Sewer deal up tonight


City considers
many scenarios,
opposition high
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
grapples tonight with sewer costs
and how best to allocate expens-


es.
This follows a public outcry at
its July 10 meeting and a call for
a better handle on costs per
equivalent dwelling unit and allo-
cations for single-family homes,
condos and vacant lots.
The council will hear a pres-
entation on system development
costs and different ways to spread


those costs for Areas 4 and 6, the
first two neighborhoods targeted
for central sewers.
Tonight's meeting, which
begins at 6 p.m., will be held at
the Sheriff's Office hangar at
Florida Keys Marathon Airport.
Also on the agenda is a resolu-
tion to award a $29 million con-
tract to Globetec Construction,

Staff calls for split charge

which won the bid to do the
Sombrero (Area 4) and Coco
Plum (Area 6) neighborhoods.
SBut time is running out for the
council to decide whether to
move forward, as its faces an
Aug. 14 expiration date for the
Globetec contract and pressure to
continue the contract resolution
until the Aug. 14 council meet-
ing.
According to figures present-
ed at the council's June 5 meet-
ing, both a single-family home-
owner and a condominium owner
would pay $4,499 for an EDU.
The city considers one EDU to be
equal to usage of 167 gallons of
water per day.
But a separate connection fee
of $8,304 would be paid be paid
in full by each single-family
homeowner, while residents of a
condo complex would split that
cost between the total number of
owners, according to methodolo-
gy presented June 5.
At tonight's meeting, a split-
charge approach will be present-
ed. City Finance Director Peter
Rosasco said the estimated cost
would be $7,106 per single-fami-
ly home and $5,728 for a single-
family condo in a 20-unit com-
plex.
Rosasco said the numbers are

EDUs are equivalent dwelling units. They reflect system
development costs for a sewer plant, transmission and
collection lines; it does not include separate costs for
connecting lateral lines from the house to the street sewer line.


based on the assumption that 40
percent of the total cost is grant-
funded and that money is appor-
tioned to collection-system costs
only. Collection costs are lower
per unit for multi-family build-
ings than single-family homes on
large lots.
According to those calcula-
tions, the EDU for both the sin-'
gle-family home and condo
would be $5,656.
But the $1,450 collection fee
would be paid in full by the
homeowner, while the condo
owner would split that collection
charge 20 ways ($72.50).
Rosasco said allocating
money toward the collection sys-
tem only limits disparity between
assessments for different types of
property.
Vice Mayor Marilyn Tempest,
who has been in favor of moving
forward with the project, said the
figures to be presented tonight
are "a good starting point."
"I would like to see them even
lower if we could," Tempest said,
noting the cost of road repair is
included and contributes to the
cost, "but now we have some-
thing we can sink our teeth into."
Councilman Don Vasil, who
has been outspoken in opposition
of moving forward, said his con-
cerns do not lie only with EDU
costs.
; ;"No matter what the EDU: is,
my concern is that the people


cannot afford it and we need to
get grant money to reduce the
impact," Vasil said. "The issue
isn't whether we need the sewers;
it is getting the people who have
mandated this to come and help
us out."
Vasil said that while some of
his colleagues' contention sewers
will only cost more at a later date
may be true, he believes it should
be "self-determined when we can
afford to do it."
"Do you buy a car you can't
afford today because it is going to
cost more in two years? I don't
think so," he said.
In addition to figures based on
a split-charge methodology, the
council will also be presented
with several alternatives assess-
ment possibilities, including
combined EDU, number of bath-
rooms or bedrooms, square
footage of buildings, total road
frontage along collection lines,
historical usage and property
value based assessment (see
story, neighboring page).
Monthly operations and main-
tenance costs to residents are
expected to be between $50 and
$60.-
Staff will also present ways to
offset system development
assessments by using infrastruc-
ture funds toward the capital cost
of construction and allocating
street maintenance money toward
road re-paving costs.

Alternatives


are varied


City staff
will present
them tonight
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon city staff's sewer
presentation to the City Council
at 6 tonight at the Sheriff's
Office hangar at the, Marathon
airport will include a detailed
description of the split-charge
methodology for sewer assess-
ments. Such methodology has
been used more frequently in
recent statewide sewer projects,
including Key Largo and
Islamorada.
In addition, staff will present
a series of alternative method-
ologies to council, including:
Combined. Based on his-
torical water flow, this method
does not differentiate between
treatment/transmission and con-
nection costs in allocating costs
to customers. Residential units
would be assigned one equiva-
lent dwelling unit, while com-
mercial EDUs would be assigned
according to historical flow.
Under this methodology, the
burden of collection costs would
shift to commercial customers.
Number of bedrooms or
bathrooms. This methodology
assigns EDUs based on the num-
ber of bathrooms or bedrooms at
a property. Typically, bedrooms
are better suited to determine
daily flow.
This method does provide for
a distinction between residential


units with varying usage, but is
both difficult and costly to
administer. In addition, commer-
cial EDUs could not be based on
the same criteria.
Square footage. This
methodology uses a building's
square footage as an indicator of
flow, data that is available on the
tax roll. However, square footage
of buildings is not a strong indi-
cator of usage and commercial
customers would bear the brunt
of collection costs.
The amount of property
abutting the road. This method
uses the front feet of property
abutting the collection lines to
assign costs.
It is the oldest methodology
used in sewer projects, but the
data is not available on the tax
roll and does not differentiate
between residential/non-residen-
tial properties or customers with
different capacity requirements.
+ Historical usage. This
method bases both residential
and commercial assessments on
property-specific historical flow
data. It does provide for greater
differentiation between residen-
tial users with varying need, but
is very difficult and costly to
administer.
Property value-based
assessment. A portion or all costs
would be based on "just" proper-
ty value. This methodology
accounts for differences in home
sizes but is not a strong indicator
of usage. In addition, property
values fluctuate and are difficult
to monitor.

A Key Largo teen was arrest-
ed early Monday, accused of
drawing graffiti at several sites.
Deputy Becky Herrin from
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office said Deputy Ryan Cowart

to it was Jose Fernandez II, 18.
Cowart asked what he was


doing there and Fernandez
admitted drawing graffiti on the
sign, Herrin said.
Further investigation revealed
Fernandez admitted to marking
graffiti on a dumpster, a garbage
can and ice machine at the Circle
K at mile marker 102; on a
power pole on Central Avenue;

Two airlifted after separate crashes


Keynoter Staff


Two people were airlifted out
of the Keys in separate auto acci-
dents Sunday and Monday,
according to the Florida Highway
Patrol.
Monday, 29-year-old Todd
Spano of Marathon was flown to
Ryder Trauma Center in- Miami
after crashing his 2004 Honda
motorcycle.
The patrol reports Tammy
Elwell, 33, of Marathon was
stopped in her 2004 Honda car in
the southbound turn lane at U.S. 1
and 89th Street, and Spano was
speeding northbound on one
wheel at times.
Elwell turned left into Spano's

path, causing the motorcycle to
roll and flip for about 100 feet,
coming to a rest on the north-
bound shoulder.
Spano's body reportedly skid-
ded into a posted speed sign on
the shoulder; he was flown to
Ryder in critical condition.
The northbound lane was
blocked for about half an hour
during the traffic investigation.
Elwell is charged with making
an improper turn; Spano is charged
with unlawful speed and misde-
meanor possession of marijuana.
Sunday Kathryn Dorman, 17,
of Key West was flown to Ryder
after being ejected from her vehi-

cle on the Boca Chica Bridge.
She remained in critical condi-
tion Tuesday, according to the
Florida Highway Patrol.
The patrol reports Rachel
Dorman was "'driving too fast for
conditions" it was raining
heavily in a 2006 Mitsubishi
when she lost control of the vehi-


cle, crashing into the outside
guardrail and spinning out of con-
trol. When the rear of the car
struck the inside guardrail,
Kathryn Dorman was ejected
from the back seat.
The patrol closed the south-
bound lanes of U.S. 1 near mile
marker 6.3 for about 45 minutes


during the investigation.
Rachel Dorman, 19, was
reportedly wearing a seatbelt but
her passengers, Kathryn Dorman
and Andrea Dean, 19, also of Key
West, were not.
Rachel Dorman and Dean
were taken to Lower Keys
Medical Center.


Everglades plan stalls


EVERGLADES / From 1

spent $250,000 more than we
budgeted for modeling.".
The spreader-canal project is
being redesigned because "even
government-agency staffers
came to recognize shortcomings
in the first plan, said Thomas Van
Lent of the Everglades
Foundation.
"It became evident the plan;
proposed last year would not pro-
vide any benefits to Florida Bay
and would likely make things
worse," said Van Lent, a former
National Park Service hydrolo-
gist.
"Even the [water manage-
ment] district changed its mind
when their modeling information
showed [the spreader canal]
probably would not work the way
they thought it would," Van Lent
said. "We applaud the district for
being willing to change its mind.


That's a big step forward."
A representative of the water
management district staff did not
return, a call a call on the project
status by press time Tuesday.
In a June 2006 public work-
shop on the spreader canal,
groups including Audubon of
Florida and the Everglades
Foundation said spreader-canal
plans lacked detail on how to pre-
vent polluted water from reach-
ing Florida Bay.
The project as described could
"flush very dirty water into what
are now high-quality wetlands,"
contended an Everglades policy
associate for Audubon at the
2006 session.
"Water quality standards must
be met," agreed the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary
Advisory Council in an August
.2006 resolution on the C-111
spreader canal. Sanctuary advi-
sors called for building a
stormwater treatment area to help

remove pollutants.
The C-111 canal was dug as
part of South Florida's massive
flood-prevention system. Rain-
water from tropical storms is
channeled into the C-lll canal
from populated areas in Miami-
Dade County.
The canal cuts through the
southern Everglades toward
Florida Bay. Occasionally, large-
scale discharges of fresh water
are released into Manatee Bay
and Barnes Sound. Fish and
marine organisms have died as a
result.
Part of the sprawling Ever-
glades restoration program, the
C-lll spreader canal is proposed
fo be built on an east-west line
south of Florida City. The 5.4-
mile canal would run under U.S.
1 on the 18-Mile Stretch.
Water would be allowed to lap
over the banks of the canal,
intended to mimic the natural
sheet-flow system that was dis-
rupted by the flood-control chan-
neling throughout South Florida.
A complete restoration of the
natural system is impossible
because of development and
changes to topography elsewhere
in the Everglades, planners said.
Project advocates say the
canal would have a more signifi-
cant direct effect on preserving
Florida Bay than any other aspect
of Everglades restoration.
"It's absolutely the most
important project to Florida
Bay," Collins said.
Van Lent said a main problem
with the existing C-lll canal is
that it dumps freshwater into the
confines of Little Blackwater
Sound. "The spreader canal
would not change the place
where the water enters Florida
Bay, which is Little Blackwater
Sound," he said. "That's not
going to restore Florida Bay."
Conservationists also main-
tain that water managers should
make filling in the C-ll1 canal a
higher priority.

Grand jury indicts


alleged killer


Death penalty
a possibility
in Key Largo case

Monroe County State Attorney
Mark Kohl on Monday obtained a
first-degree murder indictment
from a Monroe County grand jury
against a Key Largo man for
allegedly shooting his ex-girl-
friend earlier this month.
Manuel Prieto-Arenas, 47,
was also indicted on the second-
degree felony charge of posses-
sion of a firearm by a convicted
felon.
Should he be convicted of the
murder, Prieto-Arenas would
face either life in prison or execu-
tion. A conviction on the firearms
charge would mean a maximum
penalty of 15 years.
According to Sheriff's Office
reports, officers responded to a
shooting on Hibiscus Lane in
Key Largo the morning of July 6.
There they found the body of
Marie Elena Proenza, 39, with
fatal gunshot wounds to the chest
and neck outside Prieto-Arenas'
home.
Prieto-Arenas reportedly shot
Proenza numerous times follow-
ing a loud domestic dispute. The
arrest affidavit says the victim's
mother watched her daughter get
shot to death.
Prieto-Arenas gave up shortly
before 6 p.m. the day of the
shooting at the Plantation Key
Sheriff's Office substation.
To impose the charge of capi-
tal murder, Florida law requires
prosecutors to obtain an indict-
ment from a grand jury. Three
convicted Keys murderers are
now on Death Row in Florida.
Prieto-Arenas is scheduled to
be arraigned Tuesday before
Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia
on Plantation Key.
According to the Florida
Department of Corrections,
Prieto-Arenas was sentenced
March 27, 2000, in Monroe
County to three years each fol-
lowing felony convictions for
aggravated battery with a deadly
weapon and aggravated assault.
He was released from state prison
Sept. 3, 2002.
Those convictions resulted in
the current charge of a'felon pos-
sessing a firearm.


The killing was a shocking
crime in a county that has experi-
enced only one murder each of
the past three years but the
second reported murder within
six days in Key Largo.
That week, Monroe County
Medical Examiner Michael
Hunter ruled homicide in the
death of Edward Bozarth, 62,
who was found dead Sunday
aboard his liveaboard boat at
Gilbert's Marina next to the
Jewfish Creek Bridge.
Hunter found that he died of
blunt trauma. Detectives say he
likely was dead awhile since his
body was badly decomposed. No
new information has come out
about that case.
Proenza's was the third
Monroe County murder this year;
the first was in Key West in
January.

Escape attempt fails


GOAT / From 1

"It did not work," she said.
After an hour and a half of
trying to corral the animal, they
finally captured him.
"My husband was on top him
and together we walked him to
the van and we drove back to the
rescue center," she said. "He was
very thirsty and hungry and he
drank a lot of water and was
munching on the goat chow."
Farmer Jeanne Selander with
the Sheriff's Office Animal Park
at the Stock Island Detention
Center agreed to accommodate.
the animal.
The jail is already home to a
herd of female goats. The arrival
of such a strapping young male
made quite the commotion,
Maya said.
"They were like 'baaah,
baaah, where have you been big
boy?,'" she said.
However, Selander said the
goat's owner came and picked
him up Monday.
"I told [the owner] if he could-
n't keep him contained and he
became a problem, I'd love to have
him come back," Selander said.

A stray dog ran in, darting

After yet another exciting

Budget cuts hurt now,

but it's for the good

Paying attention is sometimes hard to do when sitting through
budget workshops held by local taxing authorities.
For those who do pay attention, however, there are some very
interesting kernels to be found hidden amid all the chaff.
Take a budget detail unearthed during Islamorada's budget
meetings last week.
Turns out the city-owned marina budgeted $2,500 a year for
cat food to feed strays that have adopted Founders Park as their
heaven on earth. This is close to the dog walk park, of course.
Who can resist the temptation to speculate that cats love to see
their doggie rivals on leashes while felines roam free?
Well, the Village Council thought $2,500 was a bit rich, even
for village cat lovers. They've cut the cat-feed kitty to $1,750
and hope volunteers will pony up the rest of the money needed.
That's an approach others should explore.
As proof, Marathon on Tuesday night was expected to approve
a lease that resolves a long-standing dispute with the Marathon
Yacht Club over who pays what for" use of this city-owned
waterfront.
The Yacht Club enjoyed a $1-a-year lease dating back
decades, originally negotiated between business leaders in
Marathon and Monroe County and running through 2052.
When Marathon incorporated in 1999, Marathon took title
from the county only to discover it was subject to paying coun-
ty property taxes on the Yacht Club because it's a commercial
enterprise.
City taxpayers footed the bill $53,000 and counting the
past three years.
Previous efforts to renegotiate the lease with the club went
nowhere.
Now it appears second thoughts and cooler heads have pre-
vailed and the Yacht Club has agreed to reimburse the city for
past taxes and pay future property taxes.
The School Board has wrestled on the periphery of its 2007-
08 budget, including a 15 percent cut in each department's dis-
cretionary spending and a cap on district travel.
Some administrators are incensed about this sort of "micro-
managing," but elected officials more and more are hav-
ing to examine all spending, getting down to line items in order
to reduce budgets.
Monroe County finds itself facing serious staffing cuts, with
.more on the way, all because close attention was not being paid
to how money was being spent.
Add cuts mandated by the Florida Legislature for reducing
property taxes below the current year's levels, and it's a double
whammy.
There are painful lessons being learned this budget cycle by
virtually all public entities.
Mother's advice applies: take your medicine now. You'll feel
better in the morning.

Any subsidy should go directly to renters


EDITOR:
Cui bono is a Latin phrase that most people in
law enforcement are familiar with because it pro-
vides a good guide to motive. The English transla-
tion is "Who benefits?" Learning the answer to cui
bono solves most crimes.
Who benefits is also a particularly good ques-
tion to ask when trying to determine political
motive. For example, a Marathon task force has
proposed a $5,000 subsidy to help offset losses
suffered by real estate investors whose rental prop-
erties have not been as profitable as they had
anticipated.
Who would benefit from the $5,000 subsidy? I
do not believe the subsidy will benefit anyone


other than the property owners. I do not believe
renters will receive any benefit from the subsidy
payments. I do believe the subsidy is nothing more
than bailout money to rental property owners. I
do not want my tax dollars used to bail out people
who made poor real estate investments.
If the city of Marathon has that kind of money
available, it should be used to directly benefit the
rental community, not their landlords. The money
could be put in a fund to help offset first and last
months' rent and security deposits of renters who
sign one-year leases. I believe that would be an
acceptable answer to cui bono.

Global warming has hardly been proven


EDITOR:
This is in rebuttal to Evelyn Casper's letter to
the editor in the July 18 Keynoter.
More people do not believe that we are the
cause of global warming (if it does exist at all)
than do, and many believe it's a bunch of baloney. :
The liberal press and TV news shows have
repressed any dissenting opinion that goes against
the flawed global-warming theory. There are just
as many anti-global-warming scientists that intelli-
gently disagree with the twisted facts being pushed
on us by the global-warming "the sky is falling"
group.
Meanwhile, those people who have latched onto
the global-warming train refuse to debate, or even
acknowledge, the substantiated facts that go
against what they already latched onto with all
their being.

Big Pine talks ill-timed
EDITOR:
I do not see any reason for the Monroe County
Planning Commission to discuss Big Pine Key's
habitat conservation plan or a future workshop to
amend Big Pine's master plan in Key Largo today.
It is posted on the Planning Commission agen-
da as a board discussion item after a full agenda of
primarily Key Largo-related items. I find it hard to
believe there is any urgency to discuss this Big
Pine Key topic that would require it to be sched-
uled in Key Largo this week. Big Pine Key resi-
dents would have to drive 140 miles round trip on
the opening day of lobster mini-season to partake
in this discussion.
If the Big Pine Key workshop meeting "to be
held in the coming months" is not happening in
the near future, why rush to have this discussion
this week?
Why is this scheduled on a day our highway
Will be jammed with visitors and residents in a
bug-hunting frenzy?
And why the heck would this important Big
Pine Key discussion be scheduled in Key Largo?
Kathy Wheeler; president
Big Pine Key
Civic Association

Editor's note: The Planning Commission meets
at 10 a.m. today at the Key Largo library. It will
be broadcast on Monroe County Channel 76 on
Cnmarn.t Cabhl


In regard to Ms. Casper's fears the Keys will be
under water in several years, if you fill a glass with
ice and water to the top and let it melt, does the
water overflow out of the glass? No. This experi-
ment was done in most public schools in seventh-
grade science class, or used to be). I know that at
my seawall, the water has not gone up yet and
swallowed my dock.
Weather patterns change. Just because one area
of the world is experiencing warmer-than-normal
temperatures in the summer (the Keys) doesn't
make global warming true. Up in Maine, we're
experiencing colder-than-normal temperatures this
summer. In fact, our heat just stopped running in
the night last week at the end of June.
Another claim is that the research by the global-
warming crowd doesn't go back far enough to
come to an intelligent theory. If they went back to
the 1400s or even earlier, they will actually see that
we're coming out of a mini ice age and Co2 levels
were exactly what they are today, which they claim
is the cause of manmade global warming.
Back in the 1970s, Newsweek and other news
sources were reporting we were headed for another
ice age. It never ends, folks.
There is not enough space here to point out all
the mistruths done by the global-warming group,
but if you want to know the true facts, they are out
there if you choose to open up your thinking.

Residents need to be more vocal and


EDITOR:
After reading the letter to the
editor by Jane Packer with the
Marathon Nearshore Water
Committee, I immediately sat
down, put pen to paper and began
writing.
I vacationed in the .Keys many
times before I made my move.
My first visit was in 1999, and I
knew the instant I arrived I was
home. That feeling remained and
I have spent the past few years
working and sacrificing in order
to move to and live in this won-
derful place.
Perhaps during my visits I was
too busy to notice the changes. Or
perhaps I was guilty of relying on
the comfort provided by the devel-
opers' suites, but now, as a resi-
dent, I can honestly say I am sad-
dened, frustrated and scared.
I believe the last big turning
point for Marathon was a 2005
visitor named Hurricane Wilma.
Still today, the memory remains in
the decay of places like the Quay,
and it's all too common to drive
down U.S. 1 and see contractors
making repairs that are also left-
overs from two years ago.
What has happened to the peo-
ple of Marathon? Where are they
going? It seems the brave and


weathered die-hards have thrown
in the towel. It seems as there is a
slow disease taking over and
Marathoners are slowly dying off.
Property after property goes up
for sale and this leaves the rest of
us as prey to the developer vul-
tures. It is sad and frustrating that
we are being gobbled up acre by
acre at an alarming rate. Where
are the residents supposed.to go?
What about affordable housing
and food? How do we survive?
At this rapid rate of develop-
ment, we are going to blink our
eyes and wake up in Belize or St.
Martin, and the heart of the Keys
will stop beating.
It's easy to see the money mon-
gers are systematically getting rid
of the very people that are this
community, and what we will be
left with will be concrete build-
ings with a plastic personality.
How convenient for the upcoming
resorts and condo communities to
import their employees with the
lure of a visa and an apartment.
If we can stand face to face
with Mother Nature and all her
fury, why can't we stand together
and say, "No, this is our home,
and it is not for sale."

'Gator killers aren't sportsmen


EDITOR:
Jason Smith, [attorney for one
of the men who admitted killing a
protected Big Pine Key alligator],
is one of those lawyers decent
people make bad jokes about.
To quote him: "Like I said
before, these guys are sportsmen
and they did consume the alliga-
tor." Let me get this straight.
These guys go out onto a nature
preserve, lure a protected alligator
out of its habitat, torture it by
beating it with a baseball bat after
blinding it, post-evidence of their
crime on the Internet, and he says
they are sportsman because they
ate it? He is either terribly naive
or a liar.
He makes it sound as if they
were merely hunting for their sup-
per, like good little cavemen,
because they consumed the illegal-
ly obtained meat.
By the way, does the attorney
know that time and again, it's been
proven that serial killers start by
torturing animals? He knows that,
right? I am sure he's read the stud-
ies. So likening his client to a seri-
al killer is not that far off. Just
because this is the first torture
death he's copped to doesn't mean


it's his first torture death.
The other attorney, Nathan
Eden, says it's no different from
killing a jewfish or protected bird,
like it's no big deal to do those
things. For someone who is sup-
posed to be upholding the law,
that's a scary statement. Makes me
wonder just what he does in his
spare time.
Also, to read that his client
showed up in his Army uniform
revived memories of other atroci-
ties committed by others who wore
that uniform. Am I dating myself
to say My Lai? Although torturing
an alligator to death and bayonet-
ing old men are not exactly in the
same category, the callous disre-
gard of life and the law is.
While up to now I have merely
read and deleted the information I
have been getting in my in-box
concerning this, I will no longer
do so. I will write letters and I will
show up when the sentencing is
finally done, even though it is a
hardship for me physically. Why?
Because the attorneys and their
clients should not be allowed to
get away with this brutality.

Insurance reform still


has a long way to go


Florida's policymakers faced a formi-
dable task as the Legislature convened
for the January 2007 special session: to
develop a strategy to handle the insur-
ance crisis.
Not only had Florida policyholders
been subject to rising premiums, but as
the special session convened, the Florida
Office of Insurance Regulation had more
than 90 pending residential rate-increase
requests ranging from 2 percent to more
than 100 percent most within the 30
to 40 percent range. Consumer com-
plaints, news media reports and the 2006
election cycle taught us one thing:
Floridians demanded rate relief.
The challenge for the gover-
nor and the Legislature was to
provide rate relief in a fiscally
responsible manner. When
questioned about rising insur-
ance premiums, prior to and
during the special session, the
industry overwhelmingly -
pointed to the increased cost
of reinsurance, or backup
insurance as the primary cul-
prit.
Florida policymakers
addressed this problem direct- Kevin F
ly by expanding the Florida has
Hurricane Catastrophe Fund commit
to provide more inexpensive the sta
reinsurance to the industry, of Ins
Paragon Strategic Solutions Reguk
Inc., a representative of the three
insurance industry, analyzed
the changes to the law and
predicted a 23 percent average rate sav-
ings for consumers. This analysis was
provided to the governor and Legislature
to show the anticipated savings to con-
sumers if the CAT Fund was expanded.
The office hired its own consultants to
independently analyze the impact, which
produced a similar calculated average
savings of 24 percent. '
The new law required an immediate
"presumed factor" savings filing by
March 15 to implement new rates by
'June 1. Companies were allowed to
accept the presumed factor of up to 24
percent or make their own filings if they
could support different savings.
Many companies elected to make their
own filings, which claimed average sav-
ings of 12.2 percent. Although less than
predicted, this was a triumph for
Floridians.
Companies have until Sept. 30 to
make adjustment filings. The office's
expectation was that these filings would


contain additional savings, bringing the
initial 12 percent savings more in line
with the predicted 23 to 24 percent sav-
ings. This has not happened.
As of July 17, the office has received
46 separate filings for residential poli-
cies, of which two ask for rate decreas-
es, nine request no change and 35 ask
for increases. The increases are not
inconsequential.
Of the 35 rate-increase requests, the
Average is 37.3 percent, which in many
cases would eliminate all savings
achieved during the initial presumed fac-
tor filings.
At a time when the property and casu-
alty insurance industry
achieved record profits in
2006, combined with addi-
tional state resources offered
to these companies, the
recent spate of rate-increase
requests is very troubling.
On July 10, the office con-
ducted its first public rate
hearing for the true-up fil-
ings, in this instance, for the
Florida Farm Bureau
Insurance Companies, which
McCarty requested a 26.8 percent
been (amended to 30.3 percent)
;sioner of increase for their homeown-
te Office ers' policies. The information
urance presented was illuminating.
ition for WWhile the companies did,
in fact, receive savings from
years. the Legislature's initiatives,
the companies did not plan to
pass this savings to the consumer as the
Legislature intended. Instead, the sav-
ings would be used to purchase addi-
tional reinsurance, even purchasing rein-
surance from their own subsidiaries, and
to shore up their financial surplus.
Regrettably, Florida Farm Bureau's fil-
ing appears to be indicative of filings
from the rest of the industry.
Based on the evidence presented, the
office issued a notice of intent to disap-
prove this filing. Moreover, we are in
the preliminary stages of scheduling
other rate hearings to review the reason-
ing for other companies' rate-increase
requests.
As your Florida insurance commis-
sioner, I am resolved to use the Florida
statutes and administrative rules to
ensure Florida policyholders receive the
savings intended by the governor and
Legislature. I remain optimistic the vast
majority of companies will do the right
thing by their policyholders.

Suspected resource violators out early


Lobster-sniffing
FWC dog smells
out illegal catch
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Expect a busier lobster mini-
season this year than last based on
traffic through the lobster informa-
tion booth erected to greet south-
bound travelers in Key Largo.
"All indications are that more


people will be here this year than
last," Keys Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission Officer Bobby Dube said.
Law-enforcement officers also
spotted another sign the num-
ber of people arrested for lobster
and other conservation violations
in the week leading up to the
sport-diving season that runs
today and Thursday.
Nine people have been
charged with various conserva-
tion counts in past week. Only


one listed a Monroe County
address.
"We already know there are
more bad people here early,"
Dube said.
Three Miami men were arrest-
ed Saturday after officers tracked
their movements from Niles
Channel in the Lower Keys to
Long Key.
"They would stop at one
bridge, go spearfishing, then
jump in their car and head north,"
Dube said.
FWC officers tailed the sus-
pects, hoping they would reveal a
location where they might have
stashed more illegally taken fish.
The suspects' car was stopped
on Long Key after a Monroe
County Sheriff's Office deputy
pulled it over for erratic driving.
After the stop, the FWC brought
in Jasmine, the agency police dog
trained to sniff for lobster.
Jasmine responded to a scent
from the vehicle. A search
revealed 17 undersized speared
lobster tails taken out of season.
Also discovered were speared
snook, spreared jewfish and
speared ornamental reef fish.
Snook and some non-food reef
fish may not be speared. Jewfish
are protected from all harvest.


Pedro Martinez, 35; Emesto
Martinez, 33; and Keto Wright,
31, all were charged with eight
misdemeanor conservation counts.
FWC officers arrested two
Hollywood men near Indian Key
Fill in Islamorada Saturday.
Lorenzo Munoz, 42, was
charged with four conservation
counts, including spearfishing in
a closed area. Leonardo Munoz,
41, was charged with interfering
with law-enforcement officers.
Thursday, Armando Martinez-
Blanco, 19, was charged with
resisting arrest, along with four
conservation counts, in an FWC
case near Whale Harbor in
Islamorada. Maygel Blanco-
Hernandez, 19, was charged with
five conservation counts, includ-
ing a gill-net violation. Both sus-
pects listed Miami-Dade County
addresses and were cited for
spearfishing in a closed area.
The lobstering problem is not
confined to South Florida.
On Friday, the U.S. Coast
Guard halted a speedboat off
Miami after a long pursuit: Three
dozen lobster tails, apparently
taken in the Bahamas, were found
aboard. Lobster season also was
closed in the Bahamas.
The Florida Keys are the


state's most popular location for
mini-season, attracting about 60
percent of all divers who partici-
pate, according to state surveys.
The FWC has brought in addi-
tional officers for the sport-diving
days, putting about 50 enforce-
ment personnel on the water, in
addition to plain-clothes officers.
The U.S. Coast Guard and
Sheriff's Office also play active
roles in mini-season enforcement.
At the lobster information
booth, opened to give visiting
divers a quick tutorial on rules,
Dube said most people wanted to
know if there are new rules this
year (no), and about areas closed
to lobstering.
"One concern is that there
seems to be a misconception
among some people that the 24-
per-boat [lobster] is still valid,"
Dube said. "It is not."
Mini-season in the Keys has
long limited divers to six per per-
son per day. Elsewhere in Florida,
the mini-season limit is 12 per day.
During the eight-month regu-
lar lobster season that opens Aug.
6, recreational divers now are
limited to six per person per day.
A rule that once allowed 24 lob-
ster per boat in regular season
was repealed several years ago.


Di Gennaro wants panel dissolved


During a severe season of
budget cuts, Monroe County
Mayor Mario Di Gennaro said it
may be time to-consider disband-
ing the county's Workforce
Housing Task Force.
"I think they're at a standstill
right now," Di Gennaro said dur-
ing a budget workshop Monday.
"The resolutions have been
made, programs have been put in
place. But it may have outlived
its usefulness."
The task force has been meeting
regularly for two years, and county
housing consultant Jerry Coleman,
an attorney, said its dissolution
isn't necessarily a bad thing.
"One of the biggest thing it's
done is created a focus. Now
there are two affordable housing
coordinators, one in Key West
and one in the county. There is
now a county division called
Housing and Community
Development. Housing finally
has a name. These may sound lit-


tie but they are a significant
change of focus and direction,"
Coleman said.
The County Commission last
week voted to pay Coleman $350
an hour to work on housing
issues. That goes up to $500
hourly in December.
County Commissioner Dixie
Spehar acknowledged Di
Gennaro's proposal.
"We send a lot of staff to those
meetings," she said.
Coleman said in some ways, the
task force is back where it started.
"Money has become the
biggest problem," he said. "You
cannot build housing without
subsidies. We need money for
sewers. There are state-mandated
budget cuts. There's no magic
wand. How do we pay for these
things? All the task forces in the
world will not necessarily help."
Realtor Donna Windle sits on
the task force as well as the coun-
ty's Planning Commission. She
said there's still work to be done


at the task-force level.
"We need to start addressing
the guidelines for redevelopment
in the county's [land-use] plan,"
she said. "We've almost redone
the housing part of the plan.
Before, the way it read, you
couldn't charge enough for
affordable housing so that anyone
would step forward and build it.
We changed those guidelines."
Windle said the task force was
instrumental in a number of
affordable units coming on line,
and Coleman agrees.
"We went to battle and wrote a
$1.7 million grant for housing
that's now going up on Big
Coppitt," he said.
He added that a number of
important ordinances rose out of
the task force, including one that
requires developers to dedicate
30 percent of redeveloped prop-
erties to affordable units. Another
allows disaster victims to place
emergency trailers on their prop-
erty without first having to secure
a county building permit under
the rate-of-growth ordinance.

Monday, but there were certainly
a lot of dive instructors and those
seeking knowledge about safe
diving and proper lobstering.
The searing sun beating down
on the pavement of the college
Public Safety Building parking
lot didn't slow the inaugural
Florida Keys Safe Diving Rodeo
and Safety Expo, an all-day event
to promote dive safety and prop-
er lobster trapping.
More than 200 people turned
out for the nine-hour event, col-
lege dive instructor Robert Smith
said, boding well for future such
programs.
"I see this lobster rodeo as a
place to start," dive instructor
Robert Guhl, who headed the
expo, said. "I think it will grow
from this."
The expo was staged by a con-
sortium of agencies under the
name Florida Keys Safe Diving
Initiative; it's also known as Dive
Alive.
It was by design it took place
just before lobster mini-season,
which is today and Thursday -
four people died in Keys waters
each of the past two mini-seasons.
"It's not a good thing that hap-
pened," Guhl said of last year's
mini-season. "Four fatalities in
two days."
The "alive" in Dive Alive
stands for:
A stands for air. "Always
surface with at least 500" pounds
per. square inch, or PSI, Guhl
wrote.
L stands.for lead weights.
"In an emergency use your head,
lose the lead."
I stands for inspection.
"Inspect your gear before every
dive."
V stands for verification.
"Verify dive plan, signals and
lost-buddy procedures with your
buddy.
E stands for escape. "Stop,
think, breathe and act."


Monday's expo provided the
college with a perfect opportuni-
ty to utilize its four dive instruc-
tors. Along with diving lessons,
visitors attended a simulated lob-
ster-trapping competition on a
nearby dock.
The term "rodeo" was used to
demonstrate a fun, social atmos-
phere.
"It's a refresher training care-
fully disguised as fun," Smith said.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission had a
table busy with interested com-
munity members. Officers Bobby
Dube and John Jacox answered
numerous questions, pointing
and gauging plastic lobsters to
demonstrate the correct way to
catch the spiny creatures.
The Key West police and fire
departments, Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary, U.S.
Coast Guard, FWC, Monroe
County Sheriff's Office, Lower
Keys Medical Center and the col-
lege lined up booths layered with
informative brochures and cheery
spokespeople.
A Sheriff's Office rescue heli-
copter landed in the parking lot,
while a 33-foot Coast Guard boat
plus a fire truck were parked
nearby.
"The Coast Guard plays a big
role in diving," Coast Guard
Sector Key West Commanding
Officer Scott Buschman said. "If
there is an accident out there,.we
are the first ones to get the call."
Buschman came to the Keys
right before last mini-season,
after which he started working
with other-community leaders to
organize Monday's event.
"There have been 20 dive- and
snorkel-related deaths since- I've
been in the Keys for a year," he
said. "The whole Dive Alive pro-
gram is geared to a year-round
safety program to promote diving
safety."
Buschman said dive mistakes
usually fit into one of three sepa-
rate categories: people who have
little experience diving and go
beyond their capabilities, people
who have a tremendous amount
of experience and get compla-
cent, or those who have preexist-
ing medical conditions.

Tentative budget OK'd


It's still over
rollback, more
slicing possible
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Despite efforts to draft a budg-
et for 2007-08 that would be 5
percent lower than this year's, the
Monroe County Commission on
Monday unanimously approved a
first-draft budget nearly 6 percent
over rollback.
Rollback is the term given to a
taxing rate that would raise the
same amount of money next year
as the current year.
The commission approved an
aggregate millage rate of 2.88,
meaning the average county tax
rate would be $288 per $100,000
of taxable property value.
Currently homeowners pay
$312 per $100,000 of assessed
taxable property value.
County taxes on a $500,000
home not protected by homestead
this year are $1,560. The tentative
rate approved for next year would
reduce that to $1,440 on the same


$500,000 house.
There's an aggregate of
$83.47 million proposed in ad
valorem taxes. For the current

Zappulla told the commission.
"What we have to do is bring our
taxes to 5 percent below this
year's."
Zappulla said he thinks that by
the time the commission recon-
venes for three public hearings in
September to finalize the budget,
he will be able to roll it back to
where the Legislature mandated.
Over two days, the County
Commission heard reports from
each county department; many
reduced their budgets by the
requested 5 percent, some as
much as 25 percent.
Reggie Paros, who heads the
Housing and Community
Services Department, said he was
able to cut 25 percent by doing
away with many contracted serv-
ices.
"We were using quite a bit for
affordable housing," Paros said,
including some Tallahassee con-
sulting firms. "Those have been
reduced, and we have better con-
trol on local contracts."
Zappulla said the main reason
the budget is higher than he
hoped is that Building
Department fees cannot be fig-
ured into general revenue. That
means nearly $2 million in rev-
enue cannot be figured into the
overall property-tax budget.
Each year the commission
must certify a millage rate that is
then sent to the county property
appraiser, who in turn generates a
Truth in Millage Notice. That
notice goes to all property owners
to show their proposed taxes for
the coming year.
However, since the county has
enacted a number of regional
municipal taxing districts to pay
for sewers, the aggregate rate
does not really represent a good
average, Zappulla said. Most
property owners will see a rate
lower than the 2.88 because that
aggregate encompasses every
one of the municipal taxing dis-
tricts.
Nearly $41.5 million in
planned spending for countywide
services goes to the Sheriff's
Office budget.
"Our first plan was to submit a
flat budget," Sheriff Rick Roth
told the commission, "Then we
were asked to cut another 5 per-
cent. We made more cuts, and we
are proposing exactly a 5 percent
reduction, as requested."
Fire and ambulance, local
road patrols and Growth
Management add another $14.9"
to the proposed 2007-08 budget.

Board OK's


college budget


State to cover
2006-07 deficit,
chairman says
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Before Florida Keys Com-
munity College Board of
Trustees Chairman Ed Scales
bestowed the honor of president
emeritus to outgoing college
President William Seeker
Monday evening, the board
approved a fiscally conservative,
balanced budget as well as a flat
raise for all employees.
The coming year's budget,
$8,732,893, is hardly more than
2006-07's operating budget,
which is $8,701,039.
But the difference is large
enough that the budget year just
ended showed a deficit while the
coming year's plan presented a
balanced budget, college spokes-
woman Lydia Estonez has said.
But Scales said the budget
just ended was not actually
unbalanced because the state
promised to close a $200,000
deficit from recurring legislative
funds.
The 2007-08 budget boasts
$1.3 million in a rainy-day fund,
which is about 15 percent of the
overall budget.
The board also approved a flat
raise of $1,000 per employee.
That increase will carry over to
next year.
"This is tough because the
staff needs more than this,"
board member Ann Henderson
said. "The state is not doing
well."
Seeker asked that employees
receive their lump sum before
Christmas.
"This is about as safe as we
can get," Seeker said.
Individual raises for two
employees were also given, one
of which was for an increase of
$2,704 and presented to the
board at the last minute.
Members at first did not feel
comfortable approving a raise.
"Are people getting increases
on top of increases?" board
member Carey Goodman asked,
reiterating that she wants to see
an objective standard by which
raises are distributed among fac-


ulty.
The fiscal year for the college
begins July 1, which is why the
budget is typically approved dur-
ing the June board meeting. The
delay for approval came at the
heels of some legislative compli-
cations.
Gov. Charlie Crist vetoed the
Legislature's proposed 5 percent
tuition hike for students, but col-
leges still had the option of plac-
ing that hike on vocational class-
es such as criminology. The col-
lege will not enact those tuition
hikes, as instructed by the U.S.
Department of Education,
because that money can be taken
from an allowed 8 percent waiv-
er, the amount of the increase.
"It was a $2,000 increase for
the school," Scales said. "But we
can go back and give waivers for
the increase."
But for schools like Miami-
Dade College, the hit was much
worse, Scales said, something in
the range of hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars.
With more questions
answered, the board passed the
measure.
Seeker, president for 28 years,
received a standing ovation from
audience members before his last
board meeting adjourned.
When retiring, Seeker said,
some people like to say "take this
job and shove it."
"But I can't say that," he said.
"I love this campus, the college
and all of you."
Goodman was also given a
plaque for two years of service as
board chairman. Scales led his
first meeting as chairman, while
newly appointed trustee Kim
Bassett attended her first meet-
ing.
The board also discussed
completing its wireless Internet
project, remodeling old buildings
and walkways, and a dredging
project to improve the Key
Channel area, where divers prac-
tice for class.
President-elect Jill Landesberg-
Boyle, who was on vacation dur-
ing the meeting, will take the
reigns in August and push her
new marketing strategy in an
effort to increase enrollment.
The next board meeting is
scheduled for 5 p.m. Aug. 27.


County planning chief resigns


But position
will be filled,
official says
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Staffing cutbacks and a hir-
ing freeze in county govern-
ment don't mean vital public
servants will be lost.
Case in point: Aref Joulani.
The Monroe County planning.
director submitted his resigna-
tion Friday. But the position
will not sit empty.
"It will be decided on a case-
by-case basis," Assistant
County Administrator Debbie
Frederick said.- "It depends on
the function, whether the serv-
ice could be provided without
that position."
Joulani represents one of the
longer-term staffers in the
Planning Department, with
seven years under his belt. He
said his last day is Aug. 17.
"The county Planning
Department has done a lot of
work over the past seven years,"
Joulani said Tuesday. "We've


created a Tavernier master plan,
a Stock Island master plan.
We've improved the perform-
ance of the department and the
time it takes to get things done."
Frederick said replacing
Joulani is a no-brainer, especial-
ly because his position falls
within the Growth Management
Department.
"Growth Management gen-
erates their own funds," she
said. "A lot of their positions do
not affect the county's general
fund."
Turnover in the department
has been fast the past year and a
half. One growth management
director and two planning direc-
tors have resigned, as have
numerous staffers.
The department languished
for months with a severe
staffing shortage.
Growth Management
Director Drew Trivette told the
County Commission during a
budget workshop Monday his
department is finally close to
fully staffed. The department,
which includes building inspec-
tors and Code Enforcement, has


71 employees.
Frederick said Trivette hopes
to replace Joulani with someone
already working in planning.
The county has come under
fire in recent weeks for what
Trivette and County
Administrator Tom Willi say is
a reorganization of Growth
Management.
On July 11, Marine
Resources Director George
Garrett and Marine Projects
Coordinator Kim McGee were
given termination letters. The
single remaining staffer in the
department, Senior Marine
Planner Rich Jones, was moved
into planning.
Willi has said Garrett and
McGee are no longer effective
in their positions, but residents
have voiced frustration that a
county surrounded by water
will no longer have a Marine
Resources Department.
Trivette told the County
Commission Monday he's
"looking at changing the divi-
sion title to reflect the change."
If that happens, he said, plan-
ning would become the Marine,
Environmental and Planning
Department.

Four charged in deputy's beating


An off-duty Monroe County
Sheriff's Office deputy leaving
an Islamorada bar early Sunday.
was beaten and kicked in the
parking lot without provocation,
agency officials said.
Four men from Naples were
arrested following the incident.
Here's what happened,
Deputy Becky Herrin said:
Deputy Steven Barney, 50,
was at Woody's at mile marker
81.6 for a couple of hours drink-
ing Coca Cola and smoking a
cigar before leaving at
12:30 a.m.
He walked out with a friend,
each walking to their respective
cars. The friend was getting into
his car when he heard Barney
call for help. He ran to help him
but after being punched in the
jaw, ran to get help from securi-
ty guards in the bar.
When deputies arrived, they
found Barney on the ground
next to his car. A security guard
from Woody's detained one of
the suspects and the other was
pointed out by bystanders. As
those two were taken into cus-
tody, they fought with deputies;
one had to be subdued with a
stun gun. Two other men with
them struggled with deputies

and tried to help the suspects
while they were being arrested.
Witnesses from the bar said
the four were in Woody's earlier
but were kicked out after starting
fights. They were allowed back
in, but were kicked out again after
one of them climbed on the stage
and announced he was going to
beat someone up. They apparent-
ly stayed in the parking lot after
being kicked out, and beat up
Barney without provocation.
Two bartenders who served
Barney that night said he simply
sat at the bar talking to his friend
and staff, and that he never, had
contact with the four suspects.
Arrested were Dale Tatum, 39,
charged with aggravated battery
and battery; Shane Miller, 36,
charged with aggravated battery;
and Charles Tatum, 66, and
Charles Singletary, 35, charged
with resisting arrest without vio-
lence.
Barney was treated at
Mariners Hospital for bruises
and bite marks.

Another deputy beat
In another incident in which a
deputy allegedly was beat, Stock


Island resident Joseph Chakos,
51, was charged Saturday night
with battery on a law enforce-
ment officer and resisting arrest
with violence, as well as posses-
sion of cocaine.
Herrin said Deputy Evan
Calhoun was on patrol around
9:30 p.m. and stopped Chakos
on Front Street for not having a
light on his bicycle.
Chakos reportedly had a
knife clipped to his back pocket,
Calhoun took it and then asked
Chakos if he could pat him down
for other weapons.
Herrin said when Calhoun pat-
ted Chakos' front pocket, he felt a
square object that rattled.
Calhoun, fearing the item was
another weapon, tried to remove
Chakos' hand from the pocket and
Chakos began to fight, she said.
Calhoun called for backup
and during the struggle, Chakos
reportedly hit him several times.
Calhoun Tasered him twice but
Chakos quickly recovered and
continued fighting, Herrin said.
When backup deputies
arrived, Chakos was taken into
custody. In his pocket was a con-
tainer with nine crack rocks,
Herrin said.


Audit clears


fired staffer


Young has two
lawsuits pending
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Former Key West Chief Code
Enforcement Officer Jim Young
says that since former City
Manager Julio Avael fired him
Oct. 13, various attempts have
been made to soil his name on
top of what he calls an unjust ter-
mination.
The most recent action was an
audit ordered on Young over to
transient-rental investigations,
which reportedly clears Young of
wrongdoing, he said.
"In their attempt to try and
slander me, [City Commissioner
Harry] Bethel requested an
eight-month audit to prove I was
a crook," Young said.
"I'm not trying to slander
anyone," Bethel said. "I just
wanted to see if the funds from
[investigations] were budgeted,
and if they were expended
appropriately."
Various sources say internal
auditor Kat Watts has completed
Young's audit and it shows no
evidence of wrongdoing by him.
Watts declined to comment on
results of the audit, citing state
statue prohibiting the release of
such information until it is pre-
sented to the City Commission.
"Avael said Young stole
$20,000 from the undercover
fund," said Hugh Morgan,
Young's attorney, Morgan added'
that audit reports indicate Young
did not.
Avael said attorney Tim
Koenig was concerned that
money was inappropriately used
at guesthouses and bed and
breakfasts "via the phantom


company and credit card during
the investigations of transient
rentals," as Avael wrote in an e-
mail sent July 31, 2006.
Koenig represented a vaca-
tion-rental company, Historic
Hideaways, which was cited for
violating the city's zoning. The
charges came after one of
Young's investigations, Young
said. The company paid a fine of
$19,900.
Young claims that in his first
four months of investigations,
(he started work in November
2004) his department issued 220
citations for transient-rental vio-
lations.
Assistant City Manager John
Jones agreed Young was cleared
through the audit.
"It came out OK," Jones said.
At the July 17 'City
Commission meeting, Watts was
expected to present the audit but
Commissioner Dan Kolhage
pulled it from the agenda.
The expenses were originally
reviewed by Finance Director
Roger Wittenberg.
"I don't know if I really did
an audit," Wittenberg said.. "I
didn't find any improprieties. All
I was looking for was backup for
the expenditures."
Since Young's firing, he's
been on an eighth-month mission
to collect information on city
employees and actions that led
him to file two separate lawsuits
against the city, one for wrongful
termination, the other alleging
the city won't give him public
information.
Young was in court July 10
before Circuit Court Judge Mark
Jones for his public-information
request.
The wrongful-termination
suit depends on if the city is able
to produce deleted e-mails,
which are public information.
That information would serve as
evidence in the case.
City Attorney Shawn Smith
says the city has "no idea" what
happened to some of the e-mails,
but "we've produced over
12,000 records to him,"
Smith said.
Morgan hired an independent
comiputei forensic examiner
from NMiami who claims he can
relnel e the deleted e-mails.

Rains slam parts of Keys over weekend


Key Largo and
Marathon hit
especially hard
Rains pounded the Florida
Keys over the weekend, but
depending on where you were,
you might not have known it.
According to the National
Weather Service in Key West,
rain at Florida Keys Marathon
Airport Saturday afternoon
measured 2.23 inches.
In Taverier, 1.7 inches were
recorded, and stationary Key
Largo thunderstorms resulted in
the agency issuing a flood advi-
sory for that area Saturday
afternoon and evening. Rain at
John Pennekamp Coral Reef
-State Park measured 1.14 inch-
es during the period.
Several miles west of
Pennekamp, an unofficial
measurement in excess of 4


inches was reported, from a
spotter; most of it fell in fewer
than two hours.
However, in the Lower
Keys, rainfall was sparse
Saturday, with only a few
tenths of an inch reported in
some locations, and none in
others.
Sunday, the rainfall was
more widespread.
The Upper Keys once again
appeared to get the worst of it,
and the station at Pennekamp
reported 2.65 inches of rain,
most of which fell in about an
hour. Another urban flood state-
ment wvas issued for about the
same area as the day before.
But in Marathon, no rain fell
- it was virtually the only
island in the chain that
remained dry, and in fact it was
a beautiful Middle Keys day,
sunny with little humidity.


The Lower Keys had a few
very heavy thunderstorms, but
while a few locations were
inundated, others remained
largely dry, just missing on the
heavier rain.
Sunday on Big Pine Key, an


unofficial measurement of 2
inches came from an off-duty
Weather Service employee.
However, one of the agency's
instruments on a different part
of Big Pine recorded only 0.34
inches.


The agency's instrument at
Key West International Airport
officially recorded only a trace
of rain Sunday, but radar esti-
mates indicate that more than 2
inches fell in some other Lower
Keys locations.

Cheeca investors file lawsuit


They're claiming
mismanagement
of contract
By DOUGLAS HANKS
dhanks@miamiherald.com

Condo-hotel developer
Robert Falor faces a new lawsuit
over his ownership interest in
Islamorada's Cheeca Lodge.
The Chicago developer, who
has feuded with partners in sev-
eral South Florida hotel projects,


now must fight a lawsuit in
Monroe County from investors
claiming mismanagement and
breach of contract.
At issue: Falor and partners'
15 percent stake .in the posh
Islamorada resort, an investment
that marked his entry in South
Florida's then-surging market
for condo-hotels four years ago.
A string of projects followed
- including conversion efforts
at South Beach's Royal Palm
and Breakwater hotels and


Coconut Grove's Mayfair but
each eventually put Falor in con-
flict with business associates.
A spokeswoman for Cheeca's
majority owner, Jerry Johnson of
Johnson Resort Properties in
Jackson, Wyo., said the dispute
will not affect operations "in any
way" at the resort and that
Johnson and Falor remain "ami-
cable" partners.
"I do not foresee this lawsuit
advancing to any substantial
level, and this appears to be an

Miami Herald

Two of three former Post,
Buckley, Schuh and Jernigan
officials who participated in a
$36 million embezzlement at
the engineering consulting firm
have been sentenced to prison.
Former Chief -Financial
Officer W. Scott DeLoach -
who used proceeds from the

faces just over eight years in
federal prison for his part in the
scheme.
DeLoach also received two
years for his guilty plea to
using "strawmen" to illegally
contribute $11,000 to the 2004
campaign of U.S. Sen. Mel
Martinez. The sentences will
run concurrently.
Rosario Licata, a former
PBS&J manager, was sen-
tenced to 63 months for partic-
ipating in the embezzlement.
"Justice has been served,"
John Zumwalt, PBS&J's chair-
man and chief executive, said
after the sentencing.
Sentencing was delayed for
former PBS&J accounting
manager Maria Garcia. Senior
U.S. District Judge James
Lawrence King postponed her
sentencing so he could review
documents her lawyers filed
under seal.
Assistant U.S. Attorney
Joan Silverstein recommended
to King that Garcia receive a
66-month sentence, below the


minimum recommended 78
months, because Garcia first
alerted authorities to the
embezzlement scheme.
Garcia's lawyers, though,
want a much lighter sentence.
They credit Garcia with open-
ing the door for authorities to
investigate illegal campaign
contributions and overbilling
of government agencies by
PBS&J.
Two former PBS&J chair-
men,, Richard Wickett and H.
Michael Dye, are charged with


conspiring to violate cam-
paign-finance laws, including
using company funds to donate
to candidates and reimbursing
employees for contributions.
Dye is expected to plead
guilty; Wickett is fighting the
charge.

Buckley was a consulting firm
for Monroe County for 30
years until the county sued
over what it said was wasted
bond money to rebuild the

Road in 1993.
The suit alleged Post,
Buckley's $11 million estimate
cost the county $475,000 to
void the bond issue; Florida
Rock and Sand ended up
rebuilding and raising Card
Sound for $3.1 million.
The county ultimately lost
the suit in 2005 after a decade
in the courts.

Monster Seafood
A colorful mural and bright
blue facade mark the new home
of seafood seller Lobster
Monster, 10977 Overseas

from Office Depot.
Judith Valladares said she
and her husband Denny moved
the family-owned and operated


store to its new location July 4
after seven years of selling
seafood from their processing
house on 20th Street. The cou-
ple will continue to process
their catch on 20th Street but
will sell it at their new, high-
visibility store.
"This is a good location,"
Valladares said of the former
law office. "It will be easier for
our customers, and we can
expand. We're on U.S. 1 -
everybody will see us now."
Valladares said offerings
include lobster, crab claws,
Key West shrimp, grouper,
tilapia and locally caught snap-
per fillets. Lobster Monster
ships fresh seafood anywhere
in the U.S. and also operates a
meat market, Valladares said.

spent the last 2 1/2 years at
Southwind Mall.
Taylor said she and her two
employees offer tattooing, tat-
too cover-ups and body pierc-

ing selling for more than $50, or
to any school supply item selling

legal pads, composition books,
poster paper, scissors, cellophane
tape, glue or paste, rulers, com-
puter disks, protractors, compass-

investors in Cheeca Lodge
Manager claim the company
improperly distributed nearly
$500,000 to entities with ties to
Falor or Hockman. When the
investors hired an accountant to
look at the books, the company
provided financial records with
certain entries blacked out and
redacted, according to the suit.
"We've been trying over a
year to get accounting informa-
tion," said Alvin Lodish, the
Bilzin Sumberg lawyer repre-
senting the investors. "We're
concerned about the misman-
agement in general of the enti-
ty."


A lawyer for Cheeca Lodge
Manager, Glenn Widom of
Miami's Silver Garvett Henkell,
declined to comment. Falor did
not return a phone message left
on his cellphone Tuesday after-
noon. Hockman said in a state-
ment released by Johnson
Resorts that, "We look forward
to the opportunity to demon-
strate that this lawsuit is being
brought against the entity with-
out merit or basis."
The suit asks a judge to
appoint a receiver to take over
management of Cheeca Lodge
Manager and audit its financial
records.

gy is a good one, since there is no
doubt that at least some of the esti-
mated 30,000 lobster-crazed visi-
tors expected in the Keys will try to
sneak a few illegal bugs past law
enforcement

ing his bedroom walls into an Etch-A-
Sketch, guilty fisherman often dream up
laughable excuses on the spot.
"Adults are just like kids when it comes
to excuses," FWC Officer David Dipre
said. "And [the FWC is] no different from
parents. Did you eat the chocolate cake? Is
that your lobster?"
-Some telltale signs of a guilty lobster
hunter or fisherman:
Sitting on their cooler as soon as an
FWC officer approaches their boat.
The boat passengers in question dump
lobster and fish off the side before asking
an FWC officer, "What fish? I didn't throw
an\ ft'ih over." This one gets officers partic-
ularl\ steamed, as they have to dive in and
retric\ e the evidence to send the violator to
jail for obstruction.
Shifting uncomfortably while trying
to offer their excuses.
They try to place the blame on one of
their buddies "I thought the guy on the
boat 'v. as supposed to gauge the size of the
lobster."
Violators claim the fish was flopping
artounrd and they wanted to spare it from its
nmier\. or "hate to see it go to waste."
Violators say they didn't even know
there was a lobster season (even though
they came down specifically for lobster
season).
A "fisherman" asks, "I need a
license?" "Well, everywhere else
in the United States you need a
license," Dipre said.
He or she says, "Oh,
someone came by and gave
.jl me those fish," as if Christmas
came early and Santa Claus
swapped out the stuffy red cotton
for a sleek swimsuit and boat.
Dipre recalled spotting a man by
rocks aiming a spear gun at some-
S thing in the water last weekend
(lobster cannot be hunted with
spear guns).
Approached, he denied wrong-
doing to officers. Dipre and some
i fellow officers jumped into the water

Cancer patients
Tinfneed of drivers

In the Keys, many cancer
patients need daily or weekly
treatments over the course of
several months but many do not
have a car, are too ill to drive
-themselves or don't have a fam-
ily 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 American Cancer
Society at 292-2333 or Janie
Rodriguez at 304-4106 to find
out more.

The crowds are huge at a past Native Plant Fair. It's no wonder, sincethe goods are free.


Free plants ready to go


Conservancy's
annual fair
set for Aug. 4
The Nature Conservancy's
Florida Keys Program wants
to help you green up your
yard.
It hopes to do so by hosting
its annual Native Plant Fair


from 9 a.m. to noon Aug. 4 at
the Big Pine Neighborhood
Charter School, mile marker
30.4 ocean, where 1,500 plants
will be given away, no charge.
Initiated in 1999 in
response to Hurricane Georges
the previous year, the Native
Plant Fair is designed to
encourage Keys residents to


landscape with native plants
by providing thousands of
draught-tolerant specimens to
families and individuals -
free.
A variety of plants will be
offered 18 species of trees,
13 varieties of shrubs and nine
types of ground covers. The
limit is two per person.
Such native plants provide
vital habitat and food for
wildlife and migratory birds,
and help preserve the original
ecological character of the
Keys.
As part of the fair's goal of
raising awareness of local
plant species and natural com-
munities, there will be a series
of presentations and staffed
educational booths.
Featuring speakers and
organizations from throughout
the Keys, these educational
components provide a wonder-
ful opportunity for local
organizations to showcase
their efforts in environmental
education and conservation.
Presentations from local
experts on butterfly gardening
and water conservation as well
as a rain-barrel workshop will
also be featured.
The event is made possible
by a grant from the South
Florida Water Management
District to The Nature
Conservancy's 2006/2007

Many excuses are plain lame


MINI-SEASON / From 18

to get the spear which had a
lobster at the end of it.
"That's not mine,' Dipre
recalled the man saying sheep-
ishly. "I mean, that's my spear
but it's not my lobster. I speared
a fish." In a desperate attempt to
sell his innocence, the man tried
to appear as though he really
aimed for a fish.
"Ah, the lobster probably
jumped in front of the fish to
save its life," Dipre mused.
"Where is there 'stupid' written
on my face?"
The man went to jail on four
misdemeanor resource-violation
charges.
Another excuse, according to

Dipre, is that violators claim
they were taught how to measure
the lobster but were taught
incorrectly.
"They'll tell us sometimes
like, 'My brother's friend's
cousin's sister showed us how to


measure these things,'" he said.
Throughout mini-season,
many people are asked if they
understand the rules of catching
lobster.
Said Dipre, "The saddest
thing is they say no."

Some prep athletes
to be tested for steroids

Florida high-school athletes
who take part in football, base-
ball or weightlifting are now
subject to random steroid testing
under a one-year pilot program
signed into law by Gov. Charlie
Crist.
The Florida High School
Athletics Association will super-
vise the testing. Its membership
includes 426 public schools and
224 private schools all sub-
ject to the law that took effect
July 1.
"The intent clearly is to pro-
tect them," Crist said. "I know
it's somewhat intrusive whenev-
er somebody is testing you on
anything but this is for their ben-
efit and health and it's the right
thing to do."
The steroids testing was
pushed through largely by

The mate for team Giggling Marlin from Islamorada prepares to release a white marlin in the
25th Drambuie Blue Marlin Tournament off Key West. The team captained by Jack Strack also
released a blue marlin, which secured the $25,000 grand-champion check.


Stracks take Drambuie


Father, son
earn $25,000
for marlins

The 25th edition of the
Drambuie Key West Marlin
Tournament is in the books.
The three-day event over the
weekend had it all a different
leader each day, a come-from-
behind victory, a snake-bit team
of heartbreak proportions and a
typical Drambuie pesky bite of
billfish.
When it was over, Team
Giggling Marlin .from
Islamorada, comprising father
Jack Strack and son Jeff, came
out on top and was awarded a
cool $25,000.
This year, the rules were
tweaked to create more interest
for competitors so white marlin
and spearfish would count as
equals to the mighty blue, accord-
ing to tournament Director Scott
Greene.
"History shows that there are
fewer white marlin and spearfish
caught, in this tourmnment than
blue inarlin," he said. "VWe lis-
tened to past participants on how


to make the
tournament
a little
more excit-
ing and it,
S seemed like
the natural
move."
The rule
change met
with some
negative
reviews
from some
CalSutphin competi-
tors who
feel opening up equal points to
white marlin and spearfish dimin-
ishes how tough it is to leader a
blue marlin.
Capt. Ken Harris, 2001 winner
and runner-up in last year's event,
thinks blue marlin should still be
worth more due to their size. Blue
marlin can reach weights into the
1,000-pound range, although
blue marlin that swim Keys
waters are more likely to average
200 to 300 pounds, while white
marlin and spearfish averaging
closer to 70..
The Day 1 leaders, captains
Rob and Missy Harris and Joe
Messer, had the first boat to hook


a marlin, on the Easy Rider out of
the King's Pointe Marina on
Stock Island. Rob Harris knew
when it hit that it was a big fish,
but wasn't sure until it was boat
side what it even was.
"Figuring the fish was the
only one we saw all day, my
memory is very vivid," he said.
"Something hit our Alien XL in
our short rigger position and our
50-wide started singing. The fish
never jumped as it ran 300 yards
of line, and I could barely make
out a huge head coming out of the
water shaking everyplace.
"When Joe reeled the fish to
about 80 yards out, I saw a silver
flash and I yelled that it could be
a huge wahoo. When the fish got
up behind the boat and I could
finally see him flick his tail, it
was that unmistakable sickle tail
and I knew we had our marlin."
He added, "The fish never
jumped once."
Team Easy Rider solidified its
third-place finish by nailing a
39.7-pound wahoo the final day,
and coupled with a 25.3-pound
dolphin Day, 2, finished with 465
points. That's 400 points for the

Keys Fishing


Wednesday, July 25, 2007


Expect lots of boat traffic this week


Lobster madness is on!
Here we are, right in the mid-
dle of the craziest time of the year
in the Keys, with tens of thou-
sands of people with bugs on the
brain for the two-day lobster
mini-season that runs today and
ends at midnight Thursday.
There are more people in
search of tail than when a Navy
ship returns to port after six
months at sea. Remember, there
are plenty of areas for all to have
fun in the Keys, so don't crowd
and all will enjoy.
For the divers, everyone will
give you the times of high and
low tide, but what you need for
the channels is the time of slack
tide.
Bahia Honda and the Seven
Mile Bridge have a slack tide
around 8 a.m. and 3:40 and 10:15
p.m. today. Thursday, it's 9:15
a.m. and 4:20 and just after
11 p.m.
For Tom's Harbor and the
Long Key Bridge, it's 8:15 a.m.
and 4 and 10:30 p.m. today, and
9:30 a.m. and 5 and 11:15 p.m.
Thursday.
Give or take a few minutes on
all. This is when you can dive
without being swept out to sea at
these locations. Good luckand be
careful.
Besides the lobster, we have
some great fishing going on.
Following are some of the
options.
Now is a good time to go fish-
ing offshore because you are not


apt. to run

Dave Navarro can really

her breath.
Dolphin are here and so are
wahoo and tunas, and the odds of
having too much company are
low. The only problem is getting
to the reef line without feeling
you are driving through a pinball
machine.
One of the problems with nav-
igating with all the boats out there
during mini-season is that some
of them have developed bug
brains. This is to say they are
looking for lobster and aren't
much worried about anything
else. The best thing to do is give
wide berth to dive boats, espe-
cially those that are trolling
divers in search of lobster.
This type of technique is very
productive except that some don't
have a problem with leaving a
diver that has dropped off the
towline well aft of their boat. This
can cause a problem, as it is diffi-
cult to see a diver in the water,


especially with wave action. You
may think you are well clear of
them and then find that there is a
diver right in front of you.
This is more so a possibility in
the bay and around the bridge
channels than on the oceanside.
Speaking of the bridge chan--
nels, this is one of the most con-
gested areas you will find, partic-
ularly around the period of slack
tide. There are times you cannot
see a boat in the area and still find
a diver in the channel. The best
way to handle this without ruin-
ing either yours or the diver's day
is to slow down, take a little more
time and make sure you can get
through without incident. This
will help keep everyone's day a
good one.
Simply put, it's going to be
crowded; accept it and deal with
it properly.
Night fishing is also a great
bet, as the moon is in a favorable
phase for the fish to bite. The reef
is your best bet with yellowtail,
muttons and numerous grouper
available. The mangrove snapper
bite is on so thick that you should
not have any problem obtaining
your limit quickly. Forty-five to
90 feet of water has been on fire
for more than a week now.
Live bait such as pinfish and
shrimp is best but squid, bally-
hoo, glass minnows and silver-
sides are also great. Take plenty
of good chum for best results.
This is your last week of open
waters for night fishing, as the


lobster traps hit the aqua soon in
anticipation of the Aug. 6 open-
ing of commercial lobster season.
The rock humps along Hawk
Channel are also a good bet for
night fishing.
Drifting both the channels and
the reef patches has been excep-
tional as of late. Live baits or
rigged squid have been good,
producing big grouper, very nice
yellowtail and some huge man-
grove snapper. If you hit a spot
with several bites in a small area,
you may want to anchor and give
it some time to see if you have
found a good school.
The flats are another good bet
for anglers during this frenzy of
divers. They can produce some
very good fishing as well as some
exciting entertainment with all of
the novice boaters around (they
couldn't understand why you
were pushing your boat with a
pole until they hit bottom). It will


also give you some protection_
There have been plenty of
bonefish early and permit
throughout the day. With all the
traffic around the bridge chan-
nels, tarpon should be relocating
to the flats for peace and quiet as
well as to feed. For fun fishing,
the flats are teeming with all.%ais
of barracuda and quite a few
sharks right now, so there should
be plenty to cast to.
If you're diving, have fun,
good luck and be safe. If you're
fishing, have fun, good luck and
be safe.
And if you have to go to the
grocery store in the afternoon and
find.yourself near the butter sec-
tion, good luck.

One jig, 8 releases, a win


Achenberg takes
Matecumbe event

Islamorada Village Council-.
man Don Achenbdrg released
seven snook and one jack
crevalle for 107 points, to win.
last week's annual One Jig
Tournament staged by the
Islamorada Matecumbe Anglers.
Twenty-two club members
participating in the event, in
which it's just one jig per angler
- you lose it, you're out of the
tournament. Participants were
allowed to fish their one lure
from sun-up to 1 p.m. or until it
was lost, whichever came first.
The contest was based on a


point system with a bonefish,
permit, pompano or snook
release resulting in 15 points. A
cero mackerel, mutton snapper,
redfish, tarpon or tripletail result-
ed in 10 points.
A grouper, mangrove snapper,
trout or yellowtail garnered three
points; and a barracuda, jack
crevalle or ladyfish got two
points.
Tipping your jig with natural
bait was allowed.
Of the targeted species, snook,
mutton snapper, grouper, jack
crevalle and trout were all cap-
tured. Two cobia and two large
barjack were also caught and
released by competing anglers,
but with no resulting points.


Second place went to Dave
Demos with 40 points resulting
from two snook and one mutton
snapper.
Club Vice President Joe
Baltes released two snook, one
trout and one jack crevalle for 35
five points and third place.
Fourth went to Diana Pisaris,
with three grouper captured for
nine points.
Achenberg attributed his win
to the careful re-tying of his pre-
cious jig after each of his eight
releases an excellent habit to
practice when you only have one
jig for the day. He will be the
tournament chairman in 2008.
Hookup Lures provided the

Proving that one fish can win

Coming into the final day of

Tallahassee man
wins Del Brown

Doug Behrman of Tallahassee
caught eight permit on fly to win
the 2007 Del Brown Invitational
Permit Tournament honoring the
late angling legend.
Behrman earned the title of
grand champion last week fish-
ing with Capt. Diego Rouylle of
Little Torch Key. Rouylle was
named grand-champion guide.
Warren Hinrichs of
Jacksonville caught six permit to
earn the title of runner-up grand
champion. He was guided by
Capt. Kris Suplee of Marathon.
John Abplanalp of Stamford,
Conn., was named first runner-up
angler for scoring four permit.
He fished with Capt. Jeffrey

Anglers on 14 boats caught a

had them in contention with
seven other boats for top honors.,
Deciding to win the tourna-
ment outright and not to just rack
up fun-fish points, the team
fished skirted horse ballyhoo
before it had a taker blue around
9:30 a.m. Twenty-five minutes
and a successful release of a blue
marlin later, the Stracks found
themselves perched atop the 56-
boat field with 822.6 points,
nervously hoping the other seven
teams did not have similar luck
landing a marlin.
By 3 p.m. when lines out was
announced, the 25th Drambuie
was theirs, as well as the $25,000
grand prize.
Finishing as runner-up with
800 points was team On Course.
Mike Zalewski from Tampa
released a blue marlin worth 400
points Day 1. Dan Harrington
from Tierra Verde released a
spearfish worth 400 points Day 2.
Bill Currie from Tampa is captain
of the On Course.
The heartbreak team of the
tournament had to have been the
Finesse out of Key Haven, with
Ken and Clay Harris receiving
the brunt of bad luck.
Clay said, "Around 2 p.m., me
and dad were talking about how
we never get a marlin bite after.
noon, when immediately our 80-
wide starts to go off. After I pick
up the rod, strap myself in and
drop back, the blue went crazy and
was jumping straight for the boat.
"I throw it in gear and try to,
retrieve line as the blue charges at


us. The marlin missed jumping
into the boat by about 30 feet and
with a big bow in the line just
couldn't get tight on him. Finally
I caught up to him and came tight
and he just non-stop jumped
away from the boat, towards the
boat, at me, away from me, and
he never settled down.
"Finally he dives down and I
start cranking him in like I've
done quite a few times before.
Then all of a sudden it went com-
pletely slack. I took two or three
cranks on the handle and there
was the swivel and no marlin.
What a heartbreak."
He said they estimated the fish
in the mid-200-pound range.
The tournament went south
from there for team Finesse.
On Day 2 while drifting live
blue runners again, a white mar-
lin picks up one of their baits and
immediately swims up with it,
not even alerting the Harrises to
his presence. By the time they
realized the jumping white was
hooked to their rod, it spit the
bait. They also lost a 40-pound
dolphin that picked up bait on
their 80-wide and lost a sail as
well on the final day.
Their luck would change late
in the game, as team Finesse was
able to salvage dignity with the
tournament's top dolphin, 49.6-
pounder.
The Drambuie fielded 324
anglers aboard 56 boats and over-
all, anglers hooked and released
seven blue marlin, two whites
and one spearfish.
