The Florida Legislature's

The Legislature approved a
two-prong approach to ease prop-

The first, effective immediate-
ly, requires local governments to
reduce taxing levels for the 2007-
08 budget year to between 3 per-
cent to 7 percent from the current
budget year.
The second phase of relief, a
massive expansion of the
$25,000 homestead exemption,
would not go into effect unless
approved in a statewide referen-

The huge trenching machine

Second stage goes to voters


TAXES / From I

that Saunders says will hurt the
state's education system.
"Monroe County schools
would lose $5.3 million over the
next five years if the plan pass-
es," he said.
The proposal would give
homeowners the opportunity to
choose between the current Save
Our Homes constitutional
amendment that caps annual
assessments at 3 percent and a
new "super exemption" that
would exempt the first $200,000
value of a home.
Valuation between $300,000
and $500,000 would earn an
additional 15 percent exemption.
Any home valued at $500,000
and up would get a maximum
exemption of $195,000.
"It only gives relief to home-


steaded properties," Saunders
said. "Second homes, rentals or
commercial properties, it gives
zero relief."
And it provides less protection
in high-cost coastal counties
where real estate values have
escalated the most, including the
Keys.
Local budget officials were
preparing for the worst and some
seemed actually relieved at the
mandate to roll back only into the
single digits.
Monroe County Budget
Director Sal Zappulla said the
cuts should amount to a savings
of a little Over $1,000 "per capital.
"It's better for everyone," he
said, noting that the Legislature,
during its regular session, was
looking at rolling rates back
below 2004 levels. With continu-
ously increasing property values,
that rollback would have made it


difficult for the county to contin-
ue offering all of the services it
does, he said.
Key West Financial Director
Rodger Wittenberg was not so
upbeat.
"This will probably affect all
city departments," he said Friday.
"In order to achieve it, we will
have to spread it across the
board."
Peter Rosasco, an independent
contractor overseeing Marathon's
budget process, says the 5 per-
cent rollback that Marathon will
be required to achieve won't be
too difficult.
"Five percent is pretty much
what we were aiming at any-
how," he said.
Local officials were leery of
speculating on the second phase
of the tax reform until the refer-
endum gets a little closer.


Flats fishing 'is who we are'


EVERGLADES / From 1

"We see impacts from [boat]
groundings and propeller scar-
ring," Kimball said. "We're try-
ing to come up with a strategy to
mitigate some of the impacts we
are seeing."
The National Park Service
will not release its preferred alter-
native until next summer, but has
floated possible scenarios that
would ban boat motors in less
than 3 feet of water or close some
popular spots to powerboats.
Comments made at a series of
seven South Florida workshops,
in addition to written remarks,
will be used to shape a draft plan
due in summer 2008.
Brown remembered when
sportsmen supported the mid-
1980s ban on commercial net-
fishing in the Everglades, the net-
ters told guides, "You guys are
going to be next."
"I thought it was [nonsense]
but it's happening," Brown said.
"If you don't think you can be
next, think again."
After a June 7 presentation at
a Key Largo meeting, Kimball
took just one question from the
audience before directing those in
attendance to speak with him pri-
vately or with other park staff.
"I've never been to a public
workshop where no questions
were allowed," Islamorada angler
Jim Trice told Kimball. "It would


be nice to see some questions
entertained instead of saying go
to your little comers."
At the Islamorada session,
people were invited to address
the audience.
Islamorada hotelier Deb Gillis
said half her customers come to
Islamorada to fish, and most plan
to fish in Florida Bay.
"If they can't get out to the
backwaters, they won't come
back," Gillis said. "To close [the
bay] would be devastating to
more than fishermen.... Hotels go
Saway, then restaurants go away. It
trickles down."
Richard Black, a recent Coral
Shores High School graduate
who grew up fishing Florida Bay,
said park proposals "overlook the
real problems, which are Big
Sugar, overpopulation and maybe
even some of the roadwork
around here."
Several speakers endorsed
proposals to require a Florida
Bay boating permit earned
through education or experience.
"You've got to educate users
before anything else," said
Robert Clift of the National Parks
Conservation Association. "The
only way to make it effective is to
make it mandatory."
Bob Geh, who worked as a
concession boat guide from
Flamingo in the mid-1990s,
charged that park staff intention-
ally .let park roads and facilities
"rust; rot and deteriorate" to


restrict visitor access.
"They're trying to turn an
adventurous place into a tram
tour," Geh said.
Away from the podium,
Islamorada Mayor Dave Boerner
said the municipality plans to
make its voice heard in the
Everglades debate.
"Look at just about every [pro-
motional] picture of Islamorada,"
Boemer said. "What do you see?
A guy polling a flats boat in
Florida Bay. It's who we are."
The only picture of a skiff
shown in the Park Service pres-
entation, he added, "is a boat
leaving a prop scar. That offends
me."
For discussion purposes, the
Park Service produced maps
depicting four alternatives.
Alternative A would change
nothing; the most restrictive -
Alternative D envisions ban-
ning motors in vast swaths of
shallow bay motor.
"That's so drastic it's ridicu-
lous," said Ted D'Esposito,
retired after a 33-year career as
an offshore captain. "It's way out
* of line. And once the government
takes something, they don't give
it back."
D'Esposito said Florida Bay
was his personal "getaway" from
his workplace in the Florida
Straits. "I'd take friends fishing at
the, bridges," he said, "but I
wouldn't take them into Florida
Bay. That was mine."


Due to an editing error,
a story in Wednesday's
edition about proposed
cuts in property taxes
contained incorrect infor-
mation. The plan out of
the Legislature would roll
back taxing rates to the
2006-07 levels, then cut an
additional percentage. It
would take a two-thirds
vote to supercede the
requirement to maintain
the 2006-07 budget levels.

An immense trenching machine digs through the U.S. 1 median

Keys Aqueduct Authority's main pipeline.


Pipes going on tour

project area is buried in the U.S.
1 median.
For the first time in the utili-
ty's history, the FKAA board
authorized paying a bonus if the
work is completed before a
December contractual deadline.
"We've always had the stick
of penalties for not meeting dead-
lines, so now we're trying the
carrot of a bonus for early com-
pletion," said Colleen Tagle,
FKAA spokeswoman.
A series of pipeline breaks and
leaks in the Tavemier area are
traced to the 1980-82 construc-
tion of the existing system.
FKAA engineers believe the con-
tractor failed to properly cushion
the pipeline with a layer of dirt to


protect the line from the jagged
rock that surrounds it.
Highly pressurized water
causes the pipeline to vibrate,
which causes problems when it
wears against a sharp coral rock.
Several leaks last year triggered
countywide boil-water orders.
The FKAA plans to take a 10-
foot-long sample section of the
pipeline on a countywide tour so
residents can see the concrete-
lined steel pipe that provides vir-
tually all the Keys' drinking
water.
"The contractor thinks we're
crazy," Tagle said, "but we think
it will be a good exhibit for com-
munity events."
A special corrosion-resistant
covering will be applied to the
outside of the pipeline for added
protection.

Dead boater ID'd,
no foul play found

Monroe County Sheriff's
Office detectives say they have
identified a man found dead on a
sailboat in the Marquesas Keys
Monday.
According to the Medical
Examiner's Office, preliminary
autopsy results show Russell
Winko, 60, of Big Coppitt Key


most likely died of natural caus-
es.
According to his brother,
he'd been on a sailing excursion
for just over 30 days and was
expected back any day. He said
Winko loved to sail alone, and
would many times return just to
re-provision before going back
out again.
Winko was a retired deputy
from the Jacksonville Sheriff's
Office.

3-day watering


rule goes to board


It would stand
even without
drought conditions
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Even a wet June has done lit-
tle to quench South Florida's
ongoing drought.
Lake Okeechobee remained
at record low levels this week, as
the South Florida Water
Management District prepares to
impose permanent lawn-water-
ing restrictions.
Five public workshops are
slated in a four-day span this
week as district staffers finalize a
rule to limit landscape irrigation
to three days per week through-
out South Florida even when
there is no water emergency as
we have now.
None of the five workshops
will be held in Monroe County.
The closest session to the
Keys is planned for 10 a.m.
Monday at the district's Miami
field station, 9001 NW 58th St.
Using a rapid timetable for
the approval process, the Water
Management District board
could formally adopt the perma-
nent rule at its July 12 meeting in
West Palm Beach. It would take
effect this fall.
"This water shortage has
taught us all critical lessons
about the limitations of our water
resources," district Executive
Director Carol Ann Wehle said in
a prepared statement.
"We have also learned more
about the benefits of individual
water conservation, and that with
moderate rainfall our lawns can
survive and thrive on as little as
once-a-week watering," Wehle
said.
Because of the water emer-
gency, Monroe and Miami-Dade
counties are limited to two days a
week for most landscape water-
ing and vehicle washing.
Broward and Palm Beach
have been under one-day-a-week
rules, but recent rains likely will
allow those areas to return to a
twice-a-week schedule.
The permanent three-day-a-
week rule for all 16 counties in
the South Florida Water


Management District has been
used in Southwest Florida since
2003.
Landscape irrigation would
be permitted before 10 a.m. and
after 4 p.m. Monday,
Wednesday and Saturdays for
homes and businesses with odd
street addresses; or Tuesdays,
Thursday and Sundays for
homes and businesses with even
street addresses. No landscape
irrigation is permitted on
Friday.
There are rule exemptions for
newly installed landscaping.
Lake Okeechobee levels were
at 8.94 feet Friday, still below
then-record levels recorded dur-
ing the 2001 drought.
Southeast Florida has enjoyed
a soggy year, with above-aver-
age rainfall of 20.85 inches
recorded from Jan. 1 through
Thursday in Miami-Dade.
At Lake Okeechobee, howev-
er, rainfall levels for 2007 have
been measured at 8.27 inches -
barely half the rain expected in a
normal year.

Storm knocks out
power in Key Largo

An intense thunderstorm
blew through the Key Largo
area Wednesday night, causing
power outages in several neigh-
borhoods.
According to the Florida
Keys Electric Cooperative, in
the Port Largo area, a tarp blew
into power lines, cutting power
from Port Largo to Publix for
one hour, 11 minutes.
Around the same time, a
fault at Adobe Casa Court
caused a local outage. The line
was restored in 30 minutes and
power was restored to Adobe
Casa in a little over an hour.
In Pirate's Cove, a trans-
former fuse blew on Jolly Roger
Drive. That street was out for a
little over an hour. Arica Drive
lost power for more than two
hours.
The storm also caused struc-
tural damage at Largo Honda.

Don't let the tax cuts

cut human services

Whoooeeee!
We think that's close to capturing the kind of whooping and
hollering that took place in Tallahassee this week as the Florida
Legislature voted out the largest tax cuts in state history.
Along largely party lines, the Republican-led House and
Senate proudly touted $31.6 billion in cuts over the next five
years.
But and it's a big but those kinds of savings will come
only if phase two of the tax cut plan makes it past voters this
January. And Democrats are already lined up with objections,
especially $7 billion-plus in cuts to school funding.
There may be other sounds heard when news about the cuts
begin to sink in, including some cries of anguish as the health
and human-services network our critical safety net gets
riddled with more holes by budget cutters sitting far away in
Tallahassee.
Talk to any of the myriad nonprofits that struggle to shelter
battered women, or feed the homeless, or mentor a teen headed
down the wrong path and you will learn about budget cuts.
Over the past five years, as many local taxing bodies grew fat
with property tax revenues fueled by the real estate boom, health
and human service agencies were asked to diet.
And they've been doing with less for so long it's hard to imag-
ine how many more "whooeees" in Tallahassee they can stand.
Oh, there are plenty of examples of waste in local government.
Just in cost overruns alone, Monroe County may be going for a
record.
So as the state lawmakers hand off the task of cutting services
to local jurisdictions, we hope health and human services are
protected from more cutting, especially services that touch our
young people, the elderly, working poor, and the homeless.
Perhaps we all should pledge the first place to cut: those
grandiose capital projects that we can't afford right now.
The city of Marathon and village of Islamorada both recognize
this movement, both putting off any expensive city-hall projects
and staying in temporary quarters.
The county has invested a lot in the Hickory House purchase,
the planned Vandenberg' artificial reef, cost overruns at the
Jackson Square courthouse and the Key West airport.
We can't afford any more big-ticket projects with runaway
cost overruns.
And we can't afford to lose any more families because the
already tattered safety net is forced to take even more cuts.
All in all, we think it's far too soon for anyone to be hollering
"whoopee" until we see the 2007-08 budgets crafted by local
taxing authorities and who bears the brunt of cuts.

District's workforce housing plan must advance


EDITOR:
The Key West Chamber of Commerce sup-
ports the initiatives of the Monroe County
School Board in developing certain of its avail-
able property holdings to provide much-needed
affordable housing for its workforce.
The School Board has approved a plan to
build 28 affordable houses on land behind
Sugarloaf School and is actively pursuing devel-
opment of the property currently housing its
administrative offices and bus facilities at
Trumbo Point in Key West.
Response to requests for proposals for devel-
opment of the Trumbo property envision build-
ing an additional 145 mixed-income workforce
housing units on the six acres it owns, but could
expand to 171 units if merged with an adjoining
acre owned by the city of Key West, as proposed
by Mayor Morgan McPherson. The scope could
increase even further if taken to include the
Trumbo Roadway itself and eventual redevelop-
ment of Porter Place to replace those 133 rental
units with 176 affordable units, so that over 200
new affordable housing units for the Key West
workforce would be available.
But what does this take? We see with the
Sugarloaf proposal that it has taken a willingness
and partnership among the School District, the
private developer and the area neighbors to get
the job done. Each partner has needed to bring


trust, understanding, patience and flexibility to
the table.
The Trumbo property, being almost eight
times larger in terms of units and involving a
partnership to not only include the School
District, the private developer and neighbors
could potentially grow to a partnership that also
includes the city of Key West, the Key West
Housing Authority and the business community.
Lest there be doubt about the need for afford-
able housing, the records of the Monroe County
Property Appraiser's Office put the average sell-
ing price of a single-family home in Key West at
$899,432 in 2006, hardly affordable for a
teacher, policeman, nurse, waiter, fisherman,
your local pharmacist or perhaps even you. The
stakes are enormously high the future of our
city.
If we are to remain a unique and vibrant city,
one human family rich in its diversity, then truly
this issue needs action now, not five or 10 years
from now.
The chamber, as it represents the business
community, is committed to the School District's
plans to develop its properties to provide afford-
able workforce housing and calls upon all in the
partnership to bring that spirit of trust, under-
standing, patience and flexibility to the process.
Greg Sullivan, president
Key West Chamber of Commerce


New sidewalk already deficient


EDITOR:
Has anyone been bike riding over on the
Key West International Airport side of the
island where they have been building a new
sidewalk and widening the road?
I could not believe how much this new
sidewalk is already cracking and chipping out.
It will not take long until it is just like the
sidewalks along Roosevelt Boulevard.
Roosevelt is awful to try to ride a bike on and
miss all the holes. But for this A1A project to
be just built and having cracks and holes and
they aren't finished with the road yet?
Taxpayers beware: You are in for more

Support new band director
EDITOR:
Thank you to the city of Marathon,
Marathon High School/Middle School and
Stanley Switlik Elementary for their support
with the school band programs. The past two
years have been a great experience for our
bands ind I sincerely regret having to leave.
I will miss everyone involved, especially the
students.
Please welcome Steven Whitfield as the
new band director. Since he accepted the
position, I have had the opportunity to work
with Mr. Whitfield to help make a smooth
transition. After meeting him, I can tell that
he will do what is best for our students. I am
confident that Mr. Whitfield will do a great
job.

so I have seen new concrete poured and after
it dries within a few days, it is cracking and
will wash away or out come high water.
The foundation is below standards and ...
the asphalt, when laid, will crack and we will
have holes in our new road shortly. But I
guess that is why they keep working.

Planning board not doing its job


EDITOR:
The three words that describe
the Keys are development, devel-
opment, development, but lately
the word is redevelopment, all in
the name of affordable housing,
which in many cases is unafford-
able. The developers have found a
way to build market rate housing
by buying up RV parks, mobile-
home parks and marinas.
Key Largo from Tavernier to
mile marker 106, the count is
three marinas, six mobile-home
parks and RV parks are gone
including some conversions of
motels and hotels into condo
hotels. The county has 2,400
room condotel conversions, not to
mention RV parks, mobile-home
parks and marinas countywide.
This is a lot of building outside of
permit allocations. The Keys are a
string of islands.
Standing on the centerline of
U.S. 1, you can point to every
major development in the Keys.
We have the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary and
Everglades National Park. Others
are Dagny Johnson Key Largo
Hammock State Park, the
National Key Deer Refuge and
the Great White Heron Wildlife
Refuge.
The Keys are for all practical
purposes a state and national
park. Think of the rest of the state
and nation as a box or square.
Build a street or highway and
development can proceed in all
four directions. The point is that
the Keys are different and unique
in the entire nation.
The county commissioners and
planning commissioners must
keep this reality clearly in focus.


The planning commissioners sit-
ting on the right side of the dais
are perceived as biased toward
development interests, especially
Planning Commissioner Donna
Windle, who never saw a devel-
opment she didn't love. She
makes statements, quoted in the
newspapers, like this is not a fish-
ing village anymore and wealthier
and wealthier people keep coming
here and theirs are the needs we
need to serve.
It is incredible that a sitting
planning commissioner has such a
mind set.
Traffic congestion, deteriorat-
ing coral reef and a severe water
shortage during which you may
be able to walk across Lake
Okeechobee do not factor in. The
primary concern is development.
She seems to want to accom-
plish for the Upper, Middle and
Lower Keys what was done to
Key West complete and total
build-out.
The commissioner sitting next
to Commissioner Windle is very
frequently absent from the com-
mission meetings. The Planning
Commission is extremely impor-
tanit to growth management in the
Keys. It is one of the most impor-
tant appointments that a county
commissioner can make and
should be taken very seriously.
The decisions the Planning
Commission makes on our land
development regulations and our
2010 comprehensive plan that are
passed on to the County
Commission will affect Monroe
County and the residents for
decades.

Delta's Keys'service not that good


EDITOR:
Here is another take on Delta
Airlines' service and pricing in
the Keys.
I plan to fly round trip to
Grand Rapids, Mich., in August.
Delta offers the most efficient
routing, flying nonstop to Atlanta
and then nonstop to Grand
Rapids.
Round-trip fare, Marathon to
Grand Rapids, is $551. From Key
West, the fare is the same, $551.
However, if I am willing to fly
Delta from Fort Lauderdale to
Atlanta and take the same con-
necting flight to Grand Rapids,
round trip fare is $250. I can fly
with a competitor from Key West
to Fort Lauderdale round trip for
$200, an overall savings of $100.


If I drive to Fort Lauderdale, I
can save a total of $200, less the
inconvenience, of course.
Lest the fare disparity discour-
age one from flying Delta, the air-
line has added another negative
dimension. Everywhere in the
world that Delta flies, save two
locations, passengers are permit-
ted two bags to be checked
through. Guess where the two
locations are? Key West and
Marathon. When flying from the
Keys, Delta permits only one bag
to be checked through.
Who was it that said that Delta
was doing everything it could to
encourage flying from Marathon
or Key West?

May visit to the Middle Keys.


We need to get real about community


EDITOR:
I recently found out that Monroe
County Mayor Mario Di Gennaro paid
the Republican Party thousands of dol-
lars so he could be seen fishing with
Gov. Charlie Crist -off Marathon. I think
of the real improvement in public rela-
tions Di Gennaro could have achieved if
he had given that money to disadvan-
taged children here in the Keys.
There are several funds in this county
that would have appreciated getting that
money. Not to link Di Gennaro to Cay
Clubs, but Cay Clubs also has spent a
lot of money in this county to somehow
impress residents with the fact that they


are the good guys. It would have meant
a lot to this community if they had man-
aged their resources so as not to lay off
employees the way they have done
recently. Keeping people working would
have done a lot more for public rela-
tions than throwing money around to
impress people.
My point is this: If you are going to
be a part of this community, then live
that way; don't try to impress us with
these insincere attempts at good public
relations.

Mayor should resign over remarks


EDITOR:
While attending the April 24
Marathon City Council meeting, I was
shocked by remarks made by Mayor
Chris Bull.
I wrote to him and the entire council
calling for his resignation. He respond-
ed to me saying that he was sorry but it
wasn't meant to be a racial slur, as I
had seen it.
Sorry, I am still calling for his resig-
nation. This city needs leadership.
However, here it is my fellow citizens,
quote from Mayor Bull at the April 24
council meeting.


"... We're in a tourist economy. You
know darn well that those people pay,
try to find the cheapest labor in this
town, um, until you get people in here
that with ... deed-restricted affordable
housing in here that can live comfort-
ably, all's the people who are going to
be living here all are going to have
accents, all are going to be temporary
housing in here, um, and they're going
to be stockpiled in these million-dollar
homes um and, uh, until we do some-
thing and we have to do something..."

Fate of next BXRL tourney in limbo


Team owners say
they're being
left hanging
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The founder and television
host of the Billfish Xtreme
Release League said this week
he has no word on the fate of
the 2007 tournament series.
"I've been out of the country
and just got back," Norm Isaacs
said Wednesday. "I have no
idea if it's happening or not."
Fishing-team owners in the
BXRL which has a per-team
entry fee of $225,000 -
expected to hear earlier this
week if a tournament in St.
Martin would begin June 22 as
scheduled.
There was no official
announcement to the press, but
people affiliated with the league
said it appears almost certain
the St. Martin event will be can-
celled.
The BXRL, an affiliate of
Cay Clubs Resorts and


Marinas, also "postponed" its
May tournament in the Turks
and Caicos. Planned as a six-
tournament series, six teams
fished tournaments in Marathon
and Bimini.
Results from the Bimini
event have not been posted on
the BXRL Web site, last updat-
ed April 9.
Isaacs founded the BXRL in
2001 as a series designed for
televised competition that
would appeal to fishing audi-
ences. The ESPN2 channel has
televised tournament highlights
for the last six seasons.
In 2006, Isaacs sold control-
ling interest to Cristal Clear
BXRL Tournaments, whose
operating managers are listed as
Cay Clubs founder Dave Clark
and David Schwarz.
"I'm no longer involved with
the decision-making end of it,"
Isaacs said. "I'd hate to see it go
down the tubes, if it is going
down the tubes. I don't know
that it is."
BXRL Commissioner Chris
Brown told the Keynoter last
week that he expected the St.
Martin tournament to be held,
but he needed to confirm plans

at a weekend meeting of the
executive committee. Brown
could not be reached by press
time this week.
"There are several critical
elements to production of a
BXRL event," Brown said ear-
lier. "You need to get a lot of
cameramen out there, and these
are crews with specialized
equipment and the experience
to work in a small [boat] cock-
pit around judges and the
anglers."
After the Bimini tournament,
BXRL Executive Director Mike
Gautreaux did not renew his
contract. Several other people
involved with planning and
staging the tournaments report-
edly received word their servic-
es are no longer needed.
Isaacs has been living in a


Keys condominium provided
by Clark while Isaacs worked
with Cristal Clear on various
projects. Isaacs plans to move
in the near future.
Contrary to some reports on
local docks, Isaacs said he has
not been told to leave. "Is that
what they're saying?" he asked.
"I had not heard that."
"I came with the intent of
being involved with several dif-
ferent projects over the last year
and a half," Isaacs said.
"During that time, I was fur-
nished with a place to live while
I got situated and decided if this
was where I wanted to be. I
knew it wasn't going to be a
forever and ever thing." '
Isaacs said he has considered
"probably 50" homes or con-
dos, from the Keys to Jupiter, in


recent months.
He was in the Bahamas earli-
er this month to film an episode
of "Big Game Fishing The
World," a television series he
described as "still up and run-
ning strong."
The BXRL "is good enter-
tainment that promotes the
industry well," Isaacs said.
"The [anglers] seem to really
enjoy it and take a lot of pride
in it."
Isaacs said "it would be sad
to see it go away," but added,
"we are talking about a fishing
tournament."
Cay Clubs has laid off
dozens of workers in recent
months and a deal to.take con-
trol of four Key West restau-
rants apparently fell through
earlier this month.


Panel: Pinkus likely violated ethics


Commission
finds there is
probable cause
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Florida Commission on
Ethics found probable cause
June 8 to believe former
Marathon City Councilman Jeff
Pinkus violated the state's code
of ethics in two of 11 counts
brought against him.
The hearings were based on
information provided by
Marathon resident Rick Servais,
who filed the initial complaint.

SUPPLY OF HOT WATER!

(866)713-111

The commission ruled
Pinkus had a voting conflict
when he voted on resolutions in
2005 concerning a development
agreement for Key Colony Bay
Hotel, which was owned at the
time by the late Tracy Holder.
Holder was an executive at
Cay Clubs, where Pinkus is
employed as a projectmanager.
Commission documents say
Pinkus "explained that he voted
for the resolutions by mistake"
and evidence indicates he had
abstained when the resolutions
were addressed at first reading
on Nov. 1, 2005. The resolu-
tions were a development
agreement and major condition-
al use on the council's consent
agenda.
Commission spokeswoman
Kerrie Stillman said the next
step for Pinkus will be to "go to
a full evidentiary hearing before
an administrative law judge or
they can choose to reach a set-
tlement agreement with the
commission advocate."
Stillman said the most com-
mon resolution in these matters
is civil penalties, which can be
up to $10,000 per violation.
In addition, the commission
ruled that Pinkus had "a prohib-
ited conflict because of his con-
tractual relationship with a
developer whose interests were
discussed during a meeting with
city and county. School Board


officials concerning workforce
housing in which he participat-
ed."
However, commission advo-
cate James Peterson ruled that
because Pinkus was "working
toward a 'common good' at the
meeting in question, the com-
mission will take no further
action on the allegation."
The allegation centers
around a conference call attend-
ed by City Manager Mike Puto,
schools Superintendent Randy
Acevedo and Monroe County
Commissioner George Nuegent
to discuss development possi-
bilities for the former Marathon
Manornursing home.
Commission documents
indicate Pinkus expressed Cay
Clubs' interest in acquiring the
property and that Nuegent
protested due to Pinkus' "con-
flict of interest between his
position with Cay Clubs and his
membership of the Marathon
City Council."
The commission cleared
Pinkus on charges he had vio-
lated state gifts laws, accepted a
free membership to Sombrero
Beach Country Club when he
should have known it was given
to influence his votes as a coun-
cilman, voted on matters result-
ing in private gain, and misused
his office, official resources, or
information obtained for his
benefit.
Pinkus didn't return repeated
phone calls for comment.

This property at 1509 Harbor Drive in Marathon has basically become a parking lot for those
launching boats from the adjacent Dodge Lake boat ramp. Property owner Paul Van Buren
has placed a sign in front of the abandoned lot urging residents to embrace the idea of
making the lof a community park.


City: 'Park' is off limits


Residential lot
being used for
trailers, autos
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

City officials, at the direction
of the Marathon City Council, are
taking steps to shut down what
has fast become the unofficial
"Dodge Lake Park."
Several residents expressed
their disapproval at Tuesday's
council meeting with the proper-
ty at 1509 Harbor Drive being
used as a parking lot for vehicles
and trailers by those launching
boats at the recently renovated
Dodge Lake boat ramp, which
lies adjacent to the abandoned lot
at the corner of Aviation
Boulevard.
Residents near the area behind
the airport complained the con-
stant traffic puts their children in
danger and could potentially pre-
vent emergency vehicles from
servicing the area.
"He's doing whatever he
wants to do ... creating traffic for
the neighborhood," resident Dan
Piedra said. "It's not his commu-
nity, it's everybody's. He's
already calling it Dodge Lake
Park, but it's not a park."
The city contends property
owner Paul Van Buren of
Marathon has been using the res-


idential lot as a commercial
enterprise and directed City
Manager Mike Puto to resolve
the issue.
"It's clearly being used as a
commercial property and it's
becoming a nuisance and a haz-
ard to the whole community,"
Councilman Mike Cinque said at
Tuesday's meeting.
Puto told the Keynoter that
even though Van Buren does not
charge a fee to use the lot, the
Planning Department views it as
a commercial enterprise due to
the volume of vehicles and trailer
on the property.
Van Buren feels differently.
"I never either allowed nor


discouraged anybody from park-
ing or not parking on the proper-
ty I had acquired," he told the
Keynoter. "I was merely offering
a space for people to park safely
until the city said we need to look
at this and then talk about it."
Wednesday, Puto placed barri-
cades in front of the property to
prevent public access, but took
them away after meeting with
Van Buren's business partner.
Three signs indicating the lot is
off limits will be put up instead.
One will be at the boat ramp
itself, while the other.two will be
placed on electrical poles in front
of the property.
Puto said violators will likely
receive one warning before being
either ticketed or towed.

'Vandy' money no sure shot


By PAMELA J. SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor


Monroe County's request for
$2 million to sink a retired mili-
tary vessel off Key West to create
an artificial reef has caused con-
cern at the Tourist Development
Council potentially jeopardiz-
ing a key funding source for the
project and setting up a scenario
in which commissioners might
ignore a possible TDC recom-
mendation to deny the funds and
use the money for that purpose,
anyway.
TDC Marketing Director
Harold Wheeler said the board,
which met in regular session
Tuesday, engaged in a "reason-
able and rational discussion" of
Monroe County's requests for
TDC funds totaling $3.75 million.
A portion of those requests -
$2 million would be allocated
to reimburse the county for its
pledged contribution toward cre-
ating an artificial reef by sinking.
the USS Hoyt Vandenberg 7 miles
off Key West.
The TDC, with the input of its
five district advisory councils,
makes recommendations to the
County Commission about how
to spend a portion of the bed tax.
By state statute, that money is to
be allocated in a way that pro-
motes tourism.
Wlieeler said the board took
no official action but members
registered their concerns about
issues brought up by the county's
applications for funding.
First was the county's appeal
to the TDC to not only award the
funds to it, but also to commit to


paying out the majority of those
funds over the course of five
years.
"We've never encumbered
funds like that before," Wheeler
said. "What will happen is ... it
will knock out all the nonprofits
for funding in the future."
Nonprofit organizations are
among those to apply for TDC
funds each year to help maintain
local tourist attractions. Wheeler.
cited the Key West Tropical
Forest and Botanical Garden,
Dolphin Research Center, Crane
Point Museum and Jacobs
Aquatic Center as examples of
organizations typically applying
for TDC grants.
Each year the council accepts
requests for proposals from non-
profits, and increasingly, govern-
ments, throughout the Keys.
Each DAC reviews the fund-
ing requests submitted by organi-
zations within its respective dis--
trict, then makes recommenda-
tions to the TDC board regarding
which should receive the money,
and how much should be allocat-
ed.
The TDC board takes those
recommendations to the county
commissioners, who make the
final decision regarding who will
get the funds.
The TDC has already allocated
$1 million toward the Vandenberg
project.
"All five DAC chairs or vice
chairs [at Tuesday's board meet-
ing] said the same thing,"
Wheeler said. "The DACs don't
want to allocate funds over five


years because that would limit
what they would have available
for future projects."
Board member Rita Irwin said
she was also "highly concerned"
about the county's request.
"When you look at all the
applications and add the county
requests, they asked for more
money than there is to hand out,"
Irwin said. "It's like the goose
that laid the golden egg, and we
all know how that story ends."
Irwin said the board members
were also troubled by the coun-
ty's submission of multiple
requests for proposals containing
funding requests for the
Vandenberg project one to
each of the five districts.
"The DACs expressed their
concerns about funding a project
not in their district," Irwin
explained. "It is extraordinary for
all five districts to be asked to
fund a project in another district."
Monroe County Mayor Mario
Di Gennaro, a member of the TDC
board by virtue of his position as
mayor, was not present at
Tuesday's meeting. He said the
county made multiple applications
because the Vandenberg project
would benefit the entire area.
Asked if it's conceivably com-
missioners could override a pos-
sible TDC recommendation not
to give an additional $2 million
toward the Vandenberg project,
Di Gennaro answered, "Yes, it's
conceivable."
The DACs will meet to review
applications for funding July 10
and 11, and will make recom-
mendations to the TDC at its July
31 meeting.


Village OKs fire-station design


By ERIN EHRLICH
eehrlich@keysreporter.com

Islamorada's Village Council
on Thursday approved plans for a
$1.4 million building for fire-
fighters on Lower Matecumbe
Key.
Representatives from Currie,
Sowards, Aguila Architects said
they plan some "minor tweaking"
of the drawings and will be ready
for bidding by the end of July.
The design "is very tight, very
efficient," representative Jose
Aguila said. "There's very little
wasted corridor space."
Total project costs are estimat-
ed at $1.44 million about


$440,000 over budget.
"We had a tight budget, but
we've worked hard to get close,"
Islamorada Fire Chief William
Wagner III said. "I'm pretty
happy with what we have."
The two-bay station would
include three 8-foot-by-8-foot
dormitory rooms, a lobby,
kitchen and watch office.
The Village Council also
agreed to review 13 requests for
qualifications design propos-
als for a possible stand-alone
fire station on Plantation Key.
All council members said the
fire department, which has rented


its facilities for more than eight
years, needs to have its own
building.
The 13 proposals are from a
previous plan to build a fire sta-
tion and municipal center togeth-
er. On May 24, the council decid-
ed not to proceed with the com-
bined complex.
Village Manager Gary Word
said the council would have to
revise the scope of the project to
eliminate the municipal center.
Then, Islamorada could contact
architects of the proposals to see
if they approve the revisions.
The other option, Word said,
was to scrap all 13 proposals and
start over with new architects.

5 up for village


police chief


By ERIN EHRLICH
eehrlich@keysreporter.com

With the upcoming retire-
ment of Islamorada's Capt. Joe
Leiter, the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office and Village
Manager Gary Word will
choose a replacement from a
list of five contenders.
Noticeably absent from the
list of candidates is Leiter's sec-
ond in command, Lt. Tom
Brazil, who would fill in as
interim Islamorada commander
in Leiter's absence.
Sheriff Rick Roth gave his
list of five candidates to replace
Leiter on Tuesday. Islamorada
contracts out with the Sheriff's
Office for police coverage.
Word said he plans to estab-
lish an interview panel that will
help make a final decision.
Those who have applied to
replace Leiter are all high-rank-
ing officers involved in Keys


law enforcement.
Capt. Penny Phelps, the only
woman. on the list, heads the
Stock Island Detention Center.
Second-in-command appli-
cants include Lt. Mitch Snider
from the Cudjoe Key substa-
tion, Lt. Mitch Hor from the
Ocean Reef substation and Lt.
Don Fanelli from the Plantation
Key station.
From Islamorada, Lt. Corey
Bryan, who works in special
investigations, is also being
considered.
Word said he hopes to make
a final decision sometime in
July.
Leiter, 59, and a 27-year
Sheriff's Office veteran, is retir-
ing in August. He said he plans
to spend time between the Keys
and Lake Wales with his fiance,
former village Councilwoman
Patty Schmidt.


The rescued deaf Atlantic
bottlenose dolphin known as
Castaway gave birth to a calf
Monday, only to have the calf
die Friday morning at the
Marine Mammal Conservancy's
rehabilitation center in Key
Largo.
The male infant died at 11:12
a.m., according to Robert
Lingenfelser, president of the
conservancy.
"About 9 p.m. last night, we
noticed the infant was showing
signs of distress," Lingenfelser
said in a press release. "Its
breathing was labored and it was
struggling to swim."
Lingenfelser said conservan-
cy veterinarians and volunteers
stayed with the calf through the
night helping it swim as well as
nursing and administering drugs
to the mammal.
"Everything that could have
been done was done,"
Lingenfelser said.
He said that early Friday
morning, the calf showed signs
of improving, but at 10 a.m. the
calf's condition deteriorated.


"There is a profound sense of
sadness here," Lingenfelser said.
The mother originally strand-
ed off Vero Beach in November,
but was deemed healthy enough
for release after convalescing for
more than two months at Mote
Marine Laboratory in Sarasota.
Instead of swimming off-
shore, she returned to the beach
three times. She was then trans-
ported to the Keys fqr rehabilita-
tion at the conservancy, where
veterinarians and an expert
marine-mammal biologist found
that she was deaf.
Without her hearing, she
won't be able to echolocate,
which dolphins use to find food,
communicate with her pod, find
her way or avoid predatory dan-
gers, the group says.
The calf is being transported to
a National Marine Fisheries labo-
ratory in Miami for a necropsy.

County putting out RFP for hotel/EOC


Joint-use facility
would be built at
Marathon airport.
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

They could call it the
Hurricane Hotel or Emergency
Operation Suites.
Whatever the name, Monroe
County officials are looking for
proposals that would create a
combination hotel and emer-
gency operations center at
Florida Keys Marathon Airport.
When the commission con-
venes Wednesday, it will be
asked to approve two requests
for proposals, one to design a
hotel at the airport, another
seeking a design for an EOC
connected to the hotel. The
meeting begins at 9 a.m. at the
Marathon Government Center.


"Conceptually, I think the
idea is attractive,"
Commissioner George Neugent
said when the idea was floated
during a June 6 budget work-
shop. "But the devil's in the
details."
The current EOC is commis-
sion chambers at the Marathon
Government Center. The room
is transformed into a communi-
cations hub for numerous agen-
cies when a hurricane approach-
es.
County Administrator Tom
Willi told the commission dur-
ing the workshop that combin-
ing an EOC with a commercial
.hotel would allow the county to
build a substantially smaller
facility than if it were a stand-
alone.
Instead of building space for
emergency responders to sleep,
eat and shower, the hotel rooms


could serve that purpose when
the county is under an evacua-
tion order, he said.
"If we build a new hotel, we
could build a joint use facility so
that in the EOC we don't need
the bunk rooms, kitchen," he
said. "We could take what might
be a 10,000-square-foot foot-
print and drop it to between
7,500 and .9,000 square feet,
which would save construction
costs."
Even though the county
would own the hotel and EOC,
Willi said rent would have to be
paid to the airport, and it likely
would be market rate.
"A joint use would reduce
those fees," he said. "There's a
lot of positives here. This could
be an opportunity to attract a
flag hotel to Marathon."
He said the county could


eventually look at doing the
same thing in Key West.
The state Department of
Community Affairs has awarded
Monroe County $1 million for
an emergency center. During the
June workshop, however, Willi
told the commission the param-
eters of the grant are too restric-
tive for the county's needs.
But approval to accept the
grant is on Wednesday's agenda
anyway.
"It's true that, as it stands
right now, it may not work for
us," County Engineer David
Koppel said. "What we're trying
to do, rather than just say thanks
but no thanks, is see if we can
get the conditions changed in a
way that will really benefit us."
Koppel says another $1 mil-
lion or more might be available
to the county in state hazard mit-


igation funds.
"We could get even more if
we retrofit existing buildings,"
he said, "which isn't really what
we want to do."
During the workshop, com-
missioners asked about the fea-
sibility of partnering with other
structures at the airport, includ-
ing the Mosquito Control
Building under construction and
the Sheriff's Office hangar.
Koppel said he wasn't sure
about the Mosquito Control
building, but that the hangar is
metal that would not fit the
requirements of an emergency
structure.
In the meantime, Koppel said
the current EOC is woefully
inadequate.
"If we had a really bad event,
that would be painfully evi-
dent," he said.

Salute lease
could be nixed
for back rent
"By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Com-
mission on Wednesday will deal
with one of the down sides of
being in the restaurant business.
On the agenda: approval to can-
cel a lease with the operator of
Salute restaurant on Higgs Beach
in Key West for nonpayment of
rent.
The meeting begins at 9 a.m.
Wednesday at the Marathon
Government Center. It will be
broadcast on Monroe County
Channel 76 on Comcast Cable
and on the county's Web site.
Restaurant operator Francis
Gonzon owes the county $34,500
back rent since January as
well as June's rent. He is charged
$6,900 a month for the beachside
space.
If all had gone as planned, the
county could have been landlord
for another restaurant operator
after buying the Hickory House
on Stock Island.
Despite plans to lease that
property back to the seller, coun-
ty officials closed its doors in
November after the controversial
move of purchasing the property
for $3.12 million. The commis-


sion has since decided to sell it.
One bid for $3.1 million has
come in.
The county is also seeking
back rent from Tropical
Watersports for some $3,000.

boats at Higgs Beach, has not

paid rent since January, according
to a letter sent by Public Works
Director Dent Pierce.
Also on Wednesday's agenda:
An ordinance to extend for
one year a moratorium on the
redevelopment of waterfront
facilities. The freeze, aimed at
slowing the loss of working
waterfront to high-end housing,
is set to expire in July. .


+ A discussion of the county's
capital budget for the coming
year. During a June 6 workshop,
budget staffers warned the county
could face a $20 million shortfall
in 2008 if some projects under-
way are not delayed.
+ A discussion to explore
whether the county should sell a
waterfront lot on Ramrod Key.
Commissioner George Neugent
says it would be a good way to
recoup money the county spent to
demolish a half-finished house on
the parcel that had come to be
called "the stairway to heaven."
Approval for Delta Airlines
to reduce the number of flights at
Florida Keys Marathon Airport
during the summer. The move,
'spurred by a seasonal slowdown,
would eliminate Tuesday and
Wednesday flights during July,
August and September.
Approval of an agreement
between the School Board and
county to support Just4Kids, a
nonprofit that provides school
and hygiene supplies to needy
kids. The county is committing to
$65,000 to fund the program.

Mayor Mario Di Gennaro sup-

Resort's auctioned

for $3.3 million


By PAMELA J. SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor


Bidders came from as far as
Massachusetts for the chance to
buy Marathon's Seascape Resort
at auction. But it was a Florida
man who came out the winner.
Del Tiegs, a real estate broker
and associate from Stuart, and
his investment partners won the
property over 17 other bidders
Thursday with an offer of $3.3
million. Tiegs said he is quite
happy with his purchase.
-"I feel good," Tiegs said. "It's
a nice property, a very nice prop-
erty."
Tiegs said he has no immedi-
ate plans to either develop or sell
Seascape, a 4.75-acre resort at
the end of 75th and 76th streets
oceanside in Marathon. He said
he and his partners are reviewing
their options before deciding
their next step, but he also said
potential buyers have already
contacted him.
"I have some people talking
to me about wanting" the prop-
erty, Tiegs said.


"But right now is probably
not the time."
The sellers, Robbie
Browning and his partners,
bought Seascape two years ago
for $4.45 million. They had
planned to develop the property
but changed their minds and put
it back on the market for $7.6
million earlier this year.
They then hired the National
Auction Group of Gadsden,
Ala., to sell the property at
absolute auction, meaning there
was.no set reserve and no mini-
mum bid requirement.
Seascape features more than
500 feet of Atlantic shoreline
and includes a boat basin, 11
resort units and a swimming
pool. The auction listing stated
the property is approved for one
single-family home and 10
condo/hotel units.
Bidders were required to
have $100,000 in certified funds
to participate in the auction.
Closing is slated to take place
within 30 days of the sale.


City moves on 2 sewer areas


But the council
is split 3-2
on the issue
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com "

Amid heated discussion, the
Marathon City Council on
Tuesday approved a resolution to
move forward constructing two
of the city's seven sewer service
areas.
The resolution; which passed
by a 3-2 vote, directs city staff to
proceed with awarding construc-
tion contracts for areas four
(Sombrero Beach Road/U.S. 1
corridor) and six (Coco Plum
Drive/U.S. 1 corridor) while
strongly emphasizing the city's
unhappiness with a lack of both
state and federal funding.
Consultant Weiler Engineer-
ing designed the system into
seven separate service areas with
pipes, vacuum pumps and
sewage treatment plants that
operate independently of other
areas.
Marathon's comprehensive


plan calls for the state to con-
tribute 40 percent of the system's
estimated $82 million cost and
the state has yet to deliver.
"This sends a message to the
state that we will start but they
must participate," Vice Mayor
Marilyn Tempest said at
Tuesday's City Council meeting.
Councilman Don Vasil spoke
out strongly against the resolu-
tion and moved to postpone
hearing it for 120 days. The
motion failed.
"It is the council's duty to be
better informed before we move
forward," Vasil said. "There is
much more data to be analyzed
before we can make this com-
mitment."
Current city staff figures esti-
mate that with the current $8
million in promised state fund-
ing not yet received, the cost for
a single-family home to connect
in areas four and six could be as
high as $12,800.
That figure is based on cur-
rent assessment estimates, for
which a residential user would
be charged $4,499 per equivalent


dwelling unit (EDU) as well as
an $8,304 connection fee. An
EDU is equivalent to the use of
167 gallons of water per day and
correlates to one single-family
home.
Connection fees would be
split among condominium or
mobile-home owners in a single
building or park, which have one
point of connection to the system.
Council had planned to set an
assessment for next year's tax
roll on July 9, but will instead
use that date to further tweak
hookup costs for various users.
The resolution also estab-
lished a 180-day window, fol-
lowing the award of a contract,
that allows the city to back out of
area six construction if more
state funding is not in place.
Councilman Mike Cinque
said he did not.feel comfortable
moving forward without a com-
mitment from "a state that has
lied and told stories to the citi-
zens of Monroe County for
years."
But Mayor Chris Bull assured
the audience that "in the coming
months, you will see we are
making the proper decisions."


Rat project heads into survey


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The first phase of a state and
federal program to eradicate
Gambian giant pouch rats from
Grassy Key concluded Friday as
U.S. Department of Agriculture
workers began removing their
second set of PVC-tube bait sta-
tions.
Scott Hardin, exotic-species
coordinator with the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, said workers had
deployed some 400 traps nears
homes and yards in the core area
the rats were believed to be bur-
rowing as part of the second
week of the project.
Traps were pre-baited for
three days with peanut butter
before workers added a zinc-
phosphide toxicant and left them
out another week.
One rat was reported dead
during the first week of the proj-
ect, but no more have been spot-
ted since.
"We expected they would
take the bait to their burrows and
die," Hardin said. "If it's like it


was in preliminary studies,
they'll die in an hour or two.
"It's going exactly like we
would have hoped," Hardin said
of the program. "We won't know
for sure until next month when
we survey to see if there were
any live ones we missed."
Hardin said the surveys will
begin sometime in July and that
if any rats are spotted, "we'll go
into a limited area and redeploy
some of the bait stations."
Gambian rats are an African
species that can grow up to nine
pounds and reportedly appeared
on Grassy Key sometime
between 1999 and 2001, when
they were released by a resident
who had been breeding them to
sell to pet stores.
The Gambian population,
which Hardin estimates to be in
the hundreds, has been on the
rebound since Hurricane Wilma,
when their food supply was low.
Hardin said he encourages
anyone who spots a Gambian rat
to call (866) 484-7586.

Radio stations change tunes


Clear Channel
now simulcasts
Upper, Lower Keys
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Avid listeners of deejay Bill
Hoebee have been hearing him
recite an unfamiliar station name
lately.
Instead of the usual WAIL
99.5-FM, it's now called Sun
99.5-FM.
And the names aren't all
that's changed.
As of midnight June 9, listen-
ers haven't been hearing as much
of the harder music playing on
the station. Instead, it plays
simulcast tunes from its sister
station in the Upper Keys,
WFKZ 103.1 FM (Sun 103.1).
According to Clear Channel
Radio Florida Keys Marketing
Manager Greg Capogna, listen-
ers will hear more songs from
artists like Dave Matthews, Rush
and John Cougar Mellencamp
though the call letters for the sta-
tions will stay the same, he
explained.


"The music will stay basical-
ly the same," he said. "We have
a lot duplication between the sta-
tions. For the most part it will be
adult contemporary."
Capogna said the track lists
between stations were very simi-
lar, making the mesh of music a
sensible move.
WAIL 99.5 isn't the only sta-
tion making changes.
As WAIL 99.5-FM is now
called Sun in the Lower Keys, as
WFKZ 103.1-FM already is in
Tavemier, WKEY 93.5-FM in
the Lower Keys and WKEZ
96.9-FM (Easy 96.9) in the
Upper Keys combine to form the
name Keyez, Capogna said.
The shows will split at 6 p.m.
to give their local fishing, traffic
and weather reports. He also said
that advertisements for the con-
joining stations will separate to
fit Lower Keys businesses for
the their fitting station, and the
same for Upper Keys ad clients.
Clear Channel, which owns
the stations, declared 450 of its
1,200 stations across the country
up for sale last December, said
Capogna, who runs stations that


air from Homestead to Key West.
Those 450 stations air in about
87 different markets, he said.
The Keys market was one of
them, with six FM stations -
WAIL, WKEY,'WFKZ, WKEZ,
WCTH (Thunder Country
100.3) and WEOW (Wow 92.7),
Clear Channel, based in San
Antonio, Texas, also has a local
marketing agreement with
WKWF1600-AM, a sports-talk
station.
Why almost seven months
with no acquisitions?
"It just takes time," Capogna
explained. "They're a lot of issues
to consider when buying radio
stations. They're like houses."
Capogna said research was
conducted to deduce what Keys
kind of tunes residents want to
hear.
"We thought the music need-
ed to get away from the heavier
rap," Capogna said. "You still
hear some of the rap tunes that
play on WEOW 92.7-FM." Rude
Girl will stay on that WEOW
spot, he added.
"Radio has to evolve and con-
tinue to be better," Capogna said.
"And so far, it's worked out pret-
ty good."


Sigsbee gets a reprieve

eehrlich@keysreporter.com


Sigsbee Elementary School in
Key West will remain open next
school year, but a final decision
regarding the 2008-09 school
year will not be made until later
this year, according to Randy
Acevedo, the Monroe County
School District superintendent.
Concerned parents of Sigsbee
students filled the room at the
Monroe County School Board
workshop Tuesday in Key West.
Capt. J.R. Brown, command-
ing officer of Naval Air Station
Key West, spoke in support of
keeping the school open. The
school is the closest elementary
school for base families to send
their children.
"I remind everyone here today
that I will continue to support all
elementary operations at
Sigsbee," Brown said. "The fam-
ilies may not wear uniforms but
'they are my heroes."
He said he understands the
hassle of having to move every
few years because of military
duties, but feels Sigsbee still
gives off a sense of community.
Brown also said that up to 300
families would be moving to the
base in the next few years, which
he said would increase Sigsbee
enrollment. Many of these fami-
lies would be coming from pri-
vate rental housing in Key West
and moving to new housing
being built on the base.
Base spokesman James
Brooks said it was unclear how
this might affect enrollment at the
other two elementary schools in

Wildfire group
meets on Tuesday

The next meeting for organ-
izers of the Community Wildlife
Protection Plan, a federally rec-
ognized document that helps
prioritize local needs and
actions for wildfire readiness, is
set for 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Big
Pine United Methodist Church
on Key Deer Boulevard, across
from the Winn-Dixie plaza.
The group will review the
most recent draft of the objec-
tives, comments received and
formulating priorities to combat
Keys wildfires.


Key West.
Although Sigsbee will be
without a permanent principal
because Marian Smith is moving
to Horace O'Bryant Middle
School, Acevedo recommended
utilizing an assistant principal
and said he would represent the
school at board meetings.
One major concern of the
School Board was funding for the
school and whether it was worth
it to keep Sigsbee open despite
low enrollment.
Board member John Dick said
although the board would save
about $860,000 every year,-
"there are loads of other places
we should be shopping" before
Sigsbee is closed.
He said after he divided the
number of elementary schools in
Key West by the number of
pupils in each school, his results
showed Sigsbee had the third-
highest cost per student.
Board member Debra Walker
countered that since there is such
limited enrollment at Sigsbee, the
board can't afford to keep the
school. Because Sigsbee was
built in 1960, she said, the older
style of the building has chal-
lenges that cost too much to
maintain.
Board member Steven
Pribramsky agreed and said there
would be significant repair and
maintenance issues should
Sigsbee remain open.
Acevedo said he hopes to
have a final decision before
December.

School officers
District Safe Schools coordi-
nator Sunny Booker said she is in
the process of trying to rectify the
cutting of school resource offi-
cers from Monroe County
schools.
There is a resource officer at
Sugarloaf Elementary School,
which Booker said is a priority
because of its rural location, and
is the school requiring the longest
response time if an incident were
to occur.
She also said the resource offi-
cer from Marathon High School
has been moved to Key Largo
School because it is such a large
middle school. Booker said KLS
has the highest number of inci-
dences of any school because of
the challenging age group it
encompasses and because of
"Miami influences."

Housing group hosts consultant


Sharkey to assess
city's problem
and find money
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Cheap housing for Key
Westers?
Not without spending some
money first, city officials and
activists agree.
The Alliance of Community
Housing meets Monday from 2 to
4 p.m. at the Gato Building at
1100 Simonton St. to discuss
finances, available land and
strategies to avoid NIMBYism
among residents concerned with
possible drops in property values.
Housing consultant Jeffrey
Sharkey of Capitol Alliance
Group Inc. will be at the meeting
to offer his expertise.
The City Commission voted
in favor of a contract to hire
Sharkey at its June 5 meeting.


Sharkey's contract is active from
this past Tuesday until June 11,
2008.
He. will assess Key West's
housing situation while attempt-
ing to draw more public support
for possible and inform the city of
available federal and state work-
force housing programs and
funding opportunities, according
to the contract.
In the end, the city should
have an official affordable-work-
force housing plan.
There is no flat amount for
what Sharkey will receive for his
work, though he will be paid
$175 hourly, while other Capitol
Alliance staff will receive $100
an hour.
The minimum estimated cost
for the project is $47,250 with-the
maximum at $88,250, according
to the contract.
"You have to spend money to
make money," attorney Jerry
Coleman told the commission


June 5. Coleman is the county's
paid housing consultant.
Commissioner Jose Menendez
objected to the resolution, first
stating that he could not justify
the expenditure but ultimately
voting yes to the contract.
Commissioner Clayton Lopez
.shared Menendez's initial skepti-
cism but also decided to approve
the contract. It passed 4-1 with
Commissioner Dan Kolhage dis-
senting. Commissioners Harry
Bethel and Bill Verge were out of
town.
Mayor Morgan McPherson
told the commission it takes pro-
fessional services Sharkey -
to learn what is most financially
prudent for the city to tackle its
most talked-about problem.
"It definitely was a good
move," city affordable housing
coordinator Paul Clayton said.
"[Sharkey] has a really good
track record on finding money."
Lisa Tennyson, county coordi-
nator for affordable housing, will
facilitate the meeting.

By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

District 5 Key West City
Commissioner Jose Menendez
filed paperwork Wednesday
adding his name to the list of
candidates vying for his seat.
Two other prominent com-
munity members are consid-
ered most likely running
against Menendez, including
Vincent Mancini, vice chair-
man of the Historic Architec-.
ture Review Committee, who
has officially filed.
Also, Teri Johnston, presi-
dent of Fair Insurance Rates
for Monroe, said she is "lean-
ing" toward running and will
decide next week.
Menendez moved from
Havana, Cuba, when he was
13.
What does he love most


about Key West, a city he's
lived in for more than 60
years?
"The whole city," he
answered quickly.
Menendez has held various
jobs on the island a Thom
McAn shoe store employee, a
courthouse interpreter at the
Monroe County courthouse and
a window technician at the Key
West post office for 24 years.
He now tutors students at
Key West High School, has
been president of numerous
parent-teacher associations,
was involved with union
groups in the 1970s, and was a
national postal president for 14
years.
He'd like to see Key West
"as prosperous as it is now."
"I would like to see the
Truman waterfront property be
developed into a beautiful park
and assisted living facility," he
said, adding that if re-elected,
he would work toward beautifi-
cation of Bayview Park.

Taste of Greece also offers
pita sandwiches, wraps, pastas,
strombolis, calzones, home-
made soups, salads, and pizzas,
which you can order whole or by
the slice.
For heartier appetites, the
extensive menu includes tradi-
tional Greek dishes such as
mousaka (eggplant, potato, and
ground beef topped With
bEchamel sauce), souvlaki
(skewered, char-broiled mari-
nated chicken, pork, or lamb
cubes), pastitsio (pasta and sea-
soned ground beef topped with
bEchamel sauce), chicken and
veal dishes, and gyros (lamb and
beef strips served with sliced

Mediterranean products I carry,"


he said, noting the absence of
such items in local markets.
"Greek cuisine is good for
your health," Kalatzis points
out. "No butter, no cream. It is
based on good quality olive oil
and fresh herbs such as mint,
dill, oregano, and some parsley."
In addition to the meatless
dishes currently on the menu, he
plans to offer daily vegetarian
specials, with such ingredients
as eggplant, zucchini and leeks.

new adventure
By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com

Yes, being a dive instructor is
probably one of the best jobs on
the planet and no, we cannot
believe that we actually get paid
for.it.
But believe it or not, even we
need a vacation sometimes.
So where do Keys scuba
instructors go on vacation?
Somewhere we can dive, of
course.
When my boyfriend and I
were planning a trip, we chose
the Bahamas for several reasons.
The trip over is relatively quick
and inexpensive, but more
importantly, the islands offer an
array of different dive sites
including reefs, sunken ships
and my personal favorite, cav-
erns and caves, which we don't
have in the Keys.
Since we wanted to do a lot of
diving in our three-day trip, we
decided to travel by boat rather
than airplane. It's not safe to fly
12 hours after diving, and nei-
ther one of us wanted to waste
any of our dive time on land.
We met the ship in Fort
Lauderdale and five hours later
we arrived in Freeport on Grand
Bahama, antsy to get in the
.water.
We dove with Sunn Odyssey
Divers, one of three major div-
ing outfits in Freeport, including
Xanadu Undersea Adventures
and Unexso.
It was a strange feeling to put
my feet up and relax on the dive
boat. I am used to working on
-the boats helping the cus-
tomers, adjusting gear, tying up
at the mooring site and I had
to keep reminding myself to let
someone else do all the work.
The site we dove was a mid-
dle-depth reef, between 45 and
60 feet deep, and was composed
of a series of ledges running per-
pendicular to shore as far as I
could see.
Each ledge rose 15 to 20 feet
above the sand, allowing divers
to explore tiny crevices in the
walls, looking for Christmas tree
worms, feather dusters and small


cavern giving is me one ming not availaile TO Keys scuoa waivers.


fish.
Larger animals lurked under
the ledges. Crabs nearly a footin
diameter huddled in dark spaces
and lobsters probed the water
with their long antennae from
beneath the coral.
But one of the best aspects of
the dive was the incredible visi-
bility. I could see the boat clear-
ly during the entire dive, even as
far as 100 feet away.
During my safety stop at 15
feet on the boat's down line, I
was able to watch the other
divers 45 feet below me as they
swam ledge to ledge, back
toward the boat, occasionally
tapping one another excitedly
and pointing but a fish, anemone
or sponge.
I was a little disappointed that
my dive was over, but still had a
cavern dive to look forward to.
The next morning we loaded
our gear into a van with several
other divers and drove to Ben's
Cavern, a caver that formed
centuries ago and was named for

Cavernous adventures abound


DIVE / From 19

the Bahamian local that first
explored its waters.
Our guide, Nick Rolle, one of
the owners of Sunn Odyssey,
explained that a cavern differs
from a cave in that it allows
divers constant access to their
entry point and always has some
natural light.
As we put on our gear and
stepped into the water, Rolle
pointed out mangrove snappers,
which he said had adapted to be
able to survive the freshwater in
the upper layer of the cavern and
the saltwater in the lower layer.
The fish swam freely between
the halocline, the area where the
freshwater and heavier saltwater
meet, creating a blurry haze at
about 35 feet.
Our group descended into the
water, which was dimly lit with
green light from above. We fol-
lowed Rolle, who lead us away
from the light and into the dark-


er area of the cavern, where 15-
foot stalactites and stalagmites
appeared orange and brown
under our flashlights.

A cavern

Differs from

a cave in
that it allows

point.

As I swam deeper, I saw the
halocline, which blurred my
view of the rocky bottom. I sank
into it, and felt the water warm


from a chilly 74 degrees to a
comfortable 78. The visibility in
the saltwater wasn't great, but I
was appreciative of the warmth.
As my light passed over the
calcite crystals that formed on
the pockmarked walls, I kept
thinking about the history of the
cavern, which has existed for
hundreds of years and has only
been explored in its recent past.
As we boarded the ship back
to Fort Lauderdale only two
days after we'd arrived, we men-
tally prepared ourselves for
going back to work the next day.
Even though we could have
used a few extra days in the
Bahamas, we were relaxed and
content as we watched from the
deck as the islands faded off in
the distance.
After all, we do have the best
jobs'on the planet.

Tonight marks


Juneteenth


Key West event
to celebrate
end of slavery
The annual Juneteenth
Freedom Celebration Day will
be observed at Nelson English
Park, corer of Catherine and
Thomas streets in Key West,
from 6 to 9 p.m. tonight.
Juneteenth is the oldest
known celebration of the end
of slavery, an international cel-
ebration for many African
Americans, a reminder of the
triumph'of the human spirit
over the cruelty of slavery.
While President Lincoln
signed the Emancipation
Proclamation Jan. 1, 1863,
word did not reach parts of
Texas and other southern states
until June 19, 1865. Hence


Juneteenth is celebrated inter-
nationally as an important date
in African American history.
Tonight will feature music
by local DJs and rappers,
gospel music, food and soft
drinks, games and prizes, and
education, counseling and free
HIV testing.
"This is an opportunity for
the African American commu-
nity 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, an AIDS Help health
educator and an organizer of
the event.
Various community groups
and agencies are sponsoring
the free event.

State on the lookout for pesty mite


It's not here yet,
but it might
show up soon
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services is closely monitoring the
migration of the red palm mite
(Raoiella indica Hirst), which
island-hops the Caribbean and
could be heading for Florida.
"Arrival of the red palm mite
in Florida could threaten Florida's
vibrant ornamental palm indus-
try," Agriculture Commissioner
Charles Bronson said.
The red palm mite quickly


spread ever closer to the U.S.
mainland after it was identified in
the Western Hemisphere three
years ago on the Caribbean island
of Martinique. The mite is now in
St. Lucia, Dominica, Grenada,
Guadeloupe, Martinique, St.
Martin, the Dominican Republic,
Trinidad,'Puerto Rico and the U.S.
Virgin Islands.
According to the U.S.
Department of Agriculture, the
invasion represents the biggest
mite explosion ever observed in
the Americas.
The red palm mite causes seri-
ous leaf damage, which ruins the
ornamental value of palms, and
some growers anticipate as much


.4


as a 50 percent loss in coconut
production.
Scientists observed that the
mite has spread in the Caribbean
to infest other exotic and orna-
mental plants, including banana
and heliconia species. Equally
worrisome is the mite's ability to
disperse with the wind, which in
Florida means that hurricane sea-
son may bring with it more than
devastating weather.
Surveys for potential palm
infestations have been conducted
in coastal areas including the
Keys and Miami-Dade, Broward,
Hillsborough, Sarasota, Manatee,
Pinellas and Lee counties. In May,
another survey of coastal areas
near ports, as well as nursery envi-
rons, was completed. No evidence
of red palm mite infestations was

This is the red palm mite. The Keys are among coastal
counties where the state has performed monitoring for the
invasive pest.

While the Keys are still under
drought conditions, recent rains
can contribute to mold growth. A
water leak, roof leak or just mois-
ture from the air can develop mold
in and around your home.
Scientific evidence has linked
mold to asthma symptoms in
chronic sufferers, as well as to
coughing and upper respiratory
tract symptoms in otherwise
healthy people, says a report from
the Institute of Medicine of the
National Academies in 2004.
Damp conditions have also been
associated with the onset of asth-
ma and lower respiratory illness in
healthy children.
Most symptoms ofmold expo-
sure are due to an allergic reac-
tion. Because only a percentage of
the population has an allergic
reaction to any single allergen,
only a percentage of the popula-
tion will be allergic to mold. There
may be four people in a home and
only one person will experience


symptoms due to the exposure.
A study sponsored by the
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention examined whether
mold and indoor dampness are
linked to fatigue, neurological dis-
orders or other microbial infec-
tions.
The results show that infec-
tions from molds that grow in
indoor environments are not a
common occurrence except in cer-
tain susceptible populations such
as those with immune compro-
mise.
Infection from toxic mold is
rare. Toxic molds vary depending
on where they grow and growing
conditions. Stachybotrys, or black
mold, is generally known as toxic
but current information does not
indicate it is more or less of a
health concern than other types.
There appears to be a cumula-
tive effect to mold exposure. A
person who has no symptoms
today may become sensitized and
have health symptoms later if they


are exposed to a moldy environ-
ment for an extended period of
time.
Some people react to mold
whether it is living or dead. The
mold should be removed either
way.
But you should know it is
impossible to completely remove
mold from porous surfaces such
as paper, drywall and carpet
padding, so these materials should
be removed and discarded.
To remove mold from the sur-
face of non-porous materials, first
scrub with a brush and detergent
solution. Ventilate the work area
well. Then disinfect with a chlo-
rine bleach solution.
Leave the bleach solution on
the surface for 15 minutes, then
rinse with water and dry quickly.
Just splashing full-strength bleach
on mold is not effective. It must be
cleaned.

community development agent for
the Monroe County Cooperative
Extension.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission on
Thursday approved changes to
snook bag and size limits and
harvest seasons during its meet-

New rules reduce the snook
daily recreational bag limit from
two fish per person to one on
Florida's Atlantic Coast, which
means a one-fish daily limit on
snook will apply statewide.
Rules also change the 27 to
34 inches total length snook slot
limit to 28 to 32 inches in
Atlantic waters and 28 to 33
inches in Florida's Gulf,
Everglades National Park and
Monroe County waters.

Brossard's star keeps rising


Tennis ace
wins Super Series
in St. Augustine
Marisa Brossard is beginning
her summer tennis schedule as
she finished her spring hot.
On June 3, the 14-year-old
entered the Old City Super Series
in St. Augustine as the No. 1 seed,
receiving a first-round bye. She
then swept through four victories
without dropping a set (losing
only eight games) including wins
over the No. 3 and 4 seeds, claim-
ing the Championship trophy.
It's the second consecutive
Super Series Championship for
Brossard and her third finals in a
row.
Shortly after her final victory


in St. Augustine, Brossard learned
she was selected to participate in
the State Closed Sectional
Tournament (the state champi-
onship) in Daytona the following
week.
Under coach Martin Sykut -
father of Florida State standout
Magic Sykut of Marathon -
Brossard met Kali Donner of
Weston in the first round and won
a three-set match (6-1, 1-6, 6-3).
In the second round she met
No. 15 seed (and state ranked no.
33) Christy Kung of Southwest
Ranches.
Brossard lost a tie-breaker in
the first set (2-7) and fell 4-6 in
the second with the deciding
game being a Brossard drop of
serve at 4-5.


"Marisa had the tools and abil-
ity to win but lacked the confi-
dence and experience. I hope
she'll get a chance to play her
again in the future," her father
Tom said.
In the first round of the bck
draw Brossard won another three
setter (6-1, 3-6, 6-2) over Agathy
Ambrozy of South Pasadena
using a variety of passing shots,
drop shots and lobs.
In the next round Brossard fell
to Natalie Navarro of Miami in a
tiebreaker (5-7).
Next up is her attempted
defense of her title at the
Aubumdale Super Series on June
23 and awaiting news of accept-
ance to the Florida Team' Zonals
in Naples and the USTA Clay
Court National Championshipsgr-
Delray Beach in July.

LEONARD / From 25
(
from an accidental head butt.
The victory was especially
satisfying because it came
against a left-hander. It was
another left-hander, John
Mackey, who defeated Leonard
in January in Key West. "I got


rid of the southpaw curse," he
said.
Leonard improved his record
to 4-1-1 while Newbiggin
dropped to 3-11.
The Monroe County fire-
fighter said he expects to fight
next either in late July or early
August at the Seminole Hard
Rock Casino in Hollywood.


Marlin event
is celebrating
its 25th year
In 1982, some 400 anglers tar-
geted martin in the waters off
Key West, fighting the huge bill-
fish like Ernest Hemingway did
more than 40 years earlier, in the
inaugural Key West Marlin
Tournament.
The popular challenge cele-
brates its 25th year in 2007, with
participants vying for $250,000
in cash prizes July 18 to 21.
Now called the Drambuie Key
West Marlin Tournament, the
tourney takes place in conjunc-
tion with Key West's annual
Hemingway Days celebration.
Teams that accumulate the
most points for blue marlin,
white marlin and spearfish during
the tournament's three fishing
days are to split $40,000 in cash.
The first-place team earns
$25,000, while second- and third-
place prizes are $10,000 and
$5,000, respectively. Teams also
,can enter one fun fish (dolphin,
tuna, wahoo or released sailfish)
per boat per day to add to their
point total.
In addition to the cash prizes
for the top three boats in the mar-
lin division, anglers can compete.
'for a guaranteed $100,000 for the
heaviest marlin weighed in at
over 784 pounds.
All marlin and spearfish are to
be tagged and released unless
their weight exceeds 600 pounds.
Boats entered in the marlin
division can pay an additional fee
to compete for $10,000 cash to be
awarded in the fun-fish division.
Cash prizes are to be presented
for the six largest dolphin, three
largest tuna (yellowfin, blackfi


Keynoter


and skipjack) and three largest
wahoo.
Anglers entered in the fun fish
division also can compete for
$100,000 to be awarded for the
heaviest dolphin weighing more
than 64 pounds.
The Drambuie Key West
Marlin Tournament is to kick off
with a final registration at the
Conch Republic Seafood Co.,
631 Greene St., set for 4 to 6 p.m.
July 18. A captains' meeting is to
begin at 6 p.m. with a tournament
auction to follow.
Lines are to be in the water
from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 19
and 20, and from 8:30 a.m. to 3
p.m. July 21.
The tournament awards ban-
,quet is scheduled for July 21 at
the Westin Key West Resort &
Marina, 245 Front St. Cocktails
and a silent auction are to begin
at 6:30 p.m., with dinner and
awards presentations starting at
7:30 p.m.
Tournament entry fees are
$1,500 per boat before June 15
and $1,800 per boat after that
date for two anglers to compete
in the marlin division and attend
tournament social events. Marlin
division competitors can qualify
for cash prizes in the fun fish
division for an extra $300 entry
fee per boat.
There is no maximum number
of anglers per boat, and addition-
al anglers over two can register
for $200 apiece, which includes
social privileges. Additional
social tickets can be purchased
for $100 each.

o for Father's Day this
weekend, you've been the
giver or recipient of a bad
tie (in the Keys? Doubtful.), a
new grill, fishing tackle, a day
on the golf course 'or a home-
made... what the heck is that?
And yet what's most impor-
tant is still spending a little qual-
ity time with good ol' dad.
In Key West Sunday, the
Mallory Square Festival
Marketplace is offering lunch,
admission to museums, a ride on
the Conch Tour Train or Old
Town Trolley and more for $1.
Lucky me, I get double the
fun for Dad's day since my own
pop's going to be in town, and
this dollar deal means I can treat
my dad and my husband for
ultra cheap and then go splurge
on a few mojitos and good
cigars.

If you further search for
Key West on YouTube (which I
do frequently) you'll find lots
of really bad tourist videos and
cell phone cinemas that are


enough to make you lie about
your address.
Sometimes there's a good
one, too. There are several by a
guy who calls himself Charles
Trippy. Among a lot of
mediocre footage in "Key West

sequence about a chicken hunt;
There's an amusing shot of a
wet chicken family in a
Hurricane Rita vid too; along
with some spectacular waves at
the Southernmost Point.

without a ride back to his hotel.
.Pretty good motivation for a
song about warm climates (the
Keys, maybe?) and what Buffett
called the local antifreeze: rum
and tonic. The outcome was
"Boat Drinks."
We might consider "boat
drinks" a generic class of mixed
cocktail, popular in tropical
locales, that feature fruity, sug-
ary flavors mixed with high
alcohol-content rum. Bacardi
151 (75.5 percent alcohol by
volume) is a prime ingredient.
Some argue that tequila- and
vodka-based tropical drinks
count as "boat drinks" but
purists, especially Keys purists,
refuse to accept "yo ho ho and a
bottle of vodka" as worthy of
even the most yuppified pirate.
Like most cocktails, taste
drives the mixology. Like
bananas? There's the Carribean
Martini 2.5 ounces spiced
rum (Captain Morgan or
Bacardi) plus a half ounce of
Creme de Banana, shake over
ice and pour.
Or maybe you like pineapple
and coconut flavors. Try the
Goombay Smash:
Equal parts (2 ounces each
makes one tall drink) of light
rum, dark rum, coconut rum,
pineapple juice, dash of bitters.

IF IRST YOU DoN'T sUClCI E EL,


Blend with crushed ice, serve
over cubes in a sugar-rimmed
glass. Add a paper umbrella
(always a nice touch to a boat
drink).
Supposedly, boat drinks were
meant to be consumed aboard a
boat. This is fine if the boat is
tied to a dock or mooring and
either the sails are reefed or the
engine keys are hidden.
Boat drinks are sneaky. They
hide. their alcoholic punch
behind sweetness and color.
Note, too, that a paper umbrella
will not slow your decent if you
fall off a barstool.
The following are a few
recipes some famous, some
infamous for boat drinks.
Remember is that quantities and
ingredients (except rum) may be
substituted at will. It's your
headache after all.
Bahama Mama
There are about 50 recipes
floating around the Internet for
the Bahama Mama. This recipe
is one I was taught at a fine
eastern college:
1 1/2 ounces dark rum
1/2 ounce 151-proof rum
1/2 ounce coconut liqueur
1/2 ounce coffee liqueur
S4 ounce pineapple juice
1/4 ounce fresh lemon
juice
slice of fruit for garnish
Shake all ingredients with
ice. Strain into a highball glass
filled with ice.
Calypso Cooler
+ 2 ounces white (or light)
rum
3/4 ounce frozen concen-
trated pineapple juice, thawed
+ 1/2 ounce lime juice (Key
lime juice creates a more tart
flavor than Persian lime juice)
+ club soda
sugar to taste


+ pineapple slice
lime slice
Shake rum, pineapple juice,
lime juice and sugar well with
ice. Strain into tall highball
glass filled with ice. Top with
cold club soda. Garnish with
pineapple and lime slices.
Ernest Hemingway
S1 1/2 ounces white rum
1/4 ounce maraschino
cherry juice
juice of half a lime
1/4 ounce grapefruit juice
Shake all ingredients well
with a scoop of crushed ice.
Servein a highball glass.
Havana Sidecar
1/2 ounce gold rum
3/4 ounce triple sec
3/4 ounce lemon juice
Shake all ingredients well
over ice. Strain into chilled
cocktail glass.
Hurricane
The signature drink of
Bourbon Street in New Orleans;
popular after the six-pack of Jax
Beer is gone.
1 ounce dark rum
1 ounce light rum
1 tablespoon passion-fruit
syrup
1 tablespoon lime juice
lime wedge
1/2 ounce orange juice
(optional)
1/2 ounce pineapple juice
(optional)
Shale all ingredients with ice
and strain into a highball glas
over crushed ice. Garnish with
lime wedge. Add either or both
orange and pineapple juice for a
fruitier cocktail.
Mojito
Go to the outside bar at El
Maison de Pepe in Key West
and order one. No matter what
you do on your own, you can't
match a real mojito made by a
real Cuban bartender.
Banana Cow
They'd hang me at the Jack
Daniels factory if they knew,
but I really like this one.
1 to 2 ounces light rum
(though I use 2 ounces Mount
Gay dark or Matusalem)
1 ounce Creme de Banana
1 1/2 ounce cream (real
cream, cardiologists be damned)

Hayes' annual
bash at Holiday
Isle coming up
By CLAUDIA.MILLER
L'Attitudes contributor

hat happens to the guy
who gets voted "Class
Partier" in high
school? In the Keys, he grows
up to throw some of the most
well known parties in South
Florida.
Get your fishnets and fedoras
ready because T.J. Hayes' Pimp
& Ho' party is coming up on
June 23 at Holiday Isle in
Islamorada.
Raised here in the Keys,
Hayes started throwing parties
when he was at Coral Shores
High School. He left for college
and other work, returning in
1991 to start a sign company out
of his garage. Called
Eyecatchers Signs, he grew it
into a six-person team where
they create banners, boat letter-
ing, decals, vehicle wraps, elec-
trical signs and more.
After being back in the Keys,
Hayes realized that he missed a
favorite event he had attended
growing up the John Wayne
theme party which was no
longer taking place.
S"I loved those parties," he
said. "The whole community
would get together, and everyorie
would come by boat. It was a
great time, so I decided that
somebody had to carry on these
parties,"
He started off by throwing the
parties from his home in
Tavemier on two vacant lots
next to his house. After several
years those gatherings got too
big for the area, so Hayes decid-
ed to move them to Little
Jamaica, which used to be open
in Islamorada next to the Ocean
View Pub.
After that, the venues got pro-
gressively larger, moving from
Little Jamaica to Big Fish, Hog
Heaven and finally to Holiday
Isle in 2003. Hayes said Holiday
Isle is a better venue for his
events because it offers a large
stage, security, the capacityqt
hold a large number of people as
well as hotel accommodations
for people coming from out of
town.
And come from out of town
they do: his events draw revelers


from not only all over the state,
but from the rest of the U.S. as
well.
"This party is becoming sort
of like a Fantasy Fest," Hayes,
said. "People know about it now,
and they know that the weekend
before the Fourth of July is when
I throw this party every year.
I've had people come from as far
as California."
Raquel Crummitt of
Jacksonville has been attending
Hayes' events for more than four
years now; she took second
place one year in the costume
contest.
"Pimp & Ho'is my favorite,"
she said. "The people and the
costumes make it such a blast.
These parties are much better
than any parties in Jacksonville.
They're a lot larger, more fun
and more tropical. They're just
100 times better."
Some of his themes over the
years have included Pajama
Party, Mardi Gras, '80s, Ho
Down and his most popular -
Pimp & Ho'. This year's cos-
tume contest features a $1,000
cash prize.
"At Pimp & Ho', the girls get
dressed up real sexy, and the
guys are totally pimped out,"
Hayes said. "They really go all
out. If you come to this party
and you're not dressed, then you
feel uncomfortable."
At the party, there will be


In brief


Celebrate in
Bahama Village

Today, Juneteenth Freedom
Celebration Day is at Nelson
English Park at the comer 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 African Americans,
reminding all of us of the tri-
umph of the human spirit over
the cruelty of slavery.
An evening of music by local
DJs and rappers, gospel music,
food and soft drinks, games and
prizes, as well as education,
counseling and free HIV testing
are on tap for the event.
The public is invited.

Where: Holiday Isle,

three separate areas with three
different vibes.
A VIP room mainly for the
locals will be upstairs on the
quarter deck. DJ Will will be up
there spinning '70's disco
accompanied by a strobe light
and a smoke machine.
There will be a funk band,
White Tie Affair, in the tiki bar,
and a local band, The Regs, will
be rocking the main stage.
"It's neat to see it evolve,"
Hayes said. "You have a party in
the VIP room for the locals, and
I go up there and know every-
body. Then I go into the rest of


tiki bar, and I don't know any-
body. I think that's cool. It's kind
of diverse."
One of the challenges facing
Hayes this year is uncertain fate
of Holiday Isle after the much-
publicized plans for the Ocanos
project. Hayes has been spread-
ing the word that the venue is
still going strong and that they
have committed to events
through November. After Pimp
-& Ho', Hayes will be throwing
an 8O0s party on Aug. 4 and a
Ho' Dbw.n on Nov. 10.
"I thin ey're going to stay
open and that they're here to
stay," he said. "They're putting
money into the place- new


signs and maintenance on the
outside. They're promoting it,
and they've been working on
everything with me."
Hayes said he feels that his
events are important for the
Keys since the changing demo-
graphic has been having an
effect on the nightlife.
"The Upper Keys is slowly
evaporating of events like this,"
he said. "It's become more ster-
ile and doesn't have the Keys
funky feeling. It's not as much
hometown Keys as it used to be.
I keep throwing these parties
because they're fun, and they are
a great way to get everyone
together."

The former Indiana-based
artist is not a demanding in-
your-face kind of performer,
contrary to the demeanor his
husky redhead appearance
might suggest. Recently, he's
been performing solo with his
blue acoustic Takemine doing a
mixed setlist of country tunes,
well-crafted country-rock, and
feel-good, smile-invoking rock
covers like the 1965 McCoys
hit "Hang on Sloopy" and
Georgia Satellites' "Keep Your
Hands to Yourself."
He can be found weekly on

originals like "Out To The Sea"

Key West.
Roberts met the children at
the Custom House to tour the
Clyde Butcher exhibition of
nature photography and talk
about the challenges of photo-
graphing outdoor subjects.
Roberts, who has 15 years of
experience with pinhole camera
photography, said the style is
challenging to everyone, espe-
cially her students who have
learned to relate light to film to
capture images.
Students have to forget how
they photograph with today's
digital cameras with light
.meters and viewfinders, she
said.
"Students learn to see how
the camera sees and then they
hone their talents," Roberts
said.


Jodell Roberts tells her students the finer points of pinhole
cameras while surrounded by the nature photography of
Clyde Butcher at the Custom House in Key West.


Keeping with the idea of
Butcher's nature photography,
the class traveled to Bahia
Honda twice to put their skills
to work and then returned to the
society's Fort East Martello
Museum to develop their film,
said Suzanne Pereira, curator of
education for the Key West Art
& Historical Society.
Student photos will be dis-
played at the Custom House at
the end of the summer program.

It's 'Civil War'
at Fort Zach

Fort Zachary Taylor Historic
State Park in Key West is host-
ing a new Civil War event,
beginning today, called "Third
Saturday."
Visitors to historic fort, at

through Truman Annex, will
have a chance to experience
living history on the third
Saturday of each month.
The park's Civil War re-
enactment unit, Battery B, 1st
U.S. Artillery, will demonstrate
the artillery drill on the sea-
coast cannon as well as field
artillery pieces. The group will
also show park visitors every-
day life at a fortress in the
1860s. The group is also

prospective new members a
chance to learn more about the
group.

In brief


Three receive
McKee grants

In 1992, keenly aware of
the financial struggle of many
local artists, Key West philan-
thropist Ann McKee produced
her first fundraising auction
for their benefit. Since then,
scores of artists have been
rewarded annually for their
dedication and work.
This year, three such prom-
ising young artists received
awards.
Maia Harrison, 18, has been
writing since elementary
school. A recent graduate of
Key West High School, she
writes "everything from poems
to short stories," and hopes to
begin a novel soon. Her dream
is to have one of her stories
published in the New Yorker.
Harrison begins college at
Stetson University this fall.
Erick Lowe, 14, is,a musi-
cian and honor student at
Sugarloaf Middle School. He's
been studying piano for seven
years and oboe for four: He's a
member of the jazz and the
concert bands at Sugarloaf and
hopes to learn to play guitar.
The McKee grant will pay for
professional lessons.
Ashley Yaccarino, 18, has
been a visual artist since
kindergarten, when she won
the art contest for the local
phone book cover. The follow-
ing year she won the Jergens
Soap National Art Contest.
When she was in third grade,
she won the City Electric Art
Contest. In 2006, she took first
place in the Artists in Paradise


show on Big Pine.
For information on apply-
ing for a grant, donating art or
volunteering at the fundraising
auction or more, e-mail Al
Sachs at alsachs@bell

Night on White is Thursday


Monthly art
walk features
new creations
T his month's Night on
White Art Walk is on
Thursday, when galleries,
shops and other businesses stay
open late from 6 to 9 to
celebrate the opening receptions
of new artists' work in Key
West's White Street district.
The Wave Gallery at 1100
White St. will feature new work
by three ladies representing dif-
ferent mediums.
Orlando-based artist Karen
M. van Beest is showing her
Mirrorscapes. She combines a
mirror and glass to create 3-D
images of nature's wonders.
She uses hand-cut, painted and
layered mirrors.
"I wanted to give the illusion
that this rigid and inflexible
substance bends and flows as in
the curves of nature," van Beest
said. "Mirror also has light

At the deli
Author
Orvelo Wood
.--- will be at the
White Street
Deli Caf6,
1019 White
St., for the
Night on
White. He'll
be signing
WOOD copies of his
book, "The -
Rivertown Boys and Other
Stories," from 6 to 9 p.m.
Wood is a storyteller in the
tradition of yam-spinners on
porches or around campfires. In
90 years of living, his curious
and inventive mind has amassed
a treasure-trove of story materi-
al. Although not autobiographi-
cal, Wood drew from his own
experiences growing up in the
Depression era for his book.
He was a creative boy -
always inventing and building
things from stuff he scrounged
from barns and trash heaps. He
has written more than 100 short
stories, many of which are also
based upon at least a germ of
truth, and a few of them are
included in the book.
"The Rivertown Boys" is the
tale of the adventures of Floyd
and Hollis, two imaginative
boys who in the pre-TV and
video game days create their
own amusement. They grow up

in the fictional Rivertown,
which closely resembles
Wichita, Kan., where Wood
himself grew up.
The creative boys, like the
author, scrounge back alleys
and dumps for raw materials
with which to build all sorts of
projects. They build a push-
mobile, a rowboat, and a hot air
balloon. They dig for treasure
and artifacts along the river-
bank. They help to capture
criminals, solve a long-ago
murder, round up stray hogs,
and rid Rivertown of thieving
gypsies.
The story continues through
their growing-up years when
they begin to think about girls,
and into the army during World

Techniques That Work


War II. One chapter, "The
Shannon County Hog War,"
was adapted from his prize-win-
ning story that was published in
the Key West Writers Guild's
anthology "Key West and
Beyond." Most chapters in the
book can stand alone as short
stories.
In addition to the novella, he
has included a collection of
entertaining tales and reminis-
cences.
Wood is also a sculptor; his
work is being shown at the Key
West Art Center on Front Street.
