Spehar apparently
the third vote to
fire administrator
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

It appears it's time for Monroe
County Administrator Tom Willi
to update his resume. But a
$200,000-plus severance pack-
age could help ease the blow.
County, Commissioner Dixie
Spehar has called a special meet-
ing to fire Willi and her move
could ensure a majority vote to
end his contract, which would be
up for renewal next summer, early.
Commissioners -George
Neugent and Sylvia Murphy have
said since February they want


Willi gone. But a special meeting
that month to fire him ended with
him surviving on a 3-2 vote.
Murphy has already given
thought to who would serve as
interim administrator if he's let
go in December.
"My idea would be a trio," she
said. Airports Director "Peter
Horton, [County Clerk] Danny
Kolhage and [Deputy Admin-
istrator] Debbie Frederick. With
those three, we wouldn't even
notice a teeny bump in the road
and everyone would breathe a big
sigh of relief."
The commission will convene
at 9 a.m. Dec. 5 at the Harvey
government Center in Key West

Planners delay mitigation


Proposal would
require $98,000
to build home
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Planning
Commission on Tuesday delayed
until Dec. 5 a vote on a proposal
that could add close to $100,000
to the cost of building a home on
Big Pine or No Name keys. It
also voted unanimously to cancel
a Nov. 28 workshop on the issue.
Meeting Tuesday in Key
Largo, the commission consid-
ered a proposal designed to pro-
vide a strategy for environmental
mitigation on the two Lower
Keys islands as part of a habitat
conservation plan.
The islands are under a tempo-
rary 60-day moratorium to allow
planners time to create a manda-
tory mitigation ordinance.
Staffers had suggested a six-
month freeze, but the County
Commission shortened that to
two months during its Nov. 14
meeting in Key Largo.
The habitat conservation plan
limits growth on Big Pine and No
Name to protect endangered Key


deer. It allows for just eight new
market-rate and two new afford-
able rate homes annually the next
20 years. In addition, it severely
limits commercial space and
redevelopment. The mitigation
ordinance would set parameters
for that new construction.
Under the proposal, those
building new homes would have
to pay $98,000 for the county to
purchase environmentally sensi-
tive land for preservation.
Commercial space would be
charged $698 per square foot.
"This ordinance is full of
problems," said Commission
Chairman Jim Cameron, suggest-
ing the commission delay a deci-
sion until staff could rewrite the
proposal
According to county Growth
Management Director Andrew
Trivette, the ordinance actually
offers potential. home builders
two options: Pay the mitigation
fees outright or purchase vacant
land for conservation and donate
it to the county.
The county has been using
publicly owned land to offset the
mitigation needs of developers on
Big Pine the past year, and staff
warned that the so-called mitiga-


tion bank could run dry, leaving
the county where it might have to
pay for mitigation on some ongo-
ing projects, including a possible
$5 million for the Mariner's
Community Park.
"There is still.some mitigation
land left," Trivette told the com-
mission. "However, if we contin-
ue to issue permits ... we could
reach that point where develop-
ment is stopped until that bank is
increased."
In the meantime, there's a
chance the Planning Commission
will ask the County Commission
to consider changing the HCP. But
reopening the six-year process,
Trivette said, could shut down all
new building on the islands.
"I have tremendous apprehen-
sion throwing away a product
that took so long to produce and
involved so many players," he
said. "At the same time I'm hear-
ing some say the science is
flawed."
He recommended the com-
mission focus on the mitigation
ordinance in the short term, and
consider proposals to change the
HCP after the mitigation ordi-
.nance is adopted.
The next Planning Commission
meeting is at 10 a.m. Dec. 5 at the
Marathon Government Center.


'It's a multitude of things'


WILL / From 1

to consider Willi's fate.
Spehar tried to add a last-
minute proposal to fire Willi
without cause to last week's
County Commission meeting.
However, county rules required a
four-fifths vote to add the agenda
item, which didn't happen.
Spehar stunned local pundits
by calling for the special meeting
on Monday.
"It's a multitude of things,"
she said of her reasons for want-
ing to fire him. "Last year I prom-
ised people that I would give him
another chance. Since'then, I met
with a whole contingency of peo-
ple; it just hasn't changed."
Murphy originally called for
Willi's resignation in January,
spurring the commission to hold
that special February meeting to
discuss his possible ouster. The
meeting drew a contingent of
supporters as well as detractors.
'Mayor Sonny McCoy and


Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro have been staunch Willi
supporters and it's likely they
will not vote for the firing.
"I have great concerns if we
lose our administrator," Di
Gennaro said. "The catch-up
would be very difficult. I feel
Tom has made change, he's made
some hard decisions, and he's
going to be criticized for making
those tough decisions.
"But my interest is doing the
right thing for the county," he
said. "If that does happen, I will
go along with the decision of the
commission. I will accept the
decision of the majority."
Willi's contract allows for
nine months of severance pay,
plus benefits. County Attorney
Suzanne Hutton said she's still
trying to figure out the actual
payoff, but says it ranges between
$215,000 and $265,000.
Willi replaced Jim Roberts as
administrator in 2004 after
Roberts retired following a
decade in the job.


Willi, then the town adminis-
trator of Davie in Broward
County, was selected in a second
search after the initial choice,
David Bullock from Sarasota,
accepted the job, then withdrew
when the compensation package
did not meet his expectations.
Willi was hired in August 2004
and started work in November. He
was selected by a unanimous vote.
However two commissioners,
Neugent and then-Commissioner
David Rice, were absent for the
vote. Also sitting on the commis-
sion then were Murray Nelson,
Spehar and McCoy.
Islamorada Village Manager
Gary Word is voluntarily leaving
.his job in December and
Marathon City Manager Mike
Puto has been under the gun by
some City Council members for
his performance, so those are two
Keys residents with local city-
manager experience who could
be possible applicants.
Willi did not return calls for
comment.

Highway Patrol IDs
dead motorcyclist

A motorcycle operator killed
in a Nov. 10 crash on the
Channel 2 Bridge has been iden-
tified as a Cudjoe Key resident,
according to the Florida
Highway Patrol.
Daniel L. Hendren, 44, listed
addresses on Cudjoe Key and in
Delray Beach, FHP Sgt. Robert
Graf said.
Hendren was killed around
10 p.m. Nov. 10 as he attempted
to pass northbound traffic on the
two-lane bridge, according to an
initial accident report. His 2006
Yamaha motorcycle did not
return to the northbound lane
and ran into a southbound pick-
up truck driven by a Marathon
woman.
Hendren was thrown off the
bridge. His body was found
Nov. 14 in Florida Bay, about
two miles north of the bridge.
His apparently was the 18th
traffic fatality south of Florida
City this year.

Marathon man
jailed for trafficking

A Marathon man was jailed
Monday on charges of traffick-
ing in cocaine from a Middle
Keys motel room.
Deputy Becky Herrin said
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
detectives received information
that Juan Long, 32, was dealing
cocaine from the hotel. They
arranged to rent the room next to
him and saw several people
coming and going from the
room, she said. At that point, an
undercover operative made con-
tact, asking to purchase cocaine.
Herrin said Long brought out
some of the drug and told the
operative to try some. At that
point, Long was arrested.
She said a search of the room
turned up 50 crack rocks in the
bathroom and an ounce of pow-
dered cocaine in a bathroom
receptacle, as well as smaller
amounts in other locations for a
total of 38 grams.

Green Team takes off in Middle Keys


It's trying to
get Marathon
to reduce use
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon Green Team,
a volunteer group dedicated to
seeing carbon emissions in
Marathon -reduced to below
1990 levels, has begun work-
ing toward its mission.
The Green Team, which
met for the first time Friday,
formed following the city,
along with 600 others across
the country, signing the U.S.
Mayors' Climate Protection
Agreement. The City Council
unanimously passed it April
24.
Green Team Chairman
Michael Welber said the next
step was to join the
International Council for
Local Environmental
Initiatives.
According to that group's
Web site, www.iclei.org, it
provides "experienced staff,
software tools, and a wide


variety of programs and tech-
nical assistance to help local
governments reduce green-
house /gas emissions in an
effective, efficient manner."
"It enables cities to enter
information about what their
energy usage is and how they
want to reduce it and provides
some suggestions about what
to do," Welber said. "The first
thing we're going to do is
audit how much energy is
being used."
The city itself has also got-
ten involved and Welber said
data such as water consump-
tion, car miles driven each
year, gas mileage and paper
consumption will be provided
within a month to be analyzed.
"We're gathering the data
and that can give us our base-
line so we can set a goal to
improve our carbon footprint.
It can be a myriad of things;
[ICLEI] will identify where
our strong points and weak
points are," city Community
Services Director Susie
Thomas said.
Thomas said the informa-


tion would be gathered imme-
diately, as the city begins
budget preparations. in April
each year.
"Our goal is ... if it had
some budgetary impact, we
would be prepared for it," she
said.
Welber said Councilman
Chris Bull has "promised to go
to bat for us with the council"
and he has already reached out


to newly selected Mayor Pete
Worthington.
"The next step is to evalu-
ate the information and start to
think about what the city can
do to reduce their usage. You
don't jump in and start doing
things, you do the research
and figure out what needs to
be done," Welber said.
The effort is being support-
ed by many local organiza-


tions, including Green Living
and Energy Education
(GLEE), whose president,
Allison Higgins, is on the
Green Team.
"Once we get rolling, we'll
make some changes happen,"
Welber said.

do to help.

residential, and that's terrible,"
Barroso said. "We're going to
target commercial recycling
because we can identify with
other business owners, and
we're going to make it easy and
inexpensive, or even free, if we
can."
Within the next 30 days,
they plan to pilot their program
which they say will be free
to participating businesses for
the first two months. And they
have the green light from the
city, according to Public Works
Manager R.B. Havens.
"Florida state law allows for
open competition for commer-
cial recycling," Havens said.
"But that's only for commercial
recycling not residential
recycling or solid waste."
Key West contracts with
Waste Management for residen-
tial and commercial solid waste
and recycling pick-up and dis-
posal. Commercial customers
pay monthly recycling collec-
tion fees based upon the size of
their recycling containers and
the number of times per week
their recyclables are collected.
For example, Havens said a
business with one 96-gallon
container collected once each
week pays $31. Atthe opposite
end of the pricing continuum, a
business with eight 96-gallon
containers picked up every day
would pay approximately
$1,700.
Barroso said he and his
brother have teamed with Big
Apple Recycling in North
Miami Beach to develop plans
for a pilot project to assess
whether they can recycle more
and charge less than Waste
Management.
Barroso said Big Apple
Recycling has pledged to send
one recycling truck and some
bins to Key West for two


months at no charge. After that
trial period, the Barrosos and
Big Apple will be able to calcu-
late how much they would have
to charge customers to continue
the program.
"We would love for it to be
free for them to recycle. That's
the goal," Barroso said.
Toward that end, Barroso
said he and his brother have
contacted state Rep. Ron
Saunders about the possibility
of securing grants for the proj-
ect, with the idea of using the
funds as incentives for busi-
nesses to recycle.
Saunders said he strongly
supports any effort to increase
recycling rates throughout the
Keys.
"We have an embarrassingly
low recycling rate down here
and I'd be open to trying to get
state grant money if we can,"
Saunders said. "But in this case,
obviously a lot of details have
to be hammered out first.
"There may be some money
out there but the city may have
to be the applicant. Until we get
a clear picture of exactly what
[the Barrosos] are proposing, I
can't say exactly what the
approach to funding could be,
but I personally support their
efforts."
Regardless of how the proj-
ect will be funded, Barroso said
he is confident his family can
change the way Key West recy-
cles.
"We've got a new commis-
sioner in our district and there
are others in place in city gov-
ernment who appear to be
excited about our idea,"
Barroso said. "We're bringing
our family name and our repu-
tation to the issue, because
we've just got to do something
about this."

Feds deny


aquarium funds


Reason includes
Keys fish used
for restocking
Associated Press

In what some see as another
bureaucratic absurdity after
Hurricane Katrina, the U.S. gov-
ernemnt is refusing to pick up the
cost of restocking New Orleans'
aquarium because of how the
new fish were obtained: straight
from the sea.
The Fedeal Emergency
Management Agency would have
been willing to pay more than
$600,000 or the fish if they had
been bought from commercial
suppliers.
But the agency is balking
because the Audubon Aquarium
of the Americas went out and
replaced the dead fish the old
fashioned way, with hooks and
nets. That expedition saved the
taxpayers half a million dollars
but did not comply with FEMA
regulations.
"You get to the point where
the red tape has so overwhelmed
the process that there's not a lot
you can do to actually be effec-
tive," Warren Eller, associate
director of the Stephenson
Disaster Management Institute at
Louisiana State University, said
of FEMA's actions.
Katrina knocked out power to
the tourist attraction at the edge
of the French Quarter in August
2005, and the staff returned four
days later to find sharks, tropical
fish, jellyfish and thousands of
other creatures dead in their
tanks.
Aquarium officials wanted to
reopen the place quickly. So even
before the $616,000 commitment
from FEMA came through, they
sent a team on an expedition to
the Florida Keys, Gulf of Mexico
and Bahamas, where they caught
1,681 fish for $99,766.
Despite the clear savings, the
dispute has dragged on for 17
months.
"FEMA does not consider it
reasonable when an applicant
takes excursions to collect speci-
mens," FEMA quality control
manager Barb Schweda wrote in
a 2006 e-mail. "They must be
obtained through a reputable


sources where, again, the item is
commercially available."
FEMA's refusal to reimburse
the aquarium is grounded in the
Stafford Act, the federal law gov-
erning disaster aid that has been
criticized as inadequate for
Katrina recovery.. The Stafford
Act says facilities can only be
returned to their pre-disaster con-
dition, not improved.
Under those rules, the aquari-
um would have to buy fish of the
approximate age and size of the
lost specimens.
State experts and others
counter that acquiring thousands
of duplicates in the marketplace
is nearly impossible, and a waste
of public money.
"You can go out in the com-
mercial market and buy a clown-
fish. You can also go out and cap-
ture it. And if you're capturing
fish to fill an aquarium, it is much
more cost-effective. Talk about
being good stewards of the tax-
payer dollar," said Rick
Patterson, a specialist with James
Lee Witt Associates, a firm that
mediates Louisiana's disputes
with FEMA. The firm is led by
Witt, FEMA director during the
Clinton administration.
About a dozen aquarium
staffers went fishing, snorkeling
and scuba diving between
January and May 2006, catching
tiny highhat fish, yellowtail snap-
per, jackfish and others. The
-staffers worked 12-hour days but
put in for only eight hours a day,
according to invoices, The catch
Swas placed in a 1,000-gallon tank
fitted to a flatbed trailer for the
trip to New Orleans.
Most of the fish were caught
in Florida waters for one-fifth the
price charged by online vendors
and specialty stores suppliers
FEMA recommended using.
"That is exactly the most pru-
dent way to do it," Steve Feldman,
spokesman for the Association of
Zoos and Aquariums, said of the
fishing trip.
The fish were put on display
in mid-2006 and have proved to
be healthy. But the aquarium had
to lay off 80 percent of its Work-
ers after Katrina and attendance
is only 70 percent of what it was
before the storm, spokeswoman
Melissa Lee said.


State may offer extension


SEWERS / From I

prove to the state and U.S.
Environmental Protection
Agency that the county is mak-
ing progress with constructing
sewer systems.
"The reasonable-assurance
process will show the county is
doing its part in fixing water
quality," McClellan said.
The state set a deadline of
2010 to upgrade sewers, but
Wood says that only requires
some communities, depending
on their size, to only reach the
"best available technology."
The goal of Monroe
County's master wastewater
plan is to have all systems at
advanced treatment by 2010.
"We'll do AWT everywhere
by 2015," Wood said. "It's ludi-
crous to spend $120 million to
reach [best available technolo-
gy], then turn around and spend
another $120 million to develop
another system."
She said that according to
state law, those regions of the
Keys that are not yet funded for
sewer upgrades would have to
be brought up to the best avail-
able technology.
That means many homeown-
ers would be expected to
upgrade to on-site systems since
central systems are not yet in.
That- also means they would

said. "But the law's default
would be to create additional on

SThat could result in more
than 6,000 individual systems, a
scenario the county was looking
at with trepidation several years
ago. Wood said just monitoring
those systems would be daunt-
ing.

Keys Opinion


Ask for money, not

deadline extension

We remain skeptical about the news trickling out from the last
County Commission meeting that the 2010 deadline to upgrade
sewage treatment in the Keys may be "negotiable."
There was some alarm at the Key Largo meeting when a con-
sultant for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection
spoke about a path to compliance that could include "reasonable
assurances" everything that can be done is being done.
Talk like that gives state Rep. Ron Saunders a bad case of the
hives.
He told our Key West bureau chief, Alyson Crean, that any talk
of moving that 2010 deadline is "premature," and he noted -
pointedly that any extension simply works to reward those
"who dragged their feet."
Talk to property owners paying taxes in the Key Largo
Wastewater Treatment District service area, or their counterparts
in Islamorada or Marathon or Layton.
Taxpayers there have already bit the bullet and are paying to
clean up sewage to meet the state's mandated advanced waste-
water standards.
Big Coppitt and Duck keys are expected to meet the 2010 stan-
dards with their new and upgraded sewer systems now under
way.
And it's costing Keys property owners plenty to adhere to the
state mandate, so the focus should more properly be on finding
state and federal partners with money to help, not asking for fur-
ther delays.
The alternative, outlined by the county wastewater projects
manager, is for a lot of small package plants that can meet the
tougher standards.
But that opens up an entirely new can of worms over on-site
inspections and disposal of solid wastes produced by these mini-
plants. Expect to hear lots more about this in the coming months.
For now, we agree with Saunders' take on all this: "the first
thing you should ask for is money" and not a deadline extension.

Community helps community

Thursday is the day set aside to give thanks, and everyone
observes this national holiday in their own private way.
For many, this is a gathering of family and friends around the
table for good food, good conversation and a time to pause and
consider all the benefits we enjoy.
Sadly, for many too many it's another reminder of loss
and hard times.
If you can afford to give money or volunteer your time, a won-
derful way to give thanks is to assist the many charitable groups
who will be feeding the homeless, including the HigherLove
Mission in Marathon, Salvation Army, Glad Tidings Tabernacle
and others.

Citizens help keep focus on housing


EDITOR:
It is ridiculous that Monroe County
Commissioner Mario Di Gennaro blames some cit-
izens who have fought for responsible government
in this county.
The Monroe County inclusionary housing ordi-
nance states residential developments shall be
required to develop or redevelop at least 30 percent
of the residential units as affordable housing units.
This inclusionary housing requirement has been
enforced in Monroe County redevelopment of
properties only because of the efforts of a small
group of people.
The first time was Fisherman's Cove in Key
Largo. A 'small group of people" attended the
April 24 Development Review Committee meet-
ing, requesting inclusionary housing from develop-
ers. The staff report to the Planning Commission
never once recommended inclusionary housing.
At the April 25 Planning Commission meeting,
this "small group of people" stood up in front of
the planning commissioners requesting this devel-
opment agreement have inclusionary housing. As a
result, Fisherman's Cove provided two affordable
homes off site for its employees.
The second time was at the Oct. 25 Planning
Commission meeting for Mandalay Bay in Key
Largo. This "small group of people" stood up in


front of the planning commissioners requesting
inclusionary housing. Staff attorneys told the com-
missioners that the County Attorney's Office
opined that the Mandalay Bay property was
exempt from inclusionary housing.
On Nov. 14, the planning commissioners sent
the Mandalay project on to the County
Commission -without requiring inclusionary hous-
ing. Yet again, this same "small group of people"
appeared at the County Commission meeting
requesting inclusionary housing from this develop-
er. Commissioners George Neugent and Sylvia
Murphy had the political will to stand up and
request this developer furnish the inclusionary
housing. The "gang of three" sat silent.
The developer realized it had to do something
or face another two years in the system to get its
upscale homes built. It relinquished eight transient
units to the county for affordable housing.
How dare Commissioner Di Gennaro say this
"small group of people" does not want affordable
housing. Since the inclusionary housing ordinance
was enacted in August 2006, it has been enforced
because of the efforts of "a small group of people,"
not the county.

Key Largo, village should stay with sewer plans


EDITOR:
"An offer they can't refuse" is a very catchy
phrase. It is also a vagarious phrase used by the
Islamorada Village Council to solicit comprehen-
sive data and conclusions from the Key Largo
Wastewater Treatment District.
On Nov. 8, the council was faced with the deci-
sion to accept a staff recommendation to proceed
with the village master wastewater plan or scrap it
and send their sewage to Key Largo, a dynamical-
ly different approach from their master plan, pos-
sibly requiring the demolition of the Plantation
Key Colony treatment plant.
The council concluded the village would con-
tinue with two more phases of its master waste-
water plan. But it then added, perhaps an escape
clause, to solicit from the Key Largo district an
offer Islamorada cannot refuse, in essence, bring
us a deal better than what we already have (our
plan). The Village Council also indicated it was
now up to Key Largo to bring the village a deal
the village can't refuse. The council directed
Councilman Chris Sante to solicit Key Largo for a
cannot-refuse offer.
So where does this leave the Key Largo sewer
district? Does this put the district in a competitive
environment? Will the district be competing with
the village's consultants/staff to bring forth the
best offer, the lowest bid? Is it Islamorada's inten-
tion to have the district design any portion of the
Islamorada wastewater system in order submit a
cannot-refuse offer? If so, where is the request for
proposals fr6m Islamorada?
So what's the district going to do? Will both
parties continue the fruitless dialogue while each
one does its own thing? Should the district quietly
and at district expense engage in apparently inef-
fective dialogue? Should the district do nothing


and hope the issue just fades away? That would
leave the staff in a quandary as to what board poli-
cy is. Would the district board best serve both
communities by establishing policy not to engage
in further dialogue regarding Islamorada's flow?
In light of Islamorada's decision to not send
sewage to Key Largo at this time and with Key
Largo's limited resources and funds, it will be best
for both parties to continue with their original
scope. Key Largo has a monumental task con-
structing and maintaining a Key Largo central
wastewater system. The task is large and expen-
sive and in order to provide best-quality cost-
effective construction and service, we must con-
centrate all our efforts on our original scope.

Harbormaster shines up Marathon gem


EDITOR:
There has been a lot of talk lately
about the City of Marathon Marina
and Boot Key Harbor, about the new
mooring field, the possibility of addi-
tional dockage, construction of new
bath houses and laundry facilities,
our two state-of-the-art pump-out
boats and about the marina becoming
financially self sufficient.
People are seeing manatees and
dolphins come back into the harbor
as a result of cleaner water. In fact, a
workshop has been initiated to inves-
tigate further development of the
marina office building and grounds.
What is the common denominator
in all of these developments? It is the
culmination of years of hard work
and determination by harbormaster
Rich Tanner and his staff. Rich iook
the position back in the early 2000s.
At that time, there wasn't even a
mooring field and the only dockage
was at the marina bulkhead, which
could only accommodate a handful
of boats.
This coming season there is
already a waiting list for the 226-unit
mooring field and bulkhead tie-up.
For the first time ever, the marina
will cover all its operating costs and
then some.
This coming season, with the pro-
curement of grant money, two state-
of-the-art pump-out boats will be
able to service not only the mooring
field but the anchorage area as. well.
This year, Rich has completed the


state's sovereign bay-bottom lease.
This will allow the city to take con-
trol over the harbor bay bottom and
enforce the city harbor ordinances.
By doing so, the marina will increase
revenue and ensure cleaner water for
all Marathon residents.
Tanner would like to see the park-
like theme of the Community Park
carry over into the marina grounds.
He sees the marina as a place to
bring together the harbor residents,
the seasonal tourists and the land res-
idents of Marathon to sit and enjoy
views of the harbor. Currently, there
is no public place for people to gath--
er and enjoy this gem.
Even with the introduction of the
new rate structure for the 2008 sea-
son, the relationship between the
staff and harbor residents has never
been better. A chord of harmony has
been struck between the liveaboard
community and marina staff.
Rich's newest project is making
the marina compliant with the
Americans with Disabilities Act.
Again, Rich and his staff are com-
mitted to solving the needs of the
harbor residents.
We at the city Near Shore Water
Committee would appreciate it if the
Marathon City Council would extend
a most-deserved round of applause to
Rich Tanner and his staff.

ADA lawsuits aren't necessary


EDITOR:
In resent weeks there have been
many articles and letters to the editor
in which some businesses have stated
they don't need to be sued to comply
with the Americans with Disability
Act.
These business (and marinas)
have had many years to voluntarily
comply but did not or have not. That
is why they were sued.
When it was brought to the atten-
tion of the City of Marathon Marina
staff that the marina did not comply
with the ADA, Ports Manager C.J.
Geotis and Marina Manager Richard
Tanner took action within hours, not
weeks, months or years. They set out
immediately to bring the marina into
ADA compliance. They did not have
to be sued.
And when the'City Council found
out the city was not in compliance,
it, too, took action without being
sued. On Nov. 13, the council
passed, 5-0, a resolution setting new
rates for the city marina and mooring
field.
Under Section 3 of this resolution,


it states, "The City Council addition-
ally directs staff to continue not
charging for dinghy docks to dis-
abled customers, as determined by
the ports manager, pursuant to appro-
priate evidence thereof, until such
time as the City Marina has achieved
Americans with Disability Act com-
pliance."
So if you are handicapped/dis-
abled and have the paperwork, take it
with you when you pay for your
mooring fee. The dinghy dockage fee
will be subtracted from your mooring
fee. And as I read the resolution,
those at anchor who are handi-
capped/disabled and can prove it will
not have to pay a dinghy dock fee
and they will still be allowed all
services.
So when I hear a business say it
didn't need to be sued, it knows bet-
ter.
I congratulate Ports Manager C.J.
Geotis, Marina Manager Richard
Tanner and Marathon's City Council
for taking steps in the right direction.

Spehar's sudden switch

looks like a voter ploy


A few things to ponder as Monroe
County Administrator Tom Willi
seems headed to his final days as the
Keys' top non-elected executive:
u When he carves his Thanksgiving
turkey Thursday, will he start by stab-
bing it in the back, which he likely
feels County Commissioner Dixie
Spehar did to him?
u Will Spehar's move to end his
contract before it expires tell voters
she's doing what she thinks is right
even though it's obviously being done
to gain political support she lacks
heading into her re-election cam-
paign?
u Is there a new Gang of
Three on the County
Commission? Well, let's not
go that far. This is just one
vote, after all. But it's huge.
For the first time in recent
memory, Spehar has broken
ranks with Mayor Sonny
McCoy and Commissioner
Mario Di Gennaro -
Willi's two biggest support-
ers and not only fol-
lowed commissioners Larry
George Neugent and Sylvia Keynol
Murphy in wanting Willi
gone after three years on the
job, she's taken the lead.
She tried to get a vote earlier this
month when the commission met, but
couldn't get it on the agenda. So now
we have a special meeting coldly
titled on the legal notice as "termina-
tion of the employment of County
Administrator Thomas J. Willi." It's at
9 a.m. Dec. 5 at the Harvey
Government Center in Key West.
Bring your popcorn and be ready for
the entertainment. It won't be quite as
good and likely won't last the four
hours as that circus in February, when
the commission argued and screamed
and behaved like little children in a
special meeting before finally voting
3-2 to retain the administrator.
That vote, most know, had Spehar
siding with McCoy and Di Gennaro to
keep Willi. Now that support is done.
Spehar says she has her own reasons
for switching sides. But skeptics
among us and there are thousands
- see this as nothing more than her
looking to the November 2008 elec-
tion and realizing that everywhere she
goes, she', Di Gennaro and McCoy are


increasingly unpopular. You don't
need a Lou Harris poll to gauge that
unpopularity it's heard in the mar-
kets, in the bars, in the editorials,
everywhere.
Willi's made his own bed, no doubt
about it. He's taken what was a
healthy county budget two or three
years ago and sunk it deeper than USS
Vandenberg will go. Blame the market
forces for part of that, but also blame
the person in charge of the county
budget for making foolish recommen-
dations to the commissioners on where
to spend the money. That's Willi.
Which brings us back to
Spehar. The two main votes
that seem to keep coming
back to her, McCoy and Di
Gennaro were to buy the
Hickory House restaurant
S on Stock Island and use $2
million in infrastructure tax
money to help scuttle the
Vandenberg six miles off
S Key West.
': It might be a little unfair
. to mix Di Gennaro in with
Kahn those votes since he wasn't
er Editor a commissioner when they
were initially taken, but
he's stood solidly by them
and affirmed their goodness whenever
the issues came to the commission -
which was often.
The county bought the Hickory
House, ostensibly to maintain public
waterfront access, for $3.1 million.
Then it sold it to a developer at a
$20,000 loss.
The county also set aside infrastruc-
ture money to sink the Vandenberg,
then tried to wiggle out of that mess
by trying to get the Tourist
Development Council to pick up that
tab. Thanks but no, the TDC said. So
the county is stuck with that $2 mil-
lion commitment at a time when it's
cutting library hours and other servic-
es in an effort to patch together a net
of a budget.
Spehar hitched her wagon to Willi.
Now she's leading the charge to send
him into the sunset. It's pretty appar-
ent she's doing this to win back politi-
cal support, but it likely won't work.
Voters here have long memories.
In fact, come next November, voters
just might send her into that very sun-
set where'WiIli se6ms h'ahde'&

Fire probe ongoing


Conch Key
man is killed
early Sunday
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Unable to escape flames
that engulfed his chair, a
Conch Key man died
moments after calling for help
before dawn Sunday.
James Erickson, 64, had a
medical condition that left
him largely immobilized,
authorities say.
Erickson called the 911
emergency line at 3:20 a.m.
Sunday, telling a dispatcher
that "he was sitting in his.
chair [and] the chair caught
fire," said Becky Herrin,
spokeswoman for the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office. "He
couldn't get up from the
chair."
An explosion rocked the
wooden home moments later.
Sheriff's Deputy Joel Slough
had reached the scene and saw
flames coming from the home.


0 I

As he was grabbing his pry
bar to prepare to enter, there
was an explosion.
Cause of the explosion had
not been confirmed at press
time, but officials noted that
Erickson used an oxygen bot-
tle that may have exploded in
the heat.
Erickson also was a smok-
er, acquaintances said.
After the explosion, the
flames made entering the
house, at the Gulf of Mexico
end of Conch Avenue, impos-
sible to enter.
Fire units arrived and made
"an aggressive attack on the
fire," Monroe County Fire
Rescue Capt. Steven Zavalney
in a written report said. "The
fire was contained and extin-
guished in a matter of min-
utes."
Career and volunteer fire-
fighters from Monroe County
Station 18 in Layton and
Marathon Fire Rescue
responded, Zavalney said.
"After the fire was extin-
guished, Erickson's body was
found inside," Herrin said.


"Erickson reportedly needed
frequent assistance to get out
of his chair and to maneuver
around his home. He was also
known to smoke cigarettes
and was on oxygen to help
him breathe."
An adjacent home also
reportedly suffered damage in
the blaze that destroyed
Erickson's car.
The exterior of the
Erickson home remained
standing, but the interior was
severely damaged, a neighbor
said.
Investigation reportedly
continued at press time.
In May 2005, a man was
killed by a fire aboard a
derelict sailboat moored off
Key West.
Key Largo resident Paul
Michal, 72, died in a Jan. 30,
1999, fire on Ocean Bay
Drive. Key Largo firefighters
rescued two other people from
that burning structure.
Earlier this year in the
Upper Keys, an arsonist set
fires at several vacant struc-
tures. A Key Largo man faces
charges in that case. No one
was injured.


New fire station


is nearly ready


It's already
being used,
the chief says
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The city of Marathon is
working out the final kinks
before officially taking posses-
sion of its new fire station at
Florida Keys Marathon Airport,
Fire Chief Dale Beaver says.
"The inspection was done
[Tuesday] and,everything looks
good. There were issues with
stuff not being completed -
final details," Beaver said.
The certificate of occupancy
was received more than a week
ago, he said.
Fire Rescue has been operat-
ing out of hotels since Hurricane
Wilma in October 2005, most
recently the Coconut Cay Resort
& Marina on Aviation
Boulevard. Beaver said workers
began moving into the new sta-
tion last Monday after a 13-
month stay there.
"We're running calls out of it
and we're in the process of try-
ing to find a place for all the
stuff we had. We're officially in
here, but. the dedication they
don't want to do until all items
have been taken care of," Beaver
said, pointing to minor painting
and electrical issues.
Beaver said the city had been
budgeting $6,000 monthly to
rent four buildings at Coconut
Cay. He said moving into the
new station is like a "dream
come true."
"I'd like to thank the council
and the taxpayers of Marathon


for putting us in a fine building
and providing us with the tools
to provide a service," Beaver
said. "All the guys are really
happy."
Beaver acknowledged the
station was expensive, but said
in the long run it would save the
city money. The building's large
price tag has drawn the ire of
many taxpayers who feel it
could have been constructed for
far less money.
Community Services
Director Susie Thomas said the
fire station had a maximum
budget of $6.1 million and the
city is "well within our budget."
"They'll never have -to
replace this building. There's a
lot of advantages to this building
and it's going to be there forev-
er," he said.
One such advantage is vehi-
cle maintenance, Beaver said.
All the department's vehicles
have been kept out in the ele-
ments for more than two years
now.
"There was no other place to
go. Starting next week we'll do a
thorough cleaning and mainte-
nance now that we can protect
them from the weather," he said.
Beaver also said the station's
location is important as well.
"We're. strategically located
in the city, where we don't have
to make those difficult turns off
of Aviation" Boulevard, he said.
The city is also setting up a
room in the station with audio-
visual equipment so future coun-
cil meetings can be held there. It
is negotiating with Comcast for
its own channel as well.

A Key West man -was sen-
tenced to 15 years in prison
Tuesday, the last three of which
he will serve on sex-offender pro-
bation, for raping a 23-year-old
woman from Kentucky last year.
Jean C. Miclisse, 29, a Haitian
national, also received from
Monroe County Circuit Court
Judge two five-year prison terms
for false imprisonment and
police-impersonation charges to
run concurrently to the 15 years.
Miclisse pretended to be a
police officer when he hand-
cuffed his victim and raped her
Feb. 5, 2006, in a dirt-covered
area called Dead Man's Curve off
South Roosevelt Boulevard,
according to a police report.
Assistant Monroe County
State Attorney VaLWinter prose-
cuted the case, asking Jones for
the maximum sentence: 25 years.
"Miclisse not only ruthlessly
violated a young woman, he also
violated the public trust in law
enforcement," Winter said.
"While we had hoped for a longer
sentence, we are pleased that
Miclisse will be off of the streets
of our town for a very long time."
Prosecutors say the crime began
when Miclisse found the tourist's
cell phone after -she lost it at a
Rick's nightclub on Duval Street
and told her she could have it back
if she went with him to his car.
She approached Miclisse's
Ford Expedition, at which point
he pretended to make a call to one
of her friends and offered her a
ride home prosecutors say.
The victim entered his car
under the impression she would
receive a ride back to her hotel.
After driving for a while, she
realized he wasn't driving to the
hotel, at which point she unsuc-
cessfully tried to escape from the
moving car, authorities say.
They say from there, Miclisse
drove her to the remote spot,

GOT GUESTS?
I GET NEW
TROPICAL
LOOK I


flashed a fake a police badge and
handcuffed her behind her back,
forcing her to face the ground.
"He seemed angry and I was
afraid if I upset him he would kill
me," she said in the report.
The victim said after Miclisse
finished raping her, he helped her
up, brushed dirt off of her and said,
"I'm sorry you made me do that."
He then drove her to the Key
West Waffle House on North
Roosevelt Boulevard, where she
ran out into the street and flagged
down a Key West police officer.
It took a jury less than two
hours in October to convict
Miclisse of sexual battery, a sec-
ond-degree felony, as well as
impersonating a police officer
and false imprisonment, both
third-degree felonies.
In a letter addressed to the
judge, the victim hand wrote,
"Today is a very hard day for a lot
of people, but for me it's going to
be closure.
"Jean Miclisse took my con-
trol from me that night, some-
thing that I hope every day I will
get back over time, or through the
help of a professional."


DOT comes down for input


5-year plan
getting its
annual update
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A $1.66 million project to
repair "diaphragms" in the
Seven Mile Bridge will be
among the first major state
construction programs under a
new five-year work plan for
Monroe County, according to
the Florida Department of
Transportation.
Hearings on .the five-year
plan for 2008-12 begin next
week in Miami-Dade County.
DOT officials hold a hear-
ing in the Florida Keys at 6
p.m. Dec. 6 at the Marathon
Government Center.
The work to repair the
diaphragms, between the seg-
mented sections of the bridge,
is scheduled for 2008, accord-
ing to,DOT documents.
Another bridge project is
scheduled for 2009 when
structural repairs are made to


the Channel 2 Bridge. That
project is budgeted at $2.2
million.
Also possibly in the plan,
though details could not be
ascertained, is changing the
red-light intersection at Card
Sound Road and State Road
905 in North Key Largo to a
soft curve with no light stop-
ping traffic so hurricane evac-
uation could be quicker.
Public hearings on the plan
are held to take comments on
whether work priorities
should be shifted, DOT infor-
mation officer David Ramil
said.
About $55 million worth of
projects in the Keys tentative-
ly are planned for construc-
tion in 2008.
Total cost of the five-year
work plan for Monroe and
Miami-Dade counties was
still being calculated this
week, Ramil said. "Those
numbers are being crunched
as we speak," he said
Tuesday.
Monroe County has dozens
of projects, ranging from





^///-,/'
r' c lui ,


planning for bike paths to
major road resurfacing and
construction.
"The hearings are a chance
for people to speak up and
have their voices heard,"
Ramil said. "If they think the
priority list should be adjust-
ed, they can go on the record
to say so."
Additional projects likely
will not be added because of
particularly tight state budgets
heading into the upcoming
work plan, Ramil said.
.An electronic version of
the tentative work program
for DOT District 6 is available
at www.myflorida.com.
Changes could be made
because of rising costs and
other factors, state officials
noted.
Hearings are scheduled:
8 a.m. Tuesday at the
University of Miami
Convocation Center in Coral
Gables.
8 a.m. Nov. 29 at Miami-
Dade College on Northwest
27th Avenue.
+ 6 p.m. Dec. 6 at the
Marathon Government Center.

But the transit
also has some
big drawbacks
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Excessive driving is often syn-
onymous with the holiday sea-
son. That's why public trans-
portation becomes a more attrac-
tive option this time of year to
Keys residents who want to shop
or visit family on the mainland
and not succumb to extreme gas
prices and wear and tear to their
automobiles.
The bill for reaching the main-
land from Key West riding the bus
comes to just $4 at the most: $2 a
head to get from Key West to
Marathon ($1 for under age 18,
senior citizens or military person-
nel) and from Marathon to Florida
City via the Dade-Monroe
Express costs a flat $1.85.
From Florida City, Miami-
Dade charges just 50 cents per
person to anywhere in Miami,
spokesman John Labriola said.
Labriola said ridership actual-
ly decreases during the holidays
because workers, their bulk rider-
ship, take time off.
"We do have quite a regular
ridership this time of what I
would call housewives, and
maybe a middle-aged to older
group ... and a few ladies who do


a lot of shopping," Key West
Department of Transportation
Director Myra Wittenberg said,
emphasizing the environmental
benefits of riding the bus.
And gas "costs aren't getting
any better; neither is traffic," she
added.
According to www.florida
stategasprices.com, regular
gas prices are at an average of
$3.36 in Key West, so public
transit travel on U.S. 1 means
saving big.
Wittenberg admits public tran-
sit is not always advantageous to
shoppers looking to bring home
large gifts. There aren't a whole
lot of places to stuff a Jet Ski or a
72-inch plasma television on a
city bus.
And riding up U.S. 1 to shop
can have its drawbacks on the
Keys economy, as buying locally
helps the community, Key West
Chamber of Commerce Exec-
utive Vice President Virginia
Panico said.
"The dollar turns over a mini-
mum of six times," she said.
"Buying locally keeps our econo-
my strong in the community.
You're supporting your neigh-
bors, your friends."
Panico said the chamber's We
Love Locals campaign includes
more than 70 local -businesses
offering 15 percent discounts.
Another potential drawback to


riding the bus could be a wait of
up to an hour if you miss a bus.
Still, during, last year's
Thanksgiving, 809 Key West res-
idents rode the bus, almost dou-
ble the amount in 2005, which
had 462 riders, according to data
compiled by Eduardo Herrera of
the city DOT. The city buses will
not operate this Thanksgiving
Day. They will, however, be in
full service for the day after
Thanksgiving considered the
busiest shopping day of the year.
The average ridership of
January 2006 and 2007 was
44,104, a seasonal increase of
4,971 compared to June's two-
year average of 39,133 riders.
The ridership numbers in
December are actually higher
than they appear (2006 had
26,369 riders compared to 2005's
55,291 riders after Hurricane
Wilma), factoring in defunct tick-
et stubs and free bus days.
The Key West DOT's offering
free rides from Dec. 19 to Dec. 24
to give residents a feel for public
transit probably had something to
do with high ridership.
After press time Tuesday, the
Key West City Commission
addressed a resolution proposed
by the department that would
allow those fee-free days this
year as well.

Carlyle Group
looks at A & B,
Turtle Kraals
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

Management of Turtle Kraals
and the Half Shell Raw Bar in
Key West might be sold to pri-
vate equity firm The Carlyle
Group, pending a review by the
Key West Bight Management
District Board.
The A & B Lobster House
property will be sold along with
the two leases, said Gene Smith,
who holds the leases for his
Southernmost Restaurant
Group.
Earlier this year, Smith was
in negotiations with Cay Clubs
to sell that company the leases
along with the nearby A & B
property. Southernmost
Restaurant Group owns the two
Bight-area leases and the A & B
Lobster House, Alonzo's Oyster
Bar, White Tarpon and Berlin's
Cocktails & Cigars.
Marilyn Wilbarger, a city port
operations manager, allayed
fears the Bight would drastically
change with new leaseholders,
saying the two buildings must
remain restaurants or bars. And
the Bight Board will review the
proposal by Carlyle to ensure it
is an adequate manager, she
said.
The A & B property, howev-
er, is not part of the area con-
trolled by the Bight Board and
has few restrictions on redevel-
opment, said Brendon
Cunningham of the city plan-
ning office. The property could
remain a restaurant or lawfully
become apartments, offices,
parking, homes or a church.
The group has not announced
who will manage the property or
its plans for the waterfront


parcels. But Cay Clubs Vice
President for Development and
Acquisition Frank Rego has
been representing Carlyle's
interest in dealings with the city,
Wilbarger said.
At some point in negotia-
tions, Rego said he was repre-
senting Marina Associates LLC,
a company recently formed by
Cay Clubs Chief Executive
Officer Dave Clark, Wilbarger
said. But she would not specu-
late as to what position Marina
Associates still had in the deal.
In the spring, when Cay
Clubs was still negotiating for
the leases, Rego said that they
would not make significant
changes to the area once
acquired.
Dealings between Smith and
Cay Clubs stalled this fall as the
Clearwater-based resort compa-
ny fell on hard financial times.
Smith said last week that the
Carlyle Group entered the Bight
negotiations as Cay Clubs' pri-
vate equity partner. Cay Clubs
has been seeking an angel
investor to absorb more than $70
million in debts that were due at
the end of the year.
The Carlyle Group is one of
the world's largest private equity
firms, worth more than $75 bil-
lion. The group is most known
for keeping its name out of the
news and employing world lead-
ers like former President Bush.
Private equity firms control
large pools of money that seek
investment opportunities under
various managers and divisions.
One of Carlyle's top directors at
its U.S. real estate division -
David Daniel is leading the
charge on the Bight-area deal.
Representatives from Carlyle
did not return calls for comment
by press time. Cay Clubs repre-
sentatives have not returned
repeated calls for comment.


Cay Clubs, along with busi-
ness partner Sunvest, has had at
least partial ownership of con-
dos, hotels and restaurants up
and down the Keys, as well as
condos dotting the Gulf Coast of


Florida, in Orlando and Las
Vegas.
The company has been facing
financial setbacks since this
summer, failing to pay condo
owners promised rental income,

Singh, Swift want transfers


9 would be
changed to
market rate
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Keys developers Pritam Singh
and Ed Swift have proposed trans-
ferring nine transient rental licens-
es from the Parrot Key Resort at
2801 N. Roosevelt Blvd. in Key
West to market-rate apartments at
Greene and Dey streets.
"We want all of the transient
licenses we can get, and keep,"
Singh told the city Planning
Board, emphasizing the island's
lifeblood: tourism.
About 18 months ago, the
157-unit Hampton Inn was
demolished to make way for the
74 Parrot Key townhouses being
constructed. That left Singh with
83 leftover transient licenses.
At Thursday's Planning Board
*meeting, Singh represented both
the site that would send over the
licenses, his Parrot Key property,
and the site that would receive the
licenses, Old Town properties
owned by Swift.
Planning Board member
Barry Barroso Jr. agreed with the
importance of maintaining tran-
sient licenses to maintain high
bed -tax revenue, but also told the
Keynoter that if that proposal
fails, the licenses will not expire,


contrary to what Singh said at
Thursday's meeting.
"It's in the best interest of the
city to transfer these units,"
Barroso said, adding he thinks,
given the size of Swift's apart-
ments, most of the units require
two licenses.
However, Last Stand member
George Halloran said the propos-
al would take "nine market units
right off the table. It puts pressure
on the entire housing problem in
the city of Key West:"
An attempt to transfer tran-
sient licenses to Old Town in
mid-June resulted in a Circuit
Court hearing in which Judge
David Audlin ruled the Key West
City Commission, acting as the
Board of Adjustment, violated
the comprehensive land-use plan
when it passed a measure that
allowed homes to be rented out
by owners who haven't lived in
them for five years.
That measure would've
allowed Singh to transfer licenses
from the Hampton Inn to proper-
ties on Petronia and Simonton
streets.
Now the Planning Board has
the authority to decide if this
transfer should occur.
Singh told the board that occu-
pants of the potential transient
units would be a higher class of
tourists, not the college crowd
that used to cram into rooms at

the Hampton Inn during Spring
Break.
"It's a completely different
kind of person coming here,"
Singh said.
According to city code, "The
Planning Board shall consider
whether the receiver site is suit-
able for transient use in the zon-
ing district [and] shall consider
the relative size of the unit from
which the license is transferred."
The apartments range from
2,115 square feet to 550 square
feet.
The Planning Department rec-
ommended denial and gave its
recommendation as to how many
licenses should be required if the
proposal is approved: two for each
unit, with the exception of a 550-
and a 664-square-foot unit on
Greene Street. Those each require
one, Planning documents read.
Singh said the units at the
Casa Marina and Beachside
resorts are large and only require
one license.
Barroso suggested arranging a
committee to set criteria to deter-
mine what size units require what
number of licenses.
According to the Planning
Department, no one else can
transfer from the commercial
zoning district but Trepanier and
Associates, Singh's planner,
because they have a development
agreement with the city.

Dream's more than a home


Dellanos gets
a choice job
thanks to HGTV
By PAMELA J. SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor

One of the first construction
jobs Juan R. Dellanos Jr. had was
laying mosaic tile in the bath-
rooms of a vast warehouse where
his dad, Juan Ramon Dellanos


Sr., was working construction.
Young Juan spent that entire
summer laying the tiny tiles, one
after another, because he wanted
to help his dad and earn a new
bike.
He was 7 years old.
For Dellanos, now 38, those
happy days spent on construc-
tion sites with his dad and
everything he learned as a result
- helped make him what he is


today: a business owner and a
Dream Home builder.
Not only did Dellanos
achieve his lifelong goal of start-
ing his own construction busi-
ness this year, but he was also
tapped for a construction job
with national exposure when
representatives from Home and
Garden Television chose his
fledgling company, Dellanos
Construction in Taverier, to

'I was really apprehensive'


DREAM HOME / From 14

build its 2008 Dream Home in
Islamorada.
"I couldn't believe it when I
heard they chose me," Dellanos
said. "I still can't believe it, to
tell you the truth."
Dellanos, who was born and
raised in the Keys, said he and
his crew of 16 were already
lined up to build eight bayfront
homes at The Shore at
Islamorada, a small upscale
subdivision in which each
house would be named after a
famous backcountry fishing
guide. That job in itself was a
coup for the young entrepre-
neur who had only recently
launched his company.
But before he had the chance
to break ground, he received a
call from HGTV's Jack
Thomasson, who said he was
considering one of the yet-to-
be-built houses at The Shore
for the network's next Dream
Home, which would be given
away in an HGTV contest in
early 2008.
Dellanos said HGTV had the
option of reassigning the job to
another company, but
Thomasson wanted to meet
with Dellanos first. Thomasson
traveled to the Keys last March
and in less than an hour chose
Dellanos Construction for the
job.
But there was a hitch.
Dellanos was not sure he want-
ed it.
"I was really apprehensive,"
Dellanos said. "We're a young
company it could either
make you or break you. I was
hesitant because of the tight
schedule, too. I've never been
late on a job, and I sure didn't
want this to be the first one."
But after some soul search-
ing, Dellanos agreed to the new
terms and he, along with half
his company's workforce, start-
ed construction May 26.
He said that despite his ini-
tial trepidation, it was the
smoothest job he has ever been
involved in. He and his crew
hammered the last nail Sept.
18, beating the deadline with
24 hours to spare.
The three-bedroom home -
estimated to be worth around
$2.2 million features an
open floor plan with the main
living area on the second floor.
The third floor is devoted to a
master suite with a massive


bathroom, as well as a porch
for taking in the stunning bay
views.
"It was a fun job from start
to finish, even though it was a
hard job to do," Dellanos said.
"The [subcontractors] all did a
great job. Nobody quit. Nobody
left. And the greatest reward
was working with those guys,
my team, and really seeing
what we could do together."
Building the Dream Home
was especially meaningful for
Dellanos, he said, because one
of "those guys" was his dad.
The elder Dellanos, a Cuban
immigrant who serves as his
son's construction superintend-


ent, said he was proud to have a
hand in turning the Dream
Home into a reality and helping
propel his son's new business
into the national spotlight.
And in a poignant role
reversal from the way it was 30
years ago, Dellanos Sr. was
assigned a very important job
this past summer.
"I [laid] the bathroom tiles,"
he said. "Just to help finish on
time."

indication from Ramos the proj-
ect will be completed.
"As of a few days ago, work-
ers were down there putting
infrastructure in," Jimenez said.
But documents from the
County Clerk's Office tell of a
legal battle between Ramos'
company and the project's con-
struction company, Landel
Construction Corp.
Ramos' company filed suit in
Miami-Dade County Circuit
Court in January claiming
Landel's practices resulted in
TransAtlantic seeking the fore-


closure. That suit was transferred
to Monroe in October.
The chief complaints in the
suit are that Landel did not com-
plete work the two parties agreed
would be done within a six-
month time frame; Landel sub-
mitted draw requests misrepre-
senting the percentage of work
completed; and Landel misallo-
cated funds budgeted for certain
construction line items.
Jose Garcia, Landel's owner,
could not be reached for comment.
Landel also placed hundreds
of thousands of dollars in liens
against Ciudad Mar, which
Ramos claims in the suit were
exaggerated.

A festive day open to everyone


Local groups
ensure holiday
feasts for all
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

As the smell of roasting
turkey drifts through our homes,
it's easy to forget there are peo-
ple in our community who don't
have the blessing others do.
But a good number of Keys
residents forego the comforts of
Thanksgiving at home to help
others enjoy a hot meal and
some companionship.
"Thanksgiving is not just
about food and football or even
family," said Pastor Ernie
DeLoach from the Glad Tidings
Tabernacle in Key West. "It has
nothing to do with a battle or a
birthday. It's simply a day to
express our gratitude."
DeLoach and more than 30
volunteers will serve a sit-down
Thanksgiving feast Thursday.
It's open to anyone in need, and
DeLoach expects as many as
300 people. That doesn't include
the 100 or more care boxes that
will be delivered to families of


lesser means.
Deborah Maletic is doing the
same in Marathon, opening the
doors of the HigherLove
Mission to anyone who is hun-
gry. Last year, the mission
served 85 dinners, and Maletic
expects more than 100 this year.
"Everyone's welcome," she
said. "In past years it's been pri-
marily for the homeless. But this
year we're telling people,
There's no need for you to be
alone."
She expects a lot of live-
aboard residents to partake.
On Big Pine Key, the Keys
Vineyard Community Church is
offering a full turkey dinner with
all the trimmings tonight.
Each year dozens of local res-
idents give up their family din-
ner to help.
Maletic said the women of
Zonta in Marathon are helping at
HigherLove. At Glad Tidings,
"more than 30 people will serve
heaping hot plates to people who
may not know where their next
meal is coming from.
Those who are unable to
donate their time can still find a
way to give. As of Monday,


Lower Keys Girl Scout Troops 221 and 331 led by Diane Hills
collected food to fill in baskets for three families in need to
ensure they have a blessed Thanksgiving. Wesley House
Family Services referred the families.


DeLoach said his organization
had received close to 100
turkeys. The smaller group at the
Marathon mission had already
received eight plus a number of
hams.
"The PACE [School for
Girls] girls are doing the center-
pieces," Maletic said. "And
Cristiano's Cafe in Marathon
will be cooking our turkeys. In
the past, we used to have to farm


them all out to be cooked."
Feeding the Multitudes
begins at 11 a.m. at the Glad
Tidings Tabernacle at 1209
United St., Key West.
The HigherLove Mission din-
ner begins, at 2 p.m. at 1669
Overseas Highway, behind
Furniture Now.
Dinner at the Vineyard is
served at 6 tonight at 100
Country Road on Big Pine Key.

Coral Shores
falls victim
to Lady Conchs
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Coming off an easy 63-24
victory against Coral Shores
Friday, the Key West High
School girls' basketball team
ran into its first serious compe-
tition of the young season on
Saturday, losing, 58-37, at home
to St. Andrew's of Boca Raton.
"It should help us playing a
team of that caliber," coach
Glenn Hayes said of St.
Andrew's, which had all of its
starters back from last year's
20-5 team. "They were very
strong and disciplined."
The Conchs, who fell to 2-1,
fell victim to the Scots give-
and-go style of play and gave up
an abundance of layups. St.
Andrew's led, 14-5, after the
first quarter, and increased the
lead to 25-12 at halftime.
Sophomore Chelsea Storr


kept the Conchs reasonably
close with eight first-half
points, including two 3-point
baskets.
St. Andrew's made its first
eight shots in the third quarter,
including two 3-pointers by
Meredith Donaldson, who led
the Scots with 15 points.
Trailing 47-19 after three
quarters, the Conchs outscored
the Scots, 18-12, in the fourth
period, with senior Kristen
Babich scoring eight points on
inside moves and also adding a
steal, an assist and several
rebounds. Storr finished with 14
points.
Storr had 18 points and
Babich 13-on Friday against
visiting Coral Shores as. 12
Conchs scored.
Coral Shores coach Dan
Smith said before the game that
his inexperienced team might
panic against the Conchs' press-
ing defense. That happened
early as the Conchs got off to a

40-0 shutout
closes the year
for the Dolphins
By RYAN McCARTHY

The Marathon High School
football team's season came to
a crushing close Friday with a
loss to King's Academy in the
first round of the Class 2B state
championship tournament, 40-
0.
Dolphin coach Lance Martin


said the team made too many
errors against what he called a
well-coached team that plays
"mistake-free" football.
"We made the mistakes with
three turnovers and two
blocked punts and they didn't.
We were never in a situation to
get going," Martin said. "We
kept having penalties putting
us in first-and-15 and first-and-
20. There's no plays to run in
that situation."

Conchs

wear down i i

Hurricanes .. ..

HOOPS / From 19


10-2 lead.
With Hayes substituting five
players at a time, the Conchs
easily wore down the
Hurricanes, who had trouble
getting off shots. Freshman
Latrice Johnson scored six
points for Coral Shores (0-2).
Key West led, 56-21, after
the third quarter, and because of
that 35-point lead, a running
clock was used in the fourth
period. It finally elapsed as
Cassie McGee's basket gave
the Conchs their 57th and 58th
points.

Undefeated

Ransom

is next up

SOCCER / From 19

years.
Ransom; the defending 16-
3A champion, stands at 2-0-2
after beating Archbishop Carroll
in a 6-0 match earlier this week.
"This is going to be a big one
for us," Bosque said, "and we
know Ransom is going to be
good."
Coral Shores has made its
best start in years with a 4-1 reg-
ular-season record, 7-1 overall.
The Hurricanes fell from the
ranks of the undefeated Friday
in a 1-0 loss to Pembroke Pines
Charter, a Class 4A school from
Broward County.
"They're a bigger school and
pretty good, but we outshot and
outplayed them," Bosque said.
"We just couldn't score. We
probably missed 10 scoring
opportunities."
The loss could help the
Canes prepare to take on
Ransom, Bosque said. "It defi-
nitely exposed some areas we
need to work on."
The Hurricanes, off this
week for Thanksgiving break,
travel to Marathon High School
Nov. 29.

Kings' rushing attack fatal


FOOTBALL / From 19

The Dolphins ran 24 times
for 104 yards a respectable
4.33 yards per carry but
were unable to keep pace with
the explosive Lions offense.
Kings' ran 42 times for 308
yards, including touchdown
runs of 65 and 39 yards.
Those runs were made by
the Lions' all-everything senior
Myles Jackson, who ran 20
times for 165 yards and four
touchdowns. Jackson also
plays defensive back and even
serves as both the Lions' place
kicker and punter.
"We knew what he was like
coming in; he's quick and has
shifty moves," Martin said.
"He's put up some impressive
numbers over the last two
years."
The Dolphins started the
game well and Martin said he
could point to one play that
deflated the team's confidence
very early.
Marathon started with a
first-down completion from
sophomore quarterback Nyran
Ross to senior wide receiver
Daniel Perry. Then on a sec-
ond-and-nine play, sophomore
running back A.J. Freeman
exploded through a hole for a
60-yard gain that was called
back on a holding penalty.

the half, as Jackson scored his
third touchdown of the half on
a 39-yard run with just four
seconds remaining.
The Dolphins entered the
half down 27-0 and were
unable to threaten the Lions in
the second half.
Martin said the team had a
bad game against a good team,
but should be proud of its
accomplishments this season.
"We beat Coral Shores and
Key West; we won our district
and finished seventh in the
state in our class," he said. The
team finished 7-4 on the sea-

Martin said.
The drive stalled and
Marathon was able to hold the
Lions on their ensuing posses-
sion. But the tide began to turn
when punter Jamie Holding's
kick was blocked, giving the
Lions a very short field to work
with. Jackson would score the
-Lions' first touchdown two
plays later.
After the Dolphins' subse-
quent drive stalled, Holding
was hurried and punted low
into the line, again giving the
Lions a short field. The Lions
wasted no time as Jackson
scored a long touchdown on
their first play to take a 14-0
lead early in the second quarter.
"He was taking a little too
long back,there and just didn't
get them off quick enough.
He's been solid all year,"
Martin said of his senior
punter.

Fins, Cane run out of time at state meet


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon High School
girls' cross-country team ran its
final race of the season Saturday
at the Class 1A state champi-
onship meet at Little Everglades
Ranch in Dade City.
The Dolphins finished 21st
out of 24 teams overall, but coach
Amy Urban said the important
thing was the team has now expe-
rienced that competitive environ-
ment and will be hungry to


return.
"Our team was definitely the
youngest of anyone there. It was
a good experience for them for
next year," Urban said.
"Hopefully they can be competi-
tive instead of learning" what it's
like. Four freshmen and three
seventh-graders ran for the
Dolphins.
Seventh-grade standout
Naomi Valerdi, coming off a vic-
tory at the team's regional meet,


Academy at
In a match-up of contrasting Wednesday al
styles, the Key West High Field in Miam
School girls' soccer team defeat-
ed previously unbeaten St.
Brendan, 3-2, Saturday after-
noon in Miami.
With five minutes to play, Does you
Rachel Rivet deflected Scarlett
Williams' comer kick into the At K
net with her shoulder to give the
Conchs the winning goal,in the
District 16-4A game.
It was the fourth consecutive
victory without'a loss in league
play for the Conchs, who
improved to 4-3 overall and
bounced back from a loss to
Coral Shores in their previous
game.
"Rachel powered, through a
mass of players in front of the
goal," Key West coach Scott
Paul said. "She is becoming a
very effective player for us."
After St. Brendan scored
first, Kara Haack tied the game, Open a Bus
1-1, with her llth goal of the Hi Yield Ch
season.
Both teams scored in the final
five minutes of the half. Jasmine
Jones made it 2-1 after taking a
through ball from Haack, but the
Sabres came back to tie the score
when sweeper Monica Bertram
couldn't clear a ball that had
rebounded off the crossbar.
In the second half, St.
Brendan tried to break through
by taking advantage of its sprint-
ing forwards, while the Conchs
stuck to their emphasis on ball
control and player movement.
Paul praised Bertram's steady
defensive'play and the second-
half aggressiveness of goalie Liz
Patrocky. *Annual Percentage Yield (I

Urban said she told the run-
ners going in they would be fac-
ing stiff competition. Holy
Trinity Academy junior Kayla
Hale posted a winning time of
17:35.
"I had a reality-check meeting
to let them know they were going
against a higher class of runners
than they had run against so far,"
Urban said. "Four of them got
personal records, so they didn't
run bad."
Urban said she told Valerdi,
who has had a tendency to try to


stay at the head of the pack, to
pace herself in the race. She did
just that in the regional meet
before increasing her pace for the
last three-quarters of a mile.
Urban said the state meet was
much faster and that Valerdi
might have become discouraged
in the race.
"I saw her in the beginning
and she was with the top 10 and
by the end she was very mad. I
told her, 'You come in and always
win, but you can't always expect
to be the fastest,"' she said.
Urban said Valerdi, still very
young, will learn in time what it
takes to compete at that level. She
said she looks forward to work-
ing with her and the entire team
in preparation for next year.
However, changes will be
made including longer, harder
practices and possibly the forma-
tion of a junior varsity team as


well.
"We're starting our training in
the summer and the top runners
are going to be doing a lot harder
practices to get ready. If you want
to work hard, you can be on the
varsity," Urban said.

Boban gets 40th
Coral Shores senior runner
Tyler Boban finished in the top
quarter of the cross-country field
at the state Class 2A Meet, held
Friday.
Boban ran a time of 17 min-
utes, 19 seconds over the 5-kilo-
meter course in Dade City.
He finished 40th in the field of
183 runners who qualified at
regional meets.

Fins' Friedman

nets 39 points


But the Dolphins
fall to the
Warriors Friday
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com
The Marathon High School
boys' basketball team got off to
a fast start against Westminster
Christian School Friday, but
coach Kevin Freeman said the
team eventually succumbed to
the Warriors' pressure defense
and lost, 68-64.
Senior: Blake Friedman had
another, huge game for the
Dolphins,i scoring 39 points to
go along with six rebounds, two
assists and two steals. Friedman
carried the Dolphins, who
dressed only seven players for
each of their preseason games
over the weekend.
Freeman said Friedman has
progressed as a.player over the
years, but has made tremendous
improvements for his final year.
"He's worked so hard. This is
the biggest jump he's made in all
the other years combined,"
Freeman said. "He's going to the
basket a lot stronger than he did
last year."
Freeman said he expects as
many as five players to join the
team now that the school's foot-
ball season is over.
The Dolphins jumped out to a
16-6 lead over their district
rivals Friday, thanks to four
Friedman three-pointers.
Freeman said the team was mov-
ing the ball well and getting
open looks at the basket.
But when the Warriors began
to implement a full-court press
defense in the second quarter,
Freeman said the lead began to


'.'
dwindle. They managed to retain
a slim lead at the half, thanks
mainly to an 11-point quarter
from eighth-grade big man
Dwayne Ellis.
Freeman said the Warriors'
pressure continued to rattle the
Dolphins in the second half.
"We got rushed and impatient
because of the press. If we broke
[it] we would force a shot and
not set up the offense," he said.
"We were getting out of sorts
and couldn't keep our compo-
sure."
Marathon hung around and
eventually took a three-point
lead in the final quarter after a
Friedman layup, but crucial
turnovers led to easy Warrior
baskets and they pulled away in
the end.
Freeman said he was proud of
the way the team hung in the
game, especially with a short
bench.
"I was disappointed with the
way we handled the pressure,
but we kept battling back and
hustling. Once we have every-
one back from football we'll be
fine; we only had seven players
and they were getting tired,"
Freeman said.
The Dolphins (1-1 in the pre-
season) begin their regular sea-
son Nov. 27 with a visit to
Miami Country Day at 5:30 p.m.
before hosting Key West Nov.
28 at 7 p.m.

Winless Conchs host Gulliver


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Key West High boys' soccer
coach Jason Clifford set up a
classroom of sorts Saturday
.morning along the school field's
far benchless sideline where the
smell is of the sea.
It was halftime, and the
Conchs trailed Pembroke Pines
Charter, 1-0, the goal coming on
a late penalty kick.
Clifford began to give a lesson
on defensive positioning.
"Your center of gravity should
be low," he said, "guarding"
sophomore Tyler Lee. "Get low,
be strong."
Clifford's teaching abilities
will be tested this season because
ilwie has so many young players.
Saturday's roster, depleted by
injuries, listed two seniors, a jun-
ior, 12 sophomores and six fresh-
men.
"We have three guys who
have only been playing soccer six
months," he said later. One of the
newcomers is Phillip Young, a
quarterback on the football team.


S i:i


But Clifford, who kept bounc-
ing a soccer ball off his head ("I
used to be really good"), was-
optimistic. "I'm not unhappy," he
said. "We're playing a year-round
team that has 26 guys."
Despite his halftime plea -
"Don't let this game key away,
please" the Conchs gave up
four late goals and lost, 5-1.
Wherden Charles scored the Key
West goal.

in the game after getting a second
yellow card for elbowing,
Clifford called him over for some
quiet advice. "You've got to be
smarter," the coach said, as they
sat side by side on the edge of the
running track, their backs to the
mangroves.
The defeat dropped the

Stadium, to 0-6. They play at
Gulliver Prep at 4 p.m. today.


the right side of the goal and
DeFillips ran it down and
kicked it in from a near impos-
sible angle over the goalie's
head.
"It looked more like a
[crossing ball], I never asked
him," Murphy joked of the
play.
The Falcons got on the
board later in the half after net-
ting a crossing ball by Hegland
and the game went into the half
tied 1-1.
"When we went into half 1-
1, they were shocked. I think
they're starting to realize they
can compete," Murphy said.
The game went back and
forth in the second half, while
Hegland continued to make
spectacular stops.
At one point, Hegland made
a sprawling save on a point-
blank shot from within 10
yards and somehow-got a hand
on the rebound while on his
back. Later in the half, he saved
a penalty kick attempt to pre-
serve the tie for the Dolphins.
Hegland was humble about
his play following the game.
"My defense did a good job
getting it out of there. I was on
the ground and it was just reac-
tion," he said.
The team improved to 2-1-1
and will not play again until a
Nov. 27 home game against
Key West High School.
In the nightcap, the girls
defeated a game Island
Christian School squad, 4-3.
The Lady Eagles got on the
board first after goalie Julietta
Pezzela bobbled a save that
was then kicked in for a 1-0
lead.
But the Dolphins controlled
the pace of the game and sev-
enth-grader Jasmine DeLacruse
scored three consecutive goals
to give the Dolphins a 3-1 lead.
Taylor Konrath would add a
goal to build a three-goal cush-
ion for Marathon.
The Lady Eagles responded
strongly in the second half and
drew within one goal, but were
unable to complete the come-
back.
Marathon has now won four
consecutive games and sits at
4-2 overall.

It might be time to break up
both the Marathon High School
boys' and girls' soccer pro-
grams, as both teams turned in
strong performances against
quality opponents Friday at the
Marathon Community Park.
The girls defeated Island
Christian School, 4-3, in the
late game, while the boys tied,
1-1, against a strong Palmer
Trinity School squad.
In the early game, goalie Jay
Hegland single-handedly kept
the Dolphins -in the game by
making numerous saves.
"Jay had another unbeliev-
able game. He's the reason why
we've been successful so far,"
Dolphin coach Jim Murphy
said. "He's starting to get more
vocal and control the defense,
which is good."
Murphy said the team
showed confidence and compo-
sure against by far their tough-
est matchup of the year so far.
The team has been working on
ball movement, as opposed to
relying on through balls, and it
finally began to show Friday
against the Falcons.
"We definitely had the ball
at least 50 percent of the time,
which is also a relief to Jay,"
Murphy said. The team was
also" without starters Sean
O'Connor and Danny Valerdi.
The Dolphins got on the
board first on a Matt DeFillips
goal off a throw in. The throw
in went toward the back line on

Keys Fishing


Offshore
Capt. Paul Johnson on the
Reef Runner from Whale
Harbor Marina in Islamorada
took a ride out to the Hump
and found a good bite of
blacklin tuna. His anglers
caught 10 tuna and then
trolled back into the reet to
finish out their day.

Reef
Capt. Kerry "ZilJa" Price
on the Heidi Bab\ from
Whale Harbor had a banner
day on the yello tail snap-
per recently. Price also had
his clients do battle with a
few black grouper and the
gang put two n the box
i...ong with the snapper.
Sailfish action is good
again this %Neek. \ ith north-
east w mnds blow ing and the
water on the reef's edge a
pretty blue. Capt. Rob
Corradi on the So/utern
Conifort released multiple
sails this week on two trips.

Gulf, bay
Capt. Lou Brubaker ran
out into the gulf and sat
down on a shallow wreck.
After more than an hour with
not much to show. things
changed. A mass of brown
appeared 30 feet off the side
of the boat it w as a school
of cobia and when the salt
spray cleared, the tally was
seven caught %with all but one
released. They ranged from
15 to 20 pounds.

Flats, backcountry
Early in the past week.
the action was good in the
Flamingo area, as the tide
was low. exposing the flats
most of the day. But as the
week progressed, the flats
flooded and allowed the fish
,_to spread out beyond the
reach of most anglers.
The snook bite was good.
but most of the fish were on
the small side. There were
some redfish and drum in the
mix.
The water temperature is
hovering around 71 degrees,
which is just nght for most
species.

Put on y

The sailfish are here right on
cue. The first mighty blow from
the north east and they show up
like it was scripted on the TDC
Web site.
tapt. Brian Cone on the
Contagious out of Robbie's
Marina in Islamorada was fishing
Friday in 20-knot winds in about
100 feet of water and hooked a
sail while we were yammering on
the radio show.
Capt. Brice Barr on the
Double Down from charterboat
row at the Garrison Bight Key
West has been having great suc-
cess in shallow water with sail-
fish.
And on any given day on the
Sadowski Causeway in Key
Colony Beach, you can see from
three to half a dozen sailfish flags
flying upside down at the city
dock compliments of-the Main
Attraction fleet (each flag repre-
sents a catch and release. And to
our tourist friends, no, the mate
didn't hang it the wrong way;
that's the way they're hung).
The early-season bite of sail-
fish is, as they say, right on track.
Last year's season fell flat of sev-
eral captains' expectations. If
there are signs of good times
ahead, I'd say it is the amount of
bait on the reef all up and down
the Keys.
The springs of 2005 and 2006
were exceptional years until we
had a drop-off in this past spring.
The reason? Very little bait on the
reef. If the bait is there, these
pelagics will stay and be more
comfortable. More comfortable
fish means fish more apt to take
hang around and take a bait.
Even though the season has


our


Begun, the
official
start of sail-


comes the
goo weekend of
Nov. 29
S with the
kickoff of
the 44th
annual
Islamorada
Sailfish
Cal Sutphin T o u r -
nament.
There are so many sail toura-
ments planned, there's not space
to list them all. But here are some
good examples.
In Key Largo Jan. 4, the 12th
annual Key Largo Sailfish
Challenge starts. The two-day
tournament draws the finest from
the Upper Keys and Miami to
compete in waters adjacent to
Key Largo.
Why? Waters from Key Largo
to Miami are an easy run for the
new breed of competitors running
in their triple-engine-powered
rocket sleds built for going to
where the hot bite is, distance be
damned.
As for the Islamorada Sailfish
Tournament, this is what I like to
refer to as the working man's sail-
fish tournament. It won't break
the purse to get into but there are
a lot of bragging rights associated
with it. Plus, this tournament is a
must for any team competing in
the Gold Cup.
The third leg of the Gold Cup
is the Cheeca Presidential Sailfish


team wins all three of the Gold
Cup tournaments, call Capt.
Charlie Scoble from the old How
'Bout It out of Bud 'n Mary's in
Islamorada and ask him.
Moving to my town of
Marathon, Feb. 29 brings the
Leon Shell Tournament, which is
the new up and comer of sailfish
tournaments. The event itself is
not new, but new faces have
brought an air of excitement as
well as more money.
Let's bottom line it for every-
one: The money brings the fisher-
men. I'd like to think a worthy
cause will bring anglers down
from Miami and up from Key
West, but unfortunately, good will
doesn't pay the fuel bill.
The organizers of the Leon
Shell in Key Colony Beach real-
ize that and have made it now
worthwhile a $25,000 grand
prize for the rest of the Keys
(and Miami) to take notice.
April 15 brings another year of
the World Sailfish Championship
to Key West. This is the closest the
Keys will be to having a Vegas
feel rolled into a fishing toura-
ment. Glitz, glamour, stars, and
moola lots and lots of moola.
This tournament captures the
world's attention on what had
only been known to locals that
Key West has world-class sail-
fishing. Maybe if Jimmy Buffett
waxed poetic about watching the
sunset over a free-jumping sail,
we could have started this tourna-
ment 25 years earlier.

Bay is best but not the only place


Macks, grouper
and even bluefish
are in shallows
The temperatures may have
cooled, but not the fishing.
If you haven't had the oppor-
tunity to go fishing the past week
or so, you are really missing
some of the best action we've had
here in some time. In all of the
venues, there have been good
catches and, as usual, some better
than others are. But in the overall
picture, it has been one heck of a
time on the water.
Reports from both sides of the
islands as well as personal obser-
vations fromrrecent trips tell sto-
ries of times when you just about
can't put the rod down to get a
drink. Now that's fishing!
The best area has been the bay.
With some days a little too windy
for most to venture anywhere
else, the bay has been the best
option and has not disappointed
too many lately.
The mackerel have become
more aggressive and some of them
exceed 10 pounds. Along with the
macks are snapper, red grouper,
gag grouper, troit and an unusual
number of redfish and bluefish. I
had one report of a couple of red-
fish more than 30 pounds.
It has not been uncommon to
limit out on snapper around the
shallower waters in the mornings
and venture out to the 9- to 12-
foot depths in the tall grass bot-
tom to have your way with the
mackerel. On light tackle, the
mackerel that are here now can
make for the time of your life:
It doesn't take a lot of skill to
hook one, as they are so aggres-
sive. The problem is to keep them
on, as their cousins have a habit
of cutting another off.
If you go, take lots of wire
tackle or those good extra-long
shank hooks (subliminal sales

There is no seminar this week
at the World Class Angler. We
will resume them Nov. 29 and
continue through April.
I hope all of you enjoy your
-turkey (the leg and wing bones
are good snapper bait.) But in all
likelihood, by Sunday you'll
want to catch some fish just so
you don't have to eat another
turkey sandwich.

Capt. Dave Navarro owns the
World Class Angler in Marathon
and captains the charter boat
'Dave's Dream.'


minute, you will understand why
the bridge channels have so many
fish. When the waters flow with
the current in the bay or ocean, it
is a wide body of water moving
around.
As this water approaches the
string of islands we live on, it is
funneled into the openings of the
bridge channels. This causes the
bait fish as well as the following
predators to concentrate in' a
much smaller area, which in turn
increases the amount of fish per
cubic foot of water.
Plus, many predators hang
around these channels for that
very reason. Why go chasing bait
all over when it will come flow-
ing right to them?
Beyond the bridges in Hawk
Channel, the action has been
quite good for nice grouper and
muttons. Drifting with live
shrimp has been productive for
hogfish and other snappers. Of
course, there are plenty of grunts
to go around but you may be sur-
prised by a real big porgy. They
have been around for a few
weeks now.
On the reef, the action has
been better in the shallower
waters than the deep drop-off.
Yellowtail have been plentiful in
the 30- to 50-foot depths while
somewhat scarce at times in the
deeper waters. Not that you will
catch a ton of flags in the shal-
lower depths, but you will have
enough good keepers for dinner
so you don't have to go to the
store on your way home to save
face.
Mackerel action here, too, has
been good. Some kings are in this
depth and with the majority just
offshore in the 90-foot-plus
depths.
Sailfish have been noted
throughout the Middle and Upper
Keys in the 100- to 300-foot
range. The action varies from day
to day but for the most part, hav-
ing a couple of shots should be

Open Letter to the Keys Community
From Karen Sharp, President & CEO


Local,
Financially Strong,
Safe & Secure!


Dear Keys Neighbors,


Reading the newspaper or watching the news, one may wonder how the
challenging economy is affecting the Keys and more specifically the only locally
owned and operated Keyswide bank left in Monroe County.
The Board of Directors and I want to assure our communities that First State Bank
of the Florida Keys remains financially strong, stable, secure and well positioned,
not only to meet any economic challenges, but to prosper.
For over 50 years First State Bank has thrived through a combination of managed
growth, prudent business decisions, responsible lending practices, a remarkable
team of experienced professionals and a knowledgeable local Board of
Directors with a dedicated focus in Monroe County.
Our balance sheet remains strong, we're well capitalized and with 200 dedicated
local employees, we are prepared to help Keys residents while continuing our
community service leadership through civic donations; volunteers, support of
local schools, non-profits and community events.
First State Bank of the Florida Keys is an important part of the fabric of Keys life
and we encourage all residents to experience, first hand, the convenience of our
13 Keyswide branches, wide network of ATMs, full service banking, local lending,
innovative products and a dedication to old-fashioned personalized customer
service.
As we meet changes and challenges in the economy, First State Bank of the
Florida Keys will be here, as it has been since 1955, to support the changing
financial needs and goals of our residents while supporting the communities
where we live, work and play.
