The Monroe County School
Board thrust itself to the forefront
of a statewide education debate
Tuesday when it officially
endorsed a new set of science
standards that could require
Florida schools to teach evolution
as fact.

Along the way, Walt Disney
World is showing that enough
people are fascinated with
wildlife conservation that endan-
gered-species programs can have
tourist appeal.
Under a program run by the
U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service,
Disney scientists and technicians
are running a captive-breeding
program of Key Largo woodrats
in Disney's Animal Kingdom
theme park.
In the meantime, federal biol-
ogists are trying to find ways to
preserve the Key Largo
woodrats' remaining natural
habitat and make it safer for
them.

Keys School Board is first in the state to
endorse new statewide science standards


The board unanimously
adopted a resolution that supports
the new standards, which include
evolution. Board members say
they hope the resolution will


encourage the state Board of
Education to pass the new stan-
dards at its Tuesday meeting.
About a dozen of Florida's 67
school districts passed resolu-
tions urging the state board not to
adopt the new standards because


they don't include an alternative
to evolution.
The Monroe County School
District is the sole district to have
passed a resolution supporting
the standards.

DCF vet focuses on Keys


New region chief

agency priorities
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

Alan Abramowitz spent his
professional life adapting to unfa-
miliar settings.
He taught domestic-violence


prevention on the Thai/Laotian
border for the Peace Corps, inter-
viewed refugees from the
Rwandan massacres in Nairobi in
the early 1990s and worked
throughout Florida on behalf of
troubled families.
Now, as the new chief of the
newly created southern region -
consisting of Monroe and Miami-
Dade counties - of the Florida


Department of Children and
Families, Abramowitz feels well
suited to take on what he calls
one of the most unique areas of
the state.
"1 treat it like a military job.

He should know what that's

Fugitive might be in Keys


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


A fugitive con man accused of
pulling a shutter scam on dozens
of Florida homeowners may be
seeking shelter in Islamorada,
says a Brevard County detective
on his trail.
Andrew Femald. 50, also is
wanted on a Monroe County war-
rant on theft charges, said Mark
Jennewein of the Melbourne
Police Department.
"This guy is very good at what
he does," Jennewein said. "He's
loud and boisterous, and could
sell the Seven Mile Bridge."
After a lengthy investigation
involving at least $100,000 in
losses from Brevard County
alone, Femald agreed to plead
guilty to scheming to defraud .
Out on $16,000 bond, he did-
n't show up for a Dec. 21 sen-
tencing date.
"He's also wanted in Daytona


Beach, Port
Orange, St.
Lucie ...,
Jennewein
said. "There
are a lot of
warrants."
A
December-
wFERNAL arrant from
M o n r o e
County charges Fernald with
renting a Hummer from a
Marathon company and failing to
return it for months. "When they
finally got it back, there was
about $10,000 in damage to it."
the detective said.
The plea bargain reached in
Brevard County didn't fully satis-
fy many of Fernald's victims,
according to a Floida Todayv
story. Prosecutors said the agree-
ment includes possible imprison-
ment of up to 15 years and avoid-
ed what could be a complex trial,


the newspaper reported.
"Now he's jumped bail and
could be out scamming more
people," Jennewein said. "We
believe he's back down in the
Keys, and we think we're getting
close to him."
Jennewein said Femald previ-
ously has stayed with acquain-
tances on Upper Matecumbe
Key, and reportedly was spotted
at a local coffee shop. A tip
received this week suggests he is
still in Islamorada.
"If somebody down there is
letting him stay with them, they
may not realize what serious
trouble this guy is in." Jennewein
said. "We put up billboards to
drive him out of Brevard."
Fernald is 5-foot-10 and
weighs 250 pounds. He speaks
with a New York accent.
Anyone with information on
Femald's whereabouts can call
Jennewein at (321) 409-3486, or
Monroe County Crime Stoppers
at (800) 346-TIPS.


Woodrats find a home at Disney


DISNEY / From I

learned about the once-little-
known rodent, is displayed on a
bank of computer and video
monitors next to a lab window on
Animal Kingdom's Rafiki's
Planet Watch tour.
Not niany scientists get to do
their work in front of a crowd.
The visibility only helps, accord-
ing to Catharine Wheaton, a
Disney reproductive endocrinol-
ogist.
"This is probably a different
place for a scientist to be," added
research specialist Katie Leighty.
The furry, brown-and-white
Key Largo woodrat makes for a
nice draw.
"They're very cute," said
Anne Savage, a Disney senior
conservation biologist.
They're also difficult to study
in the wild because they seek iso-
lation, are nocturnal and shy, and
like to build nests under things so
they can live in hiding, Savage
said.
"We have 27 animals right
now. We've had 15; pups. That's
the most exciting thing," Savage
said. "We've figured out how to
breed them in captivity. Some of
the pups born at Disney's Animal
Kingdom have become moms

Largo.


themselves."
Yet the species remains very
troubled.
Its population now is confined
to a single island, Key Largo. It
lives in tropical hardwood
forests, mainly in two protected
areas. Much of its historical
range has been plowed into sub-
divisions of $1 million homes.
The other animals that threat-
en it are not all native, said Cindy
Schulz, the endangcred-species
supervisor in the U.S. Fish &
Wildlife Vero Beach office. A
large number of feral cats roam
Key Largo, hunting prey.


A few months ago, when the
signal from one woodrat's radio
collar meandered off into an open
meadow and stopped, researchers
made an unsettling discovery
after someone went out to check:
Burmese pythons, large snakes
not native to the United States,
had spread to the Keys from the
Florida Everglades. One of them
had swallowed the unfortunate
woodrat.
No one knows how many Key
Largo woodrats remain, though
Schulz guesses there are 200 at
the most.

iform and enterococcus,

we -'i '.i our past


By DAN GALLAGHER


When the Florida East Coast Railway was
built, the construction engineers did not start out
at the Homestead end and work their way to Key
West as they progressed. The workers were build-
ing the railway in a parallel fashion throughout


the Keys between the years of 1905 through 1912.
Here we see the roadbed leading from Key West
to Stock Island in progress in February 1906.
More fill would be added in the coming year but
this causeway would not see track or trains until
1911.

Walker: Religion safe


EVOLUTION / From 1

that developed the standards, told
The Reporter that "the overall
quality and scope of these stan-
dards is missed because of one
political issue embedded in"
them.
She said the concept of evolu-
tion is essential to understanding
21st century biology and that, in
her opinion, "people who have
never been taught evolution in
the first place don't understand
that it doesn't really undermine
religion."
"I'm a lifelong Methodist and
1 find no conflict between my
spiritual life and my rational, sci-
entific self," she said.
Walker isn't alone.
The Clergy Letter Project, a
Butler University initiative that
works to dispel the notion that
religion and science are at odds,
has garnered 11,183 signatures
from clergy members who say


teaching evolution does not
undermine religion.
More than 400 of those signa-
tures come from Florida clergy
members.
Walker said most of the reso-
lutions against the new standards
were passed by school districts
that scored very poorly on the
science FCAT, which is based on
Florida's current science stan-
dards.
"So the rationale is, do you
want those folks setting the agen-
da for the 21st century?" she
asked. " I don't think so."
Walker said that of the seven
members on the state Board of
Education, two have said pub-
licly they'll vote for the stan-
dards, two have said they'll vote
against them and three remain
undecided.
"I hope it's the tail that wags
the dog," she said of the resolu-
tion, which was passed, coinci-
dentally, on the 199th anniver-
sary of Charles Darwin's birth.


Agency realigns


DCF / From 1

U.S. Army's Judge Advocate
General, or JAG, Corps, follow-
ing graduation from Florida State
University law school.
He's been with DCF since
2000, serving in Pinellas and
Palm Beach counties and as dis-
trict administrator of what used to
be District 7. which was made up
of Orange, Osceola, Seminole
and Brevard counties.
DCF recently realigned its
service areas from districts to
regions that coincide with the
state's 20 judicial circuits.
Abramowitz was in Monroe
County this week promoting the
new alignments and a policy of
trying harder to keep families
together, and taking children
from troubled homes only as a
last resort.
"We're focusing on in-home
prevention. We found there's an
adverse impact on children when
we take them out of the home"
compared with working with
families to find solutions, he said.
Once DCF begins an investi-
gation and the child is taken from
the home, the goal of the agency
is to reunite the family within a
year, Abramowilz said.
DCF's image in Monroe
County has been sullied recently


by the case of

Thomas of
Key Largo.
The 13-
month-old's
mother, Amy
M arie
Stephenson,
ABRAMOWITZ was convicted
in January of
aggravated manslaughter for
reportedly starving Jasmine. The
conviction carries with it up to 30
years in prison and has a recom-
mended minimum sentence of 12
years.
Jasmine died 36 days after
DCF got involved with her case.
Though Jasmine, who was
born premature, starved to death,
a DCF investigator never report-
ed how thin. she was, never
arranged for therapy and never
contacted doctors, a DCF man-
agement review stated. The
investigator also stated in her
report that although Jasmine was
living in a house where people
took illegal drugs on a regular
basis and smoked heavily inside,
her risk level was "low."
Abramowitz did not defend
the investigator, who is no longer
with DCF, but said the case over-
shadowed the good work being
done by other investigators in the
county.

Extra pay going


by the wayside


Administrators'
salaries instead
to be adjusted
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbumiceq@keysreporiter.com

Administrative supplemental
pay, which for years has drawn
accusations of giving unfair
bonuses to school administrators,
is a thing of the past in the
Monroe County School District.
Tuesday, the board voted
unanimously to do away with the
supplements and to allow
Superintendent Randy Acevedo
to create a new administrative
salary schedule for the 2008-09
school year.
More than $1.4 million is
being paid out in supplements
overall this year to teachers and
administrators alike. Teachers
receive an average of $1,908
while administrators gets an
average of $4,403.
During the upcoming budget
process, Acevedo will revise the
job descriptions of all non-union
employees receiving supple-
ments to reflect all the duties the
employees are expected to per-
form, instead of assigning duties
piecemeal through supplements.
He'll then propose a new
salary schedule to the board.
The agreement could be a solu-
tion to a problem that's plagued
Keys public schools for years.
While the School District has
historically been in line with

i. briefs


County Web site
redirects to Davie

In what appears to be an odd
turn of circumstance, users of the
Monroe County Web site
Thursday might have tapped into
the town of Davie in Broward
County, a coincidence that
piqued the interest of some local
conspiracy theorists.
Former County Administrator
Tom Willi, who was fired in
December, worked as adminis-
trator in Davie prior to his three
years working for Monroe
County.


other districts in the amount paid
in supplements for jobs like
coaching or leading after-school
activities, it has far exceeded
those districts in the amount paid
in supplements to administrators
and support personnel.
The past t\o ),ears, two sepa-
rate reports from outside consult-
ants have rebuked the district for
its excessive supplemental pay.
and recommended rolling neces-
sary supplements into employee
salaries.
The agreement could also
mean the end of a slew of heated
arguments between fiscally con-
servative board members John
Dick, Steven Pribramsky and
Duncan Mathewson. and district
administrators led by Acevedo.
Earlier in the Tuesday board
meeting. Dick proposed getting
rid of all administrative supple-
ments, with the exception of a
longevity supplement, and made
no mention of a salary increase, a
suggestion that prompted heated
responses from administrators.
"In all my 37 years that I've
been here at Monroe County, I've
never felt as disrespected, as hurt
as I do now," Assessment and
Accountability Director Bruce
King said.
As Mathewson asked admin-
istrators not to interpret the
board's attempt to trim the budg-
et as a sign of disrespect, King
stormed out of the room.
Board members never voted
on Dick's proposal.


The Web problem apparently
was just a caching problem.
According to county technical
staff, the company that hosts the
county site specializes in govern-
ment sites. Some mix-up with
servers redirected Monroe
County users to Davie, and on
one occasion during the day, to
Carlisle, Mass.
The problem seemed to be
ironed out Friday and county
staffers said they were confident
it wouldn't happen again.

Bluster can't hide

broken pay system

It's taken more than two years, lots of wailing and gnashing
of teeth, but finally there may be clarity and closure coming on
the issue of supplemental pay in the Monroe County School
District.
Two outside consultants and a critical audit from the state
have targeted Monroe's crazy-quilt pay structure for badly
needed reform.
But for two years, fixing the problems has evoked the most
amazing bout of trench warfare witnessed in recent memory.
The latest display of professional conduct unbecoming took
place Tuesday when one of the district's top administrators
lashed out at the School Board.
Bruce King, a veteran coach, teacher, principal and now in
charge of school assessment, actually stormed out of the public
meeting after giving a verbal dressing down aimed at board
member John Dick, who has been pressing for a more transpar-
ent pay system.
When board member Duncan Mathewson tried to calm down
the blustering King, the 37-year school veteran didn't even let
Mathewson finish before leaving the room, adding this parting
shot: "In all my 37 years that I've been here ... I've never felt
as disrespected, as hurt as I do now."
Lest King kill the messenger, let's refresh public memory on
this issue of supplementals.
The Monroe County School District spends $1.8 million on
supplemental pay.
That's in a system with fewer than 9,000 students.
Broward County schools spend $43,000 on supplemental
pay. This in a system with 266,000 students.
In March of 2006, consultant Evergreen Solutions delivered
a scathing review of Monroe pay schedules, noting that the dis-
trict "does not have a well-structured, easy to manage classifi-
cation system for jobs ... and salary supplements should have
defined and measurable basis for disbursement."
Dick had proposed a more transparent system, but never got
to describe or defend his proposal on Tuesday.
After the blowup, followed by a break, the superintendent
came back and asked the board to let him return with a revised
pay plan, one that will convert some supplements into regular
pay for well-defined job duties.
That's the way it should have been all along.
What a-shame it's taken so long - and triggered such bad
feelings and public displays - to address what outside experts
have universally declared a poor system for rewarding per-
formance.
Lost in the hoo-hah was Dick's idea to reward longevity
along with advanced degrees or specialized training.
Too bad, because King could have qualified under both of
those criteria.

Cruise line ruins Key West sunset


EDITOR:
Was it only me, my wife and the rest of the
1,500 or so onlookers that stayed on the water's
edge at Mallory Square to catch sight of Key
West's famed sunset that were stupid on a recent
Friday evening, or was it the stupid ship's pilot
or the stupid captain of the Enchantment of the
Seas cruise ship that spoiled it for us on shore
when he decided to depart from the dock and
spoil a special occasion for the rest of us?
Approximately 15 minutes before sunset, the
Enchantment of the Seas pulled anchor and
backed right across the viewing path of all those
that had come to marvel at what Key West so
often brags about and bases a lot of its tourist
revenue on. What a disappointment for all of us
on shore.
The sun was still high sky when some fool
on board decided to give the order to get the
cruise ship underway. By the time he was in for-
ward gear and out of the way, the sun was gone
and the booing began by nearly all 1,500 unhap-


py sightseers back on shore.
, I was there to film the spectacular sunset for
television viewers across Canada and the north-
ern United States as part of my business. Others
were there just to enjoy the moment, which for
many would have been a once-in-a-lifetime
experience.
These days, with economic woes affecting us
all, it's amazing that a few fools on a big boat
can spoil it for so many. If Key West cares so
much about tourism, this is a pretty stupid way
to show it. Checking with some of the local ven-
dors working the square, 1 learned that this
seems to be a common occurrence for this par-
ticular cruise ship.
He had the entire Gulf to watch the sunset.
We were confined to the Square but were also
spending our money there. That was my last trip
to Key West for the view of a sunset and proba-
bly for many others.

Smoke-free initiatives starting to take hold


EDITOR:
Congratulations to the Florida Keys Area
Health Education Center, the Coalition for Green
Key West and the BottleCap Lounge in Key
West for their quest to make Monroe County
smoke-free. During the past few weeks, it has
been great to witness these organizations and
businesses take a lead on the tobacco cessation
and prevention fronts to benefit the health and
well-being of the entire community.
As the Health Education Center continued to
draw smokers into its Quit Smoking Now pro-
gram last week - more than 200 smokers are
already enrolled in the program - the Coalition
for Green Key West declared war on cigarette lit-
ter and the owners of the BottleCap Lounge vol-
unteered to go smoke-free indoors.
At the same time, the Monroe County Health
Department identified five individuals to help
promote and administer our community-based
tobacco plan.
The department's new tobacco staff plans to
partner with county and city governments,
schools, nonprofits, businesses and others to help
effect change in tobacco use countywide.
Some of our new staffers will partner with
schools and youth organizations to establish and

Rally the troops to save the Overseas


EDITOR:
Well, Here we go again. The
Overseas Lounge in Marathon,
the oldest and favorite watering
hole in Marathon and blue-plate
haven for nearly 60 years, as
well as unofficial hurricane shel-
ter for Boot Key Harbor
dwellers, free Sunday buffet for
hungry homeless folks, mecca
for local musical talent and
home to several rental tenants
who work and live around and
above this homey tavern, is
being pressured by the deceased
property owner's estate that
recently called in a loan to the
tune of $143,000.
The owners, Roy and Bev
Dickens, who have given so
much to the community over the
years, are suddenly over a barrel,
with the estate telling them in no
uncertain terms to pay up before
Feb. 25 or vacate the premises
by Feb. 27. Everyone who
works, lives, eats, plays music
and rides out storms there will
be stranded unless the remainder
of the loan can be paid off.
The estate is rushing to com-
plete this underhanded transac-
tion, knowing full well that if the
liquor-license loan is paid off,
they will never be able to get
their hands on the property due
to the fact that the business own-
ers will then have an ironclad
10-year lease.
If this sort of thing enrages
you as much as it does me, the
thing to do is rally the people.


That is what we hope to do by
spreading the details of this
injustice to the community. This
is not an enormous amount of
money: it can be raised, but we
only have a little over a week to
get it done.
The amazing thing about peo-
ple who care is our ability to.
motivate our energies for what is
right. If you care about the arts,
history, humanity and the com-
munity, this is your opportunity
to act on its behalf. If you can
afford to make a loan or dona-
tion to preserve this precious
piece of history and its service to
the Keys, please contact me at
(941) 237-1383.

Bailey's Cream or ice cream


at this Frosty's outpost?


The highway billboard that reads "Cabots"
will soon be replaced by another reading
"Frosty's."
Ed Frost, founding publisher of the
Marathon Week/v and previously a radio sta-
tion general manager, is the new leaseholder
for the waterfront restaurant and bar at the
Marathon Boatyard and Marina.
All references to Cay Clubs have disap-
peared just about everywhere up and down
the Keys. And soon, even the "Cabots" name
- which predates Cay Clubs - will be one
for the history books.
Frost said he canvassed Marathon businesses
and tested some names for the restaurant and
bar, figuring he needed to change the name.
Some might wonder how a waterfront
restaurant in the Middle Keys with a marina
and glorious sunsets would get a decidedly
northern-sounding naune like Frosty's, but it
helps to know that Frost has previously run
restaurants in Minneapolis and Hallandale.
1 told Ed he ought to at least offer a root
beer float on his dessert menu
with a name like Frosty's. espe-
cially for us older folks who
fondly remember A&W Root
Beer and Dairy Queen and similar
regional fast-food chains from our
youth.
As it turns out. Frost hopes to
appeal to a mix of young and old
in his remake of the place, includ-
ing music aimed at a "snappy. fun
crowd."
Right now, his focus is getting '

We see gas taxes are back on the County

Commissioner Sylvia Murphy authored the
version coming before the board.

gasoline purchases.
And she expressed concern about delays in
needed road work as a result of the state's
overall budget crunch and slowdown in sales
tax revenues.
That's the trickle-down affect of Florida's
dependence on big-spending
tourists keeping the state's coffers
growing.
Another proposal for raising the
local taxes comes from

Gutsy move for Murphy, who faces a pri-
mary battle against Gary Bauman, another
Republican, in the fall. Bauman serves on
the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment

State Rep. Ron Saunders, a Democrat, has
b-en leery of talk about the local-option
sales tax, especially as he tries to maneuver
for state authorization to bond out the
Keyswide sewer projects.
He's told reporters he'd rather get the state
to authorize the bonds first, press for the
state's promised help. and then talk about
any sales tax initiative.
Given the current state of the economy,
both nationally and particularly in Florida,
we think it's very risky for any elected offi-
cial to get too far out a limb on taxes.
Let's see what happens Wednesday when
push comes to shove at the County
Commission meeting in Key Largo.

Penny-tax back for talks


By ALYSON CREAN
acreain@kcynoter.com

Adding a penny to Monroe
County's 7.5-cent sales tax
could raise enough money to
pay for what's left of sewering
the Keys, according to Monroe
County Commissioner George
Neugent. That's why he'll ask
his fellow commissioners their
views on imposing such a new
tax when ' the commission
meets Wednesday at 9 a.m. at
the Key Largo library.
S"We're about to go through
a second year without any out-
side funding," Neugent told the
Keynoter, "and the 2010 dead-
line for finishing these sewers


is right around the corner. At
the very least, we need to look
into this."
The state-mandated sewer
systems need a cash infusion of
more than $300 million,
according to estimates by local
officials. Gov. Charlie Crist
released his recommended
state budget Jan. 31, which
includes $5 million for county
sewers.
Last year, the governor's
budget recommended $20 mil-
lion, which was cut to zero by
the Legislature.
Neugent first broached the
idea of a 1-cent sales tax for

sewers in July, but state Rep.
Ron Saunders warned the com-
mission that it might muddy
the water while he's trying to
get more state funding for Keys
sewers. Friday, Saunders said
he would want to see the pro-
posal go to Tallahassee only as
part of a larger plan.
"1 want to make sure that it's
part of a total funding package
rather than a stand-alone
request," Saunders said. "1
don't think you can approach
this piecemeal. Until we know
what the state is willing to
come up with in the short term,
1 just want to be sure we don't
let the state off the hook."
Saunders has been looking
into ways to get the state to
bond the money needed to fin-
ish the sewers.
"There's some question as
to who's actually going to pay
that bond back anyway,"
Neugent pointed out. A 1-cent
addition to the sales tax in the
Keys "would give a proposed
revenue source to deal with
this."
If the commission gets
behind the idea, there's still a
long process before a new tax
would be imposed. Saunders
would have to introduce a bill
to the Legislature when the ses-
sion begins in March. If
approved at that level, the tax
would still need to go before
Keys voters for approval.


Groups to fire refuge


an earful on burn


By PAMELA J. SUAREZ


Local activists will state their
case against an upcoming pre-
scribed burn at the National Key
Deer Refuge during a face-to-
face meeting with federal offi-
cials next week on Big Pine Key.
At issue is whether burning a
30-acre parcel on the island's
north side is an appropriate way
to create healthy habitat for
endangered Lower Keys marsh
rabbits.
Last month, four organiza-
tions - Last Stand, the Big Pine
Key Civic Association, the Key
Deer Protection Alliance and the
Pine Acres Conservation
Association - obtained legal
assistance from the Everglades
Law Center to halt the burn,
which the U.S. Fish & Wildlife
Service planned to carry out this
month, weather permitting.
The Everglades Law Center is
a nonprofit firm specializing in
land-use and environmental
issues.
Jason Totoiu. staff counsel.
said he and the activists will meet
Wednesday afternoon with
refuge staff and personnel from
Fish & Wildlife's regulatory
office in Vero Beach. The meet-
ing is not open to the public, and
the location on Big Pine has not
yet been determined.


"We feel refuge staff assumes
the historic condition of the area
is one of open grasslands and that
burning this area would return the
site to this condition," Totoiu
said. "However, there was wide-
spread cutting and burning of
buttonwood on Big Pine for
decades, suggesting that the pres-
ence of open grasslands was the
result of man's impact on the
area.
Since Fish & Wildlife policy
mandates that the biological
integrity of the refuge be main-
tained, Totoiu said it should not
conduct a burn that would alter
the parcel from its historic condi-
tion as a buttonwood-dominated
salt marsh. He contends that
doing so would only restore "the
artificial condition created by the
charcoal industry and others."
Totoiu said he and the activists
are not opposed to all burning on
refuge lands - only to this par-
ticular bum.
Refuge Manager Anne
Morkill said she is looking for-
ward to the meeting because it
will give the refuge an opportuni-
ty to address the activists' policy
questions, and she said the bum
has been temporarily postponed.
"The burn will not happen
until after the meeting." Morkill
said.

DCA now gets look at waterfront law


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


An ordinance originally writ-
ten to protect commercial fishing
and public access to the water is
on its way to Tallahassee - and
some of the people who pushed
to get it written in the first place
hope the state rejects it.
The County Commission
passed the working-waterfront
,law 1eb. 4. Now, it must go to the
state Department of Comlmunlity
Affairs before it can be enacted.
But some - including County
Commissioner George Neugent -
hope DCA throws it out because
of last-minute additions made to
it by attorneys for two groups of
Stock Island landowners.
Neugent and then-Planning
Commissioner Sherry Popham
took the lead in drafting the ordi-
nance, which would amend the
county's comprehensive plan.
Now both want to see the state
scrap it.
Popham, angered by the blan-
ket changes accepted by the com-
mission, not only lambasted the
changes, but resigned her
appointed office in protest the
day after the County
Commission's vote.
Commissioners Sonny
McCoy, Mario Di Gennaro and
Dixie Spehar voted to integrate
all the changes proposed by
David Paul Horan, who repre-


sented New Stock Island
Properties, and by Jerry
Coleman, who represents
Robbie's Marina. Neugent and
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
voted against it.
The attorneys brought forth
the changes right before the vote,
giving the commissioners little or
no time to read what they actual-
ly said.
Popham. said one of her
biggest c~lncicm is the deletion of
the concept of "no net los'," for
maritime uses.
"I have never been naive
enough to believe that the proper-
ty owners would independently
take measures to preserve the
working waterfront out of the
goodness of their hearts." she
said.
Many who have voiced frus-
tration at the changes in the ordi-
nance oppose Coleman's premise
that since the fishing industry is
teetering on the brink of extinc-
tion. anyway, the county proba-
bly shouldn't pass laws requiring
landowners to protect existing
commercial fishing uses.
"Traps are going to be reduced
to zero," Coleman told the com-
mission during the Feb. 4 meet-
ing.
In data and analysis he used to
support his client's changes to the
proposed ordinance, Coleman

Ethics Commission:
No Spehar conflict

The Florida Commission on
Ethics ruled Friday that County
Commissioner Dixie Spehar had
no reason to recuse herself from
voting on an ordinance aimed at
protecting the working water-
front.
Geiger Key resident Paul
Caruso filed a complaint
Monday with the Ethics
Commission, speculating that
because Spehar lives on a boat
moored at a Stock Island marina
and the proposed ordinance
addresses the Stock Island
waterfront, her vote might be
manipulated by her landlords.

not eliminate Spehar's use of her
boat slip and therefore the vote
would not affect her.
"What if the developers came
to her and told her that if she
does not vote in favor of the leg-
islation, that they will evict
her?" Caruso posed in his com-
plaint.
Caruso also presented the
issue at a Feb. 4 public hearing
for the ordinance.
The letter from the Ethics
Commission does not address
Caruso's other complaint, that
Spehar uses her maiden name
when paying taxes on her live-
aboard. Spehar says she uses the
name McCarty in her private
business but has retained the
name Spehar in her public office
since that is the name people
recognize. Spehar divorced in
2005.


says "public lodging is an integral
component of the recreational
and commercial working water-
front... Charter boats, dive boats,
and commercial fishing boats
need customers: portside lodging
puts those customers at the
docks."
Coleman cites other redevel-


oped waterfronts, noting that
hotels are a major component of
redevelopment, though the origi-
nal ordinance did not include a
means of allowing working-
waterfront landowners to change
the use to hotels.
*However, the changes allow
just that.


In December, DCA issued a
series of objections to the ordi-
nance as it was originally crafted.
Many had to do with vague lan-
guage, but DCA also questioned
the inclusion of hotels in a move
aimed at preserve the working
waterfront.

Candidate Ward
addresses group

The next general mem-
bership meeting of the Big
Pine Key Civic Association
will feature an address from
Dennis Ward, recently
declared Democratic candi-
date for Monroe County


Reckwerdt says
its supporters
are 'elitist'
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.con

Islamorada will not issue $115
million in bonds to pay for a cen-
tralized wastewater system.
At its meeting Thursday, the
Village Council rejected such a
recommendation from the vil-
lage's Water 0-Ilitiy imlprove-
m, nL committee.
Keys governments are under
state order to have centralized
sewer systems in place by 2010.
Committee Chairman David
Makepeace said building the cen-
tralized system could help hotel
and condominium owners avoid
spending hundreds of thousands
of dollars to make individual
treatment plants comply with
state standards.
With a master plan and fund-
ing in place, treatment-plant own-
ers and homeowners "might be
able to receive some kind of relief
and grace period from the state
for coming into compliance with
the 2010 standards," Makepeace
said.
But Mayor Dave Boerer said
that to repay a bond issue,
Islamorada would have to charge
residents much more than the $75
monthly sewer fee suggested by


the committee.
Boemer said Finance Director
Alice Filinovich researched the
issue and told him residents in
single-family homes could be
charged as much as $92 a month
for 30 years, and that owners of
hotels and condominium com-
plexes could pay thousands per
month.
Boemer said that fee doesn't
include operation a~n-d a4tnte-
n:nc>, Alnarges, which he said
could reach an average of $100
per month by 2010.
Several other members of the
committee spoke in favor of a
bond issue, and said that repay-
ment might be tough on citizens,
but that state and government
funding is unlikely and
Islamorada needs to take respon-
sibility for the 2010 deadline.
The issue quickly turned polit-
ical when former Mayor Bob
Johnson asked the council to let
the public vote on a bond issue
before approving it.
Vice Mayor Cathi Hill said
residents have an indirect vote on
the issue in the upcoming Village
Council election.
"Your referendum on whether
or not you want to shoulder this
burden is March 11." she said.
Council candidate and Water
Quality Advisory Committee
member Jim Rhyne said that
without bonding to fund con-

struction, the council is putting
residents at risk of being penal-
ized by the state.
"To not do this, you are gam-
bling on the part of every home-
owner, you are gambling on the
part of every package plant
owner, and you are gambling
with the state of Florida," Rhyne
said, adding, "If we're not a [state
or federal funding] priority now, I
highly doubt we'll becomelcin--4
the nest -to years."
SCouncil candidate Rod
Halenza called the impending
council vote a "defining moment
in the history of Islamorada."
He said the repayment fees
would "devastate the working
class of Islamorada," and could
permanently change the village
demographic.
Councilman Michael
Reckwerdt, who is seeking re-
election, blasted those who spoke
in favor of a bond issue. He said
supporters have an "elitist atti-
tude," aid a vision of Islamorada
as an exclusively wealthy
"utopia" like Sanibel Island or
Key Biscayne.
Boerer said those who spoke
in favor of using bond funds earn
much more than $100,000 a year.
"To spend a couple hundred a
month just to flush your toilet,
people are going to say forget it,
guys, I'm out of here," he told
The Reporter Friday. "To be hon-
est with you, it may run me out of
town, too. I'm that close."

City OKs extra money for GIS


Extra cost
is to guide
sewer system
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon City Council,
meeting in regular session
Tuesday, took the following
actions:
+ Approved a resolution
authorizing a change order to
the city's sewer engineering
contract to provide global posi-
tioning system and geographic
information system data collec-
tion, input and analysis for
sewer and stormwater work.
The change order is not to
exceed $881,935.
It was outlined at the meet-
ing that when complete, the
sewer system will be an asset
with more than $100 million
with some 88 miles of infra-
structure. Staff explained to
council the long-term savings
associated with maintaining the
system GIS mapping will pro-
vide.
Councilman Mike Cinque
said he feels the plan is good
but was hesitant to move for-
ward without a commitment to
sewering the entire city.
Weiler Engineering Corp.
engineer Mike Hatfield
explained that the fee for the
system is based on construction,
meaning the city will be
charged only for work complet-
ed. Weiler designed the sewer
plans.
Councilman Don Vasil said
while he's impressed with the
system, "at this point in time I
don't think we're ready to com-
mit these dollars." He recom-
mended putting the project out
to bid.
Community Services
Director Susie Thomas said she
feels doing so "would be an
exercise in futility and I don't
think we're going to get a better
price."
+ Approved a resolution
declaring the city's intent to
purchase the Little Venice

wastewater collection, trans-
mission, treatment and disposal
systems from the Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority. The pur-
chase price will be the debt
owed on the system by the
FKAA, the dollar figure for
which wasn't immediately.
The resolution states the city
plans to expand the plant to


include the balance of service
area 5, which is 60th Street to
Vaca Cut.
+ Approved a resolution
supporting the continuing
efforts of Fair Insurance Rates
in Monroe to reduce 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 its effort to keep
those rates in place. The state
Legislature will consider insur-
ance issues in its upcoming ses-
sion.
+ Approved a resolution
adopting the City of Marathon
Marina Americans with
Disabilities Act transition plan.
The resolution requests $10,000
be allocated from the 2007-08


capital fund to begin necessary
improvements.
+ Approved the purchase of
a 2008 Pierce tanker pumper for
the fire department in an
amount not to exceed $298,742.
The resolution says the pres-
ent tanker is more than 20 years
old and costs to repair the vehi-
cle are mounting. It was sched-
uled to be replaced this year and
will be sold through public bid.

Feagin resigns,
heads to Navy
in Key West
By RYAN.McCARTHY
nrmccarlhy@kcynoter.com

Clarence Feagin has official-
ly left his position as the city of
Marathon's planning director
after less than three months on
the job.
According to Naval Air
Station Key West spokesman
Jim Brooks, Feagin is being
hired by Naval Facilities
Engineering Command at the
base. It is headquartered in
Washington, D.C., but has a
branch in Key West with a sepa-
rate chain of command from the
NAS.
Feagin did not return repeat-
ed calls for comment and terms
of his contract with the Navy
were unavailable at press time.
City Human Resources
Director Susan Funk said Feagin
is leaving toward the end of
February or beginning of March.
She said she is in the process of
advertising the position.
Marathon has had a difficult
time keeping planning directors.
Feagin took over for prede-
cessor Fred Gross Nov. 19, who
spent little more than a year on
the job before retiring.
Gross took over for Gail
Kenson, who left for the same
position with the city of Key
West and was recently hired by
the Navy, as well.
The position of planning
director is listed on the city's
Web site. The city is also seeking
a planner, as well, since
Jacqulyn Walters abandoned that
post.
Rumors leaked earlier this
month Feagin had been offered a
higher salary and more favorable
living situation by the Navy.
He was hired by Marathon
the city at $72.000 per year.
Feagin worked with the state
Department of Environmental
Protection and was a senior
planner for Monroe County prior
to accepting the director position
with Marathon.

Alexander Chavez, 25, is

when he saw Chavez riding

he was booked.

her of his decision before the

"I know he was considering it
for a long time. I thought it was
up to him to decide what was
best for himself and the city,"
n City Tempest said. "He precluded any
ay City further discussion and it was get-

s Puto narrowly escaped with
his job during an August 2007
meeting to review the renewal of
?lry contracts in excess of $100.000.
Stole The vote was 3-2, with Cinque
and Councilman Don Vasil vot-
ing not to renew Puto's contract.
an was Council voiced concerns with
when he Puto's managerial style at that
vo gold meeting and has continued to


monitor his progress closely
since. Tempest drafted goals she
wanted Puto to complete within
30, 60, 90 and 120 days.
"I sensed that Mike perceived
he did not have-the support of
council and I respect his decision
to resign rather than continue a
drawn out evaluation process,"
Vasil said. "He is too big an asset
to leave Marathon city govern-
ment in totality and I will again
suggest that whoever his succes-
sor may be, we find a place for
him."
Puto did not address his
future with the city, but
acknowledged he embraces his
unofficial "Mr. Marathon" sta-
tus. He said only "1 think the
time has come for a change" and
offered to stay on until a suitable
interim of replacement is found.
Puto did not immediately
return calls for comment by
press time.
Tempest said in looking for
Puto's replacement she would
like a candidate experienced in
budgets and contracts, prefer-
ably one from the Keys.
"1 want someone on top of
that so it's not us trying to do it


all the time. The city manager
needs to be heavily involved in
those kinds of things," she said.
"We'll hire the best manager we
can and I hope locally."
Vasil, who has consistently
pursued reducing spending since
his election, said he would like a
manager with good business
sense.
Puto was earning an annual


salary of $110,113 at the time of
his resignation. As of Friday
afternoon, there was no listing
for his position on the city's Web
site.
On Feb. 26, council will have
a special meeting to discuss city-
manager recruitment and transi-
tion strategy. It will begin at 5

Keys' college enrollment increasing

Jill Landesberg-Boyle is bracing
staff for another possible budget
cut of about 4 percent when the
Legislature meets in March,
advertising the benefits of study-

"You have to invest in market-

Stamats Higher Education
Marketing, which developed an
overall message: stress location,
as no other college in the nation
can offer a comparable island
lifestyle.
Landesberg-Boyle said the
college is spending $35,000 a
year on distributing class sched-
ules that aren't luring in enough
new students.
So this week, student models
posed for photos and a video
taken by Michael Marrera at
locations such as the Dolphin
Research Center on Grassy Key
and Sombrero Resort and
Lighthouse Museum in
Marathon.
The photos will be uploaded
on the college's Web site,
brochures and viewbooks by
March, L.ii~,lcbl- -Boyle said.
The FKCC emblem will also
change to a green palm tree.
The college has paid Stamats
$49,000 to date, college spokes-
woman Lydia Estenoz said.
Video footage and photos have
come to about $31,000, totaling
about $80,000 spent on advertis-
ing so far.


"We're going to have to tight-
en our straps, no question about
it." Landesberg-Boyle said. "We
are considering a hiring freeze
and we don't have enough staff
members to do all of the wonder-


ful initiatives we want to do."
She said a grant-writing posi-
tion is likely to be exempt from a
hiring freeze, based on adminis-
trators describing that as an
essential tool to increase revenue.

Michael
Marrera took

strategy.

Landesberg-Boyle said she's
posting the job.
So far, marketing strategies
have paid off, according to
Landesberg-Boyle.
By the time classes start late in
the spring semester, new offer-
ings such as a scuba class and one
for emergency medical services
will bring the college's head
count of full-time students an
increase of about 100 students,
she said.
Administrators are also
working on developing an artic-
ulation agreement with Ross
Medical Educational Center in
West Palm Beach in an effort to
establish a new nursing pro-
gram for students interested in
becoming a certified nursing
assistant.
Ross sends students to study
in Saint Kitts and Nevis in the
West Indies. If the agreement
passes, students could spend
their summers at one of FKCC's
campuses in Stock Island,
Marathon or Tavemier.
Nursing director Michael
Tomak said 31 nursing students
will graduate this year to
become registered nurses, com-
pared to 23 last year.
"Not everyone is cut out to
be a registered nurse right off
the bat," he said.
Promoting enrollment to resi-
dents of Bahama Village was also
recently discussed with the
Ministerial Alliance, Landesberg-
Boyle said.

Bruno case changes venue


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


A former county commission-
er's aide probably won't have her
day in court for another year, but
her sexual-harassment lawsuit
has been moved from Monroe
County Circuit Court to federal
court.
In December, Celeste Bruno
filed a civil complaint against
Monroe County alleging six
counts of harassment by Mayor
Sonny McCoy.
Initially, Bruno filed a com-
plaint with the U.S. Equal


V')'�. ~


Employment Opportunity Com-
mission. The October 2006 com-
plaint alleged McCoy provided a
hostile work environment and that
he retaliated against her when she
rebuffed his sexual advances.
Though an EEOC investigator
found her complaint to be valid.
the commission later told County
Attorney Suzanne Hutton it would
not pursue the matter.
Bruno worked for McCoy for
more than a year. During that
time, the suit alleges, McCoy
relayed a lifetime of sexual

antics.
The complaint says sexual
comments were made "to her on
an almost daily basis. Bruno
rebuffed [McCoy's] unwelcome
advances, after which he retaliat-
ed against her by ridiculing her.
demeaning her work and margin-
alizing her role."
In addition, Bruno charges the
county with providing what she
felt was an unsafe work atmos-
phere in which she felt threat-
ened by a resident who came into
her office when she was working
as an aide to Commissioner
Dixie Spehar.
Because both Hutton and
Assistant Count), Attorney Bob
Shillinger are named in the civil
suit, the county has retained out-
side council, Shillinger said.
Bruno has demanded a jury
trial; she's seeking damages,
attorneys' fees and remuneration
for other legal expenses. No dol-
lar figure is stated in the com-
plaint.
The case will be tried before
U.S. District Court Judge
Michael Moore, who is based in
Miami. According to a schedul-
ing order filed with the court.
discovery in the case should be
complete by October. Court-
ordered mediation should be
completed by November and a
trial will be set some time in
January 2009.

Library lease likely to be extended


It would assure
2 more years
for Big Pine Key
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Big Pine Key residents wor-
ried they might lose their
branch of the Monroe County
library should have their fears
allayed next week when the
County Commission approves a
three-year extension on space at
the Winn-Dixie Plaza.
The commission convenes at
9 a.m. Wednesday at the Key
Largo library. The meeting will
be broadcast live on Comcast
Channel 76 and on the county's
Web site.
Rumors the small storefront
branch might close started
swirling as county officials


looked for ways to shave $4
million off the current year's
operating budget. However,
Community Services Director
Deb Barsell has assured resi-
dents the cutbacks are limited
so far to reducing hours at many
of the library branches.
Hours at the Big Pine branch
will not be cut, she said,
because that office is already
closed two days a week.
The lease extension is
expected to be approved with-
out discussion in the commis-
sion's bulk items. It will cost
$91.000 over the three years.
The lease was first drafted in
2003 for five years with a
clause allowing for a three-year
extension.
Proposed cutbacks at county
libraries have been a rallying
point for residents up and down

Horan enters race

Marathon resident Bob
Horan, who's run for sheriff
and state House several times
on the platform of legalizing
marijuana, has filed to run for
sheriff again this year.
The nonaffiliated candidate
faces at least one familiar face
in Phil Mandina, a Republican
attorney who says he's running
though he hasn't officially
filed. They were among candi-


dates in a previous race for
sheriff.
Also in the running to take
the place of Rick Roth, who's
retiring after nearly 20 years in
the position, are Sheriff's
Office Capt. Bob Peryam, run-
ning as a Democrat: and
Cudjoe Key resident Sandra
Downs, whose family owns a
tree-trimming company and
who, like Horan, is running
nonaffiliated.
Horan works as a cook at
Leigh Ann's Coffee House in
Marathon.

want to lose the vital service.
County officials, however, say
there are some tough choices

tions.

Applications close for administrator


Dozens seek
top position
in government
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Nearly three dozen people
have submitted resumes seeking
Monroe County's top job; the job
posting closed Friday.
Now acting County
Administrator Debbie Frederick
is asking the County Commission
how it wants to go about culling
the list.
The commission meets
Wednesday at the Key Largo
library starting at 9 a.m.
"There are quite a few quali-
fied applicants," Frederick said.
"I'll be bringing this up during
my report to the commission to
get guidance from them as to how
to-proceed."


The job has been open since
early December when the County
Commission ended its contract
with Tom Willi, who had held the
job for three years. Though he
was dismissed without cause,
some commissioners blamed him
with the precarious state of the
county budget.
Willi walked away with
$282,000 in severance pay. The
salary being offered for his
replacement is based on experi-
ence but will likely range some-
where between $107,000 and
$150,000 a year.
Frederick said the county has
received 36 applications.
However, one applicant,
Kathleen Monahan from
Virginia, has withdrawn.
Frederick has been in charge
since Willi left and is sharing
some of the duties with Reggie
Paros, the county's director of


housing and community develop-
ment.
Frederick has not expressed
interest in filling the position long
term, but Paros has officially
applied. He's worked for Monroe'
County for 30 years, 20 of them
in senior management.
Kevin Madok, assistant finan-
cial director for the County
Clerk's Office, has also applied.
He's worked for the county since
2004.
There was some speculation
whether Marathon City Manager
Mike Puto would apply for the
job. Puto resigned Tuesday,
though he has agreed to remain
until the City Council can find a
replacement.
The County Commission has
historically given points to appli-
cants with experience in Florida,
especially since Monroe County
must work closely with state
agencies. The Keys are designat-
ed an Area of State Critical


Concern, which means the state
Department of Community
Affairs oversees most develop-
ment decisions in the county.
A good many of the job candi-
dates hold similar positions as
either county administrators or
city managers elsewhere. One
applicant, Kenneth R. Fields, is a


Seminole tribal manager.
If there were an award for the
most exotic current job, it would
likely go to W.D. Higginbotham
Jr. who, since November, has
served as a financial advisor for
the U.S. government in Baghdad
as part of the Iraq Local
Governance Program.

Palm trees fall to chopping block


By KAREN QUIST
kquist@keynoter.com

Crews removing invasive
species from Bahia Honda State
Park removed 10 coconut palms,
a move that has upset some
Lower Keys residents who fear
more will be cut down.
Coconut palms are on the
state's list of exotic species, said


Jessica Kemper, information
director for the Florida Park
Services, but because they are not
Category 1 or 11 invasives - the
nonnative species most damaging
to the Keys' fragile ecosystem -
the crews didn't set out to remove
the 25- to 30-foot-tall palms.
The coconut palms were not


the specific target, but since they
had the resources, the time and
the money to do so, they removed
them," Kemper said.
Kemper said Bureau of
Invasive Plant Management
crews were in the second phase of
a two-phase eradication program
in the Lower Keys park. She said
the bureau funded the 138-acre
project, using grant money set
aside by the Department of
Environmental Protection, to
remove exotics from the Keys'


nine state parks.
In phase one, Kemper said,
crews scan parks for species to be
removed and then take out the
most invasive ones, Brazilian
pepper, for example. During the
second phase, crews remove
regrowth of the original species
and take out other exotic species
when possible.
Kemper said the palms were
not in primary visitor areas. Bahia
Honda has dozens of towering
palms, particularly along the old


bridge and nearby beaches.
Big Pine Key photographer
Paula Cannon said she's heard
from many residents who are
concerned the state will remove
more of the trees.
"As of right now, we don't
have any plans to do mass
removal," Kemper said. "But
they are exotics, and when we
have a project like this going on,
there's a possibility that they're
going to be removed."


Boy Scout camp upgrades on tap


By ALYSON CREAN
ac rean6 key note r.comn


It may look like an idyllic
blast from the 1950s past, but the
owner of the 10-acre Camp
Sawyer on West Summerland
Key says it's time for a facelift.
The Monroe County Planning
Commission, when it convenes
Tuesday, will consider a request
to upgrade the facility, a proposal
that includes the demolition of
three buildings.
S The South Florida Counsel of


the Boy Scouts of America seeks
approval to take out the buildings
and, in their place, build a new
administration building with
offices, a dining hall and trading
post. According to the proposal,
the revamped camp would
include 10-room counselors' resi-
dence and two affordable single-
family units that would house
camp security guards and person-
nel.
Plans also include an
amphitheater, tiki huts and a soft-
ball field. A new sewer plant for
the proposed upgraded camp has
already been approved by the
state Department of Health.
The Boy Scouts have owned
the property since 1956, when it
was signed over by the county.
and the deed restricts the use of
the waterfront parcel. If the land
is ever used for anything other
than a Boy Scout camp, it would
revert back to county ownership.
Plans also include a new gated
entrance, according to a county


staff memo authored by planner
Joseph Haberman. The new entry
would consist of two 25-foot
towers connected by crossbars
and signage. To get that
approved, the developer is asking
for a waiver of the county's set-
back requirements.
The Craig Co. in Key West is
developing the project for the
Boy Scouts. According to Craig
Co. Vice President Barbara
Mitchell, the camp was severely
damaged during Hurricane
Wilma in 2005.
The developer is asking for
phased removal and replacement
of the structures, a plan expected
to stretch out over four years.
According to county records,
the assessed value of the parcel
with existing buildings is $3.8
million and it is tax exempt.
The Planning Commission
meets at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the
Marathon Government Center.
The meeting will be televised live
on Comcast Channel 76 and on
the county's Web site.

Coral plan raises questions


New proposal
to get airing
Tuesday in Keys
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter rcom

People who make their liv-
ing on Florida Keys waters
want to know more about a
federal proposal to protect
habitat for threatened staghorn
and elkorn corals.
"I know a lot of people are
anxious, probably more than
they need to be," said Ken
Nedimyer, a Tavernier coral
and live-rock expert. "But
there are a lot of ambiguities
[in the proposal] that need to
be resolved."
An Endangered Species Act
specialist with the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration is tentatively
scheduled to speak to the
Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary Advisory Committee
at its Tuesday meeting in
Marathon.
Because NOAA announced
a plan to pursue "critical habi-
tat" designation for staghorn
and elkhorn coral only last
week, the topic was not on the
original agenda for the sanctu-
ary group.
"We're going to try to fit


him in after lunch," said
Nedimyer. a SAC member.
Todd Firm, also SAC mem-
ber and owner of Keys Diver in
Key Largo, said Keys corals
already are highly protected by
the Keys sanctuary.
"No habitat plan for the
corals should supercede the
National Marine Sanctuary
management plan already in
place." Firm said.
Commercial fishermen are
wary that habitat protections
could target waters lobster-trap
fishermen traditionally place
traplines.
"All industries affect the
habitat of Monroe County's
natural resources and the com-
mercial fishing industry only
commits a fraction of the
impacts to critical habitat,"
Scott Zimmerman. executive
director of the Florida Keys
Commercial Fisherman's
Association, said.
In drafting critical-habitat
rules, he said, the National
Marine Fisheries Service
should a clear message to the
commercial fishing industry
and other user groups in
regards to the permitting
requirements for the
'take/effect' on endangered
species of coral."
Staghorn and elkhorn
corals, among the most .spec-


tacular branching corals on the
Florida Keys reef tract, were
designated as protected species
under the Endangered Species
Act in May 2006. Large fields
of the corals have died or
shrunken considerably.
"Elkhorn and staghorn
corals - which grow only in
Florida, the Bahamas and
Caribbean - [are] being dam-
aged by sewer outfalls, agricul-
tural runoff, heavy use and
warming sea oceans," DeeVon
Quirolo of Reef Relief said
while the proposal was being
considered.
A series of federal hearings
to take public comments on the
designation includes a 7 p.m.
March 5 session at Marathon
Government Center, 2798
Overseas Highway.
The Sanctuary Advisory
Council meets in open session
Tuesday at the Marathon
Garden Club, mile marker 50
bayside.
Nedimyer said the Feb. 6
decision to pursue critical-
habitat designation "has noth-
ing astounding in there."
"What they've got to do
now is clearly identify specific
areas where these corals are. I
don't think they have a handle
on what's out there," Nedimyer
said.
A map issued as part of the
proposal was largely useless,
Nedimyer said.

Tougher shutter standards


By KYLE TEAL
ktlcal(?kcyinotcrco1ni

Hundreds of Keys residents
could be at risk of losing their
Citizens Property Insurance
Corp. windstorm insurance -
the state's last-resort insurance
for homeowners - if they don't
either upgrade or purchase hurri-
cane-resistant shutters.
A new regulation gives home-
owners with insurance policies
set at $750,000 or higher until
next year to have proper cover-
ings for every opening in their
home, said Christine Turner,
communications director of
Citizens.
"They are requiring that every
home, every opening, be covered
with some sort of shutter or pro-
tective covering." Key West City
Commissioner Teri Johnston
said. "If every opening is not cov-
ered, they will drop coverage by
January."
But what what qualifies as a
protective covering?
Turner said A-class shutters,
strongest on the market, do qual-
ify, but she's unsure if lower-
quality shutters called B-class
and C-class qualify. She said it


depends on what Florida
Building Code administrators
decide.
The Keys are listed in a "wind-
borne debris region," an area of
Florida that is hit with wind
speeds of 120 mph or higher dur-
ing hurricanes. Florida building
documents show Monroe County
in a 150 mph zone, along with
south Miami-Dade.
"It wasn't our idea," Turner
said of the new measure to
increase window protection. "It
was passed in the mitigation bill
during last year's Ilegislative]
regular session."
According to Turner, Keys res-
idents account for about 16,000
applicable policyholders with
$750,000 or above in insurance.
The Historical Architecture
Review Commission in Key West
advocates the preservation of his-
toric buildings and, in some
cases, encourages homeowners to
use wood shutters.
T-here are more than 2.500 his-
toric houses on the island, accord-
ing to Building Department Plans
Examiner Diane Silvia, and only
about 70 of those are outside Key


West's historic district.
"A lot of people are sort of
blowing this out of proportion,"
Silvia said, adding that HARC
"(has) a number of ways you can
be protected."
City Commissioner Clayton
Lopez said he's been concerned
about a potential conflict between
HARC regulations and insurance
demands.
"A large number of them take
place in our district," said the
District 6 commissioner, whose
district includes Bahama Village.
"I have serious concerns with the
HARC regulations."
Silvia said residents can use
detachable, aluminum shutters on
their homes, or "Z-bar style shut-
ters with vertical boards and a Z
shaped brace across them."
Key Wester Jim McAlhany
runs a business that installs shut-
ters for Keys residents.
He said he's unsure if wooden
shutters will meet state standards,
and he's been encouraging resi-
dents to put up shutters up to
receive credit for mitigating their
homes.
Citizens' Webs site says it pro-
vides insurance to more than 1.3
million Floridians.

High-definition
diagnostics now
at Tavemier site

"Which is better? One or 2?"
Those words have been com-
monplace at most vision clinics,
as the doctor flips through one
glass lens after another trying to
get just the right prescription.
Thanks to new state-of-the-art
equipment, patients at Landsaw
Eyecare in Tavemier no longer
have to endure that antiquated


and time-consuming process.
Landsaw Eyecare uses the
Marco High-Definition Vision
Diagnostic System with 3-D
Wave wavefront analyzer and
TRS electronic phoroptor.
That means vision can be
measured and diagnosed more
thoroughly, quickly and comfort-
ably than ever. Dr. Harry Landsaw
says. He says patients notice the
new equipment takes most of the
guesswork out of choosing pre-
scription lenses, making it a less


stressful experience with a better
outcome in vision.
The HD diagnostic system
allows an optometrist to achieve
the most accurate prescription for
eyeglasses or contact lenses that
often improve vision better than
20/20, Landsaw says. It can com-
pare a patient's current prescrip-
tion with his or her new prescrip-
tion instantly, as well as evaluate
a patient before and after lasik or
cataract surgery.

Locked-in prices a draw


As postage rises,
buyers snap up
Forever stamps
McClatchy Tribune

Consumers apparently still
believe a penny saved is a penny
earned, as many rushed this week
to buy Forever stamps that will
help them avoid a pending I-cent


rate hike in first-class postage.
The U.S. Postal Service
announced this week that the
price of mailing a standard letter
will rise from 41 to 42 cents
beginning May 12. But Forever
stamps - so named because
they are good indefinitely at the
price purchased, no matter how
much prices go up - allow
postal customers to lock in the


lower rate.
Rick Suarez, postmaster of
the main Fort Lauderdale post
office, said the stamps have been
a hit since they were introduced
last April.
"But they are extremely popu-
lar right now, with people buying
them in large quantities," he said.
"They are very pleased they
don't have to deal with a bunch


Much of Its about reuse
at the Mallory Gallery.

Mallory Gallery
Key West
"Baja" Bert Aardema
hopes to revitalize the Key
West art scene he treasures
with a multi-artist gallery on
Whitehead Street.
Mallory Gallery is a 22-
artist collection that features
what Aardema calls "the
Mallory Square gang."
Artists come in to the
shop near Petronia Street
daily to make the art, some
of which is made of what
many would consider trash.
The converted home features
a bathtub-sized swimming
pool surrounded by a garden
where the artists work.
Aardema says he and his
employees encourage
passersby to pick up a paint-
brush while they're shop-
ping. The tactic has been suc-
cessful, he says, with three
former vagrants now earning
a living selling their art. The
handmade art store recently
suffered a setback when city
officials said their sidewalk
and porch art displays violat-
ed code. But Aardema says
he hopes to push on with
decreased visibility.
'I believe in moving
things - [the art is] below
the suggested retail price and
we want action want it to be
a fun place to come," he
says. "I'm trying to bring
back the old Key West -
fun, funky and handmade."

Breakers returning to the Keys

But this group is pulling weeds, not partying


By RYAN McCARTHY
anccarthy@ keynoter.coin

Spring Break usually means
tropical destinations and a week
of partying before finals for col-
lege students across the countlrv.
One out of two isn't had for a
group of 15 Boston University
students that will spend a week
next month working with The
Nature Conservancy in Marathon
removing invasive plant species
from Keys' natural habitats.
The trip is sponsored by the
university's Alternative Spring
Break program, which offers 23
different trips to various locations
in the U.S. and Canada. Program
manager Jessica Taylor says the
trip to the Keys is always popular.
"Marathon is usually one of
the first trips to fill up because it's
the Florida Keys and not many
people gel to go, let alone drive
from Boston." Taylor said.
In fact, the program has
become so popular students were
actually camping out a full day
ahead of the Feb. 4 registration
date.
"Students decided to come
much earlier than we expected.
The first person was Itherel 3

a.m. on Sunday morning and we
had filled up the majority of our
spots by 5 p.m. before the Super
Bowl," Taylor said. A total of 320
people applied for 252 overall
available spots.
Taylor said the trips are low-
cost alternatives lor students who


want to do something different
than the traditional trek to
Cancun or the like. She says
many enjoy the experience so
much they continue to do it
throughout their college career.
"They want to do something
meaningful and a lot of people


don't know what they're getting
into. It impacts them and a lot of
people decide to do it again,"
Taylor said.
Lauren Brown. invasive-
species program coordinator at
the conservancy, says over the
years groups like the BU one
have been a tremendous help to
the organization.
"Over the past 10 years we've
had over 60 groups, and that's
been over 50.000 volunteer
hours. So they're a big help."
Brown said. "It's a nice alterna-
tive for people that don't want to
do the usual, in a nice place like
the Keys."
Brown said the-students will
be working alongside Conser-
vancy employees and put in a 40-
hour work week. They'll remove
such invasive species as Brazilian
pepper. Australian pine, seaside
mahoe and lead tree.
"We find the worst areas are in
subdivisions where people use
them for landscaping and they
creep out into the natural areas."
Brown said.

This time, no absinthe of malice


The green fairy

O h, the debauchery and
decadence. Wickedness,
self-indulgence, depravi-

Proper ladies doing improper
things. Men of stature twisted
into gyrating songsters.
No, the blame doesn't belong
at the feet of politicians. It's the
fault of la Fee Verte. the green
fairy. The green muse. The
queen of poisons.
Absinthe.
An army of Harvard MBAs
couldn't have done a better job
marketing absinthe than the late
19th century press. The drink
was portrayed as an addictive,
psychotropic agent. It was said
to cause promiscuous behavior.
depravity, even murder in the
case of a Swiss laborer who.
having spent a morning drinking
wine, brandy and liquor along
with 2 ounces of absinthe, killed
his wife and children (the press
put the entire blame on
absinthe).

Europe, especially France.
In 1874 the French con-
sumed about 700,000 liters
of absinthe (about
933,000 of today's 750
ml bottles). By the
end of the century
the figure was 2
million liters.
By 1910 the
French
poured 36
million liters
of absinthe into
their bodies (48 mil-


lion 750 ml bottles).
Viva la verte.
Bowing to pressure from tem-
perance groups and the wine and
whiskey industries - and the
ongoing PR campaign
that branded absinthe a

banned absinthe

banned. Ten ppm was a
Completely arbitrary
number but no one had
the technology to test it.
For years, black-market
X7 absinthe was available from
Spain and Czechoslovakia.
Other absinthes found there way
into off-the-books distribution
channels. These were character-
ized by labels that promoted high
thujone content and recipes that
included manufacturing additives
like copper sulfate (also known
as bluestone) and antimony
trichloride (a.k.a. butter of anti-
mony), neither of which are on
your average nutritionist's
favorite foods list. If you've poi-
soned aquatic plants lately,
you've probably used copper sul-
fate.
In the 1990s. absinthe made a
comeback. By 2000, the
European Union had removed
most bans and absinthe was
being distilled legally. In 2007
the U.S. government approved
thujone-free absinthe (fewer than
10 ppm thujone) for distribution.

depravity-producing absinthes of
the "Belle Epoque" had very low

5 ppm thujone or less.
Given the amount of thujone

'Spider' spins a web of music


Folksy, bluesy
Koerner returns
to Green Parrot
Went to the paragon of the
cozy wharf-town watering
hole, the Green Parrot Bar.
last week to hear "Spider" John
Koerner sing his old-time blues.
Koerer is a dyed-in-the-
wool folkie who was lured out
of the
S University
of
Minnesota
by a bor-
rowed gui-
" �" tar and a
Burl Ives
songbook.
He has
criss-
crossed the
nation and
Judi Bradford the world
since then,
doing simply one thing - sin-
gin' the blues.
He has done it so long and
so intensely that the music
world stops to listen to one guy,
one guitar, a straight-back chair
and a harmonica in a holder.
In his autobiography,
"Chronicles, Volume One," Bob
Dylan says, "I ... went into the
Ten O'Clock Scholar, a Beat
coffeehouse. I was'looking for
players with kindred spirits. The
first guy I met in Minneapolis
like me was sitting around in
there. It was John Koerner and
he also had an acoustic guitar
with him. Koerner was tall and
thin with a look of perpetual
amusement on his face. We hit


tie, Koerncr took us back
through the 1()960s tohe Dust
Bowl and hobo trains. He seems
as entertained by performing as
his audience. -le talks to his
fans and listens to their stories.
He played frequently with
the late. legendary Dave
"Snaker" Ray and is cited by
music authorities as an influ-
ence on Dylan, Bonnie Raitt,
John Lennon and the Doors.
He is a frequent guest on
Garrison Keillor's "A Prairie
Home Companion" and other
National Public Radio shows.
Koerner gigs at the Green
Parrot a couple of times a year,
thanks to his diligent and Keys-
loving Florida agent "01'


Folkic" Jim Higgins. This show
was part of his Winter 2008 No
Stress Tour of Florida.
Miscellaneous notes from his
Web site biography (www.mwt
.net/~koerner): He has a pas-
sion for astronomy and has built
and reconstructed telescopes in
the north, east and western U.S.;
Mexico; and Zimbabwe. He has
lectured at colleges and present-
ed "Spider John's -Space
Shows."
He is also interested in
wooden-boat building and sail
design and has completed con-
struction of an 18-foot cat,
which he sails on the Minnesota
lakes.

John Koerner isn't any old guitar singer. He's played with the
likes of Bob Dylan and is a frequent contributor on 'A Prairie

it off right away.... When he
spoke he was soft spoken, but
when he sang he became a field
holler shouter. Koerner was an
exciting singer, and we began
playing a lot together."
Just when I thought it was
pretty incredible that Koerner
could hold an audience in a
venue as lively and boisterous
as the Green Parrot, he went
one step further and sang

The concert, titled "Let's
Build a Home," will feature
Melody Cooper, Michael
McCabe, Kathleen Peace and
Libby York.
Cooper's repertoire includes a
large variety of music including
jazz. blues and opera.
McCabe just finished a suc-
cessful run of "Tuesdays With
Morrie" at the Waterfront
Playhouse and has also appeared
in many local musical produc-
tions at all three theatrical ven-
ues in Key West.
Peace will provide strong
vocals with her arrangements of
many standard and not-so-stan-
dard tunes. .
York is preparing for her new
CD release called "Here With
You" at the Metropolitan Room
at Gotham in New York City.
"Each one of them said yes
immediately when I asked if
they would d help with this con-


cert," Ross says. "None of them
hesitated or asked me to get
back with them; they all said yes
without hesitation."
Backing up the group of vet-
eran entertainers is Skipper
Kripitz and Gordy Michaels,
themselves veteran entertainers
in most of Key West's venues.
Like so many others follow-
ing Wilma in October 2005; Ross
found his situation unreal before
Habitat came to the rescue.
"1 would never have thought I
would ever lose my home to a
disaster such as the Wilma
flood." he says. "I am pro-
grammed to help people, not seek
help. So this whole experience
with Habitat for Humanity was
quite intense and wonderful."
Tickets are $35 and $50. The
Casa Marina patio opens at 7
p.m. for a cocktail reception
(cash bar), with the performance
in the newly renovated ballroom
beginning at 8. Call the Key

CAMP expands


Music program
now includes
tourism, video
The nonprofit Educational
Coalition for Monroe
County, in collaboration
with Monroe County School
District and Florida Keys
Community College, is offering
its Cultural American Music
Program, or CAMP, for the sixth
straight year.
CAMP is a day program in
the Middle Keys that offers pro-
fessional instruction and per-
formance opportunities to stu-
dents through Monroe. Students
from public, private and home-
school programs can apply.
New for 2008 are two career-
focused programs for non-music
students.
One is culinary arts/hospitali-
ty management/tourism, the other
is film/video production offered
for dual-enrollment credit for
non-music students and as elec-
tive choices for music students.
Space is available for stu-
dents in grades seven to 12.
Music and performing-arts stu-


dents must have previous vocal,
instrumental theater or ballroom
instruction (private lessons,
school band or school chorus).
The program will be held
June 14 through July 19 at
Marathon High School.
Countywide transportation will
be provided through the School
District with stops at Coral
Shores High School, the
Islamorada library, FKCC on
Stock Island, Sugarloaf School
and the Big Pine Academy.
This year's theme is "CAMP
2008: Where the Magic
Happens." Students will have an
opportunity for intensive instruc-
tion from world-renowned pro-
fessionals in their fields and fin-
ish up with a concert/theatrical
performance and student-catered
banquet. A variety of community
performances and field experi-
ences will include performances
at Saturday in the Park at the
Marathon amphitheater, a formal
dinner dance/student showcase
and a cultural field trip/photo
shoot. All are student driven and
produced.
Elementary students have an
exclusive program, Junior
CAMP, that incorporates the


basics of music instruction with
instrumentals, vocals and the-
ater.
For more information, call
743-6215 or send an e-mail to

o-re than 30 antique
dealers from around the
United States are to
stage the country's southernmost
antiques show Feb. 22 to 24 on
the historic island of Key West.
The antiques are to be dis-
played against the backdrop of
the Civil War-era East Marlello
fort that is now a museum show-
casing the city's offbeat history.
The fourth annual Key West
Antiques Show & Sale is to take
place at the fort, 3501 S.
Roosevelt Blvd., next to Key
West International Airport.
Those attending can view and
purchase a wide variety of
antiques and collectibles during
the event. Appraisals, antique
clinics, snacks and a full bar are
to round out the attractions.
To benefit the Key West Art
& Historical Society, the antiques
action begins with a preview and
early buying party set for 6 to 9
p.m. Feb. 22. Attendees can sam-


n 1965, the Key West Art
Center originated and spon-
sored a show of original fine
art to promote the cultural image
of the island city.
On Feb. 23 and 24, the 43rd
annual Old Island Days Art
Festival is to continue that tradi-
tion with works by approximately
a hundred artists from throughout
the United States and Canada.
Still presented by the Key
West Art Center, the acclaimed
open-air show is slated for 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. both days in the
historic Old Town district.
Whitehead Street is to be closed
to vehicular traffic from Greene
to Caroline streets, creating a
lively outdoor marketplace
where art lovers can view
exhibitors' offerings while
enjoying Key West's typically


warm, sunny February weather.
Booths also are to be placed
on Caroline Street within
Truman Annex, a gracious
enclave that includes the Harry
S. Truman Little White House
Museum where the late presi-
dent spent 175 days during his
1945-1953 tenure in office.
Repeatedly lauded by
Sunshine Artist magazine as one
of the country's top 200 art
shows, the festival is to feature
artists in media such as water-
color, oil painting, sculpture and
photography. The show is juried
to ensure that its traditionally
high standards of quality are
maintained.
Admission to the Old Island
Days Art Festival is free.

Pick your poison


Absinthe cocktail time


FIVE O'CLOCK / From 30

creative jolt. Unfortunately, the
alcohol would kill you before
you completed your dosage, so
you'd have to find another path
to artistic glory.
So Breaux concentrated on
discovering and replicating the
uld techniques and recipes to
produce an authentic, inherent-
ly low-thujone absinthe.
Lucid is distilled slowly in
Combier's original antique
copper stills and apparatus,
much of it designed by Gustav
Eiffel (of tower fame). Only
native European herbs and


spirits are used. There are no
artificial additives, oils or dyes.
Breaux's recipe includes a
full measure of grande worm-
wood (artemesia absinthium),
green anise, sweet fennel and
other culinary herbs. It's
important for tasters to note
that grande wormwood is dif-
ferent from southern worm-
wood (artemesia abrotanum),
used in some "get-on-the-band-
wagon" absinthes, which has a
different flavor and chemistry.
Lucid is a 124-proof (that's
62 percent alcohol by volume),
dark emerald green liquor. It is
not a liqueur: it's a true dis-
tilled spirit.


0 - 0 0 0-


The traditional preparation
is to pour about an ounce and a
half of absinthe into a glass,
then slowly trickle ice cold
water over a sugar cube held in
a slotted spoon into the
absinthe. The sugar is supposed
to offset any sense of bitterness
in the absinthe. The cold water
touchess" the absinthe turning
it a cloudy jade green and
releasing the liquor's aromas.
The generally accepted mix
of water to absinthe is about
5:1 but at that ratio, the
absinthe tasted like a lightly
flavored vodka. More to my
liking was a not-quite-3:l mix.
Though I've never been a fan
of licorice, the 3:1 Lucid was
pleasant and aromatic. The fla-
vor wasn't overbearing, more
like a touch of fennel in a
salad.
I'm told that European
absinthes are more complex,
with aromas of various herbs
and wood. Lucid is simple and
straightforward, which seems
.to better serve American tastes.
It's the hot cold drink in New
York bars and the trend is
spreading. Lucid might add an
interesting touch to a romantic
Valentine's Day night.
The alcohol content, diluted
by water, still packs a punch. 1
didn't hallucinate but 1 could
have sworn I saw a TV com-
mercial about Bill Clinton run-
ning for president.


Panachee
It was the only way a lady
should drink absinthe during
the Belle Epoque. Order a
panachee today at a French
cafe, you'll get beer mixed
with lemonade.
* One part absinthe.
* One part anisette.
* Fill with iced water
dripped over a sugar cube
to taste.

Sazerac
Created by a New Orleans
pharmacy in the early 19th
century to ward off tropical
malaise, it is considered by
some historians to be the first
cocktail ever invented.
Served in a French egg cup
called a coquetier, which
was mispronounced into
"cocktail."
* 1.5 ounces absinthe.
* 2 ounces Cognac (orig-
inally, Cognac Sazerac-de-
Forge).
o 3 dashes Peychaud's
Bitters.
* Half a teaspoon sugar.
Shake with ice and strain
into an old-fashion glass (or
egg cup), garnish with lemon
peel.

Absinthe Suissesse
Along with blues guitarist
extraordinaire Brian Lee, this
is a staple at the Old


Absinthe House on Bourbon
Street in New Orleans
(anisette is used to be substi-
tuted for absinthe).
Considered an excellent
morning-after remedy. British
occultist Aleister Crowley
wrote, "Absinthe - the Green
Goddess" in the Old Absinthe
House.
+ 1.5 ounces absinthe.
+ Half ounce orgeat
syrup.
* 1 egg white.
* Half ounce single
cream.
* 4 ounces shaved ice.
Combine all in a blender,
blend for five seconds and
serve in a chilled cocktail
glass.

Hemingway's
From the 1935 celebrities'
cocktail book "So Red the
Nose, or Breath in the
Afternoon," Ernest
Hemingway wrote that his
Death in the Afternoon cock-
tail "was arrived at by the
author and three officers of
the H.M.S. Danae after hav-
ing spent seven hours over-
board trying to get Capt. Bra
Saunders' fishing boat off a
bank where she had gone
with us in a N.W. gale."
But according to Liqueurs
de France, "It seems highly
unlikely that Hemingway
would have drunk this con-
coction if given a choice. In
most cases, the mixture ruins
both ingredients, which
would have annoyed him. In

Westwood gets
too close for
Conchs' comfort
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Clutch hitting, sterling field-
ing and just enough pitching
enabled the Key West High
School baseball team to subdue
pesky Westwood Christian, 9-4,
Thursday night at Rex Weech
Field.
It was the first regular-season
game for the Conchs and came in
the opening round of the Derek
Parker Memorial Tournament.
which concludes at 7:30 tonight
with the championship contest.
The game was much more of
a struggle than the final score
would suggest.
Blayne Weller, Key West's
senior right-handed pitcher, got
off to a shaky start. A throwback
player with his high red socks
and high leg kick, Weller dis-
played a fast ball that topped out,
according to a radar gun, at
90 mph.
But the Miami school's first
two batters, Julien Plana and
Jorge Saez, feasted on that fast
ball, combining for a first-inning
run with a single and double,
respectively.
The Conchs tied the game, 1-
1, in their half of the inning when
second baseman Frankie Ratcliff

Eagles pounce 20-1


Izaguirre
keeps 16 Boca
batters hitless
By KEVIN WADLOW

kwadlow@keynoter.com

Island Christian's baseball
opener Thursday provided little
more than batting practice for a
veteran Eagle squad.
The Eagles stunned Horeb
Christian, 20-1, in a game called


because of darkness after three
innings.
"We were trying not to run
up the score" against a very
young Horeb team, ICS coach
Tony Hammon said, "but you
can only do so much."
Now things get interesting,
with solid Boca Raton Christian
coming to Islamorada for two
ganes Friday and Feb. 23.
Then the Eagles face back-
to-back games against defend-
ing district champions in Brito


Private (Feb. 28) and
Champagnat Catholic (March
3).
"Our schedule is tougher
than it's been in a while,"
Hammon said. "Fortunately. I
believe we have the personnel to
deal with it."
Horeb will not argue after the
Eagles swatted out 14 hits.
Senior Matthew Izaguirre dou-
bled and tripled before slapping
a three-run home run.
"It was a ton of hits,"

He won his opening match
on Thursday, a 6-1 decision
over Clay High's Kenny

Coral Shores' Soares saw his

Aydt lost to Tronic Williams

Lady Canes get a break


Coach cancels
practice after
3rd straight win
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

His Lady Hurricanes team
hanging onto a narrow one-
goal lead at Killian, Coral
Shores lacrosse coach Mark
Hall found the perfect motiva-
tion.
"I told them if we won, they
wouldn't have to practice
Friday," he said. The Lady
Canes responded with a nine-
goal scoring barrage for a 13-6
victory that keeps Coral Shores
unbeaten at 3-0.
"The girls really like their
Friday off," Hall noted.
Three wins in the first three
starts leaves the Canes just one


win away from their victory
total for the entire 2007 season.
"The girls' goal this year is
to win a district champi-
onship," Hall said. "They're
well on their way."
Rachel Catanio scored a
team-high five goals against
Killian, giving her 10 on the
season.
Brittany Wood tallied four
goals while Lexi Glista and
Vallerie Ostenson each scored
twice.
The Canes were nursing a
narrow 4-3 lead at halftime.
Defenders Anna Noe and
Kelsey Garcia anchored the
defense, with goalie Dannon
Magrane make three saves.
"We have Killian too many
opportunities," Hall said.
"When we lost a possession,
our girls fought and fought to
get it back. They were very


aggressive and didn't let
Killian get anything easy."
Coral Shores took 30 shots
on the Killian net to score its
13 goals. "When we drop
below 50 percent Iscoring per-
centage], that's a little low for
my taste," the coach said.
The Hurricanes travel to
Weston to play Cypress Bay
Wednesday, then host J.P.
Taravella High School at noon
Feb. 23.
Coral Shores' boys lacrosse
team (1-1) plays a second-
round game at the Palmer
Trinity Invitational Tour-
nament today. Results from
Friday's opener were not avail-
able at press time.
The Hurricanes (1-1) host
Ransom Everglades at 5 p.m.
Tuesday.
A scheduled Wednesday
game at Miami Country Day
was rained out his week and
moved to March 11.

CONCHS / From 48

tripled and scored on a wild pitch.
The game stayed tied until the
fourth when, with a startling
crack, Key West right fielder
Radier Gonzalez sent a two-run
homer soaring high over the left-
tield fence. The Conch dugout
erupted and players rushed out to
greet Gonzalez as he crossed the
plate.
With Key West runners on
second and third and two outs in
the bottom of the fifth, Westwood
took out starter Ricky Perez as
Jimmy Buffett's "Margaritaville"
played over the PA system. After
its last strains died, Charlie
Walker-Yhap stood in against
Bryan Ortiz.
"Be at your best," coach
Miguel Menendez called down
from the third-base coaching box.
Walker-Yhap then lined a
two-run single to put the Conchs
ahead, 5-1.
The lead seemed safe with
Weller breezing along - he had
struck out the side in the fifth.
But in the sixth, he gave up three
hits and made two wild pitches,
allowing the Warriors to score


three runs, the last on a double by
Armando Alvarez.
Kevin Hernandez came on in
relief, but Aaron Fernandez
immediately singled to right.
Gonzalez charged the ball and
threw perfectly to Joseph
Gandolfo. the little sophomore
catcher, who blocked the plate
and tagged the onrushing Alvarez
to keep the score at 5-4.
Re-energized, the Conchs then
scored four runs in the bottom of
the sixth. Ratcliff hit his second
triple to score Alfred Rahning, as
Ratcliff's excited father Frank
accepted high-fives in the stands.


Raiko Alfonso and Kyle
Lepine followed with RBI sin-
gles, and Nolan Thomas closed
the scoring with a sacrifice fly.
In the top of the seventh,
Menendez decided it was time
for Ratcliff to make his varsity
pitching debut. He came on for
Hemandez with one on and one
out and got the final two batters
on a fly-out and a strikeout.
"I knew he would throw
strikes and be fearless out there,"
Menendez said. "We have been
experimenting with this, and this
was the first chance we had to use
him."

14-game battle goes to Scammacca


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


She had been down, 3-0, but
Key West High School junior
Gabby Scammacca had battled
back. Now, she was serving at 4-
4 on a maroon-and-gray court
that looked faded under Tuesday
afternoon's gray sky.
Her opponent, Marathon's
Marisa Brossard, a slender blue-
clad freshman ranked 32nd in the
state among girls 14 and younger,
was trying hard not to fade in this
No. 1 singles match watched by a
small cluster of fans in lawn
chairs.
Scammacca looked sharp in
the ninth game, particularly when
she took a short ball and hit a
backhand winner to go up 40-15.
She went on to win the game, but
Brossard quickly tied the set at 5-
5, the game point coming on a
sliced drop shot that Scammacca
couldn't reach.
Down 30-15 in the llth game,
Scammacca put together three
consecutive service winners to
take a 6-5 lead. Brossard then
held her serve, winning the next
game with four unanswered
points, and it was 6-6.
"You're going to win the next
two games," Key West coach
Paul Findlay said to Scammacca
through the green chain-link
fence.
At deuce in the next game,
Brossard returned a shot long -
"Oh, my gosh," she said - and
Scammacca took advantage of
the error with another service
winner to go ahead, 7-6.
Hitting shots wide, Brossard,
tight-lipped and disconsolate, fell
behind, 40-0, in the ensuing
game. She saved one match point
but then sent a shot wide to give
Scammacca an 8-6 victory. The
lawn-chair section applauded
both players as they left the court.
"I was down, but I stayed
calm," Scammacca said after-
ward. "I don't think I felt as much
pressure as she did. She is so tiny,
but has a lot of power."
It was the first match of the
season for Scammacca, who is
considerably more fit than she
was a year ago. "I trained all
summer," she said. "I changed
my eating, I swam, biked, went to
the gym."
Brossard, her face in a towel,
retreated to the gymnasium steps
after the match to ponder her
defeat. When she regained her
composure, she said, "I played


pretty good. When 1 was up. 3-0,
I kind of got overconfident and it
started going downhill. Then,
anger kicked in and that never
helps."
Said her coach, Mark Hooper:
"She beat herself on some shots,
but that's why it's high school


tennis."
Brossard, though, helped the
Dolphin girls defeat the Conchs,
4-3, when she teaed with Angelo
Farello to defeat Scammacca and
Rae Lark in No. 1 doubles.
The Key West boys won, 6-1,
with Andrew Wallace. Nick
Scammacca, Justin Tomita and
George Clark getting victories,


though Nick Lark, a senior, lost
to eighth-grader John Danaher, 8-
7. The Conch doubles teams of
Lark and Scammacca and Clark
and Tomita also won.
"John Danaher said he was
ready to play No. 1 and I told
him, 'OK, let's see what you can
do.' and he went out there and did
it," Hooper said.

Freshman newcomers Casey
Rhyne at No. 2 and Micheala
Walters at No. 5 each.rang up S-2
victories.
The two doubles teams fin-
ished things off with 8-0 wins
against the Lady Sabres.


"The girls are looking very
strongg" Fry said.
Allison Rhyne should be a
capable replacement for last
year's graduated No. 1, Sydney
Stroup.
"Allison is much stronger and
healthier after rehabilitation from
a severe knee injury last year,"
Fry said. "She trained hard in the
off-season and is really hitting
well, with more power and quick-
ness.
The rest of the lineup could
shift, he said. "Both Annie and
Simona are solid. We could easi-
ly move them into any one of the
top positions."
On the boys' side, a young
Coral Shores roster lost to St.
Brendan, 5-2.
The Sabres won all five sin-
gles spots, with Coral Shores
coming back to win both doubles.
Zack Stroup focused on his game
in the off-season and has played
his way up to No. 1 from No. 3


last year.
"Zack will continue to
improve," Fry said. "He's a great
athlete and has a tremendous
future."
Aaron Holmbraker, the only
returning senior, moves into the
No. 2 spot. " "Aaron is our work-
horse who leads by his example,"
Fry said.
First-year senior Thomas
Guigo made his debut at No. 3,
with freshman James Engstrom
at No. 4 and first-year junior
Brendan Hiller at No. 5.
"They're all working hard and
will improve weekly," Fry said.
"I expect them to be very com-
petitive before the end of this sea-
son.
A match earlier this week
against state title contender
Gulliver Prep was rained out.
Results from a Friday match
against Belen were not available
at press time.
Coral Shores hosts
