Card Sound road

proving more deadly


More traffic
from Stretch
may be factor
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Siaff Writer
k i ad lo,( @keynoter.com

Three people died in two
w weekend accidents just a week
apart on Card Sound Road in
February an odd occurrence
for a road generally not consid-
ered dangerous.
Both crashes a single-
ehicle accident that killed two
Homestead men Feb. 16 and a
three-vehicle collision that
killed a Key Largo man last
Sunday\ --took place in broad


daylight.
Traffic has increased on
County Road 905 and Card
Sound Road, often referred to
as the back door from the main-
land to the Keys. That could be
a contributing cause.
"Traffic [through the Card
Sound tollbooth] is up about 20
to 25 percent this year," said
Joe Medallion, a supervisor
with Monrroe County Public
Works in the Upper Keys.
"Most of it is because of the
construction" on U.S. 1,
Medallion said. "But I think
even without the construction,
the numbers would be up."

Legislature



convenes



on Tuesday


Saunders says
'nothing's safe'
from cutting
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Florida Legislature con-
venes Tuesday, and it's facing a
double whammy as it looks to cut
some $2 billion from the current
year's $70 billion operating
budget, the fiscal year for which
ends Sept. 30, while at the same
time crafting an even tighter
budget for fiscal 2008-09.
Gov. Charlie Crist has pro-
posed a $70 billion spending plan
for next year, as well, a budget
some say is too optimistic.
"Most agencies have been


primed to hold back for the cur-
rent-year budget cuts," state Rep.
Ron Saunders said. "It's the regu-
lar budget for next year that's
going to be tough."
Taxpayers are clamoring for
-.and getting lowered prop-
erty tax. But the cuts mean some-
thing's got to give, and many
worry it will come out of educa-
tion.
"We're in a 'let's wait and see
how bad it is attitude,'" Monroe
County School District Super-
intendent Randy Acevedo said.
School Board Chairman Steve
Pribramsky said Monroe
County's schools are in better
shape than some counties, in part

Droopy drawers,
official horse and
song among bills
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Florida Legislature has
some tough tasks ahead, but
some of the 700-plus bills up for
consideration this session are
weirder than usual. Take, for
instance, a bill specifically out-
lawing sex with animals.


"I don't think we have a whole
lot of that in the Keys," state Rep.
Ron Saunders said, "and it cer-
tainly seems to be something that
should be illegal, but apparently
something happened and there
were no laws to stop it."
The bill, co-sponsored by
Gayle Harrell and Evan Jenne, is
specific in detail, and would
make such behavior a felony.

A bill that would change the

Proponents of traditional

commercial fishing rather than
redeveloping the property into
luxury condos or resorts.

CARD SOUND / From 1

An exact count of vehicles
passing through the tollbooth
was not available at press time
but increased traffic may have
contributed to the accidents, said
Deputy Becky Herrin, informa-
tion officer for the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office, but so
did risky driving.
"A lot of it appears to have
been simply speeding and dian-
gerous driving," she said. "Card
Sound is a road where you can
easily wind up in the water if
you run off the road, so drive
carefully even if it looks safe."
Sheriff's Office patrol
deputies are well aware of the
two fatal accidents over two
weekends, Herrin said.
"We're spread pretty thin,"
she said. "Our traffic-patrol offi-
cers are out every weekend but
we have a lot of road to cover.
We get up to Card Sound when
possible, but there's all of U.S. 1
and the 18-Mile Stretch to con-
sider."
The two Homestead men
were killed Feb. 16 when their
vehicle, a 1998 Chevrolet sport-
utility vehicle, flipped and land-
ed in water near Saunders Creek
Bridge. The Chevrolet was trav-
eling at speeds estimated to be
around 80 mph, according to a
Florida Highway Patrol report,
when it skidded off the road and
into a hardwood tree.
The driver, 26, was killed
when hit by tree limbs. The pas-
senger, 22, apparently drowned


when the vehicle landed upside
down in about 4 feet of water.
Last Sunday, Steven
Newburn, 49, of Key Largo died
after he apparently lost control
of his southbound 2006 Toyota
near the S-curve at Steamboat
Creek Bridge.


Eight people

The Toyota crashed into one

borne, landing atop a second car.
Two people were taken to Miami
with serious injuries.
Newbum was a 20-year resi-
dent of the Keys who managed a

Coral session


is Wednesday.


Added rules
for protection
a possibility
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


How far will the federal gov-
ernment go to protect habitat for
staghom and elkhom coral?
That will be on the minds of
many attending this week's public
hearing on a plan to declare areas
of critical habitat for the threat-
ened species of branching corals.
Even staff with the Florida
Keys National Marine Sanctuary,
considered to. be lead agency in
protecting Keys corals, "don't
know what [the habitat propos-
als] are going to look like,"
Superintendent Dave Score said.
The National Marine Fisheries
Service has decided that a "criti-
cal habitat" designation should
be enacted for staghom and
elkhom coral.
A session at 7 p.m. Wednesday
at the Marathon Government
Center will including a briefing
on what happens next, and will
take public comment on the habi-
tat designation.
The Florida habitat initially
targeted includes from Palm
Beach to the Dry Tortugas.
Members of the Keys
Sanctuary Advisory Council dis-
cussed the issue with Fisheries
Service staff at the council's
February meeting.
"The members obviously are
supportive of any kind of recov-
ery effort for the corals," said
Score, "but several members felt
pretty strongly that good regula-
tions already are in place under
[the sanctuary's] management
plan."
Specifically, many in the Keys
dive-tourism industry worry
some protective measures even-
tually could include banning
recreational divers from popular
reef spots where the corals grow.
"If they are talking about not
letting people into an area, that
would be a concern," said Brenda
Mace, co-owner of Conch
Republic Divers in Tavemier and
a board member of the Upper
Keys Association of Dive and:
Snork6el Operators.' 'That' c1ilud


be disastrous for the Upper Keys
economy."
No decisions have been made
on any possible protection rules.
"It is estimated that more than
90 percent of these corals have
been lost because of disease, coral
bleaching, and tropical storm
damage," according to the
Fisheries Service. "Further, the
overall deterioration of coral reef
habitats appears to be compromis-
ing the species' ability to repro-
duce, making this proposed desig-
nation even more important."
The session in Marathon "is a
good opportunity for people to
find out what's going on," Score
said. "Even if [Fisheries Service
staff] may not have specific
answers, it's a chance get the
questions on the record, and
make them aware of possible
implications for the local com-
munity."
Staghom and elkhorn, the
most recognizable corals on the
reef tract, have been reduced in
number by coral disease and hur-
ricanes. Environmental groups
believe global warning may be
the most significant factor in the
decline, which is starkly visible
to even casual reef visitors.
Sanctuary rules and other laws
already prohibit harvesting or
destroying corals.

Keys Opinion


It's Round 2 on

the insurance front

Tuesday, the Florida Legislature begins its 2008 session.
But on Monday, there's a more critical meeting taking place
at Marathon High School.
That's when Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe (FIRM) lays out
important issues facing everyone who pays for windstorm
insurance.
The grassroots group is girding for another battle in
Tallahassee during a legislative session expected to be particu-
larly tough and where insurance reform could get lost.
Monday's meeting, which begins at 6:30 p.m., will be fol-
lowed Wednesday by a similar session at Key West High and
then on Thursday at Coral Shores High School. All three ses-
sions start at 6:30 p.m. (see story, Page 16).
What will the public hear at these rallies?
Some grim predictions of what lies ahead if Citizens Property
Insurance Corp. is allowed to increase rates without legislative
controls due to expire at the end of this year.
."Depending on the cost of reinsurance, we could be looking
at [increases] of anywhere from 91 percent to 123 percent,"
according to FIRM director Al Sachs.
That's on top of Monroe County's already-high windstorm
rates, which thanks to FIRM's political groundswell -
were rolled back in 2006.
However, that dispensation is due to expire at the end of this
year and that has FIRM worried.
All three meetings being held this week are designed to rally
the troops.
"We need for folks to be energized like they were before,"
says Heather Carruthers, a FIRM official who now sits on a
statewide task force that reviews Citizens' practices.
State Rep. Ron Saunders describes the expected insurance
battle this session using a sports analogy: "You can compare it
to a football game. The time has come to play both defense and
offense. On the defensive side, we've got to make sure none of
the good we've already done gets undone. And on offense, let's
see if we can get rates even lower."
That might be tough.
Senate President Ken Pruitt is quoted in Friday's Miami
Herald as saying that he sees little chance for any major insur-
ance revamp this year.
FIRM's stance is pretty simple: Require Citizens rates be
actuarial sound and risk models be transparent (versus the veil
of secrecy that surrounds for-profit insurers' hurricane-risk
models).
That's why the grassroots rallies beginning Monday are so
important. Your voices need to heard, or left to their own
devices expect the Legislature to do nothing, once again
leaving us holding the bag on windstorm rates.

Preserving waterfront can't include impeding rights


EDITOR:
Now let me see if I've got it straight. Sherry
Popham, recently resigned planning commis-
sioner and champion of no net loss of the work-
ing waterfront, wants to appropriate my fish-
house property for her "constituents."
Maintaining correctly that I would never give it
over to the public out of the goodness of my
heart, Mrs. Popham intends to wrest it from me
by the power of government.
Three county commissioners who also
support saving the working waterfront voted
against her heavy-handed, populist approach to
taking away a private citizen's property rights,
and have since been subjected to a withering
barrage of "throw the gang of three" out of
office.
The "no net loss" crowd, which has been
noticeably absent in support of commercial fish-
ermen the past 25 years, maintains that heartless
and greedy owners like myself will surely take
away all public access to the working waterfront
if their remaining property rights are not confis-
cated immediately.
Not to digress here, folks, but does anyone
know what public access actually means? I tried
to find out from the Planning Commission, but
they didn't really know. Does it mean that all


people can wander my private property at will,
or just local citizens? Will the homeless be able
to use it like they do Bayview Park?
Well, anyway, it now comes out that the
Pophams entertained a $13 million offer from
developers for their own working waterfront
property. Now, lest anyone accuse her of duplic-
ity, Mrs. Popham assures us that she had a plan
to keep it as working waterfront. A five-year "no
change of use" clause in the sales contract
would have given the county time to'implement
waterfront development restrictions, as well as
the city of Marathon, where her property is safe-
ly located (I wonder what the potential buyers
thought of this plan?).
Far be it from me to object to the Pophams'
sale of their property. However, let us clearly
understand that the reason the working-water-
front actions are causing so much controversy is
because they propose to take away private prop-
erty without just compensation. The only fair
and proper way to save the working waterfront
is through purchase, and if I am finally forced
out of business, I hope the "no net loss" crowd
will work as hard to get the county to.buy the
property as it has to seize it.

Foundation reaches out to help


EDITOR: -
Since our daughter Rose Detwiler was diag-
nosed with leukemia in November, our family
has been the beneficiary of an overwhelming
outpouring of community support and well
wishes. It is a credit to this community that
there are so many wonderful people and organi-
zations that step forward to help families in
their time of need.
The Coldwell Banker Schmitt Charitable
Foundation generously and unasked by us made
a weighty contribution to our daughter's med-

Keys again come through
EDITOR:
This is for the residents of Sombrero Marina
and my co-workers at the Dockside Bar and Grill.
As a 12-year resident of Marathon, I have often
been impressed by how many caring and compas-
sionate people live in our little town, particularly'
among the boating community. That thought was
driven home in the days following Feb. 15, when a
galley fire aboard my boat caused grievous harm
to my home and some damage to my person.
There are far too many people to thank individ-
ually so I hope this letter will suffice. Thank you
and God bless. There are a few people that went
so far beyond the pale that I feel compelled to
thank them: The kitchen crew, which circled the
wagons and took up the slack of my absence; my
employers Lee, Lance and Dave, who held my job
for me and procured shelter from the storm; and
Charlie and Donna for changing my dressings.
Y'all are the best.

ical expenses when it discovered our situation.
The foundation does not look for thanks, but
only communicated a desire that recipients of
their assistance spread the word to others in
need that this organization exists and that peo-
ple in need can apply for assistance.
I would very much like to thank the
Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real Estate agents,
affiliates and business partners and urge anyone
in the community in need of support to apply to
their charitable foundation.
As I have said, we live. in a wonderful and
giving area and to have a foundation like this in
the Keys is a credit to our community.

Don't over-feed the deputies


EDITOR:
I had a letter published about the
grossly overweight deputies in this
county. The Sheriff's Office should
require a physical training course for
all law enforcement employees.
One problem as I see it is the free
food or 50 percent discount the
deputies receive from some of the
local restaurants. While in line to


order my food, I noticed the deputy
in front was charged half what I paid.
I often wondered what attracted the
large group of deputies to some
restaurants. Isn't that an unfair prac-
tice and illegal?
If things continue, we will have to
elect Boss Hog for sheriff.

God and science are compatible


EDITOR:
It is with sadness that I read that
the Florida Board of Education (sup-
ported in full by the Monroe County
School Board) has escalated
Darwin's theory of evolution to
dogma that cannot be questioned.
The false compromise of calling it a
scientific theory will do absolutely
nothing to allow teachers to address
the many flaws of evolution.
The new standard applied to evo-
lution now praised as "the funda-
mental concept underlying all of
biology" does not lend itself to dis-
cussion or disagreement. Why not
put Darwin (evolution) and God
(intelligent design) before the stu-
dents and let them make an
informed, intellectual decision?
Unfortunately that cannot be done
because God has been removed from
our public schools. A lie has been
substituted for the truth to our most
valuable asset our children. How
grievous and with eternal conse-
quences.
Darwinism is the atheists' religion
and certainly has nothing to do with
the God of the Bible who created all


things and in whose image we are
created Genesis chapter 1.
Certainly God and science are com-
patible since He made all things.
To say that there is no conflict
between religion and evolution as
now taught is only true for those
who accept Darwinism as a religion.
It will never be for those of us who
put our faith in God the creator.-

Commission vote went opposite of intent


EDITOR:
Last Stand and a group of Key
West residents have sued the city of
Key West and Parrot Key
Associates over the issue of'the
transfer of transient rental licenses.
The city's encoded purpose for
the transfer of transient licenses is
to remove daily rentals and their
accompanying disorder from resi-
dential neighborhoods and to pro-
mote permanent housing in their
place. Therefore, city regulation
states that such a license transfer
can originate only from a property
in a zone where transient licenses
are not currently permitted.
In 2006, as part of the develop-
ment plan for Parrot Key (the old
Hampton Inn on North Roosevelt
Boulevard), the City Commission
reversed the regulation and its
intentions on a last-minute request
by the developer. This purported -
reversal allowed transient licenses


to be transferred from zones where
they are permitted (e.g., from hotels
like the Hampton Inn), an action
nullifying the city's transient
license transfer ordinance and its
intent.
This change, by its nature, is a
legislative action that requires pub-
lic notification, two hearings by the
City Commission and public input.
This was not done and therefore we
believe that the City Commission's
2006 action is invalid.
Last Stand strongly believes in
public input to the legislative
process as well as promotion of the
quality of life fostered by the
removal of transient licenses from
neighborhoods and saving perma-
nent housing for Key West citizens.
Hence, the lawsuit to reinstate the
original ordinance and its intent.

President, Last Stand

Hurting economy flows


steadily down to Keys


Headlines in financial news this week
were ominous:
"Euro hits record high against dollar."
"Oil surges to highest mark ever."
"Inflation surges to 16-year high."
It's enough to make an already weak
economy take to bed for some serious
meds.
But what does it mean to us here in
the Keys, where we often believe our-
selves immune from the economic
winds that buffet other parts of the U.S.?
Well, for one thing, you're seeing a lot
more foreign visitors here
thanks to that first headline
about the weak dollar versus
the euro.
I've been around long
enough to remember when
the U.S. dollar was the global
standard for strength and
security.
But when oil prices hit
record highs, it made the
weak dollar even more vul-
nerable, since it's clear that
oil producing countries being
paid in dollars are looking for Wayne I
ways to offset the more than Wynti
25 percent drop in value of Keynotei
our currency.
It should come as no surprise, then,
that oil prices are moving independent
of the normal demand supply equation.
And here in the Keys, high prices at
the gas pump translate very directly into
fewer visitors, which means less money
for our primary economy tourism.
In fact, Smith Travel Research's report
on room rates and occupancy trends
showed the Keys losing on both meas-
ures in January (see story, Page 23).
Keys occupancy dropped four percent
in January and room rates were down
two percent, according to Smith Travel.
In contrast, Miami Herald business
writer Douglas Hanks reported that
Broward County's lodging industry saw
room revenue grow six percent in
January with modest gains in occupancy.
In Miami-Dade, the Smith Travel
reports were even more upbeat, showing
a 10 percent gain in revenue on a four
percent growth in occupancy.
January's drop in the Keys' reported
numbers is the first time both occupan-
cy and room revenue have dropped
since August 2006, Hanks reported ear-
lier this week.
There is more glum news on the eco-
nomic front beyond oil prices, weak
dollar and reduced domestic travel.
New-home sales in January slid to a
level not seen in more than a dozen
years, according to the latest Census
Bureau reports released on Wednesday.


Housing prices nationwide dropped
nearly 9 percent in the fourth quarter of
2007 compared to same period the pre-
vious year. Standard & Poor's described
that as the "sharpest drop" in the index's
history.
Reduced home values and slower
sales activity translate into reduced bor-
rowing capacity, which in turn affects
the sale of luxury goods like boats and
autos and even pricey vacations.
Pretty much everyone has figured out
by now that Americans were using equi-
ty in their homes as a giant
piggy bank and borrowing
against future values. As
long as the real estate market
headed ever upward, the bet
was working.
Now, of course, all bets are
>. Ioff as foreclosures soar
through the roof and the
banking industry writes
^ down billions in bad loans,
especially in states where
real estate experienced rapid
and unsustainable year-over-
larkham year increases.
Puliskhe That includes the Keys, of
Publisher course, so in addition to suf-
fering through a weak tourism
economy, we have the added layer of a
weak housing market.
Even with signs that Keys resales are-
starting to tick upward when compared
to the same period last year, the days of
double-digit appreciation appear to be
over at least for now.
That, in turn, means more belt tighten-
ing by all public entities that rely on
property taxes to fund local govern-
ment, along with a severe dip in state
revenue, which is highly dependent on
sales taxes.
As people spend less, Florida's rev-
enue base shrinks.
You'll read in today's Keynoter about
more budget cuts coming for our public
school system, and earlier this week we
reported on cuts hitting Florida Keys
Community College, which also
depends on state funding.
All this is part of a $542 million reduc-
tion in what Florida will spend on educa-
tion between now and the end of June.
Statewide, lawmakers meet this com-
ing week to find another $2.5 billion in
cuts for the next state budget, which
begins Oct. 1 (covers 2008-09 spending).
The Herald's Tallahassee bureau
report on budget cutting ahead quotes
state Rep. Joe Pickers, who chairs the
House Schools and Learning Council:
"However bad you think it is, it's worse
than that," the Palatka Republican said.
That about says it All.

Fire and rescue fees likely coming


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


A workshop Wednesday is
designed to- help the Monroe
County Commission better
understand what's involved in
imposing a fire fee, according to
acting County Administrator
Debbie Frederick.
"The consultants are coming
in to inform them how fire
assessments work," she said.
The workshop starts at 10
a.m. Wednesday at the Harvey
Government Center in Key West.
Last week during its regular
monthly meeting in Key Largo,
the commission approved adver-
tising an ordinance to levy a fire
rescue assessment. The ordi-
nance will be on the March 19
regular commission agenda.
"The budget for Monroe
County Fire Rescue services
over the past several years has
failed to allow for capital pro-


grams and staffing levels ade-
quate to meet state and national
mandated levels," Susan Hover
explained in a memo to the com-
mission. Hover works in the
county's Emergency Services
Department as an executive
assistant.
"As a result," she continued,
Fire Rescue "has identified fund-
ing needs that could be met by a
non-ad valorem assessment,
which means that the specific cit-
izens who are using the benefits
would be paying for the servic-
es."
Monroe County Fire Chief
Wayne Hinnant and his predeces-
sor James Callahan have both
warned the commission the
department is in need of
upgrades for equipment and
buildings.
The county is in the process of
upgrading several fire stations.


"Contractors are ready to go
on the Big Pine station," County
Engineer David Koppel said.
That station is just waiting for
county permits, he said.
The Conch Key station was
held up because of negotiations
with Marathon to explore a pos-
sible joint effort, Koppel said,
but now that Marathon is doing
its own thing, the county is ready


to proceed.
"We recently met with the
chief and are going to proceed
with the construction of an addi-
tion to the station and renovation
of the remaining part of the sta-
tion," Koppel said.
The Stock Island fire station is
probably the farthest from com-
pletion at this point. Koppel said
the county is looking at a way of


financing a new parcel of land.
The existing station sits sur-
rounded by streets in an odd little
intersection, and has no room for
expansion.
According to Frederick, con-
sultant Government Services
Group Inc. will take about an
hour to give the commission an
overview of the process of
imposing a new assessment.


FEMA OKs $2.1M for city


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com.


The city of Marathon has
received some good news that
might quell some of the many
critics of its new fire station at
Florida Keys Marathon Airport.
Deputy City Manager C.J.
Geotis, along with Community
Services Director Susie Thomas,
has secured $2,156,486 in grant
funding from the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
to be used in full toward the sta-
tion, which has been open since
November.
Geotis said he was able to


secure the funding through a
FEMA contact he established
while attempting to sort out fund-
ing for the ongoing 33rd Street
boat-ramp project. The city
awarded that contract to Coral
Marine Construction at its regular
meeting Tuesday.
"We had applied for FEMA
funding at one time and it was
turned down. When I got the proj-
ect, we went back and approached
it in a different manner and we
were able to work it out," Geotis
said, noting Thomas provided
details on the project's history


while he negotiated with FEMA.
Geotis said portions of the sta-
tion were paid for with borrowed
or bonded funds, which the grant
money will be used to repay.
Geotis said the city expects a wire
transfer within the week and that
the money will go into the city's
capital infrastructure fund.
The fire station's $6.1 million
tab has drawn the ire of many
cost-conscious residents since the
City Council approved its origi-
nal plans in July 2005.
"The city was beat up real bad
over the cost of the fire station,
but this will offset a lot of the
cost," Geotis said.

Mayor Dave Boemer to begin

Stranded whale dies,
necropsy is scheduled

A 10.5-foot pygmy sperm
whale that stranded off
Islamorada Feb. 23 died
Wednesday despite rehabilitation
efforts by a group of marine-
mammal stranding volunteers.
Volunteers were beginning to
prepare the whale for an
endoscopy, but before it began,
the whale died, according to
Robert Lingenfelser, president of
the Marine Mammal Conser-
vancy in Key Largo. The proce-
dure was to visually examine the
whale's upper digestive system
with a medical camera.
A necropsy is to be performed
Wednesday at the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Ad-
ministration's National Marine
Fisheries Laboratory in Miami.
"I have no idea why he died,"
Lingenfelser said. "He seemed to
be doing better and his heart
looked good."

The Marathon City Council
took the first steps Tuesday to
replace City Manager Mike Puto,
who tendered his resignation Feb.
12.
Opinions of council members
varied Tuesday over how to con-
duct the search, but they eventu-
ally passed a motion to accept
applications through March 25.
They will then review them and
plan to decide on a new manager
within two weeks from that date.
How they will specifically
advertise the job remains unclear.

Accused murderer
on hunger strike

Alleged murderer Johnny Ray
Holt on Friday was into his
eighth-day of a hunger strike
that's led him to lose 20 pounds.
Holt, 25, is protesting his
placement in the Monroe County
Detention Center's "high-profile
disciplinary" cellblock, Sheriff's
Office spokeswoman Becky
Herrin said. Holt wants to be
transferred to the general popula-
tion but the violent nature of the
crimes he's been charged with
prohibit him from that area,
which gives inmates more privi-
leges.
Herrin said Holt is now in the
prison's sick bay, where he's get-
ting intravenous therapy and able
to receive immediate medical
care.
Holt, an Alabama native, is
charged in the killing of Rodger
Keller, a 63-year-old botanist for
the Monroe Association of
Retarded Citizens. Keller was
found shot to death in his Key
West home in March 2006.
While in jail, Holt was also
charged with battery on a fellow
detainee in June 2006.
Holt's next hearing on the
murder charge is March 17 at
8:30 a.m. before Circuit 'C6urt
Judge Wayne Miller. 1 n'


between the two local applicants
who've shown in the job, Deputy
City Manager C.J. Geotis and
Key Colony Beach Mayor Clyde
Burnett. Burnett recently dropped
his re-election bid to pursue the
top job in Marathon.
"I would personally like to
rank these two candidates tonight
and get the city running smooth-
ly. I think we have two very qual-
ified candidates already
announced," Cinque said.
Friday, Marathon resident and
longtime Delta Airlines employee
Allen Pedersen told the Keynoter
he plans to submit his resume to
the city. Pedersen said he worked
for Delta in management posi-
tions for 34 years before retiring
in 2006.
Pedersen said he hopes to
make a difference in how city
management applies to the com-


munity.
"Marathon is really the best-
kept secret in the Keys; it's been"
under marketed. We have the
tools to make a change and offset
Key West," Pedersen said.
As for the search, council
members Marilyn Tempest and
Don Vasil took a more moderate
approach, suggesting a short
search. Tempest said she prefers
the search go no further than 30
miles in either direction from the
city.
"It's not easy to have people
step up into a job like that and it
made me think we don't need to
endure the ordeal of head-
hunters," Tempest said, suggest-
ing a month is ample time.
Vasil concurred, but said he
feels a broader search is in order.
He said not only Monroe County,
but also South Florida applicants
should be considered.
"I feel we owe it to the public

to put out a minimal local search.
Do it quickly, have it last no
longer than a month and see if
there are other local contenders,"
he said.
"I'm very happy locals want
to take the reins and move for-
ward. I have a preference for peo-
ple who live here; it's a known
commodity," Vice Mayor Chris
Bull said, noting he still feels a
moderate search is in order.
Mayor Pete Worthington was
the lone dissenter in the group.
He said he feels a longer, more-
thorough search should be done.
"I thought we were going to
do more of a search and encour-
age candidates to apply and see

what's out there," he said. "I
think we have to remember the
manager works for the council. I
work for the people and we have
to find a manager, hopefully for
the next five or 10 years."
City Attorney Jimmy Morales
questioned the council on what
type- of compensation package it
would offer.
"Are we going to be competi-
tive or stay in line with a more
conservative package?" Morales
asked.
Puto, still in the job, earns just
over $110,000 and received no
housing allowance. Both Geotis
and Burnett are homeowners.

Singh, council spar

By RYAN McCARTHY | e.
rmccarthy@keynoter.com .


The Marathon City Council
ruffled the feathers of developer
Pritam Singh on Tuesday, when'it
declined to grant him a certificate
of occupancy to use a meeting
space at his Tranquility Bay
Resort.
Singh appeared cordial when
he initially addressed council, but
eventually threatened a lawsuit
and accused the city of using its
Building Department as a polic-
ing entity to prevent the space
from being used.
"The building has gone
through a change of use; it used
to be a dormitory and it's been

Marathon City Council Tuesday. Singh was lobbying for a cer-
tificate of occupancy to be issued for a converted meeting
space at his Tranquility Bay resort property located near mile
marker 48.


changed into a place of assembly.
Building code requirements
require a hand rail on each side of
the stairway and we don't have a
hand rail on either side of the
main entry and one [side] on the
back," new Marathon Building
Official Ron Wampler told the
Keynoter.
"The reason I think it's kept
going on is so we can have this
meeting," Singh said. "We don't
believe you have the right to use
your Building Department as
[police] to prevent us from using
the space."
City Attorney Jimmy Morales
advised the council Singh's
development agreement explicit-
ly states no CO would be given
out for the building before
required affordable units are
complete, and said any develop-
ment agreement in the city would
be worthless if that provision
could not be enforced.
At issue was Singh's failure to
follow through on a June 2007
promise to build 12 affordable
housing units at his Tranquility
Bay and Coral Lagoon proper-
ties. Nine of the units were
required, six from Tranquility
and three from Coral Lagoon, as
part of his. development agree-
ment with the city. An additional
three were pledged.
Singh explained Tuesday, as
he did last June, that the housing
had slipped through the cracks in
the wake of the Singh Co.'s
involvement with a struggling
Cay Clubs Resorts and Marinas.


It was supposed to have been
completed some time ago.
"I was persuaded to do the
deal with Cay Clubs and they
became the people that were
going to do it. The meeting space
didn't start, but neither did the
affordable housing," Singh said,
noting he feels his company has
lived up to the intended, albeit
delayed, timeline.
Singh told council he esti-
mates between 10 and 15 percent
of the bookings at Tranquility
Bay would require meeting
space, which would in turn create
business in the community.
Councilmen Don Vasil and
Mike Cinque were adamant
Singh not be allowed to use the
meeting space before the afford-
able units were complete.
"I'm normally the first one to
compliment staff; I don't think
this was appropriate to bring
before council. We have a devel-
opment agreement that was not
met and direction should have
already been there," Vasil said.
"To give some grace here would
be sending a poor message to the
people."
Councilwoman Marilyn
Tempest said she felt city staff
"contributed to some of the con-
fusion" and that she would be
willing to negotiate with him for
the CO.
Both Vice Mayor Chris Bull
and Mayor Pete Worthington said
they would like to see the city
come to a compromise.

New crackdown for chickens


City targets
those feeding
the loud fowl
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Keynoter photo by KYLE TEAL
The popular restaurant Blue Heaven in Bahama Village
attracts many Key West chickens. A new city move to crack
down on people feeding chickens started this week.


Chicken feeders beware: The
city of Key West has your number.
Due to increasing complaints
of the crowing cocks, Assistant
City Manager John Jones says
Code Compliance officers are on
the lookout for chicken-feeding
offenders. A city ordinance draft-
ed in 1992 requires the animals
be caged if they're fed on some-
one's property.
"They're a pest and a health
hazard," City Manager Jim Scholl
said of the more than 3,000 chick-
ens that roam the island.
First-time offenders get a
warning and then a citation of up
to $500 for those caught "aiding a
public nuisance" a second time.
Not only are the feathered ani-
mals, which crow all night, a
scapegoat for many Key Westers'
insomnia, they could also pose
health risks. Jones says that
because the critters are deemed a

health hazard, they can be killed
in a humane manner.
"You can't waterboard the
chickens," he said. "We don't
want the [American Civil
Liberties Union] coming in here.
You can snap their necks,
though."
The way Jones describes it,
the crackdown will show signs of
crime scene-investigations, with
eyewitness reports and photos of
chicken feeders part of the plan.
Jones already has leads.
"We've got several residents
who've been accused of feeding
chickens," he said. "Some are lit-
tle old ladies" who live on Dey
and Packer streets.
Jones and city officials would-
n't give up the names of suspects,
but an interview with cyber-
chicken store owner Katha
Sheehan (www.thechickenstore
.com) proves the initiative is
likely to encounter resistance.
Sheehan keeps many chickens
on her property, some caged and
some not, she said
Sheehan refutes the city's
ordinance, claiming if a code
officer approaches her with a
ticket, she'll take her "chickens to
south Dade. This city doesn't
deserve the chickens, even as
people sell multi-thousand-dollar
paintings of them."
State-certified nuisance trap-
per Chris Guinto has started


working closely with the city,
rounding up chickens on an on-
call basis. Guinto gets about 100
calls a year for chickens. He
charges a one-time fee of $100 to
$150 for trapping most animals.
In 2004, the city hired a trap-
per to round up more than 1,200
chickens to take to a Miami farm,
Jones said, adding he was
accused of dumping the birds at
an alligator farm.
The chicken issue has long
been a hot topic on the island,
garnering attention from national
media.
During the bird-flu scare in
2005, the Homeland Security
Council held a presentation to
generate a "national strategy for
pandemic influenza," and a
report from the U.S. Department
of Agriculture said free-range, and
organic poultry "may present an
increased risk of exposure to
avian influenza...."
The Key West City
Commission passed a resolution
in 2006 urging residents to take
note of the potential danger, and
directing staff to pursue efforts to
remove them from public places.
"There is certain amount of
health concerns, with their fecal
matter from the chickens," com-
missioner and Monroe County
Health Department employee
Clayton Lopez said
Though city officials discour-
age it, feeding stray cats is per-
fectly legal.

Council OKs housing


Part of WetNet
cost to be paid
by 4 litigants
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.com

A housing complex intended
for moderate-income families,
which has been delayed for
years by legal troubles, is one
step closer to becoming reality
-in Islamorada.
Thursday, the Village
Council unanimously approved
a site plan for 36 affordable-
housing units at what's known
as the WetNet property, a 4.4-
acre parcel at mile marker 81.
As part of a settlement, the
plan reduces the number of
units at the complex from the
maximum of 52 allowed by
zoning to 36 three-bedroom,
2.5-bath townhouse-style
homes.
Council members said they
were pleased with artist render-
ings of the complex, which
show significant amounts of
green space and homes situated
around a central park with var-
ied setbacks from the road.
The site design is by Coral
Gables architect Steve Siskind,
who was hired by Michael
Swerdlow, one of four WetNet
neighbors who sued the village
in 2006 to block the develop-"
ment.
According to Mayor Dave
Boemer, Swerdlow has agreed
to oversee the development, and
the four litigants will pay for all
architectural, development,
marketing and agent fees asso-
ciated with the project.
The homes will be sold
under affordable-housing
guidelines for an estimated
$250,000 each.
Also Thursday, the council:


Unanimously approved an
$828,136 contract for Native
Construction to build a commu-
nity room at Founders Park,
which will include a kitchen,
bathrooms and a large room that
can be divided into two smaller
rooms.
Total cost of the project,
about $1.2 million, is estimated
at almost $300,000 under what
was budgeted.
That savings will be used to
pay for more than $100,000 in
anticipated cost overruns for the
marina bath pavilion, which
will include bathrooms, show-
ers, a storage room and laundry
room, and is expected to cost
the village $886,268.
Native Construction was also
awarded a $680,961 contract to
build the pavilion, even though
its bid was about $67,000 high-
er than that of the lowest bid-
ding contractor, which failed'to
provide a list of subcontractors
requested as part of the applica-
tion.
Councilman Don Achenberg
said he would be uncomfortable
awarding the bid to a contractor
that did not follow bid instruc-
tions.
Boemer said he was troubled
by the cost of the project, which
he said is "basically a million-
dollar outhouse."
Former mayor and Seat 5
council candidate Ron Levy is
working as project manager for
both the community room and
pavilion'

tially generated by the tax over
15 years.
He also said that based on
conversations he's had with

state will not be lenient in
enforcing penalties associated
with the 2010 sewer compliance
deadline unless local municipal-
ities "make a commitment to
move forward in an uninterrupt-
ed manner, with or without
funding" from the state.
Council members said the
plan has more appeal than the
recent suggestion by
Islamorada's water-quality
committee that the village
secure a $115 million bond to
fund village sewers on its own.
Neugent is working with'
state representatives to work out
the details of the potential tax.
He said Keys residents would.
have a chanceto vote on the tax
before it could be enacted.

d Dog park possible


Petitioners
eyeing city's-
events field
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council,
meeting in regular session
Tuesday at the Marathon
Government Center, took the
following actions:
Held a discussion, spon-
sored by Vice Mayor.Chris Bull,
about turning the events field
behind the City Hall trailers
between 98th and 99th streets.
into a dog park.
Bull said 449 residents
signed a petition in favor of the
idea and that cost estimates
ranged from $10,000 to $85,000,
depending on how elaborate the
plans are.
Set aside a permit alloca-
tion for the "Habitech" house to
be built on site by students in
Marathon High School's con-
struction lab. The school is part-
nering with Habitat for
Humanity of the Middle Keys to
construct the 1,100-square-foot


manufactured home.
The home will be built
according to Florida hurricane
code in four sections, which
upon completion will be rolled
out the door, picked up by a
crane, placed on a flatbed truck
and taken to a yet-to-be-deter-
mined site.
Approved three of four
requests to change the city's
future land-use map. The one
property denied its request is at
101st Street oceanside. The
owner was attempting to have its
zoning changed from residential
low to mixed use commercial,
residential medium and conser-
vation.
Approved a resolution to
approve an amendment to a
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission con-
tract concerning work on the
33rd Street boat ramp.
It states plans to work on the
restroom there meant operations
at an adjacent youth recreation
center would be disrupted. The
plans were changed so the exist-
ing restrooms will -be refur-
bished. The project is slated to

+ Approved a resolution
authorizing an interlocal agree-
ment with the city of Key West
to participate in the 2005 disas-
ter-recovery Community
Development Block Grant pro-
gram.
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 recov-
ery in the most impacted and
distressed areas relating to the
consequences of hurricanes
Katrina, Rita and Wilma" in
2005.
Approved a resolution to
broaden the scope of work for

the city finds a permanent infor-
mation technology director. The
company designed the city's
computer network system and
has continued to provide remote
support and consulting services

Group battles
to keep victory
gained last year
Fair Insurance Rates in
Monroe will host town-hall
meetings from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on
the following days and at the fol-
lowing locations:
Monday, Marathon High
School.
Wednesday, Key West High
School.
+ Thursday, Coral Shores

FIRM board member Heather
Carruthers said the group is ask-
ing all commercial property
owners in Monroe County to
submit a copy of their windstorm
policy's declaration page to the
organization for use in an actuar-
ial analysis.
Carruthers said FIRM mem-
bers would use the data to fight
rate increases on commercial
property insurance, just as they
did for the county's single-family
residential and condo owners.
Identifying information on the
forms will be blacked out and
kept confidential.
Mail the documents to FIRM,
care of Gary Sechen, Key West
Bank, 701 Whitehead St., Key
West, FL 33040.
Windstorm premiums sky-
rocketed following the series of
devastating hurricanes that
impacted the state in 2004-05,
leaving many homeowners with
jaw-dropping bills doubling or
even tripling what they had been
the year before.
In response to those hikes,
area residents formed the grass-
roots FIRM to represent them-
selves and their neighbors in
fighting the increases at the state
level and they won, but the
effect was only temporary.
After reviewing documenta-
tion compiled by FIRM,
Insurance Commissioner Kevin
McCarty agreed that the pro-
posed rates were excessive and
drastically reduced and tem-
porarily froze them, with. the
freeze set to expire this year on
Dec. 31.

Lease to go before City Commission


Pantelis hopes
transfer OK
comes Tuesday
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The Key .West City
Commission may have the
opportunity to pass Waterfront
Market owner Buco Pantelis'
lease sale to United Natural
Foods Inc. of Connecticut
Tuesday night, depending on
the Key West Bight Board's
decision Tuesday morning.
The Bight Board called a
special meeting to address the
lease at 9 a.m. in Old City
Hall. The City Commission
will discuss it when it meets at


the same location at 6 p.m.
United Natural Foods owns
12 grocery stores, Pantelis
said, adding that the only
thing that may change regard-
ing the market would be more
organic and prepared foods.
"It's a great deal for every-
body," Pantelis said. "This is
really a reputable company."
Fears the market might
change after a sale, which
arose last fall when Pantelis
announced plans to close the
business, are unfounded,
Pantelis said.
United Foods plans on only
"enhancing" the business, he
said. Those enhancements
should "give people in town a
healthier choice."

Mayor Morgan McPherson
was the sole City Commission
vote against granting Pantelis
an extension on his lease in
early December. McPherson
claimed Pantelis was. taking
advantage of the city. Pantelis
had fought the city about a
rent .increase it implemented
in the summer.
"I think this goes to support
the fact that all in all, it was a
fair lease," McPherson said.
"For [Pantelis] to sell it to a
national chain shows that
these guys know business,
how to make money."
Pantelis says a group of cit-

with the lease and that the

"Keep the market open-"
Key Westers "wanted a
green, health food store and
that's- a good one,"
Commissioner Bill Verge said.
In a letter to the Bight
Board, Angela Langston of

the main goal of the company
"is always to provide the

Tri-party talks
seem to reach
final agreement
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The contentious saga over
who controls access to the
Truman Annex in Key West
could end Tuesday, depending on
how the Key West City
Commission addresses a pro-
posed settlement agreement to
put to rest two lawsuits filed
against the city.
The deal would limit Southard
Street access to the Truman
Waterfront from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
for all visitors and allow the
Truman Annex Master Property
Owners Association, or TAM-
POA, to construct a gate to close
off the rest of the city throughout
the night with the exception of


Truman Annex residents, their
guests and employees of the asso-
ciation.
The city would also be respon-
sible for maintaining the structur-
-al quality of the street and allow
access to the waterfront through
other roads that could cause more
traffic through Bahama Village.
Those terms would end a heat-
ed two-year legal battle, but have
developed opposition from some
commissioners.
"I'm still not in favor of mak-
ing any kind of agreement with
any private entity for something
that applies to the entire city,"
Commissioner Clayton Lopez
said. "I'm tired of this thing
going on for as long as it has, but
just because I'm over it doesn't
mean I'm going to give in."
But some commissioners sup-
port the agreement, anxious to
stop paying legal fees and start

moving past the quarreling.
"We worked hard at negotiat-
ing," Mayor Morgan McPherson
said. "I think that this- works for
the best interest of everybody."
The agreement is the result of
hours of negotiating among rep-
resentatives from Naval Air
Station Key West, the city and the
association Nov. 27, TAMPOA
President Tom Tukey said.
"Nobody walked out entirely
happy," Tukey said. "It's a fair,
equitable compromise for all par-
ties."
A previous attempt to settle
imposed stricter regulations and
annual fee of more than $30,000
the city would've been required
to pay for access.
TAMPOA's lawsuits stem
from the group's belief the city
didn't honor a 2000 City
Commission agreement to allevi-
ate the flood of traffic through
Southard Street by allowing
access into the annex through
other streets in Bahama Village.
Subsequently, the association
sued in Circuit Court Jan. 17,
2006, with attorney Bill
Anderson and Tukey claiming
the community's residents own
the street and that the neighbor-
hood is private property. After
that complaint, a federal lawsuit
was filed against the city and U.S.
Navy.
A federal court decision in
October dropped six of the 14
counts against the city because
the same" counts are pending
against in Circuit Court.
If the agreement on for
Tuesday passes, both suits will be
dropped.
Jim Brooks, spokesman for
Naval Air Station Key West,
wouldn't comment on the agree-
ment, given the homeowner asso-
ciation's pending litigation
against the Navy over a Southard
Street easement, but did note the
base should have a voice.
"We've been part of the medi-
ation with the city and TAM-
POA," Brooks said.
In September 2006, Key
Westers organized a march down
Southard Street to protest after
TAMPOA imposed a checkpoint
gate for vehicles at Southard and
Thomas streets.
The move even led to a skir-
mih between Lopez and a TAM-
POA gatekeeper who stopped
him. Lopez, a black man, alleged
racial profiling because the secu-
rity guard didn't stop two white
men in a car ahead of him.

Parking

viloators

get boot

By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Key West parking violators
are getting the boot, literally.
According to Parking Finance
Supervisor Toni-Michelle Gage,
officers who catch drivers in Key
West with four or more parking
tickets will fasten a boot, or
wheel clamp, to their tire to pre-
vent them from moving. Then
they'll get a fifth ticket.
"They started booting cars a
couple weeks ago," Gage said.
The officers apply about two or
three boots a week, she added.
If a parking officer sees a
timed-out meter or a car parked
illegally, and after running the
.driver's license tag through the
computer finds the offender up to
the limit, the boot comes out.
It's like getting towed -
without the panickedf feeling of
walking back to your parking
space to discover your car has
vanished.
And boots aren't as costly.
There's a $50 administrative fee
to have the boot removed, while
companies like Arnold's Towing
Service on 3rd Avenue charge
more than $155 for towing and
keeping their vehicle more than
six hours.
But the boot cost doesn't fac-
tor 'paying the outstanding $25
per-ticket fee, plus a $10 late fee
for tickets issued more than 30
days ago.
Illegal parkers are frequent in
a city like Key West, where driv-
ers exceed the number of on-
street spots, and a quarter in the
parking meter will buy you a
measly 10 minutes; $1.50 will
buy you an hour.
Assistant City Manager John
Jones says there are 3,800 park-
ing spaces in the Old Town area,
with 1,200 of those reserved for
autos with Monroe County tags.
For the 2007-08 fiscal year,
the city is estimated to garner
$1.2 million from total parking
revenue, but has budgeted for
$1.3 million. For the first quarter
of the year, October to
December, it collected $239,654.
Through ticket fines the
city's written 10,786 in the first
quarter the city estimates to
bring in $668,000.


New housing fund possible


City would
seek match
of $250,000
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


The city of Key West will dip
into its affordable-housing trust
fund for a second time if com-
munity-housing advocates get
their way.
With Gov. Charlie Crist's
proposed budget leaving $72.6
million in housing-assistance
funding on the chopping block,
Mayor Morgan McPherson and
the Alliance of Community
Housing have proposed a
"homemade" fund to help
potential homeowners with
down payments on homes.
"It will basically be a home-
made version of the [State
Housing Initiatives Partnership]
funding pool," McPherson said.
"We might vary a little bit from
the SHIP program."
That statewide pool provides


financial assistance to hopeful
homebuyers. The local pool
would work in conjunction with
the Key West Housing
Authority, an entity that offers
assistance only after income
and credit checks.
The closing costs would be
paid back over time, advocates
say.
"We're going to reach out to
people that really need it," City
Housing Coordinator Paul
Clayton.
About 50 people to be exact,
and McPherson plans to draft a
resolution to pull out the neces-
sary $250,000 from the trust
fund. After that, the city would
seek a donor to match the grant
to make it an even $500,000.
The city recently dipped into
the fund for the first time Feb.
20, when it granted AIDS Help
Inc. $40,000 to see its 50-unit
supported-living facility erected
at the Poinciana housing site.
The trust fund has $300,000
"just sitting there," according to

That money came from a set-
tlement agreement between the
city and the Galleon Resort for
renting out unlicensed units.
The Housing Authority con-
trols a similar, already estab'-
lished $80,000 fund to help
renters with hefty security
deposits, first and last months'
rents.
With the state Legislature
meeting Tuesday, city officials
are sweating, hoping the pro-
posed cuts are re-evaluated. But
state Rep. Ron Saunders pre-
dicts more cuts, and says Crist
is painting a rosy picture and
not addressing the reality of
how tight the budget year will
be.
On top of Crist's suggested
18.6 percent cut in housing
funds for this fiscal year, at least
$180 million more could be
transferred from housing trust
funds to general revenue
expenses, which can be used for
many different purposes.

Australian pines get their own bill


Saunders files
to protect trees
at Fort Taylor
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

If the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection won't
listen to a group of.locals that
wants to keep the trees at Fort
Zachary Taylor State Park,
maybe the Legislature will get
their attention.
A bill sponsored by state Rep.
Ron Saunders would require the
protection, maintenance and
preservation of the Australian
pines at the park at the end of
Southard Street.


"This bill would only affect
this park," he said. "It's an isolat-
ed situation."
Local governments the city
of Key West and Monroe County
- have passed resolutions sup-
porting locals who have fought to
keep the trees, saying their shade
and ambiance create an oasis on
the busy island. But DEP has a
strict policy against invasive
exotic species, and says they
should be cut down'.
"The only way we could do
anything is through legislative
action," Saunders said.
The Save Our Pines group has
been working for several years to
get the park treated as an excep-
tion so the pines could be main-


trained. Initially, park officials
agreed to allow the trees to
remain and allow attrition to
eventually eradicate them.
But a management plan
released late last year outlined a
more aggressive approach to
removing the trees, and many res-
idents were incensed.
Saunders is also introducing a
bill he says would take the tax-
reform constitutional amendment
voters passed in January a step
further.
Saunders said his proposal
would "solve the problem with
portability." The tax-reform
amendment set up a system that
allows taxpayers to take their
homestead-exemption tax sav-
ings with them when they sell one
house and buy another in the


state. The proposed bill would do
away with the inherent inequity
between new-home buyers and
those who have owned for a
while.
In addition, the January
amendment put a 10 percent cap
on the annual assessment allowed
on non-homesteaded properties.
"I think that's too high,"
Saunders said. "This changes the
cap to 5 percent. I think this bill is
better protection."
He's also sponsoring a bill to
"scrap the cap" on the Sadowski
Trust Fund by removing limita-


tions on the state housing trust
fund.
Current law sets a $107 mil-
lion cap on the amount of money
deposited in the fund, allowing
the state to put any money col-
lected over that to be deposited
into the state's general fund.
"It will be difficult to pass
because of budget problems," he
said, "but I'm going to bring this
up every year until it's done. That
fund was set up specifically for
affordable housing. It's a breach
of trust to take that money for
other uses."

RESCUED: The U.S. Coast Guard
responds Wednesday to a
disabled vessel that was taking
on water 53 miles south of Key
West. The 8 a.m. call about the
22-footer with two men aboard
came from one of the men's
family, with whom he was
communicating via satellite
phone because they were
unable to contact the Guard.
The men were picked up by a
crew aboard the cutter 'Tornado'

Keys Sunday Staff

Applications for the new

The portability provision

KCB tosses itself a party

Annual fest takes over center of town March 9


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Key Colony Beach cele-
brates itself March 9 when the
city's Community Association
hosts the annual Key Colony
Beach Day.
The fun begins early in the
morning with a Shriner's Club
pancake breakfast starting at 7
a.m. and continues throughout
the day with music, food,
drinks, raffles, auctions and
more.
Parking and admission are
free, which event organizer Gail
Cortelyou said works best in a
small city like theirs.
"The reason we did that is we
used to try and be like the
[Original Marathon] Seafood
Festival, but ... it doesn't work
in this town. We encourage peo-
ple to come and go, bring a lawn
chair and listen to the music,"
Cortelyou said.
Each year during Key
Colony Beach Day, .a parade


runs from one end of the city to
the other via West and East
Ocean drives. Marathon Fire
Rescue Assistant Fire Marshal
Adam Geaneas is in charge of
organizing the parade this year.
Geaneas said Key Colony
Beach Police Chief Robert
Petrick will lead the parade,
which will include vehicles and
boats from a number of law
enforcement agencies, including
the Florida Highway Patrol,
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office, Key Colony Beach
Police Department, Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission and U.S. Customs
and Border Protection.
Marathon Fire Rescue will
also have two rescue vehicles
and two engines in the parade,
along with the antique ladder
used to tour the city on
Christmas Eve.

The parade at Key Colony Beach Day (top) draws all kinds. It's

Not feeling sleepy?


Keys expert
offers info
about problem
Sleep a basic necessity of
life, as important to health and
well-being as air, food and
water. The way people sleep at
night has a great impact on their
general health, as well as their
daily mood, behavior and per-,
formance.
With National Sleep
Awareness Week this coming
week, Geoff Hux, sleep technol-
ogist at Mariners Hospital in
Tavernier, wants to draw atten-
tion to the fact that lack of sleep
can create problems.
"The issue can be as simple
as negative moods," he said.
"But, it can be something more
serious. Studies have -found a
correlation between the quantity
and quality of sleep and some
health problems."
The National Commission on
Sleep Disorders Research esti-
mates that 40 million Americans
suffer from chronic sleep disor-
ders and another 20 million to 30
million experience sleep prob-
lems intermittently.
And according to the
National Sleep Foundation,
more than one-third of American
adults get less than the recom-
mended seven to nine hours of
sleep each night, nearly three-
quarters experience a sleep prob-
lem a few nights a week or more,
and more than one-third are so
sleepy during the day it inter-
feres with routine activities.
Hux gave several examples
of how lack of sleep can influ-
ence a person's health.
Insufficient sleep can. affect
growth hormone secretion


linked to obesity. As the amount
of hormone secretion decreases,
the chance for weight gain
increases. The cardiovascular
system is also affected by lack of
sleep. Blood pressure usually
falls during the sleep cycle.
However, interrupted sleep can
adversely affect this normal
decline, leading to high blood
pressure and cardiovascular
problems.
In addition, research indicates
that insufficient sleep impairs
the body's ability to process
sugar properly, which can lead to
or worsen diabetes.
Hux, who conducts sleep
studies at Mariners, said a good
number of patients come for
testing because of snoring
issues.


Although snoring may be
harmless for most people, it can
be a symptom of a life-threaten-
ing sleep disorder called sleep
apnea, especially if it is accom-
panied by severe daytime sleepi-
ness. Sleep apnea is character-
ized by pauses in breathing that
prevent air from flowing into or
out of a sleeping person's air-
ways. People with sleep apnea
don't get quality rest because the
breathing problems constantly
interrupt the deep cycles of
sleep.
The breathing pauses reduce
blood oxygen levels, can strain
the heart and cardiovascular sys-
tem, and increase the risk of car-
diovascular disease.
Hux will be available at the
Mariners Hospital Community
Health Fair March 8 from 9 a.m.
to 1 p.m. to answer questions.


Health fair has


free screenings


The annual Mariners Hospital
Community Health Fair is
planned for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
March 8 at the Mariners campus,
mile marker 91.5 bayside.
Featured activities include
free screenings for adults,
including blood pressure, vision,
cholesterol, diabetes and osteo-
porosis. Appointments are not
necessary for any screening.
Fasting is not required for the
cholesterol test.
The fair will have more than
30 booths staffed by local health
organizations such as the Deaf
Services Bureau, Florida Keys
Area Health Education Center,
Florida Keys Healthy Start and


the Good Health Clinic. In addi-
tion, hospital, staff will answer
medical questions on a variety of
health topics, including sleep
disorders, heart health and mId-
ications.
The Community Blood
Centers of South Florida will
hold a blood drive in its blood-
mobile. The Monroe County
Health Department will offer
free hepatitis B immunizations.
Free goody bags will be

Variety of vendors are coming


KCB / From 25

Key Colony Beach city com-
missioners will also ride in the
parade, planned to begin on
15th Street and run past City
Hall down East Oceanr Drive to
1st Street, along with Henry the
Pigeon Key Trolley. It is sched-
uled to begin at 11 a.m.
Live music will be available
all day from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
and more than 60 vendors will
peddle their wares at City Hall.
Resident Barbara Totten said
everything from homemade
soap to used books to clothing
and jewelry will be for sale, as
well as food and drinks. She has
been organizing the vendors for
five years and said many are
longtime participants.
"Some of them have been
coming for year and years," she
said.
Cortelyou said the vendors
will be asked to donate items
for a silent auction.
"Some different things will
be things from vendors coming
to town to show their wares, so
it might be something a little
different" than usual, she said.


The popular barracuda races (actually, pilchards) are a Key
Colony Beach Day tradition. They're among the biggest
crowd pleasers of the event, with kids and adults alike
participating.

SA landmark for Art Behind Bars


rt Behind Bars, an
inmate-driven program
that helps rehabilitate
offenders while they give back
to the community, celebrates its
1,000th class with an Upper
Duval Cell Block Gallery Walk
from 6 to 8 p.m. March 7 fol-
lowed by a party at the Square
One restaurant from 8 to 10.
The walk is a progressive
cocktail party that will showcase
highlights of Art Behind Bars'
extensive collection of inmate
art, and takes place at the Lucky-
Street Gallery (1130 Duval), Joy
Gallery (1124 Duval),
McKibben Studios (1111 Duval)
and the Monkey Apple Art
Factory (1022 Duval).
The party at Square One will
include a silent auction with
goods donated from the commu-
nity, food, drinks, door prizes,
entertainment by Bongo D and
more. Food will be provided by
Square One, Eaton Street
Seafood, La-Te-Da, Exotic

Cafe. Admission is $50 per per-
son and can be reserved by call-
ing 304-4772 or going to
www.artbehindbars.org.
Founded and headed Lynne


Vantriglia, Art Behind Bars' mis-
sion is to give inmates an oppor-
tunity to contribute to society
through the donation of artwork
to nonprofit organizations locally
and nationally.
In this manner, artwork val-
ued at $91,000 has been donated
to. 360 diverse groups since
1994. In addition, many inmates
use the skills they acquire in art
class to help transform their lives
upon release.
The program based at the
Monroe County Detention
Center on Stock Island has
served almost 7,000 students in
its 14 years. Though based in
Key West, it puts out a nation-
wide call for inmate art and has
received works from inmates in
30 states and Thailand.
Art Behind Bars supporters
also mentor former inmates mak-
ing the difficult transition back
into society after release through
their Art After Bars project.
Access to art-making while in
jail can vastly improve the likeli-
hood for successful re-entry, and
helps to break the cycle of
recidivism by improving inmate

"The most exciting aspects of

At the Lucky Street Gallery
last month, a Valentine's Day
show flitted by too rapidly.
Innovative and experimental


works by Susan Bailey, Cathy
Rose, Rick Worth and
Cynthia Wynn gave way after
just a few days to new steel
sculpture by the gallery's front-
runner, John Martini.
Bailey's imaginative spins
on the concept of books
spanned several media and
included photographs, found
objects, toys, printmaking and
more.
The exotic, romantic figures
by Rose recall tortured
Victorian emotions, with a little
bit of "Yellow Submarine"
thrown in.
Worth's paintings are Key
West icons by now and Wynn's
furniture from recycled factory
metal continues to evolve.

tails and enjoy the sun, sea
breeze, great music and creative
original Key West artwork.
The opportunity to watch

objects.
The live music kicks off at 10
a.m. with nationally renowned
songwriter and humorist Michael

The U.S. Army Field Band makes you want to stand up and

next weekend.


A big Keys salute

ymphonic dances from
"West Side Story" will be
among the musical treats
on tap for a free March 8 concert
by the U.S. Army Field Band.
The concert, which begins at
3 p.m. at the Marathon
Community Park amphitheater
field, is one of two free concerts
for the band next weekend.
On March 9, the band will
then fill the auditorium at Key
West High School for a 3 p.m.
concert that will include popular
selections from "A Night at the
"Opera" and "Ragtime."
The music selections for both
Keys concerts will vary, giving
music lovers double the chance
to hear this world-touring
orchestra perform.
For a complete musical sched-
ule for both shows, log on to
www.armyfieldband.com.
Click on "Schedule" and then
move your cursor to the Keys.
Both the Marathon and Key West
concert selections are listed.
Free tickets for the Field
Band's Key West performance
are available at MacArthur
Music at 906 Kennedy Drive in
Key West or at Key West High
School's main office, 2100
Flagler Ave.
To obtain free tickets by mail,
send a self-addressed stamped
envelope with your request
(limit six per request) to: Band
Director, Key West High School,
2100 Flagler Ave., Key West, FL
33040. Get your tickets early
because the ticketed seats will
go fast.
The Marathon concert, which
is outdoors, will not require tick-


ets. Concert goers are asked to
arrive early at the amphitheater
for best viewing. Bring a blanket
or beach chair; there are no
chairs provided.
Since its formation in 1946,
the Field Band has appeared in
all 50 states and in more than 30
countries on four continents.
Along with the Soldiers'
Chorus, which was founded in
1957, this 65-member concert
band presents a powerful and
diverse program of marches,
overtures, popular music, patri-
otic selections, and instrumental
and vocal solos. A music critic
for the Boston Globe called a
Field Band performance "a
cause to stand up and cheer."
The Field Band's members,
selected by highly competitive
audition, represent some of the
finest musical talent in America.
Past performance highlights
include World War II 50th
anniversary commemorations in
the United States and Europe,
presidential inaugural parades,
the rededication of the Statue of
Liberty, nationally televised
broadcasts on Memorial Day
and the Fourth of July, and the
2002 Winter Olympics in Salt
Lake City.
Joint concerts with many of
the nation's leading orchestras
have included the Boston Pops,
Detroit Symphony Orchestra and
Cincinnati Pops.
Both Keys concerts are spon-
sored by the Keynoter in coopera-
tion with the city of Marathon and
the Key West High School Band.

Jazz stylist
plays Williams
on March 9
Jazz vocalist Libby York cele-
Sbrates the release of her third
CD, "Here With You," with
a March 9 concert at the
Tennessee Williams Cabaret
Theatre on Stock Island.
Joining York will be Dave
Bums on piano, Lonnie .
Jacobson on bass, Greg Sergo on
drums and Ken Fradley on trum-
pet. Showtime is 8 p.m. and
tickets $27.50 general admission
and from $32.50 to $37.50 for
tables. For reservations, call
296-1520 or go to www.keys
tix.com.
York's love of the Great
American Songbook is evident
on "Here With You," with heart-
felt performances of time-hon-
ored standards. Accompanying
are cornetist Warren Vache, who
makes a seamless match with
guitarists Russell Malone and
Howard Alden, bassist Jon Burr
and percussionist Vanderlei
Pereira.
Among the classics on the
CD are "Walkin' My Baby Back
Home," "I'Love Being Here -


both, those under age 19 are

The String Orchestra's Web
site says its "members rehearse
in a collaborative effort that ,
allows each musician to have an
impact on the artistic process.
The flexibility and intimacy of a
string quartet are thus fused with
the power and scope of an
orchestra."
There is no conductor, just
the musicians themselves. And
for the Keys shows, they will be
joined by guest artists Karl
Kramer, horn; Greg Smith, horn;
and Thomas Gallant, oboe.
Selections will include works
from Mozart, Cherubini and
Mendelssohn.

1-run win jolts Canes

Both the record

A comeback win Thursday did
as much for the Lady Hurricanes'
confidence as for their softball
record.
"That was fantastic," senior
third baseman Ciara Sanchez said
after the Canes rallied in late
innings to trip Palmer Trinity, 4-
3, Thursday.
"That shows what a good team
we have," said Sanchez, who did
as much as anyone to nail down
the win. "And we're out of the
one-run-loss slump."
Last year the Canes went 4-10,
due in large part to a 1-5 record in
games decided by a single run.
After four games this spring,
Coral Shores stands at a formida-
ble 3-1.
"The girls kept coming back,"
said Paul Grewe, co-coach with
Mike Young. "This team, if they
keep it up, has a chance to be not
too bad."

rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
tennis team continued to gather
momentum Wednesday, as both
the boys and girls teams defeated
St. Brendan High School on their
home court.
After winless seasons last year
for both teams, each is now offi-
cially on a winning streak in
2008. The boys (2-5) have won
two matches in a row, while the
girls (6-2) have now- won their


past four contests.
The Dolphins' only loss in sin-
gles play was boys No. 1 John
Danaher. He lost 1-8, but coach
Mark Hooper said he was thrilled
to see the eighth-grader win even
one game against Sabres senior
Juan Gonzalez, who is the No. 1
player in Panama and interna-
tionally ranked.
Boys No. 2 Kerry Wonderlin
was down at one point 2-5 in his
match, but rallied to win in a
tiebreaker, 8-7 (7-4). Hooper said
he told the junior to get his first
serve in play and move his oppo-
nent around.

Mater defeats
the Conchs for
first time ever
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Enveloped in tradition and
boasting 11 state titles over its
long history, Key West High
School had, not surprisingly,
never lost a baseball game to
fledgling Mater Academy.
Until Wednesday afternoon
in Hialeah Gardens. .
Mater, a 5-year-old charter
high school, defeated Key
West, 2-1, as the Conchs left


10 men on base.
It was hard for coach
Miguel Menendez, whose
team dropped to 4-3 overall
and 2-2 in District 16-4A, to
imagine a more frustrating
game.
"This one is right at the
top," he said. "Not to take any-
thing away from Mater, but we
hit the ball well and had multi-
ple opportunities, but didn't
come through.
Key West had runners on
base in every inning, many of
them in scoring position, but

Canes beat Palmer, even record at 2-2


'By KEVIN WADLOW

Change can be good, Coral
Shores' baseball Hurricanes
showed Thursday.
A new infield alignment
helped starting pitcher Jorge
Suarez go the distance for a 5-1
win over visiting Palmer Trinity.


"We're really happy with this
defense," head coach Jeff Meyers
said.
The key move was putting
senior Ray Ferro a standout
shortstop for years behind the
plate. Ferro's defensive prowess
and experience were needed at
the critical catcher's spot, Meyers


said.
"We're tougher with a talented
senior behind the plate."
Outside of Stephen Fowler
staying at first, everything else on
the infield changed.
Chris Noble stepped to his
left, going from third to shortstop.

Conch coach Paul Findlay addresses the team. Key West dropped both its boys and girls
matches to Westminster Tuesday.


Tennis not a lark for Lark


Player tough
on himself but
rejoins team
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


Key West High School tennis
player Nick Lark has been a sullen
presence on the court, inclined to
abusing rackets and other behav-
ior that has tested the patience of
his coach and teammates.
A senior playing No. 1 boys
singles, Lark has been winless
this season, a situation that has
not improved his disposition.
Tuesday at Coral Shores, dur-
ing the Conchs' match with
Westminster Christian, he was
losing, 6-0, when he broke his
racket by slamming it against a
windscreen.
Having finally seen enough,
coach Paul Findlay pulled Lark
off the court. Lark then declined
to play a doubles match, Findlay
said.
"I couldn't ignore this .any
longer," Findlay said. "His nega-
tivity and sulking have become
infectious. He has the potential to
be a decent player, but..."
Wednesday, Lark was not at
the Conch courts, where a match
with Coral Shores had been post-
poned by bad weather. Findlay
said he wasn't sure if he had quit
the team.


Findlay said he called Lark
Wednesday night and that. Lark
said he didn't want to play any-
more. Later, though, Lark called
Findlay to apologize and say he
wanted to complete the season.
Thursday afternoon, Lark
rejoined his teammates at prac-
tice. "He practiced well, he did all
right," Findlay said. "I explained
to him that there would be zero-
tolerance from now on."
Findlay has a theory about
Lark: "He equates happiness with
winning tennis matches. You have
to get some joy out of just bat-
tling. It's not just the outcome."
Over the phone Thursday
night, Lark said, "I really don't
like to lose. I'd be happier if I was
playing better."
Asked why he changed .his
mind about quitting, Lark said,
"My teammates, I just can't take
off."
He said he understood
Findlay's position. "Hopefully, I
can change this around," he said.
"It's got to change. I had never
broken a racket in my life."

A double loss
The Conchs boys and girls
teams both lost, 4-3, to
Westminster Christian.
"It was a really good match,"
Findlay said. "The teams were
even, it could have gone either
way."


Nick Scammacca and George
Clark won their singles matches,
as did Gabby Scammacca and Rae
Lark for the girls. Scammacca and
Sara Fitzsimmons won in No. 1'
doubles.
The Conchs-Coral Shores
match has been rescheduled for 2
p.m. Friday. Key West will also
play host to St. Brendan at 3 p.m.
Wednesday after a Tuesday
match at Doral Academy.

hit offense with three hits and

Given scattered eight hits in

Concerns about traffic on

Lady Conchs finally play


Softball team
hoping to shake
rust from layoff
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

After two weeks without play-
ing a game, the Key West High
School softball team will face
Ronald Reagan in a District 16-
4A game at noon today at the
Conchs' Back Yard park.
Key West (2-0) hasn't played
since defeating Marathon, 13-7,
on Feb. 16. Its game Tuesday
against St. Brendan in Miami was
canceled because of the power
outage.
"We were already dressed and
about to start warming up when
the athletic director told us it was
a lock-down situation, and we
had to sit in the gym for an hour,"


coach David Gootee said. "Then
we were told that all games were
being cancelled."
The Conchs go into today's
game with two solid weeks of
practice behind them. "We have
been working on our defense,"
Gootee said.
While the defense was solid in
a season-opening victory over
Monsignor Pace, it deteriorated
into six errors against Marathon.
Gootee talked this week about
the changes he made in this sea-
son's lineup.
He moved senior Kristen
Babich from left field, where she
played last year, to center field
because of "her tremendous arm
strength and mobility."
The tall sophomore Lauren
Wells was moved from right field
to first base because of her "reach
and fielding ability" and Kayla


Reams was switched from third
base to shortstop. "Reams seems
to have settled at short, though
Chelsea Storr is pushing her,"
Gootee said.
The four newcomers to the
lineup are right fielder Gigi
Orofino, left fielder Sarah
Rodriguez, third baseman
Madison Disson and catcher
Natalie Dudley.
"Orofino has been a nice addi-
tion with her speed and catching
ability, not to mention her bat,"
Gootee said. "Rodriguez contin-
ues in her quest to be a permanent
starter, but she is being pushed by
Alicia Arazzola. Disson has
stepped up at third with a great
amount of determination, and
Dudley has performed rather well
behind the plate."
The coach added: "We believe
in ongoing competition, so there
is a daily battle for positions on
our team."

got over the head of the right
fielder.
Thomas was left on second
base when Charlie Walker-Yhap
struck out, but the Conchs took
the field confidently for the bot-
tom of the seventh, tied 1-1 and
knowing that junior pitcher
Drew Rivera had retired 14 con-
secutive batters.
"Once we scored, there was
no doubt in my mind we were
going to win," Menendez said.
But Mater loaded the bases
with no outs. Second baseman
Frankie Ratcliff was brought in
to relieve Rivera, but he allowed
a game-winning single by
Jeremy Boeheim.
MaterrB first run came in the
first inning when Rivera com-
mitted a balk with a runner on


third. Rivera gave up only three
hits and struck out five the
best performance by a Conch
pitcher this season, Menendez
said.
Key West's chances were
considerable.
In the first, Thomas struck
out with a runner on third and
two out; in the'second, Ratcliff
lined to left with the bases
loaded and two out; in the fifth,
with no outs, Ratcliff was dou-
bled off second after a popup to
short center field; and in the
sixth, with no outs, Walker-Yhap
was thrown out at the plate after
a fly ball to right by pinch-hitter
D.J. Elomina.
"They definitely made some
nice plays, but I also think it was
a case of everything we hit hard
being right at somebody,"
Menendez said.
The Conchs, who played late
Friday night at American
Heritage, will face Christopher
Columbus at 3:30 p.m. today in
Miami.

Westwood drops
Marathon 5-2,
team's now 0-8
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynotet.com

The Marathon High School
baseball team dropped another
close game Thursday to
Westwood Christian School,
5-2, keeping a competitive
Dolphins team winless so far


we didn't make any errors and
the kid who pitched for them
pitched a great game," coach
Luis Leal said. "He was
throwing in the mid- to upper
80s with three good pitches."
Senior J.P. McCabe had the
lone hit for the Dolphins, who
struck out a combined 12
times in the game.
The Dolphins played solid
defense, committing no errors,
while junior Toby Eigner
pitched a. solid game on the
mound. Eigner pitched seven
innings, struck out six batters
and walked none, while allow-
ing 12 hits and five runs.
The Warriors got on the
board in the first inning when
a runner scored from first on a
two-out double. The score
would remain 1-0 until the
bottom of a very strange
fourth inning.
Senior catcher Chris
Garrett walked to open the
inning and McCabe got on
with a base hit. With senior
Sean 0' Connor at the plate,
the Warriors began running a
series of "trick" shifting plays
to try to catch base runners off
guard and pick them off.

Published Keynoter 03/01/08


Leal said he felt the
Warriors' pitcher, who pro-
ceeded to throw three consec-
utive wild pitches that led to
two Dolphins runs, was
thrown off his rhythm by the
plays.
"The way he was pitching
we wouldn't have scored.
Their coach knows Sean as a
hitter and knows he's not
going to bunt," he said.
The Dolphins led 2-1 after
four innings.
The Warriors tied the game
in the fifth on a two-out base
hit up the middle and scored
three more on a two-out home
run in the sixth. The Warriors
scored all five of their runs
with two outs.
Marathon (0-8) will travel
to Westminster Christian
School Tuesday, where senior
George Hoffman is scheduled
to start for the Dolphins.

Coral Shores JV takes two from Marathon JV
Coral Shores JV takes two from Marathon JV


Canes outscore
junior Dolphins
in the twin bill
Coral Shores' junior-varsity
baseball Hurricanes swept
Marathon last weekend in a twin
bill.
The first game, Hurricane
Austin Bynum went to the
mound and he had great control,
pitching his way to a 14-2 sea-
son-opening win. Bynum also
helped his own cause by going
2-for-3. Also going 2-for-3 for
the Canes were Lennin
Tronosco, Jonathon Rodriquez
and Patrick Naughton.
Drew Nobriegas slammed a
home run to cap off the scoring
for the Canes.
In game two, Coral Shores
sent Nobreigas to the mound and
he was masterful in his 2008
debut, striking out nine JV
Dolphins and allowing no walks
in a 17-2 thumping of Marathon.
Tronosco was 1-for-3 with


&it


three stolen bases, scoring twice,
while Ryan Biondoletti went 2-
for-3 and Kevin Jenkins each
went 2-for-2.
Billy Davis hit a grand slam,
which all but put the game away.


The canes travel to
Archbishop Carroll today for a
double header at 10 a.m. and
noon and then face the Key West
JV March 8 at Founders Park in
Islamorada at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.


Drew Nobriegas (left) struck out nine Dolphins in the second
game of the doubleheader. Austin Bynum (above) led the
Canes to a 14-2 win in the first game of the twin bill. He also
went 2-for-3.
