allegations


Police chief accused
of harassing the

-By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Key West Police Chief Bill
Mauldin is stepping down fol-
lowing allegations he sexually
harassed city spokeswoman
Christie Phillips four or five
times in 2006..
The allegations came to light
just last week, and it was a quick
tumble for Mauldin, who had
been put on administrative leave
by City Manager Jim Scholl.
Capt. Donie Lee was named act-
ing chief.
Mauldin was filing the neces-


sary paper-

Tuesday and
according to
S city staff, City
Attorney
Shawn Smith
drafted a
report sum-
MAULDIN marizing the
findings of an
investigation the city conducted
into the harassment claims.
After that report was given to
Scholl, he and Mauldin met to
discuss Mauldin's resignation.

DCA again rejects county


Waterfront
law again
has problems
By ALYSON CREAN
.,crean@keynoter.com


The Florida Department of
Community Affairs on Monday
told Monroe County that parts of
a proposed ordinance to preserve
the working waterfront in the
Keys does not comply with state
statute.
The rejection came as no sur-
prise to County Commissioner
George Neugent.
"I felt this was going to hap-
pen," he said. "This was the cre-
ation of a fatally flawed ordi-
nance that was created-through
thoughtless actions of three
county commissioners and one
attorney."
Neugent's harsh criticism
comes from controversial
changes to the ordinance,
approved by commissioners
Dixie Spehar, Mario Di Gennaro
and Sonny McCoy, from last-
minute suggestions by attorney
Jerry Coleman, who represents
Robbie's Marina on Stock
Island.
The ordinance for unincorpo-


rated Monroe County moved
from being one that would have
protected the commercial fishing
industry to a hot potato outlining
the future development of only
Stock Island.
This is the second time DCA
has objected to the ordinance,
which has taken the better part
of two years to draft. In
December, DCA issued objec-
tions to a first incarnation stem-
ming from a lack of "data and
analysis" for many of the poli-
cies in the ordinance.
One of the more controversial
aspects has been the inclusion of
the. ability to build residential
units and hotel rooms on water-
front property that has been
zoned marine industrial.
The statement DCA issued
this week says allowing con-
struction of public lodging facil-
ities is inconsistent with county
policy that prohibits new tran-
sient residential units.
Some of the additions made
by Coleman are specifically
cited in DCA's objection. They
include measuring building
height from the base flood eleva-
tion, which could increase
heights above the county's 35-
foot restriction.


Coleman also added language
that would have exempted a pos-
sible new hotel on the Stock
Island waterfront from the coun-
ty's rate-of-growth ordinance,
which dictates the number of
building permits issued.
DCA noted that "exempting
development from the adopted
allocation systems is internally
inconsistent with the compre-
hensive plan because [county
policy] prohibits new transient
residential units including hotel
and motel rooms...."
New Stock Island Properties,
a group of developers, is looking
to redevelop land adjacent to the
island's deep-water port with
docks, retail space, a hotel and a
boardwalk connecting it all.
"I feel for the developers who
got caught up unfairly in this sit-
uation," Neugent said. "I'd like
to see if there's anything we can
do to work with DCA to move
forward while truly protecting
the working waterfront."
Mediation might be the
answer. According to the ruling,
people affected can seek media-
tion by filing a request with the
state's Division of
Administrative Hearings.
"It's all a matter of negotia-
tions now," Di Gennaro said.


Mauldin out as chief


MAULDIN / From 1

private behavior. It also states that
people in whom Phillips confided
offered their testimony during the
investigation.
The report also states Mauldin
categorically denies any miscon-
duct. Mauldin didn't return calls
for comment Tuesday.
Phillips said she will not press
charges against Mauldin and
declined further comment.-
City Commissioner Teri
Johnston said shefeels sympathy
for Phillips and that Mauldin's
resignation should speak loudly.
"We need to send a clear-cut
message to every department in
the city that this disgusting
behavior will not be tolerated
anywhere," Johnston said. "This
needs to be resolved quickly, and
we need to get back to protecting
the city."
Mauldin, who made
$122,818.80 annually, ended his


five-year contract early and will
receive .accrued sick and annual
leave time, but no severance ben-
efits, according to his contract.
The city's Human Resource
Department couldn't provide
those figures.
Then-City Manager Julio
Avael extended Mauldin's con-
tract in May 2007, giving him a
10 percent raise and other gener-
ous benefits, including a $125
monthly clothing allowance.,
Avael hired Mauldin when he
was the department's accredita-
tion manager in April 2005 to
replace Bill Fortune, who retired.
At first, he was credited with
cleaning up a department that
saw several officers themselves
in trouble with the law when Buz
Dillon was chief before Fortune.
But some city officials and
staff say the sexual-harassment
claim was the final straw and the
culmination of several recent
incidents, as Mauldin's been hit
with claims of mismanagement.


Also, two officers have sued the
department, claiming corruption.
The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement and the Police
Department's own Internal
Affairs Division are investigating
the department. The results of an
internal investigation should be
released soon.
"I think we have a great
department," Mayor Morgan
McPherson said. "I think we go
through some bumps in the road.
But the rank and file is still doing
one heck of a job."
As for Lee, City Com-
missioner Bill Verge said, "He's a
very sharp guy, a good cop. I
think he's well liked. But whoev-
er takes over the department has
some major cleanup to do."
Lee said Tuesday he was
unaware of Mauldin's job stand-
ing and if he would take over
immediately as permanent chief.
"I don't know what their plan
is really," he said. "I just want
this resolved."


Due to a reporting
error, Saturday's edition
listed the wrong finalists
for the job of Monroe
County administrator in
two stories. They should
have included Dennis
Kelly, deputy city manag-
er of North Miami. The
other candidates are
Roman Gastesi, Reggie
Paros and Patrick Salerno.

Prices soared to more than $8 a pound this season


LOBSTER /From 1

"There's a lot of stuff coming
down on the commercial fisher-
men," Piton said.
State biologists at the Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute will
receive end-of-season reports for
several weeks before confirming
the total estimated harvest for the
eight-month season that ended
March 31.
Last year's harvest came in
around 5.5 million pounds on
the low side of an average sea-
son, 6.3 million pounds.
The current year probably.
won't reach that level, Niles said.
Dockside prices that reached
$7 a pound for Florida lobster last
year went up another $1 or more
to over $8 a pound at times this
season.
Wholesale prices have risen
more than 50 percent since 2000.
An average legal-sized
Florida lobster weighs close to
one pound.
"That was a good thing,"


Keynoter photo by ALYSON CREAN
Yoslaine Reyes and Jose Morales repair lobster traps Tuesday on Stock Island after-what they
say has been a so-so season. Lobster season ended at midnight Monday.


Niles said. "Gas prices are clos-
ing in on $4 a gallon. Two years"
ago, I think we were paying less
than $2."
"Everybody seems pleased
with the prices," said Monroe
County Cooperative Extension
Service marine agency Doug
Gregory.
Monroe County accounts for
about half the state's 1,368 com-
mercial trap-fishing licenses.
There also are 152 licensed lob-
ster divers in the Florida Keys,
and 354 statewide.
About 1,200 families in the-
Florida Keys rely on lobster for a
significant portion of their
incomes, according to state fig-
ures.
Lobster is the most economi-
cally significant fishery to the,
local commercial fishing indus-
try.
All lobster harvests will
remain closed until the lobster
mini-season on July 30 and 31.
Then the eight-month regular
lobster season opens Aug. 6.

live here and what we have to
preserve."
Commissioner George
Neugent says it's unreasonable
to make such an -important
decision in just one day.
"This process, or what is
made to appear, a process, is so
insane and unfair," he said,
"not only to the applicants but
the voters of this county. In less
than a 24-hour period we're
going to hire a county adminis-
trator that as of [Tuesday] none
of us have ever seen."
Except one, he notes, since
Reggie Paros has worked for
the county for 30 years.
The other applicants are:
Dennis Kelly of North Miami,
Roman Gastesi of Miami and
Patrick Salerno of Sunrise..
"I don't know how much I.
can glean from one interview,"
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
said, "but the person I'd like to
see is one who cannot be
swayed be promises or threats.
Honesty is important."
She agrees with Neugent
that one day might not do the
trick.

"We don't need to be in a big

"I'm looking for a strong
individual that has good rela-
tions with other sections of the

Lobster

changes

on table

FWC to meet
next week for
consideration
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


A slate of lobster-rule changes
endorsed at a Key Largo meeting
in December will receive final
consideration at an April 10 hear-
ing in Tallahassee.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission meets
in regular session at the Ramada
Conference Center.
Three main lobster changes
will be considered:
Allowing crews on lobster
boats to pull traps for two per-
mits instead of one, a move
intended to allow boat mates to
start their own fishing business.
+ Reclaiming for the state
any lobster-trap certificates allo-
cated to a commercial trap fisher-
man but not purchased after two
years, instead of the current three
years of inactivity.
+ Banning the taking of any
egg-bearing lobster, regardless of
species.
FWC staff expected a more
substantial overhaul of lobster
rules to be finalized this year, but
disagreements between fishery
managers and lobster advisors
caused major changes to be put
off until 2009 at the earliest.
The most controversial issue
at the Key Largo meeting -
resuming a plan to reduce the
number of traps in the commer-
cial fishery was taken off the
table before debate began.
Other pressing issues, such as
the effect of more commercial
diving on the lobster fishery and
the possible legalization of artifi-
cial habitats for collection, was
set aside pending more research.
At the April 10 session, the
commission also will consider
extending the Stone Crab
Advisory Board to July 1, 2011;
and allowing the use of galva-
nized 16-gauge or thinner
degradable staples to construct
the degradable panel on wire
stone crab traps.

Keys Opinion


Let the sun set

on this time bill

Florida lawmakers may cancel Daylight Saving Time.
This is riot an April Fool's joke.
Last week, a Florida Senate committee on governmental
operations approved a bill that would permanently revoke the
spring and fall ritual of changing clocks by one hour.
Why, you ask?
Well, the best argument heard so far comes from a study of
Indiana utility use after the Hoosier State ended its holdout
against Daylight Saving Time.
Citing a University of California-Santa Barbara study, testi-
mony in the Florida Senate said household electricity usage
"increased by 1 to 4 percent after Indiana adopted Daylight
Saving Time in 2006 an additional cost of $8.6 million."
Of course, this flies in the face of the save-energy rationale
that underlies moving our clocks forward in the spring,
designed to shift daylight hours later in the evening. In theory,
that reduces energy usage as householders return from work.
The practice of changing clocks began in 1918, according to
a report in The Miami Herald, which notes that "U.S. politi-
cians borrowed the idea from their European allies to help con-
serve energy during World War I."
Alas, the populace was pretty unhappy with upsetting its bio-
logical clocks and Congress repealed Daylight Saving Time
shortly after the war ended.
It took another war World War II to resurrect the idea
that moving the clock would save utility costs. Only this time,
Congress allowed each state to make up its own mind on the
matter. Most did, but not all. Indiana was a holdout for the next
six decades.
There may be other reasons besides the debate over energy
savings that argue against the practice.
Geoff Hux, a sleep technologist at Mariners Hospital in
Tavernier, said ih the fall that "many people find it difficult to
adjust to the time change, both in the autumn and spring."
In the fall, he notes, the "earlier light exposure in the morn-
ing might cause people to wake up earlier. That could translate
into increased daytime sleepiness."
Before you lose any more sleep over the -thought of the
Florida Legislature tackling this controversial clock manage-
ment issue, rest assured. Even though the Senate bill appears to
be moving through committee, there is no companion bill in
the House.
That means, at least for now, we can put this Daylight Saving
Time repeal to bed and enjoy our later sunsets in the Keys.

Law firm's work is top notch for city


EDITOR:
I write concerning the recent news articles
concerning an effort to terminate the services
of the Monroe County School District's law
firm, Vernis & Bowling of the.Florida Keys,
and Dirk Smits, the managing'attorney of the
firm.
Our experience, with Mr. Smits and his
firm in Layton has been excellent. He and
his firm have constantly provided our city
with top-notch service over the past eight or
nine years and at a very reasonable cost. Two
examples in particular come to mind.
The first involved the U.S. Border Patrol
and its efforts to locate in our city, which the
citizens of Layton strongly opposed. Dirk
and his firm took on the federal government
on our behalf, ultimately resulting in a settle-
ment with the Border Patrol locating out of
our city. As has been said about this case, it
was a job well done.
Secondly, our city is proud to have a new


fully operational wastewater system with
only a few hookups still in process.
Obtaining funding for this project was no
easy task and more than $3 million in state
money was required to do the job. Frankly,
this money almost got away had it not been
for Mr. Smits' knowledge of government
procedure, quick thinking and professional
action on the city's behalf. I have publicly
credited him with saving those $3 million at
several of our City Council meetings.
In both these cases, and on a continuous
basis, the firm's history of working with so
many levels of other government entities has
provided us with legal representation far
beyond our means. Respectfully, I suggest
careful consideration of the Monroe County
School District losing the law firm Vernis &
Bowling of the Florida Keys. It may not real-
ize what a great deal it already has.
Mayor Norman Anderson
Layton


Studios of Key West a vibrant place for artists


EDITOR:
In just one year, the Studios of Key West
has become a well-respected center for the
arts and has added to the clout of Key West.
It is a space where individual artists can
enthusiastically come together with others
whoare creative and talented. This blend has
vitalized artists, local residents and visitors.
As tourism is our top resource, the Key
West visit must be unique and leave the trav-
eler knowing that everything here is new and
extraordinary.
What a great match. We are cosmopolitan
and open-minded. We offer vibrant street
life, live music venues, entertainment, fine
restaurants, a fabulous climate, eclectic
architecture and the Studios of Key West.

Most employees try
to make a difference
EDITOR:
Regarding the letter'from Charlotte Norris
about her experience at Winn-Dixie in
Tavernier, I would like to say that I am in
that store at least twice a week and my expe-
riences have been very different from hers.
I have found the employees eager to help
and pleasant. I always chat with the cashiers
and find them receptive to a pleasant cus-
tomer. I have also seen them exercise enor-
mous patience with unpleasant customers.
Perhaps we would all be better served if,
when an employee is unpleasant or rude in
any store, the customer goes immediately.to
the manager and reports it. That would give
the store the opportunity to correct the
employee's attitude immediately rather than
address it after the fact in the newspaper,
which also degrades those employees who

Government does us no favors


EDITOR:
Many of us have seen the cost of
living exceed our budget over the
past year or so and it appears the
end isn't in sight. Most of us have
worked hard for what we have and
maybe even managed to set money
or other investments aside for
retirement. As costs for all products
continue to go up, the money I
should have been able to set aside
:is going for increases in gas, utili-
ties, food, insurance and other nec-
essary products. So who's to
blame?
A few years ago, I wouldn't
have said this or felt this way, but
here goes.
Government has us in a war that
:should have been over three years
ago. No matter which side wins,
they are hard-core Islam and no
friends of ours, as anyone who has
taken the time to read the Quran
will know. The turmoil will contin-
ue. We will exit with body count
and debt.
Illegal immigration takes bil-
lions of dollars to sustain. Someone
is making big money on these well-
cared-for uninvited guests.
I don't know who owns or
financed the many ethanol plants in
operation, but they are paying top


dollar for corn that used to be rea-
sonably priced feed for livestock.
We have seen the results in the
supermarket. I suspect government
is involved somehow. I don't want
the government watching out for
me and I don't want a subsidy
check that was enabled by borrow-
ing billions from China. I want to
be able to work a job that pays a
fair wage so I can plan for the
future. If I want to sell my home, I
expect there to be buyers who can
afford to buy. I do expect govern-
ment to do the job we pay it to do.
Stop sending aid to foreign
countries that don't support us at
the United Nations. Stop taking
better care of illegal immigrants
than our veterans. Allow us to find
an alternative to fossil fuels with
hydrogen and electricity. Start
watching your budget as we have
to. Protect us from terrorists by
securing our borders and send the-
bad guys who are here packing.
Close many of the hundreds of mil-
itary bases we have around the
world that are no more than another
source of foreign aid.
We are having to try harder;
government should do the.same.

Wider U.S. 1 would limit walkability


EDITOR:
On March 12, the Island of Key
Largo Federation of Homeowners
Associations hosted a meeting with'
the Department of Transportation
to publicly discuss the depart-
ment's plan for adding a 10-foot
shoulder to the northbound lanes of
U.S. 1 from mile marker 92.5 to
106. A few days after that meeting,
there was a commentary in a local
paper describing that meeting as
being hostile.
SI presided over that meeting for
the federation and treated the DOT
officials and consultants with the
utmost respect, which they deserve.
The project itself, though, took a
beating and it was evident the last
thing the residents want to see is
more pavement.
There has been some discussion
about confrontation. Let me just
say that it is the responsibility of
the government to face the people
and seek input on proposed gov-
ernment actions. It is this process
that helps validate government
actions. The alternative is a gov-
ernment insulated from the people
and public debate.
The citizens of Key Largo came
together years ago in a series of
meetings to put down on paper


their vision of Key Largo.
Hopefully this vision will soon be
codified as the Key Largo Livable
CommuniKeys plan.
One of the main criticisms of
the U.S. 1 corridor through Key
Largo was that it was not aestheti-
cally pleasing. Another was the
lack of walkability, meaning no
defined pedestrian realm. The idea
of walkability is nothing new; it
was the way towns and cities were
organized from the first urban set-
tlements about 5,500 years ago to
the 20th Century. It is once again
being embraced by a growing
number of communities that want
to reclaim public areas for people,
not just cars.
The DOT plan, if implemented
with the wide shoulder, would
deprive this community of ever liv-
ing up to the potential that Key
Largo has as a quality community
and destination. I have read numer-
ous articles that describe how com-
munities that embrace walkability
have become more energized
Businesses and communities across
the nation are living proof that the
principle works, and it will work
for Key Largo.

Keys animal shelter is a loving place


EDITOR:
My husband and I have been coming
to the Keys for a few years now and I
have been so impressed with the way
Stand Up for Animals has maintained a
great no-kill shelter at Big Pine Key. It's
such a rare gem in a society where the
general mindset is that the best answer
to overpopulation is to callously dispose
of unwanted animals rather than take
care of them and find methods to pre-
vent this problem.
It's so easy to turn our heads -- out
of sight, out of mind and ignore the
millions that die each year. It's so easy
when the shelters are usually on the out-
skirts of town so we don't have to look
in their beautiful eyes before a paid
grim reaper extinguishes the flames to
their little souls. It's so easy to kid your-
self into thinking animals can't have
feelings just like us. Apathy is so easy.
Stand Up for Animals has taken lov-
ing care of hundreds of dogs, cats and
other beautiful creatures for several
years now. It has sponsored reasonably
priced rabies shots and spay and neuter
clinics to help prevent overpopulation. It
: answers calls when a neighbor'sadog is


barking too loud or if a stray shows up
with no sign of an owner in sight. It
takes in homeless dogs and feral cats,
takes care of their needs and tries to
socialize as many as possible so they
can find new homes and enrich their
new families' lives as well as their own.
SIt administers love and care to won-
derful, less-than-perfect dogs and cats
that wouldn't stand a chance without
them, especially if they went to a shelter
that believes in euthanization just
because no one wants to be responsible
for them. If it were your pet, and it was
lost or needed help, wouldn't you want
Stand Up for Animals there?
It recently received the disheartening
news of county budget cuts that would
have them operating by the skin of their
teeth. But now there's talk of totally dis-
solving the Big Pine shelter.
Ghandi once said, "The greatness of a
nation and its progress can be judged by
the way its animals are treated." Please
give these beautiful creatures the respect
and caring they deserve and help today.

Some see fishing slump


But numbers
of licenses
still strong
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Florida saltwater fishing
appears to be weathering a
national decline in fishing license
sales, but troubling signs may be
on the horizon for the recreation-
al industry.
"This year is about the slowest
we've ever had," said Jim
Sharpe, a 20-year Keys charter
captain who runs Sea Boots
Outfitters on Summerland Key.
"With the economy and gas


prices, people are being very cau-
tious with their money," Sharpe
said. "We were busier after the
[2005] hurricanes than now."
"It seems to be pretty much
Keyswide," Sharpe said. "It's not
like there's an abundance of
affordable motel rooms for peo-
ple who want to go fishing."
A widely printed Associated
Press article this week spotlight-
ed significant declines nationally
in the sales of recreational hunt-
ing and fishing licenses.
In Vermont, license sales were
20 percent higher 20 years ago,
reporter Dave Gram found. Sales
of hunting licenses sold in West
Virginia dropped 17 percent over
a decade.

& Insured by Lloyds of London 5409 Overseas Hwy #138 Marathon, FL 3305(


, Florida freshwater-fishing
license sales also have declined,
staff at the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission said this week, but exact
numbers were not immediately
available.
"The economic impact of fish-
ing to Florida is enormous,"
agency spokesman Lee
Schlesinger said. "The marine-
license sales have been holding
up pretty well."
In 2006, about 2.55 million
people went fishing on oceans,
lakes and rivers, generating an
estimated $4.5 billion, according
to state reports.
In 1990, the first year of recre-
ational saltwater-license sales in
Florida, about 590,000 were sold.
Sales have steadily increased,
reaching 1.15 million recreation-
al saltwater licenses in 2002-03.
For the 2006-07 year, Florida
sold 1,198,414 basic saltwater
licenses, generally sold to state
residents at $17 annually.
Also in 2006-07, the state sold
110,430 recreational lobster
licenses as a supplement to the
saltwater license, and 209,212
snook licenses.
The decline in national sales
of licenses for hunting and fish-
ing has a profound effect on state
agencies charged with protecting
and conserving fish and wildlife.
Most of the agency funding
comes from license sales.
The FWC faces its own finan-
cial troubles.
The agency expects a $5.5
million funding shortfall in 2006
to increase to $11.1 million by
2011.
Florida already charges driv-
ers a $3 to $4 surcharge on most
speeding tickets as a funding
source for the state Non-Game
Wildlife Trust.


Former budget

Zappulla still
is challenging
October firing
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Negotiations for a settlement
between Monroe County and its
former budget director have
stalled. Now, the county's
Career Service Council has set
aside two days for a hearing in
the October firing of Sal
Zappulla.
The Career Service Council
meets April 10 beginning at 9
a.m. at the Gato Building on
Simonton Street in Key West.
County staff has also reserved
the room for the following day
in case the hearing take more
than one day.
In August, then-County
Administrator Tom Willi sus-
pended Zappulla without pay
after Zappulla left a voice mail
message for another county
employee saying he was
stressed out and talking about
death.
Willi, himself fired by the
County Commission in
December, accused Zappulla of
misconduct, insubordination
and unsatisfactory work per-
formance.
In an October hearing, then-
county Fire Chief Wayne
Hinnant, acting as hearing offi-
cer, recommended Zappulla's
immediate dismissal.
"The evidence shows that
over the past year Mr. Zappulla
has been counseled, progres-
sively disciplined and referred
to the employee assistance pro-


hearing


gram in an attempt by the coun-
ty to change his behavior and
performance to meet acceptable
standards," flinnant wrote.
Zappulla, Hinnant's ruling
continues, "has communicated
to other employees his wish for
death of certain county employ-
ees, including his supervisors."
Hinnant resigned last month
after only six months on the
job.
Zappulla challenged his fir-
ing in December and requested
a hearing by the Career Service
Council.
Willi suspended Zappulla in
the middle of a particularly gru-
eling budget season while the
county was grappling with
meeting tax rollbacks demand-
ed by the Legislature.
The county's $393 million
overall budget was also under
scrutiny after a January 2007
memo from County Clerk
Danny Kolhage pointed out the
county was on its way to oper-
ating in the red. Zappulla
jumped into the fray by coming
up with a plan to address the
potential shortfalls.
Zappulla considered submit-
ting his resignation in June,
saying he was frustrated when
he didn't receive a requested
raise of his $92,000 annual
salary. At the time Willi, cited
Zappulla's "interpersonal
skills" as the reason for not giv-
ing a raise.
The Career Service Council
comprises appointees from the
Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority,
Keys Energy Services, Florida
Keys Mosquito Control District
and the County Commission.

Officials say

By CAMMY CLARK

A 59-year-old homeless man
was found dead Monday after-
noon in the mangroves near the
Key Haven public boat ramp just
yards from U.S. 1 died of
"severe head trauma," the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
said Tuesday.
Identified as Michael Stanier,
he was known in the community
as The Gypsy.
Detectives with the Sheriff's
Office say blood was*found on
and near the body. However,
"detectives say they do not want
to be more specific about the
injuries, nor do they want to dis-
cuss the possible cause of the
injuries," Deputy Becky Herrin
said.
Keys resident Paula Belmont,
at the scene where the body was
found, said she has known The
Gypsy since she moved to the
Keys nine years ago. She said
she never knew his real name
until she looked at his identifica-
tion after he was dead.

tree near mile marker 6 at 2:24
p.m. Monday.
Stanier, in dark clothing and
wearing sneakers, was lying on a
blue cot with a blanket around
him.
Belmont saw Stanier Sunday
night and thought it strange he
was covered with a blanket
despite the warm temperature.
"I shined a flashlight on him
but he didn't move," she said.
Two acquaintances drinking
in the same location told her not
to worry.
"They said to leave him
alone, he was probably drunk
and sleeping it off," she said.
Belmont said Stanier used to
dress his dog in sunglasses and
cute outfits and solicit donations
from tourists in Key West. She
said recently he had been selling
newspapers at an intersection on
Stock Island.
Anyone with information
about the case can contact homi-
cide detectives Mark Coleman

"We don't know at this point
what the effects will be in
Monroe County," said Doug
Blomberg, executive director of
Wesley House. "We're already
going through and reviewing
our budget."
But as Tuell points out,
there's not a lot of fat to cut
from these programs, and paring
even a little off the top might
have severe repercussions.
"When you decrease a single
position," she said, "you can
decrease services so that an
entire portion of the Keys
receives no services."
So far,.the children's shelter
has not been notified of cuts, she
added.
"We've really ratcheted up
our major donor contributions
so we can offset potential cuts,"
Tuell said. "I will do everything
in my power to not have to lose
positions."
The child welfare system,
according to a statement
released by Our Kids, is facing
cuts ranging between $30 mil-
lion and $40 million statewide.


Miami-Dade and Monroe coun-
ties could see anywhere between
$4 million and $8 million cut
out of state funding.
Potential cuts to foster care
comes on the heels of cuts to
other services.
In Monroe County, drug
court and pretrial substance-
abuse programs are on the chop-
ping block. Big Brothers Big
Sisters and the YMCA in Key
West have closed their doors, as
has the Key West PACE Center
for Girls. All of these cuts come


at a time when prices are going
up and there's more likelihood
that disadvantaged families will
need the safety net these servic-
es provide.
"If we think going through
the budget cuts now is bad,"
Tuell said, "just wait until down
the road and families have been
allowed to continue to disinte-
grate for lack of support in these
programs. These cuts are going
to come home to roost, and it's
not going to be pretty."

Chicken transfer ruffles feathers


Cops: No law
broken, shelter
staff disagrees
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Big Pine Key handyman Tom
Bordovsky was likely within his
rights to capture and remove
chickens from the parking lot of
the island's Winn-Dixie plaza,
according to the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office.
However, the person who
overseas the Big Pine and
Marathon animal shelters has
other thoughts.
Linda Gottwald, director of
Stand Up for Animals, said she
received complaints Bordovsky
was trapping the chickens inhu-
Smanely. Bordovsky is the on-site
representative for property owner
Gary Onderdonk.
Bordovsky admits to trapping
three live chickens Monday and
transporting them to the Monroe
County waste transfer station on
Blimp Road on Cudjoe Key, but
only after receiving permission
from a scale operator at the facil-
ity.
"They were released
unharmed and very much alive.

This was witnessed by the on-

Fleming, Bordovsky wrote in a
statement. "They were- kind
enough to offer safe haven for
some of our chickens and prom-
ised to feed and water them."'
Sheriff's Office spokeswoman
Becky Herrin said as long as the.
chickens were trapped humanely,
didn't belong to anyone and were
released at a place they were
wanted, no laws were broken.
"The other scale operator, he
puts out bird seed here all the
time. They were trying to get rid
of the chickens, so he said, 'If
you bring them, we put bird seed
out,'" Fleming said, referring to
colleague Bob Dickens.
Gottwald is concerned
because Bordovsky was trapping
the chickens and keeping them in
garbage cans. Also, one of the
hens Bordovsky captured and
transferred was incubating up to a
dozen eggs.
Bordovsky insists the trash-
cans were ventilated and the
chickens were inside them for
only a short time. He said the
owners have invested heavily in
refurbishing the property and
were only trying to prevent future
accidents.


"We're trying to move them to
a good home. We have a lot of
elderly people here and someone
is going to get hurt," Bordovsky
said.
Katie Bentley, an employee at
the Big Pine animal shelter, said
Bordovsky was "irate" when she
approached him at the shopping
center.
"The way he was catching
them was in a cruel manner,"


Bentley said. Bordovsky said he
used a fishing net and placed the
animals into the ventilated trash-
cans.
"She was threatening me and
telling; me I was breaking all
these laws. I said, 'This is private
property and there is no law
against me transporting poultry,'"
Bordovsky said. "She was want-
ing to stand there talking to me
and the chickens are sitting there

Bordovsky said Sheriff's

visited him and even contacted
the transfer'station.
"He said legally we did noth-

However, Gottwald said
Bordovsky could face a cruelty-
to-animals citation between $100
and $500.

with what they call increased
noise from training jets. The
Navy has been trying to get
Monroe County to adopt new
noise maps but the county has
resisted, citing possible lawsuits
from landowners whQ may
claim the increased noise makes
their land unusable.
In his new job, Brown will be

Beach.
Some could call it small
potatoes, but Lee's frustration
is real, despite whether it's jus-
tified.
The CRB exists for that very
reason to determine which
claims against the department
are justified.
The organization serves as a
forum outside of the blue cur-
tain for those who feel they
were treated unfairly by the
island's law enforcement.
According to Executive
Director Amanda Willet, some
people just need to get things
off their chest.
For its last reporting year, 19
people filed complaints against
the Key West Police
Department and 10 lodged
complaints, meaning they
walked into Willet's Fleming
Street office and discussed the
incident without formally fil-
ing.
The group can make recom-
mendations to the City
Commission, city manager and
police chief. It also has the
power to issue subpoenas,
Willet said.

person around at the time, and
subsequently was a suspect and
needed to be treated as such,
according to police.
Luna says he has witnesses
that police kept him from his
partner's deceased body. The
CRB will mediate between
Luna and the 'Police
Department on that case.
While Luna's complaint is
probably more serious than
some, the organization hears
many subjective allegations
where it's more difficult to
decide who is in the wrong, if
anyone.
Member Trice Denny said "a
lot of complaints stem from
'rudeness'."
As complainant Robert
Chittenden recalls a man
punching him in the face on
Feb. 16, each member watches
him attentively and thoughtful-
ly, asking detailed questions
about the account.
Some complaints, like 65-
year-old Timothy Stenning's,
reveal officers being forceful or


aggressive. Stenning, a tourist
from Seattle, says he was
yanked from his van while it
was still in drive over an
alleged miscommunication
with a plainclothes detective,
Lawrence Caruso, who was in
an unmarked car.
The officer Lee made his
complaint against, Sgt. Hollis
Wood, said in his internal inter-
view he is baffled that Lee took
offense to their conversation.
He did admit to telling Lee he
looked "real scraggly," but
remembered a "really good
conversation. I was really nice
to the guy,"
The CRB deemed it a he-
said, he-said situation, but said
the department should've sub-
mitted a more comprehensive
investigation.
The CRB was created by a
majority vote of the citizens of
Key West Nov. 5, 2002. It con-
sists of seven volunteers from
varying backgrounds, currently
chaired by Adare Fritz. They
serve four-year terms.


El Rancho project


moves slov

Owners seek
2nd extension
to redevelop
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Managers of the 50-unit El
Rancho Motel on Truman
Avenue in Key West plan to
ask for a year's extension of
their proposed redevelopment.
The Key West City
Commission passed the
owner's plan to tear down the
existing structure and build a
new one in May 2006. Now
the extension request goes to
the Board of Adjustment when
it meets at 6 tonight in Old
City Hall, 510 Greene St.
It was already extended for
a year in March 2007.
The Planning Department
approved a variance that
would allow a new 50-unit
hotel 5 feet closer to the
hotel's property line.
The property owner,
according to city Planning


vly


Department records, is
Vasantlal Soni of Tejas Inc.
and Gonzalez Architects.
Hotel management
declined the Keynoter's multi-
ple requests for comment.
"That hotel is worn out,"
City Commissioner Mark
Rossi said. "As long as they're
just making it another hotel,
it's alright with me. It will be
a good, medium-priced hotel."
The 30,625-square-foot
property at 830 Truman Ave.
is run down and often referred
to it as a \structure badly in
need of redevelopment.
'Average daily rates for rooms
range from about $122 to
about $152 for early April,
according to the hotel's Web
site.
Monroe County officials
filed a lawsuit against
Gonzalez Architects March 19
for contract indebtedness. In
October 2005, countyofficials
fired the firm for problems
and delays on the new, Key
"West courthouse.

Southernmost House issue is settled


Ramos getting
her permits
for guesthouse
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The Key West City
Commission on Friday unani-
mously passed an agreement with
the owner of the Southernmost
House Museum and Historic Inn
that could replace a Monroe
County Circuit Court Judge
Wayne Miller ruling, with his
blessing, and dismiss three law-
suits property owner Matilde
Ramos filed against the city.
The agreement gives Ramos
the necessary permits and licens-
es to operate her Upper Duval
Street guesthouse. But the deci-
sion made at the special meeting


needs to be approved by Miller,
who said on Tuesday he wasn't
aware of the agreement.
Miller ruled Feb. 20 that the
rate-of-growth ordinance, which
limits the number of building per-
mit allocations, issued based upon
hurricane times, expired six years
ago. Those allocations are needed
for a property owner to obtain
building permits.
- Ramos and attorney. Michael
Halpern previously sued the city,
demanding permit allocations for
her guesthouse.
The city is now drafting a new
system of allocating permits, and
market-rate development projects
are prohibited until a system is
passed.
City Attorney Shawn Smith
did not return calls and e-mails
for comment on the settlement.


Neighbors of the 1400 Duval
location told the commission they
want to be sure a proposal to turn
the guesthouse into a 150-seat
restaurant or any restaurant -
wouldn't reappear. That proposal
received fervent opposition at
previous Planning Board meet-
ings.
"I don't want the [state
Department of Community
Affairs] out of this thing," South
Street resident and former City
Commissioner Sally Lewis said.
"It's vital they stay in the loop."
DCA is responsible for the'
permit allocations.
Attorney Hugh Morgan, who
lives next door to the house, told
the commission he wants lan-
guage added to the agreement
that would say a restaurant would
have an "adverse impact" on the
neighborhood.
"It may very well be weaker to


have that language," Smith
argued, adding that future changes
to the area could inspire an attor-
ney to argue against that claim.
An attorney with Morgan's
law firm, Robert Cintron, said the
language specifies Ramos will
remove her application for a 150-
seat restaurant, but it doesn't say
another applicant is restricted
from reintroducing the proposal.
"I think it should be much
broader than that," Cintron said,
considering changes in the future,
like if Ramos were to lease the
property.
Neighbors of the house have
long complained that parties at
the guesthouse carry on late into
the night, and the music emanat-
ing from the property is much
louder than what the city noise


ordinance allows.
"I just want to put the appli-
cant on notice," City Commis-
sioner Barry Gibson said. "I, for
one, will have difficulty granting
a noise exemption."
With the agreement passed,
Ramos is free to operate the
Southernmost House as a 14-unit
guesthouse. She also owns a pri-
vate home across the street, 1401
Duval. The settlement would
allow the house to operate as a
five-unit guesthouse.
The City Commission origi-
nally approved the property's
conversion from a private resi-
dence- to a guesthouse in
November 2001.
DCA filed a motion last month
for a rehearing of Miller's deci-
sion'.


Credit crunch hits state storm fund


By BEATRICE E. GARCIA
bgarcia@MiamiHerald.com

Because of the near-shutdown
of the credit markets and rising
interest rates, insurers in Florida
fear the state's hurricane catastro-
phe fund may not live up to its
promise if a massive storm hits
this hurricane season.
The Florida Hurricane
Catastrophe Fund, which has
backed up the insurance industry
for nearly 15 years, has nearly $6
billion in cash and borrowed
money in its kitty to pay claims.
It relies on credit markets to raise
the rest of the money it would
need to back up insurers, and the
current turmoil could make the
CAT fund fall short.
In a good market, the CAT
fund raises the money it needs by
selling bonds. "But in a bad mar-
ket, bets are off," said Jack
Nicholson, the fund's executive
director.
The CAT fund has already
faced this predicament. Last sum-
mer, it could sell only $3.5 billion
in bonds, rather than the $7 bil-
lion it wanted.
"The real question is what will
be the condition of the credit mar-
kets when we need it," Nicholson
said.
Quite simply, the CAT fund
could face a liquidity crisis.
This lack of faith is causing
many private insurers that buy
.a3 '\


backup coverage from the CAT
fund to consider buying addition-
al coverage in the private reinsur-
ance market.
Citizens Property Insurance
Corp., the state-run insurer, is
"aggressively" shopping for extra
backup insurance coverage in the
private reinsurance market, said
Bruce Douglas, chairman of the
company's board of directors.
Citizens, the largest provider
of coverage for homes, apart-
ments and condominiums, has
hired an insurance broker to
check out the cost and availability
of private reinsurance for the
coming hurricane season.
Citizens is the CAT fund's biggest
customer, accounting for 40 per-
cent of the coverage it sells.
Here's why insurers are wor-
ried:
The CAT fund is authorized to
sell up to $28 billion in coverage
to insurers, including Citizens.
By law, it's obligated to cover
losses up to the amount of money
it can raise in the bond market. A
February report to the Financial
Services Commission prepared
by the Office of Insurance
Regulation reiterated this point.
The report noted that the CAT
fund would face a deficit of near-
ly $21.4 billion if the state experi-
enced the kind of huge storm that
could hit once in 50 years, pro-
; ,., L I } -


during total losses of $32 billion:
To cover such a shortfall, the
CAT fund would have to add a
4.06 percent surcharge to all
insurance policies in Florida -
except medical malpractice and
workers' compensation policies
- for 30 years. .
That means a $40.60 charge
for every $1,000 of annual premi-
um on an insurance policy.
Consumers with auto and home
insurance policies would be hit
twice.
The CAT fund was created
after Hurricane Andrew to sell
cheaper backup insurance to
insurers working in Florida.
"We appreciated the savings
provided by the CAT fund, but
we're worried about its solvency
when the big one hits," said John
Auer, president of American
Strategic Insurance in St.
Petersburg. His company buys 40
percent of its reinsurance from
the CAT fund.
The CAT fund was set up as a
self-funding vehicle.
Right now, -the CAT fund has
$2.08 billion in operating cash,
$3.5 billion in five-year floating-
rate notes and another $2.8 bil-
lion in extendable notes, which
will be eliminated in May.
Another $1.3 billion will
begin coming later this year as
insurers begin to pay their premi-
ums for the next year.

Big Pine development costs appear lowered


But to build
would still
cost thousands-
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Planning
Commission will take another
shot next week at creating a miti-


gation plan for development on
Big Pine Key that could have
new-home builders paying any-
where from $7,000 to $13,000.
The commission convenes
April 9 at 10 a.m. at the Marathon
Government Center. On tap is an
ordinance setting a new formula
for determining how much a
home builder would have to pay


to offset the environmental
impact of new construction.
The formula is complex,
Planning Commissioner Jim
Cameron said.
Thoughthe bottom line means
people, would have to pay less
than a similar proposal floated
last November, Cameron said
he's not sure the new formula
works, either.
' Because Big Pine and No
Name keys are governed by a
habitat conservation plan to pro-
tect the Key deer, new construc-
tion or redevelopment must be
offset by putting other parcels
aside for conservation.
The conservation plan hinges
on how many Key deer will be
killed by human encroachment.
This so-called harvest, or H fac-
tor, has been assigned to every
parcel on the two islands,
Cameron said.
The HCP doesn't allow for
any changes in the way deer
behave or an increase in the herd.
"The problem I have is the
way the H is assigned to all of the
land," he said. "The fallacy is, if
you have a nice green yard, it can
change the way the deer move
through the island. There are

parcels that look identical, sit
right next to each other, yet they
have very different H factors."
In addition, he said, the new
formula for figuring the cost of
mitigation might be skewed by
changing land values since it
would be changed annually.
Cameron explained the gene-
sis of the current formula: The
values of land purchased by the
county Land Authority for con-
servation between 2004 and 2007
were added up, and the dollar
value of the H factor for those
lots was added up. The market
value was divided by the H value
figure.
The formula also takes into
consideration the environmental
sensitivity of each lot.
Cameron said the bottom line is
that the owners of scarified parcels


would likely have to pay a little
more than $7,000 to build and
those who own land a bit more
sensitive would have to pay
$13,000. The formula puts a
$25,000 price tag on the most sen-
sitive parcels, but Cameron said
not one of the 50-plus people
awaiting building permits on the
islands seeks to build on such land.
The Planning Commission
rejected an ordinance .in
November that would have set a
$98,000 environmental mitiga-
tion fee for a new home on Big
Pine or No Name.
The HCP makes Big Pine and
No Name keys the only islands in
Monroe with a blanket policy of
environmental mitigation, Cameron
said. Elsewhere in unincorporated
Monroe County, it is determined
on a case-by-case basis.

Chicken-seeking kids
are chased off

A Key West woman had a run-
in with a suspected gang of juve-

afternoon, according to a Key
West police report.
A 15-foot chain-link fence
leading to her Flagler Avenue
home was knocked over about
5:20 p.m., and there stood five to
six boys ages 8 and 9 carrying
fishing nets, the report says.
Police say they hoped to nab
some chickens, but unfortunately
for them, neighbors upset about
the fence interrupted their hunt.
According to the report, the
damage to the fence will cost
about $500 to $800 to repair.
The suspected chicken catch-
ers were last seen heading east-
bound on Flagler.

The llth Circuit Court of
Appeal in Atlanta on Tuesday
affirmed U.S. District Court Judge
K. Michael Moore's 2005 ruling
that flood insurance policies can't
be written in.the Keys where there
is habitat for endangered species,
according to the Monroe County
Attorney's Office.
In September 2005, Moore
issued an injunction against the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency, which runs the National
Flood Insurance Program, barring
such new policies. It stemmed
from a 15-year-old lawsuit filed
by three environmental groups,
the National Wildlife Federation,
Florida Wildlife Federation and
Defenders of Wildlife.
The suit alleged FEMA and
the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
were not following the federal

hibits development in areas that

When the ruling came out,
there were some 49,000 proper-
ties thought to be affected.
However, that list was narrowed
as specific parcels were exam-
ined. For example, the runway at
Florida Keys Marathon Airport
was initially on the list.
Henry Morgenstern, the attor-
ney for the environmental groups
involved in the suit, had been
working with landowners to help
remove properties from the list
that do not have sensitive habitat.
How many remain on the list
wasn't available at press time.
Morgenstern is the attorney
who initially filed the suit in the
interest of the Key deer, Key
Largo cotton mouse, Stock Island
tree snail and several other
endangered species.

FKAA going greener


New building
in Middle Keys
aims for LEED
By KAREN QUIST
kquist@keynoter.com

The Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority's new service center in
Marathon will be a showcase for
energy- and water-saving tech-
nology.
It will be such a paragon of


efficiency and sustainability, in
fact, that FKAA spokeswoman
Colleen Tagle says the utility
hopes it will qualify for platinum
certification under the U.S. Green
Building Council's Leadership in
Energy and Environmental
Design (LEED) program.
Far more than an office build-
ing, the building will be a demon-
stration of the cutting edge of
green building techniques.
Exhibits will allow people to see


the technology solar panels,
wind generators, cisterns and
gray-water reuse systems in
action, with information on the
costs and how they can work in
residential applications.
The Aqueduct Authority's
board approved the building's
design last month, Tagle says,
and "the design as it's moving
forward is a platinum" the
highest possible under the LEED
program.

Firm strikes gold with foreclosures

McClatchy Tribune

It's the equivalent of a body
cavity search, but for home loans.
The 1003 AppScan, an automated
Web-based filter, subjects mort-
gage applications to more than
150 tests designed to extract both


little white lies and criminal
schemes used to defraud lenders.
It is the signature service
developed by Verification
Bureau, a fraud prevention and
detection firm in Miami founded
by three Florida International
University students before
mortgage fraud reached epidemic
levels in the real estate boom.
Now, as financial institutions
face more than $100 billion in


losses from failed loans, with
batches of them poisoned by
fraud,, the company is watching
business pour in.
When it opened six years ago,
Verification Bureau joined a
niche industry that helps lenders
filter out fraud during the under-
writing process. Nationally,
fewer than a dozen such firms
offer an extensive set to tools to
weed out bad apples.

Keys Business


Design is 'forward thinking'


What is LEED?


FKAA / From 17

M.C. Harry & Associates, an
architecture and engineering firm
out of Miami, is designing the
building, which Tagle says has an
estimated price tag of $4.2 mil-
lion.
The FKAA has a $500,000
grant from the South Florida
Water Management District to
use toward construction. The
grant was awarded to demon-
strate innovative stormwater han-
dling, just one of the technologies
the new building will showcase.
Tagle says the FKAA will contin-
ue to seek other grants.
The two-story building will sit
on a 2.25-acre site at Sombrero
Beach and Manor roads. Once
covered in invasive exotics, the
site will be restored to a Keys-
friendly landscape, including a
small wetland. A boardwalk is
incorporated in the building's
design, says M.C. Harry's Tom
Carlson.
The building will be powered
in part by solar panels. Wind gen-
erators will also be used.
Part of the roof will be cov-


ered in vegetation, a technique
that helps insulate buildings
while also helping to filter
stormwater runoff. A large cistern
underneath the boardwalk will
capture rainwater from the roof
and condensation from the air-
conditioning system.
"It can serve as a real world
machine to show what these tech-
nologies can do," Tagle says.
Another goal will be to rein-
force a necessary conservation
message, as South Florida deals
with multiyear droughts and a
booming population that's strain-
ing the region's water supply and
environment.
Displays will show customers
"how much-energy it takes to get
a drop of water down here,"
Tagle says.
The FKAA hopes to have the
project out to bid by summer and
completed in late 2009.
There's a silver lining in South
Florida's construction slowdown,
Tagle says, in that there's an
increase in interest in taking on
such innovative projects.
Companies have the time now,
she says, but they also want to
gain the experience in working


on a LEED-certified building. A
lot of cities are going the green
building route, making that
LEED experience a bargaining
chip in negotiations.
Tagle says it's not difficult to
make a case for building in this
manner.
The building will deliver long-
term savings with lower water
and power costs, and it's the kind
of project that attracts outside
money.
"People don't give you a grant
to build an office building," she
points out.
It also helps that the price dif-
ference between regular products
and "green" ones gets smaller
every day, she says.
"That initial skepticism is dis-
appearing," she says.
The FKAA chose Carlson's
firm for the design because it's
working on several LEED proj-
ects.
Carlson says the service cen-
ter's design is driven by the
FKAA's mission in serving such
a unique environment.
He describes the look of the
7,000-square-foot structure as a
"contemporary reinterpretation"


The U.S. Green Building
Council, based in Washing-
ton, has set up benchmarks
by which developers can
win "green" status for build-
ings, or LEED certification -
Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design.
Factors measured include
sustainable site develop-
ment, water savings, energy
efficiency, materials selec-
tion and indoor environmen-
tal quality. Developers can
win one of four award levels:


of Keys architecture.
"It's very forward thinking of
them to also think of the project
as a demonstration center," he
says, "to have people leave with a
better understanding of energy
and water conservation and how
that would apply to what they do
at home or in an office."
Carlson says the building
should be 25 percent more ener-
gy-efficient and 40 percent more
water-efficient than a similarly
sized non-LEED building.
Tagle hopes the new FKAA


LEED, LEED Silver, LEED Gold,
LEED Platinum.
Buildings get points, for
instance, for biodegradable
carpets or systems that col-
lect raindrops on roofs to irri-
gate plants and trees, natu-
rally replacing water that
evaporates from air condi-
tioning systems. They also
get points for motion sensors
that dim interior lights when
sunlight floods into rooms, or
for locations near mass tran-
sit stops.


building sets an example not only
for the FKAA's customers, but
also for other construction proj-
ects in the Keys.
"I'm hoping it will lead others
to do the same," she says.

The island Henry Hudgins built

Modern-day Summerland a testament to will, hard work
By JOHN VIELE
Keynoter Contributor

rtus


Few know it, but Henry
ean Hudgins developed Summerland
Key from an uninhabited semi-
kes tropical wilderness to an up-scale
thIe residential neighborhood begin-
ning in 1948.
e..- Hudgins graduated from
e Georgia Tech in 1922 with a
e. degree in civil engineering. Four
at years later, while employed as
he chief, structural engineer for the
ad city of Miami, he became
acquainted with Warren Niles,
e whose family owned a large por-
tion of Summerland.
1. In the ensuing years, Hudgins
S designed and oversaw major con-
ders struction projects in the Panama
ck- Canal zone and Bogota,
ftle. Columbia. While in Panama, he
lent married Mavis Delgado. When
S their first and only child Connie
(Consuelo) was born, they
the moved to Bogota.
/ Hudgins lived in Bogota for
14 years, designing and supervis-
360, ing construction of luxurious
- homes and large structures
o at including office buildings, banks,
a theater and a church.
the Eventually he formed his own
ked company.
on Henry and Mavis gradually
ee grew apart and separated. Connie
Fr- was sent to live with her aunt in
Georgia. On a business trip to
New York City, Henry became
ir sick and was hospitalized. His
nurse was a beautiful young
In blond named Mary Dobie.
Following a brief courtship, they
married.
co Back in 1941, Henry received
she a letter from the Niles family say-
cci- ing they were considering selling
their Summerland property.. In
on. 1947, he made an offer of
1ian- $100,000, which was accepted.
He called the island the Pearl of
the the Keys because it had a wide,
e deep entrance channel and rela-.
local tively high ground compared to
S many other Keys.
rizes Part of the cost to develop the
er- property was to be paid by
ch Henry's partner and former
employee, Tony Alfonso. After
nd starting as an office boy, Tony,
ifor- with Henry's help, got started in a
business of his own. But when
the time came for Tony to pay his
: part of the development cost, he


Henry sent a trusted assistant
to the Keys to close the deal and
start development. In the fall of
1948, he traveled to Key West
with Connie, who was by then
ready to begin her junior year in
high school. Because of the dis-
tance to the Key West high
school from Summerland and the
lack of bus transportation, he
took Connie to a boarding school.

Hurricanes hit
Two hurricanes struck the
Lower Keys in the fall. One hit in
September, the eye passing over
Boca Chica. Two weeks later,
another hurricane traveled up the
Keys. Storm tides rose 6 feet,
causing much damage from
flooding.
When Henry saw the high
water mark on a bulldozer at
Summerland, he decided that
homes in his development would
have to be built at higher eleva-
tions. He recalled the native
houses he. had seen along the
banks of rivers in Panama, all sit-
ting on top of tall poles.
He purchased two surplus
Army buildings in Key West and
moved them to Summerland. His
construction crews raised them

Henry Hudgins and his daughter Connie Losley (above) were
Summerland Key pioneers. On top is the Hermitage. Hudgins
lived in it for only a short time; he died in 1962.

Hudgins becomes postmaster for Summerland


SUMMERLAND / From 19

and secured them on the top of
sturdy utility poles. One of the
houses was near the shoreline at
the foot of what is today Dobie
Street.
This was the first home of the
Hudgins family on Summerland
Key and one of the first if not
the first stilt houses in the
Keys..
Henry drew up plans for.the
canals and streets that would
comprise the development. He
purchased a used dragline and,
with an operator and several
laborers, began to dredge the
canals.
After the first canal was dug,
Henry was unhappy with the
ragged appearance of the edges
and, after some thought, hit on a
better way to dig the canals.
First, a ditch-digging machine
dug deep trenches on either side
of the future canal. Then, using
dynamite and the dragline, his
workers dragged out the crum-
bled limestone' between the
trenches. The resulting canal had
smooth side walls. Connie
believes her father was the first to
use this method, which was soon
adopted by other Keys develop-
ers.

Always frantic
Henry and Mary worked
together as a team to manage the
development. Progress was often
delayed by heavy-equipment
breakdowns. Mary urged Henry
to buy new equipment instead of
used, but without much success.
She also had two young boys,
Henry Clay and John Dobie, to
take care of. She recalled the days
of the development work as fran-
tic but never dull.
Because Tony Alfonso had
backed out of the partnership,
finances became a big problem
for Henry. He sold some proper-
ty, mostly that in the northern part
of the island, and mortgaged
some. One result of the lack of
funds was that the Hudgins fami-
ly could no longer afford to send
Connie to boarding school.
Connie was 15 when she
arrived back on Summerland. At
that age, she needed some priva-
cy, so her father purchased a
small trailer for her and put it
under the house. There was still
no school bus service to Key
West so Connie rode the
Greyhound bus to high school.


She was supposed to be out at
the highway waiting for the bus
each morning, but was often late.
The softhearted bus driver would
wait for her while the other pas-
sengers stewed.
When Henry began develop-
ment of Summerland Key, the.
nearest post office was on
Ramrod Key. It had been there
since 1919 and was a community
center for the residents of neigh-
boring Keys. Henry was anxious
to have a post office on
Summerland to serve residents of
his development and made seri-
ous efforts to get it there. He
befriended the postmistress on
Ramrod, known as Mary
Ramrod. When she retired, he
was able to get the post office
transferred to Summerland. Mary
recommended that Henry be
appointed postmaster, and he
was.

The Toppinos
Through business dealings,
Henry became acquainted with
Philip Toppino of the Toppino
Brothers Inc., a construction and
concrete-block manufacturing
company on Rockland Key.
Philip had learned to fly and
talked to Henry about how great
it would be to have a home where
he could land, park his airplane,
and then go fishing. About the
same time, Mary had also taken
flying lessons and had a plane of
her own she kept at Marathon.
Philip asked Henry, "Why


don't you put a landing strip on
Summerland?" After some seri-
ous thought, Henry decided it
could be done. So around 1956,
Philip and Henry formed a part-
nership to develop a section of
Summerland Key with a landing
strip and homes and canals on
either side. They named it
Summerland Key Cove.
In the meantime, as lots began
to sell, Henry moved his family
to a small wooden two-bedroom
house on the north side of Center
Street to be closer to the post
office. The house still stands
there today. But the home site
Henry really had his eye on was
the waterfront property facing
Niles Channel, which had been
the Garibaldi Niles homestead
back around 1900. In the late
1950s, he purchased the property.
Designed by Henry, the house
sat on concrete pillars with an
upper-level porch facing the
water. Henry and Mary named it
the Hermitage. Connie recalls
that her father designed it to with-
stand wind speeds of 150 mph. It
still stands there today, fitting tes-
timony to the hard-working
developer of Summerland Key
- a man with guts who got
things done.
Henry was able to enjoy the
Hermitage for only a few years;
he passed away in 1962. He was
characterized as hard-driving,
often irascible, but a drag-line
operator who worked for him
periodically for eight years, said,

High-scoring Eagles can't hold on

Early lead M
vanishes as S


Zion gets win
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


After piling up 12 runs in
five innings, Island Christian's
offense ran out of steam Friday.
The baseball Eagles limped
through two scoreless innings to
fall, 14-12, to visiting Zion
Lutheran.
In a game where scores came
in bunches, being down by two
runs in the bottom of the seventh
did not seem hopeless, said
Eagle coach Tony Hammon -
especially with some of this bet-
ter hitters due up. "I felt very
comfortable with the guys due
to bat," Hammon said.
But a fly out, easy grounder
and strikeout ended the game.
"We were up 6-0 after three
innings," Hammon said. "Tough
to lose a game like that."

the ICS staff this spring, closed

Siris: in: fhe third inning against


Blayne Weller, helped by two hit
batsmen, a balk and throwing
errors by Weller and catcher
Joseph Gandolfo.
The Wolverines scored those
runs before an out was made, the
final two on a single by John
Brebbia.
The Conchs broke through on
the fifth against starting left-

innings but the Conchs failed to
tie the score.
They had their best chance in
the sixth when Gandolfo walked
and advanced to second on a
sacrifice bunt by pinch-hitter
Andrew Rodriguez. After Jason
Zamora struck out, Raiko
Alfonso was intentionally
walked, bringing Ratcliff to the
plate.
But Ratcliff, who had gone 7-
for-9 since returning from an
injury, flew out to center to end
the threat.
In the bottom of the seventh,


Thomas singled with one out,
but Charlie Walker-Yhap took a
third strike and Cole Harrison -
who was 2-for-4 hit into a
force play to end the game.
Afterward, coach Miguel
Menendez said, "It's like we
don't start to play until the
fourth or fifth inning, and then
we're down four or five runs.
We can't be a good team until
we learn to play for seven
innings."

Riverdale overwhelms Lady Conchs


--ort Myers
team scores 32
over two games
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

"Experience is the best
teacher," Key West High School
softball coach David Gootee said
in the dugout Saturday afternoon
as he mulled over a five-inning,
16-1 Conch Classic loss to Fort
SMyers power Riverdale.
The defeat came on the heels
of a 16-0 loss in six innings to the
same team on Friday night.
The Conchs' lack of experi-


ence outfielder Kristen Babich
and infielder Jianna Hernandez
are the only seniors back from
last season's regional-tournament
team was painfully evident in
both games against a 15-2 team
that also beat Marathon, 12-0, in
the first game of the tournament.
Friday night, the Key West hit-
ters were overmatched by left-
'handed pitcher Liana Derringer,
who threw with high velocity and
was backed by nearly flawless
defense.
Saturday, the Conchs failed to
hit even one ball hard against
another lefty, Allora Miller, who
wasn't nearly as fast as Derringer.

Their only run came in the first-
inning when Gigi Orofino, who
had led off with an infield hit,
scored on a wild throw.
"It's good to face those kind of
pitchers," Gootee said. "When
we get to the district tournament,
we're not going to see anybody
who throws like" Derringer.
Saturday's game stayed com-
petitive for three innings, with
Conch pitcher Lindsay Yochum
looking sharp despite a sore fin-


ger. "Lindsay was pitching a
great game," Gootee said.
But in the fourth, with
Riverdale's nonstop dugout chat-
ter serving as background music,
Yochum got ripped for several
hits, walked two batters and made
a couple of wild pitches. That was
a combination that, with the help
of two errors, added up to eight-
runs and an 11-1 Riverdale lead.
That prompted Gootee to yank

Shark makes Bahia Honda return


It was tagged
2 years previous
in same spot

A bull shark caught by an
angler at Bahia Honda Bridge in
2007 was tagged near the same
spot more than two years before,
Mote Marine Laboratory
researchers have learned.
Reporting the tag information
earned fisherman James Cooper
of Tarpon Springs a $100 prize
in a Mote drawing.
The Bahia Honda shark was
tagged 828 days before Cooper
reeled it in, only a half-mile
from the spot where the shark
was tagged.
"Some shark species move
relatively short distances, while
others travel thousands of
miles," said Robert Hueter,
director of Mote's Center for
Shark Research. "Tag returns ...
really help our understanding of
sharks."


Most notable among the 2007
tag reports that were just report-
ed: A male Atlantic sharpnose
shark caught off Mississippi still
had a tag from 1996 longest
period between tagging and
recapture in the 17-year history
of the Mote shark program. The
shark was about 103 miles from
Pensacola, where researchers
tagged it 3,925 days before.
"Atlantic sharpnose sharks
are a small, relatively abundant
species of coastal shark that are
often prey for larger shark
species," according to Mote. "As
the larger species have been
depleted by overfishing in Gulf
waters, small species like the
sharpnose have held their own."
Mote staff has tagged more
than 16,000 sharks, including 16
different species, in the Gulf and
near the Florida Keys since
1991. Anglers and commercial
fishermen who report returned
tags 25 in 2007 are eligible

out the visiting Lions for three
innings but struggled in a nine-
run fourth. "Phillip wanted to
keep going like the competitor
he is, but he was out of gas,"
Hammon said.
Island Christian tied the game
at 9-9 with three runs in the bot-
tom of the fourth. In the fifth,
each side scored three runs,
resulting in a 12-12 tie.
A dark scoreboard and -dou-
ble-digit scoring left Eagle fans
baffled as to who was winning,
and by what.
Hammon tried to keep the lid
on Zion scoring in the sixth,
pulling in outfielder Aaron
Izaguirre against a Lion hitter
who had dropped in two shallow
bloopers. The hitter tagged a.
pitch from reliever Tim Globus
deep, sending Izaguirre scram-
bling back.
"Aaron did a good job getting
to it but the ball popped out," the
coach said. "There were a cou-
ple things that could have gone
either way, and we made some
mistakes."
Aaron Izaguirre homered to
center in the fifth, and singled.
Tom Cavanagh was the only


other Eagle with two hits in the
seven-hit attack.
Three Eagle starters missed
the game because of academic
commitments.
, Island Christian (6-5) had no
trouble dispatching Horeb
Academy, 12-0, in Miami on
Thursday.
Aaron Izaguirre had his best
day on the mound since he start-
ed shoulder recuperation, throw-
ing a two-hit shutout. He collect-
ed 11 strikeouts in the five-
inning game.
Jordan Izaguirre had a grand
slam in the third inning.
The Eagles return from
Spring Break Tuesday with a
home game against Spanish
River High School, a Class 6A
school making a Keys tour.
Game time is scheduled .for 4
p.m., but may be moved up.
"We know it will be tough,
but it can't be any tougher than
playing [state Class A title con-
tender] Brito," Hammon said.
The Eagles finish the regular
season with games at Princeton

Bones g

Numbers down
in All-Tackle
for third year

I am a huge Cal Ripken fan,
which means I'm also a fan of iron-
man competitions. Not so much the
swim, jog and bike kinds, but that
of the fishing variety. .
One of the tougher competi-
tions for bonefishing would have
to be the Islamorada All-Tackle
Bonefish Tournament, which
ended on Friday.
The competition has it all -
three days of hard-core bonefish-
ing; the standard windy days of
April; the best anglers using their
favorite style of fishing whether
it be fly, spin or plug; and the pre-
mier captains in their field.
This year's event included two
days of poor visibility and unusu-
ally slow fishing throughout.
That surprised one competitor.
"The fish were there. For
some reason, they didn't want
what I had," says Richard Oliver
of Kennebunk, Maine, a past
champion who fished with Capt.
Bruce Stagg from the Lorelei in
Islamorada. "I strictly fly fished
and I was getting good opportu-
nities, I just couldn't quite match
the hatch, as they say. I had a lot
of bonefish turning their noses up
at my fly"
Reports from throughout the
Keys leading up to the event had
been favorable for bonefishing,
but like deer season, the bones
almost sense when theAll-Tackle
comes around and play finicky.
In years past, 100 bonefish in
this tournament was normal.
Now, some 30 weighed fish is the
standard.
Over the past three years of
this 12-year-old tournament, the
bonefish totals weighed in by
anglers have continued to decline
on all styles of fishing methods.
That leads tournament organizer
Jim Bokor to believe bonefishing
in Islamorada may be going
through some compatibility
issues.
All told this year, of 17 teams
competing over the three days,
there were only 27 bonefish
released, eight of which were
weighed in meeting the 8-pound
minimum. Islamorada has long
been known to have Jurassic-
sized bonefish but those fabled
fish were hard to find during the

Butt-busting tarpon are on the prowl


The fight is
worth all of
the trouble

It's tarpon time, without a
doubt one of my favorite times of
year.
These' monsters are tougher
than most of the available action
figures. They will bust tackle
more than any species that I know
of and now I know why I like
them so much they're part of
my retirement plan.
Why do we torture ourselves
so with attempting to catch a tar-
pon? After all:
+ They are very hard to get to
eat the bait, with all of the fore-
play they give your mullet.
The miullet is so expensive
to buy and even harder to catch
and keep alive.
+ They are just about the
toughest fish to set a hook into.
+ Once hooked, they frankly
kick your butt.
+ They throw the hook more
often than not.
+ And at the end of all that,
you release them.

SUTPHIN/ From 28

Marathon guy.
Now the silver lining there
are a lot of reasons to be opti-
mistic about flats fishing in the
Upper Keys.. Watchdog groups
like Bonefish & Tarpon
Unlimited have had favorable
bonefish censuses over the past
three years that indicate a
.healthy fishery. It would only
stand to reason that if every-
where, else in the Keys bonefish-
ing is healthy, then it should be
the same in Islamorada, or soon
will be.
Now, the results for the 13th
annual Islamorada All-Tackle:
The team of Tony Horsley of.
Richmond, Va., and Capt. Mark
Gilman won top honors with two
weight fish and four releases to
best the field of 17 teams.
The largest bonefish went to
angler Mark Eberhard of
Islamorada and guide Rich
Mitchell with a 12.3-pounder.


Dave Navarro


S o
what's the
big deal
with a tar-
pon? I'll
tell you.
For an
angler,
catching a
tarpon is
just about
as much
fun as you
can have
with your
clothes on.


The thrill of fighting a fish that is
from- half to equal your body
weight on light line is a natural
rush (not to mention a legal one)
that is hard to top. The challenge
is what makes big game fishing
so great and tarpon are the on top
of the list when it comes to acces-
sible big game.
Marlin, sailfish, big tuna, big
dolphin and other larger fish are
mostly offshore and weather con-
ditions dictate the opportunity to
go after them. Tarpon are right
here literally in your back
yard.
The bridge channels will
become loaded, as will many.
canals in the Keys. You can fish
for them just about any time of
day or night, in just about any
kind of weather, in just about any
size boat or even from shore, in
certain .instances, although you
may get a crash course in bare-


foot water-skiing.
The proper etiquette practiced
in tarpon fishing is very much
appreciated by both professional
guides as well as amateur anglers.
It is not a long book of rules but
rather common sense that guides
you.
For instance, don't pass
behind a boat as to cut off its
lines. This may sound like any-
one would know this but I have
seen it happen often; people get
tarpon fever and forget about
anyone else but themselves.
SWhen fishing around a bridge
or in a channel, you are not going
that far so you don't have to go
full blast. Your wake will travel a
long way. People are fishing
nearshore to avoid the rough seas,
so please don't create them.
When you see a line of boats
anchored up along the same plane
under a bridge, don't drop back
well behind the line. This messes
up the fishing for everyone.
It's just a few little things that
make it work for everyone.
If you are going tarpon fish-
ing, I would suggest you take a
little variety of bait. This time of
year, a mix of mullet, crabs and
pinfish will be more productive
than you may think. Personally, I
have caught roughly seven tarpon
on pinfish to each one I've caught
on a mullet.
I'm not saying that at the
height of the season that mullet is
not the best bait to use. It is just at

r 1:

*j h] 02'r

rr




..........Yr YYYYY ;Y-1 I I I I


times, a mix will help.
There is not a show that can
top a mullet being mugged by
several tarpon. It is exciting as it
gets while you are holding the rod
and awaiting the big tug when he
finally gets the bait. With a pin-
fish, you don't get the show, just
the pull.. But what a pull it is.
Look at it this way.
Along with tarpon comes the
usual arrival of the dolphin off-
shore. This is holding true, with a
good influx of them this week.
Look nearby for most of the action,
from 200 to 600 feet of water.
'We'll have a free seminar at 6
p.m. Thursday on tarpon fishing
to cover all that is just about to


bust loose there in the next few
weeks. It's at our Marine
Educational Center at mile mark-
er 50 bayside.
The combination of the tarpon,
the dolphin and the time change
gives you the opportunity to fish
all day. You can hit the channels
early for tarpon, head offsfirie
and catch some dolphin and
return in time for the evening bite.
Dang, it's good to be in a busi-
ness where fishing is not.playing
but rather 'research.
