Impact


fees get


rejected

Council instead
considers citywide
tax for housing
By DAVID BALL
d.,al a-ke,n,:' r r c. nm

It \%as to the sound of
applause that the Marathon City
Council on Wednesday voted
do n an ordinance establishing
impact fees to finance affordable
housing.
NMaor Chris Bull and
Councilman Pete Worthington
argued for the ordinance, which
v\ would ha\e allowed the actual
fees to be set by later resolution,
but lost in the 3-2 vote.
In Ihe end, the majority of
Vice NMa.'or Marilyn Tempest
and councilmen Don Vasil and
Mike Cinque echoed many
speakers concerns that impact
fee's wouldd unfairly target and
oi erburden connmercial develop-
ment.
But the council, and many of
the Realtors. builders and resi-
dents in attendance, instead
seemed to ta\ or the idea of creat-
ing a ne\ c\ tax to fund afford-
able housing.
See IMPACT FEE / 5


They also turn back a referendum question
asking whether terms go from 2 to 4 years


These were the standout
results of Tuesday's Islamorada
referendum on changes to the
village charter.
Turnout for the special elec-


tion was slightly more than 25
percent of the 4,986 registered
voters in Islamorada.
The height issue attracted the
most attention prior to the spe-
cial election and received the
highest amount of voter partici-


pation 1,239 votes.
Islamorada already has a code
prohibiting buildings taller than
35 feet, but by putting it in the
charter, the chances of develop-
ers being granted exceptions are
significantly limited.
More than 80 percent of those
who participated in the election

THE FUN IS OVER: Two suspects are brought to shore Monday after being arrested at the
Sandbar off Islamorada during law-enforcement patrols related to the annual Hospitality
Expo bash. One was charged with felony possession of marijuana, the other with a
Miami-Dade warrant for driving under the influence. See story, Page 14.



Groups seek greener Keys


Upcoming sessions
focus on climate
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Florida Keys officials will
think globally and meet locally
at two environmental forums
this week.


Both meetings are independ-
ent of each other but will address
climate and environmental con-
cerns that reach far beyond
Monroe County borders.
"It's May and we're expect-
ing another cold front," said
Richard Grathwohl, a Marathon
fishing guide who serves on the
Florida Keys National Marine


Sanctuary Advisory Council.
"It's the whole global-warm-
ing thing," Grathwohl said.
"Something is out of whack, and
the fish can't understand what's
going on."
At 9 a.m. Tuesday, the sanc-
tuary panel meets at the Harvey
Government Center in Key West
for a day-long session on climate

change and the environmental
effects of energy production. It's
broadcast on Monroe County
Channel 76 on Comcast Cable.
The special session was
triggered by a sanctuary coun-
cil debate over whether it
should formally oppose a
large coal-powered energy
plant proposed for Glades
County, near Lake
Okeechobee.
Additional carbon and mer-
cury emissions into the atmos-
phere could add to global
warming that threatens the
coral reef, members said.
Deciding more information
was needed, the panel has
called in a number of experts
to speak on climate change in
general and the power-plant
proposal in particular. Florida
Power and Light officials have
said the plant will be built to
high standards of environmen-
tal protection.
"It will still produce pollu-
tants like mercury, and Florida
Bay has problem with mercury
as it is," said Jerry Lorenz of
Audubon of Florida, and a
sanctuary panel member.
"We're at the end of the
pipeline and everything com-
ing downstream affects us."
"Global warming is a con-
tentious issue but, it is a real
concern, I believe," Lorenz
said. "Our corals are sensitive
to a number of aspects of cli-
mate change, including
warmer water and ocean acid-
ification."
The Key West City
Commission and Marathon
City Council this month
passed resolutions signing on
to the U.S. Conference of
Mayors' Climate Change
Agreement, which urges gov-
ernments to enact policies and
programs to meet or beat the
target of reducing global
warming pollution levels to 7
percent below 1990 levels by
2012. This goal was estab-
lished by the Kyoto Protocol,
which the United States did
not sign.
Other Keys governments
have not taken up the Climate
Change Agreement.
At 10 a.m. Thursday, local
county and municipal officials
meet for a session on the

Dave Boerner, mayor of
Islamorada. "I can't think of a
more environmentally sensi-
tive place."
"This is something we
should have been doing a long
time ago, so now we have to
catch up," Boerner said. "It
makes sense economically and
environmentally."
Experts will outline ways
for local governments to help
communities become more
"green," touching on alterna-
tive energy and ways to cut
water use, among other topics.
"The Keys are not operat-
ing in a sustainable manner
and we should be," Boerner
said. "This isn't rocket sci-
ence."

VILLAGE / From 1

voted in favor of the measure.
The move to increase the
terms of the five Village Council
members from two to four years
was rejected by 64 percent of the
participating Islamorada voters
- 443-788.
Residents also voted 851-379
to require voter approval to
accompany a super-majority 4-1
vote on the Village Council
before council members get a
raise. Council members previ-
ously only needed the 4-1 vote
to increase their compensation.
Residents voted 864-362 to
change the rules for filling
vacancies on the Village
Council.
Now, if a council member
leaves office with less than 50
percent of his or her term
remaining, the council will
appoint a replacement to fill the


rest to the term.
If 50 percent or more of the
term is left, a replacement will
be chosen by the council to serve
until the next scheduled election.
The other item on the ballot
was a change to the rules about
who can serve on the village
election canvassing board.
Residents voted 894-310 in
favor of the changes.
The board now must be made
up of at least three members,
including the village clerk and at
least two council members not
running for re-election. If no
council member is eligible, the
council .will appoint any addi-
tional members.
Before the referendum, the
board was composed of the vil-
lage clerk and any council mem-
ber not running for re-election.
There previously was no pro-
vision regarding appointing can-
vassing board members by the
council.

Fees get voted down


IMPACT FEE / From 1

"This should be taxed on
every property owner in the city,"
said attorney and city Housing
Task Force member Frank
Greenman, who first offered the
idea. "We should pay for the mis-
take we made together as a com-
munity."
The council briefly discussed
a special taxing district that
would likely increase the city's
millage rate a method
Worthington said "would be an
unpopular idea for the people up
here" on the council.
"That was a ploy to get this
impact fee off the table,"
Worthington told the Keynoter
after the- meeting. "Taxes are not
going to go up to support afford-
able housing in city of Marathon.
It seemed everyone had basically
made up their minds about the
impact fees."
The council recently had a
workshop addressing ways to cut
spending and lower tax rates for
the coming fiscal year in light of
new tax laws being proposed in
the state Legislature. City
Manager Mike Puto has institut-
ed a hiring freeze to further curb
growth.
But some speakers, including
Realtor Bruce Schmitt, said resi-
dents may be willing to chip in
their fair share when it comes to
affordable housing.
"The question is, is there a
will in this community to deal
with this issue?" Schmitt said.
"I'm not sure you'd have opposi-
tion to it."
City Attorney Jimmy Morales
said money raised through
impact fees could be used only
for affordable-housing needs


caused solely by the impact of
new development, while money
raised through a tax could be
applied to any needs.
Planning Director Fred Gross
said the impact-fee ordinance
would have replaced the city's
current de facto impact fee
assessed in development agree-
ments where developers have
to provide 20 percent of the total
project units as affordable or pro-
vide $200,000 per required
affordable unit.
A report from Gross showed
that under that continuing policy,
developers are slated to provide
as many as 91 units of affordable
housing or $12.35 million or
some combination of units and
cash. So far, only a few units
have been built by the Singh Co.
Developers are usually
required to provide either cash or
finished units before the first
market-rate unit receives a cer-
tificate of occupancy. Vasil sug-
gested the city require payment
before the first building is torn
down for redevelopment.
"We've already lost units,"
Vasil said. "The impact has taken
place, and yet we've gotten noth-

Marathon's current impact
fees for roads, fire, parks and
other infrastructure are higher
than in most Florida counties and
municipalities that responded to a
February 2006 study by the
Florida Impact Fee Review Task
Force commissioned by the state

However, Marathon's fees,
even with the proposed afford-
able fees, would likely be less

County removing
exotics from U.S. 1

The Monroe County
Planning Department has
received a $144,000 grant from
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection,
Bureau of Invasive Plant
Management, to remove inva-
sive exotic plants along U.S. 1
from mile marker 6 to 106,
department officials say.
Working under the combined
direction of the Florida Keys


Scenic Highway coordinator and
the Monroe County land stew-
ard, the contractor, Aquatic
Vegetation Control, will work
until June 1 to clear the exotics
in designated areas.
During the process, the con-
tractor has been removing the
exotic plants and stacking them
within the right of way. The
piles are then chipped by the
state Department of Trans-
portation.
The next step is creating a
landscape plan for the unincor-
porated areas of the highway.

Sustainable living

an attainable goal

Think globally, act locally. It sounds like a cliche,'but it should
be a lifestyle, especially here in the Keys, where our economy is
directly dependent on our precious environment.
While Keys residents are far more environmentally aware than
most any other place in the country and make green practices the
norm, there's more could we do more a lot more.
Tuesday and Thursday, governments, environmental groups,
academics, utilities and so many even trash haulers are
coming together for two separate but parallel events directly
challenging the community to get serious about climate change,
clean air, and clean and sustainable energy.
The Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary Advisory
Council hosts the first one, an all-day session Tuesday starting at
9 a.m. at the Harvey Government Center in Key West.
The day will feature presenter after presenter talking about
everything from climate change's impacts on our coral reefs to
power-plant water use a timely topic considering the ongoing
drought.
Then Thursday from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Florida Keys
Electric Cooperative in Marathon, a consortium called the
Keyswide Sustain-Ability Project gathers to get down to brass
tacks about conserving energy and saving water.
Invitees are diverse local governments, utilities, Sarasota
County, Sea Air Land Technologies, the Southern Alliance for
Clean Energy.
This will not be just some feel-good gathering to get in tune
with nature. Organizers want the governments and others to
bring their electric and water bills, and fleet information -
diesel, hybrid, gas burner? They'll show how much we use, and
how much we likely waste.
Some are already ahead of the curve.
A few years back, a diverse group of Keys interests represent-
ing both the public and private sectors recognized our limits and
thus was bor GLEE the Green Living & Energy Expo, a de
facto trade show of everything sustainable. Its first year was
2005. There have been two since. We can expect them to contin-
ue.
The National Weather Service's new building on White Street
was designed and built to be sustainable. It has a cistern, water
re-use you name it, it's got it. The bureau hopes for
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification
from the nonprofit U.S. Green Building Council which could
be a first for the Keys.
Everyone else needs to learn to live the green life and sus-
tainable life. City needs a new car? Make it a hybrid. City think-
ing about a new city hall? Make it energy efficient.
Think globally, act locally.

Government destroys family's hopes


EDITOR:
Every day, someone asks me about the
restaurant "Hey, how's the restaurant
coming, when is that restaurant going to be
finished, what's happening with the restau-
rant? Weren't you guys building a restaurant
down by the bridge? What's up with that?"
Well, after eight years of trying, I am sad
to say that my parents still can't get the
answers they need from the city of Marathon
to get this project off the ground and have
decided to sell the property. Congratulations
to the city and county. They blew it.
Every time a door opened, they slammed
another one right in their face. I hope the
governments have a nice warm fuzzy feeling
inside because if it were up to me, I would
fire everyone. The City Council approved
this project almost three years ago but appar-
ently that means nothing.
My father was 57 when he decided to do
this project. He will be 65 in January -
eight years of permits and application fees
down the drain. This was the last project he
wanted to do before he retired. Now we all
can just kiss it goodbye.
I am so disappointed in my hometown that
it makes me physically ill. I was born right
here in Marathon at Fishermen's Hospital in
1966, and with all of the problems we have
in this town, I still love Marathon more today
more than ever.
I am confused at how Cay Clubs,
Earthmark and the Singh Co. (three great
companies) can pump out resort after resort,


building after building, year after year, and
we can't seem to do one.
There is only one oceanfront property like
this in the world and it sits right next to the
Seven Mile Bridge. We all know how spec-
tacular the sunsets are down there. Wouldn't
it have been nice to enjoy a fish sandwich
and an iced tea out on the deck watching that
sunset?
It absolutely breaks my heart in pieces to
know that our property down by the bridge
will be sold to build condos and townhouses.

Church steps up for KAIR


EDITOR:
I want to thank the New Life
Assembly of God church.for its
recent efforts to help KAIR
(Keys Area Interdenominational
Resources).
The church held an auction
and a special church service at-
the Marathon Community Park.
KAIR will use the donations
from these two events to assist
local needy residents with food,


medicine and other financial
assistance.
We recognize the time and
effort spent organizing these
events and are grateful for the
commitment from Pastor Keith
LaFountain and his parishioners
to help their fellow neighbors in
Marathon. Again, many thanks
to New Life Assembly.

Foundation helps a young leader


EDITOR:
I'm a fifth-grader at Stanley
Switlik Elementary School and I
was chosen by my teacher to
have the opportunity to attend
the Junior National Young
Leaders Conference in
Washington, D.C.
My dad had broken his ankle
in December, so my parents
were unable to give.me any
money due to the costs for that.
I had to get money from differ-
ent businesses, and the Coldwell
Banker Schmitt Charitable
Foundation was there for me
when I was getting to the dead-


line to turn in the application
and tuition costs to go.
The foundation gave me
around 75 percent of the tuition
costs, and I greatly appreciate
their contribution because I
probably wouldn't be able to go
otherwise. I encourage.other
children to contact the founda-
tion if they have trouble getting
money for a similar trip.
Also, I would like to thank
again all the other people who
helped me to attend the Young
Leaders Conference.

Court system unfair in divorce cases


EDITOR:
There is a great injustice in.
Monroe County and it comes
from the Monroe County court
system and legal aide.
In this area, if you have two
poor people who are married
and one of them decides not to
be, the first one who runs down
to the county legal aide office
and files for assistance wins a
free lawyer while the other one
is not only not given a free
lawyer, but is offered zero legal
assistance at all due to the con-
flict of interest that would be
created by the same office giv-
ing legal assistance to both
sides.
This results in one person
getting thousands of dollars in
free legal assistance on what to
say, what to do, what not to do
and what legal forms need to
be filled out for proper proce-
dure, while the other person,
who is equally as poor, is left
out in the legal proverbial cold
to struggle and fend for them-
selves, unknowing of what is
going on and what is expected
and legally required, often
resulting in losing the case
before it ever gets to a court-
room.
This policy of government


to provide for one and not for
the other is unfair and unjust,
and the race to get the free
service only goes to promote
the life-wrecking, recreational-
like impulsiveness to file for
divorce under Florida's no-fault
divorce policy. This problem
could possibly be fixed by hav-
ing not one but two separate
and independent not-for-profit
legal advice centers.
I encourage the citizens of
this community to present this
dilemma and possible solution
to their elected officials.

Vacuum pump system

is the most cost effective


It starts with the state mandate that all
wastewater treatment systems in Monroe
County be upgraded to meet nutrient
removal requirements by July 2010. The
mandate applies to all property owners.
If the local governments do not provide
compliant wastewater treatment, the individ-
ual property owners will be required to
upgrade their systems. The challenge facing
the city of Marathon is to provide waste-
water treatment for the residents that cost
less per person than upgrading
their individual systems would.
Any system that is constructed
at an average cost in excess of
$20,000 per equivalent dwelling .
unit is a disservice to the resi-
dents since they could upgrade
their systems for about that price.
In the end, the residents will pay
for upgraded wastewater treat- C
ment one way or another. Local
leaders that insist on affordable
wastewater treatment are saving
each resident money and they Susie

As to the vacuum versus gravity question,
this was thoroughly studied. A properly
designed, constructed and operated vacuum
system is very cost effective and can have a
lower operation and maintenance cost than a
gravity system. Vacuum systems have been
in use for many years all across the country
and have been proven to be a cost effective
and reliable means of wastewater collection.
In areas with a flat topography and high
groundwater table, gravity systems are gen-
eral constructed with many small-

Rat killings to begin


Bait stations
on Grassy Key
get toxic soon
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com


The days of the Gambian giant
pouch rats on Grassy Key may be
numbered.
After years of studies and pilot
programs, wildlife officials on
Monday will begin a six-week
program to eradicate every last
one of the invasive rodents, said
Scott Hardin, exotic-species
coordinator with the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission.
Hardin said U.S. Department
of Agriculture Wildlife Services
workers will fill some 1,000
PVC-tube bait stations, with
peanut butter beginning at the
east end of Grassy Key and mov-
ing west.
After three days, a zinc-phos-
phide toxicant will be added for
seven days. The idea is that the
rats, which are about the only ani-
mal slender and flexible enough
to fit into the 4-inch tubes, will
take the bait back into their bur-
rows and quickly die.
"When we did a trial, all the
rats died within two hours, some
in an hour, after eating very little
bait," Hardin said. "We think
most of them will go back into
their burrows and die, but some
will die in the wrong places -
under houses and out in the open.
If people notice a dead Gambian
rat, they need to call the informa-
tion line."

U.S. Department of Agriculture worker Pedro Quinones baits
one of 1,000 PVC bait stations on Grassy Key with peanut
butter to lure Gambian pouch rats. Poison will soon be added
to the bait stations to eradicate the invasive species.


Residents can call (866) 484-
7586 to get up-to-date informa-
tion on what areas are being bait-
ed. All bait stations are marked as
containing poison and include the
local state Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission num-
ber of 289-2320.
Those who suspect accidental
pet poisoning should call (888)
426-4435, while those who sus-
pect human exposure should call
(800) 222-1222.
Hardin said residents should
be very watchful of pets, children
and themselves during this effort,
which is now more needed than
ever, as it appears the rat popula-
tion could be quickly growing.
Officials recently sent 20 cap-
tured rats to a USDA laboratory
in Colorado. Three of the females
reportedly had litters during
transport.
"They can reproduce five to
six times a year, and they gener-
ally throw off four to six off-
spring," Hardin said. "There's so
much natural food growing out
there, the stage could be set to
build their numbers back up to


pre-hurricane [Wilma] density."
Hardin said after the six weeks
are up, officials will set up cam-
eras to monitor the area for sever-
al years to ensure the rats are
eliminated.
"If we missed one, we'll target
that small area again," Hardin
said. "During this entire time, any
citizen reporting Gambian rats is
really important to us."
The Gambian rat problem
reportedly began sometime
between 1999 and 2001, when a
Grassy Key woman was breeding
the rats, an African species that
can grow up to 9 pounds, to sell
to pet stores and eventually let
them escape.
Gambian rats elsewhere in the
country were linked to a monkey-
pox outbreak in 2003, and the
species was made illegal for trade
in the U.S. The rats are now a
"prohibited species" by the FWC,
and only researchers, exhibitors
and those with stringent biosecuri-
ty can possess them with a permit.
Grassy Key reportedly con-
tains the only wild breeding pop-
ulation of the rats in the U.S.

State taps Carruthers'


insurance expertise


And FIRM has
2 open houses
Tuesday, Thursday
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Key West guesthouse owner
Heather Carruthers never dreamt
she'd be in the insurance busi-
ness. But these days she's among
the best hopes the Keys have for
surviving windstorm rates.
Wednesday, state Chief
Financial Officer Alex Sink
announced she was appointed to
the seven-member Task Force on
Citizens Property Insurance
Claims Handling and
Resolution. State Insurance
Commissioner Kevin McCarty
appointed her.
The task force meets for the
first time Monday at 9 a.m. at the
Citizens Claim Center in
Jacksonville.
"I'm looking to figure how
they can tell us the average time
they take to settle a claim,"
Carruthers said Friday. "And
what percentage they pay on
claims. I also want to know how
many claims are still outstanding
from the 2004 and 2005 hurri-
cane seasons."


Carruthers sits on the board of
the local grassroots organization
Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe,
or FIRM. The group sprung up in
March 2006 in response to huge
proposed rate increases by
Citizens, the quasi-governmental
insurer of last resort.
Because of the nature of the
Keys, Citizens is about the only
carrier available to homeowners
in Monroe County.
The state Legislature created
the new statewide panel during
its January special session on
insurance. Its charge is to look at
ways to tackle problems with the
way Citizens Property Insurance
Corp. handled 2004 and 2005
hurricane claims; and evaluate
Citizens' procedures on claims
handling, claims resolution and
customer service. .
"We have five meetings
between now and the end of June
and one conference call,"
Carruthers said. The first meet-
ing will likely be a familiariza-
tion, but the second, she said,
will be to "flesh out" the issues.
In the meantime, FIRM con-
tinues to fight for the issues that
are hitting the Keys hard.
The organization is holding
town-hall meetings Tuesday at 6


p.m. at Marathon High School's
old gym and Thursday at 6 p.m.
at Horace O'Bryant Middle
School in Key West. State Rep.
Ron Saunders is expected to
attend, and the focus is expected
to be on condo insurance.
Monroe County has been one
of the hardest-hit counties in the
state by rising premiums in
windstorm coverage. The area is
considered high risk despite the
fact that damage payouts com-
pared to the rest of the state over
the destructive 2004 and 2005
seasons have been comparative-
ly low.
The Legislature imposed a
rate freeze on Citizens until
January 2009, according to
Saunders. But that freeze only
applies to residential properties.
"We want to open the issue of
condos," FIRM spokeswoman
Teri Johnston said. "They're
being clobbered with 300 to 400
percent increases. And with the
direction Monroe County is
moving, condos are going to be
major players. We need to do
something to protect those peo-
ple.."
Currently, condos are billed

Cay Clubs reducing staff again


Company says
it's combining
some services
Keynoter Staff

A reduction in staff and
equipment for Cay Clubs
Resorts and Marinas' Cristal
Clear Charters in the Keys is
the latest effort by the
Clearwater-based resort devel-
oper to tighten its purse strings.
Friday, while charter servic-
es were still booking reserva-
tions for dive and fishing trips,
some of the staff running those
operations were being let go.
Frank Rego, Cay Clubs
operations manager, could not
be reached for comment, but
Joe Miller, who oversees water-


sports operations in the Middle
and Upper Keys, said steps to
consolidate were being taken.
"We're just doing some shop
consolidations. We've got loca-
tions that are within miles of
each other," he said. "Because
of rising fuel costs, it just
makes sense to run your
newest, most-efficient equip-
ment."
Miller said a reduction in
staff is a natural part of those
consolidations.
Last week, Cay Clubs dis-
missed roughly 80 of its 1,000
workers amid a seasonal slow-
down, cold condominium sales
and a wait-and-see develop-
ment strategy.
Now it appears more
employees will be added to that


list.
"We are making adjustments
to come in line with a down
real estate market right now,"
Rego told the Miami Herald at
that time. "We don't want to be
like all the other developers
across the country that are,
going under."
The dismissals come after a
three-year acquisition spree
that saw Cay Clubs buy nine
hotels and properties on the
island chain, making it one of
the biggest resort owners in the
Keys.
Specifics as to which Cay
Clubs locations would be cut-
ting charter services were not
available at press time.

This report was supple-
mented with material from the
Miami Herald.

The Palace Gardens Difference

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

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

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

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

Trailer-park freeze in place i 4


No applications


being accepted
for redevelopment
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Residents of mobile-home
parks facing eviction have been
fighting hard since March for a
moratorium on park redevelop-
ment.
Now that they have won,
they have six months to make
something happen, Monroe
County Mayor Mario Di
Gennaro says.
"They keep on saying they
can come up with something,"
Di Gennaro told the Keynoter.
"If they can pull the rabbit out
of the hat and make everyone
happy, why not give them a
chance?"
During its regular meeting
Wednesday in Key Largo, the
commission voted unanimously
to impose a six-month freeze on
trailer-park redevelopment.
Commissioner Dixie Spehar
was absent.
Di Gennaro's vote surprised
some advocating for the mora-
torium because he's been vocal-
ly opposed to it for months.
"We're all so split on this,"
he said. "If we can get the job
done and upgrade these places,
we ought to try."
The moratorium was written
by attorney Robert Cintron,
who has spent years advocating
for the rights of trailer-park res-


idents.
"My clients and I are quite
pleased with the unanimous
vote of the commissioners in
support of the moratorium," he
said. "This vote sends a strong
message to the community that
our elected officials do care
about the plight of mobile-home
residents whose homes are on
the chopping block."
Raymond Fries lives in the
Seahorse RV Park on Big Pine
Key. He says the development
reprieve will allow him and his
neighbors to have a shot at sav-
ing their homes.
Residents face a September
eviction date and hope to buy
the land from the developer
before then.
"All we want to do is secure
the land," Fries said. "We're
trying not to be in the landlord
situation anymore. We want to
upgrade them, but we want
something that says we can run
our own park."
Like many parks throughout
the Keys, Seahorse provides
housing at some of-the lowest
rates in the islands. Though
they don't own the land, many
mobile-home residents have
laid down roots, investing in
their homes, expanding them
and upgrading them.
Attorney Tim Koenig sits on
the county's Workforce
Housing Task Force. He warned
against the moratorium
Wednesday.
"The moratorium being pro-

No-anchor zone
signs going in

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission expects to start
installing signs and buoys
Friday marking the new no-
anchor zone for masted vessels
in Pine Channel in the Lower
Keys.
Masted vessels in -Pine
Channel have the potential dur-
ing a storm to break loose from
their moorings and become
entangled in the main electrical
transmission line that brings
electricity into the Keys from
the mainland.


In the past, such as during
Hurricane Katrina in 2005, such
entanglements knocked out
power to a significant portion of
the Keys.
All of the signs and buoys
should be in place by Tuesday.
Once they are, the FWC says its
officers will "educate" the pub-
lic about the zone and issue
warnings for the first 30 days.
After that, violators will receive
$61 tickets.
After the citation is issued, if
the boat is not removed imme-
diately, the Sheriff's Office or
FWC will have the boat towed
and the owner will have to pay
to claim the vessel from the
towing company.


posed will not do anything to
advance affordable housing,"
he said. "It will increase the
cost to property owners. It will
be challenged and it will be a
very expensive prospect to the
county taxpayers."
Starting with its passage, the
moratorium stops the county
from issuing building and
development permits, and
accepting applications for the
redevelopment or conversion on
mobile-home parks.
Any redevelopment approval
granted before the moratorium
is not affected.
A previous freeze on rede-
veloprrient of the parks ended in
May 2006. That year-long
moratorium spawned an ordi-
nance that requires 30 percent
of any redeveloped park be
reserved as affordable housing.
Cintron says the latest freeze
will allow a Workforce Housing
Task Force proposal to work its
way through the system. That
mobile-home protection ordi-
nance provides a number of
incentives for park owners to
retain the current use while pro-
viding a timeline for upgrading
the units within each park.

The Monroe County
Commission meets Monday in
special session to consider a
slew of requests for administra-
tive relief and zoning changes.
The meeting begins at 3 p.m.
at the Marathon Government
Center. All items on the agenda
are up for public hearings.
Under consideration are 13
zoning changes throughout the
county, many of them changing
parcels in Ocean Reef to conser-
vation land.
A land-use strategic plan for
Stock Island, called the Livable
CommuniKeys plan, is also on
the agenda. It includes a 120-
page harbor preservation and
development plan compiled by
the county after staff conducted
an economic survey of Stock
Island's Safe Harbor.
County Planner Jose Papa
wrote that the study found that
marine-related activities yield
more than $36 million gross
receipts from the waterfront
property. Non-marine related

According to county Sewer
Project Manager Liz Wood, the
funds will be advanced on
money that will be reimbursed
by future assessments on the
system's users.
She added that the dearth of
funding from the Legislature
could delay the county's time-
frame for the two projects.
State Sen. Larcenia Bullard,
who- like Saunders represents
the Keys, told commissioners
during her own summary of the
2007 legislative session that the
state allocated $100,000 for
Marathon's sewer system.
She said she advocated ear-
marking $75 million for Monroe
County sewers.
"I will continue to speak on
this issue and pursue funding,"
she told the commission.
In other action Wednesday,
the following items were
approved:
Two appointments to the


series and restaurants account
for another $4.8 million annual-
ly.
"The businesses found along
Safe Harbor employ about 359
people," Papa wrote. Of these,
"191 or approximately 53 per-
cent live within the harbor."
Among the proposals in the
plan:
Create density controls
that would allow additional
docking space for commercial
fishing vessels and affordable
housing.
Promote the reservation of
existing slips for commercial
fishing boats.
Work with owners of large
tracts of land to promote new
sources of income to support
and preserve existing water-
dependant uses.
Allow flexibility in the
county's parking requirements
to encourage water-based public
parking.

not conform to existing zoning.

Completion of the building has
been delayed because of con-

David Koppel presented a con-
tract for the facade at a cost of
$1.9 million.
Construction on the court-
house started in the mid-1990s.

Additionally, the commission

Crowds for the notorious
Hospitality Expo staged earlier
this week in Islamorada were
smaller than in recent years, but
law officers stayed busy.
"Although the crowd was not
as large, the number of arrests
was about the same," Monroe
County Sheriff's Office spokes-
woman Becky Herrin said.
Officers reported about 48
arrests during the event, which
started attracting crowds Sunday
and officially ran Monday and
Tuesday.
Thirty of those were under a
state law that allows people to be
taken into protective custody
when they cannot take care of
themselves. Such cases usually
involve severe intoxication or
drug use, Herrin said.
Other arrests made in the
Whale Harbor vicinity included
trespass, interference with law
officers, disorderly conduct,
assault and misdemeanor posses-
sion of marijuana.
At least six people were
arrested in Whale Harbor on
counts of boating under the influ-
ence.

Hospitality Expo started as

for people who work in South
Florida's bars and restaurants.
In recent years, the resort
cracked down on rowdy behav-
ior, limited access to Holiday Isle
property and renamed the event
Hospitality Expo.
Much of the controversial
activity migrated to the Sandbar

It appeared that 2006 marked
the end of Hospitality Expo since
new owners of Holiday Isle

Saunders hopeful on tax-relief plan


One would give
huge exemption
for the Keys
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

State Rep. Ron Saunders says
he and his fellow' legislators are
working overtime so they are
poised with a- viable plan for
property-tax relief when the
Legislature's special session on
taxes begins in Tallahassee June
12.
"My best guess is we'll be
looking at some sort of super
exemption," Saunders told the
Monroe County Commission
during its regular meeting
Wednesday in Key Largo. "We
want to do it in a way that targets
individual property owners."
House Democrats, he said,
have come up with a proposal


that would create a property
exemption equal to half the medi-
an property value in a county.
Right now, property owners
are eligible to exempt $25,000
value on their residence.
Saunders says that exemption
may seem generous in a county
where the mean property value is
$150,000, but not where the
property values average half a
million dollars.
. According to an analysis
pulled together by the House
Democrats, the median home
price in Monroe County is
$498,000 highest in the state.
Palm Beach County's mean value
is $238,000. Calhoun County is
the lowest average in the state at
just $41,000.
If implemented, Monroe
County residents would enjoy a
$240,000 property tax exemp-
tion.


The plan, Saunders said,
would apply the additional
exemption after the first $50,000
of home value. In addition,
homeowners would have the


Monroe

County

choice of taking the exemption of
half the median value, or protec-
tion under the Save Our Homes
constitutional amendment, which
caps increases in annual assess-


:ments at 3 p.m.
"Homeowners would be able
to choose whichever is of more
benefit to them," Saunders said.
Property owners who have
owned their homes for many
years may have taxable values
even lower than half of the medi-
an value, thanks to Save Our
Homes.
Local governments are stress-
ing since the special session
leaves them unsure whether they
will be able to build budgets
based upon property tax dollars
or not.
Most budgets near completion
by June, but most entities are
holding their collective breath
until the Legislature comes up
with a plan.
During the regular session, the
Senate, House and Gov. Clarlie
Crist all came up with disparate
proposals, and the session ended
with no property-tax relief in
place.


The most aggressive plan was
floated by House Speaker Marco
Rubio. He suggested replacing
property taxes with a higher sales
tax.
"For every dollar we are going
to save, it will come out of the
county budget," Saunders warned
the commission, "because none
of the plans at this point has
replacement dollars. The sales-
tax idea was dead on arrival."
Saunders says the County
commission could "get around"
the tax cut by voting to override
the exemption. But it would take
agreement by four of the five
commissioners.
Saunders says a lot of local
government bodies are actually
preparing two versions of their
budgets one based upon
known tax revenues and one that
deals with what could be exten-
sive cuts if the Legislature passes
a relief bill during the special ses-
sion.

Peebles deal returns to City Council


City Hall lease,

session at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at
the Marathon Government
Center. Agenda items include:
+ Resolutions to approve
modifications to a development
agreement with Peebles Corp. to
redevelop the Key Colony Bay

The items were up for
approval a month ago, but
Councilman Mike Cinque


pulled them off the consent
agenda and said the developer
wants to propose a plan to
develop the required eight
affordable housing units on site.
Mayor Chris Bull argued that
language in the development
agreement already allows
Peebles to build the affordable
units in lieu of donating $1.6
million to the city, and so con-
tinuing the approval wasn't nec-
essary.
The agreement-allows rede-

mailed petitions to dissolve the
city.
Buhler has refused to say
how many petitions have been
signed, although she said she
would soon deliver them to state
Rep. Ron Saunders as support
for a referendum to dissolve the
city.

An informational item (no


action or discussion required)
on a request for proposals for
landscaping work for the
Community Park phases one
and two, Sombrero and Coco

The RFP comes after City
Manager Mike Puto admitted he
renewed landscaping and main-
tenance contracts for those
parks with Gonzalez worth
$461,000 and included
$137,000 in extra payments
made without council approval.
That came a week after
Rosasco and. City Attorney
Jimmy Morales defended the
renewals as consistent with city
policy, which states the city
manager can approve renewals
if the price change is less than
$25,000.
The council has since clari-
fied the policy so all changes
and renewals for contracts
worth. more than $25,000, no
matter how little the contract
changes, come for a council


vote.
+ Second reading of an ordi-
nance establishing a uniform
speed zone throughout the city.
The ordinance sets the limit for
city streets at 25 mph unless
they are currently posted a dif-
ferent speed.
State statute previously made
limits on all streets 30 mph, and
any speed limit posted below 30
mph was unenforceable, law
enforcement officials said.
The ordinance failed once,
but was brought back by Mayor
Chris Bull, who missed the first
vote. It was then approved at
first reading and will go into
effect if approved at second
reading Tuesday.

nance requiring residents to fol-

the requirements.

Board chairman
downplays letter
from the DEP
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

The state is investigating dis-
charges of sewage and sewage
byproducts- from Key Largo's
wastewater treatment plant at
mile marker 100.5, according to
a May 10 letter from the
Department of Environmental
Protection to Key Largo sewer
commissioners.
Gary Bauman, chairman of
the Key Largo's Wastewater
Treatment District board, down-
played the letter, calling it "a his-
torical document that shows us
how we've improved month after
month," because the document
shows most incidences of dis-
charges decreasing from spring
2006 to the end of that year.
The latest violation occurred
in March this year,'when the
plant exceeded the 10 mil-
ligrams per liter of solid waste
by 4.5 milligrams.


Bauman blamed much of the
problem as being part of the
"tweaking phase" when the sys-
tem was in its "start-up stage."
He also laid some of the
blame with faulty filters
installed by the company that
built the 122,000-gallon-per-day
vacuum collection system and
wastewater treatment plant,
Jacksonville-based Haskell.
"We've has some small prob-
lems with some filters. Haskell
has not been responsive at this
point," Bauman said.
The sewer district has about
$500,000 it's withholding from
Haskell that it will use to
upgrade the filters, Bauman said.
That work will be done in-
house.
The DEP letter, signed by
Gus Rios, the environmental
administrator for the Keys,
states Key Largo's wastewater
district faces fines up to $10,000
a day if more violations are
found.
The village of Islamorada's
sewer system is also being
investigated by DEP.

Island's future to be decided Monday


Liveaboards
say they need
to, be in process
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Well over a dozen residents
comprising liveaboard boaters
and land-dwellers voiced and
at times shouted their opinions
of the potential annexation of
Wisteria Island at Tuesday's Key
West City Commission meeting.
Due to Mayor Morgan
McPherson and Commissioner
Mark Rossi's absence, commis-
sioners delayed voting on the
ordinance that would take the
island from unincorporated
Monroe County.
Commissioners had set a spe-
cial meeting to discuss it
Thursday, but that hag been
changed to 2 p.m. Monday at Old
City Hall. Commissioners will
also interview the six candidates
to replace retiring City Manager
Julio Avael.
As for Wisteria, better known
as Christmas Tree Island, "It
looks to me like an attempt to
railroad [the ordinance] through="
boater Scott Fraser said of the
sudden meeting change.
He believes it's possible that

Ke:- briefs


choosing an inconvenient meet-
ing time for people who work
during the day could be a strategy
to avoid residents' resistance.
But the City Clerk's Office
says it was simply a convenient
time to debate the ordinance,
given that all commissioners will
be present.
Ginny Stones represents FEB
Corpr, whose owner, the
Bernstein family, owns the
island. She said that without pass-
ing the annexation, the commis-
sion would have no control over
what happens to the island. FEB
is participating with developer
Ocean Properties in an effort to
see the voluntary annexation
through.
S"Do you want to control the
future of that island?" Stones
asked the commission.
The majority of speakers
Tuesday night were boaters
anchored near the island's shores.
Many were naysayers, though
others supported the annexation,
claiming that a certain population
of current anchored "residents" is
taking advantage.
"The bums, potheads and
worse that have populated the
island and surrounding anchor-
ages give the whole liveaboard
community a bad reputation,"
resident Mark Summers wrote in
a letter to the commission.
But Summers, who wrote he


has been a liveaboard-boater
since 1974, didn't completely soil
the concept of anchoring.
"The liveaboard vessel is a
viable form of affordable housing
and should be encouraged where
it can be properly and safely man-
aged."
Fraser, representing the
Society for the Preservation of
Mariners' Rights, said that when
the city annexed Tank Island -
now Sunset Key there were
strict anchorage laws implement-
ed.
Ocean Properties does have
tentative plans drawn up, accord-
ing to Commissioner Bill Verge.
He said he saw preliminary draw-
ings that include a yacht club
when he visited Vice President
Tom McMurrian's office.
But plans can't materialize
with the annexation pending,
according to Stones and
McMurrian, who agreed that
everything is preliminary at this
point.
"They don't want to talk to us
until we are part of the city,"
McMurrian said of the Planning
Department. "What's being
talked about is on scale with
Sunset Key maybe a little
less."
Sunset Key has 48 single-fam-
ily homes and 21 vacant lots.
Combined, they are assessed
$308,412.68 in annual taxes,
according to the county Tax
Collector's Office. It also has lux-


ury guest cottages and a restau-
rant.
City officials have said they
want Wisteria Island for the tax
revenue development .would
bring.
The manmade island was
piled into a landfill of about 21.5
acres of upland and 150 acres of
bay bottom surrounding the land
mass. It's inhabited with an abun-
dance of wildlife and is visible
from Mallory Square, about
2,200 feet northwest of Key
West.
McMurrian said the review for
the project would take from 12 to
18 months.

Cat-trapping program
delayed until June

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife
Service on Thursday said it's
delayed starting its program to
trap cats in the National Key
Deer Refuge until June 4.
The 60-day program was sup-
posed to start this Monday. The
agency gave no reason for the
delay.
Fish & Wildlife is trapping the
cats to further protect endangered
marsh rabbits; the agency says
feral cats attack the rabbits. No
trapping will be done on private
property or in commercial areas.
Trapped cats will be the Big
Pine Key Animal Shelter on 279
Industrial Drive. Cats that are
trapped including those that
are tagged, notched, tattooed or
microchipped can be retrieved
by their owners or adopted from
the shelter subject to county fees.

"Tavernier is a very special
place but there are not many [in
government] who can speak for
it," said Richard Barreto, a
director 6f the Tavernier
Community Association. "We
want to be that voice."
The TCA has been around
for decades but participation
has waned, President Jerry
Wilkinson said. "Some people
come to every meeting," he
said, "but there aren't as many
as we would like."
Members of the group meet
in open session at 1 p.m.
Sunday at the Masonic Lodge,
off U.S. 1 at mile marker 91.8
(behind Froggy's Fitness).
John Hammerstrom will
present the day's program,
"Rainwater Harvesting," on
ways to create functional cis-
terns or water-collection bar-
rels.
The association regularly
reviews community issues,
including proposals for land
development, affordable hous-
ing and sewer systems.

Recently, TCA members
worked to downsize an afford-
able-housing project planned
for the entrance to the Harry
Harry subdivision, Barreto said.
"There will be affordable
housing there but it should be
reasonable," Barreto said. "If
we had turned a blind eye [to
plans], it would have been a
monstrosity there."
.The association :also advo-
cated for improvements at the
-Tavernier Towne traffic signal,
which would leave plaza
patrons stranded in the drive-
way for long periods if they did
not stop in the precise spot to
trigger a signal change.
"It took two years to get it
done because there were a lot of
agencies involved but it finally
got done," Wilkinson said.
Tavernier was the first com-
munity in unincorporated
Monroe County to get a local
land-use plan created under the
Livable CommuniKeys pro-
gram, in large part because
TCA members helped push it
forward.
"Now that we have [the
plan], we need to make sure the
rules have teeth," Barreto said.
The TCA's traditional meet-
ing time on a Sunday could
change, Wilkinson said.
"Some people have other
things to do on Sunday," he
said. "And it would also be eas-
ier to get guest speakers on a
weeknight."

Island Joe's helping troops


Customers can
help keep it
flowing overseas
By RYAN McCARTHY
Keynoter Contributor

It is hard to find a good cup of
coffee, especially if you are an
U.S. soldier stationed on the front
lines in Afghanistan. Such was
the case for U.S. Army Sgt. 1st
Class Michael DiNicola of the A
Co. 1-285 ARB,.who some time


ago sent an e-mail to -Joe Wells,
founder and owner of Island Joe's
Coffee in Key West, asking if he
might send him some of Island
Joe's Deep Blue French Roast
coffee beans.
"The Army mess hall serves
horrible coffee here," DiNicola
wrote. "We have fallen in on a
coffee grinder, but have no beans
to grind. This would greatly
increase my morale and the
morale of my fellow soldiers."
Wells was more than happy to


oblige, and even got a surprise
phone call from a very apprecia-
tive DiNicola.
"Very seldom do I answer the
phone at our shop because I am
always roasting," Wells wrote on
his Web site, www.islandjoes
gourmetcoffee.com. "But for
some reason I was in my office
the other day, the phone rang and
I picked it up. They called me to
thank us for the coffee we sent. I
had goosebumps up and down
my body."

COFFEE / From 21

Eventually, Wells established
a link on the site through which
his online customers could con-
tribute, in increments of $5, to the
effort to send coffee overseas. He
was hesitant to go public with the
project, but wanted Keys resi-
dents to have the chance to pitch
in as well.
"I didn't go looking for pub-
licity or anything, but I thought
we can actually help people,"
Wells said. "What I do is pool the
money. Every time I get $40, I
send them 5 pounds of fresh
roasted coffee."
Wells says DiNicola has
become his partner of sorts with
this project and even goes in- on
his day off to make coffee for his
fellow soldiers. When Wells
asked DiNicola if he would be
able to help distribute the coffee
among the soldiers, he got an
unexpected response.


"We can handle it! I have bud-
dies in other forward operating
bases that I can put the coffee on
a helicopter and get it to them,"
DiNicola wrote. "That would
really lift their spirits! We've got
troops spread throughout this
entire country. They would
absolutely love to enjoy a pot of
your coffee."
Wells said that while he would
love to send coffee to the troops
every day, the important thing is
to do what they can as a small,
.family-owned business.
"I don't want to send them a
planeload of coffee, that's not the
point here," Wells said. "The
point is we're doing a little bit,
and they know we're doing a lit-
tle bit. We're a small, family-
owned business and we're draw-
ing on our customers to help us.
We're putting our heart and soul
into this and that's what we're
asking our customers to do."
DiNicola told Wells he would
send him a token of his apprecia-

tion.
"I'm going to put an American
flag [full size] inside one of our
Apache helicopters prior to the
mission and have it flown during
the mission," DiNicola wrote.
"After the mission, I am going to
produce a certificate presenting
the flag to you from all of us. The
flag will have actually flown in
combat, inside an Apache
Longbow Attack Helicopter."
Needless to say, Wells was
quite moved by the gesture.
"As far as I'm concerned,
when the flag comes it doesn't
belong to me, it belongs to every-
one that pitched in," he said.
"The flag belongs to the commu-
nity because the customers are

Island Joe's Coffee had its
beginnings roughly four years
ago at Wells' gas station in
Marathon. Unable to find a cup of
coffee to suit his taste, he began
experimenting with roasting his
own. Eventually, he began offer-
ing it to his customers.
Prior to moving to the Keys,
Wells worked as an investment
banker doing industry analysis
and felt if he offered a better
product, they would sell a lot
more of it. Island Joe's coffee
was a hit, and eventually led to
Wells establishing the Web site
about a year ago.
He and his family live in Key
West, where they now have a
small Southard Street shop offer-
ing coffee and specialty drinks.

Students on


world 'Odyssey'


Two teams from
Coral Shores head
to the World Finals
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

To show judges about the
mythical island of Adaromalsi, a
team of Coral Shores High
School students heads from the
Florida Keys to Michigan State
University this week.
Two six-member teams from
Coral Shores spend Wednesday
through May 26 at the Lansing,
Mich., campus to compete in the
prestigious Odyssey of the Mind
World Finals.
"These kids are smart and
they work hard," said Craig
Johnson, co-coach of one team.
"They have what it takes."
The Around the World in
Eight Minutes team is an all-
freshman squad and each
member has qualified for
Odyssey World Finals before.
They are Hannah .Porter,
Bradley Simonds, Casey
Lamorte, Seager Dixon, Sophia
Watkins and Andrea
Cockerham.


"Three of them will be going
for the third time," said Johnson,
coaching with his wife, Jane.
They used their eight-minute
program to showcase three loca-
tions a polar region, India and
a fictional underwater communi-
ty called Adaromalsi (read it'
backward), and took first place.
Props, costumes, presenta-
tions and the ability to think
quickly all are part of the com-
petition.
An older Coral Shores team
of Bo Idsardi, William
Harrelson, Anelise Cherubini,
Tyler Boban, Kara Wiecjorek
and Danse Mulvihill competed
in three problem groups at the
state finals. They qualified for
the World Finals with a second-
place spot in Tag 'Em, which
involves building a running a
small vehicle. Sandy Harrelson
and Deborah Cherubini are team
coaches.
Both Coral Shores teams won
an Omer Award, one of the high-
est honors at the state level.
"This isn't sports but a differ-
ent type of competition," said
Johnson, a school volunteer

He works as a services specialist
with the Florida Park Service.
"It's a creative activity that
the kids do themselves. It's both
thinking and hands-on. They
have to be spontaneous and do it
with style."
"We're very proud of our
teams," Coral Shores program
liaison David Waack said. "At
the World Competition, they will
compete with other first- and
second-place teams throughout
the United States, as well as 30
other countries."
More than 750 teams are
expected to compete as Odyssey
of the Mind marks its 28th year.
Activities at the World Finals
include social events, a creativi-
ty festival and a presentation
.from NASA, a major sponsor.


The Upper Keys Kiwanis donates $500 to help send the kids to
Michigan. Team coach Sandy Harrelson accepts a check
from Kiwanis President John Mullon.
To pay for the trip, students munity has given us tremendous
raised money from local busi- support," Johnson said. "We

Football Fins win spring game

Howard excels, W 7F
but some problems : -- ..
remain from '06 i *
By DAVID BALL --
dball@keynoter.com 6i II "' "


The Marathon High School
football team showed how depth
of players could help them in the
upcoming season, as the
Dolphins beat Pompano Beach,
14-6, in a spring scrimmage
Thursday.
However, some problems
that plagued the Dolphins early
last season showed up again at
Pompano, coach Lance Martin
said.
"We were moving the ball up
and down field easily, but not
getting any points out of it,"
Martin said. "We had a couple
turnovers.going in, and we had a
first and goal from the 2-yard
line and couldn't get it in."
The offense was led by run-
ning back Sergio Howard, who
produced 210 of the Dolphins'


Marathon running back Sergio Howard (right) springs for a large gain under blocking of David
Huntt (No. 59) and Josh Frank (No. 66) in the Dolphins' 14-6 win over Pompano Beach during a

"I am human," he said with a

"I do have other clothing."
Fraga, who will replace Judd
Wise, the athletic director the
past three years,- won out over
the two other applicants, girls'

Coral Shores' football
Hurricanes suit up Tuesday
for the Green-and-Gold
Game that closes spring prac-
tice.
The intra-squad scrim-
mage starts at 6:30 p.m. at the
Coral Shores field.
Game day was moved to
Tuesday because the original
May 23 date conflicts with
graduation-related events.
Spring drills, which start-
ed May 1, let coaches focus
on sport fundamentals before
regular preseason practice


opens in August.
Coach Todd Gideon said
the Canes plan to throw the
ball more in the fall season,
and needed to install more
pass-oriented formations.
Replacing a number of
linemen who will graduaLte
also was a major priority.
"We graduated a lot of our
size so we'll do some things
to take advantage of our
speed," Gideon said.
Coaches decided against
playing another team in a
spring jamboree.
"For where we are, we feel
like to need to have it in a
scrimmage rather than a
game situation so we can
have more control," Gideon
said.

hair, a faint mustache and an
easygoing nature, is a native Key
Wester to whom Conchs sport
tradition clings like a second
skin.
His father, Pedro, was athlet-
ic director in the early '80s and
also coached the baseball team
to a state title in 1984.
Peter Fraga was a senior
infielder for the Conchs in 1991
before going on to Florida State,
where he earned a bachelor's
degree in physical education and
a master's in educational leader-
ship.
At Key West, he has been a
health and phys-ed teacher. He
and his wife Becky have two
children, Bryce, 2, and 1-year-
old Maleah.
As athletic director, a position
that pays a $4,600 supplement,
Fraga will oversee 19 sports pro-
grams and embrace the difficult
task of trying to make every
coach happy.
"This was a perfect fit for
me," he said. "I got my master's
to go into administration, and
I'm in the administrative pool to
become an assistant principal.
This will be a stepping-stone to
that."
He believes he has the quali-
ties coveted in an athletic direc-
tor.
"I'm a people person, I'm
involved in the community, and I
feel I'm good at fund raising,"
he said. "I'm going to get
involved with business organiza-
tions and join the Rotary and the
Chamber of Commerce."
To spark interest in Key West
High sports, he envisions having
a vearlv children's snorts festival


at the school
track, with
each of the
sports repre-
sented at
booths and the
athletes in
their uni-
forms. "It will
be a good
FRAGA fund-raiser
and it will
give kids something to do," he
said.
While all Conch teams seek
to capture district and even
state titles, Fraga said his phi-
losophy doesn't revolve around
just winning.
"Being competitive is the big
emphasis," he said. "And teach-
ing life skills through sports. It's
important that kids learn them."
Baseball coach Miguel
Menendez said Fraga, a long-
time friend, will do what is best


for the athletes beyond the play-
ing venues.
"They couldn't have given
this to a better person,"
Menendez said. "He will be an
.effective athletic director
because he truly cares for Key
West High School. He'll make
sure the student-athletes' grades
are where they need to be to
have a chance to make it to col-
lege. And he'll make sure they
have signed up for the right core
classes to give them a chance."
Fraga, who will begin his
new job July 1, emphasized he is
not just a baseball guy. "I'm a
fan of all the sports," he said.
But he plans on remaining the
baseball team's first-base coach.
"I may have to miss practices
or a game here or there because
this job will be my No. 1 priori-
ty," said the ex-second baseman,
for whom pulling on a Key West
uniform will stay irresistible.

Defense stifles Pompano


SPRING / From 31

364 total yards on 20 carries. He
also scored a touchdown.
"Sergio looked good. Same
as usual," Martin said of his star
runner, who broke a string of
scoring records as a junior last
season. "In the first half, he was
trying to dance a little too much
and kept slipping on the grass."
Compact runner A.J.
Freeman added 74 yards on nine
carries and ran well behind good
blocking from Marathon's expe-
rienced offensive line, which
helped the Fins average 7 yards
per carry.
"When we do that, there's
not point in throwing the ball,"
said Martin, who led the Fins to
District 8-2B titles in 2003 and
2004 behind a consistent run-
ning attack.
Marathon scored on its sec-
ond series of the game on a 5-
yard run by Howard. The
Dolphins couldn't convert the
two-point attempt.
Quarterback Kenny White
orchestrated the plays for most
of the game, going 4-for-10
passing for 33 yards and a
touchdown.
Nyran Ross, younger brother


of last year's quarterback Adam
Ross, was 2-for-5 for 30 yards.
Martin said White is better run-
ning out of the bootleg, while
Ross is the more accurate pass-
er.
In the Dolphins' second
series of the second half,
Howard broke out for runs of 15
yards, 56 yards and 3 yards.
White finished the drive with a
6-yard touchdown-pass to Chris
Flingos.
The Marathon defense was
stifling, allowing only 142 yards
and one score by Pompano
Beach a 12-yard touchdown
pass resulting from a Marathon
turnover.
"Our whole defense played
really well," Martin said. "The
only two [Pompano Beach] got
loose, it was from busted plays."
Martin said he was able to
substitute in nearly all of his
reserve players in this year's
large 40-man squad. The depth
should be crucial for the
Dolphins' success this season as
they match up against much
larger schools from Central
Florida.
Marathon begins the 2007_
fall season at Pope John Paul on
Aug. 24. Marathon then hosts
Key West Aug. 31.

The Alexander Guest
House features the Key
West Burlesque troupe in
"La Provocateur," a night filled
with funky lounge grooves and
erotic performances, says a
press release that just rolled in.
The party happens Thursday
from 8 to midnight at 1118
Fleming St. in Key West.
DJ Ray will be spinning a
provocative funky lounge set
intermixed with live dance and
vocal performances by the Key
West Burlesque troupe.
Doors open at 8 p.m., cover
is $15 and live performances
begin at 9 p.m. Sip martinis at
the Pink Monkey Bar and view
the show poolside, or atop the
roof-deck. Everyone over 21 is
welcome to the dazzling pool-
side soiree to kick off summer.
SCall 433-0165 to make reser-
vations (space is limited) or
visit www.keywestburlesque

information.

cats and kittens yet, you're

The troupe stirred up a bit of
Southernmost controversy after
a bit of "slippage" embarrassed
some folks at the Tropic
Cinema last season, but hey,
isn't that the spirit of burlesque?
Didn't theatergoers of yester-
year, before today's entertain-
ment industry began leaving lit-
tle to the imagination, secretly
hope a dancer's feather fan
would fall?
Besides, if you catch a
glimpse of Paris Hilton at this

who are the utmost of real

Give Malbec a chance


Robust wines out
of Argentina a
hot market trend
Once known as a blending
grape used to create
classic Bordeaux-style
clarets (various blends of
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot,
CarmenEre, Malbec, Cabernet
franc and Petit Verdot), Malbec
has found a niche with wine

drinkers
who like a
full-bod-
ied,
intensely
flavored
red wine..
Malbecs
typically
deliver the
firm struc-
ture and
tannins of
a good
Cab along


with the slightly herbal nose
and flavor of a Merlot. Many
give you a touch of spiciness,
like that found in Syrahs.
Now relegated to the Cahors
region of France (east of
Bordeaux), where the wines are
called Auxerrois, Malbec is no
longer a major grape in the
French wine industry.
In California, Malbec is used
in "Meritage" blends and a few
brave souls are bottling 100
percent and blended Malbecs.
Fortunately for red wine


buffs, in 1868 a French agricul-
tural engineer named Michel
Pouget planted malbec vines in
Argentina. There, on the slopes
and foothills of the Andes,
Malbec has thrived and become
Argentina's premiere grape.
The Argentinean Malbecs
are very different from their
French ancestors.
The Auxerrois of Cahors are
"austere," hard and lacking in
fruit flavors. Usually a result of
excessive tannins or acid, these
austere Malbecs do not soften
over time. Rather, they main-
tain their tart, mineral-like aro-
mas and flavor even after
aging. This, by the way, in no
accident. Auxerrois are made
by traditionalists to serve the
traditional tastes of European
wine drinkers. Most Cahors
Malbecs are sold in France,
Germany, Switzerland and
Japan.
Argentinean Malbecs are
rich with fruit flavors. The
wines are less tannic and, so,
are "softer" on the palate. They
give you a burst of flavor up
front, then fade at the finish.
Malbecs are often blended with
a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon to
provide a more lasting taste
experience, that is, a stronger
finish to each -sip.


Malbecs from Argentina's
Mendoza viticulture area can
cost more that $100 a bottle.
But great Malbecs can be found
in the $15-plus category. The
lower priced Malbecs tend to
be a bit harder on the palate.
Sometimes great taste and
low price come together to cre-
ate an incredible value, my.per-
sonal "go buy it" list.
Familia Bianchi 2004
Malbec, about $15 to $20 retail.
The wine is deep purple with
an intense fruit aroma, hints of
ripe cherries, berries and plums.
It's a big, lush, slightly jammy
Malbec that fills your mouth
with flavor but doesn't jolt you
with tannins. The finish is long
(for a Malbec) and soft.
The Bianchi is great with
meats and hard cheeses, Cuban
pork and barbecue. If your local
wine shop doesn't have the
wine in stock, ask them to get it

distributed in South Florida.
Another great introduction

Sculptures Wirth seeing


Redbone Gallery
showing artist's
newest woodwork
Sculptor David Wirth looks
at the world through a dif-
ferent pair of eyes. Where
others may see a simple piece
of wood, he sees a tarpon leap-
ing out of the water or a sea-
horse floating peacefully along
a coral reef.
"When I'm looking at a log,
I'm actually looking for a fish,"
he said. "I'll look for animated
curved positions of the fish and
where the fins could come out.
I'm actually doing an anatomy
study right there. So when I
find that fish that's the tree
I'll take."
On May 26 at the Redbone
Gallery in Islamorada, mile
marker 81, Wirth will be fea-
tured at an artist's reception
from 6 to 9 p.m. The gallery
normally carries up to six of his
original works year round, but
for the reception weekend, it
will host an additional 20 wood
and bronze sculptures.
Wirth began sculpting more
than 14 years ago when he
came down with a severe case
of chicken pox at the age of 28.
Once he was released from the
hospital, he became inspired to
carve a rainbow trout from a
piece of oak using the only tool
he had at hand a filet knife.
"That's how I discovered
that I could do it," Wirth said.
"I just progressed from there,
completely self-taught, making
one piece at a time with little
hand tools and chisels. I slowly
graduated up into bigger pieces.
Now, I've got a huge workshop
and my pencil is a chainsaw."
Two years after he began
carving, his sculptures were
winning awards at fine art and
wildlife shows in California.
After leading a dual life as an
environmental engineer and an
artist, Wirth took a leap of faith
four years ago and quit his job
to devote all of his time to
sculpting. Now, he splits his
time between southern
California, Hawaii and Florida
following his passion of being
on and in the water searching
for subjects.
"When I'm in my Maui stu-
dio, I go snorkeling in the
morning or for a walk on the
beach, and I see turtles and reef


Sculptor David Wirth (left) shows his sculpture to Keys angling
legend Stu Apte. Islamorada's Redbone Gallery is holding an
artist's reception featuring several marine-life sculptures next
weekend, alongside the works of artists Harley Schmude,
Pasta Pantaleo, Don Ray and Tim Borski.


fish and all kinds of aquatic
life," he said. "Then I go work
in my studio for four or five
hours, and I'm still in the water
because I am making what I
just saw."
Instead of using photogra-
phy to record the different
marine life that he sees, Wirth
studies the creatures carefully
and tries to remember specific
parts that he finds striking.
"This week I caught a 45-
pound mahi mahi off of Maui,
and I was really looking at it in
detail," he explained. "It had
the biggest tail I've ever seen
on a mahi. It looked like a mar-
lin tail 22 inches across. It's
those kinds of things that I'll
try to recreate on my next
sculpture."
Wirth primarily uses indige-
nous hard woods from the areas
surrounding his studios. He uti-
lizes the grain lines and color
patterns within each tree. Some
of his favorites include olive,
black walnut and citrus. From
Hawaii, he prefers koa, monkey
pod, mango and macadamia.
Recently, he has started
experimenting with making
limited-edition bronzes. Wirth
utilizes a wet finish look, an
ultraviolet protected ink, which
makes the pieces glow with
brilliant jewel tones.
"The thing I love most about


working with bronze is that it
allows me to express animated
color," he said. "My wood
pieces are all natural colors, but
with bronze, I have a rainbow
of options that really gives the
piece life."
Gallery director Susan Ellis
said she and her husband are
excited to be showcasing
Wirth's works.
"David Wirth's expression
of marine life through his wood
sculptures adds a new dimen-
sion to the Redbone Gallery."
Other artists attending the
reception include Harley
Schmude, Pasta Pantaleo, Don
Ray and Tim Borski.
Refreshments will be. served,
and the event is free and open
to the public.

New book tells
about Florida's
top predators
By MICHAEL WELBER
L'Attitudes contributor

mericans love danger and
violent death. Witness the
popularity of TV shows
about sharks or crocodiles. Or
the fascination with police chas-
es that end in catastrophic crash-
es. And even the so-called funni -
est home videos programs fea-
ture mostly people getting
hurt.
Certainly television news pro-
ducers know this. Their mantra
has been "if it bleeds, it leads" as
the news programs kick off their
shows with automobile wrecks,
murders and fires.
Author Charles Sobczak
plays upon this fascination with
his new book "Alligators,
Sharks & Panthers." Starting
with Page 1, the book tells
story after story about children
getting dragged into the water
and devoured by alligators. Or
divers dying after losing limbs to

spectmens. Though
an experienced diver hel
took unnecessary chances by
staying down until nearly out of
air. Even worse, he neglected to
use a buoyancy compensator or
an air pressure gauge in order to
save money.
As a result of these tragic
mistakes and an encounter with
a shark, Covert lost his life. Yes,
his death was very controversial
with some observers thinking he
just stayed down too long.
However, his T-shirt was shred-
ded and he'd lost both arms,
probably in an encounter with a
bull shark. Monroe County
Sheriff's Office detectives con-
cluded, "We're very confident
this was a shark attack."
All of the stories in the book
take place in the Sunshine State.
Why Florida? Sobczak says he
studied statistics and found that
"Florida, with its beaches, sway-
ing palms, and theme parks led
the world in wild-animal attacks."
The book is full of stories,
many of them about innocent
people or ardent environmental-
ists who were at the wrong place
at the wrong time. First, Sobczak
builds our sympathy and then
tells how the person's life was
snuffed out. A young woman
who went for a midnight swim,

killed by an alligator. A young
man snatched off a riverbank by
another alligator.
So what animal is the most
dangerous predator of them all? Is
it the alligator that lies hidden in
ponds waiting for an unsuspecting
homeow.ncr to putter in their
\ard Or the -hark that is attract-
ed to s immers thrashing
about in shallow
%% waters? Or
how
about the
vanishing
Florida pan-
her?
Nope.
Sobczak con-
cludes that the
most dangerous
species living in
Florida is us,
human beings.
Need proof? From
t148 until 2005, 351
people were killed by
alligators in Florida.
Ho\ et er, in just one
ear 1929 humans
iau2chiered 190,000
gator,. He tells a similar
tale about the panther, virtu-
ally eliminated by the
encroachment of humans.
The author makes a strong
pitch for changing our ways.
While the slaughter of wild ani-
mals has diminished greatly, the
human presence in Florida has
driven many indigenous species
to extinction or nearly so. He
also makes a strong environmen-
tal pitch that is very timely.
Unfortunately, the book is
marred by a good deal of extra-
neous information that doesn't
relate to his main topic. There's
a chapter about hurricanes and
another about the dying reef in
the Keys. There's also a fair
amount of filler in the way of
historical information and bio-
logical descriptions.
However, the stories are fas-
cinating and, ultimately, sad.
Many people lost their lives
unnecessarily by underestimat-
ing the risks or by not taking the
proper precautions. We can only
hope that animals that are mere-
ly following their instincts don't
pay the price for our own human
stupidity.

Panthers: Deadly Encounters

Music venues ponder the bottom line


By DICK CONKLIN
L'Attitudes Contributor

Wen Cay Clubs Resorts
and Marinas
announced they were
cutting back last week, 80 full-
time workers lost their jobs. But
that decision was quickly fol-
lowed by another cost-saving
move dismissing musicians
and bands who perform at
Marathon Cay Club venues such
as Cabot's Restaurant, Sombrero
Cay Club, and the Tranquility
Bay Resort. According to a local
Cay Clubs manager, who asked
not to be named, their live music
lineup would be cancelled for at
least the next five or six weeks.
One Cay Clubs property in
Key Largo is keeping live musi-
cians on board: At the Pilot
House, it's Kim Bankston on
Saturday, Ted and Red on
Friday and karaoke on Sundays.
Cay Clubs recently got
approval to take over the leases
of the Half Shell Raw Bar and
Turtle Kralls in Key West, as
well as a purchase contract on
the A & B Lobster House and
Alonzo's Oyster House.
The Half Shell Raw Bar cur-
rently has live entertainment, but
when asked whether that would
change after the lease transfer,
management declined to com-
ment.
Several of the laid-off enter-
tainers are people who depend
on music gigs for their income,
unlike others who have day jobs
and play music on nights or
weekends.

Speaking out
Long-time Keys musician
Michael J was one of those
affected by the cutback. He said
he lost two regular gigs during
the same week. One was at Cay
Club's Sombrero Resort, where
he played poolside at the tiki bar.
Then he learned that he was los-
ing another long-time gig at the
Holiday Inn, where Michael J
and Friends have been jamming
at the tiki bar on weekends for
years. Management told him that
the Holiday Inn was changing to
a Holiday Inn Express format
and would be closing for demoli-
tion and reconstruction.
Another local musician told a
similar story. After losing two of
his regular gigs, he was out look-
ing for a day job.
Singer/guitarist Adrienne also
got the axe.


"The new manager of Cabot's
told me yesterday that they are
stopping all the entertainment at
Cay Clubs," she said. "Who
knows why? I didn't get any
explanation, and didn't ask. He
did tell me that they will be put-
ting music back on in the fall
several nights a week, so at least
we have that to look forward to.
I heard.things will be picking up
after Memorial Day. I hope so!"
Singer Vanessa Di Gennaro
lost three nights of work from
the Cay Clubs decision -
Wednesday nights at Tranquility
Bay's Butterfly Caf6 and Friday
and Saturday nights at Cabot's.
"I'm disappointed," she said,
"but I'm not taking it personally.
Actually I hope to work with
these folks again in the future.
This break will give me more
time to prepare for my upcoming
concert [at Key West's Mallory
Square on July 7]."
While all three musicians
admitted that the onset of the
"off-season" often brought on a
reduction in bookings, they also
felt strongly that musicians -
most of the time, anyway pay
their own way in terms of attract-
ing a larger audience. Many
music fans follow their favorites
from one venue to the next, buy-
ing drinks and meals that
increase an evening's revenue
and help pay for the entertain-
ment. When the entertainment is
gone, they simply go somewhere
else.
In speaking to several live
music venues from Key Largo to
Key West, L'Attitudes was told
that many of them were deter-


mined to keep their current line-
ups as long as they could afford
them. Some cut costs by replac-
ing full bands with solo perform-
ers, karaoke, or DJs.

The bottom line
"Coconuts Restaurant and
Club currently offers live music
seven days and nights a week,"
said manager Charles Mountain,
"and we will continue for the
next couple of months."
At that point, he plans to
reduce the entertainment "to
roughly five days and nights."
He feels that his Key Largo
nightclub, which has been oper-
ating for more than 20 years,
depends on music for its success.
"Live entertainment has always
been fundamental to our opera-
tion."
"There are often outside fac-
tors," Mountain admitted, "but it
remains our belief that, while
expensive, the payoff is a worth-
while and positive result, espe-
cially when watching the reac-
tions of our guests, each and
every time."
Just down the road in
Islamorada, the Hog Heaven
sports bar and restaurant also
plans to maintain the status quo.
"We plan to continue our
weekend gigs, and do more out-
side," said Ryan Crockett, the
Hog's general manager. The
hard-rocking Regs, a new group
called Stalking Mildred, and on
some nights a disk jockey, keep
the patrons happy. "We would
also like to start a beach party on
Sunday out back, from 6 to 10
featuring calypso and reggae
music."

Local film company begins shoot


Producers shine
lights on Keys
for new thriller
By CLAUDIA MILLER
L'Attitudes contributor


eey Largo-based Coral
Reef Productions will be
turning its cameras on
the Upper Keys Monday as
they begin shooting a feature
film called "Shining Water."
The first in a series of five
films that will be shot over the
next five years in the Keys,


DE FgANCE


"Shining Water" is a psycho-
logical thriller in the vein of
"Dead Calm." The plot features
two cousins who come to
Florida to spread their grandfa-
ther's ashes at sea. When they
accept an invitation to take a
trip on a yacht, the women dis-
cover evidence of a murder on
board and become trapped at
sea by the killer.
A large portion of the film
will be shot on board of a boat
while it is docked at Horizon
Divers in Key Largo as well as
out on the water. Other shoot-
ing locations include Holiday
Isle, Card Sound Road and var-
ious underwater wrecks. "In
each of our five movies there
will be a lot of diving, boat and
on the water sailing scenes,"
co-producer George Alfano
said. "We want our movies to
be a spectacle capturing the
natural beauty and splendor of
the Florida Keys."
In their next film, Alfano
said he and his co-producer will
be introducing two new charac-
ters who will be featured in the
rest of the movies. These films

"This couple will be dia-

"This film has gone far

Although no locals have
been cast in the film, Alfano
hopes to use local talent for

'Artland: USA'


visits Keys


TV series kicks
off season in
Southernmost City

Fr rom the sizzling sands of
Miami to the dramatic
designs of the Central West
Coast, Florida is a hotbed for
Modem Art.
As a result, the television
series "Artland: USA" has hand-
picked the Sunshine State as the
kickoff point for its second sea-
son as it embarks on a three-
month trek of art discovery with
hosts Mame McCutchin and
Toby Amies.
This summer, the show will
again cross the nation to record
great American art landmarks,
from renowned museums and
offbeat roadside art-tractions to
accomplished living artists and
unique architecture.
" The series begins at the tip of
Key West, capturing the Mile
Marker 0 sign and then an aerial
shot of the Seven Mile Bridge
near Marathon, and then heads
to Miami to relish in Art Deco
design and sandcastle sculptures
by Victor Leong. In this episode,
McCutchin and Amies speak to
some of Miami's most esteemed
collectors, Richard and Ruth


Shack, and painter Pervis Young.
For those who like their art
on four wheels, the show will
present Custom Car Hot Rod Art
and artists from Daytona Beach
before profiling Sarasota School
of Architecture and the buildings
of Paul Rudolph.
McCutchin and Amies were
in the Keys and in Miami from
April 26 to May 1, traveling in
their Jackson Pollock-inspired
Winnebago/HDTV production
studio.
From here, the hosts will visit
San Francisco's MoMA and the
haunting walls of Alcatraz;
Texas's Cathedral of Junk and
Toilet Seat Museum and the
"World's Most Beautiful
Rollercoaster"; from Portland's.
Museum of Velvet Paintings to
South Dakota's Giant Walking
Dinosaur.
VOOM's Gallery HD
Network, the first and only tele-
vision network exclusively dedi-
cated to the visual arts, will air
the entire journey. New, one-
hour episodes will premiere
weekly in October. Season One
episodes are currently on air.
VOOM TV is available on
Dish Networks.

Entertainment: 'two-fold issue'


MUSIC / From 7

some special acts, like the Red
Elvises [on Monday June 4], we
will carry them."
On Boot Key Harbor,
Dockside owner Lance Becker
agreed. "Yes, we are keeping
music all week long through the
summer." -
His general manager Bruce
Becker (no relation) emphasized
their year-round live music poli-
cy, "that's weather permitting -
and I am not saying the 'H'
word!"
"The way I look at entertain-
ment is this it's a two-fold
issue. We the bar try to bring the
customers in, but it's the enter-
tainment's job to keep them
there. Yes, certain bands have a
following, but most times it will
not change the bottom line,"
Bruce Becker said. "There is the
fellowship between entertainers
and us and we like to see every-
one working. We are currently
looking at many avenues, such
as afternoon shows, concerts in
the park, and fundraisers to pro-
mote local entertainment."
In answer to a frequent ques-
tion about the status of the
Dockside's once-weekly Sunday
Jam, he said, "Yes, the Florida
Straits will be here a couple of
times a month."
At Porky's BBQ on the bay-
side, Barbara and Johnny
Maddox are also determined to
keep their seven-nights-a-week
entertainment lineup.
"We don't cut back on our
entertainment during the off-sea-
son," Barbara said. "Nor do we


close down for a month like a lot
of places. The musicians who
perform here are very talented.
Having entertainment seven
nights a week during the off-sea-
son seems to pay off for us. We
work the schedule around keep-
ing our staff employed. I think
consistency is the key to a suc-
cessful business. If the locals
know you have great food and
entertainment seven nights a
week, they will come to your
place before going out to.a juke-
box somewhere."
"If the musicians take care of
your customers and work well
with you, and they make good
money in season, it makes sense
to take care of them in the off-
season," she said. "At least that's
the way we count the beans here
at Porky's."
Said Johnny, "The only per-
former in Marathon who draws a
crowd large enough to pay for
himself is the Rocketman. He is
the only real entertainer in town.
I call it showmanship.
Sometimes you'll see three gen-
erations of Rocketman fans
come to hear his tunes, buy a
CD, and take a picture."
"When the snowbirds fly
north, we still get plenty of
Florida residents and our great
local customers, who enjoy an
evening of BBQ and good
music," he said. "We don't want
to disappoint them."
Down on Little Torch Key,
management of the Parrotdise
Waterfront Restaurant plans on
keeping its three-night live music
schedule. According to owner
Keb Leeman, "The big change is
that we are now closed on


Monday and Tuesdays. We are
a restaurant first, with a nice
waterfront view and the music is
always in the background. On
occasion, when CW Colt is com-
ing through, he will play an
evening with us and he is a draw.
Otherwise, for dining, it does not
seemr to have a big effect."
John Vagnoni, manager of
Key West's Green Parrot Bar,
says the bar's summer schedule
has been scaled back to just
Friday and Saturday nights with
sound checks a preview of
late-night entertainment at
5:50.
"However, if there is a per-
former or band who is only
available during the week and
we don't want to pass up on
them because they are only
down here once a year or they
have a very strong local follow-
ing, we will consider adding a
weeknight gig as a special serv-
ice to our local patrons."
Linda Krieg at the popular
Schooner Wharf Bar says the
summer season has little effect
on the establishment.
"We go strong all summer,
with the usual daily and nightly
music. Bands will vary, of
course, but we always have live
music," she said.
Charlie Bauer at the Hog's
Breath Saloon says his staff is
"playing it month by month right
now." He feels it's getting harder
to hire a band and break even,
since "you can't charge a cover
charge in Key West."
