over unauthorized cell-phone charges

he accumulated $5,253.24 in cell-
phone charges using unautho-
rized lines.
District Comptroller William
Southcott says he believes Spoto

procured three Nextel phones
through the district in addition to
one already assigned to him.
Southcott said he believes Spoto,
his wife and their 12-year-old
daughter used the phones to make
personal calls.

"Spoto, in my opinion, com-
pletely mismanaged the Nextel
phone program," he said noting
Spoto administered the program.
Southcott said records indicate
Spoto was using unauthorized
district lines since as far back as
July 2004. None of the three lines
are now active.

Developer denies wrongdoing


Cay Clubs and affiliated com-
panies filed Wednesday in Key
West to dismiss a lawsuit
brought against them by dissatis-
fied owner-investors at the for-
mer Sombrero Resort in
And in a corporate statement
issued Friday, the Clearwater-
based company denies wrongdo-
ing or fraud in connection with
the Sombrero development.
- Cay Clubs International,
Cristal Clear Realty and
DC709JV, all owned by Cay
Clubs principals Dave Clark and
David Schwarz, filed jointly
claiming the cases by all- 23
Sombrero investors should be
brought individually.
The motion to dismiss argues
that since some buyers used dif-
ferent real estate agencies, the
complaints should be separated
as such.
The document also points to a
separation between types of
transactions appraisals and
sale of real estate and claims
appraisers acted independently
at the behest of each investor's
loan company.
Cay Clubs also adds that
other parties were left off the
original complaint that must be
added for a joint trial, including
a number of real estate agents.
But Cay Clubs is not just
seeking 23 individual trials; its
motion also denies any wrong-
doing or fraud alleged in the
Aug. 22 filing in Monroe County

Circuit Court. Cay Clubs' princi-
pals repeated that sentiment
Friday in a prepared statement.
"We are never pleased when
owners of our properties are dis-
satisfied," said Clark, chief
executive officer of Cay Clubs.
"But as the developer and opera-
tor of Sombrero Cay Club, we
have realized significant
progress in the evolution of this
Clark went on to defend his
company's business strategies.
"Our position of maintaining
the property and accelerating
operations during this turbulent
economic time has proven to be
strategically sound as occupancy
and average daily rates contin-
ues to rise," Clark said.
A lawyer for some of the
plaintiffs said splitting up the
case is nothing but a ploy "to try
to overly burden the plaintiffs."
Howard Behar, a Miami
attorney, went on to say the
defense of the case counters Cay
Clubs' marketing materials say-
ing the Marathon resort would
become world-class.
"It's unfair ... when all of
their brochures say they. would
build a world-class facility and
now they are saying on the
record they don't need to do
that," Behar said. "I think it's
very telling in terms of the over-
all misrepresentation and fraud
upon the investors."
In the original complaint, the
owners say Cay Clubs and affil-
iated companies misrepresented

what it owned, what was offered,
the company's future plans and
how much owners stood to make
by investing in the Marathon
The Sombrero buyers also
allege Cay Clubs utilized their
money as an investment, which
real estate agents are banned
from doing.
. The motion to dismiss cites
Florida law, saying the real
estate sales were all legitimate,
and that fraud claims cannot be
raised on investments in real
estate purchases.
The buyers say they were told
Sombrero Resort, then a moder-
ate-end hotel, would be upgrad-
ed to a "world-class" facility.
But they allege the only
upgrades performed on the prop-
erty were new coats of paint.
"Cay Clubs contends that
conversion of Sombrero Cay
Club has been delayed to pre-
serve cash during the slowdown
in the real estate market but will
be completed in the future," the
company's statement says.
Earlier this month, the Singh
Co. took back management con-
trol of three Marathon resorts -
not Sombrero from Cay
And Cay Clubs has warned in
regulatory filings it may be
forced into bankruptcy if it can't
refinance more than $74 million
in loans coming due.
It owes more than $10 million
in late lease payments to buyers
and missed $1 million in loan
payments this year, according to
regulatory filings.

SPOTO / From 1

According to a May 1, 2007,
letter from Southcott to Fussell,
the district first discovered a sec-
ondary line costing $66.43 per
month Spoto had activated in
November 2006. He was using
the phone almost exclusively (99
percent) to place outgoing calls to
a receptionist/secretary specialist
at the district's Key West office.
"Mr. Spoto has misappropriat-
ed public funds for personal gain
and abused his position of public
trust. Immediate action must be-
taken. Law enforcement has been
contacted regarding this,"
Southcott wrote in the letter.
Southcott said he contacted
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement April 30 but that
agency has taken no action thus
far against Spoto.
Spoto acknowledged using the
phone to call the secretary, whom
he said is a friend of more than 30
"I was going through some
marital problems and she was
helping me through them," Spoto
Southcott said while he is "not
privy to [Spoto's] personal busi-
ness, in my opinion, he wouldn't
need to call her on her personal
cell phone."
Spoto denied procuring the
other two phones in question for
personal use. He said those
phones were spares kept in his
truck and were used only by his
daughter, without permission,
after he had taken her personal
cell phone away from her.
Spoto said he travels up and
down the Keys as part of the job
and kept the spare phones in the
truck in case a worker's phone
"went down."
Southcott indicated in a July
17 letter to Fussell he believed
one of these, a $350 i880
Motorola camera phone, was
Being used as the daughter's per-
sonal .phone.

"It is apparent [one of the
phones] was used by his daugh-
ter. You witnessed this at 5:25
p.m. the afternoon of June 13,
2007, when I called this number
in your presence and she
answered. After calling several
numbers on the bill it was discov-
ered that these numbers belonged
to her friends," Southcott wrote.
Spoto says the phone was pur-
chased for a district biologist in
Key Largo. 1 !,
"Every now and agairi they
have something they're\ curious
about and they'll take pictures
and e-mail them to me. on, my
Blackberry," Spoto explained. .
Southcott also stateloi in an
Aug. 23, 2007, letter. !his dis-
agreement with Fussell's deci-
sion to charge Spoto $1,65,8.51 in
'restitution. Further investigation,
he wrote, revealed additional
charges incurred by Spoto, at dis-
trict expense.
"I explicitly stated that staff
was conducting research and this
amount was not final. I restated
,the amount on my Aug. 8, 2007,
memorandum presenting evi-
dence that changed the amount to
$5,186.62," Southcott said in the
letter. i
To date, Spoto has returned
the camera phone and paid
roughly $400 of restitution;to the
district. He said he has accepted
his punishment but maintains he
?approached Fussell and offered
cooperation as soon as he learned
of the charges.
"I received disciplinary action
for it, which I accepted, and I will
not ever have any other phones in
my truck," Spoto said. I ;
Southcott said Spoto Vas also
issued a "last-chance agreement"
by Fussell.
"If there is any other event, he
will be terminated," Soutthcott
said. He said Spoto could poten-
tially have been fired for this
offense, but that disciplinary
action is up to the discretion of
the director.
Fussell is out of town and did
not return repeated calls to his
cell phone for comment.i ,
Two weeks is the maximum
suspension allowed under'district
Spoto's cell-phone usage will
be discussed when the Florida
Keys Mosquito Control Board
meets at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at
district headquarters on College
Road in Key West as part ;of a
i special' meeting with its 'Audit
Coinfmittieei i

Nearly 1,000 deeds to track

What are deed restrictions?

DEEDS / From 1

rate prices with no further price
Affordable workforce housing
is one of the primary issues fac-
ing the Keys, and deed restric-
tions' are positioned as the best
meais of assuring properties des-
ignated affordable and bought'
under income guidelines remain
Without them, there is really
no way to avoid a buyer coming
in; purchasingg the property at a
discounted affordable rate, then
selling it for a huge profit on the
open market, experts warn.
P. Morgan Hill, a Marathon
Realtor who sits on the Marathon
Community Land Trust, said a
deed' restriction will usually
kriock between $150,000 and


requirement for personal injury
protection, or PIP, coverage.
"I don't like the way this is
happening," Saunders said
Friday. "The Legislature had a
chance to get something passed
in theregular [spring] session but
didn't. Now we're at the dead-

Legislators will be called to a
special session Oct. 3 to 12 to
discuss changes to the Florida
budget. The insurance issue
could, be added to the agenda.
The requirement that Florida
drivers carry PIP coverage ends
before then.
"Even if they decide to extend
[the requirement], I worry about
what will happen in the gap,"
Saunders said. "The only reason
a lot of people carry PIP is that
it's required. On Oct. 1, it will no
longer be required, and they
could cancel their policies."
SRegan Insurance President
Bob Regan said drivers should
be aware that "the number of
uninsured drivers looks like it's
going to go up."
., i"The only advice we can offer
is to increase your coverage [for
personal medical coverage] to
the maximum your company will
allow," Regan said i'"Tdheprob-

restrictions assigned to homes
and condos throughout the coun-

"Unless we're standing in
front of the courthouse everyday,
there's no way to be sure these
homes are not being sold at mar-
ket rates," said Key West's
affordable housing coordinator,
Paul Clayton.
Clayton estimates there are
more than 500 properties in Key
West with deed restrictions.
Unincorporated Monroe County
has another 450.
The county and municipalities
have not tracked the restrictions
very closely in the past, and some
affordable units, like the
Shipyard condos in Key West,
were sold at market rate.

Clayton and his counterpart in

keeps on spinning

In grammar school, kids used to play a game of musical chairs.
Changing mores have just about eliminated that competitive
bit of classroom mayhem, but it looks like the Monroe County
Commission remains wedded to juvenile gamesmanship.
Watching the commissioners discuss appointments to the
Tourist Development Council Wednesday, one couldn't help but
wait for the music to stop just to see who got left out.
Well, the music stopped. And they all looked like kids back in
grammar school.
Longtime TDC member and former Chairman Matt Babich
was dumped last month from the TDC by District 1 County
Commissioner Dixie Spehar.
Wednesday, she tried to explain her misunderstanding of the
TDC's residency rule as the reason why she thought Babich was
no longer eligible to serve.
District 2 County Commissioner George Neugent was indig-
nant, saying the board was given bad information about Babich
having resigned.
Turns out Babich did not resign; he was pushed off the board.
Mayor Mario Di Gennaro, who has become a lightning rod for
criticism, jumped into the middle of the fray, trying to justify
what happened.
County Attorney Suzanne Hutton was vainly attempting to
respond to Neugent's criticism but couldn't be heard over the din
from the dais where three commissioners Spehar, Di
Gennaro, Neugent were all talking at once.
A key issue in the dispute is the apparent selective enforce-
ment of TDC rules to fit other agendas.
Notably, Babich moved to Key Haven more than a year ago.
So why all of sudden did his residency become an issue?
And why the agenda addition at a special County Commission
meeting Sept. 10 to reappoint Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson-to the TDC after McPherson missed four meetings,
which under TDC rules dropped him from the board?
And why the public flogging at last week's county budget
meeting, denying budgeted raises for all TDC staff next year?
Could all this have something to do with the TDC board nixing
$2 million more from TDC capital funds to bail out the county's
pledge to scuttle the Vandenberg as an artificial reef?
Clearly the county mayor wants to send a message.
At the end of Wednesday's free-for-all discussion, not much
was accomplished other than the mayor said Babich was a good
guy;. District 3 Commissioner Sonny McCoy said he planned to
appoint Babich to the next available opening; and Hutton told
her bosses it would take an ordinance to change the residency
Whew. When will the music stop?

City, market can both win through long-term lease

The emotional and logical issue of
whether to renew the city of Key West's
lease with the Waterfront Market is not an
easy decision for any of the parties involved.
Why? Both the government and market pro-
vide a valuable service to the citizens of Key
Key West is totally a unique place and in
governing the city, the city leaders have a
responsibility to see to it they get the best
return on their assets.
The market, on the other hand, has served
the citizens for years and years, and has, in a
way, become an icon to the restaurants and
shoppers of Key West.
Should the city, regarding real estate it
owns, give a portion of the business commu-
nity (the market) a rent that is not reflective
of the ongoing waterfront rates as compared
to the rental rates of others? A subsidy, in
other words. There is the rub, the difficulty,
One answer is that the tenant should be
able to bear the market rental rate, including
consumer prize index increases, and still be
successful if they know what they are doing.
The city could easily do this by allowing a
long-term lease with renewable options and
guaranteed rent increases based upon the
CPI, as well as other normal lease stipula-
tions. A developer may well divide the space
into a number of smaller shops or maybe
turn it into a type of shopping mall, or even
build in a lot of flea market stalls. Whatever
comes out of the excellent location should be
a benefit to everyone.

The market can probably raise its prices
way up when nearby condos are finished,
sold and occupied. At that point, the market
owner, if smart, will get a fine, fine return on
his groceries and if the city is smart, it will
have negotiated a certain percentage of all
sales over a certain point in addition to the,
base square-foot rent.
Look at it like this: The market pays X
dollars per square foot and that adds up to X
amount per year. If the market grosses in
volume over X amount of sales for the:year,
then the city would get X percentage of that

Chamber shows support

Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe is
most grateful to the Greater Marathon
Chamber of Commerce for its unso-
licited donation to our grassroots
organization two years in a row. FIRM
continues its dedication to fight for
fair, equitable, and non-discriminatory
windstorm insurance rates for all resi-
dents and property owners in Monroe
This year, FIRM is focused on con-
dominium rates, which are categorized
as commercial-residential for insur-
ance purposes. The majority of
Monroe County condominium owners
are residents and their rates are not
ba-,ed solel\ as residences.
FIRM has made a positive differ-

ence in effecting lower windstorm
insurance premiums for single-family
homeowners in 2006 and 2007. We
must continue to work diligently
against the insurance industry lobby to
maintain and improve rates for all resi-
dents in the county.
Thank you to everyone who sup-
ports FIRM, but most especially to the
Greater Marathon Chamber of
FIRM is committed to lobby our
state Legislature in 2008, and forward,
to fulfill its mission, and donations are
needed to further support the cause.

Monroe County may be inviting a
dangerous return to 1930's gypsy-
camp water's-edge development

people with total loss of property

outcome of-Monroe County being

Shop owner had community vision

J would like to publicly thank a
member of our community who
did a wonderfully good.deed.
Marathon is full of generous citi-
zens. Some get noticed and some
sit quietly in the background.
I am the school nurse at Stanley
Switlik Elementary School.
Recently there was a student at our
school who desperately needed a
'pair of glasses and, like so many,
was not able to afford a new pair.
He couldn't participate in any of
the classroom activities because
his old glasses were broken
beyond repair.
A school volunteer, whose
deeds also go unsung, took the

student's damaged glasses to the
Optical Shoppe and asked if the
shop's owner, Ms. Rice, could in
any way repair them. Although
Ms. Rice was unable to repair the
glasses, the very next day she
walked into the school and handed
me a brand new pair of glasses for
the student. She was able to deter-
mine the prescription from the old

our residents. Thank you to Ms.

Ros-Lehtinen accessible to Keys

I strongly disagree with Monty
Davis' letter regarding politicians
insulating themselves. While I
have: no experience with Sen. Mel
Martinez, I have found Rep. Ileana
Ros-Lehtinen very accessible.
In fact, once a month each in
Marathon, Islamorada and Key
West, Kim Savoia, aide to Rep. -
Ros-Lehtinen, holds open office
hours. These are specifically
designed to aid constituents and
address their concerns. Prior

notice of these meetings is pub-
lished in the local papers.
I found Ms. Savoia to be immi-
nently approachable, friendly,
cooperative and knowledgeable.
Not long after our meeting, I
received a copy of a letter, written
on my behalf from Rep. Ros-
Lehtinen to the Veterans
I'm very grateful for this kind
of representation.

the income level for families to qualify

I can just imagine the howls that

and southern tobacco interests who still
carry a lot of political clout, especially in
Republican strongholds.
Buit of course, that part never came up
in the president's press conference.
Instead, the president blamed
Democrats for using the CHIP program
as a political bargaining chip, going so
far as to accuse the Dems of trying to
"score political points."
What political points, my numb brain

Of course, the day before this press
conference, Democratic candidates run-
ning for the White House grabbed head-
lines over ambitious health care plans to
address the disparity in this country
between those who can afford health
care and those who are left out.
One political pundit noted the linkage
between Sen. Hillary Clinton's launch of
her health-care initiative the day before
Bush's press conference and drew a dot-
ted line connecting the two events.
That's about where my brain went
numb and I realized this wasn't about
kids or health care at all. This was about
scoring political points.

The aggregation of land by the School Board,-the city and the Housing Authority located on Trumbo Road. It is properly zoned and it would be designed appropriately.

to build housing for people who live outside of Key West when the city doesn't have enough housing just for its own people.
As currently framed, the proposed facility would be available on a preferred basis to elders from Marathon to Key West, and to elders farther north if there was not enough

Bashinsky: Close Duval Street to motor-vehicle traffic and turn it into a mall. Allow delivery trucks in the morning only. This will increase the parking crunch else-
where. I see no solutions to the parking crunch other than to charge a heavy tax per car on residents who own cars, and a heavy visitor tax on cars entering Key West. I
oppose such taxes. Parking crunch goes with living on a popular semi-tropical island at the bottom of U.S. 1.

Clawing: W'e the drivers are not responsible for the mess \we face in our parking habits. An., space is legal. some feel. There are so many cars and so fe\. places to park
them Our tourists will take any' space that is vacant. There is at present no solution. We ha\e no spare space to help alle% late the trouble.
I offer the fIlloimg: Stock Island.
Many other cities ha'e pushed their borders outside their real linuts and turned less-valuable lands into office parks \with attached parking. Those buildings need not
adhere to the height requirements of Key \West: the could require netw rules.

McPherson: In the past, more parking permits were issued than parking exists. The city must implement and establish new requirements that take into consideration the
individuals that move in and out of the district. New initiatives and incentives to utilize the downtown parking garages should be established. Currently, new pay stations
have been placed on Duval Street and been successful during early implementation. We need to develop a modality plan that is comprehensive and enforceable, one that
lakes into consideration the full-time residents first and our visitors second. Public safety must be primary as we encourage bicycle and pedestrian traffic.

Montefalcon: Enforcement of the current parking law s needs to take place. 1 deal vi th tourists parking illegally at Simonton Center even daN. 1 think enforcing the park-
ing laws ill help to encourage ride-shanrng. We can offer a tax credit to businesses that can demonstrate ride-sharing among their employees.
Also. I believe \we need to work with our transit authority n pro hiding affordable express shuttle ser ices trom designated parking lots to the do ntow n area. This \\ ll
help generate revenue for the city, as well as save residents and tourists money on transportation e\pernses." whichh in turn \ ill generate commerce in the cmt.

Noda: Making better use of the parking garage on Caroline Street all 24 hours would help city revenue and decrease parking in Old Town. Signage should direct traffic
from beaches and upon entrance to island. Residential homes should have parking precedence.

Weekley: Eliminate parking meters and install pay stations in the middle of blocks v. here parking is presently permitted. This system of pa stations would allo\ an
nmd dual to park anyw here in the citr where there are meters. Establish a bicycle co-op ftake-a-bike. leaxe-a-bike stations located around the island i.
Residential parking s item needs to be revisited. Residents who live in a neighborhood should get first priority parking there- mechanisms should be put in place to allow
residents \ ho lie else\ here in to n but w ho shop or ha e business dow\ntio n and in these surrounding neighborhoods to Du al to park at specified times: perhaps make
residential parking effective from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.

Bashinsky: Accomplished: The City Commission seems to have gotten serious about trying to do something to stop people who obtained restricted affordable housing
from selling or renting it out at market rates. The City Commission seems to have gotten serious about trying to stay out of dangerous lawsuits, e.g., agreeing to let the
two tattoo-parlor applicants open on Duval Street.
Fumbled: The City Commission did not step in and work out a fair result with Blue Heaven, a popular restaurant that was hammered because one Bahama Village resi-
dent complained about the parking. The City Commission paid Ed Swift's company, Historic Tours of America, approximately $500,000 to ferry cruise-ship passengers into
Old Town. Cruise-ship passengers should pay their own way into Old Town.

Claing: I knov, \erN little good that has come from any actions bh the Citt Commission so far in its present term and the foregoing term.
Mostly. w hat I am ai:re o.f is their lack of agreement on the most tri\ al issues. I decided that the reason for this is because the\ don't stud\ the issues before the meet-
ines and when caught between a rock and a hard place. they almost beg that the issue be tabled for further consideration.
Some commissioners appear to nie like they are resentful ot one another. c\ en to dislike the mayor.

McPherson: We labored diligently to complete a high-quality budget plan that meets the needs of our citizenry under a new state mandate.
We have finally put together an inclusive comprehensive agenda for moving affordable housing forward. We have identified all the affordable units that exist and are now
in a position to bring in the enforcement piece that was sorely missing in the past.
On the tattoo issue, we should have handled our zoning-in-progress doctrine faster. We should have replaced our city manager in a more timely manner.

Montefalcon: Fumbles: The ciit lawsuit s ith Duck Tours Seafari. The cty-is left with a more-than $13.5 million bill. accrumin interest costing Key West citizens
$2 100 a day It appear the franchise agreement \ith Historic Touis of America is still active even though I believe it's been tound in \ tolation of anti-trust statutes and
caused the entire Duck Tours tiasco. This can leave Key West open to more lawsuits.
Accomplishments: TheN hav e finally found a nesw city manager and cit\ attorney that can \ work w ith them and brought in experts to negotiate tair city leases and keep
track of deed restrict unanimous decision to place the 09-year lease referendum for assisted living on the ballot.

Noda: The poor last-minute negotiations with the Waterfront Market (the sole healthy specialty foods grocery on the island, and the Truman Annex Master Property
Association Southard Street debate) were and will prove in the future to have been huge mistakes. Not to mention whatever happened to the Duck Tours lawsuit.

Weekley: Accomplishments: Modernrzing the operating guidelines for the historic KeN West Cemetery. Setting of fees for those \\ho falsely. report fires that will discour-
age this unnecessary\ drain on our fire protection resources. Shortcomings: Truman \Vaterfront property. tVrtuall. no progress made on implementing the master plan.
including the seeking of grants for that central park open space development. Failure to tighten up zoning ordinances that would present creeping commercialization in
our neighborhoods, as %well as weakening Historic Architecture Re\ iew Commission guidelines that have allowed more commercialization in our historic district and a
toothless code enforcement w hen iI comes to illegal vacation property rentals.

1. Residents and businesses could
save electricity and money by making several minor
changes to their lighting systems to include a) converting
from standard incandescent light bulbs to compact fluo-
rescent bulbs; b) installing motion sensors in rooms
throughout the house or business to automatically turn
lights off; and c) educate children on the importance of
turning the lights and electronics off when not in use.
Another opportunity for saving money is to manage
high-energy appliances such as air conditioning, refriger-
ation, water heating and clothes drying. This could be
accomplished by installation of timers and by adjusting
the thermostats.

2. Keys Energy Services could offer incentives to cus-
tomers who install or utilize energy-saving devices. This
could be handled by the utility offering a) rebates; b)
vouchers; c) a discount program; d) grant funding; or e)
credits to the bill.
Keys Energy could implement an energy conservation
rate structure. This would establish tiered-conservation
levels, based on various classes of service, whereby if the
customer stays within a defined energy-use level, their
rate would be lower and, as energy consumption increas-
es, the rate per kilowatt hour would increase (this has
been successful at the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority
for water conservation).

1. Fiber optics will allow wireless
v Internet for Key West. The income
from the sale of this service will pro-
vide an additional source of revenue.
Net metering along with solar power will allow the
citizens to realize a credit on their electrical bill for
unused power during the day. I am proposing the Utility
Board take solar power to the next level and sell the
products and have Keys Energy Services provide the
services required for the customers to become solar.
The increased revenue from the sale of solar products
and services will provide additional income to offset or
mitigate rate increases.

2. I support an investigative feasibility study to
explore utilizing our renewable energy, solid waste, in
Monroe County for the generation of electrical energy.
There is new technology plasma gasification that needs
investigating to allow the incineration of solid waste
instead of hauling it out of the Keys.
New technology may allow the elimination of Mount
Trashmore. That would provide Key West with about 60
more acres that could be used toward housing.
The byproduct would be electrical power to Keys

s1. Keys Energy Services customers
L 2 as a first step toward change should
call and take advantage of the in-home
energy survey or the online survey. After discussing
results with a Keys representative, the customer'should
then decide on improvements that can be done in the
household and/or the types of energy-efficient equipment
needed that fits within their budget that would help in
saving energy and money.
It is easy to neglect a necessary task of taking the time
to make smart choices when selecting appliances/equip-
ment and frequently due to expense, we are all guilty of
not keeping up with proper maintenance, especially in
relation to performance.

2. Keys Energy Service can encourage saving energy
by offering a rebate program as incentive for customers
who purchase and install Energy Star-efficient appli-
ances and/or technologies.
In addition, stocking compact fluorescent bulbs,
which use a fraction of the electricity used by a tradition-
al bulb, at Keys Energy, which could be purchased at a
discount when customers come in, may offer incentive
for changing bulbs within their households, leading to
lower electric bills and help with pollution reduction.

1. I don't know what people are
doing but I know heating water takes
a lot of energy. This can be reduced by
installing a solar hot-water heater, on-demand heater or
a timer. Setting the heater to 120 degrees also reduces
energy consumption,
Air conditioning is a huge draw and occurs at the
peak demand which is most expensive to meet. Solar
electric panels generate electricity when it is mostn'eed-

2. Keys Energy could pay for home energy efficiency
improvements and recover the cost from the savings.
Once the improvements are paid for, the customer would
benefit from lower electric use, saving money.
Revise the rate structure. Time-of-day metering
charges more during the peak when electricity is most
expensive. This rewards customers that raise the therno-
stat setting on the air conditioner when away from home
during the day.
Life-line pricing provides a tiered rate Structure,
charging the lowest rate per kilowatt for the baseline
needed to live. Higher rates would be charged for'tbh-
sumption that exceeds this baseline and a highest rate
would be charged for excessive consumption. Net-
metering allows customers generating electricity with
solar panels to sell energy to Keys Energy at or near the
retail rate.

S 1. If a customer wants to learn how
to save electricity, he or she has an
abundance of suggestions in books, magazines and on the
Web. I did a search for "save electricity" and it produced
several thousand Web sites with suggestions. Or the cus-
tomer could call Customer Service at Keys Energy (295-
1081) and request an audit.
If a customer understands the importance of conserva-
tion and thus cares about not over-using electricity, that is
the most important step. Once that sincerely exists, it can
be combined with vigilant awareness and I believe that the
rest becomes easy. The customer will then plant the shade
trees, turn off the lights, buy the energy efficient appli-
ances, install solar panels, etc.

2. I strongly advocate a higher level of teamwork
between Keys Energy and customers. I propose a Keys
Energy employee who conducts the educational ite'-\ isit
survey and audit intended to reduce consumption should
be given a proportional bonus if the customer's usage in
the subsequent year is less than the year prior to the visit.
Likewise, the customer should get a lower rate.
Also, I would advertise on television and in ihe pre"'
.the success stories of the employee-customer team to
motivate others to achieve the same goals. .

I. 1. The biggest activity that rate payers can
employ to save energy is conservation. By putting
timers on water heaters, [upgrade] insulation and weather stripping,
buying Energy Star appliances and using ceiling fans, a household
could save up to 30 percent on its electric bill.
SMost of the generation that we have on the island is called peak-
er generation and is not cost effective, but it is dependable.
Conservation also will save in reducing the need for these speaker

Nov. 6 ballot shapes up

Two referendums
would appear
if runoff occurs

With a 'Nov. 6 runoff Key
West City Commission elec-
tion nearly guaranteed due to
the large number of candidates,
voters likely will have the
opportunity to voice their opin-
ions on a proposal to change
the city charter, mandating any
land annexation be approved or
denied by voters.
The possible referendum
came as a result of a resolution
debated in the summer by the
City Commission that
would've allowed the city to
annex Wisteria Island for
potential development.
The referendum language
states that any time there's a
proposal to annex property into
the city, it must be voted on by
Key West residents.
The charter would read,
"Annexation or acquisition by
any means of any and all real

property may only be by a vote
of the electors of the city."
A group calling itself the
Wisteria Island Committee,
through days of collecting John
Hancocks outside the post
office, supermarket and other
businesses, met the require-
ment of obtaining 1,526 signa-
tures to put their proposed ref-
erendum on the ballot.
That number is based on 10
percent of the number of regis-
tered voters at the time of the
last city election, in 2005.

Supervisor Harry Sawyer veri-
fied the signatures.
Committee Chairman Bruce
Ritson sounds optimistic about
the referendum passing if it
makes the ballot.
"I expect it will carry on
that day because there is no
opposition to this idea," he

Also on the possible Nov. 6
ballot is a referendum on a pro-
posal by the Bahama Conch

struct 60 to 70 affordable hous-
ing units, trade schools, art stu-
dios and more at the Truman
The City Commission on
Tuesday OK'd the ballot ques-
tion. In the event there is no
runoff election, the referendum
will appear on the next general
election ballot.
"It's not the seven of us sit-
ting up here you have to sell
this concept to," Commissioner
Bill Verge told Land Trust
Commissioner Jose
Menendez said he isn't com-
fortable with the fact the pro-
posed lease is for 99 years, the
standard length for leases to be

think it's a long, long time."

E-mail sent
while staffer
was at work

Soon after Key West Mayor
Morgan McPherson's smiling
face popped up in the e-mail
accounts of city workers
Wednesday, a city employee
finds himself in the doghouse.
McPherson is standing for
re-election in October. The e-
mail wouldn't have stood out
from other campaign adver-
tisements if it weren't for the
city emblem in the top left
corner and'the fact that it was
sent from a city employee
while on the clock.
Beside McPherson in the
photo are his four children and
wife. His campaign slogan,
"The mayor you can trust!," is
in the top right corner. On the
left side of the graphic is a
reminder to "Vote Oct. 2nd."
Assistant Fleet Manager
Terry Burton was at work

Wednesday morning when he
sent the e-mail. Burton works
under General Services
Director David Fernandez.
Now, Burton has been
given a written warning.
"It clearly violates city e-
mail policy and code con-
duct," Fernandez said. "It was

definitely during work hours."
Florida statute states a pub-
lic employee can't participate
in campaigning during work-
ing hours on public property,
he said.
"That also violates election
law," Fernandez said, adding
that if the e-mail was sent
after 5 p.m. absent the city
seal and not from the city

computer, there wouldn't!have
been an issue. -
"I think the city manager is
taking appropriate disciplinary
action against him," City
Attorney Shawn Smith said.
"It clearly should not have
been done."
Burton was out sick Friday
and McPherson could not be
reached before press time.

Funding cuts
force layoffs
at student center

After 10 years of providing an
alternative education setting and
counseling for girls with truancy,
delinquency and classroom prob-

has closed its year-round Upper
Keys center.
Dixie Humelsine, president of
the board for PACE in the Upper
Keys, said state funding for the
program has dropped, forcing the
center to lay off its three full-time
employees. Three other employ-
ees, understanding the center's
bleak future, recently quit to take
teaching jobs at other schools.
PACE is a public program that
depends on state funding based
on the number of students.
Humelsine said a decline in
enrollment by more than half
over the past two years means
PACE can no longer sustain

Marathon hits 10% target

$70,000 cut
from the budget
in last hearing

Marathon city staff managed
to shave an extra $70,000 from
the budget for fiscal year 2007-
08, thereby achieving a millage
rate 10 percent below the roll-
back rate.
The final rate will be 1.4342,
or $1.4342 per $1,000 of
assessed taxable property value.
At that rate, the owner of a
$300,000 home in Marathon
would pay $430.26 in city taxes
for the coming year.
Marathon's millage rate is the
lowest in Monroe County out-
side of Key Colony Beach and
far exceeds a state-mandated
mark of 5 percent below roll-
back, which is the rate needed to
raise the same amount of money
next fiscal year as the current
one. The fiscal year starts Oct. 1.
Several different options
were discussed on ways to trim
enough to achieve a 10 percent

rollback, but in the end Finance
Manager Cindy Lawson said the
money was transferred from the
city's fund balance.
She and Finance Director
Peter Rosasco told the council at
Thursday's final budget meeting
that even after transferring those
funds, the city would still hold
50 percent of the coming year's
operating expenditures in

The much-debated Middle
Keys Community Land Trust
contract, which is for .$50,000
annually, will remain on the
budget as is.
Planning Director Fred Gross
said council will review terms of
the contract Oct. 9.
"We're only going to budget
$16,500 in set charges, with per-
item charges not to exceed
$40,000," Gross said, noting the
contract will be more specific
than the original.

During Wednesday's regular
County Commission meeting,
Koppel read his responses to the
spring-term report of a grand jury
that faulted county oversight of
the $31.6 million project, which
is now slated for July completion.
Koppel said "my approach is I
didn't care who was at fault. We
had a job to do, and I wanted to
just get the job done."
State Attorney Mark Kohl sent
a letter to the county commis-
sioners Aug. 28 disclosing the
grand-jury findings.
"The taxpayers of Monroe
County have a right to expect
more responsibility from their
public officials," the grand jury
wrote, adding that the county's
oversight of the construction con-
tract was "inadequate."
The county is working with
West Palm Beach-based
Morganti Group, which is pro-
viding at-risk management for
construction of the McCoy
Terminal Complex.

of rising costs.
Horton said he didn't see
Koppel's Wednesday rebuttal to
the grand-jury report and just
read the report Thursday. He
declined comment.
Tracing a complex history of
changing management and mis-
understandings between players,
Koppel explained how problems
that arose a year ago were
smoothed out.
"The project was off track, in
the beginning," he said. "It could
have involved a lawsuit and
rebidding the whole project.: We
had that choice or try and salvage
this relationship with Morganti.
We think we're making good
In what Commissioner
George Neugent called "a joift
effort of chaotic screw-ups," the
estimated $25 million for the new
terminal grew to $31.6 million
while Tom Willi shuffled around
staff to keep the project moving.
Koppel told commissioners
the $25 million was only an esti-
mate, made before plans had
even been drawn up.
As for staffing, Koppel
blamed county employee Larry
Chalmers for a lot of the early
misunderstandings between the
county and Morganti.
"A change in leadership was

TDC confusion continues

Rule change
possible for

Monroe County Commis-
sioner Dixie Spehar recommend-
ed Wednesday a change in the
rules governing the county
Tourist Development Council
following a week of turmoil over
the way TDC board members are
"People no longer live and
work in the same area," she said,
suggesting that TDC appointees
should be selected to represent
the district where they do busi-
ness. As it stands now, people are
appointed according to their resi-
S"I feel we need to change the
policy," Spehar said.
The issue came to a head
when Mayor Mario Di Gennaro
appointed Islamorada resident
Jim Rhyne to the TDC. Rhyne's
motel is in Marathon.
The appointment followed

TDC rules to the letter but riled a
number of people who feel a
business owner should represent
the region in which his or her
business lies.
"The representative should be
for the business, not the resi-
dence," agreed Commissioner
Sylvia Murphy. "You are
involved with the business com-
munity in the area where you
have that business. And the busi-
ness is what generates the dollars
for the TDC."
TDC Director Harold Wheeler
last week sent a letter to County
Attorney Suzanne Hutton com-
plaining that the Rhyne appoint-
ment left Islamorada lodgings
with no representation.
The residency, rule was
imposed on Key West hotelier
Matt Babich in July when he was
removed from the board.
Babich had represented
District 1 for seven years and
lived in that district most of that
time. However, he moved into
District 2 at least a year ago. In
July Spehar appointed Freddy
Varela to take Babich's seat.

Popham remains

is approved
Keynoter Staff

The Monroe County Com-
mission voted unanimously Wed-
nesday to reappoint Marathon
business owner Sherry Popham to
the Planning Commission.
The appointment moves
Popham from her District 4 seat
to District 2, where she will
replace Michelle Cates Deal,
whose term is expiring.
County Mayor Mario Di
Gennaro appointed Key West
attorney John Marston to the
District 4 seat.
Planning Commission
Chairman Jim Cameron encour-
aged the county commissioners
to retain Popham.
"She's our lead person on the
working-waterfront issue,"
Cameron said. "She's our expert

and we're just starting that whole
process. We need her."
The Planning Commission
plays a vital role in pulling
together a countywide plan to
preserve water-dependent busi-
nesses and public access to the
water. The commission oversees
most new development and rede-
velopment that goes on in unin-
corporated Monroe County.
Popham's appointment by
Commissioner George Neugent
was a last-minute addition to
Wednesday's meeting, and the
move likely pleased many
Middle Keys residents since the
Marston appointment threatened
to leave Marathon with no repre-
sentation on the board.:
SPopham co-owns the
Marathon Boat Yard with hus-
band Bruce Popham. She was
originally appointed to the
Planning Commission in January
2006 to replace the retiring Lynn

At Wednesday's commission
meeting, Commissioner George
Neugent pointed out that Babich
was never formally removed
from the board.
"You don't have the authority
to remove someone who sits on
the TDC," he said to Spehar. The
commission "inadvertently con-
.firmed that removal by putting
someone else on the council."
"I don't think anybody at the
commission level was contem-
plating whether he had or hadn't
resigned," Hutton responded.
Babich sent an e-mail to
Hutton last week.
"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," he wrote. "At the next
[commission] meeting, I was in
fact removed...."
Hutton told the commission
that if it wants to change the pol-
icy so appointments are made
according to a business location
rather than the appointee's resi-
dence, it would require a new

Waterfront tied to evacuation

OK transmittal
against advice

Despite warnings by staff and
advisors, the Monroe County
Commission on Wednesday
.added a last-minute addendum to
a proposed county- ordinance
aimed at preserving the working
waterfront and voted unanimous-
ly to send the ordinance to the
state Department of Community
Affairs for approval.
Since the county is designated
as an Area of Critical State
Concern, DCA must approve any
changes to the land plan that
affect growth and development in
the Keys.
The ordinance provides incen-
tives designed to encourage
landowners to maintain existing
working waterfront uses like boat
yards and fish houses.
Under the guise of hurricane
recovery, attorneys for Stock
Island waterfront property own-
ers added a provision that would
change the county's comprehen-
sive plan so public lodging would

be considered a "development
not impacting hurricane evacua-
tion times."
Attorney David Paul Horan
said emergency-management
officials support the idea of using
hotels for "first responders" -
the people who are first in line to
put the community back together
after a hurricane.
Horan said the plan for devel-
.oping the Safe Harbor waterfront
includes lodgings as well as a
boardwalk around the harbor and
that it will not threaten the exist-
ing commercial fishing and boat
repair industries already there.
"A delay means tens of mil-
lions of dollars," Horan said.
"This [development] will be a
tremendous economic engine for
Monroe County."
"Since when do landowners,
developers and their attorneys
write up things to go to the
DCA?" asked Commissioner
Sylvia Murphy. "Why does this
not have to go to the Planning
"This is an item that was not
reviewed or vetted by [the
Planning Commission] or anyone
in the- public," Planning
Commissioner Sherry Popham

said. "It shouldn't be included."
County Growth Management
Director Andrew Trivette also
opposed adding the language.
"My fear is it will dilute the
issue, which is protecting the
working waterfront," he said. "It
should be sent as a separate poli-
cy, a policy that's been well vet-
Trivette pointed out that evac-
uation and hurricane recovery are
entirely separate issues from
waterfront land use.
Several speakers urged the
commission to hold off transmit-
ting even the approved ordinance
itself, saying stakeholders need
more time to craft what could be
the last and best attempt to save
the working waterfront.
"We have great concerns
about Safe Harbor," said Mimi
Stafford, a commercial fisher-
man. "If we lose this, we don't
have a fallback zone. We won't
get a second chance."
Landowner Charlie Ranier
said his whole goal in the devel-
opment plan for Safe Harbor is to
retain commercial fishing.
"I put this whole project
together so the commercial fish-
ermen will not be left out," he
said. "We need to get this done;
we cannot wait a year."

Final city budget passes

Some unhappy
with structure
of pay raises

The Key West City Com-
mission passed the second and
final reading of the financially
tight 2007-08 budget Wednesday,
though many commissioners hes-
itated, rubbing their brows in fis-
cal woe before approving it.
Mayor Morgan McPherson
was the lone dissenting vote, say-
ing he wanted to set aside money
for higher staff raises than what
was proposed by City Manager
Jim Scholl.
"If it takes dipping into the
reserves to meet the cost of liv-
ing," he said, "then that's what I
think we should do."
The City Commission agreed
1 Wi th ie iaea ;of g1. irg lrg" "
4 a klei bai ltcogjnized h balid i

needed to be approved to meet
deadline. The new fiscal year
starts Oct. 1.
"You need to adopt the budget,"
City Attorney Shawn Smith said.
The final millage rate is
2.0354. The total budget is
$163,153,579. Of that, property
taxes account for the $38,531,345
general fund.
The spending plan meets a
legislatively mandated 3 percent
rollback in property taxes.
Rollback is the tax rate set that
raises a matching amount of rev-
enue for the coming fiscal year as
the current one.
The adopted millage means
the owner of a $500,000 home
will pay $1,017.70 in city proper-
ty taxes. With the current millage
of 2.3, that same homeowner is
paying $1,150.
Scholl worked out a flat cost-
of-living increase of 4.2 percent
to allemployees! But hisl propos-
al Wa-s mintit1i dppoitiod,; given

those flat raises included employ-
ee increases already built into
salary, like step increases.
City employees "almost
become penalized for having
steps," Commissioner Dan
Kolhage said.
Commissioner Harry Bethel
agreed, saying a cost-of-livihg
increase is meant to be "over and
above" base rate increases.
The commission decided to
pass the budget after Finance
Director Roger Wittenberg made
clear that amendments to the
budget could be made at any time
subsequent to adoption.
The commission discussed the
likelihood of saving finances
along the way as employees
leave, allowing those potential
salaries to pour back into the city
pot. Personnel account for more
than 70 percent of city expenses.
"As you guys know," Kolhage
said, "I'm not a fan of dipping
into reserves. We will have some
savings across the way."

A move to reduce the catch in
certain snapper and grouper
species could mean Florida Keys
commercial fishermen face a
new slate of catch rules.
The South Atlantic Fishery
Management Council is working
on proposals for Individual
Fishing Quotas IFQs that
would allocate each permit hold-
er a set poundage for vermilion
snapper and gag grouper.
Both species are identified as
overfished, according to federal
Federal advisers "determined
that in order to fish at the opti-
mum yield, a reduction of 61
percent is needed for vermilion
snapper," according to council
reports. "Substantial reductions
in harvest are also anticipated
for gag in order to end overfish-

One way to achieve the legal-
ly required reduction in the over-
all harvest would be to adopt an
IFQ plan.
"This is one of the biggest
issues facing the industry," said
Scott Zimmerman, executive
director of the Florida Keys
Commercial Fishermen's
"I can say that most of the
fishermen who have reached out
to me have a negative response
to IFQs," Zimmerman said. "But
there are fishermen who are in
favor of it."
The council is scheduled to
approve during its Dec. 3-7
meeting in North Carolina an
amendment to put the issue to
public hearing.
Existing permit holders will
be asked to vote on the issue in a
referendum, Zimmerman said.
"Whether or not [IFQs] will
work is still under considera-
tion," Zimmerman said, "but
some estimates say it could
reduce the number of people in
the [federal snapper-grouper

fishery] by 50 to 75 percent."
Under IFQ programs, the
annual harvest quota for a
species would be divided into
shares, which are assigned to
fishermen or to regional associa-
The shares would be based on
historical landings, Zimmerman
said. "People who have had
more landings would get larger
Zimmerman said commercial
fishermen also are concerned
that the proposals acknowledge
the limited information on how
much of the catch is taken by
recreational fishermen.
The IFQs are part of a trend
toward more limited access in
commercial fisheries.
The state's lobster-trap reduc-
tion plan also is a limited-entry
system, but based on a different
Zimmerman said commercial
fishermen in the snapper-
grouper fishery should learn
more about the proposals.

The Waterfront Market soap

and will continue to seek invest-
ment opportunities elsewhere.

Pantelis will now go through

She also said the offer from

the terms ultimately weren't right.
The city Bight Board and City
Commission say they've done all
they can for Pantelis with a short-

"But we don't want him to go."
If Pantelis does not sell the
business or sign the original 10-

City wins big rental case-

orders fines
of $40,000

Transient-rental violations
will cost an Old Town Key West
property owner more than
$40,000 in fines, according to
findings released from Special
Magistrate Jeff Overby.
In October 2006, William
and Britt Lemon, who own
property at 413 Francis St.,
were found in violation of tran-
sient-rental regulations, which
mandate property in the
Historic District, where the
Lemons' property is located,
cannot be rented out for less
than 30 days.
Overby's findings, released
Monday, conclude the pair did
not have proper licenses.
Key West's former chief
code enforcement officer, Jim
Young, was involved in a sting
operation that led to the settle-
ment and testified in court.
Young was fired in October
by then-City Manager Julio
Avael shortly after the sting
operation. He has a wrongful-
termination lawsuit pending
against the city.
Young, posing under the
alias of Pam Thomas with an
address in Margate in Broward
County, sent the Lemons a
check for $2,650, which includ-
ed the $2,000 rent, $150 clean-
ing fee and $500 deposit. The

rental period was to be Oct. 1 to
8, which was written on that
According to Young, the
Lemons typically ask for some
$6,000 for a monthly rate,
except when the department
called and ask for a weekly rate.
"It was a sham contract,"
Young said.
Code Officer Randy Pekarik
stayed at the unit for eight days
with his wife before asking
William Lemon about where to
leave his keys and how to go
about checking out.
Pekarik's wife, who was act-
ing as Pam Thomas, was told by
the defendant, upon leaving,
"other renters were arriving
soon," according to Mrs.
Pekarik's sworn testimony.
"This testimony is diametri-
cally opposed to that given by
Mr. Lemon," the finding reads.
Attorney David Paul Horan,
who's representing the Lemons
along with Joseph Spataro, said
no one else actually stayed in
the unit for the rest of that
month and that the Lemons
wouldn't have allowed it.
According to the findings,
the defendant admitted to keep-
ing "no detailed records of the
rentals, the security deposits
and the name of the vendors that
cleaned or repaired the subject
property," as well as no
receipts, cancelled checks or
records of renters and their
The defendant also admitted
to not paying sales tax for rental

periods to the Florida
Department of Revenue.
Overby found William
Lemon's testimony "to be unre-
liable and not credible."
"We will move for a rehear-
ing," Horan said. "Legally, [the
Pekariks] had signed a lease
that allows them to stay there
for an entire month."
Horan said that according to
the transient-rental ordinance,
even though the code officers
signed a lease for a nio thA the\
are not required to st~itli6ere
that entire month.
While discussing code cases
in general and not this specific
one, Overby said the cases he
sees are those in which the
defendants have alreadyi.talked
with the code department and
either refused to come into com-
pliance or denied wrongdoing.
"The city's goal has always
been compliance," Overby said.
Overby is also chief assistant
state attorney. Horan argues that
Overby was playing "prosecu-
tor" in the Lemon case.
Young said Code
Enforcement's intent when he
worked for the city was to deter
people from breaking code, not
make the city money.
He says since his firing, the
department has been lackluster
in investigating big cases like
the Lemons'.
"Since my termination, it's
very obvious that the new code
compliance is not being as
enthusiastic about enforcing the
code ordinances, especially the
transient-rental ordinances,"
Young said.

Molester gets 2 mor life terms

Keys jury takes
just one hour
to find guilt

Already facing three consec-
utive life sentences for capital
sexual battery against his step-
daughter some 30 years ago,
Celio Sergio Castro on Thursday
was convicted of two more
counts of capital sexual battery
and sentenced to two more con-
secutive life terms.
To the sobs of now-grown-up
sisters who were Castro's child
victims attending the trial, a Key
-West jury delivered the two

unanimous guilty verdicts after
deliberating about an hour.
Monroe County Circuit Court
Judge Richard Payne sentenced
Castro, 76, to the two additional
life terms on the spot. The sen-
tence was the maximum the
judge could impose.
Castro was found guilty of
sexual battery against one step-
daughter. On May 10, he was
convicted and sentenced for
three other counts of sexual bat-
tery against another stepdaugh-
ter. He was also charged with
capital sexual battery against a
third stepdaughtery'
- ^ '**"1S!.J T, 1 !1! '-

The three sisters sat close
together in the courtroom
Thursday accompanied by the 2-
year-old son of one.
In 1990, Castro, a Cuban
national, was jailed for an unre-
lated attempted sexual battery on
a young girl. When he was
released in 2002 on immigration
technicalities, his stepdaughters
came forward with their: own
charges of his sexual assaults.
According to Manny
Madruga, who prosecuted the
case for State Attorney Mark
Kohl, the sexual batteries tried
Thursday occurred between July
1976 and July 1979.

WATER WORK: Crews continue to lay a 36-inch water pipeline along U.S. 1 in Tavernier. The
$11 million project to repair a damaged section is on track to finish by the December
contract deadline or earlier, Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority spokeswoman Colleen Tagle
says. Crews working with contractor Garney Construction have altered their weekly
schedule, trying to keep all lanes open by the start of weekend traffic on Fridays.

Higgs talks move forward

But the costs
of maintenance
still an issue

The Key West City Com-
mission passed a resolution
Tuesday that will further discus-
sions with Monroe County offi-
cials about the transfer of Higgs
Beach and surrounding property,
including the Astro City chil-
dren's park and nearby dog park,
from the county to the city.
But City Commissioner Dan
Kolhage wants to know: How
will the city pay maintenance
fees? They cost into the hundreds
of thousands of dollars annually.
"I don't mean to continue to
beat. on this," he said.
Kolhage said he wants a com-
mitment to receive maintenance
money from the Tourist
Development Council but said
it's unclear whether a commit-
ment is set in stone. He, along
with Commissioner Mark Rossi,
votedagainst the resolution.
The transfer would include
Salute, a beachfront Italian
restaurant, which would help

supplement the cost of maintain-
ing the property from rent rev-
enue, officials say.
To bring the property into
compliance with the Americans
with Disabilities Act would cost
about $234,000, Kolhage said.
Under conditions proposed by the
city, the county would incur that
If that falls through, City
Manager Jim Scholl doesn't seem
too worried.
"There is federal money, or
state grant money, available to help
come into compliance," he said.
County Public Works Director
Dent Pierce and County
Administrator Tom Willi attend-
ed and nodded their heads when
city-officials suggested the coun-
ty wants to pass on the property.
Local attorney Richard
Klitenick, a proponent of "taking
back" our parks and beaches from
aggressive vagrants, presented a
"discussion draft" for an initiative
that would put restrictions on who
could enter the Astro City chil-
dren's park at the beach.
If someone were there and
over age 18 and is not accompa-
nying a child. Kli tepick said that
person should be subject to fin-

gerprinting and screening to
check for arrest warrents, an
effort aimed at primarily at keep-
ing sexual offenders away from
However, constitutional issues
seem likely with that proposal.
"You got to be careful," Scholl
said. "You cannot deny freedom
to somebody just because they
appear to be potentially bad."
SAlso Tuesday night, an ordi-
nance died that would have man-
dated 30 percent of redevelop-
ment projects be designated for
affordable housing or the fiscal
equivalent of those units be put
into the city's affordable housing
trust fund.
Community Housing Com-
mittee Chairman Omar Garcia
said he would rather the commis-
sion not pass the measure after
new softer language was added to
the ordinance by the Planning
That department misunder-
stood the committee's proposal
when it changed language to state
that if a hotel rebuilds to add
more than four units, the 30 per-
cent affordable rule would apply
only to the number of units
added, not the entire complex.
The, committee wants th5 rule
to apply to the entire complex.

Bauman running for
County Commission

The election is a year away,
but Key Largo Wastewater
Treatment District Chairman
Gary Bauman has announced
plans to run as a Republican for
Monroe County Commissioner
District 5 (Key Largo).
Democrat Sylvia Murphy now
holds that seat.
In a prepared statement,
Bauman said he's running "to

help solve several difficult
issues," first and foremost
obtaining state and federal
wastewater grants. He also
believes property taxes and
infrastructure development costs'
in the county are too high.

Rain-gauge observers
needed in the Keys

The state of Florida and
National Weather Service are
attempting to recruit one volun-

teer rain-gauge observer per
square mile statewide, including
the Keys.
Observers will enter their
backyard rain totals into a Web
site, which will then feed the
data to the Weather Service. The
data will be used to help produce
high-resolution rainfall fore-
casts, as well as to help out
water-usage planners.. '

Don't hide your head in the sand

Take control
of adjustable
rate mortgage
Keynoter Contributor -

Thousands of homeowners
across the country and in Florida
are feeling the pain of a big pay-
ment increases now that their
lower-rate adjustable rate mort-
gage loans are coming due and
their payments are increasing
It's easy to unwittingly get
caught in this trap. The extreme-
ly enticing low rate is the hook,
and the' fixed interest period"-

seems longer than it really is.
Now, the lower rate that con-
sumers were given when they
bought their home or refinanced
is adjusting steadily upward, and
the monthly mortgage payments
are also higher and growing
higher each and every month.
Many have a first and second
mortgage they took out to buy
their home with 90, 95 or 100
percent financing. They've likely
already felt the pain of a big
increase in multiple mortgage
While there are solutions to
the problem, you shouldn't wait
until the adjustable rate period

Fixed rates are very good
right now. This is the time for
homeowners to refinance out of
their adjustable rate mortgage
into a good fixed-rate loan with a
lower payment than they have
Thirty-year fixed interest
rates are better than the
adjustable indexes, so that's the
direction to take. If you have
managed your credit rating prop-
erly then you're fine; you can use
your equity, if you have equity, to
refinance into a great 30-, 40- or
even 50-year mortgage with a
lower payment.
Make sure you know when
your adjustable rate mortgage is

Clean credit is an invaluable asset

due to adjust upward and start
making plans ahead of time.
Also, take a careful look at your
loan documents and be sure you
know if you have a pre-payment
penalty period. You certainly
don't want to be surprised when
you choose to refinance and find
at the end of the process a penal-
ty is due.
If you do have a pre-payment
penalty, know when it's due to
expire. It may be a one-, two- or
three-year penalty period, so
plan ahead and consult with a
trusted mortgage professional.
A savvy broker can build clos-
ing costs into the cost of your new
loan so you'll have nothing out of
pocket except maybe the cost of a
new appraisal.
And don't forget that if you

have a first and second mort-
gage, you may be able to com-
bine them into one new loan that
will save you some of your hard-
earned money on a new mort-
gage loan.
And don't forget that it's very
important you take good care of
your credit. Having a good cred-
it score when applying for a new
loan is like having money in the
bank; it's an invaluable asset.
There are three things you
must do:
Have you mortgage profes-
sional help you manage your
credit properly so you know
what your credit scores are and
that will help you in getting a
lower fixed rate loan.
+ Find out your property value
so you know your equity position.
Make sure your property value is
high enough to include theclosing
costs on your new loan.

There are some who are not

T he time passages get
bridged Sunday when
Al Stewart comes to the
Keys to play Guy Harvey's
Island Grill as part of a
locals' appreciation night.
Island Grill General
Manager Mike Finnerty said
"we are quickly making a
name for ourselves as a pre-

in the Key West area is a big
step forward for quality music
in the Keys."
The free concert begins at

Marathon uses Statue of Liberty play for 20-yard TD run

DOLPHINS / From 34

Martin said University's tail-
back had run for 250 yards the
previous week and more than 500
through three games.
Senior linebacker Wayman
Ross had 13 total tackles and sen-
ior linebacker Chris Flingos had
nine total tackles and a sack.
Marathon turned the ball over
on downs with its first possession,
but cashed in quickly on their sec-
Howard ran once for 5 yards ,
then, on the very next play, broke
out for a 55-yard score and a 7-0
Dolphin lead with 5:21 remaining
in the first quarter.
"Once he gets out in front,
there's not many people that are
going to catch him," Martin said.
Marathon forced a Sun punt on
their next possession and wasted
no time expanding their lead:
Howard broke another long
run on a third-and-long play that
gave the Dolphins a first down at
the Sun 20. On the next play,
Marathon took a page out of the
Boise State playbook.
The Dolphins executed a
Statue of Liberty play to perfec-
tion, as White faked a pass to his
right and handed off perfectly to
Freeman, who ran it in for a score
and a 14-0 lead.
Boise State famously upset
Oklahoma on a Statue of Liberty
play in last season's Fiesta Bowl.
"We just.put it in a couple of
days ago, on Monday. We tin-
kered with the blocking and I
guess we came up with the best.

way to run it," Martin said.
Two possessions later, Howard
yet again broke a long run before
punching it in himself from 11
yards out to give the Dolphins a
21-0 lead at the half.
In a long drive to open the
third quarter, Howard scored his
third and final touchdown of the
game to make it 28-0. He, along
with White and several other
starters, watched the remainder of
the game from the sidelines as
Martin took the opportunity to
dole out soie playing time.

on Tuesday and losttwo best-of-
three District 16-4A matches to
St. Brendan, 25-14, 25-14 and
25-16, 25-20.
The Conchs fell to 1-7 with
the lone victory a forfeit. They
have lost 19 of 20 games.
"I was very disappointed,"
coach Jessy Hulme said. "St.
Brendan.was a team we should
have beaten.
"It was a weird afternoon.
There was no one there when we
started. There was no music. It
was dark and the gym had a low

ceiling. So bizarre."
Asked who played well for
the Conchs, Hulme mentioned
seniors Danielle Hills and Addie
Klepper, and junior Monica
Caceres, who had "an awesome
string of serves."
St. Brendan received major
contributions from six players as
it improved to 5-4.

Marathon High School golfer
Jay Hegland finally broke
through with a round coach Dean
Carrigan says he has been wait-
ing to see.
The senior birdied 14 and
eagled 17 en route to shooting a
three-under-par 33 over nine
holes Tuesday at the International
Links Miami-Melreese course.
The' Dolphins convincingly
defeated Doral Academy High
School, 177-207.
Junior Josh Gratton shot 46,
while both Mike Kuck and J.P.
McCabe both shot 49 to complete
the Dolphins scoring.
"It was finally the round that
came together for him. Every
time we saw him, he was right in
the middle of the fairways,"
Carrigan said of Hegland's effort.
"He was never in trouble. That's
been the key for him all year;
he'd have a couple holes where
he got in trouble."
Carrigan said Hegland told
him after the round that he did
not miss a single fairway or green
during the match.
Now, Carrigan said, Hegland

has to learn to expect to shoot a
33 every time he plays.
."His game's good enough
where he can play with the best
players around," he said. "He just
has to realize that's what he
should do more often than not."
Carrigan said the 33 could
have been even lower as well.
Hegland lipped out a 20-foot putt
on 18 and parred another par 5
after putting his first shot within
200 yards.
"It was nice because it was the
course we're playing districts
on," Carrigan said.
The team received a much-
needed day off Thursday as they
deal with injuries and fatigue
from playing four matches in five
"They've been going through

a lot and it caught up with them,"
Carrigan said.
Short-game issues, especially
putting, continued to plague the
Dolphins Tuesday. Carrigan said
he feels the 177, roughly the
team's average this season, could

we need the guys to get better and

Golfing Conchs just

miss sweep of match

Team mark of 168
good enough for
second among 4
Keynoter Contributor

Playing its best round of the
season, the Key West High
School golf team was three
strokes shy of winning a four-
team, nine-hole match Tuesday at
the International Links Miami-
Melreese course.
The Conchs shot a 168, two
strokes behind winner
Westminster Christian. Ransom
Everglades was third with a 180
and Westminster Academy of
Fort-Lauderdale was fourth with
a 188.
"It was our best team score
this season," Key West coach
Nora Laubenstein said. "Our
short game was much better -
we had some great approaches to
the green. But we had a lot of
three-putts so we need to work on

On his 17th birthday, senior
Blake Oropeza hit long and
straight off the tees to finish with
a team-best 39. Daniel Margil
had a 42 and Casey Dion and
Zack Kemp each scored 44.
Freshman Jack Lockwood,
who had struggled in recent
matches, kept the ball in the fair-
way and shot 48.
"No one shot 50 or over,"
Laubenstein said.
The strong showing could
bode well for the Conchs as the
District 24-2A meet looms in
"Westminster Christian is in
our district and probably our
main competition for the second

opening Friday
Keynoter Contributor

The reopening at 7 a.m.
Friday of the back nine at the
Key West Golf Club will mark
the end of years of renovation
at the emerald-hued public
course on Stock Island.
In honor of the occasion,
the first 150 golfers will have
a chance to win $10,000, said
Doug Carter, the club's direc-
tor of golf operations. All they
have to do is get a hole-in-one
on the 165-yard 13th.
The back nine has been
closed since early July, when
work began on installing new
soil and salt-resistant grass on
the greens. New sand has also
been put in the bunkers.
The greens on the front

nine were rebuilt last summer
in the first phase of a
$750,000 project that was
necessitated after Hurricane
Wilma ravaged the course and
induced a storm surge that
covered the course in 4 feet of
saltwater and left the-greens
"We're happy to have the
renovation done," said Carter,
who has worked on the reno-
vation with head golf pro Eric
Favier. "Now this golf course
can rival any resort course in
The new grass, called
SeaDwarf Seashore Paspalum,
has lived up to its billing.
"The front nine had a lot of
traffic this summer. With that
and the heat, the greens took a
terrible beating, but you can't
tell. I'm ecstatic the way they
have held up to the extreme
conditions here."
The course is irrigated by
rainwater and water from KW
Resort Utilities that is pumped

from -a pumping station that
was part of the renovation.
The 83-year-old, 6,500-
yard, par-70 course was
redesigned in the early 1980s
by well-known golf-course
designer Rees Jones. It was
bought about 10 years ago by
Bill and Gwen Smith of
Chicago. They hired Carter,
who began to improve the
course, which was becoming

Smug in its beauty, the
course dares to be conquered.
Hardly anyone does.
"Every hole plays different
every day because of the
change in wind," Carter said.

courses, said the average pro
