Keys fail



the state's



report card


As a result,
loss of building
permits is possible
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com.

Monroe County has failed its
annual report card with the
Florida Department of Com-
munity Affairs.
"It's a little frustrating when
they fail to fund you, then criti-
cize you for not doing enough,"
County Administrator Tom Willi
said. "We're working to correct
the perceptions in that report."
DCA issued iets annual assess-
ment report in September, evalu-


ating the county's overall
progress to meet goals of envi-
ronmental protection in the Keys
by a deadline of 2010, mostly
pertaining to installing sewers to
replace septic tanks and cesspits
that can leach sewage into
nearshore waters.
In a letter to Gov. Charlie Crist
and the Cabinet, DCA Secretary
Tom Pelham recommends the
Cabinet find the county has not
made substantial progress toward
fulfilling a work program out-
lined by the state as part of its
oversight-

Airline plans
Marathon flights

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Monroe County Airports
Director Peter Horton says a
graphic on the home page of
Vintage Props & Jets' Web site
depicting Marathon as one of its
stopping points is a bit premature.
Horton said a number of
important questions have not
been answered regarding the pos-


sible service and that a deal with
the New Smyra-based carrier
"is not set by any stretch of the
imagination."
He said decisions over the air-
line's desire for a financial guar-
antee and whether it-plans to fly
sterile or non-sterile, among oth-
ers, have yet to be made.
Flying non-sterile is when a
passenger doesn't go through

Development firm


files Chapter 11


Company lists
$14M in liabilities,
$10M in assets
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

A development company
planning to build a condo-hotel
in Key Largo has filed for bank-
ruptcy protection.
DB Key Largo paid almost
$9 million in 2005 for bayfront
property at mile marker .104.
The company filed for Chapter
11 bankruptcy Sept. 28 in U.S.
Bankruptcy Court. Under


Chapter 11, a company is pro-
tected from creditor lawsuits
while it reorganizes.
DB Key Largo is one of sev-
eral companies owned or man-
aged by Dana Berman. Another
Berman company, DB
Islamorada, is the developer of
the nearly complete Indigo Bay
condominium at mile marker
81.6 in Islamorada.
Businesses claiming the
developer owed them money
filed liens against DB
Islamorada throughout the year.

Permits could be reduced


DCA / From 1

pate penalties but Jon Peck,
director of public affairs for
DCA, said penalties are certainly
possible.
The state allows unincorporat-
ed Monroe County 197 building
permit allocations annually. In
the past, it has withheld alloca-
tions to force the county to meet
state requirements.
"Under the rules, if the can't
make substantial progress, [per-
mit] allocations can be decreased
by up to 20 percent," Peck said.
The final decision lies with the
Florida Cabinet sitting as the
Administration Commission.
That might -come at the
December Cabinet meeting.
The state designated the Keys
an Area of Critical State Concern
in 1972, establishing DCA as an


oversight agency because the
county was not doing enough to
protect the environment from
development.
According to the report,
Marathon, Islamorada, Layton
and Key Colony Beach are not
required to be assessed annually.
However, the DCA report notes
that Marathon and Islamorada,
like the county, are experiencing
funding shortfalls and falling
behind on projects.
Willi said a big part of this
year's bad report has to do with
definitions of progress.
"The most troubling part is
they've moved the measure of
substantial progress," he said.
"It's been defined for the past
three to four years as a commit-
ment to get these things done. We
can't put any more projects in the
ground without the partners step-
ping in."


According to the report:
Just two of eight required
sewer collection systems in the
Key Largo area are complete.
Two projects of four desig-
nated as "task D," Bay Point,
Conch Key and two Key Largo
trailer parks, are complete.
+ Through the state's revolv-
ing fund, the county has secured
only 59 percent of the $80 mil-
lion in sewer funding it is
required to come up with.
Much of the DCA finding is
based on a letter from the state
Department of Environmental
Protection that Willi said county
officials didn't see until DCA
sent its recommendation to the
Cabinet and Crist.
The DEP letter recommends
retaining the Critical Concern
designation, saying state over-
sight is vital to ensure completion
of Keys sewer projects.

Cabinet approves
two Keys land buys

As expected, the Florida
Cabinet voted Tuesday to
acquire more than 47 acres of
Monroe County land as part of
the Florida Keys Ecosystem
Florida Forever project.
A 5.47-acre tract of tropical
hardwood hammock in North
Key Largo's undeveloped
Atlantic View Estates subdivi-
sion will be acquired for $1.07
million from the Versages, a
family that has owned it since
1958. The tract is adjacent to


the Crocodile Lake National
Wildlife Refuge.
A 42.2-acre property on
Big Coppitt Key was also
approved for acquisition for
$566,100. The residentially
owned site fronts Fourth
Street and is owned by M&M
Joint Venture. It includes an
eight-acre inland pond. About
42 percent of the site is con-
sidered upland.
The Florida Keys
Ecosystem Florida Forever

at scattered sites identified for
acquisition. About 45 percent
now is in state conservation


ownership.

Sterile means once in the sys-

Horton said to fly sterile,
Vintage would have to employ
the services of the TSA.
Problems with the TSA delayed
the beginning of Delta's service
to Marathon last year.
"The TSA has said if we start
up again they need 120 days
notice, and I doubt they. will
come to Marathon for a nine-pas-
senger operation," Horton said.
"We'd be happy to have them,
but the details have not been
worked out."
Vintage flies nine-passenger

Traveler's checks
turn out to be fake

A Marathon man was jailed
Friday, accused of trying to cash
fraudulent traveler's checks at
Orion Bank in Marathon.
According to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office, the
assistant manager told deputies
Wendell Collier, 53, tried to cash
10 fraudulent American Express
traveler's checks for a total of
$5,000. The teller he approached
with the checks thought they
looked suspicious so she brought
it to the attention of the assistant
manager, who told her to call
American Express.

the decision of the Boyd Group,"
Crete said.
The Dec. 14 flights to
Marathon are listed as sold out,
which Crete says is the only way
to "block them out."
The Boyd Group is a
Colorado-based aviation consult-
ing firm that's been working with
the county to choose an airline.
Crete said Vintage submitted a
proposal for Marathon roughly
six weeks ago.
"They've been procrastinating
in responding to us," he said.
"We're eagerly awaiting their
decision. We'd be ready to start
on the 14th, but we're not going
to do it until we have a contract
[for] Marathon."
Michael Mooney, a senior
vice president with Boyd, held a
recent meeting with members of
the Florida Keys Airport Task
Force to discuss the possibility of
Vintage serving Marathon. He
said at the meeting it could be a
risk dealing with an unbrandedd"
carrier, though the airline has
proven dependable in existing
markets.
Crete said the contract would
likely be for six months to a year,
with three flights daily and five
on weekends. He said the airline
would request "simply a guaran-
tee we'll make ends meet on the
flights."
Other than Marathon, Vintage

with a $500 American Express
traveler's check that also turned

Several firms involved in development finances


BANKRUPTCY / From 1

It's unclear whether any of the
claims remain unpaid or if the
bankruptcy filing and financial
troubles at other Berman compa-
nies will have an effect on the 25-
unit Indigo Bay development.
Indigo Bay townhouses have
been advertised for $700,000 to
$1.3 million in local media.
Representatives from the
Berman Group, the company
behind both developments, did
not return phone calls for com-
ment, nor did a restructuring offi-
cer who took over management
of Berman's mortgage company.


The mortgage company
loaned millions of dollars to DB
Islamorada for Indigo Bay.
According to the filing, DB
Key Largo owes creditors $14
million and has assets of $10 mil-
lion.
DB Key Largo plans to build
20 condominium-hotel units -
19 two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-
bath units and a one-bedroom,
one-and-a-half-bath unit on
the 2.65-acre former site of
Hobos Restaurant and Marina,
Neptune's Hideaway and Kelly's
Motel, according to the Monroe
County Department of Planning
and Environmental Resources.
DB Key Largo is managed by
DBKL Manager of Coconut
Grove, whose president is
Berman.
Berman is also the principal of
The Berman Group. The compa-
ny's Web site says it specializes
in "property development, mort-
gage lending and mortgage asset
management through its three
subsidiaries."
The subsidiaries are Mortgage
Asset Management Corp., New
Urban Places, which markets
Indigo Bay, and Places Realty.
Besides the Indigo Bay and

effect the bankruptcy filing will have on completion of this project.


Key Largo projects, Mortgage
Asset Management Corp. loaned
almost $5 million to a project in
Key West, according to its Web
site.
Almost $6 million of the


money DB Key Largo used to
buy the Key Largo site was
loaned- by Mortgage Asset
Management Corp. DB Key
Largo also took out a $6.2 million
mortgage from TIB Bank,
according to Monroe County
Clerk records. The mortgage
ended up with Philrich of Key
Largo, a lender based in Fort
Lauderdale, for a $5.2 million
promissory note, records show.
Bankruptcy records also show
another Berman company, DBDS
Melbourhe, filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy in May. The filing
shows DBDS Melbourne owes
creditors more than $17 million.


The company's Web site says
Mortgage Asset Management
Corp. has loaned money to more
than 105 Berman Group projects
using investor funds. According
to an article in the South Florida
Business Journal, when the com-
pany fell behind on payments to
investors, Berman turned over
operations to Alan Goldberg,
chief restructuring officer with
Crisis Management of Miami.
According to the New Urban
Places Web site, Berman is also
developing projects in Miami,
Miami Beach, North Miami,
Tampa, Biloxi, Miss. and South
Carolina.

Iffy start to stone crab season


Reports vary on
1 st-day catch
throughout Keys
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Catches from Monday's open-
ing day of stone-crab season left
fishermen neither jubilant nor
devastated.
"So far, it looks pretty good,"
said Gary Graves from Keys
Fisheries in Marathon. "It seems


like everybody did OK for the
first pull but it's still real early."
Up the Keys, the half-dozen
fishermen working with Key
Largo Fisheries "weren't slam-
ming them," fish house co-owner
Tom Hill said, "but I didn't hear
them complaining that they didn't
make their gas money. It was all
right."
Lower Keys fisherman

returns from his traps had him a
little worried.

Waterfront revisited


Hotel issue
returning today
-to commission
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County
Commission voted unanimously
last month to approve a last-
minute add-on to a proposed
county ordinance to preserve the
working waterfront. Now
Commissioner George Neugent
wants to revisit that decision.
"After reading what was given
to us the night we made the deci-
sion," he told the Keynoter, "I
couldn't support it."
Neugent said the controversial
Sept. 19 addendum conflicts with
the state's policy for hurricane
evacuation and allows construc-
tion above the county's 35-foot
height limit.
"To build hotels that would
become shelters in place is what I
consider a conflict with state pol-
icy," he said.
The ordinance is aimed at pro-
viding incentives to landowners
so they maintain existing work-
ing waterfront uses like boat
yards and fish houses.
At the last minute, attorneys
for waterfront landowners added
a provision to change the county's
comprehensive land-use plan so
public lodgings would be consid-
ered developments "not impact-
ing hurricane evacuation times."
Attorney David Paul Horan,
representing Stock Island proper-
ty owners, said the hotels, which
are not yet permitted or built,
could be used to house "first


responders" in the event of a hur-
ricane.
County Growth Management
Director Andrew Trivette warned
the commission against approv-
ing the addendum, as did county
Planning Commissioner Sherry
Popham.
"This is an item that was not
reviewed or vetted by [the
Planning Commission] or anyone
in the public," Popham said. "It
shouldn't be included."
County Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy warned that developers
and their attorneys should not be
allowed to push through such all-
encompassing additions without
going through the entire public
process and review by elected
officials.
Neugent said he voted to
approve the ordinance and its
addendum simply because of a
time frame.
The ordinance had to be
reviewed by the state Department
of Community Affairs immedi-
ately, according to county
staffers, or it would be held up for
as much as six months. Since the
whole aif of the law is to stop
the disappearance of working
waterfront, time was of the
essence.
"I'm absolutely convinced that
the DCA is going to return this to
the county," Neugent said, "which
will give us more than enough
time to do it right this time.
The commission convenes at
9 a.m. today at the Harvey
Government Center in Key West.
The meeting will be broadcast

said. "Last year [Lower Keys
fishermen] did pretty well, but
this year is starting slow."
Stone-crab claws are the sec-
ond most important fishery to
Keys commercial fishermen, last
year generating about $9.5 mil-
lion to the Monroe County econ-
omy, according to Florida Fish
and Wildlife Research Institute
catch reports.
Monroe County typically
accounts for about 40 percent of
the statewide harvest in the
seven-month season that runs
Oct. 15 to May 15.
Of the 2.65 million pounds of
claws counted in- the 2006-07
season, 957,786 came from
Monroe County fishermen.
The Dixie-Pinellas counties
fishery was second with 825,517
pounds, with the Collier County
catch ranked third.
According to state reports, the
average wholesale price paid per
pound of claws last year was a lit-
tle under $10.
Prices vary considerably
based on the size of the claws and
may vary by location.
The largest claw, called jum-
bos, sold for more than $14 per
pound by the end of the 2005-06


season. Hurricanes in 2005
destroyed thousands of traps and
resulted in a low season catch.
"The [2005-2006] season was
drastically affected by Hurricane
Wilma right at the opening of the
season," state research scientist
Joe O'Hop said. "This obviously
had a large impact on the harvest
and traps deployed by stone crab
fishermen."
In that same year, the large
claws just smaller than
Jumbos sold for around $12
per pound dockside in that same
year. Medium and small claws
sold for well under $10.
Last year was considered
slightly below average in terms of
overall harvest rates.
As the annual catch rate
waivers, the number of Florida
fishermen holding licenses to
catch stone crabs continues to
drop.
In the 1996-97 season, Florida
issued commercial licenses with
a stone-crab endorsement to
4,349 people. By 2006, that num-
ber was down to 1,310.
There was a slight increase in
licenses issued five years ago, to
1,639, but the number has
declined every year since.


Part of that is attributable to"
state efforts to reduce the number
of traps allowed in the crab fish-
ery, and to limit licenses to those
who show catches that contribute
to their income.
In the stone-crab fishery, only
the claw is kept. Claws must be at
least two and three-quarters inch-
es to be considered legal size.

Insurance tourniquet

won't stem the bleeding

The mystery surrounding how insurance companies price their
products added a new element last week.
As reported in Saturday's Keynoter, state regulators rejected a
53.9 percent rate increase requested by United Services
Automobile Association, USAA Casualty Insurance Co. and
USAA General Indemnity Co.
What, you may ask, was USAA's justification for. this huge
increase?
As outlined in its July rate request, the company said it need-
ed the higher rates to offset "anticipated future losses" and
linked that to "rising construction costs."
To further justify the big increase for ratepayers, the compa-
ny's filing also cited the "higher cost" for reinsurance, which is
where the mystery part of this comes into play.
In January, the Florida Legislature met in special session,
prodded by Gov. Charlie Crist, to tackle runaway windstorm
insurance rates, which were increasing at double-digit rates.
One of the measures lawmakers put in place tackles claims
about the high costs of reinsurance by creating a state-backed
reinsurance program to provide lower rates. Reinsurance pro-
vides coverage for insurance companies to help pay claims after
a catastrophe.
Many of the companies that provide such reinsurance are off-
shore, which means they don't have to comply with state laws or-
face rate filing approval, so little wonder their rates are "what the
market will bear."
USAA Casualty, which primarily insures military personnel
and their families, had asked the state more than a year ago to
increase its homeowner and condominium premiums by an
average of 40 percent, citing the cost of reinsurance.
That didn't fly.
So it came back again this year and asked for even more!
This, after the state had set up a reinsurance fund just to
address such concerns.
Given our good fortune in avoiding any major hurricanes so
far this year, you would think that insurance companies would
ease back on the throttle.
But it's clear that normal marketplace rules don't often apply
to insurance rate filings.
Few believe the Legislature's tourniquet applied earlier this
year has done much more than staunch severe bleeding. And
lawmakers have yet to find any rate relief prescription for busi-
nesses or condo owners, which come under commercial proper-
ty rates.
That leaves a lot of unanswered questions and more hard work
ahead for the Legislature next year.
But based on its current track record for fixing the state budg-
et shortfall and curing property tax inequities, we don't hold out
a lot of hope for a lasting solution on insurance reform anytime
soon.

Let's help the homeless contribute


EDITOR:
I volunteered in a recent citywide effort to
clean up the mangroves, beaches and parks.
We took a pledge to promise to love the
island and encourage others to do the same.
Heart-shaped pins were handed out in hope
that at some point, everyone in Key West
would participate in keeping the island clean
and green.
But six months ago, 200 people gathered
out there doing just the same thing. It was
hard to accept that so much trash had accu-
mulated in that time even though there had
been no major storms'.
Many blamed the so-called homeless
vagrants. Even though we did find a home-
less camp, I don't believe the person sleep-
ing there alone had dumped all the old tires,
half-full paint cans, etc., into his space.
We offer an insufficient safe zone on
Stock Island for the homeless with no long-
term commitment to integrate them into soci-
ety. I am saddened by the uncompassionate


way members of our One Human Family
want to push out the less fortunate, the ones
existing on the fringes. Most people under-
stand the Catch-22 no home equals no job
and vice versa.
Perhaps our city officials would look into
the possibility of running a pilot program
that would pay members of the homeless
community who want employment to clean
up the mangroves, parks and beaches.
We have to look into creative solutions
and the homeless should be part of the coop-
erative efforts to love our island and keep it
green and clean. Those who are mentally ill
or suffer from trauma or addiction need pro-
grams and assistance.
To quote Tikkum Olam: "We're not going
to get paradise, we're not going to get a bet-
ter society, until we all work together and
bring up the person who is the weakest and
who is most in need."

Money, not compliance,

EDITOR:
In regard to your article on the
Association of Disabled Americans hitting
up small businesses in the Keys, it reminded
me of when it happened to our business
some years ago.
We had exactly the same thing happen, a
sort of fine to pay attorney's fees and a list
of [Americans with Disabilities Act] viola-
tions. We also had a contractor doing work
for us at the time and he was confronted by a
"representative" of the Association of
Disabled Americans and was offered a kick-
back if he would spot violations at other
businesses during his work.
If the Association for Disabled Americans
were so interested, why didn't it ever follow
up to make sure we complied? I think it has
more to do with lawyers drumming up busi-
ness than helping disabled people, and that's
disgusting.

Keys Boat Works has been sold to locals
who will develop high-end housing and
waterfront amenities. Thank God the real
estate market is bad enough that they are
willing to wait one year later than their origi-
nal plans for development, so possibly the
best boat yard in the Keys will keep working
until December 2008.
We cannot afford for any more properties
such as this to go the way of new develop-
ment. Otherwise, all the reasons people come
to the Keys for in the first place will be
gone. Mr. Million-dollar Condo Owner will
have to learn to fix his own boat. Otherwise,
he will settle down and spend his money
where he can get his toys serviced.
This is a mo-brainer to me.

Flat marina fee isn't fair


EDITOR:
According to the Keynoter, Deputy
Marathon City Manager C.J. "Geotis
informed council of a $1 increase per
foot, per month, to $18.50 [in City of
Marathon Marina fees]. The marina has
also decided to charge a flat fee of $250
for a mooring ball, dinghy dockage and
use of shower facilities."
Unless exceptions are included with
the new flat fee for mooring balls, then
dinghy dockage should not be included
with the mooring-ball fee.
My wife and I are disabled and I can-
not get out of our dinghy from the bow,
which is how the dinghies must moor to
the dinghy dock. Because of this, I can
only pick up and drop off my wife. I do
not get to use the marina services. And
without me taking my wife to the dock,
she would not be able to use the servic-
es.
According to the Americans with
Disabilities Act, a boat slip is defined as
that portion of a pier, main pier, finger
pier or float where a boat is moored for
the purpose of berthing, embarking or
disembarking.
The dinghy-dock float is where boats
are moored for the purpose of berthing,
embarking or disembarking and as such,
each dinghy access is considered a boat
slip.
Under the ADA, a mooring ball is a


float where boats are moored for the pur-
pose of berthing, embarking or disem-
barkihg and as such, each mooring ball
is considered a boat-slip.
The City of Marathon Marina does
not supply the minimum number of
accessible boat slips for the disabled as
shown in www.access-board
.gov/recreationifinal.htm.
Before any action is taken, the city
needs to take a very hard and honest
look at the ADA requirements. In addi-
tion, many of the boaters on mooring
balls do not use the city marina's dinghy
dock. You can go over to Dockside dur-
ing any weekday and find between nine
and 17 dinghies mooring at their dinghy
.dock. Also, you have boaters who work
at marinas where they dock and do not
require mooring at the city's dinghy
dock.
So please, before the city creates a
new flat fee for mooring balls and
dinghy dockage, it should take a long
hard look at those it will affect.
In addition, before a contract is
awarded for the construction of the new
bathhouse, it should be reviewed for
ADA requirements so the city (and vot-
ers) does not have to pay for change
orders that will be needed.

Shelters, hospitals must remain open


EDITOR:
In the Miller evacuation model for the
Florida Keys, we have always used 70 to
75 percent of the resident population to
determine evacuation timeframes. The
most recent data suggests something on
the level of 15 to 20 percent less than
that actually leaves their homes even in
the face of a Category 4 storm. This
leaves a lot of folks at home.
For the Keys, especially Key West, to
be forced to turn people out of shelters
as a Category 3 storm approaches is bad
policy. To mandate the closing of our
hospitals and emergency rooms in the
face of a storm is also bad policy.
Some day on someone's watch, this
bad policy is going to cause a lot of
unnecessary harm and possibly deaths.
Pointing out the fact that those left
behind did not leave when they had the,
chance and therefore it is their own fault
will not wash. People don't leave for
many reasons family, pets, age,
finances and safety concerns.
I once again request Gov. Charlie
Crist, state Department of Community
Affairs Secretary Thomas Pelham and
the Florida Division of Emergency
Management consider changes to this
policy, allowing us to keep our shelters
open, require our shelters to be fully
storm-ready and stocked and mandating
our hospitals and emergency rooms to be
left open so long as we have the staff


willing to man them. Until 1998, this
was our policy, and it should be again.

Who will be mayor?


Two definitely
not interested
in the post
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


It's a favorite fall sport -
speculating who will serve as
mayor on the Monroe County
Commission for the coming
year.
At their organizational meet-
ing every November, the five
elected commissioners decide
among themselves who will act
as a tie-breaker and chair the
monthly meetings.
Though it's nearly a month
away, some people in the com--
munity are already beginning to
wonder who will hold the gavel
when the Nov. 14 selection is
made.
For years, commissioners
have called the distinction a cer-
emonial one, but the sitting
mayor has used his or her title
as an opportunity to represent
the county on a slew of fronts.
Mario Di Gennaro has lob-
bied in Tallahassee and


Washington, D.C., and sits in on
meetings of the county
Workforce Housing Task Force
and a number of other groups.
"I haven't made any decision
whether I'd do it again," Di
Gennaro said. "I haven't given
it any thought, and I will not be
discussing it before we select
one."
Last year, Di Gennaro and
then-Mayor Sonny McCoy, in
what they say was an off-the-
cuff exchange, talked briefly
about the gavel exchange.
As a result, State Attorney
Mark Kohl launched an investi-
gation into a possible Sunshine
Law violation. Kohl settled the
issued by requiring all the com-
missioners to attend a seminar
covering the rules.
The Sunshine Law limits
conversations among elected
officials, not allowing them to
discuss issues that might come
before them for a vote.
Commissioner George
Neugent said he doesn't expect
to be nominated since his is
generally a minority vote on the
commission.


"I don't have a clue who it
will be," Neugent said, "but I
predict Mario will be mayor
again. However, I may nomi-
nate Sonny."
"I haven't given this a bit of
thought," McCoy said. "Having
done it just last year, though,
and served five terms as Key
West mayor, well, I just
haven't' given it any thought."
Commissioner Dixie Spehar
has served in the past, but said
she will not serve in the coming
year.
"It's an honor to serve, and
I'd be very flattered," she said,
"but when you're campaigning,
I think it's unfair to be mayor,
and it's an additional responsi-
bility that could be very diffi-
cult."
Spehar's four-year term runs
out in 2008, and she says she
will run again.

Murphy said she would

Big debate

is Thursday


Mayoral finalists
facing questions
at DoubleTree
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Thursday night's open may-
oral forum may keep Key
Westers' eyes on the political
ball despite a colossal diversion
creeping up: Fantasy Fest.
Candidates Mayor Morgan
McPherson and former Mayor
Jimmy Weekley will have an
opportunity to verbally spar at
the DoubleTree Grand Key
Resort at 6 p.m. at a forum host-
ed by the Key West Chamber of
Commerce and the Lodging
Association of the Florida Keys
and Key West. The forum, open
to the public, should last a little
over an hour, according to cham-
ber Executive Vice President
Virginia Panico.
Panico said the timing of the
forum is strategic, as the dozens
of events comprising the 10-day
Fantasy Fest start Friday.
"Nobody likes to compete
with Fantasy Fest," she said.
"There's too much activity and
it's hard to be focused on candi-
dates."
-Key West political consultant
Brooks White said the "real
campaign" for the Nov. 6 runoff
won't begin until after Fantasy
Fest's. final event, Children's
Day Oct. 28.
"Anybody who thinks this is
a done deal is wrong," White
said. "You have very, very fierce
competition between the
mayor's race and the District 4
race."
Weekley and McPherson
ended up in the runoff when

vote in the Oct. 2 general elec-
tion.
In District 4, Shades of Key
West owner Barry Gibson is bat-
tling attorney Richard Klitenick
for the City Commission seat. As
in the mayoral race, the Oct. 2
general election didn't give a
majority to those two or a third
candidate, George Maurer.
In such cases, the top two
voter-getters head to a runoff.
Also in a runoff are Utility
Board Group 1 candidates
Charles Lee, the incumbent, and
Ty Symroski.
The tactic now is finding reg-
istered voters who didn't vote in
the general election or who
weren't registered to vote that
day.
Weekley said he is contacting
employers and asking them to
talk to their employees about
voting. McPherson said he's
focused on "everything from
door to door to grassroots." He's
also seeking out people who did-
n't vote Oct. 2.
Gibson said he's hosting vol-
unteer meetings in his New
Town district and tracking down
non-voters from Oct. 2 asking
for their votes. He said he's also
pushing a referendum to change
the city charter to allow voters to
decide on annexations of proper-
ty into the city.
Klitenick said he's focusing
on non-voters and voters -alike.
He doesn't see Fantasy Fest hav-
ing large influence on the race.
"I think it's more of hiatus in
Old Town than it is in New
Town," as the district is "mainly
families" and Old Town resi-
dents are more inclined to get
swept up in the festival, he said.
As of Tuesday afternoon, 381
absentee ballots were returned of
2,292 mailed out, officials said.
Early voting for runs from
Oct. 22 to Nov. 3 from 8:30 a.m.
to 4:30 p.m. Monday through
Saturday at the Monroe County
Supervisor of Elections Office,
530 Whitehead St.
Thursday's forum will be
taped by Comcast Cable and ten-
tatively air from 8 to 9 p.m.
Saturday. Comcast is also host-

DEP slammed


on park plan


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Like the condemned before a
firing squad, five state employees
stood before a loud and angry
crowd Monday night to hear pub-
lic input on a management plan
for Fort Zachary Taylor State
Park that includes cutting down
the shady canopy of Australian
pines.
"We are pleased that you all
feel so strongly about the man-
agement of Fort Taylor," said
Lew Scruggs, a planning manag-
er with the state Department of
Environmental Protection. "We
agree 100 percent that shade is
important. However, exotics
removal has been a state goal for
more than 20 years."
A standing-room-only crowd
at the Harvey Government
Center in Key West, many of
whom have formed a nonprofit
group called Save Our Pines,
used science, logic and passion to
explain they want the park to
remain as it is.
"You're the villains in pave
paradise and put up a parking
lot," Key West songwriter Ben
Harrison said. "The trees that
have been planted out there are,
quite frankly, pathetic."
The proposed management
plan includes eventual eradica-
tion of the pines, replacing them
with trees native to the area such
as gumbo limbo. Ten percent of
the trees woild be removed
annually, though many have
already been removed and
replaced with native trees.
Save Our Pines members say
the new species do not provide


the ample canopy the existing
trees do, and that it will take
years, if not generations, for them
to provide any shade at all.
"It's for recreation, it's nice,"
Key West businessman Chris
Belland said of the park. "Leave
it the hell alone."
Resident Sandy Lee said she's
a certified arborist and ques-
tioned the intention of planting
new trees. She noted young trees
would require watering, where
the existing trees can live on nat-
ural rainfall rather than put an
added pressure on a dwindling
water supply.
The trees are not the residents'
only concern. Plans for a 1,000-
square-foot pavilion at the park's
westernmost point also raised a
lot of ire.
"You people don't under-
stand," Sandy Comell said. "We
don't want your shelters; our
shelters have been our pines."
Attorney David Paul Horan,
representing Save Our Pines,
picked apart the proposed plan bit
by bit. He noted that even plans
to replenish the sand could be a
problem.
Citing a 2006 U.S. Supreme
Court ruling, he said the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers has no
jurisdiction to issue a permit for
new sand..
The so-called Rapanos deci-
sion, he said, invalidates an exist-
ing permit that would allow DEP
to put new sand at the beach.
All comments from Monday
night will be sent back to
Tallahassee and considered in
finalizing the plan, Scruggs said.

Prepaid tuition
saves thousands
for education
The Florida Prepaid College
Board sold its first prepaid
tuition plan in 1988.
Since then, about 184,000
students have used their Florida
Prepaid College Plan benefits at
universities and colleges, and
one out of 10 young Floridians,
from babies to high-school stu-
dents, are now enrolled in the
plan.
The 20th annual enrollment
period started Monday and runs
until Jan. 31.
The price of a four-year uni-
versity tuition plan starts at
about $3 a day for a newborn.
The two-year community-col-
lege tuition plan begins at about
$1 a day.
Families can sign up online
for the Florida Prepaid College
Plan at www.florida529plans
.com, or call (800) 552-4723 to
request an enrollment kit.
To obtain current plan prices,
families must enroll by Jan. 31.
If they enroll after that, they will
be subject to plan prices that go
into effect as of October 2008.
Having a Florida Prepaid
College Plan helps students
avoid debt at a time when two-
thirds of college graduates are
burdened with loan debts aver-
aging $19,202, according to the
U.S. Department of Education's
latest data.
Since 1988, families have
purchased more than 1.2 million
prepaid plans, making it the
largest and most successful such
plan in the nation.
A freshman who entered a
Florida public university this
fall whose family bought the
prepaid four-year tuition plan
when that student was a baby
paid $3,844 for four years of
tuition that costs $11,373 today.
That is a savings of more
than $7,500.

Tuition's going up


Future hikes
to be linked
to the CPI
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The state Legislature last
week cut $117,453 to Florida
Keys Community College's
budget for the coming spring
semester.
But with a 5 percent hike in
tuition set by the state to begin in
January, plus other means of
increasing revenue, the college is
likely to continue its recent
growth spurt, administrators say.
Legislators approved $1.1 bil-
lion in cuts that slices $114 mil-
lion from the budgets of state
universities and Florida's 28
community colleges. The com-
munity colleges will suffer a
combined $30 million loss of
that figure.
But if Gov. Charlie Crist signs
the 5 percent increase, it would
restore to FKCC roughly
$32,000 in tuition revenue. Crist
vetoed the state's last attempt to
raise tuition costs by 5 percent,
but this time is different, accord-
ing to FKCC Board of Trustees
Chairman Ed Scales.
Student organizations across
the state are understanding-the
necessity of the increase. Scales
says Crist will probably not over-
look that.
"We fully expect him to
approve it," college spokes-
woman Lydia Estenoz said.
Students at Miami Dade
College, the country's largest


community college, actually sup-
port the increase, saying they
understand the dire need for
more funding. Those students are
bracing for a $2.80 increase per
credit.
As far as FKCC students are
concerned, Estenoz says there
hasn't been much talk.
"For the most part, they
haven't complained or said any-
thing really," she said.
How does the increase trans-
late for FKCC students?
In-state students will pay
$74.10 per credit hour rather
than $70.82. Because one class is
three credit hours, students will
pay $222.30 per class, a little less
than a $10 increase from the cur-
rent cost of $212.46.
For out-of-state students, it's
much more costly, according to
Estenoz, with $843.84 per three-
credit-hour class factoring in the
hike. This is $36.90 difference
from the current cost of $806.88.
Along with -the spring
increase, the Legislature
approved a measure to link the
nation's annual inflation rate to
tuition fees starting in fall 2008.
Inflation is measured by the
nation's Consumer Price Index,
and the set increase would likely
cut down on yearly quarrels
between lawmakers over tuition
costs. Tuition rates will raise
incrementally each year, but the
initiative also allows lawmakers
to increase fees beyond the infla-
tion increase if they deem it nec-
essary.
The college's 2007-08 budget
is $8,734,893.


At Beautiful Rainbow Bend Resort
Mile Marker 58, Grassy Key *


Seeing as Monroe County has
one of the highest CPIs in
Florida and that, according to
college President Jill
Landesberg-Boyle, FKCC has
the smallest budget in the state,
hikes on top of the inflation
increase could be seen as a good
possibility.
.Landesberg-Boyle said other
fees have been .slightly
increased, such as the campus's
printing fee. It used to cost stu-
dents a one -time fee of $10 to
print for the semester; now it cost
$10 a month.
Frozen positions and a fiscal-
ly conservative budget laid out .
by the new president will soften
the blow, but it'll still be painful.
According to Landesberg-
Boyle, the college will "be able
to absorb the difference." But the
cuts will still be less than helpful,
as she moves forward trying to
enhance the college's dual
enrollment program, establish a
culinary program, increase art
and literary classes and expand
environmental programs.
The list of ideas grows larger
for Landesberg-Boyle, while,
staff and funding do the opposite..

Deputies training

Middle Keys motorists,
beware: Increased speed
enforcement is coming
Thursday to the north end of the
Seven Mile Bridge.
That's where the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office is con-
ducting what it calls a laser
speed-measurement class. The
students themselves won't write
any citations if they catch
speeders, but there will be
deputies already trained in the
laser devices who will be able to
write tickets.
The speed limit at that end of
Marathon is 35 mph until a car
is actually on the span of the
bridge.

Coaches' pasts in play


Lawmaker says
rec leagues
are at risk
Associated Press

Volunteer coaches participat-
ing in youth athletic leagues
would be required to have their
backgrounds screened under a
bill proposed for next spring's
legislative session.
State Sen. Jeremy Ring is
sponsoring a bill requiring fin-
gerprints of sports coaches to be
checked by the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement. Within five days
of being placed with a team, a
coach would have to submit
background information and a
set of fingerprints to the "sanc-
tioning authority" of a league,
which would forward them to
the FDLE.


"We've got a serious loop-
hole that has to be closed, a very
serious problem that the
Legislature has to address," said
Ring, D-Margate. "We don't do
background checks with people
who work with our children
every day. It's unconscionable."
Ring said Rep. Joe Gibbons,
D-Hallandale Beach, will co-
sponsor the bill in the house dur-
ing the regular session of the
Legislature next spring.
The bill would also require
sponsoring organizations to
annually certify that all of their
coaches have been screened, or
are in the process of being
screened. It would be a misde-
meanor, punishable by up to a
year in jail, for a coach to falsify
his background information.
Ring sponsored the same bill
last year, but it died in commit-
tees without a hearing.


Sharon Berrian of the Florida
League of Cities said the cost
might cause problems for finan-
cially strapped cities and force
them to cut back on sports and
recreation programs.
The FDLE estimates that it
would run about 2,500 more fin-
gerprint checks each year, at a
cost of $15.25 per volunteer, but
that's on top of other screening
costs, like verifying Social
Security Numbers, tracking past
addresses and other data.
Pat Plocek, recreation direc-
tor for Leon County, estimated
that adding fingerprints to the
background check would
quadruple the cost to about $80
per person.
"It probably reduces the num-
ber of people willing to volun-
teer," Plocek said. "I'm not sure
all volunteers want their finger-
prints on file, for perfectly inno-
cent reasons of privacy."

Going solar pays off


Key Wester's
giving power
back to company
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

The apparent race to be Keys
Energy Services' second power
provider has been run.
Reef Relief, an organization
dedicated to protecting the local
reef, might yet come in second
with a large solar array on its Key


West headquarters. And Keys
Hydro Power, an organization
dedicated to power the Keys with
tidal currents, is on pace to finish
a year or two from now.
But first place belongs to fly
fisherman Fitz Coker, who lives
in his home on Von Phister Street
in Key West during the summer.
His solar panels will be Keys
Energy's second power provider
behind the state's municipal
power company the first-eyer
customer to provide power back


to the company that provides
electricity from the Seven Mile
Bridge south. The power they
generate go right back into the
grid, not directly to his house.
Coker is not going to power
the whole Keys, but his 3.5-kilo-
watt solar array could reduce his
energy bills by two-thirds, say the
engineers at SALT -. Sea Air
Land Technologies who
installed the panels.
The unit is ready to run and
should be online within a week,

balked at costs of installation,
which can run upward of
$40,000, and insurance, Barroso
said. But Coker's type of unit
costs less because it does not have
an array of batteries that could
power his home during an outage.
The state offers incentives to
homeowners who install panels,
though incentives for businesses
are much higher.
Barroso said Keys Energy
hopes more customers opt to
install the panels, but it cannot
offer financial support to those
who do. The utility does not
expect many customers can
*afford the setup.
"There's been a lot of interest
in the last year because of climate
change and those sorts of con-
cerns," he says. "But when they
see that dollar amount, that has
turned a lot of people off."
The company has learned
from the experience, Barroso
says, and should be able to pass
that knowledge on to customers
willing to wait to see a return
from their own panels.
"We would definitely promote
it as available to customers, but

The New York City-based
Corcoran Group Real Estate and
Maison Matecumbe have open-
ing a sales center at mile marker
81.5 to serve as a base for
Corcoran to handle Maison
Matecumbe, a new condomini-
um development from developer
George Heaton.
Maison Matecumbe features
four 6,000-square-foot single-
family homes and eight 4,000-
square-foot condos.
Corcoran is bringing in local
brokers Brooks Clark, Steve
Davis, Kim Bagnell and Cynthia
Hughes to sell Maison
Matecumbe.


they'll have to do on their own," he
says. "Hopefully other customers
that are in a position to do some-
thing similar will see that someone
has paved the way for them."
Coker's situation could'make
for a quicker return on his invest-
ment, since he only lives in his
home part of the year.
"Six months out of the year,
he'll have a power plant in the
Keys earning him credit," says
Bob Williams, founder of SALT,
based in Marathon. Combined
with not having batteries installed,
"the payback is much quicker."
But Williams says a battery
backup can be installed in the


future, and customers accus-
tomed to dirns, flashes and out-
ages of power could enjoy an
uninterrupted power supply with
such a system.
"The beauty of a battery bank
is that the inverter system would
take over or augment the power,"
he says.. "That to me is the ulti-
mate system."
Williams sees beauty in
Coker's black rooftop panels.
"It's a nice-looking array on a
metal roof with vegetation in the
background," he says. "Most
people think of panels as ugly, so
I thought this was really good
looking."


OFFICE / From 14

introduced in the Marathon
Office Depot after its post-
Hurricane Wilma renovations.
The format features lower
shelves, wider aisles and intu-
itive organization --school sup-
plies are grouped together, for
instance. Office -Depot has been
using that design in its new and
remodeled stores since 2002,
moving away from the ware-
house feel of its previous design.
"It offers our customers the
best shopping experience,"
Perlman said.


In addition to traditional sup-
plies for office, school and home
use, Office Depot sells a wide
assortment of gadgets PDAs,
digital cameras, cell phones and
mp3 players, as well as printers,
fax machines, scanners and
combinations of the three.
The Key Largo store will also
have a copy and print center and
a design, print and ship depot,
Perlman said, another feature
standard in the new design.
Office Depot has a number of
credit programs, including
financing for small business,
and a loyalty program (my
workliferewards.com).

When good bosses go bad


Sometimes, -
the paycheck just ,"
isn't worth it .......
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


National Boss' Day was
Tuesday, causing workers every-
where to look back on their hum-
ble beginnings some'with a
grimace and some with an
enhanced appreciation for their
current employment status.
Some gazed intothe past and
saw an old boss' condescending
smirk. Some, like Monroe
County Administrator Tom Willi,
smelled the unmistakable scent
of cow manure as a kid, he
worked midnights at a worm
farm in New York.
Before he was feeding that
bait to fish, suburbanites were
slamming doors in the face of a
young Willi, who was just trying
to sell an encyclopedia or two.
Finally he found his niche:
city and county management. He
worked for the city of Hallandale
under then-City Manager R.J.
Intindola, a "very, very tough city
manager," according to Willi.
While overseeing construc-
tion of a new city hall, Willi had
the bright idea it seemed
bright at the time to install a
water line to a coffee maker in
the comer of the building.
I SShortly
afterward, a
memo was
stuffed in the
j mailboxes of
each city emp-
loyee: Who
authorized the
defacement of
Government
WILLI property?
Willi was in
the doghouse.
"It just made sense," he said in
his defense. "Instead of making
people walk down the halls to get
water."
But his plea wasn't enough for
Intindola, who perhaps wasn't a
coffee drinker.
It wasn't the only time he
would incur Intindola's wrath.
Willi made the mistake of order-
ing city T-shirts with a "Team
Hallandale" logo on the front.
That, unbeknownst to Willi,


was not his slogan to use. So boss
man gave the T-shirts the ax.
Still, he says Intindola, who
retired in 2002, was "a tough
boss, but a good boss."
Tough or not, he doesn't come
close to inflicting the same
oppression and scorn that
Monroe County State Attorney's
Office spokesman Matthew
Helmerich experienced from his
former boss his mother.
"I was absolute peasant,"
Helmerich said, recalling the
days as a 12-year-old boy busing
tables at the Garden House,. a
"fancy ladies" restaurant in
Tulsa, Okla.
"She was the worst boss I've
ever had," he said, laughing.
"She treated us like slaves. If my
office now were. to come to
across her, we would've prose-
cuted her."
Peggy Helmerich, lovingly
described as Attila the Hun,
would pay about one 20th of the
legal minimum wage and was a
stickler for placement of knives
and forks, he said.
Florida Keys Community
College President Jill.
Landesberg-Boyle also had an
experience, albeit a short one, as
a waitress at a little cafe in
Medfield, Mass., while in high
school.
She makes a better college
president than a waitress.

weeks," she admitted.
While Landesberg-Boyle
struggled with trays of food, Key
West City Commissioner
Clayton Lopez wrestled with his
role as a car salesman at a local
dealership.
His bosses "would crack the
whip on us," he said. "They
would demand that we treat the
customers a certain way the
idea was just to get $100 out of
their pockets and make them buy
a car."
Lopez felt the customer
should have picked a car that
suited his or needs. He says his
superiors didn't care what kind of


car it was "just sell it."
He even had a hard time sell-
ing his current wife, Pam, a car.
Marriage, apparently, was a
much easier sales pitch.
Retiree Ed Block said he was
lucky he.had mentors through-
out his life, which taught the for-
mer Southwestern Public
Relations vice president a lot
about good management.
"The good bosses really want
you to tell them the truth," Block.
"That's when they know you're
speaking passionately."
And According to Block's co-
worker, the ingredients to make a
good boss: "brains and guts."

Marathon rolls
over Patriots,
scores 60 points
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
football showed what it can do
Friday against schools its own
size, dominating district rival
Florida Christian School at home,
60-12.
The Dolphins scored a touch-
down on every possession they
had, building a 48-0 halftime
lead. A running clock in the sec-
ond half allowed the Dolphins to
run only three offensive plays -
two of which went for scores.
Marathon coach Lance Martin
said the quality competition the
team has faced thus far has
enabled them to be more prepared
for their district schedule.
"It was a good game for the


kids, we've been playing up [in
classification] all season and I
think it's helped us quite a bit
because of their size and speed,"
Martin said in reference to teams
like Class 6A Deltona, whom the
Dolphins played earlier this sea-
son.
Nyran Ross got his first start at
quarterback after performing well
in relief of junior Kenny White
last week against Gulliver Prep.
The sophomore threw for 147
yards on five of eight attempts
and a touchdown.
"We figured it would be an
opportunity to give him a chance
and he stepped up and played
extremely well," Martin said.
"For now, he'll be our quarter-
back, but Kenny's always ready
to go back in."
Martin had said previously he
was hoping for Ross to emerge so

22 swimmers
hope to move

Twenty-two Key West
High School swimmers will
compete in the 11-team
Class 1A District 12 meet
that begins at 9 a.m.
Thursday at the Kendall
campus of Miami Dade
College.
The Conchs will be led
by senior Luke Knight, who
went to the state meet last
season and will swim in the


50- and 100-yard freestyle
races. During the regular
season, he set school records
in both events with times of
22.27 and 48.8 seconds.
Last year, nine Conchs
advanced to the regionals,
and coach Lori Bosco said,
"I'm hoping nine this time."
Bosco said both freestyle

Marathon rushes for over 300 yards, averages 14.5 a carry


FINS / From 24

White could play positions more natu-
ral to him, such as wide receiver, tight
end and fullback. It also gives him
more of a rest before having to play
defense as well.
Ross was solid, but he was aided by
a ground attack that shredded the
Patriots. Marathon rushed for 305
yards on just 21 total carries, an aver-
age of 14.5 yards per attempt.
Senior star Sergio Howard was
dominant early before giving way to
teammates A.J. Freeman and Tweet
Martin. He ran.for 101 yards and two
touchdowns on just eight carries and
also caught two balls for 70 yards and a
touchdown.
Freeman ran for 138 yards and three
touchdowns on just six carries, while
Martin ran for 54 yards and two touch-
downs on only four carries.
The Dolphins broke long plays all
game on the Patriots, including their
opening drive.

After a 14-yard Howard run and a
23-yard Ross completion to senior
Fernando Taylor, Howard would score
from seven yards out to put Marathon
up 7-0 less than four minutes into the
first quarter.
Ross threw a 46-yard bomb to senior
Daniel Perry on the Dolphins next pos-
session, which eventually led to
Freeman's first touchdown of the game.
Two plays into their next drive,
Ross threw a 65-yard touchdown pass
to Howard, giving the Dolphins a 20-0
lead.
It took only one play to score on
their next possession, as Howard
scored on a 50-yard run just 17 seconds
into the second quarter.
Not even a third-and-40 situation
could stop the Dolphins, as Freeman
turned the nearly impossible into anoth-
er Dolphin touchdown and a 34-0 lead.
The Dolphins were penalized sever-
al times after driving to the Patriot 20-
yard line, which led to them snapping
the ball from midfield and needing to
reach the 10-yard line for a first down.


"There's not many plays you have
in that situation. We just ran a draw and
he ended up scoring," Martin said.
Marathon stymied the Patriots
defensively in the first half as well.
Taylor intercepted a ball and
returned it for a score with 4:25 left in
the first half. On the Patriots ensuing,.
possession, Taylor intercepted another
ball and was tackled inches from the
goal line.
For the game, Marathon outgained
the Patriots 452 yards to 89.
After halftime, Florida Christian
coaches agreed to a running clock and
Martin took the opportunity to get
.everyone on the roster some playing
time. He said sophomore Tyler Roussin
played well in the second half.
"Tyler had a good game when he
came in, he made quite an impression,"
Martin said.
Marathon heads into a bye week-
with what Martin said is the healthiest
team he has coached at the school. It
plays another district game at Ransom
Everglades School at 4 p.m. Oct. 26.

Early lead doesn't hold up


Conchs burst
out early but
fall to Patriots
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


The homecoming game
lasted a bit too long for the
Key West High School football
team, which, after a hopeful,
thrilling beginning, wore down
and fell short of upsetting
undefeated American Heritage
Friday night at Tommy
Roberts Memorial Stadium.
Heritage scored two touch-
downs in the fourth quarter to
edge the Conchs, 15-14, and
improve to 7-0.
Key West (3-4) had been
plagued by an inability to keep
opponents from scoring at the
outset of a game. But this time,
the Conchs scored on their
first play on "28 toss pass"
installed by assistant coach
Danny Jiminez.
Quarterback Phillip Young
pitched the ball to Jycorae
Mason. Playing his first varsi-
ty game after quarterbacking


the JV team, Mason passed to
Jaxon Coleman, who was well
beyond the fooled Heritage
secondary. He cruised to an
80-yard touchdown and a 6-0
lead.
The Patriots found them-
selves in their first tight game.
"They're surprised," Conch
lineman Richie Cormack said
on the sideline.
Key West scored again late
in the first quarter on a three-
yard run by Alfred Rahming. A
two-point conversion pass to
fullback Ralph Major length-
-ened the lead to 14-0.
A scoreless second quarter
ensued, after which the Conchs
bounced off the field while the
Patriots trudged grim-faced to
their dressing room.
At halftime, Key West
Principal John Welsh
announced Jianna Hernandez,
a scrappy second baseman on
the softball team, as homecom-
ing queen.
When the game resumed,
Key West kept the Patriots at
bay until a disputed pass-inter-
ference penalty on a fourth-
and-12 play early in the fourth
quarter gave Heritage a first-
and-goal on the 6 yard line.
Three plays later, quarter-
back Ryan Williams ran in for
the touchdown, and a two-


point conversion pass cut the
lead to 14-8..
A bad punt later gave
Heritage a first down on the
Conchs' 32. The Patriots,
behind an offensive line that
had three 300-pounders
("those big fat boys," said
Major), drove toward the goal.
Despite the loud pleas to the
defense from Conch fans,
Williams scored on a two-yard
sneak. David Lopez kicked the
extra point and Heritage led,
15-14, with 5:38 left.
After the Conchs were
forced to punt on their next
possession, it appeared
Heritage would run out the
clock. But two unsportsman-
like penalties ("they started
cussing," Major said) forced
the Patriots to punt, and with a
minute left the Conchs had the
ball on the Heritage 40.
"It's not over till it's over,"
the p.a. announcer reminded.
With seconds remaining,
Thomas Daubs tried a 57-yard
field goal.that fell well short
and the game ended shortly
thereafter.
"The kids played with heart
and determination, but we also
made some mistakes," coach
Robert James said. "Hopefully,
this will push us on."
The Conchs will host
Edison in a District 16-3A
game at 7:30 p.m. Friday.


Cockerham finishes

26th of 152 in girls race


CROSS COUNTRY / From 24

Miami dominated the team
standings with the event's over-
all winner (16:37) and four of
the top nine finishers.
On the girls' side, sophomore
Andrea Cockerham ran a 22:38
to finish 26th of the 152 run-
ners.
"Andrea has been consistent-
ly strong since we started the
season," Fry said. "Megan
Guenther ran an excellent race,
and freshman Alexa Frink had
her best race of the year."
Guenther ran a 25:45 for No.
77,'and Frink (26:22) finished at
No. 86.
Emily Hiller (92, 26:43) and
Alex Gonzalez (93, 26:45) also


scored for the Lady Hurricanes
as the squad placed 14th of 23
entered teams.
With no races until Monday's
Monroe County Champion-
ships, Fry wants her runners to
ratchet up the practice miles to'
get ready for postseason.
"We've -got a 12-mile run
scheduled for the boys, and six
miles for the girls," she said.
"It's time to get some quality
miles in."
The county meet will run at
Sombrero Country Club's golf
course starting at 4 p.m.
Monday.
Coral Shores has an Oct. 24
meet against Archbishop Carroll
in Miami, then lines up for the
district meet Nov. 2 at the same
Miami course.

Eagles pull away from Canes


Close contest
ends up a
dominant rout
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Things went so wrong for
Coral Shores High School at
Hollywood Christian that even
reliable kicker Willianr Bassett
went 0-for-2 on extra points.
"One was blocked," Coral
Shores coach Todd Gideon said
while reviewing Friday's 41-12
loss to the undefeated Eagles (5-0)
in Bioward County.
The Hurricanes (3-3 overall, 2-
3 regular season) will try to get
back on track this week, traveling
to LaSalle (4-2) for a 7 p.m.
Friday game in Miami.
At Hollywood, the Hurricanes
played a solid first half and went
into the break down just 16-6.
"We were in the game until
then but something happened. We
just didn't come out to play the
second half," Gideon said. ""We


weren't attacking. It was a stag-
nant effort all around."
The Canes scored on their two
best drives of the night, senior
Jason Soares finishing both
efforts.
Soares scored on a four-yard
run in the first half and pulled in a
five-yard toss from quarterback
Chris Rini in the second.
Bassett, an impressive kicker
at the high-school level, missed
one extra-point and saw the other
blocked.
Coral Shores game statistics
were not available at press time
but Hollywood credited one
defender with four interceptions.
"Our passing game was not
clicking," Gideon said.
Ryan Biondoletti played well
against the Eagles, making an
interception for the Canes and
pulling a handful of catches offen-
sively.
Defensive tackles Justin
Marshall and Kyle Marshall con-
tinued to show strength in their
first season as varsity starters on
the defensive front.


Coral Shores plans to use this
week's practice focus on reviving
the Hurricane running game.
In the three games we've won,
we were running well," Gideon
said. "We need to get the ground
game going again. That not only
gives us another weapon but will
help take pressure off Chris Rini
and our passing game."
Julius Blankenship, Soares and
Rini have been the most effective
rushers so far this season.
This week, veteran Hurricanes
will recognize LaSalle's offense, a
Wing-T attack similar to one
employed by the Canes in recent
seasons.
"LaSalle runs a lot of misdirec-
tion and this will be the first time
this season," Gideon said. "We've
got to get ready for the different
look."
LaSalle's Royal Lions opened
strong with four straight wins,
including victories over Ransom
Everglades and Pine Crest.
But the last two weeks have
been different stories, as the Lions
scored just once in falling to
Archbishop Carroll, 32-0, and to
Doral Academy, 24-8.


Lost weekend for Lady Canes


Volleyball team
drops 4 matches
at invitational
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The heat of tournament games
against quality foes may temper
the Coral Shores girls volleyball
squad for the upcoming District
16-3A postseason, the Hurricane
coach says.
"We went up to [last week-
end's Frankie's Pizza Invitational
at] Florida Christian at 9-8 and
came out at 9-12," coach Andy
Thiery said.
"It would have been nice to
win a couple matches but the
experience should help us as we
come to the end of the regular sea-
son."
The Lady Canes drew
Riverview, a Class 6A team from
Sarasota, in opening pool play
Friday, falling 25-21, 25-17 in the
best-of-three-games format.
In the second round, Coral
Shores lost to Pines Charter, a 4A


club, 25-19, 25-18.
"We played close in every
match at the tournament," Thiery
said. "That was good to see
against the bigger schools, but we
made too many mistakes."
That put Coral Shores against
Ransom Everglades in an 8 a.m.
Saturday match.
"That's the fourth match we've
played against Ransom this year,
and we hope to see them again" at
next week's District 16-3A
Tournament, Thiery said.
Coral Shores lost the opener,
25-21, but won the second game,
25-20. Ransom won the third-
game tiebreaker, 15-10.
"We had eight net violations
and missed a bunch of serves,"
Thiery said. "We played hard but
couldn't overcome that."
The Canes closed out with a
25-22, 25-23 loss to 6A Coral
Reef.
Coral Shores libero Ciara
Sanchez was nominated by
opposing coaches for the all-tour-
nament team; final balloting was
not available.
"Ciara totally deserved to
make all-tournament," Thiery
said. "She was steady throughout,


like she always is. Shelby Gentes
had a good tournament playing
the middle. Everybody else we
took played well at some point,
but we weren't consistent."
Coral Shores closes out the
regular season at 5:30 p.m. today
with a home match against
Marathon High School (JV starts
at 4 p.m.).
The match against Marathon
and Tuesday's match against Key
West High School (results not
available at press time) gave the
Canes a shot at the unofficial
Monroe County championship.
Coral Shores, seeded fourth in
the district tournament, open post-
season play at 5 p.m. Tuesday
against Carrollton at tournament
site Ransom. The winner
advances to face Ransom, the top
seed.

Coral Shores' swim team

Team drops 4
matches against
strong squads
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
girls' volleyball team struggled
against stiff competition over the
weekend at a 12-team tournament
hosted by Florida Christian
School.
The Lady Dolphins went 0-4,
though three of their matches
were against much-larger Class
6A schools.
Dolphins coach Kevin
Freeman said he is proud of the
way the team has stuck together
despite having a down year. The
team is now 2-12.
"I thought this was going to be
a better year than what-it's shown,
but the girls aren't quitting. They
could have packed it in, but they
kept competing," he said. "We
didn't do anything wrong, we just
played really, really good teams."
The Dolphins began the tour-
nament by taking Southwest High
School, a 6A team out of Miami,


to the brink before losing the best-
of-three match 12-25, 25-21, 16-
18.
Freeman said the girls' habit of
starting sluggish continued to
plague them this weekend, as they
lost the first game handily td the
Eagles.
"The first game we came out
slow and it took us awhile to get
going. The second game we
played a lot better and won, and
the third game could have gone
either way," he said. "We just did-
n't finish."
Freeman said the team missed
four serves in the decisive third
game, which could have made the
difference between winning and
losing.
"We played well enough to
win and just didn't do it," he said.
Two bright spots for the
Dolphins squad next year, Ashley
Hooper and Vanessa Sardina
played well in the loss. Hooper, a
sophomore, had five aces while
Sardina, a junior, posted three kills.
"Vanessa had a great game
defensively; she's coming along
great. She was aggressive at the
net and stayed out of the net,"
Freeman said. "She's becoming a
good volleyball player."
Up next for the Dolphins was
Class 3A North Broward Prep, a
team Freeman said shell-shocked
the girls' at first.


S . Keynoter


"They had a lot of big girls
who were big hitters," he said.
"We made a run in the second
game, [but] against them it wasn't
enough."
Marathon lost the match 8-25,
18-25.
The 'Dolphins then faced
Riverview High School, _another
6A school out of Sarasota featur-
ing a number of players over 6
feet tall.
Senior Alexis Culver had four
kills and freshman Kelly Struyf
had two, but the Dolphins lost 7-
25, 14-25. Freeman said it was
evident the teams they were play-
ing are able to concentrate on vol-
leyball year-round.
"A lot of these teams were
great defensively, they play vol-
leyball 12 months out of the year,
where we play at most four," he
said.
In their last contest, -the
Dolphins lost a rematch with
Southwest, 24-26, 16-25.
Freeman said senior Jessica
Brier performed well against the
Eagles, serving three aces with
four kills and two blocks. Culver
had six kills and a block in the
game and Struyf had two kills and
three blocks.
The Dolphins will face Keys
rival Coral Shores High School
today in Tavernier at 5:30 p.m.
before visiting Gulliver Prep for
their final match of the season
Thursday.

Bulldogs cook the Conchs


Baker High
dominates in
cross country
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Although the Key West High
School boys' cross-country team
lost Saturday morning to the Ida
S. Baker High Bulldogs, a
strong team from Lee County,
the Conchs showed that the rig-
orous workouts they go through
each week are making them bet-
ter.
Sophomore Zach Harden ran
his best time at the Key West
Golf Club 18 minutes, 47
seconds to finish fourth, 33
seconds behind the winner,
Baker's Mike Gibson.
"He ran a really good race,"


Key West coach Terence White
said of Harden. "He was right
with the Baker runners who did
the first mile in 5:40, a fast time
for the golf course. A lot of run-
ners would have faded, but he
caught two guys in the last
mile."
Baker, which had 11 of the
top 12 finishers, won the meet,
17-45. "That was a bunch of
impressive runners," White said.
Sophomore Cale Hartle con-
tinued to establish himself as the
Conchs' No. 2, finishing 12th in
20:45. Freshman Robert Rupp
and sophomore Mike LaBounty
placed 13th and 14th, respec-
tively, with times of 20:57 and
21:06, and junior Vincent
LeNeures (21:17) was 16th.
But out of nowhere came
senior Noah Kent, whose time


of 22:42 was about eight min-
utes faster than what he was run-
ning at the beginning of the sea-
son.
White said Kent's improve-
ment can be credited to the
Conchs' weekly routine a 10-
mile run on Mondays, a hard
track session on Wednesdays
and then a race on Saturdays.
"That's. three hard workouts a
week," White said. "It builds
strong and balanced runners."
The Conch girls' team had an
intrasquad race because Baker is
an all-boys school. Olivia Kent
finished first in 26:32.
Both the boys' and girls'
teams will run against Godby
High beginning at 7:30 a.m.
Saturday at the golf course.
Then at 4 p.m. Monday, the
Monroe County Championships
will be held at Sombrero
Country Club in Marathon.


Powerboats return in November


The season,
closes with
offshore races
Maintaining its reputation as
the Indianapolis of Offshore
Powerboat Racing, Key West is
getting set to host its 27th world
championships Nov. 4 to 11.
It kicks off with a 4 p.m.
parade of race boats down
Duval Street Nov. 4 and contin-
ues through the week with races
Nov. 7, Nov. 9 and 11. In
between is a dizzying array of
social events and opportunities
to mingle with racers and their
crews in the dry pits at the
Truman Annex waterfront at the
end of Southard Street.
Race Director John
Carbonell said he expects more
than 60 boats in various classes
to compete.
"This is our 27th year and
the event has built over the
years," said Carbonell, also
president of Super Boat
International Productions, one
of the event's sanctioning bod-
ies. "It's not only a race, it's a
party and a lot of fans come
down to watch racing and have
a good time."
For John Tomlinson, the vet-
eran multiple-time world-cham-
pion throttle man from Miami,
the championship is at the top


of his list for offshore power-
boat racing.
"Key West always has the
hype," Tomlinson said. "It can
be flat. It can be rough. It is.
always challenging. If you can
get through three races, it's a
rewarding way to end the year."
Tomlinson said he and
owner/driver David Scott of
Edwardsville, Ill., plan to be in
Key West with a new 50-foot
boat. The Budweiser Select is


equipped with two 1,500-hp
engines and, according to
Tomlinson, can attain speeds
approaching 180 mph.
In addition to prime viewing
from the grandstand areas of
Truman Annex, several Key
West harbor-front hotels stage
race day specials combining
lunch and refreshments with
excellent viewing venues.
More details, including a
schedule of events, are avail-
able on the Super Boat Web site
at www.superboat.com.


Conch swimmers will


compete in many events

chance to advance.
Rachel Kohler should be a
strong contender in the 500
freestyle, Bosco said, as
should Ford in the 100 back-
stroke and Hally in the 50 and
100 freestyle.
Bosco also said Brown,
who recently set the school
record in the 100 butterfly, has
a good chance to go to the
regionals.
The *22 Conch swimmers
qualified for the district meet


during two days of time trials
last week at the Florida .Keys
Community College pool.
"We couldn't afford to take
everybody," said Bosco, who
has more than 50 on the team.
The others going to Miami
will be Clay Wagner, Ben
Covan, Oscar Fernandez,
Annabelle McLeod, Olivia
Sangermano, Katie Trent, Rae
Lark, Aubrey Mulcahy, Crysta
Vercher, Corin Bass, Amber
Dameron, Aracely Gonzalez,

Cal Sutphin need not

The tough thing about
being a tournament organizer
in most events is watching the

bailouts
Letting restaurants know in
advance how many will make
the awards banquet when there
is no way of knowing yourself
until the captains' meetings
always a headache, not to
mention how many goody-
bags to supply for the cap-
tains' meeting alone.
Well, that was not the prob-
lem with the tougher-than-
nails anglers who took to the
waters out of Key Largo, all
41 of them, an all-time high
for the Challenge.
First-place winner in both
divisions, snook and redfish,
was Jared Raskob from Key
Largo. His story is not as
much about him winning both
divisions with a 34-inch snook
and 30-inch redfish, but about
how he caught them.
He was sight fishing on the
flats and remember, 20- to
25-knot winds, rains splashing
down, water all muddied up.
Tournament director Capt.
Tony DelosSantos admitted
being impressed by Raskob
sight fishing, on the windward
side of the islands no less.


Jared Raskob of Key Largo shows one of the two trophies he
won during the Backcountry Challenge. He got both the
largest snook and largest redfish.


"Poling into that wind was
crazy. Jared told me that they
couldn't use jerk baits because
the wind was picking them up
and pulling them across the
water," he says. "They went to
using jigs and still had issues.
But obviously they knew what
they were doing. The size of
the fish speaks for them-
selves."
Rounding out the rest of the
winners in the snook division
were second-place finisher
Kim VanCampen from
Williamsport, Pa., fishing with
Capt. George Clark Jr. of Key
Largo to land a 32-incher; and
Brett Ayleshire of Miami, who
took third with a 31.5-inch
snook.
Coming in second in the
redfish category was Carl


Swensson of Islamorada. He
was fishing with Capt. Mike
Makowski of Key Largo and
entered a 28-inch redfish,
which was also good for
Makowski to secure tops in
the professional division
(guides were allowed to com-
pete, just in their own separate
division). Third went to Carlos
Sardinas of Key Largo with a
27-inch.
Top guide was awarded to
Capt. Ted Benbow of
Plantation Key, who also was
credited with guiding his son
Donnie Benbow to the place in
the young adults division. Top
honors in the kids' division
was 13-year-old Daniel

Time is ripe for locals to head out


Pretty soon, the
water's going
to be crowded

Overall, things on .shore are
still running a little slow as far
as tourists are concerned -
it's still not cold enough up
north to create the massive
migration we'll see in a few
months.
For now, we begin to meet
and greet some of the winter
residents who have enough
sense to vacate their northern
habitats prior to the first frost.
As for most of us residents,
we're happily experiencing
the slightly lower humidity
and losing a degree or two
from the daily temperatures.
So what's this have to do
with fishing? Well, right now,
the water is very similar to the
highway but in only a short
time, it, too, will be loaded
with anglers.
My point is to get out there
now while there is plenty of
room.
But it won't be long until
the weather won't allow us the
option of many good days in a
row to go do what we want, so
it's time to get to it while we
have both the time and the
weather.
From reports I've received,
fishing is about as good as it
gets now in all of the major
venues.
We are seeing excellent

The reef is active, as well,
with several of the previously
mentioned species plus good
numbers of bottom fish such
as snapper, 'tails, grouper and
much more.
Bait is not a problem since
there are big schools of bally-
hoo and pilchards around.
Hawk Channel, both around
the middle humps and bumps
as well as the edges, has lit up
with lane snapper and good
numbers of several species of
groupers.
Flats fishing is red hot
throughout the Keys. Bridge
channels have such a wide
variety of fish that you may
need to take one of those ID
books with you. All you need
there is a good amount of


Benefit

The money goes to the Take
Stock in Children Scholarship
Program, a statewide initiative
that identifies economically
disadvantaged seventh-grade
students who meet academic
and behavioral criteria, and
awards them Florida prepaid
college scholarships for two
years upon graduation. The
Don Hawley Foundation also
benefits from tournament pro-
ceeds. The foundation has
assisted scores of Keys fishing
guides during times of need.


Contest seeks swordfish, grouper


chum and lots of live shrimp;
the bites will be there.
And bay fishing is so good
that it is somewhat of a prob-
lem to decide where to go
fishing as you leave the dock.
Bait is everywhere and with it,
the predators have followed.
Even the water temperature
is not down much yet; macker-
el and cobia have begun to
show up in spots the bay. Gag
grouper are plentiful and there
is much more to catch.
I'm not sure if there are that
many new fish out there or
just the fact that the.lack of
fishing pressure the past cou-
ple of months has allowed all
of these areas to build up.
Either way, if I were you, I
would take advantage of it
now while you still can. It
won't be long until you will
see about as many boats as
buoys on the water.
