Sweepstakes will
award a luxury
Keys home in '08
By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com

For more than.a decade, view-
ers of Home & Garden
Television shows have had a
recurring dream winning a
new luxury home that the cable
network builds, furnishes and
gives away each year.
From Maine to the Rockies to
the Georgia coast, HGTV's
"dream homes" have showcased
high-end style and high-end loca-
tions.
Now it's the Upper Keys'
turn.
On March 18, HGTV
announced that the 12th annual
Dream Home Giveaway will
award a new, fully furnished,
custom-designed bayfront home
to one lucky winner in February
2008.
The HGTV home will be in
The Shore, a new enclave of
eight island-style luxury homes
to be built on Plantation Key, just
south of Islamorada's Founders
Park and shoreward of the Rain
Barrell artists village. Prices
weren't available, but they likely

Four affordable projects are planned
by county from Big Coppitt to Key Largo


ders," said attorney Jerry
Coleman, who worked with the
County Commission and the
county's Workforce Housing
Task Force to draft the request.
"Whoever might have an inter-
est in working with Monroe


County and the cities."
The proposal includes:
+ 14 rental units in the
Mandalay subdivision in Key
Largo.
Between 32 and 39 rental
units at mile marker 92.5 ocean-
side in Tavernier.
+ 13 to 16 affordable rental


units at mile marker 22.5 at
Cutthroat Harbor Estates.
Between 10 and 12 rental
units on Big Coppitt Key.
Each of the projects has
enough permits reserved to
accomplish the lower number,
but potential to develop the
higher number if the county can
obtain additional state permit
allocations to build.

State may override rules


Wetlands control
would be held
by the state
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The effect of an amendment
working its way through the
Florida Legislature could loosen
local regulations on some small
wetlands areas.


House Bill 957 aims to
streamline the approval process
for wetlands permits throughout
Florida.
An amendment added to the
bill would prevent local govern-
ments from requiring any special
permits covering wetlands
beyond permits required by the
state Department of Environ-
mental Protection.
How Monroe County would
be affected remains uncertain,


since the county does not issue
separate wetlands permits.
The state bill would prevent
the county or local governments
from adopting such a requirement
in the future.
"Any time the state wants to
prevent local government from
being more restrictive than the
state, you have to ask who hap-
pens to benefit from that," said
Sherry Popham, a member of the
Monroe County Planning

Trumbo Point


housing proposed


By ERIN MAGEE
and DAVID GOODHUE
emagee@keysreporter.com


An Orlando development
company has proposed an.afford-
able housing project for the
Monroe County School District's
Trumbo Point property in Key
West.
Key West and Stock Island
have just over half the total coun-
tywide student enrollment, but
have a severe problem with
retaining teachers for those stu-
dents.
The Monroe County School
Board committed to use Trumbo
Point for affordable housing at a
meeting Feb. 13 at Coral Shores
High School in Tavemier, ruling
out the possibility of selling the
land for monetary compensation.
The board released a request
for proposals from companies
interested in building and run-
ning the housing at Trumbo in
'January.
The company, Wendover
Housing Partners, submitted a
response to the district's request
for proposals for the property
Wednesday.
Wendover's proposal calls for
a 145-unit project on 6 acres of
district land and a quarter acre of
Key West's portion of the proper-
ty.
To pay for the $24.5 million
project, Wendover is proposing a


mix of federal, state and private
funding, including from the
state's Community Workforce
Housing Innovation Program,
said Jonathan Wolf, a principal of
the company. In 2006, the
Legislature allocated $50 million
for the entire state.
To qualify to live in the devel-
opment, residents must make
between 50 to 150 percent of the
area's median income, which
Wolf said was around $61,000 a
year.
One-hundred twenty-five
units would be rentals and 20
units would be for sale at "modi-
fied market rate," Wolf said. The
city and district would enter into
a 99-year lease with the develop-
er.
Wendover designed a similar
project for the Osceola School
District. The $15.5 million, 120-
unit, all-rental development is
expected to break ground this
year, Wolf said.
The School Board approved a
plan to begin building affordable
housing on Sugarloaf School
property on March 19 and is
looking into building on the U.S.
Navy's Sigsbee Park property.
The board will discuss the
responses it received regarding
building at the Trumbo site at a
workshop Tuesday at Coral
Shores High School in Tavernier.


Four projects on table


HOUSING/ From I

Interested builders would
also be bidding on possible
future projects as well, accord-
ing to the request.
Coleman said the bid request
is something that can be used by
the municipalities, as well, a
template to help all local gov-
ernment bodies address the
shortage of affordable housing.
Coleman, Di Gennaro and a
coalition of representatives
from the Keys paid a visit this
week to state officials in
Tallahassee, and affordable
housing was among the major
topics.
"We talked general conceptu--
al needs," Coleman said, "hav-
ing the need to go forward on a
relatively modest scale com-
pared with the mainland. We
need to have a commitment to
borrow forward these [building]
allocations."
J ri, 4< 1, - ., 1) I 'dI I )I I I'


"We're just trying to finally
start doing something instead of
complaining," Di Gennaro said
in describing the request issued
to housing developers. "We
should have done these things
awhile back. But there's no
going back, so let's get the job
done."
The four projects have been
in the hopper for some time.
In October, the County
Commission considered, then
rejected, a proposal to raise the
county's height restriction of 35
feet to entice developers to take
on the four projects.
At the time, developer Lloyd
Boggio, chief executive officer
of the Carlisle Group, told the
commission that allowing just a
few more feet in height would
permit 50 percent more housing,
making the developments more

Keys delegation hits Tallahassee


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Monroe County Mayor Mario
Di Gennaro says he's pleased to
have been able to present some-
thing new to state officials in
Tallahassee: a united front.
"What impressed them the
most up there is we're united
down here," Di Gennaro said.
"The most important thing is the
county is united with the cities."
Keys local governments have
a history of not getting along or
working with each other.
Di Gennaro, whom the
County Commission selected as
its liaison with the state, traveled
to the Capitol Monday flanked by
Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson, Marathon Mayor
Chris Bull and Islamorada Vice
Mayor Mike Reckwerdt, along
with a contingent of staffers.
In a long day of meetings in
the middle of the two-month leg-
islative session, the group talked
with a number of aides as well as
Gov. Charlie Crist and
Department of Community
Affairs Secretary Tom Pelham,
according to Jerry Coleman, a
Keys attorney who's been work-
ing for the county as a housing
consultant, and who made the


trip.
Over the past several years,
state officials have leaned on the
county to keep up with its man-
date to preserve the Keys envi-
ronment by updating sewer sys-
tems and purchasing environ-
mentally sensitive lands. Local
officials have tried to get the state
to pony up the money for these
expensive mandates.
"We talked generally about
cooperation and working toward
same goals," Coleman said.
"Right from the beginning,
[DCA] said there were two things
they needed to partner with the
county. One was a unified, coor-
dinated approach in the Keys, not
the Balkanized approach we've
been showing. The other was that
we need to be working on a
ready-to-proceed basis."
Keys Rep. Ron Saunders, who
joined the meetings in
Tallahassee, says it's crucial the
county be ready to funnel state
funding where it does the most
good immediately.
Monroe County has beeri
under the watchful eye of DCA
since the mid-1970s when the
state deemed it an Area of State
Critical Concern. Over the past

Commission.
Popham said she's wary of the
state limiting local government's
right to address issues of local
importance.
That is a concern shared by
the Florida Association of
Counties.
"County commissions across
the state are very interested in the
issue and concerned about this
amendment being adopted," said
Cragin Mosteller, communica-
tions director for the association.
"They are concerned about
counties being taken out of the
decision-making process over
something that dramatically
affects their communities," she
said.
State Rep. Will Kendrick (R-
Carrabelle) introduced the
amendment, a sentence reading:
"In order to avoid duplication and
inefficiency, no local government
shall enact or enforce a wetland
regulatory program" unless the
county takes over state permit-
ting responsibility entirely.
About 20 Florida counties
issue their own permits for work
that would destroy or harm wet-
lands.


Kendrick told the St.
Petersburg Times that such regu-
lations harm property owners by
requiring them to pay the added
expense of meeting local permit
standards. Many local permits
require little or nothing beyond
the state requirements, he said.
Mosteller disagreed, saying
local wetland regulations usually
are "above and beyond" state and
federal requirements.
"State law doesn't regulate
any wetlands less than a half-
acre," she said. "In many of cases
the involving smaller wetlands,
the county is the last or only line
of defense."
Monroe County does not issue
wetland permits, but is part of the
multi-agency Florida Keys
Wetlands Advance Identification
Project.
Alex Score, a former county
biologist now with the World
Wildlife Fund, says the program
requires officials to notify the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
and the Environmental Protection
Agency when construction work
would affect wetlands.
The state bill actually men-
tions Monroe County by name,
but only in reference to a number
of plants unique to the Keys and
southern Miami-Dade County.


two years, different county offi-
cials have grappled with getting
that oversight withdrawn.
"I was not up there to discuss
de-designation," Di Gennaro said.
The discussions .were broad,

Keys Opinion


I 1IM**FINP.


Habitat is showing

the way to ownership

Sometimes good news slips so far under the radar screen that
even the most careful readers miss a significant breakthrough.
We suspect that explains the lack of attention being paid by
Keys policy makers to the news about Habitat for Humanity's
Big Coppitt development.
As reported last week in Keys Sunday, this sweat-equity-
home-building project will not be like most others we've seen
here in the Keys.
Instead of single-family detached homes, the Big Coppitt
development will have attached units built as duplexes and
triplexes.
Even though we live sheltered lives here in Monroe County,
this approach to controlling land costs by building on smaller
lots has been in play for decades across much of Florida's
urban coast.
Early examples can be found in Miami Lakes, parts of
Hollywood and Fort Lauderdale, even toney Boca Raton.
Habitat's 18 homes on 1.4 acres on Big Coppitt (across from
the Circle K) are slated to begin construction this fall, awaiting
final permit approvals.
But the really big news about this Big Coppitt development
is the price for qualified buyers: mortgage payments under
$1,000 per month.
Note we said "mortgage." These are not rentals and the own-
ers will build equity in these one-, two- and three-bedroom
homes.
What keeps the price affordable is removing the cost of very
expensive land from the equation.
Habitat acquired the property from the Monroe County Land
Authority more. than two years ago. Habitat will continue to
own the land, and carry a long-term lease as part of the deal.
Annual increases in home value will be controlled at 3 per-
cent per year. That way, when one of the families sells and
moves on, Habitat can keep the price affordable for the next
qualified owner.
Some skeptics of land leases complain about "only 3 per-
cent." But that's a better return on a leveraged investment than
many folks earn and is certainly better than renting, which car-
ries no tax advantages or increased equity.
"This truly is affordable housing for a portion of the work-
force our residents depend on everyday," said Bob Calhoun,
executive director for Habitat's Key West and Lower Florida
Keys chapter.
Rather than trying to reinvent the wheel, we urge city and
county officials looking at workforce housing to spend some
time with Calhoun, who has found state funding and tax cred-
its that could jump-start workforce housing now, not next year
or next decade.
Calhoun will explain all this and more at a Key West
Chamber of Commerce workshop scheduled April 24. To
reserve a seat, call the chamber at 294-2587. The cost is $30.
For business owners and public officials looking for answers,
.this may well be the best $30 investment you ever make.

Lopez deserves more than
EDITOR:
For the past several weeks I have heard and
read many stories of families who still are unable
to rebuild their homes after Hurricane Wilma rav-
aged Key West and are now about to lose their
temporary home, a Federal Emergency
Management Agency trailer. I know personally one
such family and the hardships it has encountered.
I am speaking of the Clayton Lopez family.
Clayton Lopez wears many hats. He is a city
commissioner, HIV/AIDS counselor, father, hus-
band, grandpa and friend to many, including
myself. Leaving his District 6 office in the
evenings after working his day job, you will find
him sitting at a table under the awning of his
FEMA trailer, working on one project or another,
holding impromptu meetings and talking with con-
stituents.
His wife, Pam, sits on the other side of table
working to build a day-care center, a much-needed
service in Key West where children will be able to
be nurtured and educated in a loving.environment.
This is a significant piece of the pie much like
affordable housing is to quality of life.
There is a steady interruption of people stop-
ping by, some just to chat, someone in need of
guidance and a listening ear, a constituent with a


a FEMA trailer
complaint or someone he has never met that heard
through the coconut telegraph that if they came to
him, he could help whatever their need. This goes
on way into the night when most people are
already asleep.
While I was happy to see that a Keynoter
reporter took the time to feature the Lopezes in a
recent article regarding hardships they still face,
including eviction from their FEMA trailer, I was
also saddened that it is 2007 and the Lopez family
still is Lving in a FEMA trailer. I was also shocked
and saddened when his own peers voted against
his family being able to apply for a community
block grant to assist victims of Hurricane Wilma
to rebuild their home.
As a former volunteer Habitat for Humanity
coordinator, I have seen houses built from scratch
in a matter of weeks. Key West has many talented
people capable of doing the same thing. I only ask
the people of Key West if it is true, we are One
Human Family.
I know it is. Let us reach out to help and sup-
port our family membersCommissioner Clayton
Lopez and his wife Pam to rebuild the home they
deserve.

With loss of rooms, time to rethink short-term rentals


EDITOR:
As I drive through Big Pine, Iittle Torch and
the side roads of Summerland Key, one thing
stands out pretty strong, ard that is that most of
all the homes are empty and most are for sale. It
seems like everybody has left the Keys and left
their home for sale it sure looks like it. These
empty homes for sale could be making lots of
money.
Over the past few weeks, I have seen thou-
sands of cars heading bumper to bumper toward
Key West. The radio and the newspapers are
reporting a drastic shortage of hotel rooms in Key
West. Vacationers do not have a place to stay
when they get to the Southernmost City.
Some of Key West's hotels are being renovat-
ed and some are switching to condos instead of
"leaving a light on for you." In fact, Key West is
catering less to the weekly stay and leaning more
and more toward trendy townhouses and condo
conversions. So now lots of cars go past empty
homes on Big Pine Key and empty homes on
Little Torch Key and empty homes on
Summerland Key and that is a terrific amount
of money riding along with them, wasted money
that could stay in the Lower Keys if it were

Energy conservation up to us
EDITOR:
Your editorial, "U.S. not serious about
ethanol," discusses the lack of conservation in the
country as if the solution must be mandated by
the government such as by imposing stricter
mileage standards for new vehicles.
Does the individual bear none of the responsi-
bility for conservation?
Better-mileage vehicles are readily available
for sale, but large SUVs and trucks are still the
preferred method of transportation for many
Americans. Let's take some personal responsibili-
ty for challenges facing us, and not look to gov-
ernment to save us from ourselves.

allowed to stay there.
The local chamber of commerce put up a good
fight to keep the short-term renters and keep the
lifeblood of the Lower Keys business community
flowing. All the Lower Keys Chamber of
Commerce does now is talk about the good old
days.
We can fill the gap in our economy, fill beds
in the local area and fill the pockets of the busi-
nesses that are hanging on for just this saving bit
of legislation. The got-miners can rent their
homes too and sell them later when the mar-
ket goes up again. The family from Ohio can
spend its two weeks in a nice home on Big Pine.
I still know some of the families that rented
the place next door, long ago, when short-term
rentals were not against the law, when they were
just the very best economic boon to my commu-
nity.
John Larkin
Big Pine Key

Editor's note: In most cases, county law limits
short-term rentals to no less than 28 days.

Pigeon Key can be more than what it is


EDITOR:
I am writing to set the record
straight on Pigeon Key.
I believe Pigeon Key is a tremen-
dous resource to Monroe County, one
that unfortunately has been neglect-
ed. As I have said on the record, this
property can be more than what it is
today. That does not mean that I am
in favor of developing the island.
However, Pigeon Key is a Monroe
County treasure and we should have
a first-class destination for our resi-
dents and visitors alike. We need to
preserve the historical value of this
great asset for current and future
generations to enjoy and understand
where we came from.
It is regrettable that the old man-
agement of the Pigeon Key
Foundation had lost sight of its
responsibilities, resulting in many
fire violations, cleanup costs and
fines. I look forward to working hand
in hand with Jim Rhyne, chairman of


the Pigeon Key Foundation, and the
new board members. As we move
forward, I want to ensure that this
property will be safe for our resi-
dents and visitors.
I am not trying to break the foun-
dation's lease. However, I am sug-
gesting we take a good hard look at
all the options to ensure this valuable
property is administered well. We
need to also look at the pros and
cons of possibly relocating the Turtle
Hospital to Pigeon Key. The ultimate
goal is to make Pigeon Key a source
of pride for our community.
The Florida Keys are one of this
great nation's most environmentally
and ecologically unique areas. It is
this uniqueness that attracts thou-
sands of visitors every year. I do not
wish to change that; our goal should
be to enhance it.

County impedes home-building efforts


EDITOR:
New-home construction in the
Keys is a joke. I don't know where
to begin.
The Monroe County officials and
state officials should be embarrassed
about the building process here in
the Keys. But as long as their pock-.
ets are getting lined with legal kick-
backs (high permit fees, mitigation
fees and too much more to mention),
they will just keep on the route they
are going.
I never understood why it was so
difficult to build in the Keys until it


was my turn to try for my family.
The building process has financially
taken its toll on a middle-class work-
ing family in the Keys. When will
our elected officials start standing up
for the working people of the Keys?
Many of my friends are leaving;
most of then were born and raised
here.
The officials talk the talk, but
never walk the walk. Don't vote for
anyone; I'd think we'd be better off.
Certainly won't be any worse.

City Council needs to control contracts


EDITOR:
This is a personal letter on behalf
of my friends in Marathon and their
frustration with their city govern-
ment.
They asked: "What can we do to
stop the spending and get a voice in
the government?".
My reply is elect responsible peo-
ple with common and business sense.
Then make sure those people create a
foundation for the future in commit-
tees and offices that are also respon-
sible individuals.
Government needs to be responsi-
ble in terms of health, safety and
controlled spending.
The local government in any
municipality should set the guide-
lines and follow them. Set a limit on
how much a city manager or admin-
istrator can authorize at one time
(under $2,000) and remove any
power to let or bid contracts over
$5,000, except with the approval of
the City Council.
This will stop any issues from
escaping the scrutiny of the City
Council.
Nothing larger than $5,000 should
ever get past the City Council; call
an emergency meeting if necessary.


Why a city the size of Marathon
wouldhave a city manager and an
assistant city manager seems fiscally
irresponsible when a licensed build-
ing official as head of a public works
department and a city administrator
could get a lot more accomplished.
The landscape contract issue has
surfaced elsewhere and the bubba
stuff reared its ugly head. The new
deal will.be a bidding out of the
business to the lowest bidder with a
quality reputation, as should all
municipal business.
The municipal government must
take control of the money. You will
be judged on that ability more. than
anything else.
As I said to my friends in
Marathon, if you do not become part
of the solution, you are part of the
problem.
Elect competent people to the
City Council and hold them to task
to build a foundation for the future,
starting with limited spending and
setting a course for the future. And
the future is further ahead than next
week.

Storm prognostication


can be dangerous game


Some of you may have seen the head-
lines this past week with the hurricane
season forecast from William Gray, a
Colorado State scientist who is fre-
quently quoted for his hurricane predic-
tions.
"Weather experts predict busy hurri-
cane season," one headline read.
Gray's weather team said this year
will bring 17 named tropical storms, of
which nine would become hurricanes.
Likely, not many of you who read or
heard about his "very active" prediction
for the 2007 storm season will remem-
ber he had a similar grim forecast last
year, and was wrong.
At the start of last year's
weather-watch season, Gray
predicted 15 named storms
and seven hurricanes.
By early September, when
his forecast was clearly out
in left field, the Colorado
State guru reduced his fore-
cast.
We finished the season
with one hurricane (Ernesto),
not the seven Gray predicted.
Even more laughable is his Wayne
publicity-seeking risk map- Keynoter
ping, which purports to tell
local communities down to
tenths of a percentage point, their risk of
being visited by a hurricane this year.
That's a lot of hooey.
Even the National Hurricane Center,
with all its leading-edge weather scien-
tists, instrumentation, forecast models
and decades of on-the-job experience
with forecasting doesn't pretend to
those sorts of answers.
If you don't believe me, just ask any
of the folks in Charlotte County, which
became the bull's-eye for Hurricane
Charley Aug. 13, 2004.
Overnight, Charley veered hard right,
missing the 2 million-plus population
cluster around Tampa Bay and slam-
ming into Punta Gorda.
And last year we had Emesto, which
was predicted to hit Texas or Louisiana.
Instead, it hit Plantation Key as a tropi-
cal storm not packing anything like the
hurricane-force winds forecast when the
storm was still south of Cuba.
So when your nervous friends and
family up north call and ask about the
hurricane threat for a visit this summer,
you can safely tell them you don't
know. And neither does Gray.



Keys Sunday has been carrying a reg-
ular and popular feature each week that
tracks real estate sales activity andcom-


pares closings this year versus the same
period last year.
Two weeks ago, we had a chart show-
ing sales were actually above 100 per-
cent of last year's level (actually 116
percent).
How can that be?
Because nine units at the Santa Maria
condo cofiversion all changed hands in
a block of transactions. That skewed the
figures for that one week.
(Separately, a group of investors who
had hoped to sell their contracts for
Santa Maria units have filed suit against
the developer and the real estate broker-
age company, alleging
"deceptive and unfair trade
practices.")
However, the trend line on
Keys sales transaction
reported by Investor Title
Service has been moving up
the past month, averaging
Between 65 and 85 percent of
sales volume recorded last
year.
While that may not sound
like much to celebrate, I
larkham point out the real estate slow-
Publisher down in other parts of the
state is far, far worse.
The St. Petersburg Times
recently carried a report on the Tampa
Bay housing market and the numbers
are not pretty.
"So many for-sale homes continue to
bloat the area real estate market -
nearly 41,000 that sales as a share of
total home listings are at their lowest
point in recent memory," Times staff
writer James Thorner reported.
Adding to misery in the Bay area is a
glut of condos, many built on spec and
with price tags in the $500,000 to $1
million level.
"A lot of the high-end stuff is
extremely soft," according to Ann
Gulberson, president of the Pinellas
Realtor Organization. Quoted in the
Times story, she notes the "average
worker" in the Bay area can't afford
those kinds of prices.
And the real estate speculators who
drove up the volume and pricing in the
first place have mostly disappeared.
We're not out of the woods here in the
Keys by any means, but we're far better
off than areas like Tampa-St. Pete and
the Miami-Dade and Broward metro
areas where overbuilding increased
inventory on top of all the speculative
buyer reserves and flipping.
Home sellers in those areas of Florida
could be looking at another two to three
years of glut before the market corrects
the supply-demand equation.

Keys man's kin


on doomed ship


469-footer
sinks off Greece,
all evacuate
By JESSICA MACHETTA
jmachetta@keynoter.com

James Brooks of Ramrod Key
knew his grandparents were on a
cruise, but said the first news he
heard about a ship sinking in
Greece was when his mom called
and told him not to worry.
"Apparently the cruise line
called up her brother late last
night to let them know they were
OK," said Brooks, a production
assistant at the Keynoter whose
father, Jim, is public information
officer for Naval Air Station Key
West. "But she hasn't talked to
them directly yet. At least not as
of Friday morning."
His grandparents on his moth-
er's side, Jim and D.J. Donahue
of Green Valley, Ariz., were on
"their first international trip in a
while." And it turned into a
doozy.
They were aboard the 469-
foot Sea Diamond, which struck
rocks Thursday in a sea-filled
crater off the island of Santorini,
Greece.
Nearly 1,600 people were
retrieved from the sinking ship in
a three-hour rescue operation; a


Frenchman and his daughter
were still missing Friday.
Some passengers complained
of an insufficient supply of life
vests, little guidance from crew
members and being forced into a
steep climb down rope ladders to
safety.
The ship sank about a quarter-
mile off the island's coast, in
waters of uneven depth, a few
minutes before it was to dock.
Brooks wasn't too worried
about his 70-something grand-
parents' making their way around
Greece, but says his family was
worried about whether they had
their medication or were able to
get some in the Mediterranean
country. News reports stated the
passengers had to abandon ship
immediately and were not able to
grab any personal possessions.
"But on the television they
were saying they had managed to
recover some of the luggage on
the ship," Brooks said, "and
Greece isn't exactly the end of

'Dream home' coming

in the multimillion-dollar catego-
ry.
HGTV's house, according to
the contest Web site, is designat-
ed "The Albright." It will have
deep porches with views of the
Gulf and the development's cen-
tral pool.
Marketing materials for The
Shore show similarly styled
bayfront houses, designated with
famous sporting and fishing
names: Hommell, Knowles,
Navarre, Pope, Wightman,
Brewer and Brothers.
The Shore's Web site says the
development will have 275 feet
of private sandy beach and boat
slips for the exclusive use of
homeowners.
HGTV has built dream homes
in Florida in Rosemary Beach
and Mexico Beach and in
Maine, Maryland, Wyoming and
South Carolina.


The 2007 dream home was
built in Winter Park, Colo., said
Emily Yarborough, public rela-
tions manager for HGTV, and
was worth more than $2.5 mil-
lion.
Viewers submitted more than
41 million entries for the drawing
for that home, Yarborough said.
The winner is selected by random
drawing.
"This is our first tropical loca-
tion," she said of the Islamorada
property. "We look for dream-
like locations."
The sweepstakes period when
entries are accepted will be Jan. 1
until Feb. 18, 2008, Yarborough
said. People can enter the draw-
ing online once a day during that
time.
An hour-long show about the
Islamorada dream house, which
HGTV will probably tape in
September, will premier on Jan. 1,
2008. The home will also be pre-
sented that day on the network's
Web site, www.hgtv.com.

Newly elected Marathon City
Councilman Don Vasil said he
wants residents to do their part to
save the city money by mowing
the grass on property that isn't
technically theirs.
Vasil has sponsored an ordi-
nance to require lawn mainte-
nance on public fights of way,
and it is scheduled for a hearing
before the council at 6:30 p.m.
Tuesday at the Marathon
Government Center.
Although the law has the
potential to save thousands of
dollars in landscaping contracts,
Marathon City Manager Mike
Puto said he has a few concerns
he needs addressed Tuesday.
According to the ordinance,
residents "shall maintain their
property and the city's rights of
way located between the proper-
ty owner's lot and the edge of
pavement of any public street in
a clean, litter-free and mowed
'condition."
The ordinance further states
that if a property owner fails to
maintain the right of way, the
city will notify the owner, who
will have 10 days to "rectify the
condition," or the city will per-
form the necessary maintenance
and assess the cost as a lien
against the property.
Although it's unknown how
the community will react to this
requirement, Vasil said the resi-
dents' feelings are clear to him.
"They want us, the City
Council, to save expenses and
cut some money, and here is an
opportunity for the people to
chip in and help," Vasil said.


"The majority of people are with
me on this, but we'll see what
kind of public response we get
Tuesday."
Vasil first brought up the pro-
posal at the last City Council
meeting two weeks ago. There,
City Attorney Jimmy Morales
said many municipalities, includ-
ing where he lives in Coral
Gables, employ similar require-
ments for right-of-way mainte-
nance.
Vasil said most residents
already maintain rights of way
that seamlessly extend into their
property. He said he cuts his own
right of way at his home on
Sombrero Beach Road and
watches city-hired Gonzalez
Landscaping do the same thing
sometimes days later.
SThe city has a $137,000 con-
tract with Gonzalez for citywide
right-of-way mowing. The coun-
cil is now scrutinizing that con-
tract and how it was renewed.
Puto said he wants to make
sure residents are not encouraged
to trim overhanging tree limbs
and other large-scale mainte-
nance that is still the city's
responsibility in the ordinance.
Puto also said the Gonzalez
contract covers much more than
just mowing grass.
"Gonzalez cuts both sides of
the street, picks up trash,
mulches some of the debris and
reuses it or it goes into dump-
ster," Puto said. "Let's say if I
have a vacant lot and other peo-
ple are throwing garbage onto
my right of way, now I have to
go out and pick that up every day
or I'm breaking the law."

Family sues over island use Me Brie R


Shands Key
at the center
of takings case
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Shands family has made
good on its promise to sue the
city of Marathon for not allowing
development of a home on an off-
shore island or paying the family
$3 million for what it considers a
taking of its land.
Valerie Fernandez, a lawyer
with the Pacific Legal
Foundation, filed the lawsuit in a
Monroe County Circuit Court
Wednesday and is awaiting a
response from city attorneys,
which is required within 20 days.
"Under the Fifth Amendment
to the Constitution, government
can take property for public use,
but they have to compensate the
owners," Fernandez said. "And
when regulations go too far and
restrict all reasonable use, such as
in this case, it is also a taking."
"What is different about this is
case is that usually, the local gov-
ernment wants to avoid litigation,
and they will provide some sort
of administrative relief,"
Fernandez continued. "The cases
don't normally go this far."
The Marathon City Council
denied that administrative relief
in February, when the board
voted 3-2 against a beneficial-use
hearing officer's recommenda-
tion that the city grant a building
permit for one single-family
home on the island or pay $3 mil-
lion in compensation.
According to the beneficial-
use documents, R.E Shands
bought the 8-acre island then
known as Little Fat Deer Key in
1956 for $20,500. Shands later


bought 7 acres of surrounding
bay bottom with the intent of
building a road connecting the
island, renamed Shands Key, to
Vaca Key.
As many as seven single-fam-
ily homes were allowed up until
the county adopted new land
development regulations in 1986,
when the right to build even one
home was extinguished.
The city has since assumed
those same environmental rules
that, basically, only allow one
home per 10 acres of property on
an offshore island.
Rodney Shands said it was his
father's dream to build a family
retreat on the island, and he com-
pleted preliminary design work
before he died of cancer in 1963.
"Your focus changes from
plans for the future with your
family to all of a sudden trying to
survive," said Rodney Shands,
who is the plaintiff in the suit
along with three siblings.
"My mother was 49 with four
children to raise, and we couldfi't
do anything with that island,"
Shands continued. "You never
think anything is going to happen
to land you own title to. You
never think there is a ticking
clock."
Shands said his family didn't
receive any notification of the
1986 land regulation changes,
although the taxable value did
drop from $23,000 to about $791
- reflecting a loss in buildable
qualities.
Shands discovered the
changes two years ago when he
began inquiring about how to
build a dock on the island. He
then learned the only permitted
uses for the island were for camp-
ing, bee keeping or environmen-
tal preservation.


"We're not litigious people.
We never dreamed it would come
to this," said Shands, who is now
a Mississippi judge. "But at the
same time, they have just affec-
tively barred us from using our
island without any compensation
at all."
However, city planning and
legal staff argued there was no
taking since the family still holds
other economic uses for the
islands, such as transferring off
density to another buildable lot,
using the land as points in the
rate-of-growth permitting system
or selling the land to Florida
Forever for conservation.
The findings were enough to
sway Marathon Mayor Chris
Bull, who was the swing vote in
denying the beneficial-use deter-
mination.
"We are trying to have balance
in this community between build-
ing and the environment," Bull
said. "There are some fights we
have to fight to make sure that
balance is maintained. And this is
a case, there's clearly use of the
property and value to the proper-
ty, but it shouldn't be built on."

Keys get a new
FWC K-9 team

What has 36 legs, 12 badges
and six fur coats? Answer: The
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's
2007 K-9 Corps graduating class.
Six dogs and their handlers
graduated Friday from 12 weeks
of training to join 14 other teams
in the FWC's K-9 Corps.
This year's graduates include
Officer Tom Hill and K-9
Jasmine, assigned to Monroe
County.
All the dogs are so highly
trained and motivated in tracking


and wildlife detection, they liter-
ally earn badges, and when they
dig up evidence, it's admissible
in court.
-Since 1989, 36 FWC teams
and nine out-of-state teams have
graduated from the program, and
some dogs may remain in service
10 years.
FWC K-9s are not attack
dogs; they are not trained in
aggression.
Rather, they specialize in find-
ing people and evidence in
wilderness and on the water.
The dogs have proven invalu-
able to FWC officers in detecting
illegally taken game, protected
species and even lobsters.

Bull may bring
swing vote to
council meeting
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
will resume deliberating who
should be the city's next mayor
when the board convenes at 6:30
p.m. Tuesday at the Marathon
Government Center.
The normally quick process
of choosing a mayor among the
sitting .council members turned
contentious two weeks ago,
when no majority decision was
reached and the vote had to be
deferred to this week.
Shortly after the swearing in
of new councilmen Mike Cinque
and Don Vasil, the board split
with Cinque nominating and
voting for Marilyn Tempest,
who voted for herself, and Vasil
nominating and voting for Pete
Worthington, who voted for
himself.
Current Mayor Chris Bull
missed the meeting but could
.hold the swing vote Tuesday -
if he doesn't vote for himself.
"With a 2-to-2 vote, it made it
apparent that there is still some
division," Bull said. "That's
always been part of my strong
suit, to bring people together and


be able to talk to all sides. It may
give me a stronger platform for
Tuesday's vote."
Although largely a ceremoni-
al position, the mayor has the
lead in setting meeting agendas
and dictating council and public
discussions. The mayor also has
the final vote, which could
swing decisions for ordinances.
Other agenda items for
Tuesday's meeting include:
+ Resolutions to renew lease
agreements with owners of the
100th Street Center where the
city rents office space for City
Hall.
The city can either pay
$7,914.49 per month for a three-
year renewal or pay $7,990.59
for a two-year renewal with the
possibility of two one-year
extensions. Both require a $75
monthly payment for water and
sewer. The city now pays
$7,610.09 per month.
Another resolution would
renew a lease for space behind
the 100th Street Center for an
office trailer. That could cost
$567.84 for three years or
$573.30 for two years with
optional extensions.
City Manager Mike Puto said
he will also ask the council to
schedule a workshop to discuss
ongoing plans to build a new
city hall and county library facil-
ity at the Events Field between
98th and 99th streets.

Scales returns,
Slate is new
to the board
By- KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Florida Keys Community
College has a reconstituted
board of trustees as it approach-
es the induction of its new presi-
dent, Jill Landesberg-Boyle, in
August, and begins to create a
strategic plan for the next year.
Thursday, Gov. Charlie Crist
announced his reappointment to
the board of Key West attorney
and former City Commissioner
Ed Scales, and the appointment
of Key Largo dive captain
Spencer Slate.
Both their terms started
Thursday and go to May 31,
2010.
Crist press secretary Kathy
Torian said in an interview that
the governor sought out "people
who he feels are committed to
the position and well qualified"
for the board.
Scales, vice chairman of the
board, was nominated by then-
Gov. Jeb Bush in March 2006,
which fell short of the allotted
time for Senate confirmation.
"My appointment was sort of
limbo," Scales said. "It happens
every time a new governor takes
office."
He was not alone.
For the same reason, Crist


revoked all 283 of Bush's nomi-
nations for state boards in
January. Some of his appointees
were the same, some were not.
When board member Ed
Yacavone was withdrawn from
his appointment, he declined to
reapply for Crist.
Alongside Slate and three
other board members, Scales
will oversee all of the institu-
tion's operations such as approv-
ing the budget, contracts and the
college's strategic plan a doc-
ument that sets the institutions
priorities.
Slate ran for state House in
November and lost in the GOP
primary to David Rice.
College spokeswoman Lydia
Estonez said she is pleased with
the information that Scales is
staying on board, and that Slate
is joining the team. Slate is not
only a businessman, he's civic-

Croc killers sentenced


Garcia orders
probation, fines
and intervention
By JESSICA MACHETTA
jmachetta@keynoter.com


Four men charged with drag-
ging a saltwater crocodile behind
an SUV down a street near the
Monroe and Miami-Dade County
line were given what some would
call a slap on the wrist in court
Tuesday.
Carlos Menendez, 42, Pedro
Morales, 42, Nelson Martin, 38,
Fernando Barizonte, 47, all of
Miami, were accused of captur-
ing an 11-foot American saltwa-
ter crocodile known as Charlie at
Manatee Bay Marina, and drag-
ging it to its eventual death.
According to the Monroe


County State Attorney's Office,
Menendez, believed to be the
owner and driver of the vehicle,
was adjudicated guilty and has
been put on probation for six
months. Circuit Court Judge Luis
Garcia also ordered him to make
a $500 donation to the Humane
Care Coalition in Key Largo.
"It was important to my boss
[State Attorney Mark Kohl] that
the money went to a state-funded
agency rather than an agency that
got any federal funding," said
Matthew Helmerich, spokesman
for Kohl's office. "He will do 48
hours of community service in a
[Miami]-Dade county animal
shelter."
Morales, Martin and
Barizonte will go into a pre-trial
intervention program, pay $500
each to the coalition and com-
plete 25 hours of community
service at a shelter.
Each of the suspects must
write letters of admonition to the
court.
"During their term of PTI, if
they do anything to get in trouble,
the court will have a letter saying
they're really sorry, etc.,"
Helmerich said. "So having that
letter, we hope they will not com-
mit a similar crime, or any crime
for that matter."
At the end of their interven-
tion term, the four men will not
have criminal records.
Helmerich stressed that Kohl's


prosecuting team takes animal
cruelty, cases seriously and
sought the heaviest penalties
allowed given the evidence avail-
able to present to the court.
Michael Cherkiss, a reptile
handler who is contracted by the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission to trap
nuisance alligators and croco-
diles, was called to the scene
where Charlie was found.
Apparently, Helmerich said,
Cherkiss took Charlie home for
the night and took the croc to
Miami Metro Zoo the next morn-
ing, where it died.
Cherkiss kept the head and the
zoo disposed of the body.
The defense also a presented a
letter written by Stephanie
Monnier, a veterinarian at the
zoo.
"The doctor said a necropsy
showed the animal was mortally
ill," Helmerich said. "That it was
entirely coincidental that the croc
died and would have died regard-
less of capture. It was her belief
that the croc would not have lived
out the night even if these kids
hadn't captured it. It had cancer,
and that's why she speculated it
was such an easy catch."
Helmerich added that this is
an unusual kind of crime for
FWC officers to encounter.
"It's not really surprising that
they weren't familiar with the
protocol and procedures used
when investigating a case of this
nature."

Rescued dolphin to give birth


Feds' decision
on their move
coming soon
By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com

Castaway, a deaf dolphin that
was rescued after stranding her-
self Nov. 11, should give birth to
her calf by May 1, according to
the group caring for the marine
mammal.
Art Cooper, chairman of the
Marine Mammal Conservancy in
Key Largo, said it's impossible to
know the exact birth date in
advance.,
"It's different than it is with
people," he said. "It's not an
exact pinpoint. We only have a
rough estimate."
The conservancy has begun
building the birthing pen, accord-
ing to the group's Web site.
The dolphin stranded itself
Feb. 14 off Fort Pierce and was
taken to Mote Marine
Laboratory, which brought it to
the Marine Mammal
Conservancy. Attempted releases
didn't hold.
In a meeting in early March,
the National Oceanic and


Atmospheric Administration's
National Marine Fisheries
Service confirmed the deaf dol-
phin is "non-releasable."
"A dolphin basically views the
world through sound," the con-
servancy Web site states. Without
her hearing, she won't be able to
echolocate, which dolphins use to
find food, communicate with her
pod, find her way or avoid preda-
tory dangers, the group says.
Once an animal is labeled
"non-releasable," Cooper said,
federal law requires they go to a
public-display facility to be cared
for permanently. The conservan-
cy has offered to take Castaway
and her calf permanently.
"She's not your typical display
animal," he said. "She's really
more of an obligation and
expense. She'll probably need
perpetual care."
Theater of the Sea in
Islamorada and the Dolphin
Research Center on Grassy Key
also offered to take Castaway and
her future calf.
The Fisheries Service is
expected to announce by
Wednesday which facility will
receive the dolphins.
Cooper said conservancy


Fugitive takes cops


on chase, is caught


A Key Largo woman took
deputies on a chase early Friday
morning because she's wanted by
the FBI on a federal drug war-
rant, according to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office.
She was stopped after
deputies deployed the Stinger
Spike system that flattens vehi-
cles' tires.
According to Deputy Becky
Herrin, shortly after 1 a.m.,
Deputy Keith Albert was on
patrol when he received a notice
to be on the lookout for a red
Chevrolet Impala. The driver, 27-
year-old Chantal Borguss, was
reported to have a federal warrant
for drug charges and was possi-
bly carrying drugs in her car.
Just minutes later, Herrin said,
he saw the car southbound on
U.S. 1 at mile marker 103. He
turned around and turned on his
lights and siren, and Borguss
pulled over at mile marker 102.5.
Herrin said Albert got out of
his car and as he began giving
instructions to Borguss, she took
off.
Sgt. Lyle Agins joined the
chase. Borguss refused to stop


and began speeding and weaving
in traffic.
Deputy Robert Dosh also
joined the chase, but his patrol
car was hit by another vehicle at
an intersection. He was taken to
Mariners Hospital, where he was
treated for minor injuries.
Due to the potential danger to
others, the chase was terminated
and the deputies turned off their
lights and sirens. They attempted
to keep her in sight, however, and
called for the Stinger Spike to be
set up.
Sgt. Tom Kiffney set it up
mile marker 90. Borguss hit the
spikes and was forced to stop a'
short time later due to flat tires.
She was charged with aggra-
vated fleeing and eluding police,
and received 12 citations for
speeding, and running stop signs
and a red light.
Herrin said marijuana was
found in her car, so she was also
*charged with possession of that.
She also faces the federal drug
charges.


care-givers do not know whether
the calf will be deaf and may not
know for six months to a year
after its birth.
"If the mother had a parasite
or physical genetic defect that
caused her deafness," he said,
"there's no reason to assume that
her calf will be deaf."
Conservancy staff is eager to
see how Castaway will treat the
newborn, he said.
"We're in a guarded situation
at the moment," he said. "We
want to see the calf born and the
mom pick up and do what moms
are supposed to do."
IHe said he's worried because
Castaway is very passive and
doesn't swim around much.
Dolphin mothers have to exude a
lot of energy to take care of new-
born calves for 24 hours a day for
about 30 days after birth.
But Cooper said overall, he's
optimistic about the birth.
"Frankly, I think she looks
great. Her skin tone is great, her
eyes look brighter, she plays well
when she does play," he said.
"She has the physical ability to
take care of her calf. We just hope
she does that."
Cooper also said the conser-
vancy might be able to connect
an acoustic link between
Castaway's pen and the dolphin
pen at Dolphins Plus, another
Key Largo facility where dol-
phins are on display.
He said the connection would
benefit the calf in case it will be
kept permanently at Dolphins
Plus,
"That way it would already be
familiar with those dolphins,"
Cooper said.

Mitigation settles violation


But it will
cost the city
$1.5 million
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


A mitigation agreement
approved by the Key West
Commission this week means the
city must compensate the state
for clearing mangroves without a
permit back in July.
The city has agreed to a three-
year, $1.5 million wetland
restoration and enhancement
project for the Salt Ponds that
will provide mitigation for the
unauthorized work already com-
pleted, as well as any future'man-
grove dredging projects.
Both the city and South
Florida Water Management
District are calling it a "win-win"
solution, said Sandra Walters, an
environmental consultant who's
been working to resolve the issue.
"I don't believe the [city's]
action was done with good inten-
tions to alleviate the flooding...,"
Walters said. The mitigation



What do common medicines
really cost??
A recent report from The Life
Extension Foundation found
the following:
Prilosec, which costs consumers
$360.97 for 100 tabs cost the
company 50 cents per tab.
Norvasc costs consumers
$188.29 for 100 tabs. It costs the
company 14 cents per tab.
Prozac costs consumers $247.47
for 100 tabs. It cost the company
11 cents per tab.
Yes, research and development
costs money. However, is the
final mark-up really justified?

"addresses environmental needs
and proper storm water control."
The agreement requires the
city to plant mangroves and
restore and monitor wetlands in
areas such as the West Salt Ponds
and the Riviera Canal.
Restoration of the Hawk Missile
Site must be completed within six
months.
Assistant City Manager John
Jones said removing mangroves
in the canal basin fronting the
Key West Police Department was
an emergency due to mangrove
roots that had blocked seven out-
fall pipes used to drain excess
water from the streets into basin.
According to Walters, the
city's situation is "not at all
uncommon." Plenty of munici-
palities, she said, believe they are
doing what's best for the environ-
ment and the community, and the
prospect of up and coming hurri-
canes made people especially
anxious in this circumstance.
"The neighborhood was con-
cerned with flooding," she said.
Walters said the Water
Management District and U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers are
able to issue emergency permits
in the event an area needs speedy
dredging or any other kind of
maintenance, but those projects


completed by emergency permit
still have to be mitigated.
"The bad news is that we are
getting fined $1.5 million in
costs," Jones said. "The good
news is that it will pay off tenfold
in the future."
Jones said if the city pursued
the necessary permits for the
mangrove removal, it would've
been a lengthy process.
"It would have probably taken
us ten more years and God knows
how much it would have cost,"
he said. "The punishment is pret-
ty severe, but we understand."
Jones also mentioned that a lot
of the work must be completed
before the hurricane season
begins, which is June 1.
Naval Air Station Key West
has taken all necessary steps to
get its mangrove dredging project
off the ground. The Navy started
the process in August 2004 to
obtain the necessary permits,
NAS spokesman Jim Brooks said.
"We've spent over a million
dollars so far and we haven't cut
a mangrove yet," he said.
Brooks said a decision will be
made in July concerning the
terms of the project and when it
will begin.
The City Commission did
have the option to not approve
the mitigation, but that would
result in costly legal proceedings.


TDC's hurricane


efforts are rewarded


Award given
at national
conference

The creation of an innovative
hurricane safety partnership
between the Monroe County
Tourist Development Council
and Florida Keys emergency
management officials was hon-
ored Thursday at the National
Hurricane Conference in New
Orleans.
During the conference's
annual awards' program, the
TDC and its media relations
director, Andy Newman, were
awarded an Outstanding
Achievement Award for Public
Awareness.
The awards committee the
cited TDC's proactive tourism
hurricane safety program' to
communicate the need for visitor
evacuations in the event of an
approaching storm.
It's the first time in the nearly
30-year history of the awards


program that a tourism entity has
been honored, according to
David Tait, the conference's
coordinator.
"I am gratified for the recog-
nition that is reflective of [the]
TDC's philosophy to not bury
heads in the sand when it comes
to hurricane safety," Newman
said. "The initiative would not
have been possible without the
support of so many county,
municipal and meteorological
officials, as well as the Keys
tourism industry as a whole."
The program was developed
in spring 1998 and features a
multi-pronged communications
plan designed to reach Keys vis-
itors with information of any
impending evacuations.
One component of the TDC's
Web site features hurricane safe-
ty pages, complete with a down-
loadable brochure that visitors
can print prior to their Keys trips,
to provide information and relat-
ed resources.

Contractor
for facade
being replaced
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The local judiciary is likely
convinced its new digs are
jinxed.
After giving an extra two
weeks for a contractor to pro-
vide necessary paperwork,
Monroe County is now rebid-
ding the facade work on the
new Freeman Justice Center on
Whitehead Street in Key West.
"We got this company
through the fast track," County
Engineer David Koppel said,
"and we're going to do some-
thing similar now. Only this
time we'll have the front-end
language the way we want it."
Koppel has been counseling
the County Commission against
rebidding the project in hopes
that Pavers and Stone Inc.
would provide the performance
and payment bond required by
its contract with the county.
He held out hope, he said, to
save the county money.
"We have some preliminary
bids," Koppel said, "and it
looks like we're half a million
dollars over" the bid by Pavers
and Stone.
The County Commission
approved a $1.1 million bid to
texture the outside of the new
building with brick and stone
last August.
However, in February,
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton asked the commission


to cancel the contract because
the company was unable to
secure a bond and begin the
work. At Koppel's request, the
commission set an April 4
deadline for compliance, which
the company missed.
The Freeman Justice Center,
conceived in the early 1990s,
has been fraught with slow-
downs and price increases.
Initially expected to cost
around $4 million, the cost is
now expected to exceed $13
million. Since construction
began in 2004, the county fired
the project's architect Jose
Gonzales, and nearly replaced
its primary contractor The
Tower Group.
In the meantime, Circuit
Court Judge Wayne Miller has
been making monthly pilgrim-
ages to the County Commission
meetings, pleading that the
work be finished. The current
courthouse, he says, is leaking
sewage and flooding court pro-
ceedings.
"The rest of the project is
going forward," Koppel said.
"We're working feverishly
inside, hanging sheetrock, fin-
ishing the electric and so forth."
He still hopes for a July
move-in date for the judges,
and says furniture-for the new
building can be moved in soon-
er.
"The facade will take three
to four months to put up," he
said. "That could affect the
opening, but we hope not
because it's only an exterior
facade like stucco'."

A lot of new development is
looming on Monroe County's
horizon, but the county's
Planning Commission is poised
to make sure it fits somewhat
- with the character of the Keys.
The commission convenes
Wednesday at 10 a.m. at the
Marathon Government Center.
On tap are a set of aesthetic
guidelines for the wave of the
future boat barns.
"We can't have big ugly tin
buildings all over the place,"
Planning Commissioner Donna
Windle said.
As access to waterfront gets
more scarce, boat barns like
the behemoth at the old Coral
Lagoon near Vaca Cut on
Marathon's oceanside seem to
be growing in popularity. Yacht

Council is expected to discuss

and respect the community's his-
toric architectural character."
"A .buildings scale and
massing can create monolithic
structures that are visually
degrading [to] the community."
The guide suggests varying the
buildings' height, width and vol-
ume; and limiting width to 250
feet, broken up every 50 feet; and
avoiding "monolithic, box-like
shapes."
Encourage the use of trel-
lises and covered porches to
break up the mass.
Pitched roofs and even
rooftop landscaping is encour-
aged.
Landscaping should be
used to soften the outline of the
structure and provide safe
buffers.
County officials are grappling
with the dwindling access to the
waterfront and the disappearance
of traditional working waterfront
where commercial fishermen
have made the Keys one of the
most economically prosperous
ports in the county.
Even so, real estate values are
fast luring property owners to
sell out to developers looking to
make more than provided by tra-
ditional marine uses.
"It's unfortunate that the
dockominium craze is displacing
a lot of our commercial fishing
facilities," said DeeVon Quirolo,
executive director of Reef Relief.
"My concern is that the fishing
industry is being squeezed out.
This exponential growth is dis-
placing a very important compo-
nent of our economy."
If adopted, county planners
would use the guidelines while
working toward permitting new
and redeveloped properties.

$8.4M trash site planned


City facility
is going on
Rockland Key
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Key West officials agree the
city is long overdue for a new
waste-management facility.
-What's less agreeable is the cost
of the project.
The City Commission on
Tuesday passed a resolution to
spend $8.4 million to build a
solid-waste transport facility on
Rockland Key, under the condi-
tion that General Services
Director David Fernandez
attempt to negotiate a lower, less-
daunting cost with contractor
Douglas N. Higgins Inc.
Some city officials believe the
price is a necessary evil.
"I don't care if it cost $50 mil-
lion we need it built,"
Assistant City Manager John
Jones said. "Right now, we don't
have a choice."
Others expressed disappoint-
ment with the direction Key West
waste management is taking.
"This thing has really gone
south from Day 1,"
Commissioner Bill Verge said.
"We're certainly getting taken
advantage of."
Verge mentioned that it cost
more than $3 million just to pur-
chase the land for the building -
apart from the $8.4 million in
construction costs.
The facility will serve as a
replacement to the previous
waste-to-energy plant on Stock
Island that's now being used as a
transport facility to haul off 150
to 200 tons of garbage to
Broward County a day. Use of the
facility's incinerator ceased in
2004, after the city was pressured
to close it from neighboring con-
dominiums, Verge said.
It's beside the 140-foot land-
fill also known as Mount Trash-
more, Florida Keys Community
College, the Monroe County
Detention Center and the Key
West Gulf Club.
Jones said residents of the
condos and members of the golf
club often complain of their
neighbor's stench. The condos
were constructed after the incin-
erator.
The Stock Island transfer
facility will be torn down to make
way for a $6 million bus depot.
Verge argued this facility
could've been upgraded to satisfy
its neighbors rather than con-
structing a whole new facility.
But Ed Scales, a city pommis-
sioner at the. time. he incinerator


shut down, said the cost of
upgrading the waste-to-energy
facility for the emissions to meet
the requirements of the Clean Air
Act would reach $15 million.
"We got complaints from
everybody in the city," Scales
said. "I remember there was a
very pungent smell when that
thing was burning."
Fernandez said a site selection
process ensured a construction
location far away from condos or
schools, and that he will attempt
to settle a lower cost.
"The contractor has agreed to
talk to us and work with us," he
told commissioners. "We'll do
our best to negotiated it down ...
but I can't guarantee any num-
ber."
Public Works Manager RB
Havens said at the meeting that
another option is to re-bid the
contract, which could take
around nine months. But with the
rising cost of asphalt and other
construction materials, the city


could end up spending more in
the long run, he said.
Fernandez .said the building
will be used to load the waste and
transfer it out of Key West. The
goal, he said, is to not have waste
there for more than 24 hours.
The facility will also be
indoors to keep birds away. Birds
could endanger pilots taking off
and landing at the nearby Naval
Air Station runway.
"You don't want multimillion-
dollar jets flying through turkey
vultures," bases spokesman Jim
Brooks said.
Another concern raised by
officials is the possibility of a
hurricane shutting down the
bridge and keeping the transit
vehicles on the island, along with
its contents heaps of trash.
Despite what others call posi-
tives with the plan, Mayor
Morgan McPherson said he has a
difficult time seeing past such a
large sum of money.
"$8.3 million dollars is steep,"
he said. "...I don't care how you
look at it."

The days are numbered for

The popular gay-friendly

said he's still unsure whether

"This is more than a place to

your heartstrings to think of it

have to look at it as one.chapter
closing and another opening."
To show their appreciation
for the longtime patrons and
employees of Atlantic Shores,
Browning said owners are plan-
ning some kind of farewell
event.
"We're not just going to
close the doors on this place,"
he said. "We're gong to coordi-


nate with some local charity to
organize some kind of
blowout."
New Noon Management
Group originally planned to
redevelop Atlantic Shores into
luxury condominiums, but the
development plans encountered
harsh criticism and a lawsuit
from neighboring community
members over the design.
The project sat idle for more
than a year, until owners decid-
ed to redesign the project as a
hotel.
"We went back to [the city's
Historical Architectural Review
Commission] and got their
ideas for what might be more
appropriate," Browning said.
"We want to be good neighbors
and enhance Key West. What
we've come up with is even
more typical of what is found in
the historic district of town than
the kind of South Beach art
deco design of Atlantic Shores."
Along with Atlantic Shores,
New Noon Management Group
also owns Roy's Trailer Park on
Stock Island, Old Town Self
Storage and various commercial
and rental properties throughout
the Keys.

Reef Doctor gets his di


Honors keep
coming for
pioneer Hudson
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Harold Hudson, renowned as
the "Reef Doctor," has never
been the type to seek the spot-
light. This year, he cannot escape
it.
A cascade of commendations
and honors has been bestowed
upon the man credited with pio-
neering the art and science of
restoring.coral reefs.
As part of its 20th anniversary
celebration April 16, Reef Relief
will present Hudson with its
Lifetime Achievement Award.
"Harold Hudson is responsible
for the stabilization and recovery
of more living coral than any
other individual," Reef Relief
founder Craig Quirolo has said.
Earlier this year, Hudson was
named a 2006 winner of the
National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration's
Distinguished Career Award.
"This is a very high honor for
NOAA to bestow on Harold for
his lifetime of achievements on
corals and coral reefs," said Billy
Causey, regional director of the
National Marine Sanctuaries
Program. "I cannot think of a bet-
ter person to receive this much-
deserved recognition."
In February,, Hudson flew to
"V$id' P-"t r 11.i < t;I


ENVIRON MtneNTf"oa
Germany to
accept an hon-
orary doctor-
ate from the
University of
Frankfurt for
his work using
coral samples
to chart cen-
HUDSON tries of "coral
HUD t health, and
environmental impacts of pollu-
tants on coral reefs."
Hudson received his moniker
as "Reef Doctor" for his efforts to
preserve living corals damaged
by ship grdundings or storms.
Rather than let shattered corals


die, he collected pieces and
experimented with transplanting
them.
In 2001, Hudson led a team
that carefully built 22 large reef
modules of limestone and con-
crete to be placed at the Molasses
Reef site scarred by the destruc-
tive grounding of the freighter
Wellwood in 1984. His modules
were designed to attract sea life,
including new corals.
His innovative design inspired
the Reef Ball Foundation to cre-
ate a similar structure it calls the
Harold Hudson Layer Cake for
use in reef-restoration efforts
around the world.
Reef Ball in March dedicated
a special module to Hudson at a


'Reef Doctor'
Harold Hudson
has been
honored
numerous times in
numerous places
including on
this reef module in
Cayman Islands
waters.

special brass plaque reads, "'The

Thanks You;"
Hudson spent much 'of his
early career with the U.S.
Geological Service, working to
map reef systems. He joined the
Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary staff in 1989 as a
"restoration specialist."
The mooring-ball system now
used worldwide to protect reefs
from anchor damage was
designed by Upper Keys sanctu-
ary manager John Halas, using
coral-drilling techniques devel-
oped by Gene Shinn and Hudson.

Hudson's
design. The
foundation
dedicated
the module,
and dozens
more, to
Hudson at a

site.

Cyclists take Smart Ride to Keys


AIDS Help
among agencies
getting funds
By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com


The fourth annual Smart
Ride, a 165-mile bike ride from
Miami to Key West, raised
hundreds of thousands' of dol-
lars for AIDS/HIV organiza-
tions last weekend.
This year's Smart Ride was
March 30 and 31. Each rider is
required to raise $1,200 and all
S proceeds go to HIV/AIDS
agencies including AIDS Help
of the Keys, Broward House,
S HUG Me and the South Beach
AIDS Project, according to
information released by organ-
izers.


Two-hundred riders and 163
crew members came out for the
ride, said Steve Jerge, one of
the original Smart Ride organ-
izers, raising more than
$381,055 for AIDS founda-
tions.
In its four years, the ride has
raised more than $1.25 million,
he said.
"We started the ride a little
over four years ago with the
purpose of making a difference
and getting money to organiza-
tions without administration
costs," he said.
Half the money each rider
raises gets dispersed evenly
between all the organizations
and the riders are allowed to
distribute the other half as they
see fit.
Jerge said Smart Ride


organizers wanted to be sure
that some of the money went
back to local organizations, so
they donated $10,000 to the St.
Stephens Outreach Ministry in
Coconut Grove and to the
Center for Positive
Connections.
According to the riding
schedule, riders gathered at the
MorningStar Renewal Cenfer
in Pinecrest March 29 for reg-
istration, dedication cere-
monies and a Carbohydrate
Festival dinner.
On March 30, the ride began
after opening ceremonies at
6:30 a.m. and continued until
2:30 p.m. when closing cere-
monies commenced at the
AIDS Memorial at the White
Street Pier on Duval Street.
Jerge said every rider who
started the ride crossed the fin-
ish line.

THE ULTIMATE

REAL ESTATE EXPERIENCE
When you are buying high-end real estate, it is only natural to expect the process to be a memo-
rable event. A skilled real estate broker can maximize the ease and pleasure of your purchase by
handling every aspect of the luxury transaction. You need someone who has lived in the Keys for a
while and has had similar experiences that you seek.
Your search for a suitable property will be enjoyable when you work with a broker who has a
thorough knowledge of the local inventory of homes and the characteristics of the area. If you are
a boater interested in buying a multi-million dollar home on the water, you will want a broker to
give you a complete description of the shoreline, control depth and accessibility in a particular loca-
tion so you can decide if it meets your needs. Your broker will show you properties that exclusively
fit the architectural style, square footage, views and amenities you prefer, and preserve your privacy
during the transaction.
A knowledgeable realtor will be able to offer you a taste of the lifestyle you will purchase along
with your luxury home.
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, graduate and Board Member of Leadership Monroe County, and a member
of Islamorada Acquisition Advisory Committee.

Dolphins get


revenge


against Canes


Marathon looking
to surge into
softball playoffs
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
softball team exacted some
revenge against the
Hurricanes of Coral Shores on
Wednesday, when the
Dolphins defended their home
field in a 5-3 win that coach
Jason Frank said should've
been an even wider margin.
"We played down to their
level, and that's why it was a
close game," Frank said. "But
it was still good to beat them."
The win avenges a March
contest in Islamorada where
the Dolphins led 3-0 going
into the final inning and
allowed Coral Shores to knock


in four runs to claim the win.
But this time, the Dolphins
remained poised behind solid
pitching from hurler Megan
Gardner and good defense.
Freshman outfielder Shelby
Kuck made the play of the
game with a diving catch to
prevent Hurricanes scores.
Offensively, Kuck contin-
ued her ability to "always be
on base," Frank .said, and
added to solid hitting perform-
ances from Abi Meyer and
Alexis Culver.
Culver hit a deep bomb to
center field, which was caught
but out far enough to bring
home key runs. Meyer later
blasted a deep double good for
two more RBI.

Palladino slams
three-run homer

After the Key West High
School softball team had bro-
ken a 2-2 tie with four runs in
the bottom of the third inning,
Marathon coach Jason Frank
turned to a Dolphins fan as he
walkedd toward the third-base
coaching box, shrugged and
.said:
"'They had four good hits.
What can you do?"
The visiting Dolphins did
all they could Tuesday after-
noon, but still lost, 10-3, at the-
Back Yard. They fared better
than they had in an 18-8 loss
to Key West earlier in the sea-
son.

desire.
As early-evening' shadows
lengthened and the outcome of
the game was all but decided,
the Dolphins scored a final
run in the seventh inning and
had the bases loaded when the
final out was made.
"They played a great
game," Frank said of his team.
"Down 10-3 in the seventh
inning with the bases loaded,
what more could you ask for?
We just had that one bad
inning."
An RBI double by Ashley
Henriquez and a run-scoring
ground ball by Heather
Palladino put the Conchs (12-
8) ahead 2-0 in the first.
Marathon strung together hits
by Sarah Melia, Shelby Kuck,
Sandahl Stephens and Alexis
Culver to tie the game, 2-2, in
the top of the third.

Grewe didn't appear too
happy with some of the
umpire's strike calling at the
plate, although Frank said the
inconsistent strike zone affect-
ed both teams.
"It was all over the place. I
mean Megan, who throws
strikes all the time, walked
three or four batters in a two-


inning span. That's pretty
unheard of," Frank said. "But
you take what you get. It was
consistent on both sides."
The win puts Marathon at
9-6 for the season and looking
especially strong heading into

Heriquez moves to Lexington


Former Conch
starts season
with a triple
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

After two seasons with
Greeneville, Tenn., in the
Rookie Appalachian League,
catcher Ralphie Henriquez has
been elevated by the Houston
Astros to their Class A South
Atlantic League team in
Lexington, Ky.
The former Key West High
School star, who turns 20
today, made an impressive


debut Thursday night, hitting a
two-run triple as the Legends
defeated the Delmarva
Shorebirds of Salisbury, Md.,
4-2, before 6,000 fans who
braved temperatures in the
30s.
Henriquez is expected to
share time behind the plate
with Max Sapp, the Astros'
first-round pick last year.
Last year at Greeneville,
Henriquez hit .231 with five
home runs. Houston chose him
in the second round of the
amateur draft in 2005 after
leading Key West to a state
championship.


Henriquez also shined on
defense Thursday night,
thwarting a delayed steal
attempt with two runners on in
the second inning. After a
strikeout, he threw the ball to
the shortstop who threw back
to Henriquez who lunged to
his left and tagged the sliding
runner at the plate.
"That kind of started every-
thing, turned the momentum
around," he told the Lexington
Herald-Leader."
One of Henriquez's team-
mates is third baseman Koby
Clemens, son of Roger
Clemens, the Hall of Fame-
bound pitcher who was at
Thursday night's game -

Belen maintains


its dominance


-Wolverines again
defeat baseball
Conchs
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Belen Jesuit continued its
recent baseball mastery over Key
West High School with a come-
from-behind 6-2 victory
Thursday night in a District 16-
4A game at Rex Weech Field.
The Miami school has now
won four of the last five meetings
with the Conchs.
The teams will meet again at
Belen later this month in the dis-
trict semifinals. The victory
ensured the Wolverines (15-5, 6-
2 in district) of being the home
team in that game.
Key West (11-7, 3-4) took a 1-
0 lead in the first inning on Raiko
Alfonso's 320-foot opposite-field
home run, a fly ball that dropped
over the left-field fence just
inside the foul pole.
SThe Conchs added another run
in the. second when Alfred
Rahming running for Louie
Pazo, who had singled scored
from third base when pitcher
Mario Rojas fielded a weak
grounder by Artie Grizzle and
threw wildly to first.
Junior pitcher Blayne Weller
held the potent-hitting
Wolverines scoreless through the
first four innings, and the Conchs
gave no hint that disaster was
about to befall them.
With runners at second and
third and no outs in the fifth,


Chris DeGoti grounded toward
third baseman Charlie Walker-
Yhap, who allowed the ball to go
through to left field as two runs
scored. DeGoti went to third on a
wild pitch and scored when
Adrian Lorenzo hit a ball that
second baseman Frankie Ratcliff
could only knock down.
SAnother run scored when
Weller threw wildly to first base,
and the inning's fifth unearned
run came home on a single by
Eric Cos.
"They're not even hitting the
ball off the barrel [of the bat],"
Key West coach Miguel
Menendez fumed, but the red "5"
on the newly fixed stadium
scoreboard stood out for all to
see.
Offensively, Key West could-
n't solve relief pitcher Andres
Wiltz, a 220-pounder who came
on in the third with two outs and
two on. He struck out Kyle
Lepine to end that threat, then, to
the disappointment of a hushed
crowd, allowed only two hits
over the next four innings.
The Conchs played the
Wolverines a lot better than they
did in a 13-3 loss earlier in the
season, a fact that Menendez
noted after the game.
"It got away from us in that
one inning, but I'm confident we
can still beat them," he said.
Key West will conclude a two-
game series against Naples at 8
tonight at Rex Weech Field. The
Conchs will play host to Mater
Academy at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the
final regular-season district game.

match time for our kids who are
not in the top five," Fry said.
"We have several excellent first-
year players who could play in
the top positions. When we have
moved them [into singles], they
have won effortlessly."
He added, "This is a great
problem to have. Our next sever-
al years looklto be very strong in
girls tennis."
In doubles, Allison Rhyne
and Annie Leopold won, 8-0;
and Simona Lichvar and Hannah
Padgett won, 8-0.
The boys improved to 2-9
with the win at St. Brendan.
Emmett Walsh at Coral
Shores' No. 1. was, defeated. by,


Juan Gonzalez, a highly regard-
ed player from Panama. Keller
Fitzpatrick also fell at No. 3.
"The remainder of the team
picked up the slack and won
their matches, locking in the
win," Fry said.
Dylan Moeller at No. 2 won,
8-3; Zack Stroup at No. 4 won,
8-11; and Aaron Holmbraker at
No. 5 won, 8-4. The Canes won
both doubles matches.
SCoral Shores wraps up the
regular season this week with
trips to Westminster Christian on
Monday and to Gulliver Prep on
Wednesday.
The Conch Cup Tournament
in Key West was rained out
Friday. It's rescheduled for 9
a.m. Thursday at the Higgs

Key West falls into

groove against Fins


CONCHS / From 32

by Trish Wise -and Jianna
Hernandez, and climaxed
when Palladino drove a
Megan Gardner pitch over the
left-field fence for a three-run
homer.
"She crunched that ball,"
Frank said later. "That had to
have had a stewardess on it or
at least a tail number on the
back of it."
Key West, which had only
two hits in two losses last
weekend to Riverdale, fell
back into a hitting groove
against Gardner's soft tosses
and reached her for 13 hits.
Marathon had six hits against
Lindsay Yochum
The Conchs extended their
lead to 8-2 in the fourth on
RBI singles by Hernandez and
Victoria Commander. They
added single runs in the fifth
- on a triple by Allison Baker
and a single by Yochum -
and in the sixth on a pop-fly
single to left by Kristen
Babich.
Key West was poised to
score more and end the game
on the 10-run mercy rule, but
Culver, a three-sport athlete,
dove to her right from her sec-
ond-base position and snagged
Lauren Wells' liner up the
middle.
Yochum, who had 10
strikeouts, had to labor much
,of the game, because the


Dolphins, led by Abi Meyer,
may have set a record for foul
balls. By the seventh, the
sophomore seemed sun-
drained, walking two batters,
throwing a wild pitch and giv-
ing up an RBI single to Kelly
Struyf.
But with the bases loaded,
Yochum struck out Yari
Alpizar to end the two-hour
game and send Key West on
its trip to the Kissimmee
Klassic with high hopes.

A Klassic win
The Conchs used two big
innings Thursday night to
defeat Tallahassee Leon, 14-
12, in the first round of the
Kissimmee Klassic at the
Osceola County Sports
Complex.
Key West, which improved
to 13-8, scored six runs in the
fifth inning on singles by
Kristen Babich, Allison Baker
and, Jianna Hernandez, and
triples by Lindsay Yochum
and Ashley Henriquez.
The Conchs added five runs
in the sixth and one more in
the seventh on a -home run by
freshman Lauren Wells.
Yochum, who relieved
Henriquez on the mound in the
second inning, struck out eight
batters and was the winning
pitcher.
The Conchs will continue
in the tournament today after
playing Tampa Gaither in a
game late Friday night.

Dolphins end


losing streak


Eigner pitches
a gem in 9-3
win Wednesday
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
baseball team's seven-game los-
ing streak came to an end
Wednesday with a decided victo-
ry over Miami Country Day, 9-3,
behind the capable pitching of
sophomore Toby Eigner.
"Outstanding, just outstand-
ing," coach Luis Leal said of his
No. 1 ace, who allowed only four
hits and struck out five.
"Toby's looking really good
now that he's making some
adjustments," Leal added. "He
realized in the first inning he left
a change up high across the plate,
and I didn't even have to tell him
for him to change that. He's
maturing."
Country Day, which handed
Marathon a 6-5 loss earlier in the
season, scored all its runs in the
first inning on two Marathon
fielding errors.
In every other inning, Eigner
sat down the first three hitters
with easy outs, except in the final
inning, when it took five hitters to
end the game.
Eigner's 1.00 ERA for the day
puts his season ERA at 2.80
through six contests, most of
them going the full seven
innings. He is now 3-2 on the
year.
The Dolphins (3-9) backed up
Eigner with solid defense after
the first inning and some
mighty bats led by juniors J.P.
McCabe and Sean O'Connor,
who are jousting in the stats
books for offensive player of the
year.
McCabe is leading the
Dolphins with a .457 batting


average slightly above
O'Connor at .432, although he is
boasting a team-leading .649
slugging percentage thanks to a
triple and two home runs padding
his stats.
As a sophomore last year,
O'Connor led the Dolphins in
nearly every offensive category
and was named honorable men-
tion all-state by the Florida
Sports Writers Association.
Following just behind in the
stat book is junior Chris Garrett,
who smacked a two-RBI single
in the first inning when the
Dolphins trailed 3-0.
In the second, Mike Kuck (3-
for-4) led with a single, stole sec-
ond and scored on a single by Jay
Hegland (2-for-4).
O'Connor (2-for-4) added an
RBI in the fourth and McCabe
(2-for-4) knocked in two more in
the fifth. Kuck ripped another
two-RBI blast to end the scoring
in the sixth. Other hits and runs
were scattered throughout the
innings.
The 14-hit day was needed,
Leal said, for a team looking to
gain a first-round win against
Palmer Trinity in the District 16-

ICS Eagles drop two close ones


Princeton

is visiting

on Tuesday
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Island Christian's baseball
Eagles moved two runners into
scoring position in the bottom of
the seventh inning Thursday, but
could not catch visiting Zion
Lutheran in a 6-5 loss.
It was the second close loss for
the Eagles this week, following a
7-5 setback Tuesday at
Champagnat Catholic in Miami.-
"We continue to improve in
every game, and that's all I can
ask," head coach Tony Hammon
said. "We still have a good chance
of going into the [District 16-A]
Tournament with a .500 record."
Tuesday, the Eagles (5-7)
found themselves in a 4-0 hole
after visiting Zion Lutheran of
Deerfield Beach capitalized on a
shaky start by ICS mound ace
Aaron Izaguirre.
Five walks and two hits gave
Zion four scores in the top of the
first, but Izaguirre found his pitch
and threw well the rest of the
way. He closed with 10 strikeouts
and allowed just five hits.
The Eagles battled back and
caught Zion in the fifth, going
ahead 5-4 when second baseman
Tim Globus had a leadoff single
to spark a two-run rally.
Zion answered with a two-hit,
two-run stanza in the top of the
sixth, with the 7-5 score standing
up as the final.
The Eagles had a quick three-
and-out sixth, but Globus opened
the seventh with a solid single.
He was erased on Aaron
Izaguirre's fielder's choice, but a
walk to Matthew Izaguirre and a
stolen base by Izaguirre put run-
ners on second and third with one
out.
Zion (10-4) closed out the
inning and game with a strikeout
and routine grounder.
"I'll second guess myself for
the last inning," Hammon said.
"There was a chance at the sui-
cide squeeze [bunt] to score the
tying run, but I thought there was
a better chance to let our guys hit


away."
Island Christian played well
defensively. Phillip Izguirre and
Globus turned a double play, and
catcher Lorenzo Arce picked off a
runner at first. In the seventh,
Matthew Izaguirre at first
stretched to catch a wayward
throw and fell backward but
made the catch and kept his foot
on the bag.
The Eagles had a five-hit
offense, Phillip Izaguirre and
Globus each getting two singles.
Arce had the fifth hit, coming in a
two-run fifth inning rally.
At Champagnat, the Eagles
quickly fell behind, 6-1.
They started to mount a come-
back in the third, with singles by
Aaron Izaguirre and Matthew
Izaguirre leading a three-run
stanza.
In the seventh, the Eagles got
a triple from Phillip Izaguirre and
an RBI double by Globus, but
could draw no closer.
"That game was ours to win,"
Hammon said. "We played well,
but so did Champagnat."
Island Christian plays a home
game against longtime South
Florida Christian Conference
rival Princeton at 4 p.m. Tuesday.
Sagemont, defending champi-
on of Broward County's District
15-A, plays at Island Christian at
4 p.m. Thursday.

bro) and his army. His army usu-
ally won, unless by some stroke
of Yoda genius (and my brother
giving me the occasional break),
my crew would take over and
rule the galaxy.
And yeah, I brought in Han,
Luke and a Storm Trooper this
week to share the force with me
while writing this column.
No one else in the office has
divulged who they're voting for
yet, but the discussions did
segue into an impromptu Geek
Off.
E-mail from Caroline
Drumheller, circulation goddess:
"Call me old school, slave to
the classics, or just an all but
geek, but I would much rather
read the book than see the
movie. My imagination likes to
run, so when I read 'Star Wars'
... yes, read 'Star Wars,' I was
struck at how George Lucas
would take scientific facts and
use them to advance his imagery.


Trivia question: What planet in
our solar system is most like
Luke Skywalker's home planet
of Tatuiin? Lucas described the
gaseous make-up, the orbit
around the sun, and the distance
from the nearest planet. Give
up? He based Tatuiin on Venus..I
have way too much time on my
hands."
That proceeded into a discus-
sion on the "Dune" series books,
an argument over who can or
cannot be out-geeked, and final-
ly, a brief re-enactment from
"Clerks 2."
I used to with one guy in

Keys hippies 'Come Together'


John Lennon art
exhibition raises
money for AIDS

A ll the southernmost aging
hippies "Came Together"
to sway to John Lennon
music and view the exhibit of
his artwork and handwritten
lyrics on Duval Street last week-
end.
I was uneasy about going,
thinking the traveling exhibit
would be a hyper-commercial-
ization of poor dead Lennon's
artificially shortened life.
Actually, it was that, but it
was also a window into the cre-
ative visual expressions of an
icon known mostly through his
music and words. The Web site
for the show, www.johnlennon
artwork.com, reveals Lennon
attended Liverpool Art Institute
for three years before the inter-
national spotlight focused on the
Beatles.
Lennon's drawings were
sweet and touching. Lainie
Davia, a partner in the nearby
SoDu, the newest gallery in the
South Duval district, described
them as "Innocent. He was a
true hippie he never got
jaded."
As they are presented, by
Yoko Ono Lennon and Legacy
Productions, the drawings sus-
tain the legend of Lennon and
Ono's love. Many of the draw-
ings were done for her and/or
their son and they portray them
in tender moments.
Some of the images are erot-
ic, including some from the
"Bag One" set that- was a wed-
ding present from Lennon to
Ono. Scotland Yard closed down
the first exhibition in 1970 of
the erotica.


Others
were lyri-
cal and the
ones for
dao son Sean
were story-
.d book life
notes.
The
sales pitch-
.es were
direct but
restrained;
Judi Bradford the Lennon
lyrics not
overly Muzaked and the entry
fee was a mere $2 (suggested
donation) that benefited AIDS
Help.
The collectible memorabilia
were limited edition serigraphs.
and lithographs at prices ranging
from $200 to $25,000.
The memories were free and
free-flowing as viewers told sto-
ries of 30 years ago. Asked his
take on it, one 20-something
there with his mother, noted
"I'm the only person here
under 50."
For more, see Page 15.

South Duval
While I was out and about, I
played the tourist role in the
neighborhood of the Lennon
exhibit.
The marriage of works by
Roberta Marks and Cynthia
Wynn was an inspired match at
Lucky Street Gallery. The
miniature constructions and
massive found-object furniture
of the two monumental women
artists enhanced each other.
Those works move aside
Monday to make room for a
new incarnation of Leo
Gullick's considerable skills
with color. April 11 opens his
digital images of his drawings.

Gallery, a fresh new look for
Key West appears in Regan
Rosburg's mixed media enig-
mas. Misty skyscapes reprise the
feeling of flight we all felt at the
award-winning 2001 film
"Winged Migration."
The natural image overlays in
stain-like colors create a sort of
orchid delirium. Unfortunately,
the show is over Sunday.
Words in art fascinate some
of us and Charest-Weinberg
gallery is all about words -
names, actually in art.
Scott Covert has a way with
hypnotic repetition of celebrity
names not Anna Nicole, but
the stellar generation of
Hemingway, Johnny Cash,
George Burns, Norma
Talmadge.
Covert's subjects are all dead
and the names are gravestone
rubbings converted into graphic
montages in'acrylic paint with
oil pastels, glitter and even
Swarovski crystals.
Frottage is the technical term
for the rubbings and it lifts the
images to a conceptual level,
with ideas of mortality, the min-
gling of dead souls, and of an
artist traveling the world's
cemeteries in search of faded
fame.
This show continues to
April 14.

O'Farrill makes his mark on the Keys


Marathon native
gives big message
about environment
By JESSICA MACHETTA
jmachetta@keynoter.com

Amid a collection of buck-
ets, hoses, brushes and a
ladder, Yoslan O'Farrill
fills a wall with shades of blue,
matching the azure waters that
surround the Keys.
Bright hues of yellow,
orange, red and purple take the
shape of coral reef, sea life and
marine mammals.
Starfish and rays rest below,
at the bottom portion of the
murals, while reef fish playfully
swim about and larger species,
sailfish and whales and such,
dominate the highest portion of
the wall.
O'Farrill's murals he's


slated to do 10 in the Keys -
are imagistic reminders of the
importance of ocean preserva-
tion.
"They find the walls, the
sponsors of the murals," he said,
"and what they want to do is
send a message that says 'save
the reefs.'"
He explained that the owners
of the buildings he's painting
only have to pay for the art sup-
plies and equipment rental if he
needs the help of lifts, ladders
and the like. Whether he's tak-
ing on any more Keys projects
depends on the size of the wall,
which also dictates the cost of
the project.
"Anyone who wants to get in
line," he said, "get a hold of
me." (artofarrill@yahoo.com)
O'Farrill, 23, is a Marathon
High School graduate and com-
pleted his art education at the


Nurseries You Can Trust

Yoslan O'Ferrill (above left) works on a sailfish at a Marathon
home behind the Cracked Conch, having just completed a
huge mural at Boater's World (top and above right). He's
ready to finish more murals in the Keys and throughout the U.S.
to promote environmental preservation.

He lives in Daytona, shows
work at Mickey's Downtown in
Orlando and has painted murals
throughout the U.S. He said
he's been painting since he was
about seven and finished his
first mural at 15.
Having just completed a
mural at Boater's World in
Marathon, he now heads to a
Duval venue in Key West. But
not before creating a one-of-a-
kind sailfish mural for some
friends in Marathon.
John and Terri Foster will
soon have a magnificent wel-
come for whoever happens by
the canal side of their home.
"He's not like anyone else,"
John Foster said. "He's
O'Farrill."
After the artist finishes his
Keyswide project, he said, "I'm
going to Vegas next."

Wheat beers: cream of crop
Wheat beers: cream of crop


Americans still
tinkering with
German concept
Seat beer- sounds
like someone spilled
S Bud on his Wheaties.
Wheat beer became some-
thing of a trend in bars and
restaurants during the mid '90s
when American brew pubs and
microbreweries (mostly in
Portland, Ore.) started producing
the variety as their spring and
summer seasonal special.
Today, wheat beer is a big
seller in major northern markets
(and most prominently in the
Pacific Northwest) but you can
find one or two choices in many
Keys restaurants and bars.
Wheat beer is not a miracle of
microbiology. Simply, a percent-
age the barley malt from which
beer is made is replaced by
wheat malt. The different grain
along with a different yeast used
during fermentation account for
the differences in taste, aroma,
color and body of the wheat
beer.
Unfortunately, Americans
love to experiment so U.S.-made
wheat beers range from light and
creamy (typical of the style) to
tart and bitter. I'd like to say, "try
a wheat beer" but more realisti-
cally I'd have to suggest, "Try a
half dozen wheat beers."
It's worth the effort to find
one you like.
In general, wheat beers are
described as having a lively,
sharp, creamy taste and texture
that goes especially well with
spicy foods.
Traditional German and
Belgian wheat beers contain
about 50 to 60 percent wheat, the
balance being barley. Some
Belgian wheat beers are flavored
with orange peel and coriander
(dried cilantro).
In Bavaria; the wheat beer is
made by using a particular yeast
strain ("Torulaspora delbrueckii"
in case you want to impress the
girls at the tiki bar) that gives
these beers a distinctive flavor
with hints of clove, banana, cit-
rus and smoke.
The most popular (and avail-
able) wheat beer in Keys bars is
hefeweizen (pronounced heffeh-
wizon), literally yeast (hefe)
wheat (wheat).
Hefeweizens are unfiltered,
meaning the yeast is left in the
brew, so these beers are cloudy
or hazy in appearance. You
might come across wheat beers
called hefeweizens that are clear


Bob Serata


(Kristall-
weizen),
dark
(Dunkel-
weizen) or
high alco-
hol content
(Weizen-
starkbier),
but purists
don't con-
sider any of
these true
hefe-
weizens
unless they


are unfiltered.
Highly carbonated and con-
taining at least 50 percent wheat
in the mash, true hefeweizens
have little hop bitterness (hops
are the flavoring agent that gives
beer its bitter, crisp edge) and a
noticeable bready-banana flavor.
The beers have a creamy, mouth-
filling texture that is almost
food-like.
Very good traditional German
hefeweiz6ns are Schneider
Weisse Weizenhell and
Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse.
American hefeweizens tend to
be less spicy and fruity because
most American brewers use a
standard ale yeast for fermenta-
tion (usually Saccharomyces
cerevisiae). The result tends to
be a rich, wheaty, less fruity,
very slightly bitter character. But
that's just a gross generalization
because American wheat beers
are all over the lot in terms of
taste, aroma and body.
Live Oak HefeWeizen, from
Austin, Texas, is closer to the


It's 5 O'clock
Somewhere


Il u -


German style strong aroma of
cloves and citrus, big-bodied,
highly carbonated. Mad King's
Weiss, from Victory Brewing
Company in Downingtown, Pa.,
is a thick, mouth-filling style
that's both spicy and musty (i.e.,
yeasty). Sam Adams Hefeweizen
has the proper cloudy appear-
ance, but lacks the fruity, spicy
overtones of true hefeweizens.
Two wheat beer varieties you
might come across are Belgian
witbieren ("white beer") and
weitzen or weisbier (a.k.a. weise)
from Germany.
The Belgian witbieren have a
whitish color due to yeast that
remains suspended in the liquid.
They offer slight fruitiness -
from the addition of orange peel
and coriander and a distinc-
tive flavor when made with
unmalted, rather than malted
wheat grain.
The German weitzen are like
hefeweizens but often use differ-
ent yeasts during fermentation
and filtering processes.
So, where does that leave us?
Order a wheat beer. Taste a few.
The flavors are full and rich,
without the bitterness of tradi-
tional ales or stouts. The aromas
are spicy and fruity. And the fin-
ish is just right for a warm
evening in the Keys.

Arts council gathers in Marathon


L'Aftitudes Staff


Sunday, Monica Haskell,
executive director of the
Monroe County Council
for the Arts, presided over her
last annual meeting for the
organization.
Haskell is leaving the council
after 10 years of service to pur-
sue other interests, but not
before, she's fond of reminding
her coworkers, she takes some
time off to relax and enjoy life in
the Keys.
The annual meeting was held
at the Marathon Yacht Club and
.recognized the search committee
charged with finding her replace-


ment: Rocky Hubert, Connie
Groth, Nancy Perez-Miller and
chairwoman Shirley Freeman.
Also at the meeting, several
people were recognized were as
being instrumental in securing
Artists in Schools and ArtReach
grants administered by the coun-
cil.
Bounce, Ooo LaLa and
Daniel, members of the Family
Comedy Variety Show, enter-
tained in the courtyard for those
enjoying the sunset and also pro-
viding a fun show with unicy-
cling, juggling, hula hoping and
more.


Also adding a bit of Keys
atmosphere to the event was a
band of merry pirates singing
and dueling, the Bone Island
Buccaneers.
For more on these entertain-
ers, call Bounce and Ooo La La
at 294-6397 or visit www
.bounceandooolala.com,
and the buccaneers at 295-9195.
Haskell took a moment to
recognize supporters of the arts
in the Keys as well as the current
board and other volunteers, but
not before board member David
Cohn interrupted her at the podi-
um to rally the crown in express-
ing thanks to Haskell for her
service.

watercolor and figure drawing.
Showcasing the hard-earned
accomplishments of the students,
it also offers the burgeoning
artists an introduction to the life
cycle of art and how it affects
individuals beyond the classroom.
Steven Parker, art student and
long-time sketch artist, was new
to digital photography when he
began the class this spring.
"Dr. Lynne Bentley-Kemp
[professor of photography] has
helped me gain new perspective
of the physical world and how it
is seen through the eyes of oth-
ers," he said. "[I've learned]
something that can be applied to
all aspects of my life, not just
my art work."
Diva Vogue, a student in


graphic design and digital pho-
tography, says the impact of
studying art goes beyond satisfy-
ing a need to create, comparing
art education to learning to see
again.
"[These] courses have opened
my eyes to a broader spectrum
of life that we normally take for
granted," she said.
Veteran artists participating,
like Margaret Brown, believe in
trying new things to advance
their work.
Brown said she enjoyed "tak-
ing advantage of happy acci-
dents and trying to understand
artistic motivation, inspiration,
and creation" this term, particu-
larly in Bob Hans' welding class,
a departure from her usual study
of drawing.
Student artist Beth
Banachowski-Long already has
advanced degrees, but took an
acrylic painting class for "per-
sonal growth" with professor
Kate Miller.
"I've really liked working
with Kate," she said. "She is
very good at critiquing and mak-
ing valid suggestions... She has
lent me books and clearly takes
an honest interest in helping indi-
viduals develop artistically, both
practically and theoretically."

concert nearing
T he Key West Symphony
Orchestra is giving out
tickets for its free out-
door concerts at Fort Zachary
Taylor in Key West. Concert
goers must have a ticket to
attend; tickets can be picked up
at the symphony office, 1025
White St. in Key West,
between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Monday through Friday.
The concerts are set for
April 10 and 11 at 8:15; gates
open at 7:45 and the parking
charge is $5, which goes to the
Friends of Fort Zachary Taylor.
Golka
Pianist Adam Golka is the
featured soloist during the Key
West Symphony's final per-
formances of its 2006-07 sea-
son.
Golka joins the symphony
performing Sergei
Rachmaninoff's fiery "Piano
Concerto No. 3," beginning at
8 p.m. April 13 and 14 at the
Tennessee Williams Theatre,
5901 College Road on the cam-
pus of Florida Keys
Community College, Key

The symphony consists of
more than 80 classical musi-
cians, brought together in Key
West for three performance
weekends per season under the


leadership of musical director
Maestra Sebrina Maria
Alfonso.
Next weekend's program
also features the "Overture on
Russian Themes" by Nikolai
Rimsky-Korsakov and the
"Symphony No. 2 in D" major
by Jean Sibelius a work
depicting such nationalism and
passion that it could virtually
melt the icy fjords of Sibelius'
Finnish homeland.
Golka, a winner of the pres-
tigious China Shanghai
International Piano
Competition, is a veteran
pianist who has performed with
orchestrass around the globe -
from the Milwaukee Symphony
to the Shanghai Philharmonic.
Experienced as a soloist,
recitalist and chamber musi-
cian, he has given solo per-
formances at such venues as
New York's Merkin Hall and
Nakanoshima Hall in Osaka,
Japan.
The symphony's Friday
evening performance will be
followed by a reception that
gives music lovers a chance to
meet Golka, the musicians and
conductor in the theater's
grand foyer.
In addition to the two
evening concerts, the sympho-
ny will perform for Monroe
County schoolchildren. The
free interactive concerts are
designed to introduce the stu-
dents to orchestral music, com-


posers and instruments.

ing on seating and concert date
and can be purchased online at

Local girl surprises audiences


Di Gennaro takes
singing career
to next level
By DICK CONKLIN
L'Attitudes Contributor


A re you sure she's from
around here?"
SThat remark, typical of
many heard in the audience, was
an expression of surprise that a
performer with so much talent


has until recently been vir-
tually unknown to most Keys
residents.
That's because Vanessa Di
Gennaro, although a graduate of
Marathon High School, has been
busy completing her education,
recording her music, traveling,
and networking with other musi-
cians.
Now she is back in the Keys,
singing Friday and Saturday

Marathon, and on Wednesdays
outdoors at Tranquility Bay
Resort where she entertains the
dinner crowd with her classic
songs.
If you went to last summer's
Fourth of July party on
Sombrero Beach, that was her
singing the national anthem. If
you caught the recent
"Broadway or Bust" musical at
the Sombrero Country Club, she
was the opening act.
And if you attended last
month's XM Satellite Radio
Indy 300 at Homestead-Miami
Speedway, you saw Di Gennaro
out on the track before the race,
facing an ESPN TV crew,
singing the national anthem. For
the first time in the history of the
IndyCar Series, the season
opened with a night race held
under the lights.
"I'm still on a high from that
event," she said. "They treated
me like a princess, introducing
me to the IndyCar drivers and
other guests, and inviting me to
the press conference afterwards.
That was the first time I've sung
in front of 38,000 people! I
couldn't believe it when I got
to 'the Land of the Free' part,
my voice went up a full octave!"
Born in Europe, she attended
the Mozart School in Austria
before moving to the Keys with

her family, and attended local
Keys schools before graduating
with a major in music-from the
University of Miami. She has a
broad range of music to her
credit, having been schooled in
opera, musical theatre, jazz,
rhythm and blues, soul and all
kinds of contemporary music.
"One high school teacher in
particular had a big influence on
me," she recalled. "Carl Lutkens
was my music teacher and the
MHS band leader. He motivated
me to pursue this career."
Her mezzo soprano voice
makes her a perfect match for
songs like Etta James' classic
"At Last," as well as "You Don't
Bring Me Flowers" by Barbra
Streisand, and-other popular
numbers by Nora Jones, Celine
Dion and Bette Midler. When
she sings from musicals like
"Cabaret" and "Cats," she recites

Her first CD, recorded at
Dave Feder's Saltwater Blue

Feder has become a big fan of

"Vanessa is a great person
with a lot of talent," he said. "I

she wants in this biz. What she
does is unique, kinda pop opera
with a sophisticated twist. And
she is always a pleasure to work

Harris featured
at library lecture
The Friends of the Library
lecture series continues Monday
at 6 p.m. with pollster Lou
Harris, who will offer his annual
political forecast.
Lou Harris has been consid-
ered the dean of American poll-
sters for more than half a centu-
ry. His work has influenced elec-
tions, public policy and social
issues and helped shape
America.
When John F. Kennedy ran
for President in 1960, Harris was
called in to do the polling. He
served the same for Lester
Pearson when he ran for Prime
Minister of Canada in 1963. He
helped elect senators, governors,
mayors and numerous public
officials before giving up private
polling. He has served both par-
ties of Congress on a pro bono
basis dealing with public opin-
ion on major legislative issues.
Harris has conducted interna-
tional studies in finance, tech-
nology and telecommunications.
--


His polls have influenced
American life and opinion on
race relations, gun control, edu-
cation, athletics, Social Security
policy, child-care legislation and
the decision to ban atmospheric
nuclear tests.
The series takes place at
Tropic Cinema, 416 Eaton St. in
Key West, and seating is limited.
The lecture is free, but admis-
sion tickets will be given out on
a first-come first-served basis.
Call 292-3595.

Students

speak up


FKCC / From 8

Relationships developed in
the classroqln often lead to the
students' trusting the artistic
process and to trusting oneself,
and Kate Miller agrees that
there's been some "over the top"
innovation in her classes this
year.
"[There have been] some
interesting representative
works... as well as work done
from a mentor in Art History,"
Miller said. "One student used
the work of Yves Klien as her
mentor, painted her nude body
and made large impressions on
un-stretched canvas. She took
the idea further and added color-
ful line with oil stick. Then she
had to work on the challenge of
presentation for the show
[because she doesn't want to
stretch the canvas]."
Students say the creative and
supportive environment of FKCC
is unique among colleges and
was essential to their success.
The Library Gallery is open
Monday through Thursdays
from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.;
Friday from 8:30 to 4 and
Saturday from 9 to 3.

Arts enthusiasts and John L
Lennon fans gather at the
old Duval newsstand this
past weekend to view the
musician's art work and
lyrics, pausing to read the
meaning behind each.
Rudy Siegel, organizer
(right) collects donations
at the door. Siegel said the
Key West showing brought
in more people than any
other Florida venue.

John Lennon art
exhibit donates
to local cause
L'Attitudes Staff

Legacy Fine Art &
Productions and Yoko Ono
showcased the artwork of John
Lennon inside of Key West's
Valladeres and Sons, 1200
Duval, last weekend.
In the spirit of Lennon and
Ono's compassion for humankin,
the exhibition raised money for
AIDS Help, which provides
health care, housing, food, coun-
seling and support services for
HIV-infected residents of
Monroe County.
More than 100 pieces of art
created by Lennon from 1968 to
1980 featured rare works from
the controversial "Bag-One"
suite signed by Lennon in 1970,


serigraphs, lithographs, copper
etchings and aqua tints of
Lennon's drawings, signed by
Yoko Ono, including song lyrics
and the "Real Love" children's
drawings sketched for his son
Sean during the last few years of
his life.
"I think John's art, for the
most part, represents old fashion
family traditions," Ono said. "He
made a lot of social statements,
but there's a lot about the family
in his works."
Hundreds viewed the display
while listening to the soundtrack
of Lennon's life at the show,
many taking the time to read the
story about each piece and some
even getting teary eyed with the
sentimentality of it all.
The exhibition raised nearly
$6,120 for AIDS Help. For more

The energetic performer is
excited about her prospects for
the future, including songwrit-
ing, new recordings, special
events, and she hopes a
Keys concert to help kids.
"One of my goals is to help
put on a concert to benefit the
Florida Keys Children's
Shelter," she said. "Those kids
really need our help."

Buzzz' babes about her new
