Search begins

After a \ear of giving up-
and-do n performance evalua-
tons. I laimorada's village coun-
cil decided to terminate Village
M;Iaiager Gar, Word's contract
on Jan. 31.
- On Thursday, the council
voted 3-2 to end Word's tenure
at the end of January 2008
whether the village has a new
manager then or not.
In October, the council voted
4-1 not to renew Word's con-
tract, which expires Dec. 31.
The council agreed to employ
him without a contract until he
found a new job or the council
hired a new village manager.
At Thursday's meeting
Councilman Don Achenberg
proposed setting Word's depar-
ture date.
"What we're looking at is a
lame duck manager at $18,000 a
month" in salary and benefits,
Achenberg said.

Local attorney Richard Warner bicycled his way over the Boot Key Bridge this week as a
result of traffic restrictions put in place by the city of Marathon. Warner was doing interviews
at the Keys Radio Group station on the island. The bridge was closed to traffic following a
Department of Transportation letter declaring the bridge a hazard.

Beginning Monday morning,
the Boot Key Bridge will be
closed to traffic of any kind -


even pedestrian and bicycle.
The city of Marathon
received a letter Nov. 19 from
the state Department of Trans-
portation stating, "Upon careful
examination of photos taken,
performing calculations which
include comparisons between
original design and present state
of conditions; we have conclud-


ed that the structure is a hazard
to the motoring public and
therefore should be closed until
further notice."
Since receiving the letter, the
city has placed barriers in front
of the road leading to the bridge
and has been restricting traffic
to Boot Key.
"Traffic is restricted to those

110 affordable units proposed


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Monroe County could be
looking at more than 100 new
affordable units, if a proposal
makes the early cut Tuesday.
The Lakeview Gardens devel-
opment at mile marker 106 is up
for consideration by the county
Development Review
Committee.
The committee convenes at 1
p.m. at the Marathon Govern-
ment Center.
Northstar Resort Enterprises
is looking to develop the former
Florida Key RV Park into 110
deed-restricted affordable hous-
ing units for sale to residents
who qualify under the county's
moderate income guidelines.
"The owners want to do an
affordable project," said attor-
ney Joel Reed, who represents
Northstar, "and there's a need
for it."
The 10-plus-acre parcel pre-
viously contained 126 RV
spaces and 13 permanent


mobile homes. The transient
building rights have been
moved off-site to provide the
necessary permits to construct a
138-room hotel on other
Northstar property.
In order to build the afford-
able units, the county would
need to pass on 110 affordable
housing allocations.
In his proposal, Reed points
out that the project will provide
housing for middle-income Key
Largo residents. With a popula-
tion of close to 12,000, he says,
Key Largo needs as many as
1,000 affordable units.
"As further evidence of the
need for quality affordable
housing in Key Largo," Reed
wrote in the proposal, "there
[are] only 20 units for sale
below $259,000, which is the
cutoff for affordable units up to
two bedrooms."
Affordable housing advocate
and developer Ed Swift has
long pointed out the dearth of


mid-range housing, especially
units for sale rather than rentals.
His company is in the middle of
constructing 129 moderate
income homes that will sell in
the range of $200,000. But
those are Lower Keys projects.
Affordable housing in the
Upper Keys has been primarily
for low- and very low-income
families.
If approved by the DRC, the
plan.will still have to go before
the county Planning Com-
mission and eventually the
County Commission. Reed says
he expects it to" be on the
Planning Commission agenda
for January.
"This is a good fit," he said.
"The owner would like to begin
as soon as they can."
Under the proposal, 19 of the
110 units would be reserved for
workforce housing for the near-
by Northstar Hotel property.
Plans also include a club-
house and day care for home-
owners.

Jim Roberts
served 11 years
in top job
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Former Monroe County
Administrator Jim Roberts says
his phone has been ringing off the
hook for days ever since his
name came up as a possible
replacement for current
Administrator Tom Willi. That is,
if the County Commission votes
Wednesday to terminate Willi's
contract.
"It's not a question of needing
a job," Roberts told the Keynoter
Thursday. "But you have to miss
the Keys. I got attached to it
down there."
Roberts headed the county
staff for 11 years, leaving in 2004
and moving to New Jersey.
The commission will be
deciding on Willi's future during
a special meeting at the Harvey
Government Center in Key West,
starting at 10 a.m. Commissioner
Dixie Spehar called the meeting
to end Willi's contract due to


expire next October without
cause.
Roberts called Commissioner
George Neugent Tuesday, putting
out feelers.
"From what I'm hearing, there
are some financial concerns,"
Roberts said. "This is nothing
more than an offer to get the
county back on a good footing."
Last January County Clerk
Danny Kolhage sent a letter to
Willi warning that spending in the
county could dry up reserves by
the end of the fiscal year. Willi
immediately implemented freezes
across the board, warding off any
disasters, but statewide tax
reform has put county govern-
ment in a tight spot for spending.
"The key here is the relation-
ship between the County
Commission and the administra-
tor," Roberts said. "I'm not into
interposing in that relationship,
and it would be inappropriate for
me to comment on it. This is
nothing more than an offer, if [the
county] needs me for a year to get
back on [its] feet, I can help out."
Roberts has been consulting in
New Jersey.


Frederick interim?


WILL / From I

sion will use to end Willi's con-
tract would have his employment
ending on Jan. 4. However, it
stipulates Willi "immediately
turn over all county owned
and/or leased property in his pos-
session..." within 24 hours.
"Mr. Willi is directed that, for
the next 30 days, he is to report to
work at his home and be avail-
able to consult by telephone from
8 a.m. until 6 p.m..."
Willi was hesitant to comment
on the terms of his release.
However, he stands by his per-
formance with the county over
the past three yeats.
"I was hired as a change
agent," he said during a televised
interview on Keynoter News
aired Wednesday. "I was given
some big demands to meet. I was
given my marching order by the
majority of the commission. My
*^ .St^.t t ~~i~ i 311^ 1

goal and task in life is to com-
plete those goals given to me and
I think I've done that very well."
Spehar is recommending that
Deputy Administrator Debbie
Frederick be appointed to act in
Willi's stead starting on
Wednesday. She points out that
Frederick has served in her cur-
rent role for two years and
worked closely with Roberts for
nine years prior to that.
The resolution also authorizes
County Attorney Suzanne Hutton
to pay Willi's 9-month severance
package. According to a memo
from Spehar's office introducing
the resolution that fires Willi, that
package entitles him to $124,220
plus benefits for the same 9-
month period. Hutton has esti-
mated the total to range some-
where between $215,000 and
$265,000, but she won't have a
final figure, until the Wednesday
meeting, she says.

who have a legal and legitimate
reason to be on the island. We
don't want people going over
there just sightseeing," said C.J.
Geotis, deputy city manager.
A group of 25 commercial
fishermen and employees of the
Keys Radio Group account for
the majority of traffic on and off
the island.
"If the city is allowed to close
the bridge, it will deprive us of
an important property right and
we will seek any legal recourse
available to us," said Keys Radio
Group owner Joe Nascone.
"There is no question that there
will be legal ramifications; not a
doubt in my mind."
Nascone said he is concerned
the city could be-potentially
endangering workers by cutting
off transportation to the island.
"You cut off the fire depart-
ment and medical treatment; any
emergencies and you're in deep
trouble," he said. "There are
some severe consequences to
what they're doing."
But Geotis said the city's
main concern is the safety of all
its residents.
"I know it's going to be an
inconvenience, but at this point it
is a safety issue. We don't want
someone getting hurt on the
bridge," Geotis said. "We're fortu-
nate the city of Marathon is doing
something with this bridge before
it falls and somebody gets hurt."
Nascone said he feels issues
with the bridge should have been
addressed before it came to this
point.
The bridge has been a topic of
much debate lately, as the city
wrangles over whether to spend
upwards of $7 million for its
repair. The option has been pre-
sented to simply remove the
draw portion of the bridge at a
cost of $800,000.
In the meantime, the city is
negotiating with Smorgasboat
owner Chris Boyle to provide
scheduled water-taxi service.
Nascone said his employees
will make do with whatever
transportation is provided.
"Whatever it takes to get it
done," he said.
Geotis said staff will present
council with a more solid plan at
its Dec. 11 meeting. For more
information. call 289-4130.

Keys Opinion


Some radical surgery

needed for tax reform

A plan to swap higher sales taxes to help reduce property tax
burdens may be resurrected.
A member of the state's Taxation and Budget Reform
Commission was quoted in Friday's Miami Herald as saying
that idea has much merit.
Carlos Lacasa, a former state legislator, sits on the commis-
sion, which will have a big say in any long-lasting tax reform in
Florida's future.
His idea parallels a similar one floated earlier this year in the
Legislature by House Speaker Marco Rubio, who has been crit-
ical of what lawmakers accomplished this year on tax reform.
Lacasa told the Herald he thinks an approach that trades larg-
er property tax savings for a penny increase in the sales tax -
and both for a limited period could break the logjam that has
developed over taxes.
He's quoted as saying that "the big picture here is that the tax
structure of Florida, especially as it relates to schools, has to be
revisited."
Under his proposal, every homeowner would get a tax exemp-
tion worth half of their property's market value.
The hit to Florida's schools, which are largely funded through
property taxes, would be an estimated $12 billion. That's where
the sales tax idea arises.
A one-cent tax across the board would cover that shortfall,
according to Lacasa, and would give the Legislature time to fig-
ure a major overhaul of Florida's tax system, not just a band-aid
approach.
His is the second major tax-revision idea to surface from the
Commission, which meets only once every two decades.
The first plan to gain widespread notice came from former
John McKay, a well-respected veteran lawmaker and former
Senate President.
His idea is to reduce billions in sales tax exemptions by nine
percent, which would in turn reduce property taxes by as.
much as 40 percent.
This approach would target some fat-cat industries that have
been protected for years. The most notable example always cited
involves the tax exemption in place for skybox rentals by the
state's major league sports teams.
Another favorite from the St. Petersburg Times: "Why should
dog food be taxed but not ostrich feed?"
Indeed.
What makes ideas like McKay's and Lacasa's so important is
the realization that the Jan. 29 voter referendum cobbled togeth-
er by a quarreling Legislature this year isn't the answer to our
problem.
Florida has the second-most regressive tax system in the
nation.
The time for Band Aid fixes is over. Looks like it's time for
major surgery.

Key West recycling fair was huge success


EDITOR:
On behalf of GLEE's R4 Team, we would
like to thank everyone who participated in mak-
ing the first Key West Recycling Fair Nov. 17 a
great success.
The attendance of nearly 400 people on a
busy Saturday showed the community's enthusi-
asm for learning and practicing the 4 Rs of
reduce, reuse, recycle and rot (compost.)
Two hundred recycling bins were given'away
in the first hour, leaving plenty of people on the
waiting list for bins. Nearly 5,000 pounds of e-
waste was collected and kept out of the landfill.
Jimmy Wray and friends juggled with batons
made of recycled materials. High-schoolers
demonstrated the dos and don't of recycling.
Kim Gabel showed people how worms turn
garbage into beautiful compost. Chris Belland
encouraged all to Love Your Island and elimi-
nate Styrofoam. Rock Solomon and Madek
rocked the stage with the 3Rs. The Garbage
People Theater sang about the good guys win-
ning over pollution and garbage.
Public luminaries including Mayor Morgan
McPherson, City Manager Jim Scholl, schools
Superintendent Randy Acevedo and state Rep.
Ron Saunders all showed up to lend their sup-
port and speak in favor of a greener Key West
with less waste, more recycling and better pro-
tection of our precious environment.


We now have public and private pledges to
do a much better job and improve our paltry rate
of 6 percent recycling. It's up to all of us to
make recycling a part of our daily routine, to
encourage others to do it and to insist that the
system make recycling accessible and conven-
ient for all for single-family residents, multi-
family and public housing facilities, businesses
and tourists alike. And especially in our schools,
where dedicated teachers and staff have a great
opportunity to lead by example for the next gen-
eration that will inherit the values we instill in
them.
It is gratifying to know that community spirit
for doing the right thing is alive and .well in Key
West.
Our sincere thanks to our co-hosts, the city of
Key West and Waste Management; to the very
generous sponsors and volunteers who con-
tributed time, talent and treasure; and to all the
folks who came out to support the 4 Rs.
Together, we can change the world, one alu-
minum can at a time. See you next year.

Note to Di Gennaro: 'Listen to the people'


EDITOR:
The "small group of people" Monroe County
Commissioner Mario Di Genarro refers to are
all over Monroe County, and are perhaps a
majority.
In a public opinion poll, the residents of
Monroe County expressed their opinion against
high-rises by 82 percent. The citizens of Key
West, in their godd sense, voted down high-rises
2-1 in a recent referendum.
We don't want a Miami Boulevard in the
Keys. Key West has complete and total build-
out; it can't plan for anything except to go high-
er.
The residents want reasonable and control-
lable development, not rampant overdevelop-
ment. The development we need is development
that respects the fact that we are the third largest
reef tract in the world and are of critical state
concern.
Groups all over the county, including the

Cub Scouts say thanks
EDITOR:
Cub Scout Pack 901 from Marathon would
like to thank the community for supporting our
recent popcorn sale.
It would not have been such a success with-
out the generosity of our community. Because of
your contributions, our pack will have more
opportunities to participate in Cub Scout activi-
ties.
Again, thank you for supporting Pack 901.

Island of Key Largo Federation of Home
Owners Association, want affordable housing
and wastewater, as reflected in our pressure and
constant demands before the Planning
Commission and the of County Commission.
We need assistance, not resistance, to a
dream for Monroe County of controllable
growth and protection of the environment.
Di Gennaro's colloquialism ofus common
folk going back to the old days of wearing san-
dals and peeing in the mangroves was both sim-
ple and direct. In. modem terms, it should have
said, "We don't want developmental interests
peeing on bur mangroves.. That's a no-no."

The giving spirit of Keys residents

City delays will cost everyone


EDITOR:
At the Nov. 13 Marathon City
Council meeting, they passed a reso-
lution covering a construction con-
tract for the Area 4 and 6 wastewater
treatment plants. As with the previ-
ous collection system contract, this
one included a 180-day delay clause
for Area 6.
Events have passed by this grant-
funding strategy, as I tried to explain
to council. The efforts for Marathon
are now being coordinated at county
level, representing all of the Keys'
needs. Nothing we do in Marathon
will add any pressure on Tallahassee
or D.C.
Only Councilman Mike Cinque
responded, recognizing that we need
to take a fresh look at the delay strat-
egy in light of the importance of
sewering the whole city by July 1,
2010. We need such representatives
able to recognize changed circum-
stances and alter their position
responsibly on critical issues, able to
anticipate problems, be proactive
rather than reactive, stay ahead of the
ball. We are not seeing that kind of
leadership on the sewer project and
cannot afford other council members
a prolonged learning curve. We don't
have the time.
What should council do? Pass a
resolution removing the 180-day
delay clauses from both contracts so
areas 4 and 6 can both go forward


immediately; direct the city staff and
Weiler Engineering to accelerate
Area 5 planning and permitting; and
direct staff to plan and apply for the
necessary short-term loans needed to
complete Marathon's project without
further grants. We taxpayers will
have to pay the extra loan interest
until grant funding comes through.
Lurking in the background is the
likelihood of lawsuits against the city
if Marathon fails to provide
advanced wastewater treatment by
the deadline, in 31 months. Residents
and businesses will be justly entitled
to compensation for stiff fines, clos-
ings, etc., thatwill be applied. But
the city is just our agent and holds
and dispenses our money. We tax-
payers will pay. And who will be
-responsible and accountable? People
who may very well no longer be sit-
ting on the council.
Let the five council members
know what you want them to do.
They obviously need direction from
more than one concerned citizen.
Fred Endemann
Marathon

Editor's note: The County
Commission is charged with main-
taining countywide information
about sewer projects, but the local
sewer authorities remain in control
of their specific projects.


Look for little treasures,


especially this time of year


Speaking with a colleague this week,
she lamented the lack of Christmas feel
this year, citing a too-hectic schedule at
work, at home,,at play.
After many years of anticipating cele-
brations around Christmas, I've come to
the conclusion that time actually speeds
up between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Maybe it has something to do with the
mental and physical adjustments we
make coming off Daylight Saving Time?
Daylight is my clock and I generally
awaken when the sun begins to lighten
the sky regardless of what Congress has
decided about Daylight Saving Time.
This is true whether I'm in the
Keys or visiting my son and
daughter-in-law in California.
A recent trip out west
proved my theory, since I
never quite adjusted to Pacific
Coast Time, despite efforts to
follow all the tips given to
travelers who traverse multi-
ple time zones by air.
Another factor in the rush
we sometimes feel this time '
of year has to do with a
speeding up of the social cir-
cuit. Wayne I
Here in the Keys, Keynotel
September is traditionally the
slowest month of the year.
And in the old days, lots of businesses
would simply close down for September
and use that time for vacations and trips
north.
Even October absent Fantasy Fest
- has some slumbering rhythms that are
somewhat unique to the Keys scene.
Then comes November, the return of
the snowbirds and the pace quickens.
Traffic counts pick up and finding a
place to part at Publix or Winn-Dixie is a
lot harder than it was before
Thanksgiving.
For some longtime Keys residents,
Christmas also triggers a trip back north
to visit family and friends. So add trip
planning to the already long to-do list
that most of us carry around in our
heads.
If gift giving is part of your family's
custom this time of year, add the chal-
lenges of finding time for that.
Of course, shopping locally helps
reduce the hassles and the time it takes,
and you'll be surprised at the. variety of
goods and services that Keys stores
either carry or will gladly special order.
On a recent shopping trip to a


Marathon retailer, I overheard the owner
promising an elderly caller that he'd be
happy to order some hard-to-find knit-
ting thread for her even though I
know he doesn't carry that kind of mer-
chandise. But he does order from the
vendors who do supply fabric and craft
stores, so he was lending a hand.
That's the kind of giving spirit that
makes this time of year special.
As you look around, I'm sure you'll
find other examples where you work, or
where you live, at church, your civic
club, even with regulars at your favorite
watering hole.
The best way to enjoy this
holiday season is to look for
those little treasures in life,
which prove far more lasting
than the fancy-wrapped gee-
gaws that too often we fret
about under the tree.



In a related note about the
holiday season, the Christmas
Price Index has been pub-
lished by the smart marketers
/arkham at PNC Wealth Management.
Publisher Each year for the past 23
years, they've put together a
fun list of the gift items from
the Twelve Days of Christmas poem.
You know the one, "On the first day of
Christmas, my true love gave to me...."
Turns out inflation this season averages
3.1 percent for the gold rings, partridge,
pear tree, geese, pipers piping etc.
The funniest line in this year's update
comes from the labor component of this
gift list.
Quoting from the PNC release: "The
maids-a-milking on the eighth day of
Christmas, the only unskilled laborers in
the index, got a wage rise this year with
the U.S. Congress increasing the mini-
mum wage. This willtake their costs up
by 13.6 percent."
The "ladies dancing," on the other
hand, clearly a skilled labor component,
showed no price hikes this year, accord-
ing to the PNC report.
Proof that starving artists even this
time of year is not a euphemism.
So when looking for great gift ideas,
how about gift tickets to one or more of
the fine plays, musicals or holiday
recitals we have on tap.

Willi responds
to DCA on
work progress
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

County Administrator Tom
Willi sent a nine-page letter
this week to Department of
Community Affairs Secretary
Tom Pelham, a second
response to Monroe County's
failing grade on a state report
card.
"I had hoped that our first
response dated Oct. 31, 2007
would sufficiently detail the
misrepresentations of our
work to date," Willi wrote, "as
well as the progress toward
satisfying the objectives" out-
lined by the state-mandated
work program.
In September Pelham pro-
nounced the county has not
made substantial progress
toward installing countywide
sewers during the past year.
Each year the county is
assessed in what has been
called a report card in its
progress toward protecting the
Keys environment as part of
the state's oversight of the
Keys as an Area of State
Critical Concern.
Pelham's letter, sent to
Gov. Charlie Crist and the


Florida Cabinet, reports that
Monroe County has fallen
short in a number of areas,
including fundraising.
According to the report, the
county has secured only 59
percent of the $80 million in
sewer funding that county
officials agreed to come up
with in 2003.


The DCA
annual
assessment
must be
approved by
the Governor
and Cabinet.

In fact, confirmation last
week on a $20 million loan
from the state to complete the
Big Coppitt sewer project rais-
es the bar substantially.
According to Willi's letter, the
county, with that loan, will
have fulfilled 82 percent of the
funding requirements.
Willi contends that the
DCA's definition of progress
has been rewritten under the


Cancer / Disease Guard.


- .-

I-i N-


new leadership of Pelham.
"Change in the administra-
tion at DCA was the biggest
factor," he said in an interview
for Keynoter News aired
Wednesday. "We were sort of
shocked when we received the
update that showed we had not
made substantial progress."
"I want to confirm again,"
he wrote in this week's letter
to Pelham, "that my funda-
mental objection with the
department's report is not the
factual errors or misrepresen-
tations, but the departure from
the methodology prescribed
by the Governor and Cabinet
for evaluating our progress
each year."
The DCA annual assess-
ment must be approved by the
Governor and Cabinet, but it's
not on the Dec. 4 agenda.
Willi says he hopes that the
county and DCA will together
present a "finding of substan-
tial progress" in early 2008.
In early November Willi,
along with then-County
Mayor Mario Di Gennaro,
traveled to Tallahassee to
lobby for a change in Pelham's
findings.
"We went with the goal for
him to review year 10 [in the
state work program] in the
proper context," Willi said. "It
was unfair to change the
meaning at the end, after all
the work's been done."

Bus depot rezoning on commission's agenda


College Road site
now used for
waste transfer.
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The Key West City Com-
mission is expected on Tuesday
to approve rezoning the waste
transfer site on College Road to
make way for a $8.4 million bus
depot.
"The bus depot we have does-
n't have adequate capacity,"
Mayor Morgan McPherson said.
"We need space right now for
public works and office space."
McPherson said the surround-
ing property could also provide
parking spaces for recreational
vehicles and a biofuel station.
In the past, the College Road
site has been considered a prime
spot for affordable housing, but


the bus depot "wouldn't stop us
from looking at affordable hous-
ing," McPherson said.
"The total project estimate is
between $8.1[million] to $8.4
million," Key West Department
of Transportation Director Myra
Wittenberg wrote in an e-mail.
Up to $5.4 million of that
would come from Florida
Department of Transportation
and state toll revenue. Another
$3.1 million would come from
the Federal Transit Admin-
istration, and would cover the
cost of planning and architectural
work by' Chen & Associates
Engineering Inc.
The commission unanimously
supported the ordinance at its
Nov. 20 meeting, and' the
Planning Board recommended
approval.
Currently only facilities such
professional offices, parks or


community and day care centers
are allowed on that parcel If the
second reading of the ordinance
passes, that rule would change to
permit government-operated
facilities.
Dan Kolhage was the sole
commissioner to vote against the
$7.9 million Rockland Key waste
transfer facility that will replace
the Stock Island facility. That
vote was in July, and contractor
Douglas N. Higgins is expected
to complete that project in about a
year.
The project had its fair share
of opposition from residents who
argued there has to be a more
environmental friendly way to
dispose of the 59,000 tons of
garbage hauled up to Broward
County each year.
The commission meets at 6
p.m. Tuesday in Old City Hall.
Also on the agenda:
McPherson is sponsoring a
resolution to urge the Florida


Legislature to create a funding
pot that can collect revenue from
real estate transfer tax, local food
and beverage tax and a portion of
bed taxes.

Marathon adds six trailers to expanding city hall


Transition to be
complete
Dec. 15
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

It's not the one once envi-
sioned, with an accompanying
library and all the trimmings, but
the city of Marathon is in the
process of moving all their
departments into an expanded
city hall.
The city ordered six new trail-
ers from Williams Scotsman Inc.
to go along with the four already
in place at the events field
between 98th and 99th streets
oceanside. The trailers were
being set up all this week adja-
cent to the current ones.
"We'll get the electric and
plumbing done. Once all that is
tied in, we'll start moving staff


over with the least impact on the
community," City Manager Mike
Puto said, noting the holiday sea-
son is a good time to move as city
business quiets down.
According to a city release,
the move will be official by Dec.
15, and telephone and computer
service may be intermittent dur-
ing that time.
"As we do things we have to
do it correctly. It's going to take a
couple of days. Please be
patient," Puto said.
Puto said a major advantage
will be to now have both the plan-
ning and building departments
together under one roof.
"If someone needs help it'll be
easier with everyone being
together," he said. "It's much bet-
ter than what we have [now]. We
have more space to talk to the
public."
The new trailers will all be


attached and have a large open
area in the center. They are con-
nected to the original trailers by a
small wooden deck.
Puto said the city will also
have signage and is doing land-


scape work to the property as
well.
SThe trailers are being rented
from Williams Scotsman for
$3,335 monthly.
City Finance Manager Cindy


Williams

employees work
Thursday outside
city hall offices at
the events field
between 98th and

is leasing, which
will finally house
all departments
under one roof.

Lawson said With the offices at
100th Street, plus the original
trailers, the city was paying
$10,720 monthly to house staff.
They will pay $5,492 monthly for
the new facilities.

Council hires local law firm


Tom Wright
to handle
code board
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon City Council,
meeting in regular session
Tuesday, took the following
actions:
+ Approved two resolutions
dealing with the city's waste-
water project, but amended them
to include area four only. As writ-
ten, they both included area four
(Sombrero Beach Road/U.S. 1
corridor) and six (Coco Plum
Drive/U.S. 1 corridor).
One dealt with the award of a
contract to Siemens Water Tech-
nologies for the purchase of a
treatment plant for area four in an
amount not to exceed $2,326,400.
The other dealt with the purchase
of vacuum station equipment for
area four from Airvac Inc. not to
exceed $419,000.
Unanimously approved a
.resolution approving the hiring of
the law firm of Thomas D. Wright
as the attorneys for the city's code
compliance board. The contract is
not to exceed $7,500.
The city was set to award the
contract to a Coral Gables firm for
an amount not to exceed $15,000,
but Councilman Don Vasil object-
ed to paying for travel time to and


from meetings. Wrights firm was
hired within days.
Approved an ordinance
sponsored by Councilman Mike
Cinque dealing with home reno-
vations that can be done without
a permit.
The ordinance states that an
individual may remodel their sin-
gle-family home or duplex pro-
vided the total for the work does
not exceed $2,500. The city's
building official must also
approve the work in regards to
safety and health considerations.
"This basically gives the per-
son the right to remodel without
feeling they're breaking the law,"
Cinque said.
Approved an ordinance
dealing with three minor changes
to the city's land development
regulations.
City Planner Jacqulyn Walters
said with the current revisions,
the city would be submitting its
LDRs to the state Department of
Community Affairs for the third
time. The city's zoning maps
have already'been approved.
+ Heard a report from City
Attorney Jimmy Morales that the
city succeeded in having the law-
suit filed by the Grassy Key
Subdivision dismissed.
It sued the city for the right to
build on each of its 131 lots, situ-
ated on 47 acres of land. Morales
said the lots were rezoned in 1986


as sparsely settled, meaning one
house per 2 acres, not one per lot.
+ Approved an ordinance
amending the fiscal year 2007-08
budget for $12,494.
Vice Mayor Chris Bull spon-
sored the resolution, saying he
felt the skateboarding facility
requires a full-time attendant.
+ Rescheduled the grand
opening of the new fire station at
Florida Keys Marathon Airport
for 6 p.m. Dec. 10.

Economics drives the market
even when it comes to finding
creative ideas to help solve the
affordable housing crisis, said
State Rep. Ron Saunders.
Saunders, along with business
leaders and government officials,
focused on this and other issues-at
a workshop held at the Key West
Radisson.
."Economics drives every-
thing," Saunders said, citing the
disappearance of Keys trailer
parks as one example. For prop-
erty owners, he said, a trailer park
is not the "highest and best" use
of the property economically.
How property values impact
renters, not just homeowners,
was the focus for this second
workshop, which gather property
appraisers, local officials and
community leaders.
One idea explored is to offer
incentives to landlords in
exchange for guarantees they will
charge affordable rents.
Saunders says there are two
ingredients to unaffordable rent:
hiked up windstorm insurance
and rising property taxes, due to
changes in fair market-value.
And higher values become a
convenient scapegoat for ever-ris-
ing rents, community leaders said.
Assistant property appraiser
Karl Borglum told the group that
market-derived factors are used
by the Monroe property appraisers
office when doing assessments.
"The property appraisers
office-despite what you hear
down the street-knows what it's
doing," Borglum said.
He added, however that "noth-
ing is more subjective than value."
Borglum told the workshop
that changing the way Floridians
are taxed will take an amendment
to state constitution. Starting next
year, it will take 60 percent of the
vote for any amendment to pass,


thanks to tougher rules imposed
by the Florida Legislature.
The first big test of voter
appetite for tax reform comes Jan
29 when Florida voters will have
the option to pass an amendment
that, among other things, increases
homestead exemption by $25,000.
It would also establish a cap on
non-homestead properties for the
first time, similar to the 3 percent
cap voted in by the Save Our
Homes Amendment. The commer-
cial property cap, however, is on
the ballot at 10 percent per year,
which Saunders said is too high.
Another part of the Jan. 29
amendment would exempt the
school tax portion from any
impact if the higher homestead
exemption is approved by voters.
But, it remains unclear how
the Legislature will tackle the
problem of declining revenues
and balance its budget, which
they are required to do by law.
Because there's a lot of opposi-
tion to the amendment, Saunders
said, he thinks it will fail.
"Homestead has the best pro-
tection," he said of the state con-
stitutional amendment that caps
property assessment increases at
no more than 3 percent per year.
But, in the Keys, nearly two-
thirds of the homes are not home-
steaded, which means winter res-
idents who own homes here and
up north, and investors who own
properties to rent get no protec-
tion from the market forces that
impact real estate prices and
thus, assessments.
Saunders said he would like to
propose a lower cap on non-
homesteaded properties than
what'll be offered Jan. 29. That
lower cap would offer more
relief, especially to landlords.
Offering temporary deed
restrictions to property owners
was also discussed at the
Radisson workshop. The intent is

to allow appraisers to reassess
property at a temporarily lower
value tied to affordable rent lev-
els. Landlords would pay lower
property taxes, but would have to
charge less rent.
At an earlier workshop, atten-
dees said five-year deed restric-.
tions would be ideal,, but
Borglum said for a deed restric-
tion to even be worth a reassess-
ment factoring in an afford-
able designation it could be no
less than 10 years.
Borglum said most deed
restrictions now are at 50 years.
"Deed restriction is all we
have as far as incentives go,"
Borglum said.
When it comes to measuring
affordability, high prices in the
Keys skew the state averages.
Based on closed transactions
reported this year by the Realtor
multiple listing services, the aver-
age buyer paid $744,000 for a
Keys home.
But there is a glut of homes for
sale, which can affect prices.
Borglum said it will take more
than three years for every unit on
the market to be absorbed, far dif-,
ferent than the market forces at
work in 2004 and 2005.

Key West plan
On Tuesday, Key West Mayor
Morgan McPherson will sponsor
a resolution that, if passed, will
urge the Legislature to create a
dedicated funding source that
could receive revenue from bed
taxes, a real estate transfer tax
and taxes on food and beverages.
"People want lower taxes and
more services," Saunders said.
"Which is not an equation."
Saunders said other coastal
counties like Collier and Martin
are just now starting to feel a sting
comparable to Monroe County's
affordable housing crisis.
"We have a sinking boat," he
said. "But at least we have more
people in the boat."

Smoother roads ahead in Key West


Flagler could
get $1 million
in improvements
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The Key West City Com-
mission will decide Tuesday
whether to approve a plan that
would bring more than $1 million
in improvements to the Flagler
Avenue area.
The Florida Department of,
Transportation funding would
add sidewalks, curbs, proper. sig-
nage and ramps to meet require-
ments of the Americans with
Disabilities Act and provide safer
conditions for pedestrians. The
construction would occur from
White to George streets, and from
George to Duncombe streets.
"Basically, there are sidewalks
that aren't connected," said Ali


Toghiani, senior project manager
with the state DOT. "And this
would make it ADA compatible."
Along with that New Town
project is the long-awaited recon-
struction of North Roosevelt
Boulevard. State DOT recently
paved over the oceanside south-
bound lane to serve as a tempo-
rary fix to the bumpy road.
The promenade that runs along
the busy road will also be repaved
for $440,000 in state funds to give
bicyclists a smoother ride. That
won't happen until February, at
the earliest, City Engineer Roland
Flowers said.
But complete renovation of
the island's most traveled road
won't begin until 2010.
On Wednesday, representa-
tives of the Florida Department
of Transportation, South Florida
Water Management District and
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers


met with Flowers and City
Manager Jim Scholl to walk from
Eisenhower Drive to the entrance
of the island.

water district had an issue with
the proposed extension of the
North Roosevelt seawall, which
would affect seagrass, Scholl
said. The district will have to
grant an environmental permit for
the project.
Portions of North Roosevelt


will be widened by six feet,
Scholl said.
Also on Tuesday:
+ The City Commission will
discuss a resolution to pay
$15,330.60 to Charley Toppino
and Sons for work on the tempo-
rary fix. They were originally
paid $127,126, but exceeded that
amount, Flowers said. This is still
within the budgeted amount,
which was $143,375.
+ The commission will dis-
cuss the $1,044,000 from the
state for Flagler Avenue, even
though it's a city road.
"We got very lucky," Flowers
said of the state's funding.
Flowers said other upcoming
projects include federally funded
sidewalks for College Road and
Atlantic Boulevard (between
White and Bertha streets).
"If it's money, it's exciting,"
said City Commissioner Barry
Gibson, whose district includes
New Town.

By KYLE TEAL
and SAM NISSEN
kteal@keynoter.com


A top county tourism official
is under fire and could be termi-
nated this month.
Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson has requested that the
Tourist Development Council
Board discuss immediately end-
ing the contract of Harold
Wheeler, marketing director for
the TDC.
"I am requesting this as it is
time for new vision into the life
of the TDC," according to a note
submitted by McPherson, who
sits on the board.
The threadbare request does
not say what that new vision
might be. But McPherson said
Friday the way the Keys were
promoted failed to adjust with a
changing region.
"I don't think that as market-
ing director of the TDC, he's
done enough," he said. "It truly is
just time for someone who is
more innovative to bring us
where were going."
Wheeler said he has received
no warning or prior notice from
the board that they were unhappy


with his work.
"If it's a new vision he wants,
he sure hasn't come forward as to
what that new vision is," Wheeler
said Friday. "It's the (TDC) board
that sets the vision of the TDC,
and I'm here to implement that
vision."
Wheeler said he received a
contract renewal this summer,
including a raise.
"But the board has changed
since that time period," he said.
"This is obviously a personal and
political statement by the mayor."
The board will take up the
issue at its Dec. 11 meeting.
Board Chair Todd Firm said he
still believes Wheeler was doing
an "excellent job," just as well as
when he received an unprece-
dented merit raise last summer.
"The TDC has been one of the
few bright spots in county gov-
ernments," Firm said. "What's
going on now is purely politics."
Wheeler ran into trouble with
McPherson earlier this year when
the five district advisory councils
of the TDC failed to endorse
spending an additional $2 million
in TDC funds to help sink the


Vandenberg.
The DACs consider applica-
tions for allocating one-third of
the three-penny-per-dollar hotel
bed tax to various tourism proj-
ects in the five different districts.
The TDC, on which Mc
Pherson sites as mayor of Key
West, also refused to add the
additional funds.
"The county came to the
DACs asking for money, not
based on how much benefit each
district would receive but based
on how much they had to allo-
cate," Wheeler said at the time.
The DAC 1 had already
pledged $1 million from its capi-
tal funds toward the Vandenberg
as an early champion of the artifi-
cial reef project.
The Vandenberg project aims
to sink the vessel in water 144
feet deep. If sunk correctly, the
ship would create an artificial
reef reaching nearly 40-foot
depthsat its highest points.
The county already committed
$2 million to the project, with
Key West matching a $1.25 mil-
lion federal grant, bringing the
funding total to more than $5.5
million, Wheeler said.

Sewer rate hike proposal delayed


Council asks

Plantation Key residents
already hooked into
Islamorada's wastewater sys-
tem will not pay 62 percent

62 percent and borrow $250,000
from elsewhere in the budget, or
raise rates 35 percent and get an
outside loan for $1 million, to
fund soaring operation and

School board scrutinizes supplements


Pribramsky:
'Transparency
is the goal"
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbumie@keysreporter.com


Monroe School District
administrators have again found
themselves in the spotlight for
being on the receiving end of
what some say is a bloated and
unfair compensation system.
The school board on Dec. 11
will attempt to make sense of
the complicated system of sup-
plemental pay and determine
which are worthy of keeping,
which will be rolled into exist-
ing salaries and which will be
cut from the budget.
Teacher supplements, negoti-
ated by United Teachers of
Monroe and paid for jobs like
coaching or advising an after-
school group, are off-limits, at
least for 2007-08. Instead, the
meeting will likely focus on cer-
tain administrative supplements.
The decision to address sup-
plemental pay comes after a
report from the human
resources consulting firm,, the
Management Advisory Group,
recommended getting rid of all
supplements and rolling them
into employee salaries. The
school district paid $140,000
for the report, which was com-
pleted in September.
The report was not the first
to rebuke the district for exces-
sive use of supplements. In
March 2006, a $130,000, 416-
page report from Evergreen
Solutions said the district was
doling out more than $500,000
in annual supplements, which
some argue are paid to employ-
ees for executing basic job
duties.
"To me, when you hire an
administrator, they do whatever
you ask them to do," board
member John Dick said. "And
we pay them very well. I'm not
sure if we need to be paying
them for every extra little thing
that they do."
There is also criticism
among some board members
about who receives these sup-
plements and the amount they
are being paid.
As the school district's adult
education coordinator, Super-
intendent Randy Acevedo's
wife, Monique Ace\ edo.


receives the highest supplement
in the count\. which amounted
to $22.04- for 2006-0".
The superintendent. \those
2006-07 supplement totaled
$5,450. said lis \iife %\as gi'en
additional responsibilities after
the former adult education
director retired. He said the dis-
trict sa\ed mone b% splitting
the former director' duties
between t ro people and pa. ing
them v. ith supplements.
When asked if he thought
politics influence the decision to
award supplements. Dick said.
"I definitely believe it does "
"I \would hope not."
Pribramsk. said of whether pol-
itics affect supplements. "'but I
think \\hat w %,. ant to do b..
making things transparent and
easily understood is eliminate
any appearance that the\ are. I
think there's an inference of it.
but I don't hat e an\ proof of it."
Acetedo said most supple-
ments are paid because emplo\ -
ees take on responsibilities out-
side of their job descrnpton.
"Supplements %.ere derived
many \ear, ago to address


someone taking on addillonal
responsibilities to their job or
job description.'" AceVedo said
"Changes in la.\. technology.
and just -basic change brought
about added dutie, that needed
to be addressed \inh supple-
nmnts. Some are just there and
easl\ understood. like a teacher
\ ho- coaches a sport or an after-
school actiti\. But being a
small country. things come up.
like charter schools. for
instance. It \as ne\er ani one's,
job to handle charter schools. In
large school districts the\ hate

schools. W\e don't W\e ei'e it
out as a supplement.-
Employees also earn supple-
ments tor other reasons, such as
,ta0 ing ith the district tor
more than fi\e \ears. eaniln a.
higher degree or enhancing cer-
lification-s.
Board members agree that
because so man\ categories ot
supplements e'isi. creating one
police\ to handle them all is an
unlikely\ solution.
Board member Debra walker r
said that supplements originated
in lieu of saiar\ increases %ears
ago. \'hen the la'k did not


require the disinct to pa\ bene-
fits on supplements. But she
added that because the la" has
changed, there's no longer a !ea-
son to maintain that categorN.
"There are several kinds of
supplementss" she said. "Some
might possible be rolled in to
the job description, others
change trom \ear to \ear. If the
duties can be rolled into the job
description, and the salary n ith
the supplement is competitie
else here in the stale. I hate no
problem rolling the supplement
in ,ith the -alarn on a perma-
nent basis, but if Nou're doing
an extra job for a discreet
amount of time. that remains a
supplement and that ill sta,."
"1 think it all just goes around
to making sure it's fair. it's trans-
parent and it's easll~ under-
stood.' Pnbranisk said. "It's
'.ith that mindset that %\e \want to
look at these supplements."
Board member And\
Griffiths said board members
shouldn't anticipate an eas\
solution.
"If it took 20 \ears t-o get this

Card Sound hits snag


KITSCH EN B AT H

3229 ftger A,. r!. -4-;W


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A project planned for Card
Sound Road to improve the flow
of hurricane-evacuation traffic
may have hit a snag of more than
$1.5 million.
Construction work on the
project, first outlined at an Upper
Keys meeting in 2003, was sup-
posed to begin during 2007.
The proposal calls for the
intersection of Card Sound Road
and County Road 905, now a
three-way stop, to be rebuilt as a
more sweeping curve. An exact
design has not yet been approved.
Now the earliest possible start
date for construction appears to
be in 2009, according to a brief-
ing that Department of
Transportation planners made to
the Monroe County Commission
at a Nov. 14 meeting.
Among other complications: a
question of who should pay for
the roadwork, expected to cost
between $3.2 million and $3.9
million.
DOT officials told county
commissioners they believe


Monroe County was committed
to pay for half of the project cost.
"When this project was pro-
posed, it was not anticipated that
we would be funding half of it,"
County Engineer David Koppel
said this week. "That was not
mentioned in any of the meetings
I attended."
Koppel said his records do not
show any indication of a county
pledge to pay half the cost.
"That's not to say it was never
discussed by somebody at the
county level," Koppel said.
The county and DOT "are
both looking at our notes to see
who said what to whom," Koppel
said. "I don't know if there-was
any agreement."
If the state insists, Koppel
said, "the money would have to
come out of Card Sound toll rev-
enues or transportation-impact
fees from the Upper Keys. It
would not come out of gas-tax
money because there are no funds
available there."
The seemingly simple project
to round-out an intersection also
is complicated by the fact that
any widening or roadway change
would go through lands immedi-'
ately northwest of the current
intersection.
All that land is part of the fed-
erally protected Crocodile Lake
National Wildlife Refuge.

"are still looking at all the possi-
ble impacts" to protected species,
said refuge manager Steve Klett.
Studies could last another
year, he said. Species of concern
include the American crocodile,
the Key Largo woodrat, the Key
Largo cotton mouse and the
Schaus swallowtail butterfly.
The most expensive design
alternative, a sweeping curve that
would require building a new
bridge or roadway through three-
quarters of a mile of refuge wet-
land, appears to be unlikely,
Koppel said. "It just takes up too
much of the protected area."
DOT appears to be favoring a
plan that would be a modified
version of the intersection of
County Road 905 and U.S. 1,
near mile marker 106.5.
Northbound traffic from 905
to Card Sound road would be
able to keep going without stop-
ping, which is the ultimate goal
of the plan.
Having to stop at the existing
intersection results in a delay of
38 seconds per vehicle, according
to the DOT. That could create
backups during a massive hurri-
cane evacuation.
"This is simply about improv-
ing evacuation times. We can get
traffic out a lot faster if we don't
have to deal with that T-intersec-
tion," said DOT consultant Mike
Kinne at the 2003 meeting in Key
Largo.

Three arrested, one sought


By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbumie@keysreporter.com

Three more people have been
arrested in connection with two
separate Upper Keys crimes, and
a warrant has been issued for a
fourth person, suspected of rob-
bing TIB Bank in Tavemier in
August.
u Business burglaries: A sec-
ond suspect has been charged in a
slew of burglaries this fall, as a
Key Largo teen awaits arraign-
ment Tuesday.
On Nov. 20, 32-year-old
Hector Hernandez of Key Largo
was arrested in Miami in connec-
tion with the Nov. 6 burglaries of
Senor Frijoles, Cactus Jacks,
Sundowners and an office serving
all three restaurants. He is being
held in the Stock Island Detention
Center on $100,000 bail.
Hemandez was a passenger in
a truck driven by 19-year old
Sammy Santamaria, also of Key
Largo, that was pulled over by
police shortly after the Nov. 6
burglaries.
Santamaria, who police say
confessed to 19 burglaries and
three arsons, one of which burned
an Islamorada waterfront home to
the ground, is being held at the
Stock Island Detention Center on
$200,000 bail. His arraignment,
originally scheduled for Nov. 20,
was postponed at the request of
the State Attorney's Office.
State Attorney's Office spokes-


PATIO & HOME
11111:1060111 r


man Matt Helmrich said it appears
likely Santamaria will be charged
with eight felony counts in con-
nection with four crimes. "There
may be an arson charge coming,
but we haven't gotten reports from
the State Fire Marshal or the
Sheriff's Office yet."
Deputies stopped Santamaria's
truck just minutes after the four
burglaries were discovered. Pry
tools, masks, gloves and bank
bags belonging to Sundowners
were found in the truck, and a
shoe impression found at the bur-
glary scene matched the shoes
worn by Hemandez, said Deputy
Becky Herrin, a sheriff's office
spokeswoman.
More arrests and charges are
expected, Herrin said.
Waffle House robbery: Two
more people have been charged in
the Sept. 4 robbery of the Waffle
House in Key Largo.
On Monday, 18-year-old
Latonya Thomas and 20-year-old
Joel Pratt, both of Key Largo,
admitted to police they participat-
ed in the robbery, Herrin said.
They are being held without bail
on charges of robbery with a
weapon.
Twenty-year-old Fernando
Garcia, also of Key Largo, was
arrested Sept. 11 for the same
crime.
Employees of the Waffle House
told detectives that at 5 a.m. Sept


4, two men forced one employee at
knifepoint to join a second
employee at the back of the restau-
rant. One robber held a two-foot
long knife and a stun gun; the other
had an axe. Police say they threat-
ened the employees, telling them
not to look at them, bashed open
the safe, took the money and left
out the back door.
Police suspect Pratt and
Garcia committed the robbery,
and Thomas helped plan the rob-
bery and waited outside in her car.
to help them get away.
Bank robbery: A suspect has
been identified in the Aug. 21 rob-
bery of TIB Bank in Tavemier.
An arrest warrant has been
issued for 53-year-old Kenneth
Franciose, whois wanted for rob-
bery with a weapon. -
Franciose has an address in
Key West, and his driver's license
gives an address in Port Charlotte.
He was identified after
Detective Michael DiGiovanni
received a tip from a citizen who
saw surveillance photos of the
robber, and told-DiGiovanni the
photos resembled Franciose,
Herrin said.
Anyone with information about
these cases should contact the
Sheriff's Office or call Crime
Stoppers of the Florida Keys.
Callers to Crime Stoppers may
remain anonymous and may
receive a reward if their informa-
tion leads to an arrest. The hot line
number is 1-800-346-TIPS.

Search continues for boater


Key Largo man
last seen Nov. 24
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The search for a missing
Key Largo boater resumes
today with friends and family
members heading onto the
water.
Rafael Hernandez, 48, and
his 16-foot open fisherman
boat vanished last weekend.
"Nothing has shown up.
There is no sign of him and
nothing has been found float-
ing," said Lucy Hart,
Hernandez's ex-wife. "We are
obviously very concerned."
Hernandez has lived in the
Sexton Cove subdivision for
about three years, Hart said.
After he did not report to
work at Key Largo Grande for
three days, Hernandez was
reported missing Wednesday.
His truck and boat trailer
were found at the subdivision
ramp.
Hernandez was last seen on
bayside waters, between mile
markers 103 and 106, around
11:30 p.m. Nov. 24.
"He is a survivor," Hart
said. "He is a good swimmer,
and had food and water for a
couple of days. We're confi-


dent he will be able to make
something work."
Coast Guard Petty Officer
Jennifer Johnson said a heli-
copter search flew over the
Blackwater Sound and
Buttonwood Sound areas
where Hernandez was last
seen "at first light" Friday.
Other Coast Guard
Auxiliary flights have been
searching the Upper Keys
coastline, she said.
"So far the results are nega-
tive," Johnson said Friday
afternoon.
The Coast Guard has been
broadcasting a bulletin on
marine Channel 16 hourly.
"We're focusing on the
bayside but also looking in


other areas," Johnson said.
"We have so little information
about where Mr. Hernandez
went."
Hernandez was a recre-
ational fisherman who knew
the local waters, Hart said.
The Key Largo-brand boat
is white with teal pinstriping
and a teal Bimini top, Hart
said. The vessel registration
number FL 7608 LV is pow-
ered by a Johnson outboard.
"We're hoping the commu-
nity can join in the search and
look along the shorelines, or at
least keep an eye out," Hart
said. "The family appreciates
all that anyone can do."
The Coast Guard is asking
anyone with information to
call Coast Guard Sector Key
West at (305) 292-8727.

Bight Board


terms expired


City examining
legal status
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Despite their four-year terms
expiring on the Key West Bight
Board, five members continue to
sit at the dais and discuss leases
and negotiations regarding the
island's historic harbor.
The board met last
Wednesday, but terms expired
Nov. 5 for members Karen
Cabanas, Michael Knowles, Dan
Probert, Paul Rothaus and
Natalie Varela five of the six
members currently serving on the
board. John Dillion, who
resigned, has yet to-be replaced.
"We serve at the pleasure of
the mayor and commission," said
Ray Capas, board chairman.
Capas' term expires May 17,
2009, according to the city
clerk's office.
According to the city's legal
department board members con-
tinue to serve until reappointed or
replaced.
Mayor Morgan McPherson is
responsible for bringing appoint-
ments before the City
Commission. He said he's
unaware whether board members
must be reappointed to serve, but
said he wants to interview each
member to determine whether
they want to continue their work
with the board.
There is no resolution on
Tuesday's City Commission
agenda to reappoint or appoint
members to the board.
McPherson said it will be on the
following agenda.
Capas was unaware of the
expired appointments. He said
appointments require filling
seven disciplines that must be
addressed to cover all grounds
and to function without biases.
The city ordinance lists these
disciplines: accounting, banking,
Chamber of Commerce, historic
preservation, legal, maritime and
real estate.
Capas is a Realtor and Probert
provides the maritime perspec-
tive, as he ran the U.S. Navy Pier
for 35 years, he said.
The system "has worked out
brilliantly," Capas said. "Over the
years, the board members have


Keynoter


been very effective."
A city ordinance that defines
the appointments and term length
of Board members doesn't
address whether a board member
whose term expired can serve on
the board.
According to Probert and
Legal Assistant Clair Hurd,
McPherson delayed making
appointments until after the Nov.
6 runoff election out of courtesy
to whoever took the position.
At Wednesday's Bight Board
meeting, they granted a six-
month lease extension to The
Waterfront Market's Buco
Pantelis.
"There are two interested par-
ties speaking with Mr. Pantelis
regarding the Waterfront Market
lease and operations," according
to a letter submitted to the Bight
board by Pantelis's lawyer. "The
length of the lease and the annual
increase of (5 percent) are two of
the major obstacles to interested
parties when considering the fea-
sibility of lease assumption."
Earlier this year, Pantelis
wrangled with the city to lower
the market's rent in a protracted
battle. After finally agreeing to
terms this summer, he did not
sign a lease and signaled his
intent to close in September.
After two investors showed
interest in purchasing the market,
Pantelis received a lease exten-
sion through December. When
that deal fell through, a group of
citizens emerged to purchase the
market and transform it into a
cooperative.
Calling themselves Friends of
the Waterfront Market, they
began accepting donations and
created a Web site, www.water
frontmarketkw.com.
Pantelis said Thursday that he
hoped the community group will
be able to buy the business.
Saying he had to tend to urgent
personal matters, he did not com-
ment on any other possible suit-
ors.
Pantelis can opt out of the
newly-extended lease by giving
90-days notice. The lease must be
approved by the city commis-
sion.

Elmer Cook
Elmer Cook, 96, died Nov. 26 at
the Devon Manor Nursing Home in
Devon, Pa.
He was a lifelong winter visitor
to Marathon where he owned and
rented a condo and was an avid
fisherman.
Cook began coming to
Marathon to fish a half-century
ago and would tell his Keys friends
stories about the "good old days."
His varied business experiences
also provided fodder for stories
about the rich and famous he
worked with in a career that
included a Philadelphia public
relations and advertising firm,
owner of a sign company, three
printing companies and two travel
agencies.
Cook also served as an agent
for famous personalities including
Victor Mature, Rudy Vallee, and
Jackie Gleason.
He served in the Coast Guard
during World War II, reaching the
rank of Lieutenant Commander,
and helped create the show "Tars
and Spars" for the Guard, which
toured the U.S. during the war
years.
Born in Philadephia on April 1,
1911, Cook was always aware of
the humor in life.
Neighbors at Seawatch in
Marathon recall "whenever you
bumped into Elmer, he was sure to
greet you with a smile and tell an


interesting story of his vast experi-
ences."
His boat, the Captain Cook, was
frequently used by friends and
neighbors, who enjoyed taking
Cook for fishing trips and even for
lobster diving during the mini-season.
Cook managed to continue
shallow water diving into his 90s.
He is survived by his wife, Joyce
B. (Cooling) Cook of Villanova, Pa.,
and sisters Gertrude Bodin and
Marjorie Bender Widmann, along
with three stepsons; one step-
daughter, two nephews, seven
great nieces and nephews, and
five great, great nieces and
nephews.
Services were held Friday at
Spruce Street Baptist Church in
Newtown Square, Pa.
In lieu of flowers, the family sug-
gests charitable donations to
Christian Higher Education
Scholarship Fund, c/o Spruce
Street Baptist Church, 3701
Newtown Street Rd., Newtown
Square, PA 19073.

Clarence Everlyn Dore
Dr. Clarence Everlyn Dore, 92,
of Grassy Key and Sidney, Maine,
died Nov. 6 at his home in Maine.
He was born March 30, 1915, to
Mildred and Ara Dore.
Dore was preceded in death
by his wife, Marjorie; and their son,
Peter. He is survived by five daugh-
ters; 13 grandchildren; 12 great-


grandchildren and his friend and
companion Coleine Hoague.
Dore, known as "Clay" or
"Doggie," and his wife, the late
Marjorie (Baldwin) Dore, were win-
ter residents at Lions Lair travel park
on Grassy Key for more than 30
years. Dore, called Dr. Doggie by
the.author who wrote "Mash goes
to Maine," was a member of the
Marathon Moose club.
A graduate of Colby College,
he attended the Thomas Jefferson
University School of Medicine in
Philadelphia and completed his
medical residency at Henry Ford
Hospital in Detroit.
During World War II, he was
inducted into the U.S. Army
Medical Corps, rising to the rank of
Captain, and served in the
European theater. Dore was cited
for heroic actions saving his unit
from German strafing during the
Battle of the Bulge.
After the war, he served in
Veterans Administration hospitals in
Iowa and New Orleans before
returning to Waterville,. where he
maintained a family practice.
He loved to hunt and fish, trav-
eling to the Florida Keys, Alaska,
Costa Rica, Mexico, New Zealand,
California and Newfoundland.
.A memorial service was held
Nov. 17 at the Colby College
Chapel.


The Miami Herald


Thomas Mitchell Overton,
convicted in one of the Keys'
most notorious murders, took
another step closer to the death
chamber last week when the state
Supreme Court ruled he was
properly represented by counsel.
In a 77-page opinion, the high
court knocked down every one of
Overton's claims regarding his
conviction in the 1991 murders
of Susan Michelle and Michael
MacIvor and their unborn child
in their Tavemier home.
Susan Michelle MacIvor, 29,
was eight months pregnant. She
was raped, and she and Michael,
30, were strangled. The baby died
about a half-hour later.
Within a year, sheriff's
deputies came to suspect
Overton, a gas station worker and


well-known cat burglar with a
violent streak.
Five years later, in 1996, they
caught him after a stakeout. They
jailed him and asked for a DNA
sample, but Overton refused.
Later, jailers intentionally
gave him access to a shaving
razor, knowing he would likely
try to pry it out in a bloody
attempt to kill himself that would
ultimately leave a sample.
Overton did as expected, cut-
ting his neck. Jailers saved his
life and then had his DNA tested.
Now Overton's main hope
rests with the U.S. Supreme
Court, which has halted execu-
tions as it examines whether
lethal-injection techniques are
constitutionally sound.

The city of Key West transit fleet will soon switch to biodiesel fuel, which promises a 45 percent
reduction in particulate emissions.


Buses going biodiesel


Key West begins
converting to
clean fuel

Looking to help clean up the
city of Key West, all of the city's
diesel engine vehicles will soon
be propelled by biodiesel fuel.
The first load of 3,800 gal-
lons of the B20 biodiesel arrived
Thursday morning, city officials
said.


"Biodiesel is the name of a
clean-burning alternative fuel
produced from domestic, renew-
able resources," said General
Services Director David
Fernandez. "Biodiesel can be
used in compression ignition -
or diesel engines with no
major modifications. It's simple
to use, biodegradable, nontoxic
and essentially free of sulfur and
aromatics."


The city was previously using
ultra-low-sulfur diesel in its
diesel engine vehicles.
"Biodiesel used as an 80/20
blend with petroleum diesel and
dt catalytic converter will signifi-
cantly cut air pollution,"
Fernandez explained. "This
combination will reduce particu-
late matter emissions by 45 per-
cent, carbon monoxide emis-
sions by 41 percent and total

Three public information
meetings are to be staged in
December to provide advance
details on a planned 2008
research study to examine links
between Florida Keys ecosys-
tems and tourism.
Beginning at 3 p.m. each
date, two-hour presentation and
feedback sessions are set for
Key West Dec. 7 at the Florida


Keys Eco-Discovery Center at
the Truman Waterfront, at the
Key Largo library Dec. 10 and in

The meetings will also

hydrocarbon emissions by 65
percent."
The B20 biodiesel fuel is a
blend of 20 percent biodiesel and
80 percent conventional ultra-
low-sulfur diesel. B20 is recom-
mended by several engine manu-
facturers including Cummins,
International, Caterpillar and
John Deere, and can be used on
current city vehicles without
voiding any factory warranties or
service contract agreements the
city has -purchased along with
certain vehicles.


This new fuel will be used in
the city's transit bus fleet and
other diesel engines, including
the city's heavy equipment such
as street sweepers, backhoes and
generators.
In addition to helping the
environment, the B20 biodiesel
fuel is also currently priced sev-,
eral cents cheaper per gallon than
the ultra-low-sulfur diesel.
"Research has shown that bio-
diesel fuel is actually good for the
diesel engines because it pro-
vides more lubrications, and it's
good for the environment,"
Fernandez said. "It really has a
huge impact on emissions."

Benefit honors Key Largo diver


Michael R. Smith
died in Oct. 5
free-dive accident
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A special benefit event today
in Key Largo remembers a dive
professional who left his mark on
the local community.
Michael R. Smith, 37, died
Oct. 5 in a free-diving accident.
His survivors include an unborn
child.
An Italian dinner prepared by
Dr. Jim Boilini and a preview
showing of the short film,
"Reflections: A Florida Keys
Experience," highlight the 6 p.m.
event tonight at the Key Largo.
Community Pool complex. Entry
donation is $50.
A silent auction featuring an
array of donated items also will
be held.
"Mike's involvement with our
community was special and
invaluable," said Rob Bleser, who
hired Smith as a captain at
Quiescence Diving Services.
During his seven years in the
Keys, Smith also worked as a


recompression-chamber techni-
cian at the Mariners Hospital
Hyperbaric Medicine Depart-
ment, and as a captain with the
National Undersea Research
Center in Key Largo. The North
Carolina native also held instruc-
tor's ratings from several dive
agencies.
As a member of the Water
Emergency Team of the Key
Largo Volunteer Fire Department,
Smith took part in the recovery of
victims from last year's dive
tragedy deep inside the Spiegel
Grove shipwreck.
"Mike was well-liked and tal-
ented in so many ways," Bleser
said. "People really want to help
his family."
"Everything is donated,"
Bleser said. "Absolutely 100 per-
cent of everything raised [today]
will go to a memorial fund that
focuses on the baby's college edu-
cation."
After appetizers including
olive-and-cheese tapenade, the
meal service includes main cours-
es of "Doc's cheese ravioli in
portabello cream sauce" and
"Chicken Boilini."
Organizers said the memorial
benefit is a suitable venue for
showing "Reflections," produced
and directed by Bob Talbot and


r

Peter Zuccarini as a project for
the National Marine Sanctuary
Foundation.
The 21-minute story follows a
fictional character, portrayed as a
youngster by Emily Perrotti and
later by well-known Lower Keys
freediver Mehgan Heaney Grier,
as she grows up in the Keys and
learns about the delicate environ-
ment of the hammocks, man-
groves and waters.
"Growing up in a place sur-
rounded by water, it gradually
became a part of me and I a part
of it," says narrator Colette
Whitaker.

tures sea life on the grass flats and

the reef.
The film also shows how the
Keys have grown in population
and visitation. "Learning to bal-
ance enjoyment with responsibili-
ty became an ever-evolving strug-
gle," the film observes.
A grant from the National Fish
and Wildlife Foundation helped
fund the film, while numerous
local dive firms and government
agencies were credited for assis-
tance.
People unable to attend the
Key Largo benefit can make
donations to the Michael Robert
Smith Memorial Fund at any
Florida Keys branch of First State
Bank.

Abrego debuts symphony season


Musicians
come together
for 10th year
The Key West Symphony, a
unique gathering of 70-
plus musicians from
around the United States, is to
begin its 10th year with a con-
cert titled "Love, Scandal and
Intrigue" featuring soloist
Monica Abrego.
The curtain is to go up at 8
p.m. Jan. 11 and 12 at the '
Tennessee Williams Theatre on
the campus of Florida Keys
Community College on Stock
Island.
The symphony's 10th season
also includes performances
scheduled Feb. 1 and 2 featur-
ing pianist Jeffery Biegel and
April 4 and 5 with pianist
Andreas Klein.
For each concert weekend,
the symphony's nationally rec-
ognized conductor and musical
director, Sebrina Maria Alfonso,
brings together a core group of
professional symphonic musi-
cians from around the country.
Many have returned to the
island city repeatedly to be part
of its unique orchestral ensem-
ble.
These performers are supple-
mented with other leading musi-
cians and soloists chosen to
enhance each concert program.


The January concerts'
soloist, Monica Abrego, is a
stellar soprano originally from
northern Mexico. She has
appeared as a soloist with the
Orquesta de Baja California, the
Tifereth Symphony Orchestra in
Israel and the Imperial Valley
Symphony in California among
others.
Abrego and the Key West
Symphony are to perform
Heitor Villa-Lobos' Bachianas
Brasilieras No. 5 and Spanish
composer Joaquin Rodrigo's
"Quatro Madrigales
Amatorios." The symphony's
concert program also is to
include "The Love for Three
Oranges," a suite based on an
opera composed in 1919 by


Sergei Prokofiev; Samuel
Barber's "School for Scandal
Overture" and Modest
Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an
Exhibition."
Prior to the evening perform-
ances during each concert week,
the Key West Symphony is to
present free interactive concerts
for Keys schoolchildren. The
educational performances, .a tra-
dition since the symphony's
first season, enable the students
to learn about orchestral music,
composers and instruments
through firsthand experience of
a live symphonic concert.
Throughout the season, the
orchestra's Friday performances
are followed by receptions where
concert goers can mingle with
the musicians and conductor.
Subscription tickets for the


season are $210 or $225 per
person, depending on seating,
for the three Friday-night per-
formances and post-concert
galas, and $180 or $195 per
person for the three Saturday-
night performances. A limited
number of series seating pack-
ages for $95 and $125 also are
available.
Tickets for individual con-
certs range from $32 to $75 per
person.
All tickets can be purchased
online at www.keystix.com or
by calling the Tennessee
Williams Theatre box office at
296-1520.
For more information, visit
www.keywestsymphony.com
or call the symphony office at

A safari to Stock Island fits just fine


Guinto putting
animal world
onto new film
T he seat of the 1967
Kaiser M-715 5/4-ton
Jeep was about waist
level, so the sturdy handle
mounted on the dash came in
handy to hoist myself into the
action zone.
The Vietnam-era vehicle,
with the shadow of its military
star on the hood, completes the
image for Chris Guinto as he
leaps from his home aboard a
renewed, formerly abandoned,
Cuban-refugee fishing boat
into the driver's seat of the
Jeep on his way to check ani-
mal traps around the county.
His day includes handling
raccoons, iguanas and the occa-
sional alligator for various gov-
ernment agencies, so his con-
versation is speckled with ref-
erences to the policies and
statutes in the different munici-
palities.
But that's just his day job.
Guinto describes himself as an
animal behaviorist/evolutionist
and explorer. He has an
extraordinary vision and an
impressive set of skills to apply
to it.
He taught himself HTML so
he could set up a Web site
(www.whiteapeman.com) to
promote his "Whiteapeman"
view of the world "from a
brash evolutionary standpoint."
His MySpace page
(www.myspace.com/white
apeman) has videos of him
with animals he has known on
four continents.
Meanwhile, Key West won
out over Africa for the launch
of his film project that will
examine the human animal
from a zoological perspective.
All his other projects now
promote the film. A recent
invitation to compete in the
21st annual American
Sandsculpting Championship
Festival in Fort Myers illus-
trated the evolution of the
species.
In a New Hampshire master
sand-sculpting competition, he
was described as "the best
carver in the entire world" by
fellow competitor Meredith
Corson. Another contender
said on the "Good Morning
America" show: "Guinto?


At a Chris
Guinto?
He's com-
...' ing to this
competi-
S .i -, tion? I'm
. forfeiting
now."
S Guinto
is good
with a
pencil,
too,
Judi Bradford although
he says "I
hate drawing. I can't sit still.
When I have to pick up a pen-
cil, I'm not in a good mood."
His pencil drawings, however,
are stunning.
The lively Web site he struc-
tured is layered in rich colors,
textures and imaginative solu-
tions to problems like lists of
sponsors.
Like anyone with strong
opinions, he has his detractors.
He stepped into the chicken
guano with some comments
about the revered Key West
chickens. Bloggers Robert and
Janet Kelly (www.therealkey
west.blogspot.con) called a
Guinto e-mail "clever satire,
but it's cruel in many parts."
Guinto's focus is animals.
We drive to the animal shelter
with a medium-sized iguana he
just retrieved from a trap lying
peacefully in his lap. He can't
stop himself talking about ani-
mal behaviors the pre-
dictability of specialists like
crocodiles and the complexities
of the generalists like bears.
Although the 35-year-old
studied mammology in school,
it's crocodilians that have

sites some give some

stolen his heart. "It's difficult
to exclude any animals," he
says, recalling Helen, a low-
land gorilla he met in Africa
and hopes to revisit soon.
To keep it all going, of
course, he is now applying
himself to fundraising. He dis-
covered Fractured Atlas, an
artists' group that helps with
administration and funding,
and is now teaching himself
grant writing. "I'm good at ani-
mals, but that ... unh," he
groans.
So far, even with the grant
writing, his life is set up like
an Indiana Jones adventure,
without the pesky teaching
part. The Whiteapeman evolu-
tionary theory is taking shape
with his whimsical logo and
other distilled comic wildlife
images on caps, shirts, bumper
stickers, etc.
And Guinto balances the
desk work with alligator
wrangling.

The 'real' martini makes a return \


Back to basics
for the purists
James Bond ruined it for the
purists.
First he had the gall to
order a martini made with
vodka, then he had the audacity
to order his drink "shaken, not
stirred." It was a sad day for gin
lovers (though in Ian Fleming's
books, 007 ordered 19 vodka
Sand 16 gin martinis, according to
Allison Perlik, senior editor of
the trade magazine Restaurants
and Institutions).
The clear spirit that symbol-
ized high class in the early 20th
century and fell from favor during
the vodka-crazed '70s is back.
Bar and restaurant patrons are re-
discovering the aromatic, flavor-
ful appeal of gin, especially mid-
scale, premium and ultra-premi-
um gins (leave the cheap "value-
-priced" stuff in the bathtub).
Gin starts life as a clear grain
spirit, usually made from wheat
or rye. Most gins are distilled in
column stills, which produce high
Proof, light bodied spirits with a
minimal amount of flavor com-
pounds or flavoring elements.
The clear spirit a very
close relative of vodka is then
flavored with juniper berries and

(herbs and
spices).
Cheap
gins are
made by
mixing
berry juice
and flavor-
ings into to
the clear
spirit.
Bob Serata Today's
better gins
are flavored by putting the spirit
through an extra distillation
process. The alcohol vapor drifts
through a chamber filled with
dried juniper berries and botani-
cals. The vapor extracts oils
from the berries and botanicals
to flavor the spirit when it is
condensed back into liquid form.
The recipes describing which
botanicals are used are closely
guarded secrets.
The result is clear gin. The
top brands have signature aro-
mas and complexity, each dis-
tinctive. For instance, Beefeater
gin has a bite that's favored by
many gin aficionados. Tanqueray
is smoother, with richer flavors
on the palate.
Gin was most-often served
chilled and "neat." Just gin, no


The first drink James
Bond ordered in the
original "Casino Royale"
(1953) was a Vesper a
cocktail made of three
parts gin with one part
vodka. In the 007 series,
Bond ordered 19 vodka
and 16 gin martinis,
according to Wikipedia
on the Web (not the most
reliable source, but who
would lie about Bond?).

ice, no mixers. But it was the mar-
tini that made gin famous. The
cocktail came to symbolize
wealth, success, high class and big
business (the three-martini lunch).
The traditional martini started
out as two parts gin to one part
sweet vermouth. By the late
1800s, dry white vermouth
became the mixer of choice. Over
time, martinis became drier and
drier, mixing in less vermouth.
Winston Churchill said the
best martini was made by filling
a glass with chilled gin then
passing the cork from the ver-
mouth bottle over the glass.
Today's martini bears little
resemblance to the historic cock-
tail. Just about anything mixed

Tanqueray offers

There's also the onr-

berries (related to blackthorn

the neutral grain spirit.
But if there is such a thing as
pure gin, just the spirit, juniper

be tried in its relatively pure
state. So have a martini tasting at

whom can bring one or two half-

sweet red Italian vermouth,

"dry" means less vermouth.

tion of Giuseppi Verdi's "Aida,"
directed and designed by Franco
Zeffirelli. Six additional operat-
ic presentations, from Milan's
La Scala, Florence's Maggio
Musicale and Venice's Teatro
La Fenice, will follow.
More than 60 screens
throughout the country have
already signed on, with more
being added daily.
In addition.to La Scala's
"Aida," productions slated for
big-screen release are Wagner's
"Tristan und Isolde" (La Scala),
Donizetti's "Maria Stuarda" (La
Scala), Verdi's "La Traviata
"(La Scala), Puccini's "I1


Trittico" (La Scala), Verdi's "La
Forza del Destino" (Maggio
Musicale) and Puccini's "La
Rondine" (Teatro La Fenice).
Founded in 1778, La Scala is
widely considered the greatest
opera house in history. It has
been home to many of the most
renowned composers, conduc-
tors and virtuoso singers of the
international opera world.
The Zeffirelli-designed and -
directed production of "Aida"
featured the costumes of
Maurizio Mellenotti and starred
Roberto Alagna as Radames,
Ildiko Komlosi as Amneris and
Violeta Urmana in the title role.
The production was conducted
by Riccardo Chailly and the
310-person stage extravaganza
was rewarded with a 13-minute
ovation at the conclusion of the
opera.
Emerging Pictures President
Giovanni Cozzi, behind the
nationwide screenings, said,
"Opera aficionados worldwide
regard La Scala as one of the
premiere opera houses through-
out history.... It is wonderfully
fitting that our first cinema
presentation, 'Aida,' was
designed and staged by the
great Italian film and opera
maestro Franco Zeffirelli. It is
just too perfect a way to start


such an historic partnership."
Emerging's La Scala Opera
Series is unique because it
involves a number of innovative
international alliances.
Tickets $20 to all of the
shows are $20 ($18 for Key
West Film Society members).

This music's different


Klezmatics take
Yiddish, combine
it with Guthrie
The legendary lyrics of late
folk singer Woody
Guthrie are to resonate at
an 8 p.m. outdoor concert Dec.
14 in Islamorada.
Starring the New York-based
Klezmatics, the performance is
to be staged at the TIB Bank of
the Keys Amphitheater at
Founders Park, mile marker 87.
The group is named after the
style of music they play,
klezmer, sung in Yiddish typi-
cally for dances and celebra-
tions. It is identified by charac-
teristic expressive melodies,
reminiscent of the human voice,
complete with laughing and
weeping.
For their first album totally
in English, the Klezmatics
chose 12 Woody Guthrie songs
from handwritten documents in
the archives. They sing his
lyrics to original music born of
their Jewish heritage on
"Wonder Wheel," which won
the Grammy Award for 2006
Best Contemporary World
Music Album.
Guthrie's most recognized
work is "This Land Is Your
Land," a song he wrote in 1940
and recorded in 1944.
The Klezmatics have per-


formed in more than 20 coun-
tries and at renowned festivals
worldwide including Central
Park and Carnegie Hall. The
group has collaborated with
acclaimed artists including
Itzhak Perlman and Arlo
Guthrie, Woody Guthrie's son.
"After Arlo Guthrie per-


formed last year to a sold-out
crowd, the Islamorada
Community Entertainment
board of directors scrambled to
book this event," said David
Feder, ICE president.
Tickets to the performance
are $25 each and can be pur-
chased at www.keysice.com
or at the door. For more infor-
mation, call 395-6344.

Historic inns show their holiday splendor


Delicious food,
local artists
-part of tours
By FRAN MARCHBANK
L'Attitudes Contributor


The holiday spirit will be
fueled this month when
20 historic Key West inns
open their doors during the
sixth annual Historic Lighted
Inn Tour.
These lovely Old Town inns
will be adorned, inside and out,
with sparkling lights, Christmas
trees and colorful holiday deco-
rations to welcome guests on
the tour. Some of the inn own-
ers have chosen subdued dEcor,
while others are over the top
with elaborate displays of hun-
dreds of lights. Variety is the
hallmark of these tours.
All the featured inns are in
lovingly restored Old Town
buildings representing the var-
ied architectural styles tradi-
tionally associated with historic
Key West. At least one guest
room will be open at each loca-
tion, and the inns' owners will
be on site to answer questions.
At The Mermaid and The
Alligator, 729 Truman Ave.,
Santa will be resting in a ham-
mock, storing up energy for his
Christmas Eve flight. Owner
Dean Carlson has created an


enchanted setting for Santa in
the inn's gardens.
Indoors, the traditional holi-
day theme continues with a
twinkling Christmas tree and
other classic trimmings. During
the tour, guests will enjoy appe-
tizers prepared by Michael's
restaurant as well as beer, wine
and sodas.
"Key West is getting known
more and more for its pre-holi-
day activities and shopping,"
Carlson says. Floridians have
told him that "the atmosphere
created in Old Town is as close
as you can get to that snowy,
northern feeling," he said.
"In fact, just this week, I
received a call from Fort Myers
from people who said there was
not much in the way of pre-hol-
iday events there and they were
planning to come to Key West
for a weekend to get that holi-
day feeling."
Twenty of the island's inns
are participating in the tours,
which will be offered from 5 to
8 p.m. Dec. 7 and 8 and Dec.
14 and 15. Each tour will fea-
ture five beautifully decorated
island inns, where out-of-town-
ers and locals will enjoy fine
food and drink, tour the proper-
ties, and enjoy the ambiance
created by the owners.
Some of the inns have paired
up with one of Key West's


7 7]L7 1 .71 .,.7: 7-
-A 0Le "3 I 19 I a W&M
VIS1 I1 1:4


restaurants so that tourgoers
will be able to sample different
foods from island chefs. Others
will serve their own mouth-
watering treats. Dishes will
range from tempting appetizers
to heavy hors d'oeuvres, which
can be enjoyed with wine and
beer at some locations, such as
The Mermaid and The
Alligator, and a full bar at oth-
ers.
The Key West Innkeepers
Association has also teamed up
with the Studios of Key West to
add a new dimension to the
tours this year by showcasing
the work of local artists, writers
and performers.
"We want the tours to be fun
and casual," says Ian Whitney,
president of the Innkeepers
Association. "The inns can be
visited in any order, and the
tours will be informal. A pro-
gram will be provided with the
tickets so that guests can devel-
op their own itinerary. And this
year," he added, "our partnering
with local restaurants and the
Studios of Key West will
enhance the tour and create an
experience that will leave
everyone in the holiday spirit."
Restaurant partners include
Camille's, Dock Cafe, Cafe
Sole, Grand Cafe, Michael's,
Martin's, Blue Heaven and
Santiago's Bodega. All food and
drinks served during the tour
are included in the ticket price.
The Key West Innkeeper's
Association represents historic
inns in Old Town.

win in opener


Canes begin
fast, blow by
Carroll 52-44
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Coral Shores started fast and
finished strong to launch the boys
basketball season with a victory,
52-44, Tuesday over Archbishop
Carroll.
"It's the first time in my high-
school career that we've opened
with a win," said senior Stephen
Fowler, a four-year Hurricane var-
sity veteran.
"It's a good sign," said Fowler,
a 6-foot-6 center who led the
Canes with 13 points.
"We made a lot of mistakes in
execution but we made up for it
with hard work," said Hurricane
head coach Andy Thiery after the
opener. "The guys played hard
and played together as a team.
That was enough."


Things did not go so well later
in the week at Gulliver Prep,
when the Hurricanes fell, 76-34,
Thursday. Results of a Friday
home game against Miami
Country Day were not available at
press time.
Despite missing two regulars,
the Canes opened against the
District 16-3A rival Carroll
Bulldogs with a 7-2 start, guards
Max Jones and Sammy Leon hit-
ting on early 3-pointers. Each
would close with eight points in a
balanced scoring attack.
In the first minute of the sec-
ond quarter, short jumpers by
Anthony Whitehead (seven
points) and Fowler gave the
Canes a 17-9 lead.
But the Bulldogs found a hole
in the Hurricane defense, going
inside for layups and putbacks
that put Carroll ahead at halftime,
27-25. Carroll forward Krystian
Amedee scored 10 of his 12 first-

Conch girls play

Miami Edison today


Soccer showdown
features two
district opponents
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

The Key West High School
girls soccer team will try to
keep its perfect District 16-4A
record intact when it plays vis-
iting Miami Edison at 5 p.m.
today at the Back Yard.
The Conchs, coming off a 7-
1 victory Wednesday against
Mater Academy in Hialeah, are
5-0 in the district and 5-3 over-
all. They defeated Edison, 8-0,


in mid-November.
Today's game will follow
the 3 p.m. Key West-Edison
boys game.
Against Mater at Amelia
Earhart Park, freshman Jennifer
Barcenas scored two goals and
Kriz Menez, Gigi Orofino,
Jasmine Jones, Natalie Dudley
and Kara Haack each scored
one. It was Haack's 13th goal
of the season.
"We are playing very consis-

Key West offense

They watched a comfortable
14-point halftime lead dwindle
down to just one point in the
fourth quarter, but the Marathon
High School boys basketball team
held off Key West High School
and eventually won by that same
margin, 64-50.
Dolphins coach Kevin
Freeman said the win was a good


one against what has become a
heated Keys rival. He said the
team fed off comments made last
year by Conchs coach Paul Davis
that Key West should never lose
to either Marathon or Coral
Shores.
"Win or lose it's not going to
affect our district play, but in real-
ity we always want to beat Key
West and any time we do it's a
good thing for our program,"
Freeman said. "The crowd was
loud and excited and the players
fed off-their energy."

Canes look for rematch


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


A narrow loss at Ransom
Everglades did not dim champi-
onship aspirations for the Coral
Shores boys soccer Hurricanes.
"We still feel very good about
the season," said head coach
Jorge Bosque. "By the time the
[District 16-3A] Tournament
gets here, I fully expect to be at
the top of the district standings."
Coral Shores fell to district-
leading Ransom in a 5-4 slugfest
Tuesday in Miami.
Darkness was falling on the
muddy, unlighted field when the
host Raiders scored the game-
winner from about 20 feet with
time running out.
"It was a short kick and
because of the darkness, our
goalie never saw it coming,"


Bosque said. "It happened so
fast that it was impossible to
stop."
Coral Shores (6-2 overall, 2-1
district) was tied with the
Raiders, 2-2, at halftime.
Both sides exchanged goals
in the second half before the late
shot.
"Ransom has a small field
and that affected our game,"
Bosque said. "Now we know we
can play wtih them. When they
come down here [Dec. 14], I
think things will be different."
Sophomore Mike Hampson
had a strong game against
Ransom before going down with
an injury.
Mike Loguercio and Patrick
Lofton played well up front, said
the coach, while midfielder
Chris Rini and defender Fabian


Placencia helped goalie Richard
Fernandez.
Scoring details were not
available at press time.
The Hurricanes play three
home matches this week: 5 p.m.
Monday vs. LaSalle; 6 p.m.
Tuesday vs. Marathon High
School; and 5 p.m. Dec. 7 vs.

Menez had three assists, the
first of which led to a goal by
Orofino that put the Conchs
ahead, 1-0, three minutes into
the game.
Leading by only 3-1 at inter-
mission, the Conchs quickly
pulled away in the second half.
Jones scored on an assist from
Menez. Menez then scored her-
self before feeding Barcenas
who made it 6-1.
"If we can get [Jones and
Barcenas] to produce for us up
top as freshmen, then we will be
much stronger going into the
playoffs," Paul said.
Midfielder Rachel Rivet con-

Conchs, as did goalie Liz

Fins draw yellows with physical play


Despite their
effort, they fall to
Canes, 3-0
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Coral Shores High
School boys soccer team
defeated Marathon High
School in what became a very
physical match up between
Keys rivals at Marathon
Community Park, 3-0.
Dolphin coaches and play-
ers took exception to a hit put
on Noel Ceja by junior
Hurricane defender Chris Rini
as the two players jumped high
for a play on a ball near the
midfield sideline. The
Hurricanes were up 2-0 at that
point.
Rini and Ceja collided, with
Ceja landing hard on his back
out of bounds. He was shaken
up after the play as the two
benches exchanged words over
the incident.
Dolphins head coach Jim,
Murphy said it upset his play-
ers when Rini later reentered

the game.
"That's one of those penal-
ties where it's never an acci-
dent," he said.
Hurricanes coach Jorge
Bosque said while it was a hard
hit, Rini did not intend to
injure Ceja on the play.
"There was no elbow to the
head. That was one of those sit-
uational plays, there was no
intention of trying to hurt any-
body," he said.
Several Dolphin players
were issued yellow cards dur-
ing the remainder of the game.
Play was back and forth
between the two teams early
when the Canes finally broke
through with a goal from their
top scorer,, senior Mike
Loguercio.
Junior midfielder Ernesto
Villegas maneuvered through
three Dolphin defenders before
putting it on Loguercio's foot
inside the box for the goal.
Despite the goal, Murphy

shadowing Loguercio for most
of the game.

mally plays defense for the
team.
"Loguercio took a ball down
the right side and put a ball
across the mouth of the goal
and [Jauregui] put it in,"
Bosque said.
Jauregui later assisted on
the team's final goal, netted by
junior forward Patrick Lofton
from just outside the box.
Bosque said he felt the team


did an excellent job controlling
the pace of the game.
"Defensively we did an out-
standing job because our keep-
er only touched the ball six
times," he said.
Murphy said the Dolphins
got away from working the ball
upfield, something they have
been working on in practice.
The team had been relying on
through balls to produce
offense so far this season.
"There was a big hole in the
middle of the field, we were
just playing defense and kick-
ing it up forward. We've been.
working it up and went back to
playing kickball," he said. ,
On Tuesday, Marathon
notched a 1-1 tie with Key
West High School.
George Hoffman scored the
Dolphins only goal on a penal-
ty kick and goalie Jay Hegland
saved one of his own in the
game. The team is now 2-2-2
on the season.
The Dolphins next game is
scheduled for 1:30 p.m. today
at Westminster, while the
Canes (6-2) host LaSalle Dec.
3 at 5 p.m.

Senior standout Blake
Friedman continued his stellar
play, scoring 24 points to go along
with eight steals, four rebounds
and three assists. Senior Sergio
Howard had 12 points and five
rebounds, while Eric Carey had 10
points as well.
Carey hit two three-pointers
for the Dolphins in the first half
and Freeman said the 5'9" senior
has provided a much-needed
spark so far this season.
"He's worked hard this year;
he's playing big on the low block
and being a great defensive pres-
ence," he said.
Senior Mike Gallagher led the
'Conchs with 14 points, while jun-
ior Vladimyr Sibera and senior
David Ruiz each had 10.
Marathon ( 1-1) built a com-
fortable 14-point lead during a
well-played first half, which was
capped by a last second layup by
senior Sergio Howard. Howard
scored on an assist from senior
star Blake Friedman, who looked


to be in trouble but laid it off at the
last possible moment.
But even after Freeman spoke
to his players at halftime about
maintaining focus and trying to
win the first four minutes. of the
third quarter, the Dolphins would
see their healthy lead diminish in
the second half.
"What happened in the third
Quarter has happened all year. Key
West just stepped up the pressure
and we started turning the ball
over again," Freeman said.
Davis said the team was able to
begin applying pressure once his
younger players began to grasp a
new, recently installed defense.
"They didn't really have any
good ball handlers; we were able
to apply some pressure and get
some turnovers," he said.
The Conchs (0-2) made it a 41-
40 game near the end of the third
quarter and Marathon managed to
close it out with a 44-41 lead.
The Dolphins managed to
stave Key West off in the fourth
quarter, thanks mainly to solid
free throw shooting. They shot 12-
16 from the line in the final eight

minutes, with Friedman netting
eight of his 10 attempts. He was
14-18 from the stripe for the
game.
Davis said he felt the free
throw margin was skewed in the
game and played a part in deter-
mining the outcome.
"It's frustrating to have the
game being dictated by officiat-
ing. It's a big discrepancy when a
team is shooting 20 more free


throws than we do," he said.

'We stayed focused and played tough'


HOOPS / From 39

half points in the second quarter.
"They were driving right
through us," Thiery said. "We told
the guys to stay at home under-
neath against their big guys and
make [Carroll] try to beat us from
the outside."
It worked as the Bulldogs
struggled to find their shots from
the outside. Carroll scored only
five points in third quarter, and
was limited to seven field goals in
the second half.
"Coach gave us a good pep
talk," Fowler said. "We stayed
focused and played tough in the
second half."


With Norman Dixon (seven
points), Whitehead and Fowler
guarding the lane, guards Ray
Ferro, Jones and Leon harassed
the Bulldogs into turnovers on the
perimeter.
Two layups by Dixon and a
Leon trey sparked the Canes to a
36-33 lead heading into the
fourth, but Carroll battled back to
tie the game at 42-42 with 2:40 to
go.
A Fowler hook shot at 1:45
gave the Canes a 46-44 lead.
Ferro drove for a runner.
Whitehead scored on a put-
back with 35 seconds left, then
was fouled on a defensive
rebound. He hit one of two free
throws that put locked up the win


for the Canes.
Regulars Chris Noble and
Randell Jackman missed the game
with injuries. Fowler, the team's
leading scorer last season, said he
expected to play in Friday's game.
Coral Shores, now 1-1, got a
team-high 12 points from Fowler
in the loss at Gulliver. Jackman
returned to action to score seven
points. Norman Dixon also scored
seven.
The Hurricanes stay home for
three games next week: at 6 p.m.
Monday against Maritime and

Seven schools take it to the mat today


Key West hosts
meet that includes
Coral Shores
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Come late fall, the Key West
High- wrestling team can be
found practicing behind the
school each afternoon in "The
Room" a stuffy former garage
dominated by a red-and-gray
mat and half-heartedly lit by
overhead fluorescent tubes.
In this place that in another
era held body-shop classes -
"max load 500 lbs." is sten-
ciled on the ceiling beams the
smell of sweaty bodies is per-
manent, despite daily bleaching.
"Some of our former
wrestlers come back just for that
smell," said coach John Moeller,
a former Ohio University
wrestler in his 50s and in his
fourth year as the Conchs'
coach.


As he sat Wednesday in a
cluttered office that adjoins the
mat area, Moeller was figuring
out his lineup for today's seven-
team tournament at the Bobby
Menendez Gym. Wrestlers com-
ing in to weigh themselves
interrupted him intermittently.
"We have injuries and some
kids who aren't making weight,
so we have some holes,"
Moeller said.
Today's tournament
which begins at noon and will
include Coral Shores, Naples,
Christopher Columbus, Doral
and Flanagan will be the
Conchs' second meet of the sea-
son. They defeated three of the
five schools they faced in a tour-
nament Nov. 20 at Clewiston.
Several Conchs are back
from last season, including 189-
pound senior Ralph Major, who
was 42-3 and finished fifth in
the Class 1-A state meet. "He is
looking awesome," Moeller
said.


There is really no one to test
Major at practice except burly
43-year-old Martin Russell, a
rugby player and former inter-
national wrestler in Scotland
who arrives by motorcycle to
help out with the team. "They
wrestled yesterday and Ralph
had him in trouble," Moeller


said.
Others expected to have good
seasons are 160-pound Cody
Aydt, 140-pound junior Eli
Labrador (out temporarily with
a knee injury), 125-pound soph-
omore Cody Van Buren, 112-
pound junior Greg Garcia and
130-pound sophomore Dylan


S Ralph Major
S and Cody
Adyt, both
seniors at Key
West High
School,
Prepare for
today's
tournament,
which will
feature teams
from seven
schools.

Barber, who missed by one
match of qualifying for the state
meet last season.
Sophomore Lou Wada and
junior Ben Covan are vying for
the 135-pound slot. "Tooth and
nail," said Moeller. Which is
how most of the Conchs go at it
in "The Room."
