Waterfru,. pian sinks

Some last-minute additions
last month to an ordinance
aimed at preserving Monroe
County's working waterfront
might have sunk the whole idea,
or at least slowed it substantially.

Tropical storm

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Many in the Keys were on
low-level alert earlier in the week
watching what would become
Tropical Storm Noel, but it looks
like the islands will remain out-
side the projected path of the
weather system.
The 14th named storm of the
2007 hurricane season ravaged
the Dominican Republic before
weakening while suspended over
Cuba Tuesday. Various media
outlets reported as many as 25
deaths Monday in the Dominican
Republic.
Matt Strahan, meteorologist
in charge at the National Weather
Service in Key West, said the
biggest problem the Keys will
likely face is whether to have
called off school today or not.
"They can't get the buses over
the bridges if winds are gusting
past 35 mph. We're going to be
close to that," he said. "We're

U.S. 1 into and out of the Keys
was closed most of the late morn-
ing and afternoon Tuesday fol-
lowing a head-on crash at mile
marker 124 on the 18-Mile
Stretch.
One of the drivers, Christopher
Hocker, 27, of Florida City suf-
fered life-threatening injuries. His
condition at press time could not
be confirmed.
The crash followed a weekend
of Keys accidents, including one
in which a moped rider was killed
in the Lower Keys.
The Florida Highway Patrol
said James Melzi, 50, of
Broomhill, Pa., was riding the
moped north at mile marker 7 at
noon Sunday when it was struck
from behind by Tara Thomas, 24,
of Kissimmee, driving a 1994
Buick. Both vehicles caught fire.
It was the 17th auto fatality
south of Florida City this year.
Alcohol was not a factor, troopers
said.
Earlier that day, at 8 a.m. at
mile marker 28, James Maruna,
64, of Key West was riding a
bicycle north when he was struck
by a 2000 Dodge driven by
Trevor Swanson, 19, of Fort
Pierce, troopers said.
They said Swanson fled but
was stopped by the Monroe

This is all that's left of the moped involved in Sunday's fat
crash. A Pennsylvania man riding it died.


County Sheriff's Office about 15
minutes later at the north end of
the Seven Mile Bridge. He was
charged with driving under the
influence after he reportedly blew
a .19 on a blood alcohol test. The
legally drunk limit in Florida
is .08.
In Tuesday's Stretch crash,
Hocker was driving a white Ford
sport utility vehicle south and
Ivan Puentes, 30, of Homestead
was driving a red dump truck
filled with gravel north. For
unknown reasons, Hocker drifted
into the southbound lane, hitting


the dump truck head-on, FHP Lt.
Pat Santangelo said.
Traffic was rerouted to Card
Sound Road.
In other traffic incidents the
past several days:
At 1:45 p.m. Saturday, a
motorcycle collided with a truck
at mile marker 31 on Big Pine
Key. Two people were transport-
ed to Lower Keys Medical
Center.
At 8:24 p.m. Sunday, two,
vehicles at mile marker 93.6 col-
lided. One vehicle reportedly
flipped several times.


Memo carries 'considerable weight'


PLANNING / From 1

The memo also says the ordi-
nance doesn't make clear how
maritime uses would be pre-
served if new residential and pub-
lic lodging establishments are
allowed on the waterfront.
Plans for a large chunk of
Stock Island include residential
units as well as a hotel. David
Paul Horan, an attorney for the
Safe Harbor landowners includ-
ing Charlie Renier, convinced the
County Commission to include
an addendum to tie ordinance at
the last minute at the Sept. 19
commission meeting. The adden-
dum would allow for a hotel
Where zoning now precludes it.
The proposal didn't go over
well with a number of people at
the meeting, including Monroe
County Planning Commissioner
Sherry Popham and County
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy.


"Since when do landowners,
developers and their attorneys
write up things to go to the
DCA?" Murphy asked. "Why
does this not have to go to the
Planning Commission?"
Horan pointed out that the
plans for the waterfront include
commercial fishing.
Despite concerns, the com-
mission approved the add-on
allowing the hotel to meet a DCA
deadline.
DCA spokesman Jon Peck
says the Regional Planning
Council's objection to the water-
front ordinance will be heeded.
"It carries a considerable
weight," Peck said Tuesday. "It's
not the final determining factor,
but as an agency we support the
idea of a regional perspective on
things."
"We're going to work on hav-
ing some very specific language
that we would suggest' they
include [in the ordinance]," said


Carolyn Dekle, executive direc-
tor of the Regional Planning
Council.
"This is the time we can artic-
ulate what our concerns are," she
said. "Monroe County is in a sit-
uation that many or most coun-
ties are in, which is that we're
having competing interests com-
peting for use of the waterfront."
The council also objects to the
ordinance because it contains
"vague language" and because it
has no clear means of implemen-
tation.
Monroe County has been
working for years to come up
with a way to protect the working
waterfront so luxury residences
don't replace traditional commer-
cial uses that support the fast-dis-
appearing fishing industry.
If DCA does not approve the
ordinance, the agency will send it
back to the County Commission
for further work.

Flames burn home, school


Marathon fires
follow on heels
of other blazes
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The recent rash of Keys fires
continued this weekend in
.Marathon as a fire broke out at
Marathon High School Sunday
and a residential home on 46th
Street caught fire early Monday
morning.
Fire Chief Dale Beaver said
the outbreak is unexplainable, but
a positive is no one has been
harmed in any of the recent inci-
dents.
"So far no firefighters or occu-
pants have been hurt," he said.
The fire Monday morning was
at the single-story home of
Jennifer Miller. She and son
Jordan were the only two occu-
pants at the time of the fire.
Beaver said Jordan awoke at
5:30 a.m. to shower and began to
smell smoke while in the bath-
room. He stepped out and woke
up his mother, he said, and both
escaped the home safely. A neigh-
bor called the incident in.
"It was an outlet on one of the
walls inside the bedroom; it
shorted out and caught fire,"
Beaver said. He said the outlet
spread to the mattress and subse-
quently lit the entire room up in
flames.
Beaver said the fire was con-
tained to the area of origin, but
that the home was totaled.
"The roof is gone and the rest
of the house has extensive heat
and smoke damage," he said.
The fire at the high school on
Sombrero Beach Road broke out
around 12:30 p.m. Sunday,
Beaver said, and was confined to
the area it originated in.
Beaver said the fire began in a
temporary office for Pedro
Falcone, the electrical contractor
for the ongoing construction at
the school. Workers on site
smelled smoke and called it in to
authorities.
Beaver said fire marshals are
investigating the blaze and its
cause remains undetermined.
"They take samples to rule out
any hazardous material being
used to start it. Right pow it does-
n't appear to be sufficient; we
don't thing it was arson," he said..
These incidents came on the
heels of a fire Oct. 19 at the


Marathon Tire Center behind
L&L Storage at 2188 Overseas
Highway. Beaver said the fire
began at roughly 6:45 p.m. and
blocked traffic for roughly two
hours because the hose had to be
laid across the highway.
"Most of the hydrants in that
area are on the oceanside," he
said.
Beaver said the cause of the
fire is still under investigation
and that "we haven't ruled any-
thing out yet." He said the build-
ing is totaled and will have to be
demolished.

Navy gets voice in planning

ment or redevelopment close to
the air station.
+ Advise the county to take
into consideration any comments
or recommendations for compati-
bility between the Navy and the
county.
In September, Growth Manage-
ment Director Andrew Trivette
urged the County Commission not
to adopt a newly revised Air
Installation Compatible Use Zones
report released by the Navy in
April. Trivette said the document
could open the door for lawsuits
from landowners who.feel it limits
the use of their land, for example,
not being able to sell their homes
because of the known jet noise.
The AICUZ document is a
planning tool, Navy spokesman
Jim Brooks said.
Initially crafted in 1977 and
adopted by the county, it outlines
areas near the training facility


where noise levels and, in some
cases, danger levels are high
because of the flight paths. The
county Planning Department uses
the 1977 version when reviewing
development in the area.
The DRC proposal would
amend the county's comprehen-
sive plan so that the Navy would
be notified about development or
redevelopment "affecting densi-
ty, intensity or use of land" with-
in the contour of the AICUZ.
To find the specific noise con-
tours, go to www.naskw.navy
.mil and click on "AICUZ."
The relationship between
some community members and
the Navy has become acrimo-
nious lately. Some nearby resi--
dents complain about jet noise
and accuse Navy officials of re-
routing planes over lower-
income neighborhoods.
Last week, Petty Officer
Second Class Donald Cooper
fired an e-mail to www.stopthe
planes.com, a Web site com-


piled by Tamarac Park resident
Paul Caruso.
"I am so sick of hearing peo-
ple whine and cry about jet
noise," Cooper wrote. "The Navy
has been present in Key West
since 1823, the first logged flight
out of Key West was logged on
Sep 22, 1917 (90 yrs ago). Dec
18, 1917 the base was officially
declared a Naval Air Station."
He wrote that most people liv-
ing near the base knew exactly
what they were getting into when
the bought their property.
."I say everyone just shut up
and accept it or move, no one
forced you to move here, and if
your born here no one forces you
to stay..."
"Well, he was not supposed to
write that using government e-
mail," NAS Key West spokes-
woman Trice Denny said. "He is
being disciplined for it and his
opinions do not represent that of
NAS Key West or of the U.S.
Navy."

Building freeze


proposed for Big Pine


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


It's been next to impossible to
build a new home on Big Pine and
No Name keys in recent years.
Now landowners may be looking
at a short-term moratorium on
building permit allocations.
The county's Development
Review Committee is reviewing
a proposal to put on hold any
new permits for six months to
allow staff time to come up with
a policy for mitigation in
exchange for building.
The DRC, made up of county
staff and representatives from
the Fire Marshal's Office and
state Department of Trans-
portation, meets at 1 p.m. Nov. 6
at the Marathon Government
Center.
The moratorium, also called
an interim development ordi-'
nance, would set a fixed policy
for mitigation and a method to
be sure it's met.
"We have to put [the morato-
rium] in place until we can get
this done," County Commis-
sioner George Neugent said.
This would not be the first
freeze on development on the
two Lower Keys islands. They
were under an extended morato-
rium while state and federal
agencies crafted a Habitat
Conservation Plan..
In March 2003, the county
approved that HCP for Big Pine
and No Name. The plan limits
the number of building permits


allotted on the islands over the.
next 20 years as a means of con-
serving endangered species,
especially the key deer.
Under the plan, the state
allots eight market-rate and two
affordable housing permits for
Big Pine and No Name Key
annually.
"We already have an equiva-
lent system in place in other
areas," Neugerit said.
He said that over the years,
landowners have worked with
the county individually on miti-
gation. In some cases, the coun-
ty has actually put up the land
required for mitigation in the
HCP.
According to the moratorium
proposal, "there is no longer sur-
plus real property constituting
habitat for threatened and
endangered species owned by
Monroe County" to provide mit-
igation.
Until now, the proposal says,
the property owned by the coun-
ty "has been sufficient to com-
pensate for the permitted devel-
opment" on the two islands.
Under the proposal, the
moratorium would be in effect
for six months or until an ordi-
nance is approved.
If approved by the DRC, the
freeze would go before the coun-
ty Planning Commission and
eventually the County Com-
mission before it is implemented.

being on the weak side of" the
storm.
Residents with waterfront
property can expect 6 inches to a
foot above normal tide as a result
of the storm, Strahan said. He
said there is also a gale-force-
winds (35 knots and above)
warning in place for boaters.
The U.S. Coast Guard has
issued a small-craft advisory in
place through Thursday, saying
in a prepared statement that gale-
force winds and seas up to 19 feet
can be expected in the wake of
the storm.
Meanwhile, the storm has


caused several cruise ships to be
diverted to and from Key West.
The Majesty of the Seas was
sent to Key West Tuesday and
will not port there Thursday as
scheduled, Key West communi-
cation manager Christie Phillips
said. She also reported the ship
Celebration will move to the
Outer Mole today due to wind
factors and the Sovereign of the
Seas will dock at Pier B today
from 7:30 a.m. until 6 p.m.
'Strahan said Noel is a
reminder hurricane season cannot
be proclaimed over until a strong
cold front sweeps south of Cuba,
bringing cold air. It has not hap-
pened yet, he said, "but we're
close."


Coral damage assessed


Keynoter Staff

Underwater survey work con-
tinues to assess possible damage
after a 430-foot cargo ship
reportedly dropped anchor ille-
gally in the Tortugas Ecological
Reserve.
"This ship happened to
anchor in one of the-most highly
protected areas in the National
Marine Sanctuary Program,"
said Joe Cafiero, a spokesman
for the federal program.
U.S. Coast Guard and Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission law enforcement
documented the alleged viola-
tion in the no-anchoring zone
approved under the National
Marine Sanctuaries Act.
Fines against the owners of
the refrigerated cargo ship Green
Chile, homeported in the
Bahamas, could be levied based
on damage to corals and other
protected organisms on the sea
bottom.
"It's pretty deep, up to around
100 feet," Cafiero said. "We have

Tax relief brings

out goblins, boos

Given the typical pranks often associated with Halloween, we
might be tempted to see more tricks than treats in the Florida's
Legislature's compromise.property tax relief plan.
Despite some boos heard from the lower chamber, the Florida
Senate's version which was endorsed by Gov. Charlie Crist
- won the day.
Some estimate it could deliver upward of $12 billion in tax
relief over the next five years.
But that wasn't good enough for House Speaker Marco Rubio,
who turned somersaults over the weekend trying to figure out a
way to out maneuver the Senate. He couldn't.
Monday, when the governor held a photo op with legislative
leaders, Rubio was conspicuously absent, along with any other
House leader.
The House speaker described the Senate's more modest tax
relief plan as "unfortunate" and sent signals he may push for a
citizen-led referendum to send a stronger signal to Tallahassee
pols.
Here's what the Senate-authored plan does:
Doubles the $25,000 homestead exemption.
Adds portability for the Save Our Homes constitutional
amendment capping annual assessments at 3 percent (with a
$500,000 cap).
Helps small business with a $25,000 exemption on tangible
personal'property.
+ Gives second-home and commercial property owners an
assessment cap at 10 percent (vs. the more generous 3 percent
cap on homestead property under Save Our Homes).
And here's what got dumped: extra tax relief for first-time
homebuyers, owners of waterfront commercial property, and
low-income seniors.
With Rubio threatening to take the issue directly to voters, it's
unclear what strategy the Legislature adopts now in trying to
secure the 60 percent favorable vote needed to amend the state
constitution.
Also, this ballot initiative is slated for the Jan. 29 presidential
primary ballot. Voter turnout is uncertain, given that Florida
Democrats are being punished by their national party, which
stripped Florida of its delegates as punishment for moving the
primary ahead of New Hampshire and Iowa.
That makes the Jan. 29 primary a beauty contest, not a true
presidential preference primary.
The national Republican Party issued sanctions as well, but
only nicked Florida GOP leaders with half their delegates at risk,
not all.
The fate of this watered-down tax relief now rests squarely on
the shoulders of the Republican lawmakers who brokered the
deal.
Given their track record so far this year, we won't hold our
breath waiting for a positive outcome come January.

Commissioners silence the residents' voices


EDITOR:
I am a regular at the County Commission meet-
ings the past year and half. I am there from begin-
ning until the end and if there is an issue I oppose
or support, I speak. So I go up to the podium regu-
larly.
Recently, events have happened I find over the
top and blatant. It is the treatment of our speakers
who oppose any decisions for development.
When the public speaks at these meetings, it
shares deeper thoughts on most issues and explains
what impact the agenda item would have in our
communities. Intelligent issues are brought up,
which are omitted when developers'make their pre-
sentations. These speakers open up the other side
and bring balance. However, because developers
have the majority 3-2 votes on both the County
Commission and Planning Commission, it does not
matter what is said, as it will not change the minds
of those three votes.
It goes even further. I witnessed Planning
Commissioner Donna Windle and County
Commissioner Dixie Spehar (both are members of
the Workforce Housing Task Force), after confus-
ing discussions, ask staff how to word a motion to
pass an ordinance. In other words, they did not
understand the subject matter enough to word the


motion themselves, so they ask staff to word the
motion for them. This astonishes me as I sit in the
audience, because instead of tabling the item for
further research to answer unanswered questions-
and understand all elements of the ordinance, they
force the vote for approval at that meeting.
If you listen to county housing consultant Jerry
Coleman, he goes on talking about things unrelated
to the topic (I remind you, the county pays him
$350 an hour of our tax dollars). He is never inter-
rupted. And he is not staff. He is an outside con-
tractor.
However, lately the speakers are being distract-
ed and ridiculed. While speaking, they are inter-
rupted in the middle of their sentences, hurried, told
they are not germane (they are) and completely
intimidated. It is a tactic used to embarrass speakers
to make them shy away. I have been treated like
this several times by Mayor Mario Di Gennaro,
Planning Commission Chairman Jim Cameron and
Planning Commissioner John Marston.
I want these boards to respect my right as a citi-
zen and for all citizens who take time to attend
these meetings who also want to speak. I want to
hear what they have to say.

Photographer Groffman framed life sweetly


EDITOR:
Marty Groffman will always be remembered as
a Florida Keys resident who made a difference in
the lives of many.
After retiring here in the late 1970s, after work-
ing as a teacher and principal in the New York
City school system, Marty immediately became
involved with his community.
Through the years I, along with many other
people, enjoyed working with Marty in his goals
to enhance the Florida Keys' arts community. We
first met through the Florida Keys Art League in
the early 1990s and then became better acquainted
through the Florida Keys Council of the Arts. I
feel honored to have been on the Arts Council
Advisory Board with him and to have worked
with him on the Florida Keys Marathon Airport's
ArtPort project. Equally enjoyable were experi-
ences through the Florida Keys Art Guild's indoor
and outdoor art shows.
As his unique photographs will attest, he was a
photographer with a true artist's eye. His passion
for photography encouraged him to not only shoot,

Deputy needs math lesson
EDITOR:
If my Canadian driver's license states my
height is 168 centimeters, why would a Monroe
County deputy state that my height is 6 feet on my
speeding ticket?
If you asked any fifth-grader, he or she would
say that 5 feet, 6 inches should have been written
on the ticket. He made no effort to include the
information provided on the other side of my
license (expiration date, etc.). Maybe it's time he
went back to school. Oh, and I will spend $4,000
somewhere else next year.

print and sell great photographs, but also to share
his knowledge through teaching at Florida Keys
Community College. Marty's photography students
proudly claim that he is one of the reasons they
have maintained their passion for photography.
Although only a month's time has passed since
Marty's death, many have mentioned to me how
much they will miss him. I am confident that all
who knew Marty have many fond (and humorous)
recollections of times they spent with this intelli-
gent and generous individual. Marathon, the.
Florida Keys and our arts community are all much
better places because Martin Groffman chose to
make his home here.
A memorial "Celebration of a Creative Life"
for Marty will be held at the Marathon
Community Theatre Sunday from 4 to 6 p.m.

Spend your money with your Keys neighbors


EDITOR:
You've heard it. We all have.
The Keys just aren't what they used to be.
We're starting to look like every place else,
starting to lose our charm. We're being overrun
by outsiders. Yeah, well, whose fault is that?
Do you drive to the mainland to save a few
bucks on your oil change when you've got
three Key Largo Chamber of Commerce mem-
bers you could patronize?
SDo you go online to buy your books when
one of our chamber members is a full-service
bookstore right here in Key Largo?
Do you leave the area to get your insurance,
cut flowers, clothing, jewelry or any of a multi-
tude of products when local businesses fel-
low chamber members are struggling to stay
alive?
I know things are tough all over. Who
doesn't want to save a few bucks?
But when you don't support your local busi-
ness community, you are helping create the
very thing you're complaining about: Loss of
local character and charm. Big-box companies
taking over. Condos pushing out marinas and
small hotels and displacing fishing guides.
It's all connected.
When you go elsewhere to purchase your
goods and services, you are making it more


difficult for local merchants to pay their bills.
If they can't pay their bills, they will either
close or sell to someone with deeper pockets.
And who has the deep pockets these days?
Who can afford to pay these property prices?
Who can afford to pay the taxes that keep spi-
raling out of sight? The same companies you
are now complaining about ruining the flavor
of the Keys.
Sure, you may be able to get some things
cheaper on the mainland. But when you factor
in travel time and the cost of fuel, are you real-
ly saving as much as you thought?
That sweet online deal starts to sour once
you figure in the cost of shipping and the time
delay in getting your purchase. And then if you
don't like it, you have to spend more time and
money to return it.
How much easier, cheaper and worthwhile it
is to spend your money locally with people you
know people who pay taxes here, send their
kids to school here, worship here? Businesses
employ more than 4,000 people in the Key
Largo area alone.
If you want the Keys to remain the charm-
ing, unique, mom-and-pop place you love, do
your part. Shop local.
Jackie Harder, president
Key Largo Chamber of Commerce


Keys kindness saves vacation


EDITOR:
Last week my husband Joe, another couple
and I were on vacation in the Keys. We were
on our way home to north Alabama and
stopped at the McDonald's in Tavemier for
lunch.
The problem was when we left, I forgot my
purse, which was hanging on the back of my
chair. Unfortunately I didn't miss it until we
got to Palm Beach, which was several hours
later because we got caught in very heavy rain
and were traveling on motorcycles.
Of course, then I realized what I had done. I
panicked because my purse contained my
Social Security card, driver's license, insurance
cards, checkbook and, most importantly, my
medications; because of health problems and
an injury, I have to take narcotics for pain man-
agement on a daily basis. This was the only
way I could make this trip:
My husband and I had started thinking of
where I could catch a plane to fly home when
he remembered that he had the lunch receipt
that had the phone number to the McDonald's,
so we stopped and called them. To my amaze-
ment, the young man who answered the phone
said, "Yes, your purse is here. Someone turned
it in." It seems a local man who was there eat-
ing with his wife and child found the purse and
turned it in.
I asked the young man on the phone to look
inside and he looked to see that everything was
still there. I asked them to put it up until I
could get back the next day. The next day
when we got there, they remembered us and
got my purse for me and, sure enough, every-
thing was there.
These kind and honest people saved my
vacation and prevented much pain for me. My


husband and I wanted to acknowledge these
fine people and tell your community that it
should be very proud of them. I don't think this
result would have happened in many places.
We were able to get home safely after hav-
ing to cut the vacation short because of heavy
rains. Maybe we'll get a chance to come back
some day to your beautiful comer of the world.

Make the commission
accountable on sewers

EDITOR:
It's time for every homeowner in unincorpo-
rated Monroe County to start talking to their
commissioner.
There is a 2010 deadline for wastewater
treatment upgrades throughout the Keys. There"
is a strong possibility that if the county does
not provide adequate sewer upgrades through-
out the county, the state will force individual
homeowners to upgrade their home systems
until a sewer is ready to hook into. That means'
you must pay for your upgrade and then pay to
hook into the sewer when it is ready. It is going
to cost each homeowner a lot.
Start leaning on your commissioners to find
out what is in the works and how they expect
to accomplish the state mandate. It seems pos-
sible that we need to dump the whole County
Commission and get some people in there who
care about their constituents. Call your com-
missioner. You can't afford not to.

"If people-want the right the
right kind of place to live, they
need to make it themselves," she
added. "It's not just the responsi-
bility of the government."
Among the preliminary find-
ings: 55 percent of respondents
who rent aspire to own, 75 per-
cent name "upscale develop-
ment" as the No. 1 threat to the
community and almost 60 per-
cent say good weather is the
biggest draw to the island.
Environment, culture and
social diversity were also attrac-
tive, while employment and fam-
ily scored significantly higher in
keeping workers here than
attracting them.
Salary was rated the most
important quality-of-life issue,
with health care, housing and city
cleanliness following close behind.
Transportation, day care and
promotions ranked as the lowest
factors contributing to quality of

City Commissioner Bill Verge
spoke after Larson's presentation,
stating that surveys will only tell
residents what they already know
- there isn't enough affordable
housing. The survey results, he
said, would be interchangeable
with any completed in tourist-
based towns across the country.
Larson mailed out 18,632 sur-
veys to employers and received
2,200 back, which she calls a
decent return. Her services will
end up costing more than
$18,000; a third of that she will
pay out of her own pocket,

Key West's division of class is
spreading wider and residents
feel their perception of cultural
value is in jeopardy, a
Minnesotan professor deduced
from preliminary results of a sur-
vey she presented to about 40 res-
idents at Old City Hall Monday.
Karen Larson's study, com-
missioned by the city, sums up
the island pretty accurately: "It's
one laid-back human family in a
artsy, small-town paradise."
And while salaries are not sat-
isfying residents, Larson says it
doesn't take lavish luxuries to
make most Key Westers happy.
Island residents, who put up with a
lot of stress, are "tough," she says.
But that toughness doesn't wash
away concerns for the future,
"There is a sense on the island
that the future of the culture will
be determined by money," she
said in an interview. "While
that's partly the case, it's not
entirely the case."
People have to step up and
make the city what they want, she
said, reading suggestions from
returned surveys, including more
organized cleanup, and support
for keeping Conchs in the com-
munity and for local business.
Larson stresses closing the
divide between classes, if only by
a small margin to start. But how
can 'developers form symbiotic
relationships with residents iwho
are skeptical of,them? And what
about the widespread skepticism
of local officials?
According to Larson, the

Tuition hike official


Raises coming
for FKCC staff
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


One swift movement of Gov.
Charlie Crist's hand on
Monday and a 5 percent tuition
hike was signed for students
who will enroll in spring class-
es at Florida Keys Community
College.
That will give the school a
$32,000 boost it'll use for,
among other things, employee
raises and pursuing partner-
ships with day-care centers and
offering bachelor's degrees.
But the increase is offset by
$117,453 in legislative cuts to
the college budget. Overall,
Florida community colleges
will sustain a combined $30
million in cuts.
At Monday's meeting of the
board of trustees, college
President Jill Landesberg-,
Boyle said the $32,000 will
make it possible to give a $500
base raise to all employees,
excluding top-level administra-
tors, for the holidays. That raise
will come at the heels of a
$1,000 lump-sum increase
pushed by former President
William Seeker and given to all
employees in September.
Crist vetoed the
Legislature's previous attempt
to increase tuition, but numer-
ous students across Florida
voiced their support for tuition
hikes, realizing the necessity
given tight college budgets.
Crist later agreed.
Along with the 5 percent
raise, the tuition rate will be
linked to the nation's annual
inflation rate starting in fall
2008. The inflation rate is
measured by the nation's
Consumer Price Index.
Due to the September raises,
college spending is up 10 per-
cent from the last fiscal year,
according to Comptroller
Brittany Snyder.
Landesberg-Boyle boasted
of 8.5 percent in reserves; the
state requires only 5 percent.
But Snyder and Landesberg-
Boyle warned against sitting on
too much money, stating it
could make the college more of
a budget-cutting target.
Auxiliary revenue continues
to bolster the budget, with
funds coming from homeland-


security company Raytheon
because it rents office space on
the campus and staff conducts
the firm's employee-screening
test. Money also comes from
the Efollet campus bookstore.
Fresh initiatives addressed
Monday:
+ Hodges University, which
has campuses in Naples and
Fort Myers, is partnering with
FKCC to provide bachelor's
degrees to students interested
in business administration and
disciplinary studies.
Landesberg-Boyle said
Wesley House Family Services
and the YMCA have expressed
interest in partnering with the
college, offering students
opportunities to work at day-
care facilities while they're
enrolled.
"We have under-utilized
space," Landesberg-Boyle said,


adding the college needs to
focus more on projects that
"benefit the community at
large."
The YMCA also approached
her about an existing mold
problem, and FKCC could offer
temporary housing for the
agency.
+ The board discussed the
necessity for granting endow-
ments, which would produce
interest for donations. The
board agreed you can't ask for
things from the community
without giving some yourself.
The nursing program has
expanded for the spring semes-
ter, offering 24 more students a
seat.
Beginning in January is
the college's first Educator
Prep Institute offering classes
for certification to teach
kindergarten to 12th grade.
The dual enrollment pro-
gram will also be expanded.

ANOTHER FANTASY'S OVER: A reproduction of an oil-well pump rolls down Duval Street in
Key West late Saturday as a facet of the Lazy Dog Adventure Club's Fantasy Fest Parade
entry protesting global warming. An estimated 60,000 revelers watched the highlight event
of the 10-day Fantasy Fest that ended Sunday.



Care givers getting busy


Samuel's House
is already full,
the director says
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

It's getting cold up north,
which means the snowbirds are
on their way.
But not all seasonal residents
have homes to come to,
Historically, the homeless popu-
lation in the Keys grows in the
winter along with the housed.
"We have been full since June
- with a waiting list," said
Elinira Leto, executive director
of Samuel's House, a Key West
shelter for homeless woman and
their children.
The facility serves up to 48
people at one time.
"It's been mostly momS with
children," she said. "I'm seeing
more single moms without that
extra income of a partner being
unable to stay in housing.
They're having to choose
between feeding their children
and housing."
The Keys Overnight
Temporary Shelter, or KOTS, at
the Monroe County Detention
Center on Stock Island isn't at
nnanritv vet qnid Rev Stenhen


Braddock, executive director of
the homeless service Florida
Keys Outreach Coalition.
"We haven't seen any
increase yet," he said.."It's prob-
ably coming, but it's nothing like
the overflow we had last January
and February."
KOTS has room for 126 peo-
ple, but season last year saw
some 150 a night. Braddock said
the population is hovering
around 100 right now.
"The transitional housing is
full, though," he said.
Like Samuel's House, the
program for men provides up to
90 days shelter while residents
get their lives back in order.
"We've made some changes
to try to anticipate what's to
come," said Mark Szurek,
regional director for Catholic
Charities. That agency provides
housing in three facilities for up
to 42 people.
"We've been trying to focus
more on making this a step
process," Szurek said. "KOTS is
for people who are totally unem-
ployed and destitute. Catholic
Charities provides transitional
housing."
One of the "steps" allows res-
idents to stay for up to nine
months with nnminal rent


Braddock points out that a
good number of KOTS users
actually have a job.
"It's a very good crowd,"
Braddock said. "The vast major-
ity are working. We're offering
more life-skills things, which
seems to be helping a lot."
Severe budget cuts across the
board don't bode well for the
possible swell in the homeless
population.
"We took a hit with Monroe
County," Braddock said. "We're
getting one third of what we had
been getting."
This year the county granted
the Outreach Coalition $48,000.
In addition, a state grant for
$200,000 one the Outreach
Coalition counts on each year for
operational costs now requires
$75,000 of that funding to be
used for strengthening facilities
against hurricane-force winds.
At Samuel's House, where
the population is already at its
limit, funding has been drastical-
ly reduced, Leto said.
"We lost a grant," she said.
"And an emergency-shelter
grant where we had applied for
$200,000 only granted us
$23,900. It shocked us."
SLeto said the difference has to
be made up locally, and she
hopes the community is feeling
charitable.

Electrical issues fuel acrimony


Solar vs. grid
pits neighbors
on No Name Key
By KELLI KENNEDY
Associated Press

For-sale signs bring anxiety in
No Name Key.
Potential buyers dreaming of
solitude and coconuts are forced
to choose. The decision can
determine which neighbors will
shun them.
And quickly new residents
realize the peaceful tropical
island they longed for was poi-
soned years ago over electricity
- or lack of it. Now the roughly
40 homeowners are caught
between solar power and rain cis-
terns or grid electricity and public
water.
It's been four years since a
major lawsuit. But its undercur-
rent is fiercely felt.
The sleepy Lower Keys island
has unknowingly become a sym-
bol of a larger fight over the soli-
tude of the old Keys and the strip
malls and traffic development
that have overrun today's Keys.
Hallett and Linda Douville
spend every night on their porch,
with its white wicker rocking
chairs, watching wildlife roam
the backyard. They moved to No
Name in 1990, guessing the elec-

tricity issue would help the island
hold out to development the
longest, and fear grid power is a
welcome mat for developers,
McMansions and their manicured
lawns.
David Eaken's family has
been fighting for grid power since
they bought property almost 40
years ago. They spearheaded a
lawsuit along with nearly 30
other residents to bring grid
power to the island, spending
thousands of dollars before it was
dismissed in 2003 for lack of
preparation.
He calls the solar group pious
and their lifestyle "a big, green
lie."
The dispute was acrimonious,
the Douvilles say.
"There were really, really
huge fights over it. Everybody
was suing everybody else,' Linda
Douville says.
Still, it's tough to be angry on
No Name Key. Life simple and
woodsy about three-quarters
of the way to Key West from the
mainland and, well off U.S. 1.
Solar panels cover almost
every roof, although many also
supplement those with generators
- a contentious subject on No
Name Key. Residents who use
them say they can't live without
air conditioning. The bugs make

icy too itchy.
Solar-powered residents say
they manage just fine without
cooled air.
Grid power won't necessarily
bring development. It's difficult
to build here with 70 percent, or
about 820 acres of the island, pro-
tected as part of the National Key
Deer Refuge. Building is dicey
on the remaining land because of
zoning rules.
The residents proudly speak of
the island's quirky history. They
say it was a training ground for
the Bay of Pigs invasion, though
the CIA won't acknowledge it.
Most months, Eaken and oth-
ers produce more energy than
they need. Because they aren't
connected to the power grid, they"
can't sell it back.
"The only way to make an
impact, outside the walls of your
home, is to be connected to the
grid in order to sell back the wast-
ed energy produced on high-solar
energy days," says Eaken, a 36-
year-old officer with the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Commission.
On the flip side, he spends
about $700 a month wasting
diesel fuel to run his generator for
air conditioning. He worries of


the potential dangers brought by
storing vast amounts of fossil
fuel.
If solar residents don't want
the connection to the main power
grid, they can cut the line, but
"give us the option," he argues.
"There is no nobility in self-
ishly producing energy just for
your house and standing back
with a smug look on your face for
two decades," Eaken said.
But the island's solar-energy
enthusiasts were outraged at the
thought of their chunk of paradise
getting hooked up to the grid,
worrying it would bring the same
development the rest of the Keys
has experienced.
Mick Putney is a 78-year-old
retired university sociology pro-
fessor with a white ponytail,
beard and wire rimmed glasses.
He spent nearly two years design-
ing and building the 2,000-
square-foot home that he and his
wife. Alicia moved to in 1992.
That was before greening was
trendy, so the welder, mason and
jack of all trades came up with
many of his own inventions. For
example, the lids on the overflow
pipes of his usually full 16,500-
gallon cistern are truck exhaust


Sylvia F.
Born July 11, 1919 in Prov
SDeceased October 17, 2007

Survived and loved by her two sons, Joseph
(Susan) Jewell of Mt.View,AK and Timothy
(Jane) Jewell of Jacksonville, N.C. and
daughter Susan (Richard) Curry of
Marathon, FL, as well as 4 grandchildren, 6
great-grandchildren and husband Don White.

Her husband of 50 years,Joseph Jewell and her
grandson, Joseph Jewell V, predeceased her.

Sylvia was a longtime resident of Marathon,
since 1981.

She was a member of St. Columba Episcopal
Church and a long-standing volunteer at
Fishermen's Hospital.

A memorial service will be held
Sunday Nov. 4 at 1:00 pm
S at St. Columba Episcopal Church.

Donations in lieu of flowers can be sent to
Marathon Animal Shelter.

Solar energy more than ade-
quately powers his two comput-
ers, printer, televisions, refrigera-
tor, dishwasher, "the whole disas-
ter," he says. He points proudly to
the rusty green generator in his
workshop, which hasn't run in
five years.
"We kind of take pride in not
having a working generator. It's
sort of a solar macho thing," he
says.
Putney built the house know-
ing they'd go without air condi-
tioning.
"I don't like what we're doing
to the planet," he said. "At least
in my own life I can try to do bet-
ter and apart from that I just don't
like waste."
Putney and others have
formed a cliquish circle against
an outside world filled with pave-
ment and traffic.
One new resident wanted
street lights, Linda Douville says
in disbelief.
She says "it's a constant battle
with new people that come in
who want electricity to make
them realize we're out here for a
reason."

Ripley's going global


Key West site
just a small
piece of empire
McClatchy Tribune

Before their recent Orlando
visit, Martha and Jared
Hammond knew little about the
famed 20th-century adventurer,
cartoonist and connoisseur of the
bizarre, Robert Ripley, and his
penchant for collecting the plan-


et's strangest facts and weirdest
objects.
But then they happened on the
Ripley's Believe It or Not!
Odditorium, a tourist attraction
smaller than some new houses
but big enough to hold a petrified
man, a replica of a vintage Rolls-
Royce made of more than a mil-
lion matchsticks, and an array of
other curios.
"We had done all the other
tourist stuff and were kind of


bored, until we spotted this," said
Martha Hammond, 24. "We saw
the Ripley show on TV, but we
never knew about this stuff. It's
pretty crazy."
The odditorium is one of 28
-including the one at 108 Duval
St., Key West, and counting -
that now dot the globe, all part of
a growing portfolio of small
attractions that are making
Orlando-based Ripley Entertain-

Gay travel market growing


That's the reason
behind new
training program
McClatchy Tribune

Have you heard the one about
the hotel clerk and the gay
tourists?
Not funny.
For gay and lesbian couples,
checking in at the front desk can
be the most uncomfortable part of
a trip. (Ope .bed or .two?) For


hotels, it can mean the difference
between building loyalty and los-
ing customers.
Key West is known as a desti-
nation for gay people, so most
Southernmost City hotels are
used to that clientele. But other
areas might not necessarily be.
So the Philadelphia (Pa.) Gay
Tourism Caucus has begun a sen-
sitivity-training program believed
to be the first of its kind in the
United States.
Aleady, at least one marquee


travel corporation wants to
license the interactive program
nationally as an educational
model for increasing gay tourism.
Ka-ching!
Designed for hotels and relat-
ed businesses, the hour-long pres-
entation features skits of situa-
tions commonly encountered by
gay travelers. Actors stay in char-
acter throughout.
The program made its debut at
the Philadelphia Marriott Down-
town before 45 managers. The

Ripley's moving into places formerly prohibitive


RIPLEY'S / From 13

overlooked, fixture in the global
tourist trade.
"Ripley's is regarded as one of
the best-run attractions compa-
nies in the industry," said Dennis
Speigel, president of Inter-
national Theme Park Services in
Cincinnati. "They offer a quality
product, they have well-done
attractions and people never feel
ripped off."
Now, after decades operating
in the shadows of larger attrac-
tions, Ripley's is beginning to
burst out.


This summer, it opened a
17,000-square-foot. odditorium

DaGrossa said. "Ripley's feeds
off impulse buys and tourist
flows. We haven't changed the
underlying model. It's just bigger
and more elaborate."
Since 1985, Ripley's has been
a subsidiary of The Jim Pattison
Group, one of Canada's largest
privately held companies, with
more than $5.7 billion in annual
sales. That has given it financial
clout, which has helped it attract
partners.
The New York odditorium,
built by DaGrossa's group, cost
five times as much as the average
Ripley's, Ripley Entertainment
President Bob Masterson said.


The London location, to be built
by the same franchisee, will cost
10 times the typical price,
Masterson said.
"Even as Ripley's takes on the
world's great cities with its signa-
ture odditoriums, it continues
pushing to extend its brand into
areas beyond museums filled
with curiosities.
The company now has two
aquariums; a new resort in
Niagara Falls, Ontario; and an
assortment of wax museums,
miniature-golf courses, haunted-
mansion attractions, and interac-
tive movie theaters.
"It's all part of a changing

model of how our business gets
done," Masterson said. "Places
like 42nd Street in New York
were once prohibitive from a cost
perspective. That has changed."
The company has never had to
sell itself the way others in the
business do. Even before the first
odditorium opened more than a
half-century ago, Ripley's had an
international following.
The Ripley's Believe It or Not
cartoon strip appeared in several
hundred newspapers starting in
1918. Even today, the cartoon
lives on in nearly 200 newspapers
in 42 countries about a dozen
of the papers in the United States.


Gay travel:

Big bucks

TOURISM / From 13

1,408-room Marriott markets
itself as gay-friendly.
In one skit, a black man and
his white partner, cradling their
black baby, argue with a check-in
clerk who questions their request
for one king-size bed instead of
two doubles.
It's not just a skit. On a recent
trip to Calgary, Alberta, market-
ing executive Tami Sortman and
her partner ran into almost the
same situation.
"The clerk said, 'But there's
two of you,' Sortman said. "I
said, 'That's correct. We're here
to be in one room, in one bed,
together.' She was very embar-
rassed and didn't know what to
say. It was awkward."
In another skit, a homophobic
waiter gives lousy service to a
lesbian couple at their anniver-
sary dinner. In another, a clueless
repairman makes a lesbian cou-
ple uncomfortable in their room
at night.
Debra Blair, a professor in
Temple's School of Tourism and.
Hospitality, helped create the
program and served as modera-
tor for the Marriott presentation.
Ultimately, of course, it's all
about the Benjamins because gay
tourism is big business.
Typically, gays and lesbians
stay at better hotels, spend more
money and stick around longer
than do their heterosexual coun-
terparts, according to a 2006 sur-
vey by the Travel Industry of
America.

Conservation goes to college

Cooking oil as

By KYLE TEAL : "
kteal@keynoter.com .


It's only natural that the
going-green trend spreading
across the country would make
its way into campuses, and
Florida Keys Community
College can say it has a plan
that would make the most
devoted of conservationists
green with envy.
A list of conservation efforts
for the Stock Island include ren-
ovation of the Clark Maxwell
Marine Environmental Habitat
Center, a once-thriving nature
and educational refuge for stu-
dents to escape to before
Hurricane Wilma ravaged the
area.
Three kiosks were set up in
the facility with photographs of
students working with marine
life. Co-eds walked the bayside
of the campus where a lush
nature walk once provided a
floral oasis.
The restoration project will
focus on bringing back the cen-
ter's touch-tank, once filled
with mangroves and fish such
as tarpon. A quiet haven will be
resurrected, complete with
shade from a pavilion.
Mark Woods and William
Trantham of the Marine
Environmental Technology
Department have stepped up to
transform the area with envi-
ronmentally friendly measures
like small wind turbines for
energy.
"The storm wreaked havoc
on the center dislodged our
touch tank pretty much dam-
aged everything," Trantham
said. "Our goal is to convert it
into a green energy facility."
Trantham said the center cost
about $250,000 when it was
first constructed a few years
ago. This time around, busi-
nesses and entities are helping
out.

Both items, along with an

play at a seminar from 11 a.m.
to 2 p.m. Saturday at the college
Environmental Center.
Such seminars will become
regularly scheduled events to
spread education about how
simple it is to conserve,
Trantham said.
"I think the whole country is
tired of depending on foreign
oil," Trantham said.
Converting to vegetable oil
isn't the only new and innova-
tive technique taking form on
campus. The little things matter,
too, everything from swapping
out incandescent light bulbs to
installing recycled carpet.
Doug Pryor, director of pur-
chasing and plant operations,
says the college is now requir-
ing every contractor it hires to
adhere to LEED, or Leadership

The college is forming green
partnerships along the way.
It's hosting members of
Green Living and Energy
Education at Saturday's forum,
and last week college represen-
tatives attended a presentation
aimed at setting goals to beauti-
fy College Road.
Hosted by Carolann Sharkey,
chairman of Key West
Botanical Garden Society, the
workshop included a rendering
of a possible vision, including
native vegetation spanning the
length of the road and a Mount
Trashmore the giant waste
transfer site vaporized and
transformed into a "beautiful
garden and center for marine


study," Sharkey said.
Some candidates in the Nov.
6 city runoff election have
named Mount Trashmore as
prime real estate for potential
affordable housing.
Sharkey said the city can
probably find better locations
for housing and that a green
spot, akin to New York's
Central Park, is more desirable.
"It would be really nice to
emulate what they thought
about it," she said. "Our whole
thesis is to go totally green. The
idea is to decrease the traffic
passing through."
The beautification project
includes possibly extending the
sidewalk, segmenting the bike
trail, cleaning up a nearby lake
and using solar lighting.

It took a few minutes for the
Canes to get on the board, but
when they did, the goals came in

Arsenault said the team used the
opportunity to get first-year
players some time on the field.
"It was a chance for us to
work on some stuff and play
some of the younger players
who haven't been exposed to

For the Dolphins, at least half
their players aren't even in high

big victory

Marathon High School run-
ning back Sergio Howard nor-
mally makes plays with his feet,
but it was his arm that gave the
Dolphins a 7-0 lead on their
first offensive play of the game
Friday against district rival
Ransom Everglades School.
The star senior threw an 80-
yard touchdown pass to wide
receiver Fernando Taylor on the
Dolphins' first offensive play of
the game.
He did plenty of running as


well, rushing for 237 yards and
two touchdowns on just 11 car-
ries to lead the Dolphins to vic-
tory on the Raiders' rain-soaked
home field, 26-7, and improve
to 5-3.
Marathon coach Lance
Martin said he wanted to run
the halfback option play before
the field conditions got worse.
SThe Dolphins clinched the
District 8-2B championship
with the win. The result of their
final district game against
Parkway Friday will have no
bearing on the standings, as
Marathon hold the tiebreaker
over second-place University

Dolphins were forced to alter game plan due to rain, mud


MARATHON / From 18

The rain Friday was bad
enough that Martin said the team
stopped at a Sports Authority on
the way to buy footballs, so
enough dry ones would be avail-
able during the game.
"It was probably the worst
conditions we've played in since
I've been here. It was just com-
ing down in buckets," Martin
said. "The third and fourth quar-
ters, it was a downpour."
Martin said he was concerned
going in because he felt the
heavy rains took away the
Dolphins' biggest advantage over
the Raiders speed. The team
had to abandon the game plan
they had practiced all week in
favor of running between the
tackles.
"This was set up for them
because our biggest advantage
was speed. It was pretty much


negated because of the weather,"
he said. "We were concentrating
on hitting them outside."
But the revised game plan
didn't stop the Dolphins from
breaking long gains, as Howard
put the Dolphins up 14-0 in the
first quarter on a 56-yard touch-
down run.
Martin said the Dolphins ran
only eight offensive plays in the
first half and still managed to put
20 points on the board. The team
took a 20-7 lead into the half
after Ransom scored on a one-
yard touchdown pass in the sec-
ond quarter.
Martin said the Warriors were
attempting to slow the pace of
the game as much as possible.
"We were just scoring as soon
as we got it and they [were] using
as much of the play clock as they
could every play," he said.
The Raiders had little success
offensively, rushing 42 times for
162 yards. They had 56 yards


passing, 33 of which came on a

ICS falls in double OT


w


Princeton ends
Eagles' run in
District 8 tourney
By JAMES BROOKS
jbrooks@keynoter.com

Few sports teams get second
chances the Island Christian
boys' soccer team had four of
them. It still wasn't enough.
On Friday, the ICS Eagles
faced Princeton Christian in the
District 8 soccer finals, the fourth
time Island Christian played
Princeton this season.
Though the meeting was new,
the result was not, as the Eagles
fell 3-2 in double overtime, end-
ing their season at 9-5-1 with
four of the team's five losses
coming at the hands of Princeton.
Though ICS failed to eke out a
win, the match was by far the
closest of the four meetings.
"We definitely saved our best
game for last," Island Christian
coach Robert Lucas said.
Princeton, which had hurt ICS
during the year with quick play,
was hampered by bad weather. "It
rained all day," Lucas said, "so it


kind of negated their speed."
That fact didn't keep Princeton
from scoring the first goal
halfway through the first half to
earn the early lead.
ICS equalized the score in the
50th minute as Timmy Globus
found the back of the net.
Princeton answered a few min-
utes later, and it seemed the
Eagles would once again be
denied the victory.
With eight seconds remaining
and the referees shouting out the
final countdown, Island Christian
had one final chance to send the
game into overtime.
A long midfield pass from
Nathan Overfield set up Aaron
Izaguirre in front of the Princeton
goal, and with just three seconds
remaining, Izaguirre punched the
ball in.
"They just didn't mark up in
the last 10 seconds," Lucas said,
"and that let us get open and
score."
With the score at 2-2, the
teams entered the first of two
scheduled overtime periods. In
Florida high school soccer, the
rules stipulate a "sudden victory"
system that awards the win to the
first team to score in one of the


SOCCER / From 18

team," he said.
The Canes dictated the pace
of play for the entire game, most
of which was spent on the
Dolphin half of the field. If not
for the play of Dolphin freshman
standout Kelly Struyf in goal,
Coral Shores would have been
on the board much earlier in the
game.
She made a diving save early
before challenging another Cane
player dribbling in unopposed.
But the Canes were persistent
and finally scored when senior
Samantha Ragan booted one low
past Struyf from inside the. 18-
yard line.
The Canes would add another
goal from junior Julia Hatfield,
who handled a nice pass and net-
ted it high to Struyf's left.
After a water break, Struyf


moved out into the field to help
defend against the talented
Canes forwards. Eighth-grader
Julietta Pezzela replaced her in
net and Doll praised her efforts
against a good team.
But the Canes kept coming,
as Hatfield headed in her second
goal off a well-placed crossing
ball from sophomore Jennifer
Tiziani to make it 3-0.
Coral Shores continued to put
pressure on the Dolphins and
won most balls in the open field.
They took a 4-0 lead before the
half on a goal by sophomore
Andrea Cockerham.
The Dolphins responded well
after the half, appearing more
aggressive, but never threatened
to score on the Canes.
The game ended 7-0 after
second half goals. by senior
Chelsea McCullough, senior
Brooks Burdick and a penalty
kick by freshman Careni Lopez.

two 10-minute overtime periods.
During the first overtime, each
team had several opportunities to
, score but failed to capitalize on
the chances. At the end of the first
overtime, the score remained
knotted at two.
Halfway through the second
overtime, the Eagles had their
best opportunity to end the game,
but a line-drive kick was saved by
the Princeton goalkeeper. One
minute later, Princeton had a sim-
ilar opportunity.
Unlike the Eagles, Princeton
didn't miss.
"We just wanted to play our
best game against them," Lucas
said, "and we did that."
With the victory, Princeton
advances to the sectional round of
the fall soccer playoffs. Though
the loss ends what had been a
promising season for the Eagles,
Lucas believes the season was a
success.
"Last year, we weren't com-
petitive at all. This is definitely a
great accomplishment."
The team graduates five
starters from this year's team:
Matt Izaguirre, Andy Hertel,
Chris Richmond, Charlie Marmitt
and Ezra Jimenez.
"It will be a rebuilding
process," Lucas said.

Hurricanes fall short in showdown at Naples


Coral Shores
nearly comes
back at end
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Coral Shores High
School football team lost a
close game against one-loss St.
John Neumann High School in
Naples Friday, 21-19.'
Coach Todd Gideon said the
Canes had the ball near mid-
field with roughly 30 seconds
on the clock when quarterback
Chris Rini had the ball knocked
from his grasp while trying to
make a play.
The Celtics pounced on the
junior's fumble to secure the
victory.
"Chris was trying to make
something happen and instead
of going out of bounds, he went
up field. You can't blame [him],
he's a competitor," Gideon said.
"Those are things you learn....
He was trying to put the team in
a position to win."
But as it turned out, a missed
extra point in the second quar-
ter made the difference for the
Canes. Gideon said bad footing
led to a missed attempt after
their first touchdown and they
failed to convert a two-point
conversion following their sec-


ond score, which left them
down 14-12 at the half.
"We make that [extra point]
and the next one it's a different
ball game, but that's part of the
game," he said.
Coral Shores fell behind 14-
0 early in the second quarter,
but only minutes later Rini
threw an 80-yard touchdown
pass to junior wide receiver
Ryan Biondoletti. The score
brought the Canes within 14-6
after the failed extra point.
"We basically called fly pat-
terns and went to [a four-receiv-


er set] for the first time in the
game and nobody covered
Ryan," Gideon said of the long
scoring play.
The Canes stopped the
Celtics on their next possession
and immediately scored again
on a punt return by senior
Randell Jackman. Gideon said
the Canes put pressure on their
line, forcing the punter to
scramble and barely get off a
pooch punt.
Jackman picked it up on one
hop and ran it in. untouched to
make it a 14-12 game at the
half.
After a scoreless third quar-


ter, the Celtics found the end
zone again to take a 21-12 lead.
It would stay that way until Rini
found Jackman for an 8-yard
scoring play with around 2:00
left in the game, bringing the
'Canes within two points.
They forced a Celtic punt,
but eventually lost after the
Rini fumble on a last-minute
drive.
Rini completed 9 of 25 pass
attempts in the game for 194
yards and two touchdowns.
Biondoletti had 139 of those
yards on four catches and also
ran for 27 yards on two carries.
Jason Soares ran for 41 yards


on six carries and both he and
Jackman intercepted a ball on
defense.
Gideon said while he would
never consider a loss a victory,
there were many positives to be
found in the team's perform-
ance against a tough opponent.
"These guys are really well-
coached, so you look at the
matchup and we had to play a
heck of a game to compete and
we did," he said.
Coral Shores (2-5) will host
Doral this Friday at 7:30 p.m.
before hosting Keys rival
Marathon High School Nov. 9
in their regular season finale.


Lady Conchs look strong in preseason play


Soccer team
wins and ties
in tournament
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Displaying a defense that had a
mid-season look; the Key West
High School girls' soccer team
tied longtime rival Miami Killian,
1-1, Saturday at a preseason tour-
nament at North Broward Prep in
Coconut Creek.
It was the second game of a
doubleheader for the Conchs, who


defeated Mary Prep, 9-0, in the
opener.
Key West scored against
Killian early in the first half when
freshman Jennifer Barcenas broke
through two defenders and beat
the keeper with an 18-yard kick.
With a defense anchored by
Monica Bertram and featuring
Chloe DeVelasco, Kaitlin
Hopkins, Cheryl Chavka and
Natalie Dudley, the Conchs held
the 1-0 lead until Killian scored on
a free kick with five minutes left
in the game.
"We really let them off the


hook at the end, but I was very sat-
isfied with our overall play, espe-
cially the defense," coach Scott
Paul said.
.In the first game against Mary
Prep, which was stopped by the
mercy rule after the first half, the
Conchs got four goals from senior
Kara Haack.
"Kara was scoring with both
her right and left foot and shooting
from outside, which is what we're
hoping for from her this year,"
Paul said.
Kriz Menenz and Gigi Orofino
each added two goals against a
team that is new to soccer.
The Conchs open the regular


season with two road games this
weekend, at 6 p.m. Friday at
Wellington and at 2 p.m. Saturday
at Jupiter.

Keys runners race to cross-country district


Boban, Harden

Coral Shores' Tyler Boban
and Key West's Zach Harden,
the top two prep runners in
Monroe County, are about to
find out how far their legs will

They will be among a strong

at Archbishop McCarthy High

Boban, a senior, won the
recent county championships,
finishing in 17:53, three sec-
onds faster than the Conch
sophomore.
"I expect both of them to be
in the top 10," Key West boys'
coach Terence White said.

regionals, and a team needs to
be in the top six to go on.
"It's going to be so close for
us," said White, aware of the
stiff competition from cross-
country powers Belen Jesuit
and Ransom Everglades. Belen
senior Guillermo Echarte
recently won the Dade County
Youth Fair Invitational in 16:10.
White believes that instead
of just racing against each other,
Boban and Harden will "work

Belen and Ransom kids."
In addition to Boban, Coral

es for 50 point. Top captain
was Joe Baltes. on whose
boat virtually all of the
snook catches occurred.

husband Bill, enjoy being out on the water. -


Keys los1

DuVal passes
with 139 IGFA
world records

The world of light-tackle
sportfishing lost its matriarch
Oct. 14.
Gene DuVal, or Mrs. William
B. DuVal as she liked to be
called, died in her home state of
Virginia at age 64.
She had achieved every honor
a sportfisherman fisher-
woman? could ever receive.
She also was credited with 139
International Game Fish
Association world records the
most ever for a woman and sec-
ond most all-time for any person.
DuVal's love affair with the
Keys was long lived and she
fished with the who's who of
light-tackle fishing such as R.T.
Trosset and Chip Veach out of
Key West, to name a couple.
Despite her skill with the rod
and reel, she was always humble


e fishing

T .r Kwhen it
came to her
accom -
plishments,
according
to Capt.
Ken Harris
of Key
West.
'When I
would con-
gratulate
her on an
outstand-
Cal Sutphin ing world
record,
Gene would always immediately
say that it was because of [her
husband] Bill putting her on fish
or gave the credit to the captain
who guided her. She never once
took credit herself. Don't let that
fool you, though. She was a
fierce competitor."
When you open up theIGFA
record book, under women's
records, the name "Mrs. William
B. DuVal" pops up quite often.
"She was so proud to be Mrs.


legend

William B. DuVal," Harris said.
"If an award was given to her
with her name Gene DuVal on it,
she would ask to have it done
over. She truly loved her husband
and Bill was her best fishing
buddy."
DuVal's immediate family had
this to say in her obituary, printed
in the Richmond Times Dispatch
Oct. 17:
"Her husband Bill was her
partner, her traveling and fishing
playmate, and her life. Her chil-
dren and grandchildren were her
everything. She lived to spend
time with them. Gene lived every
moment to the fullest. Her
favorite song was 'What a
Wonderful World' by Louis
Armstrong; she said that song
said it all and it did. She also
loved the water and fishing. She
will be missed by people all over
the world and she has touched so
many lives."

Keys Fishing


Wednesday, October 31,2007 25


Variety's the spice of fishing lately


Staying on the
Move is the key
Ever notice how sometimes
people that write about fishing
are mostly wrong?
All it takes is for one angler to
have a good day when the fishing
isn't supposed to be that good to
prove you wrong or someone not
to have a good day when they just
read about all of the great action.
Then on rare occasion, writers
like me hit it right on but only
on a rare occasion. This happened
this past week with the bay
action.
The variety of fish that have
become active in the bay waters
is tremendous. I'm not saying
that everywhere in the bay is red-
hot, but rather that if you move


around
w h e n
u when
where you
are is slow,
chances are
you will hit
Son some
t spots where
." othe action is
good.
Several
..,..., n ang 1 ers
quoted me
after last
Dave Navarro week's col-
umn, when
I wrote about what to expect in
the bay. Well, they as well as I
spent a couple days fishing the
bay and as it turned out, I was
right for once (no, I'm not trying
to strain my shoulder patting
myself on the back here).


'Mentor and ... friend'


SUTPHIN / From 24

Myatt, speaking at DuVal's
memorial service, said, "The
fishing world has a very large
hole in the water right now. She
was a mentor and great friend.
Gene had 139 world records
when she passed, her first in 1976
- a 55-pound cobia on 6-pound
[test], her last in 2006, a 6-pound,
8-ounce black/blue rockfish."
DuVal was membership chair-
woman of the International
Women's Fishing Association


and an active member since 1973.
She was the recipient of the
IWFA Hall of Fame Award. She
was also the Virginia representa-
tive for the IGFA as well as the
first woman ever to get its
Outstanding AchievementAward.
Memorial donations can be
sent to the IWFA Scholarship
Fund in the name of Gene DuVal,
P.O. Box 21066, Fort Lauderdale,
FL 33335-1066.
Cal Sutphin hosts 'Reelin' in
the Keys'friom 7 to 10 a.m. week-
days on radio station WFFG
1300-AM.


All of the 12 groups that ven-
tured out well into the bay had
good catches and all reported the
same thing not a great deal of
any one species but rather a wide
variety of fish. There were very
nice lane snapper, legal mutton
snapper and legal yellowtail in
quite a few areas, along with man-
grove snapper, trout, redfish, blue-
fish, some nice mackerel, ladyfish
and reports of some cobia.
I know what you are asking
right about now: Where did all of
these people find these fish? Well,
being a true fisherman, I'm kind
of foggy on that information.
Actually none of us found a
great deal of fish in any one area.
It was not on wrecks but rather by
working the white spots plentiful
in the bay when it is clear enough
to see the bottom. Most all of the
action was in the region from
about 6 miles north-northeast of
Boulard Bank, eastward toward
Sprigger Bank.
We all just worked the white
spots for a time and moved on
again. I don't think I fished a spot
for more than an hour at a time.
The fish would be good at first
and then slow to almost nothing
in about 30 to 40 minutes. This is
normal for the bay this time of
year and by moving, we all put
together a good catch.
I can also point out that the
farther east we worked (toward
Sprigger Bank), the more we got
into the trout and mackerel. The
lane and mutton snapper were on
the spots we worked farther out,
say 12 to 16 miles from Marathon


almost due north of the airport.
This type of action should con-
tinue for some weeks, until the
temperature of the bay settles
down with upcoming cold fronts.
If you have the opportunity, take
advantage of it. Take a wide vari-
ety of bait along, as you will never
know just what you will find.
For those that like fishing the
oceanside, there has been quite a
bit of scattered action offshore,
with dolphin passing through
from time to time. Those that hit
on the passing weed patches or
debris were very happy.
Most who spent time looking
for fish were rewarded by at least
a few tunas or a wahoo, if not
some bonita.
If you are headed to the reef
and wonder what it would be like
offshore, the best action has been
within 6 miles off the reef. So if
you want to, scoot out and see if
there is anything around. If not,


just turn back to the reef and all
you have lost is a little time and a
few gallons of fuel. If there is
something there, you will have
the opportunity (you'll never
know if you don't go).
The reef action has picked up
dramatically the past couple of
days. Yellowtail and muttons are
the highlight in most of the areas
around the Middle Keys. To the
west, grouper have been quite
good along with a good number
of leftover mangrove snapper.
Kingfish are being sought but
at this time, only a few scattered
reports of a fish here or there
have been received. It will take a
few fronts to move the big num-
bers in (I have been known to be
wrong, though).
