But McPherson
won't 'recognize'
that decision
By ALYSON CREAN
and KYLE TEAL
acrean@keynoter.com

Monroe County Attorney
Suzanne Hutton- and county
Tourist Development Council
Chairman Todd Firm had a battle
of wills this week over who has
final say on the agenda for
Tuesday's TDC meeting.
The question is vital, as Key
West Mayor Morgan McPherson
wants to add an item to take a
vote on firing TDC Marketing
Director Harold Wheeler.
"It's not going to be on the
agenda," Hutton finally said
Friday, "but they can discuss it
and there are ways to get it
added."
The meeting is at 10 a.m.
Tuesday at the DoubleTree Grand
Key Resort in Key West.
When McPherson, who sits on
the TDC board, requested adding
the agenda item to fire Wheeler,
Firm denied it. Citing TDC poli-
cy, Firm noted that he, as chair-


man, has final say in all agenda
items.
Hutton sent an e-mail to Firm
saying that as chairman, he can-
not prevent the facilitation of
legitimate motions. Citing
Robert's Rules of Order, Hutton
noted that it was feasible to add
the resolution.
"Needless to say, I have
always found objectionable the
interpretation of the TDC rule
about the chair approving the
agenda to include the authority to
remove an item submitted by
another member or the legal
counsel," she wrote in an e-mail
to Firm.
"I don't recognize the fact that
it's not on the agenda,"
McPherson told the Keynoter
Friday. "When it's me on the City
Commission, I can't take a fellow
commissioner's item off the
agenda."
"Morgan's talking about a
new direction, a new agenda,"
Firm said. "There are other places
where that kind of item can be
discussed."
Items as drastic as the one
McPherson's proposing should
appear on the agenda as general


discussion or industry input
before being put up for a vote,
Firm said.
This week, Keys chambers of
commerce and the Lodging
Association of the Florida Keys
and Key West weighed in in favor
of Wheeler, calling him an effec-
tive worker with a positive atti-
tude.
"Our industry and the board of
directors of the Lodging
Association of the Florida Keys
and Key West should be entitled
to input on this decision, consid-
ering we are the funding vehicle
for the TDC," Lodging
Association President Jodi
Weinhofer wrote in a letter to the
TDC board Thursday. "We are
steadfast in our position that the
TDC should consider our full
support of Harold Wheeler and
continue his employment."
Wheeler was given glowing
evaluations from board members
at.their July 31 meeting. At that
meeting, his contract was
renewed for two years beginning
Sept. 30.
Wheeler's contract mandates
that in the event of immediate fir-
ing without cause, he receives
two months' worth of salary
amounting to just over $21,000.

'Means to an end'


SKATE / From 1

West to skateboard about 3,000-
miles through the southern states
with a German long board and
30-pound backpack. This comes
after traveling miles and miles
through other countries by either
bicycle or skateboard, and sailing
across the Atlantic.
The American trip would take
a little more than 41 hours,
according to www.mapquest
.com.
But a skateboard is a different
story .Thomson is thinking
four months.
SThe story of the 27-year-old
adventurer began when he was e-
mailing his brother while work-
ing as a translator in southern
Japan. His brother replied one
day with an e-mail that stirred
something in wild in Thomson.
"He said 'Rob your e-mails
are getting boring' and I agreed
with him," Thomson said.
The 9-to-5 lifestyle in Japan
was stuffy for Thomson, who
enjoys the outdoors.
So he hopped a bicycle and
rode through Central Asia and
Europe until he reached
Switzerland, cycling about 7,440
miles. But that wasn't enough.
After cycling by the cow pas-
tures of Switzerland, where the
roads were smooth and he could
easily ride 80 miles a day, he
said, he finally ditched the bicy-
cle and hopped on a skateboard,
rolling right back up to London


- about 1,000 miles.
From London, he sailed to the
Canary Islands, and finally
hooked up with a yachting com-
pany bound for Key West.
"What I'm doing the skate-
boarding and cycling it's just
means to an end," Thomson said.
"It's a means to different, unfa-
miliar place. To experience those
places at a real grassroots level. If
you're in a car or a train, the
scenery goes by like a. TV. But
when you're doing what I do, you
smell smells, you meet people,
you get rained on, you get sun-
burned. You get a better of sense
of what the surrounding environ-
ments all about."
But it's not all about adven-
ture. Thomson is raising money
and awareness for Lowe
Syndrome, a recessive disorder
carried only by males and with
symptoms like cataracts, .mental
retardation and*rickets.
He was inspired by American
Jack Smith, who also skateboard-
ed across the country after his son
died of Lowe Syndrome at age 14.
SSmith also inspired British
boarder Dave Cornthwaite, who
claimed the world record in
December 2006 by skateboarding
3,000 miles across Australia for
the disorder, according to www
.lowetrust.com.
Now Thomson has his eye on
the record, and aims to raise
about $5,000.
He periodically checks and
updates his Web site, www
.14degrees.org.


Counseling offered


CARJACK/ From I

backseat when the carjacking
happened.
Ocean Reef is offering coun-
seling services for employees and
the Ocean Reef Foundation is'
setting up a fund for her family.
Florida Highway Patrol Lt.
Pat Santangelo said the carjacker
was burned beyond recognition,
so troopers are going to review
tapes from the Shell station to see
if they can ID him from those.
Police said Holderman and the
sous chef were at the gas pump at
Sthe Shell station when the armed
carjacker jumped into' the car
with the passenger still inside.
With officers reportedly giv-
ing chase, the assailant sped
. south on U.S, .1, .swerving.all


over the road, and ultimately lost
control at a construction site
about 12:30 a.m. He crashed into
a semi-trailer hauling food,
destroying the car and the rig in a
fiery conflagration.
The two vehicles essentially
became one, burst into flames,
and traveled roughly 1,000 feet
back north, tossing debris along
the way.
The truck driver, who was
able to jump from the burning
cab, was treated at the scene
before being taken to a hospital.
The stolen car was charred
beyond recognition.
The deaths were the 21st and
22nd traffic fatalities south of
Florida City this year.

Judge says
they're all

Cay Clubs celebrated a legal
victory in Monroe County

of its motion to separate a law-

The case stems from
Marathon's Sombrero Resort,
where a number of plaintiffs
filed a complaint of 16 different
instances of what they call
orchestrated fraud. Judge David
Audlin agreed each property sale
represented a different action,
and separated the cases.
But he agreed with the plain-
tiffs that each part would request
similar information and asked the
two sides to expedite the process.
Audlin will hear all the cases
himself, and suggested he may
consider rejoining them at a later
date.
SThe lawyers representing Cay
Clubs Wednesday filed last week
to be removed from the case.
SThe request for removal says
they can no longer get in touch
with their clients and that Cay
Clubs had not paid its bills.
Charles Phoenix of Phoenix Law
Partners in Fort Myers said after
the hearing they would address
that motion at a later hearing.
In the case against Cay Clubs,
plaintiffs allege the company
sold them condominiums as
investments and failed to deliver
on promises of renovation and
rental income. One of Cay
Clubs' investors, Sunvest,
recently took back the property.
Cay Clubs denies allegations of
.wrongdoing in this and other
cases along the Gulf coast of
Florida.
Sunvest has not returned
repeated phone calls for com-
ment.

Keys Opinion


Make mitigation fees

at least reasonable

When is no news good news?
If you happen to own property on Big Pine Key and attended
the Monroe County Planning Commission meeting this week,
you might feel that way.
A planning staff proposal, floated last month, eyed the likeli-
hood of charging as much as $98,000 in impact fees to the cost
of pulling a building permit.
This was tied to mitigation requirements outlined in the
Habitat Conservation Plan negotiated between the county and
U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.
The HCP sets out ground rules that severely restrict develop-
ment on Big Pine ard No Name keys, which just happen to be
in the National Key Deer Refuge. Key deer are endangered and
protected under federal law, and so is their habitat.
As reported by the Keynoter, the county used public funds in
the past to help with mitigation, acquiring lots that would be
conserved as part of that overall goal to avoid overly intense
development adjoining the refuge.
At Wednesday's meeting, commission Chairman Randy Wall
urged the staff to go back to the drawing board. This, after hear-
ing loads of complaints from the public about the size of the fees
proposed and the unfairness of applying it now, and not before.
In today's Keynoter, Key West Bureau Chief Alyson Crean
explains that the federal requirements could reduce such fees
significantly, perhaps to no more than 25 percent of the costs.
While a cut from $98,000 to something like $25,000 might
seem like a big concession, it's not if you're the one who's wait-
ed patiently for a dozen years or more to build, already complied
with previous mitigation requirements and still face yet another
budget-buster.
That's why the commission's decision to take no action and its
request to staff for a revised plan is good news.
The next meeting is set for Jan. 8. We hope the planners and
their counterparts at the federal level come up with a holiday
stocking that's not filled with coal.

Willi deal closes a chapter

Like many this past week, we heard the call for firing Tom
Willi as county administrator "for cause."
A vocal and well-organized group from the Upper Keys led the
charge.
They bristled at the idea of Willi getting a generous severance
package when they wanted him pilloried and forced to sue for
any wages owed under his contract.
Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed and the county can now
move on without more public spectacle and wasted vitriol.

TDC's success is direct result of Wheeler, his staff


EDITOR:
It has been my good fortune to not only chair
the District V Advisory Committee to the
Monroe County Tourist Development Council
for the past seven years,but it has also been my
good fortune to be a member of the District V
Advisory Committee since 1995.
As the owner of a tourism-related business, I
have watched, both carefully and apprehensive-
ly, the Florida Keys go through some monumen-
tal changes and challenges over the past 12
years. The Keys landscape has changed from a
sleeping fishing village to an upscale destina-
tion; we've gone from a simple diving and fish-
ing destination to a diverse, culturally rich and
environmentally rich destination; we've watched
it go from slow change to stealth-like develop-
ment; we've weathered the worst hurricane sea-
sons on record and one of the worst disasters in
recent history, 9/11.
And through it all, the Florida Keys managed
to remain a top destination. Our bed-tax dollars
continue to grow. Our occupancy remains strong
and each year we see more and more visitors.


Those who think this happened by sheer luck
- are surely fools themselves. It has happened
because of the good guidance and wise deci-
sions of the TDC. It has happened because of
the expertise of the respective agencies of
record such as Tinsley Advertising and
NewmanPR. But most of all, it has happened
because of the leadership, knowledge and vision
of the TDC's marketing director, Harold
Wheeler, and his staff.
The Florida Keys' future successes depend
on people like this and I believe, no matter what
challenges are posed to this team, they will meet
those challenges and they will continue to make
the Florida Keys a viable, healthy destination.
With a track record as good as theirs, why
would one assume otherwise?

Editor's note: The TDC meets at 10 a.m.
Tuesday at the DoubleTree Grand Key Resort in
Key West. Wheeler's firing will be discussed and
possibly voted on.


Business steps up in wake of refuge theft


EDITOR:
The National Key Deer Refuge would like to
thank business owner Lynn Newman of
Newman Outfitters on Big Pine Key for the
recent donation of a telescope to the volunteers
who staff the Blue Hole site of the refuge.
The volunteers provide the telescope for pub-
lic use to observe wildlife in and around the
Blue Hole. This replaces a telescope that was
stolen from a locked storage box at the Blue
Hole a couple of weeks ago. Vandals broke into
the box, stealing the scope, damaging the alu-

EDITOR:
On behalf of the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office Animal Farm, I want to thank several
recent contributors to the farm. The farm is sup-
ported primarily by donations and uses no tax dol-
lars in its.maintenance or operation.
Byars Used Furniture and Appliances in
Marathon donated a refrigerator/freezer for storing
fresh fruit and vegetables, and medications for the

+ The Key West Garden Club donated six
juvenile trees for our new Patagonian cavy habitat.
Marathon High School invited Wilbur the
potbelly pig to its homecoming pep rally and
made a donation for his appearance.
+ Caroline and William West made a generous
monetary donation.
My sincere thanks go out to everyone for their
help and contributions of time, money, and sup-
port of the farm. I would also like to invite the
community to come visit us for our annual

replacement is several hundred dollars.
This telescope will enhance opportunities for
visitors to observe local wildlife. The Blue Hole
is a popular spot attracting approximately
90,000 visits a year. It is one of the more popu-

Keys Opinion

One-way streets are a bad idea


EDITOR:
I recently read in the Keynoter
that Key West was converting
streets to one-way. I know Key
West already has many one-way
streets and I was always sad-
dened to see that. Want to
destroy a neighborhood? Make
one-way streets. Want to destroy
a community? Make one-way
streets. Want to destroy a city?
Make one-way streets.
One-way streets means only
one thing: Faster driving. Move
people around the city faster,
meaning more people will come.
It won't increase safety; it will
decrease safety. But worst of all,
it will mean a faster pace, more
cars, more speed.
The city says it will add park-
ing spaces. What does that
mean? It means more cars in
Key West. You want less cars.


How about a trolley, with open
seating to get on and off on the
side (and it moves slowly, slow-
ing the pace down) and free
- going around downtown, up
and down the main streets?
Make it harder to park and more
likely to use a trolley. Foot traf-
fic is good. It's healthy and live-
ly. Some people would rather
drive and look for parking than
walk six blocks. Let them walk.
It's best for them and all.
To learn more about how one-
way streets destroy, read Jane
Jacobs' "The Death and Life of
Great American Cities." No city
planner is worth his salt if he or
she does not know the principles
of that book. Citizens who want
to keep a city alive should read
it.

Keys want to recycle


EDITOR:
I am very happy to see all of
the information regarding recy-
cling recently. However, I am
still confused. I live in
Islamorada and you have not
given any specifics regarding
what is and is not recyclable
through Onyx.
Can I recycle plastics No. 1
through 6? Can I put old maga-
zines bundled separately in my
bin? Are the lids off plastic bot-
tles, if removed, recyclable? Can
I put white printer paper and dis-
carded junk mail, separately bun-
dled, in the bin?


I was disturbed to read that if
the bin is "contaminated," you
may throw all of the items in the
garbage. If you want more of us
to recycle and do it properly, you
need to give very specific details
about what is recyclable and how
it needs to be presented at the
curb.

McPherson, Di Gennaro


trying to stuff the TDC


It appears certain power brokers want to get
rid of Harold Wheeler, the longtime market-
ing director of the Tourist Development
Council.
Key West Mayor Morgan McPherson intro-
duced the agenda item for Tuesday's TDC
board meeting in Key West. McPherson sits
on the Board by virtue of being the mayor of
Key West.
He's being strongly supported by County
Commissioner Mario Di Gennaro, who also
sits on the TDC board in a chair held for the
Monroe County mayor.
Well, Di Gennaro is no longer the Monroe
County mayor and should not let his person-
al vendetta against Wheeler cloud his judg-
ment. '
Di Gennaro went ballistic this
summer when the TDC and the
five district advisory councils all
opposed spending another $2 mil-
lion. of TDC money to help sink
the USS Vandenberg.
DAC 1 had already pledged $1
million from their capital funds
and the TDC board committed
another $800,000 on top of that,
for a total bed tax commitment of
$1.8 million.
Separately, Di Gennaro had
pledged $2 million from the coun-
ty, only it turns out he wanted that Wayne Ih
pledge to be picked up by the Keynoter
TDC a clear contravention of
the TDC mission and long history
of spreading bed tax dollars by district.
Wheeler was clearly in the cross hairs after
that Vandenberg brouhaha.
Few, not even McPherson, attack Wheeler
based on job performance.
That's because the TDC has managed to
market the Keys as a tourist destination
through good times and bad and Wheeler gets
to take some credit, since he's been in the top
post for 12 years.
The TDC's quick and focused response
after 9/11 was one of the best demonstrations
Sof this experience in handling crisis. Air trav-
el was at a virtual standstill and fear of flying
was no longer just a book title.
Wheeler worked closely with Tirisley
Advertising and Andy Newman, the TDC's
public-relations guru, and they targeted often
over-looked drive markets to refill the tourist
pipeline.
"The Islands You Can Drive To" became a
much-talked-about marketing campaign,
admired by competitors in the Bahamas and
envied by competing Florida destinations that
can't easily usurp the Keys' islands appeal.
Keys hotels, restaurants and attractions
bounced back faster than any other tourism
market in Florida.
Wheeler's experience in marketing has
earned him top awards from the tourism
industry as well as a key post on the state's


Visit Florida advisory boards.
OK, so that's the case in support of
Wheeler.
What about those who want to get rid of
Wheeler?
Well, McPherson has a personal grudge
against the TDC marketing director, made
evident in September when it came to light
that Key West's mayor was booted from the
TDC board for missing too many meetings.
County ordinance says missing three consec-
utive meetings, or four within one fiscal year,
disqualifies a member.
Enter, stage right, Di Gennaro, who was
then county mayor. Di Gennaro calls a special
meeting of the County Commission with the
express purpose of reappointing McPherson
to the TDC board.
This happened just a few weeks
after Di Gennaro engineered the
removal of hotel veteran Matt
Babich from the board, replacing
him with Freddy Varela, who
works for Historic Tours of
America.
Babich has won every award
... there is for lodging general man-
agers, plus he serves on Visit
Florida's top governing council.
Di Gerinaro also appointed
Marathon hotel man Jim Rhyne to
larkham the TDC board representing the
Publisher DAC 4 area (Islamorada). That's
where Rhyne lives not where
he operates his Coconut Cay
motel in Marathon.
This stirs up a hornets nest as lodging asso-
ciation officials, chamber officials and busi-
ness leaders in Islamorada, Key West and the
Lower Keys all look at the wholesale changes
being made to the TDC board and cry foul.
They want to see TDC representatives who
conduct business in their community, since
that's where the bed-tax dollars are generated.
This debate embroiled county attorney
Suzanne Hutton in a round robin of interpret-
ing TDC governance, the residency rule for
.TDC appointments and just this week -
how to apply Robert's Rules of Order to the
way the TDC operates.
It's enough to.make your head spin.
This much we know.
McPherson and Di Gennaro can't claim
that Wheeler is not doing his job.
Nope. This is about politics, as raw and as
blatant as any in recent memory.
This also might.be a good time for county
Mayor Sonny McCoy to step up to the plate
and take back the TDC seat that belongs to
the mayor's office. At least Sonny can restore
some sense of history about what makes the
Keys a long-lived destination.
We hope Todd Firm, a Key Largo dive
operator and the TDC chairman, stands firm
Tuesday and that other TDC board members
join him in repulsing this blatant power grab.

Slate pays state


election fine


$8,000 penalty
stems from 2006
House campaign
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The race is long over, but a
Florida House GOP candidate
from Key Largo just paid $8,000
in fines for election-law viola-
tions.
The Florida Elections
Commission found that Spencer
Slate violated state law when he
withdrew money from his cam-
paign account that exceeded
legal caps.
Slate, now a member of the
Florida Keys Community
College board of trustees, said
Friday that he paid the fines, but
says payment is not an admis-
sion of wrongdoing.
"It wasn't worth it to fight it,"
he said. "We did nothing illegal
or dishonest. I settled because
we did not want to hurt Bill
[Andersen's] reputation."
Andersen served as Slate's
campaign treasurer.
In 2006, Slate was one of five
Republican candidates for the
open state House District 120
seat. Former County
Commissioner David Rice won
the primary in September that
year but was soundly defeated in
the general election by Ron
Saunders.
Upper Keys resident Kurt
Rockenbach filed the complaint
against Slate in August 2006.
According to a final Elections
Commission order issued Nov.
30, Slate's campaign incorrectly
reported a number of petty-cash
expenditures, all of which
exceeded legal limits.
According to Slate's financial
record submitted to the
Elections Division, he withdrew
close to $5,000 as petty cash or
checks written to himself from
his campaign account. Four of
those withdrawals were in lump
sums of $1,000. And six times
he withdrew more than $500 per
week.
According to Florida statute,
a candidate cannot withdraw
more than $500 per week. In
addition, the law stipulates the
petty-cash fund "shall be spent


I
only in amounts less than $100
and only for office supplies,
transportation expenses and
other necessities,"
Slate called a number of the
charges "ridiculous," citing a
$127 bill for Office Depot for
sign materials. According to the
commission's findings, that
expense exceeded the legal
petty-cash limit of $100.
Slate noted that if he had
hired a sign company instead of
making his own, he might not
have been hammered with that
violation.


Upper Keys
resident Kurt
Rockenbach
filed the
complaint
against
Spencer
Slate in
August 2006.


In Count 10, the commission
found Slate spent petty cash on
"unauthorized items" when he
claimed dry-cleaning expenses.
On Friday, Slate defended the
expenses.
"It's hard to convince people
in Tallahassee that wearing a suit
every day for 18 months is not
normal," he said. "Dry cleaning
is an expense you would never
have living in the Keys."
Slate, who owns and operates
a dive operation, says he wears
shorts and T-shirts every day.
Prior to the complaint filed
against him, Slate filed a com-
plaint against Rice. It alleged
Rice did not comply with the
state's resign-to-run law when
he announced his intention to
run while still sitting on the
County Commission. A
Tallahassee judge ruled that Rice
was indeed a viable candidate.

Search starts for Willi replacement


Frederick's
administrator
for the interim
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Acting Monroe County
Administrator Debbie
Frederick will bring a plan to
search for a new administrator
to the County Commission at
its Dec. 19 meeting now that
the commission voted 3-2 to
end its contract with Tom
Willi.
"No one has showed any
interest yet," Frederick said
Friday.
According to terms of his
termination, Willi will serve
the next 30 days in a consult-
ing capacity from his home
and receive $282,000 in sever-
ance. The Wednesday firing
ended his three-year tenure
with the county. His contract
had been slated to expire in
October 2008.
Frederick said she offered
to fill in with no additional
compensation as long as the


search doesn't take more than
two or three months.
"I didn't want to take a
salary increase," she said,
"because in January the coun-
ty is going to have to turn
around and make some cuts."
Commissioner Dixie
Spehar called for Willi's ter-
mination without cause. She
and commissioners George
Neugent and Sylvia Murphy
voted to end Willi's contract.
Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro and Mayor Sonny
McCoy cast the "no" votes.
"To terminate him in 30
days," Di Gennaro said, "to
put this county without a
county administrator with so
many projects ongoing and not
have a normal transition, I
think is horrible."
"I do not believe this action
puts the county in jeopardy,"
Spehar said.
Her motion was termination
without cause, and there was
no discussion of her reasoning
behind ending his contract.
Nine people signed up to
speak before the vote was cast,


and only two criticized Willi.
Rudy Krause, a Stock
Island property owner, said the
commission "has not shown
the public enough justification
to remove Willi from office."
Willi first came under fire
more than a year ago when, at
the last minute in the budget-
ing process, he added two big-
ticket items to the budget for
$5.75 million total: The coun-
ty's purchase of the Stock
Island restaurant the Hickory
House and a commitment to
invest $2 million to sink a ship
off Key West as an artificial
reef.
Willi has "been a scapegoat
for the Vandenberg," Di
Gennaro said. "I wanted it. We
voted for it, not Tom Willi. I'll
take responsibility because I
wanted it."
Joe Weatherby, who is
heading up the effort to sink
the 520-foot former military
ship, spoke up on Willi's
behalf.
"Every action I've seen him
take is in the interest of the
taxpayers of this county, with-
out fail," he said.
Willi has also come under


fire for budget shortfalls.
In January, County Clerk
Danny Kolhage sent Willi a
letter warning him that if the
county continued to spend at
its current rate, it would be in
the red by the end of the year.
Adjustments were made, but
statewide tax reform passed in
June didn't make the picture
any rosier in recent months.
Frederick will take the lead
in the search for a new admin-
istrator. Spehar instructed her
to start with a short-term
search in the "tri-county"


South Florida area, then
expand it if no solid candi-
dates are found.
Willi ended the special
meeting by thanking the com-
mission, the citizens and the
staff.
"I have found the last three
years very fulfilling, very
exciting," he said. "You have a
lot of challenges, but this
organization is up to the chal-
lenges. I just want to thank
you for the opportunity to
serve you and the residents of
this county and the staff."

Final piece of marina coming together


New bathhouse
will provide
more services
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The soon-to-be constructed
bathhouse at the City of
Marathon Marina will be the final
piece of a three-part plan Deputy
City Manager C.J. Geotis envi-
sioned after taking control of
what was a struggling operation.
The City Council is scheduled
to vote on a resolution that will
authorize staff to negotiate a final
price with Pedro Falcon
Electrical Contractors Inc. to
build the bathhouse, and Geotis
said he expects a final cost will be
presented to the council at a Jan.
19 special meeting.
"It's pretty much a done deal,
the new contractor is agreeable to
everything that needs to be done,
so now it's just a matter of proce-
dure," Geotis said.
With the completion of the
228-mooring-ball field in Boot
Key Harbor and 410 feet of float-
ing dock space, the marina is
scheduled to turn a profit for the
first time since Marathon incor-
porated.
"Those were my three big
goals and I have two of them
accomplished," Geotis said. "The
folks coming into the marina now
are saying it's the nicest facility
they've stayed in; they're happy
with the improvements."
Geotis said the bathhouse will
be a single-story building,
approximately 2,000 square feet
in size, with a laundry facility,
men's and women's bathrooms
and a dozen individual showers
with a toilet.
"It's going to be concrete
block and stuccoed on the out-
side. On the inside, all the interi-
or walls are concrete and will
have a two-part epoxy coating so
we can hit it with a pressure
washer and clean it," he said.
"We're also putting in a system of
keycards so we can monitor
who's actually marina customers.
It'll be great for us; much better
security."
Geotis said the bathhouse will
be much-needed infrastructure to
match the increased number of
residents in the harbor.
The city has also contracted
with ADAAG Consulting Services
to address some harbor residents'

concerns with the marina being
compliant with the Americans with
Disabilities Act. Geotis said he
expect the final report to be done
by the beginning of next week.
"In short order, the marina will
be ADA compliant," he said.


The City Council recently
approved new rates and fees at
the marina. The mooring-ball fee
will now be a flat $250 fee,
encompassing the ball, parking,
dinghy dockage, pumpout and
use of shower facilities.


For the floating dock, which
can accommodate between eight
and 14 boats depending on size, in-
season rates are $18.50 per foot per
month. Summer rates are $13.75
per foot per month and are in effect
from May 1 through Oct. 31.

Trap rule remains, for now

By KEVIN WADLOW -
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com rn --


With the most contentious
issue taken off the table at the
start, few changes to state lobster
laws given initial approval
Thursday mattered much to the
large crowd.
But public testimony still last-
ed nearly four hours before the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission voted
at the Key Largo session.
"We cannot experiment with
this .industry," FWC Chairman
Rodney Barreto said. "We have
to nail it down and get it right."
Barreto, a Key Largo week-
ender from Miami, was re-elect-
ed chairman of the FWC board
earlier in the meeting.
Commercial lobster trappers
filled the conference room at the
Marriott Key Largo Bay Resort,
most wanting to let the FWC
board hear their opposition to the
state's trap-reduction plan.
A spiny lobster advisory board
previously urged halting the
reduction at its current level,
about 490,000 traps;
FWC biologists and fishery
managers disagreed, wanting to
slowly resume cutting trap num-
bers until a target of 400,000
traps was reached.
That figured to be the central
question facing -the six FWC
board -members Thursday, but

County Commercial Fishermen, speaks with FWC
Commissioner Dwight Stephenson during Thursday's FWC
meeting in Key Largo. Stephenson is a former Miami Dolphin
offensive lineman and is in the NFL Hall of Fame. Irwin played
quarterback for Marathon High School.


staff instead decided this week to
move the reduction question back
to December 2008.
Fishermen and staff members
said new federal fishing regula-
tions under review could have a
profound effect on any state lob-
ster-gear rule adopted now.
There also were concerns that
three new FWC board members
facing their first vote on lobster
issues would be overwhelmed by
the long and complex history of
the trap-reduction plan, launched
more than 15 years ago.
Ultimately, the board gave


tentative approval to three lob-
ster-rule changes:
Allowing a lobster boat to
pull traps for two permits instead
of one, a move intended to allow
boat mates to start their own fish-
ing business.
Reclaiming for the state any
lobster-trap certificates allocated
to a commercial trap fisherman
but not purchased after two years
instead of the current three years
of inactivity.
Banning the taking of any
egg-bearing lobster, regardless of
species.
The lobster-advisory board
endorsed a proposal to let fisher-
men put their traps in the water
the day after mini-season ends for
a longer soak period before the
first pull on Aug. 6.
The FWC instead supported a
staff recommendation to keep the
Aug. 1 date for placing traps,
Even with the trap-reduction
moratorium in hand, commercial
fishermen still wanted to let the
FWC know their feelings.
"When you reduce the number
of traps, you reduce the industry,
there's no getting away from it,"
Key West fishhouse owner Peter
Bacle said. "At a certain point,
the viability of the whole.industry
us probably finished."
Jerry Sansom, president of the
state Organized Fishermen of
Florida, said the fundamental
promise of the trap-reduction
plan was that fewer traps would
catch the same annual average
harvest of-about 5 million lobster.
"That has not happened,"
Sansom said.

Recreational lobster divers feel targeted


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Recreational divers get the
short end of the tickle stick when
it comes to lobster laws and har-
vest, contend members of a group
from Broward County.
"If we get caught with a short
lobster, they can take our gear
and our boat," dive-shop owner
Skip Commagere said. "They let
[trappers] use short lobster as
bait. That's unbelievable."
A chartered bus carried about
two dozen divers to Thursday's
meeting of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion in Key Largo.
"Save Baby Lobsters," read
the graphic on a T-shirt worn by
several divers.
Three recreational divers
served on the state Spiny Lobster
Advisory Board that spearheaded
a two-and-a-half-year review of


state rules for the popular crus-
tacean.
"We don't know who those
gentlemen were," said Bob
Harris, representing a scuba
industry group.
Harris said the advisory board
appeared to overlook major
issues in the lobster fishery "and
turned their attention to recre-
ational divers."
Members of the advisory
board said its recreational repre-
sentatives did an excellent job
promoting the sport's concerns
during the open review process.
Divers speaking Thursday
called for the.FWC to reduce the
number of lobster traps to limit
damage to the bottom, and to
reduce the mortality of under-
sized lobster used in traps to
attract other lobster.
"Shorts don't swim out of the
traps," diver Pete Murray said.


"Those traps are pretty dam
effective."
"Anyone who doesn't think
lobster go in and out of traps
doesn't know what they're talk-
ing about," trapper William Niles
responded.
Divers said boaters face large
penalties for hitting coral but lob-
ster traps can get carried by water
into the reef without conse-
quences.
"It's not right to leave ghost
traps on the bottom," said
Brianna Romanov, 11, the
group's youngest speaker. "Ghost


traps go across the reef and
destroy everything there is to
see."
Fishermen said few trappers
place gear near coral, and go to
great lengths to recover lost traps.
Divers also said they feared a
proposed lobster allocation
process that seems to favor the
state's commercial fishermen -
about 675 trappers and 354 com-
mercial divers, based in July


2007 state figures over more
than 100,000 recreational divers.
"How are you going to figure
which groups to penalize?" asked
dive-shop owner Jeff Torode.
Gary Mace, owner of a
Tavemier dive shop, asked the
FWC to do more to promote
preservation of the lobster fishery
and environment. He volunteered
to assist in recovering traps lost
near the reef.

tion Florida uses for the lower
category of threatened, advocates
said. Federal guidelines for an
endangered -species look at
whether the animal is in danger
of extinction throughout all or a
large part of its range.
The process and definitions
Florida uses to classify imperiled
species were adopted in 1999 and
modified in 2005.
The commission Wednesday
did approve a conservation plan
for the animal, which would help
address keeping track of mana-
tees. Within three years, the plan
calls for statistically sound meth-
ods to estimate the manatee pop-
ulation and monitor trends.
Also part of the plan is devel-
oping ways to prevent future
manatee deaths due to habitat
loss. That includes the potential
loss of warm water habitats creat-
ed around power plants as well as
springs where manatees thrive.
The loss of those habitats is


the biggest threats to the species.
Another problem is boats, which
sometimes strike and kill them or
cut them with their propellers.
Gov. Charlie Crist said he was
pleased with Wednesday's out-
come.
"Their action will keep the
manatee on the endangered list
and make sure that we continue
to focus public attention on pre-
serving this unique and important
environmental treasure," Crist
said.
Before the scheduled vote,
more than two dozen speakers
spent two hours lobbying the
commission. Conservation
groups and advocates said reclas-
sifying the manatee would send
the wrong message: that the
species is not in jeopardy and that
the public does not need to be
careful around the animals.
Supporters of moving mana-
tee off the list said reclassifying
the animal was a recognition of
successes in conservation.


Manatees will remain on
Florida's endangered species list
for now.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission unani-
mously decided Wednesday in in
Key Largo to defer voting on
whether the manatee should be
removed from the endangered
species list until it can review the
animal species classification sys-
tem.
The commission did not spec-
ify when the review may be done
and when it might revisit the
manatee's classification.
"Delisting the manatee has
basically, invoked concerns over
the listing process," commission
Chairman Rodney Barreto said:
The commission Wednesday
discussed moving the manatee
off the endangered list and re-
classifying it in the lower catego-
ry of threatened.
SState experts had said the ani-
mal no longer meets the state's
definition of endangered, which
is "imminent" risk of extinction.
Classifying the animals as threat-
ened facing a "high" risk of
extinction is more appropriate,
the experts had said.
Advocates said Florida's defi-
nitions of endangered and threat-
ened species are flawed and can.be
misleading, however, because they
don't align with the definitions of
an important international group.
The advocates recommended the
definitions be revisited.
Specifically, The International
Union for Conservation of Nature
defines a species as endangered if
it has a very high risk of extinc-
tion in the wild, the same defini-


decades ago by scientist William
Gray, is expecting 13 named
storms that grow into seven hur-
ricanes, including three intense
hurricanes, with winds above
110 mph.
The long-term averages are
11 named storms, six hurricanes
and two intense hurricanes.
For the last three years, the
full-season forecasts issued by
the CSU team and by a separate
group of government forecasters
have been well off the mark.
Some experts view the fore-
casts with considerable caution
and they worry that the errors
could undermine the credibility
of the generally more accurate
forecasts of actual hurricanes
and tropical storms.
Nevertheless, some elements
of the media devote consider-
able attention to the full-season
forecasts;
On Friday, for instance, the
Associated Press published a
bulletin-like "NewsAlert" with
first word about the CSU fore-
cast, followed by a story labeled
as "Urgent."

Pay issues go to School Board again


Administrators'
supplemental
anger some
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbumie@keysreporter.com

The Monroe County School
Board will continue pressing for a
transparent compensation system
on Tuesday when it takes up
more than $1.4 million in supple-
mental pay.
This issue came up earlier this
year during budget discussions-
along with disparities in health
insurance costs paid by teachers
compared to administrators.
Some board members say sup-
plements paid to administrators
are excessive.
Of the district's 619 employ-
ees receiving supplements,
unionized workers. which
includes teachers and foodservice
staff earn an average $1,908
supplement.
Non-unionized employees,
which include administrators and
support personnel, are paid sup-
plements averaging $4,403.
School Board member John
Dick said the Keys district is
"right in line" with all other dis-
tricts in Florida on supplemental
pay for instructional personnel.
"But when you come to


administrative personnel, we're
way, out of whack;" Dick said.
"And when you come to support
personnel, we're also way out of
whack. We're far, far exceeding
any other district."
Dick and board Chairman
Steven Pribramsky said they
favor a potential increase in sup-
plements paid to coaches or lead-
ers of after-school activities, but
question certain administrative
supplements.
"I'm 100 percent supportive
of supplements that go to coaches
and after-school activity leaders,"
Pribramsky said. For other
employees, he added, "We have
to consider,-what is the purpose
of the supplement? Should we or
should we not.pay [a supplement]
to have somebody do this, or
should it be part of their job
description?"
The board will also review
details surrounding last month's
approval of Superintendent Randy
Acevedo's plan to phase out long-
standing differences in health
insurance costs paid by adminis-
trators and other employees.
The plan lets current adminis-
trators keep paying only annual
cost increases for their coverage
while requiring new administra-
tors to pay the same 21 percent
cost share that teachers and other


school district employees pay.
Since the Nov. 13 approval,
Acevedo's list of eligible admin-
istrators has grown from 41 to 61.
-Acevedo says the longer list
includes all administrators, not
just those who already had the
lower-cost coverage.
"I wanted to eliminate it com-
pletely, just stop it," Dick said of
the inequity. "I'm surely not
going to be in favor of adding
more to the list of 41."
Board member Debra Walker
said "absolutely not" when asked
if the compensation system
unfairly favors administrators.
"Some of our administrators took
pay cuts to become administra-
tors."
The superintendent's discre-
tionary spending practices will
also be discussed.
The district recently contract-
ed with Acevedo's 18-year-old
son, Wade Acevedo, for $6,000 to
produce three marketing videos


for the Adult Education
Department, which is headed by
the superintendent's wife and
Wade Acevedo's mother,
Monique Acevedo. She also earns
the highest supplemental pay in
the district, $22,046 annually.
"No laws were broken, no pol-


icy was violated." Acevedo said
of the decision to hire his son.
"There was no attempt to hide it
either. I sent that contract to the
board."
The board meets at 10 a.m.
Tuesday at the district's adminis-
tration building in Key West.

Permit issues come before council


Boot Key span

The Marathon City Council is
scheduled to meet in regular ses-
sion Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the
Marathon Government Center.
Agenda items include:
An ordinance dealing with
the deferral of housing alloca-
tion awards in the building-per-

"It provides for deferral of an
allocation for three consecutive
trimesters. After the third one,
you can't defer the allocation;
we recycle it back into our
pool," Planning Director
Clarence Feagin said. Three
trimesters make up one calendar

The company is seeks to lease
the building that formerly

Jones. That's who sentenced
him to six months in jail and
five years of probation after he
and a friend admitted killing
the endangered animal on Big
Pine Key last year.
Jones "can do something as
light as reinstating him to pro-
bation or sentence him up to
five years in prison," Assistant
State Attorney Val Winter
said.
He could also decide to not
withhold adjudication, which
would make Milo a convicted
felon.
Milo was enrolled in the
jail's work-release program,
which required him to work
during the days and return to


his Stock Island cell at night.
The county supplies bicycles
for the detainees to ride to
work and back to jail.
While working, inmates are
not under supervision of cor-
rections officers, Sheriff's
Office spokeswoman Becky
Herrin said. The mission of
the program is to teach
responsibility, though it does-
n't always work.
"Its actually a really good
program," Herrin said. "It
allows them to get a job easier
when they're out of jail. They
can get back on their feet and
begin to pay restitution."
It takes the due diligence of
the jail's Classification
Department to decide who is
admitted to the program.
Criteria include if they would
cause harm to themselves and
others, Herrin said. It's a vig-
orous process that assesses an
inmate's crimes and if he or
she has a violent history.
"We have to screen them
very carefully," she said.
But what inmates enrolled
in the program do out of their
cell is completely up to them.
"They're at the supervision
of the employer," she said.
"That's why we run the tests."

dition, .Mile was able to be

tion while detained, Cor-
rectional Probation Senior
Supervisor Todd Koson said.
According to Koson, work-
release violations aren't at all
common.
Many Keys employers par-
ticipate in the program. Milo
was employed by -Kings
Enterprise Construction when
he "stumbled" back to jail,
with bloodshot eyes, from
what was supposed to be
work, the violation report
states.
He blew a .130 blood alco-
hol level and his irine tested
positive for opiates, according
to the report.
Milo is quoted in the report
as saying, "I don't drink and I
don't do drugs," and reported-
ly told staff his boss had given
him an aspirin earlier in the
day.
In September, Jones sen-
tenced Milo, 21, and 19-year-
old Timothy Goll to the six
months in jail and five years
probation for brutally killing
the protected alligator at the
Blue Hole in 2006. The pair
admitted to a felony charge of
poaching.
Goll was released Oct. 23
for good behavior, but Milo
was detained for using drugs
and alcohol while working
under jail supervision, author-
ities say. Goll was a "model
.inmate" and is working hard to


put the experience behind him,
his attorney Jason Smith said.
Milo was involved with
Army ROTC and had plans to
serve in Iraq. His attorney,
Ken Padowitz, spent a good


portion of the sentencing hear-
ing on that topic.
Milo is scheduled to go
before Jones at 8:45 a.m.
Thursday to face the violation
charge.

Former firefighter faces prison


Local bigwigs
ask the judge
to be lenient
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


A Key West who's-who is
going to bat for a former Key
West firefighter who faces
possible prison time for violat-
ing probation on a federal
drug charge.
Joseph Grassi served close
to three years in prison for
possessing an eighth of an
ounce of cocaine in 2001.
Wednesday, he will face a
federal judge for violating his
probation.
His sentencing is at 9 a.m.
in Courtroom 1 of the federal
building at 301 Simonton St.
before U.S. District Judge
James Lawrence King.
A U.S. marshal served an


arrest warrant on Grassi in
August. Details of Grassi's
violation were not immediate-
ly available, according to
Jovanny Lopez, spokeswoman
for the U.S. Attorney's Office
in Miami.
Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson has written a letter
on Grassi's behalf, noting he's
known him all his life.
"Joseph is very involved in
his community 'by volunteer-
ing his time by coaching a
boys' football team with the
Key West Junior Football
League and a girl's softball'
team....," the mayor wrote.
"Joseph takes care of his
mother who recently had a
mild stroke," Monroe County
School District Superinten-
dent Randy Acevedo wrote.
Grassi served with the Key
West Fire Department for
more than 10 years before his


2003 conviction. He was con-
victed of possession with
intent to distribute, two counts
of making false statements to
a federal grand jury and four
counts of obstruction.
He faced as much as 20
years in prison but was sen-
tenced to 33 months followed
by three years supervised
release.
"Please take into considera-
tion when handing down his
sentence," former City
Commissioner Jose Menendez
wrote to King, "he has been a
very productive citizen since
his release from prison."
"The case was a tragedy,"
Grassi's former attorney, Curt
Obront, told the Miami Herald
after Grassi's arrest. "He was
a Key West High School most
valuable football player and a
fireman for over 10 years."
The case stems from
Grassi's videotaped interac-
tion with a "reliable confiden-


tial informant," according to
the original criminal com-
plaint.
-According to court records,
Grassi purchased a so-called
"eight-ball".- an eighth of an
ounce of cocaine from the
informant; then dropped the
cocaine on the ground when
officers arrested him.
Video and audiotapes in the
case recorded Grassi admit-
ting to the informant that he
lied to a grand jury in 2000.
Tapes also recorded Grassi
saying he had sold cocaine to
other members of the Key
West Fire Department.


OSHA gives Navy highest honor


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


After a week of evaluations
conducted by its representa-
tives, the U.S. Occupational
Safety and Health
Administration on Friday rec-
ommended Naval Air Station
Key West receive Star certifica-
tion the highest possible
.safety status the agency awards.
"This will impact the quality
of life for everyone on that air
station," OSHA Fort
Lauderdale Area Manager
Darlene Fossum said. "You're
telling the world that you're the
exemplary figure. You are the
air station of what others should
strive to become."


OSHA's Foit Lauderdale's
office had two of the seven rep-
resentatives interviewing staff
and inspecting base safety
habits this past week.
The recommendation has to
be written up and sent to
OSHA's regional base in
Atlanta, where it will be
reviewed and then sent to
Washington, D.C., for final
approval.
NAS Safety Manager Ron
Cooke said the base worked
hard to modify its safety rou-
tine, an effort that began when
the base signed up for the
OSHA's Voluntary ProteGtion
Program in April 2005.


SThe program stressed
improving hazard control, safe-
ty and health training.
"It's a milestone for some-
thing that the air station has
worked several years on," NAS
spokesman Jim Brooks said.
"But it's not a finish line by any
stretch of the imagination. Now
you want to make it even
stronger."
The honor was recommend-
ed about five years after NAS
Key West had the most mishaps
of any other installation serving
the Atlantic Fleet.
"This is an honor," Fossum
said. "I've gotten to knew cer-
tain people down there and I
know the passion and desire
they've shown from this."

Fees decision delayed again


$98,000 cost
to build remains
disputed issue
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County
Planning Commission on
Wednesday tabled a proposal
that could add $98,000 to the
cost of building a home on the
already highly restricted Big
Pine and No Name keys.
"We are under an agree-
ment with [the U.S. Fish &
Wildlife Service] to do miti-
gation," Chairman Randy
Wall said. "The question is
how .that mitigation .trickles
down to the individual proper-
ty owner."
In a proposal floated by
staff last month, mitigation
fees would run $98,000 for a
new home, an expense some
landowners who have already
waited years for the opportu-
nity to build say will break
their banks.
Big Pine resident James
Shea says he and his wife


bought three contiguous lots
several years ago with the
goal of building a home for
their daughter across the street
from theirs. If the mitigation
fees are approved, he says he
may not be able to do that.
"We have virtually no use
of our property," he told the
commission. "I don't under-
stand. If this is my property
and Fish & Wildlife owns the
[National Key Deer] Refuge
and my property is zoned and
platted for a single-family res-
idence, how am I impacting
the refuge?"
Both islands are governed
by a Habitat Conservation
Plan that limits growth to pro-
tect the habitat of endangered
Key deer. It allows for just
eight new market rate and two
new affordable rate homes
annually over the next 20
years. The plan is a joint effort
between the county, state
Department of Community
Affairs and Fish & Wildlife.
Planning Commissioner
Jim Cameron says it might be
time reopen the HCP and


update it so it better reflects
current needs.
"We're looking like we
have to renegotiate this HCP,"
he said. "We need to look at
the number of homes we're
being allowed to build. We
have over 370 lots" classified
as buildable.
Wall suggested taking a
closer look at the federal miti-
gation requirements within
the HCP. He says the county
has to make up only a portion
of the actual cost of mitigation
for new building.
"That could cut it to
$25,000," he said. "The reali-
ty of the law is that the way
it's written, we're only
required-to charge the appli-
cant 25 percent of the real
cost. That's a pretty huge dif-
ference."
The commission has asked
staffers to draw up a less-cost-
ly alternative for landowners
and present it at its Jan. 8
meeting in Marathon.
In the meantime, all build-
ing on Big Pine and No Name
was frozen for 60 days start-
ing Dec. 1 to allow time to
draft the mitigation ordinance.


Island drug deals add up


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


The Key West Police
Department seized an estimated
$175,000 in street-value drugs
from the streets of Key West
within the first six months of the
year, according to data compiled
by Detective Sgt. Bemardo
Barrios.
Between Jan. 1 and June 1,
852.1 grams of marijuana were
seized, along with 83.2 grams of
crack cocaine and 70.7 grams of
powder cocaine, Barrios wrote in
an e-mail.
Some of the data suggests a
decline of drugs on the street
compared to the entire year of
2006, when 205.43 grams of
crack were seized, along with
365.50 grams of powder cocaine
and 2,302.56 grams of marijuana
- almost double the amount
marijuana confiscated the previ-
ous year.
In 2005, 58.24 grams of crack
cocaine were confiscated, along
with 947.96 grams of marijuana.
For the first six months of this
year, the Police Department
"conducted 15 major operations
that have made a significant


impact in the illicit narcotic trade
in the city of Key West," Barrios
wrote.
It's also "dismantled three
indoor marijuana grow houses,
seizing 41 plants, and arresting
the occupants."
Street drug deals obviously
require much attention from the
Key West Special Operations
Narcotics units, with 310 arrests
in 2006 and 245 year-to-date in
2007, department spokeswoman
Christie Phillips said.
One arrest led to the Tuesday
sentencing of a dealer to a long
stretch in state prison.
Judge Wayne Miller sen-
tenced convicted dealer Darron
Hughes, 36, to 25 years, though
he could have gotten 90 years.
Hughes was sentenced for
three separate counts of selling
cocaine within 1,000 feet from a
place of worship. While they
were only street-level deals, they
added up quickly, Assistant
Monroe County State Attorney
Val Winter said.
"I don't think there is a
stronger message that can be
sent," Winter said. "Don't do it."

District, city talks get specific


Trumbo housing
now factoring
into discussions
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

With the possible closing of
Glynn Archer Elementary
School in Key West and a
Trumbo Point redevelopment
project in talks, discussions have
begun between the Monroe
County School Board and city of
Key West on mutual fronts:
Joining forces at Trumbo
Point to permit as many as 160
to 180 affordable homes.
Possibly moving the
School District's administrative
offices from Trumbo to a Stock
Island site the city owns and
plans for a bus depot.
Leasing Glynn Archer as
Key West's replacement city
hall.
The city wants a new city hall
and affordable housing, making
the prospect of surplus property
and empty buildings under dis-
cussion by the School Board
extra attractive, Mayor Morgan
McPherson said.
McPherson spoke with
School Board Chairman Steve
Pribramsky this week about
Trumbo Point, and their discus-
sion will be part of a School
Board workshop at 10 a.m.
Tuesday at the district's adminis-
tration building.
That Trumbo Point site could
provide enough space for a
potential 160 to 180 affordable
units, either for rent or resale,
McPherson and Pribramsky
said. The trick is finding where
those offices, and the 60 people
who work in them, could go.
That's where the city has
talked about possibly making
property available on College


Road, next to the 140-foot land-
fill called Mount Trashmore. An
$8 million bus depot is planned
for the site, but there would be
acreage for school administra-
tive offices, McPherson said.
The Ruth Hargrove building
on Tropical Street, already
owned by the School District, is
another possibility for office
space, Pribramsky said.
.The city could deed its one
acre on the Trumbo -property to
the district, which would add a
little to the district's existing
four acres.
McPherson labeled that proj-
ect the "big idea."
Key West businessman Ed
Swift is the appointed land-use
consultant for the School
District and was awarded the
development contract on the
Trumbo Point project.
While close to 200 new
affordable units sound like a
dream to city officials, the ques-
tion of obtaining the necessary
building-permit allocations from
the state could be a challenge.
Permits are allocated to the
county according to hurricane
evacuation guidelines.
SBut McPherson said he's had
positive discussions with
Department of Community
Affairs Secretary Tom Pelham,
and thinks obtaining those per-
mits is possible, especially con-
sidering the city hasn't asked for
any since 1992, McPherson said.
At a special meeting Tuesday,
a Key West Facilities Committee
formed by the School Board rec-
ommended Glynn Archer close'
due to budget constraints.
Those students, the commit-
tee said, could transfer to a reno-
vated Sigsbee Elementary
School, which is on the U.S.
Navy base in Key West.
The committee, comprising


educators, parents and commu-
nity members, also suggested
Sigsbee become a school for stu-
dents in kindergarten through
grade eight and Horace
O'Bryant remain a middle
school, but transferring about
300 HOB students to the
expanded Sigsbee campus.
Parents concerned about
Sigsbee's tight security the
base closed the day after Sept.
11, 2001, terrorist attacks -
shouldn't be because it only
means their children will be safe,
Naval Air Station Key West
spokesman Jim Brooks said.
Many city officials say the
Glynn Archer property on White
Street would make a perfect new
city hall to replace the old moldy
one on Angela Street.
"I think it's a great location
because of its density and its
parking," McPherson said. "I
also think it would create a great
opportunity with the auditorium
right there."

something parents need," she said,
adding that the convenience of the
product appeals to families on the
go.
"Young families are looking
for more multi-use items so that
their dollar goes further and they
don't have to haul so much stuff
around," she said. "We have a lot
of built-in safety features and
durability, so it's good for pro-
longed use."
"The research that we've done
shows that babies really seem to
prefer it to the basic, rectangular,
hard surfaces of most play yards,"
she added.
She says she hopes to be able
to use her product to help those in
need.
"We're a very small company
and we'd like to pay it forward
and donate to emergency rescue
groups to help families and day


cares get back on their feet."
Bleser said she did some
research and had prototypes for
inflatable play yards developed
shortly after the trip, but the

of life's situations."
Fast-forward about two
decades and her newest prototype,
the Room to Grow 4-in-1 Play
Yard, is on the market and starting


to sell.
"We're just starting out,"
Bleser said. "We've got a few dif-
ferent stores scattered around the
Keys."
And business is not the only
thing that's grown. Tana Bleser, the
infant daughter who inspired the
product, is now a graduate student
at the University of Florida and
vice president of Growing Room.
In April, the mother-daughter
team took Room to Grow to the
2007 International Juvenile

Bleser says it was selected as one
of the most innovative new prod-

Room to Grow is available at

ReMARCable chefs cooking


for a cause in Marathon


After 14 years, culinary
competition moves up the Keys


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


If enjoying fine wine and
sampling the finest delicacies
the Middle Keys have to offer
sounds like a good time to you,
be sure to head to Tranquility
Bay Resort Jan. 7 for the Master
Chef Classic culinary competi-
tion.
The Monroe Association for
Retarded Citizens will host the
event, which has been luring the
finest chefs in the Lower Keys
for 14 years with its Key West
edition. This is the first time it's
being held in Marathon.
All proceeds will benefit
MARC, which provides services
for people 18 and over living


with mental disabilities.
,"We provide medical services
and job opportunities; anything
to make sure their lives are the
same as everyone else," event
organizer Gordon Ross said of
MARC, which is entering its
41st year in existence. It is head-
quartered in Key West and has
satellite offices in Tavemier.
Charlotte Miller, executive
chef at Tranquility's Butterfly
Cafe, entered the competition
last year and planted the idea for
a Middle Keys competition in
Ross' mind. It will take place on
the beach at the rear of the resort
property.
"I was going through
Marathon and I thought, 'They
have a ton of restaurants here,
let's bring it up here,"' he said.


The Key West High School Pro Start program has entered the
event on two occasions. It even won Best Dessert in a
category filled with experienced local chefs, event
organizer Gordon Ross says.

one or all three categories: appe-
tizer, entree and dessert. The
only stipulation, Ross says, is for
the chefs to prepare 275 to 300
"good-sized tastes" of their
entries. Ticket sales are normal-
ly limited to that amount.
"The biggest complaint I've
gotten working on this for five
years is there's too much food to
eat," Ross joked.
A panel of judges as well as
partygoers will evaluate the
chefs and winners will receive
trophies and prizes, as well as a
year's worth of bragging rights.
Among the winning entries
last year: an appetizer of crab-
stuffed bacon-wrapped shrimp
with a mojito glaze and pineap-
ple sauce by the Conch Republic
Seafood Co., an entree of
Florida lobster ravioli with
Swiss chard, wild mushrooms
and sherry cream sauce by the
Roof Top Cafe and sweet potato
ginger donuts by the Butterfly
Cafe.
Tickets to the Master Chef
Classic are $45 in advance and
an additional $15 will buy you
all the wine you would like.
Tranquility's bar will also be
open for business, Ross said.


If you are a chef looking to
enter the competition or would
like more information about the
event, contact Ross at 294-9526,
or by e-mail at gordon

Why Shop Local?
Re-circulate local money:
More money is kept in the
community because locally
owned businesses purchase
from other local businesses,
service providers and distrib-
utors. Purchasing local helps
grow other businesses.
Most new jobs are provided
by local businesses: Small
local businesses are the
largest employer nationally.
Our one of a kind businesses
are an integral part of our
distinctive character: The
unique character of the
Florida Keys is what brought
us here and will keep us here.
Our tourism businesses also
benefit. When people go on
vacation they generally seek
out destinations that offer
them the sense of being
someplace, not just anyplace.
Local business owners
invest in community: Local
businesses owned by people
who live in this community,
are less likely to leave, and are
more invested in the commu-
nity's future.
Non-profits receive greater
support: Non-profit organiza-
tions receive an average 350%
greater support from local
business owners than they do
from non-locally owned busi-
nesses.

Little White House goes retro


1940s Christmas
display opens to
the public Monday
F or the first time since its
opening in 1991, the pub-
lic rooms of the Harry S
Truman Little White House in
Key West will be decorated in
the style of a 1940s Christmas.
Under the tutelage of Peter
Bek-gran and Kenneth Dooley,
the rooms have been bedecked
and stunningly made ready for
seasonal visitors.
The idea emerged when Bek-


gran and Dooley hosted Jacob
Snavely, an emerging New York
artist, during his South Florida
debut art show. A tour of the
Little White House stimulated
the designer's interest and with
the support of Paul Hilson, the
Little White House special-
events coordinator, a meeting-
with Robert Wolz, executive
director, was arranged. He wel-
comed the idea and quickly
approved the project.
There's a 7.5-foot tree in the
living room with authentic
1940s ornaments and tinsel


from that time. The foyers and of the 1940s Spirit of Christmas

on poet Bishop

The Studios of Key West, in.
partnership with the Florida

evening devoted to celebrated
poet Elizabeth Bishop and her
time in Key West at 7 p.m.

The free public lecture by
scholar Brett Millier will be fol-
lowed by a moderated conversa-

South." These will be accompa-
nied by a recording of the poems
for voice and piano set by
American composer John

It." Her forthcoming book is

Christmas carols while Gary

instruments. The kids were
family and friends of our driv-

Directly in front of us was a

Artist Fran Decker and her
husband Bob were in the last

'Hoochie Koochie Man'


finds a Friday home


Preston starts
regular gig
at the Overseas
He's one of the most popu-
lar blues singers in these
islands, and now David
Preston, a.k.a. the Hoochie
Koochie Man, has launched a
new show at the Overseas
Lounge in Marathon, every
Friday at 8:30 p.m.
Preston's fans are familiar
with his weekly performances at
the Marathon Holiday Inn tiki
bar with Michael Jay and at
Dockside's long-running Sunday
jams with the Florida Straits
Band.
Originally from Cincinnati,
Preston grew up in Bowling
Green, Ky., surrounded by


music.
"I've been doing music as
long as I can remember," he
says. "I remember clanging pan
lids and aping Elvis when I was
5. Then I played drums for high-
school marching bands and local
kid bands, and eventually won a
college scholarship in music. I
continued as a drummer in the
U.S. Navy and began singing
backups off and on."
Preston says his musical style
has been influenced by a broad
range of performers, including
Eric Clapton, Ray Charles, Billy
Joel, Stevie Ray Vaughn and
Lyle Lovett.
The trumpet is a recent addi-
tion to his repertoire.
"I first picked up the trumpet
only a couple of years ago," he

Share the Wreath
Wednesday night

When the late Ronda
Riviera was crowned Miss
Firecracker in Key West in
2001, she began planning her
fundraising events for the year
and embraced the concept of
Share the Wreath, an auction of
decorated wreaths created by a
myriad of local celebrities.
The event became an AIDS
Help benefit and was an instant
success, raising more than
$6,600 that first year to help
support the agency's work
throughout the Keys. Last year
it raised $9,135.
Queen Mother XXIV Ruby
and La Te Da intend to carry
on the tradition Wednesday,
when the Crystal Room at La
Te Da will open its doors for
the seventh annual Share the
Wreath event. Mark Barauck
of La Te Da has donated 25
wreaths in two sizes, 12 and 24
inches, to be auctioned.
"Everyone starts with the
same bare wreath and then as
you can imagine, especially in
Key West, the decorators go
wild," Ruby says. "The only
nile is that each wreath must


have lights."
The doors open at 6:30 p.m.
with the show starting prompt-
ly at 7:30. Suggested donation
is $5. Call Pam at AIDS Help
at 296-6196 with any ques-
tions.

'Picture Show' gets
new life this year

The Studios of Key West,
600 White St., inspired by B. J.
Martin's classic look at Key
West in the late 1970s, has a
new project for local filmmak-
ers.
"The Return of the Key
West Picture Show" will
encourage the making of new
short film documentaries as
deliberate attempts to capture
the cultural aspects of the pres-
ent-day island community.
Local artists working in film or
video are invited to a meeting
at the Studios on Tuesday.
Details are available by calling
296-0458.
The premiere of these
home-grown documentaries as
"The Return of the Key West
Picture Show will be screened
in early March at The Studios
of Key West.

Tuesday, easily polishing off
District 16-3A foe Carrollton,
8-0.
"Offensively, we can do a lot
against quite a few teams," head

we need to be able to do it under

He pointed to Friday's home
match against Archbishop
Carroll as "a good test" of how
far the Lady Canes have pro-
gressed. Results were not avail-
able at press time.
"We need to pick up the speed
of our play," Arsenault said.

scoring for Coral Shores against
Marathon (3-4-2), taking a feed
down the middle from sweeper
Chris Rini.
Marathon rallied to tie the
match at 1-1 before the game-
winning shot.
"It was a non-district match
against Marathon so we tried a
variety of different things,"
Bosque said. "We have found
some things that worked well so
we're keeping them."
Dylan Valdes earned a pro-
motion to varsity with his play
against the Dolphins, as Coral
Shores filled in for injured reg-
ulars like Mike Hampson.
One day earlier, Coral
Shores was on the wrong end of
a 2-1 loss to LaSalle in a non-
district match.
LaSalle scored twice in the
second half, including the
game-winner with about a
minute left.
After a foul was called on
Coral Shores, the visiting Royal
Lions quickly put the ball in
play and were able. to send a
pass-through toward the Cane
net.

. Coral Shores held a 1-0 lead
at halftime on Mike
Loguercio's goal.
"It was just kind of banging
around in front of the LaSalle
net," Bosque said. "Their keep-
er couldn't get his hands on the
ball and Mike put it in."
But the Canes found them-


selves playing too much of the
match with their backs to the
net, he said.
"Defensively we've gotten
better but LaSalle played a lot
of the game in our half of the
field;" Bosque said. "We need
more scoring opportunities and
we need to finish better."

Four sailfish
wins the Cup,
trip to Mexico
When the fishing was done
in the fifth annual Islamorada
Fishing Club's Captain's Cup
Sailfish Tournament, the main
attraction was the Main
Attraction team.
Capt. Marty Lewis, with his
first-time tournament mate
Brendon Huwar, led anglers
Jamie Platt and Ariel Medero
of Marathon to their fourth
release at 3:56 p.m. Thursday
to win the $25,000.00 purse.
The Captain's Cup Sailfish
Tournament is also a qualify-
ing event for the IGFA
Offshore Championship
Series, so this team is headed
for Cabo San Lucas next year.
Crew on the Reel McCoy
reeled in and released the first
fish of the tournament at 9:02
a.m. As the day progressed,
the Main Attraction had taken
the lead with three releases by
1 p.m.
Both the Reel McCoy and
Kalex were close on his heels
with two releases.
The Kalex crew did its best
to catch up but in the end it
would land in second place
with three fish. Angler
Anthony DelDuca from
Naples released, one Jamie


Allen released two.
Third place went to the
Reel McCoy with anglers John
Timura and Robert Collins.
This team from Islamorada
released three fish.
Capt. George McElveen
with mates Ryan Rae and
Steven Pietrykowski tried to


find their third fish before the
Kalex released three but it
wasn't meant to be.
John Timura released the
final fish of the day at 4:13,

ICS comes back


from early deficit I


Ladies rebuff
rival Princeton
Petraska shines
Keynoter Staff

After a very shaky start
Thursday, Island Christian's soc-
cer Lady Eagles got their swagger
back.
The Eagles rallied from a 3-0
deficit to beat longtime rival
Princeton Christian, 4-3, on the
road.
A switch in goalkeeper to
Mary Ellen Petraska started the
turnaround after the Panthers
scored three goals in the first 10
minutes.
"Mary Ellen made an immedi-
ate impact, stopping two scoring
opportunities," coach Robert
Lucas said. "Her play lifted us
from the doldrums."
Kate Dupre got the Eagles on
the board in the 25th minute, lift-
ing a shot over the Princeton
keeper.
Melanie Meroni one-timed, a
comer kick from Jennifer Subic in
the 30th minute.
Abbey Lindholm tied the
match one minute before half-
time, scoring off a Subic comer
kick.
The Eagles had the momen-
tum, Lucas said. "The girls had a
swagger in their step at the half."
Subic scored on a "perfectly
placed" shot off the comer, Lucas
said.


Up to a challenge
on your bicycle?

- The Mariners Hospital Relay
for Life team is biking for a cause
with its Benefit Bike Challenge
and Party Feb. 17.
The challenge, which raises
money for the American Cancer
Society, starts at 8 a.m. and offers
three routes.
The Indian Key Fill 3-rnile
route is designed for families with
young children. The 13-mile
Anne's Beach route is for interme-
diate-level bikers. The Channel 5
Challenge is an arduous 18-mile


Island Christian nearly had to
settle for a tie after Princeton was
awarded a handball call against
the Eagles with only minutes to
go.
"Mary Ellen had never defend-
ed one but trusted my direction
and guessed right," Lucas said. "It
never had a chance."
Petraska "was fantastic,"
Lucas said. "She gave us confi-
dence when we desperately need-
ed it."
Midfielders Cailin Reckwerdt,
Lindholm and Subic helped con-
trol the game, Lucas said, and the
defense recovered after the early
miscues.
Island Christian ran into trou-
ble in the week, losing 8-0 to a
potent Palmer Trinity (8-2).
The Lady Eagles are scheduled
to play Plantation Key School at 4
p.m. Monday at Founders Park.
Boys hoops
Island Christian's boys basket-
ball Eagles struggled on the road
Monday, falling 85-46 to
Barrington Academy of
Homestead.
Nathan Oyerfield led the
Eagles (1-1) in scoring with 17
points.
Aaron Izguirre added 13
points. Phillip Izaguirre and Tim
Globus each scored seven
points.
In a rescheduled game, Island
Christian faces Colonial Christian
at 7 p.m. Monday at the Coral


route for devoted bicyclists.
The minimum pledge for each
rider is $30 for adults and $15 for
children younger than 12.
Individuals or teams are invited to
participate.
Following the bike rides, there
will be an old-fashioned Keys
party at Islamorada Founders
Park beginning at 11 a.m. In addi-
tion to food, beverages and
games, the party will feature live
music and vendors selling their
wares, everything from jewelry to

Charles leads soccer Conchs


Conchs have
an easy time
with Mater
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


Ending an eight-game losing
streak, the Key West High School
boys soccer team defeated Mater
Academy, 5-1, Tuesday in Miami
for its first victory of the season.
Wherden Charles, a sopho-
more from Haiti, scored three
goals for the Conchs, while soph-
omore Phillip Young scored a goal
and assisted on one by senior
Marlon Briones. The five goals
were the most the Conchs had
scored in a game this season.
"The kids were excited," coach
Jason Clifford said. "You could
see they were hoping for this, but
were finally able to put the effort
and energy needed to beat the
other team, not just play with
them."
Clifford, who had been experi-
menting with lineup changes in a


search for better team chemistry,
had Charles and Young both play-
ing in the front line. "That combi-

nation may be something to look
at for a while," he said.
The Conchs, for a change, got


off to an early lead against Mater
on Charles' first goal.
"With a young team, the first
goal is very important," Clifford
said. "It caught Mater off guard."
Trevoi Gordon and Zach
SHarden led Key West on defense,
as did keeper Sergio Tellez
Fuentes, who stopped a penalty
kick.
Phillip Young's goal under-
scored the improvement the foot-
ball quarterback has made in a
sport he is playing for the first
time.
"He's doing an excellent job
taking his athleticism and the
vision he used at quarterback to
time runs and see the game," said
Clifford, who originally asked
Young to join the team as a keep-
er. "As a locker-room guy, he
blended in right away and is
already joking with the rest of the
team."
Key West, which played
Friday at Belen Jesuit in a game
completed after press time, will
face Ransom Everglades at 1 p.m.
today at Tommy Roberts
Memorial Stadium.


Hurricanes JV squad stops

Dolphins' winning streak


Opportunities
are squandered,
team's now 6-3
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

All good things must come to
an end, and such was the case for
the Marathon High School girls
soccer tean Thursday, which lost
for the first time since Nov. 5 tb
the Coral Shores High School
junior varsity. 7-0.
"Our bubble just burst, we
were flat and ran into a really
good team," Dolphins coach
Dennis Doll said.
The girls had rattled off six
straight wins after beginning the
year 0-2, and were in the midst of
a welcome resurgence. The team
had only one victory last season.
Doll said the Dolphins looked
confused defensively against
what he called a very skilled
Hurricanes team. He said some-
times the team is too one-dimen-
sional.


"They'd run about three or
four players down the middle
and our players were just won-
dering which ones to take," Doll
said. "Hopefully we'll bounce
back and we learned a good les-
son from a good team. We were


'Our bubble
just burst, we
were flat and
ran into a
really good
team.'
- Marathon coach
Dennis Doll


basically looking and they were
running."
Doll said his midfielders often
failed to get on defense enough,
which left the Dolphins vulnera-
ble. He said he feels his young


team better than half are sev-
enth- and eighth-graders will
only get better with time.
Doll said the Canes got on the
board within the first minute of
the game and continued to pour it
on in the first half. They led 5-0
at the break, he said.
"In the second half, we started
playing our game, but it was too
late," he said.
The Dolphins failed to con-
vert on a series of goal-scoring
opportunities, Doll said. They
missed an open net off a crossing
ball and twice hit the goalpost
with shots, he said.
Doll said while it would not
have changed the outcome of the
game, it would have been nice to
net the goals because "it would
have made a difference confi-
dence-wise."
The Dolphins were scheduled
to visit district and Keys rival
Island Christian School Friday.
Results were not available at
press time.
They host Palmer Trinity
School Monday at the Marathon
Community Park at 4 p.m.

Canes rally falls short


Team runs out
of gas, time
in 61-49 loss
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


For about half the third
quarter Tuesday, Coral Shores
--boys' basketball Hurricanes
played as well as they have all
season.
The Canes limped into half-
time down 36-22 to visiting
Westminster Christian after a
listless first half.
A different club surged out
of the break, making shots and
making steals on a 13-point
run that brought the Canes to
within one point at 36-35.
It- was impressive, but
Westminster's Warriors (3-2)
absorbed the blow and got
back to business, winning 61-
49.
"Westminster totally out-
worked us in the first half,"
coach Andy Thiery said.


"I guess the guys decided
they needed to get to work,"
Thiery said of the third-quar-
ter run. "It also helped that
balls were going down."
Misses on open shots have
plagued the Hurricanes (2-4)
all season.
Senior Chris Noble scored
24 points for Coral Shores,
including 10 in the third quar-
ter. Noble hit two 3-pointers in
the second.
After Westminster started
pulling away late in the third
quarter, Noble scored on a
putback and hit a free-throw to
draw within 51-42 going into
the last period.
A bucket by Anthony
Whitehead and a 3-pointer by
senior guard Max Jones com-
bined with a Noble layup for a
seven-point Hurricane run, but
the offense ended there. The
second-half roster shortened
by fouls and injuries, the
Canes did not score again.
"We were running out of gas,"
Thiery said.


Noble : was the only
Hurricane in double figures.
Randell Jackman scored eight
points, and Stephen Fowler
scored seven.

Ransom wins
Thursday, Coral Shores
limited just one Ransom
Everglades player to double
figures, but point guard
Christian Molinet scored 36
points in Ransom's 57-43 win.
The Canes were trailing,
28-20, at halftime but were
still in the game.
Ransom kept their lead and
improved to 4-0 on the season.
Noble scored a team-high
15 points. Junior forward
Norman Dixon scored 10, and
perimeter shooter Sammy
Leon scored eight.
The Canes now play on the
road for two weeks until a
Dec. 20 home game against
Key West High School.
Coral Shores visits
Archbishop Carroll on
Thursday, and travels south to
Marathon High School on
Dec. 18.

Key West basketball falls to great height


Overmatched
Conchs beaten
by 'a beast'
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

The Key West High School
boys basketball team went back in
time Tuesday night, playing in a
dark church gym with old-style
non-collapsible rims and a hand-
ful of spectators.
But it wasn't the gym that was
responsible for the 98-38 beating



5 games

FINS / From 40

schedule.
Freeman said he anticipates
the district being very good this
year, as another team, Westwood
Christian School, is undefeated so
far this year. Most teams have
played several more games than
the Dolphins (1-1) so far this sea-
son.
"Some teams are already like
six games in, it's just the way the
schedule happened," Freeman
said. Scheduled games against
Coral Shores and Boca Raton
over the Thanksgiving holiday
were cancelled.
The Dolphins will have to get
back in the flow quickly, Freeman
said, as the team will play five
games in the next 14 days. Three
of those games will be against
district opponents.
"Palmer is always tough, they
like to run the ball up the court a
lot and they full-court press. They
beat us twice last year and we feel
like we're a better team this year
than last," Freeman said.
So far the Falcons are 0-4 this
season, but Freeman said it is
important to start off the district
schedule with a win.
The varsity girls team will
face Palmer as well today, at 1:30
p.m. The junior varsity game has
been cancelled.
The girls lost Wednesday to
Florida Christian School, 69-4.
They fell to 0-4.
Latrice Jackson scored the
Dolphins lone basket in the game,
a three-pointer.


the Conchs took from Westlake
Prep. It was a case of too much
height and too much talent.
"Four of their guys are going to
play Division 1 in college -- and
their starters were 6-10, 6-9, 6-8,
.6-4 and 6-1," said Key West coach
Paul Davis, whose tallest player is
barely 6-foot-2.
The 6-9 Westlake player was
David Loubeau, whose 38 points


matched the output of the Key
West team.
"All of them. came in the
paint," Davis said. "He was a
beast."
With promising inside player
Zach Babich back home singing
with a choir, Key West had no
chance and was forced to shoot
from outside. "If we got around
their guards there was this red-
wood forest waiting," Davis said.
The Conchs played hard in the


first half, Davis said, adding, "We
actually tried to box out."
Westlake (1-1), which led at
halftime, 42-20, kept its starters in
the rest of the game as the Conchs,
Davis said, "started joking
around."
David Ruiz led the Conchs -
who fell to 0-4 with 16 points
and Michael Gallagher added 11.
When the Conchs arrived in
Davie, they learned that
Westlake's regular floor, which


had just been waxed, was bub-
bling up. It was decided to move
the game to a church gym in near-
by Opa-Locka.
The 60-point loss was not the
worst defeat Key West has suf-
fered in three seasons under
Davis. The Conchs lost to Patrick
Henry of Minneapolis, 96-33, last
December in Miami.
The Conchs play Punta Gorda
at 7:30 tonight at the Bobby
Menendez Gym.

*Ever thought about a career as a Caregiver? *
You have talents you may not be aware of.
Perhaps you are very good at balancing a check book,
you enjoy reading aloud or you are a movie buff who
can play a mean game of chess. You've been
described as a people person, have a warm smile that
comes easily and enjoy hearing someone reminisce
about a time before video games, fax machines and
internet chat rooms. You've been looking for some-
thing; a hobby maybe, or a part-time job that will give
you something to do before the kids get home from
school or to fill in that void left by retirement when
the weather's not quite right for fishing. We've been
looking for you!
Wonderful opportunities available in VNA's private
duty department Keys-wide! You don't need a special
license to be a good listener or to share your talents
and life experiences with someone else. The ability to
care for others and the desire to make a difference is
all that is needed to become a successful caregiver. We
offer flexible schedules, including days, evenings,
overnights and weekend hours. With so many options,
you are guaranteed to find a great working relationship
with Life. At Home.. You will become part of a pro-
fessional team that is dependable, reliable and truly do
make a difference. And being a Caregiver is more than
a paycheck. Your role as a Caregiver will be very
rewarding. We offer employment status so you don't
have to worry about the hassles of being an independ-
ent contractor. We also provide continuing education
and a great work environment.
Requirements:
* Valid drivers license, auto insurance & clean driving
record
Ability to pass strict background screening
Ability to communicate effectively
A genuine interest in the wellbeing of others
