"Jim Hendrick has lived in
Key West for over 30 years,"
Hendrick attorney Edward Shohat

Monday's crash of a U.S.
Air Force Reserve jet out of
Homestead Air Force Base in
Miami-Dade was the fourth
military plane accident off
the Keys in the past 17
months.
None of the pilots, includ-
ing the one Monday who


ejected from his F-16 fighter
were seriously injured.
According to authorities,
the pilot, whose name and
hometown were not released,
was on a routine training
mission in the morning when
the plane went down about
35 miles east of Marathon.
He was plucked from the
water by a rescue crew based
at Naval Air Station Key

Terrorism fears
could lead to
total monitoring
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

In the name of national securi-
ty, the federal government wants
to look at all boaters along the
"maritime borders" of the United
States.
Recreational boats and small
commercial boats in South Florida
and the Florida Keys could be
affected as the U.S. Coast Guard
works with the federal
Department of Homeland
Security "to improve maritime
security," according to a March 7
statement by Adm. Thad Allen,
commandant of the Coast Guard.
In June, Homeland Security
will lead a "small-vessel security
summit" to consider ways to fur-
ther protect the country's coast-
lines from threats.
Representatives of boating
groups and other marine interests
will be among the 300 or so peo-
ple expected to attend the two-day
session to take place near
Washington, D.C. Exact details
are still being finalized.
During the Miami Boat Show,
a Feb. 16 forum hosted by the
Boating Writers International


group heard U.S. Coast Guard
Rear Adm. Joseph Nimmich,
assistant commandant, outline the
government's concerns.
"Since waterfronts and ports
have marginal security, officials
reason they have become soft tar-
gets and will be the obvious
choice for terrorists to exploit,"
according to the Boating Writers'
report on the session.
"Currently, the Coast Guard
tracks vessels of 300 tons and
above. Its goal is to eventually
have details about everything
moving on the water," the group
reported.
"We've done a great deal in the
wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks
to secure our ports from potential
threats posed by commercial
ships, but we know very little
about the 77 million U.S. boaters
or the 13 million recreational ves-
sels that ply U.S. waters," Allen
said in his statement. "This leaves
us extremely vulnerable to a USS
Cole-style attack within one of
our ports or waterways."
The Coast Guard emphasized
that no specific rules or regula-
tions have been forwarded.
Working with boaters will be part
of the process, officials said.
"We need address the potential
vulnerability" of unprotected
coastlines, said Cmdr. Jeff Carter,
a Coast Guard spokesman. "The
best way to do that is involving
people who would be impacted by


any regulatory changes."
Marathon Boat Yard owner
Bruce Popham, active in regulato-
ry issues affecting marine busi-
nesses, found news of the initia-
tive "really surprising."
"I didn't know anything about
it," Popham said. "It seems some-
what ludicrous to look at small
boaters when smugglers are able
to deposit Cuban refugees on our
shorelines on a daily basis with lit-
tle apparent interference."
Coast Guard officials noted at
the Miami forum that electronic
tracking devices for all vessels
could be considered, but noted
that the technology would be cost-
ly and could prove unpopular with
boaters, according to the BWI.
Increased patrols or new data-
bases on vessel registrations and
operators are other possibilities
under consideration.
Carter said some initial reports
on the Homeland Security initia-
tive "have misconstrued com-
ments or taken them in the wrong
manner.... We want to open a dia-
logue."
"We want to hear ideas from
the people who regularly use our
ports and waterways to determine
how we can better structure new
safety and security regimes that
will have a minimal impact on
those who rely on our waterways
for their livelihood as well as
recreation," Allen said in the
Coast Guard statements.


Conviction has ripple effect


HENDRICK / From 1

custody of the U.S. Marshal's
Service after a Key West jury
found him guilty of conspiracy to
obstruct justice, obstruction of
justice and two counts of witness
tampering. He faces up to five
years imprisonment for conspira-
cy and 10 years imprisonment
each for obstruction and witness
tampering.
Hendrick's conviction came
on the heels of a lengthy FBI
investigation that uncovered a
$29,000 bribe paid to former
County Commissioner Jack
London in 1997. Prosecutors con-
tended the money helped bring
about eventual approval for a
stalled development in Marathon.
Political consultant Randall
Hilliard, who paid the bribe after
collecting $82,500 in fees from
developer Marvin Rappaport, tes-
tified with immunity that
Hendrick and London orchestrat-
ed the bribery scheme.
London was arrested in 2004, a
year before Hendrick, and was
expected to be the government's


key witness against his former
friend. But London died in
November.
Shohat, in his motion for bond
release, notes Hendrick was out
on $200,000 bond after his arrest
in 2005.
"Hendrick was well aware of
the serious penalties to which he
was exposed in the event of con-
viction," Shohat wrote.
"Nonetheless, he scrupulously
observed all the conditions of his
bond."
Meanwhile, on Monday, the
Florida Supreme Court suspended
Hendrick from The Florida Bar
effective April 8. The ruling
allows a grace period for
Hendrick to "close out his practice
and protect the interest of existing
clients."
Hendrick has been a member
of The Florida Bar since 1972 and
served as county attorney from
1995 to 2002 and continued on as
the county Land Authority's attor-
ney until 2003.
Attorney Hugh Morgan, who
was a longtime federal magistrate,
was Hendrick's law partner for 35
years. In a Feb. 27 letter to


Highsmith, Morgan requested
Hendrick be released on bond to
wrap up his work at the practice.
"There is absolutely no doubt
in my mind that Mr. Hendrick
would neither be a flight risk nor a
danger to the community,"
Morgan wrote.
On March 1, Shohat filed a
motion for a new trial; no date has
been set to hear that motion.
According to Shohat, the court
colored the jury's decision in a
number of ways, including allow-
ing "prejudicial hearsay and
improper interpretations of the
taped conversation."
Informant Hilliard wore a wire
during a number of meetings with
Hendrick during the investigation,
and those tapes were part of the
testimony. According to Shohat,
Hilliard's courtroom interpreta-
tion of the tapes undermined
Hendrick's defense.
"For example," Shohat wrote,
"when Hendrick instructs Hilliard
... that he should tell the truth to
federal officials, Hilliard testified
that he interpreted the statement to
mean that 'we all needed to get
our stories straight.'"

An F-16 like this went down off Marathon Monday morning
and the pilot ejected safely, suffering only some scrapes and
bruises.


Investigation begins


F-16 /From 1

helped, marking the pilot's
position and dropping a life
raft, Navy spokesman Jim
Brooks said.
The pilof was taken to
Fishermen's Hospital in
Marathon, where he was treat-
ed for bruises and scrapes and
released.
The aircraft, which can fly
up to 1,300 mph, was one of
17 fighter jets from the 93rd
Fighter Squadron based in
Homestead.
A board of officers has con-
vened to investigate the- acci-
dent.
In March 2006, the Navy
ordered a "stand down" of all
its planes worldwide to inves-
tigate safety issues. Nearly
4,000 aircraft were affected.
At NAS Key West, the half-
day stand down affected five
squadrons and nearly 425
pilots and crew.
Although such a stand-
down is not unheard of, it is
rare and had not taken place
since November 2002.
The three most recent Keys
crashes:
Oct. 14, 2005: An F-18
Hornet from Strike Fighter
Squadron 106 based out of
Naval Air Station Oceana in


Virginia. The pilot ejected
safely before the jet crashed
about 60 miles west of Key
West, near the Dry Tortugas.
Only a 6-inch piece of the air-
craft was recovered after
Hurricane Wilma stirred up
the water. The pilot was not
identified.
Feb. 6, 2006: An F/A-
18D Hornet crashed into the
ocean 4 miles southeast of
NAS Key West. The pilot, part
of Strike Fighter Squadron
125 squadron out of Lemoore,
Calif., was reportedly flying a
routine training mission out of
Boca Chica when he was
forced to eject. The pilot was
not identified.
Feb. 21, 2006: Maj.
Steven Feltenberger crashed
his single-seat Marine Corps
F/A-18C Hornet aircraft
approximately 13 miles south
of the air station.
Feltenberger, who received
minor injuries when he ejected
safely, was part of Marine
Fighter Attack Squadron 122
out of the Marine Corps Air
Station in Beaufort, S.C.
Results of investigations
into those three crashes were
never released.
This report was supple-
mented with material from The
Miami Herald.

DeGraw out, Stevens in


Voters return
Sutton, Vorick
in Key Colony
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

Voters in the Keys' second
smallest city of Key Colony
Beach apparently wanted a bit
of change on the City
Commission by voting in new-
comer Lester "Rusty" Stevens
in a race with three incum-
bents vying for three open
seats.
Ron Sutton, a nine-year res-
ident finishing his first term on
the board, was the top vote-
getter in the at-large election
with. 296 votes (32.71 per-
cent).
Stevens, a 12-year resident,
earned the second seat with
214 votes (23.65 percent) fol-
lowed closely by seven-year


resident and three-term incum-
bent Jeff Vorick, with 213
votes (23.54 percent).
All three will serve two-
year terms on the five-member
commission.
Seneca "Tucker" DeGraw, a
17-year resident and two-term
incumbent, missed re-election
with 182 votes (20.11 percent).
Voter turnout was about
average for Key Colony Beach
- 358 voters out of 776 regis-
tered (46.1 percent),heading to
the polls.
Stevens said he never ran
against any of the candidates
or against the direction taken
by the commission, but he just
wanted to bring his experience
to the board.
"The city is being run fine,
but I'm a longtime resident
here and now I have time to
devote to the city," Stevens
said. "I'm happyI won, and


I'll continue to take the city in
the positive direction it's
going in."
DeGraw said he wasn't
shocked by the outcome and
that this would've been his
final term on the council any-
way if elected.
"I'll continue to stay
involved. I've been running
the [Key Colony] boat parades
since 1994," DeGraw said.
"I'm 72 years old now, and it's
time to retire. But I'll be keep-
ing my eye on them."
Sutton wasn't available for
comment Tuesday, although
Vorick said the voters made a
choice for a "step in the right
direction."
"The voters have spoken,
and this is about the communi-
ty, not any one candidate,"
Vorick said. "I think it's a very
positive move it's not about
personalities. I appreciate
Tucker DeGraw's help, but the
people have spoken."

The sec-
ond open seat
is now held
b y
Councilman
Jeff Pinkus,
i \ who chose
not to seek re-
CINQUE election.
B o t h
Cinque and Vasil said. the
results spoke volumes about
residents' apparent dissatisfac-
tion with the direction of the
council.
"I think the people want
change. The citizens of
Marathon want their leaders to
pay attention to them," said
Cinque, who, like Vasil, pushed
hard for spending reform and a
focus on local businesses.
"My campaign was basical-
ly run on what I felt was the
feelings of this community,"
Vasil said. "The council was
heading in the wrong direc-
tion."
Bartus also said the results
sent a message, and he said he
doesn't regret the way he han-
dled his campaign, including
using a Key West political con-
sultant.
"I ran a very honest and
clean campaign. I ran the way I
live, which is to basically tell it
like it is," Bartus said. "The
people spoke, and that's exact-
ly what makes this fun."
Nelson, who .has run in
every City Council election


since the first
election in
S '4 2000, said
voters defi-
~ nitely wanted
new people
] on the board
and maybe
would've cast
VASIL more votes
for her if she
had run a better campaign.
"I did not run a very good
campaign because I had no
money," Nelson said. "I got
very bummed out thinking I
couldn't straighten things out
because I didn't have the pull."
Asked if there will be a
Nelson ticket in 2008, she said,
"Sure. Why not."
Voters also made their voic-
es heard in a non-binding refer-
endum asking if the city elec-
tion should be moved to coin-
cide with the November elec-
tions.
Of those casting ballots, 977
voters (57.91 percent) said the
date should be moved to
November, while 710 voters
(42.09 percent) said it should
stay in March.
Council members have said
they may use the information to
officially change the election
date.
Cinque and Vasil will take
their council seats at the March
27 council meeting, where the
board will also select the mayor
and vice mayor for the coming
year.

Two file for Key West so far


But many others
express interest
in commission
By ALYSON CREAN
acregn@keynoter.com

Rumors are rampant, and
potential candidates are sending
out feelers.
But only two candidates have
filed so far to run for the Key
West City Commission.
Businessman Barry Gibson
and attorney Richard Klitnick
both filed the paperwork to run
for the District 4 seat now held by
Commissioner Harry Bethel, who
announced in February he would
not seek re-election after 16 years
on the commission.
Gibson owns Shades of Key
West and is a former banker;
Klitnick chairs the city's
Planning Board.
There are four of seven com-
mission seats on the Oct. 2 ballot.
Voters will choose a mayor for
a two-year term as well as com-
missioners for districts 2, 4 and 5,
all of which are four-year terms.


Candidates have until Aug. 17 to
qualify for the ballot. Qualifying
week is Aug. 13 to 17.
All registered voters vote for
mayor. Commissioners are elect-
ed by district.
During a February meeting of
the Key West-based Hometown
PAC, a number of people
expressed interest in running,
including 26-year commission
veteran Jimmy Weekley, who
says he may challenge incumbent
Mayor Morgan McPherson, who
ousted Weekley two years ago.
McPherson says he intends to
run for re-election.
Though he's not ready to com-
mit, Hometown PAC Chairman
Todd German is rumored to be
eyeing the District 2 seat held by
Commissioner Mark Rossi.
Both were among nominees
two years ago to be appointed to
the commission to replace incum-
bent Merili McCoy, who died
two years into her term. The City
Commission selected Rossi to fill
in for five months until the
September 2005 election, when
he defeated George Halloran.

Spring Breakers
generally staying
out of trouble
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.comr

If petty crime is any indicator,
Key West is no longer a mecca
for college kids on Spring Break.
Monroe County Judge Peary
Fowler this week canceled
Spring Break Court for lack of
participation.
The court was established
March 5. It's an annual service to
errant college kids aimed at
allowing them to pay their penal-
ties for minor infractions through
public service and avoid a return
trip to the Keys for a court
appearance.
The most common infractions
that generally come before
Spring Break Court include pos-
session of false identification,
possession of alcohol by a minor,
open container, disorderly con-
duct and public urination.
While no misdemeanors
appeared before Fowler, there
were a number of more severe
crimes during the past week,
according to Key West Police
Department spokeswoman
Christie Phillips. They included


four arrests for sale of cocaine,
one aggravated battery, two
arrests for simple battery, and one
driving under the influence.
"Those were all booked
through the downtown command
center, so most of them are
Spring Breakers," Phillips said.
The Police Department will
continue operating the downtown
command post on the first floor
of Old City Hall, Phillips says,
and Spring Break Court could be
reinstated if necessary.
Though it's too early to tell
how- many, there are Spring
Breakers in Key West, and some
officials suspect a change in law
enforcement might be the reason
the court has. gone unused.
This is the first year in many
that the Florida Division of
Alcoholic Beverages and
Tobacco has refrained from pro-
viding officers during the weeks
that students are out of college.
Historically, these additional offi-
cers have been the ones who
cracked down on lesser infrac-
tions like fake IDs or underage
drinking.
According to Matthew
Helmerich, spokesman for the
Monroe County State Attorney's
Office, local law enforcement is
not tasked with checking ID.


Rossi's term was limited to two
years, fulfilling that vacated by
McCoy.
Four more hopefuls have
expressed interest in replacing
Bethel, including Key West
affordable housing coordinator
Paul Clayton, the city's
Community Housing Committee
Chairman Richard Grusin and
Elmira Leto, the founding direc-
tor of Samuel's House, a shelter
for homeless women. Florida
Keys Community College public
relations director Lydia Estenoz
also says she has an interest in the
seat.

It's not nice to fool with Mother Nature.
But that doesn't help scientists explain the cause or cure for
the algae bloom that has plagued northeast Florida Bay for a
year.
At a recent meeting of the Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary Advisory Council, conflicting data prompted a call
to convene a panel of experts to assess next steps.
There are strong voices blaming the algae bloom on the nutri-
ent loads triggered by the construction work to widen the 18-
Mile Stretch.
Large swaths of mangroves that act as nature's filters were
removed and fill brought in to create a roadbed where before
shallow water lapped at the 100-year-old roadbed.
Other, scientists point to the discharge of agricultural runoff
triggered by back-to-back hurricane seasons in 2004 and 2005
as a causal factor.
When the danger of flooding from hurricanes threatens, the
South Florida Water Management District opens floodgates
and reduces levels in canals that drain vast areas devoted to
agriculture and suburban development along the eastern edge
of the Everglades.
Dumping so much freshwater into the brackish Florida Bay
could upset the delicate balance. Add fertilizer runoff found in
those canals, and it's like a super-charged feeding tube for
algae.
Or at least that's one theory.
During the Sanctuary Advisory Council discussions, they
heard scientists from the Environmental Research Center at
Florida International University, the Miami-Dade Department
of Environmental Resource Management, and the NOAA
Meteorological Laboratory.
According to Cheva Heck, the sanctuary's communications
manager, "They all said essentially the same thing. That the
bloom cannot be entirely attributed to just hurricanes or just the
dredging alone."
Where this goes from here has significant consequences,
especially as it impacts the plan to remove portions of the
causeway built by Henry Flagler's railroad crews 100 years
ago to bridge Lake Surprise.
After all those years of interrupted tidal flows, who knows
what or how plant and animal species have adapted to this
altered environment.
It may seem ironic with so many scientists gathered in one
room and no one really able to pinpoint what caused the algae
bloom, or even more importantly how to. eliminate the
bloom before any more die off further upset the marine ecosys-
tem.
One approach may be to just leave, that 100-year-old cause-
way in place.
Otherwise, dredging designed to undo damage caused by last
century's road builders could deliver yet another massive shock
to the bay's chemistry.
At this point, it's difficult to ignore that old adage about
messing with Mother Nature.
We await the next round of research and analysis being coor-
dinated by the Sanctuary Advisory Council, hoping science
will find some long-term cure to correct the current imbalance.

Now, Duval Street has been degraded so
badly that families should stay away; even most
adults would find the environment caustic at
best. Our recent experience will keep us, and
anyone else we can convince, away from Key
West.
On Duval Street, we experienced vile and
obscene signs and T-shirts outside and in the
windows of sleazy T-shirt shops, almost porno-
graphic displays of affection among gays,


avior and language on
pipes and dangerous
We are not prudes nor
ut the vulgar onslaught
much.


Wow, what a cultural mecca in America. we
are thankful that much of the rest of the Keys
enjoy a certain resistance to American culture
and strive for a unique kind of independence
without being completely disrespectful to all
things normal.
When the moneyed interests finally take over,
every square inch of the Conch Republic, the
aberrant culture will be gone. Thankfully.

Don't forget success of gaining air service for Marathon


EDITOR:
As immediate past chairwoman of the
Lodging Association of the Florida Keys and
Key West, I had the honor of recognizing a stel-
lar group of individuals, businesses and organi-
zations at our annual banquet.
Major award recipients included Joy Smatt of
the Pier House for general manager of the year;
the Curry Mansion for property of the year;
George Born, winner of the Wright Langley
Award for preserving our historic resources; Fair
Insurance Rates for Monroe, winner of the
Margo Golan Award for community service (I
abstained from that vote); and Gerry Tinlin of
the Oasis and Coral Tree Inns for his lifetime
achievement in our industry.
There was one accomplishment we somehow
overlooked, however: the effort to bring com-
mercial air service to Florida Keys Airport in
Marathon.
With direct flights from major hubs to the


center of our island chain, we expect that
improvements in traffic and accessibility for res-
idents and visitors alike will result. Kudos go to
the Marathon Airport Initiative Committee, the
Airport Task Force, county Airports Director
Peter Horton, U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen,
the Monroe County Commission and the private
businesses that contributed to this effort.
Members of the Lodging Association
throughout the Keys, from small owner-man-
aged properties to multi-property corporations,
pledged and paid the lion's share of private
funding to guarantee financial success to com-
mercial airlines offering flights into Marathon.
We are thrilled that the actual passenger
usage is already meeting and exceeding expecta-
tions and we offer gratitude to all of our mem-
bers who invested their hard-earned dollars to
help make it happen.

Our government's spending is out of control


EDITOR:
Local government spends beyond its means
expecting the the state and feds to make up the
difference. State government promises lower
taxes and more spending, expecting the feds to
make up the difference.
George W. Caesar and his motley crew conned

That little old lady with bags under her eyes

Delta will boost Marathon
EDITOR:
A few weeks ago in the Keynoter, a Delta
Airlines flight via Chicago and Miami was said
to be approximately $1,250. The Internet price
is $442 quite a difference.
The price Chicago to Miami via most other
airlines is $350 to $450. To Key West, add
another $100. Rental car Miami to Marathon,
approximately $100 plus time. Delta has one
flight connection. Others, possible one to three
flight connections. A major airline, as Delta, will
reveal Marathon as a significant impression on
the map.
Major airlines will promote tourism and com-
merce to our community, not a population and
expansion explosion.

Wesley House benefit a success


EDITOR:
As Valentine's Day has come
and gone, we would like to thank
the entire community for their help
and support at the 24th annual
Wesley House Valentine's event at
the Curry Mansion Feb. 14.
Most importantly, we want to
acknowledge our sponsors once
again. With their help, all expenses
of the event were covered, meaning
that all the money raised during the
event will directly benefit our
many programs helping the chil-
dren and families of Monroe
County....
To all the volunteers who


worked endlessly during the day
and evening, we could never have
begun to set up, tear down, work
doors and serve at the cocktail
party. This is labor-intensive work.
And again, to the entire commu-
nity, thanks for helping Wesley
House continue in its mission of
promoting and enhancing the safe-
ty, well-being and development of
children by educating, supporting
and meeting the needs of families.

Foundation gets the real applause


EDITOR:
The Center for Independent
Living of the Keys wants to thank
Vera Nigh for her kind words about
our center. However, I want to make
a correction in what she said, that our
center was the foundation that pro-
vided the funds. We presented her
request to Coldwell Banker Schmitt
Charitable Foundation and it provid-
ed the funds, as they understood that
the need was great.
Often, when appropriate, we con-
nect one of our consumers with
Coldwell Banker Schmitt Charitable
Foundation. They consider the appli-
cation and if it falls within their
guidelines, they have provided many
people the help they need to continue
living their lives independently.
When small emergencies such as
Vera Nigh's sister encountered pres-


ent themselves to persons who are
not disabled, they are able to find
solutions and go on with their lives.
When the same incident presents
itself to a person on a limited income
and also a person who is unable to
put an extra effort out to recoup, it
could prove the difference between
living independently and becoming
dependent upon others.
The Coldwell Banker Schmitt
Charitable Foundation has done
remarkable work in providing assis-
tance to members of our community
in their times of need. The Center for
Independent Living of the Keys
thanks it for this service and for
being one of our resources toward
helping people with disabilities in
Monroe County.

Time to repair the bike path


EDITOR:
This is about the bike path lead-
ing up to the world-famous Middle
Keys tourist attraction, the Seven
Mile Bridge.
Isn't it time for its repair?
Thousands must stop to visit yearly,
some on bicycles as we did 15 years
ago, and still do today. Its unrepaired
and deteriorating state going on two
years now surely doesn't paint a
positive and picturesque scene of our
city. And the little park below the


bridge needs attention, too.
Shouldn't there be signs pertain-
ing to its use for tents and overnight
camping, etc.? Also, since it's locat-
ed close to the swirling currents
below the bridge, perhaps a life-pre-
server fixture might be a good idea
just in case some of those dropping
the beer cans and bottles on the
ground lose their balance and can't
swim.

Artists support the library


EDITOR:
The Friends of the Key Largo
Library, whose members support the
library through financial donations
and volunteerism and whose vol-
unteers run the shop, Friendly
Things, which is located in the
library wishes to publicly thank
the members of the Purple Isles Art
Guild who donated their art note
cards for sale in the store.
The addition of these cards to the
inventory of items available in
Friendly Things gives us the oppor-
tunity to promote our local art com-
munity, while the artists help the


Friends group raise the money that
pays for all of the extras available in
the library as a result of the dona-
tions.
Ultimately, it is the Upper Keys
community at-large that benefits. So,
thanks to Annmarie Anderson, Jackie
Campa, Bonnie Fjelde, Linda
Guerro, Dan Lawler, Jody Roberts,
Caroline Smith, Geri Smith and
Morna Strengholt, whose combined
donations totaled some seventy
cards, for their generosity.

Keys have new type of pirates


EDITOR:
When I read the Keynoter article "'06
teacher of the year..." in the March 3 edi-
tion, I must admit that parts of it bothered
me.
Portions of the classroom "theme" seem
to glorify a group of individuals, some of
whom raped, pillaged and plundered for a
living and whose highest level of articula-
tion was the word "aarrgh" [sic].


However, in retrospect, perhaps the
teacher is doing a fine job preparing her stu-
dents for their upcoming encounter with the
21st Century pirates (i.e., certain members
of the city and county commissions and the
never-ending group of speculators and
developers) who are doing the same thing to
the Keys.

Don't change the rules for a select few


EDITOR:
As other questionable agreements,
arrangements, and behavior are under
scrutiny in Monroe County, I encourage the
County Commission to please review
Florida statutes and Monroe County policy
and procedures regarding the ongoing
behavior of Planning Commission
Chairman Jim Cameron.
Mr. Cameron continually puts his
Planning Commission impartiality and
ethics in jeopardy, by publicly and privately
pushing agendas that will later come to him
for a vote. This seems a direct conflict to his
ethical duty as a Planning Commission
member, under which Florida statutes indi-
cates a planning commission member must
not unduly influence matters that may later
come to him for a vote.
Mr. Cameron also often flies in the face
of county procedure and policy, recently
demonstrated by his initial suggestion to
reopen the Big Pine Key master plan, with-
out a vote from his fellow planning com-
missioners or a directive from staff or the
County Commission.
Why the end run, you might ask? If you
follow Mr. Cameron's public comments, it
appears he would like this policy change so
particular property owners can sell their
properties at inflated values to national cor-
porations.
It appears that Mr. Cameron's activities


are not about good public policy but about
making special rules and changing the plan
for a few. Why? Because the current pro-
posed development cannot be built under
the existing rules and master plan.
I am not against redevelopment on Big
Pine Key. Redevelopment in existing devel-
oped areas that concurs with the master plan
and other current development guidelines
that were derived through a very public
process is fine with me. Changing public
policy to benefit a few is not.
We don't owe it to current or future
property owners to rezone or revisit the
master plan just so they can make more
money selling their property to national cor-
porations.
And it is not as simple as property rights
vs. tree huggers, as some would like to
think. It is about what is currently allowable
in the master plan and current guidelines
and the very long and public process that
resulted in this document.
Often in public policy it is all about
precedent. If you change the master plan for
a few today, does it mean tomorrow we
change some other guideline or the master
plan again, because a different property
owner's plans are not allowable?
If you open the door, how do you shut it?

Board splits on housing


By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com


A discussion, during Mon-
day's Marathon City Council
meeting had a familiar tone,
with Councilman Jeff Pinkus
arguing on affordable-housing:.
It was for an agreement with
Peebles Corp., which planned
to alter redevelopment plans for
the Key Colony Beach Hotel
near mile marker 54.
This time, Pinkus argued
against more affordable hous-
ing a departure for the one-
time mayor who has described
himself as the council's
"biggest proponent of work-
force housing."
Pinkus instead argued for
council consistency at
Monday's meeting, which was
to be his last after not seeking a
third two-year term in
Tuesday's election.
The council increased


Peebles' affordable require-
ment in a 3-2 .vote, with
Councilwoman Marilyn
Tempest dissenting along with
Pinkus.
Although Pinkus was on the
losing side, he said conceding
the point was not an option.
"I don't believe in being a
lame duck," Pinkus said. "I'm
not going to sit back up there
and keep my mouth shut when I
see an injustice happening."
Pinkus and Tempest said the
council should honor a previ-
ous development agreement
with former Key Colony Bay
Hotel owner Tracy Holder, who
later sold the hotel and the
development agreement to
Peebles before he passed away.
The council approved the
redevelopment of 80 hotel units
into 72 two-bedroom upscale
condo-hotel units and required


the developer pay $800,000 to
the city for affordable housing
construction or preservation
(10 percent of the total units at
$100,000 per unit).
However, Mayor Chris Bull,
Vice Mayor Marjie Mearns and
Councilman Pete Worthington
said the requirement should be
increased to match the coun-
cil's current policy of 20 per-
cent of the units at $200,000 -
meaning Peebles pay $3 mil-
lion.
However, Pinkus reminded.
the council of previous
instances where development
agreements with the old afford-
able requirement have come
back to the council and have
not been imposed with the new
requirement.
The Keynoter reported that
treatment for Tranquility Bay in
December 2005, Banana Bay in
February 2006, and two
changes to the Key Colony Bay
Hotel agreement in May and
June of 2006.
The council eventually
decided to require Peebles pay
for 10 percent of the units
(eight units) at $200,000 each,
for a total of $1.6 million.
"Please remember this on
future development agree-
ments, that you are consistent
on your policy," Pinkus told the
council. "I won't be here to
remind you."

Puto's buying

authority questioned


Finance chief
says he'll audit
past agreements
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
met in regular session Monday
and took the following actions:
Directed staff to bring back
a new purchasing policy for city
contracts, requiring the council
now vote on any renewal totaling
$25,000 or more.
Previously, the city manager
had the authority to renew or
extend a contract as long as the
requested price increase was not
greater than $25,000.
Councilman Pete Worthington
initiated the discussion and said
he was shocked to find out that
current City Manager Mike Puto
had renewed several contracts
with Gonzalez Landscaping that
made up nearly $500,000 in city
spending, although the contracts
weren't increased by more than
$25,000 at a time.
City Attorney Jimmy Morales
and Finance Director Peter
Rosasco said they both reviewed
each contract renewal and that
Puto had operated correctly
under the city's existing policy.
Rosasco told the Keynoter he
is now going back and auditing
the entire Gonzalez Landscaping
contract history.
Directed staff to prepare a
request for proposals to develop
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.
Approved a one-year exten-
sion 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 a staff report,
applicant Jim Chaplin requested
more time to submit a building
permit 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.
Approved an ordinance
"establishing a uniform speed
zone throughout the city of
Marathon," which staff said was
required by the state Department
of Transportation and effectively
allows the city to change speed
limits on city streets when appro-
priate.
Approved deferment of
acceptance and processing of
building permit allocation appli-
cations beginning today and end-
ing May 7.
The council recently approved
new city land development regu-
lations, which include a new per-
mit allocation system to replace
the city's current rate-of-growth
ordinance.
Planning staff said the defer-
ment would give enough time to
transition to the new permitting
system. Councilman Jeff Pinkus
voted no, saying he was against
any building moratorium.
Approved a resolution
rescinding a city policy requiring
that private individuals living in
or using waters above submerged
lands to enter into a submerged-
land lease with the city.
According to Rosasco, the city
previously collected a lease pay-
ment from one lessee totaling
$1,403.89, which will be refund-
ed from the marina enterprise
fund. Councilwoman Marilyn
Tempest recused herself, saying
the resolution could affect her.
Continued an amendment
to a major conditional use for the
redevelopment of the Grassy Key
Marina. Council claimed two
amendments previously request-
ed were missing form the docu-
ments.

Manager: A win-win with Stretch muck


It likely will
be used to fill
refuge's pit
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Ever-growing piles of muck
from widening U.S. 1' north of
Key Largo could be used to fill a
gaping hole in the Crocodile
Lake National Wildlife Refuge.
Approvals are pending to use
at least some of the 18,000 tons of
excavated muck to fill in a 2.2-
acre borrow pit, dug 12 to 15 feet
deep, inside the boundaries of the
North Key Largo refuge.
"I feel very good about possi-
bly being able to solve our prob-
lem and the [Department of
Transportation] problem," refuge
manager Steve Klett said.
"The refuge has always want-
ed to restore this site, but because
of the amount of material needed,
we never thought the funding
would available."
Original plans routed the
muck to fill in the even larger and


deeper boat basin at the former
Carysfort Yacht Club, now part of
a state preserve.
However, that site's proximity
to open water -- and the uncer-
tain effect that the muck may
have on feeding harmful algae
blooms in nearshore waters -
caused the plan to be scratched.
Klett said federal officials are
highly confident the Keystone Pit
site is far enough from the shore-
line that no contaminants could
reach the shore. Chances of that
happening are "minimal," he said.
The borrow pit usually has
about 2 feet of collected rainwa-
ter and runoff at its bottom, Klett
said. That indicates the site is not
affected by tidal changes.
As an added precaution, con-
tractors would be required to line
the pit with 3 feet of clean mate-
rial before the muck would be
dumped, then cap the site with
another three feet of "clean lime-
stone fill."
Levels of contaminants found
in the muck were studied by fed-
eral wildlife biologists who con-
cluded they would not pose a


threat to wildlife food chains.
"It shouldn't have any impact
on wildlife even if they were in
constant contact with it," Klett
said of the findings.. "And we're
taking the extra precaution of
requiring the three feet of clean
fill."
The pit, dug to remove fos-
silized coral that was used to cre-
ate fireplaces and other architec-
tural features, was dug three to
four decades ago in a high-quali-
ty hammock area, Klett said.
Crocodile Lake was created in
1987.
Local agencies and conserva-
tion groups have been briefed on
the plan, the manager said. "We
want to make sure everyone
knows what's going on."
Filling the pit would create
additional habitat "for several
federally threatened and endan-
gered species, including the Key
Largo woodrat, Key Largo cotton
mouse, Schaus swallowtail but-
terfly and the Stock Island tree
snail," according to a federal
report.
Since the plan to use the fill at
Carysfort was halted, the piles
have been growing along the 18-


Mile Stretch. Contractors have
been forced to move them from
one spot to another as the con-
struction proceeds.
Approvals for the Crocodile
Lake Refuge plan could be
received within weeks, Klett said.

project can be found on the Web

Would-be rescuers
punched by rescue

A man yelling for help from
the water offshore off an Upper
Keys boat ramp was arrested
Sunday after he reportedly
punched his rescuer, then took a
swing at two paramedics.
Carlos Leon-Paredes, 22,
was charged with felony battery
for punching the paramedic
Novak Milan, battery for punch-
ing good Samaritan Ernesto
DeMolina and assault for swing-
ing at paramedic Danny Power.
According to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office,
DeMolina, of Miami, was fish-
ing in a canal at mile marker


94.8 at 8 p.ni. when he saw a
van sinking in the water and a
man in the water near it, yelling
that he couldn't swim and need-
ed help.
DeMolina jumped in to help
and began towing the man to
shore and told him to relax.
Instead of relaxing, the man,
later identified as Leon-Paredes,
punched DeMolina in the face
twice, deputies say. DeMolina
managed to get to shore despite
Leon-Parades' combativeness,
pulling him up onto a boat ramp.
Power and Milan arrived and
saw Leon-Paredes lying face
down on the ramp and attempted
to check his vital signs. He then
hit Milan in the face and swung
at Power, deputies said.

In the meantime, a tempo-
rary moratorium keeps marina
owners from redeveloping their
properties into uses other than
marine-related.
The genesis of the whole
idea came out of a concern two
years ago for the fast-disap-
pearing working waterfront
where shrimp and lobster fish-
ermen could dock their vessels,
repair them and sell their catch.
"This is not a fish camp any-
more," Windle, who is a
Realtor, said. "It's the most
expensive place to buy real
estate in Florida. Wealthier and
wealthier people keep coming
here, and theirs are the needs
we need to serve."
In the meantime, Popham
says, true working waterfront is
dropping off the map, and bod-
ies like the Planning
Commission have no real


The Monroe County
Planning. Commission last
week unanimously approved
redevelopment for the former
Peninsular Marina at the south
end of Stock Island, but one
commissioner says she's kick-
ing herself.
"I'm disappointed in
myself," Sherry Popham said
Tuesday. "We're following the
letter of the [law on a moratori-
um on marina redevelopment],
but we're missing the spirit of
it."
Yacht Clubs of America
received the commission's
approval for Key West
Harbour, a development of
high-end dockominiums that
will provide space for 475 dry-
storage boat racks.
"Peninsular has a long-
standing history as a working
waterfront," Popham said. "Are
we preserving waterfront
access? Yes, to a select rich
few, but working waterfront?
Not in my mind."
Fellow Planning Commis-
sioner Donna Windle dis-
agrees.
"It is working waterfront,
though it will be private," she
said. "They've taken a piece of
property and are redeveloping
it exclusively for the boating
community."
County staff is in the
process of finalizing a marine
management plan that would
inventory parcels that should
be preserved.

Florida Department of
Health Deputy Secretary
Bonita Sorensen is on her way
to the Keys to speak with
Monroe County Mayor Mario
Di Gennaro and the rest of the
County Commission about
replacing Dr. Susanna May,
whose three-year tenure as
director of the Monroe County
Health Department ends
Thursday.
After talks with the com-
mission, Health Department
staff and getting community
input, "they'll make a decision
to make sure the county
Health Department is stable
and the citizens of Monroe
County continue to receive
quality care," said Wendy
Riemann, spokeswoman for
the state DOH. "Once she
goes down there, I think
they'll be able-to make a deci-
sion fairly quickly on their
next steps."
Reimann could not yet say
which will happen immediate-
ly after the meeting, which
could happen at the County
Commission meeting March
21 or some other meeting:
whether an interim director
will be appointed or the job
will be advertised.
When May announced her
resignation March 2, Reimann


said- the next director could
come from within the depart-
ment or the private sector. The
state and county work togeth-
er to staff the position, she
said.
When she decided to
resign, May told the Keynoter
the final straw was because
former Health Department
employees, who she had fired,
spoke out against her and the
department in a Key West
weekly tabloid and her request
for support from the Florida
Department of Health was
denied.
The administration told her
"don't say anything, we would
just like you to resign," May
said. "...I've given my blood,
sweat and tears to this Health
Department. I feel like I've
given everything I can and it's
time to move on."
May also said what she's
perceived as a lack of finan-
cial support or to even "be
able to offer the Health
Department employees a liv-
ing wage" contributed to her
decision.
She's taking a position at a
Miami clinic. May owns a
house on Plantation Key and
plans to spending weekends
there and continue volunteer
work in the Keys after she
moves to Miami.


Interim health chief

is a possibility


guidelines to help them pre-
serve what's left.
According to a county staff
report, the development will
include three boat barns that
will provide dry storage for 475
vessels. These spaces, along
with some 75 wet slips, will be.
available for sale, thus the
dockominiums moniker. Plans
also call for a ship's store, a
private clubhouse, three-mar-
ket rate attached houses and
three affordable housing units.
The concept of boat slips
being sold for ownership is a
new one, according to Yacht
Clubs of America's Web site.
The company "acquires and
develops marina properties into
private five-star service boat
storage facilities offering the
ultimate marine experience to
its member/owners while pro-
viding them with the opportu-
nity to realize growth of their
real property investment."

After the incident, the local
ACLA chapter issued a letter
to all of the county commis-
sioners calling Di Gennaro's
behavior inappropriate and
illegal and asking for a formal
apology.
Di Gennaro refused to
apologize.
Thacker filed a formal
complaint with the Florida
ACLU, which hasn't taken
action.
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton, however, has issued a
number of letters supporting
Di Gennaro's right to remove
people he feels are disrupting
a meeting. Sheriff Rick Roth
says he has instructed his
deputies to abide by the
mayor's decisions.
The Keys chapter of the
ACLU decided to monitor Di

Ferry service growing


Miami and Keys
tourists boarding
Key West Express
By STEVE SANOSKI
Keys Sunday reporter
ssanoski@keynoter.com

Key West Express has big
plans for its recently launched
ferry service between the
Southernmost City and Miami,
operated from the Key West
Bight Ferry Terminal, 100
Grinell.
"We see a huge growth market
here," said Dave Kennedy, sales


manager for Key West Express
east coast operations. "Miami is a
major market we've yet to tap,
and the trip is still in that four
hour time span we think makes
sense for people."
The 155-foot Big Cat
Catamaran sails roundtrip
between Miami and Key West
Wednesday through Sunday and
features two enclosed cabins, sun
deck, satellite TV, a full galley
and bar.
Key West Express has been
providing ferry service to the
Southernmost City since 1995,
and also offers daily roundtrip

Guild recruits gay spring breakers


Key West is
rated No, 1
by Gay.com
McClatchy Tribune


First came the Conch
Republic. Then Margaritaville.
Now, some in Key West hope to
claim another title for the
island's tourism repertoire: Gay
Spring Break Capital of the
World.
* Faced with an aging corps of


gay vacationers, some island
business leaders want to reach
out to the next generation of that
increasingly coveted demo-
graphic. This month, Key West's
Gay Spring Break 2007 got into
full swing with same-sex-friend-
ly pool parties, barbecues and
best-body contests that defy the
island's long-standing policy
against marketing to the college
crowd.
"It's so much nicer to be with


who understand," said Jill
McDonald, owner of the Aqua
gay and lesbian bar on Duval
Street, where police will cordon
off streets Friday for a Gay
Spring Break block party featur-
ing DJ Tracy Young. "College is
hard enough."
The first two weeks in March
mark the height of spring break
season, a 14-day stretch when
nearly 3 million college students
will be on vacation.
The new attention comes as

Gay coeds come to Keys


SPRING BREAK / From 14

gay Web sites and publications
offer their takes on a collegiate
rite of passage famous for boozy
antics and sexual shenanigans.
"We've covered it the last
three years for fun," said Ed
Salvato, travel editor of
www.gay.com, which this year
ranked Key West the country's
top destination for gay spring
break. "Let's take something that
screams heterosexual and try to
own it."
The Key West campaign will
test whether a tourist destination
can learn to like gay spring
breakers more than their straight
counterparts.
Fort Lauderdale chased off
spring breakers in the 1980s with
stricter drinking rules and boasts
of replacing them, in part, with
affluent gay travelers. Though a
popular spring break destination,
Miami-Dade does not pursue
that market.
And the Monroe County
Tourist Development Council
charged with promoting Key
West does not support the spring-
break campaign launched by the
local Business Guild, saying it
prefers older vacationers who
spend more money regardless
of sexual orientation.
"The spring breaker is, look-
ing for a room with a bathroom
and clean sheets. Then they
spend their money on fast food
and beer," said Harold Wheeler,
TDC marketing director. "Some-
body can say [gay spring break]
is different. I don't know if it is."
The Key West Business
Guild, a gay-oriented organiza-
tion, mailed college campuses
about 5,000 glossy cards featur-
ing a shirtless young man facing
away from the camera. "Bring
Your Sexy Back," reads the invi-
tation to visit Key West for the
"World's Premier Gay Spring
Break Event & Destination."
A guild Web site, www
.gayspringbreak.org, adver-
tises events nearly every day
through March, from a "Beef on
the Reef" male-dancer show at
the Bourbon Street gay bar to a
'Where the Girls Are' happy
hour at the Pearl's Patio lesbian
bar.
Key West first tried to estab-
lish itself as a magnet for gay
spring breakers 10 years ago, but
the effort never gained traction,
tourism experts say. In recent
years, though, some business
leaders on the island saw an
opportunity.
"We decided, 'OK, we're
rated as the No. 1 gay spring
break travel destination. We real-
ly do have a lot to offer,'" said


Ian Whitney, the Business
Guild's chairman of new events.
Jonathan Vatner, 27, plans to
be there later in March, blogging
for www.gay.com. The New
York writer went to Daytona
Beach in college with some
straight friends. He called it "ter-
rible."
"We stayed up all night in
these dungeonous bars drinking
free beer and making out with
girls," he recalled. "For many
reasons, it was not very fun for
me."
The Key West trip, he said,
"sounded like a really great
opportunity to reclaim my spring
break experience, even though
I'm five years out of college."

tributed to this report.

said several public transportation

Service began last month, and
has thus far been used by more
than 1,300 passengers, accord-
ing to Key West Port Director
Raymond Archer.
"It hasn't sold out yet, but it's
growing everyday," Archer said.
"In just four trips so far in March
we've had more than half the
number of passengers we had all
last month."
City marina manager Mark
Tait is in the terminal when the
Key West-Miami ferry comes in
each morning. He's noticed most
passengers using the service are
Miami-area residents and
tourists.
"Right now there's more
Miami than Key West passen-
gers," Tait said. "Everyday we
get a lot of inquiries from locals
who want to get information


about the Miami run. Key West
Express has done most of it's
advertising in Miami thus far,
and the locals are just starting to
learn about it."
Those coming into town from
Miami are not all merely making
it a sightseeing daytrip.
"A lot of people are bringing
luggage, and staying for more
than just the afternoon," said
Archer.
Key West Express' Key West-
Miami ferry service is the first of
its kind. In 2003 and 2004, Fast
Cats attempted to provide a ferry
service to and from Miami, but
ran into numerous problems,
including not being able to get
U.S. Coast Guard certification
and running aground off Miami
during a trial run.

Cemetery moves
are part of a
massive update

By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Bits of green tape smattered
over headstones, fences and mon-
uments at the historic Key West
Cemetery have some residents
worried.
Janet Hartwell recently moved
from Eaton Street to an Angela
Street home facing the cemetery.
While she was settling in, work-
ers with sledgehammers opened
two vaults and removed their con-
tents. A few weeks later she
watched a small service that
ended in another exhumation.
"We finally thought we'd
found a view they couldn't take
away from us," she said. "But
then they started taking them
away."
But no one is being moved
out; they're just being moved as a
century-old mess of inadequate
paperwork is meticulously
researched, cross-checked and
entered into a new database, Key
West City Manager Julio Avael
says.
"The green tape is really for
staff," cemetery Manager Russell
.Brittain said. "It identifies those
types of monuments and other
structures we want repaired so as
potential contractors that come
and tour can identify them and put
a price tag on each type."
The city was awarded a
$300,000 grant, according to
Avael, that will allow some of the
-most decrepit sites to be repaired.
The face-lift and records
update are all happening under
the watch, of Brittain, a retired
firefighter who came on three
years ago, replacing 20-year sex-
ton Billy Roberts.
"When I came on board,"
Brittain said, "the primary task
was to transfer paper records into
a computer database. It was sup-
posed to be a six-month job, but it
quickly became apparent that our
records were not complete."
Brittain said the work began
with burial cards. It was a simple
concept: Each burial since around
1850 should be accompanied by a
card. Once it was clear that not all
burials were accounted for in the
cards, Brittain and his part-time
archivist Jane Newhagen began
looking at the headstones.
"Jane found the information
did not match with the head-
stones," Brittain said. "She con-
vinced me to go to the headstones
first."
Brittain says that in research-
ing just the first 100 plots sold,
Newhagen found 2,000 names on


PI


The Key West Cemetery has been in use for more than 150 years.




Bodies in Motion


the headstones. Five hundred of
those names were not in the paper
records.
Anyone who's strolled through
the cemetery knows it's larger
than it appears from the outside.
Brittain wants to eventually be
able to print out easy directions
for families to find their ancestors
in the 19 acres of monuments and
mausoleums
"The cemetery was originally
designed for 15,000 people,"
Brittain said. "A 1972 document
reports between 80,000 and
100,000. I'm not sure I believe
that, but off the top of my head I
would estimate around 60,000.
And we're still burying at the rate
of 100 per year.
"I have to assume that when
they built for 15,000, it was
intended for one burial per
space,"- he continued. "But we go
two to three stories up. We're per-
mitted to bury two below and
three above."
Though visitors often equate
the Key West Cemetery's raised
burials with that of New Orleans,
where the water table makes it
necessary, such is not the case. In
fact, many plots are in the ground.
"We have burial practices that
may be unusual in other places,"
Brittain said. "You can bury peo-
ple in the same vault. You can add
ashes. It's a result of Key West
[historically] being the largest
seaport between New Orleans and
Norfolk. We had a lot of com-
merce. Our burial practices are a
conglomeration, including Carib-
bean island cultures which favor
above-ground burials."


Manager Russell Brittain took over running the Key West
Cemetery three years ago, inheriting more than a century's
worth of bookkeeping.

Coral Shores on 4-game roll


Baseball Canes
getting prime
for districts
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Coral Shores' baseball
Hurricanes continued to march
through March this week,
extending the team's win streak
to four games.
Before Tuesday's key District
16-3A home game against
Archbishop Carroll (score not


available at press time), the
Canes were unbeaten in the first
two weeks of March.
Coral Shores (7-3) pulled out
a 3-2 win over Ransom
Everglades March 6, then topped
Archbishop Curley, 5-2, Friday.
"We're playing pretty well,"
Cane coach Jeff Meyers said.
"We could do a better job on
base-running and tighten up
some parts of the defense, but
overall, we're happy."
The .game against Carroll was
significant because it will affect
the regular-season district stand-


ings, where the main goal is to
earn a second-place finish
behind powerhouse Gulliver
Prep. That puts 16-3A's runner-
up in a good spot to work
through the district tournament
to make the state regional play-
offs.
Coral Shores lost an 8-7 deci-
sion to Carroll's Bulldogs three
weeks ago.
"We're hitting well, and
we've got enough good pitch-
ing," Meyers said.
Mike Rentz, a junior new-
comer, threw a two-hitter Friday

Conch

boys take

meet

Girls are 3rd
showing strong
performances
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

The longtime cross-coun-
try pals had turned sprinters
and were thundering around
the orange track as the fans at
Key West High's meet on
Saturday cheered them on.
Leaving everyone else in
the distance, Mason Marshall
and Conch teammate Mike
Eder were one-two coming
down the stretch in the 800-
meter dash and Eder couldn't
quite catch up. .
Drained by.their efforts -
Marshall's time was 2:02,
Eder's was 2:04 the pair
could-barely-get off the track.
Eder helped Marshall over to
the pole-vault pit, onto which
both collapsed in painful
exhaustion.
"Aw, my God," Marshall
said as he clutched an ice bag
to his hamstring. "That's as
hard as I've ever run."
Marshall, who never out-
ran Eder on the cross-country
team, has been training in
recent weeks as a sprinter,
coach Dave Perkins said, but
Eder hasn't.
"We knew it would be
close and that it would come
down to the last 100 yards,"
Eder said. "He took it out
hard and held up better than I
did.".
Marshall's victory helped
the Key West boys defeat
South Dade, 73-64. The
Conch girls' team finished
just behind South Dade,
69.5-65.5, and ahead of third-
place Homestead, which had
39 points.
Placing first for the Conch
girls were Lauren Arias,
whose 5-foot effort won the
high jump; Hali Lombardi,
who won the long jump (14
feet 1 inch) and the pole vault
-(10 feet); and Caitlin Holibar,
who won both the shot put
(27-01) and the discus throw
(99-09).

For the boys, Marcus Bolden
won the long jump (20-02.75)
and also finished first in the 200-

Potalivo finished first in the shot
put (38-05) and the discus (130-

triple jump (38-01).
Other Key West winners
included Bryan Silva in the 400-
meter dash (52:80) and Richard
Neumann in the 300 hurdles
(41:85).
And senior Mike Labrada had
a big day in the pole vault. He
went over the bar at 12 feet, 6
inches for a personal best, then
immediately got another when he
cleared 13 feet. He tried to get
over 13-6 but kicked the bar over
the landing pit.

when you know you can get over
the next level any day."
Labrada, who will attend the
U.S. Naval Academy in
Annapolis, Md., hopes to clear 14


feet before the season's over and
qualify for the state tournament.
"I'm faster and stronger this
year," he said, "and I'm getting a
better push off the ground."

Softball team
been firing off
the long ball
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Al and Jill Palladino were sit-
ting in the top row of the left-.
field bleachers at the Back Yard
ballpark Friday night when the
second-inning home run soared
over their heads and onto a prac-
tice soccer field.
It was a joyous sight a
grand slam hit by their shortstop
daughter Heather, a pale figure
in the distance who happily
rounded the bases as the score-
board showed the Key West
High School softball team now
ahead of Port St. Lucie, 7-0.
.The memories of a child they
have nurtured and coached
flooded back of her swinging
a bat as a 3-year-old and, in the
ensuing years, of all those sunny
days at Watson Field on Big Pine
Key.
"I'd hit ball after ball to her
there and she'd never stop, she
was relentless," said Al, an old
shortstop himself.
In the fourth inning,
Palladino homered again to help
put the finishing touches on an
18-0 Conch victory in the first
game of a two-game series.


--_-. ,-- Pitcher
.-.- Lindsa y
S Y ochum,
SW) backed by
sterling
defense, threw
a five-inning
. no-hitter for
I the Conchs.
The 10-run
PALLADINO h *-r
PALLADINO mercy rule
ended the game after the top of
the fifth.
The Key West power explo-
sion Ashley Henriquez hit
three over the fence came out
of the blue. The Conchs- had not
homered in their previous nine
games.
They finally attacked the ball
as they have been coached,
although the weekend's out-
bursts they won again
Saturday, 17-4 came against
an inexperienced 5A team that
left Key West with a 2-12 record.
The Conchs, 9-3 after the
weekend sweep and a victory at
Marathon on Monday, will play
host to a strong Gulliver Prep
team at 6:30 p.m. Friday.
Saturday, the Conchs won
easily behind Henriquez's pitch-
ing. The hits kept flowing -
among them, two triples by
Victoria Commander, a triple
and double by Jianna
Hernandez, a two-RBI single by


Sarah Rodriguez and three hits
by catcher Allison Baker.
And Palladino, who has spent
countless hours with hitting
coach Frank Ratcliff, hit another
home run.
"She's very quiet and doesn't
say much; she leads by exam-
ple," Al Palladino said as he and
Jill again sat atop the bleachers
early Saturday afternoon.
They reminisced about
Watson Field and the many
Conch athletes from Big Pine
with whom Heather has grown
up playing baseball, softball and
soccer: Hali Lombardi, Jessica
Kilgore, Kara Haack, Zoe
Vincent, Monica Bertram,
Kaitlin Hopkins, Mary Joe
Bruce the list went on.
Now, the high-school days
are winding down. The days of
Palladino leaving home at 7:30
in the morning and not returning
until 9:30 at night will be gone.
Late this summer, she will go to
the University of Central Florida
on an athletic scholarship.
"It's going to be sad when it's
over," Jill said.
"This is our whole life," her
husband added.
The game ended, and the
Palladinos descended the
bleachers, eager to seek out their
sudden slugger, knowing she
would be trying her best to avoid
the spotlight.

Conchs power past Marathon


SOFTBALL / From 20

Conch pitcher Lindsay Yochum
and finished with 12 hits.
However, it couldn't match Key
West's 21-hit performance
against Dolphins pitcher Megan
Gardner.
"We know they are going to
hit Megan, they are that good,"
Frank said. "We just need to put
the good defense behind her, and
I think we could've done better."
Frank said Marathon's four
errors directly led to Key West
scores and extended innings that
should've been over quick.
Key West leadoff hitter
Jianna Hernandez opened the
game to Key West cheers after a
solo home run over the short
left-field fence at Stanley
Switlik Elementary School in
Marathon. Key West added one
more run in the inning.
But Marathon answered back
with two runs on RBI singles by
Gardner and Yari Alpizar.
- The Conchs added another
run after back-to-back singles in
the second and brought home
two more runs in the third after
three straight hits. Yochum held
Marathon scoreless in the sec-
ond and third innings.
In the fourth, she helped her
cause with a two-run homer over
the fence. But Marathon surged
in the fourth when Abi Meyer
spanked a three-run triple to cut


the Dolphins' deficit to 7-5.
Key West's Heather Palladinbo
added another homer in the fifth
and was followed by more RBIs
to make it a 10-5 game.
Marathon capitalized on a Key
West error when Alpizar scored
on a missed fly ball.
The game went back and
forth until the seventh, when
timely Conch hits, including
another homer by Palladino,
combined with untimely
Dolphin errors to give Key West


a seven-run inning.
Palladino finished 3-for-5 at
the plate, although Victoria
Commander led the Conchs with
a 4-for-5 day.
For the Dolphins, Sandahl
Stephens and Alexis Culver fin-
ished 3-for-5, while Alpizar
went 2-for-3.
Key West hosts Gulliver Prep
at 6:30 p.m. Friday. Marathon
travels to Doral Academy at 4
p.m. Thursday.

to beat Curley. "Mike has really
been a nice addition," the coach
said. "He's doing a good job."
Shortstop Ray Ferro and third
baseman Chris Noble anchored
a defense that helped shut down
the Knights.
Rafael Medina and Noble
each had two hits in the win over
Curley.
"Our lineup got a lot of hits
but not the big ones that would
have helped us pull away,"
Meyers said.
The winning run against
Ransom March 6 came home on
three straight walks issued by
the Raiders.
Two of them to hitting


leaders Medina and Lee Cash
(two hits each in the game)
were intentional.
"They wanted to stay away
from Ralph and Lee, so they
threw around them to pitch to
Chris Noble,", Meyers said-
"That loaded the bases, and then
they walked Chris."
Noble got the decision in
relief of starter Ryan
Biondoletti. "They both pitched
a heck of a game," Meyers said.
Medina doubled and singled,
and Cash had a pair of singles to
lead the Cane lineup.
The Hurricanes travel to
South Dade High School for a
non-district game Thursday.
A rematch against Curley,
originally scheduled today, has
been moved to March 27.

The Marathon High School
tennis team recorded another
individual singles win in a
Miami double-header against
Palmer Trinity and Westminster
Christian on Saturday, although
the Dolphins' tennis squads are
still without team wins.
No. 2 girls player Kelsey
Wonderlin recorded the only vic-
tory, 9-7, in a hard-fought match
against a Palmer opponent. The
girls' team (0-7) lost 6-1.
J "She played really really
well," coach Mark Hooper said.
"Basically, she was hitting the
ball with authority, and when she
does that she can compete very
well."
No. 1 Angela Farello lost 8-1;
No. 3 Annabelle Walker lost 8-0;
No. 4 Emily Bradshaw lost 8-2;
and No. 5 Sarah Bradshaw lost
8-0.
The next closest match came
at No. 2 doubles, which Walker
and Emily Bradshaw lost 8-5.
The No. 1 team of Farello and
Wonderlin lost 8-2.
"They just went against play-
ers that were really good,"
Hooper said. "I thought our girls
should've won a few more
games. They got to deuce sever-
al times but couldn't close it
out."
Against Westminster, the
closest matches came from
Walker and Sarah Bradshaw,
each of whom lost 8-4.
Marathon was again without
senior No. 1 player Gabby
Brossard, who is slowly recover-
ing from pneumonia and may


return in another week, Hooper
said.
"Most of my girls are in mid-
dle school," Hooper said, "so the
future looks bright for these girls
if they continue to put in the
effort." ,
For the boys' team (0-5), the
Dolphins were nearly swept in
singles games by the Falcons in
the 7-0 loss.
No. 1 Alex Donaldson lost 8-
0; No. 2 Kerry Wonderlin lost 8-
1; No. 3 John Danaher lost 8-1:
No. 4 John Lancaster lost 8-1;
and No. 5 Alex Cherniavsky lost
8-0.
The closest match came at
No. 1 doubles, as Donaldson and
Wonderlin battled out a narrow


7-9 defeat.
"The other team didn't play
their No. 1 or No. 2 players, so
we were better matched,"
Hooper said. "But we kept the
ball in play, which is the key to
competing at high school ten-
nis."
Marathon didn't fare as well
against Westminster, which also
beat the Dolphins 7-0 and only
allowed a spark from Danaher,
who lost an 8-3 match.
"Of the boys, the one that
won the most games was John
Danaher," Hooper said. "Again,
he is a seventh-grader and he
was playing against a junior. We
have a young team, and we
understand that."

By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


The Lady Hurricanes were
serving up aces to start the Coral
Shores girls' tennis season.
On Thursday, the undefeated
Lady Canes beat LaSalle, 5-2,
for their fourth team victory in
four starts.
"We should have shut them
out," coach Blake Fry said.
Freshman Annie Leopold has
not lost a singles match, and
moved up a notch to the No. 3
spot.
Allison Rhyne at No. 2,
Simona Lichvar (No. 4) and
Hannah Padgett (No. 5) are all 3-
1 in singles.
Senior Sydney Stroup, play-
ing the toughest spot at No. 1,
"has started to turn her game
around," Fry said.
Against an inexperienced St.
Brendan team on Thursday, the
Canes shuffled the lineup, mov-
ing Stellar Levy to No. 1. She
won, as did Lichvar at No. 2,
Padgett at 3, Tianna Morton at 4
and Devon Barrett at 5. "It was a
great effort by our youngsters,"
Fry said.
Stroup and Levy now play the
regular No. 1 doubles spot, with
Rhyne and Leopold solid at No. 2.
Results from a Tuesday
match against Marathon High
School were not available at
press time.
Palmer Trinity. visits Coral
Shores at 2 p.m. Thursday for
what should be a challenging
match, Fry said.
The Hurricane boys have not
won a team match.

enough event wins to finish sec-
ond in a four-team meet Friday.
Archbishop Curley topped the
scoring, while the Canes out-
pointed LaSalle and St. Brendan.
Richard Black continued his
win streak in. the boys' two-mile
run with a first-place finish, and
added a.win in the 800.
Erin Fry won the girls' mile
run and took second in the 800
meters.
Tyler Boban matched the feat
on the boys' side, winning the
mile and getting second in the
800.

pole vault. Manny Gonzales won
the boys' event, and Kathleen
Cotrell won the girls' side. Nick
Blankenship was second among
the boys.

Lacrosse
Coral Shores' girls lacrosse
team started well in a Monday
game against Palmer Trinity but
fell to a Falcon seven-goal come-
back, 9-8:
The Lady Canes (2-5)
"seemed unstoppable" as they
scored three times early in the
second half to go up 7-2, coach
Mark Hall said.
Coral Shores scored with 29
seconds left to come within a
goal, but Palmer (4-3) ran out the
clock.
Rachel Catanio and Darcie
Spaulding split the Cane scoring
with four goals each. Sarah
Taylor made 13 saves in the net.
Starters Brittany Wood and
Lexie Glista are out with leg
injuries, and are "sorely missed,"
said the coach.

0-8 with a 12-0 loss to a strong
Palmer club.

won two middle-school games in
the Parkland Lacrosse Festival
Saturday.

Conch baseball
drops a pair
in Miami-Dade
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

It was a somber group of Key
West High School baseball play-
ers that returned home Saturday
evening after a lost weekend in
Miami.
"I think they were in shock,"
coach Miguel Menendez said.
"They didn't expect to go up and
lose two games. I didn't expect to
lose two games."
The Conchs, on the road for
the first time this season, lost to
St. Brendan, 5-1, Friday after-
noon on a seventh-inning grand
Sslam.
On Saturday, in a long-await-
ed game against Belen Jesuit, the
Conchs took a 13-3 beating in a
contest stopped in the sixth
inning because of the 10-run
mercy rule.
The two District 16-4A
defeats dropped the Conchs'
record to 1-2 in the district and 5-
4 overall.
The Conchs struggled against
St. Brendan, a team they expect-
ed to defeat. Befuddled by Sabres
pitcher Jovan Perez, they'lrailed
1-0 before finally tied the game in
the top of the seventh on a sacri-
fice fly by Frankie Ratcliff.
St. Brendan chased starting
pitcher Radier Gonzalez in its
half of the seventh, loading the
bases with no outs. Blayne Weller
came in and struck out the next

batter but then Perez hit a grand
slam over the right-field fence
that touched off a wild Sabres'
celebration.
"We played awful,"
Menendez said. "We had no
intensity and it came back to
haunt us."
The Conchs went to a Miami
Heat game Friday night, then
took the field Saturday afternoon
at Belen hoping to avenge a loss
to the Wolverines that knocked
them out of the playoffs last
spring.
But Belen's left-handed
Mauricio Rodriguez, the Conchs'
nemesis a year ago, pitched and
batted the Wolverines to an easy
13-3 victory.


First KAIR run

takes a wrong turn


But it's still
a big success,
drawing over 150
The inaugural KAIR 10K Run
and 5K Run/Walk was a success
Sunday, with more than 150 par-
ticipants joining at Sombrero
Beach in Marathon on a perfect
Keys Day.
Good-sported .10K runners
got a little more than they
planned for extra distance that
got added to the course after the
lead runner turned off the original
out-and-back course due to lack
of course markings, to run around
the Sombrero Country Club golf
course, adding about half a mile,
making the distance closer to an
11K than the 10K originally
planed.
Unfortunately, the lead 10K
runner at the time did not know
Sombrero Boulevard looped
around to join back at the same
place and turned around early
and continued back the way he
came.
All the other 10K runners con-
tinued around the golf course and
back to the finish, in a little
longer time then anticipated.
When it all got back on track,
Tavemier's Richard Black timed
41 minutes, 4 seconds to take top
honors for the men.
Key West's Jeremy Smith ran
a 42:25 for second and Key
Largo's Hugo Cortes a 47:43 for
third (and master's title), spread-
ing the top three places from one
end of the Keys to the other.
For the women, it was


Marathon's Laure Grube at 48:33
all the way for the top spot and
Tavernier's Joan Scholz at 50:58
for the female master's win and
third overall female. Key West
runner Jill Haughey, 50:04, was
second overall, so like the men,
the women covered all ends of
the Keys in winning positions.
The 5K runners had a better
time of it, with the largest field of
the race.
Marathon's Martin Sykut,
18:29, led the group to finish first
overall for the men 5Kers while"
Vero Beach runner Michael
McLaughlin, at 20:31, took top
male masters honors. Second-
place overall male .5K finisher
was Key West's Orion Griffiths
at 19:31.
Female 5K runners were led
by Tavernier's Keira Herlth at
-24:06 and Southwest Ranches
runner Cindy Joseph, 29:51, tak-
ing top 5K female master's hon-
ors.
Key Largo's Ingelise Giles at
24:54 was second overall among
female 5K finishers to win her
age group. Key West's Elizabeth
King, at 27:19, took the third
overall female 5K spot.
Walkers were led by Key
Wester Chester Kalb II at 31:13.
Female walkers were led by
Marathon's Cory Walter at 31:32.
Proceeds benefited KAIR, or
Keys Interdenominational Re-
sources, a Middle Keys group
providing for the needy.

Helped by Beleh errors, the
Conchs trailed by only 4-3 and
seemed poised for a comeback
until Rodriguez hit a two-run
double in the fourth.
It was the second consecutive
defeat for Key West ace Daniel
Foltz, who gave up eight runs and
11 hits in four innings as his
record dropped to 2-2.
"I thought the emotion was
there but we didn't play very
well," Menendez said. "They did
a great job and were more pre-
pared than we were. I guess I did-
n't do my job as a coach to get
them ready to play."
The Conchs will return to Rex

Williston.

Lady Canes staying close


But the team
is plagued by
one-run losses
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The Lady Canes kept things
exciting with three close softball
games last week, but the last two
did not go Coral Shores' way.
"We had three one-run games
in a week," co-coach Mike Young
said. "Give me a break."
After beating Marathon High
School, 4-3, with a seventh-
inning rally March 5, the Canes
(2-5) came up short against
Colonial Christian, 11-10,
Thursday and Ransom
Everglades, 9-8, Friday. -
"A lot of it is confidence,"
Young said. "We need to go up to
the plate knowing that we're
going to hit the ball."
Coral Shores outslugged
Ransom, nine hits to five; and
was leading, 5-3.
Ransom answered by scoring
six runs in the bottom of the sixth


inning.
The Lady Canes scored three
times in the seventh but could not
get the tying run across.
"We had a lot of hits but only
two or three were the big ones we
need," co-coach Paul Grewe said.
Stephanie Campos and Kelsie
Baker each had two hits for two
RBI. Tessie Worden drove in two
runs with a double. Ciara
Sanchez also doubled.
Defensive breakdowns cost
the Lady Canes against Colonial
Christian. "We made seven
errors. It's tough to win doing
that," Grewe said.
Colonial started with four-run
rallies in both the first and second
innings, rushing to an 8-2 lead.
Coral Shores refused to buck-
le, firing back with three runs in
the third and five runs in the
fourth to grab a 10-9 lead.
There the Cane offense with-
ered, going the final three innings
without scoring another run.
Colonial scored twice in the sixth
for the win.
Freshman pitcher Holly Given
tried to help her own cause with a


3-for-4 day at the plate. She
tripled twice, driving in four runs.
Chelsea Russell and Baker
also contributed two hits each to
the Canes' 13-hit offense.
Campos picked up two RBI.
"We're a young team but a
good team," Young said. "We
need some people to step up."
The Canes face two big
District 16-3A rivals this week.
Results from Tuesday's game
against Archbishop Carroll were
not available at press time.
Gulliver Prep (6-1), the state's
No. 3-ranked Class 3A club, pulls
into Tavernier for a 10 a.m.
Saturday game.
Baker, a senior outfielder,
leads Coral Shores with a .360
batting average (9-for-25, five
RBI) after seven games.
Given has a team-high seven
RBI and three triples while hit-
ting .292.
Ciara Sanchez is hitting .333
with a team-high seven stolen
bases and .609 on-base percent-
age. Chelsea Russell also has a
.609 on-base record and a team-
high seven runs scored, to go
with the freshman's .353 batting
average.

Permit us to help with your crab bait


Proper technique
is essential to
nabbing the catch
We've had a steady dose of
moderate winds, not calm and not
too rough. That's been the norm
for most of this winter.
In fact, looking at some of the
history the past several years, we
have had one of the calmest years
on average so far this year. There
have been more than 20 days
with the winds at an average of
10 knots or less so far. The nor-
mal is only 8 from the first of the
year to mid-March.
So what is your excuse for not
getting out as much as you want?
If the ocean is a bit bumpy for
you, there are always the bay and
area bridge channels, all provid-
ing good action as well as dinner
fish.
For those who have gone, the
reef action has been quite good
and with the darkening moon,
this should only get better this
week. One of the keys to working
the reef is that there is a whole lot
more than just the drop-off.
Problem is, most don't know
how to work areas other than just
anchoring up for yellowtail.
This week at our outdoor
amphitheater at our Marine
Educational Center at the store at
mile marker 50 bayside, we'll be
covering the different aspects of
working the reef; not just the
drop-off, but also the plateau,
with all of its patches of coral and
grass beds.
We'll discuss the variation of
currents you find, both velocity
and direction on any given day.
We start at 6:30 p.m., but we will
have a bull session for those who
come early. It is absolutely free
and everyone is invited.
The permit have been making
a big-time appearance in many of
the usual locations, the backcoun-
try flats and banks. Also, many
have been showing up along the
oceanside flats and humps. It's
just about the right time for them,
as March is one of the big months
for numerous permit to be around
in the huge schools. The wrecks
in the Gulf have been covered
with them for a while now, as
well as some of the Hawk
Channel wrecks.
The best bait for a permit by
far is a live small blue crab. If
he's dead, so are your chances of
hooking a fish, for the most part.
The problem with fishing crab
for most is the knowledge of how
to hook one without killing it or
to make it swim properly and not
look just like a fishy weight.
You use a hook that matches


the size of
the bait; too
big, and d
he's going
down, too
small and
the bend of
y the hook
Swill not
exceed the
width of
the crab's
body, giv-
ing you vir-
Dave Navarro tually no
chance of
getting your hook into anything.
Hook the crab from the under-
side to the top in one of the cor-
ners (left or right side), and do it
gently. A crab has a hard shell and
you will have to work the hook
through easy so as riot to shatter
the entire area (this is most often
the case, even with professional
anglers, when a school is
approaching and everyone gets so
excited they forget to pay atten-
tion).
Work it through the top of the
shell as well and turn the hook so
it looks like another leg. I prefer
to use the Mustad-style 92661
hook in 1/0 to 3/0 for permit
because it is a bronze hook that
matches the color of the crab and
will not have any shine to it as a
silver hook does.
Permit do not have teeth, so no
leader is needed. You don't want
to have too heavy of a line as to
spook them because they are not
dumb. That's why they are

classed as a game fish. Double
line usually will do just fine if
,you are using verT light line. If
ou %% ant to use a leader, I recom-
mend fluorocarbon for its invisi-
bility.
Casting the crab is where most
anglers need help.
You can best understand how
to do it properly if you just imag-
ine that you are on the hook trav-
eling through the air and going
Splat!
Cast the crab gently and it will
last much longer. If you knock it
senseless, it will not swim prop-
erly, looking lively .(how frisky
are you after walking into a
wall?).
Once you knock the flap on its
bottom open, you do not have
much time with that crab. Used
properly, they can last most of the
day on a hook and ones that are
not used will live in a live well
for many days. .


Once you hook one, don't
think you are going to horse them
right in. They are sought-after for
their fighting ability. They will
fight almost to the death. It is
important that you "breath" them
for a spell when releasing them so
they will have a fighting chance
to make it past the predators (he
just made your day, so don't
make it his last).
Tarpon have been coming in
these areas more and more. In the
next few weeks, we should see a
huge influx of tarpon in the local
bridge channels, including some
of the big ones. They have been
numerousin the lower backcoun-
try for several weeks now. With
the recent: influx of mullet, the
tarpon usually move in soon.
