"We're spending more money
than we're taking in," county
Public Works Director Dent
Pierce told the commission in
November. "We have 28 bridges


that are really of concern. There
are no funds for repairs if we con-
tinue on this trend."
Pierce recommended the
County Commission impose a 5-
cent increase to the local-option
gas tax. He also recommends


adding a ninth penny to another
local option gas tax.
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton said there are actually two
local-option gas taxes defined
under two separate state statutes.
"It's kind of crazy," she said,
"but there are two separate statu-

taxes."
Both laws limit the use of the
tax to transportation expenditures
such as maintenance and repair.
Pierce said that's just where the
county needs help.
The additional five pennies
are estimated to bring in $1.25
million annually. The ninth
pernn\ wouldd bring in another
halt a million dollars a \ear. offi-
culs 'a\
Huttloin ai the count\
imposed the first 4 cents of thei
gas lta in 19s3. then added 2
cents more in l1J'. The other

Pierce said most the 2th
bridges in unincorporated
Monroe C,-unr\ \ere built in the
6ll.tis and are hearing the end ,of
their 50-year lifespan.


In addition, the county is
responsible for close to 400 miles
of road, many of which will need
resurfacing after countywide
sewer systems are installed.
At its November meeting in
Key Largo, the County
Commission considered the
options of increasing gas taxes or,.
instead, imposing a special road
assessment. The commissioners
said they preferred a look at the
Cas ta1 rather than an assessment,
large\ because residents and
tourism alike share the gas ta\.

among the county and.municipal-

"Since the ordinance was last
revised," Hutton said, "we have
new municipalities."
In the proposed ordinances,
Marathon and Islamorada have
been added to Layton, Key West

CARJACK / From 1

back seat of the 2007 Toyota.
The driver .stopped about
11:30 p.m. at the Gateway Shell
in Florida City to get gas.
At the same time, Waters,
Bell and Johnson arrived at the
gas station in. a 2001 Oldsmobile
that had been reported carjacked
five days earlier.
Another vehicle also arrived:
a Honda that Cade and an
unidentified male had stolen
about an hour earlier at a
Chevron, police said.
Cade got out of the Honda,
pressed a handgun into the chest
of the chef and drove off not
realizing Holderman was in the
car.
Waters, Bell and Johnson fol-
lowed in the Oldsmobile, while
the fifth suspect followed in the
Honda.
According to a police report,
a Florida City police officer wit-
nessed the carjacking and
,attempted to stop the Toyota in
his marked car. The cars fled
south, chased by police.
According to police, Cade hit
speeds of more than 100 mph
and swerved. About 12:30 a.m.,
he lost control of the car at mile
marker 114 in a construction site,
hitting the soft shoulder, veering
to the left and crashing into a
semitrailer hauling food. The
crash destroyed the car and
trashed the rig, causing a fire.
The truck driver, Oliver Alls,
55, jumped from the burning
truck. He was treated at Miami's
Jackson Memorial Hospital for
slight bums on his arms.


"You don't have too much
time to think in a situation like
that, you just-try to stay alive,"
Alls told WFOR-CBS4. "There
was fire all around the truck. All
you can do is jump out and try to
save yourself. That's what I did."
The two vehicles essentially
became one, burst into flames
and traveled roughly 1,000 feet
north, tossing debris along the
way.
Cade and Holderman were
pronounced dead at the scene.
Theirs were the 21st and 22nd-
traffic deaths south of Florida
.City this year.
Holderman, who' was born
and raised in Homestead, was
buried Monday following a serv-
ice with 600 people in atten-
dance.
She was the mother of two
girls, Tabitha Rodriguez, 8, and
Tatum Rodriguez, 10, both stu-
dents at Avocado Elementary
School. The father of the girls is
Yanko Rodriguez, a Homestead
police officer, said Holderman's
mother, Rebecca Ray Murphy.
Holderman lived with her
parents and two siblings, Patrick
Murphy, 20, and Samantha
Murphy, 19.
She had worked at the Ocean
Reef Club a little less than a year.
"We've started a fund for the
ongoing care of her daughters,"
said Bill Hackelton, director of

Teens charged in
Lower Keys thefts

Two teens have been arrest-
ed, charged with at least four
counts of burglary and theft.
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office dispatchers received
three reports Thursday of auto
burglaries on Alamanda Drive
and LaBrisa Lane on
Sugarloaf Key, according to
the Sheriff's Office. Deputy
Becky Herrin said cash, credit
cards and electronic equip-
ment were stolen sometime
dtBeiveen-Wednesda. night and
Thursday_. A bicycle was als_4


taken from in front of one of
the victim's houses.
Deputy David Chavka
responded and shortly after
taking the reports went to the
area of the Sugarloaf Lodge,
where he spotted two teens on
bicycles. He approached and
noticed one of the bikes
matched the description of the
one stolen. Subsequent inves-
tigation revealed the teens had
some of the items stolen from
the cars, Herrin said.
Detrick Rainge, 17, of
Sugarloaf Key and Jack
Young, 18, of Key West were
charged with multiple c;oiints
of burglary and theft.

Grassi

gets

house

arrest


Former city
firefighter
fails drug tests
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com
U.S. District Court Judge
James Lawrence King ordered
former Key West firefighter
Joseph Grassi to six months of
home confinement Wednesday
for violating probation stem-
ming from an old drug charge.
In a federal Key West
courtroom, Grassi admitted
violating his probation with
five counts of positive cocaine
urinalysis and unauthorized
travel. In addition to the house
arrest, he has to go through a
drug treatment program.
Grassi served nearly three
years in prison for a 2001
arrest for cocaine possession
with intent to sell.
He was convicted in 2003
on one count of possession
with the intent to distribute,
two counts of making false
statements to a federal grand
jury and four counts of
obstruction.
Grassi was allegedly video-
taped telling a federal inform-
ant he had sold cocaine to
other members of the Key
West Fire Department. The
tapes also showed him pur-
chasing cocaine.
Local officials, including
Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson and Monroe
County School District
Superintendent Randy
Acevedo, went to bat for
Grassi, writing letters of sup-
port saying.he is an integral
part of the community.
Since his return to the com-
munity, Grassi has been
coaching a boys' football team
and girl's softball league,
according to McPherson. He
is also caring for his elderly
mother. ,

Boot Key Bridge

problem spans years

If Santa could deliver a big gift-wrapped present this year, we
bet there are plenty of folks who'd wish for the Boot Key
Bridge headache to simply go away.
In today's Keynoter, Marathon reporter Ryan McCarthy
reports on the latest cost estimate to repair that deteriorating
span: $8.7 million and counting (it was $5 million back in
August).
For those with short memories, the whole Boot Key Bridge
issue became a Marathon headache during that awkward tran-
sition when Marathon first incorporated in 1999.
The Boot Key Bridge was a county-maintained span. So was
the Marathon Community Park Phase 1, which was built with
county funding before incorporation.
Sometimes fractious negotiations arose between city fathers
sitting on the first Marathon City Council and the county.
In one rather famous incident, the county actually closed the
Boot Key Bridge when patience wore thin over who was going
to pay the bridge tender's salary and which public assets would
be transferred from county to city.
.Well, the city "won" the control battle, got title to the
Community Park, the city streets and the Boot Key Bridge.
Seven years later and facing an $8.7 million repair bill, we
suspect that victory now tastes rather bitter.
Keys Radio Group and two dozen commercial fishermen
who operate on Boot Key are the ones most immediately
impacted by the bridge closure. They face prospects that it will
simply be cheaper for Marathon to remove the drawbridge por-
tion (at a cost of $800,000) than replacing the span for limited,
private use.
And lawsuits are threatened adding more costs.
In the meantime, the Keys Radio Group "Morning Mix"
crew is operating out of the Village Cafe in the Gulfside Village
plaza. The station's tower crew and fishermen have to access
the island by boat.
There's no easy or inexpensive solution to this problem that
we can find.
We don't anticipate any secret Santa hovering in the wings
waiting to surprise all with a gift-wrapped new bridge.
And here's the part that adds more lumps of coal to this tor-
tured holiday tale.
The Monroe County Commission will take up a proposal
Wednesday to hike county gas taxes by 6 cents a gallon, in part,
to .help pay for badly needed repairs to county roads and
bridges.
So here's a case where all taxpayers and the government
officials wrestling with this are looking at some bad chqio-
es ahead. And no Santa riding to the rescue that we can see.

Helmet would have prevented teen's premature death


EDITOR:
I am writing in response to a Wednesday let-
ter to the editor titled "A tragedy waiting to hap-
pen: Kids not wearing helmets."
I am so glad that Ms. Golden brought this
subject to the public's attention. It cannot be
stated enough. My husband and I have spent the
past five holiday seasons missing a young man
named Tyler.
Tyler was 17 when he made the decision to
get onto a friend's motorcycle, without a helmet,
for a quick ride around the block. He was not
supposed to be doing this and it was unbeknown
to his parents, but children often do things they
are not supposed to and never even imagine that
they will be hurt.
Tyler died the day he decided to do this.
There wasn't a scratch or a bruise on his
beautiful body but he hit his head just right.
With a helmet on, he would have walked away,
went to his senior prom, have been graduating


from college this coming year, and gone on to
live this wonderful life we have been given. But
he didn't and the world is the worse for it.
Parents, please make sure your children wear
helmets. A scooter, a skateboard, a bike, a
moped, a motorcycle it doesn't matter
because hitting your head "just right" can hap-
pen to anyone.
Tyler Alexander Newsome was my stepson
and he was loved. No day passes without him
being remembered and missed. I don't know
how his father, my husband, takes one breath
after another. Sometimes his grief is too difficult
to watch.
I am not writing this to gain your sympathy
or to make you sad. I am writing this to help
prevent, if but one, other Tyler stories from
occurring. I implore you.

Grace Jones staff merits parents thanks


EDITOR:
I would like to take this opportunity to
express my sincere appreciation to the
employees of Grace Jones Day Care. It is
such an amazing facility.
My son has been attending this school for
almost three months now, and is having a
great time. Grace Jones provides breakfast,
snacks and hot lunches every day to all of
the children who attend.
I want to thank Ms. Iris Coe for all of her
time and dedication to the children and the


school, and also a huge thank you to all of
the teachers that give their time to helping
raise and watch our children that attend
there.
Every day I go to work with the comfort
that my child is.very well taken care of. I
hope that Grace Jones keeps receiving the
necessary funding from our very giving
community, to help facilitate the needs of
this wonderful establishment.

Tanner the 'consummate' police officer


EDITOR:
I had the honor of working with Monroe
County Sheriff's Office Deputy Robin
Tanner in the year I was an Emergency
Room nurse at Fisherman's Hospital.
Honestly, she was one of the finest police
officers I had ever met.
,She was a consummate professional. She
was a calming influence in situations that
demanded exactly that. She took the motto
"to protect and serve" very seriously. In dark
situations, she was a shining light.

Deputy died trying to help
EDITOR:
Thursday,,Monroe County lost a wonder-
ful woman. She was killed doing her job.
On the way to a medical emergency,
crashed her cat at the rate of speed that a
deputy would normally be going to help an
emergency victim so that no one else would
be harmed.
Deputy Robin Tanner was a friend to all.
May she rest in peace. God bless Robin. I
will miss her terribly.

TDC works fine as it is


EDITOR:
Having been one of the original
board members of the Monroe
County Tourist Development Council,
I remember that we established the
organization with the concept of pro-
moting tourism and the economy of
the entire Keys with board members
from all areas.
Granted, I have not followed the
activities of the TDC closely for quite
some time, but I hope the original pur-
pose remains the same. I believe the
chambers of commerce are the pulse of


the business community and as such,
should have a strong voice in the deci-
sions and operations of the TDC.
I believe the TDC should be kept
out of the political arena and remain a
business organization. I realize the
council has changed somewhat over
the years, but I would hope not to the
extent of making decisions at the
pleasure of one person, be it Key
West Mayor Morgan McPherson or
anyone else.

Parade was far from vulgar


EDITOR:
Re: The story "Parade gets race
but not the boats," having not seen
the parade, the display in question
was not witnessed by this writer.
However, when defining vulgar, two
people quoted in the story, Glen
Martin and Tammy Wile, are wrong
about its definition
Vulgar is using the lord's name to
promote the genocide of Muslims in
Iraq. Vulgar is teaching children that
soldiers invading another country for,
oil is OK or cool.
Sexuality (not sex) is not vulgar.
It may be many things like inappro-


private, poorly placed in the parade or
even bad form for a public display
but it certainly is not vulgar.
As for Mr. Martin, he should also
realize that not everyone celebrates
the Christian way in December.
Some people actually have a differ-
ent reason for their celebrations.
How about we all ease up on the
parade entrants, knock back some
eggnog, buy some retailed shiny stuff
and get on with the winter message
of peace?
Boyd Applegate
San Diego, Calif.


All in all, it was a great parade


EDITOR:
First of all, we would like to con-
gratulate all the winners in the
Christmas boat parade held Dec. 8 in
Boot Key Harbor, Marathon.
We at the Dockside Bar & Grill
would like to state that we only sup-
plied a place for the judges to judge
the boats and use our stage to present
the awards, make announcements,
etc. We also supplied a slip for the
U.S. Coast Guard to dock its boat and
a place for the public to view the


parade of boats. We had no control
over organizing the event, the judging
of the participants or their actions.
All in all, we thought the annual
boat parade had a great turnout and
everyone had fun. We would like to
thank the Coast Guard, the judges,
the coordinators and all the partici-
pants in making this year's boat
parade bigger and better then last
year's.

Parade story was a downer


EDITOR:
Re: Your front-page article,
"Parade gets racy but not the boats."
What a lousy article. I am sur-
prised at you, our local newspaper.
Never in the article did you describe
the large number of boats that entered
the parade this year and you never
even mentioned who won first place,
second place and so on. It just so hap-
pens our neighbors won best overall.
It's so un-seasonal not to have a
beautiful photograph on the front
page showing the winning boat. It
was beautiful. Barry and Bonnie
spent over three days decorating it.
Instead we get a "holiday" photo of
a milling machine tipping. That sure
gets everyone in the spirit.' .


All these holiday events going on
and not a lousy festive photo. There
were other holiday activities going
on that weekend, too. Not even a
story on them, needless to say a
photo. One of these events was
Winterfest on Big Pine Key.
As far as the racy boat article,
since when are children allowed in a
bar? Give me a break on your story
about Neptune's Love Palace. Would
the audience appreciate a couple of
gays kissing in front of their chil-
dren in the bar? Let's liven things
up.
Thanks for a stupid story on a
wonderful parade.

Flamingo is just one area of Everglades National Park being looked at as the park's
management plan is rewritten. National Park Service officials toured the area late


this week.

Everglades plan is still
EDITOR:
On behalf of our planning team, I want
to thank everyone for the valuable input we
received on the Everglades National Park
general management plan and preliminary
alternatives at the public meetings in June
and July.
At seven public meetings hosted by the
park staff and at numerous other stakehold-
er meetings we were invited to, we spoke to
more than 1,500 people and received more
than 1,000 comments. We take your sugges-
tions and concerns very seriously and have
been analyzing your comments since the
public review period ended a few months
ago.
Based on your input, we will be revising
the preliminary alternatives for the park's
marine areas to ensure the protection of the
resources and provide for the continued
public enjoyment of Everglades National
Park.
As I promised last summer, we will pro-
vide an additional opportunity for you to
review and comment on the revised prelimi-
nary alternatives for the marine areas of the
park prior to preparation of the draft general


evolving
management plan environmental impact
statement.
Our team.is continuing to work on revis-
ing the alternatives, and as part of the revi-
sion process, we have stepped back to gath-
er some additional data on a number of very
important issues. At this time, I anticipate
that the revised preliminary alternatives
newsletter will come out for public com-
ment in early 2008. As soon as a more pre-
cise date is known, it will be announced
through a press release and posted on the
National Park Service's planning Web site
(http://parkplanning.nps.gov) and the
park's Web site (www.nps.gov/ever).
Again, we appreciate all the valuable
input that you have provided. What is most
clear to me now is how much you care
about Everglades National Park and how
this special place is protected, restored, and
enjoyed. We encourage your continued par-
ticipation in this critical planning effort that
will shape the future of Everglades National
Park.

Removing fruit stand is fruity idea


EDITOR:
Dreamers and doers are being attacked
by the legion of darkness. Sounds like sci-
ence fiction, doesn't it? It's happening in
Marathon.
A group of volunteers has given us the
Incredible Fruit Stand every Saturday morn-
ing. All of the profits go to the Education
Coalition for Monroe County to help our
kids. The dreamers and doers are Rob,
Sandy, Ula, Joy, Michelle, Peter and Marie.
Park a truck loaded with wonderful fruits
and vegetables on public land between U.S.
1 bordering Crane Point. Out comes a cor-
nucopia of produce to sell to help the kids.
The Florida Keys Land and Sea Trust and
its unnamed board of directors are trying to
buy that little plot of land where the fruit
stand blooms for one day each week.'-


Crane Point's board has only one aim -
to ban the fruit stand from existence by pur-
chasing the land from the state Department
of Transportation. I guess Crane Point feels
it's an eyesore.
People come from all over Marathon to
buy the terrific vegetables, knowing that
their money is going directly to the
Education Coalition for Monroe County.
Sounds simple and straightforward, doesn't
it? We have people helping our young to
have a better and broader education from
the sale of the fruit.
I wish it were that simple. Crane Point
has made it much more complicated. You
don't know what you've got 'til it's gone.

outgoing chairman at
Tuesday's meeting. But he
might find more support from
the new chairman, County
Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro, a McPherson ally
who plans to support him in
seeking the seat for another
term.
The, question goes before
the County Commission when
it meets Wednesday at the
Marathon Government Center.
The meeting starts at 9 a.m.
"I think if he wants it, he
should be the guy to get it," Di
Gennaro said Friday. "Even
with all the controversy, I still
think that's a position for the


mayor of Key West."
But he doesn't have the seat
locked up. And another TDC
seat is to be filled at the com-
mission meeting, as well.
Commissioner George
Neugent said he might recom-
mend either of two Key West
city commissioners Teri
Johnston or Bill Verge to fill
McPherson's seat.
SHe might also nominate
either city commissioner for
the other empty seat -= now
vacant and also reserved for au
elected official from Key West.
Two Keys Energy Services
board members are gunning for
that seat, as well. County
Commissioner Dixie Spehar
nominated Lou Hernandez, the
board's chairman; County
Mayor Sonny McCoy nominat-
ed Peter Batty, vice chairman.
Neugent said he would
rather see his two candidates
fill both seats rather than those
put forth by the others. He said
Johnston and Verge represented
the outpouring of support for
Wheeler from some tourism
industry officials when-
McPherson tried to oust him.
But McCoy and Batty stuck


by their candidates.
McCoy said Batty, an
employee of the Spottswood
Co., is the right man for the
post, at least partly for having
religious convictions. He said
he wouldn't comment on
McPherson's seat until his term
is up, and was unaware that he
would seek the seat again.
Spehar said both candidates
she was aware of, Batty and
Hernandez, are good choices,
but that Hernandez is most
deserving of the job. She said
she would not oppose
McPherson, as no other Key
West city official had indicated
to her any interest.
If McPherson retains his
post, Wheeler, who received a
resounding showing of affec-
tion from some of the county's
tourism community Tuesday,
said he's none too worried
about his legacy.
"I try to stay as calm and as
cool as possible," he said. "I
want to keep the position for
sure, but if [a potential job-
deciding vote] would have
gone the wrong way, I knew it
wasn't about performance."

Transfer law goes to county


Airport hotels
also on agenda
for Wednesday
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

An ordinance intended to slow
the disappearance of mobile-
home parks in the Keys is up for
consideration Wednesday by the
Monroe County Commission.
The commission meets at 9
a.m. at the Marathon Govern-
- ment Center. The meeting will be
broadcast live on Comcast
Channel 76 and the Web.
The county Planning Com-
mission approved-the controver-
sial transfer ordinance, 3-2, in
October. It would allow the own-
ers of mobile-home parks to
transfer building rights off site in
exchange for retaining affordabil-
ity at the parks.
The ordinance took several
months to garner Planning
Commission approval, largely
because some commissioners
wanted to be sure building rights
stayed in the same region of the
Keys and prevent, for example,
preventing rights from Lower
Keys parks being transferred to
the Upper Keys.
This final ordinance, sched-
uled for the public-hearing por-
tion of the meeting at 5 p.m.,
would limit where the transfers
can occur, according to a memo
by the county's housing consult-
ant, Jerry Coleman.
A six-month moratorium on
mobile-home redevelopment
expired in November but,
Coleman noted, "There has been
no flood of trailer-park redevelop-

ing more than 700,000 acres

When nominated for the
award, .Peters patrolled _one _of.

Also on tap for Wednesday:
Approval to advertise a
request for proposals for hotels at
Florida Keys Marathon and Key
West International airports. The
County Commission has agreed
to explore the idea as a means of
raising money for the county and
to provide rooms for emergency
workers in case of a hurricane.
Renewal of an agreement
between the county and U.S.

on Boca Chica. The agreement,
in place since 1990, allows public
access to a popular natural beach
that abuts Naval Air Station Key

Plane goes down in bay


By PAMELA SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor


A Marathon pilot was hospi-
Stalized and Santa, Mrs. Claus and
an elf were shaken but unhurt fol-
lowing two plane crashes. in
waters off the Keys Thursday.
Dick Ramsay, 66, pilot of the
first plane to go down, was
admitted to Fishermen's Hospital
several hours after his plane lost


power and plunged into Florida
Bay off Marathon, according to
Kelly Reid, the hospital's risk
manager and security director.
"Mr. Ramsay was admitted
around 3:30 p.m. Thursday and
his wife has been staying with
him," Reid said.

According to Bobby Dube,
spokesman or the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, Ramsay and his
wife took off from Florida Keys
Marathon Airport around noon in
their single-engine Piper when
they issued a distress call.
Mitch Conover of the
Marathon Jet Center. said he
heard Ramsay's desperate radio
transmissions.
Ramsay "said the engine was
out and they weren't going to be
able to make it back to the air-
port," Conover said. "He said
they were going to put [the plane]
into the water. I imagine he was
afraid he'd hit houses or some-
thing if he tried to bring it back
in. We called the Sheriff's Office
then."
Dube said Ramsay's plane
went down in 8 to 10 feet of water.
"When [Ramsay] issued the
distress call, an FWC pilot scram-.
bled and got underway, and a [tel-

call also and got there right
away," Dube said. "The chopper

that claimed the life of Sheriff's

This is not the first time
Ramsay has survived a plane
crash.
According to a report from the
Bahamas Department of Civil
Aviation, Ramsay was piloting a
Cessna 205 that lost power dur-
ing a flight from Great Harbor,
Bahamas, to Kendall Tamiami
Executive Airport on Dec. 22,
2001 nearly six years to the
date of Thursday's crash.
The report states that while .
cruising at 4,500 feet shortly after
takeoff, the Cessna's engine start-
ed to sputter and the propeller
stopped. Ramsay was unable to
restart the engine, the report said,
and he radioed mayday before he
and a passenger ditched the plane
near the Bimini coast. Neither
was reported injured.
The Ramsay family declined
requests for comment.
Dube called the outcome of
the second crash of the day -
this one off Key Largo a mira-
cle as well.
He said that about 6 p.m., a
seaplane piloted by George
Wilson of Plantation Key was
carrying three passengers dressed
as Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus and an
elf, to appear at a party at
Snapper's Waterfront Restaurant,
mile marker 94.5.
"As they were landing in the
ocean about 200 yards offshore,
they hit a rogue wave that bent
the pontoon up and into the
prop," Dube said.
An FWC boat with two offi-
cers aboard happened to be near-
by. Dube said they sped to the
crash site and snatched the pilot
and passengers from the seaplane
before it sank.
"Santa didn't even: get'wet,"
Dube said.

New water rules start Jan. 15


Watering lawns
will be limited
to 1 day weekly
For the first time in the
agency's history, the South Florida
Water Management District on
Thursday declared an extreme dis-
trictwide water shortage directly
affecting more than 5 million
South Florida residents and thou-
sands of farms and businesses.
For the Keys, that means


Zappulla

wants job

hearing

Keynoter Staff

Former Monroe County
Budget Director Sal Zappulla
has challenged his October fir-
ing.
Now County Attorney
Suzanne Hutton has scheduled a
closed session with the County
Commission to come up with a
strategy to deal with that chal-
lenge.
Then-County Administrator
Tom Willi suspended Zappulla
without pay in August under
allegations of misconduct, insub-
ordination and unsatisfactory
work performance. Willi has
since been fired himself.
On Oct. 10,- a committee
headed by county Fire Chief
Wayne Hinnant confirmed the
allegations against Zappulla and
recommended his firing.
Now, under county policy,
Zappulla has a right to a hearing
before the county's Career
Service Board, comprising mem-
bers appointed by the Florida
Keys Aqueduct Authority, Keys
Energy Services, Florida Keys
Mosquito Control District and
County Commission.
The closed session with the
County Commission is set for
SWednesday at 2 p.m. during the
commission's regular monthly
meeting at the Marathon
Government Center.
The firm of Bishop and
Rosasco, which handles finances
for the city of Marathon and vil-
lage of Islamorada, is filling in as
county budget director.


watering your landscape, already
restricted to twice a week, will be
cut to once a week. Landscape
irrigation accounts for up to half
of all household water consump-
tion in Florida, the district says.
Thursday's "order represents
the most stringent landscape irri-
gation measures that this agency
has ever had to impose, but we
believe it will significantly help
to protect and stretch our region-
al water supplies," district board
Chairman Eric Buermann said.
Highlights of what are called
Modified Phase III water-use
rules, which will be enforced
beginning Jan. 15,include:
Residents and businesses of
Monroe and eight other counties
Limited to a one-day-per-week
landscape irrigation schedule,
with two watering windows.
Odd street addresses can irri-
gate lawns and landscapes
Monday between 4 and 8 a.m. or
4 and 8 p.m. Even street address-
es may irrigate Thursdays the
same hours.
Residents and businesses
with more than five acres have
expanded irrigation hours,


between midnight and 8 a.m. or 4
p.m. and 11:59 p.m. on their des-
ignated irrigation day.
Hand-watering with one
hose fitted with an automatic
shut-off nozzle is allowed for 10
minutes per day for landscape
stress relief and to prevent plant
die-off.
Low-volume irrigation,
including the use of drip and
microjet systems that apply water
directly to plant root zones, is not
restricted but should be voluntar-
ily reduced.
Additional watering days
and times will be allocated to
establish new lawns and land-
scapes.
No restrictions apply to
other outside water uses, such as
for car and boat washing, pres-
sure cleaning paved surfaces,
decorative fountains and water-
based recreation (e.g. swimming
pools, water slides).
+ Golf courses must reduce
their allocated water use by 45
percent.
The new mandatory restric-
tions apply to all water from tradi-
tional sources, including water
from public utilities, private wells,
canals, ponds and lakes. Users of


100-percent reclaimed water are
exempt but are encouraged to con-
serve water voluntarily.
Surface water and groundwa-
ter levels across much of the 16-
county Water Management
District remain unseasonably low
and already showed signs of
decline with the start of the dry
season in November.
The water level in Lake
Okeechobee, the source of water
for the Everglades and the pri-
mary backup water supply for 5
million South Floridians, is at its
lowest elevation ever recorded
for December.
At 10.16 feet above sea level

already- was so low that water
from the lake cannot be used to.

With a $3.9 million renovation
underway at Plantation Key
Yacht Harbor, the village of
Islamorada still isn't sure how to
pay for the project, and marina
residents question whether they
can afford a proposed hike in
dockage rates.
Thursday, the Islamorada
Village Council blasted the busi-
ness plan by Parks and
Recreation Director John Sutter,
saying it lacks details and
options.
"If this represents nine months
worth of work, I'm disappoint-
ed." Vice Mayor Cathi Hill said.
"I think this is inadequate. It's
incomplete. I reject the notion
that we don't have the staff to
complete this."
The plan recommends charg-
ing $24 a foot for monthly dock-
age to cover renovation costs.

Council members said they
want a range of rates for deep-
water slips, shallow-water slips,
and long-term and short-term
dockage. They also want details
like the number of slips reserved
for full-time residents.
Sutter said he didn't get spe-
cific instructions from the council
when it asked for the plan in
April. The council directed him
only to run the marina "like a
business" and set rates so the
marina pays for itself, he said.
Some council members said
that vague directions did lead to
holes in the plan.
"In all fairness to John,"
Councilman Don Achenberg
said, "once again this council's
changed courses midstream."
Councilman Michael
Reckwerdt said, "If I'm not
happy with the business plan,
some of the fault is my own. We
need to clarify what we're look-
ing for."
Mayor Dave Boemer said the
plan was successful in saying
how to cover costs but it didn't
justify the costs.
"We have taken a loan out and
started construction costs without
knowing how we're going to pay
for it," he said. "That's putting
the cart before the horse."
The council gave Sutter 60
days to return with more details
and research. It will then develop
a policy for Sutter to use in writ-
ing a new business plan.

includes restoring the facility to
its full 92-slip capacity, installing

DCA nixes waterfront plan FA oida

Definitions T ll addendum that would allow- FA Hoh
._11n construction of a hotel on the 'N4"f CAI-v &


and goals all
called vague
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

State objections to Monroe
County's plan to protect its
working waterfront came as no
surprise to most county offi-
cials after the ordinance
designed to do so failed to gain
approval from the South
Florida Regional Planning
Commission in October.
"I think the goal now is to
not lose our momentum in
sending up something accept-
able based on the recommenda-
tions by the [Department of
Community Affairs," said
County Commissioner George
Neugent, who has led the
charge to protect traditional
fishing industry in the Keys.
On Dec. 7, DCA kicked
back the county's working-
waterfront ordinance with a
long list of objections and rec-
ommendations to fix the prob-
lems. In a letter to Mayor
Sonny McCoy, DCA
Comprehensive Planning Chief
Mike McDaniel explained that
DCA supports the concept of
preserving the working water-
front but that "several concerns
must be addressed."
Like the Planning Council,
DCA's biggest objection had to
do with vague language in the
ordinance.
"Vague language,"
McDaniel wrote, "does not
provide meaningful and pre-
dictable standards or provide
meaningful guidelines for how
the activities will be imple-
mented...."
Among the specific objec-


tions:
+ The proposed ordinance
does not define phrases such as
"evolving community charac-
ter," "public values" and "rea-
sonable limits."
+ The policy calling for
regulatory incentives lacks
meaning because it does not
provide specific incentives, nor
does it outline criteria that
would "ensure continued com-
mercial, recreational and pub-
lic access."
+ The proposal does not
clearly define "traditional-mar-
itime activities."
It includes several "off-
-shore" islands that could be
home to marinas, and DCA
says the county's own policy
does not allow marinas on "off-
shore" islands. In addition, for
offshore islands, the county
cannot create new bridges,
causeways, paved roads or new
commercial marinas.
+ The ordinance does not
address "potential water-sup-
ply issues for the proposed
increase in density and intensi-
ty."
"The proposed objective
states the loss of working
waterfront in one geographic
area must be balanced by a
gain elsewhere." That, accord-
ing to the report, "could result
in an oversupply of working
waterfronts in one area of the
county and an undersupply in
other areas."
DCA recommends solving.
the problem by applying the
concept of no net loss within
regional areas of the Keys
rather than countywide.
The County Commission
approved the waterfront
preservation ordinance in.
September with a last-minute


waterfront where cu n-


ing would not allow one.
In DCA's objections, that
amendment conflicts with the
county's land-use plan, which
prohibits new transient resi-
dential units including hotel
and motel rooms. A new hotel
would also be higher density
than the zoning on the working
waterfront allows.
The county has been -work-
ing for nearly three years to
come up with a plan to retain
public access to the waterfront
and ensure commercial fishing
is not made extinct by high-end
condos.

Divers Direct
is opening at
old Gary's Pub
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Local dive operators plead-
ed with the Marathon City
Council Tuesday to prevent
Holiday Diver Inc. from taking
over the long-defunct Gary's
Pub & Billiards near mile
marker 50'in Marathon.
Those cries fell on deaf ears
as the council voted unani-
mously to grant the business,
which will be called Divers
Direct, a conditional use per-
mit for the property.
Representatives from
Tilden's Scuba Center and
Hall's Diving Center, among
others, voiced numerous con-
cerns to council.
Hall's owner Bob.Raymond
said he feels the mom-and-pop
diving centers in Marathon
will not be able to compete
with the new store.
"If this project is allowed to
go forward, you're going to put
these dive centers out of busi-
ness. These people will end up
suffering," he said, reading off
the names of numerous
Marathon dive shops.
Wendy Hall, who along
with her husband runs a


Tilden's Scuba Center on Duck
Key, had tears in her eyes as
she addressed the council. She
said she feels Divers Direct,
which has numerous outlets,
sells faulty equipment that
could potentially put a diver at
risk.
"I have been on the boat
with divers who have critical
malfunctions of their gear,"
she said. "Where did they pur-
chase'it? Nine times out of 10
it came from Divers Direct.
They do ndt have staff quali-
fied to set this gear up for a
customer and don't go through
it before they hand it to them.
On a number of occasions,
people have come close to
death."
Several residents living
behind the Gary's building
spoke, with their only objec-
tion to the project being lack of
a fence dividing their proper-
ties. The company has pledged
to build one.
One speaker addressed the
issue of work being done on
the building prior to the com-
pany receiving a permit to do
business.
Building Official Bob
Welch said the owner of the
building has the right to main-
tain the building "even though
someone else may be paying
for it."

Holiday Divers Chief
Executive Officer Kevin
Senecal attended Tuesday but
spoke only briefly and was not
questioned by the council.
The dive operators' com-
plaints were likely made in
vain, however, as City
Attorney Jimmy Morales
pointed out to the council that
"economic competition is not
an appropriate argument
against land use."
Several council members
echoed that sentiment and said
legally there is no reason to
deny the application.
"This is one of those diffi-
cult decisions because I under-
stand small business. We also
have a legal obligation to pro-
tect everyone's property
rights," Councilman Mike
Cinque said. "I find no reason I
can personally deny this."
"We only have the code to
go by and staff has reviewed it
thoroughly and they are com-
pliant. We would be out of line
to deny this request," Council-
woman Marilyn Tempest said.

Day off


causes


dissent

By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

At the risk of being tagged a
complete Scrooge, Monroe
County Commissioner George
Neugent doesn't think county
staffers should all be given
Christmas Eve off.
"It sends the message to the
voters and the taxpayers that we
don't care," he told the Keynoter.
"To me, it's an irresponsible
act."
County Mayor Sonny McCoy
recommends the entire county
staff be given Dec. 24, a
Monday, a paid day off.
S"Evidence would dictate that
if you try to make everybody
come in, you don't get the pro-
ductivity anyway," McCoy said.
"And if you have kids, you're
preparing for Christmas and
your mind is elsewhere."
"I'm sympathetic that the kids
are out of school and it's tough
on mom and dad," Neugent said.
"But the large majority of our
employees have vacation and
sick days that they could sched-
ule to take the day off."
The added day off led to- a
heated conversation -with the
County Commission last year, as
well, because the additional hol-
iday costs the county an estimat-
ed $100,000, according to Com-
missioner Sylvia Murphy. In
2006 the commission voted 3-2
to give employees the day after
Christmas off.
Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro voted in favor of it last
year and says he's amenable
again this year.
Last year Murphy, who was
unavailable for comment Friday,
argued that the estimated
$100,000 expense was unneces-
sary.
There's a good chance the
vote will go in favor of the
employees, though Spehar and
McCoy were unavailable for
comment. Spehar. has often been
the one to suggest additional hol-
idays for employees in the past.
The issue will be decided
Wednesday at the regular County
Commission meeting, which
begins at 9 a.m. at the Marathon
Government Center ,-

Key West Police Officer

sued the city of Key West and
Police Chief Bill Maudlin, alleg-
ing he was retaliated against for
refusing to destroy evidence of

pect on Simonton Street, the suit

Affairs, the suit says.
It says Klosowski refused to
destroy the video because such
destruction could be charged as
tampering with evidence, a third-
degree felony.
Mauldin and Klosowsi's attor-
ney Michael Barnes declined
comment.
The complaint claims 13 dif-
ferent counts of retaliation,
among them:
Klosowski was "immedi-
ately reassigned without explana-
tion from the job he had held for
more than two years." He was
assigned to a "high-threat drug
area without proper drug enforce-
ment preparation, area orienta-
tion or training."
Rodriguez told fellow offi-

and accused him of secretly
recording conversations.
Klosowski was denied pay.

Latest bridge-repair estimate: $8.7M


And few riders
results in taxi,
ceasing service
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The tab to refurbish the
dilapidated Boot Key Bridge in
Marathon is seemingly rising
by the minute.
At Tuesday's regular council
meeting, Florida Department of
Transportation bridge engineer
Frank Guyamier informed the
City Council the latest estimate
for repairs now stands at $8.7
million.
The figure was reported to
be $5 million in August and had
increased to a minimum of $7
million by September.
Traffic of any kind even
pedestrian to the island was
halted permanently Dec. 3 after


city officials received a letter
from Guyamier declaring the
bridge a safety hazard and call-
ing for its immediate closure.
"The city should be aware of
this dangerous condition affect-
ing the motoring public and
take the necessary steps to cor-
rect the deficiencies,"
Guyamier wrote.
Twenty-five commercial
fishermen work on the island,
as well as employees of Keys
Radio Group, which is head-
quartered on the island. City
staff was essentially at a loss
with how to accommodate
those workers.
A scheduled water-taxi serv-
ice to the island was being pro-
vided by Smorgasboat owner
Chris Boyle at a city cost of
$150 per day, but City Manager
Mike Puto said it has not been
well received. Deputy City


Manager C.J. Geotis said "there
were 16 people that took advan-
tage of the trips to the island"
from Dec. 3 to 11.

The city is
awaiting
results from an
appraisal of
Boot Key's
value before
determining
any long-term
solutions.

The council, based on staff
recommendation, voted to con-
tinue providing the trips
through the end of the week


before discontinuing the serv-
ice.
"We're doing everything we
can to help out but they're not
very receptive out there. Chris
has done a good job trying to
work with us, the sad thing is
the people don't need the
abuse," Puto said. "At the pres-
ent time, I don't really have any
major answers."
Puto said barricades to the
island were recently thrown
into the harbor and had to be
retrieved and put back in place.
Mark Butler, a commercial
fisherman out of Boot Key,
pleaded with the council to
open the bridge for "one more
day" so he can take materials
from an expected shipment out
to the island. Boyle does not
carry heavy equipment on his
boats.
"Obviously, my life has
changed dramatically in the last
couple weeks. [Boyle] wants to


run [the ferry service] on
banker's hours ... Fishermen
don't work banker's hours,"
Butler said. Geotis said he met
with Butler after the meeting to
address his concerns.
The city is awaiting results
from an appraisal of Boot Key's
value before determining any
long-term solutions.
The appraisal will provide
the island's three parcel owners
a better understanding of the
costs they might incur for-the
bridge's repair and will give the
city an idea of its liability in the
event the council decides to
pursue another option with the
bridge.
The possibility exists to sim-
ply remove the draw portion of
the bridge at a cost of
$800,000, or to remove the
entire span for $2 million.
Geotis said Tuesday the
appraisal would likely be com-
pleted within 45 days.

City allows permit deferrals


Council also
OKs payments
in lieu of lots
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon City Council,
meeting in regular session
Tuesday, took the following
actions:
+ Unanimously approved an
ordinance amending the city's
land development regulations to
allow for the deferral of building-
permit allocations.
Planning Director Clarence
Feagin said applicants would be
allowed to defer an application
for up to three consecutive
trimesters, which constitutes a
calendar year. The allocation will
be recycled back into the city's
pool after that time.
The council also unanimously
approved a resolution establish-
ing a fee paid in lieu of dedicating
a lot to gain points in the city's
permit allocation system.
Feagin told the council a
$40,000 payment will net an
applicant two points in the sys-
tem, while a $60,000 payment to
the city's affordable housing trust
fund will be worth five points.
Approved a resolution
granting Old Town Key West
Development owner Ed Swift a
99-year lease for its 2.73-acre
parcel on 104th Street. Rent for
the parcel will be $10 per year.
Swift was recently awarded a
bid to construct 40 two- and


three-bedroom workforce houses
on the property.
Unanimously approved an
ordinance proposed by city
Building Official Bob Welch
granting him the ability to allow a
one-time, 180-day administrative
extension to permit allocation
holders.
"Some people are having
financial hardships and this way
they won't have to be brought up
before council to hear each one,"
Welch said.
+ Approved two resolutions
accepting a total of $488,800 in
grant funding from the South
Florida Water Management
District for the Sombrero Beach
Road Reclaimed Water Project.
City Manager.Mike Puto said
previously the district informed
the city it had extra money in its
budget to contribute because dis-
trict officials say they "appreciate
and like the projects we've been
doing."
+ Recognized and honored
the accomplishments of Marathon
High School's fall sports athletes.
Senior golfer Jay Hegland was
recognized for his advancement
to a regional tournament, while
seventh-grade cross-country star
Naomi Valerdi was recognized
for winning her regional meet.
The girls cross-country team
placed third overall at the region-
al tournament and advanced to
the state tournament for the first
time in the school's history.

city Beautification Committee

Board delays action on supplements


BY KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.com


The Monroe County School
Board has voted to keep a low-
cost insurance perk for admin-
istrators and postponed taking
action against highly criticized
administrative supplements.
Tuesday, the board took up
the lengthy list of 619 employ-
ees who will earn more than


$1.4 million in supplemental
pay this year but no vote was
taken.
Supplemental pay has been
criticized by some as exces-
, sive. Two independent studies
conducted the past two years,
one by Evergreen Solutions
and another by the
Management Advisory Group,


recommended eliminating all
Supplements and rolling them
Into employee salaries.
While the Keys school dis-
trict is in line with other dis-
tricts in the amount paid in
supplements for jobs like
coaching or leading after-
school activities, it far exceeds
those districts in the amount
paid in supplements to admin-
istrators and support person-

he plans to meet with adminis-
trators from the Nassau and
Okaloosa school districts to
review their compensation sys-
tems.
Deputy Superintendent
Frances St. James said district
personnel review each supple-
ment to make sure it's justi-
fied.
She said in the past, job
descriptions for supplements
were vague, but that in recent
years they've become more
specific. She also said that
paying for services piecemeal
by awarding supplements often
saves the school district from
having to hire a new employee.
But board members agreed
that a significant change in the
system is necessary.
Board member Debra
Walker said she hopes "that the
goal would be to roll in any-
thing that can be added to the
job description on a permanent
basis," and that the only sup-
plements that should be kept
would be for term-limited jobs
like coaching.
The board also agreed that
the complexity of the supple-
mental system makes it impos-
sible to write one rule for han-
dling all supplements.
Instead, board members will
meet individually with
Superintendent Randy
Acevedo to discuss supple-
ments they see as problematic,
and will discuss a course of
action Jan. 9.

Insurance inequities
The board also decided
Tuesday that administrators
with the district will continue to
receive health insurance at a
lower cost than teachers, even if
they earn a promotion.
In September, a $140,000
report from consultant the
Management Advisory Group
recommended eliminating a
long-standing difference in the
cost of health insurance
between administrators and
other district employees, but the
board voted 4-1 to keep the ben-
efit for 59 employees, most of
them administrators.
The inequity originated years
ago, when administrators voted
to receive free health insurance
instead of a raise that was given
to teachers. Administrators have
paid only for the yearly cost
increase in their insurance plans
since 2001.

Dear Friends of all the Monroe Count\ Libraries:
The Count\ is considering cutting days and hours at the Marathon. Islamorada and Ke\ Largo libraries which will
both eliminate librarian positions and exacerbate the latent hostility in the Middle and Upper Keys towards the Key
West powers that control these islands. It is the position of the Friends of the Marathon Library that the positions
and funds previously\ cut from the 2008 Monroe County Libraries' budget should be restored and no further cuts
should be made. Libraries form the backbone of civilized discourse and should be sacrosanct. The bean counters
can find other count\ expenses to cut.
Please contact the count\ commissioners to express your opposition to this shortsighted proposal. You should
also come to the county commission meeting on December 19th at the Marathon Government Center to speak per-
sonally to the individual commissioners.
We wish \ou a happy and health\ holiday\ season!

Competitive
grant is key
to the proposal
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.coi
Instead of providing work-
force housing at Poinciana
Housing, Key West Housing
Coordinator Paul Clayton,
Mayor Morgan McPherson and
the Housing Authority, have
their eyes on Roosevelt Sands
property for a similar project.
Roosevelt Sands, at the end
of Truman Avenue, is "one of
the most deteriorated of all the
housing communities,"
McPherson said. He proposes a
new day-care center for the site
to sit alongside the Conch-style
homes.
But it depends on whether


they receive a $5 million grant
from the state Community
Workforce Housing Innovation
Program). And competition for
the money is steep.
The city will submit its
application by the Jan. 29
deadline. The grant winner will
be announced within four
months, McPherson said.
According to Clayton, the
housing currently at Roosevelt
Sands would be torn down
after new housing is built, so
no residents would be dis-
placed.
While there is no firm num-
ber of how many units could go
on the site, officials say the
potential Bahama Village proj-
ect could place already existing
residents in new homes and
provide more Keys families
with affordable units.


The conditions of CWHIP
as read in a Florida Housing
Finance Corp. document: "At
least 50 percent of the afford-
able housing units built using

According to McPherson,
changing the location doesn't
rule out the possibility of a

Suspended officer sues cop shop


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Suspended Key West Police
Officer Tom Neary on Thursday
sued the city, Police Chief Bill
Maudlin and other personnel
alleging defamation, conspiracy
to defame and a violation of his
rights while being interrogated.
On Oct. 26, police questioned
Neary, a Big Pine Key resident,
about whether he was imperson-
ating a federal agent and whether
he owned a stolen Smith and
Wesson gun purchased from his
brother while Neary lived in New
Jersey. The gun charge turned out
not to be true.
In the suit filed in Monroe
County Circuit Court, he's
demanding a minimum of $6 mil-
lion in compensatory and puni-
tive damages.
The FBI earlier this week
revealed that its investigation into
whether Neary was falsely posing
as a federal agent resulted in the
U.S. Attorney's Office declining
to prosecute.
But that's not all the FBI said.
"We investigated [Neary's]
claims of corruption, and they
were unsubstantiated," FBI


spokeswoman Judy Orihuela
said.
Among allegations listed in
the suit:
Neary claims he witnessed
a female officer cheating on a
computer training course. He
alleges she logged on to numer-
ous computers simultaneously
and took exams for officers not
present.
He claims the department's
evidence scale isn't calibrated
properly.
He claims falsification of
weapons qualification scoring in
spring 2006, when he says a
female officer failed a mandatory
shooting drill but a police captain
changed her score.
Maudlin declined comment
but said in the past the FBI came
to the department with cause for
an investigation.
Attorney Michael Barnes,
who has continually voiced his
client Neary's allegations through
the media, released more infor-
mation about Neary's interroga-
tion, investigation and personal
life to city officials this week.
The thick packet includes


some information that overlaps
with allegations listed in the suit.
Barnes has reached out to
numerous local media outlets,
even including Neary in an inter-
view on a morning radio show,
where he answered questions
from host Bill Becker.
As a police officer, Neary is
restricted in speaking with the
media without the permission of
his supervisor, which is Mauldin,
according to department policy.
In a packet given to city com-
missioners and Mayor Morgan
McPherson, Barnes lays out what
he says are violations of Florida
law in the Neary investigation.
Some of the 22 claims listed by
Barnes:
The Police Department did
not inform Neary of the nature of
the investigation.
Neary was interviewed "for
an unreasonably long period of
time," which was three hours,
Barnes wrote.
+ Neary asked if the interro-
gation would be recorded and
was told it wasn't.
State law mandates that
interrogators make no promise of
reward for offering information.
Neary says police promised the


allegations would be dropped if
he resigned.
Barnes claims the police
leaked information about the
ongoing investigation, though
spokeswoman Christie Phillips
only sent out a press release
directing all inquiries to the FBI.
Phillips is also named in the
suit, along with investigator Dave
Black and Jim Benkoczy.

Vote delay possible


BY KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.com

The Monroe County School
Board is pressing forward with
a long-term plan that could
potentially close the historic
Glynn Archer Elementary
School in Key West.
But board members say an
anticipated Jan. 8 vote on the
issue will likely be delayed.
At a meeting Tuesday, the
board discussed the future of
several Key West schools with
representatives from the city of
Key West, Naval Air Station
Key West near Sigsbee School
and Florida Keys Community
College.
The discussion focused on
recommendations made at a
Dec. 4 meeting, when a com-
mittee of parents, educators
and community members-
asked the board to develop a
plan to renovate Sigsbee
Elementary as a kindergarten-
through-eighth-grade facility
and permanently close Glynn
Archer.


The committee suggested
keeping Horace O'Bryant as a
middle school, but transferring
about 300 Horace O'Bryant
students to the K-8 facility at
Sigsbee.
The board was expected to
vote Jan. 8 on a plan to close a
Key West school, but some
board members say a slew of
complex issues, including lack
of public input, problems with
access to Sigsbee and a new
location for administrative
offices, makes a January vote
unlikely.
According to the committee,
closing Glynn Archer is the
most cost-effective option for
the School District, but an
analysis from district staff said
it would leave Key West with-
out an elementary school on
the west side of the island, a
situation that activist Veronica
Stafford says would create a
huge problem for residents of
nearby Bahama Village.

Sanctuary
and the TDC
ranked high
The Florida Keys National
Marine Sanctuary and the
Monroe County Tourist
Development Council are fea-
tured in the December issue of
Islands magazine detailing 100
leaders in responsible tourism
that ensure island destinations
"remain environmentally and cul-
turally sound for future genera-
tions."
"The 100 people, places and
things that made our [Blue List]
are the very best of the worlds of
islands responsible tourism,"
Islands Editor Ty Sawyer wrote.
"They are models that are work-
ing. And they are role models that
should be followed."
For the sanctuary, writer
Suzanne Gerber commented, "To
encourage healthy human-dol-
phin interactions in the wild, the
Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary has teamed up with the
government and private business
partners to launch its Dolphin


SMART program .... This is the
kind of conservation policy typi-
cal of the 17-year-old marine
sanctuary, whose mission is to
protect the Florida Keys' coral
reef, North America's only liv-
ing-coral barrier reef."
About the TDC, Gerber
wrote: "In the Florida Keys, the
25-year-old Monroe. County
Tourism Development Council
works to sustain the character of
this nearly 1,700-island archipel-
ago .... More recent projects
include renovation of an 1891
Custom House to create the Key
West Museum of Art & History,
the creation of three artificial


reefs. that provide new habitats
for marine life and the 2006
opening of the Florida Keys Eco-
Discovery Center where you can
learn about the Keys' fragile
environment."
"For the Florida Keys to have
two spots on the Blue List is
demonstrative of the dedication
of all public and private stake-
holders involved in the sanctuary
program, as well as the sustain-
able tourism efforts the TDC has
fostered for so many years," TDC
Director Harold Wheeler said.
The two Keys entities are the
only from Florida recognized in
the list.

Milligan tries

Associated Press

Florida chose an interim direc-

invests local government money,
hoping to boost the confidence of
local government investors, after
nearly half the fund's assets were
withdrawn in a panic over mort-
gage-backed securities.
The trustees of the State

mously picked Bob Milligan, a
widely respected figure in state
politics who served as Florida's
comptroller and was its insurance
consumer advocate before taking
the fund job.
The local government invest-
ment fund was hit by a multibil-
lion-dollar run by investors last
month after they discovered it
contained downgraded mort-
gage-backed securities.
Milligan said he would hold a
meeting with fund investors in
early January to deal with their
concerns.
"We will come-to grips with
what we need to do to get this
operation on the right track,"
Milligan said.
The state's pool is one of a
wide ranging number of funds to
be affected by a crisis in global
credit markets. Investors have
faced the prospect of not being
repaid on mortgage-backed secu-
rities, due to rising mortgage
defaults.
The state board, which admin-
isters a range of Florida invest-
ments, is trying to find out how
the pool invested in mortgage-


backed securities that were
downgraded by ratings compa-
nies. Those downgrades led local
governments to withdraw more
than $13 billion in a run that was
stopped by freezing the account
for a week.
Milligan, 74, replaces former
Executive Director Coleman
Stipanovich, who resigned last
week amid questions about the
pool. The fund's assets dropped
to $14 billion from more than
$27 billion by the time they were
frozen.
Still, redemptions from the
fund have slowed considerably
since $1.2 billion was withdrawn
on the first day it was reopened
last week, according to officials
from BlackRock Inc., a New
York investment" firm recently
hired to manage the fund.
But several local government
officials are concerned about new
potential liquidity problems,
because BlackRock officials said
the state board trustees directed it
to plow interest earned by the
cities in November back into a
walled-off part of the pool that
continues to hold questionable
investments.
On Tuesday, local govern-
ments withdrew $84.3 million
from the still-accessible part of
the pool, with about $8.9 million
put in. Funds totaled just under
$10.2 billion Tuesday in the part
of the account that remains open
to investors;
Chief Financial Officer Alex
Sink said the state board's audit
committee will look for answers
to several questions, including
why the state's investment poli-
cies allow for holdings that would
so spook local governments.

benefit with a rate reduction on
lines of credit applied to energy-
efficient-minded improvements.
"Rather than offering a single
product, we knew a multi-dimen-
sional solution would provide a
greater benefit overall," said R.J.
Albritton, senior vice president.


"People are in different situa-
tions; some own, some are in the

Safety



first

Don't let avoidable tragedy
spoil the holidays


W while this is the time of
year when "fun" and
S"celebration" are the
key words, you should also add
the word "safety" to your vocab-
ulary.
According to the Key West
Police Department, the U.S. Fire
Administration reports holiday
fires injure 2,600 people and
cause more than $930 million in
damage each year.
So to help ensure everyone
has a safe and happy holiday, the
Key West Fire Department sug-
gests reviewing
the following
safety tips: Holida
Choose a Holida
freshly cut tree injure
with green, hard
to pull back nee- people
dles, which
means the tree is cause
freshly cut. han $
Needles that fall than
off easily indi- million
cate the tree is
probably dried dama
out and thus
poses a fire haz- each y
ard.
Do not


position the tree near a heat -
source. A burning live tree can
quickly fill a room with fire and
deadly gases.
Always keep the tree stand
filled with water.
Choose artificial trees and
other decorations made of flame-
resistant or non-combustible
materials.
Place candles away from
flammable materials and out of.
reach of small children.
+ Carefully follow the manu-
facturer's instructions for
installing and maintaining lights.
Inspect strands of lights
and replace damaged parts
before using lights. Always
unplug lights before replacing
blown out bulbs or fuses.
Don't overload extension
cords and don't mount lights


with clips or nails in a manner
that will damage the cord's wire
insulation.
Never leave lights on or
candles burning, especially
around small children and pets.
Remember to extinguish
candles and fires and turn off all
light strings and other decora-
tions before leaving the house or
going to bed.
At the end of the holidays,
when disposing of your tree, do
not bum it. Dispose of your tree
through a community recycling


y fires
2,600
Sand

in
ge


or pick-up serv-
ice.
Make sure
your smoke
alarms are work-
ing and replace
old batteries.
Smoke alarms
should be
installed on
every floor of
home and
checked month-
ly.


As for the
ear. trees themselves:
Trees cut
early in the sea-
son run a greater risk of drying
up before the holidays are over,
making them more dangerous if
left decorated with electrical
lights.
It is important to keep your
tree well hydrated to avoid post-
holiday fire hazards. The stand -
should hold at least one gallon
of water. A 6-foot tree will use
approximately one gallon of
water every two days. Don't for-
get to check the water level
every day.
A tree should be removed
from the home if it becomes dry
and begins shedding needles.
Remove the tree as soon as
possible after Christmas.
Dispose of all paper products
and boxes at once. Do not allow
them to accumulate under the
tree.

Key West goes to Art Basel


he Kent Gallery is on
Duval Street in Key West,
but set up camp at Art '
Basel in Miami for this year's
visual arts extravaganza.
Art Basel is the international
cutting-edge art show that turns
Miami Beach into a temporary
MOMA (museum of modem art,
for those who don't know the
acronyms).
It is a sister festival to the Art
Basel exhibit in Basel, Switzerland
("on the River Rhine where
Switzerland, France and Germany
meet"), that The New York Times
called "the Olympics of the art
world." Next June will be the 39th
Basel show in the Alps.
That Old World Basel popu-
lates its almost 9-square-mile
comer df the world with 165,529
Swiss. With a documented histo-
ry back to 44 B.C., Basel had the
only bridge across the Rhine for
centuries.
The University of Basel,
endowed in 1459 by Pope Pius
II, included Erasmus of
Rotterdam, Paracelsus and
Hans Holbein the Younger
among its faculty. Currently the
city is heavily invested in the
chemical and pharmaceutical
industries and is home to a few
of the well-known Swiss banks.
From their aerie high above
Europe, they cleverly planned a
winter event in sunny Florida
that the official Art Basel Web
site unselfconsciously calls "the


e ~most
important
art show in
Sthe United
States."
.;, The
P. Kent
Gallery,
while not
S listed as an
official
Exhibitor in
Miami,
Judi Bradford secured a
stylish
exhibition arena at the Paradeisos
Center in the Wynwood Art
District for its artists.-
Claire and David Kent trans-
formed the 4,500 square feet into
a showcase for eight artists in
five different mediums. Among
the eight is Key Wester Michel
Delgado.
Delgado's raw, expressive
characterizations of life are nar-
ratives creatively explained.


Delgado's bio includes 18
months in a Paris jail for selling
hashish and a habit for heroin in
between the apprenticeships and
mentors who furthered his art
career from painted bags in
Senegal to a road trip ending at
the end of the road Key West.
The mid-range artists' world
of festival and fairs and group
shows changed for Delgado to
serious art when the Kent Gallery
featured a solo show of his work,
"Sweet Venom," in 2004.
That same year, he won the
Visual and Media Artists
Fellowship from the South
Florida Cultural Consortium
and had his first museum show
at the Miami Art Museum.
His images were on the cov-
ers of the Key West Symphony
and the Literary Seminar pro-
grams and he completed a 14-
feet-by-8-feet painting on cement
board installed at the San Carlos
Institute on Duval Street.

Cast a ballot for 'Best Man'


The Waterfront
draws out best,
worst of elections
T he nomination of a presi-
dential candidate is loom-
ing. Sharp battle lines are
drawn.
Duking it out are a witty,
womanizing liberal and an ambi-
tious, Southern senator. Each has
explosive dirt on the other and is
threatening to use it "for the
good of the country."
Sound familiar? It's actually
the plot of Gore Vidal's 1960
play "The Best Man," a tale of
the backstabbing world of a
presidential nomination.
The Waterfront Playhouse at
Mallory Square in Key West
kicks off its 68th season with
this fresh, funny and relevant
story of political intrigue.


Directed by Waterfront Artistic
Director Danny Weathers, "The
Best Man" features a cast of 16
Key West actors. Opening night is
Wednesday and includes a post-
show reception sponsored by
Nikki McCausland and Bill

Opening night
is Wednesday.

Bradford and catered by Great
Events. The play runs through
Jan. 12 with all performances at 8
p.m.
"The Best Man" follows
William Russell, an ex-secretary
of state who is a scholarly, high-
minded candidate leading in the
polls. Beloved by eggheads, he is
viewed by others with suspicion.


The other candidate is Joe
Cantwell, a hard-driving, dirty
fighter who will let nothing
stand in the way of his ambi-
tions. Cantwell threatens to go
public with some damaging
information on Russell's mental
history unless Russell drops out
of the'race. However, Russell's
camp finds some explosive dirt
of the "don't ask, don't tell"
variety on Cantwell, and the
tables are turned.
The cast includes Michael
Mulligan (Russell) and David
Black (Cantwell) as the two bat-
tling candidates. Chris Stone and
Mary Falconer play their respec-
tive wives, each with their own
approach to the fight.
For tickets to "The Best
Man" (or season subscriptions),
call the box office at 294-5015
or go to www.waterfrontplay

Watch 'Bark!'


New musical
explores lives
of lovable pups
o, canine lovers, have you
ever wondered what dogs
really think?
Then get your two legs in
motion and head to the Red
Barn Theatre in Key West for
one of the most charming
shows imaginable about those
fabulous four-legged critters.
The musical "Bark!" opens
the Red Barn's 2007-08 sub-
scription season Tuesday at 8
p.m. It runs Tuesdays through
Saturday until Jan. 26.
"Bark!" is the creation of
noted composer, arranger and
pianist David Troy Francis,

who will serve as musical
director and accompanist for
the Red Barn show. The lyrics
are by Gavin Geoffrey Dillard
and "Naked Boys Singing" cre-
ator Robert Scrock. Additional
lyrics and dialogue have been
contributed by Jonathan Heath,
Danny Lukic and Mark
Winkler.
"Bark!" explores the lives
.of six very different dogs as
they sing, dance and growl
about all things canine. Thd
original score by Francis is a
mixed breed of blues, salsa,
country and torch songs as
each pooch recounts its person-
al story.
"Bark!" basically sings vol-
umes about these harmonizing
hounds' desire to be loved and
united with family. The sextet
playing the lovable pups in a
dog park proves that, indeed,
dog is man's best friend.
Phil Tabb portrays Rocks, a
gangly greyhound mix longing
to have a best friend. King, a
retired K-9 Shepherd police
dog, is played by John Wells
and director Joy Hawkins does
double duty appearing as Boo,
a shaggy English sheepdog
from a puppy mill.
-Bruce Moore is cast as Sam,
a streetwise Boston terrier and
pit-bull mix. Kristi Davis will
be seen as the sexy and highly
cultured standard French poo-
dle Chanel and singer Laurie
Breakwell fills up the kennel
as an aging golden
retriever/Irish setter mix named
Golde.
Red Barn Artistic Director
Joy Hawkins is staging the dog
show and the choreographer is
the Coffee Mill's Penny Leto.
Costumes are by Carmen
Rodriquez, lighting designer is
Armondo Lodgiani and the sets
are designed by Gary
McDonald.
An opening-night party to
meet the cast and crew hosted
by the Bottle Cap Bar &
Lounge and Dreyfuss Deli at
1128 Simonton St. immediately
follows the Tuesday premiere.

fish identification home-study
course.
"Reef Fish Identification: A
Beginning Course" is a DVD
course teaching divers and
snorkelers to identify reef fish


found in the Caribbean, Florida'
and Bahamas.
It also trains students to con-
duct fish surveys for conserva-
tion purposes, including identi-
fying 50 commonly sighted
species found in the tropical
western Atlantic. A waterproof
fish identification booklet,
underwater survey slate and
REEF survey materials are
included. The course is available
online at www.reef.org and dive
retailers and resorts.


The one-hour DVD is a joint
production between New World
Publications and ReefNet.
Proceeds from sales will help
support the REEF Volunteer

citizen science program that
enlists volunteer divers and
snorkelers to conduct marine-
life surveys that help scientists
make informed resource man-
agement decisions.
To find out more, call REEF
Executive Director Leda
Cunningham at 852-0030 or

odds of surviving the disease.
New research suggests that
for every 11 pounds a woman

with breast cancer, the chances
of it proving fatal go up 14 per-

strongest evidence yet that con-
trolling weight a good idea
anytime in life may be espe-
cially important after breast
cancer.
"There was a significant
trend between increasing levels
of weight gain and higher mor-
tality," said Hazel Nichols, a
doctoral student at Johns
Hopkins Bloomberg School of
Public Health. "Lifestyle fac-
tors, the things you incorporate
after a breast cancer diagnosis
such as diet and exercise, do
show potential to influence sur-
vival."
Nichols led the study and
reported results Friday at an
American Association for
Cancer Research conference in
Philadelphia.
Researchers started with
4,021 women in Wisconsin,
Massachusetts and New
Hampshire who had been diag-
nosed with breast cancer from

1988 to 2001. They gave infor-
mation on their height, weight,
family history and breast cancer
risk factors during telephone
interviews.
From 1998 to 2001, all sur-
vivors were mailed surveys ask-
ing for updated information on
these factors and lifestyle habits
like exercise and diet.
After an average of six years
of followup since their diag-
noses, 121 breast cancer deaths
and 428 non-breast cancer
deaths had occurred. For every
11 pounds (5 kilograms) of
weight gain after diagnosis, the
risk of death from breast cancer


or other causes increased by 14
percent.
The link remained even after
researchers took into account
differences in age, menopausal
status, smoking and the stage of
disease when the women were
diagnosed.
For women classified as
obese by body mass index a
measure of weight.and height
- the death risk was more than
twice that of women with a nor-
mal body weight.
The study was paid for by
the Susan G. Komen for the
Cure Breast Cancer Foundation.

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 nere.
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 rcal
business owners than they do
from non-locally owned busi-
nesses.
This Holiday Season
Support Marathon's
Local Businesses.

Lady Fins jump


on Warriors


Soccer team
is now 8-3-1
after 5-0 win
By RYAN McCARTHY
mccarthy@keynoter.com


The field was less than desir-
able and the referees didn't show
up, but Marathon High School
girls soccer coach Dennis Doll
said the team was still able to
keep its composure, winning 5-0
at Westwood Christian School
Thursday.
Doll said eventually a handful
of spectators with experience
volunteered for the job and the
game was able to get underway.
"The only trouble is we sat for
a good half hour and that made us
a bit rusty," Doll said. "Their field
is terrible. It dips and you start
going downhill; there's weeds and
the ball takes ftnny bounces."
Marathon defeated the
Warriors by the same score earlier
this season, but Doll said he felt
the Dolphins played down to the
competition this time around. He
said the team was a bit distracted
and lost focus early in the game
after waiting around for it to start.
The Dolphins (8-3-1) did net
four first-half goals, though, the
first of which came on a break-
away by seventh-grader Jasmine
DeLacruse.
DeLacruse then assisted on
the Dolphins' next goal, setting
up sophomore Megan McKenna


with a crossing ball to give the
team a 2-0 lead.
, Marina Kay Wiatt scored the
next Marathon goal.
"It was being bobbled around
in front of the goal and she hit it
in," Doll said.
Seventh-grader Taylor
Konrath finished off the first-half
scoring for the Dolphins after
moving up to wing from her
usual midfield position.
Freshman Michelle McKenna
assisted on the-goal.
Doll said the Dolphins outshot
the Warriors 9-1 in the first half.
"We played OK [but] it could
have been more. We lost our
focus, but we came back a little
bit," he said.
Freshman Kelley Struyf scored
the Dolphins' lone goal in the sec-
ond half.
"At that time we pulled our
starters; they wanted to stay in,
but that was enough," Doll said.
Doll said freshman Ali Heller
played well in place of the team's
lone senior, Celena Mora, who
missed the game due to a pulled
hamstring.
"Ali took her place and she
played well for us. Of course, the
whole defense played well," he
said, noting seventh-grader Katie
Landry performed well in a rare
stint in goal.
The Dolphins host Key West
High School's junior varsity team
Tuesday at 4 p.m. in their last con-
test before the Christmas break.

Dolphins are lethargic in

By RYAN McCARTHY

There was no energy in the
building and no energy in the
team, Marathon High School
boys basketball coach Kevin
Freeman said of the Dolphins'
65-50 road loss Tuesday at
Bay Point High School in
Miami.
"I don't know if we think
we can just show up and win.
We haven't lost to them in
three years, so I don't know if


that was the attitude,"
Freeman said. "It was a quiet
gym; there were no fans, no
energy ... nothing. We have to
be able to create our own
energy."
The Dolphins (2-2) strug-
gled shooting as a team, going
a combined 0-14 from the
three-point line.
Freeman said senior stand-
out Blake Friedman and jun-
ior Alberic Forest were play-
ing through injury. Friedman
injured his heel and was able
to muster only 12 points.

Conchs fall apart in 2nd


Loss of Gordon
a big factor
in 7-1 defeat
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

When it comes to analyzing
his 1-12 team whose latest
loss was 7-1 to Gulliver Prep
before a small Wednesday night
crowd at Tommy Roberts
Memorial Stadium Key West
High School boys soccer coach
Jason Clifford never minces
words.
The young, inexperienced
Conchs played what seemed a
fairly decent first half against the
talented Miami private school
before collapsing early in the sec-
ond half.
"We played the way we were
supposed to play," Clifford said.
"No breakaways, take a profes-
sional foul to prevent easy goals,
keep possession, get comers and
throw-ins in their half and finish


any opportunity by getting into
the box, not shooting from out-
side. We played it into the middle
and the midfield rushed up and
crashed the net.
"But how can we say we
played one of our strongest
halves of the year in a 7-1 loss?"
After Gulliver had taken a 1-0
lead, the Conchs tied the score at
the 12-minute mark on a shot by
Wherden Charles that had been
set up by a rush down the left
sideline by Marlon Briones.
The score was still 1-1 at half-
time, but a minute before the
break, the Conchs lost sweeper
Trevoi Gordon for the rest of the
game because of two yellow
cards.
"Once we left the field, we
were playing with 10 players and
without a leader," Clifford said.
"Trevoi has become the emotion-
al stability of the.team, and is also
a calming force physically with
his size and decision making in
the back."


While Clifford was contem-
plating a second half without
Gordon, Gulliver Prep coach
Jorge Dieppa was chastising his
team for worrying about Key
West's aggressiveness, taking
long shots and not finishing near
the goal.
The Raiders (8-1-1) got the
message. They scored four min-
utes into the second half to make
it 2-1. A minute later, they scored
to make it 3-1. Less than a minute
after that, they made it 4-1.
Clifford watched players team
pout and put their heads down.
He knew it was over.
"We had people who could do
the job, but they did not step up,"
he said. "This started in the
defensive midfield, where we
maintained a gaping hole the
entire second half. The kids were
focused for half the game, but
when we lost focus we fell apart."
The Conchs will play
Monsignor Pace at 5 p.m. today
in Opa-Locka, then at 4 p.m.
Monday will play at home
against Mater Academy.


Bay Point 'just outhustled us


DOLPHINS / From 45

could tell it affected them,"
Freeman said. "When one of
our scorers is down, someone
needs to step up and no one did
that except Travis" Leachman.
Freeman said Leachman,
who led the team -with 15
points and pulled down nine
rebounds, was the lone bright
spot. Thirteen of his points


came during a fourth-quarter
Dolphin rally.
"He kept us in the game; he
got six offensive rebounds in
the fourth quarter and scored
on five of them," Freeman
said. "The other one he got
fouled and hit both free
throws."
Marathon led after one
quarter, 10-8, but was
outscored 21-6 in the second as
Freeman said the team's shot


were not falling. They trailed
by 13 at the half.
The Dolphins did manage to
trim the Falcon lead to seven
points with 2:30 remaining in
the final quarter, but were
unable to close the gap.
Freeman said the Falcons
hauled in offensive rebounds
- and converted them into
points on each of their final
four possessions to seal the
victory.
"Bay Point just outhustled
us in every facet of the game,"
Freeman said.
The Dolphins were sched-
uled to host undefeated district
rival Westwood Christian
Friday. Results were not avail-
able at press time.
Marathon will host another
district rival, Miami Christian
School, today at 5:30 p.m.
Freeman said home games
are important and the players
feed off the crowd's enthusi-
asm.
"After the holidays we only
have three home games left, so
we need to take care of busi-
ness at home," he said. "We
play a lot better at home. The
fans have been great [and] we
-needrthat- support,' .... .

donates $5M


to Penn State


Endowment
goes to new
Paterno fund
Associated Press


Two of Joe Paterio's friends
have given the Perm State coach
a surprise gift a $5 million
donation to endow the position
Patemo has occupied for 42 sea-
sons.,
The donation from Patrick
and Candace Malloy of Key
Largo was announced at a pri-
vate reception Monday in New,
York on the eve 'of Patemo's
induction into the College
Football Hall of Fame.
A team spokesman said
Paterno was surprised when he
learned a few days ago of the
creation of the Malloy Paterno
Head Football Coach
Endowment at Penn State.
"Honestly, this means just as
much to me as making it into the
Hall of Fame," Paterno said in
statement a released Tuesday
before his induction ceremony.
"I can't imagine a better sur-
prise. I guess Christmas came
early this year."
The money can be used to
pay for things like academic
support, special medical care for
team members and expenses
associated with recruiting and
coaching excluding salary.


Following a lengthy court battle
between the university and a
newspaper, Paterno's annual
salary was recently revealed to
be more than $512,000.
Paterno or his successor as
head coach could funnel endow-
ment money at his discretion, so
long as the athletic director
approved.
Paterno turns 81 on Dec. 21.
While his contract expires after
the 2008 season, Patemo has
said he feels he can coach at
least three more seasons.
The athletic department does
not receive state money to sup-
port Penn State's 29- varsity
sports and relies on ticket rev-
enue and private giving for
funds, the university said. The
Malloys' gift is the largest ever
to Penn State athletics.
"All of Penn State has bene-
fited from Joe's commitment to
success with honor," said Patrick
Malloy, a 1965 graduate of the
university.
Patemo is the record-holder
for head-coaching longevity at
one school and bowl wins (22),
and is two victories behind
Florida State's Bobby Bowden
for most wins overall at a major
school (371). Paterno will coach
in his record 34th bowl game
when the Nittany Lions play
Dec. 29 in the-Alamo Bowl
against Texas A&M.

Sabres get fat on Conchs


Team's roster
is thinned by
missing players
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

With two players left home
because of poor academic per-
formance, the Key West High
School boys basketball team
on Tuesday flunked yet anoth-
er test on the road against a
Division 16-4A team.
The Conchs, who haven't
won a road district game in
more than two seasons, lost to
St. Brendan's Sabres, 62-50,
in Miami.
Coach Paul Davis did not
allow senior Phillip Hardin
and sophomore Irekaz
Womack-Ashe to travel with
the team because they failed
courses. "If they go [on a
trip], they miss more time in
the class and fall further


behind," he said.
Hardin and Womack-Ashe
will be able to play in home
games, though that could also
change, said Davis, who made
his tough policy clear to the
team before the season began.
Without the two players -
who normally combine for at
least 16 points a game the
Conchs came up 12 points
short at St. Brendan and fell to
1-5 overall and 0-2 in district.
With junior Vladimyr
Sibera scoring nine of his
team-high 17 points in the
second quarter, the Conchs
trailed by only 31-27 at the
half.
"I told them we had to
come out strong in the third
quarter, but we came out flat,"
Davis said.
The Conchs were
outscored, 19-7, in the third
quarter as-the Sabres opened
up a 16-point lead.


Freshman point guard
Keith Valdez scored 11 points
for the Conchs. Zach Babich
had six, Michael Gallagher
and Josh Berkenmeyer five
each, David Ruiz four and
Anthony Allen-Reeves two.
Key West, which played
Edison late Friday night, will
face Mater Academy at 7
tonight at the Bobby
Menendez Gym.

District play is strong


CORAL SHORES / From 45

we have been," Thiery said.
By controlling the game,
Thiery said, the Canes. (3-4,
3-2) were able to dictate their
pace to the Bulldogs on their
home court.
"We forced a lot of
turnovers running a lot of dif-
ferent presses at them. That's
not our advantage being in
half-court sets; we're more of
an in your face, push the ball
type of a.team," he said.
The Canes were able to
consistently build their lead
in what Thiery said was a
physical matchup. They led
18-13 after one quarter and
38-26 at the half.
Up 18 after three quarters,
Thiery said the team's sub-
par effort from the free-throw
line allowed the Bulldogs to
make a game of it down the
stretch. Carroll began fouling
the Canes intentionally as
time wound down.
"They got it within 10
[with five minutes remain-
ing] and when that happens,
it's anybody's game," he
said.
SThe team hit five_.three-


pointers in the game, which
Thiery said he hopes will
shake off the shooting woes
that have plagued the Canes
at times.
"That's big for us that
we're starting to knock down
some shots. We're a better
shooting team then we've
shown," he said. "The big
reason we've lost is because
we didn't shoot well."
Thiery said the squad is
playing with confidence and
looking forward to two coun-
ty rivalry games prior to
Christmas break.
Coral Shores will travel to
Marathon High School
Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. before
hosting Key West High
School Thursday at the same
time.

Girls fall short
The Coral Shores girls
basketball team lost
Wednesday to a strong
Gulliver Prep team, 52-10.
They are now 1-6 so far this
season.
The Canes are scheduled
to host Palmer Trinity School
at noon today and Keys rival
Marathon High School
. Monday, 4 p.m...
