Travel expenses,
political funds
are questioned
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Travel expenses, campaign
contributions and questionable
phone bills are line items that
might upset customers of a south
Stock Island sewer operator.
An audit filed Monday with
the Florida Public Service
Commission itemizes a number
of expenses the auditors recom-
mend be subtracted from the
utility's bottom line when the
commission considers a request-
ed rate increase in February.
The audit shows that in 2006,


KW Resort Utilities Corp.
included $19,100 in travel
expenses for owner Bill Smith.
According to the audit, $13,000
was expensed for Smith's plane
fuel and rental cars. Smith's pri-
mary residence and law practice
are in Chicago. The utility paid
another $6,000 that year for
Smith's lodging.
Stephen Reilly, an attorney
for the state Office of Public
Counsel, says Monroe County
ratepayers should not be stuck
with some of these expenses.
"Expensing fuel costs could
be a very unfair and inappropri-
ate practice," he said. "It's his
choice to live in Chicago. We

New fire station on radar


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Marathon City Manager
Mike Puto's recent announce-
ment that a fire station could be
in the works for Grassy Key was
no doubt a relief to many resi-
dents who have long been clam-
oring for service in their area.
Puto informed thie- City
Council of the plans at its Oct.
23 regular meeting, but Fire
Chief Dale Beaver told the
Keynoter the plans are prelimi-
nary at best.
"We're nowhere with it;
we're just discussing where we
might go with it," Beaver said.
The possibility for the station
arose when a man considering
purchasing the Whispering
Pines trailer park on Grassy Key
approached city officials about
donating a portion of the land to
provide fire service to the
island.
"He seemed to be interested
in providing land to us for a
small fire facility and he basi-
cally said he wants to continue
to have discussions," Beaver


said. "Whether he's going to do
it or not, we don't know."
Whispering Pines manager
Bill Sampsel said the park is not
on the market and that the possi-
bility for a fire station at the
park still exists.
"The offer still stands; we'd
love to talk to them. We need [a
fire station] out here," he said.
A fire station on Grassy Key
has been an important issue to
the island's residents for some
time because of the impact it has
on homeowner's insurance bills.
With no fire station within
five miles of their homes and no
fire hydrants, Beaver said insur-
ance companies are "jacking
their rates up super high."
Beaver said water supply is
also an issue on Grassy Key,
which is considered a "low-flow
island."
"That's why there are no
hydrants. The other reason is
there are no six-inch taps out
there on their water lines," he
said. "For someone to [install
them] would cost between


$35,000 and $40,000."
Beaver said water lines with
the necessary taps could have a
hydrant connected for $8,500.
Beaver said should the facili-
ty be built, it would be a much
smaller operation than the new
fire station nearing completion
at Florida Keys Marathon
Airport.
"We looked at some kind of
modular building on stilts [that
could] withstand 155 mph
winds and the trucks would park
underneath," he said. "We could
do it for well under $1 million."
Beaver said Puto's plan
would be to close the Conch
Key fire station, owned, operat-
ed and staffed- by Monroe
County, and combine its
resources with Marathon's
under one roof. The station
would be manned by as many as
18 and a minimum of 12
employees daily.
"Mike is looking at putting
Marathon and Monroe County
in one facility and having them
each run in one direction, but
there are other options," he said.

Troubles continue


CAY CLUBS / From I

has gone through two rounds of
layoffs at its Keys properties
since the spring.
Among the charges Pohl
plans to level are allegations the
units were never redeveloped,
the sales were fraudulently con-
ducted and that Cay Clubs'
salespeople lied about income
potential. He also said alleged
appraisals done by Chase Bank
were fraudulent, and that Chase
might be named in the lawsuit.
Pohl, a human-resources
manager from Salt Lake City,
bought his unit sight-unseen 13
months ago. He says he thought
redeveloping a unit, one that
would also generate some
income while leased out, was a
risk worth taking even in a down
market.
Owners "have got to take
some responsibility because we
got suckered in," he said. "It was
in-your-face fraud, but I guess
we could have walked away."
Many owners up and down
Florida faced the same decision
and acted just as Pohl did.
"At first glance you're say-
ing, 'What a bunch of morons,' "
he said. "But they misrepresent-
ed themselves they gave us
plans and they didn't have any
intention to make this a 'world-
class resort.'"
Pohl might be jumping the
gun a bit, as the lawsuit is not yet
penned, said Chris Cantrell, a
Belt Law Firm lawyer. He said
the firm will file a case against
Cay Clubs' in connection with
its Orlando development within
two weeks, but hasn't yet pre-
pared a suit in the Sarasota case.

i briefs


Belt represents 100 Orlando
investors, he said.
Cay Clubs spokesman Chris
Brown has not returned repeated
calls for comment this week.
Pohl and the Orlando
investors are not alone in bring-
ing these charges against Cay
Clubs.
In September, 23 investors
sued Cay Clubs alleging similar
things in connection with the
Sombrero Cay Club in
Marathon.
Then, in October, a group of
17 investors leveled similar alle-
gations in connection with the
Clearwater Cay Club resort. For
full details on the Clearwater
case, including the connection to
the Marathon case, see Sunday's
Keys Sunday on newsstands and
in the Miami Herald.
Cay Clubs appears to be in
financial disarray.
The company failed to make
scheduled payments it owed
owners in the rental pool at the
Sombrero resort, said Joan
Ptarcinski, a 15-year Sombrero
owner. The unit is doubly cost-
ing the Ptarcinskis: After Cay
Clubs began selling the resort
and promising improvements,
her property taxes went up 56
percent, she says.
Sunvest, a business partner of
Cay Clubs, took over those units
Oct. 18, and has since paid its
share of the bills. But Ptarcincki
said Cay Clubs had not paid her
and her husband since July.
In addition to its Marathon
properties, Cay Clubs recently
gave up management of its
Orlando and Sarasota Cay Clubs
to Sunvest, which owned the
properties.

Glenn Clark (left) receives his national honor from
Commanding Officer J.R. Brown.


Clark lauded


AWARD / From 1

32,000 federal firefighters.
Clark says he's been coming
down to the Keys since the
1960s, back when "you're side
mirrors were about to hit the old
Seven Mile Bridge."
His 24-year career in federal
service took him from Whiting
Field in Santa Rosa County to
Eglin Air Force Base near Fort
Walton Beach. He spent 10 and a
half years in the Navy as a sailor.
"You know you're old when
every ship you've been on has
been decommissioned or ended
on the bottom of the ocean ... or
becomes the razor blades you're
shaving with," he said, laughing.
Following his naval career, he
transferred to civilian federal
firefighting service in the U.S.
Air Force and to a similar job at
NAS Key West just in time for
Hurricane Wilma, he said.
Clark and his two sons, 8 and
11, faired relatively well with the
hurricane the family lives in a
Big Pine home that Clark con-
structed himself.
His mother, 70-year old
Earlene Clark, lives on Ramrod
Key and enjoys spending time
with the boys, as does Clark's sis-,
ter, mobile veterinarian Edie
Clark, who regularly works with
the polydactyl cats at the
Hemingway House.: ; '


"They help me take care of'
my kids," Glenn Clark said.
The firefighting honor was
given for Clark's work in profes-
sional and scientific aspects of
the field. He's charged with,
among other things, conducting
evacuation drills, pushing safety
drills and checks for proper
building permits.
Yet he still finds the time to
raise his children and cast a line
or go diving from his new boat
with his girlfriend.

Keys Opinion


More questions than

answers on sewers

Questions, questions, questions.
When it comes to figuring out the latest twists and turns in
sewering the Keys, things get more than a bit murky.
In today's Keynoter, Key West Bureau Chief Alyson Crean
shines a bright light on a Florida Public Service Commission
audit of KW Resort Utilities.
To have the private, for-profit utility requesting a 56 percent
rate hike at the same time the PSC is finding thousands in ques-
tionable spending by the company's owner frankly stinks.
Of course, this is just based on an audit and nothing has been
proven, but appearances sure do send a wrong message about the
need for rate relief.
And what about KW Resort's push to takeover sewer service
for the Rockland, Big Coppitt and Geiger keys plant being built
by the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority?
That gambit, which surfaced at the County Commission's July
meeting, was dead on arrival one time commissioners man-
aged not to step in something.
Keeping to sewers and twists and turns, we also are looking to
next Thursday's Islamorada council meeting.
On-again and off-again talks between the village and the Key
Largo Wastewater Treatment District over sending village
sewage to a large regional plant have reached a critical juncture.
Councilman Chris Sante, a big proponent of building a
pipeline to Key Largo instead of building three more sewer
plants in Islamorada, hopes to get the issue resolved one way or
the other.
In a list of talking points for Thursday's meeting, Sante argues
that cost comparisons between the pipeline option and building
three more plants in the village have been skewed.
He questions how expensive it will be to provide deep-well
injection for the treated wastewater, knowing that Key Largo is
facing nearly a $1 million price tag for its deep well at today's
prices. So four plants in Islamorada would cost how much for
deep-injection wells?
Add the cost of hiring and keeping sewer plant operators and
buying land for the plants. Sante hopes his fellow council mem-
bers will shy away from the build-it-here mantra without com-
paring true costs.
One of the most intriguing aspects of his critique involves how
to fund these expensive capital projects. With a pipeline, all
property owners can pay a municipal services tax.
That cash flow can be bonded and work on the pipeline can
begin immediately, not in some distant future.
It may be the only way to even get close to meeting the state's
2010 deadline for advanced wastewater treatment in the Keys.

Fallen FWC officer upheld proud tradition


EDITOR:
When the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission loses a dedicated law
enforcement officer in the line of duty, it is
sobering and reminds me that these officers put
their lives on the line every day.
Officer Michelle Lawless was a model for
the exceptional group of men and women who
protect the natural wonders that Floridians treas-
ure and the people who have entrusted them
with that mission.
Since her graduation from the FWC's Law
Enforcement Academy in 2003, she consistently
demonstrated she had the nerve, skill and drive
to take on the challenges of working alone in a
dangerous environment in the southeastern
reaches of Florida.
Officer Lawless, like her coworkers, chose a
profession that would test her instincts and posi-
tion her as a sentinel squarely between one of
the most complex and delicate ecosystems in the
world and its enemies. She was proud to fill that


role.
There are proud traditions behind Officer
Lawless and the other men and women who fill
the ranks of the agency's Division of Law
Enforcement, and those traditions became part
of her. She added a great deal, and her loss sub-
tracted much from those traditions. We at the
FWC are honored that she chose to be one of us,
and we are grateful she was here for us when
duty called.
We will miss her and her contributions to the
great cause of fish and wildlife conservation that
was her calling and her passion.
Rodney Barreto
Chairman, FWC
Coral Gables

Editor's note: Officer Lawless died Oct. 27 in
an ATV crash while patrolling a remote part of
the Everglades, the Holeyland/Rotenberger
Wildlife Management Area.


Storm fear drove luncheon cancellation


EDITOR:
It is with much regret that the Domestic
Abuse Shelter's annual membership lunch-
eon scheduled for Nov. 1 was canceled due
to concerns .of keynote speaker Ted Bunch
with traveling to Key West from New York
due to Tropical Storm Noel.
As best as possible, provisions were made
to be in touch with everyone that had
expressed interest in coming and who had
purchased tickets to inform them that the
luncheon was canceled and rescheduled for
Nov. 30. It is our hope that everyone who
purchased tickets will be able to attend Nov.
30.
As you can see, even the threat of a storm
for someone not familiar with living with the
threat of tropical storms or hurricanes, as we
are here in the Keys, made a decision to
attempt to keep himself safe from the poten-
tial assault he thought he might face in trav-
eling to the Keys.
This is a similar dynamic that victims of
domestic violence face in living with the
threat of knowing that a potential physical,
verbal, mental or psychological assault is
pending in their daily lives by their abusive
partners. While I might have felt it was safe
for Mr. Bunch to travel to the Keys safely
and return back home without harm, only he
could decide what was best for him. The


Spread the wealth
EDITOR:
After reading Key Largo Chamber of
Commerce President Jackie Harder's letter
about shopping locally, I have decided to
cancel my 10-day trip to the Keys.
She is right; you should spend your
money supporting area merchants. I'll get a
hotel room in the Tampa Bay area.

same holds true for victims of domestic vio-
lence.
Victims have to make decisions that are
best for them even when most of us do not
understand their decisions when it appears
they are remaining in an unsafe situation.
Sometimes to leave represents an even more
deadly cost to victims, since the likelihood
that victims are killed increases by 75 per-
cent when a victim attempts to separate from
his or her abuser.
Thanks for your understanding regarding
this unfortunate cancellation. However, if
anyone who has not purchased a ticket
should have interest in attending the lunch-
eon now rescheduled for noon Nov. 30 at the
DoubleTree Grand Key Resort in Key West,
please contact our administration office at
743-5452 for information. RSVPs will be
accepted until.Nov. 26.

Recycling sees some changes


EDITOR:
I will hopefully dispel rumors of what
happens to your recycling. There has
been some confusion because the recy-
cling trucks look similar to the trash
trucks. Well, we have just changed the
color scheme to help identify the differ-
ence so at quick glance you will see the
bright yellow, green and white trucks.
All of the material we pick up with
the recycle trucks goes to a local transfer
station where the truck empties. The
trucks have two compartments, as we
'only do two sorts while making the pick-
up. This allows us to move through the
streets and not cause traffic backups.
The two sorts are fiber, which is
paper products, magazines and such; and
the second we call rigid, which is plastic
1, 2 and 3, tin, aluminum and the three
colors of glass brown, green, clear.
Once we have enough to fill a tractor-
trailer, we load the different sorts in and
ship them up to our material recovery
facility. There, the material is sent
through extensive sorting machines and
manual processes. Then the separated
materials are baled and shipped to mar-


kets worldwide.
The basic program is still the same.
The items need to be rinsed and clean.
Through technology, we have made it
easier for the resident not to sort as much
but again, the items must be clean. You
can leave labels on cans and bottles but
there should be no residue inside. Please
visit our Web site, www.wm.com,
and go to the "Recycle America" tab for
more information.
To learn more about recycling and
waste reduction, please come out to the

learn events Nov.-7 and 10 at the Florida

Club drops anchor at new site


EDITOR:
The Anchors Aweigh Club will be
temporarily moving from our permanent
home at 404 Virginia St. in Key West to
the Old Harris School (formerly the
MARC Plant Store) at 812 Southard St.
while spelling and roofing repairs are
being made. We plan to move today and
return to our original location in early
January.
This repair work has been made pos-
sible thanks to the generous community
support of the Edward B. Knight
Foundation, Klaus/Murphy Foundation,
Coldwell Banker Schmitt Charitable
Foundation, Rollin M. Gerstacker
Foundation, civic groups and anonymous
donors, as well as members of Anchors


Aweigh Club. We are also very grateful
to the Monroe County School District
and Superintendent Randy Acevedo in
particular for making the Harris School
property available to us during our
repairs.
Since 1983, Anchors Aweigh has pro-
vided a safe haven for meetings of
Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics
Anonymous and other 12-step groups
that individuals can attend at no cost.
We are so grateful how this commu-
nity has reached out to help support us in
our time of need.

'One Weekend Only' goes off without a hitch


EDITOR:
I am reminded of the quote "It takes a
village." This applies to both the support
and raising of children as well as the
continuation of music and the arts in the
community.
I wish to thank all the contributors for
the "One Weekend Only" fundraiser for
the Marathon Community Theatre. There
were so many that I don't have room to
mention them all, but they all have our
sincere thanks, especially since we are
not able to do what we do without the
support of the community.
I want to thank the board of directors
and the general membership of the
Marathon Community Theatre, whose
love of music and theater created a fabu-
lous show in tribute to our men and '
women in uniform.


I would also like to include a special
thank you to Anthony Green and the stu-
dents of the new culinary program at
Marathon High School. The students did
a magnificent job in preparing seven of
the dishes on the buffet. I received noth-
ing but compliments on the taste and
presentation. I think we have a great pro-
gram going and we need to as a commu-
nity support this program and keep it
working. The students are learning about
food and nutrition and that there is more
than fast food in this world.
I want to thank all those involved,
especially director Laura Hutt, music
directors Paula and Don Roberts and I
don't know where we would be without.
Loretta Geotis, our general manager.

High time for politics


both locally, nationally


'Tis the season ... for politics?
Yes, as strange as it may feel with
Halloween just ended and Thanksgiving.
-fast approaching, much of the talk these
days is about politics.
In Key West, of course, there's good rea-
son for all the talk, especially if you've
managed to catch one of the mini-debates
between mayoral candidates Morgan
McPherson and Jimmy Weekley.
Their gloves-off approach brought some
bruising this week in a match-up video-
taped in Comcast's studios.
The full debate, which was scheduled to
air Friday night on Comcast Channel 19,
also included time with candidates for the
citywide Utility Boardfrace, Charles Lee
and Ty Symroski, and the District 4 City
Commission runoff candidates,
Barry Gibson and Richard
Klitenick. -
In the Oct. 2 general elec-
tion, Gibson beat Klitenick by
a single vote, which under-


necessary 1,526 signatures to put the refer-

Another key initiative on Tuesday's bal-
lot is the Bahama Conch Community Land
Trust request for voters to approve a 99-
year land lease for 6.6 acres at the Truman
Waterfront at a cost of $1 per year.
In exchange, the trust promises to build
60 to 70 affordable housing units, a trade
school, art studios and some commercial
retail that would adjoin Bahama Village.
Voters in the Oct. 2 general election sur-
prised just about everyone with a turnout
that topped 51 percent. Let's see if the
runoff election Tuesday gets close to
matching that kind of number.

Budget talks start


Most aspects of
county spending
to get examined
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Florida Legislature has
spoken local government will
collect less in property taxes in
the coming years.
And the Monroe County
Commission will roll up its col-
lective sleeves this week to tack-
le budget cuts for 2009 even
as the 2007-08 budget is just
kicking in.
First on stage: social services.
"We've looked at each of the
services that we provide,"
County Administrator Tom Willi
said. "We're looking at what
we're legally required to do.
We're looking at what we do for
quality-of-life issues. And we're
looking at what responsibilities
we shouldn't have adopted as a
responsibility."
The County Commission
workshop starts at 10 a.m.
Wednesday at the Key Largo
Library.
Some residents worry the
cuts could affect services they
count on, such as branches of the
library. Some say they believe
the Big Pine Key and Islamorada
branches are at risk
However, "We haven't talked
about closing the libraries,"


county Community Service
Director Debbie Barcel said.
"That's not anything I recom-
mend happen because I believe
the county has a core service
responsibility and we have tcr do
our very best to provide those
services."
"There is a recommendation
to remove a position" at the
libraries, Willi said. "There's a
significant savings there, along
with reduction and standardiza-
tion of library hours. That alone
should reduce expenses in the
libraries by close to a quarter of
a million dollars."
Willi said there's no proposal
to close any branches, but did
say presentations to the commis-
sion will include a host of "what
ifs" as a way to explore cost cut-
ting.
"Right now the county is one
of the few that provides assis-
tance for shelter, utilities and
prescription drugs," Willi said.
"We need to ask whether we've
serving the public well with
these expenses, or is there anoth-
er way to attack this?"
Willi said county programs
provide these services for people
until other disability payments
kick in. He said the discount pre-
scription drug card is something
different, however, and that it
costs the county nothing. That
service will likely not come
under scrutiny.

Chair selection getting close


Griffiths wants
the discussion
a week early
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.com

The Monroe County School
Board is legally required to pick
its new- chair for the 2007-08
school year by Nov. 20. But
board members remain unclear
about when they'll discuss the
issue, and how they'll select their
new leader
At issue is Chairman Andy
Griffiths saying he won't be in
attendance at the Nov. 20 meet-
ing. He's asked fellow board
members to discuss the election a
week earlier, at a meeting Nov.
13.
Not all board members are in
favor of an early discussion.
"I've always felt that we
should stick to our agenda and
have our discussion on the 20th,
so I'm not really going to be pre-
pared to discuss it on the 13th,"
Vice Chairman Duncan
Mathewson said.
"I think that the state statute


says that we have to do it on the
third week, on the 20th, so to me
that's when we should do it. After
all, I'm new on the board and I
don't want to break tradition,"
board member John Dick said.
"I'm not going to be the one to
set precedent," board member
Steven Pribramsky said." "If my
fellow board members want to
talk about it, I'll talk about any-
thing, but I would prefer to fol-
low the rules."
According to board members,
there is no clear frontrunner for
chair.
Under a rotational system,
Mathewson, the most senior
member who hasn't held the posi-
tion, would be the likely candi-
date.
But the board stopped using a
rotational system three years ago.
In 2004, then-Chairwoman
Eileen Quinn was granted a sec-
ond term as chair after a tumul-
tuous relationship with then-
Superintendent John Padget
marked her first term.
In 2005, Anne Cohan was
elected over Griffiths, who was
next in line for the position.

Griffiths took over as chair after
Cohan resigned in July 2006, and
was elected to serve another year
as chair last November. .
Board members say they have
not agreed on a method of selec-
tion.
"I'm a great fan of how it was
done many years ago,"
Mathewson said, "and that was
rotation. I believe this is not a big
deal. I don't think who is chair is
all that special to require a secret
ballot."
"I personally think it should
go as election," Dick said.
"Rotation, that was changed a
couple years ago. I think at this
time we should continue doing
what is best for taxpayers and the
community."
"I think whoever wants to do
it, we should hear from,"
Pribramsky said. "I don't think
that just because you've been
there necessarily means you
should be the chair."
Griffiths said if asked, he'd
consider another term as chair.
"You may decide to keep the
current chair," he said. "If the
current chair is asked, he'll con-
sider doing that. If he's not asked
he'll keep his mouth shut."
Because Mathewson and
Griffiths are up for re-election in
2008, some question whether
campaigning would distract from
chair responsibilities, but some
board members say it won't influ-
ence their decision.

"The conventional wisdom
suggests that if you are in a cam-
paign for reelection that you
don't hold the gavel because the
campaign could be a distraction
from the board chair." Griffiths
said. "Also, you don't know if
there is a reelection until an oppo-
nent comes forward. So if you
assume chair and you're unop-

posed, it's a moot point."
"I would not want to make a
blanket statement that we should-
n't do that," Dick said of electing
a chair who'd be campaigning in
the same year. "That should be up
to each individual."
Board member Deborah
Walker could not be reached for
comment for this report.


Radio bill passes House


Manufactured
homes would
be equipped
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

A federal law that would put a
weather radio into all rew manu-
factured homes has cleared the
House of Representatives. Now
its supporters hope the Senate
will hop on the bandwagon.
"It passed by voice vote in the
House, which signifies it's not
controversial," said Liz Farrar, an
aide for U.S. Rep. Brad
Ellsworth of Indiana, one of the
bill's sponsors. "We're hoping
the same will be true in the
Senate."
The so-called C.J.'s Bill
would require all new manufac-
tured homes be equipped with a


0
weather radio by amending the
National Manufactured Housing
Construction and Safety
Standards Act of 1974.
Manufactured homes are
defined by the Department of
Housing and Urban Develop-
ment and Florida's Department
of Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles as homes built on a
chassis, wider than 8 feet and
transportable in one or more sec-
tions.
The bill is named for an
Indiana 2-year-old who was
killed by a tornado two years
ago. Ellsworth was sheriff in the
county when the child was killed.
"This is public-safety legisla-
tion the Senate should support
because if we prevent just one
mother from losing her son, a
$30 weather radio is not too
much to ask," he said in a state-
ment released last week.
Though the bill is aimed pri-
marily at the tornado-prone
Midwest, Keys residents could
benefit eventually.
Matt Strahan, meteorologist
in charge at the National Weather
Service in Key West, says there
are as many as 10 tornado watch-
es each year in the Keys.
"Weather radio can be looked
a[ as similar to a smoke alarm,"
he said when the legislation was
first introduced in August. "The
average lead time in a tornado is
tive to eight minutes. If you have
ismething that wakes you up, it
gives you time to get somewhere
Saife."
Not mamn ne\\ homenw in the
Ke\ s \- would come under ihe new
law, however, since most manu-
factured homes going in are
modular, meaning they do not
fall under the HUD guidelines.
Still, Strahan said it's not a
bad idea to have a weather radio
in your home no matter what
kind of homeit is.

College branches out with university


Hodges partners
with FKCC for
bachelor's degrees
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Come January, many students
won't have to escape island life
and travel'to the mainland to
advance their education.
Florida Keys Community
College has hooked up with
Hodges University, a Naples
and Fort Myers institution that
offers bachelor's degrees with
community colleges across
Florida.
"We've been talking to
FKCC for some time," said Rita
Lampus, vice president of stu-
dent enrollment at the school,
formerly called International
University. FKCC President Jill


Landesberg-Boyle "was very
instrumental she is very inno-
vative."
Hodges is cautiously easing
into the program. For this spring
semester, one degree will be
offered, a bachelor's in science
in management. Depending on
how that program goes, more
degrees could be offered in the
near future.
The model works best on
campuses that don't offer bache-
lor's degrees, Lampus said. "We
deliver a really good product."
That product includes classes
with such as Perspectives in
Management, Organizational
Behavior in the Workplace,
Human Resources Development
and Leadership for Managers.
Classes will meet once a
week for a four-hour course, 6 to
9:50 p.m., typically on


Monday. Each credit hour costs
$425, making the cost of one
full class $1,700.
According to FKCC spokes-
woman Lydia Estenoz, Hodges
is offering scholarships that will
give students $100 off a credit
hour.
Hodges is recruiting profes-
sors already at FKCC, adminis-
trators say. Hodges could, how-
ever, also hire staff from either
of its west Florida campuses if
someone is interested in moving
to the Keys.
Hodges is also on the lookout
for a full-time liaison for the
FKCC campus, someone to
coordinate the partnership.
The classes are offered in
trimesters, divided into three 15-
week terms as opposed to the
traditional semesters. Trimesters
run from January to April, May
to August and then finish in
December. Each trimester


includes three classes that run
five weeks each. And each year,
students can earn up to 36 cred-
its of the 122-hour program.
Three classes will be avail-
able for the January trimester.
Robin Gudites, director of
learning-site admissions,
describes the new initiative as
an "accelerated program design-
ed to provide students with a
well-rounded background in
management."
To enroll in the classes, one
must have completed an associ-
ate's degree or 60 credit hours
from an accredited school,
dubbed a "two-plus-two" pro-
gram.
The first portion of the pro-
gram is 36 credit hours that will
all be in classroom on the Stock
Island campus. The remaining
26 hours will be split up
between campus and online
classes and projects.


The program is designed to
fit the schedule of working peo-
ple, Gudites said, but it's very
"rigorous."
Depending on how well the
program works, the next avail-
able degree would be in interdis-
ciplinary studies, a liberal-arts
degree.
Hodges also offers degrees at
Pasco-Hernando and Edison
community colleges.
Also to be offered in spring:
The Educator Prep Institute
will be available for those seek-
ing certification to teach kinder-
garten to 12th grade. It's a 21-
credit program that cost $1,500,
though the college has 26 avail-
able scholarships.
+ FKCC students also have
an option for an associate's in
science in public administration.
Registration is available for
spring online at www.fkcc
.edu.

City candidates
in final sprint
to voting booth
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

It's almost over.
It's a sentiment repeated in
the minds of the remaining Key
West mayoral, City
Commission and Utility Board
candidates who will find out
Tuesday whether voters want
them representing their inter-
ests.
"Thank goodness," Mayor
Morgan McPherson said of
campaigning nearing its end.
"It's all of us we're all ready
for it to be over."
McPherson's opponent, for-
mer Mayor Jimmy Weekley,
says it's not about the campaign
being over, rather his possible
mayoral tenure beginning anew.
"I want to just begin my term
as mayor," Weekley said confi-
dently, adding the stress of the
election hasn't been much dif-
ferent than previous ones he's
been involved in over two
decades.
As of Friday afternoon, 731
Key Westers voted early, while
1,739 voted absentee from
among 2,515 absentee ballots
requested.
Supervisor of Elections
Harry Sawyer predicts a similar
turnout to the Oct. 2 general
election about half the
12,936 registered voters.
McPherson is still hitting the
campaign trail, pushing a plat-
form that advocates integrity

while taking various jabs at his
opponent, saying Weekley is
taking credit for affordable
housing the Housing Authority
produced.
Weekley, while planning his
last canvassing trip before
Tuesday, said he's tired of
McPherson bringing up
Sunshine Law charges that
never occurred. McPherson
maintains Weekley violated the
Sunshine Law, which restricts
elected officials from dis-
cussing legislation that may
come before them for a vote.
"He has to bring that up
because he doesn't have a lot to
bring up," Weekley said.
"You're looking at something
that happened 15 years ago," he
said of meetings over the Key
West Bight that came into ques-
tion.
"He did, in fact, violate the
Sunshine Law," McPherson
said. "He is full of [expletive],

wanting to close bars earlier
than they now do.
"I have no intention of spon-
soring any resolution or ordi-
nance or desire to see bars shut
down at 2 a.m. in the city of
Key West," Weekley wrote in
an e-mail. "This rumor, and that
is what it is, is being put forth
by my opponent in this race and
Commissioner [Mark] Rossi."
Recently McPherson mailed
out campaign literature boast-
ing of an endorsement from the
Southernmost Republican Club,
though city elections are not
partisan.
Weekley doesn't think it's
the smartest campaign move, as
there are 6,101 registered
Democrats on the island and
3,081 Republicans, according
to figures from the Supervisor
of Elections Office.
Voters will also choose
between City Commission
District 4 candidates Barry
Gibson and Richard Klitenick
and Utility Board Group 1 can-
didates Charles. Lee and Ty
Symroski.
Two referenda also grace the
ballot: One asking voters if they
want to change the city charter
to require the voters OK any
acquisition or annexation of any
real property to the city; and'
another asking voters if they
think the Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust should
be granted a 99-year lease of
6.6 acres on the Truman
Waterfront to build 60 to 70
affordable housing units, trade
schools and art studios on the
parcel.
The Key West Department of
Transportation is offering vot-
ers who display identification
and voter registration cards free
rides to their precinct on all six
city bus routes.

Neighbors appeal AIDS Help


They say project
already exceeds
density limits
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

AIDS Help Inc. was well on
its way to 'providing six addi-
tional affordable units in Seebol
place at 711 Catherine St. but
has encountered one possible
road block: an appeal from
neighbors.
Just about every neighbor, 16
total, in a near 300-foot radius
of the location has joined in
opposition to raising the num-
ber of units in the AIDS Help
apartment complex from its cur-
rent eight to 14.
The plaintiffs, called the
Catherine Street Alliance, say it
violates land-use regulations
and are unhappy with added
congestion more neighbors
would bring. They sued Oct. 26.
Monroe County Circuit
Court Judge David Audlin will
hear the case at an undeter-
mined time.
One neighbor leading the
opposition, Onnie Dickerson,
declined comment on the issue,
but his attorney, Eric Dadd,
said, "Nobody on Catherine
Street is against AIDS or AIDS
help. The only way they can


increase the density on that
property above eight units is to
call it a rest home."
That argument of semantics
came before the Planning Board
and City Commission, and both
entities passed the project as a
rest home. The Planning
Department, however, original-
ly recommended denial, stating
it didn't come into compliance
with land-use regulations and
parking requirements.
"It is what it is," Dadd said.
"If it looks like a duck, walks
like a duck, then it is a duck.
But AIDS Help is trying to say
that it isn't a duck, rather, a rest
home."
Each unit, Dadd said, should
require one rate-of-growth-
ordinance building permit.
Under ROGO, the number of
building permits issued is based
upon the hurricane evacuation
time for the Keys.
If the units are designated
rest-home units, each would
require only 0.1 of a ROGO
permit.
The complaint states that the
11,586-square-foot property
would be exceeding its permit-
ted density as a Historic
Medium Density Residential
district, which limits to 16 units
per. acre (there are 43,560
Square feet in an acre).


Under the designation of
"apartment buildings," the com-
plex is already in violation of
land development regulations
by exceeding the limited num-
ber of units by 100 percent. If
the project passes, the alliance
argues, the complex would be
300 percent over its allotted
units.
Obtaining rest-home desig-
nation, however, changes all
that.
Because clients of AIDS
Help are informedd," the desig-
nation falls under city code,
Director Robert Walker, the
commission- and Planning
Board agree. Walker has stated
at meetings that the majority of
tenants aren't able to drive,
making parking a non-issue.
They usually require visits from
an AIDS Help nurse to ensure
they receive proper medication,
as well.
When the commission
passed the project at its Sept. 4
meeting, it required a limit of
16 tenants in the 50-year deed-
restricted complex. Single ten-
ants must occupy 11 of the 14
apartments.
The eight units currently on
site are vacant and in dire need
of repair, AIDS Help represen-
tatives say.
"You will see what they pro-
posed is simply not a rest
home," Dadd said.

Why is Fishermen's Hospital HAI rate one of
the lowest in the country?
1. Fishermen's actually monitors their staff and physician's
hand washing. Over the last year, 98% of the time, staff and
physicians washed their hands before and after being in
contact with a patient.

2. Bi-lingual signs are in each patient's room encouraging the
patient to ask the health care provider if they have washed
their hands.

3. Fishermen's has a full time infection control nurse.

What can YOU do?
Washing your hands is the single
most effective way to prevent infection.

Avoid hand to face contact,
the most common way to transmit infection.

Good hygiene is the best way to avoid infection from a potentially

methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA.

Gambian rat found north


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Chances are a Gambian giant
pouch rat found dead Thursday
on Upper Matecumbe Key did
not get there on its own, Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission exotic-species coor-
dinator Scott Hardin said.
"Our conviction is that rat is
not part of a migration of the pop-
ulation; it got transported there
somehow," he said. It "could
have hitched a ride; there's no


way to tell that."
Hardin said the rat was the
first confirmed sighting of the
species in the Keys outside of
Grassy Key, even though reports
have been consistently pouring in
for three years.
"We've had a number of
reports,, but there wasn't enough
evidence to support that it was a
Gambian rat."
Gambian rats are an African
species that can grow up to nine

pounds and reportedly appeared
on Grassy Key sometime
between 1999 and 2001, when
they were released by a resident
who had been breeding them.
Hardin said workers will likely
begin placing hidden cameras and
live traps on Upper Matecumbe
within a week to ensure no other
rats are living on the island. He
said he is not overly concerned at
this point until or if more of
the animals are discovered.
"I believe we would have
heard about it by now as much
notoriety as this issue has .got-
ten," Hardin said.
Meanwhile, only two rats
have been spotted recently on
Grassy Key in the weeks follow-
ing a second round of planting
toxic bait stations on the island.
One was spotted by hidden cam-
era and the other killed on the
road, Hardin said.
He said he believe the rats'
population is scarce, but "we
can't really declare victory until
we're clear for a couple years."
Hardin said U.S. Department
of Agriculture workers have the
Matecumbe rat in possession and
will examine it for cause of death.
.He said Upper Matecumbe
residents will be contacted before
any cameras r traps are left in
their neighborhoods.

'Dropout' label misleading


New study faults
Keys schools, facts
tell otherwise
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbumie@keysreporter.com

Two of the Keys' three high
schools are labeled "dropout
factories" in a national study
by a prominent university
because of the comparatively
low percentage of seniors left
who were enrolled as fresh-
men.
Key West and Marathon
high schools fit the bill, but
district officials say the term
"dropout factory" is not only
harsh, it's inaccurate.
Many students start high
school in the Keys, but move
away with their families and
graduate somewhere else, dis-
trict Superintendent Randy
Acevedo said.
"We have a highly mobile
population here," he added.
The study was commis-
sioned by the Associated Press
and conducted by Johns
Hopkins University's Center
for Social Organization of
Schools.
It compares freshman and
senior enrollments for the
classes of 2004, 2005 and
2006. It determines a school's
"promoting power" by figuring
the percentage of freshman stu-
dents still enrolled by senior
year. Schools showing less than
60 percent promoting power
over the. three-year period are
labeled "dropout factories."
According to the study, Key

FLORIDA LIFTS
LIFTS ELEVATORS












National
-Vheel-U-.ator

West and Marathon had only 57
and 56 percent respective pro-
moting powers from 2004 to
2006, earning both schools a
place in the "dropout factory"
category.
But the term "dropout facto-
ry" implies that more than 40
percent of Key West and
Marathon students are drop-
ping out before graduation a
number in stark contrast with
Florida Department of
Education records, which list
the 2005-06 Monroe County
dropout rate as 1.5 percent.
The state measures dropout
rates by tracking individual
students from freshman year to
graduation, 'not by whether
they graduated from the same
school they started as fresh-
men.
DOE records show that
Marathon High School's
dropout rate was 3.4.percent in
2003-04 and 5.2 percent in
2004-05. Key West High
School's dropout rate was 3.1
percent in 2003-04 and 1.7 per-
cent in 2004-05.
Ironically, Coral Shores had
the highest average dropout
rate as calculated by DOE,
reaching 3.3 percent in 2003-
04 and 5.7 percent in 2004-05,
but was the only Keys high
school not labeled a "dropout
factory" in the AP-commis-
sioned study.
On the study's Web site, its
authors concede that because it
does not track individual stu-
dents, it may inaccurately pin
the "dropout factory" label on
schools where "considerably


more students transfer out than
transfer in" a category that's
an easy fit for Monroe County,
which until 2007-08 experi-
enced several consecutive
years of declining enrollment.
The Web site, however, says
that using a three-year average
protects against skewed results.
"Using a three-year average
guards against one-time
events," the Web site states. "In
any given class of students, this
could cause a large decline in
enrollments between the fresh-
man and senior year. However,
in the following year, the
reduction of students should
impact freshmen enrollments
as well and promoting power
would then measure what per-
cent of these students made it
to 12th grade."
School officials still ques-
tion the methods used to reach
the dropout factory conclusion.
"The state of Florida use to
calculate dropout rate that way
years ago," Acevedo told The
Reporter.
Acevedo said because the
method tracks only enrollment
numbers and doesn't account
for students who transfer out
and eventually graduate from
other schools, the state now
tracks individual students from
freshman year through gradua-
tion.
"I'm skeptical of the way
the study calculates," he said.
"Let's say Hurricane Andrew
happened and you had a large
influx of freshman, you'd look
really bad."

Islands hitting

Associated Press


The sights and sounds at the
Schooner Wharf bar in Key West
drip with attitude: Sunburned
tourists lounge near a marina
savoring drinks alongside locals
wearing tank tops and sandals. A
singer warbles, "I'd rather be
here, drinking a beer, than freez-
ing my a- off up north."
Different sounds emerge from
behind the bar known as one of
the last little piece of Old Key


West the sound of bulldozers
working on a 32-unit luxury gated
community. Pre-construction
prices for spacious three-bedroom
suites start at $1.87 million.
The Harbor House develop-
ment will attract an upscale clien-
tele seeking an island lifestyle.
But its exclusivity clearly upsets
some people here. Just read the
writing scrawled on a retaining
wall: "Stop the Madness."
"Money Talks." "Eat the Rich."
The Florida Keys are at a
crossroads, beset by shortages of
high-paying jobs and affordable
housing, rising property taxes and
insurance, and environmental


concerns.
Yet the move to upscale the
Keys is going full steam, a sign of
growth that's commonly experi-
enced by tourism-dependent com-
munities. Such growth is leaving
many Keys residents feeling
priced out or ignored:
"It seems like it's paradise, but
at the same time it's an economic
hardship for the residents," said
U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen,
who represents Monroe County.
"That leads to this kind of twisted,
complex relationship, sort of a
marriage in therapy ... The Keys
community and the tourists are
always in couples therapy."

read carefully to learn the terms
of their calling contract. Pay par-
ticular attention to fees charged
for early cancellation.
Consider options among var-
ious cell phone companies because
each has different policies.
Test new phones heavily in
a wide range of locations in the
first weeks after a purchase.
Nearly all of the companies allow
penalty-free changes to calling
plans or more simplified returns
during an initial grace period.
+ Remain polite but persistent
if call quality changes or other
wireless service problems
emerge. Contact the company's
customer service call center, con-
cisely describe the nature of the
problem such as a series of
disconnected calls which can
be verified by calling records.

Keys Business


Keynoter


Longtime resident: 'Now there's more of a class distinction'


CROSSROADS / From 20

Tourism is the Keys' econom-
ic engine, generating $1.7 billion
in total sales in 2006.
"Dotted with trailer parks,
hotels, campgrounds, marinas,
retail shops and homes, the Keys
attracted 2.25 million overnight
visitors in 2006, according to the
county Tourism Development
Council. Day visitors, including
Key West cruise-ship passengers,


add significantly to that total.

'Square pegs'.
The Keys have a reputation for
its tropical, laissez-faire lifestyle,
where it once was possible for
almost anyone retirees and
fishermen, hippies and lost souls
- to move here with a little
money, in search of paradise.
"This place will always be a
Mecca for the square pegs," said
Michael McCloud, the sunglass-
es-wearing bar singer at Schooner


Wharf. "This is the end of the
road."
The Keys' population and pop-
ularity increased over the years,
leading to more structures getting
built on limited land.
"Geography is the biggest
imperative in understanding who
and what we are," said developer
Pritam Singh, responsible for Key
West projects such as Truman
Annex. "It's both our attraction,
that we're islands, and a curse,
that we're islands."

When eight hurricanes struck
Florida in 2004 and 2005, Keys
visitors were asked to evacuate
seven times, resulting in lost prof-
its for hoteliers, charter fishermen
and dive operators. Hurricane
Wilma flooded homes and streets,
but business owners questioned
whether evacuations were neces-
sary for weaker storms such as
Tropical Storm Emesto in 2006.
The active seasons led to high-
er hurricane insurance rates
throughout Florida, where the
bloated real estate market cata-
pulted home prices. Skyrocketing
property taxes and higher costs of
gas, food, and rent has made life
harder for those with low- and
mid-incomes teachers, police,
firefighters, restaurant and hotel
employees, and other profession-
als and service workers that any
community requires.
The median sales price of a
single-family home was $700,000
in 2006, Monroe County statistics
show. That's nearly three times
the median sales price of an exist-
ing home in Florida in 2006,
which the Florida Association of
Realtors reported was $248,300.
"There is not enough industry
here, not enough opportunity for
well-paying jobs, relative to what
it costs to live here," said Bob
Kelly, who has managed a shoe
store, an art gallery and a rental
property in two different stints as
a Key West resident.

Population drop
These factors are likely reasons
for the population drop in Monroe
County. According to the U.S.
Census, the population in the
Keys was 74,737 in 2006, down 6
percent from 79,589 in 2000.
During that period, Florida's pop-
ulation grew 13 percent.
Patti Julien works at a clinic in
Marathon. She and dozens of oth-
ers board buses at a Wal-Mart
parking lot in Florida City, then
endure a two-hour bus ride each
way because they can't afford liv-
ing in the Keys.
Julien gets to the Wal-Mart
about midnight, taking the day's
last bus from her home south of
Miami. She then waits five hours
because there's no early bus to
Fjorida City, and she's scared
she'll miss her ride.
"It's a real problem," said
Julien, 59. "I'd move to the Keys
but I'd be paying $2,000 a month
down there for a comparable
duplex.".
There are many efforts to
improve the oualitv of life for res-


idents, including attempts in Key
West, Marathon and other areas to
add hundreds of new affordable
housing units.
The developmental stages of
places like the Keys are the subject
of the Tourism Area Life Cycle.
Scholar Richard Butler says the -
theory discusses stages of growth:
exploration, involvement, devel-
opment, consolidation and stagna-
tion. After stagnation, communi-
ties can decline or rejuvenate.
The Keys seem headed toward
consolidation, where expensive
hotels and vacation rentals
replace older motels, where a
Starbucks could replace a mom-
and-pop coffee shop generat-
ing some ill feelings in the
process. In a 2004 survey, 73 per-
cent of Key West respondents
said-development was a threat to
the city's character and culture.
Locals "get the feel that you
are losing control of your com-
munity. Locals begin to feel inef-
fective ... That's a common prob-
lem," Butler said.

Changing climate
Developers like Singh are
leading the upscaling of the Keys.
One project is Parrot Key on
North Roosevelt Boulevard, a 74-
unit resort offering multiple bed-
room units, with amenities, such
as kitchens, flat screen TVs and
iPod docking stations, for $400 to
$500 a night. The location is
where a Hampton Inn once stood,
which offered smaller rooms at
one-fifth of the price, with fewer
amenities.
Singh said it's critical for Key
West to replace its older proper-
ties with modern, sustainable
ones. Fancier vacation rentals are
necessary to provide a quality
experience in a competitive world
tourism market and manageable
profit margins despite high taxes,
insurance and water treatment
costs, he said.
"It's pretty clear the Keys is
already on its way" toward
upscaling, Singh said.
Sitting in a restaurant near
Schooner Wharf and Harbor
House, longtime Key Wester John
Mertz laments the current trends.
"When I first moved here it
was very egalitarian," Mertz said.
"Now there's more of a class dis-
tinction the obscenely rich and
their servants. It can become a
horrible thing, sort of like a
monopolistic Disney World con-
trolled by just a few that don't
really live here."

staff and volunteers.
The anniversary celebration,
slated for 4 to 7 p.m., is open to
the public at the refuge's new
administration building at
28950 Watson Blvd. off Key
Deer Boulevard on Big Pine
Key.
Event highlights are to
include a ribbon cutting cere-
mony opening the new admin-
istration building and presenta-
tions by Anne Morkill, refuge
manager of Florida Keys
National Wildlife Refuges;
Alison Higgins, chairwoman of
Friends And Volunteers Of
Refuges; and a representative
of U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen.
In addition, Morkill is to
describe the contents of a com-
memorative time capsule
refuge officials plan to bury,
and Higgins is to debut footage
from a video documentary on
the late game warden Jack
Watson, the first refuge manag-
er and a passionate protector of
the Key deer.
The National Key Deer
Refuge consists of approxi-
mately 9,200 acres of land that
includes mangrove forests,
freshwater and salt marsh wet-
lands, pine rockland forests and
tropical hardwood hammocks,
as well as more than 75,000
acres of state waters co-man-
aged to support refuge objec-
tives. Shallow nearshore waters
are included as well.
These native habitats sustain
the tiny Key deer, a subspecies


of the North American white-
tailed deer, and 21 other threat-
ened and endangered plant and
animal species. Since the
refuge was established, the Key
deer, once nearing extinction
because of over-hunting and
habitat loss, has rebounded to a
healthy population of between
600 and 700 animals.
The refuge also is a stopping
point for thousands of migrato-
ry birds each year, and a winter
home to many North American
bird species including the
roseate tern and peregrine fal-
con.
More than 90,000 visitors
explore the refuge each year,
drawn by the chance to view
the deer and other wildlife and
enjoy the pristine natural lands.
Popular attractions are the Blue
Hole, a freshwater quarry
inhabited by a diverse array of
wildlife, and two interpretive
nature trails the Jack C.
Watson Trail that winds
through pinelands into a tropi-
cal hardwood hammock, and a
wheelchair-accessible route
through pine rocklands to a
small wetland area.
For the 50th anniversary cel-
ebration, a free shuttle is to
transport attendees between the
Visitor Center at Big Pine Key
Shopping Plaza, just off U.S. 1
at mile marker 30.3 bayside,
and. the celebration site. The
shuttle is to run every 15 min-
utes from 3 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 7
p.m.
For more information,, call
the refuge at 872-0774 or 872-

Do we need more Workforce Housing?

More Economic Development?

Should our Heritage be Preserved?

SYes O No


If you said YES, then you should

VOTE YES on the TRUMAN WATERFRONT

REFERENDUM on NOVEMBER 6.


On September 18th, the Key West City Commissioners voted unanimously
to authorize a city-wide referendum to approve leasing 6.6 acres on the
Truman Annex Waterfront adjacent to Bahama Village to the Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust (BCCLT) for 99 years for $1 a year.

The BCCLT project will involve developing 60-70 affordable housing units, an
arts complex with live and work space for resident artists, small business retail
and a youth development and/or convention facility. Highlights of the project are
vibrant Bahamian and Key West color schemes, flowering tree-lined through-ways,
festive grand circle and roundabouts, colorful architecturally-appealing courtyards,
all with adequate parking for residents and visitors. Our children will even
have their own youth complex for learning and recreation!

-

,. -- .--






BCCLT has assembled an experienced team of planning professionals
that will work with island residents and other partners in the final design to
make sure it is the very best use of the land that it can be for our community.

How can you make this asset to the city a reality?
Simply vote 'YES" for the referendum on the ballot November 6th which reads:
"Shall the Naval Properties Local Redevelopment Authority of the City of Key West (LRA)
be authorized to lease real property of approximately 6.6 acres at the Truman Waterfront,
to the Bahama Conch Community Land Trust, for a period of 99 years at the rate of one
dollar ($1) per year, the final terms of which must be approved by the LRA, for uses
including approximately 60-70 affordable units, a Cultural Arts Center, small business
retail space, and a youth development and/or cultural convention center?"

Also encourage your family, friends, and neighbors to vote so that the character,
culture and heritage of the last true Key West neighborhood -- Bahama Village will be
preserved, and permanently affordable housing will be available for future generations.

Going on 90,
Belin doesn't
miss a beat
By DICK CONKLIN
L'Attitudes Contributor


He just may be the oldest
performing musician in
the Florida Keys.
Nearly every weekend, 90-
year-old Mickey Belin sings and
plays his trumpet at the Holiday
Inn Tiki Bar in Marathon, where
Michael J and Friends hold court
Friday and Saturday evenings.
He is also a frequent guest at the
Dockside's Sunday jam sessions.
The Tiki Bar draws an enthu-
siastic crowd of weekend regu-


lars who
enjoy Belin's
renditions of
music from
i the swing and
big-band eras,
as well as
some more
recent blues
BELIN and rock
numbers.
When he takes the stage, his fans
look for a space on the dock
where they can slow dance and
remember the music of their
youth.
Belin was bor Nov. 21,
1917, in New York City. He
remembers the day he got bitten
by the music bug.


"When I was 10 years old I
came upon a Salvation Army
band playing Christmas carols,"
he said. "I immediately loved the
sound of their trumpet, so I
asked my father to get me one.
"He said to me, 'Mickey,
when you took piano lessons
from a teacher, you used to hide.
If I get you this trumpet I expect
you to stay with it!' I promised
my father that I would.
"He found a comet which
is the same as a trumpet except
smaller in a pawn shop. I
started lessons and stuck to it
like glue."
Belin has performed profes-
sionally since 1934, when he
was 17 and had to depend on his
father to drive him to gigs. He
played with some of the big
bands such as the Nelson Riddle
Orchestra, and many smaller
groups. He also wrote and
arranged music for some of
them.
Eventually he started his own
group called Mickey Belin and
the Del Regis Band. They
entered an amateur swing-band
contest at the World's Fair in
1939, and took first place.
These days he plays the trum-

pet, keyboard and flugelhom. He
says his music has been influ-
enced by greats such as Harry
James,-Bunny Berrigan, Doc
Severinsen, Maynard Ferguson
and Louis Armstrong. His
favorites are ballads like
"Stardust,","Deep Purple,"
"Georgia" and "Summertime."
. "I'm not playing with any big
bands now," he says. "I'm sitting
in with some fine musicians here
in Marathon, like Michael J,
Dave Scott and others. I now
live in Marathon full-time except
for doing a little traveling.
But Belin did more than his
share of traveling back in the
big-band days. "We traveled
with big bands and did a lot of
one-nighters. It was fun. After
we took first place at the World's
Fair, the editor of Swing
Magazine offered to be our man-
ager and take us on the road."
He loves to tell stories about
his gigs on the road.
"One time we were on our
way to Georgia, driving two sta-
tion wagons at night, when the
lights failed in the lead car and
we nearly went over the side of a
mountain!"
"The next day we woke up
for breakfast and noticed a piece
of bread was walking across the
table. It turned out to be several
ants carrying the bread! We
played that gig for a week, fol-
lowing an all-girl band led by
Ina Ray Hutton."

What a parade it was


Some amuse,
some offend,
all entertain

he Fantasy Fest parade
winners have been
announced and those folks
who dreamed, designed and
crafted the fantasies that delight-
ed the judges are rejoicing.
Many of the parade entrants
design their mobile entertain-
ment so that parts of it can be
entered in the other Fantasy Fest
competitions.
The weather interfered with
the premier prize tender, the Pier
House Pretenders in Paradise
show, so that venue was not
available this year.
The Jokers/Mummers took
the judges' stand by storm with
30 South Philly men dressed in
spangly, feathered costumes
designed for New Year's Day in
Philadelphia, bouncing their tiny
umbrellas above them and danc-
ing in choreographed steps they
practice every Saturday in their
clubhouse.
Handing out umbrellas to the
nearby viewers brought the spec-
tators into'the show and little
umbrellas were bobbing every-
where.
Most of the groups had a very
entertaining minute for.the
judges and they used it well,
making for a very special revue.
Some, however, missed the
point and simply exhibited lewd
and crude behavior, and I'm
tempted to name names here.
Let's see, fun and funny or lewd
and crude which would you
rather watch? I'm going for fun

The float was intricately envi-

The float itself was rich in
jungley atmosphere and recreat-

Guinto's group, White

ing the human animal from a

has depth in wildlife experience
and an interesting point of view.

planted throughout California.
By the start of Prohibition, the
grape was the most popular and
successful variety grown in the
Golden State, though it lost pop-
ularity with east coast growers.
Zinfandel can deliver a punch
of high-alcohol, high-tannin
- power or a pinch of spicy, berry
flavors. Roses, dessert and forti-
fied wines are made from zinfan-
del grapes. Even the sweet white'
zinfandel that was enormously
popular in the 1970s and 1980s
(and by most accounts saved the

characteristics consistent with,
their appellation (the legally
defined geographic area where
particular grapes are grown). If
the winemaker hasn't driven the
wine to a super-high alcohol
content (near or higher than 15
percent) to generate "bigness,"
geography can tell you a lot
about the wine in the bottle.
Zin lovers ("zinners" if you'll
forgive the overused pun) favor
wines from the Sierra Foothills
and Lodi for their full-bodied,
rich and round flavor and aroma.
These "bigger" wines typically
have an alcohol content of 14 to
15 percent. The flavors are more
pronounced and many of these
wines are slightly jammy. But

there's less of the brutal tannic
edge that was common in the
"monster" zins of the seventies
and eighties.
More finesse and complexity
usually can be found in zins
from northern Sonoma County.
Grapes from Geyserville, Lytton
Springs, the Alexander and
Russian River Valleys, and Dry
Creek Valley produce rich zins
with layers of fruit flavors and
aromas. Often their alcohol con-
tent is at or below 14 percent so
subtleties of taste and smell.
aren't overshadowed by the alco-
hol.
Northern Sonoma zins have a
classic cherry and briar charac-
ter. The sensation of black pep-
per from the wine is notable.
Russian River Valleys zins tend
to be darker in color, with-
intense plum and boysenberry
flavors. Dry Creek zins present
more cherry and vanilla flavors
and aromas.-
Many zinfandel vines are
more than 100 years old and
winemakers like to feature a
term like "old vines" on the
label. Old vine zins tend toward
the rich and flavorful.
The Central Coast zinfandels

to lighter, more claret-style

cherry. Geographic designations
like Central Coast, Edna Valley,
Monterey, Santa Maria Valley
and Paso Robles will be found
on the labels of these wines.
Typically, Central Coast
wines have a wild berry flavor
- cranberry and raspberry -
with aromas of smoke and toast,
sage and spice.
Zinfandel is grown through-
out California and Oregon,
South America and Eastern
Europe so your choices are
wide-ranging. To the non-zinner,
the choices can be overwhelm-
ing.
Here are three groups of zin-
fandels that should help you
choose a flavor profile you like,
though some multi-bottle experi-
mentation might be required.
The Ravenswood name can
be found on good, solid table
wines as well as highly rated,
snob-appeal bottlings. The vin-
tage-dated Vintners Blend
Zinfandel, about $8 to $10 and
often sale-priced at the super-
markets, is one of the best every-
day zins you'll find for the
money. Fresh and fruity, the
wine is light-to-medium bodied
and goes well with red meat,
Bolognese-style Italian food,
cheese appetizers and cheese
doodles. It's a nice change from
beer with steak, roast beef and
ham sandwiches (better with
salty hams rather than sweet .
hams).
For a more interesting zin, try
one of Ravenswood's vineyard-
or county-designate zins. These
are made from grapes grown in
one particular vineyard or geo-
graphical area. The 2004
Dickerson in is, perhaps,
Ravenswood finest. Rich and
elegant with lavish layers of
raspberry and strawberry flavors
and aromas, topped with cedar
and eucalyptus (the vineyard is
lined with eucalyptus trees) a
true zinner's wine, about $30.
Two other vineyard-desig-
nates worth trying are the 2004
Teldeschi Dry Creek Valley,
about $25 to $30; and 2005
Napa Valley ($12 to $15) zinfan-
dels.
The Teldeschi is very fruity
and fills your mouth with hints
of sweet-jam berries, but with
enough tannin to balance the fla-
vor. The wine is a blend of zin-
fandel and small amounts of
petite syrah and carignane. The

I brief


Auditions today
for 'Reefer Madness'

The Key West Players are
holding auditions at the
Waterfront Playhouse today for
their upcoming production of
"Reefer Madness, The Musical."
Danny Weathers directs,
Penny Leto choreographs and
Michael Fauss is musical director.
Auditions are from 3 to 6
p.m. at the playhouse at Mallory
Square. Auditioners can show up
anytime between those hours to
be seen on a first- come, first-
served basis.
Six women and five men are
needed. All need to be excellent
singers with good comedic abili-
ty. Prepare a brief song that

juana can make you crazy.

Go for the Gnarly


FIVE O'CLOCK / From 32

zinfandel provides a ripe cherry-
berry character, the petite syrah
adds some pepper, spice and tan-
nins, and the carignane brings
raspberry flavors to the party.
The fruitiness is well-balanced
by acidity and ripe tannins and
the flavor lingers in your mouth.
This is a wine worth cellaring
for five to seven years.
The Napa Valley zin is more
grapey with fresh raspberry and
blackberry aromas. Ready to
drink now, the Napa adds the
aroma and sensation of peppers
to the fruit.
The Lodi (pronounced low-
dye) area of Northern California
occupies the flatlands bordering
the Sierra Foothills. It's zinfan-
del country and shelves are fill-
ing up.with zins fromiLodi.


Try any of these:
Ravenswood's 2005 Lodi ($15-
$17), Gnarly Head Old Vine
Zinfandel '05 (my "emergency"
zin always have a-bottle
around), $10-$12, M.D. Phillips
Earthquake Zinfandel '05, $18-
$20 and Seven Deadly Zins,
$12-$15, or 2005 Zynthesis Old
Vine Zinfandel, about $15.
These are big, mouth-filling
zins ripe, full-flavored and at
times a bit rough. These are zin-
ner wines.
For a more refined zin that
provides true zinfandel character
with layers of complexity (addi-
tional flavors and aromas), try
the 2005 Rosenblum Annette's
Reserve Zinfandel, around $30,
2004 Ridge York Creek and
Paso Robles, $25 to $30, 2005
Cline Bridgehead, around $25,
or 2005 Edmeades, an amazing -
- bargain-at around. $15. -

'Shark Canyon'
starts production
mid-November
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbumie@keysreporter.com

A Key Largo film company
is seeking local talent for
the cast and crew of its
upcoming movie.
Coral Reef Productions, an
independent film company, will
start filming "Shark Canyon,"
the first in a trilogy of movies,
Nov. 15.
The company's owner,
George Alfano, said he's looking
for a full crew of local camera,
lighting and sound people, as
well as actors and actresses, who
are interested in working on all
three films.
"We're seriously looking for
local participants," Alfano said.
"I know the talent's here, it's just
a matter of getting the word out."
Keys locals interested partici-
pating in "Shark Canyon" can
send a resume to coralreefprod@
hotmail.com.

, describes "Shark Canyon" as a
"fast-paced nautical adventure
set against the colorfuland pic-.
turesque backdrop of the Florida
Keys."
Alfano says it's a "positive
message movie," pitting a for-
mer Navy Seal turned Keys dive
captain against a terrorist plot to
destroy the United States.
Coral Reef Productions fin-
ished filming its first movie,
"Shining Water," about two
months ago. The film is in post-
production in Los Angeles and
will run in film festivals for
about six months, where Alfano
says he hopes a distributor will
pick it up.
According to Alfano, Coral
Reef Productions partnered with
London-based Jaffa Films to
produce "Shining Water," and
"Shark Canyon" will be its first
solo venture.
"That's why I'm very anxious
about developing this local cast
and crew that I can go to every
year," Alfano said.
Alfano, a heart-transplant
recipient, said he plans to give
some profits from "Shark
Canyon" back to the people who
helped him.
"Three years ago, some per-
son I'll never know donated a
heart," he said. "I had three or


four weeks to live, now I'm back
in the game. It's incredible."
Alfano said he's talking with
Mariners Hospital in Tavernier
and Jackson Memorial Hospital
in Miami, where he received his
heart transplant, about schedul-
ing premieres to benefit each
hospital.
"We're trying to do some-
thing to give back to the com-
munity," he said.

Party approaches


BELIN / From 30

Belin lived most of his life
in Long Branch, N.J., a
seashore resort. One day he
met a retired captain who rec-
ommended the Keys as a place
to vacation.
"Two weeks later my wife
and I went there on a vacation.
We fished on the Marathon
Lady and had the time of our
lives. We were smitten."
"One night we heard a four-
piece band playing at the
Rutgers restaurant on Key
Colony Beach. Since I always
kept my horn in the trunk of
my car, I introduced myself to
the band's leader, a guy named
Ray Beaumont, and asked if I
could sit in. He said, 'Go get
yofir horn,' and that I did.
"We played together for
many years. I also played by
the Sombrero Resort pool with
a fine guitarist by the name of
Turk Cory. I also had a small
combo that played places like
the Marathon Yacht Club, the
Silverado, Amy's Landing,
Hawk's Cay, the Village Cafe,
American Legion hall, DAV
and many private parties."
Belin is a World War II vet,
has been a life member of the
American Legion for 61 years,
and is an honorary vice com-
mander and life member of the
Disabled American Veterans.
But he is most proud of his
four children, seven grandchil-
dren, and eight great grandchil-
dren, and loves to recite their
accomplishments.


"My grandson Justin got his
master's at Yale and is now in
the Navy's medical school, a
member of the Medical Honor
Society.
"My granddaughter Ashley
is a law-school student, cur-
rently serving on a tribunal in
Tanzania, Africa.
"My grandson Michael
majored in music at the
University of Southern
California. He is a trumpet
player, arranger, and a studio
musician. I would rate him as
one of the great trumpeters of
our times. He has the range of
the late Maynard Ferguson, a
double high C."
Belin and his wife Shirley
are planning a big party at the
American Legion in Marathon
to celebrate his 90th birthday
and her 75th. "I intend to invite
lots of friends and musicians
whom I have known for many
years," he says.
Regarding his future, he
says, "I don't plan my career
anymore, after all I'm turning
90 this year! I will keep play-
ing my trumpet, a labor of
love, for as long as I can. I
love to play for people and
appreciate the recognition I
get."
That includes gigs with
Michael J and Friends Friday
and Saturday evenings at the
Holiday Inn in Marathon.
Belin can be reached at
mickeybelin@netzero.net or on
his cell, 743-4827.

Dick Conklin can be
reached at conch@keysy.com.

resident and noted restaurateur
will sell something that can't be
found on a menu hypnotism
and mental magic.
Henry Rosenthal, former
owner of the Whale Harbor Inn
and Green Turtle Inn and past
president of the Islamorada
Chamber of Commerce, will
perform as Bastille at "Mental
Epic: An Evening of Fun and
Fascination" at the Coral Shores
Center for the Performing Arts
at 8 p.m. Nov. 9.
Rosenthal will perform with


his partner, Kaya, in a show
that's taken the pair around the
world since they teamed two
years ago at the Riviera Hotel
and Casino in Las Vegas.
"It's a two-hour show,"
Rosenthal said, "It's mentalism
and hypnosis. Mentalism is the
ability to perceive or project a
thought to and from someone. I
guess you could say we read peo-
ple's minds, but we do it in a way
that's entertaining. It's not a-magic
show, but it is a production "
Rosenthal is no stranger to
the stage. He said he's been per-
forming in magic and talent
shows for about 25 years.
"As a passenger on cruise
ships, I would do the passenger
talent show, and that's pretty
much where I started," he said.
"In the restaurant business I used
to do some magic behind the bar."
He's since performed in 22

the Berlin Wall came down in

"We were touring through
Germany and Italy," he said of
the circumstances surrounding
the historical performance. "The
head of German television was
our escort and guide and it just
sort of fell in place. It was part of
what we were doing at that time."
Rosenthal said Kaya has
years of experience in film, tele-
vision and theater.
"She's an accomplished per-

of Kaya. "She traveled in road

Keys product
well on her way
to NCAA tourney
Keynoter Staff

Former Coral Shores High
School swimmer Mhyria
Miller owns two Florida high-
school championships from
2005.
Now the University of
Georgia junior owns a victory
over the Universiit of Florida.
Miller's first-place finishing
the 200-meter breaststroke
scored nine team points Oct.
25 to help' gi\e the Lady
Bulldogs a 148-96 points win
over the Lady Gators in a dual
meet at Athens.
Her time of 2 minutes,
36.65 seconds also qualified
Miller for high entry consider-
ation--at the NCAA -tourna-
ment.
The Bulldogs dominated
the breaststroke against UF,
also taking second and third
place. Florida's first finisher
in the 'breaststroke finished
fourth.
Miller also swam the


;ia


breaststroke leg for the
Georgia B squad in the 200
medley relay race, which fin-
ished second behind the
Georgia A medley team..
Ou r
women were
very good
throughout,
coach Jack
Bauerle said
after the
Florida meet.
"This year's
MILLER teams going
to keep com-
ing after you and be tough
because of the depth." I
Miller, who was home-
schooled on Big Pine Key,
won the state prep Class A
breaststroke and individual
medley titles two years ago.
As a Georgia sophomore,
she took third in the 200-
meter breast at the SEC cham-
pionships last year and eighth
in the 100 breast.
Advancing to the NCAA
national meet, she took 22nd
in the 200 and 33rd in the 100.

-coach Eddie Reese. vho's also
the coach of the 2008 U.S.
Men's Olympic Swim team.
"It was pretty cool meeting
him," Knight said. "He said I
could be on the [Texas] team."
Knight's father Tim said,
"[Reese] flew in to see Luke.
When he came out on the
deck, everyone swarmed
around him. He's like the
Vince Lombardi .of.. swim-
ming."
Luke Knight, who has a 3.8
grade point average, expects
to visit Texas soon. He has
already visited UNLV and
Rollins College, but it could
be weeks before he decides on
a college.


At 6 feet 3 and 200 pounds,
Knight is one of the most
heavily recruited swimmers in
the country by top' 20 teains,
his father said.
"They. want him for his
potential, not his [current]
speed," Tim Knight said.
"Other coaches say he's the
most physically strong and
best-built senior they've seen.
Though he's not as polished as
some of the prep-school
swimmers, he's considered a
diamond in the rough.' -

development activities.

Copies of the proposed amendments are available at the Planning Department offices in Marathon and Plantation Key
during normal business hours. Pursuant to Florida Statute 286.0105, the County hereby advises the public that: if a person
decides to appeal any decision made by this Commission with respect to any matter considered at its meeting or its
hearing, they must ensure that the verbatim record of the proceeding is made. which record includes the testimony and
evidence upon which the appeal is based. Pursuant to the Board of County Commissioners' Resolution #131-1992, it a

Powerboat titles


on the line in Keys


Racers return


to Key West
starting Sunday
Key West plays hosting
starting Sunday to the 27th
Super Boat World
Championships.
It kicks off with a 4 p.m.
parade of race boats down
Duval Street and continues
through the week with races
Nov. 7, 9 and 11. In between is
an array of social events and
opportunities to mingle with
racers and their crews in the
dry pits at the Truman-Annex
waterfront at the end of
Southard Street.
Race Director John
Carbonell, president of Super
Boat International Productions,
one of the event's sanctioning
bodies, said he expects more
than 60 boats in various classes
to compete.
For John Tomlinson, the vet-
eran multiple-time world-
champion throttle man from


Miami, the championship is at
the top of his list for offshore
powerboat racing.
"Key West always has the
hype," Tomlinson said. "It can
be flat. It can be rough. It is
always challenging. If you can
get through three races, it's a
rewarding way to end the year."
Tomlinson said he and
owner/driver David Scott of
Edwardsville, Ill., plan to be in
Key West with a new 50-foot
boat. The Budweiser Select is
equipped with two 1,500-hp
engines and, according to
Tomlinson, can attain speeds
approaching 180 mph.
In addition to prime viewing
from the grandstand areas of
Truman Annex, several Key
West harbor-front hotels stage
race day specials combining
lunch and refreshments with
excellent viewing venues.
More details, including a
schedule of events, are avail-
able on the Super Boat Web site
at www.superboat.com.

off her previous personal best.
Both the boys' and girls'
teams performed well at the
meet, with each qualifying to
compete in the Nov. 10
regional meet at the
Westminster Academy campus
in Fort Lauderdale. The girls
tied for third place, while the

23:25, followed by Marcy
Brandjes (23:57), Emily

Platt (24:18).
Emily Brandjes had consis-
tently been finishing second
for Marathon behind Valerdi,
but sustained an injury while
out on the course.
* "She kind of: twisted her


ankle running, that's why she
was having an off day," Urban
said.
J.J. Cadwell and Tommy
Dodamead were neck-and-
neck again for the Dolphins,
with Cadwell finishing 10 sec-
onds ahead of Dodamead in
20:43.

and the improvement it's
shown throughout the year.
"I'm really happy, this is
the first time that Marathon

now we have both teams
going," she said.

Sailors visit


Upper Keys


Two-time A-Cat world
champion Peter Melvin is
among 100 world-class interna-
tional competitors and Olympic
sailors preparing to race
November 8'-16 in the 2007
Ronstan A-Clasp Catamaran
World Championship head-
quartered at Islamorada's
Islander Resort, mile marker
82.1 oceanside.
Races are scheduled Nov. 12
to 16 preceded by equipment
inspection and trial races start-
ing Friday, Nov.,9.
Two previous A-Class cata-
maran races were held in
January 2007, and a third.annu-
al event is set for January 2008.
However, event officials chose
November in ,Islamorada for
the world championship for the
perfect weather conditions.
In addition to daily races,
opening and closing cere-
monies at the Islander are to 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
participants are expected to
share in the festivities with
something from their home-
land.
Australian Glenn Ashby
plans to defend his 2006 title.
He is a multiple world champi-
on in the class and is regarded
as a favorite to medal in the
2008 Tornado Olympic event in
Qingdao, China.
At the top of the list of U.S.
competitors is three-time North
American champion Lars
Guck, who has won every race
in the last two North American
championships. Melvin, the
1997 'and 2005 A-Class world
champion, is another favorite in
the sport because of his speed
and consistency.

A rebuilding year for Key West


SOCCER / From 40

only returning starter. Briones,
who had 10 goals last season,
and sophomore midfielder
Renne Disrud-Joris, who is
strong and fast, are expected to
lead the team in scoring.
"Renne will create chances
with his athleticism, and our
success will ride on his ability
to finish the chances he can cre-
ate on his own," Clifford said.
The Conchs' inexperience
extends to the keeper position
that last season was occupied
by Robbie Hogan. Starting in
goal will be Jeff Wright, a
freshman from Big Pine Key
who, Clifford said, is athletic
and has good hands.
Clifford's immediate goal is
to make the team competitive
this season, laying the founda-
tion for a strong team the fol-
lowing two years. "We will
grow quickly," he said.
Last season's team, most
notably with its two memorable
regional victories before large


raucous Tommy Roberts
Memorial Stadium crowds,
spawned a new interest in Key
West youth soccer, and now
droves of youngsters have
caught the fever.
"We have 15 sophomores
and 22 freshman [in the pro-
gram] and a consistent Key
West Soccer Club team under
[coach] Alex Yanowicz,"
Clifford said. "This is a direct
result of last year's success.
"If more kids would look to


work with Alex, Scott Paul and _
other experienced coaches year
round, Key West, instead of a
place where the kids run loose
on the field once a week in
AYSO, would develop very
quickly into a soccer power
every year."
"Now," he went on, "our_..
kids are coming into high
school unprepared for the next
level they will need to compete
at to stay even with other
schools."

fourteen days of receipt
of notice shall constitute
a waiver of that person's
right to request an admin-
istrative determination
(hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes. Any
subsequent intervention
(in a proceeding initiated
by another party) will be
only at the discretion of
the presiding officer upon
the filing of a motion in
compliance with Rule
28-106.205, Florida Ad-
ministrative Code.

A petition that disputes
the material facts on
which the Department's
action.is based must con-
tain the following infor-
mation:

(a) The name, address,
and telephone number of
each petitioner; the
name, address, and tele-
phone number of thepeti-
tioner's representative, if
any; the Department per-
mit identification number
and the county in which
thesubject matter or ac-
tivity is located;
(b) A statement of how
and when each petitioner
received notice of the De-
partment action;
(c) A statement of how
each petitioner's sub-
stantial interests are af-
fected by the Department
action;
(d) A statement of all dis-
puted issues of material
fact. If there are none, the
petition must so indicate;
(e) A statement of facts
that the petitioner con-
tends warrant reversal or.
modification of the De-

(f) A concise statement of
the ultimate facts alleged,
as well as the rules and
statutes which entitle the
petitioner torelief; and
(g) A statement of the re-
lief sought by the petition-
er, stating precisely the
action that the petitioner
wants theDepartment to
take.

Because the administra-
tive hearing process is
designed toformulate fi-
nal agency action, the fil-
ing of a petition means
that the Department's fi-
nal action may be differ-
ent from the position tak-
en by it in this notice. Per-
sons whose substantial
interests will be affected
by any such final decision
of the Department have
the right to petition to be-
come a partyto the pro-
ceeding, in accordance
with the requirements set
forth above.

In addition to requesting
an administrative hear-
ing. any petitioner may

elect to pursue media-
tion. The election may be
accomplished byfiling
with the Department a
mediation agreement
with all parties to the pro-
ceeding (i.e., the appli-
cant, the Department,
and any person who has
filed a timely and suffi-
cient petition for a hear-
ing ). The agreement
must contain all the infor-
mation required by rule
28-106.404, Florida Ad-
ministrative Code. The
agreement must be re-
ceived by the clerk in the
Office of General Council
of the Department at
3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station
35, Tallahasee, FL
32399-3000, within ten
days afterthe deadline
forfiling a petition, as set
forth above. Choosing
mediation will not ad-
versely affect the right to
a hearing if mediation
does not result in a settle-
ment.

As provided in Section
120.573, Florida
Statutes, the timely
agreement of all aprties
to mediate will toll the
time limitations imposed
by Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes,
for holding an administra-
tive hearing and issuing a
final order. Unless other-
wise agreed by the part-
ies, the mediation must
be concluded within sixty
days of the execution of
the agreement. If media-
tion results in settlement
of the administrative dis-
pute, the Department
must enter a final order
incorporating the agree-
ment of the parties. Per-
sons seeking to protect
their substantial interests
that would be affected by
such a modified final de-
cision mustfile their peti-
tions within fourteen days
of receipt of this notice, or
they shall be deemed to
have waived their right to
a proceeding under Sec-
tions 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes.
If mediation terminates
without settlement of the
dispute, the Department
shall notify all parties in
writing that the adminis-
trative hearing processes
under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida
Statutes, remain avail-
able for disposition of the
dispute, and the notice
will specify the deadlines
that then will apply for
challenging the agency
action and electing reme-
dies under those two
statutes.
