Willi met Wednesday with
Monroe County Chief Judge
Sandra Taylor to discuss possi-
bly closing down the Middle
Keys courthouse as a cost-cut-
ting measure.
"It's one of those glaring
issues in our capital budget,"
Willi told the Keynoter. "We
have a brand new courthouse in
Key West. The two others, in my
opinion, are an embarrassment
to the county. They're holding
capital murder trials in a trailer
in Marathon."
The 2006-07 county budget
is $373 million. Of that, $83.8
million is raised through proper-
ty taxes; the rest is from grants,
revenue sharing and the like.

helping the cats


Hefner agrees
to donate to
Big Pine shelter
By JESSICA MACHETTA
jmachetta@keynoter.com

The feral-cat roundup is set
to begin Monday in the National
Key Deer Refuge on Big Pine
Key, and Hugh Hefner, Playboy
founder and editor in chief, is
doing his part to ensure those
captured aren't euthanized.


The roundup is an effort by
the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
to help protect endangered
marsh rabbits in the area.
Reportedly, predation by feral
cats is contributing to the declin-
ing numbers of the rabbit
species Sylvilagus palustris
hefneri named after Hefner.
The Playboy magnate funded
a study in 1980 that identified
the species as endangered.

Chances of being a victim of
a burglary or car theft in the
Keys went up slightly in 2006,
according to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office.
But the chances of suffering
from a major crime remain
lower than in 2002-04, and far
lower than in 1989, Sheriff
Rick Roth said.
Last year, statistics com-
piled for a Florida Department
of Law Enforcement reports
shows Monroe County resi-
dents reported 2,245 "major
crimes." The number does not
include Key West reports.
In 2005, Monroe County
reported 2,160 crimes in the
same categories: rape, robbery,
Aggravated assault, burglary
and vehicle theft.
That is a 3.9 percent
increase from 2005 to 2006.
More than 3,000 crimes
were reported in 2002, and
declined in each of the follow-
ing three years before the 2006
uptick, according to Sheriff's
Office information.


In a report, Roth noted in
2005, there were 4,602 crimes
in the index for Monroe
County and Key West, with a
population estimated at 81,236.
When reporting started in
1989, the rate stood at 10,315
crimes with a smaller Monroe
County/Key West population
of 78,966.
"We are proud to report that
the citizens of our county are
much less likely to be a victim
of a crime today than they were
16 years ago," Roth said in a
statement.
S"We have seen a steady and
dramatic decrease in crime
over the years. Like this year,
there have been several other
years when we have seen small
increases but the overall pic-
ture is certainly impressive and
we expect the trend downward
to continue," he said.
There were no murders
committed in the Sheriff's
Office jurisdiction in either
2005 or 2006.
Reports of forcible rape
declined to 15 in 2006 after 18
reports in 2005.


Thefts defined as larceny
also declined, from 1,476 in
2005 to 1,454 in 2006.
Other crime-categories
show increases.
Robberies showed a 52 per-
cent jump, from 21 to 32 in
2006.
Reports of aggravated
assault went up 24 percent,
from 161 to 200.
There were 122 reports of
motor-vehicle theft, up 25 per-
cent from 97 in 2005.
Burglary reports climbed to
422, a 9 percent increase.
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office deputies posted a clear-
ance rate of about 24 percent
for its major-crimes index in
2006.
"The clearance rates for
major index crimes did ...
increase," says a Sheriff's
Office report. "Clearance rates
are the percentage of reported
crimes which are cleared by
arrest, or by other means."
Statewide, law agencies
posted a 2005 clearance rate of
about 23 percent.
Miami-Dade County had a
clearance rate of about 16 per-
cent in 2005.


Marathon called a 'stepchild'


COURTHOUSE / From I

The County Commission
meets Wednesday to hear pro-
posals to pare back the county's
capital expenditures. The meet-
ing begins at 10 a.m. at the
Harvey Government Center in
Key West. Willi says shuttering
the Marathon courthouse is one
of the ideas he intends to suggest.
"I have $2 million budgeted
to do repairs [on the courthouse]
and it isn't going to do the job,"
Willi said. "We need to tear
down and rebuild."
Willi says a county popula-
tion of around 75,000 does not
warrant three separate court-
houses.
"I understand the reason," he
said, "but at the same time I'm
being asked to provide alterna-
tive for cost cutting. Compared
with other counties, three is too
much."
The new Freeman Justice
Center in Key West is expected
to be up and running in Key
West in July. The $13 million-


plus courthouse has been in the
works for years but plagued
with construction problems.
Willi says he'll also propose
upgrading the Plantation Key
facility.
The judiciary and many of
the ancillary workers, including
attorneys are readying to turn
out in force at Wednesday's
meeting to oppose closing the
Marathon courthouse.
"Since when is Marathon a
stepchild of Monroe County?"
asked attorney and former
Assistant State Attorney Bill
Heffernan. "This would have a
catastrophic effect on the order-
ly flow of justice."
Hundreds of cases run
through the courthouse, he says,
ranging from capital cases to
traffic violations, from property
filings to divorce proceedings.
"Judge [Ruth] Becker runs an-
effective drug court," Heffernan
said. "Every citizen has a right
to easy access to its courts."
Willi argues that many resi-
dents of other Florida counties
face an hour's drive to the near-


est courthouse.
"Not only would we save in
capital costs," Willi said, "it
frees up county property and
there would be a savings in
operations and maintenance.
And there would be no need for
the detention center, bailiffs.
The savings are immense."
Neugent noted that court-
house operations drive ancillary
business and bring money into
the Marathon economy.
-Willi says whichever way the
proposal goes, it will not have
an effect on a proposed joint
venture with the city to create a
new library and city hall.
Marathon and the county
have talked about splitting con-
struction costs for a new county
library with a new Marathon
city hall on city property
between 98th and 99th streets.
However, the Marathon City
Council recently decided to
delay building a city hall until
more funding becomes avail-
able, particularly after the city's
central sewer project moves
forward.

Hef's girls love cats


HEFNER / From 1

"It has recently come to my
attention that marsh rabbits in the
[refuge] have become endan-
gered, and as a response, feral
cats in the area may ultimately be
euthanized," Hefner said in an e-
mail to the Keynoter.
"I have made a contribution to
Stand Up for Animals, a local
nonprofit that operates two ani-
mal shelters in the Florida Keys.
It's an organization on the front
lines, which I'm confident will
provide the greatest chance of
saving both the rabbits and the
cats."
Linda Gottwald, director of
Stand Up for Animals, said she
wrote Hefner a letter asking for
his support, and got a response
Wednesday when Mary
O'Connor, his assistant some-
times appearing on his reality
show "The Girls Next Door,"
called and said Hefner wanted to
help.
"She said that he'd read the
letter ... and said Hef's a big ani-
mal lover and the girls at the-
Playboy mansion had trapped
some feral cats, had them
neutered and they're there at the
mansion..."
O'Connor told Gottwald
Playboy has received numerous
letters and publicity about the
feral-cat situation.
That kind of attention contin-

Alien smuggler
gets eight years

Albert Pina-Suarez, 24, of
Miami was sentenced Tuesday to
eight years in federal prison fol-
lowing his Nov. 1 conviction on
24 counts of alien smuggling
stemming from a smuggling
attempt off the Keys.


guest on
Bridget
Marquardt's
debut radio
show (co-star-
ring her dog
named
Wednesday)
on Sirius
HEFNER satellite radio.
Marquardt is
one of "Hef's girls" on the show,
and Gottwald joined a lineup that
included Rob Zombie's wife and
the playmate of the year, Sara
Jean Underwood.
"And we've named a cat after
Hefner," Gottwald said. "It's a
tomcat that were going to neuter
and then adopt out his name's
Hef, and we also have a litter of
kittens we're going to name after
the girls on the show Bridget,
Holly and Kendra."
Gottwald said .she plans to
invite the crew to the Keys to
film a segment of the TV show
here.
Gottwald doesn't yet know
how much Playboy will con-
tribute, but said O'Connor told
her it's not going to be "earth-
shaking."
"I think it's really a wake-up
call that we need to spay and
neuter our cats," she said. "This
is a human problem, we're the
ones who dump them. I'm
thrilled about the donation, but
I'm more thrilled that he's giving
it the attention. This is a nation-
wide problem."


According to the U.S.
Attorney's Office in Miami, on
May 4, 2006, an air crew from'
the U.S. Coast Guard in Miami
spotted a go-fast boat about 35
miles south of Key West speed-
ing north. Coast Guard crews in
small boats from Marathon and
Key West intercepted the vessel
about six miles south of
Summerland Key.
But Pina-Suarez refused to
stop and U.S. Customs and
Border Protection agents arrived
and joined the pursuit. The chase
lasted nearly an hour before
Pina-Suarez's vessel ran aground
at Pye Key, an uninhabited man-
grove island about 24 miles east
of Key West.
Once aground, 23 Cubans
jumped off the boat and ran onto
Pye Key, leaving one Cuban with
a broken leg on the vessel.

Council moves


slowly on sewers


By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter,com


With the prospect of little if
any grant money coming to the
Keys to fund sewer projects, the
Marathon City Council on
Thursday voted to-proceed with
only two of the seven phases of
its sewer plan.
A staff chart at a special City
Council meeting showed that
with current bid prices at nearly
$35 million for the two phases
(the total project is estimated at
$82.5 million), and with only $8
million in state grants yet
received, the cost to connect a
single-family home to the system
could be $12,800.
Those assessments for resi-
dents living in areas four
(Sombrero Beach Road/U.S. 1
corridor) and a six (Coco Plum
Drive/U.S. 1 corridor) will be on
next year's tax roll and will be
equal to what every other resident
in the city pays once the remain-
ing five services areas come
online.
The council has scheduled a
meeting to discuss equivalent-
dwelling-unit issues for 6 p.m.
Tuesday at the Monroe County
Sheriff's- office hangar at Florida
Keys Marathon Airport.
Decisions made at that meeting
will be used to determine the
final assessment rates at a meet-
ing July 9.
Councilmen Don Vasil and
Mike Cinque said they wanted to
stop the project altogether until
more funding comes, but they
were defeated in the 3-2 vote
Tuesday.
"The average person through-
out this city can't afford this kind
of thing," Vasil said.
"Committing ourselves to 35-
plus million dollars at this point
... I think would be an irresponsi-
ble decision on the part of this
council."
"I'm of the opinion not to
move forward without funding,"
said Cinque, who disliked the
planned vacuum system as
opposed to a traditional gravity
system. "If we move forward
with area four, we are committing
ourselves to this type of system."
The vacuum system, designed
by consultant Wieler
Engineering, separates the city
into service areas with their own


pipes, vacuum pumps and
sewage treatment plants that
operate independently of each
other.
The Keys are under a mandate
from the state to upgrade all sep-
tic tanks and cesspits to advanced
wastewater standards by 2010 -
a fact that weighed on the major-
ity of the 'council Tuesday.
"If anybody in this room
thinks we can sit back for anoth-
er two or three years and
approach the 2010 deadline,"
Councilman Pete Worthington
said, "and get a bid one red penny
cheaper than what we have on the
table now ... I think you're
dreaming."
Vice Mayor Marilyn Tempest
said, "The idea that we do noth-
ing is not acceptable for me,"
while Mayor Chris Bull said he
wasn't "going to think short
term."
However, City Attorney
Jimmy Morales said the council
can't assume any more grants are
coming from the state, even
though the city's comprehensive
plan outlines a commitment from
the Department of Community
Affairs to fund 40 percent of the
total project.
"At this point, the Legislature
certainly doesn't view itself as
bound by anything," said
Morales, referring to $20 million
for Keys sewers cut from the
Legislature's 2007-08 state budg-
et.
Vasil said moving forward
without funding .takes even more
pressure off the state.
"It's about time that the local
representatives tell the state we
cannot afford this, and the fund-
ing must come from outside," he
said.
Before the city established
sewer authority in 2005, the
Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority
received a $181 million bid for a
citywide wastewater system.
The Aqueduct Authority pre-
viously led the Little Venice pilot
project to sewer several neigh-
borhoods through Marathon and
established connection fees of
$4,700 per single-family home.
Tuesday, the council tabled an
agreement to purchase the Little
Venice sewer plant from the
Aqueduct Authority.

Keys Opinion


The verdict: No to

shutting courthouse

It's push-come-to-shove time.
The Monroe County Commission on Wednesday will hear a
proposal from the county administrator to close down the
Marathon courthouse.
Tom Willi says it's a good way to save money.
It seems to us that he comes a little late to the lean 'n mean
budget philosophy.
And a bunch of irate court officers, attorneys and others are
expected to show up for Wednesday's commission meeting at
the Harvey Government Center in Key West and weigh in on
Willi's proposal.
The administrator met with Monroe County Chief Judge
Sandra Taylor to float a trial balloon on the expenses to be saved.
We hope she stuck a big giant pin in that one.
In today's Keynoter, you'll read Willi's arguments to close
down rather than repair or rebuild the badly outdated Marathon
courthouse. You'll also see County Commissioner George
Neugent's reaction, which includes such words as "insane."
And we guarantee this is one of those "times are hard and we
have to tighten our belt" speeches that may ring a bit hollow for
most in the audience, especially those who've watched the coun-
ty commit another $2 million to help sink the Vandenberg as an
artificial reef, and $3.12 .million to buy the Hickory House
restaurant on Stock Island.
That proposal turned out to be so dumb the county has put the
property on the market and hopes not to lose even more money.
And need we say anything more about the $13 million,
decade-long, and still-not-done Freeman Justice Center.
Talk about belt tightening should have started long ago and
targeted the big turkeys.
It's not too late for common sense to hold sway. If you feel the
same way, show up at Wednesday's budget workshop at the
Harvey Government Center and let the commissioners know
what you think. The session starts at 10 a.m.

Employee outlook a bit brighter
Every year for the past decade, the Key West Chamber of
Commerce has polled public and private employers to build an
important database on wages and benefits.
Not enough businesses take the time to send in the data, and
that's a shame. But the snapshot provided by the 73 businesses
that did respond (vs. 83 last year) nevertheless proves helpful.
Turnover has slowed and private businesses are offering more
benefits to retain valued employees, according to an analysis of
the results. That's good news. The public sector has actually
been able to reduce its turnover, and its more generous benefit
packages no doubt are a factor.
To learn more, turn to pages 1 and 9 and read our report and
charts on the 2007 survey.

Matthew Shepard Act would spread protection equally


EDITOR:
One in six hate crimes is motivated by the vic-
tim's sexual orientation or gender identity.
We have had a federal hate-crimes law on the
books since 1969, yet it has never included
crimes targeting victims because of their gender
identity or sexual orientation.
The job of the U.S. government, first and fore-
most, is to protect all Americans whether they're
black, Christian, disabled or gay.
The Matthew Shepard Act (S. 1105) is a
bipartisan bill that would expand the definition of
hate crimes to include violent attacks based on a
victim's gender, gender identity, sexual orienta-
tion or disability. It would also provide funding to
help law enforcement agencies investigate and
prosecute violent hate crimes.
The Matthew Shepard Act would only apply
to violent attacks based on the victim's gender,


sexual orientation, disability or gender identity. It
does not criminalize thoughts or free speech.
This legislation has been endorsed by more
than 230 civic, religious and law enforcement
organizations.
According to a recent Gallup poll, 68 percent
of Americans, cutting across race, religion and
ideology, favor strengthening laws to give local
police and sheriff's departments the tools and
resources they need to prevent.and prosecute
heinous acts of prejudice.
This law is not special treatment. It would
make sure Americans across the spectrum -
black or white, Christian or Muslim, gay or
straight, male or female are protected. It
comes down to ensuring that no American may
be targeted for violence because of who they are.

County can't buy way out of housing problem


EDITOR:
One or more of my fellow commissioners
has recently taken the position that basically, if
the county is really serious about preserving true
affordable and workforce housing, we should
just buy the remaining trailer parks to keep them
affordable for their current residents. This
approach is apparently a corollary to a fellow
commissioner's constant refrain that "we can't
build our way out of an affordable-housing.
problem."
While there is some merit to my esteemed
colleague's simplistic chant, I don't see how we
can simply "buy our way out" of our affordable-
housing crisis, either.
I understand there to be more than 75 trailer
parks in the Keys today. At an average of $10
million each, they would cost $750 million for
you, the taxpayers, to purchase. At an absurdly
low estimate of only, say, $5 million each, they
would cost $375 million, almost as much as our
mandated sewer obligations are conservatively
estimated to be.
Before we go on this king of buying sprees, I
would want to see this plan go before taxpayers
in a binding referendum. Plain and simple: Let's
see how the voters and taxpayers will take to
this buy-'em-all-up suggestion.
SI also feel it is really inappropriate for a com-
missioner, whether a county or planning com-
missioner, to decide as his or her policy that he
or she will from here on out vote.to deny any
sort of rezoning for any particular class of prop-
erty owners.
Rezonings, like variances and conditional-use
approvals, the latter granted by our Planning
Commission, come up only through a process
where a property owner pays an application fee
and often also pays for required studies and
plans and many other things. The property
owner must then present his or her case in a
quasi-judicial hearing, based upon facts and evi-
dence. It seems to me quite unfair for any com-
missioner to prejudge any case or class of cases
before potential citizen applicants have ever had
their rightful opportunity to present their case.
It is well recognized that a parcel of land,


unlike any other type of economic or communi-
ty resource, is always and fundamentally truly
unique from every other piece of land.
Property owners' requests relating to their
property should be addressed on a case-by-case
basis, according to established procedures and
after a hearing, not before. We should note that
the County Commission unanimously voted to
rezone several parcels at our last meeting. These
votes properly came after the property owners
had had their chance to present their particular
facts and circumstances to the board.
Finally, I point out for those who just seem to
want to criticize me for my initiative to have the
county purchase a waterfront parcel on Stock
Island last year: This purchase will ensure pub-
lic access to the water in one of the county's
most populous areas, and one without any exist-
ing public access to the waterfront.
Stock Island residents deserved the county
stepping forward and acquiring what were cru-
cial access rights. I am proud I helped in some
way to see that it happened. Our future residents
will not regret it.

Keys Opinion

Changing class times would hurt kids


EDITOR:
As a parent of a Stanley
Switlik Elementary School stu-
dent, I am shocked and con-
cerned about the proposed
time change with Marathon
High School for the year 2008-
09. Since this was not dis-
cussed at a Parent Teacher
Organization meeting as
planned, I would like to take
this opportunity to write and
express my feelings about the
matter so others can be aware
of this situation in our commu-
nity.
It would appear that this
proposed change would benefit
few to the detriment of the
youngest, most vulnerable stu-
dents in the district.
To arrive before 7:35 a.m.,
these young children would
have to be on the street wait-
ing for the bus before 6:50,-
when it is still dark in the
winter. Is this something that
we want to happen in our
town?
Elementary-school-aged
children need 10 to 11 hours
of sleep a night, according to
medical professionals; that
would mean for our small chil-
dren to get the proper amount
of sleep a night, they would
have go to bed at 7 p.m.,
which is right after dinner for
most working parents.
These young children would
then be having to wait seven to
eight hours after an earlier
lunch until normal dinnertime
around 6 p.m. This would
seem to go against promoting
family meals, which are so
important to a young child's
development.


Elementary-school children
are also in need of greater
supervision after school, and
getting out at 2:35 p.m. would
create a problem for many par-
ents. Although my children go
to day care before and after
school, the day care is not
even open at 6:30, 6:45 a.m.
The reason given for the
proposed time change is so
that the Marathon High stu-
dents may be able to take class
via teleconference with Key
West High. Even without any
time changes, the two high
schools will still overlap every
class from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Surely they can work within
this schedule without having
to disrupt the lives of every
young child in Marathon.
The health and welfare of
our children does not need to
be compromised in order to
accommodate these teleconfer-
enced classes. I hope the
Monroe County School Board
keeps in mind that most par-
ents are voters who elected
them to represent the best
interests of our children,
young and teenage, neither of
whom stands to benefit from
this proposal.
Lesley Banks
Marathon

Editor's note: Marathon
,High classes now start earlier
than those at Switlik.
According to Deputy
Superintendent Frankie St.
James, "We are just exploring
the idea of flopping the two
schedules for 2008-09 so the
high schools can be on same
time schedules."


A community remembers its fallen


EDITOR:
Another local newspaper in
the area stated in last week's
edition that no Memorial Day
services were to be held at the
Islamorada Hurricane
Monument. Jerry Wilkinson
commented that community-
wise, it's being more and more
forgotten and that sometimes
locals have small ceremonies
at the flagpole.
Sadly, this report was
wrong.
There have been services at
the monument for the past 30
years that I know of, with
crowds as large as several hun-
dred people, including approx-


imately 80 of the founding
families of our community.
The local crowds are smaller,
as most of them unfortunately
are no longer with us.
Today, representatives from
the Boy Scouts, the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office, state
Rep. Ron Saunders,
Islamorada Vice Mayor Cathy
Hill, Councilman Don
Achenberg, State Attorney
Mark Kohl and local historian
Irving Eyster were present,
along with close to 100 others
attending the services.
Islamorada does remember.

Bush finally getting


aboard the green train?


Who said politics isn't full of surprises?
Reading Friday about President Bush's call
for a 15-nation conference to address green-
house gas emissions, I thought this must be
an April Fool's Day joke.
After all, this is the same president who
refused to ratify the 1997 Kyoto Protocol lim-
iting greenhouse gas emissions.
His administration also challenged the sci-
ence that links these emissions to global
warming, a head-in-the-sand position that has
eroded almost as fast as our globe's retreating
ice caps.
Perhaps a confluence of some political real-
ities may have undermined the hard-liners in
the Bush administration, who were wedded to
energy exploitation instead of conservation.
Kevin Phillips, a noted political
analyst, author and former GOP
strategist, has written about this in
an update to his book, "American
Theocracy The Peril and
Politics of Radical Religion, Oil,
and Borrowed Money in the 21st
Century."
He points to the November 2006
election results as proof the politi-
cal landscape has shifted. And he
counts traditional Big Oil politics
among the causalities,
Phillips is widely credited with
tracking demographic shifts that Wayne I
led to the shorthand political map- Keynote
ping of red states and blue states.
Some of his early analysis was
used by the Reagan election team to capture
major chunks of Middle American voters
who had traditionally voted Democratic in
presidential elections.
He wrote "The Emerging Republican
Majority" in 1969, a book so influential that a
1982 reviewer for the Wall Street Journal
described Phillips as "the leading conserva-
tive electoral analyst the man who invent-
ed the Sun Belt, named the New Right and
prophesied the Emerging Republican
Majority in 1969."
Analyzing George W. Bush's 2004 reelec-
tion, Phillips notes the many connections
between energy-producing states and voting
patterns. Of the top 10 oil producing states,
only California swung to John Kerry.
"The U.S. car culture has strong region-
alisms," Phillips notes in his book. "The 13
states with 75 mph speed limits eight in
the mountain West, North Dakota, South
Dakota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas -
all lopsidedly, backed George W. Bush for
reelection."
What's the connection between car culture,
Big Oil and voting?
Perhaps the same connections that are now
emerging in the president's call to address
greenhouse gases.
Even the world's big oil companies are call-
ing for tougher measures than the White


I


House, according to a climate policy director
for the Natural Resources Defense Council
quoted in Friday's Miami Herald.
And this sudden White House focus on
greenhouse gases may not be just about sav-
ing the environment. It may be about saving
jobs.
Just look at what's happened to General
Motors, Ford and Chrysler, where depend-
ence on gas-guzzling trucks and SUVs has
made them manufacturing dinosaurs in the
global auto marketplace.
With gas prices in this country hitting all-
time highs and sales of gas-guzzling vehicles
plummeting it's clear that more than
greenhouse gases are of growing concern to
the White House.
When Consumer Reports
polled a randomly selected
national sample in April, before
the latest gas price hikes, it found
60 percent of respondents said
they were either "concerned" or
"very concerned" about the envi-
ronment. Only 6 percent said they
Were not concerned.-
Among respondents who told
interviewers they planned a new
car purchase within the next year,
"nearly seven out of 10 said they
would seek a vehicle with better
larkham fuel efficiency than their current
Publisher model," Consumer Reports
noted.
This shift in buyer preferences
is helping change the political landscape on
issues' like fuel efficiency, greenhouse gases,
even global warming.
Phillips cites the direct link in his book:
"Car preference turned out to be a revealing
guide to presidential preference, according to
a 2004 survey of 2,500 drivers sponsored by
Kelley Blue Book, the automobile valuation
guide.
"Predictably, the president led by a country
mile among drivers of Fords, Chevrolets,
large SUVs, and full-sized pickup trucks such
as the Chevy Suburban or Ford F-series."
Some critics of the president question how
serious he is about addressing greenhouse
gases.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is quoted in
Friday's McClatchy News Service report as
saying that "getting nations to set voluntary
emission targets was not enough to reverse
warming of the planet."
Depending on which scientific report you
read, we may have only a brief window to
make a difference.
Let's hope the president is genuine in his
concern and not just reacting to the rapidly
shifting politicalJandscape that will affect all
who follow him in the Whit-House.
Ironically, the(decisi6ns made to address
global warming io&w will dramatically impact
future voters not yet born.

Cinque floats wage law


Idea gets cold
reception from
the City Council
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

Marathon City Councilman
Mike Cinque said he was a little
stunned at the cold reception of
his fellow council members
when he proposed the city look
into a living-wage ordinance.
"I thought it might be some-
thing worthwhile to look into,
and maybe we can get the coun-
ty onboard," said Cinque, who
initiated the discussion at the
close of the council's Thursday
sewer meeting.
"I'm not for big government
control, but I'm also of the
belief to pay people livable
wages."
More than 40 cities and
counties across the U.S. now
have some form of a living-
wage ordinance, which uses a


formula to determine what
wages employers should be pay
based on housing, health care
and other costs.
The Key West Living Wage
Coalition proposed a similar
ordinance in Key West in 2002,
although the initiative didn't
last.
Cinque said he decided to
propose the idea after talking
with City Attorney Jimmy
Morales, who co-sponsored a
living-wage ordinance when he
was on the Miami-Dade County
Commission.
"In some parts of the county
... governments impose living
wages on all employers in a
community," Morales told the
council. "The Florida
Legislature, however, decided
to preempt local governments
from doing that."
Instead, Florida govern-
ments can only require contract-
ed companies to provide living
wages to employees. That fig-


ure is more than $10 an hour in
Miami-Dade, and the cities of
Miami Beach and Gainesville
have similar ordinances.
"I think this has the strong
smell of rent control,"
Councilman Pete Worthington
said. "It's going to be a cost that
is passed on to us through the
contracts."
Councilman Don Vasil
agreed, saying the ordinance
would lead to increased contract
prices and therefore higher
taxes.
"I want contractors to be free
to bid without putting extra
restraints," Vice Mayor Marilyn
Tempest said. "I don't want
another set of rules."
The reaction appeared to
frustrate Cinque, who said, "So
the next time I hear about
impact fees or a tax ... let's just
throw it all out the window."
"I'm fine never talking about
affordable housing again," he
added. "Sometimes you have to
lead. We've got a lot of politi-
cians and few leaders."


Incentives still lacking


WAGES / From I

released last week, the average
turnover rate in the private sector
was 52 percent, down from 56
percent in the 2006 survey.
"We've had businesses close
over this past year," Panico said.
"When they reopen, it could
change that number."
In the public sector, which
includes everything from court-
house employees to mosquito
control, the overall turnover rate
is lower. It went from 15 percent
in 2006 to 14 percent in 2007.
Better overall benefits may be
one reason people tend to stay
with a public-sector job, though
Panico noted that health insur-
ance coverage is improving in the
private sector.
Of the 73 private businesses
that responded to the survey, 72
percent of them offer their
employees health insurance. All
of the public entities offer health
insurance.
"In our comparisons from pre-
vious years, we find that in the
last two years, we see an increase
in the number of employees
receiving health insurance and
additional benefits in the private
sector," Panico said. "It shows
employers are concerned in hav-
ing qualified, satisfied workers."
More than half the private-
sector businesses that responded
to the survey noted they offer
dental benefits while only 34 per-
cent offer vision coverage. All
full-time public-sector workers
are offered dental care, and 87


percent receive vision coverage.
When it comes to further
incentives such as long-term dis-
ability and cost-of-living. wage
adjustments, the public sector
drops down, in some cases lower
than the private sector.
Only 40 percent of the public-
sector jobs offer long-term dis-
ability while 46 percent of private
respondents offer the same.
SHealth insurance for retirees
looks to be, according to survey
results, unique to public entities.
None of the private companies
reported retirement health care
while 67 percent of the public
entities offer it, including
Monroe County, where the cover-
age often comes under scrutiny
during budget season.
Panico said that overall wages
looked to be down somewhat.
"Raises based on merit in the
private sector stayed the same" as
in 2006," she said. "Year-end
bonuses stayed the same. The
public sector is running neck in
neck with the private side in
wage increases."
She noted that although raises
may have slowed a bit, the public
sector received higher-than-aver-
age raises the previous year.
The survey represents 2,800
private-sector employees and
nearly 4,000 public workers.
Though the respondents are all
chamber members, Panico said
the response was broad enough to
be considered- an indicator of
trends Keyswide, especially since
the Key West chamber has mem-

Cay Clubs Xtreme fishing series foundering


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Team owners in the Billfish
Xtreme Release League say they
have deep doubts about the
future of the televised fishing-
tournament series.
. Less than three weeks from
the scheduled start of a June tour-
nament in St. Martin, teams have
not received any information on
whether the contest will take
place.
The BXRL, an affiliate of Cay
Clubs Resorts and Marinas,
called off its May tournament in
the Turks and Caicos.
Mike Gautreaux, then the
league's executive director, said
planning continued for the
remaining three tournaments.
Gautreaux has since resigned
his position as the league's exec-
utive director.
"As an independent contrac-


tor ...I chose to execute my
option to terminate my contract
with the BXRL," he wrote
Thursday in an e-mail respond-
ing to a Keynoter query. "I have
no word on the St. Martin tourna-
ment."
"It seems to be in limbo," said
Robert McCullough, owner of
the Spencer Yachts team that
won BXRL's 2007 opening tour-
nament in Marathon. "There has
not been a lot of information
coming to the team owners.
We're in the dark."
Team owners paid a reported
$225,000 entry fee to fish the
seven scheduled tournaments in
2007.
At the Cay Clubs
International headquarters office
in Clearwater, clls about the
BXRL were transferred to a
staffer's voice mail. No messages
had been returned as of press
time.
"We're being treated shabbily.


The whole thing is ridiculous,"
said Robert Ruwitch, owner of
the Sharky's Revenge team that
won the BXRL's Bimini tourna-
ment in late April.
Ruwitch's team claimed the
first BXRL series title in 2001
and is the only team to fish each
of the league seasons since.
"This is a sad commentary on
the BXRL," Ruwitch said.
"They've taken what was a fun
and enjoyable thing, and driven
the excitement and camaraderie
out of it."
Highlights from the BXRL
series, founded by noted offshore
guide and fishing-show host
Norm Isaacs, were shown on
ESPN2.
The league "was good televi-
sion, good for the sport and good
for promoting conservation,"
said McCullough, a Destin resi-
dent. "Now it's not a good situa-
tion at all."
Cristal Clear BXRL Tour-


naments acquired the series in
2006. Operating managers are
listed as Cay Clubs founder Dave
Clark and David Schwarz. Cay
Clubs sponsored a team in com-
petition, and used the events to
promote Cay Club's resort prop-
erties.
Cay Clubs has been laying off
employees and combining some
operations in the Keys. Company
officials have said it's in antici-
pation of a planned business
merger but have since declined
comment when first reported by
the Keynoter last month.
The BXRL has until June 11
to declare whether the.St. Martin
tournament would begin June 22.
That does not leave fishing
teams much time for prepara-
tions or travel to the Caribbean
island, said the team owners.
"It's not totally out of the
question but there are a lot of fac-
tors to consider," McCullough
said. "It's not really enough time


to prepare."
Ruwitch did not learn the May
tournament was cancelled until
he arrived in the Turks and
Caicos.
"The way Cay Clubs has
treated the owners is not fair,"
Ruwitch said. "We negotiated a
contract in good faith. When we
negotiated [the 10-days-prior
clause to cancel an event], we
were thinking about hurricanes
or a force majeure situation."
"The whole thing leaves a bad
taste," said Ruwitch, a plastics-
company owner and frequent
competitor in Keys offshore tour-
naments. "People have business-
es and families. They need to
plan for the summer. We hear
things are going to happen, but
now they're not."
Said McCullough, "If they're
not going to finish the season,
don't leave people hanging.
They're losing opportunities to
fish other tournaments."

Cay Clubs releases $350,000


By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com


Developer Cay Clubs Resorts
and Marinas has paid $350,000
to the Monroe County School
District for dropping out of a
multimillion-dollar property
deal.
The struggling company,
which recently laid off scores of
workers and has been combining
some operations to save costs,
released the money from escrow
May 16, marking the end of the
company's plan to purchase the
Marathon Manor property from
the School District for $7.4 mil-
lion.
The deal goes back to Sept.
28, 2006, when Cay Clubs and
the School Board finalized a con-
tract for the company to buy the
former convalescent center and
land, donate some land back to
the district for use as Marathon
High School ball fields and park-
ing, and create a 65-unit afford-
able-housing complex.
But the company decided to


drop out of the contract earlier
this year, a move that required
Cay Clubs to give up its
$200,000 down payment and pay
$150,000 in fees.
The School Board approved a
second contract extension on
April 27. If Cay Clubs accepted,
it would have cost the company
another $150,000 in fees plus
$100,000 for interest the district
would have made on the $7.4
million purchase price. Cay
Clubs backed out shortly after.
"I'm kind of disappointed we
didn't get a bigger down pay-
ment," School Board Chairman
Andy Griffiths said.
The board didn't try to negoti-
ate the contract with Cay Clubs
very much because the offer
sounded ideal, Griffiths said.
"They came in like angels,"
he said.
He said that the board would
require more in the future.
"No matter how wonderful
they look coming to you with a


great deal, you need to get 10
percent down as a nonrefundable
deposit. That would make it hard
to walk away," Griffiths said.
At a May 8 School Board
meeting, board members said
they will consider options for the
property and might release
another request for proposals.
Superintendent Randy
Acevedo said the district would
keep some of the land for expan-
sion of facilities.
"Why can't that be the
Trumbo [Point] of Marathon?"
Griffiths asked, referring to Key
West land the district owns.
The district might accept bids
for potential housing where
Marathon Manor is now,
Acevedo said.
"Housing could range from
using the existing structure for
condo-style homes or we could
demolish it and put affordable
housing there," he said.
"I've also had community
members ask about the potential
of opening a convalescent center
there. We're open to that, too."


Pinkus ethics case gets hearing


By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Florida Commission on
Ethics is scheduled Tuesday to
hear a case of possible ethics vio-
lations by former Marathon City
Councilman Jeff Pinkus, accord-
ing to information provided by
Marathon resident Rick Servais,
who filed the initial complaint.
Pinkus wouldn't comment on
the state investigation that began
in mid-2006.
It surrounds a meeting where
he, as a councilman, allegedly
initiated a plan for his employer,
Cay Clubs Resorts and Marinas,
to purchase the former Marathon
Manor nursing home.
A May letter from the Ethics
Commission, provided by
Servais, says Pinkus and his legal
counsel are allowed five minutes
to address the commission in
Tallahassee. Pinkus said he
would not attend.
"This is just something that
the Ethics Commission does,"
Pinkus said. "It's standard proce-
dure just to determine if there is
probable cause to proceed."
Commission spokeswoman
Kerrie Stillman said a probable-
cause hearing occurs after pre-


liminary investigation of witness-
es and documents surrounding
the case.
Stillman said the commission
could dismiss the case if no prob-
able cause is found or, if cause is
found, move the case to an
administrative hearing before a
judge.
Penalties usually result in
fines up to $10,000 per violation,
Stillman said, or the accused can
reach a penalty agreement with
prosecutors similar to a plea bar-
gain.
Servais filed his complaint in
March 2006. He alleges "a gener-
al contractor/handyman [Pinkus]
with no large project experience
has been hired by Marathon
Hotel Partnership LLC and by
Cay Clubs, given a salary, mem-
bership in Sombrero Country
Club, etc., in order to secure
favorable votes from this city
councilman."
Servais provided council
meeting minutes that show
Pinkus made a motion and then
voted on a consent-agenda item
that included a development
agreement for the Key Colony
Bay Hotel, which was owned at


the time by the late Tracy Holder,
who was Pinkus' employer at
Cay Clubs.
The complaint also claims
Pinkus' support of the city's
hotel/motel ordinance was uneth-
ical, as it allowed Cay Clubs to
redevelop hotels into more valu-
able multi-bedroom suites.
Servais claims Pinkus also
voted for the. city to purchase
property to be deeded to the
Middle Keys Community Land
Trust, of which Pinkus is a board
member.
The most substantial allega-
tion is that Pinkus, supposedly
acting as a councilman, told other
city, county and school officials
that Cay Clubs could purchase
Marathon Manor from the
Monroe County School District,
donate some property back to the
School Board and develop the
remaining parcel for affordable
housing.
"If he was acting as a private
citizen, he would not be making
an offer from the City Manager's
Office," Servais writes in the
complaint. "But as a city council-
man, who holds the hire and fire
power over the city manager, Jeff
could use the city offices to make
an improper/illegal offer."

Rossi fesses up


Charge will be
dropped after he
takes workshop
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Key West City Commissioner
Mark Rossi, charged Tuesday
with a misdemeanor for alleged-
ly violating the state's Sunshine
Law governing open govern-
ment, on Friday agreed to take a
crash course in the law.
"We reached a plea agreement
with Mark Rossi. We will drop
the charges in exchange for his
participation in a Sunshine Law
workshop not unlike the work-
shop that the county commis-
sioners did," Monroe County
State Attorney's Office
spokesman Matthew Helmerich
said.
"It's our goal to help our gov-
ernment officials learn the
importance and the details of the
Sunshine Law."
Tuesday, State Attorney Mark
Kohl charged Rossi with the mis-
demeanor based on comments he
made at the June 6, 2006, City
Commission meeting.
In those comments, he admit-
ted talking to Mayor Morgan
McPherson about city business
over the telephone illegal
under the law, since the conver-
sation did not take place at a pub-'
licly advertised meeting.
McPherson was not charged


because the evidence didn't sup-
port it, Helmerich said.
"There seems to be a smoking
gun with Commissioner Rossi,"
Helmerich said. "There is no
smoking gun with Mayor
McPherson."
At that 2006 meeting, Rossi
said, "The mayor's got one rea-
son for this. Well, granted, he did
call me today and ask that." The
comment regarded postponing a
resolution dealing with unbud-
geted expenditures.
Before Friday, both Rossi and
McPherson maintained their only
topic of conversation that day
concerned McPherson's pur-
chase of an In-N-Out Burger T-
shirt for Rossi. McPherson was
out west on a trip.
"I asked Morgan to get me a
T-shirt," Rossi said. In-N-Out
Burger "is a chain from
California and it's really good."
Before Friday's deal was
reached, Rossi was scheduled to
appear before Judge Peary
Fowler at 9 a.m. on June 25. If
convicted, the maximum punish-
ment would be a. $500 fine or 60
days in jail.
Investigator Andrew Kempel
discovered cell-phone records,
indicating Rossi called
McPherson, who was in Nevada
at the time attending a national
conference for mayors.
"One hundred percent of my
memory is that Mark contacted
me because he was an avid T-


shirt collector," McPherson said.
"And he said the In-N-Out burg-
ers were the best thing since
sliced bread."
Later interviewed by an
investigator, Rossi described the
comment at the meeting as a
"Freudian slip."
Charges against Rossi come
after the dismissal of civil
charges against Monroe County
Mayor Mario Di Gennaro and
Commission Sonny McCoy.
In October 2006, the two
spoke in passing of the possibili-
ty of Di Gennaro becoming
county mayor, which later
became a reality.
Kohl reasoned that because
the charges were only second-
degree misdemeanors, he would
agree to drop them if both Di
Gennaro and McCoy attended a
two-hour workshop on the in and
outs of the Sunshine Law. The
officials attended and the charges
were dropped.
The difference between
Rossi's charge and the county
officials' charges is that Rossi's
showed intention, thus making it
criminal, Helmerich said. The
incident with McCoy and Di
Gennaro, he said, was simply an
off-the-cuff conversation.
"If I made a mistake I'm
sorry, you know?" Rossi said.
"I'll learn some sunshine" at the
workshop.

New York man
rejects offer
to lead council
By JESSICA MACHETTA
jmachetta@keynoter.com

A search committee charged
with finding someone to fill the
director position for the Florida
Keys Council of the Arts con-
tinues to review applicants.
Shirley Freeman, chair-
woman of the committee, said
the job was offered, to Tim
Sauers of New York, but "he
declined, saying compensation
wasn't sufficient."
The public advertisement
for the position offered a range


from $47,500 to $55,000 annu-
ally, depending on experience.
Committee members said
they received about 70 resumes
in response to the ad and sent
out forms to those people for
more information. About 25
mailed the forms back.
"What we're doing is going
back to the many people who
applied for the job," said
Connie Groth, chairwoman of
the arts council board "We did
some phone interviews Friday
and we're doing more next
week. We started with the top
tier of candidates and we're
just going to continue on."
Groth added that some
"very high-level candidates"


applied, so those are the ones
being interviewed over the
phone so the committee can
determine who should be asked
to come to the Keys and inter-
view.
Phone interviews will con-
tinue through Thursday "just to
kind of get a feel for them," she
said. "Then we're going to
make a decision as to what our
next step is going to be."
The next arts council board
meeting is scheduled for July,
so Groth said a special board
meeting will likely be planned
for June to expedite the
process.
Monica Haskell, director of
the Florida Keys Council of the
Arts for 10 years, steps down
July 1 to pursue other interests.

Nonprofit funding


stays level overall


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Community Health of South
Florida, the new kid on the block
in Keys primary health care, will
probably not receive county
funding in the 2007-08 budget,
but that won't stop them from
opening their doors Tuesday.
"We have made a commit-
ment to the community and to
the Fishermen's Hospital
Association, so we're moving
forward even without those
funds," Community Health
Chief Executive Officer Brodes
Hartley said.
The Monroe County Human
Services Advisory Board last
week drew up its list of recom-
mendations for the Monroe
County Commission, suggesting
the county fund social services
to the tune of $2.3 million.
Community Health, or CHI,
requested $196,000 for-its first
year of operation at Fishermen's.
However, budget constraints and
strict rules for -adding new
providers to the funding formula
mean CHI won't receive county
money.
Coupled with the fact that the
agency did not receive any fed-
eral funding for the startup in
what Hartley calls "the first
release of funding," the offerings
of the new clinic may not be as
extensive as the agency had
hoped.
"We're disappointed that we
were not successful but we
understand the process and we
are committed to serving the
Monroe County community,"
Hartley said. "We are continuing


to develop our programs, though
we cannot maintain the level we
anticipated initially."
That means one full-time
physician available daily along
with nursing support staff,
according to Hartley.
Though the Human Services
Advisory Board's overall recom-
mendation is equal to the 2006-
07 allocation, the board shifted
some funding, lowering some
allotments and increasing others.
Diana Flenard, executive
director of the Monroe
Association for Retarded
Citizens, says the $10,000 cut
from her budget will have a
direct impact on the agency's
clients. MARC requested even
funding with 2007, asking for
$205,000. The board recom-
mends $195,000.
"It makes it difficult for us to
continue with our community
inclusion dollars," Flenard said.
That program takes MARC
clients into the community to
learn basic skills ranging from
banking to grocery shopping.
"We're just going to hope the
community will continue to sup-
port us to make up the shortfall,"
Flenard said.
The Florida Keys Outreach
Coalition, which provides serv-
ices for the homeless, the
Domestic Abuse Shelter and
Helpline are other agencies that
could receive less in 2008 than
in the current budget year.
The PACE Center for Girls,
which helps at-risk teens finish
school, is slated for an increase
from $75,000 to $90,000. The


Florida Keys healthy Start
Coalition is recommended for
the largest increase, from $5,000
in 2007 to $10,000 in 2008.
But as Flenard noted, these
are just recommendations, and
any funding still must be
approved by the County
Commission..


Indictments follow Keys vacation


Associated Press


Two former Dallas (Texas)
School District officials,
including one who later served
as superintendent of Detroit
Public Schools, are accused of
taking bribes from a Houston
businessman whose company
was awarded nearly $40 mil-
lion in technology contracts,
according to a federal indict-
ment unsealed Tuesday.
William Frederick Coleman


III, former chief operating offi-
cer for Dallas schools, and for-
mer chief technology officer
Ruben B. Bohuchot are
accused of taking kickbacks to
help win contracts for Frankie
Logyang Wong's company,
Micro Systems Engineering
Inc.
The men face charges of
bribery, conspiracy to commit
bribery and conspiracy to com-


mit money laundering.
In May 2002, Wong's com-
pany paid for a trip to Key
West for the three men and
their wives. While there, they
discussed a contract to provide
computers before the Dallas
School District had issued a
public request for purchase,
inside information that helped
Wong win a $4 million con-
tract, the indictment alleges.
Wong received another $36
million contract following that.

Ups and downs in social services

The Monroe County Human Services Advisory Board will recommend even funding in
the 2007-08 county budget for 28 nonprofit agencies in the Keys. Though the overall recom-
mendation matches the current year's $2.3 million, some individual agencies may get
small increases while others could experience cuts.

Scholl, Bethel far


apart on money


New manager
wants more than
the minimum
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

At Old City Hall this
Tuesday, the City Commission
will debate the specifics of
incoming City Manager Jim
Scholl's contract, negotiated by
City Commissioner Harry
Bethel.
Wednesday, City Attorney
Shawn Smith and Bethel sat
down with the retired U.S. Navy
commander to work out the
terms of his contract.
Both parties says negotia-
tions went well, but the salary
Bethel is proposing to the com-
mission is not the most agree-
able for Scholl.
Bethel will be out of town
during the meeting.
The commission set the
salary range for the next city
manager, to replace the retiring
Julio Avael, between $165,000
to $200,000.
"As I explained to Mr. Scholl
during our meeting on
Wednesday, I cannot support or
justify any starting salary except
$165,000," Bethel explained in
a letter to the mayor and com-
missioners.
"While Mr. Scholl has feder-
al government experience, he
has absolutely no experience in
local government," Bethel
wrote. "He does not possess the
knowledge of such issues that
can in any way justify starting at
anything but the low end of the
salary scale."
"It is inconceivable to me
that the commission should pay
an incoming city manager any
more than $165,000 when Mr.
Avael has not been paid any-
thing close to this amount with
experience and qualifications,"
Bethel said in the letter.
Avael earns $143,000 annu-
ally.
"I have the greatest respect
for Commissioner Bethel,"
Scholl said. "He is certainly
very candid and that's how it
ought to be. You have to be hon-
est and express your opinions."
Scholl said he would be sat-


isfied with a salary of about
$180,000 to ease the financial
blow of moving to town from
his current home on Cudjoe
Key. Scholl wants to make the
move to be more accessible in
his new job. The position, how--
ever, does not require he move
into city limits.
At a time when property
prices are sky high, he is not
asking for a moving allowance,
just a slightly higher salary than
what Bethel proposed, Scholl
said.
He's started looking at hous-
es to buy in town, and said he's
discovered it will probably cost
between $5,000 and $7,000 a
month total with mortgage,
taxes and the like.
Scholl also noted he has
health-care coverage through
his Navy pension, and would
save the city money in that
respect.
Scholl said he's ready and
looking forward to tackling
tasks ahead -particularly craft-
ing the 2007-08 city budget.
Also Tuesday;
Once again, the second
reading of an ordinance to
annex Wisteria Island, better
known as Christmas Tree Island
will come up for a vote.
Environmentalists, liveaboard
boaters, developers and com-
missioners are divided on the
issue.
Approval of a bid from
D.N. Higgins for the $7.94 mil-
lion Rockland Key waste trans-
fer facility will reappear for
debate. A resolution approving
the bid was tabled at the May 15
meeting after General Services
Director David Fernandez got
the bid down from its original
$8.4 million.
Commissioner Mark
Rossi's resolution asking the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection to
submit a redevelopment plan for
Fort Zachary Taylor State Park
for the city to review.
+ A resolution awarding a
bid to Toppino & Sons to con-
struct 10 stormwater injection
wells. The bid total comes to
$2.24 million.
The commission meets at 6
p.m. Tuesday at Old City Hall.

Stock Island


going upscale


It's easy to find

your perfect color.


Values skyrocket,
latest sale is
prime example
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Real estate sales may have
flatlined, statewide, but water-
front property on Stock Island is
still a hot seller.
In the first four months of
2007, $40.8 million has changed
hands for parcels along Shrimp.
Road and 5th Street, and the sale
of another three parcels adding
up to $10.25 million closed
Thursday.
Andy Griffiths, who owns a
charter fleet of six vessels, signed
over Mayberry Marina to New
Stock Island Properties LLC and
its principal Charlie Renier, com-
pleting an acquisition that
includes docks, condos, parking
and even some bay bottom.
Griffiths, the chairman of the
Monroe County School Board,
says he was able to negotiate a
two-year lease for his fleet. More
importantly, he said, was a simi-
lar lease to the 43 liveaboards
that dock on the property, live-
aboards that provide affordable
housing for the occupants.
"We have real live working
boats with real live working peo-
ple that work on these boats, peo-
ple that live on the waterfront,"
Griffiths said. "We have to pre-
serve that."
Griffiths says Renier has a
vision that will sustain the color
and history of the island's water-
front while generating a strong
economy.
"What we understand is the
colorful part of the harbor is what
will draw people," Griffiths said,
adding that Renier, who was
unavailable for comment, "has a
common interest in preserving
that authenticity. I'm comfortable
that that is a genuine goal."
Monroe County enacted a
moratorium last year that tem-
porarily halted redevelopment of
marinas and working waterfront
parcels into residential condo-
miniums. The County
Commission extended the mora-
torium until July. County Marine
Resources Director George
Garrett says another extension is


on tap for the commission meet-
ing in June.
Land values on Stock Island
have soared, even without the
allure of creating residential
properties. In fact, one parcel
purchased by Renier's company
in April for $9.98 million sold for
just $290,000 in 2004.
New Stock Island Properties
paid another $9.1 million for
another Shrimp Road parcel in
April. That property sold for
$750,000 last July. A buyer paid
$340,000 for it in 2004 and it
sold for just $50,000 in 2003.
Part of the value of these
parcels, including those sold by
Griffiths, is access to a deep-
water channel.
Griffiths points to Safe Harbor
Marina, just across the water,
which has been redeveloped in
recent years, combining art gal-
leries and an eatery with com-
mercial dock space and live-
aboards.
"A lively working waterfront
is good business," he said.
In the meantime, county
staffers are coming up with
incentives to encourage water-
front property owners to maintain
traditional working uses, includ-
ing boatyards and commercial
dockage and trap storage.

Tattoo OK could come Tuesday


Parlors already
renting space
in anticipation
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


The Key West City
Commission is expected to
decide Tuesday to either take a
step closer to allowing tattoo par-
lors in the city proper or freeze
the body artists' dreams of mov-
ing their businesses to the island.
Four potential parlor owners
have plans to open up shop in
Key West some of which have
current locations on Stock Island,
like Paradise Tattoo and
Goldie's.
According to owner Doreen
Eppy, Paradise Tattoo, which
already has space at 627 Duval
St., is ready for action. The Stock
Island location has been operat-
ing- for 15 years, she said.
Whatever the commission
decides, she will keep that loca-
tion.
Eppy's 2,000-square-foot par-
lor offers body piercing and a
variety of body jewelry, along
with tattoo-themed merchandise.
Another hopeful business is
Key West Ink.
"We're ready, right now,"
owner Jim McAlhaney said
while he toyed with a new high-
definition television already
hung in his 717 Duval St. loca-
tion. "We put $500,000 in
expenses [for the parlor] so far."


Painted on the walls of the
vacant shop are scenes of Key
West historical or cultural value
- Ernest Hemingway, the south-
ernmost buoy and old pirate
ships, to name a few.
Five empty leather seats await
their hopeful customers. Two
would be used for appointments,
two for locals and one for guest
artists. A private room is tucked
away on the second floor for cus-
tomers wanting privacy.
McAlhaney said he already
has appointments booked for two
years, as he takes five or six
appointments a day though
locals get first-priority, he said
with a grin.
After being turned down from
the city in October, Key West Ink
sued the city, citing a violation of
First Amendment rights,
McAlhaney said.
Paradise followed suit, literal-
ly, and the two groups have con-
solidated, Eppy said.
Key West Ink has postponed
the suit until July, but it will be
dropped altogether, McAlhaney
said, if the ordinance lifting the
band on the facilities passes.
Tuesday marks the first reading;
the second should come at the
following City Commission
meeting.
According to historian Tom
Hambright, the ban on tattoo par-
lors in the city was implemented
in the 1950s as an effort from the
U.S. Navy to stop sailors from
getting hepatitis from the old


shops' unsanitary procedures.
Those days are long gone,
McAlhaney said, revealing a
fully stocked sanitation room.
All equipment is sterilized
and needles are used only once.
He's taken classes on blood-bor
pathogens, HIV training and car-
diopulmonary resuscitation. And
his employee Bo Mencarli
worked 10 years in the U.S.
Army as a sterilization techni-
cian, he added.
He also said the kind of peo-
ple getting tattoos has developed
into what people in the past
might've called an unlikely
crowd.
"They're a different breed of
people now," he said. "About 32
percent of people getting tattoos
are middle-aged, higher-class
women with families." He added
that professionals like doctors
and lawyers are also warming up
to body art.
Tuesday's meeting will reveal
if commissioners are too.
The city's Planning Board
passed a revised ordinance May
30 that requires a 250-foot gap
between parlors and libraries,
schools, churches or parks. It
also restricts the number of shops
allowed on the island to 10, and
those shops must be at least 150
feet away from each other.
Most commissioners agree
that regulation is important when
it comes to allowing the shops to
spring up.
The City Commission meets
Tuesday at 6 p.m. at Old City
Hall on Greene Street.

Spottswood Cos,
decides to redo
hotel in phases
By RYAN McCARTHY
Keynoter contributor

Plans for a complete redevel-
opment of the Marathon Holiday
Inn into a Holiday Inn Express
have been tabled by the hotel's
owner, Spottswood Cos.
The 134-room hotel had been
scheduled to close early this
month, but hotel General
Manager Dennis Wardlow said
he was recently told that the hotel
would remain open during a
piecemeal renovation of the
property.
"We informed the staff, and
we should start the renovation
next week," Wardlow said. "We
will stay open while we do one
wing at a time."
Doug Wright, vice president
of hotel operations for
Spottswood Management, had
previously said it was "best to
demolish and start fresh" rather
than do a renovation.
Wardlow says the hotel will
remain a full-service Holiday
Inn, which essentially means a
full-service restaurant on the
premises. Holiday Inn Express
offers only a complimentary con-
tinental breakfast.
Renovations will begin on the
hotel's back building, which is
currently used for employee
housing. Spottswood's other
Middle Keys holding, Faro
Blanco Resort, will be the future
site for employee housing.
"The few we have living
[here] now, we'll move around as
we renovate," Wardlow said.


Staff with Onyx Waste
Services will be at the south end
of Founders Park from 8:30 a.m.
to 12:30 p.m. Thursday and
Friday, and June 9.
The free-disposal program for
hazardous waste is offered once
annually. Proof of Islamorada
residence will be required.
Household hazardous waste


"Some of them will probably try
and find a place in the meantime,
but we want to try and accommo-
date everyone we can."
Wardlow said the Holiday
Inn's rooms would get a com-
plete makeover.
In addition, the hotel tiki bar
will be re-thatched and stabilized
and the hotel's 12 to 15 dock
spaces will be renovated. The
spaces are now used by the Abyss
dive shop, a personal watercraft
rental company and hotel guests
with boats. The personal water-
craft operation will be closing
and the hotel will advertise fol-
lowing renovation for a replace-
ment.

Fines for food

The Slate Department of
Busine,, and Professional
Regulation has increased
the fine for any proven
offense of food misrepre-
sentation at a food ser\ Ice
establishment, raising the
minimum fine from $I250. t,
$5I00 in response to find-
ings of restaurants selling
mislabeled fish products to
consumers.
The move brings BPR's
enforcement in line i !th
those of the Department of
Agriculture and Consumer

the AttorneN General.
BPR Secretary HollI
Benson said. "Floridians
ought to be able to irust
restaurant oi ners, and
ihese increased penalties

"Oui inspectors ha\ e
found some instances of

Dante's,

that includes ~

West, all
attached to
Harbor House,
KeysCaribbean's
new project.



Dante's, others to stay


Development at
Harbor House
site to begin
By PAMELA J. SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor

Key West's Conch Harbor
Marina may have changed hands
recently, but the chief executive
officer for the company that now
owns it says there are no plans for
any major changes.
Craig Hunt, CEO of
KeysCaribbean, a residential


resort development and real
estate company based in Key
West, said he's excited about his
company's purchase of the mari-
na last month.
KeysCaribbean purchased the
complex from Miami-based
Conch Harbor Marina Associates
Ltd. for $14.9 million.
Hunt said the newly acquired
property, which includes the
marina, two restaurants, a park-
ing garage, a swimming pool, and
office/retail space, will offer an
array of services to future resi-


dents and visitors of another
KeysCaribbean venture -
Harbor House.
Slated to open in late 2008,
Harbor House, designed by Key
West architect Peter Pike, will
feature 32 townhouses located
near Conch Harbor on Caroline
Street.
"Now we have docking and
marina facilities to complement
Harbor House," Hunt said.
"From a customer service stand-
point, we know the best way to
get more business is to take care

Disabled veterans struggle


Floridians say red
tape keeps them
from finding aid
Associated Press

A former Marine is develop-
inga program to offer temporary
housing and grocery money to
injured troops when they leave
their military service, fearing that
disabled veterans from Iraq and
Afghanistan will be forgotten
once Memorial Day celebrations
end.
Staff Sgt. Tommy Pearce, 29,
was evacuated from Camp
Fallujah in Iraq in September. He


watched his bank account dip to
$25 as red tape delayed his dis-
ability checks.
Pearce hopes his new group,
One Vet Ahead, will help other
veterans avoid the same difficul-
ty.
"I was used to getting a pay-
check on the first and 15th every
month," said Pearce, who now
lives in Homestead. "When that
lifeline gets cut, you don't know
what to do and you don't know
who to lean on."
Florida is home to 1.8 million
veterans, more than any other
state except California; an esti-
mated 18,000 to 20,000 Florida


veterans are homeless.
The Department of Veterans
Affairs, the Small Business
Administration and various pri-
vate groups try to help veterans
get jobs, counseling and rehabili-
tation. But many vets say navi-
gating the bureaucratic maze can
be daunting.
Brigitte Walker-Echols, of
Riviera Beach, was left partially
paralyzed in 2004 after a mortar
landed next to a mail truck she
was unloading in Baghdad. Her
disability check covers about a
quarter of her previous salary,
and she said she was directed to
three different agencies for help

'No major changes'


HARBOR HOUSE / From 20

of the people affiliating with us."
Hunt said the marina would
continue to be accessible to the
public. He stressed that
KeysCaribbean is honoring all
property leases that were in place
at the time of the sale, and has no
plans to eliminate any businesses
currently operating there. Two
restaurants Dante's and Prime
951 and several charter servic-
es will be unaffected by the
acquisition, Hunt said.
"Some of these charter boat
guys own their own slip, and
those with leases will be hon-
ored," he said. "It's nice to have
charter boat captains there."
Hunt said he has personally
used the Conch Harbor Marina for
years, and although he has been
satisfied with the way the marina
has been run, his company will
take steps to bring it up to
"KeysCaribbean standards."
While he offered no specific
examples of exactly what that
means, he explained that the mari-
na's future clientele will expect
the highest level of service and his
company aims to provide it.
To achieve that goal, Hunt
has brought in new management
for Conch Harbor. Roger


Greene, director of marina oper-
ations for KeysCaribbean, and
general manager Bill Trimble
have taken over the helm at the
marina. According to Hunt,
together the men have 35 years
of marina operations experience.
The duo is also managing
KeysCaiibbean's King's Pointe
Marina on Stock Island, which
will serve as an amenity for
Harbor House residents and vis-
itors as well.
As for the empty office/retail
spaces, on the-property, Hunt
said KeysCaribbean has yet to
develop firm plans for those. He
said he would consider leasing
those quarters especially if
they housed businesses that had
something of value to offer
Harbor House residents as part
of KeysCaribbean's Adventure
Concierge service.
"Our concierge service will
be launched in a big way," Hunt
said. "We want to give you the
opportunity to book quality
adventures you won't find any-
where else.
Hunt said that 11 of the 32
townhouses, which will sell for
between $1.9 million and $3.1
million, are currently under pur-
chase agreements.

covering her mortgage last
month.
"You have all these organiza-
tions that say they want to help
on one side and all these veterans
who need help on the other, but
there's no bridge between them,"
said Walker-Echols, who served
in the Army for 22 years. She
worries that her 19-year-old
daughter, recently deployed to
Iraq, will face similar difficulties
if she is injured.
The chief executive of
Veterans Employment Transition
Services in Miami wants to cre-
ate a one-stop outreach center for
all veteran-related information.
Charles Cutler, a Vietnam veter-
an, said many veterans returning
from deployments in the Middle
East are not prepared to search
for the counseling or employ-
ment programs that could help
them readjust to life at home.
"What we are finding is that


when Johnny comes marching
home, and he gets beyond the
yellow ribbon, he is often suffer-
ing from post-traumatic stress
disorder," Cutler said.
Some veterans worry younger
troops will miss out on tradition-
al military burials, too.
Approximately 85,000 veter-
ans and their dependents are
buried at the Florida National
Cemetery in Bushnell. The
Sumter County Honor Guard
oversees 30 to 40 burials each
month there. But the group says
most of its members are aging
veterans of World War II and
Korea, and it's getting harder for
them to continue volunteering.
"A lot of the Vietnam veterans
are still in the work force. Maybe
when they retire, they'll be out
here volunteering," cemetery
superintendent Bobby Hodges
said.
No burials were scheduled
Monday. Instead, Lt. Gov. Jeff
Kottkamp led the cemetery's
annual Memorial Day ceremony.

Deadline
nears for
vendor spaces
For decades, Keys cooks have
flavored their dishes with tropical
fruits such as mango, papaya and
Key lime gleaned from trees that
grow along the island chain.
From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 30,
these tropical fruits and many
others are to be celebrated at the
annual Florida Keys Tropical
Fruit Fiesta.
The family-friendly festival is
to take place at Key West's
Bayview Park at Truman Avenue
and Eisenhower Drive, with a
focus on fun and sharing "fruit-
ful" knowledge. The event is pro-
duced by the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences with the
Monroe County Cooperative
Extension Service.
Those attending can choose
from hundreds of quality contain-
er-grown fruit trees for sale, com-
pete for prizes in a popular home-
grown fruit contest, attend a fast-
paced fruit auction and solve
plant problems at a bilingual clin-
ic.
Those .eager to learn more
about planting and growing trop-
ical fruit trees can gain insights
from lectures by horticultural
experts from Miami's Fairchild
Tropical Botanical Garden and
the University of Florida.
Admission to all scheduled
events is free.
Those who want to participate
as vendors need to start moving,
as the application deadline is
June 22.
Cost for tree vendors is $200.
Food, craft and sales vendors pay
$100. Nonprofits pay $50 (no
charge if there is nothing for
sale).
When applying, ensure to say
if you need an electricity hookup.
Vendors need to bring their own
extension cords, tents, tables and
chairs.
Food and crafts offered should
relate to tropical fruits or environ-
mental education. In the event of
bad weather, causing the fiesta to
be cancelled or poorly attended,
no refunds will be given.

Keys garden


goes to D.C.


It's among only
20 on display
for the summer
Part of the Key West Tropical
Forest and Garden of Stock Island
will be on display at the foot of
Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.,
for the summer.
The honor was bestowed on 20
U.S. public gardens for a special
. terrace exhibit called "Celebrating
America's Gardens: A Sense of
-Place," at the U.S. Botanic
Garden, which is part of the
Smithsonian Mall.
"This is a grand opportunity to
bring public awareness to over a
quarter of a million people as well
as our Congress and Senate on the
fragile world of the Florida Keys.
Seeing these beautiful specimens
and appreciating their rarity is
what we are all about in the
Keys," says Carolann Sharkey,
chairwoman of the Keys garden.
The D.C. exhibit features 26
species of Keys plants and trees,
many of which are endangered,
and information signs telling
about the biodiversity of the Keys.
The plants and trees encase an
outdoor terrace that provides a
sense of being in a tropical hard-
wood forest. The plant labels
include interesting facts about


how early settlers utilized the
flora in their daily lives. Included
in the exhibit is a hand-built table
made of cured Jamaica dogwood
and tropical almond created by
artist Jack Kepler.


'This is a

grand

opportunity

public

awareness.'

The Key West Botanical
Garden Society is raising money
to pay for the exhibit. Call 296-

Among other public gardens
on display at the Capitol are the

Two chosen as


'greenest' teachers


Council honors
Goldin, Smith
as best of year

Teachers Carrie Goldin at
Key Largo School and Joy
Smith at Key West High
School have been presented
with the Environmental
Education Teacher of the Year
Award for 2007 by the Monroe
County Environmental
Education Advisory Council.
Based on nominations sub-
mitted by fellow teachers, par-
ents and community members,
the council selected one out-
standing elementary/middle
and one outstanding high-
school educator to receive the
award.
Goldin and Smith were each
given a plaque and $300 in
appreciation of their efforts in
educating Monroe County stu-
dents about their environment.
Goldin has a history of
working to integrate knowl-
edge of the environment into
her curriculum and into the
lives of her fourth-graders.
Over the past eight years
she has taken students on
overnight camping trips to
Everglades National Park and
Elliot Key at Biscayne
National Park. The trips center
on environmental education as
it relates to the Everglades and
how important it is to preserve
and protect our wild places.
Last year Goldin and anoth-
er teacher received a grant
from the Florida Keys
National Marine. Sanctuary
and took students to Dry
Tortugas National Park to
experience and appreciate the
delicate balance of the coral
reefs and historical monu-
ments.
Smith seeks ways to instill
a love of nature in her students
by providing them the oppor-


tunity to be
exposed to
the many dif-
ferent crea-
tures found
in the Keys.
SShe has sev-
eral aquari-
L aeums in her
GOLDIN room with
everything
from saltwa-
ter fish to
hermit crabs.
This year

S$5,000 grant
from the
Community
Foundation
of Florida
SMITH Keys for a
project for
her ninth-grade science stu-
dents. The grant funded the
.Leadership in Environ-mental
Conservation and Sustain-abil-
ity program, which worked in
conjunction with Last Stand to
teach students how to live a
sustainable lifestyle in the
Florida Keys.
Key. components were
installing hydroponic green-
houses, techniques for acquir-
ing potable water, alternative
energy sources (solar energy)
and habitat management.
Smith also scheduled a
series of speakers from the
community to talk to her stu-
dents on subjects such as solar
energy and freshwater lenses
found under the Keys.
The council created the
award five years ago and plans
to continue to award two
teachers each year. The organ-
ization is a coalition of envi-
ronmental and educational
groups and interested citizens
throughout Monroe County.

Military families get access


90 million
records released
by Web site
Associated Press

For every generation in the
United States there has been a
war. And with wars come mil-
lions of records that can shed
light on family history, detailing
everything from the color of
soldiers' eyes to what their
neighbors may have said about
them.
Last week, www.ances
try.com was to unveil more
than 90 million U.S. war records
from the first English settlement
at Jamestown in 1607 through
the Vietnam War's end in 1975.
The collection includes the
names and gravestone details of
3.5 million deceased U.S. sol-
diers, including 2,000 who died
in Iraq.
"The history of our families
is intertwined with the history of


our country," said Tim Sullivan,
chief executive of ancestry.com.
"Almost every family has a fam-
ily member or a loved one that
has served their country in the
military."
The records, which can be
accessed free until the anniver-
sary of D-Day on June 6, came
from the National Archives and
Records Administration and
include 37 million images, draft
registration cards from both
world wars, military yearbooks,
prisoner-of-war records from
four wars, unit rosters from the
Marine Corps from 1893
through 1958, and Civil War
pension records, among others.
The popularity of genealogy
in the U.S. has increased steadi-
ly alongside the Internet's
growth. Specialized search
engines on sites like
www.ancestry.com, www.
genealogy.com and www.fa
milysearch.com, along with
general search portals like


Yahoo and Google have helped
fuel interest.
"The Internet has created this
massive democratization in the
whole family history world,"
said Megan Smolenyak, chief
family historian for
Ancestry.com. "It's like a global
game of tag."
Ancestry.com, which is
owned by Generations Network,
spent $3 million to digitize the
military records. It took nearly a
year, including some 1,500
handwriting specialists racking
up 270,000 hours to review the
oldest records.
The 10-year-old Provo, Utah-
based company doesn't have
every U.S. military record. Over
the past four centuries, some
have been lost or destroyed.
Some records remain classified.
However, this is the first time
a for-profit Web site is featuring
this many military records as
part of a $100 million invest-
ment in what Sullivan says is the
largest genealogy Web site with
900,000 paying subscribers.

Gecko sticks out, makes an impression


Or rather,
it gets stuck in
a wad of foam
This is a gecko story to beat
most gecko stories.
On May 14, Maya Totman
from Florida Keys Animal
Rescue on Big Pine Key
received a call from Robert Allen
regarding an injured lizard. He
said the lizard got stuck in foam
he had applied to close entries
for small animals in his house on
Summerland Key.
Apparently, this gecko tried to
exit the house through the foam
- and the foam hardened before
it could get completely through.
Allen had to remove the exterior
wall to get it out.
He then put the lizard in a box
and brought it to Totman's facili-
ty. To her surprise it was a Tokay
gecko and it was really stuck.
It took quite a while for
Totman to remove the foam -
especially from the toe pads -

with help from Allen and Alan
Dunston.
The gecko was all cleaned up
and recovering in Animal
Rescue's facility on Big Pine. It
will be adopted out.

in the pet trade and often
released to control cockroaches.

New model gives


hope to forecasters


The goal is
better tracking
of intensity
By MATT SEDENSKY
Associated Press


Meteorologists have spent
decades drastically improving
predictions on where a looming
hurricane could hit warnings
that potentially drive millions of
people from their homes. Now,
they aim to better determine how
powerful those storms actually
will be.
Forecasters are debuting their
new Hurricane Weather
Research and Forecasting model
next month which, for the first
time, will take into account most
data from within the storm and
use it in real time to -better deter-
mine its strength.
"The processes at the inner
core are not well informed and
not well predicted," senior hurri-
cane specialist Richard Pasch
said at the National Hurricane
Center. "With the HWRF, we're
hoping that we can analyze that
middle core."
Until now, experts have
mostly relied on the
Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
Laboratory model which, like
those before it, mainly depended
on initial storm information
paired with historical data for
similar storms.
The higher-resolution new
model will consider conditions
over the oceans that have never
been plugged into models
before.
It could take years, and some
tinkering, for the new model to
realize its full potential. But
forecasters hope the result will
be a greater understanding of
storms like hurricanes Charley
and Wilma, which grew substan-
tially stronger in a matter of
hours.
Wilma went from being a
tropical storm to the strongest
Atlantic hurricane on record in a
day.
The hope is the model will
better predict the strength of a
hurricane when it eventually
makes landfall and ultimately
save lives.
The National Hurricane


Center has cut its average fore-
cast error on storm tracks in half
over the past 15 years. Average
track errors last year were about
55 miles on one-day forecasts,
about 111 miles on two-day pre-
dictions and 169 miles on three
days' ahead.
In the same period, two-day
forecasts for the intensity of all
tropical cyclones improved from
an average of about 18 mph to
about 17 mph.
"We've made those improve-
ments in track but we've made
little improvement in forecasting
intensity," Pasch said. "It was
what the science allows. We
understand more about hurri-
cane track than intensity."
With the HWRF, that should
change. Information from hurri-
cane hunter aircraft, satellites
and other sources will immedi-
ately relay wind conditions in
and around the storm, tempera-
ture, pressure, humidity and
other oceanic and atmospheric
conditions and analyze them to
better determine the track and
intensity.
Naomi Surgi, who coordi-
nates the hurricane modeling
program at the National Center
for Climate Prediction in Camp
Springs, Md., said using real-
time data provides the most
accurate forecasts.
"You have to with as much
accuracy as possible describe
what that hurricane is doing
now," she said, adding HWRF
shows great promise. "It's get-
ting the storm right, it's getting
the ocean underneath the storm
right, it's getting the environ-
ment around the storm right."
The model has been in devel-
opment since 2001. Surgi said
while improvements will begin
the day after it goes operational
next month, the model is expect-
ed to be used for the next 10 to
15 years.
Forecasters will also test a
new radar technique that allows
meteorologists to determine
wind speeds and barometric
pressures in all parts of a storm
every few minutes, not the sev-
eral hours it takes to get readings
from hurricane hunter aircraft,
said Colin McAdie, a Hurricane
Center meteorologist.

Hoops hero makes his return


Keys' Sutter
relives days as
top star in Italy
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keyrioter.com

Sardinia does .not forget its
heroes, John Sutter discovered on
his return to the scenic Italian
island.
For a metnorable week in May,
Sutter stopped being Islamorada's
parks director and returned to his
role as the best player during the
best years of Brill Cagliari,
Sardinia's team in the Italian pro
basketball league.
"It was overwhelming," Sutter
said. "It went way beyond what
anybody could
have expected....
It's unbelie~ able

years ago.
From 19"3
to 1979, Sunrer
was the lone

Brill Cagliari

the Caglian
Stars).
He was
the team',
leading
scorer for
s i x
straight
years,
with an
aver-

around 30
points per game and a record
game of 52 points.
"Make no mistake, I took a lot
of attempts," Sutter laughed. "I
believed in shooting to get hot,
shooting to stay hot."
During his time with Brill, the
club went from being the doormat
of the 14-team Italian league to a
Final Four playoff contender.
"For a team from Sardinia, that
was unheard of," Sutter said. "The
people had kind of a provincial
pride in the team, and this formed
a real bond."
In May, Sardinia hosted Ten


Years of Great Basketball, a week
of events commemorating Brill's
peak years from 1968 to 1978 (the
team has since folded). Nearly 30
former players returned.
The official poster and pro-
gram cover captures a shaggy-
haired John Sutter artfully drop-
ping the ball through the net on a
lay-up.
"It's kind of strange seeing
people walk around wearing your
picture on a T-shirt," said Sutter,
an All-American at Tulane
University and a two-year NBA
veteran.
Unsure what kind of welcome
awaited him on his return to
Sardinia, he stepped off the jet to
find a crowd of photographers and
television crews.

The Italians were thrilled to

"Even though 28 years have
gone by, anyone who set foot in
[the Palazzetto dello Sport,
Cagliari's basketball arena] would

tive Code. The project is
not exempt from permit-
ting procedures. The De-
partment has determined
that a construction permit

A person whose substan-
tial interests are affected

days of publication of this
notice. Petitioner shall
mail a copy of the petition
to the applicant at the ad-
dress indicated above at
the time of filing: Failure
to file a petition within this
time period shall consti-
tute a waiver of any right
such person may have to
request an administrative
determination (hearing)
under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida
Statutes, or to intervene
in this proceeding and
participate as a party to it.
Any subsequent inter-
vention will be only at the
discretion of the presid-
ing officer upon the filing
of a motion in compliance
with rule 28-5.207, F.A.C.

cant's name and ad-
dress, the Department

ceived notice of the De-
partment's action or pro-
posed action; (c) A state-

ests are affected by the
Department's action or
proposed action; (d) A
statement of the material
facts disputed by Peti-
tioner, if any; (e) A state-
ment of facts which peti-
tioner contends warrant

lief sought by petitioner,

tion petitioner wants the
Department to take with
respect to the Depart-
ment's action or pro-
posed action.

administrative hearing
process is designed to
formulate agency action.
Accordingly, the Depart-
ment's final action may
be different from the posi-
tion taken by it in this No-
tice. Persons whose sub-
stantial interests will be
affected by any decision
of the Department with
regard to the application
have the right to petition
to become a party to the
proceeding, in accord-
ance with the require-
ments set forth above.

Jessica money
Machetta raised from
food sales
and rounds of golf, a raffle, and
live entertainment provided by
Moose, Terry Cassidy and the

Those who were there were
witness to how Keys residents
band together in the face of
tragedy, and although with heavy
hearts, were touched by the
camaraderie. Those who weren't
but would still like to give to the
cause can do so through the
Southernmost Hockey Club.

Last year on Memorial Day,
my family was doing the same
thing as the Smiths. Enjoying the


flat-calm waters and balmy air.
Claire free-dove down to the
coral heads for the first time. It
was a beautiful day in and on the
water.
As we were cleaning up the
boat, getting ready to head
home, Claire said, "Macy just
fell."
Sure enough, there was Macy,
bobbing beneath the surface. We
pulled her up and all was well,


but it was a solid reminder of
what can happen in the blink of
an eye.
With school out and our kids
growing more each day, let's all
be reminded to keep an eye on
our own as well as everyone
else's.
With kids programs through-
out the Keys, there's plenty to
keep the little ones occupied.
Many offer scholarships for peo-
ple with financial need, and at
least one program is offering
incentive to students who have a
good grade card to show for
their efforts.
Today, the Sea King chatter is
enrolling children for a Monday
through Friday fish camp that
teaches knot tying, rig making,
tackle maintenance, net throw-
ing, environmental awareness
and more. Kids with a B average
or above qualify for a drawing
that gives away a free week of
camp.
Be at Driftwood Marina, mile
marker 54.5, at noon today. The
,'drawing is at 1 p.m. Call 289-

Holowacz heads up Studios


A after its first year, The
Studios of Key West has
a new director, a new
expanded board and a strategic
plan.
The "artists community," as
they call themselves, has been
controversial from the begin-
ning, when the Armory
Building on White Street
became its home, unsettling the
children's gymnastic group that
had transformed the historic
structure over the last decade
into a young athletes training
facility.
There was some disappoint-
ment in the first year of pro-
gramming. Quality was not in
question; the artists and lecturers
were all top notch, but The
Studios remained aloof from the
majority of the artists in town.
The new director may be a
catalyst for change. Eric
Holowacz has been on the job
just over a month, but he has
generated dozens of ideas for
The Studios and the town.
The newly expanded board,
headed up by Bob Muens,
recently completed a session
with a strategic planning facilita-
tor and now Holowacz is tasked
with creating an operational plan
to implement their strategies.
Holowacz smiles a lot, listens
a lot and makes easy eye contact.
"I like meeting with artists,"
he said.
His background is all about
arts administration. He comes to
Key West from New Zealand,
where for five years he worked
as a community arts coordinator
in Wellington. One of his proj-
ects there, "Opening Notes," pro-
vided a CD of local music, rang-


ing from
chamber
.. quartet to
S.A. Maori
;; choir, free
f "i. ,, to every
baby bom
at the area
hospital.
f With a
mild cli-
l. mate, a
S reputation
Judi Bradford as the
"most
'fully wired' city in.the most
'fully wired' country in the
world," a Maori-drenched histo-
ry and an 80 percent European
(of a regional population of
400,000) culture, the capital nur-
tured a complex ethos. It was
also the venue for the "Lord of
Rings" filming.
His unique career path started
in South Carolina with the
State Arts Commission, then
the international Spoleto
Festival USA in Charleston,
S.C.
Noticing an incongruous
Trappist monastery in the area
he signed up for a month's
"Layman's Guest Program."
"What I learned was getting
up at 3 a.m., going to chapel
seven times a day, chanting and
grading 30,000 eggs a day."
The group supported itself
with chicken farming perhaps
laying the groundwork (or
padding the nest) for later Key
West duty.
After brief stint as manager
and visual effects director for a
touring rock band, Holowacz
was back in South Carolina as
director of the Beaufort arts

council.
"I loved the small town set-
ting and working with artists,"
he said. New Zealand beckoned
after that; now Key West.
Holowacs will oversee the
second round of studio allot-
ments this summer and has
hopes for a residency program
that may have collaborative
components, may involve proj-
ects with local artists and would
weave cultural figures from the
rest of the world into Key West.
He sees the possibility of tap-
ping visiting artists for local
projects that produce work that
"touches Key West and stays
here." Thoughts of this island as
a hub for northern and Latin
American artists pepper his
- enthusiasm.
He has had experience build-
ing partnerships between the arts
and Other enterprises to further
cultural goals.
"We need more voices here,"
he said. In Wellington, we "lis-
tened to what the artists wanted."
"I'm going to try to make the
programming here speak for us,"
he said of The Studios. "We
have a bit of momentum, some
resources, a sound physical
plant, and good board leadership.
I want to use that for something
good for the people and the cul-
ture of Key West."

dose of hops and top-ferment-
ing yeast combine to create an
intensely flavored, thick and
creamy dark beer. It has a
touch of sweetness that can be
lost (or turned bitter) if the
beer is served too cold. Drink it
cool, not icy cold.
Full Sail Brewing Company,
located 60 miles east of
Portland along the Columbia
River Gorge, has three beers
you'll find scattered among
Keys restaurants.
The Full Sail LTD Series is
a limited edition, small batch
group of beers made from tra-
ditional lager recipes. Bottling
No. 1 is a smooth lager that's
richer than a pale ale but not as
intense as a dark brew. Bottling
No. 2 is lighter in color and
taste and has a crisper taste.
If you lean toward Amber
Bock and the occasional
Guinness Stout, you'll proba-
bly favor the LTD No. 1.
Full Sail IPA (India Pale
Ale) is perhaps the perfect
summer beer: powerfully
hopped, with a spicy flavor that
is both bitter (from the hops)


and sweet (from the malt).
If there's a soon-to-be
"world famous" beer from
Oregon, it's must be Full Sail's
Pale Ale. Malts and hops work
together to deliver a very clean,
refreshing flavor with hints of
pine and caramel. A bit lighter
than the IPA and much lighter
on the palate than the LTD
No. 1.
Whitbread, which has been
brewing beer in London since
1742, has a Pale Ale that's very
American in style straight-
ahead, light flavors, hints of
bread and fruit, dry finish.
A better choice (for me) is
the Mackeson Triple Stout,
made by Whitbread. It's dark
almost opaque and has a slight-
ly chocolate flavor. Not a beer
for hop lovers, but a sweet
stout that's very smooth. A
stout the ladies might like.
Plato said, "He was a wise
man who invented beer." Might
be time to try some of his dif-
ferent inventions.

Red Elvises alert!


Two days and

L'Attitudes Contributor

ust be thankful. If you lived
in one of the cities on The
Red Elvises' nationwide tour,
you might have to pay a cover
charge of $10 or $15 just to see
them. But this week you can
enjoy the same show at
Marathon's. Hurricane Grill or
Key West's historic Green Parrot
Bar for nada.
What's that, you say? You are
one of the handful of music
lovers who are unfamiliar with
this gang of political refugees
from Siberia? Well, here's your
chance to update your knowl-
edge of the zaniest music genre
to come along in a long time.
Consider this a free course in
Music Appreciation.
No, the Red Elvises are not a
group of Elvis impersonators
dressed in red costumes. They
are a group of Russian rock-and-
rollers (written "Rokenrol") who
have blended the traditional
Eastern European music of their
homeland with good old
American rockabilly and surf
music.
But don't expect a straight
answer from these guys. Their
show is full of tongue-in-cheek
humor, billing themselves as
"America's No. 1 singing sweet-
hearts", "Your favorite rockenrol
band", or "Kick-ass rock 'n' roll
from Siberia," described as
"ideal for beer guzzling and

dancing 'til you drop." They say
their musical influences include
"Elvis Presley and his wife
Priscilla, Chuck Berry, the Spice
Girls, and speeches by Comrade
Fidel Castro."
This gang of Siberian surf
rockers was formed after the fall
of the Soviet Union by two
Russians, singer/songwriter Igor
Yuzov and balalaika player Oleg
Bemov. The two met during
Russia's Peace Walk and then
played together in a Russian
folk-rock band called Limpopo
before coming to the U.S. in '95.
That huge red instrument
Oleg plays is more than a bass
guitar, by the way. It's an electri-
fied, three-string, contrabass bal-
alaika, a traditional Russian folk
instrument that Oleg plays like
an upright bass, giving the band
a distinctive look to go with their
crazy "ventures and vodka" out-
fits.
Home base for the Elvises is
Southern California, not Siberia,
and band members have changed
over the years, with Igor and
Oleg anchoring the top spots.
Since the band's last visit, the
Red Elvises have expanded their
sound and their lineup.
"We've got two girls in the
band now," Yuzov said, "one


playing accordion and one play-
ing guitar and banjo."
If you visit their equally zany
Web site, www.redelvises
.com, notice their tour schedule,
a whirlwind road trip of the
good old USA that would tire
most other bands. They have
earned a reputation as one of the
hardest working bands in show
business.
If you would like a preview
of their unique sound, check out
the video of their concert in
Moscow's Red Square, http://
video.redelvises.net/Live8.w
mv. They have produced 11 CDs
and written countless songs, with
names like "Grooving to the
Moscow Beat," "Surfing in

Concert evening fea-
turing Gordon Ross,
Vicki Roush, Skipper
Kripitz and Michael Fauss
will bring down the curtain
on the Waterfront Playhouse
season in Key West.
The eclectic musical treat
is Sunday, a one-night-only
show, at 8:30 p.m.
Cocktails will be avail-
able throughout the evening
and a post-show reception
follows under the stars in the
sculpture garden in front of
the theater.
"We're very excited to
have been asked to close out
the Waterfront season," Ross
said. "This show is both inti-
mate and fun and brings out
the best in us all."
Jazz, love songs, classics,
and a bit of decadence com-
bine for the concert.
Roush was a highlight in
the original Red Barn pro-
duction of "Nunsense" and
appeared at all Key West
stages, including a sold-out
solo concert at the
Waterfront several seasons
ago.

Ross, a 37-year resident
of the Keys, has also
appeared in "Whoop-Dee-
Doo!," "The Boys Next
Door," and most recently as
Officer Barrel in the
Waterfront Playhouse pro-
duction of "Urinetown, the

Kripitz is regarded as one
of the best rhythm/percus-
sionists in town, and his
busy schedule includes an
array of Key West produc-
tions and events, including
giving much of his time to
children's music programs in
the area.
Accompanist Fauss made
his Key West debut at the
Waterfront Playhouse as
musical director for "Naked
Boys Singing" in 2006 and
most recently was the musi-
cal director for "Urinetown."
Sunday's concert will

musical numbers as these
four musical friends reunite
for the show.

Francis book hits shelves


Midwest to the Keys


Local author
releases killer
thriller novel

F oot reflexologist Keely
Moreno and her boyfriend,
P.I. Punt Ashford, jump
headlong into danger on the hun
for a killer. They go against all
odds to solve this 25-year-old
murder to help Keely's longtime
devoted cleaning lady, Maxine
Jackson.
Maxine's son Randy is deter-
mined to find the long-ago killed
of his girlfriend. Unlawfully
imprisoned for 20 years, Rand\
has been released into a soc ic-
ty that refuses to hire
an ex-con even
though, through DNA
evidence, he's been
exonerated. He's also
bitter because he's
received no money to
compensate for his years
behind bars.
Ostracized, Randy is w el-
come only in mother's home
and he's determined to find
the murderer and even the
score. Keely and Punt must
snare the killer before the situa-
tion turns violent. Punt get,
Randy a temporary job cret% ing
at sea on a shrimp boat while hi
and Keely investigate.
In trying to find the killer.
Keely is injured, kidnapped anc
abandoned in wilderness tcrrito
ry where she becomes pre\ lor
alligators, iguanas, and snakes,:
well as for her kidnapper. Her
courage and steely determination
to live bring "Cold-case Killer"
to its dramatic conclusion.

About the author
Francis was born in
Lawrence, Kansas, and moved


with her par-
ents to
Olathe
where, at an
a early age, she
frequented
the public
library and
formed a life-
lnny hnhit of

ing
to her family
discuss local court
cases and she sat in on many
courtroom trials that involved
her law-enforcement father.
One trial involved a man
headed for prison who was
released when her father pre-
sented evidence that exonerat-
ed him. Concern about wrong-
fully accused and imprisoned


convicts has stayed with her
through the years.
She has lived in
Marshalltown, Iowa, for 55
years, spending winter months
in her home on Big Pine Key
writing for publication. Her
writing has received awards
from the Florida Historical
Society, the Short Mystery
Fiction Society, the Key West
Writer's Guild, a nomination
from Western Writers of
America, and a place on New
York's Books for the Child
list.
Her recent mystery novels
take readers to Key West and
the Florida Keys where she
and her husband spend their
w inters.
"'Ho% do you solve a cold
case in a hot town? If you're
in Ke\ West, ask Keely
Moreno for help," said
Christine Dunn, administra-
tor at the Monroe County
Public Library in Key
\\est. "Though she wants
to enjoy the Southernmost
City's sultry breezes,
tropical sunsets and lazy
ccrV sun-filled days, she
finds herself pulled
'.'-. into a decades' old
murder case... Though
SKeely came to Key
West to run a reflex-
ology service in the
quaint waterfront
area known as Old
Town, her typical-
SI kooky Key West clients
pull her back into detective
work...
"Will Keely discover who
did murder Dyanne Darby
over twenty years earlier, or
will her amateur sleuthing rose
the demons from her past?
Dorothy Francis has created a
tale full of authentic Key West
characters and recognizable
Key West locations which is
intriguing and suspenseful."

Cover story
Francis had certain ideas for
the book cover art. but told
L'Attitudes when the artist told-
her the story of why he would
like to use a dive knife, she
agreed immediately.
Alan Clark, cover artist,
told her the stort of Bunvan
Webb:
Webb was a superior classi-
cal guitarist who had studied
with the best and played
Carnegie Hall. Guitar concerts


were written for him to per-
form. Whether he was playing
the guitar or not, his expres-
sive hands seemed to stay in
motion. This was a charismatic
man with a lot of energy and
interests.
-"My father met him in the
Nashville Guitar Society and
then brought him into our
home as guest many times for
dinners and guitar music,"
Clark said. "After I moved to
San Francisco to study art and
had been there a few years,
Bunyan moved out there to be
close to family. We got togeth-
er and he gave me guitar les-
sons. I wasn't any good at it.
but it was an excuse to get
together."
Clark became invol ed in
scuba and free diving with
Webb along the California
coast, as Webb \was a scuba
instructor and asked him to
assist occasionally with a
class.
"We were free diving in
Sonoma County California, at
the base of high cliffs when he
became tangled in bull kelp
strands." Clark said. "By the
time I reached him, he w as
unconscious. I had no dive
knife and had to get the one
strapped to his ankle in order
to cut him free."
"I hauled him to a nearby
rock jutting from the surf. His
hands were blue. They were
still, no longer expressive.
Bun an's life was gone. I
never saw him again.'"
"Shortly after that day I
bought a dive knife. I never
had cause to use it until I need-
ed a model for the cover of
Dorothy Francis' mystery
novel, 'Cold-Case Killer.' It
brought back some unpleasant
memories, but many more
pleasant ones of Bunyan
Webb."
