P.J. on the mend

rubber duck
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

In one of the wilder surgical
procedures at the Marathon
Veterinary Hospital, doctors
Doug Mader and Sara Hall this
weekend pulled an intact rubber
duck from the belly of a 2-year-
old boxer named P.J.
"I have taken all sorts of
weird stuff out of dogs and cats
before, including a cell phone
from a pooch," Mader wrote in
an e-mail to the Keynoter.
"However, that duck was one of
the weirdest things that I have
seen. The silly dog swallowed it
whole!"
Key West dentist Ana Maria
Camerotti -said the dog was
chewing the bright yellow toy
when it suddenly disappeared.
"He was chewing, then I did-
n't hear it squeaking anymore,"
she said. "It went down in a mat-
ter of seconds."
Hall helped extract the
unscathed toy headfirst. Though

Budget nearly wrapped


Neugent looks at
voting no at
Friday hearing
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Monroe County Commis-
sioner George Neugent says he's
ready to repeat his precedent-


setting nay vote on the county's
budget.
"No business person would
take this approach in that you're
spending more than you're tak-
ing in," Neugent said of the pro-
posed budget for fiscal 2007-08.
"It does not address the issue of
reducing taxes as mandated by
the Legislature."


The County Commission
holds its final public hearing
Friday for the $373 million
budget for the coming year.
Property taxes account for $79.1
million of that proposed spend-
ing plan.
The hearing begins at 5 p.m.
at the Marathon Government
Center.

the surgery made for some color-
ful photos, she said the emer-
gency was quite serious.
The duck was large enough
that it could have stuck in P.J.'s
stomach and blocked the stom-
ach outflow. If it had moved
down, Hall said something of
that size could have easily rup-
tured the-dog's gastrointestinal
tract. Either of those outcomes
could have proved fatal.
Hall said avoiding such a
freak accident is not easy.
"You need to take in the tem-
perament of your dog," she said.
"If you have a dog that you know
will eat anything and everything
in sight, you should try to keep
things away from them."
In the meantime, P.J. is home
with his very grateful owner.

Effects on Keys a focus


WARMING / From 1

almost 30 percent of the United
States.
The GAO said the Interior,
Agriculture and Commerce
departments have failed to give
their resource managers the guid-
ance and tools they need com-
puter models, temperature and
precipitation data, climate proj-
ects and detailed inventories of
plant and animal species to
cope with all the biological and
physical effects from warming.
"Without such guidance, their
ability to address climate change
and effectively manage resources
is constrained," the report says.
White House officials dis-
agreed.
"President Bush is committed
to addressing climate and provid-
ing the agencies with the tools
they need to address this impor-
tant issue," said Kristen Hellmer,
a spokeswoman for the White
House Council on Environmental
Quality.
The GAO investigators
looked at four representative
areas:
The Florida Keys National
Marine Sanctuary.
Alaska's Chugach National
Forest.
+ Montana's Glacier National
Park.
+ Grasslands and shrubs man-


aged by the Interior Department's
Bureau of Land Management in
northwestern Arizona in the
Southwest.
From those studies, investiga-
tors concluded: "Climate change
has already begun to adversely
affect federal resources in a vari-
ety of ways. Most experts with
whom we spoke believe that
these effects will continue and
likely intensify over the coming
decades."
What turned out to be a 184-
page report was requested in
March 2004 by Sens. John Kerry,
a Democrat, and Republican
John McCain, when Kerry was
running for his party's presiden-
tial nomination. McCain is run-
ning for the Repulican nomina-
tion now.
Kerry wants legislation
requiring more climate change
science.
"We waited a long time for
this report to confirm the daunt-
ing prospect that climate change
is impacting our public lands
from coast to coast, and this
administration is ill-equipped to
respond," Kerry said.
Jamie Rappaport Clark, who
was director of the U.S. Fish &
Wildlife Service in the adminis-
tration of Democratic President
Bill Clinton and now is executive
vice president of Defenders of
Wildlife, called the report an
urgently needed early warning


for the nation.
"Global warming is and will
continue to contribute to species
extinctions, flooding of coastal
refuges and massive movements
of wildlife populations in search-
of more hospitable habitat," she
said. "Polar bears and other
imperiled species, wildlife
refuges, parks and myriad natural
resources are at risk, and
Congress clearly needs to pro-
vide more legislative direction
because the agencies have failed
to do so."
The effects are widespread.
On the Florida Keys' receding
coastlines, the climate threat
extends "not only to wildlife, but
also to humans who live on the
islands," the report says.
Bleaching of coral reefs in the
Florida Keys, too, is being caused
by the stress of warmer water,
which causes the coral to eject
microscopic algae that live with-
in its tissues. That could harm the
fishing and tourism industries,
because they are needed by fish
and other marine species and are
popular with snorkelers and
scuba divers.
James Cason, an assistant
interior secretary, told the GAO
that an agency task force with
almost 100 people began meeting
in April to study climate change,
and the U.S. Geological Survey
will spend $27 million for cli-
mate research in 2008.

Bug board lowers budget


But some critics
say it's still
much too high
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Florida Keys Mosquito
Control District trimmed another
$1 million from its property-tax
assessments for fiscal year 2007-
08 at Monday's final budget hear-
ing in Key Colony Beach.
Commissioner Dick Rudell,
who was pushing for $2 million
in cuts to $11 million, said he met
Comptroller William Southcott
halfway at $12 million, down
from $13 million proposed at the
board's Sept. 10 meeting.
A motion by Rudell to adopt
the $12 million number passed by
a 4-1 vote, with Commissioner
Bill Langstaff dissenting.
Langstaff said he preferred the
higher $13 million figure.
Southcott told the Keynoter
the "net effect on the budget is a
reduction of $250,000 from the
total budget. The $250,000 was
taken out of the district's contin-
gency fund," Southlcott said.
The total budget for the com-
ing year, including capital funds,
contingencies and reserves,
amounts to $19,776,300.
The millage rate adopted was
.4175, or 41.75 .cents per $1,000
of assessed property value. At
that rate, the owner of a $300,000


home in Monroe County would
be assessed $125.25.
The adopted millage rate is
17.46 percent below rollback, a
significant reduction from the 3
percent rollback mandated by the
state. Still, some who spoke at
Monday's hearing said the budg-
et puts too large a burden on
county residents.
Representatives fiom the Key
West, Marathon and Key Largo
chambers of commerce, as well
as Key Colony Beach Mayor
Clyde Burnett, urged the board to
be more responsible with taxpay-
er money.
Virginia Panico, executive
vice president of the Key West
chamber, said the budget for next
year remains nearly 40 percent
higher than annualized operating
expenses for the current year. She
also commented on the district's
policy to provide health insur-
ance to retired employees for
their entire lifetime.
Marathon Chamber of
Commerce Executive Director
Daniel Samess told the board it
has "a nice cushion" as far as
reserves and contingencies are
concerned and it should not con-
tinue to tax residents to add to
those.
The district is estimated to
have nearly $7 million in
reserves, with even more budget-
ed, for the coming year.
"Our businesses in Marathon


are stressed to the limit and we
want to see responsible budget-
ing," Samess said. "When year-
after-year your contingencies are
increasing, you're playing it too
safe."
Burnett warned the board if it
did not curb spending and hold
administrators responsible, come
election time, "you'll be out on
the street."
District Director Ed Fussell
addressed a list of recent spend-
ing, including new aircraft, main-
tenance, facility improvements
and vehicle replacement.
Fussell had a quick response
when asked by resident Daniel
Zieg how the district was able to
continue to pad reserves despite
having to address all these needs.
"I'll tell you what that is, it's
just damn good management," he
said.

KW Resort looking at rate hike


It will be
at least 21%,
possibly 57%
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The state Public Service
Commission is putting on hold a
requested 57.51 percent sewer-
rate increase for Stock Island
customers of KW Resort
Utilities, but the private utility
will likely be allowed to raise
rates by more than 21 percent
while the commission explores
the larger rate request.
The PSC meets Tuesday in
Tallahassee to consider imposing
what it calls an "interim rate
increase," a compromise rate the
utility will be allowed to impose
on its customers until the over-
sight board has a chance to
investigate the higher request.
The average residential sewer
bill on Stock Island, according to
documentation filed with the
commission by KW Resort, is
$39.20. The rate the utility wants
means the average monthly bill
would go up to nearly $62.


According to Kirsten Olsen,
public information officer for the
Public Service Commission, the
commission recommends an
interim rate increase of 21.44
percent, which means a residen-
tial bill would go up to $47.60.
The interim rate, if approved



The PSC has

increase.


next week, could be implement-
ed fairly quickly, Olsen said.
KW Resort Utilities will be
required to notify its 1,556 cus-
tomers before raising the rate.
The PSC has until April to
look into the 57.5 percent rate


increase.
"Staff believes it is necessary
to require further investigation
of this information, including
on-site investigations by staff
accountants and engineers."
reads the staff report that recom-
mends establishing an interim
rate increase.
Olsen said the policy of
implementing an interim rate
assures a utility isn't left finan-
cially strapped while the com-
mission investigates.
The interim rate is likely to
raise some Stock Island eye-
brows; the requested rate could
raise the roof.
Individual homeowners and
business owners have balked for
several years over the cost of
hooking up to sewers, though the
expense for Stock Island may
have been lower for some home-
owners than -the $4,500 many
other residents face.
Most of the controversy sur-
rounding the utility had to do
with unforeseen expenses of sev-
eral mobile-home parks connect-
ing to the infrastructure built by
the utility.
Monroe County partnered
with KW Resort, and as costs.


were cut the commercial proper-
ties were caught in the middle.
Nineteen properties ended up
having to pay for infrastructure
they expected the county or KW
Resort to pay for.
Bill Barry, spokesman for the
utility, said that outside of a 3
percent cost-of-living increase in


July, KW Resort Utilities "has
not had a general rate increase in
22 years."
He said the increase "will off-
set operating losses the utility
company has experienced for
several years due to a slow pace
of wastewater connections on
Stock Island."


Final hearing Friday


BUDGET / From 1

In June, the Florida Legis-
lature passed tax-relief legisla-
tion requiring local governments
to roll back property taxes.
Under the law, Monroe County
government is required to come
in with a budget 5 percent lower
than the existing one for 2006-
07.
Though the proposed revenue
from property tax for 2007-08 is
close to 5 percent below this
year, Neugent said making up
the difference from reserves is a
dangerous move.
"We've essentially taken $10
million from reserves to achieve
the legislative mandate and
we're drawing down our fund
balances," he said.
Peter Rosasco, whose
accounting firm took over the
budget in the llth hour when
County Administrator Tom Willi
suspended county Budget
Director Sal Zappulla in August,
warned against drawing down
those balances.
"Three years ago, you had
reserves of 50 percent of your
general fund," Rosasco told the
commission last week during the
first of three budget hearings.
"In this proposal, we're project-
ing an ending fund balance of a


little more than $9.5 million.
That, in my professional opin-
ion, is woefully inadequate. One
catastrophe, one hurricane,
would wipe that out."
"We may have technically
done what the state mandated by
using the fund balances,"
Neugent said. "But we did not
reduce ad valorem taxes by 5
percent."
The aggregate millage rate
for unincorporated Monroe
County is proposed at 2.73,
which means an average tax bill
of $273 per $100,000 of
assessed property value.
The problem for taxpayers is
the fact that assessed values
went up an average of 10 percent
countywide. Neugent said that
means many property owners
will see an increase in their tax
bills.
Last year, Neugent's was the
sole dissenting vote on the coun-
ty budget, a stand he took
because he opposed Willi adding
more than $5 million in expendi-
tures at the last moment.
More than $3 million was for
the purchase of a Stock Island
restaurant which the county
has since sold and $2 million
toward the sinking of the USS
Hoyt Vandenberg as an artificial
reef off Key West.

Wanted: your


lobster thoughts


State polling
fishermen
about rules
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Postcards inviting 1,780 peo-
ple to take an online survey about
state lobster rules hit the mail
Monday.
"We want to hear from all the
sectors in the lobster fishery,"
said Bill Sharp, biological admin-
istrator for the state Division of
Marine Fisheries Management.
Each of the' 1,780 people will
receive a special password to log
onto the 18 questions in the
online survey. "People should be
able to fill it out in about 15 min-
utes," Sharp said.
Every person who holds a
state license as a commercial lob-
ster trapper (approximately 600
people) or commercial lobster
diver (about 300) will receive one
of the .survey requests.
Commercial wholesale dealers
also will be asked to take part.
A sampling of recreational
divers and bully netters who hold
a state license also will receive a
survey card.
Recreational harvesters were
selected using a random process
based on locations where licenses
were sold. Fewer recreational
fishermen far outnumber com-
mercial harvesters, but will
receive fewer chances to com-
plete the survey.
"That's just a representative
sample," Sharp said. "The
[Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation] Commission is
well aware of how recreational
lobster divers are out there."
The survey password will not
identify who filled out the survey,
Sharp said.
In addition, the state agency
will hold a series of workshops
around the state in the middle of
October. The sessions will be
open to all.
No dates have been finalized,
but Sharp said he expects work-
shops in Key West and Marathon
sometime during the week of
Oct. 8.
The FWC's Lobster Advisory
Panel has been charged with
spearheading the overhaul of lob-
ster laws adopted piecemeal over


the decades. About half the mem-
bers live or work in the Keys.
The advisors will recommend
keeping size and bag limits,
while slowing or halting a sched-
ule to further reduce the number
of lobster traps allowed in state
water currently 490,000.
Some type of allocation sys-
tem for various segments of the
fishery was being considered.
A baseline indicates commer-
cial trappers now take 77 percent
of the annual lobster harvest,
while recreational fishermen take
22 percent. Commercial divers
take 5 percent, according to state
statistics.
If the allocation formula
changes notably for more than
two straight years, the state
would launch a review of the
fishery, according to recommen-
dations.
The survey also asks what
people think of a new mini-sea-
son license that would require
users to tag each of the six lobster
they are allowed to take from
Keys waters.
Recommendations from the
assessment will reach the state
FWC board at its December
meeting in the Keys.

Trap thief gets 3 months


2,000 stolen
following Wilma,
few returned
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A former Everglades City
boat captain who pleaded guilty
in one of the largest trap-theft
cases on record got off easy, says
one of his Florida Keys victims.
Joseph P. Marcellino, 41, was
sentenced to three months in the
Collier County jail followed by
six months of probation. He was
sentenced earlier this month.
"That's a slap on the wrist,"
Islamorada trap fisherman Gary
Nichols said. "This should have
been a major violation. I guess
they just don't have the penalties
in place to put these guys away."
Marcellino should have
received a prison sentence of at
least five years, Nichols said..
The veteran commercial fish-
erman called the massive theft of
an estimated 2,000 stone-crab
traps after Hurricane Wilma "the
most bizarre thing I've ever seen


If
in all my years of fishing."
According to the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, Marcellino collect-
ed traps from waters off Monroe
and Collier counties after
Hurricane Wilma blew across
the Gulf of Mexico in 2005.
He is accused ofretagging the
traps with state license tags
issued to his then-employer, City
Seafood of Everglades City.
Marcellino reportedly coop-
erated in helping to locate about
1,500 traps and offered informa-
tion on other possible suspects.
Investigation has not yet
resulted in charges against other
defendants, according to reports.
"The bad guy was the one on
the boat," Nichols said. "It's the
captain's responsibility. He can't
shunt that off to somebody else."
Everglades City commercial
fishermen worked with the FWC
to inspect more than 3,000 traps
during the 10-month investiga-
tion.
They identified more than
1,000 that were marked with
City Seafood tags, but had other
information identifying the real


owner.
Each plastic crab trap costs
$14, Nichols said. "By the time
you pour the cement and put a
rope and buoy on it, it's worth at
least $20."
Nichols said 88 traps taken by
Marcellino have been returned to
him.
"There's still a bunch over
there I have to go get," he said.
"It felt good to get some traps
back, almost everybody did.
That's the only good thing to
come out of this."
Authorities estimated 45
commercial fishermen about
half from the Keys were vic-
tims of the theft.
Marcellino pleaded guilty to
three counts of possessing anoth-
er fisherman's trap and 27 counts
of molesting a trap.
Nichols said trap robbing dur-
ing the current lobster season has
been bad, but other years have
been worse.
A family member saw evi-
dence of theft in about a quarter
of his trap line, he said.
"Maybe that's because tlfere
are no lobsters to steal," Nichols
said. "It has been very slow."

Keys Opinion


Village, history group

keep memories alive

In official state records, it's called the Florida Keys Memorial.
Here in the Keys, it's better known as the Hurricane
Monument in Islamorada.
This past week, residents and visitors alike have seen a flurry
of activity, construction barricades and warning tape draping the
Upper Matecumbe monument site.
As we reported Saturday, the village's restoration work will
bring back the bougainvillea that once softened the stone obelisk
and served as a special memorial for the victims of the 1935
Labor Day hurricane.
On Nov. 14, 1937, about 5,000 people gathered at mile mark-
er 81.6 for the original dedication.
Upper Keys historian Jerry Wilkinson notes that very little
new construction .had been completed on Upper Matecumbe
Key even two years after the killer storm.
The bougainvillea planted by the families of those lost and
those who survived was in keeping with the origin of
Islamorada's name, which is believed derived from an early
Spanish seafarer's description of an island that appeared purple
from the profusion of flowing plants.
The Matecumbe Historical Trust and the village's Landscape
Advisory Committee both endorsed the work underway.
As a historical aside, the original Florida Keys Memorial,
designed by the Federal Arts Project of/the Works Progress
Administration, cost $12,742 when it was built in 1937. Seventy
years later, the restoration work plus addition of a handicap
access ramp and landscaping will cost $107,193.
A new 40-foot palrm tree was just planted and the landscape
plan calls for more open spaces where people can gather.
Given the recent Labor Day memorial service held there, and
frequent use of the plaza for Memorial Day observances and
color guard assemblies, this is a public-works project that
deserves a big thank you to the village and those volunteers who
have loaned their expertise in restoring this very visible memo-
rial.

Keep tabs on your boat

A word of caution for boat owners in the Keys: Watch out.
A spate of boat thefts in the Upper Keys has prompted law
enforcement officials to issue a broad warning about securing
vessels, especially those near the water or in the water.
Investigation points to boats stolen for clandestine trips to
Cuba to smuggle migrants, including one such recovered boat
found being used for just that purpose.
A lock box around davit lift controls and securing motors are
just two precautions. Notify neighbors when you leave town.
And call Crime Stoppers at (800) 346-TIPS if you see anything
suspicious next door.

Politicians insulate themselves


EDITOR:
Many years ago in Washington state, I
used to be able to call my senator or con-
gressman's office and make an appointment
to see them and at the appointed time sit
across from them and bring up a subject I
felt necessary to talk about. That way there
was no buffer as to how I felt about some-
thing. They got the straight story.
As you know, today when you write a
letter to senators Mel Martinez or Bill
Nelson and Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, at
best you get back a form letter on the sub-
ject you wanted to go over with. I would
imagine an aide reads the letters, classifies
it as for or against a subject and logs it in as
such and you get the appropriate form letter
in return. Our elected officials get a very
watered-down appraisal of a subject from
his or /her aides.
I think it would be beneficial to all con-
cerned if the senators and representatives
had to read every 10th or 20th letter they
receive just to have a more hands-on feel as


to what voters are concerned about. It
would be even better if once a month they
could sit down with a.family in their home
and let the family express their thoughts on
how the world is turning and how the politi-
cian is seeing it.
I think our politicians have become so
insulated from the people that they just
don't have a true handle on what we really
feel.
Several months back, I was reading the
Ocala newspaper and in it was a letter from
a reader to Sen. Martinez. I thought maybe
this was the only way he would probably
ever read an actual letter. Often I feel the
political leaders and I are living in two dif-
ferent worlds and theirs isn't the real one.
Nothing takes the place of a face-to-face
conversation where both parties are willing
to listen. It's unfortunate for all of us this
will never take place.

Here are some more ideas to fix insurance


EDITOR:
I have been following the progress (or
lack thereof) in the quest for lowering insur-
ance rates in Florida. I have looked at the
names given by Fair Insurance Rates in
Monroe who are supporting the effort to
reduce rates and claims.
I noted that not one member of FIRM is
an active or retired insurance-claims person.
As a retired insurance person with seven
years as an agent and insurance consultant
with one of the two largest insurance com-
panies in the United States and 24 years as
an adjuster and regional supervisor, I offer
the following suggestions for FIRM to pur-
sue with state Rep. Ron Saunders.
Require the insurance companies to
increase their reserves to pay claims before
going to the re-insurance companies. -
A true no red-lining of certain counties
or areas by the insurance companies, thus
spreading the risk to all counties in Florida.
Require insurance companies to offer
broader coverage, i.e., if the company sells
auto coverage, require it to offer homeown-
ers coverage also, thus spreading the risk
over a larger area, interior as well as the
coast line.
Instead of importing outside adjusters
to handle catastrophe claims, have Florida
adjusters handle such claims and the import-
ed adjusters handle the regular everyday
claims. Local adjusters are more familiar
with labor rates, material costs and repair
facilities. Catastrophe adjusters overpay
claims to hurry up and close as many claims
as possible in order to return home.
More supervision of claims and a
review process to better control the over-
payment of claims.
Agents selling homeowners and wind-


storm coverage are supposed to write cover-
age on replacement costs of the building.
Some coverages are sold on the purchase
price, which includes the land and/or lot.
All homeowners and windstorm coverage
should be based on the local building guide
for replacementof that building.
+ No bonuses, raises or stock options be
allowed to any chief executive officers of
insurance companies if the company has
shown a loss and is requesting a rate
increase through Tallahassee.
Eliminate, restrict or at least control
the insurance companies' lobbyists in
Tallahassee. No gifts, dinners, vacations or
trips to the islands for legislators should be
allowed.

Big Pine Key


plan off the table


Skeeter's owner
wanted to build

housing complex
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County
Commission will likely vote
today to refund more than
$8,000 in development applica-
tion fees, but the owner of
Skeeter's Marina on Big Pine
Key is not giving up.
Richard Beal has been trying
to get approval for a proposed
housing project on his property
that would include seven mar-
ket-rate units, 28 affordable
units and 8,200 square feet of
commercial space.
In June, Growth Management
Director Andrew Trivette sent a
letter to Beal saying the county
would be unable to enter into an
agreement on the proposed Caya
Place because the proposal
would not provide enough miti-
gation to offset the development.
Growth on Big Pine is
severely limited because of the
island's endangered species,
especially Key deer. A habitat
conservation plan adopted last
year limits to 200 the number of
new homes built over the next


20 years.
To allow even that number of
new homes, the county needed
to obtain an incidental take per-
mit to allow for the impact of
growth on the key deer popula-
tion. That permit, issued by the
U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service,
was issued in June 2006.
Now Beal says he's applying
for his own incidental take permit.
"If we're going to [build]
anything on Big Pine, where
better to do it," he said, noting
his parcel borders the U.S. 1
commercial district.
According to Trivette, the
county's incidental take permit
requires a certain level of miti-
gation for new development.
Mitigation usually means a
prospective builder buys sensi-
tive lots and donates them to the
county for conservation.
In the letter, Trivette told
Beal the county's permit covers
individual landowners.
Beal said the development
would have been aimed at medi-
an-income residents, offering
units for purchase. Initially, Beal
had proposed selling the units
for somewhere in the mid-
$300,000 range, which put them
above the county's guidelines
for moderately priced housing.


Coastal Cleanup


a statewide clean sweep


Thousands
participate
statewide
Associated Press

Thousands took to the
beaches and waterways this
weekend across Florida as part
of the Ocean Conservancy's
annual worldwide Coastal
Cleanup.
"We're going fo be living in
a cleaner environment,"
Danielle Galavan, 18, said
Saturday as she picked up
debris in West Palm Beach.
"You don't want to walk along
... and see all this trash."
About 1,000 volunteers
turned out for the project at
John D. MacArthur State Park
in Palm Beach County, said
Lourdes Ferris, executive
director of Keep Palm Beach
County Beautiful, one of the
event's sponsors.
"We've had some record
numbers of volunteers," Ferris
said.
Thousands more collected
debris across the state from
river banks, beaches, and lake-
fronts.
"It's definitely the right


thing to do," said Tricia
Clarke, who helped collect
trash in Delray Beach. "We
live in such a beautiful place,
and I think we should be tak-
ing care of it."
Last year, more than
350,000 volunteers worldwide
removed about 7 million
pounds of debris from 34,500
miles of coastlines and water-
ways, and ocean, river and
lake bottoms, according to the
conservancy.
Of the 7.7 million pieces of
debris collected in 68 coun-
tries last year, cigarettes and
cigarette butts accounted for
roughly 1.9 million. It was the


sixth consecutive year ciga-
rettes topped the list.
Since 1986, more than 6.5
million volunteers in the proj-
ect have removed 116 million
pounds of trash from beaches
and waterways in 127 coun-
tries, according to the
Washington-based environ-
mental advocacy group. The
group will release results from
Saturday's cleanup early next
year.
"It's an education process
to teach people, 'Don't litter
in the first place,'" said Larry
Weber, director of Keep
Brevard Beautiful, which had
about 1,700 volunteers on
Saturday who picked up some
30,000 pounds of trash.

College pinpointing dorm locales


Tennis courts
arelooked at
as possibility
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Florida Keys Community
College is eyeing campus tennis
courts for dormitory housing at
its Stock Island campus.
Another potential location is
on the other side of the school's
Public Safety Building, opposite
the tennis courts where a parking
lot now sits.
"Its still very preliminary,"
Jim Hendrick told the Keynoter.
"But the modular approach is
probably the most effective way
of building now."
Hendrick is the former
Monroe County attorney doing


community service for the col-
lege as part of his sentence on
bribe-related convictions. His
focus is on student housing.
He said the second location is
ideal for modular homes with
prefabricated wall panels, he
said.
That kind of housing is
"shipped to the site and then site-
assembled," said architect Bert
Bender, whose firm completed
the college's master plan.
"There are a lot of possibili-
ties," he added.
"Its pretty neat when you see
the sampling, of it," college
spokeswoman Lydia Estenoz
said.
Bender added that the idea is
simply being "investigated" and
no action has been taken.

planners] to discuss possible
sites for housing," Bender said.
"It's so preliminary at this
point."
Bender said replacing or
moving the tennis courts has also
been discussed, but there is one
possible hurdle tied to that spe-
cific site it's in a velocity
zone, meaning an area subject to
hurricane waves.
That's why facilities like ten-
nis or basketball courts would
typically be constructed there
rather than housing or class-
rooms


"You can't impede the flow
of water going through that
area," he said.
Estenoz said the cost of con-
struction would be substantially
below the average residential
costs that are $400 to $450 per
square foot, and closer to $100
per square foot.
As part of his sentence fol-
lowing his conviction on federal
conspiracy, witness tampering
and obstruction charges,
Hendrick must complete 2,500
hours of community service.
He's devoted 500 hours of that to


the college.
College representatives,
including President Jill
Landesberg-Boyle, have
expressed excitement at having
Hendrick's skill and expertise at
their disposal.
"His services will not only
benefit our students but the
entire community, because when
you solve housing for any seg-
ment of our community, you
alleviate the problem for every-
one," Landesberg-Boyle has pre-
viously said.


State finds condos in violation


Some rented
despite DCA
agreement


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The Saltponds Condominiums
at 3635 Seaside Drive in Key
West are in violation of a 1998
settlement agreement that stipu-
lates each affordable unit in the
complex must be owner-occu-
pied, according to the state
Department of Community
Affairs.
In a letter dated Aug. 14, DCA
attorney Shaw Stiller notified
Robert Consroe, president of the
Saltponds Condominium
Association Inc., and three co-
owners of unit 310, Eric Sindone,
Patrick Cahill and-Tracy Neuhas.
Unit 310 was found to be in
violation of the settlement agree-
ment, which says any "afford-
able -housing unit being pur-
chased is to be used and occu-
pied solely as the buyer's pri-
mary residence for permanent
living purposes."
The settlement is between
DCA and owners Key West Salt
Ponds II Ltd., contractor Key
Iron Works and the city.
SAccording to records com-
piled by the Monroe County
Property Appraiser's Office,
several homeowners who bought
units under affordable-housing
deed restrictions do not live in
them.
Owners that should be living
in the units are living every-
where from Summerland Key to
New York and New Jersey,
according to the tax rolls.


Overall, 108 of the 168 con-
dos should be owner occupied
because the 108 units are desig-'
nated as affordable housing,
according to the settlement
agreement.
And according the city's legal
department, 25 more units are in
a comparable situation to 310
and should be receiving similar


Several

letters from DCA before long.
"The department requests
that the association and the own-
ers of the property provide writ-
ten confirmation to the depart-
ment that Unit 310 is being
occupied by the record owner of
the property," the DCA letter
reads.
Even though the affordable
units cannot be rented, a legiti-
mate corporation with 10 or
more employees could rent
rooms to those in employees, the


settlement says.
The issue has received ample
attention from city representa-
tives, as it's been addressed
repeatedly at Community
Housing Committee and
Alliance for Affordable Housing
meetings.
At their Monday meeting,
alliance members discussed the
paradox of forcing out renters
from their affordable units when
the lack of affordable housing is
Key West's biggest problem.
But they determined they
stand by DCA's mandate that the
owners must occupy the afford-
able units rather than collect rent
from tenants, city Housing
Coordinator Paul Clayton said.
The renters will either be
forced to leave or buy their units,
which could range from
$245,000 to $250,000. Some
people are paying $400,000 for
market- rate units.
Because Key West is desig-
nated an Area of Critical State
Concern, DCA intervenes in
cases it might not in other
regions of the state, according to
DCA Director of Public Affairs
Jon Peck. In this situation, the
agency noticed a violation so it
appealed the 1998 building per-
mits.
According to a Web site
advertisement, the Taporowski
Team, a Realtor family dubbing
themselves "Saltponds special-
ists," says the condominiums
consist of "three buildings sur-
rounding a custom pool with spa
and a tennis court for leisure-
time activities."

Alyson Crean contributed to this

Crashes mar


Poker Run


Friday busy
for investigators
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Several traffic accidents were
reported countywide, including
one fatality early Friday, during
the 35th Florida Keys Poker Run.
The event lures thousands of
motorcyclists to the Keys every
September, though a glut of traf-
fic typically leads to an increase
in accidents over the weekend.
Anthony Castellano, 70, was
killed Friday after colliding with
a sport utility vehicle near mile
marker 49 in Marathon. The
Debary resident's 36-year-old
passenger, April Castellano, was
airlifted to Jackson Memorial
Hospital after sustaining serious
injury in the accident. The extent
of her injuries is unknown.
According to Deputy Becky
Herrin of the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office, eight traffic
accidents occurred in Monroe
outside Key West over the week-
end. Castellano was the only
fatality.
All but two of the accidents
involved motorcycles. The fol-
lowing is preliminary informa-
tion Herrin gathered on the week-
end's incidents:
Two motorcycles were
involved in an accident at 11 a.m.
Friday at mile marker 101.4. One
person was injured and taken to
Mariners Hospital.
A single motorcycle
crashed at mile marker 27 Friday
at 4:02 p.m. No other vehicles
were involved and the rider was
transported to Fishermen's
Hospital.
A vehicle and motorcycle
were involved in an accident at


mile marker 4.5 Friday, 5:06 p.m.
One patient was taken to Lower'
Keys Medical Center.
Traffic was blocked off on
the Seven Mile Bridge at 7:15
p.m. Friday after an accident
involving a motorcycle and a
vehicle. One person was taken to
Fishermen's Hospital.
Key West Police Department
spokeswoman Christie Phillips
said there were 19 traffic -inci-
dents within the city over the
weekend. She said five of those
involved motorcycles and none
were serious.
Phillips said 125 traffic cita-
tions were issued and eight driv-
ers were arrested for driving
under the influence. Thirty
seven arrests were made.

Southernmost House
on agenda Thursday

The Key West Planning
Board on Thursday is slated to
discuss a proposal to turn the
Southernmost House at 1400
Duval St. into a 150-seat restau-
rant.
The meeting is at 6 p.m. at
Old City Hall on Greene Street.
But the applicant, the Craig

Halpern have requested the item
be tabled until Oct. 18. The
Planning Board tabled the deci-
sion at its Aug. 30 last meeting.
The proposal has come with
an overwhelming amount of
objection from neighbors of the

Duval Street in Key
West fills up with Poker
Run participants. As
usual, the weekend
was filled with
crashes. One person,
from Debary near
Daytona Beach, was
killed in a Marathon
accident.

Final budget

hearing also

is tonight
Keynoter Staff

At a special meeting tonight,
the Key West City Commission
will consider a 10-year lease
agreement between Southard
Market Inc., the Caroline Street
C6rridor and Bahama Village
Community Redevelopment
Agency for the Waterfront
Market, 201 William St.
If the lease is approved, it
would go into effect Oct. 1. The
market will most likely be sold
to Raymond Vasquez and Alan
Perez.
Current owner Buco
Pantelis said he's kept some-
what in the dark about the deal-
ings, but said he is ready to
work with the city, Perez and
Vazquez to come up with a


compromise for everyone.
"Were trying to work on it,"
Vazquez said. "We're not mak-
ing any promises, but we're
trying."
Vazquez said he and Perez
have been working with Port
Operations Manager Marilyn
Wilbarger and seek a 20-year
lease, although they would
have to adhere to the 10-year
lease between Pantelis and the
city if it passes.
Also on tap tonight is the
final hearing for the 2007-08
city budget..-
Last week, the commission
passed a millage rate of 2.0354
before approving the proposed
$163,153,579 total budget. Of
that, $38,531,345 comprises
the day-to-day operating fund.
Tonight's meeting is at 6
p.m. at Old City Hall on Greene
Street.

West hits a milestone


Utility worker
marks 50 years,
still on the job

A lot has changed in the
Florida Keys in the past 50 years,
and the Florida Keys Electric
Cooperative's Willie West has
seen it all.
In September 1957, a 22-year-
old West worked his first day at
the member-owned utility that
provides electricity from the
Seven Mile Bridge north to the
Miami-Dade County line.
Now, five decades later, he is
the longest-standing.employee at
the co-op. The utility recently
celebrated his milestone anniver-
sary with a companywide dinner
party at the Elks Lodge in
Tavemier.
West was presented with a
collage of his company photos
framed and signed by all the
employees, a money tree and
other anniversary gifts.
The co-op "would be a better
company if there were more
employees like Willie," Chief
Executive Officer Scott
Newberry said. "He is dedicated,
hard-working and loyal, and an
irreplaceable member of our
Fleet Maintenance Department
and our company."

Not many people can claim the same employer for 50 years.
But the Electric Cooperative's Willie West can, and he shows no
signs of slowing down.

Mortgage woes
can be addressed
numerous ways
McClatchy Tribune

As people struggle to make
rising mortgage payments and the
number of homes nationally
entering foreclosure breaks
records, homeowners are plagued
by the vision that they will be
thrown out of their homes.
The threat could become real
if you are procrastinating, hoping
for the best and ignoring monthly
payments you cannot afford.
But you might be able to hold
onto your home if you take the
threat seriously and go into action
now.


When a person gets far behind
in making mortgage payments,
options dwindle. And" if they are
within days of losing their home
- or the point when frantic peo-
ple tend to show up for the first
time at the attorney's door a
painless escape is difficult.
Instead, explore the following.

Can you refinance?
If you have good credit, are
not behind on mortgage pay-
ments and know that your month-
ly payments are adjusting to a
level you cannot afford, try to
obtain a new mortgage.
It's probably not going to be
as easy as in the past. The hous-
ing mess has caused lenders to go
out of business, and remaining


lenders have tightened qualifica-
tions for obtaining loans. That's
one reason why it's critical to act
while your credit history is in
good shape.
If you are doing OK, and the
clock is ticking toward monthly
payments you aren't going to be
able to handle, be careful not to
be sidetracked by a broker who
will not deliver what you need,
said Gerri Detwiller, author of the
"Ultimate Credit Handbook" and
analyst for www.credit.com.
Some mortgage brokers will
drag out the loan process, sug-
gesting that you will be receiving
a loan, and then telling you days
or weeks later that they cannot
find a lender to grant one at an
attractive rate.

MORTGAGE / From .11

Go to a bank or credit union
that lends directly to individuals.
Be suspect if a broker merely
pulls your credit report. Instead, a
serious one will be verifying your
income, pulling tax forms and
getting an appraisal of your
home.
To make sure the deal is solid,
request a lock on the loan in writ-
ing from the lender.

Seek lender's help
If you can't refinance to easier
terms, turn to your existing
lender for some relief.
You probably won't be going
to the lender directly, however.
Rather, you will talk to a service,
which is the company that sends
you your mortgage bills and col-
lects your payments,
This can make the negotia-
tions somewhat complicated. If
the service hasn't been given the
leeway by your lender to give
you a break, you could have trou-
ble.
But lenders often would rather
avoid the costs associated with
taking back a person's home and
putting it up for sale.

The Marathon and Lower

American Cancer Society. It's at
Sombrero Country Club.
The actual relay is April 11
and 12 at the Marathon
Community Park. For more
information, call Kristen
Brenner 664-1453.


Call the service, using the
telephone number on your mort-
gage bill, but ask to speak with
the "loss mitigation department."
This is the department that would
have the authority to negotiate,
said Odette Williamson, an attor-
ney for the National Consumer
Law Center.
Tell them: "I'm interested in
doing a modification on my
loan," she said. They might also
refer to it as a workout.
"There is an unprecedented
push to do workouts,"
Williamson said.
You should tell the agent that
you cannot afford the payments
and ask them to modify the pay-
ments.
If the lender offers you a mod-
ification that you know won't
solve the problem, don't agree to
it, Williamson said.

Seek counseling
To be successful negotiating
with a service, you need to be
prepared.
.Before approaching the ser-
vicer, review your finances in
depth so that you can tell them
with certainty what you can
afford, not afford, and why. That
means doing a detailed budget.
You can receive help from a
counselor approved by the feder-
al government. You can find
housing counselors who help
people avoid foreclosure through
the- office of Housing and Urban
Development at www.hud.gov/
or by calling (800) 569-4287.
Besides budgeting help, these
counselors can negotiate with
your service. They will also be
able to tell you whether you
would be better off selling your
home.

West sees utility grow


WEST / From 11

West joined the co-op on the
line crew, helping install the first
electric poles for growing neigh-
borhoods from Marathon to
North Key Largo.
On one of the company's first
eight trucks, the crew carried an
air compressor to run a jackham-
mer. They used the jackhammer,
picks and shovels to chip holes in
the coral rock to set the area's


first wooden power poles.
The electric cooperative itself
was only 17 years old when West
was hired. He has watched the
co-op's customer base increase
over 10 times and the fleet size
multiply from those first eight
vehicles to more than 70.
West, originally from Georgia,
worked briefly for a crop-duster
in Homestead and then for a con-
tractor in the Keys. before finding
his "home" at the co-op.

Sell your home
If you can't modify your loan
so it works, you might be able to
get your lender to delay the auc-
tion on your home for 30 to 60
days while you try to sell your
home.
"They are likely to do this if
you can fax a sale agreement with
a closing date," Williamson said.
Be aware that with the market
glutted and housing prices
falling, you might not make
enough money on the sale of the
home to cover your first mort-
gage and a second mortgage. So
you could still have loan pay-
ments remaining after you sell
your house.
To avoid this, Williamson sug-
gests asking your lender early in
the process to accept a lower
amount than the full mortgage. If
you are negotiating and the fore-
closure process has begun,
Williamson said to ask the lender
to stop the process while you
negotiate. Get any agreement in
writing.

Bankruptcy
If your service and lender
won't provide relief, you can
delay the foreclosure by filing for
Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Beware
of jumping too quickly into bank-
ruptcy, but also beware of wait-
ing too long.
In Chapter 7, debts are forgiv-
en, but the option is available
only to people with modest
incomes. In Chapter 13, you
modify your debts, but still have
to repay money in arrears.
Your future credit score
receives a blemish, regardless.
Both Chapter 13 filings and fore-
closures stay on a person's credit
report for seven years.

A Key West chicken leisure-
ly pecks at a spot on the asphalt
as you wait in your car, which
has baked itself in the sun and
is therefore baking you.
You're parallel with the per-
fect parking space only a few
blocks from your Old Town
Key West destination. It calls
out to you like a tall glass of
ice-cold water after a mid-day
marathon up the Keys in the
sticky steam of summer.
The only problem: it's on
the other side of the road.
With the chicken still bury-
ing its beak in the street, you
lightly tap the horn and the bird
jogs to the safety of a nearby
palm tree's shade. You're free
to drive on.
You accelerate up the street
to an intersection where you
plan to execute your U-turn,
but there it is: the cursed
Conch Train blocking your
move. After a bit, it moves on
toward the Southernmost
Point, bringing dozens of
tourists with it.
Finally, you whip around to
claim your sexy parking space
but there's a problem: it isn't
there. Instead, in its place is a
large, white Dodge Caravan
with a Minnesota license plate.
Out hops a family of six
fanny-pack-clad adventurers,
ready to take on overpriced


conch fritters and key lime pie.
You sigh and continue your
epic search.
The story is common, as the
Old Town parking crunch is a
problem that will probably
exist for quite some time.
The reason for its perma-
nence has to do with the area's
lack of space for anything,
along with its height-density
requirements.
For locals who'd like to
avoid feeding the meter or pay-
ing for parking garage tickets,
Thomas, Southard and
Whitehead streets are good
areas for those who don't mind
walking a little ways.
The other obvious options:
riding a bicycle or public trans-
portation.
City Department of
Transportation Director Myra
Wittenberg says the issue isn't
that there aren't enough park-
ing spaces in Key West, it's
that people don't want to pay
for parking.
She said in the past few
months, the Old Town parking
lots' capacity hasn't come
close to peaking. And when it
comes to paying for parking in
"a big metropolitan city,"
Wittenberg notes, "it's a fact of
life."
Wittenberg said draining
finances at the gas tank and the
frustration of searching for a
spot can be avoided by taking
the bus.


Full fare in the city costs $1,
while routes to other Keys are
$2.
She recommends heavy
users invest in unlimited-use
31-day Keyswide passes for
$50 and citywide passes for
$25.
"That's really the bargain if
you're going to use transit,"
Wittenberg said.

city issuing 42,100 tickets last

The city issued 292 parking

an increase over a typical

Conchs outshoot Fins

in weekend play


Key West wins
season series
of golf teams
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

It was a spectacular day for
golf, but the golf was less than
spectacular.
Although the 4 p.m. drives
off the first tee, hit by Key West
and Marathon high school play-
ers after a group of red-faced
Muscovy ducks had ceded the
area, were long and true, things
went awry in a hurry.
And by the time the last play-
er holed out Monday evening in
the 7 o'clock shadows of the
Kev Wept gnlf Crinh's ninth


green, following a sun-struck
round witnessed by a little
parade of carts navigated by
players' parents, the Conchs had
won, 179-187.
It was the third time in four
days Key West had outshot the
Dolphins, but the one Dolphin
who couldn't be outshot was
senior Jay Hegland, who had a
3-over par 38 on the course's
unforgiving front nine to lead all
scorers.
"He didn't make a birdie -
that's not like him," Marathon
coach Dean Carrigan said. "He's
hitting it great, but he just hasn't
made a putt."
Hegland defeated Key West's

Cane swimmers host LaSalle


Coral Shores
team is still
finding its way
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Every meet gives every
swimmer a chance to set a new
personal best, Coral Shores High
School swim coach Mark Hill
said.
The aqua Hurricanes get their
next chance against LaSalle in a
4 p.m. Thursday home dual meet
at Founders Park.
"Our goal every meet is to
swim as fast as we can, regard-
less of what the [team] score is,"
Hill said. "You always want to
achieve a new personal best.".
Having worked with the
Coral Shores teams for just the
past month, Hill said, "I feel like
we have a long way to go since
I'm new to all of them. They're
still learning my coaching style,
and I'm trying to learn what they
can do."


In three early meets, Hill
learned the Upper Keys team has
sprinters capable of competing
in events of 50 to 100 yards.
"We're a lot better in the
sprints right now," he said.
"You're probably not going to
find us winning much in the 500
[distances]. Even in the 200s,
we're just all right."
The Hurricane girls have
been getting good leadership by
example from seniors like Leona
Sola (freestyle and backstroke)
and Bianca Sullivan (breast-
stroke and medley), and junior
freestyler Kelsey Anderson.
On the boys' side, Cody
Wagner has taken the lead, with
fellow captains Nate Van Lent
and Aaron Fryman.
"We've also got some boys
like Ray Vaughn who have only
been with us since the start of
school, but they're really coming
along," Hill said.
With 10 days between match-
es to prepare for this' week's
LaSalle meet, the Hurricanes
have been focusing more on


drills and distance.
"The kids are just now getting
into shape," said Hill, former
swim-team captain at- the
University of Maryland.
Coral Shores hosts Marathon
High School and Carrollton at 4
p.m. Monday, the last event
before a major meet Sept. 29 at
powerhouse Gulliver Prep.
"There are teams like
Ransom Everglades that are bet-
ter than us but from what I've
seen, I don't think they're that
much better," Hill said. "In the
next couple of years, they should
be within reach."
The main emphasis has been
on working toward peak per-
formances at the county and dis-
trict meets in October.
Hill said he is proud that the
Coral Shores swim squads
apparently rank among the best
in enthusiasm for their team-
mates.
"We usually are louder than
the other teams," he said. "The
kids cheer their teammates on,
whether the person is winning or
in last place. That keeps the
energy and momentum high."

sideline on what was a fourth-
down play.
Senior running back Sergio
Howard ran for 90 yards on 22
carries and caught two balls for
77 yards, while White was 12 of
26 for 158 yards passing with
two touchdowns and one inter-
ception. He also ran for 81 yards
and a touchdown on 11 carries.
Senior wide receiver
Fernando Taylor caught two
passes for 17 yards and a touch-
down.
Senior defensive end Josh
Frank dominated Jensen Beach,
recording 12 total tackles, two
sacks, two forced fumbles and a
fumble recovery.
Marathon outgained Jensen
Beach 343 to 206 in total yards,
but Martin said the team played
sloppy.
"Everything we could have
done wrong we did," he said.
"We must have had 100 yards
called back on penalties."
Martin also said the team's
mistakes, including a fumble,
interception and two blocked


punts, led directly to all the
Falcon points.
Unlike its previous two
games, Marathon found itself
behind 6-0 early after Jensen
Beach blocked its first punt and
scored two plays later on just its
second drive of the game.
The Dolphins later tied the
game at 6-6, but trailed 12-6 at
the half.
Marathon had its second punt
blocked early in the third quarter,
which led to a 35-yard field goal
and a 15-6 Falcon lead. Martin
said the defense did well in hold-
ing Jensen to only a field goal.


Martin said he couldn't
explain it, but the Dolphins' mis-
takes subsided and they were
able to score a touchdown with
around 4:00 left in the game.
A Dolphin defense that sur-
rendered only 33 yards rushing
to the Falcons made sure
Marathon got the ball one last
time. They made the most of
their opportunity by scoring the
game-winner with 14 seconds
remaining.
The victory moves Marathon
to 2-1 this year. The Fins host
University School Thursday at
7:30 p.m.

The Marathon High School
girls stole the show Monday in
a cross-country match against
Westwood Christian School.
The girls defeated the
Warriors 15-40, with Dolphin
runners sweeping the top seven
places and nine of 10.
Marathon seventh-grader
Naomi Valerdi came in first for
the Dolphins at 24:59. She was
followed by Emily Brandjes
(25:46), Kelsey Wonderlin
(26:53), Kasey Platt (28:01) and
Michelle Sardinia (28:03).
Valerdi ran a slower time
than in her top finish last week
against Key West, but coach
Amy Urban said that was due
mainly to a lack of competition.
"She got out in front and
held her position," Urban said.
The first Westwood runner fin-
ished more than seven minutes
behind her at 32:11.
The Marathon boys fell 30-
25 to Westwood in a tightly
contested match. The two teams
split the top 10 places, but
Warrior runners captured the
top two places to secure the
win.
Senior J.J. Cadwell was the
Dolphins' top finisher, third
overall, at 22:15. Rounding out
Marathon's top five were Matt
DeFillips (22:57), Riley Durkin
(23:06), Tommy' Dodamead
(23:24) and Thomas Bowersox


(24:43).
Urban said she was pleased
to see times improve across the
board, as several runners shaved
over two minutes off their times
since last Monday. She said
DeFillips' time of 22:57 was a
personal best by 2:30.
Dodamead was upset by his
seventh-place overall finish, but
Urban said he had every reason
to be tired. The eighth-grader
was fresh off running a triathlon
in Key West where he took first
place in his age group.
Urban said she believes


intense speed workouts, which
"they didn't enjoy so much,"
were the impetus for the
improvements in times.
"They were doing 400's with
a short rest in between, trying to
get their oxygen capacity up so
they could run faster," Urban
explained.
Still, more and more runners
have joined the team. Urban
expected as many as 14 before
the season began, but the roster
has expanded to 22 runners and
she has even had to turn some
prospective runners away.
The Marathon girls stand at
1-1, the boys at 0-2.

No. 1 player, senior Blake
Oropeza, for the third time this
season.
"We're pretty equal," Oropeza
said before Monday's match. "He
has a better short game and he
chips better. My irons are better
and. our putting is about the
same."
But on Monday, there was lit-
tle doubt who was better.
"I'm playing so bad,"
Oropeza said to assistant coach
Steve Dion as he walked to the
seventh tee.
"Relax and play," Dion told
him. "Positive thoughts."
But. a day before his 17th
birthday, Oropeza struggled
home with a 44, though with his
humor intact. "I didn't hit the ball
well, I didn't chip well and I did-
n't putt well," he said. "Other
than that, it was a fun round."
The Conchs were led by jun-
iors Casey Dion and Daniel
Margil, each of whom shot 43.


The only other Conch to break 50
was Rick Vaders, who had a 49.
Josh Gratton, playing with
two broken toes, followed
Hegland for the Dolphins with a
43 while everyone else was
above 50.
"We've been shooting a lot
lower," Carrigan said. "The Key
West course is just too narrow for
[our players.] They don't like it."
The Conchs and Dolphins,
along with Gulliver Prep and
Ransom Everglades, played four-
team matches Friday in Key West
and- Saturday at Sombrero
Country Club. Gulliver won both
matches and Key West and
Marathon were second and third,
respectively, in both.
Oropeza tied Hegland with a
39 Friday, but Hegland edged
Oropeza, 78-79, over 18 holes at
Marathon. Margil was second for
Key West on Saturday with a 83,
three better than Dion and
Marathon's Gratton, five better
than Dolphin Mike Kuck.
Key West won the season
series with the Dolphins, 3-1.

Lady Conchs earn first win


Edison High fails
to show, gives
Conchs forfeit win:
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Barefooted and exuberant at
just before 2 p.m. Saturday after-
noon, the Key West High School
volleyball team. practiced on the
shiny floor of the Bobby
Menendez Gym for a match with
Edison High of Miami.
The Conchs, buoyed with
confidence after finally winning
a game not a match but a
game the evening before
against Mater Academy, were
eager to again show that they
have begun to understand the
intricacies of their sport.
They waited and waited, but
Edison never arrived because of
what a school spokesman on
Tuesday called "bus issues."
The forfeit officially made


Key West's record 1-5, but the
Conchs know they still have yet
to win a match.
If that didn't happen Tuesday
in a match at St. Brendan that
ended too late to be included in
today's paper, it could at a two-
day invitational tournament that
will begin at 5 p.m. Friday and
bring Treasure Coast, Seacrest,
South. Fork and Okeechobee to
Key West. The Conchs will play
Seacrest at 7.
Key West entered Friday's
District 16-4A match with Mater
with an 0-4 record and had lost
12 consecutive games. That
streak reached 13 when Mater
won the opening game, 25-18.
Still, the Conchs looked
improved, digging balls, making
wise passes, serving well and
committing fewer errors. Senior
Addi Klepper played inspired
defense and Danielle Hills,
Victoria Brisson and Jessica
Bodmer provided much of the


offense.
Down 18-16 in the second
game, Key West scored seven
consecutive points behind the
serving of Stephanie Garmany to
take a 23-18 lead.
The Lions got back to within
24-23 but a serve sailed wide
and the Conchs had the victory.
Mater went on to win the next
two games, 25-15, 25-15,
although the Conchs continued
to play well, digging hard kill
attempts and forcing long rallies.
Key West coach Jessy Hulme
said a week of practicing
"sophisticated" volleyball paid
off.
"They learned how to switch
positions and put people where
they're best suited to play," she
said. "That's a lot of information
to absorb in four days, but they
worked together and looked like
a winning team."
Said junior Jacque Garcia:
"We decided not to put our heads
down. We kept each other
pumped up."


Run defense is key


CORA. SHORES / From 14

some nice athletes," Gideon
said. "There is a lot of speed
in the backfield. Our key
defensively will be to shut
down the running game."
An area of focus for the
Hurricanes in recent practices
has been to jump-start the
Coral Shores running game.
The Canes rely on a pass-
ing game, veteran quarterback
Chris Rini throwing to capable
receivers including Randell
Jackman, Ryan Biondoletti
anid Jason Soares. But the lack
of an effective ground game
hampers the air assault.
"We've spent a lot of time
working with the offensive
line," Gideon said. "Moore
Haven runs a 3-5-3 defense
that we should be able to run


against."
Several varsity starters
including Travis Sebastian
will return from injuries.
The Canes take with them
lessons from a 15-7 loss to
Class 3A Key West High
School on Sept. 7.
"In looking at the film; we
saw a few things we could
have done better," Gideon
said. "The guys were a little
disappointed that they played
a heck of a game and could
have won,'but we just lost our
grip.
"We have a lot of young
guys who had not been in that
type of situation before. Now
they've had a learning experi-
ence, and know what to do
next time around."
Coral Shores' next htsme
game is Oct. 5 against
Highlands Christian.


Boban leads Coral Shores to victory


Keynoter Staff

Led by medalist Tyler Boban,
the Coral Shores boys' cross-
country team scored a win at a
tri-meet in Miami.
Key West High School also
ran the Friday event at Tropical
Park hosted by Gulliver Prep.
Boban covered the 5-kilome-
ter course in 18 minutes, 11 sec-
onds to be first across the line.
High finishes by teammates
Max Jones (19:31), Hector
Munoz (20:16), Dylan Valdez
(20:46) and Myles Turtoni
(20:48) saw the Canes edge the
Raiders, 28-39.
Key West's boys finished
third with 44 points, led by soph-
omore Zach Harden, who ran a
personal-best 18:43. He was fol-
lowed by freshman Robert Rupp
(20:02), junior Vincent
LeNeures (21:29) and sopho-
more Mike LaBounty (21:57).
Gulliver easily won the girls'
portion with 20 points, but only
one point separated Coral Shores
and Key West in the battle for
third. The Canes took the spot,
56-57.
Sophomore Andrea
Cockerham (23:05) took fourth
overall. Other Cane scorers were
team captain Megan Gunther


(25:16), Michelle Medrano
(26:16), Stephanie Noe (26:24)
and Emily Hiller (26:54).
For the Key West girls, senior
Tyler Buckheim finished in
24:06, 48 seconds faster than
Olivia Kent. Running personal-
best times were sophomore


Paige Graham (26:05) and fresh-
man Jayci Hall (26:33).
The Conchs run at home at 8
a.m. Saturday at the Key West

Hooper had a nice run serv-

No off-season for Walker


Billfish angler
goes to extremes
for competition

With the slow tourist season
here iti the Keys, many local cap-
tains look to make ends meet by
taking odd jobs like dry walling
or painting. Others just pull in
their bootstraps and ride it out.
Then there's Capt. Scott
Walker on Duck Key who runs
the aptly named Tailwalker. No
rest for the weary, he's a billfish
tournament nut.
How's this schedule for easing
back and re-charging your batter-
ies?
Walker left the Keys the third
week of July to fish the White
Marlin Open in Ocean City, Md.,
held the first week of August.
The Sunday following, Walker
jumped on the boat to run 150
miles down to North Carolina to
fish the Pirates Cove Billfish
Tournament, a four-day event.
Immediately following that, it was
the Mid-Atlantic $500,000
Billfish Tournament in Cape May,
N.J.
How's that for being the off-
season?
The boat Walker and his crew
used for the tournament circuit is
a custom 57-foot Dean Johnson
named the Cracker, which is
owned by friend Chris Schultz, a
business owner out of Orlando.
The boat is powered with 1,000-
horse power Caterpillar engines
and cruises at 30 knots.
At the White Marlin Open -
which Walker has rarely missed
since 1978 he has seen top
mate honors twice while fishing
with his aunt and uncle, and was
captain of the year in 1992.
Walker started as a captain out
of Ocean City at age 18. He start-
ed vacationing to Duck Key in
the mid-'70s and moved down
full time in 1983 after graduating
from Old Dominion University in
Norfolk, Va. He immediately
started working as a mate on his
aunt and uncle Katie and Fred
Riffe's charter boat the Huntress
out of Duck Key.
This year's tournament
proved challenging, Walker says.
"We only caught three white
marlin and never had any multi-
ple hookups the whole week. We
never saw a blue marlin that tour-
nament." he said. "Fishinu was

American boat during ESPN's Billfish Xtreme Release League

belly-up after the first two tournaments.

releases
with eight
S. was a boat I
used to take
care of
called the
Cal Sutphin Billfisher.
It just was
not a good showing for us."
At the Pirate's Cove, Walker
admits to still trying to get the
boat "dialed in," which is slang
for making the boat attract fish.
"The Open was so slow, we
really wanted to blame not seeing
fish on the. boat, but we did not
have any spare propellers to
change out to help with the
acoustics. We tried faster, slower,
everything," he said. "We went to
Pirates Cove and stopped using
trolling valves and used just our
regular engines that week. We had
slightly better results with the
white marlin, although we were
virtually out of contention the
final fishing day and needed a
large blue marlin to get back in the
hunt. I don't write anything down
and just remembered hearing on
the VHF that every blue marlin
bite for the week seemed to be in
an area about 50 miles away."


He continues, "We were just
pulling big marlin baits and
missed a white and a sail early in
the day. A friend of mine working
the same path an hour later
hooked a blue that weighed in at
650 pounds. A boat that was right
in front of us hooked up a blue
that eventually weighed in at 770
pounds. Finally, two hours later,
we had our blue on that was
roughly 450 pounds, too small to
meet the 500-pound minimum
for bringing in to the weigh sta-
tion, but at least I felt like we
finally had the boat dialed in."
Now to the Mid-Atlantic
$500,000 the following week.
Here's how Walker remembers it:
"We started slow again with
just one release white the first
day. Bad weather moved in so we
took the next two days off and
then the field split. There was a
batch of fish about 110 miles off
of New Jersey and a batch 105
miles off of Virginia. We rolled
the dice and ran to N.J.
"The water was beautiful and
[we] managed to see about 30
fish but only managed one for the
tournament. Every turn I made
was the wrong turn. By the way,
the boats that went to Virginia,
the same area we had just fished
the week prior, ended up tearing
up the marlin. It was a very frus-
trating summer for us."
He plans to step up his tourna-
ment presence at the Turks &
Caicos in the spring.
