Those seeking to
replace Willi have
varied backgrounds
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Choosing a new county
administrator could be challeng-
ing but in a good way.
With two weeks until the job
posting closes, several highly
experienced people seek the top
job in Monroe County govern-
ment. As of late Monday, 24
people had applied.
Seven applicants are from
Florida, a plus in the final analy-
sis, according to county com-
missioners.
Acting County Administrator
Debbie Frederick says it's


important the applicants be lured
by more than the Keys setting.
"A huge portion of this is it's
not just to retire in a beautiful
atmosphere," she said. "We've
got some major issue we're fac-
ing."
Two applicants already work
for Monroe County.
Reggie Paros is director of
the county's Housing and Com-
muriity Development Depart-
ment. He's helping fill in on
some of the administrator's
duties until the job is filled.
Paros has worked for the county
30 years, 20 of those in upper
management.
Kevin Madok is assistant
financial director for the Monroe

Super Bowl a super


boost for retailers


High-def TVs
fly off shelves
for the game
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Never mind a recession
reportedly looming.
Super Bowl Sunday is right
around the corner- and
Americans want to watch the big
game in style.
According to the National
Retail Federation, sales of big-


screen televisions jump fivefold
during the week leading up to
the Super Bowl. There are 1.5
million sets expected to be sold
this week alone for the big
game, which pits New England
against the New York Giants at
6:18 p.m. Sunday.
One TV wasn't even enough
for Islamorada resident Patty
Murphy; she bought two big-
screens in anticipation of the
Super Bowl. Murphy said she

Charterboats at the well-known Holiday Isle Resort and

the start of sailfish season and excellent weather.

ADMINISTRATOR / From I

County Clerk's Office. His
cover letter suggests his finan-
cial expertise would make it
possible to avoid hiring a new
budget director, a job that's been
vacant since August. Madok has
worked for the county since
2004.
The administrator post
became vacant when the
County Commission fired Tom
Willi, who held the job for
three years, Dec. 5. He
received a severance package
of $282,000.
City and county managers
from all over the nation have
applied, including Shaun
Carey, city manager for
Sparks, Nev. Carey was a
finalist for the job twice in
2004, when Administrator Jim
Roberts retired.
In the first round of inter-
views that year, Sarasota resi-
dent David Bullock beat him
out. When Bullock balked at
the compensation package, the
County Commission chose
Willi over Carey in a second
round of interviews.
Carey has been city manag-
er for the Nevada city since
1999.
Michael Stampfler, a con-
sultant from Michigan, is also
a former finalist for the job.
He, along with Carey, made the
final interviews before Bullock
was selected. Stampfler was
also a finalist seeking the job
of Marathon city manager.
Stampfler says he's served
as a city manager for more than
20 years, one year of that as
manager for Casselberry, Fla.
He has run his own govern-
ment performance consulting
firm since 2005.
Salary for the new adminis-
trator will be based upon an
applicant's qualifications,
according to an ad that has
been circulated nationwide. It
will likely range between
$107,000 and $150,000.
Willi was being paid close
to $166,000 annually when he
left. The county's contribu-
tions for health insurance,
transportation and other bene-
fits brought his total package
up to a value of $203,000
annually.
Resumes and applications
will be accepted through Feb.
15, Frederick said.

administrator. The list will be narrowed down by a yet-to-be
convened committee, and the short list will go to the County

Boater found dead
off Elliott Key

The U.S. Coast Guard
ended its search for a missing
boater Tuesday morning after a
good Samaritan located the
body of the 45-year-old miss-
ing Miami man at 9:30 a.m.
three miles east of Sands Key,
near Elliott Key in Miami-
Dade County. The search area
included Key Largo.
Dan Stonionis' unmanned
vessel was located by two
good Samaritans off Elliott
Key Saturday, still engaged.


They managed to stop the ves-
sel and after going aboard,
located a cellular phone. They
called the last number dialed
and spoke with a person claim-
ing to be Stonionis' father.
Search-and-rescue crews
from- Coast Guard stations
Islamorada and Miami, air sta-
tions Clearwater and Miami,
cutters Ocracoke and Gannet,
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission and
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue
searched more than 3,000
square miles for almost three
days in an effort to locate
Stonionis.

ed weekly for fecal col-
iform and enterococcus,

village


cut-off

By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Islamorada Village Council
members try to pare down the
list of candidates for village
manager at a special meeting
Thursday.
The opening for the top
municipal staff position in
Islamorada, to replace Gary
Word, who resigned and whose
last day is Thursday, drew 50
applications.
After reviews of resumes by
individual council members, 23
men and one woman advance to
the next round.
Four candidates received ini-
tial interest from all five council
members:
Greg Tindle, deputy man-
ager of Islamorada from 1998-
03 and former manager of Bay
Harbor Islands.
Robert Mearns, most
recently manager of Femandina
Beach.
+ Fred Hays, most recently
manager of Glenn Heights,
Texas.
*.Ken Weaver, most recently
manager of the New Mexico
community of Eunice.
Six other candidates -
Michael Good, Henry Underhill,
Gus Pappas, Carlo Pilgrim,
Dennis Sparks and Robert
Schaumleffel were tapped by
four council members.
i Rankings could change as
council members take a more in-
depth look at the applications,
Hill said.
As planned, the manager will
be hired before municipal elec-
tions in March.
Council members also will
discuss the compensation pack-
age for the next manager. A draft
breakdown lists a salary of
$115,000 annually, with
$38,400 in housing and car
allowance, plus benefits.
The 5:30 p.m. Thursday
meeting at the Islamorada Fire
Station at mile marker 81.8 is
open to the public.

on tomorrow's trip."
"The phone is not ringing,"
said Joe Petrucco, captain of the
Killer Instinct. "January usually
is one of my better months. This
month, I've had five trips."
* "Unless things turn around,
I'm in real trouble," Petrucco
said. "We need help. I don't
know what the real problem is,
or what the answer is."
Captains and crew from many
of the 17 offshore charterboats at


the Islamorada docks acknowl-
edge the uncertain economy
plays a role in the downturn for
their sportfishing business.
They also believe that
Holiday's Isle's uncertain future
is a factor.
"People are surprised we're
still here," Rudzin said. "The
place was supposed to be shut
down and cleared off by now."
"We're really trying to let
people know we're still here,"
said Petrucco, who moved to
Holiday Isle last spring after sev-

heard, Holiday Isle was shutting
down.
"Now I don't know what the
public perception is," he said.
"Maybe people don't know the
resort is open."
Holiday Isle, covering 14
acres on the Windley Key ocean-
front along Whale Harbor, was
sold for conversion to upscale
condominiums and condo-hotel
units. Most of the 17 existing
structures were targeted for dem-
olition, although property man-
agers said they would try to keep
the decades-old marina operat-
ing.
Demolition was expected to
begin in April 2007. With the'
real-estate downturn taking
shape, that plan was put on hold
and the landmark Holiday Isle
continues to operate.


But not like it did, captains
say.
Special events have become
less frequent. Most shops along
the "Bahamian" waterfront
shopping village are shuttered
and locked, the owners moving
out in advance of the expected
closing.
The captains, who rent space
from the resort as independent
business people, as trying to con-
vince the current resort managers
to boost promotion, and try to
improve visibility of the pictur-
esque boats from the highway.

our rent," Rudzin said.

Some captains want the resort
to overhaul its booking system.
Offshore fishing has become
more expensive because of fuel
prices and other costs, with full
day charters running from $900
to more than $1,300.
But other marinas seem to be
doing better, say Holiday Isle
captains who have surveyed
their local peers.
At Bud 'n Mary's Marina,
owner Richard Stanczyk said
this has been "a little bit slower
season."
"Our boats aren't going out
quite as much, but I think the
guys at Holiday Isle do have it
worse," Stanczyk said. "It's a lot
of things. We've lost some motel
rooms in Islamorada and there's
no doubt that does have an
effect. There's the whole eco-
nomic situation."
Stanczyk said the sportfishing
business may never return to its
heyday.
"Our customers used to be
serious fishermen," he said.
"The nature of our visitors is
changing, and a lot of them
aren't as interested in sportfish-
ing. That scares me more than
anything else."

Specific groups
profiled for
travel to Keys
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

It was international day at
Tuesday's Monroe County
Tourist Development Council
meeting.
Council advertising, public
relations, sales and marketing
staffs spent the morning outlining
their efforts to reel in foreign
tourists.
In dramatic fashion in
December, Monroe County
Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro, chairman of the TDC,
tasked the staff with bringing in
more European tourists. But he


said he felt a bit foolish by the
end of Tuesday's lengthy presen-
tation.
"I thought I was a rocket scien-
tist, but you're one step ahead of
me," he said to Harold Wheeler,
the council's marketing director.
Tinsley Full Service Advertis-
ing, NewmanPR and TDC in-
house staff put on a presentation
profiling the European traveler
and describing their efforts to
promote the Keys.
The groups focus on the
* English-, German-, French-,
Dutch- and Italian-speaking areas
of Europe-during 17 travel shows
there, and advertise on television
and in newspapers throughout
* those regions.
Board members also asked

planned to make the purchase
anyway as part of a remodeling
project at her home, but wanted
to make sure and have the sets
installed before the game.
"It was just one of those
things I had to do," Murphy
joked. "I wanted to get them
hooked up prior to the Super
Bowl so my friends and family
can come over and relax and
enjoy the game."
Murphy said now was the
time to take the plunge into the
world of high-definition TV.
"They've come down a lot in
price over the years. I had old
televisions that weren't HD-
quality, so when I remodeled it
didn't make sense to buy TVs
that couldn't do the job,"
Murphy said.-
The wall mounts, Murphy
said, were ideal for her renova-
tion project.
Borico said business typically
picks up in the days before the
game and BrandsMart's delivery
guarantee entices many last-
minute shoppers.
"Even on Saturday we'll
deliver by 3 p.m. Sunday, so
toward the end of the week guys
will be coming in," Borico said.
According to a www.cnn

markets like China and Russia.
More of the report is available in
the TDC section of the county's
Web site.
The council also discussed the
sinking of the USS Hoyt S.
Vandenberg as an artificial reef
near Key West. County commis-
sioners had taken upthe subject
at their meeting Friday, much to
the dismay of Di Gennaro.
Sinking the Vandenberg has
been a sticky situation for the


TDC since all five of its regional
advisory groups denied county
requests to fund the scuttling. At
the time, observers speculated
county commissioners might
simply deny the TDC budget or
rewrite it to include funding the
Vandenberg project.
County Commissioner George
Neugent is the one who broached
the subject at Friday's County
Commission meeting. Di
Gennaro said he doesn't feel the


timing is right.
"Get the European visitors
here, then I'll come for the
money," he said, which was fol-
lowed by laughter throughout the
council and public in attendance.
Wheeler said he hopes it was
only a joke.
"I know that the county is hav-
ing budget problems," he said.
"However, to take $2 million
from our budget would really
throw our budget in havoc."

Keys Opinion


FEMA audit triggers

concern over payment

Key West got a major dose of bad news recently with word
that $5.2 million in federal reimbursement for hurricane repairs
may be recalled.
Worst case, the city Will owe that money to the Federal
Emergency Management Agency, which originally authorized
the funds following Hurricane Irene in 1999.
In Saturday's Keynoter, we detailed the efforts now under
way to stave off repayment.
'A lot hinges on the political clout of our U.S. congress-
woman, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who met with city officials last
week in Washington to review the case.
City Manager Jim Scholl told the Keynoter the city hopes to
provide additional documentation to FEMA that will help the
federal agency reconsider.
Apparently, an independent audit of FEMA's original hurri-
cane recovery award is what drew attention to the matter. In
dispute is how much the city's sewer system was damaged by
Hurricane Irene.
FEMA initially approved $7.1 million, but the audit chal-
lenges $5.323 million, arguing the damage was not caused by
the hurricane.
Given tight budgets at both city and county levels, this sort of
demand for payment couldn't come at a worse time.
Ros-Lehtinen, in a statement following her meeting with Key

Bogus money costs us all

Tuesday's police report about bogus bills turning up on Big
Pine Key brings a reminder for all Keys merchants to be on the
lookout.
Bankers report other instances of fake money being passed in
recent weeks. Perhaps it's the flood of visitors and the busier
tempo of business that distracts some cashiers this time of year.
The four $20 bills were used to buy gas. One tipoff: All four
bills had the same serial number. And the darker green color
should have set off alarm bells.
But it was late at night and the bogus bills weren't spotted
until the manager was counting out the till on the next shift.
The customer's description has been given to the cops and
the bank has filed a report with the feds. Passing counterfeit
money is a federal crime.
Keeping a closer eye can help law enforcement crack down
on counterfeiters, who cost us all in higher prices to conduct
business.

Where's all the tax money from new development?


EDITOR:
In recent years, property values in Monroe
County have absolutely skyrocketed, so much
so that the resultant taxes and insurance have
forced many of our neighbors out.
Much of this money has obviously been
collected into Monroe County coffers. Now
we're so poor that we can't afford essential
county employees, can't afford to staff our
libraries, can't afford our animal shelters.
Where, pray tell, has this additional money
gone?
We were never purported to be such a poor
county before all of this additional tax rev-
enue was collected. We were never such a
poor county before developers bought up mul-
tiple prime properties, supposedly in the best
interest of our community.
One would assume that they would be pro-
viding the county with significantly more rev-
enue than did the previous owners. That was
part of the reason for the zoning changes in


their favor and so forth, right? I could have
sworn that's what I was told when I repeated-
ly questioned various officials as to why they
appeared to be selling us out.
Now, livid at taxpayers for tightening the
purse strings a little, the powers are threaten-
ing us, not with salary cuts for themselves or
elimination of their pet pork-barrel projects,
but with things that they know will put fear in
our hearts. That would be loss of lower-level
jobs, library services and, heaven forbid, ani-
mal shelters.
I've read with interest about the effort to
unincorporate Marathon, but do ya'll.really
think that the current Monroe County govern-
ment stands ready to be on your side of this
particular argument? I don't pretend to be an
expert, it looks like they might be doing
something else right now.

Why lay off workers when we're bringing others in?


EDITOR:
I find it appalling that Monroe County, with
all of its tax revenue generated from the citi-
zens of the Florida Keys, deems it necessary to
lay off a portion of the Public Works employ-
ees, those who live and pay taxes to Monroe
County. Shame on the County Commission.
This is a county that makes it all too afford-
able for those who live outside of Monroe
County to ride the public buses in and out of
the Keys for employment only. Maybe the
brain trust of our county should take a long
hard look at just how many non-locals are
employed in Monroe County but yet are not
homeowners, taxpayers and consumers.


I know from personal experience. My wife
and I are residents and have been forced to go
back to truck driving over the road so we can
afford to own our home here (but not live in it)
because there are not enough'decent-paying
jobs due to those outsiders being bused in to
work for lower wages. Monroe County needs
to take care of its own.
To the county, I say take your head out the
sand. There would be plenty to go around if
you would just be responsible and do the right
thing for once. Listen to those who live in and
love the Florida Keys.

County employee is way too curious


EDITOR:
I would like to thank Monroe County for
making me feel like I live in a communist
country.
Recently a car clearly marked with a
Monroe County decal stopped in front of our
property and the driver began taking photos.
As I walked to the car, the Monroe County
employee-dropped the camera and sped away
as I waved for them to stop.
I am a retired Navy SEAL and combat vet-
eran and my wife is a former Navy fighter
pilot. At least two of our four boys have
expressed a desire to serve in the U.S. mili-
tary. We pay our taxes. We don't break laws. I
hold the door for women and senior citizens.
In short, we are good, honest Americans.
I made no menacing gesture toward the
Monroe County photo taker, so what gives?
Maybe we are under double secret surveil-
lance. If that's the case, I can offer some
excellent advice on how to properly carry out
such a mission.
In the meantime, I'd just like to remind
Monroe County that this is still America and
if a county employee is taking my picture,


they should be able to tell me why and not
tear away as if they are the one breaking
the law.

Jets were there before homes


EDITOR:
We have been hearing people
complain about the noise from the
jets at Naval Air Station Key West
too long. It needs to end. Having
been in the Keys 48 years, I
remember when there were just a


few houses on Stock Island and the
air station had been there before
that. So I say if you don't like the
noise, why did you move to that
area?

Know proper flag etiquette


EDITOR:
Please take note, Monroe
County Sheriff's Office and Tax
Collector's Office: There is a way
to display the American flag.
The fundamental rule of eti-
quette is to treat all flags with
respect and common sense. The
Stars and Stripes takes precedence
over all other flags when flown


within the United States. Other
flags may never be flown at the
same height and in the same size."
The American flag has priority
over any other flag. If I'm mistaken
altogether, please accept my apolo-
gies. Everyone should know proper
flag etiquette.

There's nowhere like the Keys


EDITOR:
I had a thought on a recent mom-
ing and then I sat back and consid-
ered how utterly true that thought
was.
Even though we are not in the
immediate aftermath of Hurricane
Wilma or looking down the barrel of
another storm right now, I thought
about how wonderful and unique the
people who inhabit the Keys are:
They are as courageous as the pio-


neers, since in some way they leave
the known world and come here to
risk their worldly goods each sea-
son. And they are as playful as the
pirates of old since it takes a truly
colorful character to settle here.
So I just wanted to take a
moment to salute my neighbors and
say thanks a lot for the fun. Damn, I
love it here.

Bike donations appreciated


EDITOR:
We would like to thank and rec-
ognize the wonderful things Jack
Marshall does for our community.
Jack has been donating bikes to the
Salvation Army Thrift Store for
three years.
In addition, Jack brings the
money from the bikes that he sells
in the park he lives in and donates it
to the Salvation Army. The money
raised from the sale of Jack's bikes


helps fund our social-service pro-
grams or is given to those who need
transportation to and from work.
Jack winters on Grassy Key and
has made it his hobby to refurbish
old bikes and put them to good use.
The girls at the Salvation Army
Thrift Store appreciate his kindness
and compassion.

Elie for providing beautiful holiday
music; Girl Scout Troop 749 for
volunteering time to assist with var-


ious farm tasks; and Roxanne,

Crane

track

Snafu causes
U.S. 1 delays
on the Stretch
Keynoter Staff


A large crane threw its track
before dawn Saturday, causing
a traffic slowdown at the
Jewfish Creek Bridge construc-
tion site.
Traffic on U.S. 1 alternated
onto the one open lane until
both lanes were cleared shortly
after 10 a.m.
"It was all hands on deck to
get the crane moved as soon as
possible," said Patti Jones,
information officer for the proj-
ect. "Because it happened on
Saturday, traffic was heavy and
there was a backup. It was, as
far as I know, the first unex-
pected delay we've had."
The crane was being used to
-lift 100-ton girders onto sup-
ports. When time came to move
the crane off the bridge's north-
bound lane south of the draw
span, the metal track that pro-
pels the crane separated. .
"One of our supervisors
described it as the kind of thing
that happens about every 15
years," Jones said.
Project directors expect to
have all the support beams in
place over Jewfish Creek by
mid-February.
A large barge-mounted crane.
also is being used to place
beams to limit lane closures.
However, some closures of the
Jewfish Creek navigation chan-
nel are planned. Tentative dates
for the Coast Guard-approved
closings are Feb. 8 and Feb. 11.

Layoff program already taking effect


Administrative
leave in place
for the targeted
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Though most of the Monroe
County layoffs approved
Friday don't go into effect until
Feb. 29, many of those short-
timers have been put on admin-
istrative leave until the end of
their tenure with Monroe
County.
The County Commission
approved $2.3 million in budg-
et cuts during a special meeting
Friday that will result in 30
fewer county jobs. Though
some of those positions are
already vacant, a number of
people are being laid off.
Dawn Acker is one of those
people.
A relative newcomer to the
county, she was hired primarily
to write grants, a job she says
could save the county far more
than it spends on her $88,000
salary. In her first 10 months,


she wrote in an e-mail, she
saved tens of thousands of dol-
lars for landscaping at Florida
Keys Marathon Airport at no
cost to the county. She also
negotiated a union grievance
settlement that she calls "an
immense savings for the coun-
ty, and served on a number of
teams aimed at revamping the
way the county does business."
She also spent countless
hours, she said, trying to find
money to offset the controver-
sial $2 million commitment by
the County Commission to sink
the USS Hoyt S. Vandenberg
off Key West as an artificial
reef.
"I have also researched and
provided recommendations on
hundreds of thousands in
grants for the libraries,
fire/EMS, public works and the
animal shelter," she wrote.
Lynda Berrigan, conserva-
tion chairwoman of the
Marathon Garden Club, sent a
letter to Commissioner George
Neugent encouraging him to
take another look at the layoffs.


"There is a human cost to
this," she told the Keynoter
Tuesday. "The intellectual cap-
ital we have in these people
who work for the county, they
are experts in their fields,
available to the community. It's
appalling to me that people of
this caliber and level of pro-
ductivity would be summarily
terminated."
Acting County Admin-
istrator Debbie Frederick says
the layoffs were complicated
and difficult and all the more
difficult, she said, because a
number of Public Works
employees are members of the
Teamsters. Public Works is cut-
ting 20 staffers.
"We followed the union
contract exactly," Frederick
said. "Last in is the first out."
But so-called white -collar
workers had different criterion
to meet, and some supervisory
positions were cut.
"We left it up to each divi-
sion director," Frederick said.
"Each came up with two white
collar employees [to be cut]."
In'Public Works, that meant

Carbonell, like Acker, is out of
a job.
Union representative David
Renshaw told Frederick he will
put forth a proposal by the mid-
dle of this week. One of the
ideas floated at the meeting
was, instead of laying people
off, making across-the-board
salary cuts for all employees.
"If Renshaw provides us
with something, I'll probably


bring it forward Monday,"
Frederick said. "People are
nervous about talking salary
cuts for all the staff, so I'd like
to get this taken care of one
way or the other."
The County Commission
convenes in Key West at 3 p.m.
Monday to discuss revamping
its working waterfront ordi-
nance.

Students grease the wheels for cleaner air


Physics team
look to run
biodiesel buses
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Physics teacher Josh
Clearman doesn't find it odd
that there are 100 gallons of


used cooking grease in his
classroom.
He finds it important.
Not because the six-year
Key West High School teacher
is an avid collector of grease,
but because his students are
passionate about reducing air
pollution.
A group of 25 honors stu-


dents, called the Varsity
Physics team, is producing
environmentally friendly
biodiesel fuel to run a 1985
Mercedes Benz and, hopefully
in time, all of their school
buses.
"My students are the impe-
tus," Clearman said. "They are
the reason we are doing it."

Sheriff oversees
auction from
court judgment
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County
Sheriff's Office has some facets
that are not so well known. Case
in point: the cataloging, storage
and eventual auction of thou-
sands of antiques.
"It took us 11 days to pack it
and put it all into storage," said
Rachelle Gates, supervisor of
the agency's civil division.
It's the result of a $410,000
judgment against the Duck and
Dolphin Antique Store in Key
West last September and ends
with bids to be in to the
Sheriff's Office by 5 p.m. Feb.
26. The money raised will go
toward the lien but will also be
used to reimburse expenses
incurred by the Sheriff's Office.
"First they'll need to pay the
costs incurred, including 24-
hour security" on the inventory


since the September judgment
was filed, Gates said. "They'll
have to pay for the ads, the
movers and a statutory sheriff's
fee."
Gates said levying of proper-
ty often falls within the
Sheriff's Office's purview.
"We don't seem to do them
as much as we used to," she
said. "Previously, there were
times when we'd have three
going a week. This is the

'Vandenberg' sink date set for May 15


Ship expected
to go down
7 miles offshore
By KYLE TEAL
kleal@keynoter.com

On May 15. the USS Hoyt S.
Imwidenberg will become the sec-
ond largest ship ever intentional-
ly scuttled as an artificial reef,
project planners say.
The 520-foot former military
vessel will sink 7 miles off Key
West 144 feet into the blue.
Managers of the 10-year proj-
ect say the 14,300-ton former
military vessel will be towed
from its shipyard in Norfolk,
Va., where it's been cleaned out
and prepared for scuttling.


Joe Weatherby of
Reefmakers, the contractor that
will scuttle the vessel for
Artificial Reefs of the Keys, said
since the announcement of the
ship's sinking, he's seen a huge
spike in visits to the future
attraction's Web site, www.big
shipwrecks.com.
"It's really got the wow factor
to it," he said. "It's been a long
road."
What's left for the retired
missile-tacking vessel: "She'll
endure the final preparation
steps to ensure she deploys prop-
erly," Weatherby said, adding
that the sinking won't produce a
large explosion. "This is isn't
like a Wyle Coyote situation. It's
all very surgical. There is no

Monroe County Tourist
Development Council Director
Harold Wheeler has said the four
TDC districts outside Key West
don't expect to rake in much
more revenue from the artificial
reef, considering the southern-
most island will be the obvious
destination for most divers,
snorkelers and boaters bound for
the shipwreck.

But project managers, along
'with county and city officials,
optimistically predict a heavily
boosted economy for Key West
and Monroe County.
According to a study done by
Solutions for Progress Inc. of
Philadelphia, the reef is project-
ed to bring in between $56 mil-
lion and $168 million in com-
merce over the next 10 years.
"The sinking of the
Vandenberg is going to be the
biggest event in Key West since
the railroad arrived," City
Commissioner Bill Verge said.
"Let's see who is complaining
about it next summer, when all
of the hotel rooms are full."
The total cost of the project is
$5.7 million, an effort that took
the help of the city of Key West,
Monroe County, TDC, U.S.
Maritime Administration, Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration
and local banks.
Verge said complaints of
funding for the Vandenberg are
unfounded, as the county should
make its $2 million contribution

back from bed taxes-hotel rev-
enue.
"It has nothing to do with
property taxes," he said. "It's
coming out of a half-penny sales
tax for all kind of purposes" like
tourism and infrastructure funds.
Verge expects you'll have a
reef teeming with various
species of fish, like the Spiegel
Grove does in Key Largo.
Weatherby said skeptics
should also look' at Escambia
County's success- Pensacola is
-home to the largest ship sunk as
an artificial reef, the 910-foot
retired aircraft carrier Oriskany,
scuttled May 2006.
Ed Shroeder, vice president
of Pensacola Bay Area Tourism
Development, claimed Escambia
County made its $1 million
investment back in bed taxes
within three days after their 910-
foot ship, the Oriskany, opened
to divers.
Pensacola's bed tax revenue
for 2005-06 increased more than
17 percent.
In 1944, the Vandenberg was
transporting troops and called
the USS Gen. Harry Taylor. The
ship served in World War II and
other conflicts.
It was recommissioned in
1963, given the name of Gen.
Hoyt Sanford Vandenberg, a
founding father of the U.S. Air
Force.
The ship also appeared in the
1999 Sci-Fi thriller "Virus" star-
ring Jamie Lee Curtis.

Navy stores now


open to civilians


Those living

By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The Navy Exchange store, a
mini-mart and gas stations are
now open to civilians living in
government housing at Naval Air
Station Key West.
"The commanding officer has
the authority to allow it," base
spokesman Jim Brooks said.
"Capt. J.R. Brown did it as a
measure of affordable living out
there."
Brooks said a few retirees
have called and complained
about the new initiative, saying

Counterfeit bills
passed on Big Pine

Counterfeit money is floating
around the Keys, the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office said
Tuesday.
Agency spokeswoman Becky
Herrin said Deputy David
Chavka was called to the Big
Pine Key Tom Thumb store at 8
p.m. Monday and told by the
clerk the bills were passed to him
the night before. He said the
manager noticed them at the end
of his shift.
The clerk says he thinks they
came from a man who used them
to pay for gas. He said the man
gave him four $20 bills, filled his
tank and received $16 in change.
He says the man spoke Spanish,
was 28 to 30 years old, short,
heavy and had black hair combed
straight back.
The bills had matching serial
numbers, were printed ofh thicker
paper than real bills and were
darker green than real bills.
The manager took the bills to
First State Bank. The bank filed a
report with the Secret Service.
First State reportedly told the
manager they had received simi-
lar counterfeit bills recently from
other businesses.


intended only for military per-
sonnel.
According to Brooks, profits
from the stores go to the U.S.
Navy's recreation programs such
as for the weight room.
Active-duty military person-
nel and retirees are allowed to
shop there, as are U.S. govern-
ment civilian employees and
their authorized family members
who live at Trumbo Point, the
Naval Branch Health Clinic,
Sigsbee Park and Truman Annex.
If they live off base, Brooks
said, people cannot purchase
products like sandwiches and
drinks unless they're consumed
on base, regardless of whether
they work on base.
The Navy Exchange will only
deliver a product within a 25-
mile radius.
"It's really up to the con-
sumer" where they want to shop,
Brooks said.
The best deals aren't always
on base either, he added.
Convenience is certainly a
factor, Brooks said, and many on-
base workers would rather travel
down the street than into town,
and those purchases only help the
Navy.
"I think it's a win-win,"
Brooks said.

College wants more space


Its expansion
up the Keys
a tough issue
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Florida Keys Community
College President Jill
Landesberg-Boyle feels the
$3.1 million the college con-
tributed to the construction of
Coral Shores High School and
$2.1 million spent on con-
struction of Marathon High
should give buy the college
more space up the Keys.
But with space at a premi-
um, Monroe County School
District Superintendent Randy
Acevedo says the School
Board must..worry about its
high-schoolers before any-
thing else.
"We have to take care of
our kids first," Acevedo said.
"We're going to do the best
that we can in coming up with
some additional space for
them."
FKCC "contributed many
years ago," Acevedo said. "We


have an arrangement with
them for so many spaces dur-
ing the day, but mostly during
the evening. Night classes
were good back in the day, but
now the college is changing
direction and they want more
space."
Landesberg-Boyle said she
wants more classes to be
offered during the day for stu-
dents up the Keys.
"We would like to better
serve our constituency there,"
Landesberg-Boyle said,
adding the mission of FKCC is
Keyswide, not just for Key
Westers at their Stock Island
campus.
Landesberg-Boyle said the
college paid 10 percent of the
cost for the construction of
Coral Shores in Tavernier and
pays $2,300 to $2,500 a month
for maintenance fees. That
school was re-built in 2001.
In that school, FKCC has
an office, one daytime class-
room, a nursing lab and a
small video conference room.
The college has five class-
rooms at Marathon, whose


new building opened for this
school year. The college also
paid 10 percent of construc-
tion costs for that school, $2.1
million, and pays a similar
monthly fee as it does at Coral
Shores.
According to Landesberg-
Boyle, a hike in the college's
"rent" is likely.
Acevedo said a possible
solution is finding when the
teachers at both schools have a
period off for planning and
using the classrooms within
those time windows for col-
lege classes.
The discussion was pre-
sented Monday night during
the college board's Trustees
meeting. The space issue will
be reviewed again in February.
The college also hit a possi-
ble roadblock in its quest to
increase dual enrollment for
vocational classes.
Because vocational classes
bring in more money for the
high schools, called "career
funding," its fiscally painful
for the high schools to encour-
age their students to enroll in
college courses.

Florida KeTc-- Business Card's


State attorneys tried last
Wednesday to reinstate a suspen-
sion that would keep Allstate's
10 insurance companies from
writing new policies in Florida.
Insurance Commissioner
Kevin McCarty suspended
Allstate the week before after it
refused to turn over documents
sought by the state. Regulators
want company executives to
explain why it hadn't reduced
rates enough after last year's pas-
sage of a bill designed to lower
premiums.
The court allowed Allstate to
keep selling insurance in Florida
while the company appeals the
state's order barring it from writ-
ing new business.

meetings.
The structure, at 516 Duval


St., also served as, one of the
nation's first bilingual schools.
Inside the San Carlos, which is
open Friday to Sunday from noon
to 6 p.m., one can read about the
Cuban revolution and view paint-
ings, statues and photographs of
some of the rebels who fight
alongside Marti.
Marti's stoic presence can be
seen in Bayview Park, where a
statue stands off Jose Marti
Drive. Former Key West City
Commissioner Jose Menendez
read some of Marti's poetry
before a small gathering at the
statue Monday, Marti's birthday
155 years ago.
Aside from Key West, Marti
pushed his revolutionary ideas
while living in Tampa and New
York City; a statue of Marti on
horseback is in Central Park.
Cuba was free from Spanish
colonial rule in 1902, though
Marti wasn't alive to relish it. He
died in 1895, fighting Spanish
troops during the Battle of Dos
Rios in Cuba.


This is what is
now the Le Te Da
restaurant (left) on
Duval Street in the
late 19th Century,
where Jose Marti
rested and spoke
to other exiled
Cuban-Americans
from the terrace. It
used to be a
home called La
Terraza De Marti,
or the Terrace of
Marti. Above,

Major


continues



dominance


Conch wrestler
still undefeated,
runs mark to 25-0


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


Key West senior wrestler
Ralph Major stayed undefeated
over the weekend by pinning
three opponents at a meet at
Jupiter High School.
Major, whose goal is to win
the state title in the 189-pound
division, improved his record
to 25-0.
Dating to last season, he has
won 67 of 70 matches.
"He's wrestling in a class of
his own," coach John Moeller
said. "You see his talent, and
you see no one challenging
him. He pinned a kid from
Doral Academy with a leg cra-
dle you hardly ever see
that."


Coral Shores heads
to tournament. See
story, Page 24.

Major was voted the tourna-
ment's outstanding wrestler in
the upper weight classes.
Asked if Major has the tal-
ent to wrestle at a Division 1
college, Moeller said, "He has
the talent to go to the
Olympics. He has phenomenal
hips, understands leverage and
is so smart."
Cody Aydt, a 160-pound
senior, finished fourth at the
Jupiter meet and was the only
other Key West wrestler to
place as the Conchs finished
14th out of 26 teams. "That was
a little disappointing because
Belen Jesuit and Doral finished
ahead of us," Moeller said.

The Marathon High School
boys basketball team overcame
a sluggish start Monday against
Florida Christian School, even-
tually pulling away for a 59-46
victory over the Patriots.
Coach Kevin Freeman said
the team was still upset over an
emotional Friday loss at Key
West High School and took
awhile to get into thegame.
"After that loss, we spent a


lot of energy and could have
easily come out flat against this
team. We were flat in the first
quarter but we stepped it up for
a good win coming off that
game," Freeman said.
Senior guard Blake Friedman
had another huge game for the
Dolphins, scoring 30 points with
11 rebounds and.three steals.
Sophomore big man Travis
Leachman had what Freeman
called the "best game of his
career," scoring 18 points and
hauling in 14 rebounds.

Dolphins in the first quarter,

"That was a surprise," Terrill

Yordan Palanco, a sophomore

23 seconds to victory


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


Before Friday night's game,
necktied coach Kevin Freeman
had placed a towel on the back
of each of his players' folding
chairs, explaining he was trying
to inject some class in Marathon
High School boys basketball.
He also said he couldn't
remember the last time the
Dolphins had left Key West with
a victory.
They were to come close to
doing that, but in the end all
there was to contemplate was a
wrenching 41-40 loss to the
Conchs in an intense game at the
Bobby Menendez Gym.
It was a: defensive battle,
though Key West coach Paul
Davis couldn't figure how the
Conchs, even against the aggres-
sive Dolphins' zone, could shoot
only 25 percent from the field.
Led by high-scoring guard


Blake Friedman he had 12
consecutive points late in the
third quarter the Dolphins
led, 37-29, with less than five
minutes remaining in the game.
Marathon then made four
consecutive turnovers and, after
a jumper by Michael Gallagher,
its lead was down to 39-37 with
2:18 to go.
The frenetic final two min-
utes then began to unfold before
a screaming crowd.
Friedman made it 40-37 with
a free throw ... Phillip Hardin cut
it to 40-39 with a jump shot ...
Keith Valdez tied it at 40-40 with
a free throw with 47 seconds
left.
After a Marathon time-out,
Alberic Forest stepped over the
sideline while trying to make an
inbounds pass, causing Freeman
to gape in disbelief.
Valdez was then fouled again.


He made one of two free throws
for a 41-40 lead with 23 seconds
left. With 13.8 on the clock, the
Dolphins called time-out to set
up a potential game-winning
play.
Friedman took the inbounds
pass and weaved through Conch
defenders before going up for a
layup. The ball sat tantalizingly
on the rim and then fell off.
A foul was called against
Marathon on the scramble for
the rebound, and although David
Ruiz missed both free shots,
there was only a second left. The
Dolphins heaved a length-of-
the-court pass that Gallagher
happily intercepted to end the
game.
"I should have made it," a
teary Friedman, who scored 21
points, said afterward.
"That was the best we played
all year," said Freeman, whose
team fell to 8-12 (it's now 9-12

'I think we will win the district'


.-Lady Conchs
resolute for
district play
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Last year, the Key West High
School girls basketball team had
three victories and no hope
going into the District 16-4A
tournament.
Today, the Conchs take the
floor in the first round of the
tournament with 12 victories and
a world of confidence.








SPORT SHIRTS
for your fisherman...


PUBLIX PLAZA
MARATHON


The 12-7 Conchs will play
Edison, a team they defeated,
71-34, in December, at 5 p.m. at
St. Brendan High in Miami. If
they win, they will play St.
Brendan in a semifinal game at 5
on Friday.
The team's turnaround from
laughingstock (last season's
nadir was a 70-3 loss) to con-
tender has been engineered by
Glenn Hayes Sr., who succeeded
Kris Clark as coach. Hayes has
15 players, about 10 of whom
see regular action.
From the season's outset, the
Conchs bought into Hayes' mes-
sage: play as a team.
"We don't rely on one person
to score points," he said. "The
ladies count on each other."
The team's top scorer, sopho-
more guard Chelsea Storr, aver-
ages about 14 points a game, but
guards Samantha Campbell,
Alicia Arrazola and Daphne
Barnett, and post players
Ja'Taure Mathis and Kristen
Babich are also capable of scor-
ing in double figures.
The Conchs depend on a trap-
ping defense to force turnovers


that lead to transition layups. In
the half court, they like to go
inside to Mathis, who, if double-
teamed, can pass out to Storr,
Campbell or Barnett, all of
whom can make 3-point shots.
Key West was 4-3 in the dis-
trict, with the most significant
games being a four-point loss to
tournament top seed Monsignor
Pace, and a recent 55-48 victory
over St. Brendan that avenged an


earlier 50-15 loss.
"Now that they've beaten St.
Brendan, they are very confi-
dent," said Hayes, who expects
the team to finish first or second
in the tournament, either of
which would mean advancing to
the regionals. "They have, the
attitude and the spirit."
Babich, one of two seniors on
the team, said she was surprised
at the team's success.


"I never thought we'd get that
close to Pace," she said, recall-
ing lopsided losses to the
Spartans in her sophomore and
junior years. "Now, I think we
will win the district."
To do that, the Conchs must
cut down on turnovers and make
a better percentage of free
throws. In recent games, there
has been improvement in both
areas.

Dolphins win big after heartbreaking loss


DOLPHINS / From 23

Freeman said, as the team strug-
gled to find a rhythm offensively.
Leachman scored five of the
team's six points in the quarter.
"We got off to a slow start;
they were a bigger team than us,
with sound ball players,"
Freeman said, noting Friedman
appeared hurried early on. "He's
a lot better player when he does-


n't force things."
Friedman came around in the
second quarter with eight points,
while Leachman netted six more.
The two scored 48 of the
Dolphins' 59 points.
Freeman said the Dolphins
began to take control in the third
quarter and led by as many as 18
during the fourth quarter.
The Dolphins had only six
turnovers in the game and sank
11 of 16 free throws in the fourth

Keys Fishing


Offshore
^.. Capt. Kevin Kelly on the
Motherload from WImhle
Harbor Marina in Islamorada
fished the Islamorada Hump
Saturday and boated 18
blackfin tuna in the 4- to 5-
pound range. And Capt.
Kerry "Zilla" Price took a
ride offshore mid-week in
search of broadbill sword-
fish; one was hooked and
boated that weighed just
under 100.

Reefs ,
Sailfish action was fair to
good early last week, but
slowed late in the week.
Most charterboats are
catching king mackerel fish-
ing live bait or de-boned bal-
lyhoo close to the bottom
from 90 to 200 feet of water.
.- Capt. Paul Johnson on the
Reef Runne went old school
and firolled the top edge of
the reef and loaded up on the
old standby, cero mackerel.

Gulf, bay
Staying with the mstiackerel
family, yes it's the Spanish
mackerel that is the highlight
in Gulf waters. They 'll ray-
enously eat a shrimp on a jig
head with a short wisp of
No. 3 wire; just keep a block
of chum in the water.
Capt. Lou Brubaker
fished a.couple of wrecks on
a very foggy Thursday and
reported a couple of cobia
and Goliath grouper. But the
surprise was the 15-foot
depth gave up six snook.
Apparently the snook vacat-
ed a cold Florida Bay a cou-
ple of weeks ago and headed
for deeper water to stay
warm.

Flats, backcountry
A full moon during the
week moved the bait and
fish around in the Flamingo
area. The snook bite was
Good and there are some red-
fish in the mix also.
There are sea trout scat-
tered all over the Flamingo
area, but the action on the
trout will get better during
February.

A smoot

The global-warming pundits
may be right, after all, because it
seems something is wrong with
Mother Nature: The Swamp
Guides Ball backcountry tourna-
ment was Saturday and it wasn't
blowing 25 knots, mid-60s and
overcast.
Like the Redbone tournament
for cystic-fibrosis research in the
fall, you can set your atmospher-
ic clock by the Swamp Guides
Ball for a lousy weather report,
which has always been the charm
of the tournament. But mid-70s,
flat calm and clear skies, who
woulda thunk?
Yet those were the conditions
as 61 two-angler teams took to
the backcountry out of the
Lorelei in Islamorada. The reason
for the support? Well, you have to
look deeper into the Swamp
Guides for that.
The benefit organization in
this prestige tournament is the
Don Hawley Foundation. The
foundation, in turn, puts money
right back to benefiting guides of
the Florida Keys in need.
In the Swamp Guides, charter
guides are allowed to fish as
anglers, which is not the norm in
most flats tourneys. In essence,
they are supporting themselves
and having fun while doing just
that. If a charter flats guide ever
hits a rough patch or suffers an
injury that cause them not to be
able to earn income, the Don
Hawley Foundation is there.
The Swamp Guides is not every
guide singing "Kumbaya" while
holding hands. Far from it. It is a
serious competition where the idea


h day fo

T ra mn is to catch a
ou bonefish,
redfish and
snook, all
measuring
over 20
inches. The
total num-
ber of fish
while com-
pleting the
trifecta
deems the
winner.
Cal Sutphin E a s y ?
Possibly,
minus that pesky bonefish.
That fish usually poses the
biggest snag for competing teams
due to colder water temps and
overcast skies, but again, that was
the past and Saturday's condi-
tions were more conducive to the
gray ghost.
Only six teams did complete
the redfish, snook and bonefish
trifecta, with the winning team of
Mark Cockerham of Islamorada
and Capt. Mark Gilman of
Tavernier catching one bonefish,
five redfish and five snook to take
Grand Champion honors.
"We had a great start back in
[Everglades National Park] with
a red and a snook and decided
since it was getting prettier by the
hour to head back to Islamorada
to bonefish at 10," Gilman says.
"We found some bonefish on
what we feel is a good warmup
spot and I saw something I don't
see very often: A school of bone-
fish sunning themselves in 5 feet
of water.
"Their fins- were sticking out


r guides

of the water and if was difficult to
get them to eat. Then after 45
minutes, a flip switched and they
started mudding. We got one to
eat around 12:20, with Mark
doing a great job and decided
after that fish to give up bonefish-
ing and run back to Flamingo. We
rounded out the day catching
three more reds and snook.
"I love this tournament."
Rounding out the top teams
were first runners-up Tony Wells
of Coral Springs and Dave Pratt
of Coconut Creek with one bone-
fish, five redfish and two snook.
Second runners-up with four
bonefish, one redfish and two
snook, winning on time, were
Capt. Rick Miller from
Islamorada and Stacey Telenzak
of Delray Beach guided by Capt.
Robert Klein of Islamorada.
Fishing was good overall,
Capt. Lain Goodwin of Key
Largo says.
"We caught dozens of snook
but unfortunately none made the
20-inch minimum. A lot meas-
ured out at 18 to 19.5 inches. Go
figure."
A total of 197 fish were caught
and released that met the mini-
mum length of 20 inches (13
bonefish, 81 redfish and 103-
snook). It's estimated the Swamp
Guides Ball will net more than
$25,000 for the Don Hawley
Foundation, according to Rusty
Albury, tournament director.

Keys Fishing


Wednesday, January 30,2008 29.


Trout action
also kicks up
in Florida Bay

Can you believe we're already
a month into the new year? Yet
what a month it's been for fishing.
We've had our times of bad
weather, cold weather and beauti-
ful days, with the fishing staying
good throughout on those days
we could go out. It's been one of
the best months for yellowtail
fishing on record, with not only
numerous fish but also excellent-
sized fish to boot.
One of the keys to success has
been those who could adapt to
different locations. One day they
would be in deep water hitting
good and the next may have been
in 20 feet or less. Anglers forget
they have tails and can move at
will. Yellowtail has not been the
only species that's been running
rampant.
Mutton snapper have made a
huge comeback from prior years'
numbers, at least according to the
catch reports that I've seen. One
of the most promising aspects of
the mutton fishing I have noticed
has been the number of smaller
fish that have been around.
I know when you catch a nice-
sized mutton, say 12 to, 15 inches,
you are disappointed you cannot
keep it because it's still, under the
16-inch minimum. The fact of the


matter is,
C u wwe have
been catch-
ing so
many of
these just-
AM undersized
fish -
which was
not the case
just a few
years ago.
This
bodes well
Dave Navarro for the very
near future.
If we release them properly with-
out much injury, they will be big
enough to keep in a very short
time.
We will cover fishing for all
types of snapper at this week's
free fishing seminar at our Marine
Educational Center, mile marker
50 bayside, at 6 p.m. Thursday.
When it comes to just short on
the size of a fish, the same can be
said for the grouper fishery. I hear
so many anglers talk about the
grouper they caught that was just
under the limit (by the way, you
cannot stretch them out even by
stepping on them. I know, I've
tried). They are what they are but
you know what? In a short time,
those fish will be legal size and you
will have more than stories to tell.
In recent weeks, I've heard of
quite a few good-sized grouper
coming in on many anglers'
boats. The action along the deep


edge of the reef has been good for
fish you would not even have to
think about measuring. Working
the patch reefs this month has
been'very good on either the drift
or slow troll for numerous black
and gag grouper.
The reverse problem has been
common in the bay with both
trout and redfish. Me and quite a
few anglers I have spoken with
have had trouble finding either of
those species small enough to be
able to keep. Both have a slot of
sizes that regulate them. There
has been quite an influx of both
noticeable in the outer bay waters
in the tall grass.
Finding a trout that would fit
under the maximum size was
impossible on a trip just a few
days; there were more than 40
caught. It was fun to catch such
big trout but hard to explain to the
anglers that it Was too big to keep.
On the same trip, of the five
redfish caught, none were small
enough (isn't it amazing how a
fisherman can always find some-
thing to complain about?).
Bay waters are also covered
with mackerel, particularly in the
outer bay waters more than 7
miles out. Good numbers along

&c


with nice-sized fish abound.
Having enough bait and hooks are
key to this fishery.
There are still many that think
mackerel are on my payroll, the
way they take so much tackle
from anglers. I love the action
though. It is something when you
hit the water with a bait, lure or
just about anything you want and
have a fish on within seconds.
You can't even do that in one of
those trout fishponds. Plus, you
don't know for sure just what you
may end up with in the bay.
The most consistent fishery
remains the bridge channels for
plenty of action as well as a good


catch of eating fish almost a given
on a daily basis.
Fishing these channels to their ._v r"
fullest potential is something that
is not as simple as it may look.
Knowing where and when to fish
a particular spot is something that
comes with time and the willing-
ness to move around. These chan-
nels can save you on a slow. day
elsewhere, as well as provide a ..,r
good place to fish on those bad-
weather days.
