ANOTHER LANDING: These Cuban migrants landed at Smathers Beach in Key West just
before 7 a.m. Friday, apparently smuggled in. There were 33 adults and one child; two
suspected smugglers were arrested near Key West International Airport. Earlier this week,
another 17 migrants showed up in Key West, at Fort Zachary Taylor. Would-be immigrants
often leave Cuba in the late summer due to the calm waters.



Gator killers get 6 months


Community service
includes working
with animal groups
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

After Monroe County Circuit
Judge Mark H. Jones heard hours
of testimony from both friends
and foes of two men who admit-
ted clubbing a protected alligator


to death last year, he handed
down his decision Friday:
Six months in jail, five years
probation, and eight hours of
community service a month for
three years working with animal
groups. They also must be psy-
chologically evaluated.
After Jones read the punish-
ments, handcuffs were slapped
on Timothy Goll, 19, of
Marathon and Jordan Milo 20, of


Big Pine Key, and they were
immediately taken to the Stock
Island Detention Center.
The pair pleaded guilty this
past June 5 to alligator poaching,
a third-degree felony, for killing
the American alligator at the Blue
Hole on Big Pine March, 24,
2006, then. barbecuing it in
Marathon.

Singh said his Keys-based

Sewer


bill now


$662M

That's up from
$503 million
since March
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

In March, local leaders fig-
ured it would take $503 million
to finish installing sewers
throughout the Keys.
Thursday night, during what's
been dubbed the third sewer
summit convened by state Rep.
Ron Saunders, that figure rose to
$662 million.
The $159 million increase
barely raised an eyebrow during
the Marathon meeting that
brought together representatives
of Keys municipalities and sewer
authorities.
Local officials hope the state
will bond out the money so Keys
taxpayers won't have to foot the
hefty bill. Saunders is working
on an interim project with other
House members that would seek
bond authorization from the
Legislature when it convenes
early next year.

Cay Clubs closes 3 restaurants


CAY CLUBS / From I

after speaking with Clark.
Tranquility Bay has 87 rental
units, Indigo Reef has 6 7
and Coral Lagoon has 25. All
have at least three bedrooms,
designed to cater to high-end
travelers.
The move does not affect
Sombrero Cay Clubs Resort in
Marathon or other Cay Clubs
properties, which remain under
the Clearwater firm's manage-
ment control.
However, three of the five
Florida Keys restaurants affiliat-
ed with Cay Clubs Resorts closed
their doors Thursday. No dates
for reopening were announced.
Cay Clubs Vice President
Frank Rego said closing Cabot's
on the Water and the Latitudes
Restaurant, both in Marathon,
and the Tropical Cafe in
Tavernier is a necessary econom-
ic move during the fall's slow
tourism season.
"It's a brief, temporary situa-
tion, not a big thing," Rego said.
"This is a dead time, dead slow. It
costs more to keep them open
[than the restaurants make].
We're taking the necessary steps
to run a cost-effective business."
"It's clearly a seasonal thing,"
Brown said. "Considering that
Cay Clubs faces increasing chal-
lenges in the real-estate market, it
just makes more sense to close
them down now and reopen back
in the season."
Cay Club's Pilot House
Restaurant in Key Largo and the
Butterfly Cafe at Tranquility Bay
remain open.

Smugglers caught,
migrants repatriated

Crew aboard the U.S. Coast
Guard cutter Knight Island on
Wednesday repatriated 88 undoc-
umented Cuban migrants from
four separate interdictions to
Bahia de Cabanas, Cuba.
Among the incidents:
A good Samaritan located a
homemade kayak with two
migrants 25 miles south of
Islamorada Aug. 31.
A Coast Guard crew on the
. cutter Satfis, stopped a vessel
made of tin with Dlastic and


wood trim with 14 male and five
female migrants 50 miles south
of the Dry Tortugas the same say.
An Air National Guard hel-
icopter crew conducting counter-
narcotic operations located a rus-
tic vessel with seven Cuban men
and one woman during a routine
flight about 22 miles south of
Key West Sept. 1.
The crew of a Coast Guard
C-130 found a 35-foot go-fast
vessel with four outboard engines
carrying 59 migrants and two
suspected smugglers heading
toward the U.S. the same day.
Authorities; had, to. disable the.
engines with gunfire.


many of the older resorts as
condo-hotels but recently scaled
back operations in the face of the
withering real-estate market.
Cay Clubs laid off a reported
80 to 100 staff members in May,
and did not renew freelance
musicians at several properties.
Company officials could not
say how many people were
affected by the restaurant clos-
ings Thursday.
The Keynoter reported in
August that 20 investors at
Sombrero Cay Club (the former
Sombrero Resort) have filed suit,
alleging they purchased condo-
hotel units based on inaccurate
appraisals and revenue predic-
tions. They allege fraud.
Other buyers of Cay Clubs
condo-hotel units told the Miami
Herald that the company has
been delinquent in promised
lease payments for the purchased
units.
According to the Herald, Cay
Clubs warned in regulatory fil-
ings it may be forced into bank-
ruptcy if it can't refinance more
than $74 million in loans coming
due this fall.
It owes more than $10 million
in late lease payments to buyers
and missed $1 million in loan
payments this year, regulatory fil-
ings say.
-A Cay Clubs affiliate, Cristal
Cay Productions, acquired the
Billfish Xtreme Release League,
a Caribbean fishing tournament
series televised on the ESPN2
sports channel. The BXRL, now
under Cristal management, start-
ed the 2007 series in Marathon
but halted operations after stag-
imng ts.iofsix sche uled touma-i
ments. .

'You just don't get it'


By DAN GALLAGHER


When the Seven Mile Bndge was rebuilt as a
highway in 1938. there was no way for vehicles
to get down to Pigeon Key. Since the island \%as
then destined to be a maintenance site for the


State Roads Department, it w\as imperative to
ha\ e access to the bridge for vehicles. Thus they
built a wooden ramp using railroad ties taken
from the disassembled tram bndge. This photo
shows the support beams in place prior to the
ramp getting a deck. Photo from collection of
Pete Bow.

Milo and Jones argued after
-Milo told Jones his sentence
means he will be discharged
.from the U.S. Army. He was
waiting to deploy to Iraq and was
wearing his uniform during the
hearing.
"You just don't get it," Jones
said, adding that he thought for a
minute that Milo was sincerely
regretful, but his comment
swayed him otherwise.
At the beginning of the hear-
ing, Milo spoke to Jones and a
filled courtroom many people
wearing green in support of alli-
gators about the regret he
feels for his behavior.
"Animal lovers their hearts
were harmed by me," he said.
"Animal cruelty is not something
that I stand for. I am deeply,
deeply sorry."
Because of his guilty plea,
which amounts to a conviction,
Milo can no longer serve in the
military.

Weather disturbance
not a Keys threat

The National Hurricane
Center said Friday morning that a
low-pressure system off the East
Coast showed signs of develop-
ing into the season's seventh
tropical cyclone.
The center issued a special
tropical-disturbance statement at
8:45 a.m. about the system, which
is located between Bermuda and
the U.S. southeast coast.
The center said thunderstorms
around the low-pressure area had
become "better organized"
overnight and conditions "are
becoming more favorable for
additional development and a
tropical depression could form
later today."
If the disturbance becomes a
tropical depression or storm, it is


will be boys" incident.
Milo and Goll's attorneys
have 30 days to appeal the sen-
tence. Ken Padowitz, represent-
ing Milo, said he plans to appeal
on the grounds that Jones
allowed community members
without a "nexus" to the incident
to testify.
Padowitz emphasized the fact
that his client had no prior
record, but Jones pointed out an
incident from seventh grade writ-
ten in a presentence investigative
report. No arrest was made in
that incident.
Goll was charged with drunk
driving after he was arrested for
killing the alligator. His father,
Andrew Goll, said his son was
parked in his car and had bought
alcohol. He waited 74 days to
bail him out of jail, he said, get-
ting a little choked up.
"I've seen the depression, as
he's learned the consequences of
this senseless act," Andrew Goll
said.
Jones clarified that the case
was not one of animal cruelty,
but of taking a protected alligator
from its habitat, which is a more
serious charge.
He offered aggravating fac-
tors: he believed the act was pre-
meditated, and that the defen-
dants caused unnecessary pain to
the animal and were overall
insensitive to nature.
He said, however, that he does
take their youth into account.


expected to move westward or
northwestward, threatening the
Carolinas.
According to the center's
location of the system Friday
morning, the center was about
700 miles west-northwest of the
Upper Keys.
Sean Daida, a forecaster at the
National Weather Service forecast
office in Key West, said the sys-
tem was unlikely to move south-
westward to affect the Keys.
The center's Friday morning
statement advises "interests
along the East Coast" to closely
watch the progress of the system.
Daida said the current atmos-
pheric conditions over the Keys
were producing higher rain
chances, and heavy downpours
had occurred in many parts of the
Keys overnight and early Friday.

A special legislative session

because House and Senate lead-
ers were unable to compromise
on cutting more than $1 billion
from the state budget.
Legislators intended to meet
Sept. 18 to cut the $71 billion
state budget to match projected
revenues, which could be $1.1
billion less than originally esti-
mated.
In a Sept. 6 letter, Senate
President Ken Pruitt and House
Speaker Marco Rubio said they
will call off the session, but will
continue working on how to
approach the projected shortfall..
The letter also stated that they
hope to call a budget-cutting ses-
sion later in the fall.
The House and Senate
approached the cuts differently,
Rubio spokeswoman Jill
Chamberlin said. The Senate is
looking at cuts across-the-board
while the House is looking at pri-
oritizing spending cuts.
This month, House panels
heard reports from state agencies
that have been asked to cut as
much as 10 percent from their
budgets.
."No one actually expected
that," Chamberlin said, adding that
an estimated 4 percent rollback
would cut spending $1 billion.
Florida's real estate slump- has
caused sales-tax collections to lag
behind forecasts for the year.
Money in reserves could
cover the shortfall, but legislators
wanted to cut the budget this fall
instead of waiting until the regu-
lar session in the spring.
The decision means that law-
makers are not likely to meet
before the state's no-fault auto
insurance coverage, known as
Personal Injury Protection,
expires Oct. 1. The law requires
vehicle owners to carry a mini-
mum .$10,000 personal injury
protection coverage.
The current no-fault statute
requires drivers to purchase


$10,000 of personal injury pro-
tection, known as PIP, which
covers medical bills for a driver
and passengers involved in an
auto accident.
The medical bills are paid up
front, without assessing which
the driver is at fault in causing the
accident. The PIP coverage also
includes benefits for lost wages
and funerals.
The no-fault law also makes
buying auto insurance in Florida
mandatory. To register a car in
Florida, drivers must buy a mini-

mum of $10,000 in personal
injury protection and $10,000 in
property damage liability cover-
age that pays for damage to
another person's car or property.
If a driver cancels his auto
policy or lets it lapse, the Florida
Department of Highway Safety
and Motor Vehicles is-notified by
the insurer. A driver's license is
canceled if there's no insurance.
A recent legal opinion from the
DMV contends that property dam-
age coverage would still be
required for drivers to register
vehicles and proof of that insur-
ance would be required when driv-
ers are involved in an accident. But
otherwise, there is no real enforce-
ment mechanism in the various
laws the govern auto insurance on
the state books right now.
Agents are worried that with-
out a specific requirement for
drivers to buy auto insurance,
many wouldn't do it.

No-fault's sunset is

big fault of Legislature

If you thought Florida's Legislature sometimes falls victim to
skewed priorities, you'd have no better. case as proof than the
impending fumble over no-fault insurance.
Just in case you haven't been following the.story, Florida's
mandatory no-fault insurance law sunsets Oct. 1.
The Legislature knew it was coming but failed to find a com-
promise between the House and Senate earlier this year when
they met in regular session.
And a special session for Sept. 18 to deal with the state's
impending budget shortfall has been postponed.
So any hope the no-fault problem could be resolved during
that same session appears dashed on the rocks of big egos run-
ning the two legislative bodies.
Unless some last-minute rescue effort is successful, Florida
will become the only state without a mandatory no-fault insur-
ance law and drivers could find themselves exposed in ways
they haven't yet calculated.
Figures show nearly 4 million drivers in Florida now carry
only the mandatory minimum coverage. Come Oct. 1, there
could be 4 million more chances accident victims will find the
other driver is not insured to pay for their medical treatment.
Under no-fault, each vehicle with a Florida tag has to carry
$10,000 in personal injury protection insurance, the portion slat-
ed to sunset, and $10,000 in property damage insurance. The
property-damage piece remains.
It almost sounds like fodder for a Jay Leno comedy routine.
Florida's squabbling lawmakers apparently don't care about pro-
tecting drivers, but heaven forbid repairs to wrecked cars won't
be covered by mandatory insurance.
What? Body shops are more important than bodies?
It's almost impossible to explain what brought us to the odd
juncture. Suffice it to say that critics of the no-fault law blame
so-called ambulance chasers for inflating medical costs by abus-
ing the system, running up big medical bills.
Florida's hospitals are lobbying furiously to get the current law
extended until fixes can be made. Otherwise, treating the unin-
sured just adds more unpaid accounts on their ledgers, passing
the burden at some point onto patients who have insurance
and pay their bills, or, onto taxpayers in those counties with tax-
payer-supported public hospitals.
The system is a mess and we don't see the current climate in
Tallahassee conducive to finding solutions.
Instead we get more turf wars between the House and Senate
and little pressure to fix what's broken.
It may well be time to begin looking for a clean sweep come
the next election cycle.

City needs to wait on marina boat slips


EDITOR:
Deputy Marathon City Manager C.J. Geotis
is quoted in the paper as outlining to the
Marathon City Council at its Aug. 28 meeting
plans to add 190 boat slips to Boot Key Harbor,
capable of accommodating up to 55- and 60-
foot yachts as well as a dozen retail stores.
At this point in time, according to the quote
from harbormaster Richard Tanner, "...for the
next fiscal year, the marina is projected to make
a profit of $61,000 after years of losing money."
I do not believe adding slips at this time is in
the best interest of Boot Key Harbor, the City
Marina or the city of Marathon.
Currently as Geotis now knows, the infra-


structure is not in place. And will not be for sev-
eral months, or even a year or so.
As'the City Marina is projected to make a
profit of $61,000 next year, it would appear it
would be in the best interest of the city to stop
further development and perform a total review
of the marina site plan.
There is now "breathing room" allowing time
to make adjustments. As city leaders now know,
there are issues that must be addressed and
should be addressed before further development
takes place.

Trash-can credits next for Islamorada?


EDITOR:
It seems Islamorada's trash rules are as
loosey-goosey as everything else the village
does. Onyx Waste Services whined and the
Village Council gave them a cash register
on the back of the trucks.
Let's see, we now will be restricted to six
32-gallon cans, six bundles or a combina-
tion of both per stop: Let's hope you have
32-gallon cans. I have one large truck-lift
.can; oops, that can is 96 gallons. So I can
use one big can and three small cans. I also
have two 50-gallon cans so the math gets
tricky.


Now we have to decide who and how
they will keep up with the extra-charge
cans. It appears that the size of property
plays no part in this shakedown. I can see it
now; residents will be trading trash-can
credits. That brings up the point, will we get
credit for days we have no trash?
The more I think of it, they will need a
computer to track charges. The more I think
of it, this is a stupid situation. The more I
think of it, I get mad.

Constitutional issue at stake during trial


EDITOR:
On July 16, 40 people's lives were inter-
rupted as they were called to serve as
prospective jurors in Monroe County Circuit
Court in Marathon. The case was state of
Florida vs. Richard Rae. The state presented
the case that Mr. Rae was in felony posses-
sion of marijuana (less than an ounce), and
won.
I, as an observer, feel the jurors should be
applauded for their integrity, time, diligence
and close attention to the facts presented to
them during that ordeal.
But the state has decided to persecute an
individual who was just sleeping at home
when they walked in to his home, without
cause, and found the substance. This puzzles
me.
The state took a harmless human being
into the courtroom on felony charges and
spent public tax dollars, jurors' time and wit-
ness expenses as a result of their violating
his civil liberties.
Specifically to the seven jurors who were
chosen to serve, I would like them to know
that if it seemed like this case was a total
waste of time and money, they are not far off
the mark. It is a part of a procedure that the
state insists upon going through in order to
preserve its presumed right to enter the
homes of local citizens and employees of
this community while they are sleeping with-
out permission or cause.


This trial was merely a step in the process
to determine if in fact the illegal search and
seizure amendment to the Constitution of
these United States was violated.
To the citizens of Marathon, or Florida or
America for that matter, do you want the law
to have permission to walk into your home
without knocking, without cause while you
are asleep and the next thing you know you
are sitting in front of a jury of your peers
defending yourself?

Big Pine, No Name need own voice


EDITOR:
Our county has sold us down
the river without as much as a
paddle. It's time for Big Pine Key
to move forward as one body of
people with one voice. Most
would say right up front this
would cost too much in taxes.
Not true.
Small areas such as Big Pine
and No Name keys that have very
different needs such as our Key
deer, marsh rabbits, indigo snakes
and all endangered species under
U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service con-
trol, along with the Department of
Transportation and building issues,
have the ability to have a collec-
tive voice as to what is called a
special-purpose district within a
state and county.
This special-purpose district
can be anything we, as property
owners of Big Pine and No Name,
want it to be. We appoint or elect a
group of officials that governs
only our island and attends to its
special needs and requirements
only. We simply have an election
vote count of every property
owner on the two islands, vote in a
governing body, and start to take
care of our own business instead
of sharing county time with no
resolve, understanding we don't
need to pay anyone we elect.
A true democracy for the Big
Pine and No Name people by and
for the Big Pine and No Name


people as it was meant to be in our
Constitution.
Let's have some real input and
discuss the possibilities and where
the future truly lies. Even simpler,
or in addition to, a discussion
forum could be started with a Web
message board to allow open pub-
lic input from signed property
owners, an easy thing to do with
today's Web.

Audit bug board
EDITOR:
I agree that an outside audit of
Florida Keys Mosquito Control
District spending is in order. Not
only do the employees use
Mosquito Control vehicles travel-
ing to and from work, they also use
them for persoflal use.
I can't begin to tell you how
many times I've seen one at
Walgreens Liquor, Publix and the
social clubs around Marathon, and
that's on Sunday.
Then there's also the cowboying
around in the Mosquito Control
helicopters, but that's another
issue.
Yes, indeed, an audit is well
overdue.

This is the new Grace Jones Daycare Center. You can tell the kids enjoy it.


Grace Jones' new facility almost complete


EDITOR:
On behalf of our volunteer board of direc-
tors, center staff and most importantly the
children and families we serve, all of us
committed to the Grace Jones Daycare
Center express our heartfelt gratitude to you,
the unsung heroes of our community, for
helping us move closer toward our goal of
making the dream of a new state-of-the-art
facility for the children of our community a
reality. Because of you, we will soon be
open.
When Hurricane Wilma destroyed the
Grace Jones Daycare Center in 2005, the
Middle Keys community met the challenge
by donating their time, talents and money
toward a capital campaign so our children
could continue to receive necessary educa-
tional skills in a caring, nurturing and safe
environment in preparation for their elemen-
tary education. Our new facility is almost
complete and though we are closer to our
goal, $400,000 is still needed.


As our children represent the future of the
Middle Keys, we are asking for your contin-
uing support through fundraisers and further
donations. We welcome and invite you to
visit the new Grace Jones Community Center
located on 41st Street in Marathon. When
you do, you will see that after 51 years of
continuous service to children, the vision of
Grace Jones remains true. It continues to
provide quality education for our Keys chil-
dren while nurturing their minds, bodies, and
spirits.
We are humbled by the generosity and
support. Thank you for helping us move for-
ward toward reaching our goal. With contin-
ued help, we can raise the $400,000 for this
much-needed facility. Please visit your Grace
Jones Daycare Center and tell everyone how
lucky we are to live in such a caring commu-
nity.

Encourage business development


EDITOR:
In response to John Reese's letter on
increasing taxes on the businesses, let's com-
pare apples to apples, OK?
The Florida Keys do not have the same
economy as Nevada. Period. I've been to
Nevada many times and their residents do not
deal with the same problems the Keys do.
Businesses invest a lot of money and take
a big gamble in the Keys. Hurricanes, lack of
tourists and sumner drop-off can and do
affect their bottom lines. One year they'll do
great and the next not so great, but they keep
their drnnr nnpn and ne.nln e.mnlnved


In Maine, they do have higher taxes for
businesses. And because of this, Maine is last
in growth,' high unemployment and drug use;
and young people are forced to leave their
homes to find jobs in other states. The high
taxes have also caused big companies to
leave, which made the property taxes double
or worse. It's a sad state, and you can see the
results of high taxes wherever you look.
Businesses bring jobs and money into an
area, and should be encouraged, not discour-
aged.

Millions already in line


SUMMIT / From 1

"The state of Florida has
already given $48 million,"
Saunders told the group of may-
ors and staffers that attended the
summit. "We're talking, about a
bunch of money here. Every dol-
lar we get from state and federal
government is one less dollar the
folks here are not going to have
to pay."
Liz Wood, sewer projects


manager for Monroe County,
explained that although the over-
all tab is now estimated at $662
million, only $400 million of that
is unfunded.
She said grant funding already
secured adds up to more than $31
million. Another $12.7 million
will be generated by special tax-
ing districts the county estab-
lished. Sales tax will raise anoth-
er $61 million and "local rev-
enues" will raise some $151 mil-
lion.

Card Sound changes
on DOT's horizon

Florida Department of
*Transportation has planned a
public project-status meeting to
help develop alternatives to
reconfigure the intersection of
Card Sound Road and County
Road 905 in North Key Largo.
Many local officials want the
intersection, which is now has a
hard turn and stop light, to get a
soft.curve so traffic doesn't have
to stop in the event of a hurri-


cane.
The purpose of the meeting is
to update the community on the
status of the project and present
preliminary concepts being stud-
ied. The public will have an
opportunity to provide input.
The session is at 6 p.m. Sept.
24.at the Key Largo library, mile
marker 101.4 oceanside, in
Trade Winds Plaza.
The project development and
environment study for the inter-
section is of Card Sound Road is
in its early stages and is expect-
ed to continue through 2010.


Wood is working with all the
municipalities to finalize their
requests in order to meet the tight
timeline of the interim project.
"The accuracy of these num-
bers is imperative in garnering
support," said John Iglehart,
south district director for the
Florida Department of
Environment Protection. "Things
are already moving" in
Tallahassee.
"It will be a hard time for us to
get money from the state of
Florida," Saunders said. "But
we're an Area of State Critical
Concern in the middle of a
national marine sanctuary."
Marathon Mayor Chris Bull
said he's spending a lot of time in
Washington lobbying for federal
funds to get the sewers done.
Years ago, Congress approved
sending $100 million to the Keys
for sewers. Over the past five
years, however, only some $6
million of that has been allocated.
"Now we want to put the
funding request in the president's
budget," Bull said. "This is an
economic restoration and we
need to look at it that way. We
generate some of the problem
here; we can't just blame it on
Big Sugar on the mainland."

rate lower than they saw in

venes at 5:05 Wednesday at the

county budget.
"We've been able to meet the
legislatively required 5 percent
rollback and do that without los-
ing any filled positions," County
Administrator Tom Willi said.
"We're not letting anyone go."
A state tax reform bill passed
in June requires local govern-
ments to create budgets for 2007-
08 lower than the current year by
anywhere from 3 percent to 7


percent.
Monroe County is expected to
roll back the budget to 5 percent
less than the $83.7 million the
county is expected to collect this
year in property taxes to run gov-
ernment day to day.
In July, the County Com-
mission approved a tentative
budget of $373 million that
includes capital money, state rev-
enue sharing, grants and the like
- with an aggregate millage rate
of 2.88, which would mean the
average county taxpayer would
expect to pay $288 for every
$100,000 of assessed taxable
property value. The aggregate is
an average, however, and indi-
vidual tax rates vary depending
on location.
Willi suspended the county's
budget director, Sal Zappulla, in
August and hired the accounting
firm of Peter Rosasco to finalize


the budget. Willi said the process
has run smoothly.
"They were able to basically
just watch over my shoulder and
support what I was feeling,"
Willi said. "They agree we're on
a good course and have a good
footing."
Willi said part of
Wednesday's presentation will
be a plan to build up, over the
next five to seven years, a "rainy-
day fund.
"We want to set aside a fund
of $18 million to $20 million,"
he said. "Right now we have
about $9.5 million in our
reserves."
Zappulla had warned that
meeting the Legislative rollback
might mean laying off some
county staff.
"There are vacant, unfilled
positions that will remain
unfilled," Willi said. "But we are
able to maintain our current
staffing levels."

City gets under rollback


Nearly $80,000
more needs
to be sliced
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The .atest. Marathon budget
numbers for next.fiscal year put
Marathon at 8.35 percent below
rollback, well below the state
mandate of 5 percent and appar-
ently well within range of coun-
cil's 10 percent request.
The proposed millage rate of
1.4505, or $1.4505 per $1,000 of
assessed property value, is lower
than all Keys municipalities out-
side of Key Colony Beach.
At that rate, the owner of a
$300,000 home would pay
$435.15 in property taxes.
City staff presented the latest
figures to council at. a Tuesday
workshop at the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office airplane hangar.
Finance Director Peter
Rosasco said an additional


$79,265 must be shaved from the
budget to reach 10 percent
beyond rollback, but that he is
pleased with the current numbers.
"I think right now we have a
good budget; 8.35 [percent
beyond rollback] is a good
accomplishment," Rosasco said.
"You'll look long and hard to find
other governments accomplish-
ing what Marathon is. Most are
struggling to get to the mandate
and we're going beyond that."
Rosasco said he credits coun-
cil for heeding his advice about
replenishing reserves following
damaging storm seasons in 2005
and 2006.-He said that is the rea-
son the city is able to now budget
so far under rollback.
He also credited staff depart-
ment heads, whom he says have
taken the need to reduce their
budgets seriously. Each was
directed to cut 5 percent, but many
have gone well beyond that figure.
The City Clerk's Office cut its
budget $87,059 (33 percent) from


last year, while building cut
$84,615 (13 percent) and plan-
ning cut $107,851 (15 percent).
"We've been able to put this
budget together without eliminat-
ing any services to the citizens,"
Rosasco added.
The majority of that money is
likely to be accounted for by
voiding a $50,000 annual con-
tract with the Middle Keys
Community Land Trust.
City Manager Mike Puto rec-
ommended to council the con-
tract not be renewed at a recent
special meeting, though Land
Trust Administrator Rick Casey
is expected to appear before
council Tuesday to argue against
that decision.
Rosasco said total expendi-
tures at the moment are
$9,353,849, but could decrease if
the budget meets 10 percent
below rollback.
The City Council holds public
budget hearings at 5:30 p.m.
Thursday and Sept. 20 at the
Marathon Government Center.


Board rehires attorney Collins


By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.com


Monroe County School Board
members said they're confident
in their outside law firm despite
hiring a veteran School District
attorney to provide backup legal
services.
At its Aug. 28 meeting, the
board approved a $25,000 con-
tract for attorney Richard
Collins.
SThe district is also represent-
ed by statewide law firm Vernis
& Bowling. The board will dis-
cuss renewing that contract,
which expires this month, at a
meeting in Marathon on
Tuesday.
Board members said in inter-
views this week that the school
system needs help because
Shawn Smith stopped represent-
ing the board to become Key
West city attorney in 2006.
Board Chairman Andy.
Griffiths told The Reporter that
board members feel "very com--
fortable with Mr. Collins," who
he called "one of the most
respected school attorneys in the
state of Florida."
Griffiths said the board's con-
fidence in Collins, who worked


for the district for more than 15
years, does not translate into a
lack of confidence in Vernis &
Bowling. "We have full confi-
dence in our current legal team,"
he said.
The board's legal workload
had been shared by Smith and
attorney Dirk Smits of Vemis &
Bowling.
"When Shawn Smith left, we
needed a backup to Smits," board
member Steve Pribramsky said.
"Collins has just a vast amount
of experience in school district
law, and he was available, and
we wanted to tap that."
Both Pribramsky and
Griffiths said that in addition to
providing legal counsel, Collins
will use his expertise to farm out
legal work and get the best deal
for the district's dollar.
Pribramsky said he supports
keeping Vemis & Bowling on the
*payroll, but he wants to keep dis-
trict legal fees as low as possible.
"I think we have to look at the
Vemis & Bowling contract and
tweak it," Pribramsky said. "I
don't want to eliminate Vemis &
Bowling, I just don't want to
double pay. We need to get the


biggest bang for our buck."
Pribramsky said that under
the current contract, Vemis &
Bowling is required, to have a
representative at every board
meeting.- Collins would now
attend the meetings as well, so
costs in that area could be cut, he
said.
Vemis & Bowling is contract-
ed at $8,000 per month for about
80 hours of work.
Collins worked as Monroe
County's attorney from 2002
until 2006, when commissioners
voted 3-2 to buy out the remain-
der of his contract citing a
decline in his health. Collins said
he had a bad cold that persisted
for several weeks, and that his
dismissal was really due to dis-
agreements between him and
then-county Mayor Sonny
McCoy..
Collins' attorneys said at the
time.that in discussing his health
publicly, commissioners might
have violated new provisions in
the Health Insurance Portability
and Accountability Act. The
actions of commissioners who
voted to dismiss Collins were
probed by the State Attorney's
Office for Sunshine Law viola-
tions, but no charges were filed.

Teachers look for pay raises


Union chief
says salaries
lag inflation
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbumie@keysreporter.com


With the school year already
begun, the Monroe County
School Board and the teachers'
union have yet to agree on a con-
tract.
Tuesday, the board will vote in
principal on whether to approve a
salary schedule allowing teachers-
a 1 percent pay increase, plus a
yearly step that averages between
1 and 2 percent.
The board has a workshop-
starting at 10. a.m. at Stanley
Switlik Elementary School in
Marathon, followed by a 6 p.m.
public budget hearing.
United Teachers of Monroe
President Leon Fowler said
approval of the salary increases


would be merely a formality, and
that negotiations for an updated
contract are not complete.
Fowler said he can't disclose
the union's bottom line, but he's
hopeful a new contract will
reflect the rise in the cost of liv-
ing in the Keys.
"We're looking for a good
cost-of-living increase plus our
normal step," Fowler said. "The
steps we have are not anything
lucrative, they're just there to
acknowledge the number of years
a teacher's had in the district. In
most cases, we have to negotiate
with the district each year based
on the cost of living."
According to Fowler, the U.S.
experienced about 2.9 percent
inflation between June 2006 and
June 2007. He said the increase is
even higher in Monroe County
because the cost of housing is
much higher.
Fowler said that based on that

Body found behind
Lorelei restaurant

The Monroe County Sheriff's
Office says detectives are looking
into the death of a man whose
body was found Wednesday
morning in the water behind the
Lorelei restaurant in Islamorada.
Detectives say they believe
they know who he is but the con-
dition of the body prevented sim-
ply identification; further investi-
gation is being done. There were


no signs of foul play but an
autopsy will be done to determine
the cause of death.
While his death appears to be
natural or accidental, it has been a-
deadly summer in the Upper
Keys.
Since the beginning of July,
authorities have investigated
three Key Largo homicides. In
two of them, suspects are charged
with murder. The third case
remains open. And over Labor
Day weekend, an Orlando
snorkeler died off Islamorada.


rate of inflation, teachers would
not benefit from a 1 percent
increase in pay.
"The top teacher with a mas-
ter's degree would get about a
$700 increase because they don't
have a step," Fowler said. "That
certainly will not keep you up
with inflation:"
Board member Steven
Pribramsky said the district is
doing its best to maintain com-
petitive teacher salaries.
"We're trying to make a lot of
things happen here without firing
people," Pribramsky said. "I'm
satisfied with it. I'm pleased with
what I think we can provide our
teachers for just this year."
Monroe County is one of the
few districts in Florida that pays
teachers with a bachelor's degree
and no experience more than
$40,000 annually to start.

The final proposed millage for
2007-08 is 2.95, or $295 per
$100,00 of taxable assessed prop-
erty value. The current millage

The proposed operating budg-
et is $92:4 million; the current
one is $93 million.

FWC might motor up Keys

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


State marine law-enforcement
officers eventually could move
their Florida Keys headquarters
from the state office building in
Marathon to Windley Key, but it
won't happen soon.
The current state budget allo-
cates $130,000 to the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission to begin planning
for a new building at the former
Estes Fish Camp property near
mile marker 84.
"We've wanted to build an
office there and applied for
money for the last two years,"
said Lt. Col. Jim McCallister,
deputy director of the FWC's
Division of Law Enforcement.
"This year, they gave us
$130,000," he said. "That will go
for things like site planning and
permitting.... We don't know yet
what size office we can build
there."
This year the agency request-
ed $1.9 million from the state
budget for the Windley Key
office project.
Even the $130,000 that was
approved during the spring leg-
islative session is not certain.
The FWC acquired the former
fish camp several years ago to
ensure waterfront dockage for the
agency's patrol boats. The loca-
tion near lies on. Whale Harbor
Channel, which affords access to
both the Atlantic Ocean and
Florida Bay.
The law-enforcement docks
also lie within sight of the
Sandbar anchoring spot which
on occasion becomes over-

agency doesn't have enough money to fully develop it.


whelmed with boaters looking to
party, requiring a large-scale
police presence..
In conceptual discussions for
the new office, McCallister said,
agency leaders envisioned the
Windley Key building as a new
Monroe County headquarters for
FWC.
"We potentially could leave
Marathon," McCallister said.
"Right now, we're paying about
$71,000 annually for rent. It
would be better to have our own
building."
.That will depend largely on
whether a building on Windley
Key can be big enough to accom-
modate all headquarters opera-
tions, he said.
Conceptual planning also pro-
posed a second-floor 'space for
sleeping quarters, similar to those
in the new Key Largo fire station,
so FWC officers stationed in the


costly Keys could live elsewhere.
"That idea fell through pretty
quickly," McCallister said.
Many newly certified FWC
officers assigned to the Keys
soon request transfers because
the local cost of living exceeds
their salaries.
The local FWC contingent has
long relied on a core group of offi-
cers who enjoy living in the Keys
and purchased homes before real-
estate prices skyrocketed.
Many of those officers are
starting to retire. "Replacing
them is getting harder and hard-
er," McCallister said.
The Windley Key property
has an old fish-camp building
suitable only for some storage.
"There is no way that [wooden
building] can be made useful,"
McCallister said.
Officers use a refurbished
trailer at the site for office space.

New draft spurs inquiry


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Halfway through a lengthy
meeting that could eventually
shape the fate of the Keys water-
front, the county's Marine and
Port Advisory Committee discov-
ered it was looking at an outdated
version of a proposed ordinance.
And worse, the committee
chairman expressed concerns about
how language proposed by devel-
opers wound up in a third draft not
yet seen by the committee.
The committee, which advises
the Monroe County Commission
on marine-related issues, met
Tuesday to go over an ordinance
aimed at giving incentives to
property owners. to maintain
working waterfront and slow the
redevelopment of the waterfront
into residential properties.
The ordinance is scheduled to
go to the County Commission at
its Sept. 19 meeting.
"I am concerned about the
process as I've seen it here,"
committee Chairman Ben
lannotta said. "At our meeting,
we started out discussing version
two and stumbled on the fact that
the staff had written a version


three. Shouldn't all of this be
above board? I'm very concerned
about how that language from the
developers got added in."
lannotta says the proposal,
labeled version two, incorporates
some specific language proposed
by developers.
For example, he said, one
addition suggested the county
"provide opportunities for and
encourage development agree-
ments and interlocal agreements
governing the use of public and
private waterfront lands which
balance evolving local regional
interests and needs, property
rights. and the goals, objectives
and policies of the comprehen-
sive Plan."
"If version two with all that
color-coded wording from the
developers were .passed,"
lannotta said, "you might as well
turn the keys of the county over
and let the developers take over."
County Marine Resources
Coordinator Rich Jones, who is
pulling together the proposals to
preserve the waterfront, did not
return calls Friday.
Iannotta said that although the


difference between various ver-
sions of the proposed law may
seem like a technicality, he's
afraid language proposed by
developers may have been insert-
ed in the proposal, language that
may end up being approved by
the County Commission.
"This waterfront [ordinance]
will set the character of the Keys
for decades to come," he said.
In July, the county Planning
Commission unanimously
approved a resolution with lan-
guage it expected would be used
in the proposal coming back to
the County Commission.
Planning Commissioner
Sherry Popham, after reading all
of the documents, fired an e-mail
off to lannotta:
"You should also be aware that
version two and version three,
which you were presented for dis-
cussion, are nothing like what the
Planning Commission unani-
mously approved," she wrote.
County Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy attended Tuesday's
meeting and said she's concerned
there were changes made to the
proposal after the Planning
Commission's approval.

McPherson wants back on


Mayor booted
from TDC for
missing meetings
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.cbm

Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson wants his position
on the county's Tourist Develop-
ment Council back.
McPherson was surprised to
discover that several missed
meetings cost him his seat on the
TDC as representative of Key
West.
The Monroe County Com-
mission meets at 5 p.m. Monday
in special session at the
Marathon Government Center. It
will decide then whether to put
McPherson back in his position.
"[McPherson] has requested
that he be reappointed," County
Attorney Suzanne Hutton
explained in a memo to the com-
mission, "since he would like to
continue to serve on the TDC
and he was not informed prior to
the absence ... that only a death
in the immediate family consti-
tutes an excuse for absence from


a TDC meet-
ing."

Misses three
McPHERSON consecutive
meetings or
four within one fiscal year.
McPherson missed four.
SHe said three of the four
absences had to do with city
business, one for a city budget
meeting and two others while he
was meeting with federal offi-
cials in Atlanta and in
Washington, D.C.
Hutton's memo did not
explain the fourth absence.
In August, the commission
approved several appointments
to the TDC.
Jay Marzella was named by
Commissioner Dixie Spehar to
replace Christina Weinhofer,
who served on the TDC since
May 1999. Mayor Mario Di
Gennaro named Freddy Varela
to replace Key West hotelier


Matt Babich, who served on the
board since October 2000.
Marzella owns Parmer's
Place on Little Torch Key.
Varela works at Historic Tours
of America
Also on tap Monday:
Plans to schedule closed
sessions with county attorneys
to discuss several lawsuits,
including a long-standing tak-
ings lawsuit filed by the owners

call the Galleon Bay Resort; and
another -suit brought by two
environmental groups that has
stalled the implementation of the
county's new tier land-mapping
system.

Council OKs sewer fees


By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.com


Islamorada residents will pay
more for trash pickup starting
Oct. 1, while some will see small-
er assessments for stormwater
and wastewater programs.
At its meeting Thursday, the
Islamorada Village Council
approved charging $295.02 per
property for trash collection and
approved a new contract with
Onyx Solid Waste Services ,for
$1.1 million, 10 percent more
than its current contract.
The new contract limits resi-
dents to six trash containers per
collection. Those with more con-
tainers must purchase tags and
pay $2.25 per container per week.
The council approved an $8
per residence assessment for
stormwater treatment planning,


down from $62 per residence.
Homes on private roads, where
many residents have already
installed stormwater drainage
systems, will also be assessed.
The council also approved two
sewer assessments at the meet-
ing.
Residences and businesses,
except those on North Plantation
Key, will pay $42 each for waste-
water planning for the fiscal year
beginning Oct. 1.
In assessment notices mailed
Aug. 16, businesses were asked
to foot 41 percent of the $358,737
planning costs, or $496 each. The
council cut the assessment to $42
each, which will raise $158,000
less for wastewater planning.

Land Trust to plead case


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Middle Keys Community
Land Trust Administrator Rick
Casey is expected to appear
before the Marathon City
Council at its regularly scheduled
Tuesday meeting to defend
against a recent decision to cut
ties with the group.
City Manager Mike Puto rec-
ommended to the council at a
special meeting last Thursday
that the group's $50,000 annual
contract, which expires in 2009,
not be renewed. He said the con-
tract "has not been productive"
and that "it is clear the resources
of the Trust are stressed."
Casey said the Land Trust
handles "anything to do with
affordable housing as directed by
the city." But its primary function
is compliance monitoring,
whereby the Land Trust tracks
homes deed-restricted affordable
to ensure they comply with those
restrictions.
Puto told the Keynoter the city
is required to give the Land Trust
60 days notice prior to terminat-
ing the contract. He said Planning
Director Fred Gross is expected
to make a presentation as well.
Gross said previously the city
was looking for someone that
could handle affordable housing
issues but the Land Trust "didn't
live up to the expectations we had."
"If we can do it in-house and


save $50,000, then so be it," Puto
said.
Casey could not be reached
for comment, but said previously
he was disappointed by the city's
decision.
Tuesday's meeting will be at
5:30 p.m. at the Marathon
Government Center. Other agen-
da items include:
An ordinance for the adop-
tion of a system by which the city
will codify its ordinances.
Residents will be able to access a
link at www.municode.com,
making it easier to access, city
code information.
A resolution authorizing the
city manager to contract with
Weiler Engineering to comprise
beach parking and road improve-
ment plans for Sombrero Beach
Road, from Avenida Primiceria to
the end of the road.
Puto said the plans would be
done in the hopes that the Florida
Department of Transportation will
assist the city with the project.
A resolution dealing with
the city's interlocal agreement
with the Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority for due diligence
inspections of the Little Venice
wastewater treatment plant.
Puto said the inspections are
being done prior to a decision by
council whether to acquire the
property from the Aqueduct
Authority.

Landowner warns of lawsuit


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Boot Key parcel owners and
representatives were present at a
special meeting to discuss plans
for the Boot Key Bridge, but had
little to say when it came to what
percentage of the proposed repair
they would pay.
Talks to hash that percentage
out never got off the ground
Thursday at the Marathon
Garden Club, as the City Council
voted in favor of conducting an
appraisal of the island's value
before discussing assessments.
"I don't have enough informa-
tion to make an intelligent deci-
sion. Don't ask me to make a
decision when we don't have any
of the numbers," Joe Nascone
said. He owns Keys Radio
Group, which is headquartered
on the island.
"I think it is impossible to
come up with a number; my
client doesn't even know what he
can do out there," attorney John
Wolfe said.
He represents the Mangrove,
Azurite and Perigrin corpora-
tions, who own the vast majority
of the island's roughly 900 acres.


All three corporations share a
common Fort Lauderdale
address.
Maps of the island show most
of the land they own is environ-
mentally sensitive.
The appraisal will not only
provide Boot Key's three parcel
owners a better understanding of
the costs they might incur, but
also give the city an idea of its
liability in the event the council
decides to pursue another option
with the bridge.
State Department of Trans-
portation bridge engineer Frank
Guyamier again appeared before
council to outline various
options. He said the bridge could
be removed at a cost of $2 mil-
lion, or the draw portion only for
$800,000.
Removing the draw portion of
the bridge would assure boating
access to Boot Key Harbor.
Nascone warned the city clos-
ing the bridge would be viewed
as a taking and said it would be
sued in the event it was closed.
"Seven or $8 million is a small
number compared to what a tak-
ing will be," he said, referring to


the current price tag to renovate
the bridge. "The people that are
involved in the property will go
to the extreme."
The bridge's repair, which was
previously estimated at $5 million,
has now ballooned to at least $7
million. Figures as high as $10 mil-
lion were floated at the meeting.
"If we knew what the future of
Boot Key is, maybe repairing the
bridge would be a good idea, but
we don't know. I'm inclined to
say let's wait for the appraisal
before we do anything,"
Councilman Don Vasil said.
Several council and audience
members suggested closing the
bridge and providing ferry service
to the island is the best solution.
Businessman Bruce Popham
said "it is critical we protect the
property owners" but that "you
have to be crazy to fix that bridge."
"A' good alternative here is a
ferry service back and forth to the
island. I'm willing to ... use my
property to provide" it, he said.
Popham owns the Marathon Boat
Yard, which is on the harbor.
City Attorney John Herin said
the appraisal would take a mini-
mum of three months and no
longer than six to complete.

Spirit lifts off,


but it's only a test


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Officials at Spirit Airlines
say they were just taking advan-
tage of Key West's exceptional-
ly short runway, but local offi-
cials hope it means Monroe
County is in the running when it
comes to bringing in a new car-
rier.
Wednesday, a Spirit Airbus
did some practice landings and
takeoffs at Key West
International Airport.
Monroe County has submit-
ted a proposal to the company
hoping to entice the Fort
Lauderdale-based airline to
begin running out of both Key
West and Marathon.
"We made a proposal to
Spirit to serve both Key West
and.Marathon," county Airports
Director Peter Horton said.
"Spirit put out a [request for
proposals]. We responded but
we have not heard anything."
However, Horton said, the
company did call him Tuesday
asking if it could run some sim-
ulation flights in Key West.
"We were just doing short
runway ops testing," Spirit
spokeswoman Alison Russell


said. "It's not a big deal, just
short landings and takeoffs. Key
West just happens to have the
shortest runway in South
Florida, and by that I mean less
than 5,000 feet."
The runway is 4,801 feet.
Spirit's RFP says the compa-
ny is looking to add 10 new des-
tinations to.its offerings over the
next year. Horton said if Spirit
were to take on the Keys, the
Airbus is likely the craft it
would use.
Adding Spirit in Marathon
would be especially beneficial
to the county since Delta
Airlines pulled out in August.
Under contract to run flights
between Florida Keys Marathon
Airport and Atlanta, Delta
stopped flights Sept. 3.
Delta cited "operational diffi-
culties with the airport's 5,000-
foot runway," which allowed the
carrier to fill only 35 of 50 total
seats before weight restrictions
affected the plane's ability to
take off.
Horton said he has no idea
when the county will hear
whether Spirit will accept the
county's proposal.

Absentee ballots roll in


More than 300

already returned
for city election
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Absenteeism has little to do
with absentee ballots nowadays,
according to Monroe County
Supervisor of Elections Harry
Sawyer. It's all about convenience.
And with Key West mayoral,
City Commission and Utility
Board elections less than a month
away, there are plenty of reasons
voters should take advantage of
absentee and early voting, he says.
"We really promote absentee
voting," he said. "We do a pretty
large mail-out and then we have a
trickle-down effect they come
in more and more each day."
Sawyer is not alone in his per-
ception of the absentee ballot as
more of a "convenience ballot,"
as many election supervisors
across the country promote the
voting technique, he said.
After all, there is a lot that can
happen during Oct. 2 Election
Day to keep people from the
polls: tropical storms, hurricanes,
health issues, etc. Absentee bal-
lots ensure the voter's voice is
heard, Sawyer said, and the vot-
ers can avoid potentially long
Election Day lines.
As of 2 p.m. Friday, 325 city
ballots were returned of 1,754
mailed out.
"We have people dropping
them off all day long," he said.
"But the majority of them come
from the mail."
Absentee ballots are counted
on Election Day, but fickle voters
take note once they reach the
Supervisor of Elections Office on
Whitehead Street, nothing can be
changed on those ballots.
Sawyer said a new state statute
requires a voter's absentee ballot
to still be counted even if he or she
dies in the period of time between
when they mailed the ballot out
and Election Day voting from
the grave, so to speak.
According to Sawyer, skeptics
of absentee voting don't under-
stand the level of scrutiny each
ballot endures from the three-per-
son canvassing board.
The Key West canvassing
board comprises City Clerk Cheri
Smith and two city commission-
ers who are not running for city
office in the current election: Bill


Verge and Dan Kolhage were cho-
sen by the commission July 17.
Each signature on each ballot
is matched with those in the
Elections Office's computer
records of registered voters. If
dissimilarity is detected, phone
calls are made and research is
done perhaps the voter had a
stroke or an injured wrist or hand,
for example.
Usually, the number of ques-
tionable signatures stays below 20,
Sawyer said, and after investigat-
ing each signature, about 99 per-
cent of those ballots are counted.
Sawyer said election fraud is
not taken lightly. Voters who
attempt to forge an absentee bal-
lot or vote in a precinct other than
their own could face a third-


Assisted-living
facility also
up for discussion

The Hometown Political
Action Committee of Key West
hosts a second election forum
Monday at the Tropic Cinema,
416 Eaton St.
Candidates for the City
Commission and representatives
of the Florida Keys Assisted
Care Coalition will take ques-
tions from a panel comprising
Keynoter Editor Larry Kahn,
Island Radio 107.1-FM owner
Linda Russin and Hometown
PAC board member Jon Allen.
US1 Radio's Bill Becker will
moderate.
In addition to voting for com-
missioners, residents will vote in-
a binding referendum whether to
allow construction of a 135-unit
assisted-living facility on 5.3
acres at the Truman Waterfront.
If passed, the property would
be leased "to a qualified operator
or management company that
has not yet been selected, for a
period of 99 years for exclusive
use...," it reads.
Doors open at 5 p.m. for a
reception in the lobby. The
forum starts promptly at 5:30.
The referendum matter will take
about 40 minutes, followed by


degree felony charge.
"We will send [a ballot] to the
State Attorney's Office," he said.
Absentee ballots are no differ-
ent than regular ballots in appear-
ance. But their coding mandates
they cannot be placed through a
precinct voting machine.
SRegistered voters can vote
absentee at the Supervisor of
Elections Office until 7 p.m. Oct.
2. Mailed-in ballots must reach
530 Whitehead St. No. 101 by the
same day and time.
Early voting runs from Sept.
17 to Sept. 29 from 8:30 a.m. to
4:30 p.m. Monday through
Saturday at the same place. For
more details call 292-3416.
"Between the two early
voting and absentee we- can
get about 20 percent of votes
before the election." Sawyer said.

The owner of the Waterfront Market has backed out of a deal to renew his lease for 10 years,
citing the cost. City officials, however, say even with the increase to market rate, Buco Pantelis
would still be getting a good deal.


What now after Waterfront?


Planned closure
has some fearing
job futures
By PAMELA J. SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor

It's official Buco Pantelis
will soon close and walk away
from the Waterfront Market gro-
cery store he has owned for more
than 20 years on the waterfront in
Key West's Old Town.


In his wake are scores of
employees and long-time cus-
tomers left wondering how they
are going to make it without him
- and what kind of business will
take the market's place.
"What are we going to do
now? That's the question, and
it's sinking in on us," said
Richard Hatch, owner of the Blue
Heaven restaurant in Key West.
"It's a sad day."
Hatch said he has relied on


Pantelis for the majority of his
restaurant's fresh produce for 14
years. He says there is none better.
"He's got a huge semi truck
and he makes a couple trips each
week to Homestead," Hatch said.
"The produce is so fresh, and it's
local, and we can order it just the
way we like. Nothing compares
to Buco's tomatoes, or his blue-
berries and strawberries."

manager for the Key West Bight,

Nationwide dropping 41,600

Nationwide Insurance says it
will reduce its catastrophe-expo-
sure in Florida by dropping more
than 40,000 homeowner and
commercial property policies.
Nationwide will not renew
about 39,000 homeowner poli-
cies and 1,600 commercial prop-
erty policies starting January, the


Columbus, Ohio-based company
said in a prepared statement.
The company began notifying
affected policyholders this month
and the change will not affect this
hurricane season. Nationwide-
said it will have more than
176,000 homeowners policies
after the cuts.
"It's a tough choice.that we
have to make to ensure that
Nationwide Insurance of Florida
will be there for our customers in


the future," company spokesman
Eric Hardgrove said. "We're
managing our catastrophic
weather exposure."
Agents will work with affected
customers to help them move to
other carriers over the next sever-
al months, the company said.
Nationwide also plans to with-
draw its home fire insurance line.
Nationwide has said it paid
more than $1 billion in property
damage claims during 2004 and
2005, when eight hurricanes
affected the state.

City says proposal is fair


WATERFRONT / From 19

confirmed city officials received
a letter this week from Pantelis'
attorney, Ginny Stones, indicat-
ing the grocer would not sign a
10-year lease agreement he nego-
tiated with the city in July, and
would liquidate his business and
close Sept. 30.
Wilbarger said the letter cites
"the rising costs on all fronts, the
unstable labor market, and the
general downturn in the local
economy" as reasons for not
renewing the lease. In addition,
the letter says "significant rent
increases" and the "loss of lease
exclusivity and other traditional
lease enjoyments" were to blame
for Pantelis throwing in the towel.
In an earlier letter from Stones
to the city, this one Aug. 8,
Pantelis asked for a delay until


Oct. 1 for him to sign the agree-
ment, citing "several personal
matters which are directly related
to [Pantelis'] ability to enter into a
10-year obligation with the city."
The city granted that request.
Since then, Key West officials
had been waiting for Pantelis to
sign the lease.
Wilbarger explained that the
market portion of the Waterfront
Market had not had a rent
increase since 2001. Since then,
she said Pantelis paid a base rent
of $11,390 per month.
Under the new lease, his base
rent climbed to $15,136 per
month for an increase of $3,746
monthly. She said that breaks
down to a blended rate of $16.25
per square foot, which she called
"a very fair rate."
"Other tenants pay over $30 per
foot in the bight," Wilbarger said.
Since all tenants at the bight

have an annual 5 percent rent
increase, had Pantelis signed the
agreement in July as had been
previously arranged, his base rent
would have steadily risen to a
high in 2016 of $23,482.26 per
month, according to Wilbarger.
Wilbarger said rents in the
bight are based upon the market
rate, and calculating them is "an
art and a science and is determined
by what the market will bear."
Bight Board Chairman Ray
Capas said city ordinance requires
the board to collect the market
rate for properties on the Bight.
"You don't go to a textbook
and pull out a rate and say that's
it," Capas said. "There's a
detailed analysis of how they
came up with the rate."
The Waterfront Market is not
alone in seeing the city raise its
rent to market rate. Two years
ago, the Schooner Wharf Bar saw
its rent raised to more than
$230,000 annually from
$109,000.
The Waterfront Market's
seafood manager, Curtis
Knowles, said he and his co-
workers are concerned about
what the future holds.
"That unemployment line is
going to be pretty long," Knowles
said. "And I don't know what all
the restaurants are going to do
either. This is going to affect 40 to
50 restaurants, at least."
Knowles said he blames the
city for Pantelis' decision to close.
"I think the city is messing
with Buco and made the rent so
high they're running people out
of business. It's ridiculous,"
Knowles said. "All they want is
the money."
Wilbarger said she knows
some in the community are point-
ing accusing fingers at the Bight
Board for the Waterfront
Market's pending demise, but
said she believes Pantelis got a
fair shake.
"What more can you do for a
guy?" Wilbarger asked. "We gave
him almost 50 percent off market
rate, eliminated the competition
and gave him a 10-year deal.
"The city did everything they
could. We cannot subsidize pri-
vate enterprise."
Capas said until Sept. 30, the
door is still open'for Pantelis to
have "a change of heart" and
decide to stay.
Neither Pantelis nor Stones
returned repeated calls from the
Keynoter and Keys Sunday seek-
ing comments for this story.

National group holds Keys fundraiser for overseas troops

It started with.a lonely soldier
on duty during the early months of
the Iraq war.
Acquaintances started sending
letters and gifts to lift the spirits of
the soldier and his two buddies in
the 173rd Airborne, then far from
home.
Nearly four years later, volun-
teers with Forgotten Soldiers
Outreach support the nonprofit
organization that annually sends
out thousands of care packages to
U.S. troops stationed across the
globe.
"It's all theaters, not just Iraq
and Afghanistan," said Lynelle
Sue Chauncey, a founder and
executive director. "We want our
soldiers to receive a package
every month for as long as they're
deployed overseas."
Forgotten Soldiers Outreach
holds its first major Florida Keys
event Sunday at the Zane Gray
Lounge at the World Wide
Sportsman complex in
Islamorada.
Providing live music at the
benefit from 4 to 8 p.m. will be a
number of local musicians,
including Big Dick and the
Extenders, Dave Feder, Stereo
Underground, Baga Trix, John
Bartus and Iko Iko's Graham
Drout.
The day's special attraction
will be a collection of celebrity
bartenders such as state Rep. Ron

Rounding up the volunteer bar-
tenders for Sunday was a snap,
and local businesses have been
donating to the auctions, she said.
Forgotten Soldiers sends from
230 to more than 500 packages to
service men and women each
month. A typical box may contain
items often requested by soldiers:
hard-to-get toiletries, beef jerky
and other snacks, tube socks and
DVD movies.
'.Baby wipes are a real big
item," Chauncey said. "A lot of
these people are stationed in
remote areas where it's not easy to
take a bath. This is the only way
they can clean up a lot of times."
Soldiers are put on the list after
being nominated by friends or
family. Sometimes the organiza-
tion receives requests from sol-
diers themselves.
Forgotten Soldiers assisted
Palm Beach County students in
after-care programs to take up cor-
respondence with service mem-
bers stationed overseas.

Ferocious Donna is revisited


1.960 hurricane
destroyed much
of Florida Keys
The Matecumbe Historical
Trust is hosting a lecture about
Hurricane Donna at 6:30 p.m.
Thursday at the Islamorada
library, mile marker 82, across
from the Hurricane Monument.
Speaker Irving Eyster will
share a slide show and video of
one of the worst storms to hit our
islands the past century.
Hurricane Donna struck the
Keys in early September 1960.
Donna crossed the lower
Bahamas with 140 mph winds
and dumped 19 inches of rain. At
11 p.m. Sept. 9, the hurricane
crossed the Keys. The eye was
20 miles wide and reached just
above Marathon to Lower
Matecumbe, with winds at
Sombrero Light reaching 166
mph.
Marathon was more than 50
percent destroyed. The then-vil-
lage of Craig was missing.
Upper and Lower Matecumbe
were 90 percent destroyed.
Windley and Plantation keys


were in bad shape, as-was
Tavernier.
Approaches to three bridges
were gone and the Tea- Table
Relief Bridge had a 90-foot sec-
tion missing.
Two were reported dead in
the Islamorada area but the
storm had taken more than 150
lives before it moved into the
cold waters of Maine.
The lecture is free and open

reaches soccer


wins milestone


Lucas looking
for No. 401
against Panthers

Getting 400 wins as an Island
Christian coach satisfied boys'
soccer coach Robert Lucas -
but putting No. 401 in the books
Tuesday would be ever so
sweet.
Thursday, the Eagles moved
to 2-0 on the fall soccer season
with a 5-1 victory over visiting
St. Brendan. Charlie Marmitt
scored three goals for Island
Christian, and made the assist
on a fourth.
That sets the stage for
Tuesday's 4 p.m. home match
against longtime archrival
Princeton Christian.
Princeton's Panthers
advanced to the state semifinals
last year. In fall soccer (usually
played instead of football), all
participating Florida schools
compete in a single class.
"Whenever we play
-

[Princeton], it is the most excit-
ing game of the year," Lucas
said. "They will be the measur-
ing stick we will use to see
where we are."
St. Brendan learned
Thursday that despite a roster
with young players in spots, the
Eagles have plenty of veteran
experience to make them formi-
dable.
Marmitt put himself in posi-
tion to take "opportunistic"
shots at the Sabre net for his
first two goals, Lucas said.
"We have talked about the
characteristic of being a goal
scorer is simply seeing where
the ball will be and getting
there," Lucas said. "Charlie was
simply everywhere today."
Marmitt's third goal was on a
second-half penalty kick.

2 holes deny Dolphins

upset against Belen


Golf squad
falls to Wolverines,
Palmer's next up
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
golf team lost Wednesday
. against a strong Belen Jesuit
Preparatory School squad, 161
to 169.
Coach Dean Carrigan said
the team played solid on all
but two holes. It combined to
shoot five over par on the first
hole and nine over par on the
fifth.
Still. Carriaan said he was


pleased to see the team post its
lowest score in two years.
"We played a team that
going in was better than us,
but we played with them," he
said. "If we take away those
mistakes on those two holes,
we win and pull a pretty big
upset."
Senior Jay Hegland again
led the way for Marathon,
shooting a one-over 37 over
nine holes. He was followed
by Mike Kuck, 41; Josh
Gratton, 42; and J.P. McCabe,
49.

Wrapped in a towel, Key
West High School senior Luke
Knight waited for the long suc-
cession of swim-meet events to
wind down Wednesday in the
stifling heat of the aquatic cen-

He had already easily defeat-

the 50-vard freestyle with a


time of 22.89 seconds and in
the 100-yard butterfly in 55.35,
eclipsing the school record of
1:00 that had been held by
teammate Jake Brown.
For Knight, who later led the
Key West 200 freestyle team to
victory, it was just another day
on the water for a swimmer
who hopes to return to the state
meet.

Conchs running up the Keys


Key West takes
on the Dolphins
this Monday
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

When the Key West High
School cross-country team
opens the season, at 6 p.m.
Monday at Marathon, the
Conchs will unveil two new
coaches and a flock of promis-
ing runners.
Terence White has taken over
the boys' team and another long-
time local runner, Debra
Bertolini, will guide the girls.
The Conchs have been train-
ing at the Key West Golf Club
on a five-kilometer course
fraught with hills, thick grass
and clouds of gnats.
"It's one of the toughest
courses we want a real home-
field advantage," White said
Wednesday afternoon as the
Conchs milled around the club's
veranda waiting for lightning to
subside so a practice meet with
Coral- Shores could begin.
The boys will be led by soph-


more Zach Harden, the team's
No. 2 runner a year ago when he
set a school freshman record of
19 minutes 12 seconds. A natu-
ral runner with a competitive
edge, Harden "really enjoys the
hard work it takes to achieve
success," White said.
Harden ran the course
Wednesday in 20:12, finishing
second behind Coral Shores
senior Tyler Boban. "I've got to
start better," Harden said after
the race.
Cale Hartle will be the
Conchs' No. 2 runner, followed
by junior Vincent LeNeures,
who has cut minutes off his best
-times in practice. The fourth
spot is held by freshman Robert
Rupp, running for the first time.
White is waiting to see whom
will emerge as the No. 6 runner.
Six candidates, he said, are
within 30 seconds of one anoth-
er.
"We thought this was going
to be a rebuilding year, but this
is going to be an interesting
team," said White, who has run
a mile in 4:19.
The girls' team has 17 mem-


bers, the most in school history.
Returning are junior Olivia
Kent and senior Tyler
Buckheim, who were one-two in
most of the 2006 meets. They
set personal bests Kent
(21:48), Buckheim (22:09) at
last season's Flrunners.com
invitational in Tampa. Kent's
time was the second-fastest in
school history.
Other Conchs to watch
include senior Elizabeth King,
junior Ariana Bacle, sophomore
Paige Graham and freshman
Jayci Hall, who has pushed the
team's top six in workouts.
Bertolini, who has run 14
marathons, likes the cama-
raderie of her team. "They're
like sisters," she said. "It's like
having 17 coaches. They take
care of each other."
She gazed up at her runners
waiting impatiently on the
veranda.
"I really love teen-agers,
they're interesting people,"
Bertolini said. "This sport gives
them so much self-confidence
and inner strength. Girls at this
age dragging themselves out of
bed early in the morning to run a
5K...."

Westminster stumps Fins


The Warriors
'firing shdts
everywhere'
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
girls' volleyball team lost a
tough match Thursday against
district rival Westminster
Christian, 25-6, 25-15, 25-12.
"Before we knew, it they won
three straight games," Marathon
Coach Kevin Freeman said. "It
was a district game and we
always played them well, but
they were firing shots every-
where and we were shell-
shocked."
Freemani said this year's


Westminster squad is by far the
best he has seen them field in his
five years with the Dolphins.
Freeman has been stressing
team unity this season and said
he was proud of the way the
girls continued to play hard until
the last point of the match.
"The good thing is we stayed
together and our heads were up
and we were positive. That's the
one thing we can take from
this," Freeman said.
Senior Alexis Culver led the
Dolphins with two aces and two
kills. Freshman Kelly Struyf
pitched in with two kills as
well.
"Other than serving, she
passed really well," Freeman
said of Culver. "She was one of


the only ones who consistently
made good passes."
Freeman said junior Jeanette
Betancourt played well and did
not miss a single serve, some-
thing that plagued the team in a
loss to Miami Christian last
Friday.
"We didn't miss many
serves, which is the good news.
The bad news is we didn't serve
much," Freeman said. "We're
going to get ready for Palmer
[Trinity] and go back to the
drawing board."
Wednesday's matchup
against Palmer marks the first of
four straight home games for the
Dolphins (1-2), something
Freeman hopes will be a confi-
dence-booster for the team. The
match against Palmer will begin
at 4 p.m.


Conch pool 'built for speed'


SWIM / From 25

by 116-40.
Marathon also had defeated
the Conchs in football, golf and
volleyball this week.
Wednesday broke that string.
Knight has become enam-
ored of the college pool, which
abuts the paler Gulf of Mexico
and in which he hopes to break
the 22-second mark in the 50
free. His personal best is 22.4.
The pool, he said, is built for
speed, because of its depth (8
feet in the deep end and more
than 4 in the shallow end) and
because swimmers can push off
concrete at the end of the lap
lanes instead of tiles, which
some other pools have. "It's
easy to do flip-turns without
your feet slipping," Knight
said.
He also likes diving into the
deep end at the onset of a race.
"I swim faster in deep water,"
he said.
Travis Stokes also had a-
good day for the Conch boys,
swimming on three winning
relay teams.
For the Key West girls,
Alesandra Hally won the 200
freestyle in a time of 2:18 that
eclipsed her personal best by
four seconds; Effie Ford won
the 50 free and 100 backstroke,
and Rachel Kohler won the 200
individual medley.
"We had 32 girls for the


meet and 12 boys," Bosco said.
That was four times the
number of swimmers Marathon
had, but the Dolphins, under
new coach Sarah Maschal, had
some shining moments.
Melanie Boyd won the 100
fly in 1:09.83, defeating two
Conchs, Molly Gibson and
Katie Trent; and Matteo
Curruru defeated Key West's


Brown in the 100 freestyle.
Acacia Grube also swam well
for Marathon.
"It was a good start for
everyone," said Maschal,
whose team meets Coral Shores
Monday night at Founders Park
in Islamorada.
Key West will swim at 10
this morning against Westmin-
ster Academy.

bogeying his first three holes,
but recovered nicely with a
birdie on the fifth and sank a
40-footer for eagle on the ninth.
"The kid he was playing
with was solid and I gave him
the goal to beat that kid,"
Carrigan said. "He had to work
to get to one over."
Kuck birdied the first hole,
but Carrigan said he struggled
in the middle of his round
before finishing nicely.
"Other than [the sixth hole],
he played great, a lot better
than against Key West.
Hopefully, it gave him some
confidence," he said.
Gratton was the Dolphins'
No. 2 for the first time
Wednesday and responded
well, Carrigan said. The junior
parred the first three holes,


keeping them in the match
while Hegland struggled early
on.
"His big thing all year has
been putting. He made a great
5-footer downhill on the sec-
ond hole and a 10-footer on the
third," Carrigan said of
Gratton.
Marathon played a Friday
match against Gulliver Prep, a
team Carrigan said has "as
much talent as any team in the
state." He said the team set a
goal to shoot 165, but would
have to shoot under par to
defeat the district power.
"With the way these guys
are playing, we can start to
compete with these bigger
schools," Carrigan said.
Results of the Gulliver
match were not available at
press- time Friday. Marathon
will face Palmer Trinity at
home Tuesday at 4 p.m.

ICS splits with Calusa Colts


Volleyball
team battles.
into the night
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
I kwadlow@keynoter.com


After battling to win three
straight games in the opening
match, a. weary Island
Christian volleyball squad
sagged in the second half of
-Thursday's doubleheader at
Calusa Prep.
The Lady Eagles split the
doubleheader with the Colts,
moving the ICS record to a
solid 3-1.
"Our kids played well
against a-good Calusa team,"
CS coach Sheryl Yost said.
"I'm proud of them."
Sophomore hitter Jennifer
Subic got the Eagles started,
serving 10 points in the first
game of the 25-22, 25-23, 25-
23 win in the opening match.
Senior veteran Carrlee
Pinder served seven points in
the third game to finish it out.
"The girls were focused
and had good communica-
tion," Yost said. "They really
wanted to play together."
The road trip and long vol-
leys for points eventually
caught up with the Eagles in
the second match.
"We missed lots of serves
in the second match," Yost
said, "way too many."
In the first game, the Lady
Eagles were ahead by seven
before falling in overtime, 27-
25. "We blew that one," the
coach said.
Island Christian lost the


second game, 25-16, before
rallying to win the third, 25-
18, when Melanie Meroni
served nine points.
That forced a fourth game,
taken by the Lady Colts in
extra points, 26-24.
"It was a long, long night,"
Yost said. "Overall, it wasn't


bad."
Sophomore Jenny Glaze
had five kill shots in the dou-
bleheader, and Subic had
seven.
Island Christian plays rival
Princeton Christian on the
road at 4 p.m. Tuesday, then
hosts the Lady Panthers on
Sept. 21 (the Lady Eagles'
only scheduled home match).


Key West Rugby Club


begins fall season


Illinois team
comes on down
for first match

The Key West Rugby Club
celebrates the start of the Rugby
World Cup and the beginning of
its fall season today.
The club will gather at the
Shanna Key Pub on Flagler
Avenue in Key West at 11:00
a.m. to watch the United States
take on reigning World Cup
champion England.
The Rugby World Cup is the
third largest sporting event in the
world after the FIFA Soccer
World Cup and the Olympics,
reaching more than 3 billion peo-
ple. Twenty nations compete over
the next six weeks to claim the
title of world champion.
After the television match, the
Key West Rugby Club will move
to Bernstein Park on Stock Island
to open its fall season. The team
will take on the talented Lake
County (Ill.) Gladiators at 4 p.m.


The Key West club is begin-
ning its fifth year of competition.
Coach Joel Dos Santos and
President Martin Russell have
been working all summer to
organize the fall season.
"Our fall season is jusf begin-
ning to come together," team
Capt. Bill McDonough said.
"Our schedule is filling in and the
number of new players just keeps
increasing."
The club has a number of new
members to fill the void left by
military personnel who have
been rotated out of the Keys.
"We recently had four guys
show up who had never played
the game before. We had them up
to speed in a week and they will
be playing" today, McDonough
said.
The Key West Rugby Club is
always looking for new mem-
bers, no experience necessary. To
learn more, join the team at the
Shanna Key today or call
McDonough at 849-2753.

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF

The Department of Envi-


110
Legal Notices


ronmental Protection
gives notice of its issu-
ance of an Environmental
Resource Permit No.
44-0276263-001, to the
City of Marathon,
10045-55 Overseas
Highway, Marathon, FL
33050, to construct a sur-
face water management
system to serve 1.11
acres of the entire
1.11-acre site, known as
the Area 6 Wastewater
Treatment Plant
(WWTP). Stormwater
quality treatment for the
Project Area will be pro-
vided by dry retention be-
fore discharging through.
a well control structure to
an injection well. The ac-
tivity under this permit is
located in uplands and
there are no proposed
impacts to wetlands.

The activity is located in
uplands east of Avenue I
approximately 450 feet
north of Coco Plum
Drive, Marathon, Florida,
Florida Keys (not associ-
ated with Waters of the
State), Monroe County,
Section 4, Township 66
South, Range 33 East.

The permit is available
for public inspection from
8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Monday through Friday
except for legal holidays,
at the Department of.En-
vironmental Protection,
2295 Victoria Avenue,
Suite 364, Fort Myers, FL
33901, and at the South
District Marathon Office,
2796 Overseas Highway,
Suite 221, Marathon,
Florida 33050.

The Department's action
is final unless a timely pe-
tition for an administra-
tive hearing is filed under
sections 120.569 or
120.57 of the Florida
Statutes, before the
deadline for filing a peti-
.tion. The procedures for
petitioning for a hearing
are set forth below.

Mediation is not avail-
able.

A person whose substan-
tial interests are affected
by the Department's ac-
tion may petition for an
administrative proceed-
ing (hearing) under sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57
of the Florida Statutes.
The petition must contain
the information set forth
below and must be filed
(received by the clerk) in
the Office of General
Counsel of the Depart-
ment at 3900 Common-
wealth Boulevard, Mail
Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000.

Because the administra-
tive hearing Drocess is


110
Legal Notices

designed to determine fi-
nal agency action on the
permit, the filing of a peti-
tion of an administrative
hearing may result in a
modification of the per-
mit. If a sufficient petition
for an administrative
hearing or request for an
extension of the time to
file a petition is timely
filed, this permit automat-
ically becomes only pro-
posed agency action on
the application, subject to
the result of the adminis-
trative review process.
Accordingly, the appli-
cant is advised not to
commence construction
or other activities under
this permit until the dead-
lines noted below forfil-
ing a petition for an ad-
ministrative hearing or re-
quest fdr an extension of
time have expired.

Under rule 62-110.106(4)
of the Florida Administra-
tive Code, a person
whose substantial inter-
ests are affected by the
Department's action may
also request an exten-
sion of time to file a peti-
tion for an administrative
hearing. The Department
may, for good cause
shown, grant the request
for an extension of time.
Requests for extension ot
time must be filed with
the Office of General
Counsel of the Depart-
ment at 3900 Common-
wealth Boulevard, Mail
Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000, be-
fore the applicable dead-
line. A timely request for
extension of time shall
toll the running of the time
period forfiling a petition
until the request is acted
Upon. If a request is filed
late, the Department may
still grant it upon a motion
by the requesting party
showing that the failure to
file a request for an ex-
tension of-time before the
deadline was the result of
excusable neglect.

In the event that a timely
and sufficient petition for
an administrative hearing
is filed, other persons
whose substantial inter-
ests will be affected by
the outcome of the ad-
ministrative process
have the right to petition
to intervene in the pro-
ceeding. Any intervention
will be only at the discre-
tion of the presiding offi-
cer upon the filing of a
motion in compliance
with rule 28-106.205 of
the Florida Administra-
tive Code.

In accordance with rules
28-106.111(2)and

tive hearing by the aDDli-

propriate time period
shall constitute a waiver
of that person's right to

under sections 120.569
and 120.57 of the Florida
Statutes.

Thurber captures Key West's past


And Coote shows
plein air works
at competition
W hen I first came to
Key West in 1976,
Duval Street was
pretty much boarded up
except for the first two
blocks. The NAPA auto store
was just a few doors down
from Sloppy Joe's.
The seaport was still just
the bight and Singleton was
still processing crustaceans
there. If you ever heard the
1951 Jo Stafford lyrics "The
Shrimp boats are
comin'/There's dancin'
tonight," you might find your-
self humming them at the
sight of all the boats in port,
gear pointing skyward.
If you saw six or more
anchored off Smathers
Beach, you knew a norther
was coming. There were net
shops where old-timers, too
unstable for going to sea any-
more, mended the nets for the
next generation.
Shrimpers in white rubber
slops boots were a common
sight and "traffic" was a word
that was hard to fit into island
life.
The natives had wonderful
stories about their lives here
during those years after the
Depression, and especially
after the post-war era when
the U.S. Navy began to scale
down.
Artist Andy Thurber grew
up here then and his delight-
ful folk paintings in multiple


chronicle

ation that

He's
rh- building
S up inven-
k tory for a
new show
Judi Bradford at the
Gallery
on Greene next month. He
has a lyrical sensitivity to
events and a fearless attack
strategy on his images.
"The Day It.Rained
Bluebirds" shows a fisherman
on a green sea looking at a
gold sky full of birds. "Barnam
swallows before a rain storm
drove this vision," he says.
In "Ropa Vieja" a buxom
waitress serves up a plate of
Cuban food while a cartoony
black cat awaits his share.
The Gallery on Greene is
at 606 Greene St., His show
comes up Oct. 13. We'll
remind you.

Priscilla Coote
While talking to Gallery on
Greene owner Nance Frank,
Priscilla Coote's recent
selection as a participant in
Plein Air Easton, a national
painting competition and
show in Easton, Md., came
up.
Gallery on Greene recently
began representing her work.
Coote's pieces, collected
on several continents, have a
vibrant life to them. Strong

Frank says in a press

saturated hues of the Florida
Keys, she distills from it
something entirely different
from the common perception,
creating a 'parallel universe'
of mood and an atmosphere
of an earlier time."

Piece of literary history
Shas been tucked away in
L Jslamorada with local
writer Joe Avenick since the
1970s an unpublished novel
by Pulitzer Prize-v inning author
James A. Michener i 17-19 i.
Titled "Matecurn be."
this short work
represents a l. ,
departure from --: .
Michener's well- -
known long his-
torical novels such
as "Centennial,"
"Chesapeake" and
"Hawaii," and in
many ways parallel!
his own time visiting
Islamorada.
Due to his back,'roind
as a sports writer, A. enick
was approached in 19- 3 to
be a ghostwriter for
Michener's book "Sportns in
America." Once thai book '. a.
finished, he spent et eral
months traveling w nih Nlichener
throughout Maryland lielping
him research his next book,
"Chesapeake."
"We ironed out the plot first,
and then I wrote a rough draft of
about half of it," Avenick said.
"Michener took it from there."
Michener visited Avenick
often in Islamorada. His fascina-
tion with islands was reflected in
his works such as "Tales of the
South Pacific," which was later


transformed into the musical
"South Pacific;" "Return to
Paradise;" "Rascals of Paradise;"
and "Six Days in Havana."
"He always liked to live on
islands," Avenick said. "He liked
falling asleep with the window
open and listening to the wind
through the palm trees, trying to
decide if it was rain or just the
wind rustling through the palm
fronds."
A tale of
two l:,ve
stoner-,


^ ^ "Matecambe'"
weaves the lives of a
struggling single mother and,
years later, of her divorced
daughter, as they both are
offered a second chance at
romance.
The daughter, Melissa

the reader to Islamorada as part

marriage where she falls in love
with a local policeman.
Michener's Keys love
While in Islamorada, Avenick
introduced Michener to a local
businesswoman, Melissa (Missy)
DeMaio, with whom he began
having a love affair. DeMaio
was unaware of who Michener
was on the literary scene or of
his wealth.
Avenick speculates the
Melissa character in
"Matecumbe" as well as in
another novel, "Alaska," was
based on DeMaio.
"She was 25 years younger
than him at the time and a bun-
dle of energy," Avenick said.
'She led him into activities he'd
never done before."
In 2005, Avenick was
exposed as one of Michener's
ghostwriters in Stephen May's
2005 biography of Michener,
"Michener: A Writer's Journey."
May's research also uncovered
another ghostwriter, Errol Uys,
who helped him write "The
Covenant" and other-works.
SAvenick and Uys compared
notes and quickly realized
how Michener had been so
prolific over the course of his
life, with 70 books and 398 mag-
azine articles.
Michener tried several times
to get "Matecumbe" published
with Random House, but his edi-
tor at the time, Albert Erskine,
wanted him to stick to his histor-
ical novels that were more bank-
able. Once Michener decided
there was no hope of getting it
published, he passed the manu-
script on to Avenick.
Work in progress
"He conceded to their wishes,
but he kept reworking it,"
Avenick said. "The more he
reworked it, the more he liked it.
He just didn't want to see it die
somewhere in a drawer. He
thought maybe someday I could
rework it into something mod-
em, which I never did."
After Michener's death in
October 1997, Avenick made
some inquiries to publishing
houses and circulated portions of
it again when he was a literary
agent. Then, when he

Key West's May finds
fun in retirement

You've heard them the people
who think the word retirement
means "I'm through."
These are the-people who
need to read Phyllis May's book,
"ReFIRED not Retired: Reignite
your zest for life."
After retiring herself and tak-
ing a few years to figure it out,
the Key West resident and for-
mer educator decided to share
her thoughts with others closing
in on retirement or even those


who have retired in recent years.
Richard Blake of the Midwest
Book Review says: "In 13 short,
fast-moving chapters, Phyllis
shares from her own life experi-
ences as well as from others...
The reader is encouraged to take
risks, and embrace change."
To order the book (Wingspan
Press, 128 pages, $14.95), go to
www.refiredretired.com,
www.amazon.com or
www.ebay.com.

Treasure unveiled


'MATECUMBE' / From 4

approached the University
Press of Florida in 2005 about a
book he proposed on the histo-
ry of celebrities in the Keys,
they expressed interest in
"Matecumbe," which they had
read about in May's biography.
"This was a book that we
thought was worth having out
there because of the status of
the author,". said John Byram,
University Press of Florida's
editor in chief. "We thought it
would add a more personal
view of Michener's work
because it's one of the few
books, as far as we're aware,
that Michener did without a
ghostwriter. That, along with
the Florida focus, made it a nat-
ural book for us to do, since we
do so many about the state."
Byram noted they made few
changes other than obvious
spelling errors that Michener
would have changed himself.
"We looked on this as more
of a historical document," he
said. "We didn't remove any of
the anachronisms, slang or
styling because it's not our job
to make assumptions about
what Michener may or may not
have done. This is the way he
left the manuscript when he
was done with it."
Both Byram and Avenick


AVENICK


said this
book would
especially be
of interest to
Michener
fans, since
he drew
inspiration
from
Matecumbe
that was later


featured in his other well-,
known books. They also noted
that those who are familiar with
Michener's history would find
it interesting to see his own life
reflected in the characters.


MICHENER


"There
will be a
subset of his
fans that will
enjoy that
aspect,"
Byram said.
"I found it
was fascinat-
ing for me to
search out


some of the parallels between
the characters and Michener's
own experiences in the Keys."
"Matecumbe" is available
online and at local outlets such
as Cover to Cover Books in
Tavernier, Hooked on Books
and Mystic Isle in Islamorada,
Food for Thought in Marathon
and Blue Heron Books in Key
West.
