of his girlfriend
By KRISTEN BURNIE
and KEVIN WADLOW
kbumie@keysreporter.com


A Key Largo woman who
called police for help Friday
morning was apparently killed
by her boyfriend, who fired shots
at police during a six-hour stand-
off that ended with his surrender.
The typically quiet, over-55
community of Silver Shores was
blocked off by Monroe County
Sheriff's Office deputies, who
treated the standoff as a hostage
situation.after 42 year-old Andrew
Beckner of Key Largo told police
a woman was inside the home at
914 South Emerald Drive.
After the suspect surrendered
at 1:24 p.m., police found 46-
year-old Georgia Morgan dead
inside of a gunshot wound.

Tax notices


start arriving


Budget hearings
are next step
for 2007-08
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Most Keys governments and
agencies with the ability to
impose taxes are telling resi-
dents not to worry, that the pro-
posed tax notices that went out
this week and started arriving in
mailboxes from Key Largo to
Key West will likely be lowered


by the time they need to write a
check.
The Monroe County Property
Appraiser's Office mailed the
Truth in Millage, or TRIM,
Monday. The notices serve to let
taxpayers know just how much
their coming tax bills would be
if tax rates proposed across the
county are approved during pub-
lic hearings next month.
"I'm confident we can bring
it down where it needs to be,"
See TAkESi / 8

'American Idol'


hopes end early


Bishop sings but

Hollywood cut
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

After more than 10 hours of
waiting in line over two days,
Casey Bishop's first shot at star-
dom ticked down to 30 seconds.
The Coral Shores High
School senior faced an anony-
nious panel of "American Idol"
screeners Wednesday and let


loose with the chorus from
Martina McBride's "When God-
Fearin' Women Get the Blues."
"I really believe I sang my
best. I'm happy about that,"
Bishop, 17, recounted. "I wasn't
nervous at all, which surprised
me."
But her "Idol" quest ended
there with a thanks-for-coming
exit.
Staffers snipped off her white
"American Idol" wristband, the
one they issue to auditioners for

In an unprecedented move,
Monroe County Administrator
Tom Willi has appointed the
accounting firm of Bishop and
Rosasco to finalize his proposed
$373 million budget for 2007-08.
Wednesday, Willi suspended
Budget Director Sal Zappulla for
alleged empl- 'ee misconduct.
Peter Rosa,co. \\ho also

cirn of NlM.arhon and % hose firm

"The letter of agreement spec-
ifice a $24.110i cap. but we won't
Co an. '.here near that. We only
need them to get through the
budget hearings.'"
\\dlll v a untiillin2 to talk
about Zappulla's suspension. But
CounIt Engineer Da\ id Koppel
%x weighed in v. ih his o% n thoughts
in an e-mail to \illi.


"It's about tine!" Koppel
wrote. "Although those on the
outside might be surprised by
your action, those familiar with
the problems Sal has created real-
ize this action is long overdue."
Zappulla couldn't be reached
for comment. But in a taped
voice-mail message to a fellow
county staffer Willi wouldn't
say to who Zappulla said he's
been under a lot of stress.
"I'm very, very tense today
and I'm wishing death," he said.
"I've had a lot of thoughts like
that and I don't know what to do
with the tension. So I think I'm
going to have to take a two-hour
lunch because I'm not really feel-
ing that good and I might have to
go home and lie down for a little
while. I'm having a terrible, terri-
ble pain. And I don't know what
could be causing this pain but
maybe it's the stress and the
aggravation."
According to County Attorney
Suzanne Hutton, Zappulla will be
allowed a pre-determination


hearing "to ferret out the perti-
nent facts" before possible firing.
If he is fired after the hearing,
he has a right to bring his case
before the county's Career
Service Board comprising people
outside the county employ.
Zappulla considered resigning
in June, saying he was frustrated
when he didn't receive a request-
ed raise in his $92,000 annual
salary. At the time, Willi cited
Zappulla's "interpersonal skills"
as the reason for withholding a
salary increase.
County Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy is unhappy with the
move.
"The timing could not be
worse," she said. "I spent an hour
with him [Wednesday] having the
current budget explained to me.
[Roscaso's] services would hard-
ly be needed if Sal were allowed
to do his job. I feel there is more
to it."
Mayor Mario Di Gennaro said,
"I have full confidence in our
county administrator. He does not
take these things lightly."

Ioebtrin our past


By DAN GALLAGHER


In 1971 the Marathon
Volunteer Fire Department
began raising money to replace
the firehouse built on 33rd
Street in the early 1950s. Here,
Chief Edmund Knudson
(otherwise known as "Cuhef
Red Socks". works on a sign
seeking support and funds from
the community for the new
station, at the Marathon airport.
The goal. and presumably the
cost of the building, was
$50.000. This firehouse. badly
dariaged by Hurricane Wilma,
is now being replaced bh a
larger structure.

IDOL / From I

the staggeringly popular singing
show.
"I kind of wanted more out of
it," she said later. "Maybe a
career."
So did about 8,000 other
singers who endured a long wait
in line early Monday at the
American Airlines Arena to
receive their auditioners' wrist-
bands.
All returned early
Wednesday, where they waited
again from before dawn to noon
to enter the arena. Bishop,
among the first few hundred to
register Monday, was among
early auditioners.
"There were 13,000 [singers
and guests] in there," she said.
"When we got in, [producers]
told us they were only taking
500 people" from Miami for the
next round of auditions.
"Of those 500, they said 100
would be good singers, and 400
would be horrible," Bishop said.
"That basically told me right
there I didn't have a chance."
Poor. performances, inten-
tional or not, make for entertain-
ing viewing in the first
"American Idol" episodes of the
. season. ..
* Bishop kpew she- was too
god 'to mke .that; unfortunate


lot. After performing at numer-
ous local events including the
Miss Coral Shores Pageant and
Florida Keys Idol, "everybody
was telling me I should audi-
tion," she said.
Even for those who pass the
first round, actually seeing
Simon Cowell and the other tel-
evision judges still lies several
steps away.
Curtains partitioned the arena
floor into a dozen audition
booths staffed by screeners.
Four singers at a time entered a
booth, where they stood in line
until given their 30 seconds to
make an impression.
"There was no music, and
you could hear the people [in
other booths] singing around
you," Bishop said. "Some of
them were pretty loud."
"People were dressed crazy,"
she laughed. "One guy was in a
purple pimp's outfit. And he got
through. The pimp got through
and I didn't."
Hours later, Bishop said she
did not regret missing two days
of school to go through the ardu-
ous audition process. She was
"disappointed" at missing her
varsity volleyball team's first
match, however.
"I knew a lot of people here
at school were rooting for me,"
Bishop, .sai., j"That makes me
feel good."

Bridge cost now


exceeds $7 million


DOT official
even suggests
scuffling it
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

In a last-ditch effort to con-
vince his fellow council mem-
bers not to move forward with
the proposed $5 million repair
of the Boot Key Bridge,
Marathon City Councilman Don
Vasil has invited a Florida
Department of Transportation
representative to speak at
Tuesday's regularly scheduled
meeting.
Vasil has brought the bridge
repair up for discussion before,
most recently at a budget work-
shop Aug. 16.
But fellow council members
have said they are in favor of
moving forward with the plan to
fund a large part of the repair by
creating a special taxing district
for the island's parcel owners.
The balance of the cost would
be paid by the city.
"My bottom line is the public
has come out real strong [to
him] and we're supposed to be
representing their interest,"
Vasil said. "Since my discus-
sions with the DOT, that gives a
stronger case for not moving
forward."
Frank Guyamier, DOT'S
District 6 structures and facili-
ties engineer, said he will be at
the meeting to answer any tech-
nical questions the council may
have before making a final deci-
sion to do the repairs.
Guyamier said he does not
know who is impacted by the
bridge, but wants the council to
be aware "they are looking at a
substantial amount of money to
fix the bridge."
"By the time you put a proj-
ect together, you don't know
what the construction costs will
be," he said.
Both Guyamier and project
engineer Luis Amigo agreed that
if construction on the draw-
bridge were to begin 18 months
from now, it would cost $7.5
million. That includes repairs to
the concrete and steel, painting
it and replacing machinery and
electrical systems.


Guyamier said he would r
rather the council have all avail-
able information now rather
than have the city back out after
DOT invests time and money
into the project.
"I don't want to be in the
middle of the design process and
have the city of Marathon say,
'We don't want to do anything
anymore.'"
Deputy City Manager C.J.
Geotis said he is against spend-
ing in excess of $7 million to
repair the bridge and that the
city would be better served to
explore other alternatives.
"We're looking at, conserva-
tively, between $6 [million] and
$7 million to fix [the bridge],
not counting operation mainte-
nance, manpower, bridge ten-
ders, emergency repairs and
standard maintenance," Geotis
said. "Right now the bridge
operation budget is almost
$100,000."
Guyamier said he told Vasil
that one option, other than
demolishing the bridge com-
pletely, would be to remove the
span at a cost of approximately
$800,000. He even suggested it
could be sunk as an artificial
reef.
City Attorney Jimmy
Morales said should the city
choose to remove the span, the
decision would be legally defen-
sible.
"It's not a slam dunk, but
there are strong arguments to be
made that there are options other
than spending $5 million on the
bridge," Morales said.
"The real basic thing is who's
going to pay for the bridge -
people getting value from it or
all the taxpayers?" Geotis said.

Keys Opinion


Local government

can't fall much further

Back in February, a daylong special Monroe County
Commission meeting addressed whether County Administrator
Tom Willi should get the boot.
Among reasons cited by commissioners George Neugent and
Sylvia Murphy for wanting Willi fired after a little more than
two years on the job were revelations from County Clerk Danny
Kolhage that not all was right with the budget.
Out of that meeting Willi survived a 3-2 vote came
promises the administrator and commissioners would try to get-
along better and keep each other apprised of the status of coun-
ty issues before problems reach critical mass.
No one expected them to sing "Kumbaya" and have a group
hug each month, but they did basically echoRodney King:
"Can't we all just get along?" Turns out, no, they still can't.
And we, the residents, are worse for it.
Wednesday, with one minute left before the close of the busi-
ness day, Willi emailed commissioners and department heads.
The message was a bombshell: Budget Director Sal Zappulla
"has been suspended" for unnamed "employee misconduct."
What looks to be the first step in a move to fire Zappulla
comes just as the county is trying to bring its 2007-08 budget
down before public hearings start Sept. 12. That sounds crazy to
Murphy, Neugent and other Willi critics and there are many.
On the other side, some inside county government hail the
move, saying Zappulla has been less than professional with his
co-workers.
Meanwhile, Willi recently came under fire when he used his
executive authority to dismantle the county's three-person
Marine Resources Department.
To respond to critics who contend that a county surrounded by
water desperately needs such a department, Willi scheduled a
Sept. 7 meeting in Marathon "regarding marine activities in
Monroe County." Invited were the commissioners and officials
from the municipalities and state and local agencies who have a
dog in that hunt.
Willi then cancelled the meeting this week, apparently because
it had come as a surprise to County Attorney Suzanne Hutton -
who was left off the notification list.
She fired off her own e-mail to Willi aide Connie Cyr: "So you
want commissioners there but not an attorney? Don't you think
they will feel uncomfortable being there? And you will preclude
them from participating in any discussion. Is this a press confer-
ence for Tom or a meeting? Since I wasn't noticed on this, I am
trying to ascertain what is going on."
Her befuddlement is shared by many who watch Monroe
County government as it stumbles and lurches ever closer to the
abyss of complete dysfunction.
If county leaders are going to find a path back from the brink,
they better start soon. It's growing dark.

Building permits should be issued


EDITOR:
I attended the County Commission meeting
Aug. 15 in Key Largo for the purpose of
approval of a road name changed for the
Children's Memorial Tree Garden in Key Largo.
I was granted it and thank the commissioners for
their continuing support of our program.
However, at the same meeting, on the agenda
was an appeal to the commission of the Building
Department's decision not to issue permits for
four lots in a developed subdivision.
This person had spent four years meeting all
the requirements for building permits under the
rate-of-growth ordinance and the final require-
ment was a biology report. Disclosed at that
meeting was a biology report from April saying
the permit could be issued.
However a secondary biology report was
issued in early May denying approval of the per-
mit and an agenda item was heard and passed by
the commission that month supporting this sec-
ond decision; However, the applicant for the per-
mits was never copied on this second report.
Then comes July. Yet a third report is issued
on these same lots that changed the designation
from buildable to non-buildable.
At the commission's August meeting, because
of confusion over whether these three reports
were drafts or final reports, the May decision was


vacated and the issue revisited.
Since the Building Department officials had
convoluted the status of these reports, the com-
mission has tabled the decision until its
September meeting.
I believe the commission has been led down
the garden path by its own Building Department
for whatever reason. However, it still bears the
responsibility for its actions.
This builder/applicant is not a large corporate
contractor looking to pave over the Keys, but a
one-man company, Robert Holeman
Construction, a young man who, in his teens, I
took in as a foster child. He later served in the
Marine Corps in Vietnam, married and raised a
son who is a boat captain and fishing guide in
Key Largo today. I can attest to the fact that
whatever Bob has today, he has gotten the old-
fashioned way. He earned it.
He previously lost lots in Gulfstream Shores
because of the same process. I think it is time for
the County Commission to get off its padded
chairs and instruct its Building Department to
issue these permits and not wait for another hear-
ing and possible lawsuits, not withstanding the
cost of delays and legal fees to Robert Holeman.

Kids receive community support


EDITOR:
Grace Jones Daycare would like to take this
opportunity to thank the Rotary Club of
Marathon for its tireless efforts helping us to get
our new center organized. These members helped
us assemble furniture and toys and anything else
that needed to be done, which carried into the
night on several occasions.
With all our furniture and toys coming in only
a day apart, we are very thankful these wonderful
members were able to help. Because of them, our
mounds of boxes diminished quickly and steadily,
only to leave a beautiful picture of what is in store


Police aren't overbearing
EDITOR:
We read the Aug. 15 letter from the gentleman
in Longwood regarding the Key Colony Beach
police with great interest. My thirtysomething
son also received a ticket from that department
after being warned about them.
He was speeding and didn't have his seat belt
on and they had the gall to ticket him. Imagine.
In our experience, the Key Colony Beach
Police Department does enforce the city laws fair-
ly and with great courtesy. We will permanently
move to Key Colony Beach one day. We were
made aware of the city laws on our first visit
there, as they are clearly posted in all rental units.
The Key Colony Beach Police Department is
a true positive for residents as well as visitors
and we wish to publicly express our appreciation
:for then. J i .. i ;
Si ' Jim and Carol Teague
Pentwater, Mich.


for our children who will be attending our center.
Grace Jones Daycare would also like to thank
the Marathon Jaycees, Paula Nardone, Morgan
Hill and Fred Roth for supplying manpower and
two trucks in the gargantuan effort of moving us
from the First Baptist Church in. Marathon to our
new center.
Without this help from our community, we
would not have had the resources to expedite the
move so smoothly. While we are still tying up our
loose ends from our opening, we are nearing our
goal and continuing our mission of providing
affordable childcare while nourishing the minds and
spirits of our children that live in our community.
Thank you again for the continued support.

This is what's left of the building housing Dana's Air'
Conditioning in Marathon following a November 2005 fire.

Puto goes above and beyond


EDITOR:
I would like to take this
opportunity to put in my 2 cents'
worth regarding Marathon City"
Manager Mike Puto.
After Hurricane Wilma, I
received a phone call from the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
at 3:15 in the morning that
smoke was pouring out of our
business' building.
I was there by 3:30 a.m.; so
were Mike Puto and the fire
department. The building burned
to the ground. By 4 in the after-
noon, I was still there, and Mike
Puto was there with me.
Mike asked me, "What can I
do?" I replied, "Mike I have 15
employees. When you count all


the dependents (wives and chil-
dren), there are 25 people that
count on a check from Dana's
Air Conditioning every Friday. I
need our business phone to ring
at our house by 8 a.m. tomor-
row morning."
The following day, the phone
did ring 'at our house. Everyone
received a full paycheck that
Friday. We worked out of our
house until.we could find a suit-
able space.
In this day and age of inac-
cessible and unresponsive gov-
ernment, Mike Puto represents
what local government ought to
be. Mike cares.

Immunizations a group effort


EDITOR:
Leadership Monroe County
offers a rare opportunity for res-
idents of Monroe to meet over
the course of seven months and
discuss issues that are unique to
the Florida Keys. During the
past 15 years, this leadership
forum has brought many indi-
viduals together who otherwise
may never have met.
Class 15 of Leadership
Monroe participated in these
forums from October 2006 to
April 2007. One of the expecta-
tions for each class is a commu-
nity service project. Class 15
discussed many projects that
could have an immediate effect
on the entire Keys. The class
chose child immunization as its
project.
Michael Cunningham (Class
10) of the Area Health
Education Center was contacted
as a resource to help the class
organize the effort. Through
Michael, the class was able to
sponsor five clinics from Key


West to Marathon to Key Largo
in July and August. Michael
also included the Monroe
County Health Department in
the partnership.
As a result, 150 children
were immunized with more than
450 shots. The effort appears to
have been a success.
Class 15 would like to pub-
licly thank everyone who partic-
ipated either actively or behind
the scenes to make this project
come to life to help meet the
immunization needs of the chil-
dren in our community.
They are Cherie Hills, Joyce
Wagner, Chris Clark, Ruth Roe,
Lori Denny, Katie Lyons, Arlene
Mathewson, Maria Lugo, Janet
Lopez, Christela Brevil, Yvette
Woods, Stephanie Walters and
Judy Greene; and the newspa-
pers for publicizing the clinics.
Without their time and effort,
the project would not have
occurred.

That whine you hear fat


skeeter budget taking off


Sometimes I think the public gets cheated
because it doesn't often attend government
workshops and budget hearings to see with
its own eyes what happens.
I definitely felt that way this week after sit-
ting in on the Florida Keys Mosquito Control
District board's initial budget workshop.
The entertainment value just can't be beat.
Of course, when the five-member board is
presented with a tentative budget that could
raise enough taxes to increase district spend-
ing by 41 percent, you know you've hit a
gold mine.
Sadly, there are very few members of the
public who've discovered this particular
venue and, sadder still, the district doesn't
even schedule one of its three budget meet-
ings in Key West.
So I'll try to capture some of
the flavor from this first session,
held Monday in Key Colony
Beach, and cordially invite you to
attend the second of the Mosquito
Control District's three budget
hearings, at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 10 at
the district's Key Largo building,
mile marker 100.3. The third is
5:30 p.m. Sept. 17 at-Key Colony
Beach City Hall.
As background, you need to
know the Mosquito Control
District gets high marks for keep-
ing skeeters in check. You don't Wayne 1
need to scratch too far beneath the Keynoter
surface to find an old-timer who
remembers when smudge pots
outside front doors were a key survival
requirement to live in the Keys.
But in more recent times, attention has
focused on how much the district spends,
including a bunker-like building the district is
completing at Florida Keys Marathon Airport.
Ironically, a lot more attention is now being
paid to how much the district raises in taxes
that it doesn't spend, rolling over excess as a
contingency fund for the following year.
Based on the proposed 2007-08 budget, the
district hopes to sock away another $2.7 mil-
lion in reserves on top of the estimated $3
million it'll have left unspent from this year.
Left unchanged, that would be a reserve of
more than 60 percent.
If there were any doubters, district Director
Ed Fussell quickly set them straight, arguing
that any cuts in the budget would lead to chaos
and a direct threat to the Keys' tourism industry.
Pressed by Key West Chamber of
Commerce Executive Vice President Virginia
Panico to justify more than $7 million cash
reserves on an operating budget of $9 mil-
lion, Fussell pulled out the threat of "an out-
break of West Nile and encephalitis."
Fussell cited 40 cases of West Nile report-
ed in Florida last year, half of those in
Miami-Dade County, and said: "We didn't
have one. case [of West Nile in the Keys], We


know how to control it."
He lambasted calls for reducing reserves as
"not prudent," adding the district takes its
mission seriously to "protect the health and
comfort of residents and tourists."
Then he pulled out his trump card just in
case anyone missed his point, noting that
whenever a case of West Nile is reported,
"We get the calls: 'Is it safe to come to the
Keys?'"
Wow, that was a hard act to follow.
But Commissioner Bill Shaw kept pressing
forward on his laundry list of expenses he
asked to see trimmed before the Sept. 10
meeting.
He included a $30,000 salary (plus $15,000
in benefits) for a new hire to serve as recep-
tionist in the district's new Marathon build-
ing. He offered a simple and
cheaper alternative:
"We've never needed a recep-
tionist before in Marathon," Shaw
said. "I'd say hang a sign on the
door with 'call this number' if
someone needs to get in....."
Questioning the need to spend
$30,000 on a tree chipper, Shaw
.. suggested the equipment could be
rented for $150 a day and save the
f district buckets of money in pur-
chasing, maintaining and servic-
ing a $30,000 chipper.
larkham He weighed in on $80,000 for
Publisher on-board meteorological devices
and $22,500 for "weather stations
and associated hardware." He said
piloting spray planes when he worked for
Mosquito Control, he'd look out the window
and see which way the wind was blowing
before letting loose.
Shaw also spotted what he considered an
excessive request to spend $75,000 on a new
security system for the Marathon building.
He reminded fellow board members the
Marathon facility already has a security sys-
tem with fire and smoke detectors, even a
motion detector.
He also was skeptical, noting he also used
to work for a burglar-alarm company:
"Seventy five thousand dollars is a BIG bur-
glar alarm."
He had a better idea.
"I say we buy a big ugly dog for $212,
maybe," Shaw offered, adding that's a deter-
rent costing a lot less money.
There was more fun and games, but no
action taken because this was a workshop,
and he's only one of five commissioners who
ultimately vote on a final spending plan.
Suffice it to say, you just had to be there.
And maybe if enough of you do show up at
the next two hearings, other commissioners
will get the message that cutting unnecessary
expenses is also a public duty, especially
when there are so many opportunities pre-
sented by years of rollover surpluses.

More cuts expected


TAXES / From 1

Monroe County Mayor Mario
Di Gennaro said. "I know staff is
working hard to bring it down."
Marathon Mayor Chris Bull
said that even though his council
was able to approve a proposed
tax rate 5 percent below roll-
back, he expects it to come
down further. Rollback is the tax
rate that would raise the same
revenue next fiscal year as this
year.
"We're hoping to come in at
10 percent below rollback, and
we're very pleased with that,"
Bull said. "We're confident
we're still able to provide the
community services at the level
we do with being able to provide
lower taxes."
County Property Appraiser
Ervin Higgs said he sees many
concerned citizens each year
when the notices arrive in the
mail.
"This is just to give people an
idea at what they're looking at,"
Higgs said.
Higgs said all the local taxing
bodies the county, School
District, municipalities and mos-
quito control tend to propose
a tax rate higher than what is
finally adopted.


According to law, each entity
must meet a July deadline for
adopting a proposed rate for the
fiscal year that starts Oct. 1.
Once that is adopted, it can only
be lowered.
"The county and cities
always have a tendency to give
me a proposed millage rate on
the high side," said Higgs, who
has been at the job more than 30
years.
This year was especially
tough because a new law requir-
ing tax-rate rollbacks wasn't
approved by the Legislature
until June. Most governing bod-
ies begin the budget process
some time in March, but the late
session left them scrambling at
the last minute to come up with
proposed budgets.
The TRIM notices make it
clear they are not tax bills. They
also give the time and location
for public hearings where tax-
payers can go and comment if
they would like to see the rates
lowered (see the schedule,
Page 9).
Overall Keys property val-
ues, according to Higgs' office,
rose 10 percent last year, coming
in at $28.7 billion, up from an
estimate of $26.1 billion during
the 2006 assessment.

Proposed tax bites
Truth in Millage Notices, which went out to Keys property owners this week, give residents
an idea of what their tax bills will look like for the coming year.
The Keys are divided into districts, and the rates include taxes assessed by the county,
cities (where applicable), School District, South Florida Water Management District and
Mosquito Control District, and for Everglades restoration.
The millage represents the amount of taxes paid per $1,000 of assessed value. So a mill-
age of 9.17 would equal a tax bill of $917 per $100,000 of property value.
Overall proposed taxes are over rollback, the term given to a taxing rate that would raise
the same amount of money next year as the current year.

Mandate not being met


Governments
still have time
to lower taxes
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


The Florida Legislature sent
out a solid message in June, pass-
ing a tax-reform bill during its
special session aimed at saving
property owners statewide some
$16 billion in the coming year.
The reform mandates local gov-
ernments to pass budgets for 2007-
08 at anywhere from 3 percent to 7
Percent lower than they approved
for the current budgJei year. *
" But so'fa, "rm's 'local gbiem-


ments and entities such as the
Mosquito Control District have
not cut taxes like they should.
State Rep. Ron Saunders is not
worried.
"When they do this initially,
come in with a higher rate, it can
only go down," Saunders said.
"We're just at a stage in the
process where they had to set a
cap on the tax rates."
Th tax-reform bill gave local
governments an out: If they are
unable to roll back taxes, their
elected boards, by a super-major-
ity vote, can override the state.
So if, for example, Monroe
County is unable to whittle its
budget to 5 percent less the ad


valorem tax collection than it's
collecting in 2006-07, the County
Commission could ignore the
mandate with a 4-1 vote. There
would be no state penalty.
However, budget staffers have
warned that if they do override
with less than a super-majority,
Monroe County would be penal-
ized, losing some $8 million in
shared sales tax.
"I've spoken to most of the
municipalities and entities,"
Saunders said, "and for the most
part they are confident they can
bring [their budgets] down. I'm
assuming they will continue to
come down."
Final tax rates will not actual-
ly be set until completion of pub-
lic hearings in September.

Schools won't close


as quickly for storms


Acevedo says
call will wait for
'cane warning
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.com

Officials can wait longer
than they used to to close
schools when tropical systems
are coming, the Monroe
County schools superintendent
said in describing this year's
hurricane policy.
Last year, the School
District closed schools early
when storm threats arose, and
the storms that hit the Keys
were weaker than expected,
Superintendent Randy
Acevedo said. He warned that
more closings for hurricane
days this year could hurt stu-
dent achievement.
Acevedo said lost school
days hurt first-semester sub-
ject areas the most and can
bring down Florida
Comprehensive Achievement
Test scores.
So this year, schools and
county Emergency Management
officials have discussed keeping
schools open until the Keys are
under a hurricane warning -
but they could act earlier if a
storm is very strong or moving
very fast, Acevedo said.
Emergency Management offi-
cials will still make the final
decision on school closings.


Acevedo told The Reporter
the new policy will help pre-
vent unnecessary hurricane
days.
The district put three make-
up days on this year's school
calendar. If the season is as
active as predicted, that might
not be enough, Acevedo said.
In 2006 the Keys took just a
mild blow from Tropical Storm
Ernesto in late August. Still,
schools closed for three days
because of storm forecasts.
During the more active
2005 hurricane season,
Acevedo said, students missed
more than 10 days of school to
storms. After a state pardon on
hurricane makeup days, stu-
dents made up just four days.
"It would be my preference,
unless a storm is moving quick-
ly, to wait until it's a [hurri-
cane] warning" before closing
schools, Acevedo said. "A lot
of time schools are closed for
shelters that sit empty," he said,
adding, "Of course, each situa-
tion is different."
Acevedo said that in the
past, local officials decided to
close schools when a tropical
storm was about 36 hours
away. That often caused
unnecessary closings, Acevedo
said.
The school year started
Aug. 20. The six-month hurri-
cane season continues to
Nov. 30.

$1.25M theft alleged


Keys teachers'
credit union
files complaint
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

A former manager at the
Monroe County Teachers
Federal Credit Union is accused
of embezzling $1.25 million
from. the financial institution
since 2004.
Patricia Sue Long told the
Keynoter Friday she can't com-
ment on the complaint.
On Aug. 8, credit-union staff
filed a civil complaint against
Long alleging that in September
2004, she began using the com-
pany's credit cards to make


STO C IIA
"unauthorized purchases for her
personal use or benefit" or for
the benefit of "an unknown third
party," according to Monroe
County Circuit Court docu-
ments.
The complaint alleges Long
forged business documents and
lied to the credit union's board
of directors to cover up the
activity.
The credit union, with assets
of $6 million, has 966 members.
It was established in 1950 and
has just three full-time employ-
ees and one part-timer. -
After the board discovered
the money missing in April, it
suspended, then fired, Long.
Jerry Buldoc has replaced her.
Though the allegations are


likely to draw an investigation,
officials with the Monroe
County State Attorney's Office
say they can neither confirm nor
deny such an investigation.
The civil suit demands a lien
against Long's Stock Island
home and any other property in
the amount of $1.25 million,
plus an estimated $100,000 in
attorney fees and other expenses.
On June 22, attorneys for the
credit union sent a letter
demanding $3.75 million in
damages. According to attorney
Jerry Sanders, who wrote the let-
ter, Florida statute requires such
a demand before a civil action
can be pursued.
Sanders is part of the Veris
and Bowling legal group, which
also represents the Monroe
County School Board.


Trash rules tighten in village


Too much stuff
being put out
for collection
Reporter Staff

Starting in October,
Islamorada residents will have to
curb how much garbage they
throw away.
There is now no limit to how
much garbage residents can put
out to be collected every week,
but beginning Oct. 1, they will
be limited to six 32-gallon cans
or six bundles, or a combination
of both, said Bruce Williams,
general manger of Onyx Waste


Services, the village's solid-
waste disposal company. Each
bundle must not exceed 4 feet in
height and 50 pounds, he said.
Williams said the excessive
amount of trash Onyx was col-
lecting in Islamorada has placed
the company almost $200,000
behind in revenue since 2003.
He's seeking some reimburse-
ment from the village govern-
ment but in the meantime, the
Village Council approved his


request to restrict how much
people can put out for his com-
pany to collect.
Williams said residents will
be able to go over the new limit,
but it will cost them $2.25 per
can or bundle.
"We are developing a way for
them to pay for extra trash,: but
we haven't figured out a way to
collect the money yet," Williams
said.
Those who have questions
about the new policy can 'call
Williams at 853-3433.

Housing fee-waiver possible


Sea Grape
complex on
city agenda
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon City Council is
scheduled to meet in regular ses-
sion at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the
Marathon Government Center.
Agenda items include:
A discussion on whether to
waive city impact and building-
permit fees for the Sea Grape
affordable housing project at
mile marker 50.5.
That's a Monroe County proj-
ect for an initial 56 affordable
units under income guidelines.
The County Commission voted
Aug. 15 to buy the property from'
Sea Grape Ltd., a Carlisle Group
company, and lease it back to
Carlisle under a 99-year lease.


Rents would be from $789 to
$912 monthly.
Setting dates for a Coco
Plum zoning workshop, most
likely following the end of budg-
et season.
An ordinance to adopt a
system by which the city will
codify its ordinances. Residents
will be able to access a link at
www.municode.com, making
it easier to access city code
information.
A resolution approving the
latest rankings of non-residential
building permit allocations.
A resolution approving
market-rate and affordable per-
mit allocations. Three times
annually the city may award up
to eight market-rate allocations
and two affordable-housing allo-
cations.
City Planner Jacqulyn
Walters said as many as nine


market-rate allocations could be
awarded, as someone awarded
one from the last cycle wanted to
amend their application and the
allocation carried over.
Walters also said there is only
one applicant listed for the two
possible affordable allocations.
The extra allocation will carry
over to the next cycle.
A resolution electing to use
the uniform method of collecting
non-ad valorem special assess-
ments levied in the city. The res-
olution has to deal with collect-
ing taxes for the renovation of
the Boot Key Bridge. The city
previously advertised a notice of
intent for the tax.
A resolution authorizing a
change order in the contract with
Globetec Construction for the

A resolution approving an
amended and restated memoran-
dum of agreement with the city
and the state departments of
Environmental Protection and
Community Affairs concerning
Curry Hammock State Park.
The agreement will be
amended to state that RVs will
be able to visit the park year-
round. When originally drafted,
the agreement had stated the
park would be closed to RV vis-
itors during hurricane months.
Local RV parks, many of which

FKAA: We cost less


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Sewer treatment in the Lower
Keys is a murky issue, but the
Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority
hopes to make things crystal clear.
Big Coppitt, Rockland and
Geiger keys are next in line for
sewer installation, and Bill
Smith, who owns the private KW
Resort Utilities, says his compa-
ny can do it for less than the pub-
lic utility.
Not quite, Aqueduct Authority
Jim Reynolds wrote in an Aug.
22 letter to County Administrator
Tom Willi.
Reynolds provided what he
calls an "apples-to-apples" com-
parison of the total expense of
building a new sewer plant on
Rockland Key to piping effluent
from the three islands to KW
Resort Utilities' existing Stock
Island plant.
Last month, the company sent
.a message to the County
Commission saying it could save
taxpayers up to $5.5 million in
start-up expenses as well as offer


lower monthly rates for users.
But according to Reynolds'
analysis, it would cost an overall
$11 million to go with KW
Resort Utilities and $7.8 million
to construct a new plant on
Rockland Key.
The difference, according to
the letter, is an additional $8.7
million for transmission lines that
the Aqueduct Authority says KW
Resort Utilities left out of its
$2.38 million estimate.
Bids were opened Aug. 8 to
install a new sewer plant on
Rockland. Douglas N. Higgins
Inc., which had already done pre-
vious work for the Aqueduct
Authority, came in with the low
bid of $10.7 million.
"To compare this number with
the proposal from KW Resort
Utilities, "several adjustments
must be made to make a more
direct comparison," Reynolds
wrote.
Pumping stations, a pipeline
extending over the Boca Chica
Bridge and along U.S. 1, and a


transmission system for
reclaimed water would add more
$8.7 million to the figure pro-
posed by Smith, Reynolds said.
Bill Barry, spokesman for the
private utility, said the analysis is
"a gross manipulation of num-
bers."
He said connecting to the
existing plant would hold down
sewer costs, not only for the resi-
dents of Big Coppitt, but for
existing users on Stock Island
who are already connected to the
KW Resort Utilities plant.
Willi said the County Com-
mission has already given clear
direction to move forward on the
project under the auspices of the
Aqueduct Authority and build a
new plant on Rockland Key.
"This analysis provides some
good solid numbers," Willi said,
"including some grant tie-ins for
funding that can't be ignored. By
waiting for the actual bids to
come in, the FKAA was able to
give an accurate insight of the
cost of tying into the [Stock
Island] plant. That can't be
ignored either."


Ros-Lehtinen wants $29M for Keys


By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbumie@keysreporter.com


U.S. Rep Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen is asking federal offi-
cials to earmark a portion of the
funding needed to meet a 2010
state deadline for building sewer
systems throughout the Keys.
Ros-Lehtinen addressed an
Aug. 13 letter to the acting direc-
tor of Congress's Office of
Management and Budget,
Stephen McMillin, asking
Congress to appropriate $29 mil-
lion for the Keys in its 2009
budget year.
In the letter, Ros-Lehtinen
stressed the importance of main-
taining healthy nearshore waters
in the Keys.
"The Florida Keys are home
to a natural marine sanctuary,"
the letter says, "an area includ-
ing the largest coral reef system
in the continental United States.
This area is a national treasure,
and as such ensuring the cleanli-
ness of the water surrounding
these important ecosystems
should be a national concern."
While Keys sewer officials
would welcome $29 million,.
many re hesitant to put faith in


federal funding after waiting six
years to see even a fraction of
$100 million authorized by
Congress in 2001.
Congress later appropriated
$7.5 million of the authorized
funds, and although Key Largo,
Key Colony Beach and Key
West are slated to get a portion
of those funds in the near future,
Keys officials have yet to see
any money.
Ros-Lehtinen's letter asks for
funding in the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers' 2009 fiscal year
budget.
The Corps was put in charge
of distributing the $7.5 million
years ago. Although it spent $2
million on paperwork and
administrative expenses, none of
the funding has reached Keys
agencies.
Shelley Trulock, the Corps'
project manager for the Florida
Keys Water Quality Improve-
ment Project, had said the
holdup was caused by "some
delays in coordinating with the
municipalities and their legal
staff on the project cooperation
agreementss" '


According to Trulock and
Key Largo Wastewater
Treatment District Com-
missioner Susan Hammaker,
cooperation between the Corps
and Keys officials recently
improved, and both sides are
optimistic about a more produc-
tive working relationship.
"We can truly say that Keys
stakeholders have made more
progress in the last seven months
than in the previous almost
seven years," Hammaker said.
If a fruitful relationship can
be maintained between the
Corps and Keys localities, and if
Congress OKs Ros-Lehtinen's
$29 million request, Keys offi-
cials could be a step closer to
raising the estimated $500 mil-
lion to $600 million needed to
sewer the rest of the Keys.
Despite skepticism from
many community members,
Hammaker remains confident
the 2010 deadline can be met.
"Some may think there is no
hope," Hammaker said, "but like
drops of water falling on stone,
the effort eventually reveals its
work. The future is for the opti-
mists and I am proud to be one."

Audit clears former city code officer


Investigation
finds money
not misspent
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


An eight-month audit of a
$20,000 fund used to investigate
illegal transient rentals has offi-
cially cleared former Key West
Chief Code Enforcement Officer
Jim Young of improprieties
alleged by then-City Manager
Julio Avael.
The findings by internal audi-
tor Kathryn Watts were presented
to the City Commission Tuesday.
"I knew all along that I never
did anything improper," Young
said. "All of the I's were'dotted
and Ts were crossed." He said the
audit was a "weak attempt to jus-
tify my termination."
Avael fired Young, who was
hired in November 2004, on Oct.
13. Since then, Young maintains
there have been various attempts
to soil his name on top of what he
calls his "unjust termination."


As a result of his firing, he's
suing the city citing a violation of
Florida's Whistleblower's Act
that protects against retaliatory
discharge.
Shortly after Young's firing,
City Commissioner Harry Bethel
asked Finance Director Roger
Wittenberg to complete a review
of all expenditures from the fund.
Wittenberg discovered every
expense accounted for.
Subsequently, Watts was asked to
conduct her audit.
"There was no indication of
waste, fraud, and/or abuse of tax-
payers' monies noted in regards
to the invoices reviewed and
reimbursements processed," the
audit reads. The findings also
indicate Avael "was not aware of
the purpose of the invoices."
Avael sent an e-mail to Mayor
Morgan McPherson Jan. 31 say-
ing there was a "problem" with
"heavy handed compliance offi-
cers...." He also wrote he was
giving McPherson a "heads up"
that $20,000 in expenses "were
paid to hotels and bed and break-


fast establishments via the phan-
tom company and credit carddur-
ing the investigations...." -
He also stated the "reason for
the [budgetary] request was not
explained."
"There was no evidence that
city monies were obtained
through use of a 'phantom' credit
card," the audit reads. In fact,
Watt wrote that Wittenberg "has
control of the one city-issued
card."
Young conducted undercover
investigations by using aliases
and instructing code officers to
stay in units being rented out to
uncover transient-rental code vio-
lations.
SYoung said he recently heard
from former Assistant City
Attorney Kevin Hoyes that he's
expected to testify Aug. 27 in a
code case the city has against
Property Management Inc.,
owned by Neil Hirsch.
City attorney Shawn Smith
fired Hoyes Aug. 13, saying in a
termination letter that Hoyes was
looking for another job and that
Smith had received complaints
about his "demeanor and work


product" from other departments.
Hoyes declined comment, cit--
ing a continuing ethical obliga-
tion to his former client, the city.
Before his stint with the city,
:Young was a detective at the
Broward Sheriff's Office. He
now works the Monroe County
Property Appraiser's Office.


The city must respond to the
wrongful-termination suit by
Aug. 27. Young and his attorney
Hugh Morgan are also waiting to
hear from Circuit Court Judge
Mark Jones on a pending public-
information request of e-mails
regarding Young's firing.

New proposal
slightly lowers
village rate
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The Key West City
Commission saw a balanced pro-
posed general-fund budget
Tuesday night, as a newly formu-
lated millage rate and four frozen
positions at the Police
Department gave the city a sliver
of breathing room in a tight budg-
et year.
On July 16, City Manager Jim
Scholl presented a budget that
had $250,061 more in expenses
than revenue.
The new proposed spending
plan is $38,487,345, not far from
this year's $38,455,387.
The new proposed millage,
after factoring in what will come
from tax-incremental financing,
is 2.035. The previous proposed
village was 2.004.
This fiscal year's millage is
2.3, meaning the owner of a
$500,000 house pays $1,150 in
property taxes. Under the new
proposed millage, that same
homeowner would pay $1,017.50
in 2007-08.
The changed budget would
mean $231,279, or 1.6 percent,
less in property-tax revenue for
the coming year.
Freezing the four open police
positions saves $279,000 in
salary for the general fund budg-

et. Those four positions bring the
total number of frozen positions
to 14, including two firefighters,
maintenance workers for the
Public Works Department, a city-
clerk records coordinator and
more.
"Seventy-one percent of the
budget is staff," Scholl said
responding to questions about
how to make more wiggle room.
"The only way to substantially
lower expenses is by cutting
staff."
City Commissioner Bill Verge
said "29 percent isn't much"
room to make cuts.
And cutting staff won't hap-
pen, Scholl told the Keynoter, as
he's been working hard with
Finance Director Roger
Wittenberg to formulate a budget
that won't only keep all city staff
on board, but give them raises as
well.
"Everyone will probably get a
raise," Scholl added, saying a
cost-of-living allowance should
help keep good city employees,
even with costly rents and mort-
gages.
Public hearings on the budget
are at 6 p.m. Sept. 13 and 30 at
Old City Hall on Greene Street.

19-year-old dies
in Lower Keys crash

A 19-year-old woman from
Orange City, southwest of
Daytona Beach, became the
Keys' 15th auto fatality of the
year when she died in a crash
Wednesday afternoon at mile
marker 38.
State troopers say Jenifer
Morefield was a passenger in a
1991 Nissan heading south when
the driver, Joshua Leiter, 18,
crossed the center line around
3:30 p.m. and sideswiped a
northbound Chevy driven by
Yvette Nagy of Miami.
Leiter's car then hit head-on a
2008 Dodge driven by Lindsey
Lenart of Pennsylvania.
Leiter, Nagy and Lenart were
treated at local hospitals. Charges
are pending further investigation.

marijuana were found. The drugs are worth an estimated $17,500.



Tattoo shops make mark


Two are given
the OK to open,
others possible.
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

No longer will henna tattoos
be the only available body art on
Duval Street in Key West. As of
Wednesday morning, any sober-
customer on the strip can get the
real thing.
Greg Eppy, owner of Paradise
Tattoo, said his "first customer
was a four-hour tattoo.
Everything all day the first day
was like that."
After lengthy negotiations
among city officials and the own-
ers of tattoo parlors Key West
Ink, 717 Duval, and Paradise,
627 Duval, the city settled pend-
ing lawsuits brought by both par-
lor owners by allowing them to
open. The owners claimed a ban
on parlors in the city proper vio-
lated First Amendment rights.
That ban was in effect since
1964 because the U.S. Navy
feared drunken sailors would get
tattoos and catch diseases such as
hepatitis from the needles.


Sanitation measures were mini-
mal compared to what they are
today; each needle is disposed
after it is used.
While the two shops have
already opened, the ordinance
allowing them still has to be
approved by the City Com-
mission and state Department of
Community Affairs.
One change made Tuesday in
the pending ordinance allowing
them mandates that future tattoo
establishments, with the excep-
tion of Key West Ink and
Paradise, can open only in the
commercial general district of
North Roosevelt Boulevard. That
amended ordinance will go
before the commission Sept. 5.
Key West Ink and Paradise
"were grandfathered' in [for Old
Town] because they were on
Duval before the ordinance
passed," said Commissioner Bill
Verge, who proposed the grandfa-
thering.
Commissioner Mark Rossi
said he couldn't support an ordi-
nance that restricts the shops to
one area of town. Commissioners
Harry Bethel and Jose Menendez
agreed, -and voted against the


ordinance because of it. Mayor
Morgan McPherson, Verge and
commissioners Dan Kolhage and
Clayton Lopez vote for it.
Under the pending law, par-
lors can't be closer than 500 feet
from schools, churches and pub-
lic buildings. Also, they must
undergo health inspections twice
a year rather than quarterly as
first proposed.

Higgs Beach
Also Tuesday McPherson's
resolution to purchase Higgs
Beach from Monroe County was
voted down due to its lack of
specificity.
Many community members
and officials have complained
about being accosted by aggres-
sive vagrants who camp out on
the property.
The property includes the
beach, a historic African ceme-
tery, bocci and tennis courts, and
a nearby dog park.
McPherson proposes obtain-
ing the beach and leasing it to
nonprofits such as the YMCA,
Boys and Girls Club and the
Police Athletic League to oversee
the land. The yearly cost to main-
,tain the property' would be
,$500,000.. i '

'Cuban Five' back in court


Convicted spies
include former

Keys resident -
Associated Press

The politically charged
case of five men including
one who lived on Big Pine
Key and worked at Naval Air
Station Key West convicted
of spying for communist Cuba
came before a federal appeals
court in Atlanta for the third
time Monday, with defense
attorneys alleging prosecutors
overemphasized Fidel Castro
and committed other miscon-
duct to win unjust convictions.
Defense attorneys seeking a
new trial claim the govern-
ment wrongly used "Castro's
evil" to push for convictions
on what they say are
overblown charges of conspir-
acy to commit espionage and
murder. Federal prosecutor
Caroline Heck Miller dis-
missed what she called a
defense a "parade of horrors"
and argued the trial was won
by hard evidence, not anti-
Castro sentiment.
"Red baiting. Communism.


.Your Honor, that was not the
record of this case," Miller
said. "It was a soberly tried
case."
The "Cuban Five" have
been lionized as heroes in
Cuba, while exile groups say
they were justly punished.
Castro's government sent
Antonio Guerrero (the former
Big Pine resident), Gerardo
Hernandez, Ramon Labanino,
Rene Gonzalez and Fernando
Gonzalez to South Florida to
gather information about anti-
communist exile groups and
send it back to the island using
encrypted software, high-fre-
quency radio transmissions
and coded electronic phone
messages.
The five were convicted of
being unregistered foreign
agents, and three were found
guilty of espionage conspiracy
for failed efforts to obtain mil-
itary secrets. Hernandez was
also convicted of murder con-
spiracy in the deaths of four
Miami-based pilots whose
small, private planes were
shot down in February 1996
by a Cuban MiG in interna-
tional waters off Cuba's north-


ern coast.
They. were sentenced to
terms ranging from 10 years to
life in December 2001, but the
dase has ping-ponged through
the court system the last six
years due to a round of
appeals.
In August 2005, a three-
judge panel of the llth U.S.
Circuit Court of Appeals in
Atlanta tossed the verdicts,
saying the five didn't receive a
fair trial because of anti-
Castro bias in Miami. The
convictions were reinstated
exactly a year later by the full
11th Circuit.
Defense attorney Richard
Klugh focused his arguments
on Guerrero, who was accused
of sending detailed reports on
NAS Key West. He said his
client could have used public
information not clandestine
espionage to piece together
the reports.
"An enterprising reporter
could have obtained the same
info that Antonio Guerrero
obtained on that base," Klugh
said. "He's doing a life sen-
tence for something that could
have. been published in the
Miami Herald."

the decision to close was made

"It's been a lean couple of

Tech-nify your resume


Businesses and
colleges push
tech experience
The situation: The job search
and college application markets
already use the Internet and
online applications and resumes
are the norm.
But now, job seekers and col-
lege applicants may have to do
more than fill out online appli-
cations and upload resumes as
Word documents.
From creating and uploading
online videos to submitting
PowerPoint decks,, some
employers and colleges are
requiring more technical expert-
ise as part of the application
process.
In a November-December
2006 www.careerbuilder.com
survey conducted by Harris
Interactive, 60 percent of some
2,200 hiring managers and
human-resource professionals
expressed interest in viewing
video resumes.
Music mogul P.Diddy is
looking for a new assistant, but
he's only accepting video


resumes via YouTube. About
700 people have applied so far.
Some of their video resumes can
be viewed at www.youtube
.com/lgroups_videos?name=
diddy assistant&page=34.
This fall, the University of
Chicago Business School will
require perspective students to
create four pages of
PowerPoint-like slides with
their applications. School
administrators say they added
the component because pro-
grams like PowerPoint are valu-
able tools for many businesses.
They also want applicants to be
able to express themselves with
more than just grades and test
scores.
The Geek Squad offers the
following tips on how to tech-
nify your resume:
Convert your resume to a
PDF When you submit your
resume in a Word document, it
is possible for people to alter
your information. If you convert
your resume to a PDF, it will
ensure that no one can change it.
If your file is a Word document,.
select "File" then "Print." Select


the "PDF" printer name and
resave your file.
Create a video resume on
sites such as www.hiremenow
.com and www.gocvone
.com. Career sites such as www
.careerbuilder.com, www
.jobster.com, www.college
grad.com and www.work
blast.com recently began
accepting video resumes on
their sites. If you need help
using the sites, call the Geek
Squad at (800) GEEKSQUAD.
Create your own Web site
that includes writing samples
and a resume, or create a blog
demonstrating your expertise..
Popular sites to create blogs are
www.blogger.com or www
.livejournal.com. You can
design a Web site with
Microsoft FrontPage or
Macromedia Dreamweaver.
Back up everything: You
don't want to spend weeks edit-
ing a video or designing a Web
site just to have it gone in an
instant with a computer crash.
Backup everything frequently
and in multiple places.

SHOWTIME / From 21

High School and performs his
torch-juggling act almost every
day during the summer, and on the
weekends during the school year,
He stands on three pieces of
wood, propped up by cups.
Performer Alex Kowalcyk
describes street performing, also
called busking, as the world's
"second-oldest profession."
Some gather spectators at
makeshift stages called pitches,
others place their bucket or guitar
case nearby as the play their
music or wear their costumes -
creating an ambience they hope
passersby will appreciate enough
to leave a tip.
This kind of busking is
referred to as a walk-by act, while
the performances at Mallory
Square, known as circle shows,
are typically a more lucrative
form of busking.
Many famous people and acts
got their start from busking:
Jimmy Buffet, Rod Stewart, Bob
Dylan, Joan Baez, Billy Joel, the
Blue Man Group and Cirque Du
Soleil. The art form is very popu-
lar in subway stations in London,
New York and elsewhere.
On the streets of Key West, a
city permit is required, but almost
anyone can perform at Mallory
Square through the Sunset
Cultural Preservation Society, a
nonprofit that promotes art and
culture in the area.
Through an agreement with
the city, the group allows 17 slots
to be filled by performers and 55
by vendors, pier manager Andy
Parsons said. Those vendors are
allowed to sell only the crafts, art


and jewelry they make them-
selves, a rule aimed 'at preserving
the cultural authenticity of the
area,
Who gets which space is deter-
mined by a pre-sunset lottery sys-
tem using four buckets, which
hopeful performers choose in an
order based on seniority.
Those who've been perform-
ing at the square the longest
choose first; those who've. just
started choose last. The buckets
are labeled (in order of most time
performing to least): "Regulars,"
'"Snowbirds," "Snowbirds in
Waiting" and "Newcomers."
According to Parsons, the
square can host up to 6,000 people
on a spring night, during tourist
season. He recalls coming to
Mallory as an 18-year-old kid and
watching Will Soto, a high-rope
walker, perform 22 years ago.
He's happy to come full circle and
"police" the hub of activity.
"It's like herding cats," he said.
"Keeping the drunks in line and
calling the cops.when necessary"
is a full time job.
Kowalcyk, 26, says he used to
work 70 hours a week as a sales
manager in a stuffy Philadelphia
office.
"People told me I was working
for the American dream," he
shouted out to his impressively
large crowd. "But what about my
dream?"
His dream: to travel the world
and hear raucous applause at each
new destination. He's busked in
New Orleans, Boston, New York
City and San Francisco. He lives
on a boat in the city mooring field.
He doesn't.want to wear a tie.
But that doesn't mean he does-
n't work hard even still. As he jug-


gles his fiery torches while bal-
anced on a unicycle what he
dubbed his $10 trick he has to
win over the crowd not unlike
winning over his potential buyers.
"You've got to be 100 percent
every day," he said. "It really is
still sales."
Rondini Alexander, 52, falls in
that same vein. He's been per-
forming for as long as he can
remember and says he doesn't
leave Key. West.
"If you're a schizophrenic,
give twice," he called out to his
dispersing crowd after escaping
from a straightjacket wrapped in
chains.
His show is high energy and
dramatic. As he appears to dislo-
cate his shoulder to slip out of the
jacket and chains, the crowd gasps
and cringes with vicarious pain.
Asked to reveal his secret, he
politely declined.
The Key West Police
Department says it doesn't have
many issues with performers at
the square, but there is an officer
on site to ensure onlookers stay
behind performers' roped-off
areas and don't get carried away.
On Halloween 2006, escape
artist Michael Patrick, 55, leaped
off the pier in a straight jacket and
never surfaced from Key West
Harbor.
At least to those watching.
After a very involved police
search including a rescue dive,
Patrick was found at a guesthouse
on Truman Avenue. He was
arrested for culpable negligence.
Estimates of the investigative
costs exceeded $25,000.
Patrick is no longer allowed
anywhere near Mallory Square.
But his situation is a rarity.

Scientists
'MacGyvering'
for Winter
Associated Press

Prosthetic specialist Kevin
Carroll travels the country tack-
ling the toughest human amputa-
tion cases, so it was only natural
that he was also drawn to Winter
- the only known dolphin to
survive the loss of her powerful
tail flukes.
"My heart went out to her, and
I was thinking I could probably
put a tail on her," said Carroll,
vice president of prosthetics at
Hanger Orthopedic Group.
Recreating one of the most
powerful swimming mechanisms
in nature turned out to be a lot
tougher than expected. But after
months of experimenting, Carroll
and a unique team of experts are
well on their way to, as one of
them puts it, "MacGyvering" a
tail for Winter.
Unlike the 1980s cult TV hero
"MacGyver," who worked his
way out of tight spots with every-
day items, much of what
Winter's team is creating is first-
of-its-kind stuff.
"We put together a team who
doesn't know what 'no' means,"
said Mike Walsh, Winter's lead
veterinarian and a program man-
aaer at the University of


Florida's aquatic animal health
program. "As long as you're
willing to try, you can make a big
difference."
Winter lives at the Clearwater
Marine Aquarium, a nonprofit
marine animal rescue center and
popular local attraction.
She was a frail, dehydrated 3-
month-old when she came to the
hospital in December 2005. A
fisherman found her tangled in
the buoy line of a crab trap in
Indian River Lagoon near Cape
Canaveral. The line cut off the
blood supply to her tail and it
slowly fell off like shreds of
paper as the aquarium team
worked to save her life.
Winter learned how to swim
without her tail, which is used for
propulsion amazing her han-
dlers with a unique combination
of moves that resemble an alliga-
tor's undulating swimming style
and a shark's side-to-side tail
swipes. Winter uses her flippers,
normally employed for steering
and braking, to get moving.
But her unique swimming
style is sure to lead to spinal
problems. She already some-
times bends her spine in an
unnatural curve.
Walsh said allowing Winter to
work out daily with a prosthetic
tail may keep her from deterio-
rating. It is unlikely she will wear
the tail full-time.

Broward toasts glass beaches


Material would
be used for
replenishment
Associated Press

Picture a beautiful beach gen-
tly lapped by aqua-colored water
- and sprinkled with glass?
Ouch!
Think again. It's actually sug-
ary soft with sparkling granules
that feel like, well, sand. And
that's the point.
Faced with the constant chal-
lenge of keeping sand on
Florida's beaches, Broward
County officials are exploring an
innovative option to-use pulver-
ized glass to control erosion.
The recycled glass would be
crushed into tiny grains and
mixed with regular sand to patch
erosion problems on the county's
beaches before they wash away.
It's only natural, officials say,


since glass is made from melted
sand.
"Basically, what we're doing
is taking the material and return-
ing it back to its natural state,"
said Phil Bresee, Broward's recy-
cling manager.
The mainland county would
become the first in the country to
use the process to dispose of
recycled glass, bolster sand
reserves and intentionally spread
it on beaches, Bresee said.
Sand is a commodity in South
Florida, where beach-related
business generates more than $1
billion a year for Broward alone.
It has traditionally been dredged
from the ocean a mile offshore
and piped onto beaches about
13 million tons of it since 1970 in
Broward. That's enough sand to
fill the entire Empire State
Building more than 12 times
over.
.But with the county's reef sys-


tem restricting future dredge
sites, available sand is becoming
scarce and pricey as construction
and fuel costs rise and dredge
operations are pushed farther off-
shore.
SIn 2005, a dredge operation
brought in about 2.6 million tons
of sand at a cost of $45 million.
By comparison, a 1991 dredge
operation brought in about 1.3
million tons of sand for $9 mil-
lion.
The recycled-glass market
also is lagging from low value,
Bresee said.
While the glass sand project
wouldn't solve the county's prob-
lem of limited sand supply, it
would create a reserve to plug
beach hot spots like pot holes
before they become critically
eroded, Bresee said.
A typical large dredge project
brings in about 2.6 million tons of
offshore sand. The county would
create just 15i600 tons of the
glass material each year.

Marathon
triumphs over
Canes, Conchs
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


A young Marathon High
School volleyball team took a first
step on a return to sport domi-
nance at the net Wednesday at the
annual Keys Classic preseason
tournament.
The Lady Dolphins, a relative-
ly young squad apart from a few
veteran standouts such as Alexis
Culver and Jessica Brier, defeated
both local rivals Coral Shores and
Key West High School in the
three-team round-robin.
"These were essentially prac-
tice games but obviously we still
wanted to win," Marathon coach
Kevin Freeman said. "We showed
that we can come back when we
get down. That's what I really
wanted to see."
The host Lady Hurricanes
opened the tournament with a 25-
13, 25-18 win over Key West.-
Cane veteran Alex Barron served


out the final three points of the
match, including an ace.
The Conchs rallied to stun
Marathon, 25-22, in the first game
of the second match. Jacquie
Garcia served four straight points
for the Key West win. Jessica
Bodman and Danielle Hills also
played well at the tournament for
the Lady Conchs.
But then Culver and Brier led a
charge that saw the Dolphins
cruise to a second-game win.
Marathon -pulled out a 15-12
tiebreaker to take the match.
"When Alexis is swinging hard
on the big hits, good things hap-
pen," Freeman said.
In the third and deciding
match, Coral Shores' A unit had
trouble serving and lost the open-
er.
"You're not going to beat
Marathon by just standing
around," Hurricane coach Andy
Thiery said. "At times, it looked
like everybody wanted to leave
early for dinner."
Thiery turned the second game
over to his younger B squad, and

Contributions finance trip


ISLAND / From 29

tant coaches took players to the
Caribbean island. The trip, which
-cost about $8,000, was financed
by sponsors and fundraisers, with
each girl contributing $300.
"It was the perfect way to mix
the new players with the old in
just nine days," said Paul, who
also coaches the club and the
high-school girls team. "Girls
need to feel the bond to each
other to truly play at a team
level."
The team left early on Aug. 2
from the Key West airport. One
player, cell phone to ear, was,
Paul wrote in the journal, "sob-
bing uncontrollably because she
feared her boyfriend would not
arrive in time for one more good-
bye." (He did.)
The first night was spent in a
house in Aguadilla. The next day
the team went by vans to
Adjuntas, which featured water-
falls and dollar-a-slice pizza.
"The problem," Paul wrote,
"is that it is so damn peaceful
here that you just want to lay in
bed and enjoy the chirping of the
birds."
On a Saturday, the team got
ready to face Puerto Rico's
under-17 national team in San
Juan. "An enormous mall right in
front of us and most of the girls
were able to stay focused on the
task at hand," Paul wrote.
The game, played in an old
concrete stadium, ended in a 2-2
tie with junior Krizzie Menez
-rnrin, hnth KIv West onolk


Afterward, the host team treat-
ed the visitors to a dinner that fea-
tured a potent homeinade hot
sauce, a small glass of which
Ashley Stepherson gulped down
to earn $12.
"Let's hope that skill doesn't
come from lots of practice," Paul
wrote.
The following night included
a trip to a Ponce mountain bar,
where polite local boys were
shocked to see, as Paul described,
"15 beautiful young girls from
the states." Dancing ensued.
"There is actually space
between the two dancers not
quite the booty dancing that the
girls are used to," he wrote.
The next soccer action was in
Aguada on a Tuesday. The
Conchs won, 7-2, as freshman
Jasmine Jones scored two goals.
After a sunburned Wednesday at
the beach, the team took to a field
in Rincon that had shredded nets
and won, 6-1, as senior Kara
Haack scored a hat trick.
The last game was against the
cocky, quick Mayaquez U-20
select team. Down 2-0 in the sec-
ond half, Haack cut the lead with
a penalty kick. Mayaquez scored
again to win, 3-1.
"We never gave up I love
that about this team," Paul wrote.
The trip had given Paul time
to reflect on his team and, as he
sat one day on the dunes and
looked at the sea, himself.
"It was a calm and peaceful
spot," he wrote, "and with friends
and colleagues getting sick and-
one even dying, it is moments
lilp. that (fr init ahnut any


moment with the girls) that help
me remember that all is right in
the world ....
"Waves can have that effect."

Marathon High School's new
head cross-country coach, Amy
Urban, says she intends to turn
around a program that in the past
has had mainly a club mentality.
"It hasn't been a strong pro-
gram and that's what we're try-
ing to do this year, make it more
competitive than it has been in
the past," Urban said.
Practices began Wednesday
for this year's season, but due to
a late start, Urban says the full
complement of runners has not
come out yet. She expects as
many as 14 runners.
But Urban says she likes what
she has seen so far from what
will be a very young team.
"We have quite a few sev-
enth-graders that have come out.
They don't have a lot of cross-
country experience, but they are
working really hard and keeping
up with all the older kids."

Thursday night from Gainesville.
St. Francis, a new school
beginning its second year of varsi-
ty sports, was established through
fundraising efforts by University
of Florida basketball coach Billy
Donovan. Among the players on
the school's basketball team is
Donovan's son Billy.
Spottswood, who attended bas-
ketball camps in Gainesville this
summer and is on an Amateur
Athletic Union team, believes the
exposure he will get at St. Francis
will enhance his chances of play-
ing in college.
"It's hard to get looked at in
Key West," he said.
Robert Spottswood, Phillip's
father, said, "It was a very tough
decision for Phillip to leave Key
West High School and his friends,
and it was a tough decision for his
mom and me. But it was a chance
to get back in a Catholic school
environment, which his mother
[Elena] really likes, and into an


outstanding academic and basket-
ball program."
Phillip Spottswood, a former
state free-throw-shooting champi-
on for youngsters 8-18, was a
part-time starter as a sophomore
on last season's 7-17 Key West
team. Late in the season, he
scored 21 points in a victory over
Marathon.
"He was coming into his own,
but this is a good opportunity for
him," Key West coach Paul Davis
said. "He'll have more visibility
.there, and he's on a team with
Billy Donovan's son."
Spottswood is living in
Gainesville with his brother
Robert, who played basketball at
Key West High two years ago and
is a sophomore at the University
of Florida.
The Spottswood name has
been synonymous with Key West
High for decades, a fact not lost
on Phillip.
"I still might try to go back
there to graduate," he said. "In my
family, it's a tradition."


year. Lattau has previous mili-
tary experience that Urban says
has definitely made practice
more interesting.
"Practice was neat because
he'd stop us and we'd do sit-ups,
so it was like a little military reg-
imen," she joked.
Of the nine students to come
out so far, Urban says five are
solid runners with strong meet
potential. Eighth-grader Tommy
Dolameade has run several local
races including the Seven Mile
Bridge Run and is training for a
triathlon in Key West.
"Tommy definitely has some
prospects. He's a hard worker
and a strong runner," Urban said.
Urban says for now the team
won't concentrate hard on race
tactics. She is looking to the
team's opening meet Sept. 10
against Key West as a starting
point by which they can set
future goals.
"I want them to have their
own personal goals ... to beat
their best times," Urban said of
her runners.
The meet against Key West
will take place at Sombrero
Country Club at 5:45 p.m.

starting at $500.


Revenue welcomed


SKYBOX / From 29

Principal Harry Russell, the
Diamond Dolphin Club has taken
off beyond all expectation.
"This community loves this
school and loves these kids so
much," Konrath said. "I was sur-
prised it took off at all, but then
when it caught on and the way
people responded, I was like,
how did I even think it wouldn't."
When she called Keys
Insurance owner and 1964
Marathon High graduate Derrick
Martin-Vegue, he immediately
signed up and became the first
customer.
And he won't even use the
tickets himself. For at least 30
years now, Martin-Vegue has
been working the first-down
chains on the sidelines at
Marathon home games.
"When this came available, I
thought it was a good idea," said
Martin-Vegue, a longtime sup-
porter of the high school. "I
won't be using them, but I
assume my family and my
employees will."
As of Wednesday, Konrath
had sold eight blue-level pack-
ages, which for $500 buys you
four season tickets to all
Marathon home games (exclud-
ing playoffs), as well as sodas
and a meal catered by students in
the school's new Culinary Arts
program.
Konrath said the fare will like-
ly be "stadium food," anything
from hot dogs and hamburgers to
bratwurst and nachos.
A silver-level package runs


$600 and buys you six seats,
while a gold-level package costs
$700 for eight seats.
Konrath said proceeds from
the skybox seats will go directly
to the Culinary Arts and football
programs.
Head football coach Lance
Martin said it will be welcome
revenue, as the team is responsi-
ble for raising the money
required to run the program.
"It's definitely good for our
fans and helps our program by
bringing in some money," Martin
said. "Football is [much] more
expensive than any other sport."
Martin said a mild estimate
would be that it costs "$400 or
$500 to put a player in uniform."
Russell said he believes the
skyboxes will "potentially get
more community members
involved in the games and be a
nice fundraiser for the Culinary
Arts and the football programs."
"Everybody I've talked to has
been impressed with the creativi-
ty and all the credit goes to Teresa
on that," Russell said. "She's a
mover and a shaker and comes up
with many ways to iaise money."
"Can you imagine, with the
lights going out there?" Konrath
said, excitedly explaining, the
program while looking out at the
field below. "It's going to be awe-
some."
Marathon opens its regular
season with a home game against
Key West at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
For more information on
becoming a Diamond Dolphin
Club member, Konrath can be
reached at the high school at 289-

Canes should expect discipline


New swim coach
is record holder
from Maryland
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwa,dow@keynoter.com

Coral Shores' new swimming
coach has his own definition of
"fun."
"I want to add some structure
and discipline to the program,"
said Mark Hill, 25. "It's not going
to be show up when you feel like
it. We need to get serious about
swimming."
"Hopefully, there will be some
fun along the way," said Hill, a
former swim-team captain at the
University of Maryland and an
ftlAtlantic Coast Conference
sprint swimmer. "But swimming
fast and winning races is fun,
too."
Coral Shores drew about three
dozen swimmers to Monday's
opening day of practice. The sea-


son starts at 4 p.m. Aug. 31 at
Founders Park with a tri-meet
against Ransom Everglades and
Miami Country Day.
In his two years at Maryland
after transferring from Arizona
State, Hill set Terrapin records in
50- and 100-yard events, and
owns a share of the 200-relay
record.
He helped coach at Maryland
after graduating, and was head
assistant coach at Washington
College before moving to the
Keys earlier this year when the
Florida Keys Swim and Race
Club hired Hill as an instructor.
He subsequently was named to
coach the Coral Shores squad on a
part-time basis.
"Everybody I spoke to referred
to his great work ethic, his disci-
pline and his strong organization-
al skills," Hurricane athletic direc-
tor Rich Russell said.
"I'm not going to assume any-
thing," Hill said of his first high-
school team. "Everybody's going


to learn how to swim competitive-
ly.
"It's good if they're fast but I
want them to feel like they're
always getting better," he said. "I
want them to do more than they
think they can do."
The Hurricanes return nine
seniors from last year's solid ros-
ter. "A team is only as strong as its
senior leaders, and I believe we
have that leadership," Hill said.
"There are some who are inter-
ested in swimming at the college
level," he said. "I paid for college
with swimming. From what I've
seen, there are some here now
who can swim at college."
He also aims to work exten-
sively with younger swimmers to
help them develop. "I want to
keep them in swimming. If so, I
fully expect that several will go on
to swim at college," Hill said.
Hill said he wants to stay in the
Keys to see that happen. "I want
to show I can do a good job and
develop a successful program," he
said. "Some say that takes at least
four years."

Kids wowed us with talent


T e idea to host a kids'
photo contest was born
from watching the camera
antics of my own children.
My daughter Claire, 9, after
going through a few disposable
cameras on Girl Scout outings
and arriving empty handed at
others, finally is the proud owner
of a simple Kodak digital cam-
era, which'I picked up at
Walgreen's for a little over $100.
After a weekend at Camp
Wesumkee on Big Pine, her first
trip armed with a real camera,
she came home with ... Campfire
songs? Girls playing games?. No.
Two videos of herself flipping
her eyelids inside out.
I should've known. A few
years ago, she apparently got her
hands on my digital camera.
When I downloaded the memory
chip on my newsroom computer,
some photos popped up that were
obviously not mine. Namely, the
close-up of our cat's butt.
Well, my co-workers man-
aged to abscond with the revolt-


ing yet
humorous
image and
now, every
Se time I leave
for vaca-
S tion or take.
Sa day off,
T guess what
my desktop
image is
when I
Sf a return? You
Jessica got it. Cat
Machetta butt.
So when
Marianna Letts' extreme close
up of a cat's eye showed up in
my e-mail, I laughed until I
cried. Thank goodness she chose
the prettier end of the family pet
to feature, although looking at
the flash reflection in the pupil,
her kitty is probably still seeing
stars.
Letts' lizard photo won the
L'Attitudes contest and her cat's
eye received two honorable
mentions from the judges -


most mysterious and, of course,
best close-up.
For the other winners and
overall honorable mentions, see
Page 5..
Here are the judges' honorable
mentions in several categories: -
Jesse Bonilla, 12, Marathon:
Best Fish for his shot of a grouper
eating at Capt.
Hook's pond,
and Keysiest
for his shot of
two pelicans in
the water.
.. Katie
Barbor, 12,
Elkton, Md.:
Best Water for
her three sub-
missions showing open
seascapes.
Samantha Bonilla, 10,
Marathon: Best Use of
Perspective for her shot of buoys
off the Marathon Lady, looking
at the dock behind Capt. Hook's.
Molly Hampton, 7, Big
Pine Key: Best Use of Pattern
and Texture for her shot of
"Dining with colored-on dollars
at No Name Pub."
Tommy Lancaster, 10, Key
Colony Beach: Best Composition
for his shot of boats gathered
behind Tilden's Scuba Center in
Marathon. "Before most people
are awake, moored boats wait
quietly at a Marathon marina for
a typical day of fun on the
water," he said of the photo.
Lindsey Purvis, 10, Lehigh
Acres: Most Newsworthy for
"Chopper Over Head," which
shows a utility worker suspended
from a helicopter ready to check
power poles.
Kaylin Purvis, 9, Lehigh
Acres: Best People Photo for
"Pirate & Sister" taken in Key
West.

Stanton wins Baron Award


Self-taught artist
planning show at
007 for November
Snowbirds will only know
what they missed by the
stories they hear. If they
thought Key West ground to a
halt while they were gone, well,
it doesn't happen that way.
The "One Night Stand"
event at The Studios that we
mentioned last week-was stand-
ing room only and combined
actors, writers, artists, directors
and audience. Artist and Key
West Burlesque enabler Marky
Pierson was in on that one.
"The best thing was, it was
random selection. Names were
drawn out of a hat for the four
teams," he said. "A clever element
that ensures fresh collaborations.
"One Night Stand" coordina-
tor Elena Devers did a great job
getting the word out and getting
the right people together."
Pierson also played a part in
the "Midsummer Night's Salon
Spectacle" at Joyce Stahl's
house. Estimates of that phantas-
magoric equinox put 300 -
some said even more combin-
ing their magical midsummer
energy.
Pierson's interactive art wall
from midsummer is on display
the rest of the month at SoDu
gallery, 1100 Duval, along with
charts and lists of who did what.
More summer fun: Billed as
"Key West's Golden Boys" (and
they are), Bruce Moore and
Bobby Nesbitt (in alphabetical
order) have a one night stand of
their own planned for 9 p.m.


Tuesday at
LaTeDa.
The two
have com-
piled a
show of
elements
from their
A most popu-
S-lar per-
L formances
from
Broadway,
Judi Bradford radio
shows,
cabarets and other stage events.
Nesbitt has sung at every
piano in town or at least it
seems that way. Always looking
elegant, ArtBeat has seen him
playing near sandy shores in a
tank top and bow tie, and of
course, in fancy dress shirts for
those air-conditioned nights.
He flits away from Key West
occasionally for gigs in London,


San Francisco and other ports of
song. This show concludes the
2007 season for him before his
summer tour in Europe..
Moore deftly creates charac-
ters faster than we can keep up.
He has played Broadway in
"Gypsy' with Tyne Daly and
Linda Lavin, "My Fair Lady"
with Richard Chamberlain and
"Grease" with its galaxy of stars.
His voice is part of the cast of
Disney animated features
"Aladdin," "Pocahontas,"
"Mulan," "Hunchback" and
"Beauty and the Beast."
This is when the locals come
out to play.
Irene Stanton was recipient
of this year's Jack Baron
Award, presented by the Ann
McKee Artist Fund. I was hon-
ored by a previous Jack Baron
award and can appreciate

anole (on the cover) at the Blue
Waters Marina in Tavemier.
Second place, $100, goes

Molly Hampton, 7, of Big

Beti's blue swing" on Little

Katie Barbor, 12, of
Elkton, Md., got the judges'
attention with her photo of the
Snipe keys.
"This is my favorite picture
because it brings back a lot of
good memories," she said. "We
drove there in my uncle's boat.
The water was shallow and
warm and everyone was just
hanging around and talking. We
had a great time. It was very
beautiful and reminded me of the
places you see on the Carnival
cruise commercials. I knew I had
to take a picture of it."

tions, see Page 2, and to see all
photos submitted, visit

Artists helping artists


ARTBEAT / From 3

Stanton's delight.
I learned of Stanton's prize
at the city swimming pool
where I swam my laps in the
lane next to Stanton.
She is a self-taught artist
who, like me and like Baron,
came to Key West in the 1970s.
"I look at my paintings the
way an audience would look at
a stage performance," she said
of her non-figurative work.
The stipend that accompa-
nies the award will help fund


Reser
*Cre


her November exhibit at
Gallery 007 on Stock Island.
SCall 292-3295 to get on the
mailing list for the show.
The Ann McKee grants are
generated by a gala art auction
each January, in which artists
contribute pieces in the 50/50
process that allows contributing
artists to be paid f6r their work.
It is looked forward to as a fes-
tive event joining artists and
patrons in a champagne-fueled
social whirl.
