SCROLLS / From I

said. "'I was in prison and you
came to visit me...' Those
were the words of Jesus
Christ. We get to take the
rarest pieces of God's word to
these places."
The Dead Sea Scrolls,
named for the location of their
discovery in 1948, are thought
to be the remains of as many as
800 manuscripts found in 11
caves, all believed to date back
to two centuries B.C. and into
the 1st Century A.D.
Although their origin is still
argued among scholars, it is
widely believed the writings
were once the library of a
Jewish sect, hidden away
before the Romans massacred
them around 70 A.D.
Many of the fragments
remain with the Israeli govern-
ment, though the Library of
Congress exhibited 12 large
fragments in 2004.
Miller says the Special Visit
Ministry acquired its fragment
six months ago from an anony-
mous donor. He said the
leather fragment is believed to-
have been part of the original
find that was sold to a Swiss
Jesuit collection in 1956.
Miller says the antiquity has
been authenticated by respect-
ed Dead Sea Scroll scholars.
Calls to various Scroll
authorities were not immedi-
ately returned Friday, so the
Keynoter was unable to sub-
stantiate the fragment's
authenticity.
The Nag Hammadi frag-
ment is allegedly a piece of the
12 leather-bound papyrus writ-
ings discovered in Egypt in
1945. They are believed to
date to the early 4th Century
A.D.
Though the 2,000-year-old
fragments may be the celebri-
ties of the exhibit, some of the
other works on display are
more accessible literally.
Many of the relics are not
encased behind glass, but dis-
played open with their pages
easily read.
"People read from these,
they cried over them," Miller
said, gently turning the pages
of a large Lutheran Bible
printed in 1537 while Martin
Luther was living.
Sunday, the Millers will
take the exhibit out to do its
other work.
"We're taking the exhibit
into the Big Pine [Road]
Prison," Miller said.
Miller's Ohio-based min-
istry evolved behind bars. In
his book "Mobster to

evision and radio programs.

Busy final weekend


abra an our past


VOTING / From I

"Bicycle" Joanie Nelson and for-
mer Planning Commissioner
Don Vasil.
Most candidates said they
would be busy in a final cam-
paign push this weekend, includ-
ing spending a lot of time at the
Original Marathon Seafood
Festival today and Sunday.
Bartus, a two-time mayor
who was term-limited out of
office in 2006 after being elected
to three consecutive two-year
terms, said he is interested to see
how the first at-large election
will play out, especially since he
is noticing less participation by
community groups than in the
past.
"It seems like a lot of people
are sort of sitting back and
observing what is goihg on," said
Bartus, who has touted his expe-
rience on issues like sewers and
housing. "I just hope we have a
good voter turnout."
Last year saw organizations
such as the Marathon Citizens
for Responsible Government
Inc., the Professional Firefighters
of Marathon Local 4396 and the
Marathon and Lower Keys
Association of Realtors endorse
candidates.
This year, no political action
committees have stepped for-
ward. Marathon and Lower Keys
Association of Realtors President
Laura Hutt said her group had to
cancel its annual meeting with
the candidates due to renovations
to the board's office.
Some groups are still cam-
paigning for candidates, howev-
er, such as the Republican Party
of Monroe County's endorse-
ment of Mearns and Vasil.
"Jeff [Pinkus] pulled out of
the race, so really it was only me
and Don left as registered repub-
licans," said Mearns, who has
said she wants to continue the
city's work on budgeting and
housing projects in a second
term.
Vasil also has the support of
the firefighters' union. He said

Gunshots land man
in jail on 2 counts

An Islamorada man who
fired a handgun several times
both inside and outside his
home was arrested shortly after
1 a.m. Friday.
According to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office,
deputies were called to the
Sunset Drive in Islamorada to


reports of a disturbance. When
they arrived, the woman who
reported the incident said
Tommy Hughes, 53; had fired
one shot inside and several
outside.
Hughes was jailed on
counts of discharging a
firearm in public and burglary
because the house he was in
wasn't his and he had no per-
mission to be there, deputies
said.


that endorsement and that from
the Republican Party came as
surprises.
"I have not solicited the sup-
port of any particular group, but
that's great I have their support,"
said Vasil, who has chided past
and current councils' for what he
says is overspending and stand-
ing down to developers.
Cinque said he never paid too
much attention to endorsements,
although he doesn't like the
Republican Party becoming
involved in a nonpartisan council
election.
"I'm pretty much an inde-
pendent, and I don't think the
race should get involved with
any party politics," gaid Cinque,
who has run on a platform of
spending reform and helping
small businesses thrive.
Nelson said she never has, nor
probably ever will, receive an
endorsement from a group or
party, and that's fine with her.
"There are groups meeting
behind closed doors, and they
will never endorse me. My
whole message is against it," said
Nelson, who is continuing to run
on a stance of protecting work-
ing-class people from being
forced out-by over-development
and high taxes.
Polls are open from 7 a.m. to
7 p.m. Tuesday. Voting precincts
are the American Legion at 4115
Overseas Highway, the First
Baptist Church on 62nd Street,
Kirk of the Keys Presbyterian
Church at 8877 Overseas
Highway and the Marathon
Moose Lodge on 1st Avenue.
Voting requires a valid photo ID.
According to the city charter,
winners of the election will be
seated at the March 27 City
Council meeting. The council
will also choose a mayor and
vice mayor at that meeting.
Also on the ballot is a non-
binding referendum asking vot-
ers whether they'd like to see the
city election date moved to coin-
cide with the November elec-
tions. The City Council has said
it may use the information to
possibly change the date.

Diver dies off the middle Keys


Naples man, son
were visiting
Samantha's Reef
A Naples man died while div-
ing offshore Marathon
Wednesday, the second dive
death in the Keys this year.
According to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office, Bradley
Lewis, 55, was aboard the Reef
Hopper out of Captain Hook's
Marina with his son Jeremy and
another man, who was from
Ontario.
At Samantha's Reef at 1:15
p.m., according to the boat's cap-
tain, the three went into the water
together, but just minutes later
Jeremy Lewis surfaced. His
father then surfaced about 100
feet behind the boat.
The captain reported that it
was apparent Lewis was having
trouble, 'so he told the son to


climb aboard and they would go
get him. In the meantime, he
yelled to the father to drop his
weight belt, inflate his buoyancy
compensator and put his regula-
tor in his mouth, Deputy Becky
Herrin said.
He got the boat started and
turned it around to go help
Lewis, but both he and the son
lost sight of him. The captain
motored to the area where he last
saw Lewis, called another dive
boat for assistance and dove in.
He found Lewis near the bottom;
his regulator reportedly was not
in his mouth and his weight belt
was stuck on his right ankle.
He brought the man to the sur-
face and began rescue breathing.
Crew from the other dive boat
arrived and helped get Lewis
aboard, and cardiopulmonary
resuscitation was performed until
the U.S. Coast Guard arrived.

tem in Plantation Key Colony,
which led to an ongoing state
investigation.
The troubled wastewater sys-
tem also led to the January resig-
nation of Orlando Hemandez,
Islamorada's utilities and capital
projects manager. Hemandez's
replacement, former Key Largo
Wastewater Treatment District
construction manager Myles
Milander, was introduced at
Thursday's meeting.
Reckwerdt would not say
specifically why he changed his
mind about Word. "We've all
made a lot of progress in the last
few months," he said.
Cathi Hill, the only one of the
five council members to vote
against asking Word back, said
she "stood by my statements of
Dec. 14," when the council gave
Word a poor six-month job
review.
Mayor Chris Sante, who did-
n't ask for Word's resignation,
said the situation got out of hand
because of "poor communica-
tion."
"When you stop talking,
assumptions happen and you
assume the worst," he said.
The council's change in atti-
tude regarding Word's perform-
ance confused some residents,
including Elizabeth Jolin, who
told the council, "This is weird."
Word's decision to stay on the


village payroll was made easier
last week when the City Council
of Treasure Island in Pinellas
County passed him over and
selected Reid Silverboard, Bellair
Beach's city manager, for the city
manager position.
Word applied for the job after
his performance review in
Islamorada.

Finance director
Reconciliation with Word
wasn't the only staff shakeup that
council members tried to resolve
Thursday.
The council instructed Word
to start looking for someone to
lead Islamorada's Finance
Department, which has been
without an in-house head since
last fall.
The village has contracted
with Cindy Lawson of account-
ing firm Bishop, Rosasco & Co.
for $12,000 a month since
October to oversee the depart-
ment. Word sacked Finance
Director Shari Elliot earlier that
month in an effort to "restore
confidence in the Finance
Department," he said then.
Elliot's removal was part of an
overall move to cut more than
$700,000 of the village budget.
Some council members,
including Hill,, Reckwerdt and
Dave Boemer, objected to the
$95,000 to $110,000 annual
salary Word wants to advertise
for the job, but he said the pay
has to be high enough to attract
qualified people to the Keys.
Elliot's salary was $70,000.


They took Lewis onto their ves-
sel and continued CPR until they
reached shore.
Lewis was pronounced dead
at Fishermen's Hospital. An


autopsy was planned to deter-
mine the cause of death.
The other 2007 dive death
was that of Kendra Conrad
Motter, 40, of Canton, Ohio, who


was diving with Horizon Divers
of Tavernier when she went
unconscious Jan. 13; she died
five days later at Mariners
Hospital.

Don't tempt fate

on road crossings

Today would be a good day to practice a good-neighbor pol-
icy.
This marks one of those weekends in the Keys when a con-
fluence of events and timing make for a very, very busy two
days on our roadways.
Of special concern for law enforcement: Pedestrians who are
trying to cross Overseas Highway to attend the Original
Marathon Seafood Festival, which is moving from the airport
field to the Marathon Community Park.
It may not seem like such a big move, but it puts cars on the
gulfside and patrons on the oceanside. And crossing U.S. 1 at
that point in the city is always dicey.
Now add the Spring Break traffic bound for Key West. And
the seasonal peaks we get for visitors this time of year anyway.
The recipe is for drivers and pedestrians to not mix safely,
which we all hope won't happen.
To that end, Monroe County Sheriff's Office deputies will be
out in large numbers to help direct people trying to get to and
from the festival grounds.
The Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce and
Organized Fisherman have secured three free parking lots with
shuttle service. So that can save some pedestrians a mad dash
across Overseas Highway.
In the Upper Keys, the Florida Keys Art Guild has a two-day
festival at the Lorelei, mile marker 82 in Islamorada. The
Purple Isles Art Guild has a show Sunday at the Lion's Club,
mile marker 99.8 behind TIB Bank. And the Winter Festival at
St. Justin the Martyr Catholic Church at mile marker 105.5
always attracts lot of cars and people.
* So as you're out and about this weekend, be kind to your
neighbors and slow down. If you don't need to run errands,
stick close to home. And if you go to the Seafood Festival, the
art shows, carnivals or numerous other happenings this week-
end, please drive carefully and walk with caution especial-
ly anywhere near Overseas Highway.

Keys girl makes the islands proud

Congratulations to Jasmine Paterson, 12, a seventh-grader at
Key Largo School.
She is one of two girls from Florida selected to play on the
National Select Team, which is part of the Super Youth League
National Olympic Development effort.
Jasmine plays for the Coral Shores High School junior-varsi-
ty soccer team and the Kendall Soccer Coalition. Her proud
father, Arthur Paterson, coaches for the Kendall club and Coral
Shores.
Last July, Jasmine played on a Keys soccer squad, dubbed the
Hurricanes, which beat 23 other teams in the under-14 division *
to be crowned champion of the American Youth Soccer
Organization National Games held in Chicago.
Clearly, coaches from around the circuit are taking notice of
the talent here in the Keys.

Foundation helps the most vulnerable


EDITOR:
In a recent letter to the editor, Ms. Vera Nigh
so graciously thanked the Center for Independent
Living of the Keys for our assistance and claimed
the center is "staffed by Samaritans." She's right!
As executive director, I am thrilled to say that
my staff comprises the most unbelievable and
caring people around and go above and beyond
to help people with disabilities live as independ-
ently as possible. They work tirelessly toward
that goal, usually with little recognition, so we
are very appreciative of Ms. Nigh's kind words
about the center and specifically about Ms. Diana
Ross.
That being said, we can't take the credit for
this one. As a nonprofit, our resources are very
limited, so we work closely with other nonprofits,
social-service organizations and foundations
committed to helping the local community. By
working together, we can do so much more than
any of us could ever do alone.
In Ms. Nigh's case, we were heartbroken to
hear about her situation and were happy to help


in the ways that we could, but unfortunately did
not have the dollars needed to provide the reim-
bursement referenced in her letter to the editor. In
this instance, we contacted the Coldwell Banker
Schmitt Charitable Foundation, which was able
to provide the funds to assist Ms. Nigh.
That foundation has risen to the occasion
many different times when we have contacted
them regarding the needs of truly disadvantaged
consumers with disabilities. In many instances,
they have made the difference between someone
being able to continue to live independently or
not. In this case, the true Samaritans are the folks
at the Coldwell Banker Schmitt Charitable
Foundation, without whom we would be forced
to turn away consumers when our resources were
not sufficient to assist them.
A big thanks to the foundation for continuing
to be an amazing community partner in helping
meet the needs of our community's most vulnera-
ble populations.

Florida City decision a good one for the Keys


EDITOR:
As mayor of Monroe County, I was pleased to
read that Atlantic Civil and Lennar have opted to
forego the large-scale development south of
Florida City.
I have watched this development move
through the permitting process with great con-
cern. First as a resident, then as a commissioner
and now as mayor, the possible irrevocable dam-
age from such a development to one of the
nation's most environmentally fragile and eco-
logically diverse areas is a cause for anxiety. The
gateway to the Keys is an area that needs our
protection in order to ensure that future genera-
tions can enjoy our two national parks, and to
ensure the quality of life for the residents and
visitors of the Florida Keys.
Every hurricane season, we are reminded how
vulnerable we are in South Florida, in particular


the Florida Keys. The traffic leaving the Keys
through Card Sound Road during an evacuation
already creates a backlog. The proposed addition
of 6,000 homes and 18,000 residents would have
created congestion beyond imagination and put
our ability to evacuate the Florida Keys in jeop-
ardy.
Any development on this site needs to pro-
ceed under the strict level of scrutiny and the
developers must be held to the highest standards.
It would be preferable to reintegrate this area to
the Everglades restoration. However, given the
unlikelihood of that occurring, I hope that state
and federal regulators will be prudent as they
move forward in granting any permits for rock
mining.

Monroe County mayor


Village decisions again cost the taxpayers


EDITOR:
To no one's surprise, Glen and Virginia Sager
have won their case against Islamorada [challeng-
ing a ban on formula retail stores]. When the Duck
Tours won its case in Key West, the handwriting
was on the wall. But that did not stop the village
from pushing forward with its hopeless case.
Now the taxpayers of the village have to fork
over $600,000 plus attorneys fees, which will be
considerable. No sooner did I get the news, I
heard one local politician spout they're going to
appeal and drag it out while they come up with
architectural standards and other restrictive meas-
ures. Give me a break, enough is enough.
The judge hit it on the head when he proclaimed
"the village has not demonstrated that it has any
small-town community to preserve." Finally.
The village cannot even come up with a city-
hall design at a cost of $400,000. Then there is
the interest we have paid for a loan to build that
city hall that we cannot design. Let's see,
$600,000 plus legal fees, plus $400,000, plus the
interest on the loan. We are starting to talk about
some serious money.
I am perfectly willing to accept, on behalf of
the Village of Islands, the resignations of all
council members and I will further supply trans-


portation back to Miami for the village legal team
that has guided them to this costly debacle.
Once this mess is cleaned up, we can offer to
sell the village. The time is right and so is the
price. Win-win.
Charles Rossignol

Willi T-shirts were speech


EDITOR:
Re: The recent letter to the
editor, "You can't selectively
embrace free speech." That is
precisely what has been done by
the County Commission.
The pro-Tom Willi T-shirt
wearers were allowed in and then
ceremoniously removed or cov-


ered up the shirts, thus allowing
them to make a very loud collec-
tive thumbs-down to any propos-
al to remove Willi. They were not
ejected.
Don't try to tell me nobody
knew about the shirts.

Marathon


Final chance to check donations


EDITOR:
For those of us who follow the
cross currents of city affairs,
Tuesday's upcoming Marathon City
Council election holds a certain
fascination.
For me, I always find it interest-
ing to learn who got donations
from whom and in what amount. In
particular, I wonder why an indi-
vidual would spend a significant
sum on his or her own election or
why donor X supports candidate Y.
The optimist in me has one set of
answers to these questions while
my cynical side has another.
Unfortunately, the real answers
come only long after the election is '
over and that's just the way it is.
However, there is one clue that
might shed some sliver of sunshine
on the election process before the


vote. This is the contribution, if
any, made just prior to Election
Day and just after the print dead-
line for the local papers. In this
small window of time, a donor can
make a contribution that will not
appear publicly, in the papers, until
after the election is over. What
election influence might or might
not result from knowledge of such
last-minute donations is hard to
say, since voters may not really
care much about this kind of thing.
Still, for anyone who is serious-
ly interested in matters, which
might be considered a look under
the carpet, late donation informa-
tion is available at the county elec-
tions office on 63rd Street just
before [Tuesday's] vote.

New council needs to listen to residents


EDITOR:
Marathon city elections are
Tuesday and this is our chance to
replace the current horde of profes-
sional politicians with people that
represent the feelings and aspira-
tions of our community.
The movement to un-incorporate
Marathon, contrary to what Mayor
Chris Bull said in a recent guest
column, continues going strong and
you will be hearing about planned
workshops for this summer.
We need to understand we have
a systemic problem at the City
Council. Re-electing the same kind
of people or the old ones that have
decided to run again is not going to
cut it. Voting for any of these peo-
ple is giving them our approval to
continue screwing us.
We need a fresh-eyes approach.
We also need to have an impartial
ethics committee with the authority
to remove any elected official
involved in corrupt deals with big
business in Marathon.
It is too late to implement any
major changes right now. It is my
hope that whoever is elected will
pay attention to the following
issues that bother the voters in
Marathon:
+ The obscene cost of the new
firehouse.
+ Unregulated growth of city
government without any substantial
benefit to the community.
Rumors about the construc-


tion of another firehouse in Grassy
Key.
Who is going to get screwed
and who is going to get rich with
construction of the new sewer sys-
tem.
Excessive cost of a new city
hall.
+ City personnel rubberstamp-
ing developers' obscene greed and
putting roadblocks on the paths of
regular citizens and small business-
es.
Unfair application of code
enforcement favoring big business.
Total disregard for needs and
concerns of residents of Grassy
Key.
Lack of response from elected
officials to e-mails or phone calls
from common citizens; however,
when their business partners call,
they jump.
+ Lack of response to commu-
nity needs such as timely removal
of trash, maintenance of parks and
recreation areas, etc.
+ Excessive taxation and insur-
ance rates.
Gradual disappearance of the
affordable hotel rooms to give way
to the overpriced condos to the
detriment of local business.
I don't need more proof that the
city of Marathon is not working
and that we made a mistake voting
for incorporation.

Tax reform welcome, but


not on backs of the poor


Watching whose ox is getting gored has
always been one of the favorite spectator
sports in Tallahassee when the Florida
Legislature is in session.
This year's three-ring circus is especial-
ly compelling because of the size of the
elephants performing and high stakes of
seeing which ones will stumble.
House Speaker Marco Rubio has the
entire state as his audience with his pro-
posal to eliminate or significantly reduce
property taxes and impose higher state
sales taxes instead.
If you've been following the debate in
the daily papers or on Web reports from
the state capitol, you can tell the stakes
this year are big: $5.8 billion
in one version being touted.
That's how much money in
local property taxes the speak-
er hopes to wrest away from
local governments, chiefly
counties, cities and school
boards that rely on property
taxes as their chief funding
source.
Actually, his proposal is to
force those local jurisdictions
to roll back their millage rates
to collect the same amount of
property taxes they did in Wayne I
2000-01, before the super- Keynoter
heated real estate market
drove up property values.
Those increases in tax rolls helped fuel
unprecedented new revenue streams for
local taxing authorities.
And now some lawmakers like Rubio
would like to put the brakes on that par-
ticular gravy train.
You likely won't be surprised that other
legislators don't agree with him.
In fact, the Florida Senate has not yet
embraced his controversial plan, moving
a bit more cautiously and looking at a
rollback of sorts to 2004 or 2005.
Indeed, one of the best-known econo-
mists in the state, Hank Fishkind, was
trotted out Thursday by the Florida
Association of Counties to counter the
speaker's proposal.
Fishkind was asked to explain to a
Senate committee where the extra money
from property taxes went since 2001.
His figures were illuminating:
There were $11.3 billion in property tax
increases statewide since 2001.
Of that,- $4.2 billion went to Florida
schools, according to Fishlind's report in
The Miami Herald. Another $3.9 billion
went to counties and $1.7 billion to cities.
Susan Latvala, president of the Florida
Association of Counties, talked of dire
consequences during her Senate testimo-
ny, which was reported by the Herald
capitol bureau's Mary Ellen Klas.
She quotes Latvala as warning about
"hastily crafted, one-size-fits-all solutions
that could severely handicap our citi-


The Senate has proposed another way
of curbing runaway property taxes by
changing Florida law on how properties
are valued for the tax roll.
Current law requires property apprais-
ers to follow "highest and best use" when
setting values.
At least one Senate plan would substi-
tute values based on current use, which
could significantly impact those commer-
cial properties being used now for work-
force housing.
One thing is certain.
The easy ride for some homeowners,
shielded by Save Our Homes, has meant a
rough and bumpy road for
other property owners, espe-
cially those who have been hit
with double-digit increases in
property taxes and windstorm
rates the past few years.
We write often about the cri-
sis in workforce housing here
in the Keys.
What's happened in the past
three years clearly underscores
that we not alone in this who-
can-afford-paradise bubble.
But watching state legisla-
larkham tors try to amputate a limb to
Publisher save the patient from hemor-
rhaging makes us extremely
nervous.
Here's hoping cooler heads in
Tallahassee will take the good intentions
of reducing tax burdens across all eco-
nomic and social strata, rather than hit the
poor with a 41 percent hike in state sales
taxes as a way to provide property tax
relief.



While talking about Tallahassee, here's
an important reminder about windstorm
insurance rates.
The victories achieved during January's
special session are welcome, but the war
is not yet won.
What lawmakers managed is a tempo-
rary fix with a big price tag looming down
the road if Florida gets hit with a cata-
strophic storm.
So there's more work to be done and the
members of Fair Insurance Rates in
Monroe (FIRM) hope to sign up more
members to increase awareness that
insurance reform needs more work during
this year's legislative session.
If you haven't had a chance to talk with
FIRM members or sign up, you'll have a
wonderful opportunity today and Sunday.
Just stop by their booth at the Original
Marathon Seafood Festival. You can
enjoy some wonderful cooking, great
entertainment and enroll as a citizen sol-
dier in this ongoing war for fair insurance
rates.

Residents worry
about effects
of chemical
By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com

The Florida Keys Electric
Cooperative is putting on hold a
program in Key Largo to inject
trees with a growth retardant
after complaints from residents,
a spokeswoman from the co-op
said.
The treatment will be post-
poned indefinitely to allow resi-
dents to weigh in, after which
time the utility may or may not
try to resume the project,
spokeswoman Rebecca Calla-
han said.
The Florida Public Service
Commission has a mandate that
requires electric companies to
keep power lines clear of trees,
Callahan said. Because of the
mandate, she said the FKEC has
to cut many trees back, and
sometimes has to cut trees
down.
The FKEC wanted to give
residents another option that
could save their trees, she said.
During the week of Feb. 25,
Callahan said the FKEC distrib-
uted door hangers to two neigh-
borhoods in Key Largo that had
a high number of trees that
needed to be cut back.
The door hangers, she said,
gave homeowners the option of
allowing the FKEC to use
Cambistat on their trees, a tree-
growth regulator made of a
chemical called Paclobutrazol.
Cambistat is Environmental
Protection Agency-approved
and makes trees grow "bushier,"
she said, instead of taller.
According to the Cambistat
Web site, the chemical makes
trees grow slower.
The chemical has low to no
toxicity, Callahan said, and has
low soil mobility, meaning it
won't move far beyond the area
of application.
Some residents don't believe
that.
"It seems like a bad idea to
spray this in the Keys where it is
likely to make its way onto the
reef," Michael Chenoweth,
president of the Upper Keys
Citizens Association, said in a
letter to his neighbors. "There is
a dearth of information on its
effects."
The FKEC would hire pro-
fessional applicators from
Spraymax Inc. to apply


Cambistat, Callahan said.
Despite the company's name,
Cambistat is not applied by
spraying. The only approved
application methods include
injecting a Cambistat solution
into the ground, according to
product literature from Rainbow
Treecare, a Cambistat dealer.
Spraymax Inc. was not avail-
able for contact at press time.
"I think some misinforma-
tion was spread by word of
mouth," Callahan said. "It
seems that people thought we
were going to spray all over the
place and that's not the case."
She said the FKEC is recep-
tive to resident concerns and
will not proceed if the commu-
nity does not want the treat-
ment.
Michael Black, a resident of
Ocean Isles Estates, one area
that received the door hangers,
said he's worried the chemical is
more toxic than the FKEC
knows.
"I have a 5-year-old daughter
that climbs the trees," he said.
"She plays with the leaves and
uses them to make collages. I'm
worried for her safety."
The FKEC is a "green" com-
pany, Callahan said, meaning
it's environmentally friendly.
Callahan said the cooperative
has an environmental biologist
on staff that researched the
effects of the chemical on the
environment for a full year
before moving forward with the
treatment.
The biologist found no dan-
ger to the environment, she said.
"Cambistat is less toxic than
a lot of chemicals that people
use on their lawns," Callahan
said. "But if anyone's con-
cerned, we're not going to do
this."
Another Ocean Isles resi-
dent, Sara Bellmund, Black's
wife, said she thinks the chemi-
cal is too toxic to use here in the
Keys.
"I don't think it's anything
mean intention on [the FKEC's]
part, but I think they just don't
get it," Bellmund said.
Gus Rios, manager for the
Florida Department of Environ-
mental .Protection in the Florida
Keys, said that as long as
Cambistat is EPA-approved and
used within manufacturer guide-
lines, it's not a matter that his
department oversees. The
Florida Department of Agricul-
ture handles these issues, he
said.

Johnson statues not feeling the love


Tourists say
they get in way
of buoy photos
By CHRISTINE BRADEN
cbraden@keynoter.com

At first glance, the artwork
titled "New Friends" does not
seem to be making any.
Stiff smiles and rigid stares
from seven life-size painted
bronze statues now greet visitors
who trek to the Southernmost
Point in Key West, a gift to the
city from sculptor Seward
Johnson. The statues were
installed Wednesday.
However, for many visitors,
the sculptures are not the greet-
ing they expected.
"Honestly,, I was kind of
shocked that they were there,"


said Marty Sanderson, visiting
with his wife, Kim, from
Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.
Like many Keys tourists, the
Sandersons had long planned to
visit the Southernmost Point to
take a photo in front of the
famous buoy that denotes the 90-
mile mark from neighboring
Cuba.
"For me personally, I'd rather
do without" the statues,
Sanderson said,
Several other visitors were
also taken aback by Johnson's
sculptures during a quick survey
Thursday afternoon.
Visitors Randy and Brenda
Stump from West Virginia were
not thrilled the statues are now
almost unavoidably in every
photo with the buoy.
"I didn't like it," Brenda said.


She said friends who had vis-
ited Key West pre-statues had
heard about the display, and had
a similar reaction.
"[My friend] made the com-
ment that she didn't think they
were a good idea," Brenda
Stump said. "My opinion is:
They should go."
"I would have rather that they
were not here," visitor Janice
Hanson also said.
The statues are supposed to
represent the world's differing
ethnicities.
Hanson said she thought they
represented Cubans and
Americans. That could be an
easy misunderstanding, since
there are no signs to explain the
sculptures' presence.
"I don't know who they are or
what they represent," Sanderson
said.
However, not everyone is
opposed to the sculptures.
"I like them. I think they're
quite good," said Andreas
Berger, visiting Key West with
his family from a small town
near Munich, Germany.
Many tourists seemed
resigned toward integrating the
statues into their photos after
looking for ways in which they
could cut them out.
One couple asked their pho-
tographer to come closer as they
squeezed in to avoid the out-
stretched arms of the sculptures.


Key West Commissioner Clayton Lopez (right) spends some
time visiting with sculptor Seward Johnson at the presentation
of Johnson's statues to the city. The seven life-size painted
bronze statues at the Southernmost Point have been met with
mixed reactions.


The result was a shot that cov-
ered much of the writing on the
buoy and showed none of the
water that stretches out beyond
the southernmost point in the
continental United States.
It's a scenario that several
proponents of the site-specific
statues told the Key West City
Commission would not occur.
It took three times before the
commission for a resolution to


pass allowing the statues' place-
ment. Commissioner Dan
Kolhage sponsored the final res-
olution that will allow the statues
to stay for 60 days. After that,
the city will take another look.
There has been no word on
where the statues will go if the
commission does not renew the
resolution in May to keep the
sculptures created by Johnson, a
Key West homeowner.

Housing a top legislative priority


Mobile homes
a big part of
new proposals
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Affordable housing is no
longer just a Keys issue, and
the state Legislature is looking
at ways to save mobile homes
and house Florida's teachers in
a comprehensive bill under
consideration.
"Florida has got to make a
major change," Key West busi-
nessman Ed Swift said.
The chief executive officer
of Historic Tours of America
has become one of the county's
most outspoken advocates for
workforce housing and is a
member of .the county's
Affordable Housing Task
Force. Though he said he has
not yet read the proposed bill,
he says it's overdue.
"Three years ago, I wrote a
white paper of why the state
needed to pay attention to the
Keys," Swift said. "I wrote that
what's happening in the Keys
will be taking place all over.
Now the coastal counties are in
the same situation we are."
House Bill 259 and its iden-
tical Senate bill, if passed in
their current forms, could begin
to make a dent in some of the
most pressing housing issues.
Among the proposals:
Requirements for local
government to provide finan-
cial assistance to some mobile-
home owners.
+ Requirements for local
governments to permit and
approve rezoning of property to
develop new mobile-home


parks.
Allowing local govern-
ments to enter into develop-
ment agreements that would
encourage continued use for
affordable housing.
+ Providing down-payment
assistance for teachers.
Encouraging counties and
cities to create housing plans
that emphasize recruitment and
retention of teachers.
A means of making
mobile-home residents aware
of their entitlements to com-
pensation from the Florida
Mobile Home Relocation Trust
Fund, while creating late fees
for park owners who do not pay
into the fund in a timely man-
ner.
Locally, the Monroe County
School Board is trying to tackle
the problem of housing for
teachers.
"We're faced with a stagger-
ing turnover in teachers," Swift
said, noting the average loss of
100 teachers annually. The
School District employs about
600 teachers.
"Now overlay the other
moderate-income families in
the community the police
officers, firefighters and it's
the same scenario."
Schools Superintendent
Randy Acevedo says he'd like
to see the state address the
problem of teacher housing dif-
ferently.
"What we need in Monroe
County and other coastal coun-
ties is a housing allowance sep-
arate from the [existing] fund-
ing formula," he said. State
funding for schools is allocated
according to the number of stu-
dents in the district.


"We need to push for a hous-
ing supplement," Acevedo said.
Mobile-home parks, consid-
ered some of the last truly
affordable housing in the Keys;


are fast being redeveloped.
"It is blindingly obvious that
we in the Keys can't build
housing as fast as were losing
it," Swift said. "Any tools or


incentives we can create to
have the owners of trailer parks
maintain rents at affordable
housing is welcome news
indeed."

Yet another
transfer plan
on the table
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County
Commission, in an informal
workshop Wednesday, rejected
the newest proposal by a Florida
developer to exchange a Big Pine
Key trailer park for the right to
transfer market-rate development
to a Key Largo marina.
"We should stick a wooden
stake in the heart of this and not
.give it one minute of our staff
time," said Commissioner
George Neugent, who has repeat-
edly asked the developer to fol-
low the county's planning proce-
dure and leave commission
approval at the end of that
process.
Boca Developers has been try-
ing for the better part of a year to
get the nod from the commission
on an arrangement that would
transfer building rights from the
Seahorse RV Park to the former
Rowell's Marina in Key Largo.

Monroe County Sheriff Rick Roth (center) chats with attorney
Jerry Coleman Wednesday as he and Deputy Greg Korzen
monitor a County Commission workshop. There were rumors of
a potential protest due to Mayor Mario Di Gennaro ejecting a
resident at the Feb. 21 commission meeting, but it didn't arise.


revolved around maintaining
affordable housing at the
Seahorse and using the market-
rate permits from that site in Key
Largo.
In the newest proposal, the
developer is looking to transfer
80 market-rate development
rights from Big Pine to Key
Largo and retain another 11 for
future use. In exchange, it offers
39 development rights back to the
county. In addition, the developer
is offering to donate Seahorse to
the county.
However, the county has no
means for transferring rights
from one region to another, and
any such decision would require
a so-called 380 agreement among
the developer, the county and the
state Department of Community
Affairs.
"The DCA has been very clear
we should do a transfer ordi-
nance" to deal with such issues,
Commissioner Dixie Spehar said.
"Why would we be spending our
staff time trying to do something
[the DCA] clearly said they
would not accept?"
The newest proposal does not
name Boca, instead naming two
new corporations: Sun Vista
Marine Group LLC for the Key
Largo site, and Upper Keys
Acquisitions LLC for the Big
Pine property. All three corpora-
tions are headquartered at the
same address in Deerfield Beach
and show Theodore Stotzer as
their registered agent, according
to the Florida records.
County Mayor Mario Di


Gennaro said he brought the pro-
posal to the workshop to get input
from the others, and out of cour-
tesy to the developer, who has
delayed evicting the residents of
Seahorse while negotiating with
the county and state.
Boca purchased Seahorse a
year ago for $7.85 million. It
acquired the Upper Keys marina
for $6.5 million in 2005.
Upper Keys residents have
been particularly opposed to the
concept of changing the commer-
cially zoned marina to high-end
residences.
Also during the workshop, the
commission agreed with the con-
cept of starting over in the effort
to find a ferry service for Pigeon
Key, the historic landmark island
just west of Marathon.
Bids for the service, which
will provide access to the island
while the old Seven Mile Bridge
is rehabbed over three years,
were opened Feb. 21. According
to County Engineer David
Koppel, each of the five received
did not fully comply with the
county's requirements.
"There are irregularities with
every one of them," Koppel said.
"We would have to waive poli-
cies or procedures for every one
of them to accept any bid."
Because Wednesday's meet-
ing was advertised as a work-
shop, the commission was unable
to take any legal action. Koppel
said he would bring the bid rejec-
tion to the commission's March
21 meeting in Marathon for a for-
mal vote.

Manager panel starts work


Nine appointed
to help find
Avael replacement
By CHRISTINE BRADEN
cbraden@keynoter.comr

The process of finding a new
city manager to replace retiring
City Manager Julio Avael is now
officially underway, since the
Key West City Commission
formed its selection committee
last Tuesday.
More than 75 applications
have poured in for the position
that Avael will vacate Nov. 30,
when his contract expires.
Seeking help in whittling the
list of candidates, the commis-
sion has appointed a selection
committee. The nine-member
panel comprises:
Mayor Morgan McPherson,
who will serve as chairman.
+ Robert Dean, owner of
Dean-Lopez Funeral home and a
board member of the Florida
Keys Aqueduct Authority. He
was appointed by Commissioner
Harry Bethel.
+ Jim Fant, a teacher at Key


West High School. He was
appointed by Commissioner Jose
Menendez.
Scott Frazier, who served as
Commissioner Clayton Lopez's
campaign manager during the
2005 election. He was appointed
by Lopez.
Shirley Freeman, a former
Monroe County commissioner.
She was appointed by Commis-
sioner Bill Verge.
+ Toni Michelle Gage, a Key
West city employee in the
Parking Department. She was
suggested by Avael.
David Paul Horan, a lawyer
and namesake of the Horan,
Horan and Wallace law firm in
Key West. He was appointed by
Commissioner Mark Rossi.
+ Bill Mauldin, chief of the
Key West Police Department
since 2005. He was suggested by
Avael.
Greg Sullivan, Key West
Chamber of Commerce presi-
dent. He was appointed by
Commissioner Dan Kolhage.
The designees will how be
faced with the task of determin-
ing the criteria that will be used to


assess and narrow the candidate
field.
"I don't want this to be subjec-
tive," Kolhage said Tuesday's
commission meeting. "I'd like to
get some real objective facts
[from the candidates] on paper
first."
Kolhage expressed his desire
for the commission to have a fair
amount of input into the search
criteria that will determine the
characTeristics of a viable candi-
date.
According to McPherson, the
commission will get that chance.
"We'll give you guys time for
input before [the committee's
second] meeting and we'll also
have time for public input,
because I'm sure there will be
public input on this," he said.
McPherson also told the com-
mission he plans to develop a
detailed timeline with the com-
mittee. When the committee has
finished its evaluations, it will
present its top recommendations
to the commission for a final
selection of city manager.
The first selection committee
meeting will be Wednesday at 6
p.m. at Old City Hall on Greene
Street. It's open to the public.


Delay in Holt case expected


Murder suspect
rescinds request
for speedy trial
By CHRISTINE BRADEN
cbraden@keynoter.com

Despite a January request for a
speedy trial, the murder case of
25-year-old Johnny Ray Holt
may not be headed to court just
yet.
Holt is accused of murdering
63-year-old botanist Rodger
Keller in his home last March
before.fleeing the state and head-
ing to Georgia.
"The defense has asked that
their motion for a speedy trial be
rescinded," State Attorney's
Office spokesman Matthew
Helmerich said.
Jury selection was set to begin
Monday. But presiding Monroe
County Circuit Court Judge
Wayne Miller is now expected to
approve the defense's latest
motion Monday morning instead.
Approval would put the
brakes on an immediate start to
jury selection and leave the actu-
al trial start date open-ended.
Alabama-native Holt faces life
in prison if convicted.
Police say Keller acquaintance


Michael Sox alerted them to sus-
picious activity at Keller's home
several days after hearing a gun-
shot and then seeing a man driv-
ing away in Keller's car.
When police arrived at the
home, they found Keller's body
in a state of decay, indicating he
had been dead for several days.
Holt was apprehended in
Georgia on March 20, 2006 -
the same day police believe he
killed Keller in his Fourth Street
home.
Police allege Holt burgled his
girlfriend's parents' house in
Danville, Ala., on March 17, tak-
ing a shotgun, rifle, handgun and
pickup truck from the residence.
Upon his getaway, police
believe Holt drove south to Key
West, where he allegedly entered
Keller's house and fatally shot
him when the botanist returned
home from work.
Police believe Holt then stole
Keller's wallet, including identi-
fication and credit cards, before
driving Keller's green 2001
Honda Civic came to the comer
of 5th and Patterson streets and
abandoning it. Police say he then
drove back up north, where he
was pulled over by Georgia
police and taken into custody for


the Alabama burglary charges.
Prior to being charged with
first-degree murder, robbery with
a firearm and burglary of a
dwelling charges, Holt who
lived with Keller for four months
in 2004 was already wanted
by the Key West Police
Department on charges of for-
gery and embezzlement against
Keller.
Keller's death shocked the
community where he lived and
worked.
He was an active member of
the Key West Garden Club, the
local Orchid Society and had
been a part-time botanist and lec-
turer for the Monroe Association
for Retarded Citizens Plant Store
for three days a week since 2004.

Developments seek changes


Key Colony Bay
and Chappy's
head to council
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

Representatives of two
commercial projects years in
the making redevelopment
of the Key Colony Bay Hotel
and development of Chappy's
Restaurant are scheduled to
come before the Marathon
City Council to seek changes
to their development agree-
ments.
The council meeting is
scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
Monday at the Marathon
Government Center. The meet-
ing was moved from Tuesday
due to the city election.
The council is first sched-
uled to hear amendments to a
development agreement and
major conditional use the Key
Colony Bay Hotel near mile
marker 54.
The council in 2005 first


approved the redevelopment of
the Ramada Inn then owned by
the now-deceased Tracy
Holder, who changed the name
to the Key Colony Bay Hotel
and planned to convert the 80-
unit hotel into 72 two-bedroom
condo-hotel units.
Holder's company,
Marathon Hotel Partners, then
entered into negotiations to
sell the property in 2006. This
February, Miami developer
Donahue Peebles closed on the
acquisition for $28.3 million.
According to the recent
amendments, Peebles' owner-
ship group, Key Colony Bay
Development LLC, plans to
add its name to the existing
development agreement as
well as add more commercial
floor area and a sit-down
restaurant.
Plans call for an ultra-luxu-
ry, residential resort called
Manoir Resort Villas on five
acres with 72 furnished, water-
front vacation homes, each
with private elevator and roof
terrace, priced from $1.8 mil-
lion.
Following the resort
amendments will be a pro-


posed one-year extension to a
major conditional use, first
approved in May 2006, for the
development of Chappy's
Restaurant at the base of the
Seven Mile Bridge on Knight's
Key.
According to. the staff
report, applicant Jim Chaplin
has requested an additional
year to submit a building per-
mit application since there
isn't yet a design for the sewer
treatment plant to be built on
Knight's Key as part of the
Earthmark development of the
Knight's Key Campground.
If the Earthmark project is
delayed, the applicant must
submit plans for an on-site
sewage system.
The restaurant is proposed
to be for 238 seats, 5,876
square feet and include a deck,
patio area and swimming pool.
Owners Jim and Bettye
Chaplin have battled for years
to obtain the necessary
changes to the land-use map
and zoning to build the busi-
ness and have also worked out
a lengthy agreement in the
form of deed restrictions with
neighboring property owners
worried about increased noise
and disruption.


Housing grants

Key West's Community
Development Office is con-
ducting two upcoming public

Council revisiting


104th Street issue


City speed
limits also on
Tuesday agenda
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council is
scheduled to meet in regular ses-
sion at 6:30 p.m. Monday at the
Marathon Government Center.
The meeting was moved from
Tuesday to accommodate the
City Council elections. Agenda
items include:
A discussion of options to
build affordable housing on city-
owned property on 104th Street.
The city has a contract for the
Middle Keys Community Land
Trust to develop and manage the
city's affordable housing proj-
ects.
However, the group recently
was denied state funding to build
40 affordable units on the
Marathon property along with 44
units in Islamorada.
Mayor Chris Bull said he
expects the Land Trust to present
a "plan B" to the council,
although some council members
have said it may be time to
explore other options, such as
putting the project out for bid.
The discussion item is sched-
uled under "other new business,"
which would occur near the end
of the council meeting.
An ordinance titled "estab-
lishing a uniform speed zone
throughout the city of
Marathon."
City Manager Mike Puto said
the ordinance would allow the
city to reduce the maximum
speed limit on city streets, such
as Aviation Boulevard and
Sombrero Beach Road, to 25
mph, as well as adjust speed lim-
its on. other residential city
streets when necessary.
A discussion of a city cus-
tomer service initiative, the city
attorney's monthly report and an
appointment to the city's housing
task force.
A resolution rescinding a
city policy requiring that people
living in or using waters above
submerged lands to enter into a
submerged-land lease with the
city.
According to the staff report,
city staff has pursued such leases
and run into complications and
unexpected administrative costs.
Staff is recommending that peo-
ple affected be permitted to use
the waters without need of exe-
cuting a lease.


According to City Finance
Director Peter Rosasco, the city
has previously collected a lease
payment from one lessee totaling
$1,403.89, which will be refund-
ed if the resolution is passed and
the policy, is rescinded. The
refund would be paid from the
marina enterprise fund.
Consent agenda items
(approved without discussion
during the approval of the agen-
da) include:
A resolution directing the
Planning Department to defer
accepting and processing build-
ing-permit allocation applica-
tions beginning Wednesday and
ending May 7.
The council recently
approved new land development
regulations, which include a new
permit allocation system to
replace the city's current rate-of-
growth ordinance.
The new system would award
applicants points based on the
environmental qualities and
buildable qualities of vacant lots
and limit the amount of points
applicants could receive from
donating conservation lands to
the city.
The staff report states this
deferment would give planning
staff enough time to transition to
the new permitting system.
An amendment to a major
conditional use for redevelop-
ment of the Grassy Key Marina,
including a new restaurant, con-
venient store with four new fuel
pumps, 7,343 square feet of retail
space, a fast-foot store, an-office
and maintenance of the existing
26-slip marina with one marine
fuel pump and a tiki hut.
An agreement with Public
Resources Management Group
Inc. for a sewer-rate study in an
amount not to exceed $29,800.
An agreement with the-
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection for a
sewer grant totaling $1 million.
An agreement with
Government Services Group Inc.
for a work plan to implement a
citywide non-ad valorem waste-
water assessment program in an
amount not to exceed $52,500.
A lease agreement with the
state's Internal Improvement
Trust Fund to manage city prop-
erties purchased for environmen-
tal conservation. Management of
the properties would include
removal of invasive exotic
species, and preventing dumping
and encroachment by neighbor-
ing property owners.

Members of our City Council are called

issues like spending and public safety.
Decisions that affect you and your family.


THE ULTIMATE

REAL ESTATE EXPERIENCE
When you are buying high-end real estate, it is only natural to expect the process to be a memo-
rable event. A skilled real estate broker can maximize the ease and pleasure of your purchase by
handling every aspect of the luxury transaction. You need someone who has lived in the Keys for a
while and has had similar experiences that you seek.
Your search for a suitable property will be enjoyable when you work with a broker who has a
thorough knowledge of the local inventory of homes and the characteristics of the area. If you are
a boater interested in buying a multi-million dollar home on the water, you will want a broker to
give you a complete description of the shoreline, control depth and accessibility in a particular loca-
tion so you can decide if it meets your needs. Your broker will show you properties that exclusively
fit the architectural style, square footage, views and amenities you prefer, and preserve your privacy
during the transaction.
A knowledgeable realtor will be able to offer you a taste of the lifestyle you will purchase along
with your luxury home.

Comments taken
on Everglades,
Tortugas until April
The National Park Service
is proposing doubling its per-
person and per-car entrance
fees to Everglades and Dry
Tortugas national parks, and
boosting the cost for yearly
passes.
A public comment period
has opened and runs through
April 23.
The proposed entrance fee
increases at Everglades
National Park for both the
main entrance and Shark
Valley are from $5 per person
to $10 per person; from $10
per vehicle to $20 per vehicle;
and for the annual pass, from
$25 per year to $40 annually.
The proposed increases at
Dry Tortugas National Park
are from $5 per person to $10
per person; for the annual
pass, from $25 per year to
$40.
According to the Park
Service, the agency has ana-
lyzed entrance fees across the
national park system in an
attempt to simplify and stan-
dardize fees.
The analysis resulted in a
pricing structure that used a
tier grouping system for parks


based on their enabling legis-
lation, comparability of size
and services available, visita-
tion statistics, current revenue,
and comparisons with state
and local parks.
The proposed fees for
Everglades and Dry Tortugas
national parks align with fees
charged at other similar
national parks, according to
the Park Service.
To keep entrance fees
aligned with cost increases,
beginning in 2011, the fees
will be adjusted based on
changes to the cumulative
Consumer Price Index calcu-
lated from 2007 to 2011. This
same analysis will be conduct-
ed every three years thereafter
and fees adjusted accordingly.
Non-annual park entry fees
will continue to be valid for
seven days.
The Park Service says 80
percent of entrance and other


Keynoter


user fees are returned directly
to the parks where they are
collected in the form of facili-
ties, and natural and cultural
resource preservation.
Following the comment
period, a recommendation on
increases will be developed
and submitted to the National
Park Service Washington,
D.C., office for final review
and action.
Written comments may be
mailed to: Proposed Fee
Increase, superintendent,
Everglades and Dry Tortugas
national parks, 40001 State
Road 9336, Homestead, FL
33034-6733. Comments may
also be e-mailed to
ever_rangeractivities@nps.go
v. Comments must be received
by close of business April 23.
Further information or
questions can- be directed to
(305) 242-7730


In an emergency or
disaster, the importance
of the Council's decisions
is magnified.
This Tuesday, you must
decide who you trust to
make these decisions.


During my previous tenure on the Council,
our community recovered from Hurricane
Wilma. I made the right choices then to save
our City money, and to plan for the future.
I will use sober judgment to make sound
decisions for our City, without the need for
on-the-job training. I'll appreciate your trust
and your vote this Tuesday.

7-year-old run
over by golf cart

A 7-year-old girl was hospital-
ized in serious condition
Thursday after she was run over
by a golf cart at the Ocean Reef
Club in North Key Largo, accord-
ing to the Florida Highway
Patrol.
Troopers said that about 10:45
a.m., Amanda Ramos, 19, was
driving the cart when the girl,
Alexia Elliot, attempted to get on
and slipped on gravel. Ramos
apparently didn't see Elliott
behind the cart and backed up
over her.
Elliot was taken to Miami
Children's Hospital.

Report: Dad tells son
to shoot other man

A 14-year-old Tavernier boy
was arrested Thursday evening
after he shot a man in the fore-
head and back with two BB guns,
according to the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office.
Deputies Ian Barnett and
Robert Dosh were dispatched to
Caribbean Avenue at 8 p.m. to
reports of a fight. When they
arrived, they found Edward
Hoffman, 48, sitting in his drive-
way. He said he'd just been in a
fight with a neighbor, James
Etchells, 46.
Hoffman reported that during
the fight, he called for help from
his son Andrew, 14, telling him to
call 911 and to get their pellet
gun. He said he told the boy to
shoot Etchells with the gun.


At that point, according to
everyone involved, Andrew
Hoffman got two pellet guns
from inside the house and shot
Etchells with both of them at the
same time.
Andrew Hoffman was
charged with aggravated battery
and booked at the Monroe
County Detention Center before
being released to the Department
of Juvenile Justice.

Man is injured
when car overturns

A Key Largo man was airlift-
ed to Ryder Trauma Center
Friday morning after his car
flipped at mile marker 97.5.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, John Hamlen,
76, was traveling north and began
to veer into the U.S. 1 median. He
then struck a rock with the front
left part of the auto, then hit
another. The car overturned, end-
ing up facing partially blocking
the left inside lane.
Hamlen was not wearing a
seatbelt, according to troopers.

Cassie's lost
her hearing,
can't echolocate
By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com

A dolphin that stranded
itself near Fort Pierce Nov. 14,
now known as Castaway, or
Cassie, will not be released to
the ocean.
The dolphin was trans-
ferred to the Marine Mammal
Conservancy in Key Largo
from the Mote Marine
Laboratory in Sarasota after
staff at Mote unsuccessfully
tried to release her to the wild
three times Jan. 30.
According to reports on the
conservancy Web site, audiol-
ogy testing and charting of her
vocal range has confirmed that
she is "essentially deaf."
"A dolphin basically views
the world through sound," the
Web site states. Without her


hearing, she won't be able to
echolocate, which is how dol-
phins find food, communicate
with her pod, find her way or
avoid predatory dangers, it
says.
The conservancy volun-
teers say they are fairly cer-
tain the remainder of Cassie's
years will be in an environ-
ment with humans.
An ultrasound on March 4
confirmed that Cassie's
unborn calf is healthy and
should be born in less than
two months, according to the
report.
The conservancy reported
that Cassie responds well to
her primary caregivers and is
cooperative with necessary
medical procedures.
Her healthy appetite allows
conservancy staff to feed her a
well-rounded diet and they say
they provide socialization for
her, including physical thera-
py and swimming interaction.

Teacher bonuses
would be doled
out locally
Associated Press

Florida's much-criticized
performance-pay program for
teachers would be repealed
and local school boards given
more flexibility in deciding
how to award bonuses, under a
bill that Wednesday unani-
mously cleared a Senate com-
mittee.
The Special Teachers are
Rewarded, or STAR, program
the Legislature created last
year has drawn nearly univer-
sal opposition from teachers
and their local and statewide
unions. Many local school
officials also don't like it.
Critics say STAR relies too
much on student test scores,
unfairly limits the number of
teachers who can get.bonuses
and destroys the teamwork
needed for good schools by
fostering competition among
teachers. School officials also
say the Legislature gave them
too little time to put the pro-
gram into effect.
"Thank you for stopping
the STAR wars," Broward
County School Board member
Eleanor Sobel told the
Senate's prekindergarten-12
education committee. "Thank
you for stopping the insanity."
STAR calls for a quarter of
Florida's teachers to receive a
5 percent bonus, an average of
about $2,000, based largely on
how much their students
improve on the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment


Test (FCAT) or other standard-
ized exams.
The bill (SB 1226) spon-
sored by Sen. Don Gaetz, R-
Niceville, does have a testing
requirement, but local school
boards would determine how
much it would count toward a
teacher's assessment under a
new, more flexible Merit
Award Program.
The bill also would give
boards discretion to award
bonuses to as few as 5 percent
of teachers and in-school
administrators, or as many as
80 percent. The more bonuses
awarded, though, the less each
person would get.
"This is the most flexible
bill on this that we have seen,"
said Florida Education
Association President Andy
Ford said. "It's understand-
able, and it is much better than
anything that we are currently
living under."
The statewide teachers
union leader, though, told the
committee revamping per-
formance pay won't stop
teachers from leaving the
classroom for better paying
jobs. Only raising base pay
will do that, Ford said.
Gov. Charlie Crist has
advocated only a minor
change in the $147.5 million
STAR program to give greater
weight to evaluations by prin-
cipals. He also wants to dou-
ble the bonuses to 10 percent
but would continue to limit
them to the top 25 percent of
teachers, a major complaint of
STAR critics.
Like the Senate legislation,
a bill in the House proposes


more flexible criteria. The
House version sets a perform-
ance formula without any limit
on how many teachers can
qualify.


House sponsors, though,
have estimated 25 percent of
teachers, the same level that
Crist advocates, would qualify
under the formula. Also, the


House bill would require that
testing count 60 percent
toward a teacher's assessment
and the principal's evaluation
40 percent.

Four candidates
are vying for
three open seats

I Just two days after the city of
Key Colony Beach celebrates its
50th anniversary on Sunday, vot-
ers will be able to make a state-
ment about the city's future in a

DeGraw, Ron Sutton and Jeff
Vorick are trying to defend their

Stevens.
Voters will cast ballots for up
to three candidates, and the three
with the most votes will be elect-
ed to two-year terms.
The incumbents have stated
esires to continue working
going issues such as the place-
ent of utility wires under city
streets, addressing sewer and
boat-ramp problems, and work-
ing out a new contract for fire
and emergency medical services
with the city of Marathon.
Challenger Stevens said he's
not running against any candi-
dates or any particular stances by
the commission, but simply
wants to lend a new voice to the


ny votes Tuesday

Census updating stats


Agency looks at
income, poverty,
health insurance
Nearly 2,000 U.S. Census
Bureau field representatives
have been sent out to interview
about 100,000 households
across the nation for the Annual
Social and Economic
Supplement to the monthly
Current Population Survey).
Interviews for the CPS-
ASEC, which is co-sponsored
by the Bureau of Labor Statistics
and the Census Bureau, started
Feb. 18 and run through April
15, 2007.
Before the survey, local
households selected in the
nationwide sample should have
received an informational letter
from Census Bureau Director
Louis Kincannon. Some partici-
pants are interviewed by tele-
phone and others are inter-
viewed in person by field repre-
sentatives who carry official
identification.
Every month, Census Bureau


field representatives ask selected
households questions relevant to
the U.S. labor force, such as
their employment status, hours
worked, earnings, age, sex, race,
marital status, educational
attainment, occupation and
industry. From these answers
come estimates of the unem-
ployment rate, released monthly
by the Bureau of Labor
Statistics.
Results from the CPS-ASEC
also enable the following high-
profile indicators to be updated:
Median household income, offi-
cial poverty rate and percentage
of people without health insur-
ance.
"The CPS is the primary
source of information for state
and local governments, and
businesses regarding the coun-
try's labor force," said George
Grandy Jr., director of. the
Census Bureau's Atlanta region-
al office.
The Census Bureau's month-
ly Current Population Survey -
which dates from 1942 is the
longest-running household sur-
vey in the country.

New electronics
store opens in
Big Pine 'mall'
By STEVE SANOSKI
Keys Sunday reporter
ssanoski@keynoter.com

Apparently starved for cell
phones, plasma televisions, car
stereos and a wide range of other
electronic gadgets, Lower Keys
residents are wasting no time in
welcoming Radio Shack to the
Winn-Dixie Shopping Center on
Big Pine.
Since opening little more
than a month ago, owner Ian
Calderwood is well on his way


to developing a case of carpal
tunnel syndrome from filling out
merchandise orders.
"In the first three weeks I've
already ordered 75 percent of
my annual purchase minimums
through the company,"
Calderwood said.. "People are
coming in every day and thank-
ing me for finally opening an
electronics store in Big Pine."
Chief among customers'
needs thus far cell phones and
cell phone chargers.
"There's nowhere else to buy
cell phones in Big Pine,"
Calderwood said, "and cell
phone chargers we're going
though 20-some a day it's


nuts."
In addition to being able to
shop for electronic necessities
locally, Calderwood said Lower
Keys residents have been
pleased with the selection of
specialty electronics and mer-
chandise in the Big Pine store.
"We have everything a stan-
dard Radio Shack has, but we
also carry a lot of stuff nobody
else has and provide services
you can't get elsewhere," he
said. "This is not the usual Radio
Shack most people are used to
seeing, it's really a full electron-
ics/audio store."

Lodging leaders recognize efforts


Mayfield, Wagner,
others honored
at awards banquet
Max Mayfield, who recently
retired as director of the
National Hurricane Center, and
Billy Wagner, former head of
emergency management for
Monroe County, both won top
awards at the Lodging Associa-
tion of .the Florida Keys and
Key West's annual awards ban-
quet March 2 at the Westin Key
West Resort & Marina.
Chairwoman Heather
Carruthers selected both for the


board-chair awards in recogni-
tion of their dedication to the
safety and well-being of the
people of Monroe County.
Matt Babich of Southern-
most Resorts received a board-
chair award in "recognition of
his unflagging dedication to
the Lodging Association and
the tourism economy of the
Florida Keys."
The top award presented
each year, in memory of lodg-
ing pioneer Margo Golan, went
to the group of Keys volunteers
who ltuilcped Fair Insurance
Rates in Monroe (FIRM).


Because Carruthers served
on FIRM's founding commit-
tee, the association's board of
directors voted on the Margo
Golan award to FIRM.
Recipients of the annual
award are chosen because they
"not only engage in business or
public affairs honestly,- but are
examples to others," the board
states. "They should not only
help the tourism industry, but
make such important contribu-
tions that their mark will be
long remembered and a part of
history of this island."

Are you addicted to e-mail?


Admitting problem
may be first
step to recovery
By ALEX L. GOLDFAYN
McClatchy Tribune

A Pennsylvania woman call-
ing herself life and business
coach for executives has been
making a lot of news over the
past week talking about e-mail
addiction.
Marsha Egan has been touting
her 12-step program for curing e-
mail addiction.
Dubious, I brought this up on
my radio show. A woman called
who said she checks her
BlackBerry every time it chirps
that a new message has arrived.
Even at 2 a,m.
How many times a day does it


chirp?
Sixty, she estimated.
Surely she is the exception.
Normal people don't interrupt
their day countless times for
every e-mail that comes in. Do
they?
I phoned Egan.
"Go ahead," I dared her. "Do
your thing with me. Sure, I go
through lots of e-mail every day,
but I'm not addicted. I don't
think I'm addicted."
"I'm not a psychiatrist, so I'm
not qualified to determine
whether you're addicted," Egan
said. "But I can help you deter-
mine if you have some bad habits
that are not serving you well."
Seemed reasonable, but I dug
in. I greeted her with silence.
"Are you interested in finding
more time to do what's truly


important in your life?" Egan
asked.
"Sure," I responded.
This was the wrong answer,
because right then she began'to
jujitsu me.
"So we've established that
you might be open to changing
some of your current habits if
you can find more time," she
started. "Do you feel like you are
managing your e-mail or that
your e-mail is managing you?
Are you reactive or proactive
about your e-mail?"
I look at it and respond to it
almost always when it comes in.
"We have opportunities here,
Alex."
Oh?
"How many times a' day,
when you're working on some-
thing, does e-mail interrupt you
when it flashes on your screen?"
she asked me.
Uh-oh.
I get about 100 e-mails a day.
And I probably look at my e-mail
program every 15 minutes. I told
her, and then I blushed.
"So conservatively, let's say
you work eight-hour days, which
means e-mail interrupts you 32
times per day," Egan continued.
Clearly, she was on the
offense, and I was the Chicago
Bears Super Bowl defense,
retreating helplessly.
"In common time-manage-
ment theory, it's widely known


that it takes an average of four
minutes to recover from an inter-
ruption and get back to work,"
she said.
I laughed nervously. For me,
the length of the interruption
kind of depends on how long the
YouTube video I'm watching is.
Or when that interesting eBay
auction ends. Or, don't tell any-
one, how good the Oprah guest is
this morning.
"I call it i-terrupt, because you
interrupt yourself," she said with
a laugh. A comedian!
Then she went in for the kill.
She became Peyton Manning fin-
ishing off a backbreaking 10-
minute drive with an easy touch-
down pass.
"You've just told me that you
could potentially be spending
128 minutes, which is more than
two hours per day, just recover-
ing from interruption caused by
e-mail.
"That's just interruption
recovery time. It has nothing to
do with whether you've respond-
ed to. the e-mail or not."
My life is horrible. I never
should have called this woman.
"OK, OK, I give up," I nearly
cried. "You're right. I'm addict-
ed. Give me the 12 steps."
For help with your own e-mail
addiction, here are Egan's 12
steps:
+ Admit that your e-mail is
managing you; that you are "e-
ddicted." Let go of your need to
check your e-mail every 10 min-
utes, Egan said.
+ Commit to keeping your in


box empty (I literally have more
than 6,000 messages in my in
box, dating back to the middle of
last year.)
Create folders in your e-
mail program to organize your
messages.
Use broad folder headings.
For example, use a single "bene-
fits" folder rather than separate
ones for dental insurance, life
insurance, etc.
+ Adopt a two-minute rule: If
it can be handled and deleted in
less than two minutes, do it and
delete the e-mail.
Set a target date by which to
completely empty your in box.
Make it realistic and commit to it.
Turn off automatic
send/receive, thereby turning off
interruptions. (This one makes
me twitch.)
+ Establish regular times to
review your e-mail.
+ Involve others in conquer-
ing your addiction. "It's not a
sign of weakness to do," Egan
said. "It's a sign of strength."
+ Reduce the amount of e-
mail you receive. Get a junk fil-
ter. Unsubscribe from unneces-
sary lists.
Keep to one subject per e-
mail and use a detailed subject
line in notes you send.
Celebrate. You have made
it through the 12-step process.
For more help with your
addiction (Egan does teleconfer-
ences and private coaching), visit

New Radio Shack opens


RADIO / From 25

one in the Keys allows
Calderwood to have more con-
trol of his store's selection and
service than managers of corpo-
rate-owned Radio Shack stores.
"I'm really big on customer
service," he said. "Being a fran-
chise owner/operator means I
can still stock exactly what cus-
tomers come in looking for, but I
can sell it to them at a low price
and offer them quality war-
ranties because of our corporate
support."
Inside the store Calderwood
has plans to build a custom
home theater display. Construc-
tion is also under way on a
1,000-square-foot automotive
audio installation and service
center behind the store.
"There's nothing like it in the
Keys," Calderwood said of the
audio installation center. "It's
ridiculous to see all of these nice


vehicles down here, and people
have to hook up their stereo sys-
tems in a parking lot because
there's no installation centers.
We're going to have a large, air-
conditioned space with the best
car audio installers in the area."
Calderwood, a Keys resident
the past 15 years, is no stranger
to Radio Shack. His father man-
aged a Radio Shack when he
was a child. He got his first job
at a Radio Shack at the age of
15. He later managed Key West
Radio Shack for a decade, and
also worked at store locations in
Fort Myers, St. Thomas and
elsewhere.
"I grew up inside Radio
Shack and never really left,"
said Calderwood, who is also
majority owner of Keys Home
Theatre in Key West.
Big Pine Radio Shack is open
9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through
Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
on Sunday.

Key Colony
celebrates 50th
anniversary
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Keys' second oldest
city has reached its golden
anniversary and will celebrate
50 years of incorporation at
the annual Key Colony Beach
Day on Sunday.
The daylong event will be
held outside of City Hall at
600 W. Ocean Drive in Key
Colony Beach. A Shriners pan-
cake breakfast starts at 7 a.m.
followed by a bake sale and
raffle at 8.
Music runs from 8 a.m. to 4
p.m. while patrons can shop at
food and merchandise vendors
and even participate in the
"world-famous" barracuda
races all day. Admission and
parking is free.
While the festivities may be
reason enough to come, the
event also marks a historic
milestone for a community
that was basically underwater
just 60 years ago.
The story of Key Colony
Beach begins with city pioneer
Phil Sadowski, who had devel-
oped several areas of
Marathon and in the early
1950s turned his eye toward a
97-acre mangrove swamp
known as Shelter Key at the
east end of Marathon.
Sadowski began years of
dredging (perfectly acceptable
at that time) to grow the island
into nearly 400 acres of beach-
front property and interior
"fingers" cut by wide canals.
According to historical
information on the city's Web
site, Sadowski feared that an
incorporation movement by
Marathon community leaders
in the mid-1950s could extend
to include control over his
community, now called Key
Colony Beach.
So Sadowski had a Miami
lawyer draft his own articles
of incorporation, which were
passed by the state Legislature
in June 1957. The question to
officially incorporate was
posed to the 11 families then
living in Key Colony and
passed with a 100 percent vote
Sept. 24, 1957.
The first City Commission
was then elected with
Sadowski being appointed the
first mayor the city.
The community quickly

grew, although it experienced
some growing pains in the
form of an unincorporation
movement ironically led by
Sadowski that focused on
high taxes and an apparent rift
growing among residents.
However, the city survived
a 1963 vote, to abolish the


charter and has now grown
into what its leaders call the
"Gem of the Florida Keys."
There are now 857 perma-
nent residents of the city,
although the population swells
to about 3,800 in the winter.
The city currently has 1,414
units of housing in the form of


mostly duplexes, condomini-
ums and single-family homes.
A citywide sewer system
was constructed in the 1960s
and allowed Key Colony to
experience growth unfettered
by the state. The city also
enjoys one of the lowest tax
rates in the Keys.

Yochum tosses 3-hit shutout


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


"Three up...," the outfielders
called out, their hands raised.
"...Three down," retorted the
infielders as they struck a similar
pose at the pitching mound.
That choreographed ritual was
enacted by the Key West High
School softball team before each
inning Tuesday and bespoke the
confidence that gritty pitching


Lady Conchs easily control
Monsignor Pace in softball


and inspired fielding would pre-
vail against a longtime rival.
The Conchs came through in
both departments and the result
was a 4-0 victory against
Monsignor Pace MIAMI
PACE, said the gold letters on the
Spartans' red uniforms in a


District 16-4A game at Key
West's Back Yard ballpark.
The victory improved the
Dave Gootee-coached Conchs'
record to 6-3 overall and 2-0 in
the district. They will play host to
Port St. Lucie at 11 this morning.
Tuesday's game, witnessed by
another packed grandstand on a
sunny afternoon, began as a tight

Lady Fins get district win


But Marathon
allows 5 late
runs at home
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
softball team looked good in a
12-6 win over district opponent
Palmer Trinity Thursday, except
for when the Dolphins allowed
five late-game runs to give
coach Jason Frank yet another
scare.
"Again, we just had that one
inning," said Frank, who on
Monday watched his Lady
Dolphins give up a. lead in the


final inning and eventually lose
to Coral Shores.
On Thursday, the Lady Fins
(3-3) were ahead 11-1 in the
fifth inning and needed three
outs to end the game with the
10-run mercy rule.
But instead, Marathon com-
mitted back-to-back errors,
allowed a hit, a walk and anoth-
er hit, and watched five Falcons
cross home.
"I had to stop the game and
go out and talk to the team, just
to get them to re-focus," Frank
said. "Instead of being comfort-
able with a victory, we need to
go for the jugular and end the
.games, when we can .


Pitcher Megan Gardner then
finished the inning with an out
at first base. The Dolphins got
the final six outs on only seven
Palmer batters.
"A team like Palmer, not
being really good, relies on one
thing hope," Frank said.
"And we gave it to them."
Still, Frank said he was
happy with the win that saw
nearly every Marathon player
reach base at some point.
Marathon scored four runs in
the first on an RBI single from
Abi Meyer, a walk-in and a
two-RBI single from Sarah
Melia.
In the second, Sandahl

Emerson struck out the side in
the first inning and a fourth
strikeout got her out of a jam in
the second created by a tw0-out
triple by Lauren Wells.
Yochum, on her way to a
three-hit shutout, had five strike-

Marathon still
earns a few
key victories
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Key West High School
tennis team again showed its
dominance over rivals at
Marathon Thursday, although
the Dolphins did earn. two key
wins that coaches hope vcll be
something to build on the rest of
the year.
The Conch boys (3-2) sound-
ly defeated the Dolphins (0-3),
5-2, while the Conch girls (4-1)
swept the shorthanded Dolphin
girls (0-5), 6-0.
The highlight for the Conchs
was No. 4 singles girl Laura
Kaczkowski, who turned in a
"golden" set, winning all 32
points in an 8-0 victory over
Marathon's Sarah Bradshaw.
"That's just very rare," Key
West coach Paul Findlaysaid.
"She didn't make one mistake."
No. 1 Gaby Scammacca
defeated Angela Farello, -8-1.
Farello was stepping in for the
Dolphins' regular No. 1 Gaby
Brossard, who has been out
with pneumonia.
"It's up to the doctors
whether she'll be ready to play
soon, but we only have about a
month left in the season,"
Marathon coach Mark Hooper
said. "Hopefully, she can get
back at a minimum for districts
and also for the Conch--Cup
before that."

No. 2 Sara Fitzsimmons
defeated Kelsey Wonderlin, 8-6,
in a hard-fought match, Hooper
said.
"Kelsey has really stepped
up her game," Hooper said.
"She was hitting the ball well,
and when she wasn't hitting it
well, it was because she was hit-
ting it weak. I just told her to
grip it and rip it."
No. 3 Mary Jo Bruce beat
Annabelle Walker, 8-3. In dou-
bles, Key West won both match-
es 8-1.


The Marathon boys led
match play with a win at No. 1,
with Alex Donaldson defeating
Bryce McBantrie, 8-4.
McBantrie was playing in place
of regular Conch No. 1 Nick
Lark.
"It was nice to see Alex get
his first win of the season,"
Hooper said. "He played smart,
kept the ball in play and did not
over-hit. He played really, really
smart tennis."
Hooper was also impressed
with seventh-grader -John
Danaher, who defeated Key
West's Avery Axthelm, 8-6, at
the No. 3 spot.
"John was playing with some
pain, and halfway through the
match I had to talk to him and
make sure he could continue,"
Hooper said. "He had a pulled
muscle in his ribcage, but he
said he was OK, and he went out
and own a real hard match."
Key West's Andre Wallace,
Nick Scammacca and Justin
Tomita won the rest of the sin-
gles matches. Doubles matches
also belong to the Conchs, with
8-5 and 8-3 wins.
Key West will play host to St.

Marathon travels to Miami
today for a doubleheader against

Marathon will meet Coral

alertness of Heather Palladino,
who played flawlessly at short-
stop.
With a runner on second base,
Emerson grounded a ball that
went off third baseman Kayla
Reams' glove. Palladino fielded
the deflection and tagged the
runner before she could reach
third.
The Conchs scored all of their
four runs in the bottom of the
third, a rally ignited by catcher
Allison Baker's double down the
left-field line. Her courtesy run-
ner, Sarah Rodriguez, soon
scored on a sacrifice fly by sec-
ond baseman Jianna Hemandez.
Two more runs scored when
the Pace shortstop fielded Ashley
Henriquez's hard grounder and
threw over the first baseman's
head. Later, Henriquez streaked
safely to the plate after Kristen
Babich's liner went off
Emerson's glove.
Pace threatened in the fifth
when it had runners at second
and third with two outs, but
Herniadez ranged tp her right to
knock down a hard grobindef and


get the runner at first.
"They're making the plays
and we're not," Pace coach
Emilio Fernandez said as he
walked to the dugout from his
third-base coaching position.
Yochum, a sophomore, stayed
in command on the mound as her
father encouraged her from
behind the screen.
Betraying little emotion, she
stuck to her routine jiggling
the yellow ball, fingering it light-
ly over and over at her hip before
hiding it in her glove and wind-
ing up to hurl a pitch that either
dropped, rose or broke to the
side.
The Spartans couldn't touch
her in the last two three-up-three-
down innings.
But there was one more big
play to be made by the defense.
With two outs in the seventh,
Vick Miel hit a blooper behind
first base. Out of nowhere came
Hemandez, snaring the ball as
she raced across the foul line.
The game-ending play was
illuminated not by the sun but the
field lights. Dusk had arrived,

the Matecumbe Anglers' angler
of the year for 2006, his first
time to take the top prize in the
12-year history of the fishing
club.
His total score of 3,100
points bested all others, and he
also was the top captain for the
year. And his wife Lois took top
offshore honors with 20 species
caught and 2,400 points. Among
her catches was a 41.5-inch red-
fish, a club record.
The Matecumbe Anglers'
annual competition targets 28
species in Keys waters.
Minimum length or weight for
most of these targeted species
exceeds state minimums for the
catch to count within the compe-
tition.
Four species snook, bone-
fish, redfish and permit count
in two ways: Longest fish, and
most releases. One-hundred
points are awarded to an angler
who captures one of these
species of minimum length or
weight and an additional 200
points are awarded to the angler
who, at the end of the year, has
',the moost releases pr 'the' heaviest
,weight for a particulargspecies. -

and quickly ran
back to the paper
There were several things
at last weekend's Kids
Karnival in the Lower
Keys that made me laugh, and
this face-front camel-photo is
my favorite shot from the scores
of pictures I took throughout the
day.
If you look closely, you can
see the Diet Coke dribbling
down her lips from her previous
thirst-quenching steal from her
trainer. Thus, what you're look-
ing at is one happy camel. And I
can't even look at it without just
cracking up.
There is one photo from the
day that will never make these
pages.
During the circus show, the
animal guy, Charlie, brought out
a 70-pound boa constrictor and
asked for an adult volunteer
from the audience.

Sixteen cast members, most

maxed out their roles in over-

Lighter whites just right


Warm weather
makes us crave
something crisp
Those vicious winter
winds that drop our tem-
peratures into the bone
chilling 60s and 70s are giving
way to typical Keys days in
the 80s time to search out
some white wines for sunset
sipping and under-the-sun
refreshment.
White wines can be catego-
rized by sweetness to dryness,
then by lightness to heaviness.
The sweetness or dryness of
a wine is controlled by the
amount of residual sugar that's
left after fermentation. Grapes
have an inherent sweetness or
dryness but the winemaker can
control the final taste by
adjusting the fermentation
process.
The sweetest white wines
are the Sauternes, made in
Bordeaux as a dessert wine.
Next come the Rieslings,
though some (called Kabinetts)
are made in a lighter, drier
style.
Chardonnays are technically
a bit sweet but their heavier
bodies and richer flavors mask
any tendency toward sugari-
ness. White Burgundy and
Chablis are made from
Chardonnay grapes, as are
most of the better champagnes.
Chenin Blanc wines sit
about midway between sweet
and dry. Chenin Blanc is the
primary grape used to produce
French Vouvray.
Sauvignon Blancs are dry.
These grapes are used to pro-
duce French Sancerre, Pouilly-
Fum6 and Fum6 Blanc in the
U.S.
If you are going to try a
Riesling, look through the bet-
ter wine shops for a good
German Riesling, usually


I' priced in
the $18 to
$25 range.
The pre-
dominant
style,
called
Spatlese,
-- typically
Delivers a
good bal-
ance of
sugar and
acidity,
Bob Serata which
means the
wine is a bit sweet without
being sugary, usually described
as crisp.
Good Rieslings generally
have floral aromas, with hints
of fruit blossoms. You might
notice a citrus or tropical fruit
aroma, especially from U.S.
and New Zealand Rieslings.
Some people sense a mineral
aroma in German Rieslings
because the grapes tend to pick
up flavors from the soil in
which they're grown.
Johannesburg Riesling and
White Riesling are made from
Riesling grapes. Grey Riesling,
usually made from the
Trousseau Gris grape, is some-
thing else entirely. The term
"Auslese" on the label means
the wine is sweeter; "Kabinett"
refers to a lighter, drier style.
Rieslings are versatile
wines that go great with fish
(salmon, speckled trout, snap-
per, tripletail and grouper),
spicy or coconut shrimp, Asian
food (Thai and Chinese) and
pork.
I found J. Lohr 2004
Monterey County White
Riesling, "Bay Mist," at the
supermarket for $13. It's fresh
and fruity with aromas of
melon and spring flowers.
Also on the shelves is
Kendall-Jackson 2005
Riesling, California, $12. Off-
dry and fruity, the K-J is


slightly spicier than the J.
Lohr.
Sauvignon Blancs range
from fine food accompani-
ments to beach fluff worthy of
an ice cube. Generally, the
wines are characterized by aro-
mas and tastes of cut grass,
minerals (a flinty sensation),
tropical fruits and foliage,
depending on the local climate.
Grown in cooler climates,
the Sauvignon Blancs tend
toward herbal ("grassy") char-
acteristics. In warmer climate
the wine leans more toward
passion fruit, tropicals and cit-
rus.
A reviewer once said a
Sauvignon Blanc gave off an
aroma of cat pee, but because I
don't have a cat, I couldn't tell
you.
BV (Beaulieu Vineyard)
2005 Vintner's Selection, $10,
has noticeable fresh citrus aro-
mas and a rich, zesty flavor.
Chateau Ste. Michelle's 2004
Columbia Valley (Washington)
Sauvignon Blanc, .13, is a bit
more herbal in taste and
aroma.
Robert Mondavi "invented"
a new wine called Fum6 Blanc
by aging his Sauvignon Blanc
in oak barrels for a few
months. The 2004 Private
Selection California North
Coast Fume, $11, (not to be
confused with his superior
"Napa Valley" Fum6 at about
$22) is woodier and richer than
the BV or Ste. Michelle, hav-
ing been barrel-fermented and
aged for six months in oak.
Murphy-Goode has an
Alexander Valley (near Napa)
Fume, $13, that has a riper,
fruitier character than the
Mondavi but maintains a bit of
oak flavor and aroma.
Chardonnays can be found
in a huge variety of styles,
from soft and buttery to tart
and "austere" (whatever that
means).
Richer, more mouth-filling,
more buttery Chardonnays
include the Cambria 2005
Katherine's Vineyard, $19; St.
Francis 2005 Sonoma County,
$15; and the Geyser Peak 2004
Alexander Valley, $15.
Slightly leaner Chardonnays
with more apple, apricot,
lemon and honeydew character
are the Clos Du Bois 2004
North Coast, $13, and Jekel
2004 Monterey County, $15.
All of these Chardonnays
pair well with seafood and
lighter pasta dishes. The
Cambria will stand up to roast
chicken and pork.

Seafood fest is this weekend


Chamber secures
additional space
for parking
W ith expected big
crowds, good weather
and fresh seafood,
organizers of the Original
Marathon Seafood Festival are
expecting this year's two-day
event to be "bigger and better
than ever."
This is the first year for the
festival's move to the Marathon
Community Park, instead of at
the west end of Florida Keys
Marathon Airport.
Parking has been a big topic
for festival planners to tackle,
and they have found plenty of
help to make it work, said
Audrey Moir, executive director
of the Greater Marathon
Chamber of Commerce.
Parking is free this year and
free shuttle buses will move fes-
tival goers to the park and back
to their vehicles.
Here are the locations of the


three largest lots with shuttle

Feeda Band on the horizon


Recent hurricane
changes band's
name during storm
By DICK CONKLIN
L'Attitudes Contributor

If you haven't heard of the
Feeda Band, that's because
the former Lady A Blues
Band has morphed (or "meta-
morphisized," as they like to
call it) into a new incarnation
.in 2007.
As bandleader Ric
"Bluesfuze" Arra explains,
"We were playing at a bar in
Islamorada during one of the

recent hurricanes. Someone in
the audience shouted that a
feeder band from the storm was
approaching, and it was so loud
that we could hear it onstage"
Ric's wife Agnes (a.k.a.
Lady A) joked, "OK, that's it
- our new name is the Feeder
Band!"
Fortunately, the storm
changed direction, and the
Arras decided to do the same.
They had been talking about
changing the direction of their
group and the kind of music *
they played, so they decided to
change their name too.
Ric and Agnes, who origi-


nally hail from the New York
borough of Queens, preferred
the pronunciation "Feeda" to
"Feeder." (You got a problem
with that?)
"Thus the Feeda Band was
born," Ric said.
So the former all-blues
ensemble now plays more clas-
sic rock and soul numbers, and
they do it very well. Ric still
plays lead guitar and sings
vocals, Lady A sings vocals
and plays harps, Tom "Iceman"
Logan plays the bass guitar,
Bob "Big Bluzy" Wysocki is
on the keyboard and guitar, and
drummer Juda Skolnick bangs
on the skins.
This audience-pleasing
group knows precisely what to
play to fit the mood of the
evening and get dancers out on
the floor. It specializes in pop-
ular cover songs like "One
Way Out," "Crossroads,"
"Sweet Home Alabama," "Hold
On, I'm Coming," "634-5789
(Soulsville)," "Got My Mojo
Workin," and "The Thrill Is
Gone." Ric's favorite cover
song is Cream's version of
"Crossroads," and Lady A likes
Etta James' "At Last."
Lady A sings a strong,
earthy blues style, influenced
by singers like James and
Aretha Franklin. In Miami she

worked with disco giants K.C.
and The Sunshine Band and
once hosted a Keys radio show
designed to give exposure to
her fellow musicians. She has
also done some vocals and
voiceovers for radio and TV
shows.
Ric has been playing blues
guitar for bands here in the
Keys and previously around
South Florida. His music has
been influenced by Peter
Green, Albert Collins, Albert
King, and B.B. King, but his
favorite is Eric Clapton. He has


even been called "E.C. Junior"
(Eric Clapton Jr.) by friends
and fans, for his ability to not
just mimic but actually impro-
vise a guitar solo in the style of
the legendary axe man. It's no
surprise that the band also
plays music from Clapton '70s
bands Cream and Derek and
the Dominoes.
Ric and Agnes also wrote
and recorded a couple songs of
their own, "Blues Train," fea-
tured on a 1998 CD of the

Artist finds inner 'frit freak'


Shaeffler-Murphy's
shows glass work
today at gallery
Alison Schaeffler-
Murphy, recent recipi-
ent of a Florida Artists
Enhancement Grant, is the
featured artist for March at
the Bougainvillea House
Gallery.
Today, she's displaying a
retrospective of her fused and
stained glass art "on the
porch" at the gallery today.
The Artists Enhancement
Grant is a grant offered
through the State of Florida
that enables artists to expand
their creative talents and
develop new skills so they

can take their art in new
directions.
Schaeffler-Murphy applied
for the Artists Enhancement
Grant with the hopes of
attending a workshop in the
Smoky Mountains of
Tennessee at the Gatlinburg
School of Arts and Crafts.
Renowned glass artist and
teacher Karen Reed was
offering a glass workshop
focusing on glass casting and
frit painting techniques -
objectives Shaeffler-Murphy
foresaw her artwork taking.
The workshop released the
"frit freak" in the Marathon
artist; workshop participants
were taught a much easier
way to make glass-frit, a term
to describe small particles of
broken glass.
In the past, Shaeffler-
Murphy said she would either
purchase pre-made frit or cre-
ate it by smashing her fusible
glass with a hammer. Now
she creates it with heat and
cold water, using the frit to
create imagery in her fused-
glass artwork.
She also learned how to
create glass-fusing molds,
making it possible for her


normally flat glass work to be
formed into "sculptures in the
round." Once the mold is
completed, frit is placed into
the mold and then placed in a
glass fuser's kiln for firing up
to full-melt temperatures.
Although Shaeffler-
Murphy is known in the Keys
for her unique hard-fuse
method of constructing glass
jewelry, she is also recog-
nized for her one of a kind
non-objective stained glass
fabrications and fused-glass
vessels. Now, she's excited to
add these new methods to her
repertoire of warm-glass tech-
niques.
Visitors to the gallery
today will be treated to in-
depth discussions of her
experiences at the Gatlinburg
School of Arts and Crafts,
details about the Artists
Enhancement Grant, explana-
tions of newly acquired glass
working skills, and a collec-
tion of fused and stained
glass designs.
The Bougainvillea House
Gallery is at 12420 Overseas
Highway in Marathon and is
open from 10 a.m. to 6.p.m.

Graham technique and expert-
ise to all levels of students.
"What he's offering is part

essential, actually."
Nardi will lead students

the full range of motion in the

fundamental contraction,
release, spirals and opposi-
tions well known in Graham's
movement vocabulary.
Standing exercises will

to the Graham technique.
Classes will culminate with
excerpts from "Maple Leaf

the importance of studying
with someone who has trained
in this technique."

second CD, "Keys Heat."
They have performed at the
Fort Lauderdale Blues Festival
and at SunFest in West Palm
Beach, where they have
opened for superstars Bonnie
Raitt, Rick James, and George
Thorogood. Following one
SunFest performance, Lady A
says she met a new fan at a
nearby restaurant. "A woman
came up to me and said, 'Hey,
I know you you played with
my son!' It was George
Thorogood's mother!"


These days, the Feeda Band
has been playing a lot around
the Upper Keys, in places like
the Zane Grey Lounge, the

You can catch them at Zane

Eric Carle
Today, Eric Carle, beloved
children' author, is at Cover
to Cover Books in the
Tavernier Towne Shopping
Center, mile marker 91.2,
from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
Carle won the admiration
of millions of children with
his "The Very Hungry
Caterpillar," and legions of
fans continue to collect each
book he generates with his
unique collage art and mes-
sages of "be yourself," taught
by nature's creatures.
The author has illustrated
more than 70 books, most of
which he also wrote, and
more than 72 million copies
of his book have been sold
worldwide.
Besides being beautiful
and entertaining, his books
always offer children the
opportunity to learn.
The free signing will be
part of the community book-


store's third anniversary cele-
bration, which will also fea-

tainment. Although Carle
books will be sold, it is sug-
gested readers bring their

well.

Glenn Murray
For almost everyone, and
certainly for all kids, flatu-
lence is just funny. Murray's
"Walter the Farting Dog"
book is a hoot for all ages,
and is dedicated to "everyone
who's ever felt misjudged or
misunderstood."
Murray will show every-
one that life's a gas at
Borders Express on North
Roosevelt in Key West today
at 11 a.m.
Murray, who has been told
he bears a resemblance to one
of Key West's favorite
authors, Ernest Hemingway,
says, "It's easy to stay hum-
ble when you're the front
man for a farting dog. In fact,
people say to me, 'You're the
farting guy.' I don't think
Brad Pitt has any worries or
anything."
Getting "Walter" into print,
Murray says, took 10 years
and stemmed from his long-


time friendship with co-
author William Kotzwinkle.
Kotzwinkle apparently told
Murray about a now infamous
150-pound bull mastiff named
Walter that drank beer and ate
doughnuts and could clear a
room with its noxious emis-
sions.

Roz Brackenbury
Rosalind Brackenbury,
famed English novelist who
now lives in Key West, con-
tinues to woo readers with a
brand new book that links
Key West to Provincetown.
She'll be launching the
recent publication of
"Windstorm and Flood" with
a signing today from 5 to 7
p.m. at the Heritage House on
Carline St. in Key West.
Wine and snacks will be
served.
"Rosalind Brackenbury has
a searching eye responsive to
the sensuous quick of life and
alert to the appetite for mean-
ing and beauty in the human
spirit ...," writes Resurgence
magazine.
The book is available at
bookstores throughout the

Richard Tazewell and Skipper
Kripitz reunite this week with
a Woodstock, N.Y., music leg-
end Betty MacDonald.
Tazewell is an ex-pat Key
Wester, having lived in the


islands from the '70s through
the '90s and now lives in
Chappell, N.C.
His eclectic keyboard work
fits perfectly with Kripitz's
drumming colors; the two
have played under the name
Kopavi for many years.
Macdonald has been a musical
force in the Woodstock area
since the '70s with her jazzy
singing and scatting along
with her violin prowess.
Catch the trio tonight at the
Rooftop Caf6, 308 Front St.
in Key West, beginning at
7:30 p.m.

This party's


for the birds


And all other
Keys critters
that need help
L'Attitudes Staff

M aya Totman, director of
the Wildlife Rescue
Center on Big Pine Key,
is frequently referred to as "the
bird lady." And her center, until
recently, was called the Exotic
and Wild Bird Rescue Center.
But critters of all kinds come
under her care: manatees, Key
deer, rabbits, alligators, turtles...
No animal in need gets turned
away.
She's got such a reputation
for animal husbandry and a car-
ing spirit in the Lower Keys that
sometimes even people ask her
for her medical opinion regard-
ing their injuries and ailments.
Her rescue and rehab facility
took a harsh blow from
Hurricane Wilma in 2005 and
lost much of her equipment vital
to caring for animals; the num-
ber of patients coming in
increased exponentially as a
result of the storm as well.
Totman said she still hasn't
recovered from the financial
impact caused by the 2004 and
2005 storm seasons.
Now, she's got victims of
avian botulism and red tide
rolling in and her resources are


being stretched to the limit.
Totman's records.show she treat-
ed more than 800 animals in
2005. That number jumped to
1,211 in 2006.
To help her out, the Lower
Keys community has rallied
together to host a fundraising
event on March 17 at
Boondocks Grille and Draft
House on Ramrod Key, near
mile marker 25.
The March 17 event is from
noon to 6 p.m. with performanc-
es by Captain Byrd and the Blue
Coconuts, Michelle Dravis,
Adrienne, and Howard
Livingston and the MM 24 Band.
A silent auction will feature
gift certificates for Little Palm
Island, Butterfly Caf6, M&M
Auto, 915 Restaurant, fine
wines, stays at local resorts, dive
gear and more.
A fine wine and Pirates
Choice Rum booth will be set
up, and Boondocks is donating a
portion of food and drink sales
of the day to the rescue center.
Several raffle items will be
offered throughout the day and a
50/50 raffle will be held.
Totman will be on hand with
educational information through-
out the day.
Donations and sponsorships
are still being collected; call
Michele Adams at 849-1270 for
more information.

An interview with Porsche


By KENNEL
L'Attitudes Contributor
rant Kaiwai is better
known in Key West and
New York City as his
alter ego, Porsche, an extraor-
dinary drag queen known as the
"diva with a thousand voices."
She can be seen at Bourbon
St. Pub and Bobby's Monkey
Bar in Key West, and her
shows is a definite must see.
Rarely has a drag queen
graced Key West stages that
can perform with such diversi-
ty. If one closed their eyes, they
would think the entertainers
that she imitates were right in
front of them.
One minute she is the phe-
nomenal Janis Joplin, singing
with the intensity and raspiness
of the original Janis, and in just
a breath, she can convert to
such legends as Judy Garland,
Dolly Parton, Ethel Merman
and so many more.
Key West is lucky to have
such spectacular talent brought
to the rock by a performer who
has been booked in Austin,
New York City, Miami and
other large cities. However,
Porsche said she's found Key
West to be the true paradise.
Following is an interview
that took place recently on the
deck at Atlantic Shores in Key
West, which will soon be a
only a memory as the site is
planned for "condoization"
soon.
Kenn6: Porsche, where do
you hail from?


Porsche: Originally Austin
but presently NYC-Fire Island.
I must say that the people of
Key West have been very warm
and receptive of me. I must say
the island and its people are
growing on me. This place has
such a strong community. I
would like to call them my
people.
Kenne: How did you get
your start in the drag industry?
Porsche: First, I would like
to educate the masses and
explain the term "drag." When
Shakespeare wrote his plays, of
which all characters (male and
female) were played by boys or
men, the letters "dr ag" would
appear next to the female char-
acter [on the script], its mean-
ing dressed as girl. Did not
mean to get off track. My first
appearance as Porsche began in
New York City, seven years
ago during their Gay Pride
week. The voices of the many
stars began from there as well.
Kenne: How did you arrive'
at the character Porsche?
Porsche: True story Kenne.
Over several frozen margaritas,
my friend and I decided that
my name would be derived
from the make of the next car
that drove by.
Kenne: I guess you are glad
it was not an RV or a Gremlin?
Porsche: Very good point!
[Laughs hysterically.]
Kenn6: You have such a
beautiful voice and such a wide
range. Where did you learn


your craft?
Porsche: I have been
singing since the age of eight
years. Believe it or not, I was
in the same Texas Boys' Choir
with Randy Thompson
[Victoria DuPuis] of La Te Da.
Who knew two queens would
have their start in Texas and
land with wigs in tow and their
paths would cross in Key West?
Patsy Cline was the first
voice I mastered and the rest
spiraled from there. Janis
Joplin seems to be the one that
brings the house down.
Kenn6: I do remember a
standing ovation during your
performance at Headdress Ball
at Atlantic Shores. The crowd
went wild! What brought you
to the "rock"?
Porsche: Joey Schroeder of
Bourbon St. Pub invited me
down to do a few sets three
years ago and now it's become
one of my favorite destinations.
Did I say that I love the people
here?
Kenne: Yes, you did, but it's
nice to hear. Where do you see
yourself in ten years?
Porsche: Singing while
pregnant or dropping from the
balcony of Bourbon St. Pub for
New Year's Eve. They should
make sure the pump is a size
45 XXXE. We don't want the
crowd below getting plummet-
ed by this big girl. Seriously
though, I would like to make
Key West my home, find an
amazing guy to settle down
with and squat out a living with
my musical abilities.

Artist's 'waterworks'


ever expanding


McIntosh creates
new paintings while
traveling overseas
Key West artist Jon
McIntosh, whose work
has taken on a decided-
ly international flavor, is
showing his newest works at
Gingerbread Square Gallery,
1207 Duval, in Key West. The
show opens Monday with a
reception at 5:30 p.m.
McIntosh attended Hobart
College and earned a bache-
lor's in painting in 1971 from
Rhode Island School of
Design. A long time winter
resident of Key West, for the
past 6 years he has lived here
year-round.
This year's show is a leap
.forward for McIntosh: While
he has continued to explore
the viscosity of water, it's
reflections and movements,
this new collection includes
urban landscapes and figura-
tive pieces.
Partly due to his inclusion
in the W.H. Patterson Gallery
in London, he has explored


Jon Mclntosh's'Tender to (France)' is among his new works on
display opening at Gingerbread Square Gallery, 1207 Duval,
in Key West on Monday. A reception will be held from 5:30 to
8:30 p.m.


Scotland, England and France
in search of subject matter.
The richness of these images
augments the sub-tropical
paintings for which McIntosh
has become known.
Composition is still the main-
stay of his paintings, and the
interplay of light, shadows and
reflections their driving force.
The visual tension set up by
the water, boats, buildings and
shadows make up the magic of
each piece. Whether painting
scenes from Key West, or on
the Loire in France, the paint-
ings reflect an intense investi-
gation into how objects fit into
landscapes.
"I do only one painting at a
time," McIntosh said. "That
way, I am totally immersed in
that single image to comple-
tion. The boats must feel like
they're sitting in the water, not
just on top of it, and the build-
ings and landscapes must have
a grounding that feels solid
and natural."


This creative combination
weaves a special story into
each of his unique paintings
by capturing the essence of the
scene. In venturing away from
tropical colors, he has
increased his palette, literally,
and the richness and intensity
of the colors enhances his
vision.
Many times, Key West
artists are held in check, sim-
ply because the public likes
what it sees, and wants more
of the same. By taking a large
step forward, McIntosh has
raised his work to an interna-
tional level, and has greatly
expanded his vision. His sim-
ple explanation is: "With each
piece I do, I ask myself one
question Is it better than
the last painting?"
Call the gallery for more
information at 296-8900, or
view the exhibition online at
www.GingerbreadSquare
Gallery.com. The show hangs
through March 18.
