Manager



Puto in



hot seat


Council members
say he's losing
their support
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

Marathon City Manager
Mike Puto said it's clear he may
Tiot have enough support to con-
tinue as the city's top adminis-
trator, and is preparing for what-
ever decision the City Council
may eventually make.
"I can't stress it enough that
the council has been kind, and
not one of the five have come to
me and said they want me
gone," Puto said Tuesday. "But
if I read between the lines, I do
have a feeling they want to go in
a different direction."
When polled Tuesday, none


of the council members said they
are ready to support firing Puto
if a vote is taken in the near
future.
However, Councilman Pete
Worthington said such a vote
might come sooner than later.
"I've been pressured [by resi-
dents] lately to bring it up for
discussion, and I've been putting
it off," Worthington said. "I
haven't heard it from anybody
out there that Mike is doing a
great job. I have been hearing a
lot from the other side, though."
Worthington said he and
many residents are unhappy
with Puto's management style,
his apparent slow progress com-
pleting tasks and lack of over-
sight of city contracts.

The 2007 Memorial Day
weekend wasn't nearly as deadly
as in 2006, although the Keys
saw.their fare share of holiday
accidents and arrests this week-
end, according to reports.
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission offi-
cer Bob Dube said 20-knot winds
didn't stop many boaters- from
converging at the Sandbar off
Islamorada, where some 1,500
vessels gathered during peak
hours Sunday afternoon.
"That's a Catch-22. The wind
helped us in a way" by keeping
boaters from going offshore,
Dube said. "But people who were
going to go out and fish just
ended up hanging out at the
Sandbar."
Dube said the wind also made
it difficult for the eight FWC offi-
cers and others from the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office and U.S.
Coast Guard to board the 46
boats stopped in'Whale Harbor
Channel. Seventy boats were
stopped throughout the Keys.


The Sheriff's Office reported
only two arrests for boating
under the influence through the
weekend.
But one 36-foot boat was
stopped for transporting 35 people.
"There were no fights or big
riots as we've had in the past,"
Dube said. "We had a couple of
boating accidents, but no injuries.
I think we got lucky this year."
Last year, a 6-year-old was
killed in a boating accident off
Key West, and a car collision on
U.S. 1 just south of Florida City
killed three and severely injured
two others.
Although no fatalities
occurred this weekend, law offi-
cials were kept busy with 30
accidents and 16 drunk-driving
arrests between Friday and
Monday, according to reports.
The worst collisions occurred
Sunday, when at 4:48 a.m. a
pickup pulling a pontoon boat
reportedly collided with another
pickup near mile marker 114,
injuring one person. U.S. 1 was
closed and traffic was diverted


onto Card Sound Road until 7:30
a.m.
At 5:11 p.m., an accident near
mile marker 39 injured two and
blocked southbound .traffic until
6 p.m.
As visitors headed back to the
mainland Monday, drawbridge
openings at the Snake Creek
Bridge at mile marker 85.5
caused northbound traffic to back
up nearly 20 miles.
Northbound cars came to a
halt from midday to mid-after-
noon around Long Key State
Park at mile marker 67.
The heavy traffic mirrored a
busy weekend at Upper Keys
hotels, according to Key Largo
Chamber of Commerce
Administrator Gladys Comell.
"We checked on Wednesday
to see availability" of rooms,
Cornell said. "Most of them were
pretty full. There were not a
whole lot of openings left. Just
based on the traffic, I'd say we
were pretty busy."

Senior Staff Writer Kevin
Wadlow contributed to this
-report.


Council critiquing Puto's performance


PUTO / From 1

In March, Worthington initi-
ated a review of $461,0)00 in
Gonzalez Landscaping contracts
Puto approved. Although first
defended by the city attorney
and finance director, Puto later
admitted the error of approving a
$137,000 payment without
council approval.
Worthington said that error is
"just the. tip of the iceberg."
"I hate to say it, because
Mike's a great guy,"
Worthington said, "but I'm los-
ing confidence in him managing
the city and moving the city for-
ward in a lot of issues."
Councilman Don Vasil said
the same public sentiment for
change that got him and
Councilman Mike Cinque elect-
ed in March is carrying over to
city management.
"There is a feeling from what
I'm gathering on a good part of
the public that the change is not
going to take place unless there
is some management changes at
City Hall," said Vasil, who
recently expressed frustration


over the city's lack of holding
developers accountable for
promises of affordable housing.
Cinque wouldn't comment on
Puto's performance, but said
some change is inevitable.
"Everything needs change from
time to time," he said.
Puto, a Marathon native, was
hired as city community services
director in 2003. He was
appointed interim city manager
in 2004 after then-manager Scott
Janke resigned.
After a nationwide search for
a new manager, the council
appointed Puto in October 2004
with a $95,000 salary. That
increased to $100,000 after six
months and now stands at
$105,000.
Islamorada Village Manager
Gary Word earns $147,000 and
incoming Key West City
Manager Jim Scholl will earn
between $165,000 and $200,000
depending on negotiations.
Mayor Chris Bull said Puto's
can-do personality made him a
popular choice when appointed,
but his lack of city management
could be a hindrance.
"There's no doubt that in his


heart, all the decisions he makes
he's doing what is in the best
interest of Marathon," Bull said.
"But I think when you have an
election where you have people
asking for change, everything is
on the table."
Vice Mayor Marilyn Tempest
said she'd much rather see Puto
correct some of his deficiencies
and remain as city manager if he
still wants to.
"I've talked with him about
it, about how he feels," Tempest
said. "I really think there may be
some other things that he may
want to do. You know how inter-
ested he is in emergency man-
agement."
Puto said he has not spoken
with any county or other Keys
officials about other job oppor-
tunities, but said he would begin
such talks should it appear the
council wants him out.
S"I'm not a fighter when it
comes to that. If there is going to
be a transition, I would make
sure it's good for the city," Puto
said. "I plan to sit down with the
council and see where we want
to go from here, but I'm ready to
keep working for Marathon."

Charge dropped
against deputy

A Monroe County Sheriff's
Office corrections deputy was
charged Monday with battery
but the charge was dropped
Tuesday after further investi-
gation revealed it was not war-
ranted, agency officials said.
According to the agency,
Debra Brown, 45, got into an
argument with her son, who
wanted to take the family auto
out. But she wouldn't let him


because he had been drinking,
family members said in a
statement to deputies.
Further argument ensued
and both Brown and her
daughter hit the son with a
"flicking motion" on the head.
The daughter was charged
along with Brown.
Deputy Becky Herrin said
investigation revealed those
"flicks" did not warrant
charges. And the report notes
the son did not want his moth-

Lawyers: Judge reverses takings case


Audlin tosses
Payne's decision,
appeal is vowed
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Monroe County taxpayers
might not be faced with an esti-
mated $7 million in potential
damages following a ruling in
favor of the county and state in a
long-standing case in which 10
property owners accused the
government of wrongfully tak-
ing their land.
"This is a victory for the tax-
payers," Assistant County
Attorney Bob Shillinger said.
Monroe County Circuit Court
Judge David "Audlin says he's
dismissing the case."
Shillinger said he received a
call from Audlin's chambers
Friday canceling a Tuesday pre-
trial conference on the case of
Collins et al versus Monroe
County because the judge has
granted the county's and state's
summary judgments in the case.
Specifics of why Audlin over-
turned then-Circuit Court Judge
Richard Payne were not avail-
able Tuesday, but both Shillinger
and Key Largo attorney Jim


Mattson said they were informed
of the decision.
The so-called Collins case
dates back to 2004, when sever-
al property owners sued the
county alleging they were ille-
gally prevented from developing
their land and not offered ade-
quate compensation for their
parcels. The state was later
added to the suit.
Those landowners are likely
not rejoicing, though their attor-
ney, Mattson, said he would
appeal.
"These property owners went
through the county's beneficial-
use process," Mattson said. "The
county took from five to seven
years to render a decision, and it
decided on all of them that they
are entitled to just compensa-
tion."
But none have been compen-
sated, he said.
"We've been debating these
legal issues for a long time,"
Mattson said. "There's never
been any question but what
somebody was going to appeal."
In November, the now-retired
Payne ruled against the state and
county, denying several efforts at
summary judgments each
requested against the landown-

ers. In granting the summary
judgments, Shillinger says
Audlin is overturning Payne's
denial.
Takings cases like this come
in two phases, Mattson said: A
bench trial is held to determine
liability, followed by a jury trial
to set damages.
Audlin was slated to begin
the first phase June 18. Him

ing to both attorneys.
"Nobody in government
wants to pay for stealing peo-
ple's land," Mattson said, adding
the county came close to settling
with one of his clients, but it fell
through.
For years, Monroe County
has walked a thin line between
conserving environmentally sen-
sitive land and honoring proper-
ty rights.
In 2002, the county settled


out of court a takings case that
had the potential to cost upward
of $50 million. That case, know
as the Shadek case, cost taxpay-
ers $6 million.
Last June, the courts awarded
$3 million to the Schlue family
after years of litigation for
stalled development on the 10.5-
acre Galleon Bay parcel on No
Name Key. The county has
appealed and Mattson has
motioned for a new trial.

Keys conserve but

more needs to be done

Unless Mother Nature intervenes, we are likely to see a dan-
gerous record broken sometime today when Lake Okeechobee
drops to its lowest level ever recorded.
Despite showers that have helped most of the coastal coun-
ties in South Florida, water levels in the lake continued to drop
over the weekend, by as much as a half-inch per day.
The threshold to break the record, as noted in Tuesday's
Miami Herald, is 8.97 feet, a drought-condition low-water
mark reached May 24, 2001.
Most Keys residents who were around six years ago remem-
ber that drought and the water restrictions that evdnt triggered
- the worst drought since the 1930s.
Well, guess what? It could get worse, much worse.
Typically about this time of year, seasonal storms sweep in
from the Gulf, bringing welcome rainfall that recharges our
surface and underground water supply.
Lake Okeechobee is the most obvious of those vital reser-
voirs. Covering 730 square miles, it is the only feature on the
Florida peninsula visible from space.
S"Lake Okeechobee is the backup water supply for more than
five million people," notes Julie Huber, a spokeswoman for the
South Florida Water Management District quoted in Tuesday's
Herald.
"If we don't get rain, and quickly," she warned, "it will affect
our water supply."
Actually, warnings about this drought cycle began last fall
when summer storms in 2006 didn't replenish lost reserves.
Instead of the normal 60 to 65 inches of rainfall during our
tropical storm season, most of South Florida had just over 37
inches a 20 percent drop.
By March of this year, Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority offi-
cials noted further deterioration in backup reserves for Lake
Okeechobee and forecast additional restrictions on water use.
We're now into the third month of those Phase 2 cutbacks
and those efforts may not be enough.
Here in the Keys, water use has dropped by about 16 percent
overall when compared to the same period last year.
The next stage if it comes will ratchet that up to a 30
percent reduction in water use.
So while the recent rains helped recharge the south Miami-
Dade well fields where Monroe gets its drinking water, we're
part of a far larger problem facing the entire region.
You can do your part by cutting back now on such things was
"washing cars, holding laundry for full loads only, and turning
off the taps to brush your teeth or shave. Quick showers are a
good habit to have, and not just during droughts.

Foreign aid isn't giving the U.S. anything


EDITOR:
The words "foreign aid" have never set very
well with me.
Years ago, Barry Goldwater, senator from
Arizona, said foreign aid is when we send
farmers with seed and tractors to another coun-
try and teach.them how to sustain themselves.
An article in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel on
March 24 states President Bush and Hugo
Chavez of Venezuela are in a duel for the
amount of aid given to Latin America.
We have poured billions of dollars in aid
into Latin America over the years and most of
the people in these countries are still at or
below the poverty level. So what does our gift
of cash do? Does it plant crops, build factories,
teach technology or maybe furnish a lavish
lifestyle for government officials and their fam-
ilies?
We, the taxpayers who put up those huge
sums in foreign aid, never hear what our money
did in the form of assistance. Most of the coun-
tries we send big dollars to still vote against us


at the United Nations. We even send millions to
Chavez and Venezuela. What kind of game is
this where we continue to help those who can't
or won't help themselves?
The same staff writer for the Sun-Sentinel
who wrote the Bush-Chavez dueling article had
just written another article about immigrants
from Latin America living in this country will
send 72 billion in American dollars back to
Latin America this year. I would guess we
could still consider much of that as foreign aid.
A good percentage of that money wasn't
taxed and the cost to American citizens in bene-
fits to illegal immigrants should be considered
as foreign aid. Like so many government spend-
ing programs, I think our foreign aid program is
broken and needs fixing but I don't hear any
politicians on either side talking about it.
I wrote to Sen. Mel Martinez, Sen. Bill
Nelson and U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen
about this, but they never answer.

Mayor's task force oversteps bounds


EDITOR:
Monroe County Mayor Mario Di Gennaro's
county task force formed to bring Monroe
County's issues before the Cabinet in Tallahassee
now has a track record, mostly off track.
The task force was formed by the mayor to
explore the hot issues of the day and gain support
for communication, understanding and direction
to solve county problems. The most powerful
argument the public put forth was that we have
an elected representative in the state Capitol and
should work through him. This has been very
productive in the past.
Another objection by the taxpayers is the cost
of sending this entourage to Tallahassee. The first
trip to Tallahassee by the task force was a disas-
ter with a member of the team, Administrator
Tom Willi, saying we have an 18.1-hour evacua-
tion time in the land-use plan. It was a not-so-
hidden attempt to secure building permits from
the state.
The other statement was that-we are on track
for the Lower Keys sewage system and digging

Scholl should earn his due
EDITOR:
How can Key West officials complain about
where to find funds if the state cuts property
taxes when the city is hiring a new city manager
for $22,000 to $57,000 more than current
Manager Julio Avael is currently making?
Especially when the incoming manager, Jim
Scholl was happy making $100,000 and has
admittedly said, "I have a lot to learn."
Why not start him at $100,000 and give him
raises as he learns? It makes no sense to give a
new employee a starting salary that much higher
than what is currently paid to Mr. Avael with
years of service under his belt.
Unbelievable.

dirt. Both statements to the governor proved false.
The next effort to communicate by the task
force with the legislature was through Mike
Davis, state representative from Naples. The
group consisted of the mayor of Key West,
SMa' r Di Gennaro and Jerry Coleman, afford-
able-housing consultant. The group proposed a 1-
cent tourist tax for affordable housing.
The public was unaware the County
Commisun was not informed. The Tourist
Development Council, the agency from which
the 1-cent tax would be extracted, was totally
surprised. Finally, our elected representative Ron
Saunders was not informed.
This seems like a strange way for the tas'
force to gain support from the Cabinet. It looks
like stealth government and government in the
shadows to the public. The citizens are waiting to
see what the next effort by the task force will be.

City should hang its head in shame


EDITOR:
Shame on the city of Marathon.
The end to the Chaplin family's
dream to build a showcase restau-
rant at the base of the Seven Mile
Bridge is a perfect example of gov-
ernment at its worst.
For eight long years, they fought
the good fight to give Marathon a
restaurant that would have been a
draw to tourist and locals. Time
after time, they agreed to stipula-
tions and demands, many of them
ridiculous, only to find that no mat-
ter what they agreed to (swimming
pool, fences, etc.), there was always
something else the city demanded
before t hy would be allowed to
build.
Others would have given up
years ago because certainly selling
the property to a developer makes
better financial sense. But the
Chaplins persevered because they
had a dream to give back something
wonderful to the island they love.
Watch City Council meetings and
you'll hear a lot of talk about work-
force housing and beautifying
Overseas Highway, our Main Street.
But I guess all the talk is empty
political bull because when it had
the opportunity to walk the walk,
when push came to shove, the City
Council shoved it.


And since the Chaplins are locals
who actually care about Marathon
and appreciate the problem of work-
force housing, they actually would
have done more than talk about
workforce housing; they would have
fulfilled their commitment to build
it. But even that commitment wasn't
enough for the city.
So now, instead of a beautiful
showcase restaurant/attraction that
would have been worthy of note in
travel guides, Marathon will get
another hotel or condominium.
I think the blase attitude of some
council members to the fact that the
Chaplins finally were forced to give
up their dream is appalling. Shame
on the city of Marathon.

More boat monitoring possible


Coast Guard
is looking at
security threats
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Measures to tighten maritime
security should not place an
excessive burden on recreational
boaters, boating industry officials
said this week.
Specifically, boating represen-
tatives do riot want to see the U.S.
Coast Guard move toward requir-
ing recreational boat-operator
licenses or forcing boats to install
electronic monitoringdevices.
"In recent months, proposals
to license boat owners or require
them to outfit their vessels with
expensive electronic tracking
gear have been floated," accord-
ing to BoatU.S., a recreational
group representing 670,000
members.
Those types of issues will be.
discussed June 19 and 20 when
the U.S. Department of
Homeland Security convenes the
National Small Vessel Security


Summit.
"Recreational boaters want to
be part of a comprehensive solu-
tion to this [terrorism] threat, but
any new requirements must be
measured in terms of both effec-
tiveness and efficiency," said
Michael Sciulla of BoatU.S.
"There are a lot of ideas float-
ing around out there, but the
question is how to do it realisti-
cally," said Duncan Neasham,
public affairs manager for the
National Marine Manufacturers
Association.
The Small Vessel Security
Summit will take place in
Arlington, Va., "to discuss con-
cerns and issues posed by small
vessels being used by terrorists in
the maritime domain of the
United States," according to
meeting information. The ses-
sion is limited to invited guests.
"We're going in with an open
mind," said Neasham. "Like any-
one else, we want to see our
waterways and coasts protected.
But our goal is to air our concerns
and educate [government offi-
cials] about the recreational boat-
ing population."


SMarathon Boat Yard owner
Bruce Popham said he is con-
cerned about possible regulation
but will rely on national boating
organizations with a Washington,
D.C., presence to speak for pri-
vate boaters.
"I know the industry is aware
of what's going on and will be-
actively involved," Popham said.
Coast Guard officials have
voiced interest in some system
that would track all boats on the
water. They frequently cite the
use of a small boat, laden with
explosives, in the deadly attack
on the U.S. Navy ship USS Cole
at a Middle East port.
Federal agencies have started
requiring some commercial fish-
ing boats to install vessel moni-
torihg devices to track the boats'
movements around offshore no-
fishing zones
Boating groups are concerned
the government may get ahead of
itself with the technology avail-
able today.
"There is always the concern
that good people with good inten-
tions don't always produce good
policy," Neasham said. "Unless
you have all sides working togeth-
er, you don't get good policy."

An electronic marking system
for the 13 million registered
boats in the U.S. may be imprac-

"Some of these identification
systems have huge costs and

said. "They're expensive enough
for the commercial industry."
"Requiring millions of recre-
ational boat owners to be

Budget main topic


of county workshop


Deadlines near
as Legislature
makes changes
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Monroe County commission-
ers are free to bring up any sub-
ject they want at next week's
monthly commission workshop,
but the discussion will likely
center on the county budget.
"We have to be prepared for
the worst," Comniissioner Dixie
Spehar said. "There's no way for
us to know at this point so we
have to have things pared down
as much as we possibly can."
The commission convenes
June 6 at 10 a.m. at the Harvey
Government Center in Key
West. The open-ended agenda
sets aside time for a presentation
for the Florida Council for
People with Disabilities and a
discussion of the county's capi-
tal plan.
"There are things like the
Murray E. Nelson Center [in
Key Largo], our capital projects,
roads and bridges, that could
desperately be affected," Spehar
said.
County budget staffers face a
tough budget session in light of
the Florida Legislature's prom-
ise to impose some sort of prop-
erty-tax reform during its special
session beginning June 12.
"We have a very short win-
dow of time in which to prepare
a budget," Spehar said. "And
we've got to be prepared for a
worst-case scenario."
Thursday is the last day for
many county departments to
submit their 2007-08 budget
requests to the county's budget


office. That office has until July
12 to craft those requests into an
overall budget proposal for the
County Commission.
The county's 2006-07 budget
is built on $83.8 million in prop-
erty taxes. Legislators, during
their regular session, recom-
mended a number of relief pack-
ages that would lower local
property-tax collections, a move
that could cost local govern-
ments millions in revenue.
The county's TraumaStar
service, a helicopter emergency
transport for the Middle and
Lower Keys, is one place the
county could cut, says
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy.
"That's one place we can cut
without hurting the community,"
she said, "since we already have
service to those areas."
Murphy says companies that
filled in while the county service
was between birds last year can
continue to provide service at a
lower cost to the county.
"The things that make life
better, bearable for children, the
elderly, those are important to
keep," Murphy said.'"The things
that involve bricks, mortar,
paper, machines, those can go.
You can make do."
Health and human services
are on the table, Spehar says,
despite a non-binding resolution
by the commission in February
to fund the services at the same
level they are in the current
budget year.
The Human Services
Advisory Board asked the com-
mission for the- $2.3 million
commitment early in the budget
process because much of the
nonprofits' funding relies on
matching grants.

House revisits issue


OIL / From I

would carry the pollutants right
up the reef line.
"Any accidental spills would
be devastating.... Our beaches,
mangroves and coral reefs would
be directly impacted if the mora-
torium effort fails."
In early 2006, Congress
passed a measure to allow long-
stalled plans to drill in the 181
lease area, which lies 100 miles
south of Pensacola and nearly
300 miles west of Tampa.
Most of Florida's congres-
sional representatives supported
opening Lease Area 181 as a
tradeoff for guaranteeing that no
drilling will take place within 125
miles of the state's western coast.
"It was a really bad political
climate and Congress was under
a lot of pressure," Quirolo said.
"Now we have a new Congress.
We may be able to take some
ground back."
Reef Relief, the Sierra Club
and other conservation groups in
the Outer Continental Shelf
Coalition are pushing to restore
the moratorium on drilling Lease
Area 181.
Now, the Appropriations
Committee of the U.S. House of
Representatives is scheduled to
review the budget for the U.S.
Department of the Interior, prob-
ably within several days.
A Congress now controlled by
Democrats could remove funding
from the Interior budget that is
needed to undertake the lease
sale, Quirolo said.
"There are very good reasons

that these areas have not been
developed for a very long time,"
she said. "The risk to critical
ecosystems is more than the oil or
natural gas that could be drawn
from this area is worth."
Lease Area 181 would be the
first sale of drilling rights in the
eastern Gulf of Mexico.
U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen voted against the 2006
legislation, saying that opening
the millions of acres in the east-
ern gulf would jeopardize
Florida's economy and environ-
ment.
"I am extremely concerned for
the dangerous precedent it sets
for those who seek to destabilize
Florida's tourist economy and
environmental protection by
allowing oil companies to drill
within miles of our pristine coast-
line," the South Florida
Republican said in a May 1 state-
ment, repeating her opposition to
the planned sale.

Those interested shouldn't
procrastinate when applying,
as the deadline for the fall
semester is June 29. Deadline
for the spring 2008 scholarship
is Nov. 30.
The application is available
in the college Financial Aid

be downloaded from the col-
lege's Web site, www.fkcc.edu.
Seeker established the grant
in honor of his parents and
donated $125,000 to get it off
the ground, according to a pre-
pared statement from the
school.
This year, he plans to match
that amount in the Florida
Keys Educational Foundation,
and will continue giving post-
retirement.
Seeker's ultimate goal is to
reach $500,000, after which
the foundation would apply for
a matching grant from the state
that would bring the total
endowment to $1 million.

Seeker was the first in his
family to attend college and as
a result, he empathetically

providing education to all who
desire it. He earned his bache-

ty. The ceremony begins at 2
p.m. at Kathy's Hope in


Poinciana Plaza, next door to
Samuel's House.
The permanent home for
homeless women and their chil-
dren has been in the works for
more than two years. Elmira
Leto, founder of the temporary
women's housing facility
Samuel's House, says the Keys
community has made the facili-
ty possible.
"The community has been so
much behind this project," she
said. "Including in-kind servic-
es from the city [of Key West],
it's cost $1.2 million."
That funding translates into a
new lease in. life for Kathy's
Hope residents.
Though Samuel's House has
been providing shelter for
homeless women for several
years, it's structured as tempo-
rary housing and there are time
limits for its residents.


Leto said Kathy's Hope is
aimed at helping chronically
homeless women get their feet
under them, no matter how long
it takes.
"Our goal is to get them into
housing," Leto said. "If they
can't afford to get into the com-
munity in terms of first, last,
deposit, then we look to the
Housing AuthorityIf they're a
senior, then we'd like to eventu-
ally move them to the senior cit-
izens center."
Leto said the last time she
checked, there were more than
names 300 on the waiting list
with the Key West Housing
Authority.
Kathy's Hope means these
women can live in supportive,
structured housing, she says.
"They need that structure,"
Leto said.
The only criteria to be con-
sidered for residency at Kathy's
Hope is gender and homeless-


ness.
The Key West Fire
Department Honor Guard will
be on hand for the dedication to
honor the facility's namesake.
Kathy battled homelessness
and addiction in the Keys
before she died. Before coming


to the Keys, she was a member
of the East Naples Fire
Department, Leto said. The
young woman excelled in the
structure of Samuel's House,
Leto said, but fell into her
addictions again when out on
her own.

Housing panel


offers ideas


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The Key West Community
Housing Committee will make
yet more recommendations to
the City Commission at its June
5 meeting in an effort to quench
Key West's thirst from a drought
that is the city's lack of afford-
able housing.
"We all ran on an affordable-
housing platform," said com-
missioner Bill Verge, adding
that the first resolution the
reconstituted commission
passed following the October
2005 election was one declaring
a housing crisis in the city.
The committee discussed a
couple of initiatives at its May
21 meeting, including one that
would require 30 percent of
redevelopment to be designated
as affordable housing. This
would match an already existing
mandate that earmarks 30 per-
cent of all new development for
affordable housing.
Monroe County already
achieved Key West's goal, as
county commissioners passed
an ordinance last May that des-
ignates 30 percent of all redevel-
opment to affordable housing.
The other proposal is to grant
the city a right of first refusal on
affordable-housing properties
being sold, according to Paul
Clayton, the city's affordable-
housing coordinator.
This would allow the city the
first opportunity to buy a prop-
erty and possibly implement a

waiting list of people seeking
affordable housing, Mayor
Morgan McPherson said.
The recommendations,
which will be presented by
Chairman Richard Grusin, will
most likely be developed into
resolutions. McPherson, who's
been active in the fight for
affordable housing, told the
Keynoter he would be happy to
sponsor the resolutions.
If the recommendations are
followed and resolutions writ-
ten, the public can expect to see
them on the June 19 City
Commission meeting agenda,
McPherson said.
Another of the committee's
recurring initiatives is a dormi-
tory ordinance, though no spe-
cific locations for possible dor-
mitories have been nailed down.
"We are considering a pro-
posed dormitory ordinance, but
it's still in the works," commit-
tee member Tom Milone said.
"There is a question of enforce-
ment. How do you prevent it
from turning into a transient
rental?"
Grusin noted a large problem
the city is having with privately
owned units that don't meet
safety requirements.
The committee meets every
other Monday at 5:30 p.m. in
the ADA room of City Hall on
Angela Street. The City
Commission's next meeting is
June 5 at 6 p.m. at Old City Hall
on Greene Street.

Big Fish Club opens


Grill combines
old favorites
with new idea
By CLAUDIA MILLER
Keynoter Contributor

Change is part of the land-
scape everywhere you -look in
the Keys, including the newly
renovated Big Fish Club, for-
merly known as the Big Fish
Grill, mile marker 99 in Key
Largo. However, as much as
the Big Fish has changed, in
many ways it has remained the
same, combining old favorites
with the new.
Constantin and Daniela
Zaharia already owned the
building through their compa-
ny, North Star Resort
Enterprises, and took over the
business in January. After clos-
ing for renovations, they
reopened at the end of April,
transforming the Big Fish into
a dual restaurant and night-
club.
Daniela Zaharia said that
the restaurant is part of a larg-
er resort project that the com-
pany has planned for the prop-
erty behind the Big Fish build-
ing. They will keep the current
location open while they build
a new home for the restaurant.
The goal is to never close Big
Fish, and instead move
smoothly from one building to
the other. Once the move has
taken place, the current build-

The bar area remains rela-
tively the same in design but
with updated furniture. Sleek
black leather and chrome
stools line the bar and new
tables are black with modern
red, yellow and black chairs.
Although the pool table was


absent for the first few weeks,
it is now back in place in
response to customer requests.
The main dining room has
been converted into a multi-

Delivery 2 You expanding


Big Pine service
is soon moving
into Marathon
By PAMELA SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor

Summertime is coming, and
the living is easy... but it is about
to get even easier for Marathon
residents, thanks to Linda Akers
and her team at Delivery 2 You.
Operating from Big Pine Key
since November 2006, Delivery
2 You has been providing resi-
dents there with what Akers says
is quick and courteous delivery


of restaurant fare and consumer
goods, all at a reasonable price.
Akers bought the business from
its previous owner this past
April, and plans to expand into
Marathon by July 1, followed by
Key West in October. She
expects to eventually cover the
entire Keys.
Once the expansion takes
place, Marathon customers will
be able to log on to Aker's Web
site and make selections from
menus submitted by participat-
ing local restaurants. Then, a
quick call to the Delivery 2 You
central dispatch number sets the


wheels in motion and one or
more hot, made-to-order meals
will be delivered within an hour.
The cost, in addition to the price
of the order, is $4.95 and cus-
tomers can pay with cash,
check, or credit card.
Akers envisions a lucrative
partnership between her busi-
ness and Marathon restaurants.
"We hope to become an inde-
pendent extension of these won-
derful restaurants in Marathon,"
Akers said. "It's a great benefit
for the -restaurants because we
deliver their product to people

live bands and other entertainment will be featured


BIG FISH / From 13

p.m. to 4 a.m.
Off the dance floor are two
new VIP rooms. The more inti-
mate of the two is cocooned.in
sheer white fabric draped from
the ceiling and walls covered
with red velvet. There is a flat
screen TV, red leather couches
and colorful pillows. The other
room also has a couch and TV
but can accommodate more
people. The ceiling offers a
backlit glowing view of the


universe.
"The VIP rooms are a little
more intimate and off the beat-
en path," manager Dwayne
Tomlin said. "It's a perfect
place for a nice romantic con-
versation or a dinner with a lit-
tle more privacy. They're also
available for private parties."
At the end of the dance
floor, there is a new stage for
DJs and live bands, which will
be featured Thursday through
Saturday. Big Fish has a full
lineup of performers for June,
including Stereo Underground


and Sol Expression. On nights
with live entertainment, they
plan to offer a light bar menu
until 2 a.m.
Most of the kitchen staff
from the old Big Fish have
stayed on and are still turning
out locals' favorites like tuna
tacos and grouper sandwiches.
"The locals know us as
being a great restaurant, and
we want to keep that reputa-
tion," Zaharia said. "We're
lucky to have such a wonderful
staff. They are the ones who
really make the place work."


Zaharia said that some of
the challenges that they have
faced have been letting people
know that they are open and
getting them used to the idea
of having an upscale club-type
atmosphere in the Keys. She is
utilizing many different types
of advertising including news-
paper, radio, fliers and hotel
brochures.
Happy hour is from 5 p.m.
to 7 p.m. nightly with food and
drink specials, and on ladies
night, Thursdays, ladies drink
for free from 10 p.m. to mid-


night.
"Ladies night here is really
a place to be and be seen,"
Zahaira said. "The women
come dressed to impress. It's
really a nice night."
Tomlin said that the addi-
tion of the VIP rooms and the
dance floor provides a fusion
between South Beach and Key
West. "I think this is exactly
what the Upper Keys needs.
It's something just a tad bit
different, and I think people
will appreciate it."
The Big Fish Club is open
Wednesday through Saturday
from 5 p.m. to 4 a.m. and
Sunday from 5 p.m. to mid-
night. Call 453-0820 for more
information. There is never a
cover charge.

in for some reason. Maybe they
only have a bike or a scooter. Or
perhaps they're elderly and
don't drive anymore. It's a mar-
velous way to help those who
are homebound or disabled."
Akers said she has personally
experienced that feeling of help-
lessness, and it was a driving
force behind her purchasing
Delivery 2 You.
"I was paralyzed for six
months in the 1980s so I know
how difficult it is. So many peo-
ple are too proud to ask for
help," she said.
In addition to delivering


restaurant food, Akers' team
will also serve as personal shop-
pers, purchasing and delivering
groceries, household goods,
medicine, and liquor whatev-
er her customers want. The fee
for personal shopping will be 10
percent of the total tab.
In Marathon, Delivery 2 You
expects to employ four to six
drivers who will operate as inde-
pendent contractors. To ensure
quality and safety, Akers said
each of her drivers is bonded
and insured, and must pass a
criminal background check and
drug screening.
Akers, from Columbia, S.C.,
moved to Big Pine Key in
March. She earned a doctorate


degree in business marketing
and management from Purdue'
University, and says she has
owned hundreds of businesses
throughout her career. She is
particularly excited about
Delivery 2 You.
"It's just good for everybody
in the community," Akers said.
"Good for the customers, the
restaurants, and the drivers. It's
great for both tourists and
locals, and I see it really taking
off and bringing a wonderful
service to Marathon. Service
you can trust that's my
motto."

State Farm
settles case
State Farm Insurance Co.
will pay almost $6.8 million to
settle a class-action lawsuit by
Florida policyholders who said
the insurer unfairly depreciated
claims for screen enclosures
damaged in Hurricanes Katrina
and Wilma, according to court
records.
State Farm paid actual cash


value instead of the full
replacement value to about
12,000 customers whose
screen enclosures were dam-
aged by the 2005 storms. But
attorneys representing the poli-
cyholders argued insurance
policies did not allow State
Farm to depreciate the claims.
State Farm spokesman Phil
Supple said Thursday the mis-
understanding resulted from a
printing error in policies issued
in five Florida counties.


Bloomington, I11.-based State
Farm agreed to pay full
replacement cost to policy-
holders who got the misprinted
policy.
The company has also
issued new policies in the five
affected Florida counties that
clearly state future claims will
only cover the cash value of
screened enclosures, Supple
said.

rankings

Marathon player
stands at 76th,
grows stronger
Marathon's Marisa Brossard
enjoyed her most productive
tennis month ever in April,
entering two statewide tourna-
ments and playing on the final
day in both of them.
On April 14 at the Cambier
Park Designated in Naples,
after a first-round win, the 13-
year-old lost her second-round
main draw match. But she then
reeled off three straight wins to
carry her to the consolation
bracket finals, where she even-
tually was defeated.
On April 28, she entered the
Zone Super Series in
Jacksonville as the top seed
and rolled through all four
matches to claim the champi-
onship trophy.
That improves her record for
the year to 16-13 and the most
recent U.S. Tennis Association
rankings,- released May 11,
have her standing at 76th in the
Girls 14s' state rankings.
That's a benchmark for
Brossard, as the highest rank-
ing she had ever received in the
Girls 12s was 78th.
"I'm thrilled to have
reached this goal before I
turned 14," which is today, she
said. "Now I'm going to crack
the top 50."

new Dive Alive program is to be
staged on the campus of Florida
Keys Community College on
Stock Island two days prior to the
-July 25 opening of Florida's two-
day lobster mini-season, a time
period that traditionally attracts
the most divers to the Keys.
The challenge, marine-related
officials say, is that in their


enthusiasm to catch the tasty
Florida spiny lobster, many
divers either forget or fail to
exercise proper scuba diving
safety measures. Failure to do so
can result in diving accidents and
sometime those mishaps can be
catastrophic.
Five people died in Keys
waters during last year's mini-
season.
"A lot of accidents occur in


shallow water with divers forget-
ting very basic skills," says
Robert Guhl, a member of the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
dive team. "Most are preventa-
ble, if divers review skills and
check equipment properly.'"
The event is to combine scuba
and snorkeling skills stations and
games with mini safety briefings.

DiStefano rules the Masters


'Second Chance'
gets 3rd victory
in eight years

It was down to a vote to see if
the show should go on, the show
being the Yamaha Dolphin
Masters Invitational. The ques-
tion was asked of the 22 teams
that were to compete Saturday.
The conditions expected?
Cruddy. Still, the vote was to fish.
That decision* proved costly
for 21 of the 22 teams. The one
team it wasn't costly for: Capt.
Jeff DiStefano and the Second
Chance out of the King's Pointe
Marina.
Just like the Super Bowl
champs, the following year,
everyone comes gunning for you.
Well, DiStefano would be like the
Super Bowl champ of the
Dolphin Masters, winning two in
a row and four in the past seven
years since the tournament's
inception.
When the scales closed
Saturday night, the crew of the
Second Chance made it three in a
row and five wins in eight years.
Dynasty, anyone?
Asked how the fishing was,
the old line "no one likes a show
off' came to mind when
DiStefano answered. Not because
he bragged or showboated, but
more so because of what he
caught.
His 86.8-pound three-fish
aggregate of dolphin would nor-
mally have been enough, but let's
throw in a 30-pound wahoo on
mono right off the bat in the a.m.,
a sailfish at 900 feet later in the


day, and a
blue marlin

Cal Sutphin T h e
Yamaha
Dolphin Masters is essentially a
winner-take-all format with your
top three dolphins' total weight
counting as your total points. The
kicker is that you have to weigh
in three legal dolphin, which has
cost teams in the past who have
only found two fish. That rule
almost cost the crew of the
Second Chance a chance at a
three-peat.
DiStefano explains, "We
caught our second fish, which
looked like 40-pounder, around
2:30 and I said look, if we have to
be back in by 4, we have to find
another dolphin quick. We picked
up and ran back in a little closer
and found a couple of frigate
birds working on a piece of an old
floating barrel. We stuck with the
birds and picked up our third dol-
phin, right around 15 pounds. It
was 5 after 3 at that point and we
had to haul ... to get back in those
sea conditions."
The seas were a good 6 feet all
day, with the occasional 8-footer.
With no committee boat chat-
ting on the VHF, the crew of the
Second Chance had no idea


where it stood.
"I knew we had one good fish,
probably in the 40-pound class.
When that fish hit the scales,--I
couldn't, believe it was 54
pounds," DiStefano said.
That fish, in addition to their
15.9-pound and 16.9-pound dol-
phins for a total weight of 86.8
pounds, was enough to give
DiStefano, Arnold Brye and Criss
Wilkins, both from Inverness, the
championship and a check for
$11,000.
Tournament director John
Stuempfig joked about barring
DiStefano from any future
Dolphin Masters competitions.
Asked if there is luck involved
in consistently being around big
fish in this tournament,
DiStefano replied, "I'm not going
to say lucky. I believe in my abil-
ity. I make the best of every effort
in everything that I do."
He added, "I do believe there
is a small amount of luck that
everyone has, but it's what you
do after that. It's getting the bite,
No. 1. It's drawing the fish to you
to get that bite. I think that is
where I excel."
Coming in second were Capt.
Randy Sterling and the crew on
the Reel Conch out of Key West-
with a three-fish aggregate of
78.7 pounds, with the largest of
the three weighing 30.4 pounds.
Third place was earned by the
crew of the Eva Marie captained
by Jim Willis of Key West with a
total weight of 77:6 pounds. The
Eva Marie's.top fish was the sec-
ond largest of the tournament,
tipping the scales at the Conch
Republic Seafood Co. at 45.1
pounds.

stations.
Winds are down compared to
what we have had but for smaller
boats, it is still tough to do any-
thing. The local creeks and chan-
nels looked like a tournament
was being held in those specific
waters. It ,was amazing how
many fish were caught there,
probably mostly due to the fact
they could not swim too far with-
out running into another fishing
line.
The big worm run for tarpon I
wrote about last week hadn't
happened as of press time, but I
really am looking for it to shoot
off this full moon (the next day
or two.) The worm fly we devel-
oped looks just like the worm
that comes out of the sponges
that the tarpon eat, so get a hand-
ful and head to one of the bridge
channels on the start of the out-
going tide and look out.
Even if you don't fish, it is a
sight to behold when all of these
fish are on the surface looking
for them. Just take a walk on one
of the bridges and you will see
what I am talking about.
Thousands of tarpon all over
the surface of -the waters along
with hundreds of other species
eating these worms is a sight to
behold. Seriously folks, it is real.
This is not something that I
dreamt up at the Betty Ford
Clinic. Just ask any of the long-
time local tarpon guides.
Offshore action has been


tough lately. If you do go, look
for hot dolphin action from 3 to.
10 miles beyond the reef line.
For those not just after dolphin,
try the reef itself.
This has been a banner year
for yellowtail, although not too
many have had an opportunity to

fish for them most of this month.
Just work from 40 to 90 feet with
the depth recorder on and look
for schools to show up.
Other action that was good
this weekend and should contin-
ue is the snapper working
through the area bridge channels.
It is not red hot yet but quite
steady with plenty of big fish.
SOn windy days, and lately
when haven't they been, these
bridge channels are the best bet
for action. There are also plenty
of action species in the region
such as bug jacks, chubs, sharks
and a big resurgence of barracu- "
das. You can always tell when the
waters are warming when the
'cudas begin to show in numbers.
Bayside action has been good
in the deeper waters for snapper
and grouper, but the shallows
near the islands have been so
loaded with sharks, mostly bulls,
that fishing has been a challenge.
After about 30 minutes with the
chum out, you don't have much
of a chance with anything you
hook before a shark gets a hold
Sof it. If you are into shark fishing,
this is definitely your place to go
- and now.
