Park zoning could change


Lucky's Landing
residents fight on
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Planning
Commission today has the fate
of some 20 mobile-home resi-
dents in its hand, but a
groundswell of opposition to


redevelopment has far-reaching
implications.
During today's meeting at the
Marathon Government Center,
the Planning Commission will
determine whether to allow the
owner of Lucky's Landing
mobile-home park a change in
zoning that could pave the way
to redevelopment. The meeting


begins at 10 a.m.
"There are many, many rea-
sons why Lucky's Landing is not
entitled to a zoning change,"
attorney Robert Cintron wrote in
a letter he distributed to the
County Commission last week.
He represents several park
residents who received eviction
notices from landowner Lucky's

Council ponders
the new rule
Thursday night
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The 331 vacation-rental units
allowed in Islamorada will be
assessed a $1,000 annual fee
under a rule to be considered
Thursday by the Islamorada
Village Council.
The $331,000 raised annually
by the permits would go toward
hiring a code-enforcement offi-
cer for vacation rentals, along
with funding a planning review
and processing cost for the
applications, says a report from
Village Manager Gary Word.
Vacation rentals generally
described as homes, apartments
or condominiums in residential
areas that are rented on a short--
term basis like a hotel suite -
have been a topic of intense
debate since Islamorada incor-
porated in 1997.
As proposed, units properly


licensed as of Dec. 6, 2001,'
would receive priority for the
first 331 vacation-rental licenses
in Islamorada.
If the limit is not reached,
other owners could apply if they
meet new criteria.
The annual fee paid by vaca-
tion-rental owners would pay for
increased enforcement to crack
down on unlicensed units being
rented to vacationers.
New vacation rentals would
not be allowed in most zoning
areas that cover single-family-
home neighborhoods.
The 331-unit limit for vaca-
tion rentals in Islamorada was
adopted at state insistence so
affordable-housing residences
would not be converted to short-
term rentals.
In other items at the 5:30 p.m.
Thursday meeting at the
Islamorada Fire Station, mile
marker 81.9, the council will:
+ Consider a contract with
Gary Hall Sr. of The Race Club
Inc. to run swimming programs
at Founders Park aquatic com-
plex. Hall is a three-time


Olympic swimmer and an
inducted member of the
International Swimming Hall of
Fame. He also is the father of
Gary Hall Jr., winner of five
Olympic gold medals.
Consider land-use issues,
including two proposed settle-
ments with landowners who
appealed village decisions on
living-unit allocation.
Carl Lindback's Lorelei prop-
erty should have the right to
build four housing units, all to be
sold at market rate, a special
master recommends. Two would
be limited in size to less than
1,800 square feet. The Village
Council wanted two of four units
designated for affordable hous-
ing. The magistrate ruled that
Islamorada code does not man-
date affordable designation in
some cases.
Kulisky Broadcasting Inc.
should be able to redevelop the
Coral Grill site to hold either
three market-rate units, or 12
affordable-housing units, the
master recommended. The com-
pany sought 12 market-rate
units; the council recommended
three affordable units.


Legislature extends Citizens freeze
**>


Companies say
some provisions
in bill unfair-
Associated Press

The state Legislature voted
Friday to extend a rate freeze
for customers of Citizens
Property Insurance Corp.
The measure was a top prior-
ity of Gov. Charlie Crist, but
among the last bills passed by
the Legislature before it ended
its regular 60-day session
Friday afternoon.
It also forces regulators to
factor in the national profits of
insurance companies when
determining Florida rates.
It would also prevent nation-
al insurance companies from
setting up Florida-only sub-
sidiaries, which Crist has com-
plained allows companies to
seek higher rates by claiming
poverty in Florida while making
a profit nationally.
Crist praised the Legislature
for sending him the bill, and


took a fierce stab at the industry
he's made a habit of blaming for
high premiums.
"I hear some groans from
insurance lobbyists," Crist said
after lawmakers adjourned.
"Tough. It's a new day in this
place."
The House passed the bill
(SB 2498) 106-10. A short time
later it passed unanimously in
the Senate and was sent to Crist.
The feature of the bill that
will be immediately felt by the
most people will extend a freeze
in rates for customers of state-
backed Citizens, the largest
property insurer in the state.
The company's rates were
frozen by lawmakers at current
levels in January until the end of
2007. They will now remain at
current levels until the end of
2008.
Insurance companies said the
section dealing with their
national profits is unfair, saying
Floridians wouldn't stand for
paying higher rates to pay for
California's earthquake risk, for


example.
"It sends a bad message that
you're going to do rates in
Florida unlike any other state or
jurisdiction in the world," said
Mark Delegal, a lobbyist for
State Farm Insurance.
Delegal also hammered at
the provision preventing future
Florida-only subsidiaries, even
though it wouldn't affect com-
panies like State Farm that
already have offshoots here.
If they can't segregate their
Florida risk, they simply won't
come, insurers argue.
The measure, sponsored by
Sen. Rudy Garcia, R-Hialeah,
and Rep. Julio Robaina, R-
Miami, also makes it likely
state-backed Citizens will
expand, allowing residents to
buy insurance from the compa-
ny if private companies rates
would be 15 percent higher than
what Citizens can offer.
The effort to expand Citizens
passed over the objections of a
number of inland lawmakers
who would rather do away
with the state company than
expand it.

Feral-cat roundup starts this month


Ongoing census
in wildlife refuge
needs completion
By JESSICA MACHETTA
jmachetta@keynoter.com

U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service officials are moving
forward to reduce the number
of feral cats in the National
Key Deer Refuge on Big Pine
Key in efforts to protect
endangered marsh rabbits.
Amid public criticism, Fish
& Wildlife says they are tak-
ing steps to preserve the lives
of the cats that are eventually
trapped, and residents will be
,able to reclaim domestic cats
should any be taken in by
error.
After an ongoing can cen-
sus is complete, according to
refuge Director Anne Morkill,


trapping is scheduled to begin
on or after May 21.
"They put out little sand-
boxes-to see if there are little
footprints in them in areas
where rabbits are known to
be," said Sandy Brown, board
member of Friends and
Volunteers of Refuges
(FAVOR) and self-proclaimed
cat lover. "Don't forget the
rabbits aren't the only victims,
[but also] rice rats, indigo
snakes and other critters that
have become victims of wild
cats."
Numbers from the census
are not yet available, Morkill
said, but "we don't expect
there are large numbers.
Whether it's a few dozen or
less than that, we'll find out
when we start trapping and
we'll revise the program as
needed as we go along."


Morkill emphasized that
this is a pilot project to see if
cat predation on marsh rabbits
can be effectively reduced,
and that more information will
come from pre- and post-trap-
ping surveys.
"We can evaluate whether
this is a tool that we can use to
give a boost to the marsh-rab-
bit population -that has
declined," she said. The com-
prehensive program also looks
at "habitat restoration, pur-
chasing private, vacant land
from willing sellers and also
trans-locating rabbits, to suit-
able habitats on other islands."
FAVOR has donated $3,500
for cages for the shelter on Big
Pine "in case they need to
expand it for the number of
cats coming in," Brown added.
"Although there are rumors to
the contrary, there are
absolutely no plans to eutha-
nize the cats. We have hopes


Sheriff's office would contribute

deterrent. Our island is growing
so fast."
Surveillance cameras in pub-
lic rights of way were once con-
troversial, but they've become
fairly commonplace the past
four or five years. In fact, sur-
veillance cameras have solved a
number of Florida crimes,
including the 2006 beating of
several homeless men in Fort
Lauderdale after the incidents
were caught on camera.
Neville said the security tax-
ing district has been in effect
since the early 1990s. Home-
owners pay $200 annually; own-
ers of vacant lots pay $50 a year.
The fee, which shows up on
property owners' regular tax bill,


has been used for years to bol-
ster security with the hiring of a
private security guard.
"Ocean Reef has about 60
cameras," Neville said, referring
to the Upper Keys gated com-
munity. "We're hoping the sys-
tem we get will be expandable
so we can add cameras as need-
ed."
However, Ocean Reef is a
private community; Duck Key is
not.
Neville says if the county
approves cameras for Duck Key,
early estimates indicate the start-
up cost at about $35,000.
If approved, Sheriff Rick
Roth said, the Sheriff's Office
would contribute financially to
the project.
Roth said aside from Ocean
Reef, the only other surveillance


cameras are those installed by
the Florida Department of
Transportation along U.S. 1.
"We haven't started using
those for traffic," Roth said,
"because they're not on real
time. There's a bit of a delay."
Di Gennaro is also asking the
commission to consider adding a
bike ard pedestrian walkway to
two Duck Key bridges. Each
bridge has a hump that leaves a
blind spot so that drivers do not
see bicycles or pedestrians until
they're practically on top of
them.
"It's a real safely issue," he
said. "It should have been done a
long time ago."
"The bridges were adequate
15 years ago," Neville said. "But
with all the growth on Duck
Key, it's just too dangerous."


that this effort will contribute
to people rethinking how they
deal with their cats and
encourage them to keep them
indoors."
During the roundup, photos
of all cats captured will. be
posted at the shelter as well at
the Chamber of Commerce


Visitor's Center at mile mark-
er 31 for those looking for a
lost cat.
Meanwhile, Linda Gottwald,
director of Stand Up for
Animals, is working to find
alternative locations outside the
Keys for the feral cats to live
out their years, Morkill said.

County cash
for 'Vandenberg'
is the issue
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Uncertainty at the legisla-
tive level" over property tax
reform leaves a lot of local
governments leery of the
upcoming budget season, so
the Monroe County Com-
mission will look at a means of
alleviating a $2 million com-
mitment to sink a ship.
State lawmakers ended the
2007 regular session Friday
without finalizing some pro-
posals to cut local property
taxes. Until a special session in
June, local governments are in
limbo when it comes to craft-
ing their 2008 budgets.
Next week, the County
Commission will consider a
resolution asking for reim-
bursement from the Tourist
Development Council of $2
million the county committed
in October to sink the former
military ship USS Hoyt

Vandenberg off Key West as an
artificial reef.
The funding, slipped into
the county's $373 million 2007
budget at the last minute, is
slated to come out of the coun-
ty's infrastructure sales tax,
That fund is earmarked for
capital improvements and
sewer construction.
Though the expenditure was
approved, County Clerk Danny
Kolhage insisted the money
not be allocated until the 520-
foot boat hits the bottom about
7 miles off Key West.
"As this project is a draw
for tourism," County Adminis-
trator Tom Willi wrote in the
staff summary, "and there is a
great need for other infrastruc-
ture projects in the county, it is
appropriate to seek reimburse-
ment of this funding from
the Tourist Development
Council."
The county would seek the


$2 million grant from the
TDC's capital projects fund-
ing.
The $5.7 million expense to
purchase and sink the ship is
being shared by the county,
TDC and the city of Key West.
Key West has pledged $1.3
million, and the TDC another
$1 million. The U.S. Maritime
Administration has promised
another $1.25 million.
The project's founder, Joe
Weatherby, says the sinking
will likely occur in the spring
of 2008.
The dive industry has advo-
cated sinking the ship, saying
it will take tourism pressure off
the natural reef and encourage
added tourism.
The County Commission
meets May 16 at the Key Largo
library beginning at 9 a.m. The
meeting is broadcast live on
Comcast Channel 76 and on
the county's Web site at
www.monroecof I.virtual

Zone change up for vote


LUCKY'S /From 1

Landing Inc. Along with the
Seahorse RV Park on Big Pine
Key, Lucky's Landing has
become a poster child of disap-
pearing affordable housing in
the Keys.
Park owner Jack Warner
seeks a change in zoning from.
urban residential mobile home
to urban residential, which
would allow more units than the
current zoning allows by permit-
ting a multiple-unit complex
rather than individual detached
ones.
Hundreds of signatures and
letters poured into the county's
Planning Department in opposi-
tion to the proposed change.
Many letters came from resi-
dents concerned that the eradica-
tion of mobile-home parks will
do away with what many call the
last available workforce housing
in the.,eys.
A slew of form letters note
the county is in the process of
creating a Livable Communi-
Keys master plan for future
development aimed at retaining
community character.
"Please do not approve the
first big condominium project in


the Lower Keys," reads the letter
signed by dozens of Keys resi-
dents.
"To allow the undisclosed
people who are behind the rede-
velopment of Lucky's Landing
to rezone the Lucky's Landing
property would begin the down-
ward spiral of converting the
Lower Keys into everything the
residents of the Lower Keys
have clearly stated they do not
want," Cintron said in his letter
to the County Commission.
Mike Cunningham, Warner's
developer, told the County
Commission that lot-rental rates
are controlled by the state, and
that those controls have not kept
up with the expense of operating
a park.
"The mobile-home era has
come and gone," he said, "at
least for this waterfront proper-
ty."
The Planning Commission, at
its last meeting, approved the
concept of a six-month morato-
rium on park redevelopment.
The County Commission has yet
to approve such a move.
A one-year moratorium
ended a year ago, and the county
established a preservation ordi-
nance before that moratorium
expired.

'They didn't let any of us know it was coming'


CAY CLUBS / From I

"We are reorganizing to get
structured as we need to operate
as a public company," he said.
"There are certain ways a compa-
ny has to act as a public entity.
We need to get things in a way
that will be accepted by share-
holders."
A slowdown in the housing
market also was a factor, Rego
said.
"It is a down market. Several
developers across the country are
going out of business," Rego
said. "We need to make sure we
can prosper through a down mar-
ket so we're one of the compa-
nies that stay in business."

master at Key Largo's Pilot
House Marina owned by Cay
Clubs International, was among
those fired.
"They told me they're cutting
back on funds so they're letting
people go," Collins said. "They
gave me no options. There was
no warning. They didn't let any
of us know it was coming."
Collins was angered that he
will not receive two weeks of
vacation pay he says the compa-
ny owes him. "I've still got bills
coming in and I'm out.of a job,"
Collins said. "I was counting on
that money."
Said Rego, "Believe me, [Cay
Clubs founder and Chief
Executive Officer Dave Clark]
does not feel good, about what
we're having to do.
"This is not something that
anyone takes pleasure in.... He
feels terrible about the people


that are being affected."
Some workers who live in
employee housing rented from
Cay Clubs worried about being
forced to leave their apartments.
"All those kinds of things are
being looked at," Rego said. "We
won't put anybody on the street.
There are signed leases and we
will abide by the terms of the
leases."
Cay Clubs holdings in the
Keys include nine resorts and
five restaurants. The Clear-
water-based company is "the
largest operator of marina/boat
slips in the Keys," according to a
memo Clark sent out about the
pending merger.
In March, Cay Clubs
announced plans to merge with
Keys Hospitality Acquisition
Corp. so the company can issue
stock as a publicly traded firm.
"This is a companywide reor-
ganization, not just in the Keys
properties. It's across the board,"
Rego said. "We are re-evaluating
what works and what doesn't
work."
He said, "We tried to keep
people employed for as long as
possible, but you can't keep pay-
ing everybody if it means you're
losing money. It's a business
decision, but it's one we feel
badly about...."
Jeff Pinkus, a Cay Clubs proj-
ect manager in the Middle Keys,
did not run for rd-election to the
Marathon City Council this year
citing his ties to the development
firm.
"At this point, my position
with Cay Clubs is status quo,"
Pinkus said. "I have not been let

Collins, a six-year Keys resi-
dent, said he was hired away
from the Mariners Club develop-
ment two years ago to take over
at the Pilot House Marina, a 33-
slip marina with dry-storage
space for 44 boats.
"I left a good job with stabili-
ty to go with them. Now I'll prob-
ably have to leave the Keys," he
said. "Between Cay Clubs and


[the Mariners Club owner], they
own all the marinas down here."
Cay Clubs was founded in
2004 by Clark, a former
Earthmark executive. That com-
pany developed Mariners Club
and is redeveloping Knights Key
in Marathon.
Cay Clubs came in for some
criticism for changing the face of
the Keys, but Cay Clubs has
donated to many local causes.
The firm had entered a con-
tract with the Monroe County
School District more than a year
ago to buy the former Marathon


Manor nursing home adjacent to
Marathon High School.
Cay Clubs officials said they
would develop the property into
affordable housing for their own
staff and school staff and deed
over a portion of the land to the
district for athletic fields and
parking.
On April 27, Cay Clubs
dropped out of the $7.4 million
deal.

Consumers win one

with freeze on Citizens
Eleventh-hour reprieves can sometimes seem to be the most
welcome.
Perhaps that will prove true of the Legislature's decision, on
the final day of its regular session, to extend the rate freeze for
Citizens Property Insurance Corp. another year.
During a special session in January, the state's lawmakers -
with frequent prodding by Gov. Charlie Crist imposed a rate
freeze that would have expired at the end of this year.
Friday, that freeze was extended to the end of 2008.
That doesn't-solve the larger problem of high windstorm
rates in the private insurance market, concerns about under-
writing and building up reserves in the event of a catastrophe.
And there are still questions about rate relief for commercial
lines, which include tens of thousands of business and condo
owners throughout the state.
What is heartening about this last-minute vote is the tide
turned in the closing days of the session with intense pressure
being brought by insurance industry lobbyists to scuttle any
further reform on windstorm or efforts to broaden Citizens'
mandate.
In Tuesday's Miami Herald, business reporter Beatrice
Garcia quotes a spokesman for the Florida Insurance Council
as saying that "...the Legislature and Gov. Crist see the [insur-
ance] industry as the enemy. In other states, lawmakers are
working with the industry."
Crist must have heard that same complaint from others and
took note of industry pressure brought to. bear on both House
and Senate members in the waning days of the session.
"I hear some groans from insurance lobbyists," Crist said
after the Legislature adjourned. "Tough. It's a new day in this
place."
We hope he proves prophetic because the industry is still tak-
ing aim at provisions that will allow Florida property owners
outside the so-called high hazard zones to opt into Citizens
coverage if private insurance is more than 15 percent higher.
That broadens the scope of Citizens' mission and puts a cap
on the series of multi-digit rate increases that were being hand-
ed down in 2005 and 2006.
Another proviso drawing industry fire involves the use of
subsidiaries to "insulate" parent companies when it comes time
to file for rate increases.
The practice of forming Florida-only subsidiaries will be pro-
hibited after Jan. 1 of 2008. Existing subsidiaries will be grand-
fathered .in, but their parent companies will be required to
include information about profits when they file for rate
changes with Florida insurance regulators.
So where some in the industry see the latest actions by the
Legislature as anti-competitive, we see the playing field being
leveled a bit so ratepayers aren't always the fall guys.

Ramos' death is a shock from far away


EDITOR:
I am one little star that daddy Charlie
Ramos Jr. adopted in his heart, one little angel
whom he didn't know of but took good care,
regardless of the distance we had between each
other.
Although I am not so much known by many
in Key West and Miami, I believe that daddy
Charlie has always been so proud of me, with
the rest of his colleagues. And I have tried my
best to live up to his encouragements for me, to
reach the dreams I wanted to reach for me to
satisfy my expectations for my future.
Today is a moment of grief for me. I had felt
so bad with myself that the only special person


in my life had left, and I am not there. His wis-
dom lives in me and he will never be away
from my heart.
With dad's generosity and kindness, it's
really a great loss for all of us. I got to know
his death from an online newspaper article. I've
not known how I could describe how I felt.
I would try my best to live the way he told
me so I could at least have done something for
him. He will always live in my heart. I pray
that in the future, I would still be a part of his
family.

Saying no to new ideas gets us nowhere


EDITOR:
Every tax sales tax, bed tax, transfer tax,
etc. that has been proposed for creating a
trust fund for workforce housing has a con-
stituency vehemently opposed to it. A sales tax
would be branded regressive, a bed tax will be
opposed by hoteliers, a transfer tax by Realtors,
etc. Therefore, any politician that suggests any
tax will be pilloried and pummeled.
Key West Mayor Morgan McPherson went
about trying to allow an additional bed tax be
placed in state legislation so it would be avail-
able to our county and city as a local option.
The criticism was that he took this action,
which would have allowed debate and a vote by
referendum, without proper pre-debate and the
blessing of his board or our state representative.
It is amazing to me that we elect people
whom we feel will be bold enough to assume a
leadership role in our community and then
spend more time and energy questioning their
motives and criticizing their actions, while they
try to attack the really difficult problems facing
us, than we spend supporting the solutions they .
offer.
Housing at all income levels has become our


Community class a hit
EDITOR:
I recently purchased a home computer with no
knowledge of how to operate it. I hired two local
"experts" to teach me just the very basics. These
"experts" could design Web sites and do all sorts
of neat stuff with a computer. However, they had
apparently no idea how to teach someone that is
computer illiterate. I spent over $200 and still
'couldn't tell you the difference between the tool
bar and a mouse.
For $40, I enrolled in Monroe County's voca-
tional, adult and community education class that
teaches basic computer skills. This class was
taught-in an easy, informal manner with each stu-
dent getting plenty of personal help from Carlos,
our instructor.
I learned a lot in this class and wish to thank
the wonderful, staff for the great job they are
doing.

most pressing problem. As we continue to lose
our working residents (4,500 the past five
years) and our affordable rentals (21.6 percent
the last five years) and our trailer parks (10 the
past five years), we find ourselves in a housing
crisis that can't be fixed by declaring an emer-
gency or by talking or by lamenting. Solutions
require action and mayors and commissioners
committed to taking them.
Personally, I am for any tax that will be
specifically spent to save and build workforce
housing. A tax on tourists? I'm for it. A real
estate transfer tax? I'm for it. A tax on bars,
restaurants, attractions or a sales tax? I'm for it.
You name the source and I'm for it, and until
we as a community are willing to commit to
identifying a revenue source to fund this prob-
lem we will continue to eat away at the core,
the very soul of the community.
Plainly put, we are gutting our city and
county and removing those first who make this
an interesting, safe and nice place to live.
So hooray for Mayor McPherson and anyone
else that wants to force this issue to public
debate and then vote solutions up or down. No,
he did not ask anyone's permission; he just took
action when he could have instead of allowing
another legislative year to go by so we could all
just talk about it some more.

Marathon kids had Easter event


EDITOR:
This is in response to Mark
Senmartin's letter of April 28
regarding Easter for the children
of Marathon.
The Rotary Club of Marathon
held an Easter egg hunt at the
Rotary Children's Park the
Saturday before Easter. Around
125 children were in attendance
along with parents, grandparents,
aunts and uncles. The many activi-
ties included egg painting, egg
hunt, bunny-ring toss, bunny
bowling, Juggles the Clown enter-
tained, jelly-bean guess and much


more. Prizes were handed out and
each child left with a smile. Food,
beverages and treats made by
Rotary members were served to
all.
This event was sponsored by
the Rotary Club with the intent to
make this an annual event. Much
was learned this first year, leaving
the Easter event to improve over
the years. Rotary takes pride in
serving our community, and the
children of Marathon.

Teacher exemplifies school spirit


EDITOR:
I wanted to write to let everyone
know about a teacher we have at
Marathon High School. This
teacher is Frank Lenning, a math
instructor from Wisconsin. This is
his first year at Marathon and
already he has been to more school
functions than some teachers that
have been here for five or more
years.
I coach softball and football at
Marathon High and from my home-
field third-base coaching box, I was,
always sure to see Frank. He
became an icon to our field. He
would often come in to my office
and see what we were serving at
the concession stand for the next
game. He volunteered to run the
clock at the basketball games and


did stats for baseball when he was-
n't at our softball games.
I just wish more people had the
school spirit and support that Frank
Lenning has shown in his short
time with Marathon High. Frank
will do anything for the students
here and his co-workers, as well.
Mr. Lenning began a game night
for students to come and have
something to do in the evenings; he
has also helped a fellow teacher
study for the teaching exam. This is
the kind of person that Marathon
High School and city were built
upon, and I want everyone to know
his name and welcome him with
open arms to our quaint little fish-
ing town.

Graffiti speads messages of hate


EDITOR:
With the recent events at
Virginia Tech, Columbine,
Jonesboro and others, I expect most
would agree that we need to be pro-
viding our youth with an environ-
ment that supports safety, compas-
sion and tolerance. However, in
past months, students at Marathon
Middle School have been provided
with an environment bathed in hate.
Bathroom walls and large indeli-
ble markers have been the new
instructional tools in the education
of our kids. These are not the old
days of small, harmless, ballpoint-
pen scribbles. These are the days of
bold, 5-inch-high writings of
hatred.
Phrases like "everyone should
just die and go to hell" or "blank is
[expletive deleted]" are just a cou-
ple of examples of the new instruc-
tional messages being delivered to
our seventh- and eighth-grade girls
over the past months.
Thankfully, when the Monroe
County schools superintendent was


informed of this situation by con-
cerned parents, he took matters into
his own hands and ensured the
words of hate were removed imme-
diately. Let there be no doubt,
Randy Acevedo did the right thing
and he did it quickly.
But some important questions
still remain: How could the princi-
pal allow these preachings of
hatred to remain on our kids' walls
for so many months? How could he
allow these writings to exist at the
same time our country mourns the
death of some of the nation's best
and brightest at Virginia Tech? And
finally, why in the world did par-
ents have to get the superintendent
involved in order to have these
vicious words removed from our
kids' school?
'No small wonder that we had a
bomb threat at Marathon High.
After all, we have always expected
our kids to apply what they have
been taught in school.

Jones


pleads


innocent

By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Assistant City Manager John
Jones will waive his appearance
for his 9 a.m. arraignment
scheduled for today before
Judge Wayne Miller, and his
lawyer Cara Higgs has already
filed a written plea of not guilty.
Jones was charged with two
counts of falsely impersonating
a certificate holder April 20 for
signing off on two certificates of
occupancy when he's not
licensed to do so.
Higgs said she has asked" the
state for the discovery evidence
and she's yet to give it. She also
asked for a jury trial, she said.
"I think this [Jones' arrest] is
a politically motivated fishing
expedition," she added, in refer-
ence to the desire of some city
staff, including Key West Mayor
Morgan McPherson, to uncover
possible wrongdoing by City
Manager Julio Avael.
"If my client is guilty of any-
thing, it is serving his city," she
said. "He has an obligation to
serve the members of this com-
munity and when other people
aren't doing so, my client was
forced to step in and do some-
thing about it."
Jones signed a certificate of
occupancy for the Department
of Children and Families on Jan.
17, 2006. DCF's previous
offices were flooded by
Hurricane Wilma and uninhabit-
able, according to Flora Beal,
agency director of communica-
tions for Miami-Dade and
Monroe counties. ,
Jones is also charged with
illegally signing a temporary 90-
day certificate of occupancy for
Pat Croce's Rum Barrel bar and
restaurant on Feb. 3, 2006.
According to the arrest affi-
davit, Jones was not authorized
to sign either certificate. A certi-
fied building official is the only
proper signer for such a certifi-
cate.
According to Higgs, this is
the "first" charge of this nature
the State Attorney's Office has
ever filed, and she plans on it
being the "last."

Monoxide-detector law likely


And lawsuits
against hotel
are piling up
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The state Legislature
adjourned Friday with a bill
heading to Gov. Charlie Crist's
desk that would require installa-
tion of carbon monoxide detec-
tors in hotel rooms across Florida
by July 1, 2008.
But the first of 27 lawsuits
against the DoubleTree Grand
Key Resort is likely to see its first
appearance in court a few months
before.
The legislative initiative was'a
result of lobbying on behalf of
Richard Lueders, father of
Thomas Lueders, an aspiring
-writer who died of carbon
monoxide poisoning while vaca-
tioning at the Key West resort in
December.
If signed as expected by Crist,
the mandate would require detec-
tors in all public lodgings as well
as be installed no more than 10
feet away from. bedrooms in
homes or apartments built after
July 1, 2008, with adjoining
garages, gas heaters, fireplaces or
other appliances.
The bill, sponsored by Rep.
Eduardo Gonzalez, R-Hialeah, is
an effort to prevent deaths such as
Lueders'. Some 500 Americans
die each year from the poisonous
gas, according to the U.S. Centers
for Disease Control. Its study also
indicates that 15,000 Americans
are poisoned from unintentional,


non-fire-related carbon monox-
ide.
The symptoms of carbon
monoxide poisoning include nau-
sea and dizziness, and according
to the center's Web site, can be
prevented with simple measures
including:
Having oil, gas or coal-
burning appliances annually
checked by a technician.
Installing and periodically
checking battery-operated CO
detectors.
Refraining from heating
your house with a gas oven, or
cooking on a grill near your win-
dows.
Refraining from burning
anything in a stove or fireplace
that isn't vented.
Gonzalez sponsored the bill in
honor of the late Janelle Bertot
and Anthony Perez of Miami-
Dade, who died from carbon
monoxide poisoning in their car
in Weston in 2004.
Richard and Susan Lueders
are now involved in a civil suit
set for April 2008 against the
DoubleTree, where a lethal mis-
take in the fourth-floor boiler
room caused the colorless, odor-
less gas to leak into Thomas and
Richard Lueders' room next door.
Besides the Lueders suit, there
are 26 others against the
DoubleTree, says attorney Ira
Leesfield, who represents all 26,
including the Smith family of
Iowa, who stayed in the same
Room 416 Thomas and Richard
Lueders did.
"These people had a defective
hotel," Leesfield said.

Sobriety checkpoints
yield four DUI arrests

Two Upper Keys sobriety
checkpoints over the weekend
netted four arrests for drunk
driving, according to the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
Friday, a checkpoint at mile
marker 103 appears to have suc-
ceeded in keeping drunk drivers
off the road. Sgt. Eric Mixon,
who organized the effort, says
they had no drunk drivers
stopped over the five hours,
from 10 p.m. Friday until 3 a.m.
Saturday. He said he noticed


more taxis on the highway than
usual and said there were a num-
ber of drunk passengers in cars
stopped in the checkpoint, but
they all had designated sober
drivers transporting them.
Deputies checked 361 cars
that night.
Saturday at the checkpoint at
mile marker 90, officers admin-
istered nine field sobriety tests
to people who appeared to be
impaired, resulting in four
arrests for driving under the
influence of alcohol.
Officers at the checkpoint
stopped a total of 509 vehicles in
five hours.


The Lueders are represented
by West Palm Beach attorney
Gregory Barnhart of Searcy,
Denney, Scarola and Shipley.
"I think this is an excellent
case," Barnhart said. "They [the
resort] had notice and they
ignored it."
Barnhart added that the hotel's
actions cross the boundaries of
"negligence" and could easily
constitute "recklessness."
According to Barnhart,
Richard and Thomas Lueders
experienced a hypoxic injury, one
that binds red carbon monoxide
to blood cells, depriving them of
necessary oxygen. Thomas
Lteders was treated for his ill-
ness.
The DoubleTree's shoddy
repairs and adjustments made to a
boiler room next to Room 416 led
to the death of 26-year-old
Richard, according to investiga-
tions completed by the state Fire
Marshal's Office and the Key
West Police Department.
After the Monroe County
State Attorney's Office reviewed
those reports and conducted an
investigation of its own, the
office said it could not prove any-
thing criminal occurred.

Tourists John and Jocelyn Alldredge of Nags Head, N.C., say Key West's parking problem is
apparent to them just from their visit. The couple rented an electric car from Blue Sky Rentals.
A city panel is looking for ways to alleviate the problem.


Parking panel seeks answers


Group wants
more traffic
in the garages
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Camille Baltz, owner of
Camille Body Boutique on 309
Petronia St., Key West, says she
has a difficult time finding
employees willing to work in Old
Town because of the lack of
available parking.-
And the problem goes beyond
running a business, she said.
"The city of Key West should
be inviting any residents from
Key Largo down to come eat,
shop and drink in Key West with-
out any hassle," she said.
Last fiscal year, the city raked
in $3.28 million in overall park-
ing revenue, and with seven
months completed in 2007's fis-
cal year, the city has totaled
almost $2 million in revenue,
according to reports from the
Finance Department.
Numbers like those have resi-
dents and business owners like
Baltz asking: Where exactly is all
the parking?
The city has responded by
forming a group of staff informal-
ly dubbed the parking review
committee, which is determined
to remedy one of Key West's
biggest problems. The committee
met Friday.


City engineer and committee
member Roland Flowers said that
issuing parking permits was
determined an issue at the meet-
ing, and defined the goal of park-
ing meters as "turning over traf-
fic," although many tourists leave
their cars parked at meters for
extended periods of time and
receive citations for $25.
The city issued 42,100 cita-
tions last fiscal year, and collect-
ed about 47 percent of the money
for those parking tickets back,
according to the finance report.
The group's goal is to send
people to the parking lots instead
of the meters, Flowers said.
According to the finance
report, in the 2006 fiscal year, the
city gained $1,096,974 in meter
revenue, and through April the
2007 fiscal year has gained
$655,375 thus far.
Baltz believes some of this
money could be used to inform
residents of the parking laws -
like the fact that anyone with a
Monroe County license plate can
park in any of the residential
spots.
City staff and officials such as
Commissioner Bill Verge have
proposed urging parking garages
to lower their prices to attract
more drivers to park in them, and
free up some of the metered
spaces in Old Town.
But for Baltz, that idea still
leaves a problem with residents.


"The locals don't want to park
in garages," she said.
Another issue raised among
city staffers is electric-car compa-
nies that purchase commercial
parking permits for their vehicles.
Sunshine Rentals and Reef
Mobile practice this business.
City officials claim they are
parking -in congested areas like
Clinton Square and advertising to
tourists coming off cruise ships.
But Pam Gorman, manager of
Reef Mobile, said she doesn't
promote that kind of business.
Reef Mobile bought six per-
mits from the city for its 35 vehi-
cles and the company closely fol-
lows the rules of off-premise can-
vassing, she said. Gorman tells
her customers they are restricted
from parking in residential or
hotel spaces, and driving on
North and South Roosevelt, and
the renters must be 21, she said.
According to Gage, far fewer
complaints have been called in
since the installation of two new
parking stations on Duval and
Greene streets.
The solar-powered stations are
about 5 feet tall and 18 inches
wide with blue paint and a white
P. They allow drivers to grab a
ticket from the station, place it on
their dashboard, and park and pay
with credit, debit card, cash or
coins.
The group will discuss more
on parking at the city's strategic
meeting May 22 at the
DoubleTree Grand Key Resort.

easy to take for granted the abil-
ity to shower once, sometimes
*even a couple, times a day. But
for some people in Key West,
that daily shower depends on the
continued kindness of strangers.
"We're going to have to relo-
cate them," Assistant City
Manager John Jones said of the
public showers located the last
four years at the Key West
Police Department.' "That's not
the best place. They're taking up

By ALYSON CREAN

The Key West-based envi-
ronment organization Last
Stand has objected to'proposed
safety extensions at one end of
Key West International Airport,
saying the work would damage
a delicate natural balance.
"We reject the extension of
filled area at the west end of the
runway into the Duck Pond,"
the organization's board said in
a statement issued last week.
As part of a four-year-old
plan to extend safety overruns
at the airport, composite materi-
als would be added to each end
of the runway to bring the
unique island tarmac closer to
Federal Aviation Administration
standards.
Last Stand opposes the pro-
posal for the west end of the
runway that would fill part of a
five-acre salt pond, reconfigur-
ing it around the fill. The group
says the delicate pond has a
lower salinity than the rest of
the surrounding salt ponds and
provides rare habitat for migrat-
ing birds, an environment that
could not easily be recreated in
the more than 20 acres of
planned mitigation.
Last Stand is not opposed to
work on the other end of the
runway.
"The east end is by far the
most dangerous," the board said
in its official statement, "since
95 percent of the takeoffs and
landings occur in that direc-


e gl a ck/s s o ger JL, 1. ll^ L J1: yA / -u L o .,
have surprised the community.
"What struck me during [a
recent] is that a significant num-
ber are employed," said Rev.
David Wilt from St. Paul's
Episcopal Church. "Many were
homeless, but not all of them."
In fact, a May 2 survey of
users showed that 20 percent
were not homeless, but did not
have electricity or running water
in their residences.
Of the 50 people showering
on that particular day, 37 were
employed, according to Stephen
Braddock, executive director of
the Florida Keys Outreach


tion."
Airport Director Peter
Horton says specially designed,
.sloped gravel surfaces called
Engineered Materials Arresting
Systems would provide a safety
margin using less space than
traditional runway overruns.
Last Stand acknowledged the
system would provide safety
while minimizing the environ-
mental impact.
The proposed extension is in


tain, chef and retail manager,"
he said.
Jones says he hopes to find a
new location for the facility
within the next 30 to 90 days,
though he worries about com-
plaints from nearby residents.
Even at the police station, peo-
ple complained about the facili-
ty's proximity to Horace
O'Bryant Middle School. The
complaints roll in even though
there has never been any sort of
"incident" at the showers, Jones
said.
"Nobody hangs out there,"
Jones said. "People come. in,


the public review process, and
Last Stand's objections are part
of that review.
Overall, the project would
run upward of $12 million,
Horton said. Most of that will
be paid by the FAA; passenger
fees will pay the balance.
In its statement, Last Stand
insists on more study if its
objection is ignored.
"More study would be need-
ed on the severe impacts of fill-
ing a salt pond and appropriate
mitigation."


concerns that gave rise to the
showers was a particularly viru-
lent strain of staph infection that
raged through the homeless
community.
Braddock asked the users of
the'facility where they would
clean up if the showers were
unavailable. Among the answers
were the beach, public and hotel
pools,-and restaurant and retail
restrooms.
"When you look at the alter-
native bathing places," Wilt
said, "the showers serve such a
purpose for people struggling to
get through life down here."
As soon as something is con-
crete, he said, the Key West City
Commission would need to
approve a move.

Early voting ends Friday for village referendum


Voters decide-

several questions

to set policy
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhiue@keysreporter.com

Early voting for Islamorada
Tuesday referendum election
ends at.4:30 p.m. Friday
People can cast their ballots
at the Plantation Key branch
of the Monroe County
Supervisor of Election's


Office at mile marker 88.
On Election Day, voting is
scheduled from 7 a.m. to 7
p.m. at three locations desig-
nated by precinct:
+ Precinct 24: The public
library at mile marker 81.5
bayside.
Precinct 25: The
Plantation Key Courthouse
Courtroom B.
Precinct 26: Immanuel
Lutheran Church, 108 Ocean
Drive in Tavernier.


Issues on the ballot:
Voters will be asked to
decide whether to define the
village building code to man-
date structures in Islamorada
not exceed 35 feet.
Voters will be asked to
decide whether to change
terms for council members
from two to four years for all
five commissioners. There
would be a transition period
where the three candidates
receiving the highest number
of votes in the March 2008
election would serve four-year


terms,.but the remaining elect-
ed candidates would serve for
two years.
+ The village canvassing
board can now be composed of
the village clerk and any coun-
cil member not running for re-
election. The referendum will
ask voters to decide whether
to limit membership to the
clerk and two council mem-
bers. If no council member is
eligible, the council would
appoint the board members.
A "yes" vote on filling
council vacancies would
change the policy of filling
council vacancies to: If a
council member leaves office


with less than 50 percent of
his or her term remaining, the
council will appoint a replace-
ment to fill the rest of his
term. If the council member
leaves with 50 percent or more
of his term remaining,- a
replacement will be chosen by
the council to serve until the
next scheduled election.
The Village Council
needs a four-fifths vote to
increase compensation for its
members. The referendum
asks whether any pay increase
for council members would
also require majority approval
by Islamorada voters at the
next regular election.

FKAA is changing
disinfecting process

The Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority is temporarily chang-
ing the disinfection process for
the Keys potable water supply.
From this coming Monday to
June 11, the FKAA will disinfect
the water with chlorine rather
than chloramines (combined
chlorine/ammonia). Since chlo-
rine is a stronger disinfectant
than chloramines, the FKAA per-
forms the disinfection conversion
annually throughout the Keys
water distribution system.
The temporary disinfection
process is recommended by the
Department of Environmental
Protection for water utilities that
utilize chloramines as their pri-
mary disinfectant.
The temporary change in the
disinfectant process does not


cause adverse health effects.
However, during this conversion,
customers may experience a
slight increase in the taste and
odor of chlorine.

year, it appears nearly twice as
many businesses are delinquent
and Henriquez said her office is
getting "more aggressive" about
collections.
"We seized 1,200 bank
accounts this year of people who
owned tangible taxes from
2005," Henriquez said. "We used
to average about 300 to 600
seizures a year."
On the far larger property tax
side of the ledger, defaults have
not increased from last year.
Delinquent taxes, which are


published in a special-notice tax
sale in today's Keynoter, appear
to be running nearly even from
previous years, despite the softer
real estate market.
"We won't know the exact
number of certificates to be sold
this year until it's published for
the public," Henriquez said. "It's
around the same number as last
year, which is a relatively low
amount of delinquencies."
Of the approximately 87,000
taxable parcels in the Keys, 1,831
failed to pay real estate taxes last

Off-season tourists arriving


Area businesses
confident about
coming months
By STEVE SANOSKI
Keys Sunday reporter
ssanoski@keynoter.com

The unofficial close of the
tourist season may have passed
with an early Easter weekend this
year, but business remains brisk
for most in the Florida Keys.


"Everybody is saying April
was an excellent month, with the
exception of some businesses
affected by strong winds," said
Harold Wheeler, marketing direc-
tor of the Monroe County Tourist
Development Council.
Wheeler speculated recent
winter storms and cold spells in
northern states paired with. off-
season prices in the Keys are
chiefly responsible for reports of
increased occupancy rates and


sales throughout the island chain.
For the most part, Key West
bed and breakfasts were near full
occupancy throughout April, said
Brenda Donnelly, president of the
Key .West Innkeepers
Association.
"We had a much stronger
April than we had last year pretty
much across the board," she said,
"and so far May is looking terrif-
ic."

Hoteliers say numbers up after Spring Break ends


TOURISM / From 14

of the Hemingway House, said a
slower-than-usual Spring Break
initially left her skeptical as to
what business would amount to
as the summer months
approached.
"Maybe it was because.Easter
was early this year, but it actually
picked up after Spring Break,"
Sands said. "All in all, it's been
encouraging, and we just hope
that this is a trend-we'll see con-
tinue into a decent off-season.
We're still not back to normal."
Donnelly echoed Sands'
assessment of the spring break
impact on business in Key West.
"I've found many people
avoid coming the Keys in March
because of the students, and some
of our members said March was a
little off again this year," she said.
"It looks like those people are
waiting to come after spring
break ends."
Although the exact impact is
unknown, the continual strength-
ening of the British pound and
the European Union's euro
against the dollar is rumored to
boost international tourist num-
bers, Wheeler said.
"Right now our international
numbers are about the same as
they've been for a while now,
which is below where we'd pre-
fer to see them," Wheeler said.
"Both our German and U.K. sales
offices are saying a large
European market will be travel-
ing to the UnitSteStates this year,
but I will add we have heard that
before."
Charlie Bauer, general manag-
er of the Hog's Breath Saloon,
said he could use a boost in the
number of European travelers -
especially those from beer-loving
nations.
"We've been pretty flat like
the rest of the year has been so
far," he said unenthusiastically.
"We're actually down a little bit
from last year."
April events such as the World
Sailfish Championship and
Conch Republic 25th anniversary
did little to add business, Bauer
said. Nonetheless, he was confi-
dent about this past weekend's
Songwriters' Festival, which the
Hog's Breath organizes each
year.
"Each year we've had more
and more people come down
from the mainland and out of
state for the Songwriters'
Festival. and we've pot our


biggest lineup yet this year," he
said.
Donnelly said the city's bed
and breakfasts were booked solid


for the Songwriters' Festival
weekend, as well as Key West's
large hotels.
According to the most recent


bed tax collections, Keys hote- The county collected 1.4 percent

Celebrated chef comes home


Van Aken takes
helm-at Wreckers
on N. Roosevelt
By FRAN MARCHBANK
Keynoter contributor

"I've come home," Norman
Van Aken said last week. The
award-winning chef, author, and
founder of New World Cuisine
has moved back to Key West
after a 17-year absence in order to
open Norman's Key West, which
will join two others in Coral
Gables and Orlando as meccas
for devotees of his innovative
fusion cooking.
Presiding over a test kitchen at
Wreckers Bar & Grill, former site
of El Meson de Pepe on North
Roosevelt Boulevard in Key
West, Van Aken is putting finish-
ing touches on plans for the new
restaurant, developing menus and
hiring and training staff. When
the new restaurant opens at
Beachside Key West, the aptly
named temporary location will
succumb to the wrecker's ball to
make way for a hotel and conven-
tion center complex now on the


drawing board.
Norman's Key West has been
in the planning stages for more
than two years. Now, the drywall
is up, the walk-in coolers have
been installed, and rapid progress
is being made on all other aspects
of construction and furnishing.
Norman's Key West is on its way


to a fall opening.
New World cuisine will mix
with Old World d6cor at the 150-
seat restaurant. Dark woods and a
pressed tin ceiling will lend
warmth to the main dining area
where guests sitting at wooden
tables can order tapas or select
from an a la carte menu. Tapas
will also be available at an adja-
cent cozy cocktail bar. A more


formal atmosphere will prevail in
a 40-seat dining room sparkling
with gleaming stemware, white
tablecloths, and blond woods,
where the chef's tasting menus
will be available along with a la
carte offerings.
For more on Van Aken and to
try out a few of his recipes, pick
up Keys Sunday, or visit

As of the March 31 deadline

owed. Last year, the same per-
centage of people paid their taxes
early to receive the discount.
Those who have yet to pay
can do so until May 30, the day
prior to when tax certificates are
sold on all outstanding debts.
After taxes become delinquent, a.
3 percent penaltyis imposed in
the total tax owed.
Anyone can purchase tax cer-
tificates. Sold by auction, the bid-
ding on certificates starts at 18
percent, representing the interest
to be paid by the debtor. The tax
certificate is awarded to
whomever reduces the bid to the
lowest interest rate.
Live auctions were held for
years, but the county last year
switched to an online auction
method conducted by www.real
auction.com. Florida was one
of the first states to allow coun-
ties to hold tax certificate auc-
tions online three years ago, and
it is becoming the preferred
method of tax collectors.
Just four Florida counties used
the online auction method when
it became available in 2004. The
following year, the list grew to
16. Monroe County joined more
than half of the state in using the
online method last year.
RealAuction charges $5 per
'tax certificate sold, but
Henriquez said the county recov-
ers the fees in the form of the
additional work Tax Collector's
Office employees are able to
complete by not having to help
conduct the auction.
"We used to have to sit in on
the live auction, which required a
lot of time preparing for and
meant we couldn't get any of our
regular work done on the day of
the auction. I would say we spent
at least 200 to 250 employee
hours on it each year," she said.
"Now it's pretty much all done
without any effort on our part."
People interested in this year's


auction can get more information
'and register at www.monroe
taxsale.com. The auction will
open for bids May 9, and will
close on the afternoon of May 31.
Alongside the changes many
counties are making in conduct-
ing tax certificate auctions,
Henriquez said the typical bidder
on tax certificates is also chang-
ing.
"We used to have a lot of
locals bid on and buy tax certifi-
cates, and some still do, but not
many," said Henriquez; "Large
banks have been coming in over
the past few years and bidding
most of the certificates down to
their lowest point 0.25 per-
cent."
Despite winning a tax certifi-
cate bid at 0.25 percent, Florida
law guarantees the winning bid-
der will receive no less than a 5
percent interest rate.
Payments on the tax certifi-
cate are not made directly to the
winning bidder, and are instead
handled through the tax collec-
tor's office. The holder of a tax
certificate has no rights to the
property on which the debt is out-
standing, regardless of whether
the debt is settled or not.
If payment is not made after
two years, however, the tax cer-
tificate holder can then file a tax
deed application. The application
forces the debtor to either clear
all outstanding debts with the
certificate holder or face having
to auction off the property on
which taxes are outstanding.
If the tax certificate holder
wishes to acquire the property in
question, they have to bid on it
just as anyone else would.
Henriquez said it is rare for
Monroe County properties to be
forced into auction due to out-
standing tax debts. Last year 11
properties received tax deed
applications due to outstanding
debts from 2004.

Marathon has particular mean-

"This is where it really start-

came to Marathon from Cuba in
the sixth grade and attended
Switlik before graduating from
Marathon High School.
"My mom thought it was a
great idea for me to paint here,
and.my brother begged me to do
it," he said.
O'Farrill's 10-year-old broth-
er, Carlos, watched from the
first row of students while their
mother, a janitor at the school,

"I guess he got it from my
uncle, and my dad likes to draw,

Bellagio is next for O'Farrill


ARTIST / From 17

For the past week, Carlos and
his classmates watched O'Farrill
and an assistant work nonstop to
fill the large section of concrete
wall facing the school's sports
fields and U.S. 1.
O'Farrill returned Monday to
finish the dolphins' eyes and put
his name to the work school
officials hope will stand as a
tribute to the school (with its
mascot, a dolphin) and a testa-
ment to what Keys students can
accomplish.
"The children have truly
enjoyed watching him, and I
think they will respect the paint-
ing" and not deface it, Principal
Barbara Wright said. "We tell
the kids, 'Look at one of our stu-
dents. You can really do any-
thing you strive for."'
Savanah Rodamer, a 10-year-
old fourth-grader, said she liked
watching the painting come
together, and it definitely looks
better than the drab wall it cov-
ers.
"It used to be plain white, but
now it's so much more color-
ful," Rodamer said. "He's very
good. I like the tropical fish."
O'Farrill said he likes the
piece because of its bright and
hyper-realistic colors, which
have become a trademark for
O'Farrill and separate his work
from other notable Keys mural-
ists, such as the popular Wyland.
"It's not a competition or
anything, but my style is way
different from Wyland's," said
O'Farrill, who compared his
style and use of bright colors to
Hawaii artist Jeff Wilkey.
"I want people to know who
painted it without looking at the

signature," he added. "You don't
need to light it up at night. The
colors are bright enough."
After O'Farrill signed the
pro-bono piece, Wright said a
few words to the group and
handed O'Farrill an envelope
filled with donations from teach-
ers and others in an undisclosed
amount. O'Farrill grudgingly
accepted after much convincing.
"You just can't charge for
something like this. It's for the
kids," said O'Farrill, who has a
1-year-old daughter and is
expecting another. "Painting has
kept 'me out of trouble, and I
think this could help a lot of
kids."
Asked where he was painting
next, the soft-spoken artist
smiled and chirped, "Vegas. The

Games added to festival


Country music's
Janie Fricke
is the headliner
Two days of fun and games,
great food, arts and crafts, and
entertainment are to fill Founders
Park, mile marker 87 bayside,
during the 16th annual Florida
Keys Island Festival, Taste of
Islamorada and newly created
Islamorada Games.
The festivities are slated for
May 19 and 20.
Recording star Janie Fricke,
who has been named the Country
Music Association's female
vocalist of the year and Academy
of Country Music female vocalist
of the year, is to headline two days
of live music.
Victor Leong is to build an


enormous sand castle on the
beach, while his assistant gives
lessons to aspiring sand sculptors.
The festival features an
expanded and juried arts and
crafts area. The Islamorada
Chamber of Commerce is to intro-
duce the 3rd annual festival
poster, with copies available for
purchase for $10.
A doggie fun zone, featuring
an amusement park fit for
canines, is to operate in the dog
park.
Local chefs are to prepare their
signature dishes as they compete
for awards for best entree, dessert,
appetizer and other delights dur-
ing Sunday's "Taste of
Islamorada."
For the first time, the festival is
to be complemented by the


Islamorada Games, a unique two-
day event that features fun-filled
Olympic-style competition for
kids and families, as well as an
exhibition by current and past
Olympians including 10-time
medalist Gary Hall Jr.
The games are to be held in
parallel (Olympic style) over the
two days of Island Fest.
Competitors can sign up for soft-
ball, soccer, tennis, skateboarding,
distance and sprint runs, relays,
kayaking, beach volleyball, tug of
war and ultimate Frisbee.
The climactic "closing cere-
mony" of the games is to be the
rubber-ducky race on the beach at
Founders Park.

Couple pushes 'agro-tourism'


Homestead pair
makes wine from
tropical fruit
Associated Press

When most people plan a trip
to South Florida, they imagine
world-class beaches, internation-
al fashion designers and hot Latin
sounds.
But one Homestead couple is
using Wine made from tropical
fruit to lure visitors away from
the beach to experience other
aspects of South Florida's natural
beauty.
Instead of using grapes, Peter
and Denisse Schnebly are
embracing Florida's agricultural
strengths by making wine from
fruits such as carambola and
lychee that won't grow in cooler
climates.
"Does it really matter what
you made the wine from?" Peter
said. "Isn't it more important that
you made a good wine?"
The Schneblys started selling
their wine in 2005 to cut the
waste from their tropical fruit
orchards.


The couple farms about 100
acres in the Redland area west of
Homestead. They got the idea to
make wine a few years earlier
from one of Peter's friends, who
owned a winery in upstate New
York.
Peter said 20 to 40 percent of a
crop can't be sold because it's
either blemished or too ripe. The
Schneblys began their winery
with the fruit they would have
thrown away but eventually
expanded to buying fruit from
neighboring farms.
"We had growers that were
dumping this stuff away, and now
we're making wine out of that,"
Denisse said. "And we're paying
them for it."
The Schneblys make their
wine in a relatively small section
of their 24,000-square-foot pack-
ing facility. The stainless steel
fermenting tanks at the winery
can hold 20,000 gallons. But
because the Schneblys use differ-
ent fruits with different growing
seasons, they can produce more
than 100,000 gallons of wine
annually.
The Schneblys weren't the


first ones to start using tropical
fruit for wine.
Florida Orange Groves Inc.
and Winery in St. Petersburg has
been at it for more than a decade.
Florida Orange Groves makes
wine from mango, guava and
passion fruit, which are also on
the Schneblys' menu.


Allen Susser, head chef and
proprietor of Chef Allen's in
Miamli, agreed that the Schneblys
are making more than a novelty"
wine. Besides selling the
Schneblys' mango and passion
fruit wines at his restaurant,
Susser said he also likes to cook
with it.

Patients with Parkinson's Disease
improved with increased Vitamin
D (Movement Disorders,
January 17, 2007)
Vitamin D as important as
calcium in reducing risk of hip
fractures and osteoporosis.
So, since Vitamin D is sooo
important, where do we get it??
The best source is safe exposure
to the sun. It is the best natural
source. Other natural sources of
Vitamin D are fish and egg yolks.

Marathon turns
out big roster
for '07 football
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The football field at
Marathon High School was
filled with athletes participat-
ing in spring practice Monday,
and coach Lance Martin says
the high turnout will help in
what should be a very chal-
lenging season in 2007.
"We'll have a lot more
depth, so kids can get breaks a
lot more often," Martin said.
"Many of our backups last year
were fighting for the starting
jobs. So they. are even that
much better this year, and I'm
more confident to put them in
the game."
Martin said he will need a
strong, healthy and large squad


this fall to compete with some
very large opposing schools
like Deltona a class 6A
school out of Daytona Beach
with well over 2,500 students.
Marathon has about 400 stu-
dents, and many of the football
starters play the entire game at
several offensive and defensive
positions, although Martin said
that will be limited this season.
Last year, the Dolphins
fielded 29 players in grades
nine to through 12 during a 6-4
season that missed a district
title. This spring, 51 players
have turned out from classes
moving up to 10th, llth and
12th grades in the fall.
"On the offense and defen-
sive line, there's a lot of com-
petition," Martin said. "That's
good, because it makes for bet-
ter scrimmages and just having

administrators aim to fill four
head-coaching positions before
the next school year begins.
Head-coach spots for.
wrestling, cheerleading and
boys' and girls' swimming are
being advertised, Athletic
Director Rich Russell said.
"A couple of assistant-coach
positions for football also are
open," Russell said.
"This is not atypical," Russell


said. "We always have some
changes."
Andy Mazur, wrestling coach
for more than a quarter century,
is retiring at the end of the cur-
rent year.
Mazur also was instrumental
in starting the swimming and
diving program at Coral Shores,
and helped coach the squad that
trains.and competes at Founders
Park.
Bernice Dionne will step
away from her post as head
cheerleading coach.
For swimming, Coral Shores
expects to name both a head
girls' coach and head boys'
coach.

Anglers going (to) Coconuts


$50,000 in cash,
prizes await
the winners
Dolphin anglers can set
their sights on a guaranteed
cash payout of $30,000, along
with prizes and trophies creat-
ing a total-purse of $50,000, at
.the 21st annual Coconuts
Dolphin Tournament sched-
uled May 17 to 20 in Key
Largo.
A grand prize of $10,000
cash is to go to the angler who
brings the heaviest dolphin to
the weigh station. If that fish
exceeds 63.9 pounds, the cur-
rent state record, the angler is
to win a two-year lease on a,
2007 Honda valued at more


than $10,000, in addition to
other prizes.
The Coconuts event is one
of the largest tournaments in
South Florida, historically
attracting more than 400
anglers each year. Boats from
19 feet to 50 feet long can be
seen searching for dolphin in
the waters off Key Largo dur-
ing the tournament.
Registration is set for May
17 at Coconuts Restaurant,
near mile marker 100 ocean-
side.
A warmup tournament,
exclusive of the weekend's
two-day tournament, is set for
May 1.8. The first-place angler
is to win $2,000 cash plus a
trophy. Cash awards for sec-


ond and third place are $1,000
and $500, respectively.
May 19 and 20, anglers are
to target dolphin that could
win the $10,000 overall grand
prize.
Separate tournament divi-
sions include female, senior
(over age 60), junior (age 16
and under) and the "open"
division for every angler.
A barbecue dinner and
awards ceremony are to take
place May 20 at Coconuts
after fishing concludes. Entry
fee is $160 per angler and $50
for juniors and social-only
tickets.

tact Coconuts at 453-9794 or

Marathon is returning near-

which will be creating lanes for
backs A.J. Freeman, Chris
Flingos, J.P. McCabe and
breakout star Sergio Howard,
who last season tied the school
record for receiving yards in a
season (406) and beat the past
record of 62 points in a season
with a new record of 124
points. His 20 touchdowns
were also the most ever for
Marathon.
The Dolphins will have sev-
eral key players back from
injury this season, including
linebacker Andrew Araque and
receiver Fernando Taylor, who
was on track to break school
records before he was hurt last
year.
Tossing Taylor the ball at
quarterback is tentatively slat-
ed to be junior Kenny White,
although Martin said White's
been given some competition
by sophomore Aaron Ross,
brother of last year's record-
breaking QB Adam Ross.
"He throws much better, and
Adam is jealous, or at least he
should be," Martin said. "We'll
play them both in the spring,
and if Aaron is good enough,
we'll play him. It makes us that
much better, because then we
can move Kenny to different

positions on offense where he's
even more effective."
No matter who's running the
plays, look. for Marathon's
offense to be similar to last
year's flurry of dazzling runs
by Howard and bootleg plays
by the quarterback, who won't
be shy of tossing the ball
downfield for a game-breaking
score.
Martin won back-to-back
District 8-2B titles with
Marathon in 2003 and 2004,
and the Dolphins have a shot to
repeat that glory if they can get


past a tough non-district sched-
ule, as many district games
will be played at home.
"We have six home games
this year, and we did that on
purpose," Martin said. "We
need money to finance this
program."
Marathon travels for a pre-
season game against Pompano
Beach May 17. The Dolphins
begin the regular fall season at
Pope John Paul in Boca Raton
Aug. 24 and then host Key
West Aug. 31 before traveling
to Deltona Sept. 7.

COACHES / From 24


Nurseries You Can Trust


Founders Park aquatic com-
plex staffer Andy Diechert took
over the Hurricane swimming
program from Jon Olsen last fall.
Diechert has left the -area,
Russell said.
"The ideal situation is to find
people on [Upper Keys school]
staff with expertise," Russell
said: "But it doesn't appear the
school district is going to adding
new teaching positions."
School District employees
will receive top consideration
for any coaching vacancies.
"Having a coach on staff real-
ly helps with things like commu-
nication and scheduling,"
Russell said.
Local residents also can
apply, but the coaching spots are
strictly part-time. Pay is based
on a fixed supplemental sched-
ule.
Expected to return for the
2007-08 school year are head
football coach Todd Gideon;
girls' volleyball and boys' bas-


ketball coach Andy Thiery; cross
country and track coach Mary Jo
Fry; girls' basketball coach Dan
Smith; boys' soccer coach Jorge
Bosque; girls' soccer coach Clint


Arsenault; softball coaches Paul
Grewe and Mike Young; tennis
coach Blake Fry; lacrosse coach
Mark Hall; and baseball coach

The inaugural
Bull and Cow
a smash hit

First-year event. Eighty-five
boats. Three-hundred seventy-
one anglers. Two days of fishing.
$10,000. In Marathon.
Something just looks a little
strange there. It could be the
Marathon part.
The Middle Keys are not par-
ticularly
known for
host in g
mega-tour-
dea e n naments.
Or it. could
1, W. be 371
anglers par-

a first-year
tourna-
ment. Most
tournament
organizers
Cal Sutphin will tell you
that to get
to those numbers, you must think
decades, not months.
Or it could be the $10,000
first-place nut. Noiv, $10,000 in
this day of gaudy prize money in
fishing tournaments is not a lot of
cash when you think of tourna-
ments with this participation- But
is this a recipe for success?
Absolutely.
What started out as an idea for
a twist on a dolphin tournament
by marine artist Joe Suroviec
s alanched into \hat has been
dubbed the Marathon Offshore
Bull and Cow Tournament.
Organizers Jack Carlson and
Byron "Biff" Goss had long
thought of a dolphin tournament
in Marathon being based at their
Big Time Bait and Tackle. The
twist is making the $10,000 first-
place prize available only to the
team with the largest combined
weight of a bull and cow dolphin
overall, removing some of the
luck factor.
It wasn't until the thought of
involving Brian Hurley from
Gaff Magazine as co-sponsor did
things blow up in a good way.
"In the beginning, if we had
30 boats by tournament time, I
would have been excited, but 80
boats and 370 anglers? Not in my
wildest dream. Obviously,
Marathon was ready for this,"
according to Hurle.


Team Layin' Pipe 2 from Marathon shows its 45.6-pound bull
dolphin, part of what brought them the $10,000 first-place
check. They also landed 29-pound cow. The team is (from left)
Tudy Carlson, Austin Carlson (junior angler champion), Ben
Daughtry, Capt. Jimmy Gagliardini and Tracy Dalton.


Marathon was ready for this in
every way, in fact. Carlson was
quick to credit City Manager
Mike Puto for embracing the idea
and making this work.
Some cities seem to fight large
tournaments for some reason, but
Puto only sees this as a boost to
an ever-evolving Marathon.
"This is just awesome. I
haven't seen this type of summer-
time excitement for a tournament
since the old Dolphin Dash days
of the '70s," he says. "I'm
stretching my imagination think-
ing of a tournament that is larger
than this ever held here in
Marathon."
In many huge tournaments,
the winning boats don't necessar-
ily come from the tournament's
home port, a la the World Sailfish
Championship in Key West.
Not the case in the Bull and


Cow, where Team Layin' Pipe 2,
captained by Marathon's Jimmy
Gagliardini, sandbagged the
field, waiting until the final two
minutes to make their move.
Gagliardini's team saw only
one big fish that wouldn't eat the
first day of fishing.
In a perfect example of don't
give up until the fat lady sings, at
3:20 the final day on Sunday -
10 minutes before lines out -
Gagliardini pulls up to a floating
pallet. One large bull dolphin was
right for the taking.
With one teammate watching
the clock, Gagliardini pitches a
bait and hooks him up, just to see
the bull spit the hook on his first
jump.
Go eight minutes to 3:28: He
reloads the rod to see the bull still

Keys Fishing


Wednesday, May 9,2007


You can't eat them,


but target the tarpon


In May, there are really only
two species you hear about from
most of the anglers and captains
throughout the Keys, tarpon and
dolphin.
From my experience, I would
say that more than 90 percent of
the guides are booked for most of-
the month for one or both of these
two species. There is one very
good reason for this: It's prime
time for both of them in the Keys.
For most of the Keys' flats
guides, particularly who have.
been working here a while, a day
off in May is unheard of. They
will stalk the area flats for cruis-
ing silver kings with anglers
armed with both spin and fly
tackle seeking a battle that will
become a lifelong memory.
The same can be said for those
who work boats around the area
bridge channels in the early
mornings and late afternoons, the
two prime times for feeding
channel tarpon. The fish are here,
and now is the time.
It is a wonder to many who
have not caught or even attempt-
ed to catch a tarpon, mostly
because they cannot see any point
in targeting a fish they cannot eat,
or even keep. This is truly when
the sport of fishing comes in to
play.
It is not the meat that you get
from it, but the thrill of the battle
that is won by the fish more
often than the angler.
With the general tackle used to
fight these fish being 12 to 30-
pound test line class and the fact
that you may be fighting a fish
that weighs in excess of 120
pounds, you only have to do the
math to understand it is not going
to be a cakewalk by any means.
Pound for pound and consid-
ering the proportionate tackle
used for tarpon and marlin, I
believe the tarpon will give you a
much greater battle.
Considering that, take into
account that your odds of hook-
ing a tarpon far exceed that of a
marlin while fishing in much
more protected waters, with trav-
el time being only a small frac-
tion.
Plus, how many times do you
hear of anglers finding and hook-
ing three, four, five or even six
marlin in a day? These are some
of the main reasons why tarpon
fishing is so popular.


If you
are into
competi-
tion, you
still have
time to
enter the
oldest tar-
pon tourna-



Marathon
Dave Navarro I n t'e r -
national
Tarpon Tournament, kicking off
Thursday at 2:30 p.m. at the
World Class Angler, mile marker
50 bayside.
We fish Thursday, Friday and
Saturday evenings, all the while
partying-on either side of fishing.
There are prizes for everything
caught and a good time is always
had by all. Contact me at the store
for more information.
Aspirin and V-8 are included
with entry.
Another neat thing about tar-
pon fishing in the Keys is the fact
that you do not have to target only
them in a fishing day. There are
tons of other species, available in
the same areas, or you can easily
work the reef or offshore either
following a morning shot at the
tarpon or before you give them a
try in the evenings. They are big,
tough fish that have humbled
more than their share of cocky
anglers who thought there was
nothing to bringing in a tarpon.
For those visiting the-Keys
who do not want to mess with
them, well, you are here at the-
right time to have your way with
the big dolphin.
The early part of the season,
which is the next couple of
weeks, is renown for having
some of the largest fish available
throughout the summer. The big
numbers have not started as of
yet but, should turn on.any day.
What we are lacking now are
the good weed lines that hold the
bait fish the dolphin are looking
for. It is really quite simple -
find the prey and you will find the
predators.
Although the distances have
varied from one end of the Keys
to the other, generally 18 to 20
miles beyond the reef line will
put you into some good numbers


of fish on a fairly regular basis
now. This is where you should
find good amounts of weed lines
as well as numerous fish.
Beyond that, say, another 5 to
10 miles, will put you in the areas
where some of the really big ones
have been coming through. Work
the feeding birds as you see them
and you will do just fine.
If you happen to spot a work-
ing frigate bird, one that is actual-
ly close to the water and not
resembling a fighter plane over
Baghdad, you could be in for a
tussle with a big fish or two fair-
ly soon.
It really hasn't mattered if you
were using trolled baits or lures
when you find these fish. As most
of you know, I have used only
artificial lures the past 16 years.
This allows me to cover much
more ground while trolling at a
higher speed and to close in on
working birds when spotted, with
my entire spread out and not hav-
ing to slow to return the baits to
the water.
I can tell you that if it is mov-
ing, the odds of a dolphin hitting
it are pretty good right now.

and with the 29-pound cow in the
box already, the championship is
iced.
It should be noted that
Gagliardini hit the docks imme-
diately afterward and quickly off-
loaded the winning fish with his
crew. He then proceeded to pick
up his competitors for the
McDonalds Tarpon Tournament
hosted by the World Class
Angler.
After competing for four
hours in the tarpon tournament,
Gagliardini was then back at the
Moose Lodge collecting his
$10,000 first-place check at the
Bull and Cow awards ceremony
by 9 p.m.
Second-place finisher Capt.
Joe Petrucco on Team Killer
Instinct out of Robbie's Marina
in Islamorada had quite the oppo-
site story.
Its two big fish were caught
the first day at the same exact
time, a 41.5-pound bull and a
22.5-pound cow, which gave
Team Killei Instinct the first-day
lead. The second day just went

from having their first-day lead

Barbara Hewlett and Kimberly
Fames were the top team.
Most fish caught other than
tarpon went to Kelly Goodwin.
The traveler's trophy went
to Judy Adler of South
Burlington, Vt.


HIT THE ROAD, JACK CREVALLEE): The Heichel family
(dad Mick and sons Adam and Nick) of Michigan spent a
day fishing the patch reefs with Capt. Chris Johnson of
SeaSquared Charters out of Marathon while they were
visiting mom and grandmom Pauline Jones of Key Colony

one caught by Adam Heichel, a 15-pound Jack crevalle.

A released white marlin
earned Team Shock-N-Awe from

honors, but that wasn't the
coolest part of the day for angler
Robert Collins.
He had a large dolphin hooked
on 20-pound test when an esti-

decided to chomp the easy target.
Collins mentioned having the
