long history in the Keys fighting
for the little gu\s. On Friday he
filed a suit on behalf of the 30

Marathon High School
Principal John Pertner toured
the nel completed class-
room! on the third floor of his
new campus this week, and
although the building is filled
\~ith the latest education tech-


nology, he couldn't help but talk
about the views.
"I hope the kids appreciate
where they get to go to school,"
said Pertner, as he looked over
miles of ocean shoreline visible
from several classrooms and the
third-floor walkway. "Hope-
fully, they can pay attention."
Pertner is hoping his stu-
dents aren't too distracted on
Monday, when they will be
helping teachers move books
and other supplies into the new


classrooms after spending the
last two years in portable class-
rooms.
Portables for vocational
classes and the library will
remain, while Pertner hopes to
remove the unused classroom
portables.
"The students will come into
the gym on Monday morning
and get their new schedules,"
Pertner said. "They are going to
have to help us all these first few
days while we get settled. This

Card Sound
work will

By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A planned lane closure for
bridge repairs on Card Sound
Road could slow for traffic for
two months, beginning April 16.
Many commuters and travel-
ers have been using the Card
Sound route as an alternate to
U.S. 1 because of nighttime lane
closures for reconstruction on
the main highway.
"That is something that is
being considered," said Patti
Jones, a spokeswoman for an
engineering firm working on
both U.S. 1 and Card Sound.
"We plan to try to coordinate
closely between Card Sound and
the 18-Mile Stretch work."
The southbound lane of Card
Sound Road over Saunders
Creek Bridge closes April 16 for
a project to replace a section of
bridge decking.
The lane is expected to
remain closed around the clock
until June 15.
Saunders Creek Bridge is the

Hill, Achenberg
indignant over
proposal language
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

A draft agreement from Key
Largo's sewer authority regard-
ing sharing wastewater responsi-
bilities with Islamorada -has
angered some village officials
and could further delay the possi-
bility of potential cooperation
between the two entities.
Stoking the ire of two
Islamorada Village Council
members in particular is the ref-
erence throughout the agreement
to Islamorada as "customer," and
the addition that Islamorada
could have no representation on
the Key Largo Wastewater
Treatment District's board of
commissioners.
District officials "have a con-
descending and arrogant attitude
that should be an affront to every
resident in Islamorada," Village
Councilman Don Achenberg said
in a phone interview.
"This is no way to start an
agreement," he said.
Councilwoman Cathi Hill had
a similar reaction to the proposed
agreement.
"If this is how [the wastewater
district officials] want to treat
their customers, this is not where
I want to take my business," Hill
said.
The draft agreement was
released at the Key Largo waste-
water district's March 22 board
meeting. The agreement provides
for Islamorada piping sewage to
the Key Largo district's waste-
water treatment facility at mile
marker 100.5, so the village


would not have to build and
maintain treatment facilities.
Building a pipeline would
probably cost about the same as
building treatment facilities,
Islamorada Village Manager
Gary Word said. However, con-
necting to Key Largo's treatment
plant could save Islamorada oper-
ating costs in the future, he said.
Charles Fishburn, general
manager of the Key Largo waste-
water district, said the cost of
building the pipeline could be
much lower than previous esti-
mates and significantly lower
than building a treatment facility.
Key Largo's treatment facility
will cost about $25 million, but
Fishburh said new data indicates
the cost of building approximate-
ly 30 miles of pipeline could
come in as low as $5 million.
But angering some Islamorada
officials is the provision in the
draft agreement that ownership of
the facility and pipeline, no mat-
ter how much money Islamorada
contributes, will be the Key
Largo wastewater district's.
The wastewater transmission,
treatment, and disposal facilities
"are, and shall be, the sole prop-
erty of the District regardless of
any capital contributions made,
or to be made, by Customer," the
draft agreement says.
A Dec. 12, 2006 document
from the district's attorney,
Thomas Dillon, said that no
Islamorada resident could be on
the wastewater treatment dis-
trict's board of commissioners
because of the district's geo-
graphic boundaries.
"Therefore, in the absence of
legislative action, it is not possi-
ble to place representatives of the
Village on the District Board,"


the document stated.
Islamorada councilwoman
Hill said Key Largo wastewater
officials are interested in having
Islamorada's sewage because the
increased flow would help their
system work properly. But the
draft agreement benefits only
Key Largo, she said.
"If they're want our money
and our effluent, they should find
a way" to get Islamorada repre-
sentation on the board, Hill said
in a telephone interview.
Fishbum said the agreement
shouldn't be snagged on the issue
of representation. He pointed to
Broward County as an example.
It has a handful of treatment cen-
ters where about 11 municipali-
ties pipe their sewage to, but
these municipalities don't have
elected representation on a waste-
water board.
He also said that Islamorada
could someday have a seat on the
board because the wastewater
district may be expanded to
include Islamorada.
"This doesn't mean by 2020
that the special district wouldn't
be expanded," Fishbum said.
It's not clear when the Village
Council will discuss the draft
agreement. Village officials and
Orlando-based engineering firm
E Sciences are comparing the
benefits of piping sewage out of
Islamorada and treating it inter-
nally.
Islamorada Mayor Chris Sante
said he was hoping to send a
strong message that Islamorada
supports the joint venture with at
least a 4-1 vote by the council.
"I am an advocate of the
pipeline," Sante said.
But, as it stands, the other
council members are either
strongly against the proposal or
undecided.-

interim director


Eadie to fill
spot vacated
by Dr. May
Keynoter Staff


The Monroe County Health
Department has a new interim
administrator beginning April 30.
On Thursday, the Florida
Department of Health announced
the selection of Deputy Secretary
Bob Eadie to fill the shoes of Dr.
Susana May, who resigned earli-
er this month.
Eadie, an attorney, has more
than 30 years of public health
experience, said Health
Department spokeswoman Gerri
White.
"[He] has been a member of
the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention councils in addi-
tion to various other federal,
state, local, and community law
councils," White wrote in a state-
ment released Thursday. "He
brings an intimate understanding
of public health on all fronts to
Monroe County."
May resigned abruptly to
accept a position with the
Community Health Center in
Little Havana, a satellite of the
University of Miami Jackson
Hospital Netwdrk.
When she decided to resign,
May told the Keynoter the final
straw was because former Health
Department employees, who she
had fired, spoke out against her
and the department in a Key West
weekly tabloid and her request


for support
from the
Florida
Department of
Health was
denied.
The admin-
istration told
her "don't say
EADIE anything, we
would just like
you to resign," May said. "...I've
given my blood, sweat and tears
to this Health Department. I feel
like I've given everything I can
and it's time to move on."
May also said what she's per-
ceived as a lack of financial sup-
port or to even "be able to offer
the Health Department employ-
ees a living wage" contributed to
her decision.
Eadie has family ties in the
Keys, according to White. His
daughter and grandchildren live
in Monroe County.
"I have a vested interest in the
county health department here,
because of my family ties" Eadie
said in the department release. "I
want to help the staff here to be
successful in what they do and
ensure the continued health of the
residents of the Florida Keys."
Until Eadie arrives in the
Keys, Nursing Director Steve
Mason is overseeing the health
department, a role he's filled in
the past. Mason headed the
department for several months in
2003 and 2004 after the resigna-
tion of May's predecessor Dr.
Jake Rutherford.

Stock Island man
charged with theft

A Stock Island man was
arrested Thursday on outstanding
warrants for fraud and dealing in
stolen property. At the time of his
Arrest, he was also driving a car
reported stolen in the city of Key
West.
Tuesday, two Rockland Key
men reported their home was
broken into and several items
were stolen, including two televi-
sions, a DVD player, a Sony
Playstation and several games,
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
spokeswoman Becky Herrin
reports.
One of the victims said he
went to a Key West pawn shop
, and an acquaintance of his, 43-


year-old Brian Brenneman, was
also there pawning a television
set. The victim said he comment-
ed that it looked just like his TV,
and that Brenneman was acting
kind of funny, but he didn't think
anything of it until he got home
and found his TV had been stolen
along with the other items.
After confronting Brenneman
at his trailer the victim called the
Sheriff's Office.
The investigation confirmed
the theft, and also uncovered
Brenneman's connection to other
area thefts, including a stolen
vehicle.
He was charged with three
counts of fraud, two counts of
dealing in stolen property, and
grand theft auto and booked into
the Monroe County Detention
Center. .

Students go from portables to state-of-the-art building


SCHOOL/ From

is a big step."
It will also be a big change
from the former school that was
built in the 1950s and demolished
just after the portables arrived.
On the third floor, for
instance, science and math class-
rooms surround a central meeting
space resembling more of a cor-
porate boardroom with a long
table, digital projector and audio
equipment that broadcasts lec-
tures from miked teachers.


Large windows allow plenty
of natural light to bounce off
futuristic-looking desks and chars
that, again, make the school feel
more like a state-of-the-art busi-
ness complex than a school.
This is just the latest step in
the completion of the $41.5 mil-
lion project, and was actually
completed more than a month
ago.
"Rather than having them
move in before FCAT tests and
have bunch of confusion for the
kids, we decided to work with
district and defer the move-in,"


said Niels Hubbell, vice president
of construction manager Heery
International.
Hubbell said the next step of
the project, which is about a
month behind schedule but catch-


ing up, is to turn over the voca-
tional building and cafeteria next
fall and the interior courtyard
sometime this summer for the
local community to work on.
Hubbell stated that construc-


tion of the auditorium should be
finished by the beginning of
2008, barring any hurricanes this
season, and would complete the
entire project.


Bridge work to begin


STRETCH / From 1

Card Sound Bridge, about four
miles from the intersection to
Ocean Reef.
Temporary traffic signals will
be erected at Saunders Creek to
alternate traffic onto the north-
bound lane.
Throughout April, contrac-
tors on the U.S. 1 widening proj-
ect plan to close a lane of the
main highway overnight, from 8
p.m. to 5:30 a.m., Tuesdays and
Thursday.
"That's an attempt to create a
schedule so people can plan for
it or work around it," Jones said.
The work on Card Sound
Road is part of a yearlong, $4.9-
million project to repair and
upgrade five bridges on the
Monroe County side of the road.
"The bridges on Card Sound
Road were built some time ago,
and these repairs are necessary
to keep them in good working
order," said Albert Edwards,
project manager for Monroe
County.
Work will include structural
repairs including concrete and
pilings, and new guardrails were
needed. Bridges at Steamboat
Creek, Tubby's Creek, Mosquito
Creek and Card Sound are tar-
geted for repairs, in addition to
Saunders Creek.
Coastal Marine Construction
is the lead contractor.
"Due to the proximity to
water, work will performed with
proper environmental controls to
minimize impacts," according to
a Monroe County Engineering
Department report.
Work on the bridges along
Card Sound Road is expected to
run through March 2008.
On U.S. 1, most of the
Tuesday and Thursday nighttime
lane closures will take place near
Jewfish Creek so contractors and
place beams and perform other
activities related to building the


new Jewfish Creek Bridge.
Large cranes being used on
the project need the space to lift
the massive beams onto pilings,
Jones said.

Fire closes road
Card Sound Road closed
completely Friday afternoon
because of a large brush fire in
Miami-Dade County, north of
Card Sound Bridge.
Both northbound and south-
bound traffic were diverted to
U.S. 1, which remained open
and travelers between Key
Largo and Ocean Reef were not
affected.
Deputies manned a check-
point at mile marker 106 to alert
motorists that the road was
closed between North Key
Largo and Florida City.
A dry spring has increased
the possibility of a brush fire in
the wooded area of south
Miami-Dade.
The road was reopened after
about 45 minutes around 5 p.m.,
said Monroe County Sheriff's
Office spokeswoman Becky
Herrin.

Keys Opinion


Common sense needed

to overcome roadblocks

The do-it-yourself movement familiar to most of us involves
the brave home handyman who tackles tiling, or replacing the
kitchen sink.
But, when it comes to sewer systems and wastewater plants,
we're reluctant to see further movement in that direction.
As reported in today's Keynoter, negotiations between the
Village of Islamorada and the
Key Largo Wastewater Board
to let Key Largo process some
of Islamorada's sewage are getting nowhere fast.
We first reported on these talks back in November, when the
idea surfaced along with a consultant's estimate that shipping
Village sewage north instead of building a separate plant -
could save millions.
E Sciences, an engineering consultant hired by the Village,
indicated the cost of building the pipeline to Key Largo would
be "about $5 million."
By avoiding the expense of building a stand-alone plant, the
Village could save anywhere from $8-$10 million so it
looked like an easy decision, right?
Not so fast. There's always a "but" in these intra-govern-
mental negotiations. The Village raised questions about juris-
diction and fair representation on the Key Largo board.
Lawyers and policy makers are scrambling to see if those
issues prove to be deal breakers.
The legislative mandate that created the Key Largo
Wastewater District defines the boundaries and they don't
include Islamorada or the areas of Tavernier and Key Largo not
in the district.
An inter-local agreement might satisfy some of the legal
issues, but Village officials still want to address "fair represen-
tation."
The Key Largo District Board has already indicated they do
not want to include any representation from the Village on their
board.
Another wrinkle giving negotiators heartburn is the Village's
expressed desire to incorporate water reuse in their sewer plan.
The Key Largo board doesn't think that extra expense can be
cost-justified.
Village Council member Cathi Hill has also said she's wor-
ried about wastewater funding and how such a program to ship
Village sewage elsewhere for processing could impact funding
from state and federal agencies.
With multiple authorities now engaged in wastewater proj-
ects throughout the Keys and all clamoring for funding, that s
a big "if."
Even though it appeared to be an easy way out for the Village
to forgo a DIY approach to sewers, passing the burden along to
the Key Largo District is not without costs and some peril.
If political egos and territoriality could be set aside for the
moment, building fewer plants at less cost to users makes
sense.
If that's the shared goal of the Village Council and the Key
Largo Board, then perhaps practical minds can work out the
details to benefit the ratepayers in both communities and
that would be a wonderful thing to behold.

Be careful driving through work zones


EDITOR:
Work-zone safety is everyone's business.
According to the Federal Highway
Administration, there is a work-zone crash
injury in the U.S. every 11 minutes. When
drivers speed through work zones, crash
risks increase.
Drivers frustrated with delays or changes
to their normal driving route tend to ignore
speed reduction signs. Construction workers
routinely see motorists traveling through the
work zone hurried and inattentive. In a
recent report from Illinois, a motorist was
observed driving through a work zone with a
spreadsheet across the steering wheel, cell
phone in one hand and saluting the workers
with a cup of coffee in the other hand.
Here in the Keys, a recent letter to the
editor complained about law enforcement
presence in the work zone at mile marker
106. Contrary to popular belief, the ultimate
goal is not issuance of traffic citations; it is
to save lives and prevent injuries.
Countless studies have shown it makes
sense to reduce speed in areas where there is
an increased risk. It is hoped that motorists
will comply with the speed limit. However,
When work-zone signs and speed-limit reduc-
tions are ignored, enforcement action must
be taken as a deterrent to this behavior.


There are several issues that make the
area north of mile marker 106 an area where
a speed reduction would be the smart thing
to do: There is a curve in the road, the road-
way narrows from four lanes to two, there
are intersecting roadways with a mix of busi-
ness and residential areas, and local drivers
as well as visitors unfamiliar with the territo-
ry.
Add to this the fact that there is a major
construction project underway with lane
shifts and heavy equipment and workers
close to the traveled way.
Factor in distractions to the driver such as
things going on outside the vehicle, and the
endless multi-tasking things we routinely do
inside our vehicle.
National Work Zone Safety Awareness
Week will be observed April 2 to 6 but your
local Community Traffic Safety Teams [com-
prising numerous local agencies] hope you
will be aware and be prepared 52 weeks per
year. And remember, there is ongoing con-
struction throughout the Keys. Obeying the
posted speed limit in work zones is less
about avoiding a ticket and more about the
safety of motorists and construction workers
alike.
Patty Ivey, chairwoman
Marathon Community Traffic Safety


Uniform speed limit not the only answer


EDITOR:
I was so happy to read the article in the
March 14 edition in which reporter David
Ball wrote the Marathon City Council
"approved an ordinance establishing a uni-
form speed zone throughout the city ... [that]
allows the city to change speed limits on
city streets...."
I'm sure the council will decide to change
the speed limit on U.S. 1 to the 35 mph now
posted at the west end of the city, a speed
established by the state Department of
Transportation years ago as the safe speed
for that end of the city before the city grew.
Some parts of U.S. 1 at the west end are
two lanes the entrance to the old bridge
or and the area of Knights Key.
Where the road opens up to four lanes, it
does not have the benefit of a fifth turning
lane or a nice landscaped island barrier. In

Aquaculture has
double standards
EDITOR:
Conrad Lautenbacher, a big wheel for the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration, states-the obvious in his
guest column March 17: "Aquaculture bill .
makes sense." We can all agree.
But he left out the history of Keys fisher-
men and crabbers who have been practicing
aquaculture for years. They have been plac-
ing artificial habitat allowing fry, baby lob-
sters and shrimp a place to survive. But now
they may be arrested because they don't
have the permits and are forbidden from get-
ting them. Big Brother can get them, we
can't.
Bob Horan
Marathon


about 30 blocks, the road does service many
condos and motels, restaurants, the U.S.
Coast Guard station, Marathon Government
Center, a church, the DOT office and more.
Yes, I am sure the council will decide to
establish a uniform speed limit on U.S. 1 at
35 mph to ensure the safety of Main Street
Marathon and not the speedway to Key
West.
If you want to fix problems on U.S. 1,
may I suggest redesigning the entrances to
Fishermen's Hospital and the nearby traffic
light? They don't match.

Editor's note: The City Council voted
March 28, with Councilman Chris Bull
absent, on the ordinance. The tie 2-2 vote
meant the ordinance failed.

Marine mechanics saved vacation


EDITOR:
Everyone who comes to Florida
towing a boat wants to enjoy it
and the watersports available, not
spending time and money. fixing it
while the vacation passes.
I was having great time fishing
with my new boat, twin engines,
fast and fun, until one had a prob-
lem overheating. Now what? I am
in a strange place, know where
nothing is at, and I need a quick
fix. Remember, I am on a limited
vacation, time is important.
I called several engine-repair
places that cover warranty work.
"Sure, come over in two weeks
and we will try to work you in at
some point," or, "We do not have
any openings for some time and
don't know when an opening will
come up." I heard that loud and
clear.
Then I called Shelter Bay
Marine at a friend's suggestion.
They said, "Ask for Tip." So I
called and Jeff Tipsword, service
manager, answered with, "How
can we help you?" It made me feel
like I had just checked into a
grand hotel complex.
I told him of the overheating
problem, and me being from out of
town and on a limited scheduled
vacation. "I'understand, as this
does happen on occasion. Can you


bring it in tomorrow at 8 a.m. and
I'll see what can be done," was
Tipsword's response. I smiled like
I had hit the Lotto. First thing I do
is tell all my friends about my
great fortune in calling Shelter
Bay Marine. They are going to get
me back on vacation.
I met with Tip, who assigned
me to his master mechanic,
Charlie Bragan. What a great indi-
vidual he turned out to be. After
performing several diagnostics, he
determined the problem, contacted
the manufacturer for warranty
authorization and eliminated the
cause. The way Charlie handled
my engine and performed the test-
ing procedures was done extreme-
ly well, like the true professional
master mechanic he is.
It did take a couple of days to
get the parts and then install them,
but I did not lose a day's use.
Thinking about how the outcome
would have been had I not made
that call to Tip only makes me feel
sad that the others have missed the
true meaning of customer satisfac-
tion.
Thanks again to Shelter Bay
Marine for making Marathon the
No. 1 vacation destination for so
many.

Whatever happened to customer service?


EDITOR:
Can someone please tell me the
definition of customer service? I
got back fcrm shopping and I am
compelled to finally put on paper
what I have been screaming to say
for months.
I won't mention the merchant,
but I walked into a local store
where there were two ladies work-
ing right by the door who seemed
to be chatting about personal mat-
ters. Neither of them acknowl-
edged me or said good morning,
hello, let me know if I can help
you or any of the things I was
taught when learning the customer
service business. Fine.
I walked around for quite a
while and finally had a question.
The "stupid" sign on my forehead
must have been blinking because
when I interrupted their morning
coffee chat, you would have
thought I was the most ignorant
and annoying person to ever step
foot in the store. Surprising with
this attitude anyone ever steps foot
in that store.
I thought better about buying
something and supporting this
treatment and headed for the door,
thinking in the back of my mind as
I reached for the handle, here
comes the "have a nice day."
Wishful thinking. I walked out
without disturbing their conversa-
tion a bit.
So I walked another two doors


down into another store looking for
an electronic device. Again, no
greeting as I walked through the
door, but then again, Imay have
fallen over at a simple hello.
I stood there trying to figure out
what I needed, looking curiously
over the boxes with a sales person
not 10 feet from me and for five
minutes was never asked if that
person could help me. Again, I
headed for the door. I will let you
wonder if anyone said "have a nice
day" on my way out.
And merchants wonder why
people shop online.
I myself am in the customer
service business and am always
surprised when unanimously, all of
my clients comment on what a
wonderful staff I have working for
me. I think to myself, sure, they
are nice but they really are just
doing their job, serving the cus-
tomer all the while with a smile on
their face. It is a sad day when that
is considered the exception and not
the rule.
Are merchants so desperate for
employees? Are we devoid of any
training? Are people really that
miserable? Somebody please help
me understand.
If you are going to work in the
customer service business, you
need to remember why you are get-
ting paid to serve the customer.

Hot topic increasingly has


global consequences


A headline this week in The Miami
Herald caught. quite a bit of attention:
"Are 100-degree days in our future?"
The article, about global warming and
forecasting the impacts on weather pat-
terns and temperature, proved quite
thought provoking.
Having recently seen the Al Gore
film, "An Inconvenient Truth," it helps
to sharpen the focus on what we're
doing to the environment.
And, hopefully, it has helped trigger a
more vigorous discussion by policy
makers in this country about what we
can do to reverse the tidal wave that
threatens our future.
For years, the debate in
Washington D.C. was predi-
cated on conflicting scientif-
ic evidence about global
warming.
And the lock-step Repub-
lican leadership followed the
White House party line pret-
ty faithfully, debunking any
evidence that showed the
polar ice caps were retreat-
ing, that the snowcap on Mt.
Kilimanjaro could disappear Wayne i
for the first time in 11,000 Keynoter
years, and that ocean levels
are rising as global warming
reduces ice sheets at both poles.
Yet, outside of a core group who still
debate the validity of Darwin's evolu-
tion theory, most science today con-
cedes that a buildup of carbon dioxide
and other "greenhouse" gases is a major
factor in global warming.
One of the more chilling visuals in the
Al Gore movie shows what would hap-
pen to Manhattan Island if the shelf ice
in Greenland continues to melt at cur-
rent rates. Virtually two-thirds of the
island would be under water.
Imagine the Florida Keys if ocean lev-
els rose even six or seven inches, let
alone six or seven feet!
It's all quite scary and makes most
people just turn away and assume
there's nothing they can do about it any-
way.
Well, you can do something.
For starters, come to today's Green
Living and Energy Education expo at
Stanley Switlik Elementary School.
You'll learn a lot about energy conser-
vation, water conservation, recycling,
fuel cell and hybrid automobiles, use of
native plants to reduce heat loads and
our dependence on air conditioning.
And lest you think little things don't
add up, consider this:
Plant a tree. They suck up carbon
dioxide and make the air cleaner to
breathe. You can help reduce CO2 emis-


sions by 2,000 pounds per year
Unplug appliances when not in use.
That can save 1,000 pounds of CO2
and up to $150 per year in reduced util-
ity costs.
When you next trade for a car,
check out the new generation hybrids.
They can save 16,000 pounds of C02
emissions each year. For the average
driver, that's up to $3,700 in fuel sav-
ings each year.
And, if you want to find out more
about what you can do to save your
money, and your planet, come to the
GLEE and check out all the information
and the 15 vehicles with the
latest in hybrid fuel, electric
and bioenergy technology.
The event kicks off at 9
a.m. and runs until 5 p.m.
And, best of all, it's free.

i Watching Marathon's new
arkham City Council members at
Publisher their first organizational
meeting to elect a mayor and
vice mayor was a trip back
memory lane.
With outgoing mayor Chris Bull
absent and two new councilmen sworn
in, the vote for mayor came down to a
2-2 tie.
Newly elected councilman Mike
Cinque nominated Marilyn Tempest
and newly elected councilman Don
Vasil nominated Pete Worthington.
Both Tempest and Worthington voted
for themselves, thus a 2-2 stalemate.
No one budged, so Tempest wound up
as temporary mayor to serve as presid-
ing officer for the rest of the meeting.
Reminded me of a high school elec-
tion for class president where the votes
were equally split and with equal parts
frustration at the non-outcome.
In that high school election, however,
one of the candidates switched his vote
and cast it for his competitor. A gesture,
by the way, that proved wise indeed as
he wound up being voted in as home-
coming king later in the year.
Too bad we don't have homecoming
king or queen posts as consolation
prizes for Marathon city council.
At least the council's next meeting on
April 10 with Bull back from his ski trip
will be well worth the price of admis-
sion. We can hardly wait to see how all
the behind-the-scenes maneuvering will
turn out when it comes to counting up
the votes for next mayor.

New push to terminate


Mayor awaits
state probe
into permits
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


It's no secret that Key West
Mayor Morgan McPherson
wants to fire City Manager Julio
Avael without cause.
But the latest wrinkle in this
tug of war is a push to terminate
for cause, McPherson said.
Surfacing now are questions
about an investigation into per-
mits issued last year that allowed
an early opening for Pat Croce's
Rum Barrel on Simonton and
Front streets.
McPherson said there were
some questionable actions taken
by Avael and assistant city man-
ager John Jones, and that if the
investigation finds anything
improper, he would push "a reso-
lution that looks at suspension
with charges," he said.
This could possibly save the
city $71,423.05 in severance pay,
which is six months of Avael's
salary, plus a year's worth of
health insurance benefits, which
comes to $7,827.60.
But dogging the severance
pay would only occur if Avael-is
"found guilty of a misdemeanor

ized to sign off on the certificates
needed to open, but Jones said
that circumstances which he
cannot fully divulge at this time
- required the bar and restaurant
to open early with his consent.
"They needed a city official's
signature," Jones said. "I signed
it as a city official."
Jones signed a temporary cer-
tificate on Feb. 3, 2006, for a
period of 90 days, or until May 3.
Jones said he did not violate any
safety codes and that the only
part of the facility that was not
finished was a stairwell, which
meant the occupancy limit was
49 people and, according to
Jones, a fire marshal was present
to enforce this rule.
"Its not what you think it is,"
Jones said. "...There was a reason
that I signed [the certificate of
occupancy] a legal reason that
had nothing to do with coercion."
McPherson is waiting to hear
back from the Department of
Business and Professional
Regulation before he attempts to
fire Avael.
"That's why I didn't sponsor it
on the next agenda," he said.
"Once the determination comes,
that could change the scenario."
But Avael said the allegations
are false.
"It's just a vendetta from the
mayor... he seems obsessed with
getting rid of me." Avael said,
"He's pulling at strings to find
something, and he's not going to
find anything."
Avael noted that the Key West
Fire Department also signed off
on the certificate.
Joe April, who was the Key
West building official at the time
the Rum Barrel was opened,
refused to issue the certificate of


occupancy due to incomplete
construction and lack of proper
inspection of the building,
according to a complaint issued
to the Department of Business
and Professional Regulation in
December of 2006.
When asked why he didn't
sign the certificate, April
declined to comment, following
his attorney's recommendation.
April is under investigation
because, according to complaints
issued by the regulation depart-
ment, he "allegedly had an obli-
gation to notify the state licens-
ing authority that Mr. Jones exe-
cuted a temporary certificate of
occupancy without legal authori-
ty," according to a memo written
by Shawn Smith, the city's attor-
ney.
If passed, a resolution on the
agenda for Tuesday would grant
April legal representation.
After the regulation depart-
ment responds, Jones said that
among the reasons he will dis-
close, he signed the certificate
because April was out of town
when the Rum Barrel needed to
have its grand opening. He also
said Avael did not "coerce" him
to do anything.
"He's been the best city man-
ager I've ever worked under,"
Jones said.
The certificate was officially
authorized on Aug. 11, 2006
when the deputy building official
at the time, John Woodson,
signed the certificate of occupan-
cy after the building was fully
inspected and ready. Woodson is
now the city's building official.
It appears the facility did not
have a certificate legal or ille-
gal between May and August,
2006.
If McPherson's push to termi-
nate Avael's contract moves for-
ward, the mayor said that he
would split Avael's duties
between four department head
"team leaders." Avael created the
leadership team.

'Preserve waterfront'


BOCC hears
options at
workshop
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


The Florida Keys are home to
the largest commercial fishing
port in the state, and the 8th
largest in the nation, according to
Marathon Boat Yard owner Bruce
Popham, who asked the Monroe
County Commission to make
some wise choices for preserving
the working waterfront.
"It's going to take commis-
sioners with backbone to address
the value of the waterfront to our
overall economy," said County
Commissioner George Neugent.
The commission convenes
Tuesday in a special workshop
session to further discuss a pro-
posed waterfront ordinance first
broached at the March 21 com-
mission meeting.
The workshop begins at 10
a.m. at the Marathon Govern-
ment Center.
The proposed ordinance pro-


vides three options aimed at pre-
serving the commercial fishing
waterfront, ranging from a prohi-
bition of zoning changes to a bal-
ance that would allow some resi-
dential development.
Neugent, who has led the way
in dealing with the transforma-
tion of working waterfront to
high-end condos, says it's one of
the more complex issues at hand.
He says it's difficult to address
when the people who actually
own waterfront parcels "seem to
want it both ways. They want the
appreciation of their property
value and at the same time have
the low taxes so they can main-
tain it at the current usage."
If county government doesn't
come up with a solution, said
Neugent, market forces will
decide the outcome.
"It will clearly create a gentri-
fled situation in the Keys for just
the wealthy," he said. "There will
be no public access [to the water-
front], no working marinas."
Popham, who actually owns
one of those working waterfront
parcels, has stood shoulder to


shoulder with Neugent in advo-
cating preservation. He pointed
out to the commission during the
March 21 meeting that the com-
mercial fishing industry in the
Keys provides more than 3,000
jobs.
"We are a working waterfront
community," Popham said.
"Water access doesn't just mean
you have the opportunity to look
at the water."
Neugent says that the problem
of preserving the waterfront
segues into another of the Keys'
major problems: affordable hous-
ing.
"What happens when these
guys wake up and find no one to
work on their toys?" he said.
"That's the way this commission
is headed. We're closing the door
on all but the wealthy by our
actions or our inactions."
The commission will also be
hearing a monthly update from
the Pigeon Key Foundation, a
report that Mayor Mario Di
Gennaro requested late last year.
The workshop will be broad-
cast live on Comcast Channel 76
and on the county's Web site,
www. Monroecounty-fl.gov.

$137,000 paid to
Gonzalez without
council approval
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

Marathon City Manager
Mike Puto made several apolo-
gies to the newly seated City
Council Tuesday night after
admitting he approved an addi-
tional $137,000 to a contract
with Gonzalez Landscaping
without council approval.
Two weeks ago, City
Attorney Jimmy Morales and
Finance Director Peter Rosasco
told the council they reviewed
Puto's renewals and defended
the Gonzalez contract as consis-
tent with city policy.
Morales and Rosasco further
defended Puto's actions in a
subsequent article in the
Keynoter. However, Puto on
Tuesday said the mistake was
clear.
"I have recently, re-evaluated
the extension and it is clear that I
erred because the extended con-
tract included two new items,
totaling approximately $130,000,"
Puto read from a prepared state-
ment.

Keys briefs


Ritz, Hertel and
Wagner re-elected

Incumbent board President
David Ritz has been re-elected
for another three-year term on
Florida Keys Electric Co-
operative Board of Directors for
District 1, Key Largo. Key Largo
businessman Spencer Slate
opposed Ritz for the seat.
The election was held
Tuesday; polls were open from 7
a.m. to 7 p.m.
Ritz received 642 votes and
Slate received 397 votes of the
total 1,039 votes cast. Ritz was
originally appointed to the board
in 1999 and was elected board
president in 2005.
In other districts, incumbents
George Hertel (District 3,
Islamorada) and Karl Wagner
(District ,4, Marathon) were
unopposed and re-elected.
The nine-seat board establish-
es policies and review opera-
tional procedures to promote a
progressive, financially sound
utility.


The new items were mainte-
nance of the city Events Field
for nearly $37,000 and mainte-
nance for Community Park
phase two for nearly $100,000.
Those brought total contracts
with Gonzalez to more than
$461,000.
Puto had been working under
council policy that any contract
changes with price increases of
$25,000 or more would be
brought to the council for a vote.
"I realize that, given the
amount, I should have sought
council approval," Puto added.
"I apologize for that error."
Rosasco said the confusion
was that the original 2003 main-
tenance contract included work
for Community Park phase two,
even though that section of the
park wasn't completed until
2006.
Gonzalez apparently bid on
that portion along with other
firms, and when Gonzalez
received the contract in 2003 it
did not include the $100,000 for
phase two. That was added once
the park came online and
Gonzalez began maintaining it.
However, Puto and staff gave
no explanation for the Events
Field contract.
"I don't think there was any
intention to do anything" behind
the scenes, Councilwoman
Marilyn Tempest said. "But that
bothers me more that there
wasn't enough knowledge to
know that was wrong."
"I think we should take some
action tonight to rectify it," she
added. "It's a serious problem if
we don't have a good handle on
our finances."
The council, which included
the newly seated Don Vasil and
Mike Cinque and was without
the absent Mayor Chris Bull,
agreed to have city public works
staff maintain the Events Field
and to rebid the other contracts.
Vasil suggested the contracts
be separated into three mainte-
nance areas Community Park
phase one and two, Sombrero
and Coco Plum beaches and
Jesse Hobbs and Rotary parks.
Councilman Pete Worthington,
who first discovered problems in
the contracts several weeks ago,
said there could be similar prob-
lems with other contracts, includ-
ing ones approved for debris
removal during the hurricanes of
2005.
Worthington said he is wait-
ing for a report on city contracts
from Rosasco.

Don't throw chickens out the window


Birds rescued
after motorists
call in report
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Love 'em or hate 'em, there
are just some things you don't do,
and throwing chickens out of the
car window is one of them.
"It is so cruel to do such a
thing," said Maya Totman, who
runs the Florida Keys Wildlife
Rescue Center on Big Pine Key.
But it appears that's exactly
what happened Wednesday. A
driver called the dispatcher at the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office,
Totman said, reporting that a car
in front of them was throwing
live chickens some in paper
bags out the car window along
U.S. 1 in the vicinity of Rockland
Key.
"At first we thought maybe
someone was making fun of us,"
Totman said. "But we did find
chickens."
Totman called Key West
chicken advocate Katha Sheehan


Chickens are rescued Wednesday by (from left) Maya
Totman, Katha Sheehan and Officer Jimmy Johnson with the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.


to help find the cast out birds.
Sheehan, who has been rescu-
ing roosters for a decade or more,
has some creative ways of captur-
ing injured or unwanted fowl. For
this rescue, she leashed a rooster
and led him down the side of the
road to lure the frightened hens.
It worked. A couple of hens
and a handful of chicks scuttled


out of the roadside brush, and
Sheehan offered them food, then
netted them.
"The food sealed the deal,"
Sheehan said.
The rescued birds were deliv-
ered Wednesday evening to their
adoptive homes with two
employees of Salvation Army on
Big Pine Key.


Coincidentally or not,
Rockland Key and its chickens
have been in the news lately after
the Sheriff's Office broke up an
alleged cockfighting ring on
March 15. Lorenzo Miralles, 67,
was arrested and charged with
violating the state's animal cruel-
ty law and the animal fighting
act, both of which are third
degree felonies.
Deputies found 168 birds on
Miralles' property, 80 of which
were immediately confiscated by
Monroe County's animal control.
"We're trying to get a decision
by the court," Sheriff's Deputy


Becky Herrin said Thursday, "as
to what to do with the roosters.
Do we give them back, or did
[he] forfeit their ownership?"
Herrin said that some of the
birds disappeared overnight after
the first 80 were removed; most of
the injured birds were confiscated.
"The ones that weren't
removed the first day were gone
when animal control went back
for them," Herrin said.
In the meantime, the confis-
cated birds are guests at the coun-
ty's animal farm adjacent to the
Monroe County Detention Center
on Stock Island.

Marathon mayorship still up in air


Council splits
vote while Bull
stuck in Utah
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com


It was a divided dais at the
Marathon City Council Tuesday
night shortly after the swearing in
of new councilmen Mike Cinque
and Don Vasil.
Mayor Chris Bull's absence
left a vacant center seat that phys-
ically separated council members
Marilyn Tempest and Cinque to
the left and councilmen Pete
Worthington and Vasil to the
right.
Then, the two groups aligned
in the first order of business with
a split vote for who should be the
city's next mayor Cinque


nominated and voted for
Tempest, who then voted for her-
self, and Vasil nominated and
voted for Worthington, who then
voted for himself.
It would seem that Bull, who
was vacationing in Utah and
couldn't fly back in time for the
meeting due to weather, will have
the vote to end the stalemate
when the council meets again
April 10.
However, Worthington said
he's been hearing flurries of
rumors surrounding the vote and
said it's still anybody's chance to
be mayor.
"Everybody in town is talking
to me about this, and they are all
feeding me what they are hearing
on streets. It's like big gossip,"
Worthington said. "There's defi-
nitely a possibility of three


options. You can't count Chris
out."
Bull has previously stated a
desire to return as mayor the
first time a councilman would
repeat the office since the city's
first mayor, Bob Miller held the
mayorship in 2000 and 2001.
Bull did not return repeated
calls for comment this week, but
in a recent press release said, "I
am willing to serve another term,
but if there is another council
member who is willing to put the
extra time in to be mayor, I will
be happy to step down."
Both Tempest and
Worthington said they'd be will-
ing to serve but had not actively
sought the mayoral post. On
Friday, however, neither said they
would change their vote in the
case of another tie if Bull nomi-
nated, and voted for, himself,
"I would expect one of the
newer councilmen [Cinque and
Vasil] would move in that case,"
said Tempest, who was voted as
acting mayor to chair Tuesday's
meeting.
"I thought the meeting moved
along fairly well. I was happy
with it," Tempest added.
However, Worthington said
his three years experience on the
board, his year as vice mayor in
2003 and his large margin of vic-
tory over incumbent Miller in
2006 should make him the likely
choice.
"It was interesting, the vibe,
that there is support going one
way, support going the other way,
and Chris is in the middle,"
Worthington said. "I hope it does-
n't form some sort of three-to-two
block. That would be a-shame."
Although largely a ceremonial
position, the mayor has the lead
in setting meeting agendas and
dictating council and public dis-
cussions. The mayor also has the
final vote, which could swing
decisions for ordinances.

Council denies board, speed limit changes


Staff to bring
back options for
104th Street
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
met in regular session Tuesday
and took the following actions:
Denied an ordinance
"establishing a uniform speed
zone through the city," which
staff claimed would have
allowed the city to change
speed limits on city streets
when applicable. The item
failed in a 2-2 vote, with coun-
cilmen Pete' Worthington and
Mike Cinque voting against the
item and Councilwoman
Marilyn Tempest and
Councilman Don Vasil voting
for it.
Denied the creation of a
historical preservation board
that would recommend to the
council properties to nominate
for historic preservation and
recommend new land develop-
ment regulations to assist in
preserving historic properties.
Worthington spoke in favor
of the board, but later voted
along with the council to deny.
Agreed to let City
Manager Mike Puto bring back
detailed presentations on
options to develop affordable
housing on city-owned proper-
ty near 104th Street. Puto said
options include putting the
project out for bid or allowing
the city to manage the project
and hire its own contractors.
Approved the purchase of
a Cummins/Onan diesel-driven
generator at $123,380 for the
new city fire station.
Approved an agreement
with Public Resources
Management Group Inc. for a
wastewater utility rate study at
$29,800.
Staff said the study would
use current bid prices of por-
tions of Marathon's citywide
wastewater project, along with
estimates and projections, to
determine what the actual costs
of the system will be for all
users.
The council also approved a
contract with Government
Services Group for $52,500 to
place assessment fees for some
residents on the 2007 tax roll.
Approved a resolution
creating new city fees for resi-
dents applying to use the city's
new transfer of building rights
(TBR) ordinance.
Staff expects to charge $300
each for two applications -


one to determine the vested
number of TBRs on a property,
and a second one for staff
review, approval and issuance
of a permit to transfer the
rights.
Approved a resolution
designating 61st Street with the
honorary title of Hathaway
Lane in memory of the late
Eric Hathaway, who formerly
operated Tropical Cottages on
61st Street.
Hathaway was a 30-year
Keys resident and hotelier and
was active in local tourism.
Hathaway died from complica-
tions from pneumonia on Dec.
27, 2006. He was 52.
Was told by Puto that
people calling city hall will
now be immediately connected
with a staff member instead of
being routed through an auto-
mated phone system. Calls
after 5 p.m. will still be direct-
ed through the automated sys-
tem.
Agreed to further discuss
options for the aging draw-
bridge connecting Marathon to
Boot Key.
Deputy City Manager C.J.
Geotis said the state
Department of Transportation
estimates it would take $1.5
million in repairs to raise the
acceptable load limit on the
bridge and nearly $6 million
for a complete refurbishment.
Directed staff to bring
back a resolution to change the
start time of council meetings
from 6:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Wedding varience raises ire


Ramos, Morgan
lawyers argue
over celebrations
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Most people would think a
Key West wedding would bring
sunny feelings of love and joy -
not scorn, spite and rock hurling.
But that's what came out
Thursday at a special meeting
held by the Key West City
Commission to rectify mistakes


made regarding notices sent out
to inform neighbors of the
Southernmost House about the
possibility of loud noises from
the wedding guests.
A longtime feud between the
owners of the Southernmost
house, the Ramos family, and
their neighbor, attorney Hugh
Morgan, re-emerged with pas-
sionate squabbling between their
representatives at the meeting.
The attraction morphed into a
museum and luxury guesthouse
in 2003 a transition that gener-
ated concern over noise and extra
traffic among neighbors of the
100-year-old mansion.
Attorneys for the Southern-
most House and representatives
for Morgan spoke on the resolu-
tion, which would grant a noise
variance for a wedding that
would take place at the house
between the hours of 5 to 11 p.m.
Michael Halpem, the Ramos
family attorney, said the
Southernmost House was
deemed the second most desir-
able location in the country for
weddings, and that- they have
already limited the number of
functions held there to satisfy
Morgan.
The house hosted 63 wed-
dings last year and will hold no
more than six this year.
Morgan was out of the country
when the special meeting was
held. Bill Webster, representing
Morgan, said Morgan's been
unhappy with the amount of cele-
bratory functions next door.
Halpem pleaded to allow the
wedding to take place until 11


p.m., a request Webster was not
receptive to, at first.
Commissioner Harry Bethel
urged Webster to allow the cele-
bration to continue.
"On a Saturday, in this town,
nobody goes to bed before 11
p.m.,"'Bethel said.
Webster conceded on the
grounds that Halpem ensure the
festivities begin to "settle down"
by 10 p.m. and that adequate
security would be present.
The latter request spawns
from an incident in which
Webster claimed a soft-ball-size
rock was thrown through
Morgan's window, which,
"because of it's trajectory,
could've only come from the
Southernmost House."
As evidence, Morgan's subor-
dinates brought the rock to the
meeting in a plastic bag, saying
the night the rock was allegedly
thrown, a party was hosted by the
State Attorneys office, with
judges in attendance.
Halpern said he refuses to
believe that a judge or state attor-
ney would throw a rock through
Morgan's window.
As Webster spoke, another
Morgan supporter, obviously dis-
pleased, slammed the rock down
on the railing at Old City Hall.
Some commissioners seemed
displeased as well, but with hav-
ing to hold a meeting on such a
trivial matter.
"It's very sad that because of
personalities, we have these
things come up," Bethel said.
At the close of the meeting,
Commissioner Clayton Lopez
volunteered to be a "mediator"
between the two parties.

City takes up Cay Clubs


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


The City Commission will
vote on a number of resolutions
this Tuesday, two that will offi-
cially grant Clearwater-based
Cay Clubs Resorts and Marinas a
couple of restaurants on the his-
toric Key West Bight.
The Key West Bight board has
already unanimously approved
Southernmost Restaurant
Group's request to transfer their
leases of Turtle Kraals and Half
Shell Raw Bar.
However, the resolution is not
expected to pass without some
discussion.
"I'm expecting a lot of public
comment," said Commissioner
Clayton Lopez.
Port Operations Director
Raymond Archer said earlier this
month that the operations of the
properties could not change as a
result of the lease reassignment.
The City Commission will be
acting as the Caroline Street
Corridor and Bahama Village
Community Redevelopment
Agency in order to vote on the
resolutions.


Cay Clubs is also acquiring
A&B Lobster House complex.
Because the A&B property is pri-
vately owned, its lease re-assign-
ment does not need to be
approved by the City
Commission.
If the transfer on Turtle Kraals
and Half Shell Raw Bar is
approved, Cay Clubs' lease
would expire April 2017.
Other resolutions to appear
Tuesday:
Authorization of funding for
the legal defense of former
Building Official Joe April regard-
ing allegations by the Department
of Business and Professionals
Regulations that he did not inform
the state licensing authority of
Assistant City Manager John
Jones' temporary certificate of
occupancy for the Rum Barrel
restaurant of February. 2006.
Approval of an ordinance
involving major redevelopment
for the use of the Atlantic Shores
property on 510 South Street that
would change 123 transient units
and one non-transient unit into a
hotel complex called "Southern-


most on the Beach."
Allowing Rick's and Dirty
Harry's Entertainment Complex
to hold a Seafood Lobster
Festival on Aug. 11 with a noise
exemption. The festivities will
include a free concert, street fair
and art show. The complex will
donate 25 percent of revenue, or
$1000 to the Key West High
School Scholarship Fund.
Commissioner Mark Rossi will
have to recuse in voting on this
resolution because of his owner-
ship title.
Approval of the Joint
Participation Agreement (JPA)
between the City and the Florida
Department of Transportation
that would allow for the resurfac-
ing and improvement of some
areas where the land-side and
ocean-side (US-1) sidewalk is
rough and uneven, from
Eisenhower Drive to State Road
5. Estimated cost of the project is
$1,072,500.00.
To upgrade solid waste
services and infrastructure by
building a new Solid Waste
Transfer Station at Rockland
Key. This would replace the old
facility on Stock Island.

Hurricane guru takes new job


FLORIDA LIFTS
LIFTS ELEVATORS


lows a pattern for former
Hurricane Center directors who
retire, then find the call of the
media lures them back.
Among the best known in
this group was former Director
Bob Sheets, who spent 33 years
working for the government
and then retired. He soon
became a meteorological con-
sultant for the Florida News
Network and the ABC network.
And Sheets authored a book,
Hurricane Watch, with Florida
journalist Jack Williams, which
included their account of
Hurricane Andrew.
Mayfield said when he's on


air with WPLG's weathermen,
he won't venture into any hurri-
cane forecasting. "I'm going to
continue giving the consistent
message from the Hurricane
Center and enforce that mes-
sage as well."
After toying with the idea of
leaving South Florida,
Mayfield said he "decided on
the Channel 10 offer "because I
thought it would be a good fit,
plus I could stay in South
Florida."
Mayfield and his wife live in
Kendall.
Mayfield spent 34 years
working for the Hurricane
Center, starting out as an intern
and working his way up the lad-


der. He was tapped for the top
job when then-Center Director
Jerry Jarrell left.
"I will not expend any effort
ever on the forecast,"'
Mayfield, 58, told The Miami
Herald's Martin Merzer. "I
don't think anyone can beat the
quality of the forecasts of the
hurricane center.
"I'll just try to make it
understandable ...," he said. "I
will most likely be doing what
I've done in the past, sitting at a
monitor and interacting with
the anchors and the weather
people there at WPLG and
keeping that close connection
with local emergency man-
agers."

'Glitch' fix could hurt

state's condo owners


By BEATRICE E. GARCIA
bgarcia@MiamiHerald.com


WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO

SELL YOUR HOME?
The best home selling climate is when employment in the area is healthy.
Summer is a particularly good season for selling.
Pricing a home realistically is important, regardless of what time of year it is
placed on the market. Ask your real estate agent to tell you the selling price
of nearby homes similar to yours. Check the average number of days on the
market for your area. Strategic timing can sometimes produce the best price.
Don't assume that a rising market will continue indefinitely. It might be bet-
Ster to take your profit now rather than continue to wait. If your home has
appreciated substantially, find out whether you meet the two-year test to
ensure you can take up to $250,000 in exemptions if you're single, or
$500,000 if you're married.
Specializing in Florida Keys real estate since 1984, Patti has lived, worked
and played in the Keys all her life. She has been named as Chairman of the
4th district Advisory Committee to the Tourist Development Council, gradu-
ate and Board Member of Leadership Monroe County, and a member of
Islamorada Acquisition Advisory Committee.


Efforts to provide consumer-
friendly insurance regulation,
evident during the special legisla-
tive session in January, are meet-
ing much more opposition during
the regular session.
A House bill came one step
closer to approval Wednesday
that would undo some of the con-
sumer-friendly provisions of the
massive insurance bill passed by
lawmakers during a special ses-
sion in January.
A so-called "glitch bill,"
meant to fix small technical prob-
lems in the special session bill,
would overturn several provi-
sions that would have benefited
consumers.
A key provision of this bill
would exempt insurers who had
negotiated their back-up insur-
ance before the January special
session from being required to
pass any reinsurance savings
onto their policyholders. The spe-
cial session had required all sav-
ings to be passed on to con-
sumers.
Also, insurers would be
required to resolve claims in 90
days only for residential home-
owners, not for all policyholders.
Insurers have complained that
commercial claims could be too
complex to wrap up in such a
short time period.
However, several representa-
tives, including Jack Seiler, D-
Wilton Manors, were concerned
the glitch bill could leave condo
owners and small-business own-
ers without recourse to quick
claims payments from insurers.
This bill "takes away what


we've already given" consumers,
said Matthew J. Meadows, D-
Lauderhill.
This bill also would leave
consumers with little recourse if
claims weren't resolved prompt-
ly. Rather than taking an insurer
to court, consumers would have
to go to the Office of Insurance
Regulation and ask for a resolu-
tion.
"We did good 60 days ago. We
were the House that fought for
consumers," said Rep. Shelley
Vana, D-West Palm Beach.
Rep. Ron Reagan, the bill's
sponsor and head of the Job and
Entrepreneurship Council, said
the House and this bill were "still
consumer-focused."
Reagan promised to address
concerns that all residential prop-
erty owners, including condo and
mobile-home owners, would be
covered by the provisions of this
bill:
Among the other measures in
this bill is a requirement to allow
insurers to review mitigation dis-
counts and reduce the amount of
a discount as the home or the mit-
igation measures, such as shut-
ters, age.
The bill passed during the spe-
cial session required insurers to
effectively double the current
hurricane mitigation discounts
available to consumers, making
law a provision already passed by
the state's insurance regulators.
So far, there's no companion
bill in the Senate. But Sen. Bill
Posey said Wednesday, a bill to
correct "technical errors" in the
special session insurance law
could surface the week after next.

Investigation


continues on fire


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A March 18 blaze that swept
through a Tavemier storage
building Sunday may have start-
ed when a car believed .to be
stolen was set on fire.
The vehicle-identification
number had been removed from
the car, which was parked inside
one of the storage units, accord-
ing to law-enforcement reports.
Terms of leases for the units
prohibit parking cars in them,
said building owner Chris Sante.
The entire 18,000-square-foot
building one of several in the
large complex may have to be
demolished because of extensive
damage from the fire, Sante said.
Flames spread throughout
several units.
Officers with the Monroe
County Fire Marshal's Office


were leading the investigation
into cause of the fire.
No one was injured in the fire
that was reported just before 8
p.m.
Emergency units from fire
departments in Tavernier, Key
Largo, Islamorada and Monroe
County responded to the scene.
The fire burned for more than
an hour. Units were on site at the
Hood Avenue complex, off mile
marker 91.6, until nearly mid-
night.
Residences near the facility
were evacuated for safety.
.Residents were allowed to return
home around 10 p.m.
Two men were taken into cus-
tody by Monroe County Sheriff's
Office deputies on charges that
they refused orders to stay away
from the scene.

Tavernier man
charged with theft

A Tavemier man is accused of
failing to install a dock and three
boat lifts after accepting mone-
tary deposits for the work.
The Monroe County Sheriff's
Office reports 43-year-old Donald
Wade Bruce told people his busi-
nesses were called Keys Cat 5,
and Hurricane Boat Lifts.
Sheriff's Detectives have investi-
gated four cases where Bruce


signed contracts with people, took
their money, then failed to do the
work he was supposed to do.
Bruce allegedly collected
nearly $30,000 from people in
Grassy Key, Marathon and Key
Largo, who reported being
defrauded to the Sheriff's Office.
Detectives David Carey,
Kenneth Baker and Rick Martin
investigated, finding no permits
were ever applied for, nor did
Bruce have a business license in
his name.
Bruce was arrested Wed-
nesday and charged with four
counts of grand theft, two counts
of fraud, and, on outstanding
warrants, two counts of worthless
-checks, violation of probation
and failure to appear in court.
He's being held in the Monroe
County Detention Center and
more charges are pending.

the committee still kept the
guidelines stringent by creating a
second tier-a list of requirements
that would most likely be deter-
mined when the applicants are
being interviewed.
Commissioners in the audi-
ence expressed gratitude to the
committee and commented on a
proposal from some committee
members regarding health ques-
tions.
Last Wednesday at the Search
Committee meeting, Commis-
sioner Clayton Lopez said that
the committee is not authorized to
ask an applicant about their
health unless it is directly linked
to what how they will perform
their job's responsibilities.
However Commissioner Jose
Menendez said it was important
to keep all of these things in
mind, but stated that the require-
ments should not be too strict.
"This is not a monastery,"
Menendez said to the committee.
"And not all of the applicants are
monks."
City Attorney Shawn Smith
said that ultimately, these kinds of
concerns will not have a place in
the criteria.
"Generally, the question has to


be related to a specific job func-
tion," Smith said in an interview.
"When push comes to shove on
their criteria, it won't involve any
age, health, or lifestyle issues."
At the committee decided to
strike the requirement of five
years organizational budgeting
because, they said it would prob-
ably fall under the required 10
years of management.
Discussion also arose over the
requirement that the applicant
have experience working in a
diverse community, which was
proposed by committee member,
Police Chief Bill Mauldin.
"I have never lived in a more
diverse community than I have in
Key West," Mauldin said. "We
need to ensure that the person
coming here does have an appre-
ciation for the city."
Committee member David
Paul Horan said he didn't under-
stand how it would be possible to
define "diverse."
Mauldin also mentioned the
possibility of using a computer
voice-stress analysis test, similar
to a polygraph test, which he said
would require asking no lifestyle
questions with the exception of
drug use.

Hospital on the cutting edge


Homestead facility
now high-tech,
family-friendly
By JOHN DORSCHNER
jdorschner@MiamiHerald.com

Homestead's new million-
dollar-a-bed hospital not only
has the latest CT scan machines
and ultra-moder operating
rooms, but if you want to stay
overnight with a patient, you can
sleep in a chair that folds out into
the bed or sit at a desk and hook
up your laptop to the Intemet.
These were some of the high-
lights unveiled Thursday, when
Homestead Hospital executives
provided two Miami Herald
staffers with the first view jour-
nalists have gotten of the inside
of the 120-bed, $135 million
facility scheduled to open in
early May.
Workers were still performing
finishing touches, drills buzzing
to install light fixtures in the
soaring three-story entrance,
small screwdrivers adjusting a
$1.5 million, 64-slice CT.
Many areas even in inten-
sive care have windows, on
the theory that natural light gives
a healing effect, along-with sub-
dued blues and beiges on the
walls and floors.
The facility, on suburban
Campbell Drive, replaces an
aging and overcrowded building
in central Homestead. The old
hospital, serving many poor and
uninsured patients, has been a
money loser for years for its
owner, Baptist Health South
Florida, and the system expects
to lose perhaps $30 million this
year on the new and old
Homestead facilities.
But the southern part Miami-
Dade County, booming with
development and flush with
plenty of open space for more, is
likely to provide an ever-grow-
ing patient base for the hospital.
Its closest competitor is Jackson
South, a public hospital 18 miles
away.
The Homestead facility is
built for expansion. With 40
acres already taken by the main
facility and medical office build-
ing, 20 acres remain for future
development.
Chief Executive Bill Duquette
says the five-story facility is
designed so that wings can easily
be added, which would allow it
to grow to 350 beds.

Storm ready
Homestead. Hospital is
desigppd to. withstand Category 5
hu~rieaness Project manager


Nelson Roque said that storm
reinforcement added 10 to 15
percent to the building's cost, but
since the Baptist system is essen-
tially self-insured for wind dam-
age, the design could save money
in the long run.
Efforts to strengthen hurri-
cane protection could also help
patients. With generators and
underground fuel tanks, the hos-
pital is prepared to continue
operating independently for five
days after the strongest storm.
For emergency room patients
who have spent hours in the pres-
ent Homestead waiting room or
on carts in the narrow hallways
of its ER treatment areas, the
new facility will seem like a
palace, with multiple waiting
rooms for adults and children.
The new ER has 44 beds, each in
its own private room com-
pared to 22 beds in a cramped
common area.
In event of natural disasters
anything from bird flu to hur-
ricanes each ER room is set


up with double supplies of oxy-
gen and other necessary services,
meaning the area could quickly
start serving 88 patients.
The new ER is connected to
the hospital's radiology depart-
ment, so patients can get an X-
ray or a CT scan without being
wheeled to a different area of the
hospital, as happens now.
The entire hospital is digital-
ized. A doctor in a fourth-floor
patient wing can instantly see the
results of an X-ray online and
can order a prescription at a com-
puter terminal.

McClatchy Tribune

Expect rising gasoline prices
in the weeks ahead Oil prices
jumped $1.95 a barrel Thursday
and $3.20 over the past two days
amid seasonal shutdowns at U.S.
refineries and escalating tensions
in the Persian Gulf.
Oil prices settled at $66.03 at
the close of trading Thursday on
the New York Mercantile
Exchange, the highest closing
price since last September.
Among them are U.S. refinery
shutdowns to switch to producing
summer fuels, a strike in France
that's affecting European sup-
plies and oil traders' fears that
Middle East tensions could erupt
into violence.
An outbreak of fighting could
sefid prices to record highs.
"'If Iran closes off the Strait of
Hormuz, it could go even high-
er,"' he said, suggesting Iran may


be provoking a crisis to drive up
oil prices and boost its economy.
"Clearly they are going to try to
get some mileage out of it."
For motorists, this means
gasoline prices will remain high
and probably go higher. The
nationwide average for a gallon
of regular unleaded Thursday
was $2.62, a March record,
according to the AAA motor
club. That's up from $2.37 a gal-
lon a month ago and $2.50 a gal-
lon a year ago.
"Usually the increase is not
this early in the year, so that's a
bit of a disappointment,"' said
Mike Pina, a spokesman for
AAA in Washington. "We're still
not at the point where we were at
$3 a gallon last summer. When it
gets that high, people start
rethinking their travel plans."


Suppliers respond


HENS / From 20

from hens that are not confined to
small cages. That percentage
should more than double by the
end of 2007.
"That is a huge portion of
cage-free eggs available for pro-
cessing as most cage-free eggs go
into the retail grocery business,"
Weiffenbach wrote in his March
14 letter.
Hoping to pressure suppliers
and increase availability, Burger


King has told egg suppliers that it
will look favorably on cage-free
eggs when making purchasing
decisions.
"Suppliers will hopefully
respond by producing more of
these types of products," Prescott
said.
Burger King will also give
purchasing preference to poultry
suppliers that use or switch to
"controlled atmosphere stun-
ning,", which animal rights
groups consider the most humane
way to slaughter poultry.

Plant leaves


turning brown?


Consider many
environmental
conditions
By KIM GABEL
Keynoter Contributor

At the Monroe County
Extension Service, we often
receive leaf samples with
browned edges accompanied
by a homeowner who is con-
cerned their plant is diseased
and dying.
The first thing we rule out is
disease attacking the leaf
because most leaf diseases are
going to occur somewhere on
the interior leaf part. It is rare
exception when leaf diseases
attack only the leaf edge and
cause it to turn brown or roll
under.
Brown-edged leaves are
usually due to environmental
stress. Since the leaf is part of
the plant exposed to the air, if
there is a long dry spell or there
is a lot of wind, leaf edges can
become brown simply from
severe drying. Such desiccated
leaves usually turn yellow and
then drop off. If dryness is
involved, it is usually the oldest
leaves that drop first. If, how-
ever, the plant is exposed to
winds that have salt spray in
them and the plant has low salt
tolerance, then the new and old
leaves both will be severely
browned.
One of the most frequent
reasons for leaf edges to turn
brown is due to a root problem.
Whenever there is an interrup-
tion with the plant's water
uptake, such as occurs when a
plant is losing roots, the leaves
are not able to get all the water
they need to carry on their nat-
ural functions. Roots. become
oxygen starved and die, caus-
ing the leaves furthest from the
roots (i.e. the edges) to dry first
and eventually the leaves will
drop off.
Root loss can be attributed
to many different factors and
the plant owner must determine
which ones are causing the
plant's decline. If your tree or
shrub is planted in black muck
soils, planted too deeply, or soil
has been added over the roots
long after they have become
adapted to a certain planting
depth, the roots can develop an
aeration problem. If you begin
driving over the .roots, or.doing
some other activity to compact
the soil (mixing concrete), or if


you build a patio or put black
plastic film near the plant, you
can also cause aeration prob-
lems.
A plant near a roof or other
water collection surface that
dumps it the water in one loca-
tion, can create suffocating
conditions for the plant. Plants
located in low areas of the yard
where water stands or where
washing machine water is
being discharged will many
times develop root decline.
Watch where you put your
chemicals, it can bur the plant
leaves. In our soils, using any
weed killer that is absorbed
into the ground and acts to
"exclude" weeds from growing
is one that should not be used.
Because our soils are low in
organic matter and rather hard,
such chemicals run over the
surface of the ground with the
first rain faster than they are
soaked into the ground.
Also, many trees, since they
have trouble going into the
ground at any depth, have sur-
face root systems traveling a
long distance outside their drip-
line.
Hardly any area on your
property will be without some
root system. Therefore, weed
killers usually end up killing
desirable plants more often
than they ever satisfactorily
control the weeds. Roots dying
from, chemicals will again
cause brown leaf edges.
Many chemicals beside
weed killers can kill roots.
Muriatic acid and chlorine
bleach, both used on sidewalks,
swimming pools and hot tubs
are toxic to plants. Instruct pool
maintenance people not to put
drain waste into the garden area
and to keep pool and hot tub
drains away from yards and
directed towards storm drains.
Even fertilizer, if applied
near the tree trunk will kill
major roots. Always apply fer-
tilizer by spreading it out
towards the ends of the branch-
es or fronds of the plant, where
feeder roots are concentrated.
For more information relat-
ing to landscaping problems,
contact the UF/IFAS/Monroe
County Extension Service,

Key West, call 292-4501 or e-

"We're on a roll," declared
Coral Shores baseball coach
Jeff Meyers.
The Hurricanes overtook
Rockledge High School in'a 7-
5 win Wednesday, giving
Coral Shores three victories in
three days during a Spring
Break tournament in
Islamorada.
"This team just likes play-
ing the game," Meyers said.
"We've had teams in the past
that folded the tent when they
got down a couple runs. Now
[trailing] means nothing.
These guys always think they
can win."
The Canes also blanked
Archbishop Curley, 9-0, and
beat Marathon High School,
8-1, in the round-robin tourna-


ment.
Coral Shores went 8-2 dur-
ing the month of March and
returns from spring break with
an 11-5 overall record. Nine
games remain in the regular
season.
"It's not like we're beating
the Little Sisters of the Poor,"
Meyers said. "These are good
teams we're playing."
Rockledge's Raiders brou-
ght an 11-6 record from
Brevard County, including
wins of ranked teams.
The Raiders rallied in the
fourth inning Wednesday to
grab the lead at 5-2.
The Hurricanes answered
in the fifth with their own
three-run rally. Third baseman
Chris. Noble delivered a two-
run single after Brett Smith

Key West High School ath-
letes are still excelling on the
field.
Seniors Hali Lombardi,
Zoe Vincent, Brooks
Saunders and Odone Pierre
represented the south region
in the Florida Athletic
Coaches Association all-star
games last weekend in Merritt
Island. They were selected by
the FACA, which puts on the
only state-level all-star games
to -honor senior players.
"Having two representa-

Key West girls coach Scott
Paul. "This is a big compli-

grams."
Lombardi and Vine.t,
who grew up together playing
soccer on Big Pine Key, were
standouts on the 18-10 Conch

regional quarterfinals.
The high-scoring Saunders
and Pierre, a defender, were
two of the top players on the

Key West looks

Break games
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Key West High School cen-
ter fielder Michael Arencibia
hit a two-run home run in tte
sixth inning and Daniel Foltz
pitched a complete game
Thursday night as the Conchs
defeated Zephyrhills, 4-2, in
the final game of their Spring
Break trip to the Tampa area.
The Conchs were 2-1 on the
trip and improved their record
to 11-6. Last season, Key West
lost all of its three Spring Break
games.
Trailing 2-1, the Conchs ral-
lied in the sixth inning when


Frankie Ratcliff drew a walk
and scored on Arencibia's
homer against 6-foot-6 fresh-
man Tyler Guy. The blast over
the right-field fence atoned for
a two-run error Arencibia had
made in the fourth.
The Conchs increased their
lead to 4-2 when Artie
Grizzle's ground-ball fielder's
choice drove in Alfred
Rahming, who was running for
Kyle Lepine after a leadoff
double.
It was Grizzle's 16th RBI of
the season. His 15th had come
in the third inning when he
walked with the bases loaded.
That run gave the Conchs a 1-0
lead.

Dolphins resume

Marathon clashes
with Conchs,
'Canes this week
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

Seasons for Marathon High
School spring sports will resume
after Spring Break this week,
starting with the Dolphins tennis
squad hosting the' strong
Hurricanes of Coral Shores at 3
p.m. Monday.
The Dolphins softball team
will travel to Key West for a 5
p.m. game on Tuesday before
hosting Coral Shores at 4 p.m.
Wednesday.
Marathon's baseball season
also resumes with a home game
I
'We owe
Key West a
little
something,
and we for
darn sure
owe Coral
Shores
something.'
Marathon softball head coach
Jason Frank
against La Salle at 7 p.m. Monday
and then another home game
against Miami Country Day at 4
p.m. Wednesday.
While all the games are crucial
for the Marathon teams that are
nearing the end of the regular sea-
son and preparing for district
competition, the softball game
will have some extra weight, said
coach Jason Frank.
"We want to be the queens of
the Keys," Frank said. "We owe
Kby West a little something, and
we for darn sure owe Coral
Shores something. It's our house
now, and we got to defend it."
Earlier. in March, Marathon
gaveup a flurry of last-inning hits
to the Conchs, who walked out of
Marathon with the 18-8 win.
That came after the Dolphins
were leading the Hurricanes 3-0
into the final inning, when Coral
Shores knocked in four runs to
claim the win.


ite

I a


"I hope [Coral Shores] said
thanks, because we handed it to
them;" Frank said after the loss.
But Marathon (8-5) has since
gelled into a formidable opponent
behind the consistent pitching of
Megan Gardner, good defense in
the field and solid hitting from
Shelby Kuck, Sandahl Stephens,
Abi Meyer and Alexis Culver.
Frank said he wants to use
these two Keys rivalry games to
prepare for a strong showing in
the District 16-2A tournament.
The Dolphins baseball squad,
however, is simply looking for a
win to end a dismal six-game los-
ing streak that began with an 8-5
loss to Coral Shores on March 5.
Marathon (2-8) has been get-
ting solid play from pitcher Toby
Eigner and hitters Sean O'Connor
and J.P. McCabe, although coach
Luis Leal said he needs to see
more effort from the entire team
and a-cut down on the errors.
"We just need to come out
with a fire and a desire to play and
not just go through-the motions,"
coach Luis Leal said. "We have
the talent. It's just a matter of exe-
cuting everything right and want-
ing to be there."
But while the baseball team is
looking to win once again, the
tennis Dolphins are looking to get
their first win of the season,
which will be tough against the
Canes.
Marathon's boys (0-7) lost 6-1
to Coral Shores, while the Lady
Fins (0-9) fell 0-7 back on March
13.
Following the Coral Shores
rematch on Monday, the Dolphins
will head to Key West for the
annual Conch Cup tournament
that begins at 8 a.m. Friday.

Babich, Yochum


lead Conchs to win


Key West now
3-1 in district,
host game today
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor .

Junior left-fielder Kristen
Babich drove in three runs
and make a sparkling catch to
lead the Key West High
School softball team to a 4-2
victory over St. Brendan in a
District 16-4A game Tuesday
in Miami.
The victory improved Key
West's record to 11-6 overall
and 3-1 in districts.
It was the fourth consecu-
tive victory over two seasons
for the Conchs against St.
Brendan pitcher Tamaro
Hidalgo; they beat her, 17-0,
on Feb. 28.
"She was much improved
over the first time," said Key
West coach David Gootee.
Lindsay Yochum pitched
the complete-game victory for
the Conchs, though she strug-
gled. She had only three
strikeouts, all in the fourth
inning.
"She didn't have her best
stuff but she kept them off
balance," Gootee said. "And
we didn't make a single
error."
It was the second errorless
game for the Conchs this sea-
son the other was a 4-0 vic-
tory against Monsignor Pace -
and ended a spell of poor
fielding.
The Conchs got. off to a 2-0
lead in the first inning.
Victoria Commander tripled
and scored when Heather
Palladino reached base on an
error. Babich later drove in
Palladino for the second run.
St. Brendan came back in
the bottom of the inning to tie
the score with help from
Yochum, who walked one bat-
ter, hit another and made a
wild pitch.
Key West scored what
turned out to be the deciding


runs in the second when
Commander and Palladino,
who had both singled, scored
on Babich's bloop single over
third base.
The Sabres threatened in
the fifth, but with two runners
on and two outs, Babich
charged in to snag a line drive


'(Yochum)

didn't have

her best

stuff but she

kept them

off balance

...And we

didn't

make a

single

error.'

Key West softball head coach
David Gootee
and end the inning.
After the game, a coin flip
was held between Key West
and Pace to determine the No.
1 seed for the mid-April dis-
Strict tournament.
"We called tails," said
Gootee, referring to himself
and athletic director Judd
Wise. "And it was heads."
That means the Conchs
will have to play St. Brendan
again in the district semifi-
nals. If they win, they will
place Pace for the district title
and also be assured of going
on to the regional tournament.
The Conchs will play
Riverdale at 11 a.m. today in
me conclusion of a two-game
series at the Back Yard. They
will host Marathon at 5 p.m.
Tuesday.

views, decision making,
and action; and that
these responsibilities
have been satisfied. The
legal effect of the certif

its responsibilities under
the National Environ-

cation was not in fact ex-
ecuted by the Certifying
Officer of DCA; (b) that
the responsible entity's
Environmental Review
Record forthe project in-
dicates omission of a re-
quired decision, finding
or step applicable to the
project in the environ-
mental review process;
(c) the grant recipieriw

not authorized by 24 CFR
Part 58 before approval
of a release of funds by
HUD; or (d) another Fed-

ant to 40 CFR Part 1504

quest for release of funds
and certification, or within
the time period specified,
whatever is later. Poten-

GlowFur: must have for Fantasy Fest


'm frequently amused by
marketing spam that sneaks
into my Keynoter e-mail: the
Viagra ring, the Puppy Purse, the
Cone... But never do I say "I
want one of those."
Until this week.
"Stand out and light up the
night with GlowFur!" the subject
line yelled out at me as I culled
through the weekend stack-up
Monday morning.
The faux-fur apparel line
offers men and women's coats,
leggings (uh, not so much in the
Keys, right?) and accessories
such as bikinis, purses,
miniskirts and boas, all of which
scream Duval Street.
"GlowFur accessories are
comprised of patent pending
technology that pairs fur and
light to provide an amazing dis-
play of glowing apparel," the
release explained. "The fur and
lighting combination is achieved
via special internal lighting to
the fur, which creates the glow-
ing effect. The dramatic and col-
orful glow, activated by flipping
a switch located in an interior
pocket, is best noticed in dimin-
ished lighting. It can last
throughout the night and is guar-
anteed to leave an indelible
impression on everyone in its
presence."
And, on the Web site, Keys
clientele can probably surf both
the men and women's sections
for different events and demo-
graphics. By that, I mean drag
queens will love this stuff.
You can't get the full effect
from a black-and-white photo on

Do what you wanna do.
This week's story about
Robert Ortiz is partly my story.
Not in that I wrote it, but in that
he was my unofficial welcome to
the Keys, too. No, I did not ride
the bus. After my Keynoter inter-
view, we went to the Banana
Bay Tiki Bar (rest in peace) for
drinks. It was karaoke night.
I met Robert, Who then sang
my song. The song I sang into
my hairbrush hundreds of times

as a kid. The song I had on 45
and LP and played on my little
plastic turntable. The song I put
on boots to dance along to -
"These Boots are Made for
Walkin'."
I was a little miffed that this


person who seemed to be some
strange cross between Jimi
Hendrix and Aretha Franklin had
stolen my favorite karaoke song,
but then he turned out to be so
nice, I got over it.
Now, three years later,
Robert's always good for a smile
and a wave as he wheels by on
his trike.
And when my husband Keith
sings "It's Your Thing" around
the house, he's not singing the
Isley Brothers, he's singing
Robert singing the Isley
Brothers.
Some call the song a feminist
anthem, and whether that's true
or not, the lyrics are fitting for a
guy like Robert and the live-and-
let-live attitude that is the Keys.

Art lovers take a walk in balmy breeze


Hundreds crowd
historic street for
Night on White
he third Thursday of
March was a balmy
evening; the kind of nights
Key West is famous for.
Certainly, we are not famous for
our beaches, which have
declined miserably as the island
has "upscaled."'
So, sur-

Judi Bradford onto White

The White Street
Chiropractic Healing Center
hosted a handful of artists show-
ing their figure sketches.
Remarkable drawings by Anne
Marie Giordano, Margaret
Brown and Frankie Zeh were
crowed into hallways, looking
great nevertheless.
The decrepit but still func-
tioning La Dichosa Bakery was
closed by evening but was still
the hangout for seven Cubanos
and a white cockatoo.
A teeny (I'd estimate 90
square feet) gallery of wheel-
thrown pottery was a marvel of
optimism. Mirrors reflected the
ice cream colors of the glazed
clay, and the 3- by 4-foot win-
dow tempted passersby to find
the door on the side and wait


their turn to stand inside and talk
to the artist, Ken Peskett.
The sidewalk further down
was stage to a clarinetist in straw

one a yapping toy poodle.

the image.
Closing down my night with
some mahi-mahi souvlaki from
the sidewalk grill at White
Street Deli, I wandered in for
the "Pianimal" Barry Cuda's
last set.
His breaks were covered with
Billie Holliday tapes and while I
chatted with a good percentage
of the people I know in Key
West, the garden patio trans-
formed into Michael Shields'
new film venue.
A pre-video "wallpaper film"
reminded me of a non-abstract
version of the light shows at the
1960's Filmore West. I think it
reminded Cuda of the same era;
he did a very "trippy" number as
the film fluttered on the breeze-


animated screen. The film for
that evening was "All the
Vermeers in New York."

Stock Island
Inspired by local color, I wan-
dered through the maze that is
Stock Island for the photography
show at Gallery 007 on Shrimp

The photos were moving and
the roast pork and rice by
Hogfish Bar was superb.
Amy Culver's shots of Africa
made the tribal faces feel like
neighbors. Culver was wearing
one of the red striped cloths that
"her" tribe wears. She also wore
beaded jewelry from the tribe
she frequently visits.

Robert Ortiz: Middle Keys' unofficial ambassador


Bus riders get
warm welcome
in Marathon
By DICK CONKLIN
L'Attitudes Contributor

H e's got one of the most
recognizable faces in
town, standing every day
at the bus stop in front of the
Brass Monkey Lounge, greeting
disembarking passengers.
Robert Ortiz is Marathon's unof-
ficial ambassador to lost or
newly arrived travelers, offering
directions or suggestions for
people heading to Key West, the
mainland, or vacationing in the
Middle Keys.
What's his most frequent
question? That's easy "How
do I get to the Miami
International Airport?"
Robert quickly rattles off the
answer: "Take the northbound
bus to Florida City. Get off at
Wal-Mart and take the Number
38 bus to Dadeland. Now take
the Metro Rail to Roosevelt
Station. Go downstairs and wait
for the Number 37 or the 'J' bus
to the airport. Leave yourself at
least four and a half hours."
In addition to directions to
MIA, he says he also tells visi-

marker 50 in Marathon.


tors about local things to do
such as visiting Pigeon Key and
learning about the history of
Flagler's railroad. He directs
them to take a shuttle to Knights
Key and a tram to the island.
He knows his passengers
well. "Sixty-five percent are
from Dade County, coming
down here to work in Ocean
Reef, Tavemier, Hawk's Cay,
Key Colony Beach and
Marathon. Some work right here
at Winn-Dixie or K-Mart. Some


go on to Key West."
The New York native came
to Marathon by way of
Montgomery, Ala. and
Beaumont, Texas, where he
crewed on a merchant marine
ship carrying jet fuel to Port
Everglades. From there he
worked for a bus company in
Florida City giving out sched-
ules and other information.
"I heard about the Keys from
some friends," he says. "They
called it paradise. That sounded


pretty good to me."
So in 1999 Robert put his
backpack and bike into the lug-
gage compartment of a JGT bus
and headed south.
"Somie days I work from 5:30
am to 11:30 or midnight. I'm
bilingual, so that helps a lot. I
also help out with lost and found
items and assist senior citizens
with their wheelchairs."
His'job is a volunteer one,
earning tips from passengers and
bus drivers. Although he
receives food stamps and gets
some help with his medications,


he looks forward to the day
when his merchant marine
retirement benefits kick in.
He is homeless, sleeping in a
field "over by the airport." He
keeps his "place" picked up and
clean, and local police often
look in on him to make sure he
is OK. He has a battery-operated
TV to keep him company. He
cleans up and gets some meals
at Marathon's Higher Love shel-
ter, and. stays there overnight
when the weather turns bad. He

Meeting the Friendly family's hell dog


Bulldogs just
don't believe
in lucky pennies
Found a lucky penny, heads
up, at the Islamorada
Fishing Club. You've heard
the old saying, "see a penny
let it lie, you'll come to want
before you die."
I witnessed an exquisite
double rainbow shortly after
picking that penny up and
went on to survive not one but
two horrific brushes with death
over the weekend. I also
developed super-human
strength in one of the bouts,
which surprised the s*** out
of me. As a former National
Enquirer reporter, I am a proud
survivor of a few precarious
situations but living here in the
fabulous Florida Keys I've
practically alleviated that
world and left it far behind ...
or so I thought.
It all started Friday after-
noon when I picked up my
daughter Evangeline from her
friend's house in Tavernier.
Excited to see my kid, I went
be-boppin' up a flight of stairs
that lead to a lovely home over
looking the water. When I
reached the fourth stair from
the top, my head and shoulders
popped up over the platform
- I was standing at death's
door!
Frozen with fear, I couldn't
move up and I couldn't move
down the stairs. I was getting
ready to do battle with a
vicious snarling bulldog
crouched in the attack posi-
tion. We were both the enemy
and as it looked, there was
going be a blood bath.
Our eyes were deadlocked,
neither one of us was backing
down. My mind was racing so
fast an odometer couldn't


clock it.
He was
low growl-
ing, dis-
playing his
flesh rip-
ping
canines
and his
ears were
pinned
back. We
all know a
Sammie Mays dog can
sense fear
and instinctively react, so I
knew not to turn and run.
I also knew not to take my
eyes off him.. I thought to
calmly back down the stairs
but that would put me in a
more vulnerable position.
Head and shoulders high I was
at least a larger target; had I
backed down the stairs I would
have become a smaller more
defenseless target I was sure
he would attack.
The only weapon at my dis-
posal was my cell phone; it
crossed-my mind that I might
be able to trick the dumb beast
into playing fetch, so I consid-
ered throwing the phone. Then
I thought if he didn't go for it,
the rapid movement might
trigger an attack, so I changed
my mind.
Having been blessed with
exceptional hand to eye coor-
dination, I thought about lit-
ting him right between the
eyes with it, but what if.he is
as hard headed as he looks? It
might have just bounced off
his square head and, of course,
trigger an attack.
OK, so now the immediate
plan became this: When the
gargoyle goes for my head, I
would gouge his eyes out,
hoping the brute would release
me. Then I thought to remove
my sombrero-style gonzo-girl
hat and throw it like a Frisbee,


but, same scenario. What if he
doesn't buy it, the movement
may trigger an attack.
"I know," I thought. "I'll
use my hat as a glove and -
when he opens that large gap-
ping hole of a mouth, I'll ram
it down his throat." Again, not
a good idea. I was afraid to
raise my hand and take the
damn thing off my head for
fear my movement would
cause him to ... OK, you get
the point.
'I had just about run out of
ideas, when I thought maybe,
like the U.S. negotiating with
the North Koreans, I could be
diplomatic and talk him out of,
this volatile situation.
Mimicking the dog's angry
tone, in a low, stern don't-
make-me-kick-your-butt voice,
I growled, "You don't really
want to do that now do you?"
He bared more teeth; he
showed more gums, his growl
deepened and lengthened and
his ears practically disap-
peared behind his rock hard
head.
I decided it was time to kill
or be killed. I so would have
preferred it to had been Miller
time!
Actually, I had planned on a
much more subdued evening;
like picking up Evangeline and
rewarding her for making the
honor role at PKS this semes-
ter; having a mother/daughter
sunset dinner in Key Largo on
the dock of .the Pilot House
Restaurant. Having my head
used as a chew toy by a bull- /
dog was not in the plans.
With only a glimmer of
hope left, still staring into his
eyes, trying to remain cool,
with a low, deep, forceful
voice, ventriloquist-style, I
called for help. "Come to the
damn door and open it NOW!
Come to the damn door NOW!
Open the damn door NOW!


"One more minute please,"
someone replied calmly.
Finally, after what seemed
to be a year in purgatory with
hell dog, the Friendly family
casually walked my daughter
to the door. The vicious animal
began wagging his tail and
Evangeline bent down and
gave him a hug.
I crumpled like a piece of
old aluminum foil.
The family patted their best
friend on the head and told
him what a good boy he was.
Ignoring me completely, he
wagged his tail faster and
drooled.
When I told them they have


an evil killer attack dog, the
Friendlies said their precious,
loveable pooch hated the
gonzo-girl hat.
And you know what friends
and neighbors? After that near
death experience, so do I.
I had another near-death
experience right after that, far
worse than the first, but I'm
going to have to save that for
my next column. Finally, it
really is Miller time.

Reef tour of
Caribbean comes
to Tropic Cinema
L local filmmakers premiere
a coral-reef film, "Waters
of Wonder," at the Tropic
Cinema, 416 Eaton in Key
West, on Tuesday. The opening
reception is at 6 p.m. and the
screening is at 8 p.m. Tickets


are $9 at the door; $6 for film
society members.
Audience members of all
ages will this in-depth tour of
the wonders of Caribbean coral
reefs by Joel Biddle, former
Reef Relief educational director,
and filmmaker Tom Jackson.
The movie incorporates
selections from 18 years of
video footage of Caribbean
reefs, by Jackson, of Key West's
Seascapes Productions, accom-
panied by Biddle's text and
original music score.
Biddle and Jackson have
collaborated for years on-proj-
ects. Jackson's first film,
"Seascapes I7," was a corer-
stone of Biddle's educational
programs for Reef Relief.
Biddle and Jackson produced a
fish identification guidebook
called "Reef-life of the Greater
Caribbean" (currently being
considered by Knopf
Publishing). Jackson also filmed
several coral-reef presentations
by Biddle for Reef Relief that
are featured on www.pic
slit.com, an educational Web
site.
'Waters of Wonder' fills a
need that we both have to share
the beauty of coral reefs we
have experienced during our
lifetimes," Biddle said.
Jackson said he and Biddle
have taken great care to portray
what can only be described as a
magical world.
"We feel the images and col-
ors shown in the film truly
reflect what we both have felt
through our experiences of div-
ing, not only locally, but
throughout the Greater
Caribbean," Jackson said.
Because he was so familiar


with Jackson's footage, Biddle
was able to write a fully com-
pleted script that, afterwards,
was brought to life through
Jackson's editing. A fully
orchestrated film soundtrack
track by Biddle (who lived in
Europe for 18 years as a com-
poser and conductor) gives
added dimension to the film.
The result affords viewers an
opportunity to experience the
incredible impact of coral reefs:
what they are and how they
work.
"Understanding coral reefs is
a vital first step to save them,"
Jackson said. "We want 'Waters
of Wonder' to be the best it can
be. That's why this screening in
a state of the art theater is so
important."
To reach as many people as
possible, Biddle and Jackson
are designing a series of full
color, underwater action menus
for an interactive question-and-
answer section for a student
version plus a creature ID ver-
sion for divers.
The duo will demonstrate
their educational and identifica-
tion components of "Waters of
Wonder" on May 1 at 7:30 p.m.
at the Florida Keys Eco-
Discovery Center as part of the
Mel Fisher Maritime Museum
Lecture Series.
Admission to the lecture
series is free.
"'Waters of Wonder' is a
labor of love," Biddle said.
"Everything you will see to this
point was accomplished without
one cent from any organization
or foundation. We feel this is a
blessing because we had no
deadlines or restrictions on con-
tent."

Helmerich to head the Tropic Cinema


Cooper stepping
down, two new
members added
The Key West Film
Society has announced
it's made a number of
changes to its Board of
Directors.
At his request, longtime
chairman George Cooper will
be stepping down from that
position and turning the gavel
over to Matthew Helmerich,
who joined the board as a new.
member in January.
Helmerich is a full-time resi-
dent of Key West and has been
a visible supporter of art and
charitable activities for a num-
ber of years, is former chairman
of Hospice & Visiting Nurses
Association of the Florida
Keys, and serves on the boards
of the Community Foundation
and the Performing Arts
Centers of Key West.
He works as public informa-
tion officer for State Attorney
Mark Kohl and has a lot of
experience working in commu-
nications, both with the press
and the public.
"I am excited about bringing
Matthew into the leadership of
the Film Society," Cooper said.
"I told the board last year that I
wanted to step down before my
70th birthday, which is coming
up in May. This is my wish
come true. During the past five
years, a core group of our board
has built and established the
Tropic Cinema as a glorious
addition to the local cultural
scene. It's now time for the
stewardship of this institution
to be turned over to fresh faces.
It's been our baby, but now it's
grown up."
In addition to Helmerich, the


| board has also
voted in two
other new
members,
Judith Daykin
and Evan
Corns.
Daykin is
seasonal resi-
COOPER dent of Key
West and a
retired arts administrator, hav-
ing served the cultural commu-
nity in New York for more than
30 years as Executive Director
of New York's City Center, the
Brooklyn Academy of Music
(BAM), and the Paul Taylor
Dance Company.

and opera-
tional steps

HELMERICH lish the
Tropic as a mature institution
and to enable the Film Society

Corns is also a seasonal resi-
dent and a committed patron of
the arts in Key West, including
the Tropic and the Tennessee
Williams Theater. He has exten-
sive management, financial and
fundraising experience as a
trustee of Ohio Wesleyan
University and the Western
Reserve Land Conservancy.
He will assume a major role
in fundraising for the film soci-
ety.

Helmerich said of his new posi-
tion. "We have George and the
founding Key West Film


Society Board to thank for that.
I look forward to my new

Rosburg: taking flight


Colorado artist
brings nature
pieces to Keys
Regan Rosburg's one
woman exhibition of
paintings opens Monday
at Gingerbread Square Gallery in
Key West with a reception from
5:30 to 8:30 p.m. The show runs
through April 8.
Rosburg-synthesizes multime-
dia by incorporating oil, acrylic,
paper, photography, and found
objects with layers of images
and text. Her work is intricate
and gradual, appearing seamless
but actually a delicate balance
between calculated planning and
spontaneous creativity.
The interaction between the
natural world and the man-made
world is deeply ingrained in her
work, as is how society and

sitive, she explores them through
a yielding, appreciative, organic
lens.
Rosburg graduated from the
University of Colorado with a
bachelor's in fine arts in 2000
and now teaches painting and
drawing. She travels to Asia and
Central America for inspiration.
"I have an idea in mind
before I begin the painting, and I
take great pleasure in the process
of exploring that concept,"
Rosburg said. "I will do a lot of
research on my subject matter. I


enjoy the challenging materials I
work with, both the small mar-
gin for error and the intensity of
the method. This process is bal-
anced with quiet time shooting
photographs, drawing patterns
and sketching insects with metic-
ulous anatomical detail."
She works on either canvas or
masonite, using water-based oils
and acrylic. She layers the works
by constantly adding and sub-
tracting on the surface to achieve
balance. To preserve the mys-
tery, Rosburg prefers to keep


some of the technical details of
the 3-D process a.secret.
Many types of paper and
fibers, a well as fabric, resin,
found objects, and moths and
butterflies are used. To ensure
precision, the she spreads the
species herself, or entrusts the
help of a trained entomologist.
Gingerbread Square is at
1207 Duval and is open from 10

'the Times' debuts


at waterfront


Entertainer got
idea for play
reading the paper
The Key West Players are
bringing the world pre-
miere of "the Times," by
local playwright and entertainer
Mark Watson to Key West's
Waterfront Playhouse, 604
Duval.
Opening April 4 and running
through April 14, "the Times" is
part of the ongoing mission of
The Key West Players to pro-
mote and present local play-
wrights.
Directed by Vanessa
McCaffrey, "the Times" stars
John Bixler, Cricket Desmarais,
Mimi McDonald and Scott
Shambaugh.
The play was part of last
year's "New Plays In May"
series featuring readings of
original plays by local play-
wrights. With Watson's snappy
dialogue, engaging characters
and intriguing plot twists, "the
Times" was the clear hit of the
series, earning a spot on this
year's season schedule.
Watson is one of the stars of
"Broadway 3 Ways" at La Te
Da and has performed in sever-
al Waterfront productions. He
also contributes his talents to
various local fundraisers and
events.
Watson said his inspiration


for "the Times" came when he
was perusing The Sunday
Times and saw a wedding
announcement for a particularly
striking couple. Their perfect
demeanor made him think,
"Their lives can't be all that
rosy there have to be some
skeletons in their closets."
. With that, he completed the
play within two weeks, just in
time for submission to the
series. In the meantime, he has
had several public readings,
helping him sharpen and focus
the play. He says he has "an
entire computer full of plays"
and plans to develop more the-
atrical pieces in the future.
McCaffrey was a seminal
force with the Key West
Theatre Festival, serving on the
board for the festival's duration
and directing several produc-
tions. She has appeared in and
directed several plays through-
out Key West: "Equus," "The
Lover," "Talking Heads,"
"Dancing At Lughnasa," "Don't
Dress For Dinner," and pro-
duced her play (co-written with
Tony Konrath) "Easy Come" as
a part of the Key West Theatre
Festival. She is the owner and
manager of Vacation Key West.

Taking the bus to karaoke hot spots


ROBERT /From 5

gets around town by carrying
his belongings on a three-
wheeled bike.
But Robert's life isn't all
buses and passengers. During


the week he is also a karaoke
entertainer, singing on Mondays
at the Key Deer Bar and Grill on
Big Pine Key and on Tuesdays
and Wednesdays at Boondocks
on Ramrod Key..
"I do pretty well," he says.
"A couple of weeks ago I came


in second place. By the time
they awarded the prize, I had
already left on the last bus,
which stops there at 10:15 pm.
But they held my $100 prize and
gave it to me the following
week."
"I sing and sometimes dance,"
he said. "I like Motown and rock
and roll. Stuff like KC and the
Sunshine Band, you know, like
'Get Down Tonight.'"
Robert tries to save a little
money so he can occasionally
get back to New York City. "I
graduated in 1973 from the
Food and Maritime Trades High
School. That's where I learned
my merchant marine job. That
school was built on an old
artillery ship docked at Pier 42,
by Morton Street. Our class-
rooms were in the cargo.hold of
the old John W: Brown. It is still
in commission today."
Robert is more than willing
to talk about his unusual sexual-
ity. "I was bor a hermaphrodite
in 1954," he says. Although they
called me a girl, I had dual sex-
uality. My momma paid $36,000
for surgery at Mount Sinai
Hospital when I was 13. That
made me 70 percent male, 30
percent female. I had hormone
shots twice a week as a teen-
ager."
"Some people prefer to call
me by my nickname 'Roberta,' "
he laughs. "That's OK. Hey, I'm
an open-minded guy!"

Java presents films
in the courtyard

Java Studios presents the
following films at the White St.
Deli Caf6, 1019 White St. in
Key West:
Monday, 8 p.m. "Rebels
With a Cause." Charting the
sweeping socio-political
changes of the 1960s that
began with the Civil Rights
movement and culminated with
angry protests against the U.S.
war in Vietnam, this film is told
through the eyes of the
Students for a Democratic
Society.
April 4, 8 p.m. "Cinema,
Aspirins, and Vultures." In the
1940s, in the middle of
Northeastern Brazil, two very

and Ranulpho, a rural Brazilian
seeking escape from the
drought.

TIMES / From 11

lege roommates who had a five-
year relationship before
Christian walked out on Noah.
Ten years later, when they meet
again, Christian has become a
successful business man and
announces he is getting married
to Nancy.
Despite his efforts to forget
Christian, Noah has never been
able to move beyond his feel-
ings and is completely thrown
by Christian's news. Dagmar,
Noah's roommate, is there to
give comfort with her tart, hilar-
ious observations on, well, just
about everyone and everything.
When Nancy, Christian's


fiance, shows up at Noah's door
to pass along some very inter-
esting news about Christian, the
fireworks really begin. Keen
observations and surprises
abound.

The cast
McDonald, the Red Barn
Theatre's managing director,
plays the saucy Dagmar.
McDonald has been in
numerous productions over the
years, including "Sordid Lives,"
"Nunsense," "Betty's Summer
Vacation," "Barbra's Wedding,"
"Memory of Water;" "Picasso
At The Lapin Agile" and others.
Bixler, and Equity actor from
Miami, plays the part of
Christian. His credits include
