Gov. Charlie Crist released
his recommended state budget
Thursday, and it includes $5 mil-
lion for Keys sewers.
But that doesn't mean much
if last year is any measure.
Last year, Crist recommended
$20 million for Keys wastewater


Height


rule may


change

Waterfront law
would measure
from water level
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Com-
mission meets Monday to take
up a new version of an ordinance
designed to protect working
waterfronts.
But one commissioner says he
can't support a provision that
would allow developers to build
above the county's maximum
height limit of 35 feet.
"The big issue that 1 have is
that I'm not voting for anything
that says you can build above 35
feet," Commissioner George
Neugent said.
The commission meets
Monday beginning at 3 p.m. at
the Harvey Government Center
in Key West for a public hearing
on the ordinance. It's televised on
Comcast Cable Channel 76.
The waterfront ordinance is
an effort to preserve commercial
fishing, traditional water-based
uses and public access to the
water.

No votes on dissolution


Saunders: Now

By RYAN McCARTHY
rniccairtliy@keynoler.comn

Efforts to dissolve both the
city of Marathon and village of
Islamorada took a blow Wcdnes-


day when state Rep. Ron
Saunders announced at a county-
wide sewer summit he would not
sponsor bills to dissolve the
municipalities.
Saunders said that with
Amendment 1 passing Tuesday,
local government budgets will
suffer and "you couldn't pick a
worse time" to ask Monroe


County to absorb the two munic-
ipalities. Islamorada incorporated
in 1997, Marathon in 1999.
Amendment 1 increases the
homestead exemption from
$25,000 to $50.000, allows the
transfer of homestead-exemption
tax savings to new homes (with
some limits), caps annual assess-
ment increases on non-home-

2 accused in
separate slaying
of two women
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kw\vadlow@keynoter.coln

Two men charged with unre-
lated domestic murders in the
Upper Keys last summer both are
slated to face preliminary hear-
ings March 4.
Both men remain in custody in
the Monroe County Detention
Center on Stock Island.
The docket-sounding hearings
will take place in the Upper Keys.
but the defendants - Manuel
Prieto Arenas, 47, and Andrew
Beckner, 43 - may appear
before the judge via a video link.
said J. Jefferson Overby, chief
assistant prosecutor for Monroe
County State Attorney Mark
Kohl.
Arenas reportedly shot Maria
Elena Proenza, 39, numerous
times following a loud domestic
dispute at 7:15 a.m. July 6 on
Hibiscus Lane in Key Largo. The
two reportedly had argued about
ownership of a trailer.
Arenas is accused of follow-
ing her to Hibiscus Lane, at mile


marker 101.3. and shooting her.
Prieto's mother saw the shooting.
according to witnesses.
Arenas was the subject of a
daylong manhunt but at dusk, he
walked into the Plantation Key
Sheriff's Office substation to sur-
render.


Monroe
County's fourth
murder of 2007
- that of
Edward Bozarth,
62 - remains
unsolved.


Beckner surrendered Aug. 24
after an hours-long standoff in the
Silver Shores community, near
mile marker 96 on Key Largo.
His girlfriend, Georgia
Morgan. 46. was found shot to
death in a residence at the over-
55 community.
Beckner, 42, also is accused of
firing shots at deputies arriving at
the scene after a 911 call at 7:30


a.m. No one else was hit.
lie sillurrendered following a
six-hour standoff as officers stir-
rounded the home. Beckner had
several previous arrests, includ-
ing for domestic battery on
Morgan.
Leroy Ashley. 20, the defen-
dant in a Key West killing in
January 2007, faces a court
appearance in April. He remains
in the local jail.
Ashley, a Florida City resi-
dent, is accused of stabbing
Patrick Jones. 26, during an inci-
dent in Bahama Village. Jones
died of a stab wound to the throat.
Cause of the dispute was
unclear. Ashley fled the scene but
was apprehended a few blocks
away.
Ashley reportedly has prior
convictions for armed robbery
and battery in Miami-Dade
County.
Monroe County's fourth mur-
der of 2007 - that of Edward
Bozarth. 62 - remains unsolved.
His body was found in July
aboard his liveaboard boat at
Gilbert's Marina on Jewfish
Creek. He had been bludgeoned
to death several days prior, an
autopsy showed. A Sheriff's
Office spokeswoman said there
have been no recent develop-
ments in the case.


Height limit to be exceeded?


WATERFRONT / From I

The County Commission
approved it in September, but the
state Department of Community
Affairs objected some aspects of
the original draft and sent it back
to the county for revision in
December.
The proposed law was
revamped to do away with terms
and phrases that both DCA and
the South Florida Regional
Planning Council found vague.
The section Neugent objects
to, however, was part of the orig-
inal ordinance.
It says, "Building height shall
be measured from the base flood
elevation," language that makes
the 35-foot height limit more
flexible than the current rules,
which measure building height
from ground level.
- "By startia'g at base flood
level, you cou '.start measuring
anvw\tlr.c.e from 9 to !2 feet above


ground level," Neugent said.
Growth Management Director
Andrew Trivette said staffers had
questioned the language early in
the process, but explains that
since it was approved as is by the
commission in September, staff
would not take it out.
"The DCA did not object to
that language because it's a coun-
ty height restriction," he said.
adding that the commission can
change it at Monday's meeting if
it so desires.
The revisions in the ordinance
reflect a number of changes
sought by a group of developers
who recently bought up much of
the Stock Island waterfront. That
group, New Stock Island
Properties, envisions a new and
vital fisherman's wharf with
commercial fishing, a boatyard,
restaurants, a hotel and some
upscale housing. Their vision
includes a boardwalk connecting
it all, according to one of tihe.
ow:e''s. Charlie Reoier.


"I'm concerned that this is just
turning into a development
approval for Stock Island,"
Neugent said of the ordinance.
The new ordinance does, in
fact, outline the role Stock
Island's deep-water port would
play if a hurricane hits the Keys.
"Such emergency ports will
require lodging for the operators
and users of such emergency
ports," it reads.
Trivette acknowledges that
some of the proposal is specific
but says "there's also the overar-
ching concepts that will affect all
working waterfronts."
Renier, a longtime Keys resi-
dent and fishhouse owner, says
his group hopes to retain tradi-
tional water-related uses so future
generations can enjoy the Keys
fishing tradition.
"We're trying to keep what
everyone in the Keys wants
instead of having somebody buy
..it, build condos and totally fence
i! of.'" he said.


Electrocution
reported Friday

A person was electrocuted
Friday on Conch Key in Coral
Key Village but few details
were available at press time.
Callers to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office at
1:42 p.m. were not clear in
their descriptions of what
happened, Deputy Becky
Herrin said.
The Sheriff's Office
TraumaStar helicopter was
requested and landed at the
south end of the Long Key
Bridge, picking up the victim
and flying the victim to
Miami for treatment.




There currently are no
beaches with health advi-
sories or warnings against

Three Lower Keys men face
felony trap-robbing charges
after a law-enforcement pilot
spotted suspicious activity off
Sugarloaf Key on Wednesday.
All three were aboard the
commercial boat Kavla Rencee
II.
Each man - Harry Bethel.
46, of Big Coppitt Key: and
Lawrence Pinder. 57. and
Shamus Davis. 29. both of Key
West - faces two felony
counts of molesting a lobster
trap.
Traps belonging to two other
fishermen were pulled by the
Kayla Renee II crew, said offi-
cers with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission. FWC pilot John
Murphy spotted the boat work-
ing near Maryland Shoal.
oceanside of the Keys.
Commercial lobster boats
must display license numbers
and buoy colors of the traps
they are working. Each trap has
a license number.
"This is a very difficult type
of case to make," FWC Officer


Bobby Dube said. "You almost
literally have to catch them red-'
handed, and they can usually
see you coming."
"In this case, they apparent-
ly didn't look up" to see the air-
plane, he added.
Officers Jimmy Johnson and
Seth Wingard reached the scene
on the water, and confirmed the
traps did not belong to anyone
on the boat. Two traps, each
belonging to a different fisher-
man, were taken into custody
as evidence.
The case is believed to be
the first arrest on trap-robbing
charges in 2008.
Commercial fishermen sus-
pect rampant trap robbing is a
significant contributor to lower
annual harvests reported in
recent years.
Before his Wednesday arrest,
Bethel already was facing trou-
ble with the law. He's accused
of arson and manufacturing a
firebomb stemming from an
incident last year. The case is
pending in Circuit Court with a
tentative trial date of March 17.

steaded properties, and gives a
$25,000 exemption to businesses.
"I think he made a good point
[that] if people really want to put
it on the ballot, there are clear
ways to make that happen. If peo-
ple still believe it should be on
the ballot, they can do a petition
drive and get it put on there,"
Marathon Vice Mayor Chris Bull
said. "It should be done locally
and not up in Tallahassee."
In Marathon, Sally Buehler is
heading the effort to unincorpo-
rate. Buelher was attempting to
have Saunders sponsor a bill at
the state level to dissolve the city.
Bull explained the city allows
90 days for a registered petition
to gather the necessary amount of
signatures to have a referendum
put on the local ballot.
'"If they have the correct num-
ber and it's validated, it gets on,"
Bull said. He said he feels the
issue should be handled locally.
"There's a lot of circumstan-
tial evidence that this is the will
of a large number of people. If
they have a problem with certain
issues, come to the meetings or
contact council members or the
city manager," Bull said.
Councilman Don Vasil said he
applauds Saunders' decision to
let municipalities decide their
own fate.
"I think the status of city gov-
emrnment has changed since the
movement started and I'd be sur-
prised if it moves forward now


that [Saunders] made the deci-
sion to leave it in the hands of the
city," Vasil said.
Councilman Mike Cinque
said he doesn't feel Buelher's
effort qualifies as a movement.
"I hear the word movement,
but I think it was just one dis-
gruntled person," Cinque said. "I
don't see a big wave of people
who want to go back to the coun-
ty, especially right now. The
county is in trouble and every-
body knows it."
Meanwhile, Buelher said she
already has a "plan B" in place to
pursue her goal. She declined to
elaborate.
"Voters are going to decide, I
can't and the city can't.
Everybody registered to vote has
the right to make that decision,"
Buelher said.
Buelher took exception to
comments made by Marathon
Mayor Pete Worthington at a
recent County Commission
meeting. Worthington said he had
a copy of a petition Buelher had
gathered for Saunders that was
three years old.
"That couldn't be true because
I've only been working on this
for a year. Those petitions are all
signed over the course of a year;
they're dated and signed by regis-
tered voters," she said.
Regardless, the petitions
would not meet city requirements
because they have not been gath-
ered within 90 days.
Robert Page, leading the effort
to dissolve Islamorada, could not
be reached for comment.

Opinion


Saunders delivers

the cold, hard facts

Setting expectations can be a difficult job for public office
holders.
Just how hard was on full display Wednesday night at a sewer
summit convened by state Rep. Ron Saunders at the Marathon
Government Center.
Gathered was a who's-who of public officials and hired staff
representing virtually every local municipality, the county, plus
representatives from our largest public utility, the Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority. And of course, the Key Largo Wastewater
Treatment District.
First off, gadfly Kay Thacker wanted to know why a legisla-
tive bill to expand the powers of the Key Largo sewer utility
had not been heard in Key Largo and instead in Marathon.
Earlier she'd sent a blizzard of e-mails and the room was
packed with folks from Key Largo and Tavernier.
Saunders found himself the victim of a near filibuster as
Thacker kept firing questions directed at Thomas Dillon,
wastewater district attorney, among those gathered for the
sewer summit.
After nearly the entire 30 minutes allotted for legislative bills
was taken up with this business, Saunders had to race through
discussion on the issue of dissolving Marathon and Islamorada.
He told sponsors the petitions they gathered to get a vote to
unincorporated the cities "are no longer valid." And he said all
city and county budgets are going to be strapped for money
now that Amendment 1, the property tax reform, passed.
With the county already struggling over spending woes of its,
own, he said, this is not the time to be adding any obligations
from Marathon and Islamorada onto the county's plate.
So no bills filed to vote whether to unincorporated. Literally,
there was no reaction from the standing-room-only crowd.
The next 90 minutes focused on sewers and how to finance a
$336 million shortfall to finish Keys wastewater projects.
Be realistic, Saunders told folks, don't expect any money
from the feds and not much from the state, at least this year.
All hopes now rest on getting the state to approve a mega
bond issue. And, again being candid, that's not the same as get-
ting state or federal grants.
Bonds are pledges and have to be repaid. And users of those
sewer systems will be the ones who pay, whether it's in small
increments over the next 40 years or a larger hookup fee up
front, or some combination of both.
But pay we will.
That kind of candid talk from public officials is rare these
days.
We expect we'll be hearing more of this as the full impact of
the coming budget crunch hits home.

NAS Key West neighbors are 'highly annoyed'


EDITOR:
While listening to a discussion of U.S.
Navy jet noise at Sen. Bill Nelson's town-hall
meeting in Key West, I was intrigued to hear
speakers with such heartfelt yet different
views about the sounds of freedom. I decided
to take a closer look at Naval Air Station Key
West's Air Installation Compatibility Use
Zone, or AICUZ. document.
The 1977 AICUZ shows that only a clip-
ping off the fingernail of south Stock Island
was included in the footprint. The property
included was a portion of Peninsular Marine.
None of Oceanside Marina was included.
Nothing on either side of Maloney was
included. Harbor Shores was not included.
The footprint for the new AICUZ now
includes Boyd's Campground and everything
south on Maloney. All of Harbor Shores and
Oceanside Marina are included, as is Safe
Harbor.
The AICUZ says that a single fighter jet
flying overhead producing 100 decibels will
raise the background noise 50 dBA. Noise
from this single event (a rise from 50 to 100
decibels) is 32 times louder than the back-
ground noise before the jet flew over. An


AICUZ table describes how these changes in
dBA will be perceived.
A 10 dBA increase (two times as loud) is a
"dramatic change" in perceived loudness." A
20 dBA increase (four times as loud) is a
"striking change" in perceived loudness." The
table does not go on to describe how a 50
dBA increase (32 times as loud) will be per-
ceived.
Another table in the AICUZ describes the
"influence of sound levels on annoyance."
Looking at the new footprint, this table pre-
dicts that 20 percent of the Harbor Shores res-
idents and 35 percent of the Oceanside resi-
dents are going to be "highly annoyed" by the
noise. In fact, 12 percent to 14 percent of the
remainder of Stock Island that is now includ-
ed in the AICUZ footprint will also be "highly
annoyed."
The Navy introduced this new AICUZ as
no big change, not really a significant impact.
Ironically, the AICUZ projections are coming
true. A fair number of south Stock Islanders
have perceived a "dramatic change" in jet
noise and are now "highly annoyed."

thanks village

EDITOR:
I am writing to express my gratitude to all
those who have supported me during my
tenure as village manager in Islamorada.
While I leave village government with mixed
feelings, I am grateful to the Village Council
and community for the opportunity to serve
Islamorada. I have met many wonderful peo-
ple over the past two and a half years and it
has been my privilege to serve in this capacity.
Islamorada is a great. vibrant and wonderful
community and I believe the best is yet to
come. I leave a dedicated staff that is commit-
ted to public service. They are often not appre-
ciated, but I am proud of their efforts and
accomplishments. I would urge all citizens to
support their local government in a positive
way. While not perfect, it remains dedicated to
solving local problems in a way reflective of
needs and preferences of its citizens.
Again, it has been my pleasure to serve the
Village Council and people of Islamorada. I
wish the community nothing but the very best.

Saunders breaks promise on dissolution vote Florida votes don't count?


EDITOR:
I am disappointed that state Rep.
Ron Saunders did not honor the conm-
mitment he made to me and Bob Page
from Islamorada many months ago
that he would write a referendum to
vote on whether to dissolve the city of
Marathon.
Mr. Saunders put the dissolution of
Marathon on the agenda of a special
County Commission budget meeting.
He tried to get the commission to
refuse to take on the city's debt..The
intent was to dump the decision on
the county but that didn't work.
Special taxing districts will be gener-
ated to address our debt if the city dis-
solves. It is the voters who decide the
issue, not the County Commission,
Marathon City Council or the city
manager.
One especially interesting fact I
witnessed at the budget meeting was
the appearance, in force, of the city
attorney, City manager Mike Puto,
three council persons and a very vocal
Realtor. When the agenda item came
up, Marathon Mayor Pete
Worthington made a speech that left
me in no doubt a deal had already
been made and he already knew


Saunders would not write the referen-
dum as he said he would. It was all so
obvious. This was one week before
the so-called official announcement.
The latest Saunders maneuver puts
the matter on the city of Marathon to
write the referendum. Is there anyone
in this community who believes the
city would write a referendum that
would give the voters a chance to dis-
solve the city'?
I've been ready with an alternate
plan when I realized Saunders was
stalling and it became clear he was
being controlled by those special
interests we all know about. My Plan
B will absolutely provide the voters in
Marathon the opportunity to decide
the issue.
A poll on the Kevnoter Web site
shows those in favor of dissolving the
city at 65 percent while those against
are at 35 percent. The total number of
voters as of Thursday afternoon was
619 voters.
Sally Buehler
Marathon

Editor's note: The Keynoter's
online poll is not a scientifically valid
surveIy ofCreadrs.


Saunders reversal is disheartening


EDITOR:
A Keynoter online poll reveals
that 65 percent of people voting
want the village of Islamorada and
city of Marathon to unincorporated
and go back under county control.
Thirty-five percent are satisfied and
want to stay under mismanagement
of the two municipalities.
If you count the municipal
employees and add a few citizen
advisory boards, plus the elected
officials, you can identify where the
35 percent comes from.
Islamorada, with a population of
fewer than 7,000 and fewer than
5,000 voters (18 miles long), has 103
full-time employees (one employee
for each 50 voters) and nine advisory
boards with almost 100 members.
You can quickly see where most of
that 35 percent comes from. I do not
know how many employees or citi-
zen advisory board members
Marathon has, but close to that same
number.
It was disturbing to learn that our
Democrat state representative, Ron
Saunders, has decided to ignore the
more than 1,000 petitions of regis-
tered voters of the two municipalities
to request a vote by referendum on
this issue. These petitions were gath-
ered at his urging, and now he says
they are no good.
Last year during election time, he
promised to introduce a bill in the


Legislature if there was voter sup-
port. It is now clear that Saunders
lied and does not care about voter
concerns and has failed to address
our high property taxes, high insur-
ance rates and the wild spending and
mismanagement by elected officials
of the two municipalities.
Rep. Saunders tried to make the
Monroe County Commission the bad
guys by asking it to say it did not
want to take these two municipalities
back under county management. The
five commissioners understood the
Florida Constitution and the state
law that addresses this issue and
refused to play his game. They said
this is an issue to be settled by the
taxpayers. It is not something one
elected state representative takes it
upon himself, to make a judgment
call on this important issue. This rep-
resentative has become worthless
and should be replaced by someone
who cares and is honest in his repre-
sentation.
Why did Rep. Saunders refuse to
simply offer this issue to the voters?
Is there some sinister back-door
agreement taking place? Are we
back to the old Key West bubba sys-
tem? After all, Ron Saunders is a
fifth-generation Conch and old
habits are hard'lo change.
Robert Page
Islamorada


Tell that to the candidates


Conventional wisdom.
Ah, if only those two words, placed
together, meant what we all think it does.
Too often, it proves meaningless, as
demonstrated in Tuesday's Florida pri-
mary.
Take the conventional wisdom about
Florida's election being only a beauty
contest because the Democratic
National Committee stripped Florida of
all its delegates and the Republicans
punished Florida by stripping half the
GOP delegates.
Well, turns out the record-breaking
vote may have done more than all the
other preceding contests to clarify the
front runners in both parties.
On the Republican ticket,
Florida proved to be a major I
test of John McCain's ability
to poll strongly in a closed
primary state - where
crossover votes by
Democrats and independents
couldn't help this GOP mav-
erick as it did in open pri-
mary states.
McCain beat the better-
financed Mitt Romney camn-
paign 36 percent to 31 percent. '
And he did it by out-polling
his opponents among young Wayne
people (18 to 29). Not bad Keynote
for a Vietnam War hero who
will be 72 if elected president
- oldest in the nation's history.
On the Democratic ticket. Hillary
Clinton took 50 percent of the statewide
vote, leaving Barack Obama with 33
percent and John Edwards at 14 percent.
Wednesday, Edwards made the
announcement from New Orleans that
he was quitting the race for president.
Lter that same day. so did former New
York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
And Florida's vote was meaningless?
TV pundits were quick to point out
that more Democrats voted in Florida's
primary than voted in Iowa, New
Hampshire. Nevada and South Carolina
- combined.
Meaningless?
Of course, as Florida returns came in
Tuesday night, Obama was in Denver
campaigning for the Feb. 5 Super
Tuesday primaries. At the same time.
Hillary launched her victory rally in
Davie, deep in the heart of Florida's
most consistently Democratic county -
Broward.
Don't think that won't be remembered
by Florida Democrats.
For Obama, Florida-proved a water-
shed of another type.
He did not do well among Hispanics.
Clinton finished with a 2:1 lead over


Obama among Hispanic voters. And
surprise, surprise, McCain did even bet-
ter among Hispanic voters, with nearly
a 3:1 margin over Romney.
In Florida, the perception of the
Hispanic vote has been shaped for
decades by the dominant voice of
Miami-Dade's Cuban-American bloc,
which has voted solidly Republican,
especially in national races.
In Central Florida, across the 1-4 cor-
ridor and particularly in the Tampa Bay
area, most Hispanics hail from other
countries and vote more Democratic,
mirroring Hispanic voting patterns seen
in big delegate states like Texas,
California, New York, New Jersey.
So perhaps Florida pro-
vides a warning bell for the
Obama campaign, and a bit
of bragging rights for
Clinton's camp. as they both
hurtle toward the Feb. 5
Super Tuesday showdown.
There were other "conven-
tional wisdoms" shattered by
Florida voters this week.
Take the outcome of
Amendment 1. the property
L u tax package widely predicted
to fall short of the 60 percent
/larkham majority needed for passage.
Publisher A highly visible campaign
by Gov. Charlie Crist push-
ing for a "yes" vote is credit-
ed with making a difference.
The amendment passed with 64.1 per-
cent in favor.
Some even believe that Crist's last-
minute endorsement of McCain. in tan-
dem with U.S. Sen. Mel Martinez's
endorsement, made a big difference in
the Arizona senator's win over Romney.
Exit polling done for CNN found
some absolutely amazing patterns that
defy the pre-primary forecasts.
On the issue of religion and the role it
plays in the voting booth. Florida pro-
duced surprises, especially in the
Republican contests.
Based on those exit poll's. Romney
managed only a 3 percent advantage
over McCain among Republican voters
who described their church attendance
as weekly.
And McCain actually out-polled
Romney among Republicans inter-
viewed who defined their church going
as "occasional" and a 13 point lead
among those who said they "never"
attend church.
Florida may be meaningless in the
eyes of the poobahs who run the nation-
al party apparatus, but the message sent
by Florida voters may have set the stage
for a defining Super Tuesday after all.

ered in that order if any finalists
withdraw their applications.
Fields, Gestrich and
Stampfler have also applied to
be Monroe County administrator
to take the place of Tom Willi,
whom the County Commission
fired in December.
The Village Council asked
the Human Resources
Department to schedule the
finalists for interviews and an
open visit with the community
during the third week in
February.
The council voted 3-2 to
allow a range of $150.000 to
$200.000 for the new manager's
compensation package. which


includes salary and benefits.
Council members Don
Achenherg and Michael
Reckwerdt voted against the
range, saying it's too high.
Achenberg said the top 15
candidates' current salaries aver-
age only about $105,000 but that
he isn't sure if that average
includes benefits.
Mayor Dave Boerner said
Islamorada is competing with
Monroe County for certain can-
didates, and that the steep cost of
living in the Keys warrants a
higher pay scale
"It's a tool," Councilman
Chris Sante said of the broad
bargaining range.
"Use a cheaper tool,"
Reckwerdt said. "People are
very concerned with the spend-
ing in government. They want
the best anthehey want it as inex-
pensively as possible." .
Word's annual. package
totaled $220,495, which includ-
ed $115,000 salary. a $6,000
auto allowance. $32.400 housing
allowance and a 25 percent


retirement contribution.
The meeting coincided with
Word's final day as manager.
"I'd like to thank Gary for
everything he's done over the
last two years and for his profes-
sionalism," Boerner said. He
presented Word with a fishing
pole as a token of his service to
Islamorada.
Council. members asked for
Word's input on the search
process, which he offered only
sparingly throughout the meet-
ing.
Word said the council "would
be wise" to spend a good deal of
time with each candidate and
their spouses, and that a broad
compensation range allows flex-
ibility to discuss options with
each candidate.
Deputy manager and
Planning Department Director
Ed Koconis has taken over
Word's duties until a new man-
ager is hired.
Word is one of five finalists
for the manager position in Dade
City in eastern Pasco County.

Cape Coral man
charged with threats

A Cape Coral man who's a
citizen of Trinidad/Tobago was
jailed Thursday for allegedly
making two separate bomb
threats in Marathon.
The Monroe County Sheriff's
Office says Marchelle Andrews.
20, first called dispatchers Jan.
14. giving his name as "Albert"
and saying a bomb was at the
Marlin Bay Yacht Club construc-
tion site on 39th Street.
Thursday, another threat wvas
called in, from a pay phone at
Fairway Market - one block
away from Marlin Bay. Sgt.
Dennis Cain and a Border Patrol
officer were close and responded
- catching Andrews as he
walked away from the phone,
deputies say.
He was charged with making
a bomb threat and with misuse of
the 911 system.
Deputies say Andrews works
at Marlin Bay and reportedly said
he made the threats because he
was owed money. Both threats
resulted in the work site being
evacuated so a bomb search
could he conducted.

Priority list is approved


SEWERS / From I

why we have to go the bonding
route," Saunders said. "We can't
worry each year whether it's a
good or a bad year for the state
budget."
"Every amount is appreciat-
ed and will be put to good use,"
said Jim Reynolds, executive
director of the Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority, the entity
responsible for overseeing con-
struction of sewer facilities in
unincorporated Monroe County
except for Key Largo.
Saunders on Wednesday
convened another of his sewer
summits, calling all Keys play-
ers together to prioritize proj-
ects.
In a Jan. 15 letter to county
Mayor Sonny McCoy, state
Rep. Stan Mayfield told the
county it needs "a single com-
prehensive plan identifying
existing and proposed projects,
including a priority sequencing
projects..." Mayfield chairs the
House Environment & Natural
Resources Council and the
Legislative Budget Commis-
sion.
The list approved at the


Marathon meeting Wednesday
is based upon so-called sewage
hot spots, Reynolds said.
"The worst is first," he said.
"This list is exactly what
Mayfield asked for. It's based
on the Keys wastewater master
plan that was adopted several
years ago."
Reynolds echoed Saunders
and Di Gennaro, saying an
authorization for bonding
money is what's vital to get the
Keys sewered by 2010.
All of the Keys are under a
state mandate to install central
sewers by 2010. with the goal
of protecting water quality.
"I think everyone recognizes
there's no way all of the proj-
ects can be completed by
2010," Reynolds said. "But if
the Legislature approves a vehi-
cle for bonding, all of the proj-
ects could be started by 2010."
According to county Growth
Management Director Drew
Trivetle, the eight different
sewer authorities in Monroe
need to raise a combined $336
million to meet the mandate.
According to Trivelte, the over-
all cost of sewering the Keys
will eventually cost $937.6 mil-
lion.


County officials hope to see
some federal offset to that tab,
but Saunders says not to hold
their breath. Though Congress
allocated $100 million for Keys
sewers in 2000. less than $10
million of that has been appro-
priated over the years.
"I'm not optimistic we'll
ever see any of that money.,
Saunders said. "If we get it, it's
bonus money."

Two die in Marathon auto crash


They're third
and fourth '08
traffic deaths
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Florida Highway Patrol
is investigating circumstances
surrounding a crash in which
two people were killed and
another seriously injured
Tuesday at U.S. 1 and 91st
Street in Marathon.
According to the FHP, a
2006 Honda motorcycle driven
by 25-year-old Frank Cordova
collided with a 2007 Dodge
driven by 45-year-old


Charlene Works at 7:43 p.m.
Both Cordova and Works lived
in Marathon.
Works' passenger, 63-year-
old Ellen Martens, was airlift-
ed to Ryder Trauma Center at
Jackson Memorial Hospital in
Miami. FHP Lt. Pat Santangelo
said Martens sustained non-
life-threatening injuries.
The report states Works
attempted a turn in the path of
Cordova's motorcycle, causing
Cordova to collide with her
car. Santangelo said Works
was attempting to make a left
off 91st Street.
"The car pulled out and
when it was crossing the north-


bound lanes, the motorcycle
hit it in the driver side," he
said.
Santangelo said a trooper on
the scene reported Cordova
collided with Works in the area
of the driver on the car's left
side.
The report also states rescue
and Monroe County Sheriff's
Office personnel closed the
road for about four hours to
extricate and airlift Martens.
Santangelo said a detailed
30- to 60-day investigation
would be done to determine
the exact cause of the crash.
"We're reluctant to say who
is at fault at this point. We're
interviewing eyewitnesses,
analyzing evidence collected


at the scene and when the
investigation is complete,
they'll make a conclusion as to
who was at fault," he said.
Santangelo said the investi-
gation would determine
Cordova's rate of speed when
the accident occurred.
"There was no immediate
indication the motorcycle driv-
er was doing something


An offer's out
to Feagin but
no decision yet
By RYAN McCARTHY
mccarthy@keynoter.com


Less than three months
after leaving Monroe County
government to become the
city of Marathon's planning
director, Clarence Feagin has
reportedly been offered a
planning position with the
U.S. Navy.
Feagin, who was the coun-
ty's senior planner, took over
Marathon's top spot on Nov.
19 from Fred Gross. Gross
retired after little more than a
year on the job.
Marathon Human Resources
Director Susan Funk said no
decision has been made on the
offer and Feagin's city job is
not listed on the city's Web
site.
Feagin could not be
reached for comment Friday.
Marathon Mayor Pete
Worthington said Feagin has
been a valuable city employee
in his short tenure and that he
would like to see him stay on.
He said the city intends to
make a counter-offer to the


wrong," he said.
The report states alcohol
was not involved and that both
Works and Martens were wear-
ing seatbelts.
Cordova and Works were
the third and fourth fatalities
on Keys roads this year. There
were 24 traffic fatalities south
of Florida City in 2007.


Navy's proposal.
"We're looking at what it
would take to get him to stay.
He's a sharp guy and we're
very impressed with his
knowledge of land use and
zoning issues," Worthington
said. "I'd hate to see him go."
Feagin earned a master's
degree in planning from the
University of Texas at Austin
before, in 1995. earning a
Ph.D. in urban and regional
planning from Texas A&M
University. His doctoral
research on hurricane mitiga-
tion eventually led him to the
Keys.
Worthington said Feagin
has been offered a higher
salary at Naval Air Station
Key West, as well as a favor-
able housing situation. Funk
said Feagin was hired at
$72,000 by the city.
Former Marathon planning
director Gail Kenson, who left
for the same position in Key
West, recently accepted a
position with the Navy.
Kenson preceded Gross as
Marathon's planning director.
Feagin worked with the
state Department of
Environmental Protection
before moving to the county.

Saunders: More tax work to be done


He says 40%
of median value
is favorable
By ALYSON CREAN
acream@keynoter.com

The overwhelming support
Tuesday in South Florida for
property tax reform is a clear


indication residents are desperate
lor relief, state Rep. Ron
Saunders says.
"Taxes are already too high,"
Saunders said Wednesday on
"Keynoter News" on Comcast
Channel 5, "and the vote in
Monroe County reflected that.
People were desperate."
The statewide change to the


Constitution easily garnered the
60 percent approval from the vot-
etrs necessary to enact property
tax reform.
Amendment I doubles the
homestead exemption, caps prop-
erty taxes onl some commercial
properties and allows homeown-
ers to take their tax saving with
them when they buy a new home.
"A lot of legislators feel this
was the first step, " Saunders


said. "We need to go back to
Tallahassee and do minore."
On average, Saunders says,
Monroe County residents will see
an annual savings of about $120
with the reform.
The amendment doubles' the
existing homestead exemption
for primary residences to
$50,000, but Saunders says he
expects the Legislature to revisit
that.

A Florida International Uni-
- versity researcher is coming to
the Keys to give public presenta-
tions on his findings that housing
in the Florida Keys is, not sur-
prisingly, unaffordable.
Ned Murray, with the
Metropolitan Center at FlU.
found that:
* Single-family homes and
condos have increased in value
more than 100 percent the past
' six years.
* More than half of renters
are paying in excess of 30 per-
cent of their monthly income
toward housing, up from 42 per-
cent in 2000.
* The inventory of rental


housing has decreased 16 percent
since 2000 and the workforce
population (ages 20 to 54) has
decreased 14 percent since them.
His presentations, sponsored
by Leadership Monroe, are:
* 9 a.m. Feb. 11, lobby of the
Tennessee Williams Theater at
Florida Keys Community
College on Stock Island.
* 8:30 a.m. Feb. 15, Coral
Shores High School auditorium.
+ 8:30 a.m. Feb. 22, Key
Colony Beach City Hall
CDs of the full study will be
available at each briefing at a
minimal cost, as well as free
printed copies of the study sum-
mary.

the briefings, e-mail info@ leader

"What we need to look at is
perhaps a 40 percent of median
value cap instead," he said.
If the median home value in
Monroe County sits at $500,000,
a 40 percent cap would give a
homeowner a $200,000 tax
exemption rather than the
$50,000 under the current reform.
"That would give us a true
protection from these huge
increases we've seen the last
three or four years," he said.
The amendment also places a
10 percent cap on property taxes
for commercial properties. It's a
much-needed measure. Saunders
says, but he'd like it to come
down to 5 percent.
In addition, Saunders say he
hopes to co-sponsor legislation
that would include working
waterfront and affordable hous-
ing in the commercial cap. He
says those properties are assessed
at "the highest and best use."
meaning that property owners
have little incentive to retain less-
lucrative uses for their property.
"They should be taxes for the
actual use," he said.
Rollbacks in revenue resulting
from the tax reform won't be
easy, Saunders says.
"We have a $70 billion state
budget and we have to cut about
$2 billion of that," he said. "This
is probably a good time to reeval-
uate spending at the state level as
well as the local level."

Many cheer property tax reform vote


Keys voters
overwhelmingly
pass amendment
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbutrnie@keysreporter.com

Keys voters joined voters
statewide Tuesday in approv-
ing a property-tax reform
amendment to the state
Constitution.
Amendment 1 increases the
homestead exemption from
$25,000 to $50,000, allows the
'transfer of homestead-exemp-
tion tax savings to new homes


(with some limits), caps annual
assessment increases on non-
homesteaded properties, and
gives a $25,000 exemption to
businesses.
The amendment garnered
enough votes to surpass the 60
percent majority required for a
change to the state
Constitution.
More than 19,500 Keys vot-
ers responded to the question at
32 polling stations countywide.
About 71 percent voted yes,
compared to about 64 percent
approval statewide.
Poll worker Cameron


Duncan, who was stationed at
the Key Largo library, a polling
location for two precincts, said
voter turnout seemed "pretty
good."
Duncan and a fellow poll
worker said about 320 voters
had already cast their ballots at
the library by 1:30 p.m.
Key Largo voters Jose
Gandaria. Charlene Bennett
and Bill Costner all said they
voted in favor of the amend-
ment.
Costner called the amend-
ment "fantastic. It's excellent
that they're going to help
homeowners with the increase
in the homestead exemption.


Thank God for [Gov.] Charlie
Crist," he said.
Costner said rising taxes and
newly established sewer
assessments mean homeowners
are in need of relief offered by
the reform.
But self-proclaimed snow-
bird Matt McCool, who lives
six months of the year in New
Jersey and six months in the
Keys, said not all Florida
homeowners had a fair say in
whether the amendment
passed.
"Why couldn't you vote in
both places?" McCool said.
"You have just as much of an
interest down here as you do up


north."
McCool said he would have
voted in favor of the reform if
he'd had the chance.
Critics of the amendment
say it doesn't treat all taxpay-
ers fairly and that the state
needs a lower cap on non-
homestead commercial proper-
ties, which will be set at 10
percent per year compared to
the 3 percent cap on home-
steaded, residential property.
Additionally, some local
officials fear they'll have to
raise taxes to make up for lost
revenue from the new assess-
ment limit.


Keys voters OK flexible funding


By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.com

The Monroe County School
District cleared a major fund-
ing hurdle Tuesday when Keys
voters approved a flexible-
funding initiative that gives the
school district continued con-
trol over how it spends part of
its tax dollars.
A clear majority of voters -
about 76 percent - voted to
renew flexible funding, which
allows Keys public schools to
use tax revenue - a half-cent
per $1,000 of assessed proper-
ty value - for operations
instead of for construction.
School Board members said
they were elated.
"It's sort of overwhelming
to have such a definitive
result," board member Debra
Walker said. "Clearly our vot-
ers support the needs of kids
and see the value of educa-
tion."
Chairman Steve Pribramsky
said the majority vote demon-
strates continued public faith in
the board, despite a series of
"lively discussions between the
new School Board members
and the staff.
"People like the checks and
balances that are going on with
the School Board," he said,
"and they trust the School
Board to use this money in the
way that they said they would
use it."
Superintendent Randy
Acevedo said he's thankful to
voters, and also to newspapers,
radio stations, the Support


"and I don't want to be here
four years from now doing this
again, but that's the way the
law is, and we've got to do the
best we can within those limi-
tations."
Griffiths said flexible fund-
ing is essential to maintain
competitive teacher salaries.
"This gives us the ability to
increase the operations income
by something like $13.8 mil-
lion, and we lower the capital
fund by the same amount," he
said. "It gives us the total con-
trol of the total pot of money."


Keys Schools group and local
chambers of commerce, all of
which supported flexible fund-
ing and "helped get the word
out" that the initiative is criti-
cal to schools, but does not
raise taxes, he said.
Voters first approved flexi-
ble funding with a 66 percent
majority in 2004, but state law
requires it be put to a vote
every four years.
"I was ecstatic that voters
gave us the renewal," board
member Andy Griffiths said,

Bracing for continued weak-
ening in Florida's economy,
Gov. Charlie Crist proposed a
$70 billion state budget
Thursday that would boost
spending on programs to stim-
ulate business and count onl
reserves and gambling money
to get through the tough times.
The proposal to the
Legislature for the next budget
year, which begins July 1, is
,,sto' million below current
spending even after the
Legislature slashed it by $1.1
billion in October due to
declining tax revenues.
The budget includes spend-
ing cuts for most state agen-
cies, but would allocate more
money for children's health
insurance, energy diversity
programs and 1,331 new full-
time state jobs - most of them
to staff new prisons.
To balance the budget. Crist
wants to tap $1.1 billion from
the state's reserves, including
unspent money from trust
funds normally earmarked for
specified purposes. and he has
proposed increasing fines on
overweight trucks to bring in
an estimated $34 million.
He also wants to use one-
time revenue dollars to pay for
continuing expenses that's
slightly in excess of a 3 percent
constitutional cap, which
would have to be waived by the
Legislature.
S Budget writers in the
Republican-controlled
Legislature were cool to some
of the GOP governor's ideas.
"The House believes that
I thoughtful spending reductions
Should best serve Florida's
long-term, not tax increases,
accounting transfers, or a new
reliance on one-time or stag-
nant revenue sources," said
House Budget Chairman Ray
Sansom, R-Destin.
Sansom said the state should
"continue the practice of main-
taming the state's reserves
because it is fiscally prudent to


Some call it
unrealistic,
not doable
Associated Press


's News


Keynoter


be prepared in case of hurri-
canes and other emergencies."
Senate Fiscal Policy
Chairwoman Lisa Carlton, R-
Osprey, said Crist's proposal is
just one of many pieces of
information that lawmakers
will use to build the state's new
budget.
She said the most significant
will be a revenue estimate
update that state economists
are due to make in March.
Crist's budget proposal is
based on a November estimate,
which has proven to be overly
optimistic.
The ever-optimistic Crist
said he expects the state's rev-
enue picture to improve with
voter approval of a property
tax-cutting proposal two days
earlier.
Crist two weeks ago
released the education portion
of his budget. It includes $138
million to offset property taxes
that school districts are expect-
ed to lose because of
Amendment 1.
"While I think it may be
more of a faith-based budget
than one grounded in reality, at
least the governor recognizes
that Florida can't sustain mas-
sive cuts to education, health
care and public security." said
House Democratic Leader Dan
Gelber of Miami Beach.
Gelber blamed Florida's
revenue fix on a decade of "tax
giveaways for special inter-
ests" and the Legislature's fail-
ure to broaden the state's tax
base.
Crist's proposal also relies
on $130 million from the
state's recent deal with the
Seminole Indians for casino
revenues although a legal chal-
lenge is pending in the Florida
Supreme Court.
The Florida House has sued
Crist, contending the deal is
unconstitutional because it has-
n't been approved by the
Legislature. House leaders
have spoken out against
expanded Indian gambling.
The governor's spending
plan would continue the sales
tax holidays on back-to-school
items and hurricane prepared-
ness purchases.

spokesman Bobby Dube said one
of the men sustained minor
injuries, while the other suffered
head and facial trauma. Both
were airlifted to Jackson
Memorial Hospital in Miami.
The pilot has been identified
as David Hamerick and the pas-
senger as Donald May. Dube said
the plane was registered to
Waverunner Aviation out of
Graham. N.C.
Dube said the plane had taken
off from Florida Keys Marathon
Airport and that it was unknown
how long the two men had been
flying or their final destination.
According to a U.S. Coast
Guard report. the agency
responded to a 5 p.m. call that a
plane crashed and at 5:15
received a call from a commer-
cial salvage vessel reporting a
small single-engine plane had
crashed and that a good
Samaritan \was at the scene assist-
ing the two men on board.
"They were brought in by a
commercial crawfish boat out
there in the area," Dube said.
The Coast Guard report says it
responded to the calls by sending
a small boat from Coast Guard
Station Marathon to assist the
fishermen.
The report states the boat
arrived on scene and took
I lamecrick and May back to the
slalion. where Emiergencv
Medical Services were \ wailing.


Dube said the cause of the
crash is under investigation, but
was likely due to engine failure.
He said the plane crashed in 15
feet of water.
"'There has been no reports of
any distress calls, but that doesn't
mean they [didn't make one].


Last month,
two small
planes
crashed in
the Keys, with
passengers
aboard both
receiving
minor injuries.


Marathon airport doesn't have air
traffic control.... Lucky for them,
the boat was out there and saw
them," Dubo said.
The cause of the crash is under
investigation by the Federal
Aviation Administration and
National Transportation Safety
Board.
Last month, two small planes
crashed in the Keys, with passen-
gers aboard both receiving minor
injuries. One crash was off
Marailon. tihe other off Key
Si:i'ro.

Man arrested
on arson counts

A Marathon man was
jailed Friday morning shortly
after he allegedly started three
fires in New Town Key West.
Robert Dewitt, 30, is
charged with two counts of
arson and one count of crimi-
nal mischief for the incidents,
which started around 5:43 a.m.
Spokeswoman Christie
Phillips said police and fire-
fighters were called to the
3100 block of Northside
Drive on reports of a fire
under a building. At 5:51
a.m., dispatch was notified of
another fire at a dumpster in
the 3000 block of North
Roosevelt Boulevard. At 6:13
a.m., another fire was report-
ed in a city pickup truck
parked at Wickers Field.


Coleman ends contract with county


Outside counsel
earned $445,000
since 2005
By ALYSON CREAN
iacrealn@keynoter.comn

Jerry Coleman no longer
works for Monroe County.
The attorney, who has
advised the county on afford-
able housing since 2005,
ended his contract Thursday.
"The county has budget
constraints that everyone is
aware of," Coleman told the
Keynoter. "'Everybody has to
share the pain here, program
wise."
Monroe County is in the
midst of some serious budget
cuts, seeking to shave some $4
million off the current year's
expenses. In December,
County Commissioner Sylvia


Murphy suggested the county
end its contract with Coleman
in light of the budget crunch.
Instead, at the suggestion of
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton, the commission
agreed to reign in the expenses
by seeing to it that Coleman
address only affordable hous-
ing issues.
In addition, Commissioner
Mario Di Gennaro said
Coleman agreed to keep his
fee at $350 an hour. Previously
the commission had approved
a rate hike, effective at the
beginning of the year, that
allowed Coleman to collect
$500 an hour for his work.
Since Coleman began work-
ing for the county, he has been
paid $444,971. In addition, the
county has received invoices
for November and December
totaling nearly $19,000 that


have yet to be paid.-
"I understand that the coun-
ty has budget constraints,"
said John Dolan-Heitlinger, a
member of the county's
Workforce Housing Task
Force. "But I am concerned
that once we run through the
fine work [Coleman] has done
with drafting ordinances, we
won't have someone with his
expertise to keep the momen-
tum."
"There are 700 affordable
units built or in the process of
being built," task force mem-
ber Ed Swift told the County
Commission at a December
meeting. "If we did not have
someone focused on that issue
as outside counsel, we would
not be where we are today."
Coleman has come under
fire for his fees and for advis-
ing county officials on issues
ranging outside of his con-
tract. His itemized bills have


rankled some residents.
Expensive phone calls
addressing issues like jet noise
and land use have been among
his bills.
Though Coleman's bills
have been controversial, his
work has been praised across
the board.
He has helped the county
find ways to instill deed
restrictions that will ensure
affordable units being con-
structed now remain afford-
able for up to 99 years. He
helped also draft a law that
requires redevelopment to
include workforce housing in
the plans.

College pushes dual track


It hopes to
expand classes
at high schools
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@kcynoler.comn

Florida Keys Community
College recently honed its
efforts to increase dual enroll-
ment with high school stu-
dents across the Keys, but that
program comes at a cost to
schools' budgets, administra-
tors say.
The college says upper-
level high school classes
called advanced placement
create competition for the dual
enrollment program.
"There are two competing
programs," college provost
Chuck Shaffer said.
"Advanced placement and the


dual enrollment, which is
good."
Shaffer points out that stu-
dents are required to pass
often-challenging AP exams
before they receive college
credit for that course. Dual
enrollment only requires the
student to pass the class.
Monroe County School
District Superintendent Randy
Acevedo said career-focused
classes, or vocational classes
like marine mechanics, do
bring in more money for
schools.
"We receive a greater
weighted funding for those
kinds of classes," Acevedo
said.
Looking past budgetary
issues, dual enrollment is a
positive program for students,
said Mark Hooper, district


coordinator for career educa-
tion.
"It's not conflict," Hooper
said. "It's absolutely some-
thing we encourage. Our job is
to do what's right for the stu-
dents"
According to Hooper, high
schools lose $224.99 in fund-
ing each time a student enrolls
in a college career class rather
than a high school career-ori-
ented class.
He said the state
Department of Education
"realizes that that's a problem.
Hopefully we can make the
funding work."
The college says those
funding matters discourage
dual-enrollment vocational
classes.
The only two dual-enroll-
ment vocational classes
offered are FKCC scuba and
marine propulsion at Key West
High School, college president
Jill Landesberg-Boyle said.
"We've been trying to get
the marine propulsion class at
Marathon High and Coral
Shores," she said. "Those kids
could get dual enrollment
credit."
Other drawbacks besides
financing: Different universi-
ties set varying prerequisites
for incoming students, causing
confusion. And college semes-
ters operate on a schedule that
sometimes conflicts with high
schools' calendars.
But FKCC argues that
Coral Shores doesn't have an
adequate amount of Spanish
and history classes offered.
while Marathon High doesn't
have enough English. humani-
ties, government and psychol-
ogy. Key West, it claims,
offers limited classes in alge-
bra and psychology.
The college also touts that
dual enrollment "eases college
transition for students with
average GPAs and those inter-
ested in technical careers..."
Meanwhile, the college has
reached an increase of more
than 6 percent from last
spring's enrollment, spokes-
woman Lydia Estenoz said.
But if it doesn't increase
more, "we're going to face
some real serious conse-
quences," said Ed Scales,
FKCC board chairman. "Our
total budget is $9 million. It's
impossible to run a college on
that amount of money.

Duval takes a look at itself


Some summit
ideas include
pedestrian mall
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.comn

Hard to imagine that in the
early 19th century, most of it -'as
just a large salt pond.
Now, Duval Strect is Key
West's most important tool for
economic stin"ulus.
Black and white photos of the
bustling ,-rip show congo lines
forming near a Cuban club, the
Monroe Theater buzzing with
ac'vity and a freshly built La
Concha hotel in 1927.
The grainy pictures show a
Kress department store at
Fleming Street where Fast Buck
Freddie's stands now. In the
1940s and '50s, a large, decorat-
ed Christmas tree was placed in
the middle of the street each
December, attracting holiday
tourists, according to historian
Tom Hambright.
Half a century later, the strip is
still evolving. Thursday, about
150 people filed into a confer-
ence room at the new Beachside
Resort on North Roosevelt to
bandy about its future.
Residents and business own-
ers discussed ideas such as clos-
ing off parts of the street and
making it a pedestrian mall,
requiring businesses to recycle,


increasing police pr,-'once and
enforcing Amc,-''ans with
Disabilities Act -ompliance.
But bus;-cssnIna Ed Swift,
who w;1' involved in a large
Duv;,' beautification project in
lor6, warned that ideas for
changing the strip's traffic pattern
have been reviewed and "we've
always come back to what we're
doing now."
T-shirt shop owners, who've
been under scrutiny lately with a
city effort to beautify the street,
say they're being unfairly target-
ed.
"You can't just go out and cru-
cify the shops," said Bonnie
Kiperman, who owns three T-
shirt shops on Duval. "You a can
take those T shirts out of the win-
dows - which I'm sure owners
would - but it's not going to
change anything."
Key West advertises as a place
to lose inhibitions. Kiperman
says, adding that naked tourists
have stumbled into her store dur-
ing Fantasy Fest.
Kiperman has worked with
Mayor Morgan McPherson and
City Commissioner Barry Gibson
by removing "offensive" material
from the window of the store.
Former Mayor Jimmy
Weekley suggested imposing
commercial property taxes on
businesses, an idea that wasn't
well received by the shop owners
present. They say rent on the strip

Pines Colony Property Owners Association on Big Pine Key

dozens of filled trash bags and larger items.


is already exorbitant.
Weekley also urged enforce-
ment of an ordinance that regu-
lates pornography.
City Attorney Shawn Smith,
who was challenged to oversee
that task during the summit, said
it's up to the State Attorney's
Office to deem what is pornogra-
phy and what isn't.
Even though shop owners
understand there is no specific
law outlawing profanity on T-
shirts, they've been cooperating
with Gibson, who's been on the
front line to clean up the image.
Many of the speakers under-
scored their displeasure with poor
aesthetic quality.
"We're starling to smell like
New Orleans," meteorologist
Matt Strahan said.
Audience members proposed
turning the street into a mall for
pedestrians only, and setting up
booths and open-air cafes.
But of course, the summit was
just talk.
"Please," businessman and
environmentalist Chris Belland
told the audience. "Don't leave
here thinking you've done your
civic duty."


"If you have,
or even think
you have, a
Cardiovascular
problem, come
see us."

A regulatory process that
could change the rules for South
Florida fishing will be outlined at
a Monday workshop in Miami.
"This is a good chance for
people to get educated on what
we're going to see happening in
the next couple of years," said
Bruce Irwin, chairman of the
Florida Keys Commercial
Fishermen's Association. "ll
involves some important issues
for the Keys."
The meeting hosted by the
federal South Atlantic Fishiery
Management Council will be
open from 2 to 5 p.m. and 6 to 8
p.m. at the Mutiny Hotel. 2951 S.
Bayshore Drive in Coconut
Grove.
Council technical staff will be
on hand to meet with individuals
or small groups to explain the
rule-making process under revi-
sions to the Magnuson-Stevens
Fishery Conservation Act.
Commercial and recreational
fishermen in the snapper-grouper
fishery and the king mackerel
fishery could be affected.
Monday's session outlines the
process of considering concepts
such as recreational and commer-
cial allocations of a species har-
vest, annual catch limits, and lim-
ited-access plans for commercial
fishers.


E Z Anchor Puller
Idea for older people or myone unable to
stand on the bow and pull the anchor by
hand - touch thie button anuld up comes dithe
uichor. 'uill your anchor at 100' per
minute. You never leave your control seat.
The only sade mul sensible way to putll the
anchor. Pullers for 20' to 60(' boals.
We build four sizes of anchor pullers.


Ahl species considered over-
fished '11t have a recovery pro-
gram iln PKl, by 2010, Irwin
said. All other ' ies must have
a management planrby 2011.
Implementing thbue plans
could lead to creation of'h 4ivid-
ual fishing quotas and other in.-_
agement systems not currently in
use.
"This is the first meeting
where they'll be laying this out,"
Irwin said.
People can make on-the-
record comments on the propos-
als at the Monday workshop. No
decisions will be made at the
Miami session.

On the morning of Nov. 22,
2003. tourist Robert Chiariello
listened to the hum of his rented
moped as hlie wited at a stop sign
in Key West.
With a girlfriend sitting behind
him at Southard and Thomas
streets, the couple couldn't have
anticipated the disaster ahead.
Police Officer Mario Torres
was stopped behind two cars
going west on Southard when he
was dispatched to check out a
domestic dispute at Front Street.
Torres passed the cars in front
of him, turned left into oncoming
traffic on Thomas Street and
accidentally colliding head-on
into Chiariello's yellow moped at
30 mphr The impact knocked him
and his passenger to the ground.
A camera installed on the dash
of Torres' police cruiser captured
the whole incident.
"They just flew off the scoot-
er." witness Jeff Hrizuk said. "It
comes down to simple human
error. Everybody makes mistakes.
[Torres] obviously felt bad."
Chiarello was escorted to
Lower Keys Medical Center and
suffered cuts on his arms and
legs. After he was treated on
Stock Island, the produce sales-
man went home to Fort
Lauderdale. where he continued
seeing podiatrists, chiropractors
and physical therapists.
With all of those visits, plus


"There will be no formal pre-
sentations but ample opportunity
to ask questions, learn more
about upcoming fisheries issues,
discuss concerns and provide
comment," said an agency
spokeswoman.
Earlier this week, the Gulf of
Mexico Fishery Management
Council moved forward with
plans to reduce the gag-grouper
harvest from the gulf by 45 per-
cent.
Pending changes opposed by
recreational anao'ommercial fish-
ermen include a January-to-April
closure on all groper fishing,
and a recreational bw limit of
one gag grouper per day, down
from the current five.


medication, MRI scans and X-
rays. his medical bill grew to
$17,623.29.
According to the police report.
the moped sustained an estimated
$2.000 in damage, while damage
to Torres' car was estimated at
$1.500.
"If the case were tried, plain-
tiff Chiariello would be entitled
to recover his medical expenses,
and if the jury believed that he
had sustained a permanent injury,
would be entitled to recover an
unspecified amount for pain and
suffering." Fort Lauderdale attor-
ney Michael Burke wrote to his
client, the city.
Tuesday, the Key West City
Commission will vote to approve
or deny a $25,000 settlement for
Chiariello, about $7.000 more
than the sum of Chiariello's med-
ical bill. Chiariello filed the law-
suit in August 2005.
Chiariello's attorney. Jose.
Negroni. declined to comment on
the settlement until after Tuesday.
City Attorney Shawn Smith
agrees with Burke that it would
be wise to approve the settlement.
"It's certainly a fair settlement
for something we were responsi-
ble for," Smith said.
Chiariello didn't return a
phone call Friday.
Since the accident, Torres
transferred from the Key West
Police Department to the
Broward Sheriff's Office.

City's

Scales' firm
on Tuesday
agenda
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


A contract to name Gray
Robinson Attorneys at Law as
Key West's lobbying firm for
Florida's legislative and execu-
tive branches will be on the
table Tuesday before the City
Commission.
Gray Robinson attorney Ed
Scales will make a presentation
to the commission Tuesday to
promote the firm, which has an
office on Front Street and nine
other offices covering all areas
of Florida.
The contract would be for a
year, $6,000 a month, begin-
ning this month. The firm can
be fired at anytime with 30
days notice.
"I would be the team
leader," said Scales, a former
city commissioner.
According to Scales, the
firm will have five people work
for Key West, or "guys who do


nothing but lobby." and offers
vast knowledge on housing
issues, as well as wastewater
and stormnwater services.
"Right now, we're in a vul-
nerable state, by way of reduc-
tions .at every level." Mayor
Morgan McPherson said. "With
this particular firm, it's a pack-
age deal with five representa-
tives to cover every area."
But more importantly,
Scales says, the only statewide
firm with an office in Key West
has great connections - what
lobbying is all about.
"Everybody wants a piece of
the pie and the pie is only so
big," he said.
For years, the city has hired
Tallahassee lobbyist Rick
Watson. His contract has
expired, but he still works on a
month-to-month basis. City
Attorney Shawn Smith said.
According to Finance
Director Roger Wittenberg,
Watson makes $3,200 to
$3.900 a month depending on
his expenses.
Smith said a request for pro-
posals for lobbying services


would be sent out soon, but that
McPherson sponsored the reso-
lution up Tuesday because the
next state legislative session is
fast approaching in March.
"I think the city is looking
for a more comprehensive
approach," Scales said.
Also on tap for Tuesday's
meeting, which begins at 6 p.m.
at Old City Hall:
* The commission will
review a resolution to extend a
$2 million sewer improvement
grant from the state
Department of Environmental
Protection.
The money, according to
city documents, was appropri-
ated from the state Legislature
last year, and it requires a $3
million match from the city.
That expense has been
approved in this year's budget.
The commission approved
the terms of the grant at a
November 2.'in meeting. The
city has already received par-
tial funding of $554,293.
* The commission will con-
sider approving expenses for
the pothole-ridden pavement
on oceanside North Roosevelt
Boulevard. A bid from D.N.


Higgins for $234,250 is on the
table.
* Moped Hospital Vice
President Stephen Olsen filed
an administrative appeal of a
Dec. 20 Planning Board deci-
sion that stopped the business
from increasing its bicycles and
electric cars available for rent.
That same night, the board
approved a similar resolution


for another electric-car and
scooter company.
* Once again, commission-
ers will review a contract with
the Monroe Association for
Retarded Citizens that pays the
group for cleaning the Garrison
Bight. Commissioners have
repeatedly delayed voting on
the contract, saying they need
more information.

Gore disciple to speak


By MICHAEL WELBER
Keynoter Contributor


Dan Kipnis has made a living
from the ocean.
A lifelong angler, he has been
a commercial fishernnan and had
fish markets, charter boats and
party fishing boats. He just loves
to fish, traveling all over to do so.
People in the Keys know himn
from the Islamorada Swordfish
Tournament and a talk he gave at
one of the crowd-drawing World
Class Angler seminars in
Marathon.
But now he's worried. He's
seeing change in the oceans that
warn of things to come.
"I noticed that things were
changing in the water because
I'm there every day," he said. "1
am seeing sea level rise. We've
gone up on average 9 inches
since 1935. That's not even a cen-
tury. It's significant because
when you get spring and fall
tides, it is much more than 9 inch-
es. We have water coming out of
storm sewers here in Miami
Beach, and it's saltwater."
So Kipnis decided to get
involved. When former Vice


President Al Gore put out the
word that lie planned to train
1,000 people to spread his imes-
sage about climate change .
Kipnis applied. And he was
among those chosen from the
15.000 who applied.
Now he travels throughout the
southeastern United States
spreading the word about how
climate change is affecting our
waning and rising oceans.
He'll bring that message to
Marathon on Feb. 8 when lihe
speaks to the annual meeting of
Keys environmental group Green
Living & Energy Education
(GLEE). The session will be at
the Marathon Communitv
Theater beginning at 5 p.m. witil
a reception. It's free and open to
the public.
"You have a real issue in tile
Florida Keys." he said. "You have
the potential. 100 years from now,
of not being able to live in most of
the areas you live right now. That's
not a joke. With the ice we're los-
ing in Greenland, the potential for
10 or 12 feet of sea-level rise
exists and with that you'll have


one narrow strip running right
down the center of the KeNs."
One action Kipilis has taken is
to help organize the first carbon-
nieutral fishing contest in Miami.
Twenty-three boats competed in
the event earlier this month. n
According to the Environ-
mental News Service, the tourna-
ment offset 200 tons of carbon
dioxide emissions through
AgCert. which will use the
money for an East Coast methane
capture project, converting it to
electricity.
Kipnis was quoted as saying
that "'sportsmen know climate
change threatens the fish we love
and the habitats thev live in.
Offsetting our emissions is just
one way to show \we're not going
to pass the buck to tile next gen-
eration of anglers."
He'll provide those attending
the talk in Marathon with sugges-
tions for things individual people
can do to reduce their own carbon
emissions. GLEE also offers resi-
dents the chance to get involved
in local environmental efforts.
Those who want to attend can
RSVP to info@keysglee.comn or
call 293-7658 by Monday.

Mortgage lender
probed for loans

Florida's attorney general
is investigating Countrywide
Financial, the nation's largest
mortgage lender, for possible
unfair and deceptive busi-
ness practices related to its

The subpoena, dated Jan.

provide documents and other
information describing pro-
cedures used to determine
whether borrowers qualify
for subprime loans, those for
people with shaky credit.
The state also wants
information on how

AirStar flies
to the mainland
and the Bahamas
Keynoter Staff

AirStar Executive Airways
has launched a new air charter
service at Florida Keys
Marathon Airport.
"We are acutely aware of the
lack of air transportation options
for our citizens and visitors and
feel that we are not only present-


ed with a unique opportunity, but
that we are also able to provide a
much-needed service to thec
area." President .lames Baker
says.
The on-demand service is not
inexpensive. The cheapest flight
is $700 to Marco Island. The
most expensive is $1,900 to get
to Marsh Harbor. Bahamas.
Flights to Fort Lauderdale are
$950. to Miami $800 and to Fort
Myers $900. Other destinations
are Naples. Orlando. Tampa, and


Bimini. Freeport and Nassau in
the Bahamas.
The company says ADF
Charter Corp., doing business as
AirStar, was a Miami-based car-
rier purchased by a local group
in 2007. Officers besides Baker
are Vice President Ron Bailey
and Chief Financial Officer
Peter Rosasco, who also serves
as the city of Marathon's finance
officer.

Your Hallmark moment is here


Contests give
consumers a
chance to design
McClatchy Tribune

In its almost 100 years in busi-
ness, Hallmark Cards Inc. has
received thousands upon thou-
sands of unsolicited illustrations,
photos and poems from greeting-
card designer wannabes.
Until recently, the greeting-
card giant gently turned them


away.
But now, like so many other
businesses that are glomming
onto consumer-generated con-
tent, or CGC, Hallmark is giving
anyone with the desire a chance
to see their designs and senti-
ments sold in thousands of stores
that carry Hallmark greeting
cards.
Hallmark spokeswoman Sarah
Gronberg said the company's
change of heart came after taking
a different approach to gathering


and looking at consumer
research.
"We've been conducting
extensive consumer insights, and
what we've heard a number of
times and in a number of different
venues is that people want to con-
tribute to what is in our Hallmark
cards," Gronberg said. "CGC -
it's so dominant in the market-
place, including Time magazine
last year naming 'You' the person
of the year."
Hallmark started out small and

Artistic Flooring

& Design
Big Pine Key

The owners of Artistic
Flooring & Design in Big
Pine Key have only had their
showroom open three
months, but they bring 20
years of installation experi-
ence to the new venture.
"We really know about the
products that we display and
provide to our customers,"
says owner Val Alberto.
The company's slogan is
"Let us help you turn your
home into a work of art,"
and visitors to the spacious,
well-lit showroom will get
plenty of inspiration. The
walls and display panels on
one side are covered with
dozens of flooring options,
including marble, travertine
and onyx. On the other side
- still a work in progress
- are the company's kitchen
and bath products. In addi-
tion to flooring, the company
sells all-wood cabinets,
countertops and a plethora of
fixtures.
Installation is available,
of course. Alberto says all
installations come with a
two-year warranty on labor,
and he says everything they
order arrives within a week.
"Our showroom is like no
other around. We stay with
the times, giving you high-
end products at an affordable
price."
Artistic Flooring &
Design is at 30945 Avenue
A. It's open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Monday through Friday and
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

Submit your pets


CARDS / From 24

quiet last fall with a contest ask-
ing people to submit greeting
card designs appropriate to
Hallmark's association with
(Product) Red. The initiative -
introduced by Bono, U2's lead
singer, and Bobby Shriver, a
California politician and nephew
of John F. Kennedy - marries
marketing with philanthropy by
getting business to make and sell
Red products and donate a por-
tion of the proceeds toward elim-
inating AIDS in Africa.
Hallmark won't say how
many submissions it received,
only that it had a target in mind
that was significantly exceeded.
After winnowing down the
entries to 10, the cards were put
to an online vote. Two weeks
ago, Hallmark announced that
Erin McGuire, a senior illustra-
tion major at the Ringling
College of Art and Design in
Sarasota, was the grand-prize
winner, receiving more than
25,000 of the 75,000 votes cast
for a winner.
McGuire's design was made
into a Hallmark card and is being
sold online through the end of the
year, with part of its sales benefit-
ing the Global Fund (www.the
globalfund.org) to help elimi-
nate AIDS in Africa. The nine
other finalists' designs are also
available for sale online, but only
until the end of February.
Now, Hallmark has moved
onto its second in a series of CGC
contests, this time asking people
to upload their favorite pet photos
with a birthday sentiment with
broad appeal.
"Pets were chosen because
we've found our consumers are
drawn to great pet photos and that
cards featuring pets have wide
appeal," Gronberg said. "Plus,
pet owners tend to be a passion-
ate and an involved group of peo-
ple."


Diving further into the realm
of back-channel creativity,
Hallmark is using bloggers to
help spread the word about its lat-
est contest.
"A lot of the top blogs have to
do with celebrities, moms and
pets," Gronberg said. "In terms of
getting the word out this time, we
did a little more to spread the
word, including utilizing online
outreach, and the reason was
twofold. It was a way to reach pet
lovers, and bloggers are already
tech-savvy."
One criticism that was posted
on Hallmark's own blog dedicat-
ed to the contest is that the com-
pany retains all rights to all pho-
tos submitted, whether they make
the final cut or not.
"We have a huge internal staff,
and the chance exists that some-
one outside of Hallmark and
someone inside Hallmark would
come up with the same idea."
Gronberg said. "We would never
intentionally take someone's
idea, and we've been very
upfront about the rules and have
tried to make the legal language
consumer-friendly."
Gronberg offered a couple of
tips for those inclined to enter the
contest, which ends at midnight
Feb. 3 and gives the top winner
$1,000, a trip to Hallmark's head-
quarters and a pet photo shoot
with a professional photographer.
Keep in mind that when greet-
ing cards are displayed in stores,
she said, consumers can typically
see only the top section of the
card - therefore, don't bury the
cuteness of the photo at the bot-
tom, where it can't be seen.
"And it needs to have what we
call 'sendability,'" said Gronberg,
something that can be sent to a
number of people for a given
occasion.
"From the feedback we hear, I
think people are really excited to
send us their ideas," Gronberg
said. "It's sort of that sentiment
of, 'finally!'"

Duo chooses Keys
as their training ground


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


It's not quite the same as tak-
ing on a Class 5 rapid, but kayak-
ing the wake of the Marathon
Lady and Starlight party boats off
Key Colony Beach has been a
welcome respite for Olympic
hopefuls Jeff Gette and Martin
Greenberg.
The 18-year-old whitewater
slalom kayakers are here training
for a Feb. 17 Southern Olympic
Team Trial Qualifier event to be
held in San Marcos, Texas.
Training on flat water in the
ocean is a different story com-
pared with northern rivers like
the Youghiogheny, Potomac,
New and Gauley the two are used
to tackling.
"We're used to Class 5s and
20-foot drops. [Here we do]
sprinting to keep up our
endurance and our strength,"
Gette said.


The two train seven days a
week, sometimes twice a day in
kayaks made of carbon and
Kevlar weighing less than 20
pounds. Greenberg said the
boats are designed to give the
paddler total control.
"After you get your boat
you put the seat and foot pegs
in where you want it. Any
lower body movement I can
control and I really have total
control over my boat." he said.
Gette and Greenberg grew
up together in the State
College. Pa.. area and met via
the Mach One Kayak Club
there. They've been training
hard and moving up the ranks
ever since.
Gette, whose mother has a
home in Key Colony, won the
Junior Olympics in 2004 at age
15 and last year qualified for a
spot on the National Junior Team.

marks a year


New exhibit
to open today
at Truman site
The Florida Keys Eco-
Discovery Center celebrates its
first anniversary today with the
opening of Mote Marine
Laboratory's Living Reef
Exhibit inside the center.
The 6,400-square-foot facili-
ty at the Truman waterfront in
Key West is the visitor center for
the Florida Keys National
Marine Sanctuary. It showcases
the region's unique ecosystem,
including the living reef that par-
allels the island chain.
The Living Reef Exhibit is
designed to educate visitors
about preserving and enhancing
the reef environment, as well as
critical reef- research by scien-
tists from the Sarasota-baed
based Mote Marine Laboratory.
which has a research center on
Summerland Key.


The exhibit's focal point is a
2,400-gallon tank featuring fish
and invertebrates indigenous to
the Keys. Visitors also can view
tanks of hard and soft corals,
find out how long-spined sea
urchins can help reef restoration
and learn about Mote's coral
nursery, where more than 22
species of corals are being prop-
agated for replanting on reefs.
A ceremony celebrating the
Living Reef Exhibit is set for
3:30 p.m.
The Florida Keys Eco-
Discovery Center was created in
cooperation with the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration's Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary. the
National Park Service, the U.S.
Fish & Wildlife Service and the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District.
The center is open free to the
public from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Shakespeare comes
to Founders Park

Islamorada Community Enter-
tainment presents its Bard on the
Bay series with the American
Shakespeare Center performing
two ofl Shakespeare's greatest
plays on Feb. 8 ("Henry V") and
Feb. 9 ("Taming of the Shrew")
under the stars at Founders Park.


The American Shakespeare
Center is an energetic troupe of
actors whose members hail from
across the United States and
abroad. Audience preconcep-
tions and "Shakes-fear" dissolve
in fast-paced, intimate perform-
ances where the actors engage
the audience.
"The Taming of the Shrew"
blends romantic comedy and
outlandish farce in a love story
about psychological liberation
and the mysteries of being mar-
ried.
"Henry V" is the story of
England's hero-king and of the
greatest upset in European mili-
tary history. The play suggests
what a nation can achieve when
it is united under a charismatic
leader.
Both plays begin at 8 p.m. at
the TIB Amphitheater in
Founders Park, mile marker 87
bayside. In case of bad weather,
they will be performed at the
Coral Shores High School
Performing Arts Center, mile
marker 89.9. For more informa-
lion, go to www.keysice.com.

Hopefuls choose Keys


KAYAK / From 27

The two compete in the K I cate-
gory, meaning a kayak with a sin-
gle paddler.
It "was a huge goal for me
ever since I started. That's what
everybody aims for," Gette said.
Gette graduated out of Juniors
last year, but Greenberg will be
training extensively in Golden,
Colo., to vie for a spot on this
year's team.
"The courses are normally
200 yards long and include sever-
al features. Whether it be fast
water, eddies, waves, the course
designers look for something
challenging and exciting to do,"
Greenberg said. "They'll really
test your skills to take the water,
read it and react from that."
"It takes about 1:30 to 2:00 for
a normal course, but you're ready
to be done by then. That's a long
two minutes," Gette said.
Gette and Greenberg's kayak-
ing success has enabled them to
travel the globe pursuing their
passion. The two have been more
places at 18 then most of us will
in a lifetime, including: China,
Australia, Europe. Canada and
across the United States.
Gette said the experience has
been amazing, even if he isn't
always fond of the menu in other
countries.
"We were down in Xiasi,
China, eating dog, rice and bok
choy. I gotta tell you, dog's not
bad, but when I found out I was
eating it, wow...didn't know." he
joked.
The two have also made plen-
ty of friends in Europe.
"GalloSports, the company


that makes our boats, is in the
Czech Republic and we'll stay at
their house. They'll give us a
room and cook for us," Gette
said.
Gette and Greenberg are set to
attend Penn State-Mont Alto in
the fall, mainly because its just 20
minutes fro011 a training facility
called the Bethesda Center of
Excellence. They each said the
possibility exists to make this
year's Olympic team, but they)
intend to work hard and hopeful-
ly attain that goal bv 2012 or
2016.
"There's a good chance but
it's competitive. Just to make the
Senior Team I'd be extremely
happy, but the Olympics would
be amazing." Gette said.
In the meantime, the two are
enjoying chasing party boats and
trying not to get taken out by no-
wake buoys.

Sky clears on new Rain Barrel


By CLAUDIA MILLER
L.'Alitludls c 'oit ibuitlo
T he renovations at the Rain
Barrel in Islamorada are
complete, and the new\
space has already hosted several
events including a butterfly
exhibit and a fundraiser.
Now, Stacie Krupa. one of
the resident artists, is spearhead-


ing even greater colinunilv
interaction with monthly events
called Walking in the Rain at the
Rain Barrel, mile marker 86.7.
Founded 30 \years ago by
Carol Cntshall, the Rain lBari-el
is home to 10 resident artists,
and manlly more are represented
throughout the galleries. It was


purchased last year and renovatl-
ed by Jim Mooney, Mike Forster
and Dan and Sande Keil.
"F'veryone seems to love the
whole atmosphere of the Rain
barrel now," Keil said. "1I think
that the improvements make it
easier for people to move
around, especially those who
have a walker or a wheelchair.
With the fresh new artists, now
we have a little bit of the new
and a little bit of old."
The new events, which will
happen the first Thursday of
every month, will not just be
standard gallery walks. Instead,
they will be interactive creative
experiences with many types of
media represented.
"'1 didn't want to have a sim-
ple gallery walk," Krupa said. "I
wanted something that stimulat-
ed people a lot more than just
walking around like you could
on any other day of the week.
This is something special."
There will be an admission
charge to each event, which will
benefit a different charity each
month. Since Krupa is running
for queen of the Black and
White Ball, which benefits the
Florida Keys Children's Shelter,


she wanted this first event to
benefit for the shelter, as well.
The Rain Barrel is forming a
cultural committee, which will
decide each month which future
charities will benefit, as well as
what types of activities will be
offered. Some charities that are
already slated to participate are
Habitat for Humanity, Dolphins
Plus and the Monroe Association
for Retarded Citizens.
"We would like to include non-
profit organizations throughout
the Keys, so that each one has an
equal opportunity to raise money
at the Rain Barrel," Kiel said.
For the inaugural event,
which will be held this Thursday,
Krupa has a wide variety of
activities lined up.
In the garden area, there will
be a showing of the award-win-
ning 1994 independent film "The
Secret of Roan Inish," which was
directed by John Sayles ("Silver
City," "Sunshine State," "Passion
Fish"). Rated PG, this film fol-
lows a 10-year-old girl as she
searches out fltythical beings
called the selkies in a quaint
coastal Irish town.
Several artists will paint new
works during the event, includ-
ing Jacqueline Clark. Cinnamon
Edgar and Carol Ross. Jeweler
Wendy Mahr will create pieces
with fine and precious stones.
Other guest artists will perform
poetry and storytelling.
Painter Pasta Pantenelo will
be even be playing the bongos.
"I told Pasta that I wanted to
see him doing something no one
else is seeing him do." Krupa
said. "When he told me that he
plays the bongos. I was really
excited."
The Red Parrot Cafe will be
open and serving specialty foods
all evening, and popcorn will be
free for children. Visitors can
bring their own bottle of wine:

McKee auction


another big success


Close to $40K
raised to help
island artists
The annual Anne McKee
art auction last Saturday
had pleasant weather for
the first time in a few years.
Ninety-one artists donated work
for New Hampshire auctioneer
Charles Bailey Gates to auc-
tion in his classic rapid-speak
style, spiced with lots of flair
and humor so you have to keep
paying attention so you don't
miss the jokes.
The Small Chef at Large
food and drinks were plentiful
and the crowd was in a jolly
mood at the East Martello in
Key West.
The contributing artists
receive 50 percent of the sale
price of their works amid the rest
goes to the Anne McKee Artists
Fund, so the art community
wins two ways. This year's
event raised nearly $40,000 for
artists in this community.
Founded-by McKee, a Key
West resident since 1971, the
fund has awarded more than
$130,000 since 1994 to local
visual artists, writers and per-
forming artists. Ten to 20 grants
of up to $1,000 apiece are
awarded annually to support
selected applicants' projects.
The work at the exhibit and
auction was about half paint-
ings, along with crafts, sculp-
ture, photographs, digital illus-


Ar H ration and
mixed
, . media.
. The
k ' grant
' applica-
tions will
be avail-
able March
- 4 1 for the
2008
round of
funding.
Judi Bradford "'We
are excited
that we had a successful auction
and we look forward to inspir-
ing many new artistic projects
through our grants this spring."
said Melissa Tausche, president
of the Artists Fund.

Safari
Beezy Bogan and Rita
MacNelly opened a show at the
Custom House Saturday night
of their "trophies" - the prizes
in their search for human sub-
jects for their quirky exaggera-
tive sculpture.
Previous Bogan/MacNelly
shows have featured a transves-
tite rooster, giant shoes, and
frogs.
This year, they have targeted
their own species for satiric
kabobs. The cast of characters
includes a roller-derby skater, a
come-on artist in bathrobe and
figures caught in hilarious
laughter. The two collaborative
artists winter here from
Richmond, Va. their work is a
relief from reality.


"'Our goal is not to strictly
record but to give the viewer an
overall sensory experience."
they say.
The show continues through
March 30.

The gift shop
I wandered into the gift shop
at the Custom House on Front
Street, always one of mv
favorite shopping secrets.
Museum Stores Manager 'Ton
(Greenwood has expanded the-
tiny shop and added ilenms relat-
ed to the Seward .lohnson
exhibit, books, novelties and
art-styled merchandise.
I picked up a couple of
Valentine gifts - a Gustav
Klimt "The Kiss" pillowcase
(with a surprise on the back)
and some other pieces. They
also have pearl earrings like
Vermeer's "Girl with A Pearl
Earring" and a ribbon choker
inspired by Manet's "Olympia."
A collection of works featur-
ing Marilyn Monroe is also
available, including Bert
Stern's photograph of her "'Last
Sitting." Proceeds from this
group benefit the Tropic
Cinema in Key West and the
educational programs for the
Key West Art & Historical
Society.

OH - SHE
DIDN'T LIKE
TATTOOS ?


'Shel Shocked'


electrifies


Shel Shocked." a new collec-
tion of short plays by Shel
Silverstein directed by Gary
McDonald. opens Tuesday at the
Red Barn Theatre of Key West.
One of Key West's own
favorite authors. Silverstein had
a unique view of modern life
combined with an uncompromis-
ing artist's skill. They make for
an evening of hilariously warped
and unpredictable vignettes.
Silverstein was best known
for the quirky children's books
he wrote and illustrated, such as
"The Giving Tree" and "A Light






SPORT SHIRTS
for your fisherman...

PUBL1X PLAZA .
MARATHON


in the Attic," and just slightly
less known for the oddball songs
he wrote, most famously "A Boy
Named Sue" and "The Cover of
the Rolling Stone."
The same offbeat, sly and
slightly macabre twist in outlook
that runs through his other work
is found in abundance in the 11
short plays that comprise the
new offering at the Red Barn.
Long an island resident
before his death. Silverstein pos-
sessed a keen and wicked sense
of humor. Since he was first and
foremost a cartoonist, perhaps
the best way to categorize this is
as a medley of dramatized car-
toons.
Culled from his collection of
more than 100 one-acts, the
sketches, for adults only. are a
raunchy delight that take you
into the heart of his comic world.
where nothing is at it seems.
McDonald was a friend and
collaborator with the legendary
writer, having worked with him
on past Barn productions of both
"Bed Plays" and "The Bathroom
Plays" and, since his death, stag-
ing a tribute evening called
"Shel's Shorts."
Actors Robin Deck, George
Murphy. Dale Kittle. Elena
Devers. Shane-Timlin. Cricket
Desmarais, Sarah Goodwin and
Mook J comprise the ensemble
cast.
Tickets for Tuesday's 8 p.m.
opening are $35. The show runs
Tuesday through Saturdays
through March 8. with tickets
$30 except for Thursday nights,
when they're $25.

Flamenco arrives
at TIB Amphitheatre

Considered by many to be the
best flamenco guitarist in the
world. Paco Pena brines his
musical talent, and an equally
impressive dance company, to
the TIB Amphitheater at
Founders Park in Islamorada this
Tuesday.
Presented by the nonprofit
Islamorada Community
Entertainment, the program is
called "A Compas!," or "Primal
Pulse!" It's Pena's rendition of
what flamenco represents - a
spontaneous collaboration


between musicians, dancers and
singers who create a unique and

These are hardly

trophy wives


Duo captures
our humanity
with a twist
woman walks down a
Key West street while,
unbeknownst to her, two
artists on bikes circle, closing in
on their prey. They come at her
from two directions, begin
secretly firing at her from their
cameras until she trips and falls.
That predatory pair, Rita
MacNelly and Beezy Bogan,
later felt pretty bad about her
spill - but that's the nature of
their hunt.
"The quick ones get away,
but the slower ones are the ones
we're after," Bogan says.
And so you have the absurd
safari of "American Trophies," a
collection of human specimens,
sort of, on display at the Custom
House Museum, 281 Front St.,
Key West.
Previous Bogan/MacNelly
shows have featured a transves-
tite rooster, giant shoes and
frogs. Now they've dedicated
themselves to human prey, like
young Barry and his pet identi-
cal twin hamster; Polly, original
roller derby-girl revisiting her
skates and short shorts; and
Eugene, who perpetually
lounges in a bathrobe, perpetual-
ly invites you into his hot tub.
The sculptures may end up
looking very little like the origi-
nal prey, but MacNelly and
Bogan let the sculpture dictate
- the face may retain its strange
humanity, but the creative taxi-
dermy that occurs from wire
frame to plaster to skin, hair and
clothing occurs when the sculp-
ture becomes what it wants to be.
"If you don't have the look,


This is Herbie, who shows off
the kind of style - whatever
that style is - caught in the
artists' safaris.
then you've got a boring, flat
portrait." Bogan says. "It can no
longer be about the photograph:
it has to be about the sculpture."
MacNelly and Bogan single
out the slowest members of the
unsuspecting human herd in
places like Key West, New
Orleans and New York City,
snap pictures and return to their
studio in Richmond, Va., to cre-
ate their trophies.
A particularly fine hunting
stand is right at the bar at Billy's
there in Key West, where the
duo sips tequila sunrises and
watches the tourists come off the
mountain-sized cruise liners. It
gives the pair a chance to catch
some exotics in their sights.
Is their hunting party an elab-
orate excuse for voyeurism?
Probably. But anyone who goes
on their safari is also guilty of
poaching something very strange
from American culture.

Soccer Canes fall
in the regional

Coral Shores' boys soc-
cer team closed its season
Thursday in the first round
of the Region 4-3A

as district runners-up, and
scored a regular-season win
over Gulliver Prep for the
first time in recent history.

Forfeit lets
Conchs advance

The Key West High
School girls basketball team
won its first-round District
16-4A game Wednesday -
by forfeit when Edison decid-
ed it didn't want to play.
Conch coach Glenn
Hayes said that shortly after
Key West arrived at the St.
Brendan gym in Mianmi, he
was told Edison's bus had
broken. Edison declined an
offer to be picked up by
another bus.
The Conchs (13-7)
advanced to a semifinal game
-against St. Brendan that was
played late Friday, too late to
be included in today's paper.
The winner was to play for

Keys wrestlers advance


Major, Aydt

at tournament
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


Eight Key West High School
wrestlers advanced to the
regionals, but the Conchs' third-
place finish at the District 16-
1A tournament at Florida
Christian in Miami on Thursday
was "very disappointing,"
coach John Moeller said.
The Conchs had 128.5
points, 6.5 behind second-place
Belen Jesuit and well behind


Doral Academy, which won
with 191 points.
"'Doral loaded up," Moeller
said. "They weren't the team we
defeated earlier in the season.
The\ had some very good
wrestlers."
Only two Conchs finished in
first place - 189-pound Ralph
Major, whose two pins extended
his unbeaten record to 27-0, and
160-pound Cody Aydt.
Finishing second were 135-
pound Ben Covan, 130-pound
Dylan Barber and 119-pound
Oscar Fernandez.

Conchs get past Canes


Win follows
earlier victory
over Marathon
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Less than a week after
avenging an early-season loss
to Marathon, the Key West
High School boys basketball
team did the same thing
Wednesday against Coral
Shores, defeating the
Hurricanes, 75-66, at the
Bobby Menendez Gym.
"We controlled the tempo,"
said Key West coach Paul
Davis, whose team lost to the
Hurricanes, 69-59, in
December. "From the second
quarter on, we were patient on
offense, taking our time to find
the seams in the defense."
No one found the seams bet-
ter then the Conchs' quick, pen-
etrating freshman point guard
Keith Valdez, who created suc-
cessful scoring opportunities
for his teammates - and
scored a game-high 21 points
himself.
Michael Gallagher had 16
points, Vladimyr Sibera had 12

Cormack, who gave the Conchs

The three second-place fin-

meet.
Team leader Jason Soares
reached the . 140-pound title
match, but lost a tough 12-7
points decision to Gabriel
Madral, from district champion
Doral Academy.

Playoff game

They finished the regular
season 9-14, but Marathon
High School boys basketball
coach Kevin Freeman said he
stressed to his team their record
now is 0-0.
"Everybody is in the same
boat and districts are not an
impossibility. We play Palmer
and if we beat them, we play
Westwood." Freeman said.
"Westwood beat us twice but
we think we can play with
them. It's a brand new season
right now."
The Dolphins closed out
their schedule with losses to a
strong Ransom Everglades
team Tuesday, 60-41, and
Miami Country Day Thursday.
63-48.
The Dolphins fell victim on
Tuesday to red-hot early shoot-

to building a 24-6 first-quarter
lead.
"They were just lights out,
killing our zone," Freeman said.
"They found every open spot."
Freeman said the team
changed defenses after the first
quarter and the players respond-
ed well.
"We abandoned the zone and
went man-to-man and we were
impressed with the way we
played. Over the last three quar-
ters we were only outscored by
one point," he said.
In the third quarter, Freeman
said, senior guard Blake
Friedman started to get hot.
Friedman scored 21 of his 24
points in the second half.
Marathon trailed 34-12 at the
half, but closed the gap to 42-29
after three quarters.


But Freeman said the
Raiders outscored the Dolphins
down the stretch, mainly due to
free throws as Marathon fouled
to preserve the clock. He said
he was proud the team contin-
ued to compete throughout.
"After getting down it would
have been easy to pack it in, but
we stepped it up and they got a
little scared for a minute. We
had them a little worried but
that big lead killed us,"
Freeman said.
Sophomore Travis
Leachman had nine points and
seven rebounds in the game.
Thursday, the final home
game for Dolphin seniors,
Marathon started strong before
defensive lapses allowed the
Spartans to pull away.
"We started getting lazy on
defense and they killed us on
the fast break. This is the hard-
est working team I've ever had

and they want to be better, but
there's a difference between
working hard and going out on
the court and hustling,"
Freeman said. "These teams
from Miami are quick and phys-
ical and you have to match that
intensity."
The Dolphins trailed by just
two after one quarter, 16-14,
and at one point held a 19-18
lead. But the Spartans ended the
first half with a 12-2 run and led


30-21 at halftime.
The Spartans continued to
build their lead in the third
quarter as the Dolphins strug-
gled at both ends of the floor.
Friedman scored 17 points in
the game, but was just 7 for 21
from the floor. The Dolphins
trailed 50-30 after three quar-
ters.
"Blake wasn't on last night.
He tries to put the team on his
back and sometimes tries too


hard," Freeman said. "That's
not a bad thing, but he has to be
smarter with his shot selection."
Junior Alberic Forest had a
strong game, scoring 13 points
with seven rebounds, two steals
and two assists.
Marathon is slated to take on
Palmer Trinity School in the
opening round of district tour-
nament play. The game is
scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday at Palmer.

"We went out at the halt', 2-0,

Gulliver scored in the 15th

Seniors lead Canes


Coral Shores
heads to Ransom
on Wednesday
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow(,@kcynotei.comn

Coral Shores doesn't lack
experience as it heads into the
boys District 16-3A basketball
tournament this week.
"We've got eight seniors on
the team," Hurricane coach
Andy Thiery said. "Now's the
time to stand up and play
tough out there."
The Canes went 4-4 against
district teams this regular sea-
son, finishing third among the
five teams. That earned them a
spot in the tournament semifi-
nal against No. 2 seed Ransom
Everglades, the tourney host.
Game time is 7:30 p.m.
Wednesday at Ransom (6-2 in
district).
"It will be a fight," Thiery
said. "We've got to learn from
the past and continue to play
together like we have most of
the year."


Defense and limiting
turnovers will be a key to suc-
cess, he said.
Coral Shores (5-10 overall)
dropped its last two regular-
season games, against
Archbishop Curley and Key
West High School.
"We lost by 19 points to
Curley and that felt better than
the nine-point loss to Key
West," Thiery said. "We did
too much standing around on
defense against Key West. If
we do that against Ransom,
we're in trouble."
The Hurricanes "played a
great game against a good
Curley team" but fell, 70-51.
Thiery said.
"We were up 41-39 at the
end of the third," Thiery said,
"but then we got tired and they
caught up. We had guys in foul
trouble and guys who didn't
make the trip."
Guard Ray Ferro led the
team with 12 points as season
scoring leader Chris Noble
moved down low after center
Stephen Fowler got in early
foul trouble.


Noble closed with 10 points
"and had another all-around
great game with rebounds and
passes," Thiery said.
Randell Jackman scored
nine points, followed by
Fowler with eight and
Anthony Whitehead with
seven. Sammy Leon had three
and Max Jones scored two.
"We played well as a team
and had a nice balanced scor-
ing attack, said the coach.
The JV Hurricanes beat the
Curley JV, 56-42, behind 19
points from Kyle Sikora. Zach
Stroup and Darius Kittle each
had 14 points.

Girls close
Coral Shores' girls basket-
ball team closed out its season
with a 31-29 loss to Carrollton
in the opening round of the
District 16-3A Tournament
Wednesday.
The Lady Canes held
Carrollton to just eight first-
half points but only scored 10
themselves.
Scoring information for
Coral Shores was not avail-
able at press time.

By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer

The boys lacrosse season
that opens Tuesday "should be
the start of something good."
Coral Shores head coach Erik
Bryan says.
A bulging roster of 41 play-
ers is expected to board the
bus to Pines Charter School in
Broward County.
The Hurricanes host their
first home game at 7 p.m.
Friday against Palmer Trinity.
"We've got numbers but not
a lot of experience at the varsi-
ty level," Bryan said. "We're
young and will only get better
as the season goes on."
Coral Shores has 23 fresh-
men on the preseason roster,
most coming out of the mid-
dle-school lacrosse programs
at Plantation Key and Key
Largo.
"Now we're getting players
with experience who know the
game," Bryan said. "It takes
about a year to learn the stick
skills of passing and catching,
and four years to get really
good at it."
The Hurricanes return five
veteran seniors from last
year's squad that endured a

"The state association

"I've got at least five exper

The big crew of freshmen

"We get a lot of skateboar

lacrosse because it's diffe

game but more free-flowir
than football. It allows for cr
