filing a false tax return for failing
to report the $29,000 bribe and
Sas facing three years in prison.
He, was expected to testify
against Hendrick his friend
for some two decades but
died in November.
Another former Hendrick
friend, political consultant
Randall Hilliard, testified
against Hendrick and was given
immunity.
Prosecutors never alleged that
Hendrick profited from the
$75,000 Marathon businessman
Marvin Rappaport paid to
Hilliard in 1996, when
Rappaport was trying to jump-
start redevelopment of the for-
mer Hall's Fishing Camp in
Marathon into a 79-room resort.
But he helped negotiate
London's $29,000 share of that
payment. London helped win
County Commission approval
for the building permits for what
later became a Hampton Inn. It's
now a time share.

by the district's facilities
instruction director, Fred
hat the original 911 call
from Barnes Alarm
S.


Rappaport was never charged
due to the statute of limitations.
In the background of
Hendrick's three-week trial was
an even more colorful character:
Pritam Singh, a one-time hippie
who became a Sikh and then a
major developer.
Never charged with a crime,
Singh was mentioned in closing
arguments by prosecutor Brenda
Morris, who referred to him as
Hendrick's "cash cow."
The feds won the cooperation
of Hilliard the self-pro-
claimed "prince of darkness -
who paid the bribe after collect-
ing in fees from Rappaport, and
testified the bribe was orches-
trated by London and Hendrick,
a partner at the time in a high-
powered law firm with then-U.S.
Magistrate Judge-Hugh Morgan.
While cooperating with the
federal government, Hilliard
recorded phone conservation
and in-person meetings with
Hendrick, including at Singh's
50th birthday party in Vermont.
In one of his most self-
incriminating statements,


"I'm talking to my facilities
guy to find out who told him
Barnes made the call," Acevedo
said in a phone interview.
Greg Rainer, a Bames
employee, said the Barnes system
didn't "go into alarm," meaning it
wasn't electronically notified of
the fire, until 9:27 a.m.
Company officials called the
school to confirm there was a fire
at 9:29 a.m., and then called 911
operators at 9:31 a.m., Rainer
said.
Rainer said if someone pulled
the fire alarm at the school, the
system should have been imme-
diately triggered. Strickland said
the teacher in the classroom
where the fire started pulled the
,alarm.
"The alarm was pulled imme-
diately," Strickland said.
She said the fire was caused
when a student lost her balance
and knocked a piece of paper
onto an electric light bulb.
Barnes Alarm Systems staff
were at the school "checking the
system to see what failed," Sims
said.
"It's a mystery at this point
what caused the time-sequence
delay."


Hendrick told Hilliard: "I'm sure
no one would counsel me to sit
here and talk with you because it
would be considered witness
tampering."
Hilliard also testified that
Hendrick helped concoct untrue
"legitimate business" explana-
tions for the $29,000 that
London used to pay a house lien
in Ireland.
The. defense, led by Miami-
based lawyer; Ed Shohat, ham-
mered at the credibility of
Hilliard..
But London's wife of 24
years, Elaine London, gave dam-
aging, voluntary testimony as
well. She said Hendrick persuad-
ed her husband to take a trip to
Ireland to be "out of sight, out of
mind."
Hendrick, who took the stand
in his own defense, explained
that he told London to do so for
health reasons not to avoid a
grand jury subpoena.

This report was supplemented
with material from Herald
reporter Cammy Clark.

No crime found


GRAND KEY /From 1

the fourth floor, where the boiler
room is located. That room was
found to be the source of the car-
bon monoxide that seeped into
Room 416 and killed Lueders
while he was reading in bed.
The city pulled its certificate
of occupancy and the 216-room
resort was closed from Dec. 29 to
March 1.
An investigative summary
released by the State Attorney's
Office is a compilation of reports
from investigations conducted by
the state Fire Marshal's Office
and the Key West Police
Department.
The findings:
State fire marshal "inspec-
tors found no maintenance or
inspection logs for the domestic
water supply boilers. Inspectors
also reported the boilers have
never been inspected by state
officials, as required by law."
"The vents to the door of
the boiler room had been covered
with plywood and sealed with
silicon, which prevented fresh air
from entering the boiler room."
The document also says the
boiler room's exhaust pipe was
altered, and "should be straight,
at a certain height, and allow air
to enter from 360 degrees. The
exhaust pipe in place contained
an elbow" and prevented proper
exhaust, according to the report.
The fire marshal's report
also explained the wall between
the guest room and boiler room


was improperly sealed.
Assistant State Attorney Val
Winter described the incident as
a "terrible tragedy," but said the
resort's action and inactions
did not meet the standards of
"conscious intent to harm" or
"gross and flagrant negligence."
Faulty repairs on the boiler
room performed by resort staff
would not be sufficient to bring
the case before a grand jury
according- to Chief Assistant
State Attorney Jeff Overby.
Prior to Lueders' death,
Nathan, Jody and David Smith of
Iowa stayed at the resort Dec. 21,
and were later hospitalized for
carbon monoxide poisoning at
Lower Keys Medical Center.
Winter said the Key West Fire
Department concluded their car-
bon monoxide poisoning was a
result of a trip the family took to
.the Dry Tortugas. The vessel the
family took to the island, the
Fast Cat II, had engine prob-
lems, causing the family's sick-
ness, according to the fire mar-
shal's report.
After a police investigator
met with the owner of the Fast
Cat II, the investigator found no
correlation between the family's
poisoning and the engine compli-
cation, according to the police
report.
State Attorney's Office
spokesman Matthew Helmerich
said the engine problems created
a reasonable doubt, and greatly
limited the ability of investiga-
tors to prove the Smiths were
poisoned at the hotel.

Part-time resident
charged in drug case

A former Illinois attorney
who's a part-time Key West res-'

after pleading not guilty to fed-
eral charges he supplied drugs to
young women and transported a
boy across state lines to
California for sexual purposes.
Lowell Thomas "Tom" Lakin
- the namesake of one of the
St. Louis area's most prominent
personal-injury law firms -
was charged in a seven-count
federal indictment unsealed
April 23, when he was freed on
$250,000 unsecured bond.
A federal judge in East St.

to remain under electronic mon-

Prosecutors accuse him of
cocaine dealing and consump-

August 2002 and again over a

RATS / From 1

these non-native rats, which can
grow to nine pounds and may
pose a threat to the sensitive
South Florida and Everglades
ecosystems if they ever escaped
the Keys.
Hardin said the ongoing feder-
al and state eradication plan,
already months in the making
and nearing $200,000 in total
costs, hit another snag earlier this
year when funding and workers
from the U.S. Department of
Agriculture ran out.
But a $40,000 FWC grant has
revitalized the project, which
Hardin said will continue with
more data from the USDA
National Wildlife Research
Center in Fort Collins, Colo.,
where the rats are being studied.
"We want to try and figure out
better ways to attract them to our
bait stations," Hardin said. "Right
now, what attracts them also
attracts a lot of other non-target
species."
Hardin said about 600 of the
1,100 planned PVC-tube bait sta-
tions have been set up around res-
idential neighborhoods, where
the rats appear to be congregated.
The pipes are about 5 inches
wide and curved so that only the
slender and limber rats can reach
the peanut-butter bait, although
Hardin said he's seeing too many
raccoons and other animals
snooping around.
The stations were supposed to
be laced with zinc phosphide tox-
icant last month, but now Hardin
said the poison won't be used


until all the stations are set some-
time in mid-May.
"We will send letters out when
we know the projected start
date," Hardin said. "It's really
important to us that residents
know what's going on."
At a public meeting last
December, residents voiced con-
cerns over potential accidental
poisonings of pets and other
wildlife, such as feral cats.
Several residents have denied the
placement of bait stations On their
properties.
"To me, there's other things to
spend the money on," Grassy
Key resident Nancy Auten said.
"This has been going on a little
bit too long, and I don't know
why they just can't trap them
without using poison."
Hardin said other animals'
scents in the traps repel the rats,
plus many rats are shy and will
never go near the metal-cage
traps. He said research shows bait
stations are the most effective
eradication strategy.
The Gambian rat problem
reportedly began sometime
between 1999 and 2001, when a
Grassy Key woman was breeding
the rats, an African species, to
sell to pet stores and eventually
let them escape.
Gambian rats elsewhere in the
country were linked to a monkey
pox outbreak in 2003, and the
species was made illegal for trade
in the U.S. The rats are now a
"prohibited species" by the FWC,
and only researchers, exhibitors
and those with stringent biosecu-
rity can possess them with a per-
- mit.

New direction needed

to finance housing

Sticking its collective hands into the fire pit, the Marathon City
Council will take up the issue of impact fees again.
Or it may not, if Mayor Chris Bull succeeds in moving the
Tuesday agenda item to a later workshop.
Two weeks ago, on first reading, the ordinance to establish the
impact-fee structure triggered a flash fire from real estate inter-
ests and others who fear this as an unnecessary burden at a time
when new construction has virtually ground to a halt.
As city staff tried to explain the hard work done by the
Planning Commission and others during workshops, they were
cut off mid-sentence as various council members juggled this
political hot potato.
What became pretty clear was that previous agreements
between the city and developers to help finance or build afford-
able housing have been widely ignored.
Only two developers who signed those agreements have actu-
ally put shovels in the ground, the Singh Co. and Marlin Bay.
The council inveighed against the pattern of broken promises
and asked city staff to bring back a report on every development
agreement and the status of affordable housing commitments.
Early on, the Marathon council insisted that developers set
aside 10 percent of the units for workforce housing or donate
$100,000 per unit required. That became 20 percent or $200,000
per unit.
And, surprise, still very little to show for all that huffing and
puffing.
We think city Planning Director Fred Gross has it about right
in his interview in today's Keynoter:
"I think everybody is clear there is a need for affordable hous-
ing, and this way [through development agreements] isn't work-
ing."
Now the onus passes to the council to get it right this time,
whether that's Tuesday or at a later workshop.
To use a familiar quote: "It ain't getting' any cheaper."

No alarm is cause for alarm

A report about a delay in reporting a classroom fire at
Plantation Key School raises alarms.
The company providing alarm services to all Keys schools
managed to finally phone in the fire alert 20 minutes after fire-
fighters had already extinguished the blaze.
Without quick action by staff and Islamorada Fire Rescue, this
could have been a serious disaster.
Now that school officials are alerted to the problem, we trust
the alarm company and district administrators will take every
step.to ensure no repeat of this scary scenario.

Some water-use rules make absolutely no sense


EDITOR:
I find it amazing that with possible permanent
water restrictions on the way, some of the more
obvious ways of saving water are being ignored.
How about pool covers? How much water is
lost because of all the pools evaporating all day
and night long? I found it strange that while I
can't water my lawn, I could empty and refill my
pool endlessly. Not that I think anyone does that,
but there are no restrictions on pools at all.
How about shutting off fountains and water-
falls in pools? Lots of evaporation there.
Especially those waterfalls.
How about (gasp) not letting all those devel-
opers build whenever and wherever they like?
Bigger homes use more water. More landscaping,
more to clean, more pools. Knowing that will
never happen, how about an alternative?
Xeriscaping. Force developers to use native


plants that can do well in this environment with
the rainfall we get.
I guess it's easy for me to adapt to, as I have
always conserved water, having grown up in a
desert. I don't water my lawn. I rent, but if I
owned, I would rip it out. I didn't move down
here for a lawn. All of my plants are in pots, the
majority of them herbs and veggies that I eat.
I get annoyed when there is no common sense
used in making rulings. As with other issues,
such as affordable housing and trailer-park dis-
posal, there seems to be a lot of "Let's throw the
dart and whichever idea it sticks to is what we'll
use" mentality.
Yes, this is the Keys and things are different
down here. That doesn't mean that irrationality
must rule.

Board's ouster of Tropic chief was inappropriate


EDITOR:
Following the canonization of George Cooper
at the Tropic Cinema last week, Michael Shields
and I were approached several times by attendees
who commented how gracious it was that Cooper
mentioned Michael at the ceremony and had'
expressed regrets that he was not present.
For the record, Michael Shields was not invit-
ed. And in my opinion, any complimentary men-
tion of Michael was no more than flimsy spin in
hopes to regain the goodwill of those who remain
appalled by the Tropic board's treatment of
Shields as well as by that board's refusal to
provide accountability for its actions.
SThe news that Cooper vacated the chairman's
seat to be replaced by a new board member with a
friendly face, a PR background and no connection
to the bad blood between community and organi-
zation speaks volumes.
Remember, Shields was fired without cause,
based on a performance review for which there
existed no performance criteria. He has yet to
receive an explanation from the Tropic board and
he was refused severance. The board dangled a
new contract in front of him, one it never intended
to honor, meantime changing the locks on the
doors.
When, on the night of Shields' dismissal, I
questioned the board's attorney about the cause for
his dismissal, this attorney replied that the board
was not required to provide cause. I asked if there
had been criminal behavior on Shields' part.

Chinese food could wait
EDITOR:
This is in response to the letter, "Fatal crash
shouldn't have held up food delivery."
The person adding to the traffic snarl by order-
ing Chinese food to be delivered should have her
IQ questioned before Monroe County deputies.
Emergency vehicles need to get in and out of an
accident area.
Perhaps distracting a working officer with a
food delivery driver isn't the most intelligent idea.
Laura Angier
Key Largo


Answer: No. I asked if it was about money had
Michael Shields mismanaged theater money.
Answer: No.
Shields' firing was about visibility who was
getting visibility, and who was not. And it was
about power.
Once upon a time, I thought Cooper and
Shields were a great team, Cooper as the nuts-and-
bolts practical foundation, Shields as the visionary
counterpart, who totally immersed himself in the
genre and the organization.
I held my tongue for a year because I thought it
inappropriate for me, Shields' partner, to publicly
engage in the blame game. But now that I have
started...
Two nights before Shields received the call that
ended his proudest life's work, two Tropic board
members, both of whom I considered people of
good character, sat with Shields and I for over an
hour at a celebration, sipping champagne and hap-
pily talking about what had been accomplished
and what was still to come.
Did these two already know what was coming
down the pike that night? If they did, I applaud
them on their poker faces.

City's proactive in energy plans


EDITOR:
Citizens of Marathon should
applaud the City Council for its
unanimous vote authorizing
Mayor Chris Bull to sign the U.S.
Conference of Mayors' Climate
Change Agreement. It's the first
step in a process to reduce green-
house emissions by the city.
The move was spearheaded by
Bull, who is committed to meet-
ing the challenge of global warm-
ing. This means addressing every-
thing from building an energy-
efficient city hall to purchasing
energy-reducing items such as
compact fluorescent bulbs and
high-gas-mileage vehicles;
The mayors' Climate Change
Agreement, initiated several years
ago by Seattle Mayor Greg
Nickels, is a bipartisan effort by
more than 360 cities to take
action in a void left by the feder-
al government.
The document urges the feder-
al and state governments to enact
policies and programs to meet or
beat the target of reducing global
warming 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.
STo achieve these goals, the
group urges all governmental
bodies to "reduce the United
States' dependence on fossil fuels
and accelerate the development of
clean, economical energy
resources and fuel-efficient tech-
nologies such as conservation,
methane recovery for energy gen-


eration, waste to energy, wind
and solar energy, fuel cells, effi-
cient motor vehicles, and biofu-
els."
One of those who spoke in
favor of the resolution, T.J.
Patterson of the Florida Keys
Electric Cooperative, said his
own company has already taken
steps in this direction by purchas-
ing biodiesel fuel from a supplier
on the mainland. Patterson said
that not only does the co-op save
10 cents a gallon by purchasing
the fuel, but also has greatly
reduced emissions of carbon
dioxide.and sulfur dioxide.
Councilwoman Marilyn
Tempest summed up the feelings
of the council when she said the
resolution "just makes good
sense."
There are a variety of steps
Marathon can take to meet the
reduction targets, including pro-
moting transportation options
such as bicycle trails, incentives
for carpooling and even more
public transit. The city can also
increase the use of clean, alterna-
tive energy and make energy effi-
ciency a priority through build-
ing-code modifications, retro-
fitting city facilities with energy-
efficient lighting and urging
employees to conserve energy
and save money.
I congratulate Marathon for
taking this important step and
look forward to the city's contin-
uing efforts to conserve energy.

Thank a teacher this week


EDITOR:
National Teacher Appreciation
Week is celebrated yearly during
the first full week of May, this
May 6 to 12.
Sponsored by the National
PTA, Teacher Appreciation Week
is a great opportunity for people
in our community, parents, and-
students to show their apprecia-
tion to teachers. Teachers not only
spend many hours in the class-
room, but outside their class-
rooms preparing lessons, evaluat-
ing progress, counseling and
coaching our students. This week
gives all of us a chance to let our
teachers know they are part of
something great, helping shape
our children's lives, and that all
their hard work is noticed.
Activities are being planned at
both Stanley Switlik and
Marathon High and Middle
schools; give them a call to see
how you can get involved.


And please, take some time
during this week to send a teacher
a small gift; offer to volunteer in
their classroom; or just send a
note or e-mail, letting them know
you appreciate the job they do.
every day.

Legislators monkey around,

we're left holding-the bill


Have you heard the story about the
monkey and the coconut?
Depending on which version, the tech-
nique is used to catch monkeys employ-
ing coconuts as the trap.
A hole is bored in the coconut, food
placed inside and the coconut staked to
a sturdy tree. The greedy monkey sticks
his hand into the hole bored by the trap-
per, eager to grab food inside.
With first clenched, the monkey can't
extract its hand and is, thus, trapped by
greed. Release the food and the monkey
can escape.
This anecdote strikes me as the proper
way to react with word from Tallahassee
that $20 million in sewer
funding promised by state
officials and even Gov.
Charlie Crist is not coming.
The funding made it
through the Senate side of the
Legislature, but failed to sur-
vive on the House side.
As you'll read in today's
Keynoter report by Alyson
Crean, the snub prompted
state Rep. Ron Saunders to
resign from the House
Environmental Protection
Committee. Wayne
He did so after watching the Keynotel
committee chairman, Stan
Mayfield, salt away $18.7
million in water-project funding for
Mayfield's home district in Vero Beach
Surprise they don't call it pork bar-
rel politics for nothing.
Which is what makes the House
Speaker Marco Rubio's drive forelimi-
nating property taxes so galling, when
you learn he was part of the Miami-
Dade delegation that raked in tens of
millions in. pet projects.
As reported this week by The Miami
Herald's capitol bureau, the haul tops
$150 million.
Reporter Yudy Pineiro quotes veteran
Miami lobbyist Rob Book as saying that
in his 34 years working with lawmakers
in Tallahassee, he has "never, ever, ever,
ever" seen Miami-Dade get as much.
So at the same time Rubio and other
House members preach tax reductions,
they certainly don't seem averse to
grabbing for their share.
Add to this the Legislature's other big
budget initiative, which shifts $546 mil-
lion in school funding back to property
taxes.
Eliminate the legislative legerdemain
with wording, and they just foisted a
$546 million increase in state property


taxes.
Only here's the best part: The local
school boards will get the blame for this
tax hike because it comes in the state
funding formula as the required local
share.
Gus Barrera, chairman of the Miami-
Dade School Board, told the Herald
"that goes against everything they [law-
makers] have been trying to do."
A drop-off in state sales tax collec-
tions is causing this shifting of the tax
burden.
A cooling economy, fewer tourists,
and a decline in big-ticket spending-
means Florida is getting less revenue
from state sales taxes.
Knowing that, can some-
one please explain the House
speaker's gambit to elimi-
nate all property taxes and
shift the burden entirely to a
high sales tax?
So the pretense of reduced
taxes is sounding a bit hol-
S low about now.
Oh, and did I mention the
other grand initiative ham-
mered out by our illustrious
state legislators?
/arkham Failing to complete their
Publisher work on tax reform, they did
manage to pass a- bill that
will allow Floridians to be
buried with their pet.
No less a legislative heavyweight than
Jacksonville's Jim King, former Senate
president, pushed for the measure
because he wants to be buried with his
pet dog's remains cremated and placed
in an urn inside his coffin.
Florida cemetery regulations prohibit-
ed animal remains. But King made sure
to fix that this session.
Too bad he couldn't knock some sense
into his fellow lawmakers and. pass out
tax reform, or fix the windstorm insur-
ance bill, which has been heavily lob-
bied by the insurance industry hoping to
undo reforms passed during January's
special session.
Which brings us back to the monkey,
the coconut and the greedy hand.
Perhaps Saunders' idea for a state
bond issue holds out some hope for
eventually funding Keys wastewater
projects.
But we can't help but think that Keys
taxpayers will wind up being the mon-
key. And we're pretty sure there's not
even any food left in that hollowed-out
coconut that has us chained down for
the foreseeable future.

Impact fees get another look


Report: City
getting nothing
from developers
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council is
slated to resume discussions of
possible impact fees to help fund
affordable housing in the city -
as a city report shows redevelop-
ment has resulted in almost no
affordable-housing contribution.
However, Mayor Chris Bull
said he may instead try-to sched-
ule a \ workshop instead of vet-
:ing the issue at the City Council
meeting, scheduled for a new
start time at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at
the Nlarathon Government
Center.
Two: weeks ago, Realtors
lambasted the fees they said
could virtually halt building in
the Keys. The council voted to
table the ordinance and instead
investigate the status of units
and cash promised under
approved development agree-
ments.


TAX REFORMS

REWARD HOMEOWNERS
The Federal Tax Code has improved the taxpayer's ability to profit by selling a principal
residence. Prior to 1997, the "rollover" allowed taxpayers exemption from capital gains
taxes on the net profit from the sale of a residence if they used profits to purchase a bigger
and better home.

Homeowners over the age of 55 were given a once-in-a-lifetime exclusion from taxes on
profits of up to $125,000 on the sale of their principal residence. Compare those tax breaks
with the new arrangement that replaced both the rollover and the one-time exemption.
The Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 exempts a single homeowner from the obligation to pay
capital gains tax on the profits from the sale of a primary residence of up to $250,000.
Married homeowners who file taxes jointly are allowed to exclude up to $500,000 in prof-
it. Homeowners who have lived in the home two out of the last five years can take this
exemption every two years, a plus for those who are planning to "buy up".
The tax dollars you gain can be used any way you want.

Specializing in Florida Keys real estate since 1984, Patti has lived, worked and played in
the Keys all her life. She has been named as Chairman of the 4th district Advisory
Committee to the Tourist Development Council, graduate and Board Member of
Leadership Monroe County, and a member of Islamorada Acquisition Advisory Committee.

Island Villa Properties, Inc

^<$i<3^S^

Planning Director Fred Gross
had included a detailed report of
those developments at the last
meeting, and he said he would
bring the same report Tuesday
showing virtually no contribu-
tions made by developers.
"The report and the ordinance
are coming back in the exact
same manner as before," Gross
said. "Hopefully, we can begin
discussing it and I can get some
sort of direction from the coun-
cil."
The report lists 15 projects
approved since 2003 that include
a total of 771 new or redevel-
oped residential or transient
units and 48,433 square feet of
commercial floor space.
The council had previously
required that new development
or redevelopment projects pro-
vide 10 percent of the total num-
ber of units as affordable or a
donation of $100,000 per
required affordable unit. That
formula later changed to 20 per-
cent and $200,000 per unit.
According to the report, the
developments should provide as
many as 91 units of affordable
housing or $12.35 million, or
some combination of units and
cash.
Gross reports that so far, one
unit and a 2,810-square-foot dor-
mitory have been built at the
Singh Co.'s Tranquility Bay
Resort. Singh has also pulled
eight permits for units at the
Boathouse development, and the
developer of the Marlin Bay
Yacht Club has pulled eight per-
mits for on-site units.
Gross said many of the other
projects have stalled due to a


slow real estate market, and
most of the development agree-
ments allow 10 years before per-
mits have to be pulled.
The report states that if the
proposed impact fees had been
assessed, the city could have col-
lected as much as $31.4 million
that would be earmarked for
affordable housing preservation
and construction.
"I think everybody is clear
there is a need for affordable
housing, and this way [through
development agreements] isn't
working," Gross said. "We need
the money, and we have to build
housing. This [impact fee] is a
good way to generate that
money."
The proposed fees range from
$1 per square foot of new resi-
dential development up to
$50,000 per 1,000 square feet of
new tourist-based commercial
development.
When added to the current
fees for roads, parks and recre-
ation, environmental lands, life
safety and others, 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.
A February 2006 study by the
Florida Impact Fee Review Task
Force commissioned by the state
Legislature shows Marathon's
fees would be exceptionally
higher than fees assessed by
other Florida counties and
municipalities, which charge an
average of between $1 to $999 to
build a 2,000-square-foot home.

Enrollment decline could mean layoffs


Non-tenured
teachers could
be let go
By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com


With a projected decrease in
the number of students in the_
Monroe County School District
for the 2007-08 school year,
some non-tenured teachers are
being pushed toward the chop-
ping block as the district works
on determining how much fund-
ing schools will receive for
teacher salaries.
"We're expecting lower
enrollment next year overall,"
said Monroe County School
Board member Debra Walker,
which will more heavily impact


the Lower Keys than the Upper
Keys.
But that doesn't mean it won't
affect Upper Keys schools,
Walker said.
She said Plantation Key
School and Coral Shores High
School have a lower number of
projected students. for the
upcoming school year.
The district hasn't finalized
its budget yet, but will base the
budget on a declining number of
students, she said, which could
mean a decrease in personnel.
"We fund our schools based
on how many -kids are going to
be there," Walker said. "If we
don't have [as many] kids to
teach, we have to offer tenured
teachers jobs first."
Ron Martin, the principal of


Coral Shores, said the current
enrollment of the high school is
around 720 students and the pro-
jected enrollment for next year is
716.
He said he recently informed
two teachers that their contracts
would not be renewed for next
year due to declining enrollment.
However, he also said the pro-
jections are inaccurate and that
he expects enrollment to increase
to about 775, which would affect


the final funding allocations the
school receives from the district.
The two teachers whose con-
tracts were not renewed might be
invited back after the school's
allocations are finalized, he said.
Annette Martinson, principal
of Key Largo School, said her
school's population is "holding
steady."
However, she said she did
have to reduce the number of
exceptional student education, or


ESE, teachers by one because.
Vanessa Strickland, principal
of Plantation Key School, said
her school's enrollment, which is
about 610, is projected to go
down by 30 to 40 students.
She said the school would
lose one regular education
teacher and one ESE teacher
next year. They have already
been informed that their con-
tracts will not be renewed,
Strickland said.


Keys briefs


Twelve are indicted
for migrant smuggling

A federal grand jury has
indicted a dozen people, includ-
ing two from Key West, alleged-
ly involved in a Cuban migrant
smuggling ring following more
than a yearlong investigation.
Eleven of the defendants
were arrested Tuesday, when the
indictments were handed down.
One person remained at large.
The case stems from the U.S.
Coast Guard's interdiction of a
boat in February 2006, carrying
22 Cubans including four
minors.


According to the indictment,
in early February, 2006, Frank
Barrios of Miami offered
$50,000 to a man to drive a go-
fast boat and smuggle the
Cubans from the island.
Days later, on Feb. 20, Coast
Guard officers intercepted the
boat at sea.
A subsequent investigation
led officials to use an informant
to help them interdict a second
smuggling boat in December
2006 as it headed toward Cuba.
The same group of defendants
organized that voyage, accord-
ing to prosecutors.

FWC plans Keys


trap workshops


Plan would OK
their removal
following storms
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission has
scheduled a series of public
workshops to get feedback on a
proposed plan to help fishermen
of spiny lobster, stone crab and
blue crab recover their traps fol-
lowing major storms.
The plan would let licensed
trappers designate people to
recover and possess their traps
when the governor and FWC
declare an emergency. That's
now not allowed.
The plan also would exempt
*local, state or federal officials
from having to get FWC
approval before removing traps,
derelict traps and trap debris
from areas where trapping is
prohibited.
The workshops, all of which
will take place from 6 to 8 p.m.,
are:


May 14, South Miami
Community Center, 5800 SW
66th St., Miami.
May 16, Key Largo School
Media Center, mile marker

Sick turtles on the mend in Marathon


Seven admitted
to the hospital,
eating better
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Nelson, Gabriel, Blackfoot
Jack and' the rest seem to be
recovering from a rash of ill-
nesses that have affected local
sea turtles.
"I have high hopes for every
one of these turtles," said
Whitney Crowder, animal care
coordinator at the Turtle
Hospital in Marathon.
"They're all eating and seem
to be great candidates for
release," she said. "Their infec-
tions are going down and
they're floating better."
Seven loggerhead sea turtles,
all considered "sub adults" who
weigh around 90 pounds, were
checked into the Turtle Hospital
in a 10-day span in April.
Crowder was en route to
pick up one sickly turtle from
the Upper Keys when she got a
call that another one in the area
needed help, she said.
When cleaned, the turtles are
so similar in age that they look
nearly identical to the untrained
eye.
In recent days, hospital staff
has received reports of a couple
deceased turtles, but were not
certain if they were related to
the other incidents.


"Normally we see this kind
of thing in February, when it
gets cold," hospital manager
Sue Schaf said. "The turtles get
lethargic and have trouble find-
ing food."
The newly arrived logger-
heads seem to have consumed
an excess of sponges from the
sea floor, normally a minor part
of the turtles' diet.
Schaf said. there was no
apparent reason, but worried it
could mean a decline in the tur-
tles' normal food sources -
mainly crustaceans and squid.
That left them with difficulty
swimming, and could have
caused some digestion prob-
lems and infections. Turtles that
cannot submerge are more vul-
nerable to predators and boat
strikes.
The influx filled the isolation
tanks at the Turtle Hospital, and
raised the feeding bill for squid
fed to the 39 turtles now in tem-
porary or permanent residence.
Most of the newly ill turtles
arrived from the Upper Keys,
but some were located off the
Middle Keys.
"We need to get the word out
to boaters to be on the lookout
for turtles that are behaving
strangely," hospital founder
Richie Moretti said.
People finding a sick or dead
turtles should call the state hot-
line (888) 404-3922 -
before handling it. Turtles are a
protected species.

"In a famous siege, the battle
of Estonia, the 101st Airborne
was surrounded by Germans,"
Cintron said. "In a sense, that's
where we are now. People in
mobile-home parks are surround-
ed. They're being told there's no
hope, give up. If you continue to
allow these mobile-home parks to
be cast aside at the rate they are,
it's hopeless and it's over."
Cintron and other affordable-
housing advocates hope the com-
mission will approve a six-month
moratorium on redeveloping the
parks to allow county staff to fin-
ish drafting an ordinance aimed at
protecting mobile homes.
The proposed moratorium is
likely to show up on the May 16
County Commission agenda for a
vote.
If approved, it would be the
second freeze on redevelopment
of mobile-home parks in the
Keys. A year-long moratorium
ended a year ago. .
While it was in place, the
county established an ordinance
that requires all redevelopment
projects to include 30 percent
affordable housing.
The meeting Wednesday was
just a workshop, meaning the
commission could not vote on the
measure. However, the heated
debate there doesn't bode well for
the commission approving the
moratorium at its May 16 meet-

ing, also in Key Laigo.
"The sky is not falling," said
Commissioner Dixie Spehar, not-
ing that only seven of the Keys'
85 parks are seeking redevelop-
ment. "There are many park own-
ers who have absolutely no desire
to redevelop."
Mayor Mario Di Gennaro said
a moratorium is not the solution,
that it would violate the property
rights of park owners.
"These property owners did
not buy deed-restricted affordable
housing," Di Gennaro told the
Keynoter. "How can we force
them to do something with their
land?"
Di Gennaro owns the 200-
plus-unit Aquarius Mobile Home
Park in Homestead.
"That's why I know some-
thing about mobile-home law,"
he said.
"Renters have a right to move
out or the parks. Why wouldn't
the park owner have the same
freedom and rights?" Di Gennaro
said.
"Property rights is the bottom
line," Spehar told the commis-
sion.
"We can sit here and do noth-
ing," Coimmissioner Sylvia
Murphy said, "and five years
down the road look around and
say, Oh my God, what have we
done? Or we can come up with a
moratorium, a way to stop this
and give ourselves six months to
talk about a solution."
Commissioner George
Neugent says it's vital the county
do something to preserve the
parks, contending they are the
last vestige of truly affordable
housing in the Keys.
"It's like fathering a child," he
said. "You don't walk away from
that child. You have a bunch of
people whose lives that depend
upon you. Now, because a bunch
of greedy developers want to
redevelop, your life is over,
you're out of here."
Prior to the meeting, acting
Growth Management Director
Drew Trivette issued a memo rec-
ommending against the moratori-
um.
"Unfortunately," he wrote, "a
moratorium will not stop or pro-
hibit eviction [of park residents];
it only removes one incentive for
a park owner to do so."
Neugent suggested the best
solution to the rapid demise of the
parks would be for the county to
stop approving zoning changes
for mobile-home parks.

Drilling gets brushed back


Bill would've
allowed it 45
miles from Keys
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


An attempt to help Cuba's
government drill for oil near
the Florida Keys was blocked
in Congress this week.
An amendment to an energy
bill would have allowed U.S.
companies to assist the Castro
government develop offshore
drilling in the Florida Straits
- as close as 45 miles from
the Keys.
"This was problematic, to
say the least," said Ken
Lundberg, a spokesman for
Florida's U.S. Sen. Mel
Martinez. "Pristine waters are
one of many reasons that
Florida's economy is strong.
The environmental concerns
about bringing drilling this
close to Florida's coast are
well known."
Sen. Larry Craig of Idaho
and Sen. Byron Dorgan of
North Dakota sought the 45-
mile rule, in part, so U.S. com-
panies and investors could
help Cuba -develop a new
source for oil.
"Not only would it have
infringed on Florida's waters,
it would weaken the sanctions
we have against the Castro
government," Lundberg said.
"We don't think this bill is
going-anywhere."
"This is probably the


biggest threat we've faced
environmentally in some
time," Todd Firm, a Key Largo
dive shop owner who repre-
sents the dive industry on the
Keys' Sanctuary Advisory
Council, said when the Straits
drilling issue surfaced last
year.
Martinez has reintroduced a
bill that seeks to deny a U.S.
visa to any businessman who
assists the Castro government
to drill for oil in the Florida
Straits.
A similar bill, co-sponsored
by Florida Sen. Bill Nelson,
did not advance after introduc-
tion last year.
"Those drilling fields
would be right in the Straits
about 50 miles off the Florida
coast," said Bryan Gulley, a
spokesman for Nelson. "It's
got a Wild West atmosphere
down there with the Chinese
and other countries moving
in.... We aren't guaranteed any
kind of'environmental safe-
guards. If something should
happen, we all know which
way the water flows."
Since 1977, the United
States and Cuba have abided
by a pact that essentially splits
the 90-mile-wide Florida
Straits down the middle, with
each nation getting half as its
territorial waters.
"Back in 1977, this prima-
rily was about things like fish-
ing rights," said Gulley. "We
need to look for more effec-
tive ways to stop the threat of
drilling in the Straits."


U.


Oil drilling also was on the
mind of U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen this week.
The South Florida
Republican issued a statement
criticizing a federal plan to
open millions of acres in the
northern Gulf of Mexico to
drilling.
It would mark the first time
that gulf waters off Florida
would be drilled, although
guarantees negotiated last year
by Martinez and Nelson would
keep drilling at least 125 miles
away from shore.
An Interior Department
proposal released Monday
would be the next step toward
opening the area.
Ros-Lehtinen voted against
the gulf-drilling plan last year.
"While the Department's
plan has yet to be finalized, I
am extremely concerned for
the dangerous precedent it sets
for those who seek to destabi-
lize Florida's tourist economy
and environmental protection
by allowing oil companies to
drill within miles of our pris-
tine coastline," she said in a
statement.
Reef Relief and other envi-
ronmental groups are worried
an oil spill in the northern gulf
could be caught a loop current
and carried down to the
Florida Straits.

But he says he's not giving up.
Wednesday, Saunders met
with fellow House member Ray
Sansom, chairman of the House
Policy and Budget Council, to
explore the possibility of the state
bonding the estimated $500 mil-
lion it will take to sewer all of the
Keys.
"We'll look at the feasibility
of the state's issuing a bond" after
the regular legislative session
ends, he said. "This would accel-
erate the projects so we could do
it all at one time. It will only be
more expensive if we wait."
"The study will show whether
it can be done, who will repay it,
all of the requirements," he said.
"My position is, the sooner we
get it, the better. It gives a certain-


ty as opposed to having to go to
Tallahassee every year. I don't
want to rely on whether it's a
good budget year or a bad budget
year."
"We want to get these projects
done and in the ground," Monroe
County sewer-project senior
administrator Liz Wood said.
"The [state] push to get this done
by 2010 makes it hard. Our con-
struction delays have been
because of state funding delays."
Saunders asked for $20 mil-
lion for the Keys, echoing the
budget proposal by Gov. Charlie
Crist. He said he volunteered for
the environmental committee
thinking he would be able to
track the money through commit-
tee and into the final legislative
budget.
"The committee didn't serve
the purpose I hoped it would," he
said. He noted he still serves on
the Policy and Budget Com-
mittee, the committee responsible
for the Legislature's budget.
Early in the 2007 session,
Saunders held two "sewer sum-
mits" in the Keys to find out the
needs of the county and its
municipalities. The tally, accord-
ing to local mayors and county
officials, will likely run in excess
of $500 million.

Panel eyes waterfront law


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


In probably one of the most
well-attended meetings of the
county's Marine and Port
Advisory Committee ever,
Monroe County inched forward
on its effort to preserve the work-
ing waterfront.
"The ordinance needs a little
more work. It needs to be kicked
around some more," said Pete
Worthington, a committee mem-
ber and Marathon city council-
man.
The advisory committee,
whose job is to vet marine-relat-
ed issues and weigh in to the
County Commission, had its first
look Wednesday at a draft ordi-
nance that would require owners
of marinas and boat yards to ded-
icate at least half their parcels to
the use they currently contain.
"We're really beyond individ-
ual concerns about whether the
county should preserve the work-
ing waterfront," committee
Chairman Ben lanotta said.
"We're talking about how to do it


fairly.
At least 30 people, primarily
fish-house owners and commer-
cial fishermen, went to the
Marathon meeting.
"I think they're very sincere
in that they want to continue
operating as they are right now,"
County Commissioner George
Neugent said of the fish-house
owners who spoke at the meet-
ing. "They would love to have
their taxes reduced according to
what their business is rather than
the highest and best use.
However, they do not want any
restrictions on their property."
"The biggest threat right now
to the working waterfront is con-
version to condos," Worthington
said. "If there were no way to
transfer building rights from
other parcels to the working
waterfront properties, it would
probably solve three quarters of
the problem."
"Its an interesting idea that we
need to talk about," Neugent
said.


"A lot of working waterfront
properties don't have any resi-
dential rights to speak of,"
Worthington said. "Property
owners don't want to diminish
value, but transferring building
rights is not something they cur-
rently have. This is not just a
Keys issue. We're seeing resi-
dential overrunning commercial
properties from West Palm to
Key West."
lanotta said the proposed
ordinance will come back to his
committee again before the
County Commission considers it.
"County staff will take our
input and input from audience
members and come out with a
strong working waterfront
preservation ordinance, another
draft ordinance," he said. "But it
will be a fair one, too."
The draft proposal, in addition
to limiting redevelopment of
working waterfront properties,
contains incentives to property
owners, including the ability to
transfer density from a water-
front site to another parcel in the
same region of the Keys.


DCA has issues with city LDRs


By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council is
scheduled to meet in regular ses-
sion at a new time of 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday at the Marathon
Government Center. Agenda
items include:
A resolution extending the
Planning Department's defer-
ment of accepting and processing
applications for building permits
under the rate-of-growth-ordi-
nance system until the city's new
land development regulations are
approved by the state Department
of Community Affairs.
Planning Director Fred Gross
said DCA has several issues with
the city's LDRs and zoning maps
that have to be corrected before
they are approved and a new per-
mit allocation system is installed.
The new system would award
applicants points based on the
environmental and buildable
qualities of vacant lots and limit
the amount of points received
from donating conservation lands
to the city. Just as now, the appli-
cants with the highest point totals
would receive the city's 24 year-
ly market-rate permits.


The resolution asks to extend
the deferment until July, when
Gross expects the LDRs to have
DCA approval.
+ A previously denied ordi-
nance establishing a uniform
speed zone throughout Marathon.
Staff had said it would allow the
city to change speed limits on city
roads when applicable.
The ordinance passed first
reading in March under the previ-
ously seated council and then
failed on a second reading under
the current council in a 2-2 vote,
with Mayor Chris Bull absent.
Bull has sponsored the ordi-
nance for another hearing and said,
"It would be a disservice for this
ordinance to go by the wayside."
An ordinance requiring res-
idents to follow water-use restric-
tions adopted by the South
Florida Water Management
District during times of shortage
or emergency. The ordinance cre-
ates enforcement procedures.
The Keys afd all of South
Florida are in the midst of one of
the worst droughts in decades. To
see the water-use rules, go to
www.keynoter.com.


+ A resolution exempting
vendors of alcoholic beverages
within Marathon from Monroe
County code requiring those
businesses to post warning signs
to pregnant women about the
dangers drinking poses to unborn
children.
An ordinance amending
fees and procedures regarding
code enforcement and the actions
of the Code Compliance Board.
+ Discussion of the city's
sewer-construction budget and
schedule.

Before this, a resolution was
drafted in August 2003 that
would've given artist Chod Stine
the task of creating three sculp-
tures and a mural at the point.
Subsequently, Johnson's con-
troversial statues arrived with
endorsement from the Art in
Public Places Board. Art in
Public Places Director Frank
Garner said then-Mayor Jimmy
Weekley worked out the plans for
the statues.
The City Commission denied
Johnson's "New Friends" gift
twice, but then passed a resolu-,
tion giving the project a 60-day
trial period that started March 7.
Despite pleas from Penrose,
Garner and One Human Family

mission unanimously voted
Tuesday for a resolution to
remove the statues. The. resolu-

statues were moved.
Garner said in an interview
that since they were a gift to the
city, what happens to the statues
is entirely up to Johnson. He said
he "was saddened" by the com-
mission's decision, and that "art
is subjective."

Commissioner Bill Verge
noted that the "geographical cen-
ter" of the United States -
Lebanon, Kan. is home to a
simple, discrete marker. Key
West should maintain the same
style for the Southernmost Point,
he said.
Norma Jean Sawyer, execu-
tive director of the Bahama
Conch Community Land Trust,
said the art "ignores the history"
of the Southernmost Point.
Sawyer believes the site should
represent a "milestone of black
history" -including Bishop Kee.
Commissioner Clayton
Lopez, whose district is home to
Bahama Village, said despite the
statues being "excellent art
pieces," the majority of his con-
stituents did not approve of them
at the Southernmost Point. He
voted against the statues.
Garner said the buoy placed at
the point in 1983 wasn't given a
warm reception, either. But with
time, people learned to like it. He
added he would like to see the
statues stay in Key West, but that
Johnson has already had several
requests from other cities that
would gladly accept them.
Commissioner Harry Bethel
proposed possibly moving the
statues to a new location such as
the Key West Bight, Bayview
Park or Mallory Square.
He also proposed placing a
large sculpture of a conch shell at
one of these locations to serve as
a new centerpiece for the statues.

Keys to get millions
in state budget

The Florida. Keys will get
more than $40 million in state
funding in the 2007-08 budget,
state Rep. Ron Saunders' office
reported Friday.
Some of the highlights:
$26 million for road resur-
facing and repairs.
+ $2.3 million for the Florida
Keys Heritage Trail.
$319,500 for parks in Key
West, Marathon and Islamorada
+ $600,000 in stormwater and
sewer infrastructure improve-
ments.
+ $1.25 million for Mallory
Square dock improvements in
Key West.
In addition to the funding in
the state budget, Saunders said
he obtained a commitment from
legislative leaders to conduct an
interim study to determine the
feasibility of the state issuing
$500 million in bonds to fund
the completion of the county's
sewer system.
Saunders sought $20 million
in sewer funding this budget
year but it was slashed.


seat restaurant and bar at 3820
N. Roosevelt Boulevard.
Currently, Key West's
largest conference center is at
the Casa Marina Resort, with
roughly 5,000 square feet.
Spottswood Cos.' confer-
ence center is sure to bring an
increased number of upscale
visitors, which would be posi-
tive for Key West, said Harold
Wheeler, marketing director of
the Monroe County Tourist
Development Council.
"Meeting business is very
important to the makeup of our
marketing program," he said.
Mayor Morgan McPherson
said businesses have wanted to
hold large meetings in town for
some time, but been restricted
by a lack of space.
"It's a well-known fact that
they [business] have always
wanted to" come to Key West,
McPherson said. "It's just that
we've never had a suitable cen-
ter."
But Wheeler concedes that
while Key West will attract
more upper-class visitors, it
will lose a valuable customer
in the process the "brand-
conscience visitors" those
who seek out familiar names
like the Radisson or Comfort
Inn for lodging.
The Roosevelt site is cur-
rently home to a Days Inn,
Comfort Inn, Radisson Inn,
Holiday Inn, Quality Inn, and
Conch Tour Train and Visitor
Center. Restaurants such as the
Waffle House, Kahoots and
Mason de Pepes are also on the
property.

Wheeler said demolishing
these facilities will result in the
loss of a considerable number
of middle-income family visi-
tors who regularly visit the
island.
Another concern is 550
rooms within the five exist-
ing hotels will go off line
throughout construction, which
partner Robert Spotswood says
could be completed by 2010 if
the project begins in 2008.
Residents aired concerns
over the inevitable dust that
will come from construction of
the project, and Commissioner
Dan Kolhage asked
Spottswood what could be
done to mitigate the problem.
Spotswood suggested a ply-
wood fence, and said the com-
pany would "do their best" to
keep to a minimum any distur-
bances from the project.
Spottswood addressed com-
missioners' concerns over the
loss of hotel rooms, claiming
only 16 affordable-housing
residents will be displaced as
construction is underway.
While those units will be
rebuilt, Spottswood Cos. is
required to "provide a plan for
the displacement and/or reloca-
tion of residents" in the mean-
time, as spelled out in the city's
executive summary.
Planning Director Gail
Kenson said the project comes
with a 50-year deed restriction
on the 16 affordable units.
"I think that it's something
that is going to be difficult for
two years, but it will be worth
it," McPherson said. "I think
the Spottswoods did every-
thing right."

Prior offenders of Florida's
fish and wildlife laws will soon
receive notice from the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission that the next time
they are caught, they could face
stricter penalties.
Over the next week, the FWC
will mail about 30,000 notices to
prior violators.
The notices result from a 2006
statute, commonly referred to as
the Enhanced Penalty Law. It
increases penalties for those who
repeatedly violate Florida's wild-
life laws.
The law classifies violations
at four levels and includes
increased penalties at each level
for repeat violators. They are:
+ Level 1 violations are those
that do not directly impact natu-
ral resources, such as hunting or
fishing without a license, deer
hunting without an orange vest
and violations of wildlife man-
agement area rules.
For Level 1 violations, first
and subsequent convictions
result in a $50 fine plus court
costs, unless the defendant was
convicted of having no license.
Level 2 violations are crim-
inal infractions that directly
impact resources, such as
exceeding bag limits, fishing
during closed seasons or illegally
feeding wildlife.
For those violations the first
conviction is punishable by a
maximum $500 fine and 60 days
in jail. A second conviction with-
in three years carries up to a year
in jail.
Level 3 infractions are
more serious violations, such as
possession of three fish in excess
of the daily bag limit of trout.
First conviction will result in
a maximum $1,000 fine and a
year in jail. A second conviction
within 10 years carries a maxi-
mum one year in jail.
Level 4 infractions are the
most serious violations. They
include possession of a counter-
feit license, and molestation or
theft of freshwater fishing gear or
lobster, stone or blue crab traps,
lines or buoys.
First and subsequent convic-
tions are punishable by up to a
$5,000 fine and five years in jail.

Manager list now at seven


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Key West city commissioners
on Tuesday agreed to take over
vetting of the city-manager can-
didates after relieving their
search committee of further
responsibilities.
The list of candidates is now
down to seven after two finalists,
Kent Myers and Michael
Mahaney, withdrew their names.
Myers is city manager of Hot
Springs, Ark., and Mahaney was
Nassau County, Fla., administra-
tor from 2004 to 2007.
Also Tuesday, commissioners
passed a resolution for, current
-City Manager Julio Avael to step
down-Aug. 15 under the condi-
tion he work with the future city
manager to ensure a smooth tran-
Ssition during hurricane season.
Avael had planned to retire at the
end of November.
The commission agreed on a
salary somewhere between
$165,000 to $200,000 to fund
Avael's replacement. Avael earns
$132,265 annually.
Search-committee member
Shirley Freeman, former mayor
of Monroe County, asked the
City Commission for $20,000 to
cover the cost of bringing appli-


cants to Key West for interviews.
Freeman and other members
of the committee believe the
transfer of responsibilities was
premature, citing the process for
reviewing resumes and creden-
tials.
Freeman said the committee
was unable to give a truly thor-
ough search, and expressed hope
that the City Commission will see
that task through.
"We never got a true essence
who these people are," commit-
tee spokesman Scott Fraser said.
City Commissioner Clayton
Lopez was apprehensive about
handing over the task so abruptly
to the commission and suggested,
along with City Attorney Shawn
Smith, allowing the committee
one final meeting to finalize its
work.
The majority of commission-
ers said there isn't time for a final
committee meeting, given the
hurricane season beginning June
1, and decided to take the reins,
but not before offering their grat-
itude to each committee member
for their work.
Key West Police Chief Bill
Mauldin said background checks
on each applicant came back


clean. Status of the other checks
involving credit background, ref-
erence checks, education and
,work history are unknown.
Commissioners will discuss
details of the up-and-coming
'interviews at a special meeting in
Old City Hall at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
The seven remaining appli-
cants:
+ Lester Baird served as
county administrator for Hendry
County.
Larry Deetjen was city
manager of Deerfield Beach.
Gary Edwards is city man-
ager of Moberly, Mo.
+ Edward Gomeau is town
administrator of Greenwich,
Conn.
Jeff Hathaway was director
of the Joint Interagency Task

Avael exit deal passes


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


The City Commission on
Tuesday passed a resolution to
end Julio Avael's term as city
manager early, on Aug. 15, but
keep him working as a consultant
through November to smoothen
the adjustment period for whoev-
er's chosen as his replacement.
"I'm here to serve the City
Commission," Avael said, quietly.
The original terms of Avael's
contract would've kept him on
through the end of November, but
with an impending hurricane sea-
son, along with a slew of other
pressing issues Key West will
inevitably deal with, the resolu-
tion will ensure a smooth swap of
responsibilities, as Avael can
extend his knowledge and expert-
ise to the incoming city manager,
commissioners agreed.
Avael is Key West's longest
serving city manager, a fact that
Commissioner Harry Bethel
emphasized, adding Avael


deserves extra leave time.
"Here's a man who's been
here 11 years," he said. "He has
earned it."
Avael will collect all of his
unused annual and sick leave that
will continue to accrue until Nov.
30.
Mayor Morgan McPherson
has pursued a myriad of motives
to fire Avael for months, to no
avail. The resolution for Avael's
early departure was a "compro-
mise" negotiated by Com-
missioner Mark Rossi.
Also Tuesday:
+ An ordinance to annex
Wisteria Island, known as
Christmas Tree Island, passed,
with Rossi and Bill Verge dissent-
ing.
"The citizens should be the
ones to decide this," Rossi said,
adding that if the city annexes the
island, currently in unincorporat-
ed Monroe County, it would be
responsible for about 21.5 acres


of upland and 150 acres of bay
bottom of new property.
Numerous people objected to
the annexation during public
comment.
George Halloran of environ-
mental group Last Stand said
"new development has never
decreased taxes," and that devel-
opment of the Island would spill
over to Key West proper in terms
of traffic and effluent.
Scott Fraser spoke on behalf
of the Society for the Preser-
vation of Mariners, stressing an
agreement that is friendly to
mariners, particularly more than
100 anchored along the edge of
Wisteria Island.
The manmade island is about
2,200 feet northwest of Duval
Street, in Key West Harbor.
The Florida Keys Assisted
Living Care Coalition presented
its plan for 40 assisted-care units
and 95 independent-living units
at the Truman waterfront. The
coalition hopes to open its facili-
ty by 2009 or 2010.

Where's your tax money?


Social Security,
defense spending
cost the most
McClatchy Tribune

You've hopefully filed your
taxes and now await a possible
refund. But what are these steep
federal taxes going for?
Washington will spend
$24,106 per household in 2007
- the highest total since World
War II, and an inflation-adjusted


$4,000 more than in 2001. Where
does it go?
+ Social Security/Medicare:
$8,301. The 15.3 percent payroll
tax, split evenly between the
employer and employee, covers
most of these costs.
This system can remain sus-
tainable only if there are enough
workers to support all retirees,
which is why it risks collapsing
under the weight of 77 million
retiring baby boomers. If nothing
is done, taxes eventually will


need to rise by $11,651 per
household (adjusted for both
inflation and rising incomes) to
pay all promised benefits.
Defense: $4,951. The
defense budget covers everything
from military salaries to opera-
tions in Iraq and Afghanistan to
the research, development and
acquisition of new technologies.
Lawmakers drastically reduced
defense spending following the
collapse of communism in the
early 1990s.

Tax relief on hold for now


Legislature
to reconvene
June 5 to 15
Associated Press


The state House and Senate
remained at impasse over proper-
ty tax relief and will return in
June to resume discussions
instead of trying to reach an
agreement before the 2007 regu-
lar session ends Friday, legisla-


five leaders said.
House Speaker Marco Rubio
and Senate President Ken Pruitt
told their respective chambers
that they had agreed to postpone
the biggest issue lawmakers were
facing after consulting with Gov.
Charlie Crist.
The special session is tenta-
tively scheduled for June 5 to 15,
they said.
"The issue is too important for
our state and to our taxpayers for


us to give them a product that
they would not be proud of," said
Pruitt, R-Port St. Lucie.
Rubio, R-West Miami, said
the chambers have made "con-
ceptual progress" but not enough
to resolve their differences on a
final version that would include
placing one or more state consti-
tutional amendments on the bal-
lot for voter approval.

Veterans' benefits on the rise


TAXES / From 20

The Sept. 11, 2001, attacks
reversed this trend, and the infla-
tion-adjusted $1,618 per house-
hold increase since 2001 has
returned defense spending closer
to its historical levels.
Anti-poverty programs:
$3,550. Nearly half of this spend-
ing subsidizes state Medicaid
programs that provide health
services to poor families. Other
low-income spending includes:
Temporary Assistance for Needy
Families, food stamps, housing.
subsidies, child-care subsidies,
Supplemental Security Income
and low-income tax credits.
Interest on the federal debt:
$2,071. The federal government
is $9 trillion in debt. It owes $5
trillion to public bond owners,
and the rest to other federal agen-
cies (mostly to repay the Social
Security trust fund, which law-
makers raid annually). Despite
rising debt, record-low interest
rates have limited costs. As inter-
est rates rise back to normal lev-

Hurricane items
exempt from tax

This year's sales-tax holiday
for hurricane-preparedness items
runs from June 1 to June 12.
This is the third year the sales-
tax holiday will occur. It's
expected to save Floridians
almost $25 million in sales taxes,
according to state officials.
Following are a few examples of
items that will be exempt from
sales tax:
Flashlights and other
portable, self-powered light
sources of $20 or less.
Portable radios, two-way
radios and weather-band radios
of $75 or less.
Tarps of $50 or less.
Gas or diesel fuel contain-
ers of $25 or less.
AAA, AA, C- and D-cell,
and 6- and 9-volt batteries of $30
or less.
Non-electrical food storage
coolers of $30 or less.
Portable generators of
$1,000 or less.
Carbon-monoxide detec-
tors of $75 or less.
Storm-shutter devices of
$200 or less.


els, these costs will spike.
Federal employee retire-
ment benefits: $907. This funds
the retirement and disability ben-
efits of federal employees,
including the military.
Health research/regulation:
$664. The category also includes
the Food and Drug Admin-
istration and dozens of grant pro-
grams for health providers.
Veterans' benefits: $627.
The federal government provides
income and health benefits to
war veterans. Spending is up 36
percent since 2001.
Education: $584.
Education spending is primarily
a state and local function; 9 per-
cent of the total comes from
Washington. Federal education
spending has surged 62 percent
since the 2001 enactment of the
No Child Left Behind Act. Most
federal dollars are spent on low-
income school districts, special
education and college student
financial aid.
Highways/mass transit:
$418. Most highway and mass-
transit spending is financed by
the 18.4 cent per-gallon federal
gas tax.
Washiington subtracts an
administrative cost and sends this
money back to the states with
numerous strings attached. Some
economists suggest it would be
more efficient to let states collect
this tax and decide how to spend
the money themselves.


Justice administration:
$392. Justice spending includes
federal attorneys and prisons, as
well as law enforcement grant
programs. New homeland securi-
ty costs have added $100 per
household to justice spending.
Natural resources/environ-
ment: $305. This includes
national parks, federal lands,
water projects and environmental
clean-up.
International affairs: $304.
This includes foreign economic
and military assistance, operation
of American embassies abroad,
and contributions to organiza-
tions such as the United Nations.
International spending has nearly
doubled since Sept. 11.
Unemployment benefits:
$299. Unemployment costs fluc-
tuate based on the number of
unemployed Americans. This
year, unemployment costs are
decreasing as job growth contin-
ues.
Community and regional
development: $282. The dou-
bling of spending in this category
since 2004 comes from the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency, which is financing much
of the Hurricane Katrina relief.
The programs listed above
cover $23,655 per household.
The remaining $451 is allocated
to all other federal programs,
including farm subsidies, social
services, space exploration, air
transportation and energy.

RELIEF / From 20

back in session to correct that,"
Rubio said. "You have to go back
to the people. Even if we wanted
to, it would be impossible to craft
a constitutional amendment in 72
hours."
Crist made cutting property
taxes and fixing inequities in the
system a major campaign issue
last year in response to wide-
spread taxpayer protests. He has
insisted that taxes must "drop like
a rock."
Many tax bills have soared in
recent years because of rapidly
rising property values. Owners of
primary homes, known as home-
steads, have been protected by
the Save Our Homes Amendment
that caps annual increases at 3
percent, but that has resulted in
higher bills for other taxpayers.
The Senate had offered a tax
package that would save taxpay-
ers about $20 billion over five
years while a House plan would
have cut nearly $50 billion in the
same time. Crist proposed a third
version that would have cut taxes
by about $34 billion over five
years.
One -of the major stumbling
blocks has been a Republican-
sponsored House proposal that
would reduce or eliminate prop-
erty taxes on homesteads in
exchange for increasing the
statewide sales tax from 6 percent
to at least 7 percent and possibly
as much as 8.5 percent.
The Senate has been unified in


opposing any sales tax increase,
arguing that it would shift the
burden of supporting government
from some of Florida's wealthiest
citizens to other taxpayers.
Senators also have objected to
the. House's insistence that taxes
be cut $1,200 a year for home-
steads, $750 for other residence
and $3,300 for businesses. It
would result in cuts so deep that
cities and counties would be
forced to slash vital services
including police and fire, the sen-
ators say.
Formal talks were suspended
last week and never resumed as
leaders tried to resolve those two
key policy issues before focusing
on details.
Plans offered by both cham-
bers and Crist all include the con-
cept of rolling tax back and then
capping them with exceptions for
population growth and inflation
or increases in personal income.
They differ, though, in how far
taxes should be rolled back.
Local officials urged that law-
makers include them in discus-
sions during the special session.
"We support relief for busi-
nesses and non-homesteaded
property owners who have faced
the tax burden shift brought on by
Save Our Homes," said Pinellas
County Commissioner Susan
Latvala, president of the Florida
Association of Counties.
"However, we cannot accept tens
of billions of dollars in state-
mandated cuts that would harm
urban and rural counties in vastly
different ways."

Fishermen on the Tom's Harbor Cut Bridge now have more room to spread out. The platforms add space and are designed to
relieve congestion, and that should be apparent during busy holiday weekends when mainland visitors fill the piers.

Extensions relieve
congestion on
popular old bridge

Workers building the new
bridge-fishing platforms on
the old Tom's Harbor Cut
Bridge encountered one big
problem.
"It is so incredibly beauti-
ful down there that it's hard to
keep your head on the job,"
said John Kato Sr., project
manager for the family-owned
Otak Group Inc., a marine
construction firm.
Despite the allure of the
view and a gusty spring
that caused work to be halted
several days when gale-force
winds were recorded the
$658,500 project near Duck
Key to build a dozen fishing
platforms wrapped up in three
months, well ahead of the


state's deadline.
"Some days when winds
were kicking across at 30
mph, it was tough," Kato
said. "Local people told us
it's been a pretty darn windy
year."
Otak engineered the plat-'
forms off conceptual draws by
the state. "A lot of work went
into it before we started con-
struction," Otak President
Aaron Kato said.
The idea of building plat-
forms off several old Flagler
railroad bridges originated
nearly a decade ago as a state
and local task forces devel-
oped plans to incorporate the
historic spans into the Florida
Keys Overseas Heritage State
Trail, part of the Greenways
and Trails division of the state
Department of Environmental
Protection.
"The master plan was com-
pleted in 2001 and we've been

PIER / From 25

working since to implement
it," local Trail Manager Debra
Stucki said.
Similar platforms are
planned for the nearby Tom's
Harbor Channel Bridge, and
the old Channel Two Bridge
and Long Key Bridge.
Eighteen Keys bridges are
part of the greenways project.
Five spans in the Lower Keys
already have been retrofitted
for improved use by fisher-
men and others.
"Bridges like Tom's Harbor
are not as wide, so the plat-
forms will reduce user con-
flicts between the fishermen
and others who may want to
bicycle or walk over the
bridges," Stucki said. "Some
people tend to spread their
gear and chairs out on the
bridges, so we need to allevi-
ate congestion."
Other projects will proceed
as money becomes available.
The DEP and the Department
of Transportation played a big
role in funding and facilitat-
ing the platform project.
Six 8- by 10-foot platforms
made of concrete and steel
now extend over the water
from each side of the bridge.


Aluminum guardrails add pro-
tection.
"You can stand on them
and feel very secure," John
Kato said. "You can stand on
them in the back of a Mack
truck and feel safe. They're
going nowhere. We could link
them together and make a
flight deck out of it."
Each platform rests on four
6,000-pound steel beams and
a double layer of high-grade
concrete and rebar. "It's about
as tough as you can get," Kato
said.
Otak is a minority-owned
company the Kato family
belongs to the Lumbee tribe
of Native Americans based
in Yulee.
"These projects are inter-
esting to us," Aaron Kato
said. "We look for specialty
marine-concrete projects that
we can mobilize on."
A formal dedication at
Tom's Harbor-Cut is planned
for 6 p.m. June 7. Those
attending can stick around for
sunset.
"Debra Stucki and the DOT
did a lot to make this happen,"
John Kato said. "One of the
really nice things to see as we
were packing up was that
families already were out
there using the platforms.

No recall
of slaughtered
chickens planned
Associated Press

U.S. health investigators
suspect they will find more
farms that received tainted ani-
mal feed but stressed that the
threat to people is minimal.
The investigators are trying
to learn just how much pet food
tainted with an industrial chem-
ical called melamine made its
way into products consumed by
pets as well as by hogs and
chickens.
The pet-food scare, as well
as earlier discoveries of E. coli
in spinach and salmonella in
peanut butter, has led to con-
cerns about the safety of the
United States' food supply.
This week, investigators
announced that byproducts
from tainted pet food had been


used in chicken feed on some
farms in Indiana. A few days
earlier, they said hog farms in
six states may have received
tainted pet food for use as feed.
The pet. food could be to
blame for a wave of dog and cat
deaths in March due to kidney
failure. However, Dr. David
Acheson, an assistant commis-
sioner for the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration, said the
threat level to- pets is greater
than to livestock or humans.
"It was only a small portion
of what the poultry was fed,
and human consumers will only
use poultry as a small portion
of their diet," Acheson said.
By contrast, pets often eat
the same product exclusively,
he said.
"The dilution factors here
are enormous," he said.
The FDA on Tuesday named
Acheson as assistant commis-
sioner for food protection. One


of his first projects will be to
develop a strategy that identi-
fies potential gaps in the food
safety system.
Officials said that as many
as 3 million young chickens out
of 9 billion slaughtered annual-
ly may have eaten feed that
potentially included an ingredi-
ent containing the melamine.
They have already been slaugh-
tered for human consumption,
but because there is no evi-
dence that consumption is
unsafe, no recall has been
issued.
Overall, the FDA has
received about 17,000 calls
alleging illness or death of a pet
as a result of contaminated
food. Roughly half of those
entered alleged an animal
death.
The agency will investigate
to determine whether the deaths
are associated with the recalled
products.
Meanwhile, Democratic
lawmakers announced plans


Tuesday for addressing food
safety. Two lawmakers intro-
duced legislation that would
give the FDA the power to
order mandatory recalls of
adulterated food products, plus
establish fines for companies
that do not promptly report
contaminated products.
David Kessler, who served
as FDA commissioner in the
administrations of the first
President Bush and President
Clinton, said the federal gov-
ernment has more authority to
halt the distribution of danger-
ous toys than it has over unsafe
food products.

Air Force cadet
makes dean's list

Cadet 3rd Class David
Operchal, a 2005 graduate of
Marathon High School, has
been named to the dean's list for
the fall semester 2006-07 at the
U.S. Air Force Academy. To
make the list, cadets must main-
tain a grade point average of 3.0
or above.
Operchal is majoring in aero-
nautical engineering and is
scheduled to graduate in May
2009.

Florida prepaid
rewards Keys student

Most writers get paid a going
rate of 15 to 25 cents a word, but
Savannah Koval's recent schol-
arship win knocks her off the
scale at $35 per word.
Last week, the annual
Governor's Recognition Schol-
arship Program awarded the
Plantation Key School seventh-


grade a four-year prepaid tuition
scholarship including all local
fees such as labs, parking and
athletics for a value in today's
market of $14,000.
"I was shocked. It was like
winning the lottery. I didn't real-
ize that's what the prize was,"
said Savannah's mother Bari
Koval.
TheFlorida Pre-Paid College
Foundation board runs the con-
test and provides the scholar-
ship. Each year it picks three
Florida counties, one large,
medium and small, to submit
essays from seventh-grade stu-
dents.
Koval's essay was about
Democrat Bob Graham, gover-
nor from 1978 to 1986 before
serving three terms in the U.S.
Senate.
"She asked us who we liked
and we said Graham. But when
she asked us why, we told her,
Go do the research and you tell
us," Koval's mother said.
Koval's essay was judged by
a three-member panel that
included Monroe County School


District Superintendent Randy
Acevedo, Principal Marion
Smith of Sigsbee Elementary in
Key West and Ted Hoepner,
chairman of the Florida Prepaid
College Foundation Board in
Tallahassee.

WomanKind starts
online health survey

WomanKind, a Key West
health facility for women, has
posted surveys on its Web site to
help determine ways to design
diagnostic and wellness pro-
grams to benefit employees of
businesses as well as individuals
who do not have health insur-
ance or who are interested in
promoting a healthier work
environment.
The cost of living is one of
the greatest challenges facing
those in the Keys. As a result,
many long-term residents have
departed and businesses are
finding it increasingly difficult
to find reliable staff.
While the cost of housing


may be the largest expense, the
cost of health care is not far
behind. Many people in the
Keys do without health cover-
age or purchase catastrophic
coverage with very high
deductibles. In either case, basic
health-care needs often go unad-
dressed until they emerge as
major problems.
To participate in the survey,
go to www.womankindkey
west.org. Choose either the
business owners/managers or
employees/workers version at
the bottom of the home page.
All responses are confidentiali-
ty.

Truman symposium returns to city


Former EPA chief
among speakers
over two days

In December 1947, then-
President Harry S Truman trav-
eled from his Little White House
in Key West to dedicate
Everglades National Park, today
revered as a national treasure.
June 8 and 9, that action is to
be celebrated during the fifth
annual Truman Legacy
Symposium.
Created.to recognize the last-
ing contributions of America's
33rd president, the symposium
in 2007 is titled "Harry S
Truman and the Environment:
From Los Alamos to the
Everglades." Events are to be
headquartered at the Little
White House at Truman Annex,
where Truman spent 175 days
during his 1945-1953 tenure in
office.
Topics are to focus on
Truman's environmental legacy
and actions, including his dedi-
cation of Everglades National


Park. The symposium's subject
is particularly timely since 2007
marks the 60th anniversary of
that historic dedication.
Presentations also are to
explore Truman's other environ-
mental concerns of the day:
hydroelectric power, responsible
irrigation of western lands and
the peaceful use of atomic ener-
gy.
Keynote speakers are to
include former U.S.
Environmental Protection
Agency Administrator Christine
Todd Whitman; and columnist
Michael Grunwald of "The
Washington Post," author of
"The Swamp: The Everglades,
Florida and the Politics of
Paradise."
The conference is chaired by
Karl Brooks of the University of
Kansas, a noted expert on the
environmental policies of for-
mer presidents Truman and
Eisenhower.
Truman grandson Clifton
Truman Daniel, other Truman
family members, Truman schol-


ars and former presidential staff
members are to participate as
well. Among them is Ken
Hechler, a Truman aide and
speechwriter for his whistle-stop
campaign who later became
West Virginia's secretary of
state.
An optional workshop ses-
sion is scheduled at 2 p.m. June
8, at the Waterfront Playhouse,
310 Wall St. Designed for stu-
dents and others interested in
environmental policy, it is titled
"20th Century Environmental
Records and Policy:
Perspectives on Federal Policy
and Federal Records."
Presenters are to include repre-
sentatives of the National
Archives and the Truman
Presidential Library and
Museum.
The symposium reception is
scheduled at 6:30 p.m. Friday on
the grounds of the Little White
House, 111 Front St., Florida's
only presidential museum.
The evening's highlight is to
be Whitman's keynote speech,
focusing on an overview of
executive leadership in environ-


mental issues. In addition, ,a
book signing is scheduled fea-
turing both Whitman and
Grunwald.
June 9's symposium events
are set for 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at
the Tennessee Williams Theatre
on the campus of Florida Keys
Community College.
Events are slated to start with
a registration and continental
breakfast, followed by opening
remarks by Truman's grandson,
Clifton Truman Daniel; Michael
Devine, executive director of the
Truman Presidential Library;
and Robert Wolz, executive
director of the Little White


House.
Presentations and panel dis-
cussion are to focus on Truman's
overall environmental legacy,
environmental law and adminis-
tration, the postwar environment
and changing perspectives6on
environmental politics.
Tickets for the 2007 Truman
Legacy Symposium are $100
per person and available online

Boat operators
being sought
for Marathon

The Super Boat International
Marathon Offshore Grand Prix
boat race returns May 20, and
volunteers with boats are needed
for turn, sweep and medical
boats.
Turn boats are usually larger
boats with a high profile such as
sailboats or fishing boats with
towers. They are used to mark
the turns on the race course.
Sweep boats are usually 16
feet or larger and can be most
any type of vessel. They serve as
the security boats for the race
course and work in conjunction
with race control and local law
enforcement vessels.
Medical boats are used to
respond to any incident that
might happen on the race course.
Medical boats should be 25 feet
or larger. Boats with room such
as center console models or
those with dive platforms are
preferred. Medical boats must be
willing to accommodate three
medical personnel on board.
Each vessel participating
should have at least two persons
on board.

no goalkeepers. It is a format
that emphasizes positioning
and precise passing.
Players from Key West and
Coral Shores high schools
competed in the tournament
against South Kendall,
Coconut Creek and Kendal
Hammocks.


A team composed of Zoe
Vincent, Kara Haack, Krizzie
Menez and Jennifer Barcenas
of Key West, and Julia
Hatfield and Jennifer Jenkins
of Coral Shores, won all five
of their game by scores of 9-4,
6-1, 12-1, 12-0 and 8-5.
Another team, made up of
Key West's Monica Bertram,
Kaitlin Hopkins, Scarlett
Williams and Ashley


Stephenson, along with Coral
Shores' Brooks Burdick, lost
only two games and finishetii r""
second place.
"We had never competed in
this format because it takes a
very high degree of ball con-
trol by everyone on the field to
be successful," said Scott Paul,
the Key West High girls coach

Former Fins take new paths


But Maciek, Marek
continue their
tennis success
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

.For many Marathon sports
fans, it may be hard to imagine
three years have passed since
tennis players Maciek Sykut
and Marek Czerwinski
brought Marathon .High
School its first state champi-
onships in 25 years.
Their presence is still felt
on the courts where Marathon
tennis coach Mark Hooper
watched them elevate his
small program, and where he
saw their athletic abilities
matched only by their charac-


ter.
"They were gentleman on'
the.courts, in-the halls and just
in their daily lives,"- Hooper,
said. "Marathon may never
see that kind of talent again.:
We were very lucky to have
them."
The two left Marathon in
2005 as some of the most dec-
orated athletes in school histo-
ry, and they have continued
their success at the next level,
although on different paths.
Sykut is finishing his soph-
omore year on a full-ride
scholarship at Florida State
University and busy making a
name on a very competitive
Division 1A tennis squad.
Czerwinski, however,
turned down a scholarship to


play at Vanderbilt University
to begin playing professional
tournaments in Europe.
SHe is ranked 1,244th in the
world by' the Association of
Tennis Professionals, and has.
already notched some qualit-i-

:.'-But even though Czerw-.:
inski has a head start on his
friend and former doubles
partner on his road to becom-
ing a professional, Czerwinski
said he is still leaving the door
open to experience the college
life Sykut is now enjoying.
"Technically, though I have
ATP points, I'm not officially
a professional because I've
kept my amateur status in case

Players best remembered for Marathon state championship"

university," Czerwinski said
in an e-mail to the Keynoter.
"It's very difficult trying to
travel and afford to play these
tournaments for me, since I
don't have a sponsor," he
added.
But Czerwinski has battled
adversity before. Hooper
remembered a match in
Czerwinski's first year with
the team when he was down 0-
3 in the first set of a district
tournament match against
powerhouse Ransom Ever-
glades.
During a break, Czerwinski
came over to the fence and
quietly said to Hooper, "Don't
worry coach."
He proceeded to win the
next 12 games in a row, and
the match.
Czerwinski will most be
remembered for his state 1A
doubles championship he
earned in 2004 with Sykut,
who also took the 1A singles
title.
Those wins, along with
other junior titles, made Sykut
one of the most decorated
freshmen to ever play at
Florida State, according to
several articles at FSU's offi-
cial sports Web site,
www.seminoles.com.
In his first season, Sykut


finished with
an 18-7
record (8-3
in the Atlan-
tic Coast
Conference),
making him
reliable in
the No. 4
CZERWINSKI position. He
went 10-1 in
his last 11
matches,
earning a
H spot as a
a finalist for
the 2006
Intercolle-
lt he giate Tennis
Assoc-iation
Mideast
SYCUT R e g i o n
Rookie of the
Year honors.
He helped the Seminoles to
an 18-12 record and finish
fifth in the ACC. The Noles
were ranked 19th in the coun-
try.
This year, Sykut has accu-
mulated a 14-12 record play-
ing mostly at the No. 3 spot,
although he is 2-0 at the No. 2
spot.
He recently participated in
a feature interview for
Seminoles.com, which is
viewable at http:/1semi-
noles.cstv.comlsportslmt

who selected the two teams.
"You need your subs to be
strong as well."
Paul said the soccer club,
which formed seven years ago
to give players a chance to
develop skills in the spring,
summer and fall, has more
players highly skilled in soccer
fundamentals than it has ever


had.
The club has regularly prac-
ticed the three-on-three format
on the field behind Key West
High Schdol. "It's a chance to
work on triangle formations
that will [pay off] during the
high school season," Paul said.
Both three-on-three teams
will compete July 31 in a
national tournament at the
Disney Wide World of Sports
complex in Orlando.

Boats run under bridge


BOATS / From 39
Anyone interested can call
743-7223.
The course runs roughly
seven miles per lap, starting in
Florida Bay and proceeding
westward to the first checkpoint.
Racers make a 90-degree left
turn to head to the Atlantic
Ocean, passing between the new
and old Seven Mile Bridge con-
crete foundations.
Two more hard left turns


point the racers back to the bay
side, again speeding through the
narrow pass between the
bridges' concrete foundations. A
right turn in the bay takes racers
across the finish line or to a hair-
pin left turn that completes each
lap.
The Superboat Unlimited,
Superboat Vee Unlimited,
Superboat, Super Vee and Super
Cat classes are to run 14.5 laps,
or about 97 miles. Smaller boat
classes are to run fewer laps and
less overall mileage.

This old island's all grown up


.. .3 As Buffett says,
.. .9 the attitudes


are a-changing
Y et some things remain
quite the same.
Sound familiar?
It should; I've chosen to para-
phrase Key West's (and my)
favorite troubadour in sharing
some realizations of the changes
in the lower latitudes.
My life began in Florida
B.A.C. (Before Air Conditioning.)
The population here was
much different before that minor
convenience came along.
For a lot of native Floridians,
air conditioning was the begin-
ning of the end for our beautiful
state as we knew it. A/C allowed
those from up north to perma-
nently move here by making the
summer heat more tolerable.
Prior to then, the Griswalds
came on vacation only during
the dead of their snow-filled
winters, and needless to say,
we'll never see those days again.
"I've seen more than I can
recall..."
I've been a Keys guy since
the mid-1970s, hanging out
down-island without parental
supervision. Like many of you,
I'm astonished by the metamor-
phosis of the island chain.
I remember the Keys as an
enclave of non-traditionalists,

Most were folks who followed
Florida's four seasons...fishing,
shrimping, lobster, and hurri-
cane.
The first three were the basis
for the economy and those busi-
nesses spumed other types of
inter-related water-borne busi-
nesses, including tourism. The
latter was no big thing; it was
just part of living in pair-o-dice.
Floridians took their chances.
For me, those are the old
days.
Back then, Key West had a
half dozen or so day-sail opera-
tors, most being six-pack opera-
tions like Banana Boat Charters.

"Bring your bodies, booze or
whatever," advertised a framed
advertisement that hung in the
bars of Key West. The all-day
trip cost $35 and included lunch.
The "whatever" always
intrigued me, but I surmised a
day aboard the Chiquita was a
hoot.
Without indicting any of my
friends, I'll just say my Key
West of yesteryear is no more,
and while I've many fading
memories of my antics along
A1A, the islands have changed,
and so have I.
My favorite personal recol-
lection of old Key West is of the
night Vic Latham physically
tossed me out through the dou-
ble doors of his Full Moon
Saloon, which was in the park-
ing lot of the Southernmost
Hotel. He warned me "not to do
that" on his bar and what the
hell, nowadays I'd have proba-
bly gone to jail.
I just picked myself up and
stumbled down to the other end
of the island to a jazz club that
was upstairs from a gentlemen's
club called Pirate's something.
"I ruled my world from a
payphone..."
And back then many Conchs
did, too, from a bank of pay-
phones down near the
Southernmost Point. Mine was -
next to my seat at the end of a
bar on Duval Street.
There's still a payphone there,
at the bar beneath that giant tree
next to the store that sells glass-
ware and electronics. It doesn't
ring when you dial the old num-
ber from back when it was "my
office," but I can still call a cab
from that bar stool without
standing up.
Remember when you only
had to dial five sixes to call a.
cab? The 29 prefix was not
needed.:
These were times when you
could "own the docks" without

ever taking title to them, or own
a small conch home for tens of
thousands of dollars.
And we used to ask who'd
pay that for a house so old that if
the termites quit holding hands it
would fall off its foundation!
B.O.'s Fish Wagon was a fish
wagon, and the Half Shell Raw
Bar was little more than a tiny
kitchen with a screen room for a
dining area.
Half the grouper that slid
along the rickety wooden docks
into Edith Raw's fine establish-
ment had fins while the rest
appeared to be grouper of the
square species. That was back
when the parking lot was
"paved" with oyster shells and
the parking was free.
Waterfront, sunset dinners
included free entertainment and
was served in Styrofoam cups
from a cooler on the back of a
bicycle. Cups that overflowed
with fresh, homemade conch
salad and topped off with fresh-
baked desserts delivered in the
same fashion, and dessert always
came with a rhyme and a smile.
Times have changed. The
Conch Salad man has passed, the
Cookie Lady is creating art in
Ohio, and Will Soto has claimed
he's retiring.
"Yesterday's over our shoul-
der..."
So don't look backward too
long, it'll make it hard to see the
good times ahead, you'll miss
out, and that would be wrong.
Over the years, I've voiced
my opinions on everything from
the loss of the black spiny sea
urchins, which I believe was the
beginning of the decline in
Florida's reefs, to the feds creat-
ing their sanctuary. Mainly
because I grew up snorkeling,
diving and fishing along
Florida's east coast and who
knows how many pounds of fish
I carried home on my bicycle as
a kid.
I hated when they paved the
lots and I had to start paying for
parking. I hated the idea of
cruise ships blocking the sunset,
although it does my heart good
to think tourists pay big bucks to
stay sunset side and end up hav-
ing it blocked by the same big
white boat.
I even wrote letters decrying
the parking garage and ferry ter-
minal, but yep, it's the very ferry
terminal I now use to come back

Key West 'booms'


with entertainment


And one special
act is touring
Keys schools
T he 25th anniversary of the
Conch Republic stormed
through town and every-
where zany events erupted.
In fact, many of our small
town's events were overlapping.
While drag queens were putting
the last-minute touches on their
outfits for their Saturday races
on Duval Street, and Conch
Republic diplomats were launch-
ing their festival at the Schooner
Wharf Bar, the World Sailfish
Championship was winding
down with its tribute show to the
Rolling Stones.
A burst of fireworks greeted
the audience of the Red Barn
Theatre as they stepped out of
the theater for the intermission
of "Bat Boy, the Musical." It
was the TNT Fireworks tribute
accompanying the sailfish tour-
nament "Thank You to Key
West" concert, but it was per-
fectly timed to the wacky play.
With tourists in town from all
points of the compass, were are
reminded how unique this little
island is. People from the heart-
land describe this place to us
from their perspective and we
see again how tolerant and inclu-
sive this community is.
We forget sometimes how
other towns insist everyone fit a
certain mold or suffer for their
eccentricity.

Bounce, Ooo La La
Bounce the Clown and
Mademoiselle Ooo La La have
been a part of Key West since
before the Conch Republic
secession.
They describe themselves as
"a unique theatrical smorgasbord
of juggling, unicycling, music,
equilibristics, object manipula-
tion, puppetry, audience partici-
pation and fast-paced comedy."
This year, they received a
Special Projects grant from the
Florida Keys Council of the
Arts to entertain Monroe County
school children with their jug-
gling, acrobatic and humor act.
The duo, along with their son
Daniel and their dog Top Hat,
have performed around the
country and around the world,
always returning to Key West in
the winter time.

The ups and downs of energy drinks


It's no bull:
The Red Bull
can really kick
T he new lexicon in the age
18-34 (age 21 in most
states) demographic
includes the following: A Short
Trip to Hell, Bone Fish Shot,
various Cherry Bombs, the
world famous Nerve Agent, and _
the ever-popular Panty Dropper
Punch. The big names are Full
Throttle, Rockstar arid Monster.
These are just a few of the
hundreds, perhaps thousands, of
bar beverages made with alcohol
(usually vodka or flavored rum)
and Red Bull, or any of a long
list of so-called "energy drinks."
.Red Bull is the brilliantly
marketed creation of 61-year-old
Austrian Dietrich Mateschitz
*(trained by Proctor & Gamble,
Europe) and his Thai business
partner Chaleo Yoovidhya.
Yoovidhya provided the formula
and manufacturing, Mateschitz
the marketing.
Red Bull mixed with vodka
is an Eyeopener. With
Jagermeister it's a JagerBlaster
or JagerBomb, or when served
with the Jagermeister still in a
shot glass, a Train Wreck.


I
gr,



Ask


Sk Mixed
with
S re whiskey,
it's a Bull's
Balls.
In 1984
Mateschitz
and
Yoovidhya
formed a
partnership
and started
Working
Bob Serata from a
berry-fla-
vored Thai drink called Krating
Daeng (literally "red water buf-
falo") that had been around
Thailand since the early 1960s.
For the Western markets,
Mateschitz carbonated the drink,
adjusted the flavorings and
renamed it "Red Bull."
Launched in 1987, Red Bull
generated more than $2 billion
in sales worldwide last year.
The "magic" ingredients in
Red Bull are a nonessential
amino acid called taurine, a car-
bohydrate called glucuronolac-
tone, 80 milligrams of caffeine
(about the same as a cup of reg-
ular coffee) and about five tea-
spoons of sugar.
Taurine is claimed to
improve heart function, vision,
digestion and brain function. It


does in lab rats.
Glucuronolactone binds to
waste products in the body and
is then excreted, so claims have
been made that Red Bull and
other energy drinks containing
glucuronolactone have a detoxi-
fying effect on the body. But the
amount of glucuronolactone in
most of the drinks is insufficient
to provide any cleansing action.
Then, of course, there's the
caffeine and sugar. Both are
short-term stimulants and that's
the effect most bar hoppers and
club dancers are looking for.
The result is a $3.5 billion
market that grew by about 80
percent between 2004 and 2005.
Beverage Spectrum, an industry
trade magazine, lists 191 brands
in its "2007 Energy Drink
Buyers Guide." Some have gin-
seng in the drink. Others include
special teas. All are character-
ized by high quantities of caf-
feine and sugar in the drink.
There's Bomba, which comes
in a grenade-shaped bottle with
a pull-tab, Blast, from Bally
Total Fitness and 180, from
Annheuser-Busch. The list of
drinks from independent compa-
nies fills the buyers guide: Jolt

Bull), Crunk, Nuclear Waste
Antidote, Phat Phruit, Rush!,

Recipes


Here are some recipes
for Red Bull cocktails your
local bartenders can whip
up. Otherwise, try 'em at
home! Impress your friends!
Some of the recipes feature
other popular energy
drinks.

A Short Trip to Hell
1 oz Jagermelster
2 oz peach schnapps,
2 oz strawberry
schnapps
2 oz wildberry schnapps
8 oz Red Bull
Shake Red Bull, peach,
strawberry, and wild berry
schnapps in a cocktail
shaker with ice. Strain into
glass. Then put
Jagermelster into shot
glass. Drop in the shot and


Speed Freak and Vamp (from
Transylvania Imports of Beverly
Hills).
The buyers guide is filled
with advertisements from flavor
and packaging companies,
which are ready to produce your
own branded energy drink from
your very own formula (how
'bout "Keys Disease Cure,"
double-dose of caffeine and
sugar investors can email
me).
The energy drink-alcohol
cocktail isn't about getting a
booze buzz. It's about curing the
"down" side of drinking alcohol,
erasing its effect as a depressant.
Happiness, extroversion and
increased energy are the goal.
Keep on dancing. Keep on par-
tying. Keep your head up and
off the bar.

Lately, there's been a surge in
health warnings in the general
press-quoting doctors who say
mixing energy drinks (i.e., stim-
ulants) and alcohol is bad for
your health. None that I found
mentioned the tens of thousands
of Irish Coffees served at the
Buena Vista Caf6 in San
Francisco over the years, nor all
of those cups of strong coffee
served to "get you home."
Most health warnings include
the phrases "over indulgence in"
or "long term use of' and con-
clude "well, we really don't
know exactly."
One problem with which
bars, servers and drinkers must
contend is the perceived "less
drunk" feeling delivered by the
caffeine and sugar high.
While the body feels the.
stimulating effects of the energy
drink, the alcohol is still doing
its internal deed. Motor and cog-
nitive skills decrease according
to the level of alcohol in the
blood stream, or as one sheriff's
deputy said, "you just do some-
thing stupid faster."
On the other hand, some
guys at Holiday Isle credited
Red Bull and vodka for sustain-
ing the "Girls Gone Wild" series
of videos and Web sites. One
suggested Bacardi 151 (151
proof white rum) was an even

Keys jury duty beckons for Jimmy


Famed.NFL coach
and broadcaster
called to court
By DICK CONKLIN
L'Attitudes contributor

Iran into Jimmy Johnson
when I first arrived at the
Key West federal court-
house, at 7:45 a.m. He was
sitting on the front steps so I
introduced myself and he
remembered the article I
wrote about him last October.
He was upset because he had
received jury summons for
two locations on the same day
- the county court in
Marathon and the federal
court in Key West. He said he
didn't know which of the two
to choose, so he had asked his
lawyer, who recommended
putting a higher priority on
the federal court. Once
Johnson got inside, he asked
the clerk if she could resolve
the conflict. In a few minutes,
she came back saying she had
called her counterpart in
Marathon and Johnson was
excused from that obligation.
Johnson also told me that
he had some "very important
house guests" including
former Dallas Cowboys coach
Bill Parcells who were at
his home in Islamorada, and
he wanted to spend time with
them. Our tour of duty at the


federal court
S could last as
long as two
J weeks,
depending on
the trial.
We were
part of a
group of
JOHNSON about 40
people, from
which one or more juries
would be chosen. Neither
Johnson nor I were selected
from the first group, so we
waited in the hall while those
jurors were questioned and
processed. When we returned
to the courtroom, we learned
that the case had just been
settled on a plea deal, so that
jury was no longer needed.
They were free to leave.
The judge then told the rest
of us that we needed to return
on Wednesday morning for
possible jury selection on one
or more other cases. He asked
us if anyone had a problem
with returning and if anyone
had a hardship request. He
said that there were probably
more than enough of us to fill
the remaining juries, so one
or two absences shouldn't be
a problem.
Two women were excused
based on family needs. Jimmy
walked to the podium to pres-
ent his case, and the clerk
referred to him as "James


Johnson." The judge didn't
recognize him, asking him for
his current place of residence
(Islamorada), current job (Fox
TV sports analyst), former
jobs (coach of Miami
Dolphins, Dallas Cowboys,
University of Miami, etc.).
The judge finally realized
who he was, and congratulat-
ed him on driving down to
Key West and taking his civic
obligations seriously, in spite
of his celebrity status.
Johnson then asked for a
hardship exemption since he
had Bill Parcells and his fam-
ily at his Islamorada home
and wanted to spend some
time with them. He admitted
that his hardship request "was
certainly no more important
than that of anyone else in
this room."
The judge granted the
request, on one condition:
That he offer his best progno-
sis on how the University of
Florida Gators are going to
perform next football season.
Johnson then reminded the
judge that during his recent
stints on HBO and Fox


Sports, he had earned one of
the worst records on TV for
predicting the outcome of
games. That got a big laugh
from the judge and the jurors.
On his way out, several peo-
ple asked Jimmy to sign their
court summons, which he did.

Bluesman Harmon
plays the Parrot

In its tradition of making
Key West a stop for great
national touring bands, the
Green Parrot in Key West will
host one of the blues' fastest-
rising stars when Zac Harmon
takes the stage for a two-night
stand Tuesday and Wednesday.
Touring out of Mississippi
with Sam Myers by age 14, he
grew up working the same fer-
tile music territory that cultivat-
ed the likes of Sonny Boy
Williamson II, Elmore James
and Little Milton. Out of high
school, he traded the opportuni-
ties that lay on the road for the
opportunity to keep a family
promise and finish his educa-


tion before returning to music.
In the studio, he worked on
projects that ranged from scor-
ing "White Men Can't Jump" to
producing Black Uruhu's
Grammy Award winning
"Mystical Truth."
In 2004, Harmon reinvented
himself, putting together an
ensemble of six left-coast pro-
fessionals calling themselves
the Mid-South Blues Revue,
and releasing "The Blues
According to Zachariah" on his
own Bluestone Records.
In 2005, XM Radio recog-
nized their momentum by
bestowing the band with the
XM Nation Best New Blues
Artist Award.
Harmon's Green Parrot (601
Whitehead St.) shows start at
10 p.m.

'Rita' closes out season


Brash comedy
an award-winner
the world over
The Waterfront Playhouse
of Key West concludes its
season with the charming
comedy "Educating Rita" by
Willy Russell.
"Educating Rita" is the story
of a brash and earthy hairdress-
er who decides there has to be
more to life than bleaching
roots and fluffing perms. Rita
embarks on a quest for knowl-
edge that will lead her to a bet-
ter life.
After enrolling in an open
university course, she is
assigned to Frank, a disillu-
sioned professor fond of classic
literature-and scotch. Frank
reluctantly agrees to take on
this "barely educated" woman.
In her attempts to appreciate
literature, Rita challenges the
attitudes of traditional teaching,
causing Frank to question his
own understanding of his work
and himself. Together they find
themselves on a roller-coaster
ride of self discovery.
The play, opening
Wednesday, is directed by Key
West Prayers Artistic Director
Danny Weathers and stars two
of Key West's finest actors,
Claire Carroll and David Black.
"Educating Rita" was com-
missioned by the Royal
Shakespeare Company and
opened in 1980, quickly trans-
ferring to London's West End,
where it ran for two and a half
years. It won multiple awards
for best comedy and best play.
Eventually "Educating Rita"
was made into an Oscar-nomi-
nated movie starring Julie
Walters and Michael Caine,
who won Golden Globes as
best actress and actor, respec-
tively, and were nominated for
Oscars for the roles.
Russell won an Oscar for his
screenplay for the film of
"Educating Rita."
Weathers recently directed
the Waterfront's hit
"Urinetown, the Musical." as
artistic director for the Key
West Players, he has also
directed "Lettice and Lovage,"
"Equus," "The Tale of the
Allergist's Wife," "Little Shop
of Horrors" and "The Glass
Menagerie."
Carroll made a splash last

year in her Key West debut in
the Waterfront's production of
"Lettice and Lovage" as the
title character, Lettice Douffet.
Later in the season she played
the acerbic Suzanne in Monnie
King's original play "Mother's
Gift." She also appeared this
season in multiple roles in the
Waterfront's world premiere of
Carl Hiaasen's "Lucky You."
Black recently appeared as
Officer Lockstock in
"Urinetown" and was also in
"Lucky You" at the Waterfront,
as well as "A Tuna Christmas,"
"Pippin," "The Laramie
Project" and The Complete
Bible, abridged."

We're all maturing


LAWRENCE / From 2

"home."
The old days are memories,
souvenirs from our past: Henry's
railroad, pirates, wrecking, rum
running, drug running, and of
course, cheap bars and hotels.
We call it history but for those
who experienced it, they were
the good ol' days.
"Wondering where they all
disappeared to..."
I reminisced with a bartender
named Johnny B, an ex-Navy
man who came to Key West and
never left. I found he and I had
many of the same acquaintances
over the years, and it was then I
realized that the island we love
so much is growing and chang-
ing just as we've grown and
changed. While many Conchs
have left, many have not;
they've just changed, profession-
ally, personally or otherwise.
On a recent walk about the
island with an old friend, I said,
"Look at all the people, they're
all old. That's what happened to
Key West. Everybody's too old
to go out on the snorkeling
boats, the bars are closing early
because the tourists are too old
to drink and party like we used
to. What the hell are they doing
here? Key West has always been
a party town. Hell, there are
baby strollers everywhere, who
takes a baby to a bar?"
"You're as old as they are!"
she laughed. "Capt. Graybeard is
no longer the feared pirate you
once was."
She was right.
The big-five-oh is here this "
year, and as I scanned the bar
stools and stores of paradise, it


became clear to me, Key West
is, as I am, ahem, maturing.
In these times of condos,
cruise ships, baby boomers and
baby strollers, folks are still
drinking where Hemingway did,
hoping to meet Capt. Tony, pay-
ing to see Mel Fisher's treasure,
sailing to Fort Jefferson, and
hopefully learning about the his-
tory of the Flaglers, the Greenes,
the Whiteheads and the
Simontons.
What would those historic
Florida families think of my
review of the Keys of the 1970s?
What would the Tuttles think
of modem-day Miami or the
Colliers think of the southwest
side of the state?
You see, they're just history
to us, but it was the good old
days for them; and while many
of us want to point the fingers of
blame at the developers, the
commissioners, the courts and
the politicians, one needs to
remember if there was no
demand, there would be no
change. And I can't imagine Key
West without electricity, water or
a road leading to it.
The thought of having to
make passage to Cayo Hueso
aboard a sailing ship of the
1600s rattles me.
"Although many believe I did
so many times in a former
life..."
Personally, if I had to blame
any one thing on the changes in
attitudes and latitudes we see
today, I'd have to blame the
sorry S.O.B. that invented A/C.

Seems to me any Organic
Chem 101 lecture would say
that if you're going to mix a
stimulant and a depressant to be
taken internally, be careful and
keep the doses low. But, of
course, the same could be said
for the individual components.
Maybe we should change the
slogan "drink responsibly" to
"mix responsibly."
