Sunshine case returns


Keys mayor,
commissioner
back in court
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Monroe County Mayor Mario
Di Gennaro and Commissioner
Sonny McCoy are scheduled for
arraignment Thursday on charges
of violating Florida's Sunshine
Law.
They are on the 10 a.m. dock-
et at the Plantation Key court-
house with visiting llth Circuit
Court Judge Samuel J. Sloan. ,
The commissioners face non-
criminal misdemeanor charges
stemming from a conversation
they had following a September
County Commission meeting in
which they discussed who would
be the next mayor.
In November, the commission
chose Di Gennaro for the one-


year post. He succeeded McCoy.
State Attorney Mark Kohl
charged them in January with
violating the state's open-govern-
ment law, which prohibits elected
officials from conferring private-
ly about anything that may later
come before them for a vote.
Di Gennaro and McCoy both
say their conversation was an
innocent off-the-cuff exchange,
but it was enough to bring down
charges.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday
Kohl will attend a County
Commission workshop at the
Key Largo library and give a
presentation about the do's and
don't of the Sunshine Law. That
meeting begins at 10 a.m.
This is the third date sched-
uled for McCoy's and Di
Gennaro's arraignment. The first,
in March, was delayed when
Monroe County Circuit Court
Judge Wayne Miller recused him-


self. An April court date was con-
tinued because no visiting judge
had yet been appointed, accord-
ing to Kohl's office.
McCoy has collected a num-
ber of Sunshine Law complaints
during his tenure.
SLast year, he was exonerated
after an investigation by the State
Attorney's Office into a com-
plaint alleging he spoke with
other commissioners before fir-
ing then-County Attorney
Richard Collins.
In 2001, an Upper Keys
reporter filed a complaint alleg-
ing McCoy illegally spoke with
then-Commissioner Murray
,Nelson outside a Tourist
Development Council meeting;
he was also cleared of that viola-
tion.
In addition, McCoy faces a
sexual harassment allegation
filed by former aide Celeste
Bruno with the U.S. Equal
Employment Opportunity
Commission.


Report shows Marathon fees high


FEES / From 1

Planning Director Fred Gross
presented the fees, which he said
were far below rates recom-
mended in a recent study by
Clarion Associates along with
James Nicholas, who produced
the study resulting in the city's
previously approved impact fees
for roads, parks anti recreation,
environmental lands, life safety
and others.
"They've been halved and
then halved again," Gross said.
"Then with the [city's] housing
task force looking and review-
ing, it was reduced again. We are
down to a very, very conserva-
tive figure."
Those figures ranged from $1
per square foot of new residen-
tial development up to $50,000
per. 1,000 square feet of tourist-
based commercial development.
When added to the current
fees, the total cost to build a
2,000-square-foot home would
be $8,735. For a 1,000-square-
foot bank, the cost would be
$45,324.
Those costs were decried by
local Realtors, who said such
"taxes" would add to the burden
of a slow real estate market and
overall slow Keys economy.


Bruce Schmitt, of Coldwell
Banker Schmitt Real Estate, said
the fees would double his costs
to build in the industrial zoning
district.
Karen Farley-Wilkinson of
Re/Max Key to the Keys said the
fees would all but stop develop-
ment, so "we won't need plan-
ners, we won't need a building
department..... We'll just stop
everything right now."
Also opposed were some res-
idents, including Thad Lovell,
who was recently assessed near-
ly $10,000 to help pay for the
construction of a road down
Avenue K in Coco Plum.
"How can I, as a small guy,
afford to live here?" Lovell
asked. "We are just the people
you are trying to help. You are
taxing us out. You are killing
us."
Bull said besides groups like
Habitat for Humanity and the
Middle Keys Community Land
Trust, the real estate "market has
not provided anything," and
"just saying no to everything is
not going to solve our affordable
housing problem."
Bull said the fees are not out
of line and are likely lower than
rates assessed in cities such as
Naples.
But according to a February


2006 study by the Florida Impact
Fee Review Task Force commis-
sioned by the state Legislature,
the vast majority (54 percent) of
293 Florida counties and munic-
ipalities polled assess a range of
$1 to $999 in impact fees to
build a 2,000-square-foot home.
Only 2 percent of govern-
ments polled assess rates as high
as Marathon's current rates
between $4,000 and $4,999, and
3.8 percent assess rates as high
as Marathon's proposed total
rates (including the affordable
housing fee) of $5,000 or more.
Local mortgage broker Josh
Mothner defended the city's fees
and said if the council didn't
pass the rules that night, the
board needed to find a way to
collect the money promised by
developers as part of the city's
affordable housing requirements
for development.
Gross presented a list to the
council of developments that
supposedly owe a total of $10
million to the city for the preser-
vation or creation of affordable
housing.
Last week, Gross told the
Keynoter the city has also allo-
cated more than 90 affordable
rate-of-growth-ordinance build-
ing permits to developers and
few, if any at all, have been built.

sunlight.
Duquesnel and two
researchers from the University
of Georgia responded and cap-
tured the snake.
The radio transmitter, and the
remains of two wood rats an
endangered species were
found inside the python.
Everglades National Park
wildlife biologist Skip Snow
euthanized the snake so he could
learn what the python had been
eating.
"It is unlikely that we hap-
pened to capture the one and
only Burmese python in the
Keys," Snow told Duquesnel.
Said Hardin, "This was
always my concern, what would
happen when an exotic species
like the python intersects with an
endangered species. Here it's
S happened, and it has the poten-
tial to be a serious problem."
"I have to say have to say I'm
not entirely surprised that a
Burmese python showed up on
S North Key Largo..That doesn't
make it any less bothersome,"
said Walter Meshaka, senior
curator of zoology and botany of
the State Museum of
Pennsylvania.
Meshaka, a South Florida
native, was a co-author of the
2000 herpetology report that
identified a colony of pythons
apparently thriving in the south-
ern reaches of Everglades
National Park.
The Keys environment "is


compromised enough,"
Meshaka said. "This would cer-
tainly aggravate things in a way
heretofore unknown."
How the python came to
North Key Largo is the topic of
conjecture among biologists.
"No one can offer more than
an expert opinion, but my guess
is that he was a released or
escaped pet," Hardin said. "This
is about the size where people
find that [their pet python] has
become a burden, so they release
it."
Meshaka said pythons swim
quite well, so it's very possible
the snake swam to North Key
Largo.
"Every new population of
exotic species is a barometer of
man's failure in the stewardship
of our natural legacy," Meshaka
said. "It's a measure of what
we've done wrong."
"It's one thing when we have
little geckos running around in
the lights, or see green iguanas
in the trees," he said.
"But when we're talking
about a reptile that can grow to
15 feet, then it's not so endear-
ing. Then it becomes a threat to
people or to the animals they
like."
Hardin said efforts will be
made to determine how many
other if any pythons have
made their way to the Keys. A
plan for controlling or eradicat-
ing them would follow.
Anyone spotting a python can
call the Everglades National
Park's Python Hotline at (305)
242-7827.


Keys briefs


NAS Key West tests
intentional fire today

Up to three small fires will
be set under controlled condi-
tions this morning at Naval Air
Station Key West.
Working in cooperation with
the state and The Nature
Conservancy, NAS Key West's
Environmental Department
hopes to gauge the effective-
ness of prescribed fires for
maintaining vegetative growth
in areas around runways,
reduce invasive and exotic veg-
etation, and improve forage' and
cover habitats for the Lower
Keys marsh rabbit.


Prescribed fire mimics the
natural frequency of lightning-
caused fires.
Today's fires at Boca Chica
will involve three small areas
totaling seven acres. The areas
will be inspected for wildlife
before the tests begin and will
cease immediately if any
wildlife is seen in the test areas.
If the wind is too strong,
coming from the wrong direc-
tion, or the temperature and
.humidity is outside a pre-
scribed range, the tests won't
be done.
Boca Chica Field will be
closed for aircraft operations
during the tests, which will take
about three hours each.

Heron survives


snake';


grip


Both are freed
with some help
of Big Pine man
While officials in Key Largo
had to deal with a Burmese
python that caught and ate a col-
lared wood rat in Key Largo,
another snake affair involving a
great white heron on Big Pine
Key was unfolding.
Just before dark on April 15,
Ben Edwards of Big Pine Key
looked out the door into his yard
and noticed a heron standing
there. Something didn't look
right, so he went to investigate
- and discovered the heron had
a corn snake by the tail in his
beak, but the rest of the snake
was wrapped around the bird's
neck.
Edwards got his camera and
started taking pictures, then real-
ized the snake was choking the
bird to death.
"When I went out there, the
bird was actually collapsing," he
said. "So I ran to the shed to get
my net. When I got back there,
the bird was collapsed. I
unwrapped the snake from
around his neck. The tail was
still in the bird's mouth, so I
took it out and the snake just


wiggled away."
The bird got up after a few
minutes and walked away, so
Edwards decided to leave it
alone. But he and his wife
Carlene checked on the bird sev-
eral times after dark, and it was
still hanging around the yard.
The next morning, Edwards
discovered the bird still in the
yard, this time with a dead
ground dove impaled in his
beak.
"I went and got the net, and
caught him again, and took him
to Maya" Totman at Florida
Keys Wildlife Rescue.
The bird was somewhat
lethargic, so she gave it homeo-
pathic medicine to reduce
swelling and subcutaneous flu-
ids for dehydration and let it
rest. The next day, he was
moved into an outside aviary,
where he began to eat on his
own.
A week later, he was active,
so he was released April 22 -
Earth Day.
"He's still hanging around a
neighbor's yard. I know it's the
same bird because Maya marked
it with a marker," Edwards said.
"This just shows a side of nature
we don't usually see."

Village trips over

deed restrictions vote

In a split decision, the Islamorada Village Council laid a big
egg on Thursday by gutting the 20-year deed restriction on an
affordable house.
This may be the first of several end runs launched trying to
undermine the legal standing of these protected covenants.
It's a bad precedent and could come back to haunt the village
and other local governments struggling to secure affordable
housing permits.
The City of Marathon just won a long legal battle defending
deed restrictions in their jurisdiction.
And in Key West, where loosey-goosey protections for five
years proved to be a joke at protecting affordability, the move-
ment is heading in the opposite direction.
After the Truman Annex and golf-course properties were sold
as affordable, they quickly became market-rate units and five-
year restrictions were raised to 20 and 30 years in other agree-
ments.
With the hue and cry afoot over the short-term protections at
the Salt Ponds, the Key West City Commission followed the
recommendations of its planning board and adopted 50 years as
the standard for any new affordable housing.
A similar drive is afoot by the Monroe County Workforce
Housing Task Force.
Monroe County has seen similar pressure to relent on those
restrictions, which control the amount of appreciation the qual-
ified families can earn when they sell these affordable units.
The County Commission heard a similar plea of economic
hardship from a Cudjoe Key couple back in October. Their
request was denied.
Another petition from a Sugarloaf owner whose deed restric-
tion expired in 1999 was approved by the County Commission.
So here come three Islamorada council members voting to
abridge the 20-year deed restriction in year four for a family
who said they want more profits from the sale in order to buy
a bigger house.
That's just bad public policy at a time when folks are skepti-
cal of government's many pledges to make housing affordabil-
ity a top priority.
Mayor Dave Boemer along with Vice Mayor Cathi Hill were
on the losing side of the 3-2 vote. Here's what Boemer had to
say: "The government subsidized those units and I don't see
why we should reward it [breaking the covenant]."
We repeat: This is a bad precedent. The Village Council
ought to find a way to review its action and reverse this ill-con-
sidered breech of affordable housing compacts.

Women deserve pay equal to men


EDITOR:
On March 6, the Paycheck Fairness Act was
re-introduced in the 110th Congress. According
to the latest U.S. Census Bureau data, women
continue to receive unequal pay for the same
work; on average, women earn 77 cents for
every dollar a man [earns].
Tuesday, the Marathon Business and
Professional Women's Club joined thousands of
women from across the United States in a
national day of recognition against unfair pay
called Equal Pay Day. Because women earn
less, we must work longer for the same pay.
April signifies the point into the next year that a
woman must work in order to earn the wages


paid to a man in the previous year.
According to the AFL-CIO, over a 40-year
career, the average 25-year-old woman who
works full-time will earn approximately
$523,000 less than the average man if current
wage patterns continue. I am extremely con-
cerned about pay inequity for every woman as
well as their family.
Fair pay takes real change and we can make
a difference. We encourage the business com-
munity to review its pay practices and to per-
form an equal-pay self-audit provided by the
U.S. Department of Labor's Women's Bureau.

Grace Jones kids served by great staff


EDITOR:
I am a working parent of two children who
attend Grace Jones Daycare. I am so proud of
the day care, I had to write to you.
I choose to send my children to Grace Jones
and pay full tuition for both my son and daugh-
ter. I think sometimes people in the community
may have the wrong impression of the school,
because I often have to explain why I chose
Grace Jones.
One day a couple of weeks ago, I was pick-
ing up my kids. I noticed that the teachers and
Ms. Iris Coe, the director, were really excited.
The school had an evaluation by Wesley House


Family Services, which monitors licensing for
the state.
Grace Jones scored 98.4 percent out of 100. I
thought the score was amazing in the cramped,
temporary building the school occupies since
Hurricane Wilma. I cannot say enough about
the enthusiasm and quality of the staff. They are
the best.
I sure hope the community willjoin the par-
ents, teachers and board in getting the new
school built. Our kids deserve the best.

Daytime headlights on U.S. 1 can save lives


EDITOR:
As a fourth-year snowbird who spends five
months a year in the Keys, I've come to appreci-
ate the wisdom of the "Lights on for Safety"
signs, which are all toe scarce from my point of
view.
Frequently driving to Key West from mile
marker 92 and returning, I'm constantly con-
fronted with vehicles that are hard to see at a
comfortable distance because they do not sub-
scribe to the idea of headlights on during the day.
Frequently they are also very slow to put them
on as the sun is setting or when it rains.
It's difficult to understand this mentality.
Lights on in the daytime is not so you can see
ahead; it is so other drivers can see you. With all
the temptations that we all feel to pass slow-
moving vehicles. It is a dangerous procedure,
particularly on our two-lane road.
An oncoming stream of vehicles is plain to
see when their headlights are on. When, mixed in

City cleanup is easy
EDITOR:
Marathon can clean up and improve appear-
ances without spending a lot of money if it
started code enforcement on dumps like the
old Gators restaurant and improved the city's
landscaping and architectural review for new
site plans.

with that stream, some of the vehicles have no
lights and have colors fully blending with the
background colors of our plant life, they are
invisible, particularly to some of our older resi-
dents whose eyesight may have seen somewhat
better days.
So what I am suggesting is that a renewed.
campaign be undertaken by our publications and
our elected officials to promote "Lights on for
Safety." It will save lives.

Former chamber chief was shoulders above


EDITOR:
I would like to thank Audrey
Moir, who recently resigned her
position with the Greater Marathon
Chamber of Commerce, for her
grace, professionalism and diligence
while serving as the chamber's exec-
utive director.
Audrey was a breath of fresh air
and took great pride in her accom-
plishments. I know that my tenure as
president of the chamber would have
been significantly harder were it not
for Audrey. As executive director,
Audrey increased membership by
raising the level of service to our
members, seeking solutions for mem-


ber businesses and maintaining a
professional atmosphere in both the
chamber offices and Visitors' Center.
Audrey's commitment to the com-
munity was exemplary. If the Greater
Marathon Chamber of Commerce
was involved in something, Audrey
ensured it was done right. Her atten-
tion to detail and eye for quality
were second to none.
Good luck and thank you to
Audrey; I wish her great fortune.
May she have a warm hearth in
Connecticut or a cool breeze here in
the Keys.

Use sirens for hurricane warnings


EDITOR:
We're preparing for the hurri-
cane season and pray that nothing
drastic will happen this season to
the local residents.
The past few years have kept
the Monroe County School
District and residents alert to
many preparations that must be
planned ahead, with thoughts of
power outages, water shortages,
flooding, winds and shelters for
many locals who don't leave,
since many locals who stayed
behind to endure nature's fury
have been slowly recovering from
Hurricane Wilma. -


The many hardships and lack of
funds often keep many residents
from making the trip to the main-
land. The state recently installed
electronic highway signs along
with cameras to keep an eye on
U.S. 1, with traffic coming in and
out of Monroe County.
I believe the city and county
governments should install sirens
in the Middle, Upper and Lower
Keys for when danger approaches.
I remember as a kid in Baltimore,
Md., that a siren was the best way
to alert the locals of storms, etc.

Country-western party again a success


EDITOR:
Anyone who attended the fifth
annual country-western party to
benefit Habitat for Humanity of the
Middle Keys may have sore feet
from dancing in cowboy boots or
their voices may be hoarse from
cheering for their favorite horse
'during the traditional Habitat horse
races.
Kudos to Christine Todd, chair-
woman of the fundraiser, and her
team for another profitable fun
event to help raise money to pro-
vide affordable housing to a select-
ed family in the community.
Those who know me well know
this party is "my baby" since I start-
ed it five years ago and I want to
see it succeed for many more years.
My recent illness has not allowed
Don and I to be able to do some
things, but we thoroughly enjoyed
the party (among the first to arrive
and last to leave), as usual.
The food prepared by the Stuffed
Pig was delicious, and the two
bands were great as usual. Scott
Harper flew in from Kansas to do
his fifth party. Thanks also to Crazy
Dave Howell and of course Dave


Scott and his many backup and solo
singers. The business community
donated freely of auction items
again this year.
We have wonderful community
of loving caring people who freely
give of themselves to assist others
in need. Keep up the good work,
Marathon.

Kids need

Easter event
EDITOR:
I think it is really sad that the
city of Marathon didn't do any-
thing for the kids on Easter. How
hard vould an Easter egg coloring
contest or an egg hunt be? Throw
in a bounce house and some face
painting and you have some happy
kids.
Let's face it, there isn't much
for the young kids here. Anything
would have been appreciated.

This is the scene
of the double
fatality that
closed the
18-Mile Stretch
on Monday.

Fatal crash shouldn't have held up food delivery


EDITOR:
Do any Monroe County sheriff's
deputies have an IQ over 60?
Monday, the 18-Mile Stretch was
shut down for a fatal accident at mile
marker 116. I live on a boat at
Gilbert's, mile marker 107.9, immedi-
ately north of the Jewfish Creek Bridge.
I ordered Chinese delivery that night
and advised the driver to tell the sher-
iff's deputy that he was only making a
delivery to Gilbert's. He did but was
still turned away.
I called an hour after he was due and
was advised he was turned away by
Monroe deputies, and they told me they
would send another driver. That driver
was also turned away.
I learned, before returning to my
boat, that without a room key, no one
could come.to Gilbert's. So I was left
with no food, I am diabetic, and the
kitchen was closed at Gilbert's.


What about the people who have a
boat in the slips here (no room key)?
What happens to the people who live in
the marinas at mile marker 112 (no
room key)?
Monroe County deputies closed the
Latin American Cafe and Gilbert's
restaurants and bars at 9 p.m. the day of
the accident due to their stupidity. They
also cost the Cheng Garden Restaurant
$35 in sales and the cost of paying two
drivers.
I spoke to a Sheriff's Office ser-
geant, who blamed the Florida Highway
Patrol. Is the FHP more in tune to local
places and distances than the Monroe
County deputies? Are Monroe deputies
unable to make rational decisions or are
they just robots for the FHP? Any deci-
sion-makers among them?

Bridge Run should have been no surprise


EDITOR:
This is in response to the gentleman
from Maine regarding the Seven Mile
Bridge Run.
The Marathon Runners Club last year
gave out more than $30,000 to our local
youth programs. That amount, times the
26 years this run has been held, plus all
of the people who have worked or par-
ticipated in the run over 26 years,
equals a hometown event.
I'm sure they have these in Maine,
too, probably as unique to that area. We
don't have "another way to go" here in
Marathon and are very proud of the
seven-mile wonder of our community.
The Maine letter writer must have
our city and county officials in a
quandary regarding how he missed the
several giant lighted highway signs he
passed on U.S. 1 to Key West and back
up to the bridge that morning that stat-


ed, for more than a week, 24/7, that the
road was going to be closed from 6:45
to 9 a.m. April 21 (so much for an
amber alert being seen).
There were also smaller road signs,
banners and marquees; and let's not for-
get the local newspapers and radio sta-
tions that constantly reminded visitors
and locals of this wonderful event.
I hope the Maine visitor is not too
stressed out from visiting us. Maybe
next time we can have people stop each
car and notify them of any ongoing
events in the Keys (like in 1982, with
the Border Patrol).
I am glad visitors come to the para-
dise we call home. I guess the next sign
should remind visitors that we are all
not here on vacation.

But the Navy
has a problem
in early going
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The U.S. Navy this week
released the newest rendering of
its noise and safety contour
maps, putting a potential obsta-
cle in the path of Cay Clubs and
others looking to develop a proj-
ect in the vicinity of Naval Air
Station Key West.
Navy spokesman Jim Brooks
and Ron Demes, the Navy's
business manager and top civil-
ian employee, say conceptual
plans by Cay Clubs to convert a
40-acre parcel of undeveloped
land on Boca Chica into an RV
park is not compatible with the
SAICUZ.
The 2007 Air Installation
Compatible Use Zone, or
AICUZ, recommends the kinds
of land use the county should
allow around NAS based upon
safety and noise levels.
"The AICUZ is not meant to


be anti-development," Brooks
said. "It's all about compatible
use.
"Land-use definitions in zon-
ing tend to have different mean-
ings. When the AICUZ say resi-
dential, that means habitating
whether it's one day or a
month."
The chunk of land owned by
the Alfred M. Sears Trust has
seven deep-dredged canals
known locally as the sub pens.
The parcel is nestled in the mid-
dle of government land, accessi-
ble to U.S. 1 by a restricted
access road across Navy land.
George Halloran, a long-time
board member of Key West
environmental organization Last
Stand, says Cay Clubs came to
his board hoping for support of
its purchase and development of
the parcel.
"They have asked us to sup-
port this whole idea because of
what they considers the bene-
fits," Halloran said, "including
long-term affordable housing at
West Isle, space for commercial
fishing and a public boat ramp
access. We have concerns with

One man knifed,
another arrested

An altercation between two
Key Largo men Wednesday night
resulted in one being airlifted to a
Miami hospital for treatment of
stab wounds and the other being
arrested.
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office deputies were called to a
home on Harry Harris Drive
shortly before 11 p.m. and found
the 25-year-old victim bleeding
from a wound to his right side.
Deputies said he reported that
he was visiting the house when he
was attacked and stabbed by one
of the residents, old Nathan
Knight, 23. A witness backed up
the victim's version, deputies said.
Deputies also interviewed
Knight, who said the victim
attacked him and that he used his
pocketknife in self-defense.
Knight said he initially ran into a
wooded area, where he discarded
the knife but no knife was found.
Knight was charged with
aggravated battery.


the environmental aspects of it
and with the objections that the
Navy as well would have."
Cay Clubs, he said, has pre-
sented a plan that would transfer
more than 290 development
rights from the West Isle
Apartments in Key West to the
Boca Chica site. Cay Clubs
would seek to divide those
rights into some 500 RV devel-
opment rights and dedicate the
existing West Isle for affordable
housing.
Calls to Cay Clubs officials
were not returned by press time
Friday, and the company's ties
to the West Isle complex are
unclear.
Brooks says Cay Clubs is in
the due-diligence process, but
he says there are some serious
problems with the compatibility,
including the fact that the entire
parcel is just under the approach
of one of the NAS runways and
considered an accident potential
zone.
"One compatible use fdo that
site might be environmental
mitigation," Brooks said.
New developments often
require some sort of trade-off
environmental improvement,
'and he says the sub-pens area
could provide a kind of mitiga-
tion bank.
"We are still discussing with
[Cay Clubs'] Dave Clark,"
Halloran said, "about what we
feel would be the most appropri-
ate use for that area."
The AICUZ may also have
some impact on the proposed
redevelopment of a number of
Stock Island properties, includ-
ing the eventual construction of
43 new luxury homes on Key
Haven and the adjacent
Enchanted Isle. Already the
Navy has registered an objec-
tion to the proposed residential
units at Kings Pointe at the old
Oceanside Marina on Stock
Island.
Outside of lodging objec-
tions, however, the Navy's rec-
ommendations don't have a lot
of teeth.
"History is the best warning
for developers who choose to
ignore the military recommen-
dations," Brooks said. "Take the
Naval Air Station Oceania in
Virginia. Encroachment finally
resulted in the base being
closed."
A full one third of salaries
paid in the Keys, he said, are
military payroll.

Pinkus says city of Marathon partially to blame


DEAL DEAD / From 1

trict, which bought Marathon
Manor almost two years ago for
a negotiated price of $7.4 mil-
lion.
"I want to see the appraisals
on that property," School
Board Chairman Andy
Griffiths said after getting
word Friday that Cay Clubs
had decided to walk away.
Acevedo said the district's
original intent.was to acquire
the property to expand athletic
fields and parking for the adja-
cent Marathon High School,
and develop the building for
affordable housing.
"We still have the potential
for that, but now we've got to
figure out how to pay for it,"
the superintendent said Friday.
The late Tracy Holder, then
vice president of acquisitions
for Cay Clubs Resorts and


Marinas, approached the board
before the 2005 sale was final,
saying Cay Clubs would pur-
chase Marathon Manor from
the district and deed over land
to extend athletic fields.
Cay Clubs would then use
the rest of the property to build
affordable housing, he said.
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. That same
day, Holder died of complica-
tions from diabetes.
At Tuesday's School Board
meeting, former Marathon
Councilman Jeff Pinkus repre-
sented Cay Clubs and told the
School Board the company is
not ready to close on the prop-
erty, adding that Cay Clubs is
working to obtain financing.
Lenders want a letter from the
city of Marathon, he said, stat-


ing the building can be con-
verted to affordable housing.
But when School Board
member Steven Pribramsky
asked Pinkus why Cay Clubs
can't finance the project out of
pocket and be reimbursed later,
Pinkus replied: "We just don't
have the liquid assets right now
for that."
"We've received no formal
application," said Jimmy
Morales, Marathon city attor-
ney. "A developer is -well
aware of the process and it's
unfortunate if someone is try-
ing to blame the city for this."
With Cay Clubs stepping
out for now, Acevedo said he's
asked the district's facilities
management director to pursue
a request with the city of
Marathon to establish develop-
ment rights for the property.
Pribramsky said he wants
"current appraisals assuming
we have 90 or less licenses and


assuming we do not have any
transient licenses to sell."
The original offer from Cay
Clubs was pegged to getting
the city to approve transfer of
some transient units, according
to sources.
But such transfers require
approval from the state
Department of Community
Affairs, which governs build-
ing rights in the Keys under the
Area of Critical State Concern
oversight.
"Certainly we need to move
forward with the city of
Marathon and the DCA to
determine exactly how many
licenses we do have so that we
can go back to the market and
ask for a reasonable price for
the property," Pribramsky said.
By exiting the deal Friday,
Cay Clubs avoids paying
$150,000 in additional exten-
sion fees plus another
$100,000 in lost interest penal-


At current rates, interest
income on $7.4 million is
approximately $33,000 per
month, Pribramsky said.
"So for seven months, it's
cost us $232,668 in lost inter-
est. But now the clock is tick-
ing. At $33,000 per month, in
four months we'll be upside
down on this deal."
Per the original extension
approved in January, Cay
Clubs agreed to reimburse the
district $150,000 plus the orig-
inal $200,000 in deposit money
for a total of $350,000.
At the May 8 School Board
meeting, Pribramsky said he
will demand verification "we
get the $350,000 because we
don't have it; who's holding
it?"

Council talks
other ways to
cut 2008 budget
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

Marathon City Manager Mike
Puto told the Marathon City
Council Tuesday he is initiating a
hiring freeze in an effort to check
city spending heading into what
many feel will be a lean 2008
budget season.
In a Thursday workshop, the
City Council continued dis-
cussing ways to cut spending,
and one option a wage freeze
- didn't go over too well.
"We have to be looking at
some point at a wage freeze,"
Vice Mayor Marilyn Tempest
said with every city department
head in attendance. "I'd like it to
be a discussion as a manner of
saving dollars. I would support
it."
A near-deafening silence fol-
lowed and was broke by Mayor
-Chris Bull.
"I've always been a firm
believer. of taking care of
employees .That's what I do in
my business," Bull said. "To me,
that's one of the last things" the
council should consider.
Bull and the rest of the council
were hardly receptive to


Tempest's request, but the dam-
age seemed to be done.
"The city is operating right
now and not losing money; it's
operating well," Planning
Director Fred Gross told the
council. "While you are asking
the staff to go out and do more,
do more, you are not rewarding
them."
Councilman Mike Cinque
reiterated a lack of support for a
wage freeze, and said although
costs should be cut, he didn't
want staff to be afraid to spend
money if the need is there.
Fire Chief Dale Beaver told
the council that's already the case.
"What I'm getting is, we don't
want to spend money, so I've cut
out my overtime, cut out comp
time," said Beaver, who has yet
to fill his former position of fire
marshal after being named chief
last year.
"When the hiring freeze
comes in ... now I may lose that
position when I really need it," he
added.
The council and staff also dis-
cussed other cost-cutting options
such as waiting 90 days until new
city hires are eligible for benefits.
Staff will also investigate differ-
ent providers for what several
council members called a
"Cadillac" health insurance poli-
cy that cost-the city, and staff

members, too much to afford.
Council directed staff to nego-
tiate a new contract to provide
fire and emergency medical serv-
ices to neighboring Key Colony
Beach based on its relative tax-
able land value as compared to
Marathon.
Finance Director Peter
Rosasco said under that policy,
the city would charge $378,000
for its services, as opposed to the
$315,000 it collected from Key

Council lifts deed restriction


In dissenting,
Boerner cites
government help
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

An Islamorada resident who
bought a home with a 20-year
affordable-housing deed restric-
tion before the beginning of this
year could be able to sell it at
market rate, the Village Council
decided Thursday.
The council voted 3-2 not to
subject certain owners of afford-
able housing to new deed restric-
tions, which if approved by the
council at a second meeting, will
affect only those who bought
affordable houses in Islamorada
since Jan. 1.
Mayor Dave Boerner and Vice
Mayor Cathi Hill voted against
the ordinance.
Boerner, who serves on a
county task force studying
affordable housing, said homes
with affordable deed restrictions
are essentially subsidized by the
government since their building
permits were moved to the head
of the line. Therefore, allowing
them to be sold at market-rate
prices violates the letter of the
restriction, which- should still be
in effect, he said.
"The government subsidized
those units, and I don't see why
we should reward it," Boerer
told his colleagues on the Village
Council.
Hill voted no because the ordi-
nance also raises the salary cap
for those who qualify for an
affordable-housing mortgage to
$97,400, or 160 percent of the
median annual income in
Islamorada $60,000 a year,
according to Deputy Village
Manager Ed Koconis. The cap
was around $72,000, 120 percent
of median income.
Under the ordinance, a three-
bedroom unit would have a max-
imum sales price of $289,750. A
one-bedroom unit would have a
sales cap of $228,750 and a two-
bedroom unit, $259,250.
Boerer said the deed restric-
tions would apply for 30 years
and could be renewed for 10-year
increments thereafter.
The vote to allow residents
who bought prior to 2007 was
good news to some Islamorada
residents, like Tiffany Williams.
Williams and her husband bought


a house with an affordable deed
restriction four years ago, but
now want to sell it for enough
money to buy a bigger house in
the Keys.
"We would like to buy anoth-
er house, and we'd like to stay in
the Florida Keys, but we can't get
enough equity out" of their deed-
restricted home, Williams told the
council.
Councilmen Chris Sante, Don
Achenberg and Michael
Reckwerdt voted in favor of the
ordinance.

Other action
Also Thursday, the council:
+ Voted 4-1 for an ordinance
requiring at least a four-vote
"super majority" for capital
expenditures $4 million and over.
That same ordinance raises the
cap to $25,000 from $10,000 for
any purchase made by the village
manager without needing council
approval.
Sante cast the no vote, saying
he agreed with raising the cap for
manager spending, but thought
the super-majority vote on capital


expenditures would further slow
down the village's financial deci-
sion-making process.
+ An ordinance can now go to
the state Department of
Community Affairs that permits
hotel and motel owners to build
new full bathrooms in rooms they
are expanding.
The Upper Keys Lodging
Association pushed for the
change, arguing new market
trends in the Keys point to the
need for larger hotel rooms. Hill
voted no, saying a 2,000-square-
foot hotel room, the maximum
size under the ordinance, could
too easily be converted into a
condominium.
+ Myles Milander, director of
public works and utilities, told
the council that engineering con-
sultant firm E-Sciences is analyz-
ing the cost differences among
building sewage treatment facili-
ties on all four islands in
Islamorada, building only one
treatment facility on Lower
Matecumbe Key and shipping the
other three islands' waste to Key
.Largo's treatment facility, or pip-
ing all four islands' wastewater to
Key Largo.

Moratorium talks resume


Commission
meets in workshop
on Wednesday
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

A temporary hold on trailer
redevelopment is on the agenda
for Wednesday's Monroe County
Commission workshop, after the
commission last week decided
against discussing it at its regular
monthly meeting.
The commission convenes at
10 a.m. at the Key Largo library.
Commissioners are able to dis-
cuss items on the workshop
agenda but can only make deci-
sive votes during their regular
monthly meetings.
The moratorium, endorsed by
the county's Workforce Housing
Task Force as well as the Monroe
County Planning Commission,
would buy housing advocates
some time while an ordinance to
protect the few remaining trailer
parks in the Keys makes its way
through the planning process,
according to Key West attorney
Robert Cintron, who's gotten
involved in housing issues.


Many affordable-housing
advocates contend trailer parks
are the last bastions of truly
affordable housing in the Keys.
As property values have
soared in recent years, property
owners have succumbed to the
siren song of big developers who
are fast razing the properties for
high-end housing.
"I hope that we can discuss
the moratorium and come up
with some guidelines along the
line of those created by the city
of Davie," Commissioner
George Neugent said. That city,
too, is struggling with the rapid
redevelopment of trailer parks.
"They have a really good tem-
plate."
Cintron has fought for the
rights of renters for years and
represented residents evicted
from trailer parks at no cost.
He wanted the commission to
vote on the moratorium during
its April 25 meeting. The com-
mission discussed the moratori-
um during its last workshop, on
April 3, and Cintron said he
hoped it would vote it in April.
Also on the agenda Wednes-
day are discussion of legislative


property tax proposals, a presen-
tation on the state's government-
in-the-sunshine law and the
Marathon library.
County Mayor Mario Di
Gennaro says he's a little disap-
pointed in the direction these
workshops are taking. The com-
mission agreed in February to
hold a workshop before each
monthly meeting to hammer out
.issues it would later vote on.
"I'd like to get less items on
the agenda and more input from
my fellow commissioners and
staff," Di Gennaro.said. "Right
now it's not what we intended
and it's defeating its purpose.
They're turning into something
more like a public hearing, which
is what the [regular] meetings
are."
Commission Sylvia Murphy
agreed.
"They don't accomplish what
I'd nope they would be," she
said. "I would like to see a lot
more input from staff."
"It's obvious that developers
are dictating the majority of the
commission," Neugent said. "I
just hope we'll be able to discuss
these things and maybe have a
little more influence through the
discussion."


Feds oppose Hendrick's plea


Convicted lawyer
wants possible
sentence reduced
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Just a week before former
Monroe County Attorney Jim
Hendrick faces sentencing on
four federal felony convictions,
the courts have yet to rule on his
motions for acquittal and for a
new trial.
But Wednesday, U.S. Attorney
Alexander Acosta filed a motion
opposing Hendrick's most recent
motion that would lessen his sen-
tence.
In February, a Key West jury
found Hendrick guilty of
obstructing justice, conspiracy to
obstruct justice and two counts of
witness tampering in connection
with a bribery scheme involving
former County Commissioner
Jack London.
He faces up to five years for


the conspiracy charge and up to
10 years imprisonment for each
of the other three convictions.
Hendrick is free on $200,000
bond until sentencing May 4.
On April 10, Hendrick attor-
ney Ed Shohat filed an objection
to the criteria used by investiga-
tors that determine the penalty for
Hendrick's crimes. Shohat con-
tends, among other arguments,
that enhancements that could
worsen the sentence do not apply
to the case.
Shohat contends Hendrick's
"role in the underlying bribery
offense" was erroneously
assessed.
Acosta counters, however, that
the "defendant's knowledge and
complicity in the payoff to Hilliard
and London gave rise to" the grand
jury investigation that Hendrick is
accused of obstructing.
Hendrick's conviction result-
ed from an FBI investigation into
a bribery scheme in' the mid-
1990s in which Marathon devel-


oper Marvin Rappaport paid
almost $83,000 to Key West
political consultant Randal
Hilliard.
According to the investiga-
tion, $29,000 of that payment
was funneled to London in 1997
in exchange for expediting
Rappaport's redevelopment of
the former Hall's Fish Camp in
Marathon.
Hilliard secretly recorded
numerous conversations with
Hendrick and testified against
him during the trial after getting
immunity from the federal gov-
ernment.
Prosecutors had also counted
on London's testimony, but
London, facing three years in
prison after pleading guilty to fil-
ing a false tax return for not
reporting the bribe, died in
November.
Hendrick, county attorney from
1995 to 2002,.has been a member
of The Florida Bar since 1972.
His membership has been sus-
pended until his appeals are
exhausted.

Sick sea turtles are on the rise


Food issues
could be source
of the problems
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A day's charter turned into
a sea-turtle rescue when Key
Largo fishing guide Mike
Makowski spotted a logger-
head in trouble April 17.
"I know some things about
how turtles act, and it was
pretty clear that we needed to
rescue this guy," said
Makowski, a South Florida
native who has been guiding
on his Blackfoot Charters boat
for five years.


I : ENIRO N -]I


The adolescent turtle, nov
nicknamed Blackfoot Jack
joins a rash of sickly sea tur
tles arriving at the Turtle
Hospital in Marathon.
"Something's going on,'
manager Sue Schaf said. "Wi
had seven turtles come ii
within a 10-day span."
Most were from ocean an
bay waters off the Uppe
Keys, but some also have
come from Middle Key:
water, she said.
Boaters are being asked t(
watch for turtles that may be
acting strangely or are unable
to submerge.
They all seem to be sub
adults like Blackfoot Jack
who still weighs 90 pound

and measures about three feet
long.
"This guy wasn't just lying
there. He tried to get away
from us," Makowski said. "He
couldn't."
The turtles seem to have
been consuming an excess of
sponges, Schaf said.
"Turtles are known to eat
sponges but they've been eat-
ing a lot of them," Schaf said.
"We don't if it's because
they're having a problem find-
ing other food sources or


what. They may be trying to
eat whatever they can find."
Lung problems also seem
common.
Blackfoot Jack, found in
Barnes Sound, seems on the
road to recovery, Schaf said.
No one should attempt to
pick up a protected sea turtle
without contacting the Turtle
Hospital or the state Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission, said Schaf. If a
turtle in trouble is spotted, call
it in, she said.


Once receiving approval for
the rescue, Makowski and his
customers "grabbed [the tur-
tle] and brought him on board"
for a trip back to shore. He
gave the customers a price
reduction for giving up fishing
time.
"Every year, I develop
more and more sympathy for
our scaly friends and aquatic
friends," Makowski said.
"Helping them out is the right
thing to do."


FCAT scores up for 4th-graders

Monroe County eighth- and
10th-graders did slightly worse

Seventy, four percent -of
Keys fourth-graders scored at
least 3.5 out of 6 on the essay


portion of the test. Last year,
72 percent achieved that mark.
However, in 2006, 87 per-
cent of eighth-graders and 76
percent of 10th-graders scored
3.5 or higher, compared to 82
and 71 percent respectively
this year.
The trend was-the same for

Legislature takes
up insurance reform

The 2007 Florida legislative
session is just a week from clo-
sure, and attention is finally turn-
ing toward property insurance
reform.
According to members of Fair
Insurance Rates in Monroe, the
insurance lobby has been work-
ing to roll back pro-consumer
gains that grew out of January's
special session on insurance.
Firm asks residents to go to
www.firmkeys.org and send a
message to legislators and Gov.
Charlie Crist to urge them to sup-
port four key aspects of property
insurance reform:
+ Mandating prior rate
approvals.
+ Eliminating the $1 million
cap. Unless legislation is
changed, homeowners insuring
for more than $1 million will
soon become ineligible for cov-
erage.
+ Discouraging take-outs. As
the legislation is written, incen-
tives are given to agents to move
consumers from Citizens
Property Insurance Corp. to other
more-expensive companies like
Florida Peninsula.

German officially in the race


He resigns from
Hometown PAC,
will face Rossi
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

As expected, Hometown PAC
Chairman Todd German resigned
from his position Tuesday and
declared his candidacy for the
District 2 City Commission seat
against incumbent Mark Rossi.
Both were among nominees
two years ago to be appointed to
the commission to replace
incumbent Merili McCoy, who
died two years into her term.
The City Commission select-
ed Rossi to fill in for five months
until the September 2005 elec-
tion, when he defeated George
Halloran. Rossi's term was limit-
ed to two years, fulfilling that
vacated by McCoy.
After German announced his
resignation, Carol Wightman, the
newly named PAC chairwoman,
took the reigns as German
descended from the podium.
Wightman was a founding mem-
ber of Hometown PAC and owns
and is managing partner of the
Marquesa Hotel and Cafe
Marquesa.
Tuesday's Hometown PAC
gathering was designed as a
forum for community leaders to
offer their views on issues facing
the city. Among them:
City Community Housing
Committee member Richard
Grusin on affordable housing:
"It's become rather quickly
how this problem is tearing us
apart," Grusin said of Key West's
most talked-about quandary.
Grusin spoke of people who are
"hot-bedding," sharing a bed
with a "roommate" by swapping
sleep time back and forth
between work schedules.
Complacency is the enemy,
according to Grusin, who sug-
gested partnering with Habitat
for Humanity. while stressing
three vital requirements to create
solutions: funding, land and
building permits.
"We must preserve what's
affordable," he said.
+ Keys Federal Credit Union
Chief Executive Officer John
Dolan-Heitlinger, on ethics in
government.
He said the real question is:
"How will you know it [ethics]
when you see it?" The answer, he


said, lies in two important acts:
Citizens must review and report
on political candidates' character
and ask quantifiable and measur-
able questions.
+ The Community Founda-
tion of the Florida Keys' Ed
Block, on Key West.
SBlock quoted numerous sta-
tistics from pollster Lou Harris
that revealed what Key West res-
idents want.
The consensus is the majority
of residents (76 percent) say
they're proud to live in a city that
attracts a large number of
tourists, but do not care for the
extra noise they bring, the T-shirt
shops that overcharge and the
increased pollution.
Block cited Harris' numbers
in saying residents are tired of an
excess of homeless people, pan-
handlers and vagrants; and 93
percent of residents say it's
important to do a better job
cleaning up parks.
Block said most people want


Meetings


city government to "strike a bal-
ance" between the services it
provides for residents and
tourists.
The Historic Florida Keys
Foundation's George Born, on
historic preservation
Born mentioned that Key
West should capitalize on its rich
history, since Key West beaches
don't have the best reputations.
He noted the Historic Archi-
tectural Review Commission
needs more staff.
Banker Kurt Lewin, on
quality of life.
Lewin reminisced of the days
when he used to be able to ride
his bike every day to school as a
kid. Those days are over, he said.
"We all want to feel safe," he
said, adding, "It has to be a
process, a goal, a mindset."
+ The Nature Conservancy's
Jody Thomas, on the environ-
ment.
According to Thomas, cruise
ships can dump wastewater at the
12-mile mark that the no-dis-
charge zone should be expanded

Staff would

rented space
By DAVID BALL

For the first time in more than
a year, all of the city of
Marathon's offices may soon be
located in the same place in
temporary trailers on the city-
owned property between 98th
and 99th streets historically
called the events field.
Some offices, including those
for the city manager, clerk and
other administrators have
already been located in four
joined trailers for some time
while the Building, Planning and
Code Compliance departments
have remained at city offices
rented at the 100th Street Center
nearby.
In a workshop Thursday, the
City Council directed staff to
investigate acquiring four more
trailers to house all city staff at
the events field and then end the

current City Hall lease.
At the regular council meet-
ing Tuesday, the council
approved a new lease at the
100th Street Center that includes
a termination clause, where the
city would lose approximately
$8,000 if it backs out of the lease
before it expires in two years.
Deputy City Manager C.J.
Geotis said the move would save
the city nearly $35,000 a year in
rent, which appeased all the
council members besides Pete
Worthington, who had safety
concerns.
"There's the potential for [a
hurricane] to take those trailers
on the 98th Street property and
stick them somewhere out in the
Gulf of Mexico," Worthington
said. "I think there are other
ways to save $35,000 a year."
Councilman Don Vasil, Vice
Mayor Marilyn Tempest "and
Mayor Chris Bull said they liked


The search committee to
replace City Manager Julio
Avael on Wednesday decided
to slim the list of 25 qualified
candidates to nine.
The remaining applicant's
credentials, according to their
resumes:
+ Lester Baird served as
county administrator for
Hendry County (population
39,000) from 1996 to 2007.
+ Larry Deetjen was city
manager of Deerfield Beach
(population 77,000) from 1994
to 2006 and president of
Harding Energy Systems from
1990 to 1994.
+ Gary Edwards is city
manager of Moberly, Mo.,
(population 14,000).
Edward Gomeau is town
administrator of Greenwich,
Conn., and served as director
of finance for Stratford, Conn.
+ Jeff Hathaway is director
of the Joint Interagency Task
Force South in Key West, a
federal group comprising
numerous agencies charged
with interdicting drugs on the


the cost savings and the idea of
all city offices under one roof.
"I like the idea of putting our
destiny into our own control,"
Vasil said.
Councilman Mike Cinque
said the move also is an impor-
tant first step to finally building
a new city hall on the events
field.
"This council tends to talk
and talk and talk about some of
this stuff for years," Cinque said.
"The community expects the
city to start making some deci-
sions."
The city has planned to co-
locate a new city hall along with
a new county library building on
the site, with the roughly $6 mil-
lion cost being split with the
county.
However, due to budgeting
constraints, the city may have to
hold off on building the city hall
portion for a number of years
while still partnering for a new
library building.

Michael Mahaney served
as Nassau County, Fla.,
administrator from 2004 to

James Malloy is town
administrator of Sturbridge,

sonal 25,000).
+ Kent Meyers is city man-
ager of Hot Springs, Ark.
+ James Scholl of Cudjoe
Key is range systems manager
of the Key West Tactical Air

It was unnecessary for
member Scott Fraser to object,
as he planned, to Avael's
application joining the stack
last Friday, as Avael withdrew
it himself. Avael's contract is
up in November but he's
agreed to'step down in August.
Now there will be back-
ground checks of the finalists
for criminal, civil, credit
records, educational and work

reference checks. Those
should take take two weeks.

Election change official


City Council
also rejects
mowing rules
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com


The Marathon City Council,
meeting in regular session
Tuesday, took the following
actions, among others:
Approved on second read-
ing an ordinance changing the
date of the City Council elections
from March to November to
coincide with other county, state
and national elections. The ordi-
nance followed a March non-
binding referendum in which
nearly 58 percent of voters want-
ed date change.
The motion passed 4-1, as it
did at first reading, with
Councilman Mike Cinque dis-
senting due to the fact that it
would increase the term lengths
of sitting council members by
eight months. Cinque recom-
mended the item be placed as a
binding referendum on the next
November ballot.
The next city election will
occur in November 2008 and
three seats will be up.
Failed to move forward 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 landscapers
maintaining property that Vasil
said is being maintained by many
property owners.
Vasil made a motion to


approve, and the motion failed
without a second.
Heard a report from
Community Services Director
Susie Thomas on recent bid
prices for upcoming phases of the
city sewer system.
The low bid for area four
(Sombrero/U.S. 1/Crane Point
corridor) was $16.7 million,
below the city's preliminary esti-
mate of more than $18 million.
The low bid for area six (Coco
Plum/ U.S. 1 corridor) was $9
million, below the city's estimate
of $7.5 million.
Thomas said the only bid for
the area four sewer plant was
more than $7 million, well above
the $4 million city estimate,
although the bidder was deemed
not responsive due to a lack of
bid information.
The council scheduled a spe-
cial meeting to discuss sewer fees
and costs at 6 p.m. June 5 and
July 12 at the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office hangar at Florida
Keys Marathon Airport.
Continued resolutions
approving modifications to a
development agreement with
Peebles Corp. for redevelopment-
of the Key Colony Bay Hotel.
Cinque pulled the items off
the consent agenda and said the
developer wants to propose a
plan to develop the required eight
affordable housing units on site.
Mayor Chris Bull argued that
language in the development
agreement already allows Peebles
to build the affordable units in
lieu of donating $1.6 million to
the city, and so continuing the
approval wasn't necessary.
Peebles representative Ed


Frost, apparently unhappy with
Bull's stance, said, "I'm disap-
pointed you're the mayor of
Marathon," before stepping away
from the lectern.
Directed City Attorney
Jimmy Morales to prepare a reso-
lution exempting Marathon busi-
nesses from a county ordinance
that requires businesses selling
alcohol to post signs warning
pregnant women of the dangers
of alcohol to unborn children.
Approved the U.S.
Conference of Mayors' Climate
Change Agreement, which urges
governments to enact policies
and programs to meet or beat the
target of reducing global warm-
ing pollution levels to 7 percent
below 1990 levels by 2012. This
goal was established by the
Kyoto Protocol, which the United
States did not sign.
Under the agreement, the city
will seek to conserve energy
through various ways including
building an energy-efficient city
hall to purchasing energy-reduc-
ing items such as compact fluo-
rescent bulbs and high-gas-
mileage vehicles.

Revenge attempt
gets the wrong man

Investigation by Monroe
County Sheriff's Office
Detectives has led to the arrest of
42-year-old Jeffrey Browning of
Marathon in connection with a
battery of a Big Pine Key.
According to the agency, the
victim called the Sheriff's Office
April 7 to report that two men
burst into his home while he was
sleeping and attacked him. The
34-year-old victim suffered cuts


and bruises and reported two
people left in a white pickup.
A neighbor of the victim rec-
ognized the truck as belonging to
Browning, with whom he had a
heated altercation a few days ear-
lier.
Browning reportedly said he
wanted them to beat up the man
he had the altercation with.
However, the two men went to
the wrong home, resulting in the
attack on the victim in this case.
Browning was charged with
criminal conspiracy, solicitation
and burglary with battery.

While plenty of resolutions
on Tuesday's Key West City
Commission agenda are eye-
catching, two sponsored by
Commissioner Mark Rossi are
likely draw the most attention
- or arguments.
The first would allow City
Manager Julio Avael to finish
out his duties and leave his job
Aug. 15. Avael would keep his
severance pay.
If the resolution passes, Avael
will help the incoming city man-
ager get acclimated to Key West
from Aug. 15 to Nov. 30 (the
search for a replacement is down
to nine people. See story, Page
16).
The resolution is essentially
a "compromise," according to
Rossi.
Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson is trying to fire
Aveal, who is slated for retire-
ment Nov. 30. This resolution
would allow for a smoother
transition, Rossi said.
"It makes good business
sense," Rossi said. "I hope
Morgan is on board... it's for the
good for the city."
He added that it's standard
procedure to "buy out" people
in city government just like it
sometimes is in the business
world and stressed the urgency
in establishing the 2007-08
budget by June.
Also likely a hot discussion
item Tuesday is the removal of
Seward Johnson's seven bronze
statues, named "New Friends"
from the Southernmost Point.
They were installed in March
for a 60-day trial period, and
that period is up.
"I know the other statues are
going to have to go," Rossi said,
adding that he hopes the City
Commission is behind him.
Johnson wants to install
another statue, that of Albert
Kee, who used to sell conch
shells, fresh fish and other sou-
venirs at the Southernmost
Point. Johnson has pledged
$10,000 toward that statue.
However, Rossi says doesn't
believe the Kee family will
accept the matching grant. As of


city raises.
Commissioner Clayton
Lopez, whose district is home
to the Southernmost Point,
declined comment on what he
thinks of the "New Friends"
statues, saying he wants to wait
for discussion at the City
Commission meeting. But he
did say he likes the idea of the
Kee statue because of its histor-
ical significance something
he said the Johnson's statues
lack.

SKatherine Kyle Timmons Child of Pigeon Key


Katherine Kyle Timmons passed
away in Venice, Fl. on March 27,
2007. Although she spent much of
her adult life in Naranja, Fl, she was
connected very closely to the tiny
island of Pigeon Key, having spent
her early years on the island with her
family. Her father was Robert T.
Kyle, the first bridge tender for the
Seven Mile Bridge when it opened in
1912. R.T. Kyle kept on as Chief
Bridge Tender until his death in
1927.
Katherine and her remaining fam-
ily stayed on at Pigeon Key until
about 1930. She and 2 brothers later
moved to Marathon and lived there
until about 1948. The Kyle family
was friends with the Parrish family.
Her mother was Leona Cavender
Kyle. Leona's other children were
Zollie, Tessie (later a school teacher
on Pigeon Key and in Marathon),
R.T. Kyle Jr., Annie and Kenneth.
Kenneth and Katherine were twins.
Katherine was bom in Naranja :'
1915, and came to Pigeon Key as an
infant. She spent the next 15 years
growing up on the island and attend-
ed school in the one-room building
on Pigeon Key. Because the Pigeon
Key school ended at 6th grade, the
Kyle children spent 9 months of the
year in Naranja attending school in
Redlands. When Katherine returned
to Pigeon Key in the summer, she
took her shoes off and never put
them on again until September.
Katherine always kept in touch
with Pigeon Key even after her fami-
ly left the island. Her last visit was
in 1998 as a guest of the Pigeon Key
Foundation when that organization
invited her to the opening of the
Pigeon Key Museum. This museum


is located next to the Bridge Tender's
house, her childhood home.
Katherine has been of great help
to the Foundation and Key's histori-
ans by contributing information
about life on the island in the railroad
years.
Katherine was mother to three
children. Janice lives in Mississippi;
Elizabeth is in Osprey, Fl., and son
Ricky in North Carolina. She had 10
grandchildren and several great-
grand children. They are interested
in locating relatives of the Kyle fami-
ly now out of touch. If any can be
found, the Kyle family can be
reached through Katherine's daughter,
Elizabeth Pitchford, 694 Clear Creek
Drive, Osprey, Fl. 34229 or Tessie's
son Robert Kyle Frentzel, Box 363,
East Marion, NY 11939.
Katherine Kyle Timmons may
well be the last person in the
Marathon area to be considered a
child of the Florida East Coast
Railroad era.

allow us to carry 50 to 60 cars."
The Walshes initially moved
to Key West in 2005, opening
Picasso Joe's art gallery on
Duval Street just in time for
Hurricane Wilma to ravage the
business.
With the need for quality
used vehicles at an all-time
high following Wilma, the
father-and-son team got into
the used-car business.
"My dad and I have always
been into cars. He'd always be
working on them when I was a
kid, there'd be 12 or 13 cars in
the yard," Walsh said. "It was
kind of natural for us to get into
the business."
The lot at 9200 Overseas


became vacant when Kia decid-
ed to transfer its dealership to
Key West six months ago. The
Walsh's Stock Island landlord
also owns the Marathon lot,
and asked the father and son if
they'd be interested in expand-
ing their business.
"We've been doing steady
business here since we've
opened, and we think there's at
least the same demand for qual-
ity used cars in the Middle
Keys," Walsh said.
Palm Motors is seeking to
fill multiple positions for its
Marathon location, including
mechanics, lot helpers and
sales staff.
More information about
Palm Motors is available by

The Palace Gardens Difference

For nearly 25 years, The Palace Gardens Assisted Living Community in Homestead has been known
as a leader in providing outstanding care to seniors. While our grounds and the campus are beautiful,
there are more than a few reasons why The Palace Gardens is different from all others.

1. Continuum of Care -
The Palace Gardens is part of The Palace
Family of Senior Living Communities which
offers accommodations that meet everyone's
needs, from Independent Living and Assisted
Living, to Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation,
and even Home Health. You can rest assured
that at The Palace, your needs will be met, no
matter what may happen in the future.

2. Palace Training &
Education Center
Because our residents come first, every
employee must reflect the higher standards
? of our communities. Based on Ritz-Carlton
procedures, a comprehensive orientation
program reinforces this focus. Regular training
.and educational programs continue so that
residents will always receive the very best
care and services.

.3. Local Ownership-
Founded in 1980 by Helen and Jacob
Shaham, The Palace is privately owned and
locally operated by these self-made individuals
who foresaw the need for quality senior
living environments. Their constant
.._ involvement today ensures the tradition they
.. .established for the communities and services
bearing The Palace name: only the best.

Looking south over the Keys Energy service area (Key West to Marathon), the tie line takes its place alongside fellow
engineering marvels the Seven Mile Bridge and Henry Flagler's historic railroad bridge.



Keys 'extension cord' hits 20


Before the Lower Keys transmission line,
outages and brownouts were common


Not many communities cele-
brate an anniversary for their elec-
tricity source. But customers pow-
ered by Keys Energy Services
who remember the times before
the tie line came online might.
May 8 marks 20 years since the
tie -line, or main transmission line
- or the extension cord that went
to sea connected the utility's
customers to the mainland power
grid.
Before then, homes and busi-
nesses from the Seven Mile
Bridge south through Key West
got their electricity from a Key
West steam plant (which is now
being redeveloped into luxury
condos).
But reliability was always an
issue, and outages and rolling
brownouts reportedly were pretty
common.
According to Keys Energy
spokesman Julio Barroso, the
story of the tie line began in the
late 1970s, when three engineer-
ing reports recommended con-
necting to the mainland power
grid for greater electrical reliabili-
ty.
Officials with City Electric
System (that's what Keys Energy
was called back then) went to the
Key West City Commission for
approval to issue a $50 million
bond. They also approached the
Florida Keys Electric
Cooperative, the member-owned
utility providing power from the
Seven Mile Bridge north to the


county line, for an agreement to
interconnect to the mainland via
its transmission lines.
The Key West City Commis-
sion granted approval to issue the
bond in November 1980, but
negotiations with the Electric
Cooperative proved to be more of
a challenge and were not finalized
until 1985.
While negotiations were under
way with the co-op, City Electric
began moving forward with con-
struction of the 138-kilovolt trans-
mission line from Key West to
Marathon.


On May 8, 1987, the tie line to
the mainland power grid began
operating.
Employees Frank Cartonia and
Richard Castillo stood by at the
Big Pine Key substation while
Terry O'Dell, one of the then-new
power system coordinators, coor-
dinated with Cartonia and Castillo
to energize the line at 1:56 p.m.
and connect customers to the
mainland power grid.
During the 1988 fiscal year, the
first full year operating with the
tie line, ratepayers saved $3.93
million compared to what they
would have paid had the electrici-
ty been completely generated
locally by the utility, according to
Barroso.

Mile Bridge (below) using Henry Flagler's historic railroad
bridge for support while an unidentified crewman (right)

their bases.

Storm prep


already starting


With hurricane season just
around the comer, organizations
that serve people with disabilities
are gearing up to help consumers
prepare for disaster and avoid
some of the awful experiences
seen in Louisiana and Mississippi
with Hurricane Katrina.
One such organization is the
Center for Independent Living of
the Keys, which provides out-
reach to encourage people to cre-
ate emergency plans and register
for the county's special-needs reg-
istry and evacuation assistance,
and helps rebuild lives after
storms.
When the National Council on
Disabilities met in Atlanta April
16 and 17, Center for Independent
Living Executive Director Brenda
Pierce gave a presentation on
emergency preparedness for peo-
ple with disabilities. The 15 coun-
cil members who are appointed by
the president and confirmed by
the U.S. Senate were seeking


input into ways the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
can improve their operations and
better serve all populations.
"Although our emergency
management people in Monroe
County and those working with
the special-needs registry here do
a great job, that is not the case in
,all areas of the country nor is it
the case following storms when
federal agencies and relief groups
from outside our area arrive. All
too often, our population is left
out," Pierce said.
Pierce is vice president of the
Florida Association of Centers for
Independent Living and has par-
ticipated the past two years in
Gulf Coast recovery meetings for
disability groups in Louisiana,
Mississippi and Florida.
For additional information,
call the Center for Independent
Living in Key Largo at 453-3491.

Health center doing medical followups


Preschools
and day cares
are revisited
It's beginning to feel a lot like
summer. But before students can
enjoy those long sunny days, the
Florida Keys Area Health
Education Center wants to help
ensure kids have clean bills of
health to better enjoy summer
activities.
Toward that end, center staff
plans to revisit day-care centers
and preschools to follow up on
previous medical assessments.


Tracey Codd, the center's
community health coordinator,
said the goal is to re-evaluate the
children and ensure parents or
caretakers pursued necessary fol-
low-up measures that were rec-
ommended. Also, any students
who were not in school during the
initial visits have another chance
to be given basic health screen-
ings.
In preschools, the children's
immunization history and height,
weight and body mass index are
reviewed. Also, vision and hear-
ing are tested; and teeth, ears,

education.
A $1,000 scholarship will be
awarded to a future Florida State
University student and a $1,000
scholarship will be awarded to
any student seeking higher edu-
cation. Students can see
Marathon High's college coun-
selor for an application.

As Keys Energy Services'
tree giveaway reaches its 13th
anniversary, countless Keys resi-
dents have long been reaping the
rewards of the native trees that
were given out in the early years
of the annual event.
Nancy D'Amato, a senior
marketing executive at Clear
Channel Radio, attended one of
the first giveaways in the mid-
1990s and received a gumbo
limbo, which has thrived at her
Staples Avenue home ever since.
Given that the tree is native to
the region, minimal watering and
attention is required to ensure its


prosperity and the shade it pro-
vides to help cut down on cool-
ing costs.
A few blocks down Staples
Avenue at the Grace Lutheran
School, a large mahogany tree
once stood that also started out
as a small potted plant at the first
Keys Energy giveaway, in 1994.
Sadly, in the early 2000s a severe
thunderstorm destroyed it.
But David Rose, a wood-
worker, salvaged the strong
mahogany wood and saw to its
eventual revival as a bathroom
vanity in his Flagler Avenue
home.
"The construction took
approximately two months to
complete," Rose said, "and it
needed a mere clear coat of var-
nish to bring out the wood's nat-
ural beauty."
The tree giveaway is part of a
nationwide public power pro-
gram called Tree Power spon-
sored by the American Public
Power Association. The national
goal is to plant one tree for every
public power customer for a total
of 16 million trees.
Keys Energy received-the
Golden Tree Award from the


trade group in 2004 for reaching
its goal of planting more than
27,500 trees, or one for every
customer it serves. But overall
more than 30,000 trees have
been given away locally.
This year, the giveaway is


May 5 from 8:30 to 11 a.m. at
Keys Energy's service building
in Key West and at the Cudjoe
Key diesel site on Blimp Road.
About 2,000 trees (1,000 at
each location) will be given out
on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Aquarius part


of surgery tests


The Pentagon
is developing
new technology
Associated Press

Doctors and scientists from the
University of Washington in
Seattle will get a glimpse of what
it would be like to do remote sur-
gery in space when a portable-
medical robot they created will be
tested next month in a Key Largo
underwater environment designed
by NASA to simulate zero gravity.
The portable robot, which can
be controlled over the Internet by
a human surgeon many miles
away, is- being developed with
money from the U.S. Defense
Department to be used to treat
wounded soldiers on a battlefield,
perform complicated surgery on
patients in remote areas of the
developing world and help sick
astronauts in space.
The difference between the
robot surgeon demonstrated at the
University of Washington last
week and others that are used
today in American hospitals
involves portability and commu-
nications, said Professor Blake
Hannaford, co-director of the UW
BioRobotics Lab.
All the portable parts of this
device weigh about 50 pounds
and can be transported and recon-
structed by non-engineers at
remote sites. Robot surgeons cur-
rently being used in hospitals
weigh several thousand pounds,
are not portable and can't be easi-
ly broken down and reconstruct-
ed.
Current medical robots also
were not designed to be controlled
from miles away.
When the mobile surgical
robot called Raven is in the
Aquarius Undersea Laboratory, at
Conch Reef about nine miles
south of Key Largo in 63 feet of
water, its robotic arms holding
surgical instruments will be oper-
ated by doctors in Seattle sitting in
front of .a computer screen and
holding onto moveable metal
arms.
The experiment will involve
sewing up a tear in a rubber tube
used as a simulated blood vessel.
The surgeons will also do a skill
test used to judge student doctors.


The surgeons' digital instruc-
tions will travel over a commer-
cial Internet connection from
Seattle to Key Largo, and then
through a wireless connection to a
buoy, which is connected by cable
to the Aquarius. Two NASA astro-
nauts and a NASA flight surgeon
will be in the underwater pod with
the robot.
In zero gravity, both the robot
and the patient will have to be
immobilized, and doctors will
have to deal with the different
ways organs and bodily fluids
move without gravity, explained
Dr. Mika Sinanan, a professor in
the department of surgery at the
UW Medical Center who has been
working closely with the project.
The researchers said a major
goal of the underwater experiment
is to show that the robot can be
dismantled, transported and set up
by non-engineers in the zero-
gravity environment.
NASA is paying for the under-
water experiment, scheduled for
May 7 to 18, but the rest of the
project is being paid for by the
Defense Department. Two gradu-
ate students were scheduled to
travel to the Keys with Raven on
Friday.
The robot was tested last sum-
mer in California's Simi Valley,
using an unmanned aircraft with a
wireless transmitter for communi-
cations.
Aquarius is operated by the
University of North Carolina-
Wilmington. It's often used for
astronaut training before space-
shuttle flights.

Passed ball
key to 3-2 win
over Bulldogs
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


It took two extra innings, a
dropped third strike and a catch
as deep in the Founders Park out-
field as a ball could go without
leaving, but the baseball Coral
Shores Hurricanes move on to
next week's state Class 2A
regional playoffs.
The Hurricanes nipped
Archbishop Carroll, 3-2, in a
nine-inning District 16-3A
Tournament semifinal thriller
Tuesday at Founders Park.
Beating Carroll qualified
Coral Shores for a spot iri the
Region 4-3A playoffs, which
begin Tuesday.
Coral Shores (19-8) lost the
District 16-3A title to Gulliver
Prep in a 7-2 game Thursday.
Coral Shores will travel to
District 15-3A winner LaSalle
(20-7) in Miami for the regional


quarterfinal.
LaSalle's Lions pulled a
shocker Thursday by defeating
Florida Christian, 7-6, in the 15-
3A title game. Florida Christian
ended the regular season as the
state's No. 1-ranked Class 3A
team and was considered one of
the best prep teams in America.
The Hurricanes dropped two
regular-season games to LaSalle.
"Our guys will be ready,"
Coral Shores coach Jeff Meyers
said. "We have the opportunity to
step up to the challenge."
The Canes earned the regional
bid with the nine-inning decision
over Carroll.
Coral Shores players swarmed
junior pitcher Chris Noble after
he notched a strikeout for the last
out against the Bulldogs in the
ninth.
"I felt good," Noble said,
despite the overtime work. "We
weren't gonna lose."
Alex Nobregas scored the
winning run on Stephen Fowler's
single in the top of the ninth

McCarthy ends
softball team's
playoff hopes
By DICK WAGNER

The Key West High School
softball team played host to a
state-playoff regional game
for the first time Tuesday
night.
An evening that began with
huge anticipation ended less
than two hours later in a 5-1
loss to Archbishop McCarthy
of Fort Lauderdale as the
Conchs concluded their first
season under coach David
Gootee with a 16-13 record
and their first district title.


Here is how the night
unfolded:
6:45: Red, white and blue
pennants, the kind car lots
have, flap over the grand-
stands at the Back Yard. The
field is bathed in shadows antd-
late sunshine, with white bases
staked on orange dirt and ban-
ners on the outfield fence pro-
moting a bank, a lumber com-
pany, a seafood restaurant, a
radio station.

his gray-uniformed team as

and teal, watch from their
dugout. Unfamiliar umpires

Cheryl Smith, CMC


City Clerk


Published Keynoter 04/28/07


Medina's double.
Gulliver's No. 8 hitter singled
in the bottom of the fourth. A hit
batter put two on with one out. A
fielder's choice was misplayed in
the infield, leaving the bases
loaded for Rams, who unleashed
his towering shot to left center.
It was the only time Cane
pitchers gave the slugger a chance
to swing, issuing him three walks.
The Canes, playing their sec-
ond district-tournament game on
their home field as the "visiting"
club by virtue of seeding, com-
bined hits from Alex Nobregas
and Smith with Gulliver's only
error to score one run in the fifth.
But in the sixth and seventh
innings, the Canes went three-
and-out, with three strikeouts and
a runner picked off first.
Gulliver took the lead in the
first, scoring two runs off a one-


hit rally. Cane starter Mike Rentz,
who handcuffed Gulliver for six
innings in a regular-season game,
gave way to Nobregas in relief
after three walks.
Nobregas struck out eight hit-
ters, allowing four hits and three
walks. "Alex pitched a great
game," Meyers said. "We didn't
give him much help."
Coral Shores outfit Gulliver,
six to five, led by Smith's 2-for-3
day. Lee Cash had an early single
but was caught going to second.
Stephen Fowler also singled.
"We didn't have many strike-
outs," Meyers said. "We hit the
ball hard but right at people."
The Canes did have some
defensive highlights. Gulliver's
first-inning rally was curtailed
when third baseman Chris Noble
threw to Cash at the plate to cut
down a runner.


Two days after playing a flaw-
less defensive game to beat
Archbishop Carroll, mistakes cost
Coral Shores a shot at the District
16-3A championship Thursday.
Gulliver Prep claimed the
crown, 7-2, as senior catcher
Danny Rams powered a grand-
slam homer that put the potent
Raiders too far in front.
"Too many unearned runs,"
Coral Shores coach Jeff Meyers
said. "We have just have trouble
getting by Gulliver."
Three errors, two hit batters,
eight walks and a wild pitch all
nicked the Canes. The four-run
shot over the Founders Park fence
by the strapping Rams in the
fourth inning was a dagger.
The Hurricanes had just scored
their first run in the top of the
fourth, getting back into the con-
test at 3-1. Brett Smith opened the
inning with a single but was
erased on a fielder's choice from
Ryan Biondoletti.
Biondoletti stole second and
came around to score on Rafael

(Carroll was the "home" team by
virtue of seeding).
Leading off the ninth,
Nobregas struck out but the
Bulldog catcher dropped the ball.
Nobregas took off for first, and
the Carroll throw sailed into the
outfield. Meyers praised
Nobregas' veteran savvy: "He
hustled down to first like you
should."
Fowler then laced a bouncing
shot past the Carroll shortstop as
Nobregas came all the way
around to score.
"I did feel some pressure, I'm
not going to lie," Fowler said. "I
can deal with it. It's fun."
Carroll's leadoff hitter in the
bottom of the ninth nearly tied
the game in a flash, launching a
shot high into the blue sky and
deep toward left center. Winds
gusting across the field made it a
tricky play, but sophomore cen-
terfielder Ryan Biondoletti ran it
down against the fence.
"I thought we were tied
again," Hurricane athletic direc-
tor Rich Russell said.
Noble closed it out by coaxing
a grounder back to the mound
and collecting his fourth strikeout
of the game.
Carroll managed 10 hits, three
of them coming in the first when
the Bulldogs scored one to take
the early lead.


"[Shortstop] Ray Ferro and
our defense made the difference
today," Meyers said. "We didn't
hit the ball like we usually do, but
we played a whale of a defensive
game."
Ferro had a hand in 11
putouts, including a double play
in the seventh that halted a
Carroll rally. Coral Shores'
defense did not commit an error.
The Hurricanes grabbed the
lead with two runs in the third.
Second baseman Brett Smith sin-
gled to lead off. Biondoletti dou-
bled to score Smith and tie the
game. Ferro slapped a fielder's-
choice ball that put the Canes
ahead.
Pitching and defense kept the
Canes in front until the bottom of
the seventh, when the Bulldogs
used two hits and a sacrifice bunt
to knot the game at 2-2. A double
play, Ferro to first baseman
Rafael Medina, got the Canes out
of the stanza.
Although Noble felt ill earlier
in the day, pitching coach Jorge
Bosque left him on the mound as
the game went into overtime.
"Chris was pitching a great
game," Bosque said. "And he had
only thrown 80 pitches. By then,
[Carroll pitcher Jeff Ryan] was
up to 120."
Brett Smith was the only
Hurricane with two hits on the
day. He had a double in the ninth
that sent Fowler home, but the
runner was cut down at the plate.

Wolverines chomp Conchs again, end season


Belen Jesuit
finishes Conchs'
season at 17-9
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

It took less than an hour and
a half for the Key West High
School baseball team to lose
- again to Belen Jesuit,
which for the second season in
a row denied the Conchs entry
into the state playoffs.
The Miami team's 4-1 vic-
tory Wednesday afternoon in
the District 16-4A semifinals
was its third over the Conchs
this season and fourth in a row
dating back to last year's semi-
final game.
There was optimism among
Conch fans after learning that
top-seeded Monsignor Pace
had lost to Mater Academy -
a team Key West beat twice in
the regular season in a
semifinal game Tuesday. All
the Conchs had to do was
defeat Belen to set up a victory
against Mater and ensure them
a home regional game.
But once again Key West
fell under the spell of Belen
senior left-hander Mauricio
Rodriguez, who allowed five
hits in out-dueling Daniel
Foltz.
"Obviously, he has owned
us the last two years," said
Key West coach Miguel
Menendez, referring to
Rodriguez. "I wish we could
get another shot [at Belen]
because I really believe we are
better than we play against
him."
As usual, Rodriguez also
hurt the Conchs with his bat.
His first-inning double gave
the Wolverines a 1-0 lead.
The score was still 1-0 in
the bottom of the fourth when,
with a man on base, Justin
Gonzalez lifted a fly ball that
the wind carried to the 380-
foot mark at Belen's small
park.
Center fielder Michael
Arencibia drifted back and
caught the ball as he reached
the fence. But the apparent out
turned into a home run as
Arencibia's glove, with the
ball in it, dropped over the
fence.
"The breaks didn't go our
way," Menendez said. "I


thought we actually hit better
than they did."
The Conchs scored their run
in the fifth on singles by
Charlie Walker-Yhap, Artie
Grizzle and Radier Gonzalez.
But Rodriguez, who struck out
eight, retired seven of the final
eight batters.
Gonzalez gave the
Wolverines who went on
Thursday to defeat Mater for
their first district title an.
insurance run when he hit
another homer, this time a long
drive to left-center, in the bot-
tom of the sixth.


'Next year
starts today.
How we
work in the

off-season
will
determine
how good

we will be.'
- Key West coach
Miguel Menendez


The game ended the careers
of three Conch seniors -
Foltz, Grizzle and Louie Pazo.
"Daniel Foltz had a great
career," Menendez said.
"Unfortunately, we didn't get
far enough into the playoffs to
really show how dominant he
is. Artie Grizzle had a good
career and was a big influence
for the younger kids this year.
Louie Pazo had the toughest
task of all, following Ralphie
Henriquez. He was tremendous
as a catcher and really
improved this year offensive-
ly."
Key West, which won its
llth state title in 2005, fin-
ished the season 17-9, a record
many schools would be
pleased with.
"I wasn't satisfied,"
Menendez said. "This program
is predicated on winning state
championships. We can't win
them every year, but we have


to do a better job of making a
run at the thing. I was happy as
far as the development of the


team." How we work in the off-season
Asked about next year, he will determine how good we

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO

SELL YOUR HOME?
The best home selling climate is when employment in the area is heTihfy.
Summer is a particularly good season for selling.
Pricing a home realistically is important, regardless of what time of year it is
placed on the market. Ask your real estate agent to tell you the selling price
of nearby-homes similar to yours. Check the average number of days on the
market for your area. Strategic timing can sometimes produce the best price.
Don't assume that a rising market will continue -indefinitely. It might be bet-
ter to take your profit now rather than continue to wait. If your home has
appreciated substantially, find out whether you meet the two-year test to
ensure you can take up to $250,000 in exemptions if you're single, or
$500,000 if you're married.

Dolphins lose in extra innings


Season's done,
but coach expects
big things in '08
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
baseball team's season ended
Tuesday in dramatic fashion,
with the Dolphins playing
some of their best ball of the
season and pushing the Palmer
Trinity Falcons into extra
innings.
But physical fatigue and a
few mental errors gave way to
a 9-5 loss for Marathon in the
first round of the District 16-
2A tournament in Miami.
Coach Luis Leal said he could-
n't be more proud.
"I couldn't ask for anything
else. No regrets," said Leal,
who had moments of frustra-
tion leading his talented but
young squad but not on
Tuesday.
"The focus was good to see.
It showed them if they take it
as seriously as they did in this


game, they have a chance to
really compete," he added. "I
think it helped them to see that,
and get excited for next year."
With no seniors on the team,
Leal has a lot to be excited
about, with the entire squad
eligible to remain for at least
another year.
Leading on the mound
Tuesday, as he did all season,
was sophomore Toby Eigner,
who had a career day with nine
strikeouts and three walks
while allowing eight hits.
Eigner held the potent
Palmer offense in check
through regulation and brought
a 4-4 tie into the eighth inning,
when a hand blister forced his
removal.
"It was unfortunate, because
he was getting people out left
and right," Leal said. "It was
one of the best games I've ever
seen pitched."
The blister forced Eigner to
cut his velocity and control,
and the Falcons capitalized
with two runs. Freshman
Thomas Ryan came in for


relief and allowed three more
runs.
The Dolphins, who amassed
about a dozen hits in the game,
put runners on in the bottom of
the inning but left them strand-
ed.
"It was two evenly matched
teams," Leal said. "But you got
to give Palmer credit. They
play a little more consistently
than we did."
Leading the offense was
junior J.P. McCabe going 3-
for-4. McCabe led the team
this year in batting average
(.457) and hits (21), but most
impressively went the full sea-
son 50 plate appearances -
without a strikeout.
"At any level, that's phe-
nomenal," Leal said.
Junior Sean O'Connor led
most other offensive cate-
gories, including slugging
(.630), on-base percentage
(.544), RBIs (10), home runs
(2), walks (10) and stolen
bases (8).
Junior Chris Garrett and
Eigner rounded out a potent
offensive foursome that should
give pitchers fits next season.

materialize with their blue shirts
and FHSAA patches.
7: Lineups are introduced to
about 300 people, many of
whom have to stand. Student
Kimmie Parker sings the nation-
al anthem. The game begins.
7:05: Conch pitcher Lindsay
Yochum strikes out the leadoff
batter her 100th strikeout of
the season, according to her
mother Kathy, who's seated with
her scorebook in the first row.
7:10: Still in the first inning,
the Mavericks, after an error and
an infield hit, have runners at
first and third with two outs.
"Shake it off," a fan yells.
Yochum gets the next batter to
pop out as the crowd screams
approval.
7:15: Key West goes down in
order in the first agamst hard-
throwing Brittany Pugh.
7:23: Kristen Babich gets the
first Conch hit, but she's left on
first base.
7:31: A double by Alex
Martinez sails over Babich's


head in left field and gives
McCarthy a 1-0 lead in the top
of the third.
7:35: Another run scores on a
Conch error. The Mavericks
have the bases loaded. Gootee
goes to the mound for a confer-
ence. "Somebody make a play,"
a fan pleads.
7:36: Yochum makes the next
batter hit the ball right back to
her for an easy out.
7:47: McCarthy's Laura
Saladrigas pounds a long double
to make it 3-0 in the fourth.
7:58: Nice defensive plays by
second baseman Jianna
Hernandez and center fielder
Ashley Henriquez end the fifth
inning amid loud cheering and
shaking of pom-poms.
8:07: Under the bright lights
the Conchs have two on with
one out. "Come on, Allison,
drive the ball," catcher Allison
Baker hears as she steps in. She
grounds to the shortstop, who
tags the runner coming toward
third and then throws to first for
the double play. Allison's father,
first base coach Bill Baker,
argues the call.


8:17: Things turn bleaker for
the Conchs as Saladrigas drives
in two more runs with a single to
make it 5-0 in the top of the
sixth. The crowd is quiet.
8:26: Hope is renewed.
Henriquez scores from first on
Heather Palladino's pop-fly dou-
ble in the last of the sixth. The
lead is cut to 5-1.
8:30: Babich smashes the ball
back at Pugh, knocking off.her
glove. She retrieves the ball and
throws to first for the inning-
ending out.
8:40: As students chant,
"Let's go, Conchs," the gum-
chomping Pugh walks the first
batter in the bottom of the sev-
enth, then gets an out.
8:45: Yochum lines what
looks like a single to right field,
but the right fielder throws her
out at-first.
8:47: Baker strikes out to end
the game. She flings down her
batting helmet and her father
scoops it up as he comes off the
field. Shouts of "Good job, Key
West" rain down on the Conchs
as they gather to contemplate the
end of their finest season.

Francis, Vihlen top 'Fever'


Full &Summe


She repeats,
he regains
his title form
Gianna Francis from Miami
breezed by the Girls' 14 and
under field at the April 14 and
15 Spring Fever Junior Tennis
Championships at the
Founders Park Tennis Center
in Islamorada.
It was the second year in a
row that Francis dominated her
brackets.
After earning a first-round
bye for being the highest-
ranked player, Francis defeat-
ed Camila Aime from Palmetto
Bay, 6-1, 6-1 in the semifinals.
In the bottom half of the
draw, Rea Lark of Sugarloaf
Key prevailed in a tough quar-
ter-final battle over Nicole
Jiminez of Homestead, 6-4, 3-
6, 10-8. A match tiebreak
determined that outcome.
Two hours later, Lark
returned to top No. 2 seed
Alexis Ferraro from Coral
Gables, 6-4, 2-6, 10-5 in
another match that went the
distance.
A beautiful but windy
Sunday morning final saw a
polished Francis take out Lark
6-2, 6-0 to repeat as champion.

Vihlen wins boys
In Boys' 14 and under
action, Homestead's Brian
Vihlen returned to Founders
Park with revenge on his mind;
he was 0-2 in his matches at
the Spring Fever last year.
Unseeded this year, he over-
came second-seeded John
Danaher of Marathon Shores,
7-5, 6-1, in the semifinals,
then hung on against No. 1 see
Joseph Echevarria in the finals
to get the tournament victory,
6-0, 7-6 (10-8).
In the Boys' 12 and under
division, the highest-ranked
and top-seeded player also
won handily.
Rafael Riera of Boca Raton
dismissed Emilio Alvear of
Marathon in the semis, 6-1, 6-
0. Riera then beat Islamorada's
Jimmy Rhyne in the finals, 6-
3, 6-2.
Rhyne has a four-year run
of reaching the finals at the
Spring Fever tourney, with two
wins and two runner-up finish-
es.
Tournament winners and


runners-up received glass
cobalt swirl vases.
The U.S. Tennis
Association-sanctioned event
was one of three held at
Founders this year. Melissa
Jackson oversaw the competi-
tion.
"It was a nice little tourney
this year. We may look to
change the dates for '08 in
search of more entries,"
Founders tennis pro Phil
Milford said.
"Also, I'd like to create a

Brossard's weekend
Thirteen-year-old Marathon
tennis player Marisa Brossard
had her best outing yet on a big
stage, playing the weekend of
April 14 at the State
Designated Tournament at
Cambier Park in Naples.
In the first round, Brossard
played Mattie Ahrens of
Naples and after falling behind
2-5 in the first set, found her
composure and stormed back
to a 7-5, 6-1 win.
In the second round,
Brossard lost to third-seeded
Courtney Colton of Davie, 2-6,


0-6.
Br6ssard said, "I didn't
even feel like I was there and
that isn't good."
In her first back-draw
match, Brossard avenged a
previous loss to Amy Lowther
of Seminole, 6-2, 6-1. In the
third round, Brossard avenged
another loss by beating No. 15
seed Shaunte Southern of St.
Petersburg (who had. beaten
Brossard on three previous
occasions) 6-3,6-1.
In the fourth round
Brossard received a walkover
victory as her opponent, Shea
Brodsky of Miami, fell ill.
In the consolation finals,
Brossard fell to another hard-
hitting opponent, Catalina Ene
of Boca Raton, 5-7, 1-6.

fourth and left Dade Christian's
field with a statement-making
18.0 win.
It was the largest margin of
victory and most runs scored in
any first-round Region 2A game
in the state.
"They drew walks, got key
hits, ran the bases well they
did everything," Frank said.
"They had 12 hits and 10 stolen
bases in that inning alone. It .was
simply amazing."
The scoring began on a two-
run single by Megan Gardner.
Then Shelby Kuck doubled in.
two more. Abi Meyer followed
with a two-run single, and
Sandahl Stephens drove in two
more.
Yari Alpizar drove in two,
Melanie Boyd walked in a run,
and Alexis Culver knocked a
two-run shot. Kelly Struyf drove
in the final runs.
Dade Christian switched
pitchers midway through the
inning, but it had little effect.
Seven Dolphins scored twice in
that inning, and every hitter
scored at least once.
"At one point, Megan
Longstreth was on second and I
was telling her not to run," Frank
said. "Next think I knew she was
sliding into horne. She said she
couldn't hear me and she wanted
to get closer."


While tremendous offense
ruled the game, the Dolphins
countered with flawless defense
led by pitcher Gardner, who
threw a two-hit shutout and was
backed up by no errors in the
field.
"We started to do the things

we needed to do all year long,
and everything just clicked,"
Frank said.
The Dolphins are clicking at
the right time, as they had to face
South Florida power Glades Day
(17-9) on Friday (results unavail-
able at press time).
Frank said win or lose, the
season has been a successful one
for the Lady Dolphins, who will
only graduate three seniors this
year and should only improve
into next season.
Still, Frank said this season
still isn't over.
"Right now, we are four wins
away from a state champi-
onship," Frank said. "We play
like we did that fourth inning,
and we can play with anybody."

The journey of an artist


Each Keys season
brings new joys,
artistic success

I'm writing to share some per-
sonal experiences about the
journey of an artist a
"snowbird artist."
I've always felt a gypsy in
my soul and loved the adventure
of traveling. That led me to a 35-
year career as an international
flight attendant with TWA.
Traveling the world, I tucked
my experiences into a kaleido-
scope of treasured memories.
After retiring in 1999, Ifinally
found the time I needed to
explore my creativity. The mem-
ories of travels and experiences
from around the world inspired
me in many ways, and my inter-
est in watercolors soared, lead-
ing me to new roads and new
adventures. Part of my dream
fell into place.
I believe in following your
muse, seeking your dreams and
listening to that inner voice, that
little place where creativity is
born and ideas come together. I
wanted to put all those things in


motion so
my dream
of becom-
ing a suc-
cessful
artist might
come true.
There.
S are many
pieces that
come
together to
make an
Julie artist suc-
JoyceRehbock cessful and
I've experi-
enced some of those pieces
falling into place this season
here in the Keys. Some of the
things that really excite me about
painting watercolors here are the
light and the wonderful colors of
the Keys that makes me want to
buy every tube of paint to cap-
ture it all.
I began my interest in water-
color in 1990 with local art
classes and was addicted from
the very first class. Soon I joined
the Florida Keys Watercolor
Society to meet other artists and
to be able to participate in the
annual workshop and the show
the society provides each year.


During these annual workshops,
I was able to paint under the
guidance of nationally recog-
nized instructors and my excite-
ment continued to grow.
I continued to take classes
and my art was accepted into a
number of local galleries. Soon
more pieces were put into place.
and I felt my dream coming true.
The experiences of traveling
the world were put into a differ-
ent perspective as I traveled into
the world of watercolors to dis-
cover so many new ways to
express my creativity. It amazes
me how one door opens and
leads you through another to
unlatch your creativity.
In 2004, I had a desire to
teach a beginning watercolor
class. I have always enjoyed team
work and working with people
and I wanted to share the knowl-
edge I had acquired and bring
people to the art of watercolor.
Teaching proved to be so
exciting and another side of cre-
ativity to explore.
Then, in 2006, I conducted a
"demo day," where I offered
people the opportunity to watch
me complete a painting by
observing the process with an
overhead mirror. I did a morning
and afternoon demo that day
with 20 people at each session. It
was so exciting for me to share
that experience.
This season has been full of
inspiring times as I have once
again explored something new to
pique my interest and offer some
challenges. I have continued
teaching two classes a week for
six-week courses in January and
February.
At the end of the classes there
was still an interest by some of
my students for additional
instruction, so I had the idea of
conducting a one-day workshop.
So another piece of my dream
came into play in mid-April, as
13 students came to share a day


of painting together. Having a
little more time with each person
was great for me and I was
impressed with the work they all
did that day, and proud.
Throughout the season, there
have been the annual shows at
the Marathon Community
Theatre for the Bougainvillea
House Gallery and the Florida
Keys Watercolor Society, where
I was awarded a ribbon for my
watercolor "Paradise." Also, I
took part in a few outdoor shows
where I truly love the interaction
with the viewers.
In April, I started classes for
children and have found this
experience to be incredible.
There are four girls, ages 9
through 11, who seem to enjoy
the world of watercolor and have
progressed quite rapidly in just a
few classes. Planning these
classes offers me a chance to go
back in time to a place where
life was simpler and to remem-
ber the things that interested me
as a young girl.
My final project for this season
is teaching a troop of 23 Daisies
and Brownies a quick introduction
into watercolor at their May meet-
ing this week. What could be
more fun than that!
Soon, my time in the Keys as
a snowbird artist comes to an end
for this season, as I make plans
to return north for the 20th time.
I'll carefully close my studio
to make it as storm-proof as pos-
sible and head up to Long Island
to the hamlet of Islip where I
will open my northern studio
make the rounds to the New
York galleries. There, I have to
think of a different color palette
and shift my thinking for com-
positions and colors of Long
Island. In the back of my mind,
however, I'll still hear the rustle
of the palm trees and the sound
of the sea and I know I'll miss
the colors of the Keys.
I feel blessed in so may ways,
my soul is happy and at peace,
my paint brush dances with the
anticipation of a new watercolor
to paint, my dream is coming
* true and still there are pieces
falling into place.

Julie Joyce's work can be
seen in Marathon at the
Bougainvillea House Gallery,
D'Asign Source, Kennedy Studio
and in Islamorada at Gallery
Morada and the Redbone
Gallery. She can be reached at

'Bat Boy' is a must-see


Season closer
a riotous show
at the Red Barn
It starts off with plenty of
goofs on goofy redneck
trademarks.
Costuming by Leigh
Hooten is brilliant if such a
word can be used for back-
ward baseball caps, flappy
blonde wigs, padded beer bel-
lies and vintage housedresses.
Within.minutes, however,
you realize you're square in
the middle of a coal miner's
"Romeo and Juliet," with
implications for the NRA,
Virginia Tech and that old-
time religion. Not content
with Shakespeare, the script,
by Keythe Farley and Brian
Flemming, drags in "My Fair
Lady" and "Oedipus" as well.
Award-winning
director/designer Rich
Simone directed "Bat Boy,"
and plays four roles as well.
In fact, so many of the cast
play multiple roles, that it
seems like they are carrying
extra wigs in the back pocket
of their bib overalls.
The musical spins out of
an over-amped fictional char-
acter invented by Dick Kulpa,
the former editor of the super-
market tabloid Weekly World
News.
The story first appeared in
1992 and tells of a half
human, half bat creature cap-
tured in a West Virginia cave
and who later escaped.
Regular sightings after that


-e provided a
"news"
series that
sold lots
of papers.
SSee the
video of
the latest
(Nov-
ember
2006)
S sighting at
www
Judi Bradford -.weekly
world
news.com/bat_boy. You
can also share your sighting.
Now Bat Boy is an under-
ground pop culture icon with
his own Web site, musical
play, MP3 soundtrack and
Wikipedia make-believe
genealogy.
The latest sighting in Key
West is at the Red Barn
Theatre through May 26 as a
riotous season closer like last
year's "Rocky Horror Show."
The show tweaks a twisted
skein of humor that has the
audience shrieking; mean-
while the cast is noted for its
extraordinary screams.
Key West High School
graduate Spencer Gates plays
Bat Boy and puts the same
strength and presence into
that character he put into
Bobby Strong in "Urinetown"
at the Waterfront Playhouse
earlier this year and into
Eddie in "Rocky.Horror
Show" at Red Barn last year.
Technically now living in
New York City, Gates
returned to his hometown
stages for this theater season.


disturbia


Shia LaBeouf
Carrie-Anne Moes
David Morse
Sarah Roemer

Rated: PG-13


Cast members Laurie
Breakwell, Kristi Davis,
Mark Filosa are new to the
Red Barn's stage.
Musical Director Jono
Mainelli has worked with
Vincent Zito's Keys Pops
Orchestra and Waterfront
Playhouse in Key West and
with the scriptwriter in
Northeast theaters.
The script tosses off non-
sequitors like "common
anomaly" along with the
broad humor. The Laurence
O'Keefe lyrics walk you
through hillbilly social life (in
a step-kick, step-kick gait)
until you feel at home there.
Likewise the slow-witted (and
selective) "Christian charity."
Among campy West
Virginia chorus lines and
operatic narratives, a story of
grossly ignorant cruelty and
nurturing kindness highlights
some of the current events we
have all been struggling with
this past week.
With almost everyone in
the cast armed and dangerous
in one scene, the questions of
access to guns and our soci-
ety's acceptance of what some
pundits call a culture of vio-
lence wavered through the
overlying humor like a deadly
watermark on Virginia Tech
letterheads.

Country music
folks know how
to party right

was drunk the day my mom
got out of prison and I went
to pick her up in the rain but
before I could get to the station
in my pickup truck she got run
over by a damned old train.
Why is everybody still aspir-
ing to write the perfect country
and western song when accord-
ing to David Allen Coe, it's
already been written by Steve
Goodman?
The songwriters who inspire
us to drink, get drunk, stay out
all night and steal your mama's
man are in town for a few
rounds and the annual Song-
writers Festival in Key West.
It happens to be right up there
on top of my checklist of
favorite things to do because
some of my best friends are tor-
tured songwriters. Take crazy
Cujo, for instance, back before
there was such a thing as plat-
inum status he had six gold
records for songs he had written,
which is a major milestone for
the terminally insane.
And speaking of songwriters,
I remember the time I rode on
Coe's tour bus. A songwriter's
songwriter, he penned many a
hit including "Take This Job and
Shove It." He showed me his tat-
toos, he then showed me his
pterodactyl and it was tattooed
too and then he proposed mar-
riage. The songwriter offered
two road whores to our mutual
friend the soundman in exchange
for my company. I was incensed
over the offer why I was
worth at least three of them!
Merle Haggard's been on my
mind lately, one, because Jimmy


*Buffett
recorded
the Hags'
"Silver
Wings" on
his new
CD, and
A two
because the
Country
Music Hall
of Famer
was hon-
Sammie Mays ored as an
icon at the
CMAs, and three because I have
a Merle Haggard adventure that
I'm just dying to tell you about.
So I thought I'd share it with all
you country music lovers here in
the Florida Keys for the
Songwriters Fest, and for those
of you who could give a damn
but enjoy a good story neverthe-
less.
Around midnight, my flight
landed in the Country Music
Capital of the World and for the
life of me, I can't remember how
I got to my hotel room either
one too many miniatures or too
exhausted or a combination of
both. My assignment for the
National Enquirer was to attend
as many Country Music Awards
parties as humanly possible and
to generate as many leads as
possible. I was an expert at this
part of my job.
First, I needed some Zs so I
scrounged a couple of quarters
from the bottom of my hobo bag
and put them into a worn-out old
rusty magic fingers on top of the
night stand, it shook me into a
coma.
At 3 a.m. I woke up to the
mattress jerkin' me around. I
must have been suffering from
some sort of dain bramage
brought on by the busted
machine because I couldn't fig-

ure out where I was. I turned on
the light and looked around the
ropm and it offered no clue. I
knew I hadn't had a stroke
because I was able to get out of
bed and open the window but
still I couldn't put the pieces
together.
Ah-ha! The cover of the tele-
phone book will shed light on
this dilemma. I opened the draw-
er alongside the bed and nothing
but the Holy Bible with some-
one's forgotten stash of cocaine
hidden between the pages. While
holding the Bible I had a revela-
tion by osmosis this must be
the room where you come to for-
get whether you want to or not.
Figuring the graveyard shift
to lack a sense of humor, I wor-
ried that if I called the front desk
and ask the question Where
am I? that they might send
over the men in the little white
coats or they might think I'm
some sort of a prankster and
send security up for a little visit;
orange has never really been my
favorite color.
Instead of flushing the drugs I
buzzed the front desk.
"I know this may sound
funny," I said, "but I'm suffering
from exhaustion and can't figure
out where I am." Intently listen-
ing to the tone of her voice so
I'd know which visitors to
expect, the clerk replied, "You're
at the Holiday Inn in Nashville
and I have a message for you.
Your rental car will be delivered
at 8 a.m. and Cujo would like
for you to ring him in room
666." And then it all became
very clear my God I'm in
Nashville and Cujo is the devil.
I guess it was inevitable that I
would run into Cujo since
Nashville was his stomping
grounds and there was a plethora
of CMA parties for him to crash.
In his heyday he was one hell of
a songwriter. He knew every
producer, singer and songwriter
in Nashville but somewhere
along the line he matured into a
real idiot.
Early morning came and I
needed jumper cables to get my
butt in gear. With my eyes barely
open I was looking for a strong
cup of Ellie Mae Clampett cof-
fee and a cat-head ham biscuit
when who do you think I ran
into? Yep! Cujo. He was whoop-
ing it up in the lobby with June
SCarter's daughter Rosie and they

Karma Truck barrels down scene


New band has
some familiar
singing faces
By CLAUDIA MILLER
L'Attitudes Contributor

If you've been keeping up
with Micah Gardner
(www.islandmicah.com) this
season, you'll know that he's
started a new band called Karma
Truck with Nick Kimball, Luke
Ptomey and Alex Caldwell. The
band's been a fixture up at Rum
Runner's (mile marker 84, 664-
2321) every Thursday night from
7 p.m. to 11 p.m. The crowd has
been steadily growing over the
months, and they now have avid
fans (I count myself as one).
I recently interviewed Micah
and Nick about the creation of
Karma Truck and their plans for
the band, including their upcom-
ing tour of the north.

L'Attitudes: Why the name
Karma Truck?
Micah: My brother Greg and
I played as Karma Truck for
about a decade. I've been driv-
ing the name around for a while
but the passengers have been dif-
ferent. It goes back to the philos-
ophy that you should do good
things, be good people. If you
don't, karma will run you over. I
think that's a fitting name for the
kind of music that we're playing,
the crowd that we're going after
and the vibe of the people we
love to hang out with.
L'Attitudes: What kind of
crowd are you going after?
Micah: People who want to
have a good time but want to be
aware of what's going on in the
world good people. You're
not going to see too many mosh
pits at our shows. Our audience
gravitates to the hippie side of
life. I like hippie. I like that kind

of Sunrise,' at www.cdbaby.com.


of energy where you don't have
- to always worry about somebody
getting into a fight.
Nick: We get a lot of environ-
mentally friendly people and
bluegrass people. We have a
very wide variety of fans-
young, old, lawyers, bikers, kids.
L'Attitudes: How would you
describe the sound of Karma
Truck?
Micah: We call it
Islandgrass-a combination of
island folk and mountain blue-
grass.
L'Attitudes: What do you
each bring to the group?
Nick: Micah's songs tell a
story.
Micah: I'll create a different
identity for myself to tell the
story through because I'm not
brave enough to put myself in
the shoes of the person singing,
but if there's hope or some sort
of positive emotion in there, it's
kind of cool.
Nick: My lyrics are a lot
more personal and emotional, so
with our powers combined...
Micah: Like Wonder Twins.
Nick: We can tell a story,


have it be a fun song and also
have a touch of personal identity
as well.
Micah: Alex is easy to be in
a band with. He's the lead singer
of a band up in Miami called
Flavella, and he plays Flute in an
alternative rock band... very dif-
ferent from Karma Truck where
he plays bass guitar to island
bluegrass. Luke is one of the
most talented drummers in the
Upper Keys. He's heading to the
Berkeley School of Music in
Boston next fall. His drum solos
kick ass.
L'Attitudes: What are your
plans for creating new songs?
Nick: We're going to cuddle
a lot.
Micah: I'm into feet.
Nick: Which is good because
mine are kind of dry.
Micah: I have quite a few
unfinished songs, and Nick has a
bunch of songs that he's in the
middle of too. Maybe at some
point we'll overlap those and get
ideas from each other to finish
them.
Nick: I see our music coming
together for the first time, and


it's going to be a unique mix. I
see it developing and our sound
changing as we get older. I'm a
little nervous to call it one thing.
Actually, I think the name for
our new album should be
"Motion Lotion" [singing]
motion lotion, I love that potion.
Micah: He doesn't stop. It's
like this all the time. You've
never heard him speak on the
microphone? It's funny. I have to
hold him back.
L'Attitudes: How do you
keep the crowd engaged at your
shows?
Micah: I'm one of those peo-
ple who, I always want every-
body to have a good time,


because if they are, I am. So I'm
constantly scanning the crowd
and reading it. If somebody has
a look on their face like they're
just not digging it, then, I try to
ask them, what do you want to
hear? I think if you're getting
paid to go to a bar and entertain
and make the bar or club money,
then you've got to be flexible
enough to play to the crowd -
make them happy.
L'Attitudes: You play any
covers at your shows?
Micah: As little as possible,
but definitely you have to do
covers. We do creative covers.

Run to 'Bat Boy'


ARTBEAT / From 3

Although in fact the wan-
ton offing of one cast mem-
ber after another is more -
often executed through dif-
ferent weaponry, but with
the same careless and incon-
sistent lack of regard for
life.
Watching the mindless
meanness directed toward
Bat Boy also brings up the
bullying issue that seems to


be a part of mass murder.
The play serves up terror,
tenderness, rage, revenge,
extreme silliness, ecstasy,
fear and loathing in an envi-
ronment of hilarious satire.
Simone demands that you
see it and I think it's a good
idea. You need a good laugh
at the end of the season.

Merle Haggard goes for a ride


GONZO / From 4

had been up all night long drink-
ing and-poppin' pills and what-
ever else they could get their
hands on and they looked like
buggers.
They pawed, hugged and slob-
bered on me. To get Cujo to quit
humping my leg, I threw the dog
a bone and slipped him the holy
cocaine. Laughing like hyenas he
and Rosie ran off to the devil's
den and I heard Cujo yell as the
elevator door closed, "I'm gonna
stay up for the rest of my life!"
The Blue Bird Caf6 was a
good place to have a little fun
while poking around for a story.
It's a place where up-and-com-
ing country artists like Garth
Brooks and Kathy Mattea show-
cased their songwriting talents
and were discovered.
On the drive over, I couldn't
help laughing at how clever I
thought I was in ditching those
two knuckleheads when I pulled
into the Bluebird. The parking
lot was jam-packed and inside
not a seat to be had. I was just
settling into a standing position
in the comer when in between
songs I heard a raspy burnt-out
voice shout from across the
room, "Hey Sammie, over here!"
It was the knuckleheads and
they had added Tanya Tucker to
the mix and they were plastered.
The holy cocaine earned me a
coveted seat at one of the best
tables in the Bluebird and as
much Jack Daniels as I could
throw down and later throw up.
Sometime during the night's
festivities a caustic conversation
circled round the table, we all
took turns sharing our thoughts
on what country meant to us
when it came to Tanya's turn,
with Cujo egging her on, she


climbed up on the table and said,
"I'll show you what country
means to me", hiked up her
skirt, squatted and created a
masterpiece. "Now that's coun-
try!" She declared pointing at
her creation. We got booted
from the Bluebird.
Making a late night parking
lot appearance outside the
Bluebird was none other than
Merle Haggard. He was standing
in the shadows whizzing on a
truck tire, "Hey you little whore
you, where do you think your
going? he said.
"I just got kicked out, so I
guess I'll head on over to
Tootie's," I said.
"It's my birthday," Merle
said. "Give me a ride and I'll
show you Nashville."
I unlocked the door and the
legend climbed into the passen-
ger's side of the rental car. When
I looked over at him I couldn't
help thinking to myself, "I've
captured Merle Haggard, some-
body took a s**t and I came out
smelling like a rose!"
Merle and I hit several
honky-tonks where we drank on
the house and listened to his
songs on the jukebox. He was
talking about some trashy little
trailer in the woods when the
morning sun popped up over the
horizon. Unlike me, the air was
cool and crisp, Merle was totally
haggard. He asked me to drive
him to the trashy little trailer and
buddy was his description ever.
accurate. As I was standing out-
side taking it all in, the trailer
door flew open denting the out-
sidewall and a woman madder
than a banty rooster stood in the
doorway glaring at Merle as if
she wished he were dead.
Without making eye contact
he squeezed past her and went
inside. She gave me the go-to-


hell look and followed him in.
Merle perked up and his
demeanor sweetened, "You
baked me a birthday cake darlin'
and it's a nice cake too," he said.
He tried smooching her on the
cheek, she wasn't having any
part of it. From the paper decora-
tions I gathered she had a party
planned and he was a no show.
"Oh you like this cake don't
you Merle? It's a nice cake isn't
it? She looked around and
grabbed the first movable object
she could lift which was a sack
of potatoes, and like a railroad
worker slinging a sledgeham-
mer, she two-fistedly swung the
potatoes over her head sending
cake flying to all four comers of
the room. Wiping cake from his
face, Merle eyeballed his birth-
day present, a fancy new cow-
boy hat that was on the table
next to the remnants of the oblit-
erated cake and said, "What a
nice hat! I really like this hat
darlin'!"
"Oh you like this hat don't
you Merle?" She said with her
nostrils flaring and her chest
heaving, "You think this is a
nice hat, don't you?" and
dunked it to the bottom of the
fish bowl.
The writing was on the wall:
This was a great country song in
the works and I knew better than
to interrupt the process.
Cast of characters: Rosie
Carter died in 2003, the same
year her parents June Carter and
Johnny Cash died; Tanya Tucker
cleaned up her act and became a
mom; and Cujo is still writing
the occasional song while check-
ing in and out of insane asylums.

Grusin, Harrison
debut musical at
Marathon theater
By DICK CONKLIN
L'Attitudes Contributor

he Marathon Community
Theatre is gearing up for
its first world-premiere
production, "Clouds Over the
Sunshine Inn." Written by two
Key West locals, Ben Harrison
and Richard Grusin, the musi-
cal's setting is a successful chain
of hotels catering to health-con-
scious travelers.
The owners of the Sunshine
Inns discover that although their
"Nouveau Restaurantes" have
some killer desserts on the
menu, their popularity has suf-
fered among the health food-
craving clientele. The challenge
is to figure out a way to sell
more of the lusciously fattening
treats. The plot thickens.
It takes a special kind of
writer to write a comedy or
musical, someone with a great
sense of humor, dialogue and
music. Or all of the above, as in
this case. Harrison and Grusin
bring a wealth of experience to
the Keys theater scene.
Harrison wrote "Undying
Love," the true story about
Count Carl von Cosel, who


worked as a technician in a Key
West tubercular ward. He fell in
love with the beautiful Elena
Milagro Hoyos, stricken with an
advanced case of tuberculosis.
Von Cosel, determined to cure
her with his own unconventional
methods, failed, and Elena died.
Heartbroken, for two years he
worshipped her grave. One
moonless night, he exhumed her
body and took it home with him,
and lived with her for the next
seven years.
Harrison also produced a
musical based on the "Undying
Love" book, which ran at the
Appelrouth Grill playhouse.
Or how about the true Keys
story of how former Monroe

County Sheriff Allison deFoor,
who in 1989 descended on a
Rockland Key property belong-
ing to a code enforcement
inspector, hoping to break up a
cockfighting pit? Everybody in
the Lower Keys knew about the
"surprise" raid, so the only ones
on hand to greet the sheriff were
the chickens. With 300 fighting
cocks in custody, their fate
became the focus of the story.
Remember the song "I got
those low down, dirty, chicken
pluckin' blues," from The
Poultry Operetta? Again, the
writer was Harrison.
Harrison said the idea for
"Clouds Over the Sunshine Inn"
came to him while working on
another project rebuilding a
home.
"Actually it gave me lots of
time to think about it for a
year and a half. Writing a play is
not as hard as coming up with
the concept."
Harrison has a strong back-
ground in music, playing his gui-
tar for 16 years in Key West,
including many gigs at the Bull
on Duval Street. He also co-pro-
duced and starred in "A Musical
Tour of Key West," a CD that
features more local music and
humor in the form of Harrison
ditties such as "Treasure
Salvors," "She was Pickled,"
(about the aforementioned
Elena), and one about the memo-
rable (and real life) character -
and fire chief'and drug pusher
- named Bum Farto.
Co-writer Grusin brings to
the production his own Keys act-
ing experience, having appeared
in several local plays and
movies. He also teaches diving,

'I just like to play'


KARMA / From 7

People who don't listen to the
radio are going to like our cov-
ers. If you listen to the radio,
you probably aren't going to
have even heard the song before.
I like to do a reggae version of
"War Pigs" by Black Sabbath.
L'Attitudes: What kind of
music has influenced your
work?
Micah: We're both huge
Wilco fans. That music changed
my life. It's the most honest
music that I've heard in a while.
Their approach is so poetic. Jeff
Tweddy's voice for me, you
think it's going to fall apart
every song. But somehow he
always makes it through. He's
got the kind of voice like an old
man telling a story.
Nick: That's why we want to
start smoking a lot of cigarettes.
And drinking whiskey.
Micah: We could gargle with
sand. I have a whole back yard
full. We both listen to a lot of
different kinds of music and
study it, as opposed to just what-
ever's on.
L'Attitudes: What are your
plans for traveling this summer?
Nick: We're not playing on
any of the actual stages or any-
thing, but we'll be set up in the
parking lot at the Bonnaroo
Music Festival in Tennessee.
Micah: I think we need to
get some really cheap guitars
and the last night have like, gui-
tar wars and smash them.
Actually, Nick and I are headed
up to Maine for July through
October.
Nick: I know a plethora of
musicians in Maine, and we're
hoping that between all of those
people and the two of us, we'll
have some sort of combination
maybe even an acoustic
thing-percussionist, stand up
bass, banjo or we might find
a bass player and a drummer and
really rock out.
L'Attitudes: Where will you
be playing?
Micah: Festivals, outdoor
venues, cities, bars, clubs, coffee
house, back yards.
Nick: Bar mitzvahs.
Micah: Weddings.
Nick: I want to play clubs -
bars that I know in Maine that
are hippie dives with a lot of
folk musicians.
Micah: I'll play anywhere. I
just like to play. It's music, and


it's a good time. I think it's pret-
ty rare that you meet another
musician that has ideas and val-
ues life the same way and has
morals and ethics, things that
aren't always found these days.
I'm stoked.
Nick: We've both done so
many crazy jobs, and here we
are getting together finally and
playing tunes. It's kind of funny.
Micah: If this doesn't work
out, I'm going to be one of those
guys carving coconuts into man-
atees and selling them for $3 on
the side of the road.
Nick: I'm going to become a
stripper.
L'Attitudes: What do you
want to bring back with you
when you come home next sea-
son?
Nick: Our goal for the sum-
mer is to write and record a new
album and hopefully have it
ready for next season.
Micah: I know that for me,
I'm going to start writing stuff
that's a little more global mind-
ed. I'd like to start hitting on
things that make people think
about the bigger picture because
I'm just in that stage of my writ-
ing. Plus, you can only sing
about a palm tree so many times.
You've got to sing about the
pine tree.
Nick: He has a lot of songs
about palm trees, and I have a
lot of songs about pine trees.
We're going to have to start
making our own trees.
Micah: Crossbreeding trees.
Nick: We think Virginia's the
best place to plant them.
