The Florida Legislature

in property taxes cut at the local
level.
Now, however, reality has set
in, and a special session next
week is aimed a paring back the

statewide economic slowdown.
Starting Sept. 18, legislators

.. the intent of rolling the $71 bil-

to match projected revenues,
which could come in some $1.1
billion lower than originally
expected.

budget will be difficult, but

It appears the municipalities
under contract with the Middle
Keys Community Land Trust are
less than thrilled with the results
the group has produced.
At a special meeting last
week to review city contracts,
Marathon City Manager Mike
Puto recommended to the City
Council that the city's contract
with the Land Trust not be
renewed. It had a one-year deal
with the city for $50,000.
Puto said the Land Trust "has
not been productive. It is clear
the resources of the trust are
stressed."
Reached for comment Tues-
day, Land Trust Administrator
Rick Casey said he was unaware
of the decision.
"This is the first I've head of
that. I'm disappointed," he said,
adding he had spoken with Puto
recently.
Casey said the Land Trust
handles "anything to 'do with
affordable housing as directed
by the city."
"The city has approximately
60 houses they've deed restrict-
ed as affordable housing," Casey
explained. "One of the things no


local government had done
effectively is monitor are those
restrictions being complied
with? That was the primary pur-
pose among several we most
actively perform."
Marathon Planning Director
Fred Gross said the city was
looking for someone to handle
affordable housing issues better
than the city could, but the Land
Trust "didn't live up to the
expectations we had."
"There are a variety of things
they are supposed to do, which
in my estimation they don't do,"
Gross said. "I honestly don't
think we get $50,000 worth of
work out of them. I don't think
we get $5,000. We could do
away with the contract and no
one would notice."
Gross said the city lost out on
possible grant funding for the
104th Street affordable housing
project after the Land Trust
"wrote the papers wrong."
Gross said while under con-
tract with the city, the Land Trust
has built "maybe five" afford-
able homes, three of which it
purchased the land for with the
city's permission.
The Land Trust also has a


three-year contract with the vil-
lage of. Islamorada for $50,000
per year. That contract expires
Sept. 30, 2008.
Village Manager Gary Word
said the Land Trust's contract
with them is to "identify proper-
ties that might be used for
affordable housing, and once
[they are identified] to design
them, permit them and get them
constructed."
The Land Trust is overseeing
construction of the Woods
Comer affordable housing proj-
ect in Islamorada. Word said the
project has been behind sched-
ule, but is now progressing.
He said while there has been
"an erosion of support" for the
Land Trust at the council level, it
would be .premature to say
whether its contract will be
renewed.
"There's been some frustra-
tion. I guess my concern with
this is alternatively, who else
would do this?" Word said.
"We're not capable with our
existing staff to handle afford-
able housing, so I'm not sure this
isn't our best option. Depending
on how things go with Woods
Comer and other projects, we'll
determine whether to move for-
ward with them."

Vasil: City needs 190 more slips


But parking
appears to be
stumbling block
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon City Councilman
Don Vasil says he believes Boot
Key Harbor will be the future of
the city.
Toward that end, Deputy City
Manager C.J. Geotis outlined to
council at its Aug. 28 meeting
plans to add 190 boat slips to the


harbor, capable of accommodat-
ing up to 55- and 60-foot yachts,
as well as a dozen retail stores.
Vasil said the city Marina
Master Plan "hasn't given us
much more than what we had"
and that "we have to do whatever
it takes to bring visitors to spend
money to Marathon."
"Marathon needs to be look-
ing down the road. When Cuba
opens up, this is going to be the
best place to provision your
boat," he said.
Preliminary plans suggest


House, Senate differ


SESSION / From I

the governor's office, and we are
united in our efforts to handle the
state's finances in a fiscally
sound manner. We will have a
balanced budget that meets the
needs of our state."
The House and Senate are
approaching the cuts somewhat
differently, said Jill Chamberlin,
spokeswoman for House Speaker
Marco Rubio. While the Senate is
looking at across-the-board cuts,
she said the House is looking at
prioritized cuts.
Last week, House councils
heard reports from state agencies
asked to roll back as much as 10
percent of their budgets.
"No one actually expected
that," Chamberlin said, adding
that an estimated rollback of 4
percent would cut $1 billion out
of state spending.
"Fortunately, we commence
this budget-cutting responsibility
with agreement that Florida must
continue to budget prudently and
act responsibly in the face of
declining revenue collections,"
Rubio said in a statement
released last week. "We will be
mindful of the need to serve citi-
zens while making necessary
reductions in state spending."
The session is organized
around regular committee meet-
ings organized for the second
week in September. The timing
may spur some legislators to add
the sunsetting no-fault auto insur-
ance law to the agenda.
On Oct. 1, the law requiring
vehicle owners to carry a mini-
mum $10,000 of personal injury
protection expires.


Tavemier insurance agent Bob
Regan said he hasn't heard yet
whether the so-called PIP would
be on tap in Tallahassee.
"I believe wholeheartedly in it,"
Regan said of the coverage. "The
pros far outweigh the cons. It's a
situation of pay me now or pay me
later. If you did away with PIP,
you're going to increase health
insurance rates, just to start."
Chamberlin said legislators
may not want to diffuse their
energy by taking it on.

Rossi's seminar set
for Sunshine Law

Monroe County State Attorney
Mark Kohl has scheduled a semi-
nar for Sept. 7 on Florida's
Government-in-the-Sunshine
laws at the Key West courthouse.
Key West City Commissioner
Mark Rossi is required to attend
the class to satisfy terms of a plea
agreement for a misdemeanor
violation of the open-meeting
statute in June 2006.
Kohl is encouraging both sit-
ting City Commission members
and candidates running for city
office to attend.
Earlier this year, Kohl held a
similar workshop for the County
Commission.
In a June 6, 2006, Key West
commission meeting, Rossi indi-
cated he and Mayor Morgan
McPherson discussed a subject
which had come before the com-
mission a violation of the
Sunshine Law.


construction take place in two
phases, with 90 slips added in
phase one and 100 more in the
second.
Harbormaster Richard Tanner
said installation is estimated to be
$1.28 million for phase one and
$1.2 million for phase two. He
said in just over two years, the
city would see a return on that
investment.
Both phases combined could
eventually generate $1.28 million
in revenue annually for the city,
officials say.
Tanner said that for the next
fiscal year, the marina is project-
ed to make a profit of $61,000
after years of losing money.
"Our marina manager said we
can do this with no increases in
staff," Vasil pointed out. "Beyond
the cost of building it, the cost of
operating the marina won't be
any more than it is now."
Vasil said he hopes the project
can be fast-tracked, but Tanner
said he feels the project may take
between three and five years to
complete.
Councilman Pete Worthington,
who has long been involved with
the formulation of the Marina


Master Plan, raised questions
about the project, mainly concen-
trated on the issue of parking.
"Our [land development regu-
lations] state you have to have
one parking space for every boat
slip. Two hundred and 30 moor-
ing buoys and 15 wet slips maxi-
mizes what we have for parking
over there," Worthington said.
"Unless we're going to bulldoze
the baseball fields, I'm not sure
where we're parking the cars.
Planning Director Fred Gross
agreed with Worthington, saying
something first needs to be built
to attract prospective boaters. But
much like marinas in other cities
such as Philadelphia and
Baltimore, Gross said those same
attractions would attract vehicle
traffic as well.
"I don't think it's the boat traf-
fic you have to worry about. If
you make anything interesting
down there, it's the vehicle traffic
you have to worry about," Gross
said.
Vasil said he believes parking
should not be an issue.
"If this is that popular, then
let's build them a parking
garage," he said.

though, for the State Board of
Education. Board members see
the bonuses based largely on
how well a teacher's students

way to encourage better per-

Several committee members
said they agreed with Pickens'
no-cut list including more than
$600 million in financial assis-
tance for university and college

The Legislature is trying to
find ways to cut $1..1 billion out
of the $71 billion annual budget
because of revenue shortfalls
blamed on the state's housing
slump. Legislative leaders say
they plan to call a special ses-
sion starting Sept. 18.
Pickens said he also wants to
use one-time revenue to help
avoid cutting too deeply into
education spending. Such non-
recurring dollars include
unspent money from prior
budget years, errors in revenue
estimates and taxes not expect-
ed to be collected in the future
because they are being phased
out or resulted from unusual sit-
uations ,such as hurricane
rebuilding.

The -case has undergone a
series of delays and controver-
sial courtroom tactics.
The pair admitted to luring
the gator from the Blue Hole, a
freshwater reserve on Big Pine
Key, with dead birds, shooting
out its eyeballs with a pellet
gun and bludgeoning it to
death with a small baseball bat
March 24, 2006.
After killing the gator, Goll
and Milo barbecued the animal
and posted two photos of it on
the popular social networking

The maximum sentence for
the third-degree felony is five
years in prison and/or up to
$1,000 in fines.
On July 8, Bill Becker from
US I Radio's "Morning

Wayne Miller, who was origi-
nally assigned to the case. That
prompted defense attorneys to
call Miller's impartiality into
question and file a motion to
disqualify him, after which
Miller recused himself.
Goll and Milo were expect-

But Miller granted a contin-

Defense attorneys Nathan

Job spike could be near


Redeveloped
lodgings will
need workers
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

A year ago, the Monroe
County Tourist Development
Council released a poll of local
workers and employees and
learned the lack of affordable
housing is driving workers out.
Now developer and housing
advocate Ed Swift says within the
next two years, "Key West will
be in one of the most severe hous-
ing and worker shortages in
recent history."
Swift said he's worried that
some 1,500 jobs will be created
the next 24 months as several
new or redeveloped high-end
properties come on line, but there
won't be available housing for
those who fill the jobs.
The TDC's analysis, released
after polling close to 1,000 serv-
ice workers, found that three of
five of them expected to leave the
Keys within five years because of
the high cost of housing.
A mid-decade study by the
U.S. Census Bureau showed
more than 3,000 have moved out
of the Keys during a time when
most of the state has grown
steadily.
Some residents no doubt left


following the difficulties of
Hurricane Wilma in 2005, and
Swift said the initial employee
shortage following that exodus
has eased.
However, he said the new
Beachside Resort, the re-opening
of The Reach and the former
Atlantic Shores and the redevel-
opment of several New Town


'We're losing

all kinds of

inexpensive

housing in

a multitude

of ways.'
Lisa Tennyson,
housing coordinator


hotels will drive a need for new
employees that simply cannot
afford to live here.
A wage and benefit survey
conducted by the Key West
Chamber of Commerce released
in June shows the worker short-
age so severe after Wilma -
has eased somewhat.
"We're finding this year it's
easier to find quality workers,"


chamber Executive Vice
President Virginia Panico said at
the time. "Turnover has dimin-
ished. But you have to remember
that some employers have down-
sized or consolidated their busi-
nesses."
Swift said "this seeming lull in
the shortage of folks answering
help-wanted ads" could convince
employers of a stable workforce.
"Being lulled into complacen-
cy," he said, "is destined to result
in a greater, more disastrous and
crippling shortage of available
working people."
Lisa Tennyson, Monroe
County's affordable housing
coordinator, said she shares Swift
sense of urgency.
"We need to do more and we
need to do better and we need to
move faster," she said. "It sounds
simple, but it's incredibly diffi-
cult for that to happen. We need
to prioritize, streamline develop-
ment reviews, fast track our proj-
ect."
Exacerbating the problem, she
said, is the fact that "literally hun-
dreds" of deed-restricted afford-
able homes will soon lose their
affordable status.
"We're losing the ones that
were limited with 20-year deed
restrictions," she said. "We're
losing all kinds of inexpensive
housing in a multitude of ways.
Even if we could do a couple of
hundred a year, it wouldn't be
enough to get us out of the hole."

Students could end up

victims of tax cuts

Trust us.
That's the mantra from Tallahassee on the eve of a special leg-
islative session designed to deal with falling state revenue.
Lawmakers will convene starting Sept. 18 with the task of
finding $1.1 billion worth of programs and services they can cut.
On that list: up to $700 million in education funding cuts.
This, after the very same legislators promised this spring that
property tax relief would not penalize Florida's K-12 class-
rooms. The 2007-08 budget already cut the state's higher educa-
tion funding for community colleges and universities by 4 per-
cent.
Last week, Gov. Charlie Crist, joined by GOP legislative lead-
ers, sought to allay fears about the impending session by preach-
ing the value of more tax cuts as the cure for what ails Florida's
economy.
Florida's real estate market is suffering, they concluded, from
too much tax. They urge voters to approve the super-size home-
stead exemption amendment in January, along with ending the
Save Our Homes tax cap.
Then and only then, they argue, will Florida's real estate mar-
ket right itself.
What?
That seems to conveniently ignore that real estate is in the dol-
drums just about everywhere, not just in Florida. And it's driven
by the fallout from the subprime mortgage implosion.
Lenders are tightening credit, which makes it harder for buy-
ers to qualify. Fewer buyers and a surplus of properties for sale
will not be cured by Tallahassee convincing voters to give up
Save Our Homes.
Just consider what happened in California, famous for its
Proposition 13 taxpayer revolt in 1978.
That capped property-assessment increases at 1 percent per
year for individual properties (Florida's Save Our Homes
approach sets that annual cap at 3 percent). Also, California's
Prop 13 limited tax revenue increases to no more than 2 percent
per year.
So what happened in California in nearly three decades since
its passage?
Property values continued to climb.
Local government did shrink, for a while, but fees and tar-
geted taxes increased to make up for lost property tax revenue
(one southern California city even moved a park to make room
for a giant retail center to increase local sales tax revenues).
Oh, and lest we forget, California's standing among leading
states in K-12 education slipped from tops in the nation 30 years
ago to middle-of-the-pack today.
So we don't have to guess at likely outcomes from the Florida
Legislature's latest request to "trust" them.
Take a look at California and make up your own mind.

Slow down and enjoy life; it's too short


EDITOR:
For us, as well as for many families trying to
make ends meet in today's insane, high-tech
money-driven world, real family time seems to
have disappeared faster than a slice of pepperoni
pizza on a Saturday night. Well, I had to do some-
thing about that. Life is too short.
So last week, Beth, John, Ellen and I found
ourselves on a boat six miles off Key West, gear-
ing up to snorkel on the only living coral reef in
the continental United States. The sun was hot
and the sky was blue. The ocean sparkled random
hues of turquoise. High above in the thermals, a
lone frigate bird glided on seven-foot wings.
After the SeaBreeze was secured to the moor-
ing and the captain announced, "The pool is
open!" we were the first ones taking the giant
stride off the starboard rail.
We felt privileged sharing this coral nirvana
with sharks, barracuda, spiny lobster, a stingray
and hundreds of fish of every imaginable color
and shape all going about their lives in harmo-
ny and balance.
After three hours of absolute rapture, we were
back on the boat, invigorated, with no desire to
leave. Then someone shouted, "Dolphins!" A


large family of Tursiops truncatus was playfully
approaching the SeaBreeze. The largest bottlenose
popped his head up only a few feet from where
we were standing. He was obviously checking us
out.
I could easily imagine this highly intelligent
creature instructing his children, "Kids, those are
humans. Be nice to them. They're just beginning
to understand."
It was during that thought when everything
became clear to me. Time and family are our most
precious gifts. And I have no doubt the Earth
itself is the legendary Garden of Eden. We should
stop screwing it up. I envy the dolphins. They
play, love, live and die and they don't make a
big deal about it.
To my friends I offer the following: Slow
down! Work less, play more. Stop killing your-
self. Time is not money. The simple things are
rarely considered valuable, but they are indeed the
most fulfilling. Try to live your life with grace,
humility and respect. Never take the people you
love or the time you have together for granted.
Paradise awaits.

Keys step up, even for out-of-county kids


EDITOR:
On June 11, under a grant from the National
Police Athletic League's Youth Enrichment
Program, I traveled to the Florida Keys with 23
local teenagers from our jurisdictions. The pur-
pose of the grant, called Discover Florida, was
to provide youth in our community an opportu-
nity to experience the beauty and wonders of
their state while learning a history of the areas
visited.
Having lived in the Keys for 20 years, I
wanted the teenagers- to see the beauty of where
I grew up. With the amount of grant money.I
had to work with and not wanting to cut any of
the teenagers, I knew the assistance of local
Keys businesses would be essential in planning
the trip. Various local businesses should be
acknowledged for their generosity.
First and foremost, a huge thank you to
Henry Hamilton of Boyd's Campground on
Stock Island. Mr. Hamilton graciously not only
allowed us to stay at his family campground for
free, but gave us sites right on the water, provid-
ing the teenagers with a beautiful sunrise and.
waters to look at.
Monroe County Sheriff's Office deputies
Charlie Cobb and Daryl Hull of the Fraternal
Order of Police provided a cash donation of
$500 to our group. This allowed us to provide
all with Discover Florida shirts for the trip and
serve as memories for the teenagers.
Our first day was spent in Key West. Sarah
Evans from Historic Tours of America complet-
ed an entire itinerary consisting of a famous
Conch Tour Train tour along with visits to the
Hemingway House, Key West Aquarium and
Pirate Soul Museum. Our group experienced a
wonderful lunch at the Hard Rock and dinner at
El Mason de Pepe's, which was followed by a
fabulous sunset celebration at Mallory Square.


To end the night, we got delightfully scared on
the Famous Ghost Tours of Key West by our
tour guide, Brandt.
We visited the Pigeon Key Foundation on our
second day. Laura and her wonderful staff gave
our group a history of the Flagler railroad and
provided us with lunch on the island. The
remainder of our day was spent aboard an
excursion boat with Strike Zone Charters. I
don't think the teenagers have stopped talking
about their snorkeling adventures or the shark
one of the boys caught and released.
Without the help of these amazing business-
es, all of the teenagers would not have been able
to attend. They truly remind me of how gener-
ous the citizens of the Florida Keys continue to
be.

Clinics now cost, but fees are minimal W1


EDITOR:
Over the past several years, the
Florida Keys Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has
been proud to offer spay and neuter
clinics to our community free of
charge thanks to the generosity of pri-
vate donors. Naturally, there have
always been expenses associated with
these clinics, for example, we must
pay a veterinarian to perform each
procedure and surgical supplies must
be purchased for the clinic.
Reluctantly and after much deliber-
ation, the FKSPCA board has come to
the realization that if we are to contin-
ue to make our clinic available to the
public, we must charge a nominal fee
to cover our expenses.
We know that low-cost and free
spay and neuter clinics help to greatly
reduce the number of unwanted litters
in our community. We are keenly
aware of the tragic problem of pet
overpopulation in our country and the
needless waste of innocent lives that
are lost every year simply because
there are not enough homes for them
all. And we know that without our
spay and neuter clinics our shelter


would be directly impacted, as would
the lives of hundreds of animals.
The base fees we will charge for
spay and neuter procedures will range
between $20 and $50, depending on
the type of animal and its gender.
These fees are still considerably less
that those charged by most veterinari-
an clinics. For those with a financial
hardship that prevents them from
affording even these low fees, we will
offer an assistance program that will
continue to be possible through dona-
tions from our community. I ask
everyone who can to please donate to
this important program.
I also ask everyone to please spay
and neuter your pet. Even if you find
a home for every puppy or. kitten in
your pet's litter, that is one less home
for a wonderful animal waiting
patiently at your local shelter.
For more information on our clin-
ics, please call 294-4857 or send an e-
mail to info@fkspca.org. To schedule
an appointment call 292-4600.

Quotes need clarifying


EDITOR:
In a story that appeared in your
paper Aug. 29 about the proposed
Southernmost House restaurant up for
approval, a couple of errors were
reported in my comments.
I did not say that live bands would
not perform while customers dine. I
am not privy to the owners' plans for
any entertainment.
The paragraph that begins "Over
the last several years..." was initiated
by reporter Kyle Teal when he said
something to the effect that according
to Mayor Morgan McPherson, I had
written a letter concerning trying to


assist with noise complaints. My
response was "Over the past several
years, I have attempted to work with
Morgan to try and mitigate his con-
cerns. That has not been successful."
William Daniel Burley
General manager
Southernmost House

Editor's note: The Keynoter stands
by the story. Thursday, the Key West
Planning Board delayed making a
decision on whether to approve the
restaurant.


Partnerships breed success


EDITOR:
On behalf of the Monroe County
Health Department, I would like to rec-
ognize the efforts of Leadership
Monroe County Class 15 and the
Florida Keys Area Health Education
Center for their combined efforts to ,
provide immunizations to the school
children of Monroe County.
Class 15 chose this project as their
community-service project. Its mem-
bers wanted to sponsor Saturday immu-
nization clinics and they contacted
called the Health Education Center for
assistance in setting it up. Michael
Cunningham from the center gave the
class guidance in how to facilitate hold-
ing the clinics, and the Health
Department was asked to organize and
staff the clinics.


The department provided nurses and
tech personnel at the front and back
ends of each clinic to ensure the immu-
nizations were administered and record-
ed properly, as well as provide the vac-
cines needed for the project. A total-of
410 immunizations were administered
to 137 children at these Saturday clin-
ics.
Leadership Monroe County Class 15
is to be commended for its community
spirit in making these clinics possible
and for the splendid effort working with
the Health Education Center and Health
Department to help ensure the health of
the children in the Florida Keys.
Sincerely,
Administrator Bob Eadie
Monroe County
Health Department


The new McCoy terminal rises at Key West International Airport (this was its status in
April). It was budgeted at around $25 million but is now at $31.6 million. A grand
jury recently said the project has been mismanaged.


Local government spends as if cash drops from sky


EDITOR:
Money, money, money and politics.
What is wrong with Key West's airport?
Why does it need this new terminal? Why
are our elected officials allowed to squan-
der millions of taxpayer dollars on any-
thing? $31.6 million, that is a lot of money.
What really frustrates me is that it is
being named after County Commissioner
Sonny McCoy. You take taxpayers' money
and build yet another unneeded building
and then you don't allow the taxpayers any
say so in the naming of it. How much did
Mr. McCoy pay for that privilege, anyway?
Or did they draw his name out of a hat?
Budget Director Sal Zappulla is gone.
Oh, and look; when Airports Director Peter
Horton tried to open his mouth about costs,
County Administrator Tom Willi waved the
magic wand and yanked him out. This ter-
minal is being paid for with taxpayers'
hard-earned money. It needs to be dedicat-
ed to them, the citizens.
- There is another monstrosity I would
like to comment on, Marathon High
School. Don't get me wrong, that school
was in need of a makeover. I attended that
school; it was getting to be old but it was-
n't small.
When I was in the ninth grade, my
mother sent me to live with my aunt due to
Hurricane Georges. I attended nine weeks
of high school at Avon Park High. It's a
large school; we had to have student IDs,
lunch was broken down into three separate
times and it housed about 1,000 students.
That was only ninth through 12th grade, by
the way.
Our classes were not overcrowded. We
had, at the most, 25 kids per class. Some of
the classes had maybe 15 students. Avon
Park High was, and is, nowhere near the
size of the new Marathon High. You go fo
Miami and you might find a school that


size. Our population versus Miami's is
nowhere close to being the same, either.
$47 million for the school is also a lot
of money. Think what could have been
done if only half was spent on construction
and the other half on education itself. How
about those teachers' salaries? I'm sure
they could use a makeover.
So now you've got a new problem;
there is no money, for the courtyard at the
school. Where are we, Beverly Hills?
Carrie Cravey
Long Key

Editor's note: The McCoy terminal is
named for Sonny McCoy and his late wife,
Merili, a former Key West city commission-
er.


Friends make pain easier
EDITOR:
I want to personally express my grate-
fulness to the Coldwell Banker Schmidt
Chartible Foundation for its generous help
to me when my husband passed away. I
also wish to bring awareness to those who
may be in need to apply and find compas-
sion.
I also want to thank the Marathon
Moose, and especially Fran Newman for
the-very nice memorial for my husband.
Fran worked very hard to make it special.
Thanks should also be given to Bob
Newman and Dave Scott for the beautiful
rendition of "Amazing Grace." I have
never heard it sung any more wonderful.
This is something I shall remember
always.
Grateful thanks to all of our friends
who helped me in this time of need.

Keys briefs


Commission will address a heav-
ily debated proposal tonight to
add six low-income units for peo-
ple living with HIV and AIDS to
property owned by AIDS Help
Inc. at 711 Catherine St, also
known as Seebol Place.
The area now has eight units.
Reconstruction would provide, a
total of 14.
City Commissioner Bill Verge
is undecided on the $1.2 million
proposal, calling it a "neighbor-
hood" and "density issue" free of
discriminatory attitudes. Rather,
he said there are concerns about
parking and added congestion to
the residential neighborhood.
However, AIDS Help volun-
teer Kenne' Tucker said, "I don't
see where six more units would
cause the neighborhood any
problems."
On July 26, the Planning
Board voted against the Key West
Planning Department's recom-
mendation to deny the proposal
and approved the plan after hear-
ing much comment from mem-
bers and employees of AIDS
Help, as well as neighbors in
opposition to what they called a
move that would intensify an
existing parking quandary.
The vote was 2-1, with James
Gilleran and Terry Garcia
approving and Barry Barroso Jr.
dissenting. Richard Klitenick

recused himself and Timothy
Root was absent.
The Planning Department rec-
ommended denial because the
project did not comply with cer-
tain code regulations.
If the City Commission does
pass the item, 14 one-bedroom
units at 500 square feet each
would replace the eight existing
rooms. The units would have
small kitchens and refrigerators
to store medicine and food.
Representatives of AIDS Help
said tenants would be informedd"
and most likely unable to drive.
Caretakers would make frequent
visits but would not stay there
permanently.
However, visitors could fre-
quent the complex and stay there
if they wish, which raised more
parking concerns.

The Ford Focus, driven by
Darrell Yancy, 21, hit the trailer,
which was being pulled by a

Hawk's Cay now 'preferred'


By PAMELA SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor


vS S.l

*3snc,~ B-in 1 I


resorts using a 1,600-item check-
list. The property must earn an
exemplary rating in each area to
remain part of the Preferred Hotel
group.
The resort is undergoing the
first phase of a $30 million reno-
vation that Bello says is on sched-
ule.
During this stage of the proj-
ect, which began in mid-August,
Hawk's Cay's 177 hotel rooms,
its main swimming pool, lagoon
area and four of its restaurants
will be closed for upgrading or
expansion. The hotel's interior is
being demolished to make way
for new guest rooms with
expanded bathrooms, and a new
lobby that opens onto an ocean
view.
Bello said the renovated por-
tions of the property are sched-
uled to reopen Dec. 15. Until
then, guests can stay in one of the
resort's villas and enjoy Hawk's
Cay's four other pools, its
Dolphin Connection attraction,
spa, Water's Edge restaurant,
children's and teen's club activi-
ties, and full-service marina.


After the hotel reopens, Bello
said the resort's privately owned
villas will be upgraded in a
process that should take about
three months, and although the
renovated resort is designed to be
a high-end luxury destination, he
said it would still retain its family
friendly atmosphere with an
emphasis on outstanding person-
al service.
There have been no staff lay-
offs resulting from the renova-
tions, according to Bello, and he
said human resources staff is
recruiting more employees for a
variety of positions. The resort
will hold what Bello called
"Hawk's Cay University" in mid-
November to train new employ-
ees before the hotel reopens.
The Monroe County Tourist
Development Council's office
manager, Linda Stuart, said her
agency is pleased to-have a
Preferred Hotel and Resort in the
Keys. She said a meeting has
already been scheduled for repre-
sentatives from Hawk's Cay to
meet with the TDC's director of
sales.
"It's a very exciting prospect,
that's for sure," Stuart said.


.Gas station under contract


ROUNDUP / From 11

of Shell Oil Products U.S., recent
changes in two Shell stations in
the Keys are not related to an
October 2006 agreement
between Shell and Circle K
Stores Inc. (a wholly owned sub-
sidiary of Alimentation Couche-
Tard Inc.)
Terms of that agreement were,
in part, that Circle K would pur-
chase Shell's interest in some
stores in Florida and elsewhere.
But Shell spokesperson Jenny
Powers said the conversion of the
Shell station at mile marker 99 to
Circle K was simply a coinci-
dence and not part of that agree-
ment.
Circle K Manager Jose Perez
said the store, which used to be
branded Shell, was sold to the
Circle K company in June. Perez
said his store does sell Shell
gasoline, however.
Another former Shell station,
in Marathon, is being sold as
well, but that is also unrelated to
the Shell/Circle K agreement,
Powers said. The former Island


Joe's convenience store, mile
marker 50, is under contract,
according to Greg MacLaren,
owner of Internet Realty of the
Florida Keys.
"That property has gone under
contract and we're probably 30
days away from closing,"
MacLaren said "I can't make
any detailed comments yet
because we haven't closed."
But MacLaren did say a "local
company" is working to purchase
the property and that it plans to
continue operating it as a con-
venience store/gas station,
although he did not know under
which brand.
Island Joe's owner Joe Wells
did not return calls from the
Keynoter and Keys Sunday seek-
ing comment.

Hyatt's 'eco-glam'
The Hyatt Key West Resort
and Marina, 601 Front St., is
going "eco-glam," according to
Corey Finjer of Hawkins
International PR in New York.
Finjer has announced the
Hyatt Key West's newly opened
Jala Spa (jala is the Sanskrit word


for "water") will demonstrate its
commitment to "preserving the
destination's coral reefs, which
- surround, sustain and protect Key
West," by providing financial
support for Reef Relief, a local
nonprofit organization.
A $5 donation will be made to
Reef Relief with each Signature
Jala Blue treatment purchased at
the spa, Finjer said. Additionally,
$1 will be donated for each
booster or supplemental treat-
ment purchased. The Jala Blue
treatment, which lasts 1.5 hours
and costs $195, features all-natu-
ral products blended exclusively
for Jala Spa.
In addition, Finjer said the
resort, which is wrapping up a
$10 million redesign project set
for completion this fall, has
- applied for green lodging certifi-
cation through Florida's
Department of Environmental
Protection. Hotels and resorts
certified "green" must institute
and maintain energy and water
conservation methods, as well as
other practices designed to
reduce a facility's negative
impact on the environment.


Managing director Stephen
Bello has announced that Hawk's
Cay Resort on Duck Key has
joined the ranks of some of the
world's top independently owned
hotels following its recent selec-
tion to become a "Preferred Hotel
and Resort.",
Preferred Hotels and Resorts
is a group of independently
owned properties that have met a
rigorous set of "standards of
excellence" in personal service
and accommodations.
According to the Preferred
Hotels and Resorts Web site,
there are more than 120 Preferred
hotels around the world, includ-
ing Tokyo's Palace Hotel, the
Beau-Rivage in Geneva, the
Broadmoor in Colorado Springs
and West Virginia's legendary
Greenbrier..
"It's an elite group," Bello
said..
To maintain status as a
Preferred Hotel, properties are
subject to annual surprise inspec-
tions during which independent
evaluators judge the luxury

Experts offer
advice on treating
pest problem
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

When having summer fun
with pets, one should keep
blood-sucking parasites in mind.
"Every summer we see an
increase in ticks," said Tammy
Fox, director of the Florida Keys
Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals. "It's
because of the hot, humid
weather. They just like it."
Perhaps it has something to
do with locals taking their dogs
hiking or walking though Keys
vegetation throughout July. No
matter what it was, the SPCA
treated 59 dogs with ticks that
month.
Fox said ticks have a strategy
when it comes to finding their
prey, or food source: They live
in grassy areas, so the mites
often climb to the tip of a leaf or
tall grass blade and latch onto a
passing animal, usually dogs,
embedding their mouthpieces
deep into their skin.
Various types of the arach-
nids have a taste for human and
animal blood. They can be
organized into three families:
soft ticks with a membranous
outer surface, hard ticks with
outer shells (the most common
type found on dogs) and nuttal-
liellidae, a less-prominent
African species.
"With the high humidity, it's
very important to provide cool
areas," Fox said. "The more
humid it is, the easier it is for
[dogs] to get hot spots, Staph
infections" and other skin dis-
eases.
Hot spots, also called most
eczema and summer sores, are
wet, raw lesions that can also
form from moisture and bacte-
ria. Staphylococcus aureus, also
known as Staph infections, stem
from bacteria that can infest the
nose, throat, armpits or geni-
talia, often caused by cuts on the
skin and lack of hygiene.
Typically, most infections are
harmless and easily treatable
with antiseptic or medication.
Occasionally, however, the dis-
ease can result in death.


Lyme disease is another
potential result of a tick passing
pathogens into your body, or its
head getting stuck in its prey's
body. Deer ticks pass that dis-
ease on more than any other
tick, according Web sources.
Lyme disease symptoms begin
as rashes, fevers and aches, and
without medical attention, could
grow to cause seizures, optical
complications and cardiac
arrhythmia.
The American, or brown, dog
tick is probably the most com-
mon of all the mites. It carries
Rocky Mountain spotted fever,
which causes headaches, fevers
and rashes. But it's not lyme dis-
ease.
Ehrlichiosis is another tick-
bore disease and can infect
dogs (most commonly German
shepards), cats and even
humans.
Fox doesn't recommend
removing the ticks with tweez-
ers, as placing pressure on a
tick's body could cause
pathogens to move into the
dog's body. Topical treatments
are the way to go, she said.
But if you do decide to pull
the tick out with tweezers, there
is a careful and methodical way
to do it. Pinch the tweezers at
the farthest end of the tick's
head in a slow, steady motion
without using any substance like
nail polish or alcohol.
According to Fox, a dog
recently brought to the SPCA on
Stock Island was heavily infest-
ed with ticks and received a spe-
cial 10-minute shampoo with
Pyrethrin..It kills fleas, lice and
ticks. The exact type of treat-
ment would depend on the
breed's skin.
Most animals brought into
the SPCA with tick problems are
dogs; rarely are they cats, Fox
said.
Even though "fleas are much
more common than ticks," Dr.
Earl DanBuskirk of the
Marathon Animal Hospital
agreed this time of year brings in
tick-infested pets to vets'
offices.
VanBuskirk said it's OK to
remove the tick, but be careful
not to leave the mouthpiece in
the skin, as it will cause a bump
or sore.


This is Chanel, who was infested with ticks and treated with a
special shampoo at the Florida Keys Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals.

Dolphins bring down Conchs

Marathon defense
dominates game
in 25-14 victory
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


It took all of 10 seconds for
the Marathon-High School foot-
ball team to score its first points
of the regular season, as Sergio
Howard took the opening kick-
off down the right sideline for a
touchdown.
The star senior running back
also rushed for 130 yards on 24
carries and caught two balls for
58 yards and a touchdown, lead-
ing the Dolphins to a home vic-
tory over Key West High School
Friday, 25-14.
Marathon head coach Lance
Martin said the team implement-
ed a new kick return in practice
leading up to the game, though
he was surprised to see Key
West actually put the ball in the
explosive Howard's hands.
"I told our other returned,
'You're probably going to see
every kick for the rest of the
year,'" Martin said.

Few highlights
as Keys team
is dropped 42-0
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

As time ran down in the
fourth quarter, Coral Shores
quarterback Chris Rini scram-
bled left while looking for an
open receiver.
He reversed course and ran
right, nearly sideline to side-
line, before finding Darius
Kittle working to get open, and
fired a pass. Sanders made the
catch for a 4-yard gain.
That captured Friday's


home 42-0 loss to Ransom
Everglades flashes of effort
and skill that didn't earn much
for the Hurricanes.
Ransom's offense blew
through a revamped Coral
Shores defense, scoring on five
of six drives in the first half for
a 35-0 advantage at halftime.
A running clock helped the
Canes limit Ransom to a single
touchdown in the second half.
The game result was worri-
some for Coral Shores fans, as

School comes to Tavernier for

Pace deals Lady

Conchs a tough defeat


Key West gets
another chance
against Spartans
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Intimidated in. a lopsided
loss at Monsignor Pace Friday,
the Key West High School vol-
leyball team will get another
shot at the Spartans this week.
"I can't wait, the girls are
mad at themselves," Key West
head coach Jessy Hulme said.
The District 16-4A rematch
will be at 4:30 p.m. Friday at
the Bobby Menendez Gym.
Hulme expects the Conchs
to play better than they did in
losing. 25-6. 25-8. 25-9. on


Pace's home court.
"Pace is a pretty tough team,
but I didn't think they were that
impressive," she said. "They
ran out real cool and used jump
serves. That got the best of my
girls. We were intimidated."
Pace's Elizabeth Torres,
with 17 aces and 13 assists;
accounted for more points than
the entire Key West team.
"We just didn't show up to
play," said Hulme, whose team
fell to 0-2. "I couldn't tell we
were volleyball players. Even
our best servers couldn't
serve."
Hulme has no problem with

This is the view from Marathon's skybox seating on the second floor of the new classroom
building. Key West sophomore quarterback Phillip Young sets to take a snap as part of an early
third-quarter scoring drive that would make it a 10-7 game. Marathon won the Friday contest,
25-14.


Conchs limited to -7 first-half yards


MARATHON / From 15

Key West head coach Robert
James said the Conchs' failure to
move the ball hurt the team
much more than Howard's
return.
"Our defense played well
enough to get us the ball and we
needed to generate touch-
downs," James said. "That


would have really picked us up."
Marathon held Key West to
minus 7 first-half yards and out-
gained the Conchs in overall
yardage 323 to 114.
Conch sophomore quarter-
back Phillip Young accounted
for many of those yards on his
own, both running and passing.
"He's improved tremendous-
ly. He threw the ball much better
... his passes were right there,"
James said of Young.
Marathon consistently moved
the ball in the first half, only to
have drives stall near the goal
line. The Dolphins only man-
aged only a field goal after the
initial kickoff return, taking a
10-0 lead into the half.
In their opening drive of the
second half, Key West looked
rejuvenated.
The Conchs put together a
solid drive .that ended with a
short touchdown run by junior
running back Alfred Rahming to
make the score 10-7.
But Marathon would respond
on its very next drive with a 44-
yard touchdown pass from sen-
ior Daniel Perry to Howard.
Perry caught a lateral from quar-
terback Kenny White that put
the defense off guard, enabling
him to throw a strike to a wide-
open Howard down the field.
James said he felt the play
was the turning point in the
game.
"They hit the flea-flicker pass
f i I I j r


and that took the wind out of our
sails," he said.
The Conchs turned the ball
over three times in the second
half, but were still alive halfway
through the fourth quarter.
White threw a touchdown to
senior Fernando Taylor, but Key
West quickly responded with
another Rahming touchdown to
make it a 23-14 game.
Marathon fumbled on the
ensuing possession, only to have
the Conchs fumble the ball right
back to the Dolphins.
Marathon drove the ball
inside the Key West 5-yard line
before turning the ball over on
downs. But the Conchs were
pinned back against their own
goal line and Young was tackled
in the end zone for a safety,
which essentially put the game
out of reach.
SThe game was played in front
of a substantial crowd at
Marathon High School, as both
schools had sizable cheering
sections.
"I can only remember one
crowd that big and it was Coral
Shores my first year," Martin
said. "Our crowds have been
down because of the construc-
tion. I'm happy to see [them]
come back, these kids deserve
it."
Marathon's next game is
Friday at Deltona High School,
7 p.m., while Key West will visit
Coral Shores Friday at 7:30 p.m.

and go into the game against
Key West a better football
team," head coach Todd
Gideon said.
A Coral Shores defensive
scheme that relies on quickness
was overmatched against
Ransom's capable offensive
front.
Big Raider halfback Nico
Lagueruela ran for more than
150 yards, including touch-
down romps of 37 and 62
yards.
The Raiders "were more
experienced than us," Gideon
said. "They were able to domi-
nate the offensive and defen-
sive lines and that was the
game, really."
Coral Shores defender Jason
Soares was among leading
Hurricane tacklers, which was
unfortunate because Soares, at
safety, was the last line of
defense.
The only time the Raiders
did not score on a first-half
possession was when a bad
pitch resulted in a fumble-
recovered by Hurricane defen-
sive tackle Justin Marshall.
Offensively, Coral Shores
went to the shotgun formation
to give Rini, a good passer,


time to throw.
It worked better on paper,
Gideon said. "We put in a few
wrinkles but didn't get it
done," he said. "We couldn't
get the ball out to our guys
quick enough."
The Canes never got beyond
the Raider 25-yard line.
After a 54-yard kickoff
return by Ryan Biondoletti in
the first quarter, Rini passed to
the Raider 36 before the drive
ended with a failed run on
fourth and 1.
The Canes' best drive came
when they got the ball with
1:22 left before halftime. Rini
ran for 10 years and hit on
passes, to Kittle, Biondoletti
and Randell Jackman to reach
the Ransom 25 before the
buzzer sounded.
Coral Shores got into
Ransom territory on the first
drive of the third quarter, a 10-
play march which included a 6-
yard run by Rini on fourth-and-
2 and a 15-yard run. But after
getting a first-and-10 at the
Raider 30, two big penalties
pushed the Canes back to a
rarely seen fourth-and-32.
The short list of highlights
for the Canes include
Jackman's nice catch and run
for a 31-yard completion in the
first quarter.

Canes volleyball outplayed by Florida Christian


The Patriots
bring more pain
for Coral Shores
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A chance to avenge last year's
loss to Florida Christian in the
state volleyball playoffs went
awry for Coral Shores' Lady
Hurricanes Friday.
"Well, that was fun," Coral
Shores coach Andy Thiery said,
using a tone that made it plain the
25-12, 25-8, 25-9 loss was any-


thing but fun.
In the first round of the state
Region 4-3A playoffs last
October, Florida's District 15-3A
champion Lady Patriots ended
the season for the 16-3A runner-
up Hurricanes in a 25-16, 25-12,
25-19 match.
On the whole, Thiery said, he
preferred the playoff beating.
"We were more competitive," he
said.
Florida Christian reached the
state 3A semifinals before falling
to eventual champion Lake
Highland Prep.
The Patriots improved to 1-1


Friday; Coral Shores dropped to
0-2 in the regular season.
Gulliver Prep beat the Canes in
the regular-season opener.
""We knew coming in that it
was going to be a struggle,"
Thiery said. "Florida Christian is
good, and we're a blue-collar
team that has to struggle for
every point. I hope we can look at
this as a learning experience and
take something away from it."
The Lady Canes play two
matches at home this week: 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.).

CalSutphin -T h e
tourna-
ment's celebrity host is to be
Major League Baseball Hall of
Fame superstar Wade Boggs,
lauded for his career with the
Boston Red Sox and New York
Yankees. Other celebrity anglers
include astronaut Bruce Melnick,
who participated in both Endeavor
and Discovery shuttle missions.
Gary Ellis of Islamorada
founded the Redbone series of
tournaments benefiting cystic
fibrosis research.
I had an opportunity to have a
one-on-one with him to discuss
everything from the status of CF
research, his daughter Nicole (the
inspiration for his efforts) and
what's next for the man who
helped raise close to $10 million
dollars to catch a cure.
Keynoter: "How has 2007
gone for the Redbone?"
Ellis: "This year has been a
big one for us because in 1988 we
kicked off the Redbone, which
means we this year will mark the
20th anniversary of our main
event in Islamorada, the Cheeca
Redbone. I have to say that we
had no idea when we started try-
ing to find a cure for CF that today
we would still not have found
one."
Keynoter: "For those who
don't know, why cystic fibrosis?"
Ellis: "Our daughter Nicole
was born prematurely and had to
endure surgery immediately to
have part of her intestine removed


due to cystic fibrosis. The doctor
came out of surgery and said that
you have a tough kid and. she is a
survivor. He then said that she'll
be OK but she might have cystic
fibrosis. I said, 'What the hell is
that?' He explained in that with
good parental and good doctor
and nurse care, Nicole possibly
could expect to live until her
teens. That was not good enough."
+ Keynoter: "How's Nicole
now?"
Ellis: "Nicole is 23 years old
now. She still deals with her CF
by doing three hours of inhalation
therapy as well as hours of physi-
cal therapy weekly just to sustain
her daily life. She's graduated
cum laude from Stetson
University, where she has a degree
in Spanish and communications.
She's done great and like the doc-
tor said at her birth, she's a sur-
vivor.
"When Nicole graduated from
college, she had an interview with
.a guidance counselor and was
asked what she wanted to do with
her life, what her dreams were.
Nicole said, 'I want to live.'
People don't realize.what a daily
struggle it is for someone with CF.
For Nicole to get married and
have kids, making me a grandpar-
ent, were dreams in the past that
now are a reality."
Keynoter: "Is medical sci-
ence doing enough?"
+ Ellis: "When Nicole was
born, the life expectancy of a child
born with CF was 15. Today it is
36 and a half. Our goal is to make
sure Nicole never catches up to
that number. Because of the nature

Because of that fact, there has
,* i t I .1. ;


Nicole Ellis,
in younger
days, is the
inspiration
for her
father Gary,
who
founded the
Redbone
series to
raise money
for the
Cystic
Fibrosis
Foundation.


been no federal money going into
the research.
"The CF Foundation has been
very prudent in focusing on find-
ing a cure and I believe we are
very close. Researchers had.isolat-
ed the CF gene early on, which
helped in research for heart dis-
ease, diabetes, and many other
diseases. Now the- National
Institute of Health is involved and
things have been-going wild. So
many things are happening with
diseases that have ties to CF that I
know we are close. We haven't
killed the dragon but we sure have
shortened the fight."
+ Keynoter: "When are you
going to slow down?'"
Ellis: "It's pretty hard to
slow down when you have a mis-
sion that hasn't seen the finish
line. I've made so many wonder-
ful friends who share the same
vision of finding a cure that I'm
not sure I want to back off.
"If I wanted to hit all of the
Redbone-sanctioned tournaments,
I could leave Key West after the
S.L.A.M. and fly to Nantucket,
then to Aspen, Colo., then to
Montauk, Long Island, then to
Key Largo and finish off in
Georgia. It could be just a nonstop
year-round job if I desired."
"I'm going to keep on doing it
as long as we keep raising money
for cystic fibrosis. In 1988 with
the very first tournament, we
raised $16,000. It took us 10 years
to get to a million dollars. For the
last four years, we have raised
well over a million dollars annual-
ly. When I look at Nicole, it is a
pretty self-motivating job."
