A salary, dispute could cost
Mon:rroe Count, one of its most
. ial pla'rs at an inopportune
moment.
Budget Director Sal Zappulla
says he is considering resigning
at a time when local government
is frantically looking to expertise
like Zappulla's to pull it through
a rough budget season.
"I was not given my raise, and
I'm thinking of turning in my
resignation because of it,"
Zappulla told the Keynoter
Friday after calling the county
commissioners to express his
frustration.
Zappulla, who earns $92,000
annually, says County Admin-
istrator Tom Willi denied a raise,
citing budget constraints.
Zappulla, who compiled last
year's $373 million county budg-
et, says other division directors
are paid better and have less
experience.

evidence obtained during the
investigation establishes that
there is reasonable cause to
believe that a violation of the
statute occurred," investigator


Federico Costales wrote in a let-
ter to County Administrator Tom
Willi and obtained by the
Keynoter.
McCoy's former aide, Celeste
Bruno, filed the complaint in
October alleging, Costales wrote,


that McCoy "told sexually
explicit stories, jokes and sexual
comments on a daily basis."
In addition, Costales wrote,
Bruno "was retaliated against
after she refused to comply with
sexual advances."
The letter, dated May 17, gave
the county 15 days to respond.

Anglers fish for rights


More than 100
attend 'Glades
planning session
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The word "challenges" came
up frequently as Everglades
National Park Superintendent


Dan Kimball outlined plans to
rewrite rules covering most of
Florida Bay Thursday.
One of the first challenges
.seems to be getting through a
series of seven public work-
shops to hear initial reactions.
Sport anglers and backcoun-
try guides counted for most of
the crowd of more than 100 that
turned out Thursday in Key


Largo to voice concerns and
opinions about draft proposals.
"Leave it alone," said
Rodney Barreto, a part-time
Key Largo resident and fre-
quent bay fisherman. "Make
some small changes if they're
needed, but they're talking
about some extreme changes."
Barreto also is chairman of
the Florida Fish and Wildlife

EVERGLADES / From 1

Conservation Commission the
state's top rule-making agency
for marine regulation.
Guides protested suggested
proposals that could prevent
powerboat access to waters less
than 3 feet deep a vast area
covering most of Florida Bay.
"That's a whole lot of territo-
ry," said John Keller, a guide for
30 years. "A lot of water."
An even larger crowd greeted
park staff in Everglades City,
where the Wednesday session
occasionally turned raucous,
according to a Naples Daily
News report.
Everglades staff returns on
Tuesday for workshops at 5 and
6:30 p.m. at Holiday Isle Resort,
mile marker 84 in Islamorada.
In opening remarks Thursday,
Kimball stressed the first major
rewriting of Everglades manage-
ment and rules in nearly three
decades has not reached any con-
clusions. A set of draft rules will
be forwarded in mid-2008, and
likely not approved until mid-
2009.
"We have to look'at the full
range of alternatives," Kimball
said, explaining four scenarios
presented.
They range from Alternative
A, which would change nothing,
to Alternative D, which stresses
preservation through measures
such as banning boat motors in
the bay's 3-foot depths.
Boat groundings and bottom-
scarring "are issues we need to
address with this plan," the
superintendent said.
"Ultimately, we can pick.and
choose" from proposals and sug-
gestions, Kimball said. "We have
heard loud and clear some of the
things that people don't like."
Other proposals:
An Everglades boat permit
to prove the operator understands
the difficulties of navigating
Florida Bay.
A ban on boats larger than
24 feet. "It's boats larger than 24
that tend to get into trouble,"
Kimball said. "And 98 percent of
our [permitted fishing] guides
have boats smaller than 24 feet."
Closing some areas to
power boating to allow more of a
wilderness experience for kayak-
ers and canoers. "We have heard
from a number of paddling
groups," Kimball said.
Kimball closed his 25-minute

Comments from some ot the

Thursday in Kel Largo:
Sand\ Moret. Islamorada

about some of the things [the
park is proposing] like idle-
speed zones or polling- or pad-
dling-only zones. But they
should be ba-ed on the contours

ment, like flares.."

presentation by taking only one
question, then directing people to
write comments on large paper
tablets or speak one of 18 park
staffers in attendance.
That did not sit well with
anglers like Jim Trice of
Islamorada, whose effort to craft
an "Alterative E" drew earlier
praise from Kimball.
Longtime Keys guide Bill
Kelly agreed, "There are more

fine."
Lain Goodwin. Key

four for three da\ s. \ ho sta\ ed

Zappulla airs concerns


BUDGET / From 1

"He is way too concerned
with everybody else," Willi said.
"I feel he is well compensated.
He requested a raise several
months ago. He was told to justi-
fy it and the ball has been in his
court."
"I'm just thinking out loud
right now," Zappulla said. "I cer-
tainly would never leave the
county where it would cause the
county to flounder."
It's a tense budget season,
with the Legislature pulling
together a special session starting
Tuesday to explore ways to cut
local property tax collections.
Zappulla says he is creating two
parallel budgets to be fully pre-
pared for any decisions out of
Tallahassee.
"It's my job to keep the budg-
et in order with the chief financial
officer, not the administrator,"
Zappulla said, explaining that his
budgeting moves ultimately have
to comply with requirements set
out by County Clerk Danny
Kolhage, not Willi.
Over the past several months,
Willi and Kolhage have not seen
eye to eye on budget issues. In
January, Kolhage sent out a
scathing memo telling Willi that


county reserve funds were pre-
cariously low.
Willi faulted Zappulla's
"interpersonal skills" as part of
the reason he has not been forth-
coming with a raise, noting that
Zappulla has been written up sev-
eral times in recent months for
losing his temper will fellow
department heads.
"I don't like losing any
employees, but certainly not the
budget director," Commissioner
George Neugent said. "We've
lost a tremendous amount of
institutional knowledge in a long
list of senior staffers."
Neugent listed former Budget
Director Sheila Barker, Growth
Management directors Ty
Symroski and Tim McGarry and
Planner Director Marlene
Conaway, all of whom resigned
or retired within the past three
years.,
Zappulla was named to head
his department in 2003. He
worked for Kolhage's office for
five and a half years prior to that.
In recent weeks, Willi dis-
missed Technical Services
Director Mickey Baker without
cause at the tail end of a one-year
probation. Baker has gone on to
lodge his complaints against
Willi in an ongoing blog.

"It's the EEOC's job to try and
settle cases," Assistant County
Attorney Bob Shillinger said.
"Our response was that we
haven't seen anything that war-
rants a settlement yet."
Bruno worked as McCoy's
aide for more than a year before
filing the charge.
She transferred briefly, to
work as an aide for
Commissioner Dixie Spehar
where, Costales wrote, "she was
subsequently forced to resign
after the county failed to provide
her with a safe working environ-
ment."
While Bruno was working for
Spehar, felon Milo Reese came
into the office a number of times,
eventually leading Bruno to set
off a silent alarm. Reese had
returned to the Keys after serving
time for stealing an airplane in
Marathon and landing it in Cuba.
Shillinger said the letter,


which threatened "court enforce-
ment alternatives" if the county
does not come to a settlement, is
just part of the process.
"They haven't filed suit,"
Shillinger said.
McCoy has maintained his
innocence since first learning of
the complaint.
"I haven't done a thing," he
told the Keynoter shortly after the
charges were filed. McCoy was
unavailable for comment Friday.
Bruno's attorney, Patrice De
Lorenzo, was also unavailable for
comment.
According to the federal Civil
Rights Act of 1964, "Unwelcome
sexual advances, requests for
sexual favors, and other verbal or
physical conduct of a sexual
nature constitute sexual harass-
ment when this conduct explicit-
ly or implicitly affects an individ-
ual's employment, unreasonably
interferes with an individual's
work performance, or creates an
intimidating, hostile, or offensive
work environment."

And EOC options
on the table
for Middle Keys
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County
Commission needs to find a
way to cut $20 million out of
capital expenditures, but the
cuts won't include closing
down the Marathon court-
house.
A roomful of attorneys and
judges, including Monroe
County Chief Judge Sandra
Taylor, were assured the judici-
ary would remain in Marathon
during commission budget
workshop Wednesday in Key
West.
"We should have a nod of
the heads that we will commit
to have a functioning judiciary
in Marathon," Commissioner
Sonny McCoy said.
"I know none of you were
here when 15 years ago we
raised this same issue," Taylor
said, "and got everybody nod-
ding their head."
The proposal from County
Administrator Tom Willi to
close the courthouse to save
money was shelved. Instead,
commissioners said they would
spend money to try to upgrade
the aging courthouse.
However, Commissioner
George Neugent asked,
"Where's the money coming
from? I've always been told
that's an empty promise if you
say you're going to do it and
don't have the money."
Monroe County Judge Ruth
Becker is based in the
Marathon courthouse.
"It's an insult and indignity
to belong to a co-equivalent
branch of government and
have to come groveling for
funding," she said. "We cannot
fulfill our constitutional obli-
gations without counting on
you all to do it."
While the commissioners
were being asked to find ways
to delay capital projects
already underway, Willi rec-
ommended going forward. with
a request for proposals explgr-
ing a possible joint venture in


Marathon.
"Staff was approached by a
developer who had an idea,
who'd love to build a hotel at
the Marathon and Key West"
airports, Willi said. "It's a new
concept to the county. If we
build a new hotel, we could
build a joint-use facility" that
would include an emergency
operations center.
The current EOC is com-
mission chambers at the
Marathon Government Center.
The room is transformed into a
communications hub for
numerous agencies when a
hurricane approaches.
Willi said there are a lot of
plusses to the hotel proposal,
including handing off the cost
of building beds and kitchen
facilities to a private develop-
er. Those facilities would be
used by emergency personnel
in case of a disaster.
"How can we add some-
thing new until we eliminate or
push back some" of the proj-
ects already underway? Com-
missioner Sylvia Murphy
asked.
Willi likened the process to
throwing a bunch of ingredi-
ents into a blender and seeing
what comes out in later budget
sessions.
Neugent suggested looking
at the Sheriff's Office hangar
or the under-construction
Mosquito Control District
building at the Marathon air-
port for space for an EOC.
In the past, the county and
city of Marathon had discussed
a joint EOC at that- airport. The
talks went nowhere, and
Marathon is building its own,
based at a new fire station now
being built.
Willi said up to $14 million
to offset the $20 million capital
shortfall could be in the county
coffers by the end of the fiscal
year. That includes a possible
$11 million contract with the
state Department of Environ-
mental Protection for sewers.
And if the commission accepts
a $3.1 million offer on the
county-owned Hickory House
property on Stock Island, that
money would go toward the
capital shortfall, Willi said.

Keys Opinion


Airport hotel idea

already a non-starter

"Way out in left field"
Definition: Out of touch, eccentric, odd; also misguided.

We think that last word applies to Wednesday's surprise pro-
posal for a hotel development at Florida Keys Marathon Airport.
County Administrator Tom Willi told his bosses about the idea
during a budget workshop in which commissioners also learned
the county faces a potential $20 million shortfall in capital
money for things already in the pipeline.
So you can see the connection, right?
County is running out of money for big projects; developer
agrees to build an airport hotel with room for a county emer-
gency operations center.
County gets someone else to pay for a new EOC?
Oh, and when hotel guests evacuate, then EOC staff could stay
in the rooms and get midnight snacks from the hotel kitchen?
We're not making this up. This is what the county commis-
sioners were told.
While on the subject of make-believe, wonder how the Federal
Aviation Administration would feel about a multi-story hotel
alongside Marathon's runway?
The city of Marathon ran into some stiff headwinds on the
height of its new fire house, which has an emergency operations
center big enough to house just city honchos.
There was talk, you may remember, about Marathon and the
county collaborating over a joint-use building that would
accommodate the fire department plus include an EOC to house
county and city operations.
But those talks went nowhere. Sort of like the talk about a joint
city-county effort for a new library, or utilizing the county's
Marathon Government Center as a possible city hall.
In today's Keynoter, you'll see a suggestion from
Commissioner George Neugent that Willi explore an EOC joint
use with the Sheriff's Office hangar or the under-construction
Mosquito Control District building at the north end of Florida
Keys Marathon Airport.
We doubt the hangar could withstand a big blow and it's like-
ly too late to change the Mosquito Control building to accom-
modate a county EOC. Great idea just a tad late.
The only idea not out of left field at Wednesday's meeting
came from Commissioner Sylvia Murphy.
After listening to the litany of woes on capital funds versus
projects already committed, she asked the question that most in
the hall and watching on TV wanted to shout:
"How can we add something new until we eliminate or push
back some?"
Indeed.

Where's Emergency Management in EOC discussions?


EDITOR:
Regarding the discussion about a new com-
bined emergency operations center and hotel at
Florida Keys Marathon Airport at Wednesday's
County Commission budget workshop:
What's most interesting in the discussion is
that the perspective of the county Division of
Emergency Management has not even been
mentioned. Since this is their bailiwick,
shouldn't their position be at least solicited?
And why didn't County Administrator Tom
Willi say if he has even spoken to Emergency
Management about this?
It is disingenuous for Mr. Willi to speak of
Emergency Management matters as an expert.
If the County Commission wants correct infor-
mation, better to ask someone who is trained in
emergency management.
At some point, someone please ask Mr.
Willi this question: Monroe County has many
mandated training and drill requirements. How
would the frequent required training fit into the
hotel's scheduling?
Does the potential hotelier know that all
emergency operations centers get used a lot
more than just in emergencies? Will Mr. Willi
have the hotel evacuate its guests for all train-
ing sessions?
Also, since this is an airport-situated activi-


ty, how long will it be before Cay Clubs' name
is associated with this plan?
With all the immediate financial issues
(crises?) facing the county, this EOC discus-
sion belongs way down on the reality list
(remember the Vandenberg artificial reef
planned for off Key West, and how that grew
legs, and now it's the county that's sinking
instead of the Vandenberg.) Also disingenuous
is Mr. Willi referring to a 1-penny offset from
the bed tax as if it's a done deal.
The builder who "approached" Mr. Willi
and offered to build a hotel/EOC on county
property is a friend of our mayor.
Lastly, the placing of some items discussed
Wednesday is curious. As the commissioners
first sat, they were handed a big stack of budg-
et information. And less than an hour later,
they were asked to consider some of the con-
tents.
The appearance is that Mr. Willi manipu-
lates what the commission sees, and considers,
today. And that planning is designed to wear
them out.
To quote Mr. Willi from his remarks at the
meeting: "...And it's all just politics, and we
know it...."

No one has the right to get rezoned


EDITOR:
I sick and tired of hearing all this blather
about the problems with keeping trailer parks
as affordable housing. It should be obvious
to everyone that the real driving force is the
ease with which developers can obtain zon-
ing changes.
If a developer realized that rezoning was
not an option, he would not offer huge sums
of money to purchase these properties and,
hence, the owners would not be selling them.
Since the statutes clearly state that zoning
changes should only be made in the best
interests of the whole community, then it is
also obvious that the County Commission is
using the prospect of larger property taxes as
an excuse to bend the rules.
To then tell the citizens that your hands
are tied is just telling them that you think

Oil drilling is safe
EDITOR:
In response to one of your letters regard-
ing drilling for oil in the Gulf:
All oil spills and damage have occurred
from tanker spills and none to this date from
drilling. There is far less risk in drilling for
oil than to import it in tankers. Until we find
another source of energy, drilling for our
own oil and building new refineries is our
best bet.
Due to false information, we have not
built.a new refinery in 25 years, which is the
biggest factor in the price of gasoline.
Henry Bernazani
Marathon


they are stupid.
No property owner has a God-given right
to expect to get his property rezoned so he
can make some money. Why is the County
Commission going along with this for any-
body?
Would they do it for me? I'd like to offer
my single-family property located inside the
-National Key Deer Refuge to McDonalds,
which would love to build a restaurant here.

Yearbook sets new standard


EDITOR:
Congratulations are in order for
Marathon High School's yearbook
class.
Last month, Walsworth Publishing
Co. inducted the yearbook,
Shoreline, into its Gallery of
Excellence. This is a showcase of the
best yearbooks published by
Walsworth.
Gallery books are used nation-
wide as quality examples, loaned to
schools to use as idea generators and
are often displayed at regional state
and national convention and work-
shops. This is especially significant
and exciting as this is the 50th
anniversary edition of Shoreline.
This recognition would not have
been possible without the tremen-
dous efforts of the yearbook class
students and several parent volun-
teers. Thanks go out to volunteer cre-
ative director Lynn D'Ascanio, vol-
unteer photographer Jackie Eigner
and volunteer editor Katrina Wiatt.
They are terrific. Thanks also to the
students. It was a rough start but they
came together as a team and got it
done.
Students, parents and members of


the community will be extremely
pleased by this year's book. The
theme of Now and Then allowed us
to utilize photos from the previous
50 years editions of Marathon year-
books. Many former graduates and
members of the community may rec-
ognize themselves or their friends
and family members throughout the
pages.
Shoreline will be published at the
end of July since the students decid-
ed to include both prom and gradua-
tion. Pre-orders can be arranged
through the office at Marathon High
School. Cost of the yearbook is $60.
For reasons not shared with me, I
will not be teaching at Marathon
High after this school year.
Therefore, I pass on the torch of
yearbook advisor to the next teacher
to take over this role. Hopefully, we
have raised the bar and set a new
standard of excellence for Shorelines
to come.
Congratulations once again to the
Shoreline staff and volunteers. Job
well done. Remember me fondly. I
will miss you all.

Harbor and residents have come a long way


EDITOR:
This is a rebuttal to the June 6 let-
ter titled "Marina staff needs kind-
ness training."
I am a full-time resident of
Marathon. I have owned property in
Marathon and lived here before
Marathon became a city. I have seen
many changes over the years to our
harbor, from the wild to the civilized.
I watch daily the arrivals and depar-
tures of vessels from all over the
world.
I listen to the comments that our
visitors to the harbor community
make when they enter and leave the
harbor. I hear nothing but praise for
the people at the marina, the bridge
tenders, the city and the harbor com-
munity.
They say we have the nicest,
friendliest marina and bridge tenders
they have ever seen, they will be
back next year and for a longer peri-
od of time, and that the harbor has
certainly come a long way since they
previously visited.
I urge everyone to listen to their
VHF radios and hear the wonderful
things that are being said about our
harbor and especially our new moor-
ing field. Gone are the days of the
harbor being out of control. Our har-
bor community is for all ages to
enjoy.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, Monroe


County Sheriff's Office and the city
are coordinating their efforts to
improve all of the nearshore waters
of Marathon.
After hearing only positive
remarks about our harbor, I wonder
what behavior from our visitors
caused the problem, if in fact there
was a problem.

Garden is beautiful
EDITOR:
I would like to thank D'Asign
Source for its generous donation of
plants and materials to create a won-
derful butterfly garden at Stanley
Switlik Elementary School. Not only
did they contribute the plants, paths
and benches, they contributed some-
thing just as important their time.
Giving up their Saturday, more than
13 D'Asign Source employees and 25
Switlik staff members and families
worked hard to create a new and beau-
tiful haven for birds and butterflies.
Other contributors included Toppino's,
Keys Discount Rock and Sand, Home
Depot and Gonzalez Landscaping.
The old garden was destroyed by
Hurricane Wilma. The new garden
was rededicated June 4.

Class of 2007 gets lots of support


EDITOR:
We would like to thank all who
helped us out with the graduation for
Marathon High School.
First, thanks to all of the parents who
helped us out and for understanding the
ups and downs of putting all the activi-
ties together. We really do appreciate all
they did. Thank you to Jackie Eigner for
the volunteer time she put in during
school time taking pictures for us.
Thank you to J&J Florist for all the
beautiful flowers donated. Thanks to
Home Depot for the beautiful palms
donated for graduation. Thank you to
the Keynoter for printing our senior pic-
tures. And thank you to the administra-
tion and board members who took time
to be here for our senior class.
Most of all, a big thanks to the Class
of 2007 for letting us be their class
sponsors the past three years. We are
very proud to have been a part of their


lives. We wish them all the best and
they should always remember we will
be here for them.

Thanks for the coverage

EDITOR:
Thank you very much for the public-
service coverage you gave our recent

service coverage.
We really appreciate your assistance.

Delta needs to maintain its schedule


EDITOR:
Two weeks ago, I booked a Delta flight
from Marathon to Portland, Ore., out on a
Thursday and back on Tuesday and plan to
do two more trips, one in August and one
in September, leaving and coming back on
the same days.
Much to my dismay, I read in the next
day's Keynoter that they, through county
Airports Director Peter Horton, wanted to
cut back the one flight on Tuesday and
Wednesday those months because it is slow
season.
We have been asked numerous times to
support Delta and that is exactly what I am
trying to do.
We all have slow season, but this is a
public service and should not be allowed to
cut back like this, especially after working
for five years to get it and then subsidizing
it and getting a one-year contract. It has
come to my attention that the County
Commission has to approve this and I
strongly ask that it does not.


This is not just for me that I am asking
but, as we all know, these months are the
height of hurricane season and some peo-
ple would use this service to evacuate.

Save KCB from snakes

EDITOR:
We live half each year in Keuy
Colony Beach. We own an apartment
there.
We are concerned about the large
snake problem that has invaded the
waters in the Keys. I should think the
people in the real-estate business would
certainly be concerned. Perhaps a bounty
on each snake brought in and destroyed
would be a wonderful incentive. I don't
care what the animal-rights people say.

One bid comes in for the Hickory House


Kings Pointe
offers $3.1M
for restaurant
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


The owner of Stock Island's
King's Pointe Marina has
offered $3.1 million to Monroe


TOCK ISI

County for a defunct restau-
rant, bar and fish house.
Bids were opened Tuesday
on the former Hickory House,
which the county bought in
December for $3.12 million
with a plan to provide public
access to the water.
King's Pointe Marina LLC,
next door to the Hickory


7 Mile Grill Location
Business/Property
1240 Overseas Hwy., Marathon, FL 33050


By owner $1,800,000.
For Appointment (305) 304-9189


Some say this boat's name describes how the Hickory
contending only King's Pointe Marina LLC could qualify
boat's in storage at King's Pointe.


House, was the sole bidder.
The proposal calls for
incorporating the property into
the redevelopment of King's
Pointe, formerly the Oceanside
Marina, creating a ship's store
on the site and adding five
affordable housing units on the
second story.
"We were hoping to get a


little bit more," Monroe
County Administrator Tom
Willi said. "But there has to be
a little tradeoff because we're
going to have public access
and affordable housing units.
[The developer] will be doing
all the improvements; that's all
for public benefit."
The county closed on the
Hickory House sale in
November. Commissioner
Dixie Spehar pushed hard for
the purchase to provide public
water access for Stock Island
residents.
Two appraisals conducted
in October priced the parcel at
between $2.5 million and
$3.75 million. At the time, the
property had a working restau-
rant and a liquor license that,
according to state records, can-
not be transferred off site.
"At least we're getting our
money back, having spent it on
something I didn't feel provid-
ed us with any great reward by
buying it," said Commissioner
George Neugent, who has been
vocally opposed to the coun-
ty's purchase of the property.
"I'll just be glad when it's
gone and the controversy is
gone with it."
Spehar and Willi argued for
the purchase, saying revenue
from the restaurant, which they
hoped to lease back to the for-


Keynoter photo by ALYSON CREAN
use bid package was written,
buy the former restaurant. This


mer owner, would offset the
sales price. However, the
county shut down operation
shortly after the purchase,
fencing off the parcel to dis-
suade vandals.
Willi told the commission
in September that permits were
in place to add to the existing
docks on the property, allow-
ing for 21 slips.
However, county staffers
later learned that an applica-
tion for the dock permits was
denied by the state Department
of Environmental Protection.
King's Pointe, according to the
bid, plans to install 18 boat
slips on the site.
The bid proposal requires
the buyer to upgrade a county-
owned boat ramp adjacent to
the property unless the new
owner could provide boat-
ramp access within half a mile
of the former Hickory House.
In the King's Pointe proposal,
the developer would allow
public access to the King's
Pointe Marina ramp.
Principals of King's Pointe
own numerous Keys develop-
ments including the upscale
Playa Cristal in Key Largo,
Angler's Reef in Islamorada
and a proposed development
formerly known as Watermark
at Key West Harbor now called
Harbor House.

No sewer tax for now


-Council unhappy
with hookup
costs, equity
By RYAN McCARTHY
and DAVID BALL
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
voted to further alter sewer plans
Tuesday due to the state's failure
to contribute funding to the proj-
ect.
The city comprehensive plan
calls for the state to pay 40 per-
cent of the system's estimated
$82 million cost.
In a 4-1 vote, the council
chose not to assess sewer taxes to
residents living in areas where
construction was set to begin,
instead deciding to borrow
money to move forward.
"I saw the six months it took
us to do the two miles of pipe on
Sombrero" Beach Road,
Councilman Pete Worthington
said in support of the vote, "so I
don't want to see people paying
for something that may not come
to fruition."
Vice Mayor Marilyn Tempest
was the only dissenter, saying the
city has a good plan and should
stick with it.

Alleged thief
caught by video

A Key Largo man has been
charged with burglarizing a Key
Largo convenience store May 31.
Thursday, deputies said the
owner of the Citgo at mile mark-
er 106.5 went to work just before
7 a.m. June 1 to find the alarm
sounding. He entered to turn it
off and found broken glass from
a window that had been smashed
with a brick.
When deputies from the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
reviewed a surveillance tape
from security cameras, they saw
a suspect later identified as Pedro
Kuder, 24, break the window,
enter and take a six pack of
Corona beer from a cooler.
Sgt. David Carey was able to
identify Kuder from the tape and
knew he lived in the area. Kuder
was charged with burglary and
grand theft.


"I don't like borrowing money
for design and engineering," she
told the Keynoter. "I was trying
to follow the financial plan."
The city had planned to set
assessments for next year's tax
roll at a July 9 meeting, but will
instead use the date as a work-
shop to further tweak hookup
costs to various users.
The council, particularly
Worthington, had issues with the
assessment figures, where a resi-
dential user would be charged
$4,499 per equivalent dwelling
unit (EDU) as well as an $8,304
connection fee. One EDU is
equivalent to the use of 167 gal-
lons of water per day and corre-
lates to one single-family home.
The main sticking point was
that the connection fee could be
split among condominium and
mobile-home owners in a single
building or park, which has one
point of connection to the system.
Yet each single-family home-
owner would be forced to pay
that entire fee on their own.
Citizens packed the Sheriff's
Office hangar at Florida Keys
Marathon Airport for the meeting
and made several impassioned
pleas to the council. Most senti-
ments were regarding the assess-
ment costs being too excessive.
"If this council doesn't do the
right thing and get the money
from the state, the only flow is

going to be the people leaving
this town," Monroe County
School Board member John Dick
said.
However, some residents were
in favor of the project moving
forward as planned.
"The last thing we want to see
is a sewer project that will cost
two or three times what it was
supposed to be," resident Fred
Endemann said.
The council voted to continue
moving forward on constructing
service areas four (Sombrero
Beach Road/ U.S. 1 corridor) and
six (Coco Plum Drive/ U.S. 1
corridor), but instead using bor-
rowed money as well as possible
capital infrastructure funds.
Consultant Wieler Engineer-
ing designed the system into
seven separate service areas with
pipes, vacuum pumps and
sewage treatment plants that
operate independently of other
areas.
With the current $8 million in
promised state funding not yet
received, the cost for one single-
family home to connect in service
areas four and six could be as
high as $12,800, according to

Sigsbee Elementary could close


Housing issue
appears to be
among reasons
By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com

The Monroe County School
Board is considering closing
Sigsbee Elementary School in
Key West.
Some have wondered if the
board might close Sigsbee in
response to conflict over the use
of School District land at Naval
Air Station in Key West.
For several years the School
Board has 'wanted to build
affordable housing for teachers
at Sigsbee, which is surrounded
by Navy land.
The board had a plan to build
Sigsbee Park Village, with 30 to
42 affordable-housing units.
The project was cut short
when Capt. J.R. Brown took
command of the Navy base,
School Board Chairman Andy
Griffiths said. Brown gave the
board a list of concerns about
having civilian housing on Navy
property.


Since then, the School Board
has proposed other uses for the
land, but each proposal has met
opposition from the Navy.
"We're just not getting a lot
of cooperation with this admin-
istration," Griffiths said. "We
may be forced to abandon
Sigsbee because it's not a viable
facility."
Brown was out of town at
press time and not available for
comment.
Jim Brooks, spokesman for
NAS Key West, said, "Sigsbee
School is a true neighborhood,
community school.... We'd like
to see it kept open."
The board will discuss clos-
ing Sigsbee at its workshop on
Tuesday in Key West.
At the School Board meeting
at Coral Shores High School
May 22, board member John
Dick said the district should not
close the school in an attempt to
punish Brown.
Board member Steven
Pribramsky, referring to the cost
of keeping Sigsbee open, said
that when a district spends an
extra $2,000 on certain students,


as it does with Sigsbee, every
student suffers.
"Not closing it affects all of.
our kids," he said.
Griffiths said Sigsbee's popu-
lation of fewer than 250 students
does not constitute a "viable"
size for an elementary school.
If a school has fewer than
650 students, it doesn't have
enough funding to pay for its
entire staff and must be subsi-
dized by other schools, he said.
Griffiths said Sigsbee's costs
are about $2,000 higher per stu-
dent than the district's average
per-student spending.
Closing the school would
save the Monroe County School
District more than $1 million,
Pribramsky said.
Sigsbee, built in 1950, is also
"the facility in most need of
repair," Griffiths said.
If the school is closed, stu-
dents would be relocated to
Glynn Archer Elementary,
Gerald Adams and Poinciana
Elementary, Dick said.
Griffiths said he would like
to see the Navy take over opera-
tion of the school as a charter
institution to save it from clo-
sure.


"The board would be happy
to share an application with
[Brown] and assist him in filling
it out," Griffiths said.
Sigsbee Elementary School is
also losing its principal, Marian
Smith, who will replace the
retiring principal of Horace
O'Bryant Middle School, Frank
Spoto, in the upcoming school
year.
Superintendent Randy
Acevedo said Smith will not be


replaced if the school is closed
for the 2007-08 school year.
If the board decides to close
the school for the 2008-09
school year, an administrator
will "ride it out" for the upcom-
ing year, but no new principal
will be assigned, he said.
If the board decides to keep
the school open indefinitely, the
district will go through the
process -of hiring a new princi-
pal, he said.

teachers, who had to pack up
their classrooms in preparation
for relocation to the nearly com-
pleted new building.
Construction of the $28.2

beginning of the 2006-07 school
year and will finished in July.
"Our teachers are a dedicated
group of professionals. They've
been packing for the past
month," Principal Annette
Martinson said.
She said she hopes to move
into the new building Aug. 1.
The old building, which for-

merely housed prekindergarten
through eighth grades, will be
used for middle-school electives
classes, which are normally held
in another building that is also
being remodeled, Martinson
said.
After remodeling is com-
plete, the building for the elec-
tives will be torn down to make
way for green space, Vice
Principal Julia Clemons said.
Other future construction will
include a new cafeteria and air
conditioning in the gymnasium.
"Our entire school communi-
ty is excited about the new
building," Martinson said. "All
of our classes will be in full-
sized classrooms. We will have
an outstanding package of tech-
nology for our teachers to use.
Our school will be new, and we
will have the same KLS commit-
ment to our students."

He wants $130K,
but some say
it's too much
By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com

The chief of Key Largo's
wastewater district said he might
step down if district commission-
ers don't approve his salary raise
request.
"I love what I'm doing. Last
year I said I wouldn't leave no
matter what. I can't say that
now," Key Largo Wastewater
Treatment District General
Manager Charles Fishbum said at
the district's board meeting
Tuesday, where the item was
tabled.
Fishbum requested a salary of
$130,000 plus $6,000 for medical
benefits, a raise of $30,000 from
his current salary.
He received a pay raise of
$14,000 in January 2006, bring-
ing his salary to $106,000 from
$92,000. At the time, he'd
requested an annual salary of
$120,000.
Former district Commissioner
Charles Brooks attended the
meeting and said the raise
amount is too high.
"I implore you to be cautious
as to how you spend our money,"
he said.


new assistant principal. Both
positions are expected to be
filled no later than July 1.
The School District typical-
ly advertises a position for five
days, though that period may
be extended for the principal
position.
Pertner has been principal at
Marathon High School since
September 2005 after a half-
year as assistant principal at
Coral Shores High School. The
Ohio native has been an ele-
mentary or high-school princi-
pal for 27 years.
Pertner said he felt it was
time to "try something else"
after leading the school
through a difficult construction
process.
Students were being taught
in 25 portable classrooms when
he arrived in Marathon, but by

At a time when the state is try-

with the performance of Chuck,"
Commissioner Claude Bullock
said. "If he walks out of here
tomorrow, it's going to cost us
more than we are paying him
now and more than is even on the
table.... We don't want to run him
off."
"I think Chuck is worth twice
what we pay him," Com-
missioner Andy Tobin said.
Commissioner Susan
Hammaker suggested offering


Fishbum an incentive-laden con-
tract that would reward his per-
formance instead of giving him a
fixed amount of money.
Commissioner Norm Higgins
said Fishbum has performed so
well and saved the district so
much money that "he'd probably
make three times as much" with
such a contract elsewhere.
Newly appointed board
Chairman Commissioner Gary
Bauman said a somewhat lower
raise might be more reasonable.
"He's below budget and on
schedule. That's why we hired
him. I expect him to be excellent
and he has," Bauman said. "But
130 [thousand dollars] is still
extravagant."
The board will continue dis-
cussion on Fishbum's raise at its
June 19 meeting.
In other news, the board
approved a cooperative agree-
ment with the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers. The Corps will pro-
vide $500,000 to the district for
construction of phase three of
basin D, an area including part of
La Paloma Road, Gibralter Road,
Valencia Road and parts of
Alhambra Drive, Mahogany

that was appropriated for Key
Largo wastewater projects.

"There's only one way to
get serious about your thinking
and that's to set things in
motion," Pertner said of his
decision to resign.
Klinedinst has also been
with the high school since


2005. She plans to concentrate
her time on completing a doc-
torate degree in urban educa-
tion.
"It is difficult with the rig-
ors of the job and a 2-year-old
and a 5-year-old running
around," she said.

Keys RV plan heads to city


It would allow
redevelopment
of 210 units
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
on Tuesday is expected to
consider a development
agreement for Keys RV Park
near mile marker 50.5. The
meeting is scheduled for 5:30
p.m. at the Marathon
Government Center.
But this particular develop-
ment agreement doesn't out-
line any new development,
but instead gives property
owners in the park the ability
to redevelop without facing
numerous code violations.
"This is one thing that is
good for people living there
today and for the future," said
Planning Director Fred Gross,
who hopes the plan will
become a model for the rede-


velopment of other overly
dense and substandard proper-
ties.
Gross said the agreement
essentially establishes rede-
velopment rights to each of
the park's 210 units 22
mobile homes given market-
rate residential rights, 124
permanent RVs given afford-
able housing residential rights
and 64 transient RVs given
transient rights.
Those units could then be
redeveloped into market-rate
homes, deed-restricted afford-
able homes or newer transient
RVs. The rights could also be
moved to other properties or
sold using the city's recent
ordinance allowing the trans-
fer of building rights.
"The big thing is the
TBRs," Gross said. "If you
could buy the property next to
you, you could then sell one
of the TBRs, combine the lots
and put up a new house.


Ideally, we've then decreased
the density over time."
Unlike many RV parks that
are owned by a single entity,
which then rents out space to
tenants, residents in Keys RV
own their individual lots and
trailers and therefore can
redevelop into permanent
homes.
However, Gross said that
redevelopment had been
stymied for years because of
numerous code violations due
to structures being construct-
ed on top and around units
and many trailers being below
the required flood elevation.
Gross said the development
agreement allows the redevel-
opment by making all of those
violations "legal non-con-
forming uses" if established
before the agreement is
approved.
The city Planning
Commission voted 5-0 to rec-
ommend the City Council
approve the development
agreement.

Council to further

discuss bridge options


Affordable housing,
office trailers.
also on agenda
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Marathoil City Council is
scheduled to meet in regular ses-
sion at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the
Marathon Government Center.
Agenda items include:
A discussion of the Boot
Key Bridge. Deputy City
Manager CJ. Geotis previously
reported it would cost $1.5 mil-
lion to make emergency repairs
on the failing bridge and nearly
$6 million for complete refur-
bishment.
The council had already
agreed to place a locked gate in
front of the bridge on 20th Street
from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. to prevent
nighttime illegal dumping on
Boot Key.
A presentation by Planning
Director Fred Gross on the city's
attempts to be included in a coun-
ty request for qualifications bid to
build affordable housing. The
city hopes to secure a firm to
build as many as 40 units on
property near 104th Street.
+ A discussion of plans to
move city staff out of current
offices at the 100th Street Center
and into trailers on the events
field between 98th and 99th
streets. Some staff currently
operates out of four trailers on the
field.
The move is expected to save
the city nearly $35,000 a year in
rent, although Councilman Pete
Worthington has voiced concerns
over the danger of housing staff
and documents in trailers during
hurricane seasons. Worthington
placed the discussion on the
agenda.
A development agreement
with Peebles Corp. for the rede-
velopment of the Key Colony
Bay Hotel. The item was up for
final approval a month ago, but
the council recently voted to
reconsider the agreement and
Peebles' planned affordable
housing contribution.
The initial agreement allowed
redevelopment of the 80-room
hotel into 72 multi-bedroom
suites along with a new restaurant
and spa.


A major conditional use for
the construction of 3,915 square
feet of new dockage and 25 boat
slips at the Island Tiki Bar near
mile marker 54.
+ Approving the assignment
of a development agreement for
the redevelopment of Crystal
Cove Resort from former proper-
ty owners Jack and Veronica
Leggett to purchaser and current
owner HTG Crystal Cove Resort.
According to the staff report,
the current owner wants to modi-
fy the agreement to redevelop 30
hotel rooms into 27 two-bedroom
suites.
An ordinance creating a city
restoration fund, which is
required by the city's comprehen-
sive plan and will be used to
restore city-owned environmen-
tally sensitive lands, wetlands,
beaches and other areas.
A resolution approving a
continuing services agreement
with E & F Contractors for dem-
olition and repair of unsafe struc-
tures and general repairs of city-
owned or leased properties. The
costs of such projects are expect-
ed to be recovered from the prop-
erty owners.
Discussion of a permit-fee
waiver for an irrigation permit for
the Grace Jones Community
Center and Day Care.
A resolution to renew a con-
tract with the Four Gates Co. for
consulting services with the
Planning Department for
$50,000.

Reef plates generate big bucks


Money returns
to the Keys
for research
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The most popular specialty
license plate in the Florida Keys
- "Protect Our Reefs" returns
much of its revenue to Keys
research, restoration and outreach
projects.
Revenue from the reef special-
ty plates statewide generated
$375,000 for 2007 grants,
according to Mote Marine
Laboratory, administrator for the
Protect Our Reefs Grants
Advisory Committee.
"The efforts by the award win-
ners throughout 2006 were just
phenomenal, demonstrating that
Protect Our Reefs funds pro-
duced important and meaningful
results," committee Chairman
Bruce Frerer said in a statement
issued this week by Mote.
"The 2006 research included a
little bit of everything: the role
bacteria play in coral health,
understanding whether viruses
could be used to inoculate corals
against 'bad' bacteria and even
ways to grow coral in an aquari-
um setting for later reef replen-


ishment," Frerer.said. "The work
was just stellar and we look for-
ward to even more innovations
with these new awards."
Many of the grants awarded
by the committee center on the
Florida Keys reef tract, which
runs from the Dry Tortugas to
near Miami.
The 4-year-old "Protect Our
Reefs" license plate tops special-
ty-tag sales in Monroe County.
Each plate generates $25 toward
reef-related efforts.
A state revenue report from
July 2006 through February 2007
shows 841 reef tags sold or
renewed in Monroe County, gen-
erating $21,025 in special funding.
The other most-popular tags
sold locally during the same peri-
od in Monroe County were
"Helping Sea Turtles" (510);
"Save the Manatee" (481);
"Protect Wild Dolphins" (399);
and "Save Our Seas" (306).
Statewide, vehicle owners
bought or renewed 39,582 "Protect
Our Reefs" tags in 2006, making it
the 10th most popular of 104 spe-
cialty tags available. It ranks just
behind the Challenger-Columbia
shuttle tag, and just- ahead of the
U.S. Marine Corps tag.
The University of Florida tag
was the most popular.
Some of the major science


programs funded by reef-plate
sales:
+ Targeted Biological Control
of Bacterial Diseases in Corals.
Grant of $25,208 helps
University of Florida scientists
learn more about.how some bac-
teria help ward off "bad" bacteria
that can cause coral illness and
death.
Seasonal Changes in
Protective Properties of Elkhom
Coral. A grant of $45,795 helps a
Mote research team study why
surface mucus on the threatened
elkhorn corals loses its protective
properties as water temperatures
rise, making the elkhom more
prone to disease.
+ Impacts of Red Tides and
Toxins on Scleractinian Coral
Health. A grant of $18,950 helps
a Smithsonian Marine researcher
look at the red-tide organism to
study its effects on mustard-hill
coral. The project is based in the
Lower Keys.
Coral Spawning Partner-
ship. A $21,900 funds a special
effort headed by the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary to
assist researchers during the
annual coral spawn.
+ Studies of using sea urchins
to combat reef algae. A $57,000
grant studies why Keys sea
urchins have not rebounded from

Caribbean areas. The Mote-led

Education and outreach proj-
ects include $16,128 for Florida

volunteers to monitor and report
bleaching at local reefs.
The Blue Star Program, a Keys
sanctuary project, will receive
$31,717 to help educate staff at

Cat roundup delayed a


But it might
get started
this weekend
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The planned feral-cat roundup
on Big Pine Key, already delayed
once from its May start, was
delayed again this week as
groups opposed to possible euth-
anization again reiterated their
concerns to the National Key
Deer Refuge.
Stand Up for Animals Director
Linda Gottwald said she under-
stands the roundup was to begin
this weekend, but refuge
Manager Anne Morkill couldn't
be reached at press time Friday to
confirm that.*
Tuesday, Morkill met in
Marathon with representatives of


various groups opposed to the
roundup.
The roundup is intended to
protect endangered Lower Keys
marsh rabbits and other local
species the cats prey upon.
Trapping had been set to begin
Monday, but Morkill delayed the
project for unspecified reasons.
Friends and Volunteers of
Refuges President Alison
Higgins said she believes the
project was delayed because U.S.
Department of Agriculture work-
ers were involved in a program to
eradicate Gambian giant pouch
rats on Grassy Key. The same
USDA workers are responsible
for carrying out the feral-cat
roundup.
At the meeting at Marine
Bank, groups discussed altera-
tives to the planned agreement as
written in a cooperative service


gain

agreement application by Bernice
Constantin of the Department of
Agriculture in Gainesville.
Language in the agreement
calls for trapped cats to be taken
to a county facility when initially
captured, but "if captured a sec-
ond time the cat will be eutha-
nized."
The agreement also states that
any "cats that cannot be live cap-
tured will be lethally removed."
"We'd much rather see the
money used for spaying and neu-
tering rather than trapping and
euthanizing," Gottwald said.
Representatives of the refuge,
Monroe County and various local
organizations have arranged to
form a task force, stating in a
cooperation agreement: "The
interests of both rabbits and cats
would be best served if a contin-
uing dialogue between us were
maintained in the future."

District 5 race
for commission
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The Key West political scene
continues to heat up with anoth-
er potential candidate, Teri
Johnston, president of Fair
Insurance Rates for Monroe,
considering running for City
Commission in District 5.
"I think that the city is in a
transition period right now and

in order to move it ahead, we
need some forward-thinking
individuals," Johnston said. "I
care about the community, great-
ly."
Johnston told the Keynoter
she is in the "exploratory phase"
and nothing is official right now.
Johnston said she, along with
her FIRM colleagues, has been
working tirelessly in Tallahassee
to fight for equitable windstorm
insurance.
"We formed in February 2006
and since then we've brought
down the rate by 37 percent," she
said. "We saved the people of
Monroe County $1.4 million in
insurance rates for this year and
next year."
She labeled development a
hot topic, and said the city needs
an official who knows how to
manage the long-term impact of
the city's constant changes.


Johnston would know a thing
or two about development she
owns Construction Affiliated
Design, working there 10 years.
Before that, she lived in Chicago
and had a career in international
marketing that led her all over
the world.
She also noted Key West's
most talked-about quandary, and
the snail-paced journey to solu-
tions.
"We don't seem to be moving
forward on [affordable housing]
with great strides," she said.
She moved to Key West 2003.
Commissioner Jose
Menendez now serves District 5
and said he will run again, stregs-
ing the importance of being hon-
est and sincere with his con-
stituency.
Vincent Mancini, vice chair-
man of the Historic Architectural
Review Committee, has filed his
paperwork to run for the seat as
well.


Also running:
Barry Gibson, owner of
Shades of Key- West, and attor-
ney Richard Klitenick for City

He's the manager
but really starts
in three weeks
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

New Key West City Manager
Jim Scholl reached a compromise
after the City Commission debat-
ed his salary Tuesday.
And with an amendment to
the resolution, Scholl officially
took the city reigns Wednesday
when he signed the contract.
Retired City Manager Julio
Avael said he will continue work-
ing in the city manager's office
until Scholl is back from vacation
and ready to work July 2. But
according to Avael, Assistant City
Manager John Jones will handle
all city business, as he has for
some time now, until Scholl takes
the seat.
Even with the official title of
city manager, Scholl will go
unpaid for the three weeks lead-
ing up to July 2.
Commissioner Harry Bethel,
who was tagged by his colleagues
to negotiate terms of the contract,
clashed with Scholl when they
discussed the issue of salary.
The commission previously
approved a salary range of


$165,000 to $200,000. Bethel
was content only with the mini-
mum, while Scholl said he'd like
to see more.
"My request was an initial
salary of $175,000," he told the
commission Tuesday.
Scholl received his more-than-
desired pay with one major stipu-
lation: He isn't allowed a raise in
salary throughout the course of
his three-year contract.
With the exception of
Commissioner Dan Kolhage, the
City Commission approved a flat
salary of $180,000. Com-
missioners Bill Verge and Bethel
were absent.
Kolhage cited Scholl's lack
"of unique experience in our
local government" as the reason
to propose an "annual review" to
see if Scholl could earn the salary
he requested.
Fellow commissioners and
residents felt differently.
"He deserves to be compen-
sated," Bahama Village
Consortium co-Chairman Robert
Kelly said. "I say let's not nickel
and dime this."
Scholl already has health
insurance from the U.S. Navy. He
retired as commander of Naval
Air Station Key West in 2006.
The difference between Avael


and Scholl's contracts is around
$10,000.
Avael makes $143,000 a year.
Add in insurance, sick leave and
vacation time, and the total pack-
age is $170,590.
Commissioner Jose Menendez
said he was concerned about the
availability section of the con-
tract that states Scholl would be
"reasonably available to city
commissioners and key city staff
twenty-four (24) hours a day" by
phone, e-mail or in person.
"It does not say seven days a
week," Menendez said.
As for Avael bidding farewell
to his 11-year tenure as city man-
ager, he only had this to say: "It
feels good."
Also Tuesday:
An ordinance that would
allow tattoo shop owners to move
their businesses-inside city limits
was tabled, as commissioners are
scheduling a workshop to further
discuss specifics.
A large number of support-
ers made appearances and
speeches at Old City Hall in favor
of Commissioner Mark Rossi's
resolution to request the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection submit a copy of its
plan to the city for removing
Australian pines from Fort
Zachary Taylor State Park. The
resolution was tabled.

Cay Clubs sale falls through


Future of one
Key West site
seems up in air
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The sale of three landmark
Key West restaurant -properties
to Cay Clubs, announced in
March, has not taken place.
Sides in the transaction this
week offered differing views on
whether it ever will.
The Turtle Kraals and Half-
Shell Raw Bar, off Margaret
Street, and the A&B Lobster
House complex on Front Street
are involved in the announced
sale from Southernmost


But McPherson
says he needs
to give it up
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Julio Avael is no longer Key
West's city manager, but that
won't slow down his involve-
ment in the community espe-
cially through the television
screen, he said.
Avael wants to continue his
television show "Point to Point,"
which airs on Comcast Cable
Channel 19 at 8 p.m.
Wednesday.
"I made arrangements with
Comcast to continue the show,"
Avael said. "I have sponsors and
they've been continuing the
show for five years now."
Avael rattled off sponsors
such as the Hemingway House
and Museum, Mel Fisher
Maritime Museum, Sloppy Joe's,
Waste Management, Rick's Bar
and the Hog's Breath Saloon.
But Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson doesn't like the idea
of seeing Avael's face on televi-
sion anymore.
"Basically, it's [Avael] trying
to throw a monkey wrench in
one more thing," he said.
McPherson added that he


Restaurant Group to Cay Clubs.
"Not going to happen," said
Gene Smith, Southernmost
owner, when asked Wednesday
about the status of the sale.
Smith declined to speak
about recent conversations with
Cay Club officials, but said he's
confident his firm would contin-
ue to operate the restaurants.
Frank Rego, vice president of
operations for Cay Clubs, said
the plan to buy the businesses on
the Key West Bight "is still on
the table."
"The contract is still valid,"
Rego said. "We are going
through with the purchase."
Terms of the sale were not
released.
STurtle Kraals and the Half-


thinks control of the show should
go to new City Manager' Jim
Scholl. Scholl could not be
reached by press time.
"I don't think that a consult-
ant running the show is in the
best interest in Key West,"
McPherson said.
"Actually, it's my show,"
Avael said. "I am the one who
asked for it and got sponsor-
ship."
Avael said he has hosted more
than 400 shows and has many
changes in mind he wants to
implement. He wants to have
more city and county officials as
guests, along with more upbeat,
political discussion.
According to Comcast Sales
Manager Kathy Koury, Avael
taped a show last Friday and has
scheduled a couple more for the
near future.
"We have spoken but we
haven't really come to any agree-
ment," she said. "Nothing has
been finalized."
Channel 19 airs about 17
shows a week. The locally gener-
ated shows include Cal Sutphin's
"Reelin' in the Keys," "Conch
Report" with Rick Lopez and
"On Tap."
Local news airs Monday
through Friday at 6, 9 and
11 p.m.


Shell Raw Bar are located in
Land's End Village, a city-
owned waterfront parcel several
blocks away from the A&B
complex, on property owned by
Southernmost. Both sites front
the Key West Bight.
"The A&B, the property and
marina are all included in the
package," Smith said after the
sale was announced.
The Key West Bight Board
and the Key West City.
Commission both approved an
"assignment of lease" for Turtle
Kraals and the Half-Shell from
Southernmost Restaurant Group
to Cay Clubs.
However, change of lease-
holders only becomes effective
when the sale of the restaurants
closes, said Marilyn Wilbarger,
Key West property manager.
Until then, Southernmost
Restaurants remains the tenant
of record. -
The 20-year lease with the
city expires in 2017.
Located on the Key West
Bight at 700 Front St., the A&B
Lobster, House complex also
houses Alonzo's Oyster Bar,
Berlin's Cocktails & Cigars and
White Tarpon, and a wine and
liquor store.
The property is zoned
Historic Residential Com-
mercial Core District-2, which
permits uses of everything from
single-, two- and multi-family
residential dwellings to places


of worship and office space.
Smith said the businesses
were not on the market when
negotiations began.
"I wasn't looking to sell.
[Cay Clubs] came in the door,"
said Smith. "You have to listen'
to all offers."
Cay Clubs, a Clearwater-
based firm formed in 2004, has
acquired several resort proper-


ties and restaurants in the Keys.
Cay Clubs plans to merge
with Key Hospitality Acquisi-
tion Corp., a publicly traded
company, later this year.
In May, Cay Clubs laid off
dozens of workers. The compa-
ny says it was a combination of
a seasonal slowdown and slim-
ming down in anticipation of the
merger.

3 Keys stores
are cited by
Dunkin' Donuts
Miami Herald

Some businesses caught up in
the crackdown on undocument-
ed workers may-have another
risk to worry about: the loss of
their franchise agreements.
Dunkin' Donuts contends the
owner of three Key West
Dunkin' Donut shops violated
franchise agreements by hiring
undocumented workers and is
asking a federal court to termi-
nate the contracts.
The Massachusetts-based
chain's lawsuit comes about a
year after it voluntarily agreed to
participate in the federal govern-
ment's Basic Pilot Program to
ensure new hires are legally
authorized to work.
It marks at least the fourth


time this year that Dunkin'
Donuts has accused a franchisee
in a federal lawsuit of either vio-
lating immigration and employ-
ment laws or accepting false
identification documents during
the hiring process.
Dunkin' Donuts spokes-
woman Susanne Norwitz said
it's company policy not to com-
ment on pending litigation.
Calls to the Dania Beach
office of Thomas E. Lewis, pres-
ident of the Monroe Donut Co.,
which operates the three Key
West shops, weren't immediate-
ly returned.
Monroe Donut's shops are on
Duval Street, Greene Street and
North Roosevelt Boulevard. It
has been a franchisee for almost
five years.
"Dunkin' Donuts is not doing
anything different than what fed-
eral and state agencies are doing
in pushing on the enforcement of


unauthorized workers," said
Enrique Gonzalez. a corporate
immigration lawyer in Miami.
Dunkin' Donuts may be holding
its franchisees' workforces to a
higher standard than others' to
ensure its brand image isn't tar-
nished, added Gonzalez, who is
not involved in the case.
A check of federal court
records didn't turn up any other
civil or criminal cases against
Monroe Donuts.
Dunkin' Donuts sued fran-
chisees in Atlanta, Boston and
New Jersey to terminate fran-
chise agreements for improperly
documenting new hires.
Businesses in the Keys' serv-
ice and hospitality industries
have struggled to find workers
because of the lack of affordable
housing. Dunkin' Donuts
-spokeswoman Norwitz didn't
respond on whether Dunkin'
Donuts would forsake those
locations in Key West if it can't
find qualified workers.

Pregnant girlfriend
locked in apartment

Key West Police arrested a
man Thursday for allegedly lock-

friend in their apartment for
more than nine hours without
food or a way to escape in case of

side of the front door to the apart-
ment and called police, spokes-
woman Christie Phillips said.
Officer Frank Cohens arrived

Seascape owners have decided to sell the property at an 'absolute auction,' meaning the
highest bidder buys the resort, with no reserve set to ensure a certain price is met. Auction
organizers are expecting a big turnout at Thursday's sale.


Seascape on auction block


No reserve set
for bidders at
Thursday's sale
By PAMELA J. SUAREZ
Keynoter contributor

Another Keys real estate
owner will try to sell his proper-
ty at auction next week, and he is
hoping to buck a recent down-
ward trend in sales by offering
his oceanfront acreage to the
highest bidder with no
reserve.


Robbie Browning of Winter
Park and his partners will sell
Seascape, a 4.75-acre resort at
the end of 75th and 76th streets
in Marathon, at 1 p.m. Thursday.
The auction will take place on
site, and Browning has hired the
National Auction Group Inc. of.
Gadsden, Ala., to run the sale.
In an absolute auction, there
is no minimum bid requirement
and no reserve, which means the
highest bid wins, even if it is a
low amount.
Browning and his partners


bought Seascape two years ago
for $4.45 million. They had
planned to develop the property
but had a change of heart and put
it back on the market for $7.6
million in early 2007.
The group decided to elimi-
nate Seascape from their hold-
ings, Browning said, because
they wanted to shift their focus
away from destination properties
and concentrate their presence
closer to home in Central
Florida.
"Our mainstay has been apart-

Seascape up for bid


AUCTION / From 17

ments, offices, and retail, not so
Much in the destination proper-
ties," he said.
Browning said he did not
research how other auctions have
fared in the Keys before deciding
to go that route with Seascape.
"We're just going to take a
shot, just throwing the long
bomb," Browning said. "We feel
like this is a unique property.
With it being an absolute auc-
tion, we hope it's going to pull in
more people."
Dave Lunsford, sales director
and auctioneer at Century 21
Prestige Realty in Marathon,
said he wishes he had been
tapped to handle Thursday's auc-
tion. He thinks Browning just
might hit the jackpot.
"I expect-a big turnout with
10, 12 bidders or more,"
Lunsford said. "I'd be surprised
if it doesn't bring good results."
But Brian- Schmitt, a broker
and sales associate at Coldwell
Banker Schmitt Real Estate,
Marathon, is skeptical.
"At an absolute auction,
you'll see [the property] selling
for sure," Schmitt said. "But for
how much? "In today's market,
based upon the recent experience
of auctions, I would not advise a
client to sell at auction."
One auction that did not work
out as the sellers had hoped took
place in Key West in April.
Business partners Robert Cobb
and Ron Heck offered three
commercial and six residential
properties to the highest bidders,
and not one sale resulted that
day.
However, Cobb and Heck had
set reserves for their properties,
which means if no bidder met an


undisclosed bottom-dollar price,
the property would not be sold.
Seascape will sell Thursday
no matter how low the bid, auc-
tion organizers say.
William Bone, president of
the National Auction Group Inc.,
is handling Thursday's auction.
He said he is excited about the
sale and quite happy to have
Browning's business.
"This guy has spent a lot of
money to do this," Bone said.
"He wrote me a big old check. It
won't be the end of the world for
Mr. Browning if it doesn't sell
for much."
Bone said most of the poten-
tial buyers that have contacted
him about the sale are from the
Keys specifically Marathon
and Key West but the auction
has not generated as much inter-
est as he had anticipated.
"Hopefully there's someone
laying in the bushes somewhere
who'll come out and bid," Bone
said. "It's like a poker game, you
know?"
Prospective buyers must have
$100,000 in certified funds to
participate in the auction. The
winner must pay 10 percent of
the sales price on auction day,
and closing will take place with-
in 30 days of the sale.
According to the National
Auction Group's listing, the
Seascape resort features more
than 500 feet of Atlantic shore-
line and includes a boat basin, 11
resort units and a swimming
pool. The listing also states that
the property is approved for one
single family and 10 condo/hotel
units.
National Auction Group staff
is on hand now to show the prop-
erty by' appointment from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. They can be
contacted at 743-6212.

Winn-Dixie is charged up for storm season


Grocery chain
equipping stores
with-generators
Jacksonville-based Winn-
Dixie Stores officials say
Tropical Storm Barry, which
formed on the first day of the
2007 hurricane season, helped
focus attention on why individu-
als and businesses need to plan
for an emergency.
The grocery chain is equip-
ping selected stores throughout
its operating area with genera-
tors that can power an entire
store in the event of a power out-
age. The 66 stores being outfit-
ted with the diesel-powered 500-
kilowatt generators are in areas
that have been affected by power
outages associated with hurri-
canes and tropical storms in
recent years.
"The installation of these
powerful generators allows us to

be better prepared and serve our
customers in the event of a
storm," said Shawn Sloan,
Winn-Dixie's director of mainte-
nance and energy management.
"They will enable our stores to
remain open and functional in
the aftermath of a hurricane or
tropical storm, even if local
power has not been restored. We
will be able to better serve our
customers when they need us
most."
The generators are capable of
running an entire store includ-
ing coolers and freezers to
ensure that perishable foods like
milk and dairy products, meats,
produce and frozen foods are not
compromised. (All of the com-
pany's 521 stores are equipped
with smaller generators, but they
are not powerful enough to run
an entire store or keep coolers
and freezers operating.)
"In past years, we used truck-

er is affected by hurricane con-
ditions, AppRiver will begin
queuing the business' incoming
e-mail messages in one of its
data centers until that compa-
ny's e-mail servers are up and
running again.
The company can also
request for its e-mail to be redi-
rected elsewhere or made avail-
able online, so the business can
remain functional during the
storm and the post-storm recov-
ery period.
"We know first-hand how
critical e-mail is to function in
today's business market and we
hope to make it easier for other


businesses to avoid the lost cus-
tomers and lost opportunities
that can come with the disrup-
tion of e-mail service," said
Michael Murdoch, chief execu-
tive officer of AppRiver.
Blake Gehres, chief technol-
ogy officer with the Florida
Chamber of Commerce says he
hopes all Florida companies
will take advantage of the
service.
To access the free service,

also be reached at (866) 223-

were restored. Those units will
be used, if needed, during this
storm season," Sloan said.
Winn-Dixie has already out-
fitted its regional distribution
centers in Miami, Orlando,


Jacksonville, Montgomery, Ala.,
and Hammond, La., with genera-
tors. -
Company officials expect to
have back-up generators
installed by July at the Florida

those in other coastal regions.
Winn-Dixie operates five

Dad's day


just around


the corner


Here are
some ideas to
show the love
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Most everyone goes through
the battle you don't want to
surrender to the. forced material-
ism surrounding Father's Day
but at the same time, you don't
want to deal with the guilt of not
having a gift when the June 17
date rolls around in a week.
Some people may think it's-
strange to spend money for a day
lacking in historical signifi-
cance, but then again, it's safe to


assume some people don't know
the origin of Father's Day.
Sonora Dodd sparked the
idea for the day in the early 20th
Century. She wanted to establish
a way to honor her father, Civil
War veteran and. single parent
William Smart.
Before President Nixon offi-
cially established the holiday in
1972, President Lyndon Johnson
designated the special day to fall
on every third Sunday in June.
Thanks to Sonora, we recog-
nize the day as an opportunity to
call our fathers, send a letter or
even buy a gift though for
some, it's become an obligation,
whether it's a routine tie or

Body Zone South offers plenty of stationary bikes for its spin
classes. Next Saturday, they're offering a two-hour course for

Key West by the Harlem Ambassadors traveling hoops team.


cheap fishing rod.
But if you do decide to reach
for the wallet this year, you
might as well have fun with it.

Manly baskets
You may not think that an
assorted basket would fulfill the
wishes of dad -- or Mr.
Machismo but if you look
hard enough, you'll find some
baskets with a masculine touch.
Take, for instance, gifts avail-
able at the Nut House at mile
marker 24.5 on Summerland
Key. They'll deliver football-
shaped baskets with beer-friend-
ly snacks inside.
Storeowner Jennifer Cleaver
said Father's Day usually brings
in a healthy amount of cus-
tomers.
"We had a lot of sales for
Mother's Day, but it's not as big
as Father's," she said. "My stuff
seems to go over well with the
masculine type."
Assortments of almonds,
Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts,
key lime pecans, macadamias


and pistachios are poured into
baskets the shape of footballs to
make for perfect beer munchies,
she said.
Various mixes also are avail-
able, like the Duval Crawl with
rice crackers and spices. Island
Mix contains raisins, apricots,
pineapple, papaya and more,
while the Key West Bar Mix
offers treats like pretzels, garlic
sesame rounds, bread sticks and
bagel chips.
Also for Father's Day, the
store is arranging popcorn buck-
ets with candies and movie
rentals from Summerland Video.
For buckets shipped outside of
the Big Pine Key-Key West
local delivery limit, they'll
throw in a DVD instead, she
said.
The Nut House is open from
2 to 9 p.m. and can be reached at
(800) 240-5864, 292-8688 or
online at www.keywestnut
house.com. Baskets are also
available at Albertsons.

1935 hurricane bears.down again


Documentary on
deadly storm
is shown Monday
One of the most detailed recre-
ations of the deadly Labor Day
Hurricane of 1935 will be shown
in a Monday program of the
Historical Preservation Society of
the Upper Keys.
"Storm of the Century," a 90-
minute documentary made for the
History Channel, makes extensive
use of actors as local figures, said
society president Jerry Wilkinson.
Wilkinson is among several
historians appearing during the
program.
"It focuses on the role and


plight of the World War 1 vets
building a highway from Lower
Matecumbe Key to Fiesta Key,
and the political atmosphere of
the Great Depression," Wilkinson
said.
"I like the broad focus of the
program, as this Upper Keys inci-
dent involved the president,
Congress, federal and state exec-
utive bureaucracies, the weather
bureau [and] the Florida East
Coast Railway," he said. "I call it
a movie, but I do not recall the re-
enactors saying a word other than
background audio for the narra-
tor."
The re-enactment scenes were
filmed in Wilmington, N.C., he

Speech screenings
end on Thursday

Free screenings for speech
and language disorders are being
offered at Mariners Hospital of
Tavernier.
"A speech or language deficit
can interfere with a child's abili-
ty to learn to read, spell or
write," Mariners Chief
Executive Officer Nelson Lazo
said.
Speech disorders affect the
clarity, voice quality and fluency
of a child's spoken words.
Language disorders include a
child's ability to hold meaning-
ful conversations, understand
others, solve problems, read and
comprehend, and express


thoughts through spoken or writ-
ten words.
The free screenings, given by
a Mariners speech therapist, will
be offered through Thursday.
To schedule a screening in the
Key Largo Physical Therapy
Center, mile marker 100, call
451-4398. For an appointment at
Tassell Medical Arts Building on
the Mariners campus, mile

Appointments are required.

Unitarians

"Pride Goeth Before it All" is

Members of the congregation

often considered pride to be a
fault, but that condemnation of
pride has supported all manner
of oppression.

Gift ideas for Father's Day


DAD / From 20

If dad's a golfer or fisherman,
you can also buy him a basket -
an eccentric basket, that is.
Check out Eccentric Basket
Gifts at www.eccentricbas
ket.com or (877) 542-0249 for
interesting alternatives. They
ship golfing and fishing-themed
baskets containing gourmet eats
across the Keys.

Buff dad
After dad shovels all of those
gourmet treats into his stomach,
he might be interested in a work-
out.
"We are meant to move like
hunters and gatherers," said
Body Zone South owner Sofia
Manolesco of the importance of
staying fit.
The Body Zone, in Key
West's Overseas Market at 2740
N. Roosevelt Blvd., is offering a
free two-hour spinning class for
which members can invite their
fathers on June 16, from 8:15 to
10 a.m. The price is $15 for non-
members.
Body Zone also offers gift
cards with its normal rates for
membership. For that informa-
tion call 292-2930 or visit
www.bodyzonesouth.com.
Other Florida Keys gyms
offer gift cards that would make
a more fitness-oriented Father's
Day present.
Nick's Fitness Center
Express is one example at mile


marker 54 in Marathon. It has
gift certificates at $60 for the
first month, $150 for three
months and $500 for a year.
Those include tax and 24-hour
access to the 4,000 square feet of
cardio machines, free weights
and weight machines.
"It's a healthy gift," owner
Nick Antonelli said.
Staff is available in the gym
from 5 to 8 p.m.

Swiss dad
If you're seeking a more lux-
urious gift, you can peruse rows
of top-of-the line Swiss watches
in Key West's Little Switzerland
at 271 Front St.
This upscale shop with two
locations the other at 400


Front St. offers upscale jew-
elry, watches and giftware.
The store offers price ranges
for everyone, according to man-
ager Carlos Sopo, and is the only
licensed Cartier dealer in the
Florida Keys.
The store offers 20 percent
less than the price of retail for
the watches.
And while watches, nuts and
gym memberships might put a
grin on pop's face, nothing
should do the trick like a nice
letter or an actual visit if you
can swing it.
Whatever route you take for
Father's Day gifts, be sure to
make this year's act of material-
ism a memorable one.

Keep food safety paramount


Here are some
grilling tips
for the chefs
McClatchy Tribune

With summer basically here,
cooking outdoors gains steams.
That means observing food-
safety guidelines to prevent
harmful bacteria from multiply-
ing and causing food-borne ill-
ness.
The Partnership for Food
Safety Education's recent find-
ings reveal that although a
majority of adults feel confident
that they understand and follow
food-handling procedures, a
sizable number do not consis-
tently follow certain safe prac-
tices.
According to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention,
76 million Americans, or one in
four, contract food-borne ill-
nesses every year.
Here are safety reminders
from the U.S. Department of
Agriculture:


Marinate food in the
refrigerator, not on the counter.
Poultry and cubed meat or
stew meat can be marinated for
as long as two days. Beef, veal,
pork and lamb roasts, chops,
and steaks may be marinated as
long as five days. If some of the
marinade is to be used as a
sauce on the cooked food,
reserve some marinade before
putting raw meat and poultry in
it. If the marinade used on raw
meat or poultry is to be reused,
make sure to let it come to a
boil first to destroy harmful
bacteria.
When carrying food to
another location, keep it cold to
minimize bacterial'growth. Use
an insulated cooler with enough
ice or ice packs to keep the food
at 40 degrees or colder. Pack
food right from the refrigerator
into the cooler immediately
before leaving home.
Keep meat and poultry
refrigerated until ready to use.
If using a cooler for meat, keep
it out of the direct sun by plac-


ing it in the shade or shelter.
Avoid opening the lid too often,
which lets cold air out and
warm air in. Pack beverages in
one cooler and perishables in a
separate cooler..
Be sure there are plenty of
clean utensils and platters.
Don't use the same platter and
utensils for raw and cooked
meat and poultry. Harmful bac-
teria in raw meat and poultry
and their juices can contaminate
safely cooked food.
Precooking food partially
in the microwave, oven or stove
is a good way to reducing
grilling time. Just make sure the
food goes immediately on the
preheated grill to complete
cooking.
Never partially grill meat
or poultry and finish cooking
later.
In hot weather (above 90
degrees), food should never sit
out for more than 1 hour.
Refrigerate leftovers
promptly in shallow containers.
Discard any food left out more
than two hours (one hour if tem-
peratures are above 90 degrees).

Keys boxer

ESPN2 air time
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

It's been five months since
Key West's Timmy Leonard
suffered his first pro defeat,
more than enough time for him
to reflect on his boxing future.
"After the initial disap-
pointment of the loss, I real-


ized I still wanted to fight,"
said Leonard, who was
roughed up by John Mackey in
an ESPN2 nationally televised
bout before his hometown fans
at Mallory Square in January.
"In a way, it took a weight
off my shoulder, knowing that
losing was not the end of the
world. Everyone in town was
still supportive, so it was a

another 5K run. His splits were


33 minutes, 38 seconds in the
10K, 58 minutes flat in the bike
ride and 19:26 in the 5K.
The course in the city of
100,000, near the Austrian bor-
der, comprised two 5K loops on
the initial run, then three loops
on the bike, followed by the out-
and-back 5K run.
Saviano qualified for the
duathlon at one of four races this
year at the Virginia Duathlon in
Virginia Beach, where he placed
21st of 498 competitors, earning
one of three slots in his division.
In an e-mail to the Keynoter,

$25,000 cash prize possible for dolphin tourney


Chamber hosts
its 14th annual
dolphin tourney

Anglers targeting dolphin
can also catch cash prizes and
awards totaling more than
$36,000 in the 14th annual Big
Pine and Lower Keys Dolphin
Tournament.
Set for June 15 to 17, the
tournament is presented by the
Lower Keys Chamber of
Commerce and Jig's Bait &
Tackle. Events are to be head-
quartered at the Sugarloaf Key
KOA at mile marker 20 ocean-
side.
The first 330 registered
anglers are eligible to win a
$25,000 cash prize sponsored
by the Dolphin Marina for

phin over 55 pounds.

fighting."
Finding fights for the 35-year-
old Monroe County firefighter,
however, has not been easy. A
scheduled bout in March in Key
Largo fell through, as did an
expected fight this month at
Mallory'Square.
But Leonard (3-1-1) will step
into the ring again Wednesday
night for a four-round prelimi-
nary bout at the A La Carte Event
Pavilion in Tampa. He will fight
for free light middleweight
Robert Newbiggin, a 42-year-
old, 5-foot-5 Briton with a 3-10
record.
The event will be part of
ESPN2's 9 p.m. "Wednesday
Night Fights," tfiough it is uncer-
tain whether Leonard will be
seen on TV.
Leonard, who has stayed in
shape at 152 pounds, is glad to
be fighting anybody.
"I've been ready since
March;" he said, adding that until
his manager, Si Stem, arranged
the Tampa fight, the inactivity
had discouraged him to the point
of possibly retiring.
Now, though, another fight
for Leonard looms in July at the
Seminole Hard Rock Casino in
Hollywood, and he said an ESPN
event is planned for Mallory
Square in November.
Leonard said he is more


focused on fighting than he was
in previous bouts because he's
left matters such as selling tick-
ets and arranging interviews
entirely up to Stem and trainer
Ricky Jackson.
Though he was a bloodied
'victim of a technical knockout in
January, Leonard said it wasn't
as bad as it looked.
"I thought I was getting pretty
beat up in the first round, but I
was really in the fight," he said.
"I was just so psyched out men-
tally."
The thrill of _fighting on
national TV is one that Leonard
wants to experience again.
"I want to get back on ESPN
and get a win," he said. "It would
be a nice highlight reel to look
'back on some day."

tographer's name, age, address
and parents' names and phone
number, as well as a brief
description of the subject mat-
ter, and where and when the
photo was taken.
Winners will be
announced by Aug. 17.
So kids, keep your cameras
handy and your eyes open for
things unique to the Keys and
its people. Whether you capture
images of nature, water,
wildlife, architecture, people or
events, we want to see them,
and our readers do too.
Call 743-5551 with ques-
tions.

Tips for kids
My dad, a professional pho-
tographer, told me when I was
a kid that "a good photographer
will get one perfect shot out of
a roll." Digitally, that translates
to about four good shots in
100. The point? Take a lot of
photos of one subject. Zoom in,
zoom out, change angles, etc.
Don't expose the film. I
learned the hard way at the St.
Louis Zoo. I was about 10-
years-old and knew I had some
excellent giraffe shots. I
opened the back of the camera
to see ... I don't know what to
see. Needless to say, I have no
photos of that trip.
History repeats itself. My
daughter took a tiny digital

In brief


camera on a recent fieldtrip to
the Miami Metro Zoo. Her col-
lection of meerkat photos are
just a memory; somehow she
deleted every shot. Don't press
any buttons unless you know
exactly what they do.
People need their feet. For
some reason, many amateur
photographers cut people off at
the knees or ankles, yet manage
to fill half the frame with back-
ground and sky. Before you
press the button, make sure you
can see the feet.
Natural light is best. Take .
the guesswork out of using a
flash and let the sun do the
work for you. Pay attention to
where the sun is in relation to
the subject and watch out for
shadows.
Don't be afraid to get close
- unless it's an alligator, that
is. Fill the frame with your sub-
ject. Don't be shy to get up
close to people.
Finally, keep your camera
on you. How many times have
you said "that would have been
a perfect picture" and you left
your camera at home? You
never know what's going to
happen, especially in the Keys.
Now, that should be plenty
to get you going. Get snapping!

excuse to wander into that little
dream. Sam Trophia has creat-
ed a beautiful experience down
there at the south end of Duval
Street.
You walk through the doors
and it's like Dorothy discover-
ing Oz. Suddenly everything is
in living color. Butterflies are
like an irregularly pulsing
euphoria. Get several thousand
of them together and it can
make you feel pretty good. Add
in the cutest little teeny birds in
the world and, well, it's really
sweet.
We also went down to
Sunset. As someone who lives
in Key West, the Sunset
Celebration is a rare treat. We
locals don't indulge in Sunset
that often.
It was the locals from the
1980s that created Sunset; that
encouraged the performers and
vendors; that made the nightly
ritual famous.
But I didn't see any of those
folks at Sunset. The only people
I saw that I knew were a few of
the performers and vendors.
It's not the old Sunset of
familiarity and easygoing enjoy-
ment of nature and entertain-
ment. Nevertheless, it's exciting
and exotic.

Damn the carnations: full speed ahead


Finding flowers
in bayou leads

A another perfect day to stop
and stir the grits and
smell the flowers..,
Back home on the Gulf of
Mexico's Redneck Riviera,
while visiting the family over a
long weekend, I heard Jimmy
Buffett was in town doing the
same, visiting his sister LuLu.
And if I do say so myself she
is one hell of a fine cook and

launched my 1966 Boston

waters of Weeks Bay, just north-
west of Gulf Shores, Ala., and
planned on dropping in on the
Buffett family for Sunday din-
ner.
If ever you find yourself in
the Deep South, one rule of
thumb to remember: If the morn-
ing dew is still on the ground it
is clearly too early to stop in for
a visit unless otherwise invited.
Not one for taking the last piece

tranquil bayou spying alligators
to pass the time.

through the massive limbs of the

grandchildren from church,
while the charming antebellum
homes sat proud atop the gentle
slope of the azalea-lined river-
bank the occasional whiff of
chicory coffee and bacon frying
made my stomach growl.
"Enough of this meandering!"
I said from the bow as I popped
open a couple cans of Dixie
beer. "Turn this ship around and
set a course for LuLu's!"

the engine. Kickin' up a rooster-
tail, we watered lawns, sliding
around comers and zipping
down straight a ways. What fun
watching gators get up on all
fours, belly-bustin' into the
bayou.
Off in the distance and just a
little ways under the bridge,
LuLu's was coming into view
and to my delight so was a rain-
bow of carnations floating in the
cool fresh water. I motioned for
Elbows to cut the engine while
leaning over to grab one it
stood straight up like it had just
been picked.
"Where do think these came
from Elbows?" I asked. Looking
around and then up, Elbows
mumbled a logical scenario, "I
think some bi*#h was mad at her
boyfriend and tossed them out of
her car from off the bridge."
Yeah Elbows, you're proba-
bly right, I said. One man's trash
is another's treasure let's get
em'!
Shifting gears back and forth
from forward to neutral, Elbows
meticulously maneuvered the
boat from flower to flower while
I laid across the bow picking the
beauties from the bayou. Not
one was left behind we res-
cued the entire bouquet includ-
ing the baby's breath and leather
leaf ferns. As it turned out, it
was one huge arrangement, a
couple of dozen carnations at
least.
Laughing and having a good
ole time, and with my too-huge-
not-to-notice bouquet in hand,
we docked at LuLu's and
trekked barefoot through the
white hot sand, making our way
to the shelter of the thatched-
roof bar.
We ordered the Sunday morn-
ing drink special two of the
"four-you-hit-the-floor" Cadillac
margaritas over ice. They were


so good we ordered another and
another and another and half
way through the fourth, Elbows
begins to think we're being
stared at, in discontent no less. -
Shut-up and quit mumbling
Elbows before your ice melts, I
said.
Tapping our toes in the sand
and singing along with the
acoustic players' rendition of
Cheeseburger in Paradise our
gumbo and oyster po boys
arrived.
Simply, there was no excuse
for having all this fun we
were drunk and heavy into it
when LuLu Buffett got up on the
stage asking for a brief moment
of silence to remember a friend
who had on this very day, eight-
years ago, died in a plane crash
on this very bay.
Wide-eyed I looked over at
Elbows and he looked back at
me and we both looked down at
that damn too-huge-not-to-notice
bouquet of flowers lying there
on our table.
I summoned the courage to
look up at the crowd and my
worst nightmare was staring me
in the face. Every single person
in the house had drawn a bead
on that too-huge-not-to-notice
bouquet, the memorial flowers
that had been dropped into the
water in memory of the fallen
pilot.
Elbows began singing an
almost imperceptible refrain of
Lynard Skynard's "Give Me
Three Steps" when everything
went fuzzy.

Ragan today's featured artist


Exhibition held
'on the porch'
at co-op gallery
By ALISON SCHAEFFLER-MURPHY
L'Attitudes Contributor

A artist Caren Ragan adds
charm and personality
to all things living and
that is why the Bougainvillea
House Gallery welcomes her
as the newest member. To cel-
ebrate her as the gallery's
newest edition, she's also this
month's featured artist for
Arts On The Porch.
A visit to Ragan's Web
site, www.portraitsby
ragan.com, shows the extent
of her talents. Ragan enjoys
working on a commission
basis for portraits of family,
friends and pets. Since living
in the Keys, she has become
enamored by our sunsets and
with our wildlife. Her free-
lance work illustrates many of
our fine feathered friends in
illustrious light.
As a portrait artist who
works in both oils and pastels,
Ragan has become nationally
recognized for her ability to
inspire the viewer to appreci-
ate each subject's distinctive
individuality. Whether Ragan
she's depicting a beloved
child, adult,, pet, or any num-
ber of our local birds or other

Murder on Matecumbe!.


New book shows
plight of Keys
veterans in '30s
By MICHAEL WELBER
L'Attitudes contributor

While the often-heard
catchphrase "Support
our troops" has been
popular with the public, the
stark reality has been much
different. Whether it's the
deplorable conditions exposed
recently at Walter Reed
Hospital or the government's
denial of the effects of Agent
Orange in Vietnam, the gov-
ernment both Republican
and Democratic has been


reluctant, in fact, to support
the troops.
This was particularly true
after World War I. When U.S.
soldiers sailed off to Europe to
fight the "war to end all wars"
they left jobs and families for
what turned out to be a bloody
and dirty war. The conflict
cost 116,708 American lives.
According to the authors of
"The Bonus Army: An
American Epic," "The veter-
ans found their jobs filled by
others or their farms lost to
creditors and back taxes." The
men were paid very poorly -
just one dollar a day for
their service ard didn't get the
more generous benefits that

modern soldiers receive.
The book, in almost daily
detail, describes a long
sequence of events culminat-
ing in the infamous Labor Day
hurricane that killed hundreds
of veterans in the Florida
Keys. It's an often told story
.but the book provides many
untold details about the
tragedy and poses an impor-
tant question about whether
the government could have
saved these men from grue-
some deaths cause by the most
powerful hurricane to ever hit
the U.S. mainland.
Beginning with efforts to
get the U.S. Congress to grant
a bonus, authors Paul Dickson
and Thomas B. Allen, describe
how a group of former soldiers
put together what came to be
called the Bonus
Expeditionary Force or
Bonus Army to march on
Washington D.C. and
demand pay-
ment for
their time in
uniform.
While
Congress

overrode
President
Calvin
Coolidge's veto
in 1924 to pass t s

Over 600,000 people were out
of work in Chicago alone.
While private groups such as


the Salvation Army helped
feed people, the federal gov-
ernment did very little.
Veterans groups decided
they wanted to get their bonus
money early to help them say
afloat during very hard times.
So, in June of 1932, about
15,000 veterans descended on
Washington some coming
by freight train and some even
on foot to convince
Congress to grant immediate
payment. Eventually, under
presidential orders, General
Douglas MacArthur drove the
veterans out at the point of a
bayonet. Some died.
When Franklin Roosevelt
was elected in 1932, he also
opposed the bonus because of
the cost. However, in order to
help pull the country out of
the Depression, he created the
Federal Emergency Relief
Administration to provide
work for those without jobs. In
1935, FERA sent a group of
700 World War I veterans to
the Keys to help build a high-
way to Key West so that the
city could become a tourist
destination and survive the
destitution it endured.
The chapter in "The Bonus
Army" on the Labor Day
Hurricane provides a fascinat-
ing look into how natural
events can change history. In a
story that's familiar to many
Keys residents, the unnamed
storm with winds of 200 mph
and an 18-foot storm surge
destroyed a train sent to rescue
veterans working on Upper
Matecumbe Key. I I

Kids gather at Nelson English Park in Key West for the annual
Juneteenth celebration, which this year is scheduled for June
16. All are invited to the free event.

Celebrate in

Bahama Village


Lots to do at
Nelson English
on Juneteenth
On June 16, Juneteenth
Freedom Celebration Day
will be observed at
Nelson English Park at the corer
of Catherine and Thomas streets
in Key West from 6 to 9 p.m.
Juneteenth is the oldest
known celebration of the end of
slavery, an international celebra-
tion for many African
Americans, reminding all of us
of the triumph of the human
spirit over the cruelty of slavery.
While President Lincoln
signed the Emancipation
Proclamation on January 1,
1863, the word did not reach
parts of Texas and other southern
states until June 19, 1865.
Hence, Juneteenth is celebrated
internationally as an important
date in African American history.
An evening of music by local
DJs and rappers, gospel music,
food and soft drinks, games and
prizes, as welLas education,


counseling and free HIV testing
have been organized by AIDS
Help, Coral City Elks Club,
Monroe County Health
Department, Human Services
Associates, Inc., Care Center for.
Mental Health,
Interdenominational Ministerial
Alliance, and City of Key West
Parks and Recreation department
and other volunteers.
"This is an opportunity for
the African American communi-
ty to acknowledge this important
event in our history and to call
attention to issues today such as
substance abuse and HIV that
would enslave our youth," said
Hayward
Magby, AIDS Help health
educator and organizer of the
event.
The event is free and open to
the public.
This event is also the opening
of Goombay Summer Fest that
will culminate on July 7 with a
Bahmniian i,) le concen at the
Truman iWatrfro'ot.


Blackman works on display


Watercolors go

on Wednesday
Mary Blackman, local
watercolorist, is the
featured artist at the
Key West Art Center from
June 13 through 27.
Years of scuba diving,
kayaking, and exploring the
Keys backcountry have given
her an insight reflected in the
approach to her work. The
realistic paintings depict a
variety of plants, birds and
other creatures encountered
in her adventures.
She and her husband Alex
have recovered driftwood
and exotic hardwoods from
the mangroves, which Alex
fashions into frames to com-
plement the paintings. The
paintings are enhanced by
the rustic quality of this
wood that is water worn from
drifting in the Gulf stream
and cast ashore by the

Veterans horror told


BONUS / From 6

One eyewitness saw, "the
incredible horror of bodies
lying in windows, bodies
rolling midst sunken boats
[sic], bodies hanging from
trees, bodies protruding
from the sand ... They had
literally been sandblasted to
death.
One person who came to
report on the scene was
SErnest Hemingway, driving
up from his home in Key
West. He was horrified by
what he saw and wrote a
strong article about the dev-
astation. He and others felt
there had been enough
warning, "the construction
companies had pulled out
their equipment in advance
of the storm and that the
government was culpable
for the deaths."
It's a fascinating tale told


in great detail for the history
buffs. There are nearly 100
pages of notes, appendices
and bibliography. The section
on the storm alone makes the
book worth reading for Keys
residents, even those familiar
with the events of 1935.
For a good overview of
this period of history, take a
look at the Web sites created
by Keys historian Jerry
Wilkinson, which tell the
story with.maps and photos.
They include: www.keys
history.org/Bridge-that-
never-was.html, www

Ragan's work showing


RAGAN / From 5

Greene and Harvey
Dinnerstein. Her talents were
further honed with studies at
the New York Academy of
Art and the National
Academy of Art.
Ragan's gallery and muse-
um exhibitions are equally
impressive. She has enjoyed
representation in the
Northeast at the Salmagundi
Gallery, Stone Ridge Gallery,
Giverny Gallery, and the
Noel Fine Art Gallery to
name a few. In Florida, her
work has been shown in the
Miami Metropolitan
Museum, Coral Springs'
Schacknower Museum, Boca
Raton's City Hall, and the
Fort Lauderdale Art at the
Airport.
Locally, her art can be
viewed at the Bougainvillea
House Gallery or the Key
West Art Center.
Ragan teaches workshops
and private lessons to chil-
dren and adults and is cur-
rently setting up a series of
workshops in classical draw-
ing and painting techniques.
This series of weeklong
classes begins Friday at the
SKey West Art Center.
Visitors to the
Bougainvillea House Gallery
today will enjoy not only
viewing her paintings, but
also examples of her fine tal-
ents as a portrait artist.
Ragan will be on hand to
talk with visitors about her
life as an artist, her love of


the Keys and her upcoming
painting and drawing classes.
The gallery is at 12420
Overseas Highway in
Marathon and is open from
10 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the
summer.
For more, call the gallery
at 743-0808.

Take a class
Ragan is teaching an art
class June 15 from 11 a.m. to
2 p.m. at the Key West Art
Center.
The class runs for nine
sessions and is open to pro-
fessional painters and begin-
ners.
Classic drawing covers
topics such as how to use a
plumb line, composition, val-
ues, shadows, weight of line,
light and dark shapes, learn-
ing how to draw or paint
what you see, and making
artistic decisions. The idea is
to take these methods to pro-
duce. a realistic drawing that
has dimension, interest and
the sensitivity of the artists
hand, similar to Albert Durer
drawings.
Students will need pencils
2h, hb, 2b, 4b, white
charcoal, and sepia a
drawing board, white paper
and colored canson or
mitientes paper (gray or
blue) and a kneaded eraser.
Cost of is $250 and the
class may evolve into further
studies to develop paintings.
Call Ragan at 304-9851 or
e-mail her at carenragan@
aol.com for more informa-
tion or to register.

Island Sun Splash a family affair


Events cater
to all levels
of diving skill
W arm water welcomes
water-lovers at Island
Sun Splash '07, which
kicks off Sunday and runs
through June 16 at multiple ven-
ues in the Upper Keys.
Organized by the Upper Keys
Association of Dive and Snorkel
Operators, the event includes
activities for everyone from
experienced divers to families
visiting North America's only
living coral barrier reef for the
first time. Special events directed
at youngsters are a hallmark of
Island Sun Splash.
"Kids are the future of diving
so let's get them involved," said
Kenny Wheeler, one of the
event's organizers. "We want
people to know that the 'Dive
Capital of the World,' Key
Largo, and our close neighbors


to the south are the perfect desti-
nations for families to dive and
snorkel."
Discover Scuba diving class-
es offer visitors their first taste of
diving. Snorkeling lessons are
set to make sightseeing from the
water's surface a fun and safe
experience.
Underwater photography and
video seminars are accompanied
by photo and video contests,
with separate divisions for kids
and adults. Professional under-
water photographers Tom and
Therisa Stack and Emmy-win-
ning videographer Frazier
Nivens are presenting "how to"
seminars and direct the contests.
Mixing fun above and below
the water is the Land & Sea
Photo Scavenger Hunt, during
which contestants must seek out
and photograph local landmarks
and beautiful reef fish to earn
points and win prizes. Every kid
age 15 and younger that partici-


pates in the junior division will
be a prize winner.
Kids also can enter the Junior
Olympics, a set of in-pool games
that focus on fun, sportsmanship
and competition.


Studios expands artists' spaces


Deadline for
application is
Wednesday

Approaching its one-year
anniversary, The Studios
of Key West is embark-
ing on an ambitious growth plan
to support local artists, audi-
ences and cultural experiences.
The next phase, set for August,
involves the addition of six
additional creative workspaces
in the Historic Key West
Armory.
"We're very excited about
offering more subsidized studios
for Key West writers and
artists," said Bob Muens, chair-


man of the organization's board.
"And the end of the year will
also see enhanced offerings in
workshops, public programs,
and creative opportunities."
The first group of studios
opened in late 2006 on the first
floor of the Armory at 600
White St. Those selected to uti-
lize the space included mixed-
media creator Cayman Smith-
Martin, painter Peter Vey, writer
Mark Heddon, and collage and
mixed-media artist Debra Yates.
All studios applications are
reviewed and ranked by an inde-
pendent jury based on the sam-
ples and responses provided.
New studio spaces range in


price from $175 monthly to
$350.
"My space at the Armory
affords soaring ceilings that fill
the room with the beautiful clear
light of Key West," Vey said.
"The energy generated through
the interaction and creative
camaraderie with the other
artists is truly wonderful, and
our experience here continues to
develop every day."
Artists and writers who
would like to be considered for
upcoming studios spaces,
expected to be ready after Aug.
1, are urged to apply. The dead-
line is Wednesday.
Applications are available at
the armory, or by request them
at 296-0458 or info@tskw.org.


The Reef Environmental
Education Foundation conducts
its popular fish ID classes so no
introductions will be necessary
when snorkelers and divers
come nose to snout with the
local underwater inhabitants.
Shallow reefs and wrecks in
calm, clear water await newly-
certified and less experienced
divers, while advanced divers
can make the journey down to
various shipwrecks.
For extremely experienced
divers, seminars that focus on
deep technical diving are avail-
able. One of the week's antici-
pated highlights is a trip to the
new Florida Keys History of
Diving Museum, which houses '
an unparalleled collection of his-
toric dive gear. The museum fea-
tures a special collection dedicat-
ed to Art McKee, a treasure
diver from Islamorada regarded
as the "father of recreational div-
ing."
Dr. Sally Bauer, co-founder
of the museum, are offering
seminars on the history of diving
and show how recreational div-
ing actually got its start in the

trips, introductory sailing lessons
and a fishing clinic at the
Worldwide Sportsman store in
Islamorada.
A family barbecue and
awards party wraps up the week-
long event.

Island Sun Splash cost $20 per
adult and $10 per youngster age
