nally proposed.
After lengthy discussion, coun-
cil was still at odds over the prop-
er way to assess system develop-
ment charges. Councilman Don
Vasil suggested each aspect of the
assessment be broken down and
voted on individually.
First, council unanimously
voted to commit 15 percent of the
total project cost roughly
$85.7 million from capital
infrastructure funds.
Vice Mayor Chris Bull was
the obvious swing vote on the
next two motions.
The first was to assume no
additional grant funding for the
project will be received and the
next was to make up $11.5 mil-
lion worth of the project's cost
through future operation and
maintenance charges.
Operation and maintenance
charges comprise the monthly
bill residents will pay once the
system is online.
Each vote passed 3-2, with
Mayor Pete Worthington and
Councilwoman Marilyn Tempest
dissenting. Bull was visually con-
flicted in voting to assume no fur-
ther grant funding, but unless
council chose that method, staff
would be unable to determine
concrete assessments.
The final motion to use any
future grant money received
toward reducing future operation
and maintenance charge was
unanimously approved.
According to figures to be pre-
sented to council at its regular
meeting Tuesday, a single-family
home will be assessed $6,692. A
single-family condo in a 20-unit
complex, according to the adopt-
ed 86 percent ratio, will be
charged $5,749.
The estimated average month-

The dollar breakdown


The Marathon City
Council on Tuesday
approved the method by
which the city will assess
sewer-system development
charges. It very closely
resembles a plan proposed
by Councilman Mike
Cinque that was voted
down at a Jan. 9 meeting.
The provisions include:
A 15 percent contribu-
tion toward the roughly
$85.7 million total project
cost from the city's capital
infrastructure fund.
A total of $11.5 million
of the total cost has been set
aside to be recovered
through monthly operation
and maintenance charges.
What does this mean for
the residents?
The owner of a single-


charges for a single-family home
is $75, while a medium to large
restaurant might expect to pay
$526.
The main sticking point this
past Tuesday was the assumption
in Cinque's plan to recover $11.5
million through operation and
maintenance charges.
"I wanted to not have to worry
about any money going forward. I
put the $11.5 [million] in the [oper-
ation and maintenance] because
that's the easiest place to put it
back in. What I'm looking for is the
commitment to move forward on
the entire system," Cinque said.
Vasil said he feels Cinque's
plan is "the most realistic" and
presented "no imaginary num-
bers." He said it's a mistake to
assume grant funding.
. ,,Worthington repeatedly


family home will pay $6,692,
while a single-family condo
in a 20-unit complex will cost
$5,749.
A "typical office build-
ing" with 10 offices can
expect to pay $18,092.
A medium to large.
restaurant will pay roughly
$57,991, while a "medium-
sized hotel" might pay
$114,990. The figure is
dependent on the number
of equivalent dwelling units
the property represents.
In addition, single-fami-
ly homeowners can expect
to pay $75 per month in
operation and mainte-
nance charges, plus anoth-
er $527 yearly in non-ad val-
orem taxes if they don't pre-
pay the assessment.



referred to operation and mainte-
nance charges as the city's "uh
oh" account in case of cost over-
runs or system damage.
"We're stacking the [opera-
tions and maintenance] real
heavy, I'm not in agreement with
how we're going with this,"
Worthington said.
"I truly believe ... there is
going to be additional grant
money. I can go with the Cinque
plan with the caveat anything else
we have goes to reduce [opera-
tions and maintenance] as much
as possible," Bull said.
Meanwhile, County Commis-
sioner George Neugent presented
his plan to implement a 1-dent
countywide sales tax to help off-
set the cost of sewers Keyswide.
The plan did not receive much
support from council.

fund, which is used for other
expenses including sewer
installation. That fund is facing
a potential shortfall in coming
years and Hinnant says there's
'no identified funding source"
for necessary equipment
replacement in this budget year,
which ends September 30.
Legally, the county cannot
collect the fees anywhere there is
already a fire assessment. That
means residents in the Lower and
Middle Keys fire and ambulance
districts would not see' a fee
added to their bills if one is
assessed.
The municipalities have their
own fire departments (Key
Colony Beach pays Marathon for
protection), so they wouldn't be
affected, either.
The County Commission will
likely vote on the fee at its March
19 meeting in Marathon.
According to Camille Tharp,
the Government Services Group
representative who made the
presentation, a fire assessment
fee is not technically a tax but it
can be collected on the county's
regular annual tax bill. The
advantage, she says, is that peo-
ple can't get away without paying
their tax bill.
According to law, people can-
not make- partial payments on
their local tax bill. By including
the fee in that bill, Tharp said,
people would have to pay the
assessment when they pay their
,ax bill.
She said the proposed $311 is


based on the fact that 76 percent
of the demand for fire services in
unincorporated Monroe comes
from residences. Under the pro-
posal, commercial and institu-
tional users would pay the fee
based upon the square footage of
their business. Commercial prop-
erties would pay 49 cents per
square foot, warehouses and

Commission

vote on the
fee at its
March 19

meeting in
Marathon.

industrial users would pay 30
cents per square foot and institu-
tions such as the School District
would pay 72 cents a square foot.
In January, the Islamorada
Village Council voted down a
similar proposal. Village Fire
Chief William Wagner told the
council that with no reserves, his
emergency services budget was
extremely tight. Wagner had
asked for the approval to begin
exploring the same fee idea the
county has with Government
-Services Grqup,. but the. council
said no..

Four seek


two KCB seats


FITNESS CENTER


Candidates
in final days
of campaigns
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Key Colony Beach voters
elect two new commissioners
Tuesday, and at least one who
has never run for or served on
the commission before.
Incumbent Arline Carbin
chose not to seek re-election,
while current Mayor Clyde
Burnett pulled out of the run-
ning to seek the city manager
position in Marathon. Current
Manager Mike Puto resigned
his post Feb. 12 pending the
city finding a replacement.
Bumett's name will still be
on the ballots because they
were printed before he pulled
out; there will be signs at Key
Colony Beach City Hall, the
polling site, to remind voters he
is not running.
Of the remaining four candi-
dates seeking two-year terms,
only Tucker DeGraw has sat on
the City Commission before.
DeGraw served two terms
before losing in last year's elec-
tion.
"I feel like past experience is
very important at this point. My
experience budgeting with the
city is far more than anyone
running," DeGraw said.
"They've never dealt with a
municipal budget."
DeGraw said the city's abili-
ty to meet the rollback tax rate
five of the last six years is
impressive and he would like to
see that fiscal responsibility
carry on. Rollback is the tax
rate under which the same
amount of property taxes is col-
lected from one budget year to
the next.
"We have to continue with
our fiscal policies. We've been
frugal with our money and
we're a legend in the county
for" that, he said.
Geraldine Zahn, April Tracy
and Steven Flood are new to the
political arena in Key Colony
and all feel a fresh perspective
will be good for the city.
Zahn said she has held meet-'
ings at residents' homes as well


as attended different functions
during the campaign.
As a business owner of 45
years, Zahn said she feels she is
qualified to represent Key
Colony Beach. Zahn and her
husband ran a commercial
vending business in New Jersey
and she is currently chair-
woman of the city Recreation
Committee.
"I have a management back-
ground that would come in
handy," Zahn said. "I've had a
positive reaction from a lot of
people, but the truth will be told
when they get in the voting
booth."
Longtime resident April
Tracy said being a business
owner in the city has enabled
her to meet and discuss city
issues with residents.
"I talk to people everyday,
trying to get a feel for what peo-
ple's opinions are and different
changes people would like to
see," Tracy said.
Tracy said a long-term solu-
tion to fixing the Sadowski
Causeway is the biggest issue
facing the city right now.
"They've tried to determine
how they want to fix it. I'm a
big advocate of fixing it the
right way instead of doing it
every five years," she said.
Tracy will be holding a meet-
and-greet session with residents
at Cabana Breezes, her bust-
ness, Monday from 5:30 until 7
p.m.
Steven Flood said he has
been meeting with residents and
is anxious for the opportunity
"to work for the voters of Key
Colony Beach."
"A lot of us are looking for
change in the city-not drastic,
but the citizens need to be heard
and paid attention to. I plan to
... continue to keep taxes low
and not waste money on frivo-
lous projects," Flood said.
Flood said all the candidates
are friends and neighbors
"looking to volunteer our time
and do the best for Key
Colony."
In Key Colony, voting is at
large, meaning the two candi-
dates who get the most votes
'ate elected.' Voting i's from '7
a.m. to 7 p.m.

Keys Opinion


Can't fool us: Fire

fee obviously a tax

You've seen the setup a zillion times.
Three shells and one pea. The hustler bets you can't find
where the pea is hidden under one of the three shells.
Well, substitute tax proposal for the pea and guess where this
shell game is going?
Wednesday, Monroe County Fire Chief Wayne Hinnant
urged county commissioners to approve a fire fee to raise an
additional $6 million a year for unincorporated county fire
operations.
Supporters make a big noise that this "fee" is not a tax.
Hooey, said District 5 Commissioner Sylvia Murphy, who
has been championing the need for the county to face up to fire
and emergency service funding problems.
As a longtime Emergency Medical Services worker, Murphy
has years of experience with shortfalls in funding these critical
services.
Indeed, the Key Largo Fire Rescue and Emergency Medical
Services District was created to help replace aging equipment
and buildings when past county commissions were reluctant to
dip into general funds or capital to make it happen.
So ironically, the fire fee proposal going before County
Commission for approval March 19 won't impact Key Largo,
which already has a fire district. Ditto for the cities and the
Lower and Middle Keys fire and ambulance districts.
When Islamorada's fire chief brought a similar fire fee pro-
posal to the Village Council, it said no, recognizing that a fire
fee is just another tax under one of those moving shells.
The county's proposed fee is $311 and is sure to bring a howl
of protests at the March 19 meeting at the Marathon
Government Center.
This week, Key West Mayor Morgan McPherson refloated
his one-penny bed tax idea.
You may remember this from last year when the mayor began
pushing the bed tax as a revenue source to help jump-start
affordable housing without burdening city taxpayers.
That trial balloon got deflated after state Rep. Ron Saunders
asked the mayor to take the idea to the Keys lodging and
innkeepers and get industry buy-in first.
Lodging representatives pointed out they already fund a half-
cent impact fee from the existing bed tax, specifically designed
to address affordable housing. Another half-cent of the bed tax
goes into city and county general funds, where it winds up get-
ting lost.
With all local governing bodies under a legislative mandate
to reduce taxes, we can expect to see more such calls for fund-
ing alternatives.
But we've seen the shell game work before and warn all: Just
keep your eye on that pea.

Do the math: Key West chickens are leaving a lot behind


EDITOR:
The chicken war has started again and the
sides are lining up.
I have to play hardball on behalf of Key West,
not because of the nuisance angle but the health
one. Everyone needs to be aware of the problem,
particularly on behalf of our children.
Chickens are hanging out in abundance in
community parks and playgrounds. The droppings
get into the sand piles and on the grass in the
fields. We estimate we have at least 2,000 free-
range chickens in Key West. Conservatively, if
each chicken produces 8 ounces of droppings a
day, it equates to approximately 92 tons per year.
going into our storm drains and directly into the
surrounded waters.
In my opinion, the frequent contamination
warnings on Higgs Beach are partly due to the.
chicken droppings in the Wildlife Center in
McCoy Indigenous Park. We are correcting this
with a new aviary. As soon as it opens, all the
chicken and bird droppings will go into the sani-
tary sewer system and be treated. There should be
a decrease in beach advisories when this happens.
The Dog Park at Higgs Beach is designed to
retain stormwater runoff and the dog advocates
are doing a good job of picking up after the dogs
in the park and more are starting to pick up after
them in the streets. Can we say the same of the
chicken advocates?
We are in the flight path of migratory birds

Keys justice system comes
EDITOR:
I am the woman who was beaten and robbed
at gunpoint in Mallory Square two years ago.
I wish to thank the Key West Police Depart-
ment, particularly Detective Pablo Rodriquez, for
his diligence and compassion; Assistant State
Attorney Manuel E. Madruga for his direction
and representation; and the honorable Judge
Mark H. Jones for his final words. They have all
restored my faith in our judicial system.
I also wish to thank Cathy Langston,


Relay event a success
EDITOR:
On behalf of the Mariners Hospital Relay for
Life Team, I would like to thank the many mem-
bers of our community who helped make our
Benefit Bike Challenge and Party a tremendous
success. We raised $6,120 for the American
Cancer Society.
As with all fundraisers, there are many people
behind the scenes who make it work. I would like
to thank Mariners Hospital employees, their fami-
lies and friends and members of the Mariners
Hospital Auxiliary who gave tirelessly of their
time. As did Susan Cunningham of Boy Scout
Troop 588 [and numerous business and commu-
nity sponsors and supporters].
This was truly a community event, and I thank
everyone who donated their time or participated
in the day. for making this a success.

from South America, and there is still a danger of
bird flu being passed on to the free roaming
chickens. The chickens frequent the same habitat
as the birds for food and peck at the bird drop-
pings,, which could contain the virus.
I gave a statement saying it's OK to kill chick-
ens with a BB gun. This is a true statement, but a
dumb one. I grew up when a BB gun looked like
a BB gun. The standard was the Red Ryder. Now
a BB gun looks like a real modem gun. I would
regret it forever if some kid got shot by pointing
one of these real-looking BB guns at a police per-
son. This is a case where a true statement is the
wrong statement.
While we have been arguing about what to do
with the chickens, Susan Prince of the Key West
Wild Bird Rescue Center at Indigenous Park on
White Street has taken action by loaning out traps
for free. All they ask is a deposit, which is refund-
ed when you return the trap. Susan and her group
of volunteers recently trapped and have taken
more than 400 chickens to a farm in Eustis that
will offer the chickens for adoption as pets. There
are open orders for several more.
Call Susan at 292-1008 about borrowing a
trap. Or if you have caught any, drop them off to
her. The center needs and will accept donations,
and needs volunteers. Traps cost around $41 each.

through
victim/witness coordinator. Her kindness through
all of this has given me so-much.comfort.
Additionally, I would like to thank everyone who
took part in this process.
Although I feel justice was served, I feel a
great sadness, as everyone affected by this act of
violence has lost something.
I will continue to visit your island paradise from
time to time as I continue to heal emotionally.

Keys hospital is a blessing


EDITOR:
My wife and I were
recently on vacation in your
area. She developed a severe
case of food poisoning and
fainted. She broke her ankle
in the fall and as a result of
the food poisoning became
dangerously dehydrated. She
was taken by ambulance to
Fishermen's Hospital and
admitted to the Emergency
Room, and then the hospital
for several days.
Her care at the hospital
and in the ambulance was
outstanding. The doctors,
nurses and the ambulance
crew took a personal interest


in getting her well, and I felt
very fortunate to have them
working on her case.
I am a member of a hos-
pital board in my hometown
of Meridian, Miss., and I
know how hard it is to
obtain doctors and nurses
who genuinely care about
their patients rather than just
going through the motions of
doing a job.
Fishermen's Hospital is
an exceptionally good hospi-
tal and you are blessed to
have such a fine institution
in your area.
Marty Davidson
Meridian, Miss.


Marathon needs manager


without allegian
EDITOR:
In three weeks, the
Marathon City Council will
review applicants to replace
Mike Puto as city manager. A
motion passed 4-1 (Mayor
Pete Worthington voted no)
that the city will hold a four-
week search for Mr. Puto's
replacement.
As of Feb. 26, two local
gentlemen had applied for the
job. If either applicant is
selected, we would have been
better off rejecting Mr. Puto's
resignation.
Why the rush? If a multi-
million-dollar corporation's
board of directors proceeded
as our City Council is pro-
ceeding, a stockholders meet-
ing would be called to
replace the board. Voting
Marathon citizens should
remove council members that
act in such an irresponsible
way
Marathon's city manager
must be trained and have
worked as a city manager.
Marathon needs a person to
report to the City Council
without bias, pre-aligned
allegiance and without a
personal agenda. Marathon'
needs a professional manager.
What are the credentials of
the Key Colony Beach
mayor? Does the City
Council know? I urge our
council members to speak to
residents and employees of
Key Colony Beach before
jumping into bed with a far
larger problem than the one
we are replacing. We deserve
fresh ideas and direction
from one who understands,


the function of a city manag-
er.
Our city Manager must be
familiar with the workings of
our government in
Tallahassee. Neither of our
local candidates have the
understanding of how and
from whom we receive sup-
port for state funding. With
our tax base declining, it
becomes more imperative
that state funding be maxi-
mized.
Anyone who has lived
and/or served here will have
formed allegiance, biases
and prejudices that will affect
their direction and decision
making. The City Council
needs ideas and direction that -
are best for the entire city
and without influences of any
outside source. Allegiances,
biases and prejudices will
only alter any presentation
made to the council.
A statewide search needs
to be conducted to find quali-
fied people that have the
training, experience and
wherewithal to influence our
state senators and representa-
tives so we receive the maxi-
mum state funding possible.
A thorough search cannot be
conducted in four weeks.
Whatever you do, please
speak out. Doing nothing
won't cut it anymore. We all
must speak out now.
Warren Bernard
Marathon

Editor's note: As of press
time Friday, 15 people from
throughout South Florida had
applied for the job.


All village candidates strong,


but four merit most support


Voters in Islamorada are fortunate to have
nine uniquely qualified candidates running for
Village Council. Each is capable, but some are
more able to lead in challenging times.
Three candidates are incumbents on a coun-
cil that made both good decisions and stagger-
ingly bad ones. The incumbents Dave
Boemer, Don Achenberg and Michael
Reckwerdt were in charge when sewage
backed up into Plantation Key Colony homes
because of system flaws.
To be fair, Achenberg didn't take office until
months after the system was functioning. But
he shares some blame since backups were still
occurring.
This is also the council that chose to throw
more money at consultants than make a deci-
sion about whether to share waste-
water treatment with Key Largo.
This dithering cost taxpayers hun-
dreds of thousands of dollars. -
The council also embarrassingly --"-
fired Village Manager Gary Word
only to hire him back a month later, V S
and then voted to let him go a year .
after that.
On the positive side, the council
successfully passed a 2007-08 tax
rate 7 percent lower than the previ-
ous year. No services were cut and
no reserves were spent. Islamorada
enjoys one of the lowest tax rates in David
the state. Repor
The council is also beginning to
move forward with affordable hous-
ing. Construction on Woods Comer is almost
finished. And a deal is in the works on the for-
mer Wet-Net property after years of legal
wrangling.
There appears to be momentum with this
council.

Seat 1
Challenging Achenberg is motel owner Paul
Bates. He has suggestions on lowering taxes,
seeking more grants and saving money by
moving some services in-house. Bates' main
problem is going negative on Achenberg rather
than explaining why he would make a better
councilman. And Bates has a long history of
legal wrangling with the village.
Achenberg should be held accountable for
the 2010 wastewater-treatment mandate, but he
should also be given credit for ably filling in
(for Patti Schmidt, who resigned mid-term).
Achenberg should be given a chance to con-
tinue the council's good budget work. The
Reporter recommends Don Achenberg for
Seat 1.

Seat 2
This is a contest between local writer Jill
Zima Borski and longtime Keys resident Rod
Halenza. They differ on several issues, includ-
ing whether to start building wastewater treat-
ment systems or wait for the state to kick in
f t .,'


more money. Halenza wants to wait. Zima
Borski says the village needs to follow through
with its wastewater management master plan.
Both candidates believe in more fiscal man-
agement, Zima Borski calling for more
accountability and Halenza calling for more
interdepartmental cooperation and alternative
funding sources.
Both candidates deserve your vote, but Zima
Borski would bring a balance of environmen-
talism that the council lacks. The Reporter rec-
ommends Jill Zima Borski for Seat 2.

Seat 3
Boemer, the current mayor, faces two tough
opponents, longtime charter captain David
Purdo and retired Wall Streeter Jim Rhyne.
Purdo spent 40 years as a profes-
sional fisherman in Islamorada and
knows the pulse of the community.
He supports maintaining public
access to waterfront. But we feel
Purdo has too much of a wait-and-
see attitude regarding complying
with the 2010 wastewater mandate.
: .. Rhyne is too much in favor of
having village residents pay now
for a sewer system that doesn't yet
exist. Rhyne does have good ideas
about more fiscal responsibility.
Boemer has the best approach to
oodhue this problem move forward cau-
r Editor tiously, seeking funding, but not
obstinately refusing to think about
the issue until the state bail out.
Boemer is also one of the more balanced
members of the current board. He and
Councilwoman Cathi Hill unsuccessfully
fought against changes to affordable-housing
deed restrictions that make it easier to game
the affordable-housing system for profit. The
Reporter recommends Dave Boemer for
Seat 3.

Seat 5
Reckwerdt is facing former councilman and
mayor Ron Levy. Levy served on the village's
first council. He is a cofounder of the
Montessori Island School and vice president of
Island Community Entertainment, the nonprof-
it managing the Founders Park amphitheater.
Levy, like Rhyne, is too anxious. to spend tax-
payer money on a nonexistent sewer system.
Levy has a proven track record as an
Islamorada councilman, but so does Reckwerdt,
who knows what it's like to run a small busi-
ness during tough economic times. Being a
marina owner, Reckwerdt recognizes the need
to protect our environment without making it
prohibitively expensive to do business.
Reckwerdt also showed a willingness to dis-
agree with colleagues when he voted against
building city hall at Founders Park. The
Reporter recommends Michael Reckwerdt for
Seat 5.

Islamorada Village Council: Vote Tuesday


Seat 1


Don Achenberg

~~ + Biography: "I am a 16-year resident of Islamorada.
I have served two terms as president of Port Antigua. I
am a founder and a past president of Matecumbe
Anglers. My village service includes being chairman of
the Local Planning Agency and the Charter Review
Committee. I am an incumbent councilman."
Stance on development: "I do not favor large-
scale development in Islamorada because it damages
'.* the essence of community character. We must be mind-
ACHENBERG ful, though, that we are a tourist-based economy. To be
competitive in the world tourist market, we must give
our local businesses the latitude to prosper."
+ Stance on 2010 sewer deadline: "We must work quickly to bring
online and make reliable our existing wastewater infrastructure. Rep.
Ron Saunders has told us that we must provide to the Legislature a coun-
tywide sequencing of wastewater projects and identify potential sources
of funding. We must comply with our portion of this request to be eligible
for future state money."
+ Stance on fiscal management: "We have clearly heard that spend-
ing must be curtailed. A partnership between taxpayers and govern-
ment budget builders must now be formed in order to make spending
cuts as palatable to all as possible. We need (residents) to help us prior-
itize services you want for your tax money. Join us to meet the chal-
lenge."
+ Why vote for me: "I have earned (residents' votes) by serving well in
my past capacities as chairman of the Local Planning Agency, the
Charter Review Committee and currently as a level-headed, well-pre-
pared councilman with no agenda other than the well being of our vil-
lage."



Paul Bates

A'LL* Biography: "I own Coconut Cove Resort, hold a
bachelor's of science degree, I am a part-time airline
pilot, an ordained minister. I do many weddings, chari-
table events, church retreats and school dances at my
resort. I have a loving wife and four incredible children.
I started the first village charter reform movement."
Stance on development: "I wear two hats. I am an
environmentalist and a local, proud, small-business
owner. I believe No. 1, we protect what is left of our
BATES community and make our home the best Keys lifestyle
available while stopping the loss of our unique small
businesses and deterioration of our environmental treasures."
Stance on 2010 sewer deadline: "I met in Tallahassee with the gov-
ernor's chief of staff and the head of the Department of Community
Affairs. I promoted the option of small localized plants and mandatory
state and federal funding. The 2010 deadline is not firm and must not be
paid by our fragile economy. I am against unfunded mandates from
Tallahassee."
+ Stance on fiscal management: "I support a $1 million spending
limit without voter approval; smaller village government; lower taxes;
getting many grants like highway scenic grants; moving the village's
election to (November's general election), saving $35,000; removing
the Miami Law firm with recovery for unethical legal billing; yearly
polling rating village service; capital improvements and important
financial issues."
+ Why vote for me? "The choice is easy: A retired truck driver
appointed by the Village Council and in 38 months has not represent-
ed your wishes, or a local businessman, husband and father that has
been reforming the village for years, that has fought for you, has polled
and published your voice, and who is raising his kids in your schools."


Seat 2

Jill Zima Borski

+ Biography: "I am an open-minded, independent
thinker with no hidden agenda. I am chair of
Islamorada's Land Acquisition Advisory Committee,
former Charter Review Committee member and for-
mer village public information officer. I am committed
'to Islamorada, and have municipal and budgetary
experience."
+ Stance on development: "Slow, controlled growth
is a way to preserve our community assets and quali-
BORSKI ty of life. The 35-foot height limit should not be circum-
vented, nor should variances be given with a wink
and a nod, as with the current council. Ordinances and land-use laws
must be applied fairly and equally."
Stance on the 2010 sewer deadline: "Islamorada needs to follow
its wastewater management master plan. Next in line are the Lower
Matecumbe Key package plants and Indian Waterways hooking up
to the Plantation Key plant, after phases A-D of the original Plantation
Key plan are carried out. We need to continue to provide for water re-
use."
Stance on fiscal management: "Our budget is our yearly and
long-term financial plan. We have to set our short- and long-term
goals, and follow through, i.e., get things done. We cannot borrow for
structures that are not built, nor incur penalties and legal fees for mis-
management and laws that are circumvented. Accountability is lack-
ing."
+ Why vote for me: "I am an open-minded, approachable, inde-
pendent thinker who is uniquely qualified and committed to getting
the job done."



Rod Halenza

Biography: "First came to the Keys in 1956, the son
of a career Navy man. Graduated Key West High
SSchool in 1972 as a National Merit Scholar runner-up.
Returned to the Keys in 1987 with wife Kristi and three
'. ." sons. Owned Tavernier Lawnmower 13 years before
..,.selling in 2006. Plantation Key resident 11 years."
Stance on development: "Maintain balance
... . between residents' quality of life and commercial
demands of a tourist-based economy through even-
HALENZA handed application of planning regulations includ-
ing zoning, signage, lot coverage, architectural stan-
dards and landscaping. Negotiate options and alternatives to avoid
expensive property-rights litigation without surrendering Islamorada's
unique and irreplaceable community character."
+ Stance on 2010 sewer deadline: "Focus near-term on rectifying
issues with existing system and complete remaining phases to maxi-
mize plant capacity, spreading costs across wider customer base.
Proceed cautiously with next project in line, incorporating lessons
learned from our pilot project. Avoid worst-case scenario of inflicting
North Plantation Key-like system issues on residents villagewide."
+ Stance on fiscal management: "Allow manager and department
heads to develop budget strategies within established fiscal parame-
ters. Encourage consolidation of overlapping functions and foster
interdepartmental cooperation to provide services more efficiently.
Aggressively pursue grant and other alternative funding to. supple-
ment various budget categories."
Why vote for me. "I offer Islamorada voters a practical, common-
sense, businesslike approach to village government, and a thorough
understanding of the issues that is the result of a decade of involve-
ment, attendance at countless meetings, and listening to the diverse
concerns of hundreds of residents, not special-interest groups."

ture. Graduate Institute and Advanced Institute of Elected Municipal
Officials. Chamber and League of Mayors. Licensed captain, SCUBA
S. .^ instructor and pilot. Age 56, married, one daughter."
.. '. Stance on development: "I oppose the unbridled excessive develop-
ment pushed by the financial backers of my opponents, instead support-
,;." e ~ ing revitalization of our local businesses. I urged inclusion of the 35-feet
R- ,' height limit in our charter and have stood strong against every challenge."
BOERNER Stance on 2010 sewer deadline: "Since elected, I've worked to cor-
rect problems in our sewer system. We must continue to move forward with
our wastewater projects to protect our reefs through cooperation with Tallahassee. and
Washington, understanding we can only accomplish this in partnership, not in opposition."
Stance on fiscal management: "Instituted business practices stopping tax-and-spend
government through zero-based budgets, cost-recovery and conservative projections.
Twenty percent tax-rate reduction in two years for one of the lowest tax rates in the state
without cutting services or spending reserves. Business plans for enterprise funds."
Why vote for me: "I have worked diligently over the past two years on Council and my
previous service on LPA to protect our small town and island lifestyle against efforts of unbri-
dled developers who care only for their own profits; to protect our working waterfronts and
establish innovative regulations promoting affordable housing; to balance a high level of
local services, reining in of out-of-control spending."

David Purdo

Biography: "Thirty-plus years Islamorada resident and my entire fam-
ily lives in the Keys. Retired Detroit police officer, Air Force veteran, active
in village affairs, charitable projects, chamber of commerce, Islamorada
Fishing Club, Islamorada Charter Boat Association, director Middle Keys
IA, : Community Land Trust."
Stance on development: "I'm a firm believer in progressive develop-
ment and property rights of the individual. It's time we prepare and start
protecting our working waterfront, our environment and the heritage of
our future generations."
PURDO Stance on,the 2010 sewer deadline: "If the state wants us to comply
with their 2010 mandates, it must bear its fair share of the costs. We should
seek an extension of the 2010 deadline. Only when funding secured should we proceed."
Stance on fiscal management: "We must not spend what we do not have and stop
spending money and getting no results. The time for accountability is now. I am actively
reviewing expenses. Sound decisions make for positive leadership."
+ Why vote for me: "I have become a good listener, obtaining information from as many
sources as possible; I am a problem solver, cooperative, seeking to find common ground
and best results for all concerned. Because of these qualities I will be an effective and deci-
sive leader."

Jim Rhyne

Biography: "After a successful career on Wall Street, my wife Lesley and
I retired to raise our family here in Islamorada. In addition to raising four chil-
dren, I chair a foundation, sit on the Village Water Quality Committee, coach
three children's sports and run a successful resort business in Marathon."
Stance on development: "We must first recognize that there is a distinc-
:. tion between redevelopment and new development. Redevelopment, or
-. bringing current properties in line with current codes and regulations, is desir-
able. New development that adheres to adopted planning regulations, sen-
sitive to community character and economically viable, is also desirable."
RHYNE Stance on 2010 sewer deadline: "I would move forward with a fund-
ing mechanism that raises design-and-construction monies on a vil-
lagewide basis. Gambling that the 2010 deadline will be extended is a foolish bet. Outside
funding should still be aggressively pursued."
Stance on fiscal management: "Proper management of public money has been sore-
ly lacking. Fiscal waste can be directly attributed to bad decision-making by current coun-
cil. A clear vision, thoroughly vetted business plan and properly tasked management."
Why vote for me: "Proven skills to define and carry out a business plan, balance a
budget and work positively with staff to provide necessary services."

Stance on development: "Development
LEVY and redevelopment should be governed by
appropriate zoning, density and intensity guidelines that pre-
serve and enhance Islamorada's unique small-town island
lifestyle. Regulations should reflect a commitment to keep the
entire fabric of our community both residential and commer-
cial working together for a better community."
Stance on 2010 sewer deadline: "Implement a villagewide
master plan. Simultaneously work to acquire state and federal
fends, and create a village funding mechanism for wastewater
systems. The 2010 state mandate, accompanying fines and
potential withholding of municipal revenue and permits if the
standards are not met require that we move with speed."
Stance on fiscal management: "Stop waste; we are drain-
ing village coffers to pay off debt and have nothing to show for
it. Diversify revenue for tax fairness and to avoid reduced serv-
ices due to lower real estate values; we need to shift revenue
from real estate taxes to fees for services as much as possible."
Why vote for me: "I have proven leadership, with a record
of fiscal integrity providing increasing services while maintain-
ing the lowest municipal tax rates in our county."

Annie and I have five children. We own and
operate Robbie's Marina on Lower

councilman again because I want my family
and Islamorada to have a successful future."
Stance on development: "We need a fair
council distinguishing legitimate property
RECKWERDT rights from unreasonable perks for big devel-
opers. Fortunately or unfortunately, depend-
ing on your position, development has slowed significantly due
to a market-imposed moratorium."
Stance on 2010 sewer deadline: "The deadline needs to
be extended and Florida needs serious level of funding in order
for local governments to comply. We especially need to
address subdivisions and package plants without closing busi-
nesses or driving away our residents. Creating massive munici-
pal debt is a slippery slope and dangerous alternative."
Stance on fiscal management: "Often we must make dif-
ficult choices between what's wanted and what's needed.
That's the most important job of any council member and I
wish we had unlimited funds, but we don't. Nevertheless, nec-
essary infrastructure such a fire and safety, roads and a village
hall should take priority. Any additional borrowing, bonding or
otherwise, should be avoided."
+ Why vote for me: "You should re-elect me because I have
addressed the issues, considered both sides along with the
greater good, while making the hardest decisions in the fairest
manner possible."

Now it's PACE's turn


Program for
at-risk girls
is at risk itself
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Some call them at-risk kids,
but they call themselves the
future. Now that future is uncer-
tain, as the state office for the
PACE Center for Girls considers
closing its Key West center.
"This is our education, it's our
future," Key West PACE student
Krystal said.
"Going back [to high school]
is not an option," said Rachel,
who is a junior at the Key West
center. Girls interviewed for this
story did not disclose their full
names to protect their family's
privacy.
PACE stands for Practical
Academic Cultural Education.
The program is for at-risk girls
with better chances for success
outside the traditional school
environment.
The Florida Legislature needs
to pare $2 billion off its current
budget, which ends June 30, and
state-funded agencies are ready-
ing for the blow.
This week the House passed a
bill that would mean a 4 percent
cut in funds for PACE, cutting
close to half a million dollars off
this year's statewide budget.
The state PACE office has
warned the Keys that if the cut
gets final approval; it will close
the Key West center, where 32
girls receiving their high school
education.

fall, PACE board Chairwoman
Dixie Humelsine said. Instead,
PACE now serves 12 girls part-
time at Coral Shores High
School. A similar part-time pro-
gram serves 12 girls at Marathon
High School.
"Last year we graduated 15
girls," Humelsine said. "These
are girls who wouldn't graduate
otherwise. And we have eight
girls on track to graduate this
year. Some of these girls worry
that they'll drop out without
PACE."

large part through the state

teens who are not making it in a
conventional classroom setting.
Drug use, pregnancy, abuse or
just growing up in a dangerous
neighborhood are some of the
reasons girls end up in PACE.
"Some people don't even do
wrong," Myma said. "They just
come from the wrong neighbor-
hood."
"Imagine someone trying to
take away your education,"
Krystal said.
Agencies that serve kids on all
different levels have to get cre-
ative about how they deal with
major funding cuts.
Big Brothers Big Sister of
Monroe County saw the writing
on the wall and made what its
board considers a proactive
move, Vice President Julio
Barroso said.
"The hard facts are the funds
we get from the county are going
down year by year," he said. "The
fundraisers are bringing in
money, but you have to pay the
franchise for the name. The board
decided that while we won't be
paying for the name, we're talk-
ing to other nonprofits that would
absorb the mentoring program
under a new name."
Barroso said the board hopes to
announce the new partnership by
the end of the month. And while it
cannot technically hand over the
clients, the board hopes the people
who were involved with Big
Brothers Big Sisters will take
advantage of the new program.

Court upholds short-term rental law


Enforcement
set to begin
any day now
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbumrnie@keysreporter.com


A controversial law that
imposes strict regulations over
vacation rentals could soon take
effect in Islamorada, more than
two years after the Village
Council voted to approve it.
The law limits the number of
short-term vacation rentals,
defined as residences rented for


more than seven days and fewer
than 28 days, to no more than
331 throughout the village.
Rentals for fewer than seven
days are not allowed.
It also bans all vacation
rentals in areas zoned entirely
residential.
In 2006, the council passed
the law 4-0, but it has yet to take
effect because of a year-long
wait for approval by the state
Department of Community
Affairs, followed by another
year of litigation, in which a
number of property owners led

by Realtor Robert Skeel sued
DCA and the village.
Skeel and others said they
were unhappy because many
property owners purchased sec-
ond homes in Islamorada
assuming they could rent them
out weekly. Without that ability,
owners would likely be forced
to sell, Skeel says.
"We don't understand the
rationale for this change. This
village is located in a tourism
area that depends on out-of-
towners. Where will the people
that want to come down for a
week to fish, dive, snorkel or
enjoy our beautiful weather and
sunsets stay?" Skeel wrote in an
April 2006 letter to the
Keynoter.
On Feb. 29, Florida's First
District Court of Appeal ruled
in favor of Islamorada and
DCA, which means the village
can begin enforcing the law
after a 15-day period during
which the litigants can file an
appeal.
Village officials said that
even if an appeal is filed, they
doubt the court would change
its finding.
In a statement provided to


The Reporter, village officials
quoted the village attorneys:
"We do not believe it likely that
the court would alter course on
rehearing, although that
remains a possibility."
Officials said owners who
want to offer vacation rentals
will have time to apply for a
vacation rental license before
the law is enforced.


The law also requires an
annual license fee from each
unit. Proceeds will be used to
hire code-enforcement officers
to uphold the rental ordinance
and target illegal rentals
It requires the name of the
owner or a local manager and a
24-hour contact telephone num-
ber to be posted on rental units.

Couple is sought
in Monday robbery

Key West detectives on
Friday continued looking for two
suspects wanted in a Monday
robbery that took place in the 600
block of Truman Avenue, and
warn the pair is armed with a
semi-automatic weapon.
Anthony Cusimano, 27, and
Christina Stallings, 31, are want-
ed for allegedly stealing a
woman's purse as she walked
down the street with some
friends. Stallings allegedly
grabbed the purse and Cusimano
threatened onlookers with a knife
before the two escaped through
the Echo Gardens walkway.
Detectives have now linked
the two to a boat burglary in
which several items were stolen,
including a .22 caliber semi-


automatic rifle with dozens of
rounds of ammunition, police
spokeswoman Christie Phillips
said.
Stallings is white, about 5-
foot-10 weighing 160 to 170
pounds with dirty-blond curly
hair. Her bottom lip is pierced
and she was last seen wearing a
white tank top undershirt and
camouflage shorts. Cusimano is
white, 5-foot-11 weighing 140 to
150 pounds and has tattoos on
both of his arms, including a
skull in a cross on his upper left
arm. He was last seen wearing a
white tank top undershirt and
khaki shorts.
Stallings is wanted for rob-
bery. Cusimano is wanted for
armed robbery, armed burglary,
grand theft and violation of the
Pawn Broker Act. Anyone who
sees them should call 911.

By Sam Nissen

set for auction April 17 include
the Pilot House Restaurant &
Marina in Key Largo and several
other parcels in the Keys, but not
the former Cabot's restaurant or
Marathon Boatyard and Marina

Deputies hook alleged
thief from the water

A homeless Tavemier man
was jailed Wednesday after
reportedly stealing cash from the
Coconut Cove Resort and Marina
in Islamorada, then trying to get
away via foot, bicycle and swim-
ming. *
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office deputies say resort
employee Rick Delara was in the
office when Anthony Harper, 42,


entered and darted behind the
counter, grabbing a bank bag
with cash.
Delara pursued him but he got
away.
A Sheriff's Office marine unit
happened to be in the area and
found Harper about 150 yards
offshore.
The stolen cash reportedly
was found in his backpack.
Harper was charged with burgla-
ry, battery, theft and ,resisting
arrest without violence.


Professional Regulation would

could ultimately determine which
day the restaurant opens.
Inspections have taken place, he
said, so it's just a matter of get-

The waterfront building's
exterior has a fresh coat of sand-
hued paint and new landscaping,
and the awning above the door is
ready for the Frosty's logo. The
outside dining area has taken on a
more tropical look, with bamboo
and palm fronds lining the bar.
Local artists' works available
for sale will fill the walls inside..
The Frosts are still finalizing
the menu and pricing, but the
emphasis will be on seafood -
fresh and local, prepared in a
variety of ways. There will also
be meat, beef and chicken
options; as well as an array of ice
cream desserts, including a root
beer float.
Frosty's kitchen will be open
11 a.m. to at least 11 p.m. daily,
with the bar open later. There will
be music from 11 a.m. to mid-
night.

FCAT changes possible


One bill would
do away with
grading schools
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.com

Keys school officials say
they're pleased several proposed
bills are sparking debate among
state legislators over potential
flaws in Florida's schools
assessment system.
Several bills being consid-
ered by the state House and
Senate during their two-month


session that started Tuesday pro-
pose radical changes to the way
the state assesses schools -
including getting rid of the A to
F school grading system and
doing away with the 10th-grade
FCAT as a graduation require-
ment.
Under the grading system,
called A-Plus, schools are grad-
ed depending on their students'
Florida Comprehensive
Achievement Test scores and
how much those scores have
improved over the years.
Schools that go up a grade or
maintain an A receive bonus
money from the state in addition
to their normal funding, which
depends on the number of stu-
dents at the school.
Perhaps the most extreme bill
under consideration in the
Legislature is a bill proposed by
Miami-Dade Rep. Dorothy
Bendross-Mindingall, which
calls for elimination of the grade
10 FCAT graduation require-
ment and changing the school
grading system to a school per-
formance system, all by July 1.
The House Schools and
Learning Council is reviewing
Bendross-Mindingall's bill, but
the professional staff of the
Senate's Education Pre-K-12
Committee has already issued an
unfavorable review of a stronger
version of the bill, proposed by
Miami-Dade Sen. Frederica
Wilson, which calls for tossing
out the A to F letter grades
assigned to schools according to
FCAT scores.
Keys school officials say they
doubt either bill will pass but
that they're glad the bills have
created a forum for discussing
flaws in the state's grading sys-
tem for schools, which considers
only FCAT scores to determine
school grades.
S"In general, I would say that


it would be in our best interest
statewide that if we're going to
have a grading system, we base
it on other measures than just the
FCAT," Monroe County School
District Superintendent Randy
Acevedo told The Reporter.
"I would be very surprised if
it passed," Acevedo added. "I
think many would balk at not
having some assessment to say
you've passed and completed
the requirements for gradua-
tion."
Acevedo said that although
it's unlikely the bill will pass, he
thinks "the addition of other
measurements and indicators
[for evaluating schools] would
get some receptivity" among
legislators.
He said other factors, such as
graduation and dropout rates,
should be considered along with
FCAT grades in assessing
schools.
School Board member Andy
Griffiths agrees.
"I'm grateful for the dia-
logue," Griffiths said of discus-
sions sparked by the bills. "It's
always good when we can talk
about some of the shortcomings
of the programs and how we can
make some of these negatives
turn into positives."
Griffiths said he thinks poli-
tics could weaken the already
slim chance that Bendross-
Mindingall's bill would pass.
"The government supports
accountability," he said. "A lot
of these folks that are Jeb Bush
people are still there. They
would not want to put a negative
cloak on his legacy by doing
away with the A-Plus plan."

Cop quits, claims

unfair treatment


Keynoter Staff


Key West Police Officer
Matthew Klosowski announced
his resignation from the depart-
ment at Tuesday night's Key
West City Commission meeting,
claiming he was treated unfairly
for blowing the whistle on what
he calls departmental corruption.
Like suspended officer Tom
Neary, Klosowski sued the city
and Police Chief Bill Maudlin in
early December, alleging he was
retaliated against for refusing to
destroy evidence of another offi-
cer's impropriety.
Klosowski told the commis-
sion he doesn't want to be part of
a department that "attacks good
officers and protects bad ones."
On May 28, Klosowski
responded to'a call for backup
from Sgt. Pablo Rodriguez, who


was in pursuit of a burglary sus-
pect on Simonton Street, his law-
suit says. He says Rodriguez
drove over a curb and hit the sus-
pect with his car, mangling the
bicycle and leaving the suspect
bloody. Klosowski caught the
incident on his cruiser's video-
tape camera, the suit says.
Rodriguez then told Klosowski
on separate occasions to destroy
the video, which Klosowski
reported to Internal Affairs, the
suit says. It says Klosowski
refused to destroy the video
because he could be charged with
tampering with evidence.
As a result, Klosowski claims
he was denied pay, promptly
reassigned and endured verbal
abuse. The case is in Monroe
County Circuit Court.

More lawsuits filed against DoubleTree


3 more added
stemming from
monoxide poison
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The Doubletree Grand Key
Resort in Key West has more
civil lawsuits on its hands this
week after hotel visitors filed
three complaints over carbon
monoxide leaks.
The suits, filed against Key
Hospitality Healthcare Limited
Partnership, Heartland Hotel
Corp. and former General
Manager Steve Robbins, claim
adverse affects from a fourth-
floor boiler room that, accord-
ing to a state fire marshal's
report, was leaking carbon
monoxide into a nearby room.
One lawsuit, filed by attor-
ney Ira Leesfield Monday,


claims Roddy and Gwendolyn
Evans, tourists from Miramar
vacationing with their son, a
minor, suffered as a result of
shoddy exhaust-pipe repairs.
In one of the numerous
charges against the defendants,
the Evans say the hotel failed
"to call city of Key West health
and safety officials when they
knew or should have known of
a dangerous and potentially
lethal carbon monoxide gas
leak."
The others filing similar
complaints are Kenneth Dorsch
of Deerfield Beach and Ira and
Lori Stone of Miami.
The Evans stayed at the
hotel at 3990 South Roosevelt
Blvd. "on or about" Oct. 20,
2006.
The suits follow Richard
Lueders' filed in January 2007.
On Dec. 27, 2006, Richard's


son, Thomas Lueders, 26, of
Washington, D.C., died of car-
bon-monoxide poisoning after
staying in Room 416 at the
resort.
Thomas Lueders died from
the fumes while his father was
in the same room. Richard was
hospitalized and recovered in a
day, according to the state Fire
Marshal's Office.
The two were discovered by
Robbins, who attempted car-
diopulmonary resuscitation on
Thomas Lueders. Robbins later
resigned.
A summary of events
released by the State
Attorney's Office is a compila-
tion of reports from investiga-
tions conducted by the state
Fire Marshal's Office and Key
West Police Department.
It says "the vents to the door
of the boiler room had been
covered with plywood and
sealed with silicon, which pre-


vented fresh air from entering
the boiler room."
The document also says the
boiler room's exhaust pipe was
altered and "should be straight,
at a certain height, and allow
air to enter from 360 degrees.
The exhaust pipe in place con-
tained an elbow" and prevented
proper exhaust, according to
the report.
The city pulled its certifi-
cate of occupancy and the 216-
room resort was closed from
Dec. 29, 2006, to March 1,
2007.
Also as a result of Thomas
Lueders' death, Richard lob-
bied the state Legislature to
pass a bill requiring carbon
monoxide detectors in hotel
rooms across Florida by July 1,
2008. It passed last session.
Prior to Lueders' death,
Nathan, Jody and David Smith
of Iowa stayed at the resort
Dec. 21, 2006, and were later


hospitalized for carbon monox-
ide. poisoning at Lower Keys
Medical Center.
The Key West Fire
Department concluded their
carbon monoxide poisoning
was a result of a trip the family
took to the Dry Tortugas. The
vessel the family took to the
island, the Fast Cat II, had
engine problems, causing the
family's sickness, according to
the fire marshal's report.
However, after a. police
investigator met with the
owner of the Fast Cat II, the
investigator found no correla-
tion between the family's poi-
soning and the engine compli-
cation, according to the police
report.
The Smiths sued the
DoubleTree ownership in
January 2007 and settled out of
court. Leesfield wouldn't dis-
close details of the settlement.

9 Cigarettes spark fires


inomas imaging cameras
Street, help isolate
Key West blaze in attic

By KRISTEN BURNIE
.. . ..kburnie@keysreporter.com


Fire officials say smoke
detectors and thermal imaging
cameras prevented a potential
tragedy last week when a Key
Largo home caught fire with a
father and child sleeping inside.
The fire was the first of blazes
last weekend sparked by unat-
tended lighted cigarettes, Key
Largo Fire Chief Sergio Garcia
said.
No injuries resulted from
either fire..
Seventeen Key Largo fire-
fighters responded to the fire at
545 Tina Place at 10:48 p.m. Feb.
29, along with one truck each
from the Tavernier and
Islamorada fire departments.
Garcia said all occupants had
made it safely out of the house by
the time firefighters arrived.
"The mother was working at
the time," Garcia said, and the
husband and son were home


sleeping. The smoke detector
woke them up and the father was
able to get his baby boy and exit
the building." -
Garcia said a smoldering cig-
arette that was left unattended on
the porch and had caught on
some wicker chairs caused the
fire. The fire then traveled up the

outside wall, through the eaves
and into the attic.
Garcia said that because attic
fires are typically "very difficult
to locate," firefighters spent
about 15 minutes searching for
the blaze.
He said the search would have
taken much longer if it hadn't


been for the department's ther-
mal imaging cameras, which
help locate fires in walls and can
also be used to find people in
very smoky, low-visibility condi-
tions.
The cameras cost about
$10,000 each, a price that Garcia
said "is nothing compared to the
good it's doing."
"Ten years ago, before having
these cameras, there probably is
a good chance that that home
would have been extensively
damaged beyond repair."
Instead, Garcia said firefight-
ers were able to save 80 to 90
percent of the homeowner's
property.
"We're very fortunate to have
the equipment and the amount of
people that we have," he said:
A "careless mistake" with a
cigarette also sparked a fire at a
trailer on Largo Road Sunday,
Garcia said.
"A resident was smoking on
the couch, the cigarette fell
behind the couch and he didn't
realize it."
Garcia said the fire caused an
estimated $5,000 worth of dam-
age, which was contained to one
room of the trailer.

The Key West City Com-
mission passed environmentally
friendly resolutions Tuesday
night, one awarding a bid to
Flowers Chemical Laboratories,
to test water at the Garrison Bight
and Marina.
The project will cost $24,515
but is worth it if you ask George
Halloran of environmental group
Last Stand.
Halloran talked about the
marina's "degrading" water and
human fecal contamination.
"These are very detailed
tests," he said.
Commissioner Mark Rossi,
sponsor of the resolution to OK
the money, said it's a top priority
to clean up the marina, which is
in his district. Halloran said Last
Stand would like to help the
process.
Also Tuesday, the commis-
sion:


Approved a resolution
aimed at reducing city green-
house gas emissions by 15 per-
cent by 2015.
"We'll be looking at how we
can be compliant with the Kyoto
Treaty," said Mayor Morgan
McPherson, who sponsored the
resolution.
Approved a joint participa-
tion agreement with the Florida
Department of Transportation for
repairs at Mallory Square dock.
The city took advantage of a
matching $1.15 million grant
DOT is offering to fix the struc-
turally damaged dock where hun-
dreds gather for sunset celebra-
tions.
The project's aim is to replace
the pier and improve safety at the
popular location, Port Director
Raymond Archer said.
"This is a major city asset," he
added. "This is something that is
sorely needed."

Sewer commitment coming


Marina rates
also on agenda
Tuesday night
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council is
scheduled to meet in regular ses-
sion Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the
Marathon Government Center.
Agenda items include:
A resolution affirming the
city's commitment to complete
its sewer system.
The resolution states "the city
wishes to continue wastewater


and stormwater projects in a pru-
dent and fiscally responsible way
assuring that a combination of
state revolving funds, public
grants and other sources under-
writes our progress."
It also states the city has rea-
son to believe that further public
funding may be "in the pipeline"
to support the project.
+ A resolution amending fees
and rates for the use of City of
Marathon Boot Marina.
A resolution adopted Nov. 13
directed city staff not to charge
dinghy dockage for disabled resi-
dents pending the marina being in
compliance with the Americans
with Disabilities Act. A compre-
hensive evaluation of the facilities
has been completed and a transi-
tion plan has been approved to
bring the marina into compliance.
The resolution states "substan-
tial. progress has now been made
toward the execution of the tran-
sition plan and all items have
been addressed." Staff will rec-
ommend to council that a normal
pricing structure be put back in
place.
A resolution allocating one
affordable housing permit to


Habitat for Humanity of the
Middle Keys.
The organization is partnering
with the Monroe County School
Board in a project to be known as
the Habitech House in which stu-
dents at Marathon High School
will construct a home at the
school's construction lab.
The 1,100 square-foot 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.
A resolution calling upon
the School Board to allow boat
trailer and vehicle parking at
Stanley Switlik Elementary
School weekends and during the
summer recess.
The resolution states those
spots, adjacent to the city's 33rd
Street boat ramp, would be ideal
for use by recreational boaters.
There is currently a shortage of
parking for the ramp, the resolu-
tion states.
A resolution authorizing
City Manager Mike Puto to
extend a mooring-field buoy
inspection agreement with
Acqua-Tec LLC.


I'm Michael Reckwerdt and Islamorada is the home where my heart resides. I've served on Islamorada's
Village Council for the past four years. My attendance record is near perfect and I deeply care about the
plight of Islamorada's citizens, community character and environment. It is my motive and intent to leave a
better Islamorada for my children and their children. That is my vision.
As a councilman, I've taken great personal pride in having a fundamental sense of fairness for those coming
before us, as my passion is about helping others. However, this campaign is heating up and recently my
opponent submitted a position paper to another publication which was less than accurate and more than
impersonal. At times his misstatements read more like a disorganized manifesto, falling extremely short of
addressing the actual challenges of governance.
But today, let's address a couple of the central issues, along with our basic differences.
Wastewater and how we pay for wastewater has emerged as the central issue and rightly so. Why?
Because if. you factor in all of the cost plus interest, we're looking at somewhere between two hundred mil-
lion to a quarter of a billion dollars to be repaid solely by our residents if the State of Florida reneges on their
commitment of funding the 2010 mandate, and that's not the kind of debt my children and grandchildren will
appreciate.
Working waterfront is an issue throughout the Keys and unless government wants to buy the entire water-
front, then reasonable property and development rights must be allowed. I am proud of the plan my family
submitted for our marina on Stock Island that includes a 50-50 split for affordable and market rate housing
and retains 75 per cent for working waterfront. We have already taken criticism from developers for setting a
higher bar, but I believe our plan should-be viewed as a model for the entire Keys.
The differences between Ron Levy and myself are-like winter to summer, oppression to fairness and grand
visions and monumental debt opposed to responsible government. Rarely does the choice provide such
stark contrast. I ask for your vote and your support again in this election.

takes over lease
from Pantelis
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

The Waterfront Market is
now under new management,
after. Key West officials
approved the sale of the busi-
ness by then-owner Buco
Pantelis.
The Key West Bight
Management District Board
held a special meeting
Tuesday to approve the trans-
fer of the lease from Pantelis
to United Natural Foods Inc.
The .Key West City
Commission approved the,
lease transfer at its regularly
scheduled meeting that night.
Angela Langston, a repre-
sentative of United Natural


Foods, was on hand to intro-
duce herself to the Bight
Board and City Commission.
The company does not plan to
make any drastic or immediate
changes to the market, she
said after the Bight meeting.
And she told the commis-
sion the market's new owner is
"simply expanding what it
offers to our new neighbors."
A movement to turn the
Waterfront Market into a
cooperative, owned in part by
each shopper, did not pan out.
But one of the movement's
leaders, Mike Mongo, said in
an e-mail to supporters that he
considers the sale a success
since it keeps the store open.
For Pantelis, the unanimous
passing of the lease transfer
places a melodramatic cap-
stone to a saga that began last
summer.


Soon after successfully
negotiating reduced lease
terms with the city, the market
owner signaled his intent to
close shop, forced by tenuous
personal circumstances.
During the early fall and
during a close mayoral elec-
tion race Key West Mayor
Morgan McPherson engi-
neered a stay of the closing
and attempted to bring in a
potential buyer. That fell
through at the last moment.
United Natural Foods is a
national "distributor and
retailer of natural, organic and
specialty products," according
to company literature.
Pantelis and the Waterfront
Market have been in business
for 20 years.
Restaurant owners say it
serves as a vital wholesaler to
as many as 50 eateries around
Key West.

Law would limit
lifetime of
special districts
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

If approved, state legislation
that would dissolve special taxing
districts 15 years after their cre-
ation could cut funding used for
the Key West Bight and Bahama
Village.
State Sen. Ronda Storms, a
Brandon Republican, is sponsor-
ing a bill, that would limit the
lives of community redevelop-
ment agencies' to 15 years; many
of them last 20 to 30 years. If
passed, special taxing districts
that have existed for longer than
15 years would dissolve by July
1, 2009.
Both the Bight and Bahama


Village rely on tax-incremental
financing, or TIF, which provides
money to areas judged most in
economic need. A portion of
those districts' property taxes are
set aside for both funding pools.
"TIF funds have restored the
Key West Bight and are now
being used to maintain it as an
economic engine," city commis-
sioner and TIF advocate Clayton
Lopez said. "The proposed legis-
lation would be extremely injuri-
ous to Key West's most fragile
and most historic areas."
If passed, Finance Director
Roger Wittenberg says the time-
line would eliminate funding in
fewer than five years, as TIF in
Key West was established in fis-
cal year 1997-98.
Both Key West funds, which
currently have no set-life
expectancy, receive increments
of property tax revenue from both
the city and Monroe County. If
they dissolve, city property taxes
would transfer to the general rev-
enue portion of the budget, which
can be used for anything.
"The benefit of doing it this
way is you get part of the coun-
ty's increment," Wittenberg said.
"The growth in the millage in the

assessed value goes into the TIF
districts."
That means Key West would
lose about $800,000 in property
taxes devoted to those areas, he
said. That figure is what the
county contributed for fiscal year
2007-08, while the city raked in
$600,000 worth of TIF that year.
According to Wittenberg, that
$1.4 million total is split between
the two districts almost evenly.
When the funds started in 1997,
the county contributed $65,000
and the city produced $43,000,
indicating a healthy property tax
increase over 11 years.
Some residents have ques-
tioned TIF, asking why specific
areas of town receive special
funding, rather than spreading it
out citywide. Critics also claim
city officials wouldn't be griping
about a tight budget year if that
city money went directly to the
general fund.
A process called a community
redevelopment plan determines
which areas are blighted.
The TIF money pays for four
police officers assigned to
Bahama Village, funds a drug
task force and replaces lights and
other infrastructure in the neigh-
borhood.
Lopez says more than $1.5
million of the funds have been
saved up to renovate Nelson
English Park in Bahama Village.
For the Bight, most of the
money is used to pay back a bond
from the city's purchase of the
parcel from the Singleton Trust
for $18 million. Wittenberg says
there's about $12 million worth
in pending payments.
Not only could the expiration
of the funds slow those pay-
ments, but also adversely impact
repayment on a loan the city pro-
vided the Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust in 2002.
That $2.5 million loan is intended
for housing and other projects.
Wittenberg says $1.8 million in
payments remains.
City Attorney Shawn Smith
doesn't think the legislation
could "legally impact existing
areas. I believe limiting the life of
such districts is bad government
and would serve to undercut
efforts to improve communities."
According to the state Senate
Web site, the proposal was intro-
duced Tuesday and sent to a com-
mittee. A companion bill would
have to be introduced in the
House for the item to move for-
ward.

But it still wants
a FEMA break
on reimbursement
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The city of Key West
answered the Federal Emergency
Management Agency's bill for
more than $5 million in hurricane
overpayments with letters and
documents indicating the majori-
ty of work the money was used
for was a result of Hurricane
Irene in 1999.
A Florida Office of Inspector
General audit sent to the city calls
into question $7.1 million in hur-
ricane expenses.
A Feb. 22 letter from City
Manager Jim Scholl says the city
expended $4.2 million to fix
sewer damage related to the hur-
ricane. But the letter also
acknowledges about $2.9 million
shouldn't have been paid by
FEMA and the state.
FEMA's share of that $7.1
million, 75 percent, equaled
$5.32 million. Of that, the city
wants to be forgiven $3.2 million.


Thank goodness this time


THE CHOICE IS CLEAR -

The future of your Village is at stake!

Jim Rhyne will bring his Wall Street experience and proven business success to the Village Council, to get
us on the right track. My opponent's micromanagement and inappropriate meddling has cost the Village
enormous sums in consulting fees and delayed or unexecuted plans.
Jim Rhyne has a publicly expressed plan to honestly and decisively solve our wastewater crisis, in a man-
ner that is fair to all residents. My opponents have no plan. They want to "play chicken" with the State by
ignoring the law and taking a wait and see approach, while our water quality degrades.
Jim Rhyne wants the Village government to function with courtesy, respect and a sense of goodwill towards
all residents and employees. My opponent has presided over the most contentious, confused and ineffective
Village government in our short history.
Jim Rhyne has no ties to developers or special interest, nor does Jim Rhyne have a personal business
interest to protect in Islamorada. My opponents cannot honestly make those same claims.

Political advertisement paid for and approved by Jim Rhyne for Islamorada Village Council Seat 3.


Of the rest, which came frofn that
state, it wants to be forgiven
another $1 million.
Scholl's letter to FEMA refers
to records and details city staff
retrieved regarding the sewer sys-
tem to back up the city's claim
that projects were in FEMA com-
pliance before Irene hit the
island.
According to Scholl, the last
city sewer analysis was complet-
ed 10 years before the storm,
making it an inaccurate represen-
tation of the sewer system's con-
dition.
"We felt like they weren't ana-
lyzing the data correctly," city
General Services Director David
Fernandez said.
Up-to-date charts, graphs and
information from a study com-
pleted by the University of
Miami should convince FEMA of
the city's claim, city staff says.
The projects the city claims
are ineligible for FEMA funding


include sewer projects on Flagler
Avenue and in Poinciana hous-
ing, and excess debris removal.
"Hydrostatic test results
demonstrate that Stadium Trailer
Park and Poinciana Trailer Park
had a leaky collection system
prior to the disaster," Fernandez's
report states.
The worst-case scenario is the
city pays the money, Scholl said.
"It would be very tight,"
Finance Director Roger
Wittenberg told the Keynoter. He
said the money to pay back
FEMA would come from the
city's $5 million sewer grants, but
"we've just about spent all that
up."
"The general fund would have
to loan the money," Wittenberg
said. "That's if [FEMA] doesn't
give us a payment plan."
In January, U.S. Rep. Ileana
Ros-Lehtinen accompanied
Scholl and staff to Washington,
D.C., to lobby on Key West's
behalf to get the FEMA bill low-
ered.

A boater last seen at midnight
when he left his job by boat was
found by Monroe ,County
Sheriff's Office Marine Deputy
Paul Kupke Friday morning.
Co-workers reported John
Strain, 29, missing at 12:30 a.m.
He'd left work at the Island Grill

Strain was found on his 17-
foot boat, which was stuck on a
mud flat on the bayside of mile
marker 88. He was so far onto
the flat that the U.S. Coast
Guard had to pluck him off his
boat with a helicopter. He was
returned to shore, where it was
determined he was slightly
dehydrated but otherwise in
good shape.

TOUR / From 27


724 Eaton St. This land-
mark home of Shirley Freeman
and Harvey Server is included
on the National Register of
Historic Places and has a
prominent place in the history
of the island. It was built
around 1865 by the Filer fami-
ly, which used carpenters from
its shipping business to con-
struct the home.
Freeman is the widow of
Sheriff Billy Freeman, the
grandson of Jenkins Curry,
who purchased the home from
the Filers in 1920.
Many of the original floors
and Dade County pine ceilings
were retained, and there are
some murals in the paneled
double parlor dating back to
the 1920s. Visitors will also be
able to view the works of sev-
eral local artists collected by
Freeman.
1214 Olivia St. In 1998,
Curt Douglas purchased this
1903 house in The Meadows
and undertook extensive reno-
vations, transforming it into an
elegant 4,000-square-foot
home that features the best of
modern living and showcases
his collection of art and fur-
nishings from around the
world. Visitors will enjoy
paintings from Mauritius,
bronzes and paintings from
Kenya, chairs from Zanzibar
and carpets from Iran.
On the first floor, the ceil-
ings are high, the rooms open
into each other,*and the walls
are painted in bright shades of
yellow and coral. The overall
effect is one of light and airi-
ness. The glass doors at the
rear open onto a deck with a
comfortable seating area over-
looking a free-form pool with
waterfall, hot tub, and gazebo
housing a kitchen and bar for
entertaining.
Upstairs is an exceptional
master bedroom suite includ-
ing a closet larger than many
Key West bedrooms and a lux-
urious bathroom.
901 Washington St. Built
in the mid 1950s, this lovely
home of Chris Bassett and
Carey Alexander has been
given a bright new look under
the guidance of designer and
artist Debra Yates. At the side
of the house Yates has created
one of her signature mosaic


walls with a soothing waterfall
along one side of the pool.
Shades of green are the uni-
fying colors starting on the
exterior and continuing
indoors on the living room
walls and on the countertops
of the sleek, open stainless
steel kitchen designed by
Yates.
The owners have kept the
original Cuban tile and have
covered early 20th Century
rattan furniture with bright
tropical prints. Paintings by
Yates and Susan Sugar, and
some by Haitian artists, pro-
vide additional interest and
color.
920 Terry Lane. William
Holt's renovation of this
Bahama Village property
earned a 2007 Preservation
Award from the Historic
Florida Keys Foundation. The
four-year project included
extensive work on the original
part of the house, which dates
back to the early 1900s, as
well as a two-story addition at
the rear.
A 14-foot-high ceiling con-
fers a feeling of spaciousness
in the living room and dining
area. The dark wood floors,
off-white walls and upholstery
in colorful prints and subtle
shades of solid green create
the West Indian look he want-
ed to achieve.
The large master bedroom
suite on the second floor was
constructed to withstand hurri-
cane-force winds. It has a view
of the Key West Lighthouse
across the street.
114 Olivia St. Nancy
Klingener and Mark Hedden
extensively renovated this
cozy 1923 cottage and use it as
comfortable guest quarters for
visiting family members and
friends. They met the chal-
lenge to make clever use of a
small space while paying hom-
age to the original structure,
retaining the original Dade
County pine on walls and
floors. High vaulted ceilings
add space, and the walls dis-
play local art collected by the -
homeowners.
The charming Bahama
Village house is next to the
birthplace of Lincoln Perry,
Hollywood's first African-
American movie star who
gained fame for,his portrayal
of Stepin Fetchit during the .
1920s and 1930s.

He says it's the final year
because he and his wife are sim-
ply preparing for the next stages
(no pun intended) of their lives
and no one locally has come for-
ward to take it over.
Joining the visiting artists
will be local performers Heather
Carruthers, Melody Cooper,
Lina Robles, Joaquin
Romaguera, John Rudolph,
Melissa Tausche, and Dean and
Sandy Walters. The evening will
feature selections from works
like "Carmen," "Marriage of
Figaro;" "Cavalleria Rusticana"
and "Tosca," to name a few.
There will also be the 70
voices of the Keys Chorale and
accompaniment by George

It's madness, we tell you


The Waterfront's
'Reefer' reaches
bizarre heights
Reefer madness it can
happen to you!
We're serious now. The
leafy assassin leads directly to
insanity, homosexuality, death
and murder by way of campy,
vampy choreography, lyrics of
exaggeration, makeup from
Rocky Horror Hell and facial
expressions you thought
occurred only through Adobe
Photoshop.
Take a break from your
taxes and invest in a little
madness "Reefer Madness:
The Musical" (what?!) at the
Waterfront Playhouse in Key
West Tuesdays through
Saturday until March 22.
Stay home, though, if
drugged sex and stage vio-
lence offend you, or if you
have reservations about seeing
God bump and grind in a
spangly loincloth.
The concept is straight (and
we mean this in every sense of
the word here) from a 1936
church-generated movie,
"Reefer Madness," warning to
young people to avoid the
dangers of cannabis, not to
mention jazz.
It languished in the
Library of Congress until its
rediscovery in 1971 by the
founder of the National
Organization for the Reform
of Marijuana Laws, or
NORML. It quickly became a
cult favorite, and, in 2004, a
movie.


material's
reincarna-
tion as a
musical by

("Desper-
ate House-
wives")
Studney
and Kevin

Simpsons")
Judi Bradford Murphy
takes it to a
new lunatic plateau, a just and
equitable requiem for shameless
propaganda.
This production is excellent-
ly cast and costumed (Leigh
Hooten) from the sparkly
angels to the degraded drug
zombies.
Lighting by Kim Hanson
sets the mood swings in the set
that does it all. Michael
Boyer's ingenious two-level
design for "Urinetown" is
revised here to good function,
providing lots of entrance and
exit points and a cozy niche for
The Reefer Madness Band
conducted by Michael Fauss.
The skill of the dancers,
notably Denis Hyland (who
has perfect 1930s tough-guy
looks), and the nostalgic jitter-
bug choreography by Penny
Leto keep this joint jumping .
The actors, though, joyously
pull off this strenuous, madcap
paced adventure with their
characters intact.
Zany flourishes, courtesy of
Director Danny Weathers only
encourage the nuttiness.

Some go back to the 1970s

Mclntosh departs from his usual style


His new show
at Gingerbread
goes more intense
Jon McIntosh's one-man
exhibition of paintings
opens Monday with a recep-
tion from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at
the Gingerbread Square Gallery
in Key West.
McIntosh attended Hobart
College and earned a bachelor's
in fine arts in 1971 from the
Rhode Island School of Design.
He's a year-round resident of
Key West.
It's his sixth show at the
Gingerbread and will continue
through March 16. It's a leap
forward for McIntosh, for while


he has continued to explore the
viscosity of water, its reflections
and movements, this new body
of work includes urban land-
scapes and figurative pieces.
The show is not limited to
Key West; it encompasses
scenes from France, Scotland
and England, as well as the dis-
appearing landscape of Stock
Island and the Key West
Cemetery.
Composition is still the
mainstay of his paintings, and
the interplay of light, shadows
and reflections their driving
force. The visual tension set up
by the water, boats, buildings
and shadows make up the magic
of each piece.


"I do only one painting at a
time," McIntosh says. "That
way, I am totally immersed in
that single image to comple-
tion."
In venturing away from trop-
ical colors, McIntosh has
increased his palette, literally -
there's more richness and inten-
sity in his colors. The piece
"Max," for instance, is a paint-
ing of an old workboat on the
Thames River in London. The
water is a far cry from the clear
waters of the Keys, but the rich-
ness of the paint evokes a feel-
ing of the warmth of the day.
The Gingerbread Square
Gallery is at 1207 Duval St. It's
open daily from 10 a.m. to 6
p.m. Call 296-8900.


New novels focus on the Keys

Barrie's works
K eys residents and visitors
can travel to the golden
savannah of Zimbabwe at
"Out of Africa," a new show fea-
turing the oil paintings and
drawings of Lin Barrie Thursday
at the Redbone Gallery, mile
marker 81.2 in Islamorada.
An African native, Barrie
lives at the Senuko Safari Lodge
on the 1 million-acre Save
Valley Conservancy, a privately
owned wildlife reserve in south-
east Zimbabwe. There, she trav-
els out into the bush in an open
vehicle sketching the landscapes
and wildlife that present a
unique moment in time.
"I like to be directly in con-
tact with whatever I'm sketching
because I like to experience and
feel that animal or that scene in
the reality," she said.
Once Barrie returns to her
studio, she reduces her detailed
drawings down to the fewest
wide brushstrokes needed to
convey the movement and feel-
ing of her experiences. For her
backgrounds, she often forgoes
the brush for the palette knife
laying down swaths of color. She
then washes them with turpen-
tine creating an unexpected
abstract space that the subject

rOne of her favorite subjects is
the African hunting dogs that
live on the reserve.
"They are a really unique
I UI species," she said. "I like to
isic e catch the moment that they go
hunting, which may be a view of
Sid. M all of their tails disappearing or a
S* face looking at you through the
; long grass."

A lopsided 18-6 outcome
earned the Marathon High
School softball team its third
consecutive victory Tuesday.
The Dolphins stopped
Westwood Christian School on
its home field in five innings
behind a strong outing from
Vanessa Sardina. The junior
pitcher earned her second vic-
tory this year after missing all
of last season with a shoulder
injury.
"Her arm seems to be doing
fine, she pitched a really good
game," coach Andrea Murphy
said. Junior ace Megan
Gardner pitched a scoreless
fifth inning for the Dolphins.
Marathon lost its first two
games of the year against
strong Key West High School
and Westminster Christian
School teams, but now stands
at 3-2 overall.
Marathon exploded for eight
runs in the first inning and four
more in the second to build a
commanding lead early on.
Murphy said the victory was

No. 2 Angela Farello, who had

girls still managed a 5-2 victory
over MAST Academy, while the
boys fell 1-6.
Freshman standout Marisa
Brossard continued to impress,
winning her No. 1 singles match
8-3. Hooper said the match was


tied at 3-3 before Brossard won
five straight games to earn the
victory.
"The girl was a baseline play-
er and didn't like to come up. I
told her you have a tool you're
not using-your drop shot,"
Hooper said. "She did that and
was in a groove, kept the ball in
play and talent-wise was a better
player."
Farello lost 0-8, but her team-


mates at No. 3, 4 and 5 went a
combined 24-1 in their three
matches. Freshmen Rose
Bellevue and Kelsey Wonderlin
each won 8-0, while junior

Tennis Conchs sweep St. Brendan


Scammacca
brings hoops
mind to court
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

In February, Nick Scammacca,
a quick guard, made a last-sec-
ond shot to win a game for the
Key West High School JV bas-
ketball team.
His shots now, as a sopho-
more on the Conch tennis team,


are also delivered under pressure,
only with a blue Babolat racket.
Scammacca, who has a slen-
der build and bright blond hair,
said that playing basketball has
helped him on the tennis court.
"There's always pressure," he
said following an 8-1 victory
over his St. Brendan opponent in
a No. 3 singles match
Wednesday afternoon. "At some
point it helps to be able to control
yourself in those situations."
The name Scammacca is a


familiar one in Key West tennis.
Nick's sister, Gabby, is the
team's No. 1 girls singles player.
"I have beaten her, but she
wins 70 percent of the time," he
said.
Nick Scammacca has.
impressed Conchs assistant
coach Jeff Frank, a coach for 25
years at Davidson College.
"He doesn't let pressure situa-
tions get to him," Frank said.
"He's been put at No. 1 doubles
and he's handling it well. There's

pleasantly surprised by the girls
resurgence this year. They now
stand at 10-2 on the year after
being winless a year ago.
"The girls are stronger than
what I thought they'd be. Even
our younger players that don't
get a lot of time are good players
and they're young," he said.
No. 5 boys Alex Cherniavsky
was the lone winner on the boys
team, 8-3.


John Danaher (1-8), Kerry
Wonderlin (4-8), Jonnie
Lancaster (2-8) and Weston
Wiatt (1-8) lost their singles
matches and the boys dropped
both doubles contests. The boys
now stand at 3-8 on the year.

not a weak part of his game."
Scammacca's tennis educa-
tion continued later Wednesday
when he and Nick Clark played
St. Brendan's Juan Gonzalez -
a senior from Panama and one of
the best players in South Florida
- and his freshman brother
Carlos in No. 1 boys doubles.
At one point, Juan Gonzalez
whipped a shot at Scammacca's
feet that prompted Frank to say,
"You're lucky to see that in col-
lege tennis."
But Scammacca and Lark
gave the Gonzalezes all they
could handle, leading 5-2 and up
40-0 in the eighth game. But St.
Brendan came back to win that
game and four more to take a 7-
5 lead.
Two aces by Lark who
played happily and with only an
occasional "Oh, Nick" a week
after being pulled from a match
for breaking his racket tight-


ened the score at 7-6.
But then, with dizzying racket
speed, Juan Gonzalez served out
the match for an 8-6 victory.
The Key West boys team
defeated St. Brendan, 4-3, with
Andre Wallace and Justin Tomita
winning in singles and Tomita
and Clark winning, 8-1, in No. 2
doubles.
The girls team also won, 5-2,
behind victories by Rae Lark,
Rachel Walker *and Laura
Kaczkowski. Gabby Scammacca
was held out by coach Paul
Findlay so other players could
get more experience.

Track teams second
The Key West boys and girls
track teams both finished second
Tuesday in a meet at Belen
Jesuit.
Notable performers included
Phillip Young, who won the
triple jump and the 800-meter
run, and Ja'Taure Mathis, who
was first in the girls shotput.

Pitching costs the Hurricanes


Coral Shores
falls below .500
with two losses
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

It didn't matter who was on
the mound this week for Coral
Shores High School, they could-
n't throw strikes.
Hurricane baseball coach Jeff
Meyers said he used eight pitch-
ers over two games against
Ransom Everglades and North
Broward Prep this week but
the Canes fell 10-1 to Ransom
Tuesday and 9-4 to North
Broward Prep Wednesday.
"We got beat because we
walked 12 guys; our pitchers
didn't throw strikes. Twelve men
got to first base without having
to use one muscle," Meyers said
of the game at Ransom's


Raiders. "Plus, we didn't hit
their pitcher at all; he did a good
job."
The game was scoreless after
one inning, but Ransom broke
out with a five-run frame in the
home half of the second that
Meyers said included two walks,
a hit batsmen and a grand slam.
"That was pretty much the
game," he said.
The Raiders would score two
more runs in the bottom of the
third to put the game out of
reach, as the 'Canes never
threatened.
The free-pass theme contin-
ued Wednesday for the Canes (3-
4), who walked nine Eagles and
surrendered nine runs. Meyers
said a productive offensive game
Wednesday and two solid defen-
sive performances were wasted
as a result.
"All this was done in two

said. "We're playing good
defense but you can't walk that

too much for
Coral Shores
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Coral Shores' Lady Canes
softball team ran up against
Archbishop Carroll pitcher
Stephanie Martinez Tuesday, but
barely saw itself run the bases.
Martinez pitched a complete
game, allowing just one
Hurricane hit while striking out
nine, to lead the Lady Bulldogs
to a 5-1 victory on Coral Shores'
home field.
The loss put Coral Shores'
record at 4-2, with both losses
coming at the hands of
Archbishop Carroll.
"Not one of our better efforts.
We only had one hit in the first
and scored one and that was it,"
coach Paul Grewe said. "I
thought we were a little flat."
Sophomore Holly Given
threw a complete game for the


double and two RBI to lead the
team.
"It wasn't a good week for us;
the coaches have to do a better
job of coaching," Meyers said.
Coral Shores will next face
Gulliver Prep in a doubleheader
Tuesday at South Dade High
School.


Lady Canes, surrendering just
one earned run. It was errors that
did the team in.
"They had 10 hits, but if we
make a couple plays it's [still] a
1-1 game," Grewe said.
Chelsea Russell led off with a
single in the first and was even-
tually driven home on a ground-
out by Given to give Coral
,Shores an early 1-0 lead.
Carroll scored twice in the
second and the game remained
2-1 into the bottom of the sixth
inning. With two outs, an error
allowed a runner on third base to
score and the Lady Bulldogs
eventually added an additional
two runs to take a 5-1 lead.
"We made some errors and
that gave them some more
swings. The inning should be
over and it's still a 2-1 game,"
Grewe said.
Coral Shores was scheduled
to visit Ransom Everglades
Friday (results not available .at
press time) and Gulliver Prep
Monday.

Kelley Struyf was 2-for-2, also

Murphy said the team's
defense became sloppy later in
the game with the big lead. She
said just two of the Warriors'
six runs were earned.
"When you get those lop-


sided wins, you have mental
mistakes and errors. It's easy to
let [those] lapses come in, so
we want them to be sharp no
matter what," Murphy said,
noting the team's strong per-

Everglades School last
Saturday.

'Killer instinct'
lacking as loss
streak hits four
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

The Key West High School
baseball team's lack of a killer
instinct was never more evident
than it was in Tuesday after-
noon's 9-7 loss to Belen Jesuit in
a District 16-4A game in Miami.
The Conchs, who trailed 6-1
after four innings, scored four
runs in the fifth on a three-run
home run by Kyle Lepine and a
solo homer by Nolan Thomas.
They then took a 7-6 lead in the
sixth on a two-run double by
Lepine.
But Key West gave the game
away in the bottom of the sixth
when Belen scored three runs,
the last two on two errors.
"It was a situation where if we
hold the lead after battling back,
it could be a turning point in our
season," said coach Miguel
Menendez, who was banished
from the ballpark after arguing a


call in the fourth inning.
The Conchs lost their fourth
consecutive game all on the
road and dropped to 4-6 over-
all and 2-3 in the district. They
also lost to Belen for the fifth
consecutive time.
For a school that holds 11
state baseball championships, the
most recent one in 2005, this is
rare.
"We have to learn to finish
games off,". Menendez said.
"That is something the kids have
to learn on their own. We lack a
killer instinct."
Belen took a 3-0 lead in the
first against pitcher Blayne
Weller on an RBI double by
Byron Soler and a two-run
homer by starting pitcher Andres
Wiltz.
Key West got its first run in
the fourth on Ben Harrison's first
varsity home run, but Belen
came back with three runs in its
half of the inning, the third after
an apparent inning-ending strike-
out by Soler.
The ball got popped out of
catcher Joseph Gandolfo's glove


- because of batter interference,
Menendez vehemently claimed
- and Soler reached first base.
The interference claim was
rejected and .Menendez was
ejected.
In the fatal bottom of the
sixth, with the score tied, 7-7,
Belen had runners at first and
third when Soler, the runner at
first, broke for second.
Gandolfo pump-faked a throw
to second and then tried to get the
runner at third who had strayed
down the line. But his throw was
wild, allowing one run, and then
Soler scored when Harrison bob-
bled the ball in left field.
"It was a designed play,"
Menendez said, "but we didn't
execute the throw and catch."
With Menendez listening to
the radio broadcast of the game
on his cell phone, the Conchs
went down meekly in the seventh
as Charlie Walker-Yhap, Radier
Gonzalez and Harrison all took
third strikes.
Key West, which played late
Friday night, will conclude a
two-game series against North
Broward Prep at 1 p.m. today at
Rex Weech Field.

Spartans turn wide

against Lady Conchs


Pace avenges
earlier loss
to Key West
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

The Key West High School
softball team lost its first game
of the season Tuesday afternoon,
falling to Monsignor Pace, 4-1,
in a District 16-4A game at Opa-
Locka.
Pace avenged a 7-3 loss to the
Conchs (3-1 overall, 2-1 in dis-
trict) in the season opener in Key
West.
Key West errors it had six
in the game enabled the
Spartans to score two unearned
runs in the first inning and one in
the third against junior pitcher
Lindsay Yochum, who lost her
first game of the season despite
allowing only three hits.
"They were mostly mental
errors, but we will work on that


in practice," coach David
Gootee said.
Yochum provided the
Conchs' only run against
Cassandra Brown when she hit a
home run in the sixth inning
over the left-center-field.
It -was Yochum's second
career homer and one of eight
hits for Key West Kristen
Babich, Lauren Wells and Gigi
Orofino each had two, and Sarah
Rodriguez added a double.
"We hit [Brown] hard, it was
just that we hit a lot of balls right
at someone," Gootee said.
Babich was oJutstanding in
center field, making an over-the-
shoulder catch and also throw-
ing a runner out at the plate
The Conchs are playing today
in the Strike Zone Speedball
Tournament, which began
Thursday with a strong 16-team
field at Silver Lakes Park South
in Pembroke Pines.

Dolphins baseball still looking for victory


First inning
puts Marathon
in hole early
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Erase the first and last
innings, and Marathon High
School's' baseball matchup
against Westminster Christian
School would have been a
much closer contest.
Defensive woes and a rocky
outing from senior starter
George Hoffman saw the
Dolphins trailing 9-1 after the
first inning.
Marathon .would hold the
Warriors scoreless until the
boom of the sixth, when they'
piled on seven more runs to
win 16-3.
"The first inning killed us,


took us out of any rhythm. It's
hard to come back when
you're down 9-1," coach Luis
Leal said.
The Dolphins had played
close Feb. 19, losing 4-1 to a
Warrior team that began the
season atop the Miami Herald
Class 2A rankings.
Senior Sean O'Connor hit a
home run in the first inning to
give the Dolphins a 1-0 lead,
but it was quickly erased in
the home half.
Hoffman surrendered nine
runs, five earned, and allowed
five hits in two-thirds of an
inning. Senior J.P. McCabe
was brought in to finish the
first inning.
[Hoffman "just had an off
day. We had a couple errors
that let a few runs score and
we couldn't stop the bleed-

ing," Leal said.
Sophomore Jake Sjursen hit
a two-run homer in the fifth to
bring the Dolphins within 9-3,
as McCabe held the Warriors
scoreless in the middle
innings. But a seven-run out-
burst including a grand
slam ended the game in the


bottom of the sixth.
"We've been playing a real-
ly tough schedule," Leal said,
as the Dolphins fell to 0-7.
"I'm proud of the boys. Being
down 9-1, you could hang it
up, but they still played hard
and didn't give up any runs
until the last inning."

Wolaver inches to victory


Fort Pierce
angler wins
Backcountry
Mark Wolaver of Fort
Pierce caught 113.75 inches of
redfish and snook while fly-
fishing to win the inaugural
Backcountry Fly Champion-
ship.
In the tournament that
ended Feb. 23, 25 anglers
competed to catch the most
inches of snook and redfish on
fly. Rules mandated that only
two catches of each species
over the two days of fishing
could be counted toward an
angler's total inches.
Wolaver earned the title of
grand champion angler fishing


with Capt. Chris Jones of
Islamorada. Jones was named
the tournament's grand cham-
pion guide. Wolaver's redfish
were 32.5 and 32.25 inches,
and his snook were 27.5 and
21.5 inches.
"I relied heavily upon my
guide to put me on the fish,"
Wolaver said. "Chris had a
solid game plan for us going
into the tournament, he kept
me positive and we worked
well as a team."
Tim Mahaffey of Miami
was awarded runner-up angler
for scoring 112.875 inches of
fish. Mahaffey fished with
Capt. Eric Herstedt of Coral
Springs.
The largest snook, measur-


ing 34.75 inches, was caught
by Alex Cruz of Miami, who
fished with Carlos Ruiz of
Key Largo. The largest red-
fish, measuring 32.625 inches,
was caught by Frank Juliano
of Fort Lauderdale, fishing
with Jared Rascob of
Islamorada.
