Judge rules in Annex suit


Dismisses six
counts in dispute
over road access
By ALYSON CREAN
1. re.ir ri4 ir, :'"',1c

A federal court this week dis-
missed multiple counts against
the cilt of Ke\ West in a long-
standing banle over the owner-


ship of the road that leads to the
Truman Waterfront.
District Court Judge Michael
Moore dismissed six of 14
counts filed by the Truman
Annex Master Property Owners
Association, or TAMPOA.
"The court recognized that
federal court action is an unnec-
essary duplication of a state
court action," said Key West


City Attorney Shawn Smith.
The battle of wills goes back
several years, centering on a
stretch of Southard Street. The
road runs between luxury resi-
dences at Truman Annex, and is
the only access to Ft. Zachary
Taylor State Park and the city's
recently acquired Truman
Waterfront parcels.

infections

Health Department
and schools
are responding
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbumie@keysreporter.com

Monroe County health offi-
cials say they've documented
cases of drug resistant
Staphylococcus Aureus in the
Keys, but that the presence of the
bacterial infection is nothing new.
Methicillin resistant
Staphylococcus Aureus, or
MRSA, has garnered national
attention since being blamed for
the Oct. 15 death of a 17-year old
Virginia high school, student.
According to the Centers for
Disease Control's website,
MRSA infections often appear as
pustules or boils that are red or
swollen and are usually pus-
filled. Infections are often mis-
taken for a spider-bite or an
infected pimple, and can be
transmitted through skin-to-skin
contact or by sharing items or
surface areas that have come into
contact with the infection.
Mariners Hospital spokes-
woman Shelia Konczewski said

bit more than
they bargained

a large whale
snark came to

among the
largest fish
species in the
world and can

the 40-plus acres at the water-
front, but handed a good part of
it over to the city in 2000 as part
of a national Base Reuse and
Closure Act. In January 2006,
TAMPOA sued the city over,
what the group perceived as a
breach of contract when the city
did not come up with a traffic
plan for the park planned for the
Truman Waterfront.
The issue has gained com-
plexity over the years, and there
are several outstanding suits.
Tuesday's decision deals only
with the 14-count suit that was
filed in federal court.
"We're quite pleased with the
decision," said TAMPOA attor-
ney Bill Andersen. "They agreed
to hear six of the claims. Those
six claims will dispose of the
case."
In fairness to all parties,
Moore wrote in his decision, the
"city should not be made to
answer both in state and federal
court for disputes stemming
from the development agree-
ment" that is the core of the dis-
pute.


In 1942, the city handed the
parcel over to the Navy. In 1986,
the Navy sold part of the tract to
developer Pritam Singh who,
when he developed the housing
community, granted the Navy an
easement for access to the water-
front:

city has no authority to allow

seeking judgment that
TAMPOA is allowed to regulate
traffic on the street.
The claims that will still be
heard in a federal court involved
the Navy, and challenge the
Navy's right to grant an ease-
ment to the waterfront.
"This ruling," said Smith,
"will allow the federal case to
really focus on the ability of the
citizens to utilize [Southard
Street.]."
"We are asking the federal
court to specifically make a
judgment as to the fact that it is
a private street," Andersen said.
"That is the crux of the case."
According to the attorneys
for both sides, the state case is
on hold until the federal case is
heard. In the meantime, a medi-
ation meeting is set for Nov. 20.
"It would be in the best inter-
est of everybody if mediation
settled it," Andersen said.
"We still remain confident
that, at the end of the day when a
judge hears all the arguments,
they're going to rule in our favor
and that of the [Navy]," said
Smith.

improvement since prior evalu-
ations rated his job performance
as "less than acceptable" in sev-
eral areas.
"It's just not a fit," Vice
Mayor Cathi Hill said at the
meeting. "It's a square peg in a
round hole. We should end it
here."
Councilman Michael
Reckwerdt said Word's per-
formance has been "mediocre",
and that he doesn't approve of
the way Word has handled vil-
lage staff. He said Islamorada
needs a manager with more
enthusiasm and a "hand's on"
work style.
"I still believe he has his
merits," Reckwerdt said of
Word, "but you can't get away
from your nature."
Councilman Don Achenberg
called Word's attitude toward
the council one of "disaffec-
tion."
Mayor Dave Boerner and
Councilman Chris Sante said

support
extending the
WORD contract for
another six
months, with the condition that
Word would participate in
leadership training and under-
go another evaluation before it
could be extended a second
time.
But it was Word, who after
hearing more than an hour of
discussion, offered a solution
to the council.
"Mr. Mayor and council
members," Word said, "I
appreciate your frankness and
honesty, but you need to do
what's best for the village. I
think the best thing is that I
accept that I do not have coun-
cil support. I would entertain at
your pleasure that I continue
on until you either find another
manager or I have found anoth-
er job."
"I want what's best for the
community," he added.
Reckwerdt called Word's
recommendation "a wise
course of action for both par-
ties."
"Gary, you're one of the
classiest guys I've ever met,"
said Achenberg. "And that
showed just now."
Council took Word up on
his offer by voting 4-1 to let
his contract expire at the end of
the year.
Hill voted no, saying
Word's "at will" employment
should have a definite end
date.
Turbulent relations with the
council have marked Word's
two years as village manager.
Low performance ratings
from the council prompted
Reckwerdt to ask Word to
resign in January, following
problems with the sewer sys-
tem on Plantation Key. Word
submitted a formal letter of
resignation, but a month later,
Reckwerdt rescinded his
request and the council asked
Word to stay, citing improved
-job performance.
Word's contract includes a
$115,000 annual salary, use of
a village vehicle and a $2,700
monthly housing allowance.

'We need wider


array of tools'


Development
poses major
threat to state
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Failure to protect rural
Florida lands far from Monroe
County still can harm the
Keys, say two men with knowl-
edge of state and local issues.
"The more people they put
into South Florida, the more
pressure gets put on the Florida
Keys, no question about it,"
said Charles Pattison, executive
director of the 1000 Friends of
Florida advocacy group.
The 1000 Friends organiza-
tion this week issued an update
to its "Florida 2060" report
which predicts the amount- of
developed land in the state
could double within the next
half-century.
In the Keys, another 9,800
acres could be developed,
according to report estimates.
Florida Agriculture Com-
missioner Charles Bronson
agreed with the Friends call this
week to use "proactive and cre-
ative solutions to retain open
green space in Florida."
"Without rural land, the
environmental health and beau-
ty of Florida will degrade,"
Bronson said in a statement
released by the group.
Specifically, the report urges
more use of alternatives to out-
right land purchases such as
agricultural easements or miti-
gation banking that protect
acreage land from development.
The state does not have the
money to purchase all the land
necessary to protect Florida's
environment and character, said
J. Allison DeFoor II, a former
Monroe County sheriff and
judge now living in Wakulla.
"As more of these alterna-
tive preservation modualities
are used, that means more
money can be freed up for pur-
chases in areas like South
Florida and the Keys," DeFoor
said. "It's not all being gobbled
up by purchases in other parts
of the state."
DeFoor chairs the


EarthBalance group, and works
not only with 1000 Friends but
business groups like the Florida
Chamber of Commerce and
Associated Industries of
Florida.
Florida Forever, the state's
program to buy conservation
lands, grew out of the original
Preservation 2000 effort. From
the start, acquiring Florida
Keys lands for preservation
were a primary goal. Most of
North Key Largo was. placed
under state and federal owner-
ship under Florida Forever and
its predecessor.
Florida Forever expires in
2010, but likely will be
renewed.
"There are still a lot of pur-
chases in the Keys that need to
be made," said Pattison, former
director of planning for Monroe
County. "But you've got to
have the money."
An original allocation of
$300 million purchased more
than a million acres statewide,
Pattison said. A subsequent
allocation for the same amount
bought only half the acreage.
"The cost of real estate is
what's driving this now,"
Pattison said. "And it's a tough
time to be asking the state for
money."
The "Florida 2060" also
says the state must increase it's
regional planning efforts to
avoid piecemeal damages and
losses.
"That's where the biggest
issues like water quality and
sewage issues in the Keys come
in," Pattison said. "That's a
regional issue that should be a
priority for the state. The whole
point of the Area of Critical
State Concern [designation for-
Monroe County] was that the
state as a. whole values the
Keys. Then the state should
have a large role in addressing
some of those high-cost issues
like wastewater."
"We need a wider array of
tools" to protect land through
acquisition or easements,
DeFoor said. "Everybody of
agrees on the need for Florida
Forever but it's a question of
how much money they can
scrape up."

The clock waits

for no man

Call it the waiting game.
Every fall, the dark hour at mor beckons sleepy heads to stay
abed.
In past years, Halloween and the traditions of trick or treat
seemed a fitting way to usher in the end of daylight saving time
and return the clock to its nocturnal norm.
But, this year, thanks to our federal lawmakers and interven-
ers, we'll have those darkened mornings continuing another
week.
The "fall back" mantra for the return to regular time will come
on the morning of Sunday, Nov. 4, not the last Sunday in
October, which happens to be tomorrow.
With all the Fantasy Fest revelers sure to be late abed after
tonight's revelries, perhaps the change this year comes at an
opportune time?
Who wouldn't want an extra hour of naptime after the rigors
of that long walk, or the struggle to peer over the heads of the
Duval-crawl regulars who line the parade route tonight. -
Mother Nature, which has been unforgiving for the past week,
soaking Fantasy Fest and Goombay crowds, may show her
sweet visage today.
At least we hope so.
The revised forecast today calls for chance of showers, but not
the frog stranglers we've been faced with the past week.
Maybe a bit of Alice and the Looking Glass will help ward off
rain tonight.
And, if not, remember you can stay abed a bit longer on
Sunday and still rise and shine on the morrow.

Early bird gets the votes
While torturing analogies, the one about the early bird gets the
worms might well apply to the Key West election coming Nov.
6..
In today's Keynoter, reporter Kyle Teal details the high vol-
ume of absentee and early voting already recorded.
With a city-wide mayoral runoff, two city-wide referenda
gathering lots of of headlines and a close contest for city-wide
utility board runoff, predictions are for a large turnout.
Add the district 4 runoff between Barry Gibson and Richard
Klitenick, where a single vote separated them in the Oct. 2 gen-
eral election, and we have all the elements pointing to a strong
turnout for the Nov. 6 runoff.
Today's Keynoter includes coverage of those election races
and the issues.
We encourage voters to read this and other coverage on these
key races as we approach voting day Nov. 6.

ADA compliance is easier,
EDITOR:
I have read your recent article titled
"Disabled man fights ADA suits."
As the close friend of a quadriplegic and one
who has been involved in Americans with
Disabilities Act litigation, the article paiits a
distorted picture of the ADA legal process and
realities. Nowhere does it mention the simple
fact that history (particularly in Key West)
shows that unless an entity is sued, ADA com-
pliance will not occur.
Significantly, the article emitted to mention
that surely, after all these lawsuits, every busi-
ness in Key West is or should be aware of its
responsibility to at least begin steps toward
ADA compliance by removing barriers to access
(besides that, the ADA itself alerted everyone to
be in compliance by January 1993).
Instead, the vast majority of businesses con-
tinue waiting to get sued before any positive
steps are taken. Then they, the lawbreakers, cry
foul.
To avoid lawsuits, entities merely need to
assess their property for ADA violations, hire a
contractor, pull permits and begin barrier
removal. Diligent undertakings throughout the
preceding process would avoid lawsuits entirely.
What businesses really want is to replace the
lawsuit with a notice letter, thereby allowing


less costly than litigation
even more delays (and no input from the dis-
abled community). Wisely, the law does not
allow a federal law violator two bites of the
apple, and the assistance of counsel and experts
remains in the ADA enforcement arsenal.
Finally, I can state with absolute certainty
that attorney Brian Conway is a more-than-com-
petent attorney, personable and a gentleman who
has made a courageous journey deserving of
platitudes too numerous to mention in this con-
fined space. However, while producing an attor-
ney who happens to be disabled may garner
some emotional-reaction from the anti-ADA
enforcement forces, the law proceeds in the
manner drafted by Congress and interpreted by
the federal courts not by emotion.
The facts show that entities that fight ADA
compliance (or the enforcement mechanism)
spend prodigious amounts of money on legal
fees and costs. Those who settle quickly spend
significantly less while those who take the steps
to achieve ADA compliance spend nothing.
The more realistic question the article could
have addressed is: Why are ADA lawsuits still
necessary when everyone in the local business
community knows what needs to be done?

Here's an option for illegal aliens


EDITOR:
SI have been following the unending contro-
versy on the subject of illegal aliens. I keep hop-
ing someone will propose my idea but I have
yet to see it in print or hear it mentioned.
I think I have a solution to the whole illegal-


Ros-Lehtinen out of touch
EDITOR:
U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen stood with
President Bush, voting against expanding the State
Children's Health Insurance Program to include
10 million children in the children's health insur-
ance program.
I suppose it is understandable that she did; she
is a Republican. But many other Republicans did
join almost all the Democrats who voted for this
expansion. They seem to have seen that sick chil-
dren should be cared for whatever one's position
is on universal health care.
This isn't a Republican or Democratic issue. A
recent CBS poll shows that eight' out of every 10
Americans support the kids' health-care bill
passed by the Democratic Congress, including an
overwhelming majority of Republican voters:
Why is Ileana so out of touch?
I fear she is willing to spend money to support
the misguided war in Iraq, but can't bear to spend
money on children out of some dogmatic loathing
for "socialized medicine."
I wish we had our own representative again. It
was nice when Monroe County was represented
by someone from here.

alien mess. It is too simple and logical to, ever
be implemented but I'll share it anyway,
If you are in this country illegally, you must
declare yourself. You may then get a one-year
visa, same as Canadian citizens, but you must
return to your country of origin once a year to
renew it.
While you are employed in this country, you
are a guest. You do not pay Social Security or
income taxes, but you will pay 40 percent of
your wages to the U.S. Treasury. You will
receive no benefits, but you will be able to work
openly without fear of being deported.

Keys alumni lead the charge


EDITOR:
Hats off to college counselor Chris
Harris for making this year's college
fair at Coral Shores High School so
successful.
This year, Chris had a lot of extra
organizing to do as more than 15
alumni volunteers from the community
came to the fair to share information
about their out-of-state college or uni-
versity.
Thanks also go to Beth Kamestein,
who led the charge to get the word out
throughout the Upper Keys to give the
students an opportunity to learn about
so many terrific schools they wouldn't
have normally heard so much about.
All students in grades nine to 12 at
Coral Shores had an excellent opportu-
nity to pick up college application
information and talk to alumni from a
wide variety of both private and public
post-secondary schools from all over
the country.
And of course, thanks to all the
alumni who freely gave their time and
energy to make the college fair so suc-
cessful.
Hopefully next year, Marathon and


Key West high schools will hold
enlarged college fairs to provide their
students with a similar enhanced out-
reach opportunity so community alum-
ni can interact with college-bound stu-
dents.

Cleanliness noticed
EDITOR:
In your Oct. 20 edition, under Keys
Business, you ran a great picture of a
committee of the village of Islamorada
presenting an award to a local business
for improving its own property and
making it more enjoyable for residents
and visitors alike.
It is very.pleasant to drive through
the village and not see any eyesores or
businesses in disrepair.
Congratulations to the citizens of
Islamorada for having such a forward-
thinking plan for keeping their little
part of the world a beautiful place.

Put citizens above loyalty


EDITOR:
Regarding the article "Courthouse
contractor sues" in the Oct. 24 edition,
the two most important sentences and
the essence of the issue is:
A lawsuit filed by contractor Tower
Group says "... the actions of the coun-
ty and its representatives transcend
mere bureaucratic lethargy and
bungling" and [accuses] the county of
delaying the project; and "The Tower
Group claims the county has, from the
beginning of the 2004 contract, inter-
fered with Tower's right to proceed
with the [Key West courthouse] work
in a timely fashion."
Of course these statements are
accurate. And sadly, the reason is obvi-
ous. It's the same reason all the other
county's capital projects have prob-
lems (requests for proposals need to be
re-bid, firehouses built without com-
plying to all the needs of the fire
departments, projects budgeted too low
because bids 'were not properly written
or reviewed, causing cost overruns and
grand-jury investigations).
A road engineer does not a skilled,
qualified, competent Engineering
Department' director make. Neither
does County Engineer Dave Koppel's
penchant for grandiose inflammatory
adjectives, his "ah shucks, everybody
picks on me" mantra or his govern-
ment-by-newspaper attitude.
The Engineering Department direc-
tor is making decisions our wallets
can't support or sustain. At what point
does county leadership wake up and
realize they are responsible for the


actions of their employees? How many
more change orders and cost overruns
will it take?
Personal loyalties are admirable but
belong positioned second to leader-
ship's obligation to the welfare of all
the county's citizens and activities. The
alternative is that for all the good lead-
ership does, they will be forever only
remembered for the bad.,

WARNING

Drinking distilled spirits, beer (including non-
alcoholic), coolers, wine and other alcoholic
beverages during pregnancy may increase the
risk of permanent birth defects.







An initiative of the Florida Keys Healthy Start Coalition, Inc. Zero Exposure Project


, These signs will be popping up in establishments in unincorporated Monroe, Key
West and Islamorada where alcohol is sold,

Alcohol-warning laws protect unborn children


EDITOR:
The Florida Keys Healthy Start
Coalition would like to take this opportuni-
ty to thank Monroe County, the city of Key
West and the village of Islamorada for
unanimously passing an ordinance requir- -
ing that signs warning of the dangers to the
unborn baby when drinking alcohol during
pregnancy be publicly posted in establish-
ments selling alcohol.
There are 19 states plus the District of
Columbia that mandate health warning
signs be posted about the consumption of
alcohol during pregnancy. While Florida
does not have this mandate, Monroe
County,. Key West and Islamorada have
taken a responsible step in the prevention


of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders by
adopting this ordinance.
To assist in the program, the coalition is
providing a sign that has the required
wording, as well as added graphics to com-
municate this message. The tax-deductible
administrative fee for the sign is $25. As a
convenience, representatives from the
Florida Keys Healthy Start Coalition are
visiting area establishments with the signs.

Grace Jones Daycare would like to
thank Angel Cabrera and John
Mahoney and family (Habitat for
Humanity) and John Rao (Blue Water

We would also like to thank
Richard and Kathy Tallmadge of The
Restaurant Store in Key West for help-
Sing and supplying us with the correct
items needed in our beautiful kitchen
to make nutritious meals for our chil-
dren. With their knowledge of exactly
what was needed, they saved a lot of
added expense.
Thanks also to Pink Gidseg (board

EDITOR:
SWell, it's 5:30 a.m. and I just got my
Wednesday-moring wakeup call courtesy
of the Marathon Garbage Service.
Now, I fully realize these fine folks pro-
vide a much-needed and necessary service
to our community, and we all appreciate
the fact that we can just put our trash out
and it magically disappears every week,
most of it to the dump and the rest ending
up in next week's yard sales.
But for the life of me I don't understand
why, in the pre-dawn hours while I am fast
asleep, with dreams of Anna Nicole and I
riding horses naked on a Bahamas beach,
do I have to be awakened by the shrill bark
of the back- up beeper from the garbage
trucks.
Here's the scenario: Its 5:30 a.m., it's
pitch black outside and here's this multi-
ton garbage truck roaring backward down
61st Street in Marathon, bright yellow
lights flashing, lighting up the early-morn-
ing sky like a disco hall, two guys hanging
off theback yelling back and forth at each


other, and that beeper beepin' like a giant
alarm clock without a snooze button.
Am I to assume the beeper is intended
to alert people that they are backing up?
Let's pretend for the moment that there is
no beeper. Now, I don't know about you
all, but if I'm outside in the middle of the
street at 5:30 a.m., sneaking out of the
house in my Speedos to pick up my news-
paper, and I can't see or hear this huge
vehicle roaring backward down the street,
yellow lights flashing so bright they could
be seen from the space station, two guys
hanging off the back talking, laughing at
the site of me in a thong bent over picking
up my paper, and I should happen to get
run over, then maybe, just maybe, I don't
deserve to be walking around on this plan-
et.
So if I seem a little testy today, or fall
asleep driving across the Seven Mile
Bridge, don't blame me. Blame it on the
beeper.

Permit backlog could prove costly

This means the village could

Planning Services Director
Edward Koconis said that under
administrative relief, property
owners in the system for four
consecutive annual allocation
periods can apply for a public
hearing, where the Islamorada
Village Council will decide
whether to issue a permit, pur-
chase the property or "any other
reasonable alternative."
"We haven't done one yet,"
Koconis said, "so we're going to
need a little more thought on how
it's going to be implemented."
Because the Keys were
declared an area of critical state
concern, the state Department of
Community Affairs (DCA) deter-
mines the number of building per-
mits that can be allocated in
Islamorada, and manages the allo-
cations under the Building Permit
Allocation System, or BPAS.
Until now, BPAS allowed 28

Please ask us about our SLIDING FEE SCALE for the uninsured and underinsured,
and CareNet, a discount health program for you and your family.
We provide quality healthcare to all residents and visitors of the Florida Keys.


By 2009, the Village- of
Islamorada could.be forced to
compensate dozens of property
owners waiting in the lengthy
line for building permits, with or
without any funding help coming
from the state.
A state limit on village build-
ing permits has left many-proper-
ty owners frustrated over the
inability to build, and obliges
Islamorada to provide so-called
administrative relief to applicants
who've been waiting for a permit


Critical concern
Purdo says the village should
instead focus on getting the state
to drop its critical concern desig-
nation, because he said it has
done little to nothing to increase
the amount of affordable housing
in the Keys.
"I ask this question constant-
ly," said Purdo, "what has this
area of critical concern done for
the Village of Islamorada and the
Keys?
"Our village is broke. With
administrative relief, we have to
either purchase the property or
give them a permit. We haven't
Sgot the permits and we haven't


housing.
But because the number of
market rate applications far
exceeds the number of affordable
applications, dozens of alloca-
tions have accumulated each year,
leaving 144 applicants in line for
market rate permits, and zero in
line for affordable housing.

Affordable housing
The inequity prompted the vil-
lage Planning and Development
Services Department to push for
a change, which Koconis said
was recently approved by council
and by the DCA. Starting in the
fourth quarter of 2007, the village
will designate 22 of its 28 alloca-
'tions to market rate permits, and
only six to affordable housing.
Koconis said the added market
rate allocations will help, but
won't allow Islamorada to avoid
administrative relief.
S"By 2009, there is a very good
possibility that we're not going to
have enough permits," he said,
"unless we work out something
with the state of Florida."
The controversial shift in allo-
cations has angered some afford-
able housing advocates who say
it will only hurt locals already
struggling to stay in the Keys.
"What it's doing is basically
taking permits form people that
need housing here in the Keys
and giving it to people that
already have money, in order to
satisfy this BPAS problem, this
administrative relief," said Dave
Purdo, Affordable Housing
Citizens' Advisory Committee
vice chair. "If we had a developer
who came in here today and
wanted to build 40 units of
affordable housing, we wouldn't
have the permits. I understand
why they're doing it, but it's not
solving our problem."


got the money. That alone tells
you the system's flawed."
Purdo said the problem could
get worse because the state is
threatening to revoke 200 permits
countywide if the Keys fail to
meet a looming 2010 deadline for
advanced wastewater compliance.
"They give us something that
can't work and then they're going
to hold it over our heads," Purdo
said. "I'm just beside myself with
it."

Financial Impact
According to Koconis, the
financial impact that administra-
tive relief could have on the vil-
lage is unclear. Some of the bur-
den might be shouldered by state
agencies, but that amount is
undetermined.
"Each individual will need to
choose whether or not to apply
for administrative relief, and then
individual properties have differ-
ent variables that could determine
what action the village council
would choose after each associat-
ed public hearing," he said.
"Likewise, characteristics of
properties vary and therefore
funds from other agencies could
vary with each property.".
Mayor Dave Boemer said he's
working to find a permanent
solution for the problem that he
called "the 800 pound gorilla in
the room."
"I disagree with the concept of
taking the administrative relief
allocation out of the affordable
housing group," Boemer said.
"We're putting a band-aid on it.
We're not addressing the problem."
Boemer said he's been talking
with staff from Florida's Depart-
ment of Community Affairs, the
agency that oversees critical con-
cern compliance, to get them
involved in administrative relief.
"Administrative relief is
something that we're facing
because of our BPAS system. It's
set up by DCA as a consequence
as the whole process. DCA has
created this situation, DCA needs
to step up to the plate and work
with us on how to resolve it,"
Boerner said.
"This is an issue that has to be
dealt with at the state level; we
can't deal with it locally. We
don't have the money to do the
battle." Boemer said. "I've been
on the phone with [DCA] several
times about the issue. I hope we
can resolve this and I think we
can. I think DCA will work with
us too."

Board approves raises


By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbumie@keysreporter.com


Monroe school district princi-
pals blasted some school board
members at this week's meeting in
the wake of a press report that those
board members planned to reject
proposed raises for district staff.
The Monroe County School
Board- unanimously approved a
teacher contract and salary sched-
ule on Tuesday, but board mem-
bers John Dick and Steven
Pribramsky say they're still con-
cerned about uneven health insur-
ance costs and administrative
supplemental pay.
The new contract and sched-
ule passed 4-0, with board mem-
ber Debra Walker absent from the
meeting.
The schedule includes a 3 per-
cent raise for teachers and other
school staff, and increases entry-
level teaching salaries from
$40,291 to $41,500. The increase
is retroactive to July 1.
The unanimous approval
came as a surprise to some teach-
ers and administrators, who
spoke out at the meeting after an
Oct. 23 story in a Key West news-
paper quoted Dick and
Pribramsky as saying they
planned to vote against the con-
tract, and would also push to have
administrative stipends removed.
Principals from all three
Upper Keys schools spoke
against, what they called "inap-
propriate" comments from
Pribramsky and Dick.
"Before you put something in
the paper about my salary," Key
Largo School Principal Annette
Martinson said, "have the consid-
eration to ask me about it. I'll be
glad to share it with you,"
"Do you think I'm overpaid?"
asked Coral Shores Principal Ron
Martin. "I read the paper this
morning and felt like I was
stabbed in the gut again. I earn
every cent I make."
Martin said he sometimes
works 80-90 hours per week, and
challenged the board to "follow
us principals around for a week to
see what we do."
Plantation Key School
Principal Vanessa Strickland said
that after 18 years of teaching,
she took a pay cut to become an
administrator and provide
schools with leadership.
"Administrators are not here
to escape work. Trust me. Quality
of life does not improve with this
job," she said.


Mike Henriquez, director of
instructional services, told the
board that supplements tend to
require large amounts of addi-
tional work for meager stipends,
and that administrators are often
forced to take on the supplements
that teachers don't want.
- Dick and Pribramsky said
they never planned to deny a
raise to teachers or administra-
tors, but they do want a review of
health insurance costs and admin-
istrative supplements.
"I am not against the raise,"
said Dick, "that's fine with me.
But we've gone on and on with
supplements and healthcare. I
want to see that solved before we
move on."
"I understand people's feel-
ings were hurt, and I'm sorry for
that," Pribramsky said. "To me,
the biggest issue with the supple-
ments is there are certain supple-
ments that are in place because of
tradition, and it's not always
equal who makes what. I want it
to be fair; I want it to be transpar-
ent and easily understood."
School Superintendent Randy
Acevedo said his impression was
that the board had always intend-
ed to wait until November and
December to discuss health insur-
ance practices and supplements.
He urged the board to proceed
with caution before deciding to
take away supplements.
"We have always had higher
turnover at the teacher level,"
Acevedo said, "but be very care-
ful that you don't create two
problems. There's not been high
administrative turnover."
Acevedo's discretionary
spending was also challenged by
Pribramsky and Dick, after he
presented a proposal to hire Ann.
Henson, a former staff writer for
the Key West Citizen and The
Reporter, as a public relations/
communications consultant for
the board.
Dick said the district already
pays Islamorada public relations
consultant Nancy Lucas $20,000
per year, and questioned the need
to spend money on public relations.
Pribramsky and board mem-
ber Duncan Mathewson said they
were unaware that Lucas worked
for the district, but Acevedo's dis-
cretionary budget allows him to
hire outside 'consultants for
$20,000 or less without consult-
ing the board.
"I think it's real important to


the board to know who's working
for the school district," said
Mathewson. "This is the first
time I've heard about this. I don't
like the term PR to begin with."
Acevedo defended his deci-
sion to hire Lucas, saying'he "fol-
lowed board policy to the T."
"Schools should be able to put
out press releases," said Dick.
"You can even use students from
journalism class. I'm not happy
with the raises we gave to every-
body, and here we are hiring PR."
Pribramsky requested the
board go line by line through
Acevedo's budget to get a better
understanding of his spending, but
board Chairman Andy Griffiths
suggested creating a broader poli-
cy to address the issue.
Pribramsky also asked for
monthly budget amendments,
which are usually approved with-
out discussion, to be pulled from
Tuesday's consent agenda.
He voted to approve the
amendments after saying he
"expects departments to live
within their budgets," and asking
the board to discuss all future
budget amendments before
approving them.

Navy to revisit flight patterns

By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.comr


It was designed as a simple
information session, but Navy
officials say they are now mulling
ideas thrown out by nearby resi-
'dents after a public workshop
Tuesday. The Naval Air Station
Key West hosted an information-
al expo at the Doubletree Grand
Key Resort in Key West with the
goal of helping locals understand
noise and safety issues surround-
ing the training facility.
"It was a two-way conversa-
tion," said NAS spokesman Jim
Brooks. "It was designed for
strictly informational purposes,
but we did take comments."
Specifically, says Brooks, they
will be looking at the departure
pattern over Tamarac Park, a
mobile home park on Geiger
Key, just east of the air base.
They will also be looking at
arrival patterns on what the Navy
calls Runway 7, to see if there are
ways to alter those patterns with-
out just shifting the noise to
another neighborhood.
"Ultimately, when we look at
recommended changes," Brooks
said, "the number one thing we

look at is whether it impacts
training. Secondly, we look at
whether it has an impact on
another neighborhood."
The March release of the
newly updated Air Installation
Compatible Use Zone, a 200-plus
page document of decibels and
flight patterns, prompted a flurry
of complaints from residents
whose homes are within the high-
noise contours.
The document is an update of
contours established in the Keys
in 1977, a change that was likely
overdue because technology has
made enormous advances in the
past 30 years.
Navy officials have been urg-
ing Monroe County to adopt the
newest AICUZ, since it's consid-
ered a tool for planning surround-
ing communities. Though the
Monroe County Planning
Department currently uses the
1977 AICUZ as part of its review
on new development or redevelop--
ment, county officials have been
hesitant to adopt the new version.
In fact, at a September meet-
ing of the Monroe County
Commission, Growth Manage-
ment Director Andrew Trivette
recommended against adopting
it. He explained that its adoption
could leave the county open for
potential takings cases if the
county signed on to a policy that
Should lower resale values.


"AICUZ is to protect the Navy
from infringing redevelopment,"
Brooks said. "Case in point: King's
Pointe Marina. It was a commer-
cial working waterfront, now you
have high end residential."
The Navy registered their
opposition to that Stock Island
redevelopment project with a let-
ter to the state's Department of
Community Affairs.
According to Capt. J. R.
Brown, current commander of
the base, the study is compiled
based upon the type of aircraft,
the number of planes, and the
operations they undergo. This
AICUZ, he said in a letter to a
Stock Island resident, was drafted
with noise levels of F-18 "super
hornets."
Tamarac resident Paul Caruso
has complained that the study was
based upon the sound emitted by
F-18s and not the "super hornets."
Caruso posted a Web site -
stoptheplanes.com several
months ago to lodge a number of
complaints about the AICUZ and
the methods used to put it together.
The next step that Brooks say
he hopes will get the county clos-
er to adopting the new contours is
a Dec. 5 joint workshop involv-
ing the County and the Key West
City commissions. That meeting
will be held at the Harvey
Government Center in Key West.

Vasil pushes for study

Proposes
in-house
book keeping
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


With a recently passed budg-
et at 10 percent below rollback,
Marathon City Councilman Don
Vasil declared at Tuesday's regu-
lar council meeting he would be
"coming after another 10 per-
cent" next year.
The possibility now exists a
portion of those potential sav-
ings may be targeting the con-
tract of the company responsible
for preparing the city's annual
budget-Bishop, Rosasco and Co.
This possibility arose after the
Council approved a resolution
directing staff to conduct a cost
analysis and feasibility study
regarding book keeping func-
tions being performed in-house.
Vasil said he sponsoredthe
resolution because of how other
communities, such as Islamorada
and Key Colony Beach, were
preparing their finances. He told
the Keynoter it was intended
strictly for staff to explore the
possibility of savings in the


finance department.
"If the review comes out that
we're getting a value than I've
done my duty for the public,"
Vasil said.
Finance Director Peter
Rosasco took exception to the
resolution at the meeting, saying
he would have provided figures
upon request. He told council at
the meeting it would cost the
city $84,000 annually to employ
the same two bookkeepers for
which he bills the city only
$65,000.
Rosasco told the Keynoter
both are part-time for him. At a
starting rate of $14.42 per hour
with the city, plus benefits, he
said, the cost for their services
would be greater. He also said he
prefers to have control over his
own employees.
"I prefer to have a function
under my roof because if they
work for the city and they're
doing work I have to supervise,
I'm still responsible. It's much
easier to control an engagement
where I have my own people
working for me," he said.
The resolution passed by a 3-
2 vote, with Vice Mayor Marilyn
Tempest and Councilman Pete


Worthington dissenting.
Tempest said she felt the reso-
lution was "flawed" because it
singled out a particular depart-
ment and that a significant
amount of bookkeeping functions
were already performed in-house.
"I have mixed emotions
about it. We do have a healthy
bill but you get what you pay
for," she said.
Worthington said he felt clos-
er to next year's budget season
would be a more appropriate
time for the resolution.
"I think Rosasco is doing a
great job. There's a lot on the
city's plate right now and I don't
Ssee anyone on staff who can take
this on tomorrow," he said.
Councilman Mike Cinque said
he supported the resolution
because it was Council's obliga-
tion to look after taxpayer dollars.
Rosasco said similar circum-
stances have caused problems in
the past, but he doesn't feel that
will be the case in Marathon.
"If it created problems, I might
be in a situation where I don't
want to continue on," he said.
"My hunch is when everyone
looks at the reality of the situa-
tion, it'll end up staying like it is."
The finance department con-
tract this year is for $382,227.

Business vs. planning experience frame debate


Utility race
contestants
cite differences
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The race for perhaps the most
sought-after Utility Board seat
in Key West history is nearing
its end, and candidates Charles
Lee and Ty Symroski have made
their differences well known.
The Utility Board sets policy
for and oversees Keys Energy
Services, the Lower Keys and
Key West public power compa-
ny.
Lee, a Realtor, has strong
experience in the business world
and says that would serve the
city well if he's elected to the
Group 1 seat in the Nov. 6
runoff election.
Symroski,, a former city,


county and state planner, says
his governmental experience is
essential for the Utility Board.
Lee is a strong supporter of a
fiber-optics plan that will even-
tually make the island wireless
for the Internet and allow utility
workers to control residential
utilities with the push of a but-
ton.
He also supports a new busi-
ness relationship between Keys
Energy and Reef Relief in which
the two are partnering on a pilot
solar-power project.
Symroski says he supports
the proposal, as well, adding
that not only will it make the
island more energy efficient, but
it will also heighten the attrac-
tion of Key West to potential
visitors.
"It would complement our
tourist draw if we were known
as a place where you could see


these innovated technologies,"
he said. "They can come to see
our history, and they will also
see our future."
Symroski believes the board
already has enough business

interests as is, with recently re-
elected Charlie Bradford, a
banker, and Peter Batty, a
Realtor.


"I offer 23 years of experi-
ence of working for people,
working on boards and chairing
committees in boards," he said.
"I have a solid reputation of
being a consensus builder.... I
am a person who is trained to
look to the future and make a
strategic plan."
Symroski is also focused on
spreading awareness of global
warming: "I think the biggest
issue is global warming,"-he
said. "It has to be addressed in
the context of utility rates."
Robert Padron previously
held Seat 1 but declined to run
again.
The Oct. 2 general election
included former City Com-
missioner Harry Bethel, who
tied with Lee at about 30 per-
cent, while Symroski claimed a
healthy lead with about 39 per-
cent. The tie is the only docu-
mented one between candidates
in the history of Key West elec-


tions.
To break the tie and deter-
mine who's name would make
the Nov. 6 runoff, Supervisor of
Elections Harry Sawyer decided
a candidate's name would be
drawn from a hat after research-
ing state- statute, which man-
dates a Utility Board tie be set-
tled by lot.
City Clerk Cheri Smith drew
Lee's name, and Lee says it's
been a "turning point" in the
momentum of the election.
"I'm very optimistic," Lee
said. "I think drawing the name
out of the hat was a big turning
point in my favor. People like to
go with the winner."
Both candidates have been
zealously studying board reports
and attending meetings to edu-
cate themselves on the issues,
they say.
Symroski has had to replace a
good number of his signs, as
they're biodegradable.

'Young blood' in District 4


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The difference was a single
vote between Key West City
Commission candidates Barry
Gibson and Richard-Klitenick.-
Now the budding politicians
seeking the District 4 seat are
sprinting toward the Nov. 6
runoff, knocking on doors and
shaking hands everywhere they
go. -
In the Oct, 2 general election,
Klitenick,' Gibson and attorney
George Maurer hoped for a
majority of votes to replace 16-
year Commissioner Harry
Bethel, who ran for Utility
Board instead of re-election (he
lost the Utility Board race).
Gibson received 626 votes
and Klitenick 625, both slightly
more than 45 percent, forcing
the runoff since no one received
a majority. Maurer, with 121
votes, or 8.82 percent, was
knocked out of the campaign.
Gibson, owner of Shades of
Key West, and Klitenick, a
lawyer, have solidified their
stances on issues from housing
to quality of life.
Gibson says his long-term
solutions to increasing afford-
able housing would be trying to
get the state to bolster the
William E. Sadowski Affordable
Housing Trust Fund and follow-
ing up on recent discussion in
the city's Community Housing
Committee about increasing a
penny to either the bed tax, real
estate transfer tax or sales tax on
alcohol.
He doesn't, however, think
the city should be held responsi-
ble for producing housing.
Rather, it should find locations
for it.
"The city doesn't have the
money to do that," Gibson said.
"We have to .identify land and
have the developers come in and
build it."
Klitenick stresses enforcing
deed restrictions on affordable
homes and exploring locations
on top of buildings in the com-
mercial district that would be
ideal for affordable units. He
also emphasizes the importance
of pushing an ordinance that
would require all redevelopment
in Key West be 30 percent
affordable, and making sure it
avoids watered-down revisions.
Gibson, 47, also said the city
needs more units for rent and
that height variances should be a

possibility in New Town for cer-
tain projects, though not in Old
Town.
At the beginning of the race,
Klitenick, 44, named cleaning
up the city as his major issue. He
a recent city cleanup opened his
eyes to the littering done by
vagrants in the city.
"The debris and the refuse
that was there was unbeliev-
able," he said. "Believe me,
that's not from the peacekeeping
taxpayers of our town."
Gibson said the
Southernmost House on Upper
Duval should obtain the neces-
sary transient rental licenses for
its 14 units it currently has
two licenses. He also said he is
opposed to the guesthouse
becoming a 150-seat restaurant.
"I support the neighbors," he
said.
Klitenick the Planning
Board chairman also voiced
his opposition to the plan, at an
Aug. 30 Planning Board meet-
ing.
"I was the-onily Planning
Board member to openly state
that I didn't see how the adverse
effects could be mitigated and I
couldn't support [the proposal]
as it was," Klitenick said.
On a referendum question
asking if the city charter should
change to require that voters

tion or acquisition, Gibson said
he is a founding member of the
group that garnered the neces-
sary signatures to put it on the

"I totally support the right of
the people to have a voice,"
Klitenick said, adding that the
referendum, however, could
inhibit the city from acquiring
land from a property owner for
affordable housing.
Gibson has raised $18,575 in
campaign funds while Klitenick
has collected $28,895.
"Our neighborhood is excited
to have a new commissioner,"
Gibson said. "Whether it's
Richard or me, the district is
excited to have some young

reasons we had a 60 percent
turnout" for the Oct. 2 election.

Mayoral race shows divide stirs voters


And numerous
ballots already
cast early
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


The votes are already rolling
in for the second go-around in
Key West's runoff election.
As of Thursday, 54 percent of
the 2,456 absentee ballots sent
out have already been returned
to the Monroe County Super-
visor of Elections Office.
Additionally, 254 people have
already voted at the office's
Whitehead Street location.
That means that of the 12,936
voters registered for the Nov. 6
runoff election, 12.3 percent
have already cast ballots.
SIn the Oct. 2 general election
for mayor, no one won a majori-
ty of votes. Incumbent Morgan
McPherson and Jimmy Weekley
were the top two voter-getters,
sending them to the runoff. They
- along with candidates in
runoffs for the City Commission
District 4 and Utility Board
Group 1 seats are pushing to


get more voters to the polls.
It looks like they might suc-
ceed, since 497 more people are
registered for Nov. 6 than were
signed up for Oct. 2's general
election.
The mayoral campaign is
looking costly McPherson
has collected $61,135 in cam-
paign contributions and Weekley
$81,618.
The race also has its share of
mud slinging.
At a forum last week hosted
by the Key West Chamber of
Commerce and Lodging
Association of the Florida Keys
and Key West, Weekley accused
McPherson, a 38-year-old real-
estate agent, of stealing his cam-
paign platform and mailing it out
as a brochure to Key Westers
"That's 100 percent bogus,"
McPherson responded to the
Fausto's grocery owner. "I
haven't changed my campaign
slogans and brochures since the
campaign began."
The two have sparred over
who has produced the most
available affordable housing and
laid the foundation for a more


affordable Key West in the
future.
McPherson noted Poinciana
and Roosevelt Gardens as prime
properties ready for affordable
housing both were purchased


497 more

McPherson said.
As far as long-term solutions
to the housing quandary, in the
past Weekley's noted Mount


Trashmore the solid-waste
station on College Road as a
potential spot for housing. He
recommends "a feasibility study
to see what could be done."
He said McPherson is in
favor of a proposed bus depot
planned to go up at that location,
but Weekley says "it could be
looked at for other locations."
McPherson said he supports
the intent of a referendum on the
ballot that would lease to the
Bahama Conch Community
Land Trust 6.6 acres at the
Truman Waterfront that would
be used to build 60 to 70 afford-
able units, trade schools and
shops.
He said issues with the way
.the organization has been man-
aged prompted him to vote no
the first time the question of
whether to put the referendum
on the ballot came before the
City Commission Sept. 5. He
voted yes shortly afterward.
"I think that the BCCLT has
some explaining to do about
their management style,"
McPherson said. "There is an
issue with being trusted with a
little before they're given a lot."
The other referendum on the


ballot asks if the city charter
should mandate that voters
approve any land annexation or
acquisition by the city.
On that, McPherson has the
same concern as his opponent: A
change in the charter could block
potential housing projects
because property owners willing
to sell to the city might not want
to wait the 45 to 60 days it would
take to organize a special elec-
tion to put the sale to the voters.
In an interview with the
Keynoter, Weekley was eager to
put a rumor to rest that implied
he would be in favor of chopping
a couple hours off closing time
for the island's bars. The current
closing time for many bars is 4
a.m. and Weekley says that's
fine with him, considering the
economic boost the businesses
give the city.
Weekley also wanted to clari-
fy a rumor that he would surren-
der access to Southard Street to
the Truman Annex Master
Property Owners Association,
saying "we can look at traffic
patterns.... I think there is proba-
bly a reasonable solution" to
establishing the best means of
egress and ingress, he said.

Key West workers


weigh livability


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


The results are in from a'hous-
ing survey compiled by a
Minnesotan college professor to
determine Key Wester's needs.
Karen Larson talked with
members of the Lodging
Association of the Florida Keys
and Key West, Key West
Chamber of Commerce and
island employees during two
days of workshops at the
Radisson Hotel in early June.
After that, she hit the streets of
Key West to interview workers
who couldn't make it to the hotel.
Subsequently, surveys were
mailed out -to businesses asking
for worker information, commu-
nity housing and humanly sus-
tainability development ques-
tions. She received more than
2,000 surveys back.
She will present the findings
of her survey Monday, 6:30 p.m.
at Old City Hall, 510 Greene St.,
during a presentation and a ques-
tion and answer session that


shouldn't last more than 45 min-
utes, according to City Housing
Coordinator Paul Clayton.
"My presentation needs to be
heard from the workers because
it's their voices coming'back
here," she said. "It is very impor-
tant for me to report these results."
According to Larson, Key
West workers are leaving
because they can't afford to stay
and they feel the island is losing
its unique character, and becom-
ing more of a "cookie cutter"
resort. The sentiment is employ-
ees would like to see more time
and energy spent on them, than
catering to tourists.
Larson is a professor of cultur-
al anthropology and interdiscipli-
nary studies at Gustavus Adolphus
College at St. Peter, Minn.
"There is a tremendous sense
of urgency to address the future
of the city," she said. "There is a
very high level of stress for work-
ers- people work too many jobs
for not enough money."


Skies may clear for tonight's fest


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Wet weather can be down-
right dangerous at times, which
is why officials decided
Thursday to cancel one of the
more prominent events of
Fantasy Fest.
"It was really a tough call,"
said Catherine Smiley, director
of sales and marketing for the
Pier House where the Pretenders
in Paradise costume extravagan-
za has been staged for the past
26 years."
"We put it off until the last
minute," she said. "We have to
have a minimum amount of time
to set up before the show, which
' takes about four hours."
"It was a weather safety
issue," said Ashley Hoover,
assistant director of Fantasy Fest.
"It's an outdoor metal stage."
"We had an awful lot of elec-
tricity, and a high tide coming
in," said Smiley. "With the
rough water and wind, that was
just too much water."
The Pier House is a water-
front luxury hotel in Key West.
The weather has been less
than ideal since the annual bac-


chanal kicked off a week ago
with the Goombay festival in
Bahama Village. But Hoover
says things are looking up.
"I just spoke with the weather
service," she said Friday, "and
they are predicting sunshine for
our parade."
Despite the rain or perhaps
because of it she says the
events have been particularly
well-attended.
"All of our parties and events
have had an amazing turnout,"
said Hoover. "This has been one
of our best Fantasy Fests."
Partygoers should see a
change in the weather, says sen-
ior forecaster Mike Rapsik at the
National Weather Service Key
West.
"The good news is there's a
pocket of air upstream," he said,
which should push out the front
that stalled across the Keys over


the past several days.
"Now that's not to say it's not
going to rain," Rapsik said, "but
not like it has been."
Scattered showers with an
intermittent thunderstorm, says
Rapsik, are all that's on tap for
Saturday's Fantasy Fest parade.
The 20 contestants for
Pretenders were disappointed in
the decision, according to
Hoover.
"They were very sad," she
said. "A lot of them do the
parade as well, so they still have
the opportunity to use their cos-
tumes."
Participants in Pretenders
usually go all out, investing
extravagantly of time and money
in costumes worthy of a Vegas
show. The event advertises
$10,000 in prizes.
Smiley said Pier House staff
was also disappointed because
the event is one of their big
money makers of the year.

Renovations in full swing


Marina capacity
expands to
92 boat slips
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbumie@keysreporter.com

The Village of Islamorada
recently began a $3.9 million
project that officials say will
turn Plantation Yacht Harbor
into "a world class marina."
The Plantation Yacht Harbor
renovation project officially
began on Monday, Oct. 15, but
a ceremonial groundbreaking
will be held on Tuesday, Oct.
30 at noon.
The marina master plan,
developed by the Boca Raton
firm, Coastal Engineering and
Planning, Inc., calls for reno-
vating all boat slips at the facil-
ity, as well as installing a new
water main, a fire protection
system, fuel tanks, lighting,
electric and telephone and
cable services.
The Broward County com-
pany, Shoreline Foundation,
Inc., has been hired to complete
the renovations.
Village officials expect the
project to be finished by next
summer.
Parks and Recreation
Department Director John
Sutter said once renovations are
complete, the marina will oper-
ate at its full capacity of 92
slips. Sutter said before con-
struction started it was operat-
ing at a capacity of about 70
slips because of general aging
and damage sustained during
Hurricane Wilma.
Director of Public Works
.and Utilities Myles Milander
said the marina will continue to
accommodate boats throughout
the renovation process.


Recent aerial photo shows the existing slips at Plantation Yacht
Harbor, which will soon undergo a $3.9 million renovation to
expand the number of slips and improve lighting, fire
protection and utility services for boaters.


"As we speak, they're tear-
ing [out] what we call the bulk-
head docks," he said. "We're
phasing this in so we can move
people around and still have
some income from the bigger
boats. We're moving [the boats
from the bulkhead docks] to the
long dock. After we get done
with the bulkhead docks, we'll
go to the long dock and move
those boats to the dock that's

Deputies watching for
Fantasy Fest DUls

Monroe County Sheriff's
Office deputies will be primarily
assigned to the Lower Keys
tonight, patrolling Fantasy Fest
traffic for impaired drivers.
Traffic-enforcement deputies
will be out in force between Key
West and Big Pine Key watch-


ing for drunk drivers as Fantasy
Fest crowds travel south to Key
West for the big parade. Later, as
the crowds head back north,
deputies will concentrate their
efforts in that direction.
With the assistance of
Florida's Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission and
the Florida Highway Patrol, one

finished."
Milander said that when ren-
ovations are, done, boats will
have access to new electrical,
phone and cable television
hookups.
He said a major feature of
the renovations is the construc-
tion of an 8-inch, 3,200-foot
long water main to replace a
smaller main that's .causing
water ,pressure problems
throughout the park.
"The new main will serve
the pool, the new restrooms, the
community center, and the fire
hydrants," he said.
According to Milander, the
renovations will ultimately
generate more revenue for the
village.
"We're getting about $14 per
foot per boat," he said of the
current marina docking fees. "I
believe it's going to be about a
$10 per foot increase, some-
where between $20 and $24.
But that's still to be deter-
mined."

Council cuts Puto's spending limits


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council,
meeting in regular session
Tuesday, took the following
actions:
Approved a resolution-
reduLing the 'pending threshold
for Cir Mlanager Mike Puto from
$25'.000 to $10,000. Any pur-
chase- abo\e that amount must
now be brought before Council.
"This is not an attempt to clip
the X\ tirgN of our city manager or
staff. His plate is full and it is the
responsibility of Council to take


the heat," Vasil said.
Vice Mayor Marilyn Tempest
was the lone dissenter, calling the
resolution "unnecessary."
Community Services Director
Susie Thomas said she felt the
resolution would badly "ham-
string" her department..
"In today's construction world,
you don't buy much for $5,000,"
she said. The original resolution
called for a $5,000 spending limit.
Awarded the rights to build
affordable housing on the city's
104th Street property to Old


Town Key West Development.
Council awarded the bid to
Old Town over the Biscayne
Housing Group, they said, main-
ly because they favored a project
developing home ownership ver-
sus rentals.
Old Town proposed two-bed-
room, 1.5-bath; two-bedroom,
two-bath, and three-bedroom,
two-bath homes ranging in price
from $206,000 to $289,000. They
will range in square footage from
940 to 1,275 and be deeded
affordable in perpetuity.

Village approves wastewater demo


By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.com

Residents; on Lower
Matecumbe Key could be next in
line for a village-run demonstra-
tion wastewater treatment system.
The system, designed by the
EPA for rural.areas with low pop-
ulation density, allows homeown-
ers to keep existing septic sys-
tems, and collect only liquids
from homeowner tanks. Liquids
would then be treated with 2010
compliance standards at small
local plants. .Homeowners are
still responsible for pumping out
the solids.
On Thursday, the Islamorada
Village Council voted 4-1 to
authorize $160,000 for the firm
E-Sciences to develop a work
plan and implement a demonstra-
tion project for a new decentral-
ized wastewater system. The U.S.
Environmental Protection
Agency will later reimburse the
village $120,000.
"The plant can be under-
ground," said Mayor Dave'
Boerer in an interview with The
Reporter. "It's like a small pack-
age plant. It can be under the road
somewhere and doesn't even
have to show. They just have a
few lids out there in the ground
that you can access it from."
Boemer said the treated water
is "very pure."
"You can actually take water
coming out of end product, chlo-
rinate it, and use it for reuse," he
said. "Every group of 12 homes
could have a reuse line."
The grant calls for the village
to spend a total of $5 million over
several phases, but 75 percent of
that money will be reimbursed by


the EPA. The village's final cost
for the 'entire project is estimated
at about $1 million.
Boemer said he supports the
grant, but voted against the work
order because he doesn't think E-
Sciences, which was also respon-
sible for'overseeing the treatment
system on Plantation Key, is the
right firm for the job.
"It's a good system and the 75
percent payment from the EPA to
do a demonstration project is
great," he said. "There's still the
control of it. We don't want a
paper study for a million dollars.
We want responsibility and
accountability."
The council unanimously
approved $90,000 for E-Sciences
continued assistance in managing
the wastewater treatment system
on Plantation Key.
Director of Public Works and
Utilities Myles Milander said he
needs the assistance and com-
pared the part-time project man-
ager and maintenance worker at
the Plantation Key Plant with the
15 full time employees at Key
Largo's plant.
"I can use whatever help I can
get here," said Milander.
In authorizing the money,
council also directed Milander to
start assembling his own staff and
reducing the amount spent on
consultants.
The council unanimously
approved a $40,000 payment to
E-Sciences for work already done
in negotiating wastewater treat-
ment options with the Key Largo
Wastewater Treatment District,
but council members said they
were displeased that E-Sciences


had completed the work without
prior authorization.
"Forty-thousand dollars on
this kind of a budget is a figure
that's worth staff mentioning to
the council," said Councilman
Michael Reckwerdt.
The council voted to postpone
authorization of an additional
$20,000 for negotiations until
Milander delivers a comprehen-
sive report on wastewater treat-
ment options at its Nov. 8 meet-
ing.
Finance Director Alice
Filinovich said the village has
spent about $202,000 on negotia-'
tions so far.


er to conduct a cost analysis and
feasibility study of expanding the
city marina.
Councilman Don Vasil origi-
nally proposed a 190-slip project
accommodating up to 60-foot
yachts, but the idea received a
cool response from council and
citizens. He said he would be in
favor of a slower approach
should it progress.
Mayor Chris Bull supported
the resolution, saying council
only wanted to proceed cautious-
ly with the plan.
"Nowhere in this resolution
does it assign a number of slips. It
gives the city manager [direction]
to go out and see what we can
do," Bull said.
Approved an ordinance
dealing with the city's five-year
capital improvement plan, pre-
pared annually by the city plan-
ning department.
Planning Director Fred Gross
outlined the plan, most of which
deals with wastewater and
stormwater improvements.
-* Approved a motion regard-
ing changes to the building per-
mit allocation system.
The proposed changes would
allow a lot owner who qualifies
for an allocation to waive it
should they not be ready to build
without losing their slot in the
rankings for the next round. The
allocation would then be awarded
to the next qualified applicant on
the list. )

The Planning Commission
has already devoted the better
part of two meetings to the ordi-
nance, tweaking the wording to
provide a better incentive for
property owners.
However, two commissioners
voted against the ordinance
when it came up for a third pass
at Wednesday's meeting.


'I wish we
could turn
back the
hands of
time and
say you
have to
use the
inclusionary
ordinance.'
- Donna Windle


In past versions, the ordi-
nance had owners donating
parks to the county in exchange
for the ability to transfer market
rate building allocations to
another site in the county. In the
newest version, the wording
changed to allow property own-
ers to sell those parcels.
Commission Chairman Jim
Cameron points out that the lan-
guage should be as all encom-
passing as possible, adding that
each case would be decided indi-


vidually.
Cameron, Donna Windle and
John Marston approved the pro-
posed ordinance.
Commissioners Sherry Popham
and Randy Wall voted against it.
Popham has been leery of the
ordinance as long as it allows the
transfer of building rights any-
where in the county. She says
she would like to see it limited to
county "sub areas" in order to
retain the character of individual
communities in the Keys.
The county is divided into
three areas: Lower, middle and
upper Keys.
In another move, the commis-
sion unanimously approved an
Upper Keys development,
Mandalay Bay RV Park, bypass-
ing an ordinance that would
require the developer to dedicate
30 percent of the 22-unit project
to affordable housing.
Windle said "the only thing
the county has right now to
ensure affordable housing is the
inclusionary ordinance."
However, the Mandalay proj-
ect was started long before the
rule took affect in May 2006.
"I wish we could turn back
the hands of time and say you
have to use the inclusionary
ordinance," Windle told repre-
sentatives of Ocean Sunrise
Associates, owners of the former
Mandalay Bay at mile marker
97.5.
In exchange for the consider-
ation, though, Ocean Sunrise
plans on donating half an acre of
the parcel to the county for use
as a park.
The proposed development
includes a 22-unit multi-family,
market-rate complex on the site,
three transient units, and com-
mercial space to include a fitness
area and swimming pools.

SNAKES ALIVE!: Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers Jimmy Johnson
(left) and Seth Wingard responded Sunday afternoon to Marine Bank on Summerland Key
to a report of this a 14-foot albino python. The owner, Gregory Scorza, 42, of Summerland
said it had escaped from its cage two days earlier. Scorza, who uses the snake to entertain
Duval Street tourists, was cited for two misdemeanors, allowing the escape of captive
wildlife and having an inadequate cage size for the reptile.



Library getting new roof


Public access
will remain,
but noisy
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Shushing might not be enough
to quiet things down in the next
several months as contractors
replace the roof on the Monroe
County Library in Key West.
"The building is from 1959,"
said Christine Dunn, the library
headquarters administrator. "This
is the first time anything exten-
sive has been done to it."
Starting in November, says
Dunn, library users can expect
some noise.
"It's a 10 veek project done in
four phases," she said. "The nois-
iest is at the beginning when they
remove to old roof."
The Monroe County
Commission in August approved
a contract with DeckTight
Roofing, Inc. for $386,000.
"Because we have drop ceil-
ings, we don't anticipate any
dust," said Dunn, "and they're
keeping the public entrances


open."
However, parking will be
more of an issue than it is now, as
one third of the small parking lot
behind the. library will be
reserved for the contractors. In
addition, there will be scaffolding
around the building during the


One third of the

lot behind the
library will be

project.
"We won't be closing, and
[the contractors] will be adjusting
to our schedule as necessary,"
said Dunn. "We anticipate there
might be times that are too noisy
for meetings or movies or our
regularly scheduled programs,
but we'll make those calls on a
daily basis."


Dunn said the work is timely,
since the building sprouts leaks in
every heavy rain.
The roof should be completed
in January.

Cruise line's profits up


Few hurricanes
-cited as one
of the reasons
Associated Press

Royal Caribbean Cruises
Ltd., the world's second-largest
cruise operator which makes
port calls in Key West, sailed to
a 14 percent increase in third-
quarter profit, beating Wall
Street expectations on higher
yields due to strong late book-
ings.
The Miami-based company
said bookings and pricing were
shaping up well for the first
quarter of 2008.
In the quarter ended Sept.'30,
the company earned $395 mil-
lion, or $1.84- per share, from
$345.4 million, or $1.63 per
share, a year ago. Analysts
polled by Thomson Financial
expected earnings of $1.77 per
share on average.
Quarterly revenue rose 19
percent to $1.95 billion from
$1.64 billion in the previous
year. Average estimates forecast
revenue of $1.79 billion.


Royal Caribbean's portfolio
includes 35 ships sailing under
the Royal Caribbean
International, Celebrity Cruises,
Azamara and Pullmantur brands.
The results, combined with
signs of future improvement in
bookings and pricing in the vital
Caribbean market, bode well for
the cruise industry especially
when framed against Carnival
Corp.'s strong fiscal third-quar-
ter results, analysts said.
The uptick in Caribbean
demand could be due at least in
part to a slower hurricane season
compared to 2004 and 2005,


though the Mexican port at
Costa Maya is currently out of
commission due to damage from
Hurricane Dean, said Adam
Goldstein, president of Royal
Caribbean International.
Royal Caribbean 2008 book-
ing levels and ticket prices were
up for the first quarter and full
year versus 2007. The company
expects that net yields for the
first quarter 2008 will increase
around mid-single digits com-
pared to the first quarter of 2007.
Yields are a key profitability
gauge that measure net income
earned from passengers per day
from cruise tickets and onboard
sales


TIB cuts costs


BANK / From 25

The higher provision for loan
losses and the impact of income
not recognized on nonperform-
ing loans compared to the prior
quarter reduced net income dur-
ing the third quarter by approxi-
mately $1.4 million, or 11 cents
per diluted share.
Partially offsetting this effect
was an after-tax gain of approxi-
mately $449,000, or 3 cents per
diluted share, from the planned
sale of an office building.
TIB Financial also reported
total assets of $1.40 billion as of
Sept. 30, representing 6 percent
growth from Dec. 31, 2006, and
11 percent growth from $1.26


billion as of Sept. 30, 2006.
"Economic activity in our
regional and local markets con-
tinues to slow as the much-soft-
er residential real-estate market
penetrates other facets of the
economy," Chief Executive
Officer Ed Lett said.
He said the company is
focusing on "cost containment,
disciplined loan origination and
continued active management of
our cost of funds. Our contain-
ment activities include the
reduction of leased office space,
the sale of an office building no
longer necessary for 'dur opera-
tions and rightsizing the organi-
zation for our anticipated near-
term level of growth."

Beef recalled


Miami Herald


Hialeah's Blue Ribbon Meats
is recalling 8,200 pounds of
frozen ground-beef products that
may be contaminated with poten-
tially deadly E. coli bacteria.
There have been no reports
of illnesses related to the ground
beef, the U.S. Department of
Agriculture said in a statement.
The ground beef was pro-
duced between Sept. 14 and
Sept. 27 and bound for a Florida
correctional institution and a
distributor in St. Thomas in the
U.S. Virgin Islands.
Creekstone Farms Premium
Beef of Arkansas City, Kan.,
which supplies Blue Ribbon,
inadvertently shipped the
ground beef after discovering
there may be a problem, the
department's statement said.
Creekstone "had product that
was held and they shipped it,"
said Ira Bregman, a Blue


Ribbon vice president. "I don't
know why it happened or how it
happened, but they have a lot of
explaining to do."
Creekstone is an affiliate of
Boca Raton private investment
firm Sun Capital Partners.
The recalled products are 10-
and 20-pound boxes of beef pat-
ties with the- brand names
Wespak B.R. and JNS Foods.
Blue Ribbon distributes to other
distributors, so it generally does-
n't know the.final destination for
its products, Bregman said.
He was certain none of the
meat was sold to Florida con-
sumers.
The government classified
the recall as a Class I, meaning
there is a'reasonable probability
that consuming the product will
cause "serious, adverse health
consequences or death."

Better the second time around

A Keys group challenges the community to step up recycling efforts
By MICHAEL WELBER -, '.- i f ,'-
Keynoter Contributor .


November is when Keys resi-
dents can learn their three Rs.
That's not reading, writingg and
'rithmetic but reduce, reuse and
recycle.
Nov. 15 is America Recycles
Day and local green organization
Green Living and Energy
Education (GLEE) has dedicated
the month to encouraging locals
to reduce wasteful purchases and
practices-, reuse materials when-
ever possible and recycle as the
last resort.
The group has also added a
fourth R for rot; GLEE encour-
ages soil production through
composting.
Unfortunately, recycling rates
have been low in the Keys.
According to Carol Cobb,
Monroe County's solid-waste
coordinator, the percentage of
those recycling is 6 percent coun-
tywide.
For Key West specifically,
from July 2006 to this past June,
the recycling rate was 6.7, accord-
ing to R.B. Havens, the city's
director of public works.
As a result, glass bottles,
newspapers, cans and certain
plastic containers have been
hauled to the mainland for incin-
eration.


A front-end loader moves paper, plastic and glass toward a
nationwide reduce stress on the environment.


If you think that doesn't mat-
ter, think again.
At a time when landfills are
filling up and leaking toxic chem-
icals into the ground water and
ocean, it's critical to limit the
amount of material dumped there.
Statistics provided by the U.S.

Ariana Patterson takes part In Cheeca Lodge's Earth Day
event this year. The Islamorada resort stresses environmental
responsibility during the daylong event.


Environmental Protection Agency
show, for example, that nine cubic
yards of landfill space is saved by
recycling one ton of cardboard.
Recycling also saves energy. It
takes only 5 percent of the energy
to recycle aluminum cans versus
mining and refining new alu-
minum. Recycling a ton of glass
keeps more than 700 pounds of
carbon dioxide from entering the
atmosphere, a critical factor at a
time when many experts say
greenhouse gases are warming
the planet.
So GLEE has laid down the
gauntlet. The group is challenging
each local area to dramatically
improve its recycling rate.
In November, the R4
Challenge will involve each local
area in competition for the best
Keyswide recycling rate. In addi-
tion, the group is staging R4 fairs
in Islamorada and Key West Nov.
17 to teach more ways to reduce,
reuse, recycle and compost (rot).
Some residents have com-
plained they can't get recycling
bins and that's why they don't
recycle.
However, in the Middle and
Upper Keys, the Florida Keys
Electric Cooperative has a good
supply of bins on hand that are

them. Residents should just stop
by either the Marathon or
Tavemier office to get one. Waste
Management also has plenty of
bins for people living in the
Lower Keys.
Others have complained that
items they throw into their bins
aren't actually recycled.
Waste Management District
Manager Greg Sullivan reported
at a recent Keys Sustain-ability
session that, in fact, the company
has constructed a sophisticated
recycling facility in Broward
County and recycles glass, cans,
newspaper and plastic bottles. In
the future, the facility will be able
to automatically separate trash
from recyclable material.
Sullivan reminded residents,
however, that the only plastic
containers that can be recycled
have the numbers 1 or 2 on the
bottom. Anything else will con-
taminate the load.
GLEE encourages everyone to
take the recycling pledge by'
going to the America Recycles
home page at www.nrc-recy
cle.org/americarecycles.as
px. For more information about
GLEE's recycling fairs, go to

This art is 'Wirth' it


.Party celebrates
the success of
Keys to Life
T o celebrate the success of
their Keys to Life Studio
of Art in Islamorada,
'which opened in July, marine-
life sculptor David Wirth and
painter Pasta Pantaleo the
International Game Fish
Association's inshore artist of
the year are hosting a beach


ra


party Nov. 3.
The Art on the Beach cele-
bration will be at the Island
Grill at mile marker 85.5 on
the restaurant's lower beach
section beginning at 6.p.m. The
evening will include food and
beverages, live music and a
huge collection of Wirth's
wood and distinctive bronze:
sculptures and Pantaleo's col-
orful art-in-motion marine
paintings.


"When we opened our doors
here, our intensions were to
really live our work in an envi-
ronment where we could create
our visions and a place where
the public and collectors could
view us at our endeavors,"
Wirth said.
"Our studio and workshop -
are just 100 yards from both
Florida Bay and the Atlantic
Ocean, where we fish, dive,
hunt and experience outdoor
adventures and then come back
and recreate our experiences."
Wirth has won numerous
awards and praise for his near-
and life-sized pieces, some
from a variety of rare and exot-
ic hardwoods found on four
continents. He is in the midst
of making sculptures using
local hurricane-dropped hard-
woods from dead trees and tim-
ber such as buttonwood,
mahogany and tamarind, which
has beautiful figuring and dis-
tinctive grain patterns. He has
also begun a limited-edition set
of bronze creations similar to
his wood sculptures.
When Wirth and Pantaleo's
vividly colored paintings rich'
with movement are showcased
with each other, it just adds to
depth to each work.
In addition to the works Art

David Wirth shows a northern pike not a fish found in waters
of the Florida Keys but in places such as Minnesota, where he
grew up. His childhood memories were the inspiration for this

than 200 teeth made from hickory. The blackbird to the left was
made of Costa Rican hardwood.

year working at the Keys stu-
dio.


He and Pantaleo are show-

Parrotheads flocking in


"Buffett fest
mostly centers
on the music
W hen Jimmy Buffett
wrote "I Have Found
Me a Home" about
Key West, he described riding
his old red bike to "the bars
and the beaches of my town."
Thursday through Nov. 4,
the island popularly credited
as the inspiration for his hit
party anthem "Margaritaville"
is to host as many as 3,500 of
the entertainer's Parrothead
fans for their 16th annual

SOCKS %SLIPPERS

ARE HERE!

PUBLIC CENTER MARATHON


Meeting of the Minds conven-
tion.
The convention is themed
"Barefootin' Key West," com-
memorating Buffett's rendi-
tion of "Barefootin"' on the
soundtrack to the 2006 film
"Hoot."
Scheduled events include
concerts'by Buffett's musical
cohorts and friends, beachside
parties and performances,
charity auctions and raffles, a
street festival with live music
and an all-day oceanfront
beach bash at the Casa Marina
Resort, 1500 Reynolds St.
Buffett, who peppers his
lyrics with references to Key
West locales, established his
Margaritaville Store in the
island's Lands End Village in
1985. It's now located beside
his Margaritaville CafE on
Key West's historic Duval
Street. He also maintains a
recording studio, Shrimp Boat
Sound, overlooking the former
shrimp docks.
While Buffett occasionally
makes a surprise visit to Key
West for the convention,


Parrothead audiences will
have plenty of opportunity to
enjoy the laidback musical
style he pioneered.
The lineup of performers
includes- regional and
Parrothead favorites Howard
Livingston and Mile Marker
24, Scott Kirby, Jim Morris &
the Big Bamboo Band,
Tropical Soul, the John Frinzi
Band and Buffett tribute
bands.
Most convention activities
are open only to registered
members of Parrothead clubs,
but the public is invited to
attend the Margaritaville
Street Fest sponsored by the
Paradise Charitable
Foundation planned for 1 to 6
p.m. Nov. 2 adjacent to
Margaritaville at Duval and
Fleming streets.
Street Fest entertainment is

Soul with Scott Bryan,

With the soccer season on the
line Tuesday, Island Christian.
School goalie Philip Izaguirre
refused to yield.
Izaguirre had 31 saves to pre-
serve a 2-1 Eagle victory over
St. Brendan in the District 8
Tournament, moving ICS into
Friday's title game against
Princeton Christian (results not
available at press time). .
Izaguirre, an ICS veteran
shifted into goal this year, "was
phenomenal," ICS coach Robert
Lucas said.
"He was everywhere. He
made five diving saves in the
final minutes alone. It was
arguably the best effort a keeper
has ever had during my coach-
ing career here."
Fifteen of those saves came
during the final 10 minutes
when St. Brendan mounted an
all-out offensive push in a bid to
tie the match.
"Our defense smothered
them," Lucas said. "Somebody
just found a way to make one
more play."
Aaron Izaguirre gave ICS the
early lead, getting a second

Forgettable v'ball season ends


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


A day after a memorable first
victory, the Key West High
School volleyball team saw its
season end Tuesday night with a
loss to Monsignor Pace in the
District 16-4A semifinals in
Miami.
Playing without senior setter
Danielle Hills, who had a choir
commitment, the Conchs lost, 25-
7, 25-3, 25-19.
"We built our offense and
defense around her," coach Jessy
Hulme said. "It was a tough deci-
sion for her [not to play], but she's
good at choir, too."
With eyes clearly focused on
the future, the Conchs did not
dwell on the loss. Wednesday,


they practiced against Horace
O'Bryant Middle School eighth-
graders.
"These girls are as excited for
the off-season to start as I am,"
said Hulme, a first-year coach
who instilled a volleyball educa-
tion that finally paid off Monday
when the Coichs defeated Ronald
Reagan in five sets in the first
round of the district tournament.
"Get used to it," she said to the
team on the bus ride home. "No
more losing mentality."
It was the Conchs' only victo-
ry of the season, though, because
of two forfeits, they officially fin-
ished 3-19.
"I knew this season would be a
tough one, but the girls came a


long way," Hulme said. "I was
happy with the progress they
made. Seeing [the victory] on the
scoreboard Monday was what
they needed. It was; wow, we
really can win."
The Conchs will have a corps
of experienced players next sea-
son, including Jacque Garcia,
Stephanie Garmany, Victoria
Brisson, Jessica Bodmer and
Jewel Woden, They will be joined
by promising players from this
season's JV team.
All will be involved in a stren-
uous off-season designed to make
them athletically better, said
Hulme, who next week will start
an after-school volleyball pro-
gram at H.O.B. "The eighth-
graders there are [already] very
athletic," she said.

of Ransom kill shots, but the
Raiders dominated at the net.
Chelsea Russell at one point
served a string of four aces for
.the Canes, but too many other
Coral Shores went awry.
"Our serving went in runs,
[Ransom's] serving was pretty
consistent throughout," Thiery
said. "That was a disparity and it
was a big difference in the
match;"
Coral Shores notched one
victory in the postseason, beat-
ing Carrollton in four games, 25-
15, 23-25, 25-18, 25-15,
Tuesday in the opening round.
"We played well except for.
taking a game-off," Thiery said
of the Carrollton match. "Maybe
the girls were looking ahead [to
Ransom] a little bit."
Senior Alex Barron turned in
/ one of her best matches, scoring
seven kill shots while moving
S well at the net, Thiery said.
"Ciara had a great game with
15 digs but that's routine for
her," he said.
A high spot of the Coral
Shores' 12-13 season was win-
ning the unofficial Monroe
r, County championship with wins
over Marathon High School and
Key West High School.
"We went 4-0 against our
county rivals," the coach said.
"Any time we can beat
Marathon is something because I
remember times we couldn't
even compete with them. So it's


good to be considered on top in
the county, for a year anyway."
Coral Shores also graduates
regulars Casey Bishop and
Nicole Pravata in addition to
Sanchez and Barron.
"Those four are a big part of
our team but now we have to
look to the future," Thiery said.


"Next year, we should have a lot
of very athletic seniors and.the
three sophomores who played a
lot for us this year.
"Right now, it looks like we
should be pretty good. But that
depends on how hard the girls
work during the offseason to get
better."

the pool in which earlier this
month he recorded his personal-
best 50 free time of 22.27 at an
elite invitational meet. "That's
why we went up there," said
Key West coach Lori Bosco,
adding that Knight will-go to
Orlando on Tuesday to ensure
being well-rested.
"He's got his work cut out for
him, but he's ready to do it,"
Bosco said.
At Thursday's regional meet,
Knight also anchored two Conch
relay teams Jake Brown,
Travis Stokes and Max Kohler
were the other members that
set school records in both the
200 freestyle (1:38.16) and the
400 freestyle (3:38.57).
Coral Shores coach Mark Hill
said several swimmers for the
Hurricanes set personal-best
marks amid the high-level com-
petition at the regional meet.
"We took 15 or 16 kids,
which is the most we've ever
qualified for regionals," Hill


said. "We swam fast, just not
fast enough to get to state."
Miller, a sophomore, stole the
spotlight for the Canes with her
fourth-place .finish off the
springboard, Hill said.
Because of limited competi-
tion during the regular season,
said the coach, "sometimes div-
.ing. gets overlooked. But
Meghan is the only one of our
kids going to state, so she gets
her chance to shine."
Coral Shores will graduate
several mainstays off the girls
swimming roster including
regional 'qualifiers Bianca
Sullivan, Leona Sola and Erin
Fry, and freestyler Cody Wagner
on the boys side.
Marathon coach Sarah
Maschal said her two seniors,
Matteo and Melanie Boyd,
"wanted to do better, but it was-
n't in the cards. They're going to
be hard to replace next year."

blocked his attempted header
off a cross. Izaguirre fielded the
rebound and made certain with a
strong kick.
St. Brendan tied the game
before halftime, taking advan-
tage of ICS' failure to clear a
ball out of their penalty area.
"We can't make these kinds of
mistakes at this time in the
year," Lucas said.
In the 50th minute, freshman
forward Jon Cruciger one-timed
a cross from Tom Cavanagh to
give ICS (9-4-1) the go-ahead
score. "It was a great effort on
both of their parts," said the
coach.
Both teams struggled with
the afternoon heat but did not
quit, Lucas said. "It was a fan-
tastic game."
The championship bout at
Princeton pitted the Eagles
against Princeton's Panthers,
their nemesis all season.
Princeton won all three regular-
season meetings against ICS.
"We will be looking for'
redemption after losing three
times," Lucas said earlier this
week. "We're working to see
what we need to do differently."
In fall soccer, only the dis-

Clint Arsenault.
Arsenault expected to wel-
come back virtually all his
'starters from last year's 11-5
campaign for the new season
that opens with a 4 p.m.
Monday home match against
Marathon High School.
"We're still very much in the
formative part of the season,"
Arsenault said. "The girls who
were playing volleyball haven't
come over yet, so we'll be look-
ing at a lot of different things
against Marathon."
The Canes also play an
Upper Keys game Friday,
against Dade Christian at the
Island Christian campus.
Senior forward Brooks
Burdick, the Canes' leading
scorer, will be back in the line-
up for her senior season along
with regulars including
Samantha Ragan, Andrea
Cockerham, Jennifer Tiziani
and Julia Hatfield. Defensively,
the Canes, expect to rely on
returning veterans including


Erin Fry and Shelby Gentes.
The Canes also. expect to
augment the roster with addi-
tional players from the Upper
Keys' Under-14 squad that won
the AYSO's age-group national
championship in summer 2006.
Other early-season high-
lights see Coral Shores travel to
Carrollton to open regular-sea-
son district play Nov. 6, and a
Nov. 14 face-off against county
rival Key West High School in
Key West.
Coral Shores split two pre-
season matches: beating
American High School, 2-1; but
'falling to Sunset, 3-1.
"We were leading Sunset, 1-
0, at the half and should have
been up by three," Arsenault
said. "Then we had a meltdown
for about five minutes in the
second half and gave up three
quick goals."
In the district semifinals last
winter, the Lady Canes were
halted in a 2-1 match that went
through 20 minutes of scoreless
overtimes and two shootouts
before Archbishop Carroll pre-
vailed. Only one senior graduat-

-Key West girls' soccer


returns with strong lineup


Season opens
'-with 2 matches
in N, Brbward
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

An eager, experienced Key
West High School girls' soc-
cer team begins its season
today with two games at
North Broward Prep in
Coconut Creek at noon
against Lake Mary Prep and
at 2 p.m. against Miami
i-Killian.
"This team loves to play,"
coach Scott Paul said of the
Conchs, who are coming off
an 18-10 season that.ended
with a loss to Cardinal
Gibbons in the regional quar-
terfinals.
Since that disappointing
January night, the Conchs
have prepared for this season
with weight-lifting and run-
ning sessions, Key West


Soccer Club competition and
a trip to Puerto Rico.
"We have a team that has
advanced dramatically skill-
wise," Paul said.
Perhaps the most talented
Conch is senior midfielder
Kara Haack, who had 15
goals and 16 assists last sea-
son. "She's on the verge of
showcasing some of the most
diverse individual skills we
have ever seen at Key West
High," Paul said. "Her game
is two notches above her best
last season."
Haack leads a strong con-
tingent of returning players,
including junior Kriz Menez,
a dependable scorer. "Her
speed and movement make
her extremely dangerous,"
Paul said. "The magic she
performs on the field with
Kara is like Siegfried and
Roy without the lions."
Among others back from
last year are sweeper Monica


Bertram, defenders Kaitlin
Hopkins and Cheryl Chavka,
midfielder Gigi Orofino and
stoppers Scarlett Williams.
and Ashley Stephenson.
With the graduation of
Hali Lombardi, the goalkeep-
er job has been inherited by
junior Liz Patrocky.
Younger players expected
to contribute include sopho-
more defenders Natalie
Dudley and Chloe DeVelasco,
and three freshmen who can
all shoot Morgan Saunders,
Jennifer Barcenas and
Jasmine Jones.
Paul, in his .eighth season
as coach, expects his team to
wear down opponents.
"Anyone wanting to start on
the varsity needs to run a
seven-minute mile," he said.
Eight players have already
done it and four are within 11
seconds.
"The bar is raised for this
team, and it will exceed all
expectations," Paul said.


Mini-Olympics

planned for racers


Islander hosts
world catamaran
championships
Two-time A-Cat world
champion Peter Melvin is
among 100 world-class interna-
tional competitors and Olympic
sailors coming to Islamorada for
world championship races.
The 2007 Ronstan A-Class
Catamaran World Champion-
ships will run Nov. 8-16 and rac-
ers will be headquartered at
Islamorada's Islander Resort,
mile marker 82.1 oceanside.
Races are scheduled Monday
through Friday, Nov. 12-16, with
equipment inspection and trial
races starting Friday, Nov. 9.
Two previous A-Class cata-
maran races were held in
January 2007, and a third annual
event is set for January 2008.
However, event officials said
they chose November in
Islamorada for the world cham-
pionship for the perfect weather
conditions.
In addition to daily races,
opening and closing ceremonies
at the Islander will be open to
the public.
"It's going to be like a mini-
Olympics with a village," said
event co-organizer John
Schiefer.
Each country's race partici-
pants are expected to share in the
festivities with something from
their homeland.
Australian Glenn Ashby
plans to defend his 2006 cham-
pionship title. He is a multiple
world champion in the class and
is regarded as a favorite to medal
in the 2008 Tornado Olympic
event in Qingdao, China.
Other top international sailors
set to race in Islamorada include
past world champions Scott
Anderson and Nils Bunkenberg,
Olympic medalists Andrew
Landenberger and Goran

pion Murray Philpott, Dutch
competitors Sjoerd Hoekstra,

Dolphins win
3 before falling
to Palmer power
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
girls' volleyball season came to a
close with district tournament loss
to Palmer Trinity School
Thursday.
The Dolphins defeated
Westwood Christian Tuesday to
reach the semifinals, but lost in
three straight games to the num-
ber one seed Falcons.
Coach Kevin Freeman said is
was a season-filled with ups and
downs, but he was proud of the
way the girls stuck together. He


Keynoter


said the loss of seniors Alexis
Culver, Jessica'Brier, Yari Alpizar
and Mandy Ibsen will be tough to
overcome for next year's squad.
"We're losing some hitting
power and some great defense.
It's going to be tough filling those
shoes, but if they work hard they
can do it," Freeman said.
Marathon started slowly
against Westwood, dropping the
first game 12-25.
"The first game it looked like
we were ready to hand it in.
Nobody was moving and we
missed four serves, but after that
the team showed up," he said.
The Dolphins won the next
three games in convincing fashion
to take the match, 25-22, 25-11,
26-16.
Freeman said the team let a
substantial lead slip in the second
game, but the team kept its com-
posure and closed it out.
"They made a run but we kept
control. We got more aggressive
on offense and didn't miss any
serves," he said.
Freeman said the Dolphins
communicated very well and
dominated the third and fourth
games in the match.
"We played like I thought we
could all year, but definitely the
way we've played in the last cou-
ple" matches, he said.
Junior Sarah Melia served five
aces in the match, while Culver
had nine kills and two aces and
Brier had 10 kills and two blocks.
In Thursday's match, the
Dolphins again started slow and
were unable to recover against a
strong Palmer team. They lost 5-
25, 20-25, 10-25.
The Falcons have several girls
over 6 feet tall, including a 6-foot-
2-inch eighth-grader who domi-
nated the Dolphins on serve.
"The second game was unbe-
lievable. People were diving on
the floor and trying to get the ball
back over the net. For the better
part of the game it was back and
forth," Freeman said.
"Unfortunately, they finished it
out. They just had too many
weapons."
Sophomore Shelby Kuck had
three kills and a block in the
match. Culver had three kills and
;two blocks and Brier had four
blocks.

Hegland falls in golf region Keys briefs


Marathon clubber
shoots an 80 in
Coral Gables
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon High School senior
golfer Jay Hegland failed to
advance past his regional tourna-
ment Monday after he shot an 80
at Riviera Country Club in Coral
Gables.
Hegland advanced to the tour-
nament on an individual basis at
the Dolphins' district match Oct.
16 at International Links Miami-
Melreese Golf Course. The team
missed the chance to play Monday
by only six strokes.
Dolphins coach Dean Carrigan
said Hegland was grinding from
the first hole on to make pars on
the narrow course.
"The problem was there were
fairway bunkers 280 [yards] out
on the left hand side and he found
almost every one. I'm guessing


about six bunkers he hit into,"
Carrigan said.
Carrigan said Hegland told
him trying to sink five or 10-foot
par putts all day finally caught up
with him.
"It was just a struggle for him
all day, I don't know why.
Everyone else in his group was
playing bad, it was real hard to

'He has all
the talent in
the world,
he just has
to do it.'
Coach Dean Carrigan

stay focused," Carrigan said,
adding slow play forced Hegland
to wait on several holes down the
stretch.


Hegland started play on the
back nine and Carrigan said he
parred the first three holes before
hooking a 4-iron left on a short
par-4 and making his first bogey.
He was one-over par through six
holes but bogeyed the last three
holes to shoot 40 on the back nine.
Carrigan said Hegland was
frustrated all day by the speed of
the greens at Melreese.
"He was trying to run it to the
hole instead of throwing it up in
the air and getting loft on it,"
Carrigan said.
Hegland made his lone birdie
in the round on number 8.
Carrigan said he drove right off
the tee behind a tree before hitting
a sand wedge over the top of it
within six feet and sinking the
putt.
Carrigan said Hegland is look-
ing into schools where he can play
next year, and should have several
lined up by March.
"He has all the talent in the
world, he just has to do it. He'll
learn that, it just takes time," he
said.


Soccer team hopes

The under-14 girls' soccer
team from the Middle Keys
