Messages left
on woman's own
business cards
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.com

Police are keeping a watchful
eye over a Key Largo woman
who says she's received several
threatening notes after being
attacked in her home by a
stranger more than a week ago.
The 30-year-old woman said
that since she was attacked by a
man who followed her to her
house, threatening messages
have been left at her home, her
mother's home and a location
related to her work - each one
handwritten on the back of one of
her own business cards.
She said she's thankful for
extra surveillance from officers
from the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office who she said are
parked outside her home every
night, and for friends and family
who have not left her side.
"They've been following me
wherever I go," the woman said
of deputies.
The Sheriff's Office released

Bruce Popham negotiated
with the company between June

"They were going after

our mantra has always been the
same: Preserve the working
waterfront."


E-mail communications
between Cay Clubs representa-

remain a boat yard for five years
after the sale.

Burnett drops politics


Mayor hopes

Marathon post
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy @ckeynoter.conm

Key Colony Beach Mayor
Clyde Burnett put an end to all
the speculation Thursday by
withdrawing from the race for


City Commission and announc-
ing plans to pursue the position of
Marathon city manager.
Burnett's name first surfaced
last July. after some on the
Marathon Council said they were
unhappy with current City
Manager Mike Puto's perform-
ance. When Puto tendered his
resignation Feb. 12, rumors again
began swirling regarding


Burnett's interest in the job.
The Marathon City Council is
scheduled to discuss recruitment
and transition strategies for the
job in a special meeting Tuesday
at the Marathon Government
Center at 5 p.m. Burnett said he
will wait to see what comes of the
meeting and hopes he will be
considered.

Gas-tax plan fails 4-1


By ALYSON CREAN
aclrean (�ikeynoler.coln


Monroe County voters won't
have a chance to decide whether
they want to OK a 6-cent increase
in gas taxes, at least this year
County staffers beseeched the
County Commission at its
Wednesday meeting to hold a
public hearing and explore a pos-
sible increase in gas taxes that
would be used to pay for road and
bridge repairs. But the commis-
sion voted 4-1 against holding a
hearing on the issue.
County Engineer David
Koppel told the commission there
won't be enough money by next
year to repave some 400 miles of
county roads or fix the 28 bridges
the county owns.
"If you don't pass this for a
public hearing process, which
would leave it up to the public."
County Attorney Suzanne Hutton
said, "then it will be 2010 at the


earliest that we would be able to
collect any money. We won't he
able to, in June, decide, oh, that
was a big mistake. It will be too
late."
Sylvia Murphy's was the sole
vote against potentially collecting
6 cents more in gas taxes at the
Key Largo meeting.
Hutton was seeking approval
to advertise two ordinances, one
imposing a 5-cent increase to the
local-option gas tax and the other
adding a ninth cent to another gas
tax.
The two taxes were estab-
lished in the 1980s. One collects
6 cents on gas while the other
applies primarily to diesel fuel.
But the county has the ability to
add a ninth penny to that tax and
apply the tax to all types of fuel.
"1 definitely oppose this tax,"
said Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro. who made the motion


to deny a public hearing. "This
county is burdened enough by
taxes."
"There is nowhere else to get
money to fix the roads," said
Murphy. "We are one of very few
counties that have not gone to the
max [in what the state allows the
county collected in gas tax.]"
In the meantime, the commis-
sion gave Neugent a grudging
nod to continue exploring a pos-
sible 1-cent sales tax that could
be used to help pay for local sew-
ers.
The county and municipalities
are under a state mandate to
install sewers by 2010, and
Neugent says a sales tax would
raise some $30 million for that
annually. In addition, he says it
would allow tourists to share the
financial burden of the sewers,
which are estimated to cost some
$500 million by the time they're
all completed.


'We still need marine facilities'


POPHAM / From 1

to go," Popham said, "and we
were confident the city and
county would pass legislation in
that timeframe."'
Popham's wife Sherry
resigned from the Monroe
County Planning Commission
Feb. 5, one day after the County
Commission passed what she
calls a watered-down version of
a waterfront preservation law.
Bruce Popham is president of
Southern Exposure Associates
Inc., which owns the boat yard.
Sherry is an officer but says she
is "not a major shareholder."
Sherry Popham served on the
county Planning Commission
from February 2006 until her
resignation. She was one of the
major architects of the water-
front ordinance.
Attorney Jerry Coleman, who
represents Robbie's Marina on
Stock Island, filed an ethics
complaint against Popham Feb.
13 alleging her work on the ordi-
nance could have put her hus-
band's boatyard at an unfair
competitive advantage if passed
as written by the Planning
Commission.
That's because it would not
be affected since it's in
Marathon and the waterfront law


is for the unincorporated areas.
Coleman says tighter county
regulations would have driven
business to the Popham's boat
yard, thereby creating a conflict
for Sherry Pophanm for her work
on the ordinance.
The argument is illogical,
Popham has argued, since
Robbie's would be more com-
petitive if it remains a boat yard.
In 2004, Bruce Popham came
before the County Commission,
urging it to fast-track some sort
of preservation law to ensure the
Keys' traditional commercial
fishing industry wasn't lost in
the rush of resort and condo
development represented by
companies like Cay Clubs.
"We were initially surprised
when Tracy Holder, [a now-
deceased] former Cay Clubs rep-
resentative], approached us,
because we were so vocal,"
Bruce Popham said. "Right out
of the box, we said our position,
that keeping it a boat yard would
be a requirement. But he spoke
about how they felt a responsi-
bility to the community and rec-
ognized that we still need marine
facilities."
He sent a letter to Holder in
June 2005 laying out conditions.
"The question for us then
becomes one of moving forward
ourselves or cooperating in sell-


ing this valuable property ... to a
more experienced developer of
impeccable quality who is willing
to meet our conditions and terms
of sale. We believe The Singh Co.
fulfills these objectives."
Cay Clubs and Singh formal-
ly announced a partnership in
March 2006.
According to e-mails sent to
Cay Clubs owner Dave Clark by
a company attorney, Noelle
Melanson. Popham wanted to
close on the sale by January 2006.
"Bruce is ready to sign," she
wrote, adding that Popham
wanted a public disclosure of the
contract to show that Cay Clubs
agreed to retain the existing use
for five years. The move, she
noted, would also ensure
employees they would still have
jobs under the new company.
Popham says that stipulation
is 1vhat eventually killed the deal.
Three years ago. Cay Clubs
hit Monroe County in a flurry,
acquiring or managing dozens of
properties. That came to an
abrupt end last year when the
real estate market was flounder-
ing and the over-extended com-
pany began divesting. It's now a
shell of itself, and there few ref-
erences to it left in the Keys.
Attorney John Wolfe repre-
sents both Bruce Popham and
the Planning Commission.

was an open-air building with large doors to let in

a large, fully enclosed structure. This building,
now vacant, last operated as the Mermaid Club at
1477 Overseas Highway. The garage doors now
hang as the doors at the Seven Mile Grill.

THREATS / From 1

a report Feb. 16 detailing the
attack on the woman, but she
says there are discrepancies
among details included in that
press release and her own
accounts.
The woman said the slew of
unsettling events began when she
left work to go to lunch about 1
p.m. Feb. 15, a Friday.
She said she was walking to
her car, which was parked in her
boss' parking space because he
was away from the office, when
she noticed a man standing next
to a car parked in her usual space.
"He was standing outside his
car looking at me," sho said. "He
made eye contact with me."
The woman said something
seemed strange about the
encounter but that she shrugged it
off and pulled into the south-
bound lane of U.S. 1.
But when she made an imme-
diate U-turn to head north, she
noticed the man was following in
his car, "a silver Ford Taurus with
a University of Miami tag on the
front. It was an older model," she
said.
Aware the car was tailing her,
she said she attempted to make a
left turn into her boyfriend's
place of employment, not far
down the road.
Suddenly the Taurus, which
had been behind her in the turn-
ing lane, drove in front of her car
and stopped, she said, and the
man who'd been driving got out.
The woman said she sped up
and drove around him.
As she pulled into her
boyfriend's workplace, she said
he and his co-workers noticed her
accelerated speed and turned and
looked toward both cars. It was
then that the man, who was still
following her, turned around and
drove away, she said.

Attacked in home
After staying for several min-
utes at her boyfriend's workplace
and seeing no sign of the man or
his car, she drove to her home,
where she went inside and locked
the front door.
But when she opened the front
door to leave the house, the man
was "standing right there" and
forced his way in, she said.
She said she had called her
boyfriend on her cell phone at the
same time that she opened the
door.

"The whole time [her
boyfriend] was listening," she
said. "He heard me screaming
while this guy was throwing me
around the house."
She said the man tore off some
of her clothes in what seemed
like an attempt to rape her.
"I was fighting him as much as
I could, but he was a huge guy."
She continued to scream, and
the intruder eventually fled, she
said.
ThI woman immediately filed
a report with the Sheriff's Office.

Threatening notes
In the week following the
attack, the woman said she found
threatening notes at her home,
her mother's home and at a loca-
tion related to her work.
One time, she said, a note was
left on her car while it was parked
outside her home, while she and
her family were inside.
She said that although the
notes were written on the back of
her own business cards, she does-
n't think the attack was work-
related.
"1 know faces, and I have a
really good memory. I've never
seen him." she said. "Every sin-
gle person that's worked for this
company, we have their name,
their Social Security card and
their address. And any people
i've come in contact with on a
job site, it's always been a posi-
tive experience. 1 don't think he
necessarily was somebody I"
angered.
Nobody saw who delivered
the notes, she said.
The woman said she remem-
bers her attacker as being
between 35 and 40 years old,
with grayish brown hair, a "huge"
stocky build, a thick neck, sun-
glass tan and a big, deep, cleft in
his chin.
She said he was very clean-
shaven, with well-kempt eye-
brows, freckles and "the palest
blue eyes I've ever seen. Scary
pale," she said. "This guy's eyes
are like crystal: you can see right
through them."
The woman said an employee
at the business adjacent to hers
gave detectives an almost identi-
cal description of a man who had
come in two days prior to the
attack, and had asked for "the girl
who works next door."
Anyone with information
should contact the Sheriff's
Office or Crime Stoppers of the
Florida Keys at (800) 346-TIPS.

TURTLE RESCUED: Lower Keys fisherman Marcelino Acosta
Jr. (left), with his brother-in-law and friend Yoel Andres and
Alex Ortega, found this loggerhead sea turtle floating on
its back off Big Pine Key this week, appearing to be dead.
On closer inspection, they discovered it was alive, so they
brought it aboard and called Florida Keys Wildlife Rescue
for help. The turtle was transferred to the Turtle Hospital in
Marathon for treatment. Loggerheads are a threatened
species.


New challenge sought


BURNETT / From 1

table by living here and knowing
the Area of Critical [State]
Concern. There's not a lot of
training that will have to hap-
pen," Burnett said. "I know a lot
of the staff... and hopefully I can
bring some good management
skills."
Burnett has been on Key
Colony's City Commission since
moving to the Keys in 2000 from
Ohio. He was appointed to an
open seat and has won re-elec-
tion three times since.
"I didn't have any intention of
getting involved like I did down
here; it just sort of fell in place.
Here I am 40 years into it and all
that experience has gotten me to
the point I feel capable of seek-
ing this position," Burnett said.
Burnett served as a criminal-
courts director and hearing offi-
cer in his home state for 32 years
and was even a police officer for
seven years prior. He said he is


already familiar with Marathon's
comprehensive plan and land
development regulations.
"It's exciting to face a new
challenge. I'm not ready to hit
the rocking chair yet and 1 still
feel I have a lot to offer," Burnett
said. "If they get to know me,
they'll know I'm a loyal,
dependable guy and I give what-
ever entity I represent 100 per-
cent."
Woodland files
Longtime Marathon resident
Kevin Woodland filed to run for
Marathon City Council Friday.
Woodland sits on the city's
Beautification Committee and
code board and says affordable
housing is a big issue for him.
"I see a lot of people leaving
who grew up here and can't
afford affordable units because
they don't fit the criteria," he
said.
"Bicycle" Joanie Nelson has
also filed to run in the November
election.

Opinion


Patience needed on

U.S. 1 this weekend

Sometimes you read about a car crash that results in fatalities
and you just scratch your head: How could that happen?
So it was when reading the Florida Highway Patrol report on
'last weekend's crash that killed two Homestead men traveling
Card Sound Road.
It happened at 3:40 a.m. last Saturday just north of the
Saunders Bridge.
Quoting from the FHP report, a 1998 sport-utility vehicle was
traveling at a high rate of speed, believed to be in excess of 80
mph.
Now mind you, Card Sound is narrow and shoulders virtual-
ly non-existent for long stretches. There's no place where any-
one can safely travel that fast on that road.
The vehicle skidded on the east shoulder, slammed into a
tree, then flipped over, landing upside down in water up to 5
feet deep.
The vehicle's driver was partially ejected through the left
door window and died upon impact. His passenger apparently
drowned inside the partially submerged vehicle.
And as you may have already guessed, neither man was
wearing a seat belt.
There are lots of reasons to see this as a larger lesson about
excessive speed, youthful excess (one victim was 22 and the
other 26), and ignoring common sense.
Of course, none of that comforts the families who lost loved
ones. And none of that helps if you happen to be an innocent in
another car when one of these crazies comes caroming across
the center lane or ricocheting off guardrails or bridge abut-
ments.
As if speedsters weren't enough of a worry, this time of year
we add heavy seasonal traffic as another be-alert warning.
And today and Sunday, anyone traveling in the Islamnorada
area should be alert for the backups that happen with the very
popular Upper Keys Rotary Nautical Flea Market held at
Founders Park.
The Sheriff's Office put out a public alert Friday, hoping
Keys drivers will pay heed and proceed with caution - and
patience.
Today's flea market runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, the
hours are 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Parking alongside U.S. 1 is always an issue. There will be on-
site parking available for a fee. Even better, park at Coral
Shores High and take the shuttle bus.
Deputies will have stepped-up patrols this weekend because
of all the extra traffic expected, and not just in the Upper Keys.
So remember the advice you got on the day of your first driv-
ing lesson: Slow down - you'll live longer.

Save the palm trees, symbols of the Keys


EDITOR:
How can the Florida Park Service be allowed
to chop down coconut palms in Bahia Honda
State Park (Keynoter, Feb. 16) when they were
removing invasive plants there just because they
have the resources, the time and money to do so?
This unconscionable act is similar to a dentist
pulling out good teeth when extracting rotten
ones nearby simply because the area has been
anesthetized and the dental instruments have
already been disinfected and ready on the tray.
Enough coconut trees have succumbed to
lethal yellowing without the Park Service chop-
ping down (even though only a few) the palms
to further diminish their numbers in the state
park.
Coconut trees can be classified as exotics, but
they are surely noninvasive and should be nur-
tured as the unofficial trademark of the Florida


Keys. Ask any northerner what tree comes to his
or her mind when the Keys are mentioned.
Certainly not the native buttonwood or man-
grove, but the ubiquitous swaying coconut palm.
If the Park Service has enough resources,
time and money, they should instead eradicate
the invasive Burmese pythons that have now
reached Key Largo from the Everglades. It is just
a matter of time before these slithering creatures
arrive in the Lower Keys to feast on Key deer
and on our pets.
Or with the cooperation of the state
Department of Community Affairs, they can con-
trol or eliminate another kind of nasty, invasive
species: The greedy developers who demolish
trailer parks and campgrounds and now threaten
the working waterfront on Stock Island.

Escaped dolphin was searching for freedom


EDITOR:
I was surprised to learn both of the escape of
Wilson the dolphin from the Dolphin
Connection on Grassy Key and of the dolphin's
unfortunate death of starvation ("Dolphin
escapes, found dead." Feb. 19).
As much as I mourn his death, it is comfort-
ing to imagine Wilson's adventures outside of a
tank. For the first time in his life, he was able to
move freely, swim as fast as he liked and dive
Sas deep as he wanted. There were no concrete
walls to stop him. Instead of the noise of water
pumps and trainer's commands, he heard the
sounds of the ocean. As he explored the under-
water world, he felt tides, currents, waves.
In the wild, young dolphins learn from their


mothers and from other dolphins how to live in
the ocean. Wilson was born in captivity and
never learned how to use his sonar to chase and
catch fish. At the Dolphin Connection, instead
of natural behaviors, Wilson learned how to
perform tricks to entertain humans, and to eat
dead fish.
Despite his hunger, Wilson never attempted
to return to the marine park after his escape.
Perhaps freedom was more important?

County Commission should learn to read


EDITOR:
Read Across America Day is March 3rd
and, thanks to the Monroe County
Commission, not one public library in
Monroe County will be open. This is an out-
rage.
The National Education Association began
Read Across America a decade ago to offset a
decline in reading and literacy in this country.
And our county chooses this very day as the
first day to close all the libraries on Mondays.
This is to save money and make up for some
of the past decisions that have put us in this
position.
I wish the Gang of Three would read, par-
ticularly before they vote. But be that what it

Presidential politics still baffling


EDITOR:
Has the presidential election
process changed or am 1 just get-
ting old and senile? After all my
years of life - believe me, it's
been a few - I still haven't fig-
ured it all out. Has anybody else?
I don't even think our candidates
understand it.
Why do some states have cau-
cuses? What's that all about?
Why don't they just go to the
polls and vote? Where do state's
delegates come from and what
do they do other-than attend par-
ties and wear funny hats?
Now they are talking about
super delegates. That's a new one
on me. Who selects them and
what do they do? I suppose they
attend super parties and wear
super funny' hats. What do you
think?
Finally, we have the Electoral


College. Wow, that sounds
impressive, doesn't it? I'm
almost afraid to ask if anyone
knows who they are or what they
do. 1 know one thing - this is
not change.
Why can't they do away with
all of this and let each and every-
one's vote count the way it's sup-
posed to? This is not a novel
idea; it has been discussed many
times before. One person, one
vote, simple majority wins. Most
things are decided that way. Is
that too easy'?
1 have voted all my life and
will continue to do so. But 1 still
can't help but wonder some-
times, does my one little vote
really count? Do you ever won-
der about yours?

Keys kindness shows again


EDITOR:
This is a letter to say thank
you to Specialty Hardware in
Marathon. Let me explain.
I was visiting your fair town
a couple of weeks ago with my
lovely wife and I had an incident
happen. I am an 80-year-old
retired construction worker who
happens to wear a full prosthetic
left leg. I had a rivet pop on the
prosthesis that held a belt that
kept my leg in place, especially
when I sat or drove an automo-
bile. So there being no services
available here or anywhere near-
by, I stopped at your famous
Specialty Hardware.
One of their people looked
high and low to find a stainless


steel bolt, nuts and washers that
I could use to temporarily fix
things. After a while she camen
up with something, put it in a
bag and handed it to me. I asked
what the price was so that I
could pay for it on the way out
but she said with a smile on her
face something like, "Forget it.
It's on the house and have a
good day."
I was very impressed and
want to say a special thank you
to them and your whole town.
We met some very nice people
and I will highly recommend
Marathon and its local business-
es to all my friends.

Many help give 2nd chance at life


EDITOR:
I want to publicly thank the
men and women that saved my
life Feb 2.
Early that morning, Marathon
Fire Rescue responded because 1
was having a very hard time
breathing. They came to my
house, put me on their machines
and gave me medicine, which
unfortunately did not work. By
the time we arrived at Fisher-
men's Hospital's Emergency
Room, my condition had wors-
ened to the point where they
were breathing for me with their
equipment.
I don't remember much after
that. From what I was later told,
I was placed on a ventilator and
flown to Homestead Hospital.


Other doctors have sent me
home and told me nothing could
be done for my condition.
So I want to thank Marathon
Fire Rescue's Capt. Eric Dunford.
Lt. Joe Forcine, fire/medics
Caesar Morton and Javier Perez.
Dr. Lawrence Goldschlager and
the nurses (sorry, I don't know
their nanes), Life Net flight
nurse, Cristina Kreger and flight
medic Kent Padmore. My son
later told me that Mr. Padmore
offered his home to my fainily
while they were in Homestead.
So a big thank you to all for
their dedication to their profes-
sions and giving me a second
chance at life.

Affordability gap even


worse than we thought


Pick the statement below that's not true:
A) 38 percent of Keys homes are vacant.
B) More than half the occupied homes in
Key West are rentals.
C) Single-family home sales in Monroe
dropped more than 50 percent since 2004.
D) The average weekly wage in Monroe
County is under $700.
Have you figured it out'?
OK, it's a trick question because all four of
those facts are true.
And therein lies the biggest surprise froni
the Monroe Housing Needs Assessment
study, recently completed by Florida
International University's Metropolitan
Center.
The housing affordability gap is
even worse than we thought.
Highlights from the Partnership
for Community Housing study
appear as an insert in today's
Keynoter. The same insert was
distributed inside The Reportir
Friday and the Key West Citizen
Wednesday.
Ed Block. Partnership chairman,
championed the effort to gather
real-time data to measure the
housing affordability problem.
With funding provided by the Wayne
Rodel Foundation, the Partnership Keynoter
engaged the services of FIU pro-
fessor Ned Murray, who heads the
Metropolitan Center.
The information they gathered provides a
sobering snapshot of where we are - and.
more ominously - the deep hole we've dug
for ourselves.
"The loss of affordable housing supply as a
consequence of rapid inflation and loss of
rental units is not recoverable." the study
concludes. "Moreover, the demand for sec-
ond 'resort homes' will continue to drive the
market for single-family homes and condos."
And frankly, locals can't compete with
wealthy second-home buyers even when
overall sales activity is cut in half.
Here's why: The economy of the Keys is
driven by service-sector jobs.
As FIU researchers underscore in their
report: "Ninety-one percent of all jobs are in
the lowest-paying industries (accommoda-
tion, food service, retail trade, arts, entertain-
ment and recreation services)."
That explains the low salary average for the
Keys - $695 per week - which is 9 percent
lower than the rest of Florida. And this, mind
you, in the county with the highest housing
costs of any county in the state.
Low wages, high housing costs and nearly
a third of existing housing stock that remains
vacant for much of the year all contribute to a
net loss of our working-age population.
Since 2000, Monroe County has actually
lost population - something which is so
unusual in Florida that it made the national


I

v


news wires when the data was first reported.
Monroe's 6.3 percent drop in resident pop-
ulation since 2000 contrasts markedly with
Florida's 22 percent increase in population
during that same time frame.
It's even worse than that when researchers
focused on adults ages 20 to 54, which
demographers label the "working age group."
In that category, the Keys experienced a 14
percent population drop since 2000.
These are the critical-skill workers that
housing advocates and concerned public offi-
cials keep talking about when they hold yet
another housing summit or similar gathering
to lament "woe is us."
Perhaps we're beyond that.
Interviewed on "Keynoter
News" this week, Block was
asked if the data paints a "scary"
picture for the Keys' economic
future.
"It's beyond scary," he said.
- Quoting from the report: "It will
be difficult to replace younger
worker households given the com-
bination of low wage employment
and high priced real estate."
That, in turn, brings "serious
consequences," the study con-
larkham eludes. "Housing costs make it dif-
Publisher ficult to fill jobs and thus discour-
age businesses from locating to or
expanding in the Keys..Some busi-
nesses may be forced to close or relocate."
There is a second consequence of note:
"The social fabric of municipalities and
neighborhoods is threatened. Many people
cannot afford to maintain existing community
ties or live close to their jobs or extended
families."
And you don't need university researchers
to see that happening. Just ask any of the
youth sports leagues up and down the Keys
and you'll learn about a shortage of volunteer
coaches, refs. even a shortage of players to
make team rosters.
Our housing affordability gap has grown so
deep it simply cannot be bridged by market
forces, Block says.
In the summary he wrote for today's
Partnership report, Block quotes from the
FIU study, warning:
"The biggest challenge of all is to create the
political will to make a concerted assault on
affordability. Making significant headway
will be difficult without the combined efforts
of all levels of government to expand housing
subsidies, create incentives for the private
sector to build affordable housing, establish
land use policies that reduce barriers, and
educate the public about the importance of
affordable housing.

Planned burn put on the warmer


Feds to respond
to the concerns
over rabbits
By PAMELA J. SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor .

Environmental activists
opposing an intentional burn at
the National Key Deer Refuge
on Big Pine Key won what their
attorney calls "a reprieve for the
rabbits" this week when federal
officials agreed to postpone set-
ting the fire they say would
enhance the habitat for endan-
gered Lower Keys marsh rab-
bits.
Jason Totoiu, an attorney for
the Everglades Law Center, said
he and representatives from
Last Stand, the Big Pine Key
Civic Association, the Key Deer
Protection Alliance and Pine
Acres Conservation Association
met with personnel from the
refuge and U.S. Fish & Wildlife
Service for nearly five hours
Wednesday on Big Pine Key.
Totoiu said Fish & Wildlife,
which manages the nation's
refuge system, demonstrated
its' taking the activists seriously
by delaying the fire.
"They decided they will not
have the burn until they have
responded to our concerns,"
Totoiu said. "That could take at
least 30 days, but it could be

Stabbing leads to
Thursday arrest

A Marathon was jailed
Thursday for allegedly stabbing
another man after an argument.
Abel Gutierrez, 35, is
charged with aggravated battery
following the fight with a 22-
year-old at 9:45 p.m. Thursday
at a home on Coco Plum Drive.
Deputy Becky Herrin said
the two got into an argument
that escalated into the fight.
That's when the suspect alleged-
ly pulled out a knife and stabbed
the victim in the upper left chest.
The Sheriff's Office was
called and found the victim
bleeding from the wound. He
was taken to Fishermen's
Hospital and told deputies
where to find the suspect.


longer before they do the burn
because we'll be at the height of
the rabbits' mating season in
March and April. and I doubt'
they'd do it then."
Fish & Wildlife contends the
prescribed burn planned for a
30-acre portion of the refuge on
Big Pine's north side will create
a more suitable habitat for the
rare rabbits, which are known to
live on only a handful islands in
the Lower Keys.
Opponents say the burn is
unnecessary and may actually
harm the diminutive bunnies
and other endangered species.
Refuge Manager Anne
Morkill said that although the
meeting allowed each side to be
heard, there is still a wide
chasm between the two per-
spectives.
"The basic conclusion is that
there's a fundamental difference
in how we perceive this man-
agement action." Morkill said.
"We may never come to an
agreement."
However, Morkill said Fish
& Wildlife is considering the
activists' suggestion to conduct
the burn at an alternate site, and
that possibility will be
addressed in its official

response to the groups' con-
cerns.
In Januaryy, the activists pre-
pared a list of 29 reasons why
the burn should not be conduct-
ed, and asked the Everglades
Law Center for help persuading
Fish & Wildlife to scrap plans
for the fire. Refuge officials had
planned to conduct the burn,
weather permitting, in January
or February.
Totoiu described the meeting
as "cordial and polite," and said
he and the activists are pleased
the burn has been postponed.
But he said they remain con-
cerned because the refuge still
intends to carry it out eventual-
ly.
"We wanted to discuss alter-
natives and we pitched a few
ideas to them, like scaling back
the size of the burn or holding it
at an alternate site where there
are currently no rabbits." Totoiu
said. "But it was frustrating


because I still don't know
where they're coming from.
They still intend to do the burn
-we just don't know when."
Totoiu said he and his clients
would decide what to do next
only after reading Fish &
Wildlife's response, which will
include its rationale for con-
ducting the burn.
"Legal action is always pos-
sible, but I want to resolve this


outside the courts," he said.
"The relationship between
our clients and Fish & Wildlife
has been strained and I want to
see that relationship strength-
ened. There are a lot of other
environmental threats to the
Keys right now, and it's impor-
tant that we all support each
other so we can address those
threats together."

Database shows Keys bridges in good shape


MSNBC creates
comprehensive
search base
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow @keynoter.com

Florida looks after its bridges,
a recent national study found.
Of Florida's 11,561 bridges
listed in the National Bridge
Inventory of the Federal
Highway Administration, only
11 were found to be lagging on a
required every-two-years

inspection schedule, according
to an in-depth project posted on
www.mncb.com earlier this
month.
None of the bridges out of
inspection were in the Florida
Keys.
The MSNBC package
includes a searchable database
and a route-tracker that high-
lights bridges along the way,
along with bridge status as of
2006.
Oddly. the Seven Mvile Bridge
does not appear listed in the Web
site's searchable database as one


of the spans in the Florida Keys.
The Seven Mile Bridge is
safe, and has been fully inspect-
ed, said Frank Guyamier. bridge
engineer for the state
Department of Transportation in
South Florida.
Guyamier suggested because
of the bridge's length and seg-
mental construction.- the Seven
Mile Bridge may have been list-
ed in a separate database not
tapped by the interactive
MSNBC site.

inspections showed potential
problems, he said.
Also not on the MSNBC site
are the Card Sound Bridge and
four smaller bridges along Card
Sound Road. They apparently
were not listed because of a cut-
off point of 10,000 trips per day
for spans in the database.
All bridges along Card Sound
Road have been inspected by
DOT engineers under a contract
with Monroe County, County
Engineer David Koppel said.
"It's the same procedure and
inspection as for DOT bridges."
Koppel said. "We found some
issues, and the most severe of
those are being taken care of
now," he said. "We'll address the
rest in the near future."
In the MSNBC survey, only
the Jewfish Creek Bridge raised
a red flag as being "functionally
obsolete" in terms of not meet-
ing current road standards.


However, its last inspection
certified Jewfish Creek as being
"better than minimum adequacy
to tolerate being left in place as
is."
The 64-year-old draw span at
mile marker 107 is scheduled to
be fully replaced by fall.
' "It won't be long now," said
Patti Jones, spokeswoman for
the U.S. 1 widening project
north of Key Largo.
Traffic is scheduled to be
moved from the old bridge to the
new Jewfish Creek Bridge by
June. The new arching span
should by fully open by October.
Most U.S. 1 bridges in the
Keys carry about 12,000 to
17,000 vehicle trips per day,
according to the survey.
The most heavily traveled
bridge in the Keys: The Salt
Creek Bridge in Key West, with
34,000 daily trips.

Purchase deal
would recoup
county money
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Com-
mission agreed this week to
entertain a $3.1 million offer for
its defunct Stock Island restau-
rant.
In a 3-2 vote, commissioners
agreed to give the owners of
King's Pointe Marina six
months to perform due diligence
on the Hickory House.
Commissioners Sylvia
Murphy and George Neugent
opposed the purchase agree-
ment.
"This is not a perfect contract
for sure, but public access [to the
water] is guaranteed, and the
180 days is so the public can
have their say," Commissioner
Dixie Spehar said.
Spehar was the driving force
behind the county buying the
property for $3.12 million in
2006. She pushed for it at a time
when waterfront parcels were
disappearing fast with residen-
tial development. Spehar said
this would provide perhaps the
only public access to the water
on Stock Island. She envisioned-
a community park.
King's Pointe's proposal
would ensure public access to
the strip of the property along
the waterfront for 50 years.
Plans for the parcel include a
store and five affordable housing
units.

er for Naval Air Station Key

West, told the commission the
Navy opposes the sales contract
because it would allow new res-
idential units in a high noise area

accepted by the county in the
Navy's 1977 Air Installation

Mayor Sonny McCoy dis-
missed the objection by saying.

"thank you, the captain keeps us

King's Pointe has expressed
interest in the parcel since the
county tried to sell it a year ago,
but County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton said there were demands
the county just couldn't agree to.
One of those was likely the
marina's request for the county
to abandon the road that lies
between the marina and the
Hickory House so it could be
used for parking.
However, the road ends at the
water, and county law prohibits
such abandonment.


flights in September 2007, but
Gator Air had not been among
them.
"They've been talking to us
informally since December and
they said, 'We're ready,'"
Horton said. "They're full of
enthusiasm and they have very
optimistic plans. We'll do
everything we can to help them
make those plans a reality."
Hortpn said he is also trying
to bring Gator Air to Key West,
"which is difficult because of
space constraints."
Finding a carrier for
Marathon has been an arduous
task, even though it would be
charged nothing for space, land-
ing fees or utilities. Horton said
it is a matter of the public sup-
porting the service.
"If you don't support local
airlines they go away." he said.
Even with support. Delta dis-
continued service to Atlanta
after just a few months of
flights. It cited the runway
being too small to accommo-
date its planes.
Gator Air President Dave
Brown said he hopes a $59 fare
will foster the support needed to
keep his airline flying to


Marathon at least once a day.
"At $59 we hope for more
than once a day; it's a good fare
and it fits in our budget," Brown
said. He said tentative plans are
to leave Marathon at 8:45 a.m.
so travelers will arrive in Fort
Lauderdale in time to make an
earlier connection.
"We're hoping the service
can go year round. In the sum-
mer you might have to reduce
service depending on the load,"
Brown said. "The bottom line is
if we can get service on a regu-
lar basis the community will
support you."
Gator Air flies nine-passen-


ger Piper Cherokee Chieftan
airplanes, which Horton said
looks like "the interior of a
business jet" inside.
"It's not the usual little
plane. We redid the interior so
it's semi-executive...carpeted
walls and leather seats," Brown
said.
Horton said the airline would
serve Marathon on a 90-day
trial basis to gauge interest in
the service.
"They'll decide if they'll go
on from there and whether
they'll come back next season,"
he said.

He wants to be, under the sea...


But in a dome
rather than an Waterford said. He would be in
rhth hthabitat for the duration He --- -


octopus' garden
By RYAN McCARTHY


Most people in the Keys love
the ocean, but not enough to live
in it.
That's exactly what the presi-
dent and chief executive officer
of Habitat Waterford. Shaun
Waterford, intends to do for three
months somewhere in the Keys
this May.
It would shatter the current
record of 69 days.
Waterford is an Australia
native who has designed a unique
semi-pennanent, self-supporting
habitat capable of withstanding
pressure up to 1,500 pounds per
square inch and totally equalized
at sea level. This means someone
could live in the dome-style habi-
tat indefinitely because there are
no issues with decompression, he
says.
"I can live in the habitat and
swim out of it and have no trou-
ble with pressure differential,"


says various scientists would visit
and conduct research in the habi-
tat.
Dave Score, superintendent of
the Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary, said the project would
have to be evaluated on its own
merit to determine whether it
would be allowed to happen.
There are some submerged lands
the state has deeded over, but
nothing can be done there to neg-
atively impact resources, he said.
"If it altered the sea bottom, it
would require a permit. You
never say never, but I'd have to
review the project," Score said.
Waterford works out of Cape
Canaveral and said he wants the
Keys to be the place where he
makes his world-record attempt.
"After looking at a few loca-
tions, it is perfect for what I want
to do with this prototype and I
want to involve some residents of
the Keys and see if someone has
a location we might be able to do
the attempt in." he said.
Waterford hopes to garner
attention for the new habitat with

habitat developed by Shaun Waterford, of Habitat Waterford.
Waterford hopes to live in one of the 300 square foot habitats for
90 days in Keys waters to raise awareness for the technology.


the attempt and initially hoped to
"engage corporate entities to
sponsor [it] with all proceeds
being donated to ocean conserva-
tion organizations." Either way,
he says, the project will go on.
"I don't want the project to be
pending on whether a corporation
gets behind it: it'll be financed no


matter what," Waterford said.
The habitat works basically
like a submarine, with four bal-
last tanks that are filled with
water to add weight and sink it.
"When you flood the tanks, it
adds weight and you go down,
when you want to come up you
just pump the water out of the
tank." Waterford said, noting the
unit is portable and can be towed
to any location.
Waterford would even have all
the creature comforts he would
on dry land, including Internet
and cable television. The 300-
square-foot habitat would be con-
nected, via an "umbilical cord,"
to a power source on dry land.
The dome structure is made of
polyurethane, like parachute
material, which is sprayed with a
fiberglass compound that stiffens
the bladder. The plan is to sink
the prototype in 25 to 30 feet of
water.
Waterford says the habitat
could be used in a variety of ways
in the business world, such as an
eco-accommodation for guests at
a resort or as a monitoring station
for areas affected by pollution.
One use beneficial to the Keys
would be the habitat acting as an
aquaculture base to grow phyto-
plankton and zooplankton to
release into the environment.
"If there was a fishing ground
with a catastrophe that has wiped
out the population, 1 could drop
this habitat down there. You
could feed the reef with desirable
species and it will be like a haven
for fish and wildlife to grow,"
Waterford said.

Boat-ramp progress being.made


Contract up
for OK, DOT
deal reached
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
is scheduled to meet in regular
session Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at
the Marathon Government
Center. Agenda items include:
* A resolution to approve a
joint participation agreement
between the Florida Department
of Transportation and city to
complete repairs to the boat
ramp adjacent to the former
Quay property.
The resolution states the
ramp is in disrepair and requires
replacement at a minimum. It
also says the ramp retaining
walls and parking area need
work.


The resolution says DOT has
offered $90,000 to expedite the
repairs. DOT still owns the boat
ramp, though the resolution says
it will likely transfer the proper-
ty to the city should it desire.
* A resolution to approve an
amendment to a Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission contract concern-
ing work on the 33rd Street boat
ramp.
It states plans to work on the
restroom meant operations at an
adjacent youth recreation center
would be disrupted. The plans
were changed so the existing
facility will be refurbished.
The project is slated to cost
$992,901 and will be funded by
grant money from FWC and the
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency.
+ A resolution awarding the
contract to construct the 33rd


Street boat ramp to Coral
Marine Construction.
The project was delayed sev-
eral months because the city
intends to put a double ramp in
place of the existing single one.
The resolution states 'the
improvement increased the
scope of work beyond FEMA
authorization.
+ A resolution authorizing an
interlocal agreement with the
city of Key West to participate
in the 2005 disaster-recovery
Community Development Block
Grant program.
Marathon shared in a $7.5
million allocation from the state
to Key West, which has since
been allocated another $10.25
million. Another agreement is
required to share in those funds.
The resolution states the
funding is to "assist in the
recovery in the most impacted
and distressed areas relating to
the consequences of hurricanes


Katrina, Rita and Wilma" in
2005.
* A resolution to broaden the
scope of work for EssentialNet
Solutions Inc. until the city finds
a permanent information tech-
nology director.
The company designed the
city's computer network system


and has continued to provide
remote support and consulting
services to the city, the resolu-
tion states.

Attorney for KW cop complains to city


Neary under
investigation,
documents show
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The Key West Police
Department Wednesday alerted
suspended officer Tom Neary
that an internal investigation is
being conducted against him,
generating reactions from city
officials.


Neary's attorney, Michael
Barnes, spoke to the Key West
City Commission Wednesday
night, claiming Neary is being
attacked by Chief Bill Mauldin
and the department.
Mauldin wouldn't confirm or
deny the investigation but com-
mented on Barnes' presentation
to the commission.
"Let it go to court," Mauldin
said. "Let it be resolved where it
needs to be resolved, not in the
public. I think we need to allow


the facts to speak for what has
happened and let that be the
determining factor."
Neary filed a lawsuit against
the department in December in
Monroe County Circuit Court,
demanding a minimum of $6
million in compensatory and
punitive damages, stemming
from a previous investigation of
him
"Chief is frantic to prove any-
thing he can," Barnes told the
Keynoter. "We already had this
investigation."
Documents viewed by the


Keynoter confirm the investiga-
tion, which, according to Barnes,
is looking at "conduct unbecom-
ing an officer."
Barnes claims officers in the
department would speak to
Neary's innocence if they didn't
fear retribution.
"No good cop will stand up
and do what's right," he said.
But Mauldin said until litiga-
tion is settled, "officers are
gagged from saying anything on
this issue."
The investigation comes on
the heels of an FBI investigation
completed in December, which
absolved Neary of allegations
that his gun was stolen and that
he was posing as an undercover
FBI agent.
The FBI investigation also
revealed that Neary's allegations
of corruption against the depart-
ment were "unsubstantiated,"
according to FBI spokeswoman
Judy Orihuela.


In a letter addressed to
Mauldin, Barnes calls the inves-
tigation "clearly retaliatory" and
states, "You are a material wit-
ness in any investigation con-
cerning officer Neary and there-
fore excluded from also being
the initiating authority...."
He also claims his client was
refused rights guaranteed him by
state statutes and that Neary will
not participate as a witness in the
investigation because it's not
"fair" or "procedurally correct."
According to Barnes, his
client was "interrogated" for
three hours by officers in a pre-
vious investigation.
Mayor Morgan McPherson
stressed the importance of "pro-
tecting an individual."
"We're starting to have a
problem," in the Police
Department, Commissioner
Mark Rossi said. "We have a
morale problem and other man-
agement problems."

steps on do

Monday talks
to focus on
- architects


By KYLE TEAL
kteal @keynoter.comi

The Florida Keys Corm-
munity College Board of
Trustees, meeting at 5 p.m.
Monday, is expected to discuss
requests for proposals to hire
an architectural firm that
would take on the task of
building dormitory housing.
Dorms have long been dis-
cussed among administrators,
but because community col-
leges are not allowed to man-
age dorms on campus, the
Florida Keys Educational
Foundation would oversee the
student housing. The founda-
tion is a support arm of the col-
lege.
The college will form a pub-
lic-private partnership to over-
see the housing project.
"A potential donor has been
identified," college-planning
consultant Jim Hendrick said.
Monroe County Circuit
Judge Wayne Miller's decision


rms

ErlS


on Thursday that Key West's
rate-of-growth ordinance no
longer exists because it sunset
in 2002 apparently helps the
college develop the dorms.
However, that ruling could be
appealed.
ROGO limited the number
of building permits issued
based upon hurricane evacua-
tion times.
Recently Key West Mayor
Morgan McPherson submitted
a grant application for the John
D. and Catherine T. MacArthur
Foundation. Housing for the
college is among goals listed
on the application, at a price of
about $350,000 for design,
legal and planning services.
This would be applied to a pro-
posed 100-unit dorm intended
to house nearly 200 students at
a location yet to be identified.
"If we don't do something,
bad things are going to happen
at that community college,"
said Ed Scales, chairman of the
college's board.
The board meets at its con-
ference room on the Stock
Island campus.

school zoning


It would
allow housing
on campuses
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


The Monroe County Com-
mission gave a unanimous green
light to a zoning change that will
allow the School District to
build teacher housing on school
property.
At its Wednesday Key Largo
meeting, the commission
approved an ordinance that
School Board members say will
go a long way to retaining good
teachers.
"This is not a real estate
deal," School Board member
Duncan Mathewson said, "but
an attempt to recruit and retain
the best and the brightest teach-
ers."
Under current zoning, hous-
ing cannot be erected on proper-
ty owned by the School District.
This ordinance sets up a means
to do accomplish that.
The concept has brought con-
troversy, especially with parents
of students who attend Sugarloaf
School, where developer Ed
Swift has proposed a project of
affordable homes for sale to
qualified buyers.
Some critics worry the
School District will be unable to
monitor the behavior of home-
owners and that there could be a
threat to students.
S"We're losing 20 percent of
our teaching staff each year,"
said board member John Dick.
"The good of doing this out-
weighs the bad of doing it."
"The School Board has done
all they can to set up a mecha-
nism for screening all new own-


ers," Mathewson said. "If we're
going to increase classroom per-
formance, we need a better sys-
tem for providing workforce
housing."
According to Swift, the hous-
ing will be offered first to teach-
ers and School District employ-
ees, then to employees of
Florida Keys Community
College, "then government
employees, then those who pro-

vide essential services."
The county Planning
Commission approved the ordi-
nance in January, and now it
needs to pass muster with the
Florida Department of
Community Affairs.
Over the past decade, the dis-
trict has had an average attrition
of 100 teachers a year, meaning
100 leave and need to be
replaced.
Surveys conducted by the
district show the lack of afford-
able housing is a major reason
they leave, according to School
Board Chairman Steve
Pribramsky.

Board: Fussell earns keep


Rudell sought
to take away
6% increase
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmcclarthy (a keynoter.corm


Several motions made by
Florida Keys Mosquito Control
District Commissioner Dick
Rudell at the board's Tuesday
meeting found Rudell sparring
with his fellow commissioners
and Director Edsel Fussell.
And the motions largely
failed.
Rudell has been unhappy
with Fussell's performance of
late, in particular his handling of
a September 22007 incident
involving district Superintendent
Michael Spoto.
Spoto accumulated $5253.24
in cell-phone charges using three
unauthorized lines for his person-
al use. Spoto was eventually sus-
pended for two weeks without
pay and ordered to pay restitution.
Spoto was using one of the
phones to contact almost exclu-
sively a receptionist/secretary
specialist at the district's Key
West office on her'personal cell
phone. District Comptroller
William Southcott said at the


111111 III7T7711TRST =
time he believed the other two
lines were being used by his wife
and daughter.
Rudell said Tuesday he was
upset the district spent $23,000
of taxpayer money investigating
the charges against Spoto. It was
also disclosed Fussell had con-
tacted commissioners Joan
Lord-Papy, Charles Langstaff
and Steve Smith in the wake of
the incident, but not Rudell or
Commissioner Bill Shaw.
"When we had this problem,
our director stated on the record
he called | Langstaff, Lord-Papy
and Smith]. Commissioner
Rudell was never notified and
neither was 1." Shaw said.
"If an employee is caught
misappropriating assets and it
takes two months for us to find
about it ... that's something that
should be brought before the
board," Rudell said.
Fussell said the terms of his
contract state only actions
"greater than a suspension with-
out pay" have to be reported to
the Board.
"1 thought it was something
that needed to stay in-house." he
said.
Only a portion from one of
his three motions - reinstating


an annual evaluation of the
director's performance -
passed Tuesday. It was paired
with a call to rescind Fussell's
yearly cost-of-living, salary
increase of six percent, which
failed 3-2.
Fussell makes $174,137
annually.
Langstaff, who at one point
turned his chair away from the
proceedings in frustration, said he
feels money saved by Fussell off-
sets whatever his salary may be.
"Six percent is a mere pit-
tance compared with what we've
got accomplished," he said.
"We're using other people's
money and we're responsible for
how we spend it," Rudell said.
Motions requiring the direc-
tor to report employee difficul-
ties to the board and to notify the
board of any incident that may
result in legal action or expenses
also failed 3-2.
"This all goes back to one
incident." Smith said, referring to
Spoto. "We have a great staff: I
think we're spending 15 minutes
talking about a personal issue."
Shaw and Rudell voted 'in
favor of every motion, while
Langstaff. Lord-Papy and Smith
voted against each one. The lone
exception was Smith, who voted
in favor of an annual evaluation.

Navy's opposed
due to proximity
to the air base
By ALYSON CREAN
acreans' keynoter.coin

In a 3-2 vote, the Monroe
County Commission approved
what one U.S. Navy representa-
tive called "a 20 percent worse
amendmentt" changing the way
building density is calculated for
affordable housing in unincorpo-
rated Monroe County.
Ron Demes. business manag-


noise and safety are issues.
The approved change to the
county's comprehensive plan
would alter the way density is
calculated to allow affordable
housing projects to be calculated
on the gross acreage of a parcel,
which could add as much as 20
percent more density.
The change, according to the
county's former affordable hous-
ing consultant, Jerry Coleman,
would provide an incentive for
builders to create affordable
housing by giving them leeway to
build more units on a site.
Density calculations currently
have a number of variables,
including setbacks or buffer zone
requirements that reduce the area
used to calculate the total number
of units allowed.
Demes said the Navy is not
opposed to the concept overall,
but is worried it would allow
higher density in areas near NAS
Key West where the Navy
already opposes residential use.
Demes asked that any redevel-
opment that falls within contours
established by the Air Installation
Compatible Use Zones, or
AICUZ, be exempt from the new
calculations.
"The proposed comprehensive
plan amendment could adversely
affect the operations and mission
capability of NAS," Demes said.
"If the encroachment creates a
severe-enough impact on the
operations of the military instal-
lation, it may be required to
change or significantly limit its
operations and mission capabili-
ty."
Commissioners Mario Did
Genera, Dixie Spear and Sonny
McCoy voted to approve the
amendment. Commissioners


Nine Locations Throughout The Keys


Marine Bank I


Keynoter


George Nugent and Sylvia
Murphy voted against it.
"I understand the Navy's
problems," Did Genera said, "but
you have to understand the coun-
ty's desperation for housing."
"What we're asking is that the
20 percent increase doesn't occur
in the AICUZ," Demes said.
Nugent asked whether it
would be feasible to rewrite the
amendment so it doesn't affect
density on properties that fall
within the high sound AICUZ
contours.
"In my opinion," county
Growth Management Director
Drew Trivets said, "we can't alle-
viate the concerns of the Navy
today."
He said the county would have
to adopt the Navy's newest noise
contours, which it has not yet
done. The county uses the 1977
AICUZ boundaries.
Demes says the property on
Stock Island that would likely be
affected by the new density cal-
culations lies within the 1977
boundaries.
"The Navy is not opposed to
the development of affordable
housing or providing incentives
to increase development," Demes
said. "The goal of the Navy and
other military organizations is to
work with Monroe County to
protect military installations from
the encroachment of incompati-
ble uses and ensure affordable
housing is located in such areas
that protect the public health.
safety and welfare."
With the County
Commission's approval, the
amendment now goes to
Tallahassee where the
Department of Community
Affairs will have 60 days to
review it for compliance with
state guidelines.

Judge: ROGO is a no-go


Miller rules
permit system
doesn't exist
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Rate-of-growth-ordinances
allocations that dictate how many
building permits are issued
according to evacuation deadlines
haven't existed for six years,
according to a Monroe County
Circuit Court decision Thursday.
After much debate and four
lawsuits filed against the city of
Key West, Southernmost
Guesthouse owner Matilde
Ramos doesn't have to obtain
ROGO allocations to purchase
transient rental licenses for her
14-unit guesthouse on Upper
Duval Street.
Judge Wayne Miller decided
the ROGO allocation system,
under which permits are issued
based on hurricane evacuation
times, terminated under its own
terms in April 2002, and provided
Miller's decision isn't appealed
and overruled, that's how it will
stay.
With the absence of ROGO
allocations, which city officials
have long claimed aren't avail-
able, Miller's decision could pave
the way for developers or proper-
ty owners wishing to redevelop to
more easily pursue their projects.
The lack of available ROGO
allocations has long been a road-
block for development and rede-
velopment projects, some push-
ing for more affordable housing.
"The damage is incalculable,"
said Michael Halpern, who repre-
sents Ramos. "It's been a brutal
roadblock for affordable housing
and for dormitory housing for the


college. A lot of people couldn't
build on their own lots because
they couldn't pay for $200,000
ROGOs. Even though the city lost
the lawsuit, it won overall because
it's free to do what it wants."
Not everyone agrees.
"It's just going to open every-
thing to more development," for-
mer Mayor Jimmy Weekley said.
"It needs to be appealed."
Halpern said the City
Commission in 2002 passed an
illegal resolution under Weekley
that extended the existence of
ROGO, despite a memorandum
that notified the extinction of the
allocation process to the city
from the state Department of
Community Affairs.
Miller cited that memo in his
decision, which stated the hurri-
cane evacuation standards lasted
from April 1, 1990, to April 1,
2002.
"For this, Mayor Weekley and
his prior staff has to answer,"
Halpern said.
"At the advice of our attorney
and the city planner, we probably
did expand ROGO," Weekley
said. "The issue was the same as
it has been: hurricane evacuation.
The state wanted us to come up
with the 24-hour hurricane evac-
uation standards."
Halpern filed his latest law-
suits in November, claiming
ROGO governs only the amount
of permit allocations and doesn't
control how many transient
licenses can be issued.
The city had refused to issue
the transient licenses Ramos wants
for the Southernmost Guesthouse
on the basis there were no ROGO
allocations on the property.
"The court finds that the city
of Key West had a clear legal


duty to issue the certificates,
licenses and permits," Miller
wrote in his ruling.
The guesthouse has operated
with only two licenses since
2004, after the city allowed its
conversion a 14-room hotel and
museum in 2001.
Ramos, according to Miller's
judgment, received licenses from
the state Department of Business
Regulation in 2004.
Halpern was previously denied
a restaurant license, but does offer
daiquiris from the bar for visitors
who pay a $5 entry fee to see the
museum and use the pool.
The issue of turning the house
into a 150-seat restaurant recently
reappeared, and has been contin-
uously tabled and pulled from
Planning Board agendas.

Pantelis told to go to City Commission


Market owner
doesn't get on
Bight agenda
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@kkeynoter.conm

Key West's Waterfront
Market sale is close to comple-
tion but pending approval by a
city governing board.
The Key West Bight
Management District Board met
Wednesday but didn't discuss
the market. The board has a pol-
icy of not accepting late addi-


tions to its agenda, and new
board Chairman Harry Bethel
said last month he is a stickler
on that policy. He reiterated that
Wednesday.
Waterfront Market owner
Buco Pantelis said before the
meeting not gaining immediate
city approval complicates the
sale of his business to United
Natural Foods.
SBethel told Pantelis the
board would hold a special
meeting if the sale depends on
it. Port Operations Director
Raymond Archer also suggested


that city managers and Pantelis
appear before the City
Commission first, as its
approval of the sale is also
required, then get Bight Board
approval at next month's regu-
lar meeting.
Pantelis was worried the
deadline would pass for notify-
ing the city of his intent to
vacate his lease, which ends in
May and requires 90 days
notice. Bethel said he spoke to
City Commissioner Bill Verge.
who assured him any time past
the end of the lease could be
month-to-month rent.
City property manager
Marilyn Wilharger said the city
is not being arbitrary enforcing
a deadline for preparing Bight
Board agendas. The city legal
staff needs time to review such


requests, she said. And the mar-
ket, a Bight anchor tenant, is
particularly important and has a
complicated lease requiring
extra review time, she said.
Fears that the market might
change after a sale are unfound-
ed, Pantelis said. He said United
Natural Foods plans to keep the
general business and enhance it.
Representatives from that com-
pany have not returned phone
calls from the Keynoter.
Buildings in the Bight are
leased from the city instead of
owned outright. Those leases
are the property of the business
owner. But since new tenants
must be approved by the board,
leases cannot be sold without
board approval.
Also Wednesday, the board
heard that the Schooner Wharf


Bar, a stone's throw from the
Waterfront Market, is a failing
building. The burned-out sec-
ond floor needs to be torn down,
and has for six years.
But while planning to tear
down the added-on upstairs
storage, city officials found the
whole building needs to be
replaced. Archer said the build-
ing can be secured while the
second floor is torn off, but
Bethel and others are concerned
enough to request a formal
opinion from city engineers.
Building demolition could
become complicated. Federal
regulations could require any
replacement building be built
significantly higher than the
current structure, depending on
how it is built and used.


Planning Board to get bigger role


Some say it
should hear
planning issues
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@ 'keynoter.coi

Planning Board Chairman
Richard Klitenick, reappointed
Wednesday by the Key West
City Commission, would also


1. . _--- 1


New latl


like to serve on the Board of
Adjustment, alongside the rest
of the Planning Board.
"1 think Key West is the one
of the only city commissions
that acts as its board of adjust-
ments." Klitenick said.
A revision to the ordinance
that created the Board of
Adjustment to make that
change will likely be discussed
at the March 4 City
Commission meeting.
Former City Commissioner
Ed Scales agrees, and unsuc-
cessfully lobbied for the
change when he was on the
dais.
"That was my big, big
push," Scales said. "And it
went down in amazing flames.
1 might as well said I support
axe murdering."
The Board of Adjustment
often handles quasi-judicial
cases involving property vari-
ances, appeals and other typi-
cal planning issues.
"It's sort of zany for the
same folks who pass the laws
to be the same people who
give exceptions to the law."
Scales said. "It's crazy. One
day we are going to wear one
hat to pass the laws, and the
next night we hear variances to
the very same laws we passed.
It's the whole separation-of-
power thing that I learned in
ninth grade."


Scales pushed a non-bind-
ing resolution to see how vot-
ers would feel about the
change, but even that wasn't
approved.
"You're dealing almost
exclusively with land-use reg-
ulations." Klitenick said. "It
could probably streamline
many things."
Klitenick asks: Why not
free up more time for commis-
sioners to review city business
by allowing the Planning
Board to claim the Board of
Adjustment's responsibility?
Some commissioners think
it's a fair question.
Commissioners Clayton
Lopez and Mark Rossi are on
board with the idea, saying it
will "streamline" the process
and allow them more time to
review commission agenda
items.
Klitenick believes the move
would also depoliticizee"
some of the decisions made by
the Board of Adjustment.
A change to the ordinance
was table at the Planning
Board's Jan. 17 meeting. City
Attorney Shawn Siith said.
"It requires changing the
code and land development
regulations... We began the
process of looking at amend-
ing the ordinances." Smith
said. Former City Planner Gail
Kenson put a lot of time into
the issue before her depar-
ture."

Garden to get fresh in Key West


Commissioners
OKs renovations
on Stock Island
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

A unanimous "yes" vote from
the Key West City Commission
led to animated applause from
garden lovers Wednesday night.
The Key West Tropical
Forest and Botanical Garden's
plan to unearth an aquifer and
create freshwater ponds
received a blessing from the
commission.
Garden fans, wearing "yes to
our garden" stickers, lined up in
Old City Hall to speak in favor
of the ecological sanctuary on
Stock Island. Many wore green
attire, including 8-year-old
Tessa Eggers, who said she
enjoys the garden's special
events.
Russell Moore of IBI Group
Inc. presented his vision for the
environmental renovation proj-
ect.
Burt Smith of the Key West
Golf Club, the garden's neigh-
bor, said the club hadn't
received notice of the garden's
plans, and was worried of possi-
ble saltwater intrusion that could
result- from unearthing the
aquifer, an accident that could
ruin the golf course's grass.
The commission said *it
would address Smith's concerns
by reviewing a hydrology
report, documents outlining the
circulation and direction of the
under-surface water.


The golf club reclaims its
irrigation water and depends on
it for lush green grass.
As long as that report indi-
cates all preventative steps will
be taken to avoid saltwater
intrusion, the project gets the
green light, officials decided.
Officials also addressed a
trailer and education building on
the property, supporting a two-
year deadline to give the non-
profit ample time to either get
zoning ordinances change or
remove the trailers from the
property.
Tree removal was also debat-
ed for the College Road proper-
ty. Invasive exotic trees would
have to be removed under
requirements of the Florida
Communities Trust, a funding
source for the gardens, but
Commissioner Clayton Lopez
said the "historically significant
invasive exotic trees" such as
ficus and tamarind shouldn't be
removed.
Carolann Sharkey, who
chairs the garden's board, said
creating the ponds will be the
first step in the overall $2.5 mil-
lion project, and will hopefully
be completed by 2009.
Sharkey said the property to
be redeveloped was acquired
from Florida Forever, a land-
acquisition program, in July
2005. Florida Forever's Monroe
County program is called
Florida Keys Ecosystem.
Also Wednesday:
* Contract renewal of the
city's Federal Emergency
Management Agency Co-


ordinator Scott Fraser was voted
down, as every commissioner
except Lopez wanted to distrib-
ute a request for proposals to
make the bid competitive.
City Manager Jim Scholl
called the position "very techni-
cal," saying renewal "is in the
best interest of the city. Scott
has been very professional. He
has very good relationships with



KAIR 20C


Sat


FEMA representatives."
Commissioner Dan Kolhage
said, "Plenty of people are qual-
ified to be FEMA coordinators."
"I'm a big RFP guy,"
Kolhage told the Keynoter. "It
cost a few dollars, but we're
required to do it. It kills all con-
spiracy theories. It's govern-
ment in the sunshine."
Kolhage acknowledge that


Fraser's done good work, but
said this way he has the opportu-
nity to compete for the bid like
everyone else.
* Commissioners passed a
resolution to fund AIDS Help's
50-unit Poinciana supported liv-
ing facility project. The city is
contributing $40,000 from its
affordable housing trust fund to
assist the nonprofit.

Group sues over transfers


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Environmental group Last
Stand filed another lawsuit
against the city of Key West and
Parrot Key Associates Friday,
claiming transfers of transient
licenses from the former
Hampton Inn property are illegal.
"City code prohibits the trans-
fer of licenses from 2801 N.
Roosevelt," Last Stand attorney
Eric Dadd said. "The city cannot
change a legislatively enacted
land-use regulation by passing a
resolution at a City Commission
meeting."
A resolution passed by the
City Commission on July 18,
2006, included a clause that
allows the licenses in question to
be transferred out of the commer-
cial zoning district, a move
restricted by city code.
"They're in a maze, no matter
which way they go to do this, in


my opinion, it's illegal," Dadd
said.
More than two years ago, the
157-unit Hampton Inn was
demolished to make way for 74
Parrot Key townhouses on that
site. That left developer Pritam
Singh with 83 leftover transient
licenses.
Those licenses have repeated-
ly gone before the board with the
intention of transferring to Old
Town properties.
Dadd and members of Last
Stand attended Thursday night's
Planning Board meeting in the
hopes of fighting another slew of
transient rental-license transfers
on the agenda.
Owen Trepanier of Trepanier
and Associates Inc. was at the
meeting to represent Singh's
transfers.
Singh has stressed the impor-
tance of transient licenses to the


Planning Board and the
Keynoter, emphasizing the city's
lifeblood - tourism.
Prior to Thursday's Planning
Board meeting, Dadd supplied the
board with copies of a letter out-
lining city code, which restricts
transfers from such a site.
Also attached to the letter was
a copy of Monroe County Circuit
Court Judge David Audlin's deci-
sion that prevented Singh from
transferring certain licenses from
the old Hampton Inn to Old
Town. That decision spawned
from a previous suit filed by Last
Stand.
But many other licenses have
successfully been transferred,
according to city planning docu-
ments from last year.
That material sent to the board
was given to Trepanier, who
pulled the items from the agenda.
"I don't think they expected a
coherent, organized opposition,"
Dadd said.


Two more file for
Circuit Court judge

Two more candidates have
announced their intents to seek
the seat of retiring Monroe
County Circuit Court Judge
Sandra Taylor.
Key West attorney Jiulio
Margalli has a private civil and
criminal law firm. He served a
term on the Monroe County
Planning Commission until
2006 and ran for a seat on the
County Commission in 2000.
"I've always been interest-
ed in the possibility of becom-
ing a judge," he said. "And
this is an opportunity because
Judge Taylor is stepping
down."
Margalli, who came to the
Keys in 1994 fresh out of law
school in New Orleans, has
worked with the Public
Defender's Office and has


quasi-judicial experience as
has served as a Supreme Court
mediator.
Key Largo resident
Alexander Nelson is also run-
ning for the nonpartisan seat,
which is for six years. Nelson
was unavailable for comment
Friday.
Already in the running are
Key West residents Manny
Madruga and Tegan Slaton.
Madruga is a prosecutor who
has tried many high -profile
cases in the Keys. Slaton is an
attorney in private practice
whose experience includes
serving as a public defender
and special magistrate.
The qualifying period for
the judiciary runs from noon
April 28 to noon May 2. The
qualifying for others is from
June 16 to June 20. The pri-
mary election is Aug. 26 and
the general election is Nov. 4.

Property insurance wasn't
supposed to be the big issue in
the 2008 Legislature. To the
chagrin of many lawmakers, it
just won't go away.
Legislators thought they'd
largely taken care of the issue
last year when they passed a
bill they hoped would reduce
premiums. Instead, most
Floridians still pay expensive
rates to protect their homes and
businesses, and relief remains
elusive. Only 20 percent of
Floridians have seen their pre-
miums decrease following the
passage of House Bill IA in a
January 2007 special session.
That has legislators upset
and thinking of ways to con-
front the issue when the legisla-
tive session opens March 4. But
they'll be revisiting property
insurance on top of other
important issues in a session
where fewer dollars are avail-
able for the second straight
year.
Gov. Charlie Crist and law-
makers are frustrated that prop-
erty insurance rates haven't
dropped across the board after
they increased the amount in
the state's Hurricane
Catastrophe Fund last year.
That plan was designed to
help lower premiums for con-
sumers by providing cheaper
reinsurance to commercial
companies. Aside from a hand-
ful of relatively new domestic
startup companies, few insurers
have failed to come back with
lower rates.
With rates still high, law-
makers are taking sworn testi-
mony from private insurers in
hopes of reducing rates and
Crist has enlisted three promi-
nent private-sector attorneys to
study the possibility of a class
action suit against the industry.
A specially formed Senate com-
mittee has interviewed insur-
ance executives and worked
through the math they use to set
rates. Meanwhile, the Office of
Insurance Regulation is in court
with Illinois-based insurance
giant Allstate Corp. over infor-
mation about its rates.

Use stimulus plan
to pay down debt
rather than spend
By ALICIA BETANCOURT
Keynoter Contributor

Despite concerns of some
Washington policymakers about
cutbacks in consumer spending,
it's not the responsibility of
financially troubled Americans
to increase purchases - nor is it
wise for them to do so. Roughly


one-third of Americans who say
their financial condition is poor
or fair should take steps to stabi-
lize their finances.
Now that Congress has
approved a stimulus package
with payments to most house-
holds, financially stressed
Americans should consider
using any new funds to pay
down high-cost debt and add to
savings. That will help them not
only cover unexpected expenses
like car repairs and doctor visits,


but also protect against any
income losses.
Over the long term, as the
financial condition of American
households grows stronger, so
will an economy plagued by
fewer personal bankruptcies and
mortgage foreclosures.
America Saves Week, which
the Monroe County Cooperative
Extension Service and other
organizations are participating
in, can help consumers improve
their financial situation. During

Slowdown hits Key West


Duval merchants
feel the pinch
of the slump
By CAMMY CLARK
cclark@miamiherald.com

At Key West's quaint
Tropical Inn on Duval Street; the
communal microwave is heating
a lot of food these days.
"More guests have been
bringing back leftovers from the
restaurants," said Jane Lowe,


owner of the inn. "Instead of
going out for dinner and lunch
the next day, they'll eat those
leftovers for lunch. We see a lot
of people cutting corners."
Most of the 312 businesses
and 39 kiosks operating on
Duval Street are feeling the
pinch of penny-pinching vaca-
tioners. Some are struggling to
survive in what normally would
be considered high season.
"It's slow on Duval Street,
but it's slow all over the coun-


try," said Virginia Panico. execu-
tive vice president of the Key
West Chamber of Commerce.
"There are times when we don't
feel it, or are the last to feel it.
But we are in the midst of a
slowdown."
It seems difficult to believe
times are tough for Duval mer-
chants by simply looking at the
city's main tourist drag, which
stretches 1.2 miles from the Gulf
of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean.
Since Christmas, there have

Stephen Ruben got mar-
ried, which set off a chain
reaction. Four years later, the
direct result is two successful
and growing businesses.
Ruben, not satisfied with
what he could rent, pur-
chased tents, tables, chairs
and more for his wedding,
then parlayed that into a
wedding supply business
called Key West Party
Rentals.
Before Ruben, a Miami-
based supplier had stretched
to accommodate events in
Key West. When Key West
Party Rentals came along,
the mainland company was
happy to pass off the Keys
businesses, Ruben says.
"Listen. you know the
economy is not so good
down here." he says. "So
having two business that are
growing, that's unbelievable."
The other business, which
Ruben promotes in hand
with the wedding supplies,
has been a lifelong dream -
"owning a Bentley and Rolls
Royce, and'making someone
else pay for it." That's what
Keys Limo does.
Weddings and luxury cars
- fickle industries with ever-
changing tastes, which Ruben
figures he can capitalize on.
"Every year if Oprah
[Winfrey] starts showing a
new color, [we] have to get
all new linens, then new
chairs," he says. "It will
never stop, but it's fun."

National economy takes a local hit


DUVAL / From 22

been crowds of people on its
sidewalks day and night.
"But do you see any of them
carrying bags?" asked Tony
Gregory, owner of Art Attack, an
eclectic jewelry and T-shirt shop
that has been at the same Duval
Street location for 26 years.
"Business on Duval isn't what it
used to be."
Just ask Barbara Coon, the
72-year-old in a cowboy hat who
works sales and marketing for
Crabby Dick's restaurant and the
Rhumba Key West Tropical Bar.
She said the restaurant used
to do $20,000 in business during
lunchtime just a few years ago.
Now, she said the place is lucky
to get $2,000 in business for the
midday meal.
"We don't have enough peo-
ple coming down to Key West,"
said Coon, an island resident for
25 years. "And with the reces-
sion and war and everything,
people are afraid to spend their
money."
Some businesses have not
been able to weather the eco-
nomic storm. One casualty is
House Key, a home accessories
store that had specialized in cus-
tom shelves, mirrors and chan-
deliers. It closed recently.
"We tried to work with House
Key's owner to keep his rent
level, but he just couldn't make
it," said Lowe, who is now try-
ing to rent the retail space next to
her inn for the same $4,000 per
month.

Crying the blues
"It's typical of the trend the


past two years; retailers are cry-
ing the blues," Lowe added.
"People are coming, hut they are
not buying. It's harder and hard-
er for retail shops to make it."
Lowe's retail space is on the
800 block of Duval. Some rents
are double or even triple that
price at the lower end of Duval,
where there is much more foot
traffic.
There are now 13 vacant
shops, a vacant cafe and a vacant
guest house on Duval Street,
which Key West city commis-
sioners Barry Gibson and Mark
Rossi, both Duval Street busi-
ness owners, say is the econom-
ic lifeblood of the island.
There are 31 properties or
businesses (about 10 percent of
the total) for sale or lease on
Duval Street, according to the
Key West Association of
Realtors. There are three com-
mercial buildings for lease and
21 commercial buildings listed
for sale, ranging from $595,000
to $8.5 million. There also are
seven businesses listed for sale,
from a $85,000 art gallery to
$1.9 million for Crabby Dick's.
"Our inventory is a little on
the high side compared to two or
three years ago," said associa-
tion president Jimmy Lane.
"No question the national
economy is affecting it," said
Claude Gardner, co-owner of
Prudential Knight & Gardner
Realty. "For too long, we
believed that Key West is insu-
lated from the rest of the econo-
my."
But Gardner said Duval
Street is still one of the better
places in Florida to own com-
mercial real estate. A major rea-


son: There is no room for over-
building like there is in places
such as Miami-Dade or Orlando.
Gardner pointed out that
property owners on Duval Street
are able to demand much higher
commercial rents because of the
tourist lure of the street.

Duval is king
"Rents fall off a cliff when
you get off Duval," said
Gardner. He said a building on
the 400 block of Duval goes for
up to $100 a square foot, while
just 10 feet off Duval on Eaton
Street rent goes for $35 a square
foot.
Curtis Skomp, a broker for
Coldwell Banker Commercial
Schmitt Real Estate, agreed that
Duval Street remains an attrac-
tive place to own commercial
property.
He said there is not a rush to
sell now, but that there are sound
reasons for some owners with a
lot of equity to sell.
"Some commercial property
owners want to liquidate
because of the uncertainty of
what will happen after the presi-
dential election to the capital
gain taxes, which are relatively
low right now," he said.
Duval Street gets a steady
shot of visitors from the cruise
ships, which last fiscal year
brought more than 800,000 pas-
sengers to the city for four to
eight hours at a time.
Angie Riley said her family
of five from Michigan was
spending about $500 during
their recent six-hour port call in
Key West. Before returning to
the Grandeur of the Seas, some
of her family went parasailing


and others took a Trolley tour.
They were finishing their quick
shore excursion with drinks at
Sloppy Joe's bar.
Key West officials and mer-
chants are keeping a close eye on
a proposed change to a federal
law that would make it nearly
impossible for cruise ships to
stop in Key West.
Without the cruise passen-
gers, Duval retailers would be
suffering far greater.
But cruise ship passengers
don't tend to buy art and other
major purchases during short
port calls. Many merchants sur-
vive on customers who have
time to browse.
Visitors staying on the island


had been down because there
were simply not as many hotel
rooms available. In the past two
years, hundreds of rooms disap-
peared because of renovations,
new construction and condo
conversions.
But now, Jodi Weinhofer of
the Lodging Association of the
Florida Keys and Key West, said
most of those renovations are
done, bringing some higher-end
guests.
"Hotels are doing OK," she
said. "But you can't turn on the
radio or television and hear
something negative about the
economy. That can affect spend-
ing habits."

Savings can really pay off


STIMULUS / From 22

the week beginning Sunday,
hundreds of national, state and
local organizations are urging
and helping Americans assess
their financial condition and
make any needed improvements.
Nationally, useful tools can
be found on the America Saves
Week Web site (www.america
savesweek.org), which
includes a savings checklist and
easily accessible information
about how to pay off high-cost


debt, and save effectively for
emergencies and retirement. It
also references an America
Saves personal wealth estimator,
which has shown many users
that they have more net wealth
than they had assumed, and how
the "miracle" of interest com-
pounding can help most families
build six- or even seven-figure
assets over time.
Locally, the Cooperative
Extension Service has been
offering activities focused on
savings needs ranging from debt
repayment to budgeting retire-


ment.
For example, it's working
with the AARP to reach people
through free-tax preparation
sites to maximize their refunds.
Monroe County high schools
will begin offering financial lit-
eracy in the classroom.
For years. Valeria Johnson
knew she should be saving.
Working in a bank, she even had
a savings account. But she rarely
kept more than a few dollars in
it. "I just never took saving seri-
ously." she said. Like many of
us, she lived paycheck to pay-
check. "Where am I going to
find money to save?" she
thought.
When she enrolled as a saver,
she set a small initial goal for
herself- saving enough so that
she could buy Christmas pres-
ents without using her credit
cards. Once that was accom-
plished, her second goal was to
establish an emergency fund.
"1 needed a cushion." she
said. "just to have some money
in the bank if something comes
up." Before, when her car broke
down, "1 would cry." she said.
Now she has the money to
pay for those repairs. At the
same time, she's been paying off
her credit cards. She also man-
aged to save enough for her first-
ever vacation - a trip to the
Bahamas.
"That's the only goal 1 didn't
mind taking the money out for."
she joked. She said she used to
think she couldn't save because
she lived paycheck to paycheck.
Then she realized she was living
paycheck to paycheck because
she wasn't saving.
She has found a number of
ways to save. such as saving
loose change. Whenever she got
a raise, she put either most or all
of the money into savings, hav-

ing the amount automatically
deposited from her paycheck.
"When 1 get a raise I look at it
this way: I've been living with-
out this: 1 can keep living with-
out it." she said. Her advice to
others is. "Don't start big and
make a goal that's unrealistic.
Instead, start small and stick
with it. As you watch it grow. it's
encouraging."
As the national economy
weakens, financially challenged


individuals and families should
take advantage of America
Saves Week to take steps
strengthening their financial
condition. These could include a
personal commitment to use
government payments received
this spring to reduce high-cost
debt and increase savings.

SMART Ride meeting
takes place Monday

An informational meeting
and kick-off for this year's
Southernmost AIDS/HIV
Ride (known as the SMART
Ride), takes place Monday at
5:30 p.m. in the Crystal
Ballroom at LaTeDa, 1125
Duval St., Key West. The
actual ride is Nov. 14 to 15
from Miami to Key West.
In the 165-mile ride, bicy-
clists get pledges, and 100
percent of what each rider or
crew member raises goes
directly to support six AIDS
service organizations
throughout Florida, including
AIDS Help in the Keys.
More than $1.2 million
has been raised in the previ-
ous four rides, and AIDS
Help has been the beneficiary
of nearly $250,000 of that.

nautical arts and crafts, fishing
gear and clothing.
Poking through boxes of
loose parts, boaters who have
been everywhere and seen
everything often turn up the
oddball or one-of-a-kind fitting
found nowhere else.
Fish chasers looking for
deeply discounted rods, reels,
line and lures come from miles
away to ogle the angling gear.


And water lovers of all ages
come to find tools and toys,
while sun worshippers enjoy a
day at the park.
Market hours are 8 a.m. to 5
p.m. today and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Sunday. There is no admission
charge.
All money raised benefits the
Upper Keys Rotary Foundation
Scholarship fund, which helps
local students pay for college.
As part of the market, mem-
bers of the Purple Isles Art
Guild will display their artwork


in a tent gallery. Visitors will
have an opportunity to meet the
local artists and buy their
works.
The Purple Isles Art Guild
has about 80 members, most of
which are Upper Keys artists
who work in a variety of media
to capture Keys impressions.
The guild promotes an interest
in and appreciation of art, spon-
sors education for the develop-
ment of members' talents and
helps support the art depart-
ments of the local schools.

A busy bunch of bustling
artists at the
Bougainvillea House
Gallery in Marathon is prepar-
ing for the gallery's grand re-
opening bash.
The Bougainvillea Bash is
planned for 5 to 8 p.m. Feb.
29 at the gallery, in the build-
ing housing the Greater
Marathon Chamber of
Commerce, mile marker 53.2
bayside. Since its founding in
1999, the artists' cooperative
had been in a standalone
house just up the road.
In November, the 20 mem-
ber artists acknowledged that
sales were flagging and real-
ized that if drastic measures
weren't taken to increase
walk-in traffic, the gallery
could fold.
Both good luck and fore-
sight stepped in when one of
the gallery's members sug-
gested that rental space avail-
able next to the chamber's
Visitors Center be looked into.
Quick decisions were made
and the gallery members

refurbished that space and
moved on in Feb. 1.
Since then, the move has
proven smart. Walk-in traffic
and sales have increased dra-
matically. And it not only gets
much more walk-in traffic due
to its location, it's a good
stage for the artists, who work
in oils, pastels, watercolor.
acrylics, colored pencil, pho-
tography. ceramics, glass and
jewelry.
For the Bougainvillea
Bash, each member artist has
donated one original work of
art to be raffled during the
evening. Each of the 20 origi-
nal pieces is valued at a mini-
mum of $200. The works are
on display at the gallery and
winners need not be present at
the bash to win, and the win-
ners can have their artwork
shipped free of charge.
Tickets are six for $5, 13 for
$10 and 20 for $15.
Harpist Steve Allerton of
Key West will set the mood
for the Bougainvillea Bash
with his repertoire of Celtic
and classical music. There
will also be finger foods, spir-
its and, of course, a great
vibe.
Regular gallery hours are
9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. The
number is 743-0808.

Key West Armory from
Wednesday to March 27. The
pictures reveal Desmarais's
interpretation of the Cuban spir-

and collective sense of courage
she witnessed during her recent

21 new giclee images will be
presented, some traditionally
stretched and others embracing
the Cuban notion of resolverr"

regardless of the lack of
resources. Desmarais also uti-

Take a hit of


'Reefer Madness'


Campy musical
retells classic
drug-horror story
L ock up the youngsters,
cover grandma's eyes and
batten down the hatches.
"Reefer Madness, the
Musical" is coming to the
Waterfront Playhouse in Key
West starting Wednesday. Based
on the 1936 propaganda movie,
the outrageously twisted musical
of sex, drugs and show tunes
runs until March 22.
The music, lyrics and book
were the brainchild of Dan
Studney ("Desperate
Housewives") and Kevin
Murphy ("The Simpsons"), who
felt the campy movie was beg-
ging to be made into a musical.
USA Today calls "Reefer
Madness, The Musical" a
"delirious romp, which reaches
highs of intoxicating goofiness."
Reefer Madness" tells the
story of Jimmy Harper, an


upstanding youth who becomes
a whacked-out pot fiend after
just one toke of the evil reefer.
We first meet Jimmy and his
plucky girlfriend Mary Lane at
the local soda shop. Mary
informs Jimmy she's entered
them into a dance contest. Just
one problem - Jimmy can't
dance.
Enter Jack, the evil pot push-
er who trolls the soda shop for
his teenage victims. Jack assures
Jimmy he can teach him to
dance, and brings Jimmy to his
reefer den - den of evil! Here
he meets a group of tainted mis-
fits and is immediately sucked
into a world of weed freaks,
orgies, hallucinations and
brownies.
Jimmy is played by Marc
Crow, who recently moved from
Fort Lauderdale. where he did
"West Side Story" and "Les
Miserables." Mary Lane is
played by Kristen Bussiere, who
was imported for the role but

was seen locally in "Bat Boy" at
the Red Bar Bam.
Denis Hyland ("Rocky
Horror Show." "Equus," "The
Nutcracker Key West") plays
Jack, the super smooth propri-
etor of the reefer den, with Mary
Falconer ("The Best Man,"
"Urinetown," "Jeffrey") playing
Mac, the long-suffering hostess
of the den.

ON DISPLAY TONIGHT: This is 'Garrison Bight Sunday,' one of just numerous works by Peter
Vey, whose'Islands of Dreamers' show is tonight from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Gallery on Greene,
606 Greene St., Key West. Vey uses primed instead of raw canvas and works with a palette
knife. Once it sets, the oil pigment can't be pushed around further or overloaded with
more color or the results will turn muddy. He's closest in spirit to impressionists and
post-impressionists.

Canes rattle


the Sabres


Coral Shores
piles on runs
in 11-0 rout
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.corn


Defensive errors were not
going to cost Coral Shores a sec-
ond time to start of the baseball
season.
The Hurricanes assembled an
airtight effort Thursday to blank
St. Brendan, 11-0. for the first
win of the regular season.
The game ended in the top of
the fifth inning when third base-
man Drew Nobregas fielded a
grounder for a force out, then
turned the double play with a
throw to first.
"A real nice play," described
head coach Jeff Meyers, pointing
out that it was the third double
play of the shortened game.
"Everyone played and we made
several defensive gems in the
field."
Against LaSalle in the regular-


season opener Feb. 15. the Canes
committed errors that helped the
Royals rally for the win. But
LaSalle. a defending district
champion, is a more formidable
opponent than St. Brendan.
Coral Shores used three pitch-
ers - Jorge Suarez. Mike Rentz
and Stephen Fowler - to hold
St. Brendan's visiting Sabres
scoreless and hitless.
Senior third baseman Chris
Noble drove in three Hurricanes
with two hits.
The Canes stay busy with four
ganes in an eight-day span this
week.
Coral Shores (1-1) was sched-
uled to travel to Palmer Trinity on
Friday for its first game in the
new South Florida Baseball
Conference (results not available
at press time).
The Canes visit Archbishop
Carroll on Tuesday before clos-
ing the week with two home
games, against Palmer on
Thursday and Miami Country
Day on Friday. Both home games
start at a3:45 p.m.


Coral Shores runner Stephen Fowler charges home on a
passed ball during an at-bat by teammate Mike Rentz in an
11-0 win over St. Brendan.


Fins fall to top Dade teams


A 4-0 lead
doesn't hold
against Victors
By RYAN McCARTHY
nnccarthy@keynoter.con

It made a good showing
against top-ranked teams in its
district, but the Marathon High
School baseball team remained
winless after consecutive loss-
es this week.
The Dolphins fell 4-1
Tuesday to Westminster
Christian School and 5-4
Wednesday against Miami
Christian.
Coach Luis Leal said the
team will build on the strong
performances against what the
Miami Herald ranked as the
top two teams in Class 2A this
season.
"We know that we can hang


with any team in our district:
we were right there with them.
They're a little upset because
they were right there and let
them slip away." Leal said.
Marathon got on the board
first against the Warriors
Tuesday after sophomore Jake
Sjursen was doubled home by
senior Jay Hegland.
Westminster tied the game at
1-1 in the third inning with a
lead off home run.
The Warriors capitalized on
Dolphin miscues in the fifth,
which put runners in scoring
position and led to two runs.
Trailing 4-1 in the sixth.
Leal said he thought Hegland
had tied the game with one
swing of the bat.
"Jay came up in the bottom
of the sixth with two men on
and hit a long fly ball to left-
center that the wind knocked

3-1 Key West
hosts Reagan
at 1 today
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

The designated hitter and
an infielder making his first
varsity start got the clutch
hits Wednesday afternoon in
Key West High School's 7-1
victory over St. Brendan in a
District 16-4A game in
Miami.
A double by Kyle Lepine,
the senior DH and cleanup
batter, and a single by Noah
Josephson, who started at
third base in place of Charlie
Walker-Yhap, each drove in
two runs during a five-run


third inning that gave the
Conchs a 5-0 lead.
Both players impressed
coach Miguel Menendez.
"Lepine is a very good
high school hitter,"
Menendez said. "His biggest
problem sometimes is a lack
of self-confidence. When he
gets in a groove, he is hard to
get out. He's just a big strong
kid."
Josephson, a junior who
started because Walker-Yhap
had a bothersome arm, made
an error in the first inning
before coming through with
his bat in the third.
"I think he was a little
nervous," Menendez said,

Conch tennis sweeps St. Brendan


Coach wants
consistency
to improve
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Paul Findlay enjoys coach-
ing the Key West High School
tennis team but is realistic
enough to realize that the
Conchs, faced with superior
Miami-area talent, can rise only
so far.
"We're a little better than we
were last year, but it's the same
old story - we either demolish
teams or teams kill us," he said
Thursday morning, sun-bur-
nished after giving a private les-
son at the Leland "Skipper"
Wakefield Albury Tennis


Courts, where he has been the
longtime pro.
He was in his well-kept pro
shop, where $189 rackets wait-
ed to be sold.
He was happy because on
Tuesday afternoon both the
Conch boys and girls teams
defeated St. Brendan in a
District 16 match in Miami. St.
Brendan is a weak district oppo-
nent, as is Monsignor Pace.
But the district also holds
private-school powers such as
Gulliver Prep, LaSalle, Belen
Jesuit and Doral Academy, all of
whom have seasoned players at
No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 singles
who participate in tournaments
year round.
Under a new format, a team
must finish first or second in its


district to go on to the state
playoffs.
"We're not going to be first
or second," Findlay said.
And it is hard for the Conchs
to improve.
"Unless we play these
[Miami] kids all the time, what
good does it do?" Findlay said.
"We play them once a week, but
we need to play them all the
time. So we improve at a slow
rate."
At practice the other day.
Findlay told his players, "You
need to be more competitive
when you are playing each
other, because you're all you've
got."
The Conch boys, who
improved to 2-1 on the season,
defeated St. Brendan, 5-2. No. I
senior Nick Lark lost, 8-0, to,
Findlay said, a talented

Marathon junior Toby Eigner is brushed back during a Tuesday loss to Westminster Christian
School. Eigner, the Dolphins' ace, threw a complete game with three strikeouts, two walks and
seven hits allowed.


Westwood comes Thursday


MARATHON / From 48

down. Everyone thought it was
going," Leal said. "It was a
great game, they just played a
little better than we did and got
some timely hits with guys on
base."
Hegland, Sjursen and senior
catcher Chris Garrett all went
l-for-3. Toby Eigner pitched a
complete game, striking out
three and allowing seven hits.
The Dolphins lost what
Leal called "a heartbreaker"


Wednesday to the Victors.
They led 4-0 before surrender-
ing three runs in the bottom of
the seventh to lose the game.
Leal said the team was
fatigued after playing their
seventh game in 11 days (the
Dolphins are 0-5; two of those
games were preseason).
Marathon scored one run in
each of the first three innings
and another in the fifth in sup-
port of senior George
Hoffman, who started the
game for the Dolphins.
A Hegland error - the


team's only of the game - led
to one run and a two-run dou-
ble scored the tying and win-
ning run for the Warriors.
Senior Scan O' Connor had
a huge game for the Dolphins.
going 2-for-3 with a home run
and a double, while scoring

Senior J.P. McCabe was 3-3

The Dolphins are scheduled
to host Westwood Christian
School Thursday at 6 p.m.


Reagan visits Conchs today


KEY WEST / From 48

but he showed why he is so
valuable to us by coming
through with that single. He is
key for us because he can play
anywhere in the infield."
The Conchs (3-1, 1-0 in
district) followed their big
third inning with two more
runs in the fourth, the second
coming on a sacrifice fly by
Lepine.


Whereas St. Brendan start-
ing pitcher Thomas Prescott
labored with 90 pitches in the
first three innings, Key West
starter Drew Rivera breezed
through four shutout innings,
giving up four hits. Kevin
Hernandez took over in the
fifth and allowed one run and
one hit the last three innings.
"He is a kid that just this
year started focusing on pitch-
ing exclusively," Menendez
said of Hernandez. "His best


days are ahead of him."
Key West shortstop Raiko
Alfonso started two double
plays and ended the game by
throwing out a batter whose
ground ball had deflected off
Hernandez's glove.
The Conchs will play
Ronald Reagan at 1 p.m. today
at Rex Weech Field. Their
game Friday night against
Monsignor Pace was complet-
ed too late for today's paper.

Carrollton


outplays Fins


But Brossard
bounces back
with easy win
By RYAN McCARTHY
nnccarthy@keynoter.con


Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHY
Marisa Brossard returns a shot against Carrollton Tuesday. She
rebounded from a 14-game loss at Key West to defeat her
opponent, 8-2.


The Marathon High School
girls tennis team lost its first
match of the season Tuesday
against Carrollton School, 5-2.
The Dolphins (2-1) were
slowed by illness and injury, as
No. 2 and 3 players Angela
Farello and Rose Bellevue
were under the weather and
Michele Bellevue missed the
match with knee injury.
"With two of our players
not feeling well and one that
normally plays out, we didn't
have 100 percent of our com-
pliment there," coach Mark
Hooper said.
Still, Hooper said the team
played well despite the cir-
cumstances.
"It was a very good match.


closer than it looked on the
scores," he said.
Freshman standout Marisa
Brossard bounced back nicely
from a defeat at the hands of'
Key West High School junior
Gabby Scammacca Feb. 12.
Brossard handily defeated her
eighth-grade opponent, 8-2.
Hooper said Brossard's
"secret shot," the drop shot,
and her willingness to attack
the net were the keys to her
easy victory.
"Marisa played an outstand-
ing match. She hit the ball
where she needed to hit it and
she hit the drop shot beautiful-
ly," he said.
Hooper says Brossard was
to face a stiff test Friday when
the Dolphins visited Miami
Country Day. Her senior oppo-
nent is ranked third in the state
in her age group, but he said
she and boys No. 1 John
Danaher relish the opportunity
to play against the other team's
best.
"John is playing against
seniors; he goes in as the
underdog and he's always
eager to play." Hooper said of
the eighth-grader. "That's why
they're both playing No. 1."
Carrollton is an all-girls
school, so the boys team did
not play in the match.
Fighting illness. Farello fell
4-8 in her singles match before
teaming with Brossard to
notch the Dolphins' only other
win in a doubles match. 8-6.
"Angela was weak to start
with and the girl just wore her
down," Hooper said of
Farello's singles match. "I was
glad she was ready to go back
out there."
In other singles matches,
Bellevue lost 4-8, freshman
Kelsey Wonderlin lost 1-8 and
freshman Annabelle Walker
lost 4-8 filling in at No. 5.
Bellevue and Wonderlin
dropped their doubles match 3-
8.
Results of the Dolphins'
Friday match were not avail-
able at press time. They will
play two matches today
against Palmer Trinity School
and Westminster Christian
School.

Cane girls stun


the Warriors

Coral Shores' girls tennis team
scored a statement win Thursday
over a strong Westminster
Christian program.
The Lady Canes went 4-1 in
singles for their second straight
team win to start the season.
"This was a great test for our
girls," coach Blake Fry said.
"Westminster is a very experi-
enced and talented team so a 5-2
win is a great confidence-
builder."
Allison Rhyne at No. 1 scored
a solid 8-4 win over
Westminster's Taylor Chao, who
has defeated Rhyne in previous
meetings. "They've been going
after each other for three years,"
Fry said.
The other singles wins were
by razor-thin margins.
Simona Lichvar at No. 4
pulled out a 9-8 tiebreaker after
an 8-8 regulation set to end a gru-
eling two-hour duel.


Annie Leopold at No. 3 and
Michaela Walters at No. 5 each
scored 8-6 decisions in their pro
sets.
Casey Rhyne at No. 2 singles
lost, 8-4, but teamed with Tianna
Morton to win No. 2 doubles, 8-3.
Westminster won No. 1 doubles
over Rhyme-Leopold, 8-6.
"Each girl was tested today
and I was exceptionally pleased
with their efforts," Fry said.
"They played tough, especially
for this early in the season."
Things did not go as well on
the boy's side, Westminster scor-
ing a 7-0 win of the young
Hurricane roster.
Zack Stroup and Aaron
Holmbraker, the top two singles
players, turned in the match's
most competitive performance at
No. I doubles, an 8-4 loss.
Coral Shores goes on the road
but stays in the Keys this week
with Monday match at Marathon
High School and a Wednesday
match Key West High School.

Coral Shores boys lacrosse
Hurricanes just circled March 4
en the schedule, the rematch of a
9-2 loss at home Tuesday to
American Heritage of Boca
Raton.
"I'm definitely looking for-
ward to seeing them again, as are
the players," Cane coach Erik
Bryan said. "It should be inter-
esting to see how we do with our
full squad."
The Canes were missing four
starters and six other players for
a variety of reasons Tuesday.
Heritage's edge in experience
and size showed.
"American Heritage played a
very rough-and-tumble game,"
Bryan said. "Some of our play-
ers were able give as much as


they got, but most weren't."
He noted, "The difference
between our two teams is really
not as bad as the score would
indicate. Our kids were pretty
beat up, playing their third game
in five. They didn't have the
jump they had in the first games
of the season."
Team captain lan O'Hara, a
junior, moved to the front and
scored his career goal for Coral
Shores "on a great outside
bounce shot to the upper corner"
of the Heritage net, Bryan said.
Devin Morris scored the
other goal, with Brett Berry get-
ting an assist.
Matt Perry won four face-offs
at center field, grabbed seven
ground balls and delivered three
big hits.
Perry, Morris and Berry all
are freshman, the coach pointed
out.
The Hurricanes (1-3) travel to
Ransom Everglades for a
Saturday game, then host
Gulliver Prep at 4 p.m. Tuesday.


Girls fall in OT .
Coral Shores' Lady Hunricanes
lost their undefeated record in a
15-13 loss at Cypress Bay on
Wednesday.
Brittany Wood and Rachel
Catanio each scored four goals
for the Lady Canes (3-1).
Vallarie Ostenson scored three
goals. Lexi Glista and Melissa
Sante each tallied a solo goal.
Overall, the Upper Keys
team "played a great game."
coach Mark Hall said.
Goalie Dannon Magrane had
seven saves against Cypress
Bay.
Catanio has 13 of the 41
Coral Shores goals this season.
followed by Ostensen (11) and
Wood (8).
Defender Kelsey Garcia
leads the club in ground balls
with 46.
The Lady Hurricanes host a
home Saturday game against
J.P. Taravella at noon, then trav-
el to a Thursday game at

Carroll doubles


up Lady Canes


2 home games
on schedule
for this week
Keynoter Staff

Coral Shores' Lady
Hurricanes try to get their
schedule back on track - and
back on the winning track -
this week.
Three of the first four
games on the fast-pitch soft-
ball schedule were rained out
or moved because of conflicts.
The Lady Canes (1-1) lost
the first of those makeup
games to Archbishop Carroll,
6-3, Thursday.
"Carroll got up on us, 6-0,
so Coach [Mike] Young and I
were proud to see our girls set-
tle down and fight to get back
in the game," coach Paul
Grewe said.
The Lady Canes broke the
shutout with a solo score in the
fourth, then rallied for two


runs in the fifth.
The comeback bid in the
fifth was ended by a close call
at the plate that went in favor
of Carroll.
"That should serve as a les-
son that we need to get in the
game earlier." Grewe said.
"We can't always count on
being able to come from
behind."
Offensive highlights for the
Lady Canes were not available
at press time.
Coral Shores was scheduled
to play Ransom Everglades
last night (results not in).
The Lady Hurricanes travel
Tuesday to Princeton
Christian, a Class A playoff
team for the last three years.
Coral Shores finishes the
week with back-to-back games
at home. Palmer Trinity visits
for a 4 p.m. Thursday game
and Archbishop Curley arrives
for a 7 p.m. Friday game.
