Dolphin escapes, found dead


Wilson has

been missing

since January
By RYAN McCARTHY
nnccarlthy@ keynoter.cin

The body of a bottlenose dol-
phin, born and raised at the
Dolphin Connection facility on
Duck Key, was found Saturday
on the oceanside of Grassy Keyv.
The 6-year-old dolphin,
Wilson, had disappeared from its
lagoon the morning of Jan. 16
and Dolphin Connection staff had
been conducting an intense
search for him since that time.
Dolphin Connection co-
founder Cheryl Messinger told
the Keynoter the staff has no idea
how Wilson escaped.
"Our staff came in the morn-
ing at 7:15 and he was there. At 8,
we went to do a feeding and he
wasn't there," Messinger said.
"We've been searching ever
since."
According to a statement


released by the Dolphin
Connection, which is a swim-
with-the-dolphins facility, the
search included aerial surveys, a
network of onl-w\ater patrols and
daily responses to reports of
"friendly" dolphins.
"We can't thank the conununi-
ly enough for its support during
this incredibly difficult timen."
Dolphin Connection co-founder
and director Doug Messinger said
in the statement. "We had help
from anglers, charter boat cap-
tains. dive boat operators, many
members of the community and a
variety of others who are on the
water every day."
The statement says on rare
occasions, dolphins have escaped
over the 22-year history of the
facility (the Dolphin Connection
Web site says it was founded in
1990), but Wilson was the first
not to attempt to return.
Cheryl said many local agen-
cies received reports of Wilson
sightings in recent days, but
necropsy results showed he was


deceased for several days before
being found.
"We're completely devastated
and this is a horrible situation for
everyone," she told the Keynoter.
"You can equate it to losing
your dog out in the wilderness
somewhere. They don't know
how to survive on their own," she
said. "If he could have joined a
local )pod and survived, that
would have been fine, but it was
obvious he couldn't feed him-
sell."
The statement says the
Dolphin Connection contacted
wild-dolphin behaviorists regard-
ing how local dolphins might
respond to a "naive young dol-
phin like Wilson ... in an attempt
to get clues that might help in a
successful recovery."
Photos taken of Wilson near
the location he was found showed
he was emaciated and not getting
adequate food on his own, the
statement says.
"At least now there's closure:
we know what happened," a sob-
bing Cheryl said. "It's better than
wondering."


Complaint alleges conflict


COLEMAN / From I

discredit me since I am sure they
know that I plan to continue to
be involved in the process."
Marathon Mayor Pete
Worthington, a commercial fish-
erman who has a keen interest in
the working waterfront, says the
complaint is unfounded, too.
"The Pophams have been
nothing but supportive in trying
to protect the working water-
front in Marathon and the coun-
ty as long as I've known them,"
Worthington said.
Coleman works for Robbie
Reckwerdt, who owns the Stock
Island Robbie's Marina. In the
complaint, Coleman says the
ordinance would restrict water-
front properties in unincorporat-
ed Monroe County "while her
and her husband's own water-
front boat yard and marina could
still be sold out as a gated water-
front community...."
Both Sherry and Bruce
Popham have been vocal advo-
cates of preserving commercial
fishing and the waterfront busi-
nesses that support it. As a plan-
niing commissioner, Sherry


Popham was instrumental in
drafting language of an ordi-
nance unanimously approved by
the commission in August. In
September, the County
Commission approved the ordi-
nance and it was sent to the sate
Department of Community
Affairs for reviews.
In December. DCA issued a
series of objections to the pro-
posed ordinance, many of them
based on what it called vague
language. County staff reworked
the law based on the state's
objections, then brought it
before the County Commission
for the approval needed to send
it back to the DCA once again.
At that Feb. 4 meeting.
Coleman and attorney David
Paul Horan, working for New
Stock Island Properties, pro-
posed some last-minute changes
to the ordinance that would
make it easier for their Stock
Island clients to redevelop their
waterfront land.
Mayor Sonny McCoyv and
commissioners Mario Di
Gennaro and Dixie Spchar voted
for the ordinance, conmmission-
ers George Neugent and Sylvia
Murphy against.


Coleman insinuated at the
Feb. 4 meeting that Popham
would financially benefit by
restricting his client's redevelop-
ment opportunities. As part of
her resignation statement,
Popham noted that both she and
her husband have worked to get
Marathon to do its part preserv-
ing the waterfront.
"We own a boat yard. So do
your clients," she said to
Coleman. "No implicit rights
came with that yard for anything
but. Nor do we have the right to
demand land-use changes solely
for our economic benefit."
Coleman's complaint calls
for a full investigation.
"Ms. Popham's role seemed
to transgress" state disclosure
laws, he wrote in the complaint.
Coleman's complaint follows
closely on the heels of another
complaint to the Ethics
Commission, that one filed by
resident Paul Caruso alleging
Spehar might be susceptible to
coercion when voting on work-
ing-waterfront issues because
she lives in a boat slip on Stock
Island. That complaint was dis-
missed last week.

No one panicking


CUBA / From I

Wester and retired market devel-
opment director of Newsweek's
Latin American edition, calls the
announcement itself unexpected.
"It comes as a surprise - not
that he is quitting - but that he
announced it," Pascual said.
"People expected he'd just even-
tually die. What it hopefully
means is that his brother is ready
to make some changes."
Pascual, 57, volunteers at the
San Carlos Institute on Duval
Street. He says Fidel Castro "was
only there symbolically" the past
19 months.
Some even made light of
Castro's announcement.
The Ocean Key Resort in Key
West said it's offering 90-cent
Cuba libre cocktails at its sunset
pier until May 19. Cuba is 90
miles from Key West.
Federal and local authorities
closely monitored events, but no
major migrant outflows or other
reactions were reported.
Monroe County Emergency
Management Director Irene
Toner said closer attention will be
paid to the country's new leader-
ship.
"At this moment, other than
reviewing our procedures and
going over our plans, we're just
sitting back and observing what's
going on over there," Toner said.
"We do have a local mass migra-
tion plan which describes what
the entities in the county would do


should something like that occur."
Toner said the response to
such an event would be federal
but that the county would work in
conjunction with the U.S. Coast
Guard, among other agencies.
Last year, a report written by
Tourist Development Council
public-relations chief Andy
Newman detailed what would
happen locally. For example, the
Sheriff's Office would monitor
trailered boats, especially larger
ones, more closely since they
could be used to dash to Cuba to
pick up emigrants.
One major Stock Island devel-
oper is counting on Cuba's com-
merce in the near future. New
Stock Island Properties' plans for
most of the land along Safe Harbor
include a possible ferry service to
the island nation. Safe Harbor and
Key West Harbor are the only
deep-water ports in the Keys.
"It will be a great jumping-off
spot," Stock Island restaurant
owner Bobby Mongelli said in a
videotaped interview. "1 think
Cuba's going to shape Stock
Island in another way that we
don't even know what's going to
happen."
Many in Marathon also envi-
sion commerce from Cuba
through Boot Key Harbor.

Keynoter reporters Kyle Teal
and Ryan McCarthy and
Reporter staff writer Kristen
Burnie compiled this report.
which was supplemented with
material from the Miami Herald.

Stop-sign running
leads to drug charge

A Stock Island man stopped
for running a stop sign on his
moped was jailed Sunday after a
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
deputy reportedly found seven
small bags of cocaine in his back-
pack.
Deputy Becky Herrin said
Deputy Evan Calhoun was in the
area of 2nd Street on Stock Island
when he saw the moped run the
stop sign. He pulled the driver
over and identified him as Joel
Parrott.
After giving Parrott, 24, a ver-
bal warning, reportedly told him
he was free to go but asked per-
mission to search his backpack.
Parrott reportedly said OK.


Herrin said Calhoun found the
cocaine. Parrott was charged
with possession of cocaine with
intent to sell within 1,000 feet of
a church.

The list of five candidates for

according to that department's

State OKs evolution education


But it's to be
called 'theory'
during teaching
By MARC CAPUTO
mcaputo@MiamiHerald.com

For the first time ever, evo-
lution is to be taught clearly
and explicitly in Florida class-
rooms now that the Florida
Board of Education Tuesday
approved a batch of new sci-
ence standards that says the
"E" word.
But there's a catch: By a 4-
3 vote, the board approved the
standards to say evolution -
like the concepts about cells
and atoms - will be called a
"scientific theory" so that it's
not taught as a law of science
or a fact.


The original standards,
updated for the first time since
1996 and drafted and reviewed
by a panel of experts, didn't
call evolution a "theory."
Religious activists opposed
that, as well as language call-
ing evolution "the fundamen-
tal concept underlying all of
biology."
So the state's Department
of Education proposed identi-
fying scientific, theories as
such, while religious activists
asked the board to consider a
so-called "academic freedom"
measure giving teachers the
explicit permission "to engage
students in a critical analysis
of that evidence."
The board rejected that sec-
ond proposal, saying it was
redundant.


Miami-based board mem-
ber Roberto Martinez wanted
neither change. He said they
were designed to undermine
science for the gain of the reli-
gious right. "We know what
this is about," Martincz said,
who dissented because he did-
n't want the word "theory."
Joining him for the oppo-
site reason: Tallahassee board
member Donna Callaway. She
said calling evolution a theory
wasn't enough, and pushed for
the "academic freedom meas-
ure.
Before the board voted, it
held an hour of public testimo-
.ny in which supporters and
critics of the standards almost
reversed roles. The evolution
supporters talked about God.
The critics talked about sci-
ence being too "dogmatic."
Illustrating the apparent


role reversals: the clerical col-
lar worn by Presbyterian pas-
tor Brant S. Copeland of
Tallahassee. IHe supported the
standards as written and said
evolution has helped shed
light on God's creation.
On the other side: public
school teacher David Brackin.
He said the standards seem to
discourage any teaching that
questions evolution.
"There are cracks. There
are holes," Brackin said, not-
ing research and study from
the Intelligent Design move-
ment, which posits that multi-


pie forms of life show such
complexity and evidence of
design that they must have
been made by some unnamed
higher intelligence.
But board member Phoebe
Raulerson said that's not the
case. She provided the second
to board member Linda
Tayloi's motion to add the
"scientific theory" language,
but didn't take up Callaway's
motion to add the "academic
freedom" provision because
the standards already encour-
age critical thinking.


Old pipes get new use


PIPES / From I

$11.5 million, is the largest Keys
pipeline-replacement undertak-
en in the last quarter-century,
following completion of the 36-
inch pipeline in 1982.
Work began last June after
four breaks or major leaks in
the troublesome area sent water
cascading over U.S. 1.
Residents received orders to
boil water coming out of the
tap.
"A replacement was on the
horizon but it was moved up
the schedule to avoid the serv-
ice disruptions." Tagle said.
According to Aqueduct
Authority engineers, the 1982
pipeline had not been properly
cushioned into the coral rock
that runs through the Tavernier
area. Water pressure causes
pipelines to vibrate, and
decades of use causes holes to
puncture the sleel pipe.
The new section is better
cushioned and wrapped with a
special tape to extend the lifes-
pan.
From about 8 p.m. Thursday


to 8 a.m. Friday, crews will be
activating the new section.
Motorists are advised to use
caution going through the area.
No water disruptions to resi-
dents are anticipated, Tagle
said.
Structures currently seen at
the project - a piece of
pipeline extending above the
surface and a cage containing a
large valve near mile marker
92.5 - will be removed when
work as finished. The valves
help bleed air out of the
pipeline, Tagle said.
"Everything will be under-
ground." Tagle said. "People
won't even know it's there."
A section of the pipeline
being replaced will be deeded
to the Key Largo Wastewater
Treatment District for use in
future sewering efforts.
Tentative plans call for running
a smaller pipe through the
abandoned water pipeline to
carry wastewater.
The Tavernier project was
the first time the Aqueduct
Authority offered a contractor
an incentive to finish ahead of
schedule. Delays in receiving
components and parts prevent-
ed Garney from earning the
bonus, Tagle said.
"The offer of the incentive
helped keep things on track."
Tagle said. "Garney has been
fantastic to work with. doing
their best to help with concerns
of the residents in that area."
Said Ritz, "The board is
pleased with the progress, and
we appreciate the patience
from folks in the surrounding
neighborhoods. It will all be
O\vct verve soon.

Burnett resurfaces for Puto job


By RYAN McCARTHY
nmccarthly@ keyinoler.comn

With Marathon City Manager
Mike Puto having officially ten-
dered his resignation, a familiar
name has already resurfaced as a
possible successor.
Clyde Burnett, Key Colony
Beach mayor and city administra-
tor, said he plans to decide within
days whether he will seek the top
job in Marathon.
Rumors began swirling
regarding Burnett taking the job
last July, with the Marathon City
Council unhappy with Puto's per-
formance. He said at the time he


had been approached by
MNarathon residents who fell he
would be a good fit for the posi-
tion.
"Discussions came iup last
sulnlner: of course, now\ that
[Puto has] resigned it's popped up
again. I'd forgotten about it and I
need to decide one way or the
other." Burnett said. "I can't
leave the people of Key Colony
Beach hanging."
Burnett is the lone incumbent
running in a five-candidate race
to fill two open seats on the Kex
Colony Beach City Commission.


Two die in


Card Sound crash


Commissioner Arline Carbin
chose not to seek re-clection in
the city's March 11 general elec-
tion.
Other qualified candidates in
Key Colony are Tucker DeGraw,
April Tracy. Geraldine Zahn and
Steven Flood.
As for Burnett's potential
employers, Marilyn Tempest was
the only one of three Marathon
City Council members to indicate
an early intention to seek re-elec-
tion. Both Mayor Pete
Worthington and Vice Mayor
Chris Bull's terms are expiring.
as \well.
Normally, Marathon would be
gearing up for elections itself, but
58 percent of residents voted in
the last election in favor of a ref-
ereniduim to move the date to
November. It increased the terms
of Tempest, Bull and
Worthington bv eight months.


Tempest said she considered
not running for re-election, but
questions regarding her standing
have made her reconsider of late.
"Unless something happens, I
will probably run again,"
Tempest said, noting it's still very
early in the process. "I kind of
like to keep my options open.
There are a lot of things in life
that can change you mind."
Tempest said she feels the cur-
rent council is "an eclectic
group." but a good one, and she is
mainly concerned with seeing
through the process of sewering
the city. She said being on coun-
cil is a rewarding experience and
that "the idea of having good
competition is excellent."
Worthington and Bull were
non-committal regarding their
intentions this November.
"1 haven't looked that far into
the future," Worthington said.


Bull said he has made no deci-

A vehicle crash into woods
and water along Card Sound
Road killed two Homestead men
Saturday.
Joel Alonso, 26. and passen-
ger Crosbin W. Fuentes. 22. were
identified as the victims.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, Alonso was at
the wheel of a 1998 Chevrolet
sport-utility vehicle driving north
at 3:40 p.m. "at an excessive rate
of speed," believed to be at least
80 mph.
After crossing Saunders Creek
Bridge, the Chevrolet skidded
onto the east shoulder of the road
and slammed into a hardwood
tree. The vehicle flipped onto its
roof, landing in water 4 to 5 feet
deep.
"The driver was partially
ejected through the left door win-
dow and died upon impact with
tree limbs," according to the FHP.
Fuentes remained inside the
vehicle and apparently drowned.
Neither man was wearing a
seat, reported the FHP investiga-
tors, Trooper T.P. Reilly and Cpl.
D. Rios. Alcohol may be a con-
tributing factor.
Saunders Creek Bridge is the
last small bridge northbound traf-
fic crosses before the Card Sound
Bridge.
Alonso and Fuentes were the
sixth and seventh traffic fatalities
of 2008 south of Florida City.
The men were not believed to


workers at Ocean Reef. said a
community official.
Investigation closed Card
Sound Road for about four hours,
until approximately 7:30 p.m.

Three-car crash
Three vehicles in the Lower
Keys suffered estimated total
damages of more than $2 1,000
after an 8 a.m. Monday accident.
Eduardo Fonseca of Big Pine
Key stopped his 1998 Dodge to
make a left turn from the south-
bound lane of U.S. I at mile
marker 17.5 on Sugarloaf Key. A
truck traveling south driven by
Jose F. Rodriguez. 29, of Miami
struck the Dodge from behind.
The impact knocked the
Fonseca car into the northbound
lane, where it collided head-on
with a 2003 Dodge driven by
Wendy Kilheffer of Big Pine Key.
Kilheffer was injured: the
extent of the injuries was not
known at press time.

Rare 'cosmic ballet'

rises above tonight

Rarely do the stars so align as tonight's stellar show.
For nearly two-thirds of the globe, a full lunar eclipse will be
center stage as the earth's shadow covers the full moon.
It will be the last opportunity to see this celestial phenome-
non until 2010. But it's not the only sky-gazer event of note
tonight.
Somewhere over the Pacific Ocean, the U.S. Navy will
attempt to shoot out of the sky a faulty and falling spy satel-
lite.
Because of the time differences, we'll be looking up almost
at the same time the Navy attempts its shootdown, scheduled
for 4:30 p.m. in Hawaii (9:30 p.m. here on the East Coast).
The lunar eclipse begins at 8:43 p.m. on the East Coast and
should be visible wherever you can get a clear sky and with
minimal lights.
Here in the Keys, stargazers favor West Summerland Key
for pitch-black skies furthest removed from annoying city
lights.
In Marathon, a walk out to Pigeon Key on the old bridge
reduces the amount of light spillover from shore, which makes
sky gazing there better than in town.
For Key West residents, it's hard to get away from ambient
light overhead, so a trip out to the golf course or the shoreline
behind Florida Keys Community College's main campus on
Stock Island helps dim distracting lights.
In the Upper Keys, there are plenty of sky-dark areas. For
best viewing, just get as far from Overseas Highway commer-
cial streetlights as you can.
And what will you see tonight if skies are clear?
Miami Herald senior writer Martin Merzer quotes Jack
Horkheimer, planetarium director of the Miami Science
Museum, who also hosts "Star Gazer" on WPBT, the national
public television affiliate serving South Florida.
Here's how Horkheimer describes the lunar eclipse on tap
tonight: "It's a big, huge ballet - a cosmic ballet."
At its peak - which for us will be sometime between 10 to
10:51 p.m. - Earth's shadow will completely cover the lunar
disc, casting a reddish glow in the night sky.
Total eclipses like tonight's are rare, Merzer notes, especial-
ly one visible throughout most of North America, all of South
America and parts of Europe and Africa.
The next time we'll be treated to this big a light show?
December 2010.
Next time the Navy has to shoot an errant satellite out of the
sky? Maybe we'll just be kept in the dark.

Nothing's ever proven evolution as fact


EDITOR:
Seems the Monroe County School Board and
the state should go back to school to learn the
difference between proven fact and laughable
theory. The School Board's vote to accept the
new set of science standards, which includes evo-
lution as fact, is simply preposterous.
I am not concerned that it would conflict with
any religious beliefs. I object that it is itself a
form of religion that has its own required leap of
faith to accept it.
The simple fact is that macro-evolution has
never been observed in either nature or in a labo-
ratory. I have not authored pier-reviewed studies
on genetics but I have read many articles by
geneticists, and the prevailing opinion is that
DNA chains can have omissions, causing defor-
mities and anomalies. But there is no natural
genetic way to add to a sequence, especially to
the point to form totally new and separate
species.
I can accept natural selection as adaptations to
environmental stimulus in regard to color
changes, adult sizes and changes to the senses.
But an amoeba to a man with not one, but multi-
ple, changes of entire species are just unproven
misguided aspects of a philosophy, not a science,
and neither the School Board nor the state should
include an admittedly political issue within the
standards of science.


It is sneaky, underhanded political pandering
and will only serve to confuse our kids (and
many adults) that consensus is acceptable in the
place of an exhaustively tested scientific hypothe-
sis where the data collected and the conclusions
reached will be reviewed and challenged for the
sake of scientific accuracy.
For School Board member (Debra) Walker to
suggest that since we weren't taught evolution in
school we are somehow less qualified to form our
own opinion based on educating ourselves out-
side the educational/indoctrination system and
engage in a thoughtful opposing viewpoint is elit-
ist, fallacious and insulting. Seems to me that a
Ph.D in archaeology doesn't qualify one to make
policy regarding either the science of genetics or
the religion of evolution.
The saddest part is with the adoption of the
new standards including the emotionally charged
topic of evolution, no other aspects of the propos-
al were reported on and I for one would be very
interested in just what other changes are being
proposed for our kids' consumption.
Nick Antonelli
Marathon

Editor's note: The state Board of Education on
Tuesday voted for the new science standards but
using the phrase "scientific theory" to describe
evolution.


Board votes in favor of indoctrination


EDITOR:
It's ironic how things never seem to change
when it comes to educating the next generation.
The Monroe County School Board has decid-
ed that science can be voted into fact much like
the 1925 Tennessee Legislature did in passing the
Butler Act. That act stated that it shall be unlaw-
ful for any teacher to teach any theory that denies
the story of the divine creation of man as taught
in the Bible, and to teach instead that man has

2010 can be extended
EDITOR:
It seems to me we worry needlessly about
the state's arbitrary sewering deadline.
Whenever a government body dictates an
expensive, largely unfunded project, the com-
pletion date cannot be set in cement.
We are now in a recession that promises to
match that of 15 or 20 years ago. And many are
moving out of the Keys. Marathon's city attor-
ney could probably make a good case for
extending the goal out beyond 2010. Thus. if
promised state financial help was in doubt for
two years, the deadline would be extended for
two years and so on. Smart lawyers know how
to pile on motions sufficient to delay implemeti-
tation orders almost indefinitely.
Bullying attempts at compliance by way of
per-diem penalties could be met with counter-
penalties for failure of the state to meet its part
of the agreement.

descended from a lower order of animals.
This act brought about the Scopes trial. The
nation watched as it was made clear that true sci-
ence and discovery can only flourish when all
possible information is on the table and available
for debate. This is not so much a question of sci-
ence v. religion, but religion v. religion.
Those with personal, dogmatic beliefs that
claim science as their guiding light are no differ-
ent than the Tennessee Legislature of 1925. True
science is about truth and is not afraid of fallacy.
Intolerance in education is indoctrination.

Fundraisers show traffic's no impediment


EDITOR:
Two major fundraising events
recently occurred at St. Paul's
Episcopal Church in Key West.
On Jan. 14. more than 700 people
attended the Friends of Franko
Richmond concert. About $16,100
was raised. On Jan. 21, more than
300 people attended the Red Barn
Theatre benefit directed by David
Troy Francis. More than $4,200 was
raised at this event toward their piano
project.
Both events were artistic triumphs.
Many people, especially tourists,
responded they were in awe of the
performance skills of our community.
There was a feeling of compassion
and good will that will not be forgot-
ten. All of the money raised went to
Franko for his continuing medical
treatment and to the Red Barn
Theatre.
More than 1000 people attending
weekday evening performances at the
height of the tourist season dispels the
oft-repeated opinion that residents and
tourists won't come into town because
there is no place to park their car.
I want to extend a heartfelt thank


you to all of the marvelous perform-
ers who donated their time and talent.
I also want to thank the St. Paul's vol-
unteers who helped collect money,
sell CDs, set up and remove chairs,
usher and provide cleanup for these
events including Mark Annicelli,
Chuck Hammond, David Sweeting,
Irene Eyer, Lennie Whitley. Joe
Mather, Caroline Ford, Jim Hall, Bill
Cartledge, Susanne Woods and Anne
Shaver. I thank Father David and
Sandy Wilt and the St. Paul's parish
for hosting these community events.

Thanks for prayers

To everyone who helped out or

'Gang of three' marches to different beat


EDITOR:
How many affronts can the citi-
zens tolerate from the three-vote
bloc on the County Commission?
Over the past two years, we have
seen a long line of resignations from
county government, including
department directors. I won't bother
to list them, as there are many.
The most glaring is the resigna-
tion of [appointed] Planning
Commissioner Sherry Popham.
Popham was like a breath of fresh
air. She was very well prepared on
every issue that came before the
Planning Commission, listening
intently and asking pertinent ques-
tions, and then applying the relevant
law from the land development reg-
ulations and Monroe County code.
Commissioner Popham is intelli-

Puto's got heart
EDITOR:
It's not often that we are fortunate
enough to know someone who has
such a good, caring heart that when
he sees a need, is always ready to
help-family, friends and strangers
simply because it is the right thing to
do. Outgoing Marathon City
Manager Mike Puto is that person.
Thank you to Mr. Marathon for his
service to our city. We do, in fact,
feel the love.

gent, articulates her position clearly
based on the law and gives a reason
for her position.
In contrast, Commissioner Dixie
Spehar is ready to vote and some-
times offers a motion even before
discussion is complete, giving the
impression that her mind has
already been made up beforehand.
She seems to be acting as an advo-
cate for development interests. We
will miss Commissioner Popham on
the Planning Commission.
At the last County Commission
meeting, several revisions to a pro-
posed ordinance were presented at
the last minute to the commission.
The ordinance to preserve working
waterfront was drafted by two local
attorneys, including Jerry Coleman,
who represents Robbie's Marina.
The three commissioners that voted
for it did not even read it before
casting their votes. So much for
transparency, due process and sound
public policy. This outrage led to
the resignation of Commissioner
Popham.
Going in one direction is the
public, Growth Management, the
state Department of Community
Affairs and the taxpayers. In the
other direction is the Gang of Three
marching to its own drummer and
listening to the siren call of devel-
opers.

The Philadelphia Brass' performances for Keys kids were a huge hit, the writer says.

Switlik kids get a taste of jazz


EDITOR:
The Middle Keys Concert Association
recently sponsored two outreach programs
for our local school children featuring the
Philadelphia Brass. a quintet of profession-
al musicians from eastern Pennsylvania.
Two programs were held the afternoon
of Jan. 15 at Stanley Switlik Elementary
School for all the grades, kindergarten to
six. Everyone - students and teachers -
was very interested and appreciative.
I wish to thank Principal Barbara
Wright and music teacher Suzanne Terpos


for arranging the schedule. Thanks also to
Assistant Principal Brett Unke and middle
school/high school Band Director Stephen
Whitfield for their assistance that after-
noon.
Thanks also to the teachers who escort-
ed the students and to the students who
responded so eagerly to the five musi-
cians' commentary and music. A wonder-
ful learning and musical experience was
enjoyed.

Shakespeare in the park a cultural delight


EDITOR:
Last Saturday night. 1 had the privilege
of watching a brilliant production of
Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew"
brought to the TIB Amphitheater at
Founders Park by ICE (Islamorada
Community Entertainment). 1 want to thank
every ICE board member, founder and vol-
unteer for the vision and commitment that
led to this event. It enriched the cultural life
of our island community beyond measure.
The production was so physical and the
young company so talented that
Shakespeare's beautiful language was never
a barrier to understanding or thorough enjoy-
ment. My friend's 9-year-old daughter loved
it, as did the teenagers I saw attending.
There was much music before the show,
much laughter and good-natured mayhem
running throughout, and when Kate and
Petruchio, the shrew and the woman-taming
suitor, finally kissed, the amphitheater
exploded into applause. This must have
been the way it played in Shakespeare's
day. The venue could not have been more


perfect.
As I looked at the delighted faces of the
audience, heard the positive comments how
happy people were to have such high-quali-
ty entertainment in their own backyard, how
some had driven up from Marathon and
some down from Homestead. I hoped the
people bringing this to us would not be dis-
couraged and would continue their mission.
There is no way the 200 or so people
who paid $20 each to attend ($10 for stu-
dents) would ever be able to fund such an
offering (the company also performed to
enthusiastic response at the Coral Shores
High School. Most of those students will
have seen their first and only real
Shakespeare there. Some of those students
may be changed forever by the experience).
With luck, fortitude and community sup-
port, ICE will maintain its generosity and
high standards and bring such high-caliber
entertainment as the Shakespeare players
back to us again.

Airport grant


up for approval


Keynoter Staff


A $950,000 Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation grant for
work on the new passenger ter-
minal at Key West International
Airport is part of a list of unantic-
ipated revenues and expenses
that will be approved by the
Monroe County Commission
today.
The commission convenes at
9 a.m. at the Key Largo library.
The regular monthly meeting will
be televised on Comcast Channel
76 and on the county's Web site.
The money for the terminal, a
$31.6 million project overall, is
no surprise, according to the
county's acting budget director,
Tina Boan.
To provide accurate book-
keeping, grants are not adopted
into the regular annual budget.


Instead, they are approved as
unanticipated revenue at the time
the county actually receives
them, says Boan.
Construction on the McCoy
Terminal Complex has been
under way since 2006. County
Engineer David Koppel says he
hopes it will be open this sum-
mer.
The county borrowed $30.3
million to pay for the project.
According to the bond, the
Federal Aviation Administration
will provide $4.6 million in
grants and DOT will provide $8.7
million.
Airport officials anticipate
more than $24 million from pas-
senger service fees to pay off the
remainder of the loan.

WASTEWATER PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT


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

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

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

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

Coroner explores job options

Hunter on list
for ME position

With only a month to go until
the new county medical examin-
er's building opens, Monroe
County Coroner Michael Hunter
is on the list for the job of med-

Hunter and three others will
be under scrutiny today by a Bay
County search committee look-

county's coroner, Dr. Charles
Siebert Jr., who left at the end of
December.
"I just provided an applica-

Tuesday. "I'm just considering it
at this point. I'm honestly quite
happy with my position here."


The $4 million medical
examiner's building on Crawl
Key will likely be finished by
mid-March, according to County
Engineer David Koppcl.
Approval to extend the com-
pletion date is up for approval
today during the County
Commission meeting at the Key

convenes at 9 a.m. The change
order to the original contract
with Fointiciella Construction
Corp. is on the commission's
bulk agenda. The company seeks
a 21-day extension on the com-
pletion due to rainy weather.

commission that the delays
occurred early in the construc-

State again seeks

Allstate ban


OIR files
new complaint
against firm
Miami Herald

The state's Office of
Insurance Regulation has filed a
formal complaint against
Allstate Floridian Insurance and
nine sister companies, asking to
suspend the insurer's license to
write new business in Florida.
OIR had filed an emergency
order Jan. 16. Allstate appealed
that order to the state Court of
Appeals, which granted the
insurer a temporary stay. The
emergency order is now in the
hands of a district court judge.
Florida Insurance Commis-
sioner Kevin McCarty took
action because Allstate hadn't
fully complied with a subpoena
for documents that was issued in
mid-October.
This complaint will go before
the Division of Administrative
Hearings and will be decided by
an administrative judge.


A spokesman for the OIR
said these proceedings could
move along faster. Allstate's
appeal in the Court of Appeals
could take up to 18 months to
resolve.
The new complaint is based
in part on Allstate's failure to
provide witnesses and docu-
ments as subpoenaed by the
office, falsely labeling subpoe-
naed documents as trade secrets
and falsely certifying its rate fil-
ings, Insurance Commissioner
Kevin McCarty said.
"Seeking to suspend a com-
pany's license is not something
we take lightly," General
Counsel Steve Parton said.
"However, in light of their defi-
ance of the Florida Insurance
Code, we think it is necessary to
make the point that actions such
as we have seen by Allstate will
not be tolerated."
If upheld, the order would
apply to all Allstate companies
on which the subpoenas were
served.

Marathon team
first in state,
off to nationals
A five-student team from
Marathon High School has won
the State LifeSmarts Champ-
ionship at the Florida State Fair
in Tampa.
Monday, Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles
Bronson congratulated the team
and awarded a check for $4,400
to be used to defray travel expens-
es when the team and its coach
vie for the national LifeSmarts
title in Minneapolis in April.
Team members were Michael
Koppel, Elizabeth Pape, Gabriela
Hemandez, Andrew Vassil and
James Joseph. Teacher Kathy
Loggie served as coach.
Baker High School placed
second and Universal Academy
in Tampa was third.
LifeSmarts is an educational
program that challenges students
in grades nine to 12 in areas
about personal finance, health
and safety, the environment,
technology and telecommunica-
tions, and consumer rights and
responsibilities.
LifeSmarts competitions are
run in a game-show style. It's
designed to help teenagers
become better decision makers
and savvier consumers. They
learn about their rights and
responsibilities as consumers and
how to spot and avoid scams.
The Florida online competi-
tion involved more than 40
coaches with more than 440 stu-
dents from public and private
high schools, 4-H clubs and
home schools. The Internet com-
petition ran continuously from
Sept. 1 until Jan. 11. From there
the finalists headed to Tampa for
the finals in person.
The national coordinating
group for the LifeSmarts pro-
gram is the National Consumers
League. Founded in 1899, the
league is a national nonprofit that
identifies, protects, represents
and advances the economic and
social interests of consumers and
workers through education and
advocacy., ,' . '

State takes Harris off buy list


Acevedo says
district now
weighs options
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean() keynote r.co in

Next week, it's official.
The state will remove the
historic Harris School in Key
West from its Florida Forever
acquisition list, a designation
that once could have infused
the Monroe County School
District with $5.4 million in
cash.
Tuesday, the Florida
Cabinet, sitting as the Board of
Trustees of the Internal
Improvement Trust Fund, will
remove the Harris School from
its list of statewide properties
eligible to receive preservation
funding.
In 2005, the state agreed to
provide the money in conjunc-
tion with a plan by the Rodel
Foundation to upgrade the dete-
riorating but stately building to
create a culinary school, public
auditorium and artist colony.
Now the future of the build-
ing will be up to the communi-
ty, schools Superintendent
Randy Acevedo said.
"We finally got the letter
from the city associating the
[rate-of-growth ordinance] with
the property." Acevedo said.


"Now we'll gel an appraisal,
then talk to the neighbors and
other groups about potential
uses, then formulate a plan."
Acevedo said there are five
market-rate permit allocations
associated with the one-acre
parcel. And though there are
state constraints on what can be
done with the state-designated
historic school building itself,
there's room on the site for new
construction.
Acevedo said there are sev-
eral scenarios that may play
out.
"In one there would be a
partial sale with some of the
property and the ROGOs." he
said. "We'd use the money to
fix up the school for another
capacity."
Another possibility, he said,
would be to sell the entire par-
cel "as a residential estate" if
the neighbors didn't want to see
a public building in their
Southard Street neighborhood.
School and city officials
have played with a myriad of
ideas for the school, including
the possibility of housing a new
city hall.
The School Board's deal
with the state fell apart in 2005
when the state attached a
requirement that would have
forced the district to use the
proceeds of the sale to build

district agreed it needed the

to be locked into using all of
the money to build it.
The building has been close
to empty since 2005, with the
exception of the Monroe

Citizens, which moved out in
August. The School Board
granted a short-term lease to


the Anchors Aweigh Club, a 12-
step group, for a few months
while its Virginia Street loca-
tion was being remodeled. That
group moved out earlier this
month.
The Harris School opened in
1909 as Key West's first high
school. It was named for
Confederate soldier Jepha V.
Harris.

Waterfront


Market has buyer


Pantelis says
sale in danger
due to rules
By SAM NISSEN
snisslen( ke noIlecroIC l'l

Key West's Waterfront Market
sale is close to completion but
faces a hurdle, as the sale must be
approved by a city governing
board.
The Key West Bight
Management District Board does
not accept late additions to its
agenda (it meets today). Newly
appointed Chairman Harry
Bethel said last month the board
should always enforce that rule.
But Waterfront Market owner
Buco Pantelis said the rule com-
plicates or might even negate the
sale of his business to United
Natural Foods.
The board has "got to do
something," he said. He also said
he and representatives of United
Natural Foods plan to attend the
meeting.
Pancelis said he must notify
the board of his plans by the end
of the month and that all of the


information related to the sale is
now available to it. In fact, he
said he missed the agenda dead-
line by only a few hours. Pantelis
hopes the board can hold a spe-
cial meeting or consider his lease
transfer request today.
But city property manager
Marilyn Wilbarger said the dead-
line is important, asthe city legal
staff needs time to review such
requests. The market, a Bight
anchor tenant, is particularly
important and has a complicated
lease, requiring extra review
time, she said. The board review-
ing the lease at today's meeting is
probably not logistically possi-
ble, she said.
Fears that the market might
change after a sale - which
arose last fall when Pantelis
announced plans to close the
business - are unfounded.
Pantelis said. He said United
Natural Foods plans to keep the
general business and enhance it.
Also, the Bight's governing rules
make any abrupt changes to the
business unlikely.
Buildings in the Bight are
leased from the city.

Plan: 'cradle to the grave'


Grand proposal
is designed to
retain residents
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Key West workers should stay
on the island "from the cradle to
the grave," Mayor Morgan
McPherson says.
Or at least from college to the
grave, according to a grant appli-
cation recently sent to the John D.
and Catherine T. MacArthur
Foundation.
McPherson, with the help of
college planning consultant Jim
Hendrick, drafted an application
asking for $2.35 million.
The money would help pay
for professional services for dor-
mitory housing at Florida Keys
Community College, affordable-
to-market-rate housing on land
adjacent to Trumbo Point, and
help with a recently approved
assisted-living facility planned
for four acres at the Truman
Waterfront.
Conceivably, a Key Wester
could learn, work and die in Key
West without facing financial
woes of unaffordable housing
and crippling insurance rates.
But McPherson acknowledges
the competitive nature of the
grant, submitted Jan. 29, and says
he's unaware of how many other
applications have been submitted


and what kind of projects are pro-
posed.
Housing for the college is
among the goals listed, at a price
of about $350,000 for design,
legal and planning services. This
would be applied to a proposed
100-unit dorm intended to house
nearly 200 students at a location
yet to be identified.
The college "intends to create
a public-private partnership to
build and operate that housing,"
the application reads.
Because a state statute pro-
hibits community colleges from
operating dormitories, the land
would be leased to the college
foundation, which would manage
the dorms.
"What we're talking about
doing is creating 360 to 420
units," McPherson said. "And the
ultimate goal is absolutely no dis-
placement."
The plan would call for rede-
velopment of the Porter Place
public housing complex adjacent
to Trumbo Point property, with
more mixed-rate units.
Part of the goal, according to
Hendrick, is to "break loose of
Section 8 housing. What we
know of public housing won't be
here in 10 years," he said.
Sponsors say the project
would be done in phases to avoid
displacement, and would allow
workers to rent or buy units for
prices pegged at about $171,000

Key Wester accused
of passing bad bills

An 18-year-old Key West was
jailed Saturday for allegedly
passing counterfeit $20 bills.
Police spokeswoman Christie
Phillips said Robert Lee Lopez
was arrested around 2 a.m., short-
Iv after he.'etteretH:' Rickls hn


Duval Street and paid for a drink
with a fake $20 bill. Officers
were called and determined it
was indeed counterfeit, she said.
The manager of the bar then
pointed out Lopez, who was by
then on the street.
Officers asked if Lopez had
any cash on him, and he turned
over $495 in real cash, saying it
was the only money he had,
Phillips said. However, while
speaking with Lopez, security
staff from the Lazy Gecko
approached the officers and said
they just discovered two fake $20
bills had been used in their bar.
The bills were consistent with the
original counterfeit bill passed at
the first bar, Phillips said.
After his arrest, officers
reportedly found.10 more coun-
'terfeitbilis'in Lopez's pocket.


for one-bedroom units up to mnar-
ket-rate homes of $550.000 to
$650,000.
Housing for teachers is also
proposed in the application,
which states 187 mixed-income
workforce affordable residences
could replace the parcel that now
serves as a school bus depot and
office now.
That bus farm could be moved
to the Stock Island waste transfer
station when a new waste site is
constructed on Rockland Key.
The Florida Keys Assisted
Care Coalition's assisted living
facility - overwhelmingly
approved in October by Key
West voters - is the final
sequence in the proposed lifetime
Key West living plan.
The home will be on 5.3 acres,
four provided by the city and the
rest provided by Keys Energy
Services. The land is part of 33
acres the U.S. Navy deeded to the
city as part of the federal base-
closure process.
Plans call for the facility to be
run privately, with no city taxes
involved. It will have 40 assisted-
care units and 95 independent-
living units for seniors.

Housing fee on table


Orlando may do
what Keys cities
mulled, dropped
McClatchy Tribune

With foreclosures up and
prices still so high that police
officers and teachers have trouble
buying a home in Orlando, city
leaders are thinking about charg-
ing developers a new fee to raise
money for affordable housing.


If Orlando adopts the fee, it
apparently would be only the sec-
ond city in Florida to do so, join-
ing Winter Park, which embraced
the idea 18 years ago.
In recent years, such fees have
been studied in Marathon, Key
West. Boca Raton and Destin. as
well as Collier. Lee and Palm
Beach counties. So far, none have
been adopted.
"Making sure residents can
afford quality housing is very


important to us." Orlando Mayor
Buddy Dyer said. "Housing has
gotten out of reach for many' peo-
ple. even in the middle class, like
police officers, firefighters and
teachers."
Here is how it would work:
Developers of office buildings,
restaurants, shopping centers, and
other commercial and industrial
projects would pay the so-called
"linkage fee" based on project
size when they apply for a build-

Cracked Egg Cafe
Big Pine Key

After a year of stops and
starts, the Cracked Egg Cafe
has reopened in its former
location at mile marker 30.3.
Owners Ricky Cannon
and Helen Goodiski have
signed a three-year lease on
their old place in front of the
Big Pine Motel.
"It's been. overwhelming,
really." Cannon said. "I think
[our customers] missed us a
lot, because everybody and
their brother has been com-
ing in here nonstop. We can
barely keep up, but that's a
good problem to have."
"This is like a little old
country place and we've got
something for everybody,"
Cannon said. "Bacon and
eggs, breakfast enchiladas,
eggs benedict, pancakes.
stuffed French toast - then
for lunch we have sandwich-
es, salads, meatloaf, liver
and onions, things like that.
It's stuff you can pronounce.
and you know what it is."
The Cracked Egg origi-
nally closed because its lease
was up and a real estate deal
on the property was pending.
Cannon said that deal has
since fallen through. Then, a
stint at Captain Crossbones
on Summerland Key ended
when that restaurant closed.
"We've got a three-year
lease now, so I'm covered,"
Cannon said. "It all seemed
to work out somehow."
The Cracked Egg Cafe
serves breakfast and lunch
daily from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.,
but the owners plan to offer
dinner, beer and wine in the
near future.

Orlando tries option considered in the Keys

ing permit. The money would go
into a fund used to bring down
the cost of building homes ear-
marked for low-income buyers.
Orlando officials plan to con-
duct a study during the next few
months to figure out how much

the fee should be, and developers
are sure to weigh in.
Winter Park charges 50 cents
per square foot on all new con-
struction, renovations and addi-
tions, including residential prop-
erty. So, the fee adds $1,000 to
the cost of a 2,000-square-foot
house.
"Winter Park had zero afford-
able-housing units constructed
when the fee was adopted,"
Winter Park Planning Director
Jeff Briggs said.
The fee now brings in about
$600,000 a year, and with an
increase in the per-square-foot
rate, has raised $2.5 million so


far.
Winter Park has used the
money to buy 36 lots for Habitat
for l-umanity and the lannihal
Square Community Land Trust,
help build mixed-income apart-
ments, and pay for renovations of
a subsidized apartment building
for the elderly.
Linkage fees haven't spread in
Florida.
They're most common in
California, New Jersey and
Massachusetts, where they vary
widely, from a low of 27 cents
per square foot for one type of
development in Sacramento to a
high of $19.89 in San Francisco.


It's an attractive idea to offi-
cials in Orlando, where property-
tax cuts and a slumping economy
mean there's not much left for
affordable-housing projects.
"You really need resources to
make changes, and our resources
are declining," housing director
Lelia Allen said.
Still, it's far from a done deal.
After finishing the study, city
officials still must bring the pro-
posal back for City Council
approval.
Orange County's Workforce
Housing Task Force recommend-
ed a county linkage fee last year.
and panel member Terry


Delahunty said the fees can work.
But the land-use attorney also
heads the Central Florida chapter
of the National Association of
Industrial and Office Properties,
and its members would prefer
that linkage fees be voluntary.
Some developers would
choose to pay the fee in exchange
for permission to build at a high-
er density than would otherwise
be allowed by city code, he said.
"If you put unreasonable bur-
dens on commercial real estate,
you run the risk of it going to
Georgia or North Carolina,"
Delahunty said.


Preferred Hotels & Resorts
has hired Signe Bjorndal as its
new director of sales and mar-
keting for Hawk's Cay Resort
on Duck Key and Joni Barkley
as director of sales, according to
Managing Director Stephen
Bello.
Bjorndal is formerly sales
and marketing director at
Cheeca Lodge in Islamorada.
Prior to Hawk's Cay, Barkley
spent eight years as sales and
-marketing director for the Casa
Monica Hotel in St. Augustine.
Hawk's Cay is undergoing a
$35 million renovation of its
177 rooms, lobby area, veranda
and sun terrace.
Meanwhile, the Kessler
Collection has named former
Hawk's Cay General Manager
Tom Cherniavsky the general
manager of its Casa Monica
Hotel in St. Augustine, replac-
ing Marc Bauer. Cherniavsky
most recently was interim man-
ager of the Wyndham
Westshore Hotel in Tampa.
Before that, he was general
manager of Hawk's Cay for 22
years.

Paradise found


Garden clubs team up for weekend tours
By ALYSON CREAN ot .c' "'
acrean@key[noter.comn I M W r.' . ';;


It's often hard to guess at
the wonders that lie behind
fences and walls in Key West.
That secret nature of its tropi-
cal gardens is, in fact, one of
the island city's charms. But
occasionally homeowners
throw open their doors to share
the magic.
This weekend, five of the
island's lushest gardens will be
open for tours as part of
Gardenfest Key West.
"This is the first time in 60
years that the Garden Club and
the Key West Botanical Garden
Society have teamed up for an
event," said Carolann Sharkey.
director of the Stock Island-
based Key West Tropical
Forest and Botanical Garden.
The event runs Friday
through Sunday, kicking off
with a wine tasting and plant-
sale preview at the Botanical
Garden, 5210 College Road, at
5 p.m. Friday.
Saturday and Sunday. both
the Botanical Garden and the
Garden Club, at the West
Martello Tower on Higgs
Beach, will feature plant sales,
tours and workshops for gar-
deners.
But the highlight for many
will likely be the garden tours.
Starting at 10 a.m. Saturday
and again Sunday, the tour
kicks off at the West Martello.
From there, the free shuttle
tours five private gardens, then
finishes up at the Botanical
Garden.
The private oases this year
are:
* 1401 Tropical Ave. The
home of Jimmy Olsen, a board
member of the Trophia
Foundation. The extensive gar-
den features gingers, unusual
bromeliads, birds of paradise
and a palm-encrusted pool.
* 1418 Leon' St., the home
of Michael Miller. This new
garden proves that you don't
have to wait a lifetime for trop-
ical abundance.
* 1800 Atlantic Blvd. This
beachfront garden is a treat for
anyone that thinks this com-
plex is all about tie indoors.
* 2803 Seidenberg Ave.. the


home of landscape designer
Patrick Tierney. Newly
redesigned after Hurricane
Wilma. some may remember
some surviving orchids and
bromeliads high in the trees.
* 2915 Patterson Ave., the
home of Mark and Nan Lindas.
This garden, like so many oth-
ers, was devastated by Wilma
in 2005. but some plants, like a
fabulous cycad, did survive.
The new garden is divided into
outdoor rooms, one of which
includes a fish pond.
In past years, the two garden
clubs have celebrated this
spring event separately.
Sharkey and Key West Garden
Club President Rosi Ware say
they're thrilled at making this a
joint endeavor.
"I just love the fact that we
are making this happen." Ware
said.
Though the gardens are in
the Lower Keys. Sharkey says
she's particularly excited that
all of the Keys will be in on it:
a Keyswide shuttle will run
from Key Largo Saturday at 8
a.m. She says the luxury motor
coach will return to Key Largo
at 6 p.m.; the round-trip fare is
$30. For information or to
reserve a seat, call Tamnalha
Betchel at 942-3721.


This weekend's Gardenfest gives garden lovers a chance to
enjoy two public gardens, the Botanical Garden and the
gardens at the West Martello, as well as tours of five private
gardens in.Key West.

rmccarthy@ keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
baseball team had a rough time,
albeit against stiff competition, at
the Key West Classic this past
weekend.
The Dolphins lost three
games by a combined 30-5, with
many of those runs surrendered
as a result of poor defensive play.
"Overall, defense was a huge
letdown for us this weekend."
coach Luis Leal said. Marathon
committed 19 errors in the three
games.
First up for the Dolphins was
a Thursday matchup against
West Boca Raton High School,
the third-ranked team in the Palm
Beach Post local rankings. The
Class 5A team overmatched
Marathon, 10-0, with the game
being called after five innings
due to the Florida High School
Athletic Association 10-run
mercy rule.
As would be the theme for the
weekend, Leal said the Dolphins
made a series of errors at inop-
portune times.
Sophomore pitcher Thomas
Ryan threw the entire game for
the Dolphins and gave up just
eight hits and two walks. Only

Meyers added that he'total-

Royal Lion runners on base.
"We walked too many and
had a few timely miscues."

Whe, the title that had eluded
him as a sophomore and junior

"It was a huge thrill, a real

Moeller, who will remember
Major not only for his talent (99-

he comported himself. "He has so
much respect," the coach said.
"Referees came up to me and said
what a lass act he is."
Saturday had been a long day
for Major, who had won two
matches on Friday. He ran a mile

A fundamental lapse cost the

a weekend tournament, coach

no one around."
After the Canes lost a 5-1

it "a horrible performance."
Goalie "D.J. Farr played a
good game but he's about the

"We went up 3-0 but let them
catch up and go ahead," Bryan

fought back and closed to within
one goal."
The Canes made a fair share
of errors, he said, but also had
some "tough calls go against us."

Lady Conchs open strong

Diamond squad .
gets 2 victories,
stops Dolphins
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


With four new players in its
starting lineup and three others at
new positions, the Key West
High School softball team
opened the season at home over
the weekend with a solid 7-3 vic-
tory over Monsignor Pace and a
13-7 triumph over Marathon that
the Conchs probably would pre-
fer to forget.
The Conchs, who defeated
Pace for the District 16-4A title
last spring, dominated the
Spartans again on Friday night
before more than 100 fans.
A leadoff double by second
baseman Jianna Hemandez, a
single by Kristen Babich and a
two-run single by Lauren Wells
got Key West off to a 2-0 start in
the first inning.
Pace came back in the second
to tie the game, 2-2, on three hits
and a sacrifice fly. That was the
only ineffective inning for junior
pitcher. Lindsay Yochum. who
threw 60 pitches (48 strikes) in
the game and gave up one hit the
last four innings.
After right fielder Gigi
Orofino's double sparked a two-
run Key West second, the Conchs
added another run in the third on
singles by Wells and Madison
Disson and a groundout RBI by
Orofino.
Orofino and third baseman
Disson are new to the lineup, as
are left fielder Sarah Rodriguez
and catcher Natalie Dudley.
Wells has switched from right
field to first base, Babich has


switched from left field to center
and Kayla Reams has moved to
shortstop from third base.
The Conchs got their final two
runs in the fifth, thanks to three
errors by the Pace shortstop.
Pace's third run came in the
sixth when a runner scored from
third on Disson's wild throw over
the head of the 6-foot Wells.
For the most part, the Conchs
were solid on defense Friday
night.
And then came Saturday after-
noon and a three-hour ordeal
against Marathon in which they
committed six errors, including
two by the usual sure-handed
Hemandez.
But the Dolphins, who were
playing their season opener, were
even worse defensively, commit-
ting seven errors.
"It wasn't a pretty game; well-

fought, but not pretty," Marathon
coach Andrea Murphy said. "The
biggest positive was we kept
fighting back."
Marathon trailed 8-6 going
into the bottom of the sixth, but
Key West pulled away with five
runs in the inning.
Rodriguez led Key West's
attack against Dolphin pitcher
Megan Gardner with two singles
and a double, while Hemandez
and Wells each had two hits.
Gardner pitched a complete game
for Marathon, and Murphy said
she did a good job not getting rat-
tled.
Marathon got five hits against
Yochum, with Shelby Kuck and
Samantha Rodamer each going
2-for-4 from the plate.

Other than a windy and
rainy day early this week, it
was pretty much a carbon
copy of last week with
regard to the catching.
The yellowtail snapper
are biting well and the sail-
fish are good one day and
gret another. The salvation
for when the sails are not
cooperating is the king
mackerel. Captains are
finding ballyhoo and
pilchards-pretty easily, and
both baits work well on the
kings. Anglers are baiting
with the lives and, with the
aid of one or two 8-ounce
sinkers, drifting the bait
just a little off the bottom.
A pretty nice twist to the
former technique is the use
of Speedos as bait. A hoop
net is required to get the
chubby baits and a ha-ha
rig with wire is used the
sarpe as with the smaller
baits.

The best rod-bending
action one will have is still
on the Spanish mackerel.

King thin

Tourney chief
sees tournaments
going big-time
While zooming around the
Miami Boat Show Thursday, I
had the chance to catch up with
Chris King who, with Capt. Mike
Weinhofer, is the brainchild
behind the World Sailfish
Championship held every April
in Key West. I made the mistake
of asking Chris, "What's new?" I
should have known better.
It's no secret there are a lot of
sailfish tournaments in Florida.
Some aim to raise money for a
certain charity while others aim
to make competitors very rich.
One thing is for certain: Putting
tournaments together can be
downright competitive at times
between the directors of the larg-
er tournaments.
All aim at attracting the
anglers, sponsors, cash and top
marinas, as well as the press and
prestige. Most directors will be
forthright with honesty in admit-
ting it's tireless work with some-
times no profit as a reward. Some
sailfish tournaments are envi-
sioned and then dead in the same
year.
Well, King wants to do some-
thing about that, and his track
record speaks for itself.
King is co-founder, chairman
and executive director of the
World Sailfish Championship.

Idol the

King believes billfish tourna-
ments can reach the level of pop-
ularity of the major sports. He
believes that by organizing, a la
Major League Baseball, the sport
of fishing can assure its own suc-
cess and survivability.
"Right now we are at the start-
ing point of getting corporate
America of looking at fishing as
a serious sport," he says (the
International Game Fish
Association puts fishing as the
No. 1 participatory sport in
America). "Golf. NASCAR,
Major League Baseball and other
pro sports all got together at one
point and said, Hmm. even
though we are competing against
each other and doing this on our
own, let's do it together. Or at
least help each other out as
opposed to thinking of each other
as competition.
"Each tournament will still be
competitive as is each baseball
team and every NASCAR driver,
but at the end of the day, every-
body achieves more as a team
than they do individually."
Asked how an initial meeting
went Friday with the big players
in Florida's sailfish tournaments


'League

to propose this idea. King said,
"We had representatives present
... from most of the major sailfish
tournaments - Miami Billfish,
World Sailfish Championship.
Mayors Cup, Sailfish Kick-Off,
Sailfish Cup, the folks from Bay
Point, the Emerald Coast, among
others. Everyone brought their
ideas and thoughts about getting
together and organizing and col-
lectively working together to
make the industry better. 1
thought it went off very well."
King brought up ideas such as
buying group insurance, group
buys of advertising, having a
blueprint for startup tournaments
and a television crew for filming.
But King's biggest, goal is the
major corporate sponsors.
"When you see a golf tourna-
ment on TV, it's not brought to
you by Titleist or Spalding: it's
brought to you by Hartford
Insurance or GMC. That's the
psyche we need to make this
work."
Who knows, maybe one day
in the not-too-distant future we'll
be watching the World Sailfish
Championship on NBC Sunday
afternoons with Brent Musburger
and John Madden reporting live
from Key West. If that makes
you smirk, don't let King catch
you.
By the way, mark your calen-
dars now for the World Sailfish
Championship April 15 to 19th
in Key West. It already has 100
boats of a possible 110-boat field
registered. Don't wait to get
involved; go to www.worldsail
