Hickory House
sits vacant after
county purchase
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

A Stock Island bar and
restaurant owned by Monroe
County since November sits
empty surrounded by a chain-
link fence that encompasses the
slope of land between the build-
ing and water.
The former Hickory House is
one of Monroe's first efforts to
preserve public access to the
waterfront but it's a long
ways from being the public park
"where people can dip their feet
in the water," as County
Commissioner Dixie Spehar
envisions it. .
But it's an example of the
huge problem the county's fac-
ing in trying to keep the water-


front open to the public in the
face of massive redevelopment.
"We're really in the planning
stages right now," County
Administrator Tom Willi said of
the Hickory House. "We've
done a draft site plan ... but it's
hard to say what the time frame
is, considering the other [coun-
ty] facilities under construc-
tion."
On Wednesday, the County
Commission took a look at
another approach to preserving
the waterfront besides purchas-
ing it. This proposal would cre-
ate an ordinance that would use
zoning and incentives to protect
working waterfront.
The concept of no net loss of
working waterfront, Julia
Trevarthen said, is an attempt to
balance pre-sentanon \%ith prop-
ertyi ights.

A plan to round up feral cats

brought out the claws of animal-
rights groups and area cat
owners.
Anne Morkill, director of the
refuge. that's managed by the


U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service,
has been working with local
trap-neuter-release advocates
and Monroe County animal
shelter directors to address con-
cerns about humane treatment
Snd funding concerns.
A cat task force is expected to
arrive on April 1, but the actual
trapping will not begin until
mid- to late April at the earliest,

DOT approves
beautification
of new barrier
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The lifeless gray of metal
and concrete would make a poor
welcome to the Florida Keys,
state transportation officials
have agreed.
So plans for widening the 18-
Mile Stretch ofU.S. 1 will get a
bit of color, the Department of


Transportation announced this
week.
"This was a first," said Upper
Keys activist Hal Heim. "In 13
years of working on Stretch
issues, this is the first the state
agreed with some of us."
Under revised plans, contrac-
tors will add color to the median
barrier of the separated high-
way, at least for the last five or
six miles into Key Largo.

Fishermen
says prices
are up, too
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Catches were not exceptional,
but the lobster season that closes
March 31 provided welcome
relief for the Florida Keys com-
mercial fishing industry.
Higher dockside prices com-
pensated for modest hauls, and a
calm summer did not wreak
havoc on the hundreds of thou-
sands of lobster traps off Keys
shores.
"After [2004 and 2005], a sea-
son with no hurricanes is a good
year," Key Largo fisherman
Ernie Piton said. "Prices were
fair, so I'm happy with it."
Lower Keys fishermen
George Niles agreed the eight-
month season haul "wasn't great.
We never had the cold front that
gave us a big surge afterward, but
it wasn't bad."
"The guys were getting the
highest prices ever," he said.
"That helped."
Wholesale prices have risen
about 50 percent since 2000, said
Tom Matthews, a fishery biolo-
gist with the Florida Fish and


Wildlife Research Institute in
Marathon.
Prices in 2000 sometimes
were below $5 a pound, while
prices this season reached $7 a
pound.
"And the fishermen didn't
have to replace tens of thousands
of traps," Matthews said.
However, he noted that final
projections for the regular season,
running from Aug. 7 through
March 31, indicate a haul below
the long-term average of 6.3 mil-
lion pounds (a typical legal lob-
ster weighs 1 pound).
"Some fishermen have been
saying this has been one of the
best seasons ever, but we're
expecting it to come in around
5.5 million pounds," Matthews
said. "Historically, that's a low
season."
In the late 1990s, catches
reached almost 8 million pounds.
But 5.5 million would be sig-
nificantly above grim seasons
earlier this decade, and particu-
larly the hurricane years.
"There are still a lot of long-
term problems facing the indus-
try," Matthews said. "But it looks
like the catches and lack of
storms should help a lot of people
get their feet back on the
ground."
About 1,200 families in the


Florida Keys rely on lobster for a
significant portion of their
incomes, according to state fig-
ures.

Rule work
A state advisory panel drafting
changes to Florida's lobster laws
met this week in Marathon, and
considered ways to limit mini-
season catches.
"Anything we can do to elim-
inate multiple trips [during the
two-day sport season] would be a
big benefit," said Niles, who
chairs the 13-member panel
appointed by the state Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission.
Some type of tagging system
for the dozen lobster that sport
divers are allowed to take from
Monroe County waters in the
mini-season has garnered overall
support.
One plan. finding favor is
using some type of paper tags, to
be issued when the diver buys his
special mini-season stamp.
"Some of the other ideas are
cost-prohibitive," Niles said.
The advisory panel meets
again in May to finalize its sug-
gestions, which will go to public
comment over the summer.
The Conservation Com-
mission should review the plan
for the first time in September.

Trevarthen, who works for
the South Florida Regional
Planning Council, presented
three possible scenarios for an
eventual law to maintain exist-
ing waterfront access in the
Keys. They range from complete
prohibition of converting com-
mercially zoned waterfront
parcels for any other type of use
to a compromise that would
allow some non-marine devel-
opment.
"This is a nice start," said
Bruce Popham, owner of the
Marathon Boat Yard. Popham
has been pushing thecounty
since 2004 to save the waterfront
community and says he's been
frustrated at how little progress
the county has made.
"If we can spend money on
sinking ships, why don't we
spend it keeping them here?"
In October, the County
Commission approved spending
$2 million toward the sinking of
the USS Vandenberg as an artifi-
cial reef off Key West.
But. rising property prices
aren't the sole reason that mari-
na and boatyard owners are sell-
ing to developers, according to
Peter Bacle, owner of the Stock


Island Lobster Co., the oldest
commercial fish house in the
Keys.
"The cause is not so much the
money that is being offered,"
Bacle-said. "It's the pressures to
reduce commercial fishing."
Bacle said regulations like
the state's effort to reduce the
number of lobster traps end up
reducing the fishing fleet.
Trevarthen noted the pro-
posed ordinance is but a small
part of an overall plan to slow
redevelopment of waterfront
properties and preserve com-
mercial water-based industries.
Another approach has the
county purchasing some water-
front parcels. This is aimed more
at preserving public access to the
water, as is the plan for the
Hickory House. But that plan
requires money.
The Hickory House cost
$3.12 million. The Geiger Key
Marina, also up for considera-
tion, could cost around $5 mil-
lion. The commission also has
looked at a piece of waterfront
on the 18-Mile Stretch.
The County Commission will
take another look at the propos-
als for no net loss during an
April 4 workshop. The time and
location for the workshop have
not yet been established.

Grand plans for assisted-living facility


Group hopes
for longer
lease options
By KAREN QUIST
Keys Sunday editor
kquist@keynoter.com

The Florida Keys Assisted
Care Coalition wants to see an
independent- and assisted-living
facility built in Key West in the
next two to three years.
To accomplish this, Key West
voters would first have to
approve a long-term lease on a 4-
acre piece of city-owned proper-
ty between Southard and Angela
streets that has been set aside for
such a facility.
The coalition says the lease
would be necessary to obtain
financing to build the project, but
the city charter allows for only
20-year leases.
In April, the coalition will ask
the City Commission to add the
lease issue to the October ballot.
The 4-acre parcel, combined
with an adjacent 1.3 acres owned
by Keys Energy Services, would
become home to a privately run
135-unit mix of independent- and
assisted-living housing for elders
of all income levels.
The land would remain in the
hands of the city and the utility,
and the facility's operating costs
and construction debts would be
paid for by "life leases" on some
units and rent on others, plus
monthly fees paid by residents.
Units set aside for low-income
elders would be subsidized by
high-end market-rate units.
Moderate-rate units would also
be included.
Preference would be given to
longtime residents of the Lower
Keys, an area of need the coali-
tion has defined from Marathon
to Key West.
"It would be a place that real-
ly looks like Key West," with a
diverse group of people living
side by side, said Joan Higgs, a
health professional who chairs
the coalition's board with busi-
nessman Ed Swift.
The coalition formed four
years ago with one goal in mind:
To plan a facility where Lower
Keys residents could "age in
place."
With Stock Island's small
Bayshore Nursing Home now the
only local option for residential
living, and the Marathon Manor
facility closed, many elders have
been forced to move to facilities
on the mainland.
"I don't want to have to leave
here when I'm 85," said Higgs,
pointing to the importance of


maintaining connections to
friends and family as people age.
The facility's location, on the
edge of Truman Annex, would
allow residents to stay immersed
in the community.
"Why should we have to
leave?" echoed coalition board
member A.J. "Bookie'
Henriquez, a native Conch and
former Monroe County schools
superintendent.
A facility like the one pro-
posed by the coalition offers eld-
ers a home where they can live
independently while getting
some help with day-to-day needs.
Funded by nearly $200,000 in
private donations and a grant
from the Community Founda-
tion's Marion Stevens Fund, the
coalition and its consultant,
Haskell Community Builders of
Jacksonville, have completed a
two-year, three-phase process to
assess community needs -
which included a series of public
meetings in 2006 and deter-
mine the financial viability of the
project.
With results of that process
showing both need and viability,
the coalition is looking for com-
munity support to proceed. The
board is meeting with civic
groups now and plans to conduct
meetings of its own to outline the
plan for the public and raise
awareness of the need for it.
If the commission agrees to
put the lease issue on the ballot,
and if it's approved by voters in
October, the city would solicit
proposals from companies inter-
ested in taking the project on.
The company would obtain
financing and shepherd the proj-
ect through city and state
approval processes.
"The city could select some-
one to build and operate the com-
munity or they could get some-


FLORIDA LIFTS
LIFTS ELEVATORS
,.


one to build it and someone else
to operate it," Higgs said.
No member of the coalition's
board would be involved in
building or running the project,

Dive tragedy could

have been averted

The worldwide dive community was stunned March 16
week when three divers died because of an ill-fated ven-
ture to the Spiegel Grove shipwreck off Key Largo.
It appears to be the first Florida Keys dive accident ever
to result in three deaths two drowned while still inside
the wreck, one died shortly after he was brought to the
surface.
For the families of the three New Jersey divers, there
can be little solace. It is a tragedy, and we mourn their
loss.
But the Spiegel Grove did not kill them. It is inert
metal. It did not lunge out to swallow them.
The dive team considered themselves expert technical
divers trained fo explore depths and places that sport
divers should not go.
The dark, deep and narrow passages they sought to
explore aboard the Spiegel Grove were never meant to be
part of the 510-foot shipwreck's appeal.
Access to the area, lying in 134-foot depths, beneath
the bottom of the gaping well deck, was intended to be
sealed when the ship was scuttled as a dive attraction and
artificial reef in 2002.
The access point is not easy to find. It either came open
when the ship rolled in 2005, or was pried open by other
risk-taking divers.
The New Jersey group did not go in there by accident.
They planned the dive, leaving spare air tanks near the
entrance. They could not take the tanks with them, it
seems, because the passages they intended to swim are
too narrow for a double-tank setup.
One of four divers survived because his air ran low and
he turned back. The others kept going. They apparently
were on the return trip across the width of the vessel
when air ran out or they lost their way.
They were described by friends as knowledgeable and
skilled in technical diving.
The grim fact remains: They went in, and they did not
come out.
They took a high-risk chance for inexplicable reasons,
and paid the ultimate price. Few, even in the. dive. com-
munity, understand the appeal of crawling through light-
less places within the bowels of the ship.
Tens of thousands of advanced sport divers maybe a
quarter of a million, by one count have safely visited
the Spiegel Grove. They stayed in open areas, and stayed
within the sport's limits.
It can be, to experienced and cautious divers, a thrilling
and relatively easy dive.
But for this tragedy, do not blame the Spiegel Grove.

Village wasting time appealing formula-retail decision


EDITOR:
Thursday in closed executive session, the
Islamorada Village Council discussed whether
to appeal the recent ruling by U.S. District
Court Judge Lawrence King that allows Island
Silver and Spice to recover damages from the
village and limits further enforcement of some
of the provisions of the formula retail ordi-
nance. The decision whether to appeal this rul-
ing is a very important one. This ruling should
not be appealed for a variety of reasons.
Architectural standards can be developed
without appeal. Regulations in progress can be
noted on any permit. Approval of any projects
can be decided on a case-by-case basis, as
well.
There is no flood of formula retail estab-
lishments waiting to enter Islamorada. New
construction is severely limited by both ordi-
nance and geography. Vacant properties in the
village will continue to be a blight on U.S. 1 if
this ruling is appealed.
The award issued by Judge King was not
excessive. The damages sustained by the
Saigers, though, will continue to accrue inter-
est at 11 percent per annum, plus ongoing
attorney fees. The district appellate court in"
Atlanta, where an appeal would be heard,


requires an extensive mediation process -during
which damages and legal expenses would con-
tinue to escalate. The village may be required
to post a significant bond upon appeal.
An appeal by the village of this decision
will likely be opposed by a national legal
organization. Limited expense will be incurred
by the plaintiff until the village loses the
appeal and is forced to face a new ruling based
upon the unconstitutional law.
The confusion of another Islamorada
case in federal court does not rise to the stan-
dard of Judge King's decision. The other case
filed last year is more of a procedural ruling.
Island Silver and Spice (the Saigers) has been
fighting this battle for five years.
The formula retail ordinance was a bad idea
then, and it's a bad idea now. Appealing this
considered decision is a lose-lose situation for
the Saigers, the village and its taxpayers. It is
only a win for attorneys. Enter into negotiation
with all parties now.

Editor's note: The Florida League of Cities
is appealing King's decision on behalf of the
village.


Thank a physician on Doctors' Day


EDITOR:
Friday is an important day in the Keys
community. It is Doctors Day, a time to
acknowledge the doctors in our community
for all they do. We owe them a debt of grati-
tude for their sympathy and compassion in
ministering to the sick and in alleviating
human suffering.
The first Doctors Day observance was
held March 30, 1933, by the Barrow County
Auxiliary in Winder, Ga. The idea of setting
aside a day to honor physicians was con-
ceived by Eudora Brown Almond, wife of
Dr. Charles B. Almond, and the day was cho-
sen to coincide with the anniversary of the
first administration of anesthesia.
On March 30, 1958, the U. S. House of
Representatives adopted a resolution com-
memorating Doctors Day. In 1990, legisla-
tion was introduced in the House and Senate
to establish a National Doctors Day.
Following overwhelming approval by the
Senate and House on Oct. 30, 1990,
President George H.W. Bush signed the reso-
lution designating March 30 as National
Doctors Day.

New condos taxing water
EDITOR:
Regarding water restrictions, you think
it's bad now, wait until all those condo con-
versions come on line.
For the life of me, I can't figure out how
a small motel room with a little bathroom
turns, into a three-bedroom, three-bath, full
kitchen condo. It doesn't make sense. It
should be three motel rooms equals one
condo.
You think our water pressure is low now,
just wait until all those hundreds of condos
come on line. Heaven help us.
Danny Akerman

At Mariners, we are blessed to have won-
derful physicians dedicated to relieving pain,
saving lives and ensuring that patients
receive the best quality care. Not only do our
doctors diagnose, treat and care for their
patients, they are involved in the community.
For example, many of our physicians
donate their time and skill to the Good
Health Clinic, which gives free care to unin-
sured people with low income. They serve as
physicians for school sports teams. They are
members of Rotary and participate in Habitat
for Humanity and Island Dolphin Care.
We are proud of the many Mariners
Hospital doctors who contribute in such a
special way to our community. I encourage
everyone to say thank you to their physicians
for making a difference in people's lives and
wish them a happy Doctors Day on Friday.

Keys Opinion


Saturday, March 24, 2007


EDITOR:
Don't you just love it?
Every time there's even a scent of
local governments being forced to
make do with less of our cash as a
result of a tax decrease proposal,
Chicken Little starts screaming, "The
sky is falling! The sky is falling!"
Now, of course, different words
are used, but the meaning is the
same. The mantra becomes: "We'll
have to cut vital services like police
and fire protection." It never seems
to occur to them that maybe Monroe
County doesn't need to operate a TV
station or subsidize low-income peo-


pie's power bills (been a long time
since anyone froze to death here, I'd
wager).
Maybe they shouldn't be buying
restaurants and sinking ships with
our tax money or paying an afford-
able housing "czar" hundreds of
thousands of dollars. And maybe
Marathon could get along without a
new city hall and a multimillion-dol-
lar airport oopss, too late), or an air-
line subsidy.
Pay attention to what's being said,
but look beyond the words.

This is the Islamorada of a few years back, when the chamber of commerce was
housed in a little red train caboose. But times have changed, and now the business
group is in a regular building.


Let the voters decide how to fix budget Islamorada's not the same place it once was


EDITOR:
[Regarding the possibility of
higher local taxes due to proposed
state tax reform], I would suggest
appointing a person from the Monroe
County staff, preferably someone
who is generally well-respected simi-
lar to County Clerk Danny Kolhage,
to conduct open forum-type meetings
in the Lower, Middle and Upper
Keys.
The purpose of these forums
would be to put forward any and all
ideas no matter what their possibility.
Appoint a committee of average citi-
zens to collate the ideas, circulate
them for a straw vote and then take
the results to the County
Commission.
The question simply would be:
"In order to offset any loss of
operating revenues to the county by
an act of the Legislature to reduce
property taxes and not cause an
increase in local taxes, what type of


income-producing businesses or
industry not currently here would
you favor to supplement our single-
source tourism-related economy?"
As a hypothetical example, give
an industry willing to establish a
branch in the Keys super incentives
on building permits, taxes, etc., to
locate in Monroe County. Those in
the research and development of
electronics would attract not only a
clean business but high-end wage
earners who could afford the cost of
living in Monroe County.
It sure would be an interesting
exercise assuming the County
Commission would agree to accept
the findings or pledge not to raise
local taxes based on any loss of real
estate taxes.
It's time for our elected officials
to get to the point where the rubber
meets the road.

County, state are overspending


EDITOR:
Something is wrong with the pic-
ture created by unwise spending.
The bicycle bridges between mile
markers 60 and 63 are going to get an
expensive face lift. This will provide
additional safe space for the fishing
public, most of whom are not from
the Keys and spend little money when
they get here.
This multimillion-dollar project
will allow more people to spend
overnight and weekends in their tents
and sun covers while they fish and
generally make a mess on the bridges.


Where do the authorities think these
people go when Mother Nature calls,
as there are no toilet facilities?
The state Department of
Transportation and Monroe County
have no money; they have a claim on
our pockets and they are using our
money without much thought. If they
have collected more than they need,
they could refund some of it or
reduce future collections.
Who is watching where and how
our money is being spent?

Foundation won't leave those in need


EDITOR:
I am writing in regard to the
Coldwell Banker Schmitt Charitable
Foundation.
I was recommended to talk to the
people at the foundation to see if there
was any help they could give me.
They have helped me during a period
when I had two surgeries due to a
motorcycle accident.


For three months, I was out of
work and had no income. They
stepped in and made sure that my bills
were paid and made it possible for me
to take care of my two sons.
People in need should know that
there is help out there if you just ask
for it. I am forever grateful to them.
Allen Weeks

EDITOR:
It was with great sadness that I recent-
ly read about the newly announced proj-
ect for the luxury condominium site The
Colony slated to be built on Islamorada.
While many people might argue that
progress and development are the way to
ensuring a successful future for the Keys,
in this instance, I strongly disagree.
Bigger and more expensive most certain-
ly are not always better.
For more than 30 years I have been
fortunate to call Islamorada my home, or
at least a temporary one for about 10
days each December. From the time I
was a small girl living in New York, my
family would journey to the Keys for our
annual fishing vacation.
Initially, we stayed at the old Holiday
Inn and then starting in 1977, the
Islander Motel.
I remember the good old days of a
more laid-back, non-ritzy vacation spot
filled with avid fisherman and friendly
locals. While the remaining locals are
still friendly, many have long since
moved away for lack of affordable hous-
ing in the vicinity and have been
replaced by newer workers who often
need to be bused in from as far away as
Florida City.
What happened to the old Islamorada
that I loved?
It is already evident that Islamorada is
no longer an affordable vacation spot for


most people. While there still are one or
two smaller reasonable motels, I suppose
that one day, they too might go the way
of the bigger, fancier and definitely more
expensive resorts.
Aside from the natural beauty of the
Keys and the great fishing, the draw for
my family, and me personally, was a spe-
cial feeling of a small-town place, a feel-
ing that many places in America cannot
provide anymore.
Isn't it enough to have one or two
fancy, resorts scattered around the Keys?
Wouldn't it be worth the while of the
local chambers of commerce or govern-
ment officials to maintain at least some
semblance of that unique, old-time,
friendly and affordable-to-all feeling?
Or have the Keys become like most of
the rest of America, wallowing in an
always overly materialistic world and out
to make the most bucks despite what
might be the inherently right thing for a
community?
What a shame.
I only hope that when I can no longer
afford to call Islamorada my temporary
holiday home that the happy memories
will sustain me, at least while I search
for what may be the impossible task of
finding a non-glitzy, affordable new
place to provide the same memories for
my own children.

Dad enjoyed his last days


EDITOR:
It is one year this weekend that I
spread my father's ashes, David "Pop"
Bortscheller, at Marker 20. He passed
away early on the morning on Jan. 11,
2006.
As I remember the one last trip to the
ocean with friends and family, there are
some people I would like to remember
as well for making pop have a positive
last couple years.
During my monthly visits, Armand
and Shayne were great hosts to me and
provided pop everything he could have
wished for or needed. I can't forget
Buckey and Indie, either, for keeping
him company during the days; and his
friends Big Mike and Gary B, who were
lifelong and fiercely loyal friends


through thick and thin.
The Bonefish clan deserves special
thanks, especially Don, Patricia Ann,
Steve and Jen for everything, including
a wonderful boat ride for us all. I can't
forget the daily crew at Breeze's for
always providing great company and
conversation.
I want to thank everyone, and please
forgive me for omitting anyone, for
making my pop's last couple of years
the most blessed years of all. He never
wanted to be alone, and all of you
helped fulfill that one last wish for him.
If anyone would like to contact me,

Johnny Martinez wrote in a
march 16 letter to county com-
missioners.
Heim was among Upper Keys
residents who fought plans for
the massive widening now under-
way between Key Largo and
Florida City.
When that campaign did not
succeed, Heim in late 2004
turned his attention to making the
new highway as attractive as pos-
sible.
The median safety barrier to
separate northbound and south-
bound lanes will stand 2 feet, 8
inches high.
"That's a lot of what drivers
will see coming down," he said.
"The cement color is not very
attractive. It gets dirty, dark and
dingy."
Heim appealed for a coloring
addition to the median material
that would make the finished
product green or a more neutral
tan.
"Green is the most common
color here, from the trees around
us to the water that surrounds the
Keys," Heim said. "But picking
the color is a decision for the
community and the County
Commission to make."
Helm reminded'state trans-
portation officials that the federal
government has endorsed "color-
sensitive designs" for infrastruc-
ture for several years.
When the DOT told him that
they needed "community concen-
sus," Heim rounded up the unan-
imous support of the Monroe
County Commission along with
appeals from many local resi-
dents.
"The highway divider [should
be] a -soft green or tan color


mixed with in the concrete so as
to blend with the colors of the
environment," the Island of Key
Largo Federation of Homeowner
Associations wrote in support.
The county commission
agreed on the need for color in
the divider, and called for high-
way fencing that would "not
evoke images of a galvanized,
high-security prison fence."
"The state has done a lot to us,
in terms of the. big bridge and
wide highway," Heim said. "In
this instance, we should recog-
nize that the DOT did something
for us, an improvement on our
behalf."
"Hal deserves all the credit for


this," said highway activist John
Hammerstrom. "When he started
talking to DOT, they didn't want
to hear him. Then he got the
county commission and the com-
munity, and DOT came around."
"We did our homework,"
Helm said. "Now we need some
kind of nice 'Welcome to the
Keys' sign."
No cost estimates were imme-
diately available for the colorful
additions.
"This will be an aesthetic
treatment to enhance the.beauti-
ful natural environment coming
into the Keys," said Patti Jones, a
spokeswoman for the widening
project.

Bashinsky running
for Key West mayor

Big Torch Key resident Sloan
Bashinsky, who ran against
George Neugent in the 2006 race
in District 2 for the Monroe
County Commission, says he's
moving back to Key West to run
for mayor in October.
"So my dreams this morning
say it's official in an unofficial
way," Bashinsky wrote on his
Web blog. "I am a candidate for
mayor of Key West."
Qualifying takes place the
week of August 13. The election
is Oct. 2.
Bashinsky is the third man to
show interest in the seat.
Incumbent Morgan McPherson
says he intends to run for re-elec-
tion, and former Mayor Jimmy
Weekley, whom McPherson
defeated, is also showing interest.
The seat is a two-year term.
Bashinsky ran for mayor in
2003. In 2004 he challenged
County Commissioner Sonny
McCoy as a write-in candidate.

Promoter withdraws concert


.Official says
Founders has
enough events
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com


The promoter of a free concert
intended for Founders Park with-
drew his application in frustration
after Islamorada officials hesitat-
ed to allow the event into the
park.
Frank Rego, vice president of
Cay Clubs, which is not involved
in the concert, said the event
could have brought up to 3,000
people to Islamorada on May 12.
Proceeds from the event were to
go to the Florida Keys Children's
Shelter and the Rotary Student
Scholarship.
Rego is now looking for a
venue somewhere else in the
Keys.
Singer Engelbert Humperdinck
and a band featuring members of
'70s rock groups Traffic and Bob
Seger and the Silver Bullet Band,
among others, are expected to per-
form at the concert, Rego said.
Rudy Perez, a producer of
mainly Latin pop music,, was
expected to plan the entertain-
ment.
But Islamorada officials were
wary of the event for the exact
reason Rego wanted to bring the
concert to Islamorada.
John Sutter, Islamorada's
director of Parks and Recreation,
said at a Thursday meeting that
Founders Park has already had
six large events this year, which
he said is the unwritten limit on


major events at the park.
Sutter said part of his job is to
"maintain the balanced use of
Founders Park," and that it
should not become "an events
center."
"There are many promoters
and groups that would like to
have events at Founders Park," he
said.
The amount of traffic the
event would bring, especially a
week before Islamorada's Island
Fest May 19, which is also held at
the park, concerned village staff
and council members.
"I don't think it's right to
inconvenience the people of
Islamorada weekend after week-
end," Councilman Don
Achenberg said.
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office Capt. Joe Leiter said
police wouldn't be available to
patrol the event because May 12
is the start of Hospitality Expo,
also known as Bartenders' Week,
at Holiday Isle, which requires a
large law-enforcement presence.
Commissioners and staff
bandied about alternative dates
for the concert and a written pol-
icy for how many events could
take place at the amphitheater,
but Rego decided to withdraw his
request.
"It's very obvious this is caus-
ing controversy and putting peo-
ple in a bad light. Respectfully, I
want to withdraw this request. I
very honestly did not realize this
would cause this much of a prob-
lem," he told the four council
members present. Councilwoman
Cathi Hill was not at the meeting.


But he also offered a parting
jab at the nonprofit group formed
to operate the park's amphithe-
ater, Islamorada Community
Entertainment, or ICE, for put-
ting him through so many hurdles
to hold the event.
"ICE basically begged [Cay
Clubs] and we cut them a check
for the $100,000 [needed to finish
the amphitheater in 2006]. They
didn't hesitate to ask and didn't
hesitate to come to Cay Clubs for
the money," Rego said.
Mayor Chris Sante was the
only council member to support
the concert. He said Rego already
compromised to make it a night-
time event instead of all day, and
such an event would bring money
into Islamorada, which depends
on tourism dollars.

Contract severed
The Village Council decided
to sever a contract with architec-
tural firm M.C. Harry, which was
hired to design a municipal com-
plex.
Islamorada has paid the firm
more than $400,000, but con-
struction cost estimates were
much higher than what the vil-
lage wanted to spend on the com-
plex.

Height limits
The Village Council decided
not to vote on caps to the 35-foot
building height limit until two
weeks after a voter referendum,
scheduled for April 15, on the
issue. That meeting is scheduled
for May 24.

Each time a Floridian dies
from carbon monoxide poison-

In the wake of a Key West
tourist's death late last year, the
Legislature may make that hap-
pen.
A House committee pushed
through a proposed law on
Thursday that would require
detectors to be installed in new

More one-way roads coming


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


In an effort to decrease the
number of motorists who repeat-
edly find themselves face to face
with other vehicles' headlights
while driving in Bahama Village,
Key West City Commissioner
Clayton Lopez proposed morph-
ing six of the community's nar-
rower roads into one-way streets.
His resolution passed 5-1
Tuesday, with Commissioner
Jose -Menendez dissenting.
Commissioner Bill Verge was
absent.
Advocates of the resolution
claim the streets not only create
inconvenient situations for driv-
ers, but also put them in danger.
Some of the streets are so narrow,
they said, that a car and moped
cannot comfortably squeeze by
each other.
"Frequently,. we have cars
swerving to avoid a crash
because of another car coming in
the opposite direction," said
Lopez, who also spoke of person-
al accounts in which he witnessed
accidents on some of the road,
such as at Catherine and
Whitehead.
Police Chief Bill Mauldin said
a study done by the Police
Department found that between
March 19, 2006, and March 19,
2007, 18 accidents occurred on
streets intersecting with


Whitehead: seven on Angela, one
on Petronia, three on Olivia, four
on Virginia, one on Truman, one
on Catherine and one on Julia.
While Mauldin admitted it is
impossible to know if these acci-
dents are a result of the streets'
design, he believes the city will
benefit from the changes.
"I think it will certainly con-
tribute to a more orderly pattern
of traffic than what we currently
have," he said.
Lopez's project, which is
spearheaded by City Engineer
Roland Flowers, will redirect
seven different roads all at once.
This is a move that his col-
league, Menendez, doesn't find
appealing.
"Not everyone will adjust that
quickly," he said. "You can't do
this in the spur of the moment."
Menendez said he believes a
better proposal could be a more
gradually one. An example he
gave was changing one street at a
time.
According to Bill Rieck,
superintendent of General
Services for Public Works, noti-
fying the public by putting
memos on the doorways will
probably be the first coarse of
action. After that, appropriate
signs will be put on the streets,
while others will be removed.
Arrows will also be painted in the


streets.
While Lopez said one street at
a time wouldn't work simply
because drivers wishing to go the
opposite direction would have a
difficult time doing so, he did
admit that, initially, the changes
will be confusing for residents.
"I know there will be some
problems with people adjusting,"
Lopez said.
This is a problem the city has
already prepared for, as Mauldin
has already given orders to his
department requiring leniency for
drivers who drive down the oppo-
site direction for the first 30 days
after the roads are changed.
The redirections:
Petronia from Elizabeth to
Simonton.
Catherine from Simonton to
Thomas.
Amelia from Emma to
Duval.
Virginia from Whitehead to
Emma.
Julia from Emma to Duval.
Truman from Whitehead to
Fort.
Angela from Emma to
Simonton.

Former senator books FIRM


Keys group
gets a chapter
in Graham text
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Keys have long been a
grassroots type of community,
sprouting small passionate
groups that get things done. But
most would agree that seldom has
there been a group that, within
weeks of its formation, was
changing minds in Tallahassee.
But Fair Insurance Rates in
Monroe, known as FIRM, had a
large role in bringing about a spe-
cial legislative session that tack-
led the rising cost of windstorm
insurance head-on and brought
down rates in the Keys.
Now former U.S. Sen. Bob
Graham is including FIRM in
"What Every Citizen Needs to
Know to Make Democracy
Respond," a textbook he's writ-
ing about grassroots organiza-
tions due to come out next year.
He said his "interest comes
out of a number of personal expe-
riences where I had serious ques-
tions as to how well students
were prepared."
Graham served in the Senate
from 1987 until 2005, and was
Florida governor from 1979 until
1987. -
"When I read about what


Heather and her friends have
done, it seemed to me an out-
standing example of taking on a
very difficult issue, an issue with
people on the other side who are
well staffed with actuaries and
attorneys to try to resist your
case," Graham told the Keynoter
Friday. "Then the fact they were
able to convince the insurance
commissioner not only that an
increase was not necessary, but
that they deserved a reduction.
That's really amazing."
It's been a year since FIRM's
founding. Key West residents
Cindy DeRocher and Donna
Moody started by comparing
insurance bills with their neigh-
bors.
I When they realized the pri-
mary carrier in the Keys, Citizens
Property Insurance Corp., was
doubling and even tripling its
premiums, they began making
noise and gathering members.
The group garnered the atten-
tion of U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen as well as Kevin
McCarty, the state's top insurance
regulator. Within months, the
Florida Office of Insurance
Regulation denied Citizens two
rate increases.


In August, McCarty held a
public rate hearing in the-Keys,
the first ever. By September,
lower windstorm insurance rates
were the rallying cry in a number
of political campaigns.
Thursday, Carruthers sent
Graham a 14-page overview of
FIRM tracking its successes and
analyzing the growth of the
organization.
Over the past few months,
people who dealt with the organ-
ization from state Rep. Ron
Saunders to former Gov. Jeb
Bush commented on the orga-
nization's professionalism and
efficiency.
"It was clear from the first
hearing with the Office of
Insurance Regulation that mere
emotion alone would not per-
suade the office (or likely any
legislator) to carefully examine
the rates in Monroe County,"
Carruthers wrote in the chapter.
"They were used to citizens com-
plaining about rising premiums.
A compelling case needed to be
made."
Carruthers, the owner of a
Key West guesthouse, has
absorbed enough insurance
knowledge that McCarty has
invited her to sit on a statewide
insurance task force.


FIRM still looking

for insurance answers


Now it wants
info on service
of Citizens
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


If people are still feeling frus-
trated with unpaid or slow claims
on their windstorm damage from
hurricanes, now's the time to
weigh in.
"We've done an e-mail blast
to our membership," said Teri
Johnston, a board member of Fair
Insurance Rates in Monroe. "We
want to know how they feel
about the resolution of their
claim."
The state Office of Insurance
Regulation mandated Citizens
Property Insurance Corp. to work
on its consumer services in a
effort to improve the quasi-gov-
ernmental organization that is
providing more and more of
Florida's windstorm coverage.
The state formed the company
in 2002 to provide last-resort
coverage when other carriers are


not available.
Among the questions FIRM is
asking:
When was your insurance
claim filed, and has it been paid?
+ Was your property inspect-
ed?
+ Did you receive, after the
deductible, enough for repairs?
"I don't think we've seen a
vast difference in consumer rela-
tions" since the August mandate
to improve those relations,
Johnston said.
"Maybe that's an indication
that [Citizens] have resolved the
cases," she said. "This is part of
policyholders' responsibility.
Citizens is asking for accurate
feedback. We can't expect any-
thing out of them if we're not
telling them what's wrong."
FIRM is also seeking funds to
continue advocating for fair
insurance rates.
A day-long fundraiser is slated
for Sunday at 11 a.m. at the
Marathon Moose Lodge, 11601
1st Ave. The jam session is free
and open to the public.

Slate challenges Ritz for co-op board


By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com

The Florida Keys Electric
Cooperative has an election
for a three-year position on
the board for District 1 (Key
Largo) this Tuesday.
Incumbent board President
David Ritz is running for re-
election against Spencer Slate,
owner of Captain Slate's
Atlantis Dive Center, former
president of the Key Largo
Chamber of Commerce and an
unsuccessful candidate for
state House in the fall.
Ritz was elected board
president in June 2005 and
was originally appointed to
the board in 1999.
Voting takes place at the
Key Largo Lion's Den at mile


marker 100 and the Ocean
Reef Academy at 395 S.
Harbor Drive from 7 a.m. to 7
p.m.
Voters must be business
owners, homeowners or
renters with electric bills in
their names, and live from
mile marker 97.7 to the
Miami-Dade County line.
Ritz says he's been
involved in running utilities
for about 25 years and has a
main focus on storm readi-
ness.
"We've put a lot of effort
into making sure our system is
prepared for a hurricane so
when a storm blows through,
we can get the power restored
as quickly as possible," he

spending too much money.
Slate said he would stop
increases in electricity rates,
which he says contribute to
the rising cost of living in the
Keys.
"I can no longer stand on
the sidelines watching our
electric utility rates climb
while my opponent initiates
plans to spend literally tens of
millions of our co-op money
on projects," Slate said in the
letter, "the cost of which will
be passed along to us in--high-
er rates,"
Ritz responded by saying
the co-op has had one rate
increase in 10 years.


Slate was unavailable to
respond to Ritz's comment.
The co-op is a well-man-
aged, well-run organization,
Ritz said, and is always trying
to improve reliability by
increasing the number of pole
inspections, trimming trees
and placing more utilities
underground.
Slate said in the literature
that he assures voters he will
represent everyone equally
and "not just a small group of
well-to-do individuals willing
to spend whatever it takes to
keep my opponent in power."
Ritz said he believes the
co-op has done well in balanc-
ing members' pocketbooks
with increasingly reliable
electricity.


TAX REFORMS

REWARD HOMEOWNERS
The Federal Tax Code has improved the taxpayer's ability to profit by selling a principal
residence. Prior to 1997, the "rollover" allowed taxpayers exemption from capital gains
taxes on the net profit from the sale of a residence if they used profits to purchase a bigger
and better home.

Homeowners over the age of 55 were given a once-in-a-lifetime exclusion from taxes on
profits of up to $125,000 on the sale of their principal residence. Compare those tax breaks
with the new arrangement that replaced both the rollover and the one-time exemption.
The Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 exempts a single homeowner from the obligation to pay
capital gains tax on the profits from the sale of a primary residence of up to $250,000.
Married homeowners who file taxes jointly are allowed to exclude up to $500,000 in prof-
it. Homeowners who have lived in the home two out of the last five years can take this
exemption every two years, a plus for those who are planning to "buy up".
The tax dollars you gain can be used any way you want.

Pigeon Key ferry to get rebid


County: Five
hopefuls' specs
didn't comply
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The owners of two small
businesses who bid on future
ferry service to Pigeon Key
told the County Commission
this week that sending the
request back out for bids is
unfair.
"We're all small business
owners," said Bill Hauck, a
charter captain. "Now it's pub-
lic knowledge what everyone's
bids were; it makes it harder to
compete."
Requests for proposals went
out Feb. 7, drawing five
responses by the Feb. 21 dead-
line. Each response failed in
some way to comply with all
of the county's requirements,
according to County Engineer
David Koppel, who is oversee-
ing the project.
"We would have to waive
policies or procedures for
every one of them to accept
any bid," Koppel told the com-
mission during its March 7
workshop when he first sug-
gested sending the request out
for bid again.
"I'm displeased that this
thing is going to be rebid,"
said Bob Mowder, owner of
Quality Boat Rentals.


Ee[ to] 1 :4 in

"We're giving everyone a
second opportunity to compete
again," county Mayor Mario
Di Gennaro said.
The future of the historic
Middle Keys island, on the
National Register of Historic
Places for its role in housing
workers who constructed
Henry Flagler's Overseas
Railway, has been the source
of numerous rumors since last
fall. That's when the state
Department of Transportation
warned the only road to the
island, the old Seven Mile
Bridge, is on the brink of clo-
sure.
"It seems that a few people
want to move the Turtle
Hospital out onto the island,"
Hauck said, "so that [develop-
ers] can purchase the parcel
next to Tranquility Bay and get
the bid for the ferry service."
The county also rejected
bids by the Pigeon Key
Foundation, Starfish Swim and
Snorkel Inc. and Paradise
Divers Inc.
DOT has committed
$750,000 for three years of
temporary ferry service to the
island while the .old Seven
Mile Bridge is under repair.
Officials estimated in Sept-
ember the old bridge would be
deemed unsafe by the end of
2006, but as yet it remains
open to foot traffic and limited
vehicles.


Deer Refuge holds


two-day workshop


Also during Wednesday's
meeting, the commission
unanimously approved creat-
ing a committee that will look
into establishing a working.
replica train to run between
Marathon and Pigeon Key.
According to the proposal,
introduced by Commissioner
Sonny McCoy, the project
could be expanded to include
other bridges if a Pigeon Key
run proves successful.

idents about the diverse plants
and wildlife of the Lower
Keys pine rocklands, and dis-
cuss opportunities and chal-
lenges for conserving the
habitat.
They are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Wednesday and Thursday at
Lord of the Seas Lutheran
Church on Big Pine Key. A
community forum will follow
the Wednesday session, from 6
to 9 p.m.
In order to address these
challenges, the National Key
SDeer Refuge is hosting a col-


election of speakers to share
their knowledge about the
state of the rocklands, includ-
ing government scientists,
university researchers, conser-
vationists and residents.
Topics will include relation-
ship of Key deer to pine rock-
lands, the status of rockland
butterfly species and their host
plants, distribution of rare
plant species, condition of
freshwater wetlands, effects of
sea-level rise and more.

New mayor chosen Tuesday


By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com


When the Marathon City
Council meets Tuesday night -
the first time since the election of
two new members the first
order of business will be to select
a new mayor to lead the board.
History shows that the likely
frontrunners are Pete Worthington
and Marilyn Tempest, who are the
only two returning council mem-
bers who have not been mayor.
However, current Mayor
Chris Bull has postured himself
to potentially be the only council
member to serve back-to-back
terms as mayor in the city's
seven-year history.
"I've said for some time that I
do have the time, and I'm willing
to put in the effort it takes to be
mayor for this year," Bull said. "I
could provide some stability over
the constant change we've had
over the past five years."
Although largely a ceremonial
position, the mayor does have the
lead in setting meeting agendas
and dictating council and public
discussions. The mayor also has
.the final vote, which could swing
a decision, for ordinances.
The mayor is also the last
council member to speak during
ordinance or resolution discus-
sions a point that both
Worthington and Tempest didn't
favor.
"I think it's important you get
your opinion out there, so there
are some pros and cons," said
Worthington, who served as vice
mayor in 2003 under then-Mayor
Randy Meams.
"I'd support myself doing it,

and if it wasn't me, I would sup-
port Marylyn doing it," he added.
Tempest said she isn't seeking
the position, although she sound-
ed excited at the thought of being
the city's first woman mayor.
"I like the idea that I would
have some control of the agenda,
because I think we can do some
things to move it along," Tempest
said. "The sacrifice is I don't get
to speak first, and sometimes you
can put your voice in on a con-
tentious issue and possibly
change peoples' minds."
Current Vice Mayor Marjie
Mearns would have likely been a
frontrunner for the mayorship,
but she was defeated in the
March 13 election by council-
men-elect Mike Cinque and Don
Vasil. Former Mayor John Bartus
and Joanie Nelson were also on
the ballot.


Councilman Jeff Pinkus chose
not to seek re-election.
Both Cinque and Vasil said
they are not seeking the mayor-
ship but would accept the posi-
tion if granted by the council.
* "Many of the people that sup-
ported me during the election felt
that I would be one of the top
choices," Vasil said. "However, it
would have to be a very, very
overwhelming vote [by the coun-
cil]. I think it's unlikely."
Cinque said all five council
members could effectively serve,
although he would enjoy focus-
ing the council's decision into
clear direction to city staff.
"I'm very big on that," said
Cinque, the top vote-getter in the
election. "Sometimes, the council
comes up with an idea and the
mayor has to put the packaging
around it. I think I could do that
pretty good."


No rate hike

for waste hauler


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

While saying Waste
Management Inc. has been a
"good partner" with the county,
the Monroe County Commission
Wednesday directed Public
Works officials to negotiate with
the company instead of turning
down a requested rate hike.
"Each commissioner should
take [Public Works Director]
Dent [Pierce] to lunch and talk
with him about what a good part-
ner Waste Management has
been," Commissioner George
Neugent said.
The commission, during its
regular monthly meeting in
Marathon, unanimously ap-
proved a motion that would allow
the county to consider the com-
pany's request.
Waste Management's propos-
al includes an increase of 80
cents per ton "tipping fee" to
allow the company to provide
$500 monthly housing allow-
ances for 12 of its Keys employ-
ees. Currently the county pays
$73 per ton. Waste Management
also wants an additional $3.60
per ton for a fuel-cost adjustment.
"The monetary impact of this
request, over the next 10 years, is
about $5 million," Pierce said.
In 2001 the county negotiated
a 15-year contract with Waste
Management. Under that deal,
there would be no cost increase
0for the first five years, and


increases after that period would
be capped at 4 percent, according
to Pierce.
He said the annual cost-of-liv-
ing adjustments in the contract -
after the first five years -
already include fuel adjustments.
"We have a contract," Mayor
Mario Di Gennaro said. "What
are they going to do, ask for more
money again next year? I'm pret-
ty sure a lot of people would like
to bid on this contract."
But John Albert, Waste
Management's government
affairs manager, assured the com-
mission his company is not seek-
ing a new contract.
"We're not about to walk
away from anything," Albert
said.
He explained the contract
allows for "extraordinary
changes" and that the rising cost
of living in the Keys is just such
a change. He also said his com-
pany has helped the county save
money in many ways, including
getting it "a very favorable rate to
get rid of hurricane debris. "I
know it would be in the millions
of dollars savings to the Keys,"
he said.
Pierce, who recommended
against the proposed rate
increase, said it would increase
annual residential rates for those
serviced by Waste Management
from $202 to $305.

Council to see new contract


Options for
104th Street
also on agenda
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
is scheduled to meet in regular
session at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday
at the Marathon Government
Center. Agenda items include:
A resolution accepting
the results of the March 13
council election, which saw
Mike Cinque and Don Vasil
elected in the at-large vote.
They will replace Marjie
Mearns, who did not win re-
election, and Jeff Pinkus, who
chose not to seek re-election.
+ A report by City Manager
Mike Puto on how .he and
other staff members renew
city contracts.
The report comes after
Councilman Pete Worthington
publicly criticized the current
policy interpreted by legal and
finance staff that allows Puto
to renew contracts without a
council vote if the proposed
increase in the contract's price
is less than $25,000.
Last year, Puto renewed
several contracts with
Gonzalez Landscaping that
totaled more than $461,000
without council approval.


However, the council had
approved the initial Gonzalez
contracts that allowed for the
renewals.
Also on the agenda is a res-
olution restating the city's
renewal policy to require a
council vote if the total con-
tract price is more than
$25,000, regardless of how
much the contract price.
increases or decreases.
+ A report by Puto on
options to construct affordable
housing on city-owned proper-
ty near 104th Street.
After the Middle Keys
Community Land Trust failed
to obtain a state grant required
to build 40 units, the council
asked staff to prepare a
request for proposals for a pri-
vate entity to build units.
However, Puto said the city
could take on the responsibili-
ty by hiring contractors, over-
seeing the design and con-
struction and hiring a firm to
manage the property and the
income guidelines. Puto said it
could result in a lower total
price and quicker build time.
A report by Vasil on
changing the start time of
council meetings and possibly
re-ordering the agendas to
allow public input earlier in
the meeting.
A request for administra-


tive relief for Walter
Florimont. Puto said
Florimont is requesting an
extension to a city ordinance
that limits how long residents
affected by Hurricane Wilma
can remain in temporary travel
trailers while repairing their
home.
+ A resolution establishing
a city Historic Preservation
Board, which, according to a
staff report, would recommend
to the City Council properties
to nominate for historic
preservation and recommend
new land development regula-
tions to assist in preserving
historic properties.
+ A resolution creating new
city fees for residents apply-
ing to use the city's new trans-
fer-of-building-rights (TBR)
ordinance.
Staff expects to charge
$300 each for two applications
- one to determine the vested
number of TBRs on a proper-
ty, and a second one for staff
review, approval and issuance
of a permit to transfer the
rights.
+ Second reading of an
ordinance "establishing a uni-
form speed zone through the
city," which staff says will
allow the city to change speed
limits on city streets when
applicable.

Federal funds available


Monroe County has been
awarded $13,686 in federal
funds under the Emergency
Food and Shelter Nationals
Board Program (last year's
award was $16,130).
Now, Keys agencies have a
'chance to get a slice of that

ment Agency and comprising
representatives from the
Salvation Army, American Red
Cross, United Jewish Com-
munities, Catholic Charities
USA, National Council of the
Churches of Christ in the
USA, and the United Way of

Samuel's House, which is tran-
sition housing for women in
distress, decides how to divvy
the money.

zation, must have a voluntary
board.
Monroe County has distrib-
uted the emergency funds pre-
viously to St. Mary's Soup
Kitchen, Keys Area Inter-
denominational Resources,
HigherLove Mission Outreach
and Samuel's House.
These. agencies were
responsible for providing
31,053 meals and the distribu-
tion of bulk food in the Lower
and Middle Keys last year.
Applications should be sent
to Leto, care of Samuel's
House, 1614 Truesdale Court,

at last minute
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Key West City Manager Julio
Avael limped into Old City Hall
with the assistance of a walker
Tuesday, and despite a resolu-
tion from Mayor Morgan
McPherson to fire him and find
an interim manager, Avael left
the meeting remaining in his job
- at least for now.
Avael, who's run the city for
almost 11 years, is slated for
retirement at the end of
November. Two weeks ago, the
City Commission formed a
search committee, chaired by
McPherson, to find a new city
manager. They've since received
more than 100 applications.
McPherson decided to with-
draw Tuesday's resolution due to
'the fact every commissioner was
not available to discuss the mat-
ter. Commissioner Bill Verge
was absent, visiting his ailing
brother in the hospital.
Old City Hall was abnormal-
ly packed with curious and sup-
portive residents. Some, like
Alan King, were ready to speak
in favor of Avael if necessary.
"He's answered to everyone


The Monroe County Com-
mission on Wednesday gave the
contractor constructing the
Freeman Justice Center in Key
West two more weeks to secure
a required bond before
installing a brick-and-stone fin-
ish to the building.
Last month, the commission
tabled a request by County
Attorney Suzanhe Hutton to
terminate the contract with
Pavers and Stone Inc. because
the company was unable to
secure a performance and pay-
ment bond six months after
signing a contract with the
county.
Circuit Court Judge Wayne
Miller encouraged the commis-
sion to fire Pavers and Stone,
saying the delay in completing
the building is hard on the local
judicial system.
"Since I last saw you," he
told the commission, "we had
two incidents of sewer and one
incident of flooding while we
were trying to pick juries."
Miller, just like retired Chief
Judge Richard Payne before
him, has championed comple-
tion of the Freeman Justice
Center, which will have court-
rooms and judges' chambers.
The Whitehead Street build-
ing has been in the works since
the early 1990s. Its original
budget was $4 million; it's now
up to $13 million.
Last month, Miller told the
commission that leaking, walls


and backed-up sewer pipes are
a perpetual problem in the cur-
rent courthouse.
He said Wednesday the
building's conditions are likely
making people sick.
County Engineer David
Koppel warned the commission
in February that firing Pavers
and.Stone could end up costing
the county an extra $1 million
to rebid the job and hire anoth-
er contractor.
Wednesday, however,
Koppel advised hedging the bet
by pursuing a "dual track" by
looking for another contractor
while continuing to negotiate
with Pavers and Stone.
"We've already started that
process informally," Koppel
said. "We've been trying to sal-
vage this because there's a lot
of money at stake."
Hutton warned the commis-
sion last month that the compa-
ny's inability to secure the
bond might indicate financial
instability.
"If they cannot, after all we
have done, comply and com-
mit," Commissioner Dixie
Spehar worried, "and then they
come in and say they can do it,
if they don't do it properly, then
where are we?"
In the meantime, Koppel
said the building is now weath-
erproof, which means that fur-
niture already purchased by the
judicial offices can be stored.

Old faces seek Key West manager slot


Scholl, Cooper
among 111 people
who want the job
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

A couple of names on the
list of 111 applicants for Key
West city manager are likely
to sound familiar.
One is former Naval Air
Station Commanding Officer
Capt. Jim Scholl, a.k.a.
"Dagwood," who lives on
Cudjoe Key and retired from
the military in July 2006 after
nearly three decades in the
service. Last year, he
expressed interest in becoming
the next president of Florida.
Keys Community College.
Another manager hopeful is
Wilmington, N.C. resident
Felix Cooper, who was Key
West city manager before cur-
rent Manager Julio Avael.
Avael is retiring at the end
of November if the City
Commission doesn't fire him
first, as Mayor Morgan
McPherson proposed.
Cooper was 66 when he
abruptly resigned in 1996
because commissioners
expressed disappointment
with negative comments he
made about elected leaders
that appeared in a weekly Key
West newspaper. He had been
set to retire later that year.
Cooper's resume doesn't
indicate any other work expe-
rience following his six-year
tenure in Key West.
Cooper's resignation creat-
ed a flood of more than 159
resumes from hopeful city
managers.
The city faces a similarly
hectic situation now, prompt-
ing a City Commission-
appointed committee compris-
ing professionals in fields
such as education, county gov-
ernment and enforcement to
meet this past Wednesday to
explore options for restrictions
that narrow down the list.
McPherson said in an inter-
view-he wants the applicants
to have "honesty, integrity,
diligence and a vision for all
of the tasks that are at hand."
But after each member of
the search committee recited
their proposed criterion during
the meeting, it became
increasingly clear the final cri-
teria would result in very
stringent requirements. That's
likely to narrow the list fast.
At one point during the dis-
cussion, McPherson said it


seemed "Jesus" himself might
be the sole applicant worthy of
an interview for the position.
Commissioner Dan
Kolhage suggested it would be
wise to specify in the criterion
that the applicant must have
previous experience in a gov-
ernmental leadership position,
which some members agreed
with. Others said that manage-
ment of a business or large
organization would suffice
and that by dismissing each
applicant who doesn't have
management experience in
government, the list would be
whittled to just a handful of
applicants.
That might be necessary to
find the ideal candidate,
according to Kohlage, who-
also discussed a $7 million
transportation system on Stock
Island, threee up-and-coming
contracts with union negotia-
tions and the possibility of
hurricanes the next city man-
ager would have to handle.
There is no room in the posi-
tion, Kolhage said, for on-the-
job training.
Committee member Shirley
Freeman, a former county
commissioner, stressed the
importance of good character,
high energy and a healthy
lifestyle. She even proposed
banning smokers from inter-
viewing.
"I think selecting the next
city manager is about the most
important decision I think the
city can make this year," she
said.
Another concern is the high
cost of living in Key West and
whether it would deter out-of-
state applicants. A salary has
yet to be named for the posi-
tion. Avael makes $142,846.10
a year.
Rough criteria for city man-
ager (a formal list will be cre-
ated this Wednesday):
Experience in strategic
planning and organizational
budgeting responsibility.
Management experience
in a tourism-dependant com-
munity (preferably coastal)
and with special events.
Experience with emer-
gency management prepared-
ness.
Ten years of accumula-
tive senior management expe-
rience in city, county or state
government, or military affili-
ation with at least three years
in the same position.
Experience with military
relations within a community.
A bachelor's degree


required, with a major or skills. Search-committee meetings
minor in finance preferred, as In-depth involvement are at 6 p.m. each Wednesday
is a master's. with civic organizations in a at Old City Hall.
+ Superb interpersonal diverse community.

Cay Clubs also gets A&B Lobster House


By STEVE SANOSKI
Keys Sunday reporter
ssanoski@keynoter.com


It appears Cay Clubs Resorts
and Marinas is looking to buy a
bigger bite of the historic Key
West Bight than it initially
appeared earlier this week.


Along with working toward a
sale of the leases of Turtle Kraals
and Half Shell Raw Bar to Cay
Clubs, Southernmost Restaurant
Group owner Gene Smith con-
firmed the A&B Lobster House
complex is also included in the


deal.
"The A&B, the property and
marina are all included in the
package," Smith said Thursday, a
day after the Key West Bight
Board unanimously approved a
request from Southernmost
Restaurant Group to allow Cay
Clubs to take over the leases of

Our Dearest DJ,
Words cannot express how deeply you are loved and missed. As
we come upon the first anniversary of losing you, we reflect on your life
with us. So short, but so sweet. We never knew your large, quiet soul
was so loved and respected. We were told "not a day goes by that
someone doesn't mention DJ." That made us feel good. Life has been difficult
going on without you and with time we'll get better at it. We miss your
signature smile, your laugh when something cracked you up and those
tight bear hugs you gave. We look at the world and things that are
happening and we say you made it over. We read something that said,
"our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same, but as God
calls us one by one, the chain will link again." This is true for us and
we know we will see you again. We love and miss you dearly.
Your proud parents,

Once again we want to say how much we appreciate all the love and

lives. We wanted to thank you -=r- _

L_ THE HARRIS FAMILY in


Turtle Kraals and Half Shell.
The neighboring restaurant
and bars are owned by the city of
Key West, and have been leased
by Southernmost Restaurant
Group since 2003.
The Key West City
Commission must approve the
lease transfers before the deal is
finalized, and the commission is
expected to take up the issue at its
April 3 meeting.
If approved, Cay Clubs would
pick up the remains of a 20-year
lease with the city that expires in
April 2017.
Located on the Key West
Bight at 700 Front St., the A&B
Lobster House complex also
houses Alonzo's Oyster Bar,
Berlin's Cocktails & Cigars and
White Tarpon, and a wine and
liquor store.
The A&B Lobster House is
not in the section of the bight
owned by the city, and Smith said
the sale of it is therefore not con-
tingent upon approval of the City
Commission.
Thursday, Cay Clubs also
announced a merger of the com-
pany with Delaware-based Key
Hospitality Acquisition Corp..
Pending Securities and
Exchange Commission approval,
the merger is expected to be com-
pleted in the third quarter of
2007, and would effectively take
the combined company, under the
name Cay Clubs Inc., public on a
national stock exchange with
$48.7 million in new capital.


Neither Dave Clark, Cay
Clubs founder and chief execu-
tive officer, nor Frank Rego, vice
president of acquisitions and
development, returned repeated
calls for comment on either the
A&B Lobster House sale or the
merger agreement.
The lease status of Turtle
Kraals and the Half Shell Raw
Bar strictly limits how the proper-
ties can function commercially.
Rego said Wednesday Cay Clubs
has no plans to make significant
changes to the restaurants' staffs
or operations.
"I know there's a lot of rumors
going around among the employ-
ees [of Turtle Kraals and the Half
Shell], but they should know we
don't have any plans to replace
the staff," Rego said. "We don't
change the names of the busi-
nesses we acquire."
Unlike Turtle Kraals and the
Half Shell, the A&B Lobster
House complex has fewer restric-
tions on redevelopment due to it
not being under lease through the
city.
The property is zoned Historic
Residential Commercial Core
District-2, which permits uses of
everything from single-, two- and
multi-family residential dwell-
ings to places of worship and
office space.
Since forming in 2004, the
Clearwater-based company has
amassed 15 luxury properties and
marinas, including nine in the
Keys.

The old adage "let the buyer
beware" has seen a reversal
when it comes to a nationwide
epidemic of mortgage fraud now
making its way into the Keys.
The scam involves an intricate
collaboration between a buyer,
usually out of Miami, along with
a real estate agent, appraiser,
mortgage broker and often
unwittingly, a seller to mark up
the stated asking price of a
home.
Russell Cohen, attorney for
the Florida Keys Board of
Realtors, learned of the plot at
the recent annual National


Association of Realtors
Conference in New Orleans. He
and Tom Wright, attorney for the
Marathon and Lower Keys
Board of Realtors, have been
informing local real estate agen-
cies how to identify the crime
since that time.
Cohen has done two seminars
for the Board of Realtors outlin-
-ing how the scheme unfolds.
The scam constitutes a federal
crime, and indictments have
been handed down across the
country with charges ranging
from wire fraud to conspiracy.
"Russell and I are very con-
cerned that we get the word out


that participation in mortgage
fraud can have bad conse-
quences for sellers and Realtors
and anyone else that participates
in those things," Wright said.
Generally the scheme begins
with a buyer, usually an out-of-
towner, and/or a real estate agent
expressing interest in a home.
"The buyer shows up with
the Realtor and they say 'I'll buy
it but I don't want to give you a
contract for $200,000, I want to
give you a contract for
$400,000"' Cohen said.
"They'll tell you- they want to
have some work done on the
house by a company out of

FRAUD / From 22

Miami and that they don't want
it to show up on a HUD state-
ment."
A HUD-1 statement is a form
used to itemize all charges
involved with a real estate trans-
action. It gives each party a
complete list of .their incoming
and outgoing funds.
The plot thickens as the agent
and buyer get an appraiser
involved to do an inflated
assessment of the property's
value. Finally a mortgage broker
becomes involved when they
attempt to find a lender to com-
plete the transaction.
"The only thing the lender
knows is they've got a house for
sale and a buyer willing to pay
$400,000 on it," Cohen said.
The extra $200,000 comes in
the form of a check made out to
an alleged home improvement
company, often one incorporat-
ed a short time prior to the trans-
action and owned by the buyer's
spouse.
"The makeover never gets
done, the company doesn't
renew its charter the following
year and it goes belly up,"
Cohen said, explaining how the
scheme plays out. "The seller
has his money and the buyer
never even bothers to move into
the house."
Cohen says the Keys are very
susceptible to this kind of fraud,
especially those homes for sale
by owner, given the current real
estate market. "What's happen-


ing is we're getting people down
here who have their houses for
sale and they've been on the
market for awhile because the
market's slow right now," he
explained, "and they're kind of
desperate 'to get rid of their
house. So they are prime tar-
gets."
Cohen says the sellers often
do not comprehend the gravity
of the situation.
"I don't think these sellers
are realizing they're co-conspir-
ators in a federal crime, or actu-
ally in a number of federal
crimes," he said. "People need
to be aware of this, because if
they sign the contract and they
go on with this scheme they are
looking at 20 years in a federal
penitentiary."
Wright has also spoken with
the Realtors Association in
Marathon about the situation
and was recently brought in by
Brian Schmitt, owner of
Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real
Estate Company, to help prepare
a sheet outlining possible indicia
of mortgage fraud.
"In this market, if you get an
offer in excess of the asking
price, somebody's doing some-
thing. Those kinds of deals stick
out like a sore thumb," said
Schmitt. "It's not usually just
one thing, but a series of things.
For instance, you don't get the
sense that the buyer is looking at
the house to live in, they've got
some other motivation. When
those signs aren't there, coupled
with unusual financial arrange-
ments in a contract, something

Mariners promotes
four nurses

Mariners Hospital in
Tavernier has promoted four of
its nurses: Shawn Carpenter to
manager in the Intensive Care
Unit; Sharon Detweiler to man-
ager in surgical services; Debra
Stanger to manager of multispe-
ciality; and Cheryl Van Sipma to
manager of the Emergency
Department.
Carpenter, a Cutler Bay resi-
dent, joined Mariners in 2002 as
an ICU nurse after working at
Mercy Hospital. He earned an
associate's degree in nursing at
Coming College and a bache-
lor's in health services adminis-
tration at Barry University.
Detweiler, who lives in Key
Largo, became an ICU nurse at
Mariners in 2004. Previously,
she worked at Fishermen's
Hospital in Marathon and


Chestnut Hill Hospital near
Philadelphia. She holds an asso-
ciate's in health sciences and is
pursuing a bachelor's at Cham-
berlain College of Nursing.
Stanger, of Tavemier, joined
Mariners in 2002 as medical/
surgical nursing manager, com-
ing to the hospital from LifeLine
Home Health Care in Port
Charlotte. She earned her nurs-
ing diploma at Vancouver
General Hospital, her bachelor's
in nursing from the University
of Victoria and a master's in
health science administration
from the University of St.
Frances.
Van Sipma, also of Key
Largo, came to Mariners in
2005. Prior to coming to the
Keys, she worked for the Illinois
Department of Public Health in
Chicago. She holds a bachelor's
in nursing from Purdue
University.

may not be right."
Schmitt says as a result of all
the recent cases involving this
kind of fraud, he has reviewed
the company's transactions for
the past year. "There was one
that looked unusual, so I con-
tacted the title insurer and-they
were supposed to investigate it,"
he said. "I haven't heard any-
thing since then on that one."
As these transactions become
more prevalent, the ramifica-
tions can extend beyond what
anyone may have thought.
According to a report by
www.CNNMoney.com, the
percentage of loans that entered
a foreclosure process was .54,
the highest ever recorded by the
Mortgage Bankers Association
survey.
Cohen believes there is a cor-
relation between those numbers
and mortgage fraud. "You get a
lot of foreclosures because of
these adjustable rate mortgages
that are now going up because
the interest rates are going up,"
he said, "but I would say this has
got to be a contributing factor."

of a new law passed in January
that allows insurance companies
to get expanded access to backup
coverage from the Florida
Hurricane Catastrophe Fund.
Citizens filed for the rate
decreases Friday at the state
Office of Insurance Regulation.
Homeowners in Citizens'
high-risk account, mostly along
the coasts, will see rates drop by
an average of 14.5 percent,
though rates will vary depending
on the individual property.
Figures for Monroe County show
reductions for Keys policies at
around 9 percent. -
Outside the company's high-
risk area, customers will see
reductions averaging 6.7 percent.


Condominium associations
and other commercial residential
customers will see rate cuts aver-
aging 14.7 percent, the company
said.
Customers should begin see-
ing the reductions beginning
April 15, said Paul Palumbo, the
state-backed company's senior
vice president of underwriting.
Citizens policy holders who
have already renewed their poli-
cies this year received rate
increases when they renewed.
They'll get refunds, Palumbo
said. Those will also be mailed
out starting around April 15.
Policies that don't include
wind coverage won't see reduc-
tions. Business policies also
won't see the reductions because
those policies aren't covered by
the Catastrophe Fund.
Citizens was created by the
state to write policies for people
who couldn't get hurricane cov-
erage from private companies.
State lawmakers overhauled
the property insurance law in
January following two years of
premium increases that compa-
nies said were the result of losses
suffered in the hurricane seasons
of 2004 and 2005.

History being recast


Fort's 19th Century
cannons are being
rehabilitated
Some remarkable history is
getting a 21st Century cleansing
through the National Park
Service.
The agency has begun a multi-
year project to conserve the 10
original cannons at Fort Jefferson
in Dry Tortugas National Park.
The six 15-inch Rodman smooth-
bore cannons and four 10-inch


Parrott rifled cannons are some of
the rarest and most significant
examples of 19th Century sea-
coast artillery in existence.
In April 2004, the South
Florida National Parks Trust
funded a "condition" survey for
the cannons. The work, complet-
ed by Park Service metals con-
servator Gretchen Voeks, exam-
ined the existing condition of the
cannons as well as treatment
options.


Given the isolation of the Dry
Tortugas and the size, weight and
location of the cannons on the
roof structure) at Fort Jefferson, it
was decided that sensitive sand-
blasting corrosion from the can-
non, followed by the application
of a primer and paint to seal out
moisture, was the most reason-

Nesting ends, channel opens


It had been
closed to protect
spoonbill colonies
Frank Key Channel in
Florida Bay reopened to the
public Tuesday with the clos-
ing of roseate spoonbill nest-
ing season.
The closure buoys have
been replaced with no-wake
signs. Carl Ross Key will
remain closed to the public
until further notice.
In t continuing effort to
protect roseate spoonbills in
Florida Bay, Everglades
National Park closed Frank


Key Channel and Carl Ross
Key to public entry during the
winter nesting season begin-
ning Dec. 23. The temporary
closure provided added pro-
tection for two of Florida
Bay's most significant spoon-
bill colonies, officials said.
Spoonbill nesting in Florida
Bay has been threatened by
residual damage from
Hurricane Wilma, human
activity and unnatural preda-
tion.
Hurricane Wilma in
October 2005 tore apart Carl
Ross Key, a popular park
campsite, and pruned the pro-


tective tree cover on nearby
Sandy and Frank keys, home
to two major spoonbill nesting
colonies.
With less protective
foliage, nesting spoonbills can
be easily spooked by passing
boats and other human activi-
ty, prompting .them to leave
their nests and expose their
young to predator crows.
Both Sandy Key and Frank
Key have been permanently
closed to public entry for more
than 20 years to protect these
nesting colonies.
Carl Ross Key remains
closed to public entry pending
additional assessments that are
presently being carried out.

'Emergency restoration'


CANNONS / From 25

Nancy Russell, artifacts curator
for Dry Tortugas, Everglades and
Biscayne national parks.
An "emergency restoration"
plan was put in place, and the
cannons were painted and sealed,
but not for the long term. But now
that long-term program is under-
way.
Conservation treatment of the
first cannon was completed in
February.
Along with the National Parks
Trust money, funding for the proj-
ect is coming from park entrance
fees. To date, funding is available
to treat three of the 10 cannon. -
The Park Service has contract-
ed with Tuckerbrook Conserva-
tion of Lincolnville, Maine, for
the work; conservators Ron
Harvey and Jonathan Taggart will
do it.
In addition to the challenges of
isolation and logistics at Fort
Jefferson, the project is particu-
larly challenging because of the
size and weight of the cannons.
Each Rodman weighs approxi-
mately 25 tons, while each Parrott
weighs about 15 tons.
The original ordnance at Fort
Jefferson included dozens of
flank-defense Howitzers, 90 10-
inch Rodman smoothbore can-
nons, 60 10-inch Columbiads and
various 8-inch Columbiads.
In the early 1870s, an inten-
sive modernization effort was
undertaken. In 1872, the six
Rodman cannons were installed
on the roof at Fort Jefferson.
Fort Jefferson was never com-
pleted as originally designed.
The fort's garrison departed in
1874, and construction halted in
1875. It was subsequently occu-
pied and put to various uses in the
late 19th and early 20th cen-
turies until the establishment of
Fort Jefferson National
Monument in 1935.
By 1907, the original ordnance
(except the 10 remaining
Rodmans and Parrotts) had been
removed. This original ordnance
was sold to scrap dealers, or
donated to towns and cities across
the country for war memorials.
Research has shown that most
of the original flank-defense
Howitzers from Fort Jefferson
were later donated by these com-
munities to World War II scrap-
metal drives.
The loss of original ordnance
from coastal forts is a common
phenomenon; many forts have no
surviving original ordnance and
those that do generally only have
examples of the smaller guns.
The sheer size and weight of
the 15-inch Rodman and 10-inch
Parrott cannon at Fort Jefferson


saved them from being taken off
site or melted down for other pur-
poses.
The Rodman cannon was
invented by Thomas Jackson
Rodman, an Army ordnance offi-
cer who graduated from West
Point in 1837. Rodman's process
involved casting the gun barrel
around a hollow core and cooling
the metal from the inside. The
result was a firm, tight casting
without dangerous air fissures or
cracks. Rodman applied for a
patent in 1847; the U.S. Army
subsequently adopted his process.
The massive 15-inch Rodman
cannon represents the apex of this
smoothbore cannon technology.
These cannons fired a solid shot,
weighing 432 pounds, to a maxi-
mum range of 3 miles. The
Rodman cannons at Fort
Jefferson were cast in 1871, mak-
ing them some of the last
Rodmans to be produced.
The six Rodmans at Fort
Jefferson comprise the largest
collection in existence.
Although Rodman's process
revolutionized coastal arma-
ments, these cannons lost favor,
as the superiority of rifled barrels
became evident against older
forts. Even as Rodman perfected
his process, rifled, artillery was
being cast that made these
smoothbore cannon obsolete.
Robert Parker Parrott, superin-
tendent of the West Point
Foundry, developed a rifled can-
non that fired a pointed projectile
that could travel further and with
greater accuracy, easily penetrat-
ing walls and making coastal forts
indefensible.
The 10-inch Parrott rifled can-
non, which helped revolutionize
warfare, was the largest and rarest
of these successful rifled cannon.
They fired pointed, elongated
projectiles, commonly weighing
250 to 275 pounds, to a maximum
range of almost 5 miles. Only 42
10-inch Parrotts were manufac-
tured; the collection at Fort
Jefferson contains four of the 13
known surviving examples.
The cannon conservation proj-
ect is the first phase of a project
that will improve both the preser-
vation of the cannon and the
interpretation of the nationally
significant Fort Jefferson.
Ultimately, the National Park
Service plans to historically
mount one of each type of cannon
in reproduction carriages as fund-
ing allows, enabling the public to
better understand the fort's defen-
sive system and its role in protect-
ing U.S. national interests in the
19th century.

Service.

Major Parkinson's


study under way


Creatine may
slow worsening
of the disease
Associated Press

U.S. government scientists
want to know if a dietary supple-
ment thought to boost muscles
might boost the brains of
Parkinson's patients.
The National Institutes of
Health began a major study
Thursday to see if creatine might
help preserve the nerve cells that
die off in Parkinson's, and thus
slow the disease's worsening.
The study will enroll more
than 1,700 people with early-
stage Parkinson's using doses
higher than usual with today's
over-the-counter brands, said Dr.
Debra Babcock, a neurologist
with NIH's National Institute of
Neurological Disorders and
Stroke.
Moreover, "creatine is not
completely benign," she said,
cautioning patients not to try the
approach on their own. Kidney
failure and muscle and heart
problems are potential side
effects,
It is the second dietary sup-
plement under NIH scrutiny for
Parkinson's; a study of coen-
zyme Q-10, thought to help


cells' energy production, is under
way.
Parkinson's affects 1.5 mil-
lion people in the United States
and 6 million worldwide. It grad-
ually destroys brain cells that
produce dopamine, a chemical
crucial for the cellular communi-
cation that controls muscle
movement. What results are
increasingly severe tremors,
periodically stiff or frozen limbs,
slow movement and impaired
balance and coordination.
Standard treatments eventual-
ly quit working and do not fight
the disease's underlying cause.
Muscle cells produce crea-
tine, and athletes often swallow
more in hopes of improved per-
formance and muscle bulk.
But because dietary supple-
ments are only loosely regulated,
there is little scientific proof of
how, or even whether, it works.
With Parkinson's, the theory is
that creatine may boost cellular
energy or act as a cell-protecting
antioxidant.
In a pilot study, patients given
a high-dose, drug-like version of
creatine didn't seem to worsen as
much over a year as those given
a dummy drug. The new study
will more stringently track par-
ticipants' functioning for five to
seven years.

Palmetto Panthers


Lacrosse team
gets big win
over top squad
By KEVIN WADLOW

kwadlow@keynoter.com

The Lady Hurricane lacrosse
team kept its footing on a wet
Thursday to topple Palmetto High
School, 10-3, in Tavemier.
Palmetto's Panthers were atop
South Florida's lacrosse District 4
standings before the unexpected
loss.
"Now the rest of the [district]
teams are worried they the. 'l1


have to play Coral Shores in the
playoffs," Cane coach Mark Hall
said. "We're very proud of the
girls."
Coral Shores, ranked seventh
of the 22 girls' high-school
lacrosse programs in Florida,
moved to 4-4 in district play and
4-6 overall.
Forward Brittany Wood has
given the Canes a scoring boost
since returning to the lineup this
week after a leg injury. Wood
scored four goals against the
Panthers, giving her seven in the
last two games.

Marathon looks
unfocused in
district win
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

Marathon High School soft-
ball coach Jason Frank said
he'll take a 9-8 win over
District 16-2A team Palmer
Trinity, even though the
Dolphins didn't deserve it.
"We just kept letting them
hang with us, and it shouldn't
have been that close," said
Frank, who saw his Dolphins
allow five late runs when the
two district opponents met ear-
lier this month in a 12-6
Marathon win.
Marathon (7-5) sits in sec-
ond place in District 16-2A
behind No.1-seeded
Westminster Christian. Frank
said the Dolphins have a defi-
nite shot to beat the Warriors for
a.district title,.if they can.stay


focused.
"Here we are, playing for a
championship and second in the
district, and we could've gave
the game away," Frank said
after Tuesday's win in Miami.
Marathon jumped out to an
early 4-0 lead in the first inning
when Shelby Kuck, Sandahl
Stephens, Alexis Culver and
Abi Meyer reached base and
scored on four straight hits.
Still, Marathon stranded run-
ners at second and third with no
outs.
"We need to get that killer
instinct," Frank said. "We can't
just be happy -with four runs, we
need to put teams away."
Palmer answered with one
run in the first scored on a bad
throw to third. It was one of
only two errors for the
Dolphins.

Hurricanes ahead 5-1 at halftime


LACROSSE / From 39

Darcie Spaulding scored to
give the Hurricanes the 1-0 lead,
and closed with a team-high five
goals. '
By halftime, the Hurricanes
were in command, 5-1. Rachel
SCatanio had a solo goal for the


Canes.
"The trio of AnnaNoe, Kelsey
Garcia and Xotchil Musser domi-
nated the Panthers offense with
huge defensive plays," Hall said.
Goalie Sarah Taylor made 11
saves to preserve what Hall
described as "a huge upset."
Palmetto, with nearly 3,500
students, plays Class 6A in most


sports. Coral Shores is a Class 3A
school, but all lacrosse teams cur-
rently play in one classification.
Earlier this week, the Lady
Canes fell to Cypress Bay, 18-16,
in a rain-soaked contest. Cypress
Bay, at 6-3, took over the lead in
District 4.
Catanio and Spaulding each
had six Coral Shores goals, and


Wood scored three. Lexie Glista
also scored.
Taylor made a dozen saves in
the high-scoring tilt.
Coral Shores finishes the reg-
ular season April 11 at Marjory
Stoneman Douglas High School.
Playoffs begin in late April, with
a home game possible for the
Canes.

Eagles


hunt for


.500

Team eyeing
strong 2nd half
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Island Christian should come
out of Spring Break ready to roll,
Eagle coach Tony Hammon said.
"We should do pretty well in
the remaining games," he said.
"It will be disappointing if we
don't."
The Eagles headed to Miami
Friday, confident of going into
Spring Break with an even 5-5
record. Results from the game at
Horeb Academy were not avail-
-able at press time.
On Tuesday, the Eagles dis-
patched Horeb, 14-1.
"Horeb has improved but
they're still a young team,"
Hammon said. "Not really
younger than we are, but our
guys have been playing together
a lot longer."
Aaron Izaguirre struck out
eight Horeb hitters for the pitch-
ing decision. Tim Globus cleaned
up with a three-strikeout outing.
Island Christian's lineup
banged out 10 hits.
"We hit very well, from top to
bottom," Hammon said. "It was
the kind of game where you just
told the kids to go up and hit the
ball."
At Westwood Christian on
Monday, the Eagles fell to the
Warriors, 10-3.
Island Christian handily beat
Westwood's JV squad, 12-1, ear-
lier this season, so the Warrior
coaches added more varsity
starters to the lineup for the
rematch. "Westwood hit the ball
well," Hammon said.
Island Christian was playing
close against Champagnat last
Friday, scoring in the fourth to
get a 2-2 tie.
Champagnat pulled out to a 5-
2 advantage, then exploded with
a nine-run seventh inning for a
14-2 final.
The Eagles return from spring
break with an April 2 rematch
against Cha;pagnat in Miami.
"We the last one get away
from us," Hammon said. "The
break should do us a lot of good.
The guys can get some rest, and
let some things heal up. We -
should be fine."
The Eagles' next home game
in Islamorada'is 4 p'..' April 5

One-run Conchs and Canes finish strong


loss may


be costly

By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

In a tight three-hour game
befitting a longtime rivalry, the
Monsignor Pace High School
baseball team finally prevailed
over Key West, 2-1, in 11 innings
Tuesday night in Opa-Locka.
With the bases loaded in the
bottom of the llth, Ozney
Guillen hit a slow roller that
shortstop Raiko Alfonso couldn't
quite make a do-or-die play on as
David Vasquez, who had led off
the inning with a double, scored
the winning run.
The Division 16-4A loss was
costly for the Conchs, who fell to
8-5 overall and 2-3 in district.
Pace and Belen each have one
district defeat.
"The loss probably put us into
the No. 2 or No. 3 seed and
means we'll have to play Pace or
Belen in- the first round of the
playoffs," coach Miguel
Menendez said.
The game was a pitching duel
between Pace's Chris Hernandez
and the Conchs' Blayne Weller.
Hernandez struck out 11 batters,
seven of them in a row, before
being relieved by Carlos
Hechevarria in the eighth.
Weller allowed only six hits
before giving way to Daniel
Foltz during an eighth-inning
jam. The Conchs escaped when,
with the bases loaded, Foltz
caught a bunt pop and turned it
into a double play.
Key West tied the game in the
fourth on a home run by Alfonso,
one of his three hits. The Conchs
had other chances but were
thwarted by poor base running
and the inability to bunt.
"It seemed like every time we
had a chance to get something
started, we self-destructed,"
Menendez said.
As the Conchs get ready to
embark on their annual Spring
Break trip to the Tampa area -
the first game is Tuesday night at
Wesley Chapel Menendez is
engaged in introspection.
"I have to do a better job of
preparing our kids mentally," he
said. "We have the pitching to
win a state championship, but we
have to play smarter as a team. I
think the mistakes we made [at
Pace] have to fall on my shoul-
ders because obviously we
weren't as prepared as we
thought we were and it showed in
some crucial moment.'s."r' ,


RECORD / From 39

Potalivo won the boys' dis-
cus with a throw of 109 feet -
"it came off my finger wrong,"
he said and Blankenship,
after an errant toss that had
heads ducking, came back to
nail one 103 feet down the mid-
dle to finish third.
Holubar and teammates
Lauren Arias and Tyler Arias
finished one-two-three but
Holubar was unhappy with her
109. "I'm not having a good
week," she said.
Potalivo and Holubar both
won the shot put (the metal ball
weighs 12 pounds) with tosses
of 41 feet, 1 inch; and 29 feet, 9
inches, respectively.

Coral Shores' baseball
Hurricanes fought Gulliver to a
draw through nearly six innings
Tuesday, but the district-leading
Raiders used one good inning to
pull it out.
Gulliver (12-2) mounted a
five-run, two-out rally in the bot-
tom of the sixth inning to get the
win, 6-1.
"That was as good as we've
looked against Gulliver in a long
time," Hurricane assistant coach
Jorge Bosque said.
Starting pitcher Mike Rentz
was throwing a three-hitter
through 5 2/3 innings before
Gulliver used a bloop single to
stay alive. A home run followed.
Coral Shores (8-5) tied the
game in the top of the second
inning, then played well defen-
sively to keep the defending
District 16-3A champions in a 1-
1 battle for the next three innings
and almost all of the sixth inning.
The Hurricanes were District
16-3A runners-up to Gulliver in
2006.

Ransom Everglades was rained

But the girls'
doubles team
gets a victory
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


It can be demoralizing for a
young tennis team like Key West
High School to lose to Miami pri-
vate-school powerhouse Gulliver
Prep, as the Conchs did
Wednesday. The boys lost, 6-0,
and the girls lost, 5-1.
But to Key West coach Paul
Findlay, a longtime teaching pro
who is trying to build a strong
program, it was a valuable learn-
ing experience.
"Hopefully, we will now know
the difference between being a
just a tennis player and being a
serious tennis player," said
Findlay, who was missing four
players because they were on a
band trip to London.
"I think we've done quite well
this season, and all of the players
are going to be back next year," he
went on. "I just have to get them
motivated in the off-season."
Despite the setbacks
Wednesday, the Conch girls are 6-
2 this season and the boys are 4-4.
Key West lost all its single'
matches against the Raiders, but
that was to be expected.
"Their girls were state champi-


was cruising, 5-0.
Then, the rains came.
"I felt very confident that our
girls were going to have a clean
sweep," coach Mark Hooper
said, "but after the lightning
detectors went off, we had to err
on the side of caution."
The girls' squad (0-9) has
recorded a few individual victo-
ries but has yet to earn a team
win against tough Keys and dis-
trict opponents.
For the boys' team (0-7), No.
1 Alex Donaldson lost 8-1 in a


ons last year, and their boys were
runners-up," Findlay said. "Some
of their top players are freshman;
that shows how strong they are.

pulled out an 8-6 victory.
"They were ahead, 7-3, got

Findlay, a senior who injured
her knee in soccer, fell twice dur-
ing the match, but still the Conch
duo prevailed, Scammacca
bounced back from losing the No.
1 singles match to Gaby Navia, 8-

Key West is off until April 6,
when it will defend its Conch Cup
title against Marathon and Coral

hard-fought match against Juan

top-ranked junior player in
Panama.
"This kid had a side-spin
kick serve, so Alex didn't know
which way it was going. It was
incredible," Hooper said. "Alex
was able to get one game off
him, and to me that is a victo-

the rain, although Hooper said
Wonderlin looked strong.
"Kerry was hitting the ball
long, but I think with enough
time he would've came back to

Pace avenges earlier loss


Lady Conchs
fall to 9-5
on the diamond
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

The Key West High School
softball team had high hopes
Tuesday of completing a regu-
lar-season sweep of archrival
Monsignor Pace, but to the
disappointment of coach
David Gootee, it didn't hap-
pen.
"We came out flat, very
lethargic," Gootee said,
reflecting on a 5-2 loss in a
District 16-4A game at Opa-
Locka.
Aided by several errors,
Pace scored three runs in the-
first inning and two in the
third as it rode the strong
pitching of Brenda Emerson to


avenge an earlier 4-0 loss to
Key West.
"The errors were costly,:'
said Gootee, adding that the
Pace field may have had
something to do with the mis-
cues. "[The field] was horri-
ble. There was a six-inch rise
from the clay to the grass
behind shortstop and second
base. Our girls have been
spoiled by our field."
The Conchs, who dropped
to 9-5 overall and 2-1 in dis-
trict, scored their runs in the
fifth inning on RBI hits by
Jianna Hernandez and Kristen
Babich.
That was about all the
offense Key West could gener-
ate against Emerson, who
helped her own cause with a
two-run triple.
"Their coach told me she
pitched the best game of her


life," Gootee said of Emerson,
who had 10 strikeouts.
Key West sophomore pitch-
er Lindsay Yochum pitched
well .enough to win most
games.
"She pitched great," Gootee
said. "They only got four hits
and one of those was a bloop-
er."
The Conchs are playing
host to a four-game tourna-
ment this weekend, with the
championship game scheduled
for 1:45 p.m. today at the
Back Yard. They'll return to
Miami Tuesday for a district
game at St. Brendan, a team
they defeated at home, 17-0.
