Red tide possibly

A malad\ that seems to para-

birds in recent weekss say Ke\s

At the same time. biologists


found small amounts of the

of Key West.
No positive link between the
presence of red tide and the bird

experts ask residents and visi-

birds or signs of an algae bloom.

No vote is taken;
Di Gennaro named
the new chairman
By SAM NISSEN

Change came too rapidly for
Monroe County tourism, and
local leaders on Tuesday urged
hitting the brakes.
The Tourist Development
Council kept Harold Wheeler as
director, but got a tongue lashing
for even considering his termi-
nation when it met in regular
session at the DoubleTree Grand
Key Resort in Key West.
A parade of officials repre-
senting Keyswide business
groups expressed unwavering
support for Wheeler.


Members of the TDC's dis-
trict advisory councils, as well
as chambers of commerce and
tourism-related business groups,
read letters of support and
voiced praise for Wheeler's 12
years in his position. Nearly 150
people were in the standing-
room-only audience for the
three-hour meeting.
Cheers and applause punctu-
ated the session.
Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson spoke little. He
unsuccessfully attempted to get
Wheeler's firing on the agenda.
But that didn't happen.
"We are steadfast in our posi-
tion that the TDC should consid-
er our full support of Harold

Spectators at Saturday's Boot

ed display from one of the
participating vessels, Neptune's

A 24-year-old woman aboard
the 55-foot cruiser used its mast
to perform what onlooker Tami
Wile said was basically "a pole
dance" as it slowed to be judged
by a panel at the Dockside
Lounge on Sombrero Boulevard.
Wile was upset because several
children were on hand watching
the annual holiday event.

TDC membership policy


Appointees must
have business
in their district
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

New rules for the Monroe
County Tourist Development
Council should straighten out a
lot of the confusion that has bog-
gled the County Commission in
recent months, according to
newly elected TDC Chairman
Mario Di Gennaro.
"This isn't like something's
been drastically changed," he
said after Tuesday's TDC meet-
ing in Key West. "We're chang-
ing the policy because of the con-
fusion. We need less confusion
and more work getting done."
The board, during a standing-
room-only meeting at the
DoubleTree Grand Key Resort,
approved a policy change that
says board appointees must own
a business in the region they rep-
resent.
The TDC has been a hotbed of
controversy since July when
board member Matt Babich was
removed from his Key West seat
because he represented a district
in which he did not live. Policy,
in effect since 1988, spelled out
that appointees should live in the
district they serve.
Babich had represented
District 1 for seven years and
lived in that district most of that


time. However, he moved into
District 2 at least a year ago. In
July, County Commissioner
Dixie Spehar appointed Freddy
Varela to take Babich's seat.
Fast on the heels of the Babich
controversy, Di Gennaro made an
appointment that some said left
Islamorada businesses disenfran-
chised. Jim Rhyne, who was
tagged to replace the resigning
Scott Simmons, .lives in
Islamorada but owns a Marathon


The new

policy must

Commission.


motel.
TDC Marketing Director
Harold Wheeler complained to
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton, saying that Islamorada
lodging businesses were left
without representation.
"I feel it should be business or
work place that should determine
the position," TDC Director
Harold Wheeler said in a letter to
County Attorney Suzanne


Hutton. Rhyne's "business is in
District 3, and bed-tax dollars
collected and used to promote his
business come from District 3.
District 4 Islamorada now
has no one to represent one.of
their lodging businesses on the
TDC."
The new policy reads, "each
of the six members ... must have
their primary place of business in
that tax collection district."
Tuesday, the board voted 6-1
to approve the new policy. Rhyne
was the sole dissenting vote. His
term ends'in February.
The new policy also addressed
absenteeism.
Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson, who sits on the
board, was automatically ousted
in September when four meeting
absences put him in violations of
the existing policy. McPherson
said three of his four absences
were related to his work as city
mayor and the board reinstated
him.
The new policy calls for the
automatic removal of a board
member after three missed meet-
ings. However, it allows excused
absences for members of the
board who hold elected office as
long-as the absences are directly
related to their role as an elected
official.
The new policy must still be
approved by the County
Commission. It's on the agenda
for the Dec. 19 meeting, which
begins at 9 a.m. at the Marathon
Government Center.


'Angel' didn't mean to offend


PARADE / From 1

"This woman is all bent over,
totally naked and doing a dance
you see in Key West. It was like
Fantasy Fest come to
Marathon," Wile, a teacher at
Stanley Switlik Elementary
School, said. "It was one of the
most vulgar things I've ever
seen."
Wile said when she com-
plained to the judges at
Dockside about the display, one
told her, "If you don't like it, just
sit down and shut up. The kids
shouldn't be here, anyway."
Skeeter Cull owns Neptune's
Love Palace. He says the
woman performing the dance
was wearing a white body stock-


ing the entire time.
"Her intent wasn't to do any-
thing vulgar; we didn't mean to
offend anyone. If there is some-
one I need to apologize to, I
will," Cull said. "We were just
trying to support the boat parade
and Marathon."
"I didn't even realize about
the children, but I didn't think
my clothes were like that or I
would have never done it.
Skeeter asked me to be his
Christmas angel and that's what
I did," the woman, who did not
reveal her name, said. "If any-
body got upset, we apologize.
We were just trying to have fun."
Marathon resident Glen
Martin said he plans to pursue
charges against the woman.
"What she did was a felony.


This is the birth of Christ we're
celebrating here and you don't
do that when children are watch-
ing," Martin said. He contacted
City Manager Mike Puto about
the incident.
Puto told the Keynoter he
would investigate at his earliest
convenience.
"I will look into it to find out
exactly what happened and find
out what recourse, if any, we
have," Puto said. "We have to
make sure a thing like this does-
n't happen."
Despite reportedly receiving
the loudest cheers while being
judged, Cull said the boat did
not win the competition.
"We didn't win anything,
there was a lot better decorated
boat than ours," he said.

Wheeler's support almost universal


WHEELER / From I

Wheeler and continue his
employment," said Jodi
Weinhofer, president of the
Lodging Association of the
Florida Keys arid Key West.
She was joined by a dozen
others all voicing support for
Wheeler and challenging the
TDC on the way Wheeler's firing
was being pushed.
Though the Wheeler issue
dominated the fireworks Tuesday,
the TDC did change in significant
ways during the meeting.
County commissioner and
board member Mario Di Gennaro
was elected chairman, replacing
Key Largo dive operator Todd
Firm, who was- TDC chairman
this past year. It was Firm who
kept McPherson's canning of
Wheeler off Tuesday's agenda.
The TDC board also voted 6-1
to change the qualifications for
TDC board members, using
where their business is located,
not where they live, as the criteria
in making appointments (see
story, Page 2).
That will directly impact
Marathon hotel owner and TDC
board member Jim Rhyne, who
was elected vice chairman
Tuesday. In September, Di
Gennaro appointed him to the
TDC to represent District 4
(Islamorada), which is where
Rhyne lives.
Under the new criteria
approved Tuesday, Rhyne would
not qualify for that District 4 seat.
He was the lone no vote.
The policy change still needs
to be approved by the County
Commission.
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton told Firm she felt he
should put the Wheeler issue on
the agenda.
Firm did not appear pleased
about the week's events, which
saw terse back-and-forth e-mails
between he and Hutton, and a


very' public debate about
McPherson's motivations. Firm
could barely hold back yelling as
he asked the audience to voice its
opinion in support of Wheeler.
Many of those who spoke said
the direction of the TDC has
ground-level input and support,
and that drastic changes would
miss critical input from the com-
munity.
Bill Wickers, a former TDC
chairman, said the board is one of
the few bright spots of county
government, largely because the
TDC has long fought off interfer-
ing politics. When politics have
interfered, the board has suffered,
he said.
He said the County
Commission once declared
"there were too many tourists,"'
citing that as an example of polit-
ical interference. The audience
laughed after Wickers' story, then
cheered and clapped loudly after
each speaker.
Cries of political interference
came up this fall when Key West
business owner Matt Babich was
removed from the board because
he lives outside of Key West,
which he was elected to represent.
Wickers was one of about a
dozen who spoke against firing
Wheeler.
"The TDC and Mr. Wheeler
are not responsible for changing
demographics in Key West," said
Jackie Harder, president of the
Key Largo Chamber of
Commerce. Reading from her
chamber's letter of support for
Wheeler, she said they TDC has "
done an admirable job tourist
tax collections on short-term
accommodations are the highest
they've been in five years."
Weinhofer, the Lodging
Association's president, drew the
loudest applause when she told
the TDC that if it fired Wheeler,
that decision "will not represent
the individuals that fund this
board" (taxes collected by hotels
and'inns create the TDC funds,


not taxpayer revenues).
McPherson hasn't said specif-
ically why he has targeted
Wheeler, except to say the board
needs a new vision. But some
possible tensions about the TDC
marketing plan did come up

Village manager,
chief advocate
for assessment
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer *
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A special property assess-
ment for fire-rescue services in
Islamorada could be proposed.
At the 5:30 p.m. Thursday
meeting of the Islamorada
Village Council, municipal staff
will ask the board, to approve
negotiations with a consultant
who would draft an outline for a
fire-rescue assessment.
State mandates to cut proper-
ty taxes may harm Islamorada's
efforts to provide fire-rescue and
ambulance services, Fire Chief
William Wagner and Village
Manager Gary Word wrote.

They "are severely limited in
our ability to replace reduced
property tax dollars," Wagner
wrote in a letter to council mem-
bers. "Without adequate fund-
ing, the result will be station clo-
sures, longer emergency
response times, layoffs of fire-
fighter/paramedics, and fewer
emergency personnel to meet the
needs of the community."
Other Florida communities
have adopted annual fees rang-
ing from $31 to more than $200
per residential unit, according to
backup material submitted for
the meeting.
The fee would be levied per
-residential or commercial unit,
and would not be linked to prop-
erty valuation like ad valorem
taxes.
Islamorada has three fire sta-
tions and six full-time firefight-

er-medics, along with 15 certi-
fied volunteers. Local units
responded to 58 fires and 103
vehicle accidents in 2006,
Wagner reported, along with
more than 1,000 medical calls.
"Increasing response time
and reducing trained resources is
a recipe for a poor outcome in
any emergency situation," the
chief wrote.
Council members also will
look at sewer funding and may
schedule a special meeting in
January to focus on the issue.
The current status of
Islamorada's wastewater proj-
ects also will be presented to the
council.
Council member Chris Sante
has asked for time to discuss the
village's transferable-develop-
ment-right ordinance.
A draft business plan for the
Plantation Yacht Harbor Marina
at Founders Park will be submit-
ted, and Council member Cathi
Hill will update members on the
state of a working-waterfront
study.
Land-use issues, and a review
of the special-events policy for
Founder's Park, will are on the
Thursday agenda.
The meeting is in the
Islamorada Fire Station at mile
marker 81.8.

Paralysis

setting in

RED TIDE / From 1

Grinter of the Marathon Wild
Bird Center. "It's been around
for several years, at least since
2000. It crops up now and again,
and there doesn't seem to be any
rhyme nor reason."
The illness also may be linked
to botulism poisoning from an
unknown source, Grinter said.
Two blue herons and a night
Sheron died after being taken to
the Key West Wildlife Center,
director Susan Prince said. Their
bodies have been sent to a state
lab to see if a cause can be iden-
tified.
Another bird, a gallinule, was
brought in with the same symp-
toms but seems to be responding
to treatment, Prince said.
"I don't think we have an epi-
demic but it's something to
watch for," Prince said.
The paralysis is so complete
that stricken birds appear dead,
Grinter said. "A bird that looks
dead may not be," she said. "You
have to get up close to make sure."
Maya Totman, director of
Exotic and Wild Bird Rescue in
the Lower Keys, said she has
treated seven blue herons and
two great white herons with the
symptoms in recent weeks.
Two pelicans were particular-
ly affected, she said by telephone
from a Miami specialist's clinic,
where she took a pelican. One
pelican came from the Content
Keys, the other from Crawl Key.
"The birds seem to be
absolutely emaciated, just starv-
ing," Totman said. "They've just
taken blood samples so we don't
know what's causing it yet."
At the Turtle Hospital in
Marathon, rehabilitation coordi-
nator Ryan Butts said a para-
lyzed loggerhead turtle came
into the facility Dec. 2.
"It has a lot of the same symp-
toms as the [paralyzed] birds but
we can't say it's the same thing,"
Butts said. "The turtle was com-
pletely paralyzed. It couldn't
move its flippers at all. You
could touch its eyeball and it
wouldn't move."
The turtle remains ill but has
shown signs of improvement, he
said.
About six years ago, dozens
of turtles were brought in for
treatment for similar conditions,
he said. All but four died.

Keyis Opinion


Sing loudly, proudly

for the Sunshine State

Sometimes news slips past us even when we're on the look-
out.
That happened while surfing the state's Web site Tuesday and
discovering that Floridians are voting for a new state song.
It seems "Old Folks at Home" is no longer acceptable as
Florida's official state song.
The lyrics, just in case you don't recall, evoke a rather planta-
tion view and the place that African-Americans held in the South.
Florida hasn't fit that Deep South stereotype for many gener-
ations, although it's taken a lot longer than you'd think to try
and heal those old wounds.
So starting Monday and continuing until Jan. 10, the state is
seeking votes on which of three songs should become the
state's official tune.
You can hear the playoff contenders and vote online by going
to www.JustSingFlorida.org.
The three songs are:
"Florida, My Home," with music by Carl Ashley and lyrics
by Betsy Dixon, both of Boynton Beach.
"My Florida Home," with music and lyrics by Christopher
Marshall of Orlando.
"Florida (Where the Sawgrass Meets the Sky)," with
music and lyrics by Jan Hinton, of Pompano Beach.
Gee, seems like those tunesmiths in Broward and Palm
Beach counties have a run on the bank when it comes to win-
ning entries.
We're a bit disappointed, candidly, that some lyricists or
music from the Keys didn't make the cut.
We can almost imagine some of the tune titles now:
"Southernmost Salsa" or "Pirates Polka" or maybe even a
"Conch Infusion."
There is, of course, a long history of music and the Keys,
going back to the days when sailing vessels plied the waters,
wreckers prowled the shores and even pirates sought shelter in
Key West's harbor to wait out big blows.
One tune that might have survived the Keys' famous Labor
Day hurricane of 1935 is actually titled "Hurricane," with
lyrics by Oliver Dugan.
It appears in a faded collection published by the Boston
Music Co.,under the title "Topical Tunes."
Here's a snippet of the lyrics:
"Whoo oo oo -oo. Once I saw a hur-ri-cane,
It was made of wind and rain; It came in whirl-ing from the sea,
Fast-er than a wind should be..."
Well, you get the idea.
On second thought, we may know why Key West songs didn't
make it to the state playoffs.
Who would want to be reminded of hurricanes or pirates or
wreckers as Florida's state song?

A tragedy waiting to happen: Kids not wearing helmets


EDITOR:
Santa is coming soon and bringing new bikes
and scooters to some good boys and girls. It
might be a good time to post the helmet laws for
the parents of these children, especially since I
saw the other day a woman and her third-grader
on a moped/scooter riding down U.S. 1, neither
one wearing a helmet.
As I passed onto Ramrod Key, there were a
man and small boy riding bikes southbound on
the northbound side of U.S. 1. The boy was so
small, he had training wheels. But no helmet.
Where they were going, I do not know. All I
know is that I saw a very small child riding his
bike with training wheels in the wrong direction

Leave the tomatoes alone
EDITOR:
Now they are threatening the tomatoes.
I am very sad that the Incredible Fruit Stand
is coming under fire from the Florida Keys
Land and Sea Trust that operates Crane Point
Hammock in Marathon. I have enjoyed the fruit
stand every Saturday. It's part of my routine,
and my community. No harm can come from
selling some fruits and vegetables to locals.
The proceeds have been going to the
Education Coalition for Monroe County to aid


of U.S. 1 with no helmet. The fact that an adult
was there would have made not the slightest dif-
ference if he had fallen into traffic, except the
adult would have been there to see the whole
thing unfold in a split second right before his
very eyes.

Editor's note: According to Florida law, a
bicycle rider or passenger under age 16 must
wear a helmet that is properly fitted, fastened
securely and meets a nationally recognized stan-
dard. Passengers on mopeds or scooters who
are under 16 must wear helmets.


local children. Last week, a lady set up some
containers to collect articles needed by our
Troops. On Veterans Day, funds were collected
by the veterans to help other vets.
I am saddened by the Land and Sea Trust,
but I am also hopeful the Incredible Fruit Stand
will continue to show up every Saturday. How
can fruits and vegetables be threatening?

Marathon


City should buy Boot Key outright


EDITOR:
The Boot Key Bridge situation presents the
Marathon City Council with an interesting
opportunity.
Faced with a possible $10 million charge to
replace the bridge, the council instead might use
such funds to buy the island. This may be a rea-
sonable option if the value of the island is in the
right ballpark. A property appraisal of the island,
now under way, should help answer this part of
the question.
City ownership of Boot Key would mean the
city would not necessarily have to fix the bridge
and perhaps even more importantly, would not
have to maintain it and staff it with bridge keep-
ers forever. The island today, viewed from a dol-
lars-and-cents standpoint, represents a significant

EDITOR:
Christmastime is a happy time, not a time to
worry about seasonal concerns like turkeys,
. holly, cards or the size of our candy canes. It's
meant to be a season of warmth, of love to share
with each other.
SSure, we dread those relatives who gather to
reinforce the fact they're richer than we are by
giving expensive gifts to us and our kids. But we
can give the priceless gifts of unconditional love
such as hugs, time with someone, just listening
or loudly singing "Jingle Bells" in a crowd of
Christmas shoppers, or just by making a phone
call that will turn a lost friend's wrath to better-
than-before brotherhood.

liability assuming the existing island ownership
and assuming the city underwrites the repairs and
upkeep.
In other words, the city gets to pay a very
substantial repair bill plus an ongoing operating
cost obligation and yet retains no real asset
value. The bottom line here would seem to be
that if the city is going to invest millions of dol-
lars in the island, it would make sense to do so in
a way that would leave it with a real asset (own-
ership of Boot Key) rather than only liabilities
for a multimillion-dollar repair job plus perpetual
operating costs.

$5M goes to Keys projects


Key West gets
lion's share
of the money
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Another $5 million in federal
sewer funding is on the way to
the Keys, and local officials hope
more will soon trickle down
from $100 million Congress
authorized in 2004.
On Jan. 11, local dignitaries
will gather in Key West for a
signing ceremony that will allo-
cate funds for three wastewater
projects.
Key West will receive $3.6
million, $1.8 goes to Key Largo
and $200,000 is earmarked for
Key Colony Beach.
The money is administered by
the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers and being divvied up
according to an agreement ham-
mered out by local mayors,
according to the county's sewer
projects manager, Liz Wood.
That agreement, initially
drafted in 2004 and amended in
2006, earmarked $29.5 million


each for Marathon, Islamorada
and unincorporated Monroe. It
also set aside $10.3 million for
Key West, $800,000 for Layton
and $200,000 for Key Colony
Beach.
"This new allocation fits with
the ranking system," Wood said
of the split. "Projects countywide
were ranked according to a num-
ber of criteria, then the task force
decided the split."
Marathon City Manager Mike
Puto said he's not concerned that
Marathon is not receiving any-
thing in this round of funding.
"This is just the first phase of
money coming out," he said. "By
what I understand, we're in the
second round."
In August, the Marathon City
Council approved a resolution
awarding Globetec Construction
a contract worth nearly $29 mil-
lion for the construction of serv-
ice areas four and six of the city's
proposed sewer project. The con-
tract says work of area six is
contingent on funding.
U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen has already requested
close to $30 million in federal


funding in 2009, and Wood says
there's a good chance it will hap-
pen.
"They're already looking at it,
poised and ready to go," Wood
said.
Wood said Army Corps offi-
cials are considering rethinking
how the funding is allocated.
"They'd be open to pulling
the task force back together and
revaluating the process," she
said. "The selection process has
become stagnant. It really should
be reviewed annually."
She said while it's welcome,
the latest round of money is just
a drop in the bucket.
"To keep on track, we need
$150 million more as soon as
possible," she said. "That would
keep construction on schedule
with the projects that are in plan-
ning and design phases and start
those slated to begin in 2008.
That's from mile marker zero to
106, the whole kit and caboo-
dle."
Overall, however, the tab is
likely to run closer to $500 mil-
lion to completely sewer the
Keys. In 2006, the state allocated
$20 million for Monroe County's
sewers, but nothing in 2007.

Boot Key boat
tries to get
people to work
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Smorgasboat water-taxi
owner Chris Boyle said his city-
funded service to Boot Key has
had sparse ridership since traffic
to the island was halted by the
city of Marathon Dec. 3.
The city closed the Boot Key
Bridge on 20th Street oceanside
quickly after receiving a letter
from Florida Department of
Transportation bridge engineer
Frank Guyamier stating the
bridge is a safety hazard due to
its disrepair.
"The city should be aware of
this dangerous condition affect-
ing the motoring public and take
the necessary steps to correct
the deficiencies. The department
recommends that the structure
be closed until further notice
immediately," the letter read.
The island is home to rough-.
ly 25 commercial fishermen and
serves as the headquarters for


Keys Radio Group. The city
wanted to assure those workers
had an available mode of trans-
portation to the island.
Keys Radio Group owner Joe
Nascone did not immediately
return calls for comment on the
water-taxi service.
Boyle has two 18-foot boats
certified to carry a maximum of
six passengers. He has been
doing pickups at the Marathon
Boat Yard.
"I'm juggling as fast as I can,
but there's a lot of people not
thrilled with what we're provid-
ing. The people who are suffer-
ing the most are the fishermen
because I can't provide the serv-
ice they need at the hours they
run and I can't haul heavy
equipment and the stuff they
need to carry routinely," Boyle
said.
Boyle also said there will be
time when he will not be able to
make the 30-minute trip out to
the island.
"It's a long run and on bad
days it's going to be almost
impossible for me to get out
there. I don't want the stations


Keynoter


to lose broadcast time or rev-
enues," he said.
Deputy City Manager C.J.
Geotis recommended Tuesday
discontinuing the service..
"It's not working out right
now as well as we hoped and
we're starting to put new
options together for the tempo-
rary position we're in," Geotis
said.
Geotis said the city was put
in a tough position having to
close the bridge while still
awaiting an appraisal of the
island's value. The results of the
appraisal will determine how
the city chooses to approach
repairs to the bridge.
"We're still 45 to 60 days
from having the appraisal done
and we can't make a long-term
decision until we get [it] back,"
he said. "We had a lot of folks
unhappy with the situation and
didn't feel the city was doing
enough for them."
The city is funding Boyle's
operation at $150 per day until a
more concrete plan is in place.
Smorgasboat's scheduled
departures to the island are at 6
a.m. and 4:30 p.m., while return
trips are at 11 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.

College pushes more focus


Administration
has designs on
arts degrees
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Some classrooms at Florida
Keys Community College hold
far too many empty desks,
administrators say.
But President Jill Landesberg-
Boyle foresees concentrated
associate's degrees in arts and
science offered by fall, with the
goal of increasing enrollment and
providing easier transitions for
students bound for one of
Florida's 11 universities.
Students who know what
major they want to pursue would
have organized road maps to fol-
low, presenting them an end goal
for the first time. And hopefully,
Landesberg-Boyle says, it will
encourage more students to take
specialized classes to reach a goal
attractive to state universities.
Art is one discipline in need of
advertising due to the fact an
average of six to eight students
attend those classes, according to
college staff.
"Classes are running at about
one-third their capacity,"
Landesberg-Boyle said, adding
that doesn't make sense, consid-
ering the esteemed faculty.
To create a "cost-efficient"


classroom, the goal is to reach an
average of 12 to 15 students, col-
lege spokeswoman Lydia Estenoz
said. According to Landesberg-
Boyle; the state mandates 25.
The college receives 70 per-
cent of its money from state fund-
ing and 30 percent from tuition.
Gov. Charlie Crist approved a
5 percent tuition hike for colleges
to commence in January. That
means a projected $32,000
increase in revenue for the col-
lege in the spring semester.
According to the college's
2008 spring schedule, every art
course with the exception of
mixed media and abstract paint-
ing II requires extra supply fees
on top of tuition.
So rather than cutting classes
in the Art .Department,
Landesberg-Boyle is working
with Advising Director Michelle
Cherry and professor Lynne
Bentley-Kemp to develop an 18-
credit road map (associate's
degree require 60 credits) and
market such programs to more
demographics of students.
Residents with full-time jobs
make up the majority of art-class
students, staff says.
While administration wants to
continue to attract those students
seeking. hobbies, it also wants
budding artists who plan to enroll
in state universities..
"We know that Key West is an


art-patronizing community,"
Estenoz said. "The goal here is for
students to transfer seamlessly."
According to data compiled by
Cherry, in the past three years, the
University of Central Florida
accepted 80 FKCC students,
Florida State accepted 53, Florida
Atlantic drew 26 and the Uni-
versity of South Florida took 35.
Cherry says the concentrated
degrees will help FKCC students
get into the college of their
choice. Business classes are usu-
ally the most popular, she says.
Outside of a concentration in
fine arts, students will have an
opportunity in the fall to choose
from 12 different disciplines,
some of which include elemen-
tary teacher education, journal-
ism and economics.
According to Estenoz, classes
that aren't currently available,
one-dimension and two-dimen-
sion art, intermediate design and
drawing, will be available soon.
Goals for the college also
include offering four-year
degrees by the 2009-10 school
year and asking the Florida
Department of Education for $4.5
million to kick-start a marine
propulsion program.


$4,300 worth of wiring
stolen from work sites

Twenty-nine spools of cop-
per wire wbrth more than

Authorities say three 200-
pound rolls of the wire was
reported stolen between
Saturday and Monday from
Bay Ridge Road in Ocean Reef


in North Key Largo. The rest of
the rolls were stolen from two
separate locations at Key West
International Airport.
Florida Keys Electric

spools, 15 250-pound spools
and 150 feet of lighting protec-
tion wire stolen from its job site
at the new terminal. And the

Murphy: End consultant Coleman's contract


Hutton: At least
cut number of
billable hours
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

More Monroe County budget
cuts are on the horizon and
affordable-housing consultant
Jerry Coleman will likely take a
hit.
Two proposals before the
Monroe County Commission
would pare back or end a contract
with attorney Jerry Coleman.
The commission meets in reg-


ular session at 9 a.m. Dec. 19 at
the Marathon Government
Center.
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
proposes ending Coleman's con-
tract.
"I put this on the agenda
because we're going to have to
start letting people go," she said
Tuesday. "I cannot in good con-
science do that while we're pay-
ing an outside consultant $500 an
hour."
Murphy says that although
Coleman has been productive for
the county, there are now suffi-
cient staffers to handle afford-


able-housing issues.
"We have hired an affordable-
housing coordinator," she said.
"We also have an attorney who is
very quickly coming up to speed.
It's not cost effective anymore to
contract" with Coleman.
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton has also put a proposal on
the Dec. 19 agenda that would cut
back Coleman's contact with the
county's Workforce Housing
Task Force.
"Due to extreme budgetary
constraints," Hutton wrote in a
memo for the meeting, "it is no
longer feasible to allow task force
members to contact Mr.
Coleman" when there are paid
county staffers that can answer
their questions.
Since July 2005, Coleman has
billed the county some $400,000.
He counts among his accomplish-
ment a number of ordinances to
promote affordable housing in the
county as well as a land lease that
ensures housing on selected
county sites will remain afford-
able.
Coleman is but one of the out-
side attorneys with which the
county works.
In fact, on the Dec. 19 agenda,


the commission is being asked to
approve payments adding up to
more than $54,000 for a variety
of legal cases.
Of that, $41,000 is for attorney
Paul Hastings on the Galleon Bay
land-takings case in the Lower
Keys.
In October, the County
Commission approved a
$347,000 payment to Hastings,
also for the Galleon Bay case.
"Terminating Jerry Coleman's
contract will solve none of the
county's financial problems, but
it will stop affordable housing
development in its tracks,"


Realtor Donna Windle said.
Windle sits on the Workforce
House Task Force and the county
Planning Commission. She said
that without Coleman's advice,
the county would have missed
out on a $1.75 million grant for a
Lower Keys affordable Habitat
for Humanity project.
"The county attorney and the
County Commission have good
reasons for the things they do,"
Coleman said. "If they want to
continue my services, I enjoy
working with them, but I under-
stand there are budget considera-
tions."

Stolen boat found,
two men are jailed

Two men were jailed Sunday
on several charges after reportedly
being found aboard a stolen boat.
Javier Herrara, 33, of Big Pine
and Alex Ortega, 29, of
Middleburg, Fla., are charged
with counterfeiting a hull identi-
fication plate, fraud (concealing a
vessel's identification) and theft.
According to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office, the two
were aboard a large go-fast boat
at a Big Pine boat ramp. The boat
was grounded, half in and half
out of the water when Sgt.
Andrew Ensminger arrived.
Deputy Becky Herrin said that
when he asked Herrera for docu-
mentation for the boat, he pro-
duced a laminated card but infor-
mation on the card didn't match a
decal on the side of the boat.
When Ensminger and other
officers began checking hull ID
numbers and other identifying
factors on the boat, they noticed
more inconsistencies. The boat, a
Sea Hunter, had been disguised
with false markings as a


Yellowfin. And a check on the
twin 250 horsepower Suzuki
engines revealed they had been
sold with a Sea Hunter.
The Sea Hunter had been
reported stolen from Miami in
October.

Suspected bank robber
caught in Puerto Rico

A man accused of robbing
TIB Bank of the Keys in
Tavernier Aug. 21 has been-
arrested in Puerto Rico.
According to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office, the FBI
took Kenneth Franciose, 53, into.
custody last week and he'll be
returned to Monroe County to
face charges.
The Sheriff's Office says that
at 11:25 a.m. Aug. 21, a man
walked into the bank at mile
marker 92 and said he had a
bomb; he was carrying some
kind of device that had tape on it
and wires protruding.
He demanded money and
after a teller handed it over, he
left the bank on foot, taking his
"device" with him.

Lopez on the mend


Commissioner
now heads to
brother's event
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Key West City Commissioner
Clayton Lopez is recovering after
successful heart surgery Monday
at Mount Sinai Medical Center in
Miami.
Now he's heading to Orlando
this weekend for a fundraiser in
honor of his brother, Detective
Carlton Lopez, who died of a
heart attack last year.
"There are still a few more
tests," Lopez assistant Virginia
Blaylock said. "They'll do a
complete physical exam on him."
Lopez said he's grateful for
the number of citizens who've
been calling Blaylock's phone
for regular updates on his status.
Blaylock said every time she
checks her voicemail, there are
about 30 messages from people
expressing concern, asking for an
update or offering their prayers.
Lopez is still trying to tackle
city business from his hospital


bed, Blaylock
said.
Lopez was
holding meet-
ings regarding
city business
last week
when his chest
tightened to
CARLTON LOPEZ the point he
couldn't
ignore it anymore. His wife Pam
rushed him to Lower Keys
Medical Center Thursday.
Lopez is commissioner for
District 6, an area that includes
Bahama Village.
Some of his recent initiatives
and achievements are converting
six streets in Bahama Village to
one-way roads and mandating
the annual holiday parade no
longer conflict with World AIDS
Day.
At the Dec. 4 commission
meeting, Lopez cited exotic and
stray animals iguanas, other
reptiles and the large population
of chickens as future concerns
for the city.
As for his brother, Carlton
Lopez was a detective at the


Orange County Sheriff's Office.
He started his law enforcement
career in the Keys with the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
The Save Our Communities
Flag Football Game will be held
Saturday in Winter Park to raise
scholarship funds for the WAS-
SUP Family Mentoring Program,
a Central Florida youth mentor-
ing program in the Orlando area.
Orange County Sheriff's Office
volunteers will square off against
neighboring Seminole County.
The program's chief execu-
tive, Stanley Murray, said
Carlton Lopez was a mentor to
him, thus the name of the project:
"The Carlton Lopez Community
Service Scholarship."
Blaylock said residents can
give donations for the scholar-
ship until 5 p.m. Thursday. And
Clayton Lopez encourages dona-
tions for the program, though he
says he normally doesn't encour-
age Key Westers to send money
out of the community. This is a
cause well worth it, he said.
Call Blaylock at 896-3177 for
an update on the commissioner's
health or to contribute donations
to Saturday's event.

Parking code questioned


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


You can't park a car on a
bicycle rack.
Some Key West community
leaders say that's why a section
of city code doesn't make sense.
It's also why an ordinance is in
the works to amend it, they say.
"I have always hated the
bicycle substitution rule," said
Commissioner Bill Verge, who
is expected to sponsor the poten-
tial amendment. "There have
probably been 1,000 parking
spaces waived in lieu of bicycle
spaces."
It's legal in the city for devel-
opers and planners to provide
four bicycle spaces in lieu of one
parking space for cars, according
to land use regulations drafted in
1998.
Some residents, including
current Planning Board
Chairman Richard Klitenick, see
it as positive rule, advocating
Key Westers to ride their envi-
ronmentally friendly bicycles.
"A large number of people do
commute on a bike in Old
Town," said Klitenick, who will
retire his seat in February.

And while he didn't comment
on a recent proposal from owner
Matilde Ramos and attorney
Michael Halpern to convert the
Southernmost House at 1400
Duval St. to a 150-seat restau-
rant, that's-the evident inspira-
tion behind the ordinance.
Halpern, who couldn't be
reached for comment, proposes
substituting 25 needed parking
spaces with 100 bicycle spaces.
He would also add 14 vehicle
parking spaces across the street
at 1401 Duval.
A neighbor of the Southern-
most House, former federal
magistrate Hugh Morgan, is
working on drafting an ordi-
nance that would revise that rule
in an effort to stop such projects.
It would say that rather than
allowing substitution for bike
racks in any development, the
developer would have to prove a
hardship in not being able to
provide parking.
Sizeable variances like the
one proposed are passable,


Morgan said, citing city code:
"Hardship conditions shall not
be a mandatory condition of
obtaining the subject variance."
While variances for other rea-
sons require the property owner
to prove some sort of structural
"hardship," special variances for
parking do not.
At that same meeting, the
Planning Department discovered
the building's current parking
situation is not in compliance.
According to Morgan, the proj-
ect will need a total of 65 off-
street parking spaces, given the
recently discovered inadequate
parking situation.
While the proposal is on the
Dec. 20 agenda, the applicant
wants it tabled until March 20.
The commission recently
passed an AIDS Help project on
Catherine Street that required 14
parking spaces, one per unit.
AIDS Help was short nine
spaces but the project was
approved by supplementing it
with bicycle .spaces, though
many residents don't drive due
to illness.


Two charged with

attempted murder


Two Miami men are being
held at the Monroe County
Detention Center, one accused of
stabbing an Islamorada man over
damage to a personal watercraft,
the other accused of helping him
commit the stabbing over the
weekend.
Hiram Opissa, 39, is charged
with attempted murder. Michel
Zuaznabar, 39, is charged with
being a principal in the first
degree to attempted murder, and
with aggravated assault.
Here's what happened,
according to the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office:
When deputies responded to
the Coconut Cove Resort, mile
marker 84.8, at 6 p.m. Sunday to
reports of a stabbing, the victim,
Phillip Proctor, 23, who works
for a personal-watercraft rental
company, was already en route to
Mariners Hospital with his
employer. He was later airlifted
to Ryder Trauma Center for the
stab wound in the middle of his
chest.
Doctors at Mariners said the
knife that. caused the wound


missed hitting his
inch.


heart by an


According to witnesses, a
group of people from Miami who
were staying at the resort rented
personal watercraft that day from
Islamorada Water Sports. When
they returned them, one reported-
ly had extensive damage.
Three employees of the rental
company, along with the owner,
went to the resort to try to resolve
the issue. After initial discussion,
the owner and one of the employ-
ees left to assess the damage so
they could give the renters an
estimate of what they owed.
While they were gone, two
other employees continued to
talk with the group and, during
the ongoing discussion, the two
suspects retrieved knives from
their hotel room.
- Zuaznabar reportedly swung
his knife at Proctor. He jumped
back arid wasn't injured. Just
minutes later, though, Opisso
lunged at him, stabbing him in
the middle of his chest.

Forster opens
Hookup Lounge
to honor guide

Mike Forster, the "Mangrove"

Restaurant of Islamorada, has
cast his line into a new venture.
It's the Capt. Hank Brown
Hookup Lounge inside the reborn
Manny & Isa's restaurant in the
old Squid Row restaurant at mile
marker 81.9 oceanside.


"Hank's been such a good
friend, business partner and leg-
end in Islamorada, I wanted to
honor him and give the Hookup
Lounge a local flare," Forster
said.
Although the term "hookup"
has a connotation in the dating
realm, it's a tribute to Brown's
40-year career as a record-hold-
ing backcountry guide and the
250 different lures he created
that, since 1992, sell under the


Capt. Hank Brown Hookup Lure
name.
Capt. Hank Brown's Hookup
Lounge is an intimate bar that
mostly serves restaurant cus-
tomers and caters special parties.
On the left side of the bar hangs a
recent Stacie Krupa portrait of
Brown holding a snook. On the
right is a portrait of him 20 years
ago.
It's open every day except
Tuesday from 11:30 a.m. to 10
p.m..For information call 664-

Hold back the buying urge


Think twice.
about gifts
for yourself
With more than half of us
expecting to play Santa for our-
selves this holiday season, a
University of Florida family
finance expert warns that being
self-indulgent even at bargain
prices can lead to a bad case of
buyer's remorse.
According to an annual con-
sumer survey conducted for the
National Retail Federation, 56
percent of us expect to treat our-
selves this season due to holiday
sales. Another 30 percent aren't
sure, and 13 percent say they can
resist temptation.
On top of the $816 the average
consumer expects to spend on the
holidays this year, they'll tack on
another $106 treating themselves,
the survey said. The trend has
held steady. The same survey in
2002 showed 55 percent of
respondents intended to spend on
themselves.
"If you start buying for your-
self while you're buying for other
people, especially, you really run
the risk of overspending," said
Michael Gutter, an assistant pro-
fessor in family financial man-


agement with the Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences..
"You're just going to likely spend
more than you intended and
you're only going to end up being
frustrated in the result."
Gutter's No. 1 rule for avoid-
ing a financial holiday hangover:
Before you ever step foot in a
store; make a budget. Either jot
down specific gift ideas for those
on your list or the amount you
can spend on each person.
"Making those lists in advance
can help people really kind of set
limits, set boundaries for. them-
selves," he said. "And if your
name isn't on the list of people
that you're buying for, then that
can sometimes be helpful."
Gail Cunningham, spokesman
for the Silver Spring, Md.,-based
National Foundation for Credit
Counseling, says not sticking to a
budget is one of the biggest con-
sumer mistakes. "People are well
intentioned," she said. "About
half of the people that go out
shopping make a budget, and half
will exceed that dollar amount."
Once you're out shopping,
instead of grabbing those half-
price shoes that go perfectly with
your new black skirt, pass the
buck, Gutter says. Go home and


drop a hint about the shoes to a
relative or friend who may be
looking for a good gift idea.
"If there's a sweater you really
like and you really wanted to get
it for yourself, or a video game.or
whatever it is. There's nothing
wrong with letting people know,"
he said. "In fact, I find that if you
do that, people are grateful.
Because no one knows what to
get anyone, most of the time."
If no one takes your well-
placed hint, evaluate the gifts you
do get. Often you can go back
and buy those perfect shoes with
a gift card or cash. Or you can
take back a present you don't like
and exchange it for the shoes.
Other rules on Gutter's list to
avoid a depressing January:
If you can do your holiday
shopping with cash or a debit
card, leave the interest-accruing
credit cards safely at home.
+ Do not, under any circum-
stances, use credit cards to charge
more than you can pay off by the
end of February without ignoring
other bills.
Think about what you're
spending on the holiday and why.
There is enormous pressure to
spend to make the holiday "per-
fect," but you can ignore it.

Vietnam Memorial


coming south


Tribute has all 58,453 names, and then some


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Retired U.S. Na\ v man like Dnscoll
doesn't think residents of Key West should
have to travel to Washington. D.C.. to see
the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
He thinks it should come to us.
That's why he's looking for money to
bring a military tribute, a close replica of
the real thing with 58,453 names, to Key
West next year. The monument, provided
b% the nonprofit American Veterans
Traveling Tribute, makes its way around
the country. making more than 30 trips this
year. according to its Web site.
"There are about a dozen names on the
\ all of Conchs." Driscoll said. "There are a
great number of people who are related to
and know people on the %wall."
Driscoll. also the executive director of
the Old Island Restoration Foundation, is
on a mission to raise the necessary $9.000
in donations to bring the traveling memo-
rial to the Keys.
The local Militari Affairs Committee,
comprising veterans and community lead-
ers. is seeking those funds. Drincoll said.
Last time the ra\ehng wall came for a
Sisit w\as in 1998.
"It's a powerful thing." AVTT Chief
Executive Don Allen said. "We're not
some sort of cemetery) or morbid place;
we're a tribute. We're about celebrating."


Ten years ago it was only a \ all. Now
it includes an arra\ of other memorabilia:
+ A salute to those killed m combat from
the Vietnam War up to Sept. 11. 2001.
Names of the Sept. 11, 2001. victims.
The names of casualties from the
Iraq War. etched into gold dog tags.
A patriotic art exhibit.
Because it \\ ll be the 10th anniversarN
of the wall visiting the Southernmost Ciy3.
it \ ill stay extra long free of extra cost,
Dec..3 to 15, 2008. Typically, the tribute
stays in one city about six days.
The American Veterans Travel Tribute
isn't the only traveling Vietnam Veterans


Memonal.
The first was \eteran John De itt's
idea. His is based out of \hlte Pine.
Mich.. and dubbed the MNoving Wall.
Devitt watched as the real wall was ded-
icated m our nation's capital m 1982 and
decided he wanted to spread that across the
nation and organized the first display in
T\ ler. Texas, in 1984. AVTT began in 1988.
Driscoll. who served in the Navy for 33
years, said Key West High School would
make a good venue for the presentation.
Anyone interested in donating or partic-
ipating can contact Driscoll at bringthewall

Eagles win two straight


Hoops squad
is now at 3-1
in early going
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Three wins in four games
have given Island Christian
School's boys basketball team an
unexpectedly strong start.
"The team is looking a lot bet-
ter than last year," senior leader
Nathan Overfield said. "We're
playing together."
Coach Dean Allman noted
steady improvements in the
squad but cautioned, "The sched-
ule gets a lot tougher in January."
The Eagles finished the 2007
portion of the winter season
Tuesday by pulling away from
Colonial Christian, 55-30.
Overfield scored 27 points in
three quarters, then sat most of
the fourth as Allman rotated
bench players into the game.
Junior wingman Noah Sutter
took over, scoring eight of his 14
points in the fourth quarter.
Starting guard Aaron Izaguirre
missed much of the game because
of fouls, ending with four points.
Phillip Izaguirre and Donnie
Benbow scored four each, and
Tim Globus added a bucket.
"We're playing pretty well as
long as we stay in the in the half-
court offense," Overfield said. To
improve a shaky transition game,
he .advised, "Everybody just


needs to stay calm out there."
The win, giving the Eagles a
two-game sweep over Colonial,
came on the heels of Friday's 55-
27 victory over rival Princeton
Christian.
The Eagles trailed 6-0 at the
start but regrouped to lead at half-
time, 24-21.
Then the ICS defense com-
pletely shut down the Panther
offense, allowing only three field
goals in the second half.
"We finally played very good
team defense," Allman said.
"Everybody got to the right
spots."
SFirst-year player Stormy
Bradway played well defensively
off the bench when the Eagles ran
into foul trouble, Allman said.
"Stormy boxed out and shut
down his man."
Overfield scored a team-high
20 points, while Aaron Izaguirre
scored 13 and Phillip Izaguirre
had 12. Sutter scored six points in
the fourth to finish with eight.
Ezra Jimenez scored two.
"Nathan is being very
unselfish and sharing the ball,"
Allman said.
The Eagles do not play again
until Jan. 14, when they take the
court against a strong Calusa
Prep program.
Island Christian also has two
games remaining against
MacArthur South, and a rematch
with the Barrington Academy
team that handed the Eagles its
only defeat so far.

Clock expires, Conchs win


Valdez's pair
gives Key West
its first victory
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

The Key West High School
boys basketball team won its
first game of the season over
the weekend, 62-61, over
Northwest Christian, and then
continued to play well in a 70-
52 loss to undefeated Charlotte
of Punta Gorda.
Freshman point guard Keith
Valdez, who exhibited leader-


ship in both games, hit two free
throws with eight seconds to
play gave the Conchs a 62-60
lead Friday night with eight
seconds left in regulation.'
Northwest Christian went to
the line with a chance to tie the
game with no time left and the
noise in the Bobby Menendez
Gym at its highest level of the
night. A second free throw
failed to drop, however, and a
Conch celebration ensued.
Junior Vladimyr Sibera led
the Conchs with 18 points

Marathon nearly

go by wayside
By RYAN McCARTHY

Marathon High School bas-
ketball coach Kevin Freeman
said he would much rather it did-
n't happen the way it did, but the
Dolphins won their opening dis-
trict game of the season in
thrilling fashion over Palmer
Trinity School Saturday.
The Dolnhins led the entire


game by as many as 14 points,
but as they have been prone to do
this year let that lead slip away.
The Falcons tied the game at
55-55 on a layup with just four
seconds remaining in regulation,
but the Dolphins dominated over-
time and won by a deceptively
comfortable 10-point margin, 70-
60.
"The last three games, we
build a lead and watch it slowly
go down. We're starting off great
and we're not finishing well,"

Marathon senior guard Blake Friedman advances the ball
during Saturday's home game against district rival Palmer
Trinity School. Friedman led the Dolphins with 27 points as the
team earned its first district victory of the season.


Dolphins hang on


BASKETBALL / From 17

Freeman said. "I don't know if
we lose focus or become less
aggressive; we'-ve been working
on that."
Despite letting leads slip
away, the Dolphins (2-1, 1-0)
have been able to escape with
victories in two of their first three
regular season games.
Senior. Blake Friedman con-
tinued to play well early on for
the Dolphins, scoring 27 points to
go along with nine rebounds and
three steals.
Point guard Eric Armstrong
scored ,a career-high 17 points
and had four assists and four
steals in the game. Freeman said
Travis Leachman and Eric Carey
played strong defensively for the
Dolphins.
Marathon dominated the
Falcons early on, leading- 19-6
after the first quarter and 36-27 at
the half. But after building a 14-
point lead in the third quarter, the
Dolphins went cold.
"It wasn't really their pres-
sure, we just weren't making
shots. Whenever they did press
we broke it easily, which was a
good sign for us," Freeman said.
The Dolphins held a slim 46-42
lead after three quarters.
In overtime, Friedman scored
on a layup to give the Dolphins a
57-55 lead. They stopped the
Falcons on their next trip up the
court and Armstrong nailed a 3-


pointer to make it a five-point
game..
Palmer would lose composure
and receive a technical foul short-
ly after. Friedman made both
shots and after a Carey layup, the
Dolphins scored nine unan-
swered points to open the over-
time period.
The Falcons would get back
within four points, but were
unable to close the gap.

Girls drop opener
The Dolphin girls dropped
their game earlier in the day
against the Falcons, 57-23, but
played much better than in recent
losses to Westminster Christian
and Florida Christian.
Coach Amanda Hirschauer
said she was proud of the girls'
effort, especially after being
down at halftime 38-7.
"We played so much better in
the second half. They took care of
the ball and we had less turnovers
in the second half," she said.
Junior Latrice Jackson led the
way for the Dolphins with 15
points, nine of which came in the
second half.
"She basically controls the
team on the court. She's not
afraid to shoot the ball or drive it,
which if she continues to do so
will get more opportunities on the
free throw line," Hirschauer said.
The Dolphins (0-5) will host
Westwood Christian School
Friday at 5:30 p.m. and Miami
Christian at 4 p.m. Saturday.

Lady Conchs keep on rolling Babich impresses


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Playing its third game in four
days, the Key West High School
girls soccer team defeated Ronald
Reagan, 9-1, Monday night at
Tommy Roberts Memorial
Stadium in a District 16-4A game
stopped in the second half by the
eight-goal mercy rule.
The victory improved the
Conchs' record to 8-4 overall and
8-0 in the district.
Senior Kara Haack scored three
goals to lead the Conchs, who fell
behind, 1-0, early in the game.
"We came out flat and Kara
immediately sensed that," coach
Scott Paul said. "She leads with
her actions and her words."
Paul said Haack had been in a
scoring slump because she was
: chipping the ball instead of kicking
it hard and following through. With
her form back intact, she rocketed a
goal that tied the score and gave the
Conchs the momentum that contin-
ued the rest of the game.
Gigi Orofino added two goals,
the first of which broke the 1-1 tie.
The Conchs, who defeated St.
Brendan, 4-1, Friday afternoon,
were coming off a 2-1 loss


Saturday at Archbishop Carroll.
"That was a great game," Paul
said. "We had been waiting for
strong competition, and Carroll
plays with lots of intensity and is
always very.physical."
The Conchs will play at
Monsignor Pace at 5 p.m. Saturday.

THE


CONCHS /From 17

while Valdez.had 12 and soph-
omore Irekaz Womack-Ashe
added 11.
Saturday night, the compe-
tition level rose considerably
with the invasion of the
Conchs' gym by a talented,
high-flying Charlotte team.
Dago Pena, a 6-foot-6 for-
ward who has signed to play at
Florida Atlantic University,
scored the first eight points of
the game, two on a dunk. He
went on to score 19 points, as
did 6-for-3 teammate Chris
Stephenson, who has commit-
ted to North Carolina-
Asheville. Stephenson had
four dunks.
Key West, though, would
not be intimidated.
Sophomore Zach Babich
came off the bench and
blocked a shot attempt by
Pena, who looked stunned.
Babich also scored four quick
points to ignite a rally that left
the Conchs trailing by only 16-
11 after the first quarter.
The Tarpons pulled away to
a 13-point lead in the second
quarter, but the Conchs nar-
rowed the score to 29-22 on a
3-point shot by Valdez.
Charlotte came back to score


six points fora 35-22 halftime
lead,
In the third quarter, a duel
emerged between a smiling
Stephenson and grim-faced
Conch guard Michael
Gallagher. After Stephenson
stole the ball from Gallagher
and went in for a layup,
Gallagher came back in his
I'll-show-you style to hit two
3-pointers and a running shot
in the lane.
With an effort that never
wilted, the Conchs stayed
within 13 points for much of
the final quarter. The final 18-
point margin was the widest of
the game for Charlotte, which
improved to 6-0.
Valdez led the Conchs with
12 points, and Gallagher and
Babich each had 10.
"I was very happy with how
we played in both games,"
Key West coach Paul Davis
said. "I was most impressed
with Babich he had three or
four blocked shots and sur-
prised the whole gym."
The 1-5 Conchs will play 7
p.m. District 16-4A home
games Friday and Saturday
against Edison and Mater
Academy, respectively. Their
game Tuesday at St. Brendan
was completed after press
time.

Lady Canes fall on


last-minute shot


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Team members poured onto
the Coral Shores field to cele-
brate a stunning comeback in the
closing minutes Friday.
Coral Shores' Lady Hurricanes
were left to look on iii disbelief as
Archbishop Carroll's Lady
Bulldogs hugged and laughed at
midfield after scoring three late
goals to win, 3-2.
"We dominated the game for
60 minutes and decided to not
play the last 20," Hurricane
coach Clint Arsenault said.
"Disappointing? Absolutely,"
he said. "Devastating? Hardly."
The Lady Canes (6-3-1) play
Carroll twice more later in the
regular season, then could see the
Bulldogs a third time in the
District 16-3A Tournament.
"The only game that really
matters will be the district [tour-
nament]," the coach said.
Coral Shores still ranks as one
of three top contenders in the six-
team district, along with Carroll
(8-3) and Gulliver Prep.
The Lady Hurricanes looked
like a playoff-caliber team in the
first half Friday, scoring twice in
less than two minutes early in the
match.


Senior striker Brooks Burdick
scored both goals, taking a cross
Chelsea Russell on the left wing
with 6 minutes, 57 seconds off
the clock.
Eight seconds later, Samantha
Ragan passed from the center left
for Burdick's second goal.
The Cane defense, anchored
by sweeper Megan Guenther,
kept the lid on the Bulldogs as
Coral Shores went out in com-
mand at halftime, 2-0.
Carroll could not mount an
effective offense until only 24
minutes remained, when the
Bulldogs first scored. They then
added two more.
"We gave them hope at 56:00
[into the game], life at 74:30 and
the game at 79:00," Arsenault said.
Carroll scored the game-win-
ner off a comer kick with one
minute left in the contest.
"If we can put together 80
minutes of soccer and play
defense on comer kicks, there is
no doubt in my mind we will
[play in] the postseason,"
Arsenault said.
Coral Shores plays three
games on the road, beginning
with a Friday trip to North
Broward Prep, before going on
holiday break.

Soccer Dolphins stay tough


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Marathon High School girls
soccer coach Dennis Doll said
he was so excited he could bare-
ly sleep that night after the team
played to a 2-2 tie against dis-
trict power Palmer Trinity
School Monday.
The surprising Dolphins
moved to 7-3-1 on the year after
defeating Island Christian
School Friday, 3-1, in another
district matchup.
Palmer defeated Marathon
handily in their second game of
the year, 6-0, but a much-
improved Dolphins team took a
lead into the final minutes of


what was a physical matchup.
"This game I really expected
to just be close and our girls
seemed to come through again,"
Doll said. "This team was much
more skilled but our kids came
to play and I think they thought
they were just going to have a
walkthrough."
It proved to be anything but,
even though Palmer did get on
the board first with a goal that
beat keeper Julietta Pezzela top
right. The Falcons would take a
1-0 lead into halftime.
The Dolphins got on the
board after seventh-grader
Jasmine DeLacruse was fouled


in the box and Katie Landry
converted the penalty.
Doll said the team had come
into game with a mainly defen-
sive game plan, but Landry's
goal changed its outlook.
DeLacruse gave the Dolphins
the lead when she booted home
a Landry rebound.
Landry fired a shot high from
just outside the box, the keeper
bobbled the rebound and
DeLacruse charged in.
Palmer tied the score late in
the game on a shot that found a
way through three Dolphin
defenders and beat Pezzela.
Marathon will visit
Westwood Christian School
Thursday.

PEOPLE'S


Fins fall flat in 6-0 loss


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
boys soccer team lost a Friday
home game to Ransom
Everglades, 6-0, in what coach
Jim Murphy called the team's
flattest effort so far this season.
"They scored on us probably
in the first 45 seconds and from
that point forward it just got
worse. I think that'hurt us quick
and we were in trouble for the
rest of the game," Murphy said.
The Dolphins (3-5-2) were
also hampered by losing Sean
O'Connor and Matt DeFillips -
two of the team's top two scorers
- to injury.
"That really had a huge effect
on us. Sean's been playing center
midfielder and controlling the
middle really well," Murphy said.
DeFillips was injured playing
in a junior varsity game the night
before.
The Raiders continued to pour
it on after their early goal, advanc-
ing the ball nicely up the field and
beating goalie Jay Hegland high
to his left to take a 2-0 lead.
The Raiders' third goal came
on a through ball and crossing


ball from the left, while their
fourth came on a long breakaway
off a through ball.
"Of their first four shots, three
went in. They came at us quick
and after that it was the game,"
Murphy said.
Hegland made a great save off
a crossing ball from the right side
to prevent any more Raider goals
in the first half.
Murphy said the team had a
few scoring chances, but with 25
minutes remaining he began
pulling starting players from the


game.
. "I wanted to get some of the
younger kids experience,"
Murphy said, adding that
Ransom and Westminster have
been the top teams the Dolphins
have faced this year.
Murphy said senior George
Hoffman did well controlling the
middle of the field for the
Dolphins.
"Without him, we'd have been
in more trouble," he said.
The Dolphins visit Palmer
Trinity School at 4 p.m. today in
their final game until after the
Christmas holiday.

A match Friday could put the
Coral Shores soccer team in a
place it's never been before: first
in District 16-3A rankings.
The Hurricanes host Ransom


Everglades for the 6 p.m. Friday
game at Coral Shores.
"That will be our biggest
game of the regular season,"
coach Jorge Bosque said.
Coral Shores is 3-1 against
16-3A foes, the only loss coming
on a 5-4 decision at Ransom.
The Canes (7-3 overall) bol-
stered their spot in .the district
with Friday's 4-0 shutout of
Archbishop Carroll.
Patrick Lofton scored two
goals, with Mike Loguercio and
Chris Rini each booting one.
"We had more scoring oppor-
tunities and we'll need to capital-
ize on those against stronger
teams," Bosque said.
Defensively, Oliver
Niworowski and Rini held-the
field in front of keeper Richard
Fernandez in the shutout.
"Mikey Hampson played very
well in midfield in his first game
back from injury," Bosque said.
"Fabian Placencia has joined
Loguercio and Lofton [on the
front line] and they're doing a
real nice job."
It has been a season of firsts
for the Hurricanes, including the
first win over Gulliver Prep in
more than a decade, and a chance
at the district lead.
In another first, Coral Shores
finished November ranked as the
No. 3 team in 3A in state prep rank-
ings, Bosque said. "I know we've
never been that high before."
Coral Shores also plays at
Westminster Academy Monday,
then hosts Key West Dec. 20.

From the.Live Vicariously

Me file, Capt. Billy Turnbull
from Duck Key is about as close
to the recently departed Evel
Knievel on the water as you can
get.
From the bow of his 18-foot
Boston Whaler, he's had some
notable catches in the past, such
as a 200-pound plus tarpon, 300-
pound mako and an equally large
swordfish. Last week, though,
Turbull had one of those magi-
cal swordfish days by himself.
As the story goes, his friend
Mike Nealis dusted him Monday
morning after agreeing to meet
for a day of swordfishing over
cocktails the night before.
Tumbull, all rigged and ready, set
out to the swordfish grounds any-
way in his Whaler in roughly 3-
to 4-foot seas. After hooking and
releasing a 100-pound swordfish,
which took roughly an hour and
15 minutes, and a 60-pounder
released quicker at 40 minutes,
the big one hit.
"This fish jumped and went
crazy. After about an hour and a
half, I just couldn't budge it. It
would hang about 20 feet under
the boat. I took two shots with the
harpoon, and what a fire drill that
was. Steering the boat, putting
