Witness: Victim's mother at scene


The killing was a shocking
crime in a county that has expe-
rienced only one murder each of
the past three years but the
second reported murder within
six days in Key Largo.
This week, Monroe County
Medical Examiner Michael
Hunter ruled homicide in the
death of Edward Bozarth, 62,
who was found dead Sunday
aboard his liveaboard boat at
Gilbert's Marina next to the
Jewfish Creek Bridge.
Hunter found that he died of
blunt trauma. Detectives say he
likely was dead awhile since his
body was badly decomposed.
Police said Friday's shooting
happened in the Hibiscus Park
neighborhood at mile marker
101.5. Witnesses told The
Reporter the shooting happened
around 7:15 a.m. outside
Arenas' Hibiscus Lane home.

Initially, police said Arenas
may have fled the scene in what
they say could have been a
stolen white. Isuzu truck with the
license plate number D913PB.
He was considered armed and
At press time, he was being
held, and questioned about
details of the slaying and his
Deputies did not find a
weapon at the murder scene but
did find a nearby-parked black
Ford truck registered to Arenas.
Police did not say how many
shots were fired, but seven shell-
casing markers were placed on
the street by investigators.
Glinda Sanders of Key Largo
did not see the shooting, but said
she was in the neighborhood vis-
iting friends when the murder
happened. She said Proenza,
who she said lived in the Calusa
Camp Resort at mile marker
101.5, walked across U.S. 1
toward Hibiscus Lane.

"She was standing outside on
the road talking on the phone
when we passed by there at 7:15
[a.m.]," Sanders said.
Sanders said the victim's
mother was present when her
daughter was shot.
She followed her daughter
across the highway from Calusa
to Hibiscus Park to calm her
down because she and Arenas
had been arguing on and off all
night, Sanders and other neigh-
bors said.
Sanders said police arrived
minutes after the shooting.
This was the third Monroe
County murder this year; the
first was in Key West in January.
The last time there was more
than one murder in the Keys was
in 2003; five people were killed
that year. The year previous, two
people were killed.
Three people each were mur-
dered in the Keys in both 2001
and 2000.

Proposed reactor worries some

FPL /From

liminary application in a very
long planning process."' *
The step is to seek a land-use
change from Miami-Dade
County for portions of FPL's
11,000-acre property. Turkey
Point now houses two nuclear
plants, two oil-or-gas plants, and
a newly opened natural gas plant.
The entire approval process
for new nuclear plants may take
12 years, Veenstra said.
Applications are reviewed at the
local, state and national level.
The notice still concerned Key
Largo resident Joe Costa.
"I don't think Turkey Point is
the right spot, with all the hurri-
canes and storms we get," Costa
said. "I talked to my neighbors
and they're all against it. They
should put it out in the
Everglades someplace."
FPL says it must boost its
overall generating capacity by a
third to meet the expected
demand in 2020.
"This is a step to continue
evaluation of Turkey Point as the
site for potential nuclear genera-
tion in the future," Veenstra said.
"These things have a very long
lead time. If we don't get started
now, we would not be able to

have that option in the future."
FPL recently was blocked by
the state Public Service Com-
mission in its efforts to build a
large coal-powered generating
facility near Lake Okeechobee.
That denial has nothing to do
with the announcement of possi-
ble nuclear expansion at Turkey
Point, Veenstra said.
"There is no connection
between the two," he said. "I can
see where it might look that way,
but there isn't. It's a different
While no final decision has
been made on a site for new gen-
erating facilities, Veenstra
acknowledged Turkey Point
offers advantages for FPL:
A large property already
owned by the company.
+ Power-generating infra-
structure already in place.
The local staff already
includes experts in nuclear reac-
"Our largest customer base is
in South Florida," Veenstra said.
"It makes sense to put [generat-
ing plants] where they are needed
the most."
Turkey Point originally was
selected, in part, because it lies
about 25 miles from, Miami.
\ hen the two existing reactors
went into service in 1972 and

1973, Turkey Point was consid-
ered remote.
Key Largo residents in the
emergency zone receive annual
reminders to check evacuation
plans for a nuclear emergency at
Turkey Point.
Basically, it directs Upper
Keys residents to head for
Few residents seem alarmed
by the prospect.
"It's not something that I can
remember ever coming up," said
Burke Cannon, president of the
Island of Key Largo Federation
of Homeowners Associations.
FPL points to its 35-year safe-
ty record with nuclear reactors at
its plants at Turkey Point and St.
Lucie. "Turkey Point's existing
nuclear power plants withstood a
direct hit in 1992 from Category
5 Hurricane Andrew," according
to utility information.
South Florida's burgeoning
population now lives on nearby
land that was vacant or farmed
when the two existing reactors
went into service in 1972 and
That worries Costa, whose
daughter lives near Homestead.
"There's all those people and the
treasure of the environment,"
Costa said. "One little mistake
x ill mess it all up."

Boat owner watches
suspect take ~vessel

A Key Largo resident was sur-
prised when he saw someone
hooking up his boat and trailer to
a truck and driving away
Wednesday afternoon, according
to the Monroe County Sheriff's
Spokesman Greg Artman said
the victim called the Sheriff's
Office and reported suspect was
traveling south from mile marker
88 with the stolen 20-foot boat on
a trailer. Deputies spotted the s~us-
pect and pulled him over at mile
marker 84.
Armando Torres, 40, of- Opa
Locka claimed he was picking up
the boat as requested by a friend,
Artman said. However, deputies
noted Torres used a, device
designed to bypass the trailer-
hitch lock to tow the boat away
and thatthbe owner said he didn't
give anyone penrassion to move
the boat.

No one will
confirm who
approached him

The city of Marathon may not
be looking far to replace City
Manager Mike Puto in the event
he resigns or the city elects not to
renew his one-year contract.
Puto's contract expires Sept.
20 and Key Colony Beach Mayor
Clyde Burnett said he has been
approached to gauge his interest
in the position.
"There's a couple of residents
in Marathon who said you know
the system, you get along with
the people and some nice flatter-
ing things," Burnett said, declin-
ing to name his suitors.
Burnett did admit the prospect
is intriguing, but said he is unsure
whether it would be the right
position for him.
"I'm in a good spot, but every-
body looks for new goals and
ambitions," Burnett said. "I prob-
ably would consider it if the
opportunity knocked on my
Puto has said previously that
he could sense the City Council
might have a "feeling that they
want to go in a different direc-
tion" after questions arose about
the quality of job performance.
"I haven't heard anything neg-
.ative like there was before, so
I'm doing the things I need to
do," Puto said this week, adding
any split would be amicable.
"There was a little talk a while
ago, but they haven't been push-
ing, so I'm comfortable."
Puto, a Marathon native, was
originally hired as city communi-
ty services director in 2003. He
was awarded the manager's posi-
tion after a nationwide search in
October 2004.
Puto's salary now stands at
$105,000, significantly less than
his counterparts in Islamorada
and Key West.
With the exception of Pete
Worthington, all of Marathon's
council members were aware
Burnett had been approached.
But no details were forthcoming
about who approached him.
"I have heard that he would be

interested in pursuing it,"
Councilman Don Vasil said. "He
would be a serious contender
because he's demonstrated good
leadership in Key Colony
Both Worthington and Vice
Mayor Marilyn Tempest said that
if a change were to occur, it must
be done properly.
"I would be livid if we did not
follow a normal recruiting
process," Tempest said. "If Clyde
were interested in the job, I'm
sure he will apply."
Mayor Chris Bull and
Councilman Mike Cinque
declined to commenton a possi-
ble change, saying Marathon has
a city manager in place. Bumett
echoed that sentiment.
"I could see nothing happen-
ing because he's well-liked in
Marathon," he said. "I have-no
clue what's going on over there
and I'm trying to do the best I can
for Key Colony Beach and fight
their battles."
Burnett moved to Key Colony
in 2000 after 32 years as a crimi-
nal-court director in Ohio and has
been on the city's commission
since that time.

Mayfield's return would

calm 'cane center's storm

Let's draft Max Mayfield out of retirement.
That seems to be the best way to end the bizarre goings-on at
the National Hurricane Center, where nearly half the staff has
mutinied and called for Director Bill Proenza's resignation or
It's an unprecedented public display.
Mayfield was the grandfatherly and beloved director from
January 2000 to this past January. He was the rock 'n roll star of
weather experts, and his calming demeanor on television during
times of emergency guided millions of people through some of
the busiest hurricane seasons in history.
His replacement, Proenza, has come under fire from the very
people he directs, and what timing we're barely into the six-
month hurricane season that started June 1.
The revolt's come about because senior forecasters with years
at the National Hurricane Center say Proenza is destroying the
public's confidence in forecasting by continually talking about
the risks the aging weather satellite QuikScat poses to the pub-
In fact, he spent considerable time on that very subject May
30, when he spoke at a hurricane awareness conference hosted
by the Keynoter and National Weather Service at the Marathon
Government Center.
Many say it poses no risks at all and a larger concern is mod-
em hurricane-hunter planes. Others say the same thing.
According to The Miami Herald, Jeff Masters, chief meteorol-
ogist for the Weather Underground, which provides forecasts for
The Associated Press, Google and hundreds of other clients, said
"Proenza's estimates of forecast deterioration are based on a
study that examines a small number of forecasts, is contradicted
by other studies and has not yet been published in a peer-
reviewed journal, an unusual circumstance."
The Herald quoted him as saying Proenza "should resign this
But not everyone is on the boot-Proenza bandwagon.
Bob Atlas, who runs the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration's Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological
Laboratory on Virginia Key, was a key member of the team that
developed and initially worked with QuikScat, and he's come to
Proenza's defense.
Meanwhile, the upheaval at the National Hurricane Center has
gotten so bad that the National Weather Service has sent down a
special "assessment team" to review the leadership and opera-
Proenza's a decent man but to use a baseball analogy, when the
manager loses the team, it's time to go. And Proenza has lost the

Keys Opinion

Big Pine needs a fire station as soon as possible

After finding out that the county pulled the
plug on the new firehouse on Big Pine Key, I
agree with Commissioner George Neugent that
this project became the back-burner project for
the past four years.
The county officials and commissioners
should put this back bn the agenda as a No. 1
priority because the safety of homeowners as
well as tourists is being jeopardized because of
the sinking of ships and buying waterfront
There should be plenty of money set aside
each year for public-safety projects. If this proj-
ect would have gone through when it was origi-
nally proposed, the cost factor would have been
a lot less than what it will be if it ever gets

The new Marathon Fire Station, which is
costing around $6 million, is just about com-
pleted. The longer it takes to build the new sta-
tion on Big Pine, it could well exceed that fig-
Fire stations provide multiple uses for the
community, such as meetings and functions.
Firefighters spend one third of their lives living
there, and provide office space for administra-
tion and use them for youth field trips.
I feel the personnel of the Big Pine fire
department earned and deserve a new firehouse
after living in a nearly condemned building for
the past 16 years.

Tell council members your thoughts on sewer vote

Tuesday, the Marathon City Council is sched-
uled to vote on the single most important issue
affecting Marathon since incorporation: approving
the contract for the installation of the sewers. The
City Council is united in its support of sewers for
the city but divided on the funding for those sew-
ers who is going to pay for what.
There are several critical issues:
The latest estimate to complete the first area
is $32.8 million.
+ State and federal funding is $8 million,
which leaves $24.8 million to be paid by the resi-
dents of Marathon.
Funding is less than 25 percent. Why so
Estimated cost per residential dwelling for
completion is $15,000 (this excludes lateral
hookups and monthly ongoing fees).

The Little Venice area cost per dwelling ran
at $4,200. Why are some council members will-
ing to settle for costs that are 300 percent higher
than Little Venice cost?
Please plan to attend the City Council meeting
at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Marathon
Government Center to voice your concern. It is
critical the city provides accurate cost information
and secures the greatest funding possible from the
state and federal governments before we proceed
any further.
E-mail addresses of council members are
available on the city Web site. Their phone num-
bers are Mayor Chris Bull, 731-3082;
Councilwoman Marilyn Tempest, 743-6736;
Councilman Mike Cinque, 743-6519; Councilman

Keys birds get helping hands both near, far

I write to publicly thank Ms. Maya Totman of
Florida Keys Wildlife Rescue for her extraordi-
nary efforts to encourage the Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority to use netting as a barrier to
prevent bird strikes at the water tank in Key West.
This is indeed good news for birds and all us
humans who care about the human-associated haz-
ards that unintentionally take their lives, in this
case of all things, a seemingly benign water tank.
When Ms. Totman contacted me, I was at first
surprised to learn about the collision victims at the
tank, and then especially pleased to offer her
advice on how to prevent these unintentional kills
based on my studies addressing avian mortality.
I receive many requests for my opinion and
help in general on human-related avian mortality,
but it is rare that I learn about what, if anything, is
done with what I share. Maya Totman is an excep-
tion, so here I thank Maya, and along with all
those who are interested in preventing the uninten-
tional deaths of our wild birds, I ask her to please
accept our sincerest gratitude for all her dedicated
hard work on behalf of birds, especially the white-
crowned pigeons and others that have been vic-
tims of this water tank.
It has been a privilege and a pleasure to witness

her passionate interest in saving these lives, and I
am very grateful to have had the opportunity to
interact with her.

Keys Opinion

Park Service needs to consider Keys economy

The National Park Service recently
concluded workshops on the
Everglades National Park general
management plan. Park employees
presented the different options for
managing the national park for the
next 10 to 20 years.
Both of the workshops held in the
Upper Keys were heavily attended.
The participants at both were very
vocal about the plan and park officials
received a lot of feedback. It was
great to see our community so
involved and so passionate.
Our task of protecting the Keys is
not complete with just giving our
feedback at the workshops. Two of
these management options are very
restrictive and they will have negative
effects on the Upper Keys economy.
Many of us are very concerned
about outside conservative environ-
mental parties getting involved and
swaying the outcome through money,
inside contacts or media. With enough
pressure, decisions will be made with-
out understanding all the conse-
Another concern is no economic
impact study is planned until the final

management option is selected. This is
wrong and indicates the lack of under-
standing or care for our economy.
We.are seeing the result of feed-
back. Though our involvement in the
county budget process,'we are having
an impact on county spending deci-
sions. We need to apply the same
approach to this issue.
Please contact as many federal,
state and local officials as possible.
Communicate your concerns. The Key
Largo Chamber of Commerce can
supply contact information. We can
impact the final outcome by just get-
ting involved.
One final thought: The health of
Everglades National Park is very
important to all of us who live and
work in the Florida Keys. Something
must be done to slow and stop the
damage to this unique resource.
The point should not be that our
economy should take precedence over
the environment. We just want the
economic impact to be considered and

Village stumbles along

It is high time for the Islamorada
Village Council to get a life and find
another law firm to represent its citi-
zens. Given a choice, Weiss, Serota
never seems to prefer negotiation, only
litigation. Seabreeze is another case in
It did not take a law degree to pre-
dict the outcome of that one, nor did
the outcome of the Island Silver prop-
erty case warrant an appeal. This
approach, to run the village from a
courtroom, does not bode well for any-
one except the lawyers. In fact, going
all the way back to the Coconuts case,
everyone lost. The history of the vil-
lage indicates that someone is winning,
but it is clearly not its citizens.
All you have to do is ride from end
to end of our community to realize that
the village needs to change direction.
Business after business is abandoned,
falling down and/or shuttered. I see no
direction coming from our so-called
leaders. The only direction I see is a
stop sign.
Is the new condo construction on
Windley Key what the village wants?
In fact, two of four letters of under-
standing issued by our planning direc-
tor are more than controversial; they
are precedent setting in the wrong
Add to these mistakes the closed
restaurants, a boarded grocery and our
only service station converted into an
uelv sunoort facility for one of our

best resorts, and it does not bode well
for controlled direction.
Add to this the bungled opportuni-
ties for affordable housing and
Islamorada gets an F.
For a start, we need a new law firm,
one in the village and has a history of
solving problems, not creating them.
Then we need to listen to the needs of
the businesses in return for their coop-
eration to do things right. Build the fire
station on Lower Matecumbe now.
Stop spending money in the park.
Repeal the chain-store ordinance
and before I forget, we need to change
to a strong mayor form of government.

Saunders let us down
I read your recent editorial titled
"Keys still bear insurance brunt." My
question is why did our state repre-
sentative, Ron Saunders, vote for this
bill that punishes us in the Keys?
Did the November 2006 election
not teach our elected officials any-
Why did Mr. Saunders vote for
this bill and reduce the taxpayers of
Monroe County's chances of harden-
ing our homes? Be a leader, not a fol-
lower, of the people up North.

Homespun history

bridges generations

Today's coincidence of dates, 7-7-
07, has led to a flurry of weddings
here in the Keys and in other parts of
the world.
Last week, Keys Sunday captured
the phenomenon in a cover article
about Keys wedding planners actual-
ly having to turn away business today
because they ran out of facilities to
handle multiple ceremonies.
There are only so many sunset
photo ops to be staged at Smathers
Beach before the crowding begins to
detract from the special moment.
Some brides and grooms cite the
numbers combination as
lucky while others' cite the
ease of never forgetting
their wedding anniversary.
Today, I won't be attend-
ing any weddings, but will
participate in celebrating
three birthdays at a special
family gathering.
My father-in-law turns 80
later this month. My daugh-
ter-in-law, born July 7, had
the inspiration for this mul-
tiple-birthday get-together, Wayne
which includes my son's Keynoter
July 28 birthday.
So with three birthdays
and family scattered across both
coasts, we've gathered in the moun-
tains of West Virginia, where my
wife's family traces its roots back to
German immigrants brought over in
the 1800s to dig for coal.
Leonard G. "Pete" Wolfe is the clan
patriarch these days, having outlived
four older siblings. He's still not sen-
ior, however, since his oldest sister,
June Pepper, is still wowing residents
at a senior center where she volun-
teers time when she's not busy with
her garden, church activities or visit-
ing shut-ins.
At age 85, June can still lead a rous-
ing chorus while playing the piano or
church organ. And she has the joy of
not thinking of herself as old.
It's a trait shared by all the Wolfe
My father-in-law spent the day
before his birthday party installing a
bathroom and groused afterwards that
his back was acting up (after all that
bending, lifting, hammering etc.).
His back has been a problem since
he first worked in a handpick coal

mine where small ponies were used to
haul out coal cars. Men and boys
worked stooped over for most of the
One of my first experiences with
my wife's dad involved helping him
move an entire wooden porch using
chains, pulleys and a backhoe.
I was grunt labor on that job- and let
me tell you the word.is appropriate.
Might even add the word "ouch"
after the lifting mechanism slipped
and my father-in-law managed to
drop a corner of the porch on me. But
no lasting damage and I'm still his
helper, although I no
longer tackle big jobs like
moving porches or digging
Of the many great stories
we'll share this weekend
about my father-in-law,
one of the favorites for his
Sgrandkids is the time Pete
decided to leave home and
"live off the land."
SDepending on the audi-
ence, he amends the story a
larkham bit to avoid some of the
Publisher more telling details, espe-
cially the one about evad-
ing the school truant offi-
cer as the real reason he decided to go
live in the woods.
Pete was 11-years-old at the time
and pretty sure of himself. With
another scalawag from his one-room
school, he managed to hide out from
the truant officer and family for more
than three weeks, foraging for
berries, digging wild onions, and
hunting rabbits and squirrels to feed
two hungry lads.
That early experience stayed with
him and he's still more comfortable in
the woods than just about anyplace
The mental picture we've shared of
a tow-headed boy, bronzed in the
summer sun, with a rope belt and tat-
tered pants riding down the mountain
astride a neighbor's goat has entered
the realm of family lore.
Each year, when we gather, at some
point we'll cajole Pete into reprising
the story. And each year, another gen-
eration of his descendents gets to hear
these and other special stories from
our very own man of the mountain.
Happy Birthday, Pete.

New FKCC chief has ambitious goals


From establishing online
classes including lessons on
Australia's Great Barrier Reef
and Panama's rainforest to
revamping the Florida Keys
Community College Web site,
college President-elect Jill
Landesberg-Boyle has big ideas.
And as she prepares to offi-
cially take her position Aug. 1,
college Board of Trustees mem-
ber Ed Scales moves up the ranks
to chairman, elected by his fellow
trustees June 25. Also, member
Brian Schmitt's term is coming to

to support our new president,"
Scales said. "She's the first new
one in 28 years. With that will
come change."
Gov. Charlie Crist is review-

ing possible appointees to take
Schmitt's place. They are Keys
residents Christine Paul, Tim
Koenig, John Padgett (former
School District superintendent)
and Kim Bassett (Fishermen's
Hospital chief executive officer).
There is no set date for when he
will make his decision.
As for Landesberg-Boyle, she

Florida Keys Community
College officials scrutinized their
recruitment techniques while
mapping out plans for future ini-
tiatives with their new marketing
team June 27.
Steve Kappler and Scott
Linzey from Stamats, a Cedar
Rapids, Iowa, educational con-
sulting firm, told professors and

administrative staff there is room
to play up the "going to school in
paradise" advantage the college
possesses that other schools lack.
College records show enroll-
ment of full-time equivalent stu-
dents for 2005-06 was 775. Three
years earlier, in 2002-03, the
count was 940.
Jill Landesberg-Boyle, Wvho
officially starts as president Aug.
1, has made reversing that decline
a priority.
"There is a tangible degree of
energy about your institution,"
said Linzey, principle consultant
for the company.
"You have an opportunity to
take advantage of your diversity,"
he added. "This is a very diverse
culture that appreciates every-
thing from Cuban to Haitian.
That is, I think, the fabric of who
you are."
He discussed dual enrollment,
asking, "Is a 15-year-old arguably
able to be in the same classes as
our students are?"

need to fill those positions, as
many of the front-line tasks can
be streamlined, she said.
This means no layoffs as well
as no hirings.
Connecting the computers to
one main printer could save about
$7,000, college staff learned. And
the cost of using the computer lab
could be increased, Landesberg-
Boyle said. The current cost is
$20 for four months with unlimit-
ed printing.
Even though there may
increases in the assorted costs,
she said she's focused on updat-
ing the amount of financial aid to
better reflect the high cost of liv-
ing in the Keys.

Linzey doesn't believe such a
program should have an open-door
policy, but that was met with much
disagreement from the audience.
Linzey advised against trying
to sell education as "affordable"
because that "associates itself
with commodity" rather than
"educational value."
The college could improve its
unsophisticated recruiting tactics,
according to Linzey, who called
the college "order-takers" -
simply enrolling students who
seek out the college without tak-
ing it a step further by reaching
out to those who are unaware of
what FKCC can offer.
Landesberg-Boyle noted that
the college is spending $35,000 a
year on distributing bland class
Linzey characterized FKCC's
current recruitment strategy: "We
exist sign up for classes."
"If you want to be a sophisti-
cated institution, you need to
make it look like one," said
Kappler, Stamats' executive
director of consulting.

Construction of the Freeman

It was conceived in the 1990s

It's now at around $13 mil-

Sal Zappulla now estimates the
building will end up costing
upward of $20 million.
Hutton had warned the
County Commission during its
regular June meeting that the
attorneys' offices were unsafe.

3 bid on Pigeon Key ferry

Some still say
Cay Clubs is
being favored

Three companies are vying to
provide temporary ferry service
between Marathon and Pigeon
Key beginning Aug. 1.
Tuesday,.' county officials
opened bids from Cay Clubs
International, Paradise Divers
Inc. and Starfish Swim and
Snorkel Inc. to provide service to
the small historic island while the
old Seven Mile Bridge is
"We're evaluating the bids,
and we'll make a recommenda-
tion" to the County
Commission," Assistant County
Engineer Judy Clarke said.
It's the second time the service
has gone out to bid; the first
round of bids was thrown out by
the county because, County

Engineer David Koppel said,
none complied with all bid.
There was a rumbling of frus-
tration when the first bids were
thrown out; some people accused
the county of throwing them out
to favor Cay Clubs, which had
not submitted a bid.
"I believe there was a lot of
collusion to have them thrown
out in the first place," said Tanya
Purcell, who along with her hus-
band has owned and operated
Starfish Swim and Snorkel for 30
years. "Pigeon Key should pick
up with a local mom and pop,
someone as solid as we've been
over the past 30 years."
Purcell is not the only one.
William Hauck submitted a
bid during the first round and was
unhappy when they were tossed.
He told the County Commission
the move put all of the bidders at
a disadvantage because their cost
estimates had been made public.
Resentment against Cay Clubs

grew out of talk that county
Mayor Mario Di Gennaro had a
preconceived idea of redevelop-
ing Pigeon Key as an attraction
with the help of the company,
which has acquired or taken on
operation of numerous properties
and businesses in the Keys the
past three years.
In April, the company walked
away from a $7.4 million deal
with the School District in which
Cay Clubs had offered to build
affordable housing in Marathon.
The Florida Department of
Transportation has pledged
$750,000 over the next three
years to pay for the ferry service
to and from- Pigeon 'Key.
According to the bid request,
service would commence Aug. 1
and run through June 2008, with
the option to renew for six-month
periods until work on the old
bridge is complete.
The provider needs to be capa-
-ble of carrying up to 22 passen-
gers every 90 minutes daily and
provide extra capacity during
special events on the island.

Storm director's staff revolt widens


Nearly half the staff of the
National Hurricane Center joined
the revolt against Director Bill
Proenza late Thursday, issuing a
statement calling for his immedi-
ate dismissal another blow to
his struggle to keep his job.
"The effective functioning of
the National Hurricane Center is
at stake," said the statement,
signed by seven hurricane fore-
casters and 16 other employees,
including many staff scientists
and Proenza's secretary.
"The undersigned staff of the
National Hurricane Center has
concluded that the center needs a
new director," the manifesto said,
"and with the heart of the hurri-
cane season fast approaching,
urges the Department of
Commerce to make this happen
as quickly as possible."
The dramatic escalation of the
battle and of the turmoil at
the hurricane center came two days
after three senior forecasters told
The Miami Herald that Proenza
should leave and another senior
forecaster criticized Proenza.
They said his public state-
ments about an aging satellite

have undermined confidence in
their forecasts. Others believe
that his frequent clashes with
superiors in Washington have
become a serious distraction as
the hurricane season deepens.
Earlier this week, federal offi-
cials dispatched a special "assess-
ment team" to the hurricane cen-
ter in West Miami-Dade County,
ordering it to conduct an unprece-
dented review of the facility's
leadership and operations.
A spokesman for the National
Weather Service said Thursday
that the team which includes
an attorney who specializes in
personnel matters will return
next week to conduct additional
Proenza, 62, still is supported
by some staff members and a
number of scientific colleagues,
including the director of a key
National Oceanic and Atmo-
spheric Administration research
facility in South Florida.
Proenza was traveling Thurs-
day and could not be reached for
comment, but said earlier this
week that he had no intention of
stepping down from the post,
which he has held for six months.

But the weight of the state-
ment issued Thursday evening -
and the significance attached to
the large and diverse number of
people who signed it cast
deepening doubt on his ability to
retain the post.
Virtually the entire senior staff
endorsed the manifesto, including:
Senior hurricane forecasters
Lixion Avila, James Franklin,
Rick Knabb and Richard Pasch;
hurricane forecasters Eric Blake,
Dan Brown and Michelle
Mainelli; meteorologists Wally
Barnes, Robert Berg, John
Cangialosi, Hugh Cobb, Martin
Nelson, Gladys Rubio, Chris
Sisko and Patricia Wallace;
oceanographer Stephen Baig;
executive officer Ahsha Tribble;
administrative officer Vivian
Jorge; and Proenza's administra-
tive assistant, Evangelina Maruly.
In another development, a
prominent private forecaster
joined the call for Proenza's res-
ignation or ouster.
Jeff Masters, chief meteorolo-
gist for the Weather Under-
ground, which provides forecasts
for hundreds of clients, ques-
tioned the scientific basis of
Proenza's campaign to replace
the aging QuikScat satellite.

Sewer deal on table Tuesday


The Marathon City Council, at
its regularly scheduled meeting
Tuesday, is expected to vote on a
resolution authorizing the con-
struction of areas four and six in
the city's proposed sewer system.
But even at this late stage in
.the proceedings, council remains
divided on its opinions of moving
Councilman Pete Worthington
has been strongly in favor of
moving forward with construct-
ing two of the city's seven sewer
service areas, calling area four a
"no-brainer" because the city will
have $8 million in grant money to
support the project.
"But I wanted to piggyback
area six on top of area four just
for the benefit of the good bid we
have," Worthington said.
"They're talking about doing
stormwater, new roads, having
water reuse that wasn't even a
factor in Little Venice."
Tuesday's resolution says the
contract for sewer and stormwa-
ter collection systems will not
exceed $28,916,180 for both
areas four (Sombrero Beach
Road/U.S. 1 corridor) and six
(Coco Plum Drive/U.S. 1 corri-
The original proposal by Vice
Mayor Marilyn Tempest entailed
directing staff to negotiate a price
combining both areas four and

six. It also established a 180-day
window from the award of a con-
tract allowing the city to back out
of area six construction if more
state funding is not in place.
The city's comprehensive plan
includes a stipulation for the state
to contribute 40 percent of the
overall system's estimated $82
million cost and it has yet to
deliver that money.
Councilman Don Vasil says
without state funding in place,
proceeding with the sewer project
"is going to place an undue hard-
ship on our community."
"If council votes to approve
the resolution on Tuesday, area
four is a done deal," Vasil said,
"and the problem is if I was in
Tallahassee I'd be saying 'You've
just signed up for your own sewer
system so why should we both-
"I want the average person to
know what they're in for," he
continued. "The percentage of
people who want to slow down
before we get a commitment
from the state is overwhelming."
Vasil said that area four alone,
after combining the costs of
storm and wastewater piping, a
treatment plant, engineering and
other costs, will bring the total
cost for area four to more than
$32.5 million.
Worthington said as much as
$5 million has been raised the

past four years through a munici-
pal service tax assessed to city
residents outside of Little Venice,
which has already been sewered.
He said the tax was "generating
engineering and soft costs toward
developing sewers."
Tempest, while adamant about
receiving state funds, said there is
money available through private
foundations the city can apply
"There are billions of dollars
out there for preserving the plan-
et," she said. "So if we could get
some piece of that for sewering,
we don't need a whole lot
A state Department of
Environmental Protection repre-
sentative will meet with city offi-
cials next week to offer assistance
in procuring grant monies.
Tempest has voted in favor of
moving forward so far, but says if
"it were up to me I'd put in an
aerobic system."
Her concern is the state will
not be coming after the city, but
rather individual residents,
should they not meet the state's
2010 mandate to upgrade all sep-
tic tanks and cesspits to advanced
wastewater standards.
"How many people in this
town could afford to do that and
how many even have the space
on their land to do it?" she said.
Tuesday's meeting is at 5:30
p.m. at the Marathon Govern-
ment Center.

puts issue on
October ballot

The residents of Key West
now have a decision to make:
whether to allow construction of
a 135-unit assisted- and inde-
pendent-living facility at the
Truman Waterfront.
Tuesday, the City
Commission passed the second
reading of an ordinance to put
the question on the Oct. 2 ballot
as a binding referendum.
"It will give the opportunity
for something fine and noble for
the elderly community," said
John Dolan-Heitlinger, a consult-
ant on the proposed four-acre
"I'd like to see it all laid out in
its entirety," Commissioner Dan

Kolhage said. "I think our senior
citizens certainly deserve any-
thing we can provide for them."
Those in the audience at the
commission's meeting agreed the
referendum question is well writ-
ten and clearly stated.
If passed, the property would
be leased "to a qualified operator
or management company that
has not yet been selected, for a
period,of 99 years for exclusive
use...," it reads.
The'Assisted Living Care
Coalition has pushed the referen-
dum by holding numerous pre-
sentations for entities such as the
City Commission.
Key West's only current
assisted-living facility is
Bayshore Manor, with 16 beds.
It's owned and operated by
Monroe County.
The Truman facility would be

be more sensible.
He added that Patrick

Hemingway "liked bulls,"

County may adopt noise plan

-Newer aircraft
creating anger

Not everybody knows the
U.S. Navy is a noisy neighbor,
but Monroe County Com-
missioner Dixie Spehar hopes to
establish a system, that would
help future buyers beware.

When the commission meets
July 18 at the Harvey
Government Center, Spehar plans
to bring forward a double propos-
al for the county to adopt the
Navy's Air Installation
Compatible Use Zones, known as
AICUZ, and find a way to let
people know what homes fall
within the high-noise contours.
"I've talked with [County
Property Appraiser] Irvin Higgs,"
Spehar said. "I've asked him to
take the appraiser's Web site a
step further so that we cite clear-
ly when a property is in the
AICUZ. With this, there would
be no way a Realtor could get
around it."
The Navy released its 200-
plus-page AICUZ document in
April. It's a collection of data and
maps showing what noise and
safety impacts surround Naval
Air Station Key West.
The AICUZ recommends the
kinds of land use the county
should allow around the air sta-
tion based upon safety and noise
levels. Because it is a zoning tool,
Navy officials say it's important
for the county to adopt the docu-
County planners have been
working under an older AICUZ.
The new contours have expand-
ed, in part, for the needs of new
aircraft. But adoption of the doc-
ument would really only impact
new development.
For example, it could have an
effect on a proposed six housing
units that King's Pointe Marina
plans to build on the old Hickory
House restaurant on Stock Island,
a parcel of land the company is
buying from the county.

As for existing homes, there's
not a lot that can be done, Navy
officials say.
"One answer is soundproof-
ing," Spehar said. "That's what
we're doing around the Key West
airport. The [Federal Aviation
Administration] has paid quite a
few million dollars to have these
homes soundproofed."
Navy spokesman Jim Brooks
says that if the federal govern-
ment were to make soundproof-
ing money available, it would
likely be through non-Navy
grants. 3But he does not know of
any proposals for such a program.
Some residents living in the
NAS flight patterns are fed up
with the noise, especially since
the Navy has introduced a new F-
18 .which, according to the
AICUZ, emits a lot more noise
than do its predecessors.
The Super Hornets, as they're
called, can emit as much as 117
decibels during practice, nearing
the 120-decibel level where
sound begins to physically hurt.
Paul Caruso lives in Tamarac
Park on Geiger Key, one of the
noisiest neighborhoods around
NAS. His Web site www.stopthe

"We were happy with the
Navy until they start bombarding
us with F-18 Super Hornets,"
Caruso said. "Were trying to get
answers to question that nobody
seems to want to answer."

with Navy officials, according to
Brooks. He recommends visiting

Homeless, Old City Hall not mixing


In Old City Hall Tuesday, the
Key West City Commission
acknowledged a vagrancy prob-
lem surrounding the. Greene
Street building in which they
decide city business.
Commissioners took turns
giving anecdotes of encounters
with aggressive homeless people
scattered outside, some napping

"It's absolutely disgusting,"
Commissioner Dan Kolhage

vagrants in the area who expose

Commissioner Clayton
Lopez said he "observed a per-

tors. I told him not to do that, at
which point he challenged me."
Lopez asked the vagrants to
leave the premises, a request not
fulfilled. He then called the
police to "keep an eye on them."
The discussion spawned from
a comment made by Bahama
Village resident Robert Kelly,
who proposed developing an
ordinance to stop loitering
around the "jewel" of a building.

would keep vagrants away from
the property.
In 2003, the commission
passed a law barring panhan-
dling in some of the city's his-
toric areas due to aggressive
homeless people. But that is not
a sweeping law barring loitering.
"I think it something that we
need to look at," Lopez said,
though he emphasized language
in a potential ordinance would
need to be worded carefully, as
the homeless have rights like
everyone else.
"I just think we need to get it
cleaned up a little," Kolhage
said. "You can't be urinating on
the property and you can't be
intoxicated on the property,"
Stephen Braddock, executive
director of the Florida Keys
Outreach Coalition, which runs
programs for the homeless, said
law enforcement should inter-
vene in such instances.
"Homelessness is not an
excuse for breaking the law," he
said. "A few bad apples create
the bad stereotypes."
"It's always been that way,"
Police Chief Bill Maudlin. "If
they're drinking in public, pan-
handling or loitering, we will
move them along."
Old City Hall belongs to the
state, Mauldin said.
Commissioner Bill Verge,
whose district claims Old City
Hall, agreed the problem is a
particularly tricky one, stating

the American Civil Liberties
Union would deem it unconstitu-
tional to discriminate against the
But Verge says he thinks it
may be possible to designate
areas where no loitering is

allowed, homeless or not. He
also suggested constructing an
aesthetically pleasing wrought
iron fence around the facility.
"It's a constant, ongoing
problem," Verge said. "There is
no easy answer."

Premier sells to Gregos

And cake shop
gets new name;
wine bar opens
Keynoter contributor

Premier Properties of the
Florida Keys, Marathon, was
sold last week to David and
Joanne Grego, owners of Island
Breeze Realty, also of Marathon.
According to David Grego,
the sale will result in the two
businesses combining to create a
new company called Island
Breeze Realty and Rentals,

which will be located in Grego's
current office space at 12699
Overseas Highway.
Grego said he and his wife
have been managing property
through Island Breeze Realty for
more than three years, and they
purchased Premier Properties
because they thought it was "a
good match with where we want
our business to go."
Under the terms of the pur-
chase, the Gregos have taken
over the 27 rental properties that
were previously managed by
Premier Properties. The purchase
did not include the former

Premier Properties building at
9501 Overseas.Highway.

mon topic to discuss the
Drinking bottles of water and
soda out of a shared cooler, they
give their reasons for waiting in
"I don't have an iPod, cam-
era or a cell phone," Harding
says. "This is my way of getting
them all at once."
Gurganus is more hesitant.
"I buy and sell things online.
It'll help me do my job quicker,
and if it doesn't work out, I can
always sell it."
As the day wears on and the
three are joined by more cus-
tomers, they move their folding
chairs to stay in the shade.
Carrie Wolhners, a Marathon
resident, joins the group in con-
"My sons dropped the phone
in Lake Michigan," she says,
holding up a battered cell
phone, its back cover missing
and the battery held on with
tape. "They broke our last two
phones ... they're not touching
this one."
The line grows longer. By.
3:15, there are 15 people by
5:30, there are 50.
Those at the end of the line
worry that there may not be
enough phones to go around.
Other late arrivals don't share
that fear. Steve Lamp, owner of
Dream Catcher Charters in Key
West, has had a steady stream of
people holding his place -
eighth in line.
"They're all captains... I had
to fish today in one of their
places," he says.
Asked whether he'll be buy-
ing the cheaper 4-gigabyte
phone or the upscale 8-gigabyte
model, he replies, "There's no
point in [getting one] unless you
get a big one."
It's a feeling shared by most
people in line. When asked, no
one in line indicates the cheaper
model as their first choice.
As the clock approaches 6,
their are now 60 people and the
excitement mounts.
The final five minutes are
counted down, minute by
minute, out loud. Faces press to
the front windows of the store,
searching for what's taking so

long. When the hour finally
comes, it's almost an anticlimax
- the doors open three minutes
late. Any.thoughts of grumbling
discontentment at that fact dis-
appear in cheers and high-fives
as the front door opens.
One at a time, the first four
customers are led into the store.
The joy at being first in line
soon faded, replaced by exas-
peration at crashing servers and
failing computers. Sales
Manager Gail DeViddio, phone
Sin hand, worked feverishly to
get the computer systems
online. Under the strain of thou-
sands of simultaneous orders
nationwide, .the system simply
couldn't cope.
"I'm too old for this," she
said under her breath before
ordering the sales to proceed
without the sluggish computer
With dozens of people wait-
ing impatiently outside, and
only one person at a time being
admitted, things had to move
At 6:10 p.m., Gurganus
stepped out of the store, phone
held high, to cheers from those
inside and out. Over the next
hour, only four more customers
would get their phones. The sec-
ond hour proved to be more suc-
cessful, and by 8:17, the final
phone of the store's 30-phone
allotment was sold, bringing an
end to the long wait.
"I've waited this long in line
only twice in my life," said one
man in line. "This is just some-
thing you've got to be here for."

Key West Cakes
A Key West cake decorating
shop formerly known as Cakes
by Joey and Paulie has changed
its name to Key West Cakes, and
has also moved to a new location.
Co-owner Joey Bove said the
shop is now open at 920-B
Kennedy Drive at the Kmart/
Albertsons Plaza. He said he and
Paulie (who prefers to use only
his last name) have 35 years of
cake decorating experience
between them, and are hoping to
lure more locals to their new
"About 99 percent of our
orders are from out-of-towners,"
Bove said. "We'd really like to
expand to work more with
local people."
Bove explained that since
many of the ingredients used in
the shop are either imported from
Europe or shipped from the
mainland he prefers to have a
month's advance notice to create
a specialty or wedding cake, but
will fill in with rush orders when
he can.

duo's creations can be viewed at

Point 5
The owner of Nine One Five
restaurant, 915 Duval St., Key
West, has opened an eclectic
wine lounge called Point 5 in his
Victorian building's upper level.
Stuart Kemp said the lounge's
focal point is a glowing, up-lit
bar fashioned from a slab of
white onyx. The walls, ceilings,
and floors are covered in Dade
county pine, and the room is fur-
nished with original 1960's
Italian furniture.
"The furniture is molded plas-
tic ... orange and black. It's very
'Austin Powers'-looking," Kemp
said. "It's playful and fun. People
have been blown away by it."
Kemp said wine connoisseurs
would appreciate Point 5's state-
of-the-art wine dispensing sys-
tem, which uses nitrogen to pres-
surize the wine and prevent dam-

"What a way to end the tour-
nament," Coach Pierce said.
Marathon went 3-4 in the
South Florida's District 8
Tournament for the Age 9-10
Upper Keys coaches Jason
Richards and Joe Catarineau
were happy to see their team
play its best game in the all-star
tournament, despite going 0-7 in
the round-robin.
"We didn't win anything but a
coin toss, but our kids finished
with a great game," Richards
said. "They gave it everything
they had, and learned a lot."
"Marathon got the big hit and
it was a solid hit. It's not so bad
losing like that," Catarineau said.
"We came close but couldn't get
a hit with men on base."
Dylan Beckwith, who led the
Upper Keys offense with a 3-for-
3 game and three runs scored,
reached second in the seventh
but was stranded.

A full house at the Red

worked up a sweat laugh-
ing at the fresh routines of
Eddie Sarfaty's comedy stu-
The recital for 10 stand-up
students held some really funny
moments and everyone did a
decent job so there were none of
the uncomfortable moments that
leave everyone performers
and audience alike squirming.
Comedy routines are the
splintering edge of the precipice.
The common mantra among the
performers was how stressful it
"It was the hardest thing I've
ever done," said Mimi
McDonald, who has carried
scenes in plays that required
pages of dialogue and intense
physical challenges.
Each student mined their
experience for humor they could
distort or go polar-opposite,
including Myra Negron's young
school-age son Cameron. The
youngster was casual and self-
possessed as he started his rou-
tine: "I'm Cameron and I'm an
alcoholic." It was all about exag-
geration and whatever the noun
is for preposterous.
Sarfaty is a New York comic
with "The Today Show" and
Comedy Central on his resume

es, festivals and shows all over
the country. He introduced the

"So Captain, what's our coor-

Oil industry led to steel drum

Sir Cedrick talks
about his musical
roots in Trinidad
L'Attitudes contributor
ew will argue that the
sound of a steel drum
makes perfect background
music for many Florida Keys
events, such as the recent inau-
gural Delta flight to Marathon
Airport. If you think of the Keys
as an extension of the Caribbean
islands, you would expect to find
steel drum players and bands just
about everywhere.
But few musicians know how
to play the unusual instrument,
much less how to make one.
SFortunately we do have a local,
authentic steel drum player who
learned his trade on the island
where it all began. Sir Cedrick
Luces was born on the island of
Trinidad, where the steel drum,
or pan, was invented in the late
1930s and later became the offi-
cial musical instrument of the
Republic of Trinidad and
Many fans are surprised to
learn that the instrument is such
a relatively recent invention.
Luces grew up during the
island's early steel pan era, and
as a teenager he toured with
Trinidad's famous Belmont Steel
Band. In his 20s, he came to the
United States and played with a
legendary jazz pan player,
Othello Mollinex. He learned
how to create impromptu
melodies in his head and trans-
form them into steel drum
music. He became more versa-
tile, adapting his playing tech-
niques to blend jazz, calypso,
and reggae into a smooth, origi-
nal sound.
"Oil was discovered in
Trinidad during the 1920s," he
said. "There were a lot of empty
oil drums around and some local
boys started banging on them,
keeping time to the music. Then
they bent the drum tops so that
there were two sections for mak-
ing notes a high one and a
low one kind of a 'du-dup,
du-dup' sound for the rhythm.
Other notes were made with bot-
tles, spoons whatever you
could find."
"Then someone made a drum
top with four notes instead of
two. That led to eight, then 16,

Cay, across the pool from the Cantina Restaurant.

and so on. The first steel drums
were convex in shape, bending
outward. Later they took on a
concave shape, making them
easier to play."
In the 1930s, the instrument
evolved into a full scale of notes,
and grew in popularity.
"There was a big Navy base
in Trinidad," Luces said, "and
following World War II, a lot of
warships stopped there. There is
a famous Time magazine photo
showing a local steel drum band
celebrating the end of the war."
But early on, the new instru-
ment acquired a negative stigma.
"The steel drum was consid-
ered a poor man's piano, played
by street performers," he
recalled. "My aunt called it the
devil's music. When I brought
one home she told me to 'get it
out of my house!' I got a whip-
ping for that!"
"So I took the drum to school
and my music teacher let me
keep it there. We were hoping to
have our steel drum band play at
a school festival, but the other
kids got cold feet and dropped
out. The teacher said that I
would have to go onstage and do
a solo performance. I was real
nervous, but I did it anyway. I
played the theme from 'The

Sound of Music' and everyone
loved it."
Today the steel drum's nega-
tive connotation is long gone.
There is even a graduate pro-
gram at West Virginia University
led by artist-in-residence Ellie
Mannette, who is known as the
principal innovator and designer
of the modem steel drum. His
steel band instruments are on
display at the Smithsonian and
Metropolitan museums. At
WVU, Manette coordinates the
steel band studies, which teach
all aspects of the steel drum art
form. More than a dozen other
schools, including the University
of Florida, have incorporated the
steel drum into their music pro-
The steel drum is the only
new family of acoustic instru-
ments to have been invented in
the past 100 years. It consists of
a circular, steel playing surface
divided into smaller sections or
notes, each of which is acousti-
cally isolated and tuned to a dif-
ferent pitch. The instrument is
played with a pair of rubber-
tipped mallets, or sticks.
Musicians skilled in the art of
playing the steel pan are called
A steel pan orchestra, or

band, consists of a family of
steel pans encompassing a range
of around six octaves.
Sometimes a rhythm section
(commonly called the "engine
room") consists of a variety of
other percussion instruments to
regulate the tempo of the music.
Luces brought his steel drums
to the Keys in 1990 and quickly
got hired to play at the Holiday
Isle and Hawk's Cay resorts,
where he still plays today.
In 1991, he won Miami's
Calypso King award with his
original composition "If You
Drink My Wine." That hit led to
an album, "Ready To Party,"
which combines some of his
own creations with other reggae
and calypso hits. Since then, he
has produced and recorded sev-
"eral CDs: "Steel Drum Concerts,
Vol. 1 and 2," "The Best of Sir
Cedrick," "Welcome to the
Florida Keys," and "Steel Band
Music: Old-Time Melodies." He
records multiple tracks to sound
like a full steel drum band.
Luces has played his steel
drums all over the east coast, the
Caribbean, and South America.
He tirelessly promotes steel
drum music through special per-

Reef July 14.
A troupe of scuba-diving
Elvis imitators "performs"

concert, which draws as many
as 600 divers and snorkelers
each year to explore the col-

The sub-sea songfest is at
Looe Key Reef, an area of the
Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary approximately six
miles south of-Big Pine Key.
Set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.,
the event is staged by WCNK
98.7 Conch FM. Music is
broadcast underwater via
Lubell Laboratory speakers
suspended beneath boats posi-
tioned at the reef, and the
playlist typically ranges from
humpback whale song to the
Beatles' "Octopus Garden"
and Jimmy Buffett's "Fins."
As well as rocking to the
beat of the aquatic anthems,
participating divers and
snorkelers can explore an
underwater art gallery during
the 2006 songfest. Themed
"Music and Art in the Key of

Luxembourg for the Abbaye
de Munster reception on July
Before moving to the Keys
in 1996, Motches, who paints
under the name M. G.
Motches, taught watercolors
and oils for more than 20
years. Once here, she became
a professional artist and quick-
ly gained attention for her
tropical landscapes, especially
palm trees. In those paintings,
she uses vibrant colors and
-'veeping strokes to catch the
organic flow of the trees.
In 2002, she decided that
she was ready to open up into
a more non-representational:
vein and began studies with
abstract expressionist Joachim
Loeber, who was a protEgE of
Edvard Munch.
"He taught me to really
loosen up," she said.
After studying with Loeber
for three years, she went to
"vCork under the tutelage of
Matt Lamb, who has seven
studios around the world and

completes 1,000 paintings a
year. Through his inspiration,
Motches set a goal for herself
to do 300 works per year.
"By producing more work,
my work gets better quicker,"
she said. "I don't feel that any
one is too important. I focus
on the flow."
Lamb also exposed her to
the European market, so when
she received the ArtReach
grant, he was able to connect
her to the appropriate people.
The ArtReach award is an
audience development grant,
which funds artists in extend-
ing their typical audience and
reaching out to a new popula-
tion. Motches noted that she
hoped by exposing her art to
the European market it would
bring her to another level.
Her new works combine
contrasting metallic and dark
colors in thick layers, which
give each painting an other-
worldly glow. Mostly figura-
tive, images emerge that could
be horses with wings, butter-
flies, angels, dancers or what-
ever the viewer interprets them
to be.
"I think there are different
realms and different planes of
existence, many of which we
don't know about," she said.
"I think that there are other
beings and things out there
that our brains are not aware
of, and sometimes strange
things come out."
She also works with col-
lage, which adds a different
kind of challenge. She
explained that working with
images that already have a tra-
ditional meaning can be diffi-
cult to incorporate into an
abstract painting.
"People would say, 'That's
a chair, and that doesn't
belong there.' I try to loosen
myself up and alter those pre-
conceived notions."
Motches said she believes
all art is spiritual and puts a.
lot of emotion into her work
both anger at the many
injustices in the world and the
hope that increased spirituality
will create global change.
Many of her figures reflect
that hope in the graceful
movements .of reaching
upwards towards something

popular palm tree works at the
Susie Starfish Gallery in Key
West, Motches has not yet
shown her latest body of work.
She is concerned that working
with a gallery will influence
the direction of her work.
"I really wanted to do the
art for itself and not for any-
body else," she said. "I think
after I come back from
Europe, I'll be ready to
approach galleries about show-
ing this work."
Motches is very involved in
the community-serving on the
Tourist Development Council's
Cultural Advisory Board, the
Florida Keys Council for the
Arts Advisory Board and with
other organizations. She has
also been the recipient of two
other ArtReach grants as well
as two grants from the Anne
McKee.Artists Fund.
Her works have been fea-
tured on the set of the "Real
World" series on MTV as well
as many galleries and muse-
ums throughout the Keys
including the Key West
Museum of Art and History.
She has also been selected to
participate in the Art in Public
Places program for the
Marathon Government Center,
the Marathon airport and the
Gato building.
