Federal fisheries- managers
have agreed to a four-month
deadline to propose plans to fur-
ther protect threatened staghom


and elkhom corals.
A decision by the National
Marine Fisheries Service on
whether to seek critical-habitat
designation for the corals must be
announced by Jan. 31 under
terms of a settlement reached in a
legal complaint filed by the
Center for Biological Diversity.
"While it seemed NMFS was
gathering some information [on
coral protection] ... we didn't see


any end in sight in terms of them
putting out a decision," said
Miyoko Sakashita, a staff attor-
ney for the center.
Staghom and elkhom corals,
among the most spectacular
branching corals on the Florida
Keys reef tract, were designated a
protected species under the
Endangered Species Act in May
2006. The corals are rare in con-
tinental U.S. waters outside the

TAX CUT / From I

But the new exemption was
meant to apply only to those who
would opt into the new system -
which calls for a maximum
$195,000 exemption on a home
with a $500,000 assessed value.
The Legislature is sure to
appeal or fix the ballot language
in the Oct. 3 special lawmaking
session concerning state budget
cuts.
The man who brought the suit,
Weston Mayor Eric Hersh, urged
the Legislature to quickly correct
the error, which stemmed from
the rushed vote and secret negoti-
ations that produced the tax-cut
package at a June lawmaking ses-
sion.
"This is a big opportunity to
make this right," Hersh said.
"They need to tell people this
eventually eliminates Save Our
Homes. The problem is, they
know it won't pass if they do
that."
Already, polls show a minori-
ty of voters favor the measure -
far short of the 60 percent thresh-
old needed to amend the
Constitution.
Gov. Charlie Crist and House
Speaker Marco Rubio of West
Miami have announced separate
efforts that together could raise
upward of $10 million to cam-
paign for the amendment.
None of the Republican lead-
ers Rubio, Crist and Senate
President Ken Pruitt would
say what they plan to do next.
Rubio saidin a written statement
the ballot summary "'accurately"
stated its purpose and vowed "to
provide tax relief one way or,
another."
Hersh wants citizens to vote
on the amendment during the
November 2008 general election
- not during the Jan. 29 primar-
ies. Fewer people are expected to
vote in January especially
Democrats.
Their national.party has said
their vote in the presidential pri-
mary won't count because the
Florida party broke the rules by
scheduling a vote so early in the
year.
Hersh is acting in his private
capacity. His attorney, Jamie
Cole, argued before Francis that
the Legislature improperly set the
date of the property-tax vote. But
Francis declined to rule on that
because he invalidated the ballot
summary language itself.


Francis also ruled against
Hersh's contention that the
Legislature overstepped its
authority in limiting the taxing
authority of local governments
through a system of tax-rate roll-
backs and caps.
That part of the two-phase tax-
cut package will yield less than
the five-year, $15.6 billion sav-
ings the Legislature projected
because various local govern-
ment boards have taken super-
majority votes to avoid steep
cuts.
Democrats joined Repub-
licans to approve that part of the
plan in June but balked at the
"super-exemptions." Democrats


worried about school cuts and
forcing people out of Save Our
Homes if they saved even a dol-
lar under the new system.
Republican leaders changed
that provision to give homeown-
ers an "irrevocable" ,option to
avail 'themselves of the super-
exemption, dropping the estimat-
ed savings to about $9 billion
through 2012. But Republicans
refused to change the ballot sum-
mary. language, even though
House Democrats noted the lan-
guage appeared misleading.

Keys.
At local hearings in the
Keys in summer 2006, federal
staff said they aimed to issue
draft proposals by January
2007. No proposals have been
released.
"We have been working on
[coral protection] steadily since
those public meetings," said
Bob Hoffman, chief of the
Endangered Species Branch for
the Fisheries Service's south-
east office.
"To do it right takes a lot
more information and it took a
while to get that information,"
Hoffman said. "Now we pretty
much have what we need."
DeeVon Quirolo, executive
director of the Reef Relief
group in Key West, welcomed
the news of the settlement but
said the federal government's
delay may have caused addi-
tional harm to the corals.
"So another year passes
with elkhorn and staghorn
corals which grow only in
Florida, the Bahamas and
Caribbean being damaged
by sewer outfalls, agricultural
runoff, heavy use and warming
sea oceans," Quirolo said.
Hoffman said a determina-
tion on whether to seek critical-
habitat rules could be issued
before Jan. 31. If the decision is
to go forward, federal officials
will return to the Keys later in
2008 for. hearings on a final
rule.


Hoffman said he believes
the federal proposals "will add
a lot of conservation benefits
for the corals."
At the Keys sessions held in
2006, local dive-industry lead-
ers including Bob Holston,
Todd Firm and Spencer Slate
questioned whether rules
would stem the effects of glob-
al warming and weather dam-
age. "Nothing they can do here
is going to solve that," Holston
said.
But closing off some reef
areas to access could harm the
local economy, they said.
Sakashita said so much
coral has already been lost to
warming waters and disease,
"the species need as much pro-
tection as they can get from all
threats. That could include pol-
lution discharges or boating
and fishing activities that are
harmful to the corals."
Existing laws prohibit coral
harvesting and damage. Boat
anchoring is limited in reef
preservation areas enacted as
part of the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary.
Sakashita said many biolo-
gists believe global warming
makes the corals more suscep-
tible to disease and increased
ocean acidification a possi-
ble result of increased carbon-
dioxide levels in the atmos-
phere.
The settlement also covers
the small-toothed sawfish, a
threatened fish species native to
South Florida, and a Pacific
sturgeon.


Weather causes

A weather-related electri-
cal fault withinn the Florida

Sewer plans up for talks


I SAUDY EPEBR2T I


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Wastewater issues and a zon-
ing ordinance designed to boost
affordable housing go before the
Islamorada Village Council at its
regular Thursday meeting.
Officials of the Key Largo
Wastewater Treatment District are
scheduled to appear before the
council to discuss a proposal to
share sewage-treatment facilities.
Islamorada has been develop-
ing a plan to install sewers that
carry sewage and wastewater to a
handful of localized treatment
sites through the village's four
islands. Only one treatment cen-
ter in Islamorada, on North
Plantation Key, has been con-
structed so far.
Councilman Chris Sante has
proposed saving money on land


and construction costs by build-
ing a connection line to Key
Largo's existing treatment plant.
The plan would require payments
to the Key Largo district to
expand its facilities to handle
Islamorada's effluent.
Critics of the plan say it would
leave Islamorada vulnerable to
financial demands from the Key
Largo treatment district. It also
entails pumping sewage on lines
across waterways, a practice seen
as a potential threat to Keys
waters if a pipeline breaks.
The council also is scheduled
to hold its second hearing on the
inclusionary-zoning ordinance,
which could require businesses to
build workforce housing or pay
financial mitigation.
A resolution "encouraging"
the posting of alcohol-warning


signs in bars and. liquor stores
will also heard. The signs would
"warn about the dangers to
unborn children of women who
drink alcohol."
Council members also may
select an architect for a planned
fire station on Plantation Key,
and hear proposals to make
Islamorada more environmental-
ly friendly.
Vice Mayor. Cathi Hill has
asked for time to discuss Village
Manager Gary Word's contract.
In closed executive session,
council members will meet with
attorneys to discuss a possible
settlement of a lawsuit filed by
owners of Seabreeze Mobile
Home Park and hear updates on
cases involving Paul Bates'
Coconut Cove Resort.
The 5:30 p.m. Thursday meet-
ing takes place at the fire station
near mile marker 81.8.


DCA still has questions


MANOR / From 1

felt more comfortable using a
motel conversion rate for the prop-
erty. That rate, 85 percent, would
allow for construction of 57
affordable units on the property.
Gross said 67 would be
preferable given the amount of
money the Monroe County
School Board invested in the
property, but it may have to com-
promise with DCA.
"They made a bad deal and
they believed in the wrong peo-
ple," Gross said of the Manor
purchase. "They have to realize
they bought this property and
they're going to have to have
some of that cost absorbed.
There's no way it won't cost
them something."
Gross said he envisions the
four-acre-plus property as a place
where working people in the
Keys could start a farnily and
have the opportunity to own a
piece of property.
"We can make it [so] that peo-
ple have to earn 70 percent of
their income here," Gross said,
adding the homes would be two
to three bedrooms and sell for
approximately $225,000 to
$290,000.
Another stumbling block with
DCA has been the issue of afford-
able housing building-permit
allocations and hurricane evacua-


tion times. But Gross maintains
that if the future renters or home-
owners at the site were subject to
evacuation 72 hours prior to a
named storm, allocations would
not be necessary.
The School Board has been
having problems with Marathon
Manor since it voted Aug.18,
2005, to purchase the property
for no more than $7.4 million.
Cay Clubs Resorts and
Marinas agreed in 2006 to pur-
chase the property for the same
amount of money, with part of
the deal calling for the company
to donate a portion of the land


back to the school for parking
and/or athletic fields. It backed
out of the deal April 27, 2007, cit-
ing a lack of financing.
CayClubs' plan, which Gross
said was unrealistic, was to.
obtain 90 market-rate units in the
deal and give 65 back to be deed-
ed in perpetuity for workforce
housing.
Gross -said the plan the city
proposes is similar, but will not
transfer any units off the proper-
ty. He said negotiations are
expected to continue in the com-
ing days.

City steps up efforts
to cut burglaries

The Key West Police
Department is tracking several
reports of burglaries the past two
months in the Casa Marina area
of the island and has launched a
multi-disciplinary approach to
find the suspects cases and pre-
vent future break-ins.
Part of that initiative includes
disseminating information to res-
idents in target neighborhoods.
Officers will be out on foot
throughout the week going door
to door to alert residents to the


burglaries and offer tips on how
they can keep from becoming the
next victim.
In addition, the department
has increased patrols in several
areas to flood the neighborhoods
with a police presence, and acti-
vated its. Special Operations
Tactical Unit and bicycle patrol
units in special burglary details.
Residents should lock their
doors and windows when they
aren't home or are asleep, and
keep their properties well-lighted
to deter would-be burglars.
The department is also offering
free property security assessments.
To schedule one, call 809-1013.

Transfer ordinance up today


It's designed
to protect
trailer parks
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


There are two months left
on a moratorium on redevel-
oping mobile-home parks, so
the pressure is on at today's
meeting of the Monroe County
Planning Commission to try to
get something more permanent
in place.
On tap is a proposed ordi-
nance that would provide
property owners an incentive
to retain existing affordable
housing.
"Initially, no one was trying
to save mobile homes,"
Planning Commissioner
Sherry Popham said. "That
represents our repository of
our workforce housing. The
mechanism is supposed to be
one which preserves that last
bastion of affordable housing
while we figure out the rest of
the problem."
The proposed ordinance


would allow property owners
to transfer market-rate build-
ing rights from the parks to
other sites as long as the park
is designated an affordable
housing site.
"This would allow them to
use [building permit] alloca-
tions in other locations, with
the idea being that the county
would step up and provide
affordable housing in* those
parks," Commission Chairman
Jim Cameron said.
The county's Development
Review Committee approved a
version of the ordinance in
August, pulling'together sug-
gestions made by the county's
Workforce Housing Task
Force.
The market-rate building
permits would go to locations
to be used as private develop-
ment, Cameron said.
The County .Commission
enacted a freeze on redevelop-
ment of mobile-home parks in
July, making it retroactive to
May, in response to pleas from
the community to save what
could be the last of the truly


affordable housing in the
Keys.
Popham said she would like
to see the transfers limited so
"receiver sites" are in the
same area of the Keys as are
the parks they come from.
"I don't want to see those
sub-areas go away," she said.
Cameron said he doesn't
like the idea of putting restric-
tions into an incentive pro-
gram.
"My feeling is if we're
going to create an incentive
program, we don't want to put
restrictions on it," he said,
pointing out that the proposed
ordinance would require each
transfer be approved individu-
ally through a development
agreement with the County
Commission.
"If it's a bad deal,"
Cameron said, "it's up to the
[County Commission] to deny
it. They can always stop it."
"The other issue is the.
whole notion of being able to
transfer off the rights is predi-
cated'on there being a market-
based value on each- of the
building rights," Popham said.
"There are logistical issues


SKy W t s 0 G S


that need to be worked out."
"The key to this whole
thing is also whether we have
the affordable [permit] alloca-
tions," Cameron said. "At
present, every one we have is

A routine traffic stop to

Erick Vazquez, 34, is
charged with 14 counts each

criminal use of personal infor-

Police spokeswoman
Christie Phillips said Officer
Matt Klosowski stopped
Vazquez Saturday at 2 a.m.
when he noticed Vazquez's
boat trailer had expired tags.
Klosowski said he asked
Vazquez where he was going,
and the suspect said he was
headed to the Marquesas to go
fishing. He had four passen-
gers with him and, Klosowski
noted, an excessive amount of
snack food in the back of his
Chevy Tahoe.
A registration check found
that the Tahoe, the boat a
32-foot speedboat and its
trailer are all registered to dif-
ferent people, none of whom
were in the Tahoe.
Backup Officer Brian Leahy
searched the boat and found
several bottles of Gatorade and
water, cases of Vienna
sausages, bread and more
snacks, Phillips said.
The speedboat was also
repainted with a flat white
paint known to be used to
reduce reflectivity in efforts to
evade law enforcement while
conducting smuggling opera-
tions.
Klosowski contacted U.S.
Customs and Border Patrol,
which later found Vazquez's
name in national crime com-
puters because he reportedly
has a history of drug smug-
gling and title forging. He
added that the boat originally
registered to that trailer had
been seized for smuggling
illegal aliens.
Officers searched the Tahoe
and discovered a fake driver's
license with Vazquez's picture
on it and 14 counterfeit credit
cards, Phillips said.
His four passengers were
interviewed and fingerprinted
before being released.

Chicken Store closing doors


Hoped-for move
to Southard
falls apart
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Key West chickens will lose
their haven within the next sev-
eral weeks, as the Key West
Chicken Store is closing its
doors.
"Our landlord gave us until
Oct. 31 to be out," owner Katha
Sheehan said, "but his construc-

the comers of our building, so I
am going to take the leap and
move out while it's slow."

en tchotchkes, but acts as a
halfway house for injured and
orphaned birds on their way to
adoptive homes.
Sheehan started out by run-
ning Rooster Rescue in which


she single handedly helped relo-
cate birds and deliver injured
birds to safekeeping.
In March, Sheehan lined up
new digs on Southard Street, but
the cost of retrofitting the place
for handicapped access is just
too high, she said.
So while she's still looking
for a possible storefront,
Sheehan is prepared to continue
her rescue efforts out of her
home. And she has an online
storefront at www.thechicken-
store.com.
Sheehan's husband Roy
Stone has 50 acres on Rockland
Key.
"It's such a shame we can't
move to Roy's property on
Rockland Key," she said. "The
county can build a sewer plant
next to'it, but it is too environ-
mentally sensitive to support a
little chicken ranch."
She said the parcel is desig-
nated in the county's most pro-


tcted wetland status.
"It's the property where the
billboards are," as Sheehan
describes it, "sandwiched
between the triple X store and
the Navy property."
She said she's asked County
Commissioner Sonny McCoy's
help in exploring the possibility
of using that parcel as a retire-
ment home for unwanted Key
West chickens.
"He told me to put together a
pressure group with a lot of vot-
ers," Sheehan said. "He told me
that was the only way to get
things changed.
In the meantime, she said she
hates to lose the old location.
But the property's owner has
decided to remodel the two side-
by-side shotgun-style houses:
into residential rentals.
"He was once an unencum-
bered landlord," she said. "Now
he's like everyone else with a
mortgage to pay and higher
taxes."

Ky 'Opinion


Properly skeptical, judge

invalidates amendment

"What they passed was nonsense."
-Weston Mayor Eric Hersh

With a few pointed words, a small-town mayor from Broward
County summed up the Florida Legislature's headlong rush to
undo Save Our Homes property-tax relief.
A Leon County Circuit Court judge on Monday, ruling in a
lawsuit brought by Hersh, invalidated the ballot question on the
much-ballyhooed Jan. 29 constitutional amendment that law-
makers promised would cure tax inequity in the Sunshine State.
The judge said the ballot summary was plain wrong, calling it.
"misleading" and pointing out that voters were not clearly
warned the amendment could eliminate constitutional protec-
tions afforded by the 1992 Save Our Homes constitutional
amendment, which caps increases in property assessments at 3
percent annually.
This puts the ball back in play with the Legislature, which
meets next week to try to figure out how to cut $1 billion from
state spending as a result of the economic downturn that has
impacted sales tax revenues.
What irony. Back in the spring, Florida lawmakers vowed to
deliver big-ticket tax cuts.
House Speaker Marco Rubio championed a rollback of local
taxes to levels last seen seven years ago. He pushed for a trade-
off that would instead increase state sales taxes from 6 percent
to 8.5 percent.
Had his plan survived withering fire from opponents on both
sides of the aisle, that would have given the Sunshine State the
highest sales tax rate in the nation.
Republicans who control both the House and Senate did push
through an alternate plan that forced most local taxing authori-
ties to reduce 2008 property taxes by 3 to 7 percent.
And they brokered a deal to ask voters to end Save Our Homes
in exchange for doubling the homestead exemption statewide
from $25,000 to $50,000.
Back in June we warned about the unintended consequences
of this tradeoff, saying: "The public ought to be a lot more skep-
tical about the plans now being floated."
Here in the Keys, nearly 60 percent of the total residential tax
base is non-homesteaded, so the $50,000 does little or nothing to
fix the unfair tax burden that now hits commercial property
owners, small businesses and landlords.
It took a lawsuit filed by a Broward County mayor and a
judge's intervention this week to finally show the real flaws in
this Legislature's shoot-first-then-aim approach to tax reform.
Who knows what mischief these lawmakers might cook up
next week as they contemplate the judge's ruling, which knocks
the property tax amendment off the ballot at least for now.

County officials doth protest too much


EDITOR:
On Wednesday, Monroe County government
sank to a new low.
The citizens and county staff who attended the
County Commission meeting were given a display
reminiscent, for those of us acquainted with histo-
ry, of the one-sided trials carried out in Germany
after the Nazi takeover in the 1930s.
In what appeared to be a pre-emptive strike
aimed at the grand jury report concerning the Key
West International Airport project, the mayor and
county administrator engaged in a dialogue that


exonerated them of any wrongdoing. David
Koppel, the county engineer, continued the cha-
rade by laying blame for any problems associated
with the airport at the feet of individuals who for
mysterious reasons had a problem with the project.
So just to be clear in case the public gets the
wrong idea from the grand jury report, the county
administrator, the mayor and county engineer have
all worked diligently to fix the problems someone
else caused.

No procedure, no bill makes for happy patient


EDITOR:
I am a U.S. Marine Corps Veteran with bad
back pain. My bride Ethie made an appointment
at Keys Spinal Decompression Center in Gulfside
Village in Marathon for Sept. 12 at 11 a.m.
I arrived at 10:30 a.m., filled out the forms,
met the doctor's wife and another lovely girl, and
at 11 a.m. I met Dr. Mark Felts.
We talked about my back problems and then
he took X-rays. Looking at the X-rays, he told


me there was nothing he could do for me.
We thanked him and went to the counter. The
lovely girls said there was no charge because he
could not help me.
I could not believe this was happening in
Marathon. So anyone who has back pain, please
give Dr. Felts a call. fIe's a great doctor in our
beautiful Florida Keys.

Cay Clubs supports Keys youths


EDITOR:
This thank you goes out to Cay Clubs for its
recent generosity in allowing the Marathon High

Day of Prayer was special
EDITOR:
Even though you gave no coverage for the
beautiful World Day of Prayer night at the
Marathon Community Park amphitheater and
missed the very importance of it for our communi-
ty, we were richly blessed with people from our
community.
Prayers were given and beautiful music was
provided to all by Michael J, Rick Starr from
Miami and some of our local children and teens.
We appreciate Winn-Dixie, Publix and Home
Depot, who gave water and cookies.
We at Unity of Marathon appreciate the com-
munity for its support. You missed a special
blessed evening.

Bridge over troubled waters
EDITOR:
Troubled bridge over Boot Key Waters
Is crying out for your quarters
Now that he is old and gray
No one wants to help him pay
Lock him up or lock him down
His gears will rust into the sound
The bridge that carried goods and trash,
It's final sound will be the crash.

Ignoring the bad news

I won't make it go away


Se .. .. : - .. ..




The Marathon staff of the county building and planning departments
go out of their way to help contractors, the letter writer says.

Monroe County customer service
is better than ever before


EDITOR:
I have been a resident of the
Keys since the late '60s and started
my construction business in the late
'80s. Duringmy years in business, I
have been working with the Monroe
County building and planning
departments on a regular basis.
In all these years I have never
seen a process run as efficiently and
smoothly as it does today.
In the past, I have had projects
buried in the Planning Department
for years; now you can expect a
response in a reasonable amount of
time. The staff in Marathon is
knowledgeable, professional and a
pleasure to work with.
Another great service that is now
in place is online access to many
departments, including access to
permits and inspections. This saves
time for my staff as well as the
county staff, allowing us all to work
together more effectively.
Recently, I have heard a lot of
negative publicity regarding the
county and some of its staff mem-
bers.
In light of that, I would like to
take a moment to express a positive
opinion and thank the Monroe
County building and planning


department staffs, the directors and
the county administrator for their
professionalism, hard work and ded-
ication to the residents of this coun-

The gentleman walked into our
Marathon office and refused to give his
name. He was more than upset.
He took issue with our Sept. 19 edition,
which led with a story titled "GAO: Keys
warming." It was an Associated Press
report about how the Bush administration
isn't taking action to combat climate
change.
The gentleman, who declined to give his
name, angrily paced in our lobby and
tossed about words such as "liberal,"
"Bush whacker," "liberal" and, oh, "liber-
al."
He railed about putting left-wing opin-
ions in his community paper, refusing to
acknowledge that the news story was just
that, a news story and not an
opinion piece.
He also ignored the fact that
the article was based on a .
report from the Government
Accountability Office, the non- '
partisan investigative body of
Congress. I assume that reader S
knows the GAO, established in
1921 as the General
Accounting Office, spent a
considerable amount of time .,
investigating then-President. .
Clinton's administration, too.
The reader mentioned some- Larry
thing about wanting to see Keynot
local news in his local newspa-
per, and that the liberal Bush
whacking should be left to the Miami
Herald.
With all due to respect to that reader
and others who questioned why we would
run such a story, there's a simple answer:
it is a local and global story.
Not running it would be irresponsible
and sticking our heads in the sand -
while we still have sand, before it's cov-
ered by rising oceans because our govern-
ment and others refuse to acknowledge
that climate change is real, and a real
problem.
The GAO report cites coral bleaching
from rising temperatures that could harm
the Keys' fishing and tourist industries.
Even before the report came out, there
was plenty of science to back that up -
and it's not only a problem in the Keys.
It's taking place in the Pacific, the
Caribbean and other places.
And then there are these islands them-
selves, scarcely above sea level. So even
minor changes in sea-level could be dev-
astating.
The GAO report pointed out only three
other U.S. areas as examples where the
government's failure on climate change
could have wide-ranging consequences:
Montana's Glacier National Park,
Alaska's Chugach National Forest and


grasslands and shrub lands in northwest-
ern Arizona.
I assume the local newspapers in those
places ran the story.


Speaking of stories, one that's still
incomplete is why Florida Keys Mosquito
Control District Director Ed Fussell
decided that his No. 2, district
Superintendent Mike Spoto, should be let
off the hook for what the district comp-
troller says is misappropriating public
money.
We all know the bubba system is
entrenched in the Keys, but Fussell's
refusal to have Spoto pony up
and his refusal to even dis-
cuss the matter should have
the Mosquito Control Board
asking some hard questions
when it meets at 5:3.0 today at
its Key West office for a meet-
"-. ing of its Audit Committee.
The meeting's at 5224 College
Road, Stock Island.
.' Saturday's Keynoter carried
S the story: Spoto, in charge of
the district's Nextel phone pro-
gram, was using extra cell
Kahn phones for his personal use to
er Editor the tune of $5,186.62 in unau-
thorized charges at least
that's how much we know
about. -
And this is not coming from the "liber-
al" newspaper. It comes from district
Comptroller Bill Southcott, the agency's
chief finance person. He found that Spoto
obtained the phones for his wife and
daughter, plus an extra one for himself.
Fussell decided Spoto should pay back
only $1,658.51. How he came to that
number, no one knows. But Spoto hasn't
even paid back that amount. He's given
up a camera phone and around $400.
In an Aug. 23 letter to Fussell, Southcott
wrote, "While I understand your desire to
end the controversy surrounding Mr.
Spoto's Nextel phone management, I
respectfully disagree with the dollar
amount of restitution to the district." He
added that "the public would have been
better served by a professional investiga-
tion" into Spoto's cell-phone use.
In an earlier letter, dated May 1,
Southcott wrote, "Mr. Spoto has misap-
propriated public funds for personal gain
and abused his position of trust."
Perhaps when he's questioned about this
tonight, Fussell can explain it away by
just repeating what he said Sept. 17 at the
district's final budget hearing:
"I'll tell you what that is, it's just damn
good management."

courses.


District 2
German: The West Isle Apartments have been sold to a developer. There are 192 units. If this housing is lost, it will have a devastating impact on Key West.
In my talks with the owners of the Stadium Mobile Home Park and Apartments, while they do not currently have plans to sell, they do not rule out the possibility. Now
is the time to work with the owners and find a way to keep the Stadium units affordable.
The city marina is home to many liveaboards. The city could probably make more money by renting the slips as transients but to do so would be very shortsighted.

Rossi: Poinciana Plaza. School Board West property next to the Coast Guard ,station and ne\t to Senior Citizens Plaza. Also, renovate existing properties. i.e., Porter Place.
Fort Village.

District 4
Gibson: Poinciana Housing. This property could be. reconfigured to increase density and add more units to the site.
The School Board. This property is currently ready to accept development. Agreements are in place with the city, School Board and the Navy.
Truman Waterfront. The Bahama Conch Community Land Trust is putting forth a referendum to lease this property from the city. I agree with this site for workforce
housing.

Klitenick: Workforce housing i \ ital to the future ol Ke% WVest hut it \. ill require sacrifice and effort to achieve. Real solutions v Ill involve the support of business, go% -
ernment and iimportantlv. residential neighborhoods.
Here are areas % here we could boost affordable housing in Ke\ West: \inn Dixie and Sears To\,n neighborhoods. including ne\ second-floor housing in existing com-
mercial buildings; mixed-use upper-floor housing in commercial areas of do%' nto\ n; and limited construction on the Truman Waterfront w without sacrificing green space.
In each of these areas \ce need to re isit densitNinmtensity codes and v\e need to bring existing "unrecognized" units into safe. practical compliance.

Maurer: At Trumbo Point (School Board and Coast Guard property). I understand that upwards of 100 units are in pre-construction stage.
The Poinciana complex has considerable vacant land on which there could be construction without eliminating too much green space.
The original Truman Waterfront plans envisioned 84 units of affordable housing (not units for "fragile" elderly wealthy persons). Any additional plans must include off-
site parcels like Ed Swift's property at the old drive-in theater on Stock Island.







District 2
German: The Truman Waterfront was an economic conveyance. With that conveyance comes strict guidelines on how the property is to be used. Specifically, I am in favor
of the marina, with future plans for a ferry terminal. I also like the idea of a park with plenty of green space. Third, I agree with the part of the master plan that provides a
gateway to Bahama Village, providing an extension of the commercial and the residential fabric of that neighborhood, along with the assisted care facility, which is shown
in the master plan that was approved years ago.

Rossi: De elopment ol the east qua\ all as an economic boost to the i irs. Development of a floating bridge from the Outer Mole Pier to connect to the east qual all.
Construction of a permanent bndge acro- Admiral's Cut. This \ ill allo\\ foot traffic to fltow from Truman Annex to NlallorN Square. Finish the soccer field and plant more
trees at the Truman Waterfront.

District 4
Gibson: Affordable housing, for obvious reasons. Open and accessible green space for everyone to use. And small port facilities to handle incoming ships.

Klitenick: The Truman Waterfront has e\naordnar) potennal that \\e cannot afford to squander. Lel's build on \% hat makes Ke\ West paradise ith this opportunrt.
The Truman Waterfront \ ith its proximity to the after r is an ideal location for green space lor families and children. Recreational amenities including ball fields and an
amphitheater should co\er much of the properly.
An extension of the harbor talk \ ith shops and resiauiants would not oinl fulfill the economic redevelopment mandate of the property transfer. it iould also be ;n attrac-
tion tor residents and i\ suitors.
Limited worklorce housing \ would also help meet the economic redevelopment requirements a\s ell as ease aitordable housing problems.

Maurer: My choices are driven by the statutorily mandated base reuse plan adopted by the city in 1999 with accompanying-land development regulations approved by the
state, etc., all as set forth in the city's economic development application.
I want to see the 500,000 square feet of recreation/harborwalk green space as promised; the 141,000 square feet of retail space aimed at providing high-quality employ-
ment for Bahama Village displaced persons; and the 157,000 square feet of maritime services space designed to provide jobs and enhance tourism.

District 2
German: The first area I believe we could improve upon would be our public transportation system. It seems that if there was ever a place where bus routes could work, it
would be on an island.
Secondly, we can double.parking capacity by building one-story parking garages over the current parking lots on Caroline and Simonton streets with minimal visual impact.
A third area that may be worth exploring would be allowing off-street parking throughout Old Town via curb cuts. This would allow residents to use the area in.front of their
homes for parking, where none currently exists.

Rossi: Tear down City Hall on Angela Street and build a four-story parking garage. Make it compatible w ith the neighborhood.
New parking pat stations that accept debit and credit cards.

District 4
Gibson: There is some discrepancy about parking: The park and ride lot is down 30 percent and Mallory Square parking is down 25 percent, so pay parking is available should
someone take the effort to use them.
There should be strict enforcement by boot to cars that are not authorized to park in residential parking. The city needs to promote the park and ride citywide. City Hall should
be moved out of Old Town and a parking garage built.

Klitenick: Do-ntown businesses need to step up to the plate to help manage the parking mess. Business and neighborhood associations can fund shuttle buses to bring people
from parking facilities, shopping centers and. hotels to the downtown area.
Municipal government and business collaborations around the country have de% eloped creative solutions for shifting car traffic to multi-modal transportation like bic cle pro-
grams, carpooling and public transit. Because of our scale. Ke\ West could be an excellent protor pe for such programs.
Tear do\ n the Angela Street CmI Hall and build a multi-stors parking facility.

Maurer: I'd support the construction of a two- or three-story garage at Caroline Street (Waterfront Market) as suggested by candidate Todd German. I'd support construction
of a new multi-story city hall/parking garage off Angela Street where city offices are now located; and I'd support non-resident parking bans on Duval, Whitehead and Simonton
streets if we inaugurated more inclusive trolley-train transportation (perhaps city-owned) up and down Duval with frequent stops the length of the street.




District 2
German: While disaster brings out the worst in some people, in Key West Hurricane Wilma brought out the best and our City Commission deserves credit for helping in
that recovery.
The appointment of a workforce housing coordinator and his push to inventory the available affordable housing in Key West was a success.
As to fumbles, affordable housing has to lead the way. The previously mentioned housing coordinator is a good start but we need to get much more accomplished.
Another area where the commission could improve would be public confidence. Questions regarding code enforcement and Sunshine Law violations erode the public's
view of their elected officials.

Rossi: Accomplishments: Hiring a new city manager. city attorney and cit) planner; the new soccer fields at the Truman Waterfront for the kids; and new\ fire trucks.
Fumbles: The tattoo ordinance should have been approved ctit ide.

District 4
Gibson: Accomplishments: Hiring Jim Scholl as city manager and Shawn Smith as city attorney. These gentlemen will bring accountability and legal stability to the city.
Failures: Passing an exclusive tattoo ordinance and closing the city dump. The downtown district did not need tattoo shops; we have been fine for 40 years without one
and now we have created exclusivity to two individuals. We spent too much money to purchase land and we will now have to build a new plant. I believe we could have
redesigned our own property on Stock Island far less expensively.

Klitenick: Cii\ commissioners ha e done a credible iob running Key West, but there's plenty of room for improvement T- o things the commission did right: .
Cleaning house and hiring a ne\\ city manager and citl attorney and building a inew skate park on Flagler programs and resources for families are sorely lacking in
Key West.
What else is lacking in Key West's leadership is vision and direction. The commission has forgotten what matters most to Key West residents, and that's quality of life.
Tourism is important, but we won't have tourists without the qualities that make Key West a great place to live.

Maurer: The commission has succeeded in keeping millage/property taxes at, near or below rollback. This benefits homeowners although it's a fiction for businesses who
are caught by 10 or 20 percent appraisal increases. The commission has striven to give cost-of-living wage increases to its employees, although like the county, it has gone
overboard on managerial/executive compensation.
I note failure to even acknowledge let alone repeal tax-increment financing benefits for limited parts of the city to the tune of $1.5 million annually, and failure to final-
ly, once and for all, resolve the Truman Annex Master Property Owners Association/Southard Street access issue.

Johnston: My first priority would be to stem the loss of existing community housing by working to extend the duration of the deeded affordable housing units and deter
the conversion of full-time residences to transient rental vacation homes or market rate homes. An example is the potential conversion of the West Isle Apartments current-
ly providing nearly 200 units of deed-restricted affordable community hotlsing into condos.
Poinciana Housing complex, which is not at maximum density and has existing space to add additional housing.
Adding community housing over existing one-story commercial structures similar to those at Habana Plaza and other strip centers along Flagler Avenue.

Mancini: Sitsbee. Flenung Ke tif \,e get it). Stock Island. Nlan\ sites if annexed to the cirN. The dump appears to be questionable and may be too expensl\e clear and
clean.

Menendez: Before we even assess locations, it is imperative that we immediately assess what we now have, assess how it is being enforced and assess the programs in
place for landlords to provide affordable housirig so that we can take action on what we have; create more incentive programs that would benefit the tenant, landlords and
city; and have strong disciplinary policies for deviations (current and for the future).
We cannot afford to build anything anywhere (financially or environmentally) until we have a handle on what we have and we cannot afford to lose not even one more
affordable housing unit.





Johnston: An approved and widely accepted economic generator that will fund the improvements and maintenance of this property and that would satisfy the requirements
of the property conveyance under the economic development grant, such as a marina.
A boardwalk or promenade that would provide access to the waterfront that could eventually provide a waterfront trail from Fort Zachary Taylor to Mallory Square.
Green space for picnics, sports and public concerts.

Mancini: Commuruty facilities for children and senior citizens, convention center run b) the city.

Menendez: Because I have so strongly advocated the need for the beautification of our island and maintaining this beauty, it is extremely important to me that the water-
front's property have as much natural resources available as possible, specifically parks and beaches. As in any situation, there has to be some type of funding to get what
we want.
I am in favor of multi-cultural and multi-age proposals, particularly those that would benefit our youth and families, and those that would fund the availability of having
parks and beaches at this site. The culinary school is just but one developing idea but definitely in line with what I am talking about.





Johnston: Add a level to the Old Town City Hall parking area, creating a two-story parking structure built within the height guidelines.
Add a two-story parking garage behind B.O.'s Fishwagon in front of the waterfront.
Reduce the need for parking, thus reducing emissions, by encouraging residents and.tourists to bike, scooter, use mass transportation or walk.

Mancini: Enforcement is not lax.

Menendez: I'm more immediately concerned with the difficulty of finding parking downtown and in front of or near our homes, and that once found, how incredibly incon-
venient and/or expensive it is to park, much less pay for a ticket.
There needs to be an incentive program for those fortunate enough to be physically fit to ride bikes, mopeds and scooters and for those that are currently using small,
compact and economy vehicles. And we need to have a weekly "free locals' day" or after-hours parking available at City Hall for.locals.



Johnston: Accomplishments: Hiring our new city manager and city attorney, the city initiative to create an accurate inventory of all deed-restricted affordable units.
Fumbled: The near approval of the request to transfer transient rental licenses to residential Old.Town. Had a very dedicated group of residents not been vigilant, this
transfer would have passed through the current commission. And the ongoing dispute with the Truman Annex Master Property Homeowners Association.

Mancini: I will not criticize our current City Commission. I am running for commiioner in District 5. for I feel \%ith my longtime community inuoliement. I can con'-
tribute back to the cit. nhat 1 ha\e received.

Menendez: We have consistently fumbled on affordable housing. There's much politics involved on this issue and little action. Our second fumble has been to allow our
precious limited natural resources to be monopolized by individuals who are not from our community and who have taken advantage of our hospitality and warm weather.
The county and city must work together to provide alternative resting areas.
The best accomplishments this year involved the hiring of the new city manager, a man of much integrity and good will, and having kept the ad valorem taxes at the same
level as last year.

18 more units


It would go
on the site of
Suncrest park
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The Key West Community
Housing Committee on Monday
endorsed a Habitat for Humanity
project on Stock Island that
would bring the community 18
more affordable homes for own-
ership.
The site is from 5176 to 5180
Suncrest Road, where the
Suncrest Mobile Home Park is
now located.
The item is on the agenda for
the Monroe County Land
Authority Advisory meeting
scheduled for today at the
Marathon library at 9:30 a.m.
Half the two-acre property
consists of wetlands and the
other half is home to lots 27, 28,
29 and 30 of the Suncrest
Subdivision.
The six.current residents of
the mobile-home site have the
opportunity to apply for the pro-
ject's leases, according to a letter
to the Housing Committee from
Bob Calhoun, director of Habitat
for Humanity of the Lower Keys
and Key West.
Calhoun said the project
would be similar to Bayside
Landing, an 18-unit complex
Habitat is constructing on Big
Coppitt Key on 1.4 acres.
Monthly payments based on a
30-year mortgage would be
$1,027 for a three-bedroom unit,
$856 for a two-bedroom unit and


$619 for a one-bedroom.
Eligibility for affordable
housing is based upon income
guidelines under Monroe
County's median income.
-For 2007, it's $61,000 for a
family of four. So if the house-
hold brings in 80 percent of the
median income, it would be eli-
gible if it earns $48,800 or less.
If Habitat for Humanity's
vision becomes a reality, the
group would develop the project
after the Land Authority
acquires the land, after which
Habitat would not need any
more County subsidies.
Calhoun said he's talked with
Land Authority Director Mark
Rosch and Heather Beckman
and Andrew Trivette from
Monroe County's Growth
Management Department, who
have knowledge of the property.
That's is how he came up with
the potential for 18 units.
"I think it's an interesting,
promising site," Rosch said.
"But we're really at the prelimi-
nary stages of looking at it right
now."
Over the past three months of
reviewing the property and proj-
ect details, the Housing
Committee decided the real
estate is a prime location for Key
West and Stock Island workers.
The Community Housing
Committee, with its new
Chairman Omar Garcia, a fire-
fighter, applauded Calhoun's
presentation. Members said they
hope similar projects spring up
in the future.


this story in the News section).
One of the three commission
seats up for grabs has generated
more interest than in the past,
with the District 4 seat now a
contested race for the first time in
12 years.
In 1995,teacher Julia Jackson
ran against Commissioner Harry
Bethel for that seat. He retained it
and in subsequent elections in
1999 and 2003, Bethel ran unop-
posed. Overall, he served four
four-year terms.
"I guess they figured I was
doing a good job," he said. "But.
now the seat is vacant" because
he decided to run for Utility
Board instead.
The New Town district is
home to 2,340 registered voters.
The trio of candidates voters
will choose from consists of Key
West Shades owner Barry
Gibson, attorney and Planning
Board Chairman Richard
Klitenick and retired attorney and
Florida Keys Outreach Coalition
member George Maurer.
Each seemingly has chosen a
primary issue on which to base
his campaign.
Gibson has repeated his desire
to be an official for the people


and run Key West "like a busi-
ness," being fiscally conserva-
tive.
Klitenick is determined to
improve quality-of-life issues on
the island, taking back parks and
public beaches from problem
vagrants.
Maurer has focused a lot of
energy on examining the budget,
specifically tax-increment financ-
ing, which are special property
tax- funds that go to Bahama
Village for community pairs and
the Key West Bight to repay a
bond.
"You have to pin down an
issue," Elections Supervisor
Harry Sawyer said, "something
that you're going to get out there
and talk about. If there isn't any-
thing to run on, typically people
won't run."
Sawyer said it's typical to see
an increase in candidates running
for a seat when an incumbent
decides not to run for re-election.
. "A lot of interest has been gen-
erated in that district," he said
"Now they have an active ballot
with plenty of things to vote on.
There's just a lot of energy that
gets created when you have an
open seat like that."


Deep Impact 36'


In District 5 for the City
Commission, there are 2,295 reg-
istered voters. Candidates are
incumbent Jose Menendez, Fair
Insurance Rate for Monroe
President Teri Johnston and for-
mer Historical Architectural
Review Commission Vice
Chairman Vince Mancini.
Menendez defeated Pearl's
Rainbow guesthouse owner
Heather Carruthers in a
November 2003 runoff, after
which she sued alleging problems
with absentee ballots. The court
tossed her lawsuit.
District 2 has the fewest regis-
tered voters, 1,565. Running are
incumbent Mark Rossi and
banker Todd German.
Some dramatic change is evi-
dent in the Utility Board races, as
well. The board sets policy for
and oversees Keys Energy
Services, the electric utility serv-
ing customers from the Seven
Mile Bridge south.
"They really haven't had a real
Utility Board race in a along time
either," Sawyer said.
Early voting continues from
8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. though
Saturday.

Jet-noise workshop set


Navy trying
to finally put
issue to rest
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


U.S. Navy officials say they
are ready to once and for all clear
up misunderstandings about jet-
noise levels for Naval Air Station
Key West.
On Oct. 23, they will sponsor
what's called an Air Installation
Compatible Use Zone Awareness
Workshop.
"It will provide a chance for
people to talk to experts one on
one and come and go as they
please," Navy spokesman Jim
Brooks said. "The workshop will
include various poster sections
with experts talking about the
mission of NAS, the AICUZ
process, how we fly."
The workshop will run from 4
to 7 p.m. at the Doubletree Grand
Key Resort on South Roosevelt
Boulevard in Key West.
Brooks said complaints have
come from just a handful of resi-
dents, including Tamarac resident


Paul Carruso, who has launched a
Web site railing against NAS
noise.
Carusso called the base Friday
complaining that jets dumped
fuel on his house. Brooks said the
Navy responded immediately,
sending out a hazardous-materi-
als team to test for residual fuel. It
found no evidence of fuel.
"The squadrons all said they
didn't do it," Brooks said, adding
that Carusso's was the only com-
plaint. "He could have smelled jet
exhaust.".
The newest AICUZ, intro-
duced by the Navy in March and
not yet adopted by the Monroe
County Growth Management
Department, has riled some
homeowners whose properties lie
within newly outlined noise con-
tours. A handful of residents com-
plain new landing patterns bring
aircraft over their homes unnec-
essarily.
The county accepted and oper-
ates under the 1977 AICUZ,
which assesses the noise and
safety impacts of the air station to
surrounding neighborhoods. But
the update is necessary, Navy


officials say, because aircraft
have changed drastically the past
three decades.
The AICUZ recommends the
kinds of land use the county
should allow around the air sta-
tion based upon safety and noise
levels. Because it is a zoning tool,
Navy officials are urging the
county to adopt the document.
County Commissioner Dixie
Spehar pushed to get the docu-
ment adopted in July, but Growth
Management Director Drew
Trivette argued against it.
"It's my recommendation that
we in no way agree with this doc-
ument at this time," he told the
commission. He warned that the
county might take on enforce-
ment responsibility, which in turn
could leave it open to land-tak-
ings lawsuits.
Instead of adopting the
AICUZ, the commissioners
asked the Navy to organize a
workshop.
The County Commission has
also invited NAS Capt. J.R.
Brown to speak to a joint meeting
of the County Commission and
Key West City Commission Dec.
5 at 7 p.m.

Shutter contractor
charged with theft

The owner of Caribbean
Shutters on Summerland Key has
been arrested, charged with theft
for cashing down payment
checks for shutter installation,
then failing to do the work.
Jeffrey Schaumleffel, 39, is
charged with two counts of grand
theft.
According to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office, one vic-
tim lives on Ashe Street in Key
West and paid him $1,500 in
April to install hurricane shutters
on her home. He cashed the
check but did not do the work,
deputies say.
The other victim lives on 19th
Street in Key West and paid him
$725 as a down -payment to
install shutters. Again, he cashed
the check but never did the work,
they said.
Detective Paul Shultz helped
the victims send a letter to
Schaumleffel telling him he had
30 days to refund the money or


face criminal charges. He failed to
pay either victim, deputies said.
He was taken into custody*
Sunday.

City staff sweeps
away illegal signs

Key West is participating in
the second annual Statewide Sign
Sweep this week, targeting signs
illegally placed on city rights of
way as a means of cleaning up
the city.
Code compliance officers will
be out Friday removing signs
from both city and county rights
of way within city limits.
Officers will then tally up the
number of confiscated signs and
dispose of them.
"The Key West Clean and
Green Committee has identified
cleaning up city rights of way as
a priority," Deputy Assistant City
Manager Annalise Mannix said.
"Joining the statewide sign
sweep is the perfect start for that
effort."

Navy privatizes nearly 900 homes


Priority goes to
those affiliated
with military
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

In an effort to ease the U.S.
Navy's housing maintenance bur-
den and improve military housing
on base, a 50-year contract was
signed Friday between Naval
Facilities Engineering Command
and Government Military
Housing to privatize about 890
units at Naval Air Station Key
West.
The negotiations led to the
largest military privatization proj-
ect implemented in the country,
with 11 Navy bases in five south-
eastern states signing on for the
privatization to occur Monday.
For Key West, the privatized
homes will be at Sigsbee,
Trumbo Point, Truman Annex
and Peary Court. They are two- to
four-bedroom units.
"At this time, the majority of
leases have been signed with only
a few outstanding," Government
Military Housing Community
Manager Libby Dudley said. "As
of Oct. 1, we are ready to hit the
ground running."
According to NAS Key West
spokesman Jim Brooks, the pro-
ject's No. 1 priority is finding
housing for military families,


although civilian workers for the
Navy and employees of the
Department of Defense are also
high on the priority list.
Civilians not all affiliated with
the military can still apply, but
given the nature of the list,
they're unlikely to be chosen.
Government Military Housing
supplies military personnel and
their families with off-base and
on-base homes across the coun-
try. Since jumping into the mar-
ket in 1999, the company says on
its Web site, it boasts more mili-
tary clients than any other hous-
ing company working with mili-
tary.
As of Oct. 1, it will also be in
charge of unit renovations,
repairs and management of on-
base units for Key West. Brooks
said the majority of homes that
will be completely tor down and
rebuilt will be at Trumbo Point.
The public-private venture
will lend NAS Key West civilians
ample housing benefits as well as
off-base benefits, Brooks said.
Since Hurricane Wilma
repairs in 2005, 300 new military
units went online and about 150
civilian families moved into mili-
tary housing.
"It's a good chance that many
lived out in the community some-
where," Brooks said.
This means Key West has
already seen some units freed,


and more will most likely open as
the project kicks off.
According to a Naval
Engineering press release, the
family housing projects will be
implemented in other stations
such as Jacksonville; Fort Worth
and Pensacola.
Construction and redevelop-
ment of certain units will begin
later in the year, with an estimates
completion time of late 2013.
Why such a delay?
According to Brooks, the


redevelopment of already exist-
ing units must be done in phases
because people already live in
some of them.
"If you go in and start tearing
down homes to rebuild them, that
means that you'll have to keep a
certain amount open," he said.
"It's a progressive plan for
improving government housing
here. It's something that you do
over time."
Costs of the units vary by the
military's basic allowance for


housing, which depends on rank.
"There are way too many vari-
ables" to determine a rent rate,
Dudley said. "Right now, we're
still doing our fair market research
for the affiliated civilians."
"The rents for contractors and
non-affiliated civilians [i.e.,
Department of Homeland
Security, postal employees] are
based on market rates," Brooks
wrote in an email.

rate increase


But it's not

as much as

utility wanted
Keynoter Staff


The Florida Public Service
Commission on Tuesday
approved a temporary rate
hike for the Stock Island cus-
tomers of the local sewer utili-
ty.
KW Resort Utilities is
allowed to increase rates 19.93
percent, said Bev De Millo,
acting director of the commis-
sion's public information
office.
KW Resort Utilities has
requested a 57.5 percent rate
hike to offset operating losses,
utility spokesman Bill Barry
said.
The new rate, which will go
into effect as soon as users are
notified of the increase, is con-
sidered interim, effective until
the PSC can fully investigate
the utility's request.
De Millo said the commis-
sion set a review hearing for
February. At that time, the rate
could go up or, if investigators
find no grounds for the
increase, customers could be
refunded the higher rates and
any interest accrued.
Initially, PSC staff recom-
mended an interim increase of
21 percent. However,' De
Millo said, the commission
decided on a somewhat lower


O

rate.
The average residential
sewer bill on Stock Island,
according to documentation
filed by KW Resort, is $39.20.
The rate the utility is asking
for means the average monthly
bill would go up to nearly $62.
The interim rate approved
will add just under $8 to the
average residential sewer bill.

Keys link for new bridge?


The Seven Mile's
design firm wins
Minnesota deal
McClatchy Tribune

The bridge collapsed. Let's
build a new one.
If only it were so simple.
On Sept. 19, Minnesota trans-
portation officials selected what
will likely be the winning bid to
rebuild the Interstate 35W bridge
in Minneapolis.


Cost: $233.8 million.
Completion: 437 days, with
construction beginning around
Oct. 15.
Look: Possibly something like
a Keys bridge, since the winning
Tallahassee design firm designed
the Seven Mile Bridge, which
opened in 1982.
But there are plenty of vari-
ables that remain 195 million
to be exact, in the form.of a $195
million check the state is anx-
iously waiting for Congress to


send.
What's holding things up is
the U.S. House, which passed its
.transportation-funding package
before the Mississippi River
bridge collapsed Aug. 1, killing
13, and now needs to reopen it. A
representative of U.S. Rep. James
Oberstar, who chairs the House
Transportation and Infrastructure
Committee, said Wednesday the
process will take at least several

Figg designed Seven Mile Bridge


BRIDGE / From 15

Linda Figg as she pumped her fist
in the MnDOT cafeteria in. St.
Paul moments after the last bid
was opened.
Figg, chief executive officer
and president of Florida-based
Figg Engineering Group, is part
of the team that is the apparent
winner of the bridge rebuilding
project.
That team is led by general
contractors Flatiron Constructors
Inc. of Colorado, Manson
Construction Co. of Washington
state and Johnson Bros. Corp. of


Florida. Figg's firm is the lead
bridge designer.
In other words, Figg's vision
is the one that will span the
Mississippi River when all's said
and done.
What will it look like?
That's secret as are all the
other details of the four bids -
until the bid is officially awarded,
McFarlin said, citing state bid
disclosure laws. The bid is
expected to be officially awarded
before Oct. 15.
It could look like just about
anything, based on past designs
by the Figg Group, whose motto
is "Creating Bridges as Art."


Designs have included the
sailing cable-stayed Chesapeake
& Delaware Canal Bridge in
Delaware, the low-profile Seven
Mile Bridge in the Florida Keys
and St. Paul's Wabasha Street
Bridge.
Figg promised the appearance
of at least some aspects of the
bridge will be up to Minnesotans.
The company prides itself on
a workshop-style process that
solicits ideas from the public. A
recently opened bridge in Maine,
for example, incorporates granite
details, an idea that emerged from
such workshops.

Last Stand celebrates 20 years


Environmental
stewards

keep it green

By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Without a handful of con-
cemed citizens, the Keys would
be a very different place.
Test missiles might fire every
week from Cudjoe Key and be
shot down over the backcountry.
Two waterfront nature preserves
could now be bristling with con-
dos. Oil rigs might have sprouted
from the coral reef.
Twenty years ago, though, a
handful of outraged citizens
banded together and called them-
selves Last Stand. They helped
stop the missiles, drew attention
to proposed oil drilling and over
the years preserved rare green
space in the Keys.
Over two decades the faces
have changed, as have some of
the issues, but the fire and dedica-
tion is as strong as ever.


"There's a relentless .push
from the other side for develop-
ment," Last Stand President
Albert Sullivan says "The threat
is' always there. It's important to
educate the new people about
protecting the Keys as being dif-
ferent from the rest of Florida."
Sullivan's been on the board
more than three years.
Last Stand celebrated its 20th
anniversary Sunday at the Nancy
Foster Eco Discovery Center, the
main office of the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary at the
Truman Waterfront in Key West.
Appropriate, since Last Stand
was instrumental in helping
establish the sanctuary in the
mid-1990s.
The nonprofit group originally
came together to protect Key
West's Salt Ponds from develop-
ment.
"Going back to the very
beginning," board member
Dennis. Henize said, "preserva-
tion of the Salt Ponds has always
been considered a big success."


Henize has lived in the Keys
more than 30 years. He's been on
Last Stand's board for about
eight.
During Sunday's celebration,
he was awarded Florida's
Community Steward Award by
the 1000 Friends of Florida, a
nonprofit environmental group.
"Dennis's intelligence, level-
head, integrity, work ethic, com-
mitment and good humor have
been among the most important
assets the Keys' environmental
community has had over-the last
30 years," said environmental
attorney Richard Grosso, who
nominated Henize.
Not every fight was a success;
many resulted in mixed out-
comes.
Last Stand tried vigorously to
stop development of Peary Court,
a U.S. Navy-owned chunk of
land between White Street and
Palm Avenue in Key West. One
board member went so far as to
threaten to blow up developers,
eventually serving prison time for
his passionate opposition to the
housing that now occupies the


area.
Proposed waterfront devel-
opment called Watermark ended-
up a mixed ending.
Last Stand opposed the expen-
sive condos at the Key West
Bight, faulting plans that exceed-
ed the city's own height limita-
tions. Last Stand won and the
condos didn't go up. However,
Harbor House is now breaking
ground on the same site. It is
within the height limits, so there's
no impetus for Last Stand to fight
it.
There's a long list of issues the
275-member organization contin-
ues taking stands on:
+ Affordable housing.
+ Runway extension at Key
West International Airport.
Cruise ships.
The county's tier land-map-
ping system.
Overall habitat preserva-
tion.
When Margaret Mead said "a
small group of thoughtful people
could change the world," a plucky
bunch-in Monroe County took it
to heart. And indeed, they have. "

Hurricanes


storm over


Moore Haven


Soares' long
punt return
is the winner
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


The winning edge for Coral
Shores in a victory over Moore
Haven could have been a close
loss to Key West High School,
the Hurricane coach says.
A 76-yard punt return by
Jason Soares in the fourth quar-
ter carried the Canes over the
host Terriers, 22-14, Friday in
Moore Haven.
"It was another learning
experience for us," Coral
Shores coach Todd Gideon
said. "We drove a long way and
played in a tight game."
"Maybe the tough battle
against Key West [a 15-7 loss
Sept. 7] helped us in a tough


battle against Moore Haven,"
he said.
Moore Haven essentially
played Coral Shores (1-2 regu-
lar season, 2-2 overall) even
through three quarters.
The Hurricanes, toning
down their passing attack in
wet and drizzly conditions, pro-
duced their most effective
ground game of the season.
Junior quarterback Chris
Rini scored the Canes' first two
touchdowns on runs of five and
seven yards. He also led the
team in rushing with 118 yards,
and Julius Blankenship ran for
74 yards.
Travis Sebastian returned
from injury, taking over at cen-
ter from senior D.J. Farr, who
moved to right guard. "The line
played well," Gideon said.

A bit drained from two meets
within 20 hours, both the girls'
and boys' Key West High School
swimming teams still defeated
Wellington High at the Florida
Community College Aquatics
Center Saturday morning.
The girls won, 87-82, and the
boys won, 76-66.
"They were tired but main-
tained the times they have been
doing," coach Lori Bosco said.
Being tired didn't affect soph-
omore Max Kohler, who swam
the 500-yard freestyle in 6:01.04


to finish second to teammate
Travis Stokes and lower his previ-
ous-best time by 16 seconds.
Kohler's sister, Rachel, won
the girls' 500 free in 6:23.15 and
was also on the winning 200 and
400 freestyle relay teams with
Alessandra Hally, Noelle Lark
and Effie Ford.
Hally also won the 100 and
200 freestyle, and Ford won the
50 free and 100 backstroke.

The Marathon High School
girls' volleyball team scored a
much-needed victory over vis-

Monday in a battle of two
struggling Keys' programs.
The Dolphins defeated the
Conchs in three straight games,

Shelby Kuck each had five kills

The Dolphins built a 16-8
.lead in the first game before
allowing the Conchs to rally by
misfiring on several serves.
"We missed eight serves in
the first game. That's kind of
been our downfall," Marathon
coach Kevin Freeman said.
"Even though we won, they
had some momentum" going
into the second game.
Freeman said the Dolphins
managed to hold a steady lead
in the second game, though the
team's intensity was lacking.

No contest for Lady Eagles

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


The Lady Eagles knew they
needed a few things to go their
way in Friday's Island Christian
rematch with rival Princeton
Christian.
Instead, everything went the
ICS way.
Before an enthusiastic, sign-
waving crown, the Lady Eagles
barreled through three straight
games to beat the Lady Panthers,
25-15, 25-15, 25-14.
"The girls were ready for
them," Eagle coach Sheryl Yost
said. "We had super practices, and
they were psyched all day at
school."
Princeton beat the Eagles in
four games in a Sept. 11 match in
Miami-Dade. But two of the
Panther game wins were close,
decided by errant ICS serving.
"This time, we kept
[Princeton] off the net,"-Eagle
senior captain Carrlee Pinder said,
"and we put most of our serves
in."
Friday, Island Christian (4-2)'
simply did everything better than
Princeton serves, digs, passes
and kill shots.

The Conch boys lost to Mater,

which had 10.
The Key West girls, again
dominating the freestyle events,
took first place with 44 points,
while Mater had 37 and the
Dolphins 13.
Victorious for Marathon were
Matteo Curruro, who won the 200

Melanie Boyd, who won the 200

Coach Sheryl Yost encourages the Lady Eagles in their
dominating performance over Princeton Christian. They are
(from left) Melanie Meroni, Brittany Messinger, Jenny Glaze,.
Danielle Price and Jennifer Subic.


Even freshman setter Brittany
Messinger, who still needs to
grow a few inches to hit 5-foot-
even, lasered in a kill shot from
center court. --
In their first and only home
match of the fall, Eagle fans also
got their first look at sophomore
Jenny Glaze, a talented sopho-
more transfer.
Early in the third game, Glaze
delivered a string of eight serves
that decided the game when it was
just getting started.
Glaze proved just as efficient
at the net, and running down
errant passes.
Island Christian made several
impressive saves on rallies that
seemed to be going Princeton's
.way, largely by staying calm, in
position and in control.
"The attitude is a lot better this


year," Pinder said. "Everybody's
giving a lot of effort."
Sophomore veteran Jennifer
Subic nailed several kill shots and
connected on two serving aces.
Freshman Melanie Meroni
worked into the rotation and
served a dozen points.
Messinger uses an underhand-
ed serve but has developed a con-
sistent placement that put her
among the serving-points leaders.
"This doesn't mean we'll beat
everybody left on our schedule,"
Yost said, "but we means we
should beat most of them. We'll
give it a shot."
Thursday, the Eagles travel to
face Redland Christian, one of the
most formidable teams left on the
regular-season schedule. The dou-
bleheader match starts at 3:30

Cross-country Fins split win


The boys win,
the girls fall
against Patriots
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

It was raining torrentially
and they weren't exactly sure
whom they might be running
against, but members of the.
Marathon High School cross-
country team did get a match
in Monday at Sombrero
Country Club.
Chances were good the
Dolphins might run against
themselves since scheduled
opponent Island Christian
School has not fielded a team
this year, but Florida Christian
School did show up.
The boys picked up their
first victory of the season, 23-
38, while the girls fell 36-20.
"They seemed to be having
a really good time," coach
Amy Urban said of the rain-
soaked match. "Actually, they
got some personal records in
the rain; compared to last
week they did a lot better.
Urban' said the cooler
weather allowed several run-
ners to best their previous


times, in some cases by more
than two minutes. The team'
has also been doing drills
aimed at teaching the kids to
run at an even pace.
"We're trying to get them a
good pace so they know how
to run when they begin,"
Urban said.
Naomi Valerdi continues to
shine for the Dolphins; finish-
ing first among the girls in
22:20.
SValerdi finished well ahead
of her personal best, but Urban
said she is convinced the sev-
enth-grader can do better.
"She can run faster than
that; but she never has any
competition. A girl from the
other team was running with
her so it was pushing her,"
Urban said.
Following Valerdi to the
finish were Emily Brandjes
(25:40), Kelsey Won (26:16),
Marcy Brandjes (26:33) and
Melissa York (28:05).
On the boys' side, senior
J.J. Cadwell and eighth-grader
Tommy Dodamead continued
to challenge one another.
Urban said Dodamead fin-
ished ahead of Cadwell for the
first time in 21:17. Cadwell


finished in 21:34 as both run-
ners shaved significant times
off their previous records.
Following them to the line
were Riley Durkin (22:51),
Matt DeFillips (23:10) and
Thomas Bowersox (25:07).
The Dolphins will run next
Oct. 11 at Westwood Christian
at 4 p.m.

Key West High School football
coach Robert James looked up -
yet again at a scoreboard
whose red numbers showed his
team was down by a touchdown
and not even a minute had
elapsed.
"I knew then that the night
would get bad," James said
Monday, reflecting on the opening
of Friday night's 39-3 loss to dis-
trict rival Monsignor Pace at home.
In a preseason game and in the
regular-season .opener at
Marathon, the Conchs trailed after
the opening kickoff was returned
for aTD.
This time, a fumble on the first
play by sophomore quarterback
Phillip Young was returned 62
yards for a touchdown and a 6-0
Pace lead.
Still, there was no hint the
game would deteriorate before a
hopeful crowd the way it did, with
Pace quarterback Von Thomas
throwing four scoring passes that
small, disoriented Conch defen-
sive backs were helpless against.
On Pace's first possession,
Thomas threw two- incomplete
passes and then was intercepted
by sophomore Chris Harris, who
ran 32 yards to set up a first down
at the Pace 18 yard line.
The Conchs, who fell to 2-2,
got as far as the 6 but had to settle
for a 26-yard field goal by

Thomas Daubs that made it 6-3.
Thomas then took over, throw-
ing TD passes of 19, 18 and 49
yards for a 25-3 lead before half-
time. Pace's fleet receivers got
behind the Conch defensive
backs, the 5-9 Harris and, in one
instance, senior Michael
Gallagher.
Harris "was in good position
but a couple of times he made the
wrong turn," James said. "He tried
but they were faster and taller.

Pace (2-2) added two TDs in

and a 39-yard interception return.
The Conchs were held under
100 yards and Young completed
only one of nine passes. "He

game] and it affected his throwing
motion," James said.
James praised Alfred

there were more boats out
looking there ma\ be more

One lugh point in the off-

amberjack, Capt. Kevin Kelly
hooked and caught a Warsaw%
grouper that tipped the scales
at 4. pounds. His Mlotltio Ide
customers also caught three
amberiack and a good num-
ber of blackfin tuna.

Reefs
Reports from the previous

probably\ that the current is
either nonexistent or the \er\
calm seas that produce clear
water have the snapper too
w\ an.
The spawn is over, an\ -
wai, and the relatively\ ea.\

thing of the past for the most
part. Charter captains are
:waiting for the winter species
to show up and rum on.

Gulf, bay
No telling Gulf report
set. but Capt. Lou Brubaker
did have a half da\ on the
near Gulf this week. He
reports the action was very
good on trout, ladyfish, and
mangrove and lane snapper.
And some mackerel were
cruisin, behind the boat.

Flats, backcountry
Snook action seems to
headline the reports this week
The snook are being
caught around islands in
creeks and in the runoffs on
the flats around Flamingo.
Sea trout action is good also.
There is some discolored
\.ater in Flonda Ba\ that
mav be an algae bloom.
Several guides have reported
the off-color water just
behind Islamorada out
around Twin Keys, although
the water is clear beyond the

7th slam. looks like record


Callion, Podowski
awaiting word
from the IGFA

The 48th annual Marathon
International Bonefish Tour-
nament is in the books the
record books.
Capt. Jack Callion of
Marathon and angler Mike
Podowski of North Fort Myers
did something Sunday no other
anglers have done in the history
of International Game Fish
Association recordkeeping:
they caught and released their
seventh grand slam (a grand
slam comprises a bonefish, per-
mit and tarpon all caught and
released the same day).
Podowski is in the process
of documenting the feat with
the IGFA. If accepted, it would
break the previous record of six -
shared by two others.
Callion and Podowski have
fished together since 1987 and
did not realize the significance
of their slam quest until recent-
ly, Callion says.
"I was sitting down with the
IGFA record book and noticed
how close we were having six
at the time," he says. "The

thing that
is interest-
ing with
Mike's
slams is
that they
were all
done using
6-pound
test only.
That's
quite a
feat. One
of the per-
mit that
we caught


in one grand slam measured out
at 43 inches overall length."
Be-cause of their propensity
for catching slams in the three-
day Interna-tional Bonefish
Tourna-ment.- this was, their
sixth slam in the tournament
over the years an anony-
mous donor a few years back
supplied the trophy for a new
division that previously did not
exist.
And no surprise in this
year's event was that a Callion
won the grand-slam trophy. But
it was John Callion, 18-year-
old son of Jack.
The younger Callion, a cap-
tain in his own right, fishing
with angler Rick Stem of New


Jersey completed the trifecta
with help of a 29-inch bonefish,
which was the deciding factor
in beating out his father Jack.
Asked if there is a competi-
tive streak between the two,
dad replied, "I am so proud of
the job John has done. I'm sure
it is in every ounce of John's
being to beat his father, but I
couldn't be prouder for his
win."
The 29-inch bonefish caught
by the team of Callion/ Stem
also took largest fish honors in
the tournament.
Capt. Albert Ponzoa of
Marathon and angler Gene
Ford of Maryland dominated
this competition from start to
finish, ending with 35 bonefish
(that's roughly 23 percent of all
bonefish caught in the tourna-
ment).
Second place overall was
Gary Brown with 26 fish, guid-
ed by captains Butch Hewlett
of Marathon and Tim Carlile of

ning guide.
