getting cut


They're the latest
victims in county's
budget nightmare
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Local nonprofit agencies hope
the Monroe County Commission
will choose the lesser of two evils
when it decides how to cut vital
funding later this month.
Two proposals up for consid-
eration during the Feb. 20 com-
mission meeting at the Key
Largo library would pare either
$880,000 or $1.4 million off next
year's budget. But the bigger sav-
ings might devastate human-
service agencies that are already


reeling from continuous cut-
backs, some agency officials say.
There are two scenarios on the
table.
In one, the nonprofits would
be asked to reduce their county
allocations to 20 percent lower
than the 2008 fiscal year.
In the other, the nonprofits
would be required to roll back to
2005 county funding levels.
The Human Services
Advisory Board to the commis-
sion divvies up human-services
funding once it's allocated from
the county. That group will meet
the day after the County
Commission to try to triage the

Sewer district on track


The next phase
of construction
planned for May
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.conm

The Key Largo Wastewater
Treatment District is moving for-
ward with planned construction
projects in a dozen neighbor-
hoods, despite an expected slow-
down in state and federal fund-
ing.
In less than a week, the dis-
trict will start the bidding process
for construction in six neighbor-
hoods next in line to receive
sewage collection systems, dis-
trict General Manager Chuck
Fishburn said.
The area, which the district
terms Service Basin B. includes
the neighborhoods of Stillwright
Point, Taylor Creek Village.
Paradise Point Cove. Riviera
Village, Largo Sound Village and
Anglers' Park.
Construction crews could
start work as early as May.


The bidding process for the
subsequent group of neighbor-
hoods, termed Service Basin C,
should open in about a month,
Fishburn said. That area includes
the neighborhoods of Bermuda
Shores. Cross Key Waterway.
Largo Sound Park, Anglers' Park
Shores. South Creek Village and
Twin Lakes subdivisions.
Fishburn said construction
won't start all at once, and that
both areas are broken into four or
five construction phases, which
will cost about $2 million each.
Dividing the work into sub-
phases allows smaller contrac-
tors to be competitive in the bid-
ding process, he said, and lessens
the chance that a larger contrac-
tor will get the job and subcon-
tract different companies to do
the work.
Bids for the construction of a
$5 million. 3,300-foot deep well
needed to dispose of effluent are
also in. he said.
"Staff"s not ready to award it
yet," he said of the well's con--
struction contract. "We've got


the low bidder, but we want to
make sure they're fully quali-
fied."
Fishburn said he's not dis-
couraged by the fact that county-
wide. Keys sewer projects are
likely to receive a total of about
$7 million in state and federal
funding in 2008.
"We're going to be OK,"
Fishburn said. "We have a finan-
cial plan that we expect to stick
to."
He said he credits the dis-
trict's rate structure and a cost-
effective centralized treatment
plant for keeping projects on
schedule.
"This is a $150 million proj-
ect," he said. "We've already
received over $30 million [in
grants], and we're borrowing
$75 million from state revolving
funds. Our rates are what's going
to support the rest of the project."
Fishburn said the district is on
track with its master plan.
"We expect to meet 2010
[wastewater compliance stan-
dards] not 100 percent, but we'll
be close. A few neighborhoods
will still be under construction."


District might bypass permitting


KEY LARGO / From 1

told a gathering of the board of
the Key Largo Chamber of
Commerce on Wednesday that
the permit process can drag a
project out months longer than it
should take.
"The county has no time con-
straints on how long to review a
permit [application]," Fishbur
said.
He said the wastewater dis-
trict should never have been sub-
ject to the permitting process to
begin with. Agencies like the
School District, the Florida Keys
Electric Cooperative and the
Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority, from which the dis-
trict inherited wastewater
responsibilities, don't have to go
through the process for most of
their projects.
Fishburn said he thinks there
was an error in the drafting of
the original bill that left the dis-
trict subject to the permitting
process.
Saunders said he wants to
make sure there is no conflict
between the county and the dis-


trict before he drafts the pro-
posed bill. He said wastewater
district attorney Thomas Dillon
and county attorneys have
recently settled on the language.
Key Largo's sewer district is
one of the most far-along entities
in the Keys in meeting a state-
imposed 2010 centralized sewer
mandate, but Fishburn said
there's still a lot to do and a lot
of money to be raised - to the
tune of $40 million.


Fishburn said it would ulti-
mately cost $150 million to
build a centralized Key Largo
sewer system. Of that. $75 mil-
lion can be paid for by the state's
revolving fund, $30 million has
been received from grants and
Fishburn expects to pay for the
rest of the project with money
borrowed from revenue expect-
ed to be earned from future
assessments.

By DAN GALLAGHER

The Florida East Coast Railway construction
division built a number of quarterboats to house
the workers who were building the Key West
Extension between 1906 and 1912. They were
fabricated in Miami and sent down to the Keys.


Each boat held 64 workers. As it turned out, these
were not good housing in hurricanes, and while
houseboats were used in some areas, the F.E.C.
chose to build dorms on land in major caps such
as the one at Pigeon Key. This boat, located in
Marathon, was featured in a postcard series.

30-day hookup


called unrealistic


Marathon sewer
rules starting
to take shape
By RYAN McCARTHY
nnccarthy@keynoter.corn

Marathon residents' require-
ment to connect to the city's pro-
posed sewer system within 30
days of notice of availability of
services was the main sticking
point at a special sewer meeting
Thursday.
The session was held so city
staff could present to the City
Council a general rules and regu-
lations draft, which Finance
Manager Cindy Lawson said
"will govern your utility from this
point forward." She pointed out
changes can be made to the docu-
ment at the will of the council.
"The purpose of adopting it is
it specifies terms and conditions
of what you're providing to the
public and gives the framework
to adopt charges for operations
and maintenancee" Lawson said.
"Council comments from
tonight's meeting will be incor-
porated into the ordinance at a
subsequent council meeting."
The document was approved
to become an ordinance, but coun-
cil requested several changes.
Councilmen Mike Cinque and
Don Vasil said they feel requiring
residents to hook up to the system
within 30 days of notification is
not a long enough period of time.
Lawson said as is. residents will
be charged from the day they are
required to connect to the system


whether they have or not.
"To realistically expect every-
one to be hooked up [in 30
days].... It's not going to hap-
pen," Vasil said.
"hi a small town with a small
work force, it's unrealistic,"
Cinque said.
The draft does state that "no
less than one year prior to the
date the city's wastewater system
is expected to become available,
the city has agreed to notify the
affected owners."
"Once the system goes online,
you're going to be paying for it."
Lawson said.
Weiler Project Manager Ed
Castle said operations and main-
tenance charges would comprise
a base charge and flow compo-
nent. He said one alternative
would be to apply only the base
charge until a customer is hooked
into the system.
Marathon resident Reese
Williams said during citizen's
comments the 30-day require-
ment is too rigid:
"We'll need a considerable
amount of time to have contrac-
tors do the connection." he said.
Mayor Pete Worthington
urged residents to complete as
much work as possible prior to
the 30-day notification.
"There will be a year's notice.
Have a contractor come out and do
all the work except the final
hookup," he said. "You could have
95 percent of the work done."
Staff will bring recommenda-
tions to council at the ordinance's
first hearing.

More cuts coming


NONPROFITS / From 1

commission's decision.
A 20 percent rollback would
mean the board would get $1.8
million to divide among 32 agen-
cies. If they go back to 2005-
level funding, those same non-
profits would share $1.4 million.
"There are seven new organi-

zations since 2005," said Diana
Flenard, executive director of the
Monroe Association for Retarded
Citizens. "This would mean the
money is being spread even thin-
ner than it was in 2005."
Cuts in local funding have a
ripple effect for most nonprofits
since they need local dollars to
match other grants.
"It's a real snowball effect,"
Flenard said. "We often get 4:1
matches, so these cuts have much
larger repercussions on our over-
all funding."


MARC's share of the county's
funding has already dwindled.
In 2007 the agency received
$205,000. It requested the same
amount for 2008, but after multi-
ple cuts during the long budget-
ing process, the agency is slated
to receive $175,000 this year.
The Monroe County
Domestic Abuse Shelter gets
only a fraction of what MARC
gets in county funding, but every
one of those dollars counts.
Executive Director Venita
Garvin-Valdez said.
"We may need to shut down
offices," she said. The organiza-
tion runs two shelters and four
outreach offices. "We need each
and every one of those offices."
The shelter will receive only
about $40,000 in county funding
this year, down from $50,000 in
2007. It asked for $100,000. As
with other agencies, each local
dollar is vital for drawing in state
and federal funding.
"When we don't get the kind
of support we need from county
and city government." Garvin-
Valdez said, "we're almost to a
point where we have to say we
can't even ask for grants."
The wild card in all of this is
the fact that tough financial times
mean more people are in need of
these services.
"As the economy gets tighter,
there are more people coming to
your door for services," Flenard
said.
Garvin-Valdez agrees. "If you
think about a couple experienc-
ing economic challenges, and
there's violence in the relation-
ship, its not a good recipe for
assuring that violence doesn't
happen," she said.

Opinion


Keys get a bum rap

compared to mainland

Do as I say, not as I do?
That doesn't strike most folks as a reasonable approach to
governing, especially when the ones giving the advice also
have the power to punish those who don't comply.
Essentially, that's the message Key West businessman Ed
Swift has been raising in letters sent to the media complaining
about the state's double speak on wastewater.
His ire was first stoked in December. after reading a Miami
Herald news account about treated sewage being dumped in
the ocean.
Each day, 300 million gallons of effluent is piped three miles
offshore and dumped by sewer authorities in Miami-Dade,
Broward and Palm Beach counties.
Swift says at first he couldn't believe the state or federal gov-
ernment still allowed ocean dumping. Confirming the informa-
tion was accurate, he then got mad.
"The state and feds have virtually turned their backs on fund-
ing their fair and promised share of the cost [to sewer the Keys]
... [then] turn a blind eye to the much, much greater threat to
our ecological well being" of ocean dumping.
It may be even worse than he imagined.
State Department of Environmental Protection officials note
that wastewater being dumped by those three counties repre-
sents 26 percent of the region's entire water supply.
Reuse could be the single biggest factor in avoiding future
water wars and continued ocean pollution.
But the deputy director of Miami-Dade's Water and Sewer
Department said reuse could increase water rates $7 to $40 a
month.
Imagine that.
Residents of the Keys already pay water rates three times
higher than their northern neighbors and, thanks to state man-
dates, face sewer bills of $70-plus a month on top of already-
higher water bills.
Questions about equal enforcement by the state beg to be
answered.
Should Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach be told no
more building permits until they stop dumping 300 million gal-
lons of partially treated sewage in the ocean?
How about no new permits until they tackle water reuse - a
critical regional resource need?
And how can the state impose tougher mandates on the Keys
while simultaneously ignoring far bigger water pollution prob-
lems in South Florida's big urban counties?
Playing tough in the Keys is for show.
But the real problems won't go away when 44 percent of
treated sewage effluent in Florida is dumped into surface
waters and ocean outfalls.
Do as I say simply doesn't cut it anymore.

Graduation option doesn't mean less student achievement


EDITOR:
The Monroe County School District has been
graded "A" by the Florida Department of
Education for two consecutive years. Both our
graduation rate and dropout rate figure into the
grading formula. Both rates are calculated using
hard data in exactly the same manner as are all
67 school districts in the state. Our district's grad-
uation rate is 83.6 percent, ninth highest in the
state.
Disparaging misinformation concerning the
GED exit graduation option was recently report-
ed in this publication. Out of respect for the stu-
dents and teachers involved. I am compelled to
provide factual and actual information regarding
the rigor and efficacy of our GED exit option
program.
Yes, the Department of'Education graduation
rate accurately reflects student achievement.
Including GED exit option statistics in this calcu-
lation does not compromise the integrity of our
graduation requirements nor does it falsely ele-
vate the rate.
Here are GED exit option facts:
+ Students must pass both the FCAT and the
GED in addition to passing all classes over the
course of their senior school year to earn a diplo-
ma through this graduation option.
* The American Council on Education owns
the rights to all GED tests nationwide and the
Department of Education applies to this entity for
the right to operate the GED exit option in
Florida schools.


+ Monroe and 58 other Florida districts apply
to the state for the right to operate the program.
Each school district must meet 10 required assur-
ances to have that application approved.
* Last year, 2,973 students in Florida earned
their diploma through the GED exit option and
all were calculated into the graduation rate for
their county.
* Superintendents in both Miami-Dade and
Palm Beach counties are requiring every accredit-
ed comprehensive high school in their districts to
offer the GED exit option.
+ Nationally, 11 states use this option for
graduation.
There are countless factors impacting the lives
of young people and thereby impacting their suc-
cess in school. We value students as individuals.
The system would be failing students if we didn't
recognize diverse and demanding individual
needs and then develop strategies to meet those
needs. Monroe's GED exit option is carefully
planned and meets all required assurances.
We believe in student success, whatever it
takes.
Obviously, this route to high school gradua-
tion is not an easy out. Talk with the individuals
involved, the students who earn their high school
diplomas through the GED exit option and the
teachers who believe in them.

Anti-city sentiments not based in truth


EDITOR:
Unincorporation proponent Sally Buehler
and her minions of disgruntled Marathon resi-
dents should move and move now. There are
many areas the county controls, so move on and
move out.
Proponents are miserable unhappy people
who thrive on spreading lies, discontent and
negativity. They haven't a leg to stand on, and
most of the citizens of Marathon are happy to
be living in our own city. Our new fire station is
a sign of stability, and 1 hope to see a new city

No one person leads KCB
EDITOR:
On behalf of several city commissioners
present and past and the city clerk and her staff.
1 take exception to a comment by a candidate
for the Key Colony Beach City Commission.
That comment inferred that one person was
responsible for the fiscal well-being of the city
as it stands today. In the city charter, it is clear
that the City Commission runs the city. No one
individual on this commission has any more say
than the other. The commission may elect a
mayor/city administrator or appoint a city

There has been a great team effort to keep
Key Colony Beach fiscally sound and 1 applaud

Majority bloc has a collective tin ear


EDITOR:
Monroe County commissioners
Dixie Spehar, Mario Di Gennaro and
Sonny McCoy have achieved new
heights in their tireless efforts to
streamline otherwise time-consum-
ing and cumbersome land develop-
ment decisions.
This week, attorney Jerry
Coleman, representing his client
Robbie's Marina and acting in concert
with Di Gennaro, who read his pre-
pared endorsement of Mr. Coleman's
amendment, accomplished in one
standard three-minute public speaking
slot what could have dragged out for
months while the public, the county
Planning Commission, the Growth
Management staff, the county attor-
neys and the U.S. Navy would other-
wise have actually read and consid-
ered the legality and implications of
the proposals for an ordinance to pre-
serve the working waterfront.
The issue of the Navy alone could
have prolonged the process if they
had been allowed to consider and
comment on the safety and health
impacts of having more people and
taller buildings in the path of their
aircraft. As testament to SpeDiCoy's
streamlining prowess (noting here
that it's effectively only one com-
missioner, as my small contribution
to their streamlining efforts), the
Robbie's Marina amendments were
summarily adopted, with commis-
sioners Sylvia Murphy and George


Neugent dissenting.
The only glitch in this slick
process was an awkward discussion
about how many times the word
"shall" occurred in Coleman's amend-
ments and which of the shalls shall be
stricken from the final version.
Another potentially lumpy issue
was bypassed when the County
Commission ignored Planning
Commissioner Sherry Popham's plea
that the County Commission adopt
the amendment as approved by the
Growth Management staff, legal
staff and the Planning Commission
rather than the version Coleman had
just presented to the public and the
county three minutes earlier.
Murphy and Neugent attempted
to delay the process by asking ques-
tions. Neugent's pointed questions
about the late additions remained
unanswered.
So notwithstanding that a funda-
mental duty of the County
Commission is to present ordinances
to the public for hearings and then
vote whether to adopt them for
inclusion in the county code, for the
next eight months we can expect
Commissioner SpeDiCoy will do
everything possible to bring us the
most streamlined land development
decisions money can buy by getting
to the voting part as rapidly as we
allow them to.

Community partners for King celebration


EDITOR:
The Martin Luther King Jr.
Birthday and Scholarship Committee
would like to express our heartfelt
appreciation to this marvelous com-
munity for its attendance at and par-
ticipation in the celebration in honor
of the late, great Rev. Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. Jan. 21 at Cornish
Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church in
Key West.
The ecumenical clergy of many
denominations, the Blessed
Community Gospel Choir, the Men in
Black Male Chorus, Phyllis Allen,
Yul Knighton, Awena Weed, all of the
musicians, Rose Lopez, all those Key
West city and Monroe County offi-
cials, thanks to all for them taking
time out of their busy schedules to
participate.
Thank you to the pastor and mem-
bers of Cornish, the birthplace of this
annual celebration in Key West. The
traditional highlight of the evening,
and the very best culmination of the
day, requires a generous thank you to,
Roosevelt Sands. His oration of the
words of Dr. King ring as loudly
today as they did when they were


first spoken by Dr. King himself. Of
course, we had the best possible mas-
ter and mistress of ceremonies in the
personage of Glenwood and Michele
Lopez.
Thank you all and may God bless
each and every one of you.

Texas is different
EDITOR:
I felt the need to write in response
to Tina Stiglitz's letter regarding flag
etiquette. She is almost exactly cor-
rect regarding the priority the
American flag has. As a native
Texan, however, I must point out the
one exception to the rule.
The state of Texas was a Republic
and is the only state to come into the
union through a treaty, not annexa-
tion. Texas to this day retains the
right to have its own navy, to split
itself into five states if it wishes and,
yes, the right to fly its flag at the
same level as the U.S. flag.

Commission too quick with vote


EDITOR:
I'm not sure what I find more dis-
gusting and appalling about our County
Commission, the fact that they voted to
allow broad zoning changes at the
behest of lawyers for big developers or
that they didn't even read it first.
It's utterly amazing to me that they
would vote on something [the working-
waterfront law] that would have such an
impact on our community without even
reading it. If you don't want the job,
step down. If you cannot be bothered to
do it properly, then get the heck out of


there and let someone who will.
If they had read it and agreed, that's
one thing, but to blindly agree to
changes that any major developer asks
for is stupid. If the commissioners don't
think the developers are watching out
for their best interests, then the com-
missioners are more gullible than I
thought.
Commissioners, you've been elected
to serve the county community. Do your
job.

Waterfront vote smacks of favoritism


EDITOR:
Monday, the Monroe County
Commission showed its true colors. It
voted on changes to the working-water-
front legislation without even taking the
time to read or discuss changes pro-
posed by attorney Jerry Coleman.
Mr. Coleman, attorney for the devel-
opers of Robbie's Marina on Stock
Island, handed out a stack of papers at
the last possible minute to the commis-
sioners. Seconds later, faster than you
can say "my vote is for sale,"
Commissioner Mario Di Gennaro made
a motion to accept the changes and was


immediately seconded by
Commissioner Dixie Spehar. There was
no public input on the changes, just one
more instance of our commissioners
thumbing their nose at the public.
Commissioners George Neugent and
Sylvia Murphy voted against the legis-
lation. The three other commissioners,
Spehar, Di Gennaro and Sonny McCoy,
blatantly disregarded the public and
their own office by prostituting their
vote for the developers of Robbie's
Marina.

'Gang of three' favors developers again


EDITOR:
Re: Monday's County Commission
vote on the working-waterfront ordi-
nance: 1 guess the cat's out of the bag
when it comes to the relationship with
three of our county commissioners and
development.
Commissioner Mario Di Gennaro said
people should be able to do whatever
they want with their property. 1 guess
there is at least no gray area in his disre-
gard for the county citizens and love for
the developers' interests.
1 have forwarded an e-mail to the state
Department of Community Affairs asking
them to review the tape of the meeting
because that speaks for itself.


The gang of three knows that DCA
will deny this amendment after they stop
laughing or crying over the lack of
impartiality, but at least the gang of three
did as they were told.
These same pro-military folks on the
board even denied the U.S. Navy the
right to speak. Should we now question
their patriotism as they did others in
regard to the Air Installation
Compatibility Use Zone?
One positive did come out of this
meeting, and that is if two of the gang of
three get re-elected, then we deserve
what we get.

Popham quitting shows county's in trouble


EDITOR:
The resignation from the Monroe
County Planning Commission of Sherry
Popham makes it clear that there is a
serious delinquency in the County
Commission.
Ms. Popham objected to the County
Commission sidestepping the Planning
Commission, and ignoring advice of the
county Growth Management director, to
assist a developer in displacing working
waterfront on Stock Island, which vio-
lates stated county and state policy. This
was done in support of a developer and
with the connivance of the same attorney


Jerry Coleman who was paid hundreds
of thousands by the county for legal
services.
County Commissioner George
Neugent reported that none of the com-
missioners knew what they were voting
on. Clearly it's time to vote out of office
the two members of the gang of three
who were behind this misadventure and
who are up for reelection this November.
However, it's a long way to November
and strong public pressure is needed in
the interim to keep the gang in check.

Meteorite nowhere to be found


Rarity reported
stolen from
the Star Party
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The purloined meteorite
remains missing.
"There's been no news,"
Lisa Summerfield said Friday.
"It's still missing."
About the size of the palm
of your hand, her husband's
meteorite was stolen Tuesday
or early Wednesday from an
unlocked display case at the
Winter Star Party, a weeklong


gathering for about 600 profes-
sional and amateur astro-
nomers on West Summerland
Key.
Owner Bob Summerfield of
Melrose, Pa., told Monroe
County Sheriff's Office
deputies the meteorite is worth
$10,000.
Summerfield founded the
nonprofit Astronomy To Go
group that works to interest
students in the study of space
and astronomy. His wife, Lisa,
helps conduct organization
programs.
The meteorite, cut flat on
one 4-inch side but uncut on
the others, was found in Chile.


Neugent seeks

Popham replacement


It weighs 99 grams, or slightly
under 4 ounces.
"The meteorite is described
as greenish brown in color with
olivine crystals in it," Sheriff's
Office spokeswoman Becky
Herrin said. "According to the
owner. Olivine crystals are a
natural mineral found in the
inner core of an asteroid."
The Winter Star Party, host-
ed by Miami's Southern Cross
Astronomical Society, attracts
astronomers who scan the win-
ter night sky off the Lower
Keys. The 11-acre Boy Scout
campground where it's held
provides a rare location where
relatively few manmade lights
reduce visibility of the night
sky. -
People attending the Winter
Star Party, now in its 24th year,
must apply for tickets months
in advance. The 2008 event,
running Feb. 4 through Sunday,
was sold out, according to the


society's Web site.
Summerfield told the Miami
Herald the meteorite is not
insured because it is not con-
stantly secured.
"1 wanted to share it with
children," he told the Herald.
"I'm a museum that comes to
you. And hundreds, of thou-
sands of children, if not a mil-
lion, have handled this mete-
orite."
The meteorite was in a dis-
play case covered with a tarp.
Meteorites - whole or sec-
tioned - are popular with col-
lectors. This week, eBay had
nearly 900 auctions listed for
meteorites. A dozen were
priced at more than $1,000 to
$10,000. One rock, described
by a new seller as a 22-pound
meteorite, was listed for $1
million.
Dozens of online sellers
specialize in various types of
meteorites.

Commissioner
wants 'moderate'
person on panel
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Monroe County Commis-
sioner George Neugent says he
hopes to have a solid nominee
to replace Sherry Popham on
the county Planning
Commission.
Popham resigned suddenly
Tuesday in protest of the
County Commission's move
Monday to adopt several private
interests' additions to a pro-
posed waterfront-preservation
ordinance.
"I'm trying to create a selec-
tion pool to choose from,"
Neugent said. "The opening
came up unexpectedly."
"I'm hoping to present some-
one who is reasonable and mod-
erate," he said. "I felt like
Sherry was all of that, and she
certainly did her homework.
She articulated her thoughts as
well or better than anyone I
know."
Popham didn't mince words
in her resignation announce-
ment, which came on the heels
of a lengthy Planning
Commission meeting.
. "The Planning Commission
and the County Commission


have an obligation to use our
power for the public welfare.
not the benefit of private
landowners," she . said.
"Government operating with
this lack of transparency begs
the question of susceptibility to
corruption and undue influ-
ence."
Popham was the Planning
Commission's lead on crafting
an ordinance she hoped would
protect commercial fishing in
the Keys along with the marine
businesses that support it. The
ordinance, too, seeks to pre-
serve public access to the water-
front.
Monday, the County Com-
mission was looking to revise
the ordinance, but in the process
voted 3-2 to accept a list of last-
minute changes from two attor-
neys representing Stock Island
waterfront property owners.
Neugent first appointed
Popham to the Planning
Commission in February 2006
to replace the retiring Lynn
Mapes. That term expired in
September, and then Mayor
Mario Di Gennaro stepped in
and named Key West attorney
John. Marston to replace her.
Neugent then named Popham to
fill another seat vacated by
Michelle Cates-Deal.
Popham's term would have
expired in November 2009.

Park residents getting evicted


But city says
park owner can't
do what it plans
By RYAN McCARTHY
nccarthyC'i'keynoitcr.coin

Several mobile-home owners
at the Whispering Pines Trailer
Park on Grassy Key have been
given until July 31 to vacate
their residences.
Park manager Bill Sampsel
said the owner, an investment
group out of Connecticut,
intends to make turn Whispering
Pines into "one of the nicer RV
parks in the Keys."
Sampsel said work was
recently completely on new
dockage and a recreation center
and swimming pool are in the
works. He said the park would
downsize from 50 sites to 36 to
better accommodate large RVs.
"I think it's a good move per-
sonally. You never like to see
people have to move but that's
the way the world works."
Sampsel said. "[The owners] are
trying to work with them and do
what they can for them."
Sampsel said many of the
trailers are unfit to live in and
several are already abandoned.
He said several other owners
had already signed their titles
over to the park and vacated.
But Marathon Planning
Director Clarence Feagin said
the park's current land-use des-
ignation does not allow for RVs
on the property. Whispering
Pines is zoned residential
mobile home.

Traffic enforcement
steps up in Islamorada

Monroe County Sheriff's
Office deputies in Islamorada are
stepping up enforcement of traf-
fic laws in response to heavier
traffic on the highway due to the
influx of tourists and in response
to citizen complaints.
Deputies will pay special
attention to speeding on the Old
Highway, running stop signs near
Coral Shores High School and in
the area of Venetian Shores, and
passing in the no-passing center
lane.

This is the mobile home of retired veteran Tim Bower at the
Whispering Pines Trailer Park on Grassy Key. He and several
other owners have been served notice to vacate the property
by July 31. Park manager Bill Sampsel said its owners want to


make it strictly an RV park.
"When you look up in the
city land-use regulations what
permissible uses are, RV use is
prohibited. The owners of
Whispering Pines want to
replace mobile homes with
recreational vehicles, [but]
under the city's land-use plan
that is not permissible," Feagin
said.
Non-conforming permanent
RVs, such as those at Keys RV
in Marathon, would be allowed
to stay, Feagin said.
"They can remain like that
but whatever comes back has to
conform to current land-use reg-
ulations," he said.
Meanwhile, permanent resi-
dents like Lonnie Rosenberg are
set to lose their homes in six
months. Many of the homes are
immovable due to age and dam-
ages sustained during Hurricane
Wilma.
Rosenberg purchased his
mobile home only four months
ago for $10,000 and said he
made the check out directly to
Bill's wife, Mary Sampsel. He
said he now questions the legiti-
macy of the sale.
"I'm going to look into a
lawyer and see what they can
find and that's all I can do
besides talking to everyone
around here and finding out
their side of the story,"
Rosenberg said.
Rosenberg lives in the
mobile home with his best
friend and said the two are


"pretty pissed off that we took
all our money to move down
here and now all of this hap-
pens."
Tim Bower is a retired opera-
tions manager for a trucking
outfit in Ohio. He sold his home
in Canton and used the proceeds
to move to the Keys and said
news of the eviction came as a
shock.
"There's been rumors since
we moved here because they're
doing so many other ones
around here. This was going to
be my last place." Bower said.
"I fixed this place up the way I
wanted it and Wilma hit and I
did it a second time. I'm out
about $50,000 and quite frankly,
that was my little nest egg."
In 2006, some 65 families
were forced out of the Jolly
Roger Travel Park on Grassy
Key after the owner, David
Jackson, decided to seek a land-
use change. City Manager Mike
Puto said to this day Jackson has
applied for no permits to utilize
the property.
The owners of the mobile
homes at Whispering Pines
lease from the landowner, mean-
ing they can be evicted. Bower
said he pays $516 per month,
plus utilities.
Puto said the park owner can-
not be stopped from sending out
eviction notices, but will be
required to apply for a zoning
change through the proper chan-
nels.

Divers Direct comes up for air


Company stops
work in Marathon
citing the cost
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccartihy@keynoter.com

Local dive shops and opera-
tors worried about competition
from a chain can breathe a sigh of
relief for the time being, as con-
struction has been halted on the
Divers Direct store near mile
marker 50 in Marathon.
Divers Direct Chief Executive
Officer Kevin Senecal said cost
overruns and subsequent delays
in permitting led him to back out
of a lease-to-own agreement with
former Gary's Pub & Billiards
owner Gary Wood.
Senecal said he exercised an
option to terminate the lease by
Jan. 31 if he was unable to secure
a permit for the property, which
he has not. He also had the option
to purchase the property at any
time under the arrangement.
"City Council approved the
design we had, but we wouldn't
have been able to open by sum-
mer season. The main season for


us is diving season - June, July
and August," Senecal said. "So
quite frankly, the economics did-
n't make sense for us."
Senecal said he has a real
estate agent working to find
another space for Divers Direct in
Marathon, though it is unlikely
the shop would be able to open
by summer.
The Marathon store would be
Divers Direct's seventh in Florida.
A significant amount of work
has already taken place on the
Gary's building, which has essen-
tially been gutted and the roof
removed. Senecal said work
ceased last Friday and that it
should be clear of all equipment
by the end of this week.
"We certainly came across a lot
of unexpected work on the proj-
ect. Literally, our cost overruns
were angling toward $400,000 or
$500,000. Sometimes walking
away becomes more effective." he
said, noting he already had
$100,000 invested in the project.
Morgan Hill of Exit Realty is
handling the property for Wood.
"Traditionally, when someone
leases a building, they return it in


the same condition or better and I
don't think that's what we have
here," Hill said. "It's an attempt
to cancel his lease and we'll let
the attorneys sort it out."
Senecal says the work would
have had to be done anyway.
"The reality from [Wood's]
perspective is everything 1 did
was things that had to be done. I
know it looks bad right now, but
everything we took out of there
was a hazard," he said.
Senecal said he would work
with Wood to keep the fence sur-
rounding the property in place
until a decision is made on its
future.
It was just two months ago
that council, with much resist-
ance from local dive-shop own-
ers. granted Holiday Diver Inc.,
parent company of Divers Direct,
a conditional use permit for the
long-defunct property.
Representatives from most
every local shop pleaded with
council not to grant the condi-
tional use, but it passed unani-
mously. City Attorney Jimmy
Morales had advised council that
"economic competition is not an
appropriate argument against
land use."

The former Gary's Pub & Billiards is now gutted, with the roof
pretty much gone. It looks like it'll stay that way for awhile now
that Divers Direct has decided to walk away from its plans to
move in there.

Dog virus seems


isolated to Miami-Dade


Keys shelters
not experiencing
deadly strain
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

A killer canine virus in
Miami seems to be localized
to one mainland animal shel-
ter, but staffers at Keys shel-
ters are keeping a close eye.
At least 12 dogs have died


from an unidentified flu-like
virus at a Miami-Dade animal
shelter the past week, and offi-
cials there have stopped all
adoptions until they can find
the cause.
Tammy Fox, director of the
Key West Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to

with staff at the Miami-Dade
shelter and says her staff is

But she says she's confi-

isolated incident.
"So far, there's no indica-

ter," she said. "They are work-

on with this respiratory virus

"A couple people have

us," said Linda Gotlwald,
executive director Stand Up

A healthy selection of dogs is ready for adoption at the Key
West animal shelter. Officials there say a deadly virus in a
Miami animal shelter has not affected the Keys.
saddest aspects of the virus is
that it's virtually shut down
adoption from a shelter that
sees a lot of animals come
through its doors.
Kelly Ann Rada. assistant
Director of the Miami-Dade
Animal Shelter, said in a
memo to shelter staff and vol-
,, unteers that there's no indica-
S"" tion the virus can spread to
743-3314 cats or humans.
In the meantime, that shel-
'Tl through Mater has canceled adoption
events and closed its adoption
Kennels until further notice.
- "We are continuing to work
with the veterinary colleges at
University of California-Davis
and the University of Florida
to determine the cause of this
fatal disease." Rada wrote.

Manor talk goes to City Council


Bull indicates
location prime
for city hall
By RYAN McCARTHY
nnccanrt hly@keynoter.coml

The Marathon City Council is
scheduled to meet in regular ses-
sion Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the
Marathon Government Center.
Agenda items include:
* A discussion on possible
land-use alternatives for the
defunct Marathon Manor prop-
erty owned by the Monroe
County School Board.
Vice Mayor Chris Bull has
suggested the site, on Sombrero
Beach Road next to Marathon
High School, would be ideal for
a proposed city hall/library on
hold for some time now. The
manor is a 40.000-plus-square-
foot property, while city-hall
proposals called for only 30,000
square feet, he said.
City Hall is currently sited in
trailers at 98th Street.
* A resolution supporting the
continuing " efforts of Fair
Insurance Rates in Monroe to
reduce the proposed Monroe
County windstorm insurance
rates.
The resolution recognizes
FIRM for having been success-
ful in having rates frozen at 2005
levels and pledges support to the
group in their effort to keep
those rates in place. The state
Legislature will consider insur-
ance issues in its upcoming ses-
sion.
* A resolution to authorize a
change order to the city's sewer
engineering contract to provide
global positioning system and
geographic information system
data collection, input and analy-
sis for the city's sewer and
stormwater project. The change
order is not to exceed $881,935.
Th& resolution states GIS
enhances efficient operation of
utilities and can be done cost
effectively since the city is
"building this infrastructure
from scratch."
The resolution also states
response times for service calls
will be shortened and costly
damages to the system can be
avoided, eventually leading to
reduced operation and mainte-
nance charges to the residents.
However, the resolution also
says approval would likely result


in "some increased to he overall
project costs."
* A resolution declaring the
city's intent to purchase the
Little Venice wastewater collec-
tion. transmission, treatment and
disposal systems from the
Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority.
The resolution states upon
transfer of ownership, the city
will "expand the plant to include
the balance of service area 5
(60th Street to Vaca Cut)." The


purchase price will be the debt
owed by the FKAA on the sys-
tem at the time of transfer.
* A resolution to adopt the
City of Marathon Marina
Americans with Disabilities Act
transition plan.
Deputy City Manager C.J.
Geotis said he will introduce the
plan to council and identify
marina employee Austin
DiRenzo as its ADA compliance
coordinator.
"He'll be overseeing all the
work projects involved in the
transition plan and be the one

Scholl passes six-month evaluation


It's not glowing
but it's also not
very critical
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Key West City Manager Jim
Scholl received his evaluation
Tuesday from city commission-
ers who, for the most part, gave
him an above-average rating.
With the lowest score being 1
and the highest a 3, Scholl scored
an average of 2.14, a rung just
above the "meets expectation"
standard, from the seven commis-
sioners.
"It was fair," Scholl said. "The
scores were fine."
Commissioner Dan Kolhage
gave Scholl the most critical eval-
uation, marking the lowest score
possible on topics including man-


aging finances, commission rela-
tions and leadership skills. which
he described as the "most disap-
pointing area of performancee"
"Failure to recognize areas of
inefficiencies in 'order to reduce
expense in increasingly difficult
budget year," Kolhage wrote on
the evaluation. "Often responds
with '1 know' without reilly lis-
tening to concerns...."
Mayor Morgan McPherson
criticized Scholl for the same rea-
son, stating he needs to work on
effective listening and delegating.
He needs to "not let 'things'
go in one ear and out the other...,"
McPherson wrote. However, lhe
also said "he's as honest as the
day is long."
Commissioner Teri Johnston
wrote that Scholl hasn't devel-
oped an "equitable personnel sys-
tem" but gave him soaring marks

in community relations, profes-
sionalismn and open-mindedness,
while Commissioner Barry
Gibson gave him similar reviews
for commission and community
relations.
Scholl "is approachable to city
employees and most importantly
has conveyed a sense of equality
in his decision-making ability,"
Johnston wrote. "He is not seen
as playing favorites or having a
personal agenda."


Commissioner Clayton Lopez
also gave a glowing review, but
says lie wants Scholl to improve
in "affirmative action compli-
ance" - finding better jobs for
workers with diverse ethnicities.
Because Scholl's only been on
the job six months,
Commissioner Bill Verge left
some answers on the evaluation
blank, stating it's "too early to
evaluate after only six months."
Verge gave favorable and average


marks with the exception of
media relations and "making reli-
able decisions as required."
Scholl reminded the commis-
sion that his evaluation is an
ongoing process.
His three-year contract pro-
vides an annual salary of
$180,000, with no raises until that
contract expires. He replaced 11-
year Manager Julio Avael, who
retired.


Manager applications roll in


Deputy slot
vacant when
Jones leaves
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@k kcynoter.com

The position of Key West
assistant city manager, to be
vacated after the conclusion of
John Jones' Il-vear tenure May
1. has attracted more than a
dozen resumes of candidates
with extensive experience in city
government.
So far. Ron Herron is the only
Key Wester on the list of appli-
cants. In the past. he's been
executive director of AIDS Help
Inc., Pretrial Services director
for Monroe County, a manage-
ment consultant for Crescent
City - and Key West assistant
city manager from 1989 to 1994,
before Jones.
"He did real good." Jones
said of Herron. "He's very much
qualified."


-erron ran for state represen-
tative in 2000. served on the hos-
pital taxing board for the Lower
Keys and chaired the PACE
Center for Girls, an alternative
education program for at-risk
girls.
Herron received his bache-
lor's degree in sociology from
Eastern Michigan University in
1974. He couldn't be reached by
press time.
Fred Hays of McKinney.
Texas, consults for cities and
counties now, but prior to that he
was city manager for six differ-
ent municipalities, three in
Florida.
Hays. 54, has been the man-
ager of Alachua. Fernandina
Beach and Port Orange. IHe
moved to Texas seven years ago.
he said.
According to Hays. 20 years
in city management should win
him the job. He compares certain
aspects of his job in Fernandina
Beach to what it might be like in


Key West.
"Tourism was very impor-
tant," he said. "1 got a lot of
experience in Florida" with
environmental laws and growth
management.
"And I like the location." he
said.
William Cooper was city
manager of Mount Clemens,
Mich., from 2005 to 2007.
Mount Clemens, he said, is a
city greatly concerned with pre-
serving its historic buildings.
Cooper said his experience with
preservation and redevelopment
makes him an ideal fit for the
position in Key West.
Although he's never visited
the island, Cooper says he's
drawn to the allure of Key West
and his experience in the "enter-
tainment capital" of Macomb
County.
Other applicants include

Rego tapped for vacant TDC slot


He would take
Islamorada seat
held by Rhyne
Keynoter Staff

Monroe County Commis-
sioner Mario Di Gennaro says
he will nominate Frank Rego


for the District 4 seat on the
Tourist Development Council
being vacated by Islamorada
resident Jim Rhyne.
"He did a good job as chair-
man of the Lodging
Association" of the Florida
Keys and Key West. Di
Gennaro told the Keynoter


Friday. "He's been on the
[TDC District Advisory
Council] twice. "I like the idea
that he has experience up and
down the Keys."
Di Gennaro appointed
Rhyne in September to finish
the term of Scott Simmons,
who resigned. The appoint-
ment became controversial
when Islamorada businesses


complained that Rhyne's busi-
ness is in Marathon (he owns a
motel there) and that he might
not fully represent the needs of
Islamorada.
In January the County
Commission adopted a new
TDC policy that addressed the
controversy. The new rules say
a nominee must own a busi-
ness in the district represented.


Rego formerly worked for
financially troubled Cay
Clubs. He is now with Marina
Associates.
Di Gennaro is making the
appointment as a county com-
missioner. But he also chairs
the TDC.
Rego said he was too busy
to comment on the appoint-
ment.

4 suspected alien
smugglers arrested

Crew on the U.S. Coast Guard
cutter Pea Island repatriated 58
Cuban migrants to Bahia de
Cabanas, Cuba, Wednesday.
They were interdicted during two
separate incidents since last
weekend, including one off the
Keys.
The Guard says that last
Sunday, a C-130 Hercules air-
plane from Air Station
Clearwater, while conducting a
patrol, located a disabled go-fast
vessel 90 miles southeast of Cay
Sal Bank, Bahamas. The crew
relayed the position to the crew


aboard the cutter Cobia, which
interdicted the 30 Cuban
migrants and took two suspected
smugglers to Customs and
Border Protection officials in
Key West.
The day before, a crew on a
Falcon jet from Air Station
Miami located a go-fast 64 miles
south of Cudjoe Key. Crews from
Station Key West used disabling
fire to stop the engines after the
operator failed to follow orders
and stop the boat, according to
the Guard. The boat stopped 11
miles southeast of Boca Chica
and was found carrying 28
migrants. Two suspected smug-
glers and their vessel were taken
into custody.

TraumaStar taking in money


$353,000 so far
collected from
flight charges
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

While January proved to be
one of the busiest months for the
county's TraumaStar helicopter
in terms of emergency trans-
ports, it was also a big month for
collecting fees that will offset
the expense of the service.
"I don't know if it will ever
pay for itself totally." Sheriff
Rick Roth said, "but I'd like to
see it break even."
In what Monroe County
Sheriff's Office spokeswoman
Becky Herrin said is the busiest
month yet, the helicopter
responded to 29 calls for service.
From that, Herrin said. 20
patients were transported to hos-
pitals on the mainland. Nine
were flown directly from the
scene of accidents.
Among patients transported
were two severely injured peo-
ple from a plane crash off
Marathon.


While the calls are increas-
ing, money to recoup the
expense of the flights is also
starting to roll in, according to
Sheriff's Office Budget Director
Mike Rice.
So far the department has col-
lected about $353,000. and
about $177.000 of that came in
the past two months.
The Sheriff's Office started
flying the Sikorsky at the end of
November 2006 (it replaced a
1967 Huey that was used since
2002). It's flown 147 missions.
An average flight costs some-
where between $4,000 and
$5,000, depending on where it
originates, the cost of gas and a
number of other factors, Herrin
said. In fact, the average cost
goes down the more flights that
are made.
The County Commission is
looking at shaving expenses
from a variety of services
throughout the Keys.
"We've been given a year to
bring it in line." Roth said. But
regaining that $5,000 per emer-
gency flight won't be easy.
"We don't ever check the

Aggressive solicitors
going door to door

Beware of young people pur-
porting to be students knocking
on your door, the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office says.
Deputy Becky Herrin said the
agency has received several
complaints countywide about
people going door to door sell-
ing magazines. According to
callers, the solicitors are
extremely aggressive in their
sales tactics. They use sympa-
thetic stories, some claiming to
be college students trying to go
to school; some say they're rais-


ing money for charity. In many
instances, they try to get a resi-
dent to let them inside the house,
ostensibly in the hopes that once
inside, they'll have more of an-
opportunity to sell their wares.
Herrin says if someone
knocks on your door and tries to
sell you something, you have the
right to refuse them and ask
them to leave your property. If
they become insistent or refuse
to take no as an answer, tell them
you are going to call the
Sheriff's Office to report them.
Under no circumstances should
a person ever allow a stranger
into their home.


financial viability of who we
pick up either in the helicopter
or an ambulance," Roth said.
"You pick up everybody, then
work it out. There's really no
way to make a profit if you
include trauma on-the-scene
service."
At the end of last year, the
county approved a certificate
that allows a private carrier,
LifeNet, to conduct inter-facility
transports and park a bird in Key
West.
Roth says they might make it
a little harder to turn a profit.
"But there seems to be
enough business for both of us,"
he said. "LifeNet flies out of
Key West. Because we're based
in Marathon. we are more cen-
tral to both ends of the Keys.
We're better positioned to
respond within the county.
Overall, the county has bud-
geted $2.1 million to operate the
helicopter. That includes gas,
training, salaries, everything it
costs to fly and to store the craft.

By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.con

Virtually all Florida Keys
waters could be declared as criti-
cal habitat for threatened
staghorn and elkhorn corals
under a proposal unveiled this
week by the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration.
No specific regulations have
been forwarded, but designating
areas as critical habitat for a
threatened or endangered species
requires government agencies "to
ensure actions do not adversely
modify or destroy critical habi-
tat."
South Florida's designated
critical habitat would run along
the coast from Palm Beach
County through the Dry Tortugas,
covering about 3,301 square
miles.
The only expectation in the
decision released Wednesday
would be 47 square miles of
water around Naval Air Station
Key West.
"Critical habitat is one of the
most important safety nets for
wildlife listed under the


Endangered Species Act," said
Miyoko Sakashita, attorney with
the Center for Biological
Diversity.
The center filed the lawsuit
that triggered the May 2006 des-
ignation of elkhorn and staghorn
as threatened species.
"For corals, critical habitat will
add a layer of defense against
threats to the marine habitat such
as pollution, overfishing,
increased temperatures, and ocean
acidification," Sakashita said.
A series of federal hearings to
take public comments on the des-
ignation includes a 7 p.m. March
5 session at the Marathon
Government Center. 2798
Overseas Highway.
Staghorn and elkhom corals
are among the most spectacular
branching corals on the Florida
Keys reef tract, but large tracts
are dead or sickly.
"It is estimated that more than
90 percent of these corals have
been lost because of disease,
coral bleaching and tropical
storm damage," a NOAA state-
ment says.


"Designating critical habitat
for these species is important
because it informs the public of
areas that are crucial to the con-
servation of the species and iden-
tifies where conservation actions
will be most effective," said Roy
Crabtree, NOAA Fisheries
Service's southeast regional
administrator.
At Keys sessions held in sum-
mer 2006, local dive-industry
leaders including Bob Holston,
Todd Firm and Spencer Slate
questioned whether rules would
stem the effects of global warm-
ing and weather damage.
"Nothing they can do here is
going to solve that," Holston
said.
But closing off some reef
areas to access could harm the
local economy, the dive operators
said.
Existing laws prohibit coral
harvesting and damage. Boat
anchoring is limited in reef
preservation areas enacted as part
of the Florida Keys National
Marine Sanctuary.
Sakashita said her agency
believes the coral decline is large-
ly attributable to global warming.


Parking permits fading away


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

In response to illegal sales
tactics used by certain electric-
car companies and a city budget
report that shows parking rev-
enue in the red, Key West will no
longer issue commercial parking
permits.
Until Thursday's decision, the
city sold the permits to business-
es, allowing their employees or
customers to park at any metered
spot without paying by the hour.
"Too many people are taking
advantage and it's costing us,"
Assistant City Manager John
Jones said. "The downtown area
has a high turnover rate for its
meters. That's how we make rev-
enue. With [commercial] parking
permits you can park there for 24
hours."
Business owners in Key West
use existing permits, but once
those permits expire, they won't
be able to renew.
Even though parking-meter
revenue has gradually increased
throughout the years, updated
budget projections show an esti-


mated $1.2 million will be taken.
in this fiscal year - $111,000
less than originally budgeted for.
City Finance Director Roger
Wittenberg reported $239,654 in
revenue for the first 2007-08 fis-
cal quarter, from October to
December.
The Ocean Key Resort pur-
chased commercial parking per-
mits for its employees so they
don't have to hunt for parking
spaces in downtown Key West,
General Manager Matt Traham
said.
"It going to be a pinch in our
parking for sure," Traham said.
"We wish that the city didn't
have to do this."
Traham said his employees'
expenses are sure to increase.
"We didn't mind paying the
rates that [the city] was charg-
ing," he said.
Those rates are $107.50 per
month, or $580.50, according to
city Parking Services. But that
revenue is not enough, officials
say, to rake in an adequate
amount of revenue that is more


effectively generated from park-
ing meters and $25 fines collect-
ed from parking tickets.
Those fines, however, equal
closer to $15.50 per ticket
because many aren't paid,
according to Wittenberg.
For this fiscal year, the city
estimates $668,000 in parking-
ticket revenue, short of its
$800,000 goal. For the first quar-
ter, 10,786 tickets were issued.
Last fiscal year, 40,864 park-
ing tickets were written and the
city collected $615,000 from
them, though it had budgeted for
$800,000.
The city issued 42,101 cita-
tions in 2006 and collected about
47 percent of the money for
those parking tickets, according
to a city finance report.
A resolution to make the per-
mits available passed in 2003,
Jones said, after downtown
employees complained about
having to feed the meters.
"It wasn't a problem in
2003," Jones said. "But in 2005,
the electric cars starting picking
up."

City finances struggling badly


Revenue down,
service cuts
are possible
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Key West Finance Director
Roger Wittenberg gave a some-
what dire report on the city's first
2007-08 fiscal quarter Tuesday
night, noting a decline in revenue
from building permit fees, a dip
in gas consumption, fewer park-
ing tickets issued and 33 fewer
cruise-ship visits projected for the
whole year.
"It's usually not this far off,"
Wittenberg said of the budget.
Results of that first quarter,
October to December, made for a
wary City Commission.
"We're going to have some
real issues ahead of us,"
Commissioner Dan Kolhage told


City Manager Jim Scholl.
Scholl acknowledged that, but
said meeting all $38.5 million
general-fund budget expectations
is difficult without cutting staff.
Salaries for city employees
account for 70 percent of the
budget.
Scholl said revenue will
increase one way or another, even
if it's something as miniscule as
writing more parking tickets.
"That's not sufficient
enough," Mayor Morgan
McPherson responded.
Commissioners Bill Verge and
Barry Gibson noted that more
than $2 million in uncollected
code-violation fines could offer
some budgetary relief.
Verge has requested city docu-
ments of unpaid fines and infor-
mation on how they're mitigated.
Permit fees for the first quarter
of the last fiscal year equaled


$678,000. This year, only
$283,000 was collected.
Wittenberg attributed last
year's high revenue to hotel


City Manager
Jim Scholl said
revenue will

way or another,
even if it's
something as
miniscule as
writing more
parking tickets.


reconstruction projects such as
the Parrot Key resort.
Business-license revenue is


healthy, but the number of cruise
passengers coming to Key West
has been on a steady decline since
2005, Wittenberg numbers show.
T'he city gets a $10.63 disem-
barkation fee from visiting pas-
sengers.
The Carnival Cruise Lines
ship Celebration cancelled 23
scheduled trips for a total of
34,000 passengers, or $252,000,
to the Mallory Square dock for
the year. The Novrwegian Gem
cancelled 10 trips, a loss of
23,800 passengers, or $65,450, to
the Outer Mole.
Even though there's a project-
ed loss in cruise passengers, the
first quarter did well.
"1That number is going to
change back and forth throughout
tle year." Port Director Raymond
Archer said.
Storms sometimes bring in
unplanned ship visits. In August,
Hurricane Dean rerouted several
ships to Key West, providing a


financial boost.
Last year, the city budgeted
for 392 ships to dock with about
700,000 passengers. In total,
docks received 403 port calls
with 830,000 passengers that
year.
Wittenberg noted "the city uti-
lizes a conservative investment
approach that is based on safety
first." Interest income is right
where it should be, at $523,000,
he said.
Key West's four largest com-
mercial tenants make up 76 per-
cent of the rent revenue: Tropical
Shell and Gifts, the Key West
Golf Course, Casa Cayo Hueso
and South Beach restaurant.
But the "current revenue
source won't meet budgeted
level," Wittenberg reported, and
expenditures will pile up quicker
than revenue. Services and
expenditures will have to be cut if
new revenue sources aren't
explored.

Medicare: Fishermen's can improve


Agency says
antibiotics
work needed
By JOHN DORSCHNER
jdorschner@MiamiHerald.com

Medicare has named five hos-
pitals - including Fishermen's
Hospital in Marathon - and 29
nursing homes in South Florida
as targets for quality improve-
ment.
Part of a new national pro-
gram, the hospitals are being
measured for surgical care
improvements. For nursing
homes, the measures are the rate
of bed sores and overuse of phys-
ical restraints on patients.
Some local institutions disput-
ed the findings Wednesday, and
Medicare spokesman Peter
Ashkenaz warned not to try to
read too much into measures.


"This is really a tool for us to
better evaluate the Quality
Improvement Organizations," he
said of the state groups that have
contracted with Medicare to
improve patient care.
Four of the hospitals -
Fishermen's, Holy Cross. North
Broward Medical Center and
Imperial Point Medical Center -
were targets for improvement for
only one measure: Not doing
enough to end the use of preven-
tative antibiotics within 24 hours
after surgery.
Lisa Rawlins, director of qual-
ity and performance improve-
ment at Broward Health, said the
problem with that measure is "not
the work being done, but the doc-
umentation."
Broward Health is the tax-
financed district that owns both
North Broward and Imperial
Point. Rawlins is the former


leader of Florida's health infor-
malion program.
Palm Springs General
Hospital, in Hialeah. was cited
for doctors ordering and patients
receiving treatment to prevent
blood clots for certain surgeries;
and stopping preventative antibi-
otics within 24 hours.
Another puzzling note in the
Medicare study, publicized in a
press release issued Tuesday, was
Homestead Manor, a nursing
home the federal report said
needed improvement in both
decreasing the rate of bed sores
and patients being physically
restrained too often.
"1 really don't understand it,"
Administrator Marie Simeus
said. She pointed out - correctly
- that in each of those measures
her nursing home earns the high-
est rating of five stars on the
state's website measuring nursing
home performance.
"Shouldn't the two regulatory


George Manios, 59, of Marathon I' .
passed away Sunday Feb. 3rd at home
surrounded by his loving family and
friends, after a heroic battle with cancer.
Born in Pireaus, Greece to Kastus and
Anna Manios, who proceeded him in death.
He is survived by his loving wife, Susan, six .
daughters, eleven grandchildren and five
great grandchildren and many others he '
considered as his sons and daughters.
Co-founder of Ikaros Aviation in 1989,
he spent the past several years enriching
our community in Marathon by volunteer-
ing countless hours with many charitable
and fraternal organizations. He served on
the House Committee for the Marathon
Elks Lodge and took great pride in running
the kitchen, serving meals to the members
and bringing smiles to all with his quick wit
and gregarious humor.
George was best known for his Award Winning restaurant, Georges Taverna, where he
served Greek cuisine and his "Flaming Cheese with Camel Meat" to locals and visitors alike.
One of George's favorite pastimes was dancing with his beautiful wife of 18 years, Susan.
He enjoyed time on the water, catching and preparing fish for anyone who "showed up." His
greatest treasure, however was simply spending time with his family and friends.
His family will receive friends Saturday, February 9, 2008, from 9:30-11:00 a.m. at San
Pablo Catholic Church in Marathon with a Celebration of Life Service immediately following
from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Julie Moss, a spokeswoman
for FMAQI, the Tampa-based
group that will do the quality
improvement work in Florida,
said. "It's hard for us to comment
because we didn't design or
make"' the measures.
Ashkenaz. the Medicare
spokesman, said the state and


federal agencies use different
data, but the discrepancies indi-
cate consumers should not rely
on them alone. He suggested
interested persons should look at
the many measures of hospital
and nursing home performance

aware of the new fuel charges. However, the cruise lines say they put out notice of the charges
late last year.


State probes fuel charge


Passengers say
they weren't
told of the fee
Associated Press

Florida's attorney general is
reviewing whether cruise lines
such as Carnival Corp. and Royal
Caribbean Cruises Ltd. - both
of which make regular port stops
in Key West - adequately dis-
closed surcharges they started
billing passengers this month to


offset rising fuel prices.
Attorney General Bill
NlcCollum has received 150
complaints from customlers
regarding the fuel surcharge,
spokes\x oman Sandi Copes said.
The charge w as announced in
November by both cruise lines
and it began to be applied on voy-
ages beginningm Feb. 1.
"'We are reviewing com-
plaints about \ whether cruise lines
can retroactively impose a fuel
supplement/fuel surcharge to pas-


sengers," Copes said in an e-mail.
She added that the primary con-
cern is "the adequate disclosure
of surcharges and whether or not
consumers are aware of sur-
charges up front at the point of
sale.'"
Carnival and Royal
Caribbean, the world's top two
cruise operators, both began a $5
per person, per day fuel "supple-
ment." Both NMiami-based cruise
lines said the charge applies only
to the first and second guests in

More insurance hearings planned


Executives
to return
mid-February
Associated Press


After two more days of gruel-
ing questions to state regulators
and insurance company execu-
tives, a special Senate panel
wrapped up its business Tuesday
as confused as when it began.
In fact, the Select Committee
on Property Insurance
Accountability decided it want-
ed more sworn testimony from


industry executives in mid-
Februarv to gather additional
information on wh\\y many coin-
panies haven't reduced premium
costs to property insurance cus-
tomers.
"At some point in time we're
going to have to recognize that
we can't have it all." said Steve
Geller. D-Cooper City. who co-
chaired the panel.
Executives from Allstate
Corp.. Nationwide Insurance
Co. of Florida, Florida Farm
Bureau Insurance, The liartford
Group and American Strategic


Insurance testified under oath
during roughly 16 hours of hear-
ings over the two days.
The panel heard from several
executives that they were con-
cerned about being able to
recoup timely reinsurance pay-
ments from the state's expanded
catastrophic fund in the after-
math of a major hurricane that
could put companies on the
brink of insolvency.
Florida regulators sought to
suspend Allstate from writing
any new policies last month, but

Carnival spokesman Tim
Gallagher said the cruise operator
was cooperating with the review.
"We believe that our fuel sup-
plenent complies with all appli-
cable laws," Gallagher said.
Royal Caribbean said in an e-
mail that it believes the charge is
a "fair and reasonable response"
to rising fuel costs. The company
said in last week's earnings report
that its fuel prices in the fourth
quarter of 2007 increased 41 per-
cent compared to the previous
year.
Royal Caribbean, which also
announced its fuel surcharge in
November, said it applies to its
Royal Caribbean International,
Celebrity Cruises and A/amara
Cruises brands.
"We intend to continue assess-
ing the supplement on a tempo-
rary basis, and may periodically
adjust it as fuel prices fluctuate,"
Royal Caribbean's statement
said.
Carnival operates 84 ships
among its brands: Royal
Caribbean has 35 total in its port-

'Shel Shocked'
The Red Barn opened a col-
lection of adult comedy vignettes
by Shel Silverstein this week
that put the audience through a
prism of delights from tickled
pink to evil pleasure.
Silverstein had a studio on
William Street, near the top of
Key West's "hill" - Solares
Hill, where he wrote and drew
and put together his Thurber-
esque books. He worked with the
Red Barn troupe on productions
at the little theater.
Gary McDonald, a founding
Red Barn member and set
designer, developed a cama-
raderie with the author and his
respect for Silverstein's talents
comes through in his direction of
this production.

The casting for the playlets is
genius. Robin Deck and George
Murphy will be forever married
and hilariously harried in my
mind now. Cricket Desmarais
and Elena Devers displayed
charming wickedness with
Sarah Goodwin as their foil.
Mook J and Shane Timlin
explored the humor of various
tortured forms of manliness.
Dale Kittle managed a nutty dig-
nity in his roles.
McDonald's set just kept
unfolding in new and different
ways for each skit and the cos-
tumes by Carmen Rodriguez were
simple and perfect. My favorite
was the cocker spaniel hat.
The show runs through March
8. Tickets are $25 and $30. Call

winning praise from fellow writ-
ers such as Scott Turow. His
reclusive hero Thorn, an out-
doorsman with little use for soci-

as he is durable - ever aware of
the creeping destruction of the
state's natural environment, he
has repeatedly taken on criminals
looking to make some money at
the expense of the ecology.
Borrowing facts from a real-
world environmental disaster,
Hall sets Thorn up against
destructive industrialists in
"Hell's Bay."

James Hall pretty much has the

Quartet in need of


a few good men


Keys Breeze
Barbershop
is down two
O n Jan. 26, the Keys
Breeze Barbershop
Quartet sang with the
Upper Keys Community Band in
a concert at Founders Park in
Islamorada. It was the fifth con-
secutive January the group par-
ticipated - and possibly the
last, as two of the singers are
moving away.
Mike Moore, the baritone, is
moving to Cocoa Beach and
Steve Keating, the tenor, is mov-
ing to Phoenix, Ariz. It also
means that the quartet will not
be offering singing valentines
this year - for the first time in
the last decade.
The remaining members,
brothers Tom Wantuck, lead, and
Ken Wantuck, bass, hope to
find two men in the Upper Keys
who can replace the departing
singers. They're looking for a
tenor and a baritone or bass.
Although experience in barber-
shop singing is not a necessity, it
would be a big help. The group
sings a capella, or without
accompaniment.
Range wise, barbershop
tenors sing most of their notes in
the E-F-G-A range on the treble
clef and must occasionally hit a
high B or C. Baritones usually
sing from F to F. like leads (or
Church tenors), and sing some


unusual intervals, as their part is
always the last to be inserted by
the arranger, so they need to
have a good ear.
Basses need to have a reso-
nant voice to provide the foun-
dation for the quartet and nor-
mally sing from F to F an octave
below the leads, occasionally
needing to hit a low D or E flat.


The difficulty
is finding

good voice
matches to

provide a
nice blend.

The difficulty is finding good
voice matches to provide a nice
blend. Sometimes wonderful
singers don't match each other
and the ensemble sound just
doesn't click. So the brothers
want to find two additional
singers who match their voices.
They will then rehearse once
a week to develop a repertoire to
sing at civic, cultural and party
activities. Anyone interested in
giving it a go is asked to call
Ken Wantuck at 852-0775 to
arrange for a get-together to see
how it might work out.

We headed for Big Pine Key,

in several of Dorsey's books, the
No Name plays a big role in
"Torpedo Juice."
The No Name Pub began in
1931 as a general store and bait-

storage room was even converted
into a brothel in the late 1930s.
Unfortunately, it's rumored to
have failed after several years

during the 1950s that the general
store and bait and tackle closed,

Right. They make it for you

we were indeed locals, she
warmed up to us and said they
"made the beer for anyone who
wanted it."
Although 1 had read about the
money covering the walls at the
No Name, you can't really
describe how it feels to be sur-
rounded by fluttering layers upon
layers of cash. Christie said that
they estimated it was around
$80,000 to $90.000 worth of dol-
lar bills. The bills all had writing
on them with things like "think
snow." "Buffalo New York,"
"fish on." "7 degrees in Nome
and 85 at No Name" and "Mike
and Anne 2006 Rhode Island."
In the book, one of the char-
acters says, "Only two social
rules on this island. Don't mess
with the miniature deer and don't
steal the No Name dollars off the
wall. Otherwise, anything goes.
People who aren't used to the
freedom lose their minds."

Coleman adopts a Key deer


~1Nd lVE (!-tL-ne


DORSEY / From 34

The No Name is popular with
the locals, but there were a lot of
tourists when we were there.
Donna took a photo, and all of a
sudden it was like being in a
disco. Several people around Lus
whipped out their cameras and
starting taking pictures, too. I
guess they felt more comfortable
after she started doing it
We knew going in that we
wanted the pizza, since we had
heard from everyone how good
it was at the No Name. And it
disappoint, as it was some of the
cheesiest pizza I've ever had
with a sweet handmade dough.
In the spirit of all of the peo-
ple who had been there before
us, we got out a dollar bill and
wrote on it with a Sharpie mark-
er, "Claudia and Donna's Dorsey
Adventure 2007." We were hand-
ed a lethal-looking staple gun,
and I let Donna do the honors.
Once we waddled back out
into the sun, we decided to try to
walk off that "I ate so much I
just might see it again" feeling.
We headed down the road to the
Bogie Channel Bridge, which
links Big Pine Key to No Name
Key. We discovered the Old
Wooden Bridge Fishing Camp
where Serge stayed during the
book.
This is definitely the type of
place you would go if you want-
ed to drop off of the grid. It was
built in 1943 and was named
after the bridge, which is no
longer wooden. Of course, it has
gone through some significant
renovations, and it's now called
the Old Wooden Bridge Guest
Cottages and Marina, better
known as the Old Wooden
Bridge Fish Camp.
After making it back to the
car, we decided that since we
were already so far south, we


Dorsey in the Keys today


Tim Dorsey was born in
Indiana and moved to
Florida at age 1, growing up
in Riviera Beach. He gradu-
ated from Auburn University.
He was a reporter for the
now-defunct Alabama
Journal from 1983 to 1987,
then went on to write and
edit for the Tampa Tribune
in 1987. He stayed there

might as well head a few more
miles down the road to see the
bat tower on Sugarloaf Key.
In "Torpedo Juice," the police
find a man crucified upside
down on the tower. Richter
Clyde Perky built the tower in
1929 to control the mosquito
problem at his fishing lodge. The
bats never wanted to be there in
the first place and didn't stick
around; the tower is a true testa-
ment to man's folly.
The hulking structure looks
like a wooden space ship out in
the middle of nowhere.
We continued our hunt for the
Tim Dorsey trail following in the
footsteps of Serge the loveable
serial killer. At the end of
"Torpedo Juice," Serge leads a
group of people on a scavenger
hunt. Some of the items on the
list:
* The bat tower.
* Jimmy Buffet's secret Key
West studio.
* The hanging tree in
Captain Tony's.
* Captain Tony himself.
* A Hemingway cat.
* An insane person's car.
At the end of the scavenger
hunt, Serge has to be at the
Southernmost Point "sitting on
the seawall legs hanging over
and kicking with hope." When


until 1999, when he left to
write full-time.
He's scheduled to sign
copies of his 10th book,
"Atomic Lobster," which just
recently came out, at 2 p.m.

Highway; and again at 5:30

we got to the concrete buoy, the
scene was anything but serene.
of course. A long line of tourists
had formed to take pictures of
themselves at the landmark. 1
didn't have to touch the buoy
since it wasn't on the scavenger
list, but Donna did take some
pictures of Japanese tourists tak-
ing pictures.
Key West complete, we
decided to head back home to
the Upper Keys and decided to
try to spot a Key deer. In the
book, Coleman (Serge's side-
kick) takes in one of the deer as
a pet and names him Jo Jo.
At the end of the day, our
adventure came full circle as we
made our way back to the No
Name Pub. At night the crowd
was much different - more sub-
dued, more local. We once again
feasted on pizza and beer.
I asked the bartender where
the pool table and jukebox were,
and she said that they hadn't had
those in years. Then, she said I
must have been reading Tim
Dorsey's books.
She told me that one day two
guys came into the bar wearing
T-shirts that said "Serge" and
"Coleman." Apparently, we're
not the first to follow the Dorsey
trail, and I'm sure we won't be
the last.

Civil War Days bring back history


Reenactments
part of it
at Fort Zach
The roar of cannon fire and
the sight of soldiers in
Civil War uniforms are
greeting visitors to Fort Zachary
Taylor Historic State Park in
Key West today and Sunday as
the annual Civil War Days festi-


briefs


Erotic art still
up for auction

A live painting party at the
Hard Rock Cafe last weekend
was a huge success, with artists,
models and partiers all joining in.
The erotic art produced from
that event has been on the auc-
tion block since at the SoDu
Gallery at 1100 Duval St., Key
West. Tonight, a closing recep-
tion is set for 7 to 9 p.m.
Proceeds benefit the Keys
GLEE, or Green Living and
Energy Education.
The pieces were created by
Susan Guadagno, Letty Nowak.
Will Fernandez, Sherry Sweet
Tewell, Christa Hunt and
Markyp.


val transforms the tort into a
mid-1860s encampment.
Key West was the only Deep
South port that remained in
Union hands throughout the Civil
War. Fort Zachary Taylor was a
vital base for the Union blockade
of Confederate ships, and block-
ade runners captured by Union
vessels were forced to anchor in
the waters just off the fort.
During the family-friendly
festival, re-enactors in period
costume depict both Union and
Confederate military personnel.
An authentic Union camp is
established inside Fort Taylor,
with Confederate forces
encamped on the park grounds
outside. Other re-enactors are to
portray merchants, craftsmen,
period musicians and civilians of
the era.
The festival's main event is to
involve a re-created engagement
between land forces and block-
ade runners attempting to escape.
Plans call Ior re-enactors portray-
ing Union and Confederate
troops to board historic Key West
schooners to do battle in Key
West Harbor just offshore.
During the fray, a blockade
runner is to be captured, fol-
lowed by the trial of the vessel's
captain based on an actual 1862
court case.
Other scheduled events during


THHTETDSqR.NTE


the historic weekend include
arms inspections, demonstrations
of seacoast artillery utilizing an
original 10-inch Rodman cannon,
re-creations of military maneu-
vers, living history demonstra-
tions of "the art of soldiering"
and 1860s medical techniques,
demonstrations of crafts such as
candle making and textile weav-
ing, a ladies' tea and a period ball
with musicians performing songs
of the Civil War era.
Civil War Days is presented
by the Friends of Fort Zachary
Taylor, a nonprofit citizen sup-
port organization. Most events
are to take place in the fort,


which contains the largest collec-
tion of Civil War cannons in the
United States, or in the 54-acre
state park that surrounds it. Tours
of the historic fort are to be
offered throughout the weekend.
At 11 a.m. today, a traditional
military march is scheduled down
Duval Street to Fort Taylor. The
procession recalls the Union
forces' Civil War-era march
through town to occupy the fort.
The sea battle is scheduled
for 2:30 p.m. followed by the
blockade runner's trial. The peri-
od ball is set for 8 p.m.
Sunday's activities are to
include arms inspections, a


patrol skirmish and a variety of
living history demonstrations.
Fort Taylor and the park can
be accessed between 8 a.m. and
sunset daily, from an entrance on
Southard Street past Thomas
Street. Daily entrance fees,
which include a pass allowing
visitors to leave and return, are
$1.50 per person on foot or bike,
$3.50 for a motorized vehicle
and one person, $6 for a vehicle
and two people, and $.50 for
each additional passenger.
Admission to the festival is
an additional $4 per adult and $2
per child 10 and older. Children
under 10 are admitted free.


BETWEEN SETS: Key West photographer C.J. Groth has won top honors in a national photo
competition of black-and-white images for this one,'Between Sets,' taken in Cuba. Double

photographic world, chose it for first place in its February edition. 'Between Sets' is one in a

Named for Cuba's first democratically elected president, the 'Tomas Estrata Palma' was one of
three ships that carried fruit and cargo between Havana and Key West as part of Henry
Flagler's railroad operation. A Monday talk recounts the shipping operation's history.


Flagler ships 'launch'


Program looks
at link among
Keys, Havana
Tycoon Henry Flagler not
only brought railroads to the
Florida Keys, he created a Key
West-to-Havana shipping fleet.
The story of three cargo ships
S measuring up to 350 in length
will be told at a 7 p.m. Monday
program at the Key Largo library.


"Before Henry Flagler died in
1913,. he commissioned and
funded three ferries, each with a
capacity for 30 refrigerated rail-
road cars," said Jerry Wilkinson,
who will present the Upper Keys
Historical Preservation Society
program.
The ships commuted between
Key West and Havana until 1935,
when the Labor Day hurricane
destroyed the track that linked the


Florida East Coast Railway to the
mainland.
The ships relocated to Fort
Lauderdale, and later saw mili-
tary service during World War II.
The ferries were sold to private
firms after the war. One of the
ships, the Henry Flagler, was
known to be in service as late as
1983.
Wilkinson's program will be
illustrated by electronic slides.
The event, in Trade Winds Plaza,
is free and open to the public.

The Palace Gardens Difference

For nearly 25 years, The Palace Gardens Assisted Living Community in Homestead has been known
as a leader in providing outstanding care to seniors. While our grounds and the campus are beautiful,
there are more than a few reasons why The Palace Gardens is different from all others.

1. Continuum of Care -
The Palace Gardens is part of The Palace
Family of Senior Living Communities which
offers accommodations that meet everyone's
needs, from Independent Living and Assisted
Living, to Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation,
and even Home Health. You can rest assured
that at The Palace, your needs will be met, no
matter what may happen in the future.

2. Palace Training &
Education Center
Because our residents come first, every
employee must reflect the higher standards
of our comImunities. Based on Ritz-Carlton
procedures, a comprehensive orientation
S / program reinforces this focus. Regular training
and educational programs continue so that
A.' residents will always receive the very best
. : care and services.

3. Local Ownership -
Founded in 1980 by Helen and Jacob
Shaham, The Palace is privately owned and
locally operated by these self-made individuals
_...who foresaw the need for quality senior
living environments. Their constant
involvement today ensures the tradition they
S. established for the communities and services
bearing The Palace name: only the best.

Conchs look for playoffs

return after recent drought


Main question
mark is who will
be No. 2 pitcher
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Three years ago, the Key
West High School baseball team
won its llth state championship.
Since then, it hasn't even reached
the state playoffs.
It's enough to evoke trepida-
tion in Conch fans, as diehard
and outspoken as they are, but
coach Miguel Menendez is con-
fident the dry spell will soon end.
"If there are any antsy Conch
fans out there, I would tell them to
sit back and enjoy the ride because


this program is awfully close to
being an elite-type team again."
said the 30-year-old Menendez,
whose team plays a preseason
game against Miami Southridge at
7:30 tonight at Rex Weech Field.
In two seasons under
Menendez, the Conchs are 35-
19. including 17-9 last season.
They have lost twice to Belen
Jesuit in the semifinals of the
District 16-4 tournament.
"I'm sure Conch fans are dis-
appointed, but not as much as
me," Menendez said. "I don't
worry about the perceived pres-
sure from the fans, because it
can't exceed the pressure 1 put on

Nebraska's first game

ROSS / From 45

has made the trip to Michigan to
meet with head coach Bill Cubit
and tour the facilities.
"I like it; it was a good envi-
ronment," Ross said.
Ross will certainly be playing
against the big boys next year. as
his Broncos will open the 2008
season with a visit to the
University of Nebraska, one of the
most storied programs in college
football. The Huskers' home sta-
dium accommodates upward of
85,000 fans, a far cry from any
place Ross has ever played.
"I'll be ready for it," Ross, who
plans to study criminal justice, said.
Marathon head coach Lance
Martin said he met Bronco coach-
es at a conference in California,
who offered Ross a scholarship
immediately upon seeing game
film of him.
Ross played linebacker this year


after two years as a defensive end.
"We moved him to linebacker
this year because that's where he
was being recruited.... He's not
quite big enough to play end in
college," Martin said. "We moved
him back to end out of necessity
because of injury, so he got a taste
of it this year. Now he's going to
become a full-time one once he
goes to Western Michigan."
Ross will be the third player to
play Division I football under
Martin: Rex Hill attends the
University of Central Florida and
Ryan Paros attends Florida
Atlantic University.
Martin said it's difficult to get
his players noticed: this season
alone he sent out more than 100
tapes to prospective schools.
"That's the hardest thing about
playing football down here, is you
have quality kids that can play
college football but no one takes
notice of them because we're off
the beaten path," he said.


Wayman Ross and his mom Jolita Beckford sign
scholarship. His Dolphin coach Lance Martin helps out.

Lady Conchs hope to ride success


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


Last spring's late success,
which brought out big crowds and
imbued a channing little ballpark
with a charged atmosphere, is still
fresh in memory for the Key West
High School softball team.
The Conchs, under first-year
coach David Gootee, won their first
District 16-4A title, reached the
state's Elite Eight for the first time


and finished with a 16-13 record.
This year's team, which is
playing in a preseason tourna-
ment this weekend in West Palm
Beach, hopes to surpass last sea-
son's accomplishments. "The
girls seem to have a much greater
sense of urgency. in large part due
to the success of last year's
team," Gootee said.
Some major contributors from


last season return, including sen-
ior second baseman Jianna
Hernandez. senior left fielder
Kristen Babich and sophomore
right fielder Lauren Wells.
Hernandez. the school's
homecoming queen, sparkled on
defense a year ago and was a rally
starter with her bat. Babich and
Wells both hit with power.
"They will be our leaders,"
Gootee said. "because of natural
ability, but more important,
because of the leadership they are
giving to our younger girls."
The Conchs emphasized hit-
ting and defense in practice.
"We should have a strong bat-
ting lineup again." Gootee said,
"but this is definitely a scrappier
team. We have a lot of younger
players, so how fast they develop
will certainly impact our success."
The top pitcher will be junior
Lindsay Yochum, who returns for
her third varsity season. Yochum
has been throwing with more
speed and now "understands how
to pitch to batters," Gootee said.
Yochum will be backed up by
Wells and Gigi Orofino. a senior
playing softball for the first time
after years in the soccer program.
She will also play in the outfield.
The Conchs expect to get a lift
on offense from hard-hitting soph-
omore Chelsea Storr, who was the
top scorer on the basketball team.
Key West will play its home
opener at 6 p.m. Friday against
Monsignor Pace, which it defeated,
6-1, last April, for the district title.

year is to win the state title."
The Conchs will be led by sen-
ior shortstop Raiko Alfonso - who
started as a freshman on the 2005
title team - and junior second
baseman Frankie Ratcliff. Both are
excellent fielders and strong hitters.
"1 think that Raiko and Frankie

for us to be successful."
The team's other three seniors

pitching staff and, said Menendez,
"has continued to improve."
Weller will be backed up by
junior P.J. Arencibia, who worked
a good number of innings last sea-
son, along with junior Drew
Rivera and junior Kevin
Hemandez, a varsity newcomer.
Others who could pitch are out-
fielders Arencibia, Nolan Thomas
and Alfred Rahming.
"Our biggest question mark is
who will step up to be the No. 2 guy
behind Weller," Menendez said. "We
feel like the staff is deep with guys
that can throw strikes and get people
out. And don't be surprised to see
Frankie Ratcliff on the mound."
The Conchs have a new catcher,
Joseph Gandolfo, to replace the
graduated Louie Pazo. "He is a
sophomore who has really improved
since last season," Menendez said.
Menendez expects a very good
defensive team and an offense that
can be explosive.

'What a great win'


CANES / From 45

opener. "It's very rare to get a
shutout in lacrosse but D.J.
came close." Bryan said. "If
he'd gotten a little more defen-
sive help, he might have shut
them out."
The young team - 29 of 41
players on the roster are freshmen
and sophomores - had "kind of
a shaky start," Bryan said. "but
then we found the rhythm."
"There are things we need to
do better, like ball control and
running the offense," Bryan
said. "We were able to score on
a lot of unsettled situations that
weren't the result of controlled
offense. But we'll get there.
There's time."
Results from a Friday home
game against Palmer Trinity
were not available at press
time.
This week, the Canes travel
to Miami Country Day
Wednesday and to the Ransom
Everglades Invitational
Tournament Friday and Feb.
16. The next home game is 5
p.m. Feb. 19 against American
Heritage.


Lady Canes win
The Lady Hurricanes, play-
ing at home Tuesday, thundered
to a 15-2 victory over
Palmetto.
"What a great win." girls
coach Mark Hall said. "We are
happy to have played as well as
we did for the first game of the
season.
The Lady Hurricane offense
completely overwhelmed
Palmetto.
Senior Vallarie Ostenson
scored six goals for Coral
Shores, and Rachel Catanio
fired three goals into the net.
Brittany Wood, Lexi Glista and
Melissa Sante each scored two.
Dannnon Magrane made her
varsity debut in the net with
five saves.
"Palmetto has always been a
strong program," Hall said.
"Maybe they're not the team they
used to be - or maybe we're not
the team we used to be."
After a Friday home game
against Palmer Trinity (results
not available), the Lady Canes
go on the road this week with a
Tuesday game at Nova High
School and a Thursday game at
Killian.

St. Brendan

dispatches Conchs


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contribulor

Despite having a height advan-
tage, the Key West High School
boys hoops team was outrebound-
ed Wednesday night in a 55-50 loss
to Edison in a District 16-4A tour-
nament game at St. Brendan High
in Miami.
"We got outhustled on the
boards." said coach Paul Davis,
whose team was ousted in the first
round for the third consecutive
year. "They wanted the ball more."
The Conchs never led against a
team they had defeated, 55-51, in
the regular season.
Senior guard Michael
Gallagher scored 15 points in his
last high school game. Junior
Vladimyr Sibera had 13 points and
senior Richie Connack scored 12.
Freshman point guard Keith
Valdez scored only two points,
both on free throws. "He didn't
take over the game like he usually
does." Davis said.


The Conchs' post-game reaction?
"For the most part they were
happy-go-lucky." Davis said. "I
told them that you can't just turn it
on - you have to do it in practice."
Key West, which won four of
its last seven games to finish 8-15,
is 21-49 in three years under
Davis and has yet to win a district
game on the road.
Three regulars will return next
season - Valdez. Sibera and
Zach Babich.
"1 know we'll be better next
year," Davis said. "These players
coming up. like Jycorae Mason.
Emanuel Jefferson and Nick
Scammacca. are talented, have
more energy and they listen."
Davis, who coaches the JV
football team, said, "With the
guys I had this season, it was hard
to get inside their minds. Some of
them thought, 'He's a football
guy, what does he know about
basketball?'"

Brossard to lead


Dolphin tennis


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Marathon High School tennis
coach Mark Hooper won't let a
winless season in 2007 deter his
enthusiasm for this year's team.
In 2003, Maciek Sykut and
Marek Czerwinski won the state
championship in doubles and
Sykut won the singles for the
Dolphins. Hooper says he sees
their qualities in some of the play-
ers on the 2008 roster, especially
on the girls team.
"We've had for two years play-
ers go to [the state champi-
onships] and we have the poten-
tial to see that happen again with
some of our players. It might be as
a team; the girls team is the
strongest I've had in four years,"
he said.
Leading the way will be fresh-
man Marisa Brossard, the only
player whose role Hooper has
clearly defined. Brossard will be
the Dolphins' No. 1 and face the
opposing team's best players each
match.
Brossard is ranked 32nd in the
state in the 14-and-under age
group and has placed highly in
tournaments across Florida. In the
past year she has won three tour-
naments: the Zone Super Series in
Jacksonville, the Olde City Super
Series in St. Augustine and the
Fall Super Series in Orlando.
Junior Michele Bellevue and
her sister Rose, a freshman, have


just transferred to Marathon from
Haiti. Hooper said they have
experience playing tournaments
in Haiti, Puerto Rico and Miami.
Hooper said freshman Kelsey
Wonderlin and sophomore Angela
Farello are also strong players.
"Angela is a very strong hit-
ter," Hooper said. "She- likes to
grip it and rip it."
Eighth-grader John Danaher
and junior Kerry Wonderlin will
lead the way for the boys, Hooper
said.
While last year was a struggle
for the Dolphins, Hooper said win
or lose he expects the same atti-
tude last year's team had.
"I've had teams that were phe-
nomenal and I've had teams like
last year that lost every match.
They never put their heads down
and all I ask is to give everything
you have on the court," Hooper
said.
Hooper said he realizes
Marathon is a small school and
lacks a feeder program like those
in the Upper Keys and Key West.
"We're doing our best and
teaching [the kids] a sport they
can play the rest of their life.
Winning and losing doesn't define
how you played, it's what you've
done on the court," he said.
Marathon will open the regular
season against LaSalle High
School Monday at 3:30 p.m. at the
Marathon Community Park.

-Softball Lady Canes crush MAST


Eight players
get hits in
24-7 blowout
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Coral Shores' Lady
Hurricanes "knocked off some
rust" in Thursday's softball


opener, coach Paul Grewe said.
More impressively, the Canes
knocked district opponent
Maritime and Science
Technology Academy off the
field, 24-7.
"We got the win and knocked
off some rust," said Grewe, co-
coach with Mike Young.
"Everybody got some time on
the field so that was nice."


The Lady Canes, returning
most of the lineup, staggered the
visiting Lady Makos with 15
runs in the bottom of the first.
"We had some nice hits,"
Grewe said. MAST "made com-
mitted some errors so that meant
runners were on base when we
got the hits. Instead of one run,
we'd get two or three."
Starting pitcher Holly Given
limited MAST to three runs
before turning the mound over to


other members of the pitching
staff.
Second baseman Rosie
Malzacher had two hits, includ-
ing a double. Freshman Raychel
Stephenson and Given each had
a pair of hits.
Stephanie Lietaert capped the
scoring with a three-run triple.
Eight Lady Canes had a sin-
gle hit.
The defense, with veterans
Chelsea Russell at catcher, Ciara
Sanchez at third, Lauren
Sanchez at short, Malzacher at
second and Shelby Gentes at
first, played like veterans.
Returning regulars Andrea
Cockerham and Tessie Worden
were back in the outfield, along
with newcomer Michelle


Sexton.
Coral Shores travels to
Gulliver Prep, the defending dis-
trict and regional champion, this
week. The Lady Raiders reached
the state Class 3A championship
game last season but lost a 2-0
game to Trinity Prep of Winter
Park.
The scheduled Tuesday game
may be moved to Wednesday at
Gulliver's request, Grewe said.
"This will be completely dif-
ferent" from MAST, Grewe said.
"Gulliver is the team we want to
become. As always, this is a
chance to see where we stand
right now."
The Lady Canes host
Archbishop Carroll under the
lights at 7 p.m. Friday.

Ransom ends
Coral Shores'
hoops season
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


More than a season closed for
the Coral Shores boys basketball
team in a loss in the District 16-
3A semifinal round Wednesday.
Nearly every player on the
Hurricane roster finished his
high-school career on the hard-
wood.
Next year's team will be
completely different - includ-
ing the head coach.
"We're losing a big group of
guys, so this is a good time for
me to turn it over to the new
coach," Andy Thiery said of his
plan to step away from the pro-
gram. "They can all start togeth-
er and build something."
The Hurricanes finished the
regular season at 5-10, with
notable wins over Key West and
Marathon. Coral Shores went 4-
4 in district play, finishing third.
Ransom Everglades ended
the postseason for the Canes
with a 55-35 win in the district
tournament semifinal.
"It wasn't a lack of effort.
Our guys went out and played
hard." Thiery said. "But you've
got to make the shots, too.


"We missed and they didn't.
Ransom shot about 80 percent in
the first half and didn't miss a
free throw. That was the game."
Coral Shores tied the game at
8-8 with a minute left in the first
quarter.
"We made a rushed shot then
Ransom took it down and hit a
three," Thiery said. "They hit
another one and now it's 14-8
going into the second."
By halftime, Ransom (17-8)
moved out to a 14-point lead.
The Raiders advance to the dis-
trict final against Gulliver Prep.
Randell Jackman scored 12
points to lead the Hurricanes,
followed by Chris Noble with
seven points.
Both graduate this spring,
along with teammates Stephen
Fowler, a three-year starter at
center: guards Ray Ferro, Max
Jones and Sammy Leon; and for-
wards Anthony Whitehead and
Max Disser.
Thiery recommended assis-
tant varsity coach Patrick
Meyers, a Coral Shores gradu-
ate, to take over the basketball
program next winter. That deci-
sion will be made by school
administration later this year.
"I've got a baby at home now
so I need to pull back a little bit,"
Thiery said.
He plans to return as coach of
the girls volleyball program.

1st quarter dooms Fins


Marathon can't
dig from hole,
season's over
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.con

The Marathon High School
boys basketball season ended
Tuesday with a loss to Palmer
Trinity School, 84-64, in the
first round of district tourna-
ment play.
Coach Kevin Freeman said
the Dolphins were defensively
keying on two Falcon players,
but the whole team came out
firing and put his team in a
hole they could not escape later
in the game.
"They got off to a huge
start. We started off man-to-
man and we couldn't stop
them, then went to zone and we
couldn't stop them," Freeman
said. "We threw everything at
them."


The Falcons' game plan
defensively was simple-stop
senior guard Blake Friedman.
They did so effectively, play-
ing a box-and-one on Friedman
and holding him scoreless for
the entire first half.
The Dolphins trailed 25-7
after a quarter and 47-22 at
halftime.
Freeman said the Dolphins
had responded after a lacklus-
ter first quarter and were play-
ing well in the second. Nyran
Ross scored 11 points in the
quarter and the Dolphins
closed the gap to 31-22.
But Friedman was called for
a charge on a questionable play
where he made the basket and
could have cut the deficit to six
with a free throw.
Instead, the Falcons went on
a 15-0 run and led by 25 points
at halftime.
The Dolphins outscored
Palmer in each of the last three


quarters, but tile firsl--quiIarter
deficit was too much to over-
come.
Senior point guard scored
IS points with five assists and
Ross had 14 points.
Friedman scored 13 points
in the second half, the last
three of which came on a three
point shot with 2:30 remaining.
The basket gave Friedman
1,001 points in his career.
Freeman said Friedman is
just the third player in Dolphin
history to reach the milestone.
Marathon finished 9-15 on
the season, not the record
Freeman said he was expect-
ing. Still, he praised the team
for sticking together all year.
"We came together as a
team. Three days later they're
already asking when the Vgym
will be open." Freeman said.
Seniors Eric Carey and
Vicente Bolano will graduate
along with Armstrong and
Friedman.
