No-fault sunset raises concerns


INSURANCE / From 1

system has spawned widespread
fraud, costing insurance compa-
nies thatpass the costs onto driv-
ers.
The Florida Hospital
Association says the expiration
would cause a staggering
increase in the number of unin-
sured drivers that may force state
hospitals to spend more than
$350 million treating accident
victims with no insurance.
"Our biggest concern about
losing PIP coverage is our com-
munity," said Kim Bassett, chief
executive at Fishermen's
Hospital in Marathon. "Many of
our local citizens do not have
heath insurance. Either they can't
afford it or just can't get it."
PIP ensures at least $10,000 in
medical costs will be covered.
"In any kind of auto-accident
treatment, PIP is the first place
we go" for payment, Bassett said.


"We're worried that somebody
will be taking their kid to school
and get hit, then find themselves
facing ambulance, emergency
room and doctor bills. That's not
an expense they were expecting,
and they may not have the [finan-
cial] cushion to cover it."
Officials with the state
Department of Highway Safety
and Motor Vehicles last week
said the expiration of PIP would
mean motorists still must carry
liability insurance (covering
damage to other vehicles and
motorists if at fault), but said it
would be more difficult to verify
that coverage without the PIP
requirement.
"There's a lot of public sup-
port for extending PIP," state
Rep. Ron Saunders said. "People
don't want to drive around not
knowing if the other guy has
insurance or not."
Legislators are planning to
convene for a special session on
state budget problems beginning


Sept. 18. Gov. Charlie Crist said
the PIP situation could be added
to the session, Saunders said,
"but he wants some type of con-
sensus."
"That raises the chicken-or-
egg question. You can't reach
consensus without sitting down
to meet," Saunders said. "There
has been some agreement on
extending [the sunset] but the
question is whether they should
try to reform [the insurance sys-
tem] at the same time. And one
person's reform is another per-
son's problem."
Saunders said he favors meas-
ures to attack abuse in the system,
not let the no-fault system expire
with nothing to replace it.
"If they don't come up with
some legislation to extend the
sunset, I think it's going to cause
more problems," Deginder said.
"We're going to have a heck of a
lot of uninsured people looking
for somebody to sue."


Cay Clubs to be served papers today


CAY CLUBS/ From 1

who specializes in real estate law.
Cay Clubs spokesman Chris
Brown said the company had not
been served with the complaint
and therefore could not comment
on it. A lawyer for some of the
plaintiffs said Cay Clubs would
be served by the end of today.
The owners say they were told
Sombrero Resort, then a moder-
ate-end hotel, would be upgraded
to a "world-class" facility. But
the only upgrades performed on
the property were new coats of
paint, the owners allege.
"The idea of it being a world-
class resort and marina I don't
think many people would charac-
terize it as such," Wright said. "If
you saw these units, I don't think
anyone would pay this much
except based on representations
of improvements."
Units sold for $600,000 to
$800,000 in late 2005.
Cay Clubs also has not applied
for building permits to begin ren-
ovations, the suit alleges. The
property is far from being world-
class, some owners allege.
"When the Cay Clubs defen-
dants failed to renew their lease-
back, agreement for the second
[year, [Scotli nathbun ande
[Stanley] Ahn retained an inde-


pendent rental agency," accord-
ing to the lawsuit. "Upon inspec-
tion of the property, the inde-
pendent agency declared the unit
un-rentable.
"All previously included fur-
niture was missing, the old mat-
tresses were pushed up against
the walls and the bathroom was
severely dilapidated and dam-
aged," according to the lawsuit.
Owners say they were told
they could save money by pur-
chasing the property for a
reduced price and that Cay Clubs
would give them 8 percent of
their investment back over the
next year, with payments contin-
uing monthly until upgrades were
completed also described as
the leaseback program.
The leaseback program was
billed as a way to pay mortgage
payments and other fees associat-
ed with ownership, according to
Cay Clubs promotional material
used for other developments.
Some litigants allege pay-
ments came late or not at all,
while others complain Cay Clubs
stopped paying even though ren-
ovations were never completed.
The Sombrero owners allege
the sales tactic amounts to a secu-
rity or an investment, a type of
transaction which, must be regis-
tered ,with the state Department
of Banking and Finance.


According to the suit, salesmen
Ricky Stokes and Barry Graham
are accused of using fraudulent
sales and investing tactics.
Stokes heads Cay Clubs
Wholesale, which Brown said is a
wholly separate company from Cay
Clubs, but has a working relation-
ship. But Stokes billed himself as
the national director of Cay Clubs
International, a defendant in the
suit, in a presentation last summer
not involving Sombrero Resort.
Calls to Stokes are directed to
Brown. Graham is a principal
officer of the main Cay Clubs
brand, according to documents
filed with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission.
Lawyers who specialize in
condominium and securities law
said previous offers made by
Stokes for different properties.
and in other states exist in a legal-
ly gray area between real estate,
law and securities law.
Stokes did not return mes-
sages by press time.
The defendants in the suit are
DC 709 JV LLC, owned by Cay
Clubs owners Dave Clark and
David Schwarz; Cay Clubs
International LLC; Benchmark
Appraisal Services Inc.; Pelican
Appraisals Inc.; Rosendale
Appraisers Inc.; and Cristal Clear
Realty LLC, a company also
owned by Clark and Schwarz.

No easy answers

to PIP questions


LABOR DAY WEEKEND IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO SAVE UP TO 70% OFF SUMMER FASHIONS!



VI [l


The following questions and
answers come from the office of
Florida Chief Financial Officer
Alex Sink.
+ Is no-fault going away?
If the Legislature does not
make any changes, the Florida
Motor Vehicle No-Fault Law will
expire Oct. 1. The requirement to
purchase PIP coverage would
also expire on Oct. 1.
How do I protect myself as
a driver in a fault-based system?
To make sure you have cover-
age in case you sustain any
injuries, you should consider pur-
chasing optional medical pay-
ments coverage from your auto
insurance company. Optional
medical payments coverage will
pay for medical bills incurred by
you, your family and passengers
in your car who are injured in an
auto accident. You may also wish
to increase your bodily injury lia-
bility coverage in case you injure
another person and are at fault.
+ I bought an auto insurance
policy that doesn't expire until
January. What happens to my
auto insurance policy on Oct. 1?
Regardless of when your auto
insurance policy is up for renew-
al, any-accident occurring on or
after Oct. 1 would be handled
under a fault-based systeni.
All damages from accidents
on or after Oct. 1 would be paid
by the at-fault driver. If your
insurer initially pays your dam-
ages and you are not at fault, you
may be expected to recover these
damages from the at-fault driver.
What happens if I am at
fault in an accident, and my med-
ical expenses exceed the limits of
my medical payments coverage?
Under an at-fault-based sys-
tem, the negligent party is
responsible for damages. Either
you or your health insurance will
pay for your medical expenses
that. exceed the limits on any
medical payments coverage
under your auto insurance policy.
+ What happens if a negligent
driver injures me? Do I have to
go to court to get my claims paid?
Possibly. Many times, auto
.insurance companies will settle
based on an acknowledgenient of
the at-fault driver in a particular
accident, and benefits are paid
accordingly. In some cases, there
is a dispute about who is at fault
or to the extent of the damages,


and court action may be neces-
sary.
+ What happens if an at-fault
driver who does not have auto
insurance injures me?
Hopefully, you have pur-
chased optional medical pay-
ments coverage or uninsured
motorist coverage from your auto'
insurance company. If you have,
your insurance company will
cover your medical expenses. If
you have not, you or your health
insurance will likely pay for your
medical bills. You can sue the at-
fault driver, but uninsured
motorists may not have sufficient
assets from which to recover
damages.
+ If I have health insurance
coverage, do I really need auto
insurance coverage as well?
Yes. Purchasing auto insur-
ance coverage will help you pro-
tect yourself if you are at fault
and liable for an accident.
Additionally, your health insur-
ance will not cover medical
claims of other people injured in
an accident if you are at fault.
+ What's the bottom line?
You should purchase suffi-
cient auto insurance coverage to
ensure you and your family
receive proper medical treatment.
Purchasing auto insurance will
also help protect your assets in
the event you are at fault in an
accident.

Puto finds out fate Thursday


Manager contract
among those up
for discussion
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The -much-debated fate of
Marathon City Manager Mike
Puto may finally be decided
Thursday at a special City
Council meeting to discuss city
contract renewals.
Puto's job status has been in
question for several months amid
council Concerns with his per-
formance and rumors of possible
job openings with Monroe
County.
Vice Mayor Marilyn Tempest
requested Thursday's meeting to
discuss the renewal of city con-
tracts in excess of $100,000, of
which Puto's is one. He earns
$105,000 as city manager.
Puto's contract with the city
expires Oct. 31. He is required to
give 60 days notice if he intends
to step down, while the council is
required to give him 30 days
notice should it decide not to
renew his contract.
Puto said he would approach
Thursday's meeting with nothing
but a positive attitude.


"I think I've done a pretty
good job. I'd love to stay on
board working toward a good and
better Marathon and whatever
[the council's] direction is, that's
what it will be," Puto said.
As far as other job opportuni-
ties, Puto says he has not consid-
ered the possibility.
"Right now, I haven't done
any looking," he said. "If they
don't keep me on I'll cross that
bridge."
Puto said his unofficial title of
"Mr. Marathon" is one he consid-
ers an honor and that the support
he has received from residents is
much appreciated.
"It's nice when you get the
phone calls and when you run
into people," he said. "The public
has been pretty decent about it."
"I think we'll probably get it
hashed out Thursday night one
way or the other. There will be
some kind of decision made
there," Councilman Mike Cinque
said.
Cinque said while he has a
good relationship with Puto, he
feels it is time for a change at the
manager position.
"I think we need a change
because the manager's job has
gotten too political and we need


someone who will follow the
council's direction more than
Mike," he said. "We have to set
the politics aside and figure out
who's going to do the best job."
Councilman Don Vasil agreed
that politics need to be set aside
when the council decides Puto's
fate. He added that he was disap-
pointed some outspoken critics of
the current council "seem to be
using this as a political tool rather
than just an evaluation of Mike's
job."
"Everyone loves Mike in this
city, we all know his heart is for
the city," Vasil said. "But that's
not the question; the question is
what's best for the city."
Both Tempest and Councilman
Pete Worthington said they would
wait to see how Thursday's meet-
ing plays out before commenting
on Puto's status.
"I'm glad we're going to get
this out in the open and stop all
this speculation that's been going
on," Tempest said.
"I think we'll have to wait and
see what happens Thursday,"
Worthington said. "I think Mike
has a tough road to go."
Thursday's meeting is sched-
uled to begin at 6 p.m. at the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
airplane hangar in Marathon.

maximum guaranteed price of
$31.6 million, which "may ulti-
mately cost substantially more."
"I don't see how that can
happen," Willi told the
Keynoter. "It could only happen
if the county asks for changes.
And the things we are asking
for now actually reduce the
scope."
A flurry of controversy arose
surrounding the McCoy
Terminal Complex last fall
when squabbles broke out
among county staffers.
"Based on documents and
testimony to the grand jury," the
initial report says, "we find the
county has exercised inade-
quate oversight of the contract
for the expansion of the Key
West airport."
In February, Willi said he
i was coicetieied' West P alm
S"B h-bas'eTd Morgani droup,


hired to oversee the project, had
originally promised it would
assign staffers who had experi-
ence overseeing airport con-
struction, but failed to do so.
"This was' not a bid,"
Morganti Vice President Jim
Auld said. "All personnel we
agreed to were in the contract.
On an at-risk project [such as
this], our staff is completely
open to the county's will.-We
make adjustments all the time
for the project."
"When Morganti failed to
supply the caliber of qualified
employees that the original bid
proposal stipulated," the grand
jury wrote, "this should have
been a first red flag to Monroe
County. Despite early and fre-
quent issues with Morganti, the
county made a decision to contin-
ue working with this contractor."
Willi said Morganti has more
than,delivered on the project.
"The work out there is first
rate, beautiful," he said.


"They're ahead of schedule and
making serious headway."
He said it would have cost
taxpayers additional millions to
change oversight.
Auld said his company
working with the county has
actually saved taxpayers "hun-
dreds of thousands of dollars."
Airport Director Peter
Horton warned the County
Commission in September that
the expected $25 million cost of
the new terminal was balloon-
ing. Willi immediately took
Horton off the project and
replaced him with County
Engineer David Koppel, who
began negotiating with
Morganti for a new cost ceiling.
The County Commission
approved the $31.6 million cap
in November.
Auld pointed out that
Morganti "is in full compliance
with the contract" in terms of
the guaranteed maximum price.

A Thursday meeting of the
Village- Council ended without
a clear resolution about whether
to treat sewage in the village,
pipe it to the Key Largo treat-
ment plant or try other options.
Council members opted not
to vote while waiting for results
of a discussion between Village
Manager Gary Word and offi-
cials of the Key Largo
Wastewater Treatment District.
The council discussed three
options: Treating all sewage at
four plants to be built in the vil-
lage; treating it from three
islands and sending it from two
islands to Key Largo's plant;
and pumping all of it to Key
Largo's plant.
Public Works and Utilities
Director Myles Milander issued


a lengthy report that recom-
mends treating all wastewater
in Islamorada. But several
council members said they did-
n't have enough information for
a final decision.
Treating it all in Islamorada
is the least expensive option at
$155 million in construction
and operation for 20 years, the
report says. Splitting treatment
between Islamorada and Key
Largo would cost about $166
million. Sending all wastewater
to Key Largo would cost about
$172 million.
Milander's report says
Islamorada would pay 45 per-
cent of the Key Largo plant's
operation and maintenance
costs when the plant is finished,
even if Islamorada is not ready
to connect to the plant.
The report also says the Key
Largo board wants $22 million
to move forward with the deal:
But Martin Waits, the Key
Largo district's financial officer
and an Islamorada resident,
said he doesn't think the Key
Largo district is aware of those
terms.


Body might be that

of missing teen


Vice Mayor Cathi Hill and
Councilman Don Achenberg
said they support the master
plan and a delay would cost
time and money. But Mayor
Dave Boerner and councilmen
Michael Reckwerdt and Chris
Sante said they would not vote
after hearing that the report's
cost estimates might be wrong.
The council told Word to ask
Key Largo board members if
they do want to partner with
Islamorada and if conditions in
the report are negotiable.
The council also voted
against renewing its contract
with US Water Corp. for run-
ning the sewer treatment plant
on Plantation Key.
US Water asked to be paid
$434,071 for one year, about
$200,000 more than the current
contract. That would increase
monthly bills 50 percent to $75


for homeowners using the sys-
tem.
A US Water representative
said the increase is needed to
hire a full-time maintenance
person, a part-time project
manager, and to handle
increased sludge produced at
the plant.
Sante said the increase is too
much, especially because
Islamorada is still in phase one
-of its sewer plan and flow rates
are lower than specified in the
current contract.
The council asked US Water.
for a graduated cost structure
based on the number of homes
hooked up to the plant.
Council members asked the
village Finance Department to
figure out how much it would
cost for the village to run the
plant, which Milander suggest-
ed several months ago.

Fishermen
find corpse
on oceanside
Four men fishing on the
oceanside of U.S. 1 near mile
marker 99 around noon
Saturday found a body that
appears to be that of a missing
teen, according to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office.
Deputy Becky Herrin said
that when detectives arrived,
they found the skeletal
remains still clothed in a Taco
Bell uniform. Kristopher
Richardson, 18, was last seen
early July 21, when he
returned to his Oakwood
Drive home in Key Largo in
his Taco Bell uniform. He
reportedly was drunk.
Herrin said he and his
friend had argued and
Richardson ended up leaving
their home on foot. Another


friend he worked with at Taco
Bell was staying at the Key
Largo Inn and said Richardson
showed up at his room after
asking for a place to stay. The
friend offered to open Taco
Bell so Richardson could stay
there, but when he went to get
the keys, Richardson left
Herrin said.
He was not seen again.
Richardson had lived in the
Keys since July 1, moving.
here from Plymouth, Mich.
His mother, who lives in
Michigan, reported him miss-
ing July 23 after Richardson's
friend called her to say he
hadn't been -seen in a couple
of days.
The body has not been pos-
itively identified as
Richardson's. But there was
no evidence of foul play and
no obvious signs of how he
may have died.

At some point, village

needs to decide sewers

Any definition of arm's-length negotiations should be rewrit-
ten to include an object lesson, courtesy of the Islamorada
Village Council.
After a year of hemming and hawing about shipping waste-
water to Key Largo for treatment instead of building four sewer
plants in Islamorada, the council once again failed to decide
which direction to take.
And worse, Thursday it heard sometimes conflicting stories
about how much it will cost to build and operate four plants in
the municipal limits versus building fewer plants and sending
waste north to Key Largo's plant instead.
Public Works and Utilities Director Myles Milander gave fig-
ures ranging from $155 million if Islamorada goes it alone up to
$172 million if Islamorada decides to ship their, wastewater to
Key Largo for treatment.
Since Milander's job includes running the village's waste-
water system, there may be some skepticism about how arm's
length those estimates really are. And indeed, Milander also told
the council that the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District
board wants $22 million to move forward.
That came as a surprise to the Key Largo. district's financial
officer, who just happens to live in the Village.
That left at least three members of the Islamorada council
unconvinced they had iron-clad numbers to compare.
So they directed Village Manager Gary Word to sound out the
Key Largo board's interest and report back to the Council.
Seems to us that.should have happened long ago, before the
village finds itself between a rock and a hard place.
The rock, by the way, came in the same meeting when council
members learned the vendor running Islamorada's sole treat-
ment plant now wants to double monthly bills.
On that score, the council didn't hesitate. It told US Water
Corp. "no" and is now exploring alternatives.

A battle royale heats up

Should the owners of the Southernmost House be allowed to
open a 150-seat restaurant on the upper end of Duval Street?
Neighbors, unhappy for years at various forays into commer-
cial development -for the historic property, will get a say
Thursday night before the Key West planning board.
The Planning Department has already signaled its OK despite
widespread concerns from neighbors and others about parking,
noise and spillover of commercialization into residential neigh-
borhoods.
In Old Town, there are other examples of restaurants operating
in residential neighborhoods. But the battle lines drawn here run
deep and.across generations. Thursday's meeting may very well
prove a watershed in the city's ongoing fight over quality-of-life
issues.

We need to define who needs affordable housing


EDITOR:
In reference to the Key West Alliance for
Community Housing's Helping 1,000 Families
in 1,000 Days initiative:
I went'to this meeting Aug. 8 and noticed
something was wrong with this picture. John
Dolan-Heitlinger, president of Keys Federal
Credit Union, headed the meeting. Also present
were Realtors, Key West Chamber of
Commerce president, U.S. Navy captain,
schools superintendent, a county commissioner,
the press and a few concerned citizens.
Why weren't the people who truly need
affordable housing present? You know, servers,
house cleaners, hotel workers, retail store work-
ers, laborers, school aides, etc.,Instead, the
impression I got was that most of these people
did not worry about money and would be more
interested to sell homes, offer mortgages and
approve building permits to developers rather
than to find real solutions to this affordable
housing crises.
I asked how the number of 1,000 homes
came up. John explained it was an arbitrary
number.
I asked why is there no list of people needing
affordable housing, from which we would, then
know how and what to build or rent? I was told
because there was never a study done to estab-
lish this.
We are giving developers huge breaks on


building fees, permits, land use, density, etc., to-
build affordable units. There must be a list to
work from.
I suggested we go to each business, get the
names of workers seeking workforce housing,
and find out if they would like to rent or own
and what their wages are to start getting facts
instead of ideas for marketing slogans or
mantras.
Another problem is second homes. I suggest-
ed we proportion the number of second homes
we allow to be sold in the Keys since buyers
would not be full-time residents. Other, countries
do this to safeguard housing for their workers,
who come first.
A Realtor explained that you cannot deny
anyone the right to buy a home in America. I
don't wonder why she said this because now
we're cutting into.her livelihood, and this is the
problem with these task forces. They are filled
with the wrong people.
Imagine the response the chamber had when
I suggested workers get paid affordable wages.
When the pro-development group created the
mantra "affordable housing crises," it started to
control just how this crisis would be fought.
Workshops, task forces and planning boards are
packed with people who serve the developers. It
is so bad and so sad.

Community gives student artists a leg up


EDITOR:
As the art teacher of Island Christian
School, I would like to thank many in our
community for their wonderful support for
our students in the field of art.
Each year we are blessed by businesses
and organizations that provide materials,
opportunities and scholarships for our stu-
dents. This past year, Dixie Aluminum pro-
vided paints and brushes for the new mural
created by the students in the art room. The
Frame Shop and DeClue's Fine Art Printing
& Framing have been gracious every year in
supplying many materials needed by our stu-
dents. Artist Kathleen Denis presented a
wonderful watercolor workshop to our
advanced art students.
Each year we are privileged to have sever-
al art shows where our students have the
opportunity to exhibit their work, the Artists
in Paradise Student Art. Show (Big Pine
Key), the Purple Isles Art Show (Key Largo)
and the Bay Jam put on by Islamorada
Community Entertainment (Islamorada).
Students receive generous Bay Jam
Scholarships and Pete Rosin Scholarships
each year.
At our own Island Christian School Art
Show, artists from our community donate
their time in the tedious job of judging the
show. This year we were honored to have as
judges Carmen Kelly and Teresa Kelly of the
Key Largo Art Gallery.
And photographer Michelle Young from
Endearing Studios has been, a wealth of


knowledge for our photography students and
is always willing to help out with the art pro-
gram.
As we start this new school year, I just -
wanted to publicly thank those in our com-
munity who have so generously given of
their time, devotion, resources and money to
provide something extra for our students.
Whenever I talk with other art teachers from
other places about the partnership our com-
munity has established in the arts.with our
youth, they are astounded. I have learned this
is a rarity. Thank you.

Marina's become a junkyard


EDITOR:
Not so many months
ago, people were meeting
to discuss the beautification
of U.S. 1 through Key
Largo. Part of that beautifi-
cation seems to have taken
on a real, earthy, urban
junkyard look; witness the
new design of Rowell's
Marina.
Has some peculiar artist
opted to bring an edgy, dare
I say funky, look to Key


Largo, creating an outdoor
space dedicated to artworks
featuring smashed cars,
demolished trailers and
concrete highway barriers,
all softened-by the dull
patina of overgrown weeds?
(And the colors on the old
shop are so retro!)
Methinks the owners

Private utility can beat


costs of government

"When the search for the truth is confused with
political advocacy, the pursuit of knowledge is
reducedfor the quest for power." Alsatian
Chase

Monroe County Commissioner George
Neugent's letter to the editor Aug. 22, "Private
utility doesn't offer the best deal," is another
example of what state Rep. Ron Saunders means
about our county commissioners' reputations in
Tallahassee for spending their time fighting each
other. This behavior hurts our ability to get des-
perately needed state funding.
In his letter, Commissioner Neugent asks some
"want to pump effluent to KW Resort Utilities
from Big Coppitt, when in doing so it enriches
exponentially, with every tax dollar
spent, a private for-profit corporation?"
Answer by example: The U.S. Navy
is privatizing utility services to private
corporations. The Navy understands
private companies perform certain
services in a more cost-efficient man-
ner than government.
The International City/County
Management Association among other .
organizations finds that "most local
governments have been increasing their
use of privatization in recent years." At
the end of 2001, nearly 1,300 local
governments had privatized operation Bill E
of wastewater systems, and more than is a n
1,100 had privatized operations of consult
water systems, 40 percent of the total forr
systems nationwide and increasing, news.
According to the Reason Public
Policy Institute, a 1999 study that publ
examined public-private partnerships in repres
water and wastewater systems in 29 KW R
cities serving more than 3 million cus- Utili
towers throughout the United States,
found that all of the privatizations resulted in
lower rate increases than were planned prior to
privatization up to a 40 percent cost savings.
Most citizens accept the conventional thinking
that private industry can provide services more
cost effectively and efficient than government
There is more pricing control over a private util-
ity than a government agency. To have a rate
increase, KW Resort Utilities must seek approval
of the state Public Service Commission. Local
hearings are advertised and held in the communi-
ty. The PSC will audit and approve only a limited
profit margin for the utility --which needs funds
to reinvest in infrastructure.
In contrast, county or state agencies such as the
Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority can approve rate
increases when and how much deemed necessary
without the PSC and with limited oversight.
Commissioner Neugent wrote KW Resort
Utilities is "a company whose belief is to consider
its service area made up of irritants, not cus-
tomers."
This is a false and damaging allegation. KW

1998 prior to the county expansion none of
them ever filed a grievance with the PSC.
In 2003 when it was time to connect to the south
Stock Island wastewater system, certain residents
and developers resisted connection.
Allegations included there was nothing to con-
nect to. The County Commission commissioned
URS Engineering to conduct a $250,000 study of
the Stock Island system. The URS findings pre-
sented to the commission in November 2004 con-
cluded the KW Resort Utilities system was built
as contracted and was capable of handling Stock
Island wastewater collection and treatment needs.
The County Commission approved the URS
report with a 5-0 unanimous vote (including
Commissioner Neugent). -
Still, for three years, certain residents
and developers resisted connection.
Today, most Stock Island property
owners have finally connected to the
same collection pipe KW Resort
Utilities placed at their property line in
2003.
Commissioner Neugent wrote: "And
when will KW Resort Utilities be
made to honor its contract with the
county on achieving advanced waste-
water treatment? On time was January
2007, as stated in the contract."
Commissioner Neugent is fully
larry aware of the year of Stock Island con-
ledia nection delays that he sanctioned,
ant and something beyond the control of KW
ner Resort Utilities.
maper Neugent sanctioned connection
isher delays during the four-month URS
S study, which found no problems with
ending the system and during a six-month
!esort grand jury investigation that found no
ties. wrongdoing. And during a three-month
KW Resort Utilities contract review by
a developer's delay-tactic attorney. The PSC had
already approved the contract.
The County Commission AWT funding was
provided to KW Resort Utilities only this past
September, a year late. Connection delays also
stopped the source of AWT funding.
The county wastewater engineering department
feels KW Resort Utilities has honored the terms of
its contract. KW Resort Utilities will complete the
AWT upgrade in one month, more than two years
ahead of the state 2010 deadline.
The continued Chicken Little "the sky is falling"
allegations of Commissioner Neugent are difficult
to understand.
Rep. Saunders said how important it is to
demonstrate to Tallahassee that our commissioners
can work together not always agree but profes-
sionally work together.
This is necessary to receive sorely needed finan-
cial assistance such as a state-approved bond for
$200 million rather than have the burden placed
on the backs of property owners and passed on to
renters. No one wants to loan, no less give, money

Transfers get first approval


Aim's to protect
housing stock
of mobile homes
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Monroe County is a baby
step closer to preserving
mobile homes as affordable
workforce housing after the
county's Development Review
Committee last week
approved a proposed change
to the county's land-use regu-
lations.
The new regulation's lan-
guage would allow developers
to essentially get a two-for-
one if they were to transfer
building rights to a multi-fam-
ily unit.
The way if would work, a
mobile-home park with 40
building permit allocations
would garner the developer 80
units if the receiving site fit
the county's qualifications.
Among those would be the
accessibility to non-residential
uses.


In May, the Monroe County
Commission approved a six-
month moratorium on the
redevelopment of mobile-
home- parks, hoping it would
allow time to come up with
some incentives to- slow the
loss of some of the last truly
affordable housing in the
Keys.
According to county
research, nearly one third of
the housing stock in the Keys
comprises mobile homes or
trailers.
While property-values in
the Keys have risen exponen-
tially, developers have
snatched up mobile-home
parks, hoping to transfer the
dense building rights off them
and onto waterfront residences
for maximum profit. The
result, housing proponents
say, has put a bull's-eye on
trailer parks where an abun-
dance of permit allocations
might easily be transferred to
market rate waterfront lots.
Townsley Schwab, acting
planning director for the coun-


ty, says the proposal would
allow the mobile-home parks
to remain affordable.
Transferring building rights
has been a touchy issue with
Keys. residents, especially
after Boca.Developers bought
the Seahorse RV Park on Big-
Pine Key and attempted to
transfer a varying number of
building permits out of the
park to a waterfront parcel the
company owns in Key Largo.
Despite the promise of
retaining affordable housing
on Big Pine, Upper Keys resi-
dents were concerned the
transfer would increase the
density at the former Rowell's
Marina and damage the com-
munity's character.
The proposed transfer lan-
guage, however, does not
restrict a transfer to any par-
ticular region.
The committee's approval
is a first step. Now the coun-
ty's Planning Commission
will review the proposal, after
which it will come under the
scrutiny of the County
Commission.


3rd sewer summit


is next week


Saunders calls
municipalities
to meet again
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

State Rep. Ron Saunders
says he's on track seeking
some $500 million in state
money to finish up sewer
installation throughout the
Keys.
Saunders is convening a
third "sewer summit," calling
together government officials
from all over Monroe County
to provide the state a detailed
accounting of what's needed to
get the sewers done.
The summit is set for 5:30
p.m. Sept. 6 at the Marathon
Government Center.
Saunders, with the support
of other legislators, is seeking
a multimillion- dollar bond
issue to finance a state man-
date that all islands in the
Keys be connected to sewers
by 2010.
Saunders wants each
municipality and sewer
authority to provide detailed
information on the status of
projects underway, an invento-
ry of proposed sewer projects
and the estimated cost of each.
During the first two sum-
mits, held in the spring, local
officials came up with a cost
breakdown, estimating:
Unincorporated Monroe
County, $169.5 million.
Key Largo, $157 million.


Islamorada, $112 mil-
lion.
Marathon, $82 million.
Layton, $5.7 million.
Key West, $5.4 million.
Key Colony Beach,
$491,000.
Layton, Key West and Key
Colony already have sewers;
their money would go to
upgrades and stormwater proj-
ects.
Saunders told the County
Commission at its Aug. 22
meeting, "Concurrently, I want
to be in touch with the federal
government. The check has
been in the mail for $100 mil-
lion for too long, but I think
it's been return to sender."
In 2002, Congress allocated
$100 million for Monroe
County sewers. However, less
than $8 million of that has
been appropriated the past six
years.
"Every dollar we get from
state and federal government
is one less dollar paid by"
Keys taxpayers, Saunders said.
"We've had since 1999 to get
this thing done, and we've got
three years to finish it."
Saunders' plan is to set a
timeline for local governments
to synchronize their needs and
submit a report to the state
Department of Environmental
Protection and the House
Environment and Natural
Resources Council.
That would lead, Saunders
and local officials hope, to the
state bond.

Suggested changes to

The Lobster Advisory
Panel, charged with spear-
heading the overhaul of laws
adopted piecemeal over the
decades, has extensive repre-

Summerland Key commercial
fisherman George Niles chairs
the panel.
The advisors will recom-
mend keeping size and bag
limits, while slowing or halt-
ing a schedule to further
reduce the number of lobster
traps allowed in state water.
Some type of allocation
system for various segments
of the fishery was being con-
sidered.
Advisors also are expected
to recommend devising a sys-
tem that better tracks the num-
ber of lobster taken during the
two-day sport season in late
July.
Public workshop on the
draft plan could be scheduled
in October, Sharp wrote. State
staff also is working to create

Forum gets laughs, shouts


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


When Hometown Political
Action Committee Chairwoman
Carol Wightman introduced the
Key West mayoral candidates
Monday night before almost 200
people at the Tropic Cinema, she
wasn't concerned with making
the position sound glamorous.
"It's a full-time job for
$10,000 a year," she said. "Now I
ask you: Why would you want
this job?"
The six candidates laughed
and then readied themselves for
the onslaught of questions from
business owner Jon Alien,
Community Housing Committee
Chairman Richard Grusin and
Solares Hill Editor Nancy
Klingener.
Grusin asked Carie Noda what
her vision is for Key West over
the next 20 years. She explained
she's traveled all over and feels
Key West is the most beautiful
city in the world, though she did
not say specifically what direc-
tion she'd like the city to take.


Noda, a newcomer to the race,
was born in Cuba and has lived in
Key West since she was 6 months
old. She emphasizes an effective
disaster relief plan, something
she says the current administra-
tion has ignored. She says she's
worked as an American Red
Cross executive director in New
York and was designated a Red
Cross international delegate. She
was also a substance-abuse coun-
selor and worked at social-serv-
ice entities.
Incumbent Morgan McPherson
said he'd like to "take that bumper
sticker of 'One Human Family'
and make it a heartfelt truth."
"Key West is a carnival," can-
didate Sloan Bashinsky said. "I
think we could do unbelievable
things with the pirate theme,"
touching on his proposal that Key
West should exploit its connec-
tion to the infamous sailors of the
Caribbean by dressing up its city
workers or the homeless as
pirates. *
"Arrrrrgg," said candidate and


former Mayor Jimmy Weekley
when asked to answer the same
question. And then on a more
serious note, "There has been
rhetoric, but no performance,"
adding that when he was mayor,
the Duval Street T-shirt shops
were "under control."
The question of Key West's
future was passed on to business
owner Rolland Montefalcon, who
thinks the island is ridden with "a
lot of uncontrolled develop-
ment."
He said he would like to see
the sinking of the 520-foot USS
Vandenberg as an artificial reef,
and he also supports the eventual
conversion of market-rate hous-
ing to affordable units. He's for
awarding expenditures in the
name of economics and not poli-
tics and is about "balanced devel-
opment."
He owns VIP Nutrition on
Truman Avenue.
McPherson said he would like
to see some of the 33 acres of
available Truman Waterfront land
become a Key West themed
water park and turn Wisteria
Island into the "greatest camp-
ground."
J.R. George Claing said let the
Bernsteins keep Wisteria and
he'd like to see parking fees ease
up: "I've never seen such a quar-
ter-hungry town." The retired
steel worker said he has a work
ethic to get the job done, as he
went from nothing to owning
three plants.
During closing statements,
Claing described a story of going
to see Weekley at Fausto's gro-
cery, which Weekley owns, and
was told he had to make an
appointment. He wanted to know
why he needed to make an
appointment to see a butcher.
"Because I have a 'steak' in
Key West," Weekley said joking-
ly, adding that whoever told
Claing he needed to make an
appointment was mistaken.
Bashinsky spoke out against
an assisted living facility that's
been proposed for four acres at
the waterfront. The issue is on the
Oct. 2 ballot as a binding referen-
dum.
"It bothers me that there is so
much greed," Bashinsky said of
the city's direction. "We need to
start lha ng prayer meetings
about it."
"bMotl people here are
,aGtr1lats.,' Noda said, looking out
i ito :te audience. "I am one of
Sou.

Going green
seems to be
main theme
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


The Utility Board of Key
West, which is basically the board
of directors of Keys Energy
Services, wouldn't seem to be a
big political arena but this elec-
tion year, the politics are evident.
And the issues .came out
Monday night, when the
Hometown Political Action
Committee hosted its first forum
for candidates on the Oct. 2 ballot.
Held at the Tropic Cinema and
mediated by USl Radio's Bill
Becker, the candidates seem to
echo one another on many green
proposals.
In an apparent reference to
burning waste for energy, Group


1 candidate and current City
Commissioner Harry Bethel
refuted opponent Charles Lee's
idea to vaporize Mount
Trashmore to make room for
affordable housing.
Bethel said the proposal is not
realistic and .that the city looked
at burning solid waste on
Rockland Key but Key West does
not generate enough trash for the
initiative to be cost-efficient.
Former -city planner Ty
Symroski, also running for Group
1, said he would push the use of
renewable energy.
Answering a question about
conservation, Group 4 incumbent
Mona Clark stressed education,
saying she's helped post conser-
vation tips on the utility board's
Web site.
Her opponent, former City
Attorney Diane Tolbert Covan,
said she would stress "proactive"


measures for conservation in
households by targeting "who is
using too much and getting on the
phone."
Both Clark and Covan agreed
it would be necessary to move
Keys Energy Services into a
building that can withstand a
Category 5 hurricane.
Tom Milone, challenging
incumbent Charlie Bradford for
his Group 5 seat, said he would
like to "retain outside consultants
to study the Keys and find ways of
using wind and water." He said he
supposes that a power-cost adjust-
ment, a rate component for fluctu-
ating electric bills, is necessary.
Bradford agreed, saying,
"This allows us to go in and bal-
ance out cost with ratepayers."
Milone also mentioned there
is no "state-certified solar system
provider" and that "Keys Energy
should enter that realm."
Utility Board members serve
four years.

School plans courtyard


Personalized
bricks sold
to raise money
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
Advisory Council decided it
wanted a lush, landscaped court-
yard at the new school's cam-
pus.
The only problem is none of
the $47 million allocated for the
project was earmarked for land-
scaping, so the group is forced
to raise the money on its own.
"Jackie [Eigner] and I are on
the building committee for the
high school and when the plans
were presented to the communi-
ty, we noticed there was little or
no landscaping in the original
plans," SAC board member
Lynn D'Ascanio said.
"Whatever they did give us was
cut back to nothing."
D'Ascanio came up with the
idea to sell engraved "Dolphin
Walk" bricks to fund the court-
yard project, but sales have been
lackluster thus far.
The SAC is looking to sell
700 of the bricks, which can be
customized to the buyer's lik-
ing, at $100 each.
"They've been for sale since
the beginning of the school's
construction," D'Ascanio said.
"People saw the construction
and they couldn't envision it.
Now there is a courtyard and we
have no money to fill it up
with."
The bricks will be laid
around the centerpiece of the

courtyard, a large fountaifi fea-
turing five spitting mahi-mahi
donated by the class of 2003.
D'Ascanio said the advisory
council wanted something better
than the concrete courtyard at
Coral Shores High School.
"We noticed their courtyard
is not very inviting and the kids
tend to walk around the outside
of [it]. They don't walk through
because it is bright, glaring and
hot," she said. "We thought that
would be a waste of space."
D'Ascanio said the SAC has
designed a much more appeal-
ing space for the Marathon stu-
dents to utilize.
"We've designed an amphi-
theater on one side so we can
have the band play, or teachers
if they want can take a class out-
side," she said. "There's going
to be a side with lunch tables,
trees and benches. There's going
to be paths that go through there
so the kids can walk through.


It's not only visually pleasing,
but it is meant to be used."
There will even be a grassy
mound built on the side facing
the football field so students can
watch games there.
D'Ascanio said the Monroe
County School Board agreed to
maintain the courtyard if the
funds could be raised to have it
built. She said wind- and
drought-tolerant plants will be
used to allow for the least possi-
ble amount of maintenance.
"What I would like to do is
challenge each student to sell
one brick. If everyone could sell
one, that would be a good start,"
new Marathon principal Harry
Russell said.
Flyers to purchase bricks will
be available at Friday's home
football game against Key West,
which begins at 7:30 p.m. They
can also be picked up at the
school's main office, Fish Tales
Market, from any SAC board
member, or online at http:

Cruise lines checking damage


Royal Caribbean,
Carnival at port
of Costa Maya
Associated Press

The world's two largest
cruise operators said Thursday
they were working to. assess
the damage at a Mexican port
struck by Hurricane De'an.


Carnival Corp. and Royal
Caribbean Cruises Ltd. both
use the port at Majahual,
known as Puerto Costa Maya.
But Majahual suffered exten-
sive damage when Dean swept
over the Yucatan as a top-scale
Category 5 hurricane, demol-
ishing houses, crumpling steel
girders and washing away
parts of concrete dock at the


port.
Costa Maya has become a
popular destination since it
began operating in 2001 to
provide tourist access to his-.
toric Mayan sites. But it is not
considered as critical to the
industry as other Caribbean
ports such as Cozumel or
Grand Cayman.

Port is 'out of commission'


CRUISE / From 14

date up to three cruise ships at
once and is one of only six
ports in the western Caribbean
to receive over 1 million pas-
sengers per year, according to
the port's Web site.
Royal Caribbean said it
was still assessing damage, at
the port to determine the best
way to proceed, spokesman
Michael Sheehan said.
He said one ship had a port
call at Costa Maya scheduled
for next Thursday, but the
company would have to find


an alternative if it is unable to
accommodate the ship.
Sheehan characterized the
Costa Maya port as a growing
one.
"It's a relatively new port
of call that's gaining greater
use by our company and the
industry," he said.
Carnival also said it was
assessing damage. However,
early reports were that dam-
age was extensive and "the
port will be out of commis-
sion for an indeterminate peri-
od," Carnival said in a state-
ment.
"We are working on alter-


natives for ships that call
there and hope to announce
those shortly," the statement
said.
Carnival said its other ports
in the western Caribbean sur-
vived the storm well, includ-
ing those along Jamaica's
North Coast, Grand Cayman
and' Cozumel and Calica in
Mexico.
Key West is a common port
of call for both cruise lines;
several ships headed for
Caribbean destination last
week were rerouted to Key
West due to hurricane activity.

A labor of


love for most


Not everyone
gets the holiday
weekend off
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

A huge number of Americans
will enjoy a three-day weekend
this weekend highlighted by
cookouts, beach time and proba-
bly travel. But in the 125 years
since its inception, Labor Day is
remembered more as a play day
rather than a tribute to the labor
movement.
Still, the celebration is not far
off the mark.
Samuel Gompers, an early
20th Century founder of the
American Federation of Labor,
said, "All other holidays are in a
more or less degree connected
with conflicts and battles....
[Labor Day] is devoted to no
man, living or dead, to no sect,
race, or nation."
Instead it's dedicated to the
workforce.
The holiday is rooted in the
labor movement of the early
1900s.
"Historically, unions came.
about because of the heavy-
handedness of owners," said Lt.


ndrade, who works the counter at the Overseas Market branch of the U.S. Postal
ays he plans to spend the holiday with his family at the beach.


Dave Zalenka, president of Local
3909 of the International
Association of Firefighters. The
union represents about 50
Monroe County firefighters and
paramedics.
"What unions do so that it
isn't so potentially one-sided,"
Zalenka said, "is allow the voic-
es of the firefighters to bring up
information themselves that the
County Commission may not be
aware of."
Monroe County firefighters
and law-enforcement officers
belong to a number of unions
throughout the Keys. In addition,
there are members of the
International Brotherhood of
Teamsters working in county
government, and teachers and
other school employees belong
to the United Teachers of
Monroe.
Emergency personnel gener-
ally do not get to partake of the
holiday, though.
"A career firefighter works
their 24-hour shift regardless of
holidays or even natural disas-
ter," Zalenka said. "This is a pro-
fession we joined in order to
make a difference when a differ-
ence can be made. The average
firefighter spends a third of their
life away from their families."
Thought rooted in unions, the
holiday is enjoyed by all sorts of
workers.
Adonis Andrade works for the
U.S. Postal Service in Key West.
"I plan to spend it with my
family," he said. "We're going to
Fort Zach and hang out the ham-
mocks."
Eva Ferrell, who works at
Keys Federal Credit Union, says
she will spend her extra day off
with her boyfriend and their new
puppy.
Other workers aren't so lucky.
The tourist economy of the Keys
requires workers every day of the
week, and a lot of people will
work through the weekend.
Theresa Chrudimska, who
works at Goldman's Deli in Key
West, does not regret working
over the holiday. The Czech
native says she's familiar with
the idea of Labor Day, having
grown up with a similar holiday
in her homeland.

Calling it his toughest fight,
Key West's Timmy Leonard
defeated Alex Deon in a four-
round bout Friday night before an
appreciative crowd of 1,500 at the
Sheraton Miami Mart Hotel.
"It was a battle, back and
forth," said the 35-year-old, 152-
pound Leonard, who improved as
a junior middleweight to 5-1-1.
"It was a unanimous decision, but
it wasn't a blowout."
Leonard, who has won three
consecutive fights, knocked Deon
to the canvas in the second round.
"I threw a left uppercut that
caught him on the chin," he said.
"He kind of wobbled, and then I
threw an overhand right to put
him down."
Deon, a late replacement for
Tim Himes, finally got up, but
before Leonard could go after him
again the bell rung.
Leonard took his share of pun-
ishment, including a first-round
shot that backed him into the
ropes. "It was my toughest fight,"
he said. "I've never been hit that
many times."
Leonard said he learns some-


new football season.
Quarterback Chris Rini threw
for two touchdowns and ran for
two more as the Hurricanes

"Going into our first game,

both our offense and defense,"
Canes head coach Todd Gideon
said. "We got it."


Now the Hurricanes face the
challenge of doing it again this
Friday, this time in front of a
home crowd and against a more
talented opponent.
Ransom Everglades visits
Islamorada for the Canes' home
opener at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
"This will be a big game for

Coral Shores defeated
Ransom in 2006's preseason

Ransom blanked Westminster

preseason game. "They looked a
lot better than last year," Gideon
said.
Coral Shores also seems to
have solidified, only giving up a
late score to Sheridan Hills when
the game was already in hand.

The Conchs (dark uniforms) are smothered by a dominant Boyd Anderson team Friday. Key
West hopes for better when it plays at Marathon which is coming off a 19-0 victory Friday
night.


Conchs can't run from loss


Anderson routs
Key West team
in 50-0 blowout
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Out of its league from the
opening kickoff in its presea-
son game Friday night, the Key
West High School football
team absorbed a 50-0 defeat
and resigned itself to the hope
that better days will come.
The loss to Boyd Anderson
High, a powerful 6A team from
Lauderdale Lakes, came before
several hundred fans at Tommy
Roberts Memorial Stadium.
The Class 4A Conchs took
the field clad in new red-and-
white uniforms that seemed to
betoken high expectations, but
were immediately stunned by
the swiftness of their opponent.
Before a minute had
elapsed, the Cobras were up,
13-0 scoring on an 80-yard
return of the opening kickoff
and then on a 10-yard run that
was set up by an interception of
sophomore quarterback Phillip
Young's first varsity pass.
It got worse from there, with
the 'visitors scoring either on
long runs or long pass plays. It
wa 40-0 at the half


"That's the best team I've
played against," said Conch
senior Ralph Major, who had a
14-yard run and several tack-
les, one of which forced a fum-
ble.
"We tried and fought hard,
but they were just fast and had
a lot of athletes who could
make plays in the open field,"
said senior wide receiver
Andres Garcia, who caught
Young's only successful pass.
The Conchs had a chance to
stay in the game when Young
led them on a drive to the Boyd
Anderson 7 yard line, setting
up a first-and-goal late in the
first quarter. But Alfred
Rahming was dropped for a
seven-yard loss, Young missed
on a pass into the end zone and
Tom Daubs' 27-yard-field goal
attempt was blocked.
On the ensuing possession,
the Cobras used passes of 51
and 36 yards to score again and
increase the lead to 21-0.
Boyd Anderson reeled off 19
more second-quarter points and
would have had more if not for
an interception by Chris Harris
in the end zone.
"We've got to get better and
get back to the fundamentals,"
Key West coach Robert James
Raid Mnndav "We. did snme.


good things, like that drive in
the first quarter, and we didn't
lie down despite being out-
manned."
There was another bright
spot to consider, he added: "We
won't face anything like that
again."
Key West will open the reg-
ular season at Marathon at 7:30
p.m. Friday, the first of three
consecutive road games.

ly will be a big part of the-Cane
offense all season, Gideon said.
Ransom barged for nearly
250 yards rushing in shutting out
Westminster Academy, which
has a proud football tradition.
*Nico Lagueruela had 117 of
those yards.


"Ransom has always been a
predominantly run-oriented
team, and they've got a big back
[Lagueruela] this year," Gideon
said. "Their whole game plan is
to get him going. So we really
have to focus on defense this
week to try to shut him down."

"Our defense was the key,"
Gideon said. "It was just a great
defensive game. Our guys held
[Sheridan Hills] to something
like minus-13 yards in the first
quarter."
Linebackers Julius
Blankenship, Courtney Dixon
and LaDarius Sanders led the
charge, he said. "They did a real-
ly good job tracking the ball
down," Gideon said.
The Sharks had trouble get-
ting out of their end of the field,
which put the revamped
Hurricane attack in good posi-
tion to start drives.
Rini showed his experience
behind center, hitting 13 of 21
passes for 194 yards and two
touchdowns. No passes were
intercepted.
Randell Jackman grabbed a
12-yard touchdown toss, and
Darius Kittle pulled in a 2-yard
scoring catch.
Rini scored on two runs, both
from two yards out. He had 26
yards on the ground as the Canes
ran for 90 yards.
Blankenship, the Canes' lead-
ing rusher with 29 yards, also
scored on a two-yard plunge.
Manny Gonzalez and Kittle
also ran well with about 20 yards
each, Gideon said.
Coral Shores' rebuilt offen-
sive line "wasn't too bad" for the
first time out, said the coach.
"Things got a little porous at
times but overall, they got the
job done."
William Bassett capped the
scoring with a 29-yard field
goal. Bassett's accurate leg like-

Cane swimmers dive in

Coral Shores High School

join the football Hurricanes in
opening the home schedule of the
regular season Friday.
Ransom Everglades and
Miami Country Day are sched-
uled to join the aqua Canes at a 4
p.m. tri-meet at Founders Park in
Islamorada.
"We're all ready to get going
here," new Hurricane coach
Mark Hill said.
The swimming roster for spe-
cific events was still being settled
by workouts this week, but Hill
said varsity veterans who
advanced to the 2006 state
regional meet likely would swim
individual events and relays.
Those include senior

Coral Shores also has a home.
dual meet scheduled Tuesday
against Archbishop Carroll.
Meanwhile, the Lady
Hurricane volleyball team travels
to perennial District 16-3A power
Gulliver Prep on Thursday, then
plays its home opener at about
5:30 p.m. Friday against Florida


Christian. The varsity match fol-
lows a 4 p.m. JV match.
Coral Shores split two match-
es in a preseason tournament in
Tavemier last week. Results from
the Keys Classic event do not
count in regular-season stand-
ings.
And Hurricane runners open
the boys and girls cross-country
season at 4 p.m. Tuesday in a
Lower Keys meet hosted by Key
West High School.


Second half big for Fins


MARATHON / From 18

yard field-goal attempt because of
the wind and hash mark the ball
was positioned on to go for it on
fourth down. Later in the half, the
Dolphins again drove into the red
zone before negative yardage
pushed them out of field goal
range.
The game remained scoreless
after two quarters, but Marathon's
offense exploded for scores on its
first three possessions of the sec-
ond half. Martin said a change in
blocking assignments led to the
Dolphins' second-half success.
"We just made some adjust-
ments and things started to hap-
pen," he said.
Howard scored a 46-yard
touchdown on the Dolphins' first
possession of the second half.
After a Pope John Paul three-and-
out, Howard would score again on
a 75-yard run.
Marathon again forced Pope
John Paul to punt on their ensuing
possession, which Fernando
Taylor returned 40 yards. On the
very next play, Taylor caught a
32-yard touchdown pass from
White to give the Dolphins a 19-0
lead.
Marathon dominated defen-
sively as well, holding Pope John
Paul to just 69 yards rushing on 37
carries and 29 yards through the
air on eight pass attempts. Still,
Martin said the unit will need
more work before Friday's regular
season opener against Key West.
"As well as our defense
looked, they made mistakes we
have to clean up this week," he
said.
Martin singled out the efforts
of defensive end Thomas Ryan
and cornerback Stanley Jean
Charles on defense.
.- i, I i ) I L ", i


"Thomas dominated the line of
scrimmage in his first varsity
start," he said. "Stanley ... they
didn't pass very often and he
played exceptional run defense
for the game."
SFriday's game against Key
West will begin at 7:30 p.m. at
Marathon High School.

thing each time he fights. Friday
night, he learned that he has a
"no-quit" attitude, "I did get
caught quite a bit, but I never
wanted to quit," he said.
He said he has acquired the
stamina necessary to move up to
six-round fights.
"I could have used a couple of
more rounds to finish [Deon]
off," said Leonard, whose next
fight will be at the Sheraton
Miami Mart on Sept. 21.

Van Staden wins
Key West boxer Danny Van
Staden also won Friday night in
Miami, knocking out Amaury
Torres in the first round at
Miccosukee Resort and Gaming.
In improving to 5-2, the mid-
dle welterweight fought for the
first time at 140 pounds, up 10
pounds from his previous fights.
"When I was at 130 I'd run out
of gas in the third or fourth
rounds because my upper body
was too weak," said Van Staden,
who bulked up by lifting weights
and eating more.

Anglers sharpening love


Popularity
of swordfish
keeps on growing

It's been swordfish on this
page three straight weeks now,
and that can mean a few things:
Offshore fishing has been
slow, so more anglers are experi-
menting with swordfish.
Anglers have a newfound
infatuation with this new fishery.
Tournaments are starting to
catch on to the swordfish craze.
All of that seems to be the case.
Take, for example, the
Islamorada Swordfish Tour-
nament, held from the Islamorada
Fishing Club this past Friday
through Sunday. However, organ-
izers are not just catching on since
this was its fourth year, and this is
a two-part tournament series with
the second leg being the Miami
Swordfish Tournament Sept. 27
to 30.
Twenty-five teams only
three from the Keys; most of the
others were from Miami took
to the waters for the nighttime
event. Organizer Capt. Bric
Peeples hoped for more participa-
tion from Keys fishermen.
"There are a lot of fine sword-
fishermen here in the Keys and I
would think that they would want
to see how they stack up against
the Miami crowd," he said. "We
even catered to the Marathon and
Key West fishermen who stated
that they wanted to be able to fish
out of their home ports and not
boat up to Islamorada, and we
still did not get almost any teams
from those areas."
Despite winds creeping into
the 15-knot category late
Saturday, fishing seemed to be
steady.
First overall was the Miss Britt
II from Miami, with captains
Alex Castellanos and Ray Rosher
at the helm. Their team com-
prised anglers Bill Danko, who
also secured top-angler honors,
and Robbie Ramirez.
The Miss Britt II team caught
and released five swordfish in
two nights not including a
146-pound fish brought to the
docks for weighing. That fish
broke a three-way tie among
other teams that also caught and
released five broadbills.
Coming in second was the Bi-
Polar, also from Miami. The


Cal Sutphin


team con-
sisted of
Capt.
Ne. son
Fonseco
and anglers
Lazaro
Mendez,
Richard
Peeples IV
and Luis
Naya. The
t e a m
caught and
released
five swords


but did not have a weight fish.
The largest weighed fish of
the tournament was a very
respectable 208-pound swordfish
weighed in by angler and Capt.
Chip Sheehan on the Chips Ahoy
out of Miami. Sheehan's fish nar-
rowly beat out runner-up Robert
Borges' fish by 4 pounds. Borges
fished on The Bet captained by
Jim Scardina from Miami.


... "" .-.

.


There was a Keys connection
with the third-placed weight fish
coming in at 189 pounds. The
team Czech Mate with Capt. Josh
Gilmartin and angler Rich
Malafy of Marathon had a good
showing.

New tournament
Big Time Bait & Tackle in
Marathon and Cudjoe Sales are
the sponsors of the new Florida
Keys 36-Hour Swordfish/Deep
Drop Fishing Tournament.
The mandatory captains'
meeting is at 7 p.m. Oct. 19 at
Sparky's Landing at the Key
Colony Beach Marina. Lines in
the next day is at 7 a.m.
Following the second day of fish-
ing Oct. 21, an awards banquet
