Cay Clubs wants


bite of the Bight


Company hopes
to obtain leases
for 2 restaurants
By STEVE SANOSKI
Keys Sunday Reporter
ssanoski@keynoter.com

The tenant of two prominent
waterfront restaurants and bars
at the Key West Bight is taking
steps to sell the leases for Turtle
Kraals and the Half Shell Raw
Bar to Cay Clubs Resorts and
Marinas.


Both Turtle Kraals and the
Half Shell are owned by the
city of Key West. The
Southernmost Restaurant
Group, owned by Gene Smith,
has held the lease to the neigh-
boring businesses since 2004,
city Port Operations Director
Raymond Archer said.
Smith is asking the Key
West Bight Board to approve a
re-assignment of the business-

Citations could
be issued for
failure to comply
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

Florida Department of
Transportation officials are vis-
iting businesses along U.S. 1 in
a revitalized enforcement of
encroachment into the state-
owned right of way.
Although DOT officials say
most business owners are typi-
cally unaware of right-of-way
violations and, when informed,
willingly come into compliance,
not everyone is finding it that
easy.
"They are definitely harass-
ing me," said Don Freeman,
owner of Freeman's Automotive
in Marathon, where Freeman
parks cars awaiting repair on a
gravel strip just off the U.S. 1
curb. There is no other space on
his property to store vehicles
long-term.
"It's been a parking lot since
I've owned it for 10 years,"
Freeman said. "Now they are


saying I can't park cars there
because it's DOT property."
The issue is public safety,
said DOT Operations Manager
Kevin Baker, who has led the
initiative.
He said DOT had been very
lenient enforcing right-of-way
rules, particularly with the
placement of signs, because of
the loss of business during the
past two hurricane seasons -
but not any more.
"There are people placing
advertising signs in one form or-
another, there are people selling
cars and. boats- and people
repairing cars and boats," Baker
said. "It's gotten to a point
where it's causing a concern for
public safety, and if we don't put
a stop to it, it just continues to
grow."
Baker said the problem is
Keyswide and DOT is increas-
ing enforcement from Key West
to Key Largo, although a con-
centration of violations seems to
be in Marathon. Baker said busi-
nesses using the rights of way
for short-term customer parking
are not deemed in violation.


The sizes of rights of way
varies across U.S. 1, Baker said,
but they normally run at least
from the edge of the highway to
where utility poles are placed;
Baker said he has asked the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
to follow up notices of viola-
tions and request compliance or
possibly issue a citation. None
have yet been issued.&
According to Florida statutes,
each day a violation continues ik,
a separate offense. Each offense
can result in up to a $500 fine or
up to si\ months iu lad or both.
Freeman said a DOT official
Visited his business to address a
violation of storing vehicles in
the right of way, \ which could
potentially impair the sight of
drivers turning onto U.S. 1. He
said he was later visited by City
Manager Mike Puto and
Sheriff's Office Capt. Bob
Peryam.
"The [DOT official] saw he
didn't get very far with me, so
he had Puto and Peryam come
over," said Freeman, who has
since moved a few of the vehi-
cles off the right of way. "I told
them flat out I'm still going to
use that as a parking area."


Okeechobee 4 feet below average


RESTRICTIONS / From 7


The lake that is the linchpin
of South Florida's water-supply
system dropped below 11 feet
this week, more than 4 feet
below historical averages.
"When Lake Okeechobee
starts falling, it generally keeps
falling until the rainy season,"
said Cecilia Weaver, Keys rep-
resentative for the Water
Management District. "It does-
n't look good."
Conservation rules are more
restrictive closer to Lake
Okeechobee than in South
Florida, where mandatory rules
are considered "moderate."
Rules going into effect
locally Thursday will sound
familiar to residents who recall
the water-shortage of 2000-01.
"They're essentially the same,"
Reynolds said.
The rules limit most lawn-
watering to specific days of the
week, depending on street
address odd numbers are
permitted on Monday,
Wednesday or Saturday; even
numbers on Tuesday, Thursday
or Sunday.
Lawn and garden watering
also will be limited to between
4 and 8 a.m. and 5 and 7 p.m.
on specified days. The same


days and hours apply for wash-
ing vehicles.
Boaters who return from a
day at sea can wash their boats
at any time, but for no longer

than 15 minutes.
Monroe County currently is
authorized to receive a maxi-
mum of 17 million .to 18 mil-
lion gallons a day from the
Biscayne Aquifer during Thte
winter dry season. That water
for the utility's 45.000 accounts
comes from the FKAA's
Florida City wellfield.
But the aquifer is replen-
ished by water funneled to
South Florida through flood-
control canals.
"When Lake Okeechobee
gets too low, the district can't
deliver water through the
canals," Reynolds said. "That
means we depend on what's left
in the ground."
Lake Okeechobee also is


considered a backup source for
Keys freshwater supplies, but
not the first backup site.
Mandatory use restrictions
also include a 15 percent sur-
charge on water costs for peo-
ple or businesses that use more
than 6,000 gallons per month.
"That won't affect most peo-
ple here because they already
use water wisely," Reynolds
said. "It will affect people who
like to irrigate like crazy.
"They need to either back
off on the watering, or keep it
up and get ready to write a
check."
Districtwide rainfall
amounted to 40.75 inches in
2006, one of the six driest years
since 1932. Rainfall for, The
first to months of 2007 are
half the average year.
The Phase I restrictions are
intended to reduce overall
water .use b) 15 percent.
although that is a goal. not a
mandate.
County and municipal code-
enforcement officers are
empowered to write citations
for violations. The FKAA
focuses on conservation educa-
tion, Reynolds said.
Florida's rainy season typi-
cally begins in May, but a
2000-01 drought lasted until
the fall.

request is on the agenda for the
Bight Board's meeting
Wednesday at 9 a.m. at Old City
Hall, 510 Greene St.
"The provisions of the lease
allow for tenets to request a lease
transfer to another party," Archer
said. "We'll do research on the
prospective tenant and meet with
them, and if the evidence shows
they can continue to operate a
successful business, we'll go
ahead and approve the transfer."
Should the Bight Board
approve Smith's request, the
Key West City Commission
would still have to approve the
lease re-assignment before the
deal between Southernmost
Rest-aurant Group and Cay
Clubs can be finalized.
Clearwater-based Cay Clubs
would pick up the remains of a
20-year lease with the city that
expires in April 2017.
Archer said the function of
the properties could not change
following a lease transfer.
"They'll still have to operate
as restaurants," he said. "Any
new tenant can come to us with
requests to make structural
improvements or aesthetic
changes, but the essential func-
tion of the properties must
remain the same."
Meetings between the Key
West Bight Board and Cay Clubs
have already been scheduled for
the near future, Archer said.
In a March 15 memo to
Archer and the Bight Board, City
Property Manager Marilyn
Wilbarger recommended the
board approve the lease re-
assignment.


"They (Cay Clubs) have no
plans to change the use of either
restaurant except for menu
changes and upgrades to finish-
es," the memo reads.
Cay Clubs Vice President of
Acquisitions Frank Rego
declined comment on Turtle
Kraals and the Half Shell, and
wouldn't confirm or deny
rumors his company is interested
in acquiring the A&B Lobster
House, also at the Key West
Bight.
In Key Largo, the company
owns the Bayside Resort (now
Bayside Cay Club) and Pilot
House Marina (now Key Largo
Cay Club).
Its holdings in Marathon and
Islamorada include the Marathon
Marina and Boatyard (now
Marathon Cay Club), Sombrero
Marina (now Sombrero Cay
Club), the Mangrove Marina
(now Tavemier Cay Club) and
the Tropical Vista Motel (now
Islamorada Cay Club).
The Monroe County School
Board finalized a contract with
Cay Clubs late last year for the
company to develop Marathon
Manor, a former convalescent
center next to Marathon High
School, into a 65-unit affordable
housing complex. However, Cay

Many areas were safety-pre-

advance divers, but some divers
enjoyed going into other areas
intended to remain sealed.
"Any divers go beyond the
area that was prepared, divers are
pushing the limits," Heck said,
"even if they have training."
At least two other people have
died after diving the Spiegel
Grove, a woman in 2003 and a
man in 2005. Neither was trapped
on the ship.
In 1994, a woman died after
being trapped inside the Bibb

New report details mass-migration strategy


By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

The death of Cuban leader
Fidel Castro alone would likely
not trigger a mass exodus to
Florida similar to the Mariel
boatlift in 1980. But federal,
state and local officials have con-
tingency plans just in case.
The plans aim to prevent a
large migration and stop U.S.-
based boats from assisting
Cubans trying to come here, a
report released this week reveals.
The report shows that author-
ities are prepared to take drastic
measures that could temporarily
restrict and even halt recreation-
al and commercial activities in
the Keys and South Florida. But
it also says authorities hope such
steps won't be necessary.
Andy Newman, public rela-
tions account supervisor for the
Monroe County Tourist
Development Council, wrote the
report titled "Cuba: Potential
Mass Migration Impacts," which
was finalized March 8 and
released Monday.
In it, Newman states that most
informed sources say Fidel's
brother Raul has had a firm grip
on power ever since Fidel had
stomach surgery last summer,
when it appeared he could die at
any moment.
S"They don't think there will
be any civil unrest, because the
transition of power has effective-
ly already occurred," the report
quotes an unnamed "news exec-
utive at Miami's top Hispanic
television station."
This scenario is just fine with
U.S. authorities, Newman
writes. In fact, the Department of
Homeland Security has a plan
called Operation Vigilant Sentry
aimed at coordinating local, state
and federal responses to Fidel's.
death, and that under the plan,
"U.S. authorities have made it
clear that they plan to utilize all
resources to prohibit mass immi-
gration to America and they
won't tolerate boats leaving U.S.
waters to head for Cuba."
A practice run of Operation
Vigilant Sentry took place earlier
this month.
Nevertheless, the report states
government agencies are factor-
ing in a number of possibilities
in case their efforts to stop a
large exodus fail because "no
one really knows what the reac-
tion will be to Castro's death or
any other factors that might trig-
ger a mass migration event."

The highway
The report focuses on offi-
cials' plans for patrolling U.S. 1,
coastal waterways, marinas and


local airports in case Fidel's death
causes a surge of migration to
South Florida and the Keys.
The report quotes Monroe
County Sheriff's Office Col. Rick
Ramsay saying that his depart-
ment's goal is to keep U.S. 1
open, but scrutinize vehicles trail-
ing boats, especially those longer
than 17 feet.
"We don't want to shut down
all business. We just want to con-
trol people with boats," he said.
The Monroe County Emer-
gency Operations Center would
initially be activated to coordi-
nate with local and state agencies,
but it would transition to a sup-
port role once the proper federal
authorities arrived, Emergency
Management Director Irene
Toner says in the report.

Waterways, marinas
Most marine law enforcement
would focus on the Florida Straits
and other waters surrounding the
Keys and the South Florida main-
land, Newman wrote.
In a few worst-case models
from federal, state and local
agencies, marinas and airports
would be closed and fuel sales
limited, according to Newman.
But a more likely- scenario
would be one where marine traf-
fic is restricted, U.S. Coast Guard
Deputy Cmdr. Gwen Keenan
says in the report. The Coast
Guard and U.S. Navy could also
create "security zones" with sev-
eral restrictions in specific areas.
"Constraints might range from
a temporary closure of all water-
ways, to restricted transit within a
certain distance offshore (state or
federal waters, three or 12 nauti-
cal miles respectively) or to cer-
tain types of traffic (closure of
recreational traffic, while com-
mercial traffic could continue),"
Newman wrote.
If a mass migration happens,
Newman states the Navy could
establish a migrant processing
station at Naval Air Station Key
West.

Airports
Worst-case scenarios have
some or all of general aviation
channels in the area temporarily
closed, but more likely, says
county Airports Director Peter
Horton, security would be signif-
icantly increased without a
"major physical interruption to
commercial or general aviation
service to Florida Keys Marathon
and Key West International air-
ports."
The report notes that security
measures after Fidel's death
could affect local businesses, but
the U.S. response could counter-
balance negative economic


impacts.
"From a tourism standpoint,
tourism resources could be
requested to assist in a major cri-
sis. Hundreds of federal/contract


[workers] are likely to come to
the Keys and will require lodging
and meals. Ground transportation
might also be needed," the report
states.

Opinion


We need to take

water limits seriously

Those who weren't Keys residents the last time water-use
restrictions were put in place by the South Florida Water
Management District may not realize what it takes for the dis-
trict to declare such an emergency.
It takes not a lot but a little little rainfall to replenish our
mainland water supply.
Last year the district recorded just 40.75 inches of rain -
making 2006 one of the six driest years since 1932. Rainfall
in January and February this year is half the average.
If that trend continues, the pipeline that brings water to the
Keys eventually could run dry, although that is not considered
imminent.
The Water Management District imposed what it calls
Phase 1 restrictions, taking effect this Thursday. Primarily,
these limit days and times for yard watering and car washing.
The last time this happened was in December 2000.
Restrictions lasted until October 2001 long enough that
abiding by them became habit for most.
We hope everyone understands what limiting water use
means. It's about the ability of our natural resources to sustain
us. And in that regard, we're having troubles.
The restrictions:

Lawn watering
Addresses ending in odd numbers (homes and boat
slips) can water lawns from 4 to 8 a.m. Monday, Wednesdays
and Saturdays. Addresses ending in even numbers can water
lawns from 4 to 8 a.m. Tuesday, Thursdays and Sundays.
Evening watering is allowed by hand from 5 to 7 p.m. on
designated days.
Any water user without a posted address will use even-
day rules.
No lawn watering is permitted Fridays.
Landscaping less than 30 days old can be watered daily
from 4 to 8 a.m. weekdays by automatic systems, and by
hand at any time.

Cars, boats
Cars, boats and other equipment can be washed from 4
to 8 a.m. and 5 to 7 p.m. on designated days by address (see
lawn watering). A hose with a cutoff nozzle must be used.
Boats in saltwater can be flushed and rinsed every day
for a maximum of 15 minutes.
Liveaboard boats can be washed down on designated
days (use boat slip number for even or odd address).

Miscellaneous
Freshwater wells in the Keys are not affected by restric-
tions since they are not connected to the Biscayne Aquifer.
Treated wastewater can be used without restriction.
Swimming pools can be filled at any time. Water drained
from pools during the shortage must be directed to a non-
paved surface.

At a meeting hosted by state Rep. Ron

the voters have a legal right to dissolve the city.
Mr. Saunders will hold public hearings. After the
hearings, the referendum process goes to the
Florida Legislature and subsequently on to a bal-
lot.
Petitions are being mailed to registered voters
but not all at once; they are mailed in staggered

That was actually part of the deal: If we bought
the house, we had to take the bird, which isn't a
problem being the animal lovers we are.
Anyway, I have a million (or 10) thank yous
to send my friend Maya for bringing my Petey
back home. It took all day and she had meetings
on top of meetings of her own to keep her cen-
ter open, and of course the constant ringing of
her phone to rescue other wild birds that were
injured.
It was my own fault the door was slightly
cracked and was bumped open by the dog.
Lesson learned the hard way.

Navy, others face housing challenge


EDITOR:
Monroe County School District
proposals for housing underscores
the problem that all employers in the
Florida Keys face affordable
housing and, more importantly,
affordable living. It is important for
all employers to look for opportuni-
ties to alleviate this challenge and I
believe the district's proposals
deserve a thorough review.
Recently, the school system pro-
posed district housing on a parcel of
ldnd in the U.S. Navy's Sigsbee
housing community. News reporting
in 2006 brought it to my attention
when I was commanding officer of
the air station. I wrote a letter to
Superintendent Randy Acevedo
expressing my concerns and request-
ed more information. In July 2006,
Capt. J.R. Brown assumed command
of the air station and picked up
where I left off pushing for afford-
able living for Navy personnel.
The Navy in Key West is like all
other employers facing the affordable
living challenge. Not all personnel
working on the base are active-duty
military; the majority are federal
civilians.
When I was commanding officer,
Monroe County's federal civilian
employees were granted a locality
pay increase equivalent to other fed-
eral employees in the Greater Miami
area. This was a significant increase
in their monthly salaries. Also, we
were fortunate to receive special
approval that allowed vacant military
housing to be rented to Department
of Defense employees. Once hurri-
cane repairs are complete, the Navy's
affordable-housing effort to assist its
civilian employees will eventually
move 300 families from the local
rental market to government housing.


Capt. Brown is continuing the
campaign for affordable living by
pushing for below-market rental rates
for DoD and federal civilian workers
as military housing transitions to pri-
vatization later this year. He is also
continuing the fight for cost-of-living
adjustments to military and civilian
salaries offered at other remote mili-
tary locations. If history is any sort
of predictor, continued change from
his efforts will happen after he's
gone from his job.
I expressed my reservations about
School District housing on Sigsbee.
A week before Capt. Brown cited his
concerns for the proposed project in
a letter to Superintendent Acevedo, a
contractor hired by the developer
said the district was wasting its time
trying to put housing on Sigsbee. In
all likelihood, there are better and
timelier solutions.
One thing is clear: Affordable
housing is only one element of the
affordable living equation. Each
commanding officer at NAS Key
West has campaigned for housing
and salary improvements for years.
The changes don't come easy and
every piece helps. Working deliber-
ately within the limits of legal
authority is sometimes burdensome,
but necessary.
Affordable living in the Keys is a
common challenge that did not
develop overnight and will only be
solved when all interested parties
continue working together.
James K. Scholl
Key West

Editor's note: Capt. Brown is on
the agenda for a housing discussion
at 10 a.m. Monday, when the School
Board meets in workshop at 241
Trumbo Road, Key West.

Aquaculture bill makes

sense for United States


The Bush Administration's
National Offshore Aquaculture Act of
2007 holds great promise for secur-
ing the future of America's seafood
supply.
If enacted by Congress, the pro-
posed legislation will allow
American business to participate in
this $70 billion global industry while
ensuring stringent environmental
protections. Commercial ventures
would be allowed to operate fish and
shellfish farms between three and
200 miles off our coasts in federal
ocean waters. This marine area cov-


ers an amount of space that
is larger than the combined
land area of the lower 48
states.
Aquaculture makes good
economic sense.
Raising fish and shellfish
for food has become a
global reality. As other
countries have continued to
develop aquaculture indus-
tries, the United States has
fallen behind, left to export
our technology and invest-
ments overseas.
With a seafood trade
deficit somewhere between
$8 billion and $10 billion,
the United States relies on
imported fish and shellfish
to meet current market
demand, and that reliance
will rise unless we increase
our ability to produce
seafood at home.
We import more than 80
percent of our seafood, and
at least half of that is farm-
raised. Projections show


reduces risk of coronary death by 36
percent. This is significant, as heart
disease is the main cause of death
among Americans. We need to pro-
mote fish consumption, but first we
need to ensure we can meet growing
market demand for seafood.
Aquaculture makes good environ-
mental sense.
It will give Americans more control
of the environmental conditions
under which our seafood is grown. It
can be used in hatcheries to restore
depleted species of fish and shellfish,
and boost catches for commercial

that within the next 20 years in this
country alone, we will need an addi-
tional 2 million metric tons of
seafood per year to meet market
demand. Where will this increased
seafood production come from?
Aquaculture is the answer. -
Aquaculture makes good health
sense.
The mounting medical research on
the benefits of seafood to human
health cannot be ignored. Federal
health experts advise Americans to
eat at least two servings of seafood
per week. Seafood is an excellent
source of protein, is low in fat and
sodium, and contains other vitamins
and minerals that are important for
good health.
A recent study from the Harvard
School of Public Health found that

and sport fishermen. It can
complement wild catches
to meet the growing
demand for seafood.
As the nation's oceans
agency, NOAA's job is to
protect the marine environ-
ment while balancing mul-
tiple uses. We take this
responsibility seriously,
and the proposed legisla-
tion includes strong envi-
ronmental provisions.
Specifically, the act
includes an explicit man-
date for the secretary of
commerce to establish
environmental require-
ments and monitoring pro-
cedures. It also calls for
aquaculture facilities to
abide by all existing water
quality laws and other per-
tinent laws already on the
books.
Aquaculture makes good
homeland security sense. It
will help us secure and
monitor safety of our


seafood supply.
Aquaculture makes good people
sense.
It can generate jobs and revenues
for coastal communities, and offer
fishermen additional business oppor-
tunity between fishing seasons. It can
also provide fresh year-round, reliable
product for retailers and consumers.
If this legislation is embra6ed'by`
Congress and the American people.
the administration will develop a sus-
tainable marine aquaculture program
in the United States that balances the
needs of fishermen, coastal residents
and visitors, seafood consumers, the
environment, and the aquaculture
industry. Citizens will be encouraged
to work closely with us every step of
the way to ensure we develop a
vibrant new industry of which we
can all be proud.

Election date


change likely


Most on council
say they'll OK
voters' choice
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

When the newly seated
Marathon City Council meets
March 27, one of the first
decisions it likely will make
is whether to move the city's
election date to November -
and increase their term
lengths by eight months.
In Tuesday's election, vot-
ers chose to send newcomers
Mike Cinque and Don Vasil to
the two open council seats
now held by Marjie Mearns
and Jeff Pinkus on the five-
member board. Mearns had
sought re-election; Pinkus
didn't run again.
Also on the ballot was a
non-binding referendum ask-
ing voters if future elections
should be moved from March
to November, which would
increase council members'
terms by eight months one
time only.
Nearly 58 percent (977
voters) voted to move the
date, while 42 percent (710
voters) voted to keep the
March date.
Council members had stat-
ed they would likely follow
the voters' decision, and
Mayor Chris Bull said he has
asked city staff to bring such
a resolution to the March 27
meeting, scheduled for 6:30
p.m. at the Marathon
Government Center.
"I fully expect to support
it," Bull said. "I think both
points had their merits,
whether it was in March or
November. Regardless,
democracy will happen. I just
hope this is the right way to
go."
Proponents argued that a
November election would
save the city money every
other year by being coupled
with state and national races,
as well as increase the voter
turnout.
Others say some said city
issues might be lost among


busy ballots.
"I still feel what trumps
everything is that we clearly
in the past have gotten a larg-
er voter turnout," said
Marilyn Tempest, who
brought the referendum to
council. "The fact that some
of the people voting aren't
fully educated on local issues
doesn't bother me."
In the November 2006 gen-
eral election, Marathon voters
were asked to weigh in on
extending term limits (reject-
ed) and choosing at-large vot-
ing over the previous seat-
specific race (approved), and
voter turnout measured 48.2
percent (2,708 votes cast out
of 5,621 registered voters).
Turnout for Tuesday's
election was 32.7 percent
(1,891 voters out of 5,784
registered), and turnout for
the 2006 council election was
even lower at 29.2 percent,
although more voters actually
went to the polls (1,912 vot-
ers out of 6,461 registered).
Councilman Pete
Worthington said he would
also support a date change.
"It would be pretty hard to
ignore that 60 percent vote,"
Worthington said. "It was
clearly a strong message to
move it to November, and we
said we would honor the vot-
ers' decision."
Both councilmen-elect
Cinque and Vasil said they
voted against the change, but
would likely support the
majority decision.
"I felt that, it was very
important we keep local
issues separate from national
and state issues," Vasil said.
"However, I'm not represent-
ing myself and my feelings 6n
the council, I'm representing
the people of this city. And
this was not a close call by
any means."
However, Cinque said
another option could be to
add a binding referendum
(where the result of the vote
becomes law) to an upcoming
November ballot.
"They seem to think
November is more represen-
tative of a vote than in March,
so let's put it on a binding ref-
erendum in November,"
Cinque said. "That will take it
out of the City Council's
hands of giving themselves
the extra eight months."

Attorney: Puto followed rules


Council looks
into how city
renews contracts
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

Marathon City Attorney
Jimmy Morales says City
Manager Mike Puto followed
city policy, although decidedly
vague policy, when he renewed
more than $461,000 in con-
tracts with Gonzalez
Landscaping in July without a
vote by the City Council.
"The policy really is silent
on issues of extensions and
renewals," Morales said. "The
extensions are in the initial
contracts that are approved by
council, and therefore, as long
as the manager extends them
on the same terms and condi-
tions, he's already received
that authority to do so."
However, at least one City
Council member does not
agree with that interpretation,
and expects to discuss and then
vote on clarified rules that
bring the authority to the coun-
cil.
"Everything's got to be
above board and not have any
appearance of either behind the
scenes deals or bubba system,"
said Councilman Pete
Worthington, who initiated the
discussion at the close of
Monday's council meeting.
"I didn't know about this,"
Worthington added. "I only
stumbled across this by
chance."
Worthington said when he
asked why the Gonzalez con-
tracts with the city were
expired on a recent financial
report, staff provided copies of


FLORIDA LIFTS
LIFTS ELEVATORS

contract extensions approved
by Puto.
The contracts include annu-
al landscape and- facilities
maintenance services for the
city events field ($37,440),
Community Park ($199,266),
Sombrero Beach ($42,494),
Rotary Park ($45,001), Coco
Plum Beach ($12,761) and
Jessie Hobbs Park ($11,409),
as well as citywide roadside
mowing ($113,000).
City Finance Director Peter
Rosasco said the original land-
scape contracts were approved
by council in 2002 when
Moyer and Associates was the
contracted city management,
and they were amended and
approved by council in 2003
under then-City Manager Scott
Janke.
The contracts included lan-
guage that "the city" could
extend the contracts for two
one-year terms (for roadside
mowing) and for two two-year
terms (for facilities mainte-
nance).
On Monday, Rosasco told
the council the city manager
had historically renewed these
contracts without council
approval and that these expens-
es have been outlined in the
council-adopted annual budg-
ets.


simple, aptintistic "d
-the Philad2phUi Inqiilrer .


"I've looked at each year
with amounts paid versus
amounts budgeted," Rosasco
said. "In each year, including
the years Mike's been manager,
the contract payments are with-
in the amounts in the adopted
budget."
Morales said most munici-
palities include renewal lan-
guage in contracts and allow an
administrator to execute the
renewal, since prices can
increase greatly when services
are put back out for bid.
Worthington said he has no
problem with the price or the
quality of work done by
Gonzalez, but the council
should review such large con-
tracts once they expire.
"Really, the council should
have three choices at that
point," Worthington said.
"They could renew it, end the
contract and put it our for bid,
or they could decide to let the
Public Works Department take
over some of the responsibili-
ty."
Rosasco said a detailed
report of the city's contract
renewals would be brought to
the next council meeting,
scheduled for 6:30 p.m. March
27 at the Marathon Govern-
ment Center. Morales said he
would bring forward a resolu-
tion clarifying contract renewal
policy.

Money would
be earmarked
for housing
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County
Affordable Housing Task Force is
working to find ways to see that
the local workforce doesn't get
priced out of Keys housing, but
taxpayers might not like the idea
of subsidizing housing for its
trash haulers.
The County Commission
meets Wednesday at 9 a.m. at the
Marathon Government Center-
and on tap is a discussion to
change its contract with Waste
Management Inc.
In what county staff calls an



Summerland Dental
MM 25

William Tycoliz, D.D.S


"extraordinary rate adjustment,"
the company is asking for as
much as a half a million dollars a
year more than it now collects for
trash removal so it can provide a
$500 monthly stipend for its
employees.
In a letter to County
Administrator Tom Willi, Waste
Management's" government
affairs manager, John Albert,
pointed out that the county's 15-
year contract with the company
waived cost-of-living increases
for the first six years.
A rate increase of 80 cents per
ton would allow Waste Manage-
ment to provide the housing
allowance for 12 Keys employ-
ees, according to Albert's letter.
The current rate is $73 per ton.
"As everyone knows, the cost
of living has increased tremen-
dously in the past six years,"
Albert wrote. "The increase in-
housing costs has been especially
dramatic and has made it difficult
to attract new employees. In addi-
tion to this, the recent rise in
insurance rates has made it diffi-
cult for existing employees to stay
in Monroe County."
In addition, the company is
asking for an additional $3.60 per
ton for a fuel-cost adjustment, cit-
ing the rising costs of gas.
According to the county staff
report, the company's contract
already allows for an annual fuel-
cost adjustment.
The county's Public Works
staff recommends denying the


housing-money request.
Also on tap for Wednesday:
A closed session to continue
negotiations toward a settlement
in a sexual harassment complaint
brought against the county.
In October, former county aide
Celeste Bruno filed a complaint
with the U.S. Equal Opportunity
Commission charging Commis-
sioner Sonny McCoy with harass-
ment. Details of the allegations
have not been released.
Approval by the commis-
sion to re-bid a proposed ferry
service for Pigeon Key. During a
March 7 commission workshop,
County Engineer David Koppel
told the commission that none of
five proposals received fit the bill.
The state Department of
Transportation has offered to pay
for the first three years of service
to the island $750,000 while
the old Seven Mile Bridge is
being rehabilitated.
A discussion proposed by
Commissioner George Neugent
to look at possibly rezoning parts
of Big Coppitt Key to make hurri-
-cane recovery more feasible.
According to Neugent, some of
the lots were historically too
small for single-family homes,
yet current zoning does not allow
their replacement with multiplex-
es.
A proposal by McCoy to
create a functioning replica of the
Florida East Coast Railway to
service Pigeon Key. The "self-
supporting national attraction"
would be a joint federal, state and
local government project.

Rentals could be gone from school housing


Monday vote
possible on
Sugarloaf plan
By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com

The Monroe County School
District board is considering
eliminating eight rental units
behind Sugarloaf Elementary
School that were originally
included in a district afford-
able-housing plan.
The School Board, which
met Tuesday at Stanley Switlik
Elementary School in
Marathon, addressed parental
concerns and feedback it
received at public input meet-
ings Feb. 28 and March 6.
Board member Duncan
Mathewson said comments
from-parents seemed to focus
on safety and security, but that
the main issue is density.
"Can we consider eliminat-
ing the eight rental units?" he
asked.
The "professional communi-
ty," as Mathewson calls it,


would be less dense, have more
green space and less traffic if
the board chose to reduce the
housing from 36 units to 28 that
are for purchase only, he said.
Leon Fowler, president of
the United Teachers of Monroe
union, disagreed and said the
project should include rentals
to address the teacher turnover
rate in the short-term. Monroe
County has the highest
turnover rate in the state,
Fowler said.
Board member Debra
Walker asked if eliminating the
rental units would reduce the
cost of the owned units.
Developer Ed Swift, who
put forth the housing plan, said
the owned units would be used
to subsidize the rentals, so
eliminating them would make
money available for other areas
of the project, such as for creat-
ing a buffer between the school
and the housing.
Board member John Dick
asked if it would be possible to
put a field on the area that
would have held the rental


units.
There are playgrounds in the
far back of the school, Swift
said, that could be moved clos-
er to the school to make room
for a "dynamite field," regard-
less of how the board uses the
area designated for housing.
The board should get teach-
ers that want to buy one of the
affordable housing units to sign
a reservation agreement, board
member Steven Pribramsky
said.
"Then we can show parents
that we have a commitment
from our teachers," he said.


Dick said it would help par-
ents to know exactly who is
going to move in.
Superintendent Randy
Acevedo said he got the
impression at the public input
meetings that this is an "over
my dead body" issue for some
parents.
"If I was a teacher at
Sugarloaf School," Walker
said, "I wouldn't feel very good
about myself" after hearing
from parents who don't want
the housing.
Swift encouraged the board
to move forward with the hous-


ing.
There is an 18-month
process to get permitting and to
get ready to build before
ground can be broken, he said.
"If we go into this process,"
he said, "and we meet a hurdle
we cannot overcome, we
absorb all the cost, we put our
tail between our legs and we go
home, at no risk to you."
The board will discuss the
issue further at a Monday
workshop at the administration
complex on Trumbo Road in
Key West before taking a vote
in a meeting later in the day.

Attorney Jeriy Coleman has
taken it on the chin for billing
Monroe County more than a
quarter of a million dollars for his
work trying to help solve the
county's affordable housing cri-
sis, but he says the $250 an hour
is just not enough.
"I have to look at a lot of
things," Coleman said. "I can't
have all my eggs in one basket."
When the County
Commission convenes in regular
session Wednesday at the
Marathon Government Center,
County Attorney Suzanne Hutton
says she will ask for- advice on
whether to renegotiation with
Coleman or move on.
"If we had a growth manage-
ment attorney, which I've been
advertising for," she said, "we
could go forward [without him.]
But we have not had the staffing
to do what he has done."
Coleman's contract started in
2005 when county officials
brought him aboard for his
expertise in the field of affordable
housing. On March 2, he sent a

Coleman says
attorney fee
is too low


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Former Monroe County
Attorney Jim Hendrick said
Friday that support from his
family and friends is helping
him get through his legal prob-
lems.
Monday, U.S. District Court
Judge Shelby Highsmith freed
Hendrick from the Federal
Detention Center in Miami on
$200,000 bond until his May 4
sentencing.
He had been jailed since
Feb. 23, when a jury found him
guilty of conspiracy to obstruct
justice, obstruction of justice
and two counts of witness tam-
pering. He faces up to five
years imprisonment for con-
spiracy and 10 years each for
obstruction and witness tam-
pering.
"The most important part of
my life is my family," Hendrick
told the Keynoter Friday, "and
it's wonderful to be back with
them. My friends have been so
tremendously supportive,
speaking on my behalf at the
bond hearing. It's a buoyant
feeling to have such wonderful
friends."
SHendrick's conviction
resulted from an FBI investiga-
tion into what prosecutors
termed a bribery scheme in the
mid-1990s in which Marathon


letter to Hutton giving notice that
he would terminate his work with
the county after the April 5 meet-
ing of the county's Affordable
Housing Task Force.
Coleman said on Thursday
that he's willing to negotiate a
new contract, but that he needs to
bill at a higher rate.
In fact, Coleman's legal fees
do come in lower than many
other outside firms contracted by
the county.
For instance, the County
Commission will be asked to
approve a bill for nearly
$356,000 in legal fees for Paul,
Hastings, Jenofsky and Walker
for the Galleon Bay land-use
case. That firm billed an average
of $425 hourly for its work on the
takings case.
" "We saved $3 million by tak-
ing it to trial," Assistant County
Attorney Bob Shillinger said.
Attorneys hired in January to
help the county negotiate with


developer Marvin Rappaport
paid almost $83,000 to political
consultant Randal Hilliard.
According to the investiga-
tion, $29,000 of that was fun-
neled to then-County Commis-
sioner Jack London in 1997 in
exchange for expediting the
redevelopment of the former
Hall's Fish Camp.
Hilliard, who secretly
recorded numerous conversa-
tions with Hendrick and testi-
fied against him during the
trial, has been granted immuni-
ty by the federal government.
The U.S. Attorney's Office
had also counted on London's
testimony, but London died in
November. Rappaport was
never charged.
According to Highsmith's
bond order, Hendrick is
required to remain in South
Florida and will be monitored
electronically until sentencing.
He is restricted to staying at
home or work unless the court
approves other activities.
Monday, the Florida
Supreme Court suspended
Hendrick's membership in The
Florida Bar effective April 8.
Hendrick attorney Ed
Shohat has filed a motion for a
new trail charging that the
court was biased against
Hendrick throughout the trial.
No date has been set to hear
that motion.


Keynoter


Teamsters local 769 will bill
$350 an hour and another firm
was approved at $200 per hour
for issues involving sewers and
stormwater.
"We can't afford to lose
Coleman," County Mayor Mario
Di Gennaro said. "He's so knowl-
edgeable and his rate is the lowest
we had."
If the commission decides not
to negotiate, Coleman says he has
left the county a strong frame-
work for creating affordable
housing. His accomplishments
include a ground-breaking 99-
year lease that preserves afford-
ability but that banks can agree
to.
"We have done some impor-
tant things," Coleman said.
"We've focused attention on the
housing issue. We've accom-
plished hiring an affordable hous-
ing coordinator. And there are
other kinds of things like land
purchase agreements and the
lease. These are things that can be
used as templates in the future."

There's no
clear policy on
staff arrests
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

While Monroe County's act-
ing fire chief awaits a March 26
arraignment on a drunk-driving
charge, county officials are strug-
gling with the implications of the
arrest.
"We're looking at it," County
Administrator Tom Willi said.
"Personally, I have an issue with
seeing county employees on the
sheriff's Web site."
James Callahan Jr. was arrest-
ed March 3 after a traffic stop in
Key West. Police say he refused
breath and urine tests and that he
failed field sobriety tests.
"The larger question is, Does
the county have the ability to reg-
ulate after-hours activities? Yes,
if it impacts his job. But then
again, you do have to be found
guilty," Willi said.
It's been nearly a year since
the county's then-social services
director, Louie Latorre, was
arrested on drunk-driving
charges after an accident that put
him in the hospital for days and
critically injured Big Coppitt Key
resident Nadezda Bowman.
Latorre resigned shortly after
the crash. He is out on $50,000
bond and set to stand trial May
21.
Willi says he works with dif-
ferent department managers to
intervene with employees who
may be heading for trouble to
keep them from getting arrested
in the first place.
"The county has assistance
programs," he said. "We're ready
to help them every step of the
way.",
Callahan's arrest occurred


over a weekend. County officials
quickly noted he was not driving
a county vehicle.
State law says that refusing a
breath test results in a year's sus-
pension of your driver's license.
"Part of his job description is
that he has to be able to drive,"
Willi said. "Right now he's work-
ing through the legal system" to
retain his driver's license.
Though the county has no spe-
cific policy on arrests that do not
affect an employee's job, Willi
says contracts for top administra-
tors are often more specific.
"An administrator represents
the government 24 hours a day,"
he said. "Ideologically, we should
be maintaining a higher stan-
dard."
City Manager Julio Avael's
contract, like Willi's, addresses
criminal activity. If the city man-
ager is found guilty of a felony or
a misdemeanor, it can be deemed
a breach of the public trust and
leave him open to immediate ter-
mination.
In the meantime, Willi says
the search for a new county fire
chief continues. Callahan has
been acting since Chief Clark
Martin went on medical leave in
August. Martin has since
resigned.
"We've had the position post-
ed for a couple months," Willi
said. "We're collecting applica-
tions from all over the country,
from Vermont, Nebraska, even a
couple from Florida."
Willi said he isn't sure
whether Callahan has applied for
the position.
"I'm not sure he's even get-
ting any [compensation] for act-
ing," Willi said. "He was the lead
applicant when they hired
Martin, but he turned it down."
Callahan did not return repeat-
ed phone calls for comment.

Key West City Manager Julio
Avael might not be resting as
peacefully as he would like fol-
lowing surgery this week to
replace a knee now that the
mayor is looking to fire him.
During Avael's medical leave,
Mayor Morgan McPherson is
proposing canceling Avael's con-
tract without cause.
Avael, who has headed the
city for close to 11 years, is slat-
ed for retirement at the end of
November. Last week, the City
Commission formed a search
committee, chaired by


McPherson, to find a new city
manager to take over when Avael
retires.
The City Commission con-
venes Tuesday at 6 p.m. at Old
City Hall, and McPherson has
added a proposal to the agenda to
terminate Avael's contract with-
out cause and immediately
appoint an interim city manager.
McPherson said Avael's con-
tract explicitly prohibits talking
with the press about his termina-
tion. However, he said he will
suggest using existing "team
leaders," managers who now
oversee three or four depart-
ments under a team, to fill in
until a new city manager is
selected.
"It was a surprise to see it on
the agenda," Commissioner
Clayton Lopez said. "I would
feel a lot better about it if [Avael]
were here. I'm not opposed to
getting an interim manager, if it
gets to the point where the city
manager agrees with it."
Lopez noted that often in the
business world, -a company will
buy out the remaining time when
a manager is set to retire in order


Private party raises


Sunshine Law questions


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Monroe County Mayor Mario
Di Gennaro doesn't really worry
how things might appear. His
concern, he says, is substance,
that's what counts.
That's why he's not the least
bit worried about inviting his fel-
low county commissioners over
to his house for a luncheon buffet
Wednesday.
"I want to show my apprecia-
tion to all of the county staff," Di
Gennaro said. "Every commis-
sioner is invited. Everybody
works so hard and I want to show
them how much it means to me."
It's a generous gesture, but Di
Gennaro and fellow commission-
er Sonny McCoy are already fac-
ing noncriminal charges of vio-
lating the state's Sunshine Law
governing open'government for a
conversation they had in
September regarding who would
be the next county mayor.
The Sunshine Law prohibits
members of an elected board
from discussing outside of an
advertised meeting anything they
may eventually vote on.
"It's tricky," Commissioner
George Neugent said as he


weighed whether to attend the
lunch. "I want to avoid the
appearance of impropriety. I
would be more comfortable if he
would invite members of the
press."
"It's probably very safe,"
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
said. "It's going to be all of the
commission, all of the staff, the
county attorney, the administra-
tor. I can't imagine anything
being discussed inappropriately.
A get-together like this would be
strictly social."
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton laughed lightly at the con-
cept of the gathering.
"I've already reminded [Di
Gennaro] about the sunshine
laws. I will remind him again."
"It's a small community,"
County Administrator Tom Willi
said. "They're bound to run into
each other. It's not really the act,
but the perception of the act. I've
heard them in social settings
reminding each other that they
must be aware of the sunshine
laws."
The arraignment for Di
Gennaro and McCoy was
rescheduled from March 2 until
April 2 after Judge Wayne Miller
recused himself from the case.


16 Saturday, March 17, 2007


to smooth a transition.
However, this transition may
not be so smooth.
Most agree there has been no
love lost between the mayor and
Avael, and their disagreements
came to a head when McPherson
gave Avael a less-than-glowing
report during his last evaluation.
"I'm taking personalities out
of it," Commissioner Dan
Kolhage said. "I see it as abusing
the situation at a critical time,
i.e., budget, contract negotia-
tions, and all of the other things
like flood claims, the [city's
ongoing external] audit. To fill
an interim [city manager] while
just beginning the search
process, to me that individual
wouldn't even be able to warm
the seat prior to being replaced.
"It doesn't seem to be the
appropriate or prudent thing to
do," he said.
Commissioner Mark Rossi
says he wouldn't be opposed to
the idea, but he, too, wants to
hear what Avael has to say.
"Though he isn't physically at
his desk," Kolhage agreed, "he is
still available via phone. And he
thinks he could be back at work
by next week."

Show goes on for symphony


By JESSICA MACHETTA
jmachetta@keynoter.com

When Arturo Sandoval,
famed trumpet virtuoso, raises
his horn to play at Fort Zachary
Taylor in Key West tonight, it
will be the Phoenix rising out of
the ashes, Key West Symphony
Orchestra Director Sebrina
Maria Alfonso said.
Friday, Alfonso said in an e-
mail that "the TV crews are com-
ing, press from around the coun-
try are coming because they all
want to know how this little
island could get a giant like
Sandoval.... When Mr. Sandoval
saw what the symphony did for
this community and its children
he chose to come."
However, when the sympho-
ny board recently took issue with
the cost associated with getting
him here and the financial state
of the 10-year-old nonprofit, it
was almost curtains for the
Sandoval concert and the sym-
phony itself.
On March 7, the symphony
board met and decided to file
bankruptcy, which would effec-
tively cease all operations. Neil
Birnbaum, executive director,
was fired.
Alfonso, who was not present
at the meeting, said she was


shocked when .the board told her
of its plan.
"I asked for 24 hours," she
said, and then went to the com-
munity for support, which she
got. "People cried when I told
them what this board was going
to do."
Ultimately, board members
not in support of pushing for-
ward agreed to resign and new
members were voted in.
"The new board members
along with the community peo-
ple, we were all in the symphony
office and everybody said what
was on their minds," Alfonso
said. "It was amazing.... It was
very healing."
She also says without the sup-
port of community members and
businesses Jack Niles, Four Star,
Small Chef at Large, Publix,
Fausto's, Waste Management
and others, the Sandoval concert
and the symphony's future
endeavors could not be possible.
Pritam Singh is still sponsoring
the upcoming concert that will be
free to the public.
She said the former board
thought she could just start over,
and "they really truly didn't
understand that would've been
impossible."
Alfonso is perhaps most pas-
sionate about continuing to pro-


viding musical experiences to
local school children, as well as
retaining quality musicians for
the symphony's concerts. Under
Birnbaum's lead, she said there
was some confusion over man-
agement of contracts and expen-
ditures.
"We were all on different
pages," she said. "Sandoval, the
Christmas concert, in my opin-
ion, they weren't well planned
out in having the exact costs and
having sponsors. The mission of
the symphony is to bring the
highest quality of music to the
community and the outreach to
the children, and those are the
things that were being cut."
Nonetheless, she and the cur-
rent board are optimistic about
the future of the symphony and
are ready to put the debacle
behind them.
New board president Robbie
Broivwn echoes Alfonso's senti-
ment that there is no financial
crisis. According to Alfonso,
everything is paid up to current
and the symphony carries no
debt. Brown, who co-owns local
businesses, said the books will
continue to be analyzed.
"The board is there, [the sym-
phony] is stable," she said. It's
like any nonprofit; you're always
looking for funding."


Senators keep rigs away from Keys


McClatchy Tribune

U.S. Sen. Mel Martinez
introduced a bill on Wednesday
that would punish foreign com-


panies and investors who help
Cuba drill for oil and natural
gas near the shores of Key
West.
Martinez, a Republican, and
Sen. Bill Nelson, a Democrat,
are trying to fend off another
bill also introduced Wednesday
that would allow oil rigs as
close as 45 miles from the
Florida coast and ease the U.S.
embargo so that American com-
panies can drill in Cuban
waters.
The Florida senators strong-
ly oppose expanded offshore
drilling for fear it would lead to.
spills that pollute beaches, dam-
age marine life and jeopardize
tourism. They also oppose
Cuban drilling because oil rich-
es would bolster the Fidel
Castro government.
To counter the drilling bill,
Martinez introduced one of his
own that would deny U.S. trav-
el visas to any foreign person or
company who supports Cuba's
oil program. And it would
impose unspecified penalties on
anyone who invests more than
$1 million to develop Cuban oil
and gas resources.
The exchange of legislation


revives an intense debate over
offshore drilling, which
appeared to be settled last year
with passage of an energy bill
that prohibited drilling within
125 miles of Florida shores.
Sens. Larry Craig, R-Idaho,
and Byron Dorgan, D-N.D.,
said,last year's energy bill did
not do enough to conserve fuel
or expand domestic oil and gas
production to reduce U.S.
dependence on foreign supplies.
The bill they filed on
Wednesday calls for tougher
fuel-efficiency standards as
well as domestic production
closer to shore.
While Congress grapples
over energy issues, Cuba has
contracted with companies from
Canada, China and other coun-
tries to explore for oil along its
north coast near the Straits of
Florida.
Craig and Dorgan noted that
drilling 45 miles from shore
would be out of sight from land.
Florida leaders, however, fear
that an oil spill in the Gulf of
Mexico or north of Cuba would
flow with the Gulf Stream along
the Florida Keys and up the
southeast Florida coast.

It's not often a business opens
one day under one name and the
next under another, but that's
exactly what happened at a popu-
lar bar and grill in Key West
recently.
Monty's Raw Bar a small
chain with two locations in
Miami vanished overnight and


is no more. The popular poolside
bar is now called Dante's, com-
plete with local owners, an entire-

Mike Gilvary and Dale
Darmamte closed the deal to pur-
chase Monty's on Feb. 27, shut
down the business for a half day
to retool and reopened as an
entirely new business the follow-
ing afternoon.
"It was unbelievable," said
general manager Nicole
Reynolds. "I don't know how we
did it all, but it went incredibly


smoothly."
Gilvary and Darmamte are
both Key West residents, and
have been friends for years. The
two each have'previous experi-
ence owning and managing bar
and grills in the New York area
and decided last year to pursue
finding a business to purchase
together.
"This is the place where we
did most of our drinking, and
when we found out it was for sale
we decided to give it a shot,"
Gilvary' said. "We could have

Put a spring in your step


Dunkin' Donuts
giving out iced
coffee Mar, 21
Dunkin' Donuts, at its two
Key West locations, is putting
winter "on ice," and will offer
free iced coffee on the first offi-
cial day of spring March 21.
Wednesday, customers can
visit Dunkin' Donuts at 511
Greene St. and 2704 N.
Roosevelt and receive a free
16-ounce cup of iced coffee.
The bakery and coffee chain
reports that, nationwide:


The quantity served
would fill more than 2,300
bathtubs.
The amount of beans used
will be the equivalent weight of
six automobiles.
Dunkin' Donuts will use
more than 13 million ice cubes.
If each cup of iced coffee
served Wednesday, it would be
the equivalent of the height of
175 Sears Towers.
Iced coffee is fast becoming
the next "hot" thing. According
to NPD CREST data,
Americans drank more than 450


million servings of iced coffee
in restaurants in 2006 a 16
percent increase from 2005.
And while iced coffee sales
typically spike during the sum-
mer months, Dunkin' Donuts
has seen rapid growth year-
round, the company says.
Iced coffee is the second
most-frequently-sold product
after hot coffee at Dunkin'
Donuts: The company sold
more than 150 million servings
of iced coffee last year.
Founded in 1950, Dunkin'
Donuts now sells 2.7 million
cups of coffee per day and near-
ly 1 billion cups per year.

have had to continue using their
ingredients and recipes for the
menu."
The menu was the first thing
Gilvary and Darmamte were
interested in changing.
"We've been coming here
since it opened in October of
2003, but we never used to eat
here," Gilvary said. "We've got
an entirely new menu with better
quality food, bigger portions and
a far wider selection."
Those who loved Monty's


happy hour raw bar will be
pleased to find the new owner's
of Dante's are continuing to offer
fresh Keys pink. shrimp, oysters
and stone-crab claws.
Discounts for local residents
and military personnel have also
been retained, hours of operation
are still 11 a.m. to whenever, and
the owners still welcome all
patronizing customers to take a
dip in the ever-popular pool on
site.
Dante's will stage more live
music than Monty's formerly
had, however.
"We're hoping to have live


bands on the weekends to start,
and then maybe see about bring-
ing some in on. weekend nights,
too," Gilvary said.
Prime 951 the dinner-only
steakhouse adjacent to Dante's in
Conch Harbor Marina was
also included in the Monty's sale.
Gilvary said only slight changes
have been made to the restaurant
menu to include some additional
specials, fresh fish and vegetarian
dishes.
"We want to take this place to
the next level, and just make it
even more Key West friendly,"
Gilvary said.

THE FUNDAMENTALS

OF HOME APPRAISAL
A home appraisal is an "opinion of value" conducted by a licensed professional to estimate the
worth of a property. Appraisals are usually ordered by the buyer's lending agency, but can also
be requested by a seller who wants to determine a reasonable asking price of a home.
An appraiser uses three common methods to determine the value of a home. The "Cost
Approach" to value adds the cost of improvements made on the home to the property value of
the land, minus any physical deterioration and functional or economic obsolescence. The
"Comparison Approach" to value compares the subject property (the one being appraised) to the
other nearby properties of similar size and quality that have recently sold. The "Income
Approach" is used for income-producing properties (as opposed to residential properties), and
takes into account the yearly net income an investment property will produce.
Most appraisers of residential homes evaluate the condition and amenities of the property against
other home of comparable size in the neighborhood. If repairs are needed or code violations
exist, they subtract these from the value of the home. All factors are tallied and a final "opinion
of value" is given in the form of a certified appraisal.

time period will ultimately
depend on legal requirements,
which are currently in flux
around the globe.
For instance, members of the
European Union are considering
laws that would require telecom-
munications and Internet com-
panies to store digital data for
periods ranging from six months
to two years. Rep. Lamar Smith,
a Texas Republican, has intro-
duced a similar bill in Congress.
Wong said Google is trying to
strike a balance between retain-
ing data needed by its
researchers, providing more
transparency to users and abid-
ing by legal requirements.
Law enforcement agencies
are pushing for mandatory reten-
tion because the data can some-
times be useful in criminal
investigations.
Public concern about this
issue exploded last year after
AOL published the searches of
about 658,000 of its users on a


public Web site as part of an
effort to share data with
researchers. News organizations
were able to use the searches to
identify individuals.
In August, the San Jose
Mercury News showed how an
Internet search conducted on the
three major search engines -
Google, Microsoft and Yahoo -
could be available to govern-
ment investigators or legal
adversaries. (AOL uses Google's
search technology.)
At the time, all three compa-
nies declined to provide details
about the personal data they
-were storing, including how
long they were retaining it and
how often it was requested by
third parties.
Google said it reversed its
policy after talking with numer-
ous privacy stakeholders,
including U.S. privacy advo-
cates and European regulators.
Technically, what Google
will do is lop off the final eight
bits of an IP address the string
of numbers that identifies a par-
ticular computer to a server. It


will also anonymize cookies -
bits of code that Google places
on its users' computers in order
to identify them to Google's own
servers.
Privacy advocates in the
United States and Europe
praised Google's announcement
as a step in the right direction,
though some said they would
like to see a shorter retention
period followed by complete
erasure of personal information.
"I think if you ask the aver-
age person, 'Do you want people
to know what you type into
Google?' they would mostly
emphatically say no," said Kurt
Opsahl, an attorney with the
Electronic Frontier Foundation.
Peter Norvig, Google's engi-
neering director, said the histori-
cal search data has allowed
Google to continually improve
its search technology to the ben-
efit of its users.
He said the search logs are
closely guarded inside the com-
pany and that only a small num-
ber of people "on a need-to-
know basis" get access to them.

birdy


Dozens of birdwatchers from across the
United States are flocking to the Keys
to catch a glimpse of something new


CARL GOODRICH/For the Miami Herald
This rare bird, a loggerhead kingbird, arrived in Key West last
week. It's drawn birders from throughout the nation to the
Southernmost City.


By CAMMY CLARK
cclark@MiamiHerald.com

A recent unexpected arrival
in the Southernmost City is
creating a buzz around the
country: .It's a loggerhead
kingbird, a Caribbean native
bird watchers say has never
been seen in the United States.
The lone small bird,
believed to have flown the 90-
plus miles from Cuba, has been
making its home for the past
week at Key West's blissful
Fort Zachary Taylor Historic
State Park.
But his peaceful paradise
came to an end late last week
when two retirees, Carl
Goodrich and Ron Hamburger,
spotted him. Within hours,
thanks to the Internet, bird
watchers everywhere were
learning of the incredible find.
Since then, birders from at
least 25 states have trekked to
Key West to take a peek at the
bird with the creamy under-
side, squared-off tail and dry
rattle call.
Tuesday, everywhere the
bird flew a crowd armed with
binoculars, telescopes and
cameras followed.
"Hear him?" longtime bird-
er Paul O'Brien of Maryland
asked. "He's over there. He's a
flycatcher, so he's easy to see
because he likes to sit on dead
snags that allow him to spot
his dragonflies and other
prey.",
O'Brien was one of about


250 birders from around the
country who have come to see
what experts are calling a "first
North American record." More
birders are expected over the
weekend.
"What can I say? It's a dis-
ease," said O'Brien, who
added this was his 101st trip to
chase an unusual bird and the
794th species he has seen in
North America. "Some people
collect coins. I collect birds."
Ken Allie left his home in
Cocoa Beach at 2 a.m. Tuesday
and made a 15-hour round trip
to spend just 30 minutes gaz-
ing at the loggerhead.
"Oh, yeah, it was worth it,"
said Allie, who viewed the bird
through his $1,500 telescope.
"He was easy to find. Just got
out of my car."
Nobody knows how long
the bird will stay. But profes-
sional bird guide Larry
Manfredi of Homestead fears it
could be short-lived after see-
ing two short-tailed hawks fly-
ing overhead.
"A nice loggerhead would
make a good snack," said
Manfredi, who then addressed
the hawks: "Go away and don't
eat the bird. Let everyone see
him first."
The loggerhead's appear-
ance is the third "major rarity"
spotted in Key West in the past
five years, according to bird
guide Mark Hedden, president
of the Florida Keys Audubon
Society.
Five years ago, a Slaty-


backed gull, which breeds in
Alaska and often winters in
Japan, was spotted on Higgs
Beach during Bike Week. "Got
all these Harley-Davidsons
going by it," Hedden said.
In 2004, Goodrich one of
the two who first spotted the
loggerhead kingbird also
was the first to see a green-
backed western spindalis.
"I call Carl the 'Bird
Whisperer,'" Hedden said.
Why did this loggerhead fly
to Key West? Guesses include
getting caught in a weird wind,
wanderlust and even following
a cruise ship.
There have been a handful
of reports of loggerhead king-
birds in the United States,
including one in Miami in
1976.
But pictures disproved three
of the sightings, and there was
not enough documentation for


Miami Herald photo by CAMMY CLARK
the others.
In 2000, the American
Birding Association removed
the loggerhead from its official
list of birds seen in the United
States, which now stands at
939 species.
And in 2003, the Florida
Ornithological Society
removed the loggerhead king-
bird from its state list of
observed birds, which is now
498.
Manfredi, who has seen log-
gerhead kingbirds numerous
times on several Caribbean
islands, said he's 100 percent
certain the little bird sitting on
the dead branch is the real
McCoy.
What will become of Key
West's newest attraction?

Conchs finally see road win


But the offense
for Key West
remains stagnant
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Winning for the first time on
the road this season, the Key West
High School baseball team


defeated Mater Academy, 2-1, in
a District 16-4A game Tuesday in
Miami.
Sophomore second baseman
Frankie Ratcliff drove in both of
the- runs for the Conchs who
ended a three-game losing streak
- and junior pitcher Blayne
Weller went all the way on the
mound.


"The game was very impor-
tant," coach Miguel Menendez
said. "We needed a win bad after
the two losses [against St.
Brendan and Belen Jesuit] we
took last weekend. We played
well defensively and hit well."
A triple by Ratcliff in thp fifth
scored Alfred Rahming and tied
the game, 1-1. Then in the sev-
enth, Ratcliff tripled to deep cen-
ter field to score Raiko Alfonso

Baseball 'factory' chugging again


Little Conch
draws 375 kids
to the diamonds
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

By 6:30 Thursday evening,
the 12-year-old Clayton
Sterling Complex was burst-
ing with SUVs and 4x4 trucks.
Equipment-toting young
players had been unloaded,
and another night of Little
Conch Baseball was about to
begin on four impeccably


groomed fields that form a
sun-dappled jewel at Kennedy
Drive and North Roosevelt
Boulevard.
Cleats scraped on concrete

Twelve-year-old Chris
Garcia arrived carrying his
Stealth bat. "I'm on the Fire
Fighters," he said. "We don't
play tonight but we're having
batting practice."


He is one of 375 players in
the 26-team organization --
50 more than last season and
the most in five years, said
Brian Yoest, president of
Little Conch Baseball.
"We actively pursued kids
to get them playing baseball
again," he said. "We went into
the schools, advertised and
distributed flyers."
The group is on its own

year in Little League.

Coral Shores'
girls undefeated
this season
By KEVIN WADLOW
and DAVID BALL
kwadlpw@keynoter.com

A singles sweep over
Marathon High School this week
gave the Coral Shores boys' ten-
nis team its first win of the sea-
son.
"Our guys posted their first
win, which is overdue," coach
Blake Fry said. "They have
played well all season and
they're putting things together at
the right time."
Coral Shores girls' stayed
undefeated as a team, with a 7-0
win over the Lady Dolphins.
Emmett Walsh, described by
Fry as possibly the best singles
player ever at Coral Shores,
topped Marathon's Alex
Donaldson, 8,2, at the No. 1 spot.
At No. 2, Dylan Moeller (CS)
beat Kerry Wonderlin, 8-2.
No. 3 Keller Fitzpatrick (CS)
edged John Danager, 9-7.
Coral Shores' No. 4 Zack
Stroup won, 8-2, over Alex
Cherniavsky; and at No. 5, Aaron
Holmbraker topped Sean
Quinland, 8-4.
Marathon's No. 1 doubles
team of Donaldson and
Wonderlin scored the Dolphins'

knowing when we'd have to
travel to district tournament
games in Miami and Key
Largo," Yoest said. "It was too
much for the parents to han-
dle."
This year, two all-star teams
from each of the five leagues
- T-Ball, 7-and-8-year-old
Instructional, 9-10, 11-12 and
13-14 will be selected at the
end of the season. After all-
star games are played, travel-
ing teams will be selected to
play tournaments this summer.
On the Robert Santana
Field Thursday evening, the
Anderson Outdoors 7-8 team
- in blue-and-white- pin-
striped uniforms with orange
numbers was introduced by
a PA announcer. The players
lined up, some holding their.
bats.
After the national anthem
(all four fields have an
American, flag), Anderson
promptly scored three runs
against Keys Insurance as
coaches' comments filled the


air: "Good hustle, good job" ...
"Keep the elbow up" ... "Take
your time, bubba, watch the
ball" ... "Way to swing that
bat."
At the 13-14 field, another
bubba was leaning against a
fence beyond first base. He
had a bristly white mustache
and wore a red KW cap, a
plaid shirt and blue jeans held
up by suspenders.
This was Eddie Castro, 66,
a former Key West fire chief
whose grandson, J.P.- Malott,
plays, naturally, for the Fire
Fighters.
"He's a decent ballplayer -
I don't like to brag on him too
much," Castro said. "I couldn't
play at all. It's like a little fac-
tory here. The kids go from
one level to the next and then
they go on to the high school
team. And we've got really
good coaches too, like Freddy
Varela and Michael
Henriquez."
Castro calls a night at the
ball fields a social event.
"It's a habit you get into,"
he said. "You become baseball

to game after game. And if an
umpire chokes on a call, we'll
let him know it.
"The people out here, we all
know each other. You grow up
together, then you become a
doctor or lawyer or fire chief.
That's bubbaism."
A loud burst of shouting
went up from the 11-12 field,
the one that's palm-tree-lined
and has a bay view. The
Shriners' catcher had just
missed hitting a homer, the
ball curving foul in deep left
field. "Nice shot, Tony," a fan
called out from a tiny set of
bleachers.
The kid then singled hard
up the middle.
"We haven't won a game
yet," said Tony Estenoz's
mother, Lydia.
But this would be their
night. The top of the third
inning ended with the
Shriners, headed for a 7-6 vic-
tory, in front of the Lions, 5-2.
"Mom," Tony called over to
the stands, flashing a smile
before putting on his mask.
"Nice, that was nice,
bubba," she said.

record to 4-0, struck out eight
batters, mostly with a sharp-
breaking curve ball. "He was out-
standing," Menendez said.
Except for Ratcliff, the
Conchs, who are 6-4 overall and
2-2 in district, continue to be
mired in a hitting slump. They
have scored seven runs in their
past four games.
"We have faced decent pitch-
ing in this stretch but nothing that
was overpowering," Menendez
said. "We have focused more this
week on hitting in practice and
have tried to simplify things for
these kids. I think we are close,
but we have to overcome the
mental hurdle that is holding us
back."
The Conchs will play host to
Williston at 8 tonight in the finale
of a two-game series.


against a team that should be
nationally ranked, if it isn't
already," Eagle coach Tony
Hammon said.
But it-is the No. 1 ranked 1A
team in Florida, according to the
Florida Sports Writers
Association's poll released
Tuesday.
"We could do some things-
against them, but Brito could do
anything they wanted."
Brito's lineup clouted five
home runs, including a grand
slam.
"One of them was still rising
when it hit the school entrance


ramp" leading to the ICS build-
ing's second story, Hammon said.
"I've seen a lot of big hits here but
nothing like that."
Brito improved to 10-0 with
the win over the Eagles (3-3).
Phillip Izaguirre and starting
pitcher Tim Globus were among
Eagles to slap long drives against
Brito, but saw them run down by
outstanding defensive play.
"We learned a lot," Hammon
said. "We've been playing well,
and if we keep it up, a winning
record is within reach. Frankly,
I'll be disappointed if we don't
finish with a winning record."
Last week, the Eagles rallied
to beat a solid Boca Raton


Christian team, 10-9. The lead
changed hands three times.
"We had decent pitching and
were able to hit the ball,"
Hammon said. "That was the kind
of exciting game you like to play,
and we were able to pull it out."
On March 6, the Eagles strug-
gled early before beating the
Westwood Christian JV, 12-2.
"We came out flat," Hammon
said. "Our guys knew it was a JV
team so it was like they expected
Westwood to roll over."
Island Christian pulled its one
senior starter, Gil Gonzalez, from
the lineup to compete with the
Warrior JV. All the rest of the ICS
starters are underclassmen.

By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com


For the Marathon High School
baseball team, Spring Break -
and a Spring Break tournament
- may be a welcome break from
the regular season, which has
handed the Dolphins three
straight losses.
Marathon (2-5) lost a close
battle at Miami Country Day, 6-5,
Wednesday following a 13-1 loss
to Westminster Christian Tuesday
that ended after five innings.
The Dolphins -were coming
off a heart-breaking 8-5 loss to
rival Coral Shores last week.
On Wednesday, freshman
Thomas Ryan held Country Day
(5-5) to only six hits, while
Marathon tacked on 10, although
runs came slowly for the
Dolphins one in the first, third
and fourth innings and two in the
sixth.
The game was tied 5-5 head-
ing into the bottom of the sixth
when Miami Day's Sam Helpem
(2-for-2) knocked in the game-

Tuesday, Warriors (8-3) pitch-
er Logan Dodds controlled the
Fins at the plate for five hits and
one run, while Chris Garrett got
the loss for Marathon.
Westminster led 5-1 in the
fourth inning, when the Warriors
exploded for eight runs behind
Alex Rodriguez, who finished 3-
for-4 with two RBI.
Marathon hosted Palmer

able for press time) and then trav-

what with the superb pitching and
stellar defense. Michelle
McKenna started at third base for
the first time and Patricia
Bologna was at second.
Heller, meanwhile, kept the
Conchs to six runners while strik-
ing out six.
She gave up four walks and hit
a batter, and allowed another on
base due to an error.
The Lady Fins started their
scoring in the first when Alyssa-
Perry drew a walk. Layne Doyle
moved her to third with a single,
then stole second. Samantha
Rodamer followed with a single
to right, plating both.
Rodamer advanced to second,
and then third, on a passed ball
and wild pitch. Heller reached
safely on an error to the pitcher,
allowing Rodamer to score.
Heller then stole second and
third before Megan McKenna'
was issued a free pass. The next
pitch, she stole second. Patricia
Bologna plated Heller and
advanced McKenna with a field-
ers' choice. McKenna finished
the scoring on a passed ball.
The Lady Conchs kept the
Fins in check until the bottom of
the fourth, when they erupted for
six more runs.
It started with the first batter in
the inning being hit by a pitch,
followed by a walk and then a
perfectly laid bunt single by
Michelle Sardina to load the


bases.
Then Alyssa Perry came to
plate and smashed a double to
right center to clear the bases.
Rodamer and Heller followed
with doubles of their own.-
The last run, by Heller on a
passed ball, put the Fins up by the
final margin of 11-0 in the 10-run

Softball Dolphins looking strong


Coach says
district title
is a possibility
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com


Marathon High School soft-
ball coach Jason Frank sounded
nearly jovial as he talked about
his team's recent loss, 5-3, to
Westminster Christian on
Tuesday.
That's right, a loss.
"That was the best game I've

ever coached with these girls,"
Frank said. "We played our
hearts out and left everything out
on the field. I think we earned a
little respect in that game."
Marathon (6-5) was decimat-
ed, 19-3, by top District 16-2A
team Westminster (10-2) earlier
in the season, and Frank said
Tuesday's effort shows that the
Dolphins can make a legitimate
run at a district title.
"We made the statement we
want to make we are coming

think we are in that position to
win district and make a strong
showing in regionals."
Marathon led 2-0 heading into
the third inning, as the Dolphin
offense kept ahead of Warriors
pitcher Camille Bentio, who
handed Marathon the 19-3 loss.
Megan Gardner again got the
start for Marathon and was
backed up in the field by solid
defense.
But two key errors and a
20-knot wind that knocked down
fly balls for base hits led to
four quick Westminster runs in
the bottom of the third inning.
In the fifth inning,
Westminster brought in ace Kat
Powell to shut the Dolphins
down. However, Marathon's
Shelby Kuck and Sandahl
Stephens continued their hitting
prowess by ripping two doubles
to tack on another run.
"They weren't scared, and


'. -- .: -


they didn't back down," Frank
said.
Marathon followed the loss
with a 9-7 win over a much-
improved Doral Academy
Thursday.
Again, the offense led by
Stephens and Kuck, who was 3-
for-4 and is now batting over
.500, charged up the Fins and
carried over to defense.
A deciding moment came
with Doral threatening to score in
the finial inning. A hit ripped
through the infield, where short-


stop Abi Meyer made what Frank
said was the best play he's seen.
"Somehow, she knocked
down the ball, go up to a seated
position and threw the girl out at
third," Frank said. "If that ball
goes through, that's at least one
run, if not two. I consider that the
game-saving play."
Marathon travels to district-
foe Palmer Trinity at 4 p.m.
Tuesday and then hosts
Westwood Christian at 4 p.m.
Friday.

Pinder scores from length of field


But lacrosse
Hurricanes
still defeated
Keynoter Staff
Coral Shores' boys lacrosse
team did a decent job scoring
with three goals Wednesday
against Ransom Everglades,
but the veteran Raiders did a
better job with 13.
Ransom seldom surrenders
as many as three goals, said
Hurricane coach Mark Hall.
"The defense played a very
good game, all in all," he said.
Jake Pinder scored for
Coral Shores on an end-to-end
goal, running the length of the
field through the' Raider
defense to score.
What makes it unusual is
that Pinder, a junior, is a
Hurricane defender.
Graduated standout Keith
Engelmeyer is the only other


Coral Shores defender to
score, Hall said.
Senior midfielder Mike
Gregory also eluded the
Raider defense on an end-to-
end run to score. Gregory does
an excellent job at the mid-
field face-off following
scores, said associate coach
Erik Bryan.
Benny Spaulding scored
the third goal for Coral
Shores.
In a middle-school club
match at Coral Shores, the
Plantation Key Panthers
blanked the first-year Key
Largo Tornados, 11-0.
Brian Lindback, Ben
Ignacia and Kevin Caldwell
played well for the Panther
defense, with Plantation Key
goalies Devin Morris and
Austin Armstrong sharing the
shutout in the net.
Charles Porter led the
Panthers in scoring.

Brian Lindback (center) and C.J. Lindstrom; Tornadoes are

For the first time in a year
and a half, our family got
off the rock to rock.
The Langerado music festival at
Markham Park in Sunrise was
the destination, the Widespread
Panic show our holy grail.
It was the kids' first hippie
festival (not counting Bonnaroo
2002 when Macy was in utero)
and we took lots of glow sticks,
snacks and paints and brushes
to keep everyone entertained.
Kiderado featured a rock
climbing wall, games and crafts,
and Euro bungee, which I
would've tried too if I wasn't so
prone to motion sickness. If you
haven't seen this new trend in
attractions, it's where a person
is strapped into a seat harness
and a series of long rubber
bands are attached to each side.
The harder you bounce on the
trampoline below, the higher
you are sling-shotted straight up
into the air. A New Orleans
style kids parade, complete with
a brass section playing "When
The Saints Go Marching In"
snaked through the crowds as
costumed kids danced and


played
kazoos.
Mine had a
rain stick.
The
three days
of shows
and Spearhead treated us
to concerts
.. by
body rocking' medlMedeski,
amped up refrain fMartin &
Wood,
Jessica Trey
Machetta Anastasio,
O.A.R.,
Bela Fleck and the Flecktones,
moe., Galactic... Michael Franti
and Spearhead broke into a
body rocking' medley using and we realized
amped up refrain from thea
than we expending theme of "Sesame
Street" "Sunny Day, chasing's
the clouds away..." Thise decided perhaps the
must've been when the kids
started wondering why in the
heck adults are called grown
upsrience for all. My preference the
Sunday, the time change
snuck up on us and we realized
our noon checkout came earlier
than we expected. Knowing the
Panic show was the evening's
closer, we decided perhaps the
kids needed to be exposed to a
little of what the Keys can't
offer: mall culture. Scary expe-
rience for all. My preference the


day before was sipping
mimosas by the hotel pool
while the kids swam and Keith
ran errands.
Waiting in line to get back
into Markham Park, as the one
lane of traffic crept forward, a
series of stickers on the truck in
front of us caught my eye: One
Human Family, Reef Light
Tackle, Conch Republic... sure
enough, we'd found our people.
We parked next to them and
shared some good Keys cama-
raderie, and I made them pose
for a photo (above).
During the Widespread show
later that night, the kids had


glow sticks and pop rocks to
keep them busy. They had
already painted a mural on my
entire left leg. Next thing you
know, Macy's working a glow
stick trade deal with a kid from
a neighboring blanket. Then she
sells two to some guy covered
in tattoos for $5. Maybe that in
utero trip to Bonnaroo does
count after all.
We came home very dirty,
happy and tired the true
signs of a successful getaway.

Theater shows what's behind the music


'Opus' explores
volatile orchestra
of relationships
In the rarified atmosphere of
a successful string quartet,
Michael Hollinger's play at
the Red Barn Theatre,
"Opus," reveals the human
beings who transform the writ-
ten notes into living music.
They do it even as the rela-
tionships among them one to
one and as a group falter,
change and stumble.
George Murphy, looking a
little like Norm from the sitcom
Cheers, Doug Shook, Richard
Grusin, Tom Wahl and Elena
Devers deliver powerful per-
formances that tickle the audi-
ence into chuckling, draw gasps
and sighs, and wring out a few
wrenching poignancies, perhaps
even a chill.
The playwright was trained
as a violinist and is quoted in
many sources describing his
plays as compositions with cor-
responding tempos, rhythms
and dynamics; and using the
characters as instruments.
With such an elegant struc-
ture and robust acting with sen-
sitive direction by Joy
Hawkins, the opening night
audience was awestruck at the
end, taking a moment to collect
themselves and respond.
Prompted by a clever closing
line, you just wanted to think
about it for a bit.
The script sketched dramatic
portraits of each character and
their links to one another and to
the music itself, which played a
role as real as any other.
Laid over the human drama,
however, was the loyalty to the


** sound; the
faith in the
4 instruments
and their
players;
and the
judgments,
criticisms
S and con-
stant evalu-
Sations of
In \ each note
and
Judi Bradford nuance.
Fierce
debates fueled the collaboration.
Ratcheting the drama up a
notch, the group was preparing
for a prestigious televised White
House performance, which
made their rehearsal rooms
volatile with constrained tension
and flamboyant temperament.
The title may sound staid,
but the action includes romance,
heartbreak, painful decisions,
delirious highs and the con-
frontation of the ephemeral
nature of life and performance.
The play runs Tuesday
through Saturday nights through
April 7 at Red Barn.
Also, responding to audi-
ences' requests for more of
"The Exonerated," the Barn
will hold-over its current
Sunday and Monday night play
that shares the true stories of six
innocent survivors of death row,
their jailers and their loved
cnes.

'm the pickup girl. When
they throw their stuff down, I
pick it up," said a woman
who wore a red dress and had a
wild tangle of blonde hair.
It was just before 8 Thursday
night, and a dozen or so.people,
including the pickup girl, were
awaiting the "Backdoor
Burlesque Show" in the back
room of the Senses at Play
Gallery on Duval Street.
Normally a photo studio, the
room had a black ceiling, mis-
matched seats (including folding
chairs and sofas) and a decor
that included a disco ball, a glass
coffee table and an oval-framed
portrait of a gowned baby that
might have been taken in the
early 1900s.
The audience faced a stage
that had not a red velvet curtain
but a series of shower curtains,
from one of which, at 8 sharp,
emerged an energetic woman
who said, "I'm Teetah Dujour."


A man sitting in the front row
immediately said, "My name is
Mario and I'm in love with you.
You're sexy."
Teetah Dujour, whose real
name is Christa Hunt, is the host
and the co-choreographer of the
show put on by the Red Rooster
Burlesque troupe, which has
brought revival burlesque -
popular in a number of major
cities to Key West. Her
boyfriend, Mark Pierson, is the
producer.
"People think we're having a
seedy sex show," Pierson had
said beforehand. "It's really a
happy, fun show, and it's OK for
women to come."
Touching on the true tradition
of burlesque which thrived in
the 1920s with its slapstick com-
edy and strip tease he added,
"We have a lot of hokey skits.
That adds to the charm of
thrown-together theater."
The evening's first hokey skit
involved five girls coming
through the shower curtains cry-
ing. Then, clad in thongs, garters
and pasties, they started to dance
to sultry music. One said,
"Spank me, treat me like a bad
girl."
"We have rules," Teetah
Dujour told the audience mem-
bers, who had paid $25 to get in.
"Lots of noise, lots of laughing,
no touching the girls and tips,
lots of money."
"You have too many clothes
on," Mario said.
In a later phone call, Hunt,
31, who did retro burlesque in
the '90s in New York City and
has a background in exotic

Meet
internationally
known artist






as he unveils passionate
new originals of
light-swept sea and sky


The great pasta caper


T in the
early
evening
gof the
past full
moon I
-.. boarded a
launch in
Key Largo
to ren-
dezvous
with a
mega
Sammie Mays yacht
waiting
offshore where one hell of a
full moon party was in full
swing. As I boarded the vessel,
the captain, dressed in white,
welcomed me and poured me a
glass of Dom Perignon.
It was a cool crisp night;
people were milling about the
deck, reveling under the light
of the moon. Following the
sound of music, I made my
way aft and discovered a gath-
ering. With a sea of people in
front of me I could barely see
the entertainer but I clearly
heard him sing these words to
a reggae melody, "Me and
Cousin Welborn went sailing;
wouldn't you know he got
hooked; so he started making
some phone calls and he
bought him some how to sail
books. We took two women

but next time, bring your own damn rum!


with us, they did not know
how to swim; I say if they fall
over, I leave the saving up to
him. Me and my friend on the
catamaran sailing into the sun,
givin' it hell and trying' to sail
and guzzling Mount Gay
Rum."
Now where have I heard
those lyrics and that raspy
voice? That hypnotic two'and
four off-beat strummed by a
white boy on an acoustic gui-
tar was eerily familiar.
Then it hit me. Cujo was on
board the ship.
The mystical powers of the
full moon seemed to have the
guests under a spell because
women were swooning over
Cujo like he was Julio Iglesias
and the men delivered him rum
drinks one right after the other.
I watched as Cujo con-
sumed mass quantities and his
tip jar overflowed with hun-
dreds.
When Cujo spotted me, he
took a break and propped up a
life-size cardboard cut-out of
himself wearing a red white
and blue pair of Speedos a
throw back of Hustler maga-
zine publisher Larry Flint in a
diaper and popped in a
Buffett.CD.
Buffett was the only man
who could possibly open or
follow such an act, born in the
same hospital, running in the
same circles, talking the same
tropical trash they were
kindred spirits.
I get tickled when Cujo
recalls peeing in Peet's lap,
that's Buffett's mother, who
baby sat him as a demon child.
Cujo introduced me to his
jailbird buddy, Missin' Jack.
With a name like that, I had
to ask the ferret-faced man
how he got it. Like a referee


after a TKO, Cujo grabbed one
of Missin' Jacks hands and
held it up to the moon only
a middle finger and thumb.
It was like something
straight out of Ripley's Believe
It Or Not! the man who
could not stop flipping people
off!
"Yeah, every time I see
Missin' Jack he's missing
another body part so I just call
him Missin' Jack," Cujo said.
They took their place in the
buffet line. It was like a train
wreck. I was so mesmerized
by the one-finger-wonder that
I couldn't stop staring to save
my life.
With a plate in one hand
and tongs in the other, Missin'
Jack was about to go for the
pasta with marinara sauce
when a rude girl cut in line
between us. I'm not sure what
her problem was, it may have
been just a juvenile ploy for
attention. It didn't make a
whole hell of a lot of sense
though, I mean, what was the
hurry? She was on a boat.
I was just getting ready to
rectify the situation when she
reached out and tapped
Missin' Jack on the back.
"A gentleman would allow
a lady to go first," She said
with her nose in the air.
"Oh, is there a lady around
here?" Missin' Jack shot back.
Cujo relinquished the lead
and took the position behind
Missin' Jack and in front of
the witch who didn't know she
was a witch and with and said,
"You know you're absolutely
right, by all means, ladies
first!"
Allowing her to take over
his lead, Missin' Jack held

"A bottle and a half of wine

Outside, during intermission,

"Is that too bizarre or what?"

"You just can't find burlesque

tight.
The order of the buffet line
now went like this Missin'
Jack, the witch with a capital
B, Cujo and lastly, yours truly.
Dressed head to toe in
Tommy Bahama, she topped
off her ensemble with an
expensive cashmere sweater
with huge billowing hobo
pockets. But not only did she
lack a decent personality, she
lacked judge of character as
well. And that, my friend, is a
basic trait necessary for sur-
vival.
. It was plenty enough pay-
back for me, watching her
watch Missin' Jack finger the
food before she got to it.
You know, the universe has
a interesting way of making
sure every human being gets
what they deserve in life, so
while I watched her watching
Missin' Jack fumble the food,
Cujo piled his plate high with
spaghetti and meat sauce. To
the untrained eye, it looked as
if he hadn't eaten in a week.
Cujo took a casual look around
and slid the food off the plate
into the pocket of that lovely
cashmere sweater while she
was in it.
Bursting with pride, -
through a cheering audience,


Cujo made his way back to the
aft deck stage, got knock-
down-loaded and put on one
hell of a performance. Later
that night, down to playing
with only two strings, he took
a second break.
The three of us were kicked
back relaxing in the salon
howling over the pasta-in-the-
pocket caper when who do you
think had the audacity to stop
by? Yep! The witch who didn't
know she was a witch had not
yet discovered the pasta in her
pocket.
"A gentleman would offer a
lady his seat," she said.
The three of us looked at
each other as if we were
secretly being filmed for a seg-
ment of the Funniest Home
Videos.
Hasn't she ever heard -
you don't tug on Superman's
cape; you don't spit into the
wind; you don't pull the mask
off the ole Lone Ranger and
you don't mess around with
Cujo!
Heck, she's probably still
finding all those maraschino
cherry stems he meticulously
snuck into her big fat hairdo.

SoDu you like art? Pierson show nears


New gallery on
Duval features
diverse offerings
L'Attitudes Staff

Te cornerstone of the
upper Duval arts district,
1100 SoDu, takes advan-
tage of a generous display win-
dow to present performance art
at the opening of local artist
Marky Pierson's show of ani-
mated acrylic paintings
Wednesday from 6 to 9 p.m.
Pierson's vivid stylistic paint-
ings are part animation cel, part
Edvard Munch and all about
Key West. We've all been to the
apartment, patted the dog and
smelled the jasmine that is found
in the images.
A DJ provides the sound
track for the "Window on Duval
Street" interactive event that will
enliven the gallery night.
SoDu opened its doors on
New Year's Eve with a new con-
cept for the South Duval arts
district. Six experienced artists
- Judi Bradford, Lainie Davia,
Leslie Kanter, Janis "Spell-my-
name-right" Childs, Fran Decker
and Maritza Cresce have
pooled their skills at 1100 SoDu


Fran Decker's 'Papaya Pizazz' is on display at 1100 Sodu, a
new Key West gallery, alongside a beaded necklace by Jenni


Gerstle.
(for South Duval), a versatile
gallery at the corner of Virginia
and Duval Streets.
Davia is an experienced jew-
eler with a strong background in
shipwreck coins and semi-pre-
cious and precious stones
mounted in sinuous gold
designs.
Bradford brings her large and
colorful atmospheric paintings
and pencil drawings to the walls


as well as her "Cacophony of
Color" ribbon jewelry.
Jewel-tone tropical motifs on
furniture, dinnerware, fabrics
and other objects by Childs are
well-loved items in the keys and
the new location gives her a
chance to experiment with more
items.
Organic natural gemstone and
silver jewelry by Cresce includes
earrings, bracelets and neck-

Life, Wildlife and Afterlife


Photographers
show works in
joint exhibition
Life, Wildlife and Afterlife"
is what results when you
take three individual Key
West photographers who travel
independently but share a pas-
sion for the natural world and for
the diverse cultures and experi-
ences the earth has to offer.
Thursday, from 4 until 8 p.m.,
an opening reception for the
showing by Amy Culver, Gail
Lima and Carol Tedesco takes
place at Gallery 007 at Key West
Fine Art Photography and
Printing on. Shrimp Road, Stock
Island.
This will be the first Keys
public showing of the photogra-
phy of Gail Lima, an artist,
dancer, educator, and civic advo-
cate who has been photograph-
ing since the 1960s.
Her photograph, "Peak
Experience" and her watercolor
painting, "When Lilacs Last in
the Dooryard Bloomed," were
chosen by the Cleveland Institute
of Art's juried show.
"The time has come to bring
forth my artistic creativity after
helping my husband pianist
Franko Richmond with his
career for 18 years," Lima said.


"What has inspired me with this
show is the title that Carol came
up with, which helped me to
focus on my theme, "Life," and
to present 10 photographs from
nature that I love. My signature
image will be 'Gecko Love' and
... a photo of a painting I did
called 'The Pink Conch.' Several
other images in the show were
taken while I had the privilege of
caretaking the Medicine Garden
in Key West."
Culver, whose theme is
"Wildlife," is a 16-year resident
of Key West who recently sold
her restaurant and catering busi-
ness. A world traveler, adventur-
er and humanitarian, her endeav-
ors have twice recently taken her
to Africa to volunteer teaching
women in business as well as
working with several remote
tribes.
Her recent passion for pho-
tography is largely a result of the
guidance of local photographer
Tony Gregory. Her photographs
for this show reflect her trips to
Tanzania, including images of
tribes and animals in their natu-
Sral surroundings.
Tedesco, whose photographs
have appeared in print publica-
tions across the U.S. and-abroad,
. is showing her images related to


"Afterlife."
While working in Ecuador
several years ago, she first laid
eyes on the cemetery known as
La Ciudad Blanca The White
City. The beauty of the monu-
ments and the emotions they
evoked stayed with her and
inspired her to return recently in
order to photograph and share
with others the essence of the
place.
"It is primarily because of
two fabulous Key West women


*Xelemlee


Three artists take on three themes at an upcoming show. Gail
Lima's 'Gecko Love' is a part of the 'Life' facet; Amy Culver's
'Zebras' represent 'Wildlife' and Carol Tedesco's 'Sad Angel I'
brings forth the 'Afterlife.' See more on Thursday.


- in addition to my show-mates
- that I have the pleasure of
participating in this exhibit,"
Tedesco said. "Claudia
Pennington, who first encour-
aged me several years ago to
show my photography publicly
in Key West, and Anne McKee,
whose Artist's Fund helped to
make this presentation of my
work possible."
Champagne will be served at
the reception, as well as nibbles


from Hogfish Bar and Grill.
Following Thursday's recep-
tion, viewings are by appoint-
ment only through March 31. "
How to get there: On Stock
Island, take Cross Street, go left
on 5th Avenue, then right on
Shrimp Road. Gallery 007 is at
7007 Shrimp Road, on the left
behind a tall link fence.
Call 393-6450 for more infor-
mation.
