Somnbrero Ca\ Club in Marathon,


as well as the Orlando Cay Club
and Sarasota Cay Club, to
Sunvest Communities.
Sunvest and Cay Clubs have
long been partners in developing
properties in Florida, and Sunvest
is an investor in the business, Cay
Clubs spokesman Chris Brown
said.
Subsidiaries of Sunvest
already owned the Sombrero
Marina and land around it. Those


and other subsidiaries own much
of the property that Cay Clubs
represents' in Marathon,
Plantation Key and Key Largo.
Cay Clubs was charged by
Sunvest with meeting certain
financial benchmarks to retain
and eventually purchase the prop-
erties. The relinquishing of
Sombrero and the other proper-
ties will help Cay Clubs manage
its other assets, Brown said.

Fire wrecks Key West house -s briefs


It apparently
started from
lighted cigarette


A fire out at 730 United-St. in
Key West Tuesday morning
caused more than $200,000 in
damage, according to city fire
officials.
The 5:40 a.m. blaze caused
extensive damage to the Conch
house, but only minor injuries to
one occupant; there were five
people in the house when the fire
started in one of the bedrooms.
Police spokeswoman Christie
Phillips said a woman said she
was smoking in bec when she
noticed the mattress caught fire.
She yelled for the other residents
to help her, at which time one of
them.grabbed a small fire extin-
guisher and tried to put out the
flames.
But it proved inadequate
because the flames were by then
engulfing about half of mattress.
One resident then tried to pull
the mattress out of the house but
it got stuck in a doorway and
quickly engulfed the back porch
and living area, and then the-
upstairs, causing severe structur-
al damage.
The Key West Fire
Department was called to the


I~.-- - ---..

This is the back porch where the mattress was wedged in the


scene at 5:50 a.m. and had the
fire out less than two minutes
after firefighters' arrival.
Fire Marshal Pat Pelletier
said "this house had no smoke


detectors and insufficient fire
extinguishers, and some of the
windows were boarded up for
hurricanes. We're lucky no one
was severely hurt."


2008 races are already on


ELECTION / From 1

course, we will always try to beat
our opponent, but we do it in a
nice way."
Both Spehar and Murphy have.
acknowledged they intend to run.
However, McCoy is being coy.
"It's premature to consider,"
he said. "There are several people
asking me, but there are things I
have to consider. I have a project,
in Costa Rica that I'm excited
about and I keep postponing it."
Spehar said last week she
would not accept the mayorship
of the county if she is nominated
at the commission's November
organizational meeting because
she will be busy running her cam-
paign for reelection.
As in all politics, the rumor
mill is hard at work. One has for-
mer County Commissioner
David Rice challenging either
McCoy or Spehar.


Rice stepped down early from
his single term in the Marathon
district to run last year for the
state House on the GOP ticket.
County Mayor Mario Di Gennaro
now serves in that seat, but the
coconut telegraph says Rice, who-
owns a house in Key West and a
liveaboard slip on Stock Island,
might consider moving to run in
the Lower Keys.
"Of course I'm interested in
it," Rice said. "At the moment I
certainly don't have any intention
one way or the other. But all I'd
have to do is put my boat in the
slip at [the] Oceanside [Marina.]"
There's also speculation that
Democrat Heather Carruthers is
eyeing McCoy's seat and that for-
mer candidate and Stock Island
resident Kim Wigington might
consider challenging Spehar once
again.
Sawyer intends to run for
reelection but said the Key West
runoff election has kept him busy


and he hasn't really thought
much about his own race next
year. Key West political consult-
ant Henry Woods has announced
he's running against Sawyer.
Higgs also has an early chal-
lenger in Islamorada Councilman
Chris Sante.
Kolhage has no challengers as
yet, but confirmed Tuesday he
intends to run for reelection.
In addition to the County
Commission and constitutional
officers, the terms of State
Attorney Mark Kohl, Public
Defender Rosemary Enright,
School Board members Andy
Griffiths and Duncan Mathewson
and schools Superintendent
Randy Acevedo expire in 2008.
Also up are Key Largo
Wastewater Treatment District
board member Claude Bullock
and Key Largo Fire Rescue and
Emergency Medical Services
District William Anderson, Mark
Wheaton and Marilyn Beyer.


Lobster, stone crab
stolen; value's $20K

The manager of the retail
portion of the Islamorada Fish
Co. reported Saturday nmon-
ing that a serious amount of
seafood was stolen.
Between Friday and
Saturday someone broke a
window, entered the business
and stole 900 pounds of
whole lobster and 77 pounds
of stone crab; the seafood
was valued at almost
$20,000, according to the
Sheriffs Office.

Blaze could have been worse


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


A blaze that destroyed a 43-
foot charter boat in Islamorada
Monday could have been much
worse.
"That dock usually is full of
boats," Islamorada Fire Chief
William Wagner.
"But on Monday, it was
empty," Wagner said. "The way
that fire was burning, we would
have lost a couple more boats."
The Man 0 Man, a Torres-
built charterboat skippered by
Capt. Michael Hancock, was
unoccupied in its berth at
Holiday Isle Resort and Marina
when the fire broke out shortly
after 10 a.m. Monday.
The slip next to the Man 0
Man usually is occupied by the
Yabba Dabba Do, a 43-footer
captained by Steve Leopold.
"My boat was out of the
water so it could be repowered
during the slow season,"
Leopold said.
"I've never been so happy to
have a boat out of the water,"
Leopold said. "If it had been in
the slip, it definitely would have
burned. I was lucky."
A witness told authorities he
saw smoke coming out of the
Man 0 Man's salon area. He
called 911 and tried to use an
extinguisher to put the fire out.

Fire engulfs the 'Man 0 Man' in Islamorada Monday. Officials
believe an electrical problem started it.


But the flames spread too
quickly.
"When our units got there, it
was already fully involved,"
Wagner said.
Traffic on U.S. 1'was halted
for approximately half an hour,
in case of explosion.
Islamorada firefighters, with
an assist from a boat from the
Islamorada Coast Guard Station,
put the flames out in about 20
minutes, the chief said.
During resort renovations
about two years ago, the fire
department required Holiday
Isle to install two new hydrants


on the property. "They came in
very handy on Monday," Wagner
said.
Firefighters were at the dock
for about three hours. "We
couldn't put anybody on board
right away because it was too
dangerous," Wagner said. "They
we had to make sure nothing
was burning. That was pretty
tedious but it had to be done."
Initial investigation by
Islamorada officers and the state
Fire Marshal's Office said cause
of the Man 0 Man blaze appears
to be a short-circuit in the elec-
trical system.


Cay Clubs gives up Sombrero


CAY CLUBS / From 1

"Our inability to provide the
capital necessary to fund negative
cash flows at our resort properties
has effects on the visitor experi-
ence, recurring tourism and long-
term viability of the property's
brand," Cay Clubs Chief
Executive Officer Dave Clark
said in a prepared statement. "As
we continue to fight numerous
challenges, we are implementing
qualified solutions for our prop-
erty owners, while addressing the
ongoing sustainability of our
business."
Sunvest, based out of
Hallandale, a Broward County
city south of Hollywood, report-
ed sales of $1 billion in 2006 and
$3 billion in assets.
Clark-also said Gary Schwarz,
Cay Clubs vice president of oper-


nations, will resign. Schwarz was
offered an opportunity to manage
the taken-over properties for
Sunvest but declined for personal
reasons, Brown said.
Schwarz is the brother of
*David W. Schwarz, owner of the
Cay Clubs brand along with Clark.
The outside takeover of Cay
Clubs-managed properties has
become a theme this fall. In
September, the Singh Co. took
back management control of three
Marathon resorts from Cay Clubs.
Cay Clubs'profile in the Keys
is significantly smaller than pre-
viously reported.
Cay Clubs owns Bayside, a
hotel in Key Largo, as well as a
smattering of condos and other
small properties.
Cay Clubs also claims to own
more boat slips than any other
company in the Florida Keys. But
that claim came under fire in a


lawsuit against Cay Clubs filed by
Sombrero Cay Club condo buy-
ers. Sunvest owns many of the
slips Cay Clubs has represented.
The company principals also
own a series of other companies,
many under the name Cristal
Clear. This brand includes an avi-
ation service company at the
Marathon airport and once
included a small fleet of jets that
some Cay Clubs investors were
promised access to. They also
own a boat rental business and a
rum and vodka venture.
The company's rapid expan-
sion has left it cash-poor and
struggling to make leaseback and
loan payments, according to
Securities and Exchange
Commission documents filed in
the summer.
Cay Clubs has until the end of
the year to pay $74 million in
loans, according to SEC filings.

Initial punishment stands


SPOTO / From 1

made a motion to direct Fussell to
fire Spoto subject to legal review.
It was voted down 4-1.
Rudell said he felt Spoto vio-
lated the public's trust by misus-
ing taxpayer dollars.
Fussell stood by his decision
not to fire Spoto and said the pub-
lic was "ill-informed" if it was
not satisfied with his punishment.
He also said the incident has cre-
ated an atmosphere of low
morale within the district.
"I-haven't lost confidence in
Mike. If he screws up in any way,
there isn't any question he'll have
to be terminated. He's been one
of the most valuable employees
I've ever had the pleasure of
supervising," said Fussell, who
attended the meeting by phone.
The only further action the
board took was to unanimously
accept an offer by Spoto to pay
the full amount of restitution to


the district as determined by
Southcott.
Fussell had previously ruled
Spoto to be responsible for only
$1,658.51 of the $5,253.24.
"I talked to Mike and he says
he's willing to pay the full
amount. He is more than willing
to get the thing settled and not put
the board through any unneces-
sary discomfort," Fussell said.
Board Chairwoman Joan
Lord-Papy said other problems
with employees in the past had.
been "brushed aside" and that
Spoto has been an otherwise
exemplary employee.
"I'm not forgetting all the
good things Mike has done... I
guess I'm more forgiving and tol-
erant," Lord-Papy said.
Commissioners Steve Smith
and Charles Langstaff said they
feel personnel issues are outside
the board's realm of responsibili-
ties.
"We're not involved in per-
sonnel, we're involved in public


money issues. Mike Spoto made
a misuse of district funds and I
want to make sure they get paid
back," Commissioner Bill Shaw
said in response.
Labor and employment attor-
ney York Flik explained. to the
board how Spoto's punishment
was determined. He said he
"basically interrogated" Spoto
over his mishandling of the dis-
trict's Nextel phone program.
"Mike denied giving-the
phones to his family. He conced-
ed his daughter was likely using
the phones and apologized. There
was clear evidence, but the issue
is one of proof," Flik said.
In light of Spoto's good record
and "profuse apology," Flik said
it was recommended he receive
the most severe punishment
allowed outside of termination.
Southcott said he would work
on a plan to revise .the district's
purchasing and requisitioning
procedures as a result of the
phone issues.

Courthouse

contractor sues


It alleges
county causes
Freeman delays
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The contractor for the long-
awaited new courthouse in Key
West has filed a complaint
against the Monroe County
Commission charging it with
breach of contract and
demanding a jury trial to
reclaim what it calls damages
of more than $2 million. .
Attorneys for the Davie-
based Tower Group Inc. filed
the complaint Oct. 10, claim-
ing "the actions of the county
and its representatives tran-
scend mere bureaucratic lethar-
gy and bungling" and accusing
the county of delaying the
project.
"It's come to this point
because we refused to write
blank -checks to the Tower
Group," said County Engineer
David Koppel, who oversees
the county's capital' projects.
"We've continued to deny their
change-order requests. We've
attempted to settle matters, but
they continue to come back
with outrageous requests."
The Freeman Justice Center
has been under construction for
nearly a decade and the project
is rife with problems.
It's gone from an estimated
$4 million when it was first
conceived in the early 1990s to
a cost so far of $14 million.
Architect Jose Gonzales was
'fired in 2005 when the plans
didn't match reality, and a con-
tract for putting a facade on the
building has bounced among
different contractors.
In the meantime, members
of the judiciary make a month-
ly pilgrimage to County
Commission meetings begging
for completion of the court-
house. They say the existing
building leaks sewage and
stormwater on potential jurors.
The Tower Group claims the
county has, from the beginning
of the 2004 contract, "inter-
fered with Tower's right to
proceed with the work in a
timely fashion."
The suit, filed by law firm


Elder and Lewis of Coconut
Grove, says the county provid-
ed ambiguous plans, failed to
attend project meetings and
"permitted months to lapse"
before providing necessary
electrical plans.
Koppel said the company
has submitted requests for
about $2.5 million in addition-
al charges.
"We expected this action,
which is why we have already
hired outside consultation well
in advance," Koppel said.
Despite the delays, Tower
estimates the project will be
complete by the end of the
year.
"We see very little work
being done on the site,"
Koppel said, "as if they've
abandoned the job."
He said there were reports
of no workers Monday and just
one on Tuesday.
"There's just too much
remaining to be done for it to
be staffed like that," he said.
The case has been assigned
to Monroe County Circuit
Court Judge David Audlin, but
not yet scheduled to be heard.
According to County
Attorney Suzanne Hutton, the
complaint has not yet been
served to county Mayor Mario
Di Gennaro. Until then, she
said, the county cannot issue a
response.

Islamorada Village Council at its
5:30 p.m. Thursday regular
meeting to suggest.new limits on
nearshore lobster harvests.
In 2002, Islamorada adopted
the first 300-foot nearshore ban
on diving during the July two-
day mini-season, a measure
intended to prevent divers from
encroaching or trespassing on
privately owned waterfront.
Similar laws now,have been
adopted throughout much of
Monroe County, a measure cited
as significantly reducing resi-
'dents' complaints about the sport
season.
In a letter to the council,
Bellizzi said the diving rules do
not stop bullynetters from using
boats to seek nearshore lobster in
mini-season.
Bellizzi cited "nuisance
issues" including loud boat

r" L


es could tighten


engines through the night and
high-powered search lights.
Bellizzi also said that
nearshore diving has become a
problem when the regular season
opens Aug. 6 because "the dive
restriction basically created a
harvest-free area during the
mini-season which is now
exploited during the regular sea-
son."
In a workshop on state lobster
laws earlier this month, Bellizzi
urged fishery managers to make
the nearshore diving ban a
nearshore harvest ban in place
throughout the lobster season.
Also Thursday, Islamorada
Village Council members will
consider granting a liquor
license to Two Martinis, a liquor
store proposed for a vacant
building next door to the
Islamorada library. The building
formerly housed the Islamorada
Tackle shop.
After strong public protests,
council members previously
rejected the application, citing
the liquor store's proximity to
the library, a small county park
and a 12-step program's meeting


room.
Property owners appealed in
court and won a ruling from
Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia.
The ruling said the council's
decision was based on arbitrary
factors not outlined in village
code.
Planning Director Ed
Koconis recommended approval
of the application.
SAnd Village Manager Gary
Word will recommend keeping a
contract with U.S. Water to oper-
ate Islamorada's sewage treat-
ment plan Mayor Dave Boemer
has suggested terminating the
contract.

Keys Opinion


Even in fractious Keys,

boards can work together

Every so often, we see glimmers of common sense appear in
actions taken by local government.
One such glimmer happened last week when the Monroe
County Commission agreed to help foot the bill for lights at the
Sugarloaf School ball fields.
Because these fields are on School District property bit serve
a larger public good, they fall into an arena often shaped by
interlocal agreement.
In the case of Sugarloaf School, the county ponied up nearly
$60,000 to help build the ball fields, recognizing they serve on
evenings and weekends as a community park and play area.
In a 2001 agreement between the county and the School
Board, the county also agreed to help maintain the facility -
again, demonstrating good stewardship.
Last week, it completed the circle by approving $5,000 to help
turn on the lights there until 9 p.m. six nights a week. Cutbacks
in School District spending had reduced the frequency and dura-
tion of the night lights for after-hours play.
There are similar interlocal agreements at work in Marathon,
where the city has stepped up to help landscape the courtyard
space at the new Marathon High School.
On a far larger scale, the village of Islamorada is exploring
with the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District board a pos-
sible interlocal agreement that would wind up treating some por-
tion of village sewage at the North Key Largo plant.
Lots of opinion-makers have weighed in on the topic, but few
can evade the common-sense test that asks: Does it make eco-
nomic sense to build two sewer plants when one larger plant
could do the job and do it more cost effectively?
How local taxing bodies answer these and similar questions
will become increasingly critical as the public purse shrinks
alongside diminished tax rolls and goaded by state legislative
mandates to reduce taxes.
Soon, the School Board, city of Marathon and others will be
looking at how best to collaborate on the now-defunct Marathon
Manor property, which the School Board spent $7.4 million to
acquire in 2005. The former nursing home now lies dormant.
It makes little economic sense for the School District by itself,
or for the city of Marathon separately to try to convert this eye-
sore into an attractive, affordable housing opportunity.
But those with experience in public-sector housing, in collab-
oration with the School District and the city, could turn this
lemon into lemonade.
But that's only if the spirit of interlocal cooperation can find
enough support among the stakeholders.

Equal access isn't a favor,
EDITOR:
The people that complain about how busi-
nesses are being persecuted over non-compli-
ance.of federal disability laws most likely aren't
the same ones that are stuck on the curb in a
wheelchair or have a loved one that can't join
them in a restaurant.
I taught and trained students with disabilities
in Key West and we did much of our training in
the community. Until you sit in a wheelchair
trying to dodge and weave the many obstruc-
tions put in the way, you have no concept of
how poorly many stores (and government struc-
tures, parking lots, parks and even schools) in
Key West do when it comes to equal access.
It wasn't uncommon to find even in stores
that had wide aisles and doorways the path
obstructed with displays or, in the case of one
grocery store, the aisle being used for storage of
pallets of merchandise not yet put on the
shelves. This roadblock gave very limited space
for a wheelchair and no space to turn to be able
to access items without help.
If someone was caught with a suitcase filled
with cocaine by the police or pulled over after a


it's the law
high-speed chase down U.S.I, most would think
the argument "I was not given a warning first"
a bit ludicrous. What is it about equal access
regarding disabilities that some can't under-
stand? You must wonder if the same establish-
ments also cut the comers when it comes to fire
safety, food handling or other federal laws that
will cost them money meet the minimum stan-
dards.
Key West displays with pride the One
Human Family banner. Maybe it's time for the
community to demand that all people be includ-
ed under that banner and support the action of
those that are demanding obstacles be removed
that keep a segment of the community locked
out.
Far more places block access than those that
have gone to court so far, however, there can be
no lawsuits if the obstacles are gone and fair
access provided.

Another resident is priced out, moving out


EDITOR:
I have been living in Marathon for 10 years.
I met my wife at the Dockside Lounge and we
thought we had found our home for life.
Marathon was the perfect cruisers' stopping
port in the Keys and a wonderful fishing and
diving village. The town fathers decided they
wanted Marathon to be more so they incorpo-
rated and proceeded to try to turn this fishing
diving and cruisers' sanctuary into a gated
resort, a big-dollar community without the
gates.
Well, they can't give away the big money
condos, half the workforce has moved, every
strip mall has empty stores, etc. It wouldn't
take a rocket scientist to have seen that people
who can afford million-dollar-plus condos don't
want to hear "if Kmart doesn't have it, you

Fees are taxes in disguise
EDITOR:
The current tax-reduction debate now
going on in the state Capitol is a farce and a
shell game.
No cap on taxes will be effective unless
counties and cities are prohibited from
replacing taxes with user fees. The Monroe
County Commission has already.moved in
that direction. Will we see a user fee if we
make a call to law enforcement, or should
we as citizens hire a private protection
agency? Will a call to the fire department
result in a fee?
Enforcement and collection of fees will
require additional people at additional cost.
It is time to restore sanity and honesty to
local government.

"Honey, we are going out for dinner but don't

It deeply saddens Brenda and myself to have
to leave but we have been given no choice. It is
not possible to live here anymore at $10 an

Unfortunately, I am afraid it is going to get a
lot worse before it goes back to the way it was.
This reminds me of the saying that if it isn't
broken, don't fix it.
Well the town fathers made this bed; now
they are going to have to sleep in it.

Let casinos operate in Keys


EDITOR:
The residents of Monroe County'
are being asked [to finance more
than $500 million] in sewer costs.
They are also being denied services
because of a shortfall of income by
the commission. It is time to find
replacement sources of income.
Miami-Dade and Broward coun-
ties have approved casinos as alter-
nate sources of income. Why not
Monroe County? Only because a
small vocal minority affectionately
known as tree huggers oppose it like
everything else. Their argument is
we will go to hell in a hand basket
with rampant crime. Unfortunately,
that is unsubstantiated opinion with-
out factual backup.
Communities with casinos are just
as safe'as communities without casi-
nos: While anecdotal evidence and
popular myth have perpetuated
claims by gambling opponents that
the introduction of casinos causes a
rise in street crime, recent studies as
well as testimony from law enforce-
ment w.drking in casino jurisdictions
refute this claim.
In their reports to the National
Gambling Impact Study
Commission, neither the National
Research Council of the National
Academy of Sciences nor the
University of Chicago's National
Opinion Research Center were able
to confirm a relationship between
crime and legalized gaming. The
casino effect was noL.statistically sig-
nificant for any of the crime outcome


measures, according to the NORC
report.
In 2000, the Public Sector
Gaming Study Commission,reached
similar conclusions, finding "no link
between gambling, particularly casi-
no-style gambling, and crime." In
fact, the 2000 report recognized that
casinos are more of a crime deterrent
than an instigator.
According to the report, the
"security on the premises of gam-
bling facilities, the multiple layers of
regulatory control, and the economic
and social benefits that gambling
seems to offer to communities are
effective deterrents to criminal activ-
ity."
When calculating crime rates, it's
critical to account for the overall
population at risk, both residents and
visitors, particularly in tourist desti-
nations. Any community with more
visitors, hotels or other commercial
activity is likely to experience an
increase in reported levels of crime
due to an influx of people and activi-
ty. The actual crime rate (the number
of crimes based on the population at
risk), however, may actually have
decreased.
Other factors that need to be taken
into account are increases in the law
enforcement presence often made
possible through casino-tax revenue,
which can improve the effectiveness
of crime detection efforts.

Silence isn't golden when


a community's affected


In "Glengarry Glen Ross," the superb
1992 film about ruthless real-estate
agents, the most ruthless of them all,
Blake (Alec Baldwin), lives by the
mantra "ABC always be closing!
Always be closing!"
I would suggest to the executives at
Cay Clubs Resorts and Marinas that's
not a good mantra to live by when it
comes to public relations, as in always
be closing your mouths. Because all it
does in a community in which you've
tried to make a mark but apparently fall-
en quite short is create even more suspi-
cion and hostility than existed before -


and a lot has existed since
Cay Clubs burst on the Keys
scene three years ago.
In today's Keynoter, Keys
Sunday reporter Sam Nissen
has yet another story about
Cay Clubs' financial difficul-
ties. The latest is that the
Clearwater-based firm is
turning over management of
the Sombrero Cay Club in
Marathon, formerly
Sombrero Resort, to the
Hallandale-based Sunvest,
one of its partners.
Apparently there's some
movement on the Marathon
Boat Yard and Marina and its

Keynote


associated docks, as well, but few details
are forthcoming.
We got an inkling something was up
on Friday, and Sam started making
phone calls.
Cay Clubs, as usual, was less than
forthright at first. The singular public
relations officer working for Cay Clubs
seems largely kept out of the company
loop and has to spend time prying infor-
mation from his bosses. Other employees
are strictly told not to speak to the .
media. This sort of information bottle-
neck ensures that Cay Clubs rumors per-
sist and grow.
However, we knew something wvas up
because employees were telling us there
were problems with their paychecks, that
they might not be getting paid Friday.
We couldn't find out because Cay Clubs.
executives, namely Chief Executive
Officer Dave Clark and chief investor
Dave Schwartz, don't respond to the
press.
The press has no more right than oth-
ers to expect phone calls returned. But
Cay Clubs, private company or not, does
have a responsibility to keep the commu-


nity informed when its actions have so
much impact on so many employees.
The pattern of secrecy is not new.
In May, we found out Cay Clubs
slashed dozens of jobs in the Middle and
Upper Keys, jobs held by those who
could least afford to lose them. It took
serious persistence on the Keynoter's
part but we were finally able to nail it
down well, at least nail down that
jobs were lost. How many, no one would
say.
-Frank Rego, one of Cay Clubs' top
executives in the Keys, said it was a
mere byproduct of the market downturn.
That may have been so, but
whether you agree or not, a
company has a responsibility
to inform its staff of possible
serious downsizing when it
knows it's coming.
That didn't happen. As one
J. ^ Cay Clubs worker now ex-
worker told us back then,
S "They didn't let any of us
know it was coming."
Apparently a second wave of
layoffs happened in
September. That, too, was
Kahn kept quiet.
r Editor Perhaps when the bad news
keeps coming at you like a
nightmare, you have a tenden-
cy to hold things close to the vest. If so,
expect Cay Clubs to hold tighter and
tighter because there's no feel-good story
here.
The company and affiliated companies
are being sued for fraud over how the
condo units at Sombrero Cay Club were
marketed, and Key Hospitality, formed
strictly to invest in Cay Clubs, has decid-
ed to move on and dissolve rather than
invest in Cay Clubs.
That could be expected when, accord-
ing to Securities and Exchange
Commission filings, you have until
year's end to pay $74 million in loans
but don't have the money.
And the ultimate shocker developer
Pritam Singh, characterized by many
over the years as the personification of
big, bad builders is recast as a knight
on a white horse riding to the rescue of
Cay Club workers when he takes back
management of three Marathon resorts.
Again, Cay Clubs wouldn't talk.
But Pritam as super-hero? It was like
Hell froze over. With all of its problems,
that's one thing Cay Clubs was able to
accomplish. But no one was bragging.

Zappulla firing is official


He can still
appeal to board
to get rehired
By.ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

After a two-month suspen-
sion without pay, Monroe
County Budget Director Sal
Zappulla was formally fired
Friday.
County Fire Chief Wayne
Hinnant, acting as a hearing
officer for the county, recom-
mended immediate dismissal
for Zappulla, confirming allega-
tions by County Administrator
Tom Willi of unsatisfactory per-
formance, misconduct and
insubordination.
Willi suspended Zappulla in
August right in.the middle of
the 2007-08 budget process -


after Zappulla left a voice-mail
message for another county
employee saying he was
stressed out and talking about
death.
"The evidence shows that
over the past year Mr. Zappulla
has been counseled, progres-
sively disciplined, and referred
to the employee assistance pro-
gram in an attempt by the coun-
ty to change his behavior and
performance to meet acceptable
standards," Hinnant wrote.
Zappulla, Hinnant's ruling
continues, "has communicated
to other employees his wish for
death of certain county employ-
ees, including his supervisors."
Pages of e-mail exchanges
were part of the evidence
Hinnant considered, many
exemplifying Zappulla's frus-
tration in his job.


"Working for the govern-
ment is surely the worst experi-
ence of my life," he wrote in
April. "There is a lack of com-
petent people and a clear misun-
derstanding of just how much of
taxpayer's money is wasted. It's
a disgrace at every level."
Many of the heated
exchanges were between
Zappulla and County Engineer
David Koppel. -
"You have to work together,"
Koppel said Tuesday. "You
have to treat other people with
respect and dignity, and he did-
n't know how to do that."
Willi said there's no huge
rush to fill the job now that the
budget process is over.
"It's an important position,"
Willi said. "We're going to pro-
ceed with seeking a replace-
ment slowly and carefully."
After Zappulla's suspension,
Willi contracted with the


accounting firm of Bishop and
Rosasco to help finalize the
county's $373 million budget.
He says he's unsure whether to
continue the relationship with
the firm.
"I want to talk to the
[County] Commission about
whether to use a consultant," he
said. "From my perspective,
they seemed a comfortable third
party. I think [Peter Rosasco]
was good to be in the middle.
He put at ease some concerns
and was the voice of reason."
Rosasco's firm contracts
with Marathon and Islamorada
for financial services.
Zappulla is eligible for a
hearing' before the Career
Service Board, comprised of
people employed outside of
county government.
Zappulla did not return calls
for comment.

Project could bypass rules THE HEARING AID MAN


They require
setasides for
affordable units
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Planning
Commission, convening today
in Key Largo, is looking at pos-
sibly bypassing a relatively new
affordable-housing ordinance
for a major Upper Keys redevel-
opment project.
Ocean Sunrise Associates,
owner of the former Mandalay
Bay RV park at mile marker
97.5, proposes to donate more
than half an acre of the parcel to
the county, along with two mar-
ket-rate housing building-permit
allocations, in exchange for an
exemption from the county's so-
called inclusionary ordinance.
That law, passed more than a
year ago, requires redevelop-
ment projects to dedicate 30 per-
cent of the redeveloped units to


affordable housing.
The Planning Commission
meeting begins at 10 a.m. at the
Key Largo library.
Commission Chairman Jim
Cameron says the exemption
makes sense, seeing as the proj-
ect has been in the works for
years before the affordable-
housing ordinance became law.
Donna Bosold from the Craig
Co. said the developer has spent
more than $1.3 million on the
project since purchasing the
four-acre parcel in 2004.
Bosold, agent for Ocean
Sunrise Associates, said when
the developer first applied for
permits, there was no mention of
a pending ordinance requiring a
certain portion of the project be
set aside as affordable housing.
The proposed development
includes a 22-tnit multiple-fam-
ily market-rate complex, three
transient units and commercial
space to include a fitness area
and swimming pools.

House passes tax bill,
it now goes to Senate

A bipartisan coalition of
Republican and Democratic law-
makers in the Florida House
passed a property tax-relief plan
Tuesday sponsored by state Rep.
Ron Saunders, a Democrat who
represents the Keys, and Rep.
Dean Cannon, a Winter Park
Republican.
Saunders said in a prepared
statement it is expected to pro-
vide more than $11 billion in tax
relief during the next four years
and passed by a 108-2 vote.
If approved by the Senate, the
proposed constitutional amend-


ment would have to be approved
by voters Jan. 29.
Saunders said the plan pre-
serves the Save Our Homes
amendment that caps annual
property assessments at 3 percent
and provides a guaranteed Save
Our Homes benefit equal to 40
percent of the median value of
homesteaded homes.
It also has portability of accu-
mulated Save Our Homes bene-
fits so they can transfer up to
$1 million, to a new homestead
anywhere in Florida.
The plan also includes a 5 per-
cent assessment cap for all non-
homesteaded and commercial
properties.


Last year, the County
Commission approved abandon-
ing 1st Street and part of 2nd
Street, an important part of the
redevelopment plans. However,
some in the local boating com-
munity worry they could lose
access to the water.
"There's really not any other
public access areas around
there," said Gil Grove, who calls
himself a full-time cruiser. "It's a
very common spot used not only
by locals, but well known in the
boating community as a step-
ping-off spot for taking off to the
Bahamas."
There is a county ordinance
stipulating that county-owned
roads ending at the water cannot
be abandoned. However, the
County Commission approved
this abandonment in November
2006. According to the two reso-
lutions that handed the roads
over to the developers, the new
owners are required to allow
public access to the water
through them.
Also on tap today is an updat-
ed version of a proposed transfer
ordinance to provide incentives
for owners of mobile-home
parks to retain affordable hous-
ing.
Changes include language
that would make it easier for
small parks to receive the incen-
tive without coming up with a
full-scale development agree-
ment as well as removing lan-
guage that stipulated the park
owners donate the parks to the
county.
"This would allow the park
owners to sell the parks to the
county, not jiist donate them,"
Cameron said.

Web looked at for housing options


Clearinghouse
would list all
restricted units
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Like any company or entity
struggling to keep up with an
increasingly technological world,
city and county leaders on
Monday looked at a new-form of
advertising that could make lists of
available deed-restricted afford-
able housing more noticeable to
those who qualify: The Web.
The idea was born out of a

housing brainstorming session,
which, according to Key West
Alliance for Community Housing
member Dawn Thomburgh, is the
best way to make progressive
steps to try to solve Key West's
housing problems.
"My concept of the Web pres-
ence is something like Craig's
List," Thomburgh said. "It's just
in the preliminary stage, but the
idea would be: If you need hous-
ing, this is the place to go."
"If you had something that
included some of the govern-
ment-restricted houses, it would
help folks moving here," Keys
Federal Credit Union Chief
Executive Officer John Dolan-
Heitlinger said.
He would like to see an "all-
encompassing site" and alliance
'members agree.
The Web site, they said,
should have a search option for
one-, two- or three-bedroom
homes for either rent or owner-
ship, with a link for those inter-
ested to fill out an application.
Most alliance members agreed
such a list, while it would initial-
ly focus on the Lower Keys,


could grow into a countywide
tool.
The site would advertise units
that would meet area median-
income guidelines for affordable
designation.
While the idea of offering the
city the responsibility of maintain-
ing the site was proposed, it might
need to be managed by someone
outside a governmental entity for
legal reasons, members said.
Thornburgh said as long as a
site is up and running, the group's
best move would be to find pri-
vate volunteers that could update
and monitor the Web page.
The city of Key West's Web
site has a working list of deed-
restricted properties but the pro-
posed site would be available
units.
"We don't have a centralized
location for those," county
Housing Coordinator Lisa
Tennyson -said. It would be a
resource for "people who have
affordable units for rent and for
people who have deed-restricted
homes they would like to sell."

Found anchor

might be from 1800s


Determining
its specific age
is tough process
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburie@keysreporter.com

An archaeologist with the
state Bureau of Archaeological
Research says an anchor found
in Snake Creek last month might
date back to the mid-1800s.
Archaeologist Daniel
McClamon said a man called a
local marine salvager Sept. 23
after he was unsuccessful at
what McClamon said was an
illegal attempt to recover the
anchor from a protected area of
Snake Creek, which separates
Plantation Key from Windley
Key.
"Luckily for us, the captain
[of the salvage boat] recognized
this was not something this guy
should be bringing up and con-
tacted law enforcement,"
McClarnon said.
The anchor remains in a pro-
tected area of the creek as offi-
cials determine whether to
remove it.
McClarnon, a member of the
archaeological research bureau's
underwater team, said he recent-
ly inspected -the anchor while
visiting the Keys for a dive sem-
inar on heritage awareness.
"It was previously
unknown," McClamon said. "It
was probably buried in a good
bit of sand and part of it was
poking out."
According to McClamon, the
anchor measures about 7 feet by
6 feet and shows an admiralty
pattern and has a sliding iron
stock, a type called a yachtsman
anchor.


He said the size, style and
amount of encrustation suggest
the anchor dates to the middle to
late 1800s, but it could have
been reused by another ship rel-
atively recently.
"It could have been used as
late as some of the dredge work
in the Keys or as' early as some
of the early merchant runs
between Havana and the Keys."
McClarnon said.
"It would be tough to figure
out exactly when it dates to
without conserving it," he
added.
"Some of these anchors have
makers'marks on them with pre-
cise dates, but it's tough to get
fine details because of encrusta-
tion."
McClamon said the conser-
vation process would involve
keeping the anchor in an elec-
trolysis tank for about a year to
clean off the growth and get rid
of the salt.
But he said conservation is
something to think about "fur-
ther down the road".
"The fact that it's in a protect-
ed area now gives us some time
to think about it and do it the
right way," he said.
He said the anchor was dam-
aged in the illegal recovery
attempt, and he's not sure
whether there will be a second,
legal attempt at recovery.
"The anchor unfortunately
was damaged when he tried to
get it," McClarnon said. "That
means the corrosion of it could
accelerate. It's pretty well pro-
tected in the encrustation, but
once it's exposed it could rust,
which is detrimental. Right now
it's in the water, that's the best
protection."

Home restrictions


are disputed


DCA informs
condo owners
of non-compliance
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The state Department of
Community Affairs has notified
25 Saltponds Condominium
owners in Key West they are
believed to be in violation of a
1998 settlement the agency says
requires the owners to live in
their units.
That surprised some condo
owners, who claim the state is
reading the settlement wrong
and they're not renting units
illegally.
One of the 25 people who
received a letter, Fishermen's
Hospital Chief Executive
Officer Kim- Bassett, purchased
a unit before she got married
and moved to Marathon. Now
she rents her affordable unit out
for $1,525 a month to a local
couple. One tenant is a nurse.
She says she's lost money
most of the five years she's
rented it, considering mainte-
nance and other costs.
Her husband, Tom Mulhall,
wrote the settlement in ques-
tion.
At the time, he was general
manager of Argonaut Develop-
ment Group's Key West office,
the company that constructed
complexes in the area such as
the Saltponds and DoubleTree
Grand Key resort.
"The document does not
require you to live there the rest
of your natural life," he said. "It
only had to be your intent that it
would be your permanent living
situation" when it was pur-
chased. "There were no rental
restrictions whatsoever."
A sentence written in the
document states, "At time of
purchase, buyer will execute an
affidavit that the affordable
housing unit being purchased is
to be used and occupied solely
as the buyer's primary residence
for permanent living purposes."
The first portion of the state-
ment, Muhall says, clarifies that
permanent residency was only
required to be the original
intent. He also says more than


25 people are renting out it's
more like 35.
"It's just very frustrating,"
said Muhall, who now owns the
Apple (Macintosh) Store on
Truman Avenue in Key West.
"What are they going to do?
Kick 35 families out in the
street? Break 35 legal leases?"
Bassett's unit is deed restrict-
ed for 10 years, which expires
in a couple of years. But some
of the units are deed restricted
for 30 years.
The 25 letters sent last week
to the owners follow a single
letter dated Aug. 14 to Robert
Consroe, president of the
Saltponds Condominium
Association, as well as the
condo owners of unit 310 at
3635 Seaside Drive. That letter
cited the same alleged violation.
According to condo manager
Roger Holtkamp,'it was impos-
sible to know how some of the
units were being used.
"These letters are a sur-
prise," he said. "I was not aware
that there was going to be 25
letters going out. I can't stop an
individual owner if they want to
rent the unit. All 25 of the own-
ers may be living there."
Many owners do not live in
their affordable-housing deed-
restricted units, instead living
everywhere from Summerland
Key to New Jersey, according to
records from the Monroe
County Property Appraiser's
Office.
DCA has given the owners
21 days to comply with the set-
tlement or the state will move to
"extend the affordable housing
termination date of the individ-
ual unit to compensate for the
time period the unit was not
owner occupied." That could
lead to an administrative hear-
ing.
Holtkamp said the issue is
strictly between the owners and
the state, though the settlement
is between DCA and Key West
Salt Ponds II Ltd., contractor
Key Iron Works and the city.
The Saltponds complex has
168 units. According to the set-
tlement, 108 of those units
should be owner occupied and
designated affordable housing,
the DCA says.

Fruit stand


likely to move


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


An ongoing feud between
Crane Point Hammock in
Marathon and supporters of a
Saturday fruit stand there
appears to be heating up again.
The dispute involves propo-
nents of the sales put on by
mainland residents Peter and
Marie Pittman, who are feeling
pressure from Crane Point lead-
ers to move their location.
Hundreds of locals visit the
stand to buy fresh fruit each
weekend.
The Pittmans set up shop in
the right of way belonging to the
Florida Department of
Transportation adjacent to
Crane Point. But the nonprofit
organization is in the process of
purchasing the parcel for
$130,000.
Crane Point Executive
Director Keith Douglass .said
plans to acquire the 45,000-
square-foot plot of land from
DOT have been in motion since
before the Pittmans began sell-
ing fruit.
Supporters of the stand feel
Crane Point has been pressuring
it to move because the Pittmans
began donating proceeds to the
Education Coalition of Monroe
County following a falling out
with Crane Point.
"Crane Point's been actively
going about our business of
becoming -one of South
Florida's premier outdoor edu-
cation centers. We're not look-
ing at it in any other way except
that we're going what we're
supposed to be doing,"

Douglass said.
He said the main impetus for
purchasing the land came from
the scenic highway information
center planned to build on top of
the hammock's museum. It is
part of the city of Marathon's
beautification efforts.
"A lot of people are going to
be coming to that information
center. We agreed to provide the
space as a service to the commu-
nity," Douglass said. He said the
area would feature plantings,
benches and banner poles,
among other things.
"We just feel that this is state
property and 'Peter and Marie
have been there. They were per-
mitted by the DOT and got the
OK from the city of Marathon,
so:they come down here every
Saturday to help the communi-
ty," Education Coalition treasur-
er John Dick said.
Dick did acknowledge the
Pittmans have been offered sev-
eral other spots to host the sale,
including locations proposed by
the city and local Realtor Brian
Schmitt.
"It's just that they feel we're
coming down here and we have
to move around why?" Dick
said.
No move seems imminent
for now, though both Douglass
and Dick said the two groups
should be working together and
not feuding.
"We're both trying to do
things for children and to have
this situation is unacceptable,"
Dick said.

Citizens wants increase

By SAM NISSEN
sriissen@keynoter.com


The combustible relationship
between Citizens Property
Insurance Corp. and local advo-
cacy group Fair Insurance Rates
for'Monroe has once again erupt-
ed.


Their testy association reignit-
ed over the state-backed insurer's
application to raise business
windstorm insurance rates by an
average of 312 percent.
"Obviously, this will be disas-
trous for business," says Key
West guesthouse owner Heather
Carruthers, who sits on a Citizens
watchdog group appointed by
state officials.
The state formed Citizens in
2002 as the insurer of last resort


for those who cannot get property
insurance elsewhere. Thousands
of Keys property owners fall in
that category. -
Business windstorm insurance
rates make up about 1 percent of
Citizens' risk in the state,
spokesman Rocky Scott says. In
Monroe County, it fully insures
only 10 businesses, likely large
hotels, but provides only wind-
storm insurance to an untold num-
ber of businesses countywide.

New transformers

One hundred environmentally
friendly electric transformers
recently approved for purchase
by the Utility Board of Key West
have arrived and will soon be
installed throughout Keys Energy
Services' service area.
Electric transformers tradi-
tionally utilize a mineral oil-
based coolant, which is derived
from petroleum, when transform-


ing power to the necessary volt-
age level. The new transformers
will utilize coolants derived from
domestically grown soybeans, a
renewable energy source.
The new transformers are a
part of a test program for Keys
Energy, the power company from
the Seven Mile Bridge south
through Key West.
"Assuming the test program
proves the field performance of
the new transformers, I anticipate
Keys [Energy] will be able to
grow its green transformer pro-


gram and replace outdated petro-
leum-based transformers as units
near the end of their use," utility
Chief Executive Officer said
Lynne Tejeda said.
An electric transformer utiliz-
ing a mineral oil-based coolant
costs $1,168. A transformer uti-
lizing soybean-derived coolants
costs $1,246.
On May 23, the Utility Board
added a business priority to its
strategic plan to deal with climate
change. It calls for staff to "devel-
op a plan to reduce atmospheric
concentrations of greenhouse
gases ..."

don't know if anyone's got an
answer."
FIRM's answer: raise rates
gradually. But the state office in
charge of approving rate increas-
es says all parties need to hold on
a second.
The Office of Insurance
Regulation has two competing
duties. When Citizens was
formed, OIR was charged with
ensuring that when it filed rates
each year, Citizens kept pace with
private insurers' rates. But state
legislation last January mandated
all insurers reduce their home-
owners' insurance rates,. among
other consumer protections.
Since then, OIR "is turning
everything down," says Sam
Miller, spokesman for a lobbying
group for the Florida insurance
industry. And an OIR spokesman
stressed the increases have not
been made.
Citizens' commercial rates
"are probably about half the price
of going rates," says Tom Zutell,
deputy communications officer
for the office. "We have not
approved it yet, but it will be
competitive." -
Community leaders fear a
down Keys economy will hurt
businesses because of the
increasing strain of windstorm
insurance.
"It makes business that much
:more difficult," says Daniel
Samess, president of the Greater
Marathon Chamber of
Commerce. "It's a shame with
the progress we've made to see
another increase."
Some undeniably good news is
coming out of Citizens this fall.
Commercial account holders will
soon be offered multi-peril insur-
ance and can split their bill up by
quarter instead of paying annually.
All the while, insurers have
taken their Florida act elsewhere:
The trend of abandoning high-
risk coastal areas has spread up
the eastern seaboard. States
began managing the. necessary
expansion of joint underwriting
associations to manage coastal
county property insurance, just as
Florida has done in this county
for more than three decades.
This practice began in earnest
after the 2005 hurricanes.
Insurance companies altered one
of the most basic rules of the busi-
ness. The mantra of "the more
spread out the risk, the better"
became "the less risk, the better."
A hearing on Citizens' pro-
posed rate hike has not been set.

'Beware of flying lizard snot'

New Aquarius chief stresses research doesn't have to be stuffy


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Watch your step around
marine iguanas, scientist Ellen
Prager told a rapt audience at
Coral Shores High School.
"I felt this gooey, slimy thing
on my leg," recounted Prager,
now chief scientist for' the
Aquarius undersea research sta-
tion off Islamorada.
It seems the marine iguanas
of the Galapagos Islands -
"there were piles of them,"
Prager said devour vast
amounts of saltwater algae.
To rid themselves of the
excess salt, they sneeze it out.
Make the aquatic iguanas nerv-
ous, they sneeze even more.
So if taking a shoreside stroll
in the Galapagos, Prager con-
cluded, "Beware of flying lizard
snot."
Prager used her anecdote at
an Oct. 15 assembly hosted by
the Coral Shores Environmental
Academy to show the students
that science is more than micro-
scopes and incomprehensible
Latin names.
Popular movies often base
plots on science, Prager said,
flashing posters for "Jaws," "The
Day After Tomorrow" and "The
Poseidon Adventure" on the big
screen behind her.
A science connection "makes
[the movie] interesting but not
always accurate," she said.
"'Jaws' shows sharks as a
man-eating machine but now we
know that's not the case."
A depiction of the rogue wave
that capsized the cinematic
cruise ship Poseidon the wave
recreated as a towering but
smooth surfer's dream "was-
n't really using good, science,"
she said.
Some films often do work to
get the environmental facts right,
or at least close, Prager said. The
popular animated film "Finding
Nemo" about talking fish "actu-
ally had a lot of very good sci-
ence in it."
Making earth and marine sci-
ence something that can be
grasped and enjoyed by students
and everybody -else has become
the core mission for Prager's
career, which began with a stint

Prager said she initially was
"kind of intimidated by science..
I wondered, do I have what it
takes to be a scientist?"
Then she was assigned to help a

After her recent appointment
as chief scientist for the Aquarius

task will be communicating the
importance and practical benefits
of the lab's missions to the pub-

She encouraged the Coral

"Think about stories that
engage people but also might

Mariners expert
offers advice
on adjustment
Shorter days are one signal that
autumn has arrived in the Keys.
And with the end of daylight sav-
ing time Nov. 4, darkness will
arrive earlier.
Adjusting to the time change
can be difficult, according to
Geoff Hux, sleep technologist at
Mariners Hospital in Tavemier.
"Many people find it difficult
to adjust to the time change, both
in the autumn and spring," Hux
said. "With the fall time change,
the earlier light exposure in the
morning might cause people to
wake up earlier. That could trans-
late into increased daytime sleepi-
ness."
To ease the adjustment, Hux

give you an extra hour of sleep the
next morning and help reduce
your sleep debt.
He also suggests keeping your
sleeping area dark to prevent the
rising sun from entering the bed-

If your sleepiness continues a

from a sleep disorder. According
to the National Sleep Foundation,
nearly seven of 10 Americans

you may have a sleep disorder
include trouble falling asleep at

sudden jerks in your arms, legs or
body; grinding your teeth; anxi-

Raptors regain freedom


Keys man has 2
hawk encounters
within 3 days
The birds apparently have a
thing for Kirk Metzler of Conch
Key.
He works in maintenance for
the Monroe County School
District and, while working at
Stanley Switlik Elementary
School Oct. 12, found an injured
hawk at the school's entrance and
called Kelly Grinter, director of
the Marathon Wild Bird Center.
After she arrived, they were
able to comer the copper's hawk
after it hopped out of the bush and
ran across the schoolyard. It had
an injured wing and after some.
rehab to its sprained wing at the
Florida Keys Wild Bird
Rehabilitation Center in
Tavemier, it was expected to be
released.
Metzler had a second hawk


encounter three days later, Oct.
15, while driving home at mile
marker 59.5, a hawk flew into his
windshield.
After the initial shock wore off,
he debated with himself whether
to pull over and see if the bird was
alive; he didn't know how it could
possibly survive such a collision.
Well, to his surprise, there it
was, alive, but on its back in the
grass. He gently scooped up the
injured bird and put it in the pas-
senger seat of his car and drove
the rest of the way home.
As it just so happens, his
neighbor on Conch Key, Susie
Ward, has been a volunteer with
the Marathon Wild Bird Center
since 2000. She gave the bird an
injection of dexamethasone to
help reduce possible swelling
caused by the impact to the bird's
head on Metzler's windshield.
The stunned hawk was placed
in a quiet cage for the night and


the following day, the news was
good the hawk was still alive
and actually quite alert.
Ward drove the broad-winged
hawk to the Marathon Wild Bird
Center, where Grinter checked it
over. Seeing that it was OK, it was
released and headed south on its
migration.
As for Metzler, he's had no
bird run-ins since.

Miami team's
penalties help
Key West win
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Finding a watery Tommy
Roberts Memorial Stadium to
its liking, the Key West High
School football team amid
torrents of rain and aided by a
wave of penalties defeated


Miami Edison, 7-6, Friday
night to keep its Division 16-.
3A playoff hopes alive.
The game's only scoring
came late in an exasperating
first half that was poorly
played by both teams despite a
dry field. Every other play, it
seemed, flags were thrown,
most of them signifying penal-
ties against Edison.
Key West's touchdown-
set up on a long fumble return


by Michael Gallagher came
on a 12-yard pass from Phillip
Young to Ralph Major with
3:41 left in the half. Thomas
Daubs kicked the extra point to
give the Conchs a 7-0 lead.
But with 30 seconds left in
the half and lightning in the
distance, Edison scored a
touchdown that cut the lead to
7-6. A two-point conversion
trial failed.

White said the two separated

"I thought Tyler wasn't going
to get up, but to his credit he got

ordered to leave the metal
bleachers as the rain began.
After a long delay, the third
quarter finally began with anoth-

Red Raiders would go on to
have more than 20.
Edison got inside Key West's
5-yard line but was again thwart-
ed by penalties. Rain then fell in
blinding sheets, causing a suc-

When the rain finally sub-

Canes face St. John's


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Coral Shores High School's
football Hurricanes hit the road
Friday for the last time this fall as
an. invited guest to St. John
Neumann's Homecoming festivi-
ties in Naples.
The Canes are coming off a
28-16 loss at LaSalle (5-2) Oct.
19.
Coral Shores (3-4 overall, 2-4
regular season) finishes out the
regular season at home, with
games against Doral Academy
Nov. 2 and Marathon Nov. 9.
Getting a win at Naples won't
be easy St. John's Class A
Celtics were undefeated until los-
ing Monday to defending state A
champion Glades Day, 43-32.
Neumann went up 9-0 in the
game but Glades Day scored the
next 43 points before the Celtics
did some second-half scoring.
"St. John is a quality team that
runs out of the I formation," Coral
Shores coach Todd Gideon said.
"They're a very solid football
team but they'll have a tough
week playing Glades Day and
then facing us without a lot of
practice time."
Coral Shores moved the ball
effectively against LaSalle in
what Gideon described as one of
the year's best ground games. But
the Canes ground to a halt deep in


Royal Lion territory.
Junior kicker William Bassett
came though with three first-half
field goals on boots of 35, 25 and
38 yards. "He's a weapon,"
Gideon said.
"We went up there with the
intent to run and we did that pret-
ty well," the coach said. "But
we'd march down the field and
then stall. The red zone offense
was not productive."
He noted, "Penalties and mis-
cues hurt us. It was more things
we did wrong than what
[LaSalle's defense] did. Those are
the things we have to eliminate."
The Canes went into halftime
down just 14-9, but gave up two
breakaway runs for long touch-
downs in the second half.
"We had 'em bottled up but we
didn't make the tackles and they
squirted out," Gideon said.
Junior quarterback Chris Rini
found 6-foot-5 sophomore receiv-
er Rex Coleman for a 58-yard
touchdown pass in the fourth
quarter. "A real nice throw,"'
Gideon said.
The offensive line played well
overall, letting senior halfback
Jason Soares gain 74 yards on 11
carries. Julius Blankenship had 27
yards on four carries, and Rini
added 18 rushing yards.
Defensively, young lineback-
ers Courtney Dixon and LaDarius
Sanders topped the Canes in tack-
les.

Lewis reels in a winner


161.6-pounder
takes the first
Keys Swordfest

Do you want fish stories?
Because the inaugural Shimano
Florida Keys Swordfest (initially
called the Florida Keys 36-Hour
Swordfish/Deep-Drop
Tournament) had 'em.
The 36-hour tournament this
past weekend, ended with the
scales at Big Time Bait & Tackle
in Marathon seeing some of the
more strange fish to hit a touma-
ment weigh master ever.

see in the dark weren't enough to
overcompensate for the stories of
what happened while teams
fished offshore for a day and a
half.
There was hard-core trophy
winner Billy Tumbull of Duck
Key, awarded the impromptu tro-
phy because his team never
stopped fishing, from when it hit
the water Saturday morning until
the scales closed at 6 p.m.
Sunday.
What makes this a hard-core
story is two things: The team
managed to fish 36 straight hours
without even a single knock-
down, and it had a run-in with
one cranky dolphin (the Flipper
kind, not mahi mahi).
Turnbull said the dolphin
grabbed one of his baits and
spooled the reel clean of braided
line without being able to slow
him in the least. Then another
dolphin or possibly the same
one rammed the boat at 35
mph and flipped into the air.
It dam near smashed the hull
of their Yellowfin.
Then there was a freak water-
spout forming right on top of a
sportfisherman. The way the
story went for the hard-luck tro-

phy winner as told during the
awards ceremony at Castaway's
in Marathon was everyone got
drenched, and then the wind start-
ed ripping around and spun the
boat 180 degrees, fouling every
line in the water. Two of the lines
were now wrapped around the
pipe-welded tower to create a
mess from which it was tough to
recover.
The surprising story of the
tournament was that only two
swordfish hit the docks.
With 17 teams competing,
most people would have taken the
over if Vegas odds were set at two
fish. No surprise, though, that one
of the two swords was caught by
Capt. Marty Lewis aboard the
Main Attraction out of Key
Colony Beach. The team regis-
tered a sword weighing 161.6
pounds, which secured first place.
And Capt. Fuzzy Francois on
the Big Conch out of Key Colony
Beach landed a 218.8-pound
mako shark on monofilament
leader. The split second they
slammed the fish with the har-
poon (breaking the harpoon in the
process), the line snapped.
Luckily, it stuck with the main
line attached to the boat to secure
the fish and the trophy for largest
mako.
Coincidentally, one of the


prizes awarded for the mako divi-
sion was a Poon harpoon kit.
The Big Crank Award was
given for the team taking the
largest fish on a conventional
reel. This tournament allowed the.
use of electric assisted reels and
when considering the average
depth of fishing the bottom
was 800 to 1,000 feet using a
conventional reel should be com-
mended.
The Big Crank went to Robert
Dillon of Key Largo, who reeled
in a 20-pound-plus snowy
grouper in 800 feet using 3
pounds of weight.
Another fitting prize: Along
with a plaque, he got a Kristal
electric rod and reel combo.
Jack Carlson and Biff Goss
from Big Time Bait & Tackle put
together another winning tourna-
ment, with some major help from
Chris Decker and Cudjoe Sales.
Include in the mix marine
artist Joe Suroviec, who painted a
gorgeous original that graced the
back of the tournament T-shirts.
It looks like we have another
keeper in the major tournament
scene.
