This is the question decided
Thursday by the Supreme
"This gives a clear answer,"
Scales said. "Only a change that
renders the title inaccurate or
misleading would require the
process to begin anew. So if the
general purpose of an ordinance
that was advertised stays the
same, you don't have to start all
According to the property
owners who challenged the law,
the Monroe County Com-
mission, during the first of two
readings of the ordinance in
1997, "discussed a different and
previously unavailable draft" of
the law. The'same thing hap-
pened at the second reading,
they charged.
The court wrote, "we hold
that the changes to an ordinance
during the enactment process

are only substantial or material
if they change the ordinance's
general purpose."
Scales says attorneys for
cities and counties all over
Florida have already contacted
him regarding the decision. It's
an issue, he says, that is con-
stantly tested by local govern-
ment bodies.
"You have to balance the
importance of public input and
the importance of public
notice," said Scales.
During the process of enact-
ing laws, he explained, it's not
uncommon for changes to be

made in response to comments
from the public.
Scales acknowledges that the
decision is a technicality, but
it's one kept alive by the plain-
In the meantime, it's likely
the last the county will see of
challenges to the rental ordi-
"The law says they have five
years to challenge it," Scales
said, "and that has passed. The
statute of limitations has
passed, so there shouldn't be
any more legal challenges."

proved he could not, build addi-
tional workforce units, he would
have to pay around $11 per addi-
tional square foot, Islamorada
Mayor Dave Boerner said in an
interview following the meeting.
To determine the number of
affordable housing units
-required, the ordinance considers
the size of the expansion, the pro-
posed use of the property and the
number of new jobs the construc-
tion could create.
The council approved the
ordinance with an amendment,
introduced by Councilwoman
Cathi Hill, requiring developers
to meet 30 percent of the work-
force housing needs created by
new construction, cut from an
original 70-percent goal.
"This was more reasonable
for the hotel owners,"
Councilman Chris Sante said in a
phone interview a day after the
The lower percentage means
1.9 workforce housing units are
required for a 10,000 square foot
expansion, rather than 4.4 units,
Boemer said.
The ordinance states that
developers can build the housing
on or off site, and dormitory-
style housing with up to eight
people per unit can account for
no more than 25 percent of the
housing requirement.
Councilman Don Achenberg
cast the only "no" vote.
Achenberg said inclusionary
zoning was a tax that "could ulti-
mately bring growth to a halt in
Achenberg had initially been
in favor of the ordinance earlier
this year, but said he had "an
epiphany" after reviewing it fur-
"There are better ways to pay
for affordable housing," he said
in a later interview. "This places
an unfair burden on a certain por-
tion of our community. The 30-
percent requirement is better than
the 70-percent requirement, but
it's still not the right way."

Wastewater contract
The council unanimously
approved a $273,481 amended
contract with US Water Services
Corp., the company operating the
wastewater treatment plant on
Plantation Key.
At an Aug. 23 meeting, the
council refused a contract of

about $434,000 with US Water,
saying it would raise the bill for
Plantation Key residents already
hooked up to the plant to about
$80 per month..
Director of Public Works and
Utilities Myles Milander said
that because the lesser contract
doesn't provide for full-time staff
at the plant, or for monthly flow
increases, Islamorada will pay
more than the face value of the
contract by issuing work orders
when US Water staff puts in extra
time for repairs and when flow
Councilman Michael
Reckwerdt said that many of the
additional costs are warranty
issues that will eventually be
reimbursed, and the use of work
orders makes tracking warranty
issues much easier.
The council also voted to take
$50,592 from the general fund to
pay for work orders already com-
pleted by US Water, with the
stipulation that public works staff
provides options for replacing
the money at an Oct. 25 meeting.
Warranty items account for
almost $44,000 of the work
Council members said they
will not charge Plantation Key
residents for warranty items, and
will look into borrowing money
if necessary.
The council also received a
report from Village Manager
Gary Word on initial negotiations
with the Key Largo Wastewater
Treatment District to pump vil-
lage sewage to Key Largo.
The report said Islamorada

Piracy was '92 stunner

Senior Staff Writer

As investigators piece togeth-
er clues in the mystery of what
happened aboard the Miami
Beach charterboat Joe Cool,
dockside memories in the Florida
Keys turned back 15 years;
In January 1992, Capt. Hans
Baumgarten of Key West
drowned after two men hijacked
his charterboat, Cowboy Too.
The two were convicted of
first-degree murder a year later
and sentenced to life imprison-
"The circumstances are so
close its scary," said Becky
Herrin, information officer for
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office, while looks at reports
from the Key West case.
Longtime Keys charter cap-
tain Jim Sharpe remembered the
Baumgarten case well. "They
ordered him overboard and he
died," Sharpe said.
The two Cowboy Too defen-
dants Carlos Gomez Cola, then
19; and Hector Manuel Rivas
Caballero, then 30 were arrest-
ed after a freighter spotted the
"Cowboy Too" floating near
Rebecca Shoal off Key West.
The boat had run out of gas.
When found near Cay Sal, the
Joe Cool had run out of gas. Two

men who chartered the boat were
found Monday, aboard a life raft
12 miles away from the aban-
doned boat.
They said pirates murdered
the four-person crew and forced
them into the raft.
The search for the Joe Cool
crew captain Jake Branam,'
27; his wife, Kelley Branam, 30;
Branam's half-brother Scott
Gamble, 35, and first mate
Samuel Kairy, 27, all of Miami
Beach began Sunday when
family members reported the
boat overdue.
Searchers found the aban-
doned boat near Cay Sal, mid-
way between Florida and Cuba.
On Thursday, the Coast Guard
called off its official search, say-
ing its extensive sea-and-air res-
cue attempt found no signs of
any survivors.
The Joe Cool's passengers,
Kirby Archer, 35, a fugitive from
Arkansas, and Miami-Dade resi-
dent Guillermo Zarabozo, 19,
remained in custody this week
after bail was denied. They have
been charged with lying to inves-
tigators, but additional charges
could be pending.
The suspects reportedly paid
$4,000 for a trip to Bimini.
In the 1992 hijacking of
Baumgarten's Cowboy Too, the

defendants claimed the captain,
56, jumped overboard when they
asked him to take them to their
native Cuba. He was last seen
swimming toward another boat,
they said.
Baumgarten's body was
found at sea by a fellow charter
"I don't know what you can
do to prevent this kind of thing.
There have been other [hijack-
ing] cases in the Keys," Sharpe
"All you can do is follow your
hunches," Sharpe said. "If some-
thing feels suspicious, take a dif-
ferent charter out."
Most maritime hijackings that
make news in the Keys have
occurred when Cubans comman-
deer a vessel from their home
country in a bid to reach the U.S.
However, some local boats
have been hijacked.
In 2002, Key Largo real-
estate broker Ray Warner, then
79, was working on his 20-foot
boat when two bank robbers
jumped aboard at his dock. At
gunpoint, they ordered him to
take them to the Dinner Key
Marina near Miami. Warner was
released unharmed.
A year earlier, a murder sus-
pect from Miami tried to hijack a
boat off Key West. He was taken
into custody when a police
sharpshooter wounded him.

Norcross put his expertise and
his opinions about forecasting,
preparedness, and political issues
- into a book.
"The Hurricane Almanac"
came out after the record-break-

that get asked" about hurricanes,
he said.
Norcross revised and expand-
ed the almanac for its second edi-

the science of hurricanes, and
preparation advice and check-

Keys Opinion

We urge caution

on transfer rules

Any discussion about transfer of development rights triggers
an immediate red flag.
And, it ought to, judging from the history of missteps, mis-
takes and misinformation that have been tied to this issue for
quite a long time.
On Wednesday, the Monroe County Planning Commission
chawed on the hot tamale as it relates to mobile home parks.
The idea is to protect mobile home parks from the develop-
ers who would replace low-cost and affordable trailers with
upscale and expensive permanent homes.
But there was enough dissension among the commission
members, and enough skeptics in the audience, that the com-
missioners decided to postpone further action until Oct. 10
when they meet in Marathon.
That makes sense, especially since the idea of "transfer" has
come before the planning commission and the board of county
commissioners wearing many different guises.
Who can soon forget the highly-charged Seahorse Mobile
Home Park "transfer" proposal, which would have allowed the
Boca Raton-based development group to exchange develop-
ment rights from the Big Pine trailer park to a parcel they
hoped to develop in Key Largo.
That very expensive parcel happened to be the former
Rowell's Marina, which has a spectacular bayside frontage and
easily brings dollar signs dancing in the eyes of would-be
Only, there's a catch. The marina is not zoned for the inten-
sity of development needed to offset the rich purchase price.
Thus, the economic incentive to "transfer" some permits
from the Seahorse in order to "make the numbers work."
The county had no mechanism to accomplish such a transfer
and wisely, backed away from the Seahorse deal.
Another variation on the same theme came late last year in a
much-debated so-called 380 agreement with developers of the
Kings Pointe Marina on Stock Island.
In that one, the idea was to transfer 32 building rights from
Lazy Lakes Campground on Sugarloaf Key to the Stock Island
marina project, which would allow market-rate housing to
replace the Lazy Lakes units.
As part of that agreement, which the county ultimately
approved, the developers have promised to build 50 affordable
housing units on the Sugarloaf property.
But that hasn't happened yet.
All of this argues for caution, not a headlong jump into yet
another transfer proposal.
We encourage planning commissioners to err on the side of
caution with this one. More work is needed and there's no rush
to vote out a flawed ordinance at their Oct. 10 meeting.

Then to my comic relief, they built a "bus stop"

I am going to let the secret out, they do not use it.
Instead, they use upside-down shopping carts. They
use the area in front of the Brass Monkey to sprawl
out and throw their garbage everywhere.
I am not sure why the bus stop is not at the air-
port. There is security there, restroom facilities and
all the comforts of home for the people using the bus
services. Maybe the city should consider that as an

Support health agency
For the second year now, I have had the opportu-
nity to work with our local Visiting Nurse
Association to provide a location to offer flu and
pneumonia shots at the Marathon Community
We had such a positive response to the location
last year, we were anxious to schedule several days
again this year at the theatre. During this time, I
learned a lot about the organization from the very
knowledgeable staff assigned to the theater location,
most importantly that the VNA is the only local non-

the service but they aren't locals.
In an effort to work with local organizations and
support our nonprofit agencies, I encourage the com-

be more like those places.
I think we all realize this isn't just the tourists

No raises for teachers?

Outside consultants
blasted by irate
board member

Monroe County ,teachers
should not get raises this year
and the school board should clar-
ify how it compensatesemploy-
ees, consultants are telling the
Monroe County School Board.
But board member John Dick
said he was "furious" with the
report for recommending no
teacher raises, and presented a

34-page rebut-
tal this week.
A t
meeting in
Key West, the
County school
board heard
DICK findings from
Advisory Group, an Albany,
N.Y. firm hired late last year to
review school district pay poli-
This was triggered after a
critical report delivered last year

by Evergreen Solutions raised
questions about supplemental
pay policies and other compen-
sation issues.
Fast forward nine months and
the Albany consultants now rec-
ommend against any across-the-
board pay raises for all teachers,
saying the district now pays
about 13 percent more than 10
other Florida school districts
studied for the report.
The 337-page report com-
pared pay and benefits in Keys
schools to other school districts
and to private companies, meas-
uring whether district compensa-
tion is competitive.
Thereport suggests changes,
including moving all categories
of employees to one pay scale
and paying only regular salaries
rather than salaries plus supple-
ments whenever possible.
The district has come under
fire in recent years for supple-
mental pay given for additional
work. Critics say supplements
are often difficult to justify.
In the Evergreen report deliv-
ered last fall, consultants found
Monroe County schools spend-
ing upward of $260,000 in sup-
plemental pay to district admin-
istrators out of the $1.8 million
spent on extra-duty pay.
This was in a system with
roughly 8,400 students last year.
By contrast, the Broward County
school district which has more
than 266,000 students spends

Salary schedule
debate moves to
October meeting

In another pay-related issue,
Dick requested a revote on a
salary schedule adopted as a for-
mality Sept. 11. He said the
schedule included a 5-percent
raise for assistant principals.
The board approved the
schedule to be in place until it
reaches a contract agreement
with the teachers union.
Superintendent Randy Acevedo
said at the Sept. 11 meeting that
this year's schedule was identical
to the 2006-2007 schedule.
Acevedo later said the differ-
ence in the salary schedules is a
technicality and does not reflect a
raise in the rate of pay. He said a
supplement previously given to
assistant principals for working 10
days more than teachers is includ-
ed in the 2007-08 salary plan.
But Dick and Pribramsky say
they aren't comfortable with
Acevedo's explanation. They
said assistant principals did not
all get the same supplemental
pay, making it difficult to account
for a 5-percent increase.
Acevedo offered to bring the
2006-2007 page of the salary
schedule that details assistant
principal salaries to the Oct. 9
meeting so the board can approve

it for 2007-2008.
Griffiths said the board and
administration need to have a
"very thorough discussion" at the
Oct. 9 meeting to make reasoning
for the 5-percent increase "very

President Carolyn Long said the
no-raise recommendation does
consider the fact that in Key
West, the cost of living is about
13 percent higher than in other
districts, but said housing costs
were taken out of the equation
"because it skews it so much."
"Let's just face it," Long said,
"nobody can afford to buy a
house here."
In his rebuttal, Dick said:
"We all know housing is the

Dick also said the report did-

"Of all the 10 districts Monroe is
compared to, the only one we are
close to in teacher salary range

are ahead of us."
Board member Steven
Pribramsky said he had "no con-

the MAG findings because

Pantelis liquidating market

But won't sign

The Waterfront Market soap

time owner of the market, con-
firmed he is liquidating the
A deal brokered by Key West
Mayor Morgan McPherson to
purchase the market fell
through earlier this month. That
unsolicited deal collapsed when
market owner Buco Pantelis
refused to sign a proposed
agreement barring him from
competing against potential
new owners, the investors say.
Pantelis said he wanted to
sign a more lenient agreement,
even though he was unlikely to
return to the industry.
"I wouldn't sell or liquidate
a business just to spend thou-
sands to do it again," he said in
a prepared statement.
Pantelis must liquidate the

business as part of a settlement
agreement with his wife during
on-going divorce proceedings
and says he'll do so by the
year's end if no one purchases it.
"For investors with good
capital backing to make needed
improvements, this is a great
business opportunity," he said.
The Waterfront Market has
been in business for more than
20 years and serves as a whole-
saler to as many as 50 restau-
rants around Key West. Among
them, patrons say they are
struggling to find a wholesaler
with the quality of service and

Drivers filtering in and out of
Key West will discover a less
bumpy ride when cruising North

"I want to congratulate the
city for a very steady response to

Fish-license costs
increase on Monday

A new fee schedule for recre-
ational fishing licenses issued by
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission goes
into effect Monday.
The Florida resident fee for a
one-year saltwater fishing license
was $13.50 and goes to $17. A
five-year license was $61; it will
now be $79.
A three-day saltwater fishing
license for a non-resident was
$6.50; it will now. be $17. A
seven-day license was $16.50; it
will now be $30. And an annual
non-resident license was $31.50;
it goes to $47.
The increased revenue,
expected to total $10 million
annually within four years, will
not create new programs but will
offset a predicted $12.5 million
deficit by 2010, said Sandra
Wilson, director of finance and
budget at FWC.
Recreational licenses may be
purchased online at www.fwc

goods retailers and at tax collec-
tors' offices.

The city was able to take
advantage of a general services
contract with Charlie Toppino
and Sons and subcontractor
Community Asphalt, Flowers
said, giving them the task of
paving the street that caused the 9
a.m. closure Friday. Construction
finished in the afternoon.
The entire reconstruction proj-
ect, however, will commence in
2010 or 2011. That project is
intended to revamp the whole
area for drivers.
Changes are long overdue, say
city officials, including City
Commissioner Mark Rossi, who
sponsored the original emer-
gency reconstruction resolution.
The uneven promenade direct-
ly parallel to the outside lane is
another area getting some much
needed attention. According to
Flowers, the repaving of that
sidewalk should kick off around
the beginning of December.
The sidewalk typically teems
with bicyclists, joggers and the
occasional rollerblader, many of
whom complain of the waterfront
walkway's shoddy condition.
"That's a very difficult operation
to pave, for fear that the sidewalk
will give way," Flowers explained,
stressing the heavy weight of the
paving machines. "It's going to be a
slow, meticulous job."
Flowers predicts that the com-
mission will review the proposal
next week and bid the project out
the following week.
Toghiani said he was
impressed with the city's quick
action, given the notice to pro-
ceed was sent from the FDOT to
the city Sept. 14.
He said $143,375 has been
earmarked for that road repaving
and $583,375 was set aside to
rebuild the promenade. Flowers
said he's confident the city won't
have to pay that much for either
of those projects, emphasizing
that the figures are only rough
sums of construction materials
- and maintenance.
"Nothing is engraved in con-
crete," he said.

Arcade slots hauled out of county

manager claims
state license

Lady Luck was nowhere in
sight for three Key West busi-
nesses this week as their arcade
slot machines were removed and
shipped out of Monroe County,
following a July cease and desist
order from the State Attorney's
Magnolia's Caf6 at 722 Duval
St., and Last Key Bingo have
officially closed. Stick & Stein
Sports Rock Caf6 at 1126 North
Roosevelt Blvd. remains open
sans the machines.
This week, all 52 machines in
Magnolia's Caf6 were removed
and shipped up to a business in
Deerfield Beach, where they are
now operating, said manager Jim
McAlhany. In order to be desig-
nated an "arcade amusement cen-
ter" there must be "at least 50
coin operated amusement
games," according to Florida
McAlhany declined to name
the Deerfield business.
He did say, however that he
feels the State Attorney's Office
doesn't fully comprehend the
Florida Statute that mandates
each machine be coin-fed and
customers are not permitted to
win money, rather a coupon or
prize valued at a retail price that
does not exceed $ .75 per game.
He says the machines met all
statute requirements and that
they're operated in other counties

in the state. On each machine was
a small notice that reads, "No
cash will ever be awarded."
"I got my license from the
state of Florida to operate,"
McAlhany said. The State
Attorney's Office "cannot
explain why they're not legal."
"If I were a gambling man,"
State Attorney Spokesman
Matthew Helmerich said. "I'd put
my money on the State
Attorney's interpretation of this
gaming statute rather than that of
somebody making money on slot
McAlhany says he's lost eight
employees, with the temporary
closing of the business space. Not

Attorney, Diane Covan
Why Covan for Utility Board?
Keys Energy Services wants to help our world and island by "Going Green"
without additional expense to its customers. They need and deserve lots of help to
achieve that important goal. It won't be easy but it can be done!
COVAN has the experience, creativity, commitment, desire and intelligence
to help make it happen and happen soon. She believes that alternative energy sources
will reduce power costs making the Keys more affordable and that we've got nothing
to lose by trying (and a lot to lose if we don't).

Surgical center

wins on appeal

HMA lawyers
face deadline
to stop work

A red tag was lifted for a pro-
posed ambulatory surgical center
to go up in Key West and now
Health Management Associates,
Inc., who originally appealed the
building permits in mid-August,
signaled they will likely appeal
the project once again, this time
to the circuit court.
The City Commission, acting
as the Board of Adjustments,
denied the appeal earlier this
month, saying that HMA, which
operates Lower Keys Medical
Center, did not have sufficient
reasons to hinder the proposed
medical center, because the
building department properly
examined the building's require-
ments, finding them adequate.-
HMA has 30 days to appeal
the BOA's Sept. 6 decision to the
circuit court, which means they
need to submit the paperwork by
the end of the week.
City Commissioner Bill Verge
motioned to deny the appeal and
his colleagues followed suit, vot-
ing it down.
According to documents
obtained by the Keynoter, the
building department and plan-
ning department had reviewed
and approved all plans, from
American Disabilities Act

requirements to adequate park-
ing, with 29 spaces.
According to Verge, HMA
attorneys attempted to broaden
the argument to one regarding
business and how the center
would affect the Stock Island
"Everybody wants to bring in
their emotional arguments," he
The company that's proposing
that center, Ambulatory Surgical
Centers of America, is represented
by local attorney Ginny Stones.
According to Stones, the joint
venture is being spearheaded by
seven physicians, spanning from
Key West to Marathon, including
Dr. Michael Klitenick and Dr.
Paul Maurer.
The city permit was originally
granted Aug. 1. for the project to
be constructed at 931 Toppino
Dr., a location that used to house
Planet Gymnastics.
Timothy Elliot, one attorney
representing HMA, wrote a letter
to the city clerk's office claiming
that LKMC has "substantial
interest" in the proposed 5,906
square-foot center, seeing as the
hospital is the only one in the
area and would likely take
patients from the potential clinic.
Architect Wayne B. Richard,
hired to review the plans, wrote a
report claiming inadequacies like
"the floor does not include a Pre-
Op Holding area" and that stretch-
ers might not fit through the front

Vacation home

zoning passed

on 3-2 vote

Critics worry
changes will
deter RVers

The Monroe County
Planning Commission barely
passed a controversial change
in zoning Wednesday that crit-
ics say could make RV spaces
harder to come by for Keys
"If we pass this today,"
warned Planning Com-
missioner Sherry Popham, "we
are, in my mind, closing the
door to RVs."
Popham and fellow
Commissioner Randy Wall
voted against an ordinance that
would create a "seasonal resi-
dential unit" zone of 11 RV
parks in the Keys, giving those
parks the flexibility to allow
individual residents to add
porches are other permanent
structures to their vehicles, a
move that could make vacant
spaces for motor homes hard to
come by.
"This give us a tool to bring
our owners into compliance,"
said Manny Lopez, president
of Calusa Campground Home-
owners Association, one of the
campgrounds that would be
affected by the change. It, like
seven others in the county, is
comprised of lots that have
been sold off condo-style and
belong to individual owners.
Over the years, those owners
have added porches, storage
rooms and other attachments,
turning motor homes into small
vacation homes.
"Historically, in this battle

of redeveloping a park, resi-
dents like to put Monroe
County right in the middle,"
said Growth Management
Director Andrew Trivette.
"This lets the parks make the
decision-of what they want to
do when they grow up."
Trivette says the current
zoning transient recreational
vehicle requires that any
vehicle in a park must be
moved every six months.
"We're going to allow them
to do exactly what they're
doing now," he said. "Only the
people have to move every 180
days, not the unit."
In other words, the new zon-
ing would require that people
could only stay six months at a
The Key Largo meeting
room was packed with people
who own RV lots.
"We're your best commodi-
ty," said Joe Viardo, vice pres-
ident of the Calusa Camp-
ground Homeowners Associa-
tion. "We spend all our money
here on the weekends. Monday
when you wake up it's your
Keys again. We're gone and
you can spend the money you
made from us."
Planning Commission
Chairman Jim Cameron said
his first thought, when he read
the proposal, "was that we're
trying to put up a sign that RVs
are not welcome. -But now I
think individual owners and
park owners ought to be able to
improve their lots."
The proposal must still be
approved by the County
Commission and the state
Department of Community
Affairs before it becomes law.

FIU visits Crane Point

Historic home
sparks interest
for partnership

Several Florida Inter-
national University officials
visited Crane Point Hammock
in Marathon last weekend to
begin talks of a possible part-
nership between the two.
Crane Point Executive
Director Keith Douglass
played host to an associate
dean at the FIU School of
Architecture & The Arts and
the director of the School of
Music, among others, giving
the group a guided tour of their
63-acre property and all it has
to offer.
Several of them even
camped out at the Hammock
over the weekend and on
Saturday the group toured
Pigeon Key, another potential
site for FIU to host events.
Douglass said the results of
the weekend were "very posi-
tive" and that he was even

invited to meet with the dean
of the School of Architecture
& The Arts in mid-October.
The centerpiece of their
partnership would be the
restoration of the Crane
House, built there in 1953 by
Mr. And Mrs. Francis C.
Crane. It is in disrepair now,
but the hope is for FIU to offer
the services of their architec-
ture school's staff and students
in helping to refurbish the his-
torical home.
"There's a number of things
they can do. They have experts
on their faculties and we could
use that to make sure all the
research is done that needs to
be done," Douglass explained.
"For us to be paying for that
expense could be costly and
getting it for virtually nothing
would be to our advantage."
For FIU, Crane Point would
represent an opportunity to
provide students with a hands-
on educational experience.
"They realize this is a mutu-
ally beneficial opportunity.
Sometimes you have to get the
students and faculty out of the

classroom," Douglass said,
noting the school would be
providing a wealth of experi-
He said the school could
potentially be assisting Crane
Point with everything from
construction needs to land-
scape architecture, and would
even be an asset in procuring
grant money to fund the proj-
"They have a tremendous
ability to assist in finding dol-
lars," Douglass said.
Upon completion down the
line, Douglass expects the
home to be not only historical-
ly restored, but functional as
"When the Crane's built it,
[they] had it designed and dec-
orated so that it would be an
extraordinary facility and
stand the test of time," he said.
And he would also like
those responsible for seeing
the project through to continue
utilizing the home in the
"It would be neat to have
the same university that helped
restore it, use it," Douglass

"If you have,
or even think
you have, a
problem, come
see us."

Commission delays vote

Transfer of
permits triggers
more controversy

The Monroe County Planning
Commission decided Wednes-
day to hold off approving a pro-
posed transfer ordinance until its
-Marathon meeting to allowpeo-
ple more opportunity to com-
The commission is looking at
a proposal that gives landowners
incentives not to redevelop
mobile home parks.
"If you pass this it will be
another useless ordinance," said
Marathon park owner John
Wolf, who is also an attorney.

"Whether you pass it or not, it
will be another ordinance that
sits there and is not used because
the economics don't work."
As written, the ordinance
would provide a mechanism for
owners to transfer market rate
building permits off mobile
home park property to be used
elsewhere. In return, the parks
would theoretically be retained
as affordable.
"Philosophically, I have a
problem with this whole con-
cept," said Commissioner
Sherry Popham. "The alterna-
tives that keep coming forth
seem to all be an effort to build
our way out of the affordable
housing crisis."
She added that she would like
to see restrictions included that

assure the market rate permits
don't get transferred to the work-
ing waterfront.
Commission Chairman Jim
Cameron said adding restrictions
of any kind would make the vol-
untary incentive less attractive to
Popham noted that the pro-
posal does not limit where in the
county the permits are trans-
ferred. However, a county ordi-
nance passed in 2000 clearly
states that building rights must
be transferred within the same
The ordinance will be on-the
agenda at the Oct.10 Planning

Babich was removed from
the board by County
Commissioner Dixie Spehar in

At the same time, Spehar
nominated Jay Marzella to

approved the change unani-
According to TDC policy,
board members must live in the
district they represent. Babich
was initially appointed to repre-
sent District 1 in 2000, where he
lived and owns several hotels.
However, he moved into District
2 more than a year ago.
The sudden dismissal of
Babich, coupled with an
appointment of a Marathon busi-
ness owner to represent the
Islamorada district brought the
entire policy under fire earlier
this month. County Mayor
Mario Di Gennaro appointed
Islamorada resident Jim Rhyne
to the board. Rhyne owns a hotel

in Marathon.
"On Tuesday, Sept. 18, you
called me to let me know you
would be putting an add-on to
the County Commission meet-
ing," Babich wrote in an e-mail
to Spehar, "to put me back on
the TDC board. I informed you
that I would be happy to serve
on the TDC board.
"You informed me you would
be calling Jay Marzella to let
him know you were putting me
back on the TDC board," he con-
tinued in the message.
At the Sept. '19 commission
meeting, however, Spehar did
not suggest removing Marzella
and putting Babich back on the
board. Instead, she asked her fel-
low commissioners to consider
changing the TDC policy so that
appointees would represent the
region in which their businesses
are located.
"Right now the board is set;
the appointments have been
made" Di Gennaro told the
Keynoter after Babich copied
his message to all of the county
commissioners. "Next time
something comes up, [Babich]
may be appointed."
Babich and Spehar did not
return calls for comment.

DNA nabs suspect
3 years after rape

In 2004, a tourist was sexual-
ly assaulted while on vacation in
Key West.
This month, Key West
Detective Matt Haley, with
agents from the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement,
arrested John Stocker,-54, for that
crime based on a DNA match
found during a routine check of
the Combined DNA Index
System national database.
On July 24, 2004, Key West
officers responded to Lower
Keys Medical Center in refer-
ence to a sexual battery. The vic-
tim, a white woman in her mid-
20s, told officers she was walk-
ing home around 4:30 a.m. when
a black man riding a bike stopped
her, directed her to a secluded
area and assaulted her.
A sexual assault kit and exam-
ination were done on the victim
and submitted to the FDLE
Crime Lab for analysis.
This past Aug. 16, Haley was
contacted by a supervisor at the'
state crime lab in reference to a
DNA match. Apparently, during
a routine check of the state's

Database, a match occurred with

Early votes shape outcome

The candidates

Elections head
predicting a
40% turnout

If predictions prove true, nearly
half the voters in Key West's city
election Tuesday will have cast
their ballots before election day.
As of Tuesday, 16 percent of
all registered voters will have hit
the polls early, with 495 early
voting ballots turned in and 1,545
absentee ballots of the 2,029
requested already returned.
Supervisor of Elections Harry
Sawyer said that by 7 a.m. on
election day, he predicts 20 per-
cent of Key West's registered vot-
ers will have already cast their
ballots. And he's looking for a 40
percent turnout of the city's
12,439 registered voters.
Sawyer's tips for avoiding
long lines at the polls: go to your
precinct from 9 a.m. to noon, or 2
p.m. to 5 p.m. to avoid those stop-
ping in before or after work, or
the lunch crowd.
Sawyer admits to worrying
about the possibility of thunder-
"I cannot tell you how much
the weather plays as an important
factor during an election," he said.
"It can really depress turn out."
According to Weather

Underground, there is a 40 per-
cent chance of precipitation, with
a chance of thunderstorms.
Three city commission seats,
three utility board seats and the
Key West mayoral seat will either
retain their incumbents, with
familiar faces, or some new faces
from those who promised to
make improvements.
In some ways, the mayoral
race mirrors the previous one two
years ago, as incumbent Morgan
McPherson takes on former
Mayor Jimmy Weekley.
McPherson won by a crucial 27
ballots in that matchup.
Many says the mayoral race
has served as personification of
what makes Key West, Key West:
its unique character.
Sloan Bashinsky, a writer and
self-proclaimed minister, has
made national news for what
some label quirky proposals to
accentuate the city's rich culture,
calling for a pirate theme to rein-
vigorate tourism.
Semi-retired Marine repair-
man George Claing, 79, added an
extra element of humor, evident
from audiences' chuckles during
public forums after quick-witted
Incumbent McPherson's slo-
gan "Keep moving forward"
sums up his campaign theme that
two years simply isn't enough
time to accomplish all his goals

as mayor. He's asking voters for
another term.
Business owner Rolland
Montefalcon, soft spoken and the
youngest of the six candidates at
32, has revealed extension knowl-
edge of business during forums
and interviews (he has a Masters
in Business Administration).
Social Psychologist Carie
Noda demonstrates an intense
passion for revamping disaster
response measures on the island,
in the event of another devastat-
ing hurricane. She shows a will-
ingness to challenge opponents
and pride for her Cuban heritage.
Former mayor and owner of
Fausto's Food Palace Jimmy
Weekley, 59, has a resume that
proves a zealous commitment to
city service, as 20 year city com-
missioner and former mayor.
Officials and voters alike
agree the city commission and
utility board races are equally
captivating. Though when asked
to give predictions of the elec-
tions outcome, everyone is tight-
lipped, leaving it all up to Oct. 2.
Early voting finishes
Saturday at the Supervisor of
Elections Office from 8:30 a.m.
to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, the polls
open 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.
The Key West Department
of Transportation is offering vot-
ers who'display identification and

As. legislators started closing
one of the state budget's largest
holes ever, they were preoccu-
pied Thursday with a multi-bil-
lion dollar issue that wasn't even
on the agenda: property taxes.
House and Senate leaders are
at a standoff over whether and
how to fix three words in the bal-
lot language of the property tax
amendment that caused a judge
this week to throw it off the Jan.
29 ballot.
House Speaker Marco Rubio
and Gov. Charlie Crist want to
resolve the matter during next
week's special session, but the
Senate won't budge. Senate lead-
ers blindsided the House earlier
this week when they announced
they would appeal the court rul-
ing rather than pursue a fix.
"'There's no guarantee the
appeal process is going to deliver
us the relief people are going to
expect,"' Rubio said Thursday in
a public television interview,
adding it could be February
before the court rules.

Kissimmee Republican and spon-
sor of one of the property-tax
plans that passed in June, said
that while the House is "'frustrat-
ed,"' the Senate is too "laid back"
over the issue.
Rubio and Crist's advisors are
trying to entice the Senate into
voting on a way to improve the
ballot language that the judge
found "misleading."
Crist and Rubio have prom-
ised huge tax savings that have
yet to be delivered. The Senate,

which had to be dragged into
approving the two-phase proper-
ty-tax plan in June, never boasted
about big savings because its
members were concerned about
the effects of cuts on local-gov-
ernment services.
Now that the Leon County
Circuit Court ruling has left the
Legislature with what the Senate
originally sought, Senate
President Ken Pruitt seems deter-
mined to let the issue play out in
court and has all but ruled out
doing anything for the special
session starting Wednesday.

packed with discounts and spe-
cial offers from Marathon area
The book, put together by the

Greater Marathon Chamber of
Commerce, will cost $10 for vis-

"This is something that the
chamber is doing for our mem-
bers," said Daniel Samess, execu-
tive director of the chamber. "It's
a way to further promote busi-
nesses in the Marathon area."
Thirty businesses are featured
for free in the coupon books,
which should be available at the
chamber's office, 12222
Overseas Highway, by early

October. The coupons offer $200
to $400 in savings, Samess said.
"This is not a completely
touristy thing," Samess said.
"This is something/a local would
consider purchasing because it's
going to save them at local
restaurants and whatnot."
Collins Aviation is one of the
featured businesses. Owner Carol

"It's kind of a business-to-

good to do around Marathon,"
Collins said. "It's a good way to
let people know about your serv-
ices and give them a little bit of a
discount in the process."
Samess said he limited it to 30

nearly 400 members because
he didn't want the book to be so

Samess said the UPS Store

isn't the point.
"We're not trying to make

Bill Sellers once owned all
the Burger Kings in the
Keys and another in
Florida City.
"Theirs was the only Burger
King I've ever seen with really
classy artwork," entertainer
Gordon Ross says.
The Sellers were not known
for their burgers, though. They
were known for their generosity,
their affection for each other,
their love of their new home-
town Key West and their joy in
Last Sunday moving, Sue
sent out an elegantly simple e-
mail to their many friends, let-

brief struggle with pancreatic
cancer was over.
"My darling Bill went to
sleep this morning," she wrote.
They had created a comfort-
able life for themselves that they
shared openly through philan-
thropy and through personal
interest in their community.
"You can't just recall Bill,"
Ross says. "It was Bill and Sue
they were inseparable. What I
remember most is their commit-
ment to the community. Artistic,
musical theatrical they
seemed to find their niche in
every one of those things."
They supported all the arts in
Key West and throughout the
Keys as well. Their enthusiasm
and sense of purpose in creating
a lively cultural environment

Pausing to sigh, she added,
"Bill was a good businessman
and made himself available to us
[the Red Barn troupe]. We were
actors, not business people, and
he was free with his advice as
well as his money. He had a

"There wouldn't have been

He mentioned once that "per-

deer and other wildlife. Stepping
through the door, bold yellow
walls and the avalanche of art,
much of it Key West in origin
but also some from national and
historic artists, represent the cou-

Bill laid down on a hospital
bed that he called his day-
lounger last Sunday and died
"peacefully at home with Sue by
his side.
Bill's sparkling wit and
humor never failed and he had a
good time talking with his many
friends in the last weeks. "He
really had a lot of wonderful
friends," Sue said.
"That twinkle and that smile
I can't picture it being any-
thing but that,"'McDonald says.
A memorial service in Key
West will be announced in the
new year.

Muddy course
takes its toll on
Dolphin golfers

The Marathon High School
golf team played a bit of a slop-
py match on an even sloppier
course Thursday against Miami
Country Day in Miami.
The Dolphins were coming
off two strong performances, but
coach Dean Carrigan said a
match-heavy schedule and a lack
of practice time finally began to
affect the team's play.
The Dolphins (8-7) fell, 158-
184, to Country Day's undefeat-
ed Spartans (11-0).
Carrigan took full responsi-
bility for the Dolphins' perform-
ance Thursday after he made
what turned out to be an ill-
advised lineup change.

"I'm going to take the blame
on this one," he said. "We
haven't been .ble to practice and

Marathon has played a num-
ber of matches recently, but all
the rain of late cut into what little
practice time was available for
the team in between.
Thursday was not much dif-
ferent. Carrigan said the course
was in bad shape and he thought
the match would be cancelled.
"We went up there and played
a mud bath; [the course] wasn't
in any shape to play a match," he
said. "The kids were having trou-
ble even finding golf balls."
Senior Jay Hegland led the
Dolphins with a 40, though it
was far from his best round.
Carrigan said he bogeyed two of
his first four holes and double-

The third time could be the
charm Friday as Island
Christian's boys soccer Eagles
head to Princeton Christian.
The Eagles have lost just
two matches during this 6-2
season, and both were to
Princeton's Panthers.
But on Friday, ICS gets a
rare third regular-season shot
at their longtime rivals.
"They had scheduled

coach Robert Lucas. "We had

Lucas was encouraged by
the Eagles' efforts in a 3-1
loss to Princeton on Sept. 21.
"If we play [Friday] like we
played the last game, we've

Island Christian and
Princeton were tied at 1-1
with 10 minutes left in the
match. The Panthers tallied
the go-ahead score, then got
another goal when the Eagles
pushed the defense up in a bid
for a tying score.

Lady Fins struggle in loss

Volleyball team
falls to Westwood
Christian in three
' rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The volleyball Lady
Dolphins need to find a way
to avoid getting beat, says the
Marathon High School coach.
"We just have to find a
rhythm," coach Kevin
Freeman said after the
Dolphins were swept in a
Tuesday road match at
Westwood Christian.
"We know we can play bet-
ter; we're better than what
we've shown," he said.
The host Lady Warriors
handled the Dolphins by tak-
ing three straight games, 25-

21, 25-23, 25-16.
Freeman said the team
played well against a solid
Warriors team in the first two
games before losing momen-
tum in the third.
He said the Dolphins were
only three or four points back
most times during the first
two games, but could not
muster a comeback.
"If we would have won
those points maybe it would
have turned around," Freeman
The Dolphins fell to 2-6 in
what. Freeman said has
become a frustrating season
for the girls.
While the team plays well
at times, he said, mental mis-
takes at key moments have
cost the team.

The Dolphins' year-long
struggle with serving miscues
continued Tuesday against
Westwood, a team they have
not lost to in quite some time.
"We have to be:ready to
win. I'm not dissatisfied with
the way we're playing -
we're sticking together as a
team but they're not ready
to take the next step,"
Freeman said.
Senior Alexis Culver led
the Dolphins with nine kills,
while Jessica Brier had five
and Shelby Kuck and'Morgan
Longstreth each had two.
Juniors Sarah Melia and
Ashley Hooper each had three
aces in the match.
Marathon next play in a
Thursday match at Palmer
Trinity. The varsity plays
about 5:30 p.m., following the
junior-varsity game at 4 p.m.

The team was slowed by ill-
ness, with several players not up
to full strength.
A day later, the team "did
everything we didn't do against
Gulliver," Thiery said. "They
played with high energy and
took advantage of every oppor-
tunity. They played they we
expect them to play."
Ciara Sanchez, team captain
and libero (defensive specialist)
"is still out there rolling on the

floor [to make digs] and making
good passes," Thiery said.
Against Carroll, Coral Shores
(6-8) was able to put two solid
players at the net in Hannah
Padgett (six blocks) and Chelsea
"Hannah was crushing them,
and with Chelsea having a good
game, it was a mismatch against
certain rotations," Thiery said.
"Our strength is that we're pret-
ty strong in all six positions but
we need everybody to show up."
Results from a Friday match

A 14.01-pound bonefish taken in August by David Kravit, 15, of Boca Raton ranks among th
biggest on record for his age group. The IGFA has acknowledged the catch but not as a
official record.

Potential record swims awa

Senior Staff Writer

A 14-pound bonefish that
could have contended for a
world record is still swimming
off Islamorada.
The 14-pound, 1-ounce bone-
fish was released after being
caught by David Kravit, 15, of
Boca Raton on an Aug. 10 trip
with Islamorada captain George
Wood on the "Just Reel."
It later was learned the bone-
fish may have tied the standing
Boys Juniors record.
The International Game Fish
Association has acknowledged
the catch with an honorary cita-
tion for Kravit, but will not rec-
ognize a record since the fish

was not logged at an approved
weigh station.
"We want to keep as many
fish alive as possible so some-
times we have to make a difficult
decision," said Wood, a local
guide for more than three
"If it had been a half-pound or
pound [over the record], that's
one thing. But it's tough to make
that decision when it's an ounce
or two."
The teenager fishes regularly
with his father. "He's been out
there about 25 days a year since
he was 6, so he's gotten pretty
good at it," Wood said.
The bonefish hit "a crab about
the size of a half-dollar" and was
boated after an 18-minute fight.
"We didn't pole after it,"

Wood said. "We were right in
good body of fish that were mu
ding. We just sat on the corn
[of the flat] while his dad w
trying to hook another one."
Wood said Kravit's big bon
fish highlighted a period

Key West has yet
to win a game
through play
Keynoter Contributor

With the approach of
October, the prep volleyball
season winds down too quick-
ly for a team like Key West
High School.
The Lady Conchs have yet
to taste victory, other than by
"I feel like a win is right
around the corner," said coach
Jessy Hulme, whose Conchs
play at Mater Academy at 5
p.m. Tuesday before returning
home for a 5:30 p.m. Thursday
home game against local rival
Coral Shores at the Bobby
Menendez Gym.
Key West is coming off a
25-20, 25-19, 25-22 loss Sept.
25 at Reagan High School in
"The girls did OK," Hulme
said, "but I was kind of disap-
pointed because Reagan is a
beatable team."
Reagan High school opened
in 2005, and will host the
District 16-4A Tournament
beginning Oct. 22. Key West
plays in 16-4A.
The defeat dropped the
Conchs to 2-13, both victories
coming on forfeits when

Edison failed to appear in Key
West for a doubleheader two
weeks ago.
On the floor, the Conchs
have only won two games in
the 13 matches.
Hulme was impressed
Tuesday with junior Victoria
Brisson, who continued to be
a blocking force at-the net.
Reserve players Amy Coly
and Jewel Worden did well
coming off the bench. "Amy
played very well and Jewel
did a nice job in the front
row," the coach said.
In her first year at Key
West, the 25-year-old Hulme
has become -sort of a volley-
ball professor. Wednesday, she
had the team come to her
classroom at Horace O'Bryant
Middle School.
"We looked at videos of
last week's tournament and at
pictures from the Reagan
game," she said. "The girls
were able to see where they
were standing [during rallies]
and if they were in the right
Armed with this new
knowledge, the Conchs look
forward to the rest of the reg-
ular season and to the District
16-4A Tournament.
"If we put everything
together there are teams we
can beat when it counts the
most," Hulme said.
