But they could

in near future
By KEVIN WADLOW


The most restrictive water
limits ever imposed on South
Florida have not extended to the
Florida Keys yet.
This week, the South Florida
Water Management District
board took "unprecedented
action" to impose Phase 3 water
restrictions on Broward and
Palm Beach counties.
"This is the first time [the dis-
trict] has ever, ever, ever put
these Phase 3 restrictions in
place," said Carol Ann Wehle,
district executive director.
Some recent rainfall over
Miami-Dade County will keep
the Miami area and Monroe
County under less restrictive
Phase 2 restrictions, pending fur-
ther developments.

media specialist Jesus Rodriguez

Burned area
still smolders
after two days
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

Fire investigators say arson
was likely the cause of a Big
Pine Key fire that forced resi-
dents in nearly three-dozen
homes and those staying at the
Big Pine Key Motel to evacu-
ate Wednesday afternoon.
The fire, which did not dam-
age any homes, was still smol-
dering into Friday, officials
said.
"We have no leads on any
individuals responsible, just
that it looks to be a possible
arson," Assistant Monroe
County Fire Marshal Wally
Romero said. "I got a couple of
different stories from different
people. Some said vagrants ...
and some said there are kids
that go back there, young
kids."
According to Monroe
County Sheriff's Office
reports, the fire started at an
abandoned truck just before 4
p.m. and then spread to a near-
by wooded lot near Watson
Boulevard, Cunningham Lane
and 24th Street, a few blocks
north of U.S. 1 near mile mark-
er 31.
Anne Morkill, manager of
the National Key Deer Refuge,
which is helping in the investi-
gation along with the state
Division of Forestry, said some
sort of incendiary fluid was
found around the burned truck.

A few children on Big Pine Key try to mask themselves from the
smoke of a brush fire that forced residents to evacuate nearby
homes and burned well into Friday. Investigators now believe


arson was likely the cause.
"I don't think anybody
knows what the fluid is. We
didn't find any cans or any-
thing," Morkill said. "It started
in an abandoned vehicle on a
private lot right next to a house
that has a family living in it.
"Though we lost habitat
resources, it threatened homes
and businesses and could've
been much more catastrophic,"
she added.
The long-running drought
made conditions right for the
fire to spread, although some
wind conditions helped keep
the blaze contained, Morkill
said.
Big Pine photographer Mike
Nice arrived at the scene just
after the fire began, and he said
the dry vegetation caught


quickly.
"I got here when the flames
were coming up above the
trees, about 20 or 25 feet," he
said. "They would spray one
area, leave and go to another
area and it would kindle back
up because it's just so dry."
Firefighters from Sugarloaf,
Big Pine and Marathon doused
nearby homes and structures
with water as smoke blanketed
the area. The plume was clear-
ly visible from the west end of
Marathon nearly 20 miles
away.
The main blaze was report-
edly extinguished Wednesday
evening, but different areas
flared up over through the
night and also Thursday night.


Referendum votes are Tuesday


VILLAGE / From 1

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 members. 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 coun-
cil member leaves office with
less than 50 percent of his or
her term remaining, the council
will appoint a replacement 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.


He wants his car back,

Couple charged


with fraud


Keynoter Staff


A Key West couple went on a
spending spree with payroll
checks from a local plumbing
company, according to the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
The problem was that they did
not work for Lower Keys
Plumbing and Drain Cleaning.
Szymon Z. Zebrowski, 21,
and Melissa L. Bums, 20, each
was booked into the Monroe
County jail on multiple fraud
charges this week. Bond on each
was placed at $75,000.
Company co-owner Vincent
Stamets told deputies that several
blank checks from the company
were stolen during a March cook-


out at his Seventh Avenue resi-
dence.
Stamets identified Zebrowski
and Bums as possible suspects.
Later, at least seven company
checks totaling more than $3,600
were cashed at liquor stores, a
grocery store and a pawn shop in
Key West.
Clerks identified Bums and
Zebrowski as the people who
cashed the checks, which they
said were payroll checks.
Zebrowski, a Polish national,
was stopped and arrested April
30. Bums was booked May 5.
Each faces multiple felony
counts of larceny and fraud.


Water rules may tighten


WATER / From 1

enough rainfall to help the
groundwater levels hold up.
Broward and Palm Beach did-
n't."
Monroe County's wellfield for
potable water is located near
Florida City in Miami-Dade.
Under Phase 3 restrictions,
most residences and businesses
can water lawns and landscaping
only once a week, in the early
morning and evening.
Continuation of drought con-
ditions could bring Phase 3 limits
to the Keys.
"That is certainly a possibility,
there's no way to sugarcoat it,"
Rodriguez said. "We have had
tremendous rainfall deficit. At
this point, even a period of
above-average rainfall would not
bring us back to where we need
to be."
Effective Wednesday,
Broward and Palm Beach water-
ing will be limited to lawn irriga-
tion either Saturday or Sunday,
depending on street address. A
few minutes of hose watering for
spots of distressed growth will be
allowed in the evening hours.
City utilities for Dania Beach,
Lake Worth, Hallandale and
Lantana have been ordered not to
draw water from coastal well-
fields most susceptible to saltwa-
ter intrusion.
Phase 2 allows watering and


car-washing twice a week, in the
4 to 8 a.m. hours. Cars can be
washed from 5 to 7 p.m. on the
allowable days, and hoses can be
used for spot watering.
"Look at your plants when
you first wake up," said Greg
Scott, an arborist with Dot Palm
Landscaping in Marathon. "If
they look wilted, they should be
watered. If they look fine, it can
wait another day."
Newly installed landscaping
(newer than 30 days) can be
watered between 2 and 7 a.m.
weekdays.
Code officers in Monroe
County and the local municipali-
ties reported earlier this week that
violations have been rare.
Businesses and commercial
car washes that have permits can
continue to operate.
Scott said Keys residents
should consider "micro-irrigation
systems" that use minimal
amounts of water to maintain
home landscaping.
"This should be a wake-up
call," Scott said. "They've
imposed water restrictions but
nobody has a no-vacancy sign at
the state border. People are still
coming to Florida, and they need
water."
Lake Okeechobee, used as a
backup water source for all South
Florida, is about feet below nor-
mal for this time of year, and is
approaching the record low level.

New health-care


provider moves in


But chief of
network calls
it duplication
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Beginning June 1, Monroe
County residents with little or no
health insurance will have a new
choice in health-care providers.
Community Health of South
Dade Inc. is expanding into
Marathon and eventually Key
West.
"We are going to begin with a
family practitioner to provide
basic service with nursing and
support staff," Chief Executive
Officer Brodes H. Hartley said.
"We also expect a part-time nurse
midwife and part-time obstetri-
cian. We intend to provide prena-
tal care. We already see Monroe
County residents up here in
Miami-Dade, so we know there's
a strong need."
In 2002, a county-appointed
task force found that half of
Monroe County residents do not
have enough health insurance
coverage to maintain basic good
health. A full half of those had no
health insurance at all.
"Anyone can use our services,
Hartley said. "We work out a
sliding-fee scale based on income
and family size."
CHI, as it calls itself, will be
located at Fishermen's Hospital,
space vacated recently by the
Rural Health Network.
For years, the Rural Health
Network has provided indigent
care and a sliding fee for low-
income families in Marathon.
Network Executive Director
Mark Szurek says that's not
going to change.
"We've made a commitment
to stay here," Szurek said.
He says he's worried that a
competing primary-care agency
could end up costing grant fund-
ing for both entities, a situation
he says would ultimately hurt the
people who need the service. The
Rural Health Network has moved
across the street from
Fisherman's.
"We consider this to be a mis-
use of taxpayers' funds," Szurek
said, "for there to be two
providers of the same services.


And it's a gross duplication of
services."
"From our perspective, that's
not an issue," Hartley said.
"We're committed to collaborate
with any providers in the county.
For example, we will refer men-
tal health to existing providers, as
that is not a service we will ini-
tially provide. Our organization
is committed to serving unin-
sured and the underserved."
Hartley said his company was
asked to look at the Keys by the
Fishermen's Hospital board.
"We observed there was no
federally qualified health center
in Monroe County," he said.
CHI expects federal funding,
though it has not been confirmed
of any federal grants, Hartley
said.
Michael Cunningham, execu-
tive director of the Area Health
Education Center, says the new
care giver is a boon to all of the
Keys.
"The quality of care our citi-
zens are about to receive is
unmatched in the county," he
said.
"I think they are going to be a
strong community partner."
"Our organization was initiat-
ed in 1971 by a group of volun-
teers concerned about the non-
availability of services for the
indigent population," Hartley
said. "From that humble begin-
ning we have grown to six health
centers in south Dade and operat-
ing from 18 schools in South
Dade."
The company's client base
numbers above 50,000 in Miami-
Dade County.
The Rural Health Network
serves between 5,000 and 7,000
people a year, according to
Szurek.

Keys Opinion


TDC's invested enough in

the 'Vandenberg' already

Among the half-baked ideas that seem to arise from the
Monroe County Commission, we want to let the air out of the
one about robbing $2 million from the Tourist Development
Council to help sink the Vandenberg.
The TDC already committed $1 million in bed tax money
toward this artificial-reef project off Key West. For the
County Commission to make a grab for another $2 million -
sticking the TDC with the bill is outrageous.
Better the county's policy makers hunker down with TDC
board members and figure out a contingency plan to offset $4-
a-gallon gas and the huge negative impact that will have on
the Keys economy.
We're nearing the Memorial Day weekend, which marks the
unofficial start of the Florida tourism cycle where Keys
hotels, innkeepers, restaurants, marinas, dive centers, attrac-
tions and everyone else relies on Floridians visiting the Keys.
They are our summer season.
With gas prices forecast to hit record levels, it's easy to pre-
dict a slowdown. And lest the county commissioners forget
the economics of this place, two out of every three jobs here
in the Keys is tied directly or indirectly to tourism. Indeed,
the entire state relies on tourism as the No. 1 economic
engine.
At their Key Largo meeting Wednesday, county commis-
sioners are expected to act on the Vandenberg funding item,
which would direct staff to apply for TDC capital funds
through the normal District Advisory Council channels.
Actually, getting input on this expenditure by those closest
to the industry in each of the five DAC areas is a good thing.
But expecting to grab all of the capital funding available for
the entire year to help pay for the Vandenberg makes no sense.
We're watching the city of Key West twist and turn on its
own promise for $1.3 million toward this project to sink the
520-foot decommissioned military vessel. Where's that fund-
ing coming from in a year when every local government is
facing cutbacks and hiring freezes and more?
Keep in mind that diving represents 5 percent of the visitors
who come to the Keys.
And taking $2 million from DAC capital funds would wipe
out any other capital requests for the rest of the county.
Clearly, this is one of those trial balloons that should be
deflated by members of the advisory councils, informed
industry experts and the general public who can see through
this money grab.

Cat-trapping program should be de-fanged


EDITOR:
Well, the cat trapping on Big Pine Key is
scheduled to begin this month. Let's take a look
at the progress made by the intrepid woodsmen
of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service in the project.
Sand patches were placed throughout the
range of the marsh rabbit to determine the places
where these apex predators lurked so that the
traps could be placed most effectively and effi-
ciently. So what did our government descendants
of Daniel Boone come up with?
For all of their stealth and cunning, they came
up with one cat footprint. That's right, one -


uno, eins, une. Tens of thousands of taxpayer dol-
lars, yours and mine, are about to be spent by a
group of people that can't even find its targets.
Or could it possibly be that the threat itself has
been tremendously overblown in an effort to jus-
tify this boondoggle?
My fear is that since they apparently can't
even find the cats they claim are doing the dam-
age, they'll make an effort to find some cats
somewhere likely your neighborhood or mine
- whether there are marsh rabbits around or not.

Both feral and domestic cats are killers


EDITOR:
We at Florida Keys Wildlife Rescue have been
asked numerous times which side we are on [con-
cering the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service plan to
trap cats in the National Key Deer Refuge].
There is no doubt that cats injure and kill
birds. It is difficult for us to save birds attacked
by cats because time is critical. The bacteria and
viruses harbored by cats in their mouths and on
their claws can kill a bird quickly, and only
immediate treatment can save it if it is does
not have other complicated injuries such as inter-
nal hemorrhaging or injury to vital organs.
Both domestic and feral cats are significant
factors in the mortality of small mammals, birds,
reptiles and amphibians. Both domestic and feral
cats are natural-born killers, killing instinctively
rather than killing for food.
Many injured or dead wildlife have been
brought to me that have been tortured by both

Key Colony looking spiffy
EDITOR:
Has anyone seen the Sadowski Causeway in
Key Colony Beach recently?
The city has completed a project that was
started more than seven years ago when Mayor
Clyde Burnett conceived the idea for under-
grounding the electric wires and cables that over-
hung our city's entrance like spider webs.
He, our city building official and the commis-
sioners all recognized the enormous benefit and
aesthetic value this project would have on our
great little city.
They engaged in hours of planning, negotia-
tions with the Florida Keys Electric Cooperative,
BellSouth and Comcast Cable, and did plain old
hard work, to bring this to fruition. All worked
tirelessly to get the job done, first to build the
new bridge (which was in imminent danger of
collapsing) and then complete the job of beauti-
fying the causeway.
If you are interested in what a city can do to
enhance the quality of life, beautify its infrastruc-
ture and just plain make things look so good,
come on over to Key Colony Beach and enjoy
our new entrance, visit our great restaurants or
just watch the sunset from Sunset Park.
Congratulations to the mayor and all whose
vision allowed this to happen.

domestic and feral cats and were not killed for
food. Some of the owners have admitted their pet
cat have brought them dead wildlife, as if it is a
trophy.
As a rescue organization whose mission is to
reduce unnecessary injuries to wildlife, we sup-
port the removal of feral cats from Big Pine and
No Name Keys because they have proliferated
and they do kill wildlife.
However, since we rescue and rehabilitate all
animal life, we cannot support the killing of feral
cats or of any other living creatures. Cats would
not be feral if it were not for irresponsible people
who chose not to spay or neuter or those who
decided that they did not want to make a lifetime
commitment to cats in their care and abandoned
them in deserted areas.
It is morally wrong for people to kill these ani-
mals to mitigate this human irresponsibility and
neglect. We strongly favor relocation of feral cats
into a shelter or sanctuary where they will receive
the care they so desperately need and deserve.
Furthermore, feral cats alone are not responsible
for the threats faced by wildlife. We have made
numerous rescues of birds injured by domestic
cats, cats well fed but allowed to roam outside
anywhere they choose.
Clearly, there's no quick fix for the problem.
It's a problem created by people, and it's going to
take a lot of time, effort and cooperation to clean
up the mess, if we ever do.

Hendrick deserved prison


EDITOR:
When the jury in the trial of the
United States of America versus
[former Monroe County Attorney]
James Hendrick found Mr.
Hendrick unanimously guilty on all
counts and Judge Shelby Highsmith
read the verdict; he stated he
agreed with the jury and applauded
its decision. Finally, the laws of our
land prevailed and justice would be
done.
Recently at Mr. Hendrick's sen-
tencing, Judge Highsmith gave him
probation. The reason given was
people came forth to speak well of


Mr. Hendrick. Who spoke for the
jury and all of the people who want
our legal system to prevail?
Judge Highsmith conducted his
court with integrity and dignity and
was especially considerate of the
jury. I was shocked and extremely
disappointed by his decision.
The future of the world depends
on our laws and whether they have
meaning. It begins right here and in
every community that is strong and
wise enough to enforce the laws
they have.

Cut the fat from local government


EDITOR:
It seem very obvious to me that
like it or not, the state is going to
reduce property taxes, as the
majority of residents favor it. This
is going to leave local govern-
ments between a financial rock
and a hard place.
The first inclination is for the
county to increase local taxes,
which puts the taxpayers back
where they started from. I don't
think the public will stand for it,
as most people are pretty near
maxed out on their ability to pay
more. .
I saw a survey on the TV news
where the majority would rather
accept a rollback on services.
In government and business,
over the good years the fat is
added on. Businesses recognize it
a lot faster than governments
because they have bottom lines -
stock holders and profits.
So what I propose may be a
unique suggestion for the county.
Back in the 1970s when the
fallout came in banking, I was a
vice president and a department
head. The board of directors of the
bank knew they needed to cut
labor costs as part of surviving the
crunch. So they notified all depart-
ment heads to cut their depart-
ment's labor force by 10 percent
or it would be done for them. This
led to what was called a "black
Friday."
When 300 people were laid off,
it was horrible for those who were
cut, but it allowed the bank to sur-
vive and prosper. I think a similar
proposal should go forward in
county government.
Many work crews could suffer
the loss of one person, or the
office staffs the loss of a file clerk
(and I am not talking about vacant
or unfilled proposed slots). And


certainly we are bloated with vehi-
cles and unnecessary time spent in
endless staff meetings to share
information that could be sent in
an e-mail.
Why is it necessary to have a
large number of staff at County
Commission meetings when they
could spend the day attending to
the duties they where hired for?
SI wonder when the last time
anyone has done a study of the
inventory of duplicated equipment
and vehicles and tools in the coun-
ty (I bet in copy machines alone, a
salary could be saved).
So the bottom line is let's make
the county government more effi-
cient and less wasteful, which may
result in a minimum reduction in
service, thereby reducing the tax-
payers' burden.

Sustainable communities?

We could be a leader


Reading coverage of the levee breaks
and flooding in Missouri this week, I was
struck by this comment from a sheriff in
Holt County, who noted the rising water
came within "a hillbilly's: whisker from
going over in several places."
Growing up across the river from the
Show-Me State, I was always encounter-
ing these regional idioms that could be
traced to insulated communities, though
most were found in the southern part of
the state.
Not quite high enough to be true moun-
tains, the hills and valleys of the
Missouri boot heel do produce white-
water rivers suitable for kayak runs and
spectacular underground springs that
boil up out of the earth in furi-
ous volume.
Some refer to this part of
Missouri as the Ozarks, and
the "hillbilly" motif can be
found in souvenir shops,
imprinted on paper napkins at
the local road-stop diners, and
immortalized in Al Capp's Lil
Abner comic strip, which por-
trayed the denizens of
Dogpatch from 1934 to 1977.
For all the attention such
flooding brings, it's hard to
fathom the death and destruc- Wayne
tion visited in this giant water- Keynoter
shed, which includes the
Missouri River (which is actu-
ally the longest river in the U.S.) and the
Mighty Mississippi (which begins at
Lake Itasca in northern Minnesota and
empties into the Gulf of Mexico below
New Orleans).
Having lived in this part of the country
for nearly 20 years, I can attest to the
power of floods in land where clay soils
create instant sluice gates for water that
washes out anything in its path.
The big Mississippi flood of August
1993 wiped out several river towns and
destroyed tens of thousands of acres of
crops that were grown in the rich, allu-
vial soils found throughout the region.
It was and remains the costliest flood
in U.S. history.
And, you might be surprised to learn
the success story that grew out of that
disaster courtesy of the Federal
Emergency Management Agency.
The story of Valmeyer, Ill., became a
poster child for how federal disaster
response can work.
Valmeyer, population 900, was 30
miles southeast of St. Louis in the valley
created on the original Mississippi flood
plain, reclaimed from seasonal flooding
by dams and levies. An old German set-
tlement that traced its history back 150
years, Valmeyer was totally covered by


mud and water when the levies failed.
Even two months after the flood, water
still coursed down main street and 90
percent of the structures were so dam-
aged they had to be demolished.
FEMA set up emergency trailers, simi-
lar to those trucked here to the Keys after
Hurricane Wilma, although these were
concentrated outside Valmeyer in what
became known as FEMAVille.
The county's (it's Monroe County, 1.,
by the way for another coincidence)
regional planning committee, working
with FEMA and the Working Group on
Sustainable Redevelopment, obtained
grant funding from the U.S. Department
of Energy to start over with a blank slate.
Abandoning the flood plain
for a 500-acre farm tract on
the adjacent bluff took a lot
of courage for families that
could trace four and five gen-
erations living in the same
place.
But two years later,
Valmeyer began to re-emerge
with an entirely new town
that took advantage of the lat-
est in energy-saving design,
reuse and renewable energy
sources.
larkham More than half the homes
Publisher built in the new village boast
passive solar with super-insu-
lation that has reduced winter
heating bills as well as summer cooling
costs.
A 5-million-square-foot abandoned
limestone quarry is the subject of a sus-
tainable energy demonstration where the
constant temperature of 56 to 58 degrees
may be tapped to help cool (and heat)
homes and commercial buildings.
A wind energy project is also in the
works.
So out of disaster, Valmeyer now
serves as a poster child for the Smart
Communities Network showcased by the
National Center for Appropriate
Technology (NCAT).
Communities across the nation -
from Seattle, Washington, and Portland,
SOre., to Austin, Texas, and Boulder, Col.,
Valmeyer, Il., and Chattanooga have
implemented programs in sustainable
development, according to NCAT,
addressing problems of public trans-
portation, recycling, energy conserva-
tion, natural hazard mitigation, and other
matters.
At some point here in the Keys, we
may begin to look at our planning issues
through this longer lens, especially as it
impacts our sustainable future.
Let's just hope it won't take a disaster
to start us down that path.

Court denies Tanzi appeal


Convicted Keys
murderer takes
back guilty plea
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Florida Supreme Court on
Thursday denied former Keys
resident Michael Tanzi an appeal
of his conviction and death sen-
tence for the murder of Miami
Herald supervisor Janet Acosta
April 25, 2000.
According to Catherine Vogel,
chief assistant at the Monroe
County State Attorney's Office,
this is likely to be the first of sev-
eral appeals made by Tanzi, who
was convicted and sentenced to
death by Monroe County Circuit
Court Judge Richard Payne on
Jan. 31, 2004.
Tanzi pleaded guilty to first-
degree murder, carjacking, kid-
napping and robbery but refused
to admit to a charge of sexual bat-
tery. Vogel said shortly after the
conviction, Tanzi filed a motion
to withdraw his guilty plea.


"He alleged his lawyers
coerced him into pleading
guilty," Vogel said. "This is just
the beginning of the odyssey of
appeals."
According to the decision by
the Supreme Court, Tanzi's plea
was "knowing and voluntary."
"During the plea colloquy,
Tanzi expressed an understanding
of the consequences of his plea,
including an understanding he
could still face the death penalty,"
the court document continues.
"Tanzi also stated that he was not
coerced or promised anything in
return."
Tanzi, 29, who grew up in
Brockton, Mass., and lived in
Taunton, Mass., had been living
in Key West for a few months
prior to the killing.
In his confession, Tanzi said
he forced Acosta, in charge of
paper makeup for the Herald,
into her van during her lunch
break, drove her to the Keys and
used her ATM card to withdraw
money. He then killed Acosta and
dumped her body on Blimp Road


on Cudjoe Key.
He was caught two days later
in Key West.
Tanzi reportedly said he tied
up Acosta, covered her face with
a towel and put her in the back of
her van while he made ATM
withdrawals. He said he then
strangled her with a rope after
turning up the van's radio so no
one would hear.
He joined two other Keys
inmates on Florida's death row:
Thomas Overton, under two
death sentences for the Aug. 22,
1991, murders of Missy and
Michael Maclvor of Tavernier.
He was sentenced May 18, 1999,
and put on death row July 13,
1999.
He also received two life sen-
tences for burglary, assault and
sexual battery with a deadly
weapon; and 15 years for the
death of the MacIvors' unborn
child.
Lloyd Allen, placed on
death row March 4, 1993, for
first-degree murder. He also got
five years for grand theft auto.
Details of his case were not
immediately available.


Cay Clubs carrying large debt

the island chain, making it one of
the biggest resort owners in the
Keys.
Now it hopes to be acquired
by a publicly traded holding
company that raised $47 million
in an initial stock offering in
November 2005.
Key Hospitality Acquisition
Corp. has urged shareholders to
approve the stock-only acquisi-
tion by citing Cay Clubs' strong
profits and growth potential.
Rego said the cutbacks were
done partly with an eye to the


merger, to bring Cay Clubs' effi-
ciency in line with publicly trad-
ed companies.
Cay Clubs only formed in the
middle of 2004.
It rose on a booming real
estate market to become one of
the top land holders in the Keys,
acquiring 14 hotels and marinas
in roughly two years, with more
than 2,800 units and 900 boat
slips. Along with athletic camps
it runs across Florida and other
properties in Las Vegas and
Colorado, Cay Clubs listed $108
million worth of real estate hold-
ings, according to regulatory fil-
ings.

That portfolio also brought
substantial debt.
The company owed $87 mil-
lion as of Dec. 31, and is sched-
uled to make $74 million in prin-
cipal payments this year alone.
And while it posted $47 mil-
lion in profits last year, all of
that was from real estate opera-
tions; hotel operations posted a
small loss in 2006, according to
the Securities and Exchange
Commission filings.
It will be hard to repeat that
sales performance this year as
developers throughout the Keys
are rethinking plans to convert
resorts into condominium proj-
ects.
After paying $98 million for
Islamorada's Holiday Isle in
February, new owner Ceebraid-
Signal four weeks ago suspend-
ed plans to sell luxury condo-
miniums there. Similar projects
are on hold throughout the Keys,
tourism officials said.
Despite its large portfolio
from Key Largo to Key West,
Cay, Clubs has not begun any
significant renovation of the
properties. And the waiting con-

Cay Clubs sole bidder


Commission to
talk airport
on Wednesday
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Cay Clubs Resorts and
Marinas, under the guise of
Cristal Clear Airport Services,
hopes to offer everything from
Krispy Kreme doughnuts to the
Miami Herald and free wireless
service at Florida Keys
Marathon Airport.
When the County Com-
mission meets Wednesday at the
Key Largo library, it's set to
approve the sole bid for services
at the airport.
Under the proposal, Cay
Clubs would pay 20 percent of
the gross taxable sales for two
spaces at the newly remodeled
airport terminal. Cay Clubs
would also pay $346 monthly
for utilities.
According. to company


Regional Food and Beverage
Director Mark Charles, the con-
cession would include snacks,
over-the-counter medicines and
other items normally found in an
airport concession center.
"For travelers' convenience,"
he wrote in the proposal, "Cay
Clubs is willing to provide and
maintain free wireless Internet,,
two flat-screen televisions at
either end of the departure
lounge ... along with an ATM
machine in the main concession
area."
The company also intends to
provide a gift area with novelty
items and souvenirs.
According to Monroe County
Airports Director Peter Horton,
Dunkin Donuts had shown some
interest in bidding on one of the
spaces. The county sent the firm
a letter of notification when the
bid requests went out. However,
Cay Clubs was the only bidder.
Cay Clubs already has con-
tracts at the Marathon airport to


operate the Delta ticketing desk
- Delta has one flight in and
one out each day and provide
services for fuel, maintenance
and other private jet services.
While the proposal suggests
Cay Clubs wants to offer "per-
manent concessionaire servic-
es," the proposal does not lay out
any clear time frame for the
agreement.
The company, as part of a
planned merger with Key
Hospitality Acquisition Corp.,
this week laid off some 80 Keys
workers in an effort to stream-
line its operation.
Cay Clubs owns a number of
resorts, marinas, restaurants and
retail outlets in the Keys and,
even after the layoffs, employs
hundreds.
Cay Clubs Vice President of
Operations Frank Rego did not
return calls for comment Friday.
Cay Clubs operates a number
of Florida corporations under the
Cristal Clear name.. Dave Clark
is the chief executive officer of
all of them.


Lucky's gets rezoning approval


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The owners of a former
mobile-home park on Little
Torch Key got the go-ahead
Wednesday on a zoning change
that will allow the park to be
redeveloped into a higher-density
multiple-unit residential com-
plex.
In a 4-1 vote, the Monroe
Planning Commission approved
changing the mobile-home zon-
ing of the 2.5-acre Lucky's
Landing. The zoning change
must now be approved by the
County Commission.
Planning Commissioner
Sherry Popham dissented.


Residents df the trailer park
were told just before Christmas
that landowner Jack Warner
wants to redevelop the land. They
were given until July 15 to vacate
their rented lots.
Though fewer than 20 resi-
dents remain in the park, the evic-
tion and rezoning has drawn a lot
of criticism from Lower Keys
residents.
Many are worried about the
Keyswide trend to redevelop
mobile-home parks that for many
provide some of the most afford-
able housing in the county.
The new zoning, urban resi-
dential, would allow more units


on the waterfront parcel, and a
number of objectors were con-
cerned it would pave the way for
a monster structure.
Not the case, said Wamer's
developer, Mike Cunningham.
"Attached multi-family units
have the same restrictions as sin-
gle homes but take up less space
and provide more comfortable
living," he told the Planning
Commission.
Attorney Robert Cintron, who
has a longhistory of fighting for
the rights of mobile-home resi-
dents in the Keys, has sued for
Lucky's Landing residents and
their homeowners association.
The, suit asks for compensation,
to be determined by a jury trial.

Another consultant hired to study sewers


By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

After spending $25,000 to
compare shipping Islamorada's
sewage up to Key Largo's treat-
ment facility versus treating it
locally, consultants and village
utility staff determined another
$24,000 needs to be spent to hire
another consultant to see how
much money each choice would
cost.
A reluctant Village Council
voted 3-2 Thursday night to hire
Tallahassee-based Government
Services Group Inc. to see how
much each of the three proposals
on the table will cost per waste-
water output for every house-
hold. These measurements are
known as equivalent dwelling
units, or EDUs.
"The bleeding stops here, but
I'm going to vote yes," Mayor
Dave Boemer said.
The village already paid
Orlando consulting firm E


Sciences $25,000 in November
2006 to study the technical costs
of either building treatment
plants within Islamorada, treating
some wastewater locally and
shipping the rest to Key Largo's
$27 million plant at mile market
100.5, or shipping all of it to Key
Largo.
But Islamorada's director of
public works and utilities, Miles
Milander, told the council that to
make a recommendation on a
specific proposal, he wants to
know how much each one will
cost per EDU.
He said neither his staff nor E
Sciences has the technical capa-
bility to make that determination.
Vice Mayor Cathi Hill, an
opponent of sharing the system
with Key Largo, said problems
with the existing.sewer system at
Plantation Key Colony, which
has been plagued with problems
from the onset, should be fixed


County seeks state

cash for hammock


before considering an agreement
with Key Largo.
"In my opinion, these soft
costs are killing us. We haven't
solved all the problems with
Phase 1," Hill, who voted against
hiring Tharpe, said.
Key Largo's independent
wastewater taxing district, which
is eager for Islamorada to make a
decision so it can move forward
with its treatment plant, wants
Islamorada's sewage to ensure
there is enough flow to make Key
Largo's system function properly.
Milander said he will have a
recommendation for the council
by June 28.

Deed restrictions
Relief was short lived for
Islamorada residents who
thought an ordinance would
allow them to sell their deed
restricted affordable houses at
market rate prices.
The ordinance that passed the
Village Council 3-2 on first read-
ing April 28, which would allow
residents who bought homes with
20-year deed restrictions before
Jan. 1, 2007, to now sell them for
prices above the stated cap, faced


stiff criticism at Thursday's meet-
ing from some council members
who initially approved it.
"It's the lesser of two evils,
but I just can't bring myself to
renegotiate [the deed restric-
tions]," said Councilman
Michael Reckwerdt.
The proposal was part of an
amendment Councilman Chris
Sante added to an ordinance that
created new 30-year deed restric-
tions and new caps on sales
prices for affordable houses in
Islamorada.
Sante said on April 28 that
people living in deed-restricted
houses for four years should be


able to make money if they
decide to sell their homes.
But Boerner said doing so
would take an affordable home
off the market and replace it with
another half-million-dollar home.
Sante and Deb Gillis, chair-
woman of Islamorada's
Workforce/Affordable Housing
Citizen's Advisory Committee,
will rewrite the ordinance to pro-
vide some relief for deed-restrict-
ed homeowners, but not to the
extent to where they will no
longer be beholden to the deed
restriction.
The new ordinance is expect-
ed to be introduced May 24.

Monroe County will seek a
grant from the Florida
Communities Trust program to
fund the purchase of a three-acre
Key Largo tract.
The heavily wooded site
known as the Ettinger Property
runs from the northbound lanes
of U.S. 1 to the Atlantic water-
front near mile marker 98.
Bordered on the east by the
Bluefin Rock Harbor Marina and
across the highway from
Ballyhoo's Restaurant, the site
features a number of native trees
and plants. Cap rock poking
through the thin soil shows the
fossilized coral of the Keys.
"It's very good hammock
property," said Mark Rosch,
executive director of the Monroe
County Land Authority.
A county agency, the Land
Authority purchased the site for
$500,000 in 2005.
"We own it but this is a chance
to be reimbursed for the purchase
price," Rosch said. "That gives us
a chance to do more to preserve
local land."




The property.did not qualify
for state programs that bought
hammock property on North Key
Largo, but may qualify for pur-
chase under the Florida
Communities Trust program,
Rosch said.
This year, the state
Department of -Community
Affairs received a record 118
grant requests to "help local com-
munities preserve open space and
recreational areas."
Statewide requests total $272
million, also a record. The FCT
program, part of the Florida
Forever preservation effort, will
award its annual allocation of $66
million.
Monroe County's request to
reimburse the Key Largo pur-
chase was the only request made
from the Keys this year.
Most sites purchased through
Florida. Forever programs
become state property, but FCT
grants allow local communities
to maintain ownership.
The Florida Communities
Trust governing board decides at
a September meeting which pur-
chases to fund.

But it seems
the commission
won't pass it
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

It's unlikely there are enough
votes to initiate it, but the Monroe
County Commission will consid-
er a moratorium on redevelop-
ment of mobile-home parks in the
Keys Wednesday.
The commission meets in reg-
ular session beginning at 9 a.m. at
the Key Largo library.
Affordable-housing advocates
have been pushing since early
April for the county to impose a
six-month freeze while a mobile-
home protection ordinance works
its way through the county
approval process.
"It's become readily apparent
to me that the dye has been cast,"
attorney Robert Cintron, who
represents numerous park resi-
dents, told the commission dur-
ing its May 2 workshop. "We do
not have the votes. It's that sim-
ple. If you did a poll of what the


people in this community want,
they'd be in favor of a moratori-
um."
On a memo to the commis-
sion, County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton said "no specific direction
was given to staff to start process-
ing a moratorium."
During workshop discussions,
some of the commissioners did
not seem to be leaning toward
implementing what would be the
county's second such freeze.
The first moratorium on rede-
velopment of mobile-home parks
ended last May, after one year.
While it was in effect, county
staff drafted an ordinance that
requires developers to earmark
30 percent of redevelopment
projects for affordable housing.
The commission approved that
law.
Also on tap for Wednesday:
Two appointments to the
county's Marine and Port
Advisory Committee. Com-
missioner Dixie Spehar proposes
adding Marathon developer and
businessman Amadeo D'Ascanio.
Commission Sylvia Murphy
wants to name sitting committee
Chairman Ben lanotta, whose
term expired in April, for another
term.

State lobster panel
is in Keys this week

A panel leading a revision of
Florida's lobster laws meets
Tuesday and Wednesday on
Duck Key.
The Spiny Lobster Advisory
Board to the state Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission con-
venes at 9 a.m. Tuesday at Hawk's
Cay Resort for a daylong session.
A half-day session Wednesday
begins at 8:30 a.m.
All meetings of the 13-mem-
ber panel are open to the public.
Lobster advisors are preparing
a suggested list of rules for pres-
entation to the Conservation

will remain largely the same
under the recommendations,
board members said.
The advisors are urging the
state to find a way to limit sport-

bag limit.


Keys contractor
arrested for fraud

Monroe County Sheriff's
Office detectives have arrested a
Big Pine Key contractor on sev-
eral fraud counts.
Agency officials said four
Keys residents, three from the
Key Largo area and one from
Marathon told detectives that
Steven Staley cashed their
deposit checks but failed to
obtain permits or start the work.
Staley, 40, of Big Pine Key,
owns Southern Exteriors.
Detectives say he signed writ-
ten contracts with the victims for
jobs involving shutters, repairs,
roofing and siding work.
They said Staley deposited
more than $30,000 from the vic-
tims as down payments between
last August and December.
Detectives arrested Staley
Thursday on multiple counts of
fraud of larceny.


Approval of a contract to
finish the facade of the Freeman
Justice Center in Key West.
Completion of the building has
been delayed because of contract
disputes the past several months.
County engineering expects to
have a proposed contract by
Wednesday.
County Administrator
wants to appoint two department
heads: Acting Growth Manage-
ment Director Andrew Trivette is
recommended to take the position
permanently and Susie
Martenson is being appointed
medical services chief for the
TraumaStar medical helicopter
transport program.
Approval of a contract with
former Key West City Attorney
Bob Tischenkel to help the coun-
ty review its municipal codes, a
procedure he became familiar
with in Key West. Hutton says
her office is spread too thin to do
it in-house.
+ A resolution that would
continue to reserve 217 afford-
able-housing permits for specific
projects. The permits were
reserved for a year beginning
July, but some projects are not yet
complete. Sixty-nine of the per-
mits will be used by the county
for four projects that are current-
ly being bid.

As expected, Key West
Mayor Morgan McPherson has
filed paperwork to put his name
on the October ballot in hopes
of another two-year term as
mayor.
"I think it's important that
we keep our city moving for-
ward," McPherson said.
"We've had a lot obstacles to
overcome"
He added, "A year in office
isn't enough. I need some more
time."
No other candidates besides
McPherson had filed for the
mayoral seat, the City Clerk's
Office said Friday.
Candidate qualifying is noon
Aug. 13 to noon Aug. 17. The
election is Oct. 2.
Others who've officially
declared their candidacies for
the commission thus far:
Barry Gibson, owner of
Shades of Key West, and attor-
ney Richard Klitenick for City
Commissioner Harry Bethel's
seat in District 4, which
includes the North and South
Roosevelt, and midtown area.
+ Commissioner Mark
Rossi will fight for his own seat
against a new opponent, recent-
ly resigned Hometown PAC
Chairman Todd German. Both
are running for the District 2
seat.
Retiree Tom Milone,
Realtor Charles Lee, Bethel and
incumbents Charlie Bradford
and Mona Clark are running for
seats on the Utility Board,
which oversees Keys Energy
Services.
McPherson said that if re-
elected, he would continue to
work to instill ethics and
integrity in local government.
The first thing he did when was
elected this term, he said, was
establish the city's Ethics
Commission.

speed-limit change


Current limits
unenforceable,
Peryam says
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

Some streets in Marathon
may have posted speed limits
of 15, 20 or 25 mph, but it
seems those are merely sug-
gestions, Monroe County
Sheriff's Office Capt. Bob
Peryam told the City Council
Tuesday.
"You can post any sign, but
they have to come before the
City Council" to be approved,
Peryam said. "It would not be
enforceable."
Peryam said state statutes
make the speed limits on all
city streets 30 mph, regardless
of what is posted.
In response, the council
passed an ordinance that
would make the speed limit on
city streets 25 mph unless a
different speed is currently
posted.
The ordinance was first

Guard offloads 4,620
pounds of coke in Keys

Crew of the U.S. Coast
Guard cutter Tahoma turned
over 4,620 pounds of cocaine
to federal agents in Key West
Tuesday, following an at-sea
interdiction with the help of
the Jacksonville-based Coast
Guard Helicopter Interdiction
Tactical Squadron 144 miles
northeast of Honduras April
25, the Guard said Thursday.
The air crew located the
vessel and once on scene, a
Tahoma law-enforcement
team conducted an extensive
search of the fishing vessel.
The crew located two hidden
compartments filled with 95
bales of cocaine worth an esti-
mated street value of $61.5

The eight suspected smug-
glers have been transferred to

passed in a 3-2 vote and then
failed on second reading in a
2-2 vote two weeks ago with
Mayor Chris Bull absent. Bull
brought back the ordinance
Tuesday to give it another
shot.
"I would be a disservice for
this to go by wayside," Bull
told the Keynoter before
Tuesday's meeting. "Some of
the fears were that this is try-
ing to lower the speed limit in
places or raise the speed limit
in other places, and that's sim-
ply not true."
They voted passed 3-1 with
Councilman Pete Worthington
absent and Councilman Mike
Cinque dissenting, saying
even if the current speeds are
unenforceable, the ordinance
gives the perception people
can now drive 25 mph down
narrow, substandard streets.
"Technically, what we are
talking about is increasing
speed on some residential
neighborhoods," Cinque said.
Public Works Manager
Walter McDowell said the city
should see some cost savings
due to less maintenance when
unnecessary speed limit signs
are removed.
McDowell said the next
step would be for the city to
institute studies of driver
behavior to determine if any
changes need to be made in
the speed limits of individual
streets.
Currently, high-use roads
like Coco Plum Drive,
Aviation Boulevard and
Sombrero Beach Road have
posted limits of 30 mph.
"The study is going to be
free. The Sheriff's [Office]
said they would set up their
radar boxes to monitor the
speeds," McDowell told the
Keynoter.
"I imagine the majority of
the streets on the ocean side
that end at ocean, they should
probably be 15 or 20" mph,
McDowell added. "The roads
by the airport and through
Sombrero, they will probably
go to 25. Roads like Aviation
and Sombrero Beach, they
may go to 35."

Impact fees,
sewer project
to get hashed out
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
met in regular session Tuesday
and took the following actions:
Scheduled a meeting to dis-
cuss proposed impact fees to
fund affordable housing for 5:30
p.m. Wednesday at the Monroe
County Sheriff's office hangar at
Florida Keys Marathon Airport.
City Planning Director Fred
Gross had proposed impact fees
ranging from $1 per square foot
of new residential development
up to $50,000 per 1,000 square
feet of new tourist-based com-
mercial development.
When added to current fees
for roads, parks and recreation,
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.
The council first voted to
table the ordinance and instead
investigate the status of units and
cash promised under approved
development agreements.
A report from Gross stated
those developments should be
providing as many as 91 units of
affordable housing or $12.35
million, or some combination of
units and cash.
However, only a few units
and a 2,810-square-foot dormito-
ry have been built at the Singh
Co.'s Tranquility Bay resort.
Scheduled a meeting to dis-
cuss the progress and future of
the city sewer project for 9 a.m.
May 31 at the hangar.
City Finance Director Peter
Rosasco said the meeting will
focus mostly on funding, and
decisions made would likely
affect a later meeting June 5
when the council will discuss
setting costs for equivalent
dwelling unit and usage rates.
"I feel it's incumbent on my
department ... that we present the
council in its entirety a package
of information, in logical sequen-
tial order," Rosasco said. "These
decisions are going to affect the


future of our city in a major sort
of way."
The city has advertised bids
for service areas four
(Sombrero/Crane Point/U.S. 1
corridor) and six (Coco
Plum/U.S. 1 corridor).
Some council members have
suggested holding off construc-
tion of future service areas until
more state and federal funding
sources are obtained.
Approved a resolution
extending the time the Planning
Department will defer accepting
and processing applications for
building permits under the cur-
rent rate-of-growth ordinance
system until the city's new land
development regulations are
approved by the state
Department of Community
Affairs.
Gross said DCA has several
"minor issues" with the city's
LDRs and zoning maps that have
to be corrected before they are
approved and a new building
permit 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
applicants with the highest point
totals would receive the city's 24
yearly market-rate permits.
The resolution extends the
deferment until July, when Gross
expects the LDRs to have DCA
approval.
+ Approved an ordinance
requiring residents to follow
water-use restrictions adopted by
the South Florida Water
Management District during
times of shortage or emergency.
The ordinance also creates the
ability for the city to enforce the
requirements.
Approved 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.
+ Was told by City Manager
Mike Puto that the city received
$127,000 in grants to repair a
marina pump-out vessel and to
buy a new vessel.
Puto also said owners of the
abandoned Quay restaurant
should begin demolishing the
structure within 30 days.

Blimp to patrol


Keys waters?


Navy looking
at possibility,
officials say
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Blimp pilots, along with rep-
resentatives from the U.S. Naval
Air Systems Command and U.S.
Coast Guard Maritime Domain
Awareness, came down to South
Florida last week to discuss the
feasibility of placing a 178-foot
zeppelin in the Keys that could
improve homeland security along
the islands' borders.
"I can assure you that the
Coast Guard is exploring numer-
ous options to better secure our
maritime border," said Jeff
Carter, spokesman for Coast
Guard headquarters in
Washington, D.C.
In the wake of the Sept. 11,
2001, terrorist attacks, the Coast
Guard began to develop
Maritime Domain Awareness,
which is "the effective under-
standing of anything associated
with the global maritime environ-
ment that could impact the secu-
rity, safety, economy or environ-
ment of the United States," as it
was described by Program
Integration Office Director
Jeffrey High before the U.S.
House in 2004.
Carter, along with other Navy
and Coast Guard personnel inter-
viewed by the Keynoter,
described the situation as "very
tentative," "pre-decisional" and
as a "pending acquisition."
"There is a team from naval
air stations looking for possible
sites," Naval Air Station Key
West spokesman Jim Brooks
said. "Key West NAS is one of
the places they looked."
The A-170 blimp, now at the
Naval Air Engineering Station in
Lake Hurst, N.J., holds 170,000
cubic feet of helium in its body
and can reach a cruising altitude
of 10,000 feet for up to 24 hours,
Lake Hurst NAES spokesman
Thomas Worsdale said.
He said Lake Hurst has had
the blimp for about a year, and
uses it for research, platform test-
ing and flight training.
"It's less expensive than test-
flying airplanes," Worsdale said,


explaining that a blimp offers
hovering ability other aircraft
cannot. "It's a whole different
creature to fly an airship than it as
an aircraft or helicopter."
According to Worsdale,
before Lake Hurst claimed the A-
170, the last time they had a
blimp was 1962.
Airships like the A-170 can be
used for many different reasons,
he said, but they are usually kept
stationary.
The airship is a product of the
American Blimp Corp., Worsdale
said.
On Nov. 30, 2006, structural
flaws in Coast Guard security
vessels such as engine problems
and hull cracks were found in
eight Key West-based cutters
used for homeland security, drug
and migrant interdictions, and
general law enforcement.
Adm. Thad W. Allen, top
commander for the Coast Guard,
traveled to Key West and
declared the eight unfit for water,
leaving only two cutters to patrol
the area.
The eight cutters were a piece
of the Coast Guard's $24 billion
modernization plan called
Deepwater, intended to renovate
and improve the wear and tear of
older aircraft and fleet.
The blimp, if chosen for the
Keys location, could fill the hole
in security for the islands.
"We're always exploring dif-
ferent options to better secure our
borders," said Chris O'Neil,
spokesman for the Coast Guard's
District 7, which includes the
Keys.
O'Neil said he does not think
the project sprung directly from
the structural flaws in the 123-
foot cutters, but rather a holistic
effort to tighten security around
maritime borders. The Coast
Guard is, however, looking at dif-
ferent strategies to mitigate that
gap, he said.
But the blimp could easily act
as one of the gap-stop-measures
to tighten security, according to
other spokesmen, though funding
is a concern.
But funding is not the only
concern for getting the project up
in the air literally.
"They have other places to
look," Brooks said.

Longtime coach dies


By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com


Former Marathon High School
sports coach and teacher Ralph
Gentry died at his son's home in
Tennessee Sunday at age 73.
Gentry was most known for
his work on the football field of
Marathon High, where he
coached the Dolphins in some
capacity for many years.
However, friends Bill
Sympson and Jim Keeney
remember Gentry also as a dedi-
cated business teacher and mem-
ber of the community who
shaped the lives of many of
Marathon's youth.
"A lot of kids in town, who are
men now, he coached and helped
out a lot," said Sympson,
Marathon's outgoing athletic
director who coached with
Gentry through the 1980s and
early 1990s.
"He was definitely a player's
coach," Sympson added. "He
brought in a brand of football
from Virginia that we used very
effectively for many years."


Gentry was
originally
f r o m
Williamsburg,
Va., and grad-
uated from the
College of
William and
Mary in 1958
GENTRY before finding
his way to
Marathon around 1984, Sympson
said.
"He loved the water and boats,
like classic wood boats, and fol-
lowed that down here," Sympson
said. "I think he even lived on a
boat for while when he was here."
Gentry started as coach of the
junior varsity football team and
then became assistant varsity
coach under Sympson and head
coach for one season.
Gentry brought with him a
power-slot offense that gave
Marathon four years with only
six total losses along with a dis-
trict championship in 1987.
"He was a tremendous coach


and he had an excellent knowl-
edge of game," said Keeney, cur-
rent dean of students at
Marathon. "Him and Bill won a
lot of games together."
Gentry was also baseball
coach for two seasons and was
even athletic director for a year,
Sympson said, and he performed
every task with a smile.
"He was just a southern gen-
tleman," Sympson said.
His biggest fan may have been
his son, Lt. Robert "Fitz" Gentry,
a 1989 graduate of Marathon
High School and 1994 graduate
of the U.S. Naval Academy at
Annapolis, Md.
He flew jets during peace-
keeping missions over the
Arabian Gulf following the first
Gulf War.
Gentry became ill and
returned to Williamsburg two
years ago, Sympson said. Gentry
spent the last two months in
Tennessee before he died.
His ashes will be taken back to
Williamsburg for a service held at
11 a.m. May 17 at Burton Parrish
Church.


Island annexation returns


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


The second reading of an ordi-
nance to annex Wisteria Island,
known locally as Christmas Tree
island, is likely to stir up more
public comment and discord
among Key West city commis-
sioners when they meet Tuesday.
"I think it's the worst thing
that could happen to Key West,"
Commissioner Mark Rossi said.
"I was very much against it [the
last meeting], and I am against it
now."
The 21-acre island is about
2,200 feet northwest of Duval
Street. The Bernstein family
owns the parcel, which is lies in
unincorporated Monroe County.
The city received a recom-
mendation from the Planning
Department to support the annex-
ation for the potential property
tax revenue the city could gain
from a development project being
spearheaded by Ocean Properties
of Delray Beach.
All commissioners agreed
with the recommendation with
the exception of Rossi and
Commission Bill Verge.
"It is our objective to do a


first-class project," Roger
Bernstein said.
Last commission meeting
generated passionate speeches
from community members
including George Halloran and
Albert Sullivan, members of the
environmental group Last Stand.
They suggest delaying the
annexation to get a more repre-
sentative idea of what the public
wants, according to Sullivan. He
said the island could be used for
much better purposes, like a nat-
ural park.
"The City Commission was
not following the wishes of citi-
zens of Monroe County,"
Sullivan said.
"This is a long process,"
Bemstein said. "We feel very
close to Key West."
Bemstein noted the advan-
tages of being a local developer,
and more in tune with the needs
of the community.
He said his FEB Corp., which
would work with Ocean
Properties, spearheaded the 40-
unit affordable-housing project
on Stock Island called Park
Village.


Ocean Properties owns the
Westin Key West Resort and
Marina, Sunset Key Guest
Lodges, Sheraton Suites,
Travelodge, The Weather Station,
Banana Bay Resort, and other
resorts.
Christmas Tree Island has the
capacity to hold 168 dwelling
units, according to the city's
annexation report from Planning
Director Gail Kenson.
"Leave the island alone,"
Rossi said.

Victim leads cops to suspect


He calls police
after calling
alleged thief
Keynoter Staff

A Lower Keys resident spoke
to the man accused of stealing
his credit-card information, and
helped lead authorities to the
suspect in Texas.
John H. Howard, 34, of Fort
Lauderdale was arrested May 5
in Houston when he tried to
check into three non-smoking
hotel rooms reserved with the


victim's credit card, according to
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office.
A fake credit card bearing the
Lower Keys resident's card
number was found in his posses-
sion. "Howard also had a crimi-
nal history of identity theft and
fraudulent use of credit cards,"
agency spokesman Greg Artman
said.
The victim discovered 22
unauthorized charges totaling
more than $4,900 had been made
to the card in April. The victim,
not identified by the Sheriff's
Office, called a Houston hotel
that billed for one of the charges.


Using information for
"Howard Henry" provided by
the hotel, the victim called the
suspect, posing as a hotel staffer
confirming the reservation. After
speaking with Howard, the vic-
tim called police.
Lawmen used phone records
to identify Howard. Houston
police were waiting for him at
check-in.
Howard also reportedly
charged airline tickets, a
Jacksonville hotel stay and
phone calls to the victim's credit
card. The suspect will be
returned to Monroe County to
face counts of fraud by imper-
sonating another person, and
fraudulent use of credit cards.

-. NOTICE TO KEYS WATER USERS:
TEMPORARY MODIFICATION OF
DISINFECTION TREATMENT
-- PROCESS
The Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority will be temporarily chang-
ing the disinfection process for the Keys potable water supply. From
May 14th until June llth, 2007, the FKAA will disinfect the water
with chlorine rather than chloramines (combined chlorine/ammonia).
Since chlorine is a stronger disinfectant that chloramines, the FKAA
performs the disinfection conversion annually throughout the Keys
water distribution system. This temporary disinfection process is rec-
ommended by the Department of Environmental Protection for water
utilities which utilize chloramines as their primary disinfectant.
This 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.
Customers on dialysis who use a proportioning machine to pre-
pare dialysate are advised to contact their physician regarding appro-
priate steps to accommodate the change in water disinfection.
Customers who have fish tanks or aquatic species are advised to con-
tact professional aquarists to avoid any problems associated with
chlorine.
For more information, please contact the FKAA Water Quality
Division at (305) 296-2454, Ext. 6239.

Holiday Inn due for facelift


Spottswood Cos.
expects to finish
project in 2009
By RYAN McCARTHY
Keynoter contributor

The Holiday Inn in Marathon
is scheduled to close early in June
in preparation for demolition and
reconstruction as a Holiday Inn
Express.
Owner Spottswood Cos.
expects the 134-room hotel will
be offline for 18 to 22 months.
Doug Wright, vice president
of hotel operations for
Spottswood Management, says
the aging property has been in
need of a facelift.
"It's a good property, very
successful," he said, "but in order


for a property to remain viable, it
has to be redeveloped occasional-
ly. It's time right now to do that."
Only 90 of the hotel's 134
rooms are available because of
the condition of the property's
back building. General Manager
Dennis Wardlow says that build-
ing is being used for employee
housing.
"We feel rather than renovate
existing.construction, it's best to
demolish and start fresh," Wright
said. "It allows us to put in new
systems: new wiring, plumbing,
everything. It just makes it a bet-
ter product and makes it more
efficient."
The hotel's tiki bar, a popular
destination for tourists and locals
alike, will also be rebuilt.
"It'll be a brand new tiki bar,


one that won't move in the
wind," Wright laughed. "The
guests love it, the locals love it
and it is a great place."
Spottswood Cos. has applied
to Holiday Inn's franchiser to do
the conversion to a Holiday Inn
Express. The primary difference
between the Express and the
Holiday Inn brands is the lack of
a full-service restaurant. Holiday
Inn Express features a daily com-
plimentary continental breakfast.
Wardlow says the Express
brand will be better suited to
Keys' tourists, most of whom
leave the hotel after breakfast to
explore the island.
While the perception is that
Holiday Inn Express is a thriftier
version of the original, Wright
feels the redevelopment will pro-

Try choice cocktails


RUM / From 20

ed him of stirring mash for
homemade whiskey.
"That started us thinking,"
Miller said. "I'm a chemical
engineer in a former life, and the
thought of building a distillation
column was interesting for me."
They fine-tuned their idea,
deciding to make rum and to add
key lime flavors to make it rep-
resentative of the Keys.
Involving locals as their "offi-
cial taste testers," the two men
obtained an experimental
license and made several batch-
es. After tweaking the ingredi-
ents, they attended a distiller's
conference in California.
"We found a family-run dis-
tillery in Tennessee that uses
copper pot stills and hand-crafts
everything," Miller said. "When
I say that, I mean that for the
first batch we were literally
there labeling every bottle,
pounding in the corks by hand
and filling the bottles four at
time."
It took 11 weeks to go from
idea to finished product, but
they had one more challenge to
overcome finding a distribu-
tor.
"It's very difficult to get any-
one to take you seriously when
you're getting started, so we set
up our own distributorship -
CC Distribution," Don Brown
said.
Brown started the Caribbean
Chocolate Co. five years ago.
Because of his success with that
company, he was brought in at
the tasting phase to help with
the launch of the Pirate's
Choice. He is now vice presi-
dent of CC Distribution and is in
charge of marketing and sales.
Rum is made from molasses fer-
mented with yeast and water.
Pirate's Choice is made from
Grade A table-quality molasses
and natural key lime flavoring
oils.
"Our rum is much sweeter
and smoother than other rums,"
Brown said. "Most other rum
companies use black strap
molasses. That's what is left
over after you've put the cane
syrup in and you extract the
sugar."
Right away, the rum began
winning awards: silver medals
at the International Cane Spirits
Festival and Tasting
Competition in 2006 and at the


American Distilling Institute in
2007. After some more experi-
mentation, Pirate's Choice also'
gained renown for its cocktails.
The two most popular concoc-
tions are the Pirate's Mojito,
which adds a twist to the tradi-
tional mint drink, and Pirate's
Booty, which blends guava,
cranberry, Rose's grenadine and
lime.
"Don's done a great job with
the cocktails," Miller said.
"They are the latest thing in
liquor right now. Everyone
wants these new and unusual
drinks. We teach people how to
make them, and they go home
and have parties looking like a
master mixologist."
Local marketing has been
through direct sales and word of
mouth, since the company does
not have the budget to advertise
in the traditional media. Hosting
"pirate parties" at restaurants
and bars have made them a
locals' favorite. They sponsor
major local events and fishing
tournaments such as the World
Billfish Tournament last month
in Key West.
Pirate's Choice is also the
"official rum" of the Conch
Republic Navy, and they proud-
ly display that fact on every
label. "We all know how much
fun we have with being
Conchs," Brown said. "We
never want to lose sight of that
- that we're quite novel and
unique."
All of their hard work is
finally paying off. Miller was
recently featured on the cover of
the Wall Street Journal in an
article about new liquor entre-
preneurs. Pirate's Choice key
lime rum is sold in many, bars,
restaurants and liquor stores
throughout the Keys, and the
company has found its first dis-
tributor,. Vintage Imports. That
company will make Pirate's
Choice available in Maryland,
Delaware and Washington, D.C.
Pirate's Choice has devel-
oped a dark rum, which is on the
market now, as well as a spiced
rum and key lime vodka, which
are soon to be released.
"Part of the reason that we're
successful is the branding,"
Brown said. "We all have a
sense bf adventure and piracy
about us, and I think people like
to be associated with that. Once
people try our rum, they really
like it. We're fortunate that
we've done everything right."

Tax .collections
go high-tech

The tax collector cometh and
it's about to get more serious,
according to Monroe County Tax
Collector Danise (Dee Dee)
Henriquez.
Tangible taxes owed by Keys
businesses were due April 1. This
year, it appears nearly twice as
many businesses are delinquent
and Henriquez said her office is
getting "more aggressive" about
collections.
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.
Of the approximately 87,000
taxable parcels in the Keys,
1,831 failed to pay real estate
taxes last year, according to
Henriquez.
The Keynoter will publish the
list of available tax certificates
Wednesday's edition, as well.
People interested in this year's
auction can get more information
and register at www.monroe

opened for bids May 9, and will
close on the afternoon of May 31.

How to get
reacquainted
with the Keys
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Summer's heat waves are
slowly creeping into the islands,
and some people are excitedly
marking days off their calendars,
waiting for the opportunity to
escape the constraints of memos
and fax machines.
But sadly, many residents
have forgotten what its like to
make that escape, and the wide-
eyed wonderment seen on the
faces of tourists every day
throughout the Keys have been
as elusive as frostbite or over-
coats to busy Keys residents
stuck in their jobs.
"We can get caught up in our
daily lives and forget what kind
of city we live in," Historic
Tours of America Vice President
Piper Smith said. "Instead of sit-
ting in front of the TV, people
should get out and get reac-
quainted with the island."
Smith said it isn't uncommon
for residents up and down the


Keys to take advantage of the
free entry for local families and
individuals offered throughout
June for HTA attractions like the
Key West Aquarium, Shipwreck
Historeum Museum and the
Harry S Truman Little White
House.
Smith also suggested brush-
ing up on your Conch history by
hopping on the Old Town
Trolley or taking a free ride on
the Conch Train in June or the
first Sunday of every month,
which is a less-known advantage
to many residents. The first
Sunday of every month provides
the same HTA opportunities to
Keys residents a fun-filled,
cost-free way to finish up a
weekend.

Bathing suit required
Another fact that tends to slip
residents' minds: They are com-
pletely surrounded by waters
virtually unmatched.
Whether you are a scuba
diver or not, there's no denying
the beauty of local beaches and
parks like Dry Tortugas National

70 miles west of Key West.
The Yankee Freedom II will
get you to the park in comfort
with air conditioning, soft
drinks, snacks, beer, wine, and
mixed and frozen drinks. Locals
pay $99 of the usual $139 fee,
plus the $5 cost of entering the
island. Monroe County residents
can shave off a little of the trav-
el expense when they present
picture ID.
Once you reach the island,
you're free to snorkel amongst
waters teeming with tarpon, bar-
racuda and minnows. Lush
campgrounds rest outside of his-
toric fort, where Civil War pris-
oners were kept including Dr.
Samuel Mudd, who was impris-
oned for his indirect role in the
assassination of Abraham
Lincoln (he set the broken left
leg of Lincoln's assassin, John
Wilkes Booth).

Island of the arts
One should never be short of
tunes while living on an island
where the music never stops.
For the stressed-out, back-
busting Key Wester, staying up
all hours of the night to catch a
concert doesn't always sound all
that appealing.
These people should take
advantage of the Green Parrot's
"sound checks" -concerts that
begin at 5:30 p.m. for people
who want to finish off a long day
of work with a cold one and a
good show, while avoiding
going into work with their head
and ears pounding the next
morning.

Beyond Key West
Keys residents in search of
something different can venture
out to mile marker 17 to see the
empty Richter Perky's bat tower,
behind the Sugarloaf Lodge. The
tower was built in 1912 with the
intent to rid the area of mosqui-
toes, but Perky's imported bats
fled immediately, leaving the
odd-looking tower vacated.
Further north on Big Pine
Key and No Name keys, deer
roam the area freely outside and
within the National Key Deer
Refuge, giving curious animal
lovers ample chance to catch a
glimpse of the graceful crea-
tures. The refuge office is at 179
Key Deer Blvd., in the Big Pine

And just up or down -
the road on the same island is
Boondocks, which has the best
mini-golf course to be found
anywhere in a truly tropical,
palm-covered setting.
Even further north in
Marathon, adventurers can
explore the trails and wildlife of
the Nature Center of Crane Point

Museum of Natural History of
the Florida Keys. The cost of
entry is $7.50 and $30 for a full-

Stylish PFD,
maybe some tools
say 'I love you'
With Mother's Day coming
on Sunday, the U.S. Coast
Guard Auxiliary is offering
some Mother's Day gift ideas
that say "I love you" while
helping keep boat-loving
Moms safe all year long.
Oh, and they last longer
than roses or a card.
How about a life jacket?
Today's life jackets, also
known as personal flotation
devices, come in a variety of
styles and colors, and are
lightweight, yet they provide
even greater buoyancy than
many older and less-comfort-
able life jackets.
More importantly, since
these life jackets are less cum-
bersome, mom is more likely
to wear it.


Several other great gift
ideas to help keep mom safe:
A carbon-monoxide
detector.
A fire extinguisher.
An anchor.
Emergency signaling kits
- flares, signal mirror, whis-
tle, etc.

Keys group plans


Ecuador mission


Adults, students
helping children,
building garden

From June 4 to 11, the Schutt
family of Marathon is leading
another mission trip to Ecuador.
The family, along with
PULSE (a Marathon youth
group from New Life Assembly
of God formerly known as
Student to Student), is partici-
pating. PULSE has been estab-
lished to minister to seventh-
through 12th-graders in the
Middle Keys. PULSE meets at
New Life Thursday nights at
6:15 p.m. and Sunday nights at
the Marathon Community Park
for fun and games at 6.
In all, about 20 people will
journey to Mi Tambo, Ecuador,
an orphanage in the town of
Ambato, as well as other nearby
small villages to minister to the
Quichua Indians.
The group will arrive in
Quito to join another ministry
group called FACES to help the
working children (child labor is
still legal in Ecuador). Both
groups will gather the street
children working in Quito and
take them to lunch.
Afterward, the children will
be invited to play a game of
miniature golf; the working
children in Quito usually peer
through the fence to watch
other children play miniature
golf. This time, they get to be
on other side of the fence.
FACES was founded in 2003
by missionaries Dan and
Theresa Susong along with the
daughter Lydia. FACES seeks
to meet every facet of the chil-
dren's' needs, from a hot show-
er and nutritious meal to rein-
sertion into the educational sys-
tem.
After Quito, the mission
group will travel to Mi Tambo,
an orphanage in Ambato,
Ecuador. Mi Tambo means My
Shelter and is home to approxi-
mately 60 orphaned children.
The host in Ambato is
Guillermo Vascanez, the direc-
tor of Mi Tambo.
At Mi Tambo, the mission
group will rebuild a vegetable
and fruit garden that was
destroyed by a volcanic erup-


tion last fall.
Other projects include paint-
ing, concrete repairs and gener-
al maintenance will be tended
to by the group. The projects on
site are sponsored by Keys con-
tractor A1A Butch Blast.
The children at Mi Tambo
will be given a vacation Bible
school in the evenings. A
clown, puppet show, games,
ice-cream night and a barbecue
are a just a few things on the list
of events being planned.
Mi Tambo is sponsored in
part through donations and sup-
port from Keys residents.
Pastor Eduardo from United in
Love Church has donated hun-
dreds of Spanish Bibles and
children's books over the years.
United in Love Church (Unidos
en Amor) meets at New Life
Assembly of God church every
Tuesday and Sunday at 7 p.m.
Donations are being accept-
ed for school supplies, small
toys and basic hygiene products
such as soap, toothbrushes,
toothpaste, shampoo and
sponges. The children at the
orphanage have milk once a
week, however, donations are
also being requested so that the
children can have milk once a
day.
Donations are tax-deductible
and can be sent to New Life
Assembly of God, 4711
Overseas Hwy, Marathon, FL
33050. Write in the memo:
"Ecuador Trip."
Any questions, call 743-

Kids afraid of


getting shots?


Here are some
tips to help
dispel the fear
Associated Press

Some children sob, others
scream, and some get so upset
they have to be restrained by
medical staff. But a new study
suggests parents can ease the
anxiety about immunizations by
telling a joke, reading a book or
bringing a favorite toy from
home.
Other proven distraction
techniques include blowing soap
bubbles and, for babies under six
months, using a pacifier dipped
in sugar water.
In the May edition of
Pediatrics, researchers make a
series of recommendations
about how parents, doctors and
nurses can ease the fear and pain
surrounding childhood immu-
nizations.
Here are some of their recom-
mendations:
Before the injection:
While details should be
guided by each child's age and
development level, researchers
found children over the age of 2


benefit when told what will hap-
pen and how it will feel.
Children can also be asked to
help think of things that will help
them cope, such as bringing
along a favorite toy.
Researchers suggest the dis-
cussions occur as close to the
actual injection as possible for
toddlers and preschool-aged
children to avoid escalating anx-
iety. For older children, parents
need to consider how each child
handles stress.
During the injection:
Parents should adopt a
calm and matter-of-fact manner,
because research indicates
adults who are overapologetic,
too reassuring, extremely empa-
thetic or critical of their child's
behavior can cause more dis-
tress.
To distract the child,
researchers suggested using
humor, toys, books, storytelling
or deep, breathing. For babies
under the age of six months, a
pacifier dipped in sugar water
was recommended.
For children who are espe-
cially anxious, doctors should at
least consider using a local anes-
thetic, researchers said.

The Canadian-made meal

THE ULTIMATE

REAL ESTATE EXPERIENCE
When you are buying high-end real estate, it is only natural to expect the process to be a memo-
rable event. A skilled real estate broker can maximize the ease and pleasure of your purchase by
handling every aspect of the luxury transaction. You need someone who has lived in the Keys for a
while and has had similar experiences that you seek.
Your search for a suitable property will be enjoyable when you work with a broker who has a
thorough knowledge of the local inventory of homes and the characteristics of the area. If you are
a boater interested in buying a multi-million dollar home on the water, you will want a broker to
give you a complete description of the shoreline, control depth and accessibility in a particular loca-
tion so you can decide if it meets your needs. Your broker will show you properties that exclusively
fit the architectural style, square footage, views and amenities you prefer, and preserve your privacy
during the transaction.
A knowledgeable realtor will be able to offer you a taste of the lifestyle you will purchase along
with your luxury home.

Groups, cities


urge veto of bill


State would
oversee cable
TV franchising
Associated Press

It's called the Consumer
Choice Act of 2007, but consumer
activists have joined city officials
from across Florida in urging
Gov. Charlie Crist to veto the leg-
islation that's designed to increase
cable television competition and
lower rates.
Crist said Wednesday he's not
yet had a chance to review the bill
(HB 529), which would shift
cable franchising authority from
local governments to the state.
Consumer groups say cus-
tomer service standards are too
loose and the state will be unable
to enforce them as well as cities
and counties. They also predict
communities will lose public
access channels as a result of the
legislation.
"In the pursuit of the valuable
goal of competition in cable TV
markets, the Florida Legislature
has managed to craft a policy that
is unfriendly to consumers," said
Joel Kelsey, grass roots coordina-
tor at Consumers Union, which
publishes Consumer Reports
magazine.
Other organizations that have
urged a veto include the Florida
Public Interest Research Group
and the Consumer Federation of
the Southeast. They don't oppose
the legislation's goal, but say the
governor should give lawmakers
an opportunity to try for a better
bill next year.
The Florida League of Cities
has raised similar issues. It also
contends the bill would nullify
local governments' existing con-
tracts and give cable companies
preferential treatment over other
utilities that use public right of
way.
The bill's sponsor, Rep. Trey
Traviesa, R-Tampa, said the
objections are misplaced or
involve" minor issues that can be
addressed through subsequent
legislation. He said the focus,
instead, should be on expected
rate reductions of at least 25 per-
cent based on what has happened
in other states that have adopted
similar laws.


"Everybody benefits from a
competitive marketplace,"
Traviesa said.
He said the issues were thor-
oughly discussed by the
Legislature and noted the bill
overwhelmingly passed 117-1 in
the House and 30-3 in the Senate.
Florida Public Interest
Research Group legislative direc-
tor Brad Ashwell said rates proba-
bly would drop at first, but he pre-
dicted they eventually would
increase unless more than two
companies compete in the same
territory.
Companies could focus on
serving higher-income areas,
where consumers are more likely
to also buy telephone and Intemet
services, while ignoring low-
income neighborhoods, Ashwell
said.
AT&T spokesman Don Sadler
disagreed, saying, "Statistically
low-income areas are better buy-
ers of cable entertainment prod-
ucts."
His company, Florida's largest
local telephone service provider,
also is committed to making
broadband Internet service avail-
able to all landline customers by
the end of the year, Sadler said.
Walter Dartland, executive
director of the Tallahassee-based
Consumer Federation of the
Southeast, said he would like to
see the Public Service
Commission, which regulates
other utilities, oversee cable serv-
ice.
The bill, instead, gives the
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services oversight
while the attorney general's office
can handle discrimination com-
plaints.
Traviesa said there's no need
for PSC regulation because cable
service is competitive, not a regu-
lated monopoly.
"We needed the involvement
with government to be appropri-
ate and minimal," he said.
Consumer advocates say pub-
lic access channels are in jeopardy
under a provision that requires
cable companies by 2012 to take a
poll of subscribers to determine if
they want such a channel. The bill
says usage must be determined by
"a majority of all the provider's
subscribers in the jurisdiction."

Team plays
South Dade
Friday night
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


Passing has not been a
strength of the Key West High
School football team in recent
years, but from the way a tall
new left-handed quarterback
and a tall new wide receiver
were clicking on throw after
throw in the bright sunlight
Thursday afternoon, that may
change.
The quarterback was Phillip
Jones and the wide receiver
was Cole Harrison. Both are 6-
foot-4 and both will be juniors
when the Conchs open the
2007 season in late August.
Both have been impressive
during spring practice, which
enters its final week Monday
and culminates at 6 p.m.
Friday when the Conchs play


South Dade at Tommy Roberts
Memorial Stadium.
Jones, whom coach Robert
James said hasn't played the
sport since he was in the junior
football league, is one of three
players striving to be the start-
ing quarterback. The others are
senior-to-be Michael Gallagher
and Phillip Young, who led the
JV team last fall as a sopho-
more.
Gallagher, who has been a
running back and is also one of
the team's surest tacklers, is
the best runner of the three.
Jones appears to be the best
passer and Young can throw
and run, James said.
Harrison, who did not play
football last season, is an out-
fielder on the baseball team.
"He's done a tremendous job
the last few days," James said.

Sharpen your skills for swordfish contest


Nighttime
tournament
is June 16.

Proving the old adage that
snoozers lose, only wide-
awake anglers can earn prizes


during the all-night
Southernmost Swordfish
Tournament with Hydro Glow.
Set for the night of June 16,
the angling challenge is pre-
sented by the Key West
Fishing Tournament.


Missed playoffs in '06


OFFENSE / From 35

Danny Jimenez, have aban-
doned the flexbone offense
that was installed last season
and proved less than produc-
tive. Instead, they will use a
more pass-oriented spread
offense.
About 30 players have been
participating in spring drills,
though fewer were on hand
Thursday afternoon.
"We don't have tremendous
numbers, but the guys who
have come out are doing what
we ask," said James, who in
three seasons has a 14-13
record.
Last season, the Conchs
were 4-6 and missed the play-
offs.
Some skilled players return
from that team, including
Gallagher, running back/line-


backer Ralph Major and run-
ning backs Alfred Rahming
and Andres Garcia.
Much of the team's success
will depend on how quickly the
offensive and defensive lines,
depleted by graduation, can be
rebuilt.
Returning linemen include
Kenny Nicoll, Juan Marquez,
Korey Rodriguez and John
Jackson. Also back to rejoin
Gallagher in the secondary are
Jaxon Coleman and Mitch
Andrews.
Key West will open the sea-
son with a home game Aug. 24
against new opponent Boyd
Anderson of Lauderdale
Lakes. Other home games will
be against Monsignor Pace,
Mater Academy, American
Heritage and District 16-4A
newcomer Edison.
The Conchs will also play at
Marathon and Coral Shores.


The team that scores the
most points for releases and
weighed swordfish during the
wee-hours challenge is to win
$1,000 cash, a Hydro Glow
fish light and a gold swordfish
pendant. A $500 cash prize
and a Hydro Glow fish light
await the second-place team,
and a trophy is to be to be
awarded for the heaviest sin-
gle swordfish catch.
The tournament is sched-
uled to begin with a final reg-
istration set for 4-7 p.m. June
16; at King's Pointe Marina
(formerly called Oceanside
Marina), 5950 Peninsula Ave.
Fishing is to begin at 8 p.m.
and continue until 5 a.m. June

Jessica Machetta ......Editor
Todd Swift...........Production


Finally home from Cuba


W at do you get when
you shove five people
and about 200 pounds
of luggage into a tiny Peugeot?
A lost passport, lost visa, lost
money, lost travel license and
lost plane tickets.
I and other Keys journalists
recently went to Cuba. From
Havana, we headed south to the
Bay of Pigs, a journey that
would take a few hours. Along
the way, in Central Cuba near
Nuevo Paz (New Peace), we
pulled over to stretch our legs
and take some photos. I crawled
out of my 12-inch space in the
back seat, set my travel purse on
top of the car and happily
snapped away at the horse-
drawn buggies carrying farmers
and their produce, along with a
very anti-Bush billboard on the
side of the road. ,
We all climbed back in and
started back on our journey
when, a few miles down the
road, I noticed my lap somewhat
emptier than before.
"STOP!," I yelled. "We have
to turn around. I left my purse
on top of the car."
So we did, and we looked,


LiL
Jessica
Machetta


and we dis-
covered
that my
travel
money had
likely made
a Cuban
farmer
much rich-
er than,
probably,
ever
before. I
hope if I
ever return
there will


be a Casa de Machetta with my
passport framed on the wall or
something.
With no official documents, I
had become an illegal traveler.
Not a good thing since a coun-
trywide search was being con-
ducted to search for three would-
be ex-military hijackers on the
loose. So we went to the police
station in Nuevo Paz and
explained what happened. The
police filed a report with their
headquarters so I would once
again "be legal," in case we got
stopped.
With nothing more.I could do


until we were back in Havana,
we headed further south. My
travel partners agreed they could
float me some cash until I could
have to figure out how to get
money wired to the U.S.
Interests Section (tucked away
inside the Swiss embassy) in
Havana proper. Doable, but not
an easy task, especially since all
business in Cuba (and in most
organized countries except for
the U.S.) are closed for Inter-
national Workers Day on May 1.
"I told you this would be an
adventure," said Larry Benvenuti,
my travel and dive buddy who is
a veteran Cuba traveler.
Luckily, knowing all adven-
tures don't come without


mishaps, I had put measures into
place before I left "just in case."
Also luckily, I've got an ear for
language, and though I went to
Cuba knowing not much more
Spanish than "si"-and "cafe con
leche," I now can make my way
through the thickest of situations
(i.e. airport amid a hostage situa-
tion) and explain myself enough
to get what I need and where I
need to go. I even know how to
cuss a little bit if I need to.
Repeat after me: "Perdi mi
pasaje de avi6n."
It's good to be home.

Grosscup heads to Vegas


On the official stationery of
the Conch Republic
Navy Office of the
Admiralty, Rear Admiral
Reef Perkins, CRN
Commander, issued official (or
was that officious) orders in the
satirical style of the Conch
Republic, sending Capt. Bill
Grosscup, "as Minister of
Armaments," to Las Vegas for
this past week.
His mission is to "confuse,
delight and amaze all those who
deign to oppose us into a state of
amicable surrender."
His weapons: illusion, humor
and stale Cuban bread.
The real-world reason for the
trip is no less illusory than the
Conch Republic fantasy.
Grosscup, an accomplished
sleight-of-hand magician,
reunites with an elite group of
"Magicals" for some R&R.
He will be sharing new tricks
with 10 magical pros.
Fielding West is, according
to www.fieldingwest.com, "an
actor, game show host, TV per-
sonality, motion picture technical
director, writer and currently
performing a Las Vegas Comedy
and Magic show."
No. 2 on the list is Penn
Jillette, of Penn and Teller.
Teller will be there too. The duo
has performed together through-
out the baby boom generation.
They call themselves "a couple
of eccentric guys who have
learned how to do a few cool
things."
Teller is the silent magician
and Penn provides quirky
humor. The two have an Emmy-
Award winning TV special, Off-
Broadway and Broadway shows,


A. TV appear-
ances,
books and
even schol-
arly aca-
Sdemic hon-
.., ors on their
Z -- resume.
e C l Charlie

SFrye will
be there.
This
Judi Bradford world-tour-
ing act fea-
tures Charlie juggling, doing
magic, acrobatics, balancing and
comedy, while Sherry, the bored
assistant, yawns.
Lance Burton will also be
there. This is a serious "master
magician" with his own Las
Vegas theater, voted "Best
Theatre" in a visitor's poll.
Rick Thomas has a current
Las Vegas Show of illusion,
weaving magic, music and dance
into a spectacle of performers
and live tigers.
Jeff McBride highlights the
mysterious aspects of magic in
performances that have won
"almost every award the magic
profession has to offer." He has
a magic and mystery school and
has set Guinness World Records
in three categories.
Eugene Burger is "universal-
ly recognized as perhaps the
finest close-up magician in the
world," according to www
.magicbeard.com, the per-
former's Web site.
Close-up magic is tricks per-
formed not from the distant-
stage, but right in front of the
spectator, relying on manipula-
tion and distraction. Burger has


written extensively on the psy-
chology and philosophy of
magic, including best-selling
books, videos and lectures.
Magician of the Year (Magic
Castle in Hollywood, Calif.)
Mac King started his career as a
duo with Burton on summer
tours while in college.
Now a successful comic
magician with TV appearances,
touring shows and corporate pre-
sentations, he performs at
Harrah's in Las Vegas.
Under the seal of the Conch
Republic "Joint & Flask Force"
(Motto: "Pursuing Each Other"),
Perkins tasks Grosscup with
inducting these "Magicals" in
what Perkins calls "the Grand
Fighting Force of the Conch
Republic Navy."
The orders are co-signed by
Capt. Finbar Gittleman, Grand
Admiral of the Republic.
A "Letter of Marque," author-
izing Capt. Bill "The Silver
Shotgun" to the challenge,
explains the "duty shall demand
all natural and unnatural skills
and powers including but not
limited to a bizarre and non-con-
forming sense of humor and a
deep questioning of corporate
politics."
And so the mission is
launched.

But truthfully, just between

"Chair Chat" interview I was in
line for being granted a wish. It
was just a few days later that I
read it in L'Attitudes that the Bat
Boy was being held at the Red
Barn in Key West and forced to
perform in a musical. They don't
call it Key Weird for nothing.
No time to spare, I needed
provisions infrared goggles, a
scoop net, a cigar, two Pirate's
Choice rum Mojitos, one for
each hand, and a camera so I
could prove to the rest of the
world that Bat Boy does exist.
On a mission to snag the infa-
mous impish creature, I put the
pedal-to-the-metal.
A little known tabloid factoid:
Way back when the National
Enquirer made the executive
decision to go color, they didn't
want to get rid of their old black
and white presses that brought
them much fame and fortune.
So, instead of mothballing the
machinery, the executives decid-
ed to start a new low-budget
black and white tabloid and the
Weekly World News was bom.
Its existence proves both

genius and insanity and the
result of walking that line is the

yellow journalism to date.
It was nearing bat-thirty and
the sun was slipping into the sea,
but before I could get to Bat Boy
I had other business to tend to
first. I promised Jimmy Buffett's

Fleetwoods in town


Band plays gig
tonight at the
Hurricane Grille
By DICK CONKLIN
L'Attitudes Contributor

O nce upon a time we lived
in the quiet beachside
town of Delray Beach,
where a great rock band named
the Fabulous Fleetwoods played
weekly at the popular City
Limits nightspot (which after a
short nine years was bulldozed
to make way for more condos).
Fortunately, Keys music
lovers can hear the Fleetwoods
at the Hurricane in Marathon at
least once a year. If you were
there on Friday night, you know
exactly what I'm talking about.
If you are reading this on
Saturday, relax you can catch
them tonight before they head
back north.
The Fabulous Fleetwoods
have been part of the South
Florida live music scene since
1982, mixing crowd-pleasing
cover songs with their-own
rocked-up and inspired original


blues numbers, as well as some
rockin' boogie, roots funk, Tex-
Mex, and other sounds perfect
for dancing and partying.
Front man and harpist John
Harris belts out some classic
blues licks, sharing the spotlight
with very talented guitar man
Richie Schmidt. They are sup-
ported by hard-charging drum-
mer Don Hamzik and super bass
man, "Reverend" Jim ("Don't
Drink the Kool-Aid") Jones. On
occasion, the four guys are
accompanied by Richie's viva-
cious wife Theresa on the key-
boards. The combination makes
for one of the best rock and
blues bands you'll hear any-
where.
John is originally from
Springfield, Ill., and Rich and
Theresa are from Long Island.
Don and Jim are Floridians. John
is a landscape architect, Jim is a
design engineer, and Don works
with cameras in the movie busi-
ness. Rich is the only full-time
musician. According to the good
Reverend, "We all have great
and understanding families who
allow us to do the things we do."


In their early days, the
Fabulous Fleetwoods quickly
became a regional favorite, per-
forming music made popular by
the Fabulous Thunderbirds,
George Thorogood, and the
Nighthawks. It wasn't long
before the group was opening
for performers like Johnny
Winter, John Mayall, James
Cotton, Jimmy Thackery, Little
Feat, Eddie Money, Three Dog
Night, and Allman Brothers'
great, Dickey Betts. They
became regulars at music festi-
vals like Sunfest, Riverwalk
Blues, Hollywood Blues,
Pompano Seafood Festival,
Delray Beach's Jazz on the
Avenue, and the annual Garlic
Fest. They also played at the
2006 Bridge Bash concert at the
Marathon amphitheatre.
"We've been working on new
.songs for our next CD," Richie
said, "and will likely be per-
forming some of them this
weekend, along with some
crowd favorites and new covers.
We are always grateful to be so
well received at the Hurricane
by the owners, staff, and the
local fans."
Sounding like a Chamber of
Commerce director, Richie says
that the band not only enjoys
their trips to the Keys, and but
they often bring some of their
mainland groupies with them.
He says their Hurricane gigs
are a welcome break from their
regular routine in Palm Beach
and Broward counties. Many of
their friends and fans make the
trip down and make a weekend
out of it. Arriving on Friday, the
band usually sets up and has din-
ner at the Hurricane. After an
evening's gig, the band often
unwinds at the at the Blackfin
Resort's bayside peninsula.
Mornings usually begin at the
Stuffed Pig.
Band members enjoy fishing,
snorkeling and aquatics, but
have found such activities to be
a bit exhausting when doing a
show the same night. They say
their favorite way to prepare for
the evening's show is with a
cocktail, poolside at Banana
Bay.
"Both Banana Bay and the
Blackfin are next door to the
Hurricane," Richie said, "so we
only have to put on our shorts
and sandals and walk to work.
Our van usually stays parked for

Get a glimpse of Bat Boy before he escapes again


GONZO / From 4

out on Fleming waiting for my
cruiser to pull up for the great
rum pass off.
I then made my way up and
-pver to Whitehead Street where I
begged a parking space from a


sympathetic loan closer, Linda
Hoeffer, at
Keys Title & Abstract Co. I
changed my shirt, shorts and
shoes in the parking lot, grabbed
my lobster net turned bat net and
jogged down
Angela Street to Mangoes on
Duval to catch the Babes filming


EsAtsandlatett# wedk


"The Buzzz," where I made a
brief unscheduled camera
appearance to explain my
unlikely behavior.
"Lobster season may be
closed, but as of today Bat Boy
season is open and I'm going to
catch the illusive Bat Boy
tonight!"
That seemed to appease the
curious hosts and I was free to
go. Bustin' a gut to get out of
there, I passed Key West Chief
Of Police Bill Maulden in the
audience, who was also a guest
on the show. I couldn't resist
giving him a quick shoulder
massage in hopes of earning a
few brownie points and while
doing so I sent him a subliminal
messaged not to answer his
phone between the time of 7 and
7:30 p.m. incase my plans went
askew.
With my bat net swung over
my shoulder, I shuffled down
Duval. The traffic allowed me
time to think things through and
after some serious contempla-
tion, I realized that capturing a
Bat Boy wasn't going to be as
easy as first thought.
This was definitely a two-.
man operation and thus two men
came to mind, crazy Cujo and
my Comcast producer for
Spotlight On The Keys, Fred
Barta.
As usual, when I needed
Cujo, he was nowhere to be
found. And with a dubious look


in his eye, Fred said, "You're
kidding me right Sammie?"
Such a nice guy that Fred is
- I suckered him with the cute
girl routine and a six-pack of
Old Milwaukee.
"OK, Sammie you've got one
hour and that's all," he said as
we devised a scheme.
Locating the exact where-
abouts of the Bat Boy seemed
suspiciously easy, down Duval
behind the Woman's Club in a
courtyard with overhanging
trees.
Brazenly using himself as a
lure, Fred began squawking like
a sick chicken in distress.
"Bats like chicken blood," he
explained.
I got the feeling he'd done
this sort of thing before.
Like a big game hunter on a
Zimbabwe safari, from where I
believed the Bat Boy to be hid-
ing, motionless I stood around
the comer with my back pressed
against the wall, palms perspir-
ing and with the net high over
my head.
I feared being bitten by the
Bat Boy and was as nervous as a
cat when the door suddenly flew
open and there I was-- eye-to-
eye with the once mythical Bat
Child now a full grown Bat Boy.
With every ounce of my being I
let out a Rebel yell that could be
heard 'round the island, and with
my trusty net I snared the only
living half-bat half-boy creature

For all you non-believers,
I've got the t-shirt and the pho-

phobic, have cat-like reflexes
and can see in the dark, you too
can catch a glimpse of the Bat
Boy at the Red Barn. But be
quick about it before he ends up
a trophy on the wall of some big
game hunter.
The Red Barn Theatre is at
