Outrage has been the general
mood among many since
Monday, when the County


Commission voted to adopt sev-
eral revisions to a proposed ordi-

working waterfront.
The revisions were drafted by
two local attorneys who work for
New Stock Island Properties,


which owns waterfront land on
Stock Island. New Stock Island
has talked of a development to
include a hotel, housing, retail
shops, restaurants, a boat yard
and commercial fishing.

'Lady' lucky no more


.Gambling vessel
grounded during
Wilma now history
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The Lady Luck has joined the
Keys fleet of ghost ships.
The 80-foot casino boat,
stranded on a flat at mile mark-
er 13 for more than two years,


exists no more.
"It's completely gone," said
John Coffin, owner of Coffin
Marine of Big Pine Key. "If you
went out to the site, you'd be
hard pressed to say: This is
where the boat was."
A 25-day project funded by
the Florida Keys National
Marine Sanctuary saw the aban-
doned vessel cut into pieces,
which were then barged off the
flat near mile marker 13.


A federal legal case is
expected to be lodged against
the ship's former owners in an
attempt to recoup costs of the
removal and environmental
restoration.
"The vessel needed to be
removed so it would not do
additional damage to the
resources of the national marine
sanctuary," said Steve Wemdli,
a case coordinator for the sanc-
'tuary.

changes, allowing them to
replace working walctrfront with
high-end development which will
exceed the Keys' cherished
height restriction while removing
the only language powerful
enough to insure the retention ...
of what little recreational and
commercial access still remains
in the Keys."
Without reading the proposed
additions, Mayor Sonny McCoy
and commissioners Dixie Spehar
and Mario Di Gennaro voted to
add language to a newly revised
waterfront ordinance - despite
warnings from Popham and
county staff not to.
"The apparent lack of trans-
parency and due process has
more than once characterized the
decision making of our county's
highest level of elected officials,"
Popham said, adding that the
County Commission has "mar-
ginalized" the public with back-
room decisions.
"Huge changes were made
and none of the county commis-
sioners even know what they
were voting on," Commissioner
George Neugent said. "Even our
Growth Management director
was against the amendments."
Neugent and Commissioner
Sylvia Murphy voted against the
broad-stroke adoption suggested
by Di Gennaro when he
motioned to include all of the
attorneys' changes in the ordi-
nan1ce.
Di Gennaro told the Keynoter
after the meeting that he had not,
in fact, read the new provisions.
But, he said, he feels landowners
should be free to do whatever
they want with their property.
The waterfront ordinance,
aimed at conserving commercial
fishing and public access to the
water, has been nearly two years
in the making. It was approved
by the commission in September
with some added last-minute lan-
guage that would allow hotels
and market-rate homes on the
working waterfront.
It was sent to Tallahassee for
scrutiny by the Department of
Community Affairs, the state
agency lagged with overseeing
land-development regulations in
the county. That agency objected
to its vague language and sent it
back for county revision in
December.
County staffers addressed all
of the state's objections. crafting

Lobster boats prove this week that Stock Island is indeed a

'No net loss' is lost


The Monroe County
Commission on Monday voted
to include some changes to the
working-waterfront preserva-
tion ordinance, changes drafted
by two attorneys representing
Stock Island waterfront
landowners. The following
items will be added to the ordi-
nance when it is once again
sent to Tallahassee for scrutiny
by the Florida Department of
Community Affairs.
+ Complete removal of lan-
guage referring to "no net loss"
of traditional waterfront uses.
* Increased density on
waterfront parcels, using sub-
merged lands to calculate the
higher densities.
* The addition of language
changing the goal of the ordi-
nance from just preserving the
working waterfront to preserv-
ing and "enhancing" the work-
ing waterfront.
* The ability to gamer vari-
ances for waterfront setback.

the proposal that was put before
the commission at Monday's spe-
cial meeting in Key West.
But Neugent says the ordi-
nance could allow a loophole for
developers to exceed the county's
strict 35-foot height limit for
buildings.
"What happened at
[Monday'sl meeting was a trav-
esty of justice and uncon-
scionable." Popham said.
Growth Management Director


"The [marine industrial] dis-
trict, including within it the
Safe Harbor area, should be
able to have activities, uses and
structures allowances ... to
properly function. Strict adher-
ence to shoreline setback
requirements that may be good
ideas in other land use cate-
gories/districts do not make
sense for the marine industrial
land use category."
In addition, the commission
approved language that was
already included in the ordi-
nance that would allow build-
ing height on waterfront
parcels to be measured 35 feet
above the base flood elevation.
Under existing rules, the 35-
foot height limit is measured
from ground level. The new
means of measurement, some
worry, could add anywhere
from 8 to 12 feet in height to
new structures along the water-
front.


Andrew Trivette noted that some
language presented by Jerry
Coleman, one of the attorneys for
developer New Stock Island
Properties, was a problem. "'That
was just one example of the kind
of authority the County
Commission was giving away."
he said Tuesday.
1-le noted, too, that a proposed
hotel could be a problem.
"It conflicts with several cur-
rent state policies," he said.

'Lady Luck' now in pieces at Miami scrap yard


'LADY LUCK' / From I

Money for the $500,000 effort
came from a sanctuary account
funded by fines levied against the
owners of other grounded ships.
"It was a very successful
mobilization." Coffin said. "We
were in and out within 25 days,
removing 315,000 pounds of
debris, mostly steel."
The Lady Luck had a 28-foot
beam, and was 20 feet in height.
Hurricane Wilma in October
2005 shoved the casino boat high
onto a shallow flat where depths
in normal conditions would never
allow it to be refloated.
Any attempt to free the vessel
would have meant digging a
trench through a protected man-
grove environment. Eventually
the decision was made to disas-
semble the boat.
"My guys worked nonstop in
all weather, through cold and


rain," Coffin said. "We never
worked less than a 12-hour day,
and there were more than a few
16-hour days."
Crewmen used "extremely
technical" cutting techniques,
such as high-pressure welding
torches, to cut through the thick
metal. Coffin said.
"It was a good plan and a good
crew," he said. "The thing I love
best about it is that we were able
to do it all with local resources.
using all Keys people. [The gov-
ernment] got a bargain and got it
done quickly."
He said, "The track through
the mangroves where the keel
dug through on its way in is still
disturbed, of course. You can see
the dead mangroves and mud
where it was lying but overall, it
looks surprisingly normal."
All-terrain vehicles and shal-
low-draft barges were used to
remove large parts like the
engines and smaller pieces.


" "vnz m ' . ff ' '7sorw' mI
RESTORATION: The William Curry plot at the Key West
Cemetery is restored as part of work conducted throughout
the cemetery. The decorative urn that once graced the top
of the plot had years ago been knocked off and rested on
the ground near the monument. Last Wednesday, that urn
was lifted 15 feet in the air and put back on top. Curry came
to Key West from Green Turtle Cay in the Bahamas in 1847
and made his fortune through mercantile .activities; he
became Florida's first millionaire. He died in 1896.


"All that went to a Miami
scrap yard," Coffin said. "The
other debris went to the Monroe
County landfill. We were able to
collect and recycle about 400 gal-
lons of fuel from the boat."
Earlier in 2005, Hurricane


Katrina left the Lady Luck strand-
ed on a Florida Bay flat. It was
freed and returned to its Key
West port. When Hurricane
Wilma hit, the boat torn free from
its anchorings.
"Now we'll go back to build-


ing docks and installing pilings,
which is our main business,"
Coffin said. "Actually, I thinly my
main business is fixing our own
broken equipment after a job like
this."

Molester gets 30 years


Marathon man
convicted in
teen's attack
A Marathon man will spend
the next 30 years in jail for his
lewd and lascivious molestation
of a 13-year-old girl in January
2006 - double the statutory
maximum sentence for the
crime.
Acting Monroe County
Circuit Court Judge Ruth
Becker sentenced Eniel Planas


to the long
prison term
Thursday. A
M a r a t h o n
jury took less
than two
hours to con-
vict Planas,
40, at his
PLANAS October trial.
PLAN.AS P r o s -
ecutors say that on Jan. 29,
2006, Planas was spending his
first night with a new girlfriend,
his victim's mother, when in the
early morning hours he snuck
from the mother's bedroom into
her sleeping daughter's bed-
room and attacked her.
According to Sheriff's
Office reports, he told the vic-
tim, "It's OK, go back to sleep"
as he fondled her. "She pushed
him away and began to scream
for her mother," reports say.
State Attorney's Office
spokesman Matthew Helmerich
said that when the girl's mother
ran into the hall to see what was


wrong, she saw Planas coming
out of the girl's bedroom and
run into the bathroom.
A neighbor heard the girl's
screams and called police.
Planas fled but was found six
months later when U. S. mar-
shals apprehended him in
Miami.
Planas has a long and violent
criminal history with convic-
tions for aggravated assault,
aggravated battery and armed
burglary, Helmerich said.
A second-degree felony like
lewd and lascivious molestation
normally carries a maximum
sentence of 15 years. Because
of Planas' history as well as the
fact that he had been out of
prison fewer than five years
since his last release. Assistant
State Attorney Patrick
McCullah asked Becker to cate-
gorize Planas a habitual violent
felony offender, which would
allow her to increase his punish-
ment.
She doubled his sentence
from 15 years to 30.

Rat didn't 'amble'


RATS / From 1

"It looks like it was what
we thought it was; we thought
it got transported there [and] it
did not get there on its own.
[USDA workers] spent a good
amount of time on that
because we had a dead body
there," Hardin said of the
Islamorada rat. "We're going
to consider it an isolated inci-
dent."
The rat was found 22 miles
up the highway and would
have had to navigate several
bridges to end up where it was
found, Hardin said.
"There's just no way it
ambled that far. They haven't
even migrated anywhere near
that far going toward
Marathon, where they don't
have those obstacles in front of
them," he said.
Meanwhile, slowly but
surely the effort to eradicate
the Grassy Key population
continues, Hardin said.
"It's been spot duty more
than anything else. The good
news is any animal reported to
us, we have been able to trap,"
Hardin said. "We're in that
painstaking last phase of try-


-ing to encounter animals as
we hear about them."
Hardin said it has been five
months since the last round of
bait trapping was done on
Grassy Key and that roughly
10 of the Gambian rats have
been captured since then.
"All of them have been
found in the core area toward
the northern end of Grassy
Key, back in the neighbor-
hoods and not too close to U.S.
1. We're analyzing if some of
these rats are coming from
areas ... where some of the
homeowners chose not to let
us put [traps] out," he said.
Hardin said he is hesitant to
estimate the number of
remaining Gambian rats on the
island, but said what he
believed was a population in
the hundreds has dwindled to a
couple dozen at most.
"This is pretty typical to
have to hunt harder for the last
few individuals," he said.
Any homeowner who
encounters a Gambian rat on
Grass Key is encouraged to
dial (866) 484-7586 to report
the sighting. A report can also
be made online at www
.myfwc.comlnonnatives.

Keys bartender heads Alleged shoplifter
to international contest busted for battery


A Key West bartender is head-
ing to the Arctic Circle to see if
he's crowned by Finlandia Vodka
the world's top server.
John Edellstein, a bartender at
the Conch Republic Seafood Co..
is among 27 servers from the U.S.
and Canada competing in Kittila,
Finland, in the 10th annual Inter-
national Finlandia Vodka Cup.
The seven U.S. competitors
depart for Finland this weekend
and compete in a U.S. "shake-
off' just prior to the finals Feb.
12. The winner of the shake-off
will move on to represent the
U.S. in the finals.
Competitors are critiqued by a
panel of judges on their art, style
and craft while making three cock-
tails: an aperitif, a long drink and a
"quick mix." Every drink must be
a new creation based on Finlandia
Vodka or one of its products.


A Tavernier man arrested for
shoplifting Monday also faces
charges of burglary and battery in
a separate incident, Sheriff's
Office reports said.
Deputy Becky Herrin said 33-
year-old Alfred Yero was arrested
after the manager of the
Tavernier Winn-Dixie detained
him for shoplifting and called
police.
The manager reportedly saw
Yero walk out of the store with a
six-pack of beer and a package of
ribs and a package of skirt steak
down the front of his pants
She said Yero was already
wanted for a Dec. 21 incident in
which he forced open the front
door of a home at mile marker
92.5, woke the man inside and
argued with him. When the man
told Ycro to leave, Herrin said.
Yero attacked him.

Incumbent Clyde Burnett
heads a list of five qualified can-
didates for two open seats on the
Key Colony Beach City
Commission.
Commissioner Arline Carbin
has chosen not to seek reelection
March 11.
Burnett was originally
appointed by the commission to
an open seat and has won reelec-
tion to two-year terms three
times. As mayor, he also serves as
city administrator, though he
acknowledged the city's growth
might mean eventually outsourc-
ing that position.
"I think it's getting to the point
where there's so much business
and things going on that we'll
have to at least get a part-time
manager," Burnett said.
Bumett said he feels the city
has made significant headway in


his six-plus years, including this
year being ranked 381 of 412
cities in Florida for lowest mill-
age rate.
"Keeping millage at rollback
and keeping services up and
meeting the need for the citizens
is what I've tried to do," Burnett
said. "We're about 60 percent
complete with our stormwater
master plan and it's all been done
without taxpayer money. I've
tried to bring in other funds
through grants to enhance our
city."
Tucker DeGraw served two
terms on the commission before
losing last year. DeGraw has been
active in the community since
moving to Key Colony 18 years
ago.
"In this economy I want to see
us be fiscally responsible, the
way we've been under Mayor
Bumett. I think we've exercised


fiscal responsibility down the
line, in every facet of the city, and
I want to see that continue,"
DeGraw said.
Newcomers April Tracy,
Geraldine Zahn and Steven Flood
all said they feel a fresh perspec-
tive would be helpful.
Tracy has been a Key Colony
resident for 11 years and her fam-
ily for 28. She said her time here
as a business owner makes her
"familiar with the issues and
challenges of the city."
"There are some things in the
city 1 would like to see addressed.
The sewer system in Key Colony
needs to be updated and there's
ways to do that to make it advan-
tageous to the Iresidents]," Tracy
said.
Tracy also said it was impor-
tant to have citizens more
involved in their community,
which she will strive toward.
Zahn has been a full-time Key
Colony resident for four years


after 45 years running a commer-
cial vending company with her
husband in New Jersey. She is
chairwoman of the city
Recreation Committee and said
her business experience would be
helpful to the commission.
"I just thought a new face and
voice in Key Colony Beach would
be good," Zahn said. "My main
idea is a better level of communi-
cation between the government
and citizens, so they can hear
about issues well ahead of time
[and] make informed decisions."
Flood has been a full-time res-
ident of Key Colony for three
years and is admittedly new to
politics.
"I just wanted to get more
involved with what's going on in
the city. The last couple of years I
haven't been satisfied with deci-
sions coming out of city hall and
hopefully I can work toward
changing things," Flood said.
Flood also said he hopes to


"continue to keep taxes low and
work toward the good of the city."
Key Colony Beach does not
offer early voting.

Nelson files in Marathon
Joan "Bicycle Joanie" Nelson
has filed papers to run for the
Marathon City Council Nov. 4.
Nelson has run several times
for council, as well as schools
superintendent and for both the
Monroe County and Florida Keys
Mosquito Control District com-
missions.
Mayor Pete Worthington, Vice
Mayor Chris Bull and
Councilwoman Marilyn Tempest
are up for reelection. Early voting
in Marathon runs from Oct. 20
through Nov. 1, from 8:30 a.m. to
4:30 p.m. at the Supervisor of
Elections office at 490 63rd St.
Photo identification is required.
Marathon, as of Dec. 31, had
5,914 registered voters. Key
Colony has 813.


WASTEWATER PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT


The economy of the Keys is directly linked to a healthy ecosystem and clean waters. In the Keys, the groundwater and near-shore waters are closely connected.
Inadequately treated wastewater from septic systems and cesspits seeps into the surrounding porous limestone rock and pollutes the groundwater. The polluted
groundwater seeps into near-shore marine waters where it introduces excessive nutrients and even harmful bacteria. Inadequately treated sewage discharges
can pose a health risk for humans and, at times, have resulted in beach closures.

In 1999, the Florida Legislature established new treatment and disposal standards for all wastewater systems in the Keys in order to address this problem.
Pursuant to Chapter 99-395 of the Laws of Florida, all wastewater disposal facilities in Monroe County must achieve the new standards by July 1, 2010.
This requirement applies to all wastewater treatment plants regulated by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and on-site wastewater
treatment and disposal systems (OSTDS) regulated by the Florida Department of Health.

Under this legislation, the individual owners of wastewater systems, including homeowners, businesses and government facilities, are responsible for meeting
these requirements by upgrading their wastewater systems in compliance with the Law. However, the owners of existing wastewater treatment and disposal
systems may achieve compliance by connecting to municipal or privately owned central utilities that meet the new standards by the required deadline. Failure
to comply with the requirements of this law by July 1, 2010, may result in enforcement action including the imposition of civil penalties.

The preservation of our unique aquatic ecosystem will require the combined effort of the entire community of the Florida Keys, with help from local, state
and federal government agencies. As residents or tourists, we are all responsible for this environmental treasure. You can help by supporting wastewater
improvement projects implemented by your local government or wastewater utility in your area. For more information on the requirements of the 2010
legislation, you may contact the FDEP Marathon Office at (305) 289-2310.

Voters created cities,

should still have say

By the time most readers get to this editorial, there will be
news coverage galore on the outcome of the so-called Super
Tuesday primaries or caucuses in 24 states.
Whether voters push John McCain to the GOP lead or narrow
the gap between Democrats Hillary Clinton and Barack
Obama, the important thing is that voters were heard.
That's a lesson that could be learned close to home, as groups
pushing for a recall of incorporation in Marathon and in
Islamorada face the challenge of getting this issue to the ballot.
As we reported in Saturday's Keynoter, state Rep. Ron
Saunders has announced he will not file a local bill this session
in Tallahassee seeking authorization for a vote to dissolve the
two Keys municipalities.
His reasons were mostly tied to hard economic times and
placing another potential financial burden on Monroe County,
which would have to pick up the debt obligations along with
the tax revenue from both incorporated areas.
But there is another reason. It has to do with letting voters
have a say.
A decade ago, chaffing under what was perceived as county
inattention to concerns, groups in Marathon and Islunorada
organized a series of public forums and meetings and
researched what it takes to incorporate a new city.
The process from start to getting it on the ballot stretched
well over two years in both communities, longer if you trace
back the earliest incorporation movement in Marathon (which
dated back to 1952).
Sally Buehler, who once ran unsuccessfully for Marathon
City Council, is leading the effort to dissolve the city. She took
issue with the way her petitions were dismissed and says she's
ready with a "Plan B."
There's no mystery here.
If Buehler wants to put the issue on the ballot, she can follow
the procedures outlined in the city charter. And Robert Page,
her counterpart organizing petitions in Islamnorada, has the
same option.
Ironically, last month Marathon resident Fred Endeuman
suggested the City Council schedule the dissolution question
for a fall election, saying that until a referendum is held, "accu-
sations and rumors will continue to lurk in the background, poi-
soning the atmosphere...."
His advice was ignored last month.
Perhaps watching voters make their voices heard at the polls
all across the country will convince people on both sides of the
unincorporation issue that the very best way to settle this is at
the ballot box.

Vote to dissolve cities sends wrong message at wrong time


EDITOR:
As I announced at my public meeting in
Marathon, 1 will not be filing legislation to
require a referendum vote to dissolve the city of
Marathon and village of Islamorada. While the
easy political route would have been for me to
just file the legislation and see what happened, I
felt that I had an obligation to my constituents to
first determine the potential impacts of unincor-
poration before placing the issue on the ballot.
State law would require Monroe County to
assume all financial obligations already incurred
by any municipality that might be dissolved,
including all bonds, staff salaries and pension ben-
efits. Having attended the last budget meeting of
the Monroe County Commission, I know that the
county is experiencing severe budget problems.
Another concern was the potential negative
impact that the filing of unincorporation legisla-
tion might have on myn efforts to obtain state and
federal funding to assist in the completion ofI the
wastewater system for the Keys.
It would send a very confusing message to
legislators in Tallahassee and Washington. D. C.,
to ask for funding at the same time I had filed


legislation that could lead to the dissolution of
two of the members of the team, Marathon and
Islamorada. It is my opinion that the citizens of
Marathon and Islamorada would prefer the
opportunity to have lower sewer bills rather than
the opportunity to vote now on the issue of unin-
corporation.
If the proponents of unincorporation disagree
with me and are willing to risk our chances of
receiving state and federal funds for wastewater
projects to satisfy their personal desire to dissolve
the two municipalities, they are free to follow the
procedures set out in each city's charter to force a
referendum vote.
While some may be willing to have higher
sewer costs incurred by the residents of Marathon
and Islamorada as a result of their actions, I am
not. I believe that as our state representative, I
owe my constituents my judgment based on my
experience. I am willing to take any criticism my
decision may create, justified or unjustified, as
long 1 believe I am acting in the best interests of
all the citizens of the Keys.

Basic boat knowledge can protect our flats


EDITOR:
Due to my recent weekends on the water and
watching the, visiting boaters run aground, I feel
compelled to share some of my basic knowledge
of boating in our fabulous waters surrounding
our precious islands. I encourage others to assist
me in this education of novice Keys boaters.
* Buy a couple of waterway maps. Top Spot
makes two great ones that you can pick up at
most boating supply shops and marinas.
* Get a pair of polarized glasses that allow
you to see the difference of color of the water.
The general rule of thumb: Brown brown run
aground, white white you just might, green green
nice and clean, blue, blue sail on through.
* Have your depth finder on and pay atten-
tion in the shallows. Don't run on a plane
straight toward an island unless you are positive
that there is not a flat there. Go slow. Up against
most islands are mud flats or grass flats and if
you start to get into shallow water, start raising
your engine and get into deeper water. Go back
to No. 1 - take some time to study), the maps
where you will be boating, look particularly at

Give a dog a break
EDITOR:
As a dog owner, I have always taken my pet
to the outdoor area of local restaurants. I have
done this many years without a single com-
plaint from anyone.
Restaurant operators should be allowed to
decide if they want to allow animals in outdoor
areas. If this is a problem with people, they can
always get tleir $100 meal somewhere else.
I always vote and wviiill remember how each
Marathon City Council member voted on this
issue during the next election.

the depths, know your draft and know how much
water you need to idle in without prop wash or
running aground. There are a million flats in our
waters. You have to pay attention and learn.
* If you do run aground, turn your engine off
and raise it. This is the law. If you have a pole,
attempt to pole yourself into deeper waters. If
not, get off the boat and walk your boat off until
you can safely drop your engine back down.
Keep some water shoes on board - it can be
mucky out there.
1 certainly am not claiming to be an expert
and I had the fortunate luck to have a flats cap-
tain teach me our local wafers when I moved
here. Maybe that's an idea: go out fishing with a
flats captain a few times and pick his or her brain
while you're out there catching fish.
Happy and safe boating to all.

More party boats could help industry


EDITOR:
In regards to the slowdown in
sportfishing reported in an article
posted Jan. 30, perhaps the sailfish
charter captains should consider
reconfiguring as party boats.
My husband and I go out fishing
on a half-day party boat at least once
every time we visit the Keys, and the
boats are always full - that's a lot of
income coming in twice a day, every
day, for the captain and crew. But it's


also an outing that a family can afford
- unlike a day out sailfishing.
In addition, and perhaps more
important, a half-day on the water hav-
ing fun fishing with your family is a
wonderful way to introduce your kids
and grandkids to the glories of the sea.
What better way to grow the next gen-
eration of recreational fishermen,
boaters and reef conservationists?

True sewer costs are out there somewhere


EDITOR:
I know I am not the brightest bulb
in the pack. However, even in my
mind a simple question stands out.
The Monroe County Commission
has been crying about the county
being broke for months, to the point it
has cut budgets, staff and county serv-
ices drastically. Yet a few weeks ago a
delegation went to Tallahassee (at tax-
payer expense) supposedly to seek
wastewater funding, which they
already knew they weren't going to
get because they hadn't complied with


the state's prior request for countv-
wide plans for completion. The mayor
even admitted he had no authority to
produce such a plan because of the
independent authorities in Marathon.
Key West, Islamorada and Key Largo.
Yet they went anyway.
Isn't what's good for the goose
(the taxpayers) good for the gander
(the commission)? Or just maybe we
are not getting the full facts on avail-
able funds.

A resort pool is not your personal toilet


EDITOR:
While visiting with family on a
recent weekend in Marathon, we had
the chance to observe something
rather disturbing and, well, downright
disgusting.
While relaxing on the pool deck of
a once-popular local resort, we
noticed what appeared to be several
caretakers of possibly disadvantaged
children varying in age from toddlers
to pre- teen. These children varied in
race and all seemed to be having a
good time, as children do.
I watched closely as one younger
child in particular removed his under-
pants/bathing suit repeatedly. One
female caretaker seemed quite
amused and simply watched as other
children came to his aid. Before you
know it, and I saw this coming, the
youngster again removed his under-
pants and began urinating in the pool.
Not only were my family and I


flabbergasted, but the rest of the pool
patrons as well as tiki-bar occupants.
Everyone fell quiet. The female care-
taker flamboyantly dressed for the
occasion just sat and watched him.
Start to finish. Need 1 say nobody
returned to the pool'?
This was a blatant disregard on the
caretaker's part. I'd have to question
why this woman is employed in such a
field if she cannot take the time to take
a child, who obviously needed to go.
to the restroom. compounded by addi-
tional disregard of those who were
using or planning on using the pool.
If I had known what agency was
represented here, I would surely noti-
fy a supervisor and/or superior. I've
heard it said before, they don't hire
them for their brains, and this was
classic evidence supporting an unfair
theory.

Waterfront vote veers


far from original intent


Could someone please explain how a
plan to protect our working waterfront
has turned into what amounts to a
development agreement?
Because that's what's happened since
our so-called leaders recognized sever-
al years ago that one of our traditional
industries, commercial fishing, was
fast going the way of lobster during
mini-season.
Tuesday, county Planning
Commissioner Sherry Popham quit in
disgust because of the way this went
down.
Monday, the County Commission
voted 3-2 for a law allegedly
designed to protect the unin-
corporated county's working
waterfront. That pretty much
means Stock Island, where
the few fishhouses remain.
Sonny McCoy, Dixie
Spehar and Mario Di
Gennaro voted yes without
even reading what they were
voting on, essentially giving
the go-ahead for a specific
development that would
include a hotel, upscale
housing, a retail area, restau- Larry
rants and some commercial Keynol
fishing.
The developer, New Stock
Island Properties, envisions a fisher-
men's wharf kind of complex rather
than just another upscale resort.
That might not be a bad idea: rede-
velopment is not a dirty word like so
many believe. Just look at Tranquility
Bay in Marathon, a gorgeous resort
that took the place of the burned-out
and broken-down Buccaneer Resort.
But what the commission passed
Monday strays so far from the original
intent. It's a site-specific ordinance
written in part by New Stock Island's
experts and attorneys that accomplish-
es - if it's allowed to stand by the
state, which is no sure bet - only one
thing, and that's construction of a com-
mercial complex.
It makes even less sense because
there's a moratorium on new hotels in
the unincorporated area. That's so the
county can come up with a logical per-
mit system that address hurricane
evacuation, workforce housing,
increased traffic, sewage and impacts
on the environment from such new
construction.
But this deal was not sold as a com-
mercial complex. It was sold as a


te


building to house emergency workers
in case a hurricane strikes. Which has
nothing to do with waterfront access
and maintaining what's left of our
commercial fishing industry.
To understand how off the mark this
is, recall that in January 2005, the
County. Commission voted to spend
$100,000 so the South Florida
Regional Planning Council and Florida
International University's Center for
Urban and Environmental Solutions
could come up with a waterfront plan
for the Keys. The idea was to stem the
tide of converting the waterfront to -
condo after high-end condo.
The underpinnings of that
Plan showed just how in
danger commercial fishing
is. It says that in 1999, the
dockside value of fish land-
ings in Monroe was $61
million. Three years later, it
had plummeted to $38 mil-
lion before rebounding to
$45 million in 2004.
To forestall more loss, the
study called for, in part:
* Amending land-use reg-
Kahn ulations to include incen-
'r Editor tives for the preservation of


the waterfront.
* Possible tax deferrals
for recreational and commercial work-
ing waterfronts.
* Looking at the feasibility of the
county buying development rights on
privately owned marinas to avoid their
redevelopment into high-end condos.
* Using the county's Land Authority
to acquire additional waterfront for
public access.
Monday, the commissioners ostensi-
bly were voting on what evolved from
that study. Instead, they approved,
among other things:
* Removing the phrase "no net loss"
of traditional waterfront uses from the
ordinance.
* Allowing construction of buildings
that could be up to 12 feet above the
allowable height limit of 35 feet.
So, I ask again, could someone tell
me how what is supposed to be a plan
to protect the working waterfront and
public shoreline access became a
development deal?
Because what passed Monday, and
what Popham quit over Tuesday, is an
ordinance aimed at preserving a
lifestyle but instead could spell its
demise.

110 affordable units OK'd for Upper Keys


Planning board
gives approval-
to Northstar
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Planning
Commission Tuesday gave a
green light to a plan that will cre-
ate 110 affordable homes in the
Upper Keys.


In a unanimous vole, the com-
mission approved a development
agreement for Lake Gardens, a
development of 110 affordable
attached units for sale to middle-
income residents. The plans also
include 13 market-rate units, a
clubhouse and day-care center.
One speaker at Tuesday's pub-
lic hearing warned the commis-
sion about further development.
Mike Black, a Key Largo resi-


dent, noted that the county is
already exceeding its draw on
potable water sources.
"1 appreciate the comments
about the scarcity of water,"
Commissioner Sherry Popham
said (she resigned later in the day
in protest of a County
Commission vote). "I appreciate
the flag being raised."
But, she said, it's not time to
use potential water shortages
across the board when making
development decisions.


Acevedo gets challenger


Keynoter Staff


Former Marathon High School
principal Fred Colvard has filed
with the Monroe County Super-
visor of Elections to run against
School District Superintendent
Randy Acevedo in November.
Colvard, a Republican, retired
in 2003 after two years at the
helm in Marathon.
He has close to 40 years of
school experience working as a
teacher, coach, principal, assis-
tant principal and superintendent


in five states. Currently he's a
Realtor working with his wife at
The Waterfront Specialists in
Marathon.
Democratic incumbent
Acevedo is seeking a second
four-year term. Before his elec-
tion, Acevedo worked for the
School District as its executive
director of business and financial
services. He has worked for the
district since 1992.
Acevedo firmly defeated his


predecessor, John Padget, a Key
West businessman who had been
tagged by then-Gov. Jeb Bush in
1994 to fill the shoes of long-time
Superintendent Michael Lannon.
Lannon resigned to take the job
of superintendent of schools in
St. Lucie County.
When Acevedo and Padget
squared off in the November
2004 race, it brought out count-
less schools employees to lobby
on both men's behalf. Since then,
politicking among schools staff
has been toned down.

Northstar Resort Enterprises,
which is building a hotel on land
it owns at mile marker 99, is
seeking 110 affordable-employee
allocations for the Lake View
Gardens site at mile marker 106.
It's giving 47 market-rate alloca-
tions to the county.
"I guess you could call it a
trade," said Joel Reed, a land-use
planner and agent for the owner.
"We'll need the 110 affordable
[permit] allocations, and the
county does have the allocations
available," Reed said. "With such
a large project, it's important to
know we have those [allocations]
set aside before starting."
Reed said the cost would be
approximately $200,000 for the


two-bedroom units and $267,000
for the three-bedroom units.
The developers hope to have
some of the units completed by
the end of the year, Reed said.
Under Tuesday's approval, the
affordable units will be required
to bear a deed restriction to keep
them affordable. In addition,
Northstar will need to provide
proof from the Key Largo
Wastewater Treatment District
that it's been connected to sani-
tary sewers and can support 123
homes, or a letter from the Health
Department saying the current
sewage treatment plant has been
upgraded to accommodate addi-
tional units.

Salary cuts off bounds


More services
on the block
to chop budget
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Monroe County employees
whose names are not on the lay-
off list breathed a sign of relief
Monday after being reassured
there would be no across-the-
board salary cuts.
Acting County Administrator
Debbie Frederick told the
County Commission during a
special meeting in Key West that


Teamsters Local 769 did not ask
the county to make the salary
cuts to save jobs.
The question came up during
a Jan. 25 budget-cutting session.
Union representative David
Renshaw told the commission
the union had been unaware of
proposed layoffs. He asked for
some time to come back with a
possible proposal that would suit
county employees who are union
members.
The County Commission has
directed Frederick to shave $4
million off the operating budget.
She came forward with the first
round of cuts amounting to $.2.3
million and doing away with 30
jobs. Twenty of those positions
are union, she says.
Renshaw did not recommend
cutting salaries for existing
employees, Frederick told the
commissioners.
Frederick said the specter of
possible salary cuts was weigh-
ing heavy on the minds of coun-
ty employees, and she asked the
commission to vote "as verifica-
tion that there is no salary reduc-
tion at this time."


The vote was unanimous.
Though the salaries won't be
rolled back, more jobs could end
up being cut before all is said
and done. Frederick and her staff
are now looking at other areas
where money can be saved.
So far, the cuts have been
taken out of the county's general
fund only.
"We're looking at some of the
other funds now," she told the
Keynoter. "It's going to be really
tough to go deeper than we just
did. What's left is quality-of-life
services. We heard the commis-
sion say it doesn't want to cut the
libraries, the extension service.
But this is deep, so we have to
find places to cut."
In January, the commission
gave Frederick the nod to hire
accountant Peter Rosasco to help
cut the budget, and she hopes
he'll find some less painful cuts.
Rosasco, who also works for
the city of Marathon, helped craft
the county's current budget.
Then-County Administrator Tom
Willi temporarily hired Rosasco
in August after suspending and
later firing county Budget
Director Sal Zappulla. Willi him-
self was fired in December.


Richard and Mary Beth Martel were unsure about adopting
Shooter from the shelter, but he has traveled as far as the Arctic
Circle with them and become part of the family.


Shooter the dog

gets national fame


By RYAN McCARTHY
niinccn I ii (a(ikeynoitercomn


A 3-year-old Dalmatian
named Shooter may well -have
saved Stand Up for Animals, a
shelter in Marathon in danger of
closing as part of budget cuts by
Monroe County.
Shelter director Linda
Gottwald called Shooter, who
finished third recently in a
nationwide photo contest held by
Circuit City and Kodak called
"Find the Next Firedog." a
Cinderella story.
"It couldn't have come in a
more timely manner; we were
reeling from the budget cuts,"
Gottwald said. "They had told
SUFA they were going to elimi-
nate the Middle Keys shelters
and keep Marathon open on a
limited basis."
Gottwald received an e-mail
from Monroe County Director of
Community Services Deb Barsell
on Jan. 22 that read. "I want to
advise you that we do not plan to
renew your contract that terms onl
June 30, 2008, for animal control
services with the county. This
action will reduce the costs of
animal control for the county."
"The [County Commission]
decided to cut $17,000 across the
board from each shelter instead,"
Gottwald said, noting a large
group of supporters who showed
up at the Feb. 1 budget meeting.
Monroe County is in the midst of
cutting $4 million from this
year's budget.
The county funds three shel-
ters: Florida Keys Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
in Key West, the Humane Animal
Care Coalition in Key Largo and


Stand Up for Animals. The SPCA
receives $365,625 annually from
the county, while the Care
Coalition receives $264,761 and
Stand Up gets $248,598.
Shooter raised a total of
$5,414 for Stand Up For
Animals, as a dollar was donated
for each vote cast online. First
prize was a $50.000 donation to
the shelter.
Shooter beat out 7.000
entrants to be one of 20 finalists
in the contest and beat out dogs
from Atlanta, Las Vegas, Fort
Lauderdale and other big cities to
take third overall.
His owner, Mary Beth Martel,
said she found out about the con-
test last minute from a fellow vol-
unteer at the shelter. Martel does
photography work for the shel-
ter's Web site.
"She forwarded [an e-mail] to
me and I said, 'I'll give it a
whirl,'" Martel said. "I submitted
it the day before the deadline."
Martel said Shooter has
become something of a local
celebrity in the wake of his
achievements.
"I bring him anywhere and it's
phenomenal how the amount of
people that say they yoted for
him. We want to thank everyone
for doing that," she said.
Martel met Shooter at the
shelter and, though she said she
was initially unsure whether a
dog would fit in her and husband
Richard's life, eventually adopted
him.
"I was there doing a shoot and
1 decided to put my camera down
and play and that was it," she
joked.

Library cuts begin in March


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.comn

New shorter hours for
Monroe County libraries kick in
at the beginning of March, and
county Community Services
Director Deb Barsell says they
will be posted at the various
branches as soon as they're
hammered out.
Last month, the County
Commission approved a series
of cuts to library hours as part
of a countywide rollback in
light of budget shortfalls. Those
cutbacks mean libraries in Key
West, Marathon, Islamorada
and Key Largo will be cut back
from opening six days a week to
five.
"The Big Pine Key branch is
already only open five days, so


it won't change." Barsell said.
"We'll probably be cutting
Monday, so the libraries will
probably be closed Sunday and
Monday."
Library support groups
across the Keys are concerned
about the cutbacks.
"Our library offers a commu-
nity," Islamorada Friends of the
Library President Elizabeth
Jolin said. "It's a resource for a
lot of people who work in our
town. It's a place to use the
computer, check e-mail. There
are five computers completely
available for people who can't
afford one in their home and I
don't think that's a small popu-
lation."
Marathon Mayor . Pete


Worthington asked the County
Commission during a Jan. 25
budget-cutting session to do
what it could to leave libraries
unscathed.
"If there's any way we can
somehow figure how to get
through these budget cuts with-
out impacting the services the
library has been providing," he
said. "It's essential for a lot of
people."
"We would never get rid of
any of the libraries," county
Mayor Sonny McCoy assured
Worthington. "That is the
expression of a civilization."
In Key. West, Friends of the
Library member Bob Muens
pulled together some statistics
that show how vital the local
library is to the community. In
fiscal 2006-07, he says, 550,000


people visited Monroe County
libraries, a 27 percent increase
since 2001-02.
More than half the county's
population holds a library card.
So far this year, he says, an
average of 400 new members a
month have signed up for cards
throughout the county.
Muens says more than
16,000 kids participated in
library reading and storytelling
programs in the county in 2007.
That's a 44 percent increase
over the previous year, he says,
and a 79 percent increase since
2001-02.
"I think people forget how
important the libraries are for
our kids," Jolin said. "We have
strong libraries in or schools,
but the public libraries enhance
what they get in the schools."


Bicyclists see benefits, danger


I Weekly Boat Test


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Last year, 30 accidents
involved bicycles and 185 bicy-
cles were stolen in Key West,
according to numbers from the
Key West Police Department.
That department says it's start-
ing to crack down on riders who
violate traffic laws while Naval
Air Station Key West enforces a
strict, national rule that requires
bicyclists on U.S. Navy bases to
wear helmets.
If you're enlisted, base
spokesman Jim Brooks says, you
have to wear a helmet even if out-
side the base. And if a civilian
bicyclist approaches the entry
gate of a Navy base without a hel-
met, there's no getting by, he said.
Though it's no Amsterdam,
many Key Westers ride bicycles,
as the 2-by-4-mile island makes
an ideal community for the
healthy, environmental friendly
means of transportation.
"When I stopped riding my
bicycle, I think I put on 10
pounds," city housing consultant
Ty Symroski said. In 1998, he
started riding his "bicycle all over
town, unless I have meetings on
the opposite side of the island."
But on an island covered with
out-of-town drivers, bicyclists are
also putting themselves at risk of
injury, or attention from law
enforcement.
Lower Keys Medical Center
Emergency Department Manager


Sandy Rodriguez said she sees
various bicycle accidents, from
multiple traumas to wrist injuries.
"I would say we see at least
one person a day that had some
kind of bicycle" accident,
Rodriguez said. "A lot of it is
alcohol related."
"I frequently see calls for
service where deputies stop bicy-
clists for not having proper light-


ing on their bikes, or for other
violations.... Most of the time we
issue warnings," Monroe County
Sheriff's Office spokeswoman
Becky Herrin said.
The city Police Department's
crackdown restricts riders from
cycling the opposite direction on
a one-way street and requires
them to yield to pedestrians on
sidewalks and to have nightlights
visible 500 feet on the front and
600 feet on the back.

More science slows park plan


Alternative E
still on table
for Everglades
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Efforts to improve the science
behind revisions to the
Everglades National Park general
management plan has slowed the
process, park officials say.
A set of revised alternatives
for Florida Bay was expected to
be released in January, according


to a timeline discussed at last
July's workshops by Everglades
Superintendent Dan Kimball.
"A lot of the public comments
questioned the science, and they
were legitimate questions," park
spokeswoman Linda Friar said.
"We pulled together a science
team to perform a better assess-
ment."
A slate of revisited alterna-
tives could be released by ate
March or during April, she said.
"There quite literally were
thousands and thousands of com-
ments. Just going through them


Keys briefs


Intracoastal closes
for Stretch work

The Intracoastal Waterway is
scheduled to be closed at the
Jewfish Creek Bridge on the 18-
Mile Stretch from 8 p.m. Friday
to 5:30 a.m. Saturday and again
from 8 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m.
Tuesday.
The closure is necessary so
beams can be placed on the new
bridge.
Also, the northbound lane of
U.S. 1 at mile marker 107 will
be closed from 8:30 p.m. tonight
to 5:30 a.m. Thursday, and from


10 p.m. Friday to 5:30 a.m.
Saturday.
While one lane of U.S. 1 is
closed, northbound and south-
bound traffic will use the other
lane alternately, and a flagger
will direct traffic through the
work zone. Motorists might
experience delays of up to 10
minutes during the closures, and
can use Card Sound Road as an
alternate route, but must pay the
standard toll.
The speed limit is 35 mph
from mile marker 106 to 108
and 45 mph from approximately
108 to 116.


was a slow process," Friar said.
Hundreds of Florida Keys
anglers and residents turned out
last summer to protest possible
scenarios released by park staff in
preparation for the general man-
agement revision.
For discussion purposes, the
Park Service produced maps
depicting four alternatives.
Alternative A would change noth-
ing; the most restrictive -
Alternative D - envisions ban-
ning motors in vast swaths of
shallow bay motor.
The most extreme of those
suggested banning boat motors in
large sections of Florida Bay, and
in waters less than 3 feet deep.
Much of Florida Bay is shallow,
but many boats used in South
Florida require only inches of
water to run safely.
Anglers also questioned the
extent of propeller scarring that
was cited as a reason for some of
the proposed closures.
A group headed by Upper
Keys anglers and guides crafted
their own Alternative E. which
keeps large areas of the bay open
to fishing but proposes to estab-
lish licensing requirements.


Most of the problems in the
bay are caused by boaters unfa-
miliar with the area's tricky navi-
gation, say Alternative E backers.
The Monroe County Commis-
sion, Islamorada Village Council
and several business groups also
endorsed Alternative E.
Said Friar, "When the revised
alternatives are released, we
expect they will go into greater
detail, which would help alleviate
some of the concerns in the com-
munity down there."


First Lady visit
First Lady Laura Bush will
visit the Everglades today in an
event aimed at promoting park
protection.
Fifth-graders from Florida
City Elementary School will
meet with Bush in the program
organized by the National Parks
Foundation.
A nationwide essay contest for
youngsters will be announced,
focusing on national-park issues
like exotic species.

2008: Year of


filing dangerously


Vast changes
to tax laws
cause confusion
McClatchy Tribune

Filing your taxes has never
been fun. But this tax-filing sea-
son is shaping up as one to dread
because of extraordinarily late
changes in tax laws, outdated or
erroneous instructions and
forms, increasing complexity


and the widening gulf between
federal and state tax rules.
Among the developments that
could spur you to down a few
extra Advil:
* The Internal Revenue
Service won't even start process-
ing returns - and refunds - for
as many as 13.5 million
Americans until Feb. 11. It could
have been much worse. The IRS

See TAXES / 16


How we file


* Individual federal tax
returns in 2007:140 million.
* Returns with refunds:

* Refunds sent via

Check these overlooked tax breaks


Some deductions
you might not
be aware of
McClatchy Tribune

You could fill a fat book with
often-overlooked tax breaks - in
fact, many such guides jockey for
shelf space at bookstores


throughout the tax season. Here
are just some of the dozens of
deductions, credits and other tax-
saving ideas that could be worth
exploring more deeply.

Employees
* Excess payroll deductions
for state disability insurance if
you held two or more jobs.


* Job-hunting expenses if you
sought work in your current
occupation.
* Labor union dues.
* Education expenses
required by law or your employ-
er.
* Moving expenses.
* Protective clothing required
at work.

Babycakes' owner Shanann
Mitchell plans to expand
her hours.

Babycakes
Islamorada
Moms in the Upper Keys
will be pleased to see the
opening Babycakes (mile
marker 80) in the Galleria
Shopping Mall in
Islamorada. Shanann
Mitchell decided to open the
store, which carries essen-
tials for children ages new-
born to 7, after having her
son two and a half years ago.
"After I had my son Jake,
I realized that we needed a
different kind of baby store
around here." she said,
"something that would offer
apparel and gifts that
weren't geared toward the
tourists."
Mitchell has been in retail
for 17 years. She was origi-
nally going to open a differ-
ent type of boutique, but
after she saw the challenges
of shopping for a baby in the
Keys, she changed her mind.
"The idea of my store
was to be there for the local
mom," she said. "This way
they can avoid the whole
Internet thing or the trip to
Miami with a little kid. I
geared my store to the moms
that are into the hip, new and
trendy type stuff. That was
my vision for this."
One item that has been a
huge seller is the Fleurville
diaper bags, which are high-
end and eco-friendly.
Babycakes is open from
11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday
through Friday, but Mitchell
plans to extend hours in the
future. Call 664-2996.










Delays and confusion can be costly to taxpayers


TAXES / From 15

originally estimated it might
delay processing as many 50
million taxpayers until mid-
March.
+ Tax preparers warn they
might probe deeper into your
deductions because they face
stiffer penalties if you're caught
cheating.
In short, taxpayers face an
increasingly daunting task. Last
year, the average taxpayer spent
26.4 hours - three full work-
days plus a bit of overtime - just
to complete the 1040, the IRS


estimates.
If you're among the taxpayers
who can't file yet, the explana-
tion for your headache starts
with partisan politics. You're
hardly alone. In her annual
report to Congress, National
Taxpayer Advocate Nina E.
Olson, the watchdog armnn of the
IRS, identified the 26 biggest
problems facing taxpayers.
Enemy No. 1: Congress itself.
Lawmakers failed until late
December to pass a much-antici-
pated one-year alternative mini-
mum tax "patch." That legisla-
tion saved an estimated 25 mil-
lion extra taxpayers from owing


Uncle Sam an average of $2,345
more on April 15.
But the partisan impasse over
how to pay for the lost revenue
left the IRS and taxpayers in a
bind. Taxpayers risk working
from outdated instruction book-
lets and forms because the com-
promise came weeks after the
IRS had sent them to the printer.
"*'Don't believe everything
you read," quipped Bob Scharin,
senior tax analyst for Thomson
Tax & Accounting in New York.
And the agency is still scram-
bling to rewrite its software code
to process tax returns. The IRS
warns that it will be unable to


process from 3 million to 13.5
million returns until Feb. 11 -
potentially delaying up to $39
billion in refunds.
The irony is that patching the
so-called "tax on the rich" will
mostly affect taxpayers who
wouldn't have owed it. But the
software mess affects taxpayers
seeking five credits that run the
gamut from defraying college
bills to caring for a child.
Such delays and confusion
can be costly, Olson said. For the
2006 tax year, Congress failed to
extend a number of expired tax
breaks until after the IRS had
printed its forms and vendors


had pressed their shrink-
wrapped tax software.
Ultimately, Olson said, taxpay-
ers claimed the affected deduc-
tions 1.4 million fewer times
because they apparently didn't
know about them, followed out-
dated IRS instructions or failed
to update their software before
filing their returns.
"People are suffering because
of politicians' procrastination
and stubbornness and political
agendas," said Lynn Freer, editor
of the Spidell's California
Taxletter.

Crowds fill the Marathon Community Park during last year's Pigeon Key Art Festival. This year's takes place this weekend, as does
Pigeon Poop, a small show designed for local artists.



Pigeon Key art fest flies in again

National event takes place this weekend in the Middle Keys


It's not on Pigeon Key any-
more, but the Pigeon Key Art
Festival, long a Middle Keys tra-
dition, is right around the coer,.
The world-class art shoxw,
whose sole purpose is raising
money for the preservation of
historic Pigeon Key, draws thou-
sands of visitors to the Keys and
has become a favorite local event.
The 14th annual edition is from
10 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Saturday
and Sunday at the Marathon
Community Park. mile marker
49.
The site will be virtually cov-
ered in watercolors, oil paintings.
acrylics, sculpture, jewelry, pho-
tography, graphic arts. pottery,.
glass and other fine art showcas-
ing Florida themes.
More than 75 artists selected
from throughout the country are
to exhibit their work. Judges will
award prizes for best of show,
and first and second place in nine
categories.
Marathon's owxn swinging
pirate Rocket Man will be the
master of ceremonies both days
as well as play his own i brand of


island music, calypso, country
and oldies.
Saturday's music \\ill include
Dan Sulli\an playing from 10:30
a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Concluding the
halt of the dax, performing from 1
to 4 p.m.. will be the locals
favorite Florida Straits Band.
Playing Sunday from 10:30

Pigeon Poop also arrives


Organizers say everything is
ready for a cultural event that's
become affectionately known
as the Pigeon Poop.
Scheduled for Saturday and
Sunday at the Winn
Dixie/Kmart plaza just a mile
north of the Marathon
Community Park, the locals'
art show corresponds with the
annual Pigeon Key Art Show.
In fact. the tongue-in-cheek
Pigeon Poop moniker was
derived from the simultaneous-
ly held national show.
The Pigeon Key show has
been held for years and attracts
artists from across the country.
Its popularity among artists has
meant many Keys artists have
had difficulty in successfully
applying for inclusion.
That's what led to the simul-
taneous art show, held in
Marathon the same weekend,
five years ago. Its name is


because it's a smaller, less-
widely-known local event.
Organizer Glenn Lahti said
the whimsical Pigeon Poop
title is just a way for locals to
"poke a little fun at ourselves."
Despite the unofficial name,
the show is a quality event
attracting a wide variety of tal-
ented artists, Lahti says.
The 2008 version will boast
about 40 artists, the maximum
number that can be accommo-
dated at the show site. Like the
Pigeon Key show. Pigeon Poop
runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday.
Admission and parking are
free.

feel. buy wood carvings.

ings, photography, scrimshaw,

"We didn't graduate any sen-

returning; all our starters have
been starting the last two sea-
sons at the same positions," Leal
said. The Dolphins have 15
returning players, including


seven seniors. They have just
four sophomores and one fresh-
man on the roster.
The Dolphins have been prac-
ticing since Jan. 14, Leal said.
Leal said junior Toby Eigner
will be the Dolphins' No. 1
pitcher again this season.
"He did a lot for us last year.
He had all of our wins and
almost every game he pitched


was a complete game. He aver-
aged seven innings pitched, so
he's a workhorse," he said.
Eigner started nine games last
year and went 3-5 with a 3.50

54 innings, struck out 34 hitts
and walked only 11.

Now it's time for the Lady
Hurricanes to get the key run at

"Last year we played six
games decided by one run, and

"Now that we've matured a

The Lady Canes open the

Nine regulars, including sw,

Just once. Michael
Gallagher would like to find
out what it's like to win a
District 16-4A basketball game
away from home.
It hasn't happened in his
three seasons on the Key West
High School boys team. but
there will be another chance at
4 p.m. today when the Conchs
play Edison in the first round of
the district tournament at St.
Brendan High in Miami.
"It's what I really want."
Gallagher, a senior guard, said
after the Conchs closed the reg-
ular season Saturday afternoon
with a 69-35 victory over La
Progresivia Presbyterian. "I
don't want the basketball sea-
son to be over."
"We already beat Edison
[55-52 in Key West], so it
shouldn't be too difficult," he
added.
Reflecting on what probably
was his last game at the Bobby
Menendez Gym, Gallagher,
who expects to play college
football next fall, smiled and
said, "I'll miss the crowds, the
people cheering and calling my
name."
The crowd Saturday was
composed of only about 70

"Our pitchers have all been
throwing at the varsity level
since ninth grade. They won't
see anything they haven't seen
before," Leal said.
The Dolphins are a District
16 Class 2A team that plays
against strong Miami high
school programs Westminster

Westwood Christian and Miami
Christian. Last year, Marathon
finished the regular season at 3-
12.
Offensively. Leal said the
Dolphins will look to seniors
Sean 0' Connor, Chris Garrett
and J.P. McCabe to carry the
load.
O'Connor, who will play cen-
terfield, hit .435 with two home
runs, 10 walks, 10 runs batted in
and eight stolen bases last sea-
son. Leal said both Division 1
and II1 schools have recruited
him heavily.
"Sean is a strong kid with a
great textbook swing [who] hits


for power," Leal said.
Leal said Garrett has commit-
ted to play for the University of
Tampa next season. The
Spartans are two-time defending
national champions at the
Division II level.
McCabe hit .457 last year
with eight RBI and no strike-
outs.
With the quality of programs
in their district, Leal said the
Dolphins will rely on pitching
and improved defense to win
games this season.
"A lot of these schools we
play are so much bigger and
stronger," he said. "We're going
to have rely on the seniors to not
make mistakes we made last
year. Last year we had a team
batting average of over .300, but
for every run it seemed like we
gave up two unearned."
Leal pointed to Eigner. who
last year gave up 55 runs in 54
innings on the mound. Only 27
of them were earned. -

Lady Canes eye district crown


Lacrosse opens
at 6 tonight
with Palmetto
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Coral Shores High seems like-
ly to be the host of the girls
lacrosse district tournament in
April, Lady Hurricane coach
Mark Hall said, so the Lady Canes
should do their best to win it.
That path begins at 6 p.m.
today when the Hurricanes open
the regular season at home
against Palmetto.
"It's a big game for us because
we beat them twice in district
play-'last year. They want to get
even," Hall said.
Coral Shores returns 14 expe-
rienced players and has added a
big crew of freshmen for a roster
topping out at 32.
"We expect to have a pretty
good showing this season," Hall
said. "We've got a nice mix of
experience and young freshmen
just starting out."
At the urging of the veterans,
Hall added two more preseason
practices each week. "They want
to improve," Hall said. "Having
experienced players around really
has helped the younger ones.
They're coming along very well."
Coral Shores graduated four


seniors off last year's 4-8 club,
including points leader (goals and
assists) Darcy Spaulding and
standout goalie Sara Taylor. Both
received invitations to play at the
college level.
Rachel Catanio should be the
Hurricanes' main scoring threat
this spring, ranking second on the
team last year to Spaulding in
points, 44 to 42.
Others coming back to the
program include Alison Rhyne,
Anna Noe, Brittany Wood,
Kelsey Garcia, Corina Havlig,
Kelsey Seyfried, Melissa Sante,
Lexi Glista, Lindsey Burley,
Melissa Mott, Samantha Valdes,
Vallarie Ostenson and Xotchil
Musser.
One freshman, Dannon
Magrane, likely has played her
way into a starting spot at goalie.
Despite last year's modest
winning percentage of .333, the
Lady Canes nearly broke even on
goals-scored (127) and goals-
allowed (130).
"That tells me we should have
a pretty potent offense that knows
how to score," Hall said.
Coral Shores took part in last
weekend's preseason jamboree,
playing four 20-minute scrim-
mages and going 2-2.
The Hurricanes beat Killian,
3-1, and South Plantation, 6-1.
Palmetto edged Coral Shores,
4-3. Hall sgid different lineups

the Hurricanes stability on the
mound, essential to any success
on the high-school diamond.
Sophomore outfielder Andrea
Cockerham and Ciara Sanchez
each hit better than .370 last
year, while sophomore catcher
Chelsea Russell and Given were
.300-plus hitters.
Infielders Shelby Gentes and
Lauren Sanchez return, along
with outfielders Tessie Worden,
Courtney Moellnar and Rosie
Malzacher.
The Lady Canes graduated
only two senior starters off last
season's club that finished 4-10.
Sophomore Ashley Singleton,
up from the junior varsity, has a
shot at winning a starting berth.
So do athletic freshmen Michelle


Sexton and Raychel Stephenson.
Fielding errors and what
Young described as "silly little
mistakes" cost Coral Shores
dearly in several games last
year.
"Whenever we don't get a
put-out that we should, that
maybe gives up a run and leaves
the team out there in a sun a lit-
tle longer," Grewe said. "Then
in the late innings, we don't
have the energy that we need."
Coral Shores scheduled 18
regular-season games, including
two against local rival Marathon
High School. Coral Shores is
not scheduled to play Key West
this spring.
After Thursday's opener, the
Canes travel to face perennial
District 16-3A contender
Gulliver Prep on Tuesday.


expected to play today could
change that result.
"Taravella shut us out, 5-0, but
that was a good lesson," Hall
said. "They play a zone defense
which we don't see often. We'll


learn from that."
After the Palmetto match, both
Coral Shores lacrosse teams play
at home Friday against Palmer
Trinity. The girls play at 5:30
p.m. and the boys at 7.


The Lady Canes travel U,.
Miami Country Day on Tuesday.
Results from the boys' sched-
uled season opener, on the road at
Pines Charter earlier this week,
were not available at press time.

Comeback falls short


Lady Conchs
end the year
with 14-7 mark
By DICK WAGNER
Keynotilr (.'i11NiblIor1

A fourth-quarter comeback
fell short, and the best Key West
High School girls basketball sea-
son in a decade ended in disap-
pointment Friday night when the
Conchs lost to St. Brendan, 60-
58., in the District 16-4A semifi-
nals.
A victory would have put Key
West into the championship game
and ensured it a spot in the
regional playoffs. As it turned
out, St. -rendan defeated
Monsignor Pace. 40-26, for the
title Satumday night, and both of
those teams will advance.
Playing on St. Brcndan 's courl
in Miami, the Conchs had to
endure a raucous crowd. "It was a
hostile atmosphere." coach Glenn
Hayes Sr. said. "Their fans were
calling our girls names. It wasn't
sportsmanlike."
The Conchs. who had defeat-
ed the Sabres a week earlier.
almost pulled the game out after
trailing by 10 points with 1:27 to
play.
Successive 3-point shots by
Ja'Taure Mathis and Chelsea
Storr tied the game at 58-58. but
a missed layup prevented the


, - - - -

'''***) J


Conchs from taking the lead.
With five seconds left, St.
Brendan made two free throws,
after which the Conchs could
only inbound the ball.
"It was very emotional after
the game," Mathis said.
"Everybody was very upset and
angry.
Hayes said he believed the
officiating was a factor - "I felt
there were some calls that
shouldn't have been called."
The Sabres attempted nine
more free throws, making 17 of
35. Still, the Conchs could have
won the game from the foul line,
but, as had happened all season,


accuracy eluded them. They were
nine for 26.
Storr led the Conchs with 14
points; Barnett had 13, and
Mathis and Samantha Campbell
each scored eight.
"I told our girls they had noth-
ing to be ashamed of," said
Hayes, who turned a team that
was 3-17 last season into one that
finished 14-7. It was the first win-
ning season, Hayes said, since the
late '90s, when Glenwood Lopez
was the coach.
Off their 15-girl roster, the
Conchs will lose only Campbell,
a junior who will transfer, and
seniors Kristen Babich and
Margaret Kehoe.

Hughes returning to football Conchs


New coach
replaces James,
Davis not pleased
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Dipping into the recycling
bin, Key West High School has
asked Jerry Hughes to again be
its football coach.


Hughes, who has yet to
accept the offer, is a Key West
graduate who played for the
Conchs in the 1960s and
returned to coach them in 1997
and '98, leading the team into
the playoffs both seasons.
"His resume and experience,
along with the ability to put stu-
dents into college, was impres-
sive and hard to ignore," said


athletic director Peter Fraga,-
who was on the selection com-
mittee with assistant principals
Chris Valdez and Dave Perkins,
broadcaster Rick Lopez and
businessman Sam Holland.
At Key West. Hughes
coached Ran Carthon and
Leandre Washington, who went

University, respectively.

adding that Hughes did not want
to speak with reporters.
Hughes - who would suc-

He has also coached at
Southridge and Southwest high
schools and was a college assis-

his career as a Conch assistant in
the early '70s.
He was chosen over a number
of current assistant coaches and
Paul Davis, who last season
coached a 5-1 JV team that gen-
crated optimistic discussions
among fans about the future.
Disappointed that he wasn't
selected, Davis said on Saturday
that it was "a slap in the face"
and that he would not return as
JV coach or accept a position as
an assistant varsity coach.
Monday, however, after meet-
ing with Hughes at the school,
he said he might change his
mind. "I'm going to think about
it for a week," said Davis, who's


also the boys varsity basketball
coach. --v
Fraga said Davis was "seri-
ously considered and the com-
mittee discussed all of his
strengths."
Hughes is expected to accept
the position after settling retire-
ment issues in Miami-Dade
County, Fraga said.

Fishing


Offshore
,' Calm seas for most of the
week made for the opportu-
nity to ride offshore. The two
close humps are the 409 off
Long Key and the
Islamorada Hump 12 miles
southeast of Islamorada.
The catches for most
charterboats were blackfm
tuna, but they were on the
small side. Footballs, as they
are referred to, are in the 3-
to 5-pound range.

Reef
With the unseasonably
calm and warm weather, the
sailfish bite was a little off
the past week.
Capt. Paul O'Donnell on
the Skipper from Whale
Harbor Marina got the
Speedos for bait and below
Alligator Reef Lighthouse
found a pack of big king
mackerel in 135 feet of
water. He said the bait was
difficult to get and it took all
day, but in the end was
worth it - the kings were
from 18 to 31 pounds.
Even though February is
not considered prime yellow-
tail snapper season, some
caught the snapper pretty
well.

Gulf, bay
The last-quarter moon
phase occurred Jan. 30 and
made for a very slow tidal
situation. Anglers fishing
around Sand) Key, Cape
Sable and on the Sprigger
Bank mackerel area com-
plained of little oi no current
all day.

Flats, backcountry
First and foremost, snook
season is closed in Februar.
in the Gulf of Mexico.
Everglades National Park
and Monroe County. But it's
open up to the north in the
_. Atlantic zone.
Capt. "Big D" from Whale
Harbor once again had a cou-
ple of trips where he caught
multiple bonefish per trip.
The fish are in schools in 2 to
4 feet of water to the west of
Islamorada.

Dave Navarro


If you
travel into
the bay
waters, say
about 5 to 7
miles out
into the
taller grass
b o t t o m
areas, put
out a good
chum line
with the
double -
ground
chum; you


should be able to catch dinner in
a very short time.
Snapper, grouper, cobia and
mackerel have been all over with
a good mix of redfish, trout and
many others appearing in the
chum lines of almost every angler
I have talked with. Catching your
limit has not been the issue; the
issue is what would you do with
all of the fish if you didn't release
the extras? That's when it is fun.
Many of our visiting anglers
are not comfortable with the bay,
mostly due to the fact that they
fear the many flats, banks and
shoals throughout most of the
region. There are good ways to
work the bay and transverse it
without even a bit of a concern.
All it takes is a little planning and
a little knowledge.
You can get both at this
week's free fishing seminar at our
Marine Educational Center, mile
marker 49.5 bayside. We'll cover
all the ways to get to the good
spots and back again. After all,
the best trip you take is a round
trip. And with all of the options of
species to catch, calm seas to
work in and some of the best
action you can find, it's a shame

Chelsea Jeffers of Davie in Broward County enjoys fishing and
family time aboard the 'Fishlips' captained by her father, Jim.
The 12-year-old landed this 8-pound snapper just outside
Channel 5 in Islamorada. Snapper's just one of numerous
species out there for the taking lately.


if you don't work the bay waters
of our islands more often.
The seminar is at 6 p.m.
Thursday.
For those heading to the reef,
yellowtail have been awesome in
and along the sharper drop-offs
from 50 feet and deeper. A Cy Fly
tipped with a very small piece of
meat has been producing some
very large fish. Add a strip of flu-
orocarbon leader in front of the
Cy Fly and you will be just about
unstoppable.
Along the bottom, place a live
bait, rigged ballyhoo or whole
squid on a heavy rod and stand by
to have your rod holder tested for
strength and durability, (use cau-
tion when taking the rod out of
the holder or you will be in the
store replacing what the big one
took from you).
' fJg ,ballyhoo, whole squid


or live bait on a flat line beyond
your yellowtailing for some big
kingfish to frequent your chum
line. Depending on the current,
you may need to add a float to the
line to keep it up in the water col-
umn. If you are in more than 60
feet of water, you may luck into a
passing sailfish, as well.
That's what nice about the
Keys fishing - you never know
just what you are going to hook
up with for sure.
The offshore edge has been
alive with sails, kings, tunas,
wahoo and even some dolphin.
The conditions have varied from
day to day, which has made the
assortment of boats fishing these
waters as well as the styles of
fishing interesting. A mixed
report has come in just about

'Wound Up'


winds up with


the Gold Cup


24 sailfish
lead the series
for mainlanders
The three-tournament quest
for the Florida Keys Gold Cup
ended Jan. 24, with the conclu-
sion of the Islamorada Fishing
Club Sailfish Tournament.
Capt. John Dudas of Miami
led the Wound Up team to win the
Gold Cup, scoring 24 sailfish
releases during the series, which
also included the Islamorada
Sailfish Tournament and the
Cheeca Presidential Sailfish
Tournament.
The team consisted of Dudas'
brother Brett Dudas of Fort
Lauderdale, Roy Huff of
Homestead and Warren and
Janice Sands of Pinecrest. The
teammates have fished competi-
tively together for six years and


have 14 tournaments on their
schedule this season.
"The Gold Cup is a very big
deal in the sailfishing world,"
Warren Sands said.
Second place went to the No
Mercy with 20 total releases.
Anglers Rob Ruwitch, Albert
Castro and Rick Arnold, all of
Miami, and Mike Causley of
Homestead fished with Capt.
Steve Cunningham of Miami.
Arnold was the high-point
angler for releasing 11 sails. He
won the Gold Cup championship
ring with three engraved sailfish.
In third place was the Kalex
with Capt. Alex Adler of
Islamorada, with 19 releases.
Kale.\ anglers were Anthony
DelDuca of Naples, Ken Stiles of
Fort Lauderdale. Brian Baugher
of Fort Myers and Jim Verner of
Ocala.

every day but for the most part, it
has been active.
On the windy days, area
bridge channels have been popu-
lar with the smaller boats, as have
the areas just in front of the
islands. These areas have been
popular with the fish, too. -
With the winter pattern setting
in and the frequent fronts, fish
have been pushing through the
channels with regularity, provid-
ing anglers with a good mixed


bag of prized edible fish as well
as great sport species.
But this type of fishing, as
well as just about any anchored-
boat fishing, is only as good as
the chum line you set up. The
addition of oats and/or menhaden
oil or menhaden milk to your
chum will only enhance the num-
ber of visitors to the line.
