A spate 6f recent Florida Keys

horrific murder of a child in 1976

process easier, he said.
Even after a collapsed real
estate market left Cay Clubs in
financial straits this summer, Key
Hospitality opted to continue
with the merger.
But now, less than a month
away from the deadline to merge,
the investment firm balked.
"The decision to terminate
a as based on the deterioration of
Ca\ Clubs' market in Florida, the
liquidmr, problems it is facing and
the recent unavailability of jumbo
mortgages to potential condo-
hotel bu ers," .according to the.
filing.
Ca\ Clubs' rapid expansion
has left the company cash-poor
and struggling to make leaseback
and loan payments, according to
SEC documents filed in summer.
In defending his company
from fraud allegations made in a
ci il suit in August, Cay Clubs
Chief E.ecutive Officer Dave
Clark said last month that the
company\ would continue its
aggressl; e business plan.
"Our position of maintaining
the property and accelerating
operations during this turbulent
economic time has proven to be


strategically sound as occupancy
and average daily rates continues
to rise," he said in a press release.
Recent news about Cay Clubs
has painted a grim picture of the
company's finances.
It has until the end of the
year to pay $74 million in loans,
according to SEC filings.
+ In mid-September, the com-
pany laid off a number of
employees, said Jeff Pinkus, Cay
Clubs' former, project manager
for workforce housing. The lay-
offs were the second such round
this year.
+ The purchase of Walker's
Cay, a resort in the Bahamas,
recently fell through.
In the Keys, a group of 23
investor-owners in Marathon's
Sombrero Cay Club sued claim-
ing they were defrauded by Cay
Clubs and related companies.
Cay Clubs denied wrongdoing.
+ In September, the Singh Co.
took back management control of
three Marathon resorts from Cay
Clubs.
+ Cay Clubs shut down five
restaurants it owns or manages
with no reopening scheduled.
The company has .also
received criticism for abruptly
ending the popular Billfish
Xtreme Release League fishing


tournament Clark had bought the
rights to.
Representatives from Key
Hospitality did not return calls
seeking comment.
Where exactly is Cay Clubs in
Monroe County?
The brand extends to full
ownership of Bayside in Key
Largo; minority ownership of
Indigo Reef and Tranquility Bay,
both in Marathon; management
of Sombrero in Marathon; and
land in Tavernier Key Largo and
Marathon.
The company also claims to
own more than 1,100 boat slips
and operate the associated mari-
nas. But that claim came under.
fire during the Sombrero suit.
The company principals also
own a series of other companies,
many under the name Cristal
Clear. This brand includes the
aviation service company at the
Marathon airport and once
included a small fleet of jets. that
some Cay Clubs investors were
promised access to.
Cay Clubs owners also set up
a boat rental business, a rum and
vodka venture and a new mining
venture that aims to make money
while cleaning up abandoned
coal mines.

ogy budget, which was proposed
at just over $5.6 million and
approved at just over $4.5 mil-
lion.
The $1 million cut slashed
the budget by 19 percent, bring-
ing it under the 2006-07 technol-
ogy budget of about $4.8 mil-
lion.
Director of Instructional
Technology Ken St. James said
the higher budget included
slightly more than $1 million for
a four-year lease for about 2,700
new student laptops to be stored
in carts and shared between
classrooms.
The approved. budget pro-
vides $600,000 for the laptops,
cutting the number that can be
leased to about 1,250 units.
Although it's about half of
what was requested, St. James
said "it still is a good number of
computers, and we're really
excited about that."
He said the district refreshes
all of its computer workstations
every three to five years.
Teacher workstations were
replaced about a year and a half
ago, but student workstations are
in their fifth year, making some
of them too old to run certain
school software programs
already in use.
St. James said the laptops are
compatible with newer software,
and also allow students to use a
"more mobile technology" that
provides them with "more 21st
Century" skills.
The school technology fund,
which allows schools to pur-
chase items that meet their indi-
vidual needs, was cut by about
48 percent, from $420,000 in
2006-07 to $220,000 in 2007-
08.
Schools will now receive $26
per student to spend on technol-
ogy instead of the $45 per stu--
dent they received last year.
According to St. James, rip-
ple effects from the technology
budget cut will extend to:
The exceptional-student
education department, which
requested $119,883 for new cur-
riculum software, laptops for
diagnosticians, and hardware
and software for students. Only
$80,883 of that was approved.
Video productions. About
$52,000 for the programs was
cut entirely from the technology
budget.


Music program
Trouble for music programs
comes in the form of a 70 per-
cent cut in the district's equip-
ment budget, down from
$562,046 in 2006-07 to
$166,644 this year.
Because of the cut, band and
music programs will have less
funding for new instruments.
Coral Shores High School
Band Director Robert Sax said
his new-instrument budget was
cut by about 40 percent this year,
making it impossible to pur-
chase large instruments that are
unaffordable for students.
Sax said the new-instrument

technology
fund was cut

percent, from

2007-08.


budget was cut from $30,000 to
$20,000 countywide, and
because of the method of distri-
bution, the new-instrument
budget at Coral Shores was cut
from about $5,000 to about
$2,500.
He said a new policy that
doesn't allow his budget to roll
over for more than one year also
makes it difficult to purchase the
large instruments, some of
which can cost up to $13,000.
"In the past when I was get-
ting nearly $5,000 a year, I could
combine two years' budgets and
buy an instrument." Sax said.
"My current budget has been cut
to $2,500 a year. I couldn't do
that in five years."
Sax said despite the cut, he's
confident the program will sur-
vive.
"I know that all the budgets
got cut," Sax said. "This is kind
of across the board, we just took
a piece of it. These types of
things tend to correct themselves
over the years."

Union, district


sign contract


It includes
3 percent raises,
insurance help
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County School
District and the United
Teachers of Monroereached
agreement Tuesday and signed
a contract that will carry teach-
ers and other district employ-
ees through the 2007-08 school
year.
Union members can look
forward to a cost-of-living
raise of at lease 3 percent plus
so-called step raises that are
based upon a teacher's tenure
and education.
"Considering the Legis-
lature is meeting as we speak,
this is a good result," union
President Leon Fowler said. "It
seems the Legislature keeps
throwing_ new stuff at us and
we have to respond."
The Legislature is in the
midst of its third special ses-
sion this year, seeking to lop
$1 billion off spending because
of a statewide economic slow-
down. So far, there are no indi-
cations that education will be
impacted by any proposed cut-
backs.
The cost-of-living increase
likely has teachers breathing a
sigh of relief after a consultant
to the School Board suggested
no raises this year.
During the Sept. 25 School
Board meeting, consultant
Management Advisory Group


from Albany, N.Y., recom-
mended keeping salaries flat
for the coming year.
Management Advisory
Group President Carolyn Long
told the board the no-raise rec-
ommendation included consid-
eration for the high cost of liv-
ing in Key West, but said hous-
ing costs were taken out of the
equation "because it skews it
so much."
The School Board contract-
ed with the firm to see if local
pay scales were on a par with
other counties and help unravel
the problem of supplemental
pay in the district.
In recent years, supplemen-
tals have come under fire and
district officials have been
looking for a way to change the
pay system without unfairly
impacting those who have
relied on the extra pay for
years.
Fowler said the cost-of-liv-
ing increase keeps Monroe
County teachers at the top of
the salary scale compared to
teachers statewide. The union
and district agree competitive
pay is crucial to slow what has
been double-digit attrition in
recent years.
The raise is retroactive to
July 1.
The contract also has the
district paying a share of
employees' health insurance
premiums, which are going up.
With the new contract, the
School Board agrees to pay 79
percent of the increase in the
premiums.

Blind leading the blind

in Florida Legislature

Three blind men encounter an elephant in the jungle.
You know how that story ends.
We have a sinking feeling this may aptly describe what's
going on in Tallahassee these days as the House, Senate and
governor grope around in the thickets trying to figure out
how to address budget shortfalls and property-tax relief.
While the lawmakers are gathered in the state capitol to
wrestle with mandatory budget cuts, the governor is using
his powers of persuasion to get both House and Senate lead-
ers to find some common ground to repair a tax-relief refer-
endum rejected Sept. 24 by a Leon County judge.
But that won't be as easy as it looks.
The Senate has been leery of sweeping change in the
state's property-tax mechanism, fearful of unintended conse-
quences. As well it should.
On the House side, the leadership is gung-ho to deliver
the "largest tax-relief' package in modern times. Earlier, the
House speaker even proposed scrapping property taxes
entirely by simply increasing the state sales tax to make up
for lost revenue.
Fortunately, that rash idea died in negotiations between
the House and Senate. We say fortunately, recognizing the
irony that lawmakers are back in session because the state's
sales-tax revenues have dropped dramatically since May.
From our perspective, counting on sales tax revenue -
with its ups and downs to be the underpinning for all
state and local taxing needs is a recipe for disaster.
And trying to tweak the property tax to double homestead
exemptions or to addportability to Save Our Homes protec-
tions doesn't cure the inequities now hitting business and
second-home owners. Save Our Homes caps annual proper-
ty assessments at 3 percent.
State Rep. Jack Seiler, a Democrat from Wilton Manors,
is quoted in Friday's Miami Herald as saying that "for us to
do this right, it has to be meaningful and it has to be sim-
ple."
Too bad such common-sense advice comes from the
Democrats, who had little say-so in shaping the property-tax
overhaul that came out of the Legislature earlier this year.
Sticking to our analogy of the three blind men, perhaps it
will take the sighted holding the hands of the Big Three
players to steer them back to the right path before it's too
late.
Otherwise, the elephant in the room will leave a very big
mess for taxpayers to clean up down the road.

Time to put an end to lobster mini-season


EDITOR: /
Since our first written comments to the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission in 1991, which have been pre-
sented at multiple successive meetings since,
Reef Relief has registered its opposition to
sport lobster days in the Keys.
The hysteria and resultant destruction to
coral heads that are overturned and limits
that are violated over and over again during
the sport lobster days in the Florida Keys
should not be permitted. Despite lowering
catch limits and moving the dates to mid-
week, we still see many unnecessary impacts
to our already endangered coral reef ecosys-
tem during these days each year.
Several years ago, we recommended
establishing the lobster tag to monitor how
many.people were participating in this spe-
cial event. The results should be available by
now and action should be taken based on
those results. This could be modeled on the
success of the snook tag. The revenue from
such tags could be dedicated to additional
research and enforcement efforts.
Although in past years education and


Sponge die-off has consequences beyond sponges


EDITOR:
If a sponge dies and no one knew it exist-
ed, does it matter? Of course it does.
Each species of animal and plant con-
tributes to the interconnecting web of life that
makes up the dynamics of an ecosystem.
When even just one species is removed or.
depleted, there are cascading negative effects
on the entire ecosystem.
The vast and dense algae bloom of
Synechococcus algae has killed all the major
sponge species over much of the area of
Florida Bay: Sponges depend on the move-
ment of water through them to provide food
and oxygen and when the bloom is so dense
that it clogs their minute passageways, the
sponge dies.
I frequently collect a red algae to feed sea
uichins for a research project. The algae
bloom made it impossible to find this algae in
Florida Bay and so I moved my collection to
the shallow oceanside waters off Lower
Matecumbe Key. In early August, the algae
bloom also moved to this area, but was not
nearly as dense and did not last more than two
or three weeks.
As I was collecting algae a few days after
the bloom dissipated (it is still present on the
bay side), I noticed that all the major sponge
species were dead. The sheepswool and yel-
low were intact and looked like cleaned natu-
ral sponges, and the large loggerhead and fin-
ger sponges were there, but a dirty gray in
color and when touched, collapsed like the
skeleton of a burned-out house. A wave of my
hand and soon there was no trace that a large
sponge ever existed.
If sponges died in an area only lightly
touched by the bloom, few large sponges still
exist in the vast reaches of lower Florida Bay.


This has been recently confirmed by observa-
tions from divers.
So what can we do about these persistent
algae blooms, well, nothing.... and everything.
Algae blooms are created by nutrients, some
natural and mostly because we in some way
added these nutrients to the nearshore waters.
Inadequate treatment of sewage, excess
nitrogen and phosphate from runoff and river
deposition, road construction, removal of nat-
ural nutrient sinks (marshland and man-
groves), and nutrients from other sources,
some remote and some local, contribute to
these blooms.
What must be done is to correct the abuses
we have heaped on our ecosystem, a huge
task, but we can do it.

enforcement efforts have been stepped up
during the event, the rationale for allowing
such a concentrated frenzy to harvest lobster
on the part of inexperienced recreational
enthusiasts eludes us.
It bears saying that our lobster fishery is a
strong component of our economy and we
should do all we can to support its success.
Sport lobster days are unnecessary and con-
tradict the stewardship approach that we
anticipated would prevail with creation of
the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.

Kids understand when adults respect them


EDITOR:
On Sept. 26, more than a dozen Key
Kids Playgroup kids with their care
givers met at Publix in Key Largo for
playgroup. We read two stories, learned
an "I Love You Ritual" from Becky
Bailey's book by the same title, learned
three new words in sign language and
talked about how young people perceive
that adults in the community value
youth. Publix management and staff did
that in an amazing way.
Pharmacist George greeted us with
free first-aid kits and health information
resources. The produce manager gave us
small cups with fresh fruit. In each
department, we met friendly people.
Even the cashiers enjoyed watching our
2- to 4-year-olds unload their miniature
shopping carts brought from home and
respectfully bagged their groceries.
Children can easily perceive they mat-
ter at Publix with shopping carts that
look like cars or that have special seats
with safety belts near the parent's handle
bar. Anytime, kids can get a free cookie,
balloon and slice of cheese.
Other businesses, parents and adults
in the community can have an equal
impact on the healthy development of
the next generation by being aware of
the 40 developmental assets researched
by the Search Institute.
According to them, studies show'that


the greater the number of developmental
assets experienced by young people, the
more positive and successful their devel-
opment. The fewer the number of assets
present,-the greater the possibility youth
will engage in risky behaviors such as
drug use, unsafe sex and violence.
. The average young person surveyed in
the United States experiences only 19 of
the 40 assets. Overall, 59 percent of
young people surveyed have 20 or fewer
of the 40 assets.
In short, the majority of young people
in this country from all walks of life are
lacking in sufficient developmental
assets needed for healthy development.
Adults and youth, in big and small ways,
can help increase developmental assets
in the daily lives of young people.
After I gave my 2-year-old Natalie
her picture-based shopping list, she ran
off with her cart while I was talking with
another mom. She came right back with
a banana that was on her list.
When we got to the register to pay for
her groceries, she could barely reach to
hand in her $5. But when Natalie took
her change and receipt, she was so
proud.
We thank Publix and all the other
businesses and organizations that have
and will welcome Keys Kids Playgroup.

Public power keeps

utility close to customers


When you awoke to the sound
of your alarm clock this morning,
when you brewed your coffee and
toasted your bagel, when you
turned-on the light you're reading
this newspaper by, electricity
made it all happen.
At work and school and in our
homes, electricity is an essential
ingredient in our daily lives. And
with the growing importance of
electronic devices in our homes
and businesses, consumers are
taking more interest in their elec-
trical service than ever
before.
When we talk to
consumers about their
electric service, they
tell us they need reli-


able, reasonably priced
electricity, and when
they contact their elec-
tric company, they pre-
fer to deal with some-
one who's local, some-
one who can effect a
change and someone
they know and trust.
That's why citizens
of Key West and the
Lower Keys appreciate
that they are served by
a municipal electric
utility.
When the citizens of
the Lower Keys decid-
ed to form a municipal
(also known as public
power) utility back in
1943, they made a
wise decision. They


Lynne
.is the
executive
an
general
of Keys
Service
electric c
serving ct
from the
Mile Bride
through I


believed local ownership and con-
trol would ensure reliable power
and competitive rates for local
residents. These citizens also
believed a community-owned
electric system would be a main-
stay of community prosperity.
More than 60 years later, as we
celebrate national Public Power
Week, it turns out they were
absolutely right.
Keys Energy Services' electric
service is reliable because our
employees live and work in our
hometown. We're-committed to
keeping our system in top condi-
tion, which reduces the incidence
of outages. And if you do have a


problem with your service, we fix
it faster because we're always
right here where you need us.
Being close to our customers
also makes us good listeners.
Decisions that affect our local
utility aren't made in some corpo-
rate boardroom in some other
city. They are made in public
meetings of the Utility Board.
Our citizens have access and
input into the decision-making
process that impacts their electric
service.
After hearing the
growing interest in
green initiatives from
our customers, the
board responded by
adding a new strategic
initiative that calls on
Keys Energy staff to
"develop a plan to
S reduce atmospheric
concentrations of
greenhouse gases while
S'B considering the rate
impact on KEYS' cus-
rejeda tomers."
chief Our not-for-profit
e officer structure benefits our
d- community in two
manager ways. It allows us to
Energy offer competitive rates,
Enery and it also generates
spanye funding for essential
company services that enhance
customers the quality of life in our
Seven town. Because we're
ge south about purpose, not prof-
Key West it, our main concern is
looking for ways to
maximize our resources for the
benefit of our customers.
One way we have successfully
accomplished this is becoming a
co-owner in the Florida Municipal
Power Agency. In partnership
with other utilities across Florida,
we are able to save substantial
amounts of money on power gen-
eration and related services.
Those savings keep money in the
pockets of our customers.
By pairing the personal service
of a community-owned utility
with the resources of a statewide
organization, our customers get
the best of community power and
statewide strength.

Marina plan gets cool response


Some call it
too ambitious
for city harbor
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon City Councilman
Don Vasil's vision for the
future of Boot Key Harbor and
the City of Marathon Marina
met with mixed reviews
Tuesday when the council met
at the Marathon Garden Club.
Vasil's plan to add to the
harbor 190 boat slips capable of
accommodating yachts up to 50
feet long, as well as a dozen
retail stores, was originally pre-
sented to council by Deputy
City Manager C.J. Geotis at its
Aug. 28 regular meeting.
Council considered the pro-
posal and other marina-related
issues at the workshop but took
no action and gave no direction.
In fact, it appears the plans are
shelved for now.
Preliminary plans are for
construction to take place in
two stages, with 90 slips added
in phase one and 100 more in


the second. Each phase is esti-
mated to cost roughly $1.25
million.
Geotis told the Keynoter the
first 30 slips were proposed to
be constructed off the West
Peninsula near the marina
building and the second 60 off
the East Peninsula.
"The rest we would have had
to go out and get engineering to
look at it," he said of the
remaining 100.
According to staff calcula-
tions, the marina would be
expected to generate about $1.29
million annually. It would take
2.2 years before the city sees a
return on its investment.
Geotis told council the mari-
na is expected to break even
this fiscal year after years of
losing money. It is budgeted to
see a profit of $61,000 in the
2007-08 fiscal year.
While his fellow council
members seemed uneasy about
the breadth of the project, Vasil
reiterated 'his feeling that the
future of Marathon lies in the
harbor and the marina is the
city's most valuable asset.


"We need something to draw
people and keep them in
Marathon," Vasil said. "I feel a
world-class marina, whether we
build it all or start a portion of
it, would be in the best interest
of this community."
Councilman Pete Worthington,
who has been involved with for-
mulating the Marina Master Plan
now in place since the-late 1980s,
before Marathon was'even a city,
said he feels Boot Key Harbor has
finally become what many envi-
sioned it would be.
"It is the largest mooring
field on the East Coast of the
United States," he said. "The
vision was to try and improve
the services to the boaters and
we've done that and we're
doing that. I think we need to
give them a chance and see
what shakes out. If we can han-
dle more [slips], then maybe we
need to look in that direction."
Worthington raised ques-
tions about the amount of park-
ing currently available at the
marina and pointed out that city
land development regulations
call for one parking space per
slip in the harbor. He also said
obtaining permits for the proj-

ects would take from three to
five years.
Geotis told the Keynoter
permitting would have to go
through U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers, the state Department
of Environmental Protection
and the city, among others.
Councilman Mike Cinque
said the city would be doing
itself a disservice not to consider
future options, but said planning
staff should evaluate the harbor
before any steps are taken.
"When the number 190 got
thrown out there, it frightened
everyone that's a big num-
ber," he said.
Vice Mayor Marilyn Tempest
agreed, saying the city should be
cautious about "overdoing a


good thing."
"I think 190 [slips], right
now, is too much," she said.
Geotis also informed council
at the workshop that the city is
finalizing an agreement with a
company to perform an
Americans with Disabilities
Act inspection at the marina.
"He'll give us an idea where
we need things completed and
he'll help us with our transition
plan," Geotis said.
Council also discussed the
status of the 33rd Street boat
ramp and the possibility of the
city taking over the state-owned
ramp between The Island Fish
Co. and the former Quay proper-
ty at mile marker 54.

PIP returns Jan. 1


Last-minute
deal results
in compromise
By BEATRICE E. GARCIA
and MARC CAPUTO
bgarcia@MiamiHerald.com

The full Legislature swiftly
passed a bill Friday to revive
Florida's no-fault auto insur-
ance law, a day after a deal
seemed lost.
The full Senate voted 37-0
to approve it just after the
House cast a 105-4 vote.
The on-again off-again deal
was put back on track with the
House vote, which struck lan-
guage from the bill that limit-
ed lawyer fees.
The lawyer-fee amendment,
added unexpectedly Thursday
in a House jobs council, was a
"nonstarter" in the Senate,
said state Rep. Ellyn
Bogdanoff, who late Thursday
night filed the amendment to
repair her bill.
The no-fault law, which
requires drivers to buy person-
al injury protection called PIP,
expired Monday, leading
many to fear that more unin-
sured drivers would hit the
roads and more lawsuits
would result.
But a fix to the law wasn't
so simple because every spe-


cial interest doctors,
lawyers, hospitals, pain clinics
and health and car insurers -
wanted something different.
Nevertheless, a deal was
finally hammered out between
House and Senate negotiators,
although it was almost
scotched when Rep. Ron
Reagan, a home-insurance

Thursday.

Jan. 1.
Bogdanoff,


the Fort


Lauderdale Republican who
has spent the last four months
working on the reform bill,
said she always wanted to
limit attorneys' fees.
But to win support from the
majority of lawmakers and the
various special interest groups
that have a stake in the no-
fault system she took the pro-
vision out of the bill being
considered Thursday because
"I was told it was a nonstarter.
Legal reform was in the bill
from the beginning until two
weeks ago."
Posey said it was wrong to
make it tougher for people to
have a lawyer.
"I wanted a consumer
friendly bill," said Posey, who
contends limiting attorneys'
fees would hamper con-
sumers' ability to hire lawyers
in cases where they sue their
own insurers over claim dis-
putes, especially because
insurance companies have no
cap on what they could spend
to defend these claims.
"It would be like giving
consumers a pea-shooter and
the insurance companies an
army and telling them, 'Now
have a fair fight,' Posey said.
The situation is a little con-
fusing for those who have
.recently renewed their policies
and weren't required to pur-
chase PIP. They will have to
buy it on Jan. 1.


Pediatrician leads protest


Keys residents
rally against
insurance veto
BY KRISTEN BURNIE
kbumie@keysreporter.com

Led by a local pediatrician, a
group of Keys residents gathered
in Tavemier Thursday to protest
President Bush's veto of a bill to
expand a federal children's
health insurance program.
Protestors stood in the medi-
an of U.S. 1 outside the
Tavemier Towne shopping cen-
ter at mile marker 91 holding
signs comparing the cost of the
children's insurance-program to
the cost of the Iraq war, and
telling U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen, who represents the


Keys, to "vote yes for our kids."
The bill, which would have
spent $35 billion to expand the
State Children's Health Program
over five years, passed in
Congress, but Bush vetoed it
Wednesday.
It would have expanded
health coverage to children in
families above the poverty line
who are unable to afford private
insurance.
Bush said the bill would
encourage too many middle-
class families to drop private
insurance to enroll their children
in the government program.
With 67 out of 100 votes,
there's enough support in the
Senate to override the veto, but a
265-159 vote in the House Sept.
25 falls short of the two-thirds


majority needed for an override.
Dr. Stan Zuba of Keys
Pediatrics said he sees firsthand
the negative effects that not hav-
ing insurance has on a child's
health. He said he organized the
protest as soon as he heard about
Bush's veto.
"When he put our children's
health at risk for political pur-
poses, I just had to take a stand,"
Zuba said. "It's wrong. All the
children in our country deserve
health care."
Zuba called the bill's $35 bil-
lion price tag "a drop in the
bucket for our children," and
said he's hopeful the protest will
have an effect on lawmakers.
"If we can persuade one per-
son, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, to
change her vote to override the
veto, I'll feel like we've done
something," Zuba said.

Bodies of evidence


to be uncovered


Unidentified 6
will be exhumed
for DNA testing
By ALYSON CREAN
aerean@keynoter.com

Monroe County Sheriff's
Office Sgt. Patricia Dally
knows from experience that
DNA can solve a crime.
"We've had a couple of suc-
cessful cases," she told the
Keynoter Thursday, "back
when DNA testing started to
come into effect. Back then,
you needed a gallon of blood to
get a test, though. Now you
just need a bit of hair or bone."
The Sheriff's Office is
teaming up with the FBI, the
county Medical Examiner's
Office and the sextons of local
cemeteries to solve some very
cold cases with the help of
DNA testing.
In early November, officials
will exhume the remains of six


people whose identities remain
a mystery. Planned for exhu-
mation are:
A white man whose bones
were found off State Road 905
in Key Largo in 1983.
A black man whose head
and torso were found in Key
Colony Beach in 1987.
A black man whose
remains were found wrapped in
a sheet in Key Largo in 1988.
An infant whose remains
were buried at the Big Coppitt,
Cemetery in 1991.
A white man found in a
wooded area near Holiday Isle
in Islamorada in 1993.
+ The body of a woman
found dead on a boat near Key
West in 1999.
, "We will essentially be
assisting in opening the vaults
and the physical removal of the
remains," Key West Cemetery
Sexton Russell Brittain said.

process so that it's done quick-
ly and efficiently."
"Our role will be to collect
the actual samples," said
Michael Bates, chief forensic
investigator with the Medical
Examiner's Office.
The samples will be submit-
ted to the FBI's National DNA
Database, where they can be
compared and, ideally,
matched to that of family mem-
bers of missing persons.
One of Dally's big successes
came in 2004 when DNA sam-
ples tied a missing 15-year-old
to a body found in the Keys in
1976.
Stephanie Sempell was last
seen alive in Boca Raton in
March 1976. That December,
the skeletal remains were dis-
covered by a camper on Grassy
Key. The scattered bones held
few clues outside of a knotted
black t-shirt and some strands
of hair.
But DNA testing, especially
on remains this old, does not
do the trick alone. Dally said
the type of testing mito-
chondrial DNA testing,
extracted from the mother -
shows only half the gene
sequencing. Still, she said, it
works if family members sub-
mit a sampling.
"We would like to solve all
of them," said Dally, who has
been With the department since
1985. "Even if all we can do is
get the samples into the data-
base, we're better off than we
were."


Changes possible in

TDC appointments


Spehar pushes
for business
representation
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Monroe County Commis-
sioner Dixie Spehar said she's
not giving up on having the
rules changed so that appoint-
ments to the county's Tourist
Development Council are based
upon the location of an
appointee's business, not his or
her home.
"I hope that the business will
be the determining factor," she
told the Keynoter. "It's just log-
ical that you protect the area
where your business is."
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton said her office is writing
up a proposed ordinance that
would change the TDC's policy,
which now says board members
must represent the district in
which they live.
"We will probably end up
bringing forward an ordinance
that provides for appointments
being made on either residency
or the place of business," Hutton
said. "If the commission decides
to limit it to one or the other, it
will be easier that way to change
the language to suit them."
The issue exploded last
Month when county Mayor
Mario Di Gennaro appointed
Jim Rhyne to the TDC board.
Rhyne lives in Islamorada,
but owns a motel in Marathon.


Di Gennaro, in line with TDC
policy, appointed him to repre-
sent Islamorada.
The move left Islamorada
hoteliers unrepresented, TDC
Director Harold Wheeler
argued.
The issue got sticky when the
county commissioners looked
back at an August vote where
they removed District 1 repre-
sentative Matt Babich and
replaced him with Jay Marzella.
The reason for the change,
according to Spehar, was
because Babich's home is in
District 2. His businesses are in
District 1, which is Key West.
Marzella's home and busi-
ness are in District 2.
"This is a business represen-
tation," Marzella told the
Keynoter, "therefore, your busi-
ness needs to be in the district
you're representing. I can see it
as nothing less than a conflict of
interest that someone whose
business interest in a different
district will make decision as to
where money is being spent."
The issue has been compli-
cated by who actually makes the
appointment because the TDC
and County Commission have
different district boundaries.
Because of this, the commis-
sioner for one district may not
be the one to make the appoint-
ments for the TDC district with
the same number.
Babich didn't return calls for
comment.

Transfer law

up for more review


It comes before
planning panel
this Wednesday
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

A proposed ordinance that
would allow property owners to
transfer building rights from
one site to another was too-
important to pass after just one
hearing, according to Monroe
County Planning Commission
Chairman Jim Cameron.
That's why the mobile-home
transfer ordinance is on the
agenda a second time, this time
at the Marathon Planning
Commission meeting. It begins
at 10 a.m. Wednesday at the


Marathon Government Center
and is broadcast live on
Comcast Channel 76 and on the
county Web site.
The proposed ordinance
would allow property owners to
transfer market-rate building
rights from a park to another
site as long as the park is desig-
nated an affordable housing-
site.
It's designed to serve as an
incentive to property owners
retaining the affordability that
is inherent in mobile-home
parks.
The County Commission
enacted a moratorium on rede-
velopment of the parks to give
staffers time to come up with
the ordinance. That freeze,


which passed in July and was
made retroactive to May,
expires in mid-November.
Though the planning com-
missioners seem to agree on the
need for the ordinance, some of
its details need to be hammered
out.
Commissioner Sherry
Popham said she would prefer
the transfers be allowed only
within the same region of the
Keys, while Cameron said he
doesn't want to see any restric-
tions that could hamper the
incentives.
If approved Wednesday, the
proposed ordinance would go
before the County Commission
and then, if approved on that
level, to the state Department of
Community Affairs for final
approval.

Boot Key Bridge to be appraised


Then the city
will better know
repair costs.
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
is scheduled to meet in regular
session Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at
the Marathon Government
Center. Agenda items include:
An update from City
Manager Mike Puto on the
appraisal of Boot Key's value.
He said the appraisal would
cost roughly $20,000.
Council, in lieu of a final
decision on the future of the
Boot Key Bridge, ordered the
appraisal. It will provide the
island's three parcel owners a
better understanding of the
costs they might incur helping
fund the bridge's repair, and
also give the city an idea of its
liability in the event the council


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


g,-.


decides to pursue another
option with the bridge.
The appraisal is expected to
take between three and six
months.
A resolution approving a
professional services agree-
ment between the city and the
Middle Keys Community Land
Trust.
Puto had recommended to
council at an Aug. 30 meeting
the $50,000 contract not be
renewed, but it was reconsid-
ered after- Land Trust
Administrator Rick Casey and
several board members argued
against the decision.
Planning Director Fred
Gross said the new contract
will have a base rate of
$16,500, with itemized billing
per event at $75 per hour for
other items.
Gross said the Land Trust
would be responsible for moni-
toring compliance of deed-


restricted properties, giving out
public information, finding
apartments or tenants for those
in need and direct technical
assistance to the city on a vari-
ety of issues, among others.
Gross also said the contract
will include a provision that
Casey must provide a monthly
status report on his progress to
the planning department and
Puto and present the report to
council.
+ A resolution approving
Puto's amended contract. It was
decided at the Aug. 30 meeting
he would be retained on a six-
month contract, which can be
voided at any time without sev-
erance.
Puto said he had questions
for council regarding certain
addendums to the deal, such as
a requirement he have stated
office hours.
"It's very important we
come to terms. I have to get
direction from [council]," he
said.

Deed restrictions


in reverse?


Some say homes
now market rate
can be affordable
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Key West Community leaders
gathered at the Radisson confer-
ence room Thursday afternoon to
workshop ideas to convince
homeowners to temporarily con-
vert their market-rate units to
affordable housing.


The idea
comes with
an inevitable
decrease in
property tax
revenue for
the city.


The upshot for the owners:
Temporarily deed-restricted
homes would mean lower assess-
ments, which would mean lower
tax bills.
Landlords and renters attend-
ed the event hosted by city
Housing Coordinator Paul
Clayton and generated discussion
for the first of what will likely be
many. similar workshops to
come.
The proposed deed restric-
tions would last one to two years,
according to Mayor Morgan
McPherson, although audience
members lobbied for longer
terms.
Landlords said they would be
on board with the idea, as long as
they didn't need to deal with
bureaucracy or mountains of
paperwork. .
"The paperwork is impor-
tant," McPherson said. That
paperwork would include a lease
and income verification forms,
ensuring tenants meet the appro-
priate area median income to rent
affordably.
McPherson proposed that
with that paperwork in hand, the


Monroe County Property
Appraiser's Office reassess the
properties' values.
"Whether they're homestead-
ed or not," he said. "It benefits
them."
Speakers at the meeting also
agreed that landlords, many of
whom rent units out as,affordable
even though they are not official-
ly designated as such, should not
be penalized by having to cut
through red tape to do what
they're already doing.
The idea comes with an
inevitable decrease in property
tax revenue for the city, but with
newer high-end units coming
online, such as the Parrot Bay
condos, McPherson said the city
could make up the difference.
Peter Batty Jr. said the effect
on the budget would be incre-
mental.
"It seems like a big minimal,"
he said.
As far as convincing landlords
to get on board, Realtor Donna
Windle said it's important to let
people know they would not have
to rent their units out "way under
market rate.
"If landlords are aware they
could get a tax break," she said,
"you'll have them lining up."

Gloves still off in Key West


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

It didn't take long for Harry
Bethel to react to Charles Lee's
Wednesday afternoon hat trick
by endorsing former City
Planner Ty Symroski in the Nov.
6 runoff election for the Utility
Board of Key West.
The hat trick was Lee win-
ning a tie-breaking drawing to
Ssee who would face Symroski in
the runoff for Utility Board
Group 1.
In Tuesday's general election,
Lee and Bethel both received the
same-number of votes 1,879,
or 30.56 percent, Since no one
received 50 percent plus one
vote, that sent the top two vote-
getters to the runoff.
"I look at the vote between
Harry and I and the events lead-
ing up to it," Lee said. "It was
like it's a 12-round boxing match
and by the 12th round, we are
both standing on your feet and
it's the luck of the draw to decide
the winner."
Symroski was in the runoff
with 2,390 votes, or 38.87 per-
cent. But since Lee and Bethel
tied, City Clerk Cheri Smith


blindly pulled one of their names
out of a hat as a tiebreaker, and it
was Lee left standing on his feet.
Almost immediately after,
Bethel called Symroski, saying
he will support him in the
November race.
Thursday, Bethel wrote a let-
ter making his endorsement offi-
cial. He congratulates Symroski
for running a "gentlemanly"
campaign and offers full sup-
port.
- "With the upcoming runoff
vote for this position, I would
like to extend my full support,
my complete endorsement to
you and I will also ask my con-
stituents to give you their full
support," the letter says.
Lee said it comes as no sur-
prise.
While campaigning for the
Oct. 2 election, a letter war
ensued between Bethel and Lee,
as Lee received a letter from out-
going Group 1 board member
Robert Padron, who served in
that position for 12 years. That
letter not only endorsed Lee, but
also advised residents to vote
against Bethel.


Bethel claimed it stemmed
from a personal matter dating
back 50 years. He also fired back
with a couple of letters from
people endorsing him, one from
John Albury, local president of
the International Brotherhood of
Electrical Workers.
Wednesday morning, city
commissioners Dan Kolhage
and Bill Verge, members of the
canvassing board, recounted the
ballots cast Tuesday.
Their recount still revealed a
tie, although the total number of
votes had changed: in the first
count, Bethel and Lee were tied
at 1,879 votes; the second count
showed a tie at 1,874.
According to the Supervisor
of Elections Office, occasionally
recounts reveal different num-
bers because ballots get jammed
and provisional ballots are
counted the day after.
Provisional ballots are filled out
when people forget their voter
identification card or driver's
license.
Elections Supervisor Harry
Sawyer said the last time a vote
was-tied was, when voters were
deciding on an issue concerning
county fire trucks in 1985. He

Supervisor of Elections Harry Sawyer (left) holds a hat contain-
ing the names of Utility Board candidates Charles Lee and
Harry Bethel. City Clerk Cheri Smith (right) chose Lee, whose
family's in the background, from the hat. Lee will now run
against Ty Symroski in the runoff Nov. 6.


said the office had nothing on
record showing a tie between
candidates.
Bethel said he might take his
last month as a city commission-
er to push for a different process
for handling ties, as city code
doesn't cover what to do in the
event of a Utility Board tie.


Sawyer had to abide by
Florida statute, which requires a
coin toss or hat draw in such sit-
uations. City code mandates the
same in the event of a tie
between commission candidates.
"Many people were disen-
franchised by a piece of yellow
paper," Bethel said.

It's Round 2 for city election


The candidates
in the runoff
hit campaign trail
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Voter interest is expected to
stay unusually high for the Nov. 6
Key West runoff election given
the familiar mayoral rivalry, an
usual not too mention historic
- Utility Board election, a high-
interest City Commission race
and two referenda that will grace
the ballot.
Candidates are already explor-
ing which issues to address and
which demographic of voters to
try to win over.
In Tuesday's general election,
former Mayor Jimmy Weekley
garnered 439 more votes than he
did in the October 2005 election
against current incumbent
Morgan McPherson, scoring a 16
percent increase from two years
ago.
Four other candidates were in
the race but none of the six
gained a majority. Weekley and
McPherson were the top two
vote-getters, so they're in the
runoff.
Weekley lost Precinct 4,
Bahama Village, by 40 votes, so
he plans to press the flesh a lot in
that community.
He called McPherson a "flip-
flopper" for voting against the
Bahama Conch Community Land
Trust's referendum to allow vot-
ers decide if they want the group
to lease 6.6 acres at the Truman
Waterfront and then, at a later
reading, voting for it.
"What is his real position?"
Weekley asked.
McPherson said he looks at
the runoff as a completely differ-
ent race one that will yield
much different results. He totaled
43 percent while Weekley took
49 percent, of the 6,342 votes
citywide.
"I think this is basically a
brand new election," McPherson
said, adding he has no idea where
the nearly 8 percent of votes the
other four candidates received
combined will go.
McPherson advertises himself
a family man, concerned with
maintaining quality of life on the
island.
District 4 candidate Richard
Klitenick is focusing on the same
issues, and received a possible


boost from former candidate
George Maurer in the form of an
endorsement.
Maurer was knocked out of
the race Tuesday but did pull in
121 votes, or almost 9 percent.
Klitenick hopes to pull in as
many of Maurer's votes as possi-
ble.
His opponent, business owner
Barry Gibson, says the endorse-
ment won't slow him down and
he was thrilled with the almost 60
percent voter turnout for his New
Town district.
Gibson took 626 votes, one
more than Klitenick's 625. That
put them in the runoff.
"This race'is a perfect exam-
ple of the fact you have two great
candidates running," Gibson said.
"But I think my leadership skills
have proven what I can do,"
touching on his experience as a
bank manager and president of
many community organizations.
District 5 City Commissioner
Jose Menendez lost 65 percent of
his voter support from the previ-
ous city election, drawing 14 per-
cent of the vote.


At Tuesday's City
Commission meeting, Menendez
commented on how much he's
seen Key West change over the
years,
"Today, it is so diverse," he
said. "Ninety percent of people
waving signs'I didn't recognize."
He added, "I don't have
eriough words to say thank you.
Thank you to each and every one
of you. I've learned a lot."
He was unseated by Teri
Johnston, who was sworn in
Friday along with Utility Board
members Charlie Bradford,
Mona Clark and City
Commissioner Mark Rossi.
Rossi, in District 2, beat first-
time political candidate Todd
German.
Utility Board Group 1 is a face
off between Charles, Lee and Ty
Symroski, after outgoing City
Commissioner Harry Bethel, who
tied with Lee, was knocked out
after a hat drawing.
Along with the Land Trust ref-
erendum, voters will have the
chance to vote,to give residents
the opportunity to decide on city
land annexations.

Private sewer plant-in play?


Developers
possibly eye
KW Resort land
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Some call it an evolution, but
however you phrase it, Stock
Island is changing.
Iffy trailers are being
replaced with at the least -
snappy clean modular homes
and at the most luxury
housing.
In recent months, a handful of
landowners baided together and
bought a huge chunk of the
waterfront. Now rumors are
floating that the vision for the
island's future doesn't necessari-
ly include a sewer plant.
"Everybody would have
[acquiring the KW Resort
Utilities property] as something
they would be interested in
doing," said attorney David Paul
Horan, whose clients own most
of the land adjoining Safe
Harbor on the south end of Stock
Island. "There's definitely a
higher and better use for that
property."
Horan represents Charlie
Renier, whose New Stock Island
Properties has invested tens of-
millions of dollars purchasing
the land around one of the few
deep water harbors in the Keys.
"I put a group of friends
together, trying to build some-
thing great for Stock Island,"
Renier told the County
Commission during its
September meeting. "I'm a fish-
erman who had a vision to keep

The family-owned transfer station that sits next to the sewer
plant is not up for sale, owner Cecilia Gonzales says.


Stock Island."
That vision, he said, includes
a working commercial water-
front that will appeal to tourists
while still supporting the fishing
industry with dock space, fish
houses and boat repair.
But the private KW Resort
Utilities, which owns a sewer
plant that will. ultimately serve
more than 1,500 households, sits
right on the edge of that water-
front vision.
So far, utility spokesman Bill
Barry said, there are no negotia-
tions to sell the land under the


plant. Renier was unavailable for
comment, but his attorney
agreed no offers are on the table.
But rumors are enough to
have some officials looking at
what the sale could mean.
"I've said all along that a
plant situated on Rockland
Industrial Park is better than
where it is now," Monroe
County sewer projects Manager
Liz Wood said. That's where the
county will construct a plant to
serve Big Coppitt, Rockland and
Geiger keys.
"We've had no official com-
munication, but there is some
talk about it," Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority Director
Jim Reynolds said. His agency is
overseeing sewer projects in

He said the Rockland plant
could be expanded to process
added effluent from Stock
Island, if necessary.
If the private utility were to
sell the Stock Island parcel,
Wood said, state law would man-

customer base. KW Resort
Utilities could not just close

"Our company is committed

Wireless program founders


Keys Energy
likely to just
'phase out' plan
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

They imagined a wonderful
canopy covering Key West's his-
toric waterfront. It would blan-
ket the area, providing an inte-
gral part of daily life at a whole-
sale cost.
But Keys Energy Service's
wireless Internet program is fal-
tering.
"Our initial optimism is wan-
ing," said Julio Barroso,
spokesman for Keys Energy.
"It's probably going to be some-
thing that we just phase out."
The program began during
the summer as a partnership with
DTNet to canvas the Key West
Bight area with low-cost Internet

Grand Key responses
earn Mqdals of Valor

Several Key West police offi-
cers on Tuesday received the
department's Medal of Valor for.
their work when carbon-monox-
ide poisoning was found at the
DoubleTree Grand Key Resort in
2006.
One person, a tourist, died
from the poisoning, and several
lawsuits against the hotel's oper-
ating company are pending.
Tuesday, Chief Bill Maudlin
awarded the medals to officers
Areak Jewell, Carter Sims,
Derek Wallis and Steve Torrence,
and Sgt. Frank Blasberg.
Jewell, Sims and Blasberg
were the first police responders
to arrive at the Grand Key Dec.
27, 2006, on a call that two men
were lying in a room uncon-
scious, and one was possibly not
breathing. The officers rushed
into the room and began CPR.
Wallis and Torrence were two
of several first responders to
arrive at the scene. Despite the
known threat that there were
noxious fumes in the air, they
stayed on scene, clearing the
floor of the hotel where the gas
was strongest to make sure
everyone was safely out of the
building.


service to residents, some of
whom might not be able to get
other access, as well as provide
temporary service to tourists.
The program should continue to
its end date in March, but the
outlook for continuing is not
hopeful, Barroso said.
DTNet built the transmitters,
and Keys Energy began market-
ing the service. But the project
soon exceeded estimations:
more transmitters were needed
for more complete coverage.
The problems facing such a
plan in Key West are not unique.
The promise of blanket wire-
less coverage excited city plan-
ners throughout the country,
though implementing it has pro-
duced spectacular failures.
Chicago, Philadelphia and San
Francisco now see such services
failing to attract customers.
Earthlink, often the company
vying to install such networks,
has laid off hundreds in wake of
such failures.
Other cities, Minneapolis and
Portland among them, have had
more success by making their
large city governments anchor


tenets for the service, further
subsidizing the installation of
the service. The Keys Energy
Utility Board has not been
briefed on the results of the pilot
program, and board member
Peter Batty says it cannot assess
such options until the program
ends.
Providers of the service and
advocates of Internet access for
the poor would have municipali-
ties take on Internet access as a
utility such as water or roads.
Without large amounts of public
money, wireless companies find
it difficult competing with wired
Internet access. Wireless trans-,
mitters must be built, and those
costs must be passed on to cus-
tomers who are already wary of
paying for a product inferior to
its wired counterparts.
Barroso said the Utility
Board could take up the issue if
it chose once the trial ends, but
that Keys Energy wanted to
avoid passing along such costs
to customers.
"It's going to be too expen-
sive for us to take that on," he
said. "It's not looking like that's
going to happen in the near
future."

Parade, memorial in conflict


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Key West city commission-
ers on Tuesday wrestled with a
potentially uncomfortable situ-
ation involving the annual Key
West Holiday Parade and
World AIDS Day Dec. 1.
Every seven years, the two
events fall on the same day, as
the Holiday Parade is sched-
uled for the first Saturday of
December.
Those attending the AIDS
Day event participate in a
somber walk and remember the
people who fell victim to the
disease, as the names are
engraved at the AIDS
Memorial at the White Street
Pier.
"How am I going to go to
such a solemn occasion and
then try and have fun at the


Holiday Parade?" asked
Commissioner Clayton Lopez,
who sponsored a resolution to
try to move the parade to the
second Saturday rather than the
.first.
Commissioners decided to
postpone the vote until
Commissioner Harry Bethel is
present at the Oct. 16 meeting,
as he plays a large role in
organizing the Holiday Parade.
Also Tuesday at its regular
meeting, the commission:
+ Unanimously approved
the first step to revamping
Mallory Square by approving a
$321,477 bid to CH2M Hill to
improve the dock there. The
project, expected to cost $3.5
million in its entirety, is intend-
ed to rehabilitate the main
wharf structure. Half that total


will come from grants and the
other from the city.
Without discussion, post-
poned voting on whether to add
a fourth floor to the Westin
Resort and Marina parking
garage at 231 to 279 Front St.
+ Rejected a bid to repair
the Garrison Bight that was
originally extended to Center
Contracting Corp./Corporation
Gunderboom Inc. The bidding
process has been reopened.
Approved a referendum
question asking voters if they
would like to weigh in on any
proposed land annexation in
the future.
Through an add-on resolu-
tion, the commission approved
signatures gathered by the
Wisteria Island Committee that
puts the question on the Nov. 6
runoff ballot.


New southernmost VFW opens


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Military Veterans have a new
Key West venue where they can
discuss community projects and
socialize over drinks, as the new
Veterans of Foreign Wars post
opened Friday at 2200 N.
Roosevelt Blvd. .
According to Cmdr. Steve


Maday, there are 450 members of
the southernmost post, although
only about 30 live in Key West.
The property used to be home
to the Twisted Noodle restaurant,
and the kitchen required a lot of
cleaning to get rid of the residual
stench and mess from the restau-
rant.

"There was grease all over the
kitchen," he said.
The post shut down its old
location at 225 Elizabeth St. July
15. That property was cleared to
make room for the Harbor House
Condominiums.
Maday said there were some
initial delays because the liquor
license had to be transferred from
the old location to the new, and
they needed approval from the
state Bureau of Alcoholic
Beverages and Tobacco.
They also had to get past zon-
ing restrictions, Maday said, as
that area is designated commer-
cial and the VFW is a nonprofit,
private club.
"We had to pay $2,000 for a
special conditional-use license,"
he said.
The Planning Board approved
the new building during a mid-
September meeting.
"I think it will work out
great," Maday said, adding the
group has a lot of members from
Naval Air Station Key West and
the U.S. Coast Guard.
"Were just happier than heck
to get our doors back open," he
added.
The group discusses post busi-
ness, such as donating to battered
women of Key West and the Key
West High School wrestling
team. It meets the fir-t Saturday
of every month. For more infor-
mation call 294-9968.

new owners hope to open the

There is an existing Tom

The complex will be elevated
above flood levels and built of
poured concrete, including the
roof. The new warehouse that
will store the materials and sup-
plies necessary for restoration
will also be a much stronger
structure than currently exists.
The warehouse was designed to
store bucket trucks inside during
hurricanes to protect them from
potential water and wind damage.
In addition, the new facility
will contain adequate genera-
tion, fuel storage, water storage,
food storage and food prepara-
tion facilities to allow crews of

for at least 72 hours. A large
reinforced cafeteria/multipur-

An additional benefit of the

Park accepts applications


Dry Tortugas
will issue up
to 30 permits

Officials at Dry Tortugas
National Park are accepting
applications from individuals
and companies interested in pro-
viding authorized visitor servic-
es in the park 70 miles west of
Key West.
The so-called commercial-
use authorizations are permits
issued by the National Park
Service for business or commer-
cial services that begin and end
outside park boundaries.
Thirty such authorizations
will be awarded for approved
activities including guide fish-
ing, dive and snorkel trips,
wildlife tours and sailing char-
ters.
There will be commercial-use
authorizations awarded for up to
11 guide fishing vessels, nine
dive and snorkel operations,
eight wildlife viewing opera-
tions and two sailing charters.
The 30 permits reflect the


intent of the park's approved
general management plan
amendment to use commercial
services to expand and direct
opportunities for visitor use.
When the National Park
Service began the process to
develop a general management
plan amendment for the park, a
moratorium was placed on issu-
ing new commercial-use author-
izations until the plan was com-
plete. That amendment was
completed in 2002 and set a
limit of the 30 authorizations.
Businesses interested in
offering more than one type of
activity must submit a permit
application package for each
activity. Since each commercial-
use authorization will authorize
the use of only one vessel, busi-
nesses wanting to operate more
than one vessel will need to sub-
mit multiple applications
* The new commercial-use
authorizations will be issued in
January and be valid through
Dec. 31, 2009.
Applications must be mailed


to the Chief Ranger's Office of
Everglades and Dry Tortugas
national parks, 40001 State Road
9336, Homestead, FL 33034;
and be received by Nov. 30.
For further information or to
request an application package,
contact Skaidra Kempkowski,
permit examiner for the parks, at
(305) 242-7732. Application
packages can also be obtained
online at www.nps.gov/drto.


Price is $1.6 million

She said applicants should

Greg MacLaren of Internet

It's a crabby time of the year


It's migration
season, and that
means they're as
bold as ever

By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

As the September full moon
cast an eerie half-light through
lowthanging clouds lying the
horizon, they emerged from the
dark of the North Key Largo
woods.
An uncountable number, easily
into the hundreds perhaps
thousands skittered across the
black flat of Card Sound Road.
The giant land crabs were
swarming en masse.
Motorists slowed and weaved
out of concern for wildlife preser-
vation-- and fear of tire perfora-
tion.
The bony structure of the land
crab is notorious for its ability to
puncture automotive tires, even
after the hapless crab has been
flattened by rubber tread.
But completely avoiding the
land-based crustaceans proved
nearly impossible. Some crabs
were frozen by headlights, others
seemed to brazenly charge into the
path of oncoming vehicles.
The ensuing crunch was audi-
ble.
Giant land crabs, also known
as blue land crabs (Cardisoma
guanhumi), are native to South
Florida and much of the

s M -* ^^ :i :


Caribbean.
Armed with two claws, one
larger than the other, they can
grow to a size measuring 6 inches
across the carapace. The claw can


deliver a pinch described in one
account as "memorable."
Scientific reports say the crabs
typically appear in mass numbers
twice a year, during spring and fall
migrations.
Land crabs are considered
semi-terrestrial. They live almost
all their lives ashore, and can
thrive several miles from the
ocean or brackish water.
But the females must return to
the shore to deposit her eggs.
Land crabs burrow into the
ground, leaving nearly circular
holes several inches across. The
burrows can run back several feet.
Crabs use the holes for shelter and
to collect water they use to stay

wet.
"That's usually how we hear
about them," said Kim Gabel, hor-
ticulture agent for the Monroe
County Extension Service.


"People get concerned about the
holes land crabs dig in their yards
or gardens.
"There is a chance the holes
can' damage a root system, and
enough holes can
leave an area look-
ing like Swiss
cheese," Gabel
said. "But that's
part of life here in
the Keys."
Crabs generally
are considered shy,
staying near their
holes and retreating
when threatened.
But during migra-
tions, they have
been known to bold-
ly stroll into homes through open
doors.
"In Florida, the spawning sea-
son and female migration to ocean
lasts from June to December,
peaking in October and
November," according to the
Florida Cooperative Extension
Service's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences.
S"Once the eggs hatch, the tiny
larvae are carried out to sea. The
development stage from larvae to
small crab takes about a month
out in the ocean.... Currents can
carry a concentration of larvae
quite far before depositing young
crabs on another shore. This phe-
nomenon sometimes seems as if
an invasion of young land crabs
has occurred in an area."

Females of the species can be

recipes for crabs and rice using
land crabs can be found on the
Internet and are popular as a
food source in the Caribbean.
Biologists believe the land-crab
population has been depleted in
these areas but detailed studies on
the species are limited.
Florida even has a season on
blue land crabs (Nov. 1 through
June 30; closed July 1 through
Oct. 31) and a daily limit (20).
Development and the 2004-05
hurricanes seemed to have
reduced the Florida population of
land crabs, but reports indicate it
is rebounding this year. One theo-
ry holds that this year's drought
followed by recent heavy rains
somehow triggered mass migra-
tions.

Tern expert speaks

Thurber follows in Sanchez's footsteps


Folk artist's
show recalls
Keys of past
Andy Thurber's new
work, under the title
"Ropa Vieja," recalls his
childhood in Key West when
downtown was populated with
shrimpers and sailors.
Ropa vieja is a Cuban phrase
that means "old clothes." It is
also the name of an entree fea-
turing a shredded-beef pot roast.
The show opens with a recep-
tion 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 13 at the
Gallery on Greene, 606 Greene
St., Key West.
Thurber's bold colors and
confident brush strokes define
dreamlike images that evoke the
simple lifestyles of contentment
underwriting the island's reputa-
tion as paradise.
"For years I courted Andy
Thurber," says Nance Frank,
Gallery on Greene's owner. "We
saw each other at Little Jons,
Five Brothers or M&M's. Five
years later, the friendship that
developed between us devel-
oped."
"I could see his unique talent
and knew he would be a great fit
for the Gallery on Greene that
prides itself in Key West's most
remarkable talents like Mario
Sanchez and Jeff MacNelly."
Memories are Thurber's stock
in trade.
"I am a product of Key
West's art community," he says.
"I am a native son who feels
qualified to tell my childhood
stories through my work.
"As a young boy, I slobbered
enviously over the work of local
artists like Mario Sanchez, Irma
Quigley, Sanford Birdsey,
Walter Ashe, Papito Suarez
and Suzie DePoo."
He credits his success to asso-
ciations with local artists who
nurtured his fledgling skills. He
was first in the Guild Hall
Gallery, a cooperative. From
there, Malcolm Ross and
Florence Miller coordinated his
first exhibition, "Restless
Native," at the Florida Keys
Community College Library
Gallery.
Thurber inherits the island's
folk-artist mantle from Sanchez,
and has recently added Sanchez-
like woodcarving to his skills.
"My sleepy little Conch town
has evolved and, like Mario


Sanchez,
my work
sings about
a bygone
era. We
-. ,:, .both
delight in
S"depicting
the island's
zany char-
acters and
places.
"Our
Judi Bradford styles dif-
fer in that I
usually work up close. Mario
would capture whole street
scenes. I have studied his work
extensively and know the impor-
tance of recording the island's
folk life and history. It has taken
me several years to get comfort-
able carving the wood. My goal
is simple: to become Key West's
best contemporary folk artist,"
Thurber continued.
A product of St. Mary's
Catholic school, Thurber's life in
Key West included working on
crawfish, stone crab and shrimp
boats and traveling by boat
through Cuba, the Bahamas and
Jamaica.
"I've seen cockfights, played
dominoes and survived 46 years
of hurricane parties," he says.
"I've lived among the Cuban
people as one of their own and
enjoy their company immensely.
I'm proud to be a closet Cuban.
SI've danced in the Key West
Comparsa from the Gulf of
Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean
five times."
"I've caught jewfish under a
wooden pier that was Mallory
Square. My mother used to take
me and my sisters shopping at


i.- .



f i i'S.,--


Neisner's, McCrory's, Eagle
Army Navy and Woolworth's.
Mom's second husband was 'Ice
Cream Baby,' Roy Watson. We'd
go to Dipper Dan's in Searstown
to eat ice cream and watch the
people walk by. Mom's favorite
dish was Queen of All Pudding."
The artist reminisces about
driving go-carts "full throttle"
through the Dean Lopez Funeral
Home and drinking his first beer
with the Dean brothers on top of
The Puppet Theatre that is now
the Red Barn Theatre.
He was among the kids who
dove for coins when Tennessee
Williams was writing Key West
into his fiction and Hollywood
was down here, for filming.
His was the last generation
when Key West was a true
hometown. He remembers it
well and fondly, and his paint-
ings make the viewer wish it
were their childhood, too.

Conchs

finish 5-1

Team's 1 point
away from an
undefeated year
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Suddenly, the high-school
junior-varsity football team
was the talk of the town, cap-
turing the hearts of fans that
came 400 strong Wednesday
afternoon to Tommy Roberts
Memorial Stadium.
In the early-October sun-
shine, knowing it was on the
brink of an undefeated season,
Key West took the field at 5
p.m. against Miami's Belen
Jesuit Prep.
Dressed in red, with helmets
that hid their fresh faces, the
Conchs came out hitting the
smacks of shoulder pads slam-
ming shoulder pads filled the
warm air as their coaches
exhorted: "Yeah! Yeah!" ...
"Go, baby!".. "Way to hustle,
baby!"
J.P. Malott, an intense fresh-
man defensive end, threw a
runner for a loss that helped
stall a long Belen drive, and
Key West got the ball for the
first time late in the opening
quarter.
Andre Drew ran for 40 yards
and then long-legged Christian
Stewart sprinted more than 50
for a touchdown on a reverse

Team's assured

Led by the improved play of
George Hoffman and J.P.
McCabe, the Marathon High
School golf team defeated
Palmer Trinity School 172-176
Thursday at Grenada Golf Club
in Coral Springs.
Dolphins coach Dean
Carrigan said Hoffman, who
shot his lowest-ever score in- a


match, secured the victory over
Palmer with his solid play in the
No. 5 slot.
"George was in the last group
and we were down three he
basically won it for us,"
Carrigan said. "For George, that
was awesome and a nice confi-
dence builder for the rest of the
year."
The Dolphins improved to 9-
7 with the victory, assuring
themselves of at least a .500
winning percentage. Carrigan
said that was the team's goal
before the season started.
,"This, is probably the most


place as an individual.

mates Megan Gunther (24:19)

Senior Jay Hegland led the

nine-hole course. Hoffman shot

Gratton finished with a 46.
McCabe continued a recent
tradition, playing his round
against the Falcons in Crocs as
opposed to golf shoes. It began
when he left his golfing attire
behind prior to a recent road trip.
"I told him he can't wear golf
shoes anymore," Carrigan joked.

that surprised the Wolverines.
"And they've scouted us,"
athletic director Peter Fraga
said on the sideline.
Trevoi Gordon kicked the
extra point for a 7-0 lead.
The hitting continued -
four defenders pounded a Belen
receiver, Carlton "Cool"
Howard sacked the quarterback,
Fyrland Sanon knocked down a
ball carrier and, sportingly, lift-
ed him back to his feet.
But Belen finally broke a
runner loose in front of a swarm
of Conch cheerleaders for a
touchdown early in the second
quarter. A two-point conversion
run put the Wolverines ahead,
8-7.
"Hey, Belen," sang the unde-
terred cheerleaders, "whatcha
gonna do when the Conchs beat
you?"
Key West went to a passing
game, but the passes were
dropped or overthrown. A sec-
ond before halftime, Belen
scored on a 25-yard run for a
14-7 lead,
The sun had disappeared and
the overhead clouds -were
gloomy when the Conchs clat-
tered out of their locker room
for the second half.
On the sideline, the Key
West linemen were put through
a warm-up hitting-drill, but
when two players rammed each
other with a force that comical-
ly entangled their facemasks, it
abruptly ended.
On the field, Stewart
returned the kickoff to the
Belen 25 yard line, setting up an


eventual 17-yard TD run by
Drew. Gordon's kick appeared
to tie the score but a penalty
nullified it. The next attempt
was botched and the Conchs
still trailed, 14-13.
Malott seemed to be every-
where. Early in the fourth quar-
ter, he forced a fumble, recov-
ered the ball, returned to the
bench and went over to his
mother who leaned over the
grandstand fence and told, him,


long fourth-down pass spiraled
out of bounds and Belen took
over with four minutes left.
"Get the ball! Go after the ball,"
the fans shouted, stomping the
metal bleachers.
The Conchs got one more
chance, but a long pass was
intercepted.,Seconds later, with
the scoreboard showing 14-13
in bright red lights, the game
and a 5-1 season ended,

Falcons make.


quick work of Fins


Palmer's strength
undoes Marathon
volleyball team
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynotei.com

Their defense had
improved significantly, but the
Marathon High School girls'
volleyball team had trouble
scoring against" a long-hitting
Palmer Trinity School team,
coach Kevin Freeman said.
The Dolphins lost in three
straight games to the district
rival Falcons, 11-25, 15-25,
12-25.
"There were a lot of long
points where we hustled, but
we just didn't win them. We'd
make a pass and get it back
over [the'net] but we weren't
finishing well," Freeman said.
The Dolphins (2-7) stressed
defense in practice this past
week in preparation for the
Falcons, who Freeman said
are undefeated in the district
and one of the best teams in
South Florida. They feature
several players over 6 feet tall.
"I thought we played well
all three games, but we.
focused on defense so much
because they hit so well. We
just didn't play well offen-
sively," Freeman said.
The Dolphins did post a
season-high 12 blocks while
taking an aggressive approach
at the net against the Falcons.
Unfortunately, Freeman said,
it also led to a lot of easy
points for the Falcons.
S"We had a lot of blocks but
we were in the net a lot at
least 10 times if not more," he
said. "They weren't crucial
points at crucial times but
we're not making them earn it.
It's being aggressive, which is
good, but we have to learn to
be careful at the same time."
Senior Jessica Brier had
five of those 12 blocks, along
with two kills. Senior Alexis
Culver had three kills, a block
and an ace, while freshman
Kelly Struyf posted two kills


and three blocks.
Freeman said he was proud
of the way the team stuck
together during the match and
that he felt like they were
playing well against a very
tough opponent. Down 20-4 in
the first game, he said the
team still had confidence.
"For us to stay positive
after everything that's hap-
pened this year, it's good. We
weren't unhappy with the way
we played.... We stayed
focused and emotional,"
Freeman said.
, Marathon played a Friday
match against Miami Country
Day, the final home game for
seniors. Results were not
available at press time. They
play next at a tournament
hosted by Florida Christian
School in Miami Oct. 12.

Soccer Eagles go 7-2


Volleyball team
stands at 5-5
after slumping
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Island Christian School's soc-
cer Eagles struggled in the sec-
ond half Tuesday but still sal-
vaged the team's seventh win.
The Eagles topped Colonial
Christian, 4-2, in a match not
sealed until the final minutes.
"We barely practiced all week
because of the rain," ICS coach
Robert Lucas said. "It definitely
showed."
Island Christian carried a 7-2
record into Friday's game
against rival Princeton Christian.
Both ICS losses were to
Princeton in earlier meetings.
Friday's results were not avail-
able at press time.
A goal by Jordan Izaguirre
gave the Eagles a 1-0 halftime
lead over Colonial's Patriots.
A ball came off a Colonial


defender and into the Patriot net
for the Eagles' second goal.
What appeared to be a work-
manlike but certain win nearly
came undone when breakdowns
let the Patriots score two quick
goals in the second half, tying
the game at 2-2.
"That was not pretty," Lucas
said. "We need to do better."
A goal by Charlie Marmitt
put the Eagles back in front, but
it was a shaky position until
Matthew Izaguirre's goal with
two minutes locked it up.
Island Christian has added
two home games to the schedule
this week, both against Calusa
Prep. The. Colts will be in
Islamorada for games at 4 p.m.
Monday and Friday.

Volleyball
Island Christian will try to get
back in the win column Tuesday
with a trip to face Calusa Prep.
The Lady Eagles (5-5) have
slumped in losing their two last
doubleheaders, most recently
falling to Colonial Christian on


Tuesday.
A limited roster missing vet-
eran Jennifer Subic hindered the
Eagles at Colonial. Coach Sheryl
Yost was alone on the bench
with all six available players on
the court.
The Lady Eagles played well
enough to win one of the seven
games and stay close in the oth-
ers.
The Eagles took the opening
game, 25-21, but Colonial won
three straight, 26-22, 25-22, 25-
11.
The Patriots fended off the
Eagles in the second match, 25-
21, 25-23, 25-22.
Jenny Glaze had five kill
shots in the doubleheader.
Carrlee Pinder and Kailin
Mearns led ICS in serving.
"At first the girls were unfo-
cused but they regrouped and
began playing better," Yost said.
"It was not to be our night."
An Oct. 15 match at
Westwood Christian closes out
the ICS regular season.
The District 16-A
Tournament opens Oct. 22 at
Miami's MacArthur South.

proud of the vast improvement
McCabe has shown since the
season began.
"He was a guy coming in
where he had the talent but never
played in a match, but now we
can expect him to hit it in the
mid-40s. So it is good to see," he
said.

Carrigan said Hegland got off
to a rocky start, but still had
opportunities to shoot lower than
he did.
"He hit two 9-irons into the
par-5s for his second shots and
made a birdie and a par. For him,
normally that would be two
birdies and it wasn't," he said.
Carrigan said it was impor-
tant the team continue playing
well heading into districts.


"We're going to need all
these guys these last few match-
es. What they're doing now is
great, but we need them to play
better. It doesn't mean much if
we play bad at districts," he said.

Keynoter Staff

Now is the time for the Coral
Shores High School swim team
to get serious.
The Hurricane boys and girls
teams have aimed their season to
peak in October, with a county
championship and state berths on
the line.
Key West High School hosts


the county championships
Wednesday at the Florida Keys
Community College Pool, the
last meet of the regular season.
Marathon will also swim there.
Qualifying for spots in the
state championships begins Oct.
18 at the District 12-A meet host-
ed by Ransom Everglades at the
Miami Dade College pool.
"We really wanted to host the
districts" at Founders Park in
Islamorada, Coral Shores coach
Mark Hill said. "But we can
swim fast in any pool."


Coral Shores' volleyball
team rallied to beat Maritime and
Science Technology Academy in
Miami earlier this week.
"We lost the first game, then
decided to get serious,"
Hurricane coach Andy Thiery
said.
Game scores were not avail-
able at press time, but margins in
the final three games were not
particularly close, Thiery said.
After traveling to Key West
High School on Tuesday (game
moved because of Homecoming
Week), the Lady Hurricanes host
Carrollton at 5 p.m. Thursday.
