Even Hollywood heavy-
weights like Sean Connery
need advice when it comes to
bringing a director's vision to
the big screen.
Fortunately for Connery
and many other actors, produc-
ers, and directors, Naval Air
Station Key West spokesman
Jim Brooks was available to
play that role.
Brooks was in New York


City recently interviewing with
host Steve Gitland from the
History Channel for the televi-

The subject of discussion:
His tasks helping on the pro-
duction of the hit 1990 film-
"The Hunt for Red October,"
about U.S. and Russian sub-
marine commanders playing

Brooks was working in the
Navy Office of Information-
West at the time (from 1988 to
1992) and was tapped as a con-

The Islamorada Village
Council voted unanimously
Thursday to support a proposal
crafted by local fishing guides
and conservationists wary of
forthcoming Everglades National
Park rules that could limit fishing
and boating there.
Some of the proposed rules
could cost the Upper Keys econ-
omy, which is heavily dependent
on recreational fishing, millions
of dollars annually, backers of the
latest proposal say.
"Some of the plans on the
table by the National Park
Service would be disastrous to
our economy," said David Purdo,
a long-time Islamorada charter
boat captain.
The council voted 4-0 -
Councilman Chris Sante was
absent to back the plan its
authors call Alternative E. About
30 people, a high turnout for
council meetings, came in sup-
port of the plan.
Whatever rules are approved
by the National Park Service will
be incorporated into a re-write of


the Everglades National Park
General Management Plan in
2009.
The proposal backed by the
Village Council would require
programs like mandatory boat-
use permits for Florida Bay
obtained by proving competence
in bay navigation. Less-experi-
enced boaters could qualify
through workshops or an online
program. It would also create idle
zones within 100 yards of some
shorelines.
The proposal is counter to
ones being considered by the
park that could ban powerboats
from some areas popular with
backcountry fishermen, and limit
the size of boats that could opelr-
ate there.
Alternative E has the backing
of local groups like the Don
Hawley Foundation, the Florida
Keys Fishing Guides Association
and the Islamorada Fishing Club.
Park officials have been work-
ing on several alternatives with
fishermen, conservationists and
other interested parties the past
several years on new rules intend-


ed to improve water quality in the
Everglades and Florida Bay.
The proposals have been nar-
rowed down to Alternative A
through D. A would not change
any rules, while B through D go
too far, said Jim Trice, an
Islamorada fisherman and one of
the authors of Alternative E.
"There's. $60 million at risk"
to the economy of the Upper
Keys if Alternatives B, C or D are
chosen, Trice told the council.
Everglades National Park
Superintendent Dan Kimball,
who Alternative E's backers have
praised for being open-minded,
signaled at the meeting that sig-
nificant portions of the plan could
be in the final version of the man-
agement plan.
"This Alternative E has
changed our thinking," he told
the council. "What we really
want is a healthy Florida Bay, but
the biggest challenge is a healthy
ecosystem."
The comment period for
changes to the, Everglades
National Park General Manage-
ment Plan ends July 31. More
information on Alternative E is at
www.alternativee.com.


-Tough financial year ahead


VILLAGE / From 1

from impact fees and a half-cent
sales tax, but the village has been
using money from the general
fund, which pays for fixed
expenses like telephones and
other utilities, as well as taking
out loans to pay for capital proj-
ects.
"That's not budget cutting,
that's very poor planning as far as
I'm concerned," said Filinovich,
who was hired in May.
Filinovich estimates the vil-
lage is in debt for about $11 mil-
lion, she said in a phone inter-
view.
"You're going to see, you're
not going to have the funds to pay
for these projects," Filinovich
said.
This year's village tax rate,
$1.95 per $1,000 of assessed
property value, is 9 percent less
than the 2005-06 rate. That drop
caused a significant dip in rev-
enue, Filinovich said.
Property taxes make up
around $7 million of the village's
operating budget of more than


$10 million. With the drop in tax
rates ordered by the Legislature,
Filinovich said she's not sure the
general fund will be as high for
the 2007-08 fiscal year.
"I'll see what I can pull out of
my hat," she said in the interview.
When Filinovich discussed
services Islamorada provides, she
did so in terms of "widgets," the
fictional any-product used in eco-
nomics classes. She said this
year, the village would have to
figure out a way to provide the
same level of service on a signif-
icantly tighter budget.
"Last year, we had a huge
decrease in millage and it kind of
backfired on us," she said.
The analogy worked for
Mayor Dave Boerer, who stated
after Filinovich's presentation,
"Do [the citizens] want smaller
widgets or do they want to pay
more for the widgets?"
The anxiety over budget cut-
backs was palpable at the meet-
ing as a cavalcade of department
heads justified their expenses to
the council.
With expenses approaching
$2 million a year, the Parks and


Recreation Department is the
third-most-expensive department
in Islamorada, Boemer said.
He wanted department head
John Sutter to break down specif-
ically what services he is provid-
ing, how much the village is pay-
ing to provide these services and
how much it is getting in return.
"How much does a unit of
government cost?" he asked
Sutter. "You've got a lot of
units."
Sutter said this would be diffi-
cult, because his 14 full-time
employees "wear five different
hats.... When people are cross-
training as a lifeguard one day
and a park attendant the.next day,
it's difficult to get exact num-
bers."
The issue of cross-training
was brought up again by Boerner,
who asked Building Services
Director Gerry Albertson if there
would be any cost benefit to
training his building inspectors to
expand their scope to areas like
plumbing.
Albertson responded, "There's
always a cost benefit when you
get more work out of less people."

Two men who pleaded guilty
to felony alligator poaching are
set for sentencing at 10 a.m.
Tuesday before Monroe County
Circuit Court Judge Wayne
Miller in Key West.
Timothy Goll, 19, of
Marathon and Jordan Milo, 20,
of Big Pine Key pleaded guilty
June 5 after rejecting a plea that
would have given them a year in
the county jail.
Instead, they left sentencing
up to the judge, who canimpose
a penalty of up to five years in
prison and fines up to $1,000.
On March 24, 2006, they
were accused, along with two
others, of luring a protected
American alligator from the
Blue Hole on Big Pine with dead
birds, shooting its eyes out with
a pellet gun, then bludgeoning it
to death with a baseball bat.


They later reportedly barbe-
cued it.
The case also involved Theo
Derleth, 19, of Marathon, as
well one teen whose ID is not
disclosed because he was a juve-
nile at the time.
The juvenile and Derleth, one
being the driver and the other
lookout man, were found to be
less culpable and were giving
pretrial intervention, a compli-
ance program ordered by the
court that usually involves pro-
bation and community service.
Authorities were alerted to
the killing when a Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission officer found two
photos of the dead gator posted
on www.myspace.com.
A large number of animal-
rights activists are expected to
attend the sentencing.

would have revived Gulf of
Mexico drilling plans.
One would have completely
killed the moratorium in place for
20 years; another would have
allowed drilling within 25 miles
of Florida's gulf coast.
U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen, who represents the
Florida Keys and much of
Miami-Dade County, voted
against the amendments that
were defeated, 217-203.
"Protecting our natural
resources, while at the same time
searching for alternative fuel
sources, should be one of our top
priorities," Ros-Lehtinen said in
a prepared statement.
"Opening up Florida's coast-
lines to oil and gas exploration
would be a travesty with far-
reaching negative effects," she
said. "This'is not the legacy that I
wish to leave to my children and
grandchildren."
Although the proposed
drilling-lease sale would take
place hundreds of miles from the
Keys, local waters and coral
could still suffer, Quirolo said.
"The gulf's Loop Current
would bring drilling muds, which


are loaded with toxins and heavy
metals, downstream to the Keys,
where they would degrade water
quality and harm the coral reef,"
Quirolo said.
"We really appreciate
Congresswoman Ros-Lehtinen's
leadership on this issue, along
with hQr efforts to identify
sources of wastewater funding
for the Keys. Providing adequate
wastewater treatment in the Keys
is equally important."
Ros-Lehtinen pointed out that
seven other Florida congression-
al representatives, Republicans
and Democrats, spoke out against
the amendments in the House.
"We do so out of principle and
because we all know what this
would mean to our state's coast-
line and beaches," Ros-Lehtinen
said.
The Interior appropriations
bill now moves to the U.S.
Senate. If the Senate version is
passed with language that would
change the drilling moratorium
in the eastern Gulf of Mexico, the
issue would have to be negotiat-
ed between the two chambers.
"We have to stay on watch
throughout the summer to make
sure there are no further efforts to
dilute the restrictions in the lan-
guage," Quirolo said.

BROOKS / From I

Games" and "Flight of the
Intruder."
The directors needed his Navy
knowledge to recreate accurate
scenes for the movies, and
Brooks said he was happy to be
the liaison between the authentic
military and those who make the
films so many Americans turn to
for entertainment.
The History Channel show
will reveal the inner workings of
"The Hunt for the Red October"
and is set to air Sunday from
10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. It will
include a viewing of the movie,
along with clips of the interview
with Brooks.
"He was fantastic," producer
Kevin Koltz said of Brooks. "It
was good to have someone with a
direct connection to the film on
the show. He was one of the few
consultants on it."
Koltz has been in the business
for 21 years and worked with
A&E, which owns the History
Channel, since 1994. He's
worked on projects such as
"Breakfast with the Arts."
Brooks fondly looks back on
his old job at the Navy
Information Office in Los
Angeles, citing memories of
checking Tom Cruise' s uniform
to determine if his ribbons were
what a true JAG officer would
wear.
According to Brooks, the level
of accuracy Hollywood aims for
is astronomical.
"They want to get it right," he


said. "Nobody is out there trying
to make the military look bad."
As far as meeting Connery,
Brooks describes him as a "per-
fectionist" and a "professional"
who "doesn't like wasting his
time."
He also worked with "A Few
Good Men" director Rob Reiner.
They were able to relax enough
to grab a bite to eat and Reiner
introduced Brooks to sushi just
before he moved to Japan for two
years on assignment.
Besides the major motion
films he's helped create, he also
worked with Danny Baldwin in
the television movie "Heroes of
Desert Storm," and even helped
out Cher in the production of her
famous music video "If I Could
Turn Back Time," filmed in 1989
aboard USS Missouri.
But the director or writer's
visions aren't always harmonious
with what is accurate military-
wise. This keeps the Pentagon
from approving some films like
"Under Siege" starring Steven
Seagal and "The Pacifier" with
Vin Diesel part of which was
filmed in Key West because
certain scenarios would never
happen in a military setting.
Ultimately, the Pentagon
would not approve "A Few Good
Men," Brooks said.
Retired Navy Lt. Bob
Anderson is now the director of
the Information Office. Projects
the crew has worked on recently
include "Deja Vu" starring
Denzel Washington and "Faith of
my Fathers" a 2005 TV movie
telling the story of John McCain.

Don't let fireworks
start Keys wildfires

Those celebrating July 4
Wednesday should be careful if
they're using fireworks, especial-
ly if they live on Big Pine, Upper
Sugarloaf or Upper Cudjoe keys
due to the threat of wildfires.
Houses in these areas are in
the most flammable areas in the
Keys, as noted by the Lower
Keys Wildland Fire Hazard
Reduction Group.
Capt. Steven Zavalney,
Monroe County assistant fire
marshal and a member of the
group, stresses the distinction
between July 4 novelties that are
legal to possess or display and


those that are not.
S"According to state law, fire-
works that explode or leave the
ground are illegal to possess
without a state pyrotechnics
license and a permit to display
them. Such items are illegal for
the average homeowner to set
off.
"Novelty items, however,
such as smoke devices, party
poppers, snappers and snakes
may be legally purchased
through retail stores such as you
local grocery store and used for
entertainment purposes.
However, these should be used
with great caution."

at the State Fire Marshal's Web
site at www.fldfs.com

Village budget woes

bode poorly for others

The Islamorada City Council got a cold dash of reality at its
budget workshop this week from newly hired Finance Director
Alice Filinovich.
Not to put too fine a point on things, but basically the village
was spending more money than it has or can reasonably
expect in upcoming budget cycles.
And the state's insistence that local government go on diets
from the hog-trough era of double-digit tax-roll increases
makes it even tougher.
In today's Keynoter, you can read more details from David
Goodhue's report. And you may be shocked to realize the
council has been paying for ambitious capital projects by dip-
ping into everyday operating funds.
"That's not budget cutting," the new finance director said.
And it's hard to escape the conclusion that water and hard tack
may be prescribed for a while until the village's civic waistline
can shrink a few notches.
This exercise is important and not just in the village. All the
municipalities and the county need to pay heed as they work
through the preliminary rounds of budgets. The work done now
is absolutely essential before public hearings begin in
September.
Anyone who pays property taxes in Monroe should keep a
watchful eye on local government for the next two months as
workshops and preliminary budgets are being prepared.
There can be much mischief still afoot if the public doesn't
show up at these meetings and demand a clear accounting of
how their money is being spent.

For whom the bell tolls, the cats?
Every so often you read about government regulators run
amok.
We think that Code Red applies to the ongoing efforts by the
U.S. Department of Agriculture to confine the six-toed cats at
the Hemingway House.
Key West reporter Kyle Teal finely explains details about the
convoluted case in today's paper.
. Suffice it to say, when federal agents sneak around posing as
tourists to catch a cat wandering outside the Hemingway House
and Museum grounds, you know the government is sticking its
nose where it don't belong.
Even the idea of corralling cats to fit some bureaucrat's defi-
nition of the rules is an exercise in futility. Cats are cats because
they don't follow directions from anyone and that includes
their owners.

Routes of Lower Keys shuttle need improvement


EDITOR:
As a prospective rider of the Keys shuttle
transit system operated by the city of Key
West, I wanted to relay my recent experience.
I am assuming that Key West tax dollars are
paying for this service, as the county says it
has nothing to do with it.
Why would they have different stop-off
points going north and south to Marathon? As
an example living on Sugarloaf, I can catch
the bus across from Mangrove Momma's
going north, but on the return could get off at
the Sugarloaf Lodge but not catch the bus
going north from the lodge. At least this is
what I was told over the phone.
This in itself was another ordeal. I went to
the Web site for the phone number and infor-
mation for the bus and got the phone number,
only to find out it had been changed already.
Then after several tries at the new number, I
finally got someone on the line that gave me
the info above.

Insurance story was uncle,
EDITOR:
Just-so I don't receive more phone calls than
I have because of the Wednesday Keynoter
article on insurance, according to the 2007
regular legislative session, the new legislation
extends the eligibility for wind coverage for
$1 million homes through December 2008.
Having spent a considerable amount of time

in Tallahassee and on these issues, Fair
Insurance Rates for Monroe continues to push
for fair and equitable legislation, but it all
could not be done in one session. We made a

Rental help is life saver
EDITOR:
I have lived in Marathon since 1992. Since
that time, I have been working full-time and
raising a family.
Recently, I became separated from my hus-
band and was no longer able to pay my rent
and utilities. I received financial help from
Keys Area Interdenominational Resources
(KAIR), the Salvation Army and the First
Baptist Church. I also applied for help
through the Coldwell Banker Schmitt
Charitable Foundation.
Everyone has been wonderful to me and
Coldwell Banker is helping me with my rent
for the next three months. This will help me
until I can find a second job and a more
affordable place to live.
I can't thank all these people enough. I was
so worried about how I was going to live and
now I have hope that it will all work out.
Thank you again.

One other thing: If this is to promote
tourism in Key West, why on Earth would you
not have. the bus go to the Marathon airport?
The farthest stop-off point in Marathon is the
Kmart we already have one of these in Key
West.
Commercial air service now exists at the
Marathon airport. Would it not make sense to
at least try a pick-up there around the time the
one flight a day comes in? Who knows, if
there were some service to Key West by bus,
maybe other airlines as well as the passengers
might even look at Marathon, since so many
times the Key West flights are fully booked.

Editor's note: Key West, Marathon and
Monroe County split 25 percent of the cost to
run the shuttle between Marathon and Key
West. The remaining costs come from state
and federal grants.

ar
strong stance for Tallahassee to freeze the
rates we fought for through December 2008
to give us at least one more legislative session
with which to work, and we got it.
It is my opinion that the negative tone of the
Keynoter article is sending the wrong. mes-
sage to the community. FIRM has worked
diligently to bring about an acknowledgement
of unfair and discriminatory insurance rates in
our own county and has awakened the whole
state to this issue.
Again, in my opinion, it would be a great
service to your readers and to the cause if we
joined together to find a way to increase the
pressure on Tallahassee to fix the remaining
issues.

Commissioners listen
EDITOR:
I would express my thanks to those who have put the
Key West City Commission's attention toward our
community's concerns over the annexation and devel-
opment of Wisteria Island. This is very encouraging
and inspiring to me and I look forward to future con-
versations on what is truly the best thing for our island,
the community and the environment.

Castaway, Wilson deserved
better than what they got
EDITOR:
I live just outside of Orlando and am just learning of
the fafe of the dolphins Castaway and her calf Wilson.
I am appalled that so-called professionals would
even attempt to keep an otherwise healthy wild preg-
nant dolphin isolated. Are they not aware of the social
structure of the birthing process? Did they not think
about the importance of sound in the dolphin world? I
am no expert but have researched enough to know how
much they assist each other.
They condemned this calf even before it was born. In
the past several years, there seems to have been some
very poor decisions made regarding the stewardship of
this very complicated species.

Mayor's not up front about
costs of city sewer system
EDITOR:
Our mayor, Chris Bull, read the same city hand-
out that I read regarding sewer cost. Yes, it is esti-
mated to cost $12,806 to run the pipe in front of
your house. This is not the total cost.
You then have to contract to have a sewer line
run from you home to that pipe in the street. What
does that entail? Digging up your yard and shrub-
bery to the extent necessary to place a gravity-fed
pipe to the street (price to be determined by terrain
dug.through, marl or cap rock), pumping out your
current tank, sanitation of your current tank, filling
of the tank or removal and disposal of the tank,
replanting sod or new pea rock, replanting shrub-
bery, and repairing your driveway if the main line
happens to go through it.
Yes, you can finance the pipe in front of your
house. Unless you have set money aside, you will
also have to finance the line from you house to the
street and all the repairs caused by that line and
tank disposal. Oh, by the way, your water bill will
not only be higher because of the cost of sewage
treatment, it will also include a maintenance fee
for future maintenance of the system.
I don't know why our mayor chooses to leave out
these expenses and blindside his constituency. If
you want to be a leader, tell the whole story, tell
the truth.

Let us never forget

the roots of our nation


Editor's Note: Portions of this reprise last
year's column after hearing from readers who
appreciated a recap on the history of this spe-
cial holiday observance.

The Fourth of July celebrates America's free-
dom and our own battle for independence. Some
of us, unfortunately, forget that the holiday is
really about celebrating the Declaration of
Independence, which was signed July 4, 1776.
Many of us may have forgotten the American
history lessons we had in school, but I hope that
1776 and this birthday of the nation's founding
still has resonance.
Flying the flag, noisemakers and fireworks
displays are traditionsbound tightly to our cele-
brations of the Fourth of July.
We come by the bombast honestly
and can trace back the tradition to
John Adams, one of the authors of
the Declaration of Independence, and
later to become our nation's second
president.
In a letter he sent to his wife,
Abigail, on July 3, 1776, Adams
reported on the drafting of the
Declaration, completed July 2 and
wrote:
"The Second Day of July 1776 will
be the most memorable Epocha, in
the History of America ... It ought to
be solemnized with Pomp and Wayne I
Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Keynote
Guns, Bells, Bonfires, and
Illuminations from one End of this
Continent to the other from this Time forward
forever more..."
Lost in the subsequent accounting of this
period and its designation as America's birthday
is the fact that not all the colonies signed the
Declaration on July 4, 1776.
And the famous document with signatures
affixed, the famous John Hancock being pri-
mary, was not actually signed on July 4 by the
56 signers who represented the 13 colonies.
There were two signatures on the original
broadside distributed to members of Congress
on July 5, Hancock's as president of the
Continental Congress and Charles Thomson, as
secretary of Congress.
The copy of the Declaration delivered to King
George III later that same year was this version,
with only the two signatures, not the later and
more famous version with all 56 names
embossed for history's sake.
So the next time someone asks you to sign
your John Hancock, you'll know what that
means. And you'll know that we have John and
Abigail Adams to thank for the history of
"Pomp and Parade ... and Illuminations" that
make the Fourth of July truly feel like a birth-
day bash.


Speaking of bashes, the biggest July Fourth


parade in the Keys kicks off at 10 a.m.
Wednesday in Key Largo. Our sister publica-
tion, The Reporter, has been hosting this annual
hometown extravaganza for 32 years.

Child rescued from pool


Quick action
saves boy from
possible drowning
Keynoter Staff

A Big Pine Key toddler
remains alive after a near-
drowning Thursday because of
quick action by family mem-
bers, neighbors and a rescue
crew, a Monroe County Fire
Rescue officer said.
The boy, approximately 1
year old, was found in a swim-
ming pool off Tulip Lane on
Big Pine around 5 p.m.
Family members and neigh-
bors administered cardiopul-
monary resuscitation while
Monroe County rescue units
from Station 13 on Big Pine


reached the scene, said Cab
Bentley, Monroe County Fire
Rescue battalion chief.
"Everybody did an excellent
job, from the people on scene to
our crew on Rescue 13 to the
Trauma Star [helicopter ambu-
lance] crew," Bentley said.
"They got him to where he
needs to be."
The name of the young child
was not released by county staff
because of privacy laws.
The child was carried by
ambulance to Fishermen's
Hospital in Marathon. After ini-
tial treatment, he was trans-
ferred by TraumaStar to Miami
Children's Hospital around 8
p.m. He was admitted into the
pediatric intensive-care unit.
The child reportedly was


breathing on his own.
A current condition report
from Miami Children's Hospital
was not available at press time.

Bomb scare
Also Thursday on Big Pine,
around 6 p.m., scores of
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
deputies cordoned off an area at
the Winn-Dixie shopping center
due to a bomb scare, but noth-
ing was found.
Spokesman Greg Artman
said someone reported seeing
something suspicious through
the window of the National Key
Deer Refuge office.
But when deputies showed
up and checked it out, it turned
out to be a child's toy, he said.
He said the show of force is
necessary in these times of
heightened security.

with no one aboard Tuesday
morning near the Long Key
Bridge.
Smith's family found the
body near Channel Key Banks,
near Duck Key, within several
miles of the adrift boat was
originally located.
The Coast Guard, along with
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office and Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission, searched for more than
48 hours and covered more than
1,590 square miles near Long
Key and throughout Florida
Bay. Smith's family also hired a
private investigator to search
but soon dismissed him,
according to the Aspen Times.
The body was turned over to
Monroe County Medical
Examiner Michael Hunter for
an autopsy.
+ Also Thursday afternoon,
Coast Guard Sector Key West
received a report of two over-
due and missing divers who
were diving the Spiegel Grove
off Key Largo. Coast Guard
Station Islamorada and Coast
Guard Air Station Miami
launched search-and-rescue
units immediately, as did the
Sheriff's Office and FWC.
The pair were diving from
the Republic 7 out of Conch


Republic Divers in Tavernier.
Coast Guard spokesman
Michael Bell said the dive crew
responded to the emergency
exactly as it was supposed to -
"a textbook response" and
that the divers followed the
safety protocal they were given
before leaving the dock.
"This was the biggest reason
we had such a successful rescue
in this case," Bell said.
Crew aboard a Coast Guard
HH-65 helicopter from Miami
found the divers on the surface
in apparent good health about
80 minutes after the Coast
Guard received the initial
report.
The helicopter crew directed
an FWC boat to the pair, and
they were plucked from the
water.
+ Also Thursday, a Coast
Guard Air Station Clearwater
crew evacuated a 16-year-old
male from the Carnival cruise
ship Fascination 120 miles
southwest of Key West.
Patrick Galloway was in the
ship's elevator and attempted to
stop the door from closing with
his right hand. But the door did
close and when Galloway
pulled his hand from it, his
pinky finger was severed
The Coast Guard received a
call from the ship's doctor seek-
ing help, and the teen was
flown to Tampa General
Hospital.

Marathon, KCB


reach fire accord


3-year deal
is going to
city councils
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com.


The Marathon and Key
Colony Beach city councils
apparently have doused their
dispute over fire protection.
The two met jointly
Wednesday at the Marathon
Garden Club and seem to have
come to terms for a fire con-
tract between the two cities.
Key Colony Beach, which
gets protection from
Marathon, had been seeking to
pay a percentage of Marathon
Fire Rescue's operating costs
based on building values only,
while Marathon officials pre-
ferred the contract remain
based on taxable land value.
In the end, the two sides
agreed the percentage would
be based on "just value" of the
property, which means the
taxable value of the land
minus homestead or any other
exemptions. Key Colony
Mayor Clyde Burnett called it
"a middle-of-the-road" agree-
ment.
Under the current one-year
contract ending Sept. 30, Key
Colony Beach pays paying
roughly 25 percent of the
operating costs. Burnett said
he feels the rate is excessive,
as the city only constitutes 8
percent of the population of
the fire-service area and 5 per-
cent of the total service calls


for either fire or rescue.
Key Colony was seeking
between 15 and 18 percent,
but "just value" equates to 18
to 21 percent of the bill.
In addition to the "just

Colony will make an annual
$20,000 contribution toward
equipment for Fire Rescue.
"The [councils] put every-
thing on the table and Ithink
we've come up with an agree-
ment we think is fair for both
communities," Marathon
Mayor Chris Bull said of the
arrangement. "Over time, this
actually, decreases what their
percentage will be. As we
redevelop, we're going to
have a major increase in prop-
erty value, whereas Key
Colony Beach is relatively
stable."
Bull also noted "at the end
of the fiscal year there will be
a truing of the accounts,"
meaning Key Colony will
receive a rebate if operating
costs are lower than expected,
or will pay its percentage of
any overage. He anticipated a
significant rebate this year.
Marathon City Attorney
Jimmy Morales is drafting a
three-year contract to be
approved by Key Colony's
attorney. Bull is hopeful the
agreement would be on the
agenda for each of the coun-
cils' next meetings.
Marathon next meets July

Postal Service firm


Layton losing
one clerk slot
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen
on Thursday met with U.S. Postal
Service officials to discuss a
Planned reassignment of one of
the two Long Key Post Office
clerks, and didn't get the result
she wanted.
Both Harolyn Keeney and
Diane Saunders have worked in
the Long Key office more than 10
years, but it appears a change
scheduled to take place as early
as July may come to fruition. It is
unclear at this time which of the
two clerks would be asked to
relocate..
According to a prepared state-
ment, Ros-Lehtinen and the
postal officials discussed "the
many letters that her office has
received from concerned citizens
and local elected officials" about
cutting one of the two clerks.
Ros-Lehtinen reportedly
shared with the postal officials
locals' concerns that with only
one clerk on duty, service at the


Long Key Post Office would suf-
fer.
"We made sure that the voices
of the citizens of Long Key and
Layton were heard by the postal
officials in Washington," Ros-
Lehtinen said in the statement.
"While I am not hopeful that the
repositioned employee will be
allowed to stay at Long Key, I
believe we have made headway
to assure that there will be no
mail disruptions for the residents
of Layton and Long Key."
According to the release,
"postal officials assured the con-
gresswoman that no one was
being let go or fired, but rather
repositioned as were 200 other
mail clerks in South Florida with-
out any adverse affect on mail
delivery."
Layton Mayor Norman
Anderson praised Ros-Lehtinen
for "going to bat again and stick-
ing up for the small town," but is


apprehensive about the level of
service the city might now
receive.
"We're just going to have to
wait and see, but our service is
going to be cut in half," Anderson
said.
However, local American Postal
Workers Union President Jack
Baldwin remains optimistic the
two clerks will stay in Long Key.
"It's a good first step in the
process that Ileana has gotten
involved," Baldwin said. "If the
community can keep the pressure
up, then they'll be successful."
The proposed change came
about following the results of a
U.S. Postal Service review of the
office. Baldwin said the reviews
are based solely on computer data
measuring the amount of incom-
ing and outgoing mail, as well as
revenue brought in and operating
costs.
To contact Ros-Lehtinen, call
(305) 220-3281, or visit www

grade high


State releases
latest results
from FCAT tests
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

Keys. elementary schools
maintained or improved their
overall ratings under a recently
implemented, tougher state grad-
ing formula.
Florida rates schools using let-
ter grades based on how well stu-
dents perform on the Florida
Comprehensive Achievement
Test, or FCAT.
Four of five Monroe County
elementary schools maintained
their "B" ratings under the new
formula and one, Glynn Archer,
moved up to an "A" for the first
time in three years, results
released Friday show.
The district far outshone
neighboring Miami-Dade and
Broward county schools, which
saw a dramatic increase in the
number of schools rated "F"
under the new formula.
"We're really pleased with the
gains. Congratulations go out to


our staff and faculty, but really to
the students. It was their perform-
ance that made this happen," said
Randy Acevedo, superintendent
of the Monroe County School
District.
The district's standout disap-
pointment this year was Coral
Shores High School, which went
from a "B" the past two years to
a "C" this year. Acevedo said this
was because the grading formula
required reading scores to
improve by 50 percent and Coral
Shores' scores improved 45 per-
cent.
"For this, we were penalized
an entire letter grade," he said.
Marathon High also went
down a grade from last year, to
"B" from "A." Key West High
improved to "B" from "C."
The district's one middle
school, Horace O'Bryant,
dropped from "A" to "B." All
three K-8 schools maintained
their "A" standings. Montessori
Island Charter School dropped
from an "A" to "B."

Park adds 7th input meeting


It's July 11 at
Edison College
in Collier County
Everglades National Park
Superintendent Dan Kimball
announced Tuesday that park
staff has scheduled a seventh
meeting for the public to com-
ment on the proposed options in
rewriting the park's general man-
agement plan.
It's July 11 in Naples at
Edison College, Collier County
campus, Building J, Rooms
103/104.
Two Keys meetings the past
month drew more than 200 peo-
ple combined, mostly Upper
Keys flats guides worried about
more regulation such as the addi-
tion of no-motoring zones.
The July 11 meeting is from
5:30 to 8 p.m. There will be
overview presentations at 6 p.m.
presented by Kimball, with dis-
cussion sessions before and after.
There will be a question-and-
answer portion.
To get to Edison College, take
Tamiami Trail (U.S. 41) to
Collier Boulevard/State Road
951. Go north on 951 about 3
miles to-Lely Cultural Parkway
(tuin left at the light) and go
about a mile to the entrance to
Edison College, which will be on
your right.
Follow signs to Building J.
There is a parking lot in front of
the building. Rooms 103/104 are
at the main entrance to
Building J.
The planning process under
way will guide park management
for the next 20 years; Everglades
National Park has not had a com-
prehensive plan since its 1979
master plan.
The public comment period
closes July 31. If you were not
able to attend one of the work-


shops, there are other ways to
participate:
Visit http://parkplan
ning.nps.gov to view or down-
load newsletters and comment
forms, and submit comments via
the Internet. Select "Everglades
National Park" from the drop-
down box and then follow the
link for the general management
plan/East Everglades wilderness
study.
To receive a copy of the
newsletter and supplement by
mail, call the park at (305) 242-
7700.
Following the public com-
ment period, the park's planning
team will analyze the input and
begin the process of selecting a
preferred management alterna-
tive. A draft plan should be
released in mid-2008.

'Danger' tag removed
The World Heritage
Committee, meeting Monday in
Christchurch, New Zealand,
voted to remove Everglades
National Park from the World


Heritage in Danger List in recog-
nition of the progress the United
States has made in addressing
key issues that led to the listing of
the park in 1993.
Everglades National Park was
placed on the in-danger list with
the support of the U.S. govern-
ment in response to several
threats to the ecologic health of
the park, including changes to the
natural water flow, an increase in
invasive species and significant
damage to park resources caused
by Hurricane Andrew in 1992.
To date, the United States has
authorized $8 billion to imple-
ment the Comprehensive
Everglades Restoration Plan,
known as CERP.
The World Heritage
Committee is the governing body
of the 183-nation World Heritage
Convention, which seeks to iden-
tify, recognize and protect the
world's most significant natural
and cultural heritage, such as the
Everglades.
Everglades National Park is
one of only 20 properties listed as
World Heritage sites in the
United States.

Zoning change stirs controversy


Lots go from
maritime use
to residential
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


An ordinance amending
Marathon's zoning maps ended
up requiring much more discus-
sion than anticipated Tuesday at
the Marathon City Council
meeting.
Issues centered around two
lots adjacent to the Mariner's
Place apartment building on
Coco Plum Drive.
Planning Director Fred
S Gross said lots owner D & G
Waterfront Properties Inc. orig-
inally intended to change the
lots' designation from mixed-
use maritime to residential high,
which would have required a


future land-use map change.
But Gross said D & G repre-
sentative Donald Craig decided
"they could do what they
intended to by changing it to
mixed-use instead of residential
high," which required only a
zoning map change,
Councilman Pete
Worthington said it was "totally
inappropriate" that a zoning
change for the two lots appeared
on the maps they were voting to
approve.
"Here we are adopting maps
that I was told by [City
Manager] Mike Puto, [City
Attorney Jimmy Morales] and
Fred Gross that there was not
going to be any changes to the
zoning other than what [the
state Department of Community
Affairs] DCA had requested,"
Worthington said. "This proper-


ty was not a request of DCA."
Worthington said the zoning
change was being presented as a
mistake on the maps, when in
fact Craig had been informed at
previous council meetings it
was not and that he was able to
pursue a zoning change through
the proper channels:
Mixed-use maritime lots are
typically used for commercial
fishing-related activities, but
Gross said the property owner's
argument "was that it hasn't
been used for commercial fish-
ing for many years.... They
wanted to remodel and spread
out the 12 units over the three
parcels."
"By taking two working
waterfront vacant lots and
switching them over where they
can do commercial develop-
ment, they're going to knock
down 16 units of affordable
housing," Worthington said of


the planned redevelopment. "I
can assure you the new build-
ings aren't going to be for
workers in the community."
Worthington said he was also
concerned with protecting what
remained of the city's working
waterfront. He estimated fewer
than 50 properties remain des-
ignated as such, adding "once
it's gone, it's gone."
Mayor Chris Bull at
Tuesday's meeting said he was
"fundamentally opposed" to
eliminating working waterfront
property.
Council passed the ordi-
nance by a 4-1 vote, with
Worthington the only dissenter.
Both he and Bull indicated
they intended to address the
issue before the July 10 meet-
ing, when the ordinance
will appear for a second public
hearing.

Council hears


housing proposal


$5,000 subsidy
would be set
as incentive
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon City Council,
meeting in regular session
Tuesday, took the following
actions:
+ Heard a presentation from
Affordable Housing Task,Force
representative Josh Mothner.
The proposal called for a $5,000
annual subsidy to landlords who
would voluntarily meet to-be-
established health and safety
standards and deed restrict their
property for 10 years.
Mother told the council the
program would be intended for
landlords of "residential rental
property" struggling to keep
rents manageable due to
"increasing property tax and
insurance."
The program would require
participating landlords to main-
tain rents at or below the level
they now charge, with the
exception of a 3 percent annual
cost-of-living adjustment.
Mothner pointed out to the
council that the cost of building
a new affordable unit in the city
would be between $130,000 and
$300,000. For only $5,000 per
unit, the city could utilize
already existing dwellings.
A workshop was scheduled
for July 6 so the council and
task force can discuss the pro-
posal further.
Approved an ordinance
amending several chapters of
the city's land development reg-
ulations as requested by the
state Department of Community
Affairs.
City Planning Director Fred
Gross said before Tuesday's
meeting the DCA was mainly
concerned with several minor
Typing errors in the LDRs.
Approved a major condi-
tional use for the construction of
a 3,915-square-foot dock at the
Island Tiki Bar near mile mark-
er 54. The dock will contain 25
boat slips and no overnight
mooring will be allowed.
+ Approved a resolution cre-
ating a development agreement


for Keys RV Park near mile
marker 50.5. The agreement
will establish redevelopment
rights for all of the park's 210
units.
Twenty-three mobile homes
will be given market-rate resi-
dential rights, while 124 perma-
nent RVs will be given afford-
able housing residential rights
and 63 transient RVs given tran-
sient rights.
The agreement will essential-
ly forgive all present code viola-
tions, which had prevented
many residents from redevelop-
ing in the past. Residents also
have the option to purchase the
lot next to them, sell one of the
transferable building rights,
combine the two lots and put up
a new house.
Gross said he believes the
new development agreement
will decrease density in the park
over time.
Set a July 6 date for a
workshop to discuss future
options for the Boot Key
Bridge. The island's three parcel
owners have been invited to
attend.
Approved an ordinance
establishing a restoration fund,
as required by the city's com-
prehensive plan. The fund will
be used to restore city-owned
environmentally sensitive lands,
wetlands, beaches and other
areas.
Approved a resolution for
the purchase of a new city
pump-out boat and refurbish-
ment of a current pump-out boat
for use by the City of Marathon
Marina.

DOT cracks down on trucks


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


State enforcement officers
took six drivers and 16 commer-
cial trucks off the road in the
Lower Keys this week.
A weight-and-safety inspec-
tion detail staged by the
Department of Transportation's
Motor Carrier Compliance Office
made 118 safety inspections of
commercial trucks during the
sweep that ran Monday through
Thursday.
The detail recovered a skid-
steer loader a piece of heavy
equipment similar to a Bobcat -
and its trailer when a check
showed both were listed ,as
stolen. The equipment was val-
ued at approximately $35,000.
Disposition of the case was
not immediately available.
No specific concerns brought
the six-officer detail from the
Miami DOT office to the Lower
Keys, said Lt. Jeff Frost, informa-
tion officer for the state agency.
"One of the things we do peri-
odically is go to a location and do
a saturation patrol," Frost said.
"We check things like weightand
safety equipment."
The 16 trucks likely were
ordered off the road because of
safety-equipment problems, he
said.
"You cannot let the vehicle


July

Facts
FROM


drive until the violation has been
corrected," Frost said. Additional
details were not immediately
available.
Drivers typically are taken off
the road for being found with a
suspended license, having the
wrong class of license for the
vehicle, or violating hours-of-
service rules, Frost said.
One driver was detained on an
outstanding- warrant.
Weights were checked on 49


of the commercial trucks, with
three found to be overweight.
Because of the U.S. 1 bridges,
weight rules are more restrictive
in the Florida Keys. But
Commercial trucks can obtain a
state "overweight permit" that
allows the vehicle to carry loads
in most areas.
"Because of the bridges, they
cannot use the [general] permit
south of Florida City," Frost said.
"They can obtain a special trip
permit, but that requires detailed
review."

ples, as did staff from Mote
an Marine Laboratory on
ike Summerland Key.
wl- "Maya Totman [from Florida
tly Keys Wildlife Rescue] has been
collecting the sick birds, and now
nbi there's just so many," Hodges
in said.
ich Hodges said the smell is hor-
3ig rendous and it's getting worse as
rds the animals decompose. She said
she was considering staying
of somewhere else for the weekend,
ent but that she's also expecting fam-
m- ily to visit soon.
"Normally the kids are able to
swim in the canal and it keeps
them busy," she said. "Not now.
I'm going to have to take them
out on the boat into the bay."
People living in the area on
canals north of Kyle Boulevard
might want to "keep their ani-
mals and themselves out of the
water," she added.
She's more disheartened by
the loss of life though, describing
a huge spider crab she pho-
tographed that was climbing up
the seawall and other sea animals
struggling to get out.
"I don't know what happened
to any of. these critters, if they
made it out or not," Hodges said.
"Let's hope so."
Eric Bartels, a scientist at
Mote, said the samples were
being tested at the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's research lab in St.
Petersburg; results are not yet

files complaint


He alleges
problem with
election survey
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Key West City Commission
candidate Todd German says he
filed a complaint with the State
Attorney's Office Tuesday alleg-
ing District 2 Commissioner
Mark Rossi had not produced
election surveys he requested.
Friday, he filed a request with
the City Clerk's Office for more
information on those documents,
which Rossi sent out tb voters in
the district.
S"I am disappointed that it took
three weeks to fulfill my public
records request and was forced to
go to the State Attorney's
Office," German said.
German initially requested to
see the completed surveys June 8.
Rossi did not provide them until
recently.
"I'm not at Mr. German's
beckoning call," Rossi said.
The surveys were sent, to
District 2 residents in March,
political consultant Brooks White
said.
Rossi hired White to create the
surveys, which ask generic ques-
tions regarding residents' level of
satisfaction with the direction the
city, which issue they find most
important, Rossi's performance
as a city official and a write-in
question asking what ideas the
citizen would have as to how to
improve Key West.
The questions involving Rossi
and the city's direction allowed
participants to check 1 to 5, 1
being "least satisfied," 3 being
"neutral" and 5 being "most satis-
fied."
He got 175 responses. Of
those, 12 percent were unhappy
with Rossi's performance; the
remaining 88 percent answered
either neutral or in favor, White
said. As far as the city's direction,
65 percent answered either 1. or 2.
Friday, Rossi didn't seem very
concerned about German's com-
plaint.
The surveys are "public
record, I guess," he said. "Who
knows? I paid for them out of my
pocket. Didn't cost the city of


Key West a single cent."
But German said he is satis-
fied with the fact that he's
received the survey but still has.
questions, prompting his Friday
recent request of information to
the city.
A barcode is on each of the
surveys that, according to Rossi,
can track the survey back to the
address from which it came.
"That's baloney," Rossi said,
noting that most people put their
names and return addresses on
the postcard surveys.
Supervisor of Elections Harry
Sawyer said his office usually
uses barcodes to keep track of
which residents have turned in
ballots and which have not.
"I don't think there is anything
salacious about a barcode,"
Sawyer said.
"If a person isn't a candidate,
it has nothing to do with us,"
Sawyer said.
Rossi sent out the surveys
before he re-filed to run for City
Commission Tuesday.
White emphasized the fact the
survey states on the front side
that it was not paid for with city
funds.
As for German's request for
information: "There are many
things within a campaign that
should remain internal," White
said.
"Todd's a whiner," he added.
"What can I say?" Let him get his
own survey."

Catfight goes to commission


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keyioter.com


A walk through the
Hemingway House and Museum
in Key West proves that the,
deceased author's home is still
very much alive.
Alive and purring.
At its meeting Tuesday, the
Key West City Commission will
discuss a legal battle that began in
October 2003 over whether the
cats should be allowed to roam
free throughout the property.
A resolution brought forth by
Mayor Morgan McPherson says
"the cats reside on the property
just as cats did in the time of


Hemingway himself, they are not
on exhibition in the manner of
circus...."
The resolution the County
Commission passed a similar one
earlier this month is a way to
show support for the Hemingway
House in its ongoing battle with
the U.S. Department of
Agriculture, which has problems
with the cats and has tried to get
them caged or removed.
The fight came from a com-
plaint issued by Hemingway
House neighbor and former
Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals Vice


President Debra Schultz, who
claimed the felines weren't being
cared for properly.
"You have a county contractor
[the SPCA runs the Stock Island
animal shelter] who has never
once cited the Hemingway
House," Hemingway House
attorney Cara Higgins said,
adding that Schultz "used her
position as an animal control offi-
cer to wage a personal vendetta
against the Hemingway House."
The U.S. Department of
Agriculture then stepped in and
gave the house staff an ultima-
tum: Confine the animals, or the
house will be fined or the cats
confiscated.
City code says no "more than
four domestic animals on any
premises... However, exceptions
to this requirement may be grant-
ed by the City Commission, with
any conditions deemed appropri-
ate for premises upon which are
kept domestic animals of histori-
cal, social or tourism signifi-
cance..."
The six-toed, or polydactyl,
cats are descendents of
Hemingway's pet Snowball.
Since 1961, the cats have roamed
the property.

SCurrently, the house has 46
cats, and each has a book along
with the names of the parents.
Staff members recognize each of
cats just from a glance.
"They're part of the historic
preservation of the Hemingway
House," Hemingway House man-
ager Jacque Sands said. "These
are my pets and the employees of
the house feel the same way."
According to Higgins, the
USDA sent investigators to clan-
destinely take tours of the house

fasts to see if the cats were roam-
ing nearby Whitehead Street.
Wire fencing was installed
around the perimeter of the house
two years ago. An $8,000 misting
system to deter the animals from
attempting an escape was
installed around the same time,
she said.
"Nothing is enough to satisfy
the USDA," Higgins said.
"Everything we do, they ask us to
do the come back with something
else. It's extremely difficult to hit
a moving target."

Tattoo law returns for vote


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


After much delay, the first
reading of an ordinance that
would allow tattoo artists to
move their businesses into Key
West proper will go before the
City Commission Tuesday.
SA purpose of the proposed
ordinance: "...to regulate tattoo
establishments for the health,
safety and welfare of the resi-
dents and visitors of the city of
Key West; and to establish rea-
sonable regulations for tattoo
establishments to be located in
Key West,,.," the document
reads.
The proposed law has been
tweaked a few times from its
original incarnation.
Four potential parlor owners
have plans to open up shop in
Key West.-Some already have


shops on Stock Island, such as
Paradise Tattoo and Goldie's.
Paradise Tattoo owner Doreen
Eppy already has space at 627
Duval St. and is ready to go if the
ordinance passes. It now sells
clothing and accessories but
would expand with tattoos.
Her Stock Island location has
been operating for 15 years, she
said.
Key West Ink is also prepared
to open as soon as possible,
owner Jim McAlhaney has said.
He has space 717 Duval. It's been
painted,, decorated and cleaned.
More than $500,000 has been
spent on gearing up.
Eppy and McAlhaney have
sued the city, citing violations of
First Amendment rights.
If the city approves tattoo par-
lors on second reading, they will


drop the lawsuit. If not, the fight
continues.
Also on the agenda for
Tuesday, when the commission
meets at 6 p.m. at Old City Hall:
On June 19, the commis-
sion supported the idea of an
assisted-living facility at the
Truman Waterfront by passing on
first reading a resolution asking
voters on the Oct. 2 ballot if they
support the idea.
Tuesday, that's up for a second
and final reading.
The facility would have 135
independent and assisted-living
units for elders of mixed-income
levels at the Truman Waterfront,
a 33-acre parcel passed.from the
U.S. Navy to the city in 2002.
"This is something that we
really owe [the elderly],""
Assisted Living Care Coalition
co-Chairwoman Joan Higgs said
at the last commission meeting.


Retired Key West City
Manager Julio Avael is not ready
to end his career in city govern-
ment.
Avael made the cut as a high-
ranking candidate to be Key
Biscayne village manager in
Miami-Dade County.
According to headhunter
Colin Baenziger of Colin
Baenziger Associates in
Wellington, Key Biscayne is
searching for someone with
strong ties to Miami-Dade
County government, which Avael
lacks.
But what he lacks in that
department he makes up for with
his long career as city manager,
he said. Avael was city manager
of Key West for 11 years until his
contract was cut short earlier this
month.


From this point on, Baenziger
said, the Village Council will
decide the cuts.
On July 11, it will pick the
final five candidates and on the
20th the finalists meet with
department heads and get a tour
of the village.
On July 21 the Village
Council will interview them and
on the 23rd it will select the man-
ager during a special meeting.
Baenziger's firm was hired for
the Key Biscayne search, and it
rooted through resumes and ref-
erences until it whittled a list of
about 50 candidates to 11, includ-
ing Aveal.
The executive search group
has worked in the Keys, includ-
ing leading searches for a
Monroe County. administrator,
Islamorada village manager and
Marathon city manager.

The Truman Little White House in Key West is among the local attractions participating in this
year's 2-for-l coupons for visitors, but the museum and all Historic Tours of America

2-for-I cards get revamped


Program designed
to draw more
visitors to Keys
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

Two-for-1 attractions coupons
are back this summer, sort of.
The Key West Attractions
Association will be printing
50,000 coupon cards in mid-July


for distribution, in southern
Florida. Last year, each advertis-
er was locked into the 2-for-1
summer rate.
This year, advertisers can
choose between various rates,
said Monica Munoz, association
coordinator. For instance, one
water sports company selected a
3-for-2 rate, she said. She
declined to comment on specific
advertisers, who had until June


28 to pay $500 for inclusion.
At least one previous advertis-
er will return: the Harry S
Truman Little White House.
Director Bob Wolz said his
organization is on board for this
summer's card, but isn't sure
which deal they'll choose. But he
said he's pleased that the expan-
sion to include various deals will
make the card affordable for
more attraction owners.

iPhone craze has begun


Apple's cell

At 37, commercial mortgage

an iPhone.


"I usually wait six months to
a year [when buying a new

Natomas, Calif., resident. Since
late last year, however, when
rumors began swirling about a
new cell phone/ music
player/Internet device from
Apple Inc., Peric has positioned
this gadget atop his technolust
list.


Even by Apple's lofty stan-
dards, the buzz surrounding the
iPhone is unprecedented.
A spokesman for AT&T,
which has an exclusive deal to
be the iPhone's cellular carrier,
reports that more than 1 million
people have left requests for fur-
ther information at the compa-

easy to use, stylish and power-
ful," said Mark Donovan, a
senior analyst with M:Metrics.
"That's the hallmark of Apple
products. They have cachet
and a reputation for being easy
to use."
Most seductive among the
iPhone's features is touch-
screen capability, allowing the
user to swipe a finger across
the 3.5-inch display to switch
functions and even type text
messages, e-mails or Web
addresses on a "virtual" key-
board displayed on the screen.
Other functions include a
digital camera, music and
video playback, the full
Macintosh operating system


and Safari Web browser, and
Internet connectivity via Wi-Fi
or the AT&T wireless data net-
work.
It has more subtle features
that could also appeal to users.
Among them is a way to view
a list of voicemails and choose
which ones you want to hear,
rather than having to listen to
all of them.
Tim Bajarin, a Silicon
Valley analyst and longtime
Apple watcher, said wireless
phones have become a world-
wide consumer and business
phenomenon with more than 1
billion sold last year, he said.
There already are a number
of high-end phones on the
market that perform many of
the same tasks as the iPhone,
and then some. Nokia's $750
N95, for example, has Wi-Fi,
an MP3 music player, a large
display and wireless data capa-
bilities, just like the iPhone.
Unlike the iPhone, it also has a
GPS receiver and a 5-
megapixel digital camera built
in. The iPhone's camera is 2
megapixels.

Make yourself count


Annual fish count
gets underway at
Florida Keys reefs
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A volunteer diver conduct-
ing her first fish-count survey
should think of it like going to
a party, Leda Cunningham says.
"There will be people there
you don't know," said the exec-
utive director of the Reef
Environmental Education
Foundation, "but the more time
you spend with them, they
become easier to recognize.
You relax and have a good
time."
From REEF's world head-
quarters in Key Largo, staff and
volunteers are coordinating
,international events and activi-
ties for the 2007 Great Annual
Fish Count.
Gary Davis, a scientist who
organized the first Fish Count
in 1992 in California's Channel
Islands National Park, will be
in the Keys next weekend for
an informal celebration of the
16th annual count.
Paul Humann, a noted
marine photographer and
trustee of the nonprofit REEF,
also will-lead fish-survey dives
on the Keys reefs with a group
from REEF's Discovery Tour.
The Great Annual Fish
Count has been renamed from
the original Great American
Fish Count, reflecting year-
round survey activity that now
extends beyond U.S. borders to
the Caribbean and Canada.
With results from more than
105,000 volunteer surveys sub-
mitted since 1993, Cunningham
said, one of the Fish Count's
most notable achievements has
been "showing that people will
do this, which is cool. It's one
of the real success stories of the
citizen-science movement."
Many professional biolo-
gists and academics initially
were skeptical that a corps of
volunteer .recreational divers
could compile a library of use-
ful scientific information.
Now, those same profession-
als delve into Fish Count

results.
Statistics compiled by REEF
have been used in fish-popula-
tion studies of marine-protected
areas and artificial reefs, and in
assessments of whether a par-
ticular species is being over-
fished. The National Marine
Sanctuary Program is a major
supporter:
"We have one of the most
charismatic study subjects out
there," Cunningham said. "This
is something that inspires pas-
sion in a lot of our volunteers
and keeps them active in the
sport."
Previously, scientists relied
on basic techniques to gauge
fish populations. They totaled
catch logs from commercial
and recreational fishermen, or
went fishing themselves.
"Now we don't have to kill
fish to count them,"
Cunningham said.
Nearly 10,000 divers have
contributed a Fish Count sur-
vey since 1993, with about half
considered currently active in
Sthe effort. Divers can fill out
survey information after attend-
ing a REEF fish-identification
workshop.

arrive at REEF each month,
where Field Operations
Director Joe Cavanaugh logs
the results into a database.
A handful of volunteers hold
Golden Hamlet status after sub-
mitting more than 1,000 sur-
veys.
"One of them lives in New
York City, which means she has
to make a real effort to go div-
ing," Cunningham said. "That's


the power of the program."
REEF's five-year- assess-
ment of fish life on the Spiegel
Grove shipwreck will wrap up
this year, and the group expects
to be active in a similar effort
when the Vandenberg is scut-
tled off Key West.

Carl Ross Key now open to visitors


FLORIDA LIFTS
LIFTS ELEVATORS


It was closed
for spoonbill
nesting season
Carl Ross Key, 7 miles south-
west of Flamingo, is now open for
day use, according to staff with
Everglades National Park.
The small island had been
closed since Dec. 23 to provide
protection for one of Florida


Bay's most significant colonies of
roseate spoonbills. The birds'
nesting season is now over, hence
the opening of the key.
Boaters should use caution
approaching-the island since the
historic channel into it has
changed significantly as a result of
the recent hurricanes.
Due to the effects of hurricanes
in 2005, camping is no longer


available on Carl Ross Key. Park
Superintendent Dan Kimball said
"we are exploring options to pro-
vide additional camping opportu-
nities in the near future in the
Johnson Key area of Florida Bay
to replace camping facilities no
longer available at Carl Ross."
In 2005, Hurricane Wilma tore
apart Carl Ross Key and pruned
the protective tree cover on near-
by Sandy and Frank keys, home to
two major spoonbill nesting


scores


colonies. Both Sandy and Frank
keys have been permanently
closed to public entry for more
than 20 years to protect those nest-
ing colonies.
With less-protective foliage,
nesting spoonbills can be easily
spooked by passing boats and
other human activity, prompting
them to leave their nests and
expose their young to predator
crows.
As such, Frank Key Channel
was temporarily closed to limit
the adverse effects of passing
boats on spoonbills; the temporary
closure was recently lifted.

Shipwrecks and other artifi-

Marathon splits two


Little League

this Monday
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon 9- and 10-
year-old Little League team
split its last two games this
week to bring its record to 2-3
overall five games into a


seven-game Little League
District 8 schedule.
Marathon lost Tuesday to
Liberty City, 12-9, but fol-
lowed that up with a win
against North Miami Beach on
Thursday, 6-5.
Marathon Minors head
coach Rodney Bonilla said the
team continues to play well
against strong Miami squads,
but as has been the case thus


far, pitching continues to
plague them in the games' later
innings.
In Tuesday's game,
Marathon would get on the
board first and build an 8-3
lead over Liberty City after
four innings.
Third basemen Mark Keller
made two stellar defensive
plays at third base in the first
inning to keep Liberty off the

Big offense but no wins


Upper Keys
threaten but
lightning comes
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The Upper Keys Little
League's Minors all-stars scored
13 runs over two midweek
games but came away with a
pair of losses.


"We're scoring runs now, just
not enough," head coach Jason
Richards said before Friday's
game against Kendall
Hammocks (results not available
at press time).
"We're playing pretty well
but running into some tough
teams," Richards said.
The Upper Keys Age 9-10
squad plays Miami Springs at 7
p.m. Monday at the Miami
Springs Rec Center, then closes


the round-robin tour through the
Little League District 8
Tournament with a 7 p.m. Friday
game against Marathon at
Miami Springs.
The Upper Keys (0-4) lost to
a strong Liberty City squad, 13-
6, Monday and to North Miami
Beach, 12-7, Tuesday.
A 40-minute lightning delay
cost the Keys all-stars offensive
momentum against North Miami
Beach.

. .3 All the crazies,
. . 9 including me,
.. .10 sure to be out


Afew months ago I wrote
about a new line of cloth-
ing called Glowfur, and if
it wasn't fur and if it wasn't
quite so spend, I'd be all over
it. It would be perfect for
Fantasy Fest, but how often can
you wear fur in the Keys?
Well, another event has
sprung up that made me immedi-
ately wish I had a Glowfur out-
fit: tonight's Full Moon Glow
Party at the Boondocks minia-
ture golf course on Ramrod Key.
They're serving up glow shots
and drinks, glow gear, and live


Music is
by, of
course, the
Moon
Dogs,

have to



least be
colorful, if
Jessica not glow-
Machetta ing. I
expect the
scene might be vibrating for
some. Oh! I think my kids have
a light saber somewhere.
Speaking of kids and "Star
Wars," mine are spending time
in the Midwest where they're


happily playing with my three
nephews. My brother and I had
the entire "Star Wars" figurine
collection and all the accessories
in the 1980s, including the vari-
ous versions of Princess Leia,
Luke Skywalker, etc. The only
ones I managed to move away
with are Luke, Han Solo and a
storm trooper. (They're sitting
on my desk, next to the orange
VW vanagon matchstick car. My
brother, apparently, kept the
General Lee.)
In another recent column, I
urged readers to vote for Yoda to
be on the official Star Wars
stamp issued by the U.S. Postal
Service. Well, win, he did. I
attribute his victory to this col-
umn and your support. Thanks
for using the force.
With the kids being gone and
television having little to offer
but "Law & Order" or "CSI"
reruns, I've been doing a lot of
Web surfing when I can't be on
the water. MySpace, which I've
poo pood as juvenile in the past,
has proven to be an excellent
way to waste time. It's a great
way to keep up on friends far
away and a good way to find


some who I've lost track of.
I admit though, I do feel a lit-
tle funny sending some of my
local friends and co-workers
message asking if they'll "add
me as a friend." Some of them,
too, post photos and blogs that
all add up to way TMI.
On another time-wasting
spree, I surfed eBay to see if I
could expand my "Star Wars"
figurine collection. Yoda's going
for double digits, up to around
$25, but for R2D2, bidding starts
at $1. Poor little dude. I even
dressed up as R2D2 for
Halloween one year. I had no
idea he was completely uncool.
On that note, I think I'll hide
my kids' Bratz collection while
they're away and stock their
room with Star Wars "people,"
as we used to call them,
Matchbox cars and others. That
way, when they return, I can
show them how to put down the
PlayStation controller and have
some real fun.

tricky. My memory (never a
trustworthy friend) tells me I
wrote it when my daughter was
very young. She's closing in on
20 now, so that puts us at the late
1980s and Miss Ellen would also
have been in her late 80s.
She seemed quite old to me at
the time, but she was still living
in her little cottage deep in
Bahama Village on a little street
that didn't go anywhere.
I found it not through street
numbers and names, but by land-
marks and descriptions. I walked
onto the tidy porch and knocked
on a screen door. This was
before air conditioning was ordi-
nary. Only the library, hair salons
and drugstores reliably had it -
and a precious few restaurants.
The interior of her shotgun
house was dark, a fan whirred
somewhere, and the hallway vis-
ible from the door tunneled to a
dead end in a far room.
I knocked again. I had
phoned earlier and reminded her
I was coming. Did I misinterpret
some visual cues in getting here
and get the wrong house?
I called out "Miss Sanchez?"
She was too revered for me to
assume I could call her by any-
thing but a formal moniker.
From the shadowy depths, I
heard a resonant voice sing the
refrain from an ancient spiritual
hymn.
"I'm coming I'm comin'...."

I
P


ommelier Tom Smith, of
Marker 88 Restaurant in
Islamorada, pours the first
of six sparkling wines into a
guest's flute and smiles when the
taster says she didn't know
champagne was made also made
in Spain.
Technically, there is no
"champagne" made outside the
Champagne region of northeast-
em France. They own the name.
They own the grapes. And they
own the methode. They've even
forced makers of sparkling wine
to use "m6thode traditionnelle"
instead of the familiar "m6thode
champenoise" to describe the
process by which the wine is
made.
So be it. Au revoir Dom
Pdrignon.
Every Thursday evening,
starting around 5:30 p.m. (or so),
Smith guides tasters as they
explore a series of wines. The
tasting are held on Marker 88's
bayfront beach.
On this night, Smith poured
six sparkling wines from dry to
sweet, from Spain, Italy and
New Mexico, U.S.A. (really).
Up first was Cristalino Brut
from Spain. The Spaniards call
their sparkling wine cavaa,"
which must be differentiated
from the cava that's an alkaloid-
based tea served in Fiji and other
South Pacific countries.
The Cristalino Brut, which
retails for about $10 is a crisp,
medium-bodied, dry cava. I
thought it finished a bit hard
with a slight bitterness, but other
tasters seemed to like it (calls for
seconds and thirds were heard).
Might work nicely as the base
for a mimosa or pomegranate
cocktail because it doesn't have
the flavor intensity of some
U.S.-made sparkling wines.
Next in line was Gruet Brut


from the
Gruet
Winery in
New
Mexico.
SThe family
had been
.. m e making
champagne
in France
since 1952
under the
Gruet et
Bob Serata Fils brand.
Patriarch
Gilbert Gruet planted some
experimental vineyards in 1984
in Engle, near the town of Truth
or Consequence, in the hills 170
miles south of Albuquerque.
In 1987, Gilbert's son,
Laurent, made the first sparkling
wines from the family's grapes
(released in 1989), a little more
than 400 cases. By 2005, Gruet
Winery produced 80,000 cases
of wine and sold them in 47
states.
I found the Gruet Brut NV
(non-vintage), about $14, a bit
light and lacking. Another taster
called it "very domestic." If you
like the crispness of gewiirz-
traminer or light lager beers, this
sparkling wine might be for you.
Mont Marcal Cava Brut
Reserva, about $15, from the
Pened6s wine region in Spain is
made from xarelolo, macabeo,
parellada and chardonnay
grapes, and aged for 24 months
with the yeast. I thought it was
the best of the three dry pour-
ings, with aromas of apples and
pears, lots of bubbles and a
fresh, crisp finish.
The three sweet sparkling
wines that followed were all
from Italy.
La Spinetta Moscato di Asti
Bricco Quaglia, about $16, was
medium sweet with enough acid-


I


S


ity to taste more crisp and light
than syrupy-sweet.
Domenico De Bertiol
Prosecco, about $16, on the
other hand, was a low-alcohol,
creamy-sweet sparkling wine
that, according to the general
consensus, seemed right at home
on the beach. Too much sugar
for me but many bf the tasters
enjoyed several pours.
Baccorosa Vino Spumante
Dolce, about $12, was pale red
(a la ros6) with aromas of pas-
sion fruit and flowers. The wine
is lightly sweet, not overly sug-
ary, has a fruity aftertaste and
slightly higher alcohol level (7
percent versus 5 percent) than
the prosecco.
For more information on the
Thursday wine tasting, call
Marker 88 at 852-9315.

And other venues
geared up for
fireworks, fun
By DICK CONKLIN
L'Attitudes Contributor

T hink you're a genuine
old time C.'onch? Lived
in the Keys for a long
time? Remember a band
called The Recoil.; The
Ulrra% iolets `Vhale How
about The Sonns of Eve?
OK, we'll make it easier.
Does the Key Lime Pie Band
ring any bells?
Members of one local band
remember all of those groups,
since they played with them
back in the day. Today, these
Keys musical pioneers call
themselves More Than 4, and
they still play good old clas-
sic rock and roll as well as
modern day rock, folk, coun-
try, island, calypso, easy lis-
tehing, standards and both
contemporary and original
Christian music.
If you are planning to
spend the Fourth of July at
the Lower Keys Rotary
Club's annual family fun day
at Sugarloaf Airport, you'll
get to hear them live.
More Than 4 consists of
two couples that have been
playing music together for a
long time. Meri-Lynn and Joe
Britz and Jeri and Barry
Chiagouris are a versatile
group of musicians/singers
who play weddings, events,
private parties and club gigs.
Joe plays lead and rhythm
guitar and sings vocals (and
occasionally gets on the
drums or piano), Barry plays
rhythm and lead guitar and is
a lead vocalist (and has also
been known to play bass,
piano or harps), and Jeri

plays the bass guitar, sings
some back-up vocals and
plays tambourine and shakers.
Meri-Lynn plays the bass on
some songs and does some
vocals, but mostly plays key-
board with a bit of percussion
thrown in. More Than 4 is
fun to watch because they
switch around for different
songs afnd thrive on the vari-
ety.
Barry has been making
music since the '60s. He met
his future wife Jeri, as well as
Joe and Meri-Lynn, at the
Vineyard Fellowship church
on Big Pine, where they also
play music at the Sunday
services. He comes from a
family of musicians, and says
he is "living a dream making
music." He enjoys fishing,
going on cruises and "playing
guitar with my honey."
Jeri knew that she would
have to play some kind of
music if she was going to
keep up with Barry and his
friends, so she tried several
instruments before learning
the bass. She is a high school
dropout who went back to
Key West High School to get
her diploma at age 25. She
recalls her induction into the
world of bass players.
"Bill Underwood, our lead
guitar player at church, one
day commented how nice it
would be if they could find a
bass player. I figured, 'well
heck, how hard can it be?'
Thanks Bill you rock!"
Key West native Meri-
Lynn admits that she and Joe

Keys 'ladies' vie for Miss Firecracker title


Shis year marks the 20th
anniversary of the Miss
Firecracker Pageant a
national event that has been a
Key West tradition since in
1994.
Producer and organizer
Michael Epting (Miss
Firecracker No. 4 in Greenville,
S.C., a.k.a. Queen Mother XVI
Krystal Klear) took over the
local pageant from Charlie
Powell (the first winner,
Charlena Sugarbaker) in 2000.
"The Miss Firecracker
Pageant has raised over $50,000
to date for local nonprofit organ-
izations," Epting said. "AIDS
Help has been its main fundrais-
ing effort, and will continue to
Sbe my contribution to the agency
and its clients."

Circa 1987
Where Did Miss Firecracker
Come From, Anyway? Well, in
Greenville, S.C., in 1987, the
Miss South Carolina Pageant
was about to happen at the posh
"Castle Club" on July 4, a very
busy bar night.
The owners, managers and
patrons at "Bushwhacker's Pub"
across town wanted to do some-
thing to bring patrons to their bar


and make some money that
night, so they needed to come up
with a gimmick.
A brainstorming session fol-
lowed and the first Miss
Firecracker Pageant was born.
Only this would be like no other
"beauty" pageant it would be
totally campy, complete with
hairy chests, mustaches and
beards, beaded gowns, rhine-
stones and high heels.
Bushwhacker's still is known
for being a men's bar, as it was
then, so the thought of a bunch
of men in dresses in the South,
brought in the masses to see the


spectacle. Reportedly, attendance
at the Miss South Carolina
Pageant did, in fact, suffer as a
result.
The winner of that first pag-
eant was Powell (Charlena
Sugarbaker), who moved to Key
West in 1989, shortly after pass-
ing on his title to a performer
named Flamingo Pink. After a
few years, the pageant folded in
Greenville, but its "matriarch"
kept the tradition alive in the
Keys, where it grew into the
more refined pageant it is today,
including professional drag per-
formances and more.

Band has history

Marathon Yacht Club, and
made money doing it!"
After eloping to Chicago,
the Britzes returned to the
Keys in the '70s and recon-
nected with Bye, forming a
band named Whale, with Joe
playing drums and Meri-Lynn
on the keyboards. When the
band broke up they formed a
duo and played the Holiday
Inn and Dockside in
Marathon in 1976.
The Key Lime Pie Band,
featuring some new musicians
such as Keys legend Terry
Cassidy, played venues like
Angler's Lounge at Faro
Blanco. The Monroe County
Commission proclaimed their
song "The Conch Republic"
as the official anthem for the
new "nation." They are men-
tioned in the book, "The
Conch That Roared," on Page
59.
When the new Seven Mile
Bridge opened for traffic, par-
tygoers ate stone crabs and
the Key Lime Pie Band
played on the hump.
In the early '80s, the
Britzes opened a music venue
of their own, Coconuts
Liquors and Lounge on Big
Pine Key. Today, Coconuts is
known for its late-night music
as well as a variety of
fiundrlaiapr for lnrcl causes

blend the island music that
the "Pie Band" was known
for with contemporary
Christian music, so they
could play at church as well
as other venues.
Meri-Lynn said, "Although
we can play late night gigs,
we really prefer the 7 to 11
p.m. jobs. We are two old
married couples, but we defi-
nitely rock!"
Their latest CD which
is previewed on their Web ,
site -- features songs written
by band members. They have
a Christmas CD in the works,
and more new songs they
want to record after that.
Coconuts has been open
seven days a week, 7 a.m. to
4 a.m., for the last 24 years.
"We have music on
Thursday, Friday and
Saturday nights and an
Internet jukebox where-you
can play songs you can't hear
anywhere else," Joe said. "We
have raised tens of thousands
of dollars for people in need
with our fundraisers over the
years and are planning anoth-
er one on July 15. A couple of
locals are in dire need, and
Terry Cassidy and friends are
spearheading the event. We
are always amazed at the big
turnouts of musicians and
friends and feel blessed that
Coconuts and our willing
staff can be a part of
onmPthin sno nnood for our


Os, the Britzes and community."

Art in Public
Places board
taking proposals
By CLAUDIA MILLER
L'Attitudes contributor

Calling all artists! The
Florida Keys Council for
the Arts is accepting
applications from artists who
would like to be considered for
art projects that will be a part of
the new Murray E. Nelson
Government and Cultural Center
in Key Largo.
Located at mile marker 102,
the Nelson Center will offer
31,200 square feet of office
space and a community room
that seats 300. Commission
meetings will be held at the cen-
ter, and it will be home to the
county Planning and Building
Departments, Sheriff's Office,
and other administrative offices.
The space will also be used for a
wide range of cultural and com-
munity activities such as per-

compared to the floor tiles for an idea of how big it is.


forming arts and community
elections.
Monroe County Art in Public
Places, a county appointed com-
mittee that is administered
through the arts council, will be
responsible for commissioning
the artwork and administering


the funds. They will be working
with a budget of approximately
$86,500, which is the result of a
county ordinance that mandates
that 1 percent of new county
building construction costing a
minimum of $500,000 be set
aside for art at the site.


Signing event helps Keys cats


Hemingway writer
joins SUFA at
Voltaire Books
Voltaire Books, 330.
Simonton St. in Key
West, is hosting an event
for cat lovers today. Author and
Hemingway scholar Carlene
Fredericka Brennen will be on
hand to discuss her book
"Hemingway's Cats An
Illustrated Biography."
Brennen spent 11 years
researching her book and is
considered an authority on


Ernest Hemingway's cats.
"No man loved his cats
more" Brennen said.
"Hemingway adopted stray cats
and dogs in every city where he
lived."
Cats and kittens from the
Stand Up For Animals Shelter
will be at the book signing and
available for adoption. Voltaire
Books will offer a free copy of
"Hemingway's Cats" to anyone
who adopts a cat and the book-
store will also make a 25 per-
cent donation to the shelter for
every "Hemingway's Cats"


book sold.
Cat adoptions will be held
from noon to 4:30 p.m.
Discussion and book signing is
from 3 to 4:30 p.m.
Brennen, who says she wrote
her book for people who love
cats, told L'Attitudes she's over-
whelmed by the response she's
gotten from animal lovers from
all over who have purchased her
book. The book is a photo-
intensive coffee table book, fea-
turing many photos of
Hemingway never before pub-
lished.
For more information, call
Voltaire Books at 296-3226.


To be considered, artists need
to complete a two-part applica-
tion process. First, they must
complete a Request for
Qualifications, which has to be
turned in by July 11, 2007 at 3
p.m. Nance Frank, chairwoman
.of the Art in Public Places com-
mittee, said that when looking at
artists' qualifications, the com-
mittee wants to make sure it has
a high standard of work.
"We're looking at things like
have they done something large
in the past and has it withstood
the test of time," she said.
Frank said artists who are
deemed qualified would be noti-
fied usually within one week and
asked to submit a Request for
Proposal, outlining their pro-
posed project for the building.
Artists who have pre-qualified
for previous Art in Public Places
projects will automatically be
sent a proposal request. The
projects can be for any type of
visual medium.
"We've had everything from
elevator doors to paintings-to
sculptures to artwork in con-
crete," Frank said.
The committee, which selects
the proposals, consists of five -
members plus two non-voting
members appointed by-the coun-
ty administrator. They will --
review all of the proposals and
rank them on a 100-point sys-
tem, 20 points of which is auto-
matically allotted to Monroe
County artists.
"Selected artists don't have to
be local, but local artists get 20
percent more points than any
artists from outside the county,"
Frank explained. "We want the
art to look like it's from here."
Other criteria include quality,
enduring value and maintenance,
appropriateness to site and char-
acter of the Florida Keys._
"We're looking for the
biggest bang for our buck for the


county," Frank said. "We want
something that will really give
you a sense of place, a sense of
history and a sense of who we
are. That's what public art is all
about."
Photographer Debra Yates
work is at the Roth building on
Plantation Key, which the arts
council says is the first building
that the Art in Public Places
funding was applied to.
Besides the Nelson
Government Center, others under-
way that will have art displays
from the program are the
Freeman Justice Center in Key
West, the North Key Largo Fire
Station, the Tavemier Fire Station,
and the old Tavemier school.
The arts council also manages "
rotating art exhibits at govern-
ment buildings throughout the
KeysfThe Key West and
Marathon airports; in Key West:
the Gato Building, Social
Security Administration building,
Lower Keys Medical Center,
Historic Key West Courthouse,
Monroe County Courthouse
Annex, and the American Cancer
Society; in Marathon: the
Marathon Government Center;
and in Tavemier: the Care
Center, and the Monroe County
Health Department.

program can find details' at
