Bruno sues county
alleging McCoy
sexual advances
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

A sexual harassment case
against Monroe County Mayor
Sonny McCoy has resurfaced, this
time in a demand for a jury trial.
McCoy's former aide, Celeste
Bruno, sued the county Friday in
Circuit Court alleging six counts


ranging from a hostile work envi-
ronment to failure to protect her
against harassment and the retali-
ation she says ensued when she
rebuffed McCoy's advances.
Bruno, who worked for
McCoy for more than a year,
filed a complaint against the
county in October 2006 with the
U.S. Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission. In
May, an EEOC investigator

A judge on Friday ordered a
new trial for a woman who was
convicted of poisoning her
Marine husband, an Island
Christian School graduate, with
arsenic and using the life insur-
ance to pay for breast implants.
San Diego, Calif., Superior
Court Judge Peter Deddeh


found that Cynthia Sommer,
34, received ineffective repre-
sentation from her former
defense attorney.
Deddeh said the attorney's
errors allowed prosecutors to
introduce evidence about
Sommer's wild partying imme-
diately after her husband's
death.
Sommer's former attorney,
Robert Udell, told the judge he
committed tactical errors,

Two divers and a kayaker
made it back to shore after misad-
ventures on Florida Keys waters
this week.
One boater did not.
A body identified as Rafael
Hemandez, 48, of Key Largo was
found floating in Blackwater
Sound, offshore of Key Largo,
around dusk Friday.
"Clothing, jewelry and other
identifying features indicated the
body is.Hemandez," said Deputy
Becky Herrin, spokeswoman for
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office.
Hemandez, an employee of
the Key Largo Grande resort,
went missing Nov. 24 after a late-
night fishing trip on Florida Bay
waters north of Key Largo.
A search for him began Nov.
28 after he missed several days of
work.
"The family appreciates every-
thing the community tried to do


for us," Colette Hart, Heinandez's
daughter-in-law, said in a tele-
phone message to the Keynoter.
Hemandez "appears to have
died of saltwater drowning,"
Herrin said. "According to
Homicide Detective Terry Smith,
there were no other signs of trau-
ma in evidence on the body when
it was examined."
Hernandez's 16-foot open
fisherman boat remains missing.
"That is kind of strange,"
Herrin said, "but there's a lot of
water and mangroves out there."
Hemandez apparently launched
his boat from the Sexton Cove sub-
division where he lived. His truck
and boat trailer were found parked
at the community ramp.

Divers reach shore
Other searches ended on a
positive note.
Two scuba divers John
Ritowski, 44; and Shelly Brown,
33 swam from an area near
Tennessee Reef off Long Key to


the Channel 2 Bridge after being
unable to reach their boat.
The U.S. Coast Guard and
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
launched a search by helicopter
and boat after the two were
reported missing Saturday
evening.
They reportedly surfaced far
from their boat and could not
return to it because of currents.
They eventually reached the
bridge, an estimated three to four
miles from their dive site.
Both divers are reported to be
in good condition.
It was not immediately known
where Brown and Ritowski live.
A Summerland Key man, 51,
was missing for more than 24
hours before he was located
around 11 a.m. Sunday off
Cudjoe Key.
He was found by the FWC near
Tarpon Belly Key after venturing
out from Blimp Road on Cudjoe
Key early Saturday. His name was
not available at press time.


Wheeler sees ouster as likely


TDC / From 1

some, but that he holds nothing
against Wheeler.
"I don't believe the TDC has
served the interest of all of the
businesses here... especially [for]
all the hotels in Monroe County,"
Rhyne said. "I am going to make
up my mind when I hear the argu-
ments."
Wheeler is less than opti-
mistic, as he believes four "yes"
votes from the board will end his
tenure as a top county tourism
official: Di Gennaro, McPherson,
Rhyne and Freddy Varela.
"I can guarantee you that if
Morgan hadn't collected those
votes, it wouldn't be on the agen-
da," Wheeler said.
Four yes votes will be enough
to pass the item, as member Jay
Marzella won't be attending the
meeting, Wheeler said. There are
eight members on the board; one
seat is vacant.
Representatives from the Key
Largo, Marathon and Lower
Keys chambers of commerce -
three of the county's five cham-
bers have expressed favorable
opinions of Wheeler and his per-
formance.


Daniel Samess, executive
director of the Marathon cham-
ber, understands why Wheeler's
garnered support because "we've
always enjoyed working with
Harold. Every experience I've
had with him has been very posi-
tive."
Jackie Harder, president of
Key Largo's chamber, is taking it
a step further; she plans to draft
and read a resolution in support
of Wheeler at that Dec. 11 meet-
ing. She has already sent around
a letter in his support.
McPherson hasn't fully
explained his reason for the pro-
posal, only saying he wants
someone in the position who can
fulfill Key West's new "vision."
But Wheeler says the county
and Key West governments want
to "control the allocation of funds
to put them towards county and
city projects."
The TDC has promised $1
million in funding toward the
sinking of a decommissioned
ship, the USS Vandenberg, as an
artificial reef off Key West. When
county representatives asked the
TDC's five local advisory coun-
cils for $2 million more, all
declined. Had the full TDC over-
rode the local councils and OK'd


the $2 million, other county proj-
ects would have gone unfunded.
"If this is linked to the
Vandenberg not going funded,
Harold had no control over that,"
board member Rita Irwin said.
"There's no need for revenge."
Wheeler and McPherson
might have other issues besides
disagreements over who should
fund the Vandenberg.
Wheeler said McPherson and
others want "more money to go
towards new high-end develop-
ment projects in the Keys to
reach a more upscale demograph-
ic."
McPherson has faced his own
difficulty staying involved in the
TDC, as he forfeited his position
on the board in September by
missing four meetings in one fis-
cal year. Di Gennaro, who was
then county mayor, reinstated
McPherson.
The ratings given to Wheeler
at the July 31 meeting averaged
in the "exceed expectations" and
"excellent" margins.
Wheeler's contract mandates
that in the event of immediate fir-
ing without cause, he receives
two months' worth of salary
($21,181.45).

Cay Clubs' sales recorded in
Marathon are triggering chal-
lenges to some property
appraisals with ramifications on
how comparable sales will influ-
ence future tax bills.
The average value of condo-
miniums skyrocketed last year in
Marathon's Sombrero Resort,
sometimes called Sombrero Cay
Club -or Sombrero Resort and
Lighthouse Marina.
The upward pressure was led
by the only sales recorded for
the complex --29 closings con-
ducted after Cay Clubs took over
management and partial owner-
ship of the resort. Now owners
there face large tax bills based
on those 2006 transactions. .
But some owners are chal-
lenging the appraisals, saying
Cay Clubs sales shouldn't be
used as a factor in setting market
values. Tom Wright, a Marathon
real estate lawyer, represents a
longtime Sombrero-owner who
has filed a challenge.
"The units Cay Clubs sold-
were based on promises of jet-
use discounts, -memberships,
tremendous renovations [and]
parking ramps," he said. Some
of the transactions, he added,
"were not arms-length transac-
tions."
Cay Clubs has denied claims
alleging fraudulent sales prac-


tices in response to civil lawsuits
filed by buyers. Those cases are
still pending in Circuit Court.
Other buyers in other Cay Clubs
properties have filed similar
lawsuits in other jurisdictions.
The issues over property val-
uations used on the tax roll,
however, has moved the debate
into a new area, the Value
Adjustment Board.
With Cay Clubs sales fac-
tored in, figures show units
changing hands at prices
between $500,000 and $800,000
during 2006, said Karl Borglum,
an assistant property appraiser.
Without those sales, the units
would have a taxable value
between $250,000 and
$300,000.
That difference is substantial
in triggering tax bills for those
affected condo owners.
Each non-homesteaded
condo owner would save about
$2,200 if Cay Clubs sales are
deemed impermissible by the
appraiser's office, according to a
rough estimate by Borglum. But
he stressed that his office is not
interested in how much revenue
the municipalities collect -
only the real worth of the condo--
miniums.
If the appraiser's office low-
ers the value of any of the
Sombrero condos, they will sim-
ilarly adjust them all, he said.


Borglum says the appraiser's
office has not yet decided on a
course of action.
If the taxable value of the
units is not changed, Wright said
he and others would carry on
with petitions to the Value
Adjustment Board, which is in
charge of hearing property value
disputes in Monroe County.
Borglum thinks that might be
best even if he or his staff
believes the values are inappro-
priately high.
"It's always good to have an
independent party evaluate this,"
he said. "If the private litigation
was already complete if we
had a decision from a judge it
would be a lot easier for us.
Property owners seeking a
change in their assessed value
can petition the Value
Adjustment Board each year
after they receive their bills at
the end of each summer. Filing
costs $15, and petitions are
available online at www.clerk-
of-the-court.com. The board
appoints a special magistrate,
and then considers that person's
findings.
The board is made up of two
School Board members and
three county commissioners.
The current make up: commis-
sioners Silvia Murphy, George
Neugent and Dixie Spehar; and
board members John Dick and
Duncan Mathewson.


Insurance money cited as motive

including failing to call witness-
es to adequately refute prosecu-
tors' theories about the source of
the arsenic.
Sgt. Todd Sommer, 23, was
in top condition when he col-
lapsed and died Feb. 18, 2002,
at the couple's home on the
Marine Corps' Miramar base in
San Diego.
His death was initially ruled
a heart attack. Tests of his liver
later found levels of arsenic
1,020 times above normal.
Sommer grew up in
Islamorada and attended Island
Christian School. He played
varsity basketball, and in 1997
was among 10 students induct-
ed into the school's Hall of
Fame, as chosen by staff and


fellow students. He joined the
Marines shortly after gradua-
tion.
A jury convicted Cynthia
Sommer in January of first-
degree murder by poisoning
and for financial gain. She
faced a mandatory sentence of
life in prison without the possi-
bility of parole if Deddeh had
denied the retrial.
She remains in custody with-
out bail, though her current
attorney, Allen Bloom, said he
plans to request bail conditions
at a hearing set for Dec. 12 in
San Diego.
Sommer's co-workers testi-
fied- during the trial that the
widow didn't grieve quietly in
the weeks after the death. The
couple married in 1999.
Rather than going into seclu-
sion, she got her breasts


enlarged and, witnesses said,
joined wet T-shirt contests at
nightclubs and had casual sex
with other military men.
Prosecutors said Sommer
wanted a more luxurious
lifestyle than she could afford
on the $1,700 monthly salary
her husband brought home and
saw the $250,000 military life
insurance policy as a way to
"set herself free."
Sommer, who moved to
Florida after the death, cried on
the stand .Jan. 17, dabbing her
eyes as she recounted her hus-
band's last moments. She said
during cross-examination that
she hadn't been able to envision
a future with him.

valid. However, in June the com-
mission sent a note to County
Attorney Suzanne Hutton saying
it would not pursue a lawsuit in
the case.
Bruno says she stopped work-
ing with McCoy because of sexu-
al harassment and went to work
for Commissioner Dixie Spehar.
After several months, she left that
job, as well.
The lawsuit alleges, among
other things, the county failed to
protect Bruno when she worked
with Spehar after a man walked
in to Spehar's office and threat-
ened her. That man, Milo Reese
- once convicted of stealing a
plane from the Marathon airport
and crashing it in Cuba added
to the mental anguish Bruno suf-
fered at the hands of McCoy,
according to the complaint.
Now Bruno seeks damages,
attorney fees and litigation costs.
The suit alleges McCoy told
of his sexual antics, including
liaisons overseas and an affair
with his neighbor's wife.
After several months, the suit

When she told him that his
inquiry was inappropriate and

that he was attracted to her and


'Not for one

Sonny McCoy
Monroe County mayor

asked again why she would not
answer his question."
McCoy said he was advised
by the County Attorney's Office
not to comment on specific alle-
gationis in the suit.


"At no time did I ever harass
Ms. Bruno in any way," he said.
"Nor was any adverse personnel
retaliation or other action taken
against her during her employ
with the county."
In June, McCoy said he'd just
as soon see it go to court to clear
his name. That sentiment, he said
Tuesday, hasn't changed.
"I feel there's no other resolu-
tion to this thing," he said. "Not
for one minute did I ever say any-
thing that would have hurt her."
In the suit, Bruno alleges
McCoy sent up some red flags
right from the start by failing to
ask about her qualifications dur-
ing her job interview, nor did he
ask for her resume, instead com-
menting, "Well, you're certainly
pretty enough."
When Bruno finally quit, she
alleges in the lawsuit, County
Administrator Tom Willi told
Bruno "that he was surprised that
she had lasted as long as she
did..." working for McCoy.
The suit alleges the county is
to blame because it knew of
McCoy's sexual harassment of
other women and does not have
policy forbidding harassment by
a county commissioner.

Keys Opinion


Closing school raises

many more questions

Closing a school in Key West to save money has been a hot-but-
ton issue for more than a year.
Declining enrollment triggered the initial look as a way of con-
solidating teacher assignments and classroom size to meet state
mandates.
Now, the arguments get added momentum from factors beyond
local control namely, the threat of significant funding cuts
coming from the state.
Tuesday, a committee of school principals, School Advisory
Committee chairs and community participants asked to examine
the question delivered its report to the Monroe County School
Board.
The panel recommends closing Glynn Archer Elementary, shift-
ing more students to Sigsbee Elementary and reducing the size of
Horace O'Bryant Middle, which needs a major new physical
plant.
Other plans have been advanced in the past, including one in
February floated by School Board member (now chairman)
Steven Pribramsky to surplus Gerald Adams Elementary on Stock
Island and redistribute students among the remaining four Key
West schools.
That would have potentially "freed up" Gerald Adams, which
sits next door to Florida Keys Community College's main c'am-
pus, for district offices now at Trumbo Point. Or it could have
fueled further talks with FKCC for joint use or conversion to dor--
mitory housing.
With the committee chaired by Terri Axford, Sugarloaf's high-
ly regarded principal, now pushing in a different direction, it will
be important for the School Board to discuss this and other rec-
ommendations out in the open.
It's not lost on most observers that closing Glynn Archer would
fit perfectly with the city of Key West's well-documented need to
replace their aged and moldy city hall on Angela Street. The city
even completed a feasibility study last year on just such a
prospect.
Pribramsky's call to convert Gerald Adams for district offices
would make district administrators more easily accessible to
teachers, parents and others who travel from outside Key West.
So who winds up moving administrative offices to Glynn
Archer: the city of Key West or the School District? Interesting
question. Lots of conjecture and as yet no timeline on when
the school system will leave its Trumbo Point property.
The six acres at Trumbo have been designated for affordable
housing, with Ed Swift's Old Town Key West group given 18
months to find a new location for administrative offices and rec-
ommend solutions for a stalled affordable project at Marathon
Manor.
Still more questions. We're looking to the superintendent and
board to provide more answers so everyone can embrace a plan
that makes the most sense.

McPherson way off base in bid to oust Wheeler


EDITOR:
Every astute business person knows that
when it comes to marketing, you figure out
what works and what doesn't and do more of
what works, killing what doesn't.
What doesn't make sense is killing what
does work.
That could happen with the proposed
ouster next week of Tourist Development
Council Marketing Director Harold Wheeler
by Key West Mayor Morgan McPherson.
Mr. McPherson wants a "new vision into
the life of the TDC" but does not explain
what that new vision entails. There may be a
clue in a Dec. 1 newspaper article in which
Mr. McPherson is quoted: "I think [Wheeler]
has done a great job, but it's time for a
change. I think with the changing demo-
graphics of Key West, our room rates and
overall marketing strategies, we need some-
one more attuned to that change. We are
nowhere near what we were five or 10 years
ago in the type of people coming and in their
expectations."
Mr. Wheeler has done a great job, but after
that, we take exception with Mr. McPherson's
comments.
Neither the TDC nor Mr. Wheeler has any
say on hotel room rates. Key West's market-
ing strategies are established by the TDC's
nine-member District Advisory Committee
for Key West, not the TDC or Mr. Wheeler. If
Mr. McPherson wants a different marketing
strategy for Key West, he needs to communi-
cate that with the people who make those
decisions.
The TDC and Mr. Wheeler are not respon-


sible for changing demographics in Key West
either. Those changes are driven by the real
estate market (including condo conversions),
property appraisals, property taxation, and
lack of affordable/workforce housing. The
best Mr. Wheeler and the TDC can do is
anticipate and.get ahead of those changes.
They have done an admirable job -
tourist-tax collections on short-term accom-
modations are the highest they've been in
five years. The TDC also has funded research
on workforce housing, condo conversions and
retaining tourism workers that can be used as
a starting point for those who care to take
action.
The "type of people coming and their
expectations" certainly has changed as room
rates increase. Higher room rates drive mid-
dle-class tourists out of the market. And peo-
ple who pay big bucks for hotel rooms expect
commensurate services. Where does the TDC
and Mr. Wheeler fit into that equation?
Finally, this is not just about Key West,
but about the entire destination. The Key
Largo Chamber of Commerce, with 375
members who employ nearly 4,100 people in
and around Key Largo, believes Mr. Wheeler
and the TDC overall have done a great job
marketing our island and supporting our
events and projects.
The chamber's board strongly urges the
TDC keep Mr. Wheeler in place as marketing
director. Don't mess with something that's
working.

Reading a book can change the world


EDITOR:
In an election year, when voters are trying
to make informed, not emotional, choices on
serious and complicated issues, we would
expect our county government to expand, not
diminish, our library services.
Any deconstruction of our library system
affects our collective rights under the First
Amendment, limiting full development of
thought, which is the basis of our other free-
doms, which enable us to participate in the
democratic process. Therefore, any decon-
struction of the library is a deconstruction of
the democratic process, however slight.
Regarding the democratic process, books
are the most powerful speakers against
library deconstruction, because they address
the.issues we need to know about. But to be
useful to us, there must be new books,.
because the issues are always changing.
Obviously, library cuts can destroy this
aspect, of our library services. These new
books in particular speak to the issues: "The
Case for Goliath: How America Acts as the
World's Government in the 21st Century,"
"The Iran Threat: President Ahmadinejad and
the Coming Nuclear Crisis," and "The U.S.
Army: Marine Corps Counterinsurgency
Field Manual." This book revolutionized


U.S. military doctrine, population security
being a fundamental concern. That social
concern, along with the military protective
function, is succeeding in Iraq lately, slowly
but surely.
It is a book that is changing the world.

Panel: Close Glynn Archer


If it happens,
Key West eyes
it for city hall
By KRISTEN BURNIE
and KYLE TEAL
kbumie@keysreporter.com

One of the oldest and most
historic school buildings in
Monroe County could soon be
asked to shut its doors.
At a special meeting Tuesday,
a Key West Facilities Committee
formed by the Monroe County
School Board recommended
Glynn Archer Elementary in Key
West be closed and students shift-
ed to a renovated Sigsbee
Elementary School.
The committee, comprising
educators, parents and communi-
ty members, also suggested
Sigsbee become a school for stu-
dents in kindergarten through
grade eight and Horace O'Bryant
remain a middle school, but trans-
ferring about 300 HOB students
to the expanded Sigsbee campus.
While the School Board mulls
those options, Key West city offi-
cials hope to press a case for
Glynn Archer as a possible city
hall to replace the city's deterio-
rating building on Angela Street.
"We're desperately looking
for a place to put the new city
hall," said Assistant City
Manager John Jones, who con-
ducted a study last year on the
Glynn Archer property.
The School Board is expected
to meet with city officials next
Tuesday in a workshop and make
a final decision on which school
to close by Jan. 8.
In addition to the committee's
recommendation, board members
.will look at other proposals,


including a pitch from Florida
Keys Community College, which
has its eye on the Gerald Adams
Elementary, which sits adjacent
to FKCC's Stock Island campus
and could be converted to student
dorms.
The historic Glynn Archer
school on White Street opened in
1923 as Monroe County High
School the only high school in
the Keys until Marathon High
School was built in the mid-50s,
according to county historian
Tom Hambright.
While the two main buildings
are designated historic, the sur-
rounding playground and addition-
al classrooms are newer, he said.
Key West City Commissioner
Mark Rossi, who's advocated
constructing a new city hall for
some time, agreed. "I think it's an
excellent idea," he said. "Unless
we find some asbestos."
City officials said a big ques-
tion remains: What's the cost of
renovating? Also, because the
building is historic, it can't be
tom down, Jones said.
Committee Chairwoman
Theresa Axford, principal of
Sugarloaf Elementary School,
delivered the facilities commit-


tee's findings Tuesday.
"No one on the committee.
wanted to close a school," she
said. "We found the task very dif-
ficult indeed because schools are a
part of the fabric of the communi-
ty. We all know the things that a
school represents, especially in a
city like Key West, because gener-
ations of students have attended."
"But it's very important for
the district to remain fiscally
sound and make a good deci-
sion," she added. "We really need
to advance our plan and get the
community's support."
She said transportation and the
perception of displacement of
teachers from Glynn Archer will
also be challenges for the School
District.
Members of the public wish-
ing to comment on the issue can
do so at a 10 a.m. meeting Dec.
11 in the boardroom of the A.J.
Henriquez Administrative
Building, 241 Trumbo Road in
Key West. Contact board secre-
tary Sally Smith at 293-1400 Ext.
53324, or send an e-mail to

FWC convenes today


Keys session
includes lobster,
manatee listing
Keynoter Staff

Spiny lobster, manatees
and the bald eagle will get the
attention of marine lawmakers
during a two-day meeting
today and Thursday in Key
Largo.
A proposal to reclassify
manatees and bald eagles
from endangered to threat-
ened under state guidelines
goes before the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission today in a meet-
ing at the Marriott Key Largo
Bay Resort, mile marker 104.
State officials say the move
would not affect any rules
protecting the species, but
simply conform to current
definitions based on the best
available population counts
for the species.
Manatee advocates say the
classification change could


limit funding to help the
state's official marine mam-
mal, and lead to looser regula-
tions.
Florida Keys commercial
fishermen and divers are
expected to turn out Thursday
when changes to state spiny-
lobster laws are suggested.
State biologists want to
continue using passive reduc-
tion to further lower-the num-
ber of lobster traps in state
water. Fishermen say addi-
tional reductions in trap num-
bers threaten their livelihoods.
A special license to take
lobster from Keys water dur-
ing mini-season could be con-
sidered. As suggested, the
Keys license would require
that lobster taken locally be
tagged so a 12-lobster bag
limit could be verified.
The license would require
approval of the Florida
Legislature since it would
include a surcharge.
Both days' FWC meetings
start at 8:30 a.m.

Blended water starts flowing south to Keys


Annual plan
helps conserve
potable supply
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Florida Keys residents and
visitors will soon get a taste of the
Floridan Aquifer.
As part of winter water-con-
servation measures, the Florida
Keys Aqueduct Authority has
started drawing up to 850,000
gallons of water per day from the
brackish Floridan Aquifer.


The Floridan Aquifer water
then is blended with about 16.5
million gallons taken from the.
Biscayne Aquifer, South
Florida's primary source of
drinking water.
"Some people swear they can
taste the difference," utility
spokeswoman Colleen Tagle
said. "Of course, some say they
taste the difference even before
the blended water even goes
down the pipeline."
SThe South Florida Water
Management District permits the
FKAA to supplement its daily
allotment of 17 millions of gal-
lons of fresh water from the utili-
ty's Florida City wellfield with 5
percent of water from the
Floridan Aquifer for a six-month
period that began Dec. 1.
"This has been going on for
several years," Tagle said. "This
isn't the first time."
Brackish Floridan water
comes from an aquifer about
1,000 feet under the surface. The
Biscayne Aquifer comes to with-
in 11 feet of the surface.
Eventually, the FKAA will
draw up to 6 million gallons daily


from the Floridan when its
reverse-osmosis treatment plant
is completed at a projected cost of
$40 million.
That will help preserve the
reserves of the Biseayne Aquifer
and ensure a supply of water
available for the Keys, Tagle said.
The rainy season in South
Florida produced less rainfall than
usual, which adds to a worrisome
water shortage in the region.
The Keys and Southeast
Florida remain under use restric-
tions that limit landscape water-
ing to two mornings a week. It
appears almost certain that one-
day-a-week rules will soon be
enacted to preserve water.
"With water levels so critical-
ly low, now is the time to observe
more aggressive water conserva-
tion practices," Water Manage-
ment District Executive Director
Carol Ann Wehle said in a
Tuesday statement.
The district and utility offi-
cials took part in a "water conser-
vation summit" this week to
review the situation.
"It's pretty bad," Tagle said.
"There are some major chal-
lenges ahead."
SLandscape watering and irri-


KeyLarg 99621 Overseas High, (M 1. 30545


gation consume "a huge amount
of our potable water," Tagle said.
But plans to. further restrict
irrigation use carry their own
concerns.
At the summit, experts from
areas of South Florida now under
one-day-a-week rules cautioned
that residents tend to over-water
on the one day they are permitted
to refresh their landscaping, Tagle
said. "They wind up actually
using more water."


Commercial interests said
there could be economic losses to
agriculture, and that some pump-
ing equipment needs to be run
mote than once weekly to remain
operational.
According to the district, just
half and inch of rainfall fell on the
region in November only
about a fifth of the average rain-
fall for the month. It was among
the three driest Novembers since
records were started in 1932.


True Value a true


value for county?


Store owner
pitches site
for purchase
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Money's tight for Monroe
County in the wake of property
tax reform enacted at the state
level, but one Big Pine Key prop-
erty owner has a proposal that
could end up saving the county
money in the long run.
John Scharsh and his family
have operated the Big Pine True
Value since 1961. He's since
moved to Brooksville and his son
operates the store. But he has it
up for sale and thinks the county
ought to take a look.
The 2.75-acre parcel fronts
U.S. 1 and Scharsh says it would
be an ideal location to confsoli-
date county offices, including
County Commissioner George
Neugent's office, Public Works
and a sewage treatment plant.
It would also potentially pro-
vide space for Stand Up for
Animals, which operates the Big
Pine animal shelter. That facility
is facing the end of its 20-year
lease in August.
Scharsh initially also pro-
posed putting a new Big Pine fire
station on the site because it's
larger than the existing site and
more centrally located. The cur-
rent station is on Key Deer
Boulevard.
County Engineer David
Koppel said he has been talking
to Scharsh about the possibility.
"We've been looking at that
property for some time," he said.
"We were evaluating it for the


fire station when we got the mes-
sage at the County Commission
meeting that things were taking
too long, so we stopped going in
that direction."
As things stand now, Koppel
said he'll bring a proposal for the
estimated $3.7 million fire station
before the commission at the
commission's regular December
meeting.
"This would be a viable alter-
native to redoing the fire depart-
ment, which is maxed out,"
Scharsh said.
He said his property, which is
listed at $4.75 million, would
give more space for fire service
with room to expand in the
future.
"We were hoping that we'd
come up with a plan to spend the
money [budgeted] for the fire
department on the property,"
Koppel said. "Then we could sell
a couple of county-owned parcels
and put together a package so it
wouldn't cost the county any
additional money."
Scharsh has made two propos-
als to the county over;the past
year after a potential sale to
Publix fell apart. Though he's not
yet had the opportunity to put his
proposal before the County
Commission, he thinks it's some-
thing they should consider.
"If someone doesn't buy it and
run it like a hardware store," he
said, "I'd like to see it used as
something that would serve the
future of the community."
Koppel said that even if the
fire station cannot be moved at
this point, there are other pack-
ages he thinks would be worth
exploring.

Worker units slow in coming


Requirements vary
in the various
building plans
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Six months after pledging to
build 12 affordable housing units
at Tranquility Bay and Coral
Lagoon in Marathon, city offi-
cials say developer Pritam Singh
is in the final stages of building
only nine of those units.
Singh was required by his
development agreements with the
city to complete only nine but had
pledged to construct an addition-
al three units in June. It was then
Singh met with City Councilman
Don Vasil and other officials to
discuss an agreement that "fell
through the cracks" when Cay
Clubs and The Singh Co. formed
a partnership.
The late Tracy Holder, then a
Cay Clubs executive, had been in
charge of seeing the units con-
structed. Singh said in June that
when he died, the affordable units
got lost in the shuffle and prom-
ised to move forward quickly.
But the two units at
Tranquility Bay are only now
nearing completion. City
Manager Mike Puto said Singh
informed him they are having the
finishing touches applied.
"They're putting in the appli-


ances this week and we're hoping
for those two-to have final inspec-
tion by the end of the week," he
said.
Singh received permission
from the city to transform what
was dormitory-style affordable
housing at Tranquility Bay into a
conference room and move four
units of affordable housing to his
Coral Lagoon site. Those .units
have yet to be completed and it
appears no plans are in the works
for the additional three units.
Puto said three units at Coral
Lagoon have already received
their certificate of occupancy
from the city and the other four
are nearing completion. He said
the permitting process would
likely be expedited, as the con-
struction is identical to the first
three units.
Singh "said plans for [the
other four] are being submitted
this week," he said.
Singh could not be reached for
comment.
Vasil said it is important to
make sure developers follow
through with their agreements.
"These are affordable housing
allocations in great demand right
now and we need to be building
these units or give [the- alloca-
tions] to people who will," he
said. "I want to be assure the
working people in Marathon get
what was promised to them."


Vasil also pointed out the sit-
ting council has made it a priority
in recent development agree-
ments to see affordable housing
units receive their certificate of
occupancy before any market rate
units. Such has been the case for
developments such as the former
Key Colony Bay Hotel and the
recently approved Faro Blanco
project.

Calvin Eugene Rene Bartelt

Calvin Bartelt passed
away on Thursday,
November,23, 2007 in Big
Torch Key, Florida. He was
bor on October 21, 1959
in Marathon, Florida and
was the son of Calvin
Coolidge Bartelt and Irene
Marie Bartelt Winder.
His father Calvin owned
a charter diving and fishing /
business, and was part
owner of the Seahorse .
Motel in Marathon in the
1950's.
Calvin grew up in
Sarasota and attended
Brookside Junior High and
Sarasota High School.
During his high school
years, he and his sister,
Shawn, were avid water
skiers and members of the Z
Sarasota Ski-a-Rees and performed in the Bayfront Ski Shows. He was nation-
ally ranked and competed in trick, jumping and slalom events throughout Florida
and the Southeast with Shawn.
Calvin made the Florida Keys his home after high school and was employed
at Sea Camp as a mechanic, until he chose to make a living full time as a fisher-
man near Big Torch and Big Pine Key. Calvin knew the waters surrounding Big
Pine and Big Torch like the back of his hand, and he discovered great fishing
spots that only he had in his GPS.
He fished for grouper, snapper and dolfin the conventional way. But his favorite
method of catching fish was scuba diving with a spear gun. He was an accom-
plished diver and one of the best spear fishermen in the Florida Keys. He once
speared a giant type of grouper called a Jewfish (when it was legal to do so). The
fish was larger than Calvin, but he managed to wrestle the giant fish into his 20-
foot boat and take it to market. He could tell many a story about his shark
encounters!
Later, Calvin became a stone crabber and also set out lobster traps in the
clear, blue water of the back bays in the lower keys. During the Thanksgiving or
Christmas holidays, he would take family members out on the water while he
hauled in the heavy stone crab traps. He would amaze his friends and family with
the deftness in which he would snap the claws off the crabs and toss them back
in the water. H& was an expert at catching lobsters with his bare hands under
ledges on the ocean floor. There was sure to be a feast of fresh seafood when-
ever family visited the keys.
Calvin loved the reefs of Looe Key the most and enjoyed taking family and
friends on his boat to the reef for snorkeling and swimming. He especially
enjoyed taking his young niece and nephew on his 35-foot fishing boat for a day
on the water. They. would happily watch their uncle fish or crab and then fall
asleep on the bunk below on the long journey back home.
Calvin's friends remember his great sense of humor and fun. He once took
friends line fishing while he donned scuba gear. His fishing guests suddenly start-
ed to feel big bites on their lines, and fought hard to get the-fish in the boat, only
to discover they were hooked on the line by the deft spear fishing comedian.
He will be missed.
Calvin is survived by his mother, Irene Winder of Big Torch Key and Sarasota,
Florida; two sisters, Shawn Alice Bartelt of Orlando, Florida and Lauranne Alys
Winder of Sarasota, Florida, his brother-in law Brian May and his Aunt, Jenny
Kilcheski, also of Sarasota.
Calvin also is survived by his niece Erin Elizabeth Bartelt and nephew Jon
Cameron Bartelt of Orlando, Florida and step sister Joyce Bowers Pickering of
Pennsylvania and step brother James Bowers of Gainesville, Florida. He is also
survived by his close friends Beth Bailey, Jane Murray, Ric Loux, Danny Lingane,
Larry Jordan, Terry Graham, Monty Dale, Jimmy Thalaker, John Mills, Randy
Duhi, and Royce Kaufman.
He was pre-deceased in death by his father, Calvin Coolidge Bartelt of Big
Pine Key, Florida, two uncles, Frank Kilcheski of Sarasota, Fl. and Eugene
Kilcheski of Trenton New Jersey and stepfather James Winder of Tampa, Florida.
In lieu of flowers please make donations to the Monroe County Humane
Society. A Memorial service in the Keys will be announced shortly.

LifeNet saving time


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


It may look like just another
helicopter, but the blue and
white bird parked outside the
emergency room at Lower
Keys Medical Center repre-
sents a huge step in quality
health care, hospital officials
say.
In mid-November, the
Monroe County Commission
approved a certification that
allows the Colorado-based
LifeNet corporation to park a
helicopter at the hospital.
Previously, it was stationed in
various places on the mainland.
The move, cardiologist
Bruce Boros said, is literally a
matter of life and death.
"Getting the chopper has
taken no less than an hour, even
in the ideal situation," he said.
"But then there's weather and
other factors that mean it could
take longer to transfer a
patient" to a mainland hospital
for more intense treatment.
Hospital Chief Executive
Officer Nikki Will said that in
2006, LifeNet transported 292
patients from the Key West
hospital to either Mt. Sinai
Medical Center or Baptist
Hospital in Miami. Numbers
for this year weren't available.
Parking the chopper out
back shaves a good hour off of
response time, Boros said.


For several months prior to
LifeNet's 'local certification,
the hospital relied on the coun-
ty's TraumaStar service. Over
the summer, the county hired
the necessary staff to get its
Sikorski helicopter operational.
In June, then-Acting County
Fire. Chief James Callahan
urged the County Commission
to approve hiring flight nurses
in hopes of competing for the
hospital's contract. Since the
county spent $3.7 million for
the chopper, officials have
hoped the service would even-
tually pay for itself.
Now, however, newly hired
county Fire Chief Wayne
Hinnant says the two do not
necessarily compete.
"We're an alternative for the
community," LifeNet represen-
tative Randy Layman said. "It's
the health-care professionals in
this community that are saying
they want their helicopter to be
LifeNet. They are the ones tak-
ing the risk."
"If LifeNet weren't here,"
Boros said, "I wouldn't worry.
TraumaStar is a wonderful
resource. But we have enough
traffic that we need to have two
services."
Some residents worried the
contract with LifeNet could
threaten the viability of
TraumaStar, but said LifeNet


Mitigation plan returns


Keynoter Staff


The Monroe County Planning
Commission is expected to take a
second look today at a proposal
that could add close to $98,000 to
the cost of building a home on
Big Pine or No Name keys.
SThe commission convenes at
10 a.m. at the Marathon
Government Center.
Last month, the commission
delayed a decision on a proposal
to institute a mitigation plan that
would keep developers in line
with the region's Habitat Conser-
vation Plan, which limits growth
on the two islands to protect habi-
tat for endangered Key deer.
It allows for just eight new
market-rate and two new afford-
able homes annually over the
next 20 years. In addition, it
- -severely-limits commercial space


and redevelopment.
The mitigation ordinance
would set parameters for that
new construction.
On Nov. 14, the County Com-
mission imposed a 60-day morato-
rium on new construction and
redevelopment on the two islands
to allow county staff time to come
up with the mitigation plan.
The county has been using
publicly owned land to offset the
mitigation needs of developers
on Big Pine the past year, and
county staff warned that the so-
called mitigation bank could run
dry, leaving the county where it
might have to pay for mitigation
on sgme ongoing projects,
including a possible $5 million
for the Mariner's Community
-Park.- --- .----- --


had been providing the transfer
service for years already. The
only difference now, she says,
is the service will be faster and
likely save more lives.
"TraumaStar's primary role
is service at the scene of acci-
dents," she said. "We do use
them periodically, but we just
felt that having this service
would be much more beneficial
to patients."
County Commissioner
Mario Di Gennaro said during
the November commission
meeting that he's concerned a
small profit margin might drive
LifeNet to pull out.
"This is no fly-by-night
organization," Will said. "At
this point we are not concerned
because this organization has
been providing services to the
Keys for many years."


Migrants

land in Keys

Keynoter Staff

More than two dozen Cuban
migrants were found in man-
groves off Tavemier Tuesday
morning, with several others
reportedly still out there in hid-
ing.
Authorities recovered 26 of
them around 11 a.m. and took
some to Mariners Hospital for
treatment of exposure and dehy-
dration. They were then taken to
the U.S. Border Patrol station in
Marathon for processing.
Under the United States'
wet-foot, dry-foot policy,
Cubans who make landfall are
allowed to stay while those
interdicted at sea are generally
sent back. It's not clear where
Tuesday's migrants, who
reportedly said they were smug-
gled here, fall.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Coast
Guard repatriated 65 Cuban
migrants Sunday. They were
interdicted at sea in three sepa-
rate events between Nov. 24 and
27, one off Key West, one off
Marathon and one off Cay Sal
Bank in the Bahamas.
Four suspected smugglers
were arrested. In addition, the
Coast Guard said it disrupted
seven attempted smuggling
operations and detained 12
additional suspected smugglers
-the-past seven-days.- ---

Slowly, that's starting to

Though market leaders State

Since January, eight insurers

Poll: Voters look at tourism

McClatchy Tribune

A poll of prospective Florida
voters found more than one-third

whichever 2008 presidential can-
didate develops the best ideas to
boost travel and tourism.
The survey, commissioned by
the Travel Industry Association,


National Tour Association and

Economics can make tourism
a political issue for Floridians,
said Lyndsay Rossman, spokes-
woman for Visit Jacksonville.
"It's our No. 1 industry. It's
why we have no state tax -
because of the tourism dollars,"
she said.
Rossman said tourism had a

Northeast Florida in 2006, draw-


ing 4.6 million visitors.
Her statistics also showed the
First Coast having 117,800

It takes up to 60 gallons of
water to wash the average
car. In the Keys, where water
restrictions are becoming the

has quite an em ironmental

"We don't have water to

Pollok said the product is

wiped with a terry towel to

The surface is then polished
gently w ith a microfiber

tectant. She said after the
waterless car wash, rain

"We feel that this is the perfect

McCahill's company already

insured by Citizens, now the
largest home insurer in Florida.
In January, Homeowners Choice
will start selling policies through
nearly 700 independent insur-

its own base, Olympus President

"The biggest risk for any new

There's no guarantee another

enough capital and enough back-

and how it plans to distribute

Overseas troops get holiday


cheer from Keys students

Students countywide collect money to fill soldiers' stockings


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Keys kids are helping
American forces enjoy a happy
holiday this year by raising close
to $3,000 for the Stockings for
Troops project coordinated-by
the American Red Cross of
Greater Miami and the Keys.
Students from Coral Shores
and Marathon high schools,
Island Christian School, the
Monroe County Youth
Challenge and San Pedro
Catholic Church joined together
-to send the seasonal cheer to the
military in Iraq and Afghanistan.
"We get camo fabric donated
by the manufacturer," Keys Red
Cross office manager Grace
Connors said, "and different
groups sew the stockings."
Inside are a variety of goodies
based on wish lists the soldiers
send.
"White socks are the main
thing they ask for," Connors
said. "It's hot and they change


them a lot. But they also ask for
calling cards, CDs, razors, things
like that."
This is the third year the local
Red Cross has sent the stock-
ings.
Michelle Sutter, prevention
coordinator for the Monroe
County Youth Challenge,
worked closely with the kids this
year to raise the donations, $10
at a time.
"These kinds of meaningful
service opportunities offer stu-
dents a chance to contribute to
something bigger than them-
selves and to act on the behalf of
others," she said.
.She said she was especially
pleased that youths from all over
the Keys worked together on the

Strong Conchs


take second

Canes' Soares
also solid in
weekend meet
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


For almost six hours Saturday,
sweat was given freely, permeat-
ing the mats that covered the floor
of a loud energized Bobby
Menendez Gym. The straining,
the leverage-seeking and the pin-
ning seemed to go on forever at
the Key West Invitational
wrestling tournament.
When it finally was over,
Christopher Columbus High
School of Miami was in first
place, followed by Key West,
Doral Academy, Naples, Flanagan
and Coral Shores.
The host Conchs got off to a
good start, wrestling against
Doral. Ralph Major who


would have an undefeated after-
noon at 189 pounds got a quick
pin. So did 160-pound Cody Aydt.
Ben Covan won, too, at 135.
Each frenzied match became
more frenetic in an atmosphere of
shouted instructions from coaches
and teammates who sat on folding
chairs beneath the fingerprint-
smeared basketball backboard.
"Lift him up!" ... "Work, Ben
work!" ..."Half-nelson!"
"Circle, circle!" ... "Arm bar!" ..
"Break him down!"
Key West coach John Moeller,
in his Dockers and red shirt, cir-
cled the edge of the mat with arms
spread, crouched like the wrestler
he once was. One hand held a
clipboard, the other a pen.
Defeats were hard to take.

Then ICS stays at its
Islamorada campus to host
local rival Marathon High
School at 4 p.m. Friday.
Monday, the Lady Eagles
take on Plantation Key
Middle School at 4 p.m. at
Founders Park.
Island .Christian ran into
trouble earlier this week, los-
ing to a potent Palmer Trinity
team, 8-0. Palmer improved


to 8-2 on the season.
The Eagle boys basketball
team took on a new program

A short -time later, senior
George Hoffman hit Matt
DeFillips with a pass, which he
set and fired high over the
Victors' goalie from just outside
the box for the 2-0 lead.
The Dolphins' early burst was
finished off when Alex Wright
was fouled in the box and netted
the penalty kick low to the left,
giving the Dolphins a 3-0 lead.
After the Victors scored on a
breakaway goal, Murphy put his.
starting defense back in the
game to secure the lead.
Murphy said the team played
a bit selfishly in the second half,
with players more concerned
with scoring than ball movement
and control. He was pleased with
the team's effort though.
"It was nice to see them tak-
ing shots, but at least have an
angle where the ball can go in,"
he said. "I'm trying to get them
to start passing the ball around
and make them understand the
ball moves a lot faster than they
can. They keep improving each
game, which is nice."

Lady Conch soccer crushes Miami Edison


Key West's
scoring margin
goes to 44-4
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

"It gets kind of old," senior
Kara Haack said Saturday night
after yet another 8-0 mercy-
rule victory by the Key West
High School girls soccer team,
this time over Miami Edison.
Haack scored two goals -
as did freshman Jasmine Jones


and senior Kaitlin Hopkins -
as the Conchs continued their
dominance over District 16-4A
opponents.
"I liked the way Kaitlin
stepped up," coach Scott Paul
said. "She has wanted to be
more dynamic in the offense,
and now she has finally devel-
oped the skills to do that."
The game ended just after
the second half had begun
when the ball caromed off an
Edison player into the net for
the eighth Conch goal.

free-throw line," Thiery said.
"Shooting 33 percent from the
line isn't going to help you in very
many games."
The Canes hit four 3-pointers
"but we took a whole lot of shots
to get those," the coach said. "And
we only played two good quarters
of defense."
Friday, the Canes fell to
unbeaten Miami Country Day (4-
0), 51-40.
Senior Chris Noble made his
regular-season debut with 10
points, the Hurricanes' only dou-
ble-digit scoring performance.
Noble, the team's leading scor-
er last year, missed the first two
games with an ankle injury suf-
fered in practice.
. "It's nice to get Chris back but
it's going to take him a while to
get where he needs to be," Thiery
said.
Early turnovers slowed the
Hurricanes against Country Day's
Spartans, who pulled out to a 16-8
lead in the first quarter. Fowler,
the Canes' senior center, had two
buckets for half the Coral Shores
points in the period.
Leon's 3-pointer with 30 sec-
onds before halftime brought
Coral Shores within 27-19, but the


Spartans.answered with their own
trey with two seconds left for a
30-19 edge at the break.
Country Day threatened to
blow it open at 42-23 in the third
before the Canes scored seven
points in the final minute, 10 sec-
onds. Fowler scored on a putback
of his own miss, Ferro drained a 3
and Dixon drove the lane for a
contested layup at the buzzer to
trail 42-30 going into the last
quarter.
But Coral Shores could only
close the gap by one more point in
the fourth.
"I thought we played hard,
executed well and moved the
ball," Thiery said. "Fowler was
battling underneath."
He added, "Country Day just
made more shots than we did. The
ball has got to go in the hole."
Coral Shores closes its four-
game home stand against Ransom
on Thursday.
"We know Ransom will
always be a tough District [16-
3A] battle," Thiery said.
After Ransom, the Canes play
on the road for two weeks until a
Dec. 20 home game against Key
West High School.
Coral Shores visits Archbishop
Carroll on Dec. 13, and travels
south to Marathon High School
on Dec. 18.


Key West improved to 6-3
overall and is 6-0 in the dis-
trict, outscoring opponents, 44-
4.
Senior Kriz Menez also
scored for the Conchs when she
raced by the keeper on the left
side and then dribbled deftly up
the end line before kicking the


ball into the net. "That was a
designed play," Paul said.
"Krizzie has done some special
stuff for us this year."
The Conchs got a strong
game from Gigi Orofino, who
got assists on two crossing
kicks. Morgan Saunders also
recorded an assist on a cross.


All the crossing pleased Paul,
who has been emphasizing an
outside-in game.
The Conchs' only close
league victory was a 3-2 tri-
umph against St. Brendan in
Miami. They will play the
Sabres again at 4 p.m. Friday at
the high school field.


Johnson leads Lady Canes to a win


By KEVIN WADLOW

Coral Shores' girls basket-
ball team got its offense
rolling Monday.
The Hurricanes (1-3) rang
up a 54-22 win at home
against district opponent
Maritime and Science
Technology Academy.
Veteran guard Cassandra
Howard connected on two 3-
pointers in the first quarter to
put the Canes up early over
the visiting Lady Makos.
Then freshman Latrice
Johnson went on a binge in the
second quarter, dominating


the paint to score 16 points in
eight minutes.
Johnson would close with a
game-high 21 points.
The Lady Canes rolled into
halftime with a comfortable
35-10 lead.
Freshman Breana Casey
scored seven points, including
a 3-pointer in the second half.
Senior center Ana Ismer
scored five points and played
well on the rebounding end.
The Lady Hurricanes play
six more games in the next
two weeks before Christmas
break.
Four of the games will be in
the Hurricane gym. Next up
are two District 16-3A teams,


Ransom Everglades on

Lady Conchs win another


Storr nails
five treys
for Key West
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


In a game whose start was
delayed more than three hours by
a wrestling tournament, the Key
West High School girls basketball
team patiently wore down Miami
Springs for a 58-49 victory
Saturday night at the Bobby
Menendez Gym.
"It was a whole team effort,
beautiful to see," said coach
Glenn Hayes, whose Conchs
snapped a two-game losing streak
to improve to 5-2, including two
victories in a preseason tourna-
ment. They play again at 4 p.m.
Friday at home against Coral
Reef.
Miami Springs, which arrived
in Key West at 11 a.m. for JV and
varsity games that had been
scheduled for 3 and 4:30, passed
the day eating pizza and napping
on the bleachers until the
wrestling was finished.


But the Golden Hawks looked
sharp early and led 15-5 after the
first quarter.
The Conchs, though, turned up
the defensive pressure in the sec-
ond quarter, and sophomore
Chelsea Storr lit up the scoreboard
with four of her five high-arching
3-point shots. She led the team
with 17 points.
Guard Daphne Barnett also hit
a 3-pointer in the second period
and guard Samantha Campbell
added six points as the Conchs
surged to a 27-22 halftime lead.
Key West never trailed again,
sparked in the second half by for-
ward Kim Jones, who finished
with nine points, and guard Alicia


Arrazola, who had 11.
"She controlled the team and
got the ball inside," Hayes said of
Arrazola, who, when she wasn't
passing, made a 3-pointer to go
along with two medium-range
shots and a driving layup.
The game had a stunning num-
ber of fouls Key West was six
of 17 from the free-throw line and
Miami Springs was 18 of 41. The
Conchs kept fouling until the end,
allowing Miami Springs to score
the game's final eight points.
When the final buzzer sound-
ed, it was 9:45, the time the
Golden Hawks (1-6) had expect-
ed, back at the beginning of their
long day, to be home.

Lady Fins still winless


Short roster,
injuries, more
taking a toll
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon High School
girls basketball team continued
to struggle early this season,
falling to Westminster Christian
Monday, 61-11.
The team has been dealing
with injuries, a short bench and a
coaching change after just the
first game of the season.
New coach Amanda
Hirschauer, who was an assistant
on the resurgent girls soccer
team before taking the helm of
the basketball squad following
the resignation of Robert Lalena,
said while the score was lop-
sided there were some positives
to take from the game.
"They're strong. defensively
and it's just a matter of starting
to convert offensive points.
There were a lot more attempts
and chances for points" then the
last game, Hirschauer said.
The team had 31 shots, many
inside near the basket, but was
unable to put point on the board.
Defensively, the Dolphins (0-
3) had eight steals and they
rebounded well, nabbing 27
boards in the game. Ten of those
rebounds came on the offensive


glass.
Seniors Jessica Brier and
Alexis Culver each had six
rebounds to lead the Dolphins,
while junior Vanessa Sardina
had five.
The Dolphins scored seven of
their, 11 points in the first quar-
ter, but Hirschauer said missed
baskets gradually led to the
Warriors building a sizeable
lead.

roster against Westminster and
senior Melanie Boyd sprained an
ankle in the game as well.
Hirschauer said the team will
be installing a new offense for
their next game in an effort to

generate scoring.
"They just don't control the
ball enough to keep it from the
other team. They'll make
progress; by the end of the year
they'll be good," she said.
The Dolphins face another
tough foe in Florida Christian

Belen overpowers Conchs in home opener


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Clearly at a disadvantage in the
fundamentals of the game, the
Key West High School boys bas-
ketball team lost its home opener
to Belen Jesuit, 80-53, Friday
night at the Bobby Menendez
Gym.
Eleven players scored for
Belen, whose speed, trapping
defense and pinpoint passing led
to a rash of easy baskets. "They
had at least 25 layups," Key West
coach Paul Davis said. "We didn't
get back on defense, and when we
did, we didn't rotate in our zone."


Belen got off to a 16-5 lead,
but its advantage was narrowed
early in the second quarter after
Davis put sophomore Zach
Babich at the post position.
Babich scored seven points in a
row to cut the lead to 28-23 before
the Wolverines went on a 14-1 run
for a 42-24 halftime lead.
While Belen scored with ease,
the undisciplined Conchs fired up
long and erratic shots. They shot
25 percent and, in the third quar-
ter, went six and a half minutes
without as basket as Belen built a
29-point lead.


"We have plays but we don't
run them," Davis said. "We don't
get set up right away. Players say,
'Oh, I can take this guy one-on-
one, I do it downtown,' but this
isn't downtown. You have to learn
to play within a system."
The Conchs were led by fresh-
man point guard Keith Valdez,
who scored 16 points, and sopho-


more forward Irekaz Womack-
Ashe, who had 14.
Babich was Key West's lone
inside presence. The 6-foot-5 sen-
ior Richie Cormack sat uncom-
fortably on the bench with a black
eye and a broken collarbone suf-
fered in a fight unrelated to bas-
ketball he is out for the season.
"We finally get a big man to


build around, and now it's back to
the beginning," Davis said. "It's
frustrating."
The Conchs fell to 0-3 overall
and 0-1 in District 16-4A. They
played Westlake Prep Tuesday
night in Davie in a game complet-
ed after press time. They return
home to meet Northwest Christian
at 7 p.m. Friday.


Plenty of pain, little soccer gain


Conchs fall
to Edison in
physical game

'Keynoter Contributor

A Miami Edison High
School player left the field with
blood streaming from his ear.
Then Key West's Rennie
Disrud-Joris was carried away
in agony. Just another soccer
afternoon.
The Conchs were already
four goals down Saturday in

Disrud-Joris, who had a sore
thigh to begin with, had his
groin stepped on. He lay howl-
ing on the sideline as his par-
ents leaned over him.
Trainer Tim Donald arrived,
and Disrud-Joris was helped
into a golf cart and taken to the
training room where, through
gritted teeth, he said that pain
was no stranger "I've been
kicked in the head a couple of
times."
Donald unwrapped the tape
from the sophomore's thigh and
applied an ice bag. After about
10 minutes of lying on a table,
with the sounds of the game
carrying through an open door,
Disrud-Joris got to his feet. "I
need to go back in," he said.
Coach Jason "Clifford expects
me to lead the team."

He then asked Donald if he
could play the rest of the game.
"I don't think it's worth it,"
Donald said. "I think we need to
take the rest of the day off."
Disrud-Joris went back to
the bench but couldn't stay seat-
ed. "You can tell he wants to go
back in," said his father, Tom
Joris. "He's got a lot of spirit
and heart."
"Rennie was doing great,"
Clifford said later. "His body
just broke down."
The Conchs, who lost Friday
night to Florida Christian, 4-3,
despite two goals by Marlon
Briones and one by Phillip
Young, are now 0-8. It was the
second time this season they
lost, 6-0, to Edison.
"They intimidated us,"
Clifford said. "We are a young
team that is physically breaking
down and does not have any
mental endurance."

Offshore
There have been no sub-
stantial reports of boats
going very far offshore the
past %week. The distinct prob-
ability of a blackfin tuna bite
on any of the humps is good,
though, and on a calm day a
ride offshore to the
Islamorada or 409 humps
can and will produce tuna.

Reefs
The highlight of the w eek
\was the first sailfish touma-
ment of the year. the
Islamorada Sailfish
Tournament Isee column to
the nghti.
It'. not just sailfish: it
seems there are also plenty
of nice dolphin being caught
on the reef this week. One
brought in at the tournament
was more than 17 pounds.

Gulf, bay
With some reasonably
nice weather this week, the
gulf waters were tested.
The consensus is that the
Sparush mackerel are on and
it is well wornh one's lime to
run to the venerablee Spngger
Bank area w ith chum and
bght spinning tackle. Keep
your eyes peeled for tripletail
while cruising past the stone-
crab buo,;, as the time is
now to find those crazy and
tasty critters m the gulf.
The gulf tides move a
considerable amount and
variety of bait. The botton is
lush with man) species of
grasses that are home to
predator and prey alike. With
thjs in mind, other that when
the w. ind is blo\ mgn. the gulf
\ ill provide great angling -
and catching for a variety of
fish throughout winter and
into the spring.

Flats, backcountry
The Flarmngo area this
past week has been great.
good. fair and lousy. But of
course, each day conditions
change and the tide, %wind
speed and wind direction
usually determine our suc-
cess or lack of it.

Sails' bite turns to dust


'Catch-22' wins
weekend with
nine releases

The sailfish bite leading up to
the 44th annual Islamorada
Sailfish Tournament came in
like a lion
and by the
time the
e vent
e ended,
went out
like a lamb.
The
week prior,
man y
i upside-
down sail-
fish flags
were seen
Cal Sutphin hanging
from the
riggings of most boats at Whale
Harbor, Holiday Isle and Bud 'n
Mary's, all in Islamorada, so to
say that many thought they
would outfish last year's total of
more than 400 sails released
would be an understatement.
The competition was based
out of Whale Harbor and is a
favorite among fishing captains
as sailfish competitions go.
According to Jaime Platt.on the
Main Attraction from Key
Colony Beach, "With this event
being run by the Islamorada
Charter Boat Association, they
have made it so you can fish the
way you find easiest to catch
your clients sailfish. Most tour-
naments don't allow live chum-
ming, but this one does. That's
the way a lot of us fish normally
for sailfish. Ask any of the other
captains what their favorite tour-
nament to fish in is and most
will say this one."
The three-day tournament
started Friday with 34 teams tak-
ing to the water, coming from as
far as Miami and Summerland
Key. Director Dianne Harbaugh
was surprised when the bite that
morning started slow.
"The week leading up, these
same captains were putting up
some big numbers, but then we
got some really nice weather and
things slowed down," she said.
I Funny to say that nice weath-
er was unfortunate, but that was
exactly the case. Winds from the
east/southeast will knock a good
bite down'a.few-i neLRs.
