tuesday sampling three
miles south of the
Saddlebunch- keys, near mile
marker 15, did not find any of
the red tide.
Other samples taken near
Boca Chica Key showed medi-
um level concentrations.
"We have not heard of any
impacts," Quigley said. "But


its far enough offshore they
may not be plainly visible. A
boat could travel through it
and not know what it was."
A persistent red-tide bloom
has been tracked off Florida's
Gulf Coast for several months,
but it seems to have dissipated.
The Key West bloom "may
be remnants of that bloom that
have shifted to the south,"
Quigley said.
According to state reports,
the red-tide algae "produces a
toxin that can affect the central
nervous system of fish." The
research institute has linked
red tide to the deaths of marine
mammals, including dolphins
and manatees.
Red tides are naturally
occurring blooms, although
scientists remain uncertain if
pollution or other manmade
changes to the marine environ-
ment could have an effect.
Mote Marine Laboratory
conducts water sampling for
the state in the Florida Keys.
Visit www.floridamarine
.org for more.
An algae bloom is affecting
northeast Florida Bay, but that
bloom consists of blue-green
algae, which is not considered
toxic, but has caused harm to
the marine environment.


May leaving DOH for Little Havana


MAY / From 1

Rafael Penalver Community
Health Center in Little Havana,
part of the University of Miami
Jackson Hospital Network,
offered May a position as direc-
tor of preventative medicine.
At the time, she says she told
them she would consider it, but
that now she feels the time is
right to move on.
"I need to sell my condo in
Key West and get a place in
Miami," she said. "I'm not just
ready to start right away -
probably sometime in April,"
adding that she is still in negoti-
ations about a contract.
She earns $135,000 per year
at the Health Department, and
owns a house on Plantation Key,
from when she ran an Upper
Keys medical practice before
becoming director. She plans to
spending weekends there when
she moves to Miami.
"I'm really looking forward
to this position because it's
something I've always wanted to
do preventative medicine in
the Hispanic community," she
said. "I'm really going back to


&- ll my roots here,
., giving back to
the Cuban
Sa., community, I
still plan to
participate in
the Keys com-
; munity
I because I love
MAY it here. I plan
S to retire here
one day. I'll become a volunteer,
especially if there were to be dis-
asters, and assist in any way that
I can; we have very excellent
health department team."
Wendy Riemann, spokes-
woman for the state Department
of Health, says it's a lengthy
process to determine who will
replace May, and that it could be
sonfeone from within the depart-
ment or the private sector.
In the meantime, an interim
director will be appointed, she
said. The state Health Depart-
ment makes recommendations
to the Monroe County Com-
mission, and the two bodies
work together to appoint some-
one, she said.
Of the resignation, Riemann
said, "When [May] talked to [the
administration], it was decided


that it would be in the best inter-
est of the Monroe County Health
Department to have a leadership
change and her resignation
seems to be an amicable agree-
ment."
Local health officials don't
appear to be concerned that the
resignation will impact them
negatively.
"I think that she's set up a
structure so that it will continue
to run well," said Kim Bassett,
chief executive officer of
Fishermen's Hospital in
Marathon. "Under Dr. May's
watch, I think the emergency
response in our county ... has
dramatically improved. She
hired some key people that
helped get our health-care emer-
gency response organized,
working with the [Emergency
Operations Center]."
Bassett said she sits on vari-
ous committees with May and
that "every spare minute of her
time was spent finding addition-
al funding to continue the pro-
grams that are so vital to our
community, such as vaccine pro-
grams," and that "whoever takes
on her responsibility has some
pretty big shoes to fill."

Word ponders future


1a- a our past


WORD / From I

The job ultimately went to
Silverboard, city spokesman
Jeff Jensen said in a telephone
interview.
Word said the City Council's
vote didn't solidify his decision
one way or the other about with-
drawing his resignation from his
Islamorada post, which he sub-
mitted in January and is effec-
tive come April.
"I still need to evaluate some
things with the community and
[Islamorada] staff," Word said.
"As you know, there are
some people [in Islamorada]
that weren't happy with my job
performance, and I have to find
out if-that's changed."
Word was pressured into
resigning by some Village
Council members because of
dissatisfaction with his manage-
ment style. Word was also
blamed for problems with new
sewers on Plantation Key,
which the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection is
investigating.
But at the Village Council's
Feb. 22 meeting, one of his
harshest critics, Vice Mayor
Michael Reckwerdt, told Word
his performance had improved
markedly since the manager
submitted his resignation, and
he asked Word to reconsider.

alive, but bleeding profusely
from a severed leg," according
to a write-up on the "America's
Most Wanted" Web site.
"Officer Dion applied a tourni-
quet to control the bleeding and
worked to free the man (his
nominator) who had been
pinned under the boat's console
and was entangled in wiring and
cables."
Dion received the FWC's
Medal of Valor with Lifesaving
Award for his quick action, but
Besson nominated him for this
current national recognition.
"I can't imagine anyone in
that situation, with that type of
injury being so alert and so
calm," Dion said, according to
the write-up. "[Besson's] the
real hero."
FWC Lt. Roy Payne sang
Dion's praise shortly after the
accident.
"Officer Steve Dion was able
to remove the console and free
[Besson's] body from the wreck-
age," he said. "He used a rope .


for a tourni-
quet. He
saved his life.
P". Officer Dion
saved his life,
pulled him
out of the
mangroves."
"Some say
DION adversity
doesn't build
character, it reveals it, and this is
true for this All-Star nominee
and his nominator," says Dion's
write-up on the Web site.
"I am so proud of Steven,"
his wife Joyce Griffin wrote in
an e-mail she sent out Thursday.
The All-Star program is spon-
sored by "America's Most
Wanted" and Nextel. Anyone
wishing to cast a vote for Dion
can do it online at www
.amw.com/allstar/2007
/search.cfm.
The first responder with the
most votes when voting ends
April 15 will win $10,000 and a
weekend at the NASCAR
Nextel Cup Series All-Star
Challenge.


The four other council mem-
bers also said they wanted Word
to stay, but Councilwoman
Cathi Hill stressed at the meet-
ing that it was Word's decision
to make.
At a Feb. 26 meeting called
by the Village Council specifi-
cally on the situation with Word,
council members decided to
give the manager until the coun-
cil's March 8 meeting to say
whether he wants to keep his
job.
If he decides he still wants to
go, the Village Council will dis-
cuss criteria for a replacement
manager at a March 22 meeting.
Deputy Village Manager Ed
Koconis would be the interim
village manager until Word's
replacement could be hired,
Mayor Chris Sante said.
Jensen, Treasure Island's
spokesman, said City Council
members didn't offer reasons
for not selecting Word. The
council members were told to
write their choice on a slip of
paper, Jensen said.
Jensen had said it was
unlikely Treasure Island would
be able to satisfy Word's salary
requirements. The outgoing
Treasure Island city manager,
Ralph Stone, makes an annual
- salary of $106,362. Islamorada
pays Word more than $145,000
a year.

Eyewall shifts may help forecasters


Toughest part
is predicting
intensity changes
Associated Press

Watching for changes in the
inner eyewall of a hurricane may
help forecasters overcome one of
their most perplexing challenges:
predicting sudden strengthening
or weakening.
The ability to predict what
path a hurricane will follow has
improved dramatically in recent
years, but anticipating sudden
changes in intensity has
remained a problem.
And knowing a hurricane's
strength is vital to making deci-
sions about evacuating areas
when a storm approaches.
Now, a research team led by
Robert A. Houze Jr., a University
of Washington professor of
atmospheric science, is reporting
evidence that clouds around the
eyewall of a storm can cause sud-
den changes in intensity.
The findings, in the journal
Science, are based on analyses of
data collected in 2005 in storms
Katrina and Rita that devastated
New Orleans and portions of
Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana
and Texas.
The strongest winds in a hur-
ricane circulate in the cloud wall
that surrounds the relatively calm
and clear eye of the storm.
Taking measurements from
aircraft flying into these storms,
the researchers led by Houze
found that occasionally a "moat"
of clear air will form outside the
eyewall. Winds funneling toward
the center of the storm will then
form a new eyewall outside the


original one, cutting off the storm
center from the incoming flow of
energy and eliminating the old
eyewall.
Because the new eyewall is
larger than the old one, its winds
circulate more slowly as an
ice skater with arms extended
spins more slowly than one with
arms held close to the body -
thus reducing the intensity of the
storm.
But the new eyewall can then
begin to contract, spinning faster
and faster and increasing the
storm's intensity.
Using aircraft to study these
changes could help improve
forecasts of storm intensity,
Houze said in a telephone inter-
view.
He noted that while
Hurricanes Rita and Katrina
moved along similar paths, Rita
experienced eyewall replacement
and Katrina did not. Rita weak-
ened from a Category 5 storm to
a 3 or 4 after the eyewall was
replaced. Katrina was a 5 just
offshore but was somewhat less
powerful when it came ashore.
Study of the two storms pro-
vides a "kind of controlled exper-
iment provided by nature," he
said.
Now the researchers are delv-
ing into the detailed information
to see if they can determine what
caused the eyewall replacement
in one storm and not the other.
Right now, they're not sure
what triggers eyewall replace-
ment.
They are looking at a couple
of ideas, he said, "but nothing
definitive can answer this yet."
One possibility focuses on the
Strain bands that move away from

Deadline for VMS
is delayed again

A requirement for commer-
cial fishing boats in the Gulf of
Mexico federal snapper-grouper
fishery to install electronic
tracking devices has been
delayed for two months.
The deadline to install a ves-
sel monitoring system (VMS)
has been postponed until May 6,
National Marine Fisheries
Service officials said Friday.
A deadline in December 2006
was moved to March 7 to allow
more time for VMS installation.
A possible problem with a
VMS draining a boat's power is
being investigated, Fisheries
Service spokesman Peter Hood


said. "We don't want any fisher-
men to get stuck," he said.
There also is a backlog in
installations, he said. An
approved technician must install
the VMS.
Federal figures show 1,070
boats that commercially harvest
snapper and grouper from feder-
al gulf waters will need to install
the controversial devices intend-
ed to let officials know if a com-
mercial boat enters a no-fishing
area far from shore.
A commercial fishing group
is suing to overturn the VMS
requirement.
A third VMS vendor has been
approved after meeting federal
requirements. See the Web site

the center of the storm, he said.
There appears to be a critical dis-
tance from the center of a hurri-
cane that they cannot go beyond,
and some weather experts think


an accumulation of rain bands
can form the secondary eyewall.
Another possibility, Houze
said, relates to the pattern of
humidity. If the storm is very

moist in its interior but has lower
humidity away from the center,
the rain bands may be confined
within the humid zone, he said.

The 'formula' proves

costly to village

For a small municipality, Islamorada certainly garners some
big headlines.
The latest involves a federal court case that overturns the vil-
lage's formula retail ordinance.
For those who, haven't been paying attention, city fathers
established the ban on chain, or formula retail, stores in 1998,
a year after incorporation. The incorporation movement itself
was in large part based on keeping a proposed McDonald's
from setting up shop in the village.
In the years that followed, Walgreens had contracted with
Glenn and Virginia Saiger, owners of the Island Silver and
Spice department store, to acquire the property and open a
pharmacy. Publix, through a real estate intermediary, had also
explored acquiring the Coral Grill property with hopes of
building a scaled-down supermarket there.
The Saigers sued the village when the Walgreens deal was.
killed by the restrictive ordinance. The federal judge's ruling
orders Islamorada to pay the Saigers $600,000 plus attorney
fees.
For the Saigers, who lost a reported $2.65 million offer from
Walgreens for their department-store property, it's a somewhat
Pyrrhic victory.
The Village Coundil could decide to appeal the judge's deci-
sion. That would cost more money, with an outcome not very
clear.
Language used by U.S. District Court Judge James Lawrence
King has got to hurt, though, especially this:
"In general, preserving a small-town community is a legiti-
mate purpose; however, in this instance, the village has not
demonstrated that it has any small-town community to pre-
serve...."
Ouch.
And while the village leaders contemplate the prospect of
paying for an appeal to the Third District Court of Appeal, they
might also consider the costs they face with a city-hall design
that cost $400,000 and which they now no longer want. They
can't even agree where to put a city hall, or if they still have the
appetite to spend the big bucks needed for a new facility.
As reported in today's Keynoter, they have asked fellow
council member Dave Boerner, an architect and land planner,
to draw up plans for a different city-hall facility to be built on
a four-acre comer of the Founders Park property.
But using the park for a city hall has brought-strong opposi-
tion from Vice Mayor Michael Reckwerdt and others.
We suspect the debate could continue ad infinitum.
And Councilman Don Achenberg added this caution: "If you
can't afford to do something right, you don't do it."
If the village, waits long enough, who knows, there might be
a formula retail store going out of business and the property
acquired for less money than building from scratch.
At least it would save money on more legal fees and appeals
for what some already feel is a lost cause.

Hendrick showed conflicts in the past


EDITOR:"
Now all my questions on how Hawk's Cay
Resort was allowed to claim the fact that it was
grandfathered in for 440 additional hotel rooms
that turned into villas I call condos. I am not
sure of their legal name, but they are not hotel
rooms.
I attended a County Commission meeting
where this person stood up and told the commis-
sioners that Hawk's Cay (developer Pritam
Singh) was entitled to build these 440 "hotel
rooms," that they were grandfathered in.
I asked the gentleman his name. Guess what
it was? Mr. James Hendrick. I was new to this
so I asked if he represented Mr. Pritam Singh.
His answer was no, that he represented the coun-
ty. Wow, was I surprised. And when I questioned
the grandfather clause, I was told that was
already decided and not open for discussion.


At a future meeting, Mr. Hendrick recused
himself because he admitted he represented Mr.
Pritam Singh. But guess what attorney who was
in the same law firm as Mr. Hendrick was now
representing the public interest?
However, Mr. Hendrick was still present at
future meetings and it is evident to me he was
coaching his associate on critical issues by whis-
pering in her ear during the meeting.
We now have hundreds of rental villas on
Duck Key that were supposed to be hotel rooms
if the grandfather clause was legal.
I saw in the Keynoter that the prosecutor [in
Hendrick's corruption trial], Brenda Morris, was
quoted as saying that Mr. Pritam Singh was Mr.
Hendrick's "cash cow." It all makes sense to me
now.

Interest level of commission meetings: Priceless


EDITOR:
I attended the County Commission meeting
Feb. 21 in Key Largo.
At the end of the day, Item R1 came up: "A
public hearing to consider the request of
Northstar Resort Enterprises Corp to amend the
Land Use District Map Amendment from Sub
Urban commercial (SC) to Mixed Use (MU) -
(one public hearing required)."
Simply put, the company Northstar Resort
originally received permits to build 47 affordable
and 13 market-rate units. This is a good thing,
no? Aren't we supposedly in dire need for afford-
able housing? Yet, now Northstar wants to rezone
the property. However, as Commissioner George
Neugent put it: Should the compatly be allowed
this rezoning, it would no longer be obligated to
build any affordable housing. Why should the
county allow the rezoning?
Then, up steps to the microphone the repre-
sentative from Northstar who interjects... Then,
one citizen raises his hand from the audience and
asks to speak at the microphone for second time.
Mayor Mario Di Gennaro tells him he already
had his say. And the citizen objects, stating the
other party has spoken several times. Di Gennaro
denies this and does not allow the citizen to say
another word.
This is when I leave the room in disgust of the


Punish rude behavior
EDITOR:
Now would be a good time to remove cameras
from the County Commission meetings.
Based on the reports I've read, I can only con-
clude that Kay Thacker acted disrespectfully
[before being ejected from the Feb. 21 meeting]
and it's about time someone did something about
rude behavior in public meeting places.
Following up bad behavior by crying to the
American Civil Liberties Union to protect her
right to make an ass of herself in public only
makes it worse. She embarrassed herself on cam-
era and continues to embarrass herself with each
step she takes to draw attention to her actions.
Personally, I have no desire to see her litigate
our county into the poorhouse in an effort to save
face. It's a bad day for civil rights when the ACLU
has nothing better to do than threaten lawsuits
over poor manners and questionable people skills.

ongoing shenanigans that occur at these commis-
sion meetings. I cannot stay to witness, any more
of the imbalance developers are given vs. the
ordinary citizen who wants to have voice on any
issue. Also, when groups of people would clap
and show agreement with any of Di Gennaro's
decisions, he allows for the demonstration and
noise. When a group shows opposite of what the
mayor votes, he threatens to throw persons out
for disruption.
The following day, I found out resident Kay
Thacker had been thrown out for putting her
thumbs down to display dissatisfaction with the
Northstar decision. I sat next to Ms. Thacker
throughout most of the meeting, and never did
she give a verbal outburst. I heard reports from
county staff that Kay was out of control. I tell
you, this is far from the truth. Kay has also been
told by Di Gennaro that she is not allowed to
attend any more commission meetings and now a
citizen's rights have been violated for one man's
ego.
I hope more people will witness these monthly
commission meetings. This stuff is priceless (we
should use this for the Visa commercials, because
money can't buy this.

Editor's note: The county attorney has
informed Di Gennaro he cannot bar people from
attending the meetings.

Village Council has tough choice


EDITOR:
Well, it is the time of year that
Islamorada Mayor Chris Sante
hands over the gavel to his succes-
sor. The disturbing question is
who?
With three new council mem-
bers, one would think Vice Mayor
Michael Reckwerdt would be the
incumbent. After viewing
Reckwerdt on the televised council
meetings and in person, over this
past year, -I'm not sure that he can
handle the scope of the job. It
seems the vice mayor pays very
little attention to council meeting
protocol (interrupting speakers,
leaving his seat during discussions
and general disruption of the meet-
ing). I would also note his atten-
dance would indicate a lack of
interest as a council member.


Personally, I believe he is a
likeable guy and he has made
some contributions at a few meet-
ings, but to be put into the top
job? I do not think he can handle
the position of mayor with his
casual attitude. Being mayor is
serious business. So where do we
turn?
While I have not always agreed
with Chris Sante or many of the
council members over the years, I
feel he or David Boerner are the
only two who have shown any
leadership. By the process of elim-
ination, it seems the only ones left
standing are Chris and Dave.
Good luck to the council in
making this tough decision for the.
future of our village.

Church steps up for homeless


EDITOR:
The HigherLove Mission
Outreach would like to express our
gratitude to St. Columba Episcopal
Church for its recent donation of
socks and other items to assist the
homeless of the Middle Keys.
During times of inclement
weather, HigherLove opens its
doors to become a safe haven by
providing cots, hot showers and
homemade soup for those in need
in addition to the everyday servic-
es we provide.
With extra services comes extra
needs, and we are grateful that St.
Columba has always stepped up to
partner with us to help demon-


state the love of God to our
neighbors in need in Marathon.
A special thanks to Nancy
Lewis for calling and asking what
HigherLove might need during this
most recent cold spell.
We appreciate the thoughtful-
ness and concern for those less
fortunate in our community.
Love is the doorway through
which the human soul passes from
selfishness to service. Thank you
for demonstrating this love.

Hospital leaves patient waiting


EDITOR:
On Feb. 25, I entered the wait-
ing room at Fishermen's Hospital
with expectations of being seen for
chest pains and high blood pres-
sure. I am a 52- year-old female.
After being quizzed about my
insurance and giving them assur-
ances of being paid what my
insurance did not, I expected to be
seen in a timely manner. A nurse
or tech came and took my blood
pressure, asked some questions
and kindly told me I did not look
in distress and put me back in the
waiting room for more than an
hour and 30 minutes.
With the chest pain continuing,
I stayed in the waiting room won-
dering what was going to happen
to me. After the hour and 30 min-
utes, I decided I was not going to
seen in the near future, so I decid-
ed if I was going to die of a heart
attack, I would rather die at home
instead of the Fishermen's waiting
room.
I realize they were busy that
day. But when someone comes in
with chest pain and elevated blood
pressure, I think protocol comes


into effect with the seriousness of
the condition. I do not think that a
nurse or tech can offer a diagnosis
by looking at you.
I have always read that the first
hour is crucial for these types of
symptoms. As you can see, I did
not die. But I will never return to
Fishermen's again. I will take the
45-minute trip to Mariners
Hospital.
It is sad state of affairs to have
a hospital in your town but have to
go elsewhere for treatment. I guess
now I am wondering if they will
have the nerve to send me a bill.

Flight destination depends on convenience


EDITOR:
In the Fel. 28 edition, L.T. Ward wrote
about the high cost of flights from Florida
Keys Marathon Airport. The Keynoter
recently posed an online question asking
if people would pay more to fly into
Marathon. Unfortunately, the question
was ill-phrased.
The question should be, How much
MORE would you pay to fly into
Marathon? Renting a car in Miami and
driving to Marathon is a $50 two-hour


process, hardly worth the $400-plus dif-
ference mentioned in Ward's letter.
Most of the time, we can fly from
LaGuardia to Fort Lauderdale or Miami
for $200 or less, rent a car for $50 and
drive to our home in Marathon in two and
a half hours, or I could pay $450 per per-
son for three of us to fly to Marathon. Do
the math.

Delta can't build loyalty with high prices


EDITOR:
One does not need to possess an MBA
from Harvard to understand Marketing
101. If you have introduced a new prod-
uct into the marketplace, the price needs
to be very competitive with competition
and/or alternatives.
Case in point: Delta Airlines has come
back to Marathon. Great news.
Delta is charging three to four times
the tariff it gets for similar flights to
Miami and/or Fort Lauderdale. Bad News.
My daughter was excited about the
possibility of a direct flight from Atlanta
to Marathon until the online service spit
out the bad news: $833.50 to $753.50
roundtrip.'
Thus to experiment with this new
offering of Delta will cost the average
traveler $594.50 or $1,783.50 for a family
of three. Needless to say, they can fly into
Fort Lauderdale-or Miami, rent a car from
any major vendor, keep the car for their
vacation and return it to the airport for
less money.
Talk about getting in the ring with one
hand tied behind your back. How do they
ever expect to build up the volume on this
route if they don't use some creativity in
their short-term pricing? I'd say it's a
given that Delta will once again shoot
themselves in the foot before their route
obtains the traction it needs to compete,
not with other airlines but with Hertz,
Avis or Alamo!
If someone was to offer you the propo-
sition of saving almost $600 on a round-
trip flight by renting a car and making a
100- to 135-mile drive (that is often
referred to as one of the most beautiful


road trips in America), what side of the
equation are you coming down on? Duh.
Sorry, Delta, we are glad you are here.
We just wish you were serious about
building a loyal customer base, not just
trying to have a cash cow on day one. We
really wanted the airline option but most
of us have been making that ride to
Miami or Fort Lauderdale for years and I
doubt very few of us consider it worth
600 bucks to avoid.
Bob Guerin
Marathon



Airline costs are low

EDITOR:
Many people are responsible for
Delta Airlines flying into Marathon,
so I thank all of them. Especially I
thank our U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen, her diligent Miami chief of
staff Debbie Zimmerman and former
County Commissioner David Rice for
their unrelenting efforts on behalf of
all the residents of Monroe County.
I have found the Delta airfares I
have purchased in and out of
Marathon to be several hundreds of
dollars less than comparable tickets
in and out of Key West. This may not
always prove the case, but at least
now I have the choice of airports and
fares.
Thank you for bringing airport
choice to the Keys.

Transfer rights
could be worth
up to $200,000
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

Marathon Planning Director
Fred Gross said his department
has already received more than a
dozen inquires about the possi-
bility of transferring building
rights within the city after per-
mission to do so recently was
given by the state Department of
Community Affairs.
"A lot of them have been
from individuals, basically
phone calls, and a couple are for
the larger parcels in the city,"
Gross said. "I don't know it's
going to be all that much of a
rush. A lot of people are interest-
ed, but you have to establish
your TBRs first."
Although DCA gave its final
order Feb. 21, Gross said his
staff needs time to create appli-
cation forms and a methodology
for tracking the rights as they
are transferred. He expects to
begin accepting applications in-
April.
This is the second version of
the TBR ordinance, which was
rejected by DCA last July,
revised by legal staff and resub-
mitted after council approval in
November.
Essentially, a TBR is the abil-
ity to transfer residential and
transient building rights, which
exist with all currently built
homes and hotel rooms, to other
sites (if density and environ-
mental rules allow it), held onto

SHAL videoconferences
meeting on Tuesday

The Southernmost Homeless

at 10:30 a.m. using videoconfer-

Monroe County School District
Learning Center in Marathon
with others in the School

ence room in Key West.

for future use, or be sold.
The council envisioned that
owners of historically affordable
housing would be encouraged to
apply for affordable housing
building permit allocations
through the current rate-of-
growth ordinance and apply the
allocation to the unit, thereby
keeping it affordable in perpetu-
ity.
The property owner could
then move the market-rate allo-
cation that used to apply to that
property (sender site) to another
property (receiver site) or sell
the right on the open market.
Gross said he expects these
rights to cost between $100,000
and $200,000.
If the property owner doesn't
wish to place an affordable allo-
cation on the sender site, he or
she would have to pay $60,000
to the city to be used for afford-
able housing land acquisition or
construction.
Ordinance author Keith and
Schnars, a city consultant,
hoped the availability of market-
rate allocations through TBRs
would take pressure off the
ROGO system, and two
Marathon developers Brian
Schmitt with Coldwell Banker
Schmitt Realty and Amedeo
D'Ascanio of D'Asign Source
- think that indeed will happen.
"I think you might find a sit-
uation where somebody has a
duplex and they turn it into a
single family and take one right
away," Schmitt said. "Rather
than tear the structure down,
they enlarge their home. Then
they can sell or move that other
right."
"I think the least likely sce-
nario is someone comes in and
demolishes a nice affordable
unit and leaves the lot bare, sim-
ply because of economics" of
paying $60,000, Schmitt added.
Schmitt owns a few dozen
affordable properties but said he
has no specific plans to use the
TBR, nor did D'Ascanio, who
said -it will likely be used by
owners of over-dense properties
to redistribute units across the
city.
"Some of our clients may
have interest, but obviously they
have to have some money to
move things around,"
D'Ascanio said. "Only time will
tell, but the real estate market is
not good right now, and so I
don't think people are going to
be rushing to use it. I still think
it's a good ordinance."

By ALYSON CREAN

Monroe County Circuit Court
Judge Wayne Miller Friday
recused himself before a sched-
uled arraignment for Monroe
County Mayor Mario Di Gennaro
and County Commissioner
Sonny McCoy on charges of vio-
lating the state's Sunshine Law
governing open government.
The two were scheduled to
appear before Miller Friday
morning. Di Gennaro was repre-
sented by counsel; McCoy
appeared in court. The arraign-_
ment was rescheduled for April 2.
Both men are charged with
non-criminal infractions for a
conversation they had after a
County Commission meeting
Sept. 13.
State Attorney Mark Kohl
charged them in January with
violating the Sunshine Law by
discussing the upcoming selec-


tion by the commission of its
mayor.
Among its provisions, the
Sunshine Law prohibits members
of an elected board from dis-
cussing matters they may eventu-
ally vote on outside of duly
advertised public meetings.
Both Di Gennaro and McCoy
say the infraction stemmed from
an innocent conversation.
"I leaned over just after we
adjourned and said to Sonny, 'I
would not like to have your job,'
and he asked me if I'd want it in
November," Di Gennaro told the
Keynoter shortly after the inci-
dent.
McCoy said Thursday that he
has no need for legal representa-
tion in the case.
"I didn't do anything," he said.
Kohl said Friday that given
the visibility of the two commis-
sioners and the small-town nature
of the Keys, there is a likelihood
that other local judges might
choose to recuse themselves.
"It could go to the [state]
Supreme Court," Kohl said. That
court would then appoint a judge


to hear the case.
McCoy has faced allegations
of violating the Sunshine Law in
the past.
Last year he was exonerated
after an investigation by the State
Attorney's Office into a com-
plaint alleging McCoy spoke
with other commissioners before
firing then-County Attorney
Richard Collins.
In 2001, a journalist with The
Reporter filed a complaint alleg-
ing McCoy illegally conversed
with then-Commissioner Murray
Nelson outside a Tourist
Development Council meeting;
he was also cleared of that viola-
tion.
And in 2005, McCoy admitted
during a County Commission
meeting that he had been in con-
tact with, and was influenced by,
a fellow commissioner. Nothing
came of his comments.
In addition, McCoy is facing
sexual-harassment allegation
filed in November by Celeste
Bruno, a former aide to Com-
missioner Dixie Spehar. That
case is before the U.S. Equal
Employment Opportunity Com-
mission.

County attorney: No 'unbridled right' to speech


ACLU still

considering

Keys complaint
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Feb. 21 ouster of a mem-
ber of a Key Largo resident
from a County Commission
meeting has led to a flurry of
letters and a formal complaint to
the American Civil Liberties
Union of Florida.
Now County Attorney
Suzanne Hutton has complicat-
ed the question of civil rights


further by broaching the issue of
yellow shirts at a previous com-
mission meeting.
"I find it surprising that Ms.
Thacker, who complained about
the wearing of T-shirts with a
message as being disruptive at a
commission meeting earlier in
the month, would not realize
that her hand motions and arm
waving could also be deemed
disruptive," Hutton wrote in a
letter to the local ACLU chap-
ter.
The incident that garnered
the attention of the ACLU
occurred Feb. 21 when county


Mayor Mario Di Gennaro had a
Sheriff's Office deputy remove
Upper Keys resident Kay
Thacker from a County
Commission meeting when she
gestured a thumbs down to the
commission. Di Gennaro
warned her not to do it again.
She did, and was escorted from
the meeting.
The Florida Keys chapter of
the ACLU issued a letter
Monday asking for a formal
apology, and stating the removal
was illegal. Also Monday,
Thacker issued a formal com-
plaint to the state ACLU.
Late Tuesday, Hutton issued
her response letter to the local

ACLU.
Her reference to the shirt
incident happened Feb. 8 during
a workshop called to determine
whether the County Com-
mission wanted to fire County
Administrator Tom Willi.
At the beginning of the meet-
ing, Willi supporters handed out
bright yellow shirts with the
man's name printed on them.
Within minutes of calling the
meeting to order, Di Gennaro
told the audience to remove the
shirts for the sake of decorum.
"The public does not have an
unbridled right to exercise
speech and expressive conduct
in the commission meetings,"
Hutton wrote.
Thursday, the Keys chapter
of the ACLU fired a response
back to Hutton:
"We can judge Ms. Thacker's
conduct at the meeting only by
the videotape," chapter
President Sara Lister said, "and
it certainly does not suggest that


Village


her silent gesture was either
offensive or disruptive. What
the tape does suggest is that her
silent gesture was in fact the
particular basis on which the
mayor acted, and that his
response to that gesture was
intemperate and excessive. This
is regrettable, and quite incon-
sistent with the legal and behav-
ioral standards to which public
servants should be held."
Thacker says she has not
heard from the state office of
the ACLU.
"The complaint is still under
review," said Brandon Hensler,
director of communications for
the ACLU of Florida.
In the meantime, Com-
missioner George Neugent says
he intends to explore the issue
of decorum versus civil liberties
during a Wednesday workshop
of the commission in Key West.
The meeting begins at 10 a.m. at
the Harvey Government Center.


loses


chain-store suit


Judge orders

$600,000 paid

to the Saigers
Reporter Staff


A major portion of
Islamorada's prohibition against
opening mostnew chain stores is
unconstitutional and amounts to
"economic protectionism," a
federal judge ruled this week.
U.S. District Court Judge
James Lawrence King made the
determination on Wednesday
while ordering the village to pay
an Islamorada couple almost
$600,000, the interest on a $2.7-
million deal that fell through
because it presumably violated
Islamorada's Formula Retail
Ordinance.
King also ordered Islamorada
to pay the couple's attorneys
fees.
In 2002, Glenn and Virginia
Saiger sold their business, Island
Silver & Spice at mile marker
82, to Whiteco Interra Ventures,
which intended to establish a
Walgreens drug store and phar-
macy.
After buying the property,
Whiteco applied to the village
for permits to convert the
12,000-square-foot building into
the pharmacy. Whiteco repre-
sentatives reasoned an exception


to the ordinance should be grant-
ed because the pharmacy con-
sisted of a "professional serv-
ice."
In its ordinance, Islamorada
states that chain stores offering
"professional services, such as
real estate offices, banks or sav-
ings and loan establishments,
income tax preparation or
accounting offices, or the like,"
could be allowed to operate
within the village limits.
The Village Council denied
Whiteco's appeal in 2004.
But King wrote in his ruling
that because Islamorada allowed
Eckerd's to convert its mile
marker 82.4 store to a CVS in
2004, and the ordinance does not
remove existing chain stores
"whose proliferation interferes
with the ordinance's stated
goals," the part of the ordinance
that prohibits new chain retail
stores violates the Interstate
Commerce Clause, and is "here-
by declared invalid."
He also wrote that
"[Islamorada] is permanently
enjoined from enforcing those
invalid provisions."
The ruling doesn't affect
Islamorada's prohibition of new
chain restaurants, according to
Mayor Chris Sante, who added
the village might appeal King's
ruling.

MMC case getting dirty


Code case now
includes argument
over sand, dirt
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

An ongoing legal dispute
between the Marine Mammal
Conservancy and the owner of its
Key Largo site could get dirty.
Officials of the marine-mam-
mal rescue group traded 33 truck-
loads of fill dirt from the site at
mile marker 102.2 for two truck-
loads of sand, according to a
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
report filed Feb. 13.
JPB Properties of Colorado,
headed by John Powers, contends
the conservancy had no authority
to haul any dirt from the site.
"It's bizarre," Powers said this
week. "They have no right to
remove anything. We're demand-
ing its return."
Officials of the conservancy
could not be reached -at press
time.
The MCC currently is
involved with the attempted res-
cue of Castaway, a pregnant off-
shore dolphin. The dolphin was
brought to the Keys after two
mainland release attempts failed.
Deputy Charles Bon said in
his report that Largo Sand and
Rock Co. driver Diego Castro
acknowledged selling the dirt for
$9,000 to developers.
MMC President Robert.
Lingenfelser told the deputy that
the conservancy acted within its
rights as a leaseholder of the bay-
side site since 1995.
MMC has filed suit against
JPB, saying the firm refused to
honor a lease contract that offers
to sell the property to the non-


profit organization for $458,000
for use as marine-mammal reha-
bilitation site.
The company responded that"
MMC has defaulted on terms of
the lease.
Powers said he has been the
largest donor to MMC, and
helped create the organization as
a rehabilitation group not linked
to any businesses that hold dol-
phins in captivity.
Rick Trout, a dolphin activist
who worked as Powers' local
agent, was dismissed from the
MMC board.
"Now the very dirt beneath
my feet, the property itself, has
been hauled off," Powers said.
"This is a very sad day."
The Sheriff's Office conclud-
ed that the dispute over the dirt
should be referred to civil court.
"Upon reviewing all the facts
in this case, it is apparent the case
is civil in nature and lacks the
criminal element of intent to
deprive," Sgt. Eric Mixon wrote.
"This matter should be resolved
in a civil court of law."
Powers indicated additional
action might be taken.
The two sides will meet in an
unrelated matter March 29, when
a code-enforcement case started
in March 2006 returns to a local
hearing officer.
An inspection of the MMC
property is planned before March
29.
Code inspectors reported last
March that a partially completed
building at the MMC site was
being used despite not having a
certificate of occupancy. Specific
problems with electricity and a
missing handrail also were cited.
Lingenfelser said in
December that work on the struc-
ture would resume.


A new code-enforcement spe-
cial magistrate, Larry Sartin, will
hear particulars of the case for the
first time.
J. Jefferson Overby, the previ-
ous magistrate, has been removed
from code-enforcement cases
because of possible conflicts with
his job within the State
Attorney's Office.

Feds practicing
for mass migration

The Miami-based Homeland
Security Task Force Southeast is
scheduled to conduct a full-scale
exercise Wednesday and
Thursday with venues throughout
South Florida to exercise the
group's plan in case a mass
migration from Cuba occurs.
Hundreds of response person-
nel from more than 50 local,
county, state and federal agencies
are expected to participate. The
exercise, mandated by presiden-
tial directive, will help planners
validate the contents of the plan,


identify areas for improvement
and help responders become
more familiar with the plan and
more proficient in their response
efforts.
The task force is required by
Homeland Security Presidential
Directive Eight to exercise the
mass migration plan as part of
national preparedness.
Officials said the timing of
this year's exercise does not
reflect the timing of Fidel
Castro's health problems.
"In, fact the mass-migration
plan does not focus on any single
country; rather, it addresses mass
migration from any Caribbean
nation," the group said.

Adams principal
doesn't want
2007 closing
By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com

The Monroe County School
Board will meet at Gerald Adams
Elementary School in Key West
at 6 p.m. March 12 to discuss the
possibility of closing the school
with the School Advisory
Council and concerned parents
and residents.
The board scheduled the
meeting at its business meeting
Tuesday at Trumbo Point in Key
West. The principal of Gerald
Adams, Frannie Herrin, attended.
"My staff is very concerned
about the school closing," she
said.
She said she was "disheart-
ened" at the Feb. 13 board meet-
ing at Coral Shores High School
in Tavernier, when board member
Steven Pribramsky put forth a
resolution looking at the possibil-
ity of closing Gerald Adams.
His resolution, had it been
approved, would have initiated
research about closing the school
by the end of the 2007 school
year, including teacher and stu-
dent relocation, but would not

Parents concerned


about Sugarloaf housing


Security among
concerns, another
meeting's Tuesday
By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com

Parents voiced concerns
about building affordable
housing on the Sugarloaf
Elementary School property
during a public meeting with
the Monroe County School
Board Wednesday at the
school.
Those who spoke are con-
cerned about safety and traffic,
board Chairman Andy Griffiths
said in a phone interview the
next day, but the board intends
to address those concerns and
return for another meeting at
the school at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
At a Feb. 20 special board
meeting on affordable housing,
Ed Swift, a Lower Keys devel-
oper, described the potential
housing that could be built on
the Sugarloaf property.
On the two acres of proper-
ty, he said, there would be 36
units, including two- and three-
bedroom units that would cost
between $213,000 and
$289,000 to purchase. There
would also be rentals for
$1,095 a month and up.
Superintendent Randy
Acevedo said the housing


would be built about 200 feet
from the basketball blacktop at
the back of the school.
The housing would be built
where the small baseball field
is right now, board member
Debra Walker said, but the dis-
trict and Monroe County
recently did a joint project that
tripled the size of the athletic

fields between U.S. 1 and the
school.
Most people who spoke at
Sugarloaf Wednesday, Griffiths
said, don't want the housing.
"But people make more
noise when they're opposed to
something than when they're in
favor of it," he said.
Acevedo said some parents


he spoke to after the meeting
said they are in favor of the
housing.
"I don't want to downplay
any concerns," he said, "We're
working out of the box now."
Parents at the meeting were
uncomfortable with not know-
ing who is going to move into
the housing, district officials
said.
Griffiths said the board is
considering different options to
make the school safer, such as
24-hour security.
The board is also in the
process of determining how
much control it will have over
choosing what people can
move in, Griffiths said.
The board hopes to create a
way to restrict access to the
school, Walker said, possibly
by building a separate road to
the housing development.
Acevedo said he will work
with the board to find solutions
to these problems to bring to
Tuesday's meeting. There will
be no decisions made at that
meeting, Walker said.
A vote on the issue is on the
March 13 board meeting agen-
da, but Walker said she needs
more information before mak-
ing a decision.
"If I haven't been given
enough information by March
13," she said; "then I'm not
going to vote to proceed."


Skaggs is '06 teacher of year


She teaches
fifth-graders
at Stanley Switlik
Stanley Switlik Elementary
School teacher Roxanne Skaggs
has been named the Monroe
County School District's
teacher of the year for 2006,
district officials said this week.
A graduate of Western
Michigan University, Skaggs
continued post-graduate work at
Michigan State, the University
of Wyoming, St. Leo College
and the University of North
Florida.
Skaggs teaches fifth-grade
science, and Superintendent
Randy Acevedo says her stu-
dents have scored above the
state and county average the
past three years. During that
time, the highest county indi-


vidual scores
also came
from her
classes.
Skaggs
uses a popular
theme in her
class to create
a sense of
SKAGGS identity and
unity. Her
class motto is "It Takes a Whole
Crew to Sail a Ship." Her class-
room is the "ship" and students
have assigned themselves pirate
names. The Pirates' Code of
Conduct is displayed and based
on students' adaptations of an
authentic pirates' code.
She incorporates literacy,
reading, writing, speaking,
viewing and the arts into learn-
ing centers in her classroom.
Within each center, three levels


of activities and strategies are
provided for varying groups.
This provides differentiation
and student choice.
Center activities are based
on the reading text and at the
end of each unit, groups of stu-
dents share what they have
learned by presenting
PowerPoint presentations, skits,
newspaper articles, comic or
film strips, story boards, inter-
views, charts or drawings, time-
lines, songs, mobiles, puppetry,
dioramas or models.
Beyond the classroom
Skaggs has developed programs
to engage students in the total
learning experience. She also
provides curriculum support for
Stanley Switlik's Learning
Community for New and
Beginning Teachers and men-
tors teachers through the
National Board Certification
process.

off potential fire hazards, but
some residents say they are tak-
ing more than necessary.
"It seems like it's a little bit
more aggressive than they told us
it would be," said Sherry Phillips,
who has lived on Big Pine for 27
years and seen the cutting in her
neighborhood. "They said they
would cut out the dead pines and
dead palms, but we've got big
natives showing up in their chip-
ping piles. It doesn't make sense
what they've done. It seems to
me to be a little bit overkill."
But according to Refuge
Manager Anne Morkill, the cut-
ting is warranted and necessary to
protect homes that abut protected
lands susceptible to wild fires and
does not negatively impact the
environment.
Morkill said the refuge will
hold a second informational
meeting for residents (the first
occurred in January before the
cutting began) to hear input and
address concerns. The meeting is
scheduled from 1 to 3 p.m.
Wednesday at the Big Pine
United Methodist Church on Key
Deer Boulevard.
Controlled fires are normally
used to thin out dead vegetation
in the refuge, although that can't
be done around homes. So the
refuge has spent about $120,000
for contractors to cut down trees
around some 125 homes to pro-
vide a space for firefighters and
to cut off fuel that could feed a
wildfire.
Morkill said the cutting of
some live native hardwoods and
other species is unavoidable.
"There are some cases were
vegetation is really dense, and a
falling pine tree can take out
some live trees," Morkill said. "I
understand folks are concerned
we are taking out live vegetation,
but for all practical purposes, it is
necessary."
Chris Bergh, Keys program
director for The Nature
Conservancy, has been involved
with the project since the begin-
ning, and said contractors are
educated about native flora but
are also instructed to cut lower
branches of larger trees and com-
pletely remove smaller trees in
the fire breaks.
"I live in one of the neighbor-
hoods where most of this work is
being done," Bergh said. "From a
public safety standpoint, I think
it's the right thing to do, and from
a conservation standpoint, it real-
ly does no harm. That's the
truth."

Grand Key reopens


Bookings modest
2 months after
permits revoked
By CHRISTINE BRADEN
cbraden@keynoter.com

The DoubleTree Grand Key
Resort in Key West opened
Thursday evening to 27.8 percent
capacity after a two-month clo-
sure following the carbon
monoxide-related death of a
guest.
The hotel filled 60 of 216
rooms the first day it was allowed
to open since two days after the
Dec. 27 death of a Washington,
D.C., man, according to
DoubleTree Director of Sales and
Marketing Karen Thurman.
The city had revoked the
hotel's certificate of occupancy
and occupational license follow-
ing the death of Thomas Lueders,
25.
Hotel officials say they expect
bookings will gain strength over
the next month and into April.
"March is at approximately 56
percent occupancy and April is
73 percent booked right now,"


Doubletree spokeswoman Kristin
Wherry said. "The good news is
that the phones are ringing off the
hook."
Wherry said the hotel sales
team is visiting Key West
International Airport, taxi compa-
nies, attraction venues and restau-
rants to spread the word the
DoubleTree is now open.
Not all of the hotel is open,
however.
Room 416 where Lueders
died remains closed, as does the
boiler room next to it. That room
is thought to be source of the car-
bon monoxide fumes.
However, "Heartland [Hotel
Corp.] and the [DoubleTree] have
ensured that all areas have been
repaired, enhanced and inspected
by local and state officials to pro-
vide a safe and efficient reopen-
ing," Wherry said in an e-mail to
the Keynoter.
The- hotel has been closed
since Dec. 29.
It seemed Thursday reopening
projections were overly optimist
when city building inspectors and
the State Fire Marshal's office
still had still not received calls to


Sanctuary council

has some openings


inspect the hotel for renewed per-
mits by Tuesday afternoon.
However, inspections by the
city Building Department, state
Department of Business and
Professional Regulation and state
Fire Marshal's Office did take
place Thursday afternoon,
according to Key West Building
Official John Woodson.
"It's now probably the most
inspected building in the city," he
said.
According to both Woodson
and Steve Bassett, an REP
Associates engineer hired by the
Doubletree, the hotel has been
made safe by replacing and mov-
ing the boilers to the roof and
making other changes by upgrad-
ing or adding alarm systems,
sprinkler systems, smoke detec-
tors, heat detectors and carbon
monoxide detectors.
As of Friday afternoon, offi-
cials at the Monroe County State
Attorney's Office still had not
been contacted by the Key West
Police Department or state Fire
Marshal's Office to review their
individual investigations for
"criminal culpability," according
to State Attorney's Office
spokesman Matthew Helmerich.
Lueders' family has hired an
attorney, and others have sued
DoubleTree's parent company
saying they, too, were sickened
by carbon monoxide when stay-
ing at the hotel.

According to the best esti-

realm of $503 million to finish
sewering the Keys.
State Rep. Ron Saunders

sewer summit in Marathon.
"Every time we meet, the dol-

overall numbers to lobby
Congress into finally allocating
the $100 million it once promised
for Keys sewers.
According to local mayors
and administrators, that $503
million breaks down as follows:
$170 million for unincorpo-
rated Monroe County.
$143 million for Key
Largo,
$110 million for
Islamorada.
$58 million for Marathon.
$15 million for Key West.
$7 million for Ocean Reef.
The primary focus of the
meeting, however, was trying to
decide what local projects are
first in line for a possible $20 mil-
lion from the state in the coming
budget year.
The Legislature convenes for
its two-month annual session
Tuesday, and Gov. Charlie Crist
has included the money in his
proposed budget. However, that
budget is open for change during
the legislative session.
Despite the admonition, the
individual requests added up to
well over the $20 million Crist
has proposed. Marathon Mayor
Chris Bull started out asking for
"almost $20 million," though he
later lowered the request to $14,4
million.
County Administrator Tom
Willi said joint projects with the
Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority
would add up to $42.5 million
during the next 18 months.
"We would like to see from
the state $8.5 million," Willi said.
Islamorada Mayor Chris Sante
said his community could use $8
million. Ocean Reef asked for
$2.5 million, Key West requested
$3.5 and Key Largo is looking for
$15 million.
"The city of Key Colony
Beach has always stepped back to
let the other entities go forward,"
said that community's mayor,
Clyde Burnett. "We would like a
little piece of the pie: $150,000."
Key Colony is already sewered.

Congress coming
The Florida Key National
Marine Sanctuary and Sanctuary
Friends Foundation of the Florida
Keys hosts Republican U.S. Rep.
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who repre-
sents the Keys and part of Miami-
Dade, and Rep. Debbie
Wasserman Schultz, a Broward
County Democrat who sits on the
powerful House Appropriations
Committee, from 2 to 4 p.m.
March 11 at the Florida Keys
Eco-Discovery Center at the
Truman Waterfront.
The program is about Florida
Keys water-quality projects,
including sewers.

Village hall proposed for Founders, again


Dispute arises
over need, cost
and the location
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

After scouting various loca-
tions throughout the village lim-
its, the latest proposed location
for an Islamorada city hall is back
at Founders Park.
The search process, as well as
an expenditure of more than
$400,000 for an architectural
design ultimately rejected by the
Village Council earlier this year,
has been a point of contention
among the five-member elected
body.
At the Feb. 22 Village Council
meeting, three of the five voted to
have council member and archi-
tect Dave Boemer draw up pre-
liminary plans for a building on
the park property at mile marker
87 bayside. But even Boerner
said he's not happy with the
choice, but said it's the only
viable option Islamorada has.
"Given the information we
have now, we're stuck with
Founders Park," he said: "There
are no 4-acre sites in the urban


center."
Boerner said any building
used as a municipal center would
need between 12,000 and 14,000
feet of space.
Several locations of the vil-
lage's "urban center" on Upper
Matecumbe Key were consid-
ered, but council members said
many of these buildings are too
old and not adequate to house the
village's staff.
Also, some council members
said those buildings would better
serve the village as places of
business.
Mayor Chris Sante also said
he's not happy about using
Founders Park to house a city
hall, but options are limited.
"It's my eighth choice, but
Founders Park" is one of the few
places that can meet the village's
needs for a municipal center.
But Vice Mayor Michael
Reckwerdt not only remains
adamantly against using
Founders Park for the site, he said
the village's track record on capi-
tal projects and its financial situa-
tion render building a city hall an
expense not worthy of Isla-
morada's near-term priority list.
"We do a terrible job at getting

measured 6.5 feet, not 13 feet as originally reported.


things done," Reckwerdt said.
"We should stop now, fix our
problems and move forward."
Reckwerdt was referring to a
proposed fire station, which has
been in planning for years, and
renovations to the village's public
marina at the park, Plantation
Yacht Harbor Marina.
Reckwerdt also said that since
Islamorada was incorporated
only in 1997, building a city hall
may not be an earned right.
"You don't get to catch up
with communities that are hun-
dreds of years old in 10 years. We
have to look long and hard at our
options," he said.
It was accepted among all the
council members that the project
could cost as much as $10 mil-
lion. Sante said the village has the
money and should spend it now
to build the facility at Founders
Park.
"We have limited amount of
money, and I'd rather see it given
to bricks and mortar than buying
land. I don't want to take away
any commercial property," he
said.
Councilwoman Cathi Hill said
Founders Park's elevation makes
it the right spot for the project.
Councilman Don Achenberg
didn't go as far as Reckwerdt in
saying city hall shouldn't be built
right now, but did agree it should
not go. in Founders Park.
"The best place for a village










f


municipal center is not a park,"
he said. "If you can't afford to do
something right, you don't do it.
When you're talking millions of
dollars, you don't settle."
Since the council was split 3-
2, Reckwerdt said there should be
no movement on the proposed
project, citing Sante's past state-
ments that major expenditures


should require at least a 4-1 vote.
But Islamorada's fire chief,
William Wagner II, said having a
permanent municipal center is
"needed to maintain the continu-
ity of government if we get wiped
out by a major hurricane. If we're
in the building we're in now [at
mile marker 81.9 bayside],
there's going to be problems."

Sewer pipes to move to save


By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com


The Marathon City Council
met in regular session Tuesday
and took the following actions:
Directed engineering and
public-works staff to move the
installation of sewer pipes as far
away from residential properties
in the Crane Hammock subdivi-
sion as possible without ventur-
ing into the middle of streets.
Several residents approached
the council when they learned
many trees and other vegetation
would have to be removed to
accommodate the proposed
sewer design.
City Biologist Darla Tanner
said there are fewer than 20
parcels with native plant species
that would be affected by the cur-
rent designs, and fewer than six
are heavily vegetated.
However, several property
owners, including current
Monroe County Commissioner
George Neugent and former
County Commissioner David
Rice, spoke out against the plans.
Neugent lives in Crane Point.
The council's direction was to
employ the strategies to all areas
of Marathon where planted trees
would be affected.

TDC explains its charge


Goal is getting
affluent tourists
down to the Keys
By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com

Keys marketing officials are
working to be sure their target
audience adults age 35 to 64
who make more than $75,000
annually know about the
Keys.
Officials of the Monroe
County Tourist Development
Council and marketing represen-
tatives told local business owners
about the goals for Keys' market-
ing at a meeting hosted by the
TDC Wednesday in Key Largo.
TDC Marketing Director
Harold Wheeler, District 5
Advisory Committee Chair-
woman Ronnie Harris and
Tinsley Advertising's John
Underwood explained to Key
Largo Chamber of Commerce
members at the Marriott
Convention Center how Keys
advertising dollars get spent.
Money the TDC uses for
advertising the Keys as a tourist
destination comes from a bed tax


paid by visitors who stay in
hotels and other short-term
accommodations. A portion of
the revenue goes to five district
advisory committees in the coun-
ty to market each region of the
islands.
Since 1986, Tinsley Advertis-
ing has been the agency contracted
by the TDC to promote Keys
tourism with ad campaigns.
Tinsley staff explained how, where
and.what the firm advertises.
The target audience, accord-
ing to the presentation, people
who can afford to spend signifi-
cant vacation or retirement time
in the Keys.
Tinsley uses newspapers, con-
sumer magazines, Web, cable tel-
evision, radio and billboard ads
for in-state, out-of-state and inter-
national advertising campaigns.
"We're attacking from all
angles," Underwood said.
The advertising focuses sea-
sonally on different areas of the
United States, Underwood said.
In fall, winter and spring,
Tinsley targets the Northeast,
Midwest and parts of the
Southeast. In.the spring and sum-
mer, ad dollars are shifted prima-


rily to the drive-down market in
the Southeast and Florida.
The Tinsley group also
showed a video of its varied
Florida Keys advertisements, all
of which displayed the "Come as
you are" slogan.
Many 6f the advertisements
promote eco- and adventure
tourism, including scuba diving,
kayaking and fishing, which the
video narrator called "adventure
add-ons to a luxury vacation."
The campaign for Florida res-
idents concentrates on the wed-
ding and honeymoon markets,
corporate retreats, and the gay
and lesbian market.
For Key Largo, Tinsley
showed ads piggybacking on
South Florida destinations, with
the message that travelers should
head to the Keys before or after
attending major events.
Some of the ads were geared
toward the NASCAR market,
with slogans like "Gentlemen,
turn off your engines," and "Shift
into neutral."
Keys ads also appeared on
Expedia's Web site before the
Super Bowl at Dolphin Stadium
on Feb. 4. The ads pictured a
football and the headline "Kick
back in Key Largo."


Community Park.
Activities including small
concerts, private parties such as
wedding receptions, retirement
banquets, class reunions and
other private parties will have a
charge of $100 per hour with a
$100 cleaning deposit.
Commercial, for-profit, activi-
ties will cost $1,500 per day,
$700 per day of setup, $250 per
vendor and a $1,500 cleaning
deposit.
Heard a presentation by
members of the city's Code
Compliance Board asking for
clarification on the charging of
fees to residents with code cases.
The council voted that a $250
administrative fee was mandatory
for every case coming before the
code board, although an addition-
al $250 would be waived if the
resident brings the property into
compliance within a certain
amount of time.
Heard from Puto that he has
assigned Deputy City Manager
C.J. Geotis to lead a city cus-
tomer service committee in an
effort to streamline the permitting
process.
Approved an amendment to
a major conditional use for the
redevelopment of the Grassy Key
Marina.

the states resolution.

Cuban indigenous plants, on
the 20-acre landfill behind the

Services funding

could remain flat


5% proposal
is rejected due
to budget crunch
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Providers of a variety of
human services across Monroe
County are going forward with a
somewhat shaky idea of what
kind of funding they can expect
from Monroe County in fiscal
year 2007-08.
On Feb. 21, the County
Commission approved funding
the services at the same level as
the current year $2.3 million
with the caveat that it could
change during the county's btidg-
eting process.
"The Human Services
Advisory Board needs to have an
idea of how much they will have
.to divide among the members,"
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
said.
The county usually begins
talking budget in March, though
the tough decisions are not made
until July. The budget is usually
finalized in September and takes
effect Oct. 1.
The leaders of nonprofits say
that makes it tough because they
need to know early how much to
expect so they can pursue match-
ing grants.
"The advisory board was
happy when we went to 5 per-
cent," board Chairman Todd


I SO ILSRIE


Firm said. The commission in
2005 decided to allocate 5 per-
cent of the general fund to human
services. However, they rescind-
ed the concept last year.
The county's general fund was
frozen in January because of a
potential $1 million shortfall by
the end of this fiscal year, and the
commission agreed that it would
be tight in 2008.
"This item came to me earlier
this month with the 5 percent"
proposal, county Finance
Director Sal Zappulla said, "and I
refused to sign it with the 5 per-
cent because we're in a general-
fund pinch."
Zappulla recommended the
commission approve funding at
the $2.3 million level "or lower."
Representatives of. agencies
that provide services for every-
thing from abused children to the
homeless told the commission
they would find a way to operate
without expecting an increase in
county funding for 2008.
"As taxpayers in Monroe
SCounty, we are very appreciative
of keeping the cap on spending,"
said Wendy Coles, executive
director of the Southernmost
Homeless Assistance League.
"However, should you chose to
lower the funding, you would be
impacting the lives of thousands
of clients and hundreds of staff."

individual agency's interests.

By CHRISTINE BRADEN
cbraden@keynoter.com

The .Florida Keys Com-
munity College nursing pro-
gram has sustained controver-
sy the past two years, and a
lawsuit filed against the
school by the former nursing
director shows the problems
aren't over.
Former Director Juli
Daniels sued the school Feb.
21, alleging it-owes her back
pay. The suit was filed just as
new Director Michael Tomak
comes on board.
The suit claims the college
should pay Daniels as outlined
in her contract.
Last year, Daniels signed
the annual contract worth
$87,553 for a period between
July 1, 2006, until June 30,
2007. However, according to
her lawsuit, Daniels stopped
receiving her bi-weekly pay-
checks on or around Nov. 9,
2006.
"As a result of its acts and
omissions, [the college]
breached its contract with

tied to recover," it says.
The lawsuit alleges two
things: Breach of contract and
failure to pay wages due.
The college has not yet
been officially served with the
suit, filed in Monroe County
Circuit Court.
Daniels, who has demanded
a jury trial, asks the college to
pay her an unspecified sum in
back wages, compensatory
damages'and legal costs.
In October, the school
administration requested
Daniels' resignation after her
assistant issued a formal com-
plaint against her Oct. 2. The
Human Resources Department
followed up on the complaint
and found several more
staffers who supported the
claim that Daniels created a
hostile work environment.
After initially rejecting any
request to resign, Daniels
finally resigned Nov. 13, at
which time she no longer
worked on school property.
The resignation became effec-
tive Dec. 31.
Daniels' resignation fol-
lowed the 2005 resignation of
the director before her, Coleen
Dooley, whose position, was
reclassified, resulting in her
losing tenure.

Chicken store staying open

Sheehan gets
help with
relocation
By STEVE SANOSKI .
Keys Sunday reporter
ssanoski@keynoter.com -l.


Key West chickens can cluck
a collective sigh of relief The
Chicken Store has been saved.
Katha Sheehan was consider-
ing closing the eclectic chicken-
themed store earlier this year
when she was given six months
to vacate her location at 1229
Duval St. The aging Conch
house she's inhabited since 2000
is set undergo redevelopment
into rental properties this June.
All-but-sure heightened
property rentals in Key West
would keep her from finding
another affordable place in Key
West to house her retail store
and chicken rescue center.
Sheehan hoped for the best and
prepared for the worst.
Though she's been a resident
of the Southernmost City for 23
years, Sheehan even considered
taking her chickens to the main-
land. However, the same day the
story of Sheehan's predicament
recently ran in the Keynoter, she
was contacted and saved by a
fellow animal lover and long-
time Keys resident.

ing in Key West since 1958, and
said she couldn't stand to see

The Key West Chicken Store, 1229 Duval, is forced to move
because of a real estate deal, and owner Katha Sheehan had
thoughts of leaving the Keys. But now, she's found a place on
Southard in Key West and plans on moving her business, and
the chickens, soon.

Rylander said. "I've always had
respect for all animal life in gen-
eral. I don't care if it's a cat, dog
or chicken it's alive and
we all have to respect life."
Rylander offered Sheehan her
two-story Conch house rental on
Southard Street for the same rent
she's currently paying.
"She's our angel. I really
don't know what we would have


done without her," Sheehan said
of Rylander. "We'll get to keep
that feel of an old-timey Key
West Conch house with sawdust
on the floor and chickens roam-
ing around."
The new location is under
renovation now, and Sheehan
hopes to have The Chicken Store
relocated there by June. Located
between Duval and Whitehead
streets, the new store provides
Sheehan roughly twice the
amount of floor space as she's
had for the past seven years on
Duval Street.
"We're hoping to give the
store an even more natural feel
for the chickens," Sheehan said.
"There's an excellent space

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO

SELL YOUR HOME?
The best home selling climate is when employment in the area is healthy.
Summer is a particularly good season for selling.
Pricing a home realistically is important, regardless of what time of year it is
placed on the market. Ask your real estate agent to tell you the selling price
of nearby homes similar to yours. Check the average number of days on the
market for your area. Strategic timing can sometimes produce the best price.
Don't assume that a rising market will continue indefinitely. It might be bet-
ter to take your profit now rather than continue to wait. If your home has
appreciated substantially, find out whether you meet the two-year test to
ensure you can take up to $250,000 in exemptions if you're single, or
$500,000 if you're married.
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

ate and Board Member of Leadership Monroe County, and a member of

Why the Y? See for yourself

New gym opens
on Duval with
new programs
By CHRISTINE BRADEN
cbraden@keynoter.com


Despite a few finishing
touches left undone on its new
gym, the YMCA of Key West
has begun to welcome stu-
dents.
The grand opening of Key
West's newest gym is off to a
slow start, but it's a start
nonetheless, Program Director
Tezah Waters said.
"We are a nonprofit in the
true sense of the word," Waters
said. "We've counted on the
community to help us out and
they have come through for
us."
That community attitude is
the reason YMCA staffers have
chosen to open their programs
to members despite a delay in
an official opening date.
"We needed to get the pro-
grams started," Waters said.
Though an exact grand
opening date has yet to be set,
Waters said, the YMCA want-
ed its members to be able to
utilize the gym since it already
has to pay a mortgage on the
space.
The gym, once an art
gallery at 825 Duval St. No. 3,
is being used for karate class-
es, yoga, dance and child-care
programs, as well as gymnastic
team training on new equip-
ment. It will soon expand its
program load and also include
an adult boot-camp-style fit-
ness training class taught by a
military trainer Mondays to
Thursday from'6 to 7 p.m.
"It's going to be.a no-non-
sense, no-wimps-allowed pro-
gram," Waters said. "It's for
people who really want to get
into shape."
The YMCA staff is taking
suggestions about other pro-
grams that its members would
like to see when the new gym
is fully operational.
Over two months, volun-
teers from throughout Key
West and the local military
turned the empty space into a
place both children and adults
can utilize.
"Gyms have always been a
core program for YMCAs
across the country," Waters
said. "There is a need now that
the YMCA has been honored
to fill."


The gymnastics team from the YMCA of Key West practices stunts near the organization's new
facility at 825 Duval St. Members are Lauren Demchak, Taylor Barrios, Isabelle Valdez, Heather


Henson and Francescha Garcic

Despite all the help to get
the gym up and running, the
YMCA still has some work left
to, do including, painting,
shelving and air conditioning
work.


"It's definitely a useable
space and there are not any
safety hazards or anything like
that," Waters said. "We just
want it to be completely done
and beautiful when the public


is invited to the. grand open-
ing."
To learn more about the
YMCA or to volunteer, go to
www.ymcaofkeywest.org
or call 295-9622.

ture, and difficult to get boat
tools can also be found at the
nautical market.

program, the kids will be
given rods, reels and a tackle
box, and be shown how to cast
from the pier.

club's scholarship fund that
distributed more than $40,000

. The ball, fouled straight
down, bounced up from' the
plate and struck Key West
High School hitter Kristen
Babich hard in the protective
cage of her red helmet.
After reassuring her coach
she was OK, she stepped back
into the batter's box and, two
pitches later, lined a single to
center field that scored two
runs.
As the throw came in, the
long-legged junior loped into
second base, her flapping long
ponytail obscuring the 23 on
the back of her red jersey.
This happened during a six-
run second inning, one of two
big innings the Conchs had in
a 17-0 victory against St.
Brendan in a District 16-4A
softball game Wednesday
afternoon at Key West's Back
Yard ballpark. The game was
stopped after four and a half
innings by the 10-run mercy
rule.

Westwood Christian went 4-
for-4 with two home runs and
five RBI.
Marathon coach Luis Leal
said it was the best offensive
performance he's seen at
Marathon, although it wasn't
too surprising coming from


the junior who led the
Dolphins in every offensive
category last season.
Junior J.P. McCabe has also
been finding his stride at the
plate, and the Dolphins will
likely need that offense to
keep up with Coral Shores
slugger Rafael Medina.
"There's no secret about


him. He can swing the bat,"
Leal said. "They are a well-
coached team. They are going
to make the routine plays, so
we have to play a good sound
fundamental game to be able
to beat them."

Keys rivals in softball clash


The Dolphins
and Hurricanes
hit Tavernier field
By KEVIN WADLOW
and DAVID BALL
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Either Coral Shores or
Marathon High School could
double its softball win total in
Monday's diamond clash in
Tavernier.
Both teams have won once in


the early season, coming into the
local rivalry game.
Both the Lady Hurricanes and
Lady Dolphins won their respec-
tive games Tuesday.
The Lady Dolphins (1-1)
scored a commanding 12-1 win
over Westwood Christian, led by
a strong complete-game perform-
ance by pitcher Megan Gardner.
"I'm not really sure what to
expect from Coral Shores this
year," said Dolphin coach Jason
Frank, who takes a young


Marathon team to the Upper
Keys.
The Lady Canes (1-3) used
lessons learned in three opening
losses to beat a decent Carrollton
team, 6-4.
"That was a good win against
a good team," said Paul Grewe,
who shares Coral Shores coach-
ing duties with Mike Young. "We
thought our time for a win was
coming."
Last year, Coral Shores strug-
gled all season after running out

Lady Fins cream Westwood


Softball squad
steals 19 bases
in first two games
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
softball team's offense was
clicking Tuesday, -as the Lady
Dolphins unloaded on District
16-2A foe Westwood Christian,
12-1, in Miami.
Marathon coach Jason Frank
said the win is exactly what his
team needed as it heads into a
tough home game against dis-
trict-power Westminster Chr-
istian on Friday (results
unavailable at press time).
Marathon (1-1) hosts
Ransom Everglades at 1 p.m.
today at Stanley Switlik


Elementary School before
heading to Islamorada to play
Coral Shores at 4 p.m. Monday.
Frank said this stretch of
games will be a barometer for
how the Lady Dolphins stack
up against tough teams this
season.
"We are playing well, and
all the girls know their roles
and do what is needed," Frank
said. "But we have to play
smart. In two games we've
made only one error, and that's
what we need to keeping
doing."
Tuesday, the Lady Fins exe-
cuted smart base running and
scored at will against the
Warriors. Marathon has now
stolen 19 bases in its first two
games.

who have picked up the team
with their inspired play. The
other is Jianna Hernandez,
who had two doubles
Wednesday.
Both have impressed assis-
tant coach Frank Ratcliff, who
tutors the Conch batters.
"She's been stinging the ball
in practice and she tracks down
everything in the outfield,"
Ratcliff said of Babich, who
had three RBI and was on base
four times against St. Brendan.
"She's gone from the JV to the
varsity on her own. It's maturi-
ty." -.
Hernandez, a junior, started
the season in left field but was
moved to second base for
Wednesday's game to shore up
the defense.
"She's a player," Ratcliff
said. "She has no fear. She's a
sparkplug who doesn't make
excuses and plays hard."
The victory for Key West
was its third in a row and
improved its record to 5-3
overall and 1-0 in district. The
Conchs have scored 41 runs in
the past three games and will
next play host to Monsignor
Pace at 5 p.m. Tuesday.
The 17 runs Wednesday
came on just 10 hits as the
Conchs took advantage of four
St. Brendan errors and five
walks issued by pitcher Tamara
Hidalgo. Eight runs were
scored in the fourth inning, two
on a long triple to right field by
senior Ashley Henriquez.


Hidalgo, who defeated the
Conchs in Key West last sea-
son, had success only against
freshman Lauren Wells, who
struck out twice and was hit-
less in four at-bats.
"Defensively, we didn't
have a good game," said
Hidalgo, whose wild throw to
an out-of-position first base-
men allowed two runs to score
in the big fourth." They're
improved," she said of the
Conchs, adding that the 2-5
Sabres did not expect to lose
17-0.
The Sabres could do little
against Key West pitcher
Lindsay Yochum, who allowed
four hits and struck out six in
five shutout innings, the
defense (only one error) solid-
ly behind her.
Although the game was well
in hand, the sheer joy that high
school sports can bring shined
through in the fourth inning
when Conch catcher Allison
Baker rapped her second hit of
the game.
After Alicia Arrozola
replaced her at first base as a
courtesy runner, Baker ran
across the shadow-streaked
infield to the dugout and her
welcoming teammates, her
smile as bright as the fading
sun.

Gardner looked strong on the
mound with eight strikeouts
and three hits allowed,
although her seven walks were
above average.
Marathon's offense started
slow, with the first score com-
ing in the second inning when
Shelby Kuck hit in Abi Meyer.
Kuck later stole second and
third on passed balls and then
stole home.
Melanie Boyd then drew a
walk and stole her way to third
and came home on a passed
ball.
In the third inning, Gardner
couldn't' find the umpire's
strike zone and walked in
Westwood's only run in the
game. The rest was all
Dolphins.
In the fifth, Marathon broke
out with four runs, starting
with a two-run triple by Meyer
and followed by a two-run sin-
gle by Yari Alpizar to score
Meyer and Melanie Boyd.
Gardner regained control
and shut down Westwood the
rest of the way, while
Marathon tacked on more runs
in the sixth on a two-run homer
by Alexis Culver.
With the bases loaded, Boyd
finished off the game with a
two-run single and then scored
on a passed ball.

Eagles finally return home


Road-weary ICS
diamond squad
stands at 1-2
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Island Christian's road-
weary Eagles finally get to find
out how they play on their home
baseball diamond Tuesday.
After starting the season
with four straight away games,
the Eagles make their home
debut at 4 p.m. Tuesday against
the Westwood Christian junior
varsity.
ICS Coach Tony Hammon
said the Eagles will sideline the
one senior on the roster to'

13-year-old
shows promise
in state events
Thirteen-year-old Marathon
tennis player Marisa Brossard
has had a successful 2007 thus
far by scoring impressive wins
in two high-level state tourna-
ments and one national event.
On Jan. 27, Brossard scored
two impressive victories in the
Ormond Beach Super Series,
including an easy (6-1, 6-0) sec-
ond-round match and a tough
come-from-behind three-set vic-
tory in the third round (2-6, 6-3,
6-3) before falling to the No. 1
seed and eventual winner.
And most recently, on Feb.
17, Brossard competed in the
Largo National Open, her first
national-level tournament since
joining the 14-year-old division.
In that event, she scored.a
surprising comeback three-set
victory over Victoria Traynor of
Osprey, Fla., (2-6, 6-4, 6-3),
before losing to No. 10 seed
Ayla Rasmuessen of Arnold,
Md., (3-6, 2-6), and Iryna
Serdyuk of Northbrook, Ill., (0-
6, 2-6), in consolation play.
Next for Brossard is a state
sectional tournament in
Pembroke Pines scheduled for
today.


problems with its varsity squad
but agreed to send the younger
squad.
Island Christian is not look-
ing for favors from anyone this
season, after taking on the
state's Class A defending cham-
pion in Brito Private, and
District 16-3A contender
Archbishop Carroll.
Hammon is trying to repeat
last season's successful formula
of playing the best available
teams in the regular season to
get ready for a return to the
Class A playoffs. In 2006,
Island Christian made the Sweet
16 round for the first time, and
returns seven of the nine
starters.
But experience has a price.
Brito beat the Eagles, 15-0, and
Carroll won an 11-0 contest.
Island Christian was 1-2
headed into a weekend road
game at Champagnat.
"If we don't learn to hit bet-
ter, we'll be in for a very long
season," said Hammon this
week. "We need to put our bats
to work."
The Eagles were hampered
against Brito when a flu bogged
down several ICS starters,
including both starting catcher
Lorenze Arce.
Infielder Phillip Izaguirre

of pitching. That included losses
to Marathon.
Now the Hurricanes have
freshman Holly Given, who
honed her fast-pitch skills in
youth leagues. Given threw a
four-hit, four-strikeout game to
beat Carrollton.
"Holly pitched an exceptional
game, changing speeds and mov-
ing the ball around," Grewe said.
"We gave her some help by play-
ing better defense."
Offensively, Chelsea Russell
had two hits for Coral Shores,
including a run-scoring triple in
the third inning. "
Senior outfielder Kelsie Baker
also had two hits and an RBI.
The Canes had eight hits,
including shots -by Shelby
Gentes, Ciara Sanchez, Tessie
Worden and Given.
Coral Shores went up 3-0 after
three innings, and extended the
edge to 6-2 before Carrollton ral-
lied for two late runs.
"I'm sure the girls are looking.


forward to Monday," Grewe said.
"It's always interesting when we
have Marathon or Key West com-
ing in."
Coral Shores' scheduled game
Friday against Maritime and
Science Technology Academy
was postponed, tentatively until
March 15, because the Makos
could not field a full team.
Marathon had a scheduled
Friday game against Westminster
Christian (results not available at
press time).
Frank said he was unsure if
Gardner would get the start
against the Hurricanes, or backup
Shelby Kuck would get the nod.
Kuck has looked strong in prac-
tice but has not seen varsity game
action yet.
"I know we've got to come to
play every game and not make
any mistakes," the Dolphin coach
said.
The Lady Dolphins have com-
mitted only one error in their first
two games and stolen a total of
19 bases. Key hitters have been
Alexis Culver, Abi Meyer and
Kelly Struyf.

Matthew Izaguirre connect-

the hardest hits we've had this
year," Hammon said. "That
game was a wash because so
many kids were sick. We're not
afraid of seeing them again."
Aaron Izaguirre and Phillip
Izaguirre pitched well against
Carroll, and kept the game close
until the Bulldogs erupted for a
six-run stanza.
"That's why we need to hit

we need them."

Black sets new distance mark A Your vote counts! al


But the Canes
are out-pointed
in Tuesday meet
Keynoter Staff

Coral Shores distance runner
Richard Black set a new school
record for the two-mile run in
winning the event at a Tuesday
track meet.
Black ran a 10-minute, 40-
second time at the Tavernier track
during the squad's first home
meet this spring.
Ransom Everglades out-point-
ed the Hurricanes in both boys'
and girls' team scores, but Black
topped a list of notable Coral
Shores performances, coach
Mary Jo Fry said.
Coral Shores took first and
second in the 100 meters, with
Johnny Martin taking first at
11.69 seconds. Jason Soares was
on Martin's heels at 11.72.
Manny Gonzales (23.79) won
the 200 meters for Coral Shores,
and teammate Darius Kittle
(23.95) was second.
Hurricane boys took first
place in two relays, the distance
4x800 (Tyler Boban, Nick
Blankenship, Gabe Suarez,
Richard Black) at 9 minutes flat.
It only took 45.72 seconds for
the team of Rob Howard, Jason
Suarez, Manny Gonzales and
Darius Kittle to win the 4x100
relay.
Gabe Suarez (55.97) took first
in the 400.
On the girls' side, Ariana


Soares (53.50) won the 300 hur-
dles.
Lady Hurricane Megan
Guenther (1:11) captured first in
the 400.
Other top Coral Shores efforts
from the Tuesday meet:

has been dominant in his first
two starts.
Coral Shores carried a 3-3
record as the Hurricanes pre-
pared for a Friday trip to
Westwood (results not avail-
able at press time).
The Canes looked impres-
sive in last weekend's wins
over Spanish River and
Palmer Trinity, but were
brought up short in a 15-0 loss
to District 16-3A leader
Gulliver Prep (6-0) Tuesday.
Games against local rival
Marathon always carry a bit of
extra spark, but head Cane


coach Jeff Meyers said his
team needs to be ready to play
Ransom Everglades, a 16-3A
foe, on Tuesday.
"We can't get .too wrapped
up in Marathon," he said. "It's
one of a lot of games."
Junior third baseman Chris
Noble tentatively is schedule
to pitch against Marathon on
Monday.
Besides Medina, catcher
Lee Catch, shortstop Ray
Ferro and outfielder Ryan
Biondoletti have been hitting
consistently.
Defensively, Coral Shores
relies on its veteran infield.
Noble, Ferro and Medina have
all started for at least two

Moody_ exhibition
Dick Moody, trompe l'oeil
artist, is holding his first one-
man show in three years at the
Lemonade Stand Art Studio,
where he is showing his new
fiberglass bodies.
"I got to know Moody pret-
ty well through his participa-
tion in the last three
Lemonade Stand 24-hour
Artist Lock-Ins," said Letty
Nowak, owner of the
studio/gallery. "When he told
me of this new body of work
he was making, I knew I
would love to fill the space
with it."
Moody has been creating in
Key West for 20 years now.
His acrylic miniatures and
murals can be found in nearly
400 homes locally and around
the world. His latest, in the
stairway of Sloppy Joe's on
Duval, is nearly 2000 square


feet and took six weeks to fin-
ish.
His stainless steel works
include the 30-foot hammer-
head shark on College Road,
Stock Island, and 6-foot lob-
ster at the Ferry Terminal.
His current fiberglass proj-
ects at the Lemonade Stand
are body casts made from live
models. Then, just as any
"bodyworker" would, he fin-
ishes them as you would a car
or boat: sand, fill, prime, sand,
fill, prime and paint.
The finished products are
sturdy enough that they can be
displayed indoors or out, "a
nearly perfect representation
of the female form," Nowak
said. "All sizes, shapes with
little to hide. The models
themselves have chosen the
car color for their torso:
Corvette yellow, British racing
green, Candy Apple Red,
Metallic Black, Bahama Blue
and more. There is not a
Cadmium Red Pale in the
bunch and the artwork is.rea-
sonably priced."
The show is up until
March 16.

'Muriel' debuts at Tropic; statues get their due


T he camera puts weight on
you.
Kim Romano's outra-
geous and poignant documen-
tary short "Muriel" jammed the
Tropic Cinema last week, turn-
ing folks away who had not
heeded the recommendation to
reserve a ticket.
The Key West premiere fea-
tured not only the film by a for-
mer island resident, but also the
dysfunctional family it was all
about.
Muriel herself spoke to the
audience after the film. Even
her husband (henceforth to be
known as "Poor Artie") and
her stepson by mistress ("Just
call him the little bastard")
were there.
Romano focuses on the per-
sonality of Muriel, which over-
flows like a lucky slot machine.

Johnson statues at the

This turnabout began its rev-
olution on the day ArtBeat cov-
ered Florida Keys Council of
the Arts Director Monica
Haskell's.resignation from the
city's Art in Public Places
Board over the issue, protest-
ing the commission's rejection
of artwork tacitly approved.
The seven figures are in two
groups, with one figure in each
extending an arm to encircle a
live human being. Johnson's
sculptures are a lot about play
and blending live humans and
their replicas. Viewers get to
invent their own interaction.
Plans are already underway
for the installation, which will
happen quickly, although the
temporary version will be dif-
ferent from what would have
been permanent.
"If we had installed them
permanently, I would have re-
concreted the whole area to
make it level," said the sculp-
tor. "Because it's temporary, I
had to [position the figures] on
plates and then shim up the
plates to level them."
He also has to deal with
wheelchair access, avoidance of
tripping hazards and the crane
that will set them up.
"They've created a number
of nightmares for me," he
joked, adding "I sort of enjoy
challenges, so what the hell.
Life is a challenge."

Haskell describes him as "very

agree.
The Custom House, which
hosted the recent show of his
works, is scheduled to set up a

are installed at the

Dance with the stars


Local celebs
to battle in
the 'ballroom'
Six local celebrities and
their partners will partici-
pate in the first ballroom-
type dancing competition to be
held in the Florida Keys.
"Dancing with Our Island
Stars" is planned for March 17
at the TIB Bank of the Keys
Amphitheater in Founders Park
in Islamorada at 7 p.m.
The event will be conducted
in a relaxed, island environ-
ment where six couples will
take to the floor individually
and perform one ballroom and
one Latin-American dance.
Each couple will consist of a
former ballroom dance com-
petitor or instructor and a local
island celebrity.
The island stars are: Skip

Program has
healing qualities
at Murphy House
By CLAUDIA MILLER
L'Attitudes contributor

he developmentally dis-
abled in the Upper Keys
can enjoy the benefits of
yoga thanks to instructor
Shevaun Young. Young has
modified her hatha yoga class to
accommodate their individual
needs, which she teaches every
Friday afternoon at Paradise
Yoga in Islamorada.
Young, who is also a real
estate agent at Realty World-
Freewheeler, started studying
yoga soon after she moved to the
Keys eight years ago. She-was
suffering from the occupational
stresses of being a waitress and
started working with tapes at
home to relax and create more
flexibility.
"I enjoyed it so much. I
decided tb make a living out of
it," she said.


Young went to an ashram in
Colorado for one month to get
her yoga instructor certification.
Then, she started her own com-
pany, Heart of Yoga. She has
been teaching for six years from
Ocean Reef to Hawk's Cay at
yoga studios, schools, resorts
and private companies.
Now Young has pared down
her teaching to two classes a
week at Paradise Yoga and some
private 'sessions. She has been
teaching the class for the devel-
opmentally disabled for four
years. Her main participants
have been the residents and
community members that are a
part of the Pat Murphy House in
Key Largo.
"Shevaun was the first and
only one who would do this
yoga class for us," Murphy said.
"Everybody else was afraid to
do it for somebody with disabili-
ties. Shevaun was brave."
The Pat Murphy House is an
adult group-home licensed by
the Agency for Persons with
Disabilities that houses six resi-
dents. The staff organizes activi-
ties with other disabled commu-
nity members for outings to go
swimming, take water aerobics,
plant on Windley Key, and go
cooking and camping. They
make regular trips to Disney
World and have even taken
cruises to the Bahamas and
Mexico.
Young teaches hatha yoga,
which is a slow-paced and gentle
practice.
"All yoga is about bringing
the mind, body and spirit togeth-
er," explained Young. "Ha
means sun and tha means moon.
You're bringing the warm mas-
culine energies together with the
cooling feminine energies. Yoga
means 'to union."'
Even though the group has
disabilities, the students are able
to do all of the same things as
those in Young's other classes,
which include aromatherapy,
chanting, breathing and relaxing
into the poses. The class does
differ in that she has to pay more
attention to each individual to
help them with focus, coordina-
tion and balance.
"I have to stop sometimes
and get up to help somebody to
get into the pose," she explained.
"I have to keep repeating
myself. It's a totally different

Cujo always deserves what he gets


Even if it's
Jalepeia Lena
on a rainy day
h, so now I'm suddenly
the bad guy here. You
know, it's damned if
you do and damned if you
don't.
When I rescued my Upper
Keys friends by taking Cujo to
Key Weird to seek the help of
a voodoo practitioner, you'd
think thanks would be in order.
Oh, but no. Ever since that
Jan. 5 column hit the stands,
social services has been crawl'-
ing up and down my back try-
ing to locate Cujo to feed and
clothe him and give him a free
place to stay in paradise and
it's been shame on me ever
since for dumping him off on
that voodoo lady's doorstep.
OK already, I admit it. I feel
bad for dumping Cujo off on
her doorsteps poor voodoo
lady!
If I may have one last
request before I'm sent to the
gallows, indulge me for just a
moment. (I'm hoping this
doesn't come off sounding too

years in
the
Catholic
school sys-
tem. Every
Wednesday
- rain,
shine or
tornadic
activity -
my class
would
walk to St.
Paul's
Church for


Mass. Unlike the other stu-
dents, when it came time to
take part in eating of the Body
of Christ, I was never allowed
to participate, even though I
continually expressed my
desire to do so since it fell
around lunch time.
And as if that didn't leave
enough scar tissue, time and
time again, it was driven into
my young impressionable
brain by a sadistic nun who
walked around smacking her
own hand with a ruler that I
was going to hell. The other
kids looked at me as if I suf-
fered a contagious disease; I
cried every afternoon on my
ride home to the bar.
The point is, regardless of
the tormented years of my
youth, I live my life by the


golden rule,.and if I were as
crazy and as demented as
Cujo, in the name of God I
would hope someone would
take the initiative to have me
exorcised before the slow
ridin' and sad singin'.
In my book, anyone who
would cash in their 99-year-old
mother's burial policy while
she was on her deathbed
severely lacks any humanist
qualities.
Please do take the time to
refer to my previous stories so
I don't have to continually
remind you of what a dirty,
rotten, low-down disgusting,
manipulative bastard Cujo is. I
think that pretty much covers it
- he'd be proud of that
description.
When Hurricane Katrina hit
the Lower Keys, just two days
before she became the United
States' worst disaster (I men-
tion that because it was my
Mississippi Coast hometown
that she obliterated) I was
deeply involved in a little R &
R Keys style on the fifth floor
of the La Concha Hotel.
It was leaking like a sieve; I
was lying in bed looking up at
the ceiling watching a plaster
bubble, which had already
swelled to the size of a soccer
ball, when the lights went out.


I'm no genius, but no electrici-
ty means no air, no food, no
elevators and no cold beer.
Hating to miss the bursting of
the bubble, I hoofed it on
down the five flights of stairs
hoping to find a hurricane
party.
Breathless when I finally
reached the bottom, I stepped
off onto the marble floor of the
lobby, took a skid and was
thrown feet first into the air. It
was as if Hulk Hogan body
slammed me back onto the
concrete stairs.
Instantly sick to my stom-
aqh, I suppressed the urge to
vomit. The fall should've bro-
ken my neck and cracked my
skull, but my parents always
told me I was hard headed and
it must have finally paid off.
I dragged myself to the bar


where I took a window seat to
watch Katrina do her thing.
Tourists partying in the streets
seemed oblivious to the
unhinged metal signs slicing
every which way through
Duval. Hotel patrons were

Artists get high visibility


Redbone Gallery
opens in Green
Turtle building
By CLAUDIA MILLER
L'Attitudes contributor
For anyone who has ever
had a problem finding the
Redbone Gallery in
Islamorada, your search now
ends on'U.S. 1 at the big sign
with the green turtle on it.
Joining the Florida Keys
Outfitters and the soon to be
opened Green Turtle restaurant,
the gallery officially launched 1


its new home with a reception
on Feb. 17.
Originally opened in the
early 1990s, the Redbone
Gallery evolved from the din-
ing room of Gary and Susan
Ellis. An offshoot from their
well-known Redbone fishing
tournaments, the gallery focus-
es on saltwater fishing and nat-
ural themes.
"When I was a kid in my
hometown, we had an auditori-
um where it was engraved on
one side 'art at is highest and
nature at its purest are one',"
said Gary Ellis. "That pretty


much describes what we are.
We're the art of nature."
The new gallery is as spa-
cious as their old building, but
it no longer has to compete
with the office the couple uses
to coordinate their fishing tour-
naments and Redbone Journal.
"When people would come
into the old gallery, my opening
welcome was to excuse the dis-
array for whatever tournament
we would be working on,"
Gary Ellis said. "We wanted to
try and separate that and have a
nice clean crisp gallery."
The new space offers high
ceilings, cathedral windows and
ample light. They've filled

at the new Redbone Gallery in the Green Turtle building in
Islamorada. Gallery owners Gary and Susan Ellis plan to
feature various artist events at their new location.

every wall with paintings from
well-known artists such.as Tim
Borski, Vaughn Cochran, C.D.
Clarke, Chritsi Mathews, Mike
Stidham and Don Ray.
"We try to hang artists that
contrast with one another,"
Ellis said. "On one wall, we'll
have someone whose art is fish-
ing in the northeast, next to a
flats artist, or a bird artist next
to a fish artist. The trouble is
that I have four or five more
artists that I want to get hung in
there. It's going to be an ongo-
ing battle of space allotment."
The gallery also features a
line of hand-etched furniture
from Kathy Zimmerman. These
include everything from lamps
to queen sized headboards that
illustrate bonefish, tarpon, per-
mit, sailfish and now, green
turtles. Decorating the windows
on either side of the doorway as
patrons enter the gallery are
large stained-glass sailfish and
tarpon from David
Oppenheimer. Other glass art is
made by Christopher, who does
inlaid mosaic pieces, and soon


cated


the Ellises will carry a line of
blown glass bowls called Hot
Glass, which was recently fea-
tured on "Oprah."
There is something for every
budget, starting with small
prints that are two for $25 by
Mathews to original paintings
that go up to $15,000.
"I've seen these artists grow
over the years, and their prices
have gone up," Ellis said.
"They sell because they're
commanding that. At the
gallery, I think we would be
remiss not to show the more
expensive pieces of original art.
There are people who are in
that market, but at the same
time we want to show the less
expensive prints."
Each quarter, the gallery is
going to have a featured artist,
and for this quarter it is local
painter Borski.
Ellis noted that they will be
introducing new artists all the
time, since he discovers new
talent during his travels with

Geri Luer, Brad
Shank, Casey
Dressier, and
Chris Ypsilanti
rehearse for
'Nobody's
Perfect,' showing
this weekend in
Key Largo.


Last chance to see


'Nobody's Perfect'


Play wraps up
this weekend
at Lion's Club
In its first production of 2007,
the Key Players presents
Simon Williams' adult
romantic comedy "Nobody's
Perfect," a witty British play
that has amused audiences the
world over.
The play "bristles with
sharply funny one-liners" and
"has one of the funniest
sequences I've seen in any
comedy for a long time,"
according to a Birmingham Post
critic. "I laughed so much I was
gasping for breath."
Actor and playwright
Williams, best known to
American audiences as the
dashing but tragic Capt. James
Bellamy in "Up Stairs, Down
Stairs," has crafted a work that
well suits the Key Players, an
Upper
Keys community theater
group that has provided oppor-
tunities for involvement in and
enjoyment of theater since
1978.
Locals will recognize many
cast members in "Nobody's
Perfect," directed by Tom
Butler and produced by Patrice
Messina and Nancy Wells.
Brad Shank appears as the
middle-aged Leonard, a timid,
lovelorn statistician who aspires
to write romantic fiction.
Shank last appeared in multi-
ple roles in the musical "I Love
You, You're Perfect... Now
Change!"
Harriet, performed by Geri


Luer, is a feminist publisher
running a competition to find
new romantic fiction: "For
Women, by Women."
In her last role with the Key
Players, Luer played Truvy, the
flamboyant beauty shop owner
in "Steel Magnolias."
Casey Dressler portrays Dee
Dee, Leonard's wayward
daughter. Presently at the
Acting School of South Florida
in Hollywood, Dressier has
been doing shows with the
Keys Players since the age of
12. She recently won first prize
at the Clear Channel Radio
Talent Contest at Cheeca
Lodge.
The character of Gus,
Leonard's irrepressible father,
fits Chris Ypsilanti like a glove.
Also a familiar figure on the
local stage, many remember
him from "Over the River, and
Through the Woods" and as
Elwood P. Dowd in "Harvey."
The plot: After Leonard sub-
mits his manuscript under.the
name of Lulabelle Latiffa, he is
overjoyed when he wins first
prize.
However, Leonard finds
himself in quite a predicament
when Harriet turns up at his
apartment with a contract for
Lulabelle's signature. As he
frantically improvises, Dee Dee
and Gus manage to further
complicate the situation.
See the play today at 8 p.m.
at the Lions Club, mile marker
99.6 in Key Largo (behind TIB
Bank). Tickets are $12.50 at the
door. Doors open at 7:30.
Call 453-0997 for more.

'Gigi' is a 'can-do' play


Real-life mother-
daughter team
star in MCT play
By DICK CONKLIN
L'Attitudes Contributor

Marathon Community
Theatre has done it
again, bringing anoth-
er award-winning musical to


Keys audiences. "Gigi," an
original screenplay by Alan
Jay Lerner with music by
Frederick Loewe, was also a
multiple Oscar-winning 1958
movie starring Leslie Caron as
Gigi.
Classic songs like "Thank
Heaven For Little Girls," "I
Remember It Well," and "I'm
Glad I'm Not Young
Anymore" are hits from the
show.
Locally, "Gigi" is ably
directed by Jorg Gobel-Staib,
assisted by Alicia Merel, and
produced by Hermann Staib.
Cheryl Wilcox is the choreog-
rapher.
The cast delivers many
memorable performances, like
that of Fred Hundhammer
(who is also the president of
the theater's board of direc-
tors) as bon vivant uncle
Honor, Sharon Williams as
Mamita, and Brenda Duff as
the irrepressible Aunt Alicia.
The three high-energy can-can
girls provide comic relief
throughout the show.
But the young couple -
Mariah Cheatham as the preco-
cious and carefree Gigi and
Devin Clarke as Gaston are
outstanding in their acting and
singing roles. At age 15,
Marathon High's Cheatham is
already a theater veteran,
delivering a performance that
you would expect from a much
more seasoned actor. Florida
Keys Community College
freshman Clarke is perfect as
man-of-the-world Gaston.
The story is set in a Paris
apartment, where Gigi's grand-
mother Mamita and great aunt


Alicia hope to groom the girl
as a courtesan. But Gigi finds
the lessons restrictive and bor-
ing, and falls in love with a
young, wealthy man named
Gaston.
MCT's version of "Gigi" is
also a family affair. Cheatham
(Gigi) is the real life daughter
of Williams (Mamita). The lit-
tle girl who plays a brief role
at the beginning of the show is
Williams' younger daughter, 4-
year-old Clara, who has a
promising future in show busi-
ness.
The production staff is not
afraid to try new things, either.
Gobel-Staib and Wilcox came
up with the idea of adding the
three-woman can-can review
to the show, featuring the
dancers in between scene
changes. Sylvia Rickett is
hilarious as can-can girl
Sandomir.
While we're at it, credit is
also due Staib, the musical's
music director. The back-
ground music is as close to
live as you can get. The "black
box" set design is simple, but
serves its purpose, making it
easier to focus on the skilled
acting, dancing and singing of
the cast.
The show runs Thursday,
Friday, and Saturday evenings
at 8 p.m. through March 31
with a Sunday matinee set for
March 18 at 3 pm. It's a good
idea to purchase tickets in
advance by calling 473-0994
or stopping at the theater box
office at mile marker 49.5
oceanside from 10 am to 2 pm.
Call 743-0408 or e-mail
gm@marathontheater.org for
more.

placing bets on whether there
would be a decapitation when
one of the knuckleheads out in
the street began to resemble
someone I'd seen in a night-
mare.
Thinking it was a hallucina-
tion brought on by head trau-
ma, I said a quick prayer never
the less.
"Oh Lord please don't let
that large green hefty garage
bag raising hell in the winds
and the rains of a hurricane be
Cujo."
The howling wind took a
nasty turn and blew the laugh-
ing bag of trash in my direc-
tion. It was Cujo all right and
he was drunk as Cooter
Brown.
A tear trickled down my
face; why couldn't that have
been Johnny Depp?
Cujo's blue eye was red, his
green eye was red and both
eyes were spinning round in
his head like a Las Vegas
roulette wheel on a Saturday
night.
He offered me a drink, and
I was tempted, but I've known
him to drink rubbing alcohol,
so I passed. I was desperate
for a painkiller though and
demanded he give up his
source for booze.
"It was a gift from the
gods!" he shouted as he raised
the glass toward the heavens.
"There's no liquor for sale
on this island right now Cujo
so you best tell me where you
got the booze," I demanded.
"All right already," he said.
"I got it down the street. Some
outdoor bar left the
Jagermeister machine on."
"How do you know the
Jagermiester machine was left
on?" I asked.
"Duh Sammie," he said,
spraying the liquor dripping
from his scraggly untrimmed
mustache onto my face. "The
red light was on!"
The door burst open abrupt-
ly and a bait-camp woman
with tree stump legs wearing a
matching hefty bag pushed her
way into the bar.
It was Cujo's partner in
crime, Jalapefia Lena. But it
was hard to tell if he was
happy to see Jalapefia or that
full glass of Jagermeister she
was carrying. Their greeting
was primitive. They slobbered,
staggered and slurred inaudible
words while looking into one
another's glass to make sure

they had equal shares of alco-
hol.Watching the spectacle, I
wondered if "Son of Cujo"
would become a sequel.
When the rain and the
Jagermeister stopped pouring,
their affection for one another MARATHON PUBLIX
dried up as well. Cujo called SHOPPING CENTER
Jalapefia "halitosis" so she
took off a soggy, smelly tennis FOR FACTORY PRICED
shoe, reared back like Dizzy AKt
Dean on a good day and struck
him up side the head with it
from 20 feet away. Curious to
see if the shoe had a sobering
effect, at a safe distance I fol-
lowed the gluttons through Old
Town. The two were stagger-
ing along at the same pace
with Cujo on one side of the
street and Jalapefia Lena on
the other. She cussed a blue
streak in dizzy broken French
all the way to the Schooner
Wharf Bar.
Meeting his match and
seemingly wanting to escape
the wrath of the crazy Cajun, .
Cujo leapt into the churning
waters of the gulf Jalapefia
Lena followed.
Let this be a lesson espe-
cially to all you do-gooders

Take a trip to 'South Pacific'


Island Opera
to perform
classic musical
Island Opera Theatre, now in
its sixth year of presenting
opera and musical theater,
continues to bring song to the
stage for the 2006-07 season.
The troupe has chosen the
classic "South Pacific" as this
season's highlight, which is set
for March 9 through 11 and 16
through 18 at the Tennessee
Williams Theatre, 5901 College
Road on Stock Island.


Island Opera Theatre was
founded by Dean Walters, who
has performed, directed and pro-
duced opera and musical theater
for more than 30 years, and con-
ducted by Vincent Zito, formerly
an assistant conductor with the
New York Grand Opera.
The company's motto "We
Sing in All Keys" expresses a
performance philosophy that
includes an "on the road" series
of Keyswide touring presenta-
tions. The troupe presented more
than 78 performances of 22 dif-
ferent productions in Key West,

approach in that class."
Murphy said that because of
the yoga, her group showed
improved self-esteem, better
mobility and better social skills.
"They love it," she said.
"Shevaun can't keep them quiet
most of the time. You think of
yoga as being very focused, not
these guys. They have a good
time."
Young said that in her class,
she emphasizes what each indi-
vidual can do instead of what
they can't.
"Teaching them just makes
me feel good," she said. "They
could get discouraged because of
their physical limitations, but


they don't. I get to see their
progress and how they start to
feel good about themselves." -
Young noted that people are
often intimidated when thinking
about going to a yoga class,
because they often see photos of
extremely flexible people in
advanced poses.
"People shouldn't be scared
to come and try it," she said.
"The yoga that I teach is for
everyone's body no matter
how old, no matter what they
have going on."
Anyone interested in partici-
pating in the Friday class for the
developmentally disabled should
call Yoga in Paradise at 517-
9642. Young teaches her other
class on Tiesdays at 9:30 a.m.

"It's really impressive to see

canvas and come alive," Ellis
said of Stidham's painting
process.
While most of Redbone's
clientele lives in the Keys, a
large number of customers
come from places such as the

"These three businesses go
hand-in-hand, and all three
names stand on their own in the
sport fishing industry in the
Keys," he said. "Someone
would have a hard time walk-
ing into the Green Turtle
restaurant or Florida Keys
Outfitters and not walk into the
Redbone Gallery. It's a win-win
situation."
All of the proceeds from the
gallery as well as the tourna-
ments and journal go to benefit
the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
This is part of the Ellis' ongo-
ing effort to combat the disease
that their daughter Nicole was
Born with in 1984. Since the
first tournament in 1988, they
have raised more than $9 mil-


lion.
"It makes me proud that
people look at our efforts and
see that the money's going to
the right place," Ellis said.
"The Cystic Fibrosis
Foundation has the best record
for percentage of actual dollars
that goes to science over 90
percent goes into research, care
and medical programs. It's
good to know that people
believe in us and support us."
Ellis predicts that the Green
Turtle building is going to
become a "must-see destina-
tion" for anyone coming to the
Keys.
"It's going to become one of
those places where you've got
to go there at least once."

Conch honk


takes place today


Sign up at

to compete

E enthusiastic contestants,
From toddlers to seniors,
. L-Jwill polish their conch
shells, pucker up, and demon-
strate their shell-blowing talents
on the Sunset Pier at Ocean Key
Resort & Spa Sunset Pier, Zero
Duval St., beginning at 1:30
today.
This 45th annual Conch Shell
Blowing Contest celebrates the
historic importance of the conch
in the Keys, where the far-reach-
ing sounds from conch shells
were used by the Calusa Indians
for communication, by sailors as
fog horns, and by early Key
Westers to signal salvagers that a
sinking ship was spotted off-
shore.
The conch itself, a sturdy sea
mollusk, is deeply entwined in
Key West's heritage and tradi-
tions. Conch meat is featured in
local dishes, although illegal to
harvest in Keys Waters now,
such as fritters and chowder, and
native-born islanders are called


Conchs.
Judges and special guests,
including city Mayor Morgan
McPherson and former city
commissioner Sally Lewis, will
help determine the trophy win-
ners in several age categories:
under 5 years, 6 to 11, 12 to 17,
over 18 solo, and over 18 group.
Entrants are judged on the quali-
ty, duration and loudness, and
novelty of the sound they pro-
duce.
Mercifully, for most contest-
ants, musical ability is not a
requirement in the annual con-
test.
There will be demonstrations
of the intricacies of this ancient
and noble art, and conch horns
will be available to purchase for
contestants who do not have
their own.
Entertainment will be provid-
ed by Auwina Weed, a virtuoso
on the conch shell.
The event is free to attend.
Contestants may register for the
contest from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
at Sunset Pier.

Learn Gyotaku techniques Monday


Artists network
meeting at
Big Pine gallery

A Lower Keys Artists
Network meeting will be
held Monday at the
Artists in Paradise Gallery,
Winn-Dixie Shopping Center,
Big Pine Key (mile marker 30).
A demonstration of positive
and negative nature printing will
be presented by Kim Workman
of Kimian's Art.
She and her husband Ian are
known for their Gyotaku (fish
printing) art. Kim Workman is
well versed in a variety of
nature painting techniques.
Using leaves to apply color to
fabric or paper is a more famil-
iar and traditional method to
create a positive print.
Extracting or removing the color
from the dark fabric or paper
creates a dramatic negative
print. Both techniques will be
demonstrated.
The public is invited, and
attendees are asked to bring a
chair. Refreshments will be
served.

And the Oscar goes too...


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


Wine glass in hand,
dressed in his custom-
ary black and wearing
a Cuba ball cap, George Cooper,
the leading man of the Key West
Film Society, said, "Everything's
great, we're starting in 10 min-
utes."
It was just before 7 last
Sunday evening and already a
good-sized gathering was on
hand for the second annual
Oscar party at the Tropic
Cinema on Eaton Street, the
downtown theater that in the last
few years has solidified itself as
a mecca of independent and
Oscar-worthy films.
The lobby was festooned with
balloons, including two large
ones in the shape of the famous
Academy Award statuette.
Volunteers scurried around,
many with silver hair and wear-
ing black T-shirts that read,
"This film is rated KW we
love to watch."
"You Can Leave Your Hat
On," the song from the steamy
'80s Kim Basinger/Mickey
Rourke movie "Nine 1/2 Weeks"
played over a sound system.
Outside, beneath the colorful
marquee, a red carpet had been
laid across Eaton Street and
movie lovers had assembled in
plastic chairs in front of a giant
projection screen. Searchlights
scanned the darkening sky, in
which a lone star was visible.


The show began as Joan
Rivers actually the local
female impersonator Christopher
Peterson pranced onto the
carpet. Bathed by klieg lights,
she brassily gushed through per-
fect dark red lips, "I look per-
fect" and, "Look at this crowd,
isn't this fabulous?"
She wore a long, tight
sequined gown, a feather boa
and gaudy jewelry, and her
blonde hair was done in a basket
weave. She punctuated each
utterance with a loud intake of
breath.
The crowd loved it.
She told some risqu6 jokes,
introduced local "celebrities"
(most names failed to ring a bell)
and asked the crowd Oscar trivia
questions, such as, "Why is it
called Oscar?" One woman had
the answer: A librarian for the
academy looked at the statuette
and said, "That looks like my
Uncle Oscar."
Two women in black dress
were escorted across the carpet
and when Joan asked them what
they were wearing, they proudly
said in unison, "Ann Taylor."
One legitimate celeb was
Judy Blume, Cooper's wife.
"Oh my God, Judy Blume,"
Joan blurted. "Ladies and gentle-
men, a magnificent author."
Blume came as '50s-vintage
Debbie Reynolds. She had on a
black quilted taffeta dress with a
red lining and held together on


one side by Scotch tape.
"It's been in the closet for 27
years," she explained with her
perpetual smile. "I'm being silly
tonight."
A police officer approached
the writer of children's books.
Asked what their conversation
was about, she said, "My Jeep,
it's in a bad place, but George is
going to move it."
Back inside, where Joe
Cocker's "You Can Leave Your
Hat On" was still playing in the
poster-plastered lobby, cham-
pagne flowed as Gary Cooper,
Jean Harlow and other dead
movie stars gazed out at the
merry makers who had paid
$150 to eat, drink and watch the
Oscar show on one of the
Tropic's three screens.
One of the film buffs was
Florence Spotkov, a winter resi-
dent from Scarsdale, N.Y.
"I'm a senior citizen here to
volunteer, but there are so many
people here and it looks like
they're trying to get me drunk,"
she said, as a waiter refilled her
glass.
It had become 8 p.m.
"We're going live to
Hollywood, California," Joan
Rivers could be heard saying
after the giddiness of the last
trivia question had ebbed.
A few minutes later, she was
inside mingling with the guests.
"It took me longer than most
women to get ready tonight," she
said, adding through perfect lips,
"I am not Randy Roberts."

William
Welch's 'Casa
Hemingway,'
shown here, is
an example of
his vibrant
works on
display at the
Gallery on
Greene.


'Small Wonders and


Large Impressions'


William Welch
showing new art
works on Greene
In his ninth annual solo show
at The Gallery on Greene,
606 Greene St. in Key West,
which opens today, William
Welch has departed from his
mainly French and European
motifs to focus on the visual
treasures of Key West, Cuba and
their tropical surroundings.
An accomplished interation-
al artist with representation in
galleries and collections stateside
and abroad, Welch's style evokes
emphatically the passion and
love of paint surface, color and
light of the classic impressionist
masters of the 19th Century.
Impressionist art is a style in
which the artist captures the
image of an object as someone
would see it if they just caught a


glimpse of it. Welch paints with
a lot of color and most of his
paintings are outdoor scenes.
"The new work is very bright
and vibrant," said gallery owner
Nance Frank. "Welch finds in
Key West dynamic inspiration
for experiments with rapid
brushwork, a high-keyed palette,
and brilliant effects of color and
light."
More than 40 new works
highlight island subjects from
Hemingway's home in oils on'
canvas to miniature watercolors
of Cuba. Top architectural gems
of Key West and a few of
Europe comprise this exhibition.
"With a style distinctly his
own, but based on the impres-
sionist palette similar to that of
Claude Monet, Welch puts virtu-
ally pure, unmixed pigment so
intensely on the canvas with-his
brushstroke, then blends it as he
needs," Frank said. "The results
are stunningly original surfaces


and textures with a vibrancy and
depth that capture and hold the
eye of even the most educated
art lover."
Of his work, Welch said, "It
is the impressionist ideal of
painting before nature to best
achieve the effects of color and
light that I love, in subtle
changes in the atmosphere.
Every work I attempt I want to
be a journey towards the essence
of the subject and a journey
away from personal limits and
artistic inertia. I love to show the
effect of sunlight on flowers and
figures. Hopefully, the result is
joyful, passionate and honest."
Those who think classic
Impressionist painting is con-
fined to the romantic past and
merely another move'
museum collections change
their minds after st Welch's
latest exhibition this weekend.

Charest-Weinburg to
feature two artists

The Charest-Weinberg
gallery, on Wednesday, kicks off
a new show with a reception
from 7 to 10 p.m., featuring the
works of Jorge Enrique and Luis
Garcia-Nerey, which runs
through March 19.
In Luis's sculptural paintings,
the everyday sits side-by-side
with the ideal, searching out the
unseen beauty of found objects
and applied geometry. Born in
Santurce, Puerto Rico to Cuban
parents, he now lives in Miami.
The work of Enrique is a by-
product of the process of discov-
ery and color. It is incorrect to
describe Enrique's paintings as
monochromatic, 'meaning that
they are variations on a theme of
one color: white.
Some will remember Enrique
from when he showcased his
visual art on the 40-foot walls of
Fort Martello in January to kick
off Sculpture Key West.
Charest-Weinberg is at 1111
Duval in Key West.
