Cay Clubs wants more time


Developer seeks
another extension
on district land
By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com

As the deadline to close on the
Marathon Manor property
loomed, Cay Clubs Resorts and
Marinas on April 13 asked the
Monroe County School District


for a fourth closing extension,
according to Superintendent
Randy Acevedo.
Now, it looks like the superin-
tendent's patience is running out.
"Why do they need the exten-
sions? We're not overly happy
about having to give them the
extensions. We want to get on
with affordable housing there,"
Acevedo said.
He said the board will discuss


the fourth extension at its
Tuesday meeting in Key West.
At its meeting on Jan. 23 in
Marathon, the School Board
agreed to give Cay Clubs three
optional 30-day closing exten-
sions at a price of $50,000 per
extension on top of the $7.4 mil-
lion purchase price.
Now in its third extension
period, Cay Clubs is running out
of time and has put $150,000 into

people I worked with witnessed
the 10 and even 12-hour days I
put in. I am sure that there are
many employees, as well as
community partners, who have
a different opinion than what is
presented in this report."
Some of May's colleagues
and patients are outraged at the
allegations in the state report.
"The reports are completely
one-sided," Judy O'Hara
Vetrick wrote in an e-mail to the
Keynoter.
Vetrick and her husband were
patients of May when she had a
private practice in Tavernier.
"I am convinced that the
politicians wanted to clean
house for the new regime in
Tallahassee and Susana needed
to take the fall."
The report, issued after May
resigned from the Health
Department after three years in
the job, concluded May treated
staffers unprofessionallyy," vio-
lated state policy by paying for
food and beverages with state
funds, and refused treatment for
clients with sexually transmitted
diseases who could not pay for
services.
Ironically, May's most recent


1i job evalua-
tion, issued in
~ October, rated
-her overall
1 performance
S as outstand-
ing.
"Overall,
,' the Monroe
MAo County
MAY H health
Department is improving its
performance under Dr. May's
leadership and I am very
pleased with Dr. May's
progress," wrote Bonita
Sorensen, May's immediate
supervisor at the state
Department of Health.
Kathy Spurlock served as the
local Health Department's
chronic-disease prevention
coordinator under May. Though
she has returned to her home in
New Orleans, she still calls May
her mentor.
"She was really interested in
the community aspect of public
health," she said. "She really
had a passion and worked with
me hand in hand."
"I could never repay her for
what she's done in my life," said
Margie Scacci, a Tavernier
patient who also worked for
May before she came to the
Health Department.


"There were times I had no
money and she treated me any-
way. And she's the kind of doc-
tor who calls you at home to fol-
low up."
Scacci says she is pulling
together a petition asking that
the state report be withdrawn.
May contends her directive
about not treating patients with
sexually transmitted diseases
who couldn't pay was interpret-
ed by the state as denying treat-
ment. Rather, -she says it was
only a requirement for patients
to provide proof of income on a
quarterly basis.
As for the food expenses at
conferences, May told investi-
gators the food "came with the
expense of the room."
Michael Cunningham, .exec-
utive director of the Area Health
Education Center, said the pri-
mary thrust of his organization
is to pull together events for the
Health Department. It's not
unusual, he said, for the pro-
grams to roll food and drink
costs into the overall bill.
May said she was shocked to
read about the state report in the
Keynoter, adding that the state
had not informed her of the
results a week after the report
was released.


Deadline's here in two weeks


VMS/ From I

of the Florida Keys Commercial
Fishermen's Association. "By
the time everybody gets done
with them, there won't be much
of an industry left."
Boats holding a federal
reef-fish permit from the Gulf
of Mexico Fishery Manage-
ment Council must have a
working VMS by May 6. The
devices cost $3,100, plus costs
of installation and monthly
signal charges.
"It's an ankle bracelet for
boats," Zimmerman said,
comparing the VMS to elec-
tronic devices attached to
criminal defendants or
parolees.
The federal government has
a reimbursement program that
repays fishermen the purchase
cost of the least expensive
VMS unit available, which is
listed at $3,095.
Installation and signal


charges are not covered by the
program.
"We believe this is largely
unproven technology,"
Zimmerman said. "There are
questions about the batteries
and everything else."
The Gulf of Mexico
Fishery Management Council
decided in 2005 to require a
VMS for the 1,070 boats that
hold commercial reef-fish per-
mits within its jurisdiction.
Primarily, the VMS is
intended to let federal law-
enforcement staff use satellite
signals to monitor the location
of commercial boats so they
can see when a boat approach-
es an area closed to fishing.
Many of the closed areas
intended to protect spawning
stocks lie far from shore, mak-
ing it difficult and costly for
law-enforcement boats to
patrol regularly.
The devices can help fish-
ermen by providing an emer-
gency contact device that


gives rescues an exact vessel
position, federal staff has
maintained.
The VMS program remains
highly unpopular with com-
mercial fishermen, who have
raised doubts about the dura-
bility of the computerized sys-
tems on smaller boats exposed
to the elements.
VMS technology was pio-
neered in the Pacific Ocean,
where commercial boats tend
to be larger with protected
cabins, gulf fishermen say.
The Gulf Fishermen's
Association, based in Tampa,
sued over the VMS require-
ment, charging it "will likely
cause many vessel owners to
go out of business." Status of
the lawsuit was not available
at press time.
Federal officials said a boat
owner needing a VMS should
not wait to contact a manufac-
turer, since installers have a
waiting list.

Algae is dissipating


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


A Florida Bay algae bloom
that thrived for more than a year
seems to have dissipated in recent
months.
"The news is getting better.
The bloom appears to be going
away," said Peter Frezza, a biolo-
gist with the Audubon Society's
National Science Center in
Tavernier.
Recent monitoring reports
show the levels of chlorophyll and
total phosphorus "are down to just
about the pre-bloom level," said
Frezza. "The conditions seem to
be almost back to normal."
A blue-crab fisherman told
researchers that his citch, which
disappeared during the bloom, "is
coming back," Frezza related.
"The water definitely is more
clear."
Measures of algae concentra-
tions and phosphorous "have
been on a downward trend for a
few months," Frezza said.
The algae bloom, first reported
in November 2005, clouded bay
waters near the 18-Mile Stretch of
U.S. 1 and affected bay fishing.


Unlike red algae, the blue-
green algae are not toxic.
However, heavy concentrations
killed aquatic vegetation by cut-
ting off sunlight: The algae then
feasted on the decaying vegetation.
Government scientists say pin-
pointing a cause for the bloom is
difficult because several factors
likely played a role.
A study undertaken by the
South Florida Water Management
District indicated "the most likely
causes" were runoff from three
large storms [in 2005], freshwater
discharges from the C-111 canal
and leaching from septic tanks,"
said an agency spokeswoman.
Construction and dredging
along the 18-Mile Stretch of U.S.
1 also may have played a role, but
scientists have been unable to
confirm that.
The type of blue-green algae
had not been seen in the northeast
comer of Florida Bay before the
bloom appeared in November
2005.
"Whether it will come back in
the future, we don't know,"
Frezza said. "All we can do is
continue monitoring..."

Manor deal in doubt


MANOR / From I

escrow.
On Aug. 18, 2005, the School
Board voted to purchase the 7-
acre property that once held the
Marathon Manor nursing home
for no more than $7.4 million. It's
adjacent to Marathon High
School.
The board bought Marathon
Manor when it closed and had
planned to use it for housing for
district employees. Then in 2005,
Cay Clubs approached the dis-
trict about buying it and giving
some of its land to the School
District for sports fields.-
Cay Clubs would then use the
rest of the property to build
affordable housing for its own
employees.
On Sept. 28, 2006, Cay Clubs
and the board finalized a contract
for the company to purchase the
property and develop a 65-unit
affordable housing complex.
Now that Cay Clubs
approaches the extended closing
deadline, 180 days after agreeing


to purchase the Marathon Manor
property, district officials and
School Board members want to
know why the company needs
even more time.
Upon receiving a fourth
extension, Cay Clubs would
release the $150,000 in extension
fees from escrow and pay School
District the interest on the $7.4
million that the district would
have accrued during the exten-
sion periods, Acevedo said.
If the board refuses the fourth
extension, the deal will be off, he
said.
Frank Rego, Cay Clubs devel-
opment vice president, said the
project is being delayed due to
financing and putting loans in
place.
Some board members have
expressed skepticism about Cay
Clubs' reasons for the extension.
"I sincerely hope that they
haven't lost interest in Marathon
Manor," board member Steven
Pribramsky said.
But Rego said Cay Clubs has
"every intention of moving for-
ward."

Sewers causing


torn-up roads


And Shark Key
gets OK for
county pipes
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

A row over paving will not
slow Key Largo sewer construc-
tion, at least for now.
The Monroe County Com-
mission, during its regular meet-
ing in Key West Wednesday,
instructed county staff to approve
permits on two phases of the
project but will delay a decision
on repaving the roads.
Monroe County Engineer
David Koppel said he has been
battling the Key Largo
Wastewater Treatment District
over how roads are being
repaired after the sewer infra-
structure is installed.
According to Koppel, permit
applications show that the district
would do only trench repair
rather than resurface the entire
road, leaving a potentially rough
ride for cars.
"The issue here is restoring
the roads to the original condi-
tion," Koppel said, adding that
Key Largo residents have com-
plained about patched trenches in
the roads. "You cannot bring a
road back with traditional trench
work."
District representative Tom
Dillon told the commission the
county was holding up progress
on installation of the sewer pipes
and other infrastructure because
of issues over whether the district
should patch the roads after the
installations or resurface the
entire road.
"This is a complete project,"
County Administrator Tom Willi
said. "The district cannot leave it
half done. Go look at the roads
yourself and see if you'd be
happy with it yourself."
Sewer district General
Manager Chuck Fishbum point-
ed out that resurfacing the roads
without updating the stormwater
systems doesn't make sense.
The commission agreed to
allow the permits, while delaying
a decision on the method of
repaving until after the May com-
mission meeting in Key Largo.
Talking sewers in the Lower


Keys, the commission voted
unanimously install a collection
system for residents at Shark
Key, a gated community of 74
luxury homes just off Geiger
Key.
In 2006, the commission
voted that public funding could
be used to install sewer pipes
only in public rights of way.
In March, Michael Halpem,
representing the Shark Key
Homeowners Association, asked
the commission to reconsider.

connect the neighborhood to the

now under construction, is esti-
mated at $2.1 million.
Elizabeth Wood, the county's
senior administrator of sewer
projects, recommended the
move. However, she encouraged
the commission to establish "a
standard of how much we spend
to service how many people."
Wood said another neighbor-
hood being connected to the Big
Coppitt project is in a similar sit-
uation.
"On Rockland Hammock
we're spending over $1 million
to service about 3 percent of the
population," she said.
Willi says he supports the
county including gated commu-
nities rather than forcing them to
pay for the infrastructure that
would connect them to a sewer
project. Willi says it makes the
burden of paying for sewers
"more equitable."

Seven Mile Run

more than a race

This morning, the pounding feet of runners crossing the
Seven Mile Bridge are making some big noise on the fundrais-
ing front.
The Marathon Runners Club, which has sponsored the race
since 1982, estimates total dollars raised by the event now top-
ping the $370,000 mark.
Money is earmarked for youth sports programs, scholarships,
help with registration fees and other worthy causes.
The Bridge Run began as a way to celebrate the new span
linking the Lower Keys to Marathon. The first run, in May
1982, took place before the new bridge opened to vehicles.
It's become a much-sought-after event, with runners coming
from all over the world. Participation is limited to the first
1,500 who send in completed applications. And every year,
sponsors get more requests than they can accommodate.
When the bridge closes for this annual event, remember the
goodwill for our area and the money being raised to help our
kids.
We applaud Denise Pankow, Jim Dorl, Bobbie and Chuck
Bayles, Ginger Sayer and the hard-working, dedicated band of
Marathon Runners Club volunteers, which now numbers more
than 400 pairs of helping hands (and feet).
And we salute this wonderful race tradition that has done so
much good for the young people in our community, raising
hundreds of thousands of dollars for local school and youth
athletic programs in the Keys.

How not to conduct business

Well, all we can say at this point is it could have been worse.
We're talking about the momentary lapse of sanity experi-
enced by the County Commission in acquiring waterfront
restaurants and boat ramps.
Today, you'll read about the sorry situation involving the
Hickory House purchase on Stock Island.
But don't forget last year the board was also looking at
spending $3.5 million to buy the Latin American Cafe at mile
marker 107 because it offered a boat ramp for public access
near the 18-Mile'Stretch.
And of course, there was the Geiger Key Marina, another
well-intentioned wish list property that the county can ill
afford.
Pretty quickly, we hope, the County Commission along with
other taxing bodies will realize the purse strings need to close.
If the county can sell the Hickory House (it paid $3.12 mil-
lion for it four months ago) without taking a bath, we can chalk
it up as painful lesson learned with this admonition: Don't
repeat the same mistake again.

There's a way around Southernmost photo problems


EDITOR:
I've read with open heart some of the letters
from people who take exception to my sculp-
tures at the Southernmost Point.
They say they do not wish their personal
photos to include what to them are mannequins
or worse, Disney-like images.-I agree with
their upset feelings; they don't have a choice.
It must seem arrogant of the people who
Asked me to do the work and, more important-
ly, me to appear to force this indignity on
them, although we purposely spread the sculp-
tured figures wide apart to enable someone to
frame them out by bringing the camera in
close. If they did not realize this option, I can't
blame them for these feelings and there could
*be many more who would feel the same way.
It is just as important to note that there are
also thousands and thousands of others who
take joy in planning poses and combinations of
poses with the sculptures for their memory


albums in both close and distant homes in the
U.S. and the world, reminding them to'return
to Key West where they had this fun.
Luckily, there is a good solution for the oth-
ers.
Key West City Commissioner Clayton
Lopez has the answer and, as he says, it's sim-
ple. Paint on the other side of the buoy a
repeat of the graphics of the Southernmost
Point so people have a choice whether to pose
with or without the sculptures. It also would
reduce the lines on either side, so if someone
is trying'to get a quick shot before their plane
leaves, they can do it. It also would reduce
congestion.
Let's not throw the baby out with the bath
water. Either way, not painting the other side
of the buoy or removing the sculptures would
hurt a lot of people.

Taxpayers have had enough of bloated budgets


EDITOR:
County workers and bureaucrats take heed.
Shut your doors and windows, turn your face
and hide your first-born, for the budget bogey-
man, previously known as the county adminis-
trator, is coming after you.
Arrogantly proud of a history of submitting
budgets with double-digit tax increases to cover
foolish and unbridled spending (Sterling
Process, unnecessary government buildings,
sinking ships, buying real estate, runaway proj-
ect costs, etc.), the coup d'etat was the submit-
tal of a 2006 budget that was blown to the tune
of seven digits even before it was submitted
and approved by the county gods (whose
omnipotence must have failed them just this
one time).
The budget bogeyman, having made them
look like merely incompetent mortals, nearly
lost his taxpayer-funded cushy job and associat-
ed perks. Singing the budget-cutting theme
song louder and with more bravado than Kate
Smith sang "God Bless America," the budget
bogeyman has now fully converted by the reali-

EDITOR:
As owner and captain of a one-boat sail-
ing charter operation'in Marathon, there are
some people I would like to thank.
I was dismasted in mid-January and the
new spar I ordered finally arrived the first
week of April. On the eve of an important
charter, several local businesses stepped up
and went above and beyond to help get me
up and running.
Sincere thanks to the folks at Inflatable

Smorgasboat Harbor Taxi and West Marine.
They prove that in Marathon, it isn't just
doing business, it's being part of a commu-

ty of lost wages and is now a born-again budg-
et-cutting expert.
But fear not, county workers and bureau-
crats, for the taxpayers have heard this siren
song before and have been promised restrained
and fiscally responsible budgets, but always
with a wink and a nod. All because the county
gods really believe that the taxpayers are bloat-
ed, gilded, Jabba the Hut types lounging and
being hand-fed Beluga caviar and washing it
down with the finest from Chateau du Breuil
and whose penchant for living in paradise over-
comes all rational thoughts.
The taxpayers have their own apparition who
admittedly is often found dormant or totally
asleep. But once awakened by the excesses of
incompetence and arrogance, it has the ferocity
of a pack of starving hyenas and the determina-
tion of a bull elephant in deep musk.
Watch out, county gods, for the taxpayers
will unleash upon you their own ballot-box
bogeyman.

Test everyone for
EDITOR:
Drug addicts lie to obtain
money, control or just sympathy.
Cocaine addicts are especially
fond of using sympathy as part
of a larger, more complex game
designed to gain some foothold
of control on you or me.
I do feel sorry for them
because they don't have a mus-
tard-seed-sized tiny bit of self
control and faith in themselves
or God. They leave themselves
wide open to Satan's games,
drug and alcohol addiction, etc.,
and all the fixings that go with
them.
They need our help and
prayers but not our money and
sympathy. The evil that took
them over came from within
them, as all evil does.
Themselves and God are their
only hope for a cure.
Their claim is that their par-
ents, childhood, war experi-
ences, etc., are to blame for their
neurosis, which it definitely is
that.
They refuse to accept any
responsibility for their problem.
Not facing their self-made prob-
lem and blaming everyone else
in the world is the main reason
cults and self-help groups fail
them in the long run.
I find it ironic and funny
when one of these poor unfortu-
nates tells the world what they
should ingest in the form of food
or drink, what herbal remedy to
use, or what social or cultural


drug addiction
disease or addiction everyone
else in the world has.
According to the real addict,
anyone who drinks beer, smokes
a doobie now and again or goes
to a bikini contest is dangerously
addicted to those things. They
are then somehow drugged (lit-
erally and figuratively) down to
the real addict's level in so as to
draw attention away from them-
selves.
But this type of false prophe-
sizing doesn't stand in the real
.world, of which the real addicts
know very little, chemically
insulated from it as they are.
The real addict cannot or will
not control their base urges for
gratification. They ingest all
manner of deadly things, per-
form unspeakable acts of depre-
dation on themselves, their fami-
ly, friends, children, etc., for
their own putrid goals. No
excuses. This is subhuman
behavior and should be treated
as such.
We as a people routinely
check our pets for disease. We
spend a lot of time and money
doing that because we-love our
pets. How more important are
the human ones we love com-
pared to birds, fish, dogs, cats,
etc.?
And yet, how many families
and churches test the ones they
claim to love for deadly drug
addiction?

Relay is most successful ever


EDITOR:
On April 13 and 14, during the
annual Relay for Life event, the
residents of the Middle Keys
once again proved their commit-
ment to the community and resi-
dents.
Due to the efforts of all vol-
unteers, committee members,
sponsors and the public, we
raised $154,000 for the
American Cancer Society, the
single largest sum ever raised in
the Middle Keys Relay for the
American Cancer Society.
From the bottom of my heart,
I thank each and every person.
We will find a cure for cancer in
our lifetime and the research
money we all helped raised will
go far to that end.
I am so proud to be part of
this community and proud to
have been a part of this year's
event. My heart is so full I can't
even begin to express the effect
the Relay for Life has had on
my life personally, from the


many wonderful people I met to
the new treatments that will help
many to live a better life. We
had more survivors this year
with hopes we will have even
more next year.
Again, my personal thank-
you to all.

State's economic engine

getting major overhaul


Looking at the major differences in House
and Senate plans for property tax reform can
best be viewed as a case of the haves and the
have-nots.
The House approach definitely is written to
reward current homeowners who qualify for
homestead protection, eliminating all proper-
ty taxes in one version and substituting a
higher state sales tax.
The way this works: the more expensive the
home you own, the more tax savings the
Florida Housewill give you.
So the haves get even more tax relief and
the have-nots (i.e., those who rent) get to help
subsidize those rich homeowners via higher
sales taxes.
The Senate approach is a bit less
one-sided, but does call for a roll-
back in property taxes to levels of
2005-06.
According to estimates, that
could result in a 12 percent roll-
back using statewide averages. Of
course, the actual amount would
vary depending on where you live
and what taxing districts levied on
your home the past two years.
The Senate version doesn't
include any increase in sales tax,
which is likely to warm the hearts
of most Florida businesses, which
already foresee a loss of sales from Wayne
any increase in taxes on goods. Keynoter
Both the House and Senate plans
contain some relief for owners of
commercial property, which could help
renters down the road but there are no
guarantees and the various methods of chang-
ing assessments open yet another can of.
worms not yet fully explained.
Of interest to landlords, the Senate envi-
sions some tax relief for owners of commer-
cial properties by limiting assessments to
"current use," not the "highest and best" use,
standard that has been applied statewide for
decades.
This means landlords who are trying to
maintain modest rents to provide some
affordable housing alternatives could get
some tax relief under the Senate plan.
A variation on that idea has been proposed
as a way to save the working waterfronts in
the Keys.
Another issue tackled by both the House
and Senate addressing haves and have-nots
involves what's been called portability.
Because the Save Our Homes constitution-
al amendment protects homesteaded property
owners from tax increases in excess of 3 per-
cent per year, folks who've stayed put the
past dozen years have actually seen their tax
bite go down in some cases.
This happens in areas where tax rolls have
been increasing each year by double-digit
rates. "New" money from those higher


assessments on unprotected homes and busi-
nesses has actually reduced tax bills for those
who stay put.
Ah, but staying put is not something the
Florida real estate industry likes because the
pattern of starting out small in a starter home
and building equity to move on up and buy a
bigger, newer house has been a huge eco-
nomic driver in the state's economy for
decades.
Ironically, Save Our Homes has become a
sort of cocoon that keeps people from selling
one house and buying another because the
jump in property taxes is more than they can
stand.
This also stymies some seniors who'd like
to downsize, but feel trapped by
the tax bite they face at full mar-
ket rate on their "smaller, less
expensive" house.
The House addresses this by
allowing homeowners to transfer
their 3 percent cap status to a new
Some as long as it remains their
primary residence.
The Senate curbs that generous
tax "shelter" angle by setting a
S limit of $500,000 for transfer, and
setting up a recovery schedule
over a seven- to eight-year period.
For part of that "catch-up" period,
Markham the cap would rise to 10 percent
Publisher before leveling off at the 3 percent
annual cap.
First-time homebuyers get some
modest help in the Senate plan with a
$50,000 homestead exemption if they buy a
primary residence priced above $100,000
(yes, there are still places in Florida where
homes are available for under $100,000, hard
as that might be to imagine).
In the House version, first-time homebuy-
ers get no specific help, although eliminating
all state property taxes would make initial
entry costs more affordable.
Both houses in the Florida Legislature
looked at the dilemma facing snowbird buy-
ers, who wind up footing the heaviest tax bur-
den because they fall outside the Save Our
Homes protection.
The Senate has proposed some modest
reductions in property taxes on these season-
al residents, but few details are sure. And the
House offers up a bit more tax relief for non-
primary residences, but again with few
details.
Actually, the process of consolidating ver-
sions from both legislative bodies and finding
common ground for a joint plan begins now,
with only a few weeks left in this year's reg-
ularly scheduled legislative session.
You will certainly be hearing more about
this, especially since it could well prove to be
the biggest change to this state's economic
engine in decades.

Residents show up, shut out


Commission
delays action
on moratorium
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

A crowd of residents left
Wednesday's Monroe County
Commission meeting frustrated
and grumbling. Robert Cintron,
an attorney who represents most
of them pro bono, shuffled out
with them.
"You'cant' give up, we gotta
keep fighting," Cintron said.
Dozens of residents of mobile-
home parks dropped what they
were doing Wednesday and drove
or hitched a ride to Key West.
The commission, during the
morning segment of its regular
monthly meeting at the Harvey
Government Center, had sched-
uled a discussion of a proposed
moratorium on redevelopment of
trailer parks at 4 p.m.
The coconut telegraph did its
job, and people came down and
signed little blue cards so they
could speak their mind.

Thirteen signed up but the
commission voted to continue the
subject to its May. 16 meeting in
Key Largo after only four public
speakers.
"They slammed the door in
our faces," said Olive Nickerson,
a snowbird who spent most of her
year in her mobile home at
Lucky's Landing on Little Torch
Key.
"I drove 70 miles not to be
allowed to speak," said Carol
Hamon, one of the residents of
the Seahorse RV Park on Big
Pine Key who is looking at a
Sept. 1 eviction.
"We've sat for years and
talked about preserving trailer
parks," said Bill Loewy, a Habit
for Humanity of the Lower Keys
executive and one of the speakers
who addressed the commission
before the item was tabled.
"Parks all up and down the
Keys are disappearing at a rate
that is truly phenomenal. From
Summerland to Big Pine, five
parks [have closed] in less than
six months. That is 350-plus units
that will be lost or at least
changed in character."
Cintron volunteered to repre-
sent the residents of Seahorse last
year after Boca Developers
issued eviction notices to the
entire park.
The developer has been trying
to work a deal with the county to
transfer market-rate building
rights from the park to a water-
front parcel it owns in Key Largo.
In exchange, Boca has offered to
build affordable housing at the
Seahorse site, though most cur-
rent residents would likely not be

Saunders named to
budget conference

State Rep. Ron Saunders,
Democrat representing the Keys,
is one of nine House members
named this week as an at-large

Conference Committee.
That committee will meet to
resolve differences between the

Senate and House and produce a

able to afford the new units.
Cintron has also filed a law-
suit on behalf of 30 residents of
Lucky's Landing who received
eviction notices just before
Christmas.
"I do not believe, frankly, that
the County Commission is get-
ting the message," Cintron said
during the meeting. "Mobile-
home parks are being closed for
redevelopment as we speak."
Cintron had introduced the
idea of a six-month moratorium
during a commission workshop
April 3. That would give the
county time, he said, to pass a
mobile-home protection ordi-
nance was drafted by the county
Workforce Housing Task Force.
A similar moratorium expired
last May.
It stalled redevelopment of
mobile-home parks into high-end
housing until the county came up
with an ordinance that requires
landowners to set aside 30 per-
cent of new or redeveloped hous-
ing as affordable, according to
the county's affordable housing
guidelines.
Marathon and Islamorada
have ordinances aimed at protect-
ing mobile-home parks.
Commissioner George
Neugent said, "Affordable hous-
ing is nothing but lip service. We
haven't done anything and we
aren't willing to do anything and
I apologize immensely."
The mobile-home-park pro-
tection ordinance, still in the
formative stages, includes a num-
ber of incentives for property
owners to retain affordable hous-
ing.
"This will give park owners
the opportunity to do the right
thing," said Ed Swift.
Swift has been a vocal advo-
cate of affordable housing and
has developed a number of
affordable housing projects. He
also serves on the county's task
force and wrote most of the pro-
visions in the proposed ordi-
nance.
"The entire board of Seahorse
was here," Seahorse resident
.Nancy Chatelaine said after the
meeting Wednesday, "because
they wanted a decision on the
moratorium."
"We're getting organized,"
said Raymond Fries, also from
Seahorse. He says the group
hopes to convince the county to
buy the park from Boca and sell it
to the residents. It's a move
Cintron suggested for other parks.

Impact fees likely


They would
add to costs
of construction
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

A person attempting to build a
2,000-square-foot home in
Marathon must currently pay
$4,735 in impact fees to the city.
The Marathon City Councilis
now scheduled to consider
another fee to cover assumed
impacts to affordable housing a
little more than a week after the
Planning Commission voted
down the measure.
The council meets at 6:30
p.m. Tuesday at the Marathon
Government Center.
The affordable-housing
impact fees stem from a city-
commissioned study by Clarion
Associates along with James
Nicholas, who produced the
study resulting in the city's other
impact fees.
According to the staff report,
"the study clearly showed that

opment in the city creates signif-
icant demand for affordable and
employee housing." Planning
Director Fred Gross said he
agrees.
"The idea of the affordable-
housing impact fee is when you
build these things, you're actual-
ly using employers with employ-
ees to build them," Gross said.
"You are impacting the afford-
able housing situation with new
development, and you should be
paying a share of it."
"The other way, residents that
are here now, we are paying the
share through taxes," Gross
added. "The idea is that this
spreads it out a little more to the
new owners."
The ordinance recommends a
residential impact fee of $1 per
square foot for new development
of 500 to 1,500 square feet,
1,501 to 2,500 square feet at $2,
2,501 to 3,000 square feet at $3,
3,001 to 4,000 square feet at $4
and anything greater at $5 per
square foot.
Added to the current impact
fees for parks, public safety,
environmental conservation and
county garbage and libraries,
total fees to build a -2,000-
square-foot home would be
$8,735.
For commercial development,
the ordinance proposes fees per
1,000 square feet of develop-
ment based on type: $10,000 for
institutional, $35,000 for office
and retail and $50,000 for tourist
(including hotels and motels).
Added to current fees, devel-
opment of a 1,000-square-foot
bank would cost $45,324.


Planning Commission Vice
Chairman Steve Williams was in
the majority of a 3-2 vote to rec-
ommend the council deny the
new fees, saying they would be
too burdensome.
"How am I going to affect
affordable housing by building
my own home?" Williams said.
"That is harming our local resi-
dents that are already here. It's
taxes couched in the form of
impact fees."
Large-scale residential devel-
opments subject to conditional
uses or development agreements
would be assessed at $35 per
square foot.
Currently, developers of large
residential and hotel and motel
projects must build a number of
affordable units equal to 20 per-
cent of the total number of proj-
ect units. Or the developer can
contribute $200,000 per required
affordable unit.
Gross said the current method
is not resulting in any new
affordable housing, as most
developers decide to pay money
rather than build.
For those who decide to
build, Gross said the city has
allocated more than 90 afford-
able rate-of-growth ordinance
building permits and few, if any
at all, units have been built.
"They are not building it, and
we can't build it because they are
sitting on those allocations we
need," Gross said. "And when
they do build, they are for their
employees they bring with them.
They are not for Marathon resi-
dents in dire need of affordable
housing, and they are not going
to relieve the pressure for afford-
able housing."

Marathon building chief resigns her post


City manager
says she won't
be replaced
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

Marathon Building Services
Director Rose Ann Hightower
tendered her resignation
Monday, effective May 13, to
pursue a job with a contract
company that performs work
related to Federal Emergency
Management Agency policies,
City Manager Mike Puto said.
Puto said Community
Services Director Susie Thomas
is also considering leaving the
city pending the sale of her
Marathon home, although Puto
said this is not reminiscent of
the mass exodus of staff that
occurred last year.


"With Rose Ann, she got an
offer she couldn't refuse and
she's moving up," Puto said.
"With Susie, she has had her
house for sale for about a year
now, but I predict she'll be here
a little while longer."
Half a dozen employees left
the city in spring 2006. Those
employees were then-City Clerk
Cindy Ecklund and five of seven
Planning Department staffers,
including Director Gail Kenson,
who's now Key West's planning
director.
While all gave varying rea-
sons for leaving the city, an
anonymous complaint mailed to
City Council members and
media spoke of a hostile work
environment, ineffective man-
agement and intrusive council
members.
In her resignation letter,


Hightower speaks complimenta-
ry of city management and par-
ticularly of Puto.
"You and the members of the
city staff could not have been
more helpful, friendlier, or more
cooperative," the letter states.
"You created a perfect environ-
ment for me for learning and
growing professionally."
Both Hightower and Thomas
received large salary increases
this past budget season when
their departments and duties
were reorganized following a
city-commissioned efficiency
study.
Thomas received a salary
increase from $64,777 to
$74,060 when the former
Engineering Department
became Community Services
and Thomas became director,
overseeing Public Works, Parks
and Recreation, sewers and
stormwater, capital projects and


grant coordination.
Hightower, then executive
plans coordinator under the
Building Department, became
director of building services
when her department merged
with Code Compliance. Her
salary increased from $60,589
to $71,415.
Puto said Hightower's
expertise was so broad, particu-
larly in post-disaster and
FEMA-related issues, that it
would be nearly impossible to
find a direct replacement, so he


will likely split her duties
among current Building
Department staff.
Puto said current Building
Official Bob Welch would head
the department.
"We've had other people
attend FEMA training, and she
will work with them to keep
things going," Puto said.
"Hopefully, we'll just keep our
fingers crossed we won't have
any major events for a while,
because that's when she showed
how good she was."


Last vote for election date change


Council also to
discuss city hall
options Tuesday
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
is scheduled to meet in regular
session at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at
the Marathon Government
Center. Agenda items include,
among others:
Second reading of an ordi-
nance changing the date of the
City Council elections from
March to November to coincide
with other county, state and
national elections.
The ordinance came follow-
ing a March non-binding refer-
endum where nearly 58 percent
of voters wanted the election
date to change.
The motion passed 4-1 at
first reading, with Councilman
Mike Cinque dissenting due to
the fact that it would increase
the term lengths of sitting coun-
cil members by eight months. If
approved, the next city election
would occur in November 2008
and three seats would be up.
Resolutions approving
new lease agreements to rent
office and trailer space for city
hall at the 100th Street Center


for total monthly payments of
$8,638.
At the last meeting, council
directed City Manager Mike
Puto to investigate entering into
a month-to-month lease agree-
ment until the city can procure
four more trailers to install next
to current temporary offices on
the city events field between
98th and 99th streets.
Puto said all city staff could
be housed in eight trailers, and
it could save the city roughly
$7,000 a month in rent now
being paid at the 100th Street
Center.
Puto said there would still be
space at the front of the events
field to begin construction of a
new city hall and county library
building. The council scheduled
a workshop for April 26 to dis-
cuss city hall construction and
design issues.
An ordinance requiring
property owners to maintain
landscaping on public rights of
way between their property
lines and public roads.
Councilman Don Vasil spon-
sored the ordinance as a way to
save money on hired landscap-
ers maintaining property that
Vasil said is also maintained by
many property owners.
The ordinance requires the


rights of way to be kept "in a
clean, litter-free and mowed
condition. Maintenance shall be
limited to mowing only the
grass and performing general
edging, trimming and cleanup
activities of that grass."
If the rights of way are not
maintained, the city may notify
the property owner, who will
then have 10 days to "rectify"
the situation. If the maintenance
is not done, the city can perform
the maintenance and assess the
cost as a lien against the
property.
Resolutions establishing
final rankings of the proposals
for building contractor services
and authorizing Puto to negotia-
tion contract with the top-
ranked firms.
A resolution approving the
market-rate and affordable resi-
dential building-permit alloca-
tions for this period under the
rate-of-growth ordinance per-
mitting system.
Appointments to the Land
Acquisition Board and Parks
and Recreation Committee from
Vasil and Cinque.
A resolution endorsing the
U.S. Conference of Mayors'
Climate Protection Agreement,
which encourages municipali-
ties to create environmentally
friendly operations policies.

Coral nursery may expand


Council says
it'll support
financial help
By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com


An advisory council will urge
the Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary to lend its official
backing to a coral restoration
project.
At a Tuesday meeting in
Marathon, the Sanctuary
Advisory Council agreed to urge
support for the underwater coral
nursery created and run by the
council's vice chairman, Ken


Nedimyer.
The council also will ask the
sanctuary to support him finan-
cially.
Nedimyer leases a live-rock
site within the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary.
When coral began growing on his
rocks, he said, he could have
made a lot of money selling it to
aquarists.
But he said he couldn't pass
up the chance to use the coral to
benefit the environment.
The coral farm, a nursery area
where Nedimyer has tended
pieces of staghorn corals to grow
for possible transplant to restora-


tion sites, has been more success-
ful than many expected.
Now Nedimyer has about
1,000 corals in his underwater
nursery that he said are "getting
out of control" and need to be
moved to a permanent home at
the reef.
He successfully transplanted
several corals to the Wellwood
site, where a 400-foot freighter
ran aground off Key Largo in
1984.
His goal is to get approval to
transplant corals in more areas
than just grounding sites.
Nursery-grown corals should "go
to places where this stuff would
have normally lived."
With the help of The Nature
Conservancy and a NOAA
Community-based Restoration
Program grant, Nedimyer said he
is studying coral resiliency, using
staghom coral as a model.
According to the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Admin-
istration Web site, staghom is a
branching coral with cylindrical
branches that range from a few
centimeters to more than two
meters in length and height. Its
common name is based on its
resemblance to the antlers of a


full-grown male deer, or stag.
Staghom coral is listed as a
threatened species under the
Endangered Species Act, along
with elkhom coral.
The project has allowed
Nedimyer to plant corals at sites
inshore, in mid-channel reefs, at
the reef crest and offshore in
order to study the changes in
growth and survival rates of 16 or
17 different genotypes of
staghom.
Sanctuary Advisory Council
member Chris Bergh of The
Nature Conservancy said it's time
to expand coral-transplant proj-
ects.
"You've got to walk before
you run and you've got to run
before you fly. I think we're
ready to run here," he said. "And
if you want to go from running to
flying, then you need more
money. I'm ready to start helping
raise money to do more."
Nedimyer said money is a big
help, but that the real problem is
permitting. He plans to begin
seeking permits soon.
Sanctuary Superintendent
Dave Score said he doesn't see
any "insurmountable road-
blocks."

Conch Key
fire victims
issue notice
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com


The insurer of a home where a
large fire started on Conch Key
Dec. 8 is not suing Monroe
County or the city of Marathon,
at least not for now.
Eileen Suarez, senior clams
Representative for American
Strategic Insurance Co., con-
Sfirmed to the Keynoter Friday
there has been no lawsuit filed
(and that the notice sent to the
S, county is standard procedure.
The notice was part of County
Attorney Suzanne Hutton's
report at Wednesday's commis-
sion meeting under the heading,
"potential cases that have not yet
been filed.".
The item was titled "ASI
Underwriting v. Monroe County
(Conch Key Fire Department)"
and is described as a "potential
tort or indemnification action due
to allegedly fire service deficien-
cies on Conch Key."
The actual notice is dated
March 28 and addressed to the
Conch Key Fire Department with
the address of 10 S. Conch Key,
Marathon, FL 33050. Conch Key
is in unincorporated Monroe
at County.
The notice is also addressed to

wells were completely dry."
The insured is listed as Joel
Paige, who, according to Monroe
County Sheriff's Office reports,
left a barbecue pit burning as he
left for Home Depot in Marathon.
Reports stated the house at 83
N. Conch Ave. quickly ignited,
and high winds spread the flames
next door to 93 N. Conch Ave.
Both homes were destroyed, and
two adjacent homes damaged.
The other affected property
owners are listed on the notice as
claimants, James Fulford (at 93
N. Conch Ave.), Joan Trimble
and William Wiatt.
Several neighboring residents
spoke critically of their perceived
slow response by firefighters.
However, the Sheriff's Office call
log states the two-person crew
from the Conch Key station
responded minutes after the 911
call was place at 6:21 p.m., and
crews from Marathon and
Islamorada arrived between 15
and 20 minutes later.

morning.
Joel Seppanan, 36, is charged
with failure to register as a felon,
battery on a law enforcement
officer, four counts aggravated
assault on a law enforcement
officer, criminal mischief, bur-
glary and resisting arrest with
violence.
According to spokeswoman
Becky Herrin, deputies Patricia
Garcia and Keith Albert were on
patrol at mile marker 106 at 2
a.m. when they spotted a door
open on a house they knew to be
vacant. The lights were on and
they could see someone inside,
so they approached, and yelled
for the man to come outside. He
refused, instead closing the door
and turning off the lights.
Herrin said a few minutes
later, he opened the front door
and pointed what the deputies
said looked like a handgun.
They retreated, taking and


site fire wells, and the fire wasn't
under control until an Islamorada
truck was able to pull water from
a canal about 7:30 p.m. The fire
was reported extinguished at 9:22
p.m.
Marathon City Attorney
Jimmy Morales said he was not
notified of any claim or lawsuit,
and questioned why the city was
even involved.
"Conch Key is in unincorpo-
rated Monroe County, so I'm not
sure why the city would have any
liability," he said.
Acting County Fire Chief Jim
Callahan wouldn't speak about
the merits of the claim, although
he said he is instituting more fre-
quent inspections and mainte-
nance of Keys fire. hydrants and
fire wells, which draw sea water
from underground.
"This particular fire was such
a magnitude, that before the first
truck got there the house was
completely engulfed," Callahan
said. "I'm not saying the two
houses destroyed isn't a terrible
thing, and it was. But we were
terribly lucky that it wasn't
worse."


deputies Robert Dosh, Ryan
Cowart and William Guerra
arrived as backup.
While the deputies were set-
ting up perimeter cover,
Seppanan snuck out the back
door of the house. At gunpoint,
the deputies ordered him out of
the bushes with his hands up,
Herrin said.
They heard eight loud pops
that sounded like small-arms fire
and continued to order Seppanan
out of the bushes.
The deputies saw he had
nothing in his hands, so they
swarmed him, taking him to the
ground. During the struggle,
Seppanan was tasered several
times and finally subdued. He
had a pill bottle full of firecrack-
ers; no gun was.
A check of his fingerprints
revealed he is designated as a
career criminal. A further check
revealed he is not registered as
such, as Florida law requires.

Hickory House on the block


Debate stirs
clash among
commissioners
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


The Monroe County Com-
mission voted unanimously to go
out for bid to sell a Stock Island
waterfront bar and restaurant it
bought just four months ago.
The $3.12 million purchase of
the Hickory House was part of
the county's attempt to preserve
waterfront parcels for public
access.
Soaring property values have
convinced many property own-
ers along the waterfront to con-
vert their holdings into housing,
and the county has taken a stance
to try to preserve commercial
fishing and other traditional uses
of the waterfront.
Last August, Commissioner
Dixie Spehar proposed buying
the Hickory House, saying it
would provide what could be the
last public access to the water on
Stock Island.
"We slowed down the conver-
sion and development," Spehar
said Wednesday during the
monthly County Commission
meeting in Key West. "The prop-
erty right now has the ability for


five [housing] units. If you go
for a [land]-plan change you can
have six."
"I have been an outspoken
critic [of buying the restaurant]
since the very beginning,"
Commissioner George Neugent
said. "I question the way the
[request for proposals] was
designed. To buy a piece of prop-
erty four months ago, then turn
around and put such restrictions
that it can only go to certain peo-
ple certainly bears the look of
impropriety."
The bid proposal requires the
buyer obtain the necessary per-
mits for clearing state-protected
mangroves from an old boat
ramp on the site.
The only way the requirement
can be avoided is if the bidder
owns property within half a mile
of the Hickory House that
already provides a ramp or pier.
That stipulation, Neugent said,
would limit who's qualified to
bid on the property to just the
owner of the parcel next door,
King's Pointe Marina.
The request for proposals
suggests the building be convert-
ed to a bait shop/convenience
store. It would allow construc-
tion of housing on the site, as
long as it includes five afford-
able units.


County Administrator Tom
Willi and Spehar told the com-
mission before the purchase that
there were up to 20 new slips
permitted for the site. Willi
noted, too, that income from the
restaurant and bar would help
offset the purchase price.
However, the county shut
down the operation when it took
possession of the property, fenc-
ing it off to ward off vandals and
vagrants.
The bid proposal does not set
a price, though County Attorney
Suzanne Hutton told the com-
missioners they are free to reject
all bids.
"One of the Realtors that was
here today says she has a buyer
who's interested," Spehar said.
"You stay it's stupid [to sell it]; I
want to ensure permanent public
access and get our money back."
"We're not in the business of
buying and selling property,"
Neugent said.
The entire Hickory House
discussion degenerated into an
argument among commissioners
about not only the restaurant, but
when and where it's appropriate
to speak about issues coming
before the board.
Commissioner Sonny McCoy
and Mayor Mario Di Gennaro
singled out Neugent for what
they called criticism of Spehar
through the media.

Assistant Manager Jones jailed


McPherson says
he'll use arrest
to fire Avael
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Key West Assistant City
Manager John Jones was
charged Friday with two mis-
demeanor counts of falsely
impersonating a certificate
holder.
Jones turned himself in and
was booked at the Monroe
County Detention Center and
was released later in the day.
Jones is accused of illegally
signing a temporary 90-day
certificate of occupancy for Pat
Croce's Rum Barrel bar and
restaurant on Feb. 3, 2006.
But the unfolding investiga-
tion revealed a new charge
stemming from an incident
Jan. 17, 2006, when Jones
signed a separate certificate
granting the state Department
of Children and Family.
Services trailers to serve as
offices. The agency's previous
offices were flooded by


Hurricane
Wilma, State
Attorney's
Office
spokesman
Matthew
Helmerich
said.
According
JONES to the arrest
affidavit,
Jones was not authorized to
sign either certificate. A certi-,
fied building official is the
only proper signer for such a
certificate.
A written statement from
Robyn Barineau, executive
director for building code
administrators in the state
Department of Business and
Professional Regulation,
appears in the arrest affidavit:
"A thorough search of the
board's official records per-
taining to John Hugh Jones
showed that he has not and
does not hold a license issued
by the Building Code
Administrators and Inspectors
Board," it reads.
"There's a lot of hype about


it," Jones said in a phone inter-
view Thursday. "If they don't
accept my data, then they do
what they have to do, but I
don't really care. I didn't do
anything wrong."
Jones filed his report to
BPR in February, describing in
his words what happened. He
was waiting to hear from the
State Attorney's Office before
publicly disclosing his reasons
for signing.
Jones disclosed his reasons
to the Keynoter Friday, reveal-
ing letters he sent to BPR
Regional Program Admin-
istrator Guillermo Tejeda.
Referring to the Rum Barrel
in the letter, Jones stated he
went over a checklist with
inspectors and the fire marshal
and "it was determined that the
building could be opened with
a temporary certificate of
occupancy without any safety
problems if marshals were
hired to be there when the
building was opened...."
Jones also wrote he
"received a call from Marc
Cerceo of Pirate Soul on Feb. 2
complaining that he had not
gotten his temporary certificate


of occupancy and he had to
have one by Feb. 1...." Pirate
Soul is a museum and part of
the Rum Barrel business.
Jones wrote he signed the
certificate so the restaurant
could have its opening Feb. 8.
Joe April, the building official
at the time, was out of town
when he signed the certificate.
April was also under inves-
tigation due to complaints that
he was obligated to inform the
state licensing authority of
Jones' action. The City
Commission authorized the
funding for April's legal repre-
sentation during its April 3
meeting.
Jones' arrest affidavit notes
that investigators questioned
April, who refused to sign the
certificate. He said, according
to the affidavit, the "restau-
rant's construction was not
completed and that several
inspections (including electri-
cal, FEMA, flood panels, ele-
vators, etc.) were yet to be per-
formed as final."
April also confirmed that
the temporary certificate for
the Rum Barrel expired, leav-
ing. the facility without a
license for "several months."
April is now director of
engineering.
In the wake of Jones' arrest,
Mayor Morgan McPherson
hopes he might have a little
ammo in his quest to fire Avael
because of allegations that he
coerced Jones to sign the cer-
tificate. Avael is slated for
retirement in November.
"If he told his subordinates
to do something and they did
it, and they're arrested, then I
think he should be held
accountable for it," McPherson
said.
McPherson plans to write a
resolution for the May 1 City
Commission meeting calling
for termination of Avael's con-
tract with cause.
Helmerich said "we have no
evidence Julio Avael has com-
mitted a crime."
BPR's findings would suf-
fice in justifying disciplinary
action against Avael, said
McPherson, who will move for
immediate termination.
Under McPherson's desired
circumstances, the city would
keep the $71,423 of Avael's
severance pay plus a year's
worth of his health insurance
benefits, $7,872.

'Vandenberg' cleansing


under way in Virginia


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


As the USS Vandenberg,
poised to become the second
largest ship ever intentionally
scuttled as an artificial reef, inch-
es closer to the day it will be sunk
to 144 feet down seven miles off
Key West, managers of the 10-
year project are glowing with
excitement.
The vessel has been towed
from the James River in Newport
News, Va., to a shipyard in
Norfolk, Va., where it is being
prepared for scuttling by having
contaminants removed and such.
At a presentation Tuesday
night at the Florida Keys Eco-
Discovery Center at the Truman
Waterfront, representatives of
Artificial Reefs of the Keys and
both county Mayor Mario Di
Gennaro and Key West Mayor
Morgan McPherson spoke with
similar tinges of optimism about
the project.
"There'll be nothing else like
it in the world," project manager
Joe Weatherby said.
"What you [Reefmakers] are
doing is creating a new ecosys-
tem," Di Gennaro said. "You're
saving our reefs, you're increas-
ing our tourism."
Reefmakers is the contractor
that will do the actual scuttling
for Artificial Reefs of the Keys.
The presentation included a
video of the vessel being towed
to the Norfolk shipyard, in which
historian Sheri Lohr, who's been
working on the project for 10
years, stood before the vessel and
gave background information on
the ship.
Lohr said the 520-foot former
military vessel was known as the
USS Gen. Harry Taylor in 1944,
at which point it transported
troops. The ship served in World
War II and other conflicts.
The ship was recommissioned
in the name of Gen. Hoyt Sanford
Vandenberg, a founding father of
the U.S. Air Force, in 1963.
Besides its rich history, the
attraction will bring prosperity to
Key West's tourism industry by
attracting divers and snorkelers,
meaning more bed taxes collect-
ed and more dive-industry jobs
created, Weatherby said.
The site will also serve as a
reef research spot for Florida


Keys Community College.
The project might be complet-
ed earlier than expected, some-
time between Jan. 1 and May 30
of next year, project managers
say.
The total cost of the project is
$5.7 million, an effort that took
the help of the city, Monroe
County, county Tourist Develop-
ment Council, U.S. Maritime
Administration, Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission, National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration, and
local banks.
The Florida Legislature is
considering a bill this session that


would designate $10 million
annually toward funding artificial
reefs. The city and participants
hope for reimbursement if the bill
passes.
The largest ship sunk as an
artificial reef is the 910-foot
retired aircraft carrier Oriskany,
scuttled May 17, 2006, about 24
miles off Pensacola.
The top of the super-structure
can be approached at 67 feet. The
flight deck sits at 137 feet.
The 510-foot Spiegel Grove, a
former Navy transport ship, was
sunk in 2002 in 134 feet of water
near Dixie Shoals off Key Largo.
The depth at the highest point of
the ship is 60 to 65 feet, depend-
ing on the tide level.


Key West teen center


gets one more year


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


The Monroe County
Commission on Wednesday
approved a one-year extension on
a lease for the Boys and Girls
Club teen center on South
Roosevelt Boulevard in Key
West, but county officials want to
find a better location.
"We've had mixed success
with the teen center," Boys and
Girls Club Director Dan
Dombroski told the commission.
"We've had several dances there,
but there are times we under-use
it. The idea of a center just for
teens is a real missing part of the
network we need for children in
this community."
A 10-year lease under which
the county paid Key West
International Airport $56,400 a
year for the space expires at the
beginning of May. Airport
Director Peter Horton suggested
extending the lease to allow time
to find a better location for the
center.
"The needs of the airport have
outgrown the needs of the Boys
and Girls Club at this location,"
he said. "We could easily triple
the rent there by putting in an air-
port-appropriate use."
"It's an old tired building,"
Dombroski said. "For us to con-


tinue using it in partnership with
the county, it would take some
revision, it would take some
money."
"I think we've underutilized
the program significantly,"
County Administrator Tom Willi
said. "The lease, the burden of
the building, has crippled the pro-
gram. We need to grow this pro-
gram."
The structure, built in 1968,
sustained damage from
Hurricane Wilma in 2005.
"I think it's served its pur-
pose," Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy said. "It's lived its life,
but I'd like to see it put into a
place that is convenient."
The majority of the Boys and
Girls Club services are provided
at a second location at Bayview
Park in Key West. The teen cen-
ter is less accessible to kids pri-
marily because it's separated
from residential neighborhoods
by the Salt Ponds and airport.
Over the years, Dombroski
said, the club has offered the
space to other organizations free
of charge.
"The [Monroe Association of
Retarded Citizens] uses it for par-
ties," he said. "The high school
uses it free of cost."

Corps considers water plan


Drought could
mean dips into
conservation
Associated Press

To counteract a worsening
drought in South Florida, the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
has considered taking water from
conservation areas to prevent
saltwater from damaging wells
on the east coast, Gov. Charlie
Crist learned in a briefing
Monday.
Taking water from the
region's three conservation areas,
which could harm wildlife such
as fish and endangered species of
birds, may be necessary because
of the extremely low water level
in Lake Okeechobee which is
usually the backup water source
in South Florida.
But Crist and other officials


said dipping into those conserva-
tion areas, which are the rem-
nants of the Everglades, would be
a last-ditch effort to provide the
public with drinking water. The
state requested earlier this year
that the Corps look into allowing
water out of the conservation
areas.
"We will exhaust any and all
avenues, including Draconian
water restrictions, before asking
for that water," said Carol Wehle,
director of the South Florida
Water Management District.
If water was taken from the
conservation areas, Wehle said, it
could not be used for irrigation.
Agriculture accounts for 52 per-
cent of water demand in South
Florida, while 37 percent is used
by the public.
Florida received 5.88 inches
of rainfall during the first three
months of the year, more than


four inches below normal,
according to the state Department
of Environmental Protection.
Lake Okeechobee is currently
at a level of 10.08 feet, the lowest
elevation ever recorded in April.
Officials are concerned the lake
could eclipse its 2001 record low
of 8.9 feet if drought patterns
continue.
Officials' greatest concern is
the potential for saltwater from
the Atlantic Ocean to seep into
the water wells close to the state's
eastern coast. If that happens,
those wells could be unusable for
as long as 10 years, the amount of
time it could take for fresh water
to dilute the salt water.
In dangerous drought condi-
tions, the canals that fill the wells
with water become too low.
When that fresh water isn't being
pushed into the wells, it can allow
salt water to seep in from the east.
The Corps is constantly moni-
toring the salt level in the wells


and can move quickly to allow
water out of the conservation
areas if needed, Col. Paul
Grosskruger, the Jacksonville
district commander, said during
Monday's briefing.
For now, Crist stressed the
importance of water restrictions
and public conservation efforts.
Water restrictions are in place
for the 16 counties in the South
Florida Water Management
District, including Monroe.
The drought has also cast
scrutiny on South Florida's low
usage of treated, or reclaimed,
wastewater, which the state
Department of Environmental
Protection attributed to the
cheapness and abundance of
water the past 50 years.
Major statewide or regional
droughts occurred in the early
1970s, early 80s, 1989-1990, and
1999-2001, with 2000 being the
driest year on record in the South
Florida district.


Deputies targeting
crimes against seniors

The Monroe County
Sheriff's Office is looking for
volunteers to help start a new
crime prevention program.
Called Seniors vs. Crime,
the goal of the program is to
reduce the victimization of
senior citizens.
Seniors vs. Crime uses vol-
unteers who provide educa-
tional programs in crime pre-
vention to senior groups,
investigate complaints by sen-
iors and help senior crime vic-
tims seek restitution.
Volunteers participate in
two free days of instruction
and spend time each week
manning desks at Sheriff's
Office substations.
Deputy Emil LaVache is
coordinating the program. He
can be reached at 292-7116 or
elavache@keysso.net.

Dolphin Safari recognized


Charter business
joins program to
protect porpoises

The National Oceanographic
and Atmospheric Administra-
tion's Florida Keys National
Marine Sanctuary and its part-
ners this week recognized the
first charter operator under a
new program designed to pro-
tect wild dolphins.
Key West's Dolphin Safari
Charters officially joined the
Dolphin SMART program after
successfully meeting standards
that promote responsible view-
ing of wild dolphins.


"We're pleased to welcome
Dolphin Safari Charters as the
first participant in what we hope
will become a popular and suc-
cessful program to promote sus-
tainable dolphin watch tour-
ism," said sanctuary Super-
intendent Dave Score. "Dolphin
SMART represents a positive
approach to protecting wild dol-
phins by working in partnership
with the businesses that depend
on them."
Sanctuary staff worked with
NOAA Fisheries Service, the
Whale and Dolphin Conser-
vation Society and the Dolphin
Ecology Project to establish the


program, which is funded by
NOAA Fisheries and the
"Protect Wild Dolphins" license
plate funds through the Harbor
Branch Oceanographic Institu-
tion.
The acronym "SMART" is a
reminder of the basic principles
of dolphin viewing etiquette:
Stay at least 50 yards from
dolphins.
Move away slowly if the
dolphins show signs of distur-
bance.
Always put your vessel
engine in neutral when dolphins
are near:
Refrain from feeding,

Moir leaving chamber post


But she plans to
remain active
in Keys community
By STEVE SANOSKI
Keys Sunday reporter
ssanoski@keynoter.com

After nearly two years as
executive director of the Greater
Marathon Chamber of
Commerce during which
membership grew by 65 percent
- Audrey Moir is leaving her
post.
Chamber President Stacie
Kidwell said the search for a
new executive director has been


launched and advertised.
Applications were collected
through April 15, and a new
director is expected to be in
place in early May.
"We would have liked to
keep Audrey forever she did
a great job, and we're really
going to miss her," Kidwell
said.
Moir said the untimely and
unexpected death of a close
friend recently 4ed her to re-
evaluate her own priorities in
life.
"There's all these things I've
always wanted to do in life that
I haven't had time for because


I've always worked," she said.
"I've had a tremendous career,
and I just feel it's finally time to
take a step back and do the
things I haven't had time for."
"Although she initially
requested, and was approved, to
put in fewer hours for the cham-
ber, Moir said she ultimately felt
she could not serve the cham-
ber's members and board ade-
quately if she wasn't giving the
position her full attention.
"The fact is it may have
worked well for me, but it
wouldn't have been fair to the
chamber," she said. "It's a full-
time position, and it requires a

Chamber membership has
expanded by leaps and bounds
under Moir's leadership from
260 to 429 members in just 16
months.
Moir is also proud of seeing
through the redesigning of the
chamber's Web site, which now
receives more than 1 million
hits per year, and playing a
major role in recruiting com-
mercial airline service back to
Florida Keys Marathon Airport
earlier this year.
"The one area I would have
personally gotten involved with
had I stayed on would have been
establishing an economic devel-
opment committee for our com-
munity, and I really hope some-
one will pick up that ball," Moir
said. "But, really, the chamber is
in an excellent position right
now, financially and member-
ship wise, and I'm confident it


will only grow from here."
Moir plans to spend summers
at her Connecticut home -
birding and attempting to devel-
op a green thumb and winter
at her Grassy Key home. Her
husband, Bob, will remain in the
Keys and work alongside their
son, Robert, at the family's three
hotels in the Middle Keys.
The Moirs recently pur-
chased Grassy Key Beach
Motel, and have renamed it
Casa Del Sol Beach Resort. The
fainily has also owned and oper-
ated the Bonefish Resort and
Yellowtail Inn for years.
Asked if people will see her
working at her family's three
businesses when she returns in
the fall, Moir burst in laugher.
"Are you crazy?" she asked.
"No, I'm happy to leave that to
my husband and son. I'll still be
around town, though, I plan to
stay involved with the chamber
and I'll probably become a
pretty proficient gardener."

VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION: Bayshore Manor, a Monroe County Social Services
assisted-living facility on Stock Island, recently honored its volunteers with a turkey dinner
donated by the Pier House and organized by Administrator Susan Scarlet. In addition to its
residential program, Bayshore Manor has a program for families whose elders require
non-medical daytime supervision. For further information, call Scarlet at 292-4533 or
294-4966.



THE FUNDAMENTALS

OF HOME APPRAISAL
A home appraisal is an "opinion of value" conducted by a licensed professional to estimate the
worth of a property. Appraisals are usually ordered by the buyer's lending agency, but can also
be requested by a seller who wants to determine a reasonable asking price of a home.
An appraiser uses three common methods to determine the value of a home. The "Cost
Approach" to value adds the cost of improvements made on the home to the property value of
the land, minus any physical deterioration and functional or economic obsolescence. The
"Comparison Approach" to value compares the subject property (the one being appraised) to the
other nearby properties of similar size and quality that have recently sold. The "Income
Approach" is used for income-producing properties (as opposed to residential properties), and
takes into account the yearly net income an investment property will produce.
Most appraisers of residential homes evaluate the condition and amenities of the property against
other home of comparable size in the neighborhood. If repairs are needed or code violations
exist, they subtract these from the.value of the home. All factors are tallied and a final "opinion
of value" is given in the form of a certified appraisal.
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.

online photo exhibit


McDonald's work
memorializes the
Southernmost City
The state Library and
Archives of Florida has created
a new online photographic
exhibit titled "Key West: The
Dale McDonald Exhibit" in cel-
ebration of Florida Heritage
Month, which was March 15 to
April 15.
The exhibit contains select-
ed images from the Dale M.
McDonald Collection docu-
menting community events,.
businesses, attractions, land-
scapes, residences, and street
scenes in Key West. It can be
found on the Florida Memory
Project site at www.flori
damemory.com/Photograp
hicCollectionl.
"Dale McDonald is an
archivist's dream come true,"
Secretary of State Kurt S.
Browning said. "In a time when
the face of Florida changes so
rapidly, archivists rely on the
contributions of our citizens to
assist with the collection of
images and documents. Every
Floridian interested in the
state's history owes Dale
McDonald a huge debt of grati-
tude."
Using his own equipment
and supplies, McDonald has
documented significant places
and events in Florida, including


landscapes, architecture,
celebrity appearances and hur-
ricanes. While his collection
primarily focuses on Key West
in the past decade, it also
includes such rare images as the
Beatles visiting the Key Wester
Motel in 1964 when the band
was delayed by Hurricane Dora
en route to a Jacksonville con-
cert.
Mirroring developments
throughout the state, his images
document the economic devel-
opment and environmental
changes in Key West during the
late 20th century.
McDonald, a Key West
native, began taking photo-
graphs in high school before
enlisting in the U.S. Air Force.
McDonald left the Air Force in
1972 and returned to Key West,
where he began a career as a
firefighter with the Naval Air
Station. He became an assistant
fire chief in 1987.
With the help of his wife
Ann, McDonald opened a pho-
tography studio, Keys
Photographic Services, in 1993.
After his wife's death in 2001,
McDonald closed his photogra-
phy business and retired from
the fire service but continues to
take photographs for documen-
tation and archival purposes.
Since 2003, McDonald has
donated more than 5,000
images to the state archives.

Ex-addict shares problems


By CANDICE CASTLE
Keynoter Contributor


Teenagers may wonder if the
"gangsta" life is for them, but one
man has made it his mission to
show young people that's a bad
road to go down.
Hari Tiefer presented exam-
ples of his life to demonstrate the
downside of a life of hard party-
ing and lawless behavior during a
recent program at the PACE
Center for Girls in Tavernier as
part of the center's drug- and


alcohol-abuse prevention pro-
gramming.
The Keys man is a former
addict and con man, now a
Christian, who lives in his van
and helps the homeless and
addicted. He talks to kids when-
ever he gets the chance about
avoiding substance abuse and
getting help for mental-health
issues.
Not the typical guest speaker
on drug and alcohol prevention,
Tiefer lived the life of the addict
through an increasing dependen-
cy on cocaine, alcohol and gam-
bling.
As a young man from a wealth
family, Tiefer would be arrested
for drugs and other illegal activi-
ties, but his family was always
able to get him cleared.
PACE Center student Ana
Capote came away with this les-
son: "Choose your decisions
wisely because one bad decision
after another can ruin your life."
While his purpose is to help
students stay away from drugs
and stay in school, Tiefer says
speaking to students and the hugs


they give him are healing to him.
The PACE Center for Girls is
an alternative program for girls
ages 12 to 18 who are experienc-
ing difficulty or conflict at school
and home.

Clooney

tribute

Sunday

Johnson revives
'Tenderly' at
Key West church
Singer Maj Johnson will
revive her tribute show
"Tenderly, a Tribute to
Rosemary Clooney" Sunday
at 8 p.m. as part of the Old
Stone Concert Series at the
Key West United Methodist
Church.
Johnson received a grant
from the Anne McKee Artist's
Fund to develop the show
about one of the most cele-
brated female singers of the
20th century. It played to a
packed house New Year's Eve
at the Tennessee Williams
Theatre.
"Rosemary was such a gen-
uine person," Johnson said.
"So rather than try to act like
Rosemary Clooney, I felt the
best tribute would be to tell
her life's story through the
songs that she made popular.
And I am so fortunate to be
working again with Southern-
most Brass."
Members of the
Southernmost Brass include
Mike Emerson, Harry
Schroeder, Tim McAlpine,
Donna Dallas, Melody
Cooper, Les Dudley, Dave
Parker and Ken Fradley.
The concert begins at 8
p.m. at the Key West United
Methodist Church at Eaton
and Simonton streets.
Suggested donation is $20.
Tickets are available at
MacArthur Music and will be
sold at the door.

Lady Conchs: Champs!


Home regional
starts Tuesday
with McCarthy
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


Key West softball had never
seen such a glorious night.
After more than two emotion-
ally charged hours, before a
crowd astonishing in size and
volume, the high school team
won a district title for the first
time by defeating a longtime
Miami nemesis.
Wednesday's 6-1 victory over
Monsignor Pace made the
Conchs District 16-4A champi-
ons and ensured them of another
first a home regional tourna-
ment game at 7 p.m. Tuesday
against Archbishop McCarthy of
Fort Lauderdale.
It was the second triumph in
two days for Key West, which
had downed St. Brendan, 15-5,
in the semifinal game Tuesday
afternoon.
That contest drew a good
crowd, but nothing like
Wednesday evening's turnout of
about 150 fans that gave the
quaint Back Yard ballpark the
big-time feel that new coach

Softball team

By DAVID BALL

A District 16-2A champi-
onship just wasn't in the cards
for the Marathon High School
softball team, as it ran into
Westminster Christian's pow-
erhouse pitcher Kat Powell
and a 5-0 loss in Miami
Thursday.
Still, the Dolphins will
enter the Region 2A tourna-
ment as district runners-up
after a 5-3 win over Palmer
Trinity Tuesday, and coach
Jason Frank said that may be


the best thing the Dolphins
could've hoped for.
"If we win [over
Westminster], then we host the
first round of regionals at
home," Frank said. "I don't
know that plays in our favor
with our short fence. We'll
probably be better off on the
road."
This season, the softball
team played all home games at
the truncated field at Stanley
Switlik Elementary School.

Eagles enter playoffs Monday


Izaguirre
tosses 1-hitter
in a tune-up
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The state Class A baseball
playoffs start Monday for Island
Christian School's Eagles.
A 4 p.m. game in Islamorada
against Champagnat Catholic of
Hialeah actually is the District
16-A Tournament semifinal, but


the winner earns a spot in next
week's regional playoffs.
Also on tap for the winner will
be a 4 p.m. Friday district cham-
pionship game in Islamorada
against Brito Private, the defend-
ing state Class A champion. Both
teams in the final move on to the
regionals.
"We're feeling pretty good,"
ICS coach Tony Hammon said.
"If we get by Champagnat, we
have a real chance to move on."
Last year, Island Christian fin-
ished as district runner-up and


reached the state regional semifi-
nals for the first time in Eagle
baseball history.
Island Christian tuned up for
Monday's tournament game at
the ICS campus with Tuesday's
16-0 shelling of Florida Bible.
Aaron Izaguirre threw a one-
hitter in the shutout, with 11
strikeouts. He is expected to start
Monday in the district tourna-
ment game.
At the plate, Aaron one of
four Izaguirre brothers starting
for the Eagles slugged two
doubles and a home run, and had
a bunt single. He scored three


runs.
"That's the definition of an
amazing day," Hammon said.
"Florida Bible had some well-hit
balls but our guys were there to
make the catches."
Matthew Izaguirre had a
triple, double and two singles.
Tim Globus had two hits and
three runs scored, while Phillip
Izaguirre had two hits and scored
each time.
Results of Friday's regular-
season finale against a more for-
midable foe in Class 3A
Archbishop Carroll were not
available at press time.

Offense sparks Canes to win


CANES / From 34

rivals earlier this week gave the
Coral Shores Hurricanes four
wins in a five-game stretch
through the late season.
Only a 9-3 loss at Class 4A
contender Key West High School
(13-8) April 13 marred the run.
Results of road games earlier this
week against Pine Crest and
Spanish River were not available
at press time.
"We showed we can play with
Key West," assistant coach Jorge
Bosque said. "We were in the
game until we hit a bad defensive
inning and let it get away from
us."
The Hurricanes rebounded
Tuesday with a 13-7 win over
Marathon High School (5-10).
Junior Stephen Fowler went
3-for-4 getting two hits during
a seven-run rally in the fourth
inning and earned the pitch-
ing decision for three innings of
middle relief.
The Dolphins jumped out to a
4-0 lead after two innings.
Three walks in the first by
Cane starter Mike Rentz loaded
the bags for an RBI grounder by
Chris Garrett and an RBI single
by Toby Eigner. Coral Shores
catcher Lee Cash picked off a
runner to get out of the inning.
The Dolphins mounted a two-
out, two-run rally in the second,
J.P. McCabe driving in both
scores with a double.
"Marathon came out and
jumped on us," Meyers said. "It's
to our kids' credit that they dug in
and came back."
Meyers commended Dolphin
starter Eigner for his work in

shutting down the Canes in the
early innings.
"He's one of the hardest
throwers our guys see," Meyers
said. "They respect him."
The Canes started catching up
with two runs in the third, off sin-
gles by Ryan Biondoletti,
Raymond Ferro and Cash.
Coral Shores batted around in
the fourth, scoring seven runs off
six hits. Fowler had a leadoff sin-
gle and came to the plate a second
time to single again. Chris Noble
doubled during the outburst.
Ferro (3-of-4) stroked a two-
run double in the fifth during a


four-run rally started by Brett
Smith's single. Smith and
Biondoletti each had two of the
Canes' 13 hits in the contest.
A single by Marathon out-
fielder Jake Sjursen started a
three-run rally in the sixth. Sean
O'Connor's RBI single com-
bined with a walk and a Cane
error to close out the Dolphin
scoring.
Closer Alex Nobregas put the
Dolphins down in order in the
seventh with two popups and a
strikeout.
O'Connor went 2-for-2 in
Marathon's seven-hit offense.

Baseball Dolphins prep for district battles


Marathon needs
one win for
regional berth
B~ DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

Marathon High School base-
ball coach Luis Leal is hardly
thinking about a possible District
16-2A championship game
against Westminster Christian
this week.
First, the Dolphins need to win
a very evenly matched first-round
game against Palmer Trinity at 4
p.m. Tuesday in Miami.
With the win, the Dolphins,
after a tough 3-11 season, would
b'e guaranteed a spot in the
regional tournament.


"That would be very huge,"
Leal said. "We haven't been to
regionals in the four years I've
been here. That's what we are
shooting for."
Marathon will have to
rebound from a 13-7 loss to Coral
Shores Tuesday to end the regular
season, although Leal said he had
one player sick during the game
and another hurt, causing a shift
in the lineup and infield.
"We hit the ball well, and we
pitched well," Leal said.
"Everybody should be ready to
go when districts start."
Leal said Palmer has also
struggled this season with only
three wins. Although Palmer got
the best of Marathon earlier in the
regular season, Leal said he does-


n't expect that to happen again. -
"Even their coach said that
was out of character for them,
that they hit the ball really well,"
Leal said. "We're abetter team
now. We've been hitting the ball
well and improving defensively."
Defense has been a sore spot
for the Dolphins this season, with
inconsistent fielding hurting the
strong performances from No. 1
pitcher Toby Eigner.


Eigner (3-3) had an ERA of
2.80 through six games during
the regular season.
Offensively, Marathon has
been led this year, as last year, by
Junior Sean O'Connor, who
through 12 games amassed a
team-leading .649 slugging per-
centage.
His .432 batting average was
topped only by fellow Dolphin
slugger J.P. McCabe at .457.


Leal said those two, along
with Chris Garret, Jay Hegland
and Eigner at the top of the order,
need to continue to produce if the
Dolphins want to get past Palmer,
and especially Westminster for a
district championship.
"Obviously, a win would be
huge against Westminster, and it
would give us a chance to host
the first round of regionals in
Marathon," Leal said.

Christian (7-9) won the District
15-2A title with an 11-1 win
over runner-up Miami
Christian.
Frank said with the Dolphins
(10-7) playing the way they are
right now, a regional champi-
onship rematch against
Westminster is possible.
"I feel like the way we are
playing, it's going to take some-
one like Kat Powell to shut us
down, and we don't see too
many pitchers like that," Franks
said.
Powell, a junior, showed
why she is one of the more
dominant softball players in
South Florida on Thursday.
Along with throwing a one-
hit shutout thanks to a pitch that
"looks like a strike, but then it
comes up out of the strike
zone," Frank said, Powell went
3-for-3 with an RBI at the plate.
The Dolphins kept up with
Powell for the most part, but
hits were sent right back to
infielders for quick outs. The
only Marathon hit came by
Sandahl Stephens in the sev-
enth inning.
Marathon pitcher Megan
Gardner pitched shutout ball
herself through the first three
innings, but allowed three runs
in the fourth and two more in
the fifth. She had two strikeouts
and gave up seven hits.
Frank then brought in junior
varsity pitcher Ali Heller, who
got Marathon out of the final
inning with no more runs.
Many Marathon players
have been battling the flu, but
Frank said the team should be
close to 100 percent by region-
als.
"There's a lot less tissue in
the dugout now," Frank said.
"It's been a drain on them, but
they have played through it, and
they deserve credit for that."

Henriquez blasts homer, makes save


CHAMPIONS / From 34

Pace, all in red, fired up and
with its own rooting contingent,
took the field in the 7 p.m. sun as
the "home" team, having won a
coin flip to determine top seed.
The teams had split two regular-
season games and tied for first
place.
The Spartans scored first for a
1-0 lead in the third inning, and
their pitcher, Brenda Emerson,
looked sharp. She smilingly
breezed through the first three
and two-thirds innings.
But then Lauren Wells and
Trish Wise singled and were on
third and second base, respec-
tively, when pitcher Lindsay
Yochum came to the plate.
Yochum lined a single to cen-
ter, scoring two runs, wiping off
Emerson's smile and sending the
fans into a frenzy.
The Conchs led, 2-1. Dusk
gave way to night. Pace wouldn't
recover.
In the fifth, senior Ashley
Henriquez drove an Emerson
pitch toward center, the yellow
ball suspended high against the


black sky before dropping over
the fence for a home run. She
toured the bases and jumped on
the plate as a mob of teammates
congratulated her.
On defense, Henriquez, who
roamed center field with a lop-
ing, long-gaited grace, also made
the play of the night. After
retrieving a line drive that had
rolled to the fence, she unleashed
a long throw that reached third
baseman Kayla Reams on the fly.
Reams tagged a sliding
Emerson, who had been on first
base.
Henriquez sprinted off the
field to another ovation. "I make
that throw at least 20 times every
day in practice," she said later.
The Conchs added a run in the
sixth when Kristen Babich led off
with a hard double and later
scored on an error by the catcher.
The final runs scored in the
seventh on a single by Babich
after Heather Palladino's bunt
single had put two Conchs in
scoring position.
Yochum, an unflappable
sophomore who has pitched in
almost all of the team's 28
games, allowed only three hits


and, backed by a sure-handed
defense, retired the final six bat-
ters, the last on a fly ball that
Babich caught in left field.
That touched off a celebration
that continued as schools
Superintendent Randy Acevedo
presented the championship tro-
phy. He held it high as the 16-12
Conchs looked up, their smiles
gleaming beneath the white
lights.
"It was wonderful to see all
the fans," Gootee said. "A great
plus for us."
A longtime local hair stylist
who took over the team with a
philosophy of hard work.
Extended practices and pre-game
prayer, he walked over to shake
hands with Ralph Henriquez,
Ashley's father and a member of
the New York Yankees organiza-
tion who helped out with the
Conchs this spring.
Gootee then walked back to
the dugout where he was doused
with a cooler of ice water.
In the dim grandstand area,
the fans still milled around,
reluctant to leave now that the
Lady Conchs had become the
talk of the town.

needed to capture the $25,000
winner-take-all grand prize at
the Islamorada Fishing Club's
Captain's Cup Dolphin

The only catch is that the

sentative at Caloosa Cove
Marina, Bud 'N' Mary's

,,P,
F, wd ~ V.


The Lady Dolphins' JV went a perfect 12-0 this season. The perfect year was due to clutch
hitting, sharp pitching and solid defense.



JV Lady Fins play perfectly


Softball team
finishes 12-0
The junior-varsity Lady
Dolphins of Marathon High
School has ended a spectacular
season, finishing 12-0 and giv-
ing the varsity a good footing
with a solid future roster.
The Lady Fins JV started its
journey by traveling to Key
West to play the Conchs, a team
no Marathon High School squad
has been able to beat since going
to fast-pitch. They jumped on
the Lady Conchs early and
never looked back the rest of the
season.
In fact, they trailed only two
times the whole season.
The team consisted of four
ninth-graders, eight eighth-
graders and two seventh-
graders.
Pitching was a key compo-
nent to the success.
Three players pitched a total
of 67 innings, giving up only
nine earned runs. Alli Heller (6-
0) and Michelle Sardina (5-0)
each pitched no-hitters while
Layne Doyle came in relief for a
save and also started one game
for a win.
The staff had an earned run
average of 0.94, giving up only
31 hits and striking out 109 bat-
ters.
The offense contributed as
much as the pitching.
As a team, the Fins batted at


a stunning .456 average. There
were five batters over .500 and
they outscored the opposition
175-41.
Leading the team in average
and stolen bases, Michelle
Sardina (.625, 37 SBs) was
complemented by a stable of
sluggers such as Michelle
McKenna (.538, .767 slugging
percentage), Alyssa Perry (.463,
20 runs batted in), Layne Doyle
(.531, .780 on-base percentage),
Samantha Rodamer (.486, 18
RBI) and Alli Heller (17 RBIs,
30 SBs).
Seventh-grader Haylie Heller
got considerable playing time
along with ninth-grader Melissa
McCabe, a key pinch-hitter, to
enhance the offense.
Solid defense on the right
side of the field and behind the
plate made it easy on the pitch-
ers.
Most opponents hit to
Patricia Bologna at second base
or Megan McKenna at first,
with both going almost error-
free. Behind the plate, the Lady
Fins primarily used two catch-
ers, Rodamer and Alli Heller,
both of whom regularly tossed
out would-be base stealers.
Coach Tom Bottomley said,
"The difference this year is
these girls have confidence in
themselves and remained
focused every game. Coach
Dave Perry's work with the bat-


ters and their discipline this sea-
son may have been our biggest
improvement, but the pitchers
baffled the opposing hitters and
the-defense did its job."

20-pound test.
Tarpon must measure at
least 48 inches in length to
earn release points. To earn
weight points, a tarpon must
weigh at least 70 pounds. A
chart converting girth in inch-
es to pounds has been estab-
lished by the tournament
organizers to calculate weight
points. Measuring straps will
be supplied and must be used
exclusively.
Anglers can enter a maxi-
mum of five fish for weight


points.
All fish must be released
alive. A tarpon with a girth
exceeding 42 inches can be
brought to shore for weighing
because a fish that size might
qualify for a new world record.
The awards banquet is set
for 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the
Outback Steakhouse, mile
marker 80 oceanside.
Entry fee is $1,000 per
angler. For more information,

Knits Wits: calm, cool and collected


Keys circle may
be onto something,
studies show

A group of girls and
women sit around a large
round wooden table
chatting and knitting. They
laugh and tease each other,
complain, cajole and praise in
the spacious calm between two
banks of luxurious yarns and
ribbons.
Knit Wits just celebrated its
first year as the only knit shop
in the Keys. Four former snow-
birds first bonded as a close-knit
group of pals. Laurie Levy,
Debbie Schlein, Maxine
Makeover and Phyllis Gagner
evolved into full-time residents
and now successful business
owners.
They had knitting in com-
mon and pretty soon they had a
cozy shop on Whitehead Street
where locals, cruise ship visi-
tors, tourists and snowbird
women hang out talking yarns
and stitches and life. It's as
much about social therapy as it
is about needles.
When I dropped in last week,
four girls in the PACE -
Practical, Academic and
Cultural Education program
were arriving for a knitting
class. Working on colorful
scarves in quirky modem yams,
the age differences between the
teenagers and the retirement-age
instructors vanished.
"It's therapeutic for women,"
Levy said later, adding with a
chuckle, "Someone said knitting


Ais the new
Prozac.
Sometimes

"You're
talking and
knitting
Judi Bradford and con-
centrating.
It's a relaxing feeling. You kind
of get lost in it. Of course, it's
creative, too."
Recent scientific studies
uphold that observation. Alice
D. Domar, director of the
Mind/Body Center for Women's
Health at Boston IVF Fertility
Clinic, is quoted in a RedBook
article: "Repetitive tasks, such
as knitting, require concentra-
tion, which means your
thoughts are focused on the task
and not on your worries. These
activities have an almost hyp-
notic effect, which can be very
soothing."
A clinical study commis-
sioned by the Home Sewing
Association established that
sewing, the close stitchery sister
to knitting and crocheting, low-
ers women's blood pressure,
heart rate and perspiration rate,
considered the three key factors
in measuring stress.
The study compared physical
reactions in women involved in
five pastimes playing cards,
painting at an easel, reading a
newspaper, playing a hand-held
video game and sewing.

"The study appears to indi-

relaxing of the five activities,"
said Robert H. Reiner, a facul-
ty member in the Department of
Psychiatry at New York
University Medical Center, in a
summary of the study. "The
importance of a hobby or cre-
ative pursuit cannot be over-
emphasized."
The women of-the shop are
devoted to women's causes, too.
Makeover got involved with the
PACE Center for teenage girls
through her membership in the
Key West Women's Club and
offered classes for the young
women.

Gallo legacy includes fine wines


Italian brothers
known for more
than cheap stuff
E rnest Gallo died March 6,
just two weeks before his
m98th birthday. Gallo, who
pioneered the modem wine
industry, will probably be
remembered by too many peo-
ple for producing distinctly low-
brow jug wines.


Bob Serata


Many a
connois-
seur of
fine wine
sipped
Gallo
Hearty
Burgundy
before
moving up
to Petrus
or La
Tache. Not
a few of


today's wine snobs spent some
of their youth passing a bottle
of Boone's Farm Apple Wine
while listening to the Lovin'
Spoonful. Poor neighborhoods
in the big cities of the industrial
northeast were awash in high-
alcohol-content Thunderbird
Wine, joined today by Night
Train Express.
But the Gallo legacy
includes some of the finest
wines coming out of Sonoma
and Napa Counties, along with
a handful of fine imports. The
world's second largest wine
company it was the largest
until Constellation Brands
bought the Robert Mondavi
Winery in 2004 for $1.36 bil-
lion Gallo sells more than 70
million cases of wine some 90
countries. Sixty million of those
cases are sold in the U.S., mak-
ing Gallo the largest winery in
the nation.
The Gallo operation markets
about 40 brands (or "labels") of
wine, starting with low-priced
offerings like Carlo Rossi and
Livingston Cellars wines. In
restaurants, you might find
Liberty Creek or Copperidge on
the wine list.
Carlo Rossi was the second
best selling brand of wine in the
U.S. during the 1970s, even
though there was no such per-
son (actually, there was a Carlo
di Giovanni Rossi, a Russian
architect of Italian origin, who
in the early 1800s designed
many of the buildings in St.
Petersburg). The brand was
named after Charlie Rossi, a
Gallo salesman and in-law.
Charlie starred in the Carlo
Rossi TV commercials in the
1970s.
Gallo's mid-priced labels
include Turning Leaf and


HE'S THAT ATTACHED
TO HIS BOAT?


Ernest Gallo and his late brother, Julio, grew up working in the
vineyard owned by their immigrant father who came to
America from Italy's famed winemaking region of Piedmont.


Redwood Creek, and imports
like Ecco Domani (Italy), Red
Bicyclette (France), Black Swan
and McWilliams Hanwood
Estate (both from Australia).
Gallo's premium wines
include the Gallo of Sonoma
labels and a host of other brands
including MacMurray Ranch,
Mirassou, Anapamu Cellars,
Frei Brothers Reserve,
Marcelina Vineyards and
Rancho Zabaco Winery.
What to look for:

Conch Republic
celebrating Keys
'holiday' now
T he Conch Republic is
celebrating its 25th year
of being an "independ-
ent" nation. The Conch
Republic was established by
secession of the Florida Keys
from the United States of
America, on April 23, 1982, in
response to a U.S. Border
Patrol blockade on U.S. 1 at
Florida City, effectively isolat-
ing Keys residents from the
mainland since the blockade
was on the Keys' only land
artery to and from the main-
land.
Key West Mayor Dennis
Wardlow went to federal court
in Miami to seek an injunction
to stop the federal blockade,
but to no avail. Upon leaving
the federal courthouse, on the
courthouse steps, Wardlow
announced to the world by way
of the TV crews and reporters
that "Tomorrow at noon the
Florida Keys will secede from
the Union!"

At noon on the day of seces-
sion at Mallory Square in Key
West, Wardlow read the procla-
mation of secession and pro-
claimed aloud that the Conch
Republic was an independent
nation separate from the U.S.
and then symbolically began
the Conch Republic's civil
rebellion by breaking a loaf of
stale Cuban bread over the
head of a man dressed in a U.S.
Navy uniform.
After one minute of rebel-
lion Wardlow and company
surrendered to the Union forces
and demanded $1 billion in for-
eign aid and war relief to
rebuild the nation after the fed-
eral siege.
Thus began the Conch
Republic tradition. The annual

Bluesman loves the islands


Acosta playing
at various Keys
venues this week
By DICK CONKLIN
L'Attitudes Contributor


New Orleans is certainly
S famous for its jazz -
Dixieland in particular
but it is also home to a
blend of blues sounds old and
new. Start with some old-time
Delta blues, add the boogie-
woogie piano stylings of Fats
Domino and Professor
Longhair, toss in some
Caribbean rhythms, and stir in
some generous portions of
Cajun, Creole, swamp and
zydeco, and you have a musical
jambalaya that can be laid-back
and happy or foot-stomping and
wild.
Carrying on the traditions of
musicians like James Booker
and Guitar Slim are modem-
S day blues masters like Kenny
Acosta, who has taken a liking
to the Keys and has made many
new friends, both musicians
and fans, during his annual
sojourns to our part of the
world.


Photo by DICK CONKLIN
Bluesman Kenny Acosta jams with local musicians during his last Keys tour, including bass lady
Tammy Bechtel (above). Catch him on his Keys tour, going on now.


"Our last trip to the Keys
was great," Acosta said. "We
can't wait to come back.
Porky's was one of the most
fun shows and I'm hooked on
Johnny's fried Key lime pie. It
turned into a great big jam and
Rocketman was our star. This
time ought to be off the hook!"
He was referring to a
Monday night last season when
he packed the house with a
variety of local musicians who
came to jam with Acosta and
his House Reckers band, and a
growing following of fans who


showed up to hear some real-
deal New Orleans blues.
This year his southernmost
tour has been expanded to
include stops in the Upper Keys
and Key West.
"I think the best thing about
traveling like this is going back
to venues and communities and
getting to be with the friends
that we have met on previous
tours," Acosta said. "There are
very few towns where we feel
like strangers."
Acosta is celebrating his
40th year in the business, sup-


ported by HouseReckers Matt
"Papa Sweet" Tielkemier on
bass and Shawn Manguno on
the drums. His home base is the
town of Central, Louisiana, just
north of Baton Rouge.
"In addition to blues, I play
swing, funk, R&B, classic rock,
and Latin music," he said.
"Most of the songs that I like to
perform have a good story line.
I usually do about 30 percent
originals, and original arrange-.
ments to other classic songs."
His CDs and LP albums fea-
ture Acosta originals with


bluesy titles like "I Want to
Touch You," "Nobody's Better
Than You," "Shake That
Thirig," "Funkiest Man Alive,"
"Hog For Ya Baby," "It's All
Good," "Wake Up and Party,"
"Worried Mind," "Tubin',"
"Spanish Town Mardi Gras,"
"Rajun Cajun," "Call the
Plumber" and "Time Bomb."
Along the way, Acosta has
collaborated and accompanied
blues greats like Muddy Waters,
Albert King, Buddy Guy, Rafel
and Kenny Neal, Marsha Ball,
Big Luther Kent, Clifton
Chennier, Stevie Ray Vaughan,
Rockin' Jake, and the Neville
Brothers.
He maintains a busy touring
schedule and is working on a
new CD for Rockin' Camel
Records that he plans to release
next month.
"The legendary Johnny
Sandlin is doing the recording,"
he said. "He did Jeff Beck,
Delbert McClinton, the Allman
Brothers and so many more."
He is hoping for a review in
Rolling Stone magazine in the
near future.
Acosta waxes poetic when
trying to describe his music.
"To me, the blues is all
about extremes happiness
and sadness at their peaks," he
said. "I don't feel bad, I feel
real freaking bad. I'm not just
happy, I'm about to explode. I
don't just miss my baby, I'm
drowning in my tears!
"I am a student of life and
music, not just the blues, all

Mango Moon and Lantern
Moon products, both of which
benefit women in developing
countries.
Mango Moon (www.mango
moonyarns.com) is a
California-based company
importing yams from the
Indonesian Spinners Co-Op,
which benefits an orphanage,
and the Nepal Women's
Empowerment Group, offer-
ing women assistance from
repression and abuse.
"Proceeds provide shelter,
health care, education, financial
independence and dignity,"
according to the business's Web
site.
Lantern Moon (www
.lanternmoon.com) coinci-
dence and the gender signifi-
cance of lunar mythology


account for the similarity of the
names of these two businesses
- wholesales knitting needles
and accessories (you'd be sur-
prised how many variations
there are) and needle cases, as
well as handcrafted products
that provide income, education
and self-reliance to Vietnamese
women and their fainilies.
Through it all, the four
women's friendship has grown
stronger.
"We still go out to dinner
together," Schlein said. "We
don't get enough of each other
at work."
The shop at 218 Whitehead
(across from the Audubon
House Museum) offers regular
knitting and crochet classes in
the afternoons and evenings, as
well as "knit and nosh" ses-
sions.

"Sand Dollar" tells the
story of Mary Randall, who
leaves Green Turtle Cay,
Bahamas, to come with her
husband to Key West after the
hurricane of 1846. Here, she
struggles to maintain her
independence and reconcile
her ideals with the realities of
life in old Key West.
Newhagen will read sever-
al passages from the book.
Partygoers are invited to dress
in the costume of the period.

Walters debuts with Keys Chorale


College's singing
group to honor
U.S. history
The Florida Keys
Community College's
Keys Chorale, under the
leadership of new director
Dean Walters, will give its 16th
annual Concert Under the Stars
April 28 on the Great Lawn by
the Sea at the FKCC campus.
"This year's theme is 'Let
Freedom Sing!,'" Walters said.
"We will perform music that
shaped our country's history, or
was shaped by it. We will be
performing selections from the
musical '1776,' some spirituals,
some patriotic songs, songs


about peace, and music that
reflects different times in our
growth as a nation, and music
that honors our military, all
while showing off the talents of
this wonderful chorale."
The Concert Under the Stars
has become an annual favorite
with Keys audiences. Families
can gather with their picnic
baskets and blankets and enjoy
an evening of music as the sun
sets over the water.
The 70 voices of the chorale
will be accompanied by pianist
Vicky Rosenblatt and an instru-
mental ensemble led by Harry
Schroeder. Soloists include
Heather Carruthers, Jim Cutty,
Margaret Domanski, Kim

blueberry, current and cherry,
then enjoy the earthy pinot
noir character that brings to
the senses a touch of vanilla"
and oak.
Rancho Zabaco
Zinfandels widely distrib-
uted throughout the Keys. The
undesignated Zinfandel, about
$7-$10 is a flavorful, every
day zin that works with beef
dishes, spicy Cubanrecipes
and red-sauced Italian food.
But the winery's better zins are
standouts in the "big" flavor
arena.
+ Swirl the 2004 Heritage
Vines Zinfandel ($15-$19) and


you'll notice intense blackber-
ry and spice aromas. The first
sip brings to the senses ripe
black cherries and raspberries.
The 2004 Stefani
Vineyard, Dry Creek Valley
Zinfandel ($25-$28) delivers
an intense blast of black cherry
and blackberry flavors with
subtle smokey overtones,
accompanied by strong tannins
- perfect for cellaring this
wine for four or five years.
The 2004 Reserve
Zinfandel ($22-$24) is less
elegant and very slightly less
full-bodied compared to the
Stefani. Generous tannins
encourage cellaring. There are
concentrated aromas and fla-
vors of plums and blackberry
jam, cloves and earth.


Dancing for better health


Tr he Florida Keys Country
Line Dancers strutted
their stuff for meetings.of
AARP members last week. On
April 9 and 10, the troupe enter-
tained at the Key West and Big
Pine senior citizen centers.
April 12, the show moved to the
Marathon Center, where the
dancers were joined by Cindy
Berlin's line-dance class.-
The program consisted of
dances to songs by country
singer Scooter Lee. Lee's foun-
dation, "Dancing for the
Dream," is directed toward sen-
iors and promoting a healthy
lifestyle with a motto of "Put
more years in your life, and
more life in your years through
line dancing."


"Line dancing," Louise
Wood, program director, con-
curs, "is a fun way to exercise
the body as well as the brain."
Audience members are
encouraged to come up and
learn a simple dance after the
presentation, and Wood said the
good sports that did so were
happy to learn that line dancing


is not so difficult after all.
Line-dance classes taught by
Norma Thompson are at the Big
Pine Senior Center Wednesdays
from 7 to 9 p.m., and Fridays
from 2 to 4. Call 745-2383.
Berlin's classes at the
Marathon Senior Center are
Thursday from 1:30 to 3:30
p.m. Call 289-0363.
All ages are welcome to join
the free classes.


Acosta touring the Keys


ACOSTA / From 8

long as I had a guitar, I'd never
go hungry or thirsty and I
didn't.
"If I could pass along one
thing to my young fans, I'd
want them to know that knowl-
edge is the key to everything in
this world."
To that end, he might add
"practice, practice, practice" to
the list.
"You show me someone
who can really play and I'll
show you someone who has
spent many hours alone," he
said. "Oh, and one more thing.
The only thing better than a
friend, is another one."
When at home, Acosta
enjoys a round of golf.
"I enjoy playing golf it is
such an easy way to give
someone the blues."
He has also been working
with some young students, part
of the next generation of New
Orleans bluesmen. He has one
son, two daughters, four grand-
daughters, and one great grand-
daughter. His wife Susan han-
dles much of his publicity and
scheduling and accompanies
him on most of his tours.
What's next for Acosta?
That's easy. "Bop 'til I drop."'

Art students 'seeing red'


And covering it
up with more
aesthetic hues
The excitement generated
by the hydrant beautifi-
cation effort has been
amazing," said Just 4 Kids
founder Paula Ciavolino. "The
amount of compliments that I
have consistently been receiv-
ing on behalf of the children's
artistic effort has been fabu-
lous. I am so very proud of the
children. I always had com-
plete faith in their ability to do
a great job."
After the first 75 hydrants
in Key West were completed in
October, residents may have
noticed another assortment
cropping up over the past few
weeks.
This recent effort has been
collaborated on by Just 4 Kids,
the Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority, the Key West Fire
Department, the city of Key
West, the School District and
the Police Department.
"I was approached with a


list of 945 hydrants and have
turned that into a successful,
accessible project that has
given the children a huge
amount of pride in their contri-
bution to their city's beautifi-
cation," Ciavolino said. "The
feedback from both parents
and teachers is that the chil-
dren feel very important to
have been allowed to con-
tribute-in this way."
Just 4 Kids, led by
Ciavolino for more than a
decade now, has been recog-
nized twice by the city with
the Mayor's Beautification
Award, and also won a first-
place award from the'Keep
AmericaBeautiful Foundation.
Ciavolino, who flew to
Washington, D.C., and Orlando
to accept the award, gives
Keys kids the credit for the
recognition and the awards.
Watch for the hydrant beau-
tification effort to spread
through the Upper Keys later
this month. Scheduled for
April 28, students from
