ADA suits

Conway defends
businesses sued
for violations
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Bradley Conway was tum-
bling through the ferocious
waves of the Sebastian Inlet one
gusty Sunday afternoon when the
pressure of the surf instantly
snapped his vertebrae.
That was 26 years ago. He
was only a teenager, body surfing
with friends, and almost certain
he would drown. But a friend
saw him struggling and dragged
his limp body ashore.
Conway came to and sur-
vived, but his battle with the
Atlantic left him paralyzed,
requiring him to use a wheelchair.
Because he had no cuts or bruis-
es, doctors told him the weight of
the water caused the fracture.
He stayed positive; his energy
took him far. After missing a year
of high school, he returned and
graduated. He moved on to the
University of Florida, receiving
his law degree in 1991. He now
has a law firm in Orlando.

And it's good
the faulty bridge

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Fausto Pedroso wasn't plan-
ning to spend a leisurely afternoon
on Boot Key Wednesday, but it
ended up that way after he drove a


42,000-pound 18-wheeler filled
with frozen pork hind foot knuck-
les over the Boot Key Bridge.
The bridge is in disrepair and
city officials have discussed
options for its refurbishment at
length of late.
It has a posted weight limit of
10 tons less than half what
Pedroso's rig weighed when it
crossed.


The Armellini Express Lines
driver was slated to make a deliv-
ery to Lobster Monster
Wholesale and Retail Seafood on
20th Street in Marathon, but
missed the turn and continued
straight across the bridge.
Owner Judith Silva said
Pedroso was carrying somewhere
between 12,000 and 18,000
pounds of the pork knuckles on

The Islamorada Village
Council meets Wednesday to
discuss whether to renew
Village Manager Gary Word's
contract.
Word's contract, which
includes a $115,000 annual
salary, use of a village vehicle
and a $2,700 monthly housing
allowance, expires Dec. 31.
The council must tell him by
Nov. 1 whether it plans to
renew the contract.
Turbulent relations with the
council have marked Word's
two years as village manager.
Low performance ratings
from the council prompted
Councilman Michael Reckwerdt


to ask Word to resign in January.
Word submitted a formal resig-
nation letter, but a month later,
Reckwerdt rescinded his request
and the council asked Word to
stay, citing improved job per-
formance.
Word could not be reached
for comment at press time.
In separate evaluations in
June, Mayor Dave Boerner and
Vice Mayor Cathi Hill rated
Word's performance as not
acceptable in organizational
and fiscal management, pro-
gram development and follow-
through, intermediate- and
long-range planning, and per-
sonal characteristics. They
rated him above acceptable in


his relationships with the pub-
lic, the mayor and council.
Evaluations from council-
men Don Achenberg, Chris
Sante and Michael Reckwerdt
gave Word mixed reviews.
"I tend to support him, but at
the same time I'm also con-
cerned," Boerner told The
Reporter.
"I need to study it more
carefully and give it more
thoughtful deliberation," Hill
said of Word's performance,
"but overall I don't see a
change."
Sante said Word has "made
some progress in some areas
but is still weak in others."
Wednesday's meeting begins
at 5:30 p.m. at the Islamorada
Fire Station.


A Lobster Monster
worker drives a
pallet of frozen
pork parts across
the Boot
Key Bridge
Wednesday. The
truck slated to
deliver the goods
to the 20th
Street seafood
company missed
its turn and drove
over the fragile
bridge at more
than twice its
10-ton weight limit.

formula is based upon call vol-
umes for residential units, and
upon square footage for commer-
cial space.
He said homeowners could be
looking at between $50 and $100
annually for an assessment that
would help the county catch up
on vital infrastructure, including
new fire trucks, stations and per-
sonnel.
"We want to be sure we put in
relief mechanisms for very low
and fixed incomes," he said, "and
we're looking at possible types of
properties to exempt. We don't
want to rock people's budgets."
The slate of new planning and
building fees approved at the reg-
ular monthly commission meet-
ing in Key West could add up to
$2.5 million to the county
reserves, which County Clerk
Danny Kolhage has warned need
to be shored up.
In a Sept. 19 meeting,
Kolhage warned that if spending
in the current fiscal year is not
curtailed, the county's reserves
will be $10 million below what
they should be.
Willi disagrees with Kolhage's
assessment, and he plans to give
his own assessment during a Nov.
7 County Commission workshop
in Key Largo.
Willi said fund balances have
traditionally been rollover money
- anything not spent in one fis-
cal year went into this general pot
of money, and the next year
expenses were paid out of it.
"We need to set aside a dis-
tinct reserve," he said. "One
that's not part of the budget any-
more, a separate fund."

Convicted rapist
facing 25 years

A Key West man was convict-
ed Thursday of abducting a 23-
year-old tourist, telling her he
was a police officer, then hand-
cuffing and raping her in
February 2006, according to the
Monroe County State Attorney's
Office.
Jean C. Miclisse, a Haitian
national, lured the young
Kentucky woman into his car
after finding her lost cell phone
in a Duval Street' rlighttlub;,-pios-


ecutors say
Miclisse, 29, drove the
woman to a remote spot and,
flashing a fake police badge,
handcuffed her and raped her. He
then dropped her off at the Key
West Waffle House.
A jury took less than two
hours to convict Miclisse of sex-
ual battery, a second-degree
felony, and false imprisonment
and impersonating a law enforce-
ment officer, both third-degree
felonies.
Sentencing is set for Nov.'30.
Miclisse faces a maximum of 25
year-sin'prisoft. '


Keynoter


Past fund balances rolling over
from one year to another were as
high as $20 million, but that fig-
ure was misleading, he said.
New fees and assessments
would, in a perfect world, equate
to a property tax cut, but tax


Homeowners
could be
looking at
between $50
and $100
annually for
an assessment
that would
help the
county catch
up on vital
infrastructure.

reform legislation has changed
the playing field, Willi said.
"In this county, with the infra-
structure we lack, we'll probably
be looking at these fees to add
additional monies to the tax base
rather than roll back ad valorem
taxes."
The new planning and build-
ing fees increase a variety of
application fees .anywhere from
$20 to $10,000. They go into
effect Nov. 1.
If a fire assessment is imple-
mented, it likely won't go into
effect until at least January, Willi
said.

'An absolute scam'


ADA / From 1

Recently, Conway defended
businesses in Luani's Plaza in
Key West after a lawsuit was
filed May 2007 against them for
not meeting requirements of the
Americans with Disabilities Act
of 1990, which mandates dis-
abled customers have proper
access to facilities.
He also represented Neptune
Designs at 301 Duval St., which
settled with owner Jay Pfahl for
$100,000 in legal fees and com-
pliance.
"There has been a great
improvement, great change,"
Conway said of the island since
ADA was enacted. But those
improvements don't come with-
out a problem: lack of notice.
"Even though the ADA does-
n't require a letter, it's the right
thing to do."
Many businesses up and down
the Keys say the more the 50 ADA
lawsuits Michelle Wisniewski
filed might not have been neces-
sary had they received notice of
non-compliance beforehand.
Wisniewski says notices were
sent out in 1991 and 16 years is
plenty of time for businesses to
understand and adhere to ADA
requirements.
Conway chooses to defend
clients like Pfahl because while
he's "not willing to fight compli-
ance, I am willing to fight greedy
lawyers."
Wisniewski, who uses a wheel-
chair and is not an attorney, says
she receives no money from litiga-
tion. Her lawyers, however, do.
The plaza includes Tong's
Garden, optician Roger Otto and
AIDS Help which Wisniewski

Opinion


Legislature keeps on

digging a deeper hole

Back in April, we editorialized about tax-relief efforts under-
way in Tallahassee and noted there was little help for small-busi-
ness owners and renters in the plan then being offered.
Well, it took six months, but the Legislature appears to be lis-
tening to this and other voices around the state that found the
first pass on tax reform did more harm than good.
Wednesday, a group of Democrats in the Florida House
advanced a compromise plan that specifically sets a limit on
annual increases in assessments for taxable value of second
homes, commercial properties and rental properties.
That proposal, authored by Rep. Ron Saunders, would set the
bar at 7 percent annually, higher than the 3 percent cap now
attached to homesteaded residential property under Florida's
Save Our Homes constitutional amendment.
The St. Petersburg Times, in an editorial Wednesday, singled
out Saunders' proposal as a "reasonable" approach to equalizing
tax burden and tax relief.
However, partisan politics being what it is, the Republican-
controlled House voted a 3 percent cap on non-homesteaded
property, the Times noted, "without a clue about the cost."
But differences between the Senate and House approach to tax
relief replayed on Thursday, with the House leaving town, end-
ing negotiations to close gaps between House and Senate ver-
sions of tax reform.
With all this hurry up, then slow down, and big egos at play,
we fear more bad policy with unknown consequences may be
the outcome.
Lots of questions are being raised, including portability and
bigger breaks for seniors.
Portability would permit homeowners to keep their Save Our
Homes tax advantage when they move. This may be key to gain-
ing enough support from voters.
But there are questions about whether that fairly solves the
inequity questions that triggered the whole debate in the first
place.
And there were further concerns about the hit coming for edu-
cation funding, which the Senate plan leaves at close to $1.2 bil-
lion.
In the meantime, Gov. Charlie Crist's tax-reform package,
which would double homestead exemptions, got nowhere this
week.
True tax reform can't be done in a rushed special session with
an Oct. 29 deadline to get a tax reform amendment on the
January statewide ballot.
We repeat the warning from our April editorial, which quoted
veteran Monroe County Property Appraiser Ervin Higgs
"They're hoping this will get them out of a hole. But they're just
.digging it deeper."

Government employees' equity should govern pay


EDITOR:
Monroe County Appraiser Ervin Higgs advises
me my.property is worth $190,521.00 more this year
than last year. After the wow factor, I examined the
effect on myself.
The mortgage did not go up one whit. Insurance
will not go up unless I choose to purchase more cov-
erage. Taxes cannot go up more than the 3 percent
under the Save Our Homes constitutional provisions.
The conclusion is as a homesteaded homeowner, the
appraisal increase will have minimum effect on my
cost of living.
I suspect the great majority of teachers, policemen
and other employees of the county are all homestead-
ed homeowners also. Therefore, an increase in
salaries of current employees based on changes in


appraised value is not merited. If the appraised value
went down, do you think they would accept a reduc-
tion in salary? The only people affected will be new
hires who have to establish residency.
'A better solution would be to use the funds for the
unmerited increase for existing employees to pur-
chase properties or down payments on properties.
The county and School Board would then have a
non-salary benefit to offer new hires for a long-term
contract as an inducement for employment.
The current benefits program will accrue across
the board to the employees and managers who nego-
tiate the contracts. They will endure forever as retire-
ment costs, which will ever be increasing.

Wilma's a memory,

abandoned cats are not

EDITOR:
The second anniversary of Hurricane Wilma's
devastation of our beautiful Keys is upon us.
Life is pretty much back to normal for everyone
except for the cats that were abandoned by residents
who moved away after the storm. Since the flood,
Forgotten Felines has been working diligently
throughout the Middle Keys to trap, spay or neuter
and release or adopt out the abandoned cats to pre-
vent them from reproducing and crowding our
streets.
In the past two years, Forgotten Felines has
trapped and spayed or neutered more than 600 cats in
the area. The efforts are working. There are many
areas in Marathon and Big Pine Key where the cat
populations are controlled, safe and fed. Forgotten
Felines is ready to assist with trapping and financial
assistance for spaying and neutering as needed to
keep the abandoned cat population under control.
Here are ways you can help Forgotten Felines
continue to do its valuable work:
+ Purchase "Wilma the Witch" DVDs for sale at
Richard Warner's law office, 12221 Overseas
Highway, Marathon; and Food for Thought in
Gulfside Village in Marathon.

sources.
I met with Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who clearly
understood the analogy of our economic reality to the
Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The combined
effect of the mandated sewers, insurance, taxes and a
soft real estate market could be financial hardship or
ruin for many. I specifically requested a line-item
appropriation for the authorized spending for waste-
water, grants and low-interest funding sources for
those who finance sewer-related expenses.
Staff from the offices of Sen. Mel Martinez, Sen.
Bill Nelson and Gov. Charlie Crist also met with me.
They were generous with their time, paid close atten-
tion to our concerns and recorded our specific
requests to work with our state and local representa-
tives to secure an appropriation in the upcoming
budget and affect other financial relief strategies that
will, we trust, mitigate the economic threat facing
Monroe County.
RoL-Lehtinen made an immediate, firm commit-
ment to work for us. Martinez's response the follow-
ing day, that he is on board to secure funding for the
wastewater systems, was reassuring.
Thank you to Rep. Ros-Lehtinen and Sen.
Martinez for their concern, positive response and
continued efforts on. our behalf to secure funding for
the wastewater infrastructure.

The letter writer says he sees few things in the air lately
and intimates- Mosquito Control is responsible. Birds
like this osprey are pretty common in the Lower Keys.

Birds lacking on Big Pine
EDITOR:
As our rainy season draws to a close, I offer my deep-
est appreciation to everyone at the Florida Keys Mosquito
Control District for the wonderful job they have done this
year. I live in Port Pine Heights on Big Pine Key and we
have been virtually mosquito-free all season. I cannot
remember an evening when the trucks came through the
neighborhood spraying.
On the down side, not only do I not see any mosquitoes
buzzing about, I do not see much of anything flying in my
neighborhood. We have gone from mosquito-free to
insect-free, no-see-ums notwithstanding. In its zeal, has
Mosquito Control managed to kill everything that flies? I
am not sure that's such a good thing.

Keys Mosquito Control
staffer goes out of his way
EDITOR:
I just would like to mention a [Florida Keys
Mosquito Control District] employee who is doing an
excellent job.
His mosquito-spray truck comes by here and it is a
welcome visit. Instead of quickly looping through the
streets in our homeowners park, he takes the time and
extra effort to spray in hard-to-reach areas. If the
agency has a reward program (something like employ-
ee of the month), I would like to nominate this
employee.

All the Keys need to keep

pressure on D.C. for sewer money


I recently had the opportunity to join with a
group of 15 delegates representing virtually all of
the entities in the Florida Keys charged with pro-
viding advanced wastewater treatment by 2010
and their quest for federal funding for these proj-
ects in Washington, D C.
The delegation met over two and a half days
with senators Mel Martinez and Bill Nelson;
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and staff from repre-
sentatives Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Lincoln
Diaz-Balart and Kerry Meeks; staff from the
White House Office of Management and Budget;
the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration's National Marine Sanctuary
Program; U.S. Army Corps of Engineers; both
Senate and House energy and water appropria-
tions committees; and Gov. Charlie
Crist's Office all of whom are
players in this complex effort.
Before I summarize these discus-
sions, we must understand both why
we are in this situation and the scope
and scale of this project.
The Florida Keys are both an Area
of Critical State Concern and great
national significance. We are virtually -
surrounded by federally owned and
managed parks, sanctuaries, refuges
and ecosystems from Everglades and
Biscayne national parks, the Great
White Heron National Wildlife Brian
Refuge, Dry Tortugas National Park of Mar(
and the Florida Keys National Marine lifelong
Sanctuary. the Ke
By virtue of both our unique geo- mas
graphic and regulated position, the biolob
citizens of the Keys have been tasked Floridc
with helping preserve and even Universit
restore our natural resources to their bro
former glory. Our nearshore waters ColdwE
and our critical reef tract are being Schrr
'damaged by our very presence and
that of the 4 million tourists attracted Es
annually to our federally protected
treasures.
Our wastewater has been shown to contribute
to the deterioration of our water quality and the
health of the third largest reef tract in the world,
which are the backbone of our economy.
Having grown up in the Keys, I can attest to
the fact that our water is not as clean, the reef not
as vibrant and fishing not as good as it once was.
The cost to provide AWT, however, is stagger-
ing estimated at about $1 billion, or a little
more than $13,000 for every man, woman and
child who call the Keys home without
addressing stormwater, which is also our respon-
sibility.
To meet these AWT standards, we will have to
decommission thousands of working septic sys-
tems and dysfunctional cesspits and hundreds of
small sewage treatment systems that would be
perfectly adequate anywhere else in Florida or,


the U.S. but do not and cannot be retrofitted to
meet these stringent standards, which remove
most of the harmful nutrients that are contribut-
ing to the decline of our water quality and reef.
Our AWT standards are the strictest standards
mandated anywhere in the country and it is esti-
mated the cost to provide AWT treatment
accounts for $250 million to $350 million of the
$1 billion cost of central sewage. On top of that,
the average monthly bill per household will like-
ly be twice the Florida average, placing a signifi-
cant ongoing financial burden on Keys residents
even after the systems are built.
It is not fair or reasonable to expect that the
75,000 residents of the Florida Keys should be
expected to shoulder the burden of a $1 billion
project to protect assets that benefit
the entire nation. The federal govern-
ment recognized this and authorized
$100 million in 2000 for water-quality
projects in the Keys, but that authori-
zation has never been funded.
The contingent that pleaded our
case in Washington was effective in
delivering the message and it was
heard in all quarters. There is recogni-
tion of the dire condition of our reef
Sand a sense of obligation to help even
Sin the face of a fiscally strapped fed-
Scmitt eral budget.

er for requesting that he include $29 million
ell Banker as the first installment on the $100
itt Real million authorization in his budget for
2008, which he has declared the Year
tate. of the Coral Reef.
We all need to join the chorus and
continue to lobby Washington and Tallahassee
for funding to save our reef. 2010 is fast-
approaching and without necessary money, this
important and needed project has little chance of
meeting the looming deadline.
The alternative is not an attractive one. Without
clear water and a healthy reef to support our
tourist economy, we will find it difficult to com-
pete for tourist dollars.
The Keys have been resilient throughout histo-
ry reinventing themselves as times changed from
the years of wrecking to those of commercial
fishing to our current tourist-based economy. The
common thread, however, has always been our
water and reef.
Without a healthy environment, it will be diffi-
cult for our economy to survive and prosper,
therefore, the initiative for AWT funding is criti-
cal to our future survival.

Arsons burn investigators' time


Burglaries may
be connected
to three fires
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbunie@keysreporter.com

Investigators from the state
Fire Marshal's Office and the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
met Friday with local fire offi-
cials to pursue an inquiry into a
Thursday arson spree.
Fire broke out at three Upper
Keys waterfront homes, all of
which had signs of being bur-
glarized, within about four hours
Thursday.
Sheriff's Office investigators
believe the fires are connected
and may have been set deliber-
ately, spokeswoman Deputy
Becky Herrin said.
All three homes were unoccu-
pied when deputies responded,
and no injuries were reported.
Fighting a total of four fires
from Wednesday evening to
early Thursday morning made
for one of the busiest days fight-
ing structure fires in the history
of the Key Largo Volunteer Fire


Rescue Department, Chief
Sergio Garcia said.
Firefighters from Islamorada,
Key Largo and Monroe County,
as well as sheriff's deputies,
responded to the three suspected
arsons from 1:48 a.m. to 6:01
a.m. Two were at homes near
mile marker 87 on Plantation
Key, one bayside and one ocean-.
side, and one was oceanside near
mile marker 100 in Key Largo.
Reports said a passerby called
911 at 1:46 a.m. to report a fire at
an oceanfront home at 87201
Old 'Highway. Firefighters and
deputies reached the blaze to
find flames had fully engulfed
the estate home.
"In the first [fire] the building
was pretty much gutted out,"
said Lt. Geo Toth of the
Islamorada Fire Rescue
Department. "It was burnt pretty
bad."
An alarm call at 4:06 a.m.
alerted Sheriff's Office dispatch-
ers to the second fire, at the
bayfront home at 154 Plantation
Blvd. Deputies say they saw
flames when they arrived.
It appeared someone had


pried open a ground-level door
to enter the house, according to
Herrin. A caretaker for the home
said an unknown number of flat-
screen televisions were taken
from inside.
Toth said damage to the
house was relatively minor.
"We were able to knock down
the area of the original fire," he
said. "There was minor smoke
and water damage."'
Toth called the first house "a
total loss," and the second "a
total save."
Another fire was discovered
just before 6 a.m., when a deputy
patrolling near mile marker 100
smelled smoke. He found the
fire at 542 Ocean Cay Drive, in a
gated enclave of oceanfront
homes built on a former airstrip
east of Port Largo.
"Because of that deputy's
persistence to figure out where
the smell of smoke was coming
from, he was able to notify dis-
patch, who notified us," Garcia
said.
Garcia said fire damage was
confined to part of the three-
story waterfront home, but
smoke damage extended
throughout the house.

Sheriff's Office reports say
there was evidence of tampering
to the home's electric meter and
alarm system. The front door
had been forced open and a rear
sliding glass door was found
open.
Garcia said the chaotic night
was unusual for Key Largo fire-
fighters.
"It was difficult because our
firefighters were beat. They
were exhausted from fighting
two other fires that evening."

Key West is offering Monroe
County a 75 percent discount on
its stormwater bill, but county
officials aren't jumping at the
offer.
The City Commission and
County Commission met in joint
session Wednesday at the Harvey
Government Center to try to
reach an agreement over runoff
collection fees at Key West
International Airport.
"We could sit here and argue
'til the cows go home," Key West
Mayor Morgan McPherson said.
"I would suggest [we] consider
giving specific instructions to our
city manager and ask him to meet
with the county administrator and
for the two of them to hammer
something out and come up with
a formal resolution."
For years, the county has
balked at a monthly bill of nearly
$20,000 to treat stormwater
runoff at the airport.
In the offer outlined Wednes-
day, city Utilities Director David
Fernandez said the city would
consider reducing the bill by
more than $5,000 a month based
on reassessing the "impervious
surface" at the airport and by
adding a financial credit for
stormwater systems already in
place.
Fees are based upon the
square footage that is covered
either by buildings or paving,
according to Fernandez.
"We're willing to give the
county a credit for its efforts,
even capital investments on
county roads, as an offset to the
airport and any other storm water
i, i C, ( I : iiYL 1 -u'Y' C'.


Garcia said. "We haven't had
back-to-back fires in structures
like that."
The night before, Key Largo
firefighters extinguished a small
fire in a house on Seagate
Boulevard. Investigators don't
believe that fire is related to the
other three.
Herrin said "we're looking at
all the possibilities" when asked
if police believe burglars may
have 'accessed the waterfront
homes by boat.


bill," he said.
Assistant County Attorney
Pedro Mercado told the commis-
sioners the airport should be
exempt from the fee because it
generates income for the city.
"If the airport had to pay
stormwater fees," he said, "the
county would have to take a look
at the rates and charges we
charge the airlines, which could
result in an increase in the cost of
tickets."
The meeting briefly threat-
ened to become tit for tat when
County Commissioner George
Neugent noted the county has
shared gas taxes with the city and
recently paid $6 million in coun-
ty funds toward the new $31 mil-
lion airport terminal.
City Commissioner Bill Verge
answered that the city has waived
fees on the new county court-
house in Key West and picked up
the tab for school crossing
guards.
"The bottom line is we have to
pay for this stormwater," he said.
"After we sink the
Vandenberg, we'll be making
millions more in Key West,"
county Mayor Mario Di Gennaro
said. The city and county have
kicked in millions of dollars
combined to scuttle the former
military ship 6 miles off Key
West as an artificial reef.
If the city and county cannot
come up with a stormwater
agreement, the issue will have to
go to mediation, Fernandez said.
The two commissions did not set
a timeline for an agreement to be
reached.

Why do they have to circle

What is the likelihood of one
crashing?
These are just some of the
questions Navy officials hope to
answer for Keys residents
Tuesday during the AICUZ
Awareness Workshop at the
DoubleTree Grand Key Resort
on North Roosevelt Boulevard in
Key West. The workshop runs
from 4 to 7 p.m. and will bring
together experts to address vari-
ous aspects of the Air Installation
Compatible Use Zone, known as
AICUZ.
For an AICUZ, documents
and maps recommend the kinds
of land use the county should
allow around Naval Air Station
Key West based upon safety and
noise levels.
It's considered a zoning tool
for local government, and the
Navy is asking the Monroe
County Commission to accept
the newest noise and safety con-
tours outlined in the document,
which was released in March.
The county is now.working under
an AICUZ document that was
drafted in 1977.


only.
One group, Lamadrid
Construction, dropped out of the
running at the last minute due to
concerns with procuring mort-
gages for potential buyers in the
current market.
Council had the option to
make its selection between the
two developers Wednesday, but
elected to postpone the decision
until Tuesday's regularly sched-
uled meeting, which starts at 5:30
p.m. at the Marathon
Government Center.
Biscayne, an affordable-hous-
ing group out of Miami, made its
presentation to council first. It
proposed a development called
Tarpon Run, with 28 two-bed-
room, two-bathroom units and 12
three-bedroom, two-bathroom


New contours have raised
concern in some neighborhoods,
especially on Stock Island and
Geiger Key, where residents say
new flight patterns have
increased the noise levels.
Geiger Key resident Paul
Caruso has been among the most
vocal critics of NAS Key West.
He launched a Web site in oppo-
sition to the new AICUZ docu-
ment as well as sound levels ema-
nating from the base.
NAS spokesman Jim Brooks
said the workshop will answer
these concerns and more.
County officials have been
slow in adopting the new AICUZ
document into the county's plan-
ning process in part because
Growth Management Director
Andrew Trivette has warned
against it.
He says that because the new
contours restrict residential con-
struction in some areas, the coun-
ty could be looking at lawsuits
from landowners unable to build
if they buy into the AICUZ.

ing, the County Commission has

units.
The two-bedroom units would
be 852 square feet and would rent
for $823 per month, while the
three-bedroom units would be
916 square feet at $951 monthly.
Biscayne Group Principal
Michael Cox said during the
presentation the target tenants are
those earning 60 percent of the
area median income. In
Marathon, the area median
household income is $61,000.
Four of the units would be
reserved for those earning 30 per-
cent of the area median income
and would rent for between $411
and $475 monthly.
Cox pointed out the salaries of
several Monroe County employ-
ment positions, such as firefight-
ers and policeman, saying they
were his target tenants.
"These are the working peo-
ple, the backbone of any commu-
nity," he said,, noting criminal
background checks would be
mandatory for any tenant.
Cox told council the project
would be funded entirely by tax
credits and that the group would
require no money from the city.
He said work could begin in
January 2009 and be completed

by the end of that year.
The group works with Royal
Concrete Concepts out of West
Palm Beach to produce what Cox
told council are safe and energy-
efficient homes. He said at the
meeting he would not build the
type of wood-frame homes pro-
posed by Old Town.
"Because of the increased cost
of construction, you can no
longer truly provide home owner-
ship in a type of product we
would be proud to build and
make the number work," Cox
told the Keynoter. Old Town's
homes would be "stick-built
housing in the Florida Keys,
which is an area always impacted
by hurricanes. It starts to degrade
over time and it is not safe."
Old Town Key West
Development made the second
presentation, titled Palm
Gardens, to council. The group is
headed by lifelong Keys resident
Ed Swift.
Swift told the council his pro-
posal is to build homes deeded
affordable in perpetuity. He point-
ed to various reasons, for home
ownership, such as a lifetime
commitment to the community.
"It will stop the hemorrhaging

of people from your community
you just can't afford to lose,"
Swift said. The target owners
would be those earning between
100 and 160 percent of the area
median income.
"There's a huge gap between
someone who can afford a
$250,000 home and a $400,000
home. Even if [a couple] are
making $100,000 a year, you
can't afford it the payments
are huge," he told the Keynoter.
Old Town proposed two-bed-
room, 1.5-bathroom, two-bed-
room, two-bathroom and three-
bedroom, two-bathroom homes
ranging in price from $206,000 to
$289,000. They would range in
square footage from 940 to 1275.
Owners would also be respon-
sible for a $100 homeowner's
association fee, $30 of which
would go toward a group cable
rate.
City Planning Director Fred
Gross said he believes Swift
builds quality homes.
"These things will stand up to
everything. They pass all the reg-
ulations for building [and] they
hold up to 160 mile-per-hour
winds," Swift said.

Hydro power a possibility


Entrepreneur
wants to capture
water's.energy
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A proposal to use Florida
Keys tidal currents to generate
electricity merits more considera-
tion, say members of a local
marine advisory panel.
Douglas Bedgood, founder of
the nonprofit Florida Keys Hydro
Power Research Corp., will out-
line his plans at the December
meeting of the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary
Advisory Council.
Bedgood appeared briefly at
the council's Tuesday meeting in
Ocean Reef but asked to return
later to make a more detailed
presentation.
"The first proposed tidal tur-
bine farm, to be the largest in the
world, is planned for Bahia
Honda Channel south of the
Seven Mile Bridge," Bedgood
said in a written outline.
"We're willing to listen," said
Richard Grathwohl, a Marathon
charter captain who serves on the
advisory board to the Keys sanc-
tuary. "It doesn't involve coal, so
it sounds good."
The sea-turbine plan requires
a long list of state and federal
environmental approvals since it
involves state-owned ocean floor,

may affect marine life.

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
on Wednesday talked about
when it would talk about City
Manager Mike Puto's goals
and objectives in the future.
At specially called meeting,
Mayor Chris Bull proposed
monthly, meetings with Puto
because he "needs clear direc-
tion of what the majority of


City Council wants him to
accomplish in regards to initia-
tive and policy implementa-
tion."
The idea seemed to be less-
than-well received by
Councilman Mike Cinque and
Vice Mayor Marilyn Tempest.
"I feel like we gave Mike a
list of stuff, let him do it,"
Tempest said, referring to


wording in Puto's recently
signed six-month contract
extension. The contract states
various goals the council wants
to see accomplished within 30,
60 and 90 days of the contract's
Oct. 1 beginning.
Cinque was unusually ani-
mated, saying he feels the
council could address issues
with Puto at any meeting.
Bull said he feels it would
be easier for Puto to report to


the council if the six of them sit
down together as opposed to
him contacting council mem-
bers separately.
"The 30-, 60- and 90-[day
goals] are totally separate.
Those are about Mike being a
better manager," Bull said. He
said he feels a monthly meeting
would be used to address issues
current to regularly scheduled
City Council meetings at the
time.


Councilman Don Vasil sup-
ported Bull's idea saying, "If
we come prepared with a list of
priorities, it won't take long."
The council ultimately
adopted Vasil's suggestion that
the Puto meetings be held one
hour prior to the last regularly
scheduled council meeting of
every month, at 4:30 p.m.
The first one is scheduled to
take place Nov. 27.

Sewer details leak


City, company
give update
on construction
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Staff from both the city of
Marathon and Weiler Engineer-
ing gave a pre-construction
update Thursday to residents liv-
ing in area four of the city's pro-
posed citywide sewer system.
Area four comprises seven
neighborhoods between 39th and
60th streets on both sides of
Overseas Highway. It will be the
first of seven areas to be complet-
ed, with construction set to begin
Nov. 5.
Weiler Project Manager Dan
Saus began by giving the audi-
ence at the Marathon Garden
Club an overview of what they
can expect to see. construction-
wise in their neighborhoods,
including photos of the various


size vacuum pits to be installed.
Saus also explained the
process by which trenches for
piping will be dug. Trenchers dig
a hole, the dirt is pushed back in
that. hole and removed again
when workers are ready to install
the pipe, he said.
Weiler Project Manager Mike
Giardullo then informed the
crowd of the benefit of installing
stormwater piping along with
sewer pipes.
He said Weiler would install
more than 250 catch basins
intended to gather water after
storms and "try to intercept it from
flowing directly into canals.".
Giardullo also explained that
depending on what the plans call
for, contractors would saw
through concrete driveways,
brick pavers and any foliage at
the right-of-way line.
"If he does that, it will be
destroyed," he said.
Giardullo did note residents

would have "plenty of notice"
prior to construction taking place
near their homes. He said a con-
struction schedule would be
made available and posted on the
city's Web site, www.ci
.marathon.fl.us.
Other issues addressed during
a question-and-answer session
with residents included:
Individual cost. Vice Mayor
Marilyn Tempest told residents
the city is trying to keep connec-
tion fees in the $5,000 range. She
said the city has committed capi-
tal infrastructure funds and is
working toward securing the 40
percent state commitment called
for in the city's comprehensive
plan.
Tempest also informed the
audience that construction on
area six (Coco Plum) of the proj-
ect might not proceed if more
funding is not procured.
"We do have a fail safe to bail
if that is the appropriate thing to
do," she said.
Total project cost. Staff said
the total wastewater project cost
would be roughly $80 million,
with another $40 million for
stormwater. They said stormwa-
ter would cost twice as much as a
separate project.
Rights of way. Public
Works Manager Walter
McDowell said the average right
of way in the city is 50 feet,
though it varies from 10 to 100 in
certain places.
Plans are available to be
viewed by residents at Weiler's

Acting chief is permanent


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Bob Eadie has his hands full,
but after five months as acting
director of the Monroe County
Health Department, he's ready
to roll up his sleeves.
The Monroe County
Commission on Wednesday
gave its blessing to Eadie's
appointment as permanent
administrator of the department.
"Your public health is a local
issue," he told the commission.
"I want you to know that I'm
available. I really do want you
all and the rest of the county to
feel the Health Department is
theirs, not some obscure -state
,office."
Thursday, Eadie told the
Keynoter the biggest task at
hand is rebuilding the Health
Department's infrastructure.
"You have good people
doing their jobs well that
haven't had all the support and
direction as to how they could
do their jobs," he said.
In April, the inspector gener-
al of the Florida Department of
Health released results of an
investigation alleging some

Tip to cops leads
to two drug arrests

Two Marathon men were
arrested Thursday after they
reportedly were caught return-
ing to the Keys from
Homestead with drugs.
Deputy Becky Herrin from
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office said detectives had
received a tip that Jerry
Anderson, 29, and Michael
Aquino, 27, would be traveling
to Homestead to pick up
cocaine Thursday afternoon and
be returning to the Keys. The
Florida Highway Patrol spotted
their car southbound on the 18-
Mile Stretch at 5:40 p.m.
Troopers stopped it for speeding
at mile marker 93.
Detectives arrived and,
inside the car, reportedly found
19 grams of cocaine and 8.6
grams of marijuana.
Aquino was charged with
possession of cocaine and
Anderson with possessing
cocaine and marijuana. "' i!'

relations to
misappropriation of funds and
refusal to serve some patients.
"That investigation is a blue-
print for what needs to be
done," Eadie said. "What I real-
ly see is a disconnect, in so
many ways. The issues that
were here 18 years ago are still
here: lack of procedures, staff
and resources. Those have to be
resolved before we can move
forward."
Eadie formerly was deputy
secretary of the Florida
Department of Health, responsi-
ble for overseeing everything
from daily operations to annual
budgets.
The past several heads of the
Monroe County Health
Department have been medical
doctors. Eadie, however, has a
doctorate of jurisprudence a
law degree from Vanderbilt
University.
Health Department spokes-
woman Gerri White said his
salary is $138,000 annually, as
was his predecessor's.
Eadie said he's pulled
together a strong emergency
preparedness plan and estab-
lished new and strong avenues
of communication between the
county's emergency manage-

ment network and the Health
Department.
He also wants to strengthen
the presence of the Health
Department throughout the
entire county. Though the main
office is in Key West, the
department has facilities in
Marathon and Plantation Key.
"Monroe County is a lot
more than just west of Cow Key
Channel," he said. "There are
facilities in other parts of the
Keys that need more attention
and assets brought to them."
Eadie said he is already
seeking ways to maximize
resources by meeting with
Monroe County Fire Chief
Wayne Hinnant to see if there's
a way to share medically trained
personnel. He'd like to do the
same with the School District
regarding school nurses.
"We need to do what we can
to leverage the resources we
have," he said.

Councilman says
he can live with
slower dock plan
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon City Councilman
Don Vasil says he won't let a cool
response to his proposal to add
190 boats slips to Boot Key
Harbor stop him from exploring
the possibilities there.
Vasil has sponsored a resolu-
tion for Tuesday's City Council
meeting agenda calling for City
Manager Mike Puto to conduct a
cost analysis and feasibility study
of expanding the City of
Marathon Marina by adding
more slips and possibly including
retail activities.
Preliminary plans called for
the 190 slips to be installed in two
phases, but Vasil says he would
be willing to take a slower
approach.
"The permitting process takes
so long that we have to have a
vision. Even if we built 30 at a
time and it took 10 years, we're at
least looking forward," he said.
Planning Director Fred Gross
said the city would need to hire a
firm experienced in designing
dockage to evaluate the harbor.
"If you look at what might be
needed and what might be desir-
able, then somebody might devel-
op a plan phasing in some kind of
development with the amenities
that would [attract] these kinds of
boats here," Gross said.
Vasil said the proposed slips
would be intended for the "inter-
mediate cruiser," capable of


accommodating up to a 60-foot
boat.
"Typically, city marinas com-
plement the private sector and it's
-a great working relationship. This
really complements what the
Faro [Blanco Marine Resort]
plans are for the mega-yachts and
the high end," he said.
Other agenda items for the
meeting, which starts at 5:30 p.m.
at the Marathon Government
Center, include:
A resolution sponsored by
Vasil calling for a reduction in
City Manager Mike Puto's
spending threshold from $25,000
to $5,000. It would mean any
purchase over that amount must
be brought before the council.
Vasil said the resolution is not
intended to "cut [Puto's] wings at
all" and will "put any criticism on
items on the council and not the
city manager."
"I feel it's the responsibility to
do oversight on these issues, not
to inhibit the city manager from
being able to spend, but to make
sure every dollar is spent wisely,"
he said.
"I don't mind bringing the
items to them, [but] we have to
make sure the time frame doesn't
drag on a contract," Puto said.
An. ordinance dealing with
the city's five-year capital
improvement plan. Gross said the
Planning Department is mandat-
ed annually to come up with it.
"If you take a look at it, you'll
notice there's nothing there
except for ongoing sewer work,"
he said. "We don't have any long-
term plan."
A resolution declaring a


council commitment to waive
fees for zoning or future-land-
use-map applications necessitat-
ed by error in maps approved by
the council.
Gross said the resolution
means individuals would have
the opportunity to have those fees
waived if council determines
their lots are zoned incorrectly.

Keys man convicted
of sexual battery

A Marathon man was convict-
ed Tuesday of sexual battery and
sexual. molestation, both second-
degree felonies, on the 13-year-
old daughter of his girlfriend.
Prosecutors say that on Jan.
29, 2006, Eniel Planas, 41, of
Coco Plum Road had been invit-
ed for the first time to spend the
night at a new girlfriend's apart-

her.
Patrick McCullah, who prose-

looking at a prison term of at
least 15 -years -- and maybe
more depending on prior crimes.
Planas is scheduled for sen-

County lets state
land ruling stand

The Monroe County
Commission on Wednesday
decided not to appeal a state
order that will make the county
revamp its proposed tier land-
mapping system.
In a unanimous vote, the
board put to rest an ongoing bat-
tle between the county and two
environmental groups that said
the system does not do enough to
protect the Keys from overdevel-
opment.
The tier system categorizes
vacant parcels based upon envi-
ronmental sensitivity, Tier 1
being the most sensitive and Tier
3 the most desirable for building.
The system is designed to replace
the county's rate-of-growth ordi-
nance, which controls growth
based upon a point system and
hurricane evacuation times.

Lower Keys road stays in public hands


Summerland Key
couple sought
abandonment
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

A band of residents went
home happy Wednesday after
the Monroe County Commission
agreed unanimously to retain
ownership of 4th Street on
Summerland Key.


Nearby property owners had
asked the county to abandon a
triangular portion of the road on
the waterfront' adjoining their
land, but their neighbors argued
the public road provides essen-
tial access to the water.
Twenty-two signed a petition
asking the county not to hand it
over to a private interest.
"This is a tiny little beach,"
Summerland resident Ben
Ianotta said. "It's clearly not


Bahia Honda, but it's all we
have. It's right there in the
neighborhood; you don't need
mom or dad to give you a ride,
you can hop on your bike and get
there. There is real public value
to this property."
"This beach is what makes
our neighborhood a neighbor-
hood," Mary VandenBrook said.
"Kids ride their bikes there."
"As a taxpayer, it's part of my
property and I just don't want to
give it away," Key West resident
Bill Estes said.


Market could go co-op


By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

The Waterfront Market saga
continues.
Once thought to be doomed,
the popular grocery store at the
Key West waterfront, still offi-
cially for sale, has two suitors:
one new and novel, one familiar.
Market owner Buco Pantelis
said Tuesday that Raymond
Vasquez and Allen Perez are
considering buying the business
yet again.
The two investors tried to buy
the market last month, but
Pantelis would not sign a non-
compete agreement that satisfied
them. Pantelis said the way the
deal came about was "ridicu-
lous" and that the two "wanted
me not to be able to stock goods
in Havana, Cuba."
Vasquez said the two simply
won't invest without what he
considers adequate assurance
that Pantelis won't cut into their
business soon after selling the
Market. He said in the past that
he and Perez would buy the store
because they enjoy the produce
and think the business is sound.
But Vasquez said the deal
might yet again fail and that he
does "not want to mislead the
public: as of right now, there is
no deal."
Tuesday's announcement by
Pantelis came at a meeting of
locals interested in turning the
Waterfront Market into a cooper-
ative grocery store. The group is
spearheaded by Richard
Tallmadge, owner of The
Restaurant Store where the
meeting was held, among others.
Before the group of nearly 40
Keys residents, can, turn the.mar-
ket into ;acooperative,,a business


model where frequent shoppers
can become part owners, they
must first raise more than $1
million to purchase the business
from Buco, said Michael
Shields, former Tropic Cinema
director. The group expects to
poll public interest over the
coming weeks to see if it can
raise enough money.
If the group can purchase the
business, they said the lease
Pantelis and the city drew up is
likely unacceptable.
'The Key West Bight
Management District Board
approves all tenant contracts.
Among other complaints, the


group wants a 5 percent increase
in rent to come down. The lease
took nearly three years to negoti-
ate and Pantelis ultimately
agreed to terms, then refused to
sign, deciding instead to close
the business.
"This is the best use for this
community: the answer [from
city government] is not going to
be no," said another organizer
Mike Mongo. "Because we're
not asking," a crowd member
shouted.
Port operations managers,
administrators for the historic
and protected area, maintain
they must advertise and offer the
space if it becomes available
next year.


Attorney David Paul Horan,
representing Gregory and Betty
Klimock, told the commission
that it has taken years for his
clients to get approvals neces-
sary to get this far in the applica-
tion process to get the road aban-
doned.
He argued that the couple
paid to build a rock jetty at the
gite, but acknowledged that it
abuts county-owned land.
"It seems like a lot of people
like to go out there," Mayor
Mario Di Gennaro said. "The
public is speaking."
"What are we thinking?"
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
.asked. "These roads that end in
open water are the only guaran-
teed public access we have. If
we give these up, who know
what will happen in 15, 20, 25
years."
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton said county law pre-
cludes abandoning roads that


end in the water.
Commissioner Dixie Spehar
pointed out that if the county
were to give up the half of the
road requested by the Klimocks,
there would be no stopping the
landowners on the other side of
the street to ask for the remain-
ing portion to be abandoned.
Commissioner Sonny McCoy
moved to deny the request.

Little agreement at forum


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Insults weren't withheld
when Key West mayoral candi-
dates Morgan McPherson and
Jimmy Weekley pitched their
views on hot-button issues to a
crowd of more than 150 specta-
tors at the Doubletree Grand
Key Resort Thursday.
McPherson is closing out his
first two-year term and says
he's not finished. But Weekley,
who served for three consecu-
tive terms until McPherson
defeated him in 2005, says he
wants a chance to fix things he
says have been mismanaged in
local government, such as an
increasingly lax code enforce-
ment department.
At times, Weekley was an
aggressive candidate, accusing
McPherson of "youthful inex-
perience" and saying he's glad
McPherson finally understood
his platform, as Weekley claims
McPherson stole it and mailed it
to voters as his own.
Keynoter Publisher Wayne
Markham moderated the forum,
first allowing McPherson and
Weekley to state their three


strong points what they're
proud of accomplishing in their
mayoral tenures.
McPherson laid out disaster
planning, budget bolstering and
solutions to affordable housing.
He took office three weeks
before Hurricane Wilma hit the
island and, he said, effectively
jumped right into responding to
the storm.
He boasted of his quick
action, with the help of city
commissioners, to bring relief
to island residents, and helping
to hire Fire Chief Craig Marston
as the Emergency Operatiop
Center director this year.
McPherson also claimed the
"budget was $2 million short"
when he took office, and that he
established a quarterly budget
update to keep officials
informed.
In his intro, Weekley high-
lighted his efforts to clean up
Key West, the U.S. Navy's con-
veyance of 33 acres on the
Truman Waterfront to the city
and his efforts to increase
affordable housing.
He cited Manhattan's


Central Park as his vision of
what the Truman Waterfront
property should be 60 per-
cent green space, according the
conveyance original agreement.
Weekley boasted of creating
the Kennedy Drive sports com-
plex and the city's purchase of
the Key West Bight. He later
said the current administration
has allowed the character of that
area to diminish.
One question challenged the
candidates to explain what they
think should be done with the
Southernmost House.
The Duval Street gem's
owner is interested in making
the guesthouse and museum
into a 150-seat restaurant, a pro-
posal met with much opposition
from the house's neighbors.
McPherson didn't provide a
clear position but said it's
important to "keep emotions
separate" from the decision and
come to an agreement "best
suited for the neighborhood."
Weekley opposed the pro-
posal, an answer that received
raucous applause.
"We need to keep commer-
cialization out of our neighbor-
hoods," he said.


Sorry, wrong number?


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Are there Key Westers with-
out cell phones?
That's the question First
American Telecommunications is
quickly answering yes to, and
after the City Commission dis-
cussed a possible five-year exten-
sion with the company Tuesday,
it discovered its hands could be
tied to the telephones for five
more years.
First American is the pay-
phone provider for the island, but
officials question the efficiency
of keeping the nearly 100 phones
in an age when cell phones reign
supreme.
According to city Finance
Director Roger Wittenberg, the
city receives "no revenue from
phone calls the pay phones do
not generate enough from calls to
pay for the line charges and main-
tenance and equipment charges."
The dust collecting on the
phones pose a question for the
city: Are they worth keeping?
Yes,. First American Sales
Director Connie Hersch said.
"You do have to accommo-
date people who don't have cell
phones," she said.
In 2002, BellSouth Corp.
decided to stop service to pay
phones throughout the, city, and
the commission signed a contract
with First American to convert 21
of the pay phones to kiosks with
advertisements.
Some of the kiosks advertise
alcohol, which had people com-
plaining in 2006, even though ads
for alcohol are allowed under
terms of the contract.
"There aren't any wires out
there," Commissioner Bill Verge
said of the South Roosevelt
kiosks. "They're advertising
pedestals. It's just more visual
clutter. We try to keep advertising
down to minimum."
The contract, approved in
2003 and expiring in 2008, has


five one-year company options to
renew. Commissioners Tuesday
night said they'd like to see it end
sooner.
Verge said the phones are not
good tools for revenue, as most
people use cell phones instead of
pay phones.
But City Attorney Shawn
Smith said it's impossible to back
out of the contract early unless
the company is in violation of its
terms, which is now being inves-
tigated.
The contract-requires that
each pay phone be operational at
all times. Officials are unsure if
that's the case.
The company receives its rev-
enue from advertisements posted
at the kiosks and pays the city
$6,500 a year for 13 converted
phone kiosks.
According to a letter written by
Vice President Guy Strempack,
after the other eight are converted,
the annual payment to the city will
rise to $10,500.
Strempack wrote that while
cell phones are popular, business
people, tourists and folks who
can't afford cell-phone monthly
fees still use pay phones.
Strempack was unavailable
this week, but Hersch said the
company has had to adapt to stay
afloat with new technology that
slows business.
Advertising was the answer to
prepaid phone cards and cell
phones. And given the island's
diversity, it wasn't a difficult
sales pitch, Hersch said.
There was a period of time the
call revenue for the company
skyrocketed: Hurricane Wilma in
2005.
"When Hurricane Wilma hit,
the only way to communicate
was through pay phones"
because cell-phone towers were
knocked out of service. "The
majority of our phones were up
and running."

Habitat makes a home


Thompson work
started even
before Wilma
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Wednesday is the two-year
anniversary of Hurricane
Wilma's storm surge overtak-
ing the Keys, leaving residents
like Marguerite Thompson of
Key West with shambles for a
home.
The grateful Bahama
Village resident is now able to
come home to a house almost
fully repaired because of the
generosity she's received from
individuals and organizations,
namely Habitat for Humanity
of the Lower Keys and Key
West.
Today at noon, the group
will hold a dedication at 1009
Thompson St., Thompson's
house a house that was in
poor condition even before the
storm hit. Habitat was repair-
ing it even back then.
But once Wilma came to
the island, shingles were
tossed off her roof and her
wooden floor rotted through.
"I really didn't have the
finances to get this done," she
said of the repairs. "I don't
know any organization so
great."
Thompson, 70, a soft-spo-
ken, sweet-natured woman
with streaks of black and gray
hair, works part-time at Easter
Seals as a receptionist. The
great-grandmother enjoys puz-
zles in her down time.
Inside Thompson's modest
home, consistent with Bahama
Village charm, an old floral
couch holds a decorated pil-
low that reads, "Grandmothers
hold a special place in our
hearts."
The pink walls are bare and
a small fan blows a breeze
across a few open Bibles scat-
tered about her coffee table.
The banter of a television
game show is audible from a
nearby bedroom.
Thompson has a real home,
and probably wouldn't if not
for Habitat.
Keys Federal Credit Union
also loaned a helping hand,
and nearby restaurant Blue
Heaven and the Catholic
Daughters.,-- f St, ,Mary's.,


Church provided meals for
volunteers.
Habitat for Humanity
received a grant from the non-
profit Old Island Restoration
Foundation to complete work
on the outside of the home.
Thompson says volunteers
would often work afternoons,
and came almost every
Saturday to work on the inside
and the outside of her old
Conch home.
Her parents bought the
house in 1943, making the job
of rehabilitating the house
without compromising its
character somewhat of a chal-
lenge.
"A rehab is nothing like
building a new house," con-
struction coordinator Curt
Kniffin said. "Especially a
Conch house."
Kniffin said he is thankful


for every volunteer but jobs
would be done much more
quickly if folks with experi-
ence in carpentry stepped ip
to the plate.
Today is a celebration of
the progress made on
Thompson's home.
"We're putting in a few
plants and doing a little bit of
touch up," volunteer coordina-
tor Susan Miller said.
Habitat for Humanity has
restored 110 Keys homes since
the hurricane and was recently
ranked No. 19 out of 1,732
affiliates in the United States,
Canada and Bermuda in terms
of productivity per capital.
Kniffin is also coordinating
projects on Amelia Street and
trailer-park repairs on Stock
Island.
"If it weren't for Habitat, a
lot of people wouldn't be able
to afford homes," Thompson
said.

One-way roads
in Bahama Village
going two-way
Keynoter Staff

The Key West City
Commission passed a resolu-
tion March 20 to make one-
way streets in Bahama Village
two-ways.
Now.city staff is eyeing the
end of November to enact the
changes. Staff is meeting
Tuesday to nail down logistics.
The one-way streets not
only create inconvenient situa-
tions for drivers, but also put
them in danger, some say.
Some of the streets are so nar-
row that a car and moped can-
not comfortably squeeze by
each other.
"The city is trying to reach
out to the public and give them


ges

ser


notice in advance of the actual
change," said Commissioner
Clayton Lopez, who sponsored
a resolution for the change, "to
cut down on confusion."
Bus routes in Bahama
Village have already been
changed to accommodate the
street modifications, he said.
The redirections:
Petronia from Elizabeth
to Simonton.
Catherine from Simonton
to Thomas.
Amelia from Emma to
Duval.
Virginia from Whitehead

No more parade conflicts


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


I


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



C\ <>


to save AIDS victims and their
families from the uncomfortable
scenario.
World AIDS Day is Dec. 1 and
the parade is held the first
Saturday of each December, so
they conflict every seven years.
The last time it occurred, in 2000,
Walker and political consultant
Brooks White discussed the mat-
ter with .then-City Manager Julio
Avael. The date was changed and
AIDS Help was under the
impression the change would be
permanent.
As a result of the misunder-
standing, Tuesday's resolution
was brought up too late, commis-
sioners said.
"I cannot support it at the 11th
hour," Commissioner Harry
Bethel said.
Commissioner Teri Johnston,
at her first commission meeting,
said the discussion over which
event is more important was turn-
ing her stomach. She said to
avoid further conflicts, the parade
should be rescheduled in future
years.
Commissioners agreed, voting
unanimously on an amended res-


solution.
Bethel created the holiday
parade in 1996, a year after a Big
Coppitt Key minister organized a
parade that excluded gays and
members of other congregations.
Walker said former city offi-
cials and old students of his (he's
a former Monroe County School
District educator] are on the
AIDS Memorial list, and they
day will always touch many peo-
ple in the community.
Also Tuesday:
The commission meeting
had a much different ring to it -
the baritone of Lopez as he belted
Frank Sinatra's "My Way" to
Bethel, who's leaving office after
deciding four four-year terms
were enough.
The commission also appoint-
ed Bethel as vice mayor emeritus.
A bid was granted to
Historic Tours of America for
shuttle service to bring cruise-
ship passengers from the Outer
Mole to downtown Key West.
HTA will receive $2.60 per 80
percent of the passengers aboard
a ship and the same for 50 percent
per crew members aboard. Bethel
dissented.

SA simple misunderstanding
led the Key West City
Commission to allow World
AIDS Day and the annual city
holiday parade to fall on the same
day this year.
This year, that's the last time
it'll happen, commissioners
decided Tuesday.
"I think we were caught by
surprise," AIDS Help Executive
Director Robert Walker said.
"This is a very painful day for
people. But I know [the commis-
sion] made the best decision they
could."
Commissioner Clayton Lopez
presented a resolution to move
the date of the joyous parade to
avoid a conflict with the somber
World AIDS Day commemora-
tion at the Key West AIDS
Memorial.
Many letters were read oppos-
ing the change, mainly from busi-
ness owners who didn't want to
pay the costs that would come
with having to switch the date of
the parade.
Lopez argued that inconve-
niencing a few people is worth it

PRNewswire


Residents of and. visitors to
the Conch Republic now have
access 'to South Florida's fastest
wireless broadband network,
according to AT&T.
The company said
Wednesday its third-generation
3G network has expanded down


to Key West. Officials call it the
fastest wireless broadband net-

pendent wireless research firm.

400 and 700 kilobytes per sec-
ond, with bursts to more than a
megabyte per second. That
means customers using an
AT&T 3G handset can download
a game or ring tone or access e-

used to take.

Let the mayhem begin!


F ans of the flamboyant, it's
here again.
The 10-day Fantasy Fest
2007 started Friday in Key West
and continues with dozens of
events, from the Pet Masquerade
to the Pretenders in Paradise to a
homemade bikini contest to
street fairs, wrapping with the 7
p.m. Oct. 27 parade down Duval
Street and the following day a
much-less raucous Kids Day at
Bayview Park.
This year's theme is
"Gnomes, Toads & White Rabbit
Tea Parties."
For "Gnomes, Toads & White
Rabbit Tea Parties," Fantasy Fest
organizers encourage partici-
pants to draw inspiration from
twisted fairytales, mystical
myths and "Alice's Adventures
in Wonderland." Costumes and
parade floats might recall sinu-
ous swamp creatures, hospitable
hobbits, oversized ogres or white
rabbit revels all presented
with the engagingly offbeat flair
that characterizes the popular
festival.
Though not an official part of
Fantasy Fest, today's Goombay
Fest is considered the traditional
kickoff. It runs from noon to


midnight in the picturesque
Bahama Village neighborhood.
Among the most popular
highlights:
+ Tuesday night's Headdress
Ball. Entrants wearing elaborate
masks and headdresses vie for
cash prizes at this glamorous
gala. It's set for 8 p.m. at the
Southernmost Hotel, 1319 Duval
St. General admission is $30 per
person.
The Pet Masquerade and
Parade is at 5:30 p.m.
Wednesday. Party animals com-
pete for prizes in categories
including the best pet/owner
look-alike. It's at the Westin Key
West Resort & Marina, 245
Front St., before an audience
eager to applaud the animal
antics.
At 8 p.m. Thursday is
Pretenders in Paradise at the Pier
House Resort & Caribbean Spa,
1 Duval St. Pretenders is
renowned as Fantasy Fest's most
elaborate costume competition.
It typically draws amateur and
professional costume designers
from all over the United States
to compete for $10,000 in cash


and prizes. Tickets are $28 per
person.
On Oct. 26, the action
moves to Duval for the annual
Fantasy Fest Street Fair. The
mile-long thoroughfare becomes
an open-air marketplace with
vendors offering feathered masks,
colorful costumes, arts and craft
items, food and libations.
Just before sunset, the
Fairvilla Megastore Masquerade
March is to parade through the
street fair. Costumed and
masked, stepping to the beat of
music and noisemakers, partici-
pants begin at the Key West
Cemetery and travel two routes
through the streets of the island
city's Old Town.
The fest reaches its wildest
pitch Oct. 27 during the Captain
Morgan Fantasy Fest Parade
through Key West's historic
downtown.
Marching groups garbed in
feathered and sequined robes,
Caribbean bands, costumed char-
acters and lavishly decorated
motorized floats some with
moving parts that tower two sto-
ries high converge in an eye-
popping procession cheered by
tens of thousands of spectators.'

that includes Whitehead and
Front streets as well as the entire
length of Duval.
For a complete schedule of
the events more than 30 -
go to www.fantasyfest.net.

Free shuttles
Some 70,000 participants
and viewers are expected for
the 7 p.m. Oct. 27 Fantasy Fest
parade down Duval Street. To
put that in perspective, the
island has only about 25,000
residents, if that.
More than 65 dazzling
floats, some blaring music,
some sporting elaborate crea-
tures of fantasy, are expected.
Captain Morgan and the
Key West Department of
Transportation have teamed up
to provide free bus shuttles as
an alternative mode of trans-
portation.
Shuttles will be available
from Key West up to Marathon
from 6 p.m. Oct. 27 to 2 a.m.
Oct. 28. Buses will be clearly
marked as "Captain Morgan
Safe Ride." Allow two hours to
get to any destination up the
Keys.
Additional information is
available at www.fantasyfest
.net under the transportation
link; or call 292-8160.

It's nip and tuck,


Key West style


OK, I'll admit the conflict
right off, but I have to
say that if this were hap-
pening at another gallery, I'd be
writing about it. It's just one of
the subjects I can't really set
aside.
My Duval Street gallery in
Key West, 1100 SoDu, is host-
ing Amy Wieck this coming
week, doing chocolate nipple
castings. You can come by and
pick up some party favors, espe-
cially with Fantasy Festhere.
Wieck is an Orlando artist
who specializes in body casting
and props. A diverse freelance
career has her doing everything
from scenic work to makeup for
theme parks, museums, theaters
and retail.
After receiving a bachelor's.
degree in studio art with minors
in theater tech and film studies,
Wieck's career path includes the
Orlando Ripley's Believe It or
Not! and the Triceratops En-
counter at Universal Florida
and the River Ride at Universal
Japan.
Her festival body parts began
at the Orlando Nude Night
Festival.
"The first year I did full life
casting," says Wieck. "It was too
involved so I simplified it. The
next year I did just nipples in
chocolate. We had a line all
through the night'"
The artist uses commercial
white and pink chocolate to form
the intimate delicacies from a
life-cast mold.
"Most people were not shy,"
she says. But she has a "modesty
jacket" for those who are. "Most
people remove just enough
clothing to do the cast."

quirky character at www.prop

La Squishy Femme
I dropped by the Alexander
Guest House, 1118 Fleming St.,
for the "Squishy Femme" show
of paintings by Marky Pierson,
Christa Hunt, Sherry Sweet
Tewell and Jackie Sanchez and
photos by Che Stine.
Pierson and Hunt are the
power engines behind the Key
West Burlesque.
The paintings in the show are
stylized caricatures of the char-
acters that you love in Key West


- women wearing their cats,
buxom cartoon gals packing
weapons, multi-gendered people
making faces.
Some of the paintings that did
not sell at the opening can be
seen at, oh yes, SoDu Gallery.

Interview with the dog


Past champ Brutus
offers advice to
win the Masquerade
By JAMES E. BROOKS
L'Attitudes Contributor

E very dog has his day, and
at Key West's Fantasy Fest
et Masquerade, a few
cats, a rabbit and a ferret have
,been known to have a day them-
selves.
The Fantasy Fest Pet
Masquerade is one of the few G-


rated events in 10 days of
raunchy, bacchic celebrations
where parents can be reasonably
assured children aren't exposed
to an anatomy lesson by
unashamed, overweight people
in leather or feathers.
Dozens of entrants, including
many families, compete in this
highly creative canine-infused
competition. The show doesn't
always go to the dogs but man's
best friend is usually the judges'
top choice.
What's the secret to winning


the Pet Masquerade? Pet owners
are cautious and highly protec-
tive of their costume secrets -
but their pets will do anything
for a bone.
Brutus, a 65-pound brown
and white English bulldog from
Ramrod Key, placed third in the
most exotic division in 2004 and
won top honors in the pet-owner
look-alike category in 2005.
He's not ashamed to explain
success for a leftover egg roll or
potato chip.
"It's all about being creative
and making your own costume,"
Brutus says after swallowing a
piece of a day-old bagel. "You
don't need to go to a pet store-
boutique. You don't need to
spend a lot of money. My owner
has never spent more than $10
on a costume for us."
The best ideas come from

Brutus and his owner, the writer, are all about the Pet
Masquerade. These costumes took top honors in 2005's
competition for best pet-owner look-alike.


pop culture and current events
- no doubt this year's Pet
Masquerade will feature some
sort of Michael Vick-themed
wardrobe. Ideas based on local
issues catch the judges' attention
the most.


"In 2005, right after
Hurricane Wilma, my owner
wrapped me in a brown paper
shopping bag and he wore a
brown paper leaf bag. He printed
up an official-looking label on
the computer using brown paper
that said 'FEMA Temporary
Fantasy Fest Costume' and it
was a hit," Brutus said. "I don't
think it took him more than 20
minutes and a couple of bucks
for leaf bags."
Last year, Brutus failed to
catch the judges' attention.
In the midst of the U.S. Rep.
Mark Foley intern scandal,
Brutus went as a congressional
page and his owner as a bow-
tied representative. His costume
involved copies of the
Congressional Quarterly
newsletter and parts of text mes-
sages sent by Foley.
"I got beat out by some great
Dane dressed like a cow and a
St. Bernard on a stretcher, I
think. I guess the judges don't
follow politics," Brutus said.
"You don't have to be pretty.
Look at me. I'm living proof."
Pets thinking of encouraging
their owners to enter this year's
masquerade should remember of
a couple other important things:

No shortage of costuming


Take your pick
of the events
big and small
ntries in previous years
have included a group of
gigantic dancing Chinese
takeout containers and a sea hag
driving a 10-foot-tall blue and
pink sequined replica steam
engine, and competitors in the
2007 Pretenders in Paradise cos-
tume competition are expected
to dream up equally elaborate
and flamboyant ensembles.
A highlight of Key West's
annual 10-day Fantasy Fest cel-
ebration, Pretenders in Paradise,
is to take place at 8 p.m.
Thursday on an outdoor stage
beside Key West Harbor at the
Pier House Resort, 1 Duval St.
The costume competition is
celebrating its 25th year in 2007
and features a theme of
"Somewhere Under the
Rainbow" to complement the
overall Fantasy Fest theme of
"Gnomes, Toads & White
Rabbit Tea Parties."
Each year, Pretenders draws
over-the-top costume entries


ranging from solo efforts to
multiperson collaborations.
Entrants put on full-scale per-
formances, complete with lights
and music, to entertain standing-
room-only crowds.
As well as being a lavish dis-
play of the costumer art, the
contest can be extremely lucra-
tive for its winners. Judges
award cash prizes totaling
$10,000 in categories for profes-
sional, amateur and group
entries.
Tickets for Pretenders are
$28 per person.
Exotic as it is, Pretenders is
just one of Fantasy Fest's mask-
ing and costuming challenges.
For example, "Mad Hatters" can
strut their stuff at the 25th annu-
al Headdress Ball. Set for 8 p.m.
Tuesday, the Headdress Ball tra-
ditionally draws entrants sport-
ing elaborate masks, cowls, bon-
nets and other headgear all
vying for cash prizes.
Themed "Shrooms, Blooms
& Mad Hatter Plumes," it's to
take place at the Southernmost
Hotel, 1319 Duval St. Between
headdress presentations, atten-


dees can enjoy a nightclub-style
talent revue.
At least 10 other costume -
competitions also are scheduled,
including the annual Red Night
Wednesday at Fogarty's, 227
Duval St.; and the Southernmost
Masked Mania Costume Contest
at 4 p.m. Oct. 26 poolside at the
Southernmost Hotel.
Costumed characters also are
wanted for a homemade bikini
competition, a masquerade con-
test for pets and their people, a
celebrity look-alike showcase, a
pirates' bash and more.

If you've spent part of Fantasy Fest like this and it dragged, so
to speak, late into the night, you'll likely need a hangover cure
the next day.

Bad hangover?
Here are remedies
for cocktail flu
By FRAN MARCHBANK
L'Attitudes Contributor

H ave a headache? A little
nausea? Fatigue? Can't
remember exactly why
you were dancing on the bar at
Sloppy Joe's last night? And it's
Fantasy Fest?
Chances are you didn't con-
tract malaria but are suffering
from a king-size hangover.
Common sense tells you the
best cure for the cocktail flu
would be peace and quiet, a lot
of sleep, many glasses of water...
and time.
But time and patience, you
don't have. Fantasy Fest is in
full swing, and there are too
many parties, too many exciting
events.
So perhaps the best way to go
is try one of the many hangover
remedies available.
Exercise is recommended as
a way to get blood and oxygen
to your oxygen-starved brain,
but this might not be an option if
you can hardly stand up.
Painkillers? Well; they pro-
vide immediate relief, but
aspirin and ibuprofen are hard
on your stomach and acetamino-
phen can cause problems in the
kidneys and liver.
Eat apples, some say. Others
recommend making a banana


milkshake sweetened with honey
to soothe the stomach and rehy-
drate your system.
Chicken soup, the old stand-
by for colds and other assorted
ailments, is reputed to soothe the
hangover-afflicted, as well. Two
teaspoons of fresh lime juice
mixed with a teaspoon of sugar
and 8 ounces of water is said to
stabilize your blood sugar.
Lemon juice in black coffee is
also recommended. Coffee may
give a sensation of instant relief,
but it has diuretic properties.
Since dehydration is a large part
of a hangover, be sure to drink
lots of water, and go easy on the
coffee or avoid it altogether,
Some swear by peppermint
schnapps as the best remedy for
overindulgence, since it can also
be a good cure for seasickness.
Peppermint tea also has a promi-
nent place in the hangover litera-
ture.
Prickly pear cactus extract,
thyme tea and tomato juice have
been highly touted as remedies
for those terrible mornings after.
In Mexico, boiled tripe first
thing in the morning is recom-
mended, and the ancient Romans
are said to have eaten deep-fried
canaries for the cure.
The Greeks found relief by
eating sheep's lungs. Boiled cab-
bage, eel and bitter almonds also
appear as panaceas in Medieval
accounts.

Try these on for size


We asked some Keys bar-
tenders for their best hangover
cures. Here's what they
offered

Bob Panrock, a 17-year
Schooner Wharf veteran, says
his Famous Bloody Mary can
do the trick. It makes 1 gallon
of mix:
+ 10 ounces of
Worcestershire sauce
27 shakes of Tabasco
1 large tablespoon of
horseradish
+ 4 to 5 tablespoons of cel-
ery salt
+ 2 to 2 1/2 tablespoons
ground black pepper
2 large cans of tomato juice
+ Olives, lime slices, and
celery for garnish.


Pour mix over ice and add
1.5 ounces of vodka. Garnish
with an olive, slice of lime and
celery stalk.

Jimmy Magee, bartender at
the Westin in Key West, fills
his requests for a hangover
cure with another tried-and-
true recipe, his Jimmy
Magee's Sure-Fire Hangover
Cure:
2 ounces of club soda
1/2 teaspoon bitters
Juice of 1/2 lime
Mix together with no ice
and drink it down quickly.

Patrick Hayes, bartender at
the Square One, shares his

T IA rARADI C -


Bloody Marys rule


HANGOVER / From 34

In England, salted pickled
herring is recommended, as is
the oil of evening primrose, and
pickle juice is favored in several
countries throughout Europe.
Most popular among all the
remedies out there is the hair of
the dog that bit you, which has
been in vogue since the time of
Shakespeare. The never-let-the-
hangover-catch-up-with-you
solution has an attractive, almost
festive ring to it and sets you up
-for another night of partying.
When you have a hangover,
you are actually in a state of
alcohol withdrawal. The sooth-
ing effect of more booze essen-
tially reverses the withdrawal
process. It is not a cure and
could lead to a serious addiction
problem if abused.
In the United States, the most
popular hangover "cure" is the
bloody Mary, which was invented
in the Roaring Twenties. Its repu-
tation as a healing drink can
probably be attributed to its toma-
to juice, which has been recom-
mended for its restorative powers.
Bob Panrock, bartender at
Key West's Schooner Wharf for
17 years, has seen his share of
hangovers each morning at the
bar's Breakfast Club "a col-
lection of ne'er do wells and
underachievers," he says. He has
two solutions for hangovers:
"Stay drunk or order one of my
famous bloody Marys."


SNo matter your preferred
solution, have fun and party
hearty but know your limit.
And above all, don't drive if you
have been drinking alcohol. Live
to enjoy another Fantasy Fest.

Then you tire,
then you return
for all the fun
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

It's.the question that doesn't
get asked aloud.
You hear all the usual:
What costume will you wear?
How many times have you
been? Where do you plan on
viewing the parade?
But the one that hits home is
seldom asked: What are you
going to do to avoid Fantasy
Fest?
This community relies on the
celebration. Set smack in the
middle of the off season,
Fantasy Fest fills hotel rooms
and provides a vital financial
bridge to keep the tourist indus-
try going until the holidays.
It's just not cool or political-
ly correct to flaunt the fact that
you want nothing to do with the
frivolity.
But most of us get there one
time or another.
Your first year, whether it's


www.keysar ts.com info@keysarts.com 1100 Simonton Street, Key West, FL 33040 305-295-4369


only the somewhat-nudity-
allowed parade or one of the
other dozens of events, is usual-
ly experienced with wide-eyed
wonder. Body paint, exotic
headdresses and risque cos-
tumes dancing in the streets -
how did you live without it?
By your second Fantasy Fest,
you're truly a local. You're into
it completely. Your costume has
taken months to design and
you're pleased with your clever
interpretation of that year's
theme.
After that, things unravel.
Maybe the next year you
paint your face or veer far from
the preconceived theme, follow-
ing some gut instinct of costume
design. Or maybe you just
revert to a T-shirt and jeans and
sit on the sideline to watch the
crazies go by.
By then you're beginning to
notice the traffic jams and tie-
ups that accompany the annual
bacchanal. It used to be cute to
see costumed visitors stop on
the street comers and refer to
their maps. Now it's just irritat-
ing.
That's when you ask the
question.
Of course, the easiest solu-
tion is to just stay home. After
all, the parade is only one
Saturday night out of an entire
year. Stock up with films from


P1


Netflix, call for a pizza, pull the
shades and forget the outside
world.
But Fantasy Fest is more
than just a parade, and truly
avoiding it presents a challenge.
The kickoff coronation of a
king and queen is easy to miss,
but Goombay, which unfolds the
weekend before the infamous
parade, closes off downtown
streets and sends music rever-
berating across the entire island.
It might be easy to overlook
the night of the Dungeons and
Dragons leather fetish party -
or even the party in plaid but
it takes a concerted effort to
ignore the Pet Masquerade,
where people and their pets
dress up together.
In fact, it's events like the
Pet Masquerade that might
leave you wondering why you
want to avoid it all in the first
place.
Where else on the planet can
you find a homemade bikini
contest and a celebrity look-
alike party all in the same day?
When could you enjoy a tattoo
contest coupled with a head-
dress ball in the same evening?
When you get down to it,
you can rent a film any night of
the year.
But only in Key West and
only once a year can you
dress up like a white rabbit and
meet the bunny of your dreams.

Knight wins


district title


for Key West


Others from Keys
also have chance
at making regional
By KEVIN WADLOW
and DICK WAGNER
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Only one Florida Keys swim-
mer nailed down an event cham-
pionship at this week's District
4-A Meet, but Key West High
School freestyler Luke Knight
could yet have a lot of local
company at the regional meet.
Knight won the prestigious
100 freestyle Thursday at the
District 12-A Meet in Miami,
breaking his own school record
with a time of 48.77 seconds. He
beat the runner-up by two-hun-
dredths of a second.
Knight also scored the coun-
ty's only second-place finish at
the meet, swimming the 50
freestyle sprint in 22.31 seconds.


"He really looked good," Key
West coach Lori Bosco said. "In
the 50, he misjudged the wall on
his turn but recovered in time to
pull a second."
Knight, on a recruiting visit
to the University of Las Vegas
this weekend, is trying to earn
his second trip to the state meet.
Other Monroe County swim-
mers were left waiting for times
to be posted from the other three
districts that are qualifying
swimmers for the Region 4A
Meet, in Boca Raton on
Thursday. Top times from
throughout the region fill out the
meet spots.-
"We might have the fastest
district in the region," Coral
Shores coach Mark Hill said.
"We'll have to see who makes
it."

The Marathon High School
golf team fell just six strokes
short of advancing past its dis-
trict tournament Tuesday, finish-
ing fourth out of seven teams
with a combined 18-hole score
of 352.
However, senior Jay Hegland
did qualify on an individual
basis. The top three scorers from
teams not advancing qualified to
compete in Monday's regional
tournament at Riviera Country
Club in Coral Gables.
Hegland shot a 79 on what


Marathon coach Dean Carrigan
said was a very difficult
International Links Miami-
Melreese Golf Course.
"I don't think the course was
set up fairly for these kids; the
pins were set up really tough.
They were tucked into some
weird spots," Carrigan said. "As
a team, to shoot what we did,
was very good. That was our
lowest 18-hole score by far" this
season.
Gulliver Prep won the tourna-
Tment with a score of 301, fol-
lowed by Belen with 325 and
Ransom Everglades, 346.
As has often been the case
this year for Hegland, his round
had a shaky beginning. He was

Coral Shores
comes back
in big way
By KEVIN WADLOW

kwadlow@keynoter.com


In the- fourth volleyball
game against Coral Shores,
Marathon's Lady Dolphins
seemed to have victory in hand.
The Dolphins had a 2-1 lead
in the best-of-five-games
match Tuesday in Tavernier,
then scored the first nine points
to start the fourth game.
But Coral Shores senior
Casey Bishop then served two
aces in a six-point string, and
suddenly a Marathon victory
did not seem so inevitable.
The Dolphins kept the lead,
and with two quick kill shots


by Alexis Culver, moved with-
in one point of the win at 24-
20.
Coral Shores was not yet
done. Lauren Sanches served a
string of six points with key
blocks from Hannah Padgett
and Chelsea Moeller to grab
the game, 26-24.
That forced a tiebreaker,
won by the host Hurricanes,
15-12.
The Dolphins scored the
first five points behind serving
from Ashley Hooper. Coral
Shores rallied to tie the game at
9-9, then kept rallies alive to
pull ahead.
"Marathon's not in our dis-
trict but they're always going
to be our biggest rivalry game,"

together as a team. We wanted to
win."
Marathon coach Kevin
Freeman has seen his share of
disappointment in a 2-13 cam-
paign, so this was just the latest
chapter.
"It was a great game. We
played as well as we have in a
long time," Freeman said. "You
hate to lose that kind of game.
We had it, but managed to
snatch defeat from the jaws of
victory."
Marathon won the first two
games, 25-23, 25-14. Coral
Shores took the next two, 25-19,
26-24.
"Coral Shores never stopped
playing," Freeman said. "We
missed a couple of hits that
could have turned it around, then
seemed to lose focus."
Jessica Brier and Culver
combined for 23 kills in the five-
game match.

Thiery said. "That's for the time
this season that we've been

aged to come back. To get that
kind of confidence going into
the district tournament is huge."
The win capped the Coral

Trice is bonefish champ


Veteran angler
releases four
for the title
Jim Trice of Islamorada won
the grand-champion title and
the general division at the 41st
annual Bonefishing World
Championship Islamorada All-
Tackle Bonefish Tournament
that ended Oct. 12.
Trice, a board member of
the Don Hawley Foundation
that supports fishing captains
in need, scored four releases -
three on bait and one on spin
tackle and five weight fish
for a total of 4,250 points.
Trice fished with Capt. Tad
Burke of Islamorada.
"We were very lucky and
had great chemistry," Trice
said. "Every time we caught a
bonefish, we thanked God."


Winning the championship
means Trice and Burke's
names will be inscribed on the
tournament's perpetual trophy.
"Our names are listed forev-
er with some of the greatest
legends in fishing," said Burke,
who characterized the angling
challenge as "the hardest tour-
nament to win." -
Frank Delucas of Plantation
was runner-up grand champion
with 3,800 points. He fished
with Capt. Mark Krowka of
Davie, scoring 28 releases and
three weight fish. Delucas also
won the award for most release
points.
Author and columnist Carl
Hiaasen of Vero Beach was the
tournament's fly division
champion. He scored two
weight fish on fly and nine
releases on fly while fishing


with Capt. Tim Klein of
Islamorada.
The largest fish award went
to Tom Siska of Saddlebrook,
N.J., for a bonefish weighing
11 pounds, 4 ounces. Siska,
who was also named high point
out-of-state angler, fished with
Capt. Duane Baker of
Islamorada.
The tournament's award for
the largest permit went to Jeff
Bloodworth of Grayson, Ga.,
with a 34.5-inch fish. He fished
with Capt. George Wood.
High-point first-time angler
was Thane Morgan of
Amarillo, Texas. High-point
first-time guide was Capt.
Chuck Schafstall of
Islamorada.
Eighty-one bonefish were
scored as releases (under 7
pounds). Twenty-three bones
were entered as weight fish of
more than 7 pounds.


Conchs' hopes

sink, putts don't


Team dispatched
in the district,
season's over
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

An afternoon of missed
putts translated into last place
for the Key West High School
golf team at the District 24-1A
meet Tuesday at the
International Links Miami-
Melreese Golf Course.
But with a bright 2008 sea-
son likely, the Conchs did not
dwell on the disappointment.
Key West shot 359, behind
Gulliver Prep (301), Belen,
Jesuit (325), Ransom
Everglades (346) and Marathon
(352).
The Conchs needed to finish
in the top three they just
missed doing that last season
- to advance to the regional
meet.
"I was expecting to go fur-
ther in the districts," second-
year coach Nora Laubenstein
said. "Earlier in the season we
proved we could beat Ransom
Everglades and Marathon.
However, the last two weeks
without competition may have
hurt our motivation a little bit.
But I'm very proud of our play-
ers."
Junior Blake Oropeza and
freshman Jack Lockwood each
shot 88 to lead the Conchs.


Junior Daniel Margil shot 90
and junior Casey Dion 93.
"Our team is definitely
capable of going to the region-
als, but sometimes the golf
gods aren't on our side,"
Laubenstein said. "We had a
rough day. The putts weren't
sinking, and we also have to
remember we have a very
young team with two players
having never played a tourna-
ment of this importance."
Laubenstein expects
Oropeza, Margil and Casey to
all shoot in the high 30s next
season. "I definitely see a
bright year ahead," she said.
"We have some great talent,
and more players are coming
up from the eighth grade."
The Conchs will be expected
to hit the Key West Golf Club
course at least twice a week
during the off-season. "The
more the better," Laubenstein
said. "And putt, putt, putt."

Stop the presses: Daylight broadbills


Fishery now
is exploding
up, down Keys
By ANDY NEWMAN
Keynoter Contributor

"C'mon you Jimmy Durante-
looking, long-nosed son of a
gun."
It wasn't the first time that
Richard Stanczyk pleaded those
words and it would not be the
last.
The venerable owner of Bud
N' Mary's Fishing Marina in
Islamorada was endeavoring to
prove for the 49th consecutive
time since Sept. 4, 2006, it was
possible to catch a swordfish, or
broadbill, in broad daylight off
the Florida Keys.
But the fish, aptly named for
a sword-like bill proportionately
longer than that of a sailfish or
marlin, were not cooperating
and I knew why. In angling, usu-
ally it's the kiss of death to have
a journalist on a boat, especially
when a fish must be caught for a
news story.
There were three writers on


Stanczyk's Catch-22.
For years, anglers have
caught highly prized swordfish
off the Keys and other parts of
the east coast at night, but in
2002 Stanczyk's longtime fish-
ing friend Vic Gaspeny read an
account of daytime swordfish-
ing off Venezuela. He figured if
it could be done there, success
could be achieved off the Keys.
In January 2003, Stanczyk;
his brother Scott, the boat's cap-
tain, and Gaspeny went out dur-
ing the day about 35 miles off
the Keys. It took 20 minutes to
drop a bait 1,800 feet down.
Within an hour they boated their
first daytime swordfish.
Even after that initial suc-
cess, they kept fishing at night.
Occasionally they'd go out early
and fish before dark. In the
spring of 2006, they decided to
make daytime swordfishing a
full-time obsession.
The entourage has used baits
ranging from squid to pelagic
fish belly strips; has pioneered
break-away sinker apparatus to
get baits to the bottom -of the
ocean in depths up to 2,000 feet


and has literally become experts
at the game.
They tried to keep their dis-
covery under wraps, but that
proved difficult when returning
to the dock with catches at about
the same evening hour they
should have started fishing.
Word started getting out on
the coconut telegraph," the
name affectionately ascribed to
the Keys rumor mill. Small off-
shore fishing boats followed
them on their outings.
Journalists begged for the story,
but Stanzcyk would only take
writers that were close friends
and swore not to do a story.
With each successful trip,
guarding the secret became
more challenging. Especially
after Feb. 21, 2007, when
Stanczyk 's older son, Ricky,
caught seven swordfish in one
day. And six days later,
Stanczyk led an angler to a 448-
pounder.
Eventually, other charter cap-
tains saw and heard enough to
convince them that the daytime
swordfishery was real.
Recently, Stanczyk decided it
was time to preserve his team's
rightful place in Keys angling


history and went public with the
accomplishment.
Thus was the motivation for'
the 49th daylight swordfishing
trip. The first drop, that day in
early September, came at 10:30
a.m. Gaspeny got a bite at 11:15
a.m. from what he determined
was a big fish because it pulled
much line off the reel before
spitting the bait. Four more
drop also produced bites, but
no swordfish.
An hour of daylight remained
and it appeared the streak would
be broken. Frustration began to
set in and .discussion turned to
what was to blame.
"C'mon you Jimmy Durante-
looking, long-nosed son of a
gun," Stanzcyk implored again.
With the sun getting low on
the horizon, the crew of Jimmy
Coughlin, K.J. Zeher and Nick
Stanczyk, Stanczyk 's youngest
son, began retrieving the sixth
drop, when line started pulling
off the 80-pound-test Shimano
reel. Gaspeny got into the fight-
ing chair and less than a half-
hour before sunset reeled in a
75-pound swordfish.
It wasn't a massive fish, but
the streak was preserved.

ICS squads


head to playoffs


Soccer, v'ball
teams sluggish
entering district
After struggling in their reg-
ular-season finales, both the
Island Christian School boys'
soccer and girls' volleyball
teams head to district competi-
tion this week.
The boys play St. Brendan
- a team the Eagles tied, 3-3,
last week in a District 8
game Tuesday at Princeton
Christian in south Miami-Dade.
The Lady Eagles advance to
the District 16-A volleyball
tournament, opening Monday
against rival Princeton


Christian at MacArthur South.
Coach Robert Lucas' boys'
soccer squad outscored Greater
Miami Academy in the second
half of the final regular-season
game Oct. 15, but it was not
enough to overcome a poor start
and a 2-0 Miami halftime lead.
Miami took the game, 3-2,
giving ICS a record of 8-4-1
heading into the state district. It
was the Eagles' first loss to a
team not named Princeton
Christian this fall.
"I am pleased that the guys
realized what they were not
doing correctly in the first half
and fixed it in the second half,"
Lucas said. "We dominated


play in the second half. We
learned: you have to play two
halves."
Fifteen minutes into the sec-
ond half, Charlie Marmitt broke
the shutout with a score off a
chip pass from Nathan
Overfield.
An ICS defensive error then
let Miami go back up by two
goals.
Island Christian drew within
one late in the game, when
Marmitt was taken down in the
box and drew a penalty shot.
Freshman forward Jon Cruciger
converted the kick.
"We had numerous scoring
opportunities in the final 15
minutes but could not score the
equalizer," Lucas said.

The Lady Eagles dropped
both ends of an Oct. 15 double-
header at Westwood Christian.

This tournament's

all about the kids


Junior Derby
returning to
Islamorada
Most tournaments target one
or two species of fish. But the
Islamorada Fishing Club's
Junior Derby encourages kids to
get out and fish for just about
anything that swims (tropicals
excluded).
The 2007 IFC Junior Derby is
set for Nov. 24 at the Islamorada
Fishing Club, mile marker 82
bayside.
The all-release tournament
focuses on fun and sportsman-
ship. The IFC hopes to teach the
importance of fish conservation
through catch-and-release, while
imparting a sportsmanship ethic
to the young anglers. All scoring
is based on the honor system.
Kids can fish to win one of 28
prizes, with grand champions to
be named in three age divisions
- super small fry (up to-age 6),
small fry (ages 7-10) and junior
(ages 11-16). Separate grand
champions are to be named in
guided and unguided divisions
within each age group.
