Judge recuses self

Monroe County Circuit
Court Judge Wayne Miller has
recused himself from sentencing
two young men who pleaded
guilty June 5 to a felony count of
bludgeoning a Big Pine Key
alligator to death.
The recusal came Monday,


three days after defense attorneys
filed a motion to disqualify the
judge on behalf of defendants
Timothy Goll, 19, and Jordan
Milo, 20, of Big Pine Key.
Jason Smith, attorney for
Goll, said in an interview that
after Miller discussed his
client's case on US1 Radio's
"Morning Magazine," Goll did-
n't feel confident his sentencing
would be conducted impartially
due to "bias of the judge," as

Study links sewage, coral


WATER QUALITY / From 1

Colony Beach City Hall.
Bill Kruczynski, program sci-
entist for the EPA's water-quality
protection program, will give the
study report. He declined com-
ment about the study's findings,
saying he would issue no specific
information about what the
researchers discovered until
Tuesday's meeting because the
study, conducted by researchers
from the University of Georgia,
U.S. Geological Survey and
Michigan State University, is
undergoing peer review, meaning
experts in the field are examining
it to check its validity. The study
was submitted to the EPA in
December.
Until that review is complete,
or until Tuesday's meeting -
whichever comes first -
Kruczynski said he would have
no comment except to say "the
conclusion of the report supports
improving wastewater and
stormwater treatment in Monroe
County."
Kruczynski said the study's
principal investigators have been
told not to issue statements to the
media pending the outcome of
the peer review.
However, a copy of the study
obtained by the Keynoter and
Keys Sunday paints a grim pic-
ture of the quality of ocean water
and reefs off the island chain, and
cites in-ground untreated waste
disposal as the likely culprit.
The document states the goals
of the project were to investigate
the levels of human waste contam-
ination along a nearshore-to-off-
shore portion of the Upper Keys
using human enteric (intestinal)
viruses as the indicator of sewage;
and to determine health risks asso-
ciated with contamination.
Between July 2003 and
September 2005, researchers
took samples from coral mucus,
the water column and groundwa-
ter at five testing stations off Key
Largo.

Coliform found
Researchers detected evidence
of fecal coliform, enterococci and
C. perfringens which are found
in human and animal waste at
several testing stations off Key
Largo. Although the levels were
Scll belIh: those indicating haz-


enteric viruses were found more
than six miles from land.
During the course of the study,
researchers also sampled surface
water from Port Largo Canal and
the canal at West Shore Drive on
Big Pine Key.
Coliform bacteria were detect-
ed in both areas, and it was found
that movement of waterborne
contaminants into the bay and
ocean waters were dictated by
tidal ebb and flow.
Finally, samples were taken
from Higgs Beach in Key West
and the beach at Bahia Honda
State Park. While fecal coliform
levels were below state stan-
dards, higher levels of enterococ-
ci at Higgs corresponded with
beach advisories issued twice
during the study period.
If the concentration is high
enough, viral and/or bacterial
contaminants can pose a health
risk to people exposed to them by
swimming or diving.
They can also kill coral, said
DeeVon Quirolo, executive direc-
tor of Reef Relief in Key West.
"Coral are highly sensitive to
any pollution at all, and we've
already witnessed the decline of
the coral due to contamination,"
Quirolo said. "The marine
ecosystem cannot absorb this
level of pollution. We have got to
get systems installed to adequate-
ly treat our sewage and deal with
stormwater runoff.
"This latest study just under-
lines the urgency of swift action
on the part of our municipalities
and the county."
The Keys are under a state
mandate to replace septic tanks
and cesspits with modem sewer
systems by 2010 or face possible
sanctions. Many communities
throughout the area are scram-


bling for money to complete their
sewage treatment facilities.

'Same song and dance'
Islamorada flats guide Mike
Collins, a governing board mem-
ber of the South Florida Water
Management District, said he has
read the study and, in his opinion,
"it's the same old song and
dance."
"This is ridiculous and inex-
cusable," Collins said. "We've
had evidence of contamination
for years and we all know it's due
to a lack of proper wastewater
treatment."
He said the water district
stopped allocating money two
years ago for studies like the one
to be released Tuesday because
"nothing ever comes out of those
studies."
Collins also said he does not
understand why the EPA has been
holding the results of the current
study for seven months without
releasing its findings to the public.
"The federal government's
behavior in this is despicable,"
Collins said. "It's wrong, and
people should be screaming from
the rooftops."
Citizens will have a chance to
hear the full report of the study
and comment on it and other top-
ics of concern at Tuesday's meet-
ing. A public comment session is
scheduled to begin at 3:15 p.m.;
Kruczyski's presentation of it is
set for 11 a.m.
Also on the meeting agenda
are annual reports on projects
monitoring seagrass, coral and
water quality, as well as a report
on the status of the Monroe
County wastewater master plan
and an update on the status of
money for wastewater and
stormwater upgrades.

Office also will have every avail-
able deputy out working during
the two days.
Sheriff's Office boats will be
on the water doing vessel inspec-
tions and checking for short lob-
ster, illegally wrung tails and for
boaters who are drinking alcohol
while operating their boats.
Deputies on land will check
boat ramps and enforce the ordi-
nances that ban lobster hunting
within 300 feet of improved
shoreline.
The U.S. Coast Guard also
takes part in enforcement and
safety patrols.
This marks the 15th year since
the state moved the mini-season
to mid-week in. an attempt to
reduce the crowds that jammed
the Keys for weekend sport days.
"That really helped things
level off," Dube said. "It's not the
total chaos it used to be. There
were thousands of boats, stacked
up at every little lobster hole. We
don't see those numbers of boats
now."
Monroe County and Biscayne
National Park have a six-per-day
limit during mini-season, while
the rest of Florida has a 12-per-
day limit. Diving for lobster at
night also is banned in Keys
waters during the sport season.


S briefs


Citizens Property
officials here Monday

Fair Insurance Rates in
Monroe, a grassroots group that's
worked to get lower insurance
rates for Keys homeowners, has
scheduled an informational meet-
ing on Citizens Property
Insurance Corp.'s claims-handling
procedures for Keys residents.
The session with representa-
tives from Citizens is from 6 to 8
p.m. Monday at the Harvey
Government Center on Truman
Avenue in Key West.
Citizens Senior Vice President
of Claims Tim Loftin and
Catastrophe-Claims Manager Rick
Larson are scheduled to talk about
claims management procedures
and customer service designed to
expedite claims'handling to should
a catastrophe strike.'
After the presentation, they
will take questions from the floor.


"The move to mid-week and
the tighter bag limit took a lot of
the pressure off, which was the
whole intent," Dube said.
Waters within 300 feet from
shores are closed to diving in the
Keys except for Key West to dis-
courage trespassing by shore
divers.
In Key Colony Beach, the
rules are tighter the ban covers
a time period from four days
before mini-season until 10 days
after the Aug. 6 opening of the
regular season.
"We still get some cases of
people fighting over lobster holes
or shooting flares at each other,"
Dube said, "but it doesn't seem to
be getting worse."
Mini-season has gotten dead-
lier, however.
Four people died while diving
in the Keys during the 2006 mini-
season, after four deaths the
previous year.
The sudden exertion of lobster
diving can trigger heart attacks,
Monroe County Medical
Examiner Michael Hunter said
after reviewing the deaths.
Others may suffer fatal
embolisms from frequent diving
and surfacing.
To help make lobster mini-
season a safe activity, several
agencies and local dive shops
will stage the first Lobster Diving*
Rodeo and Safety Expo Monday
on Stock Island.
"People have been working to
make sure it's well-run," Dube
said. "We honestly don't know if
we'll get 100 people or 10,000.
But we're trying. If one life is
saved, it will be worth it."
Surveys by scientists with the
Florida Marine Research Institute
indicate that in a typical mini-
season, divers will take about
184,000 lobster from Keys
waters.
"We will watch for the multi-
ple-trippers," Dube said of divers
who return to the water after
landing their daily limit.
Finding ways to curtail bag-
limit violations has been a major
focus of the state Lobster
Advisory Group, which meets
regularly in the Keys.
Some type of tagging system
could be recommended to the full
Conservation Commission this
fall as it prepares for an overhaul
of state lobster laws.
Other standard rules size
limits, spearing lobster and prohi-
bitib6is on taking egg-bearing
femnji,; also will be enforced
during mini-season.

millage T

Reduction likely
due to reform
from Legislature
Reporter Staff


The Monroe County School
Board will vote Tuesday to
adopt a tentative tax rate for the
2007-08 budget year.
Under the current millage
rate of 3.0610, the owner of a
homesteaded home valued at
$721,000 paid slightly more
than $2,200 this year.
It is likely the millage rate
will decrease next fiscal year as
a result of property tax-relief
legislation from Tallahassee


tuesday


passed in June.
The School Board will also
vote on other areas affecting the
budget, including a proposed 15
percent cut in discretionary
departmental spending, a cap on
district travel, and a hiring
freeze on some non-teaching
positions.
The meeting begins at 10 a.m.
Tuesday in the A.J. Henriquez
Administration Complex, 241
Trumbo Road in Key West, and
will be broadcast live on
Comcast Cable Channel 78.
Members of the public can

e{ys Opinion


Evidence pretty clear

on need for sewers

"People should be screaming from the rooftops."
-Mike Collins, Board member
South Florida Water Management District

If predictions come true, there will be two public meetings this
coming week sure to rile folks who are angry about water quality and
efforts'to clean up our own mess.
On Tuesday, the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary Water
Quality Protection Program's steering committee meets at Key
Colony Beach City Hall. It starts at 8 a.m.
Its members will hear results from a study of human fecal contam-
ination found in nearshore waters and scientists connecting the dots
between what was found off Key Largo and what's not been done to
replace septic systems and cesspits. That's set for an 11 a.m. presen-
tation.
The study is controversial because other scientists have not yet
reviewed results of the two-year study; funded by the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency.
Such peer review is the gold standard applied to most anything
that has to do with water-quality science.
But Islamorada flats guide Mike Collins, a member of the South
Florida Water Management District governing board, says more stud-
ies are a waste of time.
In today's Keynoter, you'll be able to read his rather pointed com-
ments and perhaps add some of your own at Tuesday's meet-
ing, which has set aside time for public comment starting at 3:15 p.m.
On Wednesday, we anticipate more strong feelings will be shared
when the Marathon City Council holds a workshop on its first major
sewer contract, which is slated for an area covering 39th Street to
60th Street, bayside to ocean, including all of the Sombrero neighbor-
hoods.
Depending on who you listen to, this initial system with plant will
cost individual property,owners anywhere from $10,000 to $25,000,
not counting the expense to put in pipes connecting homes or busi-
nesses to the sewer line running past their properties.
That's a big difference in cost estimates and is one of the reasons
Marathon property owners should attend Wednesday's workshop to
leam more about this project.
Some speakers may resurrect old arguments even challenging the
need for sewers, rehashing old battles and scoffing at links between
septicsystems, cesspits and what's happened to our nearshore waters.
But you don't need a scientist's report, or more studies, to see
with your own eyes what's happened. Just talk to anyone who's lived
in Marathon more than a decade and you'll get eyewitness accounts
of what's happened.
Talk to those who grew up here, and you may be moved to tears at
what's happened.
Wednesday's workshop begins at 6 p.m. and will be held at the
Sheriff's Office hangar at Florida Keys Marathon Airport.
This is an important meeting you don't want to miss.

County dragging feet on permit renewal


EDITOR:
This week marked the end of the fifth week
since I filed for renewal of a building permit
with the Monroe County Building Department
in the Jerry Ellis building on Plantation Key.
When I initially filed for this renewal, I was
told that I would get it in days. When I returned
a little less than three weeks later, I was told
that it was awaiting review but that they would
try to get it done in the next two days.
After nearly four weeks, I returned to the
department and was then informed that a new
plans examiner had just started the week before,
that the permit request files were now "mov-
ing," and that mine was in the pile awaiting
review based on the order in which the applica-


tions came in.
I do not understand why it is taking so long
to issue my renewal permit. The last time I
applied for renewal, a little over a year ago, it
only took about a week. Meanwhile, we have
purchased materials and have tried to set aside
time to do the work as owners/builders but are
stuck in limbo while the Building Department
plods along.
What is particularly galling is that this is a
renewal of a previously issued permit where
nothing in the application has changed, so the
renewal approval should be quick and easy.
Obviously, something is wrong here.

Keys need the Extension Service


EDITOR:
Upon returning from a recent workshop
about how local governments across the
country are taking the lead on climate change
and protection of the environment, I was dis-
mayed to learn that certain positions within
the Monroe County Cooperative Extension
Service are being cut and that the entire
extension is in jeopardy of ceasing to exist.
This entity is one of the most cost-effec-
tive and essential offices we have in the
county, and a true bargain since half the
funding for salary, travel and publications
comes from the University of Florida and not
county coffers.
For every dollar the county spends on the
Extension Service, residents receive more
than three times that value in direct services
- that is good fiscal management.
In our remote county, the Extension
Service provides accessibility to expertise
and resources from the mainland that would
not exist here or be accessible to our resi-
dents without it. Local advisory committees
assure that educational programs are designed
to meet community needs.
The Horticulture Program, Youth 4-H
Program, Family and Consumer Science
Program, and Sea Grant Marine Program pro-
vide thousands of volunteer hours to the com-
munity each year and customer savings of
hundreds of thousands of dollars.

of a collaboration between the Extension
Service and several devoted Keys residents.
This event drew more than 3,000 people in
March and the community has demonstrated
it needs more, not less, information and train-
ing on how individuals, businesses and policy
makers can work toward a more sustainable
lifestyle and environment in the Keys.
The County Commission has supported
these efforts in its commitment to join the
Keyswide Sustain-Ability Project sponsored
by GLEE and to include annual funding to
support the event. The loss of Extension
Service jobs undermines the county's com-
mitment and seriously impedes GLEE's abili-
ty to produce this event. In-kind donations of
time and resources from the Extension
Service have been essential to the production
of this all-volunteer, grassroots event.
I recognize the commissioners have diffi-
cult decisions ahead of them. Cutting staff
from the Extension Service would provide
Minimal savings to the budget compared to
the benefits received, and would be a great
Detriment to the entire Keys community.

EDITOR:
The Anchors Aweigh Club wishes

Coldwell Banker Schmitt Charitable
Foundation of Key West for its gen-
erous donation to our matching grant
funds dedicated to effecting much-
needed structural repairs to our
building at 404 Virginia St., Key

strates its pledge to and active
involvement in improving the health,

GLEE deserves TDC funding


EDITOR:
We at CH2M HILL are pleased
to write this letter in support of
Monroe County Tourist
Development Council funding for
the 2008 Green Living and Energy
Education (GLEE) Expo. This
event offers practical solutions for
people to learn about sustainable
living, water and energy conserva-
tion, renewable energy and green
building so they can lead healthier
lifestyles, reduce business costs,
improve their community and save
energy, water and the earth's envi-
ronment.
As a sponsor of the 2007 Expo,
we remain committed to support-
ing Expo 2008, as this event not
only serves to educate our local
population about principles and
practices of green living, but also
presents a tremendous Opportunity
to encourage visitors from afar to
come and experience what the
Keys are doing to promote sustain-
able living.
Promoting our image as good


environmental stewards will res-
onate with the ever-increasing
number of eco-conscious tourists
who will appreciate the Keys'
commitment to sustainability and
the protection of our precious
resources.
GLEE's most significant envi-
ronmental benefits are through
connecting vendors and customers,
gathering world-class experts,
locating and disseminating sustain-
ability methods and sources, moti-
vating and educating governmental
and regulatory agencies, creating
demand for aspiring businesses
and by providing a forum for the
exchange of sustainability princi-
ples.
All of this can be found under
one roof, at the annual Expo.
We encourage the county TDC
to provide assistance toward pro-
motion of this important event.
The rewards gained by all who
participate will be tremendous.

Why's the new school so-big?


EDITOR:
If you haven't driven past
Marathon High School lately, you
should. It's an eye-opener. The pre-
poured concrete walls keep rising
higher and higher; it is huge.
It's a mystery to me because our
recent graduating class of 66 beau-
tiful young women and handsome
young men would indicate a
declining school population, not a
need for a larger school. These are
some of my guesses as to why the
school is so big. What is your
guess?"
+ The School Board knows
something about f.iure enrollment
that we don't know.


+ Perhaps it will be used for
teacher housing now that the
Marathon Manor deal fell through.
+ Will it be used as an emer-
gency hurricane shelter for the res-
idents who do not evacuate?
+ The money was appropriated,
so if it isn't used, it will be lost.
It's only the taxpayers' money, $47
million plus overruns.
+ The building project has pro-
vided income for many local con-
struction companies and local
employees.
Just kidding on that last guess.
What's yours?

Delta's pullout illustrates the obvious


EDITOR:
Your editorial, "Delta leaves Marathon
looking like a jilted lover," is a vindica-
tion and verification of my letter earlier to
you in which I opposed any subsidy
(read: bribe) to lure an airline to
Marathon.
If there is a true, consistent demand for
air service to Marathon, Delta would cer-
tainly find ways to land its planes on the
5,000-foot runway. Good business sense
dictates that if market A is more lucrative
than market B, Delta will divert its planes
to A and leave B aside, even though B
might have a 15,000-foot runway.
Demand and/or need create business,
not subsidies.
I witnessed this fact when I accompa-
nied the owner-operator of the Kentucky
Fried Chicken franchise holder in
Indonesia, where he has about 300 KFC
restaurants throughout the archipelago,
some of them in the remote area of Irian
Jaya (Indonesian New Guinea).
The logistics are mind-boggling. What
a headache to transport the foodstuffs and


operate his own generators for the freez-
ers, the air conditioning, etc. But because
of demand, the KFCs there are profitable.
I like Marathon. It is a miniature cos-
mopolis that has almost everything and its
Sombrero Beach is for sure second to
none, more beautiful than Bahia Honda or
the Key West beaches. But Marathon is,
in my opinion, mainly a residential city
and as such it is quite difficult to attract
flying tourists, especially those on a
budget.
Instead of subsidizing airlines, the
money can be better spent on improving
existing mobile homes to storm-proof
affordable housing or to speed up the
sewering of the city.
Perhaps erecting a spectacular tower
with a revolving restaurant near the
Marathon airport so diners have a view of
both the Atlantic and the Gulf might
attract tourists from Duck Key and other
areas and, who knows, might bring an air-
line back to Marathon.

Ramrod Key


Here's hoping air service returns


EDITOR:
As a founding member of the Florida
Keys Marathon Airport Task Force, I too
want to add my regrets about Delta bail-
ing out on us. And that is just what it is
doing. When the going got tough hot
weather, less traffic, etc. it abandoned
ship.
As a letter writer pointed out in the
July 14 paper, he decided to support Delta
even when he could have gotten a cheap-
er fare from the mainland. I think I was
the one who talked him into taking the
chance with the new guys. So much for
my credibility about airlines from now


on.
On talk radio, I heard Peter Horton,
Monroe County airports director, say
Delta will be back in November and by
then we should have
Gulfstream/Continental on board. I only
hope so.
Will the security teams we have in
place now still be here in the fall, or will
we have to go through that debacle again?
We need the airport. Our time has
come for quality air service at a good
price. Let's hope we get it.

Boathouse sprinkler is wasting water


EDITOR:
I couldn't believe what I saw driving
down the-road the other day about 7:30
a.m.
I was driving in the left lane north on
U.S. 1 passing the newly built boat-
house in Marathon. It was not raining
and this burst of water hit my car. I
looked to my right to see what it was
and it was the brand new sprinkler sys-
tem for the boathouse.
Now, I know we are under a strict
water restriction and I also know that
pavement doesn't need to be watered.
The road will not grow if you water it. I
was in the left lane and a jet stream of
water from the sprinkler hit my car!
What is going on?
Does Cay Clubs have an exception to
the water restriction? They spent how
many dollars and hours to construct that
hoathoumse and now they are wate.rin :


the pavement?

The Islamorada Village
Council OK'd the tentative tax
rate at a Monday budget meeting.
The council voted 4-1 to adopt
a tax rate or millage of $1.8122
per $1,000 of taxable property.
At that rate, the owner of a
house assessed at $600,000 will pay
about $1,087 in Islamorada proper-
ty taxes. The current rate is $1.95
per $1,000 of taxable property.
Councilman Michael Reckwerdt
was initially opposed to changing
the village rate from the state
minimum of 1.6853, which was
originally proposed at the meet-
ing. He changed his mind only
after Councilman Chris Sante
urged him to reconsider.
"In the spirit of compromise,
I'll go along," Reckwerdt said.
SMayor Dave Boerner also was
going to vote for the lower rate,
but he changed his vote after two
motions to do so failed.
Ultimately, Vice Mayor Cathi
Hill was the only opposition to
the higher rate.
According to Finance Director
Alice Filinovich, the tax rate can
still be decreased in the next sev-
eral meetings. However, it can't
be lowered to less than 1.6853.
The proposed $10,516,857
general fund budget was
decreased to $10,170,056 at
another budget workshop also on
Monday.
After the council asked individ-

budget decreased by $346,801, For the past two yea
nitluser in a nearly 9 percent a e


decrease from the current budget.
The few things left to fine tune
in the budget are the amount of
fuel sold at the Plantation Yacht
Harbor Marina at Founders Park,
the amount of money allotted for
program stipends for the Parks
and Recreation Department and
the amount of money allotted for
cat food for the cats at the marina.
The budget needs to be adjust-
ed by only $6,000, which
Boerner said, as compared to
other years, is very simple.
Because of renovations at the
marina and fewer available boat
slips, the council decided to

$900 per week for programs such
as tennis, diving and swimming.
Director John Sutter said if he
was given $550 per week for
-these programs instead of cutting
off the stipend completely, as was
proposed, he could anticipate
having several programs be self-
sustaining for the next year.
Cat food comes out of the
budget for the marina, and at
$2,500, many council members
thought it was too steep. The
council decided to reduce the
budget to about $1,750 in hopes
that the "cat community" will
help feed the cats or adopt them.

written in the motion.
"The judge should have
declined to comment on the
case," Smith wrote. "The judge
went on to make statements
regarding sending a message not
to mess with wildlife and the pro-
tection of wildlife."
Chief Judge Sandra Taylor
will reassign the case, and the
date for the next hearing has yet
to be determined.
The motion to disqualify came
after a motion to continue a July 3
sentencing hearing Miller
approved. There was also a motion
to disqualify the prosecutor for
allegedly speaking publicly about
plea negotiations; that defense
motion was never acted upon.
The motion for Miller to
recuse himself says, "These pub-
lic comments on the case, which
has drawn a large amount of pub-
lic interest, much of which is
adverse to these defendants, has
placed the court's impartiality in
question or at least the appear-
ance that impartiality may be
compromised."
State Attorney's Office
spokesman Matthew Helmerich
said Miller didn't disclose his
reasons for recusing himself
when he granted the motion.
Smith believes his client has
been unfairly demonized by
overzealous public interest.
"This is blown way out of pro-:
portion," he said:f 'We are still
getting letters-likening these guys


to serial killers. Like I said before,
these guys are sportsmen and they
did consume the alligator."
The pair pleaded guilty to lur-
ing the protected alligator from the
Blue Hole with dead birds, shoot-
ing out its eyeballs with a pellet
gun and bludgeoning it to death
with a small baseball bat. The
crime occurred March 24, 2006.
The maximum sentence for
the third-degree felony is five
years in prison and/or up to
$1,000 in fines.
Milo's attorney, Nathan Eden,
agreed public interest is abnor-
mally harsh.
"There's a lot of misinforma-
tion flying around by the public,"
he said. "It's the same thing if
you caught and killed ajewfish or
a protected bird."
Two other people were
involved in the crime, Theo
Derleth, 19, of Marathon and an
unidentified juvenile. Both
received pretrial intervention.
Smith said he is seeking a sen-
tence of probation term and a "with-
hold of adjudication" for Goll.
At the July 3 sentencing hear-
ing, when Miller granted the con-
tinuance, Milo was wearing a
U.S. Army uniform and his com-
manding officer and top sergeant
were there for support. The uni-
form received some unfavorable
reactions from those present.
Smith said Goll also has an
interest in the military, but is now
looking at a job out of town to
?escape the notoriety that has
;comiedwith his case.

Willi firm on marine cut


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


The Monroe County
Commission decided against
reinstating the county's Marine
Resources Department Wednes-
day despite pleas from residents
to do so.
"I'm a little confused here,
because we're surrounded by
water," said Bruce Popham,
owner of the Marathon Boat Yard
and chairman of the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary
Advisory Council.
Popham said that with County
Administrator Tom Willi's disso-
lution of the three-person depart-
ment, "we have absolutely noth-
ing in this county devoted to the
water."
Last week, Willi fired two of
the three department employees,
Director George Garrett and
Resource Specialist Kim McGee.
Planner Rich Jones, will now be
under Growth Management.
Willi said dissolving the
department wasn't only to cut
money. He said Garrett and
McGee weren't pulling their
weight.
Commissioners Sonny
McCoy and Dixie Spehar and
Mario Di Gennaro voted against


reinstating the department.
Commissioners George Neugent,
who made the motion for rein-
statement, and Sylvia Murphy
vote to bring it back.
Garrett and McGee were
given 30-day termination notices
last week.
The national marine sanctuary
comprises all waters surrounding
the Keys. Sanctuary
Superintendent Dave Score sent a
letter to the County Commission
July 13 expressing his concern
about losing Marine Resources.
"'You should be aware that
Monroe County has close to
1,800 miles of shoreline where
residents and visitors live, work
and play," Score wrote.
Dissolving the department would
"clearly impact these ongoing
services and the county's ability
to help shape the direction of
marine resource management
strategies at the state and federal
level."
Score added the county is
often eligible for grant funding
the federal agency cannot get on
its own.
"We are changing the way we
handle marine projects," Willi
said. "We're not stopping the


projects. -
"This has nothing to do with
Marine Resources and the
employees," said Commissioner
Dixie Spehar. "This is what we're
going to be facing in the next sev-
eral weeks. We're going to have a
lot of changes that are going to be
very difficult."
One of those possible cuts
could be the Cooperative
Extension, Service, though Willi
assured the commission that
speculation about that depart-
ment's demise is a "Chicken
Little sky-is-falling tantrum."
He said getting rid of the serv-
ice is one of the alternatives, but
said he will not recommend it.
Extension Service Director
Doug Gregory said this week he
was told the commission would
consider eliminating the service.
The six-person staff provides a
variety of public services includ-
ing horticultural advice and con-
sumer services.
Community Services Director
Deb Barsell presented a proposed
budget for the Extension Service
that would roll it back from
$306,000 in 2006-07 to $238,000
for next year.
Barsell's proposed budget
leaves vacant a staff position
heading the 4-H youth program.


City sets lower millage rate


By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon City Council
on Tuesday approved a resolu-
tion declaring next year's mill-
age rate to be a maximum
1.5035, or $1.5035 per $1,000
of assessed property value.
The new rate is the result of
state-mandated tax reform legis-
lation calling for cuts in proper-
ty tax assessments. Marathon's
reduction was 5 percent, but
cuts ranged from 3 to 9 percent
statewide.
At the current year's millage
rate of 1.7896, the owner of a
$300,000 home in Marathon
would have paid $5,368 in
assessments.
According to the new rate,
next year's assessment would be
$4,510.
In the current year, with a
millage rate of 1.7896 percent
and assuming a 100 percent
return, the city collected i$4.92
million in ad valorem taxes.


City Finance Director Peter
Rosasco said the city budgets
for a 96 percent return under
"the assumption not everyone
pays."
The proposed millage rate for
2007-08 would generate $4.73
million in assessments, account-
ing for 3.78 percent of the state-
mandated 5 percent reduction.
Rosasco said the other 1.22
percent is accounted for by a
calculated allowed compound
annual growth rate, which is a
provision of the legislation.
"1.5035 [percent] is the pro-
posed millage we set to apply
with the exact requirement of
the house bill," Rosasco said.
But in all likelihood, the
actual adopted rate will be even
lower than the one proposed.
Rosasco says that in the past, the
number has always gone down.
"You usually; go in with the
highest number because it is
easier to decrease it and difficult


to increase it," he said.
Property taxes are based on
county-provided figures for the
taxable value of the property in
the city.
This year's taxable value in
Marathon is $3.148 billion, an
increase of 14.5 percent from
2006.
Vice Mayor Marilyn Tempest
has worked with city staff as a
budget liaison for the past two
years. She said she fully expects
the adopted millage rate to be
lower than proposed.
"Our goal is to go more than
5 percent and the department
heads have done well to achieve
savings so we can have a tighter
budget," she said.
Tempest said ideas such as a
wage freeze aside from a cost-
of-living adjustment and
changes to the city health plan
have been floated as ways to
save additional money.
She said there are no plans to
reduce positions,

Swimmer's Ear Is Y

Easy to Prevent patient Care Comes First"

If you are prone to infections, use an ear plug when you bathe
or swim. Swimmer's ear drops or alcohol drops (Swim-EAR(r))
used in the ear after water exposure followed by drying the ear.
with a hair dryer held at arms length will often help keep the
ear free of moisture
Do not insert instruments, scratch, or use cotton swabs in the ears.
Try to keep the ear free of wax. This may require visits to the
doctor to have your ears cleaned.
If you already have an ear infection, or if you have a hole in
your eardrum, or if you have had ear surgery or ear tubes, first
consult your doctor prior to swimming and before you use any
type of ear drop.
A preventative ear drop solution can be cheaply and easily made
by mixing equal parts of rubbing alcohol and white vinegar (50:50
mixture). This solution will increase the rate of evaporation of
water in the ear canal and has antibacterial properties. Using this
solution to rinse the ear before and after water exposure can serve
as a protective measure against infection.
Mineral oil ear drops can be used to protect the ear from water
when a dry crusty skin condition exists.

Leaner budgets come in


But Higgs may
go to Cabinet
if raises denied
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Monroe County Property
Appraiser Ervin Higgs says his
staffers deserve a cost-of-living
increase, even if the county is
making severe cutbacks and
he's threatening to go over the
County Commission's head to
the state level if they don't get
it.
The commission met
Thursday to go over proposed
budgets for the constitutional
officers and county depart-
ments to see where they can
pare back to comply with a
state tax-reform mandate.
It calls for a county budget
for next year that is 5 percent
lower than this year's budget.
Higgs, who oversees more
than 50 employees, said it's
unfair to expect mid-level
county staffers to bear the brunt
of the tax cuts.
"We're asking a very diffi-
cult thing of the employees,"
Higgs said. "The only ones who
are losing out here are the ones
that work the hardest."
State legislation mandates
local governments come in
with budgets for 2007-08 that is


lower than the current year. For
Monroe County that means par-
ing 5 percent off the $83.7 in
property taxes expected to be
collected this year.
County Administrator Tom
Willi has asked each of the
county's departments to roll
their budgets back to 5 percent
lower than the current year.
Thursday was the first of two
budget meetings in which each
department head presented
their budget request for 2007-
08.
"It bothers me that I'm ask-
ing my people not to have a 3
percent cost-of-living salary
increase," Higgs told the com-
mission. "It's not fair and it's
not right."
Higgs said his department
returns an average of $200,000
to county coffers at the end of
the year, money that has been
budgeted but goes unspent.
"I would like for you people
to have Tom [Willi] go back
and spend extra time and look
at the budget so these people
can get a decent raise," he said,
vowing to take the issue to Gov.
Charlie Crist and the Florida
Cabinet if the County
Commission doesn't approve
the increase.
Overall, the Appraiser's
Office is requesting $70,000
more than the $3.87 million


2006-07 budget.
Other departments that pre-
sented their budgets:
+ Elections Supervisor
Harry Sawyer offered to
remove proposed 3 percent
salary increases for his 10
employees. His budget request,
including the raises, came to
$1.49 million. He said it's high-
er than the current year, but that
the- presidential primary in
2008 will add operational costs
to his department.
The Tourist Development
Council proposes an opera-
tional budget of $22.4 million,
a decrease of about $1 million
over 2006-07, Director Harold
Wheeler said. He added that the
TDC is expecting flat revenue
of $13.9 million collection
from the three-penny bed tax.
Public Works Director
Dent Pierce proposes a budget
he says is more than 8 percent
lower than the current year, a
cut of $3.7 million. But he said
cuts in staffing would leave his
department unable to provide
staffers for some of the new
county buildings that will like-
ly come on line next year,
including the new justice center
in Key West.
The County Commission
will reconvene to hear from
more departments, including
the Sheriff's Office, Monday at
9 a.m. at the Marathon
Government Center.


Seborrheic dermatiti .Ind,
eczema can both affect the
ear canal. There is really n.:,
cure for this problem, but it
can be made tolerable
with the use of steroid
drops and creams
People with these

prone to
infections as


acute
well.

Hendrick bid for new trial denied


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


U.S. District Court Judge
Shelby Highsmith on Monday
denied a motion by Monroe
County's -former county attor-
ney for a new trial.
Jim Hendrick was convicted
in February on felony charges of
obstructing justice and witness
tampering stemming from a
1997 bribe paid to then-County
Commissioner Jack London.
In May, Highsmith sentenced
Henrick to five years probation
and fined him $50,000.
A federal jury in Key West
found Hendrick guilty of con-
spiracy to obstruct justice,
obstruction of justice and two
counts of witness tampering.
The, co ictioin came on the.
heels of a lengthy FBI investiga-


tion that uncovered a $29,000
bribe paid to London. The
money allegedly helped bring
about eventual approval of the
stalled redevelopment of the
former Hall's Fish Camp in
Marathon.
Political consultant Randall
Hilliard, who paid the bribe
after collecting $82,500 in fees
from developer Marvin
Rappaport, testified with immu-
nity that Hendrick and London
orchestrated bribe.
London was arrested a year
before Hendrick and was
expected to be the government's
key witness against Hendrick.
But London died in November;
he was facing three years in
,prison after pleading guilty to
filing a false tax return for not


reporting the bribe.
Rappaport wasn't charged
due to a statute of limitations.
In March, Hendrick .attorney
Ed Shohat filed a motion
requesting a new trial. It says
the jury heard inadmissible tes-
timony and hearsay evidence.
In the meantime, the U.S gov-
ernment has appealed Hendrick's
sentence. U.S. Attorney
Alexander Acosta, who sought
prison time in the case, said in
June he is appealing the sentence
to the l1th Circuit Court of
Appeal.
In addition to his probation
and fine, Hendrick must perform
2,500 hours of community serv-
ice. He must be employed for the
duration of his probation, though
he cannot consult, lobby or work
for .r ni:ne in government.

Basset is newest college trustee


Hospital CEO
knows the ins,
outs of FKCC
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

An unfamiliar face will
grace the table at the Florida
Keys Community College
board of trustees meeting
Monday at 5 p.m. in the board-
room at the Stock Island cam-
pus.
Gov. Charlie Crist
announced Friday he appointed
Kim Bassett, chief executive
officer of Fishermen's Hospital
in Marathon, to replace Realtor
Brian Schmitt, whose term
expired.. Bassett's started
Tuesday and runs until May 31,
2011.
"The governor appreciated
the perspective that Kimberly


will, bring
from the
Middle Keys
S region, as well
as her demon-
strated interest'
iin issues with
Florida Keys
Community
BASSETr C o 11 e g e,"
Crist spokes-
woman Erin Isaac said.
Prior to Bassett, Crist
appointed Key Largo dive cap-
tain Spencer Slate and reap-
pointed attorney Ed Scales of
Key West.
Bassett, 42, started her Keys
nursing career as a staff nurse
in 1990 at Lower Keys Medical
Center. From there, she went on
to work in the Emergency
Room and finally as chief nurs-
ing officer. Her first position as
a nurse was in Springfield, Mo.,


in 1986.
Bassett is a member of the
Greater Marathon Chamber of
Commerce board of directors,
Monroe County Trauma
Committee Board and the
American Nurses Association.
She also serves on the board of
directors for the United Way of
Monroe County.
She was even a student at the
Keys college for a stint, while
finishing up her nursing degree.
Nowadays she lectures for
nursing classes and takes pot-
tery classes.
"The college is one of the
best things going for this com-
munity," Basset said. "It's like
a best kept secret and it
shouldn't be a secret."
To be considered by the gov-
ernor, Bassett was required to
fill out a "horrendous" applica-
tion.
"You have to pretty much
sign in blood," she said. "It was


a really lengthy and in-depth
application of my background.
I sent it off and the governor
spoke to [state Rep.] Ron
Saunders and the mayor and
they said their thoughts on the
position."
She also mentioned that
someone sent a letter on her
behalf to governor, which is
also a factor Crist uses in mak-
ing appointments.
"We're thrilled with the
appointment because she's
from Marathon and she repre-
sents that area," college
spokeswoman Lydia Estonez
said. "She has been highly,
highly supportive of the nurs-
ing program. She brings a depth
of knowledge that sometimes
couldn't come from other board
members."
New Chairman Ed Scales
will lead Monday's meeting for
the first time.

Nurses to take flight


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

There's a chance that county
jobs may be cut and a lot of
vacant jobs left unfilled because
of budget cuts, but Monroe
County Sheriff Rick Roth agreed
Wednesday to fund four positions
that will kepp the Lower Keys
TraumaStar emergency helicop-
ter flying.
Roth agreed to pay the first
year of salaries for four nurses to
staff the service out of the fine
and forfeiture fund, a move that
won't cost county taxpayers a
dime.
"This gets the project going in
the right direction," County
Commissioner George Neugent
said during the commission's reg-
ular monthly meeting Wednesday
in Key West.
"It's not costing us anything
right now, so let's go with it,"
Mayor Mario Di Gennaro said.
The TraumaStar service has
come under fire recently since a
private company is competing to
provide the same service.
The county paid more than
$3.7 million for a refurbished
1982 Sikorsky, which began fly-
ing in November; it replaced the
previous TraumaStar.
Pilots have been trained, and
in May the County Commission
voted unanimously to hire an air
medical-services chief for
$100,000 a year.


Roth said his office would
fund the nursing staff until the
county completes a request for
proposals that would give private
companies the chance to bid on
the emergency service.
Ken Grimes, regional vice
president for Life Net, has been
telling the county his company
can provide the service and save
taxpayers money.
In other business Wednesday,
the commission:
+ Agreed to take a closer look
at a contract with the Monroe
County School Board that com-
mits the county to paying utility
costs for the next 20 years for a
park at Sugarloaf School at
$130,000 annually. County
Attorney Suzanne Hutton is
reviewing the potential public use
versus school use.
Approved a resolution ask-
ing the city of Key .West to deed
the land under the Stock Island
animal shelter to the county.
Officials with the Florida Keys
Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals, which oper-
ates the shelter, and the county
are raising money to rebuild the
failing structure, and the commis-
sion agreed it would make sense
for the county to own the land
underneath.
Renewed a contract for
attorney Jerry Coleman to advise
the county on affordable housing.

Map changes go before City Council


It's first step
before any
new zoning
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
is scheduled to meet in regular
session at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at
the Marathon Government
Center. Agenda items include:
Twelve ordinances
requesting amendments to the
city future land-use, or FLUM,
maps.
"What they are is changes
that the applicants would like
to make in the way of a zoning
change, but it first has to go as
a FLUM change," city
Planning Director Fred Gross
said. "These are changes that
would normally cost money.
However, since some are


changes we would make any-
way, we're putting it through
and it won't be a charge to cer-
tain applicants."
Gross said the county map
had errors when the city took it
over, which is to be expected
with a map that size.
"A lot of the people that
want these changes contend
they are errors and they are
right," he said. "We're just
going to present them.
Gross said it will be recom-
mended council approve all
but one of the FLUM changes,
three lots on 106th Street. The
property is designated residen-
tial medium and a FLUM-
change application was made
to make it mixed-use commer-
cial.
A resolution approving
the interlocal agreement by
which Marathon will provide


fire rescue and emergency
medical services to Key
Colony Beach.
The councils from both
cities met June 27 and agreed
in principle to the parameters
on a three-year contract.
Key Colony Beach had been
seeking to pay a percentage of
Marathon Fire Rescue's oper-
ating costs based on building
values only, while Marathon
officials preferred the contract
remain based on taxable land
value.
In the end, the two sides
agreed the percentage would
be based on "just value" of the
property, which means the tax-
able value of the land minus
homestead or any other

standards to identify wet-
lands," city biologist Darla
Williams said.
The ordinances could

"The County Commission

treatment plant, City Manager
Mike Puto said. "We're work-

Puto said the trench work
cost roughly $600,000.

The city has been working

Puto said the city is also
investigating whether the plant
could be expanded to accom-

The long-running lease-agree-
ment dispute between the city of
Marathon and the Marathon Yacht
Club is nearing a conclusion.
The City Council is scheduled
to vote on a resolution at its
Tuesday meeting approving an
amended and restated lease with
the club located on 33rd Street
bayside.
The city assumed ownership
of the Yacht Club from the coun-
ty after incorporation in 1999, but
is forced to pay Monroe County
real estate taxes on the property
because it functions as a private
club.
Properties used for public or
municipal purposes, such as the
City of Marathon Marina and
community park, are exempt
from taxes.
Key Colony Beach Mayor and
Yacht Club Commodore Clyde
Burnett said the city has paid
approximately $53,000 in taxes
on the property and that it may
not have done its "due diligence"
before acquiring the lease.
"When the city took over the
lease from the county, they did


not know they would be taxed,"
Burnett said. "I don't think they
checked that out going in."
The two sides agreed that'in
exchange for the club paying all
back and future taxes, as well as
the cost. of the bay-bottom lease,
the city would agree to the land
lease and bay-bottom lease run-
ning concurrently.
Burnett said the bay-bottom
lease starts at $2,600 per year and
real estate taxes this year on the
property were $16,500. He said
having the leases run concurrent-
ly would allow the club's 18
docks to generate some revenue.
Marathon City Councilman
Don Vasil said "both entities have
each other over a barrel."
If the lease were to expire, the
Yacht Club would be unable to
utilize the dock space. But the
city would then be forced to pay
the annual real estate taxes.
"The bay-bottom lease for the
dock space is up in two years and
the club would like to continue
their service," Vasil said. "The
dock space is an important part of
what they offer."

Pigeon Fen


Burnett said he felt the city
may have taken the rights to the
dock away if they did not agree to
pay the back taxes.
"A lot of our members say, 'So
what, what are you going to do
with them,'" Bumett said, noting
electric, water and access to the
docks all come from the walkway.
Both agreed the new lease is a
win-win for both parties and Vasil
agreed with Burnett that past
councils may not have examined
the long-term effects of acquiring
properties such as the Yacht Club,
Boot Key Bridge and parks.
"In its desire to control as
much as possible, prior councils
have taken on properties that
might have been left to the coun-
ty," Vasil said. "I'm not so sure it
was such a good idea."
Vasil said he feels the future of
Marathon is in the harbor and that
in the coming months, he will
unveil plans for "a world-class
marina capable of attracting yachts-
men from across the country."
"I want to put a bunch of slips
in the harbor to accommodate 40-
and 50-foot boats," Vasil said. "It
would bring in a tremendous
amount of revenue."


contract delayed


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

A vote to accept a bid from
Paradise Divers of Big Pine Key
to provide ferry service to Pigeon
Key was delayed Wednesday, but
Monroe County Engineer David
Koppel said the hold-up is just to
finalize contract details.
Three companies submitted
bids to run the three-year service
to the island: Paradise Divers,
Cay Clubs and Starfish Swim and
Snorkel Inc.
County Mayor Mario Di
Gennaro asked Koppel to confirm
that Paradise Divers got the bid,
joking that a conspiracy to get Cay
Clubs the bid "didn't work."
After the first round of bids
was thrown out in March, the
rumor mill had Di Gennaro con-
spiring to have the job rebid after
Cay Clubs didn't initially bid.
Koppel said that in reality, the
first five bids were thrown out
because none complied with all
of the county's requirements.
Paradise Divers, which also


bid during the first round, runs
two 30-foot Island Hoppers.
Though the service could begin
as -early as Aug. 1, the delay in
contract approval could push that
off some, Assistant County
Engineer Judy Clarke said.
Since September, the county
has been aware the Florida
Department of Transportation
could close the old Seven Mile
Bridge leading to Pigeon Key at
any time, cutting off vehicular
access to the historic island.
Temporary service will pro-
vide hourly trips to the island.
Supplies will also be ferried. The
bid specified the winning bidder
be able to ferry large groups for
special events on the island,
which housed Henry Flagler rail-
road workers and is on the
National Register of Historic
Places.
DOT has committed $750,000
over three years to pay for the
temporary ferry.

Symroski confirms he's in race

By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


He has yet to finish his paper-
work for qualifying, but former
Key West Planning Director Ty
Symroski says he's ready to
enter the political arena.
Symroski said he's decided to
run for the Utility Board of Key
West's Group 1 seat in October
because he "was just excited by
the positive comments from a
number of people."


He said he read an inspiring
news story in the Financial
Times about the former chief of
Exxon working to eliminate car-
bon emissions, and said that also
increased his desire to run.
"I want to set the course for
the next decade," he added.
Symroski is in the running
with City Commissioner Harry
Bethel, who isn't running for re-
election to that body, and
Realtor Charles Lee for the posi-
tion being vacated by Robert
Padron, who has decided not to
run.
Symroski said he wants to

Wisteria vote still has chance


Voter petitions
could put it
on the ballot
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

There's still a possibility a
non-binding referendum to gauge
Key West voters' stance on
whether Wisteria Island should
be annexed to later morph into a
residential community could
appear on the Oct. 2 election bal-
lot, even though the proposition
has been deemed needless by
some community members and
city commissioners.
"The people can get in on the
island referendum," said
Commissioner Bill Verge, who
sponsored a failed resolution to
put the referendum on the ballot.
"They have about 20 days to get
[signatures] to [county Elections
Supervisor] Harry Sawyer to put
it on there."
According to city code, 10
percent of qualified voters would
have to sign petitions to get the
issue on the ballot. That's 1,526
signatures, as there were 15,260
qualified voters last year, accord-
ing to the Elections Office.
Sawyer said a third person must
be present to vouch for the
authenticity of signatures.


Qualifying to get on the ballot
runs from Aug. 13 to 17.
A majority of residents who
spoke at the July 17 City
Commission meeting said they
favor the non-binding referen-
dum because it would give them
a chance to express their opin-
ions, but a few audience mem-
bers said they thought it was
pointless, calling it a dead issue.
No action could have come
from the referendum itself; it
merely would have documented
voters' opinions.
Verge said putting the referen-
dum on the ballot would be cost-
free since an election is sched-
uled, anyway.
Tuesday, commissioners Jose
Menendez, Harry Bethel and Dan
Kolhage, and Mayor Morgan
McPherson, voted against the
resolution. Verge and commis-
sioners Clayton Lopez and Mark
Rossi voted for it.
Last week, FEB Corp., which
owns the island, withdrew its
request to the city for annexation
that would've led to develop-
ment.
Roger Bernstein of FEB Corp.
said the withdrawal came after
misinformation about the island
spread through the city.

Public showers get the


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


With Key West's unforgiving
budget crunch comes many sac-
rifices. For some, that sacrifice
is a nice, hot shower.
According to Assistant City
Manager John Jones, a shower
trailer at the Police Department
on North Roosevelt Boulevard,
installed in May 2003 and used
mostly by the homeless, was
shut down last week.
That means the only place for
the homeless to shower is at the
shelter at the Stock Island
Detention Center, a considerable
distance away if you don't have
a car.
A survey at the shower trailer
conducted May 2 by the Florida
Keys Outreach Coalition, an
advocacy group for the home-
less, revealed that the day the
survey was conducted, 50 of 37


people questioned were
employed.
The survey also indicated that
20 percent of people using the
showers weren't even homeless.
Some people approached were
painters, boat captains, a chef,
even a retail manager, Outreach
Coalition Executive Director
Stephen Braddock said.
Jones said that based on utili-
ty reports, he's counted as many
as 1,100 showers a month.
But given the city's tight
budget year ahead, Jones said
it's not fiscally realistic to keep
showers at the Police
Department. There's also a
shortage of parking spaces in
that area, and the space is need-
ed to create more parking for the
department's new mobile-com-
mand vehicle.
"We'll open them back up if


nered with FEB.
"The developers wanted to
take it off the table so it wouldn't
become an election issue, but it's
already become an election
issue," Verge said.
Also Tuesday:
The commission approved
a $7.9 million waste transfer
facility on Rockland Key that
will be built by Douglas N.
Higgins Inc.
The building would replace
the current facility on Stock
Island. Public Works Director
R.B. Havens and General
Services Director David
Fernandez call the existing site
inefficient.
The bid was originally
approved at $8.3 million under
the condition the city would
negotiate a lower price.
The project is still too costly
in some. people's eyes, but
Kolhage was the only vote
against the facility.
Many residents and members
of environmental group Last
Stand sided with Kolhlge, saying
they would rather see a waste-to-
energy plant constructed.
Such a facility could cost any-
where from $30 million to $50
million, officials said.
The commission OK'd

we can find some money," Jones
said. "We might open them up
again later on,, but right now
were lucky to even have the
shelter open."
The Salvation Army rented
'the trailer to the city, and the
Police Department oversees it.
The cost to operate the 12-
shower trailer totaled $50,000 -
money Jones said the city needs,
what with dire budget proposals
presented by City Manager Jim
Scholl.
Jones said people looking to
clean up can travel to the Stock
Island facility on College Road,
at the Keys Overnight
Temporary Shelter.
The showers on Stock Island
open at 5 a.m. and close at 9
a.m., Jones said. The shelter is
closed at 7 a.m. and reopens at 9
p.m. Inmates from the neighbor-
ing jail clean the facility during
the day.::

Residents to get say on Navy maps


Heightened
noise levels
anger many
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


The Monroe County Com-
mission took its first step toward
adopting a new set of maps that
delineate noise and danger
boundaries around Naval Air
Station Key West.
In a unanimous vote Wednes-
day, the commission agreed to


begin the process of adopting the
Navy's Air Installation
Compatible Use Zones so near-
by residents have ample chance
to weigh in on the issue.
The so-called AICUZ recom-
mends the kinds of land use the
county should allow around the
air station based upon safety and
noise levels, base spokesman
Jim Brooks said. Because it is a
zoning tool, Navy officials say
it's important for the county to
adopt the document.
Such documents have been


around since the 1970s, but the
updated version has a lot of near-
by residents unhappy about
flight patterns that bring state-of-
the-art Navy jets right over resi-
dential neighborhoods, especial-
ly Geiger Key and south Stock
Island.
"You can't have a conversa-
tion outside because the F-18s
are so loud," Commissioner
George Neugent said of Stock
Island. "We have somewhat of
an incompatible use here."
Tamarac Park resident Paul
Caruso said a large part of the
noise problem is the new air-


Tripp to plead guilty


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Former Key West business-
man Paul Tripp is set to plead
guilty to making and subscrib-
ing a false income-tax return
at his July 31 hearing before
U.S. District Judge Patricia A.
Seitz in Miami.
His sentencing is scheduled
shortly thereafter, Aug. 27.
The charge stems back to
2000, when Tripp filed a false
federal individual tax return.
According to court docu-
ments, Tripp was connected to
Marc Harris, "a notorious off-
shore tax shelter promoter


who assisted U.S. business-
men in evading their income
taxes."
Tripp apparently reported
about $1.2 million in taxable
income, when in reality the
amount "was substantially in
excess" of that, according to
court documents.
They show documents
show the maximum penalty
for such a crime is three years
imprisonment.
Tripp and his attorney have
asked the government to pre-
pare a "pre-plea presentence
investigation report" for the


court.
Tripp's attorney, Ed
Shohat, couldn't be reached
for comment Friday.
Tripp opened P.T.'s Late
Night Bar & Grill on Caroline
Street in 1986, and owned a
slew of restaurants along the
Key West Bight such as the
Half Shell Raw Oyster Bar.
Bobby Mongelli now owns
P.T.'s, along with the Geiger
Key Sfiokehouse, which Tripp
used to co-own.
Tripp also owned the
Sailfish Bar and Restaurant on
Stock Island, which has
closed.


craft, Superhornets, are drasti-
cally louder than their predeces-
sors.
Additionally, the new con-
tours expanded the old noise
boundaries, encompassing a lot
of homes that were not previous-
ly within them, and those home-
owners are not happy.
"Homes not previously
included for over 30 years are
now being forced to accept a
Navy policy of social bigotry,"
Caruso said.
"I'm affected by this direct-
ly," Stock Island resident Diane
Beruldsen said. "I would not
have bought this property if I'd
have known it was directly in
this new fly zone."
Commissioner Dixie Spehar
said she wants the county
Property Appraiser's Office to
include in its database which
houses lie within high-noise


contours, but some residents
worry it could affect property
values.
Growth Management
Director Drew Trivette told the
commission the new maps have
been in the works since 2004
when the county, municipalities
and state Department of
Community Affairs met with
Navy officials regarding the
updated maps.
"It's my recommendation that
we in no way agree with this
document at this time," Trivette
said, adding that if the county
adopts the maps, it may be tak-
ing on enforcement responsibili-
ty, which in turn could leave it
open to land-takings lawsuits.
Spehar asked NAS Com-
mander J.R. Brown to organize a
series of public workshops so
residents can give input.

total. But the majority of the audi-
ence proved anxious, voting for a
more "comprehensive" syllabus.
"If it takes nine weeks, we're
not going to be ready for the hurri-
canes," Falk said. "I would think
most people want it concentrated."
McPherson explained the
most valuable post-hurricane
resource is people, as technology
dies in the midst of such disas-
ters. For that reason, communi-
cating with commissioners and
residents within the CERT mem-
bers' district, as well as other
districts, is essential. Without
that communication it can get
nasty, McPherson said, when
one district has fresh water, for
instance, and another does not.
"You're not only ambassa-
dors during the good times,"
McPherson said, "but also, the
most difficult of times."
Flowers noted communication
was a big problem during 2005's
Hurricane Wilma Wilma, and that
a CERT team would be responsi-
ble for improving it by establish-
ing three liaisons services,
information and logistics.
Flowers said the question that
should be on every CERT team
member's mind is, "How quickly
can we put our city back together?"
Marston mentioned that most
cities in Florida already have
CERT teams and starting one in
Key West is. long overdue.
Early Alert, a disaster-
response entity, is helping with
the effort and certified police
and firefighters will teach the
courses, which will tackle issues
such as preparedness, basic fire
suppression and the post-disaster
emotional environment.
Marston hopes the program
will restore what he calls Key
West's "sense of community."
City Affordable Housing
Coordinator Paul Clayton, who
hosted the event, said the classes
would not be a "lecture kind of
thing."
Marston agreed, adding they.
would be more hands-on.
"You can't learn CPR with a
video...," he said.
Also, with the addition of a
Geographical Information System
(GIS), a computer system that
stores geographically related
information, they will be able to
pinpoint which areas of the' dis-
tricts have special-needs residents
who, for example, are disabled or
don': ov. n a car, so they will be
able to get the resources they need
easier.

MARC responds


to budget cutbacks


Thrift store
opens to create
more revenue
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbumie@keysreporter.com


Federal and state cutbacks
have forced a local nonprofit
group for special-needs citizens
to find creative ways to replace
needed funds.


The Monroe Association for
Retarded Citizens recently
opened a thrift store at mile
marker 90 on Plantation Key,
next to Coral Shores High
School. The store, the
ReMARCable Bazaar, raises
money for the association and
also teaches life, vocational and
social skills to clients with
developmental disabilities,
MARC staff says..


Upper Keys MARC Director
Michelle Snyder said the idea
for the store came about after
cutbacks in government funding
resulted in the Upper Keys
office borrowing money from
MARC's Key West office.
A series of successful yard
sales put on by MARC clients
and staff gave Snyder the idea to
open a permanent thrift store,
she said.

MARC retail operation expands to Upper Keys


MARC / From 20

During hours of operation,
ReMARCable Bazaar is manned
by groups made up of one
MARC staff member and six
clients. Staff members help
clients choose their jobs and set
weekly goals.
If clients meet their goals,
they earn a paycheck for their
work. If they surpass their goals,
:.hey become eligible for pay
increases. Snyder says this helps
MARC clients develop valuable
skills applicable in the outside
world.
"When donations come in,
the staff helps the clients figure
out what to do with the items. As
well as bringing in good money,
it offers amazing teaching tools
for our clients: how to handle
money, how to clean a rug.
When they're ready, we take
them out into the community to
get a job somewhere else,"
Snyder said.
In addition to its low prices,
Snyder says the positive atmos-
phere of the store helps draw
customers.
"When people come here to
shop, the clients are here. They
see the interaction between
clients and staff and see the
clients doing the work. It's very
relaxed. It's fun," she said.
ReMARCable Bazaar is open
for business weekdays from 10
a.m. to 2 p.m. Snyder hopes to
increase hours beginning in
August, but says that can only
happen with increased support
from the community.
"I want to get the word out.
We've got some amazing stuff.
Also, since we're a nonprofit,
anybody that donates the items
can get a tax-deductible
receipt."

The MARC Thrift Store has opened in the Upper Keys, providing
life skills for MARC clients as well as raising much-needed
funds for the organization.


A ReMARCable Bazaar rum-
mage sale is scheduled today
from 8 a.m. to noon. Sale items
will include clothing, home
goods, jewelry and more.

Fundraisers
MARC holds various


fundraisers throughout the year
to bolster its operating budget. It
seeks the support of Keyswide
businesses to sponsor the
events.
Next on the calendar is the
inaugural Pig-Off to Benefit Pro
Start and MARC.


The event is to be held at the
Green Parrot, 601 Whitehead St.
in Key West Sunday from noon
to 7 p.m.
As part of the Green Parrot
Off The Wall Sidewalk Art
Show (part of Key West's annu-
al Hemingway Days) Potter Jay
Gogin's Mud Pi Studio will
compete with Restaurant Store
owners Richard Tallmadge in a
pig cook-off.
Gogin, using his Cuban box,
will cook a whole pig against
Tallmadge's "Big Green Egg,"
which will cook pork shoulders.
A tasting will then take place
with proceeds going to the Key
West High School Pro Start hos-
pitality program and MARC.
On July 28, MARC's annual
ice cream social is a family
affair.
And with the price of gas
these days, a brand new moped
might be a cost-efficient way to


get around.
Whoever holds the winning
raffle ticket at the ice cream
social win go home with a 2007
Yamaha C3 Moped donated by
Yamaha Florida Keys Cycle.
"In an amazing turn of
events, a friend of MARC called
to say they had won this brand
new moped and they wanted to
pass their luck forward and give
it to us to raffle off as a fundrais-
er," MARC spokesman Gordon
Ross said.
The ReMARCable Ben &
Jerry's Ice Cream Social is at the
Old Harris School, 812 Southard
St., Key West, at 6:30 p.m.
Raffle tickets can be bought
at the MARC Plant Store, 812
Southard St., the Restaurant
Store, 1111 Eaton St., or at TIB
Bank next to the main Key West
post office.

Food prices still rising


So some shoppers
are changing
buying habits
McClatchy Tribune


Milk is $4 a gallon.
Cereal is $4 a box.
And an orange for your
lunchbox can run $1.50 or more.
Food prices are rising faster
than they have in 17 years, and
there's no relief in sight.
Economists had expected a 4
percent increase this year we
reached that in May.
No one is predicting prices
that will make you hit the panic
button. But when you add the
higher grocery bill to everything
else that costs more gas, util-
ities and medical care it's an
unwelcome change for most
families. -
To compensate, many con-
sumers are making changes:
buying more generic products,
switching to cheaper meats or
simply cutting out some of the
extras they normally buy.
Wake Forest, N.C., resident
Margie Kishpaugh cares for her
three children and three others
she is watching for friends this
summer. The six children go
through a gallon of milk a day.
Kishpaugh has found ways to
stretch her already-tight budget.
She uses coupons, buys items on
sale and stocks up on products
when they are cheap.


"The last time it was on sale
... I must have bought at least 20
packages of chicken breasts,"
she said.. "We eat chicken almost
every day."
Chicken prices have risen,
too, along with.prices on every-
thing from eggs to steaks.
Several factors are boosting
costs. Blame bad weather in
Florida for higher produce prices
and blame higher oil and gas
prices for just about everything
else..
It takes energy to get food to
the table, from fertilizing it to
harvesting, packaging and trans-
porting. it. Manufacturers are
passing those increases on to
consumers.
Higher oil prices have had
another consequence: There's a
national push to boost produc-
tion of ethanol, which is made
from corn, as an alternative fuel.
That in turn has increased the
demand for corn and led to high-
er prices. The price of a bushel
of corn nearly doubled to $4
from late 2005 to early 2007.
Those increases have hit farmers
who use corn as feed, cereal
.manufacturers and even soda
makers (corn syrup is used as a
sweetener).
There could be some relief on
that front; at least. At the end of
June, the U.S. Department of
Agriculture reported that the
nation's farmers dedicated more
acres than expected to growing

corn something that will help
alleviate some of the pressure on
the corn market.
However, that announcement
had a negative side: More acres
for corn means fewer acres of
soybeans, wheat and other crops.

The breakdown
If that's too big-picture, just
take a look at the price of a box
of cereal.
At first, manufacturers and
retailers seemed to be absorbing
the higher cost of corn and gas,
but they were really just working
through their. inventory of
already-made product, said
Brian Todd, president of the
Food Institute, a New Jersey
group that studies food prices.
Cereal "has a longer shelf
life, so it takes longer to filter
through," he said.
Now a box of cereal can easi-
ly cost $4.
At the end of June, cereal
maker General Mills debuted
new boxes for Cheerios, Chex
and Wheaties. The prices are
slightly lower, but the boxes
shrank and the price per ounce
went higher. General Mills
spokeswoman Kirstie Foster
would not say specifically how
much the prices increased, say-
ing only that the percentage
increase per ounce was "a low
single-digit increase."
Foster said the company is
responding to market conditions
and competitors. "Most of our
competitors have already
increased prices," she said.
Such changes might seem
abrupt because so many prod-
ucts are affected. But historical-
ly it's not that bad, Todd said.
The last time the price of gro-
ceries went up more than 4 per-
cent was 1990, when they rose
6.5 percent. But prices jumped
as much as 16.4 percent in 1973
and 14.9 percent in 1974 when
gas was in short supply.
In a survey released in May
that focused on the effect of
higher gas prices, consumers
told the Food Marketing
Institute that they were changing
their behaviors. Sixty-nine per-
cent said they are eating out less
often, and 65 percent said they
were purchasing fewer luxury
items, institute spokesman Bill
Greer said.
"Even high-income shoppers
are gi\ in that response as well,"
he said. 'So it's cutting across
income levels."

A second 'Independence Day'


Keys council
marks ADA's
17th anniversary
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Cindy McKnight does all the
same things the rest of us do.
She is married with two
young children, and every day
she makes her way to the
Guidance Clinic of the Middle
Keys in Marathon, where she
works as a discharge planner. In
the evenings, she goes home to
take care of her family.
The fact she does all of this
without her sight hardly ever
crosses her mind anymore.
"I never say to myself I can't
do something," McKnight said
with an infectious smile at the
clinic. "I just say to myself, I
may have to adjust to doing
something you are doing in a
different way."
McKnight says the life she is
able to lead today is due in large
part to the Americans with
Disabilities Act of 1990.
Thursday marks the 17th
anniversary of enactment of the
law guaranteeing equal opportu-
nities for disabled people in
employment, public accommo-
dations, transportation, govern-
ment services and telecommuni-
cations.
McKnight, a councilwoman
with the Florida Keys Council
for People with Disabilities, is
planning the organization's
annual celebration commemo-
rating the enactment.
"The ADA has been able to
change people's lives by allow-
ing people with disabilities to be
a part of the workforce," she
said, "and allowing people to
see [those] with disabilities in a
different light ... seeing them as
equals."
The event is open to the pub-
lic and will take place from
12:30 to 2:30 p.m. at the Stanley
Switlik Elementary School cafe-
teria. McKnight has invited
groups from across the county to
join in the festivities.
"What we've turned it into is
a celebration of the ADA along
with awareness of agencies and
organizations that assist people
with disabilities," she explained.


Michelle Wisniewski is
chairwoman for the disabilities
council, which puts on the annu-
al celebration. She said she gave
the ball to McKnight and told
her to run with it.
Wisniewski, who uses a


and that was what it was intend-
ed to do," she said.
Wisniewski jokes that a
bumper sticker she once had
best symbolizes the law's
impact on the disabled commu-
nity: "ADA ... boldly going
where everyone has gone
before."


Cindy McKnight demonstrates how to use a Braille writer, her
equivalent of a typewriter, at the Guidance Clinic of the
Middle Keys. McKnight is arranging a celebration hosted by
the Florida Keys Council for People with Disabilities that will
take place Thursday at Stanley Switlik Elementary School in
Marathon from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.


wheelchair, said the disabled
-community celebrates the
ADA's anniversary because "it
is our second Independence
Day."
"It levels the playing field


Stan Darczuk, who also uses
a wheelchair and is also a mem-
ber of the disabilities council,
called the ADA "an evolutionary
process." He feels it provides a
necessary legal framework pro-


claiming the disabled have
rights, but that real progress
comes at a slower pace.
Racial "minorities have had
civil rights for a longer period of
time and I don't think all the
issues there have been
resolved," Darczuk said. "It's
slowly changing. I see positive
changes everywhere."
A proud Conch born at
Fishermen's Hospital in
Marathon, McKnight attended
Switlik as a child. It was in the
summer between third and
fourth grade, at age 8, that she
lost her sight.
The county's solution to pro-
viding McKnight an education
was to send a tutor to her home
for one hour twice a week. The
rest of the time she spent at
home with a babysitter.
Dissatisfied with her situa-
tion, McKnight's mother sent
her to the Florida School for the
Deaf and Blind in St. Augustine
- the same school Ray Charles
famously learned to write and
play music at in the 1930s and
40s.
McKnight says she was
homesick and cried every day
upon arriving at the school, but
eventually the experience
changed her life for the better.
"I realized as I got older it
was the best thing for me," she
said. "It was a different environ-
ment. They never said 'you can-
not do this.'"
McKnight learned Braille
and took sewing, cooking and
mobility classes. She even spent
time as a cheerleader for the
school's athletic teams and
eventually graduated as valedic-
torian of her class.
It was during her time at the
school McKnight realized
everyone there had something to
offer the world and it was up to
them to make it known.
"In my valedictorian speech,
I said, 'When we leave school,
this is where the teaching expe-
rience begins,'" she recalled.
"'It's going to take each one of
us to change the outside com-
munity's opinion of us. When
they see us, they'll just see peo-
ple who are disabled, but when
they meet you, they're going to
change their opinion.'"
In many ways the ADA facil-
itates that change more than
enough reason to celebrate it.

Dog days a danger for pets


Heat can easily
cause major
pet problems

It's summertime and the
living is easy unless you're
a dog, that is.
And Mother Nature didn't
give them very efficient cool-
ing systems, so the hot weath-
er can pretty uncomfortable
for our four-legged friends -
and possibly deadly, warns
Tammy Fox, director of the
Florida Keys Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals on Stock Island.
"Just this month, we have
had two instances where dogs
have died as a result of heat-
related conditions," Fox said.
"In one case the dog was being
walked or rather run along-
side a bicycle to attend our
spay/neuter clinic. The dog
collapsed on our steps with
heat exhaustion. Despite our
vet's best efforts, the animal
did not survive.
"In the other case, the dog,
one of the short-nosed breeds,


which are particularly vulner-
able in the heat, was being
walked outdoors and was
overcome. Both instances
were so sad, and so unneces-
sary."
Living in this climate
brings extra responsibilities if
you are a pet owner.
Here are some guidelines
adapted from the American
Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals
(www.aspca.org):
Exercise your dog in the
cool of the early morning or
evening never when it's
extremely hot and humid.
Take care not to let your
dog stand on hot asphalt. His
or her sensitive paw pads can
easily burn.
It is best to keep your
pets indoors, especially during
the hottest part of the day. If
you must keep your pet out-
doors, provide plenty of shade
and cool, clean water.
+ Never, ever leave your
animal alone in a vehicle or in
the back of a pickup truck.


Parking in the shade offers lit-
tle protection, as the sun shifts
during the day.
Elderly and overweight
pets, as well as short-nosed
dog breeds (pugs, boxers, etc.)
need extra special care in hot
weather.
For more information on
heat-related issues and your
pets, call your veterinarian.

Cancer patients
in need of drivers
In the Keys, many cancer
patients need daily or weekly
treatments over the course of sev-
eral months but many do not have
a car, are too ill to drive them-
selves or don't have a family
member or friend to drive them to
treatment.
The American Cancer
Society's Road to Recovery pro-
gram provides transportation to
such cancer patients but more
volunteer drivers are needed.
If you have a car and some free
time, you can help someone keep
a doctor's appointment. Call the

Adler, with Morris,
takes 2 spots in
Bermuda Classic

The Weez in the Keys, owned
by Scott Robins of Miami Beach
and captained by Dave Morris
of Islamorada released the
largest blue-marlin in the just-
ended three-day Bermuda Big
Game Classic.
With 57 boats entered, Weez
in the Keys boated the largest
blue marlin 616 pounds -
and won $167,000 in prize
money.
Angler Alex Adler boated the
fish on Day 1 of the tournament
and Weez in the Keys was able
to hold on over the next two
days of the competition to win
first place with their catch.
First mate Taylor Walsh and
second mate Brooks Rans care-
fully leadered the fish to the
back of the boat, where it was
hoisted into the cockpit. Later
that day, the fish was weighed at
the dock in front of a large
crowd of curious onlookers.
The competition for the
biggest blue got interesting on
Day 3 of the tournament with
the Weez in the Keys posting the
only fish over the minimum
weight of 500 pounds on Day 1
and no fish weighed in on Day
2.

playoff loss to North Miami.
SThe Upper Keys had defeat-
ed North Miami earlier in the
tournament, 6-1, but head coach
Joe Joyce said this time around
things just didn't go their way.
North Miami "couldn't do
anything wrong; 'everything
they hit found a hole," Joyce
said.
Tyler Hudson went 3-for-3


with two runs batted in to lead
the Upper Keys offensively.
David Bogue, Derek Romero
and John Lietaert all went 1-
for-2 from the plate.
Hudson also started the
game on the mound for the
Upper Keys and pitched three
and two-thirds innings while
surrendering six runs. Joyce
said Hudson was not as sharp as
he had been in the team's previ-
ous matchup against North


Miami.
"This time he was a little off
and throwing a lot more pitches
than he's used to," Joyce said.
The Upper Keys got down 1-
0 in the first but tied it upin the
bottom half of the inning when
Hudson scored on a Justine
Perrine base hit.

Joyce said.
The Upper Keys put one
more run on the board in the
sixth when Lietaert doubled to
score Romero, but their last
inning rally came up short.
Joyce said he was proud of
his team's effort in the tourna-
ment, having won five straight
games at one point and finish-
ing 5-2 overall.
"We didn't get into the
championship game like we set

Still other team members
focus exclusively on competi-
tive swimming with hopes of
college scholarships and
advanced competitions.
Recent Coral Shores gradu-
ate Nicky Glade garnered a full
college scholarship for rowing
based on her swimming record.
High-school standouts Luke
Knight and Acacia Grube have
both increased their speeds in
recent months, a task that often
gets harder as the athletes
mature.
Luke Knight, a 6-foot-4,
220-pound senior who can
bench-press 300 pounds, will
compete at the Junior Olympics
in Plantation this weekend as a
hopeful for a spot at national
meets.
With the later-than-usual
start of school this fall, opportu-
nities for summer competition
are more plentiful than usual.
Many of the meets are held at
the Florida Keys Community
College pool in Key West.
Tryouts for the swim team
are ongoing. For more informa-
tion, contact the Cabana Club in

Battle to the end


for big marlin


MARLIN / From 35

team from Bermuda hooked and
boated a large fish meeting the
minimum weight and the Sea
Toy, captained by Bull Tolson of
Manteo, N.C., also boated a fish
meeting the minimum weight.
That set the stage for a battle for
the biggest fish.
With only two hours left of
fishing time, Weez in the Keys
hooked its second blue marlin.
Everyone sensed that Weez in
the Keys had landed another big
one, as the fight lasted more than
two and a half hours and ended
well after the designated time for
lines out.
All that was left at this point
was the weigh-in, as the three
boats had all boated fish meeting
the minimum weight require-
ment.
As a large crowd gathered,
Sea Toy was the first to reach the


dock and weighed in a fish at
570 pounds, which put them in
second place for the moment.
Next to weigh was Triple
Play, whose fish tipped the scale
at 592 pounds, putting them in
first place for the day and second
place.for the tournament.
With first place overall
secured, the Weez in the Keys
was the last boat to arrive at the
weigh station. The only thing
left in doubt was whether it was
going to be a clean sweep for
Weez in the Keys and all of the
prize money, or would they have
to share a portion it with Triple
Play?
The fish weighed 580 pounds
- giving the Weez in the Keys
first and third place overall and
the lion's share of the prize
money.
The was the first time in the
tournament's history that one
boat had two of the top three
fish.

Still learning about Cuba


Why caged birds
still sing a
fitting metaphor
T his week's slide and photo
presentation at Crane Point
Hammock was the end cap
to a package of stories on our
neighboring island of Cuba that
.ran in the previous two editions
of the Keynoter and in Keys
SSunday.
I would be remiss if I didn't
thank those who supported me in
getting the message out through
various outlets: Crane Point
Hammock in Marathon; Cal
Sutphin on WFFG AM-1300 on
Boot Key and George Lopez
with WPIK 102.5-FM on
Cudjoe, (both stations can be
heard from the Keys to Cuba);
Alan Kennish with Key West
Fine Art Printing and Scott
Wilcox with Key West Fine Arts
Services, both on Shrimp Road,
Stock Island; Michele Adams
with Transatlantic Wine &
Spirits; and Melody Novoa with
the The Reporter (who made
sure my Spanish spellings were


correct).
Of

also thank-
ful to my
Travel bud-
o :r dies for
"l -.gmaking the
Strip so
S enjoyable
and educa-
tional, as
well as my
Jessica family who
Machetta worried
about me
plenty while I was gone.
OK, so a plane was being
hijacked from Havana to Miami
the very same morning I was
flying out, so they had good rea-
son to worry, but they have a
good reputation for supporting
my various adventures, no mat-
ter how wild they sound in the
planning phase.
Most of all, I'm thankful to
the people of Cuba who wel-
comed us with open arms, and
never failed to remind us that
though our governments are not
friends, we as people can be.
The thing is, I'm still on the
journey. Still walking around
Havana, still viewing the art, still
discovering Cuban life.
As I review my photos and
re-review them, I see new things
I never noticed when snapping
the shot. Others have pointed
them out.
The other night, I was flip-
ping through them (digitally) and
a young Cuban guy said, "Go
back! Go back!"
I had taken photos of bird-
cages lining the wall of an apart-
ment in Havana. I was intrigued

by the cages, the birds, and won-
dered why they were just lined
up outside, but couldn't quite put
my finger on why.
"I used to make those when I
was a kid," he explained.
"They're traps."
Whoa. I asked him what he
meant.
He said when they made the
cages, they would make one of
the doors so it would flip
around. Placing food underneath
of that spot meant when birds
landed on it to get the food, the
door would flip around, the bird
would fall in the cage and be
trapped inside.
They would then sell the
bluebirds and finches as pets.
Yet another example of
resolve, using ingenuity, craft
and teamwork to make ends
meet.
There is one place I didn't get
to go in Havana that I really had
hoped I could: the Colon
Cemetery.
Like Key West photographer
Carol Tedesco (see Artbeat for
more), I love shooting old monu-
ments and solemnly studying the
old gravestones.
In Paris, my favorite stop was
at Pere Lachaise, the famous
cemetery where Chopin,
Moli6re, Oscar Wilde, Delacroix,
Balzac and, most famously, Jim
Morrison were laid to rest. The
author Colette was taken there in
1954 and at her slab, flowers are
there daily. Legend has it that
Scats replenish the roses.


Other monuments honor the
French who died in the
Resistance or in Nazi concentra-
tion camps during World War II.
I get lost in the romance, the
remorse, the devotion. Even the
scent, where the fecund earth
meets the perfume of flowers
elevates me to somewhere ethe-
real.
It's the same scent in these
ancient cities inside of cities all
over the world.
But, I've always said that if I
saw everything I wanted to dur-
ing any adventure, there would
never be reason to return. You
have to leave something undone.
Another place I wanted to go
in France was the Salvador Dali
museum, which I also missed.
That's why this weekend, I'll
be checking out the one in St.
Petersburg where, finally, I'll be
meeting my kids and bringing
them back to the islands.
Anyone who missed the spe-
cial package on Cuba can view it
online at www.keynoter.com

several images are posted in the
Photo Gallery at www

Anyone who missed the
photo exhibition at Crane Point

'La Ciudad Blanca' on display


Tedesco's works
at Blue Heaven
throughout July
C arol Tedesco's soulful
portraits of cemetery mon-
uments from "La Ciudad
Blanca" the White city in
Ecuador hang gracefully in the
upstairs room of the Blue
Heaven restaurant.
The room, kept much as it
ever was, harks back to the
building's historic use as a bor-
dello. Small privacy cells have
sliding peek holes and the ante-
room was open to the air at one
point in time.
Now enclosed and mercifully
air conditioned, it was the meet-
ing place for a table full of
Tedesco's admirers last week.
The monument carver in
Ecuador must have been an
inspired artist. The statues are
romantic and emotive beauti-
ful women throwing themselves
onto graves. Long flowing gar-
ments shroud them in billowing
folds.

uments. She interprets them in
colored pencil and other drawing
techniques.
Benedict moved to Lafayette,
Ind., seven years ago. I heard
from her recently. She is still
working in pastels, colored pen-
cil and other drawing media. Her
subject matter includes not only
monuments, but also nature and
figures.
She shows her work at Artists
Own Gallery in Lafayette,
www.artists-own.com, and
teaches drawing, life drawing
and design in the Visual and
Performing Arts Department
at Purdue University.
Her large, detailed drawings
show exquisite attention to detail
and luminous color. Viewers
cannot help being awed.
Longtime residents may
remember Grace through her
husband, Kevin O'Brien, who
was director of the Art and
Historical Society during the
time the Custom House evolved
as a museum.
An artist in his own right,
O'Brien held an undergraduate
fine-arts degree from the
University of Notre Dame and
an MFA from Tulane, Benedict's
alma mater as well.
O'Brien is currently execu-
tive director of the Kentucky
Museum of Art and Craft in
Louisville (www.kentucky
arts.org), a serious commute
from Lafayette, Ind.


Grace Benedict, a Keys artist now living in Indiana, stands next
to her image of funereal monuments. Carol Tedesco, Key West
photographer, is showing her 'White City' images now at Blue
Heaven.

The gonzo guide to the BVI


Island trips

D destination: latitude 064 37
W, longitude 18 26 N.
When the urge hits me
to set my sights on new horizons
- well I don't know about you
- but my compass pretty much
stays stuck on a southern head-
ing.
In visiting the uncorrupted the
unspoiled mountainous terrain of
the British Virgin.Islands, an
expedition that would be almost
insurmountable without the con-
tribution of some extreme talent,
it was a team effort to create the
gonzo adventure guide to wher-
ever the hell I was.

the shot no matter what the situ-

going excessive compulsive who
keeps me somewhat centered
and prevents the trash from pil-
ing up around me.


Second on the team is Cujo,
the bipolar opposite of Elbows
and certifiably crazy. He's never
had a drivers license, voter regis-
tration card, passport or birth
certificate. Cujo's only proof of
actual existence are his mental
disability papers from the state
of Mississippi, which he believes
is enough to pass him through
customs.
Despising airports and stand-
ing in long lines I discovered
the trick to travel purchase
tickets online. Yep. Over a moji-
to, I choose my flight and my
seat and then print out my board-
ing pass from my back-porch
swing.
Take notes people, I checked,
no bags. If it didn't fit into my
carry on, it didn't go. My motto
for traveling is: If I don't have it,
I don't need it.

down, it wasn't but five minutes
later that my rear was seated in
the rear of one of those open-air
jitneys.
Destination: Red Hook to

Virgin Islands (St. Thomas) was
in 1982 when I was deported
from St. Martin for trying to help
educate the islanders. The police
called it "corruption." I was

detained for "suspicious behav-
ior" and spent the night in jail.
The next morning I was
escorted to a confiscated drug
dealer's prop plane and dumped
off at the closest U.S. territory
- St. Thomas. I could think of
-worse fates.
Most all the Virgin Islands -
British and U.S. are moun-
tainous with inactive volcanoes,
rain forest, massive flamboyants
and giant almond trees. I inhaled
the perfume of the frangipani
flowers and picked one for my
hair every day.
I was still reminiscing when
the driver of the jitney came to a
burning rubber halt, breaking
into some sort mumbo jumbo.
He then left the three amigos
(that would be us) standing on
side of the road in the middle of
nowhere. I think Cujo had some-
thing to do with this fiasco since
he was the one sitting up front.
"No problem mon," Cujo said
with a snap-on island accent.
"I'll just flag down another bus
and here comes one now."
Jitneys came and went -


about five of them, each with a
couple of empty seats, and didn't
stop.
I started hitchhiking island-
style, pointing my forefinger in
the direction I wished to go.
That did the trick. An old
British jeep, a relic from World
War II, stopped.
The driver was dressed in
camouflage and wearing a
Howard Hughes aviator hat and
goggles.
"Turbo is my name, soldier of
fortune is my game!" He said.
Constantly tooting his hor at
other islanders on the road;
Turbo was obviously connected.
He drove his jeep right onto the
Tortola ferry with a wave of his-
hand.
At the west end of Tortola,
there's a popular anchorage for
yachties and Jimmy Buffett
called Soper's Hole, but for me,
it was time to meet Mr. Customs
Man. Elbows got busy filling out
documents and Officer Gung Ho
told me to remove my sunglass-
es. -
Sweating, we looked each
other in the eye. I was just about
to blink when he stamped my
passport. I'm glad I didn't follow
Cujo though. Looking back over
my shoulder, I saw him whip out
those crazy papers, which creat-
ed quite a stir. It took some seri-
ous English island jibber jabber
between Turbo and the authori-
ties before those papers were
stamped.
We meandered over for a cold
one at the Jolly Roger, a drink-
ing hole for pirates like Johnny
Depp and Keith Richards.

Krupa paints


mural on Galleria


Owner working to
update, upscale
plaza's character
By CLAUDIA MILLER
L'Attitudes contributor

Upper Keys artist Stacie
Krupa is adding her
unique touch to the
Galleria of Islamorada shopping
center, mile marker 81, where
she's painting a mural of a giant
tarpon in her well-recognized
bold and energetic style.
The center, which is home to
12 stores including Eye Candy
Boutique, My Boutique,
Caribbean Catering, Spanish
Gardens Restaurant and others
has been owned by Mike
Anzalone for 15 years. He has
recently done some renovations
on the building and wants to
give it a fresh new look.
"Right now we've got a
Wyland tile mural that's been up
for 10 years," he said. "I think
that this new work by Stacie
will give the complex an
upscale feel. She's a Keys artist
who's been getting a lot of
attention former work, so I think
she'll add that local flavor."
Best known for her in-your-
face depictions of marine life,
Krupa has been painting for
more than 11 years in the Keys.
In her work, she expresses her
love and fascination of being
surrounded by the ocean by cre-
ating images that explode from
the canvas. She uses warm
tones with hints of cool colors
articulated with bold strokes and
chunky textures.
She has done murals before
for the Sandy Cove Marina and
the Dusky South Marina on
Lower Matecumbe, which were
much larger in scale than her
current project. Those murals
were 20 feet by 30 feet, while
this one will be 10 feet by 10
feet. Also, she did a mural-sized
painting of an iguana for the
entrance to Anzalone's new club
The Iguana Club.
Working together, Krupa and
Anzalone decided on the tarpon
as the subject for the building as
well as the basic color-scheme,
which will be different tones of
creams, browns, ochres and


golds. Krupa said that she sug-
gested the tarpon because it is a
vibrant fish, and she envisioned
it with shine and glitz.
"It's a beautiful fish with
very intricate scales," she said.
"I thought that I could incorpo-
rate that into the piece and get
some great lines and textures
going."
Krupa noted that working on
a mural was much different than
working on a commissioned
painting on canvas. She said
that with a painting, she will
generally create several works
for an individual to choose
from, and with a mural, her
approach has to be a little more
collaborative.
"If the person doesn't-like
something about the mural
when I'm finished; we can dis-
cuss it. If it needs to be re-
worked, I'll go in and find
another visual that excites me,
and we will re-evaluate at that
point. I do tell them not to say a
word until it's finished. There
are a lot of color layers, and you
never know what the piece is
going to look like until it's
done."
Using the grid approach for
the work, Krupa will map the
tarpon out in advance in sec-
tions on paper. Then, she will
grid it out on the wall by hand
using her drawing as a guide-
line.
"I visualize the colors in my
head, and I start with a basic
concept on the direction that I
want the image to go in," she
said. "I don't use the blow-up
method with a projector. I don't
find that as exciting or challeng-
ing. My marks aren't going to
be the perfect outline because I
don't want that. I want it to be a
little bit more by chance."
Krupa said her main goal
with this mural was for it to
warrant repeated viewing where
people will discover something
new each time they see it.
"There are too many paint-
ings that people just walk by
because they're not exciting,"
she said. "I want it to be about
paint and texture and energy.
That's the new feel that Mike's
trying to get for the building."

cost about $27,000 in 1967 (that
would be about $127,000 in
today's dollars). He said it's
worth $105 to $110,000 now.
"I was a just kid about 12
years old when she bought it,"
James said. "It's one of the
world's best. Piano players drool
over it. My mother used to play
it all the time; classical stuff by
Mozart, Beethoven, Bach. We
built this house around that
piano."
For decades, the piano has
served as the focal point of a
vast room measuring 75 feet by
40 feet, with 28-foot-high ceil-
ings, which was constructed
especially for it. James said the
concert grand, which is signed
by the maker, was a family treas-
ure... an awesome instrument... a
work of art.
Then along came Hurricane
Georges.
James said the 1998 storm -
a Category 2 hurricane when it
passed over the Keys that caused
widespread flooding and wind
damage is mostly to blame
for ruining his mother's cher-
ished piano.

"Georges turned the air con-
ditioning off. The humidity went
up and stayed there, and that's
the worst thing for a piano,"
James explained. "We got corro-
sion on the strings, film, dust...
you name it. Plus, the everyday
weather down here can really
damage a piano over time."
In the years following the
storm, the once majestic instru-
ment sat neglected, it's strings
continuing to rust. Lizards and
rodents set up housekeeping
inside. The moving parts froze
and the cabinet's formerly rich
patina lost its sheen.
Then along came Daryl
Crabtree.
Last November, Crabtree, a
piano tuner from Michigan, was
traveling through the Keys. On a
whim, he dropped by Byars
Music Store, Marathon, to leave
a business card advertising his
services.
Some time later, James visit-
ed the store to pick up music
supplies he is a guitarist,


drummer, and keyboard player
with a penchant for blues, rock,
and country music and he
told store owner Linda Lee
Byars about the sorry state of his
late mother's piano.
Byars, herself a pianist and
music teacher, said she couldn't
pass up the chance to help save


Elite indeed

So you think you want to own a B6sendorfer?
Authorized Bosendorfer dealer Manny Perez, owner of
the Piano and Art Galeria, Coral Gables, said the starting
price for new upright BBsendorfer pianos is $45,000. The
least expensive B6sendorfer grand piano costs approxi-
mately $73,000 and the price goes up from there.
depending upon the size and any special order features.
Perez said the most unusual Bosendorfer he's ever seen
was one covered in alligalor skin. Others have been stud-
ded with Swarovski crystals and sculptural accents.

such a glorious instrument,
which she called "the elite of
pianos, the top of the line."
She said she had the privilege
of playing a Bbsendorfer 30
years ago when she worked for a
music store in Nashville, and it
was an unforgettable thrill.
"They had one in the show-
room and I got to play it," Byars
recalled. "It had such a beautiful
bass-structured sound, such mel-
low tones."
Byars gave Crabtree's num-
ber to James. James called
Crabtree, who then called his
partner in business and life,
piano re-builder Judy Stigen.
The deal was struck, and in
April, Crabtree and Stigen tem-
porarily moved from Michigan
to live in an RV on James' prop-
erty while they undertook the
painstaking, four-month process
of completely restoring the clas-

James home to be filled with music once again


PIANO / From 6

sic Bosendorfer.
Crabtree said the job has been
a dream come true for both he
and Stigen, who together have
around 30 years experience
working on pianos.
"This guy [James] said
'money is no object put the
best quality in it you can,'"
Crabtree said. "What a thrill to
be able to do a restoration with-
out someone nickel and dime-
ing your work to death.
"And it's a B6sendorfer. It
doesn't get better than that."
Crabtree's first task was to
vacuum out the mess left by
rodents and reptiles, which he
said had been "having a field
day" inside the piano. Next, he
removed the strings to gain
access to the soundboard, which
had seized up.
The damaged copper-covered
steel bass strings were sent to a
manufacturer in Kentucky so
exact duplicates could be made.
The other steel strings were
ordered new. Then Crabtree and
Stigen began removing and
reworking each miniscule part of
the nearly 7-foot instrument.
"Most parts in a piano are
made out of wood," Crabtree
explained. "Inside each part are
felt pieces that wear out. They.
serve as hinges, and there are a
couple thousand of those.
Stigen takes each of these
microscopic pieces of felt out,
makes new ones, and replaces
them by threading them through
the bushings.
"The bottom line is all these
parts take your finger motion
and push the hammer into the
string. After all the felts and
hammers are replaced it all has
to be readjusted with the preci-
sion of a surgeon."
Stigen said she has done
touchups on a Bisendorfer
before, but has never completely
restored one. Reviving the luster
of the pure ivory keys, and
recreating the finish on the cabi-
net were among the most
rewarding parts of this particular
restoration, she said.
Stigen credits James with
making certain the pair had
everything they needed to do the
job well, and Crabtree chuckled
as he recalled the lengths to
which James was willing to go
to bring the piano back to life,
including putting his African
gray parrot in the room to enter-

tain the couple while they
worked.
"We set up a complete shop
in their living room, and it was
full of tools and tables; blowers
and filters and paint racks,"
Crabtree said. "You know those
carport things you set up in your
yard? Well [James] went out and
bought one and installed it in his
living room. We sealed it off
with the piano inside. It's like
painting a car. You can't have a
speck of dust when you're refin-
ishing a piano."
Crabtree explained that
B6sendorfer pianos are not var-


nished they get their satin
sheen from extensive hand buff-
ing. He said he and Stigen sand-
ed, painted, and buffed the
instrument until it looked as
good as new.
"Now the cabinet is a work of
.art again," he continued. "The
way the light catches it is
remarkable. It glows."
James agreed that the piano
looks stunning.
But what does he think of the
sound, now that Crabtree and
Stigen have returned each of the
instrument's nearly 13,000 parts
to their rightful places?


Takes a lickin'

According to the B6sendorfer company, young Ignaz
Bosendorfer, son of a master cabinetmaker, started build-
ing pianos in Vienna in 1828. He was propelled into a life
of fame and fortune when composer Franz Liszt. who
reportedly had a habit of destroying pianos with his flam-
boyant playing style, discovered that Bosendorfer's instru-
ments were the only ones able to stand up to his abuse.
In 1830, the emperor of Austria conferred upon Ignaz
B6sendorfer the title of "Imperial and Royal Court and
Chamber Piano Manufacturer." Tsars. emperors, and mon-
archs around the world, as well as leading musicians and
entertainers, commissioned B6sendorfer pianos to grace
their regal homes, studios, and concert halls.
In 1966. Kimball International Inc.. an American com-
pany, bought B6sendorfer and owned it until 2002 when it
was sold to its current owner, Austrian banking group
BAWAG RS.K. Each year, the company builds approxi-
mately 450 pianos at its facility in Wiener Neustadt, Austria.

"Oh... I can't adequately
describe it. Such warmth. It's
awesome, just beautiful," he
said. "It exceeded our expecta-
tions.
"Daryl and Judy are quite the
team. They worked hours and
hours doing fine, tedious work,
all day and sometimes half the
night. They are fabulous."
Stigen said Crabtree was
alone in the house after perform-
ing a final tuning when he decid-
ed to be the first to play and
consequently hear the fully
restored instrument.
"I heard Daryl screaming like
crazy," Stigen said. "He came
running out of the house scream-
ing, 'Oh my God, oh my God,
come hear it!'"
"It is awesome," Stigen con-
tinued. "I dare say it is the most
well-rounded sounding piano
I've ever heard."
While none of the parties
would disclose what it actually
cost James to restore the piano,
Crabtree said "everybody got a
good, fair deal all the way
around."
He said a rough estimate for
restoring a similar piano with the
same degree of deterioration
would be around $30,000.
James estimated the piano is
now worth between $105,000


and $110,000.
He said he would care for-the
piano quite a bit differently now
by ensuring that humidity in his
house never reaches a level that
adversely effects the instrument.
He said whenever long-term
power outages threaten, he will
seal the BOsendorfer inside a
special covet with "damp
chasers" that run on generator
power.
To keep the piano sounding
it's best, Crabtree will be asked
to return regularly to tune it,
according to James. Tuning will
need to be done more frequently
during the first few years until
the strings get accustomed to
their new environment.
"It's worth it," James said. "If
you give these beautiful instru-
ments a little extra care, they'll
return it with the gift of music
for years to come."
James said he and his wife,
Erin, would like to have children
someday, and he resurrected the
piano with the hope that one of
his progeny would learn to play it.
Until then, Sheila Del
Guercio's magnificent
B6sendorfer concert grand again
stands proudly at the ready -
waiting for yet another child to

ly 55 feet of water 35 miles
southwest of Key West.
"-Scores of its artifacts and
treasures are on display in Key
West's Mel Fisher Maritime
Museum, 200 Greene St. They
include gold and silver bars and
coins, a 77.7-carat emerald, reli-


gious objects, rare navigational

At 1,300 feet above sea level,
we looked over the rugged terrain.
We could see 40 or more islands

Still watching the magnificent

pulled out his guitar (minus two

"Banana Boat" song.
The earth suddenly gave way
and the Jeep literally fell out -

bumper-to-bumper and clear to
the top of its doors.
Climbing out of the hole to

We were still hiking down the

He raised a relaxed hand
slightly upward his palm fac-

for now, go in peace," and con-

Finally, the forest gave way to

Brown was born on Long
Island in New York and stud-
ied art at the New York
University College in New
Paltz for two years in the
early 1970s.
Then she worked for IBM
for nearly 20 years, retiring in
1993. In the 1990s, she joined
the Washington Art
Association in Washington
Depot, Conn., and remains a
member. At WAA, she studied
painting with Trey Friedman
and Mathew Lopaz, and
shared many creative hours
with the other artists who
attended the workshops.
While interacting with the
other artists, Brown said she
developed her own expressive
style and approach. When her
husband retired in 2000, they
left the ice and snow in


Connecticut and settled on
Big Pine Key.
Now, she remains active as
a member of the Lower Keys
Artists Network, the Key
West Art Center, the Key
West Plein Air Painters, and
the Artists in Paradise Gallery
on Big Pine Key. She joined
Island Art Co-Op Gallery in
September 2003. Her work is
in numerous collections of
fine art in the U.S. and
Europe.
She enjoys plein air paint-
ing with oils, acrylics and
also works in watercolor, pas-
tel, ink wash, and charcoal.
You may see her painting on
the streets of Key West, Big
Pine Key, or anywhere a like-
ly subject appears.
She recently spent some
time sketching at the Coffee
Mill Dance Studio.
"Lots of quick poses," she
said.
She's also been trying her
hand at metal sculpture and
plans to continue with that
medium, and accepts commis-
sion work for portraits, hous-
es portraits and other sub-
jects.
Her show at the Key West
Art Center runs through Aug. 7.
