The Ke\ Lar o Wastewater
Tratmient Ditrict's capital
budget skyrocketed by almost
$3s million tor the upcoming fis-
cal ear.
Tuesday the district's board
unanimously appro\ ed the $42.5
million capital budget and its
$5 5 million combined operating
and non-operating budget for
2007-08.
The capital budget increase is
largely due to the expected com-
pletion of the 2.3-million-gal-
lons-per-day regional treatment
plant. dirict Financial Manager
Martin, aitss said.
The dismtct ~ill spend about
$14.5 nullion on the plant in fis-
cal sear 2008, as opposed to
$Qh0Il.00l this year and $325,000
in 2006.
The capital budget also
includes $4.2 million for con-
strLuctionn of a transnussion line
for the district's southern portion.
See CAPITAL /4


At its regular meeting
Wednesday, the County
Commission will be asked to
'approve Marston's appointment.
The appointment by Mayor


Mario Di Gennaro would recon-
figure the commission so that
three of the five members are
based in. Key West. Realtor
Donna Windle and attorney
Michelle Cates Deal are also
from Key West.


The appointment leaves the
Middle Keys with no representa-
tion.
Rumors abound that Com-
missioner George Neugent may
well tap Popham when Cates
Deal's term expires, since that
seat is generally appointed by
the District 2 commissioner.

Marathon Vice Mayor
Marilyn Tempest says she wants
City Manager Mike Puto to clean


his office.
As part of a Thursday work-
shop to more clearly define his
goals and objectives, Tempest
said one thing she would like to
see Puto do is "rearrange and
reorganize [his] office so that any
visitor may sit and have a reason-
able meeting."
"I am so over that office,"


Tempest quipped.
"I don't think we need to say
within two weeks you will clean
your room," Councilman Pete
Worthington said.
He said he thought the council
should be more concerned with
discussing and resolving the
recent issues they have had with
Puto, rather than attempting to

Memorial gets revitalized


Bougainvillea,
victims' plaque
to be included
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Purple bougainvillea will
bloom again at the Huiricane
Monument in Islamorada.
A project to place a handi-
capped-access ramp at the land-
mark memorial to victims of the
1935 Labor Day hurricane will
include new landscaping that
restores the bougainvillea with
flowering purple blossoms.
Work on the $107,193 project
should be "substantially com-
plete" by the end of this week and
finished by October, said Zully
Hemeyer, Islamorada's special-
projects director.
"The main purpose is to install
the handicapped ramp, but it also
gave us an opportunity to bring
back the historic bougainvillea,"
Hemeyer said.
The Matecumbe Historical
Trust and Islamorada's municipal
Landscape Advisory Committee.
endorsed the current plan to
replant bougainvillea at the mon-
ument, which contains cremated
remains of some storm victims.
It's officially known as the
Florida Keys Memorial.
The original bougainvillea
was believed to have been plant-
ed by families of the 1935 vic-
tims. A landscaping project at the

monument undertaken several
years ago replaced most of the
bougainvillea with other plants,
which angered local residents.
The name "Islamorada" is
believed to be derived from an
early Spanish seafarer's descrip-
tion of an island that appeared to
be purple because of many flow-
ering plants.
The. new landscaping design
includes "more open spaces
where people can gather,"
Hemeyer said. A plaque with the
names of the 1935 hurricane vic-
tims is planned,


New trees, including a 40-
foot-tall palm planted this week,
have been added to the site.
Designs for the handicapped-
access ramp were reviewed and
approved by the state Division of
Historical Resources.
"We had to assure that the
integrity of the monument is
being maintained," Hemeyer
said. "The ramp actually will
remain separate from the monu-
ment itself, and can be removed
without damaging the original
structure."

Motorcyclist


killed on U.S. 1


He apparently
was participating
in Poker Run
By RYAN McCARTHY.
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

One man was killed Friday and
a female passenger severely
injured when the motorcycle he
was driving collided with a sport
utility vehicle near mile marker 49.
Anthony Castellano, 70, of
Debary, just southwest of
Daytona Beach, was pronounced
dead at the scene, while 36-year-
old April Castellano was trans-
ported to nearby Fishermen's
Hospital and later airlifted to
Jackson Memorial Hospital.
Details could not be con-
firmed by press time, but the
southbound motorcycle appears
to have collided with the blue
Chevy Tahoe while the SUV was
stopped to turn left off the high-
way. It happened around 12:30
p.m.
"We're not sure if she was


going to make a turn or if she just
slowed down because traffic is
pretty heavy here in town,"
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
Lt. Lou Caputo said.
The accident was the first seri-
ous one to occur during the 35th
annual Florida Keys Poker Run,
for which thousands of biking
enthusiasts make the September
journey to Key West every year.
Caputo acknowledged that
accidents are an unfortunate real-
ity of the Poker Run.
"We always have a couple. It's
starting off early already," he said.
A minor accident involving a
motorcycle took place Friday
morning in Key Largo at mile
marker 100.
Israel Perez, a .41-year-old
Hialeah resident, was charged
with careless driving and escaped
without injury after crashing his
Harley-Davidson at State Road 5
and Tarpon Basin Road. His pas-
senger, 29-year-old Nancy Perez,
received minor injuries.

CAPITAL / From 1

The other big spending
increases for 2008 come from
Key Largo's five wastewater
collection basins. The district
budgeted a total of $23 million
for these projects.
The increased budget will be
paid for by more users of the
growing system, not by
increased assessments.
Meanwhile, Islamorada's top
official was sent to talk to Key
Largo sewer officials about the
possibility of the two areas shar-
ing sewer treatment.
SThe move was despite the vil-
lage public works chief's Aug.
23 report that concluded treating
wastewater within Islamorada
would save residents almost $20
million as opposed to piping it to
Key Largo.
The Village Council sent
Gary Word, Islamorada's village
manager, to the Key Largo
Wastewater Treatment District's.
Tuesday board meeting with a
list of four if lion's' regarding a
~ : 1, t ,, '; ( '.


possible system sharing agree-
ment.
In the end, the board voted 5-
0 to begin "preliminary negotia-
tions" between Word's staff and
the wastewater district .about
working together in the future.
That was in response to Word's
question about the wastewater
district being open to an "inter-
local agreement that would pro-
vide for the transport and treat-
ment of wastewater from the vil-
lage to the" Key Largo district.
The board would agree only
to preliminary negotiations.
A report by Myles Milander,
the village's public works direc-
tor, said piping it all to Key
Largo would cost $172 million,
treating it in both the village and
Key Largo would cost $165 mil-
lion and treating it all locally
would cost $155 million.
Proponents of treating all
Islamorada sewage in Key Largo
argue the village would save in
operating costs in the future by
not maintaining treatment plants
in Islamorada.

TDC policy stirs nest


Islamorada
now without
lodging seat
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The recent appointment of a
Marathon business owner to rep-
resent the Islamorada district of
the Monroe County Tourist
Development Council has some
questioning the county's appoint-
ment policy.
Last week, Monroe County
Mayor Mario Di Gennaro
appointed Islamorada resident
Jim Rhyne to represent District 4
on the TDC, replacing the resign-
ing Scott Simmons. Though
Rhyne lives in Islamorada, he
owns a motel in Marathon.
"I feel it should be business or
work place that should determine
the position," TDC Director
Harold Wheeler said in a letter to
County Attorney Suzanne


Hutton. "[Rhyne's] business is in
District 3, and bed-tax dollars
collected and used to promote his
business come from District 3.
District 4 Islamorada now
has no one to represent one of
their lodging businesses on the
TDC."
The ordinance that established
the TDC, written in 1988, says
each district must have at least
one representative "who is a resi-
dent of the district."
The policy came up in July
when Key West representative
Matt Babich was suddenly
removed from the board. Babich
owns several hotels in Key West
but has lived for more than a year
in Key Haven, which falls in
District 2.
At the August County Com-
mission meeting, Commissioner
Dixie Spehar, who had initially
appointed Babich in 2000, intro-
duced a resolution to replace him
with Freddy Varela, a Key West

PLANNING /From 1

Neugent, however, was not
available for comment.
Cates Deal's term expires in
November, and she informed
the county Planning
Department she is not interest-
ed in being reappointed.
Whether Neugent will be
allowed to make that appoint-
ment also remains to be seen
after several incidents where
his appointments were overrid-
den.
In 2005, Neugent nominated
Stock Island resident Kim
Wigington for the Planning
Commission, but she was
voted down by then-Mayor
Dixie Spehar and commission-
ers Murray Nelson and Sonny
McCoy.
Neugent then nominated

Phillips, but Spehar stepped in
and nominated Cates Deal.
Spehar, Nelson and McCoy
voted to put Cates on the
board.
Popham served just a partial
term, stepping in for the retir-
ing Lynn Mapes in January
2006.
She acknowledged she has


often been in the minority.
"Nevertheless, though my
vote may have been one of four
on the dais, I have taken
strength in my belief that I
have often spoken for the silent
majority in our community,"
she said.
Popham is pleased with the
job she did, bul said she would
like to continue to serve.
"I am disappointed that my
significant investment of time
and effort has come to an
abrupt halt at a rather untimely
moment amidst the important
issue of public and commercial
access to [the] waterfront."

appointing Marston for his
savvy.
"He's an attorney, and he's a
sharp one," Di Gennaro said.

"Although I had one year left
in my term, and had faithfully
served on the TDC for seven
years, the residency issue was
determined to require immediate
remedy," Babich wrote in a letter
to the commissioners Wednesday.
Babich wrote that deciding on
a representative based upon resi-
dency rather than on the location
of a business "disqualifies a huge
population of capable business
persons from being able to serve
on the TDC."
"Having -people like Mr.
Babich, who owns five lodging
properties and pays bed taxes in a
district but is not eligible to serve
on the TDC for that district, is
stupid," Wheeler wrote. He also
noted that when he began work-
ing for the TDC in 1996, a Key
Haven resident represented the
Key West district.
He suggested revising the
rule.
A decision Monday to rein-
state Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson moved the commis-
sion to direct the TDC to change
another aspect of its rules.
McPherson was automatically
removed from the board after
missing four meetings.
TDC policy calls for the
mandatory removal if a member
misses three consecutive meet-
ings or four within one fiscal year.
The commission voted 3-2 to
instruct the TDC to change that
policy so it would allow an
appointee who also serves as an
elected official to be excused
from absences. Commissioners
George Neugent and Sylvia
Murphy voted against the policy
change.

Keys Opinion


State may finally be

getting sewer picture

State Rep. Ron Saunders invited two key Tallahassee officials
to the Keys on Friday.
His goal was to let them see with their own eyes and listen
with their own ears to the challenges we face sewering the Keys.
Friday's get-together was held at the Key Largo library with
members of the Monroe County Commission and other public
officials.
Truth be told, the visitors may have learned more had they
come earlier this week and spent some time at the Key Largo
Wastewater Treatment District's budget meeting.
They would have heard how costs have skyrocketed and of the
need to accelerate getting a plant built and operating. Also,
they'd hear how revenue from sewer fees is critical to pay back
up-front capital costs.
These Tallahassee visitors would also have seen Islamorada's
city manager on a mission to explore joint use, where sewage
produced in Islamorada could be pumped north and treated in
the plant that Key Largo is building rather than build a compet-
ing, stand-alone plant.
After more than a year of hemming and hawing, it appears at
least some Village Council representatives have lost their
appetites to be sewer kings and are looking for more cost-effec-
tive alternatives.
Our state visitors would have also heard the Key Largo district
board vote unanimously to begin preliminary negotiations with
the village, exploring how the two public bodies can work
together.
And that's an important step, especially with so many stake-
holders dependent on cooperation, not competition.
Our shared goal should be: Find the most efficient way to
clean up our water and protect the environment. Numerous sci-
entific studies, citizen committees and public commissions have
concluded that building sewers is the way to accomplish those
goals.
But the price tag is staggering.
Back in the 1980s, before Islamorada and Marathon incorpo-
rated, the then-County Commission could have borrowed the
money and sewered the Keys for a pricetag estimated at $85
million.
Today, the price tag has climbed past $662 million. But that's
only the latest estimate, which alarmingly grew $159 million
since a March sewer summit's estimates of $503 million.
That's why Friday's get-together was important. Saunders
hopes the state mandate for sewering the Keys can be fast-
tracked via a state-supported bond issue. And he'll need the sup-
port of key state officials like the two he brought for face-to-face
meetings.
There's a lot of heavy lifting ahead, but we're hoping Friday's
visit moves us forward in a positive way.

Overseas troops need holiday help from Keys


EDITOR:
It breaks my heart to have to write this but
the 3/2 Marine Battalion this community sup-
ported with Christmas and holiday packages last
year has been sent back to Iraq.
This community made India Company and
the 3/2's holiday a great one even if it was in the
war zone. In addition to 102 boxes filled with
DVDs, holiday candy, music CDs, handheld
games, harmonicas, candy canes and more, we
also sent 38 small Christmas trees, 100 stock-
ings, 100 Santa hats, several travel-type meno-
rahs to their pastoral services and more than 20
dozen homemade cookies.
The battalion commander delivered items
personally to outposts. Several of the troops died
in combat two days after Christmas. This com-
munity made their last holiday a good one. It
made a difference to those who remember them.
Let's make sure the ones serving our country so
far from home this year get a good one, too.
My son, Lance Cpl. Joshua Potts, says he
loves the Keys community and hopes we do it
again. He says there are a lot of new, very young
Marines and this will be their first holiday away
from home. Having support from hometown
communities makes a huge difference over there.
This will be his second holiday in the combat
zone. He hopes we can do as well by them as we
did last year.
All items bought or donated go directly to
India Company and the 3/2 Battalion via my liv-


ing room. Through donations from Hawke &
Associates, various Keys residents and Ocean
Reef members, we included more than $800 in
AT&T phone cards inserted in holiday cards and
shipping was paid for. It costs $8.10 per box.
I'm writing this now because items for the
holidays have to be shipped by Nov. 10 in order
to reach them in time. We need to start gathering
items now.
DVDs are a big item (used is OK), battery-
portable DVD players, handheld battery operated
games, small Walkman-type CD players, AT&T
phone cards (must be AT&T for Iraq; they can
be bought at Wal-Mart or on their Web site),
candy canes, individually wrapped holiday
candy, etc.
Last year I offered to do the shopping for
those of you who could donate but were unable
to get to where items are available. I will do it
again this year if needed.
If you live in the Keys and have someone
who will be deployed over the holidays (any
service branch) and want a box sent to them, as
well, e-mail their APO address to scarves-
forindia@hotmail.com. If you have a location
we can set up an item drop box in the Upper
Keys, please call me at (305) 433-1373.
For the sake of all the new young Americans
serving and those who have to spend their holi-
day in the war zone once more, let's do it again.

County contractor needs to do the right thing


EDITOR:
On Jan. 17, vehicles in and around the Freeman
Justice Center in Key West were covered with
waterproofing overspray by the workers of Greco

tor for the Tower Group (the contractor for the
construction of the Freeman Justice Building).
On Jan. 26, the owners met with an appraiser

It's all about the money
EDITOR:
I was going to say I couldn't believe how stu-
pid the city of Key West is being about raising the
rent on the Waterfront Market. But then I thought,
Hey, it's Key West. All the smart people have reg-
ular jobs. Only the power- and money-hungry
idiots are available to run for office.
Instead of taking all the current conditions into
consideration such as housing costs, employment
and the current state of insurance costs, the city
arbitrarily puts a rent figure on the property that
doesn't reflect the reality of the state of the econ-
omy.
The City Commission just looks in some book
that does comparative property listings, not realiz-
ing it may not have been updated in three years or
so and applies it without any thought.
Very typical. It's always about money.

Code case enters 10th hearing


'Renegade tenant'
built illegally
but owner cited
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

All he wants to do is end
the code-enforcement case,
says the owner of the Key
Largo site where the Marine
Mammal Conservancy holds
dolphins during rehabilitation.
"Why this has not been
resolved is beyond my com-
prehension," said John
Powers, principal of JPB
Properties. "What kind of
precedent does this set for the
rest of Monroe County?"
Powers said the case
against him based on work
done by MMC, the leaseholder
- is headed to its 10th code
hearing this fall.
Powers, once a benefactor
to the MMC cause, now is.


locked in a legal battle with
the nonprofit organization
over the three-acre bayside
property at mile marker 102.2.
A code-enforcement com-
plaint against a partially com-
pleted building on the proper-
ty and other alleged violations
has been before Monroe
County's code magistrate
since March 2006.
"We have had nine hear-
ings," Powers said. "Basically,
no progress has been made. It
keeps getting rolled over."
In an early hearing, MMC
was dismissed as a defendant.
That leaves JPB Properties
responsible for fines accumu-
lating against structures that
the company did not build and
cannot remove, Powers said.
"'We have never pulled a
single building permit on this
property," Powers said. "The
county is holding us ultimate-
ly responsible for the actions
of a renegade tenant."


Attempts to contact an
MMC board member and the
organization's lawyer were not
successful.
Powers said accumulated
fines amount to more than
$27,000.
"I can't guess what the les-
son is to other people in
Monroe County," Powers said.
MMC "hauled this stuff in,
hauled it to the water's edge
and hooked it up."
SAt the most recent hearing
Aug. 30, the magistrate extend-
ed the case 60 days because of
confusion over whether an
inspection was made on a
building permit.
"It was confusing," said
Ronda Norman, director, of
Monroe County Code
Enforcement. "As I recall, the
permit was dead and [MMC]
was given time to renew."
Delays earlier this year
were ordered when the county
changed the -attorney serving
as code-enforcement magis-
trate.


SLand Trust's role lessening


Council looks
at cutting
contract cost
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Several prominent Marathon
residents involved with the
Middle Keys Community Land
Trust turned out at Tuesday's
regular City Council meeting to
defend against a recent decision
by the city to void the trust's
annual $50,000 contract, which
runs through 2009.
City Manager Mike Puto
made the recommendation at a
recent meeting to review city
contracts, but the item was
scheduled on Tuesday's regular
meeting agenda so Land Trust
Administrator Rick Casey and
board members could plead their
case.
Former Councilman Frank
Greenman, Planning Coni-
mission Chairwoman Morgan
Hill and Affordable Housing
Task Force member Josh
Mothner detailed at length the
reasons they believe the city
cannot do without the Land


Trust's services..
"You do not have the expertise
- and that's not a denigration, it's
a fact or the staff to do the
things you say weren't getting
done," Mothner said at the meet-
ing.
The Land Trust's duties
include monitoring deed-restric-
tion compliance 'and income-
qualifying affordable-housing
candidates, among others.
Planning Director Fred Gross
told council he and his staff "felt
we weren't receiving anything
for the $50,000" and that the
contract is "loose." He said the
city needs help with affordable-
housing issues, but the Land
Trust has not been productive.
"It doesn't say what we expect
them to do, or anything they
would have done if we had not
given them the $50,000," Gross
said.
Gross also cited a lack of
accessibility to Casey, whom he
said "was not at the last half-
dozen meetings."
At Thursday's public -budget
hearing, Gross outlined for
council a list of services the
Land Trust could provide out-


side the realm of staff's capabil-
ity. He suggested the expected
workload from those duties
would amount to $5,000.
A final decision will be made
on the contract by Thursday's
final public budget hearing.
Council also took the follow-
ing actions Tuesday at the
Marathon Government Center:
Approved an ordinance for
the adoption of a system by
which the city will codify its
ordinances. Residents will be
able to access a link at
http://www.municode.com,
making it easier to access city
code information.
+ Approved a resolution
dealing with the city's interlocal
.agreement with the Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority for due-dili-
gence inspections of the Little
Venice sewer treatment plant.
The inspections are being
done prior to a decision by coun-
cil whether to acquire the prop-
erty from the Aqueduct
Authority.
+ Mayor Chris Bull appoint-
ed former Marathon High
School Athletic Director Bill
Sympson to the Parks &
Recreation Committee.


The case tentatively is
scheduled to return to a hear-
ing in late October.
Rick Trout, a former dol-
phin trainer who was removed
from the MMC board of direc-
tors, served as Powers' local
agent in overseeing the lease.
"This has left me beyond
frustrated," Trout said. "I
spend most of my conversa-
tions with John apologizing to
him."
Powers arranged the pur-
chase of the Key Largo prop-
erty in 1995 with the intention


of creating a rehabilitation
center that employs marine-
mammal protocols established
by Trout, and dedicated to the
eventual release of recovered
dolphins and whales.
The Key Largo property
was used for this year's reha-
bilitation effort for Castaway,
an offshore dolphin that was
later discovered to be deaf and
pregnant. The calf died soon
after birth." Castaway cannot
be released and was trans-
ferred to a Key Largo display.

Seven boats stolen

in the Upper Keys


Cops believe
they're used
for smuggling
A rash of boat thefts in the
Upper Keys has detectives ask-
ing the public's help in finding
the thief or thieves.
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office Detective Sgt. Gene
Thompson said seven boats have
been stolen from behind Upper
Keys homes the past two
months. The boats were all on
lifts or davits, and were relative-
ly new. Each has multiple high-
end engines.
In most of the cases, the boats
were found abandoned just days
after they were stolen.
Detectives believe they're being
used for migrant smuggling. In
one particular case, a stolen boat
was recovered by the U.S. Coast
Guard while being used for that


purpose.
Boat owners throughout the
Keys should take every precau-
tion with their vessels, particu-
larly those kept in or near the
water. When leaving home for
any amount of time, the owner
should turn off power to their
boat lift and put a lock box
around the lift controls.
Make sure the area where the
boat is kept is lighted at night
and notify neighbors to keep an
eye on the boat if at all possible.
Anyone with information
about the. Upper Keys thefts
should call the Sheriff's Office
or Crime Stoppers of the Florida
Keys. Callers to Crime Stoppers
may remain anonymous and are
eligible for a cash reward if their
information leads to an arrest.
The hotline number is (800)

Trap rules loosen


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Removing lost or damaged
commercial lobster and crab
traps from state waters should
happen sooner after the next
storm, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission says.
SThursday, the board .of the
state agency.moved to streamline
rules on who can legally handle
traps in a declared emergency.
"These rules will help commer-
cial fishers work. together to
recover traps after major storms,
make it easier for officials to
remove illegal traps and debris
from places where they aren't
allowed," FWC Chairman Rodney
Barreto said in a statement.
In the wake of Hurricane
Katrina and other storms, tens of
thousands of wooden and plastic
traps placed at sea to catch lob-
ster or crabs were smashed,
thrown onto shore or lost to wave
action.
By several estimates, a quarter
to a half of the 480,000 licensed
lobster traps were damaged or
moved by Katrina.
Previous state law intended to
protect traps from being robbed,
and to assist law enforcement.


said only the owner of a trap or a
designated state marine officer
could retrieve a trap even if
damaged to the point of being
useless or being moved into a no-
fishing zone.
As a result, traps often lay
scattered for months while
cleanup were organized. Many
traps were abandoned by their
owners.
Under the revised rule, a fish-
erman can designate people to
retrieve their traps in a declared
emergency.
"The rules also exempt local,
state. or federal officials from
having to get FWC approval
before removing traps and trap
debris from areas where trapping
is prohibited," according to an
FWC spokesman.
."This is a good move," said
Todd Firm, owner of Keys Diver
and a member of the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary's
advisory council. "The law made
it so difficult to recover traps that
many were not recovered. I've
seen derelict traps that went on to
cause further damage to the live
coral reef."
SMonroe County accounts for
most of the state's commercial
lobster harvests.

Hundreds appeal assessments

Each year, the Monroe
County Property Appraiser's
Office sets a value on properties,
and each year property owners
challenge that appraisal.
Friday was the deadline to
file a challenge with the county's
Value Adjustment Board.
By mid-morning Friday,
more than 225 challenges had
been counted, but Pam Hancock
at the County Clerk's Office esti-
mates she was only about
halfway through the stack that
had come in.
The clerk accepts appeals that
were postmarked Sept. 14.
Last year, 635 property own-.
ers challenged the appraiser's
assessment of their property
value. The value determines how
much they pay in taxes.
"I think it will be down con-
siderably from last year,"
Assistant County Appraiser Karl
Borglum said.
Taxpayers were notified of
the assessments in the annual
Truth in Millage Notice that
went out in August.
The so-called TRIM notices
are an estimate of tax bills based
upon the proposed budgets of all
local governments. Each notice
includes the most recent
assessed value of the individual
property.

are inaccurate.
"Generally, taxable values for
most jurisdictions in the county

to 10 percent this past year,"
chamber Executive Vice
President Virginia Panico wrote,
"[and by] 11 percent to 12 per-

more than that, you might have

Stormwater traps
to catch debris

The city of Key West hopes to

drains along Duval Street starting
next week.
The traps are part of the city's
initiative to go green and be more
environmentally proactive as a

Next week's project involves


installing 33 debris-trapping
inserts that will be put into storm
drains along Duval. Currently, no
pre-treatment is provided for that

City spokeswoman Christie

fall to the beaches and shore.
The installation starts Monday
on Upper Duval.

Commission adopts rollback budget


Aggregate
village rate
stands at 2,73
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Property-tax collections for
the 2007-08 fiscal year will be $5
million lower than the current
year, but that doesn't mean peo-
ple's individual bills will go
down.
The Monroe County
Commission, during the first of
three public budget hearings
Wednesday, approved an aggre-
gate millage rate of 2.73, which


translates into a tax bill of $273
per $100,000 of assessed proper-
ty value.
The aggregate rate is an
across-the-board average, and
property owners will see slight
variations depending upon where
they live.
Ad valorem taxes will account
for $79.1 million of unincorporat-
ed .Monroe County's overall
budget of $329.4 million.
During the 2006-07 budget
year, property-tax collections
accounted for $83.7 million of
the overall $373 million budget.
But lowered tax rates don't
necessarily mean lower bills.


"I know I shouldn't be sur-
prised to once again see my taxes
skyrocketing," said Peter Bacle,
owner of the Stock Island Lobster
Co: "I thought with all the talk of
tight budgets, .my taxes would
stay where'they were last year.
But once again I found I had a
$12,000 tax increase. That's a 25
percent increase."
Because of the statewide Save
Our Homes amendment to the
state Constitution, homeowners
enjoy an annual 3 percent cap on
their property taxes. Commercial
property owners, like Bade, and
owners of second homes have no
such protection.
And although tax rates are
substantially lower in the 2007-


08 budget approved Wednesday,
property values rose by almost 10
percent the past year.
County Administrator Tom
Willi introduced the budget, say-
ing cutbacks that had to be made
to meet a state mandate did not
result in layoffs or a reduced level
of service.
The Florida Legislature
passed a bill in June requiring
local governments to roll back
their taxing rates anywhere from
3 percent to 7 percent. According
to the Legislature's formula,
Monroe County is required to roll
back 5 percent.
The aggregate millage rate for
unincorporated Monroe County,
adopted Wednesday, is 4.63 per-
cent below rollback. Rollback is
the tax rate needed to raise as
much tax revenue in the next fis-
cal as the current one.
"We need to be calling this a
transitional budget because more
reductions will likely be coming
from Tallahassee," Willi said,


referring to a January referendum
where voters will be asked to
approve large residential tax
exemptions.
Willi said the county needs to
build up its reserves, which stand
around $12 million. At the end of
next year, the general fund bal-
ance is estimated to fall to $9.5
million.
"Three years ago, you had
reserves of 50 percent of your
general fund," said Peter
Rosasco, whose accounting firm
finalized the budget. "In this pro-
posal we're projecting an ending
fund balance of a little more than
$9.5 million. That, in my profes-
sional opinion, is woefully inade-
quate. One catastrophe, one hur-
ricane, would wipe that out."
Willi said he wants to see the
reserves increased to up to $20
million within the next five to
seven years.
The final budget hearing is at
5 p.m. Friday at the Marathon
Government Center.

Marathon cuts millage


Final hearing
on the budget
is on Thursday
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon city staff presented
the City Council Thursday with
a proposed budget at 8.42 per-.
cent below rollback, well
beyond the state-mandated 5
percent figure.
The latest proposed millage
rate is 1.4493, or $1.4493 per
$1,000 of assessed taxable prop-
erty value. At that rate, Key
Colony Beach (1.3092) would
be the only Keys municipality
with a lower millage rate than
Marathon.
Rollback is the tax rate need-
ed to raise the same amount of
revenue next fiscal year as the
current one.
According to the 1.4493 fig-
ure, the owner of a $300,000
home in Marathon would pay
$434.79 in property taxes.
The total land value in the
city is $3.148 billion, on which
$4,561,970 in ad valorem taxes
is expected to be collected.
The total budget figure is
$71,229,116: general fund


($14.11 million), special revenue
funds ($13.12 million), debt
service fund ($1.1 million) and
enterprise funds ($43 million).
Nearly 60 percent of that
money, $41,514,888, can be
attributed to investments in cap-
ital assets for stormwater and
sewer utilities.
The council had requested the
budget be 10 percent below roll-
back, which Finance Director
Peter Rosasco said would
require an additional $70,000 in
cuts.
A contract with the Middle
Keys Community Land Trust
could possibly account for
$50,000 of that total.
City Manager Mike Puto rec-
ommended at a recent special
meeting to review city contracts
that the council not renew the
city's deal with the Land Trust
for the coming year. However, it
appears the city may be recep-
tive to keeping it on board at a
much lower cost provided serv-
ices can be streamlined.
Planning Director Fred Gross
has said he was not satisfied
with the amount of work done
by the Land Trust and suggested
the contract be renewed for only
$5,000 annually.


AiBp`_ I'_O1flV '

Keynoter photo by KYLE TEAL


"I've looked at this with the
finance director and we feel a
budget for this amount of work
could be accomplished for
$5,000 annually," Gross said.
"I think the recommendation
you just heard is not based on
any intelligent decision," Land
Trust Administrator Rick Casey
said in response to Gross.
Council also discussed at
length the possibility of increas-
ing various insurance
deductibles in an effort to further
reduce the budget.
For instance, deductibles on
flood insurance are currently
$1,000. Increasing them to
$5,000 would save the city
$4,200 annually.
"I believe we can take a more
moderate approach," said Vice
Mayor Marilyn Tempest, who
has been lobbying for the higher
deductibles.
Some council members felt
the savings were not worth the
possible exposure to the city.
The final public budget hear-
ing will be at 5:30 p.m. Thursday
at the Monroe County Sheriff's
office airplane hangar at the
Marathon airport.

Keys schools expect more revenue


That's even
with lower
village rate
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbumie@keysreporter.com


The Monroe County School
Board cut the school tax rate
about a nickel from this year's
rate, expecting to raise about
$85 million in taxes compared
to about $80.8 million last year.
At its meeting Tuesday, the


board unanimously approved a
tax rate of $2.946 per $1,000 of
assessed property value.
The owner of property
assessed at $500,000 will pay
about $1,473 in school taxes.
The 2006-07 tax rate of
$3.016 per $1,000 cost the
owner of a $500,000 property
$1,509 in school taxes.
The school district fiscal
year started July 1, while
Monroe County and the munic-
ipalities start their fiscal years

The School District's total
budget for 2007-08 is $274.1
million, with an operating
budget of $91.8 million, about
$1 million less than in 2006-07.
Not everyone at the meeting
was satisfied with the slightly
lower tax rate.
Virginia Panico, executive
vice president of the Key West
Chamber of Commerce, said
rising property assessments
mean most property owners
will pay more in taxes even
with the lower tax rate.
"A lot of people talk millage
rates and a lot of people talk
this and that. It's an increase,
period," Panico said. "When is
it going to end? We can't afford
it."

The total taxable property

2006-07, the total value was
about $26.4 billion.
The Florida Legislature
exempted school districts from
a mandate to cut property tax
rates by 7 percent. Monroe
County and municipalities are
complying with the mandate.
School Board members said
their options for cutting the tax
rate are limited because they
must raise enough locally to
receive about $15 million from

Mandated class-size reduc-
tions also keep the board from
cutting taxes more because
schools need to hire more

Several board members said
they hope that controlling
spending this school year will
let them lower taxes next year.

Key West city budget clears first hurdle


$160M plan
passes first
vote 6-0
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Thirteen frozen city posi-
tions and help from a little addi-
tional property-tax revenue
prompted the Key West City
Commission Thursday to pass
the city's proposed 2007-08
budget.
The extra ad-valorem rev-
enue was discovered after the
millage calculation was adjust-
ed to include tax-increment


financing property assessments.
The commission first passed
a millage rate of 2.0354 before
passing the proposed
$163,153,579 total budget, with
the legislative mandated 3 per-
cent rollback in property tax for
homeowner's relief. Rollback is
the tax rate that raises the same
amount of revenue for the next
fiscal year as the current one.
The vote was 6-0.
Commissioner Harry Bethel
was absent.
The adopted millage means
the owner of a $500,000 home
would pay $1,017.70 in city
property taxes. With the current


millage of 2.3, that same home-
owner is paying $1,150 in taxes.
Property taxes finance the
general fund, which is the day-
to-day operating budget. That's
proposed at $38.531.345.
Counting police officers paid
from tax-increment funding,
which is taxes set aside to bol-
ster blighted areas, Police Chief
Bill Mauldin says there will be
eight total salaries spared from
the city's general fund, which
will see $231,279 less in prop-
erty tax revenue, or 1.6 percent
less than this year.
Those eight salaries include.
four officers who are paid
through TIF Four vacant posi-
tions will not be filled.


TIF funds under scrutiny


Some say money
would be better
in general fund
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

With Key West budgeting
its lowest millage rate yet with
a push from the state
Legislature, a move is on to
find other means of paying for
city services.
Among those means getting
close scrutiny: Tax-incremen-
tal financing, which provides
tax money to areas judged
most in economic need.
Best known of those are
special taxing districts created
for Bahama Village and the
Key West Bight.
But some ask why those
funds can't be spread around
to offset budget shortfalls city-
wide, an effort that's bringing
a fair share of criticism from
residents who say budgetary
problems wouldn't exist with-
out TIF.
"It's supposed to be used
for things that don't fall in the
general fund, and policing
does," said Bahama Village
resident and TIF critic Red
Flowers, citing four officers'
salaries paid by TIF funds.
"They're using this money
to make up for a shortfall,
which is contrary to the agree-
ment we have."
"It's just a mechanism to
get money there faster," city


Finance Director Roger
Wittenberg said.
When improvements are
made to a community, the ad
valorem tax revenue conse-
quently increases. Increased
tax revenue, also known as tax
increment, is supposed to ben-
efit that growing community.
For blighted areas, or areas
deemed in need of redevelop-
ment, that extra money is
placed in what's called the TIF
fund, set aside to bolster those
areas. The blighted areas are
determined through a planning
process called a community
redevelopment plan.
Using a base rate of proper-
ty taxes from 1998, when the
districts were established, the
Bahama Village district col-
lected about $700,000 this
year while the bight received
around $600,000 based on
increases from its 1998 base
rate.
That reflects the difference
in property assessment and
millage from 1998 to 2007.
If property taxes decrease in
those areas, then nothing goes
into.TIF, Wittenberg said.
"Basically, it's breaking off
a small piece of taxes to bene-
fit the community," said
Commissioner Clayton Lopez,
whose district is Bahama
Village.
The four police officers
paid by TIF are assigned to
Bahama Village.
More than $1.5 million of


such incremental tax funds
have been saved through the
years for new equipment and
renovations at Nelson English
Park. The funds earmarked for
the four officers' salaries, plus
overtime and health benefits,
are $380,000, Lopez said.
"I know the Bahama Village
plan will be redone next year,"
Wittenberg said. "But the
Caroline Street corridor is not
as critical because a bond is
being repaid."
That bond payment from
the city's purchase of the bight
property is about $18 million
and Wittenberg said there's
about $12 million worth in
pending payments.
The funds are used for rede-
velopment planning expenses,
acquisition of real property,
clearance of the redevelop-
ment area, repayment of bonds
and debt, affordable housing
development and community
policing initiatives. Recently
streetlights in Bahama Village
were replaced and plants were
planted along Petronia Street.
Among other community
members, City Commission
District 4 candidate George
Maurer says he wants to see
the program dissolve and all
property tax revenue go into
the general fund.
-"I think we should at least
think about putting that money
in other areas of the city," he
said, adding however that
already existing commitments
made to Bahama Village
should be upheld.


"Do I need them? Yes,"
Mauldin told the Keynoter.
"Can I get along without them?
Yes."
Mauldin said he force will
not thin out: "No one has been
laid off and no one will be laid
off," he said.
City Manager Jim Scholl
confirmed that, and said he is
working to make tweak expens-
es so employees can be given
raises.
The current budget through
August shows $1,181,053 was
spent in police overtime,
including marine departments
and officers paid through TIF
The coming year's budget ear-
marks $1,040,000 for overtime.
The reason for so much over-
time: Key West's special events,
commissioners and Scholl said.
Scholl told the commission
he is establishing a special-
events committee to ensure
future festivities run smoothly.


Commissioner Dan Kolhage
said it's the commission's duty
to "stick to" the state legislative
mandated rollback, but the city
must be careful, especially the
Police Department.
"They're going to have to
watch their overtime meticu-
lously," he said. "If we're not
careful, we could dip into the
reserve pool."
The Police Department is the
only department commissioner
Clayton Lopez knows of that
sets aside money for overtime
beforehand.
"I.had never heard of such a
thing," he said. "It's still very
confusing to me."
Lopez said he'd like to see a
special taxing district created
specifically for Duval Street, as
the active strip draws many
police officers to restore order.
The budget hearing is sched-
uled for 6 p.m. Wednesday at
Old City Hall on Greene Street.

Final rats proving elusive


Turns out they
like cantaloupe,
so that's bait
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission and
U.S. Department of Agriculture
workers began an intensive trap-
ping session Wednesday on
Grassy Key in an attempt to
eliminate what they believe to be
a dwindling Gambian giant rat
population on the island.
"We've divided the Grassy
Key area into five zones and
we're putting a greater density of
traps in those areas for four
days," said Scott Hardin, FWC
exotic-species coordinator.
"We're putting as many as we've
got, approximately 200 in each
area at a time."
Hardin said he believes the
core area where Gambians
remain is at the east end of
Grassy between Morton and
Ferreire streets and Lemon and
Guava avenues.
Gambian rats are an African


species that can grow up to nine
pounds and reportedly appeared
on Grassy Key sometime
between 1999 and 2001, when
they were released by a resident
who had been breeding them.
Workers have live-captured
some two dozen of the feral
rodents on the heels of an initial
six-week program where over
1,000 poisoned bait stations
were deployed throughout the
island. They were first pre-baited
with peanut butter before having
a zinc-phosphide toxicant added.
Hardin says the rats' prefer-
ence for different bait coupled
with their lack of movement has
made it difficult to locate what
few rats remain.
"We were dealing with rats
that just don't move as much as
we thought. It appears that some
of them don't need to go very
far; they can get all the suste-
nance they need from around the
housess]" he explained.
It was originally thought the
rats would ingest some of the
poisoned bait before traveling
back to their burrows to die.
Hardin said he thinks many did


that, but some of the animals
have changed their habits.
Also, the traps being set now
are baited with a combination of
peanut butter and cantaloupe
after workers discovered the rats
were more attracted to the fruit.
Any rats found in the traps will
be euthanized, Hardin said
"We really believe that we are
down to very few animals now;
we have not been catching near-
ly as many in the last few
weeks," he said.
Hardin said as few as a dozen
of the rats may remain on the
island but that he "would feel
better about a number after this."
After this round of trapping,
which Hardin said will end some
time in October, workers will
likely do one last round of toxic
baiting where they believe the
core population to be located.
"We feel like we need to go
into the core area with one more
focused round of toxic baiting.
We really feel like we're down to
it," he said, noting residents will
receive notification by mail
before baiting begins.
Any resident who spots a
Gambian rat should call (866)
484-7586.


Mendendez to


pay city $4.50


Commissioner
mistakenly
*used envelops
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Key West City Com-
missioner Jose Menendez will
likely have to pay the city
about $4.50 for envelopes that
bear the city emblem he used
to mail out letters asking his
District 5 constituents to
reelect him Oct. 2.
Because the envelopes
show the emblem in the top
left corner, they're not
allowed for any use outside
official city business.
Menendez scratched out
City Hall's post-office box
number and wrote his own,
P.O. Box 1, so he would
receive any return mail from
his letters. He also changed
the last four digits of the zip
code to match his own.
Menendez is proud to own
that post-office box, as he
earned it from working as a
window technician at the post
office for 24 years.


The letters were post-
marked Sept. 10 and distrib-
uted to about 75 residents in
his district. The envelopes are
priced at about 6 cents each,
according to Finance Director
Roger Wittenberg.
The letters are also missing
a "paid political advertise-
ment" disclosure, which is
required, according to Monroe
County Supervisor of
Elections Harry Sawyer.
"Any questions of misuse
of municipal property would
generally be reviewed by the
[state] Commission on
Ethics," City Attorney Shawn
Smith said.
If any feel inclined, any
Key West voter could file a
complaint to the Florida
Elections Commission or
Commission on Ethics for the
lack of disclosure or the city
emblem. However, some city
officials say the incident is
minor, shows no malicious
intent and doesn't warrant fur-
ther scrutiny.
Menendez could not be
reached before press time.

Waterfront to stay?


Corporation
could assume
Pantelis' lease
By PAMELA J. SUAREZ
Keynoter contributor


Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson says the city, longtime
business owner Buco Pantelis and
an undisclosed local corporation
are close to hammering out a deal
that would save Pantelis' land-
mark Waterfront Market at 201
William St. in Old Town.
The popular market's fate has
been in question since Pantelis
announced earlier this month he
would close his wholesale and
retail store in response to a city-
imposed rent increase and other
new lease terms.
"I've been brokering an agree-
ment between the individuals
involved," McPherson said
Thursday.
McPherson said the tentative
agreement would involve a cor-
poration purchasing the market
and assuming Pantelis' lease with
the city. While he would not dis-
close the names of those who are
making a bid to run the market,
McPherson said they are local
and not one of the area's large
developers.
Pantelis confirmed a deal is in
the works, and added he would
stay on to assist the new owners
with the transition.
"I'll still be here," he said.
Since the city owns the proper-
ty that houses the market, Key
West officials had negotiated a rent
increase and other terms with
Pantelis after his previous lease
expired in 2005. Pantelis verbally

Lane shifts planned
on 18-Mile Stretch

Northbound traffic is sched-
uled to shift east onto new pave-
ment late Thursday from about
mile marker 112 to 115 on U.S. 1
between Key Largo and Florida
City as part of the 18-Mile
Stretch reconstruction.
As part of the shift, the speed
limit for northbound traffic only
will be reduced to 35 mph in the
construction zone for about two
weeks.


agreed to those terms earlier this
summer, but asked for a delay until
Oct. 1 to finalize the documents.
However, earlier this month
he notified the city he would not
sign the lease but would instead
liquidate his business and close
its doors on Sept. 30.
An amended lease sent by
City Attorney Shawn D. Smith to
members of the Key West Bight
Board late in the week would
give Pantelis a 90-day out after
the lease's Oct. 1 start date.
Smith's cover letter says the
amendment is designed to allow
the market to continue operations
while Pantelis looks for a suitable
entity to take it over.
In the letter, Smith writes that
the amendment comes "at the urge
of the mayor, several city com-
missioners and the city manager."


McPherson said Thursday the
-lease terms with the new owner
would be the same as those to
which Pantelis had previously
agreed. The new tenant would
pay a base rent of $15,136 per
month, which would increase by
5 percent annually to a high of
just over $23,000 per month by
2016.
Recently, Pantelis said his
decision to close the market was
based solely upon financial
strains imposed by the new rental
terms, and he denied rumors that
personal issues and poor health
were preventing him from renew-
ing his 10-year lease.
"I'm doing OK," Pantelis said.
"I could do a suds run right now,
actually."
The Key West Bight Board
will vote on the lease amendment
when it meets at 9 a.m.
Wednesday at Old City Hall.

Waterfront plan on table


Committee
would review
all proposals
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


The Monroe County Com-
mission is set to approve an ordi-
nance aimed at preserving
what's left of the working water-
front in theKeys.
The commission convenes at
9 a.m. Wednesday at the
Marathon Government Center.
Premium property values are
inspiring many waterfront prop-
erty owners to sell to residential
developers. But the trend threat-
ens to shut down a key industry
in the Keys: fishing, and many
of the marine-related businesses
that go with it.
The ordinance would require
waterfront redevelopment' to
remain water-dependent and
would limit density.
It would establish a working-
waterfront advisory committee
that would review all proposals
to redevelop waterfront parcels.


In addition, the proposed rule
would require the county to hold
onto roads and paths that access
the water.
The proposed law has been in
the works for months, and last
week there was confusion over a
variety of drafts that were being
reviewed by county advisors.
Planning Director Andrew
Trivette, in a memo to the com-
mission, explained that the
process for developing the ordi-
nance is complex. The 103-page
document commissioners will
review includes a draft that was
approved by the Planning
Commission as well as two other
drafts that were reviewed by the
county's Marine and Port
Advisory Committee last week.
Also on Wednesday's agenda:
Approval to use $345,000
in county impact fees to build a
community center, playground,
skate park and other amenities at
the new public park on Big Pine
Key,
Approval to use $283,000
in impact fees to set up a crime
lab. Until last year, the Florida


Department of Law Enforce-
ment provided free lab space to
the county.
+ Approval of a contract with
the state to complete a detailed
survey of the historic buildings
in the Tavernier Historic
District. The district was estab-
lished in 2005. The county's
share of the cost would be
$25,000..
Approval to accept funding
from the Florida Department of
Transportation to pay $148,000
in salary for a bicycle and pedes-
trian planner/coordinator, a job
that will direct completion of the
Overseas Heritage Trail.
Several closed sessions
with County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton to discuss pending legal
cases, including ongoing litiga-
tion with the owners of the
Galleon Bay property on No
Name Key. They claim a county
taking of their land, on which
they want to build a resort.
+ A proposal to increase a
traffic penalty surcharges from
$3 to $5. As part of the penalty
of traffic tickets, the money pays
for traffic education programs.

City going greener


In new position,
Mannix to lead
new initiative
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Annalise Mannix sees Key
West through green-colored lens-
es after her recent change in job
title from city stormwater utility
manager to deputy assistant city
manager.
"I'm willing to take on any-
thing that will help the city,"
Mannix said. "I love the city and
city government."
Her first major project that
comes with added responsibility
is developing a strategic plan to
go with the City Commission's
decision to join the International
Council for Local Environmental
Initiatives' Climate Protection
Campaign, which will cost the
city $600 in membership fees and
thousands more in personnel and
studies.
The campaign milestones
include taking inventory for all
greenhouse gases released in the
city and developing a reduction
plan.
Mannix will work with vari-
ous city departments such as
Public Works to develop a strate-
gic plan for things such as
increasing Key West's recycling
rate. The current rate is about 6
percent of all garbage of the 150
- to 300 tons hauled to a Broward
County landfill a day.
Tackling the issue of increas-
ing efficiency will encompass


possibly swapping out streetlights
and city building bulbs for more
energy efficient ones such as light
emitting diode (LED). According
to findings from the Sierra Club,
U.S. cities have reported a com-
bined total of $10.4 million in
annual savings from simply
switching to LED bulbs.
Mannix says she wants to look
at renovating the dilapidated city
hall as long as the city is stuck
with the present building and
location at Simonton and Angela
streets. The windows, she said,
let cool air outside and the air
conditioning units could be locat-
ed higher.
She will look at the city's
vehicle fleet and explore fuel-
saving techniques.
"I think this gives the city
more of a concerted effort to
implement the strategies we've
talked about in the past," she said.
She's been the stormwater
utility manager for two and a half
years and started her 16-year
career with city at the Building
Department.
"The city has been making a
lot of promises along the right
lines of going green and con-
tributing to [Gov. Charlie Crist's]
policies on energy conservation,"
said City Manager Jim Scholl,
who created the new position.
Mannix "is very skilled and
experienced with these subjects;
she's doing the majority of it
already," he said. "We need
somebody to be recognized as
that focal point. I wanted her to
be our environmental manager, a

Commission debates

they want to provide a 99-year
lease for 6.6 acres on the
Truman Waterfront for the
Bahama Conch Community
Land Trust when it meets at Old

The trust proposes building
60 to 70 affordable units, an arts

more recognizable and more
authority-minded position."
Mannix will report directly to
Scholl. Her office hasn't
changed, just like her salary, but
Scholl said both are probable.
As far as getting to work on
adopting the Climate Protection
Campaign standards, Scholl said
it takes some preparation.
"We'll have an outside con-
sultant to survey all of our energy
issues," he said. "When that's fin-
ished and an analysis is done, it's
the city's job to put together strat-
egy."
-Scholl anticipates the cost to
reach the ballpark of $10,000. He
hopes some major changes will
occur soon.
"We need to replace city hall,"
he said. "Everything has a life
cycle to it."

Monroe County Circuit Court
Judge Mark Jones on Tuesday
didn't grant former Key West
Chief Code Officer Jim Young's
request that the city stop deleting
electronic files including e-
mails, but he also took the city to
task.
Young, fired by then-City
Manager Julio Avael on Oct. 13,
had sought the e-mails to bolster
his lawsuit against the city that
alleges wrongful termination.
He claims deleting the e-
mails violates "the retention
requirements for public
records."
In his decision, Jones said the
city produced many documents
for Young and spent more than
100 hours searching for docu-
ments he requested.
"Overall, the city of Key
West and the other defendants
have acted diligently and in
good faith in terms of attempting
to comply with the plaintiff's
voluminous and burdensome
public-records request," the
decision reads.
However, Jones also
expressed displeasure with how


lies for city


long it took the city to produce
the records.
Young filed his public-
records request Oct. 16, three
days after he was fired. He did-
n't get his requested documents
until June 25.
"The defendants provided no
satisfactory explanation for this
eight-month delay," Jones' state-
ment reads.



The city has
allowed a
computer
forensics
expert to
search for the
documents
officials say
were deleted.


Young and his attorney Hugh
Morgan say the documents pro-
vided were not the sensitive doc-
uments that they say provide
more information that his firing
was unjustified.


The city has allowed a com-
puter forensics expert to search
for the documents officials say
were deleted.
"The* uncontroverted evi-
dence shows that there was a
pattern of noncompliance in
respect to the sensitive docu-
ments," Morgan said. "The city
either withheld or destroyed the
documents most sensitive to Jim
Young's termination and the
city's computer technician testi-
fied that they had been deleted
from the computer database."
"The city used the best faith
they could in response to the
request," City Attorney Shawn
Smith said. "The city worked
hard to meet the records
demands."
Young worked for the city for
roughly three years.
Since his firing, he's been on
a nine-month mission to collect
information on city, employees
and actions that led him to file
two lawsuits against the city, the
one for wrongful termination
and the other over the public
records.
The wrongful-termination
case is filed under the Whistle
Blowers Act, which protects
employees from getting fired for
discovering violations commit-
ted by superiors.
Judge David Audlin will hear
the wrong-termination case at an
unknown date.


Keys get encouraging sewer news


DEP secretary,
top Republican
talk financing
BY DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

Tallahassee is signaling an
increased willingness to finan-
cially help the Keys meet their
state-mandated advanced waste-
water needs by the 2010 deadline.
Rep. Stan Mayfield, chairman
of the state House Environmental
Resources Council, and Mike
Sole, secretary of the state
Department of Environmental
Protection, told Keys lawmakers
Friday that money will be avail-
able if the county quickly pro-
vides a list of sewer projects
ranked by "sequences and priori-
ties."


The money would likely come
from DEP, which Sole said could
amend its 2007-08 budget in
November to provide money to
Keys wastewater projects.
County Administrator Tom
Willi told county Mayor Mario
Di Gennaro at the Friday gather-
ing at the Key Largo library that
his staff could have a draft report
to Mayfield's and Sole's offices
by Oct. 15.
State Rep. Ron Saunders, who
.orchestrated Mayfield's and
Sole's visit, said the fact that
Mayfield, a Vero Beach
Republican who also sits on the
Legislative Budget Commission,
took the time to address county
and local officials indicates sig-
nificant money may finally head
to the Keys.
"Without [Mayfield], we're


not going to get it," Willi said
after the meeting.
County Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy was also optimistic.
"Good ideas are flowing.
We're finally on the right track,"
she said;.
Since 2002, the state has given
the Keys about $48 million for
the construction of various waste-
water projects, Sole said. Keys
projects also received about $123
million from the state revolving
loan fund, he said.
Elizabeth Wood, senior
administrator of county sewer
projects, said it would cost about
$660 million to meet the state
advanced wastewater mandate.
Sole said this latest initiative is
a way to identify specific projects
and how much they will cost to
complete, rather than "each year
appropriating an arbitrary sum of
money and not being consistent."

Price atthe pump Keys firm gets $32M


Ven-A-Care
blew whistle
on price fraud

French pharmaceutical giant
Sanofi-Aventis agreed to pay
$190 million to settle allegations
of fraud in the pricing and mar-
keting of a drug used for cancer
treatment side effects, the U.S.
Justice Department announced


Monday.
The case arose from a lawsuit
filed under the False Claims Act
by Ven-A-Care of the Florida
Keys Inc., which will receive
about $32 million under the set-
tlement.
Ven-A-Care is a small special-
ty pharmacy created in the late
1980s that provides infusion,
inhalation, and injectable phar-
maceuticals to seriously ill outpa-

from AIDS.
The civil settlement involves
an alleged scheme by Sanofi-
Aventis to artificially inflate the
price of the drug Anzemet,
increasing the cost of government
reimbursements for the drug.
U.S. officials say the result was
that false Anzemet claims were

Crist: Build to spark economy


Governor says
construction jobs
need to increase
Associated Press

Gov. Charlie Crist has recom-
mended trying to spend the state
out of its economic doldrums,
proposing to expedite highway
and school building and use state
money to help first-time home
buyers in an effort to spur con-
struction.
The state is more than $1 bil-


lion over budget and legislative
leaders are looking for ways to
cut the spending plan.
While proposing to cut spend-
ing in some areas, Crist argued
that the way to end Florida's eco-
nomic troubles is to tap into state
reserves to jump-start spending
on big projects that will fuel the
construction industry.
Construction increases employ-
ment, which fuels spending, which
brings in state tax dollars, solving
the state's financial crisis, the
thinking goes.


"While we put our fiscal house
in order, we also need to take
measures to stimulate Florida's

Keys Business


Keys firm blows the whistle


VEN-A-CARE / From 19

into paying vastly exaggerated
prices by exploiting a health care
system based on trust and fair
play," Miami U.S. Attorney R.
Alexander Acosta said.
Sanofi-Aventis, based in Paris,
said in a statement that the case
involved predecessor company
Aventis Pharmaceuticals Inc.
from September 1997 to June
2004, before the formation of the
new company. Sanofi-Aventis
acknowledged no wrongdoing.
The bulk of the settlement will
be paid to the federal govern-
ment, with a $10.2 million fund
created for states and the District
of Columbia to pursue potential
Medicaid overpayment claims
for the drug. Medicaid is the gov-


ernment-funded health care pro-
gram for the poor.
In addition, Sanofi-Aventis'
subsidiary in the U.S. reached a
five-year agreement with the
Health and Human Services
Department to report sales and
manufacturer's prices for its
drugs covered by federal pro-
grams.
Ven-A-Care is no stranger to
whistle-blowing and big
bucks because of it.
In the past, its four partners
accused a global pharmaceutical
powerhouse of selling drugs to
the federal government'at illegal-
ly inflated prices.
The four split $26 million of
the $150 million that
GlaxoSmithKline agreed to last
September to pay the government
to -settle. claims that it over-


- briefs


charged for two drugs used to
treat cancer.
Whistle-blowing filing
lawsuits that expose rip-offs
against the government has
paid off before for the pharmacy
owners, resulting in rewards now
totaling more than $100 million.
"You just start digging, and it
starts coming out," Luis Cobo, a
Key West pharmacist who co-
owns Ven-A-Care, told the
Miami Herald in September.

Stirring things up in Marathon


Middle Keys students
make their way through
new culinary arts program
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon Middle and High School has a
new Culinary Arts Program, but teacher
Anthony Green says that doesn't mean kids
should come to class every day expecting a
meal.
Green says he wants to teach students
management and professionalism, along
with the basic mathematical and communi-
cation skills it requires to make it in the culi-
nary world so important to the Keys
economy.
"This is not geared toward creating
cooks, it's geared toward creating leaders in
the industry," Green said of the program.
Only a month into the program, Green
says the students have actually spent most of
their time in the classroom adjacent to the
spacious new kitchen packed with $350,000
worth of equipment.
They learn about everything from the his-
tory to the science of foods before they actu-
ally begin cooking.
"I'm still uncertain how to approach it;
it's a new program, never been taught
before," Green said. "Do [the students] want
to eat every day or do they want to learn the
science and what it takes to be in the food
industry?"


A 26-year-old Kingston native with a
thick Jamaican accent, Green came to the
United States in 2002 to study chef manage-
ment at Hocking College in Ohio. He said
his wife, Tanya, encouraged him to apply for
the position at the high school.
"She knew I wanted to teach and as soon
as'the opportunity presented itself, she said I
should apply. So I did and here I am," he
said.
Green said he visited several schools on
the mainland that have had a culinary pro-
gram for years to "learn some guidelines of
how to work and approach things."
The school is working toward achieving a
ProStart certification, whereby Green said
kids would be able to leave high school and
begin working immediately in the industry.
But should a student decide to attend a
culinary school, a ProStart certificate would
guarantee them a spot in school.
The Key West High School culinary pro-
gram, started in 2001 with the National
Restaurant Association's Education
Foundation, is a ProStart program. Coral
Shores High also has a culinary program.
On the evening of Marathon's first home
football game against Key West, several of
Green's students got a sneak peek at what
it's like to work in a busy kitchen. Kids from
the culinary program helped cater meals for
the new skybox seats on the second floor of
the new classroom building.
Green said it was a good experience for
the kids.


"They served it and presented it and saw
the expressions on the people's faces, so it
gave them some satisfaction," he said.
"I have a lot of kids, but once you get to
figure them out on an individual basis, it's a
wonderful experience," he said.

LEFT BEHIND IN KEYS WATERS: Croft Upchurch (left) and Charles Porter went to the
Islamorada Sandbar a week or so ago to hunt for sunglasses, jewelry or whatever other
treasures crowds might have left behind. Instead, along with their friend Ben Ignacio, they
ended up trash hunting. This is just some of the garbage the crowds left behind that the
Islamorada kids picked up.

Thirty of the state's 59 his-
toric lighthouses are still stand-
ing, but only six are open to the
public. The Key West
Lighthouse and Museum, 938
Whitehead St., is one of the six.
In keeping with Lighthouse
Day, the museum is premiering
its new video about the history
of the lighthouse, new audio
tours and a children's activity
room in the Keepers Quarters.

The Key West Lighthouse Museum and Keepers Quarters
Museum is one of only six Florida lighthouses still open to the
public.


In August 1861, all light-
houses along the coast of
Florida were dark except the
Key West lighthouse, under the
control of Barbara Mabrity, a
quiet supporter of the
Confederacy.
In 1864, the 82-year-old
lighthouse keeper faced accusa-
tions of Confederate sympathies
and was asked to retire. Mabrity
refused and was removed from


her position.
William Bethel, a grandchild
of Mabrity, was named light-
house keeper in 1889 and his
wife, Mary, served as assistant
keeper from 1891 to 1908,
when her husband died. She
became the lighthouse keeper
and remained on the job until
she retired in 1913.
That's only part of the histo-
ry you'll learn on a visit.

Latest fest brings out latest craziness


Womenfest fair
brings it all
on Duval Street
Didn't get out to many of the
Womenfest events this year,
but I did see the street fair
from my vendor tent.
Fran Decker, fellow artist
and partner in the Sodu Gallery,
and I set up a booth in the 700
block of Duval Street and had a
ringside seat for the street fair
and afternoon of entertainment
on the stage set up at Angela
Street.
Decker and I agreed it was
some of the best people-watch-
ing we'd ever seen. Interesting
people, including drag queens,
and interesting dogs, too.
The punk styles were fasci-
nating strange-colored hair,
spiky moussed-up styles and
elaborate tattoos.
Barbara, the barker for
Crabby Dick's Restaurant, was
a good subject. She loved the
music and danced, danced,
danced. The lively 71-year-old
was dancing in the street and
passersby couldn't get enough of
it. If she had a nickel (as my
mother, who's just a smidgen
older than Barbara, used to say)
for everyone who danced a few
steps with her, she'd be in Rio
right now.
Lots of Jack Russell terriers
out there, too. They seem to levi-
tate-at the ends of their leashes,
wiggling wildly whenever they
encounter another Jack Russell.
It's like watching a cartoon -
all you need are the puffs of car-
toon dust, some random excla-


mation
points and
a few
describers
like
"BAM,"
SA "ARF,"
"OOF."
Also,
:lots of
dogs wear-
Sing sun-
glasses and
Judi Bradford various
cute gar-
ments. One, in particular, had a
matching pink sun visor, collar
and leash.
A T-shirt on a woman in the
Womenfest booth next to us said
it all: "Key West, Nice dogs,
Strange people."
The first act on the stage was
the local Blessed Community
Gospel Choir with City
Commissioner Clayton Lopez
taking some vocal solos and
playing guitar.
Mayoral hopeful Jimmy
Weekley spent most of the after-
noon there, glad-handing and lis-
tening to opinions on the politi-
cal scene as he campaigns to
retake his old job. If there were
other candidates out there, I did-
n't see 'em.
Weekley may be the only per-
son on the planet who has been'
named an official honorary les-
bian. He was awarded the title
several yearsback and alluded to
it at a recent Key West Business
Guild meeting.
Rude Girl spun disks
between the live acts and kept
the energy of the event pumpin'.
Lenore Troia was the fea-
tured act and didn't disappoint.

But the team
must step up,
head coach says

The Marathon High School
golf team won its Tuesday
match against Palmer Trinity
at Sombrero Country Club,
but head coach Dean Carrigan
said the team will need to play
better in the future to win.
Carrigan said short-game
issues continued to plague the
Dolphins on a day when scor-
ing conditions at the course
were perfect. The team played
well off the tee but struggled
chipping and putting in its
176-182 victory over the
Falcons.
Senior Jay Hegland again
led the way for the Dolphins,
shooting an even-par 36 over
the back nine holes at the
country club. Carrigan said
Hegland played well enough
to shoot a 31, but even he fell
victim to short-game woes.
Hegland birdied 10 and 11
to begin his round, but three-
putted from 20 feet out to
bogey 12.
Following Hegland were
junior Josh Gratton, 45; senior
Mike Kuck, 46; and senior J.P.
McCabe, 49. Mcabe made his
first birdie of the season on
15.
Carrigan said other than
Hegland, the Dolphins all got

They play their first District

against Monsignor Pace at home
in Tommy Roberts Memorial

"It was something to be proud
of," Key West coach Robert
James said of Thursday's victo-

the defense was good and the
offense picked it up."
Young, who has begun to take
snaps from under center as well

At the net, Jennifer Subic's

"We played OK as far as

The Lady Eagles expected
the area around their outdoor

"He has more energy now,"
James said. "This was the best
game he's ever had."
The Conchs took a 3-0 lead
in the first quarter on a 22-yard
field goal by Thomas Daubs, a
strong-footed senior who trans-
ferred from Daytona Beach.
A 4-yard TD run by Young
and Daubs' conversion kick
increased the lead to 10-0 mid-
way through the second quarter.
That was the score at halftime,
though it could have been at
least 24-0 had not two long punt
returns for apparent touchdowns
been called back because of
penalties.
Key West put the game out of
reach early in the fourth quarter.
A 34-yard drive, highlighted by
a 23-yard Young-to-Rahming
screen pass, culminated when
Young ran 5 yards for a touch-
down.
James couldn't recall the last
time the Conchs recorded a
shutout. "It's been a while," he
said.
Key West, which is using a 3-
5 defensive scheme, has
allowed only seven points in the
last eight quarters.
"I like to think we have some
momentum," James said, "but
it's going to take practice and
hard work to be a ready for a
team like Pace."

Raiders swim


past Conchs


But golf team
beats shorthanded
N. Miami Beach
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

The Key West High School
swimming team was no match for
perennial power Ransom
Everglades, but several Conchs
set personal bests Tuesday at the
Ransom pool in Coconut Grove.
Sophomore Alessandra Hally
swam a personal-best time in two
events the 100-yard freestyle,
in which she finished second, and
the 200 freestyle, in which she
finished fourth.
Effie Ford, who set the Key
West record in the 100 backstroke
(1:07.13) in a meet last Saturday,
won the event again with a time of
1:08. She was also second in the
50 freestyle.
Also scoring points were
Rachel Kohler, who was third in
the 500 freestyle; Noelle Lark,
third in the 50 free, and Annabelle
McLeod, with a personal best and
fourth-place finish in the 500
freestyle.
The Key West girls were third
with 18 points behind Ransom's
49 and Carrolton's 27.


The boys' team lost to
Ransom, 40-14, though senior
Luke Knight set a school record of
22.36 in the 50 freestyle. He also
won the 100 freestyle.
Jake Brown won the 100 back-
stroke; Travis Stokes swam a per-
sonal-best 2:07.40 in the 200
freestyle, and Ben Covan lowered
his best time to 29.71 in the 50
freestyle.
The Conchs will swim against
Mater Academy and Marathon at
4 p.m. Friday at the Florida Keys
Community College pool, and
against Wellington in another
home meet at 10 a.m. next
Saturday.

Golf team wins
The Key West golf team went
to North Miami Beach on
Wednesday, only to discover that
its opponent had only two golfers.
Blake Oropeza lost, 38-44, but
freshman Jack Lockwood's 40
was 19 strokes better than his
opponent, so Key West won by 13
strokes.
Other Conchs played anyway,
with Casey Dion shooting 42,
Daniel Margil 44, Marco
Martinez 48 and Zack Kemp 51.
Key West will face Gulliver
Prep, Ransom Everglades and
Marathon at 11 this morning at
Sombrero Country Club.

Tough luck continues


for Lady Conchs


Key West
still winless
in volleyball
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Stretches of good play too
often dissolved into confusion
and easy opponents' points
last weekend as the winless
Key West High School volley-
ball team lost District 16-4A
home matches to Monsignor
Pace and Reagan.
The Conchs fell to Reagan,
25-14, 25-16, 25-19, after to
Monsignor Pace, 25-18, 25-
16, 25-18.
Key West has been swept in
four consecutive matches,
failing to win a game in 12
tries.
The Conchs tried to end
that streak Friday when they
played host to Mater Academy
in a .match completed too late
for results to be. included in
today's paper.
Despite the losses, the
Conchs, under new coach
Jessy Hulme, showed some
development. The 52 points
they scored against Pace last
Friday were 29 more than they
scored against the Spartans
the first time the two teams
met.


With Jessica Bodmer,
Victoria Brisson, Monica
Caceres and Danielle Hills
playing well, the Conchs kept
the games relatively close, but
in the end Pace had too much
athletic talent.
Whenever the Conchs
threatened; Pace would
answer, usually with a defini-
tive kill by Nathalie Desir off
a set by Elizabeth Torres.
Desir had 11 kills and Torres
had 11 assists.
On Saturday, before about
100 spectators, the Conchs
lost to a fundamentally better
Reagan team that improved to
2-3. "We just didn't make
many mistakes," said Reagan
coach Melissa Webb.
Key West had its best
chance in the second game
when it got off to a 6-0 lead
behind the serving of Bodmer.
But Reagan scored 20 of the
next 25 points.
The Conchs were down
only 21-19 in the third game
before reverting to their
uncertain ways. They couldn't
handle a serve. They hit balls
into the net and, with the last
one, Reagan walked off a win-
ner.
Key West will play Edison
at 2 p.m. today at the Bobby
Menendez Gym.
