The Monroe County Com-
mission heard from department


heads during a budget workshop
Thursday that a 5 percent roll-

some severe impacts.
Community Service Director

Little support
countywide for
more TDC money

snissen@keynoter.com

Hotel tax dollars will not
sink the USS Hoyt Vandenberg,
at least not yet.
Five "no"s later, Monroe
County's bill stands unmoved at
$2 million.
The five District Advisory


Councils to the Tourist
Development Council that rec-
ommend such allocations all
voted against giving the county
funding.
The DACs consider applica-
tions for allocating one-third of
the three-penny-per-dollar hotel
bed tax to various tourism proj-
ects in the five different districts.
The TDC will now consider
the DAC recommendations.

DELTA / From 1

Kent Landers from the Delta
Corporate Communications
office said the length of the run-
way prevents the airline from uti-
lizing its planes to full capacity.
He said the airline can fill only
35 of 50 total seats before weight
restrictions hamper the plane's
ability to take off.
"The more weight an aircraft
has, the more [runway] it needs
to lift it off the ground," Horton
said. "During hot, humid months,
even more runway is required, or
you carry less weight, meaning
less baggage and passengers."
Key West International
Airport has a shorter-runway than
Marathon, but Delta uses a 70-
seat jet with higher operating
capabilities than those used in
Marathon.
"That plane was chosen based
on a lower demand profile in
terms of the number of cus-
tomers," Landers said of Delta's
50-seat aircraft used in
Marathon. "This is a highly sea-
sonal market and that made [it]
difficult."
Landers said Delta had origi-
nally begun service using a 40-
seat CRJ-200, but switched to the
50-seat Freedom ERJ since it had
a higher payload capacity and in


the hopes it could improve sum-
mer route performance.
The airline was limited to sell-
ing 22 to 24 outbound seats from
Marathon with the 40-seat plane
and 35 to 38 with the 50-seat
Freedom jet.
Flights originating from
Atlanta can be booked at full
capacity, as runway length is not
an issue.
Delta agreed to a one-year
contract to provide service to
Marathon. It officially runs from
Nov. 16, 2006, until Nov. 15,
2007. Service was delayed for a
time when the federal Trans-
portation Security Administration
refused to provide the airport
with screeners.
The airport eventually con-
tracted with a private screening
company to handle those respon-
sibilities.
To ensure the service, Monroe
County secured more than $1.1
million in guaranteed revenue
through community donations
and a Small Community Air
Service Development grant from
the U.S. Department of
Transportation.
The money was scheduled to
be paid to Delta at the end of its
contract.
Horton said "not one cent of
the grant money has been paid"
so far, and that a county attorney


is exploring the legality of dis-
continuing service.
Former County Com-
missioner David Rice was
responsible for raising the com-
munity dollars on behalf of the"
Florida Keys Airport Initiative.
He said the situation is disap-
pointing, but not unexpected.
"When we started this process
we did not think it would be with-
out problems," Rice said.
"They're saying they have prob-
lems with the runway ... well, it
didn't get any shorter since" serv-
ice began.
Horton said he has already
been in contact with Gulfstream
International Airlines and that it
has expressed interest in provid-
ing service.
In a statement to Horton,
Gulfstream President David
Hackett said, "Gulfstream is
planning to serve Marathon.
They just need a little time to
determine when that will be and
we are talking to them about
accelerating that decision-mak-
ing process."
According to its statement,
Delta will offer customers
booked on Marathon flights after.
the date of discontinuation alter-
native transportation choices or
refunds. For more information,
call Delta Reservations at (800)
221-1212.


Spehar, Murphy side with DACs


'VANDENBERG' / From 1

TDC recommendations then go
to the County Commission.
"The county came to the
DACs asking for money, not
based on how much benefit each
district would receive but based
on how much they had to allo-
cate," TDC Director Harold
Wheeler said.
The districts outside Key West
felt strongly that sinking a ship
near Key West would not "bring
them a good return on invest-
ment." The Key West DAC felt
the $1 million it already pledged
was enough, he said.
Taking the full TDC money
for projects in a given year, or
another plan considered that
pledged dollars over time, would
largely shut out other county
projects like beach cleanup, Key
West DAC Chairman Jon Allen
said.


Turning the 520-foot former
military ship into an artificial reef
7 miles off Key West will inject
diving-tourist dollars into the
Keys' wide economy and reduce
environmental pressure on natu-
ral reefs, project coordinators
said Wednesday.
TDC-funded studies confirm
that natural reefs would see siz-
able relief, but that Key West
would only see marginal tourism
gains.
Time has not been kind to the
diving industry. According to the
TDC data, the amount of tourists
diving declined sharply the past-
decade.
The Vandenberg project aims
to sink the vessel -in water 144
feet deep. If sunk correctly, the
ship would create an artificial
reef reaching nearly 40-foot
depths at its highest points.
The county already commit-
ted $2 million to the project, with
Key West matching a $1.25 mil-


lion federal grant, bringing the
funding total to more than $5.5
million, Wheeler said.
The county saw the project as
a tourist boon, and decided the
TDC is a logical source for recu-
perating its investment, said
Project Manager Dawn Acker,
who represented the county
administrator's office in front of
the DACs.
The county will uphold its
commitment, Acker said after
being turned down at each DAC.
The county followed the tradi-
tional route for requesting funds,
though it might not have had to.
The County Commission could
take the money since it approves
the TDC's budget each year.
Commissioners Dixie Spehar
and Sylvia Murphy both said tak-
ing the money is possible, but
both object to the idea.
Murphy credited the TDC for
the original investments.

And sheriff
putting 4 boats
into dry dock
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

A mandatory tax rollback
enacted by the Florida
Legislature is going to cost jobs,
County Administrator Tom Willi
told the Monroe County
Commission during a budgeting
session Thursday.
"We're talking somewhere
between 80 to .100 people,"
Willi said. "That's 20 percent of
our workforce that is going to
lose their jobs. And the remain-
ing 80 percent are going to have
to pick up the work with no
additional compensation."
The county has been operat-
ing under a hiring freeze since
January when County Clerk
Danny Kolhage warned Willi
the county was facing a budget
shortfall for the 2006-07 fiscal
year.
Willi said the county will try
to cut costs by leaving vacant
positions unfilled, but also
hopes to offer a.buyout program
to encourage early retirement.
Based upon a buyout pro-

Burglary victim
catches suspect

A Key Largo man was arrest-
ed for burglary Tuesday, caught
by the homeowner as he tried to
flee, according to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office.
Shane Earp, 33, is charged
with burglary, theft and posses-
sion of burglary tools.
Deputies say the victim
returned to his Pompano Lane
home shortly after midnight to
discover it burglarized and the
two men who burglarized it in his
yard. He was able to detain Earp
but the other man fled.
The stolen items included a
computer, an iPod and a digital
camera.
Investigators are continuing
to investigate.


gram the Sheriff's Office has
been using, Willi said the coun-
ty would offer to pay three.
months of salary along with
cash for vacation days and some
sick time.
Buyouts as well as layoffs
- will be handled on a case-by-
case basis, Willi said.
The county has 12 jobs post-
ed on its Web site ranging from
county fire chief to a temporary
administrative assistant. And
some positions, including two
recently vacated jobs in the
Technical Services Division,
have not even been posted yet.
"We have to look at them one
by one," Willi told the Keynoter
Friday. "Some are critical posi-
tions that you simply cannot do
without."
Even with incentives for
early retirement, Willi said
morale would suffer as the coun-
ty "cannibalizes" its workforce.
"We're calculating losing an
additional 15 percent," he said.
"People will be seeking employ-
ment elsewhere because no one
wants to face the uncertainty."
"I'm going to assume that all
of the people employed by
Monroe County are good
employees," Commissioner
Sylvia Murphy said. "They all
received merit raises last year,
so I'm assuming they're worth
keeping."
Sheriff Rick Roth said he's
started making cuts now "so it
will be easier on folks."
Roth is doing away with 18
certified law enforcement offi-
cers and six other employees, a
move that he said pared more
than $2 million out of his pro-
posed 2007-08 budget, bringing
it down to $41.million.
Roth said the cuts mean there
will be no water patrols except
in Islamorada and Marathon,
where the cities pay for the serv-
ice. Four boats will be dry-
docked, though Roth said he'll
keep them insured and regis-
tered so his office can respond in
emergencies.
The Legislature has mandat-
ed that all local governments
roll back property taxes to
anywhere from 3 percent to
7 percent below their 2006-07
budgets.

way the county can opt out of the
required rollback is by a four-

The controversial state bill is
aimed at saving homeowners

Monroe County could lose its

Delta leaves Marathon

looking like jilted lover

On the morning of Feb. 15, 1995, the first commercial flight
took off from the newly finished terminal at Florida Keys
Marathon Airport.
There was no celebration.
We had three national carriers USAir, American Eagle and
Gulfstream and 12 flights daily to and from Marathon.
Perhaps we should have learned our lesson.
Fast-forward to Feb. 15, 2007, and the celebration mounted for
Delta's first Atlanta-Marathon flight looked like the second
coming complete with Marathon fire trucks pumping a
watery airborne salute as the plane taxied toward the terminal.
The crowds were so big they spilled out of the terminal onto
the restricted waiting area.
It was quite a happy day.
That makes Delta's Thursday announcement about suspending
service all the more bitter.
For two straight years, a hard-working committee of county
officials and local business leaders worked to secure federal
money from the Small Community Air Service Program.
Former County Commissioner David Rice chaired the effort
that raised $250,000 from local businesses to help supplement
the $750,000 in federal guarantees.
U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen worked her magic in
Washington, D.C. when the Transportation Security
Administration balked at providing the required airport screen-
ers at the 11th hour, delaying the startup originally planned for
Nov. 1, 2006.
Monroe County Airports Director Peter Horton found a private
screening service option that could overcome TSA's objections.
And all that hard work brought the Feb. 15, 2007, launch of
regular jet service from Marathon to Atlanta.
Initial reports from Delta during the first three months were all
positive.
Passenger load factors in March and April were higher than
their original projections.
Everyone knew the summer would be tough, but that's why
the federal guarantee program was created.
Yet Delta never bothered to even trigger that safety cushion.
Instead, it says the 5,000-foot runway in Marathon is too lim-
iting. Mind you, it flies a larger plane in and out of Key West
International Airport -.which has a shorter runway at 4,800
feet.
Delta says it might come back in season.
One thing is certain: the town won't be rolling out the red car-
pet or striking up the band the next time. And that's what really
hurts.
All that hard work and good intentions for what?
To stand jilted at the runway as Delta waves goodbye.

Keys Opinion


Delta isn't providing the service to support it


EDITOR:
Recently my wife and I attended a family
reunion in Tennessee and even though after-
checking airfares and being able to save more
than $300 if I drove to Fort Lauderdale, we
decided to fly out of Marathon. Wrong deci-
sion.
The flight we were to board in Marathon
was right on time. We had two hours in Atlanta
to catch the plane to Knoxville, so everything
looked great. Getting ready to.board, we are
told there will be about an hour delay because
they need to get a mechanic to look at some
mechanical problem. Still plenty of time in
Atlanta to catch next flight.
We finally board and taxi to the runway
after an hour-and-a-half delay. Still OK in
Atlanta.
After sitting at the end of the runway for
another half hour, we are told that we didn't
have clearance from air traffic control to take
off. Now we're a little worried about the
Atlanta connection.
Now in Atlanta, we rush to the gate and see
that the plane is still at the gate but we cannot
board because they had closed the door. I have

been on other flights before where they would
delay departure knowing that some passengers
are in the terminal rushing to catch the flight,
so why this was not done for us I do not know.
They knew we were there but wouldn't even
hold 15 minutes.
We were unable to get another flight to
Knoxville until 8 p.m., and to add insult to


injury, that flight was an hour and a half late
taking off. Arriving in Knoxville at 11 p.m.
was too late to drive where family was staying,
so we had to stay at the airport hotel. We get a
rental car the next morning and drive to our
destination and had a great time with family.
Next chapter, trip home.
We have to be at Knoxville 7 a.m. in order
to catch the 9:45 a.m. flight to Marathon
through Atlanta. The flight from Knoxville was
fine but when we arrive at the gate, the
Marathon flight is rescheduled to 1:57 p.m. I
asked what the problem was and the gate atten-
dant said the problem was on the Marathon
end, which proves they don't have a clue
because how could there be a problem in
Marathon when the flight originates in Atlanta
every day and goes back every day?
We finally board and the flight is uneventful
until we are getting ready to land in Marathon,
when we are diverted to Miami because of
weather over the Marathon airport. We sat at
the gate one hour in Miami arid were unable to
leave the plane, and then to my dismay I was
told there was no cold beer.
I had hoped that this adventure was a rare
occurrence but after talking to other people,
that doesn't seem to be the case.
Good luck, Delta. Hello, Fort Lauderdale.

Editor's note: Delta is suspending its
Marathon service effective Sept. 3.


Arts program enriches community


EDITOR:
This year's Independence Day parade in
Marathon, which was sponsored by the
Rotary, included a procession over an hour of
beautiful floats, music arid patriotic flag wav-
ing.
For the third year in a row, the best-in-
parade trophy was awarded to the summer
Cultural American Music Program, or CAMP,
band on board the Marathon Lions Club float,
which was a replica of the Spanish galleon
Atocha, which first ran aground off the shore
of what is now called Marathon.
The difference between the two ships was
only in the types of treasure on board. The
original carried a fortune in gold, silver and
jewels, whereas the parade float carried a
treasure of musical talent from the Cultural
American Music Program. These hard-work-
ing students have spent the past month honing
their music skills and having fun with both
new and old friends in this program.
Many local organizations like the Marathon
Lions Club as well as local business have sup-
ported this cultural program, making it one of
America's top summer instrumental, vocal
and theatrical programs. Although it goes
without saying, this highly polished gem
would not have reached this brilliance without
Tina and Christina Belotti, who have headed
up the program from the start.
It is nice to know that in today's high-pres-


sure technical education, there is still room
for our youth to pursue the arts and make
their lives more meaningful through them.
This program and others like it would not sur-
vive without the community support and we
as a city, state and country would be the los-
ers.
God bless America and the arts.
Glen Martin
Florida Keys Zone chairman
Marathon Lions Club

Keys Opinion


Old-timer should get some respect


EDITOR:
My husband and I have been vis-
iting the Keys for 40 years. We now
winter on our trawler in the area.
Six years ago, we had the pleasure
of meeting a man named Capt. Jack.
He lives on his 27-foot sailboat
Fantasy in the basin next to Publix.
It turns out that back in the 1950s,
Jack was one of the first to run a
dive boat in the Keys.
He found and mapped out many
of the live reefs for others to enjoy
and when he saw the reefs dying, he
tried to tell folks what was going on
but they didn't pay attention to his
warnings. Too bad.
Now years later, Jack is in his
80s, healthy enough and living alone
on his boat, getting by on a meager
income. The problem is the new
owners of the old Sombrero Resort
and Lighthouse Marina are raising
his dockage to a rate that will prohib-
it him from living there. He has con-
templated living on "the hook" in the


harbor.
Living on the hook is hard enough
for the most avid sailor, let alone
someone in their 80s. Jack is such a
gentleman and an asset to the basin
where he lives. The new owners
should want to keep him there if only
just to keep an eye on the boats and
personal belongings of the visiting
boaters.
We should all live our lives as
well as Jack has. He is always help-
ful and ready to lend a hand to oth-
ers, honest as the day is long. His
stories of the old Keys should be.
documented for others to enjoy.
It is my hope that the folks that
read this will contact Cay Clubs and
ask them to re-think Capt. Jack's
dockage fees and let him live out his
days aboard his beloved Fantasy tied
to the dock, close to the store and
with access to amenities. Isn't there
always an exception to the rule?

'Gator killers knew better


EDITOR:-
In the July 4 edition, an article
states that defense attorney Jason
Smith, for Jordan Milo and Timothy
Goll, stated that the "Florida Keys
boys" thought it was a "fishing vio-
lation". as to how they lured and
killed the alligator on Big Pine Key
last year. Since when do Florida
Keys boys go fishing for alligators?
I.haven't seen any tournaments
posted. I haven't heard of any
record-holding anglers bragging
about a big reptile (not a fish) that
they shot the eyes out of and bludg-
eoned with a bat (not a baited hook)
lately. Since when does an angler


need a lookout like the.un-named
underage driver and Theo Derleth?
Perhaps because these Florida Keys
boys knew they were doing some-
thing wrong?
These Florida Keys boys are no
less guilty. They should be pun-
ished for their poor judgment, as
well. These Florida Keys boys do
need to be made an example of; this
is completely unacceptable behav-
ior that should be corrected now.
They broke not only our society's
laws, but humanitarian ones as
well.

New Hawk's Cay can be green leader


EDITOR:
I was delighted to read about the
plans to totally revamp Hawk's Cay
Resort on Duck Key. The Keys need
a first-class hotel complex and these
plans sound like the new owners are
headed in the right direction.
As Hawk's Cay and its architec-
tural firm HKS Inc. develop their
plans, I hope they'll seriously consid-
er our environment. It's more urgent
now than ever that hotels, restaurants
and businesses help conserve our
natural resources while ensuring that
the activities of their customers do
not further damage our planet.
I hope Hawk's Cay will find ways
to cut carbon emissions from the cur-
rent resort through the wise use of
energy. This might include installing
CFL light bulbs in all the rooms, pur-
chasing only Energy Star appliances,
working with sustainable building


materials, installing low-flow show-
ers and toilets, relying upon natural
light rather than artificial illumina-
tion, and recycling everything that
can't be reused. If the resort is truly
concerned the owners should also
consider solar hot water and at least
some solar-generated electricity and
even building to LEED guidelines.
As the governor's recent energy
initiative illustrates, we can no longer
take our use of energy and natural
resources for granted. Some of the
upscale resorts around the world
understand this and have taken the
proper steps and have, therefore,
enhanced their business. I sincerely
hope that Hawk's Cay will also and
become a model for other properties
in the Keys. We need that kind of
leadership.

L arry Benvenuti, a Marathon

Cuba several times over the
years, meeting new people each time
he goes.
As he landed this April at Jose
Marti International Airport in
Havana, he was met by his driver,
Allejandro Munoz Rodriguez, who
has been Benvenuti's tour guide of
sorts for 12 years now. However,
their path does not lead to typical hot

people's homes and farms.

"Strait Divide" is a package of stories that shows readers contrasts and
parallels between the Florida Keys and their neighboring islands that
make up the country of Cuba.
The Keynoter went to Cuba at the end of April for a two-week tour
through the country with a guide who offered glimpses of Cuban life off
the beaten path, from Havana to the Bay of Pigs to Cienfuegos to Cayo
Largo and more.
This is the first installment of stories and photos about a variety of
issues both locales deal with: fisheries, water quality and tourism; as well
as slices of life from several cities and rural areas in Cuba.
Subsequent stories can be found in today's L'Attitudes inside the
Keynoter, tomorrow's Keys Sunday and Wednesday's Keynoter.
Additional photos can be viewed at www.keynoter.com in the "Photo
Gallery" section.


There, Benvenuti
paid a visit to Juana
Maria Aleman. Her
son, Lazaro, lives in
Marathon and works
at Crane Point
Hammock, which is
a stone's throw from
Benvenuti's home.


Benvenuti and Lazaro speak
almost daily, and while Juana was
happy to hear that her son was doing
well, her smiles quickly turned to
tears as she said she prays every day
that she will see her son again before
she dies.
As Benvenuti offered encouraging
words of support, Lazaro's sister,
Barbara, a spry blonde with two
young sons, Jose Livan and little
Lazaro, busied themselves with the
after-school routine around the house.
A group of guys in the street were
making a commotion as they tried to
jumpstart a car. With another car
parked bumper to bumper, a quick
look under the hood showed a plas-


tic jug in front of the radiator was the
car's gas tank, and the motors and
wiring had been reconfigured time
and time again. Unsuccessful, they
resorted to pushing the car up a hill
to push-start it as young women and
children looked on.
Across the street, a crumbling
building bore a graffiti message,
"Vivan los..." and "CDR," which
likely translates to "Long live the
Comite para la Defensa de la
Revolucion [the Committee for the
Defense of the Revolution].
The onlookers cheered as the
engine finally turned over and the
young Cubans were on their way.
Benvenuti left the Aleman home
for other visits throughout Havana
where he vicariously connected
Cubans to Americans in Marathon,
Key West, Miami, Hollywood...

'Resolver, finding solutions

With ingenuity, teamwork and when possible, humor

True to Cuban tenacity and ingenuity, the old classic got

At each stop, a peek into peo-
ple's homes and lives offers
new insight into the Cuban
mantra: resolver.
Resolver describes many aspects
of life in Cuba. Christina Garcia
tries to describe the
idea in her book, f .
"Simple Life."
"Resolver, to "-.
resolve, is probably
the most commonly
used verb in the lan-
guage on the
island," she writes.
"'Resolver' can mean resuscitating a
twenty-year-old Russian Lada for a
ride to the beach or tracking down a
single out-of-season sweet potato
for a dessert offering to Yemaya,
goddess of the seas ... resolverr'
means to survive, to overcome all
obstacles with inventiveness, spon-
taneity, and most important,
humor."
In a small apartment building in


a poor district where the gate is
painted in the symbol of Santeria -
an eyeball with a tongue and a knife
two sisters explained their
resolver: They teach English illegally
to make money.
Though they have little food to
feed themselves, they served fresh
cheese pastries and fruit smoothies
for brunch with
1rsl4e* in guests.
-. "Our neighbor is
: an'illegal' pastry
maker," they
laughed.
i.-. j,..- Cages of birds
lined the adjacent
wall outside.
"Our other neighbor raises and
sells birds," they said.
Rows of handmade pens held
finches and bluebirds, hopping from
rung to rung.
The sisters reminisced about
growing up in the Midwest before
returning to Cuba with their mother
to tend to their ailing grandmother.
Returning to America -they found,
became impossible.


Hitchin'a ride
In Cuba, "your car is your broth-
er's car." Motorcyclists stopping at
lights will often find themselves
with a passenger before taking off
when it turns green.
In fact, in the spirit of socialism,
picking up hitchhikers is required.
And the drivers, most in cars that
predate the 1970s, are proud of their
wheels.
Pioneer stereos are installed in
glove compartments. Neon lights
accessorize the interior roofs and
undercarriages. Fire extinguishers
are installed on the driver's side
door just in case the old classic
with "inventive" repairs starts to
throw sparks.
According to a study conducted
by the World Bank, there are about
32 cars for every 1,000 people in
Cuba. That ratio has remained
steady since 1958, a year before the
revolution. By contrast, in the U.S.,
more than 80 percent of the popula-
tion owns a vehicle.
For tourists, it's completely safe
to "thumb it" (although it's more of


-~ I


a waving motion with two fingers)
but it's protocol to offer the driver a
few bucks for gas and the trouble.

Keeping house
Throughout Cuba, people are
allowed to rent up to two rooms of
their homes to tourists. The cost is
generally around $35 a night, and
often includes a light breakfast and
coffee.
At one such casa particular, a nice

home near Marina Hemingway with
a pool, seawall and two gregarious
dogs, the common task of cutting
the lawn proved a shining example
of resolver.
What resembled a homemade
push-mower frame had been
mounted on four wheels and
topped with a small motor to power
the blade. From it, a long extension
cord ran to an outlet inside the
house.


The motor? It was from an old
washing machine.
And it worked like a charm, so
long as the operator remembered to
frequently shift the cord to keep it
away from the blade.

dents. But for a few, it seems fate
smiles upon them.
Lazaro Rodriguez Aleman, 58, has
been working at Crane Point
Hammock for seven years now. He
arrived in Marathon with his family
in 1999 after winning the immigra-
tion lottery.
His first few attempts to leave
Cuba, illegally on a boat, were
thwarted by Cuban authorities. He
said he spent a year in a Pina Del Rio
prison where his diet consisted most-
ly of undercooked yucca.
His life in the Keys is very different
from the one he left. In Cuba, where
he was a grocery manager, he kept
track of government rations, saw the
quantity and quality of food fluctuate
with the economy, and witnessed
resolver often, he said people trad-
ing rations for cigarettes or money.
"My family, maybe first year, sec-
ond year in the U.S., I no like it," he
explained. "No English. Now my
family speaks English, my family's
happy in my house; it's good."
Getting frustrated with trying to
explain himself in English, Lazaro
called over a co-worker to translate.
"He says he's grateful for the U.S.
because what he's been able to
achieve here he wouldn't have been
able to do there," said Marlin
Canates, who is from Nicaragua.
Lazaro looked at the photos of his


mother that Benvenuti brought to the
hammock.
"She's skinny," he said, his brow
furrowed.
He explained, again through a
translator, how he had heard she fell
and broke her collarbone.
"It's going to be hard to get back
to normal," he said. "No leche. N9
calcium. There, the health care is free,
but no vitamins."
Asked about his green and yellow "
beaded bracelet, a common trinket
associated with the religion Santeria,
he reflected on his faith.
"No. 1 is life. Life is good; my
work is good," he said. "If there's no
God, there's nothing.
"Here, I get a lot of help from
Americans. The way my life is going,
it's because of good friends in
America to help me and my family,
like John Lee Duran at Key Colony."
How did Lazaro feel to see photos
of his mother?
"Not good," he said. "I'm sad for her
because she's not getting good help."
Benvenuti later said he encoun-
tered an uncanny coincidence.
"The same day we heard his story
on his mother's broken collarbone, I
received a care package for Cuba from
a fellow humanitarian, which con-
tained a big bottle of calcium tablets
and other medicines," Benvenuti said.
"I brought them over to Lazaro to
mail to his mother. Like he said, with-
out God there is nothing."

Education is a high priority in Cuba, where social standing plays no fac-
tor in quality of education. Children are bused to and from school, no mat-
ter how far out in rural countryside they live. Uniforms are mandatory, and
many schools have a strong emphasis on the performing arts. In almost
every classroom, photos of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara grace the wall
and statues of Jose Marti are reverently placed on bookshelves. Like the
Keys, kids attend classes from about 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. They eat affordable
lunches at school, take sack lunches or, if nearby, walk home to eat there.

Saunders: Fast track sewers


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


State Rep. Ron Saunders says
the first step toward getting
more than $500 million in sewer
money for the Keys is to tag a
single local government entity to
coordinate sewer projects and
plan the most cost-effective
approach for meeting a state
deadline for sewer installation.
Saunders got approval this
week from his fellow House
members for what he calls an
interim project that sets a fast
track to establish the cost and
priorities of sewering communi-
ties throughout the Keys.
"This will make it easier to
do a bond issue," Saunders told
the Keynoter Wednesday as he
drove to Tallahassee. "We're
trying to emphasize the fact that
the Keys are an Area of Critical
[State] Concern, which means
we're special so we deserve spe-
cial funding."


According to the project
timeline, local officials will
meet by Aug. 31 to determine
which entity would take the
lead. By the end of December,
that entity would be expected to
submit a report to the
Legislature that would clearly
define the needs and costs of all
wastewater projects in the Keys.
"We need to get the best
numbers we can as far as what
we need to complete these
wastewater projects," Saunders
said.
Saunders conducted a "sewer
summit" in March. Officials
from the county and Keys
municipalities each submitted a
dollar figure they said would
complete their sewer projects.
The breakdown of the $532
million is:
+ Unincorporated Monroe
County, $169.5 million.
Key Largo, $157 million.


Islamorada, $112 million.
Marathon $82 million.
+ Layton, $5.7 million.
Key West, $5.4 million
Key Colony Beach,
$491,000.
Saunders said the report to
the Legislature would prioritize
the projects as well as give an
update on the progress of proj-
ects underway.
At the end of the regular leg-
islative session in May,
Saunders introduced the idea of
using state bond money for local
sewers.
"We're under a state mandate
to get these completed by 2010,"
he said. "The state set the stan-
dard for us, we're hoping the
state can help us reach that goal
by bonding this money."
Saunders acknowledged the
state has already provided $48.8
million to Keys sewers since
2002, but says a state bond issue
would allow the projects to be
completed quickly.


Mini 'cane plane returning to Keys


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Can a remote control plane
stop a hurricane?
No, but NASA and National
Oceanic Atmospheric
Administration hope for more
luck this year, anyway.
Last year, NOAA, NASA and
AAI Corp. of Baltimore brought
a joint project involving an
unmanned automatic vehicle
down to Key West in hopes of
expanding on research of hurri-
canes over the Gulf of Mexico.
The Aerosonde Flight Project
was introduced during hurricane
season, but the device never got
to test its wings, as the season
was quiet.
NASA Project Manager Peter
Turlington calls it luck, and
hopes for a repeat this year -
despite the plane collecting dust.
"We think we are deterrent
now," he said. "If we set up, it
just keeps the hurricane away."
It weighs about 28 pounds and
boasts a 9-foot wingspan and 245
cc fuel-injected engine.
"We flew about 10 hours,
using 1.7 gallons of gas" during
2005's Hurricane Ophelia in
North Carolina, said NOAA
Project Manager Joe Cione, who
works in the Miami Hurricane


Research Division.
According to Cione, the
Aerosonde is designed to fly as
low as 500 to 800 feet, a height
that would be too dangerous for
manned aircraft to fly. The low-
est they fly, Cione said, is 5,000
feet which is rare.
"It's important scientifically
to get down there," he said. "We
have a much better way of find-
ing what the airspeed is."
He was referring to GPS
Dropwindsonde, which is a
device attached to the Aerosonde
that measures wind speed, and
wind and water temperature.
Typically, they dropped
through hurricanes, offering only
"a really quick slice of what's
going on," Cione said. With the
device attached to the drone, it's
like recording a "movie" of infor-
mation.
According to climatologic
predictions based on previous
storms, Key West had a 1.4 per-
cent chance of getting hit last
year, Cione said.
This year's prediction: 70 per-
cent.
The Aerosonde will move to
Key West Aug. 15, and will wait
for action at Naval Air Station
Key West until October.


The benefits go beyond
research, according to Cione and
Turlington. It will also help in
operations, as the project man-
agers will be able to relay infor-
mation directly to forecasters.
Turlington works at the
NASA Wallops Facility in
Virginia.
"We have a test range there
and we've been testing these
things for several years now," he
said, adding that the long-time
desire to find a takeoff point in
South Florida brought them to
Key West.
The plane can operate for 15
to 20 hours, and is placed on the
roof of a sport utility vehicle for
take off. The vehicle must reach
about 60 mph before it takes off.
The drone's route is computed
inside it before launching, and it
returns back to its operators after
the flight.
But Cione said he is able to
control it from his computer in
Miami in mid-flight to direct it to
any part of the storm they wish to
check out.
A "chase plane," a small plane
that will be piloted by Turlington,
is needed to get the drone all of
the way into the hurricane.
Turlington said the drones are
often used for military surveil-
lance.

Sewer plan


is backed up


Council delays
decision on
spending money
By RYAN McCARTHY
name@keynoter.com

Marathon residents came out
of the woodwork at Tuesday's
regularly scheduled City Council
meeting to protest a proposed res-
olution authorizing the city to
spend nearly $29 million for the
construction of areas four and six
of the proposed sewer project.
The mood was at times con-
tentious, but after numerous
speakers and a lengthy discus-
sion, council continued the reso-
lution until a July 25 special
meeting at the Monroe County
Sheriff's office airplane hangar in
Marathon.
Staff will present revised
sewer-assessment figures at that
meeting, and council members
signaled they thought it best to
abstain from voting until resi-
dents are made aware of what
final costs will be.
"We need to get the informa-
tion out there so people can
understand it and be able to help
us with the good fight," Mayor
Chris Bull said.
Citizens pleaded with council
regarding the cost and lack of state
and federal funding for the project.
"Nobody in this room doesn't
want a sewer," Realtor Morgan
Hill said. "What we don't want is
to go broke doing it."
"You cannot spend the monies
you're discussing without fund-
ing," local business owner Dick
Ramsay said. "You have the time
to sit back and to think, to digest
the information and make sure
costs really are what they are."
Ramsay caused a stir when he
challenged the three senior coun-
cil members to move their elec-
tion dates up and "see if the peo-
ple believe in you or not."
However, some citizens did
speak in favor of moving forward
with the project.
"We have less than 36 months
to meet the deadline set for us by
the Department of Environmental
Protection," Fred Endemann
said. "The future looks grim if
you try and stall this project."
"The cost is high but the


longer we wait, the more expen-
sive it's going to be," said Key
West Planning Director Gail
Kenson, who owns a home in
Marathon. "We're going to have
to find other funding mechanisms
and they are out there."
DEP consulting firm represen-
tative Steve Lienhart spoke about
potential repercussions for not
adhering to the state mandate to
comply with advanced waste-
water standards by 2010. He is
working with city officials to
obtain grant money to help fund
the sewer project.
Lienhart said fines could be as
much as $1,000 per day or resi-
dents can be forced to vacate
their homes. He also noted that
other communities in Florida are
paying "much higher numbers"
for their sewer projects.
Vice Mayor Marilyn Tempest
said she's in favor of moving for-
ward with the project, but advo-
cated dedicating city infrastruc-
ture funds to the sewer project so
residents' costs can be offset.
"I don't think we have a
choice but to do sewers,"
Tempest said, "and it's now or
later at a greater cost than now."
Councilman Pete Worthington
agreed with Tempest, saying if
the project is delayed, the $2.3
million discount staff negotiated
for areas four (Sombrero Beach
Road/U.S. 1 corridor) and six
(Coco Plum Drive/U.S. 1 corri-
dor) "could go away and be an
additional 10 percent on top."
"It's not going to get any
cheaper," Worthington said.
"Let's look at what we can
accomplish with what we have."
Councilmen Mike Cinque and
Don Vasil continued to oppose
moving forward. Cinque pointed
out that in addition to their
assessments, residents will be
forced to pay from $5,000 to
$10,000 to have their lateral
hookups done.
Vasil said when combining the
Cost of stormwater and waste-
water piping, a treatment plant,
engineering and other expenses,
area four alone will have a $32.5
million price tag.
City Finance Director Peter
Rosasco noted council has until
Aug. 14 to award the contract.

Big Pine firm likely for Pigeon Key ferry


County staff
recommends
Paradise Divers
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Com-
mission on Wednesday will likely
name a company to provide ferry
service to historic when it meets
in regular session in Key West.
"Paradise Divers is the appar-
ent low bidder," Assistant County
Engineer Judy Clarke said.
"We're still evaluating the pro-


posals. When that's complete
we'll make a recommendation"
to the commission.
Three companies submitted
bids to run a temporary ferry to
the island: Paradise Divers of Big
Pine Key, Cay Clubs Resort and
Marinas and.Starfish Swim and
Snorkel Inc.
"All the bidders are local,"'
Clarke said, "and they've all indi-
cated they can get started right
away."
She said it's a complex pro-
posal because in addition to being
ready to roll Aug. 1, the selected

company must be able to make
scheduled daily runs to the island
as well as have the resources to
ferry large groups of people and
supplies.
The Florida Department of
Transportation is ready to close
down the old Seven Mile Bridge,
which is the only road to Pigeon
Key. DOT says the deteriorating
old bridge isn't safe.
In September, the agency
committed to provide $750,000
over three years for ferry service
while the bridge is under recon-
struction.
Pigeon Key housed workers
constructing Flagler's Florida
East Coast Railway in the early
1900s and is on the National
Register of Historic Places.
This is the second round of


bids after the first five bids were
thrown out in March because
they did not fully comply with the
bid request, according to County
Engineer David Koppel. In
Marathon, the move generated
rumors that county officials want-
ed to award the bid to Cay Clubs.
The company did not submit a
bid the first time around.
"The Pigeon Key Foundation
is very involved in this process,"
Clarke said, "and we're fine-tun-
ing it to their needs. We're trying
to replace a very broad service
with scheduled service limited by
pricing."
When. the County
Commission convenes at 9 a.m.
at the Harvey Government
Center, it will also address the
following:


Two development freezes.
One moratorium up for public
hearing would stop for a year the

A new contract for county

existing county contract expired
in April. Under terms of the pro-
posed contract, Coleman would

Water restrictions relax


Rain has helped,
but Okeechobee
still very low
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Go ahead, wash the car when-
ever you want.
An above-average rainy sea-
son, combined with historic
water-conservation measures
throughout South Florida, have.
battled the 2007 drought to stand-
still.
Mandatory water-use restric-
tions were relaxed but not lifted
entirely by the South Florida
Water Management District on
Wednesday. ,
Landscape irrigation remains
limited to morning hours, 4 a.m.
to 8 a.m., twice a week.
All other residential water-use
restrictions including limits on
when cars and boats may be
washed have been lifted for
the area that includes Monroe and
Miami-Dade counties.
"These modified restrictions
may only represent a temporary
reprieve," Eric Buermann, chair-
man of the water district's gov-
erning board, cautioned in a state-
ment.
Rainfall over South Florida
for the last five weeks has been
about 20 percent above normal,
raising groundwater levels and
helping Lake Okeechobee water


levels rise after reaching a record
low of 8.8 feet this summer.
Lake Okeechobee, the pri-
mary water-storage area for all
South Florida, was at 9.1 feet this
week, still about four feet below
normal levels and considered
"critically dry."
"Water managers have stored
more than 2.2 billion gallons of
water in the regional system in
less than two months," according
to a district report. "Based on cur-
rent water elevations and recov-
ered storage in the Water
Conservation Areas, managers
have determined there is no dan-
ger of water stages dropping to
unsuitable levels for the duration
of the wet season."
Limits on residential and busi-
ness irrigation could become a
year-round fact of life for South
Florida. The idea is being studied
by water-management staff.
"People in the Keys responded
very well to unprecedented water
restrictions," said Cecilia Weaver,
the district's staff representative
in-Monroe County. "I think the
public in the Keys generally is
very receptive to the idea of mak-
ing water conservation a way of
life here."
Only about a dozen water-use
violation notices have. been
issued by Monroe County and
local municipalities during the
mandatory restrictions imposed
in April.
"There really have not been


very many at all," said Weaver,
who compiles a weekly report for
the water district.
Only two citations were
reported last week, both involv-
ing automated sprinkler systems
in Marathon.
"Storms have been knocking
out the power, which throws the
[automatic] timers off," said
Connie Faast, clerk for the
Marathon Code Enforcement
Board. "That's the biggest prob-
lem. Other than that, there have
been no real problems."
Keys residents, along with all
South Florida, also were told to
limit vehicle washing to morning
or evening twice a week, and to
shorten the rinse-down for boats
after a saltwater trip. That rule
was dropped Wednesday.
"Our water managers are
working diligently to assess the
long-term water demands of the
population...and prepare for
worst-case scenarios that still
may arise during the next dry sea-
son," said 'water-management
district executive director Carol
Ann Wehle.
Under Modified Phase II
restrictions for Monroe County,
homes, businesses and govem-
ment facilities with addresses that
end in an odd number may water
Wednesday and Saturdays from
4 a.m. to 8 a.m.
Homes, businesses and gov-
ernment facilities with even-
number addresses may water
Thursday and Sundays from 4
a.m. to 8 a.m.

Quay getting wrecking ball

By RYAN McCARTHY
name@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
decided enough was enough
already at Tuesday's regularly
scheduled meeting when it direct-
ed staff to proceed with tearing
down the Quay, a defunct restau-
rant at mile marker 54.
The former restaurant and
accompanying shops have been
in disrepair since Hurricane
Wilma in 2005.
City Planning Director Fred
Gross said the city has the right to
give notice to the property own-
ers and tear down any unsafe
structure.
"We'll knock it down and put
a lien on the property for whatev-
er it costs to knock it down and
take it away," Gross told the
Keynoter. "It's not going to cost


l M A I : M2 Z
the city, it's going to cost the
estate."
Council members' patience
had worn thin with the estate of
former owner Konstantinos
"Gus" Boulis after they suppos-
edly delayed the inevitable for
several months.
"They give you a lot of lip
service and then things don't get
done," Gross said of the estate.
"They have really been taking
advantage."
Councilman Mike Cinque, a
self-proclaimed property-rights
advocate, was adamant at
Tuesday's meeting the building
be torn down.
"It's been an eyesore and I
know the city has bent over back-
wards" trying to accommodate
the estate, Cinque told the


Red Cross building

might be sold


Keynoter. "Unfortunately, they're
just dragging their feet."
Mayor Chris Bull echoed
Cinque's sentiments, saying the
city has given the estate multiple
opportunities to address the situa-
tion.
"It was unsafe, there was mold
and broken glass... Kids were
playing there," Bull told the
Keynoter. "It posed a safety haz-
ard and we'll be glad to see it go."
The 19,000-square-foot prop-
erty has also become a popular
fishing and sunbathing destina-
tion among locals.
Deputy City Manager C.J.
Geotis said at Tuesday's meeting
the estate had promised to obtain
a demolition permit by last
Monday and by. last Friday begin
the process of tearing the build-
ing down. They failed to do so.
Geotis told the Keynoter the
demolition should be complete
within 30 days.

The future of a building was
the centerpiece of American Red
Cross activities in the Upper
Keys for decades will be debated
at an open meeting Sunday.
The Tavernier Community
Association hosts top officials of
the Red Cross' Greater Miami
and the Keys chapter at the asso-
ciation's regular monthly meet-
ing at 1 p.m. Sunday at the
Tavernier Masonic Lodge build-
ing on Tavemier Street.
Sam Tidwell, chief executive
of the chapter, is scheduled to
speak.
"This is not a fundraising
function," said TCA President
Jerry Wilkinson, urging local res-
idents to attend.
The building at mile marker
94 bayside has been closed for
three years after mold was dis-
covered. Upper Keys operations
of the Red Cross now are run
from a nearby office.
Previously the Red Cross build-
ing housed the agency's Upper
Keys headquarters and served as a
meeting site and educational cen-
ter for local volunteers.
Chapter leaders have suggest-
ed the building and property be
sold to fund operations.

"Members of the Upper Keys
community need to take a stand if
they are interested in the level of
Red Cross services," Wilkinson
said. "Failure to repair the local
structure will not affect basic
American Red Cross chapter
services, but could affect extend-
ed services, the viability of mis-
sions and initiatives."
Repair costs have been esti-
mated at $300,000.
Local residents who were
active in an Upper Keys chapter
of the Red Cross before a 1992
merger with the Miami-based
chapter point the finger at region-
al officials, saying they neglected
the structure while sending
money raised locally elsewhere.
"I haven't made a decision,"
Tidwell told the Upper Keys
Reporter. "I've been in this
organization for over 28 years
and this is the toughest.building
decision that I've faced because
the land is so valuable in the
Keys, and there is a potentially
large amount of money we can
get for the sale of it."
Proceeds from the sale could
be used to enhance local opera-
tions, he said.
The Masonic Lodge is located
on the bayside, behind Froggy's
Fitness.

Village cutting more


Fire department,
parks, council
all slash money
By ERIN EHRLICH
eehrlich@keysreporter.com

The Islamorada Village
Council is asking departments
to cut more of the already
slimmed-down general fund
budget for the 2007-08 fiscal
year.
The proposed general-fund
budget is $10,516,857 about
6 percent less than the current
$11,226,882.
Due to. property tax reform
passed by the Legislature in
June, the maximum tax rate the
village can levy decreased from
$1.95 to $1.68531 per every
$1,000 in taxable property.
That will result in a reduc-
tion of property taxes to the vil-
lage by about $584,000.
To make up for the loss in
tax revenue, user fees will be
increased and expenditures will
be significantly cut in order to
balance the budget, village
officials said at a Wednesday
budget workshop.
The hardest hit in the pro-
posed budget was felt by the
Parks and Recreation
Department, which cut its
budget by 9 percent. Major cuts
include eliminating the dive
program and janitorial services.
John Sutter, parks and recre-
ation director, also said he
wants to find another way to
fund Fourth. of July fireworks.
Eliminating that from his budg-


et, he said, would save
$20,000.
"I think we can still do [fire-
works], but to find funds else-
where," Sutter said, clarifying
that he'd like to get donations
and sponsorships from local
businesses to cover the cost.
Councilman Don Achenberg
said at the budget meeting that
he would discourage cutting
more programs from parks and
recreation in order to lower the
budget.
"You can't put a dollar value
on enjoyment," he said.
Another considerable cut
came from the Fire and
Emergency Management
Department, which reduced its
budget by more than $100,000.
Islamorada Fire Chief
William Wagner III said none
of his budget cuts would affect
public service, but if it were cut
much more, he would have to
cut an employee, which in turn
could result in the closing of a
fire station.
A minimum of two firefight-


ers is required to be in a station
at all times, and at least four
firefighters have to be at the
scene of a fire two inside the
building and two for backup,
he said.
"We're at the baseline mini-
mum for staffing levels,"
Wagner said. "I'm scared to
death every day ... knowing
they're doing it with only two
guys."
Council members agreed to
take a monthly $100 pay cut in
order to lower the FICA, or
Social Security, payments and
Medicare payments from their
budget. They will now receive
a $900 monthly stipend.
Most departments have been
asked by the Village Council to
make several other cuts to
"sharpen the pencil."
Further discussion on the
general fund budget, as well as
special revenue and capital
improvement budgets will take
place on Monday. The work-
shop will be at 3 p.m. in the
Islamorada Fire Station at mile
marker 81.8.

Blue-crab program
is now under way

A new program designed to
prevent overcapitalization of the
commercial blue-crab -industry
by managing the number of par-
ticipants in the fishery and the
number of traps they can use is
under way.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
established the Blue Crab Effort
Management Program, and the
Legislature and Gov. Charlie
Crist have approved provisions
to implement the program.
The Alabama Jack's area of
Card Sound Road in North Key
Largo is the main blue-crabbing
area in the Florida Keys.
The program establishes sep-
arate endorsements for the hard
crab and soft "peeler" crab fish-
eries, and blue-crab traps must
be marked with trap tags issued
by the FWC to be legal.
There are different numbers
requirements for the hard-crab
endorsement and soft-crab
endorsement, but crab endorse-
ments are transferable, however


leasing or renting endorsements,
tags or traps is not allowed.
For specifics of the program,
go to www.myfwc.com.

230 grams of pot
found after stop

Key West police officers
found 230 grams of marijuana
on a man after he initially
refused to pull over for an
expired tag violation, according
to department spokeswoman
Christie Phillips.
Mark Anthony Anderson, 42,
of Key West is charged with
possession of marijuana, with
intent to distribute within 1,000
feet of a school, fleeing and
attempting to elude a police offi-
cer, driving with a suspended
license with knowledge and
resisting arrest without violence
for the incident, which occurred
Thursday around 2 p.m. on
North Roosevelt Boulevard.
Phillips said the marijuana
was packaged in separate plastic
bags for sale and distribution
purposes.

New businesses and those
redeveloping in Islamorada may
have to build workforce housing.
The Islamorada Village
Council Thursday night unani-
mously passed the first reading of
an ordinance requiring affordable
housing be provided for every
new development or redevelop-
ment in proportion to how many
jobs are generated from the con-
struction.
The ordinance states in part,
"there is a housing affordability
problem in the village." In 2005,
the median price of a house in
Islamorada was $776,200. In
Florida, it was $235,100.
Deputy Village Manager Ed


Koconis said provisions of the
ordinance are intended to
increase the supply of affordable
housing for 70 percent of the
local workforce.
"Maintenance of a balanced
and sustainable local economy
requires the availability of a sta-
ble and qualified workforce,"
according to the ordinance.
In 2000, the tourist and sec-
ond-home market significantly
increased, upping property values
and construction costs. Because
these markets encompass upper-
income individuals and families,
private housing has become too
expensive for many village resi-
dents and workers especially
with the median household


Sodden water users facing
steep outlays for extra use found
reprieve Friday, as surcharges on
large consumers evaporated.
The Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority board met in emer-
gency session to cut the current
30 percent surcharge on users
who exceed certain quotas to 15
percent for June and eliminate the
fee for use in July.
The gallons that bring about
the surcharge depend on meter
size, but homeowners typically
can use 6,000 gallons before pay-
ing extra.
"People will see significant
savings on their bills," utility
spokeswoman Colleen Tagle
said. "It's not that we're discour-
aging savings, but we haven't
seen the decline in rates that we
expected and we don't want to
collect rates that aren't necessari-
ly needed."
Those billed the added fee can
expect a credit on their next state-
ment.
Small lodging such as guest-
houses found restrictions espe-
cially tight.
Often such businesses employ
the smallest meters, similar to
apartments, but might have as
many as 25 separate rooms, said
Jodi Weinhofer, president of the
Lodging Association of the
Florida Keys and Key West.
Meter size determines how much
water use is allowed before sur-


charges are levied during
droughts.
"We understand the goal is to
promote conservation, but the
surcharges had an unintended
consequence," Tagle said. But
she credited the FKAA for
responding to her group's
request.
FKAA directors cited lodging
owners' concerns as a leading
reason for rescinding the sur-
charges until new rates can be
considered.
The surcharges were raised
and lowered based on water-use
restrictions, most of which were
lifted on Wednesday by the South
Florida Water Management
District.
FKAA Executive Director
James Reynolds said the sur-
charge didn't bring about the
conservation levels the group
hoped for. The Keys already use
less water per person than other
south Florida areas, and extra
conservation is harder to achieve
board members said.
The board will consider elimi-
nating the automatic surcharges
at its regular monthly meetings.
The extra cost was an attempt to
stabilize income for the FKAA,
which loses money as homes and
business conserve in the face of
drought, Deputy Executive
Director Kerry Shelby said.
Income reports show the
Authority didn't need June's sur-
charges to meet revenue goals.


income estimated at about
$58,400, Koconis said.
Koconis said this ordinance is
necessary to sustain the economy
of Islamorada. He also said he
would be hard pressed to make
any exceptions to the rule for new
developments, even if an appli-
cant says his project won't make
much of an impact to the econo-
my, won't generate new jobs or
doesn't have room to build any
affordable housing.
"I'm not going to make it easy
on someone," Koconis said. "It.
will be a burden on the applicant
to prove they can't fit the hous-
ing."
The number of required units
depends on the size and nature of
the development.
He said on-site construction is
preferred, but if logistics prevent
housing from being built, he
might ask the applicant to build
off-site or pay a penalty for not
building the units, known as an
in-lieu fee.
The in-lieu fee Marathon
has such a set-up also would
depend on the number of units
that could be constructed.
Council members decided
these affordable homes should be


a minimum of 500 square feet
and have one bedroom, one bath-
room, a kitchen and a living
space.
Councilman Chris Sante said
he doesn't think anything smaller
would suffice because the idea is
to make sure employees have an


affordable place that isn't unde-
sirable.
"It's a give and take," Sante
said.
If passed after the second
.reading July 26, the ordinance
would be effective immediately.

Renee Anderson built her
backyard pond for goldfish, not
Gambian giant pouch rats.
Unfortunately for the Grassy
Key resident, the rats are attract-
ed to what serves as an otherwise
scarce source of fresh water on
the island.
Only weeks after the conclu-
sion of a six-week program
aimed at eradicating the invasive
rodents, Anderson continues to
see them on her property and has
caught four in that time using
Havahart traps.
"After the bait stations were
out, I didn't see any for quite a
while," Anderson said. "We're
not catching them as often so it
must have done something, but
they're still around."
U.S. Department of
Agriculture workers laid 1,000
PVC-tube stations pre-baited
with peanut butter before being
ladefi with a zinc-phosphide toxi-
cant as part of the program to
eliminate the rats. Many of the
traps were left in place in the
event they needed to be reused.

Scott Hardin, exotic-species
coordinator with the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, said he expected
some of the rats might survive the
first phase of the program.
Hardin said he believes what
remains of the rodents' popula-
tion is concentrated in two small
areas of the island: the east end of
Grassy Key on a small block
between Morton and Ferreire'
streets and Avocado and Lime
avenues, and at the west end of
Morton Street where no homes
are located.


"They're almost certainly liv-
ing in the hammock area and
moving into the residents' area at
night," Hardin said. "We're going
to try and get them en route."
Much like the initial phase of
the program, the areas will be
monitored using remote night-
vision cameras and lined with
bait stations. The stations were
pre-baited Wednesday and had
toxicant added today.
Hardin said flyers will be
posted indicating to residents that
baiting is being done in their area.

Symroski mulls running


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Ty Symroski, Key West's
planning director for eight years,
has picked up the necessary
paperwork to qualify to run for
the Utility Board of Key West in
Group 1, which currently has
City Commissioner Harry Bethel
and Realtor Charles Lee as candi-
dates.
And two more candidates are
gearing up for the race against
incumbent Mayor Morgan
McPherson and former Mayor
Jimmy Weekley, retiree Sloan
Bashinsky and boat mechanic
J.R. "George" Claing.
Symroski, who has a master's
degree in regional planning from

the University of North Carolina,
now runs a private practice for
land-use planning.
"I have to decide over the


weekend," he said. "But I'm def-
initely interested."
As for Bashinsky, some candi-
dates for city offices make
bumper stickers, do surveys or
hire campaign managers. But he
says all he needs are his thoughts.
Throughout the years, he's run
for County Commission twice
and Key West mayor once, never
a serious threat to his opponents.
Why is he running now?
"Besides the fact I was told in
dreams to do it," he said, "I love
Key West. It's the most unusual
city I've ever seen."
The other latest mayoral can-
didate, Claing, 79, wants to "let
freedom ring" in Key West.
The former Connecticut resi-
dent now lives in the Garrison
Bight. He's retired from the steel
fabrication business.

City gets big cash


boost from builder


$180K going for
marine-related
repairs, gear
By RYAN McCARTHY
name@keynoter.com

It's not often someone
walks into your office and
offers to give you $180,000
without wanting something in
return.
Such was the case when
Marlin Bay Yacht Club devel-
oper Thad Rutherford recently
visited with Marathon
Planning Director Fred Gross
and Deputy City Manager C.J.
Geotis.
"When we went forward
with combining [the
Gulfstream Mobile Home Park
and City Fish Market], there
was a mitigation with the state


of Florida," Rutherford said.
"We had to donate something
to net public benefit for public
access to waterways."
The mitigation came about
as a result of the development
converting what was deemed
public boat dockage into a pri-
vate marina along Florida Bay
at the end of 39th Street.
But rather than donating the
total sum of $750,000 in miti-
gation to the state, Rutherford
lobbied for a portion of the
funds to be distributed at the
local level.
"It's much better for it to go
here than anywhere else,"
Rutherford said. "We fought
for it to stay in Marathon."
"It is important for people
to know that the agreement for
the funds for public access
came after the development

Consumers warned
about identity theft

First State Bank of the
Florida Keys is advising
all Keys residents to be
at are of a telephone-based
scam being used to commit
identity theft.
The bank reports that
scammers call potential
victims, claiming to be
from the local court sys-
tem. and indicate that the
resident has failed to
report for jury duty and a
warrant has been issued
for their arrest.
When the potential ic-
tim says the\ never
received a jury duty notifi-
cation the scammer then
asks for confidential infor-
mation for "verification
purposes." Specifically.
the scammer asks for a
Social Security number,
date of birth and some-
times credit card numbers
or other private informa-
tion.
Since the potential vic-
tim is caught off-guard and
is upset at the prospect of
a %\arrant being issued for
their arrest, they are much
less likely to be vigilant
about protecting their con-
fidenrial information, said
the bank's report.
After the information is
given to the caller, the
caller can then commit
fraud using the victim's
private information.

Manny & Isa's reopening Faux PaS.


Beloved Islamorada
restaurant returns
after 2005 closing
By CLAUDIA MILLER
Keynoter Contributor

In early January 2005, the
well-loved Manny & Isa's
Kitchen closed its doors, ending
another chapter in the culinary
history of Islamorada. Known for
its good food at reasonable
prices, welcoming atmosphere
and award-winning Key lime
pies, most people believed the
restaurant could never be
replaced. Sometime this month,
Mike Forster, the owner of
Mangrove Mike's in Islamorada,
will reopen the culinary gem with
the help of the original owner,


Manny Oritz, thus keeping the
new restaurant true to the history
of the old.
For .Forster, the decision to
reopen the restaurant "bearing
their names was a combination of
his business sense and his love of
Islamorada history. He was look-
ing to open another restaurant,
and he did not want to create
what he called a cookie-cutter
spot that would only appeal to
tourists. Keeping the Mangrove
Mike's casual atmosphere and
menu in mind, he wanted to cre-
ate another place for business
year-round.
"Instead of trying something
else that isn't proven, I wanted to
bring back some of the history,"
he said. "Also, there was a niche
market here that wasn't being


filled. Cuban food is affordable,
and that's what I'm good at -
affordable food."
The whole idea of resurrecting
the restaurant began with the Key
lime pies, which were so well-
known that the Food Channel
came to film Manny and Isa mak-
ing the confections. Made with
genuine Key limes that Manny
grew himself, the tart yellow fill-
ing was topped with sweet
meringue,
After they closed the restau-
rant, Forster offered to buy the pie
recipe so he could keep the tradi-
tion alive. What started out as a
deal about pies grew into a deal
about the whole menu. Forster
bought the Manny & Isa's name
as well as all of the recipes. He
has agreed to pay them a royalty

Suit: Xbox 360 scratches discs


Broward man
sues Microsoft
over damage
By JESSICA MINTZ
Associated Press

A Florida man who claims
Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360
video game system scratches
game disks has sued the company.
Jorge Brouwer of Broward


County is seeking class-action
status for his suit against the
Redmond-based software maker.
In a Monday filing in U.S.
District Court for the Southern
District in Fort Lauderdale,
Brouwer claimed the game con-
soles are "negligently designed

and manufactured." The lawsuit
argues Microsoft has received
thousands of complaints but has
not replaced all games scratched


by the consoles.
Brouwer said his Xbox 360
scratched two of his games,
"Gears of War" and "Madden
NFL 07," and that Microsoft
offered to replace the games for a
$20 fee. He is seeking more than
$5 million in damages, according
to the court filing.
Last week, Microsoft extended
the warranty for the Xbox 360
consoles that completely stop

the belief behind the open-

"'It's a dog's world. We
just live in it," said owner
Scott Smith.
It's a motto that inspired
Smith, who graduated from

2000, to open Faux Paw s
in late January.
The store features top of

drinking fountain specially
designed to reduce bladder
infections in animals, as
well as pet-sized furniture.
Additionally, Faux Paws
is becoming known for its
unique bakery, which is
geared toward creating
specialty items using glu-
cosamine, antioxidants,

the next five years, and Manny
has signed on to check in month-
ly on the quality of the food.
Forster is also bringing back
two of the Ortizes' long-time
employees, one who worked for
them for 26 years and another
who worked for them for 16
years. "I'm trying to get people to
validate that it's Manny & Isa's,
not Mangrove Mike's," Forster
said. The new restaurant will be
in the building of former Squid
Row (mile marker 81.9) in
Islamorada. It will be a signifi-
cantly larger space with seating
for 180, while the original restau-
rant could accommodate only 30
people. Part of that space is a side
room that seats 75 that can be
closed off for meeting facilities or
opened as part of the restaurant.
The d6cor will be simple with
Spanish tiles and murals of the
Cuban coastline. Forster has gath-
ered a collection of historical pic-


tures of Manny & Isa's, which
will be blown up and displayed
on the walls. Forster said the
overall feel will be non-sophisti-
cated, bright and clean.
He promised that the food will
remain faithful to the old recipes.
"People can't be coming in here


looking for no trans fat," he said.
"A lot of it's cooked with lard,
and it will remain being cooked
with lard as long as it's legal. I'm
not changing it for the times. I'm
not changing it for nutrition. I
want to honor what Manny did
for many, many years."

the company calls "general hard-
ware failure." That is a separate
issue from scratched disks, but
the lawsuit included the informa-
tion, saying Microsoft "is well
aware that the Xbox 360 console
has been defective since its intro-
duction to the marketplace."
In an e-mailed statement,
Microsoft spokesman Jack Evans
said, "Out of the millions of

Evans did not clarify the num-
ber of reports that would qualify
as "widespread," but said the
company will examine consoles
suspected of disk scratching and
fix them when necessary.
The lawsuit also cites investi-
gations of similar consumer com-
plaints conducted by a Dutch tel-
evision program, which found
that one of nine consoles tested

'Papa' comes home again


Hemingway Days
back in Key West
in all its glory
American literary giant
Ernest Hemingway lived in Key
West throughout the 1930s, writ-
ing some of his most enduring
works and embracing the unpre-
tentious island atmosphere. The
legacy of the writer whose prose
earned Pulitzer and Nobel prizes
is to be recognized Tuesday
through July 17 during the annu-
al Hemingway Days celebration.
During his Key West resi-
dence, Hemingway wrote in a
small studio behind his 907
Whitehead St. home and spent
his leisure hours deep-sea fish-
ing and socializing with local
and literary cohorts. Fans of his
writing and exuberant lifestyle
are to come together for
Hemingway Days.
Events are to include a look-
alike contest for stocky white-
bearded Hemingway look-
alikes, readings and book sign-
ings by nationally acclaimed
authors, an awards ceremony
that caps a leading American lit-
erary competition, a commemo-
ration of the 108th anniversary
of Hemingway's July 21 birth, a
one-man play exploring the leg-
endary author's life and motiva-
tions, a museum exhibit of rare
Hemingway memorabilia, a
zany Running of the Bulls and a
three-day marlin tournament
recalling Hemingway's devotion
to the deep-sea sport.
The festival's best-known lit-
erary event is the awards recep-
tion for the annual Lorian
Hemingway Short Story
Competition. The Key West-
based fiction competition, creat-
ed in 1981 to recognize the tal-
ents of emerging writers, is now
internationally renowned for its
support of quality writing.
Lorian Hemingway, a
Pulitzer Prize-nominated author
and Ernest Hemingway's grand-
daughter, is to announce the vic-
torious writers, introduce the
winning story and read from her
current work at a literary recep-
tion July 20. The event is to take
place at 8 p.m. at Casa Antigua,
314 Simonton St., where Ernest
Hemingway stayed during his
first visit to Key West in 1928.


Aficionados of fine writing
also can hear authors' reminis-
cences and readings during
"Voices, Places, Inspirations,"
hosted by Lorian Hemingway
and set for 8 to 10 p.m.
Wednesday at Wyland Galleries
of Key West, 623 Duval St.
Participants are to include
celebrated Florida novelist Tom
Corcoran, whose Alex Rutledge
mysteries paint an evocative and
sometimes rueful picture of con-
temporary Key West.
Those whose resemblance to
Hemingway is more visual than
literary vie for the coveted title
of Papa each year during Sloppy
Joe's Hemingway Look-Alike
Contest. Past contest winners
choose the 2007 winner from as
many as 150 white-bearded
Hemingway hopefuls who come
from around the U.S. and even
international locales to compete.
The competition is held at
Sloppy Joe's, 201 Duval St.,
Hemingway's favorite Key West
watering hole. Preliminary
rounds are scheduled at 6:30
p.m. July 19 and 20, with the
selection of the proud Papa set
for the night of July 21 on the
anniversary of Hemingway's
birth.

Festival attendees can learn
more about Hemingway when
actor and playwright Brian
Gordon Sinclair performs as the
author in a theatrical storytelling
evening titled "Hemingway's
Havana." Each year for the past
four, Sinclair has introduced a
one-man play from his five-part
"Hemingway On Stage" series
during the festival. The final
segment of "Hemingway On
Stage" is to debut in Key West
next year.
Like the critically acclaimed
series, "Hemingway's' Havana"
is based on Sinclair's research
into the author's life in the
United States and abroad. Plans
call for the curtain, to rise at 7
p.m. Tuesday at Key West's
Tropic Cinema, 416 Eaton St.
In addition, Hemingway fans


can visit an ongoing exhibition
at the Key West Museum of Art
& History at the Custom House,
281 Front St., showcasing the
literary legend's Key West years.
Elements of the unique exhibit
include rare family photographs,
papers and documents, and
memorabilia relating to
Hemingway's personal life in
the island city.
Other events during
Hemingway Days typically
include daily tours of the
author's former Key West home,
Sloppy Joe's Arm Wrestling
Contest July 22, a Caribbean
street fair, Green Parrot Off-the-
Wall Sidewalk Art Show and a
5K sunset run through Old Town

Wreck 'Atocha' on
'History Detectives'

WPBT Channel 2, the public
television station, puts some of its
focus on Key West at 9 p.m.
Monday when it airs "History
Detectives."
Part of the show will be about
the Atocha, the Spanish ship-
wreck off Key West found by Mel
Fisher.
Aboard were some 40 tons of
silver and gold, which in 1622 had
been heading from the New World
to the Spanish treasury as the
means to fund the Thirty Years
War. A man from Cedartown, Ga.,
was a diver on that legendary find
and received two silver bars as
compensation for his efforts. He's
long been mystified by a strange
mark that appears on one of the
bars but is mysteriously absent
from the other.

Tukufu Zuberi translates 300-
year-old documents from the
archives of the Spanish treasury in
Seville to crack a unique code of
communication among ship cap-


tains of that era.

Rare ghost orchid

found in Naples


Variety has
nine flowers,
blooms two weeks
Associated Press

A rare ghost orchid has been
found growing high in an old
cypress tree in a southwest Florida
nature preserve.
Two visitors looking for owls
July 7 spotted the endangered
orchid growing about 45 feet off
the ground in a tree at the
Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary in
Naples.
The orchid, featured in the
nonfiction book "The Orchid
Thief" and the fictional movie
spinoff "Adaptation," is about 150
feet from the sanctuary's board-
walk and can be seen only with.
binoculars and good lighting.
The orchid, which blooms for
about two weeks, has nine flow-
ers, triple the usual number. It is


not clear how long this ghost
orchid has been blooming.
Naples photographer Ralph
Arwood spent hours waiting to
get a shot of the rare blooms.
"They're very rare, and this
one is unusual because it has so
many flowers," Arwood said.
"They're pretty impressive flow-
ers, too, as big as your hand. It's
nice to have it at Corkscrew. If it's
here, it's safe."
Park Manager-Ed Carlson said
the orchid could have been in the
tree for decades. It is the first
ghost orchid discovered near the
sanctuary boardwalk in 12 years.
"It's got a big, old root mass on
it," he. said. "We've just never
seen it before. I'm sure it's been
blooming, but they bloom in June
and July, and that's when cypress
are leafed out. So it's possible a
cypress branch covered it up all
those years and fell off in
Hurricane Wilma. Who knows?"

John Nordt talking about
Elliot Key, the northernmost
part of the Keys.
His grandfather used to sell
real estate and purchased 18
acres on Elliot Key in the
1920s. Later, his mother want-
ed a place to live on the island
and the young John Nordt was
fascinated with the history.
The island had been home to
wreckers, then farmers grow-
ing pineapples and Key limes,
then land speculators. It had
been its own school district
with 14 or,15 kids.
Eventually the government
bought the property. Nordt's
mother wrote an unpublished
history of the island and col-
lected books and maps, and
passed it along to her son.
The free lecture is at 6:30
p.m. Thursday at the Islander
Resort, mile marker 82. Hors

Summer football camp
concludes at Marathon
Community Park


By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Florida Keys Electric
Cooperative and the Marathon
Youth Club hosted the fourth
annual Youth Football Camp this
week at the Marathon
Community Park.
Organizer John Kometti said
42 kids signed tp this year and
were instructed by eight former
Florida International University
football players.
Four of those players will be
heading off to National Football
League training camps in the
coming weeks.
Other than Marathon native
and longtime NFL player Tony
Bryant, all the instructors were
former college teammates of
another Marathon native, Joey
Struyf.
Attendance was off this year
versus previous years because
several camp instructors were
attending mini-camps for their


respective NFL teams in early
June, when the camp is usually
held. But.Kometti said the camp
went well and the instructors
were great to work with.
"These guys are great, they
make it really fun for the kids,"
Kometti said.
Chris Smith, who will head to
Philadelphia Eagles camp July
26, said he enjoys the opportuni-
ty to work with kids at the camp.
"It's been good, I like coming
down here," Smith said. "Last
year was the first year I did it
and [Struyf] asked me if I want-
ed to come back."
Sfruyf said his former team-
mates enjoy coming to
Marathon to help out with the
camp, and that he was glad to
see some kids from Key West
and the Upper Keys make the
trip to Marathon to participate.

Siska finally wins Gold-Cup tourney


FLORIDA LIFTS
LIFTS ELEVATORS


i i .: .^


872-4802 www.floridalifts.com


For Tom Siska of Saddlebrook,
N.J., winning the Gold Cup
Invitational Tarpon Tournament in
Islamorada waters has been a long
time coming.
He's been second, third, fourth,
fifth nearly always in the top
five over the past 10 years. Now,
his name will be engraved on the
Gold Cup trophy alongside many
of the legends of tarpon fishing.
Siska was named grand cham-
pion at the 44th annual Gold Cup
Invitational Tarpon Tournament,
held June 17 to 22, accumulating
4,254 points from three weight
fish and three releases. He also
released the largest tarpon in the.
tournament, a 136.5-pound fish.
"It's a real honor to have my
name engraved on the perpetual
trophy," Siska said. "It's some-
thing I've wanted since 1991
when I first got involved in the
tournament. It was really sweet."
Sislka fished with Capt. Glenn
Flutie. Flutie is one of only two
anglers to have won the Gold Cup
five times (Andy Mill of Boca
Raton is the other) and the only


angler to have won the tourna-
ment five years straight (1992 to
1996).

Solid defense by Keys


BASEBALL / From 29

the televised Little League World
Series in Williamsport, Pa.
After opening District 8 play
with an 8-7 loss to Marathon, the
Upper Keys Majors won their
next five games.
This week, the Upper Keys
allowed only one run through two
games, beating Miami Springs,
14-1; and North Miami Beach,
10-0.
"When you only allow one run,
it's proof the team has been play-
ing solid. defense," Joyce said.
"Our pitching has been excellent."
Jimmy Rhyne got the Upper
Keys started against Springs with
a leadoff home run Tuesday.
Kalen Carter also homered in the


game, halted after four innings.
Brandon Joyce started on the
mound but was lifted in the sec-
ond to give the Upper Keys rota-
tion some work when the game's
outcome was assured.
Cody Roberts doubled and sin-
gled in the 10-run offense that
beat North Miami Beach on
Thursday. Jonathan Mitjans deliv-
ered a key single in his 1-for-l
day.
Justin Perrine and Rob Lietaert
shared pitching duties in the
shutout.
The nine entered all-star
squads, each representing a com-
munity Little League, played six
games to select the playoff teams.
"It wasn't really a round-robin,
but this is how it was set up,"
Joyce said.

Wine pairs well with Cuban cuisine


Robust flavors
call for reds,
whites, bubbles

Cuban dinners are usually
accompanied by ice-cold beer
or a variety of light rum drinks
(Bacardi light rum was bornin
Cuba). But wine is becoming
more popular as an accompa-
niment to both "traditional"
Cuban dishes and "Nuevo
Latino" fare.
What's interesting is trying
Sto define traditional Cuban
cooking, which is a blend of
Spanish, African and
Caribbean spices and tech-
niques.
SIn eastern Cuba, criollo (or
"creole") recipes call for gar-
lic, onion, cumin, bay leaves
and Cuban oregano. Few pep-.
pers are used. Rice and beans,
in a recipe called moros y cris-
tianos, accompany a main dish
of pork or beef and side dishes
of vianda, which refers to
yucca, potatoes, plantains,
unripe bananas and sometimes
corn. A simple salad also

are used in recipes like pica-
dillo a la Habanera (ground

nifios envueltos (beef filled
with alcaparrado served in
pepper sauce).
Eggs, especially Omelets,
and fish dishes are more com-
mon. For instance, vizcaino is
a tomato-based sauce from
Spain that's used to cook
bacalao (fried salt cod).
In Florida, restaurateurs
like Efrain Veiga, who found-
ed Yuca in Miami, and chefs
like Norman Van Aiken, first
at Louie's Back Yard in Key
West and later at his Miami
restaurants Norman's and
Mundo, merged Cuban and
Caribbean flavors with ingre-
dients and styles from Florida
and Asia to create "new Latin"
and "new world" cuisine.
With restaurants like Yuca
and Louie's leading the way,
wine began appearing along-
side Cuban dishes.
Pairings can be simple or
exotic, depending on the com-
plexity of flavors in the dish.

multiple wines so the delicate
flavors of an appetizer aren't
smothered by a heftier wine
meant for a main course like
Chuletas de puerco criollas
(spicy Cuban pork chops).
Spanish, South American

and Italian red wines go well
with rich, hearty Cuban fare
like roasted chicken, fried
pork, black beans and rice.
Try a 2004 rioja (leave the
'03 and '02 on the shelf unless
you know the specific wine).
These are generally "big" red
wines made from the tem-
pranillo grape, which put for-
ward flavors of plums and
cherries and a very slight min-
eral-like taste. The better rio-
jas are crisp and have a bit of
toasty character, having been
aged ii new French oak bar-
rels.
For more heavily spiced
dishes, like mojo pork or
smoked peppered pork belly,
try a Chianti. Chiantis tend to
be tannic and a bit edgy with
an acidic bite but rich, spicy
Cuban dishes tame the wine,
allowing its fruit to show
through.
Chianti is made from the
sangiovese grape and the wines
range from "takes the paint off
your deck" to excellent. The
market is flooded with
mediocre Chiantis, so expect to
pay $25 or more for something
decent. Good producers include
Fontodi, Castello
Vicchiomaggio, Castello
Cacchiano, Felsina, and
Castello di Ama. None are
inexpensive.
Sangiovese is also the pri-.
mary grape in brunello, which
is arguably the best wine made
in Tuscany. To highlight a fine
Nuevo Latino meal, try a
Brunello di Montalcino one
of the wines from the area


southwest of Florence. These
reds are richer and more pow-
erful than any Chianti and
could be the reason Chianti
bottles are better known for
holding candles than fine
wine.
When in doubt, there's
always petite syrah (not to be
confused with syrah, which is
lighter and less tannic). Also
spelled petite sirah, these
wines are spicy and tannic;
you can feel the wine as well
as taste it. Throw a dish full of
the strongest Cuban spices at a
petite syrah and the wine will
hold its own.
Try the petites from David
Bruce, Bogle, Turley and
Rosenblum Cellars.
On the white wine side,
there's always chardonnay to
go with grilled seafood dishes.
But for an interesting twist
(I'll probably go to chardon-
nay hell for this) try a dry
champagne or cava (Spanish
sparkling wine).
If the dish features shellfish
cracked conch or shrimp -
the crisp, tingly sparkling
wine adds a refreshing touch
to the meal.
Another white that goes
well with rich Cuban seafood
dishes is Semillon. The wine
is soft and medium-bodied,
and gives off lemon and herbal
flavors. It's an excellent part-
ner to baked or lightly fried
fish, tuna carpaccio (or sashi-
mi), lobster, clams, mussels
and very fresh oysters (if you
like your raw oysters with hot
sauce and Saltines, stick with
beer, preferably Jax). Serve
the wine chilled but not refrig-
erator-cold. Expect to pay
about $15 for a nice Semillon.

Sinclair brings Cuba's Hemingway to Keys


Annual fest
fills streets
of Key West
Can you hear the thunder-
ing of the bulls on Duval
Street? It's time for
Hemingway Days again.
The July 17 through 22 festi-
val begins with award-winning
Canadian actor and playwright
Brian Gordon Sinclair's dra-
matic storytelling presentation
"Hemingway's Havana" at Key
West's Tropic Cinema, 416
Eaton St. Ticket sales benefit the
Key West Art & Historical
Society.
Sinclair came to Key West to
research a play about
Hemingway and discovered the
festival, promptly won the
Young Hemingway Look-Alike
Contest and used the prize
money to finance the next leg of
his Hemingway trek.
He wrote "Hemingway on
Stage," first as a three-act play
but it grew into a five-part
chronological series.
"His life encompassed s6
many different things that it
became an adventure for me,"
Sinclair said. The research has
taken him to London and Paris,
Spain's Civil War battlefields
and bullfighting rings,
Hemingway's childhood home in
Oak Park, Ill., and countless
other places.
"Hemingway's Havana" is a
separate Papa creation. He plans
to present the final play in his
"Hemingway On Stage" series in
Key West during Hemingway


S -Days 2008.

tival has

Dave Price, the ebullient

All for love of art, education

Sotolongo Kelley home and gallery blends 2 nations


BY JESSICA MACHETTA
jmachetta@keynoter.com


Carmen Sotolongo
Kelley, a Key Largo
artist, left Cuba when
she was 6. In 1961, her par-
ents decided to move to
Venezuela, where her grand-


parents had
moved a
month
before.
One year
later, the
Sotolongos
moved to
Miami, but


quickly moved to Tampa Bay
where her father began to
study to recoup his medical
degree.
"Even though I was just 6,
I realized I came from a very


close-knit family on both my
father's and mother's side,"
she said. "My father's family
settled in Cuba in 1519. The
first Sotolongo was 'donned,'
which means he was granted
land by the kings of Spain to
settle in the new world."


She said her


Cuban roots
and pride
had always
been part of
her upbring-
ing, and
though
Spanish was
spoken at
home, her


parents stressed-the impor-
tance of mastering the
English language and focus-
ing on education.
"I have always been cre-
ative and started drawing


If you go back in Cuban history, the development of
true Cuban style depended on those who ruled or the
government at the time, and their styles reflected what
was going on in the world of art IImpressionism, cubism,
realism, etc.), .vet their uruqueness in what they created
reflected their ties to being Cubans. What I see in the art
of Cubans in Cuba today has that same undertone. The

'- The only thing we overlook is the ocean


from the time I could hold a
pencil," Sotolongo Kelley
said. "I loved school and was
able to be fluent in English a
year after moving to the U.S.
My parents knew that I
wanted to be an artist and
provided me with every
opportunity throughout my
schooling. The fact that we
were proud of being Cuban
and grateful for being in
America gave me the oppor-
tunity to grow up here and
learn the American way and
cherish my culture as well."
Sotolongo Kelley, who has
Been in the U.S. some 40
years now, says she carries
her roots with her because
."that is who I am." She and
her husband, a Pennsylvania
native, have blended their
cultures, passing both onto
their children, who are bilin-
gual and one of which
speaks four languages.
"I believe my art has a
Latin flare because of the
past I remember," she said. "I
have a very visual focus and
photographic memory. The
things I remember from my
Cuban past are the sugar-
cane fields of my family. The
house and colors of the water

She's grateful for the free-
dom of expression she has
here, and though the art
scene in Cuba doesn't seem
to be as censored as one
might expect, Sotolongo
Kelly is sympathetic to the
Cuban people's struggle.
"It has to be very hard for
artists to draw happy things
in their art living in constant
fear under the oppression...,"
she said. "The rationing of
food and supplies makes it
difficult to substitute for
alternatives such as the cost
of art materials. Any U.S dol-
lars offered for a piece of art-
work may feed their families
an extra ration of meat, rice
and beans for the month."


That's why, she said,
artists there may tend to
paint what the tourists want
instead of what inspires them
to paint and truly feel.
"And even so, those who
feel oppressed on expression
through art form find ways
to disguise their protest with-
in their art," she said.
She points out that many
art collectors seek out works
by artists in Cuba.
"The comparison of the art
piece between a free Cuban
artist and an artist still living
in Cuba have a common sub-
ject matter the love of their

Some of the best places to eat in Cuba are at paladares, private homes allowed to operate as businesses as long
as they seat no more than 12 people at any given time. Even the paladares get government-rationed food,
which is tracked through ration booklets.This ration book at Chango shows what the restaurant has been given
by the government.


A different way to dine

Paladares offer alternative to typical menues


BY JESSICA MACHETTA
jmachetta@keynoter.com

Dining in Cuba can be
quite an experience.
Some restaurants
have menus similar to what
Americans are familiar with,
but others offer only a few


choices.
A comida ag yI-j
complete, R -
often just
called "cor- 1
pleta,"
might
include a
salad, chick-
en thighs, rice and beans for
about $6 to $10. Other com-
pletas are more, well, com-
plete and more expensive.
But what's available for
restaurants to serve up can
vary. Often, when choices
are limited, customers will
sigh and order a staple of
the Cuban diet jamon y
queso ham and cheese
between two slices of fresh
Cuban bread. It is not
always, as is typical of a
Cuban-mix sandwich in the
Keys, pressed or even toast-
ed.


II;


Often, the most satisfying
dining experience can be
found at paladares. Paladar lit-
erally translates to "palate,"
and is the term used for pri-
vately operated "restau-
rants" in people's homes.
The government allows resi-
dents to operate these mini-
restaurants
so long as
they seat
only up to 12
%people.
At one
paladar,
Change in
Cienfuegos,
a complete included shrimp
and vegetables over rice, a
plate of fresh sliced fruit and
cheese and a salad. Beer and
wine were extra. The bill
came to about $25 each. That
price is a bit heftier than
grabbing a jamon y queso at a
roadside cafe, but still pretty
cheap compared to prices in
America and Europe.
Included in that price is
an ambiance found in few
commercial businesses:

Havana shares her secrets

Author talks about newest autobiography


BY JESSICA MACHETTA
jmachetta@keynoter.com


Alfredo Jose Estrada,
who visited the
Keys a few years
ago to promote his book
"Welcome to Havana Sefor
Hemingway," now intro-
duces anoth-
er book,
"Havana: N
Auto- .z
biography of
a City."
While the
first was a
fictional
account of how the famous
author's days in Havana
were likely spent, as well as
during an air of political sea
change, his new book is
grounded.in historical fact.
Estrada is well qualified
to tackle the subject matter;
his family moved to the
states when he was 2. Thirty
years later, he returned on
several research trips.
"A child of the

Revolution, I was born
shortly after Castro tri-
umphantly entered Ha
in 1959," he writes. "A
volatile mix of Basque
Catalan blood, my moti
people came to Cuba fr
Spain...."
He goes on to explain

and Connecticut. He now
lives in Austin, Texas, with
vana his wifeand two sons.
"Neither Cuban nor
and American, I was trapped in
her's the hyphen between them,
om more impassable than the
Straits of Florida."
n Estrada talked about his
e trips to Cuba, which began
f in 1991, and about how he
mid- sees change each time he
s, his goes. He talked about two
ini- of Cuba's famous icons that
ip- share a history with the
the Keys: Ernest Hemingway

other "Jose Marti is the apostle
of freedom," he said.
'riefly "Castro always quoted
Marti. I think the real Marti
[rt would've objected just as
before strongly to the U.S. embar-

The book begins: "You
can easily find Havana on

tion."
Estrada tells his readers
in the first chapter about
how although most
Americans have never been
to the capitol city, it's
engraved in our memories.
"...Havana remains oddly

constant desire for freedom."
Her work is finding'its
way into many homes in the
Keys and in South Florida,
especially Miami.
"I always refer to my art
and title it accordingly -
'Somewhere in my Cuban
Heart,' 'Guajiro of my Past,'
'Turquoise Waters of my
Homeland,' etc. The Cuban
community in Miami who
have worked hard to recoup
their degrees want to buy art
to decorate their homes from
artists who bring back a
memory from their past, or a
familiar landscape that
reminds them of good
times," she said. "The most
serious Carmen Sotolongo
Kelley collectors are Cuban
Americans and I take that as
the biggest compliment in
my art career."


About the artist
Carmen Sotolongo Kelley
was born in 1954 in Havana
and later lived in Calimete
and Matanzas, Cuba, until
age 6. She attended
American schools, including
the University of Florida and
University of South Florida,
earning degrees in social sci-
ence, Earth and space (focus
on oceanography) and has
studied fine art throughout.
Her work has won awards
in many art shows and in
galleries throughout Florida.
She is a teacher of integrated
and marine science at Coral
Shores High School in
Islamorada. After school and
on weekends, she creates at
her gallery, The Key Largo
Art Gallery. She has been
married for 31 years and has
three children and one
granddaughter.

politically correct documen-
taries like the 'Buena Vista
Social Club.' Even if you've
never gone, you know what
cliches to expect, and you
think of conga lines and
communism, Ricky Ricardo
as well as Che Guevara."
And while Estrada's book
takes on Havana's history
unabashedly, his feel for lit-
erature is dotted throughout
the book.
"At first blush, Goethe's
eternal feminine appears to
predominate in Havana," he
writes. "In Spanish, the
name La Habana rolls sweet-
ly off the palate. The h is
silent and the tongue skips
from the article directly to
the soft welcome of the h.
Havana's geography
strengthens this conclusion.
The curve of the Malecon is
like a woman's waist, and
from above the city appears
to recline gracefully on the
blue divan of the Gulf
Stream. It has been wryly
observed that Havana has


one of the few harbors
where ships can penetrate
directly into the city, almost
to the doorsteps of the hous-
es."
Estrada notes in the book,
too, that writing about
Havana, and finding a mid-
dle ground between political
extremes, is like walking a
tightrope. And while he
notes that his first visits in
the early '90s showed a
stark, skinny Cuba during
the "Special Period" after
the fall of the Soviet Union
and the financial support it
provided he sees positive
change in motion.
"You see all the renova-
tions, tourism promotions,"
he said. "The level of repres-
sion is still the same. I think
there's more freedom in the
arts, particularly in the liter-
ary area. That's a beneficial
change; that is something
that is new, and a very posi-
tive thing."
His sentiments about the
Cuban government con-
versely vary from those
about relations between U.S.

and Cuban citizens.
"In Cuba, Cubans have
never lost their spirit for
Americans," he said. "That's
what.Americans and Cubans
have in common. That's evi-
dent with Hemingway's
legacy in Cuba; I think what
people liked about
Hemingway is what they
like about Americans. You
see the billboards along the
Malecon with Bush holding
a gun to his head; well,
that's the propaganda, not
the feeling of the people
there. I think it's the same
on this end. I don't think
there's any antipathy from
the U.S. to Cubans."
Estrada is hopeful for
Cuba's future, and believes
people will think of the
Revolution as one chapter in
Cuba's history.
"This is really a blip in
the radar screen," he said.
"For me, the Revolution
doesn't define Cuba."
Nor does it define his book,
which hit shelves in mid-April.
Estrada offers a glimpse into
Havana'during the Colonial
period, Batista, etc.
"Havana tells its own
story," he said. "Each neigh-
borhood has its own histo-
ry," he explained, noting
how architectural styles
show influences from all
over the world. "There's
more art deco in Havana
than Miami Beach. There are
neighborhoods in Havana
that look like Key West."
Estrada expects to visit
the Keys again soon, but
isn't so sure about Cuba.
"I don't know that I'll
necessarily go back until the
change after Fidel," he said.
"I'll definitely go back once
the transition is more
definite."
"Havana: Autobiography
of a City" retails for $24.95.

Do Cuban Miami-style

'Three Guys' show how even gringos can cook it right


BY'JESSICA MACHETTA

Cuban food in the Keys
and Miami is easy to
come by.
Rather than try to dupli-
cate its rich, filling and often
fatty staples in their own
kitchens though, most
Americans are more comfort-
able stopping by 5 Brothers

for morning croquettes and.
coladas, the grocery stores
for Cuban bread, Villa Blanca
in Marathon for lunch spe-
cials or El Mason in Key
West for a nice dinner to cap-
ture its authenticity and
robust flavors, or a sandwich
at Denny's (not the chain) in
Key Largo.
Many Americans are
aware of our nation's ever-
growing waistlines and yet
in Cuba, where it's perceived
many are malnourished, a
starchy diet, often prepared
with mostly pork as a meat
source, the populace tends to
be one with
thick figures. m agIlr.

Food at center of Cuban parties

may be handicapped (as I
am) by a quirk of fate that
brought you into this world
without a drop of Cuban
blood in your body. Don't let
this cruel trick of nature
make you miss out on all the
fun."
The two Cubans it's
easy to guess which one -
quickly agree, talk about
Cuban get-togethers center-
ing on food, dance and story-
telling, and then get the party
started.
Full-page photos intermit-


tently introduce the vivid
reds, yellows and oranges of
Cuban delis, Calle 8 in Miami
and individual dishes as the
recipes manifest.
Sidebars, again with the
three guys sharing informa-
tion conversation-style, give
light to traditions, holidays,
and, of course, food.
Many recipes substitute
olive oil, where authentic
Cuban dishes would use lard
or vegetable oil, such as
escabeche de pescado, mari-
nated fish.
However, there's no
skimping on the real stuff on

others, such as platanos
dulce (sweet plantains),
which calls for plantains,
light Bacardi rum, half a stick
of butter, a cup of brown
sugar and cinnamon.
Or torticas de coco
(coconut cookies), which
among other ingredients calls
for cane sugar and lard.
One section of the cook-
book features batidos, Cuban
milkshakes. Batido de
mamey, commonly served as
part of breakfast in Cuba,
calls for fresh mamey, a tropi-
cal fruit found commonly on
that island. However, finding
it in the U.S., even South
Florida, can prove difficult.
The Three Guys know this
and offer ways to get around
it.
The book, for all intents
and purposes, lets readers
get as close to authentic as
possible in their kitchens

and, later, at the table. Each
recipe is served up a side of
history and a healthy dose of
humor.


Jeff is returning to the Keys! During the
80's and early 90's Jeff opened and oper-
ated Ocean Quest Dive Center before sell-
ing it and moving for family reasons. Jeff
states... "When I was approached by Blue
Water Mortgage Company to join their
team I was thrilled. To have the opportu-
nity to move back to the Florida Keys, to
escape the corporate world and do what I
love, which is mortgage lending, it didn't
take long for us to work out the details.
With Blue Water Mortgage Company's
excellent reputation, our shared business
vision, commitment to quality, honesty and
customer service we are a perfect fit".
Jeff continues..."My whole family is excit-
ed about our return to the community,
from my daughter who was born here, to
my son who loves to fish, to my wife
Faye."
