Marathon City Manager
Mike Puto narrowly staved off
termination Thursday, as the
City Council voted 3-2 in favor
-of awarding him a six-month


contract extension.
Residents turned out in
droves to support Puto, forcing
the special meeting to review
city contracts in excess of
$100,000 to literally be held
inside the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office airplane
hangar at the Marathon airport.
Meetings there are normally
held in a room above the
hangar.


Terms of the contract will
provide for renewal after six
months, but the council can
fire Puto at any time and pro-
vide no severance.
Puto had suggested a one-
year extension with a six-
month review, termination at
will and no severance.
Public sentiment at the
meeting was overwhelmingly
pro-Puto, including support of

Busy weekend is here


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


SWeather may determine what
kind of holiday-weekend busi-
ness Labor Day will bring to the
Florida Keys.
"Labor Day isn't our busiest
time but it's still the last three-day
weekend of the summer," said
Officer Robert Dube of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conser action Commission.
"It's the last big boating week-
end tor a hile." Dube said. "If it
looks like good weather. they'll
come.
"Labor Day weekend is busier
than a normal weekend, but a lot
depends on the weather." agreed
Virginia Panico. e\ecunve \Ice
president of the Key West
Chamber of Commerce. "There
usuallU are a lot of Labor Day
walk-ns [at resorts]. It's not one
of those times when people just
can't find a room."
Panico said. "Labor Da\ tradi-
tionally has not been a big three-
da\ weekend for us. The kids are
back in school, and parents don't
want to upset the family routine."
The number of tourist stop-
ping at the Florida Keys Visitor
Center in Key Largo earlier this


week was light but expected to
increase today through Sunday.
Rooms in the Upper Keys were
still available, a staffer said.
All available law-enforcement
patrol boats from the FWC and
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
will be on the water, but no spe-
cial operations are planned for
the Sandbar anchoring spot in
Whale Harbor off Islamorada.
"We expect crowds out there
but not the crowds \we see at cer-
tain other times." Sheriff's Office
spokestomnan Beck Hermn said.
The Li.S. Coast Guard \will
join local and state agencies in
watchuig for cases of boating
under the influence in Ke\s
waters. Lt..I.g. Mike Bell said.
"The manne environment is
inherently dangerous." he said.
"The addition of alcohol to the
mix can be deadly. "
The Flonda High\ay Patrol is
taking part in a national drunk-
dri ing crackdown effort called
"O'er the Limit/Under Arrest" that
ends with Labor Da\ weekend.
"Durinn last \ear's [Fnrda\-

according to the FHP. "Si\r\ four


percent of those drivers and pas-
sengers who were killed in vehi-
cles normally equipped with safe-
ty belts were not using them.
Also, 38 percent of the fatal traf-
fic crashes were alcohol-related."
At Founders Park in
Islamorada, this. Labor Day
Weekend marks the first time that
non-residents will face newly
increased park-admission fees.
People \hho cannot short

$10 for children under age 10.
"That's a fee for admission to

parks director John Suner said.

Celebrating our past


Sombrero work


starts Tuesday


Keynoter Staff


Reconstruction of Sombrero
Beach Road in Marathon is
scheduled to begin Tuesday and
last around 280 days.
The work zone is from
Sombrero Boulevard behind
Publix to Avenida Primiceria
near the beach.
One lane will be closed and
traffic will be managed by flag-
men on each side. Closures will be
from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.
But special consideration will be
made for Marathon High School
traffic; lane closures will not be
permitted during school speed-
zone hours in the school zone.
The speed limit in the con-
struction zone will go down from
the current 30 mph to 20 mph.


The $4.3 million Florida
Department of Transportation
project includes widening and
resurfacing the road with 3 feet of
unpaved shoulder on each side,
and adding new stormwater
drainage, a resurfaced bike path
and flashing school-zone beacons
at the school.
There will also be decorative
streetlights and stamped asphalt
crosswalks to beautify the project
area. The 135 black, old-fash-
ioned style lights will be spaced
roughly 70 feet apart for the
length of the road.
In the event of a hurricane, the
work zone will be secured and
travel lanes will be cleared for
evacuation.

Keys have waterspouts


RADIOS / From

Moore of Kansas are sponsoring
C.J.'s Home' Protection Act,
named for a 2-year-old killed in
an Indiana tornado two years ago.
It would amend the National
Manufactured Housing Con-
struction arid Safety Standards
Act of 1974 to require that weath-
er radios be installed in all manu-
factured homes built or sold in
the United States
Manufactured homes, accord-
ing to HUD and Florida's
Department of Highway Safety,
are built on a chassis, wider than
8 feet and transportable in one or
more sections.
The legislation cites an eco-
nomic statistics report from 2006
in which the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration
found more than 40 percent of
tornado fatalities occur in mobile
homes.
"It might not be a bad idea,"
said John Stump, president of the
Ocala-based Southern Structures
Inc., "but I believe in personal
responsibility."
Stump's company actually
builds modular homes, which
would not fall under the require-
ment.
Though he says the line
between manufactured and mod-
ular blurs with innovation, one of


the main distinctions is that mod-
ulars usually withstand a higher
wind load than do manufactured
ones.
Still, he said singling out any
particular type of construction is
unfair.
"Our industry doesn't really
like the implication that manu-
factured homes must have it
when no one else does," Stump
said. "Does that mean my home
is inferior?"
Though the Midwest is likely
the target of.this proposed legis-
lation, Strahan says there can be
as many as 10 tornado watches
annually in the Keys.
"Our tornadoes are very
small," Strahan said. "You hardly
see them on radar. Our typical
waterspout is not like a typical
tornado. Waterspouts form along
a cloud line. However, a water-
spout, whatever it comes from, is
called a tornado when it hits
land."
Strahan said weather radios
have become quite sophisticated
in recent years, allowing warning
alarms in a single county if
there's a threat. Soon, he said,
forecasters will be able to "draw
a box on a screen" and narrow the
alarms to an even more precise
region.
If approved, the radio require-
ment. would be part, of HUD's
Construction safety standards, ,

School Board to


seek $14M loan


It would be
repaid from
future taxes
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburmie@keysreporter.com


The operating budget isn't
final for next fiscal year, but the
Keys' school district is already
looking at borrowing money.
At its Tuesday meeting, the
Monroe School District Board
voted to start the bidding
process for a tax anticipation
note of up to $14 million to
help finance operating expens-
es. Such a note is basically a
short-term loan issued in antic-
ipation of future tax collec-
tions.
Jerry Ford, a financial advi-
sor with Ford & Associates,
said the loan would end June
30, 2008, and likely carry a 4
percent interest rate.
Ford said the district could
reduce its cost by banking the
money to earn interest until it's
needed.
The board voted unanimous-
ly to request bids for the note,
but Chairman Andy Griffiths
asked members if they were
"being politically smart and fis-
cally irresponsible" by borrow-
ing money instead of raising it
through taxes;
Griffiths said that after
researching nine other Florida
school districts, he found that
all but one had levied the maxi-
mum property tax rate allowed
for construction projects for the
current year. School districts
separate the construction tax
rate from the total rate.
The Monroe district levied
only one-quarter of the maxi-
mum tax rate for construction.
The district levied a tax rate
of 50 cents per $1,000 of
assessed value. The state maxi-
mum rate is $2 per $1,000.
The district's overall tenta-
tive tax rate for the 2007-08 fis-
cal year is $2.95 per $1,000.
The current millage is 3.06.
The proposed 2007-08 oper-
ating budget is $92.2 million.
Griffiths said that even with
a lower tax rate, high property
values here-provide the district
with .more money othanivanost


districts. But he said higher
teacher salaries and construc-
tion costs result in more money
spent.
He also said the ability to
raise money locally puts
Monroe at a disadvantage
because districts that can't raise
enough money through local
taxes are subsidized by the
state. Subsidized districts
receive one lump sum at the
beginning of the school year,
but Monroe County must wait
until taxes are collected in the
spring to receive funding.
Acevedo told board mem-
bers that if they don't want to
borrow money, they need to
slow school construction.
Griffiths suggested levying
more tax money for capital
projects in the future to avoid
paying interest on borrowed
funds.
Acevedo said nearly $98
million in bond money to build
the new Marathon High and
Key Largo and Poinciana
schools is nearly spent down.
The bond is being paid back by
a half-cent sales tax Keys vot-
ers OK'd for school construc-
tion.
Next up for construction are
a new Horace O'Bryant Middle
School in Key West and
Plantation Key School.

Trumbo Point
Also Tuesday, the board also
accepted in principle a proposal
from Old Town Key West
Development to build work-
force housing on Trumbo Road,
where the district has its admin-
istrative offices.
The proposal passed on the
condition that Old Town has 18
months to recommend a new
location for administrative
offices and recommend a solu-
tion for a stalled housing proj-
ect for the former Marathon
Manor nursing home.
Cay Clubs, the development
and management company, this
year dropped out of a deal to
buy the property from the
School District for $7.4 mil-
lion.
The district initially bought it
for potential employee housing.

Keys Opinion


Puto's earned right

to prove his worth

So, how would you like to work with the sword of Damocles
dangling over your head?
That's the uncomfortable position Marathon City Manager
Mike Puto faces with a six-month contract extension and no
job security whatsoever.
He won that extension on a 3-2 vote, just like many of the
close votes being counted now with newcomers Mike Cinque
and Don Vasil pushing to change things.
During a series of close votes at a special Thursday City
Council meeting, it became clear that Marilyn Tempest, the
vice mayor, could be the swing vote deciding Puto's fate.
And the sword is dangling mighty close, with Puto subject to
firing at any time and with no severance package.
That's hardly a vote of confidence in a man who has given his
-entire life to the city in various ways, as a schoolteacher, vol-
unteer firemen, later chief of the countywide volunteers. He
served on the County Commission, became mayor of Monroe
County, and serves on.
And the number of community boards he serves on is too
numerous to mention.
Once the city incorporated, Puto wound up among early hires
to runthe Community Service Department. He was selected as
city manager in October 2004 by a unanimous vote after the
city spent months and a lot of money on a national search.
At Thursday's meeting, Puto defenders who spoke included
former Mayor Jeff Pinkus, who confessed he was not a big
Puto supporter for the post back in 2004.
But he urged the current council to give Puto a chance, not-
ing it takes years of experience to become an effective manag-
er.
What he left unsaid is the problem inherent in recruiting
strong managers from outside, especially given the learning
curve Marathon experienced with its two previous managers.
Puto grew up in Marathon. He learned what he knows in the
school of hard knocks. And quoting local attorney Hal
Schumacher, "I don't think you can find [Puto's] loyalty and
commitment at twice the price."
Yes, Puto is not organized and he doesn't know how to dele-
gate. He's the first one to grab a hose and fight the fire. Now
he's been given a six-month contract extension to learn how to
manage.
It won't be easy.
But the council owes it to Puto and the city to give him
that chance.

Mosquito Control chief disputes budget numbers


EDITOR:
The Keynoter issues of Aug. 22 and 25
contained an article by the staff and a col-
umn by the publisher, which expressed con-
cern about the ballooning budget of the
Florida Keys Mosquito Control District.
Perhaps the Keynoter staff and Virginia
Panico, executive vice president of the Key
West Chamber of Commerce, would be less
alarmed if the correct budget figures were
used. The inaccuracies are too numerous to
cover here so I will refer only to a few of
the most absurd ones.
The most outrageous inaccuracy is the
statement that the district's operating
expenses will increase 41 percent the next
fiscal year. The facts are the district's budg-
et will comply with the state Legislature's
guidelines, which will generate tax revenue
of approximately $14,100,000 compared to
the current year, which is $14,600,000. This
will result in a $500,000, or 3.4 percent,
decrease for fiscal year 2007-08. The operat-
ing expenses (total budget less reserves,
contingency and capital outlay) for the com-
ing year are down 6.3 percent, not an
increase of 41 percent as reported.


Not all funds rolled over to the following
fiscal year are contingency funds, which are
budgeted for emergency uses such as addi-
tional pesticides that are required during
especially heavy mosquito breeding seasons
and aircraft-engine replacement. Reserve
funds are for major items such as buildings
and aircraft replacement.
As a consequence of common-sense plan-
ning and budgeting, the district has been
able to pay for two helicopters and two
planes at the time of acquisition and the
Marathon hangar complex as it is being con-
structed. All are paid for and the district has
not exceeded budget.
Though not reported by any mrfedia publi-
cation, the district has reduced its millage
rate by 26 percent the past three years.
Ed Fussell, director
Mosquito Control District

Editor's Note: District expenses will fin-
ish 2007 at $9.3 million, not counting
reserves or contingencies. The district's pro-
posed operating budget for 2007-08 is $13.2
million. That's $3.9 million, or 41 percent
more, than current-year spending.


Here's oneway for Mosquito Control to save money


EDITOR:
I am writing this letter in reference to
your article on the Florida Keys Mosquito
Control District asking for a 41 percent
budget increase [in annualized spending] for
the next budget year.-
I was driving our company van to a job
on Big Pine Key. It was 7:30 a.m. and as I
approached the high point of the Seven Mile
Bridge heading south, a vehicle heading
north was in the southbound lane, passing a
line of traffic. I was able to lock up the
brakes and pull over as far as I could to
avoid a head-on collision. The vehicle pass-
ing the line of traffic, the vehicle that
almost hit me head on, was a Mosquito
Control pickup truck.
I was very concerned about this incident
and I called Mosquito Control to report
what happened. The person I spoke to
shared my concern and said he would speak
to all the drivers that day coming to work

Pay for what you want
EDITOR:
In regard to a recent letter about racial
slurs, I am not against any nationality, but
there are some things that need to be
changed.
Several months ago, I noticed my cable
kept increasing each month by about $5.
When I contacted Comcast Cable to inquire
about the increase, I was told that Cubans
wanted more Latin stations. We already
have Latin stations, so if the Cubans want
any more, let the Cubans pay for them.

from that area. I believe he said there were
three trucks.
Later it occurred to me, [if they were
heading to work in district trucks so early in
the morning], why would three trucks leave
Marathon after working hours and drive to
their residences? Why couldn't they use
their own vehicles? It would appear that
Mosquito Control allows these employees
from Marathon to use a county truck to
drive to Big Pine and beyond on taxpayer
expense.
I believe an outside audit to see if we
could perhaps save a few tax dollars on
Mosquito Control would be a prudent idea
on behalf of the taxpayers.

Wildlife refuges are there
for a reason the wildlife
EDITOR:
Ever watch a rabbit run? Ever watch a rabbit trick a
dog and circle back on the trail and hear the dog in the
distance yelping, having lost the scent?
Have you ever seen a raccoon run? So what do
these raccoons do, sneak up on rabbits and pounce? I
know after all these years of animal study, all of these
universities studying wildlife, there must be a study to
back up the National Key Deer Refuge's notion that
Keys raccoons are rabbit hunters. Where is the study?
Show it to us.
In the old days, Indians, settlers and sailors would
do a bur on the upwind side of the islands and wait
on the downwind side and catch the deer, raccoons,
rabbits and whatever other protein came out. Hunger
was the driving force.
The hunters moved on. Now we have autos killing
raccoons at a fairly good rate, though not fast enough
for the refuge. The wildlife refuge now has become a
hunter, trapping wildlife that has been here in the
Lower Keys since the melt of the ice age.
The animals have adapted to vegetation and the
environment.
The Florida Keys National Wildlife Refuges are
just that set up for protecting the environment -
wildlife and keeping exotic species from over-
whelming the lands around us (the most exotic of all).
John Duke
Little Torch Key

Editor's note: National Key Deer Refuge Manager
Ann Morkill says trapping feral cats and raccoons on
Big Pine Key is being done "to effectively evaluate
whether reducing predation pressure will benefit the
Lower Keys marsh rabbit," which is a target of both
cats and raccoons.

Business should pay more
EDITOR:
Give me a break, Monroe County property taxpay-
ers. You are victims of unfair taxation and you all
seem intimidated and afraid to take action.
I recently moved from Nevada, which is controlled
by developers and casino workers, two of the richest
entities in the estate. Property owners pay unfair taxes
because their politicians are afraid to increase
builders' impact fees and raise casino hotel owners'
gaming taxes. The governor and other leaders would
be out of jobs if they defied these high-dollar special
interests. Our last Nevada governor was subsidized
with $2 million in gamblers' campaign dollars.
Hotels and motels here in the Keys with gross rev-
enue more than $250,000 should pay at least double
the current room tax. Tour companies should be
awarded at least 25 percent increases. Owners of con-
struction companies are definitely prospering; their tax
bills reflect assessments from the 1950s, not 2007.
I've met some of the county commissioners and the
Monroe County tax collector. All these people individ-
ually seem honest and of good character. However,
once I happened in on a closed meeting chaired by one
commissioner. This protocol is not necessary here in
the Florida Keys. But nobody is perfect.
The incident causes me to wonder if a solution to
lower our taxes can be found if there is some coalition
between commissioners and big business. The same
scenario existed in Nevada. I hope not.

Council votes to keep Puto


PUTO/ From 1

former Marathon mayors John
Bartus and Jeff Pinkus.
Bartus lauded Puto's efforts
in the aftermath of Hurricane
Wilma and said the council
would be unwise not to consider
the experience he brings as a
certified emergency manager.
"In terms of heart and soul,
nobody has put more into this
town ... than Mike Puto," Bartus
said. "To do anything but extend
-his contract would do a disserv-
ice to this city."
Pinkus, who was on the
council that originally appointed
Puto manager, said no one
believed he should get the job
less than him. But he urged to
council to keep Puto on, saying
it takes years of experience to
become a quality city manager.
"I am not sorry I voted to
give him a chance," Pinkus said.
Puto sat stoically as a count-
less stream of citizens praised
his tireless devotion to the job
and his accessibility and will-
ingness to assist any resident in
need.
"I don't think you can find


loyalty and commitment at
twice the price," local defense
attorney Hal Schumacher said.
"He is always thinking about
every one of us and how to
improve our lives, what more
can you ask from a city manag-
er," Fishermen's Hospital Chief
Financial Officer Ted Quinn
said. Quinn was reading from a
statement prepared by
Fishermen's Chief Executive
Officer Kim Bassett.
All five council members
expressed concerns with certain
aspects of Puto's performance,
but differed greatly in their
opinion of how to approach his
contract.
Councilman Pete Worthington
said he was in favor of extending
Puto's contract for another year,
but said he would like to "work
some issues out privately with
Mike and also go over some
issues council has."
"I think Mike's come a-long
way. There's been some issues
and there's still issues in the
community M-ike hasn't
addressed," Worthington said,
citing a lack of fire hydrants and
Little Venice road paving.
Vice Mayor Marilyn Tempest


said she felt being a good city
manager might require an
unnatural change in Puto's per-
sonality.
"I don't want this to be a
popularity contest. If it is a pop-
ularity contest, he wins,"
Tempest said.
Councilman Mike Cinque
and Don Vasil said they feel it's
time for a change in the city
manager position.
"I would not support renew-
ing his contract and would pre-
fer to see if we can bring some-
one else in," Cinque said,
adding he's lost faith in Puto's
ability to follow council's direc-
tion.
"Mike's positives actually do
him a lot of detriment in his
job," Vasil said. "As far as put-
ting in the time and effort, I
don't think we'll get anybody
close to that. Mike sometimes
runs his own agenda and that's
not what the manager's job is."
Mayor Chris Bull said Puto
has deficiencies as a manager,
but he ultimately supported
keeping him on.
Council first voted down a
Worthington motion to adopt
Puto's contract proposal by a 3-


City Manager Mike Puto (right, sitting) awaits his fate Thursday

anytime.
2 vote, with Tempest, Cinque
and Vasil dissenting.
It also voted down, again by
a 3-2 vote, a motion by Vasil to
keep Puto on a monthly basis
and immediately begin a search
for a new manager. Only Cinque
and Vasil voted to support that
motion.
The contracts of City
Attorney Jimmy Morales and
Finance Director Peter Rosasco
were also extended at


Thursday's meeting.
Puto praised the work of
M.T. Causley, to whom the city
has outsourced its Building
Department operation. He float-
ed the idea of combining the
building and planning depart-
ments.
Puto also recommended the
city's contract with the Middle
Keys Community Land Trust
not be renewed, saying the con-
tract "has not been productive."

Bridge expense


'hard to swallow'


DOT officials
says to expect
rising costs
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Several Marathon City
Council members were none too
pleased with the ballooning price
tag to repair the crumbling Boot
Key Bridge presented by a
Department of Transportation
engineer at Tuesday's council
meeting.
Frank Guyamier, a DOT
structures and facilities engineer,
told the council what was esti-
mated to be a $5 million project
will likely cost in excess of $7
million by the time construction
begins.
"Construction costs go up
quite a bit in the Keys,"
Guyamier said. "When you see a
$7 million tab showing up, be
ready to deal with it."
The council still voted to
approve a resolution creating a
special taxing district by which
the island's three parcel owners
would fund a percentage of the
proposed repairs. But they sched-
uled a workshop for 9 a.m. Sept.
6 at the Marathon Garden Club to
further examine costs and alter-
natives to the costly repair.
Deputy City Manager C.J.
Geotis told the Keynoter he was
informed by DOT the initial $1.5
million repair to the bridge would
likely begin in 2009. The city
was to foot the bill for that repair
before splitting remaining costs
with the parcel owners.
Guyamier ran down a list of
possible alternatives to renova-
tion, including demolishing the
bridge entirely at a cost of $2 mil-
lion or simply replacing the leaf,
or draw portion, of the bridge at a
cost of $800,000. He also told the
council the leaf could then be
sunk as an artificial reef.
Guyamier also said he would
prefer to see a new leaf installed
if the city chooses to move for-
ward with the renovation. He said
doing so would save the city
money long-term and add only
$200,000 to the initial cost.
"I don't think it is appropriate
at this time to spend [$7 million]
on' ,A'bridge to'.hoIn here'," ,said
, F. ;. ^ < i * ' : .


Councilman Don Vasil, who
requested Guyamier appear
before the council.
Mayor Chris Bull also
expressed concerns with the proj-
ect after hearing the newest cost
estimates, saying the original $5
million figure was "hard to swal-
low then." -
"You're talking about big
bucks to gp do three land owners
down there," he said.
Vice Mayor Marilyn Tempest
and Councilman Mike Cinque
said they favor moving forward
with the project as is.
"Boot Key down the road is
going to be an asset to this com-
munity. I'd hate to lose that
bridge," Cinque said.
The city has $400,000 remain-
ing in federally earmarked funds
to repair the bridge. Guyamier
said the funds could be "switched
over to construction costs" if the
city decides to go another direc-
tion with the bridge.

Carlisle pleads for fee waiver


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon City Council,
meeting in regular session
Tuesday, took the following
actions:
Heard a presentation from
Building Official Bob Welch
about the cost of city impact and
building-permit fees for the Sea
Grape affordable housing project
at mile marker 50.5.
Welch said the fees calculated
to date are in excess of $95,000
but indicated they are "a snapshot
in time" and subject to change.
Lloyd Boggio, chief executive
officer for Sea Grape developer the
Carlisle Group, said he feels the
council should abide by an original
agreement made three years prior
by which the sitting council had
agreed to waive the fees.
"You promised us to waive the
fees, we assumed you would,"
Boggio said, adding the project
will move forward no matter what
the council decided. "I can't think
of a reason why we wouldn't be
breaking ground in 45 days."
City Manager Mike Puto
warned the council that should it
waive the fees for this project,
every affordable project would
expect a fee waiver.
Vice Mayor Marilyn Tempest
said agreements made by former
councils should be honored, but
said a standard needs to be estab-
lished regarding waivers for
affordable projects.
Councilman Mike Cinque dis-
agreed, saying "I'm not sure City
Council is obligated to an agree-
ment made three or four years
ago. I can't see the community
absorbing the whole fee, espe-


cially on a project that has
changed so many times."
A motion by Councilman Pete
Worthington to waive half the
fees was tabled until the next reg-
ularly scheduled meeting.
Unanimously approved a
resolution to amend and restate a
memorandum of agreement
between the city and state depart-
ments of Environmental Protection
and Community Affairs concerm-
ing Curry Hammock State Park.
The agreement will now state
that RVs will be able to visit the
park year-round, though several
council members voiced con-
cers with the resolution.
Councilman Mike Cinque said
he preferred not to see govern-
ment competing with free enter-
prise, while Councilman Pete
Worthington said he received an
e-mail from a nearby park owner
saying he was upset he had to
compete with a state park when
he pays $5,000 monthly in prop-
erty taxes.
State parks do not pay proper-
ty taxes.
"This one's a slam dunk; peo-
ple need to stop worrying about
who's making an extra buck,"
Councilman Don Vasil said. Vasil
made the initial proposal to
change the agreement.
Scheduled an executive ses-
sion for this past Thursday, where
City Attorney Jimmy Morales
was to explain a lawsuit recently
filed against the city of Marathon
by Grassy Key Subdivision Inc.
Morales told the Keynoter the
corporation owns 131 small lots
on 47 acres of land in Grassy Key.
"The owner ... wants the right


to build a house on each of those
lots. He claims his rights should
be in place from pre-1982,"
Morales said, adding the owner
purchased the property in 2001.
Morales said the lots were
rezoned in 1986 as sparsely set-
tled, meaning one house per 2
acres, not one per lot. He also
said the owners "don't want to
have to go through" the rate-of-
growth ordinance.
+ Appointed two new Code
Board members, Claude Halioua
and Steve Pearson.
Approved an ordinance for
the adoption of a system by
which the city will codify its ordi-
nances. Residents will be able to
access a link at www.muni
code.com, making it easier to
access city code information.
Unanimously approved a
resolution awarding this cycle's
market-rate and affordable permit
allocations. Three times annually
the city may award up to eight
market-rate allocations and two
affordable-housing allocations.
Approved a resolution
electing to use the uniform
method of collecting non-ad val-
orem special assessments levied.
The resolution deals with collect-
ing taxes for the proposed reno-
vation of the Boot Key Bridge.
The city previously advertised a
notice of intent for the tax.
Approved a resolution
authorizing a change order in the
contract with Globetec
Construction for the Sombrero
Beach Road sewer project.
The change order of $34,251
is for added piping on Sombrero
Beach Boulevard and behind
Kmart that was not allotted for in
the original bid.

Lobster catches down but prices up


Problem isn't
being seen just
in Florida Keys
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Prices are up but poundage is
down three weeks into the lob-
ster season, Florida Keys com-
mercial fishermen say.
"I've definitely seen worse
[catches] but things are not look-
ing super spectacular," said Jeff
Cramer, a 30-year commercial
fishermen in the Middle Keys.
"The volume has not come in
yet."
Doug Gregory, Monroe
County marine extension agent,
said his conversations with fish-
ermen indicate "hit-and-miss"
harvests.
"They say it was pretty strong


right at the beginning" after the
eight-month season opened Aug.
6, he said. "But it's become a
slow start."
"A lot of boats have stopped
making daily trips," said Tom
Matthews, a fishery biologist
with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute in
Marathon.
"This is the time of year when
things should still be going at
full speed," Matthews said.
Official catch reports for the
first month of the season will not
be analyzed for several weeks
yet, but informal talks with some
of 675 licensed trap fishermen in
Monroe County are consistent in
reporting an inconsistent season.
The good news for fishermen
is that higher prices for lobster
being paid at dockside may be at
an all-time high.
"The better prices are keeping


a few businesses intact,"
Matthews said. "They're about
30 percent higher than they were
just a couple seasons ago."
"I've never seen higher
prices," Cramer said.
Some fish houses are paying
around $7 per pound, according
to reports.
"We had all those seasons
with low production, and the
fishermen didn't see these kinds
of prices," Gregory said.
An average legal-sized lob-
ster taken from Keys waters
weighs about one pound,
Matthews said.
Florida accounts for a fairly
small slice of the overall
Caribbean lobster production,
Matthews said, but lower catch-
es everywhere may be driving
the higher prices.
"Brazil opened their season in
May since they're below the
equator, and their catches are
down by about 40 percent," the


biologist said. "But Brazil has
lots of its own unique problems,
so it's difficult to make compar-
isons."


An average
legal-sized
lobster taken
from Keys
waters
weighs about
one pound.


Last week's full moon likely
depressed catches, since lobster
are less likely to roam the ocean
floor when a full moon's light
makes them easier prey for pred-
ators.


"We're seeing this algae
water in the gulf, but we can't
tell if its affecting lobsters,"
Cramer said, describing a large
bloom of blue-green algae. "It's
killed some sponges but we're
still catching healthy lobsters."
Last season closed with a
total statewide harvest of just
under 5 million pounds, accord-
ing to FWRI statistics. That is
considered an average-to-low
season, but the absence of hurri-
canes and a return to relative
normalcy was welcomed by the
fishing fleet.
Commercial trap boats
accounted for 3.2 million pounds
of lobster in the 2006-07 season.
The remainder is split among
commercial divers, recreational
divers and bully-net fishermen.
Lobster is the most important
seafood catch for Monroe
County's commercial fishing
fleet. The season remains open
through March 31.

Free clinic seeks out new patients


Good Health's
services are
extensive
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbunie@keysreporter.com


Dr. Sandy Yankow, founder
of the Good Health Clinic in
Tavemier, hopes more uninsured
Upper Keys residents will take
advantage of free medical care
offered by the clinic.
Yankow said the clinic started
in early 2004 to provide special-
ized care to the Upper Keys'
uninsured population. The low
volume of patients treated
recently prompted the clinic to
broaden its scope beyond spe-
cialized care.
"We found we aren't seeing
enough patients to satisfy me or
our board," Yankow said. "We


received a grant from Baptist-
Health to start doing primary
care."
Since receiving the grant in
March, the clinic has extended
its array of services to include
primary care, free X-rays at
Mariners Hospital, general and
orthopedic surgery, and the serv-
ices of doctors in Miami who
specialize in hematology, oncol-
ogy, back surgery, ophthalmolo-
gy and more. Local doctors asso-
ciated with the clinic include
dermatologists, mental health
experts, pediatricians and an
optometrist.
Despite the extensive list of
services available, Yankow says
the clinic still is not treating
enough patients to justify the
grant.
"It's hard to say why,"
Yankow said. "They just haven't

heard of us."
Yankow said he and the Good
Health Clinic board recently met
to review barriers that might pre-
vent potential Good Health
Clinic patients from seeking
medical attention. They deter-
mined patient income limitations
could be at fault.
To qualify for free medical
care, patients must live in a
household where the income is
less than 200 percent of the fed-
erally defined poverty level.
This means that the combined
income of a two-person house-
hold cannot be more than
$27,384.
Yankow hopes a recent modi-
fication of that restriction will
result in more patients for the
clinic.
"We originally considered a
man and a woman living in the
same household as a two-person.
household," Yankow said. "Now
you must be married to be con-
sidered a two-person house-
hold."
In addition to meeting income
restrictions, patients must be
uninsured residents of Monroe
County who do not qualify for
Medicaid or Medicare, and must
live between mile marker 71 and
the Miami-Dade County line.
Yankow concedes that in
recent years, rising housing costs
may have pushed many people
who would qualify as patients
out of the Keys.
"There should be more,
shouldn't there?" Yankow said
of the number of people who
qualify. "I know that the middle
class is being shoved out of the
Keys."
Still, Yankow says he hopes

EEOC won't sue over

McCoy allegation


Bruno complaint
found to be
valid in June
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


The U.S. Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission noti-
fied Monroe County attorneys
SFriday, that it will not file a sexu-
al-harassment suit against
County Commissioner Sonny
McCoy.
McCoy's former aide, Celeste
SBruno, filed a complaint with the
EEOC last October alleging
McCoy made sexual advances
Sand retaliated against her when
the advances were rebuffed.
Friday, County Attorney
Suzanne Hutton sent an e-mail to
commissioners informing them
the attorney hired by the county
to handle the case received notice
,that the EEOC "has decided that
it will not at this time bring suit
against Monroe County on behalf


of Ms. Bruno."
In June, the EEOC found
Bruno's complaint against
McCoy to be valid.
In a letter the County
Administrator Tom Willi, EEOC
investigator Federico Costales
wrote, "I have determined that
the evidence obtained during the
investigation establishes that
there is reasonable cause to
believe that a violation of the
statute occurred."
The County Commission held
several closed sessions negotiat-
ing a settlement of the charges.
According to Hutton, federal
law allows Bruno 90 days to sue
McCoy on her own.
The federal Civil Rights Act
of 1964 bans "unwelcome sexual
advances, requests for sexual
favors and other verbal or physi-
cal conduct of a sexual nature"
and says such advances could
create "an intimidating, hostile or
offensive work environment."

Campaign signs sprouting up in Key West


Code doesn't
allow them
just anywhere
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


They're big and bright.
Some promise a better future
with change in city govern-
ment. Others say stay the
course and keep making
progress, but one thing is cer-
tain: the pieces of cardboard


can speak loudly, misplaced or
not.
"You've seen one sign,
you've seen them all," said Key
West Assistant City Manager
John Jones, unfazed by another
year of campaign slogans and
bumper magnets.
Jones said it's not unusual
for overzealous campaign sup-
porters to start placing signs in
unauthorized areas, or city
property.
"No notice, sign or any

Police academy

Florida Keys, Community
College is offering a basic law-

Oct. 15, It will run Mondays
through Thursdays from 6:30 to
10:30 p.m. and alternate
Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
for about 45 weeks.
Training will be the state-


mandated curriculum required to
become a certified law enforce-
ment officer in Florida.
Applicants must pass a basic
abilities test and criminal-histo-
ry background check.
For more information and an
application call 809-3200 or
stop by Room P210 in the Public
Safety Building at the college's
main campus on Stock Island.
Deadline to apply is Oct. 1.


advertising matter shall be
posted on any tree or telegraph
or telephone pole erected on the
city streets nor on the walls of
any city building nor on any
property of the city, without the
written approval of the city
manager, except that legal,
election and similar notices
may be posted on bulletin
boards," city code states.
"If we were to cite every-
body, that's all we'd be doing,"
Jones said.
But if signs are placed on
private property, all that's need-
ed is the owner's approval.
Code Officer Bonita Myers
says in a given week, 100 to
200 violations of obstructing
pedestrian traffic are discov-
ered, though most of those are
not from political advertise-
ments but rather things such as
plants, trees, couches and mat-
tresses.
Some residents place some
items on the sidewalk in front
of their homes thinking it's
their property, while others
place garbage on the sidewalk
without properly alerting Waste
Management Inc., Myers said.
Consultant Brooks White's


been involved in local cam-
paigns since 1985. He says
signs can serve a different pur-
pose than simply catching the
eyes of voters driving.
Signs "have two general pur-
poses," he said of those who
allow them on their property.
"One is to make a personal
statement to show what they
believe in: 'Not only am I vot-
ing for this person, but I'm let-
ting the world know it.' "
The other is simply to adver-
tise, he said.
One of White's clients, City
Commissioner Harry Bethel,
who is running for the Utility
Board, has many signs along
Flagler Avenue, or what White
refers to as "Bethel Drive."
Incumbent Mayor Morgan
McPherson's red, rectangular
signs read: "Keep moving for-
ward," while the signs of one of
his opponents, former Mayor
Jimmy Weekley, are blue and
oval with a "sophisticated"
look, said White, his campaign
consultant. In small type, they
read, "Key West comes first."
Key West Shades owner and
City Commission District 4
candidate Barry Gibson has


orange and green signs posted
across town.
Gibson, who's lived in Key
West for 25 years, says acquir-
ing or annexing Higgs Beach
from lessee Monroe County
would be the first issue he
would tackle if elected.
"This park has great poten-
tial for visitors and our fami-
lies," he said. "This is a great
opportunity to involve the com-
munity in the planning and
restoration to ensure a safe
place for everyone to enjoy."
Recently, a supporter placed
one of his signs at Truman
Avenue and Grinnell Street, on
city property.
"Some people ask for extra
signs and I don't know what
happens to them," Gibson said.
"Apparently, it was too close."
Using rebar, the sign was
fastened inside a crevice of the
sidewalk.
"I couldn't pull it out,"
Myers said. The signs "cannot
block down the city right of
way."

Missile site to be gone


It's mitigation
for city taking
out mangroves
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

As the recent rumors of Fidel
Castro's demise echo away, it's
hard to imagine that Smathers
Beach in Key West was at one
time lined with deadly missiles
aimed at our island neighbor
just 90 miles across the Florida
Straits.
There's little left on the 2-
mile-by-2-mile Key West to
remind residents of the chilling
Cuban Missile Crisis and the
Cold War it exemplified, but
there are landmarks.
"The Hawk missiles were
air-defense missiles," Monroe
County historian Tom
Hambright said. "They were
mobile units and the four sites
in Key West were considered
temporary."
Ty Symroski, a. former Key
West planning director and
Monroe County growth-man-
agement chief who also did
planning for the state
Department of Community
Affairs, says he's worried a mit-
igation project under way by the
city may wipe out one of these
historic sites.


"My feeling is it's just like
the East Martello of the 20th
Century," Symroski said, com-
paring it to the Key West Civil
War-era fort. "The Hawk site:
will be as important to future
generations as is Martello. It

represents coastal defense of
the mid-20th Century when we
were on the .brink of nuclear
war."
The city is removing a berm
of one former missile site near


Little Hamaca Park as part of a
$1.5 million mitigation settle-
ment with the state. The state
Department of Environmental
Protection agreed to the project
after the city illegally cleared
protected mangroves near the
Police Department without a
permit.
"They built [the missile site]
right in the middle of the wet-
lands," Assistant City Manager
John Jones said. "You'll still be
able to tell where the missiles
were. It was never intact. If you
wanted to restore, it would cost
a million dollars or more."
There are three other sites,
Jones said.
"One was on Fleming Key,"
according to Hambright. "One
is at the airport, and one is on
Old Boca Chica Road."
Jones said the Boca Chica
site is still intact except for the
missiles themselves.
He said taking out the berm
at Little Hamaca will allow a
natural tidal flow and enhance
the natural environment.
Symroski, who generally
leans toward protecting the
environment, said the historical
significance of the site is worth
sacrificing a tidal flow that has
been disrupted since 1962.
"The city plans on using [the
removed berm] for fill," he said.
"That's like taking down Fort
Zachary Taylor for its bricks."

Eatery proposal tabled

After an hour-long reading of
more than 30 opposing letters
and dozens of community mem-

Southernmost House into a 150-

sinks out of business

Key West Submarines, the
continent's first tourist subma-
rine outfit, has sunk.
An unnamed investor
announced he would withdraw
his million-dollar investment at
a Monday meeting of company
principals, said Adam Van
Tassell, a former business man-
ager.
The company has suspended
operations in the meantime,
holding out hope an angel
investor bails it out. Otherwise
the submarine will be repos-
sessed.

"So I'm looking for a new

seat restaurant.
That will allow applicant the
Craig Co. to revise plans regard-
ing parking, drainage, landscap-
ing, traffic and kitchen layout.
The board is likely to revisit
the proposal at its next meeting,
at 6 p.m. Sept. 20 at Old City
Hall on Greene Street.
"We look at the uses around
us and we see that the dominant
uses are for retail," said attorney
Michael Halpem, who repre-
sents the Ramos family, which
owns the Southernmost House.
"We just can't take it any
more," countered Hugh Morgan,
an attorney who lives next door
to the house on Upper Duval
Street. He has repeatedly pointed
out code violations going on at
the house.
Morgan repeated at the
Planning Board meeting that he
and his wife would sell their
home of 31 years if the restau-
rant is approved.
The entire Morgan family
spoke against the proposal and
was backed by its neighbors, and
their neighbors' neighbors.
Former city Planning
Director Ty Symroski spoke
against the plans, along with for-
mer Monroe County Mayor-
Shirley Freeman, former City
Commissioner Sally Lewis,
Norma Jean Sawyer-Atanda of
the Bahama Conch Community
Land Trust and developer Pritam
Singh.
They said Halpern wasn't
meeting all requirements, that
the neighborhood's character
was in danger and that parking
and traffic would be a disaster.

Kelly Carter Motgg Prfssoa


While it was overwhelmingly
clear the majority of attendees
did not want the proposal to
pass, a few people who spoke
did say they were not opposed.
Southernmost Hotel manager
Matthew Babich was one such
person, as well as Craig Co.'s
Rodney Corriveau and Curtis
Skomp of Coldwell Banker
Schmitt Real Estate.
Among other concerns
addressed was the current park-
ing situation, which was origi-
nally deemed in compliance with
city code. But new information
drew more attention to the issue.
After Director Gail Kenson
and planner Brendon
Cunningharp did a cursory
analysis of new information pre-
sented, they determined the
building's parking is not in com-
pliance.
The fact that Halpem has not
attained needed permits and
transient rental licenses for the
14 units at the Southernmost
House also was discussed.
Halpern said that to purchase
both permits and licenses would
be unaffordable.
He addressed another issue of
a nearby 150-seat restaurant
called the Duval Beach Club.
The Ramoses lived by that
restaurant for a number of years,
he said, and the owner and fami-
ly had a great relationship.
When the Duval Beach Club
was proposed, Halpern said it
sprung up without complications
and there were no aggravating
effects on the neighborhood after
it was completed.
"I didia't remember any peo-
ple who wrote letters objecting
to that restaurant," Halpern said.

Raccoons added to cat roundup


But some upset,
say they're not
the real problem
By JESSICA MACHETTA
jmachetta@keynoter.com


While they can do a number
on trashcans and cat food, some
Lower Keys residents are
adamant that raccoons have
rights, too.
U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
staff has been working to round
up feral cats in the National Key
Deer Refuge since May in efforts
to protect the endangered marsh
rabbits, which have been steadily
declining in numbers for more
than a decade.
Anne Morkill, manager of
Florida Keys National Wildlife
Refuges, reported Wednesday
that 11 cats have been captured
thus far and taken to the local ani-
mal shelter.
A "total of 65 raccoons have
been captured since June,"
Morkill said in an e-mail
Wednesday. Of those, 40 have
been released and 15 euthanized.
This arm of the pilot program
involving the feral-cat roundup
"is set up to reduce raccoons at
half of the total trap locations in
order to compare rabbit
response" where raccoons are
released and where they're not,
Morkill wrote.


In a detailed report, she
explains that "the low number of
cats caught so far either indicates
low distribution within the target-
ed habitats and/or it may reflect
the following factors: A large pro-
portion of traps have been found
closed and empty either due to
human interference or other
wildlife captures."
In addition to the raccoons,
she said, a few opossums, box
turtles and small alligators have
been caught.
The trappers are "doubling
effort" to remove cats and reduce
raccoon numbers, Morkill
reports.
It's those opossums that has
Big Pine biologist Bob Ehrig
concerned.
"In the Lower Keys, we don't
have skunks, squirrels, weasels,"
he said. "Raccoons are our main
seed disbursers. They eat a lot of
berries" and help native plants
and trees propagate.
While raccoons are indige-
nous to the Lower Keys, opos-
sums are not, he said, and
decreasing the number of rac-
coons will increase the number of
opossums.
And yes, raccoons like
garbage and pet food, but he
pointed out their natural diet
includes mostly fruit. Opossums,
on the other hand, are largely car-
nivorous.


"The rabbit evolved with the
raccoon, but it didn't evolve with
the opossum, so there's potential
problems with that," Ehrig said.
Lee Ann Mathews, who works
at the Big Pine animal, shelter,
said of the raccoon roundup, "I'm
very unhappy. It's sad about the
raccoons, I don't get it."
Mathews is optimistic about
the cats, though. Of the 11
brought in, she said, four were
claimed by their owners.


However, one was diagnosed
with feline leukemia and had to
be euthanized and one of three
very young kittens died. The
other two kittens have been
adopted and the rest of the cats
are in the outside shelter.
She said most of the cats
brought in had already been
altered through a trap-neuter-
release program, which she said
is encouraging.

Group moves

Clients of the Monroe
Association of Retarded Citizens
no longer need to duck cement
chunks from a crumbling ceiling.
They moved Monday from
the old Harris School on
Southard Street in Key West into
newly remodeled classrooms at
the May Sands School at 1400
United St.
"We no longer have to flush
the toilets with buckets because
of poor water pressure," MARC
Executive Director Diana
Flenard said. "We won't have all
our little pet cockroaches and ter--
mites."
The new digs have handi-
capped-accessible bathrooms,
showers in the special-needs
classroom and an adequately
sized nurse's office where ill
clients can lie down in air condi-
tioning.

Monroe Association of Retarded Citizens Plant Store Manager
Mike Roth is all smiles now that the group, known as the MARC
House, has moved from shoddy conditions at the old Harris
School in Key West to new digs at the May Sands School.


moving the facility, which serves
80-plus clients, for more than
two years.
Four years ago, the Monroe
County School Board put the his-
toric Harris School, which
housed MARC for decades, up
for sale. Though a sale never hap-
pened, tenants of the structure
were moved out. MARC is the
last to go.
"Our grand opening is Sept.
20," Flenard said. "We're still
working on converting the old
gym [at the new location] into
administrative offices and I don't
believe that will be done by
then."
Probably the most well-
known aspect of MARC is its
plant store, where clients grow
and pot tropical foliage. The rev-
enue helps keep things running.
"Our big plant sale is going on
this weekend," MARC spokes-
man Gordon Ross said. "The
plant store will move to the new
location on Sept.7."
Remodeling the new facility
and moving has not been cheap,
according to Flenard.
"We did not want to stop the


completion," she said, "so we've
had to borrow close to $200,000.
We're asking the community to
help us finish this project."
A pig roast Sunday at
Boondocks, on Ramrod Key is
aimed at raising some of that
money, she said. The event runs
from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
Overall, the project will cost
just about $600,000, Flenard said.
Negotiating a 20-year lease
was one of the toughest parts of
the move, she said. The School
District was hesitant to go longer
than five years, but Flenard said
continuity in a program like
MARC is the secret of its success.
"Now we have that 20-year
lease," she said, adding that
MARC now will provide an
anchor at May Sands where other
nonprofits such as the United
Way and the Special Olympics
are also housed.
"It's been a long hard road,
and we're excited to see it finally
come to fruition," Flenard said.
"The new facility is beautiful. It's
built for the clients with what we
need and what we wanted."

30% rule goes to commission


Several units
about to lose
deed restrictions
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The. Key West City
Commission, set to meet
Wednesday, can float or sink an
initiative that would mandate
developers designate 30 percent
of redevelopment projects greater
than four units as affordable
housing.
Under the proposed ordi-
nance, applicants for such proj-
ects would have the opportunity
to waive that requirement in
exchange for a fee of $200,000
per unit that would go to the city
affordable-housing trust fund.
The money would have to be paid
prior to building permits being
issued.
A third option is also available
to developers: construct or pie-
serve the required 30 percent of
affordable housing at a location
separate from the site first pro-
posed for the market-rate units.
Monroe County and Marathon
already have similar laws on the
books.
The Key West City
Commission has already OK'd a
similar ordinance regarding new
development, but many residents
and members of the Key West
Community Housing Committee
say new development is uncom-
mon when it comes to recent
projects, and that most construc-
tion is redevelopment.
The committee conceived the
proposal at its July 9 meeting and
brought it before an agreeable
Planning Board.
Firefighter Omar Garcia, soon
to be chairman of the committee,
is a strong supporter of the initia-
tive.


numbers Wednesday. The com-
mission meeting is at 6 p.m. at
Old City Hall.
"People say that things aren't
getting accomplished," he said.
"This is where it has to start,"
He praised City Manager Jim
Scholl for recently involving the
Housing Committee with the
decision-making of the city
Development Review Committee.
"Keep it as grassroots as pos-
sible," Garcia said. "I feel that we
represent the community and the
people. And with me being a fire-
man, I think I represent the blue-
collar community."


Outgoing Chairman Richard
Grusin has declared he's ready to
pass the position to Garcia, who
coined the title "Saving a 1,000
Families in 1,000 days," an effort
of the Alliance for Community
Housing to preserve or create
1,000 low-income units not
likely under state growth-man-
agement rules.
"We're addressing the peo-
ple," he said. "That's why I'm
behind this."
Like many advocates behind
the issue, Garcia promotes
preservation.
"Government is always reac-
tive," he said. "We're trying to be
proactive."
.On July 16, a list was posted
on the city's Web site, www.key
westcity.com, revealing a list
of deed-restricted affordable
units facing expiration, thus risk-
ing a hike up to market rates.
The committee and alliance
are focused on that list like treas-
ure to protect. Too many afford-
able units have been snatched
from underneath their noses and
sold as market rate, they say.
Some units on the list include
400 Truman Ave., 507 South St.,
623 Duval St. and 508 Southard St.
Garcia expressed concern
over potential developers' resist-
ance to the 30 percent proposal
and hopes supporters show up in

Google to unveil 'gPhone'?


Operating system
would, upgrade
existing devices
McClatchy Tribune


It has been a long, dry summer
for technology bloggers even
those based far from California.
Since Apple's release of the
iPhone on June 29, there has been
precious little gadget news worth
googling. Into the breach stepped
Google itself, with its own hot
story: not the iPhone but the
"gPhone."
According to bloggers with
some credibility, Google is devel-
oping mobile software around a
Linux-based OS that could be
unveiled in some form after
Labor Day.
"From .what we've heard
Google isn't necessarily working
on hardware of its own, but is
definitely working ... to put the
gPhone OS on upcoming
devices," Engadget wrote
Tuesday.
Google issued a statement
saying it would not comment on
rumors. However, in May, Chief


I ITECHNOLOG


Executive Eric Schmidt told a
group of reporters having lunch
at the company's headquarters
that Google was indeed develop-
ing all kinds of mobile phone
software.
"We are working to make the
mobile stack more powerful
through a lot of initiatives,"
Schmidt said. "We have a lot of
software that is getting added to


phones and platforms."
Kevin Burden, senior manager
for mobile devices at Telephia, a
research firm, said a Google-
branded phone could be a winner
if consumers believed it was the
best way to surf the Internet.
"They should get a lot of
attention," he said.
So far Google has had mixed
success integrating its software
into existing phones.

Boot Key Bivouac
draws widespread
sponsor support
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

You might not know how to
say it, but you will definitely
want to be there Oct. 7 for the
inaugural Boot Key Bivouac-at
the Marathon Community Park.
Event organizers
Christopher Boyle and Charlie
Miller envisioned a casual
gathering in honor of American
soldiers past and present, but
the idea has quickly ballooned
into what will be a daylong cel-
ebration.
"It was something to make
the military people more famil-
iar with what we're doing,"
Boyle said of the decision to
use bivouac, a military term, in
the event's name. "Everybody
asks me that and they ask me
how to say it."
Boyle says a bivouac is an
informal encampment, which is
pretty much what the
Community Park will turn into
Oct. 7.


Food and drinks will be
available all day while local
acts such as Howard Livingston
and Mile Marker 24 Band,
Florida Straits Band and John
Bartus entertain the crowd.
"It's going to be a great day
and a great event. It certainly is
for a great cause," said Bartus,
a former Marathon mayor.
The Marathon City Council
even voted unanimously at
Tuesday's regular meeting to
waive the fee for the use of the
park and permit the sale of
alcohol.
All proceeds from the event
will benefit the Disabled
American Veterans, Veterans of
Foreign Wars, American
Legion, Veterans Council of
Monroe County and the
Marathon High School scholar-
ship fund. The four local
groups will help to oversee and
distribute the proceeds.
Working through these non-
profit organizations, Boyle says
he and Miller have been able to
enlist the support of major cor-
porate sponsors such as Publix,

Donations requested for event

Winn-Dixie, Sysco, Coca-Cola,
Pepsi, Dade Paper and many
others.
Boyle said the Greater
Marathon Chamber of
Commerce has "adopted" the
event.
"The chamber supports our
troops and we wanted to show
our appreciation by helping
[Boyle] throw the event,"
chamber Executive Director
Daniel Samess said. "As it
grows we'll be able to get more
out-of-town people to come
check it out."
Boyle said he and Miller
have been "beaming with
pride" at how receptive every-
one in Marathon has been to the
idea.
"We expect this to be an
annual event. I can see where it
would be bigger than the
seafood festival in a couple
years, given what we're seeing
for support," he said.
Boyle said plenty of goods
and services have been donated
so far, but donations are still
needed. An account has been
set up at First State Bank in the
name of Boot Key Bivouac
where residents can contribute.

tact Boyle at (305) 318-9725 or

Hello, Marathon,
Although you may not know me personally yet, I hope that will change in the weeks and months to come. In MarchJ
assumed chairmanship of the board of directors of Dolphin Research Center at Grassy Key, and have been traveling from
Boston to Florida each month since then for board meetings.
As a result, I have stayed in your hotels, rented cars and explored your town and its environs, enjoyed your restaurants and
shopped in your stores. Being a friendly sort of fellow with a real interest in people, I tend to introduce myself to those of
you I meet.
When I do, I make certain I explain my new role at DRC and what I hope to do there. More often than not, though, I'm
met with the same response: You're familiar with Dolphin Research Center, but have not visited in a long time. That's
something I want to change, and with your help I know we can.
As the largest tourist attraction in the Middle Keys, DRC attracts visitors from across the United States and from around
the world. In the past 12 months alone, American journalists as well as those from Canada, Germany, England, Japan and
numerous other countries have visited to learn all about our activities and stories about Dolphin Research Center have
appeared in newspapers and magazines, and on television programs and websites worldwide. As a result, we entertained
and educated over 50,000 visitors from across the United States and from more than a dozen different countries last year.
Why should this interest you? For one very good reason, Those 50,000 visitors who came to Dolphin Research Center last
year are a significant part of what keeps Marathon's economy robust and vital. Each visitor who came to play or splash
with the dolphins, learn about manatees and sea lions, take part in interactive workshops or observe research on marine li'e
brought dollars into Marathon.
Now that Marathon is an integral part of my life, too, I can say with great pride-tiat they stayed in our hotels, ate in
restaurants, rented cars, used public transportation, shopped our retail stores and purchased souvenirs and necessities. In
very real terms, they keep Marathon's economy healthy.
I'd like to continue to see this area's economy remain healthy, and I'd like you to partner with me.
How?
* Visit us at Dolphin Research Center
* Learn about the marine life all around us, and how we're working to ensure that it remains protected for a long,
long time
Interact with the dolphins
Learn about conservation and the environment
Watch our sea-life shows and educational presentations
Meet our new dolphin babies
To make it possible for you to do so, I have asked the board of directors and DRC's administration to designate September
"Marathon Resident Awareness Month." From September 1 to September 30, all bona fide residents of Marathon will be
admitted to Dolphin Research Center for only $3 (a savings of $16.50 for adults, $12.50 for seniors and $10.50 for
children). Ask about a chance to swim with the dolphins.
Why am I doing this? Simply because I believe that if you come to know us better you can help us spread the word and
attract others to DRC-and in turn to Marathon. In your daily work at the hospital, in city government, at a local residence
or hotel, you come in contact with people every day, and all of these people have friends and family that live elsewhere.
By understanding what Dolphin Research Center does and has to offer, you can help us reach out and bring visitors to
Marathon-and for every visitor to our area, our economy is enriched.
Won't you partner with me? Please, call Dolphin Research Center today and see how you can obtain these tickets for you
and your family and friends. Or, come by DRC with proof of residency in September and see what you've been missing!
Just tell them Peter Lappin sent you.


See you in September at DRC!
Peter Lappin
Chairman of the Board

Soccer Eagles start strong

scores five
at Colonial

The soccer offense at Island
Christian School this fall aims
for steady and relentless rather
than fast and flashy.
"We have to control the ball
and grind it out," returning head
coach Robert Lucas said,
"because we don't have the
speed to get by too many
people."
The strategy worked just fine
in Tuesday's season opener, a
5-0 shutout win at Colonial
Christian.
Aaron Izaguirre scored three
goals for the Eagles.
"Five goals may be the most
we get in a game all year. We're
not fast enough to score a lot,"
Lucas said.
The opponent was "the best
Colonial team I've seen ,in 13
years," he noted. "It was a good

Dolphins outshoot


Conchs Tuesday


Hegland leads
all with a 36
over nine holes
By RYAN McCARTHY

The Marathon High School
golf team defeated Key West
*High School Tuesday at
Sombrero. Country Club in
Marathon in what was each
team's opening match.
Marathon head coach Dean'
Carrigan said if it wasn't for
the 18th hole, the Dolphins
would have won handily.
"We had them beat, our
guys kind of chopped up 18 a
bit and made it closer," he said.
Marathon -- senior Jay-


Hegland shot the low round of
the match with a 36, par for the
back nine at the country club.
Carrigan said Hegland played
solid but far from his best golf.
The Conchs' low player was
junior Blake Oropeza with a
43. Following Oropeza were
freshman Jack Lockwood, 45;
junior Casey Dion, 47; and jun-
ior Marco Martinez, 53.
Marathon's other scores:
junior Josh Gratton, 44; senior
Mike Kuck, 47; and senior
George Hoffman, 57.
Carrigan said he was espe-
cially proud of Gratton, who
has made significant strides in
his game from last season.

Trainer's done

Keynoter Contributor


"It might be a fracture," Key
-West High School athletic
trainer Tim Donald said
Wednesday afternoon as he
examined the young football
player's, black-and-blue left
hand before applying ice to it.
Donald then hooked the
hand, which belonged to soph-
omore lineman Cory Rogers
and was injured in the Conchs'
preseason game, to an electric
stimulation machine. He told
Rogers he would arrange a
doctor's appointment.

While the machine did. its
job, other athletes filtered into
the training room to have
ankles and wrists taped, under-
go treatment or just have the
trainer assuage their worries.
"I call this the happy hour
- we get tons of kids in here,"
Donald, beginning his second
year at the school, said with a
laugh.

space that had a red and white
motif and was furnished with
black-cushioned tables, sta-
tionary bikes, dumbbells, med-
icine balls, a refrigerator, an
ice machineand a whirlpool.
Cabinets held tape and
wound-care supplies. A TV
was tuned to ESPN. Charts and
drawings, including one
labeled "Understanding the
Shoulder and Elbow," lined the
walls. A pamphlet above a
computer was titled,
"Minimizing the Risk of
Injuries in High School
Athletes."
Volleyball player Stephanie
Garmany came in and curled
up on a table as Donald knead-
ed her troublesome shoulder.
"He's done wonders for
me," she said. "My shoulder
has improved so much because
of the exercises he has given
me."
Donald has been a perfect
fit for the Conchs, who a
decade ago didn't have a train-
er. "Every coach has good
things to say about him,"
Athletic Director Peter Fraga
said. "He's like a teacher with
the kids."
The trainer's job involves
long hours. He attends home
games and travels with most of
the Conch teams on road trips.
Through it all, he never loses
his pleasant demeanor.
"The satisfaction I get,"
Donald said,' "is being able to


assist these kids from the time
they get injured and through
their recovery until they get
back on the field. But if I don't
feel comfortable with them
playing or practicing, they
won't."
A native of Media, Pa., he
graduated with a degree in
health and physical education
from West Chester University.
He worked in Delaware- at a
physical-therapy clinic and
served as trainer at the local
high school before moving to
Key West in 1996.
He spent 10 years in the out-
patient physical therapy
department at Lower Keys
Medical Center and earned an
associate degree in marine
technology from Florida Keys
Community College. "I repair
boats on the side," he said.
He is married to Stacy
Czerwinski, a physical thera-
pist and runner. She has com-
peted in the Boston Marathon
twice; he ran a half-marathon
in Tennessee.
After most of the athletes
had left the room Wednesday
to go out to practice, Donald
returned his attention to
Rogers, who told him how
badly he wanted to play Friday
night against Marathon.
"If that's broken, we won't
be playing," Donald said.
Rogers saw a doctor on
Thursday. The injury turned
out to be a bad bruise that, with
the trainer's help, would disap-
pear soon.


These local companies would like to say thanks to
their hardworking employees. Happy Labor Day to all.

Team then falls
in five games
to Miami squad
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Streamers decorated the
gym. Music pulsated. A loud
crowd had gathered. A new era
in Key West High School vol-
leyball was about to begin.
"We are so ready," Stephanie
Garmany said as she and her
Conch teammates took the court
for their regular-season opener
Tuesday afternoon under new
coach Jessy Hulme.
Marathon, though, was also
ready. Before two hours had
elapsed, the visiting Dolphins,
who showed more talent and
less indecision, were celebrating
a 25-19, 25-11, 25-19 victory.
The first game unfolded amid
a rash of errors by both teams.
The Conchs looked con-
fused, letting balls drop for easy
Dolphin points. Still, Key West
fought back from a 14-9 deficit
to a 17-17 tie, a surge fueled by


a kill shot from Jacque Garcia, a
tap-point from Victoria Brisson
and a service ace by Tyler Arias.
The surge ended abruptly.
Marathon took control and ran
off the game's final five points.
With Sarah Melia serving a
flurry of aces to start the second
game, the Dolphins cruised to
an 8-0 lead. On the Conchs'
bench, Hulme clasped both
hands to her hair, which, like the
gym, was festooned in red and
white.
The Conchs relied on senior
Danielle Hills, who scored three
points, but the Dolphins had
several offensive threats, includ-
ing senior Alexis Culver, whose
powerful windmill kill made the
score 13-5.
Melia ended the game the
way she had started it two
more aces made the final score
25-11.
The third game was tied 17-
17 after a block by Key West
freshman Jessica Bodmer. But
the serving of sophomore
Ashley Hooper and the all-
around play of Culver, sopho-
more Shelby Kuck and fresh-
man Kelly Struyf carried the
Dolphins down the stretch.
"We have some great ath-
letes, the most athletes I've had
in five years," Marathon coach
Kevin Freeman said afterward.
"We played incredibly in the
second game but lacked
momentum in the first and third
games. Key West was better
than they were when we played
them [in a preseason game]."
As Hulme watched her disap-

pointed players dismantle and
stow away the net, she had
mixed emotions. "We played
with heart and were really
intense," she said. "I was glad to
see that. And the fans were
amazing."
She wasn't glad about what
she had seen late in the match
from a team she has put through
intense conditioning drills. "We
shouldn't be missing serves in
the third game," she said. "It
drives me nuts."
Marathon followed up the
solid performance against the
Conchs with a five-game loss
against a much-improved
Miami Christian team Thursday.
The Dolphins traded the first
four games with Miami, 25-13,
20-25, 25-18, 14-25, before
dropping the decisive fifth game
13-15.
Freeman said Marathon was
up 9-4 in the final game before
several missed serves allowed
their district rivals to close the
gap.
"Our serving let us down, we
missed serves in crucial times,"
Freeman said.
Culver and Jessica Brier each
had eight kills and .one block,
while sophomore Shelby Kuck
added eight aces and eight kills
of her own.
"It was a tough one to lose
because we were so close in that
fifth game, but we'll learn from
it and move on," Freeman said.
Marathon's next game is
away at 5 p.m. on Sept. 6
against Westminster Christian.

Lady Eagles start crisp


Volleyball
team led by
Glaze's 10 aces
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer,
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Island Christian School's
volleyball Lady Eagles rolled
to a pair of match 'wins
Tuesday, starting the new sea-
son on a near-flawless note.
"They did well," said coach
Sheryl Yost, returning after two
years away from the ICS side-
line. "It should be a great sea-
son. The kids' attitudes are
amazing."
The Lady Eagles staggered
Brito Private, 25-8, 25-10, 25-
1 in the first of a two-match
doubleheader, then did it again
in the closer, 25-5, 25-9, 25-8.
"Our veterans worked in


great with the younger kids,"
Yost said. "It was cool to see."
Jenny Glaze, a sophomore
new to ICS, made her Eagle
debut by nailing 10 serving
aces over the two matches.
Veterans such as seniors
Danielle Price and Carly
Pinder also served well, but
Yost was particularly pleased
to see contributions from
younger players like freshmen
Brittany Messinger and
Melanie Meroni, eighth-grader
Brittani Dudley and seventh-
grade sisters Jessie and Mandy
Ludwith.
Veteran Jennifer Subic and
Glaze worked the first match
as outside hitters. With only a
week of practice before the
first match, Yost is still work-
ing out her rotation.
Brito had a young squad,
Yost said, so a trip to Calusa


Players hit home field


Prep for a Thursday double-
header "will be more of a test."
Since the Eagles expected
home sports events to be dis-
rupted by new construction this
fall, Island Christian's sched-
ule consists of seven road trips
for match doubleheaders and
one "home" match, a Sept. 21
event at Coral Shores against
rival Princeton Christian.

way to start the season."
Phillip Izaguirre moved into
the net for his first-ever appear-
ance as goalie and preserved the
shutout with seven saves.
Island Christian returns scor-
ing leaders Aaron Izaguirre and
Matthew Izaguirre along with
veterans including Charlie
Marmitt, Jordan Izaguirre,
Daniel Pratt, Nathan Overfield
and Joel Rhash.
Tim Globus and Jon Cruciger
also have stepped into the start-
ing lineup, with defenders Andy
Hertel and Chris Richmond
making a bid for regular spots.
Globus scored the season's
first goal on a pass from
Marmitt.
Pratt capped the match by
breaking out of a mob in front of
the Patriot net for a goal Lucas
described as "very opportunis-
tic."
"We have the ability to beat
you, just not the speed by run by
you," the coach said. "If we run
into a team that controls the ball
better than we do, it could be
trouble."
Island Christian originally
scheduled all its matches on the
road this year since it expected a
new gymnasium to be under


construction on the sports field
by now.
But with building approvals
delayed, Lucas was able to
switch six of the 12 matches
back to the Islamorada campus.
The next four matches all will
be at home: St. Brendan (Sept.
6), Princeton Christian (Sept.
11); Brito Private (Sept. 14); and
Calusa Prep (Sept. 18). All start
at 4 p.m.

He said Gratton made a num-
ber of clutch shots including a
nice up and down from the
greenside bunker at the 12th
hole.
"For [Gratton], first match of
the year, to be the second best
score was good for him,"
Carrigan said. "I wouldn't be
surprised if he breaks 40 in a
match."
Carrigan' said Kuck told him
his putting was the only thing
keeping him from shooting 55.
The team has been working
extensively on putting in prac-
tice.
Key West head coach Nora
Laubenstein said Oropeza, Dion
and Lockwood did well off the
tee and with their approaches,
but struggled on the greens.
"As a team, our weakness
was putting," she said.


Laubenstein said with three
players new to competitive golf,
the match was "a little nerve-
racking for everyone."
"I'm proud of all the new
boys, I know we're going to
keep getting better," she said.
"I'm looking forward to contin-
uing the season and playing
Marathon again."
Tuesday's match was the first
of four the two teams will play
this year. Two of those will be
quad-meets along with Ransom
Everglades and perennial district
power Gulliver Prep.
Carrigan said he told the team
it will need to play better to win
in the future.
"Awin is a win because we
didn't beat Key West in four or
five years, but it wasn't our best
performance," he said.
Marathon next plays at Belen
Sept. 5, while Key West's next
match will be at home against
Port Charlotte Sept. 7.

lose opener


And JV team
cancels match-
Keynoter Staff

A shortage of players forced
cancellation of Thursday's sched-
uled opener for the Coral Shores
junior-varsity football team.
Several younger players have
earned spots as varsity regulars,
which left the football roster too
thin to field a full JV team against
Florida Christian this week,
Hurricane athletic director Rich
Russell said.
The JV has a scheduled game
Sept. 13 against Marathon High
School's JV. A decision on that
game is pending, Russell said.
In varsity action, Coral
Shores' volleyball Lady
Hurricanes were stopped by
Gulliver Prep in Thursday's regu-
lar-season opener, 25-16, 25-14,
25-23.
Details from the match in
Miami were not available at press


time. Gulliver perennially is an
early favorite for the District 16-
3A title.
The Lady Canes play two
matches at home this week, at 4
p.m. Thursday against Maritime
and Science Technology
Academy (varsity only), and 5:30
p.m. Friday against Ransom
Everglades (JV at 4 p.m.).
Also at Coral Shores:
The Hurricane swim teams
have a Tuesday home meet
against Archbishop Carroll on the
schedule, but that meet had not
been confirmed earlier this week.
The aqua Canes host
Westminster Christian at 4 p.m.

This is my last weekly col-
umn for L'Attitudes, as I will be
freelancing for the Keynoter and
Keys Sunday from now on.
To those of you who've
expressed an appreciation for my
weekly ramblings, you can
always find a good dose of
humor, sarcasm, photos and
antics on my blog at http://

I'm staying in the Keys and
will continue being part of the
arts and entertainment scene -
you're not getting rid of me
that easy.
That said, I hope my news-
room cohorts will keep serving
up a big ol' cup of crazy in my
honor after I'm gone, whether it
be talking to their computers,
bringing in talking Quagmire
pens to drive everyone else
bonkers, showing up to work
with random weekend-related
injuries, or breaking the silence

recommended "HTML for

I may even see if Sloan
Bashinsky will make me an
honorary Key West pirate if he
wins in the upcoming city may-
oral .election.
I wonder if he's got some-
thing special planned for Sept.
19, national Talk Like a Pirate
Day.
What it comes down to is
that you just never know where
I might pop up or what I might
be doing. Although my family
members aren't always so
pleasantly surprised, I like
being spontaneous.
("Unpredictable" works too, but
doesn't sound quite as good.)
Spontaneity, costumery and
.general silliness is easy to come
by now that Fantasy Fest is
right around the corer, evi-
denced by this week's cross-
word puzzle, which was created
by Robert the Doll.
Seriously though, one of my
former coworkers once told me
when you're on the brink of a
life-changing decision, "If you
just let yourself fall, the world


will catch you. It always does."
And she's right.
Every smart thing I've been
told at various jobs from
boxing medical textbooks on
the third shift at a plant to this,
being the middleman for the
great information exchange in
the Keys I've taken with me.
Granted, I've gleaned a little
bit more profundity while inter-
viewing cast members from
"Gilligan's Island" and Arlo
Guthrie for L'Attitudes than
sending "Caring for Patients
with Severed Limbs in the ER"

Linn, Mo., to a college in

Latin beat hot on a


Saturday morning


And annual fest
events heating
up for fall
The Westin resort at the
Key West Harbor was
the site last Saturday of
an early morning taping to
promote Gloria Estefan's
upcoming video and CD "90
Millas" "90 miles" in
English, the distance between
Havana and Key West.
The day was warm, merci-
fully overcast with a threat of
sprinkles, but no one twitching
to the salsa rhythm in the
steamy morning heat com-
plained. Estefan herself, and
Emilio, wearing black, looked
as cool as a winter evening.
The cantadora was effusive,-
chatting with bystanders and
kicking into lyrics effortlessly
when her cue came up.
The taping was.in espafiol
and the instructions to the
crowd were in Spanish and
not just Spanish, but Cuban
Spanish, which is muy rapido.
Members of the Key West
Comparsa group became part
of her backdrop and the local
band Caribe supplied la
music.
A sailboat in the back-
ground enhanced the harbor
ambience. Spectator Karen
Bowers commented, "An
astute observer might notice
that although it is under full
sail, it's not moving." Hmm,

Estefan's
Key West
perform-
ance is set
to air on
Univision's
'Despierta

King and queen
They are off and fundrais-
ing! The annual extravaganza
of creative funding competi-
tion commenced last Friday as
the candidates for king and
queen of Fantasy Fest
launched their campaigns for
sovereignty.
Five generously energetic
people performed for a yard
full supporters at the
Southernmost House on the
shores of the Atlantic Ocean.
Mary Lou Hoover, Dejah
Urbanovitch, and "Miss
Southernmostgay.com" com-
pete for queen; Johnathon
"JHo" Hoenscheidt and
Chris Lippa battle it out for
king.
Costuming was well under
way with the.candidates and
their teams and among the
crowd, where incredibly tall
drag queens in painfully high
platform shoes seemed to pre-
fer sparkly blue long, long,
long dresses.

Fest poster
Rebecca Burg's accom-
plished flight of whimsy is this
year's choice for the Fantasy
Fest poster.
Burg is a sailor and an artist
who regularly wins prizes at
Fantasy Fest costume competi-
tions with her costume
designs.
Her home and gallery are
aboard her classicly restored
1978 Bayfield cutter sailboat,
Angel, which she frequently
singlehands to Caribbean and
Mexican ports. The vivid spec-
trum of nature and the playful
world of imagination are the
subjects of her paintings.

Pasta donates art
for local cleanup


International Coastal
Cleanup Day is Sept. 15, and
Keynoter columnist and radio
and TV host Cal Sutphin,
Reporter columnist Doug
Jeffrey, and Martin Alsobrooks,
a retired U.S. army veteran, are
picking up cigarette butts
throughout the Keys.
"The Florida Keys are a
sanctuary and it is disgusting to
watch people at red lights flick
a lit cigarette out of their car
without even an afterthought"
Sutphin said.
The three are looking for
sponsors to donate either set
amounts or pledge, say, a
penny per butt picked up. To
find out more, send an e-mail
to reelinthekeys@comcast.net.
Artist Pasta Pantaleo from
the Keys to Life studio in the
Upper Keys is donating an
original piece to the person
who guesses closest to the
number of cigarette butts
picked up by the volunteers.
Officer David Dipre with
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission


reminds smokers that the fine
for littering is as high as $105
and that it's a felony to litter a
lit cigarette during the dry sea-
son due to potential wildfires in
Florida.
Proceeds from the cleanup
benefit the Monroe Youth
Challenge, the Mia Sutphin
Memorial Foundation and
Forgotten Soldiers Outreach
Inc.

It As a Visual Artist" at Voltaire

West, Sunday at 3 p.m.

great tips on 'Makin' It' in the
arts and living life creatively,"
Benson said.
The book is available at

wine and signing event that
includes the gecko sculptures
she's known for in the Keys, Art
Slut tees a quick chat with Island
107.1.
ArtSlut was a Key West
gallery display that sold 10,000
tees and blossomed to bring art
to the masses and promote self-
expression through information,
entertainment and inspiration
delivered in the silly, sassy voice
of the author's alter ego, ArtSlut
Annie, with creative advice for
crafty questions on art, art-busi-
ness and the art of love.
This book kicks off Benson's
new series the ArtSlut's Easy
Guides because "everybody
does something creative and
everybody loves an ArtSlut,"
Benson said, "except people
who hate art or aren't funny!"
She wrote the book "to over-
come stereotypes like 'starving
artist' and 'can't draw a straight
line'."
"It stinks that so many people
are intimidated by art," she said.
"Art should make people feel
good, and that doesn't mean
make 'happy art' duh! It
means try and be happy. Even if
you don't succeed, it's a noble
goal and makes you more fun to
be with!"
