It's time to spring into
some of the best fishing of
the year. And we have all
you need. in Fishing the
Florida Keys, coming in
your Keynoter Saturday.




Paper resizes
Today, the Keynoter has a
new size format that is
slightly smaller in height.
This change comes as news-
papers across the country
convert to a new standard
paper size.
Because of this, we've
also reduced our page labels
and banners slightly to leave
more space for articles.
Some editions may have the
new format printed on the
old paper size until all press-
es are changed over.
The conversion should be
complete in the coming
weeks.
As always, the Keynoter
welcomes your feedback.
Please send comments to
Editor Larry Kahn at

MAY / From 1

Cut off funding to two local
non-profits with little or no warn-
ing.
Disrupted operation of an
emergency shelter during a hurri-
cane evacuation by what one wit-
ness said was "constantly yelling
and screaming down the halls
demanding things be done differ-
ently..."
In probably the most scathing
finding, the investigation discov-
ered that May directed staffers to
demand that all patients pay for
services, despite state law that
says the Health Department can-
not deny communicable-disease
services based on patients' inabil-
ity to pay.
If they cannot pay, May wrote
in the directive, "All patients for
[sexually transmitted diseases]
should have a chart made up and
the counseling and referral docu-
mented. In this way, we cannot be
accused of refusing care."
Under May's direction,
$335,000 in funding was cut
from AIDS Help Inc. and another
$72,000 from Womankind.
However, current Womankind
Director Vicki Weeks says that
funding was eventually reinstat-
ed.
According to the report, May
ordered staffers to falsify a
$2,500 expense for an Italian buf-
fet at Hawk's Cay Resort on
Duck Key in 2005. The following
year, another $1,000 for a ban-
quet during a retreat was charged
to the wrong account.
Several months later, May
again attempted to spend $5,000
on food during a two-day staff
seminar. When the state rejected
the purchase, the Area Health
Education Center, which organ-
ized the seminar, was stuck with
the bill.
"We absorbed that into our
program costs," AHEC
Executive Director Michael
Cunningham said. "We submitted
the invoice, but honestly didn't
think the expense would go
through. But we didn't want to
put it under something and hide
it. The last thing we wanted to do
was submit an invoice that wasn't
true and accurate."
May could not be reached for
comment Tuesday afternoon.
According to the report, for-
mer Health Department clerk
Antonia Martinez told investiga-
tors that May intentionally hid


The findings

The Office of the Inspector General for the Florida
Department of Health on Thursday issued a 28-page report find-
ing that former Monroe County Health Department Director
Susana May violated Health Department regulations as well as
state statute.
Inspector Specialist Lori Van Riper and Investigations
Director Charles Page wrote that May:
Violated state statute by refusing treatment for patients with
sexually transmitted diseases on the grounds they were unable to
pay.
Treated staff and "community partners" unprofessionally.
Purchased food and refreshments with state money, against
the rules.
Participated in "conduct unbecoming a state employee" by
using her position to intimidate employees, and firing two
employees for poor performance despite evidence to the contrary.

Recommendations

A damning report issued Thursday by the state Health
Department's Office of the Inspector General acknowledges local
Health Department Director Susana May resigned prior to its
publication. It gives a list of recommendations to rectify problems
that happened under her watch:
Remove a directive issued by May that all clients pay for
services. State law requires health departments to provide servic-
es for sexually transmitted diseases regardless of patients' ability
to pay.
The new administrator should conduct a financial review to
see that all transactions comply with state policy.
Remove the "poor performance" reviews for two employ-
ees the Inspector General's Office said were fired unfairly.
Assure Medicaid revenue employees are properly trained.
Review Medicaid billings to ensure outstanding revenue is
collected.

food costs. Martinez, who says
she had worked for the state for
many years, objected to misrep-
resenting the expenses. Martinez
reported that May threatened to
fire her; Martinez resigned short-
ly after the threat.
After May was hired in 2004,,
her management style began to
rankle staff, the state investiga-
tion disclosed. And investigators
found a huge turnover rate in the
department after May came on
board.
"A complete 100 percent
turnover of employees in the
business office has happened two
times in two year," the report
says, "including four business
administrators and three human
resources technicians under the
current director."
The report also faults May for


granting unauthorized raises of
up to 44 percent for select
employees.
Several witnesses told investi-
gators May constantly interfered
with their ability to do their jobs.
Clayton Lopez, program special-
ist with the county Health
Department, called May a micro-
manager. Steve Mason, the
department's head of nursing,
told investigators May could be
"vindictive and carry anger over
a long period of time," the report
says.
Wendy Riemann, spokes-
woman for the state Department
of Health, says interim Keys
Health Department Director Bob
Eide is "working hard to stabilize
the health department and get it
moving forward."

Slow sales force change in developer's plans

again," but a press release in
March boasted 25 percent of the
151 units were under contract to
be sold.
Jamie Goff, president of
Douglas Elliman Florida, the
sales agency hired to market the
project, ended a phone call from
The Reporter abruptly and did
not return repeated phone calls
and an e-mail seeking comment
when asked to confirm the
change in strategy earlier in the
day.
Ceebraid Signal, based in
West Palm Beach, bought
Holiday Isle last spring for


Holiday Isle
was originally
scheduled
to be
demolished
this month.

$98.25 million. Ocanos' one-bed-
room units, from 1,245 to 1,459
square feet with full and half
bathrooms, were advertised start-
ing at $1.2 million.
Islamorada Village Manager
Gary Word said to move forward
with the hotel renovation,
Ceebraid Signal would likely
have to apply for different per-
mits than those obtained for the
condo-hotel project.
Holiday Isle was originally
scheduled to be demolished this
month, but that was rolled back to
the summer, and then it was


announced that reservations
would be accepted throughout
this year.
Schlesinger said in the release
that weak sales forced him to
switch gears after only two
months, despite a lavish launch
that included glossy full-page
newspaper supplements for the
planned Ocanos resort.
"It is simply a victim of a
skeptical housing market,"
Schlesinger said in the statement.
He added condo-hotel sales could
resume if the real estate picture
improves.
It's not clear whether the set-
back will mean a longer life for
Holiday Isle, home to a famous
tiki bar and many boozy memo-
ries for South Floridians of a cer-
tain age.
Schlesinger said dropping the
condo-hotel plan has caused
some delay, but that he still needs
local approvals before scheduling
a demolition date. He expects
Holiday Isle to close next year at
the earliest and possibly not until
2009.
Still, without the condo-hotel
windfall Schlesinger must upend
his original financial strategy.
Ceebraid-Signa, has already
faced a cash crunch on the proj-
ect, briefly putting an affiliate
into bankruptcy protection when
it couldn't secure enough invest-
ment dollars to close on the sale.
Gregory Rumpel, executive
vice president of the Jones Lang
LaSalle hotel brokerage in Coral
Gables, said it would be difficult
to turn a profit after paying $98
million for Holiday Isle even
Sat five-star rates.
Add in demolition and con-
struction costs, and Rumpel said
Schlesinger will need more than
hotel guests to stay afloat -
including high-end weddings,
slip rentals at the marina and lux-

More GPS units
stolen in Upper Keys
Five more high-end GPS
units have been stolen from a
Key Largo marina, continuing a
months-long trend of such thefts
in the Keys, according to the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
Deputy Becky Herrin said the
general manager of the
Lighthouse Boat Center called
Saturday morning to report a


burglary, and said sometime
between Thursday at midnight
and Saturday at 10 a.m., five
boats were burglarized with five
GPS units stolen from them.
Each GPS was valued at about
$2,500.
Anyone with information
about the thefts can call Crime
Stoppers of the Florida Keys.

sentenced in two to three weeks,
county prosecutor David
Landefeld said. He was originally
charged with aggravated murder,
kidnapping, aggravated robbery
and tampering with evidence.
Witness testimony indicated
Hockman and Kidwell had left
Ohio after the crime and were
staying at a trailer in Key Largo.
On April 5, 2006, Keys and
Ohio officers searched the trailer
at 13 Mockingbird Road and
.found more than $50,000 in cash


and rare coins, antique swords,
jewelry and watches, bloody
clothing and controlled sub-
stances and other drug parapher-
nalia, officials said.
The couple was arrested and
booked at the Stock Island
Detention Center, then transport-
ed to Ohio to be indicted on
charges of receiving stolen prop-
erty.
They were charged in the mur-
ders shortly after that.

Hockman pleads
in exchange for
no death penalty
Associated Press

A married Ohio couple's for-
mer employee, a former Key
Largo resident, pleaded guilty in
their stabbing deaths and could
face life in prison without the
possibility of parole at his sen-
tencing.
Eric Hockman, 27, pleaded to
two counts of aggravated murder
Friday in Fairfield County (Ohio)
Common Pleas Court. In
exchange for Hockman's plea,
prosecutors agreed not to seek the
death penalty.
The bodies of James
Divelbliss, 71, and Karen
Divelbliss, 50, were found in
their ransacked home in March
2006. Items from the Divelbliss
house in Fairfield County were
found in a home that Hockman
shared with his girlfriend, Heidi
Kidwell, in Key Largo, authori-
ties have said.
Hockman once worked for the
Divelblisses at their home and
business.
Kidwell, 30, pleaded guilty
last year to complicity to commit
murder and was sentenced to 15
years to life in prison.
Hockman is expected to be

week aboard a home-built raft
during a month-long protest to
raise veteran awareness and
money for a new haven for
homeless veterans and those in
need.
Sampsel said he needs about
$12 million for the facility. So
far, he's put about $1,200 into an
account at Marine Bank and
the lack of donations has him
worried his act may be for noth-
ing.
"I think about it every day.
Really, all the support I'm getting
is from veterans," Sampsel said.
"I don't think that the people
realize these vets aren't getting
any help. I'm trying to open their
eyes."
Commanders at Veterans of
Foreign Wars posts in Key Largo
and Key West said Sampsel is
taking the initiative that others
don't seem to.
"He's going to extreme meas-
ures to attract public attention
about the situation that exists
with homeless veterans, and our
post supports him 100 percent,"
said Gary Johnson, Monroe
County administrator for veteran
affairs but speaking only as head
of Key Largo VFW Post 10211
Sampsel launched the 10-foot-
by-12-foot wooden raft March 30
at the Grassy Key trailer park
Whispering Pines, where he
works as property manager and
has provided housing for several
veterans.
He has since been anchored in
the bay near tie old Quay restau-
rant at mile marker 54, although
he plans to move to the west end
of the Seven Mile Bridge for


more exposure around Monday.
-Most days are filled with fish-
ing, visits from sea life and
boaters, work on a book about his
life and slowly learning the com-
puter, which hosts a webcam cap-
turing every moment of his
water-borne life at www.veteran
onaraft.com. It attracts some
175 visitors a day.
- He eats fish he catches or
"emergency food" cooked on a
gas grill. He bathes with water
heatedby the sun and defecates
in a bucket lined with a bag,
which is hauled off every few
days by his wife.
The exterior of his shanty is
lined with sponsors and the name
of his Web site, www.veteran
haven.com, that explains his
other fundraisers like the Florida
Keys Community Classic fishing
tournament and how people can
donate.
It also describes his two tours
with the U.S. Army as an 18-
year-old in Vietnam, a war
Sampsel said "messed me up big
time."
To make sure the same thing
doesn't happen to vets of the cur-
rent war, which Sampsel said
Americans were "misled into
fighting," he is' actively promot-
ing his stunt.
Besides local media, Sampsel
said he's contacted offices of
nearly every presidential candi-
date just to see if they want to
talk.
"We need to get this out there.
I'll be really disappointed, not for
myself but for the veterans in the
street," Sampsel said. "I think I
might have to stay out for 60
days, but if it doesn't happen in
that time, it's not going to hap-
pen."

Small fire erupts
on the 'Celebration'

Key West police and firefight-
ers responded to the cruise-ship
Celebration Monday morning on
reports of a possible fire aboard
shortly after 9 a.m.
"It turns out there was a very
small fire onboard," Fire
Department Division Chief Mike
Karash said. "Apparently they
were using a cutting torch on a
pipe in the bilge area and when
that torch was put aside, it lit the
paint on the steel pipe on fire
briefly."
The ship's crew put the fire
out without incident.

Upper Keys store
robbed with weapon

A Plantation Key convenience
store was robbed at knifepoint
Saturday night, according to the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
Deputy Becky Herrin said a
clerk at the Marlin Food Store at
mile marker 88 said she was
counting money from the register
prior to putting it in the safe


about 11:30 p.m. when a man
walked in with a knife and
demanded cash.
She reported that after she
gave it to him, he left running
toward the highway. She
described the robber as a dark-
skinned white male about 5 feet,
8 inches tall with a medium


build. A surveillance video
showed he was wearing long
black shorts with a white stripe
on the side, a black T-shirt and a
red baseball cap.
Tipsters to Crime Stoppers are
eligible for a cash reward if their
information leads to an arrest.
The hotline is (800) 346-TIPS.

K s Opinion


Tax relief must include

renters, businesses

It's a guessing game up in Tallahassee as the Legislature pass-
es the midway mark and no one can yet tell what if any tax
reforms will emerge.
House Speaker Marco Rubio is still pushing his plan, which
would force local governments to go on a diet after years of feed-
ing on tax rolls fueled by runway real estate prices.
One version of his plan would roll back property taxes to levels
from 2001-02 and allow local governments to opt for an increase
in state sales taxes to replace some of the money lost in reduced
property tax levies.
On the Senate side, no companion bill has yet emerged and
there are only five weeks left in the regular session.
A House committee last week moved a bill to the floor that
would change the way commercial properties are assessed,
potentially reducing taxes and allowing property owners to pass
on savings to tenants.
Finding ways to provide some tax relief for renters and not just
for homestead property has been high on state Rep. Ron
Saunders' agenda.
But so far, there's no companion bill for that initiative in the
Senate.
This yin and yang from two separate legislative bodies takes
place every year, of course. And some years headstrong leaders
of the two bodies can't find a middle ground and initiatives die on
the vine.
This year, however, Gov. Charlie Crist is riding a wave of
favorable public support for tax relief and a reputation for build-
ing bridges across partisan divides.
How far that goodwill will extend when push comes to shove
remains to be seen.
But there are sufficient worries about any radical change that
substitutes higher sales taxes to replace reduced property taxes,
especially in an area like the Keys.
This year's Monroe County budget, for example, relies on local
property taxes to fund 23.1 percent of total spending. And that's
down from 25-percent a decade earlier.
The Keys economy is already so dependent on tourist dollars,
it's hard to see shifting even more of the burden for local govern-
ment needs onto that plate. A downturn in tourism could translate
into budget squeezes across the board. And the Keys aren't the
only coastal community facing that same sort of painful analysis.
Increasing homestead exemptions from $25,000 to $50,000
also provides little relief in counties with high property values.
Clearly, there are no easy answers to these tax tradeoffs, which
may explain why the Senate has been so reluctant to reveal the
cards it's holding.
In whatever the Legislature does this year on taxes, let's hope
the fate of commercial property owners and renters doesn't get
squeezed even more.

Bush ahead of the curve on ethanol-


EDITOR:
I'm. writing about.the recent editorial,
"Photo ops aside, U.S. not serious about
ethanol."
While the Keynoter took an opportunity to
bash President Bush, it failed to do its home-
vork on the issue of upcoming ethanol use in
the United States. Instead of commenting that
George Bush is searching for opportunities to
provide America with other types of fuel sup-
plies, the paper took the opportunity to say that
Bush was just on a PR tour when he visited
Brazil.
As stated, Brazil uses ethanol made from
sugar for 90 percent of its fuel needs. The
United States is rich in other commodities like
corn, which is being used for ethanol produc-
tion. A few companies come to my mind that
are in production and building new plants that
will be coming on line in the near future. These
are VeraSun, the Andersons Inc. and Pacific
Ethanol. These are but a few of companies
coming.online, hiring new employees whose
American families will financially benefit.
VeraSun has four facilities and also has a
business agreement with Ford Motor Co. The
Andersons has plants in Ohio, Indiana and
Michigan; and Pacific Ethanol has three plants
in production serving the West Coast with three
new plants under construction in Stockton,
Calif., Imperial Valley, Calif., and Calipartria,
Calif. Bill Gates has invested $85 million in
Pacific Ethanol recently. I wonder why?
The United States government is requiring


all states to use 10 percent ethanol in their
gasolene blends within a year or so. It seems
like George Bush, politics aside, is taking care
of businesses we can continue to drive our
SUVs around Marathon.

Ethanol not an elixir
EDITOR:
Re: Your editorial on ethanol.
It's obvious that big vehicles and triple
250 horsepower outboards on 30-foot-plus
boats are not fuel efficient. However, before
the editor and publisher jump on the ethanol
bandwagon, I would strongly suggest you
read the book "Water Wars" and then con-
sider the amount of water needed to produce
a bushel of corn and then a gallon of
ethanol. It may be that going more to
ethanol will create more problems than it
solves.
On a more local note affecting us in the
Keys, is the result of a gasoline-ethanol
mixture use in boats. Months ago, Yamaha
sent a warning to its dealers about the effect
of ethanol on marine fuel tanks, fuel lines
and fittings.
Wouldn't it be nice if your readers would
come up with solutions instead of problems.

Short-term rentals banned for a reason


EDITOR:
Do I detect a tinge of bias by the letter
writer using the word "got-miners" in his letter
April 7? Does he refer to the people that
through hard work, saving, business savvy or
having lived here a long time are able to afford
a home here?
These residents voted a long time ago to
prevent short-term rentals in their neighbor-
hoods for a very good reason. One example,
there is a house in the area where different peo-
ple show up all the time. Some are quiet, some
party until deep in the night, outside.
True, Key West is changing. Perhaps the

Animals have friends too
EDITOR:
As a 20-year visitor to and member of the
Marathon community, I want to express my
heartfelt support of the Marathon Animal
Shelter; and Linda, Phil and all their staff
for their kindness shown to all animals
cared for at the animal center.
I have observed nothing less than excel-
lent, compassionate care for all God's most
vulnerable creatures. The shelter has a lot of
treasure in its staff at Stand Up For
Animals. Marathon really appreciates it.
Keep up the good work.

business community sees more opportunities in
condo developments and townhouses with

The business community should change with

Cruising boats find Marathon perfect


EDITOR:
On March 2, we arrived in
Marathon along with five other Great
Harbour trawlers and were seeking a
marina or anchorage for just two or
three days. As it turned out, the city's
new mooring balls were available
beginning that day and the City of
Marathon Marina staff were able to
assign each of us a mooring ball.
Now, almost a month later, we are
preparing for our trip north. Before
we leave, we want to express our
appreciation for the many outstanding
services and amenities provided.
First, without fail, the marina staff
has been extremely helpful and cour-
teous beginning with our first tele-
phone call to inquire about availabili-
ty of mooring balls. We also are
delighted to have a convenient
dinghy dock, water supply, laundry
facilities, mail service, trash disposal,
recycling and pump-outs.
While we typically don't look for
organized social events when we r-
cruise, we have been very pleased
with the occasional pot-luck gather-
ings, the annual Original Marathon
Seafood Festival (what a great week-
end event at a great location), sponta-
neous gatherings (e.g., sing-a-longs)
and the Cruisers Net. The Marathon
Cruisers Net has become an impor-
tant part of our day.
Lastly, and far from least, we also


have found the Smorgasboat service
to be an integral part of what makes
Marathon such a boater-friendly stop.
We used it on numerous occasions,
either when weather conditions or the
sheer bulk of what we were hauling
ruled out using our dinghy. Bonuses
of that service have been newspaper
delivery to our boat as well as trans-
portation to the many great restau-
rants in the area. We have been
delighted with the can-do attitude and
quality service provided by
Smorgasboat.
There is only one improvement
that we can think of that would help
all boaters: a Smorgasboat stop near
Publix. ThAt would help make it
much easier to transport groceries,
including frozen items, to the boat.
Finally, the welcome packet, deliv-
ered by Smorgasboat, is a very nice
touch and quickly got us connected to
all the services, restaurants and other
activities at Marathon.
We are sad to leave Marathon.
However, we (along with our fellow
Great Harbour friends) are already
planning our return trip next year and
thinking about staying for several
months. We thank everyone and the
local businesses for the wonderful
hospitality and for creating the per-
fect environment for cruisers.

EDITOR:
I am in fifth grade at Northeast
Elementary in Kearney, Neb. I have
adopted your state as a class project
to research. I will be doing a report

other information or materials I
receive about your state. I am hoping
that some of your readers will be
able to help me with my project. I
was able to research your city and
newspaper.
I would really appreciate it if
some of your readers could drop me
a postcard from your state. I would
like to get many different postcards


to display during our state fair. I
could also use maps, brochures, sou-
venirs or any other information or
things that would be useful about
your wonderful state. This is a big
project, and I hope your readers can
help.
I hope your readers can help me

Rules, arguing hold back affordable housing


EDITOR:
I am disgusted at the current
direction of Marathon. So far it is all
talk about what the city and/or coun-
ty is going to do about the affordable
housing situation. Or how many trail-
er parks are going to be taken away
and how many condos are going to
be built. Or how many height restric-
tions or land permits are allowed.
Too many policies, regulations,
arguing and bickering get nothing


done.
Affordable housing needs to start
being built now. We as a community
are already busing in people to work
at local stores. If you can't see that
as a problem already, you need to
readjust your glasses and/or your val-
ues.
Let's not try to fix a problem
before it's too late.

How prepared are you

when the big one hits?


It's about this time every year the
words "hurricane season" spring from
these pages.
I hate writing them and you probably
hate reading them. But this year, most
emergency management officials agree
that paying attention to the storm threat
for 2007 is essential because after the
hurricarie-addled years of 2004 and
2005, many have grown complacent
since we got nary a blow in 2006.
Experts expected last year to be nearly
as busy as the previous two, when the
names Dennis, Katrina, Rita and Wilma
(2005), and Charley, Frances, Ivan and
Jeanne (2004) dominated our discourse.
Luckily, it wasn't. Let's hope
this year's six-month season,
June 1 to Nov. 30, is as kind to
us.
The state's mantra when it
comes to hurricane season is
"get a plan." It's almost as if
Craig Fugate, director of
Florida's Division of
Emergency Management, has
it tattooed to the inside of his
eyeballs.
He also preaches evacua-
tion, and minced no words
when he came to the Keys last Larry
year for a hurricane aware- Keynot
ness program sponsored by
the Keynoter and National
Weather Service-Key West, and broad-
cast Keyswide on Comcast Cable
Channel 76.
To sum up his words,-which he repeat-
ed over and over to the in-room and TV-
watching audience: If you don't evacu-
ate, you will die. He repeated it so much,
I came away from the informational ses-
sion thinking that if I don't evacuate
when a strong hurricane approaches,
Fugate himself would knock on my door
at home and pummel me until my heart
stops beating.
But hurricanes are no laughing matter,
and he and others know what happens
when a Charley hits Florida's West Coast
or an Andrew hits Miami-Dade. That's
why they pound home "get a plan" and
"evacuate."
To be honest, most. folks down here
don't know what a "real" hurricane is.
Bad as they were, Wilma in 2005 and
Georges in 1998 were relatively minor
storms.
Hurricanes Donna in 1960 and Betsy in
1965 were the last two major hurricanes
to strike the Keys. In Betsy, 76 people
died in Florida and Louisiana.
And according to the South Florida


Sun-Sentinel, during Donna, "Residents
in the Florida Keys ... [had] to endure 13-
foot storm surges and 150 mile-per-hour
winds. Bridges were washed away and
homes resembled splintered matchsticks
for miles."
Most who are here today have never
felt such fury from Mother Nature. But it
shows how unpredictable she can be.
Need another example? When Rita
threatened in 2005, she passed beyond
the Tortugas as a Category 5. Ultimately,
she brushed the Keys as a Category 2 just
south of Key West.
So "get a plan" ard "evacuate" make
sense when the very real possibility of
mass damage and death is
blowing just off our shores.
And that's why the
Keynoter and the Weather
Service are again hosting a
hurricane awareness program
as a public service to Keys
residents, visitors and poten-
tial visitors. This is our third
year partnering on this.
This year, the session is
6:30 to 8:30 p.m. May 30 at
the Marathon Government
Center. It follows an aware-
Kahn ness program 1 to 5 p.m. the
er Editor same day, at the same loca-
tion, sponsored by the
Lodging Association of the
Florida Keys and Key West. That pro-
gram is geared toward business.
Both will have as keynoter speaker the
National Hurricane Center's hew direc-
tor, Bill Proenza, who replaced Max
Mayfield when Mayfield retired in
January.
For the Keynoter-Weather Service pro-
gram, Key West Meteorologist in Charge
Matt Strahan and I are focusing on hurri-
cane history you'll learn- a lot more
details about those earlier hurricanes -
and evacuation, and being prepared to be
alone without help for a long time after a
powerful hurricane passes.
Among the speakers on our moderated
panels will 6e author Matt Lawrence,
who wrote "What to do 'Til the Cavalry
Comes: A Family Guide to Preparedness
in 21st Century America," and numerous
experts on utilities, hospitals and the real
evacuation numbers and timetables, not
those you hear just tossed about like so
much bureaucratese at government meet-
ings.
You might think you're prepared to go
it alone after a hurricane. But after our
May 30 educational session, you might
think again.

Some cool to tax plan


McPherson wants
hike to help
housing costs
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Tourism-industry players are
reacting strongly to Key West
Mayor Morgan McPherson's pro-
posal to add a penny per dollar on
Key West tourists' hotel bills to
help fund affordable housing.
And their reactions are less
than supportive.
Matthew Babich, general
manager of the Southernmost
Hotels and vice chairman of the
Monroe County Tourist Develop-
ment Council, said possible legis-
lation should explore other means
of obtaining the funding rather
than singling out one already
highly taxed industry.
"We're the most-taxed indus-
try in the state," Babich said.
"This is a community problem....
The cost of solving this problem
should be shared within the com-
munity."
Under McPherson's proposal,

the extra penny would increase
the city's hotel tax on lodging
from its current 4 cents on every
dollar to 5 cents. The additional
revenue would go toward con-
structing affordable housing, an
issue city and county officials
have labeled as a desperate need.
Babich cited New York City's
difficulty in attracting tourists
after that city raised its sales tax a
few years back. He predicted the
same effect in Key West if the
mayor's proposal to raise bed
taxes comes to fruition.
Some city officials disagree.
"Tourists aren't going to look
at that one cent and say, 'I'm not
going there,'" Commissioner
Harry Bethel said.
The city currently charges
tourists 3 percent in taxes for pro-'
motional use and 1 percent for
tourist impact fees. One half of
the impact fee goes to the county
Land Authority, which tackles
affordable housing programs.
The other half-cent goes into the
city's general fund budget.
Monroe County is similar to
Santa Rosa County in northwest
Florida in that they are both the
only counties in Florida able to
implement the impact tax
because both are designated an
Area of Critical State Concern,
according to Harold Wheeler,
marketing director of the Monroe
County TDC.
For this reason, Wheeler said
if city officials consider raising
Key West's bed tax to help
affordable housing, a wiser alter-
native could be adding a second
percent to the impact fee and
exploring options with the TDC,
as well as with the Lodging
Association of the Florida Keys
and Key West.


McPherson's plan would add
a penny to the promotional tax.
He would have to push legisla-
tion because under state statute,
that last penny can only go
toward efforts behind promoting
the Florida Keys not afford-
able housing.
If the industry decided it
wants to use that last penny for
promotional use in the -future,
McPherson's idea would elimi-
nate that possibility.
"It's a tax placed on their busi-
ness and no other business, so
they need to have input,"
Wheeler said.
McPherson did not return
repeated phone calls by press
time, but in a radio interview
Tuesday morning on US1 Radio,
he said that "if we don't have
anybody down here to serve our
tourists, we can advertise and
market to the best of our ability
but when people come down
here, they'll be dissatisfied with
service."
"We, as a hotel, bought afford-
able housing for our employees,"
Babich said. "We're trying to
solve our problem as an individ-
ual business."
During the radio interview,
host Bill Becker asked
McPherson if he spoke with
county Mayor Mario Di Gennaro
outside of the Sunshine Law -
which forbids a legislative body
to discuss issues that could be up
for a vote in the future. The TDC
is covered by the Sunshine Law.
Both McPherson and Di Gennaro
are members of the TDC board.
McPherson said he did speak
to Di Gennaro, but that the issue
wouldn't be voted on at the time,
but would come up in a discus-
sion format with plenty of public
input.

Man dies in fire
at Ramrod auto shop

A 21-year-old Ramrod Key
man died Sunday morning,
apparently the victim of a car
fire, according to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies were dispatched at 7
a.m. to reports of a car fire atA-1
Auto Clinic on Ramrod Key. The
burning car was inside a fence at
the business. Firefighters and


paramedics also responded.
Deputy Becky Herrin said that
when the fire was extinguished,
the body of Scott Kavanaugh was
found in the driver's seat of a
1992 Buick Roadmaster. The
ignition was on, so it appears the
car was running prior to catching
fire.
According to Detective Manny
Cuervo, there was no sign of foul
play found at the scene and the
death appears to be accidental,
possibly due to smoke inhalation.

Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Staff at Monroe County
Emergency Management took
notice when Dr. William Gray's
team issued a forecast for "a very
active" 2007 hurricane, season.
However, the report last week
- forecasting nine hurricanes
and five major hurricanes will
not affect local planning for the
summer storm season, depart-
ment Director Irene Toner said.
"It doesn't really matter if
[Gray] predicts one hurricane or
18," Toner said. "We have to be
ready fpr the first one that comes
this way."
On April 3, Gray's noted
Colorado State University hurri-
cane forecasting team upgraded
its prediction for the severity of
the six-month season that begins
June 1.
An El Nino system that helped
make 2006 an unexpectedly calm
season has broken apart, the

Darrell Gwynn, a noted drag-
race driver paralyzed in a 1990
crash, wants to enjoy the rooftop
sundeck of his new Lower
Matecumbe Key home.
However, that requires a
waiver of Islamorada's height
limit of 35 feet on buildings.
Islamorada Planning staff will
recommend to the Islamorada
Village Council that the waiver
for an additional 9 feet, 6 inches
to allow an elevator .shaft be
denied.
The issue goes to the
Islamorada Village Council at its
5:30 p.m. Thursday meeting at
the Islamorada Fire Station on
Upper Matecumbe Key.
Local activists have spoken
out against other height-waiver
requests, and are attempting to
place the 35-foot building limit in
the Islamorada charter.
Gwynn, a Broward County
native who still lives there, had a
meteoric five-year rise in
National Hot Rod Association
drag competition, challenging.


Colorado State team notes in its
24th year of predicting hurricane
seasons.
"We've seen El Nino condi-
tions dissipate quite rapidly late
this winter, so we do not think
that's going to be an inhibiting
factor this year," said Phillip
Klotzbach, who has taken the
lead forecaster spot.
Reasons for the expected sea-
son include high sea-surface tem-
peratures in the South Atlantic,
higher sea-level pressure and
weaker trade winds.
The average storm season has
six hurricanes and 2.3 major hur-
ricanes.
While the Gray team expects
more than that this year, indica-
tions are that it will not be as
severe as 2005, when Hurricane
Wilma flooded the Florida Keys
and Hurricane Katrina devastated
New Orleans and the Mississippi
coast.
The 2007 predictions are a


sport legend Don Garlits for sea-
son titles.
But in 1990, at age 28, Gwynn
was nearly killed in a run at an
English track. He survived but
remains paralyzed. He has stayed
active in. the sport as a team
owner.
The elevator would permit
access to the sun deck "for health
reasons," Gwynn wrote in his
waiver application.
'Planning staff said the appli-
cation does not meet any of the
six criteria to approve a waiver.
The 4,490-square-foot home is
under construction, and could be
modified for alternative outdoor
access, according to their sum-
mary. No other building in the
bayside Port Antigua neighbor-
hood exceeds to height limit.
The council also will review a
proposal to transfer four develop-
ment units for an affordable-
housing project, and consider a
design and construction agree-
ment with Biltmore Construction
Co. for the new municipal center
and fire station at Founders Park.


near match for the predictions
issued in April 2006, which also
warned of an active season.
But last year an El Nino sys-
tem with winds that inhibit the
formation of hurricanes devel-
oped.
That apparently caused the
2006 season of nine storms, five
hurricanes and two major hurri-
canes to be well below the CSU
forecast.
History suggests it is "quite
unlikely" for a new El Nino to
form within a year of one break-
ing apart, the CSU report says.
No hurricanes made U.S.
landfall in 2006, only the 12th
time since 1945 that has
occurred. Tropical Storm Ernesto
was predicted to strengthen into a
hurricane but did not fortu-
nately, since Emesto made land-
fall on Plantation Key.
Rather than storm-season
forecasts, Emergency Manage-
ment staff spends more time
working on Keys population and
tourism predictions, and looking
at construction projects which
could slow evacuation.
Contractors at the 18-Mile
Stretch widening project on U.S.
1 north of Key Largo "have been
very responsible" about, storm
preparation, Toner said.
That includes surveying local
shelters to efisure they remain
adequate, updating emergency
contacts and paying "particular
attention to those with special
needs," Toner said.
Hurricane shelters typically do
not allow pets.
"We're working very hard on
the pet issue," Toner said. "We
need to provide some type of
answer."

Rubio pushes property tax overhaul


Speaker says
sales tax is
only fair way
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

As the Florida Senate readies
to roll out its own proposal for
property tax reform, House
Speaker Marco Rubio is pushing
hard for the House version that
could eventually replace property
taxes with sales tax.


"Sales tax is more fair than
property tax," Rubio said during
a telephone conference Monday.
"The value of your property has
nothing to do with your ability to
pay those taxes."
Rubio said two bills under
consideration in the House are
aimed at easing the tax hit that
property owners have experi-
enced since property values in the
state hit the stratosphere. The
Republican representative says
sales tax is the fairest way to col-


lect taxes.
"We have a tax on the
American dream in Florida," he
said. "As long as you pay proper-
ty taxes, you will never, ever own
your home."
The bills proposed by the
House attack the problem in two
ways, first by rolling back prop-
erty tax on homesteaded proper-
ties to the 2001 rate and capping
increases on non-homesteaded
properties.
The second part of the reform
would require buy-in by voters, a
referendum- that would allow
local government to swap out
property tax for up to 1.5 percent
sales tax.
In addition, the bills would
require that all local government
and school districts replace ad


valorem taxes on homesteaded
properties with sales taxes by
2010.
Though some say sales taxes
are regressive, -hitting lower-
*income families the hardest,
Rubio argues the current system
of taxing the high market values
of property is worse.
"You control what you spend
because you control what you
buy," he said of sales tax, adding
that medicine and food are
exempted. "Sales tax is truly
based on people's ability to pay."
Rubio says renters are being
hit hard by the current tax system.
"I think the current system
hurts renters more than anyone,"
he said. "And Realtors tell us that
the main factor in not qualifying
[to buy new homes] is taxes. We


know there are thousands of
renters that could be buying if not
for property taxes."
The impact of his proposals
would vary with the state of a
county's economy, he said, not-
ing that in Miami-Dade, even a
1.5 percent sales tax would not
replace the tax money lost from
doing away with property taxes.
Rubio says he believes a high-
er sales tax would not adversely
affect tourism, the driving eco-
nomic engine in the Keys.
"Even if they passed the
[highest sales tax], they would be
below their competitors," he said,
pointing out that sales tax in New
York and Los Angeles have not
slowed the flow of tourists.
The Senate's proposal is
expected to be released Thursday.

Key West residents are getting
their first glimpse of detailed
plans and artist renditions of a
proposed $50 million senior-liv-
ing facility the Florida. Keys
Assisted Care Coalition wants to
build in Truman Annex in Key
West.
More than 60 residents the
majority of whom would most
likely require an assisted-living
facility in coming years -
attended the unveiling of the
coalition's plan Monday night.
"As a community, we are fail-
ing to meet the needs of our eld-
ers," said Joan Higgs, co-chair-
woman of the coalition. "They
shouldn't have to leave the com-.
munity they helped build all their
lives if they need supportive
care."
The proposed facility for resi-
dents living from Marathon
through Key West would include
as many as 140 units some of
which would be rented at market
values while others would be
subsidized for low-income resi-
dents. The facility would operate
not for profit through the coali-
tion.
Unit sizes would vary from


400-square-foot studio apart-
ments to two-bed, two-bath
apartments measuring 1,200
square feet. Monthly rents on
unsubsidized units would range
from $2,300 to $4,900. Residents
in subsidized units would pay
anywhere from $1,000 to $1,700
per month.
A life-lease option would also
be available. It would not entitle
the resident to ownership of the
apartment but allow him or her to
pay a flat fee to live in the com-
plex as long as they wish.
Life-lease prices would range
from just under $200,000 to $1.5
million. Residents or their estates
would be refunded a percentage
- up to as much as 80 percent of
the life-lease apartment cost if
they decide to move, or if they
die while living at the facility. -
Board member John Dolan-
Heitlinger made clear the vision
of the coalition is not to create a
convalescence center or nursing
home.
"This is an independent living
and assisted-care facility," he
said. "These are really just apart-
ments for both elderly people
who can live independently, and
those who need some assistance
with their day to day activities."
The coalition proposes the
facility be built on 5.3 acres of
land in Truman Annex between
Southard and Angela streets. The
majority of the land is to be
donated by the city, while 1.6


acres is to be donated by Keys
Energy Services.
The project has many finan-
cial and political hurdles to cross
before it is seen through to
fruition. The $50 million in con-
struction costs must be raised,
which coalition members said
they plan to do through conven-
tional lending institutions.
Key West residents will have
to approve the land transfer from
the city to the coalition through a
referendum, which the coalition
hopes to have on the ballot this
fall. Additionally, the Utility
Board of Key West, which over-
sees Keys Energy, will also have
to approve the land transfer for its
section of the proposed site.
The Key West City
Commission, the city Planning
Department and the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs will all need to approve
the project.
If all obstacles are overcome,
Dolan-Heitlinger said residents
could be moving into the facility
as early as late 2009.
Those attending Monday's
presentation voiced more support
for the project than criticism.
However, Bahama Village
Consortium co-Chairman Robert
Kelly said the neighborhood
preservation group has concerns
about the land proposed to be
built on, what purpose it should
serve and the impact such a facil-
ity would have on Bahama
Village.

Pioneer Cavanah dies at age 84


By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

Longtime Marathon resident
Margaret "Peggy" Cavanah died
at her home April 4 after a 10-
year battle with ovarian cancer.
She was 84.
Mrs. Cavanah was born in
Chicago, Ill., on Nov. 3, 1922,
and came to Marathon in 1950
with her husband, Henry "Pete"
Cavanah, now 85.
They owned a trailer park
until 1962, operated Marathon
Radio Service, which became
Cavanah TV, and were very
active in local churches.
It was this involvement with
churches and community groups,
particularly with Marathon youth,
that friends and family said they
will remember as Mrs. Cavanah's
lasting legacy.

While scientists have identi-
fied a strain of botulism hitting
brown pelicans in the Keys, sev-
eral great white herons are show-
ing up in bird rescue facilities
with similar symptoms.
Since November, Exotic and
Wild Bird Rescue on Big Pine
Key has seen 25 paralyzed peli-
cans and four great white herons.
Maya Totman, who runs the
facility, says three of those peli-
cans and one heron have died.
She says fast action is vital to
save the birds, and recommends
anyone seeing a bird that seems
unable to lift its head, blink its
eyes or move to immediately
report it or take it to the nearest
rescue center.
"The anti-toxin works mira-
cles," she said.
Kelly Grinter, who heads both
Wildlife Rescue in Key West and
the Marathon Bird Center, says
the strain of botulism identified
in the birds is unusual. Stranger
still, she says, is the fact that the
outbreak seems so small.
"The biggest mystery is how it
happens," Grinter said.
"Botulism is a spore that is pres-
ent in the environment all the
time. It starts low in the food
chain and if there's an outbreak,


"The Cavanahs were like spir-
itual parents, guides and coun-
selors not only for me, but for a
host of people in Marathon," said
54-year-old Roy Lowe, who grew
up in Marathon and is now a
Methodist pastor in. Bartow, just
south of Winter Haven.
"She was always smiling,
always loving, always welcom-
ing and supportive," Lowe con-
tinued. "She just' had arms wide
open and embraced several gen-
erations of kids."
Cavanah was active in the
United Methodist Community
Church for 42 years and then with
Island Community Church for the
past several years. She served for
24 years as a Girl Scout and Boy
Scout leader and volunteered as a
tutor at what was then the Sue M.


you usually see thousands of
birds die in one area before it
plays itself out."
Though Totman suspects a
recent red tide for the spread of
the sickness, Grinter says it's not.
"Red-tide symptoms are dif-
ferent," Grinter said. "Those
birds have seizures. This is clas-
sic botulism symptoms: step-by-
step paralysis."
On Tuesday, the Florida Fish
and Wildlife- Conservation
Commission identified botulism
in three brown pelicans from
Pinellas County.
"White pelicans from a Polk
County mortality event in
January were also previously
found to be positive for Type C
botulism," FWC veterinarian
Danielle Stanek wrote in an e-
mail to Totman.
"The reason we've had such a
hard time getting a positive ID on
it is that the botulism spores leave
the bloodstream quickly, "
Grinter told the Keynoter.
Totman encourages boaters
that find birds that appear para-
lyzed to call a local bird rescue
facility or bring them in.
"But they must keep their eyes
away from the beaks," she
warned. "Even if you think the
bird is down, please be careful."


Moore School and Stanley
Switlik Elementary School.
She was a founding member
of the Fishermen's Hospital
Auxiliary and a member of
Gideons International Auxiliary.
Friends said she and her hus-
band kept active in the communi-
ty, especially with school pro-
grams, even if her grandsons,
David and Steven Cavanah,
weren't involved.
"Any function we ever had,
the Cavanahs were always there
supporting the kids," said Jackie
Eigner, a 20-year resident and
parent active in the schools.
"Any baseball game, any
awards assembly, field trips -
they were there," Eigner added.
"They just didn't support their
grandchildren, they supported
everybody's children."
Local accountant Dennis
Bishop remembered Mrs.
Cavanah, as did many, as a "love-
ly, lovely lady" who would go out
of her way to make simple ges-
tures of generosity.
"Every year I'd do her taxes,
and she'd bring in a big old fresh
plate of homemade cookies,"
Bishop said. "I always looked


forward to seeing her. We miss
her coming in here."
After retirement, Mrs.
Cavanah enjoyed traveling by
motor home and simply being a
grandmother. She found time to
knit and crochet Afghans and
sweaters and sent 82 of them to
guideposts to distribute where
needed.
Most of her best deeds were
done behind the scenes, many
said, where she was also being a
proud Scot.
"If you went into the house,


she was always drying off paper
towels," son Scott said. "Scottish
people are tight with their money.
You don't see a whole lot of that
down here -I we don't know
who we are anymore."
A celebration of life will be
held at 2 p.m. April 21 at Island
Community Church, 125th Street
in Marathon.
Memorial donations can be
made to Visiting Nurse Associa-
tion/Hospice of the Florida Keys
at 92001 Overseas Highway,
Tavemier, FL 33070.

Marston's now
the lead man
for emergencies
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Key West Fire Marshal Craig
Marston has been named the
city's new division chief of
emergency management and
training, in charge of preparing
the city for any emergencies,
well as training aspiring fire-
fighters, a job in which he
already has experience.
"It's in the works," Marston
said. "I don't know if it's official
yet."
It was as of last. Monday,
according to a memo written by
Assistant City Manager John
Jones.
City Manager Juilio Avael has
acted as the Emergency
Operations Center director and
dealt with issues regarding the
National Incident Management
System, a nationwide program
mandated through the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency. Now, according to city
officials, those responsibilities
are Marston's.
Marston said his new job
requires him to make sure the
city's emergency management
plan is up to date and acceptable
by the state. This includes ensur-
ing everyone within the city is
properly trained and informed of
any potentially dangerous


weather.
The decision to hire Marston
came after the City Commission
tabled a resolution at its April 3
meeting that would've approved
a contract to hire Early Alert Inc.
for emergency management
support services.
"When the City Commission
tabled it, that put is in a bind,"
Jones said. "We had to do this
immediately and Craig definite-
ly was the right move to make."
Retired Key West Fire Cltef
Billy Wardlow was expected to
take the position but declined.
Officials are just as pleased to
have Marston step in.
"They couldn't pick a better
person," said City
Commissioner Harry Bethel,
who voiced concern at last
week's City Commission meet-
ing over tabling the resolution
that would have hired Early
Alert for the job.
"We had no intention of hir-
ing a company," Commissioner
Dan Kolhage said in an inter-
view.
Bethel was concerned with
the upcoming hurricane season,
beginning June 1.
"The fact is, we're about
seven weeks away from hurri-
cane season," Bethel said.
Jones said Early Alert will
still be used on an as-needed
basis,
"We'll need some help get-
ting all of the plans in line,"
Jones said.

Guy Harvey grill to open

Luxury liners getting bigger


Massive ship
being built
in Finland
Associated Press


Royal Caribbean Cruises
said it ordered a second
220,000-gross ton ship at the
cost of about $1.4 billion,
which would give the company
the world's two largest cruise
ships by 2010.


The ship, part of the Royal
Caribbean International brand's
Project Genesis, will hold 5,400
passengers, the Miami-based
company said. The ship will be
built at Aker Yards in Finland
and will become the 24th vessel
in the Royal Caribbean
International fleet when deliv-
ered by the projected date of
August 2010.
Royal Caribbean announced
last year it was building its first


~LI u s .--_-~


Project Genesis ship, with
delivery projected in fall 2009.
That ship will become the.
largest in the world when com-
pleted bigger than Royal
Caribbean's 160,000-gross ton
Freedom class vessels, the
Freedom of the Seas, Liberty of
the Seas and Independence of
the Seas.
A gross ton is a standard
measurement of carrying capac-
ity that is equivalent to about
100 cubic feet.
The Freedom of the Seas


already is sailing a Caribbean
itinerary. The Liberty of the
Seas is set for delivery in May,
while the Independence of the
Seas is set for delivery in May
2008.
The cruise industry has 34
ships on .order for delivery by
the end of 2011, adding more
than 80,000 berths at the cost of
more than $15 billion.
Key West is a port of call for
many of Royal Caribbean's
cruise liners, which dock at
Mallory Square.

Guy Harvey's Island Grill
will house two bars, one of
which will be built from the stem
of a boat and accented with spe-
cialty tiles to make it appear as if
it's canvassing over Caribbean
waters.
Inside the gallery and retail
shop next to the restaurant, all
things Guy Harvey will be avail-
able for purchase, including orig-
inal artwork, prints, clothing,
coffee mugs and books.
Harvey plans to expand his
restaurant and retail franchise to
many other American cities in
the coming years, said
McFarland, but Key West was at
the top of the artist's list of places
to initially expand into.
"Key West is an ideal market
for us because most everybody
there knows and loves Guy
Harvey," McFarland said. "They
want to meet and spend time
with him, and they'll be able to."
Harvey makes regular appear-
ances at both his existing busi-
nesses, and McFarland estimated
he will be in Key West at least
once every couple months once
the restaurant opens.
Renovations are under way at
511 Greene St., the former loca-
tion of Big Daddy Conch's,
where Guy Harvey's Island Grill
is expected to open June 1.
"It's really the perfect loca-
tion," McFarland said. "Greene

Filing deadline extended


The IRS also
warns of scams
with e-mails
Taxpayers across the nation
have until April 17 not April
15 to file their 2006 returns
and pay any taxes due, the
Internal Revenue Service says.
Taxpayers have extra time
to file and pay because April
15 falls on a Sunday in 2007,
and the following day, April
16, is Emancipation Day, a
legal holiday in the District of
Columbia.
As the deadline looms, the
IRS is alerting taxpayers about
Internet scams in which fraud-
ulent e-mails are sent that
appear to be from the IRS.
The e-mails direct the con-
sumer to a Web link that
requests personal and financial
information, such as Social
Security, bank account or cred-
it card number, according to
the IRS. The practice of trick-
ing victims into revealing pri-
vate and financial information
over the Internet is known as
"phishing" for information.
The IRS does not send out


unsolicited e-mails or ask for
detailed personal and financial
information, the press release
stated. Also, the IRS never asks
people for the personal identi-
fication numbers, passwords or
similar secret access informa-
tion for their credit card, bank
or other financial accounts,
according to the press release.
The information gleaned by
the scammers is used to steal
people's identities and then
their financial assets, the IRS
said. In general, these scam-
mers use someone's personal
data to steal his or her financial
accounts, run up charges on the
victim's existing credit cards,
apply for new loans, credit
cards, services or benefits in
the victim's name, and even
file fraudulent tax returns to
obtain refunds rightfully
belonging to the victim,
according to the IRS release.
The IRS established an e-
mail address where people can
send e-mails they think are
fraudulent using the IRS name,
logo or Web site. The IRS has
received more than 17,700 e-
mails reporting more than 240


separate phishing incidents. To
date, investigations by the
Treasury inspector general for
tax administration have identi-
fied host sites in at least 27 dif-
ferent countries, including the
United States.
More information can be
found on the Compliance and
Enforcement. page of

Florida to offer job training


Tennessee firm
to offer classes
throughout state
Associated Press

A Tennessee company has
received a $13.25 million con-
tract to operate a new job
skills training and credential-
ing program for Florida, state
education officials said
Friday.
The Ready to Work pro-
gram will give participants a
chance to earn a credential


that shows employers they
have the skills necessary for
various jobs. That includes
jobs in sales, service, manu-
facturing, restaurant and auto-
motive industries.
The Department of
Education awarded the con-
tract to Worldwide Interactive
Network of Kingston, Tenn., a
knowledge management and
training company, to provide
instruction and assessments.
There is no fee for partici-
pants. They first will get an
assessment to determine what


skills they already have for a
particular kind of job. Those
needing additional preparation
would be enrolled in self-
paced training programs.
Three levels of credentials
will be awarded bronze, sil-
ver and gold depending on
how well a participant did on a
series of three tests.
The program is being
offered through public
schools, community colleges,
technical centers, career cen-
ters, vocational rehabilitation
centers, the Department of
Juvenile Justice and regional
education organizations.

History unearthed in Key West


Memorial going
up for slaves
buried in city
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

It's a small patch of white
sandy beach along, the southern
end of Key West.
The backdrop of glittering sea
and the weathered bricks of the
Civil War-era East Martello
Tower give no inkling that a few
feet below the surface, the bodies
of at least nine Africans bear tes-
tament to Key West's fight
against slavery.
All that is changing now,
though, as Monroe County teams
up with archeologists and histori-
ans to create a memorial for the
people who regained their free-
dom during .a brief stay in the
Keys. The project began last
month.
For three months in 1860,
nearly 1,500 Africans were tem-
porarily housed in Key West after
the U.S. Navy captured three
slave ships bound for Cuba.
"Of these people, many were
sick and wakened by the harsh,
crowded shipboard conditions


they had endured during their
voyage from the coast of Western
Africa," archaeologist Corey
Malcolm writes.
Malcolm, who heads the
archaeology department of the
Mel Fisher Maritime Heritage
Society, did the initial survey that
clearly outlined the nine close
graves.
He says that .according to
records, there are a total of 295
people who died within that
three-month period and were
buried in Key West.
The burial ground is one of
many scattered across the island,
according to Malcolm. Many
remains were uncovered when
the fort adjoining Higgs Beach
was built in 1862. StilLmore may
have been unearthed in the 1940s
when Key West water and sewer
lines were installed in the region.
Malcolm and Lawrence
Conyers of the University of
Denver conducted ground-pene-
trating radar sweeps that mapped
the entire area and disclosed the
nine remaining graves. The tests
also showed that no burials had
occurred across the street in the
area that is now a dog park.
Malcolm speculates that ero-

sion, too, may have disturbed a
number of the graves during the
past century, as did construction
of a military railway to service
the two Martello towers.
The radar sweeps were con-
ducted in 2002, but two severe
storm seasons delayed the kickoff
for the memorial until this year,
according to John King, Monroe
County's director of Lower Keys
operations.
S"The Tourist Development
Council appropriated $25,000,"
King said. "The memorial will be
a floating slab so that the remains
are not disturbed."
"This is one of the great heart-
breaking stories in this hemi-
sphere," Malcolm said at the
kickoff ceremony for the memo-
rial. "These people have been
through so much, we should let
them rest in peace."


Among the historic docu-
ments Malcolm pored over is a
1912 description of one of the
burials:
"The first burial was of a child
six weeks old," Jefferson Browne
wrote in a history of Key West,
"whose young mother was in her
teens... Weird chants were sung,
mingled with loud wails of grief
and mournful moans from a hun-
dred throats, until the coffin was
lowered into the grave...."
The survivors who were
nursed back to health in a hospi-
tal built entirely for the rescued
slaves were shipped to the
African nation of Liberia.
"This will become an interna-
tional African heritage site," said
Norma Jean Sawyer-Atanda,
founder of the Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust and one
of Key West's experts on the
city's black heritage.
The monument is planned for
completion in December.

By DICK WAGNER

Sophomore Drew Rivera was
the new kid on the mound
Saturday night for the Key West
High School baseball team, and
the left-hander looked like a sea-
sonetd veteran.
Called up from the JV team,
Rivera helped pitch the Conchs
to a 7-4 victory over Naples
before a smattering of bundled-
up fans at Rex Weech Field.
He struck out eight batters in
5.3 innings in his first varsity
start before giving way to Daniel
Foltz in the sixth.
"He threw all of his pitches
for strikes and I thought his
change-up was outstanding,"
coach Miguel Menendez said.
"He is a guy who could play a
pivotal role as a left-handed spe-
cialist out of the bullpen."
Rivera was given an early
cushion as the Conchs scored
four runs in the first inning,
spraying hits to all fields.
In the first, after Frankie
Ratcliff was hit by a pitch and
Michael Arencibia laid down a
bunt hit, Raiko Alfonso drove in

game.
The Conchs hope they will
have at least one regional playoff
game at home in a couple of
weeks. For that to happen, they
will have to defeat both St.
Brendan and Monsignor Pace in
next week's district tournament.
Coach David Gootee expects
a tough game against Coral
Shores, even though the


Hurricanes are 2-10, including
an early-season 4-2 loss to Key
West, and have a seven-game
losing streak.
"They are real solid," he said.
"I expect a great game."
The Hurricanes' hope of an
upset will ride on the arm of
freshman pitcher Holly Given,
who has been impressive all sea-
son.
Key West is 14-10 after split-
ting four games in last week-
end's tournament at the Osceola


County Sports Complex.
"We played three really good
teams, were 2-2 and should have
been 3-1," Gootee said.
The Conchs defeated
Tallahassee Leon, 14-12, and
Lake Highland, 16-5. They lost
to Tampa Gaither, 9-2, and
Okeechobee, 4-3.
The weekend's most stirring

After 15 years, Islamorada
diving coach Arturo Miranda
holds a ticket to the 2008
Olympics that no one can take
away.
Miranda and 3-meter syn-
chronized diving partner
Alexandre Despatie took sec-


ond place at the 2007 World
Championships, held last
month in Australia.
The silver medal at the
year's biggest event for spring-
board diving includes a guaran-
teed spot in the 2008 Olympic
field. Only the favored Chinese
scored higher.
"It's very exciting," Miranda
said of his chance to compete
next year in China at age 37.
"We have a lot of work to do."
As a solo diver, Miranda
qualified for the 1992 and 2000
Olympics. Both times, politics


kept him off the board.
"All kinds of crazy stuff
happened to him," said
Despatie, at 21 the most cele-
brated diver in Canada.
Miranda earned an Olympics
berth with the 1992 team from
his native Cuba. Since he was
not considered likely to medal,
the cash-strapped Havana gov-
ernment decided it could not
afford to send him to Barcelona.
After moving to Canada,
Miranda qualified to compete
for his new home country in the
2000 Olympics. He traveled to

It's late in the softball season
but not too late for the Coral
Shores Lady Hurricanes.
"We need to do the basics,"
said Paul Grewe, co-coach with
Mike Young. "In our games; we
look like gangbusters for half the
innings. Then in the other half,
we just look like busters."
The Canes head to Key West
High School today, looking to
break a seven-game losing streak
that dates back to March 8.
On Monday, the fast-pitch
Canes lost, 18-8, to a solid
'Colonial Christian (14-4).
At Colonial, the Canes man-
aged just one hit in three score-
less innings. "After that, we had
10 hits and eight runs," Grewe
said. "We play really well in
spurts."
Four errors did not help the
cause, the coach said. A six-run
third inning staked Colonial to a
9-0 lead before the Hurricanes
started hitting the ball.

man outfielder, added to her

Sydney but was blocked from
competition when the Cuban del-
egation protested he did not meet
residency requirements to com-
pete for Canada.
Miranda partnered with
Despatie two years ago to com-
pete in the relatively new sport of
synchronized diving.
Both acknowledge their near-
ly identical physiques adds to the
symmetry as they perform
matching dives.
"It's physically tough to stay
together," Miranda said, "but
there's more to it than that."
"It helps that we're good
friends," Despatie said. "A key to
synchronized is being willing to
sacrifice for the sake of the div-
ing. You have to make adjust-
ments to work together."
Despatie owns an Olympics
silver from the 3-meter board at
the 2004 Athens Olympics. He
was fourth off the platform, an
event in which he also took pate
in the 2000 Olympics.
He is the only diver ever to
win gold at the World
Championships in all three indi-
vidual diving events the 10-
meter platform (2003) and 1-
meter and 3-meter springboard
(both 2005).
"At the Olympics, you have to
be perfect," Despatie said.
"When we performed at the


World Championships, we
weren't perfect. We can do better.
We have to make sure every qual-
ity is just right."
Synchronized diving became
an official Olympic sport in 2004.
The partners occasionally
meet to work out together at
Founders Park in Islamorada,
where Miranda has been spring-
board diving coach since mid
2005.
"The Islamorada Diving Club
has been veiy good to me and


willing to work around the com-
petition schedule," Miranda said.
Despatie looks forward to his
Keys sojourns. "It's really great
for training here," he said. "It's a
nice outside venue, and has a
great view."
He also enjoys meeting
Miranda's students.
"I remember when I was a kid
how much fun it was to be around
divers at a higher level," he said.
"Now I can help them out and
give something back."

Charlie Walker-Yhap drove in
the fourth with a single to center.
Naples came back with a run
in the second, but an RBI double
by Ratcliff in the bottom of the
inning got back the four-run
lead.
The Golden Eagles, a good
hitting team that came into the
game with a 17-2 record, scored
three runs in the third to make it
5-4. Rivera, however, kept his
composure and allowed no fur-
ther scoring.
Ratcliff, who was outstanding
defensively at second base, hit a
two-run double in the sixth for
the Conchs' final runs.

"Frankie Ratcliff is a special
player," Menendez said of the
sophomore. "As good as he has
done this year, I really expected
it."
Foltz, who hadn't pitched
recently, finished the game
strong, getting a save and allevi-
ating concerns about possible
arm trouble.
"He was just going through a
dead-arm phase," Menendez
said. "He was worn out, so we
decided to give him some rest.
We will pitch him in the next two
weeks, but he will be limited so
we can get the best out of him in
the district semifinal against
Belen."
The victory improved Key
West's record to 12-8 and
avenged a 6-2 loss to Naples
Friday night.
The Conchs will play 8 p.m.
games Friday against Coral
Shores and Saturday against
longtime rival Gulliver Prep.
The regular season will con-
clude April 20 and 21 with home
games against Forest Hills.

Marathon's Ross


in rarified company


QB receives
honors from
Touchdown Club
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

Marathon High School foot-
ball player Adam Ross has been
selected as Outstanding Football
Player of the Year for high
schools Class 1A to 3A by the
South Florida Touchdown Club
Foundation.
The club is a Miami-based
group dedicated to the continuing
education of high-school seniors,
particularly student athletes.
Ross, a senior, is one of four
honorees including Outstanding
Professional Player Jason Taylor
from the Miami Dolphins,
Outstanding College Player Chris
Leak from the Florida Gators and
Outstanding High School
Football Player for Class 4A to
6A Doug Wiggins of North
Miami Beach High School.
Dolphins football coach


Lance Martin said Ross received
nominations and votes from
coaches across South Florida.
"This award says a lot, and he
rightfully deserves it," Martin
said. "He was probably the most
coachable quarterback I've
coached, and he listened the most.
It's just the type of kid he is."
This past season, Ross
became the first quarterback
under Martin to pass for more
than 1,000 yards as he helped the
team break a string of school
records including points scored
(29.2 per game), points allowed
(14 per game), yards earned (357
per game) and yards allowed
(167 per game).
Ross, who also doubled as a
defensive back, is looking to play
football at Division 2 and 3 col-
leges in either Massachusetts,
Iowa or Virginia.
Martin said he, other school
officials and Ross and his family
will attend the South Florida
Touchdown Club awards cere-
mony April 19 in Miami.

Conchs tune up for district


Track team

Thursday morning

For the track athletes at Key
West High School, the road
toward state begins at 11 a.m.

Thursday in the District 16-2A
meet at De la Cruz Stadium in
Miami.
Conch coach Dave Perkins
expects his boys and girls team
to finish second behind host
Belen Jesuit and qualify about
25 athletes for the regional meet.
Belen, a perennial track
power, should "as a team win the


state meet," Perkins said.
Key West will be led by sen-
ior Marcus Bolden, who will run
the 200- and 400-meter sprints.
Bolden and eight teammates
competed in last weekend's
Florida Relays at Gainesville,
with Bolden finishing eighth in
the 100-yard dash in a time of
10.89 seconds.
Only two members of the cur-
rent team discus thrower
Caitlin Holubar and pole vaulter
Hali Lombardi reached the
state meet in 2006.
Among the runners to watch
are Keith Durden and Phillip
Neuman, both of whom ran per-
sonal bests in the 110-meter hur-
dles at the Florida Relays. ,
The Conchs expect to do well
in the pole vault with Lombardi
and Jenna Moeller for the girls
and Hunter Potalivo and
Michael Labrada for the boys.
Potalivo set a school record this
season, clearing 14 feet, 8.5
inches.
Belen is coming off a strong
performance at the Florida
Relays. The Wolverines' 4x800
relay team of Daniel Silva,
Robert Aran, Jason Oliver and
Javier Zamparelli broke a school
record with a time of 7:56.9.
Key West's all-time record in
the 4x800 is 8:11.92 set in 2005
by R.J. Anderson, Jimmy
Painter, Zack Black and current
senior Mason Marshall.
The Region 4-2A meet will
be held April 20, also at Belen.

The sailfish seem to he
vacating the waters off the
Upper Ke\s. as they should
be this time of year. A few
were caught and released this
past week. but most charter
captains will switch gears
and go into dolphin mode
soon.
Notable reef catches
include the tasty yellowtaill
snapper and king mackerel.
The "oh wow\!" catch goes to
Capt. Skip Bradeen on the

pound king mackerel. It ate a
live blue runner on a kite.

action \was good. Catches
consisted of pemut, macker-

The sea trout could not be

They are throughout the ba\

Keys hog the ESPN spotlight


Fishing shows
are mainstays
of cable network

ESPN didn't get to be the No.
1 sports network by being dumb.
That must be why it's aimed the
world's fishing spotlight square-
ly on the Florida Keys.
Its highly rated Sunday
mornings on ESPN2 dubbed
Saltwater Sundays have always
had an eclectic and diverse
group of shows and hosts.
And no matter where the
majority of fishing is done on
each show, you can bet that the
Keys will be a destination some-
time during each show's 13-
week season.
For example, the host of "Big
Game Fishing the World," Norm
Isaacs, lives in Key Largo.
Isaacs' brainchild, the Billfish
X-Treme Release League, has
the Keys as one of its six compe-
tition sites for 2007.
George Poveromo visits reg-
ularly to the Keys with his long-
running show, "The World of
Saltwater Fishing."
When Flip Pallot was waxing
poetic on "Walker's Cay Chron-
icles," you needed a broom to
whoosh him out of the Keys
because he was here filming so
often. It only made sense that he
changed sponsors to Cheeca
Lodge and now can be seen on


Verses (the
old OLN
channel).
Throw
in the two-
minute tips
by locals
T o m
Rowland
and Rich
Tudor on
Sunday
and you'll
understand
Cal Sutphin why the
Keys have
more than 300 charter captains
for a stretch of land running only
100 miles.
I feel Summerland Key's
Jose Wejebe, creator of "The
Spanish Fly" outdoor show, has
had the largest impact on fishing
tourism by making the Keys the
end all and be all of fishing des-
tinations with his long-running,
gorgeously produced show.
Wejebe continues the Midas
touch by not just showcasing the
beauty and fisheries of the Keys
with "Madfin Shark Tour-
nament," but more importantly
the people who fish here and.
their commitment to conserving
our resource. With Wejebe, the
Keys seem like an art pallet with
never-ending colors to show the
rest of the world.
Wejebe came up with the
concept of an all-release shark
tournament out of some negative


press ESPN2 received for airing
a shark-kill tournament from
New England called the Monster
Shark Tournament.
"Shark episodes always rate
very high on the networks, but
the negative press that came
along with a couple of programs
where the sharks were killed led
me to believe there had to be
another way," he says, thus the
creation of "Madfin."
Are viewers going to get into
a conservation-minded attempt
at a TV show where releasing
sharks is in vogue rather than
slamming a gaff hook into their
side? In the inaugural event last
year, Wejebe hoped the concept
could be accepted by viewers
nationwide.
"We purposely kept the field
small so we can cover-every
team fishing to enhance the
action," he says. "Instead of
having 200 boats in there, we
can do a lot more character
development with the field
being small and intimate."
Participant Capt. Ken Harris
of Key West agrees the action is
nonstop.
"Jose was in the helicopter
and it helped to have him expert-
ly know the area. Every time a
team called in a hook-up, the
helicopter was immediately
there catching all of it on film,"
he says. "You are going to see

Tarpon's now the name of the game


May points to -
two tourneys
in Middle Keys
Tarpon are on the tongues of
just about every guide right now,
as their numbers have risen so
much in recent days. Some of
the really big fish have shown up
and are giving anglers a real
good fanny kicking.
Bridge action has been best in
the mornings and evenings, like
always, with live baits and cast
artificial. Throughout the flats,
it's all going on.
Throughout the backcountry,
action is red hot, with the ability
for sight fishing very good. Now
you can spot fish wakes that are
not camouflaged by 6-inch rip-
ples. With the rising water tem-
peratures, more and more fish
are up on the area flats.
Oceanside has had more than
its share of action, as well, with
tons of tarpon around to excite
area anglers. Permit have been


Dave Navarro


one of the
hottest fish
to find for
several
weeks
now, with
catches in
excess of
15 pounds
common.
Bayside
action has
finally
expanded
from just
mackerel


to snapper, trout, redfish and
grouper. There are still quite a
few mackerel well into the bay,
more than 10 miles, with numer-
ous big cobia in the same vicini-
ty.
One very noticeable species
around the back islands is mullet
pushing into the area. There are
times where you can see 4 to 6
acres of them mudding their way
through.

with good grouped action from
35 to 90 feet of water. The mut-
ton-snapper catch is almost as
good as the yellowtail. Some
very big groupers have been
taken from a little east of Big
Pine Shoal through Cudjoe Key
reefs.
The clarity of the water along
the edge has been awesome. It
had cleared up tremendously and
at times, you could see your prey
swimming on the bottom in
more than 60 feet of water. This
caused the need for fluorocarbon
leaders to catch much.
Offshore action has not only
some sails, dolphin and tunas,
but also a good run of swordfish.
This last full moon was a bonan-
za for the night-feeding billfish.
Most of the action was around
28 to 32 miles out on live baits
such as blue runners, while


For a light-tackle thrill, cast a
plug or large jig into these muds,
as you will find huge jacks,
cobia and other large predators
feeding on the mullet. This is
also the sure-fire sign that tons
of tarpon are soon to be in (it's
like mom calling "dinner's
ready" on Thanksgiving).
We're now entering the heart
of tarpon fishing in the Middle
Keys, which runs well through
June.
One mention of a couple of
all-release tarpon tournaments
next month: the 31st annual
Ladies Tarpon Tournament May
4 and 5, and 41st annual
Marathon International Tarpon
Tournament May 10, 11 and 12.
Space is still available. You
can send me an e-mail@world-
classan@comcast.net for further
information on them, or drop by
the store at mile marker 50 bay-
side for information.
On the other side of the
islands, action is very good from
the reef and beyond.
Yellowtails are hot right now,

rigged squid had its share. This
should continue to be good
through most of the summer, if
..history holds true.
Having the good weather to
fish at night for these monsters
is one of the main keys to suc-
cess. Just having the ability to
go out that far without having
your organs attempting to
switch places makes a big dif-
ference. This fishery has really
taken off the past couple of
years with the ban of long-lin-
ing throughout the Keys
waters.
What is nice now is a small
one can be released alive and
not dead as a doornail as .was
done with a long line.
Speaking of offshore fish-


ing, that will be the topic at this
week's free seminar at our out-
door amphitheater in our
Marine Educational Center at
mile marker 50 bayside
Thursday beginning 6:30 p.m.
We'll cover trolling to catch,
and not just fish different
techniques and strategies used
on the off days as well as when
they are so thick, you are afraid
of running over them.
One other store note: We
will be closed this Sunday
afternoon for services in the
memory of Paul Wright, a long-
time employee and very good
friend. We will only be open
from 7 to 11 a.m. that day.

some things in this year's

What's refreshing is
Wejebe's commitment to the
fishermen here in the Keys.
A majority of the captains
competing in this year's events
are the working man's blue-col-

Harris, Rush Maltz, Steve
Impallomeni, Steve Lamp, Mark
Johnson and Rob Fordyce, to
name a few.
Wejebe is also quick to credit
the production group JM
Associates as the real reason
behind the show's success, with


slick film angles, aerial shots,
and catching every dangerous
tail wrap and hook removal with
reckless abandon.
"Everybody at JM is at the
top at what they do, and when
the whole thing comes together,
what you get is a finished prod-
uct that you are extremely proud
of. I think that is exactly what
we have here. "JM deserves the
credit for the success of the
'Madfin'."
The "Madfin" ranked as the
second-highest viewed outdoor
show ever on ESPN2 last year.
Wejebe didn't seem particularly
surprised.
"The neat thing about the
Madfin is that you can be an
avid angler and enjoy it, you can
be somebody who's just a casu-
al fisherman and can enjoy it,
and you can be a person who


doesn't fish at all and enjoy the
show. The reason is because
there's excitement, humor and a
lot of drama with the sharks
being the stars more than the
captains."
On any given Sunday, you
can see the Keys in all their fish-
ing glory on ESPN2. Tune in
Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m.
on ESPN2 to catch the action.
'Reelin' in the Keys with Cal'
airs at 8 p.m. Monday and 4
p.m. Friday on Comcast Cable
Channel 19. The next episode
has Monroe County Cooperative
Extension Service Doug
Gregory and the director of the
Florida Keys Commercial
Fishermen's Association, Scott
Zimmerman, giving us a state of
the union of commercial fishing.
